Over the cliff we go. Wheeeeeee!!!!!

Here’s a companion piece to the post that Trail Dust just published, “Sending Us Over the Cliff.”

Daniel Halper reports for the Weekly Standard, Dec 28, 2012, that the POS issued yet another executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise.

One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is VPOS Joe Biden. According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he’ll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, including House Speaker John Boehner, also will receive a $900 bump in their annual salary, from $174,000 to 174,900.

Here’s the list of new wages, as attached to Obama’s executive order: “A new executive order has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning ‘on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,’” reports FedSmith.com. “The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%.”

That is why the “negotiations” over the “fiscal cliff” between the POS in the White House and the little POS in the House, John Boehner, are just elaborate kabuki theater or a charade.

To his credit, a Democratic member of Congress, John Barrow of Georgia, is moving to block the POS’s congressional pay increase.

Sending Us Over the Cliff

With every news outlet parroting the term, “Fiscal Cliff”, we see amazingly divergent opinions on what put us at this impasse. Conservatives and liberals are actively counting on fixing the blame on each other. But our trouble is nothing new. To understand it, simply look to African countries that have suffered leftist revolutions. The pattern is simple: once in power, take everything you can steal, and give it to your biggest supporters (e.g., take productive farms from their hard working owners, and give them to your gang of thugs, who will squander everything they touch, leaving the ground fallow and ruined).

A case in point is Wynton Hall’s article in Brietbart.com:

Singer Harry Belafonte tells Obama to imprison political opponents

Harry Belafonte

Separated at Birth: Belafonte (l); Red Skull of “Captain America” (r)

Harry Belafonte is an 85-year-old black has-been singer who made his career singing cheerful calypso “Banana Boat” songs.

Yesterday, Dec. 12, 2012, Belafonte appeared on MSNBC where he was asked by black racist Al Sharpton about the wrangling going on between the occupant in the White House and Republican House Speaker John Boehner over the budget and the looming fiscal cliff.

Sharpton: “You’ve fought for decades for some of ‘entitlements’ that the right wing wants to try and balance this budget, erh, balance the deficit off of. You look at this — Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. You’ve been an activist leader through Roosevelt…to Dr. King to Mandela to Obama. How do you view this and what is the challenge for those that are on the [battle] field today?”

Belafonte: “What I think is most attractive about this whole process is watching the political maturity of the American people…. The first question is whether Barack would even be elected. And after the turnout put him emphatically in the presidency, it’s interesting to watch his second term. Everybody really didn’t know what the game would be. But the American people in their maturity declared themselves fully, ‘We want what Barack Obama is talking about. We want the country going in that direction.”

Then, beginning at the 1:07 mark, Belafonte continues: “And what fascinates me is that in the face of millions of Americans expressing their desire, the whole political establishment defining its game, that there should be lingering infestation of really corrupt people who still try to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama. I don’t know what more they want.”

Beginning at the 1:45 mark, Belafonte then says: “The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and throw these guys in jail.”

To which Al Sharpton chuckles “He he!”

Yes.

You saw and heard it for yourself.

We have reached the low point in American politics where two black wealthy faux-socialists — Belafonte with a net worth of $28 million; Al Sharpton, a Baptist minister who mysteriously managed to accumulate a net worth of $5 million — openly call for a president (who was “supposedly” elected by 62,615,406 voters to a second term) to throw anyone who disagrees with him in jail, thereby junking every right guaranteed to the American people by the United States Constitution.

Harry Belafonte, you piece of shit. On November 6th, 59,142,004 Americans did NOT vote for your dictator idol. You don’t have enough jails and FEMA camps to jail all 59 millions 142 thousands of us!
