Jobs Bill Goes Down in Flames in Senate Vote

President Obama’s fabled American Jobs Act failed in a vote in the United States Senate last night, 50-49. While the AP states that “The Senate Republicans voted last night to ‘kill’ the jobs package,” Democratic Senators Ben Nelson and Jon tester both also voted against Obama’s jobs bill. They are both up for reelection in states Obama figures to lose in next year’s elections. With both Democratic Senators acknowledging that a vote for this fake jobs bill could very well get them fired next year due to the obvious fact that the voters do not approve of this bill, then why would the rest of the Democrats be voting against the wishes of the people once again? (as they did in the Obama-care vote) This is further proof that when we the people say no more fake Stimulus packages, no new taxes, and no more government intervention into our lives, we mean it! (and will vote accordingly) The GOP now seems to be “getting it” and yet the Democrats still do not seem capable of understanding just what message we were sending in the historic beating they took in the 2010 elections, and what it was all about.

Harry Reid-the-game-player even went so far as to pull another trick last night in trying to shove this jobs bill down Americans throats against the wishes of the majority of the citizens. He actually voted against Barack Obama’s jobs bill! After all of his ranting and raving up on the Senate floor in trying to rally the Democrats to pass the jobs bill, why in the world would Harry then turn around and vote against it? I,ll let the AP tell you why:

The $447 billion plan died on a 50-49 tally that garnered a majority of the 100-member Senate but fell well short of the 60 votes needed to keep the bill alive. The tally had been 51-48, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., switched his vote to “nay” so that he could force a future revote.

(emphasis mine)

Harry Reid just nuked the U.S. Senate in order to supposedly stop unnecessary debates in the Senate to be able to devote more time to deal with “all of the important business” that they need to do, and yet sets up another waste of time jobs bill vote by changing his own vote. Harry the hypocrite strikes again.

Harry isn’t giving up on ramming Obama’s fake jobs bill down American’s throats, and neither is Barack: “Tonight’s vote is by no means the end of this fight,” Obama said in a statement after the vote. “Because with so many Americans out of work and so many families struggling, we can’t take `no’ for an answer.” Once again, we the people say we will kick anyone out of office voting for this retread of the failed stimulus fraud, and Obama says “we won’t take no for an answer.” Barack also says that any Senator who votes no on this measure should have to look the voters in the eye and explain why they voted against it. Explaining why they honored the wishes of we the people and voted down your fake jobs bill isn’t difficult at all Mr. President, especially while I’m patting my Senators on the back for listening to the hundreds of calls we made demanding that they vote down your Stimulus 2.0. Jobs are needed for all Americans, not just your Union bed-pals and campaign donors. Now that is has been defeated, do you think our President will actually get off the Pass My Jobs Bill campaign trail and do the job he as elected to do in the future? Don’t count on it, as he has stated that he won’t take no for an answer. When we the people vote him out of our White House in 2012, maybe he will wish he had said “YES WE CAN: listen to the people, instead of asking his stage props at his way-too-numerous campaign tours to chant “Four more years.” We can’t take four more years of 9.1% unemployment, big government expansion and the massive push towards Socialism that has come with the hope and change fraud of 2008. We can’t.. and we won’t.

UPDATE: Senator Mike Lee explained to Greta Van Susteren, just why the Jobs Bill failed in the Senate.

Will the OWS Protesters Protest Obama's Newest Corporate Government Bank ?

The Wall Street protesters are demanding jobs, not more big bank bailouts, as signs across America have shown us last weekend.

  The Occupiers hate banks, they hate evil corporations and they hate the government manipulators in Congress. ( supposedly) I wonder how they feel about the creation of a brand new government bank created solely for the purpose of politicians stashing away billions of our tax dollars to use for Union payoffs and vote-buying to further empower themselves?  Surely these protesters will speak up against another big corporate government bank stealing tax dollars for their own self-interests, while non-politically connected folks go without jobs, right?  Well, it turns out that these protesters are made to look like simplistic hypocrites when we discover that they, and many of their sister protesters and allies are promoting the very creation of another evil bank, this one run by their government as nothing more than a giant slush fund for the current Liberal rulers in Congress and the White House. What is the name of this bank you ask? Who is creating this bank and how can they get away with it? Have these innocent grassroots protesters been duped ?  I can answer all of those questions in one simple but true statement: The creation of this new bank is hidden in Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act. It is called, The American Infrastructure Financing Authority or AIFA. From bondbuyer.com we see the following explanation:

“The jobs bill would create the American Infrastructure Financing Authority as a wholly owned government corporation that would “provide direct loans and loan guarantees to facilitate investment in economically viable infrastructure projects of regional or national significance,” according to administration officials.” ( emphasis mine)

As we previously discovered that Congress has shown the pattern of  illegally creating their own slush fund/loan sharking banks such as the FFB, it should be noted that nowhere in our Constitution is Congress given the authority to create any banks, or financing authorities. Keeping in mind that many of the Green Energy loans (think Solyndra) were given out by the above-mentioned illegal FFB as an underhanded way to avoid full inspection by Congress and avoid accountability to We the People,  it boggles the mind to see the Wall Street occupiers and sister groups promoting Obama’s fake jobs bill with a new evil banking corporation created right in it.  Low and behold, that proof can be found right here.  The Communist Party USA, The AFL-CIO, Barack Obama’s moveon.org all support Obama’s jobs bill and the Occupy Wall Street protests. In the jobs bill is the creation of an evil corporate bank which is created solely to pay off the biggest Transportation Union in the country, the AFL-CIO.  My what a coincidence!

The Occupiers would surely object to a President who wants to take billions of tax dollars to use as a political slush fund right? Has anyone yet to see any signs at the Occupy Park Benches Across America Union supported protests? How about the fact that the AFL-CIO big Union vote-buying machine is sleeping right next to them while also spending millions of Union dues dollars to promote Obama’s newest evil corporate bank? Will this new bank somehow translate into jobs for the supposed grassroots folks down at Wall Street, as Obama has them  apparently duped into believing? The fact that Obama already took some $836 billion tax dollars in the Stimulus fraud and yet we still see unemployment at 9.1% somehow seems to escape the Occupiers.  If not, they would have signs protesting the next half a billion dollars being stolen to pay back their protest-bed-pals at the AFL-CIO, while creating a new big corporate bank. The creation of the AIFA is a long-term planned theft of tax dollars to pay off Unions, as we see by the mandates for funding in it:

“The bank would be capitalized with a $10 billion congressional appropriation for its first two years. Loans would go to projects of  at least $100 million, or **$25 million** in rural areas. The loan or loan guarantee could finance no more than 50% of the project’s cost. The base interest rate on a direct loan would be at least the rate on Treasury debt with a similar maturity.” ( emphasis mine)

 

First we see that $10 billion tax dollars will be ‘loaned out” in first two years. What about in the future?  Is this a bottomless black money pit? Billions upon billions will continue to be shuffled into this new AIFA “bank” as we see from The Patriot Update:

In its first two years, AIFA would rake in $10 billion in congressional appropriations; $20 billion over the next seven years; and $50 billion per fiscal year after that. How would Obama ensure the loan review process is protected from special interest favor-trading and White House meddling? If the ongoing, half-billion-dollar stimulus-funded Solyndra solar company loan debacle is any indication, the answer is: not very well. (emphasis mine)

In case some of our readers are not familiar as to who exactly will “qualify” for all these new jobs that this “bank” will supposedly create, you need to read the new law created by the Obama administration that now mandates that every single federal construction contract over the above stated **$25 million tax dollars** MUST BE USE UNION LABOR.  Didn’t know that fact? Then read this. The  bottom line is that if the out of work Occupiers do not pay the Unions dues and become a member of  their AFL-CIO- OWS-bedpals , they are locked out of even a chance to get a job from Obama’s jobs bill!  How about it Occupiers?

