Barack Obama lied about the sequester leading to Capitol janitor pay cuts

March 2, 2013

  First we had Barack Obama’s Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, tell a blatant lie about teachers who were supposedly being laid off due to sequestageddon and now it appears as if Barack Obama walked out of his meeting with Congressional leaders yesterday, looked the press corps and the American people in the eye, and lied about janitors who would be facing a pay cut due to the sequester.

This is what the president had to say:

“[A]ll the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol — now that Congress has left, somebody is going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and throwing out the garbage — they’re going to have less pay,” Mr. Obama said. “The janitors, the security guards, they just got a pay cut, and they’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.”

  That’s real? No, it isn’t…..

… is bullshit.

  Capitol Janitorial Superintendent sent a memo out to his employees informing them of the disinformation and told them not to listen to the media reports:

the current sequestration plan does NOT include ‘Reductions in Force’ or Furloughs. The pay and benefits of employees WILL NOT be impacted as per out current plan

Referring to the president as a “high ranking official,” Elias was adamant that staff wouldn’t see smaller paychecks and to not listen to media reports.

He wrote: “There was a specific mention in the news today by a high ranking official that said ‘The employees that clean and maintain the US Capitol will receive a cut in pay’ (not a specific quote but close to it). This is NOT true. Therefore, I request that you please notify all our employees about the importance of ignoring media reports

  I find it interesting that he decided to tell these people not to listen to the media reports when the media was simply parroting what Barack Obama told them in the first place–he should have told them not to listen to Barack Obama’s propaganda–but I suppose this is neither here nor there at this point.

  The bottom line is that Barack Obama lied in order to spread panic among the governed in an attempt to gain more support among the people to repeal the policy he recommended in the first place. 

  Barack Obama governs by crisis and through fear; he is trying to panic the American people into supporting an agenda they would otherwise oppose and this is just the latest example.

  The end justifies the means in his opinion and if that means lying to the American people than so be it, after all he doesn’t want to let this crisis go to waste…..

    What a shame. Those unemployed unable to find jobs shoveling shit finally had something to feel good about at the expense of those maintenance engineers purportedly taking a pay cut. Although those to whom floppy ears is appealing to will not see or hear any information counter to Obama’s lies and so may continue to take solace from others misfortune. While we chatter about how this poop head is dividing the country in so many ways what is often overlooked or unmentioned is how he is cultivating jealously between the haves and have nots, the in crowd and the outsiders, kinda like high school all over again. More and more he is acting like a spiteful spoiled bitch.

      Exactly, Barack Obama is governing by dividing Americans by race, class, and sexual orientation and still so many people don’t seem to see this.

    A little good news… Drudge reports that Zero’s poll numbers have dropped below 50. Between taking on Woodward and this hysteria he tried to create, folks may have received the message that the Emperor has few clothes.

      I saw that as well, perhaps the people are finally starting to realize what Obama is all about.

        Too late, unless it is somehow forced to resign. And yet it plots to run for a THIRD term?

    I had not heard about Obama declaring the janitors for the Capitol had just received a pay cut. I used to think Bill Clinton was a liar, but compared to Barack Obama, he’s a choir boy. Is there nothing Obama is willing to say or do?

      It really is unbelievable the way the lies flow so smoothly off of his lips, I guess we have to give him some credit for being such a masterful liar.

    The spoiled little brat didn’t get his way so he must lash out a someone. Obama is a pathetic excuse for a man, much less a president.

      That could have allot to do with it, he might be lashing out like a child because he didn’t get what he wanted.

    Be nice to do a “Trading Places” – the white house janitor take the prez role and the fake bhoo, be the janitor (probably be fired for not doing his job – could you even image him knowing or caring how to do a good job that beautified something!).
    He ‘is’ the enemy though, and he’s doing what he was ‘breed’ to do.

    Why does everyone keep implying B’HO is a he? It is an it. But it was a devout student of Alinsky, Cloward, Piven, and Marx. Thing is, it would appear that we too have studied those books, and we know what’s next.

      We know what he is up to but are there enough of us?

        Certainly hope so.
