America must fall. It must collapse. Things must get as bad as they possibly can. And if America collapses and the three hundred million plus souls who make up the population of the onetime greatest nation in the history of the world must fall so that Barack Hussein Obama can have a political victory, then the collapse of America is a tiny price to pay, indeed.
You must give your president his crisis so he can demonize and slander his enemies.
Imagine if George W. Bush had dictated this: exploit a political battle to make life as hard, as harsh, as bitter as you can for the poor and for federal government workers in order for the president to be able to cynically exploit a self-created crisis.
Take the very first paragraph: does anybody NOT know that White House tours are staffed almost exclusively by VOLUNTEERS??? The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats are completely home in a universe of lies, such that no matter how baldly or wildly their messiah lies, they rabidly support him. Obama is their god and the only god with whom Democrats will have to do, and they will follow their god to America’s assurred destruction.
The money quote of the article below:
“So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be”
And what did the White House scream the impact would be? Completely catastrophic. To wit: your job as a federal employee (at least until Obama uses the axe on YOU) is to ensure that the American people suffer as much as you can possibly make them suffer. You must create as many victims as possible and inflict as much harm and suffering as possible. So Obama can get his $85 billion back – [erhaps stash some of it away the way Obama’s fellow socialist leader Hugo Chavez did.
Mind you, a couple of weekends ago just before the sequestration cuts were set to implement and there was still time to find a different path, Obama didn’t think it was enough of a crisis to think twice about his golf weekend with Tiger Woods. There was no crisis; the president could go on vacation. Did Obama come to some accord on sequestration with Tiger Woods as some kind of practice session for Congress? Then he returns from his vacation Monday morning, and all of a sudden the world will end unless the thing that wasn’t a very big deal the day before – and which he proposed in the first place – doesn’t happen.
Here’s the deal: if you don’t give our Terrorist-in-Chief his tax hikes, he will sabotage every machine throughout his realm.
Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised
By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
The White House announced Tuesday that it is canceling tours of the president’s home for the foreseeable future as the sequester spending cuts begin to bite and the administration makes good on its warnings of painful decisions.
Announcement of the decision — made in an email from the White House Visitors Office — came hours after The Washington Times reported on another administration email that seemed to show at least one agency has been instructed to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.
In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.
“We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be,” Mr. Brown, in the internal email, said his superiors told him.
Neither Mr. Brown nor the main APHIS office in Washington returned calls seeking comment, but Agriculture Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack, who oversees the agency, told Congress he is trying to give flexibility where he can.
“If we have flexibility, we’re going to try to use it to make sure we use sequester in the most equitable and least disruptive way,” the secretary told Rep. Kristi L. Noem, a South Dakota Republican who grilled Mr. Vilsack about the email. “There are some circumstances, and we’ve talked a lot about the meat inspection, where we do not have that flexibility because there are so few accounts.”
“I’m hopeful that isn’t an agenda that’s been put forward,” the congresswoman told Mr. Vilsack.
Late Tuesday evening, the Agriculture Department issued a statement disputing Mr. Brown’s read of the situation. The department said Mr. Brown had suggested dividing his region’s cuts among a number of states but he was told that idea was already part of their sequester plans.
“The APHIS budget officer explained that USDA is already proposing these steps in order to avoid furloughs. USDA is committed to doing all we can to minimize the impact of sequester [for] our employees and the farmers, ranchers, and rural communities we serve,” the department said in its statement.
That’s left the administration trying to balance dire predictions with good management.
Last week, immigration officials confirmed they were releasing immigrants awaiting deportation from their detention centers in order to save money, and this week top officials said they were already seeing long lines at airports because of cuts in screenings.
But those decisions are being scrutinized as agencies continue to advertise for job openings and spend on other priorities.
The White House had to fend off questions Tuesday about the Homeland Security Department’s decision to sign a $50 million contract for new uniforms for airport screeners, just days before the sequesters.
All sides in Washington agree there should be a way to lessen some of the impacts of the cuts.
The House will take at least a step toward that Wednesday when it votes on a new spending bill for the rest of fiscal year 2013 that would mitigate at least some of the sequester impacts in the Defense Department.
Senate Democrats are looking to write an even broader bill to rearrange money in several accounts.
Mr. Obama is pushing for the broadest possible deal later this year that would raise taxes and cut entitlement spending in order to restore some of the money trimmed in sequestration.
“The president is engaging with lawmakers of both parties and will continue to do so,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters.
For now, though, the cuts remain in place — and that means the end of White House tours.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said in an email to members of Congress.
The decision drew a derisive response from Capitol Hill, where Republicans said the move undercut Mr. Obama’s promises of openness.
“If the president is unable to figure out how to keep the White House open to the American people after an 8.2 percent budget cut, then the American people are entitled to some answers from their chief executive as to why.”
The Capitol is facing its own cuts.
At the Capitol, staffers entering the building’s West Front were told Tuesday that the doorway there would be closed as of next week due to sequestration. That entrance is currently limited to credentialed visitors, so it won’t affect the public.
