Skip to comments.Obama’s Sequestration Scam
Posted on 02/24/2013 8:49:31 AM PST by Kaslin
The economy is in freefall. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Walmart calls their sales a total disaster.
But dont panic. Our fearless leader Obama is just back from a Swing State you know, the kind of place where you work on your golf swing. He was consulting on the economy with Tiger Woods and Butch Harmon. While Michelle was playing in Aspen. You wouldnt accept this storyline if it was a fictional movie script. Too unrealistic.
This country under Obama is becoming one big scam. A Ponzi scheme. Obama is the guy running the Ponzi, playing the role of Bernie Madoff. But the mainstream media is his accomplice.
Exhibit A is the so-called Sequestration. It was the Obama administration that gave us the sequestration. Even Bob Woodward the famous investigative journalist says, The Sequester was Obamas idea.
Now Obama gets back from his tough golf weekend with Tiger and claims sequestration is the end of the world. Funny, Obama never mentioned it was his idea. He never mentioned that the specific Obama lackey who created the idea was Jack Lew- who Obama has just nominated to become Treasury Secretary.
Thats right- sequestration is such a bad idea, causing such an economic crisis, that Obama is rewarding the guy who thought it up by putting him in charge of the entire U.S. economy. Where are the screaming headlines in the mainstream media pointing out that Obama is the worlds biggest hypocrite?
To make this Saturday Night Live skit even funnier, Obama the man of the working people, the man of the middle class, first picked a tax cheat, Tim Geithner, as his first term Treasury Secretary. Then for his second term, he picked Jack Lew- who invests his money in a Cayman Islands fund housed in the building that Obama has called the greatest tax scam in the world .
With guys like that in charge of the economy and our tax system, it sure sounds like a Ponzi scheme to me.
Obama also claimed that the sequestration cuts will cause job losses among policeman, firemen and teachers. Why isnt the media pointing out that policemen, firemen and teachers are hired on the local and state level. Oops, Obama is caught in another fabrication.
And by the way arent there other government employees besides policemen, firemen, and teachers? Shouldnt the media point out to only bring up those three classes of employees is complete deception- like a conman selling his con?
Did you know the average government janitor is paid $600,000 more over his lifetime than a janitor working in the private sector?
Why doesnt Obama mention janitors when we talk about cutting government spending? Because the image of a government janitor or meat inspector would not bring tears to voters eyes. It wouldnt sell his Ponzi scheme. The media says nothing.
Why doesnt the media point out that Obama spent us into bankruptcy by adding almost $6 trillion to the national debt in only four years. If anyone loses their jobs, its not because of the miniscule $85 billion sequestration. Thats a spit in the ocean. Its because of the $6 trillion of reckless spending over the past 4 years. Obama is the one to blame for people losing their jobs. Why doesnt the media point that out? Their silence makes them accomplices in the Ponzi scheme.
Why arent they pointing out that the economy is in shambles, gas prices have risen 32 days in a row, WalMart executives are calling sales to start the year a total disaster thats a quote while President Obama, a Democrat who supposedly cares about poor people and working-class people golfs with Tiger Woods in Florida, works on his golf swing with Butch Harmon, and parties at billion dollar resorts on Valentines weekend with the worlds most notorious womanizer with the press denied access with his wife on a separate vacation in Aspen. Do you think the media would be silent about all this if the Presidential couple partying in Florida and Aspen were Ronald and Nancy Reagan?
The reality is we have an economic crisis, bordering on a total collapse, because of specific Obama policies. He spends too much. He taxes too much. He wastes our money on green energy. It isnt working. The chickens are coming home to roost. The first quarter is a total disaster because Obama raised income taxes on the rich and payroll taxes on the middle class. When you tax people they have less money to spend.
At the same time, everyone is getting hit with rocketing gas prices, while Obama wastes your money on solar energy scams on wind energy scams on electric cars that no one wants to buy on fraudulent biofuel standards that are impossible to obtain. Obama declares millions of acres of oil-rich lands off-limits to drilling. His EPA policies drive coal out of business. And we wonder why gas and energy prices are skyrocketing?
