Obama Busted

After FBI Director James Comey’s recitation of the many crimes, as specified in the Espionage Act,  Sec. of State Hillary Clinton committed, then declared that there would be no prosecution, many Americans were left scratching their heads for a moment. Then, it was clear that the fix was in. Now we know why.

To go ahead with charges against Hillary, the President himself would have to be brought into it because he too violated the same statute.

How do we know this? We can thank WikiLeaks for exposing the evidence. And as usual, the Obama administration is calling out Russia for trying to influence our election process. The Russians are not amused that the administration is making them their scapegoat. Another example of Obama’s recklessness in foreign relations, he’s playing Russian Roulette with the wrong people.

The mainstream media and the administration are indistinguishable today, which is why they publicize Obama’s accusations and ignore the content of the emails and the fact that many (33,000?) were from him under an alias, dating back to the beginning of his administration.



Regardless if Russia had anything to do with it (Maybe I did it, yeah, I did it. I hacked her server and sent it to WikiLeaks, Russia, China, Iran, and N. Korea, just to be safe.), bringing about transparency from the most corrupt administration in my lifetime is not an assault on our democracy, as Hillary claims. It’s about keeping elected officials honest when dealing with policies and the American people. She, her party, and the Obama administration is the assault on democracy and our system of justice. And must be stopped November 8, 2016.

September Jobs Picture, Sad

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the September Employment Situation looks like this.

All you will hear about it from Secretary Clinton and President Obama, and their spokespeople in the media, is three blurbs . . .

  • Unemployment rate 5.0,
  • 156,000 jobs created,
  • and nn of consecutive months of job growth.

Not sure how many number of consecutive months it has been, but it doesn’t matter, because it amounts to a net job loss.

To put the numbers you hear and see from the administration into perspective, realize that a monthly job creation of 250,000 is considered to be a break-even number when retirements, deaths, and population growth (births, immigration) are factored.

For September 2016, 156,000 jobs were created. Far short of break-even. Aside from that, and even worse, 284,000 jobs were lost in September. Of the 156,000 jobs created, 30,000 of them were in the foodservice industry.

Compared to last year, 1.8 million people were not counted. Of that group, 553,000 of those were in September 2016. Any thinking person might wonder how the employment rate can be 5% (Table A) when there are more people not working? Fair question. But the media never worries about that. The way the BLS arrives at that low percent is because they don’t count the millions of people who haven’t been working so long that their unemployment benefits have run out. They didn’t die. They’re still unemployed. If they were included, the REAL unemployment rate is 9.7 %. It’s called the U-6, (Table A-15).

When you dig deeper into the statistics, you come across a “MULTIPLE JOBHOLDERS” category, (Table A-16). These are people who have a second (or more) jobs because they have to and are able to, just to support themselves and their family. That number increased by 549,000 for Sept 2016 over LY. The dirty little secret about the multiple jobholders stat is, the second or third job that they get is counted as a “job created.” It’s still one person. Keep that in mind when you hear Barack or Hillary tout the number of jobs created. Makes me wince at their dishonesty when I hear them.

The Labor Participation Rate remains at 62.9%. That is the level it was under the Great Malaise administration of Jimmy Carter.

This is Obamanomics. We are living the consequences of Obamanomics. It’s more like, Trickle Up Poverty.

If you think it’s time for a different approach to job creation, one that will actually create more high-paying jobs, your choice in November can only be Donald Trump.

Not The News Today

What’s not in the news today, but should be? What we are witnessing here is a Democrat/Media attack on Trump like they did to Mitt Romney four years ago. Harry Reid alleged that Romney didn’t pay is taxes (when he did), and his dog on vacation fiasco.  That was front page, above the fold for weeks. Nothing illegal, like Trump, but an attempt to take down the candidate and dispirit his supporters from voting. In the latter, it’s not just to attack Trump, this includes half of America along with him. The “irredeemable deplorables.”

Let’s begin with the illegal publication of Donald Trump’s tax return. No one is accusing Trump of anything illegal. Trump followed the tax law by writing off a business loss.