The article mentioned the $50 million Obama sneaked through so his brownshirts can have nicer looking uniforms. Apparently the author was unable to predict the future to know that Obama’s new Secretary of State just handed out five times that much to the Muslim Brotherhood rulers of Egypt. Maybe Obama could have stopped that deal from going through, too. I mean, heck, if we hadn’t spent that money on funding terrorists in Egypt, maybe we could have still had our beloved White House tours to ObamaLand.
Obama refused the authority to be allowed to make the cuts less painful (see also here). The Republicans in Congress voted to give the president the authority to decide where and how the $85 billion would be cut. Obama threatened to veto any bill that would spare the American people from needless suffering and red tape delays. He WANTS the American people to suffer.
It doesn’t matter that all the fearmongering Obama spewed was based on lie after lie after documented LIE. It doesn’t matter that Obama had his cabinent heads go out and just flat out lie to the American people to fearmonger the sequestration cuts and predict the collapse of America if Republicans weren’t put in gulags. Lies are at the center of Obama’s strategy, and the media rabidly protects that strategy for their god.
Democrat Maxine Waters actually said that over 170 million jobs would be lost if sequestration happened. Which is actually at least fifteen million more jobs than exist in ALL of America BEFORE the sequestration.
Democrats are as dishonest as they are demon possessed as they are rabid as they are evil.
Do you want to know why nothing can get done in America? Because, as I have learned in blogging, there is simply no possible way you can have a meaningful dialogue with dishonest slandering liars who merely keep chaning the facts and shifting the goalposts all while falsely demagoguing their opponents.
Somebody captured the thought of Thomas Sowell in this matter:
If there was a department of government that only did two things -erect statues of the Cat in the Hat -develop life-saving drugs for children
and this department was facing budget cuts, which would it cut?
The drugs for kids, of course. This would cause the most outcry and would lead to their budget NOT being cut. Whereas if they stopped the cat statues, no one would notice, and people would probably start to question why they were doing it in the first place.
We witnessed an example of that in Obama letting more than 2,000 criminally-convicted illegal immigrants GO FREE. Are you so stupid and frankly so consumed with evil that you believe he had to do that???
And thus you can clearly see why Obama doesn’t want any fingerprints on the sequester (at least beyond having created the damn thing to begin with): he wouldn’t be allowed to play those shenanigans if he had the discretion to make the cuts less painful.
Obama doesn’t WANT any deals with Republicans. He wants to force the Republicans into one impossible bargaining position – enhanced by his own and his leftist media’s lies – in hopes of crushing the GOP in 2014. If you remember Democrats’ outrage when Mitch McConnell made an off-the-cuff remark about making Obama a one-term president, and YOU were angered by that remark, why is it that you now cheer your messiah while he does the very same thing you said was so wicked (and actually DOES it as part of a long-term strategy versus McConnell’s offhand remark)??? Why is it that you have no honesty or integrity whatsoever???
If Obama were managing your household for you, and you came home glum because you were going to get a 2% cut in your salary, Obama wouldn’t allow you to make your mortgage payment and your car payment. No, he would tell you to increase your cable bill and buy yourself a new smart phone with a huge contract. Because there’s no possible way in hell to manage the staggering 2% sequestration cut to the budget. Obama would see to it that you were thrown out on the street bankrupt because there’s just no possible way to come back from a 2% cut, is there???
Why are the cuts so bad? Because there’s no flexibility, liberals say. Obama says the cuts are “dumb and arbitrary.” So let’s give the president the flexibility he needs so that they’re NOT arbitary. That way the cuts could be intentionally crafted to avoid doing any more harm to any people or programs than absolutely necessary. No way, liberals say. That would solve the problem and Obama doesn’t WANT to solve the problem; he wants to exploit a crisis. So instead of solving the problem Democrats say that the Republicans are giving them no flexibility in cutting the budget even though OBAMA is the one who refused to have the flexibility to sensibly cut the budget.
It doesn’t matter if in actual fact Obama is the one who is physically sticking the torture screws into his population; he counts on the dishonesty and deceit of the mainstream media propaganda to cover for him so he can say Republicans are responsible for the sequestration that came out of his White House and which Republicans agreed to lest they be “obstructionist” and which he then personally signed into law.
And now we can know for certain that if there was a furlough, if somebody loses their job and can’t feed their family, it was because Obama destroyed that American worker in order to make a dishonest point to the American people that America must NEVER consider ANY cuts whatsoever. Because even a tiny infinitesimal cut in our budget will lead to pain, you see.
If we had voted for Mitt Romney, we wouldn’t have had to suffer due to the national disgrace that is our president. But then again, our “choice” this election was between a guy who thinks Jesus Christ is the spirit brother of Lucifer and the guy who actually IS the spirit brother of Lucifer. Heckuva choice in God damn America where there ARE no good choices.
Do you know that as Obama invites Republican Senators to the White House for dinner, this is the FIRST TIME since 2010 he’s met with them? George Bush used to meet with the bipartisan heads of the House and Senate EVERY SINGLE WEEK; Obama can’t even muster the leadership or courage to meet with them every single YEAR.
I put it beautiful in 2008 when Obama was elected, because it remains as true today as it was then: “Obama Wins! God Damn America!”
The beast is coming. And Obama is his useful idiot.
