The Anti-First Amendment WH: Barack Obama White House Threatens Veteran Journalist Bob Woodward … “You Will Regret Doing This”
SEQUESTERGATE: Chicago-style politics at its worst … now they are attacking the press.
The Empire Strakes Back … Not only does the Barack Obama White House not like the Second Amendment, it would appear that they also have a disdain for the First Amendment and “Freedom of the Press”. A senior White House official threatened Bob Woodward in an email stating, “you will regret doing this”. The “this” that is being referred to is veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s not carrying the water for Barack Obama like the rest of the liberal, corrupt media complex when last week Woodward called out Obama for what he said was “moving the goal posts” on the sequester by requesting that revenue be part of a deal to avert it. Woodward had previously stated, “So when the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts… [T]hat was not the deal he made.” How dare anyone go against the imperial president Obama and call him for what he is, a liar. As stated at the PJ Tatler, Woodward spoiled Obama’s plan to blame the entire sequester on Republicans, then allow the cuts to hit, and blame them again.
So what does the Obama WH do, attack a member of the press and try and trivialize him. So much for “Freedom of the Press”. Woodward stated, “It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in.” What must the rest of the MSM be thinking, who have never displayed a spine or journalistic integrity when reporting on President Obama?
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
During CNN’s “The Situation Room” interview with Wolf Blizer veteran journalist Bob Woodward stated that that a senior White House official threatened him saying, “It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.” Bob Woodward calls the Obama Administration Mickey Mouse. Well, if the ears fit …
“[W] hen the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts,” Woodward wrote. “His call for a balanced approach is reasonable, and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made.”
Transcript from Real Clear Politics:
WOLF BLITZER, CNN: You’re used to this kind of stuff, but share with our viewers what’s going on between you and the White House.
BOB WOODWARD: Well, they’re not happy at all and some people kind of, you know, said, look, ‘we don’t see eye to eye on this.’ They never really said, though, afterwards, they’ve said that this is factually wrong, and they — and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top –
BLITZER: What was said?
WOODWARD: It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.
BLITZER: Who sent that e-mail to you?
WOODWARD: Well, I’m not going to say.
BLITZER: Was it a senior person at the White House?
WOODWARD: A very senior person. And just as a matter — I mean, it makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in, and even though we don’t look at it that way, you do look at it that way.’ I think if Barack Obama knew that was part of the communication’s strategy, let’s hope it’s not a strategy, that it’s a tactic that somebody’s employed, and said, ‘Look, we don’t go around trying to say to reporters, if you, in an honest way, present something we don’t like, that, you know, you’re going to regret this.’ It’s Mickey Mouse. (The Situation Room, February 27, 2013)
Isn’t this something? When Bob Woodward was reporting on Watergate and bringing down the presidency of Republican Richard Nixon, he was a hero. Now that Woodward is using the same truth and principles he did during Watergate against Barack Obama, the LEFT are attacking him. It is so predictable and pathetic. How about a little consistency folks? In all reality, had the liberal, corrupt media complex done their job and actually investigated this president, his anti-Constitution, green-energy payoffs would have made the Watergate scandal pale in comparison to the actions during the Obama administration.

Legendary Journalist Bob Woodward Calls Out Obama For Sequestration … “That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time” (Video)
File this one under the category when someone in the main stream media actually does their job and holds a president accountable no matter what his party affiliation.
Legendary journalist Bob Woodward of “Watergate” fame is calling out President Barack Obama as the deadline for sequestration nears. As the Obama White House uses scare tactics instead of leadership telling Americans that all things will cease to exist, families will suffer, children will go hungry and the sun will not come up tomorrow … Bob Woodward calls out Obama and likens his actions to madness. Woodward blasted President Obama for playing politics with sequestration and putting the United States at national security rick.
It’s one think for Republicans or conservative media to say that Obama is showing a failure to lead, but then one of the journalistic lions like Bob Woodward says it … everyone takes notice and listens.
Transcript from Real Clear Politics:
Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’ Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document? Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country. That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.
It certainly is madness. Yes, just imagine how the liberal MSM would be reporting this story if Reagan or either of the Bush presidents has done the same and put party politics over country?
This is going to leave a mark against Obama. Bob Woodward is a respected journalist and it is going to be fool hearty for Obama and his minion to tarnish Woodward’s image. Although they will certainly try.

