  • Cain's Tax Mutiny. New national sales tax on top of the income tax is a political killer

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Oct 7, 2011 | WSJ Editorial
    The real political defect of the Cain plan is that it imposes a new national sales tax while maintaining the income tax. Mr. Cain's rates are seductively low, but the current income tax was introduced in 1913 with a top rate of 7% amid promises that it would never exceed 10%. By 1918 the top rate was 77%. Part of Mr. Cain's appeal is his willingness to challenge political convention, and he certainly has with his tax proposal. Voters like that he isn't a lifetime politician but a successful business owner who has met a payroll and created jobs. But...

    I've been seeing this Internet lie sweep across the Internet in the last 24 hours or so, claiming that St. Louis Swat is keeping people from getting their money from the bank, and threatening the Occupy St. Louis group. ACTUALLY, the video is from an August 12th Protest Rally called "Midwest Rising", featuring all of the useful idiot suspects of the Radical Left. From the Rally Website: "Who: 400 people from 50 different organizations, including a cross-section of labor, community and climate organizations. Organizations represented include: Missourians Organizing Reform and Empowerment, Rising Tide, Climate Action STL, St. Louis Instead of...

    President Obama spun a work of creative nonfiction yesterday in his latest pitch for his jobs plan, fudging the facts of a Boston schoolteacher’s White House visit as he cast the man as a poster boy for the hot-button bill. “I had a chance to meet a young man named Robert Baroz,” the president said at a midday news conference. “He’s got two decades of teaching experience. He’s got a master’s degree. He’s got an outstanding track record of helping his students make huge gains in reading and writing. In the last few years, he’s received three pink slips because...

    BOSTON (CBS) – President Obama used the story of a Boston teacher to push his jobs bill Tuesday, even though the teacher has a job. At the beginning of his White House news conference, Mister Obama told a story of how he recently met Robert Baroz of Wellesley, an English teacher in the city. (Snip) But, Baroz is working in the Boston Public Schools this year as a middle school English teacher. He’s employed through a U.S. Department of Education teaching fellowship. On the D.O.E.’s web site he writes that he’s also employed part-time as an English instructor at Mass...

    "The idea of a mentally ill vice president who suffers in complete isolation was obviously sparked by the behaviors I witnessed by Sarah Palin," Wallace tells Time. "What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency? What would they do? How long would it take for people to figure it out? I became consumed by this question." It's not surprising that Wallace would choose a public forum to portray Palin in such a negative light. Wallace's name was near the center of post-campaign speculation about unhappiness with Palin within the McCain...

    It seems the public's interest in Sarah Palin has reached an all-time low. The latest film to put the potential presidential candidate in the spotlight has bombed at the box office. ...... With Palin, the darling of the Tea Party, still deciding if she will try for the Republican Party nomination the lack of interest from the viewing public could finally persuade her not to run.

    Chuck Heath, Jr., brother of Gov. Sarah Palin, has provided the statement below to Big Government and Big Journalism: "The McGinniss book is filled with one lie after another. The final straw for me was when I learned that he used me as a source for his lies about my sister and brother-in-law’s marriage. He included in his book comments falsely attributed to me by one of his unnamed sources. Neither McGinniss nor Crown/Random House reached out to me to verify, or even comment on, this alleged hearsay from an unnamed source. They just ran with it, and as a...

    On July 3, 1999, The New York Times exposed Al Gore for lying about his family in a national convention speech as vice president of the United States. In 1996, Gore had moved the Democrats to tears by claiming that when his sister Nancy died of cancer in 1984, he vowed then and there to oppose the tobacco industry. How courageous – and completely untrue. The Times found Gore campaigned in 1988 boasting of his tobacco-farming prowess. So he lied through his teeth. Network coverage from ABC, CBS, or NBC on this whopper, even as Gore prepared a presidential run?...

    Republican Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina received a ton of flak for shouting “you lie” in the middle of President Obama’s rally-for-Obamacare in a joint session of Congress. The issue was whether Obamacare would cover illegal aliens. PolitiFact called it one of the greatest distortions in that debate and bragged about calling it a half truth in a post on January 20, 2011: No new benefits for illegal immigrants. If they make a highlight reel of the health debate, they will surely include the moment when Republican Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina shouted ” You lie!” at President...

    (CNSNews.com) - The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced on Tuesday that it has awarded $28.8 million to 67 community health centers with funds from the Obamacare health reform law. Of that $28.8 million, "approximately $8.5 million will be used by 25 New Access Point awardees to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers," Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Spokeswoman Judy Andrews told CNSNews.com. HRSA is a part of HHS. Andrews said that grant recipients will not check the immigration status of people seeking services. “Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask...

    Lieutenant General John Allen told the Senate Armed Services Committee today that the Afghanistan decision President Obama announced last week was not among the range of options the military provided to the commander in chief. Allen’s testimony directly contradicts claims from senior Obama administration officials from a background briefing before the president’s announcement. In response to questioning from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Allen testified that Obama’s decision on the pace and size of Afghanistan withdrawals was “a more aggressive option than that which was presented.” Graham pressed him. “My question is: Was that a option?” Allen: “It was not.” Allen's...

You can listen to Glenn describe what happened here. The account involves people shouting nasty things and even a cup of wine being kicked onto Glenn’s wife. “These people were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen,” Beck said. “All I wanted to do is go out on a blanket with my family and have dinner in the afternoon sun and sit around Americans, not like-minded Americans,...

    Newly obtained documents raise the question of whether Elizabeth Warren, a top aide to President Obama and liberal darling, lied to Congress in downplaying her role in ongoing settlement negotiations over a major legal dispute. Warren, who has said she is “advising” the President on establishing the nascent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] – a new federal agency created by the Dodd-Frank financial reform law that does not obtain any legal authority until July 21 – is actually leading the organization as if it already existed, documents show. Her aggressive push of “CFPB’s view,” as one email puts it, is...
  • Obama falsely claims that GM repaid bailout… Again

    For the second time President Obama has falsely claimed that General Motors repaid the bailout they received from the American taxpayers. The first time Obama lied to the American people about GM repaying its loan was in April 2010. This past Saturday the president was at it again telling a crowd in Ohio “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes American taxpayers for their support during my presidency.” Glenn Kessler does an outstanding job ripping the president apart at his blog the Fact Checker but the key to Obama’s argument are the words “during my presidency.”...

    Detroit — General Motors Co. CEO Dan Akerson wants the federal gas tax boosted as much as $1 a gallon to nudge consumers toward more fuel-efficient cars, and he's confident the government will soon shed its remaining 26 percent stake in the once-bankrupt automaker. "I actually think the government will be out this year — within the next 12 months, hopefully within the next six months," Akerson said in a two-hour interview with The Detroit News last week. He is grateful for the government's rescue of GM — "I have nothing but good things to say about them" — but...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner encouraged a porn star to lie about their on-line relationship and offered her the help of his public relations team, according to a report on Tuesday. Weiner sent emails to former X-rated performer Ginger Lee – to whom he’d previously acknowledged sending innocuous messages via Twitter – coaching her to deny that they had been communicating, reported TMZ, which obtained the messages and says the two had exchanged “scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.” “The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer...
