If you were ever in doubt about the national press media being biased

then the Congressional Benghazi hearings this past week should have opened

your eyes. The press is supposed to be our watchdog holding our government

accountable. Unfortunately for us, they have become an arm of the

Democrat party. This is a gross violation of the “Freedom of the Press” as the

founding fathers envisioned when they wrote the Bill of Rights to the

Constitution. However, with this crowd in power, the “Constitution be

Damned!”.

The Press is solely responsible for Obama being President and for the

failure of his policies because they never vetted him or questioned the

soundness of his policies. Furthermore, the Press is accountable for the

Benghazi “cover up”. Why? Because it is their job to investigate and inform the

public as to what the government is doing in their name.

It was obvious to anyone with common sense, that, from the beginning,

Benghazi was a terrorist attack and yet the press went along with the narrative

that an unseen video caused a spontaneous uprising. Yeah, blame anything

and anyone except the Muslim jihadists. (The video maker was jailed in order

to take the blame for an amateurish video that was seen by no one of any

consequence).

How could a “free press” not question the veracity of  U.N. Ambassador

Susan Rice when she went on five  Sunday talk shows spouting the boldface

lie about a fictitious video. And, who could believe Secretary of State Hillary

Clinton testifying in a Congressional hearing saying about Benghazi, …”what

does it matter?”.  And, what was President Obama thinking when he lied to the

United Nations two weeks later claiming we had, ..”nothing to do with that

video”.

September 11, 2013, when the American consulate was attacked in

Benghazi, Libya, fell in the middle of the 2013,  Presidential campaign.

President Obama, running for re-election, was bragging how he had

decimated Al Qaeda and Bin Laden was dead. Now, to avoid embarrassment

and ruin his chances for re-election, Obama lied, not only to the American

people, but to the whole world  that Benghazi was not attacked by an affiliate

of Al Qaeda but was due to a video ridiculing the prophet Mohammad thereby

causing a “spontaneous” riot and attack on our embassy personnel.

Weeks earlier, the British Ambassador was attacked and The Prime

Minister ordered the English to pull out and come home. At the same time,

our Ambassador to Libya was requesting more security for the American

embassy. He was denied by Secretary of State Clinton’s office more than once.

The State Department were derelict in their duty to protect our people. Why

were we allowed to stay in Libya with no added security? Our people should

have been ordered back to the States.

On the evening of September 11, the attack on Benghazi was known by all

in the administration. Calls for help were coming into the White House all

night long. All military rescue assets were told to “stand down”. Why? This is

incomprehensible. Americans never deny a call for help. As a consequence

four brave Americans were slaughtered including our Ambassador. This

Administration has blood on their hands. And, so does our national media.

Without an independent and free press to hold our politicians

accountable we are no better than a banana republic. The press have become

co-conspirators in lying to the American people. An omission is as bad as a

lie. Media outlets have omitted too many of Obama’s failures. Why? Are they

afraid of being called “racists” because they dare to tell the truth about

Obama?

“The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”, Thomas Jefferson.

This is the main reason the LEFT wants to ban guns. In the words of an infamous tyrant: “To conquer a nation first disarm its citizens”, Adolf Hitler. That is the main goal of the Left. Don’t doubt it.

The founding fathers included the second amendment to the Bill of Rights of  the Constitution so that an armed citizenry would be able to defend themselves against a tyrannical government and to take the country back if need be. They would want every household to have an AR-15 or AK-47 type weapon to protect the nation. Guns for personal self-defense and hunting come next. “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it”, Thomas Jefferson.

The “we need more gun control” mantra of the Left is just that — mantra. Meaningless words to gender emotional response from the great uninformed. The Left’s dumbing down of  America by not teaching American history in our schools is working. How many Americans know our history and the real story of our founding fathers and the writing of the Constitution?