US Secretary of State John Kerry Invents New Country of Kyrzakhstan … Imagine How the MSM would Have Reported if He were a Republican?
What a joke … You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, unless you are a Democrat.
The new US Secretary of State John Kerry is off to a rather inauspicious start. In his first trip abroad during a speech he managed to invent a new country … Kyrzakhstan. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State needs a geography lesson. As reported at the Daily Mail, Kerry’s gaffe emerged as he arrived in London for the first leg of an 11-day tour of Europe and the Middle East, making his debut in his new job. Imagine, just imagine how this gaffe would have been reported if Kerry was a Republican. But of course there is no liberal, media double standard. With the bumbling, stumbling stupidity of and anti-Israel nomination of recently Senate approved Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and John “why the long face” Kerry, should we expect anything else from the failed Obama presidency? Dear God help us.
In an embarrassing slip of the tongue, the new US secretary of state praises US diplomats working to secure “democratic institutions” in a Central Asian country, which does not exist.
US Secretary of State John Kerry was referring to the poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, Kyrgyzstan, but he appeared to confuse it with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan.

Economy Surges in America’s Low Tax, Energy Rich, Pro-Business Red State Growth Corridors … Obamanomics Disproved Yet Again
OBAMANOMICS: EPIC FAILURE …
It is no coincidence that “RED” states with energy rich, low taxes and less oppressive government regulation are showing an economic growth in the United States as liberal “blue” states like California and Massachusetts are not. The trends show that the U.S. economic future is dominated by four growth corridors that are generally less dense, more affordable, and markedly more conservative and pro-business: the Great Plains, the Intermountain West, the Third Coast, spanning the Gulf states from Texas to Florida, and the Southeastern industrial belt. When businesses move to these areas for economic reasons, the people will follow. Imagine that, what a novel concept. Areas that are low in taxes, pro-business, energy rich states that are not afraid to unleash capitalism are a success. What do most all of the states have in common, they are “Red” states.
In the wake of the 2012 presidential election, some political commentators have written political obituaries of the “red” or conservative-leaning states, envisioning a brave new world dominated by fashionably blue bastions in the Northeast or California. But political fortunes are notoriously fickle, while economic trends tend to be more enduring.
These trends point to a U.S. economic future dominated by four growth corridors that are generally less dense, more affordable, and markedly more conservative and pro-business: the Great Plains, the Intermountain West, the Third Coast (spanning the Gulf states from Texas to Florida), and the Southeastern industrial belt.
Overall, these corridors account for 45% of the nation’s land mass and 30% of its population. Between 2001 and 2011, job growth in the Great Plains, the Intermountain West and the Third Coast was between 7% and 8%—nearly 10 times the job growth rate for the rest of the country. Only the Southeastern industrial belt tracked close to the national average.
More interesting data pointed out by Instapundit showing the migration of the population away from the high tax states. Their fear though is that will the migration of blue state liberals ruin the places to where they are going to as they have devastated the Northeast and states like California and Illinois. My personal opinion is no. The moochers and leeches will stay put looking for a government hands and entitlements. Those who are tired of the high taxes and liberal oppression are the ones who are looking for greener pastures. Or should I say “red” state pastures.
Since 2000, the Intermountain West’s population has grown by 20%, the Third Coast’s by 14%, the long-depopulating Great Plains by over 14%, and the Southeast by 13%. Population in the rest of the U.S. has grown barely 7%. Last year, the largest net recipients of domestic migrants were Texas and Florida, which between them gained 150,000. The biggest losers? New York, New Jersey, Illinois and California.
White House Report Claims Sequestration Will Affect Federal Department That No Longer Exists … National Drug Intelligence Center Closed Prior to OMB Report
THE SEQUESTRATIO LIE:
Isn’t this typical coming from our over-bloated and insincere federal government … the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget. Sounds terrible doesn’t it? There is just one important fact that they left out .., the department does not exists as it shut its doors in June 2012. How much are you willing to bet that there are many more departments just like this that our less than precise and thorough federal government has missed?
If you want a thorough agency-by-agency rundown of the budget cuts sequestration would deliver, the Office of Management and Budget has you covered. In compliance with The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, the OMB sent a detailed report to Congress in September 2012. But there’s a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns against would affect an agency that no longer exists–and didn’t exist when the OMB sent its report to congress.
The first line item on page 121 of the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget. While that’s slightly more than 8.2 percent (rounding error or scare tactic?), the bigger problem is that the National Drug Intelligence Center shuttered its doors on June 15, 2012–three months before the OMB issued its report to Congress.
As Weasel Zippers remarks, it would seem that Sequestration has mastered time travel. The sad fact is that out bloated and out of control, oversized federal government has got so big that no one knows just how big it is or what is actually going on. Imagine what would happen if an outside consultant came in like Bain Capital to streamline processes?
