“We’re going to have to keep marching…..” Does Barry REALLY believe that HE is in the same league as a person of MLK Jr.? Evidently the CBC thinks that as well..
Obama said Republicans in Congress are willing to throw the economy into peril in their effort to defund the Affordable Care Act. Some in the GOP have also threatened not to raise the debt ceiling in an attempt to block ObamaCare.
First false statement. The House passed their CR with that, AGAIN Barry SPENDING alive. Stupid as they are. But he just ADORES calling that debacle named after him. Speaking of an Obama, has he noticed that Kenyans seem to be killing others, that ARE NOT MUSLIM. Which brings us, once again to his “dreams of” Daddy AND of course himself, isn’t that correct Barry Soetoro?
“Let me say as clearly as I can: It is not going to happen. We have come too far. We have overcome far darker threats than those,”
AND while alluding to COLOR, equates himself to MLK Jr. with this gem:
“We’re going to have to keep marching. And I’m proud that I’ll be, at least for the next three and a half years here in Washington and then a whole lot of years after that, I’m going to be marching with you,”
- Department of Transportation inspector general asked to probe allegations that supervisors warned FAA employees that a Republican takeover in Washington could mean the pink slip.
Two federal agency supervisors allegedly warned employees earlier this year that a Republican takeover in Washington could threaten their jobs — comments that some workers apparently took as guidance on “how to vote” and that one group claims may have violated federal law.
‘Scuse me, but this fucking agency, along with janet “my my admits he’s gay” AND this entire administration, MUST GO. In fact, you could toss in both houses of congress..
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger got searched by a Transportation Security Administration employee while going through a security checkpoint at LaGuardia Airport in New York Friday, The Washington Post reports.Kissinger, who was in a wheelchair, was told by a TSA agent that he needed to be searched.
“He stood with his suit jacket off, and he was wearing suspenders,” freelance reporter Matthew Cole told the Post. “They gave him the full pat-down. None of the agents seemed to know who he was.” Cole added that Kissinger was given “the full Monty” search.
“The staff at Harborview determined that the damage to the child’s eyes was consistent with repeated exposure to bleach, and ruled out any possibility that the eye dropper had been merely cleaned with bleach,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement according to The Associated Press.
News from The Hill:
The Energy Department will announce later Wednesday that is has finalized a $737 million loan guarantee for a Nevada solar project.
The decision comes several weeks after Solyndra, a California-based solar manufacturer that received a $535 million loan guarantee from the Obama administration in 2009, filed for bankruptcy and laid off 1,100 workers, setting off a firestorm in Washington.
Say, doesn’t IDIOT Reid hail from Nevada? I know, coincidence right?
Cantor is the only Jewish Republican currently serving in Congress. anti-Semitic, maybe? After all, it IS Harry Reid..
Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid apologized Saturday following reports he had privately described then-candidate Barack Obama during the presidential campaign as a black candidate who could be successful thanks in part to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
WASHINGTON — The White House brushed off congressional demands for a detailed report outlining U.S. objectives in Libya, a move likely to stoke further anger on Capitol Hill over President Barack Obama’s decision not to seek lawmakers’ consent for the military operation.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that administration officials were already answering questions about Libya in briefings on Capitol Hill. A House resolution calling on Obama to provide more detailed answers was “unhelpful,” Carney added, suggesting that the administration has no plans to formally respond within the 14-day window outlined in the measure.
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) – After 10 years of bloody battle in Afghanistan, the United States is trolling for Taliban officials to talk peace with before the July drawdown of American troops. Washington‘s special envoy, Marc Grossman, has a one-point agenda: to reconcile Afghanistan’s warring…
..The Taliban, Al-Qaeda along with other varieties of this Neanderthal Islamic cult, sense victory and further their thinking that their way, did in fact defeat the U.S. and coalition forces.
THIS, will not slake their thirst for more and more blood..
Mean while, back at the ranch..several local officials in Abbottabad and elsewhere in Pakistan continued to express doubt that government authorities were unaware of bin Laden’s presence in the neighborhood.
The White House “chief security officer” and his/her suggestion, is sounding like the typical “I lived next door to a serial killer, but never knew”. “He was such a nice guy, always friendly..yada, yada, yada”. OR Sheriff Dupnik in Pima County, AZ. concerning Jared Loughner. Several reported instances about Loughner, being a complete pyscho, including hostility relating to Representative Giffords, yet did nothing except blame “right wing” broadcasters for his mental illness.
The former chairman of the National Labor Relations Board told FoxNews.com that a board attorney’s bid to stop Boeing from opening a production line at a non-union site in South Carolina is “unprecedented” and could have serious implications for companies looking to expand.
The comments Tuesday from Peter Schaumber add to the roiling debate over the complaint filed last week against the aerospace giant. NLRB’s acting general counsel, taking up allegations from union workers at a Puget Sound plant in Washington state, had accused Boeing of violating federal labor law by moving to open a second 787 Dreamliner airplane production line in South Carolina.
The complaint hinged on claims that Boeing made “coercive statements” regarding union-led strikes, and then retaliated by transferring its second line to a non-union facility. As evidence, the NLRB noted that a Boeing executive said in an interview that the overriding factor in going to South Carolina — a right-to-work state where unions cannot force employees to join — was a desire to avoid disruptions. The union in Washington state has led several strikes against Boeing since the 1970s, most recently in 2005 and 2008.
Obama to Boeing: Drop Dead
Claire Berlinski, Ed. via http://pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/119027/
In what may be the strongest signal yet of the new pro-labor orientation of the National Labor Relations Board under President Obama, the agency filed a complaint Wednesday seeking to force Boeing to bring an airplane production line back to its unionized facilities in Washington State instead of moving the work to a nonunion plant in South Carolina.
Do I need to explain how many kinds of wrong this is? Not only is the federal government saying to Boeing that it gets to decide where it puts its production lines, it’s telling South Carolina it may as well not enact laws designed to attract investment. All that’s missing are the words “Five Year Plan.” (me thinks she means, Stalin Style)
Remember those two recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board? The guys making these decisions about the commanding heights of the American economy have never even been confirmed by the Senate.
BTW, if Republicans are as stupid as has been reported, they need to be replaced. Of course everyone in D.C. needs to go with them, by hook, crook, or tarred and feathered, straddling a pole..