Guns do not kill people – people kill people. Mass murderers would use other means such as dynamite, fire, knives, hammers and such, IF there were no guns. Do we ban cars because of vehicular  homicides? Do we ban hammers or knives if used as a murder weapon? (More people are murdered by hammers and knives than by guns). The “ban guns” position is a bogus argument. The Left knows this but they want to appeal to the emotions of  a misinformed public to fire up controversy in order to have a position to show that they are doing something to make everyone “feel” better and safer. When in reality, in the words of Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association (NRA), …“the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is by a good guy with a gun”.

There are more untold stories of people being saved because of their legitimate right to protect themselves with a firearm than of the stories of murderers and the mayhem they cause. But, have you seen any of these stories reported by the media? NO! Why? Because it does not fit their anti-gun agenda.

How about the mother in Georgia who saved herself and her 9-year-old twins hiding in the upstairs bedroom closet crawl space from an intruder who broke into the house and was about to attack them. She shot her .38 caliber pistol that her husband had taught her to use just days before at a shooting range and hit the perpetrator five out of six shots while talking to her husband on her cell phone with 911 listening in.  She saved herself and her children. Her husband calls her a hero. The intruder was taken to a hospital for his wounds and is now in jail.

There is no way any law can prevent a crazed gunman from attacking innocents. However, there are preventative measures that can be taken. The massacre of innocent children in the Sandy Hooks Elementary School shootings in Newton, Connecticut, could have been prevented or have encountered fewer casualties had there been anyone with a firearm on the campus.

Teachers or staff can be trained by police, the military or the NRA to handle and fire a gun in order to protect the children and themselves. Armed guards; either police, retired police or military personnel, could also be used in every school. (In Israel, every school teacher is armed).

In Maricopa County, Arizona, America’s favorite Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, is using his volunteer Posse to patrol all the schools, from the outside, under his jurisdiction at no cost to the county. It would be up to the different school boards to initiate having armed personnel on campus. Many schools around the country already have armed security on campus.

The discussion should be on saving lives NOT in banning guns. It is unfortunate that the President and the Democrats are bent on banning guns, banning bullets, and banning magazines, but not on banning crime. How does punishing the legitimate gun owner prevent gun crime? Punish the criminal who uses a gun to commit a crime with the laws already on the books. Punish the government officials responsible for “Fast & Furious”, the selling of guns to Mexican drug cartels.

The Second Amendment guarantees your right to own any gun (including AK-47s & AR-15s), to have as much ammunition as you wish, and to have any size magazine you need. High capacity  magazines are especially helpful when practicing gun skills at a shooting range. An hours’ worth of shooting can consist of firing hundreds of rounds. The larger magazines reduce the time for reloading. Plus, they are vital in self-defense situations especially when confronted by several armed attackers.

Remember this, magazines do NOT come loaded with ammo. You have to manually place each bullet into the magazine up to its capacity. They are not, as some misinformed anti-gun folks think, magazines fully loaded with ammo you use and then throw away. They are used over and over again by simply inserting  the required amount of  ammo (bullets) into the magazine.

Why are crime rates down in States that have concealed carry laws? Because criminals will think twice about breaking in or attacking anyone for fear they may encounter a gun owner. Get a gun, learn how to use it, and keep prepared. The life you save may be your own. Encourage the local school boards to protect our children with trained gun-toting personnel. The gun is only a tool and like most tools, in the hands of experienced users, is a valuable asset. To own and have guns is our Constitutional right and this right …”shall not be infringed”.

In the wake of another mass shooting that slaughtered little innocent children this past weekend, it is time to put political correctness aside and to install preventative defenses in all of our schools from elementary to university. Let’s face it. We cannot prevent these types of incidents from happening but we can reduce the fatalities by being prepared. How do we do this? By instructing and training  school officials in the handling and correct procedures for using a firearm.

In the Connecticut school shootings the Principal and the school Psychologist both rushed the shooter and were gunned down. IF, just one of them had a weapon the outcome might have been different.

