Chicago’s Black Community to Obama…It’s Time for You to Quit!

The truth is, talk is cheap and no one has talked more or cheapened the presidency like Barack Hussein Obama.

 

I might have been able to overlook the fact that Obama has knowingly occupied the White House as the country’s first constitutionally ineligible president if he had been able to live up the rhetoric. We all know he hasn’t. He is as incompetent as anyone with half a brain was able to predict back in 2008.

 

The truth is what counts in life and in sports are results.  Team Obama’s lack of results speak for themselves. What is truly tragic is the impact on the black community, single women, and Millennials…all who voted for “Hope & Change” and got screwed. There are no jobs, no money, no nothing except faded bumper stickers and dreams.

 

All of which brings us to the following video.

Obamacare Website Knowingly Launched With 40% of Payment Software Not Completed!

Only in Washington is it acceptable to launch a website, 3  years in the development, that was never properly tested, crashing multiple times with as few as 6 users prior to the October 1st launch date, with limitless privacy issues, and STILL needs the back-end of the software to be built.

 

SAY WHAT???

 

It seems that less than two weeks before the Ocare website is supposed to fully functional (AGAIN!) as promised by Team Obama, 40% of the payment software is still to be completed. Do I have to state the obvious? Well, maybe for those Ocare supporters who can’t stop drinking the Kool-Aid, I do.

 

A glitch is a small momentary or temporary happenstance. A website that isn’t fully built, is a travesty, a hoax foisted on the American people by Washington ideologues, Progressives who don’t give a damn about anything but their always failed political agendas.

 

The whole thing needs to be scrapped. The government and its slew of annoyingly arrogant bureaucrats cannot build a system of this type. It isn’t only the complexity that Obama finally acknowledged yesterday, it is the lack of real life business experience and flexibility.

 

Crats” know how to propose laws and enforce them when it suits their needs and little else.   People who couldn’t operate a lemonade stand and make a profit have NO business trying to build a healthcare system that impacts one-sixth of the nation’s economy!  Geez!

The Fiscal Cliff for Dummies Explained

The truth is I am simply exhausted… exhausted from Team Obama’s governance style of going from crisis to crisis. It gets to a point where one simply does not care.

In fact, not only don’t I care, I can’t wait for the whole damn bunch of them to take a dive. It can’t happen fast enough.

Let’em all go over the friggin fiscal cliff…OK, Obama first…splat! Next in line Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (hand in hand please!) …splat!

Oh, we can’t forget the U.S. Navy for pulling one of its aircraft carriers from the Mideast as a way to protest the possible cutbacks brought about from the automatic sequestration cuts. It seems the Navy will lose $4 billion over the next six months, an amount not large enough to be considered spit in the ocean. So, Mr. Panetta hold hands with the Navy officials who put their interests above those of the country…splat!

By the way, did you know that sequestration doesn’t mean ACTUAL cuts, but a slow down in spending? According to the Coalition to Reduce Spending:

It’s important to note that the sequester isn’t cutting real spending. The automatic spending “cuts” are only from the bloated CBO baseline. In other words, the sequester will only slow down the rate of spending increases. That means Pentagon spending will still increase over the next  ten years even with the sequester.

Now, want to really get sick? According to writer Arnold Ahlert in FrontPageMag.Com latest post on all this sequester hysteria, the real number for our national debt is significantly higher than $16 trillion! When all the government’s “off the books” numbers are added in and counted America’s actual debt is $86.8 trillion, or 550% of GDP!!!

Remember when the MSM used to talk about all those “unfunded liabilities?” 

                                                                                                                                                                  Next in line for their trip over the cliff should be all those in the talking heads and icky economists in the MSM, Obama’s cheerleaders and fear-mongers for ginning up what the sequester really means…Mr. Cooper no pushing

Ms. Maddow, Mr. Matthews line up, right behind Paul (I love welfare states) Krugman… are you going to be pushed or do you want to jump (?)...splat, splat…splat!

The truth is, the $85 million that the sequestration “cuts” will impose when compared with our $16 trillion deficit are small indeed. When compared with our actual debt of $86 trillion, these cuts are the equivalent of a speck of sand on the Sahara desert. 

Hey, Mika and Joe Scarborough next in line. Ah, I love the smell of napalm sound of Progressives splattering in the morning! SPLAT! SPLAT!

 

 

 

 

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.

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!

 

Bill Maher & the Dems bemoan, “Hillary would have been better than Obama!” Gee, do ya think?

WE TOLD YOU SO!

HE HAD NO CREDENTIALS OTHER THAN THE FACT HE WAS PART BLACK. He looked good on camera and could read a teleprompter really well. We warned you BHO, pResident Obama was nothing more than an empty suit.

The emptiest of suits!