Instead of chanting “Four more years!, maybe the Occupy protesters  should draw up some signs stating that they are against Obama’s jobs bill which creates the big evil corporate bank AIFA, which is loaded with graft and billions of dollars for their new pal,  Richard Trumka, the current head of the AFL-CIO.  Until we see that, the “Occupy movement”  is nothing more than a bunch of hypocritical nonsense that has been hijacked by the Obama2012 reelection campaign and his Union vote-buying pals. So, lets all head on up to our nation’s capitol and protest Obama’s jobs bill shall we? 

 

CPUSA–> Obama’s Jobs Bill–> OccupyWallStreet

   Communism, Socialism, OccupyWallStreet, and Barack Obama’s Jobs Bill all nestled together under one all-telling blanket. 

While the following excerpts may sound familiar to some, the underlying repercussions that come with them may very well  surprise most of our readers:

“A better and peaceful world is possible- a world where people and nature come before profits.”  That may sound rosy enough at the outset,  until we see what directly follows that statement:

“That’s Socialism. That’s our vision. We are The Communist Party USA. That statement is brought to you by the CPUSA’s current homepage. When indoctrinating America’s youth, Communists always start out with championing Socialism. The Socialist Workers Party was/is just another stealth front group for Communist indoctrination through the use of  the term “workers” also. The infamous National Socialist  German Workers Party was widely known as the NAZI Party, which hid behind  title, The German Workers Party prior to a name change in 1920. The term NAZI is German and stems from Nationalsozialist.  That little history lesson, while many folks may view it as irrevelant towards today’s American Politics, should never be forgotten, as history truly does have a way of repeating itself over and over. What is also troubling is the fact that we even have a Communist party in America today.

Now for some more tidbits from the CPUSA homepage we see the following link to an article from People’s World  titled: America’s kids tell their stories from their Wall Street Camp.

While the article goes on to tell stories of the cute “kids” at the protests, it also carries a very heavy undercurrent of anti-capitalistic indoctrination in it. Take this paragraph for instance:

Esmeralda, Youth Council President of the Mid Manhattan NAACP, and two friends are camping out together. Esmeralda, 17, says she’s had “lots of internships, but never a real job.” Her high school is just across the street from Zuccotti Park and she’s been joining her friends Chilligan, 19, and Nicole, 20 at the park every day after class.

Maybe a little less time spent as a 17-yr old Youth President of the NAACP and a little more time applying herself at school would lead to a decent job and/or qualify her for college one day in the future. 17 years old and already an anti-capitalist community organizer complaining she doesn’t have  a job. What she really means that everyone has the right to a $20.00 an hour job, regardless of employment as seen here. This is what we see more and more of every day in America, thanks to the indoctrination of our youth in the classrooms. They get out into the real world only to discover that they do not have a basic set of skills to actually put towards working for a living. we see this pattern in virtually all of the “stories about the kids at Wall Street Camp” in that article. Socialists are experts at playing the victim card while actually creating more victims by indoctrinating them into hating capitalism and worshiping the nanny state. That’s Socialism.

Also found on today’s CPUSA homepage is also this unmitigated lie being told to the uninformed masses of American youth: “Socialism will meet the needs of the great majority of our people and lay the basis for solving our social, economic and environmental problems.”  Did you catch that statement, all you kids at the Wall Street camps?  Put on your Mao and Che shirts, denounce capitalism, become a Socialist puppet, and you are well on your way to the Communist Utopia where poof!, all our problems will auto-magically disappear! What the Communist propagandists fail to tell you is that Communism leads to bread lines and wide-spread poverty 100% of the time. ( Unless you are enslaved to the government dictatorship that feeds and clothes you in exchange for serving  the state, in which case they shall deem you important enough to keep alive until you outlive your usefulness, or just get too old to work)  The lies being told about supposedly being a slave to evil capitalism somehow forget to inform people of the benefits of capitalism, such as the freedom to live and work where you choose, the right towards prosperity through hard work and opportunity, and the right to worship as you choose. You get none of that under a Communist dictatorship, period. Just speaking out against government abuses of the people can get you imprisoned for life, or even killed in all Communist countries. Beware of the Socialism pimps, as they are always working towards creating a Communist state in the end. History shows that to be an undeniable fact, unless your  unionized history teacher is a Socialist Workers Party USA member wearing a Che T-shirt in class. In that case you need to go straight home and inform your parents about what is going on, and demand that the situation be addressed immediately. American schools are for teaching our children true American and world history, and about the proven American exceptionalism that has made this the greatest, freest nation on earth for over 200 years. Leave the Socialist/Communist indoctrination out of our schools please.

Last but certainly not least, we see another revelation on the CPUSA’s homepage that should open the eyes of all Americans today:

Organizing for Jobs,Jobs,Jobs.  “The Great Recession of 2008 is looking more like the Great Depression of the 1930s. The economic crisis of U.S. (and world) capitalism is entering its fourth year.” (emphasis mine) next up they make the pitch that the only way to improve our economy is for the government to somehow create jobs. (Nanny-state enslavement 101 kids) ** Note: Nowhere in the United States Constitution is it stated that the government has the power to interfere in the private sector free market system or “create jobs” with taxpayer dollars. Funny thing about Communists, Marxists and Socialists: they all believe in radical change/overthrow of governments to mold society to fit their Utopian ideology. That means ignoring our constitution or eventually abolishing it all together eventually. President Obama wants another half a billion tax payer dollars to supposedly create jobs. The CPUSA wants you to know that they support his plan.

“Two weeks ago President Obama introduced the American Jobs Act to a joint session of Congress. It is sure to meet stiff resistance from the Republicans in Congress. A massive outcry of millions of American people insisting on the Act’s passage is necessary.” (emphasis mine)

In that last statement we see the communist Party USA parroting the exact same thing Barack Obama has been telling people across the nation in dozens of speeches. Coincidence? Not hardly. CPUSA takes it one step further in mentioning other Obama political-operative groups, such as the AFL-CIO and moveon.org:

“America Wants to Work (AFL-CIO) in alliance with many community and activist organizations including Moveon.org are organizing a week of actions Oct. 10-16 demanding jobs. Thousands of grassroots actions, marches, vigils, delegations and speak-outs are being planned in cities and neighborhoods across the country.”

Isn’t there already a group of wanna-be Socialists posing as a grassroots movement, protesting against capitalism and Wall Street bankers? Oh yes that would be the astro-turfing Occupy Wall Street protesters we see today. Further proof of the indoctrination of our youth by Union ( Socialist Workers party) teacherscanalso be found in this announcement at CPUSA: “A national National Teach-in called Students and Youth Rising for Jobs and Economic Justice will take place Oct. 12.” Isn’t that a hell of a coincidence there?

Communist Party USA —>  Occupy Wall Street —-> AFL-CIO —> Barack Obama’s very own moveon.org, all working together for the common cause of getting out and organizing for the passage of Obama’s jobs bill while protesting evil capitalism !   What a lovely team.   2012 just can’t get here soon enough! 

 

Special update just for the annonynous pest trying to propagandize our comment section here at CDN:  Since DAY1  in New York look who has been behind the OWS protests! Thank you Andrew Breitbart.   Meet the career anarchist posing as a New-Yorker who is actually from Texas.

