Easter Sunday, a Day of Rest … Not For Democrat as Obama, Pelosi, McAuliffe Issue Easter Sunday Fundraising Appeals
What ever happened to separation of Church and State?
The Democrats just have no shame and no understanding that there needs to be a day of rest from their political begging for money. Sunday, a day of rest from the political beg for money? Nope, not for Democrats. Then again, they believe that Democrat party politics is a religion. As reported at the Washington Times, at least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday. They went so far as to have the DCCC send out an updated fundraising email from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter … “We could really do this! If we can hit 200,000 donations before tonight’s FEC deadline, it would send a blistering message to Speaker Boehner and the Republicans. Donate $3 before MIDNIGHT and your gift will be triple-matched.” Good grief, give it a rest. What would Jesus say?
Easter Sunday is not a day of rest for the Democrats’ moneychangers. At least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday in their bid to reach loyal Democrats in between church and Easter dinner.
It’s just the latest sign that politics and fundraising have become as regular as shopping at Sears or Walmart, which also open on Easter.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Sunday morning sent out an updated fundraising note from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) says Democrats are “in the red” and are broke. That’s ok Debbie, thanks to Barack Obama and Democrats, so is America.
What would Jesus say, certainly not these shameful, divisive comments …
President Barack Obama and the First family attended Easter service at St. John’s Episcopal Church in DC. ABC News reports that the sermon turned slightly political when Leon said there are some members of the religious right who are trying to pull people back rather than letting them move forward. SLIGHTLY POLITCAL? A pastor plays the race card and that is only slightly political for of all things an Easter service sermon?. One can imagine what is overly political. However, what a better religious-political message with Obama, the “Divider” in Chief in attendance.
The captains of the religious right are always calling us back, back, back. For blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet and for immigrants to be on their side of the border,” Leon said. “What you and I understand is that when Jesus says you can’t hang onto me, he says you know it’s not about the past, it’s not about the before, it’s not about the way things were but about the way things can be in the now.”
Hmm, some words seem to be missing, but what else would one expect from the liberal MSM who thinks playing the race card. More from the Right Scoop as to what Barack Obama and his family listened to as they sat in the pews on Easter Sunday. How very sad that this be the message of hope, resurrection and rebirth in an Easter service.
As Jesus told Mary not to hold on to the past, “You cannot go back.”
“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus … for women to be back in the kitchen … for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”
“The message of Easter is about the power of love over loveless power.”
Of course Barack Obama just sat attentively in his Sunday best listening to this divisive bullsh*t and thought nothing of it. But what else would we expect from a man who attended the church of Reverend Wright for 20 years and his racist, anti-American rants and thought nothing of that ether.
A note to this misguided pastor and to all else who want to blame others for their plight in life or just wish to blame others just to cause division, take a real good look who is holding you back, put you back on the plantation or at the back of the bus. Who is making you dependent on the government rather than those who want you to be all that you can be? Who is calling for blacks to go to the back of the bus or that woman have to be in the kitchen? Seriously, who? As for immigrants to stay on their side of the border, I think many are calling for the laws of the United States to be enforced and “ILLEGALS” to be dealt with accordingly. I wonder what Jesus would say when the Church becomes a propaganda tool of a the government?
AFTER 4 YEARS SENATE DEMOCRATS PASS A BUDGET WITH $1 TRILLION IN TAX HIKES …
For the first time in four years the Democrat controlled US Senate has passed a budget. From the looks of it they shouldn’t have bothered. The budget plan was passed by a 50-49 vote in the Democratic-controlled chamber, with 4 Democratic senators facing tough re-election campaigns in 2014 joined all the Senate Republicans in opposing the measure. Max Baucus (D-MT), Mark Begich (D-AK), Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Mark Pryor (D-AR) all voted against the Democrat budget. It is just a coincidence that all four Democrats are up for reelection in 2014 “Red” states. Vulnerable Senate Democrats like Mary Landrieu (LA), Mark Warner (VA) and Tim Johnson (SD) should be made to pay a price in the 2014 elections for supporting the budget. Simply incredible, after four years of not doing their job, the budget that Democrats pass is chock full of new spending, taxes and a vote against actually balancing it. Oh wait, did we mention it just taxes, taxes and taxes?
