“If the Bush tax cuts were only for the wealthy, as the media has been telling us now for years, why, if the tax cuts are allowed to expire, is it going to be disastrous for the middle class? Tax cuts for the wealthy are not going to affect the middle class whether they expire or not. Is it possible that the media has been lying to us all this time and the Bush tax cuts were for the middle class as well as the wealthy? It seems like even the Democrats would have to admit that is the case, if they were honest.”…John Hammer, Rhino Times

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

“There is enough corruption in Illinois so that all it takes is someone who is serious about finding it to uncover it. If a U.S. attorney is not finding corruption in Illinois, they’re not seriously looking for it.”…Northwestern Law Professor James Lindgren

In print in NC.

From John Hammer of the Rhino Times February 28, 2013.

“I can’t believe the level to which President Barack Hussein Obama has sunk with this whole sequester mess. First of all it was his idea. He can blame it on the Republicans all he wants but this was his idea. Even noted liberal writer Bob Woodward has written that it was Obama’s idea.”

“The federal government is on line to spend $3.8 trillion this year. The sequester will limit the federal government to spending $3.715 trillion, so apparently the only thing in that entire budget that can be cut are air traffic controllers, Transportation Security Administration agents at airports, Border Patrol agents, education funding and other services that directly affect people.

The truth is that nobody is really talking about cutting anything. For one thing the federal government doesn’t have a budget. It has not had one since the first year Obama took over as president. There is no budget, so federal agencies just keep growing. All the sequester does is cut back on the rate of growth a little bit.

Why should the federal government grow every year? If all the federal services that were provided in 2012 were provided at exactly the same level by employees being paid exactly the same amount of money would that cause massive problems for the people of the country?

The sequester doesn’t even come close to doing that. It just calls for across-the-board cuts that reach a level of $85 billion. Last year the federal government spent over $2 billion providing cell phones to people who could not afford them. I didn’t know that owning a cell phone was an inalienable right like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but evidently it is important enough for the federal government to spend $2 billion on Obama-phones. Of course, that was an election year. The federal government might not have to spend quite as much on Obama-phones since all those votes have been cast.

Imagine for just a moment if the sequester meant that the Air Force One pilot would be furloughed and the Obamas could not fly anywhere they wanted at any moment. Imagine if just one week a month the Obamas couldn’t fly anywhere because they didn’t have a pilot.

Or what if the sequester caused Obama’s favorite golf course to be closed on Sundays. Or isn’t it possible that with the sequester the White House chef would be laid off?

In fact, it is somewhat amazing that the American people are going to be so inconvenienced by the reduction in anticipated spending that this sequester brings, but the president will not be inconvenienced at all.

Imagine – according to Obama the federal government can’t survive on a mere $3.715 trillion without making drastic cuts to services that many Americans use.

In 2008, the last budget of the George Walker Bush administration total federal spending was $2.9 trillion. Obama has increased spending during his four years by nearly $1 trillion. If the federal government went back to the 2008 budget that would cut almost $1 trillion from the current spending pattern (as noted, there is no budget). But were things really so bad in 2008? I remember flying in 2008 and there were no long delays because of a lack of air traffic controllers. The national parks were open, and children were being educated. So four years ago Bush was able to run the country on $1 trillion less, but in 2013 Obama can’t run the country on $85 billion less?

If Obama wanted to he could cut $85 billion from projected federal spending and no one would notice except for the overpaid, underworked administrators who would be laid off. The federal workforce is a huge pork barrel. You have employees who work really hard and do an outstanding job, and you have entire departments who do nothing useful. Obama doesn’t want to eliminate the entire departments who do nothing useful because that would be evidence that the federal government doesn’t need to raise taxes. He is going to do everything in his power to make the reductions in projected spending as painful as possible.

One report said that although Air Force One will not be touched by the reduction in the rate of growth that the Air Force might stop providing planes for congressional junkets.

It is extremely hard to write about the sequester without writing about cuts, but in reality there are no cuts. Imagine a child who really wants a pony for Christmas and begs and pleads for a pony for months. Christmas morning comes and there is no pony. Now can that child say that she lost a pony? Can she say that she had a pony and it was taken away from her? Not according to most people. But if a federal department is expecting an increase and that increase is reduced that is considered a cut.

Only in government can someone get 10 percent more than the previous year and call it a cut in spending.”

“Most people in the country don’t read Under the Hammer, and far too many simply take what is presented in the mainstream media as fact. It is a sad day for journalism but, just like ABC editing Michelle Obama’s comments, the reporting on the Obama administration is as much fantasy as fact.

Even Bob Woodward felt the need to step up and remind primarily reporters that Obama was the one who came up with sequester idea and supported it.”

“Jackson was co-chairman of the Obama presidential campaign in 2008, but if you are reading articles about Jackson going to prison you don’t often see that job mentioned or any reference to what a close relationship Jackson and Obama had at one time.

Jackson’s sister and Michelle Obama were good friends when they were growing up. Jesse Jackson Sr. has said Michelle was over at his house all the time as a teenager.

Does Barack Obama have any friends left in Chicago who aren’t in prison? Obama’s close friend Tony Rezko, who was kind enough to help Obama buy his house in Chicago, is in jail for fraud. Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is also in prison. Obama claimed credit for getting Blagojevich elected governor. He used to say that he ran the campaign. However, now Blagojevich is just some guy from Chicago that Obama may have bumped into a few times.

Really, you look at Obama’s friends and you have to wonder what kind of man we have elected as president. One of his best buddies is Bill Ayers, who is an unrepentant domestic terrorist. Ayers participated in bombings in that killed people and got off on a technicality. Back when Ayers was running from the law, I’m sure he had no idea that one day he’d be a good friend with the president of the United States.

Consider also that Obama’s brother, George Obama, lives in abject poverty in Kenya. George Obama lives in a hovel made of old pieces of metal and cardboard. In an interview he said he lived on $1 a month. His brother is the most powerful man in the world and privately worth millions of dollars, yet Barack Obama won’t send his brother George $10 a year to double his income. It’s frightening to think of what kind of man is running the country.”
