…. When asked what happened to the proposal, Wynn said he was unsure what President Obama would do next.

“I’m afraid of the president,” said Wynn. “I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you, Jon, that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks.”

If President Obama signs the National Defense Authorization Act that is sitting on his desk, it will give him the power to arrest any American citizen and send them to Guantanamo Bay without any charges, without a trial and the imprisonment can be indefinite.

Contained in the over 1800 pages of the massive bill is a provision that gives the military the power to indefinitely detain any suspected terrorists without filing charges. Since the President is Commander in Chief of the armed forces, that provision also gives him the same powers.

The real danger lies in the government’s definition of what a suspected terrorist is.

According to Sen Rand Paul (R-KY),

“We’re talking about American citizens who can be taken from the United States and sent to a camp at Guantanamo Bay and held indefinitely. There are laws on the books right now that characterize who might be a terrorist: someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect, according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist. If you are suspected because of these activities, do you want the government to have the ability to send you to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention?”…..

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement on the failure of the supercommittee:

“Ultimately, responsibility for this failure lays at President Obama’s feet. The whole reason a supercommittee was created was because the President wasn’t willing to lead, wasn’t willing to even put on paper his plans for cutting spending. It’s amazing to what lengths he will go to avoid making tough decisions. And who pays the price for Washington’s failure? The American people and our military personnel, who will now be subjected to a half trillion dollars in national defense cuts?

Secret Service Agent-Turned Senate Hopeful: ‘I Like the President,’ but ‘Policies Just Wrong’

After more than a decade protecting presidents with the Secret Service, Daniel Bongino is currently running against the policies that the most recent president he worked under – President Obama – has moved along.

Bongino, who quit his job with the Secret Service in May to run for the Senate as a Republican in Maryland, told us on ABC’s “Top Line” today that it’s nothing personal.

“I like the president a lot personally. We had a good relationship. He was a wonderful man to me, and this is not any kind of a personal gripe,” Bongino said.

“It’s strictly a political, ideological difference. His policies I think are just wrong. We’re headed down a path I don’t think we want to go down.”

Bongino would become the first former Secret Service agent to serve in Congress. And his reason for running sounds similar to the rationale given by dozens if not hundreds of first-time candidates over the last few years.

Washington Post Column: President Obama shouldn’t be afraid of a little class warfare

September 24, 2011 Leave a comment

On Monday, defending his plan to raise taxes on the rich to pay for job creation, President Obama said: “This is not class warfare, it’s math.”

No, Mr. President, this is class warfare — and it’s a war you’d better win. Corporate interests and the rich started it. Right now, they’re winning. Progressives and the middle class must fight back, and the president should be clear whose side he’s on.

The class war began in 1971. That year, soon-to-be Supreme Court justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. wrote a confidential memorandum to a friend at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce about the “Attack of the American Free Enterprise System.” In the mid-20th century — from the New Deal to Social Security to environmental and civil rights laws — the government had cut into corporate profits while creating middle-class prosperity. Falsely believing that capitalism was under attack, Powell wrote: “It must be recognized that businessmen have not been trained or equipped to conduct guerrilla warfare with those who propagandize against the system.” His proposal, from which the modern conservative movement grew, was to equip business elites for that battle with aggressive policies to make Americans believe that what’s good for wealthy chief executives is good for them, too.

Between 1979 and 2007, the income gap between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the poorest 40 percent more than tripled. Today, the richest 10 percent of Americans control two-thirds of the nation’s wealth, while, according to recently released census data, average Americans saw their real incomes decline by 2.3 percent in 2010. Though our economy grew in 2009 and 2010, 88 percent of the increase in real national income went to corporate profits, one study found. Only 1 percent went to wages and salaries for working people.

Limbaugh: ‘Obama Wants Riots to Create Chaos’

September 19, 2011 Leave a comment

National radio host Rush Limbaugh responded to New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s warning that there would be civil disobedience on the streets of America if unemployment figures continued to rise by claiming that President Obama wants to see riots so that he can politically exploit the chaos that would ensue.

Limbaugh: Obama Wants Riots to Create Chaos

Bloomberg said Friday that rising unemployment and poverty in the United States is raising the likelihood of riots similar to unrest that has gripped Europe over the last 18 months.

While deflecting criticism from Obama for presiding over a 9.1 per cent unemployment rate (the real figure is much higher), Bloomberg stated, “The public knows there is something wrong in this country, and there is. The bottom line is that they’re upset… don’t want those kinds of riots here.”

