Here we go again!..

As election time nears, and just like clockwork, the Democrats have found and eager accomplice in the Republican candidate. Whether it’s apologizing for something that didn’t happen or explaining a stance on a non existent issue, the GOP falls for the bait every single time.

This year is different only in the sense that Donald Trump’s combative attitude plays right in to Hillary’s scheme. The Clinton campaign has shifted the debate away from immigration, debt, unemployment, and national security to Donald Trump’s taxes and Miss Universe. Of course, the media enhances the message with the premise that these sorts of matters are of vital concern to the American people. And you wonder why we are where we are in this country!

Which is it?…..

Do you ever find it interesting that we have a president who has managed to convey this bewildering sense of “reality”…for lack of a better word…to a distracted, detached populace?…

OBAMA CLUELESS

Unknown

He can go from feigning ignorance on an issue to flat out lying to the American public on another. It doesn’t matter what the scenario. There’s never any push back. Never any outrage. Never any challenge. He’s managed to convince an ill informed, occupied with the day-to-day, electorate that’s just the way things are. No accountability. No redress. We simply move on to the next contentious point of order!

It’s sad that we’ve devolved to this. We take for granted the life we have in this nation. That it will always go on. It will always be as we know it. If you’re the least bit concerned, you know this not to be the case. We’re a society drowning in debt.. a culture diluted by unchecked immigration..and a nation witnessing unspeakable violence practically daily.

Yet…here is Barack Obama. Given carte blanche to seize a substantial portion of the economy (i.e. Obamacare)…negotiate the security of the United States WITHOUT the approval of Congress…and manipulate whatever government issued statistic he pleases in order to present this utopia to a foolish and blind America. WITH the media’s eager assistance, mind you!

Of course, it goes without saying, if we had a Republican in office encountering the same, he would have been impeached years ago. He wouldn’t have the racial guilt of our society to protect him. He wouldn’t have a slavish media to present his presidency to voters who willingly fall for the imperialistic demeanor.

We face another year and a half of the Obama term. There’s no telling what we will encounter down the road. I shudder to think!

 

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

As with most EVERYTHING in the Obama administration, the unfolding immigration and border crisis is escalating into a catastrophe…Not necessarily for him, but for the nation.

The Economic Collapse blog, as they usually do, has the perfect analysis of the most damaging, disastrous president this nation has seen….

obama-and-illegal-aliens

 

“For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants. Border security is a joke, the federal government refuses to go after “sanctuary cities” even though they are breaking federal law, there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps. And Obama has even instructed officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases involving non-criminals. In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them.

Apologists for the Obama administration will debate you all day about what Obama “intended” and what he didn’t “intend”, but there is no doubt about what message immigrants from Central America have been receiving.

For example, one young mother recently told the press that she heard that if you “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away”.

And you can view video of a little boy from Central America telling an investigate reporter that he believes that Barack Obama has “given permission” for him to live in the United States right here.

It isn’t an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now. Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras have been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for “Obama’s amnesty”.

When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again. Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are “fleeing gang violence” that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.

What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.

And they just keep on coming.

This is utter madness.

Now, please don’t think that I am anti-immigrant. I am all for legal immigration. This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need immigration. But everyone should be required to come in through the front door. Encouraging illegal immigration is simply a recipe for disaster.

If we keep the back door wide open, the truth is that we have absolutely no idea who is coming into our country. Do we really want countless numbers of criminals, welfare parasites, drug dealers and gang members pouring into our cities? According to the FBI, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States, and it has been estimated that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in federal, state and local prisons.

And why in the world would we not want to control the diseases coming into this country? Over the past several weeks, it has been documented that some of the illegal immigrants that have been apprehended have scabies and tuberculosis.

But instead of sending them right back out of the country, U.S. officials are setting up camps for this tsunami of illegal immigrants. In other cases, the federal government is simply putting them on buses and planes and shipping them all over the country. The illegal immigrants are released into their new communities and are given papers which order them to eventually appear in court, but of course the vast majority of them never show up. You can see a map that documents areas where the federal government has been shipping illegal immigrants right here.

The rational thing to do would be to secure our borders and to send a very clear message that illegal immigration is not welcome in the United States.

But instead of doing that, the Obama administration is actually bringing in a riot squad to deal with anti-immigration protesters.

During normal times all of this would be crazy enough, but right now we are at a point where we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.

We are told that illegal immigrants do the jobs “that Americans don’t want to do”, but is that really accurate?

In this day and age, there is intense competition for just about any kind of a job. Despite what the mainstream media says, the truth is that there hasn’t been a significant employment recovery in the United States. As you can see from the chart posted below, the percentage of the working age population that is actually working is still far, far below where it was just prior to the last recession…

 

Employment-Population-Ratio-2014

 

Yes, there has been a very slight bump in the numbers in recent months, but it is certainly no reason for celebration. When the mainstream media declares that unemployment in America has been steadily going down, they are simply being disingenuous. Right now things are only slightly better than they were during the worst times of the past several years.