 

 

The American Jobs Act and The Games Harry Plays

  President Obama wants his jobs bill passed. Does everyone understand that now?  For those of you living in a cave in Iraq without wi-fi, there is a supposed jobs bill here in America, and President Obama wants it passed right now, today, no questions asked! Obama wants you to know that if Congress does not pass his jobs bill, he will be on TV, on a bus tour across America and in the news every single day until… the 2012 elections continuing his very unpresidential  "Pass My Jobs Bill" temper tantrum. That is what he promised/threatened to do in his 112 minute speech to the nation yesterday. That, and blame Republicans again. Is the President of the United States so out of touch with the voting public that he thinks this type of childish tantrum on national TV will magically persuade the 54% of people who now disapprove of Barack Obama to vote for "four more years?"  

 

  The first hurdle towards passing Obama’s jobs bill reared it’s ugly head in the Unites States Senate on Wednesday. This was seen in the example of an epic battle between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (L-D) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R).  Harry did not have the votes needed to pass the jobs bill due to bi-partisan opposition and Mitch wanted a vote on it right then and there on Weds. In this battle of Senate titans, which was televised in it’s entirety on Cspan, ( yes we watch Cspan now and then) we saw Harry capitulate, grovel and complain, while yet not really explaining why he refused to give Obama his much-demanded vote on the jobs bill. Mitch held his ground and said " Let’s give the President the vote he wants here today." Back and forth, over and over, both aging fighters were hitting each other with the all-to-common politically correct verbal feather punches and counter-hugs, punches. Neither man would back down and this battle looked to end in a stalemate by Weds. evening. On Thursday, President Obama went on another 112 minute rant to the nation stating that they had better pass his jobs bill or the people would "run them out of town." ( referring to Republicans only , because Democrats had nothing to do with the 6 trillion dollars of debt they have slapped onto the backs of our children, according to Obama) By this time the nation was being exposed to Harry’s games in the Senate by citizen journalists, political activists, and grassroots Tea Party groups across America. Immense pressure was being put on poor old Harry Reid, and he seemed to crack near the end of Obama’s speech, as Fox news announced that Harry Reid would indeed allow the Senate to hold a vote on Obama’s jobs bill later on that day. ( Thursday)  Apparently, this was just another of Harry Reid’s  irresponsible games being played once again, because as of right now, it looks like the vote was not held. We all know how  by now Harry’s past games have been played. Remember when he was caught bribing Senators Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) during the health-care debate? That resulted in what are known as the Corn-husker kick-back and the new Louisiana Purchase in which your own tax dollars were used to buy their votes for Obama-care. Harry Reid has been playing these types of games for decades up there in the U.S. Senate. (at taxpayers expense) When harry announced that they would vote on the jobs bill yesterday, he must have had some more kick-back schemes lined up, in which he thought he could buy the votes needed to pass the jobs bill. The vote did not happen last night as had been announced. While the reasons for it  not happening are not yet clear, it now looks like Harry Reid is losing at his own game.

    Why is there bi-partisan opposition to Obama’s jobs bill ?  

Maybe it is the fact that the jobs bill really isn’t a jobs bill after all, upon closer inspection? What if it is proven that Barack Obama is fighting not for jobs for ordinary citizens, but is, in fact simply begging for another half a trillion taxpayer dollars to pay back his vote-buying Union bed-pals, assorted crony-capitalists such as G.E., and  strengthen his campaign coffers just like he did with the 826-billion-dollar-taxpayer-fraud now know as the fake stimulus package ?  That debacle did not stop us from  the current 9.1% unemployment rate we have which is crushing the middle class of America. The bullet points in Obama’s latest Stimulus Package-light  run right along with the same lines as the lies that were told during the last stimulus package propaganda tour, except that this time we are being promised that. "The U/E rate will drop a couple of points," instead of the fallacy of 8% that Obama told us the last time we saw this scheme to defraud the American taxpayer. When researching The American Jobs Act in a browser, the first 15-20 pages are all from teachers unions and assorted Obama political operatives that are nothing more than parroting Obama’s misleading talking points verbatim. As Obama’s lifelong pal, Weather-underground terrorist and Chi-town community organizer Bill Ayer’s always says, " Tell a lie long enough, and the uninformed masses will eventually believe it." How many times have we seen Barack Obama on TV, on the radio, in the faux news fluff pieces, and flying around the country in perpetual campaign mode demanding that Congress pass his jobs bill now and put " Americans back to work" recently? .Too many to count. Tell the lies loud enough and long enough and the sheep will eventually believe it. That is why Barack Obama is spending millions of taxpayer dollars and wasting valuable time demanding his jobs bill be passed, time that could be better spent governing and leading this country, instead of  preaching about this Stimulus-light. 

If Obama”s jobs bill was designed to actually help Americans get back to work, then the bill would simply sell itself to Congress.  That did not happen.

In an article from nationalreview.com, we see just why Obama’s jobs bill seems to be stuck in the mud in Congress and doomed to sink:

Transportation funding: The bill sets aside $50 billion for transportation projects, mostly in the form of grants and guaranteed loans, including $27 billion for “immediate transportation infrastructure investments” on highway and rail projects, including:

  • $4 billion in grants for “high-speed rail projects,” at least 85 percent of which must be spent on “the development of entire segments or phases of intercity or high-speed rail corridors.”

  • $2 billion (on top of that $4 billion) for Amtrak.

  • $2 billion for “airport improvement.”

  • $105 million for “the Puerto Rico highway program.”

  The Transportation department, run by Ray LaHood has seen huge increases in taxpayer funding since Obama took office, yet we still stare 9.1% long-term unemployment in the face today. Remember the "shovel-ready jobs" promise during the original stimulus rip-off ? A huge part of as to why all of the transportation/infrastructure spending of Stimulus 1 failed was because that  Unions now get all federal construction contracts over $25 million dollars. No bids are allowed by private companies unless they are Unionized, no getting the best price for the taxpayer-funded projects, thus shutting out small companies that are not politically connected and Unionized. Federal transportation spending under Barack Obama has already increased by a whopping 549% !    In 2008 we spent $10.7B and in the last two years under Obama we have spent..$58.7 billion dollars in transportation and infrastructure funding, yet  we have seen very little improvement in our infrastructure, as Obama himself stated in his last speech. Why is that? If we add the 50 billion dollar increase in transportation spending that is asked for in the jobs bill, transportation spending will have increased by 1016% since 2008 levels. No that is not a typo, it is actually a 1016% increase in transportation spending. If we cut Obama’s Union bed-pals out of the picture and actually put these contracts up for fair bids, we just might see some actual improvement, instead of just a bunch of government signs stating how great the stimulus scheme was doing for us all.

Just like when Congress illegally created the FFB Congressional loan sharking bank for themselves back in 1973, Obama’s jobs bill also creates another "bank." 

Infrastructure bank: The AJA establishes the “American Infrastructure Financing Authority” (a.k.a. the infrastructure bank) as a “wholly owned government corporation.” The purpose of this new “government corporation,” is according to the bill, “to facilitate investment in, and long-term financing of, economically viable infrastructure projects of regional or national significance.

Who decides which projects are “economically viable” and “of regional or national significance”? A board of unelected bureaucrats, that’s who. AIFA’s board of directors will consist of 7 members, each appointed by the president, “not more than 4 of which” can be from the same political party. They will preside over an annual fund of $10 billion that is set to grow to $20 billion after two years, before settling at $50 billion (annually) after 10 years. By 2014, AIFA’s “administrative costs” alone will reach up to $50 million per year. A few other notable provisions of the infrastructure bank:

It Creates a “Center for Excellence to provide technical assistance to public sector borrowers.”Contains a provision prioritizing “geographic diversity” in the selection of projects for funding. Nothing to see there folks, just move along.

