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.

Debate 2016: Iran Nuclear Deal

What Hillary Clinton said in response to Donald Trump’s comment about the Iran nuclear deal being a disaster, was one of the highlights, or lowlights, of the night. Given the magnitude for disaster that nuclear weapons pose, so much was said by Clinton that contradicts her claim to being fit for duty as our President.

Speaking of Iran and the “Deal,” Hillary Clinton said . . .

“They had built covert facilities.”


Barack Obama, herself, and John Kerry “got a deal that put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program.”

False. First of all, the so-called “lid” is temporary (10 yrs.), after that they can do whatever the hell they want. The “lid” is gone. The deal also presumes that Iran won’t cheat during that 10 yr. timeframe.  From the country that “had built covert facilities,” why would we think Iran might cheat? They’ll still have their nuclear weapons whether they cheat or not.

“Nuclear weapons pose the number one threat we face in the world. And it becomes particularly threatening if terrorists ever get their hands on nuclear weapons.”

Iran is the largest State sponsor of terror and terrorists in the world. Led by Mullahs who chant ‘death to America, the Great Satan’ and death to Israel. “Threatening” (to quote Hillary Clinton) to us, Israel, and our allies in the Middle East. The Iran Deal paves the way for them to achieve the nuclear status they want. And it isn’t for producing electricity. This deal is the nuclear proliferation that she claims she does not want. In other words, it’s not good if Japan or South Korea have them, but it’s just fine if Iran does?

And here’s the kicker, the Deal was . . .

“Very successful in gaining access to Iranian facilities that we never had before.”

This is very telling, in how weak a deal it is just so President Obama, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton can say that they made one. It’s from the very same perspective that they say our Southern border has never been as secure as it is today.

They caved to Iran on “anytime anyplace” inspections. That was one of the conditions Obama bragged about. (Remember him bragging about Obamacare, none of which has come to fruition?) But true to form, Iran stuck to their guns, and Kerry caved to the point that, not only are there no anytime anyplace inspections, but there are nuclear facilities that are “off limits” to independent inspectors. What could go wrong with a deal like that?

And who will stop Iran from using their nuclear weapons capacity? Won’t be the United States. According to the deal, we have to protect Iran’s nuclear facilities. According to the deal that she, Kerry, and Obama have made, if Israel finds it necessary to act on their own for their own national security, it will be the U.S. who will protect Iran’s nuclear facilities. That means fighting against our ally and protecting this terrorist State. And that makes sense to who? To Barack Obama, who’s mission is building his legacy, even if it is fake, built on lies and naiveté.

Continuing to lie to the American people, like her former boss does, when the American people are trying to decide on their next president, is Hillary Clinton’s most “qualifying” moral trait.

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?

Merkel, Stinging Defeat

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “Christian Democrats Party” was handed a “sobering defeat.” Beaten into third place, in what was the first of five regional votes before a national election expected next September.  Turning in an all-time low result was a “stinging defeat” for Merkel in her home district.

She was beaten by a relatively new political party, the Alternative for Germany (AfD), that campaigned against her open border policies. Policies that have hurt, if not transformed, German life in the same way it has affected the EU in general.

Not surprisingly, the media characterizes the AfD, not as pro-Germany, nationalist, or populist. Not as anti-Merkel. But as anti-immigrant and anti-Islam. Same media. Different continent.

AfD party chair, Frauke Petry, described Sunday’s result as a blow to Angela Merkel. “Now it is our responsibility to make politics for the people. The people no longer trust the old establishment parties to do so,” Petry said.

Whether this election or the AfD signals a shift in German politics remains to be seen. But it does have the same organic feel like the Tea Party in the U.S. or Brexit in the U.K.

Why I’m Voting For Trump

What a disappointing campaign season this is. Not for the lack of media bias, lies and obfuscation, but for all the political noise that is keeping Hillary Clinton and her record off of the front page. Have you noticed that her poll numbers rise the less she is heard? It is the reason she hasn’t had a real news conference in 249 days.

