Today, Obama decided to negotiate a tax cut deal in the media, in a speech, rather than in Washington, in his office, with members of congress. Here is what Paul Ryan had to say about this latest bit of Chicago style showmanship
Today, in a speech in
, President Obama said he's interested
in tax reform for corporations -- but not for families or small businesses.
Once again, the president is playing favorites. Chattanooga, Tenn
It isn't the first time. He wants to give some businesses relief from ObamaCare. But he refuses to give the same relief to families. He wants to funnel money to his green-energy cronies. But he refuses to let us develop our energy resources and create good-paying jobs. He wants to give big banks a backstop -- and a leg up on community banks.
The president claims his economic agenda is for the middle class. But it's actually for the well-connected. There's no doubt that it works well for them. But for the rest of us, it's not working at all. Today we have record poverty and high unemployment. For too many families, the American Dream is out of reach.
What the president is really offering is to replace government by the people with government by the experts. So he might call his plan a grand bargain. But I call it a raw deal.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is the chairman of the House Budget Committee.
Almost immediately after Obama took office under the false pretense of uniting this country, he began his full-on assault against the conservative population. Because of the article (below) published on April 14 of 2009, we know the planning for this Progressive assault was done in February and March. Because of the recent congressional investigations, we know that this assault reached its zenith just last year, before the 2012 elections. The IRS targeting scandal is much larger than the IRS; it includes the AFT, the EPA, OSHA, and the FBI. We have recent testimony confirming all of this.
The recent scandals are the end game. So many of us missed the beginning of this "game." We now know that from the very beginning of 2009 and Obama's inauguration, Homeland Security and the White House (that is what this article says) were in collusion to stifle the conservative population in this nation. They already knew – they being Janet Napolitano and Hussein Obama and Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Max Baucus and Harry Reid and Charles Schumer and Dick Durbin and every single member of the Castro loving Congressional Black Caucus – that in order to implement their One World, borderless, white Christian hating secular atheist agenda, they had to deal, decisively, with the conservative GOP. No worries about such compromisers as John McCain and Lindsey Graham. "They" already had these types in their back pocket. Having crushed the hapless buffoon, John McCain, and the conservative support system within the GOP, they were well on their way to accomplishing what they had always dreamed, one party Progressive rule.
But enough !! You all know much of the rest of this story, how conservatives ignored the GOP RINO Herd and began an epic grassroots resistance that has brought this nation’s Progressive movement to a near halt.
I am using this post and the Times article to remind you all that Obama’s attack against conservatives was at the very top of his 2009 agenda . . . . numero uno. Incredibly, and because of sheer incompetence, one party rule accomplished next nothing that was sustainable and of national value. In the midterms of 2010, conservatives, with the help of the likes of Sarah Palin (thank God she did not quit), walked away with 30 state governorships, took back the House in the most one sided election victory in American history, gained seats in the Senate, and won nearly 800 local elections. While virtually everyone on the Left ignored this election, there was no ignoring the fact that it was one of the most profound "slaps in the face" given to a majority party in our history. And, to think, the beginning of this conservative sweep was a move, on the part of an arrogant and self absorbed class of elitists who thought the end of the world had come for their conservative foes.
Now that we know their intentions were nothing short of a conservative annihilation, we all know what we must do. Progressives must become extinct because of their ultimate intentions for total domination.

Federal agency warns of radicals on right
9-page report sent to police
The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of
's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias. America
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.
The White House has distanced itself from the analysis. When asked for comment on its contents, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said, "The President is focused not on politics but rather taking the steps necessary to protect all Americans from the threat of violence and terrorism regardless of its origins. He also believes those who serve represent the best of this country, and he will continue to ensure that our veterans receive the respect and benefits they have earned."
The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff's departments across the
on April 7 under the headline, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment." United States
It says the federal government "will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months" to gather information on "rightwing extremist activity in the
." United States
The joint federal-state activities will have "a particular emphasis" on the causes of "rightwing extremist radicalization."
Homeland Security spokeswoman Sara Kuban said the report is one in an ongoing series of assessments by the department to "facilitate a greater understanding of the phenomenon of violent radicalization in the
The report, which was first disclosed to the public by nationally syndicated radio host Roger Hedgecock, makes clear that the Homeland Security Department does not have "specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence."It warns that fringe organizations are gaining recruits, but it provides no numbers. . . . . .