Additionally, there is billions of dollars in Green Energy Solyndra-style fraud and taxpayer abuse embedded into the jobs bill that is sure to enrage many Americans upon discovery. We also have President Obama once again saying this jobs is completely paid for and will not increase our national debt. What the people need to be told is the fact that this fake jobs bill which is really just another stimulus fraud, will in fact be paid for by massive tax increases. Add  to that the so-called millionaires surtax of an additional 5.6% that was slipped into the Senate jobs bill yesterday, on Obama’s orders and we see the fact that Obama is indeed breaking numerous additional stated promises about "not raising taxes during the current recession." Another aspect of this farce of a jobs bill comes out into the sunlight when we research The American Jobs Act on the internet. As stated above the first 15-20 pages are mainly from teachers unions saying how wonderful it is that Barack will be putting them "back to work" with his jobs bill. In keeping things real, I just went down to do a simple poll at the local bus stop.There were 18 kids there this morning waiting for the school bus, ranging from 10 yrs old to 18. I asked a simple question: "Have any of you been sitting in a classroom where there was no teacher present at any point during this school year ? " Of course that has never happened they all stated. "How could we be out here going to school if there were no teachers in class? ",  a 10 year old asked me. My point exactly. So much for "Putting the valuable teachers back to work with his jobs bill" propaganda Obama spewed yesterday. When the teacher’s Unions explode the number of teachers to an unmanageable level, the first to go during common sense budget cuts are the ones whom are essentially worthless or were not needed to begin with. That is just a plain hard fact of life that even a 10 year old can understand.

Senate Majority obstructionist and denier of reality, Harry Reid  is simply playing a game he cannot win when it comes to passing Obama’s fake jobs bill. Realistic Senate Democrats  up for reelection in 2012, will note vote for this bill simply because they couldn’t ram it though quickly enough, as was Barack Obama’s plan.The people are wise to this Stimulus-light  jobs bill fraud, and are getting wiser by the minute, much to Harry’s dismay. The more we look into this jobs bill, the more we see that it is not an actual jobs bill that was designed to help the working class people of America. House Speaker Boehner is very aware of that fact, and poses yet another problem for Harry Reid in getting Obama’s jobs bill passed. Good luck Harry. 2012 just can’t get here fast enough. 

 UPDATE:  This just in:  Reid triggers ‘nuclear option’ to change Senate rules, end repeat filibusters.  As I stated earlier in this article, Harry Reid has been playing the nasty game of partisan, totalarianist  politics for a long time now. Hold your ground Mr. McConnell.

    

 

Mayor Bloomberg's Latest Bombshells Land on Obama and Buffet Bedpals

The mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg who can not seem to stay out of the media circus for even one short weekend lately, as was witnessed by his latest episode of  TV stardom-fueled narcissism on NBC’s  Meet The Press this past weekend. Bloomberg, who himself is listed to as one of the evil rich people Barack Obama and Warren Buffett are saying need to be taxed more with an estimated worth of some $19 billion dollars, pulled no punches in an interview with DavidGregory on Sunday. While Bloomberg is considered by most people to be a leftward leaning Liberal Independent nowadays, he came out swinging at the Obama-Buffett tax the rich more scheme, that is deeply rooted  in Obama’s fake American Jobs Act.

First, Bloomberg jumped right on the neck of fellow billionaire Warren Buffet, for whom Obama recently named The Buffett Rule  after.  “The Buffett thing is just theatrics. If Warren Buffett made his money from ordinary income rather than capital gains, his tax rate would be a lot higher than his secretary’s. And, in fact, a very small percentage of people in this country pay a big chunk on their taxes.”

Translation of the above statement: ” Keep your hands off of my billions, Buffet and get an honest job to make your own money for once,  instead of dodging paying your own fair share by claiming it all under the lower-taxed capital gains loophole rates, if you really want to pay your fair share.”

Mayor Bloomberg also backhands President Obama with his view of just what he thinks of  the Obama-Buffett tax the rich scheme, when he stated that he wasn’t impressed with Obama’s class warfare tactics, including Buffett’s supposedly begging to be taxed more rhetoric.  We have to wonder if the mayor will be getting a call from the Chicago-Bully-Pulpit posing as the White House administration today about that statement.

Mayor Bloomberg even took it a step further in this interview on Meet The Press,  when he mentioned his support for a supposed third party candidate in 2012, and tossed out the name Americans Elect 2012.  The goal of Americans Elect is to “nominate a presidential ticket that answers directly to voters, not the political system.” “But if somebody wants to run, you know, there’s this organization that’s going to be able to get you on the ballot in all 50 states,” Bloomberg said, adding “That’s good for democracy.”

Mayor Bloomberg also made an attempt to explain Barack Obama’s class warfare in the interview when he said, “You can’t define what’s middle class, what is wealthy, what is poor,” Bloomberg said. “Every time you have a jump, people play games to get on one side or another. And I think it’s not fair to say that wealthy people don’t pay their fair share. They pay a much higher percentage of their income. They have a higher rate than people who make less.”

 

While it is very refreshing to see Mayor Bloomberg taking on the Liberal Establishment’s blatant class warfare that is critical to Obama’s reelection campaign, we also have to wonder just what Obama and company will counter-attack with in the coming days, and whether or not we will see a quieter, less vocal Mayor Bloomberg after the Chicago political machine gets winds of this interview and expresses their displeasure with the Mayor’s exposing Obama’s class warfare rhetoric that they deny even exists.   Mayor Bloomberg is also a media-mogul who  would be a dangerous person to try to silence with Chicago-style thuggery, and also just happens to represent the massive voting block known as New York City.  This could certainly get very interesting in the very near future.

 

Who Pays What in Taxes: The Truth Comes Out at CDN

The President wants to raise taxes in America through his phony American Jobs Act and the unconstitutional super debt committee fallacy. Is President Obama trying to slam us into a double-dip recession? Now he wants to impose what he cutely calls The Buffet Rule  to tax Americans even further, because as Warren Buffet says, the rich pay less than in taxes than the poor middle class. Is that statement true?  Apparently it is a complete fabrication/fallacy as a recent AP fact Check article shows us:

AP Fact Checks Obama: Are the Rich Really Taxed Less Than Secretaries?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he wants to make sure millionaires are taxed at higher rates than their secretaries. The data say they already are….

This year, households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes, including income taxes, payroll taxes and other taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank.

Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay an average of 15 percent  of their income in federal taxes.Lower-income households will pay less. For example, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will pay an average of 12.5 percent of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7 percent.

The latest IRS figures are a few years older — and limited to federal income taxes — but show much the same thing. In 2009, taxpayers who made $1 million or more paid on average 24.4 percent of their income in federal income taxes, according to the IRS.

Those making $100,000 to $125,000 paid on average 9.9 percent in federal income taxes. Those making $50,000 to $60,000 paid an average of 6.3 percent. (emphasis mine)

 

As we see here President Obama is dead wrong when he quotes the outright lie being told by Warren Buffet about who pays what in taxes in America today. NOTE:  Buffet claims his income as capital gains and therefore skirts the issue of paying his fair share also. (That is a great example of the word trickery used in mind manipulation to skew the facts in this situation.)  But in looking at the AP fact Check numbers above, we see an even bigger injustice exposed in this propaganda here:  Taxes on the rich have already increased since 2009 when Barack Hussein Obama took office. while taxes on the lowest earners have decreased:

2011- If you make more than 1 million  your tax rate is now an effective 29.1%,  [ UP 4.7% ]   from 24.4% in 2009, Obama’s first year in office.

2011- Make 50 – 75k and your effective tax rate is now 15%,  [ UP a whopping 8.7% ] from the 2009 tax rate of  50 – 60k at 6.3% .

2011- Those making between 20 – 30 k will pay 5.7%,  or [23.4% less than the million-dollar earners.]