Why do you think these loons pick on schools?  Because they know it is a gun-free zone. We need, not only, to arm the teachers but also to have armed security guards to prevent unauthorized intruders from gaining access.

The cry for “gun control” is NOT the answer. Then no one would be safe. Goofy mayors like Bloomberg of New York just don’t get it. Every household should have an AK-47. Why? That’s the way our founding fathers intended. The primary purpose of the Second Amendment to the Constitution is for an armed citizenry to protect themselves against a corrupt and dictatorial government and to take our government back if need be.  Self-defense and hunting are secondary purposes for the amendment. This is the main reason the Left wants to ban guns.

Let’s protect our innocent children and give them a safe and secure environment away from home. Let us arm our schools. In Israel every teacher has a machine gun in their classroom to protect the children. Time for us to do the same.

As an aside, we hear the cry of “who needs that much ammunition”? If you are a target shooter, as most gun owners are, it takes a lot of ammunition to perfect your shooting skills. An hour’s worth of shooting at targets can easily use up to 100 rounds of ammunition.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) as well as local police associations, not to mention the military,  could all be utilized to do the necessary training.

Our cherished children deserve better.

A month and a half  after the disgraceful tragedy in Benghazi, the Obama administration still refuses to  come clean not only with the American people but also with the families of  the brave men who were slaughtered in  the American Consulate compound by Islamic terrorists, including our  Ambassador to Libya, John Christopher (Chris) Stevens, on September 11, 2012.

Forget about the so-called e-mails that the administration keeps referring too because they are meaningless when it comes to communications with the situation room in the white house. Why? Because these were unclassified messages. There were precedence designated classified communications  called FLASH (Z) that went out immediately when the consulate was attacked.

FLASH (Z) is a precedence reserved for initial enemy contact messages or operational combat messages of extreme urgency. A five-nation joint military communications-electronics organization consisting of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, the Combined Communications Electronics Board (CCEB) uses this system. These messages are to be handled as fast as humanly possible, ahead of all other messages, with in-station handling time not to exceed ten minutes.

The White House knew immediately about the organized attack. The attack lasted for six hours. For all those hours the administration did nothing. We had military assets in Italy and in the Mediterranean Sea that could have intervened and saved our people. Why was no action taken?

Our military was on ready alert waiting for the word to go. It never came. Why? Why was our ambassador, who is the President’s representative representing the U.S., and the the others left at the mercy of  Muslim barbarians.

To add insult to injury, the whole White House administration is sent out to lie about an unseen, so-called anti-Islamic, video as being the cause of a “demonstration gone wild”. The President used the “video lie” six times in his address to the United Nations two weeks after the attack. What outrageous incompetency and gutless actions. These are treasonous acts.

An unmanned drone was sent out taking video pictures during the attack which were transmitted in real time to the Situation Room in the White House. The entire administration was watching and still doing absolutely nothing. This is criminal not to mention bordering on the macabre.

What explanations could anyone come up with as to why no action was taken to save our people. They could have been rescued. What is the political advantage to Obama for acting like a coward instead of a hero? This makes absolutely no sense.

The President, the Secretary of State, the Ambassador to the U.N., and the White House press secretary should all resign. There is no excuse or explanation for their callous abandoning of our fellow Americans. The first duty of the President is to protect the people. He has failed his duty. The first duty of the military is that we leave no one behind.

We, the American people, have all been lied to by this administration and the entire Democrat party. Will we ever see impeachment proceedings?

New unemployment figures indicate that unemployment has “dropped” to 8.2 per cent.  The month before President Obama’s inaugural, unemployment was at 7.5 per cent. A month after Obama took office unemployment went to 8.3 per cent. Any fourth grader can see that a difference from 8.3 to 8.2 per cent is only a drop of o.1 per cent. In other words unemployment has not improved much in the three years this administration has been in power. Is this “trending in the right direction” or off the cliff?