  • You can’t find a word about the illegality of the IRS, or whoever else, for leaking the information.
  • You can’t find a word about the New York Times breaking the law by publishing it.
  • And, you won’t hear a peep from Obama’s Justice Department to be the least bit curious in enforcing equal protection under the law. To the contrary, his record consists of using the IRS as a weapon against political opponents.
  • You won’t find one article examining how Hillary Clinton made $22 million by giving speeches to donors on Wall Street, for speeches she won’t release the transcripts of.

Trump had a business loss in his Atlantic City casinos in 1995. That’s when the casino industry in Atlantic City started taking a dive. From which it has never fully recovered. Consequently, his corporation lost $916 million. Hillary Clinton uses that to denigrate Trump’s business acumen. She hasn’t a clue. Trump is among a small league of  business leaders who can take a $916 million loss as a bump in the road.

Current tax law allows you to carryover a large loss over however many years the size of the loss dictates. Trump lost $916 million of his own money. Only so much per year is allowed to be written off. In this case, it took 18 years.

So what has Hillary Clinton lost?

  • Four Americans including an Ambassador.
  • 33,000 incriminating e-mails
  • Broken laws on national security
  • Destroyed evidence under subpoena
  • $6 Billion of taxpayers’ money while Secretary of State

If a carryover write-off would be available for that, Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have to pay taxes for five generations.

Bottom line, know what you’re seeing and don’t let it work on you. Staying home this election is not an option.

The Campaign Tax Discussion

What an opportune time to talk about tax reform, thanks to the ft-how-federal-income-taxes-were-distributed-in-2014_04282015-lgClinton campaign and their publicist, the New York Times. Accusing Trump for not paying “his fair share.” To chastise Trump for having to hire a team of accountants and lawyers just to file his taxes, shows what an abortion of tax code Americans are saddled with. For example . .

  • The top 1 percent of earners (incomes in excess of $615,000) are paying nearly half — 45.7 percent — of individual income taxes for tax year 2014.
  • The top 20 percent, with incomes above $134,300, pay nearly 84 percent of all federal income taxes for tax year 2014.
  • The growing complexity of the U.S. tax code has led to large compliance costs for households and businesses.
  • Americans will spend more than 8.9 billion hours complying with IRS tax filing requirements in 2016.
  • Put in dollar terms, the 8.9 billion hours needed to comply with the tax code computes to $409 billion each year in lost productivity, or greater than the gross product of 36 states.

That’s not how much taxes were paid. That’s how much it cost us, as a country, just to comply with the tax laws to file our taxes.

Under the FairTax plan, that’s $409 Billion per year that stays in our pocket, FOR FREE. Under the FairTax, you don’t “file” your taxes any more. There’s nothing to file under a consumption-based tax system. And April 15th is just another day.

So Hillary and her lemmings want to paint Trump as a tax cheat when he follows the tax law. Legally spreading a single loss in 1995 of $916 million dollars over 18 years. (Must be nice to have a loss like that to be just a bump in the road.) Unlike Al Sharpton, Trump did not break the tax law. They are great at name-calling on phony accusations.

Well guess what? Come to find out, the New York Times didn’t pay any taxes either, for 2014! And on top of that, got a “tax refund” of $3.5 million (of taxpayer money), even though they had a pre-tax profit of $29.9 million. How do you like the tax code now?

But when it comes to one of their own, like Rev. Al Sharpton, who in fact did not pay his income and payroll taxes, who has tax liens on him for over $3 million, well, he’s a frequent VIP in The White House.  Go figure!

Nowadays, Bill Clinton and Al Sharpton will tell you the hot money seems to be made in Charities and Foundations. They don’t pay taxes, especially when you can donate to yourself. Two different worlds, two different standards.

Hillary’s Campus Rally

Hillary shared the stage with the Bern yesterday “to appeal for youth votes.” Worried about shrinking support from millennials (now the same as ‘college-age’), she echoed the “free stuff” theme of making public colleges tuition-free, for families earning less than $125,000.

Odd that the campus rally wasn’t open to the students without an invitation. Attendees described many of them as middle-aged, members of local Democratic organizations, or invited by the campaign. Phony much?