 

 Shame on you President Obama and Mr. Buffet. Barack Obama has already raised taxes across the board for the rich, and also raised them on the middle class folks by a whopping 8.7%  in your short time in office. Now you want more tax increases?  When will it stop?

 In 2012, when we vote for common sense conservative principles to stop this economy-crushing Liberal nonsense !

 

Is President Obama Pushing Us Into a Double Dip Recession? History Says YES

President Obama’s approval ratings among American voters have been dropping to historic lows as he heads into the third year of his first, and only term, as President of The United States. Electoral history backs up that last statement, in the fact that no incumbent President has ever been reelected with our current stubbornly high unemployment rate hovering over 9%. Throw in the fact that the dollar is weak, gasoline is still about double what it was when he took office, and the fact that many economists point to the total unemployment as to being more like 17%, not the 9% that the new Liberal math is using to get it at that level, and we end up with 63% of Americans  saying they do not like the direction the country is going under Barack Obama. That points to Obama as being what is simply know as a “One and done President.”

 Does Barack Obama know he is a one and done president?  He must know how disgusted most of America is  in the hope and change slogan that has now become simply,  no hope and change for the worse, when we see those sharply tanking approval ratings. Since Obama knows he will be defeated in 2012, relegated to the dustbin of being known as the worst President in modern American history, many folks believe he is setting up the next Republican President administration to fail by damaging our economy immensely. History also shows this to be a pattern of past Presidents. If you can create an atmosphere of long-term instability in our economy, it could lead Americans to eventually voting for Hope and Change 2.0.  in 2016,  just like they did in 2006 without any clear definition of just what kind of trans-formative change  candidate Obama was  talking about.

Barack Obama and his Liberal Party USA group of advisers, czars and high-powered appointees have been shown to try to replicate the failed Socialistic policies of past administrations of the lefto-sphere numerous times since Obama was elected. They have also used the gimmickry and manipulation of the masses techniques of past Presidents Carter, Wilson, Hoover, FDR, and Clinton often, ( while ignoring Truman’s economy recovery facts)  in trying to make their case for their Liberal wealth redistribution to buy votes campaigns.  Jimmy Carter, whom is widely known as the worst POTUS in modern history, along with Bill Clinton who is infamous for disgracing our White House with his Monica Lewinski down-under policies, are both still heavily involved in pimping the Barack Obama tax hike agenda of today. Do these Liberal elitists ever retire?  It says a lot about the current administration in their willingness to ignore Carter and Clinton’s incompetence and perversions, while trying to prop them up as respected people that Americans should listen to today.

The  bottom line is that, true to their Liberal ideology, Barack Obama and company are trying to tax us into a double-dip recession. History proves it, and the current stagnant economy due to the failed policies of the past 3 years, coupled with the numerous stealth tax increases hidden in the Obama agenda such as those being found in Obama-care, will prove deadly to our economy in the near future. Tax increases and massive over-regulation are piling up in all sectors of our economy, with many of them being back-loaded until…. 2013, right after Obama is kicked out of office. Coincidence? Not likely. Fake Democrats have a well-documented history of implementing stealth policies in able to regain power in future elections by crippling the economy through failed Keynesian economic policies. Then, they sit back and start screaming that it is all the conservative policies that hurt working Americans and everyone should get out and vote for Democrats. This is the proven cycle of the two-party political system, and people fall for it time and time again while ignoring the history of American economics.

         Today, on my local news I saw that Bill Clinton is telling Americans and Congress to pass Obama’s current massive tax hikes plan(s) RIGHT AWAY. The doomed-to-fail American Jobs Act, the newly announced Buffet Rule, and the hidden agenda of letting the Bush tax cuts expire are all in fact, tax hikes on every man, woman and child in America. ( Except for most of the Liberal base though, as they, like Buffett and Obama-bedpal G. E. , very rarely actually pay taxes)  That sent red flags dancing across my vision immediately. Bill Clinton’s fallacy about just what happened when he was President has been very well-exposed as to containing a very heavy dose of leftist propaganda in saying our economy skyrocketed during the Clinton years simply because he raised taxes on the rich. To be perfectly clear, history points to raising taxes as prohibitive to growing our economy time and time again. The current Liberal administration seems very good at using past history to dig out the trickery and manipulation tactics that have been used before to fool the American public into going along with tax increases that, in fact, will lead us into a double-dip recession. Is Barack Obama pushing us into a double dip recession on purpose? History says he is doing  just that, when we look at how past tax hikes have resulted in severe downturns in our economy throughout our presidential history.

In an article from The Heritage Foundation titled, Hoover, FDR and Clinton Tax Increases: A Brief Historical Lesson, we see indisputable facts that prove to us that raising taxes during a recession only leads us into a double-dip recession or even a depression. These historic examples  also show us to be the exact same tactics that the Obama administration is now using  as we head in  2012 and the Presidential elections.

                          Lets start with President Herbert Hoover back in the troubled economic times of  the early 1930’s.:

” After the 1929 stock market crash, the Smoot-Hawley tariff of 1930 raised import prices and more importantly threw a bucket of cold water on global trade flows, helping send the economy into deep depression. The economy had very little chance to recover. Along with gross and ongoing monetary policy mismanagement, President Hoover raised taxes in 1932. The consequences were devastating. As Alan Reynolds points out: ‘ President Herbert Hoover asked for a temporary tax increase…in June 1932, raising the top income tax rate from 25% to 63% and quadrupling the lowest tax rate from 1.1% to 4%. That didn’t help confidence or the Treasury. Revenue from the individual income tax dropped from $834 million in 1931 to $427 million in 1932 and $353 million in 1933′ ”  ( emphasis mine)

Note the highlighted lines there. Those were some whopping tax increases, and if Barack Obama and the Liberals in Congress get their way we will see the exact same thing when we look at the big picture and actually add all of the Obama tax increases already on the books to the new ones he is proposing today. Hoover’s huge tax increases also point us towards  the failed New Deal  Keynesian-style spending  that is always at the root of Progressive ( posing as democratic) policy. It led directly to a double-dip recession that really hurt the very working class people Democrats at the time purported to represent as we see here:

This caused a “double-dip” recession, sky-rocketing the unemployment rate to well above 20 percent. After 1933, the economy showed glimmers of recovery: unemployment dropped from near 25 percent in 1934 to under 15 percent in 1937, and economic activity was picking up. Contrary to Keynesian conventional wisdom, however, the recovery didn’t come as a result of New Deal spending. Christina Romer, former chief economic advisor to President Obama, makes clear: “Fiscal policy played a relatively small role in stimulating recovery in the United States.” Rather, the initial recovery happened largely because of monetary expansion, the “money supply increased nearly 42 percent between 1933 and 1937,” according to Ms. Romer. ( the monetary expansion link there gives us a very detailed look at the Great Depression and it’s causes)

          Five years later FDR repeated the same mistake as Hoover, as we see here

 

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt made the same crucial mistake President Hoover made 5 years earlier, so the recovery didn’t last. FDR raised taxes sharply in 1937 in an attempt to balance the budget. Once tax increases took effect, the economy collapsed into another recession – the second stage of the double-dip which lasted into WWII. ( emphasis mine)

 

 

       President Harry S. Truman, whom we all know was a huge history buff and an avid reader, learned just how dangerous Keynesian economic policies had been while he was serving as FDR”s Vice President , and as President in 1945 directed a true economic recovery through conservative, pro-growth principles:

As Burt Fulsom writes:

Congress reduced taxes. Income tax rates were cut across the board. FDR’s top marginal rate, 94% on all income over $200,000, was cut to 86.45%. The lowest rate was cut to 19% from 23%, and with a change in the amount of income exempt from taxation an estimated 12 million Americans were eliminated from the tax rolls entirely.

