The Howling

Another reason Democrats make me sick. They take a tragedy and try to spin it for their own political gain.

DC Mayor Blames Sequester For Navy Yard Deaths

In case you haven't heard...

The recent Colorado flood was also cause by sequestration. 

Remember as you read this it was Bill Clinton who outlawed military bases from carrying arms. 

The military? 



Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray says sequestration budget cuts might have played a role in Monday's shootings at the Navy Yard.

"We're continuing this investigation," he told CNN Tuesday. "But certainly, as I look at, for example, sequestration, which is about saving money in the federal government being spent, that we somehow skimped on what would be available for projects like this, and then we put people at risk. Obviously, 12 people have paid the ultimate price for whatever—you know, whatever was done to have this man on the base."

It was perhaps inevitable that Democrats would invoke the sequester at some point. It's what they have done repeatedly since the across-the-board federal budget cuts began in March. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell has cited sequester cuts in discussing wildfires out West. House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer blamed them after the Boston Marathon bombings. The liberal media is playing along, of course. A recent National Public Radio segment said that the sequester has led to an uptick in suicides on Indian reservations.

Opponents of the sequester would have you believe that the government operates at peak efficiency—that there's no fat to trim and so any reduction in spending threatens some critical program or service. The reality, as GOP Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has pointed out, is that there is plenty of government waste out there that's being funded by taxpayers. The other reality is that without the sequester cuts, government spending would not be trending downward. "Mr. Obama has inadvertently chained himself to fiscal restraints that could flatten federal spending for the rest of his presidency," my Wall Street Journal colleague Stephen Moore wrote recently.

The political left doesn't want to check outlays or even prioritized them because they believe that government spending per se is a social and economic good. Their problem with the sequester is not that they think it's causing wildfires and mass shootings, though they are happy to exploit such events.


Fugitive Snowden in running for European rights prize

Why not? 

Hillary got a medal for getting 4 people killed in Benghazi.


Fugitive US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden is in the running for a European human rights prize whose past winners include Nelson Mandela and Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Snowden, who is in hiding in Russia, is one of seven nominations made by members of the European Parliament for the Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, a move likely to upset Washington which wants to try him on espionage charges.
Snowden was nominated by the Greens in the European Parliament who said he had done an "enormous service" for human rights and European citizens by disclosing secret US Internet and telephone surveillance programs.

"Edward Snowden has risked his freedom to help us protect ours and he deserves to be honoured for shedding light on the systematic infringements of civil liberties by U.S. and European secret services," Rebecca Harms and Dany Cohn-Bendit, the leaders of the left-leaning Greens, said in a statement.
Revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency monitors vast quantities of email and telephone data of both Americans and foreigners, and a report that Washington spied on the European Union has caused outrage in European capitals.

The other nominees include Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban last year for demanding education for girls, and Russian former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a critic of President Vladimir Putin who has been convicted of money-laundering, tax evasion and fraud.
The European Parliament's committees vote on a shortlist of three finalists on September 30. The winner will be chosen by parliamentary leaders on October 10.

Emails show IRS’ Lois Lerner specifically targeted tea party

"I have done nothing wrong"

Has turned into...I have done nothing right!

The new revelations:

- In February 2011, Lerner warned that the "Tea Party matter" could be "the vehicle" for a campaign finance law challenge, and shouldn't be left to the Cincinatti IRS office.

So much for "low level rogue employees in Cincinnati" 

- On July 10, 2012, after aide Sharon Light sent Lerner an article about Democrats wanting more disclosure of donors from the FEC -- worried that conservatives were making better use of 501 laws to hide money -- Lerner responded, "perhaps the FEC will save the day."

What is their involvement?

- 15 days later, Lerner pre-spun some negative attention coming around to the delays of tax-exempt applications.

I submit to you Barry knew all about the IRS scandal because in all likelihood he orchestrated it. In the multitude of scandals since Barry took office no one has been fired, let alone put in jail, because in this administration there is no punitive action for the crime of loyalty to their Ruler. 


Hillary Clinton heckled on Benghazi during award ceremony

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fielded hecklers who hounded her on Benghazi at the tail end of an award acceptance speech she delivered at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on Tuesday evening.“When we fail to make progress on the challenges facing our people at home, our standing in the world suffers,” she said, reported.

Mrs. Clinton was accepting the 2013 Liberty Medal, an honor to recognize her career in public service and advocacy for women’s rights, CBS reported. She told the crowd of hundreds of the U.S. need to balance national security with human rights issues in Syria, and called for American politicians to cross party aisles and strike a chord of unity.

The mostly bland speech received an energy boost at the tail end, when a protester in the midst of the crowd starting chanting: “Benghanzi! Benghazi! Benghazi!”

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Mrs. Clinton did not mention the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, during her remarks. The attacks took place a year ago today — Sept. 11, 2012 — and left four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, dead.

This whole affair is a fascade. The timing incredible!

The administration, including then-Secretary of State Clinton, vowed to investigate and bring to justice the guilty parties, but the issue has since fallen to the wayside.
