Shut ‘R Down: Rescind the White House Occupancy Permit (Open Thread)

 

White_House_Washington - Copy

In keeping with this policy enacted by the Obama administration — [emphasis added]

The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some … They say they’re being forced out of private homes … because they sit on federal land.

The Spencers [aged 77 and 80] never expected to be forced out of their Lake Mead home, which they’ve owned since the 70s, but on Thursday, a park ranger said they had 24 hours to get out. —

We the People DEMAND

that the Obamas, and all other residents, be similarly evicted from the White House, which also sits on federal land. 

They have 24 hours to vacate.

You tell me why the family of Barack Obama should be treated any differently than the Spencers.  Let the Obamas go hang out at their favorite ice cream shop until the so-called president of all the people decides to NEGOTIATE, as has every other president down through history.

They’re not to decamp to Camp David, either, as that’s also situated on federal land.  Perhaps they can return to their home in Chicago for the interim.

Can any Democrat senator or representative, or any member of Obama’s administration, please explain why the Obamas are subject to different rules than the Spencers?

Is Obama a king or is he our employee?

He’s our employee and it’s time for him to get to work on the people’s business.

  1. Jay Carney has developed a classic sniff and twitch and adjusting of the mouth to make the itch not noticeable, but it is.

  2. Moody’s offers different view on debt limit

    snip………………….

    In a memo being circulated on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Moody’s Investors Service offers “answers to frequently asked questions” about the government shutdown, now in its second week, and the federal debt limit. President Obama has said that, unless Congress acts to raise the $16.7 trillion limit by next Thursday, the nation will be at risk of default.

    Not so, Moody’s says in the memo dated Oct. 7.

    ” We believe the government would continue to pay interest and principal on its debt even in the event that the debt limit is not raised, leaving its creditworthiness intact,” the memo says. “The debt limit restricts government expenditures to the amount of its incoming revenues; it does not prohibit the government from servicing its debt. There is no direct connection between the debt limit (actually the exhaustion of the Treasury’s extraordinary measures to raise funds) and a default.

    Exclusive: Immigration Agents Rip House Lawmakers Pushing Amnesty

    Snip…………….

    U.S. Immigration Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agents have expressed strong concerns over House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and other Representatives pushing for immigration legislation that would legalize the status of America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants.

    In a public statement that will be released Thursday morning but has been provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release, USCIS Council president Kenneth Palinkas warned that Goodlatte (pictured), House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-VA), House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) seem to be following the same pathway that Senate “Gang of Eight” members did, regarding how they are working on immigration legislation.

    “At every step, this administration places obstacles and roadblocks in front of our adjudication officers in their attempts to protect our nation’s security and the American taxpayer,” Palinkas said. “I documented these abuses on more than one occasion with the authors of Schumer-Rubio-Corker-Hoeven [S. 744] only to have them ignored.

    “I worry the House may be following a similar path. Media reports reveal that Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Chairman Paul Ryan, Congressman Luis Gutierrez, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are working to advance proposals to open citizenship benefits to the majority of those here illegally, in combination with proposals to expand visa programs.”

    Palinkas warned, too, that any group of “step-by-step” House immigration bills may be used as a tool by congressional leaders to get to a conference committee, at which point they would be combined with the Senate bill and sent to the president for his signature, and illegal immigrants would start getting amnesty. That is exactly what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Gang of Eight members Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and some Republicans have said they want to do.

    “These plans are being pursued before first reforming the very agency – USCIS – that will be charged with reviewing these tens of millions of green card, temporary visa and citizenship applications,” Palinkas said. “Advancing such measures without first confronting the widespread abuses at USCIS would be to invite disaster.”

  4. Libyan PM Ali Zeidan seized by armed men

    Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has been seized by armed men from a hotel in the capital, Tripoli.

    Mr Zeidan was taken at dawn “by gunmen to an unknown place for unknown reasons”, said a statement on the government’s website said.

    The details of the incident are unclear – sources say Mr Zeidan was arrested by an anti-crime department militia, but others that he had been kidnapped.

    On Tuesday he called on the West to help stop militancy in Libya.

    In an interview with the BBC on Monday, Mr Zeidan had said Libya was being used as a base to export weapons throughout the region.

    He called on the West to help stop militancy in Libya.

    Snip…………..

    On Monday, Libya demanded an explanation from the US ambassador over the capture of suspected al-Qaeda leader Anas al-Liby in Tripoli.

    Mr Liby was wanted over the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He was seized by US commandos in an early morning raid on Saturday.

    Our correspondent says that it is too soon to link Mr Zeidan’s seizure with the capture of Mr Liby.

    Last month Mr Zeidan visited the UK and appealed for British help to remove weapons from the country amid fears of increased arms smuggling to Syria.

