McCain urged IRS to target conservatives

April 12, 2015

And you thought McCain had confined himself to purging conservative elected Precinct Committeemen from the Arizona Republican Party *

The Washington Examiner headlines, “Sens. McCain and Levin urged IRS to target Tea Party, conservative groups,”  and follows up with this blockbuster report. It’s doubtful you’ll find this revelation in the pages of the Arizona Republic newspaper.

Excerpted from the report:

According to Judicial Watch officials who obtained the latest batch of documents after a federal judge issued a court order in one of the Judicial Watch’s lawsuits about the IRS’ abuses, “A May 1, 2013, email exchange between Lois Lerner and other top IRS staffers revealed that 11 days prior to Lerner’s admission that the IRS had “inappropriately” targeted conservative groups, she met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the ‘worst decisions I have ever seen.'”

 * McCain operatives have worked to eradicate conservative PC’s in a concerted effort to replace them with mavericky moderates after McCain was embarrassingly censured by elected Republican state committeemen in 2014. This year many committeeman booed McCain and others turned their backs to him as he addressed the gathering.


Are you Muslim or Christian? Religion of Peace update

April 2, 2015

Christians at morning prayer targeted by killers shouting “Allahu Akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic

As heavily armed masked gunmen mercilessly slaughtered at least 15 university students at Garissa University College, seriously injuring 60 others, a single question was on their lips.

The assassins, who identified themselves as (al-Qaeda-linked) al-Shabab, ran from dorm room to dorm room shouting: “Are you Muslim or Christian?” Christians were mowed down.

The Kenyan campus has six dorms and approximately 900 students. Hundreds are reportedly still unaccounted for.

Read more in the UK’s Daily Mail.  Al Jazeera’s English version, which refers to itself as a “trusted and respected” news source, mysteriously omits the crucial question that was asked of the students —- determining who lived and who died.


Illegal invaders become “Americans-in-Waiting”

Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.

“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system.  Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”

Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”

America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it. 

When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —-  with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?

On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.

As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.

Obama spews whoppers as global tensions worsen

February 10, 2015

During Monday’s press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Barack Obama responded to a reporter asking if he was angry with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for accepting Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to address Congress.

Included in Obama’s response was this insulting and untruthful nugget: “We have a practice of not meeting with leaders right before their elections, two weeks before their elections,” adding, “As much as I love Angela, if she was two weeks away from an election, she probably would not have received an invitation to the White House. And I suspect she wouldn’t have asked for one. So, you know, the — so, you know, this is just — some of this just has to do with how we do business.”

With that barbed comment Obama implies that he knows what Merkel would do, though he has never dealt with the Chancellor at a time when the U.S. was about to sell out her nation in a perilous nuclear deal with a neighbor committed to destroying Germany —- the situation Netanyahu is facing with Iran. Netanyahu’s March 3 address will focus on the dangers of a nuclear Iran.

In fact, Obama did meet with Merkel just two months prior to her 2013 election and has met with other world leaders under similar circumstances.

Even the leftist editorial board of the Washington Post expresses “major concerns” over the  Obama administration’s risky nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Obama’s fabricated rule regarding not meeting with foreign leaders close to an election doesn’t explain why Secretary of State John Kerry and VP Joe Biden met with Netanyahu’s chief political rival Isaac Herzog this past weekend.

Breitbart exposes an anti-Netanyahu group called “One Voice,” which has rented offices in Israel.  Reportedly funded by liberal American donors, the campaign team is suspiciously led by Obama’s 2012 national field director Jeremy Bird.

WND provides an in-depth report on Bird, who is “taking his wildly successful Chicago-esque, Alinsky brand of community organizing to Tel Aviv,” where the field specialist has been making headlines for his paid consultancy to V15, an Israeli organization working to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu” in the March 17, General Election.

The back story to Obama’s double-standard  manner of just “doing business” is jaw-droppingly deceptive.


Gallup CEO: 5.6% jobless rate “big lie” created by WH

February 6, 2015

Sobering truth: 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed

Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, minces no words in his assessment of the official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor. Clifton calls it “extremely misleading.”

“Right now,” he writes, “we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part-time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part-time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.

Gallup defines a good job as 30+ hours per week for an organization that provides a regular paycheck. Right now, the U.S. is delivering at a staggeringly low rate of 44%, which is the number of full-time jobs as a percent of the adult population, 18 years and older. We need that to be 50% and a bare minimum of 10 million new, good jobs to replenish America’s middle class.

I hear all the time that “unemployment is greatly reduced, but the people aren’t feeling it.” When the media, talking heads, the White House and Wall Street start reporting the truth — the percent of Americans in good jobs; jobs that are full-time and real — then we will quit wondering why Americans aren’t “feeling” something that doesn’t remotely reflect the reality in their lives. And we will also quit wondering what hollowed out the middle class.”
