    REICH: Obama Needs To Confront The GOP's Bald-Faced Lies Robert Reich, ContributorFebruary 26, 2013, 7:20 PMPete Souza (Official White House Photograph) The White House apparently believes the best way to strengthen its hand in the upcoming “sequester” showdown with Republicans is to tell Americans how awful the spending cuts will be, and blame Republicans for them. It won’t work. These tactical messages are getting in the way of the larger truth, which the President must hammer home: The Republicans’ austerity economics and trickle-down economics are dangerous, bald-faced lies. Yes, the pending spending cuts will hurt. But even if some Americans...

    The first lady has come under criticism for her recent media blitz, with some lambasting her for her unprecedented number of appearances on entertainment and programs. Michelle Obama has certainly made the rounds in the past week, from promoting an anti-obesity campaign with late night host Jimmy Fallon to her surprise Oscars appearance announcing the Best Picture winner. Critics complain that Mrs Obama is overstepping her reach and risks losing favor with the public for being overexposed.

    FNN Exclusive: The President, aka His Arrogance, has announced that sequestration will affect the Executive Branch, including the White House. Although His Arrogance is exempt from sequestration, Slow Joe is not. Although Slow Joe is a valued member of the White House team, Slow Joe (aka bucket of warm spit) is going to be laid off. Slow Joe said that he was disappointed, but like John Kerry-Heinz, his wife has a job and can take care of him. With all the free time, he is going to work on his hobby of being a circus clown. With his past experience...

    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified in the US Senate today and here is an excerpt of his testimony and Q&A. SHELBY: Mr. Chairman… The portfolio or the balance sheet of the Fed, you said it’s $3 trillion, more or less… BERNANKE: I didn’t say, but yes, that’s about right? SHELBY: Is that about right? BERNANKE: Yes, sir. SHELBY: But you said it then, didn’t you? It’s about $3 trillion. BERNANKE: Yes, sir. SHELBY: Is — you studied the Fed a long time before you ever came to the Fed. Has there ever been that type of balance sheet close...

We know that doing big things means all of us doing what we can, where we live. That couldn't have been clearer on Friday for the national gun violence Day of Action. We had 117 events in congressional districts across the country. Thousands of supporters joined in, and thousands more called and tweeted at your representatives, demanding real action from Washington to reduce gun violence. On...

    Is he right? I don't think so. Boehner has caved many times already and he still got elected to the speakership. How many times have I pondered 'is THIS the time the Republicans will show some backbone' and each time I am disappointed. Girding for disappointment again: WI Sen. Ron Johnson warned yesterday that he believes John Boehner would lose his speakership if he caved on higher taxes. "I don't quite honestly believe that Speaker Boehner would be speaker if that happens. I think he would lose his speakership," Johnson told FOX News' "Special Report. Boehner is sending the right...

    C’mon. What's his next move, ordering the Border Patrol to stand down because he supposedly can't afford to pay them? Oh, right. That is his next move.This makes me more enthusiastic about the sequester, just because now I'm curious to see how derelict he's willing to be in his duties to in the name of putting political pressure on the GOP. Next up: Suspending TSA checkpoints at America's airports, maybe? Where else is he going to find two percent savings in three-plus trillion in spending? In a highly unusual move, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of detainees from immigration...

    President Obama and Congressional Democrats are engaged in an assault on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Predictably, a majority in the media is softening up resistance, highlighting terrible crimes like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary and the theater in Aurora, Colorado. Politicians and pundits alike assert such mass murders warrant executive orders and Congressional legislation to limit the Constitutional right of Americans to bear arms. If you buy that, you're sliding down a slippery slope with government tyranny at the bottom. The Constitution of the United States established a government to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to...

    National Black Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Harry C. Alford told The Daily Caller that he ”ignored” President Obama’s “spread the wealth” comment in 2008 and “had hopes” for him “because he was black.” “I don’t really support him too well and he knows it and that’s a badge of honor. He’s bad. He’s bad and I supported him. I voted for him the first time around. I had hopes because he was black. Shame on me,” Alford told TheDC at the National Press Club after an anti-gun control news conference. “Then when he started doing all these executive...

    President Barack Obama said Tuesday that the nation will now have the defense secretary it needs. "With the bipartisan confirmation of Chuck Hagel as our next Secretary of Defense, we will have the defense secretary our nation needs and the leader our troops deserve," he said in a statement. "From the moment he volunteered for military service in Vietnam, Chuck has devoted his life to keeping America secure and our armed forces strong. An American patriot who fought and bled for our country, he understands our sacred obligations to our service members, military families and veterans.

    D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job. Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending. Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it...
  • Knesset Member: Bring Obama to Hevron

    In her first speech as a Knesset member Tuesday, MK Orit Strook (Jewish Home) insisted that U.S. President Barack H. Obama be brought to Hevron when he visits Israel next month. Only then, Strook said, would Obama be able to appreciate what the Land of Israel means to the Jewish people. "It would be a good idea to take President Obama not just to Mount Herzl and Yad Vashem, but also - actually, mainly - to the Machpelah Cave in Hevron," Strook said. "We would explain to him that the Land of Israel is not just a refuge for Holocaust...

Sources tell Stand With Arizona that DHS has "34,000 beds" for illegal aliens, meaning that Secretary Janet Napolitano is releasing...

    Why must Republicans always play defense? Seemingly on the wrong side of any argument? Education; you? The pending sequester cuts have the President and his minions, like a flock of Chicken Littles, running to and fro, spinning tales of planes falling out of the sky.  For some reason - whether they’re too polite, too incredulous or just too inept - I barely hear a peep from the loyal opposition. So I wrote this little story to help Republicans explain the scale of sequester cuts to their constituents and hopefully help them put things in perspective: George Finds Out He’s getting...

    The federal government released groups of illegal immigrants from custody across the country Monday at the same time the White House was making its case that impending budget cuts would harm efforts to protect the border and enforce federal immigration laws. Advocates reported “waves” of illegal immigrants being released from at least three detention centers in Texas, Florida and Louisiana. U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement confirmed the release of some illegal immigrants Monday night but would not say how many or from which detention centers. Sure, it’s not as if we have the right to know this stuff. Welcome to...

    We suppose the “logic” behind this lunacy is the dreaded 2.3% federal budget cut coming our way this Friday. The only surprise is helpful Obama aides weren’t there to sign them up for driver’s licenses and EBT cards.