Although Sanders lost to Clinton, he consistently drew younger voters to his side with promises to take on Wall Street and make college less expensive.

Hillary’s version is not as bold when it comes to taking on her major donors, Wall Street. Speaking to student debt, she’s not talking about forgiveness, she’s talking about “those who already have student debt to refinance.”

Having lived through the real estate crash caused by Fannie / Freddie and bailing out Wall Street (which they continue to do), and what Obamacare has done to health care costs and the health insurance industry, managed by politics and not economics, what Hillary has in mind is just more of the same.

You can’t expect for the people who created the problem to now know how to fix it.  Like Trump says, “follow the money.”

Two Faces Of Hillary Clinton

Critics are saying that this video of Hillary is the equivalent of the Michael Dukakis or Howard Dean campaign moment. I’m not so sure about that, sounds like wishful thinking to me. But it does expose Hillary in other ways.

She is in a studio, with no audience. Her audience is labor union members a thousand miles away in Las Vegas. Compare her demeanor in this video to the other studio video below. Her animation is outstanding. Like how she changes her voice and cadence when speaking to a Black audience to sound “Black,”  Hillary raises her shrill voice as though she’s in a stadium on inauguration day.

It’s also clear she feels she is entitled to the throne, or rather, Oval Office. Not because she has a positive record, but because it’s her turn. So she acts angry, yelling about why this race isn’t in the bag for her.  (no pun intended) Angry at them for her poor position. Of course, it couldn’t be because of her.

Comparing her record to Trump’s record when it comes to jobs would be great. He has created thousands of them. She hasn’t created one. What she has done is cater to special interests and private enterprise donors like the labor union she is addressing here.   Using government (aka taxpayers) to pick winners and losers in the marketplace (in this case labor) is one reason Trump resonates with the folks.

Hillary’s focus is on “working people.” Those are the ones labor unions depend on because they can’t get dues from the 92 million people who are out of work. Big Labor is more than just pay for play where Democrats are concerned. That symbiosis is a well-oiled money laundering scheme.

And here is the other face of Hillary Clinton.

I’ve never heard of this guy, but that’s not saying much. He’s pretty funny though, at least in this interview. I thought it was one of those videos that were patched from two or more appearances from other people, but since Hillary’s campaign put this out, it seems to be a legit one-on-one exchange.

Obama’s Legacy, Of Failure

President Obama made his rounds around the world again, posing for pictures to put in his Presidential Library. After returning home, he spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus at their annual dinner party. His attachment them was two things. Both central to him. His skin color, and his legacy. And that’s it. It’s all about him.

What he’s concerned about is his legacy as the first Black President who failed miserably. He succeeded only in the thing he set out to do. Which is to fundamentally transform America by managing its decline, in so many ways.

Never mind that he made things worse, not better. But he is in good company among presidents. There have been White presidents who were lousy, or some form of ineffective. But his ego won’t accept he failed to do what he told people (Blacks included) what he was going to do “for them.” So at the CBC dinner, his community organizing persona comes out, shaming Blacks into supporting the candidate for President who will continue his legacy of failure. “C’mon bro. We look alike, so vote for her,” says the bumper sticker on the back of his limo.

In 2008, had he been honest with Americans and told them what he was going to do, instead of what they wanted to hear, Hillary Clinton would have been the President, not him.


Clinton-Obama Give ‘Aid and Comfort’

I don’t know. You’ll have to decide if Hillary Clinton is nuts or just crazy?

You know what “aid and comfort” to terrorists (that would be Iran) is? Giving billions of dollars in cash to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terror in the world. Hamas and Hezbollah really appreciate it. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) should be prosecuted for it.

She had a 4 question (from 4 female reporters)10 minute “presser” on the tarmac. What this show is about is blaming Trump (candidate for 1 year) for the terrorist attacks over the last 7 years. They’re not about to accept responsibility for their incompetence in fighting ‘Islamic terrorism.’ A term that they can not even say. And the reason they can’t say it is because they haven’t a clue how to stop it.