And according to shadowstats.com, the broadest measure of unemployment is still well over 20 percent and has been steadily rising since the end of the last recession.

So no, there aren’t nearly enough jobs in the United States.

And thanks to competition from immigrant labor and thanks to the fact that millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well. For much more on that trend, please see this article.

Needless to say, now is not the time to open up the floodgates to millions of immigrants that will need jobs to support themselves. Many of our major cities are already so economically depressed that they look like war zones. In fact, things have gotten so bad in Detroit that a plan is being considered to bulldoze a fifth of the entire city…

In May, a group ominously titled the “Detroit Blight Removal Task Force” released a report claiming that around 22 percent of the city’s properties were “blighted” – vacant, damaged or considered dangerous. They also found that, of the 84,000 properties owned by public entities, just over 5,000 were occupied by squatters, making the city of Detroit, the report’s authors noted, “a very large and inadvertent landlord”.

The task force’s proposed solution is to demolish it all over the next five years and start again. Unfortunately, the plan doesn’t extend to rebuilding the properties – it’ll be down to private companies and developers to buy up the land and rebuild.

For much more on the decay of our major cities, please see my previous article entitled “The Death Of The Rust Belt”.

Considering the fact that we are already having such a severe problem taking care of our current population, what do you think is going to happen to these waves of illegal immigrants as they attempt to settle in to communities all around the nation?

Ultimately, we are going to have to end up financially supporting a very large percentage of them too.

Right now, more than 20 percent of children in this country are already living in poverty, and 49 million Americans are dealing with food insecurity.

If Obama continues to encourage mass illegal immigration, those numbers are going to get much worse.

Government dependence is already at an all-time record high, and about half the country currently receives benefits of some sort from the federal government every month.

How much more weight can we put on the “safety net” before it breaks? Just check out some more numbers about this crisis from one of my previous articles…

-Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.

-The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.

-Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.

-Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent. In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.

-While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.

-Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.

-It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.

-According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

-According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.

A lot of people that are trying to immigrate here illegally just want to make a better life for themselves, and I can appreciate that.

But a policy of making it incredibly difficult for honest people to come in through the front door while keeping the back door completely wide open for lawbreakers is a recipe for national suicide.

And right now we don’t have jobs for these immigrants.

We can’t even take care of the people that are already living here.

Something desperately needs to be done about this, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for Obama to make a bold move to stop illegal immigrants from pouring over the border.”

Divert & Distract

Though I’ve remiss in keeping this page current, I can see not much has changed in several weeks..

obama-lies

 

Barack Obama is STILL lying to the American people..The Democrats are DESPERATE for something…ANYTHING..to divert the public’s attention away from the disastrous, deplorable record they have on the issues that REALLY matter…and the media is STILL making sure to go out of its way to cover for both!

Obamacare slowly sinks in as Americans grapple with WHAT it is..and HOW it works. I don’t foresee some massive bombshell with it that will lead to massive anger. It’s going to be one of those things that, as word spreads, more and more will realize what a gigantic pain in the ass it will be dealing with your personal healthcare.The fact that the president LIED about it, along with the Democrats, is NOT going to help matters, as far as their electoral chances. But, on the other hand, we’re talking about a nation that elected Barack Obama, not once, but TWICE! So, I’m hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

The administration’s indifference and continuous ‘CYA’ mode when it comes to what happened in Benghazi could lead to more unsettling discoveries, pending a Congressional investigation. But, don’t expect much to come of it, no matter how obviously incompetent the Obama White House is. The press would NEVER allow that to happen!

And now we have the doomsday scenario floated by the administration when it comes to climate change. Basically, if we don’t STOP RIGHT NOW, WE’RE DEAD! PERIOD! That’s what they’d like you to believe. It’s all part of the grand strategic move to divert attention away from issues like the economy..jobs..debt. These require SERIOUS consideration and DIFFICULT decisions. But President Obama and the Democrats lack the fortitude and courage to make these decisions. So they continue with the divert and distract tactic. But with a record number of Americans not working, I’m not so sure of their luck this time around.

Let’s face it, folks. We were duped in 2008 and again in 2012. Well, I wasn’t..at least not in the last election. The majority of voters, many who lack basic common sense, were lead down the primrose path by lies and promises from a man most of us never heard of! It’s just that simple. He was considered a viable, attractive alternative and propped up by a national political force as the answer to our woes. Instead, we got a deceitful, incompetent, arrogant, and vindictive man, whose efforts have left us with what you see around you today. Admittedly, the opposition lacked much backbone…over fears of racism and what have you. But that’s no excuse. We are in dire need of someone who is NOT afraid to stand up and tell the truth. The nation needs that terribly. So far, those are few and far between.

