I love it when a progressive/socialist plan goes awry. It is so inspiring to see the truth come out when a mainscream medium reports an erroneous account of what actually went on and who the main bad actor is as he is revealed in narative, video and a still photograph.

It appears the Associated Press has either been duped by a partisan government union big-wig pretending to be a beleaguered government employee facing furlough due to a government shutdown, or they knew he was an activist and withheld the information from their readers.
The AP released a video titled: “EPA Worker: Furloughs Hit Employees Hard.” The video is described as “Paul Sacker is an engineer for the Environmental Protection Agency who was furloughed because of the government shutdown. Sacker says politicians don’t understand the impact the shutdown has on workers.”
In the video Mr. Sacker laments the fact that he’s being furloughed. He talks about how it will personally affect him and how he will have to dig into his savings “as the paychecks stop coming.” He decries “the tea party that are using ideological principals to hold the government hostage.” He also says “our president needs to do more leadership,” whatever that means.
Here’s the video:
Now here’s the context the Associated Press didn’t give you.
Paul Sacker is the president of American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 3911. Here he is in an image from the union’s Facebook page:
Mr. Sacker’s been busy. He also gave an interview to the New York NPR station, WNYC lamenting the horrible conditions he is forced to live under now that the government has been shutdown for about eight hours. To WNYC’s credit, they do make passing mention of his union affiliation in the three minute interview, but not in the written article on their website.
Mr. Sacker is one popular government worker. In June he wrote an article for the Times Ledger in Queens. this time, lamenting the sequester cuts. The narrative is the exact same as we are seeing today regarding the government shutdown.
Needless to say, the AFGE endorsed President Obama for reelection in 2012.
If the Associated Press knew of Mr. Sacker’s union affiliation, certainly they should have mentioned it in their report to provide some context. If they didn’t know, they know now.
Trouble Floating The ObamaScare Boat
Will The Senate Refloat The Boat
It pains me to see representatives of the US make fools of themselves, but Obama’s administration has packed-in more Silly Sallies than its share. John Kerry as Secretary of State has busted the harness (if there ever was one) broken the reins of diplomacy and demonstrated how weak he truly is. Weak, except for promises to deliver bucks and armaments to potential enemies, i.e. Egypt for one, in the middle-east and surrounding area.
Believe it or not, it looks like some members of Obama’s administration are catching up to his wild and wily ways. Read the excerpt of a CBS report and then follow the link after the excerpt to understand the consternation.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In four months as secretary of state, John Kerry has certainly promised great things. Now he has to deliver.
In the Middle East, he has raised hopes his solo diplomatic effort can produce a historic breakthrough ending six decades of Arab-Israeli conflict.
He has pledged to bring Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government to heel and to work with Russia to end Syria’s civil war.
He has suggested rolling back U.S. missile defense in the Pacific if China can help rid North Korea of nuclear weapons. He has hinted at possible one-on-one talks between the U.S. and the reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if it would help.
Since succeeding Hillary Rodham Clinton as America’s top diplomat, Kerry has issued several as yet undelivered — and perhaps undeliverable — pledges to allies and rivals alike, proving a source of concern for Obama’s policy team. It is trying to rein in Kerry somewhat, according to officials, which is difficult considering Kerry has spent almost half his tenure so far in the air or on the road, from where his most dissonant policy statements have come.
The White House quickly distanced itself from both Kerry’s North Korea remarks and has now, since President Barack Obama’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Northern Ireland this past week, seen up close the strength of Moscow’s resistance to Kerry’s Syria strategy.
All the officials interviewed for this story spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to evaluate Kerry’s performance publicly.
Reporting for work at the State Department in February, the former Democratic senator from Massachusetts quickly outlined his ambitions.
Clinton still harbored thoughts of a second potential presidential run when she arrived at the department. But aides say Kerry, a 69-year-old Vietnam veteran, is giving himself completely to a job that in many ways is the climax of his political career and the realization of a lifelong dream after years as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Now he wants to tackle head-on the world’s thorniest foreign policy conundrums.

Let’s face it folks, Barak H. Obama, the President of these United States, has been having some more bad days! “Obama scare”, his health plan, is proving too complicated to administer and too costly to fund. Even long-time party friends are looking for ways to stop what appears to be an out of control steam roller destroying everything good about health care in our nation. Our only hope is that the U.S. Congress will choose not to fund the program in its present form.
Everyone knows that Barak had very little work experience before he moved to the White House. I guess this is the real reason that he spends so much time away from Washington. Lacking expertise in administration, he hates being in an office where his knowledge in this area becomes far too eviden
Among the White House staff, he seems to be known for his ability to “evade” office duties and on very short notice, order his Air Force #1 crew to fly off to a far away state or nation to handle what turns out to be a problem that any state department clerk could have taken care of. His flight crew must look forward to days when their airplane is scheduled for mandatory maintenance and won’t be flying. Only then can they be reasonably sure that they won’t be spending the night in some foreign capital, far from home.
Well into his second term, he is starting to have problems with the press. They were so much friendlier during his first four years. Now since that”Benghazi 9-11 thing”, Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” adventure, and the “Clinton bottle blond’s” deserting him, things are really starting to get akward. When all is said and done, Hillary was the person most responsible for the failure to provide adequate security at Bengazi, thus causing the deaths of the four Americans. She was the Secretary of State. As she is the Democrat’s most probable presidential candidate for 2016, he had to let her leave. He could not risk having her image damaged by the congressional investigations that will soon begin. Things back in Chicago were never this complicated!
For damage control, they will find some State Department foreign service officer near retirement to take the blame for Benghazi. While the person who really was responsible for the lack of response on the night of 9-11 is Barak, he will get off the hook once again. After he had received an “early evening” phone report of the attack, he took no further action. After all, he had an important speech in Las Vegas the next day and he had to get ready for that. It must not be easy being president?
Now the hot news, his own party now wants to talk to the “Whistle Blowers” from Bengazi. More to come?
Wait they did warn us. We were cautioned time and again about this pig in a poke, but although we could read … we didn’t heed. Much more important — the progressives among us in positions of power had to vote for it so they would know what was in it. Well, more and more of the future damage and verification of the big lie that is ObamaCare is coming out.
New Mexico Watchdog has just posted a piece on their site letting us know we were the victims of a giant scheme. For those voting for Obama in the last two elections; we hope you realize you are paying for your stupidity as your emptying wallet or purse hits you in your bounteous bottoms.
