Postal Workers Caught in Tax Refund Fraud

A ring of criminals operating out of the Dominican Republic have been running a massive income tax refund scam in which billions of false income tax filings have cost the taxpayers billions of dollars in losses. In an article in The Wall Street Journal we see the following information:

Between October 2010 and June 2011, the IRS received phony tax returns based on stolen Puerto Rican identities that would have led to the disbursement of $5.6 billion to alleged fraudsters, two of these people said. It is unclear how much money the IRS ultimately sent but one person familiar with the matter said an estimated $2 billion in checks was distributed.

Bronx mail carrier Robert Anthony Warren and at least two other USPS employees have been convicted and are doing prison time for their part in the scam. Back in September five men were also convicted of participating in the same scam and sentenced to between 40 and 98 months in prison, while also being ordered to pay a whopping $12 million in restitution. Good luck recovering any of that cash there. With all of these arrests and convictions, has the oh-so-competent federal government shut down this scam for good? Not quite, as can be seen in a statement from the Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office was among the first to investigate the group: (emphasis added)

“What we have uncovered may very well be the tip of the iceberg,” said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office was among the first to investigate the group. “It’s a massive fraud.”

With a federal government that is running up trillion dollar deficits faster than the Roadrunner rocketing past the outgunned Wiley E. Coyote in cartoon-land,  as the federal bureaucracy grows bigger by the minute….so increases these numbers of incidents that highlight their incompetence and dysfunctionality. In the meantime, Senate progressives are currently working tirelessly (yes.. sarcasm intended) to rig up a massive $42 billion-dollar-bailout of the USPS UNION pension fund under the guise of…. reform.  From the thieves that are scamming the taxpayers from the Dominican Republic through fraudulent tax refund checks, to today’s Senate Socialists giving their Democrat-supporting labor [USPS] Unions $42 billion tax dollars, America is being robbed blind on a daily basis, in more ways than one. Americans should keep this in mind as they head to the voting booth in November.

Look Who’s Jet-Setting on the Taxpayer Dime This Week

While many Americans are cutting back on household budgets to put $4.00 a gallon gasoline in their vehicles to get back and forth to work, a couple of Obama-appointed government employees have been caught jet-setting to Paris and Tokyo recently. Just like Obama claiming that his current taxpayer-funded reelection campaign blitz and fundraisers are “policy speeches,” when the news about these lavish jet-setters taxpayer-funded trips to Tokyo and Paris reaches the American public, they can expect numerous phony excuses as to why they are supposedly on “official business.”  Rob Bluey, of Hot Air.com outed these two taxpayer-abusing, elitist jet-setters as follows:

While many Americans were filling up their tanks with $4 gasoline this week, Energy Secretary Steven Chu was enjoying Major League Baseball’s opening game on a taxpayer-funded trip to Tokyo. Taxpayers were also footing the bill for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to spend a few days in Paris.

Chu was outed by The Washington Gaurdian’s John Soloman when he discovered a picture sent by Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s official taxpayer-funded twitter account of a baseball game in Tokyo Japan. Meanwhile, Lisa Jackson, she of this EPA-fame, was in Paris France, to “meet with environmental leaders from more than 40 nations to discuss the Agency’s international efforts on urban sustainability.”  Global government, when coupled with so-called urban sustainability and climate change fear-mongering propaganda, are basic anti-capitalistic stealth forms of Socialism, which is dependent on the Marxist principles of wealth redistribution through the overthrowing of established governments to enact social justice fraud.

Lisa Jackson, the lifelong global warming political activist fits right in with the urban sustainability pimps of Europe, which by the way, is in the middle of the worst economic crisis in modern history. All of these anti-capitalist mandates coming out of these types of U/N European Socialistic programs are dependent on one thing for survival: The blatant theft of American wealth to be “redistributed” to the less productive societies of the world through dishonest fear-mongering from globalists and environmental terrorists posing as green-earth saviors. Thus the Obama administration uses taxpayer dollars to fund Jackson’s lavish Paris gig… to further undermine American sovereignty and take away her freedom that has made American freedom the envy of the world for centuries.

Do Americans really want four more years of watching Obama-appointees fly around the world to promote the injection of these types of freedom-robbing European Socialism here in America?  When Americans go to the polls in November they have a simple choice: Either vote for American freedom and prosperity through voting for proven conservative politicians, or vote for Obama and the Democrat’s poverty-inducing European Socialism-style insolvency.  The choice is that simple.

 

 

Obama’s Marxist 2012 Reelection Campaign

Barack Obama’s 2012 taxpayer-funded reelection campaign contains many elements, including massive doses of class warfare and racially-divisive rhetoric, (think, ” If I had a son he’d look just like Trayvon”) massive misinformation about the viability of taxpayer-funded green energy programs, the always-loved-by-the-far-left-radicals hate-speech directed at anyone in America who is successful (think taxing anyone making over $250k) with that last aspect also including the misinformation-laden Obama 2012 war on big oil companies. Barack Obama’s current 2012 reelection campaign rhetoric shows America a man who must attempt to distract American voters from looking at his dismal record during his historic failure of a first [and only] term as president of the United States of America.

What most Americans do not seem to be able to grasp today is the fact that Obama’s current campaign rhetoric follows very closely with another centuries-old form of using misinformation to nudge public perceptions campaign, that of one Karl Marx, the founder of what has now known worldwide as Marxism.

Marxism, according to Bing Dictionary is defined as: a: the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in which class struggle is a central element in the analysis of social change in Western societies, and b:  political ideology based on the theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. (emphasis added)

There it is, Obama2012 defined in one simple sentence: Class struggle being promoted as a main element in a drive to effect social change. This also goes hand in glove with Obama’s Hope and Change campaign of 2008, where he promised to “fundamentally transform America” and where he told Joe the plumber that we must “spread the wealth around.”

 In yet another taxpayer-funded campaign speech last week, Obama continued his call for Karl Marx-inspired wealth redistribution in his continuing war on big oil companies, as Larry Kudlow explains:

“Once again this week, the president was out on the campaign trail bashing and oil and gas companies. And he continued to spread major falsehoods about this industry, which I guess is the polite way to put it.

