Look for a Tsunami of Small Business Firings Because of Obamacare

Obamacare Update:

Obamacare debuted on October 1, 2013. It is an unmitigated disaster! Five million people have lost their health care policies, the policies Obama promised 30 times between 2010 and 2013 they would be able to keep. Small business owners are the next to begin shedding insurance policies and workers beginning in 2014.

 

If you think the country is angry with Obama now, just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet!

 

This post was originally written just after Obama’s reelection in November 2012, accurately predicting the consequences of the Obamacare law on the country.

 

File this under elections have consequences. We already know how the market responded to Obama’s reelection, it tanked over 300 points

 

OBAMA LIED & GRANNY DIED

Or maybe this should be filed under Obama’s win is your job loss. Hope all the hope and change-y  stuff felt good. I just wonder if it will feel as good without a job.

It’s time for the workers of American to grow up and understand, not every CEO is a fat cat like Steve Wynn or Donald Trump.

Most small business owners pay their employees first, worry about how they will be able to make the next payroll and feed their families.

Now take a look at what happened in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

 

And here’s another story. Look for more coming in the next couple of months, because here’s the simple truth.

If you work for a small or medium size business and the business owner has to choose between keeping you employed or keeping bread on the table for his own family, there is no choice; you lose.

Threats to Assassinate Romney Explode on Twitter After 2nd Debate

This is staggering, completely unacceptable and to no one’s surprise COMPLETE SILENCE by the MSM.

If the situation were reversed and Romney supporters were threatening to assassinate Obama, does anyone believe for a nanosecond that these Twitter threats wouldn’t be spread all over the national news?

 

According to multiple sources including InfoWars:

As we reported yesterday, in addition to threats by Obama supporters to riot if Romney wins, innumerable Twitter users are also making direct death threats against Romney.

The primary reason given for Obama supporters wanting to see Romney dead is the fear that he will take away food stamps.

I have two questions. First, what’s Twitter’s policy on threats of assassination of political leaders? Secondly, think any of these Obama supporters/Twitter Assassination Thugs will get a visit from the Secret Service or other governmental agency? See below:

 

 

 

Hillary Clinton taking responsibility for Benghazi failures; why?

According to  CNN’s Elise Labott, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is falling on her sword and taking responsibility for the Benghazi failures! 

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the bucks stops with her when it comes to who is blame for a deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

“I take responsibility” for what happened on September 11, Clinton said in an interview with CNN’s Elise Labott soon after arriving in Lima, Peru for a visit. The interview, one of a series given to U.S. television networks Monday night, were the first she has given about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Clinton insisted President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are not involved in security decisions, Clinton said.

I have only one question, WHY?

Mother Jones 47% Romney tape is a fraud;no surprise it’s selectively edited

Legal Insurrection was able to get a comment from David Corn, the reporter at Mother Jones peddling the videos, regarding the missing footage. Corn admits there are, in fact, about one to two minutes that are unaccounted for.  The Blaze

The MSM knocked themselves out yesterday, going into full Romney attack mode. They were huffing ‘n puffing all day trying to blow the Romney wants to be Prez house down. A new tape (on YouTube since May) had just been “discovered” that caught Mitt Romney in an unguarded moment talking to a group of wealthy people at a private fundraiser.

Mitt’s alleged crime was he was caught on tape discussing the 47% of citizens who don’t pay any taxes. The media narrative/shiny object of the day…Mitt was clearly inferring these people were all freeloaders and he didn’t care about them or their votes.

(Actually the figure tossed around on all the networks and morning shows, Fox & Friends and Morning Joe included for the past 2 years, is 49%, but I digress.)

That’s what all the talking heads on the Obama Media Group networks were saying, so it must be true. It’s not actually what he said, but who cares, it’s not like anyone would think to check this out, right? 

Well, not exactly. Seems more than one source did some checking because the so-called complete tapes were not so complete after all. Turns out that the tapes presented to Mother Jones by Jimmy Carter’s weasel grandson (self described oppo researcher who was looking for a job) were less than full and unedited tapes. In fact they share something in common with the Nixon/Rosemary Woods tapes…stuffs missing!

