I am President Barack Obama’s college classmate from Columbia University, Class of ’83. Back in 1981 when my Columbia classmates heard my hero President Ronald Reagan had been shot, they erupted in joy. They celebrated by jumping up and down, cheering, hugging, and giving each other high-fives. They screamed, “YES! Reagan is dead. They got the bastard!” I witnessed it all, first-hand. My radical leftist classmates thought a conservative legend was dead and this was cause for celebration. I remember thinking, “they are celebrating like it’s New Year’s Eve.” Afterall that’s what you do on New Year’s- celebrate!
That memory inspired me to write a column celebrating Obama as we remember 2014 and enter the new year of 2015. Let’s not rehash the bad stuff…the disastrous stuff…the tragic stuff…the decline and perhaps even death of America at the hands of a radical Big Brother tyrant. That’s not the way to celebrate New Year’s. Let’s look at the bright side. You know- the glass is half full.
You might ask “What is the positive side of the Obama presidency?” Well there are a few groups that should celebrate.
For my fellow constitutional and second amendment patriots, Obama is the greatest gun salesman in history. Over 70 million guns have been purchased since Obama took office. This man opens his mouth, reads from the teleprompter, and INSTANTLY Americans are inspired to buy all-time record quantities of guns and ammo. If you’re a fan of the second amendment (or a gun dealer), Obama has been the answer to your prayers.
For my fellow fiscal conservatives and capitalists, Obama is the greatest gold salesman ever. Conservatives love gold. Gold after all is the antidote to a debt crisis and lack of confidence in a reckless or incompetent government. That’s why record sums of gold were bought during the past 6 years. Central bankers worldwide bought more gold in one recent year than in half a century (since 1964). Fiscal conservatives (and gold dealers) rejoice. Obama is a walking billboard for God, guns, and GOLD!
Obama is also the greatest thing to ever happen to print shop owners. While the rest of us are struggling to keep our heads above water, print shop owners can’t keep up with the demand for “Going Out of Business” and “Home For Sale by Bank” signs. And what about all the protest signs funded by communist groups announcing “What Do We Want? DEAD COPS.” Print shop owners Rejoice! You’ve never had it so good.
And then there are “English as a Second Language” teachers. There may be very few good jobs left in Obama’s America, but if you speak both English and Spanish, the sky is the limit. With the border wide open and Obama announcing amnesty for illegals, celebrate if you are a teacher of “English as a Second Language.” You have the most in-demand job in America for decades to come. Unfortunately, demand for prison guards may soon be even more in demand.
Obama is the greatest thing to ever happen to government bureaucrats. The future is bright if your goal is to sit in a windowless office handing out checks for welfare, food stamps, disability and unemployment, while complaining you are overworked and underpaid. With almost 20 percent of all Americans on food stamps alone, there’s enough work for you to last a lifetime…or at least 20 years, until you retire at age 45 and collect an obscene pension for the next 40 to 50 years for not working.
And what about the boom in basements! With Obama and his socialist cabal in control for another two years, basements are the new hip living space for young adults. At this moment 31 percent of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 live with their parents. Obama’s high taxes and massive regulations guarantee millions of college graduates will either stay unemployed, or underemployed in low wage jobs, forcing them to live in mommy and daddy’s basement for years to come. Basements are no longer lonely dusty places to store old furniture. In the age of Obama, they are where you store your 30 year-old unemployed children.
Pharmaceutical companies are celebrating. A record 30 million Americans are dependent on anti-depressants. There would be many more, except millions of depressed Americans self-medicate with alcohol. If you sell drugs or booze, give a shout out this New Year’s to Obama, the greatest salesman for your products ever!
And then, of course there are the cop-haters who are celebrating. To think you used to be misunderstood, hated pariahs. Today you are in favor- with Obama praising you for hating cops. He encourages you to protest, loot, burn and act like exactly what you are- idiots who have no interest in getting a job. But, no worry, this New Year’s you can come out of the closet, celebrate, and be openly YOU!
Unfortunately the rest of us are hiding in the closet, because you’re on the streets.