 Obama is obsessed with oil and gas. He is a prisoner of the left-wing environmental groups. And really, he’s extending his leftist class-warfare attack from rich people to successful oil and gas producers.”
“What seems to have Obama especially steamed is the fact that the conventional-energy companies are profitable. Especially the five largest. So he wants to tax them. He then wants to redistribute their income to his favorite green-energy firms. Sound familiar? I don’t know which is more important to the president — the fact that he hates fossil fuel, or the fact that he hates success. Or that he wants an energy-entitlement state.” (emphasis added)
Enabled by the media-misfits of today, Barack Obama is being given a pass by political operatives posing as reporters on Obama’s obvious implementation of Marxist policies to transform America. Anyone who points out the definition of Marxism, and it’s obvious direct correlation of Barack Obama’s ideology in policy-making being based on the teachings of Karl Marx as a way to fundamentally transform a nation… are immediately labeled  as a right-wing extremist or other nasty Left-wing catch-phrases dug up from third grade name-calling contests.
Karl Marx is quoted from The Communist Manifesto he authored, as stating,  “The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Working Men of All Countries, Unite!”  This last sentence  has been used frequently by Obama-Union-Operative Andy Stern, the head of SEIU and President Barack Obama’s most frequent White House guest, as stated during a discussion about his planned globalization of SEIU. In case our readers are not familar with just who Andy Stern truly is, along with his Obama connections and Marxist ideology, read this.
In summary, Barack Obama’s proven Marxist ideology has been evident for anyone actually interesting in vetting this man as a candidate for U.S. President during the 2008 presidential elections. That simply did not happen, by design. The media has steadfastly chosen to ignore these facts and still does today to the detriment of America. In the immortal words of the truth-telling Andrew Breitbart, may God rest his soul, “we fully intend to vet Barack Obama in the 2012 elections.” Barack Obama is a Marxist bent on transforming America by destroying her capitalistic system and free markets, empowering a statist central government over it’s people, while taking from one class of citizens to redistribute it to another to buy votes and power. This is right out in the open for all to see in one aspect or another, in every taxpayer-funded speech Obama gives today. All you have to do is listen for it.
The revolution made progress, not by its immediate tragicomic achievements but by the creation of a powerful, united counter-revolution, an opponent in combat with whom the party of overthrow ripened into a really revolutionary party.”  Karl Marx- 1850 from Class Struggle in France .

 

Obama to Speed up Reviews of Great Lakes Wind Power Projects.. That Do Not Exist

The campaigner-in-chief has really stepped in it this time. Barack Obama, facing the fact that due to a miserable economy and extremely high gas prices crushing middle class Americans, he will assuredly be a one and done President in November…  so now he wants the American people to believe he is really ramping up U.S. energy production … as in windmills. From Fox News comes this enlightening announcement:

The Obama administration announced an agreement with Great Lakes states on off-shore wind projects….and has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the  governors of Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York and Pennsylvania to  streamline reviews of potential off-shore wind projects. (emphasis added)

 

 As in the Solyndra green energy scam that saw half a billion tax dollars funneled to Obama campaign bundlers and big donors, one can only guess which of Obama’s Democrat-crony-capitalists are standing in the windmill line to scam the taxpayers out of a few billion more tax dollars in exchange for big campaign donations. So far it’s pretty hush-hush, as can be seen by the fact that as of right now, these so-called soon to be expedited wind mill projects that Obama is bragging about…..do not currently exist!

However, when asked how much faster permits could get approved, White  House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy  Sutley said, “There currently aren’t any projects seeking approval…”

This is a sign of a president who knows he can not run on his miserable failure of a record during his first term in office, so he turns to making announcements about speeding up reviews that do not exist. Of course there will be plenty of Obama donors lining up to rake in the cash while defrauding the American people through these green energy scams.. eventually. Meanwhile, American oil and gas production and permitting has been stopped dead in it’s tracks under Obama’s regime, including blocking the Keystone XL pipeline that would deliver hundreds of thousands of oil to U.S refineries the minute it was allowed to go online.

This is a man ( Barack Hussein Obama) who the people now see saying one thing in fluffy campaign speeches.. while doing just the opposite behind their backs.  Barack Obama just does not understand that when Americans can’t go on vacation because of $4.00 a gallon gasoline this summer, and seeing him stop U.S oil production while giving away billions of dollars to his campaign donors for failed green energy scams… they will say enough is enough and give him the boot in the November elections. He is in for a very harsh lesson in reality this November.

House Budget Proposal Votes Tell an Interesting Truth

On Wednesday, March 28th 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on 3 different budget proposals, all that ended up with the same results of being shot down by huge numbers. One budget proposal went down in flames by an astounding vote of 0-414.  Rick Mulvaney (R-SC) proposed an alternative budget plan based on President Obama’s 2013 budget numbers and it went down in an historic 0-414 vote. Not one vote in support of Obama’s 2013 budget. Mulvaney went on to explain that “The budget that the President offered and that is contained in this amendment never balances,” he said. “It is a balanced approach to reach a never-balancing budget.”

 Thus Obama’s budget proposal is exposed as nothing more than increased government spending under the guise of Obama’s often-used motto stating his desire to a “balanced approach in creating a budget.” And don’t forget the always-included tax hikes present in every Liberal Democrat [balanced] budget proposal of the past 5 years.  Nothing proves these points more emphatically than the Obama-Democrat yearly deficits since 2007, which have averaged over $1 trillion dollars in increased national debt since the year Democrats took over complete control of the U.S. Congress.

The CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) put forth their own pathetic attempt of a  budget proposal also on Wednesday. It went down in flames by a vote of 107-314.  Republicans stated that the CBC budget proposal would spend far more money than the U.S. government has available. No surprise there. Why does the U.S. Congress even have a Black Caucus anyway? There isn’t an Asian caucus, or even a White caucus, even though white people still make up a huge majority of the population today.  With the current race-baiting media circus of the Trayvon Martin tragedy being used by fake Democrats to further divide the nation this week, maybe it’s high time Americans call for the immediate disbanding of the discriminatory CBC.

The third budget proposal voted down in The House on Wednesday was a bi-partisan proposal put forth by Steve LaTourette (R-OH) and Jim Cooper (D-Tenn) that was modeled after many aspects of the Obama-created Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction commission. This proposal too went down in flames 38-382. Instead of responsible governing by enacting solid cuts in big government debt-spending, 382 members of The House have now been exposed as being the main engine of America’s plunge off the Greek-style debt-cliff.

Up next will be the passage of the Paul Ryan House budget proposal 2.0. Chris Chocola breaks down Ryan’s new proposal as follows: (emphasis added)

There’s a lot to like about Paul Ryan’s budget proposal. It cuts some spending. It flattens the tax code down to just two individual marginal tax rates. It also includes some innovative policies designed to halt the unsustainable growth of health care entitlement spending. However, on balance, the budget is disappointing for fiscal conservatives for two main reasons: It waives the spending restraint that was agreed to in last year’s debt limit deal, and it doesn’t balance the budget until 2040. Broken promises and unbalanced budgets as far as the eye can see are neither good policy nor a good campaign rallying cry.

As informed Americans stand on the edge of the Greek-style debt cliff looking out across the debt-laden landscape of their children’s future,when looking at the current budgetary buffoonery of Congress today, they are being left with 2 simple choices: Vote for Obama and the Democrats in 2012 and jump to their deaths right then and there, or vote for Republicans and hop on back of the slow-moving freight train that is on the exact same track of financial disaster as the Obama high-speed train to financial hell and chaos.  One kills you this decade, while the other slowly pushes you off the debt-cliff to the inevitable chaotic collapse of America and the Armageddon that financial insolvency brings with it. Not much of a choice there is it?