Obama has decided to "engage the American people" for the 1000th time, rather than engaging congress.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Four out of 5
adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at
least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an
elusive American dream. U.S.
Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized
the widening gap between rich and poor, and the loss of good-paying
manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend. U.S.
The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration's emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to "rebuild ladders of opportunity" and reverse income inequality.
Editor’s notes: Understand this – the only way H Obama can reverse income inequality or rebuild ladders of opportunity is to
a) significantly cut taxes on those who supply or create jobs, long term cuts based on hiring and sustained increases in employed personnel,
b) cut the massive cost of regulations due to thousands of new regulations added each and every year,
c) effectively deal with the rising cost of health care, and, finally,
d) get rid of those penalties in ObamaCare that encourage part-time hiring practices.
While there is little new in my suggestions, Obama is opposed to any of these solutions because they limit what he hopes to create in terms of social benefit programs. “Ladders of opportunity” is a concept that has little definition in the mind of Obama and has more to do with engineered (government supplied) income equality than it does opportunities for work related improvement.
But he has to B.S. his way through the next 3 years, and, cheap talk is his only available avenue. It keeps him “busy” as he “engages the American people,” but will have little to show for the time and money spent running around the country rather than engaging party leadership in
Obama Says Income Gap Is Fraying
Social Fabric U.S.
By JACKIE CALMES and MICHAEL D. SHEAR
Published: July 27, 2013
GALESBURG, Ill. — In a week when he tried to focus attention on the struggles of the middle class, President Obama said in an interview that he was worried that years of widening income inequality and the lingering effects of the financial crisis had frayed the country’s social fabric and undermined Americans’ belief in opportunity. Upward mobility, Mr. Obama said in a 40-minute interview with The New York Times, “was part and parcel of who we were as Americans.” “And that’s what’s been eroding over the last 20, 30 years, well before the financial crisis,” he added. “If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” he said. “That’s not a future that we should accept.”
Editor's notes: Understand that H Obama has no training in the creation or maintenance of a sustainable economic recovery. It is an accepted fact that this "recovery" is the slowest in American history . . . . . bar none. While he inherited an out of control financial circumstance, the recovery failing belongs to Obama and his [exclusive] administration of the regulatory climate. With Dodd/Frank and ObamaCare, we have the creation of well over 35,000 pages rules and regulations with the promise of more to come. None of this advances the economy . . . . none of it. OSHA, the EPA and the IRS have all gotten more punitive in their daily business; again, a huge problem for business. And ObamaCare has redefined the average work week as "under 30 hours" which means that the middle class will earn less with increasing healthcare costs and inflation as to the cost of living. For Obama to posit a problematic environment for the middle class without stating a working plan for getting job creators back on track (and that does not include Central Government), is the strongest indicator, to date, that he has learned nothing in the past four years . . . . as relates to national economic health.
Midknight Review markets almost exclusively in Obama/political news. As you can see, such news reporting is almost none extent. Obama has spent all of his political cashe. Now, we just wait for the next Incompetent to rise to the occasion.
From "The Blaze," we have the truth about Zimmerman's rescue of a family of four. The hatemongers claim this never happened. Here is PROOF that it did. You should know that this family is now fearful for their lives because of the Leftist Vigilantes in the CBC and related associations.
I have preached this for years: The problem with allowing "gay marriage" is the end game of criminalizing anti-homo speech. Now it has happened and in the State of Texas, no less !!
OneNewsNow: The San Antonio City Council is doing some housecleaning to combine all of its anti-discrimination rules and ordinances into one. The consolidated ordinance states a desire to adopt a “comprehensive and expanded non-discrimination policy with revisions to outdated terminology.”
According to Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, the city leaders want to add two categories to the policy: sexual orientation and gender identity.
“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”
Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.
“They said they’ve never seen this kind of language in any other ordinance in any other city that they’ve dealt with,”the pastor shares. “It is unprecedentedly wrong – and of course the citizens of San Antonio must stop it.”