If you’re a radical Muslim terrorist, or just someone who sympathizes with radical Muslims (i.e. a Democrat) – CELEBRATE! Obama is the best thing to ever happened to you. Under Obama, America has become a politically correct shell of its former self. Rest easy. No more “enhanced interrogations.” And if you’re caught, you’ll live like a king at Guantanamo, provided with a Koran, prayer rug, religiously approved food, basketball courts, and expensive lawyers. Then once you are rested up, you’ll be released back to the battlefield, ready to again cut off heads and slaughter women and little children. Obama is the best thing that ever happened to you.
If you’re Fidel and Raul Castro, celebrate Obama. By opening relations and trade, Obama saved Cuba from economic collapse and the certain death of communism. He asked for nothing in return. You get to remain a communist nation, jail your political opposition, steal the people’s income, while enjoying the prosperity that comes from doing business with America’s biggest companies. Celebrate Obama- the savior of communism- as we enter 2015!
Finally we come to Vladamir Putin. He’s celebrating “like it’s 1999” this New Year’s. God handed him “the gift of a lifetime” in the form of Barack Obama. Obama pulled off a miracle for Putin and the Russian people. He made your bankrupt, decaying country look like a world power again. He gave your demoralized military swagger again. Obama managed to do something even Putin couldn’t do- put Mother Russia in the driver’s seat and America in the back seat.
The only question is…is this a coincidence, or was this Obama’s plan all along?
Yes, there’s certainly a lot to celebrate as we enter 2015. Unfortunately, it’s the enemies of America who are doing most of the celebrating.
For the rest of us, it’s two long years until we can celebrate an “Obama-Free America.”
The New York Times recently published the home address of Police Officer Darren Wilson and his pregnant police officer wife. Once they were publicly ridiculed for this reckless action, the paper took down the story, but inexplicably left up the name of Darren Wilson’s street address.
Is the New York Times trying to incite murder? How could any respectable journalist publish the address of a police officer, knowing there are thousands of violent criminals who’d like to kill him? Why would a newspaper purposely make Officer Wilson a “marked man?” If someone kills Officer Wilson or his pregnant police officer wife…or mistakenly kills an entire family living in the home next door…isn’t the New York Times liable? Isn’t this a billion dollar lawsuit? Have liberals lost their minds (and their judgement)?
This time they’ve gone too far. And it’s time to teach our friends at the New York Times a lesson- because this type of reckless, dangerous behavior by the media cannot go unpunished. I think I have the answer. A three-pronged attack is necessary to insure this never happens again.
First, Officer Wilson and his new wife should announce a billion dollar lawsuit against the New York Times. That will send a strong message. Don’t wait for someone to get killed. That’s murder. But in this case, the New York Times is inciting attempted murder. They need to be punished now- before something very bad happens. Let all of the liberal media be put on notice. If you play with fire, you will get burned. Hit ‘em where it hurts- in the wallet. If all goes well in court, Police Officer Wilson could wind up owing the “old grey lady.”
Second, we need laws in the states of New York and Missouri to prevent this terrible situation from ever happening again. In California it is a crime for anyone (media or otherwise) to publicly print the home address of a police officer. But it’s not a crime in New York or Missouri- yet. This has to change, before someone gets killed. If this horrible breach of ethics occurred on California soil, the two New York Times reporters, their editor and publisher would be “perp walked” out of the newspaper building in handcuffs. That should be happening right now in New York.
Third, isn’t what’s good for the goose, good for the gander? Isn’t turnaround fair play? Suppose a team of angry police detectives decide to do a little research and they print the home address of the Times reporters and entire executive team of the New York Times. What would the New York Times think about that? Some would say it’s “fair play” for the hunters to become the hunted.
Maybe it would do the staff of the New York Times some good to feel the same pain and fear as Police Officer Darren Wilson and his pregnant wife. Remember a grand jury of his peers looked at all the evidence for many months and determined Officer Wilson was an innocent man, acting in self-defense. They were given four options (different levels of charges to contemplate).