As a matter of fact, up until a few months ago, the average unemployment was at a media spun 9.5 per cent but in actuality as high as 15 per cent (among Blacks it has hovered around 16 per cent). And what about the twenty million jobs that have been lost under the Obama regime? Hyping a 200,000 increase in the job market, last month, as an economic turn around is like adding one grain of sand to the sea and calling it an expansion of the world’s oceans.

In Obama’s first year in office he controlled the entire government: both houses of Congress and the White House. But, what did he do with it? NOTHING. Did he do anything to increase jobs like lowering taxes, reducing government regulations and other known economic triggers to boost the economy? NO.  He rammed socialized government health  care down our throats without anyone knowing what was in the legislation (a Saul Alinsky rule to take over health care in order to control the people). Not one job was created. But, many were lost for good. Is this “trending in right direction”?

Obama blames (besides Bush) Wall Street for our economic woes. How can this be when it was Obama voting for TARP, under Bush, while still a Senator, and later passing the so-called “stimulus package” that went to his largest contributors on Wall Street as a bail-out. Obama and Wall Street are like Siamese twins — inseparable. Wall Street insiders are part of his Cabinet as referenced by his Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, a past president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Come on Barry, speak the truth.

Of course we all know (the cat’s out-of-the-bag Barack) that it was the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 , under then president Jimmy Carter, forcing banks to do away with red-lining, under threat by Jesse Jackson and other racists pimps, to force banks to lend to minorities to buy houses they could not afford, backed by the government using Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, under the “scrutiny” of  Senator Chris Dodd, former chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and Congressman Barney Frank former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee (who both should be in jail). An example of   “letting the fox  guard the hen house”. Are we “trending right” or heading off the cliff?

The banks in turn, to get rid of these toxic mortgages, sold them to Wall Street brokers who in turn bundled them into investment packages  and sold them to world investors and banks thus polluting the world market with bad loans creating a worldwide financial collapse when the mortgages defaulted and the housing market imploded.

Trending in the right direction? Obama has successfully ruined the currency, left  the borders wide open, is reducing the military to a troop of cub scouts, instituted the government take over of private companies, tanked the economy, killed millions of private sector jobs, and is now bragging that he is the fourth greatest president in U.S. history. Give me a break! What gall.

President Barack Obama wins the Academy Award for being the world’s best LIAR. Every time he speaks he spews nothing but lies. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself. What truth has he spoken? (You know God hates liars).

Take the class warfare as an example. How can you blame the “rich” for your own incompetence? If it wasn’t for the rich there would be no jobs. Who does most of the hiring in the private sector? The rich. Has a poor man ever hired anyone? Why are the rich not hiring? Because of Obama’s recklessness and complete disregard for the private sector. His mantra is the Left’s continuing  support and belief in that “government”  is to be worshiped.

Fear not. Most Americans are hip to President Obama’s jive and they are not buying his lies anymore. All polls indicate the pretend-President is losing in all quarters of the political and racial spectrum. How can a nation look up to a leader that constantly has his finger in the wind and his head in the clouds?

All America anxiously awaits the November 6, 2012 elections. They cannot wait to vote President Barack Husein Obama out of office. The “Great Awakening” is happening. Obama’s “trending in right direction” will be thrown “off the cliff”.

Newt Gingrich is the only one who can lead our country forward and re-establish America’s greatness. He has the bold ideas with the experience and knowledge to back them up and the fearlessness to stand-up to our enemies both within and foreign.

He is already changing the national conversation over gas  prices with his challenge of $2.50 a gallon. This prompted Secretary of Energy Steven Chu to do an about face from his opinion stated earlier that he wanted gas prices to reach the levels in Europe (at $9 a gallon).

Now, Secretary Chu wants to see gas prices come down after poor poll numbers indicated the Obama Administration was doing a lousy job concerning rising gas prices. President Obama and his energy secretary have done everything to prevent opening up oil exploration both on land and off-shore as well as turning down the Keystone Pipeline from Canada to Houston, Texas. But, they are taking credit for the oil and gas production increases being made on PRIVATE land; not public lands. What hypocrites. The government has no authority over oil and gas leases on private property.

