    Pelosi Claims Government Created the iPhone, Not Steve Jobs or Apple Aaron Kliegman BY: June 9, 2016 10:45 am House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) claimed Thursday that the federal government created the iPhone rather than the technology company Apple or its former chief executive officer, Steve Jobs. “Anybody here have a smartphone?” Pelosi asked an audience at a Democratic National Convention Platform hearing in Washington, D.C. Pelosi then held up an iPhone for everyone to see, telling those in the room, “In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in research.” She then listed elements of the...

    Pres. Obama doubled down on his infamous “You didn’t build that” claim when he declared “You can’t build” that and then told college graduates they gained their degrees by being “lucky.” In remarks about the economy on Friday, Obama chastised those who think they’re self-sufficient and don’t need government:“You can’t build your own metro system. You can’t build your own highway. You can’t build your own airport. And so we have a specific problem with under-investing in infrastructure.”Then, on Saturday, Pres. Obama told Howard University graduates that his “pet peeve” is people like them who don’t credit luck for their...

    President Barack Obama it putting in a few good words for the “spirit of innovation” that he says turns ideas into jobs and growth. He commented Monday before setting out on a tour of the Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial technology trade show, taking place in Hannover, Germany. The U.S. is sponsoring this year’s show and Obama says it’s another chance to urge people to buy “Made in America.” …

    How’s this for a depressing passage: “There’s just a lot more regulation going on,” Zelizer said. “There’s a lot of intersection between the economy and Washington.” “There’s just a lot more regulation going on.” My liberal friends, “regulation” is the mother’s milk of the crony capitalist state, the “fascist light” state. Our system of “regulation” is in most regards now just a vehicle for rent seeking. Blindly defending regulations in 2014 because liberals are supposed to be for regulation, is to give power to a vested corporate oligarchy. Am I saying that all regs are bad? No. Am I saying...
  • Magazine cover conjures 'Hillary's nightmare'

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 8, 2013 | REBECCA BERG
    A new edition of the left-leaning magazine The New Republic imagines Hillary Clinton's political "nightmare" as a crowd of people holding up Elizabeth Warren masks. The Image, an homage to the original promotional poster for the film "Being John Malkovich," will run with the tagline, "A Democratic Party that realizes its soul lies with Elizabeth Warren instead." Clinton, who is weighing a bid for president in 2016, is widely viewed among Democrats as the party's logical nominee should she run. Unlike in 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama was making overtures about a serious bid for the presidency, no apparent Democratic...

    In his latest Investment Outlook, titled "Scrooge McDucks," the outspoken Pimco co-founder said that with tax reform back on the radar, the focus should be on taxing the wealthy. Yes, he knows the rich work hard. And yes, he knows they pay an outsized share of the taxes. But Gross said the wealthy really didn't earn all of their wealth. They are lucky beneficiaries of a decades-long credit boom that poured money into the hands of the financially skilled. "You did not, as President Obama averred, 'build that,' you did not create that wave," he wrote. "You rode it. And...
  • Obama Tells Entrepreneurs “You Didn’t Build” Your Business

    That sound you hear is silence—as millions of small business owners and entrepreneurs were left speechless this weekend from President Obama’s latest insult. The slap in the face to hard-working Americans conveyed Obama’s belief that it takes a village—a heavily subsidized village—to create that venture you’re profiting from: Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. Obama pushed his policy goals of infrastructure (aka stimulus) spending and “government research” as part of a...

    President Obama welcomed the NCAA Champion Louisville Cardinals to the White House on Tuesday, praising some of the star basketball players by name, then noting that Coach Rick Pitino is the first coach in history to win a championship at two different schools. “But Coach understands he didn’t do any of this alone. As he said, ‘Players put coaches in the Hall of Fame,’” Obama said. But Pitino’s record shows that he's the one who’s made winners out of his players, not the other way around. The president has used a similar refrain—that success is always a collective achievement—in the...

The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won't be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol to watch Obama take the oath of...

    The Presidential debates were Exhibit A for Obama's habit of "misplacing the truth" (ie lying). Obama told lots of hard-to-believe whoppers about his support of guns; his love of the oil, gas and coal industries; his unshakeable loyalty to Israel; and of course his response to the Libya Embassy attack. Boy can this guy misplace facts. Only a lawyer could say stuff like that with a straight face. But the biggest whopper of all was when Obama claimed to be a champion of small business. He stressed this misguided storyline in all three nationally-televised debates. Obama even made a specific...

Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan rose from obscurity and in the process built modern America. Their names hang on street signs, are etched into buildings and are a part of the fabric of history. These men created the American Dream and were the engine of capitalism as they transformed everything they touched in building the oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobile and finance industries. Their paths crossed repeatedly as they elected presidents, set economic policies and influenced major events of the...

    Last Friday, GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney disclosed his tax returns and health records. In particular, the release of the tax information was a pleasant surprise –released without pre-announcement or fanfare. Romney gave information that dates back to 1990 which ought to close Harry Reid’s mouth for a time .....–it would be absolutely wonderful if the “right” would get such a disclosed-documentary surprise from President Barack Obama. ...What are Americans on the “left” afraid of learning about Obama? Simple curiosity would demand that Obama’s academic records be released –let alone really wanting to know about the past of the man...

    While Democrats have insisted that Republicans ‘built their entire convention around something the president never actually said’ and whatnot, there were certainly enough entrepreneurial, hardworking, small-business-owning Americans who took umbrage with President Obama’s candid comment as a startlingly frank admission of his worldview to have the White House scrambling to redefine the president’s remarks. Too little, too late, though — finally, Obama’s mere words were really resonating with people again, but in all the wrong ways. Two videos, the first a fun new remix from Hugh Atkin: (VIDEO AT LINK) And the second, a simple breakdown from Mark Matson: “Yes,...

    GLIDDEN, Iowa - William J. Clinton and three other locals — Tim, Jeff and Jack, who declined to give their last names — sat at the Dairy Mart lunch counter, a Carroll County roadside staple on the Lincoln Highway for more than 60 years. Besides a name, Clinton said, he shares only one thing with America’s 42nd president: “We are both from the South and both Democrats.” He and his lunch-counter buddies voiced displeasure with America’s direction. “Let me tell you something,” Clinton said. “It takes more than pretty words to run the country. I was fooled once by the...

    Only In Massachusetts: Elizabeth Warren Supporters Debate Her Hair, Glasses, And ImageBy Todd Domke September 15, 2012 Please check your U.S. history textbook. Has there ever been such impassioned debate among campaign activists over their candidate’s image? If you haven’t noticed, commentaries and reader comments at WBUR and in other media have generated a great controversy: Some supporters of Elizabeth Warren think she needs a makeover and others believe she’s wonderful as she is. Dan Payne, my Democratic counterpart, brought this simmering disagreement to a boil when he wrote a commentary, “What’s Wrong With The Warren Campaign?” Dan offered a...

The more you listen to, the more he steps in it.), is extremely funny and will make you laugh, but the statement reveals (again) Obama's Marxist, anti-America, anti-freedom philosophy of government's role...