From The Hill:
Centrist Sens. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Max Baucus (D-Mont.) were all non-committal up until the end.
Baucus, Begich, Hagan and Pryor joined the entire GOP caucus in voting against the budget resolution. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), who was ill, missed the vote. His office said he would have been available to vote if needed.
All the Democratic senators who voted “no” are up for reelection in 2014 in states that voted for GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.
No wonder Senate Democrats had not passed a previous budget prior to Obama’s reelection. The Senate budget has a 0% chance of passing The House.
Democrats, Lost in Smallness …
Via the Washington Times, Democrat controlled Senate votes to keep the White House tours closed. So much for the White House being the “People’s” House. It must just be for the Democrat privileged elites and lobbyists. And of course the special, beautiful people who will attend Michelle Obama’s birthday. Because why should we let the St. Paul’s 6th graders from Waverly, Iowa tour the White House. How petty is this president and Democrats to try and score political points at the expense of children and “We the People”. The smallness of Barack Obama is without bounds.
Senators voted Wednesday to make the first significant changes to the budget sequesters, shifting money to keep slaughterhouse inspectors on the job full time but refusing to rearrange money to reopen the White House for public tours.
The votes came as the Senate debated and passed a bill to fund the government through the rest of the fiscal year — sending it back to the House for final expected approval later this week and averting a government shutdown.
In the end, it’s never about “We the People”.
Barack Obama Says: “There Is No Debt Crisis” … “We Don’t Have an Immediate Crisis” Actually We Have a $16.6 Trillion Debt
The United States has a $16.6 trillion debt and counting and Barack Obama thinks we do not have a debt crisis …
How out of touch and dangerous is President Barack Obama for America? During an interview with ABC News Obama acted said that there was no debt crisis. Obama’s exact comment was, “we don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. In fact, for the next 10 years, it’s going to be in a sustainable place.” Really Mr. President … the present national debt is $16.6 trillion and counting by the second. The US is well on their way to being Greece under this president and Obama sits back and spends more. If this is how Obama actually thinks, how on earth could there ever be any real deal between the GOP and Democrats on real reduction of spending, entitlement programs and social security? The Obama comment is just so absolutely insane and in such direct polar opposite to the GOP that in my opinion the Republicans should never concede or meet in the middle on the issue. This is the wrong president to make any real tax reform, social security reform or entitlement reform with. Obama just is not serious.
Watch the above ABC News interview and the completely out of touch president Obama … He has no intention of balancing budget & blames the Secret Service for ending WH tours
We had already previously reported that during the interview that Barack Obama had no intention of balancing the budget. America, that is code for spend, spend, spend.
As Real Clear Politics stated, In Reality, Debt Matters. It Matters a Lot.
That’s a pretty convenient position, wouldn’t you say, for a man who’s helped pile on trillions of dollars of new debt and created an entitlement that promises to escalate this non-crisis crisis of ours? Problem is that there are a few trillion things wrong with this contention.
Right now, we’re spending more money to pay interest on debt than we’ll spend on education, homeland security, transportation and veterans’ benefits combined this year. Surely, there’s something better to spend that money on. And those interest payments are a significant tax on Americans — a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. And just wait until interest rates rise, because at some point they will.
UPDATE I: Obama meets with House Republicans with the charm offensive, make that the “smarm” offensive and downplays ‘immediate’ debt crisis.
His statement would be sharply at odds with a core Republican principle that the debt must be addressed soon — and which underpinned the cost-cutting GOP budget released Tuesday. The president also acknowledged, in an interview aired earlier in the day, that differences with the GOP might be “too wide” to bridge.
Still, the president made the rare visit with House Republicans on Capitol Hill as part of what some are calling his charm offensive. The president is making a renewed effort to meet with Republican leaders and rank-and-file lawmakers amid overlapping budget battles and a series of deadlines on the horizon.
