10 Million More in Poverty Under President Obama

In 2008, the last year of the last Republican President, the poverty rate in our nation was at 13.2%- in human terms this meant that 39.8 million individuals lived in poverty. In 2012, the last year of the current Democrat President, the poverty rate in our nation has risen to an estimated 15.7%- in human terms that means that 49.3 million individuals now live in poverty. Let’s not lose sight of this fact- after 4 years of President Obama as our Chief Executive, of which his party controlled the Senate the entire time and the House half of the time, the number of Americans living in poverty has gone up a stunning 9.5 million individuals.

Over the next coming months there is going to be a lot of fake controversies and the media and Obama is going to predict the worst possible results of Romney and Ryan’s policies. I wonder though- one doubts that even if Romney and Ryan were really really awful and their policies were an utter disaster that they would be able to increase the poverty rate in our nation as much as President Obama and the Democrats already have.

10 million more individuals in our nation now live in poverty as a result of Democratic policies which remove individual responsibility, discourage liberty and freedom, attack life, and do not respect private property rights. President Obama is promising to increase the size and scope of the national government, centralizing more decision making process and money in the far-distant capitol, where unelected bureaucrats who are bought off by special interests will play games with the fruits of your labor while you hope to someday get the scraps thrown back your way.

10 million more individuals in our nation now live in poverty as a result of President Obama and his policies- employers are discouraged from hiring employees, especially those who do not have experience or education, because of increased costs on employers for hiring people put in place by President Obama. Paperwork, healthcare, taxes, increased potential for litigation, regulations- President Obama and liberal Democrats have piled these on employers through poorly-conceived policies and now employers are being discouraged from hiring people, leaving more in poverty.

President Obama and liberal Democrats believe in collecting more wealth from individuals and businesses and then distributing it to those who are politically powerful and connected to them- this sort of perverse ‘trickle-down’ economics does not reach those at the bottom of the system and leaves many more in poverty than would otherwise be there if President Obama and his liberal Democrat allies in Congress were not passing any sort of laws at all.

Things were bad in 2008, and we added ‘Obama’ and ‘Democrat’ to the equation- and the result is 10 million more individuals living in poverty, struggling to put food on the table and shelter over their heads.

10 million more individuals are poor and hungry and weak and suffering because of President Obama.

Make a difference in 2012.

Let’s Save America

If Paul Revere were alive today, he wouldn’t be warning us that the redcoats are coming — he’d be telling us they’re already here.  And these days, it’s not the crimson coats that identify the enemy — it’s their black totalitarian hearts.

One of this era’s night watchmen is Ulsterman’s White House Insider. WHI, apocryphal or not, has been accurately tolling the alarm bell for some time. Some excerpts from Ulsterman’s latest report:

“We Got One Last Chance Here To Make It Right”

[…] WHI: … I’ll say it to you again and again – Obama ain’t no Democrat. Never was. Never has been. He controls the party…people who think like him…people who placed him in power…they control the party…but they represent something far different than what the party was 20 odd years ago …these Obama people…they are different.  A whole other level.  Never seen anything like it …

… You got no f-cking idea how far these people will go to keep pushin’ this agenda of theirs.  Everything I told you was coming – now it’s here.   The dismantling of the American system.  The drones, the race riots, the promises to other countries…the open borders, the destruction of our domestic energy productions, the Obama government at war with the Catholic Church…the massive inflation that is just perched above us waiting to fall down on all our heads…so much sh-t they got ready to fire at us.  That second term…that’s their moment.  Obamacare, the deficit…cities going under…military cutbacks…I can’t keep track of it all it’s going on so damn fast now.  This election coming up – people better know…they ain’t messing around now.  This is the real f-cking deal right here.  Right now.

***

UM:  Why haven’t more in the military – why haven’t they come out against this administration?  You’ve told me, the Old Man has told me…the Military Insider hinted at it – that they know this administration is doing wrong.  Why not come out against them?

WHI:  (Long Pause)  If they came out against the president…something like that – an openly public and deliberate move against the president…that would be a crisis.  A domestic crisis of epic f-cking proportions.  That’s now how these kinda things go down kid.   That’s Hollywood bullsh-t stuff – that’s not reality.

