Sequestration…my take is that the Obama and the D’s are playing this “Sequestration” thing to a proverbial “T”…blame the R’s for everything, when in the beginning, it was their idea! Really. But then, that’s part of the playbook, and they are doing right well with it. I have had several civil conversations with others that I considered rather average, reasonable, middle class Americans. They not only knew very little about what was going on, but they really were bored with it all. They had absolutely no concept of the political “shell game” that is being played out by Obama and his minions. I was amazed…shouldn’t have been, but I was. Here is part of my effort to keep you informed, educated and alert to what is really going on. Read on…
5 Sequester Facts to Know Before Committing Suicide
To hear President Barack Obama tell it, the impending $85 billion in spending cuts to the federal budget known as the sequester is the worst disaster since Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars. Read the “5 Reasons” here…or watch the linked video.
Looming Sequester Anarchy: Obama Lies Yet Again
James Simpson writes: “About two years ago at this time, Republicans were issuing threats – empty threats unfortunately – to shut down the government over the budget impasse. I have republishedthe article I wrote for Breitbart at that time below. The current sequester situation is identical in both the fraudulent rhetoric the Democrats, especially Obama, are tossing out, and the way it will actually play out. When reading below, just change “shutdown” to “sequester” in your mind.
The mainstream media is complicit in the Democrats’ demagoguery on this issue, reprinting without question, White House dire assertions about the sequester’s impact.”
What follows is a copy of the article he wrote two years ago. Notice the similarity between then, and now. Bottom line, this is an attempt to smear Republicans, and to make it fearful to ever challenge “big government” again…”See, look what happens, because the R’s will resist what it takes to solve our problems…mainly, more taxes.”

Woodward threatened by White House
Bob Woodward said Wednesday that a “very senior person” at the White House told the veteran journalist and author “you will regret” faulting the Obama administration for the present fight over sequestration.
However, Marinka Peschmann writes, “Bob Woodward Retreats: Death of the Free Media.” Her article describes how this, and former, administrations have shaped the news by using threats of no access to any negative reporting.
“The dirty little secret politicians and editors do not want you to know is how access has been used by elected leaders and their political appointees to compromise the integrity of journalists for decades. Those in power do not take kindly to journalists who ask tough questions and deny them access. Editors demand their reporters have access…However access does not always mean the public is told the truth. The public is told what the players want them to know by granting access. It’s called publicity stunts disguised as news. More and more journalists act like stenographers and have abdicated their critical role as truth tellers to stay employed.”

Sarah Palin: Feds ‘Stockpiling Bullets’ To Use Against Us
Sarah Palin said: “America will eventually default on its debt and claims that the federal government is “stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest” to prepare.
“If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest,” Palin wrote in a Facebook message Tuesday.

Something Is Wrong –
Ben Stein says: “Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America…When the American media turns its back on our own religions of tolerance and adores a religion of intolerance, times are upside down. The MSM says it’s all fine, trust The Prince of Grant Park, Chicago. But I have always preferred the admonition, “Put not your trust in princes.” Something is wrong.”

Now this is really funny: Obama Fails to Register “OrganizingForAction.net”
This site now redirects those going there to the NRA Homepage. At the beginning of the year, President Barack Obama’s new 501(c)4 political nonprofit, Organizing For Action, was launched with all the usual bells and whistles. But the tech wizards at OFA forgot one important rule in today’s Internet world: Register all the iterations of your website address before someone else does.

Isn’t That Theft? Coal Giant’s $10 Million Load to Democrats is now a $10 Million Donation
by Andy Kroll
A Duke Energy official told the Charlotte Observer on Thursday that Democratic officials would not repay the $10 million they owe the company. Instead, Duke Energy will write off the loan as a business expense. Shareholders are expected to absorb $6 million of the cost of the loan.
Steal from the rich….and keep it.
In effect, Duke Energy’s “loan” has turned out to be a $10 million contribution to the Democratic convention. Duke CEO Jim Rogers hinted at this possibility in an interview with theObserver last month, when it was becoming clear the Democrats might not repay the company.
“At the end of the day, we’ll do our best to get our money back,” he said. “But if we don’t, it’s just a contribution we’re making I think for the greater good of our community.”
The decision by Democratic organizers not to repay the loan smacks of hypocrisy. In the run-up to the convention, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chair of the Democratic National Committee, vowed that convention organizers would not accept corporate money. “We will make this the first convention in history that does not accept any funds from lobbyists, corporations, or political action committees,” she said.
Yet even before the Duke loan became a straight-up donation, various convention committees revealed that they accepted corporate money. One committee took in at least $5 million in corporate money to rent Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable area and a million more in in-kind contributions from AT&T, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and Costco.
Asked about this hypocrisy, Democratic officials have responded by noting that their anti-corporate-cash pledge was self-imposed. Legally, they could use corporate money to fund their convention. Which, in the end, is precisely what they did. (Original article)