The Waters who Cried 170 Million Wolves … Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) Claims, “Over 170 Million Jobs Could Be Lost” Due To Sequestration
The Democrat sequestration insanity continues …
It’s the end of times America, welcome to the exaggeration of Obama and Democrats with sequestration. Forget the Mayan end of the world predictions, we have the ridiculous comments of California Democrat US Rep. Maxine Waters. She stated in the latest Democrat “Chicken Little”, the sky is falling that sequester cuts mean “over 170 million jobs could be lost.” Maybe Rep. Waters should have had Dr. Evil deliver the statement?
Representative Waters, if you are going to cry wolf, at least get your numbers right so you don’t look like a complete, lying fool, only a complete fool. But as the Ace of Spades says, “Math iz hard.”
Yesterday we did have Mr. Bernanke in our committee and he came to tell us what he’s doing with quantitative easing and that is trying to stimulate the economy with the bond purchases that he’s been doing because he’s trying to keep the interest rates low and jobs – and he said that if sequestration takes place, that’s going to be a great setback. We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost.
170 MILLION? What an idiot. As stated over at Michelle Malkin.com, “There are around 150 million people employed in the United States at the moment. According to Rep. Maxine Waters, the sequester will have such a devastating impact that all of those people will lose their jobs, and 20 million of them will lose their jobs twice.” Or maybe she is counting 20 million illegals working in the US? But one has to wonder why Democrats like Maxine Waters are so worried about all these jobs lost, isn’t it Democrats and her fellow US Rep. from California Nancy Pelosi who think that unemployment is a boost to the economy?
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.
DEMOCRAT & MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARD … Oops, Looks like Obama Treasury Secretary Nominee Jack Lew was Sheltering his Money in the Cayman Islands … But It’s Not Romney So That’s OK
Imagine that, only sheltering monies in the Cayman Islands is an issue for Democrats and the MSM when it comes to Republicans and Mitt Romney. Where is that class warfare rhetoric from Obama now?
Don’t look now but President Barack Obama’s Treasury Secretary nominee Jack Lew’s nomination may have hit a bit of a snag. It would appear that he has made investments in the Cayman Island to shelter money. Of course this is not an issue now for the Obama White House, Democrats and the liberal MSM. It was only an issue for former 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Of course it will make no difference to Obama, he is the one who previously had Turbo tax cheat Timothy Geitner of the Treasury Secretary. What’s a little Cayman Island sheltered money?
Republicans have been critical of Lew since his nomination was announced last month. Sens. Jeff Sessions and Orrin Hatch have questioned his role in Medicare policy decisions and his role at Citigroup.
“He’s got to still answer some questions or we may have to postpone the hearing,” Hatch told POLITICO on Thursday. “Right now, I’ve agreed to the hearing date but it is subject to having answers to the questions that were raised. They aren’t difficult to answer, they can answer them.”
Sources said Republicans have not given any indication that they plan to use the information to stall the upcoming hearing or to block the nomination completely.
Committee members will have the chance to question Lew directly at the hearing next week.
“[They] have every right to bring these issues up, that is why we have the committee hearing,” Neary said. “No one is being stopped from asking any questions at these hearings.”
But of course there is no double standard here. Barack Obama was highly critical of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for similar investments in funds based in the Cayman Islands, but now has the nerve to nominate an individual who has done the same. How hypocritical could Obama be? Obama obsessed over offshore tax shelters, but nominated someone who has done the very same that Obama claims to be against. What a joke. The Obama White House actually had the nerve to defend Lew and his investment by stating that Lew paid all his taxes on all of his income. As an American Thinker states, the point is not that Lew disclosed or paid taxes on his income, the issue at hand is the idea that it is evil to have an offshore account – at least it was for Mitt Romney. The specter of an offshore account raise the issue of hidden income and avoidance of taxes. That was the story when Obama slandered Romney, but some hoe it a different story when it comes to Jack Lew.