Corporate tax rates were trimmed and FDR’s “excess profits” tax was repealed, which meant that top marginal corporate tax rates effectively went to 38% from 90% after 1945….By the late 1940s, a revived economy was generating more annual federal revenue than the U.S. had received during the war years, when tax rates were higher. Price controls from the war were also eliminated by the end of 1946. The U.S. began running budget surpluses. ( emphasis mine)

How many of our readers can even imagine what a tax rate of 90%, as highlighted above, would do to this country ? Could that happen again? History already shows us that it will, if we do not address the current economic cliff we are standing on the edge of, and if we do not reinstate the free market principles that lead to overall  economic growth and create a stable economic climate . That simply means less taxation through corporate tax rate deductions and a repeal of the overbearing, expensive regulations that stifle economic growth.  The more companies and businesses pay in taxes, the less money there is for expansion and new job creation. It doesn’t take a Harvard trained elitist or a career politician to understand these facts. To the contrary, all it takes is a look at the history of economics above, with an eye on just what policies were good for America and which ones were proven to lead to double-dip recessions. It is historical fact.

             Last but certainly least, President Clinton’s policy record shows us both how misleading Liberals are when they say he lead us into the most prosperous economy in U.S. history, and their fallacy of whether or not he raised taxes to do it:

The disastrous mistakes from Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt underscore the importance that Washington not raise taxes in a weak economy. But that doesn’t stop the Left from advancing the notion. They point to Clinton’s record as proof. After all, Congress pushed through a big tax increase under President Clinton, and the economy boomed, right?  ( emphasis mine)

That much-overstated Liberal propaganda, when discussing the history of U.S. economic policy with regard to the Liberal tax-the- rich schemes, is in fact just that, mainly mind-manipulating propaganda put out by the ever- economically- illiterate Socialists posing as working-class champion Democrats as we see here:

Heritage senior fellow JD Foster adds:

The first period, from 1993 to 1996, began with a significant tax increase as the economy was accelerating out of recession. The second period, from 1997 to 2000, began with a modest tax cut as the economy should have settled into a normal growth period. The economy was decidedly stronger following the tax cut than it was following the tax increase. ( emphasis mine)

So there we have it, from Presidents Hoover, to FDR, to Truman, and finally to the myth of President Bill Clinton’s much-stated tax increases having ‘supposedly’ led to economic prosperity and job creation, we see that U.S. economic history shows us that raising taxes , especially during the current Obama-recession, will lead us straight into a double-sip recession. A double-dip recession, and possible  great depression are on the horizon for America due to Barack Obama’s current numerous tax increases, ( some obvious and many hidden) and  his big government-over- regulation-laden agenda. Obama knows he is a one and done President, and is doing everything he can to set up the next administration to fail by pushing for massive tax hikes during the current recession, while all the time blaming it on Republicans.  History tells us that this is, in fact, Barack Obama’s current agenda. Let’s all work together to avoid a double-dip recession that will hurt all Americans, and defeat Barack Obama in 2012.

 

 

Barack Obama Hearts "The Buffett Rule" to Raise Taxes

In a move that shows how desperate the Obama clan is to retain power in the 2012 elections, Obama has announced what he refers to as, “The Buffett Rule” where he proposes that the rich pay their fair share of taxes, as in when Warren Buffett told the nation that rich people like him would be willing to pay more taxes.. The ever-present cry to tax the rich more has been a Liberal Progressive motto since the days of President Wilson when communism involving the central governmental takeover of the free enterprise system was actually outlawed in the United States of America. “We the people” does not mean we the government, as it is stated in the U.S. constitution. A White House official confirmed the president will unveil the plan Monday at the White House as part of a broad proposal with recommendations aimed at deficit reduction. ( through Marxist wealth redistributive policies = higher taxes for all )

To the common working folks struggling to feed their families and pay their bills during the current progressive recession, the Tax the Rich soundbite always carries with it a certain amount of appeal, until they actually discover the fact that taxing businesses more leads to increases in the prices of the everyday things that the working man has to pay for just to survive. Small businesses in America making over 200 grand are also now considered to be rich according to today’s progressive administration. There will be a lot of hope and change voters getting a huge reality check in the very near future when they see their paychecks buying less and less due to big government expansion of power at the expense of the free enterprise system. History has proven this time and time again.

The Buffett Rule proves to be nothing more than the ultimate case of hypocritical tax dodgers becoming Obama spokesmen telling working Americans to pay more taxes, as in Billionaire tax dodging hypocrite Mr. Warren Buffett, who is currently involved in an almost a decade-long battle to……NOT PAY HIS FAIR SHARE of TAXES. That’s right, Warren Buffett is not up to date in paying his fair share of taxes, but this hypocrite can join Barack Obama in telling everyone else to pay more taxes. The Blaze came out with the following all inclusive headline: Obama Supporter Warren Buffett’s Co. Hasn’t Paid Some Taxes Since 2002 Be advised, when we see Barack Obama calling for “The Buffett Rule” you can bet he has already given the order for the IRS to settle with Buffett on his Income Tax evasions cases since 2002 right away to avoid folks like us here at CDN pointing out these facts. The above-linked The Blaze article references the New York Post piece that should really get your blood boiling:

The New York Post explains:

That’s right: As Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson notes, the company openly admits that it owes back taxes since as long ago as 2002.

“We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) for the 2002 through 2004 tax years … within the next 12 months,” the firm’s annual report says.

It also cites outstanding tax issues for 2005 through 2009

Mr. Buffett proves to be the ultimate in hyperbole-hypocrites here, when he tells Americans that they should pay more in taxes, while he himself has spent millions of dollars in tax litigation to avoid paying his fair share of taxes. Amazing isn’t it? Progressives have a very long history of saying one thing in public, while actually doing the opposite in private. The New York Post summed up this blatant pattern of progressive propagandist hypocrisy:

Obvious question: If Buffett really thinks he and his “mega-rich friends” should pay higher taxes, why doesn’t his firm fork over what it already owes under current rates?

Likely answer: He cares more about shilling for President Obama — who’s practically made socking “millionaires and billionaires” his re-election theme song — than about kicking in more himself.

While Obama recently drew up a doomed-to-fail stimulus 3.0 that he likes to call The American Jobs Act, “The Buffett Rule” tax increases will be in addition to the tax hikes that will hit Americans via the stealth tax hikes inherent in Obama-care,through The Jobs Act, and through the so-called super debt committee grand bargain. Big government loves bigger government in which they have the power to tax the hell out of the American people through hypocritical propagandists such as Warren Buffett and the Obama administration using the media to manipulate the uninformed masses.. That method of operation is at the root of the failed radical Marxist/Socialist policies that will lead to widespread poverty and the total loss of American freedom and liberty through the collapse of the free enterprise system.

Instead of “The Buffett Rule” we the people should be demanding “The Buffett Law” where felony income tax evasion demands prison time and huge fines. Maybe that would shut Mr. Buffett up once and for all. At least it would give him his wish, and make him pay his fair share of taxes !

What a Week in Politics: 9/17/2011

  Here at CDN we try to give our readers insightful, informative and sometimes humorous articles generally written from a conservative point of view,( and sometimes Libertarian) thus we are known as Conservative Daily News. While very detailed articles are a must for most political junkies, citizen activists and all around working folks concerned about the direction of America today under the current  Liberal administration, sometimes folks just do not have the time to devote hours or even days deciphering a whole week’s worth of political information in say, their only day off  from work.