 

Senate Socialists Bailout Buffoonery Continues

The United States Senate, led by Liberal Democrat Harry Reid, is lining up at the taxpayer-funded debt-lovers cash trough again this week in the form of trying to “fix” another crisis of their own making. Meet  S. 1789  , or as today’s Senate Progressives call it, the 21st Century Postal Act of 2012: A bill to improve, sustain, and transform the United States Postal Service. This bill is sponsored by the lifelong fake Democrat posing as an Independent, Joe Lieberman. (L-D-CT) This USPS bailout bill  poses as a bi-partisan piece of work based on the support of the co-sponsorship from another fake Republican posing as a moderate, Susan Collins. (RINO-ME) The cost of the Senate-Progressives-USPS-bailout bill to the U.S. taxpayers? A cool $41 billion soon-to-be-borrowed taxpayer dollars.

For a more detailed understanding of just why the taxpayer is being forced to bailout the USPS by Senate Progressives this week, check out The United States Postal Ponzi Scheme.

It is none other than the U.S. Government itself that has caused this most recent “crisis” that threatens to shut down the USPS. In the words of Mr. Donahoe, the Postmaster General himself back in the summer of 2011, we see glimpses of the big government intervention causing the collapse of what was once a proud, viable U.S. Mail delivery system:

“The Postal Service is in a crisis today because it operates within a restrictive business model and has limited flexibility to respond to a changing marketplace,” To which he added, “We need the ability to operate more as a business does. This applies to the way we provide products and services, allocate resources, configure our retail, delivery and mail processing networks and manage our workforce.” (emphasis added)

That info-byte above is the Postmaster General of the USPS himself, begging the wizards of Congress to allow him to reform the USPS system so that they would not have to be bailed out in 2012 by the taxpayers due to the impending insolvency. Congress basically said no, and refused to allow Mr. Donohue to enact the needed reforms. Enter S. 1789, which also has another progressive debt-loving fake Republican on the co-sponsor’s list, Sen. Scott Brown. (RINO-MA) While select politicians and D.A.M. media operatives will hail this USPS bailout bill as bi-partisan during the coming weeks, it in fact, only has the support of Progressive Senators who are lining up trying to score political points for the upcoming elections.

The description of S. 1789 claims that is it designed to sustain,improve, and transform the U.S, Postal System. What will the $41 billion borrowed tax dollars be used for? As Daniel Horowitz  informs the citizenry, “This time, taxpayers will be tapped for another $41 billion to subsidize the healthcare retirement benefits of postal workers – benefits that are quite scarce in the private sector.”  The Progressive Senators USPS Bailout Bill of 2012 will not in fact “reform” the USPS into a more business-like sustainable entity, as claimed, but once again kicks the insolvency can down the road and opens the door to never-ending taxpayer bailouts of the dysfunctional, unsustainable USPS, much like the Progressive thievery  of the past two decades known as the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac “everyone deserves a house, regardless of ability to pay” programs that led to the housing and mortgage crisis. For a look into another reason for the USPS insolvency, check out the Liberal election-buying Union manipulation that is also behind this scheme, please see The USPS is Broke.

Call up your Senators this week, demand that they say no to the Progressive USPS Bailout Bill of 2012, (S.1789) and let every single one of them know you will be paying close attention to their votes on it.

Obama Quietly Gives Waivers on Iran Sanctions Mandate

File this one under the “Obama says one thing, and then does another” file of 2012. From NightWatch,  we see that Hillary Clinton’s State Dept., along with President Obama have told another blatant lie to the American and world citizenry concerning the latest “get tough” Iran sanctions  announced with much fanfare back on Nov. 21st, 2011: (emphasis added)

The Obama administration on Tuesday exempted 10 European Union countries and Japan from US economic sanctions because they have significantly reduced their purchases of petroleum from Iran. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton granted waivers to Belgium, Britain, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Japan, meaning that banks and other financial institutions based there will not be hit with penalties under US law for a renewable period of 180 days.

Comment: The exemptions signify that the sanctions against Iran are somehow not aimed at key countries in economic duress and that depend on Iranian oil. This is a curious exemption because the termination of most international banking relations will make it difficult for the Europeans and the Japanese to pay for their oil.

Note: Britain is among the countries that will be allowed to continue to do business with Iran, despite the claimed Obama/Hillary “get tough” sanctions on Iran. This is astounding, in the fact that it was the British that initiated the new “get tough on Iran” policies recently. From the Iran Sanctions link above from Fox News we see the following info-bytes:

The British announced the first measures, declaring they would cut off all  financial ties with Iranian banks to stem the flow of funds for its nuclear and  ballistic missile programs. Britain’s new restrictions included an order that  its financial institutions cease doing business with all Iranian banks,  including the country’s Central Bank. The ban extends to all branches and  subsidiaries of Iranian banks, amounting to an unprecedented British attempt to  cut off an entire country’s banking industry off from the British financial  sector.

The sanctions are aimed at “preventing the Iranian  regime from acquiring nuclear weapons,” British Treasury chief George  Osborne said.

Once again, we see that the Obama administration, in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. propagandists had announced to the world new “get tough sanctions” against Iran to deter their efforts to secure nuclear weapons of mass destruction, yet have already given massive waivers that will allow the British, among other countries, to in fact…. continue to put money into the coffers of the totalitarian regime of Iran, thus allowing them to continue their pathway to effect their stated desires to wipe Israel off the map with nuclear bombs. These fake get tough sanctions on Iran prove once again that Barack Obama is as phony as a three-dollar-bill.

 

Big Government Starves the Homeless.. to Keep Them From Getting Too Fat.

Just when the average American thinks today’s government could not fall any further out of touch with reality…N.Y.C. Mayor Bloomberg has stopped food deliveries from charitable organizations that feed the homeless under the guise that… the homeless people of N.Y.C are just too fat!  You just can not make this stuff up folks: From The Daily Caller we see the headline, NYC  ban on unhealthy food at homeless shelters irks volunteers . Have churches and synogogues in N.Y.C. been proven guilty of poisoning the homeless with rotten meat or dangerous pesticide-laden veggies, causing Mayor Bloomberg’s nanny-state thugocracy to crack down on the folks feeding the homeless here?  Not quite, as can be seen in the above-linked DC article: (emphasis added)

The source of the new ban is a mayor’s office policy memorandum. Mr. Stier,  a senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, who obtained  a copy of the memo just weeks ago after being tipped off by a local cleric who said that his religious organization was being bullied by the city for providing food that allegedly contained too much salt and fat content to the homeless or near-homeless, senior citizens who were too aged to work, and recovering drug addicts and alcoholics.