The Joint Chiefs…those guys are politicians as much as Obama.  And the ones right under them – they want that next step up, right?  And the administration, they play that card to the hilt.  Same thing with Congress.  I know for a fact there are Senators – Democrats…who are appalled at what the administration is doing.  Appalled at what they are hearing about the character and motivations of this so-called president.  But to come right out against him…Reid won’t have it.  I don’t know what kinda deal was struck between those two devils – Reid and Obama…but Reid has the Senate on lockdown.  And he’s got most of those Democrats in the Senate too damn afraid to say anything – while the rest of them are happy to support the administrationbecause they are cut from that same idiotic socialist progressive cloth as he is– and they think they will get a seat at the big table when all of this shakes out.

***

You’re askin’ what it will take to defeat Obama?  Defeat the ones around him?  Jarrett?  Holder?  All of them?  It’s gonna take the American people to wake the f-ck up NOW.  It’s getting to be go time here.  August is when the real race is run…all the way to end … This IS the time to pay attention…tell everyone you know…everyone you care about…vote out Obama.  Vote the son-of-a-bitch out.  We got one last chance here to make it right.

… we gotta do this together.  All of us.  Every last one of us.  I need your readers help.  I need them to speak out to everyone they know.  Every last person they know.  For the love of God get people motivated to do what’s right this election.  None of us can afford to sit this one out.  None of us.

***

I’ll promise you this…if Obama is defeated this election… If the American people send him on his way…there is gonna be a whole sh-t pile of information coming out on what was really going on inside that White House of his and Jarrett’s.  People will have the guts to speak out – openly.  And they won’t be alone.  They will be able to do it without the fear that hangs over them now – all of us…how scary sh-t is right now.

And when all that truth starts to come out…people…the ones willing to listen and understand…they are gonna realize just how close the country…how close we were to the darkness.  The future that was gonna be ripped away from their kids and grandkids.  And how their votes against Obama saved America. How they saved that future.  In the end…like I told you…in the end when the country is in real crisis – it always comes down to the American people to save it … let’s get to it.  Let’s save America.

Anybody who’s ever served time in a combat zone in any era has a first hand familiarity with deadly incompetence and lethal stupidity — most of which emanates from the politicians who sent them there in the first place. Yes-men in uniform are even more common than their civilian counterparts, given their training in blind obedience to orders even if issued by criminals and buffoons.  Historically, American officers have not been particularly susceptible to felonious obsequiousness of this sort, but after nearly four years of rule by Barack Obama, an ominous sea change seems to have taken place in American military thought:

Army Colonel Ignites Firestorm With Article On Crushing A ‘Tea Party Insurgency’

[…] The report describes how the Army will respond to threats “at home and abroad” in the coming two decades and in doing so has made clear that a monumental cultural shift has occurred in the thinking of those at the top levels of military command. This shift has some government watchdogs worried, particularly given that Benson is using the platform provided at Fort Leavenworth to indoctrinate soldiers in his vision of the nature of modern warfare in America. According to the vision articulated by Benson, future warfare will be conducted on our own soil. The military will use its full force against our own citizens. The enemy will be average citizens whose values resonate with those articulated by the tea party.

… Several items of interest are to be noted in the scenario the Army uses to describe the tea party activists — “right wing,” “extremists,” “insurrectionists,” all of whom are lumped together with militias and organizations that are considered “racist” and “anti-immigration.” By contrast, those who oppose the tea party are referred to as “mainstream.”

… repeatedly since the election of Barack Obama in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has referred to the tea party as “potential homegrown terrorists.”

Why? Not a shred of evidence remotely suggests that the tea party has any connection whatsoever with terrorists. Yet some of President Obama’s closest longtime friends have not only been associated with terrorism but actively participated in it, such as Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who as members of the Weathermen from the 1960s and 70s bombed federal buildings that resulted in the deaths of police officers … if one listens to the rhetoric emanating from the White House, DHS, and now the U.S. military, one gets the impression that none of the president’s friends ever posed a threat to the country but hundreds of thousands of tea party activists are ticking time bombs lying in wait to unleash a nuke on an American city at the drop of a hat.