According to the source, the recording device inadvertently turned off. The source noticed this quickly and turned it back on. (This is believable, right?) The source estimates that one to two minutes, maybe less, of recording was missed.

4444

Opps, maybe the unedited tapes were edited after all!

 

 I’m beginning to experience Obama lapdog whiplash or MLW. You know what that is right? It happens every time the MSM plants a false or slanted story and then has to recant it the next day!

Ambassdor Chris Stevens sacrificed on the altar of Obama’s Mideast appeasment policies

Most disturbing of all is to learn that the US was warned 48 hours before the attacks and did NOTHING to warn this country’s diplomats or to beef up security. One would think that beefing up security on the 11th anniversary of the destruction of the WTC twin towers would be a no-brainer, standard operating procedure, but no. The man who can recite the Muslim call to prayer, the Shahada did no such thing. In fact, most shocking of all is the night of September 11th, when Chris Stevens was known to be missing for five hours, Obama went to bed and slept like a baby!

Barack Obama has the blood of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff on his hands.

There simply is no other way to put it. His incoherent policies of appeasement in the Mideast and with our adversaries have left our country weaker and our foreign policies in tatters. Online Der Speigel says flatly that, “Obama’s Middle East Policy Is in Ruins

While the lap dogs in the MSM and Team Obama continue to spin the story that it was a lame 14 minute movie trailer, out on the Internet and on YouTube for months that caused the surprise attacks on the Libyan embassy, the truth behind the attack continues to come out.

Not only wasn’t the attack a surprise, Barack “why do I have to read those boring intelligence reports Obama and the State Department had been warned about the possibility of the attacks. Jay Carney’s response they lacked actionable intelligence” not only doesn’t cut it, it is diametrically opposed to what the Libyans have been saying for days.

Reading from these various sources that emphatically assert the US was warned days in advance of the attacks:

  • The Egyptian General Intelligence Service warned that a radical jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo. Egypt Independent
  • According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted. The Independent
  • Egypt intelligence warns of terror plot against US, Israeli embassies. ynetnews.com
  • Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies. The Jerusalem Post
  • Libyan military official claims he met with U.S. diplomats to tell them about the deteriorating security situation and President Mohamed el-Megarif says the attacks were NOT sparked by anti-Islamic video, but by Al Qaeda-connected foreigners. The DailyMailOnLine


I have remained a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton, having watched how the DNC nomination was literally ripped from her hands, stolen from her in 2008. I haven’t always agreed with all of her decisions but I decided to keep my power dry as it were, but not on this time.

Ultimately, the buck stops with Obama, but sadly, Hillary Clinton also has some “splainin to do”.

Ret. Col. David] Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since the 2011 fall of Khadafi’s regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.

He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton when she attached her signature to the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.

My loathing and disgust for MSM holds no bounds. They have gone over and above reason, common sense, and good taste (remember that quaint concept) turning themselves inside out to protect their poseur president.

Their relentless attacks on Mitt Romney for having the temerity to question Obama’s policies and the statements originally made by the State Department & on Obama’s website (later repudiated) on the evening of 9/11 remain unrelenting.

Their faux outrage over the timing of Mitt’s comments ring hollow. They practice group think and group speak, incapable of asking a single question as to why our Libyan ambassador and his staff were left to be slaughtered like lambs.

No wonder, as the MSM continues to shill and pimp for Obama, the disdain and hostility for this group grows hourly.

 

 

Obama’s Mideast Debacle; You Built This – US Ambassador & Three Others Dead

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.  The Independent

The end result of Obama’s “leading from behind”.

What has happened in the last two days is much bigger than the always ineligible man sitting in the White House, the British born Barack Obama.

We have a man with little feeling for this country who loves power and drones, whose actions and willful inactions have wrought havoc in the Mideast death to our  Ambassador in Libya, Chris Stevens and his staff.

It isn’t just that Obama has shown  he is as ineffective as Jimmy Carter or that this is what happens when a feckless amateur holds the most powerful office in the world. What is worse is that the lapdogs in the MSM are doing everything they can to protect him and divert attention from the massive failures his Mideast policies.