With the lightning speed of news and volume of information that is available on the internet today, some of us have also developed a form of what I refer to as PADD, or Political Attention Deficit Disorder and have developed patterns of just skimming headlines and news articles, mainly due to very busy schedules. This past week in politics was quite a firestorm, with seemingly major headlines popping up at a furious pace that was hard for even this political junkie/citizen journalist to keep up with, so I decided to recap the action in an all-inclusive article with short summaries about this week’s headlines, and links to the detailed versions for concerned citizens that may have the extra time to devote to becoming an informed voter in 2012.

CDN also puts out a very informative weekly newsletter via email that you may sign up for here, ( right hand side, half way down on page) that includes extensive news and opinion articles from the great team of citizen journalists at CDN delivered right to your inbox. NOTE:  Your email will never be given out to other groups that tend to flood us with spam 24/7. We respect our readers way too much to play that game.

Topping the news this week is what is now known as  The Solyndra Scandal

Recap: The Obama administration, along with the DOE  fast-tracked a $535 million dollar loan to a company who was shown to be a bad investment of the taxpayer dollars, as they were making solar panels that basically cost twice as much to make as compared to what they could sell them for.  While G.W. Bush was in office he held off on making these Solyndra loans based on the fact that some people had proven this to be a company designed to fail. Then we have one Mr. Kaiser, an ardent Obama/Democrat supporter visiting the White House several times just before this “deal”  was ramrodded through, and whom stands to be paid off  for his initial investment of $150M before the taxpayers will see the return of any of their half a billion dollars. That is also illegal according to law.  This pay to play scheme perpetuated by the Obama administration where the taxpayers dollars are being blatantly funnelled to finance Obama’s election campaigns will not be going away any time soon. Stay tuned, as it is very interesting to watch as the Obama administration and their puppets scramble to cover this one up.

Next up is the U.S. Senate FEMA Funding Bill  Scheme:

Recap: Liberal Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid must have been working overtime when he made this headline at CDN. Progressive U.S. Senate Piles on the Debt with 2012 FEMA Bill.   Progressives from both parties in the U.S. Senate have decided to increase FEMA funding in their own bill there, in a blatant attempt to bully the House bill that is coming up in which reps. are asking for cuts in funding to avoid putting the FEMA funding on our children’s credit card debt once again. By the way, since that article was written, the Senate has passed that bill. This is political football and a waste of time to anyone who sees this gimmickry for what it is: Progressives trying to get a leg up on the conservative majority in the House through this pre-emptive strike that shows that they will demand more debt spending in 2012. NOTE: The White House asked for $5.1B, while the house bill calls for $3.65B. So the Progressives in the Senate want to almost double the amount of FEMA funding in the House bill. And they want to borrow the money to pay for it. While this comes as no big surprise from big government Liberals in Congress today, the eight Republicans who voted along with them sure have some explaining to do to we the people here. Are your reps among the great eight listed below that should have a “P” ( for progressive) following their name instead of an “R’ ?

ROY BLUNT ( R-MO),  Scott Brown ( R-MA),  Collins (R-ME),  HELLER ( R-NV),  Hoeven (R-ND), Murkowski ( R-AK),  RUBIO (R-FL),  Snowe ( R-ME) .** If any of these are your reps, and you voted for them as a conservative, call or write them and demand answers from these progressive big government debt dealer’s votes here. My Rep.,Mr. Marco Rubio will be hearing from me, no matter how long it takes to get him to answer for this inexcusable action. If this bunch of debt-spenders and  tricksters think just because they did this on a Friday we will not be paying attention and calling them out on this vote, they have another thing coming!  **Vote info pulled from senate.gov. on 9/17/2011.

The next news story involves the propagandists at the DNC creating a new citizen informant group called AttackWatch supposedly to combat misinformation spread by folks like us here at CDN. Michelle served up an excellent report  on AttackWatch here  and exposes the very misfits it comprises of, and their comedy of incompetence. While pretty much the whole nation is laughing at this bunch of Obama-sheep supposedly keeping an eye on what folks are saying about the chosen one, what isn’t so funny is the fact that many of these clowns are being paid for with your very own tax dollars to promote the Liberal Socialist agenda of the fake democrats and Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. When you start a propaganda group such as this one with taxpayer dollars, people just might start referring to you as a Josef Goebbels-type Nazi social engineer. Now there is something for the misfits of AttackWatch to spin into me calling Obama a Nazi. As they say, if AttackWatch wants a piece of me,,, ” Come get some.” Another cool saying comes to mind here, ” You can’t handle the truth” and the truth is what we tell here at CDN, 24/7.

While the Obama administration, along with the folks at DHS, ATF, and the DOJ would like us to quickly forget about the Fast and Furious scandalinvolving our government selling guns to drug cartels from Mexico, this story just keeps getting nastier and nastier as we witness the pathetic attempts to sweep this fiasco under the rug. Warren did an excellent job of detailing that injustice in the above link. Untold numbers of citizens and at least one border agent have been murdered by thugs wielding assault weapons that were fast-tracked purchases authorized by our very own government. The ATF are running a game of musical chairs in transferring employees directly involved in this scandal to posts in DC and elsewhere, in desperate attempts to shut down this investigation. This is sure to be a news story gift that keeps on giving for months or even years to come, until we get to the bottom of this and people are in fact held accountable, whether Eric Holder or Barack Obama like it or not. A society that doesn’t obey the rule of law becomes a lawless one in which murder and mayhem ratchet up across the country. Hold your ground Congressman Issa, for the betterment all of the law-abiding citizens of America.

In an early headline this week we saw President Obama hit the media scene with numerous demands to pass his American Jobs Act, including this intitial one: Obama Begins “Pass the Fake Jobs Bill” Campaign Today .  Obama somehow expected American citizens to somehow believe this was not a retread of his past failed stimulus bill that cost the taxpayers over $800B and left us with nothing more than a stagnant economy and miserably high unemployment. Obama and the DNC even sent out directives for their political operatives and Socialism-pimps in Congress to stop using the word “stimulus” completely. While team Obama were busy screaming at Congress to pass The American Jobs Act bill right now, even though it had not even been submitted to Congress, an enterprising Congressman submitted his own American Jobs Act here, leaving team Obama without a name for his supposed jobs bill.  Ryan posted the actual Obama jobs bill on CDN  here, just in case you are interesting in actually reading it. A quick summary of the bill is fairly simple. This bill contains many paybacks for Unions for their supporting Obama’s reelection campaign, albeit in a stealth way disguised as improving schools for kids, help for war veterans, and the always proven to be phony infrastructure funding, etc. It is also a pathetic attempt to pander to minorities and women for their votes, which Ryan points in the above linked article:

Just a quick note about the American Jobs Act website itself: It shows a clear distinction in the split in thought between mainstream America and the Beltway culture in general and Democrats in particular with its links where people can see the “impact” on women, Latinos, and African-Americans. Philosophically speaking, this is a despicable habit because it only seeks to separate people into inequality groups instead of counting everyone as simply “Americans” and reinforcing the idea that we are all created equal.

Bottom line: This retread of the failed stimulus bill is nothing more than a campaign tool for Obama and his Liberal Democrats as they desperately try to claw their way into forcing another four years of his failed, economy-busting Marxist wealth redistribution-for-votes campaign to remain in power. Even many Democrats are stating that this “bill” will not pass, whatever name they try to disguise it by. I totally agree with Ryan there,  that to inject race-based class warfare into a supposed  “American Jobs Act”  is very unpresidential, to say the least. Maybe the Obama handlers should have asked him to more aptly name that bill the ” minorites and womens jobs act to further divide America with class warfare” bill. But that title leaves out the Union vote-buying aspect of it, and we sure would hate to leave the Unions out of  Obama’s  supposed jobs bill title. Let’s just call it Obama’s failed stimulus 3.0 and call it what it is.