There is really no “inevitable Republican candidate”, even though the drive-by media has designated this status to Mitt Romney. As Newt repeatedly points out, if Romney is the front-runner why is it that he cannot get above 30 percent. Remember 2008, when Hillary Clinton was the inevitable candidate for the Democrat Party. What happened? A skinny Barack Obama took it away from her at the last minute.

It’s a long way from March to November, 2012. Anything can happen. Newt has been counted out before but he is like the “battery bunny” and keeps on drumming. Newt’s ideas make sense and  people are starting to pay attention. Everybody knows that Newt can make mince-meat out of Obama in a national debate. Mainly, because, besides being a politician, Newt is a real historian and he knows the true facts of which President Obama has not a clue.

Newt is better qualified to get things done in Washington because he knows how to handle the Congress — he has done it before as Speaker-of-the-House when he balanced the budget for four years in a row, among many other accomplishments.

This is not the Newt from ten or twenty years ago. This is a much better Newt who has made his peace with God and become a faithful Catholic. He exudes a genuine confidence that is both relaxed and forceful. He speaks with authority, wisdom, and clarity. Newt Gingrich will make a powerful president.

With his poll numbers dropping one wonders why the lame street media is stilling beating up on Herman Cain. The reason is they want to drive Cain out of the race for President. Why? Because if Herman Cain wins the Republican nomination it will become a contest of one Black man against another Black man neutralizing the “race card”. The Democrats and the Left are scared to death if this scenario plays out because it will divide their base in half. You will have an incumbent Black President who has run this country into the ground with no real solutions going against a proven problem solver, Black man, from the private sector who has  all kinds of solutions to save this nation from economically falling off the cliff. Obama’s goose will be cooked.

Another important reason the Left wants Cain out-of-the-picture is because  Herman Cain has been the favorite of the Tea Party people. The Left is terrified of the Tea Party because of the shellacking they took in the 2010 elections at the hands of  this grassroots movement. Herman Cain has fired-up the Tea Party more than anyone else running in the race. His positive spirit is awe inspiring and uplifting giving Americans great hope and encouragement.

Since the President cannot win re-election on his record the only tactic he has is to destroy his opponents by character assassination. Is it not odd that all these so-called sexually harassed women were only from the three year period Cain was CEO of the National Restaurant Association? And, all from Chicago? Has anyone checked the bank accounts of these women to see if they have been payed to lie? Has anyone come forward with any proof of their allegations? The answer is, you know the answer, NO!

Everyone of these bimbos are serial accusers of phony sexual harassment charges. They are all suffering with financial problems. Herman Cain has admitted to financially helping the last women, who claims she has had a 13-year affair with Herman.

Why, if you are supposedly having an affair with someone, would you come out in public and even admit there was nothing to the affair  beyond a  friendly relationship? Try this on for size. What if this woman was making all these telephone calls and sending text messages trying to borrow more money from Herman and Herman had to turn her down because he needs every dime for his campaign. Could this have made her want to “get even” for being turned down? Just asking.

The media, naturally, instead of doing their job, are all  in the tank for Obama and it is becoming more and more obvious and blatant. No real red-blooded American takes the media seriously anymore. Of course there are certain dummies out there who never pay attention and who may have never heard of Herman Cain until all these allegations started popping up. And who is going to give them the truth, the media? Dream on Dixie lamb.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article by Mary Kissel it seems that Attorney General Eric Holder, along with his “hired-gun” Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas Perez, is threatening small banks for now, large banks later, that if they do not lend to minority borrowers at below-market rates they will be sued for discrimination. What? Are they kidding? Does the Left never learn?

