RINO’s and Dems join in cutting military benefits. Merry Christmas Scrooge


Onward we go with the Omnibus spending bill. Forget that within a month we will control Congress. By all means, let us “do” the NDAA as well and apparently screw the military. Perfect. Here is Hugh Hewitt and his take on it. But first look at the other pork present that the GOP is adding, but of course we cannot be fair to our military.We can only imagine what else we will find out because we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.

Congress Includes Land Grab Provisions in National Defense Authorization

Some lawmakers negotiated the inclusion of land grab provisions in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which will expand the already massive federal real state holdings.

The Senate aide told Breitbart News that highlights of the lands provision include:

  • 275,000 acres designated as new Wilderness Areas;
  • A Women’s History Museum;
  • Four new National Parks seven National Park studies for new parks to be;
  • 16 National Heritage extensions;
  • Three new Wild and Scenic River (WSR) designations and three new WSR studies that are expected to become new designations; and
  • Land entitlement for Sealaska, an Alaska Native Regional Corporation

Critics consider those provisions pork because they have nothing to do with defense or national security. The NDAA provides guidance for U.S. defense spending and policy. It is considered a “must-pass” legislation.

The public land provisions are included the text of the NDAA for fiscal 2015 under “TITLE XXX—NATURAL RESOURCES RELATED GENERAL PROVISIONS.”

Back to the military:

“Harry Reid screwed this up all year long and President Obama and now Republicans are going along with the screwing of the military. I do not know why we bother to win elections when we turn around and screw the people we campaign on,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt said on his show last night after an interview with Republican Senator Jim Inhofe.

Yesterday the lame-duck Senate released its detailed plan for the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation cuts the pay raise for the military, imposes caps on basic housing allowance and imposes co-pays on prescription drugs totaling $5 billion in overall cuts.

All of the pay and benefits trims were backed by the Pentagon and White House in an effort to slow the growth of personnel costs. The housing cuts and pharmacy co-pays were the final sticking points for lawmakers, with a compromise reached after nearly a month of behind-the-scenes fights.When asked to explain the reasoning behind the cuts, especially when the federal government funds so much nonsense, the best Inhofe could come up with in the interview was, “We need a bill.” Inhofe sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee

    Cutting hotel expenditures could be the first thing to go. Biden’s Hotel Bill for Turkey Visit: $625K / $1.5M Hotel Bill for President Obama’s One-Day Visit to Brussels/ Obama has vacationed a lot and his extravagances have cost taxpayers roughly $44 million/ Obama family’s African vacation was slated to cost between $60 million-$100 million/ Malia Obama’s 2012 spring break trip to Mexico that took $115,500 / and V. Jarrett, full SS protection, goes wherever she wants, anytime and anywhere paid by the American Tax Payers. What about the whole other staffers & associates, etc. that fly around (carbon foot-printing as they go – okay for them but not others). This Anti-American Regime only cuts what helps/benefits America & preserves personal liberties & freedoms. Business as usual, steal from the poor and keep people in the dark.

      You said it all. They all have not one wit of moral fiber to still go about all of this nonsense.

    It seems to me that the proper thing to do would be to pass a short term bill and then let the new Congress pass a longer term deal. But of course the Republican leadership remains intact and they do not give a damn about what the freshmen think, this is an attempt to stifle them before they can get control. I have said it before but this is sickening!

    Well, why don’t you guys demand we raise taxes to pay for more benefits? Or better yet, pass a new budget that the President could actually sign and still be able to sleep at night?

      Why doesn’t the senate send one over as required by law? Nothing for years.

        They don’t have to write a new budget. They can CR forever if they like. I don’t think you understand the “law.” The 74 budget resolution bill is a useless political law and does nothing to address anything we’re talking about here.

    Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty. Both parties are for growing government power over the people it was supposed to serve. Today, government is an end in itself.

      I am afraid Jim I am close to running out of steam. What is the point of this. Not even Fox news covers any of these proposed atrocities. There is simply no reason to pass all of this in a lame duck session. This is what we fought for this past election?

        I’m afraid it is going to take a serious crisis (much worse than 2008) for people to finally understand and react. They can either rebuild from the ashes or get use to being serfs. All we can do is keep trying to inform people of what is coming, while creating our own space where the impact is minimized.

        Well said Jim. Sadly, these types of posts get fewer and fewer hits. Now about Ferguson? that is a different story. The best kinds of pot, weed post I did has been getting thousands of hits for years!🙂
