Obama´s America Will
Become Detroit

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/12/2012 10:42:53 PM

President Barack Obama travelled to Michigan this week and made his case for class war in defense of the welfare state. We need to take more money from the rich, he said, or schools will not be able to afford books, students will not be able to afford college, and disabled children will not get health care. "Our economic success has never come from the top down," said Obama. "It comes from the middle out. It comes from the bottom up." Obama spoke these words a few miles from Detroit — the reductio ad absurdum of his argument.

How would Obama know what made America´s success? He seems to know nothing of history or economics--or even about holding a real job.

We could take every penny the rich have, and it won´t even cover a month´s worth of government spending.

Obama knows what he is and that is an American hating socialist, jealous of anyone´s success. The problem I have is with stupid Americans who cannot or will not see it. Union thugs and unemployed young who cannot find jobs seem to worship at his feet. I am going to sleep. Will the last true American turn out the lights.

If "our economic success has never come from the top down," why does Obama think that taxing the top more will bring success? His persistent illogic makes my nose bleed.

One of the things Obama´s taking advantage of is his ignorant supporters don´t know the difference between income and wealth.Rich people have already paid taxes on their wealth so there´s no claw back for the government to retro grab that money.Going after income for wealth redistribution is a waste of time,if he really wanted money he´d propose a wealth tax.

Even then rich people bury their wealth out of the government´s watchful eye and it´s gotten even worse with Obama because he´s an obsessive distributor.

When Obama first got in office the IRS offered amnesty for people with overseas accounts to pay their back taxes on it.In other words they could launder and hide money overseas without a criminal penalty.The back taxes and fines,if any were the cost of doing shady business.

We never heard the names of any of these cheats but you can bet they were big shot liberals.If a republican´s name popped up the whole party would have been smeared.

These overseas accounts could have been embezzled money from a bank or company,,whose shareholders would like to know about.It could be laundered drug money.It could be kickback money for greasing the wheel on a big government project.

The point is there´s countless billions of wealth that will never be touched for redistribution because the people who have money know how to lose it for taxing purposes.

France just passed such a tax and people are already moving out. Rich people don´t have to hold still for this. They will move and the rest of us will be left behind to cope as best we can. I don´t blame them.

No, America will be divided into rich states and poor states,and that is the way this country was structured y our Constitution.

WE need a new political party that understands this.

Incoming Boston mayor, police
clash over AR-15 proposal

Posted By: JoniTx- 12/30/2013 11:57:33 AM     Post Reply
Boston police are clashing with the city´s incoming mayor over a proposal to arm some officers with AR-15 rifles. Mayor-elect Martin Walsh reportedly came out against the plan over the weekend. The Boston Police Department had been pushing for a limited number of officers to carry the high-powered rifles, in light of recent mass shootings as well as the Boston Marathon bombing earlier this year. But after the incoming mayor initially stayed mum on the idea, a spokeswoman for Walsh told the Boston Herald he´s not on board -- not yet, anyway. "Mayor-elect Walsh is opposed to the AR-15 rifles,"

After Passing Background Checks
in 1993, Dems Got Romped in 1994
Breitbart Big Government, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 12/30/2013 11:52:53 AM     Post Reply
In 1993, Democrats passed background checks for firearms purchasers, and in 1994, they were romped in the congressional elections. Then, as now, we had a Democrat president--Bill Clinton--and a Democrat-controlled Senate, under Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell (D-Maine). The difference between then and now is that the House of Representatives was also controlled by Democrats, so they were able, legislatively, to do whatever they wanted to do, whenever they wanted to do it. And they wanted background checks; therefore, they passed the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act in 1993. (Snip) Clinton signed the measure into law on November 30, 1993,

With Obamacare coverage beginning in earnest on Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reports that thousands of people for which Obamacare plans will block some health care access are rushing to get medical tests and procedures done before their pre-ACA coverage is eliminated. Those who were receiving medical care before being forced to sign up to a new plan on HealthCare.gov will, in many cases, be locked out of hospitals and prevented from seeing doctors who they had typically used. The WSJ contends that about 70% of new plans are more restrictive in the range of doctors and hospitals available to

The rates of children who qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches has ballooned over a decade. Yet area school officials say there are more eligible families who don´t apply for the program, which not only provides access to meals but also qualifies schools for federal grants and additional state money. The percentage of students in New Hampshire who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches grew by 66 percent over 10 years. As of October 2012, 46,659, or 27.3 percent, of New Hampshire public school students in grades 1 through 12 qualified for the program, up from 16.4 percent

Here are the top five stories to watch: 1) Enrollment -The end of March will bring analysis of how many people enrolled in ObamaCare´s new insurance exchanges.

Organizers expect a million people will be in New York City´s Times Square when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a Bronx native, flips the switch to start the ball drop. It´s a tradition with a fascinating past. "This is the largest crystal ball in the world," said Jeff Strauss, president of Countdown Entertainment. "We´re getting ready for New Year´s Eve. We´ve just installed all of the 2,688 Waterford crystal triangles with a new pattern." Every year the ball tells a different story.

We all remember candidate Obama´s speeches and promises to unite the nation: "As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, "There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America." In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that "I don´t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America."

They never give up at the New York Times. If at first they don’t succeed in twisting the truth to fit the Newspeak fit to print, it’s try, try again. Their latest exercise in mendacity is “A Deadly Mix in Benghazi,” an elaborate essay that substitutes a plethora of irrelevant details and animated graphics for historical truth. The long essay takes up an event which, in a rational world, would have led the to resignation of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and the impeachment of President Barack Obama.

The New York Times´s extensive exposé on the September 11 Benghazi attacks turned up no ties to Al Qaeda. By highlighting obscure militiamen and ignoring the roles of White House officials, the piece continues an alarming trend of dismissiveness toward the Obama administration´s greatest foreign policy scandal. The Times´s David Kirkpatrick assembles a long-form argument in the paper this week that the White House could do little to stop the attack which he concludes was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim YouTube video in part aided by the work of non-Al Qaeda related militiamen. Kirkpatrick writes that, while the unease

A new Gallup poll finds President Obama’s approval rating at 39 percent and his disapproval rating at 54 percent. But it’s not just that the public is increasingly displeased with the job Mr. Obama is doing; they are growing weary of the whole packaged deal. They are frustrated with the president, his style, his attitude, his approach to the job. The Boston Herald reports: President Obama’s tanking approval rating in newly released polls shows Americans are tired of his whining, according to some experts, who also see a fighting chance for Republicans to rack up coast-to-coast victories in the 2014 midterm congressional

Americans named President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the world´s most admired living man and woman in 2013, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday. Obama topped the annual list for the sixth consecutive year, a typical ranking for a sitting U.S. president, the polling organization said. But the percentage of those surveyed who choose him as the most admired man fell to 16 percent this year, down from 30 percent in 2012.

While much in Kirkpatrick’s report is not new, the piece is receiving a considerable amount of attention because of this sweeping conclusion: “Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault.” But how much effort did Kirkpatrick expend to uncover any

Their goal: concluding a five-year search for the al Qaeda killer who had been responsible for the shocking 2004 murders of four American military contractors — one of them an ex-SEAL — whose bodies were then burned, dragged through the streets and hanged from a bridge. This night the SEALs departed with these words from their commanding officer: “Gents, stay sharp, and expect a firefight.” In the event, no shots were fired, but the SEALs faced another kind of ambush: a humiliating,
