As I watched the President’s press conference yesterday, my jaw actually dropped as he stood before the American people and lied his keister off! Just when it might seem he had something intelligent to say, he just did what he always does and lied through his teeth. I could not believe it, he has surpassed even his own documented record of BS!
Here, let me remind you of a couple of hundred documented lies, which you can read by clicking here.
How is it that Obama can talk for almost an hour and not tell one single truth except to say, that he will not negotiate? It literally boggles the mind of any rational human being.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said Tuesday that President Obama has “committed impeachable offenses” and that the House could hold a hearing to impeach.
“We can have an impeachment hearing in the House, and in my mind the president has committed impeachable offenses,” Bachmann told conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries in an interview first detailed by Right Wing Watch.
Bachmann was careful to distinguish between the House’s ability to impeach the president, which she said would merely be a “stain” on his record, and the Senate’s authority to remove the president from office, which she acknowledged would be unlikely in the Democratic-controlled upper chamber.
How much more petty can they get?
Via SF Chronicle:
The federal government shutdown has washed away – at least for now – a long-standing sand castle contest that raises money for arts programs at public schools.
The contest was to take place Saturday at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, with teams from 26 public elementary schools collaborating with adults from design-related firms to build fantastical structures of water and sand.
But the 30th annual contest was postponed “indefinitely” on Tuesday. The beach is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which has furloughed most of its employees and revoked all event permits until there’s a resolution of the standoff in Washington, D.C., over funding for the 2013-14 federal budget.
“We are in purgatory right now,” said Julie MacDonald, executive director of Leap, the San Francisco nonprofit that uses the contest as a fundraiser to support its art education programs in Bay Area schools. “We have every intention of holding the event, but we’re powerless to reschedule until the government is fully operational.”
Let’s face facts. President Nutcase thinks he has the moral authority, the executive power, the popular opinion, the media help, and the military backup to make a coup.
Using the springboard of that Chinese chestnut “opportunity in chaos,” Obama has intentionally created a government partial slowdown (not “shutdown”) to create a government meltdown. By permitting the CR to go unsigned, Obama believes he has sealed forever the necessity to have a budget. Unfortunately for him, the budget is a function of law, not desire, just like adultery is a sin, not a behavioral choice. It’s mandatory.
Having usurped the budget process through various means, including offering his own budget voted down unanimously, Obama has transformed the way we look at capital expenditures, as if they are at the whim of any particular chaos or need, whether real or manufactured. Case in point: the sequester. The media relayed the false message that the United States would suffer under a sequester. The fear factor did not work, the sequester was signed by Mr. Nutcase, and thereupon no pain no strictly linked to it, making his threat invalid.
Family Security Matters
It’s another ugly symptom of the partial government shutdown — and this time it impacts the families of soldiers who are dying for their country.
The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that, as long as the budget impasse lasts, it will not be able to pay death benefits to the families of troops who’ve been killed in combat.
“Unfortunately, as a result of the shutdown, we do not have the legal authority to make death gratuity payments at this time,” said Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, a Defense Department spokesman. “However, we are keeping a close eye on those survivors who have lost loved ones serving in the Department of Defense.”
House lawmakers, though, are planning to vote Wednesday on a bill to restore funding for the payments. And Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday accused the Obama administration of needlessly withholding the money.
Boehner claimed a bill passed by Congress and signed by the president last week to pay America’s troops should have given the Pentagon the latitude “to pay all kinds of bills, including this.”
“I think it’s disgraceful that they’re withholding these benefits,” Boehner said, urging Obama to sign the bill that the House will take up on Wednesday.
The bill would still have to pass the Senate before arriving on Obama’s desk. If that bill fails to pass, the Pentagon says, families will be reimbursed once Congress passes an appropriations bill.
The Pentagon says it has specific instructions from its budget office not to make payments for deaths that occurred after 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 30, 2013.
Over the weekend, four soldiers — two of them Army Rangers — and one Marine were killed while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. The bodies of the four soldiers will be returned to Dover Air Force Base on Wednesday.
