Yesterday the House passed H.R. 1363, which funds our Department of Defense and our military for the rest of the year at their current levels. It allows for the continuation of current military operations, which is pretty important when you’re fighting three wars. It also funds the government for another week and cuts $12 billion in wasteful spending. So why would the Commander in Chief declare that he will veto this? Why would he play politics at the expense of our troops who are putting everything on the line to protect us? Memo to the President: I doubt the insurgents will stop and wait for a government shutdown to end before resuming actions. You need to fund our troops, sir.

Like me, you might be asking yourself: Why on earth would he threaten to veto funding for the troops? What is his game plan? Basically, he’ll veto military funding because he wants the rest of the government funded too. And by the rest of the government, he means things like Harry Reid’s “Cowboy Poetry.” Essentially, he’s holding military funding hostage to NPR funding. This is a perfect analogy for what is wrong with this entire budget showdown. Our federal government has strayed so far from what is constitutionally mandated that they are blind to the fact that NPR funding is not a constitutional duty. Funding our military at a time of war is!

The House GOP does not want a shut down. They just want legitimate cuts (and I would argue not even enough!). If we can’t agree to cut a billion here and a billion there, we’ll never close this $1.5 trillion deficit.

The publication of the findings of the president’s National Commission on
Fiscal Responsibility and Reform was indeed, as the report was titled, “A Moment
of Truth.” The report shows we’re much closer to the budgetary breaking point
than previously assumed. The Medicare Trust Fund will be insolvent by 2017. As
early as 2025, federal revenue will barely be enough to pay for Social Security,
Medicare, Medicaid and interest on our national debt. With spending structurally
outpacing revenue, something clearly needs to be done to avert national
bankruptcy.

 

Speaking with WSJ’s Jerry Seib, Congressman Paul Ryan (R,
WI) insisted that the deal between Republicans and the White House on the Bush
Tax Cuts was not a second stimulus and that the agreement would promote growth
despite adding to the deficit. Read more here

The commission itself calculates that, even if all of its recommendations are
implemented, the federal budget will continue to balloon—to an estimated $5
trillion in 2020, from an already unprecedented $3.5 trillion today. The
commission makes only a limited effort to cut spending below the current trend
set by the Obama administration.

 

Among the few areas of spending it does single out for cuts is defense—the
one area where we shouldn’t be cutting corners at a time of war. Worst of all,
the commission’s proposals institutionalize the current administration’s new big
spending commitments, including ObamaCare. Not only does it leave ObamaCare
intact, but its proposals would lead to a public option being introduced by the
backdoor, with the chairmen’s report suggesting a second look at a
government-run health-care program if costs continue to soar.

Palin slams Obama doctrine as some post-American theory of intervention

Palin slams Obama doctrine as some post-American theory of intervention

Posted by The Right Scoop on Mar 28, 2011 in Politics

Palin took it to Obama in analyzing his Libya speech tonight, saying that the speech was ‘profoundly disappointing’ and that the Obama doctrine is still full of ‘chaos and questions’, and is ‘dodgy’ and ‘dubious’. She makes it very clear that U.S. interests should be to take Qaddafi out or to capture him and goes on to say this:

He did not make the case for this intervention. U.S. interests have got to be met if we are going to intervene. And U.S. interests can’t just mean validating some kind of post-American theory of intervention wherein we wait for the Arab League and the United Nations to tell us ‘thumbs up America, you can go now, you can act’, and then we get in the back of the bus and we wait for NATO, we wait for the French to lead us. That’s not inspirational.

Now that’s the strength of Sarah Palin that we all fell in love with in 2008! And there’s much more.

Enjoy!

The only explanation for your hatred and especially those in the media (the new vulture of the human race), take stock. It is because you cannot be her nor can you be Governor,nor do you believe that a woman in her calibre can have a thinking brain. All those who hate her for no apparent reasons are fill with hatred because they want to be her instead.

1. So, Bristol got pregnant, you , people in the media and the rest of the hater made it seem like she is the only and only the first person (teenage girl who got pregnant outside of marriage).  You glorify when some Hollywood spoil brat gets herself pregnant… it is as if , this is the greatest  thing that have happened in their lives. Are all of you inflicted with hateful blindness.

2. Keep throwing lawsuit s, lies beyond comprehensions and what have you, against Sarah and her family, it will only provide  her the platform to gain more popularity and give her more opportunity to do what she plans to do.

3. Those of you who put Obama in the White House, will you please stand up and be counted,because us common people do not have the money to pay for his extravagance,  to pay for his Fly over, his dates and his spending. Do not forget also his butt  handshake with the King of Arabia and the tea parties   with the likes of Ahmadinejad .Since you voted for him, please provide the money to pay up all the deficit and also for the thousands of Americans, losing their jobs and their houses.. Go figure it out…This is the change you can believe in.

4. Apologising to other countries who America have helped, given freely, not only in sweat, blood and money is unforgivable. Your Obama has lowered and shamed America . You have been Organised by your Community Organizer, I hope all of you are gloating  and jumping with joy at being organised. Hope you wake up at the change you can believe in and with your eyes wide open to see what is going on.

Obama is closing down Guantamo . I SINCERELY HOPE THAT HE PLACED ALL THOSE TERRORIST NEXT DOOR TO HIS HOUSE AND SERVE THEM TEA. I am so concerned with their release and their effects on innocent people.

Another thing is abortion.. Enough that he is doing it in his own country, he needs to control the world too…..