Clinton’s “Medical Episode”

Talk about Karma. Four years to the day that Hillary Clinton lied to the public about Benghazi in advance of a presidential election, she has a seizure and loses her shoe in public. Still lying in advance of an election.

She didn’t pass out because of the heat. First of all, there wasn’t any heat. To the point though, when you pass out, you’re out, and you lay the victim down. That’s not what we see here.

Who’s unfit again? Trump does 2-3 cities a day. Hillary is lucky to do that in a week. Lacks the stamina to run the country, let alone attend a 9/11 ceremony. The White House is not an assisted living center, which is something Hillary Clinton should be looking at.

Obama-Clinton-Media, New Axis Powers

Labor Day has passed. Now the 2016 campaign season begins to heat up. This is the time the candidates traditionally take the gloves off, so to speak.

Of the two candidates, Donald Trump has made themes of his platform in seperate campaign appearances. Laying out his vision on, national security, the economy and jobs in general and in impoverished Democrat strongholds known as the inner cities, immigration and illegal immigration, education and school choice, safe neighborhoods, and infrastructure improvements.

What we hear from Hillary Clinton is attacks on Trump not being qualified or “fit” for the job. Main reason for that is, she has nothing positive about her record to brag about. So, she assumes the disaster of the Obama administration and calls to expand on that. And that should scare everybody.

A correction is needed. There are 3 entities in this race, Trump, Clinton, and the Media. Trump really has two opponents if you look at it that way. And you really do have to look at it that way, because if anyone with an R behind their name, Black or White, did any of the things that either Obama or Clinton have done, they would have resigned, been impeached, or prosecuted years ago. The media would have made sure of that.

With the moral integrity expected of a President, Richard Nixon resigned rather than face impeachment over the erasure of 18 minutes from a cassette tape that recorded events in the Oval Office. All the news, every day, was big, bold, and above the fold over that Watergate Scandal.

To contrast, here is an abbreviated list of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama accomplishments. The record they have to run on. And they get a pass from the media every time . . .


  • For politicization of the NLRB that the Supreme Court shot down 9-0.
  • For politicization of the IRS by targeting and denying conservative PACs tax exempt status leading up to the election.
  • For using the DOJ to harass and tap phones and email records of reporter James Rosen.
  • For AG Eric Holder’s plan to pass automatic and semi-automatic rifles to Mexican drug cartels, Fast & Furious, with no ability to track their use except to recover them at crime scenes when our border agents are murdered with them.
  • For the 9/11/2012 attack in Benghazi where our Ambassador and 3 other Americans were abandoned and left to die during a firefight that lasted 8 hours.
  • For lying to the world, the American people, and to the survivors of our 4 Americans who died there, about all aspects of the Benghazi attack before, during, after, and that the reason for it was an Internet video.
  • For the propping up of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • For screwing up the Iraq pull-out, paving the way for ISIS.
  • For screwing up Afghanistan by announcing to the enemy when we were leaving.
  • For allowing a totally porous southern border.
  • For lying under oath to Congress investigating e-mail servers and national security.
  • For obstructing justice by destroying (emails & hardware) evidence under subpoena, in national security e-mail scandal.
  • For obstructing justice by destroying (emails & hardware) evidence after receiving a Preservation Order, in national security e-mail scandal.
  • For subverting economic sanctions placed by Congress on Iran by secretly sending billions in cash, all in foreign currency, to them.

That President Obama has such contempt for this country, its founding, and the Constitution should come as no surprise. He set out to, in his words, “fundamentally change America.”  His hubris in doing so would make him, in his own Marxist mind, the new Founding Father, replacing the real ones. And that can not happen if one follows the Constitution and the rule of law.

Charles Carroll, one of the Founding Fathers, saw the danger of a tyrannical government and put it this way . . .

Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.

Our Founding Fathers put their faith in the American people, to uphold the rule of law in the protection of freedom and liberty and, to keep the government in check to not become what it has already become.

Ronald Reagan put it this way . . .

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

This election season defines the tipping point. The tipping point in fidelity to the Constitution, the tipping point in free-market capitalism, and the tipping point in the relationship of the people and the government. Which will prevail, the intended design of the people putting limits on the government, or the government putting limits on the people?
