  • Time to Let the Country Crash?

    American Thinker ^ | 11/14/12 | Ebben Raves
    "Let it crash!" "Give them what they want and they'll see what happens!" "Surely, once the left's programs are implemented and the economy crashes, people will come to their senses." Since the election, many on the right have echoed this meme. They are convinced that widespread poverty and lack of opportunity will bring a resurgence of the America many of them knew growing up. Grandma and Grandpa's America. Perhaps these people forget that Roosevelt was re-elected three times during a depression that he helped prolong -- a depression that featured soup lines and starvation in a population that actually wanted...
  • Benghazi and Obama. What you are about to read is HUGE if true. Could mean the end of him.

    I received this message yesterday. IF this proves to be true, it is impeachable grounds. It also may help explain why Petreaus was forced out a few days before the Benghazi hearings coming up. It explains a lot of behavior by Obama and his administration - the pulled security, the "stand down" orders, and blaming that stupid video. The fireworks are coming. It will be the first of many disasters ahead. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, and intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama "staged" the attack in Benghazi in order to create a...
  • To Win, Obama Sacrifices House, State Legislatures

    11/15/2012 6:11:29 AM PST · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | November 15, 2012 | Michael Barone
    Barack Obama attended more than 200 fundraisers for his presidential campaign, but he refrained from raising money for congressional Democrats. That proved to be a wise move for him, as were his strategists' decisions to run heavy ad campaigns against Mitt Romney and to build an even more effective turnout machine in target states. But it proved to be less than helpful to his party. Democrats did gain two Senate seats thanks to clueless Republican candidates and Republicans' failure to produce better turnout. But Democrats got beaten badly in races for the U.S. House and state legislatures. That's clear when...

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The damage caused by Hurricane Sandy sent U.S. jobless claims soaring by 78,000 in the week ended Nov. 10 to an 18-month high of 439,000, according to the latest government figures. A Labor Department official on Thursday said claims surged in the eastern parts of the country that laid in the path of the storm....
  • Obama Administration Gave Petraeus's Wife a $187,605-Per-Year Job

    11/15/2012 5:14:02 AM PST · by Stand Watch Listen · 31 replies ^ | 14 Nov 2012 | Penny Starr
    ( – The Obama administration named Holly Petraeus--wife of retired Gen. David Patraeus, who resigned last week as CIA director after revealing he had had an extramarital affair--to a $187,605-per-yer job in the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB, created by the Dodd-Frank law, was placed by that law under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve. The funding of the CFBP, which comes from the Federal Reserve, is not subject to congressional oversight. Mrs. Petraeus became a member of the CFPB Implementation Team on Jan. 12, 2011. She is now the assistant director for the Office of...
  • Secession Craze in Post-Coup America

    11/15/2012 5:11:15 AM PST · by scottfactor · 26 replies ^ | 11/15/12 | Gina Miller
    According to the World English Dictionary, the French term coup d'état means “a sudden violent or illegal seizure of government.” The federal government of the United States of America has been seized by enemy forces from within our nation. Although not overtly violent at this point, this seizure has been illegal from top to bottom. Since the likely ineligible candidate Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) was installed in our presidency back in January 2009, this takeover has rapidly infected every area of our government and military. It is being run by a Communist-Islamist axis of like-minded, anti-American subversives....

    The Guardian, Monday 13 November 1933 08.01 EST The results of the German referendum and elections to the Reichstag yesterday show, as was expected, an overwhelming majority for Herr Hitler. A less expected result of the elections is the number of Germans who have dared to vote against Herr Hitler's policy. The electors were asked to say in the referendum whether they approved of Herr Hitler's decision that Germany should leave the League of Nations and the Disarmament Conference. In the elections to the Reichstag they were simply asked to vote for the Nazi list. There were no candidates to...

