Fareed Zakaria: Time for Democrats to Face Facts on Public Pension Reform

Fareed Zakaria: Time for Democrats to Face Facts on Public Pension Reform: Writing for Time magazine, Fareed Zakaria has made a solid argument for public sector pension reform. He makes no bones about who is at fault in what he labels "the single biggest threat to the U.S.'s fiscal health."

Obama Prevents Student Loan Rate Reduction

Obama Prevents Student Loan Rate Reduction

11 days ago 3 post a comment

Remember when President Obama was touring around the country, “not” campaigning on the issue of student loan rate maintenance? As it turns out, he’s been stalling any true attempt to keep student loan rates stable.



This morning, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took to the floor to denounce Obama’s politicking on the issue:


I have in my hand a letter that’s been signed by the top two Republicans in the House, and the top two Republicans in the Senate. It lists no fewer than four good-faith bipartisan proposals to resolve this issue, drawing on ideas the President’s already shown a willingness to support. We sent this letter to the President five days ago.


Yet now we learn that the Vice President plans to have a group of college presidents over to the White House today to ‘reassert the call for Congress to stop the student loan interest rate from doubling.’

Well, let me make a suggestion. Why doesn’t the Vice President just pick up the phone, choose one of the proposals we laid out in our letter, and then announce at this meeting that the problem’s been solved.


The answer is obvious: Obama doesn’t want the problem solved. He wants a political football with which he can play. The White House website features a call for Congressional action. As an unpopular incumbent, Obama’s only option is to run against Congress – and that means that he has to prevent Congress from doing anything, so he can complain that they don’t do anything.

Did MA Really Rank 47th in Jobs? Maybe... Maybe Not.

Did MA Really Rank 47th in Jobs? Maybe... Maybe Not.: Something that you will hear again and again in 2012 from Romney-bashers is the tired old refrain that, “as Governor of Massachusetts, Governor Mitt Romney ranked 47th in overall job growth!” Sounds like a pretty powerful indictment of Romney’s four years as Governor, especially since he is currently campaigning on a jobs platform, doesn’t it?


There’s a fatal flaw behind this allegation, however. The problem is, it’s a classic example of misdirection. In politics, the general rule of thumb is this: If your opponent has positives in his record, the best thing to do is point the public at something else – something that doesn’t look near as good.


Did the state of Massachusetts really rank 47th out of the 50 U.S. states in job growth under the governorship of Mitt Romney? The answer depends entirely on how you ask the question, and what it is you’re trying to show with the numbers. Let’s look at how statistics like this one can be used to paint an erroneous picture.

Illegal immigrants hail policy shift, but caution tempers their joy - latimes.com: President Obama's announcement that deportations of those who came to the U.S. as children would end raises hopes, but some see it as an election-year ploy.

Illegal immigrants hail policy shift, but caution tempers their joy - latimes.com: While many cheered the Obama administration's announcement Friday that a class of young illegal immigrants would be allowed to stay and apply for work permits, some saw it as the political gamesmanship of a president fighting for a second term. And some said it felt too soon to let down their guard.


Salgado pointed to the White House announcement last year that it would use prosecutorial discretion to grant relief to some illegal immigrants. Yet "every day on my Facebook wall I was looking at all these deportations that were happening," Salgado said.


"We don't want to be used like little political game pieces just to get a vote," he said.

In Univision Clip from 2011, President Obama Admits That Selective Enforcement of Immigration Laws Is Illegal | Video | TheBlaze.com

In Univision Clip from 2011, President Obama Admits That Selective Enforcement of Immigration Laws Is Illegal | Video | TheBlaze.com: It‘s very rare that you see President Obama admit wrongdoing after he’s done something. Unfortunately, it’s much more common for him to say something is a bad idea and then do it. Listing the number of instances would take too long, but it‘s safe to say it’s a common trend.


And now there’s just one more example. In the following clip, taken from a 2011 Univision Town Hall, President Obama admits that it’s beyond his power to suspend deportations for anyone because (surprise, surprise) there are laws on the books that he’d be breaking by doing that. In other words, the President acknowledges that to do what he did today would be a rank violation of the separation of powers

Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Governor Jon Brewer Share Their Concerns Over President Obama’s Immigration Policy on Mike Broomhead Show | Video | TheBlaze.com

Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Governor Jon Brewer Share Their Concerns Over President Obama’s Immigration Policy on Mike Broomhead Show | Video | TheBlaze.com
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio joined Arizona talk show host Mike Broomhead today in two separate segments to discuss the President’s decision to selectively enforce immigration law – a decision which Brewer said “has the status of law” even though it actively contradicts the law.
You can hear Brewer’s segment below, where she explains that this decision is likely a “pre-emptive strike” in anticipation of a likely Supreme Court decision in favor of the constitutionality of SB 1070:
Arpaio, however, was far less concerned about the decision, saying the timing had taken him by surprise, but not the substance of the move. He also said that the rules change wouldn’t affect how he enforced the law, and that he planned to keep right on going arresting illegals under state law. He did echo Brewer’s concerns that the new policy would spawn a run for the border, now that there is an incentive for young illegals to enter the United States.
“We‘re still gonna lock ’em up if we have ‘em on another crime,” Arpaio said.
Listen to Arpaio’s segment below:

Ann Coulter - June 13, 2012 - OBAMA'S PUBLIC SECTOR FULL EMPLOYMENT PLAN: When Democrats say the public sector is suffering, they mean public sector employees have half the unemployment rate of the rest of the country -- 4.2 percent compared to 8.2 percent.


