Measure of letting all the illegal aliens no they did that boy when he wanna fire the -- people he didn't do what -- they're just they're just being used as the scapegoats here for a for broad. For Barack Obama you know -- it didn't it didn't work out quite the way he planned so somebody else's got to take the fall it's not going to be him. He's the he never takes the fall for anybody. -- there's a great column today in the in the in The Washington Times by Charles hurt in and -- the -- -- get a guitar sort -- where he's going or bar ago. A tale of hostage taking not involving Iran. Exactly. Exactly. Washington breath we will breathlessly watches the dramatic countdown to the coming sequester cuts. For many around here at the apocalypse. Is upon us. The most hair raising part of all this has been to watch President Obama react to the notion of cuts and his beloved federal government. He will heats in colonels like a slog. Who's had salt -- like that collect personal bond being compared slog. The terrorists will overtake us. No longer -- the federal government be able to continue its fantastic job of guarding the border. Well -- -- those were all star. These are seriously some of the threats mr. Obama and his administration that made against the American people these cuts go through. Then he began shooting hostages. Homeland Security yesterday announced they already begun releasing hundreds of illegal aliens held in prisons around the country awaiting deportation it's. This probably should not come as a major surprise in it did of course since it is very much the strategy preferred by mr. Obama when he does not get his way. Last year when Republicans fought against raising the debt ceiling so that mr. Obama could continue won his drunken stupor towards doubling our national -- mr. Obama. Threatened to start shooting seniors he not -- shut subtly threatened that he would simply not pay out Social Security checks to the elderly be did not get his way. Anyone after veterans and threatened the hold up their checks as well. Terroristic tactics being fairly effective mr. Obama got his way. In the fictional hostage tale -- the players have a running gag about what the name Argo means. Our goal screw yourself the fictional film within the film's producer explains. We're also be a fitting explanation mr. Obama could give to the American people and as for his diabolical tactics in this very real hostage crisis today. -- Argo screw yourself or bar ago all bar ago 187746943. 2218774694322. -- the big Republicans say they want to give him the right to make the cuts mean not that he doesn't already have the right to make the -- to -- wanna know what's gonna stop them. He wants this if he wants to what do away with the Department of the Interior. One of these -- -- worthless government agencies. But the -- he doesn't want he doesn't want. This what he said yesterday in in Virginia. He told Virginians he doesn't want congress to give him the authority to implement the sequestration cuts as he sees fit. Just minutes after he denounced the law to require written across the board cuts. This Michelle Malkin see here's the thing BO doesn't do decisions. He gives orders big difference.

Regional here. This is from this is from commentary. In the great sick or -- sequestration. Debate here is what we know now. Eight the president has patrimony that -- she's the father of an idea he now characterizes as a brutal. And senseless assault on America this is again this was his right there. European is his administration's. The president and his then chief of staff Jack -- misled the public about their role in giving birth to a secret to the sequester idea. See house Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones. But senate Democrats refused to act that's what Boehner spent on the drop their grass. Mr. Obama has brushed off any Republican plan to give him flexibility allocate the 85 billion in spending cuts which makes most sense of the president wants to replace reckless cuts with responsible. Whatever one thinks about the merits of cutting 85 billion dollars out of an almost three point six trillion dollar budget. The effort to portray the cut is ushering in days of tribulation distress distress and anguish of trouble in one of darkness in bloom is. How to put this. Insane. -- this guy saying it's in saying you have you you have Bob Bob Woodward saying it's madness. And yet most of the mainstream media is just playing along. If the sequester cuts going to affect domestic agencies would have to cut. 5%. From their budgets after having received a 17%. Increase during the president's first term not counting. But more than a quarter trillion dollar stimulus bonus. But what makes this particular episode -- somewhat different than past ones is that mr. Obama has supplemented his demagoguery this time with a touch of cruelty. That is he has made it clear that he wants to inflict as much harm as possible on Americans. In order to make the cuts live up to the -- The president's greatest fear is that to sequester cuts will kick in and life will go on. I got news his greatest fear is going to be realized on Friday. So he's threatening to passover and wasteful programs in order at target works central once again this is the this is the prop two would have to override. In a mall you know. They say they won't raise the taxes you say -- schools need more money -- cut the football team we won't cut the assistant deputy. Superintendent was making a 120000 -- at a football team that's -- he's going the same thing. Emily whole global which a Washington health care lobbyist who leads a coalition of 3000. -- profit groups fighting but these so called cuts gave away the game in her comment to the Washington Post. The good news is the world doesn't end on March 2 the bad news is the world doesn't end on March 2. The worst case scenario for -- the sequester hits and nothing really bad happened to Republicans say see that wasn't so bad. So we have a president determined to administers much pain as we count on Americans even as he excoriated Republicans for their quote. Meat cleaver approach. That will give us a rate key programs. It's really quite remarkable this concoction of war willful deception hyperbole the -- -- Demagoguery mismanagement deliberate harm and to think that a long time ago when a galaxy far far away. Barack Obama promised reported and the senate -- instead he is added massively to harm he is doing to our political -- Yours very nearly incalculable. At 18774694322. 50 wait I'm -- tax accountant I'm showing everyone how much more they will pay in taxes for employer paid insurance these idiots don't believe me. Well Donna Brazile as one -- -- and all you want your clients but she didn't she she shocked to find this out. Federal at twelve sevenths -- federal employees now pay Social Security taxes older federal employees in the old retirement system didn't have to that system was phased out in the nineties. 18774.

