It seems that the Obama Administration has been caught lying about the sequester. Not only that. the MSM has been in on exposing it. Here is what the Politico collected…

As POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush and Carrie Budoff Brown report on the home page, the White House now has pulled back from issuing doomsday scenarios after some of their claims fell flat. Here are six such claims:

“You know, those Capitol janitors will not get as much overtime. I’m sure they think less pay, that they’re taking home, does hurt.” — Gene Sperling, director of the White House economic council, on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“On the issue of the janitors, if you work for an hourly wage and you earn overtime, and you depend on that overtime to make ends meet, it is simply a fact that a reduction in overtime is a reduction in your pay.” — White House spokesman Jay Carney

If the sequester hits, federal prosecutors will have to “let criminals go.” — President Barack Obama

“Federally assisted programs like Meals on Wheels would be able to serve 4 million fewer meals to seniors.” — White House fact sheet on the impact of sequestration

“There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips” because of sequestration. — Education Secretary Arne Duncan on “Face the Nation.”

“70,000 young children would be kicked off Head Start” – White House fact sheet on sequester
“Up to 70,000 children would lose access to Head Start and early Head Start services.” – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius

So, in other words, they lied.  Just like in every election, they claim that the GOP is going to…

  • Freeze the children.
  • Starve the elderly
  • (or is it freeze the elderly and starve the children-I always get that confused)
  • Take away Social Security
  • Take away Medicare
  • Cause women to be raped (Though it’s pretty clear that the Democrats heavily favor rape)
  • Cause the ice caps to melt and for everyone to OMG DIEEEEEE!
  • Cause people to lose their jobs, or be paid less.
  • To cause people to not be able to afford health insurance (heh-heh).

Lies, and more lies.  And, they will keep coming.

At the time of this writing, tens of millions of Americans are bracing for an potentially powerful combination of a winter storm with hurricane Sandy, labeled “Frankenstorm.”

Here are some excerpts and video…

From Jesse Ferrell of Accuweather…

I said on my WeatherMatrix Facebook Page last night:

“The weather hasn’t ‘scared’ me for a long time, but what I’m seeing tonight on the forecast models, and the seriousness with which I’m seeing famous meteorologists discuss next week’s historic storm, has gotten me a little worried. If you live in any STATE on the East Coast, it’s time to think about preparing for next week’s storm because the track is not certain but the potential devastation seems to be. Tomorrow in my blog I’ll be talking about worst-case scenarios and what you need to be prepared for. Some simple steps can keep next week from being a nightmare for you and your family.”

There were a lot of other “quotables” said in that meeting which will give you some insight into what our meteorologists are thinking. A couple that stood out to me:

– “This will be a catastrophic storm over a large area.”

– “I’m scared about storm surge in NYC, and it will come sooner than people think.”

– “There could be power outages for weeks, and it could affect the election.”

– “The 00Z GFS 900 mb winds essentially show power being knocked out from D.C. to Maine.”

– “This type of storm has never been seen before by meteorologists.”

From Mashable…

From the WaPo…

With computer models locked in on the eventuality of a punishing blow for East Coast from Hurricane Sandy (with the latest model runs favoring the northern mid-Atlantic), analyses suggest this storm may be unlike anything the region has ever experienced.

Model simulations have consistently simulated minimum pressures below 950 mb, which would be the lowest on record in many areas.

“MODELS SHOW PRESSURE WELL BEYOND WHAT HAS EVER BEEN OBSERVED NEAR THE NJ/NY COAST (EVEN EXCEEDING THE 1938 LONG ISLAND EXPRESS [HURRICANE])”, writes NOAA’s Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC).

From the Weather Channel..

I’ll be keeping up with this story with more posts. I obviously have a personal interest, as the CH 2.0 bunker is in the target area.

Tragedy on High Seas: Love Boat Sinks!

Share

Iceberg dead ahead!Tragedy struck today as the Pacific Princess, piloted by Captain Merrill Stubing went down in the Pacific, killing 1500 on board.  Initial reports indicate the the Pacific Princess, cruising in the vicinity of Hawaii’s Big Island, hit an iceberg.  Authorities are still trying to determine how the ship hit an iceberg in tropical waters.

Shortly after 11:40 PM local time an urgent Morse code message was received from the Pacific Princess:

Collision with iceberg.  Taking on water.  Send help. Bartender refuses to go down with ship.

Despite the Coast Guard sending out helicopters the ship could not be saved.  All that was initially found were a few deck chairs.  The Pacific Princess had no lifeboats on board.  Said a friend of Captain Stubing:

Merrill was very concerned that their were no lifeboats.  He told me it was another example of what he called ruthless corporate cost-cutting.  He often petitioned to get lifeboats.  As he told me, ‘Lifeboats are a great place to have sex with passengers.  I mean, come on.  It’s a cruise line!’

Despite the official story of a collision with an iceberg many suspect foul play in the ship’s sinking.  Captain Stubing, Gopher, Doc and Isaac the bartender all served together in Vietnam.  Some believe they were involved in the My Lai massacre and that the sinking was revenge.

Still  others believe that the ship’s doctor (pictured here) Take your clothes off dearwho lost his license for sleeping with his patients and was about to be arrested might have somehow brought the ship down to hide an escape.

The cruise director of the Pacific Princess, Julie McCoy You want some blow? was also under investigation for allegedly running a cocaine ring from the ship.  Emails from McCoy to a syndicate on land often speak of “getting more blow” and “Passengers need blow.“  The FBI allegedly was ready to arrest McCoy when the ship docked.

As for the ship’s purser Burl “Gopher” Smith family values! he was a Republican which naturally made him a highly suspicious character on board the Pacific Princess.  Said one crew mate anonymously:

We were trying to get our freak on and he comes along talking about family values.  We all hated him.

So it seems that the truth behind the Pacific Princess’s sinking will have to await further investigation.  Currently undersea robots are mapping the wreckage, which lies broken in two on the bottom of the Pacific.

There is however some good news.  There was one survivor.  The ship’s bartender Isaac Washington I aint working for whitey no mo! was found floating on an inflatable raft not far from the ship’s last known location.

When picked up by the Coast Guard a wet and shivering Washington said:

Whitey wants me to go down with ship.  I say chump go down with ship!