Hear that hysterical chorus in the background? That’s the sound of the Obots, the elitists, the chardonnay sipping, arugula chomping, supercilious, sanctimonious fools who really believed that “winning by any means” even if that meant winning by tossing out all that the Democratic Party stood for . . . including 18,000,000 of its voters.

What's Hillary's army knew from the beginning!

The guy never held a real job. He voted “present” 123 times when he was an Illinois legislator .  I’ll never get over that one! It should have been your first clue!

He never understood America or its citizens; and still doesn’t. He was in the U.S. Senate only 143 days; most of those were campaigning for POTUS! Team Obama also spent time covering up the fact HE WAS NEVER ELIGIBLE TO RUN FOR POTUS. HIS OWN WEBSITE ACKNOWLEDGES HE WAS BORN A BRIT/DUAL CITIZEN!

Now three years into his faux presidency, the economy is in shambles, the racial divide is larger and angrier before, and this country is the laughing stock of the world...and the Obots are surprised!?! I remain incredulous!

Now large segments of his supporters are crying in their Kool-Aid saying, “Hillary would have been a better president.” Gee, do ya think?

History will record that never have so few listened to the voices of so many and disregarded them . . . throwing those voices and their votes into the garbage heap and then acted surprised when what they’d “won” ultimately resulted in a loss, AGAIN!

 

 

May Unemployment rate 9.1%; Obama’s recovery is a joke!

Economists and Obama’s Progressive team of dreamers, ideologues, and academics have been wrong about the economy from day one, to which I would say,, “had enough yet?The May jobless rate rose to 9.1 %. I wonder, should we call Obamanomics a man-caused disaster?

OBAMA'S ECONOMIC RECOVERY OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN

pResident Obama and his team are strong on rhetoric (big hats & no cattle) and strong on job destruction! All these academics, people almost to the last one who have never created a real job are shocked, shocked I say that the economy isn’t recovering! We are faced with record breaking deficits, debt, and spending and this group is shocked! In what parallel universe do they reside?  No, it’s the ideological blinders they wear that keeps them from seeing reality!

People are losing ground.

Food and gasoline prices are up.  Wages are either down or stagnant. Only 54,000 jobs were created in May, not the 150,000 jobs that were projected; no, make that hoped for!  American companies are firing people. In order to recover, we need to be creating 250,000 to 300,000 jobs EVERY month make a dent in the pool of 14 million unemployed. BTW, the Labor Department is also reporting that the atrocious weather we experienced had nothing to do with the lack of jobs being created.

The truth is companies large and small do not want to hire because they have no confidence in Obama and his team of economic hacks! Jobs are being eliminated in companies both large and small. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that, “The jobless rate, which is obtained from a separate household survey, unexpectedly rose to 9.1%.”  The job rate unexpectedly rose, really? No, really?

Under Obama’s watch jobs have been destroyed in the Gulf and in the San Joaquin Valley (40% unemployment) with the help of the EPA and with outrageous over regulation. Virtually every job sector has shrunk and declined under Obama; hospitality. manufacturing, housing and home pricing, retail all down. But on the bright side, foreclosures and abandoned houses are up.

OBAMANOMICS... ENOUGH SAID

Here’s a shock, government jobs were also down in May. In fact, there are more government jobs that will be lost in the coming months because local and state governments, faced with their economic reality, will be forced to lay off workers in order to meet their state mandated balanced budgets!

One story the MSM isn’t reporting is the job growth in Texas for the last 5 years.

Texas created more jobs than the other 49 states combined!  If you want a job move to Texas. Banks and businesses are booming.  In 2010 while the rest of the country suffered,

the Dallas Federal Reserve noted this week that Texas exports rose 20.3% in the second half of 2009 and 7.6% in February 2010, Texas home sales are again on the rise, Texas retail sales have grown for eight straight months, and March job growth in Texas was twice the national rate (while the foreclosure rate in Texas is half the national pace.)

And why aren’t we hearing this story. The answer is simple, Texas economic policies are diametrically opposed to Obamanomics. Texas has a business friendly environment with lower taxes and intelligent business regulation.

HAD ENOUGH YET? HOW MUCH DESTRUCTION MUST WE ENDURE BEFORE THE FRAUD IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS EXPOSED?

 

 

OBAMA AKA NERO TINKERS WHILE THE WORLD IS IN FLAMES

The truth is, as long as Obama remains in the White House this country and the world are in peril.

Forgetting his illegitimacy to be POTUS for a moment, I might be able to overlook his trampling of the Constitutional requirements for President if he was credible and competent. He’s not. He is so out of his league. He dithers, frozen, incapable of making a decision. But should we expect any less from a man who voted present 123 times when he was in the Illinois State Legislature?

His incompetence is stunning.The Narcissist in Chief might be able to organize a two person parade but he still can’t lead one! This in a world where millions from around the globe look to the United States for leadership.

