We now know President Obama is ordering federal departments to make sure as many Americans as possible suffer from sequester, his 2.3% cuts in spending.
The Department of Agriculture memo ordering a manager who asked if he could move money around to make sure inspections to prevent the introduction of foreign pests and diseases into U.S. agriculture would continue was told in writing, “… however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
President Obama warned you the impact of his sequester would be great calamities. No middle manager shall succeed in avoiding disaster!
This memo was leaked after political appointee Janet Napolitano flailed about on cable news programs declaring long lines at airports due to sequester. Reporters then called officials at each of the airports she mentioned only to hear there were no long lines and no delays. Apparently, she forgot to send a memo. Then came the story that, days before she dutifully announced TSA furloughs, she had ordered $50 million worth of new TSA uniforms.
Apparently, the cash crunch isn’t all they say it is.
Pathetically, President Obama then chose to use 6th Graders at the St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly, Iowa to compel Republicans to raise taxes by refusing the children their scheduled White House tour, saying, gosh, golly gee, we’d love for you to visit the White House, but we just can’t afford to pay the Secret Service their $30 an hour to protect us from dangerous 12 year-old Iowa Lutherans. Those darn Republicans!
Sadly, every cut you now read about is most likely a partisan political choice by President Obama who has the authority and flexibility to make reductions less painful.
On the more serious side of the President’s sequester silliness is:
Secretary of State John Kerry announcing his function in the office: Hand out millions of dollars to radical regimes while his boss blames everyone else for being short on funds to pay teachers.
Impressed with the Islamic spring that put the Muslim Brotherhood in power, President Obama promised Egypt $1 billion dollars to support the revolution. In keeping with the foreign policy that “reset” Russians to arm Syria and reportedly included gun running through the U.S. “mission” in Benghazi, Kerry is now Obama’s bagman to President Mohammed Morsi. The initial $250 million rewards Morsi for keeping an appointment with the International Monetary Fund to discuss possible Egyptian economic reforms. This equivalent of 7,352 TSA screeners’ annual salaries is for Morsi’s promise that he really, really, really will reach an agreement with the IMF in a year.
It’s currently important policy to lay off U.S. school teachers and give millions of dollars to tyrants like Morsi who explained his anti-Semitic and anti-American televised rant that Israelis were “the descendants of apes and pigs” was actually distorted by the American media, which “is controlled by certain forces and they don’t view me favorably,” meaning Jews.
To further clear this up and justify a billion dollars to Egyptians who express their friendship to us by teaching their children to hate us, Fathi Shihab-Eddim, Morsi’s confidant responsible for appointing the editors of all state-run Egyptian newspapers, reports there was never a Holocaust, adding “that the 6 million Jews all really moved to the United States during the war (and oddly no one noticed) and that the number of Jews killed in the war was about the number who died in traffic accidents,” as cited by Daniel Greenfield in Frontpage Magazine.
Glad you cleared that up.
It’s Obama who says he has to take money from Head Start to make sure a billion dollars goes to Morsi, who said in 2010, “…we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue.”
Yes, Morsi was talking about you, America.
And Morsi thanks us for the 20 F-16 fighter jets, too, since President Obama apparently can’t think of any federal employees who would benefit from the actual 213 million dollars a real sale would bring.
When people ask, “Who’s winning the sequester debate,” maybe we should answer, “Egypt.”