In other news, we saw that Glenn Beck has launched his new GBTV Internet TV show in an article that also includes videos here. Beck came out swinging at the Obama fake jobs plan and also a good expose’ on the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and how our own political correctness of today that leads us to avoid telling the truth about these terrorists that poses a huge danger to America today, and in the near future. Love him or hate him, Beck delivers some hard-hitting facts about the dangers of big government tyrants and always sprinkles his shows with doses of history that make it hard to deny how creeping Socialism is tearing apart America. Wanna-be Communists and Che-worshipping Liberal puppet-bloggers across the country are sure to be pulling their hair out at the reemergence of Glenn Beck and his own GBTV show. This should keep the misfits at AttackWatch busy for years to come, also.

In a breaking news story, there has been a tragic plane crash in Reno Nevada, as reported by our fearless conservative leader and founder of CDN, Mr. Rich Mitchell.Plane Crashes at Reno, NV Air Race Kills 3 [Video + Pictures] Here at CDN and across the country our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families of this horrible tragedy in Reno.

DNC's New Effort Allows People to Communicate Their Support for the American Jobs Act

Effort Includes Substantial Investment in Television and Online Ads, Website


DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE LOGO / Democratic National Committee. (PRNewsFoto/Democratic National Committee)

WASHINGTON Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ —  Today, the Democratic National Committee announced a new comprehensive effort to engage the American people in the important task of getting Congress to pass President Obama’s American Jobs Act to get more Americans back to work and put more money in the pockets of middle class Americans and small businesses. The effort includes television ads, online ads, and a website called www.americanjobsact.com.

The television ads, entitled “14 Months,” will begin airing tomorrow and will be the first round of ads in an effort that will last several weeks. The ads will run in Denver, Colorado; Tampa and Orlando, Florida; Des Moines, Iowa; Las Vegas , Nevada; Manchester, New Hampshire; Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina;Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio; Norfolk, Richmond, and Roanoke, Virginia; and Washington, DC.

The online ads, a 30 second ad named “Tomorrow” and a 15 second ad named “Relief,” will be placed on a variety of publishers and networks, including Facebook, YouTube, Hulu, Pandora, Huffington Post, Local News placements, and networks.

The website, www.americanjobsact.com, is a place people can go to learn more about the American Jobs Act, sign a petition in support of the Act, and help people call their Members of Congress asking them to vote for the legislation.

There are two versions of the television ad running in equal rotation in each market, one that includes several points from the President’s plan on screen and one that does not. The ads are running in heavy rotation on both cable and broadcast stations, including local news agencies, in each market.

After the DNC announced this new effort in support of the American Jobs Act, Democratic National Committee Communications Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“The most important thing we can do right now is set aside politics and put creating jobs and putting more money in the pockets of middle class Americans and small business owners ahead of an election which is still 14 months away. The President has a plan to create jobs and help middle class Americans get ahead and this effort is intended to communicate that plan to the American people and for Americans to communicate their support for his plan to their representatives in Washington. There is simply no time to waste.”

Obama Begins "Pass the Fake Jobs Bill" Campaign Today

The Classless Community Organizer will hit the campaign trail today to promote his misnamed American Jobs Act. Barack Obama will start off with another speech/publicity event from the rose garden on Monday morning. “Pass this bill now without reading it,” and “This is not just another failed stimulus bill,” will surely be two messages he will try to fool the people with, just for starters. Throw in a heavy dose of ” I am not responsible for the Liberal Democrats debt-laden spending spree of the last five years” and “Republicans want to kill babies and old people if they try to oppose this bill”  talking points memo he sends out to his Liberal media propagandists on a daily basis. Obama’s timeline for today’s propaganda event is quite enlightening, along with the subsequent plans to hit the campaign trail once again to organize the community to show support for a plan that has yet to be revealed.

While the actual bill will not be sent to Congress until tonight, President Obama didn’t waste any time trying to get public support for the plan, and continues this same pattern of cloudy bloviation in his recently announced community organizing schedule to promote his jobs plans this week.

First he made the big speech to a joint session of Congress that is supposed to be reserved for The State of the Union address and real national legislative emergencies. He essentially gets up on the bully pulpit and demands Congress to pass a bill they have yet to see or read. Right after said speech, he runs right over to Richmond, VA. to sell his undefined plan in another staged community organizing rally. Today, he will hold an event in the Rose Garden to again promote a bill that will not be sent to Congress until tonight, when they will actually be able to see what is in the bill. What kind of a publicity stunt can we expect to witness in the Rose Garden event? According to thehill.com:

On Monday, Obama will hold an event in the Rose Garden, an official said, where he “will call on Congress to pass the bill, which contains the kinds of proposals to grow the economy and create jobs that have been supported by both parties in the past.” (emphasis mine)

In keeping with Obama’s pattern of using people as stage props to imply that there is widespread support for his proposals, Obama will trot out the people who will supposedly benefit from this bill: UNIONS. Yes, there is an election coming up in 2012, and the desperate Barack Obama needs a few hundred million more Union dollars to buy his reelection, thus the Rose Garden event today, with subsequent campaign trips to promote it later on this week. ( which taxpayers will fund, of course)

 

“He will be joined at the Rose Garden event by people from across the country who would benefit from the American Jobs Act, including teachers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, small business owners and veterans,” a White House official said.

   After the Rose Garden Hollywood-style staged theatrical event, Barack Hussein Obama will then send the bill to Congress, (will the CBO ever be given the time to score this bill completely, unlike many of the fake Democrats past stunts?) and then he will head to Ohio and North Carolina to further try to make America believe that the largely stage-prop Union members he will be speaking to there represent ALL Americans in supporting another failed attempt at a Keynesian stimulus bill. This complete Hollywood stage act reminds me of another serious breach of integrity thrust upon Americans in a blatant attempt to tax and steal more money from the workers of America: Al Gore’s now totally debunked Climate Change propaganda movie, An Inconvenient Truth. 

     Why is all this time and effort being spent to promote a jobs bill, if it is truly a good thing for all Americans? Simply put, because if you tell a lie often enough there is hope that the people will eventually believe it. While it took Americans years to understand the grand lie that Al Gore’s whole life is based upon to enrich himself and the Democrats through his Climate Change movie,  An Inconvenient Truth,  Obama now knows that his fake jobs bill, once dissected by Republicans will not have any support from taxpaying Americans that have already seen massive explosions in national debt to the tune of over $4 trillion dollars since Obama took over the White House. Thus the demand to hurry, hurry pass this bill today coming from Obama and the fake Democrats of Congress.

     It isn’t just Obama that needs those hundreds of millions of campaign donations from the Unions in 2012. His far left Liberal pals in Congress have to feed  at that very same taxpayer-funded campaign trough too in 2012. Thus I expect Obama to receive huge support from the Liberals in Congress for this bill, if only to use it as a way to further bash conservatives. Tell the lies enough times, have the Liberal media repeat them over and over, and add a dash of ” It is all the Republicans fault” and  Obama mistakenly hopes to secure more 2012 reelection funding for himself and far left Liberals through his fake jobs bill. Americans have seen this act before and Obama is only fooling himself here. Oh, and let’s have the taxpayers fund it all, from the next two propaganda stops in North Carolina and Ohio right up to the fact that the taxpayers are funding the very same public sector UNIONS that Obama will trot out in order to make Americans think this fake jobs bill will actually create new jobs.  Right,  throwing millions more tax dollars to prop up bloated Union pension plans and their lavash lifetime healthcare benefits in order to buy the union vote is somehow supposed to be creating jobs. That, and giving unemployed workers  millions more in unemployment payments. That is some jobs plan, Mr. President!