These are the same policies that got us into the Freddie Mac-Fannie Mae debacle that killed the  housing market in the first place. That’s not all. The banks are also forced to sign confidentiality agreements that they will not divulge what the Justice Department is doing to them. The “Chicago Mafia” is at it again. Bankers are afraid of the publicity and of losing their good reputations in their communities. So, instead of standing up to the devils they are capitulating and paying. If this is not extortion then ducks don’t quack.

Every congressman needs to be informed of this outrageous policy as soon as possible. Right now, many are unaware of  this war against lenders.

This is another example of Obama’s mafia in which they continue by-passing the legislative process and ruling by devastating, job-killing  regulations. To them this is “pay-back” time. What racist morons. They need to get over this Klu Klux Klan, “get whitey” mentality. They don’t get it that government’s role is to PROTECT not PERSECUTE.

They do not realize that these policies will hurt the minority community not help them. Why? Mainly because minorities will be put in to homes they cannot afford. Then what? They will lose their homes through foreclosures. How is this a policy to help people obtain home ownership? There is a more sinister reason for these backward and cruel policies. What is it?

The take over of the banking system by first destroying the small banks and later taking over the larger banks. He who controls the money controls the country. You read it here first. Now what?

Obama and the Democrats have to be not only defeated but destroyed in the 2012 elections. All Democrats running for re-election need to lose or resign in 2012, from the President on down. Most Americans are chomping at the bit and can’t wait until November, 2012, to cast their votes to “throw the bums out”.

Even all the polling done now, without a doubt, indicate that Obama will be a one-term President. But, besides the Presidency, the Dems have to lose the Senate and the Republicans must hold on to the House. Every American must take part in the 2012 elections or our country is doomed. We cannot afford one more year with this crowd in charge must less four more years.

Once again President (a loose term) Obama fails to own up to his being responsible for the economic chaos that is ravaging our nation. In his recent “address to the nation” (more of a political stump speech) he blames the previous Bush administration, people who own private jets, big oil, and those stubborn Republicans for the bad economy. The same old song-and-dance he performs every time he speaks. This broken record is becoming very tedious.

Reverting to the Democrat “playbook” of using scare tactics to turn public opinion against the Republicans is also getting tiresome and is beginning to backfire on Obama, Reid and Pelosi. The American public can see through all these lies perpetrated for class envy and warfare. Even liberal Democrats are bailing.

In a  recent Washington Post-ABC poll,  the number of liberal Democrats who strongly support Obama’s record on jobs dropped dramatically from 53 percent last year to 31 percent, a difference of 22 percent. The survey also shows that the number of Black  Americans who believe the president’s actions have helped the economy has dropped from 77 percent in October to just over 50  per cent.

This brings us to the so-called debt crisis and “raising the debt ceiling”. Who raises their debt ceiling to spend themselves into deeper debt. Democrats, that’s who.

Let’s see,  monthly Federal spending runs about $300 billion. Revenue from Federal tax collections is about $180 billion. The nation’s  vital obligations run about:  $25 billion for debt service (paying the interest);  $58 billion per month for Social Security; and, about $58 billion per month on National Defense. Tax revenues are more than enough to cover these $141 billion items (Federal law guarantees that grandma and the military get their checks no matter what) leaving 39 billion for other government expenditures. That still   leaves us $120 billion in the hole.

And why are we in the hole? Because of the idiotic policies of one Barrack Obama. Does borrowing and spending  more money to get out of debt make any sense to any rational human being? Who, in his right mind keeps charging on his credit card without any means to pay the bill. Again, Democrats. They don’t care because it is not their money; their job, as they see it, is to spend, Spend, SPEND. And, how does getting into more debt create jobs? It doesn’t.

Believing that most Americans are stupid, Democrats start spreading  falsehoods and misinformation to take your eyes off the ball as to what they are really scheming. They know we have enough funds to pay out Social Security, disability, and military checks but they outright lie; as Obama puts it,  “…can’t guarantee that the Social Security checks will go out”. Americans will not tolerate  dishonesty  and dishonest politicians. That is why Obama and the Democrats are rapidly losing favor not only from the general public but from their own supporters.