It is now being reported that the attack was most likely planned, something that was easily seen yesterday by anyone who isn’t a part of Obama’s administration. The attacks in Libya & Egypt were attacks on this country planned to be purposely executed on 9/11. We witnessed an act of war on Barack Hussein Obama’s watch, the direct result of his policies of appeasement.

Most disturbing of all is to learn that the US was warned 48 hours before the attacks and did NOTHING to warn this country’s diplomats or to beef up security. One would think that beefing up security on the 11th anniversary of the destruction of the WTC twin towers would be a no-brainer, standard operating procedure, but no. The man who can recite the Muslim call to prayer, the Shahada did no such thing.

In fact, most shocking of all is the night of September 11th, when Chris Stevens was known to be missing for five hours, Obama went to bed and slept like a baby!

The following was compiled by IBD and details how Obama has aided in the radicalization of the Mideast.

As you review Obama’s actions keep in mind that in the days leading up to the embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt, not only did Obama refuse to hold a meeting with Benjamin Netenyatu, but he also forgave $1.3 billion in debt  to Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed president, Mohamad Morsi.

2009: The Brotherhood’s spiritual leader — Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi — writes an open letter to Obama arguing terrorism is a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.

2009: Obama travels to Cairo to deliver apologetic speech to Muslims, and infuriates the Mubarak regime by inviting banned Brotherhood leaders to attend. Obama deliberately snubs Mubarak, who was neither present nor mentioned. He also snubs Israel during the Mideast trip.

2009: Obama appoints a Brotherhood-tied Islamist — Rashad Hussain — as U.S. envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which supports the Brotherhood.

2010: State Department lifts visa ban on Tariq Ramadan, suspected terrorist and Egyptian-born grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.

2010: Hussain meets with Ramadan at American-sponsored conference attended by U.S. and Brotherhood officials.

2010: Hussain meets with the Brotherhood’s grand mufti in Egypt.

2010: Obama meets one-on-one with Egypt’s foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who later remarks on Nile TV: “The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim.”

2010: The Brotherhood’s supreme guide calls for jihad against the U.S.

2011: Qaradawi calls for “days of rage” against Mubarak and other pro-Western regimes throughout Mideast.

2011: Riots erupt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Crowds organized by the Brotherhood demand Mubarak’s ouster, storm buildings.

2011: The White House fails to back longtime ally Mubarak, who flees Cairo.

2011: White House sends intelligence czar James Clapper to Capitol Hill to whitewash the Brotherhood’s extremism. Clapper testifies the group is moderate, “largely secular.”

2011: Qaradawi, exiled from Egypt for 30 years, is given a hero’s welcome in Tahrir Square, where he raises the banner of jihad.

2011: Through his State Department office, William Taylor — Clinton’s special coordinator for Middle East transitions and a longtime associate of Brotherhood apologists —gives Brotherhood and other Egyptian Islamists special training to prepare for the post-Mubarak elections.

2011: The Brotherhood wins control of Egyptian parliament, vows to tear up Egypt’s 30-year peace treaty with Israel and reestablishes ties with Hamas, Hezbollah.

2011: Obama gives Mideast speech demanding Israel relinquish land to Palestinians, while still refusing to visit Israel.

2011: Justice Department pulls plug on further prosecution of U.S.-based Brotherhood front groups identified as collaborators in conspiracy to funnel millions to Hamas.

2011: In a shocking first, the State Department formalizes ties with Egypt’s Brotherhood, letting diplomats deal directly with Brotherhood party officials in Cairo.

April 2012: The administration quietly releases $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian regime.

June 2012: Morsi wins presidency amid widespread reports of electoral fraud and voter intimidation by gun-toting Brotherhood thugs — including blockades of entire streets to prevent Christians from going to the polls. The Obama administration turns a blind eye, recognizes Morsi as victor.

June 2012: In a victory speech, Morsi vows to instate Shariah law, turning Egypt into an Islamic theocracy, and also promises to free jailed terrorists. He also demands Obama free World Trade Center terrorist and Brotherhood leader Omar Abdel-Rahman, a.k.a. the Blind Sheik, from U.S. prison.

