SEQUESTER WATCH Ken Berwitz


Are Barack Obama and his administration still telling us/selling us that the sequester has cut available money, even for the barest necessities, right to the bone?

If so, then how come he and his wife Michelle (whom some critics indelicately refer to as "Moochelle"), were planning a safari for the Obama family in Tanzania...which would have cost the dwindling number of people who actually pay taxes in this country something between $60 and $100 million dollars - and have cancelled those plans only because news got out about the cost and embarrassed them into doing so.

According to a highly illuminating article (exactly what Mr, Obama fears most) from the McClatchy group:

The White House cancelled President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama's plans for an African safari after the Washington Post began asking about the trip's expenses, the newspaper says.

The story says "hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency."

The story says the pesident and first lady had planned to take a Tanzanian safari as part of the trip, "which would have required the presidents special counterassault team to carry sniper rifles with high-caliber rounds that could neutralize cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat, according to the planning document. But the White House canceled the safari Wednesday after inquiries from The Post about the trips purpose and expense, according to a person familiar with the decision."

Lovely.

Is there now any doubt, even to the most avid Obama apologist, that, even as Obama & Co. cry in despair over how little money this 1% drop in the 3,7 TRILLION dollar budget leaves us with, when it comes to their creature comforts - including celebrity bashes at the White House and vacation after vacation - no expense is to be spared?

And this is what we re-elected for another four years?  Shame on us.


ARMING SYRIA REBELS Ken Berwitz


I should have known.

No sooner do I compliment President Obama on his restraint in not choosing between a mass murderer (al-assad) and al qaeda infested rebels....

he chooses al-qaeda infested rebels.

STAY OUT OF IT.

BOB W So right you are! every move this ass makes makes no sense. he should be arrested for treason.  (06/14/13)


THE PHONY BALONEY IRS INVESTIGATION Ken Berwitz


So the Obama administration is investigating the IRS scandal, right?

Well, how come FBI Director Robert Mueller has told a house committee that he does not know the name of the person leading this investigation?

And how come none of the groups claiming to have been targeted has ever been interviewed by anyone associated with this investigation?

Put another way, is it not 100% clear that this is a phony-baloney fraud, and no serious investigation is taking place at all?

That's right.  A phony-baloney fraud of an investigation, from a phony-baloney fraud of an administration,

How can anyone seriously believe a word that comes from any of them?  From the top on down?

Zeke .... ... ... Just how much confidence does anyone have in what this administration says. ..... ..... They lie to our face. .... .... ..... (06/14/13)