Of course as with many nanny-state totalitarian edicts, the charities weren’t informed by the Mayor’s memorandum ahead of time, instead finding about the new N.Y.C. prohibition against donating food to homeless shelters until they showed up with donations:

“Churches and synagogues have been bringing food to city shelters for decades,” said Stier, a lawyer and a former official in Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration. “Now they’re being turned away. Shelter managers told them they were forbidden by the city’s homeless department bureaucrats from accepting the food. The charities had to throw away the food.”

Of course in Mayor Bloomberg’s common sense ideologically-depraved world, denying food to the homeless will….. keep them from getting too obese. Homeless drug addicts will also be made “healthier” by the bureaucratic takeover of Bloomberg’s homeless food donations mandate by limiting the fat and salt content in any food donated to feed them.  Of course, someone will still have  to provide “healthy” food to the homeless and needy people of N.Y.C. Who will that be, hand-picked people from another long line of crony-capitalists from the Bloomberg organization whom are ready to reap massive tax breaks with their support for Bloomberg’s new “healthy homeless” policy?  How will the more expensive  “healthy food” for the N.Y.C homeless be paid for? How about the possibility of  imposing more stealth tax increases on the already highest-taxed city in America to pay for this scheme, all under the guise of helping people?

Big government enforcer, Mayor Bloomberg and company are trying to imply that this healthy food mandate for homeless shelters will lead to “revolutionary” new ideology in eating habits across America in the future. Will the next starving homeless person you see eating out of a dumpster in N.Y.C. stop to read the ingredients label for salt and fat content before eating it?  Only in Liberal La-La-Land would anyone actually believe that big-government excuse for Mayor Bloomberg’s latest round of tyranny, posing as concern for the “healthy” feeding of the homeless in N.Y.C.

 

Paul Krugman: “Natural Born Liar”

Paul Krugman, he of the once-great N.Y. Times recently penned the article  Natural Born Drillers , in which he makes completely outlandishly false claims about the number of jobs created by the oil and gas industry, to go along with his usual fallacy-floundering Liberal propaganda punditry. Mr. Krugman finished up his latest ( and already discredited) propaganda piece with the following lines: (emphasis added)

“The rest of the answer is simply the fact that conservatives have no other job-creation ideas to offer.  And intellectual bankruptcy, I’m sorry to say, is a problem that no amount of drilling and fracking can solve.”

Speaking of blatant intellectual bankruptcy, here is a great example of it, pulled right from Krugman’s latest puff-piece masquerading as holier-than-thou opinion-speak from the great Liberal “Doctor of Propaganda” of the N.Y. Times:  “Employment in oil and gas extraction has risen more than 50 percent since the middle of the last decade, but that amounts to only 70,000 jobs, around one-twentieth of 1 percent of total U.S. employment. So the idea that drill, baby, drill can cure our jobs deficit is basically a joke.”

A person would in fact, have to be worse than intellectually bankrupt to print that piece of propaganda right there, when we look at these facts from Steve Maley:

  Indeed, the industry subsector called “Oil and Gas Extraction: NAICS 211″, (part of the Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction sector) shows the gain in jobs he describes, from roughly 120,000 jobs in 2004 to about 190,000 now. And he apparently stopped there.  190,000 jobs? Doesn’t that seem kinda low for an industry that comprises 8% or so of the economy?

Well, of course it is, because lots of oil industry jobs are counted in other categories. Most notably, the related subsector “Support Activities for Mining: NAICS 213″.

In NAICS 211, you find geologists, draftsmen and petroleum engineers like me, employed directly by the oil companies. NAICS 213 contains people that work for the “service companies” who work for the oil companies. These companies would include Halliburton, Transocean and Schlumberger, the companies that drill, frack, service and equip the wells. Job titles include roughnecks, roustabouts and service pump operators.

NAICS 213 is twice as big as NAICS 211: 379,100 at last count. NAICS 213 is where you find the really explosive job growth: nearly 200,000 jobs since 2004, including almost 70,000 just in the last year.

Mr. Maley is a petroleum engineer, unlike “Dr. Krugman” who, as far as anyone can prove, has never worked a day in his life, let alone worked anywhere in the energy industry. (other than trying to pass his intellectually bankrupt propaganda-punditry onto the uninformed citizenry of America under the guise of journalism)

Of course Krugman also uses his latest propaganda piece to bash Republicans for wanting to drill baby drill, by trying to make the already discredited statement that, “More and more, Republicans are telling us that gasoline would be cheap and jobs plentiful if only we would stop protecting the environment and let energy companies do whatever they want.”  Krugman makes the jaw-dropping straw man argument of implying that oil and gas companies are not regulated at all and can just “do what they want” to supposedly ruin the environment.  Colorado alone just mandated a whole slew of new rules and regulations for oil and gas extraction and environmental protection. The Marcellus Shale Corporation  exposed the ludicrous “end of pipe” water quality mandates in Pennsylvania as follows:  “There is not a single water treatment facility in Pennsylvania that could meet this unreasonable benchmark, which will not provide any additional environmental benefit.” North Dakota also has new oil regulations starting April 1st of this year. Does that information in any way point to an oil and gas industry that, as Krugman states, would “let energy companies do whatever they want?” No it doesn’t.

When it comes to actually reporting the facts, Mr. Krugman falls way short of anything even remotely connected to the truth, as we can see in his latest opinion piece claiming that oil and gas extraction of the “middle ” of the past decade has only resulted in 70,000 jobs. Krugman’s propaganda runs parallel to Obama’s recent campaign speeches in which the misinformation about oil and gas industry job creation runs rampant, as is also proven here:

A booming U.S. oil and gas sector was responsible for generating some 9 percent of all new jobs last year, with three indirect jobs for every one directly involved in the industry, a study released on Wednesday found. The report said the oil and gas industry contributed 37,000 direct jobs in 2011, which led to the creation of an additional 111,000 indirect jobs during the same period. It said the multiplier effect for solar and wind energy were lower during operation, but higher at up to 3.3 times during construction.

The U.S. oil and gas industry added 148,000 jobs in 2011 alone Mr. Krugman, which debunks your very simplistic cherry-picking of statistics from the “middle of the last decade” statistical usage to make the false-flag argument about future oil and gas industry job creation that you used in your now debunked Natural Born Drillers article. Man, these Liberals posing as intellectual academics are shameless in their neanderthalic attempts at parroting blatant lies posing as the truth today, and Mr. Krugman is obviously no exception.

 

 

Democrats by the Numbers 2007- 2012

In late 2006, Americans were rolling along with 4.4% unemployment,  the average price for a gallon of gasoline was $2.20,  and America’s total national debt stood at $8.5 trillion dollars.