What is Obama doing about jobs in America? General Electric (that pays no income tax) is moving their 115 year old X-ray division from Wisconsin to China with an investment of $2 billion. The CEO of General Electric Jeff Imelt is the same one that Obama has appointed as America’s Jobs Csar. Very suspicious. Could this be Obama’s revenge against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker because of  the Governor’s victory over the unions. Something to think about.

In a recent 3-day rolling average (July 26-28, 2011) poll by Gallup, Obama’s job approval was: Approve – 41 percent; Disapprove – 52 percent. No President has ever won re-election with approval ratings below 50 percent. Putting the blame on others does not register anymore with the American public and his poll numbers will continue to tumble. After his third year  in office President Obama owns this economy. He cannot blame anyone except himself. Even his attempt to demonize the Tea Party movement has backfired leaving his “Blame Game” a useless and futile attempt to reflect his lack of leadership and bad policy making.

Obama and the Left are terrified of the Tea Party movement. The Tea Party represents the vast majority of the American people who are all right of center. This is basically a conservative nation. The Tea Party has done a great job and service to America by exposing the Left and the Democrats as to who they are, really. A new conversation has been established by the Tea Party and the Left is now in the glaring headlights of the public.

As to Obama and the bashing of the rich, his hypocrisy has been unveiled. On the one hand he attacks the rich while at the same time throwing a fund raiser/birthday party charging an admission of $35,800 per person. Who are these dummy  “rich”  forking over big money to an incompetent President? The so-called Liberal “in-crowd”? How can you be attacking the rich and at the same time using the rich to fill your campaign coffers.  If you are Barrack Hussein Obama this is a no brainer. Why? He hates the rich but is not adverse to taking their money.

By all accounts the “Blame-Game-Boogie” by Obama is fizzling out. Even blabbermouth Democrat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz admitted on T.V. recently  that Obama and the Democrats “…own this economy”.

The private sector is the engine that drives the economy NOT the government. Either President Obama and the Democrats are that naive or they are deliberately trying to destroy the U. S. economy. If they are trying to wreck the economy what is their purpose? Their ideological philosophy is to make everyone dependent solely on the government and not on the individual. If that is their goal then they are leading us into tyranny not freedom. Does that make any sense? We’ve seen the decline in Europe due to failed Socialist policies. Look at France, Greece, Portugal, and Spain, followed by England, Ireland,  and Germany. Socialism DOES NOT WORK.

The U.S.A. was founded for the sole purpose of individual freedom. It is the individual that has made our country great NOT government. Hard working Americans gave us the railroads, electricity, the automobile, radio, television, movies, jet planes, helicopters, computers, the yo-yo, Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald’s, K-Mart, WalMart, Sears, Costco, Hershey bars, Oreo cookies, the computer, the Internet and on-and-on. The government cannot produce anything,  all it can do is take our money and get in the way. Government does not create wealth it only taxes wealth.

It is government policies that have created our economic downturn.  How?  One example, oil prices are going up and what is the government’s solution? Raise taxes on the oil companies. Why? What happens when you raise taxes? Prices go UP!! Revenues go down. This is insanity. In this case, the government needs to give the oil companies the go ahead to drill for oil in our own country, give incentives for building new refineries, and do away with all the restrictive, phony-baloney, environmental regulations. Use a little common sense. Of course, this will not solve the problem overnight but it will get the wheels of the economy turning. Petroleum products affect every aspect of our society from simple gasoline to everything made from plastic.

Of course the real down hill spiral began in 2006 with the Democrat majority in both houses with Speaker of the House Nancy “grandmoll”  Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry  “the mental-midget”  Reid. They blocked every attempt by President Bush and the Republicans in Congress to cut spending and to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac resulting in the money crises and the collapse of the housing market. What was their mantra at that time? Bush is to blame.

