    Vladimir Putin is now threatening all of the Ukraine. See here. Robert Mackey notes how, "As the United States condemned a referendum on the future of the Crimean peninsula staged by pro-Russian separatists on Sunday, one of Russia’s most influential television hosts appeared on the evening news in Moscow, before a huge mushroom cloud graphic, to remind viewers that Russia is still “the only country in the world capable of turning the U.S.A. into radioactive dust.” Rita Biesemans, in a comment left one post on this Blog dealing with masonic infiltration of the Catholic Church, had this to say: "When...

    One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents. Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in...

    Words matter. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your healthcare plan, you'll be able to keep your healthcare plan, period,” President Obama said during a speech to the American Medical Association in June 2009. Honoring your commitments is the cornerstone of trust in our leaders. The American people won’t accept illusions or misdirection’s. That’s why its troubling that because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare, Medicare will be cut by $1.05 trillion, 6.3 million Americans have lost their healthcare coverage since its implementation and millions more stand...

    Obamacare doesn't work. That's not a political statement, that's a fact. Like the sun rises in the East or that Kanye loves Kanye. Another indisputable truth is that - after its passage and being upheld by the Supreme Court, and after its implementation and subsequent unilateral changes by President Obama and his administration - you still don't know what this law is, how it works or why you should even care. By this time, you're disgusted; you just want to start again. That Administration doesn't want to start again. They want to pretend that all is well while they make...

    A confidential training manual for Obamacare navigators that threatens prosecution for unauthorized dissemination is on the Internet for the world to see. The 217-page manual reads like a primer for Amway or novice car salesmen, offering sales advice on how to disarm potential customers who could be lured into purchasing insurance through exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act. Section headers include “Smile: Maintain a Positive Demeanor,” “Make the Customers Feel Welcome,” “Listen” and — in what must now seem ironic given Barack Obama’s troubles with over-promising — “Build Trust: Be True to Your Word.”

    The White House systematically delayed enacting a series of rules on the environment, worker safety and health care to prevent them from becoming points of contention before the 2012 election, according to documents and interviews with current and former administration officials. Some agency officials were instructed to hold off submitting proposals to the White House for up to a year to ensure that they would not be issued before voters went to the polls, the current and former officials said. The delays meant that rules were postponed or never issued. The stalled regulations included crucial elements of the Affordable Care...

    Bill Ayers’s latest “memoir,” Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident, like all his writings, is not worth reading, except to keep up with the lies he is spreading. Ayers, like his 1960s terrorist comrades, counts on the ignorance, gullibility, and tender emotions of the youth. Given the way the history of the 1960s is taught today, young people just might believe the Weatherman terrorist’s claims of being censored and persecuted, and a victim of a McCarthy-ite witch hunt. He even likens himself to Galileo.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

    On July 18, President Obama held an event at the White House to promote Obamacare. It was Calculated Deception writ large, which is Obama’s rhetorical style of taking advantage of what he shrewdly calculates the great majority of average Americans will not know, and what he is certain the so-called mainstream media will not tell them. That smacks of third world style, authoritarian propaganda. Obama falsely claimed, “In states like California, Oregon, Washington, new competition, new choices, market forces are pushing costs down.” I have already discussed in prior posts the misrepresentation regarding proposed premiums for 2014 on the California...

    Not much is truly known about where House Speaker John Boehner stands on immigration reform. He says he wants it done, but has barely waded into the policy. But in a closed meeting with his closest Capitol Hill allies — a group informally known as Team Boehner — he’s giving more clues. Rubio talked about the Senate Gang of Eight immigration bill, according to sources familiar with the meeting. Boehner didn’t heavily weigh in on the legislation, but the fact that he would welcome Rubio in to talk about the bill. shows that the speaker is actively gaming out the...

And I did.” Reality: Obama has clearly broken his 2008 “firm pledge” not to sign “any form of tax increase” on families making less than $250,000. Of the twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare, no fewer than seven of the taxes fall directly on middle class families, and many more will raise costs indirectly for these families. Of recent note, Obama has altered his tax pledge: In a second term, he only promises not to raise income taxes on those making...

As a result, airline pilots are none-too-pleased, and could create countless problems for the millions of passengers the airline serves each year.

    Simpson-Bowles targets permanently higher taxes. According to the Simpson-Bowles co-chair report, the revenue target of their proposal is to “cap revenue at or below 21 percent of GDP.” The Simspon-Bowles revenue target is much higher than the historical average. Using historical data either from CBO or OMB, it’s clear that the historical tax revenue burden is closer to 18.5 percent of GDP. Simspon-Bowles is a $5 trillion net tax hike relative to historical tax levels. If Simpson-Bowles’ revenue target was in place for the whole next decade, it would raise $5 trillion more in tax revenue than if historical revenue...