When comparing the statistics above with those of today after Democrats took over both houses of Congress in ’07, held the Senate in the ’10 elections and the Hope n Change White House of the past 3 1/2 years, the average citizens of other nations must be wondering just what were Americans thinking during the 2006 and 2008 elections?  As the saying goes, numbers do not lie, and Americans made monstrous uninformed voting decisions in ’06 and ’08 and now future generations of Americans will pay the price for these irresponsible actions for decades to come.

 Not only can the consequences of voting for the undefined Hope and Change Liberal’s  “fundamental transformation of America” be measured in [massive new debt] dollars and cents, it must also be measured in the [sure-to-come] loss of American freedom to a big debt-spending, all too powerful nanny-state plutocracy-in-the-making. (also known as the fake Democratic party of 2012.) The current all-powerful Liberal plutocracy must tax the workers more and steal a bigger chunk of American’s wealth to feed the nanny-state monstrosity of big government vote-buying through welfare-style handouts. (always done at the expense of the working man.) The following are the true numbers to consider when thinking about voting for four more years of the Obama/Liberal nanny-state destruction of America  in 2012:

 

TOTAL DEBT end of 2006 – $8.5 trillion (sourced above)  Total debt as of Jan. 2012 - $15.23 trillion dollars.  U.S. debt now equals 100% of the U.S. economy today. In comaprison to other advanced economies, only Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan and Portugal have debts larger than their economies. Four of those countries are also at the root of the current European debt crisis.  Add to that the projected 2012 deficit of another trillion-plus dollars, and America has went from $8.5T in total debt to approx. $17T dollars since 2007. That statistic represents the doubling of all the national debt accrued in America’s history… in just six years of Liberal-Democratic rule.

Gasoline cost Americans $2.20 a gallon in Nov. 2006. (and $1.86 a gal when Obama was sworn in) Today, under Barack Obama’s often-stated {back in ’07, ’08 on the campaign trail] skyrocketing energy prices, Americans are being crushed under the weight of paying $3.80 (national average) for a gallon of gasoline to try to get back and forth to work.  That means the average working American using 20 gallons of gas to get back and forth to work, now pays an extra $32.00 a week. Add that to the increased cost of groceries and other necessary items due to high fuel prices driving up transportation costs, and middle class America is in a world of hurt when it comes to trying to stretch the paycheck today. For many, this will also mean no summer vacation for the family, which happens to be a longstanding tradition in America.

The U.S. unemployment rate was 4.4% in late 2006. Today it is at 8.3%, and has been over 8%  under Barack Obama’s hope and change years in the White House. Should the Bureau of Labor’s numbers-crunchers decide to inject the truth of how many Americans have been taken out of the workforce, (and don’t exist according to them) the effective unemployment rate in America today is actually approaching 15%.

The price of food is also skyrocketing since Liberals took over Congress in 2007, further crushing middle class Americans. As a matter of fact, the price of groceries from 2007 – 2010  increased by an astounding 58%!  Add to that the 4.8% increase in 2011 and the projected additional 3% increase for this year and we have seen the price of groceries increase by a whopping, 65.8% since just 2007, under Liberal [fake]Democrats and the Hope and Change Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Obama since 2007. Of course, big daddy government has a solution for skyrocketing food prices: They will just take more money from the working class taxpayers to hand out more food stamps to buy Democratic votes, as in this reported whopping 70% increase in people receiving food stamps in America since….2007. With facts like these is it any wonder folks refer to Barack Obama and his Liberal operatives in Congress as the Food Stamp President and his Liberal food stamp party of big government nanny-state creators?

Clinton and today’s fake Democrat’s role in causing the housing crisis. Millions of hard working Americans have lost billions of dollars in home equity savings due to the depreciated value of their homes caused by the housing and mortgage crisis. A home bought for $330k in 2007 is now worth about $260k today. Most Americans are actually misinformed about the cause of the housing mortgage crisis.  The actual cause started back in the 90’s, when Congress required government-sponsored enterprises to purchase CRA loans as part of their affordable housing mandate. As these goals increased over time, the GSEs were forced to seek out even riskier loans to purchase. Then, in 1995, the Department of Housing and Urban Development permitted Fannie and Freddie to purchase subprime securities. Then it steamrolled out of control starting  when Republicans were calling for an end to Fannie and Freddie’s “everyone deserves a home, regardless of ability to pay” programs, yet Democrats in Congress let the madness continue unabated. President Clinton was a big part of enabling the housing crisis. With the stroke of his pen, Bill Clinton loosened housing rules  by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods. Liberal Democrats went from “everyone deserves a trophy. regardless of accomplishments”  straight to “everyone deserves a house, regardless of ability to actually pay for said house.” Bottom line is that Bill Clinton could have prevented the housing crisis train wreck by vetoing that bill. Without it Fannie and Freddie could not have put the taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars in home loans to folks who simply could not afford to buy a house.

In summary, middle-class Americans have experienced high unemployment, skyrocketing energy prices, along with budget-busting cost increases of everyday necessities such as food, clothing and transportation since 2007. We have also effectively doubled our national debt since Democrats took over Congress in 2007 and Obama  started implementing his hope and change fundamental transformation of America in 2009. Also of note is that President Obama recently took time out from his 24/7 reelection propaganda-spewing campaign ( funded by the taxpayers) to throw a multi-million dollar dinner party for the great and the good, which also just happened to include… 50 Obama reelection campaign bundlers. ( which is technically illegal) While many Americans struggle to put food on the table today, the elitists gathered in the White House to sip champagne and dine on extravagant menu items, all the while rubbing American’s noses in it with minute by minute television coverage.

Middle class Americans are currently suffering through a 4-year stagnant economy, high inflation ( with more coming) and record amounts of irresponsible new debt to be added to the backs of future Americans. There were about 20 million unemployed or underemployed Americans as of May 2011, and the jobs added during the last 8 months have not averaged enough to keep up with population growth, let alone expand the work force.

Do Americans really want four more years of Obama-nomics, which are rooted in the denial of the above facts?  More importantly can Americans afford four more years of Obama’s fundamental transformation of America? Ask the people of Greece how that irresponsible big government debt-spending works out. Simply put, “American austerity measures are coming, and hell is coming with them.” Which way will Americans vote in November?

 

Dear Energy Chief Chu: You know where you can shove your $50 lightbulb?

Just when the American government appeared to be maxed-out on the stupidity-meter, along comes Energy Secretary Steven Chu awarding $10 million frigging tax dollars for an “affordable green light-bulb” invention. The problem? It costs $50.00 a bulb for starters. Courtesy of NewsMax, we see just how idiotic and completely out of touch with reality Barack Obama and his lunatic-Liberal appointees truly are:

The good news: The Obama administration has awarded a $10 million prize for a “green” but affordable light bulb that’s available to the public.
The bad news: The bulb costs $50.
The “L Prize” was announced by Energy Secretary Steven Chu last year, to push manufacturers to come up with a green bulb “affordable for American families,” The Washington Post reported. The competition also required parts of the bulb to be made in America.
The L Prize winner is a $50 bulb made by Philips. Similar LED bulbs are going for less than half that cost, the Post reported.