June 2012: State grants visa to banned Egyptian terrorist who joins a delegation of Brotherhood officials from Egypt. They’re all invited to the White House to meet with Obama’s deputy national security adviser, who listens to their demands for the release of the Blind Sheik.

July 2012: Obama invites Morsi to visit the White House this September. The Muslim Brotherhood’s sudden ascendancy in the Mideast didn’t happen organically. It was helped along by a U.S. president sympathetic to its interests over those of Israel and his own country.

The untold story of the “Arab Spring” is that the Obama administration secretly helped bring Islamofascists to power.

 

Obama’s Failed Presidency

This picture might be funny if it weren’t so tragically accurate and pathetic.

If the truth be told, I predicted that Obama would turn out to be worse than Carter…in December of 2009!

Sadly, these wasted four years were easy to predict. His so-called soaring rhetoric always left me cold.

He is so clearly an empty suit, a glib pretender whose ascendancy was aided and abetted by the MSM, many members of Congress, and the courts. This group of actors continues to cover for him and his disastrous policies.

He surrounded himself with Chicago political hacks like the Iranian born Valerie Jarrett, bullies like Rahm Emanuel, and tax cheats like Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. Oh, and let us not forget the most corrupt Attorney General since John Mitchell, Eric Holder now in contempt of Congress for refusing to tell the truth about Fast & Furious.

He dissed the Congress and the Constitution issuing the greatest number of presidential directives and executive orders of any president in our history. His dissed our friends and allies and made friends with out enemies.

He trashed NASA’s space program so now our astronauts have to hitch a ride on Russian rockets to get to the space station the US built! In the process we also lost 7000 thousand precious jobs.

The economy is in a shambles and getting worse. The debt is close to $16 TRILLION dollars. His $800 billion stimulus was doomed to fail from the beginning, lacking direction, focus, and accountability!

He then shoved ObamaCare through the Senate with bribery, lies, and chicanery and despite the public’s universal hatred of the plan. Now officially a tax according to the Supreme Court, it remains one of the most despised pieces of legislation in our history with 60% of the public angry and against it.

Last month 163,00 thousand jobs were created. Team Obama is spinning the number like it was some great accomplishment when in fact it underscores his economic failures. In the healthy economies of the past, the country created 350,000 jobs every month!

I haven’t touched upon the unemployment rate the MSM reports at 8.3% (really 15%), or Obama’s 36 Czars (what is it that the Great Lakes Czar does exactly?), or his never ending golfing, or Michelle’s over spending, or the over regulation of everything from lemonade stands to oil fields.

Gas prices are up and US production is down while we have INCREASED our imports of foreign oil by 30%. There’s more, much, much, more. By any measure his presidency is a failure of gigantic proportions.

He has succeeded at one thing in addition to improving his golf score. He’s made Jimmy Carter look good… no easy accomplishment!

 

Obama Owns Supreme Court’s Decision; Obamacare is Legal as a Tax!

When is a win not a win or a tax not a tax? Or maybe I should have opined, “be careful for what you wish for, you may get it.” 

Obamacare passed constitutional muster today in a 5-4 decision written by Chief Justice Roberts. The most hated piece of legislation ever passed by the Congress is now officially the law of the land.

Yea, rah rah, maybe!

Chief Justice Roberts is either the cleverest or the most devious jurist ever. With his majority opinion in place, that Obamacare is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause, but is constitutional as a tax, Obama is stuck explaining how this contradiction in his portrayal of the law could have come to pass.

After all, didn’t Obama and is minions tell the American people countless times that Obamacare was not a tax.

This is from the White House Insider and what today’s decision means:

And the initial reports I’m getting are telling me there was a lot more clever going on inside that decision than the initial reaction will indicate. It’s the Obama Tax now.  And states were given an out.  The entire law is a big ass convoluted mess and the ruling has reinforced that fact.  Obama will have to defend something he doesn’t understand, and Romney can now sit back and just repeat over and over again “repeal-repeal-repeal”.

