Another Leak: Obama is Fabricating the “Pain” of Sequester

March 11, 2013

Earlier this week, we reported that an email leak revealed what we all had been saying: Obama was fabricating the “pain” of sequester to score brownie points. He’s giving hundreds of millions to Egypt while canceling White House tours. This isn’t a budget problem… this is a “Obama being a jerk” problem. And it’s backfiring.

Now another government official has leaked information that federal parks are trying to make any and all cuts as visible as possible to inflate the “pain” that tourists see. The reason? Political motivation. Here’s a general rule of thumb: whenever the government is trying to mislead you, it’s because they want more power, and your interests are not their goal. This is no exception.

From the report: “A U.S. park ranger, who did not wish to be identified, told that supervisors within the National Park Service overruled plans to deal with the budget cuts in a way that would have had minimal impact on the public. Instead, the source said, park staff were told to cancel special events and cut “interpretation services” — the talks, tours and other education services provided by local park rangers. “Apparently, they want the public to feel the pain,” the ranger said.”

As we wrote about the other leak, this essentially proves exactly what we were saying all along:

This is absolutely ludicrous, but proves what we’ve been saying all along. The slight cut in increased spending isn’t going to break the economy, it isn’t going to end America, and the doomsday predictions were a pure lie. DC knows this, so their response to having their bluff called is more of the same — they’re trying to lie to cover up the other lies.

Whenever a politician lies, it’s because he’s trying to increase his own power and wants to do it in a way that is going to hurt you. You’re being betrayed by the psychopaths once again, and most of the media is fine with allowing it to happen without a word. How pathetic. Make sure to spread the word on your own Facebook and Twitter accounts to make up for the censorship and bias.
