Jon Lovitz Nails Obama on Hannity

JLov

By now, most readers know about Jon Lovitz’s tirade against President Obama’s “Tax the Rich” philosophy.  His opinion on this matter has been so popular that he’s been asked to discuss it on cable news several times now.  In one of his more articulate appearances, he explains to Sean Hannity that as a “rich business owner”, his employees get paid, but more often than not, he “doesn’t make a dime”.  It’s a pretty thought provoking look at an issue that America likes talking about, but doesn’t seem to like resolving.  Stick around for the end, when Lovitz asks Sean “if he’s from Kenya”.

Oops! Obama’s Secretary Pays A Higher Tax Rate Than He Does

Does anybody remember President Obama moaning about Warren Buffett paying a lower tax rate than his secretary?

Well guess what, the Anointed One pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.

(From ABC)

President Obama today released his 2011 federal income tax, with he and his wife reporting an adjusted gross income of $789,674. The Obamas paid $162,074 in total tax – an effective federal income tax rate of 20.5%. The Obamas also reported donating approximately 22% of their income to charity — $172,130.

President Obama has been making a big political push for the “Buffett Rule,” which would require millionaires to pay a minimum of 30% of their income in taxes. To illustrate the point, the president has pointed out that billionaire investor Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than does his secretary.

President Obama’s secretary, Anita Decker Breckenridge, makes $95,000 a year. White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage tells ABC News that Breckenridge “pays a slightly higher rate this year on her substantially lower income, which is exactly why we need to reform our tax code and ask the wealthiest to pay their fair share. ”

It should be noted that president would not be impacted by the Buffett Rule, though he would see his taxes go up if the so-called Bush tax cuts on higher income wage-earners were allowed to expire, as the president says he wants.

So…. How’s he going to spin this one?  Or will he even bother?  It’s not like Mr. Hope and Change has much shame, anyway.

ICE Arrests 300 Fugitive Illegal Aliens in South Florida

 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials Monday announced the arrests of 330 fugitive illegal aliens in one of the largest customs enforcement operations ever undertaken in South Florida. The arrests were made over a two-week period and involved Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Broward counties. In an apparent slap at President Obama’s recent executive- amnesty orders that he is trying to implement once again by executive fiat, while completely ignoring the fact that Congress voted down his Dream Act, Michael Rozos, the Director of ICE’s Florida field office stated: "Our message is clear: The days when illegal aliens in this nation willfully ignore immigration judges’ orders are over."  How refreshing it is to hear that a government agent is demanding that the rule of law in America be obeyed 24/7/365 !  Thank you Mr. Rozos.  Warren Buffet received the "Medal of Freedom" for basically being nothing more than a political operative in support of Obama, so what say we give Mr. Rozos 10 Freedom Medals for keeping Floridians free from these illegal criminals and their effects on our economy and state programs before we end up 20 billion dollars in the red like the proud Illegal Sanctuary State of California:

   

Officials said the arrests are just a small portion of the nation’s backlog of immigration violators: about 597,000 total fugitives. The numbers are so large that South Florida’s enforcement teams are set to increase from five to seven later on this month.  When DHS Secretary Janet napolitani says that our southern border is more secure than ever before in history based on the number of phony deportations,she is proven not only to be a mathematically-challenged propagandist but also proven to be a danger to this country. When JNP, (for Janet Napolitano the Propagandist) all you have to do to understand her manipulation is to watch the show  Border Wars on the Nat-Geo channel.

 In that show we see illegals caught trying to sneak into the country, actual convicted felons and drug smugglers, along with human traffickers that are caught near our border simply turned loose back to Mexico in a little known gimmick as "Voluntary Return." JNP then counts these voluntary returns as "deportations" to inflate the DHS statistics. When she claims that deportations are up by a whopping percentage, that is largely due to the fact that before her appointment as the  DHS  Dream-Act- Queen- by Barack Obama, they did NOT count people stopped at the border as being deported. A person caught while illegally entering the United States is not in fact "deported, but she knows this, yet uses it anyway to skew the deportation statistics. According to ICE/DHS statistics,  there are over 500,000 fugitive illegal aliens in America today who simply ignored the Immigration Judge’s deportation order and are running loose in America in violation of federal law. This is also a huge part of the DHS hidden Dream Act fraud being played upon America today. When honorable state ICE and other  law enforcement agencies arrest illegals they turn them over to the FEDS, who more times than not let them go simply if they promise to show up for an immigration hearing.  Which they promptly ignore, so then we have the added cost burdens of filing felony  fugitive warrants on them. Why in the hell not send them back to their host country immediately, as our original laws call for, instead of releasing them for years and then having to track them down?  This appears to be a simple case of ignorance and incompetence from within DHS, UNLESS someone wanted to overload the system in order to collapse it to effect the very same "transformative change,"  as it states in the Rules for Radicals Marxist operators manual written by Saul Alinsky, and stated much-favored reading material of Barack Obama while in college.

 There are currently estimated to be between 15 and 20 million illegal immigrants in America today. Considering that, contrary to the lies and propaganda spewed by the  irresponsible vote-beggars of Congress, these illegals are crushing State’s budgets, especially Medicaid funding.  Who do you think picks up the tab for the millions of illegal anchor babies born in this country  year, after year, after year, Santa Claus?  The Easter Rabbit? The Tooth Fairy? Lets get real here people . One simple example of Illegals costing taxpayers billions of dollars a year, thanks to the Congress critters who refuse to obey the law and deport them immediately upon discovery,  WIC, the program for AMERICAN  Women, Infants, and Children has now become MWIC, for Mexican Women Infants and Children,  and we see the proof every single time we go to the grocery store here in Florida!  There is basically only one requirement to get  WIC coupons from our taxpayer-funded WIC program: Applicants must live in the state in which they apply.  So much for the lies being told that illegals are just hard-working people who increase our revenues and are not a drain on our society there, isn’t it? 

Thank you again Mr. Rozos, and all the brave ICE agents of Florida for trying to enforce immigration laws in Florida and deport them as mandated in said laws. Eventually the DHS Dream Act puppets that are ignoring federal immigration laws and the Congressional refusal to enact The Dream Act, should and hopefully will be brought up on charges one day soon. Just like in the U. S. Military, when a government official orders a subordinate to break the law, said official can be brought up on criminal charges. What say you Congress?

              27-year veteran ICE Chief Anthony Mangione arrested on child porn charges in Broward County Florida.

In related Florida immigration news, we see that the Director of the Florida ICE office in Miami was arrested on child pronography charges last Tuesday according to local media reports. Fighting child pornography was one of the tasks that the Miami ICE office. Another case of the fox being put in charge of guarding the hen-house there. In something that appears to be some kind of cover-up, ICE Chief Anthony Mangione’s arrest was documented in Broward County public records, but specific charges were not listed immediately. The FBI has found child pornography on his home computer after it was confiscated back in April as part of a child porn investigation.Mangione has been with ICE for 27 years and was soon set to retire. Now it appears as if he will be "retiring" to prison for several years, if these charges are proven correct. Federal officials at the Justice Dept and U.S. Marshall’s offices are refusing to comment, pointing to this as still being an ongoing investigation with possible future arrests. If this man is proven guilty, it is good to see him taken off the streets of Florida and away from our children.

 

 

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 !
