    These Tea party thugs are shameless, unpatriotic un- American, and treasonous. They are the current major threat to all of us globally, today.

    So the WashPo poll shows that Americans think Republicans suck a little more than Dem’s. But seriously – it looks to me like the ‘both sides are to blame’ meme has stuck.

    We see traitorous imbeciles. The American people see the ‘logic’ of David Gregory.

    I want to cry.

      I wouldn’t put too much weight into one poll. The only thing that matters are the election results. I’m actually more interested in the congressional ballot polls which so far are looking good for the democrats.

        I agree completely. It’s about the individual races. We’re pushing back. I didn’t like those approval/disapproval numbers for the Dem’s on this.

      I saw there was something acting funny because you had repeated posts with no content and that was puzzling. Figured you were busy with work or something came up so I threw up a post.

    The Treasury Department maintains that it has no ability to pick and choose which bills to pay if it’s short of cash. According to the agency’s inspector general, its computer systems are designed to “make each payment in the order it comes due.” Full stop.

    Under this view, if Congress fails to lift the debt ceiling, the U.S. government will only have money to cover about 65 percent of its bills. Some payments will simply fail to clear. Perhaps a payment to a defense contractor comes up short. Maybe a Social Security check bounces. Maybe an interest payment to bondholders fails.

    That last possibility is the most worrisome. If the U.S. government misses a payment to bondholders, the consequences could be severe. “A default would be unprecedented and has the potential to be catastrophic,” warns Treasury. “Credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet, U.S. interest rates could skyrocket, the negative spillovers could reverberate around the world, and there might be a financial crisis and recession that could echo the events of 2008 or worse.”

    Other financial analysts agree. A missed debt payment could cause the entire financial system to seize up. “Let us be perfectly clear,” warns a note from RBC Capital Markets, “crossing the debt ceiling would be catastrophic.”

    Wa post-

    You see ? Whatever comes first! That means it would need a act of congress to not default on bond holders.
    That’s what boners means, when he says no default. That’s the bill he will bring to floor, pay interest first and reprogram computers.
    I know where going on!

    • 31 theo67
      October 7, 2013 at 6:36 pm

      That’s not something that can happen overnight, or even in the few days before default. If that’s his plan, then it’s a very stupid and dangerous one.

    I’m so damn disgusted with this Tea Party Shutdown. It’s so damn depressing and maddening. Good thing I have my new grandbabe as a joyful diversion. We’re all thrilled with all the reporting on her wonderfulness——except maybe my little grandson who was here yesterday. I excitedly said, “Braden, come here. I want to show you a picture of your new cousin!” He took a look at the adorable new wee one on my computer and didn’t seem to be overly impressed, sorta dismissively said, “She’s just a baby.” Guess the hours old just a baby didn’t look like she was going to be much good for playing cars and trucks and trains with him any time soon :)

          You actually reminded me of a surprising lesson I learned when I had my only offspring – it was as if *I* ceased to exist. Not kidding, nobody asked how I was anymore. In fact, especially in the baby stage, I don’t think they even saw me, nor did friends remember me at Christmas as was their wont previously. Quite an eye-opening experience. :grin:

      Most baby boomers are like me – they spent 30 years of their lives buried in debt – and at a time when interest rates rose to 18%. It was my parents generation who hated debt – they saw their parents suffer the depression 1929-1939

      So now I have just got out of debt, have some retirement savings which the GOP are about to plunder – big time. Any baby boomer who supports the GOP is not thinking with their brain.

        Hey Bob, here is a comment I posted in response to one of your tweets to the DOJ:

        Thanks Bob for all your tweets alerting the DOJ about people threatening to do great harm to this country. While you are it, you may want to remind the DOJ, Democratic leaders in Congress and of course WE the people, about Section 3, of the 14th Amendment which applies to a great many Republicans in Congress, including John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell. Here is what Section 3 of the 14th Amendment says:

        “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United Sates, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof….”

        Personally, I think Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and all the teabag members of Congress who have instigated the shut down the government and are refusing to honor their constitutional obligation to pay the debts of the United States, as is required by both Article I, Section 8, and Section 4, of the 14th Amendment, are engaged in insurrection and rebellion against the Constitution and should be thrown out of office. The same goes for Congressional leaders who are giving them “aid and comfort.”

      • October 7, 2013 at 7:59 pm

        Agree, nath. And, thank hyou for your insights on Section 3 of the 14th. I’m going to persist in directing messages to the DoJ, along these lines, and will continue to cc various folk at the White House and in Congress.

        As you and everyone here knows, I’m not a lawyer. But, I can read and can analyze risk and harm quite well. These folk are doing real harm, every second that they threaten in any way the good faith and credit of the United States of America.

        They have to be stopped. Hopefully, the DoJ will act before calamity hits the global economy.

We all must all join you in pushing back hard against these despicable people who are doing real harm to innocent people simply because the majority of us voted to elect and re-elect, President Obama. Since I don’t twit, I will send e -mails, highlighting your message, to the DoJ, my two U.S. Senators, and my Representative. My local paper is aright wing rag.

