Political fallout from sequestration continues…

Obama ushered in his second term by throwing U.S. national security over the fiscal cliff.

Afterward, the Obama Administration failed to provide any evidence that the federal government has been damaged by the sequester. In fact, the federal government was so capable of handling the required “budget cuts” that the Obama Administration worried the American people would favor additional budget cuts to rein in out-of-control government spending.  In order to advance its agenda, the Obama Administration instructed federal agencies “to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.”

Obama was so intent on deceiving the American people that his administration “overreached three times… attempting to illustrate the negative impact of the sequester spending cuts in the short term, giving fodder to those seeking to play down the impact of the cuts. On Monday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told reporters that major airports had seen lines ballooning to 150-200 percent their normal size. The Transportation Security Administration later clarified that it was not yet seeing longer-than-normal checkpoint lines… On Friday, meanwhile, President Obama said that janitors at the U.S. Capitol would receive a pay cut due to the sequester cuts. Carlos Elias, the superintendent of the U.S. Capitol building and the Capitol Visitors Center, quickly emailed employees to say “This is NOT TRUE,” adding that “The pay and benefits of EACH of our employees WILL NOT be impacted.”… The prior Sunday, Education Secretary Arne Duncan had said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall.” He later acknowledged that he “misspoke” after fact checkers found no evidence for the claim.”

There have been so many absurdities coming from the Obama Administration after the sequester that it’s difficult to keep count:

Michelle Obama and John Kerry present an “International Women of Courage Award” to an anti-Semitic 9/11 fan

“On Friday March 8, Michelle Obama will join John Kerry at a special ceremony at the State Department to present ten women the Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage Award.” One of their honorees is Samira Ibrahim, who uses Twitter to publicly broadcast her virulently anti-Semitic views: “On July 18 of last year, after five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed a suicide bombing attack, Ibrahim jubilantly tweeted:  “An explosion on a bus carrying Israelis in Burgas airport in Bulgaria on the Black Sea. Today is a very sweet day with a lot of very sweet news.”… Last August 4, commenting on demonstrations in Saudi Arabia,she described the ruling Al Saud family as “dirtier than the Jews.” Seventeen days later she tweeted in reference to Adolf Hitler: “I have discovered with the passage of days, that no act contrary to morality, no crime against society, takes place, except with the Jews having a hand in it. Hitler.”… As a mob was attacking the United States embassy in Cairo on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, pulling down the American flag and raising the flag of Al Qaeda, Ibrahim wrote on twitter: “Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning.”

Yes, you read that correctly: The First Lady and Secretary of State are presenting an “INTERNATIONAL WOMEN OF COURAGE AWARD” to a person who celebrates the 9/11 terrorist attacks and praises Hitler.

Update: Thanks to public outcry, “The State Department announced Thursday the administration will not present an Egyptian political activist with an award until reviewing anti-Semitic and anti-American statements made by the activist on Twitter.”

Obama’s support for Egyptian President Morsi is repulsive.

After encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embracing Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sending $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government, it’s readily apparent that Obama has sacrificed both American and Israeli national security.  Morsi has been meeting with Iran’s genocidal President Ahmadinejad, has expressed his desire to “destroy the Jews and their supporters,” and now: “Mohammed Morsi described Jews as ‘descendants of apes and pigs’. The Muslim Brotherhood leader is also reported to have asked Egyptians to ‘nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred’.”  Isn’t it amazing that America is going into a downward spiral of debt slavery so that Obama can spend American taxpayer dollars to prop up Morsi’s destructive Egyptian regime?

This anti-Semitic dictator is VERY happy to spend your tax dollars, thanks to Obama:

Update:  Secretary of State John Kerry has announced that the United States is going to give an additional $250 million of American taxpayer dollars to Morsi’s repressive regime in Egypt.

John Kerry is a disgrace.

Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry has displayed his ignorance for the world to see.

First, he decided to skip Israel on his first trip abroad as Secretary of State, and visit Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qater instead. Then, we found out that he’s scheduling his second dining experience with Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad, who’s brutally killed more than 24,000 Syrian civilians since March 2011.

But now we realize that John Kerry isn’t just immoral and insulting to our allies– he’s also ignorant of world affairs:

“Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It’s Congress… He called the budget impasse a threat. The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs. Kerry said legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.” Otherwise, he said his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.”