Obama's monumentally idiotic statement has led his media defenders to recycle Mitt Romney's alleged "gaffe" from several months ago, when he said: "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."

He did not help matters by becoming lachrymose over the suffering of public sector employees: "Where we're seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. ... And so, if Republicans want to be helpful, if they really want to move forward and put people back to work, what they should be thinking about is, how do we help state and local governments ..."

Obama Doubles Down on Misleading Economic Statistics to Distort Romney Record - Kevin Glass

Obama Doubles Down on Misleading Economic Statistics to Distort Romney Record - Kevin Glass: The ad states that job creation in Massachusetts “fell” to 47th under Romney. That’s a bit misleading. Massachusetts’ state ranking for job growth went from 50th the year before he took office, to 28th in his final year. It was 47th for the whole of his four-year tenure, but it was improving, not declining, when he left.


The ad claims Romney “left the state $2.6 billion deeper in debt.” It’s true that long-term bond debt — used for capital improvements — rose under Romney, as it had in the years before he took office. But Romney wasn’t piling up yearly deficits to support operating expenses the way the federal government is, because Massachusetts requires balanced budgets.

Ayn Rand, Anti-Communism, & the Left

Ayn Rand, Anti-Communism, & the Left

The victory of Barack Obama in 2008, with the Democrats seizing strong majorities in Congress, led to a fairly open program to begin building socialism in the United States. Indeed, Newsweek magazine announced on its cover, "We are all socialists now." Yet Democrats still officially act insulted or puzzled if they are asked about socialism. Privately, thanks to cellphones, we often hear other talk -- which only goes to confirm the accusation of conservatives that Democrats cannot honestly admit what they have believed and planned to do. 

They did enough, however, to go down to stunning defeat and lose the House of Representatives in 2010. In the Senate, with few Democrat seats vulnerable in this cycle, they lost some numbers but kept a majority -- although the defeat of long time leftist icons like Russ Feingold of Wisconsin was all but unbelievable. If the Republicans maintain any kind of discipline in the House, the socialist joy ride is over. 

Since the Republicans had discredited themselves by 2006 with overspending and corruption (i.e. pork barrel "earmarks"), giving rise to the "Tea Party" movement in response, they have a real challenge to avoid their previous failures and keep faith with a newly aroused electorate. The best that the Republicans can say in retrospect is that they weren't as bad as what the Democrats subsequently showed themselves to be. But since what the core of the Tea Party really wants -- the Restoration of Constitutional Government -- is a truly radical purpose that is congenial to only a few, if any, Establishment Republicans -- it would, after all, undo the New Deal, with which Einsenhower Republicans made their peace long ago -- the political future of the country promises, to say the least, to be interesting.

Ayn Rand, Anti-Communism, & the Left

Ayn Rand, Anti-Communism, & the Left

The Left endured a stunning defeat with the Presidential election of 2004. It was not for want of trying. Hollywood went all out, from the summer blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow, with environmentalist doomsaying and caricatures of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, to Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911, the greatest political "documentary" since Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will (1935). While the likes of Moore, and money man George Soros, attacked George Bush and the war in Iraq, it was evident what their real targets were:  free trade, globalization, and Capitalism itself. To Moore, Capitalism is a "diabolical" system, and he happily quotes Lenin. He had already done his bit for the police state with his deceptive and mendacious anti-gun "documentary" Bowling for Columbine. Moore is a thoroughly disgraceful person, but he was warmly embraced and displayed by the Democratic establishment -- who had been a lot harder on Hugh Hefner back in 2000. The Press also went all out. Although John Kerry never authorized the release of his military service records, and George Bush did, it was Bush who kept being attacked over his Air National Guard service (after years of their defending Bill Clinton for no service at all). This reached its height with the use of forged documents by CBS News to try and show that Bush had disobeyed orders. Although the forgery was exposed within hours (from an era when documents were typewritten, the documents curiously were products of Microsoft Word), CBS took days to admit that there was a problem, and even then continued, with no evidence, to claim that the story was nevertheless true. But we already know about Dan Rather. Anger at the Press turned out to be a factor in the turnout for Bush. In the postmortem of Leftist commentators, all they could do was bewail the stupidity of American voters in continuing to vote for Capitalism, not to mention smearing voters as bigoted Christians because gay marriage was rejected in eleven States (even in a State, like Oregon, that went for Kerry). That this was simply an affirmation of traditional morality offended everyone for whom "morality" means no more than socialist political activism.

A 'Fine' Mess. Even Obama Loyalist Winces at Obama's Take on Private Sector - 2012 Decoded

A 'Fine' Mess. Even Obama Loyalist Winces at Obama's Take on Private Sector - 2012 Decoded: When Jared Bernstein, Vice President Biden's former top economist, began reviewing notes of President Obama's press conference on Friday, he stopped cold when he read "the private sector is doing fine."


"It caught my eye," Bernstein told National Journal. Bernstein immediately fired off an email to the intern who took the notes to make sure it was accurate and not a rough or garbled translation. "I thought, 'Did he really say that?'"


To his dismay, the intern wrote back that those were Obama's words. Verbatim.


"I think he misspoke," Bernstein said.


Asked would he have winced if he'd still been in the White House, Bernstein said: "I winced having not been in there."