Limbaugh was quick to respond on his nationally syndicated radio show, labeling the New York Mayor “Doomberg,” and slamming him as “an order of fries short of a Happy Meal,” for believing that Obama’s jobs plan could remedy the crisis and asking him how many jobs would be created instantly if the US enforced its immigration laws.

Limbaugh then controversially suggested that the Obama administration was anticipating riots and would in fact welcome them.

“Now, I can’t remember if I said this on this program or just to friends, but I know I’ve said it to friends. You’ll have to recall yourself whether I’ve said this on the radio or not, but over the last two years, I myself have said that before all is said and done there’s gonna be riots in this country over this stuff, and Obama wants it, not gonna be upset by ‘em. Chaos, it’s all part of the continuing chaos,” said Limbaugh.

In charging that Obama wants to see riots and chaos on the streets of American, Limbaugh is insinuating that the administration plans to exploit the disorder so that the American people as a whole demand stability and more big government.

* A d v e r t i s e m e n t


The likes of Gerald Celente and Infowars have been warning about the onset of riots for years, but Ron Paul recently reiterated the threat, noting that the federal government was preparing for a “breakdown in law and order”.

“You can have a breakdown of law and order so the people will unfortunately be begging for stabilization, and they’ll be inviting the federal government to come in and destabilize things, so I think they’re making plans along those lines,” said the Texas Congressman.

Authorities are already gearing up for violent unrest following last month’s riots in the United Kingdom. High-tech guard towers designed for “crowd control” in times of civil disobedience are now popping up on American streets, while police departments across the country are being trained to deal with rioters.

Planners at the military level have also been quietly preparing for mass unrest for several years.

In November 2008, right as the economic implosion was unraveling, the U.S. Army War College released a white paper called Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development. The report warned that the military must be prepared for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,” which could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse,” “purposeful domestic resistance,” “pervasive public health emergencies” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.” The “widespread civil violence,” the document said, “would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.”

As we reported three years ago, U.S. troops returning from Iraq were being re-allocated to occupy America, running checkpoints and training to deal with “civil unrest and crowd control” under the auspices of a Northcom program that revolved around deploying 20,000 active duty troops inside America to “help” state and local officials during times of emergency.

The date set for the completion of this program was 2011.

Republicans have just had an amazing victory in New York.

Naturally, after 88 years of democratic stronghold in New York’s Ninth District, it is not surprising to find analysts limiting their comments to down-to-earth interests presenting the Republican win as “voter displeasure” over president Obama and the liberal democratic agenda that has been passing until now, at City level in New York, or at a broader level of government, such with laws as same-sex marriage, pro-union policies, the disappearance of ‘mother’ and ‘father’ in official forms being replaced by ‘partner one’ and ‘partner two’, the abolition of don’t-ask-don’t-tell in the military, authorized distribution of gay magazines among our men in the military, all that crowned by a devastating economic, social and political liberal agenda aimed at the destruction of our country’s fundamental structure and that has been put in place now since over two years ago -while an ever dangerously increasing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic trend looms in New York and America”s everyday life, alas, not only reduced to anti-Semitic remarks against Israel and Jews. » If you like this article, please subscribe to our daily newsletter

Obama Loses Beer Buddy

August 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Obama Loses Beer Buddy:

“The webzine edited by Henry Louis Gates Jr. has published an article suggesting that blacks not be so emotionally invested in President Obama.

It’s written by Michael Arceneaux and entitled ‘Breaking Up With Boyfriend Barack’. It appears in today’s (Aug. 16) edition of The Root.

Arceneaux notes that (official) unemployment for African-Americans is double that of whites at 15.9 percent.

He points out that Obama’s approval rate among blacks is down to 85 percent.

Gates was the famous participant at the ‘beer summit‘ held in July 24, 2009 which came after Obama made uninformed comments in defense of Gates who had been charged with disorderly conduct after police found him trying to break into his Cambridge, Mass. home from which he locked himself out, and he threw a fit upon being asked to identify himself.

President Urges Voter to Rebuke Republicans for Thwarting His Will

August 13, 2011 Leave a comment

On the heels of the nation’s first ever credit downgrade, an angry President Obama embarked upon a campaign tour aimed at focusing voters’ wrath at what he dubbed the GOP’s “economic terrorism.”

“Opposition to my leadership imperils the very existence of the nation,” Obama asserted. “Voters must send a message to all the members of Congress that refusal to accommodate themselves to my program of transformational change won’t be tolerated.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he would be willing to consider accommodating the president’s program if he knew what it was. “The most frustrating thing about the debt-ceiling negotiations is that the president never put forward a single new idea for reducing our nation’s debt,” Boehner complained. “Even now, after our credit rating has been downgraded, all he has to offer is more of the same wasteful spending that got us into the mess.”