    President Barack Obama has altered his 2008 “firm pledge” that no family making less than $250,000 per year would see “any form of tax increase.” Obama has now limited the pledge to merely “income taxes” – and only for “next year.” On Sept. 12, 2008, speaking in Dover, New Hampshire, candidate Obama said: “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” But this Wednesday, August 8,...

    With the Olympics and upcoming election dominating news coverage, The United Nations' International Telecommunication Union (ITU) World Conference on International Telecommunications in December is not a likely source of interest for most Americans. Yet it certainly should be, for the anti-freedom, pro-regulation policies being considered at the conference are serious enough to have given rise to a rare show of bipartisan action in Congress. The ITU Conference will, among other things, be considering proposed amendments to an international telecommunications treaty, two of which are of particular concern to advocates of a free and unregulated internet. In light of this threat,...
  • Claire McCaskill to Missouri Farmers: You Didn’t Build That

    Yesterday, Senate Democrats dropped President Obama’s proposal to raise the death tax in favor of their own. Their plan included stripping all death tax provisions out of S. 3412. By purposefully dropping the death tax provision, at the end of the year the tax is set to revert to pre-2001 tax cut levels, a rate that is higher than the President’s initial proposal. With her AYE vote on S. 3412, Senator McCaskill voted to subject Missouri small businesses, farms, and ranches to millions of dollars in additional taxes on earned assets. In 2006, McCaskill said that she supported “extending the...

    Eleven Southern California business owners met this week with Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, at a Costa Mesa manufacturing plant. On the wall behind Mr. Romney's chair hung a large banner that read, "We did build it!" – with "did" underlined for emphasis. The banner underscored how out of touch President Barack Obama seems with what makes the American economy work. The business owners echoed the ire of those nationwide who do understand what makes the American economy work. Their words Monday in Costa Mesa directly refuted the president's now-infamous campaign utterance of last week: "If you've got...
  • Government deception in Sacramento? Say it’s not so!

    What happens in the real world when those who are fiscally responsible for managing other people’s money hide it and engage in other deceptions? Yeah, they go to jail or at least get sued and have to pay up. What happens in Sacramento? We have a couple of examples of such shenanigans...
  • Obama Does “Fair Share” of Whining about Truth on Obamacare Tax Hikes

    Over the last couple of months, Americans for Tax Reform has highlighted the 20 new or higher taxes on American families and employers created by Obamacare. The significance of these tax increases is that they are a direct violation of candidate Obama’s promise not to raise “any form” of taxes on these families. In an attempt to justify this widely unpopular piece of legislation, the Obama campaign released their own sort of “Fact Check” today. The response, however, missed the mark by ignoring hard numbers and common sense. They chose 5 of the 20 overall new or higher taxes to...
  • The ACA: A Tax Disguised as a Penalty

    As poet James Whitcomb Riley wrote, if it looks "like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, call that bird a duck." The individual mandate upheld by SCOTUS last week not only looks like a tax, functions like a tax, but it is also enforced like a tax. Any cleverly veiled description of the individual mandate as a "penalty" and thus not a tax, blatantly overlooks the fact that it is a tax. Thanks to Congress' legal contortions of our system of jurisprudence, the individual mandate has been allowed to limbo under the bar of judicial...
  • FORGERY-GATE OBAMA'S SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER CHALLENGED

    If Barack Obama has an immediate eligibility problem, it is more likely to derive from the Social Security Number he has been using for the last 25 years than from his birth certificate. Ohio private investigator Susan Daniels has seen to that. On Monday, July 2, she filed suit in Geauga County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court demanding that Jon Husted, Ohio secretary of state, remove ObamaÂ’s name from the ballot until Obama can prove the validity of his Social Security Number. Daniels, who has vetted thousands of Social Security Numbers for numerous other clients, has done her homework. In her...

    I suspect the essentials of Keynesian economic theory were scribbled as a faculty prank on a monogrammed napkin in the Harvard Business School cafeteria. After a few laughs, the discarded joke was left on the table with empty coffee cups and a half-eaten bagel; only to be discovered minutes later by an opportunistic work-study sophomore clearing the table. The crumpled napkin was auctioned as the hottest & newest economic pop-theory to a fast-talking tabloid freelancer (who had been to Vegas with his columnist-buddy at The Globe, and had the goods on him). After some hard-nosed and expensive negotiations, the freelancer...
