    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted 2016 rival Donald Trump on Monday, questioning his ties to Democrats and previous support for liberal positions as the two battle for the top spot in Iowa."If he's giving checks to Democratic politicians and he supports their views... then it starts to suggest, 'gosh if he publicly supports their views if he finances their causes,'" Cruz told Boston radio station WRKO. "Then suddenly when he announces as a candidate for president, every single one of his views changes - listen if he has had a change of heart, I am thrilled." Cruz, who is competing...

    The decrease of the percentage of people between the ages of 40 and 55 caused a decrease in demand for real products like houses, furniture, cars, boats, etc. ...extensive immigration causes more problems than it solves, especially if the immigrants have no jobs, no families, don't assimilate and aren't between 40 and 55. The federal government ...invested in the auto industry, gave money to home lenders, gave bailout money to teachers, etc. And none of it worked because none of it solves the problem of decreased demand for products.

    The Columbus Dispatch ^ | 08/20/10 | Mark Niquette
    A local project that President Barack Obama cited during a visit Wednesday to Columbus as an example of how the federal stimulus package has worked isn't actually being funded with stimulus dollars. The president spoke at the North Side home of architect Joe Weithman, and both Obama's comments and information from the White House touted Weithman's work on a project that the president said was being at least partially funded by the $787 billion stimulus bill passed last year. "What we've been trying to do is to build infrastructure that puts people back to work but also improves the quality...

    Here is a new Naked Emperor News video that documents what an "epic fail" the 2009 "Obama Stimulus Plan" has been, as measured by the standards set by the Democrats themselves. They pushed the Stimulus Plan under the guise it was "critical and necessary" to create "jobs, jobs, jobs." But it has failed miserably to do so. The truth is that the "Obama Stimulus Plan" was the gigantic boondoggle giveaway to Democrat constituencies the Democrats have wanted to do for 40 years. In 2009, they finally had the votes and the President to do so. They used the economic crisis...

    When an initial report by a government oversight board claimed President Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan had already resulted in 30,000 jobs, the White House said that was evidence the stimulus was working. Now the Associated Press has reviewed the stimulus contracts and found, oops, the government exaggerated the job numbers. You always suspected your money was being flushed away. Now you have proof.

    Really? That's your claim to success? The millions of people on unemployment is now something to brag about? I also like how he takes Harry Truman's words, made popular again by Ronald Reagan, and attributes them to his grandpa. How many of those people on unemployment would have jobs but for Democrat meddling in the free market? How many were put out of work because of your social programs that caused this recession?On this Labor day, let's not be fooled by the rhetoric of this administration. Let's look at the facts, which are that unemployment has risen to 9.7 percent...

Maybe we can see where Fidel is mummified like Lenin. 2. He wants to redistribute wealth. More jobs will be created at printing firms that print "Honk if I'm paying your mortgage" bumper stickers. 3. He wants closer relations with Iran. What's wrong with a few nukes tossed at Israel? Its too crowded anyway. We're giving $900 million to Hezbollah in Gaza to rebuild.

    According to Rich Tucker’s Town Hall article of March 6, 2009, entitled Media Out on a Limbaugh (, Paul Begala spewed: “Rush is the bloated face and drug-addled voice of the Republican Party,” and “Along with lots of others, I intend to continue to turn up the heat until every alleged Republican either endorses or renounces Rush’s statement that he hopes our president fails.” Really? Perfect, then. This provides the perfect opportunity for Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and other conservatives in the media (and even other elected officials) to dichotomize this situation very clearly by “turning up the...

    A friendly conversation the other night about politics and the economy underscored the great gulf between perception and reality. The old saying is true that perception is reality, but, in reality, only if one doesn’t delve deeply into the subject in question. Here’s what happened. The after-dinner conversation turned to those Detroit CEOs who flew on corporate jets to tell a congressional committee they need taxpayer money to survive. Our guest was incensed at the audacity of these automotive swells, the personifications of corporate greed. I agreed their choice of transportation was boneheaded at best, and another reason why folks...

    Concerns about scams are growing as people try to take advantage of the government's latest stimulus package. Jane Driggs of Utah's Better Business Bureau says some Web sites that evoke the name of President Obama and the term "stimulus money" are nothing but scams. "People need to do their homework," Driggs said. One popular site offers a trial membership to put people in line for government grants, for $2.95 a month. But Driggs pointed out the fine print, which stated the customer "may" be charged a $69 per month fee on their debit cards if they sign up for the...

    It’s official. The Obama “Stimulus” Bill, a stinking pile of garbage and pork barrel spending, disguised as relief for our economy, passed both houses on Friday. The way it was crafted, the manner in which the voting public and members of the Republican Party were excluded, was dumb, infantile, shockingly crude and heavy handed.

    Barack Obama keeps referring to the current economy as the worst since the Great Depression, a bold lie that he hopes will allow him to prevent most Americans from recalling what sort of policies actually got us out of the worst economy the country had since the Great Depression, those of Ronald Reagan. Even Jimmy Carter inherited a much worse recession from Gerald Ford than Obama currently faces, and his policies ballooned that recession into epic proportions during Ronald Reagan's first term. So what did Ronald Reagan do to put an end to America's downturn? Thankfully, we don't need to...

    SNIPPET: "( - Two provisions in President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan could give the federal government the authority to oversee the medical decisions made between doctors and patients, critics warn, which could result in the rationing of health care. The plan to make all health records electronic and establish an effectiveness board to review health care costs was part of the $838 billion economic stimulus bill that passed the Senate Tuesday." SNIPPET: "Further, the legislation also spends $1.1 billion to establish a Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research, which would serve as an umbrella group for all federal...

    This isn’t a economic recover plan or a stimulus bill.  It is a Democrat wish list, a compilation of projects and schemes they have dreamed about but couldn’t get funded.  Under the advice of Obama’s Chief of Staff, they haven’t “let a crisis go to waste.”  They have even stuck a dagger in “very heart of the widely applauded Welfare Reform Act of 1996,” an Act that has proven positive results. With all the doom-speak, with all the speed and will all the spending, economist agree, this will not help the economy.  Even the Congressional Budget Office expects it to...

    If the agency responsible for reporting economic data to Congress as well as commenting on budget proposals concluded the Senate's stimulus plan not only won't have much positive impact, but will actually hinder output in years to come, shouldn't the American people be informed about this? On Wednesday, the Congressional Budget Office issued a rather pessimistic view of the stimulus bill in front of the Senate, and virtually no major media outlets reported it. Not the New York Times. Not the Washington Post. Not USA Today. Not ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or MSNBC. What were they hiding from the public?...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — While senators worked into the night on an economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama could sit back and relax — if only for a couple of hours — to observe a popular dance theater group at the Kennedy Center. Though it was announced earlier in the day the president would attend, the Obamas picked the right moment to reward themselves with the show. They left around a flurry of news that lawmakers had reached a deal on a stimulus measure at the heart of the president's plan for reviving the economy. The Obamas were accompanied by Attorney...