One thing about Democrats and the media you can count on is this. They will tell you who they fear the most by the focus and intensity of their attacks.  And it is unquestionably, Donald J. Trump.

There’s a curious contradiction in the campaign coverage going on. All we hear from the media is that the Trump campaign is going down. Trump’s ratings are falling and, he should drop out of the race, and Republicans should pick someone else. (reassuring to know that the media cares  so much for Republicans that they are giving them free advice)  If all that is true, or if they believed what they were saying, one would think that they would be happy, ignoring Trump and talking about all of Hillary’s accomplishments. Oh wait . . .

What’s different? Why does Trump get the support he does? What people need to understand about him is, he’s not a politician. And he’s not a community organizer hell-bent on fundamentally changing the country. He’s a successful CEO of a multinational private company.  And like all successful CEO’s, he’s a problem solver who knows how to get things done with minimal cost. And, keep the relationship between the people and the government the way the founding fathers intended it to be.

There’s nothing this country needs more than a pruning of needless and ineffective bureaucracies that, contribute to a bloated government (taxpayer’s overhead) and, are holding back our economy. You’ve heard politicians pledge to rid the government of waste, fraud, and abuse from the time you began listening to them.  And no one, not even the “watchdog media,” can point to where that ever happened. What has the politicians in both parties so unscrewed this time is that, in addition to that, he’s going to do the pruning that needs to be done to make government and their power smaller by transferring the power to the people, where it started and where it belongs.

Because he, as a CEO, has done it before, Trump is equipped, and committed, to actually doing this for our country. He calls it “Make America Great Again.”

Came across this in social media today, with a couple of enhancements from yours truly.  Suitable for spreading around.

Trump Derails Convention

If you’re wondering why the Democratic National Convention has their shorts in a wad over Donald Trump, it can be explained very easily. With his single 1-hour press conference yesterday morning, he totally hijacked their convention news cycle, drawing focus back to Hillary Clinton’s “extremely careless”email setup during her tenure as Sec. of State.

He began the press conference pointing out the slavishness of the reporters for the Democrat nominee. How is it that she has not had a press conference in 235 days and no one here seems to mind? It’s obvious. She can’t handle a press conference without pre-screened questions. And she is ready to be our president?

Listen to what Donald Trump said about Russia and emails, and the context it was said. Then recall what Leon Panetta said to millions of people watching the Democratic National Convention, and what other Democrats, and their Media, have said that he said.

Former Sec of Defense Leon Panetta:

Donald Trump, who wants to be president of the United States, is asking one of our adversaries to engage in hacking or intelligence efforts against the United States of America to affect an election.”

That these people will lie to advance an agenda, or to win The White House, is nothing new. To quote Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, as Americans, “that’s not who we are.” But it is who they are.

As for the New York Times and their soul brothers in mainstream media, and the Left in general, they have no sense of humor. Not until the last line of this article do they admit it.

Video short cuts:

  • 1:45, Trump first brings up the subject of email hacking.
  • 5:00 First question from media. He “hopes” they do have the 33,000 emails she deleted. (past tense)
  • 34:00 “It’s probably not Russia. Nobody knows.”
  • 36:50 If Russia has those emails, he’d like to see them.
  • 39:25 Question about Putin, “he probably has” them.

The M&M Distraction

Michelle Obama once said “I want a better future for my children.” Now nobody else can say that? Melania Trump said she was proud of America and, to be an American, BEFORE her husband was nominated. She didn’t say “For the first time in my adult lifetime I am proud of my country,” AFTER her husband was nominated.

That portions of the speech was plagiarized is not as significant to me as what was said. It is the definition of the American Dream. Anyone have a copyright on that? Come to think of it, from that perspective, everyone owns that copyright.

My point here is, Melania has lived it. The significant difference between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump is, one didn’t believe what she was saying, said it for political purposes to appeal to middle America, and the other actually believed what she said.

Hillary’s polling numbers improve when she’s not speaking in public, not in the news. Where the media is concerned, any distraction that takes the focus off of Hillary Clinton is a worthy cause. Call it a campaign contribution.