House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor (R-Va) called the president’s push for higher taxes and more regulations a recipe for disaster. “Both of these policies raise the cost of doing business,” Cantor pointed out. “If it costs more to do business, less business will be done. Less business being done means fewer jobs and less tax revenue. This would only worsen the country’s economic and financial problems.”

The president warned voters “not to fall for the Republicans’ ‘siren song’ of economic growth as the answer to all our ills. Are jobs really more important than a cleaner environment? Should prosperity be preferred to a broader equality? Shouldn’t we all be willing to bear the burdens of shared sacrifice for a future that is cleaner and fairer?”

Sources Say • Tax pledge may be a conspiracy

August 6, 2011 Leave a comment

Are the members of Congress who signed no-new taxes pledges engaging in a criminal conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States because President Obama is black? That’s the theory put forward by Calvin O. L. Henry, president of the Oregon Assembly for Black Affairs, in a July 5 letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

In his letter, Henry requests that the U.S. Department of Justice open a criminal investigation into the 274 Republican and three Democrats who have signed the pledges circulated by anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and his organization, Americans for Tax Reform.

“The undue influence of the Americans for Tax Reform and Grover Norquist and the signed pledges by 274 of the 289 members of the United States Congress reveal a sinister and open conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution of the United States by trying to cause President Obama to fail,” wrote Henry, who describes himself as a black American who served as an elections official in the Oregon secretary of state’s office.

Fox News Poll: More (Most) Say Obama Administration Making Economy Worse

July 21, 2011 Leave a comment

Obama’s overall performance as president, and by double-digit margins they not only think the economy is getting worse, but also that it’s the Obama administration’s fault.

Some 45 percent of voters approve of the job President Obama is doing, while 46 percent disapprove, making this his lowest approval for the year so far. Previously, the president’s job rating was split evenly 46-46 (June 26-28, 2011).

A year ago, 43 percent approved and 48 percent disapproved of the president’s performance (13-14 July 2010).

These are just some of the findings from a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Approval of the president among Democrats currently stands at 76 percent, which is just one percentage-point higher than his record low 75 percent approval among the party faithful (December 2010).

Among independents, 44 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove of Obama’s job performance.

Voters are more than twice as likely to say the economy is getting worse than to say it is getting better. The new poll found 58 percent of voters think the economy is getting worse. That’s up from 52 percent who felt that way last year and 42 percent in 2009.

Last week, more than 70 days after President Obama sent our military to attack Libya without a congressional declaration of war, the House of Representatives finally voted on two resolutions attempting to rein in the president.

This debate was long overdue, as polls show Americans increasingly are frustrated by congressional inaction. According to a CNN poll last week, 55 percent of the American people believe that Congress, not the president, should have the final authority to decide whether the U.S. should continue its military mission in Libya. Yet for more than 70 days Congress has ignored its constitutional obligations and allowed the president to usurp its authority.

In my last post, I suggested we need to attack the structures that enable the Imperial Presidency (History Repeats Itself).

The keyboard was not yet cool from my fingers when our current president made a public declaration of his arrogance:

In a statement issued Friday night, President Obama took issue with some provisions in the budget bill – and in one case simply says he will not abide by it.

Last week the White House and congressional Democrats and Republicans were involved in intense negotiations over not only the size of the budget for the remainder of the FY2011 budget, and spending cuts within that budget, but also several GOP “riders,” or policy provisions attached to the bill.

One rider – Section 2262 — de-funds certain White House adviser positions – or “czars.” The president in his signing statement declares that he will not abide by it.

“Gunny G: It’s a universal joke that PC has played on us; and now we’re too embarrassed to admit this too…”

November 7, 2010 2 comments

Most of us remember well Hans Christian Anderson’s delightful tale of the emperor who searched far and wide for the very finest clothes, suits of golden fabric and silver threads, clothes so perfect, so exquisite that they can be seen and appreciated only by those fit for the positions they hold. Only those operating above their skills and the hopelessly stupid fail to see the stunning colors, the shimmering waves of color, the lustrous styling.

Just as in Lake Woebegone, where all the children are above average, so to are the Emperor’s courtiers, his staff, the academics and elite of the day truly extraordinary. Each of them sees the beauty of the cloth, the perfection of the fit, the beauty of the artistry adorning their emperor. The appreciation spreads, almost virally, driven by the repetition and strength of the adoring comments. It becomes a universal enthusiasm of early 19th century Copenhagen society.