In the meantime, we’re left with a struggling economy, a diminished presence on the national stage, and a frustrated, exhausted citizenry. Think about it as you see story after story in the media and you realize how utterly ridiculous and STUPID it all is! I’m hoping 2014 will see more of us coming to our senses. HOPING, mind you. America has failed itself time and again in the past. Maybe this time will be different. We shall see!

 

 

The Joke’s on US!

I can’t think of a better occassion than April Fools day to review some of the highlights of endless laundry list of lies courtesy of Barack Obama…

Our nation continues to suffer under what passes for guidance under undoubtedly one of the worse administrations in American history. Divisive, malicious, and vindictive…yet utterly incompetent. How they manage to merge those two is beyond me!……..

“We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay…”

“Today I’m pledging to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office…”

“As soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means!….”

“We agree on reforms that will reduce the costs of healthcare. Families will save on their premiums..”

April Fool!

“We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country…”

April Fool!

“I don’t take a dime of their (lobbyists) money, and when I am president they won’t find a job in my White House!”

April Fool!

“I pledge to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution..”

April Fool!

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!”

April Fool!

“Eighty percent of Americans support including higher taxes as part of the debt ceiling deal…”

April Fool!

“If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan! Period!”…

BIG, BIG, BIG, April Fool!

Face it, America….you continue to fall prey to lie after lie after lie.. And, as it has been noted, THIS isn’t politics as usual, the give and take, back and forth…this administration has managed, and continues to do so, to inflict damage upon the well being of this nation, the likes we’ve never seen….and THAT is no APRIL FOOL!

The sadly clueless and FROZEN (brain) star of Showtime’s “House of Lies” proves how detached she’s become with a moronic tweet about rich people paying higher taxes…I’m sure the Feds would be happy to tack on a little something extra to Ms. Bell’s tax bill…  @IMKristenBell

This is brief, I know…but, you get the point…These are just four examples if rampant idiocy omnipresent in our culture, our media…the day to day narrative. These past 5 plus years have been utterly detrimental, to say the least, to the well being of the United States. It’s this kind of mindless, opportunistic garbage that passes of astute observation. When, in truth, these individuals, and more like them, lack even a shred of the capability to apply practical thought to what they’re saying…and what they believe. What a sad, sad state of affairs…

Our only hope lies in more and more of us realizing what complete lunacy is…and these guys are pointing the way…

‘Are We There Yet?’

File photo of Obama and Biden in Wilmington

I know this is a foolish question, but do you ever feel as if your concerns about government, our national future, your children’s future, is all just a big joke to our Washington politicians? THEIR concerns are NOT yours. THEIR day to day is NOTHING like yours. Barack Obama and Joe Biden, two of THE MOST DISCONNECTED individuals to grace the executive branch of government, haven’t the slightest CLUE what worries most Americans. And the sad part is, they don’t seem to care.

So, I’m left to ask if we’re there yet…Have we reached the point where our collective disgust will prompt us to make serious changes, come the next election? Possibly. Likely? I doubt it.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

This latest ridiculous example of how out of touch those that purport to serve really are, is the Senate Democrats and their all night session discussing climate change with California’s loony Barbara Boxer leading the way! No matter where your beliefs fall on that issue, an all nighter on the matter is a glittering jewel of how these moronic, arrogant individuals avoid the more pressing, serious issues of the day. They don’t have the fortitude and they lack the personal integrity it takes to tackle the serious problems of the here and now. The national debt, unemployment, the IRS targeting, the NSA spying fiasco, our shrinking presence on the international stage, and the disparaging of our military. Americans struggle to pay bills and provide…if they’re fortunate enough to find work. Yet, the Senate Democrats would MUCH prefer to literally lend lip service to “CLIMATE CHANGE”! Other talking points, such as “immigration reform”, “gay marriage” “gender equality”…the list goes on and on… are not to be diminished in their own right. But, we face endangerments to our nation as a whole that threaten our existence. They don’t seem to matter to those that lack the guts to face the truth.

On top of all of that, let’s not forget we’re all a bunch of liars and ‘tea baggers’…..

Harry_Reid_NRSC_Ad_ObamaCare_Liars

Whatever works best for the camera..to this demographic..to that voting block…to this constituency. That’s what matters to Washington. Republican AND Democrat. Whatever they can tell you that will perpetuate the lie. That’s what sells..and guarantees their future in office.

So…it seems the joke’s on us. We send these idiots back to Washington time and time again. And the cycle continues. We’re on a fast track to nowhere. Eventually we will slam into the brick wall of reality. And that’s NOT going to be a pretty sight. The signs are all there. The question is whether we have the wisdom to heed the warnings. As things are now, I think we all know the answer to that question…

In the meantime, the joke continues in Washington…
