In the face of Obama’s ongoing propaganda campaign to blame his failed policies and faltering economy on what amounts to a 2% budget cut, we’re seeing small pockets of excellent reporting on sequestration, and this includes the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler. Kessler’s already exposed Obama’s scare tactics as lies twice this week. Yesterday Kessler hit the trifecta with this report blowing a hole in Obama’s lie about Capitol Hill janitors receiving pay cuts:
Here’s President Obama during his news conference yesterday saying something that is absolutely, one-hundred percent false.
Starting tomorrow everybody here, all the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol. Now that Congress has left, somebody’s going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and throwing out the garbage. They’re going to have less pay. 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.
And once again Obama’s audacity of dishonest cynicism forced Kessler to award the president a full-boat of four bad-boy Pinnochios.
In this post, I lay out an air-tight case to CNN’s Ali Velshi that Obama’s economy was tanking all on its own long before sequester. Obama’s panicking over this fact, which is why he and his media are so desperate to spread the fear-mongering by way of blatant falsehoods and propaganda. If they can blame his failed economy on the GOP and cutting the size of government by just two-percent, that will be a major propaganda victory for the left.
Thankfully, Kessler and a few others are choosing to behave like reporters as opposed to State Stenographers. Let’s hope it stays that way and that they inspire others.
