Well, well…even the MSM is beginning to back up a bit on this “Sequester” business. So we have to cut 2% of the Federal spending over the next 7 months. TWO Percent! And the spending will still increase! So what’s the problem? It has been said that if we could freeze Federal spending, we would be out of debt, as a nation, in 5 to 7 years. But Congress just can’t seem to come to the point of “not spending more!” What do we have to do with these Congressional Fools to make them realize we can’t afford their spending habits? Ok…off my soap box, let’s look at a hodge podge of articles this evening…BR
Obama’s Sequester Deal-Changer
So…Obama really was the originator of the “Sequester Deal.” Bob Woodward points out what happened in in 2011 when the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House. They were the brainchild of White House Chief of Staff, Jack Lew, and Rob Nabors, White House Congressional Relations Chief.
Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.
So when Obama blamed the Republicans yesterday, he lied! Plain & simple… Read the rest of the article here…
Drive-Bys Change Tune on Sequesteria?
Rush Limbaugh shocked the news world yesterday by saying “For the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country!” Then he went on to show how “we are all being played for a bunch of fools, a bunch of suckers on this sequester business.”
But it now seems the Drive-By Media is changing their tune a bit. This article quotes a number of Liberal news reporters actually saying the Sequester wouldn’t cut Federal spending, & that perhaps the impact would not be felt for several months. In fact, they are postulating that perhaps, just perhaps, Obama cried “fire” too soon…wow!

Obama’s Speeches Chilling
J.D. Longstreet, a conservaative Southern American with a 30-year history in the broadcasting business, is a veteran of the US Army and US Army Reserve. He says that given a choice, he will NOT listen to an Obama speech. “Be afraid. Be very afraid. No mere mortal should have that kind of power over his fellow human beings. It is too easily misused. It is raw power—and it is corruptible.”
He talks about Obama’s oratory skills, and says that Obama “scares the hell out of me.” You can read the entire article here…
Jon Rappoport’s Blog has been censored from Facebook, and is removed even if you copy and post it (with his name and/or blog name attached). He writes in this Blog that he has solved the problem by having people go to his web site. You can find his original article detailing the censorship here.
So what was his nefarious crime that led to this censorship? He wrote about Obama’s “State of the Union” address: “Ruthless State of the Union: Current Crime Boss Speaks.” He deals with Obama’s claim that we all need to ‘work together’. He also details links between the CIA, Facebook and the huge infusion of cash that sent Mark Zuckerberg and his fledgling college enterprise on their way to be the powerhouse Facebook is today. But…he also posits that perhaps FB is also a source of incredible information for the CIA…hmmm. Read the rest of the story here…
Blueprint NC: How a Shadowy Left-Wing Hydra Plans A Targeted Attack On NC Repurlicans
This past Thursday, the Charlotte Observer ran a story about a leaked confidential memo released by a below-the-radar shadow group called Blueprint NC. The confidential memo revealed a left-wing plan to attack North Carolina’s governor and other conservative leaders.
As part of a two-year plan to “Eviscerate, Mitigate, Litigate, Cogitate, and Agitate,” the memo outlines a strategy to target Republican Governor Pat McRory and other conservative leaders.
Read the rest of the article with copies of memos and who is involved. Interesting…are we surprised??

Benghazi: Obama Made No Calls, Took No Action During Benghazi Attack
We are going to eventually get to the bottom of this stinky mess, but I’m not sure how long it will take.
Guy Benson writes in this article that it has been confirmed through Lindsey Graham’s unrelenting line of questioning of Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, that “not a single military asset was deployed to help rescue besieged US personnel in the course of a terrorist raid in Benghazi, Libya. The September 11, 2012 attack lasted nearly eight hours, during which four Americans died, including our sitting ambassador. Multiple requests for increased security in the weeks and months leading up to the massacre were denied. Urgent warnings that the Benghazi consulate couldn’t withstand a sustained attack were ignored.”
He also asks some very pertinent questions: “Who conceived of the false talking points and why were they employed at all, let alone for days? Why were requests for security upgrades repeatedly turned down, especially since our intelligence knew of at least ten active jihadi groups operating in Benghazi at the time? If the Commander-in-Chief wasn’t in contact with his top people throughout the raid, and if he wasn’t ordering the full might of the United States military into motion to protect the lives of our diplomats (which he’s claimed is his “number one” priority), what was he doing over those eight hours?”

Where Was Obama? – Panetta Testimony was Cover for Obama
This Benghazi thing is not going to go away. There was too much covered up that will come to light, eventually. Glenn Beck has a take on why Panetta was covering for Obama.

Texas Senator Cruz Shaking Them Up – My goodness, all he is doing is asking questions, probing for the truth. Amazing! Apparently Cruz has ruffled some feathers and rattled some cages in his no holds barred approach to his job. So much so that he has even begun drawing comparisons from liberal media critics likening Cruz to Joe McCarthy and that age of McCarthyism of the early 1950’s.
So what was he doing? He was grilling Obama’s pick for Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel during a confirmation hearing on Jan. 31. Cruz is asking for financial records to either prove, or disapprove, whether Hagel received money from extreme or radical groups, from Saudi Arabia, or directly from North Korea.
The author writes: “It pleases me to see the Democrats & Republican RINO’s expressing their umbrage & indignation. It pleases me to see those gutter sniping character assassin Uruk-hai of Obama’s State run liberal media wringing their hands & fretting themselves into a lather! It pleases me to hear their hypocrites whining because of one man who is actually living up to the campaign promises he had pledged to his constituents! As if that is an unspeakable crime unheard of in the absurdly incestuous environment which exists in the bubble shared by both this perverse media & these venal politicians! Do these iniquitous idiots not even have a grasp as to the image they project to the people who must live here in the real world outside of their insulating bubble that separates them from us? Do they have no concept whatsoever?! Their abject disconnect from reality is incredible! Then we wonder why we have no leadership in our country.” Great questions!
Voter Fraud…revisited –
Chuck Hagel is becoming the center of several controversies, & here you find a major controversy: voter and election fraud.
“The Conservataive Watchdog” blog chronicles the following: “Chuck Hagel has been tapped by Obama for Secretary of Defense, which has resulted in a slew of push backs over his troubling record: criticism and lack of support for Israel; coddling of Hezbollah, Hamas, and Iran; and his almost immediate appointment after retiring as a senator to Deutsche Bank’s Americas Advisory Board, the mega bank that has been accused of funneling billions of dollars to Iran’s nuclear program. But the most troubling aspect of Chuck Hagel is the fact that he may have stolen both of his senatorial elections.
“In 1992, Hagel was CEO of Election Systems & Software, maker of computerized voting machines. On March 15, 1995, Hagel resigned as CEO but kept millions in stock options and declared that he was going to run for the U.S. Senate in Nebraska. Although he was a virtually unknown candidate; although he ran against a former governor, Ben Nelson, who was hugely popular; and although all the polls prior to the election indicated Ben Nelson would win the election, oddly Hagel won by a landslide with 83% of the vote. It later turned out that Hagel’s voting machines had been used in virtually all of the precincts.”

Media Noticeably Quiet on Obama’s Policy of Targeted Assassinations of Citizens Abroad
Greg Campbell writes: “A leaked memo from the Obama Administration has outlined the official policy of the United States in regards to the assassination of American citizens on foreign soil.
The leaked memo explained that drone strikes used to kill American citizens that are suspected of being engaged in terrorism is legitimate and lawful.
Instead of explaining that if Americans get mixed up with terrorists who are fighting against us, they might get killed (which I think most of us would agree with), they stonewall & retreat behind their evasion, obfuscution & silence.
