What New Conservative Members Need to Know About AIPAC
Roll Call reports today that teams of AIPAC lobbyists are fanning out across the Capitol in an effort to block sequester cuts for Israeli foreign aid. We’re talking about a $155 million cut from $3.1 billion, for goodness sakes. Nonetheless, here’s a novel idea that would kill two birds with one stone. Egypt receives about $1.5 billion in foreign aid per year. Additionally, Obama is | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 32
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. The sequester that went into affect March 1st has President Obama lying about who came up with it (he did), how bad the cuts are (not bad), and how evil the Republicans are for letting them happen (they aren’t). Facebook made $1.1 billion in pre-tax profits in 2012. | Read More »
Sequester pain promises the first Obama intends to keep
Who cares if the stimulus bill failed to keep unemployment under 8% or that health insurance premiums are up despite the enactment of Obamacare into law. President Barack Hussein Obama promised that the sequester would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs, and you can take that promise to the bank (presumably including | Read More »
Obama Administration admits Benghazi failures, Woodward sequester claims
Republicans need to learn when they have won an argument, rather than continuously demanding more “answers” to supposedly unanswered questions or more explicit admissions, from Democrats; whether it relates to Benghazis, sequesters, etc. Very early in the aftermath of the September 11, 2012 attack on our consulate in Libya, we learned the following from reliable reports and Obama Administration statements: Terrorist attacks at or near | Read More »
The Sequester Gift Bag
As you all are probably aware, the Oscars were this past weekend, and as usual, the gift bag was huge. It was at a five year low $47,803, mind you, but by the standards of us poors, it was gigantic. So that got me thinking, what kind of gift bag would our beloved Congressmen and Senators get from President Obama for putting up with this | Read More »
As Your Friend, I Say You Will Regret This
span>Media members will regret attacking Bob Woodward for revealing, and insisting, that the sequester originated in the White House. They will regret more not realizing that a viable First Amendment requires a press in loyal opposition to the government. But even more, they will regret being the champions of reckless government spending.
Attack on Woodward reveals Obama dependency on media cover
Voters must be continuously misinformed for Democrats to win electoral majorities The real story arising out of the White House attacks against the reporting of Bob Woodward on the sequester budget cuts is not whether Gene Sperling’s email was a veiled threat of retaliatory action lest retractions be forthcoming. Maybe Valerie Jarrett is already on the phone to David Gregory to persuade him of better | Read More »
Defund Obamacare or Bust
It’s really simple, folks. Everything boils down to Obamacare. Do we really believe that Obamacare will make private health insurance unaffordable? Do we really believe Obamacare will bankrupt the nation and relegate the next generation of Americans to a dimmer future of less freedom and opportunity? Do we really believe Obamacare will create incorrigible dependency? Dow we really believe that Obamacare will lead to a | Read More »
Obama: Sequester Sadist, not Chicken Little
The economic sky is falling, but not because of puny, across-the-board decreases in previously scheduled spending increases* set to be imposed on March 1st. Conservatives and Republicans that opposed the economic policies of President Barack Obama enacted into law by his Democrat Congress in 2009-10 aren’t Chicken Littles either, since their warnings that the Stimulus, Dodd-Frank, and Obamacare wouldn’t produce a recovery worthy of the | Read More »
How Many Demons Can Dance On the Head of a Sequester?
span style=”letter-spacing: 0px;line-height: 1.3em”>Our government is too big. The crisis of the moment, the so-called sequester, won’t do anything to change that. Our nation needs a plan to reduce government spending dramatically, rapidly, and in accordance with our needs. Until then, however, the sequester is better than nothing, and far better than any proposal to change it.
Obama Cabinet Portrays Weakness In Sequester Hysteria
As we barrel toward sequestration, cabinet members across the board reach out to those bent on our destruction. Each one must take a turn in the broadcast of weakness being created by pending, and ominous, budget cuts set to proceed this week. Our southern borders will no longer be safe as we cut the number of officers patrolling; our national security is at risk as | Read More »
YOUR OWN, PERSONAL SEQUESTER
I went through my cable bill (actually, DirecTV) this month and knocked out what I really didn’t need and made a promise to not order any movies that weren’t available on Amazon Prime. When I was done taking a meat cleaver to my DirectTV budget, I had actually reduced my total monthly nut by 1.5%… The government “sequester” is a 1.2% “cut.” Do you see | Read More »
Subjects, Citizens, Guns and The Sequester
OK Americans, you; and I mean you personally, have a serious ego problem. You are not grateful enough. President Obama works so hard for you, and you don’t show him adequate love. He’s had it. He won’t be putting up with any more of your shenanigans. Therefore, you are going to get both gun control and sequestration – good and hard!
You see, some people are actually bringing up the point that sequestration was a proposal put forth by The Executive Branch. The audacity of these peons! They think they are citizens when in fact they are subjects. Morale Conditioner, Chuck Todd lectures us on how to think properly harmonious social thoughts.

CHUCK TODD: Of all the dumb things Washington does, this “who started it” argument has proven to be one of the dumber ones, especially since we’re so close to the actual cuts going into place.
Demons and Villains and Scare Mongering Running Amok
Obama’s shameful exhibition last week warning against the spending cuts set to automatically go into effect on March 1st is a perfect example of why this president is no leader. Drunk on his reelection, he truly sees himself as the Chosen One, the political messiah who is destined to lead this country by using the bully pulpit. Trotting out firemen and police officers as stage | Read More »
A normal person’s (as in non-politician’s) perspective on the Sequester… Or How I Came to Love the Sequester
Senator Everett Dirksen famously once said “A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon, you’re talking real money.” If his billion here and billion there added up to $44 billion then he’d have been talking about the Sequester that seems to be everywhere in the news today. For those not familiar with the Sequester, it is the mandatory cut in federal spending set to take | Read More »