“President Obama has been almost obsessively critical of offshore investments. He called Ugland House ‘either the biggest building or the biggest tax scam on record,’” Grassley wrote in a statement late Friday.
“For years, we’ve talked about shutting down overseas tax havens that let companies set up operations to avoid paying taxes in America,” Obama said. He said his budget proposal would crack down on businesses which incorporate in places such as Ugland House.
Grassley said of the contrast between Obama’s statements and Lew’s past investment, “The irony is thick.
President Obama Scolds FOX News for Not Giving Him A Media Pass Like the Rest of the MSM … Trying to Silence Those Who Dare Question Him
THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT WHO THINKS ALL MUST AGREE WITH HIM OR ELSE …
America, want to know why “We the People” have a First Amendment and there is “Freedom of the Press”? Our Founding Fathers provided us with these liberties to prevent exactly what Barack Obama is attempting to do in bullying the media not to question his policies and agenda. Greta Van Susteren references this very notion as she stated, ”apparently President Obama wants his usual media pass and Fox challenges his policies – which happens to be the media’s job.” Believe it or not America, it is American to question your leaders.
The ultimate bully
This was in response to President Barack Obama’s interview with The New Republic where he called out FOX News and Rush Limbaugh for being the problem with the dysfunction in Washington, DC and the gridlock due to GOP obstruction. Obama claimed that it if FOX News would not punish and bully Republicans when they do compromise, that things would be different. Does some one need to inform Obama that it is the media’s role to always question our government, not agree with them? But for Obama, the Imperial president, who seems more comfortable acting as a dictator than he does working under the confines of the US Constitution and our Republic.
President Obama in response to a question about working with Republicans: “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it. I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.
The same dynamic happens on the Democratic side. I think the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word. And I think at least leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.
Greta Van Susteren went on to call out Obama and Democrats for the bullies that they really are. Which plays into the age old adage that we have known all along that if you are accusing some one else of doing something, you yourself are probably the guilty one. Who does not believe that Democrat leadership pressure and intimidate their members not to go on Fox News and if they do are provided pro-Obama talking points?
And do you know what else? Brace yourself for this one! Some Democrats have told me that they want to come on Fox to discuss issues but they get heat from their Leadership for appearing on Fox. Does President Obama know that? So which Party is intimidating its members? And to say Senator Harry Reid is willing to compromise is just wrong. He has not allowed a budget to get to the Senate Floor for years to even begin a discussion. The budget process is where all compromise begins and ends and ended it before it even got started.
This is not the first time that Obama has done this. From the outset that have tried to marginalize and prevent Fox News from having the same access as the rest of the complicit, corrupt media complex. Otherwise known as the Obama propaganda machine.
He Said He Would Reach Across the Aisle … Barack Obama, the Most Polarizing President Ever During First Term as President
BARACK OBAMA, THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF … According to Gallup, Barack Obama is the most polarizing President ever during their first term in office.
In the end it was not even close. Barack Obama was the most polarizing president in the history of Gallup polling for a president during their first term in office. Obama finished his 4 years in office with a 70 point partisan average gap, the next closest was George W. Bush at 61. Barack Obama finished his fourth year as president, tied with GWB at 76. Gallup tries to explain Obama’s record polarization by saying it is just the era we live in. What they won’t tell you is that the reason for the polarization is at record levels is because Barack Obama is trying to fundamentally change the United States into a Western European socialist country. That is why so many who appose him have such a negative view of his policies. Obama once said that he would reach across the aisle and that there were no red or blue states, only the United States. What a fraud perpetrated on the American people.
Obama on Pace to Be Most Polarizing President Yet
The average party gap in ratings of President Obama during the four years of his presidency is 70 percentage points. If that average holds, it would surpass Bush’s record 61-point average polarization during his eight-year presidency by a considerable margin. Bush also finished his presidency with a significantly larger party gap in job approval ratings than the previous leader, Bill Clinton (55 points).
Hey America, how’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you?
