Good morning! Today, on The Meter we will discuss the looming sequestration crisis as the March 1 deadline approaches. 85 billion in budget cuts are threatening to have an impact on jobs and the economy. As republicans demand more cuts, the President warns of police, air traffic controllers, and first responders losing their jobs! Fear tactic or fact? Please join us at 10 AM. The call in number is 714-242-6214. Your input is essential!
Matt and Jamie are back. Tonight's episode will cover the upcoming sequestration and the media hype surrounding the relatively small cuts. Also covered will be the (il)legitimacy of borders and immigration laws and some exciting new technologies on the horizon. We will also take your calls.
This week I will focus on the Budget, thew so called Sequestration effects, Congress and the President. Where are they heading? Will they actually sit down and talk?
An update on our attempts to work with Gun Control Lobbiests, The NRA and both sides of the aisile.
News, Society and the Medias' role in it all!
This and more Every Friday!
It's been a busy week, folks. The government--yep, we're using a collective term there cuz they're ALL dysfunctional--sits on the royal governing throne ... & doesn't govern. And what happens? We fall in a sinkhole.
But then, a sinkhole comes about in Florida & sadly, a man loses his life because he literally dropped into it. His only "crime" was being in bed when this happened. Was it an "act of God?" An act of man vs nature? Do you realize how many of these happen in any given year? There have already been no less than nine in the US alone this year. And it's only early March.
Hypothetical sinkhole vs literal sinkhole.
And an elderly woman collapses in an independent living facility. A nurse calls 911 but after being instructed to perform CPR, she refuses, saying the facility's "policy" doesn't allow her to do so. She can only call and stay with the downed individual until the emergency personnel arrives.
What?! This is an ethical sinkhole. And someone done fell in deep.
It's been a busy few weeks in the news, folks. Join Debbie Barth and Linda Alexander, the Three Wise Girls, as we talk about Sequestration, Sinkholes, & CPR ... & whatever else shows up on the radar. Join us in the chat room or call in at 347-994-3835, 1:30 PM EST, for a fast-&-furious 30 minutes of reality internet radio. As usual, we're shootin' from the hip, & we never know exactly what we'll say, except to say we definitely have an opinion. We're sure you do, too. Won't you join us?

NACUBO'S LIZ CLARK DIRECTOR OF CONGRESSIONAL AFFAIRS ON HOW THE SEQUESTRATION IMPACTS UNIVERSITIES ON THE CAMPUS LEVEL BEYOND AID TO STUDENTS AND GIVES AN UPDATE ON THE OUTLOOK ON THE HILL.
In the following podcast, Pete Ragone, a Principal with SC&H Group, discusses the key shifts happening in the government-contracting marketplace – where many challenges and opportunities exist in this new post-sequestration era.
As the world has set its own course as we have been planning other things, some believe that the 2016 election will be more focused on foreign policy and defense issues that any of the candidates thought would be the case at the end of last year.
What will be the above-the-fold topics? The baseline was set by the '16 budget battle last year and the winding down and a post-mortum on the sequestration gambit of the last couple of years.
As proxies in the emerging discussion, to join the old bulls on the Hill, are there emerging new leaders on defense issues elected in the '14 cycle?
Where do declared or expected candidates for President for both parties stand on policy and present operations?
To discuss this and more in the foreign policy and defense arena will be returning guest, Mackenzie Eaglen,
Mackenzie is a resident fellow in the Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, where she works on defense strategy, defense budgets, and military readiness.
She has worked on defense issues in the House of Representatives and Senate and at the Pentagon in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and on the Joint Staff. In 2014, Eaglen served as a staff member of the congressionally mandated National Defense Panel, a bipartisan, blue-ribbon commission established to assess US defense interests and strategic objectives. This followed Eaglen’s previous work as a staff member for the 2010 congressionally mandated bipartisan Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel, also established to assess the Pentagon’s major defense strategy. A prolific writer on defense-related issues, she has also testified before Congress.
She has an M.A. from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and a B.A. from Mercer University.
Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant

Bird Flu is back with outbreaks in Iowa and Minnesota. New incident brewing in Oregon between the American people and the Bureau of Land Management. Will these clashes become more frequent? Is this a sign that the American people are getting fed up with the bullies? Organization of American States recently held a meeting in South America on hemispheric cooperation on police training, police management, social transformations, and community policing. Wood stoves are under fire. We discuss carbon sequestration and the future of gardening. Duke University has a new study on Global Warming. The USDA has a new "climate mitigation" plan. Obama has a new push for Fast Track Authority and so-called "Free-Trade" agreements. We lay out some details from the investment chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership with an emphasis on international tribunals and schemes which are connected with the World Bank.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner made some utterances today regarding the imminent and fast-approaching SEQUESTRATION. . The "Boner" iterated that things would be pretty bleak under that scenario and no one has really had to experience it before - the point being, it's not the time to undergo the unknowable and highly likely unbearable.