Pay attention to that complete paragraph there. “Affordable green energy” now means paying $50.00 for a retread of an already manufactured bulb, the lunatic Liberal running the U.S. Energy dept. has given away $10 million tax dollars for it, and “parts” of the bulb will be made in America. Oh and similar bulbs are already selling for about half the price. IE: $25.00 a bulb! NewsMax goes on to further point just who started the lunacy of charging Americans $50.00 for a light-bulb:

The $10 million contest was meant to ease the transition away from inefficient incandescent light bulbs to more efficient fluorescent and LED bulbs. President George W. Bush signed legislation in 2007 to phase out the old bulbs.

That’s right, the supposedly conservative Republican G.W. Bush, with a Republican-dominated Congress in 2007 started the ball rolling towards this green energy debauchery and crony-capitalism-inducing thievery that has resulted in a $10 million dollar prize, (paid for with your tax dollars) for a moronic Cadillac light bulb that will cost Americans $50 bucks apiece, and which will be manufactured in foreign countries. ( One part will be made in America, just to fool the uninformed masses)

All of this idiocy and blatant government stupidity, (not to mention the theft of taxpayer dollars under the guise of a “prize”) is brought to you by Barack Obama’s Liberal-lunatic appointee, Steven Chu. Does America really want four more years of this Liberal-lunacy? Note: Should Energy Chief Chu not understand the title of this opinion piece, here is a clue: It involves a place where the sun doesn’t shine.

Media Pushing False GM Success Story to Reelect Obama

   ***In living memory of conservative truth-teller Andrew Breitbart who passed away last week at 43 years of age. Andrew dedicated his life to exposing the Liberal media complex, and their constant refusal to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This one’s for you Andrew. Godspeed.***

President Obama has made the GM “success story” a huge part of his reelection campaign of 2012. This false narrative about General Motor’s “record profits” has been constantly inserted into the numerous campaign speeches and fundraisers Obama has been on recently, always under the guise of them being policy speeches. Another fact that needs to be reported, is that these “policy speeches” are nothing more than [taxpayer-funded] reelect Obama pep rallies and campaign tours. Doesn’t America have a legislative body known as the U.S. Congress that is supposed to stop the illegal usage of tax dollars for reelection campaign operations? Congress idly sits by and remains silent, while Americans are bombarded daily with reelect Barack Obama speeches largely paid for by the taxpayer, and parroted on national television by his pals in the media. Stop the nonsense Mr.President, and pay for your own reelection campaign tour.

As far as the recent media bombardment of television replays of Obama campaign speeches trumpeting him as the great savior behind General Motor’s [supposed] record profits of 2011, let’s not forget that it was G.W.Bush and the Democratically-controlled Congress of 2008 who started the big government graft package to the UAW, also known as the auto bailouts. Barack Obama simply took advantage of this already-in-place big government fraud to further enrich his bed-pals over at the UAW in exchange for their campaign support. The false claims about the GM success story of 2011 contains many fallacies, all of which are being pumped out daily by the Liberal media complex to enhance Barack Obama’s reelection image: (emphasis added)

First off we see the Detroit News claiming that GM retook the stage as world’s largest auto maker in 2011. It didn’t take long for this fairy tale to be debunked, as we see from Motor Trend Mag. and the CEO of Volkswagen:

Now Volkswagen is disputing the claims and suggesting that it bested GM last year. According to Automotive News, Volkswagen’s 8.16-million figure doesn’t include sales from commercial truck divisions MAN and Scania. Once those figures are added, it will significantly bolster VW’s annual sales tally.

On top of that, GM’s sales figure was padded with about one million sales by Chinese automakers SAIC Motor Corp. and Wuling Motors Co. — companies with which GM has joint ventures, but in which the American company does not have a controlling stake. If those sales were excluded and VW’s truck figures added, Volkswagen would probably steal the global sales crown from GM.

President Obama should have enough political advisers and speechwriters researching that already-discredited claim, one which he shouldn’t have made in the first place, let alone keep on the repeating that kind of tripe to bolster his image. Yet it makes Obama look good, so expect him to keep on parroting that myth here in 2012. Obviously, the truth does not matter to Obama and his political operatives in the media, especially when there is a reelection campaign to run.

Next we see that “Millions of jobs were created or saved”  due to the taxpayer graft and abuse more widely known as the auto bailouts, which we constantly hear Obama claim  in numerous campaign speeches. What about GM laying off 70% of its employees at a Detroit plant recently, all of whom had just came off an extended layoff posing as a “Christmas break?” Warren Beatty explains The Never Ending Chevy Volt Saga:

“General Motors (GM), or Government Motors, announced on Friday, March 2, 2012, that it will suspend Chevrolet Volt production for five weeks to “align production with demand.” GM told 1,300 employees at its Detroit Hamtramck production facility that they will be temporarily laid off from March 19 to April 23, as the company halts production of the Chevrolet Volt and its European counterpart, the Opel Ampera. The plant had resumed production on February 6, 2012, after a prolonged Christmas holiday shutdown.”

Not only has the UAW [that now controls GM] been voraciously feeding at the taxpayer-funded TARP-trough, GM has also sucked down millions of tax dollars through the D.O.E. green energy programs. The Chevy Volt scam should be filed under double-dipping taxpayer abuse 101, while also being cross-filed under massive-taxpayer-funded green-energy-failures, right next to the green-cars-for-the-rich-Obama-supporters file. Taxpayers were subsidizing the Chevy Volt fireball-waiting-to-happen junker at the rate of $7500.00 per unit sold in 2011. In Obama’s latest Chevy Volt scam, he has asked the taxpayers to pay for an even bigger subsidy for the Chevy Volt: A whopping $10,000.00 dollars a pop! ( in his latest proposed budget for 2013) The Obama media complex was on TV last weekend blaming the Chevy Volt failure on… wait for it… bad publicity. Yet yesterday, a GM spokesman and Obama-puppet announced that one of the reasons the Volt plant workers were laid off is to “retool” the plant, which includes improvements to rebuild the battery cooling system in the Volt to prevent people from being burned alive while in it, or having their homes burned down while charging it. Which lie are the people supposed to believe there?

GM made $9 billion in 2011; how much did they pay in their fair share taxes? ZERO. See this Harvard law School Forum paper, on how Obama’s favorite tax evasion felon, and current treasury secretary, Tim Geithner gave GM and the UAW a $45 billion dollar tax break, which results in them being exempt from paying their fair share of taxes for about a decade or longer. Take away GM’s taxpayer-funded subsidies and illegal tax exemptions, and lo and behold the great reelect Obama GM success story is proven to be more in line with Marxist propaganda designed to fool the masses, as opposed to any form of truth-telling and government transparency. When is the last time anyone [ if ever] saw the mainstream media report on GM’s illegal tax exemption of $45 billion?  The Liberal Media Complex refuses to tell the truth as far as the GM refusing to pay their fair share in taxes-driven success story goes, and this mandate comes right down from the White House to the media to protect Obama and enhance his reelection chances.