Flowers maintains the ordinance violates state and federal constitutions in terms of freedom of speech and religion. He is inviting people throughout the U.S. to call the members of the San Antonio City Council to politely voice their opposition.
Obama, out of ideas, will spend the next 1200 days waiting for YOUR ideas and doing the same old same old. (So what has changed since the 2010?).
"I’ve got a little over 1,200 days left in office. I am going to spend every waking minute of every one of those days thinking about and then acting upon any good ideas out there that are going to help ordinary Americans succeed, that are going to make sure that the next generation believes in the American Dream because they’ve seen it in their own lives. That’s how I’m going to spend my time. I hope that’s how you’re going to spend your time. (Applause.) Because if you do, I guarantee you we will continue to make progress and we will deliver on everything that we talked about in 2008 and 2012. (Applause.)."
Editor’s notes: Anyone know what this means? Well, for starters, it means that this clown is out of ideas and, worst yet, has no formally stated agenda. He is flying on the seat of his pants -- much like he has done over the course of the past four years. Nothing of import will come out of this search for ideas, knowing that those who follow him have no clue as to how the political/financial/jobs world really works.
He begs for money via HHS to fund ObamaCare. He begs for prosecutorial ideas as he prepares to move forward with the black idiocy that the Zimmerman persecution. He begs for populace ideas on running the government. No one in his administration knows how to create jobs and they are not seeking help. No one in his administration knows what to do with Iran and has not fresh ideas in this regards since Jan 20, 2009. He allowed folks to decorate the WH Christmas tree with Moa artifacts but no longer allows pictures to be taken of that tree. He gets credit for ObamaCare but turned that entire mess over to Pelosi, Reid, Baucus and other non-professional medical types and look at that mess.
And now, he intends to spend the next 1200 days hoping for ideas that turn America around. Geeeeesh.

Real unemployment is 14.3% NOT counting the 6 million Americans no longer listed on any statistical survey because they have given up and are no longer looking for work.
Former Bureau of Labor Statistics chief Keith Hall recently was asked about the unemployment rate, which shows 7.6% of all Americans without jobs. His answer was shocking.
<<<< Real unemployment is 14.3%
“Right now (the standard unemployment rate) is misleadingly low,” Hall, now with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, told New York Post financial reporter John Crudele.

Col George Bristol, hidden from view for months and months, has agreed to testify regarding Benghazi, behind closed doors. If there is a smoking gun in all this tragedy, we will soon hear about it.
despite what some GOP members are saying was an effort by the Pentagon to hide him.
Defense Department officials have previously told congressional investigators and the news media that Col. George Bristol cannot be compelled to testify because he is retired, but Marine Corps Times this week reported that he remains on active duty until the end of the month.
“There is every reason to expect that a briefing [with Col. Bristol] will take place in the near future,” Claude Chafin, the spokesman for the Republican majority on the House Armed Services Committee, told The Washington Times Friday. “We are working out the details with the Department of Defense.” He said the briefing would likely be in a classified setting. “Questioning our witnesses in a closed briefing allows members to receive information without worrying about the disclosure of classified material.”
“Col. Bristol will be available to meet with House and Senate members and their staffs very soon,” Air Force Maj. Robert A. Firman, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed to The Times.
Its not that he said, "You can keep your doctor" that is the lie. Rather, it is this, "You can keep your doctor, period."
There is nothing said in the next 1.40 minutes that is true . . . . nothing. The American people should have legal recourse when politicians get the legislation they want because of lies . . . . period.

WASHINGTON — Stung by Americans’ persistent worries about the economy and a capital gripped by controversy and gridlock, President Barack Obama is suffering his lowest job approval numbers in nearly two years, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll. . . . . . just 37 percent of the respondents approved of his handling of the economy, while 56 percent disapproved. . . . . . . Overall, the poll found Obama’s job approval at 41 percent last week, a sharp drop from April’s 50 percent and his worst showing in the poll since 39 percent in September 2011. Forty-eight percent disapproved in the latest poll, up from April’s 46 percent.
From the Illinois Review: WHEN ARE WE EVER GOING TO TIRE OF H OBAMA'S EXTREME HYPOCRISY - A MAN WILLING TO SAY AND DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING TO WIN POPULARITY.