    Stryker Corporation has announced that it will close its facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs next month. It will also counter the medical device tax in Obamacare by eliminating 5% of their global workforce, an estimated 1,170 positions. Jon Stryker is heir to the Stryker Corporation, one of the largest medical device and equipment manufacturers in the world. Stryker’s grandfather was the surgeon who invented the mobile hospital bed. The company now sells $8.3 billion worth of hospital beds, artificial joints, medical cameras, and medical software every year. Stryker, a member of the Forbes 400 list, was...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | November 14, 2012 | Professor William A. Jacobson
    Operation Demoralize, the attempt to convince you that conservatism is dead, that you live in a media cocoon, that you are incapable of learning, and that your pundits lied to you, is dominating the media. But are the quick and easy answers — just say Yes to illegal immigration, higher taxes, creeping socialism — based on the reality of why the election was lost? Someone clearly outside the supposed “conservative media complex” suggests that the reasons being peddled for the loss are not accurate, or at least not the full story. Andrew Kohut, head of the Pew Research Center, writes...
  • Glenn Beck predicted Petraeus dismissal 2 weeks ago

    General David Petraeus resigned amid scandal last week after admitting he had cheated on his wife of 38 years with a woman 20 years his younger. Interesting timing, considering Petraeus was set to testify in the Benghazi investigation and will most likely no longer take part. Why now? And why was the man once hated by the left (‘betray-us’) there in the first place? “This all makes sense if you ‑‑ if you think like a revolutionary. Go back to where General Petraeus was when Barack Obama got into office. Do you remember? There were rumors that he was going...
  • Solution to Fiscal Clift: Look No Furhter than Obama's First Term

    opinion | 11/14/2012 | annajones
    Pundits, Politicians, etc are looking all over the map for a solution to the fiscal clift/sequestration problem. But the solution lies in what happened during Obama's first term. Under Bush/Congress the deficit increased 43% during his 8 year term (we had a real war, 9/11, and Katrina). Under Obama/Congress the deficit "doubled" during his 4 year term or "half" the time. Rather then us having to listen to threats to cut Social Security, Defense, or severe increase in Taxes shouldn't we go back to the problem that caused this Sequestration legislation to be passed in the first place? Should the...
  • Obama takes action on 'unreliable' power grid – in Pakistan!

    WND ^ | Nov. 14, 2012 | Steve Peacock
    Less than a week after Hurricane Sandy plunged much of the mid-Atlantic region into darkness, the Obama administration unveiled a new initiative aimed at mitigating the impact of “unreliable grid power.” Not across ravaged coastal New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, but in Pakistan’s Punjab province. The direct beneficiary of the administration’s generosity is a publicly traded Pakistani cement and concrete producer, according to a planning document that WND located via routine database research. The Lahore-based Pioneer Cement Limited, or PCL, requested a grant from the U.S. Trade & Development Agency, or USTDA – an independent White House entity –...
  • Vanity: War of Words Between Obama and Lindsay Graham

    11/14/2012 6:27:41 PM PST · by ConservativeMan55 · 38 replies
    Whatever many Freepers think about Lindsay Graham.. he certainly is not letting Benghazi go. Whatever his motives, he IS keeping it in the news. And if Graham hadn't kept this going then I'm not sure Obama would have gotten ANY questions on Benghazi today. Look for him to raise a big stink when Obama attempts to nominate Susan Rice for Secretary of State.... I think it's a mistake for O to start a war of words with Graham. As it will only keep Benghazi on the minds of the public. But Obama's ego won't let it go. This could get...

    In 1969, Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn (who were to become Pres. Obama's personal friends and associates for many years) put Charles Manson on the cover of their occasional newspaper, "Fire". Throughout their career as terrorist bombers, Ayers and Dohrn were constantly trying to break the Left free of its "bourgeois" commitment to any standard of justice or decency.

    House Republicans have to stop the president from hurting the economyNow that he never has to run for election again, President Obama can show his true colors. Mr. Obama made it clear Wednesday he wants to whack Americans with $1.6 trillion in tax increases so that an obese Uncle Sam won’t have to go on a diet. The only thing that can slow down his sharp turn to the left is the House GOP. “When it comes to the top 2 percent, what I’m not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don’t need...

    President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he has seen no evidence that a scandal that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus harmed national security. “I have no evidence at this point from what I’ve seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security,” Obama said at a White House briefing. Petraeus, a decorated four-star general who received widespread praise for the surge strategy in Iraq, resigned as CIA director on Friday, citing an extramarital affair. Numerous federal government officials have told NBC News that the married...

    We work hard, or we strive to find work while counted amongst 86 million “invisible” unemployed, or we stress as one of the Bureau of Labor Statistics 14.6% unemployed, and when rare tranches of time allow, during our otherwise consumed days, we sporadically tune into the mainstream media. The Gallup organization recently informed us that 60% of us do not trust the news media.  And yet, . . . it still influences our determinations as it wishes. Whether for news or entertainment, roughly 85% of our media is at minimum liberal minded and more often than not, very extreme in...