The grand jury could have chosen any of them- including the lowest level of criminal charges. This jury of Ferguson citizens (three of them African American) knew if they chose no charges they could wind up starting a riot that would burn down their own town. They knew they themselves could become marked men and women. Yet they still chose no charges. It was that clear to them that Officer Wilson was an innocent man. 100% innocent. They couldn’t live with themselves if they charged an innocent man with murder, in order to satisfy the lynch mob waiting outside the courthouse.
Yet into this fray dropped the New York Times. Has the New York Times become judge, jury and executioner? Is it the media’s role to incite mob violence?
“The old grey lady” has stepped over a line. Either the people running the New York Times are reckless…mentally unstable…or liberals have decided it’s “fair” to incite lynch mobs to maim, murder or burn down the home of innocent police officers involved in race-based shootings.
Either way, the New York Times obviously needs a change of ownership. Officer Darren Wilson is now retired and looking for a new career. My hope is that we are still a nation of laws, not of mob violence. If so, I’m rooting for a court of law to make Darren Wilson the new owner/publisher of the New York Times.
Oh and Darren…if you’re looking for a Executive Editor…you know where to find me.
We all know Obama is a “hater.” It’s crystal clear from his comments about “fundamentally changing America” and of course his policies that have caused chaos and crisis in our economy and foreign policy…that Obama hates America.
We know from his actions and policies…including his statement “You didn’t build that” that he hates business owners.
We know from his statement about Middle America…that they “cling to their guns and Bibles”…that he has disdain for middle class Americans.
But you might be surprised to learn that he hates his own core supporters. What other conclusion can you draw when you hear the facts? On election day, two weeks ago, President Barack Obama got 89% support from black voters and 66% support from Jewish voters.
Yet the facts I’m about to report indicate that Obama is out to hurt African Americans and Jews. This guy really is a world-class hater. He appears to hate everyone…at least everyone inside America. The question is why don’t African Americans and Jews see the truth that’s staring them right in the face? The question is why are African Americans and Jews voting against their own self-interest? Why are they voting for a guy committed to hurting them? As an American (and a Jew), I couldn’t think of a more dangerous or damaging plan towards African-Americans or Jews than the one being carried out by Obama.
Let’s start with black Americans, and let me be blunt. As a successful businessman, Obama’s plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens will not greatly affect my life. However, it will it crush the lives of millions of poor and lower income black Americans, especially those striving and working hard to escape poverty and achieve the American dream.
After six years of Obama’s presidency, African-American unemployment is more than double that of whites. Obama’s policies haven’t provided jobs (obviously). But he has provided record levels of welfare, food stamps, disability and other handouts from government. Is this a man out to help you? With friends like that, who needs enemies? But I digress.
It’s about to get worse, far worse. Obama’s imminent amnesty plan will allow millions of illegal immigrants to compete for jobs at the lowest rung of the economic scale, a disproportionate number of whom are black Americans. With total disregard for their welfare, hopes, or dreams, Obama will snub his nose at all struggling lower-middle income Americans by allowing millions of uneducated, hard working, desperate-to-support-their-families illegal aliens to legally fight them for low wage jobs.
These illegal immigrants aren’t going to take the jobs of Obama’s liberal Ivy League friends. They aren’t going to take the jobs of his millionaire bundlers. They aren’t going to take the jobs of his billionaire limo-riding, private jet flying, Democratic donors. They pose no threat to Hollywood celebrities. Millions of illegal immigrants suddenly legalized will be taking low-wage jobs from black (and other lower income) Americans.
After Obama finishes his dirty illegal amnesty deed, black Americans will either have a hard time ever finding another job…or the wage pressure created by all these new job seekers means any black American with a low-wage job will never again see a raise. And, forget about young people, especially those without college degrees, ever finding employment at any wage.
Am I wrong? Well guess who agrees with me? Barack Obama himself. Obama wrote in his book, “The Audacity of Hope” that illegal immigration harms the wages of blue collar workers- especially black Americans; depresses wages; and strains the overburdened safety net. That’s what Senator Obama said in his own book in 2006.