The economy is in meltdown because of Obamas policies. In response, he spends his weekends consulting with Tiger Woods and Butch Harmon. Yet the media says nothing. Just another day in Obamageddon.
The sequestration isnt the threat folks. The greatest threat to the future of America is Obama.
So you are a 911 truther?
....and Reggie Love.
I didn’t read the whole thing but, from what I DID read, he sounds like he is dead on target!
Personally, if these measly “cuts” result in all this reduction in government, I say bring it on!
Based on your non-answer I am going to assume you are a 911 truther.
Our local propaganda outlet had a story this morning about the effect of these cuts. Less funding for Head Start? Good. The program is worthless anyway. Fewer TSA and air traffic controllers? In my neck of the woods, no one can afford to travel. Less funding for “education?” A joke since 75% of students here taking the SATs last year failed and we have among the highest dropout rates in the country, despite billions of dollars already spent on “education.” Huge percentage if furloughed government employees? I bet if we lost 90% of those employees, no one would notice.
So far, I don’t see a downside to sequestration, at least not here.
I’m not familiar with “truther” used about 911, I assume it’s about NWO conspiracy with the hijackers? I don’t believe the NWO orchestrated or caused it, but I do believe they saw it as an opportunity and have taken advantage of it.
I was very naive at that time. I remember telling people in the days after 911 that “maybe now some good can come out of this, Bush will seal the borders now and start tracking down and deporting people here illegally”. I have to laugh at my own ignorance now.
I also thought the Chief Justice of the USSC would uphold the Constitution too.
Based on your statements I will ask you; do you think that anyone in the US govt was involved in a conspiracy to perpetrate the 911 attacks in NY and DC? Or had prior knowledge of same?
You’re asking the wrong questions. On purpose?
Pfl. Very confused about whether there are real cuts to the DoD in the sequester. Quick searches on wiki say yes. Rush and other typically reliable conservatives say no, it’s just reductions in growth.
“Obamas Sequestration Scam”
“Obama’s [fill in the blank] scam”
It’s all a scam with that chucklehead in the White House.
Obama has no choice except to force the sequester to take place. When the economy disintegrates over the next two years prior to the congressional elections he will blame the economic catastrophe on the fact that we had the sequester. He will blame the Republicans for this even thought it was his policy from the White House that proposed the sequester and was passed by a Democrat Senate and Republican House. The media will repeat his lies also known as talking points.
If the sequester does not happen, the Demonicrats will be wiped out in the next Congressional Elections. This battle is not about the economy but the battle for control of the House and Senate in two years.
The Republicans should propose two budgets. One that is exactly the same as last years. This budget will be rejected by the Senate. The second proposed budget should have the tax increases that Obama says he "really" wants. However, those tax increases would expire in two years. The tax increases will have a very negative effect on the economy and insure that the Demonicrats own the disaster. The House should send the budgets to the Senate every day they are in session and let Harry "corrupt" Reid reject it day after day after day. Let the Senate Demonicrats own this along with their socialist quasi Marxist leader, President Obama.
Give Obama the economic policy he "says he wants" but for only two years and not one day more. The people will then get to vote on the results in the next elections.
I am puzzled why a President that is 1000 and 1 percent governed by political power associate with someone that has become a political liability. It does make one go HMMMMMMMMMMMMM, pun intended.
Personally, if these measly cuts result in all this reduction in government, I say bring it on

You can’t really take ANY of these clowns seriously.
All we have heard the last 2 wks is all the dire ‘things’ that are going to happen.
Of course EVERYONE was on ‘vacation or break’ from the rigors of the inauguration/lame duck session/break, the absolutely terrifying ordeal of the ‘Pre/Post Christmas Break’, the strenuous ‘Pre/Post Thanksgiving Break’ which followed the arduous and draining ‘Reelection Break’ which came after the ‘Fall/Labor Day Break’ which was close on the heels of the ‘Summer Vacation Break’.