Actually, John Kerry never had any credibility as a diplomat.

… which is why Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov didn’t bother to return John Kerry’s phone call for 6 DAYS.

Update: The oh-so-illustrious John Kerry has already made a ridiculous gaffe: “On the eve of his first trip abroad, John Kerry invented the Central Asian country of “Kyrzakhstan.” He was attempting to praise U.S. diplomats’ work in emerging democracies in the region, and said “they support democratic institutions in Kyrzakhstan and Georgia.””

Update #2: John Kerry just keeps ’em coming! He’s now been quoted expressing “his “hope” that “Iran itself will make its choice to move down the path of a diplomatic solution.” In response to Obama’s “diplomacy” policy, Iran has been ramping up its nuclear program, initiating proxy attacks against Israel, and threatening to kidnap Americans. Iran’s government spokesman announced that Obama’s foolish offer of diplomacy toward Iran shows that America has “failed.” And John Kerry is here to make sure that America keeps failing.

Update #3: John Kerry has made a bizarre ‘defense’ of U.S. 1st Amendment freedom of speech during his European tour: “In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be.”  John Kerry is trash talking Americans abroad, and the U.S. Secretary of State doesn’t have a right to be stupid– a mere 1  month into the job, he deserves to be impeached.

Obama supports radical Islam in the Middle East

We already know that Obama encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embraced Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sent $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government. We also know that Obama attacked Libya and opened a window for radical Islamists to take over the country— which led to the brutal terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya by “militia associated with Al Qaeda.” Some of those same participants subsequently killed American hostages in Algeria.

Recently, Obama nominated an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Secretary of Defense who was endorsed by Iran’s foreign ministry. VP Joe Biden also raised the possibility of direct U.S.-Iran talks, despite the fact that the U.S. has never before agreed to one-on-one talks with Iran’s genocidal and illegitimate regime.  Iran is extending its influence in the Middle East, due to Obama’s failed foreign policy– Ahmadinejad recently made the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Tehran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. To top it off, Iran-supported Syria is getting a visit from Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry— where Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad will dine with John Kerry “again” after killing more than 24,000 Syrian civilians.

Frighteningly, Secretary of State John Kerry opened his confirmation hearing by saying “that he will do his best to implement “President Obama’s vision for the world”.”

Obama insults our ally Israel again and again

It’s easy to lose count of how many times Obama has insulted Israel (America’s #1 ally in the Middle East) and its Prime Minister Netanyahu.  Here are only the latest stories:

Update: “John Kerry will skip Israel as part of his first trip abroad as secretary of State, the Obama administration announced Tuesday… Kerry will instead visit nine nations in Europe and the Middle East – Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qatar.”

Prior evidence of fraud in the 2012 Election

Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan predicted that Obama would win in a “landslide.” Meanwhile, political polling experts including Frank Luntz predicted a close race in which Romney would narrowly win.  Political expert Peggy Noonan’s analysis led her to believe that Obama was “fighting for his political life.” Former Clinton advisor and political commentator Dick Morris predicted a major Romney win.

I guess we should ask singer-songwriters for future election predictions. But then again, maybe a lightweight like Bob Dylan is only useful when he’s predicting Democratic wins against a backdrop of voter fraud and illegal electioneering.

Updated: Early voting for the Democrats was down. Election Day voting has always favored the GOP. Yet *somehow*, Mitt Romney received less votes than John McCain did in 2008 and less votes than John Kerry did in 2004. In the midst of 23 million unemployed, more than $16 trillion debt, 47 million Americans on Food Stamps, and other obvious economic woes felt by Americans across-the-board which can’t be covered up by the mainstream liberal media… we’re supposed to believe that Romney received less votes than McCain and less votes than Kerry?  When the Tea Party is fired up, Republicans are impassioned, and conservative Americans increased their campaign efforts in battleground states to an unprecedented level (knocking on 19 times more doors in Ohio than McCain campaigners did 4 years ago)?  SOMETHING DOESN’T ADD UP. The election results don’t match the historically accurate Rasmussen or Gallup polling data. Enthusiasm for Obama is way down, and Republicans rallied around Romney after highly-successful presidential debates. Maybe it’s news stories like this that lead to understanding: In 13 Philadelphia precincts, Obama received 99% of the vote– yet, voter turnout in Philadelphia was only 60%.