So if Senator Obama understood the damage illegal immigration does to black Americans…why would now President Obama open the floodgates to illegal immigration? Why would President Obama want to harm blue-collar workers and depress wages? Is Obama a racist out to keep black Americans hopeless, helpless and dependent on crappy government checks for the rest of all time? I can’t tell you what’s in his heart. But I can tell you – Obama is no friend of black Americans.
The next time you walk into a voting booth remember it’s Obama and the entire liberal political establishment who stays in power by keeping their voters poor and dependent.
Now, let’s examine Obama’s treatment of Jewish Americans. Let me repeat- I am a member of that tribe. Israel’s right to exist is of paramount importance to most American Jews. The list is long of things Obama has said and done which indicate that he is no friend of Israel. Let’s start with his nonstop supportive rhetoric towards Palestinians and Israel’s other radical Muslim enemies…to demanding Israel withdraw to borders that would weaken her defenses…to threatening to withhold arms shipments to Israel unless Israel stops defending herself against terrorists shooting missiles into her residential neighborhoods…to fomenting the “Arab Spring” so that Israel is now surrounded by radical extremist regimes dedicated to her destruction…to publicly embarrassing Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu (Obama aides went so far as to recently call Netanyahu “a coward”).
And then, Obama is about to do the unthinkable- enter into a sham agreement that will allow Iran a nuclear weapon, which puts the lives of seven million Israeli Jews at great risk. Let that deed be on the hands of every Jewish voter who pulled the lever for Obama and his progressive cohorts.
Obama’s true feelings towards Jews and Israel can be summed up by his nomination of Loretta Lynch for United States Attorney General. As a law student, Lynch was active in a radical group at Harvard Law School that each month brought in to speak, Jew-hating, pro terrorist radicals, dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
Giving a platform to Jew haters like this, tells you all you need to know about the mindset of Obama. A history like that should automatically disqualify anyone from ever getting near the U.S. Justice Department, let alone running it.
Who would choose a person with Loretta Lynch’s background to run Justice? With friends like Obama, Jews don’t need enemies.
By the way, if a white conservative Republican supported policies that hurt blacks or Jews; that resulted in more than double black to white unemployment; that allowed in millions of competitors for the jobs of black Americans; or nominated someone to head the Justice Dept with that kind of an anti-semetic background, what would blacks and Jews say?
Folks, if someone hits and hurts you once, it might be a mistake. If they do it twice, perhaps it’s a coincidence. But if they attack and hurt you repeatedly it becomes clear it’s a purposeful pattern and you’re the target. It’s time to admit the other guy doesn’t like you.
So my message to black and Jewish Americans is simple:
It’s time to recognize that Obama isn’t on your side.
Obama doesn’t seem concerned about Ebola. He won’t seal the border. He won’t ban flights from the Ebola Zone. He named an “Ebola Czar” who knows nothing about healthcare. He sent 4000 U.S. military troops into the Ebola Zone. Now a GOP Congressman claims plans are underway to bring non-American Ebola victims to the U.S. for treatment.
Americans are fed up. They’ve had enough. Obama’s incompetence, ignorance, mental instability, or callous disregard for the health of the American people is the talk of the country (outside of Washington DC).
The irony is that while Ebola has so far done very little damage to the American people, with only one person in America dead, Ebola’s chief victim appears to be President Obama and the Democratic Party. Obama’s response to Ebola has finally convinced the electorate that Obama is dangerous too our health. Ebola has finally shifted the electorate away from Obama and his Democratic Party. A Republican landslide is forming.
How bad will the coming election results be for Obama and Democrats?
The GOP is on the cusp of another historic landslide-similar to the one I predicted publicly in 2010.
Back then, I predicted the GOP would win 50 to 60 Congressional seats. The experts said I was out of my mind. The GOP won 63 seats.
It was the biggest landslide in almost a century. Ironically it was all based on a fear of Obamacare.
This time polls suggest the results on November 4th will be even worse than 2010. Polls show generic Republican Congressional candidates leading by more than four years ago. This time the results are based on the real-life results of Obamacare, combined with a fear of the healthcare scare of our lifetime- Ebola.