OBAMA CO-SPONSORED LEGISLATION STRENGTHENING ILLINOIS' "STAND YOUR GROUND" LAW
CHICAGO - This past week President Obama publicly urged the reexamination of state self-defense laws (see remarks below). However, nine years ago then-State Sen. Barack Obama actually co-sponsored a bill that strengthened Illinois' 1961 "stand your ground" law.
The Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state's 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates when a "stand your ground" defense is used in protecting his or her person, dwelling or other property.
The bill unanimously passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois Senate on March 25, 2004 with only one comment, and passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois House in May 2004 with only two votes in opposition. Then-Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) signed it into law.
Obama sides with the radical Muslim Brotherhood. What we do not know about Hussein Obama is becoming very important, no ??!!
Obama should have opened the doors of the WH to all factions within Egypt, rather than appearing to have taken sides, favoring the Muslim Brotherhood. Today, in the face of a 22 million man demonstration and public opinion (Egyptian) turning against Obama, our Stranger in the White House has decided to "ride the fence." The effect of such non-action is to support the Muslim Brotherhood and the people in the streets if of Egypt know this. the Muslim Brotherhood hates the State of Israel and indicates a willingness to destroy the Jewish nation.
At the same time, Samantha Power, Obama's nominee for Ambassador to the UN, calls for "investing not in Israel's military but investing in the new State of Palestine."
I do not believe Hussein is a Muslim, but he often acts like one and to what purpose ?? That is the real question of the moment.
In May of 2011, the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, was to be assassinated in a Washington DC restaurant. Bad timing. Obama was already pretending that the war on terror was unnecessary; that he had ended the threat. Why is this news? Because a retired Marine General is (finally) standing up to Obama's insane military policies.
ASPEN, Colo. — James Mattis, who retired last month as a Marine four-star general and head of U.S. Central Command, on Saturday bluntly criticized the Obama administration’s response to what U.S. officials say was a plot by the Iranian government in 2011 to assassinate the Saudi ambassador at a Washington restaurant.
Answering questions by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer before an audience at the Aspen Security Forum, Mattis said he found it inexplicable that the plot was dealt with as a law enforcement matter with no clear diplomatic or military response.
Iran was under Mattis’ purview at Central Command. Asked afterward whether he presented military options to the White House that were rejected, he said his advice would remain confidential.
In May, Manssor Arbabsiar, an Iranian American used-car salesman from Texas, was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to plotting to hire assassins from a Mexican drug cartel to murder Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. at the behest of a cousin in Iran. The cousin, Gholam Shakuri, was a high-ranking member of the Quds Force, which is part of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.
Mattis said the plot was orchestrated “at the highest levels” of the Iranian government.
He criticized the fact that the U.S. announced the plot to the public by having Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. detail criminal charges. “Why wasn’t the secretary of State, secretary of Defense up at the microphone, not making any threats, just saying, we’ll be back?” he said.
The response was not adequate, he said. “I don’t know why [it] wasn’t dealt with more strongly.”
An Obama administration spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.
Editor's notes: the impact of the following lede is this: because of the short sightedness of Obama's forced GM bankruptcy, Detroit was left in the dust. Understand that when Obama was claiming victory for saving Detroit, last December (2012), that city's financial health had already gone the way of the wind. He looked the camera in the eye, declared victory, knowing that Detroit was about to take a fall. And if he did not know this, "feckless" needs to written in caps, as the first word of tribute to his presidential legacy. What an absolute joke of a leader.
Detroit’s bankruptcy filing is intertwined with the problems that sent General Motors and Chrysler into their own bankruptcy reorganizations, GM CEO Dan Akerson says. “It’s simply a matter of macro-economics. The (auto) industry generally wasn’t doing well. Many jobs were lost as the result of the restructuring, including our own [in Detroit] , and the tax base in large measure evaporated,” he said in an interview at USA TODAY headquarters in McLean, Va., today.
The city’s filing has no immediate impact on automakers “from a financial perspective,” Akerson said, but he said it will be better for everyone if the bankruptcy process is expedited.
“The faster we get though this, and the quicker we rebuild, the better for the city and the state and for our industry,” he said.