When President George W. Bush took office in 2001, the Democrats claim we had a surplus. However, they fail to mention there was no real surplus but only a projection of  a surplus as projected by the Congressional Budget Office. In reality, there was a slight recession occurring at end of 2000 and the beginning of 2001. When the terrorist attack occurred on September 11, 2001, this brought the economy to a standstill. What happened to rejuvenate the economy?

President Bush immediately cut taxes across the board on income, dividends and capital gains; eventually eliminated the estate tax; further lowered burdens on married couples, parents and the working poor; and increased tax credits for education and retirement savings.  What was the result? The recession ended in November of 2001.

But, the war in Afghanistan  happened as the economy was recovering and throughout 2002, the economy grew at an anemic rate. This was followed by the war in Iraq. The Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 increased  the 2001 tax cut package and cut taxes again on dividends and capital gains. Even better results?

Thanks to George W. Bush’s tax cuts  the richest one percent went from paying 25% of all income taxes in 1990 to 39% in 2005. The richest 5% went from paying 44% of all income taxes in 1990 to paying 60% of all income taxes in 2005.  (As an aside: In 1980, when the top income tax rate was 70%, the richest 1% paid only 19% of all income taxes). So much for the Left’s phony bogus  cry of  “tax cuts for the rich”. Who are they kidding?

After the 2001 initial tax cuts, the annual growth rate went from 0.3% in 2001 to 2.5% in 2002. By 2004, the Gross  Domestic Product (GDP)  reached the highest in 20 years. With the 2003 tax cuts, the unemployment rate fell to the lowest level since World War II.

Fast-forward to the present. In 2009 Obama rammed through the so-called Stimulus package for the purpose of  increasing the job market with “shovel-ready” infra-structure jobs as well as unproven “green” jobs while promising unemployment would not go above 8 percent. What happened to the money? What happened to the jobs? What happened?

The money became a “slush fund” for the Democrat party. There are no shovel-ready jobs and no green jobs. Even Obama admitted, “…the shovel ready jobs weren’t so ready” at a meeting with top business people.

Then we had the passing of “Obama Care” , which no one read or knows what is in the bill creating uncertainty in the economy about the excessive costs to management and labor.  As a result, the  job market collapsed putting millions of Americans out of work. Great job Democrats. Unemployment is well above 9.2 percent and counting.

It gets even better. The Democrats have failed to introduce, much less pass, a budget for two-and-a-half years. Now, their “credit card” is about to expire and they want to RAISE the debt limit. Not only that, but they want to raise your taxes under the guise that they only want to raise taxes on the “rich”. Give-us-a- break.

Obama wants to tax everyone that makes more than $200,000 for singles, and more than $250,000 for families. Why these numbers? This is the top wage that Obama wants you to earn. Why else? How is $200-250,000 considered “rich” when Obama is always talking about millionaires and billionaires as being rich. Does all his razzle-dazzle make any sense?


The economy is tanking with more and more people out of work,  home foreclosures rising daily, and Obama continues with his lying to the American people. “We’ve turned the corner”,  “it may take a little longer”, and other nonsensical statements. In the meantime, his policies are working for him but not for the country. What do I mean? He is winning in his goal to bring America to its knees. Like all socialist/Marxists, he hates capitalism and is on the march to make the U.S. Europe. Not going to happen Barry baby.

Congressional Republicans need to stand firm and not increase the debt limit. Use the revenues coming in to to pay for entitlements and necessary government functions. Start cutting the government bureaucracies and capping any and all expenditures. Balance the budget. You in the House of Representatives are in control. You have the purse strings. You do not need to make any deals with the other side. You have the upper hand so stand up with a strong backbone and tell Obama and the Left that they are out of money. No more credit.

The only way to boost the economy is to lower taxes and reduce or eliminate burdensome regulations. Give the private sector their head to run and finish the race towards economic prosperity. God bless America.