How bad is this coming landslide? CNN reports that Democrats are trailing badlyeven in Massachusetts.
Democrats will be wiped out. It’s all breaking wrong for Obama and the Democrats. Want proof? Here’s a reality more telling than polls.
It’s Fall. Leaves are changing color. That means political campaign time. Congress is up for re-election. This is always when presidents are crisscrossing the nation campaigning full-time for their candidates. But something strange is happening this year. There’s no president in sight. Obama is so invisible there are rumors he’s in the Witness Protection Program.
Democratic candidates are making believe Obama has never existed. Yes, I said Democrats. His Democrats. The same Democrats who supported his policies. The same Democrats who passed his policies. The same Democrats that proudly took credit for “saving” the economy. The same Democrats who took credit for “saving” healthcare. The same Democrats who promised to “chase ISIS to the gates of hell.”
That was of course before they went door to door in their districts and found out from their own constituents that the economy hasn’t been saved, healthcare has been ruined and ISIS is laughing at and mocking Obama.
Now those same Democrats…Obama’s brothers and sisters in socialist policy…are on the run from Obama like he’s contagious. The medical term might be “loser’s disease.” They don’t want Obama anywhere near them. Not on the stage with them. Not in a photo. Not in the same city. Not in the same state. Obama is as toxic as Ebola…to Democrats!
Even Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman won’t answer questions about the President. What’s the matter Debbie, cat got your tongue?
Suddenly Democratic allies of Obama claim they’ve never met Obama. They’ve never been in the same room as Obama. They’ve never heard of Obama. They’re diving off stages like trained acrobats to avoid appearing in a picture with Obama. They won’t even admit they ever voted for Obama. “Obama who?”
It’s like a real-life version of Jimmy Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Obama is alive and he gets to actually watch a world where people claim he’s never existed. To Democrats the last six years never happened. Amazing.
Even the New York Times is commenting publicly about it. The Times lamented in a recent editorial that only one Democratic Senate candidate in the whole country (Gary Peters of Michigan) is willing to be pictured next to Obama anywhere in the country. Most won’t even admit they voted for him (see Alison Grimes of Kentucky). The Times is aghast. “Why aren’t they defending his policies?” the NY Times asks in shock and dismay.
Could it be because in the real world Obama’s economic policies, healthcare policies, Ebola policies and foreign policies are all failing miserably? Could it be because the American middle class finally understands that the biggest danger to America’s future is sitting in the White House?
Thank goodness Ebola has not exploded into a pandemic inside America…yet. But make no mistake- Ebola is deadly. And there are certainly two high-profile victims: Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.
From my commentaries the last few weeks at Blaze, it’s clear I’m concerned about a potential Ebola pandemic inside America. Nonetheless Ebola is a worry about a potential problem. A theoretical problem. No one knows yet how much damage Ebola can do to America.
On the other hand, we have already experienced the damage, destruction and pain of President Barack Obama. Let’s compare Ebola to Obama.
Ebola– so far, 1 dead and 2 nurses infected.
Obama- almost 50 million Americans on food stamps (15 percent of the U.S. population); 108 million on welfare or other entitlement programs; an all-time record number on disability and Medicaid; and $3.7 trillion spent on welfare over the past five years under Obama.
Ebola– the healthcare, decontamination and security costs for Ebola are frightening. But so far there are only a handful of patients. Ebola is with us for weeks, or months. Then it’s gone.
Obama– the $7 trillion in debt added by Obama (so far) will cause decades of pain for American consumers and taxpayers, damage middle class quality of life, and reduce U.S. economic growth for many generations to come.
Ebola– threatens to damage various sectors of the economy, but no one knows how bad it might be.
Obama– already destroyed economy. Over 92 million working age Americans are not working; there are 10 million less Americans working than the day Obama took office (even though the population is dramatically higher); we now have the lowest workforce participation rate in recorded history.
Ebola– this dreadful virus might overwhelm US healthcare system and result in higher health insurance premiums to pay for the massive cost.