I certainly hope “Chicken Little and Friends” are getting ‘Frequent Flier’ miles.
I would venture to guess that nary a ‘Czar’ has been let go, and the ‘last check’ written by the Treasury etc will go to ‘OUR LEADERS’.
The only ones that haven’t really taken a break are obozo and ‘the press’.
obozo is taking his ‘world retirement’ tour right after securing another 4 yrs, the press is lapping it up after him and “WE” are basically like a dog chasing his tail - with more and more ‘revelations’ as to the character etc of the idjits that are leading us....
NOVEMBER 6 was the day for THAT TEST - not p’in and moaning about it 4 mos later with 44 months staring us in the face. The way things are going we are going to lose the House in 2014, so all that is needed is an ‘accident’ involving a SCJ or 2 and we are going to be in deep kimchi.... well deeper.
You can almost ‘bet’ that any ‘New Supreme’ will be near the minimum age and so far left he/she will almost be ‘right’. Or some ‘true’ patriots along the lines of Clinton(s) or Gore (Too old, BUT very scary).
Naturally in 2016 (if it should matter) Moochelle and Jill will be offered to ‘continue’ the job of the total dismantling of the Country. The ‘R’s will counter with either another Bush or some Very Left Leaning Candidate.
Solution? Admittedly I have none BUT for starters
We ‘ground’ AF 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - Marine 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.
With todays Communication ‘Miracle’ ANY of our leaders can reach out to the citizenry via “Closed Circuit” and not bring all the drama of Road Blocks, Security, and General Frustration to the area where ‘they’ are trying to pull more wool over our eyes’.
Hell, he could pull an FDR and bring back the ‘Fireside Chats’ and commandeer ALL the TV and Radio Outlets OR TWITTER or TWEETER or whatever it is called - it would be cheaper than keeping AF1 idling at Andrews.
The ‘real gutty’ Reps/Sens refuse their ‘check’ (sure it is grandstanding and they will get it eventually)
I wasn’t in Sep 2001. I am now.
It kills me how absolutely inept the Republicans are at getting this message out past the corrupt MSM. This mornings shows should have been spent tearing down the straw men set up by the questioners and every opportunity taken to make this point. Instead, they wish to appear as reasonable negotiators rather than going on the hard offensive.
The real story here (and should be aggressively investigated and reported) is the complicity of the "media" to always blame the Repubs. We've gone from "sequester is bad" to "it was planned all along" and back to "sequester is bad", all the while the "media" has painted the Repubs as the bad guy.
Based on your statements I will ask you; do you think that anyone in the US govt was involved in a conspiracy to perpetrate the 911 attacks in NY and DC? Or had prior knowledge of same?
Limbaugh is part of the conservative entertainment complex. He is a distraction, used to make you think you have a say in things when you really don’t. He is all part of the Kabuki theater staged by the propagandists.
Ok if the planes were drones then where are the real planes and all the people that were on those flights? Are they on some guarded small island, maybe we could write screen play me and you.
Clean up in aisle 5, 9/11 Truther Trash, spilled all over everything.
Very liberal tactic. You cant refute what I say, so ask the Moderator to delete my comment. Worthy of the dummies on DU.
< sarc > I mean it is perfectly believable that the us government hijacked those four planes, simultaneously launching explosive laden drones, that looked exactly like the planes, then killed all the passengers and kept all a secret for 12 years running. plausible right? < /sarc >
I wouldn’t bother “refuting” the idiotic meanderings of the truther mindset, and, um most of DU agrees with YOU!! You’re home, not mine.
Oops, did a you’re instead of your there. Hate whenever I see anyone do that, lol.
Yea well, there is NO WAY Bush knew about 9/11/2001 as you say.