Hey all right a couple of things yeah you know maybe the Republicans should stop pushing back at the media like like Keith Ellison that. You know but I don't know. All -- that would that would never work you know many and it would say they they would say you know these were these Republicans are out of their minds that not only -- they neanderthals but now there right now they're nasty and mean spirited. Update. They'll battery -- so it was. Kind of Boston -- Julio only -- on. Saw -- -- -- imagine it's so -- so. You know who you are are you guys. I don't know what -- more.

It you know they say they're gonna raise taxes 25% when they -- -- -- of 10%. So the last few years the the Obama administration has been putting out the occasional trial balloon about how you know people don't know how to manage their own retirement account to. It would be better forum for the government to take over the accounts and give them idea. You know bonds are or -- our treasury notes and that that way they wouldn't have to worry about it via crash. Okay now we're not mean we're making it up many minutes and they -- it's and the -- At all I -- it was. Sort -- like Baltic.

One 877469432. -- so there's this guy Keith Ellison he's -- Leo real radical from many I think usage is district is -- mostly Minneapolis -- you'll missing all but mainly Minneapolis. And he he was on last night with with Sean Hannity from these Sean -- was ratio from the studio when. Allison was in the it was in the capital city and your area -- super reverb effect you know for because his is where -- echoing. Down through the through the hallowed halls of Capitol Hill. And but he hugest he just went right after. Right after Sean Hannity and tell you Sean Hannity was asking him on. Very polite asking legit questions and and -- just decided to -- jump -- with them and -- week it runs on for six minutes we don't -- play all pulling for him will play -- play a little bit. Opponents like democratic congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota congressman all the Macs are. You bit. I guess is that's what we can describe his staying on message some of the Democratic Party I would argue is very good that let me. Pretty good attitude I I kind of think you quite frankly you are the worst excuse for a journalist of servicing these in the wired together I mean yeah. You heard me I didn't say it again in here. I heard you I mean what you just displayed. Was not journalism it was yellow journalism there wasn't anything close to try to tell the American people what's really going on. And I mr. Shockey yellow journalism big. To play you mama his own words as yellow journalism but what the background music in with your lead out before you do you let the president talk. Let me tell you I was here the president everything the president said is absolutely true. Yeah and for you to try to make the American people think that it is it. It's deceptive on your part and it's a breach of everything depends every every every journalistic ethic I've ever heard it was just violated by you. And the president was truthful the president was honest the president what the president said it was dead on accurate. And for you to say the president is to blame here is ridiculous. I was there August 2000 in an eleven win the Republicans your party which shameless. Not a Republican or not because you're like perhaps you are nothing but a Republican and again and yes you are -- -- you are sir I'm a registered I mean it was sir. Well let me just say I don't know renters say let's get you on the list of concerns still for the Republican Party can -- you sir the sir we have constantly. No alibi then 100% of the time he don't get what we're. You know it's OK well good let me just say this look for evidence that is that what the president's that is absolutely true. The president the people watching the show should ignore all of the all of that commentary that you put in and all of these -- music that you put on. And she -- just what the president actually said because what the president said was true. The president you by the -- are inaccurate when you say. That the president is to blame here he's not. It was the Republicans and August 2011 and said that they were going to. Caused the American economy did default on debts we already acquired unless -- unless they got deep deep but substantial cuts. And we ended up with a downgrade because of what the Republicans did. And after that we set up this thing called the the the could mean the super committee John Kerry all Republican members on the super committee can already pledge to Grover Norquist they would not raise revenue only -- cuts. And then after it failed as it always was going to. We have to that would. We'll ask a question again -- -- give an accurate and I know. I'm giving you plenty of time to -- congressman now now he's a little bit of -- -- get -- oh you're so nice to get the award in my own program John king and matter of fact I ask you as you said the president was -- -- the congressman coming -- I won't give you your chance I get it every minute story and Tom Allen used. -- -- -- three minutes relax. So I'm gonna project for years ago I think you're -- on the program to answer why don't want to get a couple what he said hell and that's an assassin hit my. Congressman and that -- congressman let me ask him. What I think is right so angry you so angry let me ask every question -- agree I'm. Yeah -- value because I think is actually. I'm going to. Here's my question here's my question for the first time -- -- listen I invited you on ID 83 minutes to -- now let me ask a question we'll have a discussion. I