  • The total number of federal jobs lost to sequestration? That would be… one.

    After Congress approved and President Obama subsequently signed into law the Budget Control Act of 2011 — complete with the provision that automatic spending cuts that came to be known as sequestration would kick in on March 1st, 2013 if the so-called “super commitee” failed to come up with more specific deficit reduction measures — we were treated to all kinds of warnings about how absolutely necessary it was that Congress learn to cooperate, because sequestration would be beyond devastating. Teachers and firefighters would start receiving pink slips; TSA lines at airports would grow to prohibitive lengths; the White House...

    The Bureau of Land Management is confirming it killed six cattle as part of its standoff against the Bundy Ranch in Bunkersville, NV. “A total of six cattle died or were euthanized,” a BLM official told Breitbart News. The official listed the dead livestock cataloged by the BLM explaining, “The Bundy branded bull that was euthanized posed a significant threat to employees during the gather. The Bundy branded cow ran into a fence panel injuring its spine and was euthanized.” The dead animals listed by the official were: •1 Bundy branded bull was euthanized •1 Bundy branded cow was euthanized...

    Pollster Celinda Lake's advice to fellow Democrats to take a midway position in the 2014 congressional campaigns is flawed because it can't be sold as honest. Reacting to results from her bipartisan Battleground Poll that show Obamacare to be a political loser, Lake said: "Don't defend it. Say it was flawed from the beginning and we're going to fix it." Note that she didn't advise to reject it outright, apparently because she knows that's never going to fly with Obama and the Democratic establishment and probably because it would be tantamount to an admission that the party has failed in...

  • As Obama Delays Obamacare Again, Julie Boonstra Strikes Back

    As Scott noted a little while ago, the Obama administration has again pushed back the deadline for individual and small group policies to comply with Obamacare’s requirements. They are doing this, obviously, because they are trying to put off the political fallout when millions of Americans lose the coverage they had, and find that coverage under Obamacare will be more expensive and/or more limited. Which gives a special resonance to the story of Julie Boonstra. Mrs. Boonstra, as you likely recall, is a Michigan resident who suffers from leukemia. She filmed a television ad for Americans For Prosperity in which...

  • Krauthammer On Dems & Obamacare: "I Can't Believe It's A Coordinated Campaign, It's Too Insane"

    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, as for Harry Reid, I can't believe it's a coordinated campaign. It's too insane. I think it's Harry Reid wearing, trying on a tin hat. And I would just say, Harry, give it up. You can argue all you want but the sunrises in the west, it's not going to work. And you get this sort of speaking against the wind on things that, as Kirsten says, are empirically untrue. People are receiving cancellations. They know they lost their insurance. There is no way to talk around it. The other thing that the Obama administration, the White...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has privately offered Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a deal that would reopen the government until mid-to-late December while extending the U.S. debt ceiling until next year, according to several sources familiar with the talks. The proposal would set up a framework for larger budget negotiations with the House over the automatic sequestration spending cuts and other major deficit issues, the sources said. Moreover, Senate Democrats are open to delaying Obamacare’s medical device tax and a requirement that those receiving Obamacare subsidies be subject to income verification — but they would have to get something...

Reid was speaking with reporters after he and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had met with Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.).

    Rise! The time has come! The government is no more! Or, well, at least that's sort of what Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., said on the Senate floor Thursday morning while talking about an energy bill. "We're diverted totally from what this bill is about," he said. "Why? Because the anarchists have taken over. They've taken over the House, and now they've taken the Senate." While there are certainly Americans who wouldn't mind seeing the current Congress descend into chaos and flames, that isn't really quite what's happening today. "The anarchists" Reid is referring to are just the remnants of the...

In fact, Holder knew that his subordinates were targeting reporters. He also did not tell the truth about the New Black Panthers case. He had sworn that there was no political decision to drop the case. Not true; the decision came from the top. He again lied about the time frame in which he first learned of the Fast and Furious case. The director of national intelligence also lied, likewise while...

"It's time for Republicans to let go of their failed austerity policies that weigh down our economy and prevent a speedier recovery. We simply can't cut our way to prosperity." During President Barack Obama's first three years...

    Uh oh. Has Sen. Harry Reid been getting gun advice from Uncle Joe Biden? On Thursday, the Senate voted to move forward with gun control legislation. It’s a good thing Reid studied up on the gun-thingy lingo. Speaking on the Senate floor, he brought up the Aurora shooting. The accused shooter’s rifle was reportedly equipped with a 100-round magazine, but here’s what Reid said: The events of the last few months has been very tragic. People going to a movie theater to watch a movie and they’re gunned down? And more would have been gunned down but for the fact...

    Despite promises from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) would retain his seniority after switching parties, Specter will be put at the end of the seniority line on all his committees but one under a resolution approved on the floor late Tuesday. Under the modified organizing resolution, Specter will not keep his committee seniority on any of the five committees that he serves on and will be the junior Democrat on all but one — the chamber’s Special Committee on Aging. On that committee, he will be next to last in seniority. As a result,...