 

Obama Abortion Agenda Launched Today
With Order Promoting Abortion in
U.S. Population-Control Program

WASHINGTON (January 23, 2009) — President Obama today signs an order that will put hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into the hands of organizations that aggressively promote abortion as a population-control tool in the developing world.

Obama’s order overturns the “Mexico City Policy,” under which funds in the U.S. “population assistance” program go only to overseas organizations that pledge not to “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”

Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), commented, “This is the first in an anticipated series of attacks on longstanding pro-life policies, as the new administration pushes Obama’s sweeping abortion agenda. That agenda includes repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which would result in tax-funded abortion as a birth control method in the U.S., and imposition of sweeping pro-abortion mandates on private employers through health-care reform legislation.

“One effect of Obama’s order will be to divert many millions of dollars away from groups that do not promote abortion, and into the hands of those organizations that are the most aggressive in promoting abortion in developing countries. President Obama not long ago told the American people that he would support policies to reduce abortions, but today he is effectively guaranteeing more abortions by funding groups that promote abortion as a method of population control.”

Contrary to some misunderstandings, enforcement of the Mexico City Policy did not reduce the amount of money spent on the program, nor will Obama’s order increase the amount (which is $461 million in the current fiscal year). Rather, the policy affects what type of groups qualify for grants under the program. “Obama’s order will predictably result in a redirection of funds to groups such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which are ideologically committed to the doctrine that abortion on demand must be universally available as a birth control method,” Johnson said.

Although Obama’s order will result in major subsidies for organizations that promote abortion overseas, the direct use of the U.S. funds to perform abortion procedures will remain unlawful under the Helms Amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act. “The Helms Amendment can be changed only by an act of Congress, but because the Obama Administration is joined at the hip with the abortion lobby, we will be watching carefully for any evidence that the Administration is failing to enforce the Helms Amendment,” Johnson said.

The details of the Mexico City Policy are spelled out in an official handbook issued by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which is available on request from NRLC (in PDF format). Basically, the policy required grantees to refrain from performing abortions (except to save the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest), or lobbying to legalize abortion, or otherwise promoting abortion as a family-planning method. The policy explicitly allowed responding to questions about where abortions may be obtained, in countries in which abortions are legal.

The National Right to Life Committee is the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide. National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect those threatened by abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide.

"Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell"? Don’t Change
By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown
As Barack Obama prepares to be sworn in as commander in chief on January 20, homosexual-rights activists are gleeful about changes he will bring to the armed services. Based on his campaign promises, Obama is expected to overturn the military’s policy regarding sexual conduct. Commonly referred to as “don’t ask, don’t tell” the military prohibits the service of openly practicing homosexuals. This policy was created early in the Clinton administration after a long and divisive fight and the hard-fought compromise has drawn the ire of liberals such as Obama ever since.
“It’s time to turn the page on the bitterness and bigotry that fill so much of today’s LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) rights debate,” Obama said while campaigning. “The rights of all Americans should be protected — whether it’s at work or anyplace else. ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ needs to be repealed because patriotism and a sense of duty should be the key tests for military service, not sexual orientation."
Not reported in the media or discussed by advocates are the opinions of the men and women actually serving our country that would be affected by this change in policy. A poll of some 2,000 active duty military taken in December by the Military Times found that 58 percent opposed a policy change. Of those polled, 10 percent said they would not reenlist, and 14 percent reported they would consider not reenlisting if the policy is changed to please homosexual activists.
Essentially, the United States military, the greatest fighting force ever assembled, has had a policy in place against homosexual conduct since its formation. This policy annoys certain liberals who want to force their social agenda on the rest of the country and ignore those affected.
Bill Clinton tried in the 1990s to end the prohibition of homosexual activity in the armed forces, but his attempt to do so was heavily criticized by members of both parties. The opposition was led by Sam Nunn, a Democrat from Georgia. After much haranguing, a compromise was reached that stated “…the prohibition against homosexual conduct is a long-standing element of military law that continues to be necessary in the unique circumstances of military service.”
Barring a pre-enlistment question about homosexuality "was the only compromise Congress let Clinton get away with," says Elaine Donnelly, president of the non-profit Center for Military Readiness which supports continuing the ban. "The law respects the power of sexuality and the normal human desire for modesty in sexual matters." There have been on-and-off efforts to repeal this law over the last few years, but those are expected to intensify with Obama’s support.
While Obama is clearly in favor of repealing this law, the question becomes, when will he push for it? Some pundits believe that Obama will act quickly because he is eager to appease the gay leaders after he upset many homosexuals by selecting Rick Warren, a staunch supporter of traditional marriage, to give the invocation at his inauguration. Obama also appears to be tapping Bill White, a gay man, to be his Navy secretary, which will certainly bring the policy regarding sexual conduct to the forefront.
As Obama weighs his options, a reason for him to pause is a Wall Street Journal survey. It found that the top issue motivating people to vote Republican, which returned control of Congress to the GOP in 1994, was Clinton’s attempt to lift the military ban on homosexuality. There is certainly no public mandate for this social change.
If Barack Obama stays true to his campaign promises, the armed forces will likely lose hundreds of thousands of troops. When our troop numbers are already stretched thin, we don’t need radical policies driving away more. Nevertheless, Obama appears poised to stubbornly buck centuries of military tradition by going against the will of the American people, as well as those in the military who will be affected by this change.