haven't done. In the spirit of bipartisanship let's find the dialogue -- that's what you want a republic Max I'm a registered as a conservative I am concerned you wanna make the thousand dollar bet that number just a conservative wanna get 101000 element of our New York. I don't bad. I'm just telling you have a registered conservative -- but I wrote called conservative victory had it right Republican that you have a question for me sir yes yeah. Now first thought was Max Baucus and it was Bob Woodward that said that the president requested to sequester point one point number two. My question to -- is very simple. Barack Obama could you said that what he said is -- to control and here's my question on the here's my question Republican Party. Congressman there's a provision of the budget the congressman. A lot of us public -- are responsible here budgeted for -- arrest I definitely -- know -- and I know -- broken record now let me get you my question you're broken -- OK thank you here's my question. So Barack Obama said in 2008 when is running for office that George Bush was irresponsible and unpatriotic for. When he became president we had ten trillion dollars in debt. You went down sixteen trillion -- at -- -- sixteen trillion dollars in net what I harassment I'm here to speak to sixteen trillion dollars in. It's not about you wanna I wanna ask you because you thought about that here's my question and it's important. You wanted to start out with sixteen trillion let's do something and Lex closed loop like -- large corporate and that's the -- 2000 jobs should not be. So that you can ride out the thing that ExxonMobil. And and Chevron should not get a -- big Greenville and a subsidy. Let's start there and be ready to be putting our who get. Pay less oil and congressman -- you -- your reasoning goes well. What can I ask questions and yes it hit a simple question you don't get as much. On your question around you is it immoral. Is an immoral to you actually sixteen to have -- lot more what do -- that's more. I didn't do anything similar -- you say things that aren't sure beginning what examples are. Well to try to say. Bet it is that it is the president's fault in his to blame is wrong and ball and we have sixties -- -- George Bush has six children as if we didn't and six trillion dollars in advance since he's been president not no no no you did and it's extremely admitted that. Since he's been president yeah that's right let's talk about the -- And fewer total waste of time album and on the does our audience deserves better thank you for me I tried to give it a shot and coming up -- 187746. Hole came up what the I'd be here of sequestration. -- doctor -- wanted to get but you know was impossible with the -- just you know trying to -- filibuster. You know I mean how can you what how. How can you blame the Republicans win it's. His legislation it's like we said earlier this is a guy. Who introduces legislation gets passed in -- around the country campaigning. Against the implementation of the act bit. He has -- it as a belt. Now your next with how we cargo ahead now. I hourly and I'm not so every time we hear about these domestic car. And budget problems. We always are looking to assault and domestic. On the back of whether it's federal employees. Taxpayers etc. you know they hear about how stupid foreign aid. -- friends to. We're out there certainly -- talk about it certainly people are talking about it today Allen bit we've we've led to a three college mention -- -- -- of -- on the other shows too. We don't we don't give out as much foreign -- as we used to -- you know you're you're absolutely right I mean we were talking earlier I mean I think we -- six -- sold. At a reduced price six F sixteens to Egypt. Mean all those people are brought those people are not our friends both people are are now. Berry -- pretty much our enemies even though you know we're not -- saying that officially you know. Others -- -- throwing you know when you look at and domestic situation you look at your house well. If you're running into financial issues are -- going to be treating all your friends to dinner and drinks not. It's -- say so you know. And you know what else you know what else now if they upon taking a 2% pay cut I'm Monica and not pay the mortgage you know. That's basically that's what that's what the bowl actually you say. If it I don't know if if we have to take a 2% pay cut you're gonna have a tough time getting getting down to walk. Your vacation on a commercial airliner because we're gonna happily off your traffic and for me how ridiculous is that. Mean I like out I don't like -- and DO. It's -- it's a chess game and that is killing Jews you know obviously. Her people is -- fact there are different departments. Maybe not as much as so you know I'm not as -- errors made out to be -- people -- Could be a factor whether it's our government employees contractors. And you know the -- stood up. But I think that when you look at you know the last ten years so we you're -- to April 2 wars we're fighting with borrowed money. You know we did we do 2% cut -- Social Security on that program that's in trouble. You know -- -- No it doesn't it also doesn't make sense to set up a the biggest entitlement program all witches obamacare Russell called the so called Affordable Care Act which is the definitely be an Affordable Care Act thanks for the thanks for the call now. Sean you're next with how we cargo ahead -- Hi -- would you go there for. Alison my god it's does that not sound like a crazy race with a bad and that's typical liberal as you try to discuss. Anything -- again it's like they think you will want to.