Finally, as American’s watch President Obamacontinue to boast about GM’s “record profits”, ( while paying zero taxes) we see this from Ed Morrissey: Great news: Le Bailoutte de Peugeot avec Le US Taxpayer Francs, in which we see that GM buying stock in another failing car company, Peugeot of France, and one which was reduced to junk bond status the day after the “purchase.”

So how did that work out?  About as well as you’d imagine.  As soon as GM had some cash, it decided to invest it — in another car company whose bonds had achieved le junk status:

Attention U.S. taxpayers:  You now own a piece of a French car company that is drowning in red ink.

That’s right.  In a move little noticed outside of the business pages, General Motors last week bought more than $400 million in shares of PSA Peugeot Citroen – a 7 percent stake in the company. …

Peugeot can undoubtedly use the cash.  Last year, Peugeot’s auto making division lost $123 million.  And on March 1 – just a day after the deal with GM was announced – Moody’s downgraded Peugeot’s credit rating to junk status with a negative outlook, citing “severe deterioration” of its finances.

In other words, General Motors essentially just dumped more than $400 million of taxpayer assets on junk bonds.

What really proves the point that the mainstream media is promoting the reelection of Barack Obama through parroting the phony GM success story, is the fact that exactly zero major news networks have reported on GM’s recent purchase of 7% of Peugeot, and the subsequent downgrade to junk bond status the day after GM pumped $400 million bucks into the company.  ABC did report one troubling aspect of Government Motors purchasing another in-the-red car company, which is quite telling on it’s own:

ABC’s Jonathan Karl notes that while GM bought a big stake in Peugeot, the Peugeot family had an opportunity to buy a stake in GM.  They passed on that “opportunity,” which just proves that the Peugeot family is smarter than GM.

And Barack Obama is betting that America will be gullible enough to believe his media operatives fairy tale narrative on the great GM Success Story of 2012, and reward him with four more years in office, and to prove how well the Liberal media complex has sold this GM success-charade to the masses. As  the uber-courageous truth-teller and unabashed conservative, Andrew Breitbart would ask America: “Who are you going to believe when you go to the polls in 2012 to pick the next President of the United States, the Liberal media complex… or the truth contained herein concerning the big GM success lie of 2012?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sandra Fluke: D.A.M. Member, Political Activist, Phony Victim

The Democratic Attack Machine recently rolled out a supposed 23 year old college student named Sandra Fluke to use as an innocent-looking “victim” who was being denied her “women’s health rights” by a religious university. Georgetown University, to be exact, where she made the choice to attend, even though she admits to researching Georgetown University and their policies about birth control beforehand. Democrats tried to insert this phony plant, (more on that later) by using an ambush tactic of not notifying the Committee Chairman ahead of time, simply because this “Fluke” is neither an expert on women’s health, a religious scholar, and certainly not a constitutional law scholar, which are just some of the related qualifications that would suggest that Fluke would be able to add anything substantial to the committee discussion. No, Sandra Fluke is now proven to be nothing more than a discredited political activist puppet, and just another tool for the desperate Democratic Attack Machine of 2012.

It has now come to light that Sandra Fluke is a 30 [not 23] year-old political activist/feminist/typical Democratic Attack Machine disingenuous disgrace. The only thing missing on her just-now-coming-to-light resume’ would be her probable connections to the GLBT political activist front groups. This fake episode of the supposed poor, young college student being abused and denied her “women’s health-care rights” while being paraded before Congress had all the makings of a D.A.M. farce right from the beginning. Fluke’s demanding other’s be forced to pay for her birth control and abortion pills is right out of the Planned Parenthood manual, along with a smattering of the supposed Occupy victim-card players propaganda and filthy common beggar syndrome..

The stench of desperate debt-spending Democrats [soon to be booted out of Congress in this year’s elections] during this charade brings back haunting memories of childhood trips to the local dump, where the stench of rotting food and trash left an indelible impression on a child for months to come. Low and behold, Democrats had the reelection campaign cash-begging emails all set to go the minute this farce was ramped up by the media. D.A.M. also used this farce to try to take down the truth-telling Rush Limbaugh by calling for advertisers to boycott his radio show. ( and of course you can donate to the campaign coffers of the desperate Senate Democrats while you are at it, them being such honorable people)

Of course the head of D.A.M., Mr. Barack Obama designed this whole charade of mandating religious organizations to pay for contraceptives and abortion pills to distract from the real issues facing Americans today, including the stagnant economy, high unemployment, and $4 dollar-a-gallon gasoline that his policies have crushed the middle class under the weight of. Barack is the most desperate Democrat of all when it comes to the upcoming elections, and this whole charade proves it. Note: Why not just let the Liberals pay for the abortion pills that they also claim are for “health reasons” and are now trying to refer to that rat poison as “medicine?”  How about putting your money where your mouth is Barbara Boxer. Today’s Liberal [fake] Democrats never do that, instead they are constantly devising disingenuous plots to spend other people’s money.

 

 

Abound Solar Joins Growing List of Obama Green Energy Failures

 Abound Solar of Longmont, Colorado recently announced the laying off of 70% of it’s workforce and delayed/cancelled plans for a new plant in Indiana. Just like the Solyndra Solar Panel company failure and other green energy schemes designed to be Democratic donor pocket-stuffers, Abound received hundreds of millions of dollars in Steven Chu-approved DOE green energy loans from the U.S. taxpayer. $400 million dollars to be exact. And just like Solyndra, this is a taxpayer-funded  failure designed by another Democratic big government grifter, Mr. Pat Stryker, the founder of Bohemian Companies. ( an Abound investor)

 The Denver Post, while reporting about Abound’s recent announcement of laying off 70% of it’s workforce, and pointing towards another $400 million dollar loss that will be shoved down the taxpayers throats, forgot/refused/was incapable of that type of truth-telling about it being a big Obama bundler-financier behind the Abound green energy failure. The Denver Post did make the effort to publish all of the very same lame, tired excuses ( as we heard from Solyndra) on why this green energy company failed:

“We are facing tough market conditions and falling prices,” said Steve Abely, Abound’s chief financial officer.
The price for solar panels has collapsed — dropping almost 60 percent to $1.10 a watt between 2009 and 2011, according to industry consultant Solarbuzz.The decline was caused by Chinese manufacturers, backed by low-cost government loans, ramping up production, Abely said.
The Abound green energy company, according to one of the thousands of taxpayer-funded campaign speeches by Barack Hussein Obama, was supposed to  “create whole new industries and hundreds of thousands of new jobs in America.” However, fourteen months later the company is bleeding financially, laying off hundreds of workers, shutting down production to retool, and complaining that it is all China’s fault. This scenario also fits the [Solyndra] pattern of Abound laying off it’s main production force due to being insolvent, yet staying in business to “retool.”
Solyndra paid it’s remaining employees huge bonuses after they went belly up, saying they had to do it to keep “valued” employees. Keeping “Valued employees” at a bankrupt green energy plant? For what? Obama’s reelection campaign? Or for another feeding frenzy at the taxpayer cash trough as soon as Obama and company can sneak it by the media? They are not producing a profitable product, yet stay in business. Only in big government la-la-land, where tax dollars are free for the taking for Obama-supporters does that happen. While paying out those bonuses (at taxpayer expense) at the Solyndra plant, those same “valued employees” were caught smashing millions of dollars in special materials and class used to make solar panels and throwing it into the dumpster. See those valued employees in action burning the taxpayer, complete with video here.
Bob Beauprez over at Townhall did the real legwork here, in showing just who the Abound investor Mr. Stryker is:
So, how did Abound convince the Obama Administration to approve a $400 million loan?  Just as Solyndra and other companies that received millions and billions for green projects were connected to campaign contributors and administration officials, one of the main investors in Abound – Pat Stryker – is a big Democrat financier.  The following is courtesy of Joel Gehrke and the Washington Examiner.  What Gehrke failed to mention is that billionaire Stryker is also a founding member of the “Gang of Four” who invested millions in what became known as the Colorado Model, a largely covert political strategy that reversed the political power in Colorado and became embraced by the Democrat Party.

“Pat Stryker, founder of Bohemian Companies (an Abound Solar investor, as the Sunlight Foundation first observed), donated $50,000 to support President Obama’s 2009 inauguration and bundled another $87,500 for the event, Stryker also gave $35,500 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012, according to FEC reports, and another $5000 to the Democratic White House Victory Fund in 2008.”

“In addition to supporting Democratic candidates, Stryker also provides significant financial backing to third-party groups that support Democratic candidates.”

“For instance, FEC reports show Stryker donated $145,000 in 2010 to America’s Families First Action Fund (AFFAF) and $75,000 to ‘Women Vote’ operation organized by the pro-choice group, Emily’s List. the Washington Post reported in October 2010 that AFFAF had spent almost $6 million during that cycle on behalf of Democratic candidates only. ‘Women Vote’ is a similarly partisan effort by Emily’s List to ‘turn out women voters for our pro-choice Democratic women candidates and every Democrat on the ticket.’

Are Americans really going to vote for four more years of these types of blatant big government graft and taxpayer abuse at the hand of Barack Obama and his appointed minions in the DOE ?

 

Politics Made Simple: Let Liberals Pay for All Abortion Pills

During the debate about Barack Obama’s recent big government attempts to mandate that religious organizations pay for free contraceptive and after-the-fact abortion pills, there has been very little discussion of the fact that these abortion pills are seen by many Americans as a way to commit legal murder by killing a developing fetus while it is still in the womb. Also of note is that when people do a browser search for “abortion pill” Planned Parenthood  is the very first “recommended by google” site to come up. No health professionals, no doctor’s groups, and no scientific studies are even in the top 10 search results for abortion pills. That is blatant internet media manipulation designed to nudge people’s perceptions of what is right or wrong in America today, and I for one find it a disgusting disservice to all Americans, especially young women thinking about having an abortion.

Here are a few of the young mind-maniputaling tidbits being spread nationwide by Planned Parenthood, many times by using your tax dollars: ( emphasis added at times)

What is the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is a medicine that ends an early pregnancy. In general, it can be used up to 63 days — 9 weeks — after the first day of a woman’s last period. Women who need an abortion and are more than 9 weeks pregnant can have an in-clinic abortion.

The name for “the abortion pill” is mifepristone. It was called RU-486 when it was being developed.

That Planned Parenthood definition of the abortion pill is the equivalent of saying that rat poison is a medicine to treat rats. It is that simple.

What happens during a “Medication” abortion?

It’s common for women to be nervous about having a medication abortion — or any other medical procedure. But many of us feel better if we know what to expect.

What they fail to tell young women are the lifelong feelings of  guilt and shame many women suffer with for the rest of their lives, all because the “experts” at Planned Parenthood steadfastly and irresponsibly refuse to tell this side of the story.

Under Step 3, the follow-up visit after taking the abortion pill:

You will need to follow up within two weeks. Follow-up is important to make sure your abortion is complete and that you are well. You will need an ultrasound or blood test.

In the unlikely event that you are still pregnant, your health care provider will discuss your options with you. It’s likely you will need to have an aspiration abortion if the medication abortion did not end the pregnancy.

So just what is the innocent-sounding aspiration abortion?  According to Web MD  it is also known more fittingly as a suction abortion or a vacuum abortion. The manual vacuum abortion is when they use a syringe to suck the fetus tissue out, while the machine vacuum method uses a machine which involves the use of a hollow tube (cannula) that is attached by tubing to a bottle and a pump, which provides a gentle vacuum. The cannula is passed into the uterus, the pump is turned on, and the tissue is gently removed from the uterus. Note that nowhere in the Web MD description of these types of abortions is the word “aspiration” as Planned Parenthood refers to it.

Planned Parenthood also tries to imply that they do not receive any tax dollars to promote their main agenda: abortion-promotion.  That is a blatant lie, as can be seen in the article titled, Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report: Got $487.4 million in Tax Money, Did 329,445 Abortions.

The Liberal-in-Chief, Barack Obama wants all Americans to pick up the tab for the sectors of American society’s irresponsibility and pay for abortion pills, against the main beliefs of a large sector of American society who view abortion as murder and a disservice to young, naive, pregnant women. So here is a suggestion: Since Liberal nanny-state worshipers want young women across America to have the abortion pills, let them pay for it. Take the millions of tax dollars being used to finance Planned Parenthood’s abortion-selling agenda away from them, and let the Liberal elitists in the media and elected public office donate their own cash for these abortion pills. We could even give proper credit to one of the main promoters of tax dollars being used for abortions in America today, Senator Barbara Boxer. We could name the new Liberal abortion-donation fund, the Barbara Boxer Buys Abortion Pills for Everyone, fund. Giving true credit where credit is due and all that.

Again, If it is such a great and noble cause, put your money where your Liberal rhetoric is and pony up a few million.  The fact is these Liberals are full of dishonest hot air when it comes to actually “helping people” with their own money. They only want to help people with other people’s hard-earned dollars, including the taxpayers purse, as proven by the above expose’ on just how many tax dollars went to Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills. The minute any elected official starts talking about de-funding the Liberal abortion mills of Planned Parenthood, Liberal mouthpieces like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer start screaming about women’s rights to proper health-care and “medicine.” More rat poison anyone?