There were 4 planes and 3 buildings involved in 9/11. There is no “unused” portion of the Pentagon. I would like to see you get in the building, much less with explosives, and in any way shape or form set a bomb off. You are whacked by the kool-aid drinking morons like Michael Moore. The Pentagon is the government, but it is also the military. There are secrets in the military you would literally commit suicide if you knew about them. Go to a James Bond marathon and leave us alone.
Leaving the best for last... the TV Networks were complicit with the Bush Admin? HAHAHAHA
You are digging a deeper hole full of s***. No entity, not even the US Military could get rid of 4 planes full of people and have any chance to cover it up in a digital world. Any one of a number of people talked to their families on their cell phones with live reporting of what was going on in the air, before the plane crashed in Penn. You must have hit your head. Go see a doctor.
This is a TROLL! Love the Patrick Henry reference from the great state of Virginia!
Thank you for the source of this crap.
I think you missed the point. The government spends about $188 million per day of which 46 cents on a dollar is borrowed. $85B is just the beginning. We have to get rid of 1/2 the government to be able to afford them at all.
You have obviously given this a lot of thought and your post reflects it. I agree with just about everything you said with the exception of “There is not one damn thing Obama can do to stop it, even if he does utilize sound and sane economic policy relative to tax and spending.” I’m still mulling that part over.
The problems we are now facing and will continue to face belong not just to Obama, but the entire Congress, the SCOTUS AND Obama.
Regardless of whether Obama gets the sequester or not, he will blame the ‘Pubbies; blame they have largely earned by NOT speaking up, NOT staying true to their conservative roots and NOT going to the American taxpayers and saying “this is what the Democrats are REALLY doing . . . . . . “ By FAILING to protect America from the Marxists pigs, they have betrayed their oath of office and their obligation to the Founders to ensure that, if the Founders could come back to America today, they would find an America better than the one they left.
Absent a civil or revolutionary war, there are steps that can be taken that may still preserve the remnants of America and allow us to restore the country to the beacon of freedom the Founders envisioned. What I am thinking of is for the red states to secede, re-form as the America the Founders created and ban ANY Democrats, leftists, liberals, or takers from living in OUR America.
“If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” That was the credo of the first Pilgrim settlers and should be the credo of the new America, excepting only those who are mentally or physically incapable of working. I have other suggested changes on my about page here at FR.
At the end of the day, I have to agree with you that our future is already written. If not secession, civil, race or revolutionary war is likely staring at us from the not too distant future. Our government is irreparably broken and CANNOT be fixed at the ballot box. Too many here think it can. I am convinced, as I think you are, that we are beyond that point.
The only question now is, what emerges afterward? Will there be a new America, two Americas (one for liberals and one for conservatives), or any America at all? We know that we can survive the future as a free an independent nation, but is there the will to do so?
Do NOT post 9/11 truther conspiracy crap to FR! Take it elsewhere!
I’d be more than happy to.
From Sequestration to Stimulus; from Benghazi to bullets, this entire Admin., the WH Mussolini on the Potomac to Reid-Pelosi have been frauds and scams. But...as long as 53% of the Moron Voters prop these leftist Dems up, the dice are tossed. No one nowadays , especially with the MSM as Progressive lap dogs, can stop this bunch from making us a socialist state. When the Knight on the White Horse does come from the Conser side, it could be too late for our Const , our Republic and our free enterprise system. I pray not.
If you need an understanding, then go to the Democratic Underground and start a discussion about right to life, or the benefits of capital punishment. You make Jim R. the reason why you don’t get the message out to people because he deletes your posts. I don’t think you can see that given enough time and “evidence” I could convince you that the earth is flat. The idea that Bush knew and the government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks is just false. What do you think about the conspiracy of Obama and his Admin. orchestrated the attacks on Benghazi? They certainly didn’t take them seriously, but they most certainly conspire and to be complicit in the attacks. Try to examine a minimum of 5 alternative sources of information before you make up your mind instead of only ones that further your conspiracy theory.
