THE CHICAGO WAY: White House using base-closure process to extort Nelson’s vote on ObamaCare...This is 'change we can believe in?'


How desperate has the White House become to get anything passed under the name of health-care reform? According to Michael Goldfarb’s source on Capitol Hill, the Obama administration has targeted the last remaining Democratic holdout, at least among moderates — and they’re willing to damage national security to extort his support. The White House has threatened Ben Nelson (D-NE) with the closure of Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska if he opposes Reid’s latest version, despite its status as the headquarters of US Strategic Command:

According to a Senate aide, the White House is now threatening to put Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force Base on the BRAC list if Nelson doesn’t fall into line.
Offutt Air Force Base employs some 10,000 military and federal employees in Southeastern Nebraska. As our source put it, this is a “naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and the White House to extort Nelson’s vote.” They are “threatening to close a base vital to national security for what?” asked the Senate staffer.

Indeed, Offutt is the headquarters for US Strategic Command, the successor to Strategic Air Command, and not by accident. STRATCOM was located in the middle of the country for strategic reasons. Its closure would be a massive blow to the economy of the state of Nebraska, but it would also be another example of this administration playing politics with our national security. READ MORE...

We will give one million dollars to MSNBC if they report this story...

  1. Unbelieveble---These mutt's are using our money, tax payer money, to bribe these corrupt politicians to go aganist the majority of the American's will and wishes.

    This whole den of thieves needs expunging and I don't give a damn on what mythology is used.
    A fight is simply a method to reaching a goal. The goal is to win the war aganist what these crooks have enforced upon us.

    Prostitutes have more honor then these whores.

    Question---Where will the money come from when the US is insolvent?
    Obama will have to deal with the Chinese. They will get paid one way or the other.
    If these dishonest scumbags are not replaced next year then the next Great Depression will clear the decks of most American taxpayers.

    But hey---as the liberals will glady say---we have government run health care---as the Americans who still have jobs will be taxed into oblivon.

    Too bad the doctors and the nurses all quit.

  2. Think of our country as a large seagoing vessel sailing in the waters of basic tranquility. Everyone aboard this giant ship has their job to do and for the most part we live in harmony with our fellow passengers. We all get along with each other as best we can and compared to other large ship's sailing the oceans we are renowned and celebrated as outdoing all the other ships in the water. Then one day we have a change of captains and he decides to change the course that the ship was previously sailing in. Everyone on the ship now notices that the new path that the captain has chosen has entered us into choppy waters and then the captain's mate yells out for all to hear we are heading for a gigantic iceburg. The captain gives the command to pick up speed and head right for it---------------this is exactly the blueprint of the Obama administration---sink this country as fast as possible----and replace it with a one world government ark where everyone becomes a drone to the ruling elite.

    The day is coming-----stay the course with the captain and hit the iceburg head on, or replace the captain before he does any more damage.