Oh, one other thing, it’s going to be a long, long time before Obama and the radical progressives will be able to talk about “activist judges” on the Supreme Court subverting the will of Congress and the American people.  Chief Justice John Roberts just saw to that.

No Domestic Drones;Drawing a Line in the Sand

Privacy is produced by exercising control of information about ourselves!  Jim Harper Cato Institute

 May 15, 2012 

Enough is enough! As a friend of mine is fond of saying, “I’ve had it Jack!”

Since 9/11 we’ve witnessed a series of new laws, the Patriot Act, NDAA, laws allowing warrantless surveillance, and presidential directives (Obama can order the killing of a U.S. citizen he considers a threat) all designed to strip Americans of their rights to privacy while giving the government the unabated authority to spy on us.

I stopped asking questions like, “where’s MSM on this story?” a long time ago. The answer is firmly in the Socialist hip pocket of Obama and his administration.

Besides this group has been too busy wasting our time with non-news stories covering every conceivable topic except the political decisions by our law makers & government that impart real impact on our lives. 

The FAA has authorized the use of aerial drones by law enforcement agencies , without any public discussion. The most basic question yet to be asked is where did the FAA authority come from? Certainly, not the Constitution! But never let it be said that will stop our Congress, a body that passes unconstitutional legislation all the time.

Anyone hear of H.R. 658? Thought not. The law signed by our poseur president, Obama, requires the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to “integrate drones into American airspace by 2015,”

 “Aerial drones are now used by the Texas Department of Public Safety; the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado; the Miami-Dade County, Florida, Police Department; and the Department of Homeland Security.

Rarely, do I agree with the ACLU, but they have been on point on this issue and the NDAA. This is one area where civil libertians, conservatives, moderates and yes even progressives can agree.

Drones are high-tech instruments of war that should be banned for use in the U.S. PERIOD! Not surprisingly, the NY Times calls the domestic drones “scary and useful!”

If the “war on terror” is over, as the Obama administration recently stated, pray tell just what is the necessity for upwards of 30,000 domestic drones by the year 2020?

Common Dreams’ progressive blog has just provided the FAA’s completed list of organizations “clamoring” for drones. Prepare yourself to be surprised by who believes they need domestic drones!


Is Obama Building a Case for War with Iran?

An assessment by U.S. spy agencies concludes that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States, highlighting new risks as the Obama administration escalates pressure on Tehran to halt its alleged pursuit of an atomic bomb.  The Washington Post

 

We’ve been down this road before haven’t we, only last time it was Bush and Iraq playing cat and mouse. We said they had weapons of mass destruction, they said they didn’t; however they stopped inspectors from verifying what they were saying was the truth. As we all know, that was a big mistake.

A DISTINCTION WITH NO DIFFERENCE

ONE IN THE SAME

Now we have our fake President Obama (what Constitution?), the man that now can detain any American citizen without due process simply by stating the person is a terrorist, the man who has already ordered the killing of an American citizen abroad, is playing cat and mouse with Iran.


Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently made clear in an interview with CBS that the U.S. will not allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb; period.

Walter Russell outlined Team Obama’s position in Via Meadia.

If Washington must bomb Iranian facilities to stop them, Obama will bomb.

[...] Panetta said “the United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us. We will take whatever steps are necessary to stop them. A nuclear Iran is unacceptable”.

When US secretaries talk about “whatever steps are necessary” they are not usually talking about holding one more meeting of the sanctions committee.  They are thinking shock and awe and not cookies and tea.

Is it possible the Iranians are foolish enough to really go after the U.S. with an “all out war” or will that be the propaganda our obedient FOOS (Friends of Obama) in the MSM will be spewing in the upcoming months?  

Salon’s Glenn Greenwald thinks so. In fact, he says the some in the MSM appear to be banging the war drums with relish and in a manner that would have been anathema if Bush 43 was targeting Iran. 

Is war with Iran inevitable before November of 2012 and will another event like 9/11 be manufactured as justification? 

All of which leads to whether you can you believe your own eyes and believe our fake President?