    Okay, here comes my crazy analysis. :) I don’t think we actually reach the debt ceiling on the 17th, or perhaps what I should say is the government won’t be out of money. I remember seeing Lew on a financial show and he said we’d reach the debt ceiling in early November. I also recall him saying recently that if the Republicans refused to raise the debt ceiling he would perhaps be forced to break the law.

    My interpretation: the government will not be out of money, the law just forbids disbursing funds above the present ceiling. If Lew pays all the bills anyway, what are the Republicans going to say…we’re going to lock Lew up and impeach Obama because they didn’t let the country go into default? Does this plausible to anyone else?

            I don’t agree. To my understanding, the 14th Amendment allows payment of debts incurred in the event of insurrection. The Insurrection Act defines insurrection as a violent rebellion that requires the President to employ troops. Of course, there have been a million laws written to the North and South of both, so anything is possible.

            • October 7, 2013 at 8:02 pm

              The language of the 14th is much broader than that, FayPax.

              October 7, 2013 at 10:54 pm

              FayPax, here is exactly what Section 4, of the 14th Amendment says:

              “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.”

              The plain reading of this amendment clearly says that all U.S. “public debt, ” which has been “authorized by law”… “shall not be questioned.” The only the debts exempted are debts incurred in aiding insurrection/rebellion or claims about the loss as a result of the freeing of slaves. I am not familiar with the “Insurrection Act” you are referencing, but I would appreciate getting more information from you about it.

              My only reservation is that I don’t see how the President can legally invoke the 14th Amendment to defy Congress. Section 5 of the 14th Amendment clearly states: “The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions” of the Amendment. No where in the Amendment is the President given power to enforce Sections 1-4 of the 14th Amendment without Congressional authorization.

              • October 8, 2013 at 6:12 am

                Thanks Nath. Sometimes, I am not as clear as I should be. It isn’t that I disagree with you or Bob, for I am certain both of you are far more knowledgeable than I, but I tend to rely more on how I believe the Constitution will be interpreted by our activist Supreme Court. These justices have ignored precedent, Congress’s duty to regulate and secure the economic welfare of the nation, and the Constitution in favor of a majority ideology that is entrenched in the Articles of Confederation.

                Revisiting their debate over the healthcare law, I found it interesting that they deemed the Merchant Marines Mandate “too old and outdated to be applicable today”, but when it came to immigration had no problem reaching all the way back to the caverns of abolitionists to fashion an interpretation.

                In determining what the President’s response should be, I think many forget how limited his power actually is. Legislating is the province of Congress. Despite the clamor for the President to act, or influence, the truth is, under the Constitution that is not his duty. It is to enforce the laws enacted by Congress, as you so clearly point out.

                The 14th Amendment was enacted because of the Civil War and slavery, which gave way to insurrection. I would expect this “state’s right” Supreme Court to interpret it with that in mind.

                The Insurrection Act is what President’s use when they call out the National Guard. My “guess” (can’t remember and too lazy to look it up) is the Act was an offshoot of the 14th Amendment. It would have been a right assumed during the Rodney King riots, Katrina and Operation Wall Street…events where masses of people express discontent.

    Thanks for this Isonprize. I had to change June 2013 to June 2012 because SCOTUS upheld ObamaCare in 2012 not 2013.

    IDIOTS! So the GOP Senators are gonna “filibuster” giving furloughed workers backpay…wow. That’s fine, but umm…optics.

    Republicans to block quick passage of back-pay bill

    “I think it’s really premature to be dealing with that until we resolve the underlying problem,” said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas. “We’ve offered a number of bills to try to alleviate some of the hardship and they’ve been swatted down out of hand.”

    Cornyn said he didn’t expect Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring it to the floor because of GOP objections.

    “There is no sense of urgency for us to do it. The federal government is shut down,” said Sen. Richard Burr, a Republican of North Carolina who supports providing back pay but not until the government has reopened. “I think it’s very legitimate to take our time on this and hopefully Senator Reid will open it up for amendments and we can see how it ends up.”

    Cornyn said if Democrats put the bill on the floor Republicans would not be okay with legislative shortcuts to pass it – such as a voice vote or unanimous consent agreement.

    Asked if the bill should be subject to amendments and filibusters – procedures that could delay passage for several days – Cornyn said, “yeah, we ought to legislate.”

    Don’t know if this makes ANY sense:

    I have no training in law whatsoever so please consider the source of this suggestion.

    instead of POTUS violating the debit ceiling so that the extremists can use that as a justification to impeach him, I have a tentative suggestion.

    I don’t know if it is possible to go after the constitutionality of existence of the debit ceiling its self and permanently nullify its existence through litigation.

    is it possible for the White House or DOJ to urgently sue (in DC Federal court or wherever) to demand that the debit ceiling be ruled unconstitutional?

    Basis for unconstitutionality would be because of the threat it posses to the “full faith and credit” of the government;

    if it is declared unconstitutional then the debit ceiling will become permanently moot as a tool for this extremist congress and others that follow.

    Nullification of the debit ceiling would eliminate any future blackmail. result would be like permanently taking matches from the hands of legislative arsonist.

    please help out with making this concise, legal and operational

      There was an article about a week ago reporting on the fact that PB O had already asked the DOJ I trhink for the last to do analysis of use of the 14th amendment. The DOJ will not reveal the contents of their analysis through FOIA because it is a work LAWYER/CLIENT work
