Hood-Wink, Redirect, Spend…Repeat

You have got to be kidding me.
CBS just posted the headline “Al Qaeda Planning Holiday Attacks in West”. Drudge has it dead center in the middle of his page.
Don’t you find it incredibly coincidental that a big, scary story like this, magically materializes, mere moments after the Democrat-controlled Senate pushed through a vote on the Omnibus bill.
Actually, it’s not really big news, because we all know that Al Qaeda and all the other Islamic terrorists are ALWAYS planning to hit the West. That’s what terrorism is all about…terror. Creating fear, uncertainty, and doubt is the stock and trade of the terrorist.
Is Obama adding to that fear, uncertainty, and doubt as the Democrats are in an insane dash to force the Omnibus bill into law, before the whole crew goes on the Christmas break. Yes, I did say Christmas. Why in the world didn’t they work on the budget last summer and fall, like they were supposed to? They had the majority in Congress and were responsible for next year’s budget. The rats in Congress didn’t lift a finger on the budget, because they knew the bloodbath would have been even bigger in the November elections.
I take that back. They apparently were working on something. A nearly 2000 page bill, with a reported 3000 to 6000 earmarks, that nobody has read. Obviously, it is chocked full of new spending or they wouldn’t be pushing so hard to get it done.
Now there is no way to prove that the Obama regime had anything to do with the headline. Rolling out a “terrorist” story would be a classic Obama ploy and I’ve covered the topic before in “Obama’s New Industry…Crisis”.
My understanding is that Obama has until Saturday evening, to pass the bill. Otherwise, government operations will be shut down. Why not redirect everybody’s attention to the much more emotion-tinged possibility of a major terror attack and off of the completely blatant trillion-dollar plus spending bill, poke in the eye to Americans?
Nobody was thinking about terrorism, all day, and then all of the sudden…
So what’s next?
This terrorist story might only last a day or two. What other horrific disasters could possibly befall the American people, between now and Saturday?
Republicans certainly better get religion by January, because this ship we call America, can’t take much more of this abuse.