Obama– no guesswork needed. The facts are in. Obamacare has already wrecked the U.S. healthcare system and dramatically increased our premium costs. Premiums were up more in the past year than in the prior eight yearsCOMBINED.
Ebola– this virus has no known interaction with the IRS. It never came after me personally.
Obama– used IRS to try to destroy conservative donors and critics. I’m a witness. The White House clearly ordered the IRS to try to destroy me not once, but twice. Judicial Watch demanded the IRS hand over all documents related to my case. The IRS had 30 days- BY LAW- to comply. That was 15 months ago. The IRS has broken the law of the United States for well over a year to cover up for the crimes of Obama.
Ebola– doesn’t sell guns to anyone.
Obama– in the “Fast and Furious scandal” the Obama administration sold guns to Mexican drug lords that killed or wounded over 300 Mexican citizens– plus a US border agent. So far that’s approximately 300 more deaths and injuries than Ebola has caused in North America.
Ebola– doesn’t trade deserters for 5 Jihadi terrorist murderers.
Obama- demoralizes U.S. military by making that unimaginable trade; cuts size of military dramatically; sends 4000 troops into Ebola Zone (with only four hours of Ebola training); and purges more generals than any president in history.
Ebola– never infected a single person at the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.
Obama– allegedly traded arms to Muslim rebels that led to deaths of four American heroes at Benghazi; ignored pleas from our Ambassador for more security; denied a rescue mission while our heroes were under vicious attack; then covered up the tragedy by blaming it on obscure movie no one in Middle East ever watched.
Ebola– doesn’t steal my money or regulate me out of business.
Obama– put in place the single biggest tax increase (Obamacare) in history. Even worse, he has proposed the most tax increases in history that never passed- 442. Worst of all, Obama is the No. 1 regulator in U.S. history (passing a higher quantity and cost of regulations than any president ever).
Ebola– so far has not affected the border.
Obama– has crippled border security. He has left our Southern border completely unsecured from massive waves of illegal immigrants desperate for cradle to grave entitlements; diseases like TB, Enterovirus and of course Ebola; and terrorist cells who could cross our wide open border and unleash a devastating 9/11-style attack on U.S. soil.
Ebola– so far poses no threat to Israel and has left the Middle East untouched.
Obama– his policies have endangered the security of Israel, and led to the “Arab Spring” that toppled dictators friendly to America, leaving the Middle East under attack from radical groups like ISIS.
Add it up.
Ebola is a terrible threat. But so far, it is only a threat.
Obama is toxic. Obama has had a devastating effect upon America’s economy, healthcare system, national interests and reputation across the globe.
Ebola might give us a punch in gut.
Obama could be fatal.
The GOP is about to win another historic landslide- similar to the one I predicted publicly in 2010. Back then, I predicted the GOP would win over 60 Congressional seats. The experts said I was crazy. I wasn’t. The GOP won 63 seats.
Another historic tidal wave is coming in November. Democrats will be wiped out. It’s all breaking wrong for Obama and the Democrats.
How bad is it breaking? The government just last week announced fantastic economic news- 244,000 jobs created in the month of September. No one cares. In the latest CNBC poll- after hearing that news- American’s confidence in Obama’s economic policies dropped to all-time lows of 24%.
Considering Obama has the unwavering support of blacks and almost perfect support of other minorities (Latinos, gays, single mothers, etc) that means Obama’s support among the rest of America must be near Z-E-R-O. Outside of black voters, Obama has the least support of any President in U.S. history.
The reasons why are simple. Even the greatest salesmen in political history eventually wears out his welcome when the consumers try the product and it’s a rip-off. At that point, no one believes a word you say. At that point, no amount of poetry, propaganda or fancy salesmanship can save the deal. All credibility is gone.
America is a mess. The borders are wide open. Illegal immigration is out of control. Illegal children are being sent to schools across this country- thereby risking the spread of diseases such as TB or the deadly childhood illness Enterovirus.