I have nothing but disgust and utter contempt for the Fraud and those surrounding him who continue to prop up this fool and his ridiculous ideas about America. Hey, Barack, America has grown up since the 60’s. You and the pathetic “radicals” you surround yourself with have not.

My ire is especially intense towards the cable snooze shows, especially FOX News, members of Congress who have known from the beginning that he was a fraud, and of course the impotent judiciary including the Supreme Court who continue to aid and abet regardless of the long term consequences for this country and the rest of world.

All of which leads me to this weekend. While the world is in turmoil in the Middle East, while patriots in Libya are trying to defeat a despot and crazy man with little more than sticks and stones, and Japan is facing the most horrific disaster since the bombing of its cities to end World War II what is our Faux President doing?

He was giving us his picks for the NCAA Tournament, yakking about gender equality, playing golf, preening and pretending. He had time to talk about bullies but not time to help establish a no-fly zone so that whack job Gadaffi couldn’t bomb helpless civilians in his country.

As this writer observed:

Obama has told the world that we are “tightening the noose” on Libya. Yeah, right. To date, that has been about it. France and the UK want a no-fly zone to keep Gaddafi’s aircraft from massacringthe rebels. As this is being written, it looks like Gaddafi is winning, as his forces capture more and more rebel enclaves. The Arab League has condemned the Libyan leader in no uncertain terms. The UN and even NATO are heavily involved in deliberations. However, the no-fly zone is becoming a moot point at this stage. The opportunity to impose this is likely gone. The Obama position seems unusual for the world’s only super power, don’t you think?

When America does not lead, a vacuum occurs.

Memo to Karl Rove.

It has been said that you helped orchestrate Obama’s occupancy into the White House, knowing that McCain would loose in ’08. This was with the belief Obama would be a one term President so that 2012 would bring us a Romney/Bush win and Republicans for eons to come.

The problem is what sounded tactically sound in ’08 has been a disaster for this country. Obama’s incompetence was far greater than anyone would have projected, including you.

The ineligibility drums are beating louder and louder. This is not going away. I’m betting you have the wherewithal to orchestrate Obama’s removal from office in a manner that that saves the Republic and a bunch of non deserving rear ends as well.

 

Surprise! Senior Staff who Wrote Obamacare have Exempted Themselves from Mandatory Insurance Purchases!

I can hear Gomer Pyle now …

Is  there ANYONE who can seriously say they are surprised by this?  Thought not!

The New Ledger is reporting that one only need look at page 158 to find the exemption:

[…]

(D) MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IN THE EXCHANGE-

(i) REQUIREMENT- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, after the effective date of this subtitle, the only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are–

(I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or

(II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act).

But as with a lot of legislative matters, the devil is in the details — or in this case, the definitions. (emphasis mine)  As anyone who’s worked on Capitol Hill knows, the personal office staff for a member is governed by different rules than those who work on committees and in the leadership offices.

It appears from the way this language is written that those staffers NOT in personal offices, such as those working and paid under the committee structure (such as those working for Chairman Henry Waxman) or those working on leadership staff (such as those working for Speaker Nancy Pelosi) would be exempt from these requirements.

[…]

According to the Congressional Research Service, this definition of staff will only apply to those staffers employed within a member’s “personal office” — meaning that it will absolutely not apply to committee staff members, and may not apply to leadership staff.


RONALD REAGAN WARNED ABOUT SOCIALISM & PROGRESSIVES & WE DIDN’T LISTEN!

This was originally written in 2010 shortly after Obamacare passed on a strictly partisan basis…not a single GOP member voting for it.

 

I never really cared for Ronald Reagan that much, having believed the propaganda from the left and the MSM, that he wasn’t terribly bright … I was wrong!  I confess to thinking he was just a nice man who could tell a good joke … after all he had impeccable timing having been an actor, don’t you know!

 

I always thought that the term liberal main stream media, was a fabrication of all those nasty Republicans and conservatives … I was wrong. Watching the Constitutionally ineligible Obama get elected in 2008 watching and the tactics (truth squads, voter intimidation) used by Team Obama (and the MSM) to obstruct the will of the voters (18 millions voters can’t be wrong), to side-step and ignore the Constitution has completely changed my opinion.

 

This doesn’t mean that I will ever call myself a Republican or that I admire everything the Reagan administration did.  They used sleight of hand just as effectively as Obama, Pelosi, and Reid do today.  After all who can forget  Iran-Contra or the huge deficit Reagan left upon leaving office?

 

That having been said, how can one listen to these videos and not acknowledge Reagan was right when it came to socialism and the progressives?  Think yesterday’s “historic” passage of the Dem’s health care package happened in a vacuüm?

 

Think again. Damn it, Reagan was right!

 

And so, today we have government mandated health care for every citizen with the threat of 16,500 IRS agents to be hired every month to make sure every citizen purchases health insurance … this in the land of the free and the brave!
