Barry Is No Harry

truman_buck_stopsHere is a famous picture of President Harry S. Truman with a sign on his desk that says, "The Buck Stops Here."

While I would not have agreed with much of President Truman's domestic policies, when it came to foreign policy he was a hawk compared to many of his predecessors.

What you could always admire about "Give "Em Hell Harry" is that he was plain-spoken and intellectually honest. Again, that doesn't mean you would always agree with him, but you could respect him.

Here's a video of Harry Truman in his later years explaining a president's level of responsibility:

In fact, Barack Obama has invoked a revised version of President Truman's famous saying:

The problem is Barry, no one is buying "The Buck Stops With Me" mantra. Just take a look at these highlights from this past week's press conference to the failure of ObamaCare. Please watch the whole video because it is very revelatory:

You are watching a man completely disconnected from reality and suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. When you watch the press conference, there is no way this man is allowing the buck stop to with him. He can say it does, but his mangled explanations were still deflections of responsibility for the complete and unresolvable failure of ObamaCare.

The Cupboard Is Not Bare


(Artwork by Jason Zoglmann)

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said that the federal cupboard is bare when asked about cutting deficit spending instead of raising the debt ceiling once again.

Now bless her heart I'm sure Mrs. Pelosi truly believes that because she's never seen a government program that she didn't want to start (if it would buy her votes).

Nor has there ever existed a government program, even if proved to be a failure (which would mean most), that she would be willing to cut.

I once actually had a pleasant conversation with Nancy Pelosi on the phone and so let's just say this blog post is my way of returning her nice call. I want to help the former Speaker of the House and any other legislator who believes the cupboard is bare.

Trust me sister, thar's plenty pork that can be cut.

The good folks at Citizen's Against Government Waste annually publish their Prime Cuts Summary of government programs that could be easily cut from the federal government. Here's a quick rundown of that summary:

(The savings would be over a 5-year period)

Cut $61.76 billion from Department of Agriculture subsidies

Cut $785 million from the Commerce Department by eliminating the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership

Cut $18 billion from the Department of Defense in unnecessary and unrequested spending

Cut $2.3 billion from the Department of Energy by privatizing two federal utilities programs

Cut $24 billion from Health and Human Services Department by eliminating 50% of improper Medicare payments

Cut $18 billion from Department of Housing and Urban Development by eliminating the Community Development Block Grants and Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (NeighborWorks America)

Cut over $2 billion from the Interior Department by suspending federal land purchases and eliminating Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) State Recreation Grants

Cut nearly $7 billion from the Justice Department in community grants

Cut $6.45 billion from the Labor Department by repealing the Davis-Bacon Act and ending OSHA's Harwood Grants

Cut $7.85 billion from the Transportation Department by ending subsidies for Amtrak and ending the Essential Air Service (EAS). EAS is a prime example of a temporary program that has morphed into a monster.

Save $730 million by having the Treasury Department switching from paper $1 bills to coins.

Further cuts could be realized by eliminating the following worthless programs:

AmeriCorps - $3.5 billion; Legal Services Corporation - $2.1 billion; National Endowment for the Humanities and National Endowment for the Arts - $1.7 billion

And my favorite cut of all! We could save $9.6 billion over the next five years just by reducing by 25% our support to the United Nations, which means we would save $38.4 billion if we just stop supporting it altogether and throw them out of our country.

So you see Dear Nancy, while you may not think cutting $165 billion in pork is not much, it would at least be a good faith act on the part of Congress.

Then there's the repeal of ObamaCare...

Yes Sarah, There Will Be Death Panels

So it seems that Sarah Palin was right after all. There will be death panels under ObamaCare when it comes to neurosurgery for stroke and aneurysm for people 70 years and older.

Mind you, under ObamaCare, these people are not considered people, they are described as "units."

I know that there have been many superfluous comparisons of the Obama Administration to Adolf Hitler, but the Third Reich did indeed call some people "units."

This audio below is from my good buddy Mark Levin's show from a caller last November. Doug Ross, the great blogger at Director Blue has the transcript of the call and below is the audio. Please pass this far and wide!

The Injustice of Chief Justice John Roberts

“Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion is so full of contradictions and convolutions that he ought to resign for that reason alone. The fact that the Court’s ruling was an egregious blow to liberty is all the more reason to ignore this judicial stupidity.”

That is my take on the recent Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare and we tackle this head on in this week’s The Truth Newsletter.
