  • Shocker: The White House misses their budget deadline, again (The fourth time in five years)

    The White House is legally required to submit a budget to Congress on the first Monday in February of every year — which evidently means little-to-nothing to the auspicious Obama administration. The White House already warned the House Budget Committee that, yeah, they probably weren’t going to be able to get that done on time… and, lo and behold, they are indeed going to fail to submit a budget by the prescribed deadline, for the fourth time in five years. Paul Ryan is not amused: “I’m disappointed the President has missed his deadline. But I’m not surprised. In four of...

    President Barack Obama may have to reach out more to Democrats on Capitol Hill if he expects to win their support for his aggressive second-term agenda, reports Politico. In interviews with dozens of Democratic members of Congress and senior aides, Politico found many are frustrated and angered by what they perceive as the presidents disregard for cultivating relationships with his party colleagues. This comes at a time when the president is preparing to take on everything from taxes and immigration reform to gun control and climate change, and needs Democratic backing to get legislation through Congress.

    Coach is Right ^ | 2/4/13 | Doug Book
    Being a good, Democrat-run state, Minnesota has decided to build an ObamaCare exchange, turning all healthcare rights and choices of its citizens over to the tender mercies of federal death panels and untrained, IT technicians in Washington, DC. But if anything, thats the GOOD news for unsuspecting Minnesotans! For all information currently considered personal will, at the stroke of a keyboard, become known to countless bureaucracies throughout the State and federal governments. As the Citizens Council for Health Freedom explains it: Buried in the text of the Minnesota Obamacare Exchange bill (MNHIX) [is] a tiny but controversial section allowing free-flow...

    The Department of Homeland Security just posted a video called "Options for Consideration Active Shooter Training Video." Its grossly incompetent guidance on how to survive a workplace shooting underscores the Obama administration's total lack of fitness to tell citizens what kind of firearms they can own for self-protection. We should also make sure that as many police as possible see this DHS video, which portrays law enforcement professionals as incompetent buffoons who recklessly endanger their partners and innocent bystanders. Duck and Cover versus Huddle like Sheep The DHS video takes a cue from the much-maligned "Duck and Cover" film of...

    The decline in the countrys fourth quarter GDP isnt President Obamas fault, says Press Secretary Jay Carney. If you want to blame someone, blame the Republicans. It is Carneys contention that opposition to the Presidents agenda is what is causing uncertainty in the markets. As anyone in business can tell you, uncertainty discourages investment and hiring. What the country needs is unity, Carney advised. The sooner everyone gets in step and marches to the same beat the sooner we will be able to pull the nation out of the recession we inherited from George Bush. The Republicans in Congress need...

    The Lid ^ | February 4, 2012
    As the Second Half of yesterday's Super Bowl game was into its second series of downs half the stadium mysteriously lost power and the game had to be delayed almost 40 minutes. Players on both sides killed time by stretching and passing the ball while commentators talked their way through an outage. In the end it was some sort of surge which blew a circuit breaker, but the complicated lighting system of the Superdome takes a long time to "reboot." One interesting part of the story is that on Super Bowl Sunday the Department of Energy posted a story bragging...

    White House Council of Economic Adviser Chair Alan Krueger has begun his monthly statements on the nations employment situation with nearly the exact same sentences almost every month since November 2011, just after he was installed as one of Obamas most senior economic advisers. With the exception of some variation in the May 2012 statement, Krueger has mailed it in every month, not bothering to change a thing in the opening lines of his commentary on the statistic that is perhaps more important to Americans. Kruegers statements are released by the White House the morning the latest employment numbers become...

    It's easy to understand why the mainstream media ran with the heart wrenching story about Notre Dame football player Manti Te'o's "dead girlfriend" as well as the other conflicting stories about the couple's "relationship" without engaging in actual journalism. The story happened to fit within the approved media template and didn't require any further manufacturing. But with President Obama, the MSM must work overtime to positively spin everything he says or does before it is passed on to the public as objective "news." It finally took a member of the new media -- Deadspin -- to do some actual investigative...
  • The Canary in the Culture (HHS mandate shows how Obama's government defines everyone's morality)

    American Thinker ^ | 02/04/2013 | Tom Trinko
    In the olden days miners brought canaries into mines because canaries were very sensitive to toxic fumes and would keel over quickly, giving the miners time to escape before they were rendered unconscious. The HHS mandate is serving a similar function in modern American culture. It's making it clear that liberals believe in an all-powerful government, not the government empowered by the people that is enshrined in the Constitution. Historically in America, the government has rarely collided with the religious beliefs of even extreme groups. A few exceptions, such as Mormon polygamy, were based on common values shared by the...
  • Housing Pickle: Food Stamp Growth Outstrips Employment Growth

    Confounded Interest ^ | 02/04/2013 | Anthony B. Sanders
    One of the most important measures for housing is employment. And while payrolls are SLOWLY improving, but food stamps are growing at a much faster rate. This is from Bloomberg Briefs: An ongoing concern is that growth in jobs continues to be dwarfed by the surge in food stamps. During the first 10 months of 2012 there were 1.01 million new additions to the USDAs Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), a 2.2 percent increase. During the same period, the number of nonfarm payroll jobs increased by 1.5 million, a 1.1 percent gain. The results from the end of the recession...

Today is session 23 in the typical 17- to 25-session duration of a "buying stampede." Such skeins only have one- to three-session pauses or pullbacks before they exhaust themselves on the upside. While a few have lasted for 25 - 30 sessions, it is very rare to have one last for more than 30 sessions. That said, this one feels like it will extend towards the State...

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama says the Boy Scouts of America should open its membership to gays and lesbians when its national executive board discusses the issue this week. Obama praised the scouts as a great institution that promotes young people, giving them lifelong leadership training and opportunities. During a pre-Super Bowl interview on CBS, he said no one should be barred from that. The Boy Scouts announced last week it was considering replacing its longstanding ban on gays with a policy to let troop sponsors make their own decision on the issue.

    Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today. But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis. The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do. Every normal and decent American wants...

    President Obama to push gun control proposals at Minnesota stop Associated Press Posted on February 4, 2013 at 6:08 AM Updated today at 6:41 AM WASHINGTON (AP) -- The fate of his gun proposals on Capitol Hill uncertain, President Barack Obama is seeking to rally support from the public and law enforcement community for his calls to ban assault weapons and install universal background checks for gun buyers. Obama will pitch his proposals to stem gun violence Monday in Minnesota, a Democratic-leaning state where officials have been studying ways to reduce gun-related attacks and accidents for several years. His visit...

    Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we dont know about? And, if thats why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department? I have some theories. Many of you will remember a story I broke a long time ago about presidential candidate Barack Obamas little-noticed announcement that, if elected in 2008, he wanted to create a civilian national security force as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department. Heres what he actually said at a campaign stop...