The emperor, being an incredibly intelligent man and certain of his own abilities as the leader of his people, is wildly enthusiastic about the weavers’ magic and awestruck by the look created by the fabric hanging on his magnificent body. Fevered with pride, he creates an opportunity to parade his sartorial and intellectual brilliance for the appreciation of all his citizens.

President Obama, 2010 In Anderson’s tale, a young boy breaks the spell of the crowd massed for the emperor’s parade, “But he has nothing on at all! The emperor has no clothes.” Soon, the cry is taken up by all the others who, reassured that their neighbors, not all of whom could be incompetent or hopelessly stupid, obviously saw what they themselves could finally admit. Their own eyes weren’t lying; the emperor was completely nude. The emperor, caught between embarrassments, recognized that he was in fact, stark naked for all to see. To save face before his subjects, he chose to carry on without hesitation, acting as though nothing at all was wrong.

President Obama stands before the American people today, wearing nothing more than a teleprompter script.

The question is, does he recognize his own nakedness? Is he attempting to carry on to save face? Or is he completely mesmerized by his own golden words and silver phrases, sadly unable to see that he stands before us uncovered by anything of substance even as the crowd begins to recognize that he has no clothes?

Our President has nothing on at all.

Priority One for Republicans

November 2, 2010 Leave a comment

For newly empowered congressional Republicans, priority one must be an extension of the Bush tax cuts. There should be enough votes not only from a new Republican majority, but also from some of the decimated and dispirited and even newly elected Democrats. If President Obama is smart, he won’t veto the bill.If the tax cuts are allowed to expire, everyone who gets a paycheck and has taxes withheld is going to see less money in the “net” column starting January 1. has published some calculations. It reports that, according to the Tax Institute at H&R Block, “for a married couple earning $80,000 a year, increased taxes would drain $221.48 in withholding from a semi-monthly paycheck. Married individuals earning $240,000 a year” just under the $250,000 standard President Obama defines as “rich” “would lose $557.78 to withholding in a single semi-monthly paycheck.” Double these figures for a month and multiply by 12 and you quickly see the additional drain on the economy at a time of anemic 2 percent growth.

Dems’ Collapse Will Also Doom Obama Agenda

In a radio interview Monday on Univision, President Obama chided Latinos who “sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.'”Quite a uniter, urging Hispanics to exact political revenge on their enemies — presumably, for example, the near-60% of Americans who support the new Arizona immigration law.

This from a president who won’t even use “enemies” to describe an Iranian regime that is helping kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. This from a man who rose to prominence thunderously declaring that we were not blue states or red states, not black America or white America or Latino America — but the United States of America.This is how the great post-partisan, post-racial, New Politics presidency ends — not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a desperate election-eve plea for ethnic retribution. Nice.Yet press secretary Robert Gibbs‘ dismay is reserved for Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and the “disappointing” negativity of his admission that “the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

“McConnell, you see, is supposed to say that he will try very hard to work with the president after the election.But it is blindingly clear that nothing of significance will be enacted. Over the next two years, Republicans will not be able to pass anything of importance to them — such as repealing ObamaCare — because of the presidential veto.

President Obama Admits He’s Become Part of the Problem

October 28, 2010 Leave a comment

…It’s no surprise that trust in Congress has fallen to record lows on President Obama’s watch. To force his job-killing agenda through Congress, Washington Democrats have written bills behind closed doors, cut backroom deals, attempted to manipulate the rules so they could circumvent the will of the people, and ignored their responsibility to write a budget. President Obama got what he wanted, but Americans didn’t get the change – or the hope – they were promised.

With the Pledge to America, a governing agenda built by listening to the people, Republicans are offering a clear plan to deliver an open, accountable, and transparent Congress: We will “read the bill” and require legislation be publicly available at least 3 days before voting on it. We will adhere to the Constitution and require every bill to cite its specific Constitutional Authority. We will ensure an open and bipartisan debate on all spending bills. We will advance legislative issues one at a time and end the practice of massive bills that address unrelated issues.

Chuck Norris – Obama: Muslim missionary? Part 1

August 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Two hundred years later, President Obama has already denied America’s rich Judeo-Christian heritage before the eyes and ears of other countries, as he publicly declared in Turkey on April 6, 2009, for the whole world to hear:

“We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.

“Then there was Cairo in June 2009, when President Obama vowed to establish “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world …

I also know civilization’s debt to Islam. … I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story. … And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. … So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed.

“He goes on to say, “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t.

And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