    In April he urged Libyans to back their government in the face of “people who want to destabilise the country”.

    He also complained at that time of other attacks and “acts of sabotage” carried out by separate groups, against the interior ministry and national TV headquarters.

      Conclusion

      Lawmakers should address the financial challenges facing Social Security and Medicare as soon as possible. Taking action sooner rather than later will leave more options and more time available to phase in changes so that the public has adequate time to prepare.

  7. Let’s waste more of our money while Barry campaigns for the right to borrow and then spend, spend, spend even more: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/10/10/USPS-lets-move-stamps

    US Postal Service has now been forced to destroy the entire run of stamps based on Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative.

    That’s because three of the stamps showed children doing unsafe activities: one showed a child jumping cannonball-style into water; a second showed a child skateboarding without kneepads; a third showed a child doing a headstand without a helmet.

    The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition had not approved the stamps, but were only made aware of the problem after Nagisa Manabe, USPS marketing chief, asked Michelle Obama to take part in the ceremony inaugurating the initiative.”

    Why are such stupid ceremonies taking place, anyway? Are these people “essential”? If you ask me, the LEAST ESSENTIAL (in fact not even constitutional) person spending OUR MONEY, is the FLOTUS. She is NONESSENTIAL and should stay home (preferably in Chicago because the WH occupancy permit has been revoked) and bake HEALTHY cookies.

    The media feel oppressed. Ya think? Willing victims, in many cases, imho.

    “… “In the Obama administration’s Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press,” wrote Downie, now a journalism professor at Arizona State University. “The administration’s war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in The Washington Post’s investigation of Watergate.” …

    “There’s no question that sources are looking over their shoulders,” Michael Oreskes, the AP’s senior managing editor, told Downie. “Sources are more jittery and more standoffish, not just in national security reporting. A lot of skittishness is at the more routine level. The Obama administration has been extremely controlling and extremely resistant to journalistic intervention.”

    To bypass journalists, the White House developed its own network of websites, social media and even created an online newscast to dispense favorable information and images. In some cases, the White House produces videos of the president’s meetings with major figures that were never listed on his public schedule. Instead, they were kept secret – a departure from past administrations, the report noted. …”

    • She is an amazing person. Can you imagine that they are putting a fatwa on her, just like with Rushdie? That’s your “religion of peace” for you.

    The difference between her getting a Nobel Peace Prize & Obama

    is she deserves one. Obama is many things… but peaceful is not
    among them.

    • They destroyed the entire cachet of the prize when they fell all over themselves to foist a wholly undeserved one on Barry.

    • I’m so uneducated! Buchanan names countries that I never heard of! Transnistria and Abkhazia? Oy! Of course, the UN and the globalists would like nothing better than to see the United States break up into numerous small (and much less powerful, less influential) nations. It would be great, however, to see CA break up, so long as we have two states instead of a separate country within our country. The progressives and the illegals have too much control over CA electoral votes and the entire state has too much influence over national elections.

    • In his world, is economic treason, whatever that is, worse than usurpation? This is just more of their violent, hateful rhetoric. Who’s holding the country hostage? The House is passing bill after bill after bill to pay the bills and end the shutdown. It’s Obama and his tools in the DemoncRAT party who are holding up and obstructing everything. It’s the SOLE CONSTITUTIONAL prerogative of the House of Representatives to pass spending bills and decide WHAT is funded and what is not.

        And THANK GOD for our Constitution.

        • While it lasts. They’re working on “fixing” it because, you know, it’s outdated. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_5A-2Yn0o2wg/TORUNOUn9bI/AAAAAAAADbw/WD5hE2aiFmo/s1600/Lieutenant-Worf-star-trek-the-next-generation-9406774-1694-2560.jpg

          “Well, America: if you thought the people behind the Common Core couldn’t possibly be any more moronic or tone deaf, you were wrong.

          A Common Core worksheet handed out this year in a sixth-grade history class in Bryant, Ark. required students to ditch two amendments from the Bill of Rights. …

          The assignment’s instructions, which include hideous grammatical errors such as the use of the plural pronouns “they” and “their” to refer to the singular noun “government,” tell students that “the government of United States is currently revisiting” the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

          Unknown federal officials “have determined” that the Bill of Rights “is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer,” the instructions say.

          Consequently, the sixth-graders were asked to “participate on the National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force.” They were required to “omit two and add two amendments to the Bill of Rights.”

          At least one local parent is livid …”

          You just know that the “correct” answer to which amendments to trash are the Second and the Tenth. I wonder what the teacher would say if the kid wanted to add an amendment restoring slavery and then another making brainwashing school children with progressive ideology a capital offense? But I bet the “correct” answer to the new amendments would be, perhaps, making a RIGHT to health care and a RIGHT to a job that pays a “living wage.” Ya think?
