  1. Mr.President, do you have a comment?

    Senate majority leader Harry Reid says that “Everybody” is “willing to pay more” taxes. He said so in an interview with a Nevada Public Radio host.

    “The only people who feel there shouldn’t be more coming in to the federal government from the rich people are the Republicans in the Congress,” Reid told the radio host, according to Roll Call. “Everybody else, including the rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more.”

    Reid rebuked the Nevada Public Radio host when he was asked what Republicans would have to concede to get Medicare and Social Security cuts on the table.

    “You keep talking about Medicare and Social Security. Get something else in your brain. Stop talking about that. That is not going to happen this time. There is not going to be a grand bargain,” Reid said. “What we need to do is have Murray and her counterpart in the House, Ryan, work together to come up with something to get out of this senseless sequestration and start the budgeting process so that we can do normal appropriation bills.”

    Reid said Republicans would have to agree to more tax revenue to get anywhere near a bigger deal.

    “They have their mind set on doing nothing, nothing more on revenue, and until they get off that kick, there’s not going to be a grand bargain on — there’s not going to be a small bargain,” Reid said. “We’re just going to have to do something to work our way through sequestration.”

  2. Mr.President, would you have a comment on this?

    To secure the Muslim worlds common interests, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has formed a new MEDIA advisory committee to foster the creation of international laws criminalizing the criticism of Islam. In other words, Muslim countries want to criminalize and silence free speech globally.

    • This is from a meeting of the OIC in Gabon in 8/12.

      The Gabon conference has short, medium and long term goals for putting in place an action plan to fight Islamophobia. It asks member states to create funding for media campaigns to counter intolerance against Islam and discourage using expressions such as “Islamic” fascists or “Islamic” extremists for criminal terrorists. The OIC underlines the importance of developing Muslim’s own narrative on daily issues such as the environment, climate change, social justice, development, poverty, etc.

      For the medium term, the resolution asks member states to implement media literacy programs in schools to combat misperceptions, prejudices and hate speech. SNIP

      According to the long term goals of the OIC media resolution, professional media people in member states are called to “develop, articulate and implement voluntary codes of conduct.” It sets up scholarship programs for Westerners to study in the Muslim world and encourage reporter-exchange programs between the Muslim world and the West in order to disseminate this information throughout media outlets.

    • Here’s the short title of the UN’s Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18 : Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of, and discrimination, incitement to violence, and violence against persons based on religion or belief, was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council in March 2011. Among its many specific points, it highlights barriers to religiously tolerant societies and provides recommendations on how these barriers can be overcome. The resolution calls upon all member states to foster religious freedom and pluralism, to ensure religious minorities are properly represented, and to consider adopting measures to criminalize incitement to imminent violence based on religion or belief. Other recommendations include creating government programs to promote inter-religious tolerance and dialogue, training government employees to be sensitive toward religious sensitivities, and engaging in outreach initiatives.

      • The DoJ got right on those recommendations. In December 2011:

        It has been a long time coming, but the Obama Administration has now officially banned the truth. Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole declared Wednesday at a conference in Washington that he had “recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security.” This “reevaluation” will remove all references to Islam in connection with any examination of Islamic jihad terror activity. The Obama Administration has now placed off-limits any investigation of the beliefs, motives and goals of jihad terrorists.

        Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized that training materials for the FBI would be purged of everything politically incorrect: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”

        Holton said that he had spoken with Attorney General Eric Holder about FBI training materials that Holton claimed were “egregiously false,” and that Holder “is firmly committed to making sure that this is over….we’re going to fix it.” Holton said that this “fix” was particularly urgent because the rejected training materials “pose a significant threat to national security, because they play into the false narrative propagated by terrorists that the United States is at war with Islam.”

  3. Does any know if Moo will be along for the ride? Granted, she may still be bed ridden after having to weed her Garden without the benefit of her servants for a while but……We do have some tasty shopping in NYC……..

    • And no one in “media” has figured this out… or are they just being good little sycophants and not saying anything?

      Imagine if someone in the “media” made a prime-time editorial about this ‘remarks/fund-raising’ scam Obama has…

  4. Mr. President: Yesterday a woman was fired for talking to Sean Hannitty. Are you not afraid that a lot of Americans will find you “thin-skinned” for your actions? And Mr. Hannitty is giving her a year’s wages because she was fired by your staff. Are you going to go after your staff because they treated her worse then a drug dealer?

      • Hannitty was told by the president to call this number. He did.
        The Obamacare person answered his questions truthfully.

        But I understand when it comes to the truth…this president is the biggest liar of them all.

      • No doubt that 2011 rule issued by the leviathan was covered in detail during the mass training session she attended last month. Of course all the authoritarians will say ignorance of the rules is no excuse.

        Ms Sillybus should have been canned the first time she violated the Hatch Act by campaigning on the taxpayers dime, but since she’s higher on the food chain than this young woman, she gets a pass.

  5. This President wonders why he’s only getting through to half of Americans. It is because he spends all his time catering to Democrats. Is it so hard to figure out why we live in such a partisan divide.