Then there’s Ebola. Obama’s response to Ebola has been disastrous. He has done nothing to secure the border with Mexico. He has refused to ban incoming flights from African countries where Ebola is raging. And sending over 3000 U.S. troops into harms way into that same “Ebola hot zone” is reckless and fruitless. Thousands of soldiers could become exposed and bring Ebola home to America.
Then there’s terrorism and ISIS. A new CBS poll shows voters give the GOP a 21-point advantage over Democrats on the issue of terrorism. Worse, a plurality of voters say Obama’s policies has made the country less safe.
Of course there’s nothing that hits home more than the economy. Voters finally understand that there is no “recovery”- no matter how many times Obama and his socialist cabal claim it to be true. Voters know there are no jobs, no matter what the jobs report claims. All they have to do is look around. No amount of propaganda can change what they see with their own eyes.
Want proof? The government’s own JOLT report came out on Tuesday. It says that monthly hiring has plummeted. Dropped off a cliff.
It was down 294,000 positions last month- that’s the worst drop since 2010…and the third worst number since the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
So now I ask you…how could there be good news about jobs created…at the same time the government’s own report shows a severe halt to hiring? Somebody’s cooking the books folks. How can there be jobs if there’s no hiring?
But I’ve saved the most important reason for a GOP landslide for last- Obamacare.
Last week was the one year anniversary of Obamacare. It’s a date that will live in infamy. It’s no longer a theory. It’s reality. Middle class America knows first hand what a failure and disaster it is. Meaning Obama’s lies are rendered meaningless.
Millions of Americans have lost their health insurance. Millions more have seen massive unaffordable increases. Millions more have seen their jobs cut from full-time to part-time. Funny how none of these facts have made it into the mainstream media.
Take this author and small businessman for example. My family’s health insurance has gone from $500 per month to $1,700 per month thanks to Obamacare. But my fun was just beginning. Because the tripling of my rates wasn’t the worst part. In July my family received a notice from Aetna that our insurance was being cancelled. The reason? Because of the mandates of Obamacare, Aetna can no longer afford to insure my family for $1,700 per month.
What will the new rate be? $2000 per month? $2500 per month? Will they charge me $30,000 per year (before taxes) to provide health coverage for a family that has never experienced a major illness?
The lives of average middle class Americans are being ruined by Obamacare. Since the average income in America is about $50,000 per year, how will anyone afford $20,000 or $25,000 or $30,000 insurance bills? You think people are panicking across America? You’re damn right they are.
But the disaster of Obamacare is about more than dramatic rate increases. It’s about the destruction of full-time jobs. Obamacare has turned America into a nation of part-time jobs.
Into the fray – enter WalMart. America’s biggest employer just announced they are ending healthcare benefits for part-time employees. WalMart employees over 1.3 million Americans.
Obamacare is a tragedy for middle class Americans. Like the title of my new book, it is “The Murder of the Middle Class.” The lives of millions of middle class Americans- many of them independent voters, or blue dog Democrats- have been damaged badly. They are angry and they will take it out on Obama and the Democratic Party this November.
A historic landslide is forming. My prediction is that most every close race will break the way of the GOP in the closing days. Republicans will take control of the Senate and expand their advantage in the House by as much as a double digit seat increase (once thought impossible).
If Obama thinks the news about ISIS, Ebola and the economy is bad, wait until he sees the headlines the day after the election.
Here we go again. The latest jobs report came out last week- and it’s pure fraud and fantasy. Lies and propaganda passed off as “good news.” The reality is this new jobs report is a DISASTER for America and our middle class.
The “facts” released by our “honest and transparent government” report 248,000 new jobs created, beating expectations by a mile. The “facts” report unemployment dropping to 5.9%, the lowest rate since 2008.
It’s as if Obama is saying, “If you like your job, you can keep it.”
But you can’t. It’s no more truthful or realistic than “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” Same fraud. Same lies. Same propaganda. Same “Banana Republic” mainstream media reporting lies, fantasy and propaganda as truth.
Here’s the REAL facts about the latest jobs report:
First the reason unemployment dropped to the fantasy level of 5.9% is that 315,000 more Americans dropped out of the Labor Force last month.
