It’s Come To This – After White House Drums Faux-Panic Over Sequestration; DHS Joins Propaganda – Now Both Panicked From Outcome/Optic…..

Will somebody, anybody, please put the grown-ups back in charge of this country !

NapolitanoshotgunEarlier in the week - The federal government released groups of illegal immigrants from custody across the country Monday at the same time the White House was making its case that impending budget cuts would harm efforts to protect the border and enforce federal immigration laws.

Advocates reported “waves” of illegal immigrants being released from at least three detention centers in Texas, Florida and Louisiana.

U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement confirmed the release of some illegal immigrants Monday night but would not say how many or from which detention centers.

“In order to make the best use of our limited detention resources in the current fiscal climate and to manage our detention population under current congressionally mandated levels, ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen. “As a result of this review, a number of detained aliens have been released around the country and placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release.” (link)

Sensing the obvious stupidity of the move the White House Responds Today

Jay-Carney2-550x394WASHINGTON DC - The White House and the Department of Homeland Security were unaware of Immigration Customs and Enforcement’s decision to release detainees until the agency announced it, administration officials said Wednesday.

“This was a decision made by career officials at ICE without any input from the White House, as a result of fiscal uncertainty over the continuing resolution, as well as possible sequestration,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.

Personnel at Department of Homeland Security headquarters in Washington were also unaware of the decision until the announcement was made, a department official told POLITICO. (continue reading)

    The detainees will instead be monitored in less expensive ways, the agency said.

    Which ways?

    So the “career officials” are not free to make judgments and implement decisions made necessary by congressional policies forced by earlier White House decisions?

    They want a last minute “check back in before you do the stuff we forced you to do in case we change our minds because it turns out that our decisions were stupid beyond belief–we may want to tell you to not do what we’ve been threatening to do for 18 months now–because it might turn out that the cost/benefit analysis has blown up in our faces…” Is that what they want???

      Until March 1…….

      No money is cut from any programs……..

      and BTW the money that will be cut FIRST, will be the yearly automatic increase that had been written into the Federal Budget with the last Federal Budget that was passed…….

      Why do you think the DEMocRATS in the Senate have been adamant in not passing a Federal budget?

      I blame the republiCANT’S also……they have no backbone……

      Both parties are opposite ends of the same BIG GOVERNMENT PARTY.

        The reasons the dems have not wanted to pass a budget are not complicated to understand. A little confusing, simply because it’s not the way that Americans think about things. It is, however, the way that americans think (those who live in the other america)….Here’s the article again….. written by Greg Richards in July 2012 about the magic of continuing resolutions and current services….it’s worth reading and working out the math and the phrasings…this IS what they are doing, and have been doing for five years.

        These people are not confused. They’re not chasing their tails. They’re not hunkered down worrying about being found out. The POTUS schedule, per the White House website is, for tomorrow is only two items: at 11:15 am, we have the presidential daily briefing, following by lunch with the veep. That’s it. So these people are not worried. They are not scurrying.

        They are working a plan.

        That is what they are doing. That is ALL they are doing.

          I have said for over three years that this man is not dumb by any means. He is pure, unadulterated evil. He has known from Day One what he’s been doing. All of these moving pieces are different pieces of the puzzle. From Helicopter Ben printing money 24/7 to obamacare, to bank bailouts where they made banks take money when they didn’t need it, nor would they always let them pay it back, so they could keep the boot on their neck, to Big Sis letting thousands of criminals out of jail. It’s a big puzzle, kind of like 3-D chess. This is Cloward-Piven on steroids. There are so many things going on that it is nearly impossible to keep up. That is what they want. :evil: :evil: :evil:

          Must be a nice job to have, nothing to do until 11:15 and then it’s just half way listen to some people talking while you’re playing golf on the computer, then eat lunch with the crazy uncle and your day is finished. You get paid a good salary, get room and board, expensive clothing for you, your wife and kids, private airplane for you and one for your wife too, as many paid vacations as you want and paid armed security as well.

    Bernanke admitted at his latest press conference, when pressed, that ANY spending cut would collapse the GDP. So escalating amounts of outright theft, waste and abuse are OBLIGATORY to keep this charade going. Any contraction in spending signals the death knell for this artificial system they have created, which is dependent upon the continual creation of DEBT.

    Give the unsustainable model, there is no question that the economy will be collapsed. If you don’t believe me, speak to Southerners who discovered trunkloads of worthless fiat notes stashed in attics after the post Civil War collapse. They (The Progs in the New Reich) know it, but they want to time pulling the plug when it is most advantageous to them. I guess they’re not ready yet to pull the plug on the economy because they don’t have all their ducks in a row yet to enact complete totalarian tyranny. After all, we still have our guns. And ammo.

The Cartel that Obama and Holder sold illegal weapons to. They telling us that cuts to our military and police will affect our safety..H3LL it already usually takes about 15 mins or more for the police to get to the location of a 911 call..

    So now on the other hand they want to ban our means of self protection–Our guns…

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/27/us-usa-fiscal-woodward-idUSBRE91Q11620130227

    Journalist Bob Woodward on Wednesday criticized Barack Obama’s handling of the automatic U.S. budget cuts set to take effect this week, calling the president’s decision to hold back on military deployments “madness.”

    Now Mark Lefine is deconstructing some of the nonsense in this article which essentially wants to describe Woodward’s opposition as sort of dispute between him (personally) and the White House. Reuters apparently trying to deflect any sense that the king is actually doing anything wrong or outrageous.

    But Woodward’s out there getting it said and calling he king’s bluff.

    obama forgot something very important when he set himself up as king: the kings of the old days specific had a court jester and one other person who served a particular purpose–and sometimes it was the court jester who had this job also. The job was to whisper in the king’s ear once every day, “Your highness, one day you will die.”

    He forgot that part. God bless Bob Woodward. Who knew that the one who helped take Nixon down would have to serve this role again. Nixon’s way of handling himself as he was being exposed for things like adhesive tape and tape recorders are jaywalking offenses when they’re set next to this american POTUS.

    ADD: This article has better context and more extensive quotes from Woodward:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/bob-woodward-obama-sequester-white-house-reporting-price-politics-2013-2

    The Defense Department said in early February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the sequester.

    “Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’” Woodward said on MSNBC.

    I’m still trying to figure out how they came up with $164/day to keep these illegals locked up. I think a Texas inmate costs about $50/day. They still have 7 months left to cut costs out of this years fiscal budget, but yet the first step that makes sense to them is to release inmates? Someone needs to lose their job over this decision.