The brainwashing against conservatives by this administration has had a definite impact on the military. One analyst who works for retired U.S. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told this reporter that now over half of Pentagon personnel are solidly in Obama’s corner and share his values and world view.

Someone should remind the uniformed Obamunists of the fate of another group that blindly obeyed the diktats of their Leader: the war criminals who mounted the gallows in Nuremberg in 1945.

Without a Rudder or a Sail

Will Rodgers once said:  ”I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat.” He would have made the same point if he had said he was a Republican. I am going to extrapolate Will Rodgers’ words and say: “I am not a member of any organized culture, I am an American.” One would be hard pressed today to describe American culture in a few words. That was not always the case. In the eighteenth century, American culture was dominated by the WASP (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants). As the nineteenth century progressed and the country grew through immigration, our culture morphed into a Judeo-Christian dominated society. The twentieth century has become known as the socialist or statist era. Now in the twenty-first century, some would say that socialism is on the wane and will be replaced by a form of fascism. I have to wonder if President Obama is purposely dividing us in order to control us, or is he merely taking advantage of the lack of cohesion in American society today?

George Scaggs, in his article Beyond the Ballot Box demonstrates many of the same concerns that I have; but he is able to  express himself much more eloquently than I am able. Here are some excerpts:

Rather  suddenly, the incremental erosion that has haunted America for decades seems a  distant memory.  Under the Obama administration, particularly within the  last couple of months, America has now accelerated headlong into the wholesale  destruction of constitutional limitations and inalienable  rights.

“Laws”  are now created by simple proclamation, while other laws are rendered  irrelevant.  Some are even subject to public pronouncements that they will not be enforced by those constitutionally charged to do  so.

The  concerted level of ignorance, apathy, and selfishness necessary to deliver  America to this rather dismal station is becoming ever clearer, and the extent  to which a lack of personal responsibility by some subsequently results in a  loss of freedom for all has never before been so present.

As I see it, the Judeo-Christians are still the majority in this country. But, we are anything but united. I see the Judeo-Christians divided into three groups: Two are politically engaged as either “conservatives” or “progressives” and the third group are totally disengaged from the political process. That makes us vulnerable to those who want to rule over us. Mr. Scaggs excellent article ends with these thoughts:

Though  Mr. Obama and his congressional ilk need to be vanquished in November, America  will find many of the solutions to what ails her lie beyond the ballot  box.  There is an anchor weighing on the nation’s ability to reverse  course.  It is interwoven throughout our entire culture, and it has been  strengthened for decades.

Regardless  of what unfolds in November, and long after Mr. Obama is gone (whenever that may  be), peril awaits.  Dealing with the uncomfortable reality that America is  destroying itself is the true measure of the task which lies  ahead.

Strangely enough, I started out today to write a positive post about reclaiming the vaunted American spirit. It didn’t work out that way, did it? Frankly, I don’t know what it would take to turn America around. Maybe we need a conservative version of Will Rodgers to remind people what we once were and what we could be again. A culture without a sense of unity is no culture at all. We seem to be a ship without a rudder or even a sail.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Mark Oxner is Running Against Alan Grayson: He’s Going to Need Some Help

Who is Mark Oxner, you ask?  Well, he’s running against none other than former Democratic Marxist Congressman Alan Grayson Shrek.  Grayson’s constituents sent him packing in 2010, but redistricting has given him a new hope.  Here is a rather creative campaign ad from Mr. Oxner…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=OBC4-IMbsBM

Running against Grayson, Oxner will be exposed to a never ending stream of lies, exaggerations, and out right fabrications.  So, visit his site, and help if you can.  Our good friend, King Shamus, commented on the situation thusly…

Besides Mark Oxner is running against none other than Alan Grayson. Grayson is such a left-wing hammer head that he got booted out of the House in 2010. But since the prick just won’t take a hint, he’s decided to run in Florida’s new district. Wouldn’t it be lovely to send this massive progtard packing twice within two election cycles?

I’m already starting to get a massive schadenfreude overdose just thinking about it.

Seconded!