Where did they go? Most of them dropped off unemployment to get on welfare, food stamps or disability. Job categories used to be listed as policeman, fireman, scientist, butcher and baker. Now we should add “government dole.” Millions of people get up late, watch Judge Judy and Dr. Phil and get off the couch for the first time all day to open the mail to find their government check. This is the Obama economy. Obama uses the fact that millions of Americans are not working as a reason to lower the unemployment rate.
Where will America get the money to pay for all these welfare, food stamp, disability and Social Security checks for citizens who will never work again? We’re already broke. This just adds to the crushing unsustainable $18 trillion debt.
This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.
Adding to the misery, the Labor Force Participation rate just dropped to the lowest in 36 years. There are now 92.6 million working-age Americans NOT working.
This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.
Like those late night infomercials say- “But wait. There’s more!”
How can 248,000 new jobs be a good thing if average hourly wages are stagnant or dropping? Because they are. That fact was buried in the latest jobs report.
Even the Americans lucky enough to have a job are drowning in quicksand. As Democrat Bill Clinton just admitted, “The average American is making less, adjusted for inflation, the day I left office.”
The middle class isn’t getting richer, it’s getting poorer. Even Bill Clinton understands that under Obama the middle class is struggling to survive…and struggling to pay bills…that’s if they still have a job.
This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.
The bad news is coming in waves. The media forgot to tell you that inside last week’s jobs report was this nugget of reality- the only people being hired are your grandparents. 230,000 of the new jobs went to those in the 55 to 69 year old age group. In the prime working age group of 24 to 54 years old, 10,000 jobs were lost.
Holy freaking batman! What is happening? It means grandma and grandpa are desperate and willing to take grandson’s low wage job to survive until Social Security kicks in…or perhaps they need to work until the day they die, to supplement Social Security. But that’s very bad news. The U.S. workforce is now the oldest in history. If grandpa or grandma has to work (out of desperation) until the day he or she dies, there will never be any decent jobs for the grand-kids.
This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.
But I’ve saved the two worst bits of news for last. What good is the news of 248,000 new jobs, if they are all part-time or low wage jobs? 4 of the 5 new jobs were in the lowest quality categories.
Obama is creating a nation of desperate, government-dependent minimum wage workers. If you lose your $100,000 job, get ready to clean toilets, flip burgers, mow lawns, or work at The Gap. Because that’s all that’s available among the new jobs.
That’s if there are any jobs at all. I believe the numbers of new jobs are pure fraud. Made up out of thin air. Want proof? The government’s own JOLT report came out on Tuesday. It says that monthly hiring has plummeted. Dropped off a cliff.
It was down 294,000 positions last month- that’s the worst drop since 2010…and the third worst number since the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
So now I ask you…how could there be good news about jobs created…at the same time the government’s own report shows a severe halt to hiring? Somebody’s cooking the books folks.
And how come the mainstream media only reports on the fraudulent report showing jobs created…but never mentions the other report showing plummeting hiring? Good question. The media is obviously in on the fix. The media has a conflict of interest. The media is big business. The media is owned by billion dollar companies. Their advertisers are billion dollar companies. Their own media companies are publicly traded on Wall Street. They are in on the fix. They desperately want you to believe all is well, so their advertisers keep spending…and so their stock prices don’t plummet. They need to keep the Ponzi scheme going. Can you spell “BANANA REPUBLIC”?
Welcome to Obama’s America- where up is down…where bad news is reported as good news…where old is the new young (because only old people work anymore)…where minimum wage is this President’s obsession because minimum wage jobs are the only jobs in the Obama economy…where it’s good news that people stop working and join the welfare rolls because they are now more likely to vote Democrat…where as Nancy Pelosi claims, “Food stamps, unemployment and welfare are the best ways to grow the economy.”
Oh…my…God. This Obama crowd is pure crazy. Either idiots, insane or communists. My educated guess is…a combination of all three.
This folks is an unmitigated disaster. This folks is “the murder of the middle class.”
This latest jobs report is pure fraud.
