    Former Border Patrol agent warns whatís coming By: James Simpson, DC Independent ExaminerThe video interview posted here is worth watching in its entirety. Zach Taylor is a 27 year veteran Border Patrol agent with supervisory experience. He has testified before Congress as an expert witness on criminal activity in wilderness areas. His message is credible. He accuses the federal government in a coverup that is deliberately shielding critical information from the public. Taylor says that whoever is perpetrating the border crisis is engaged in a perfect asymmetrical military tactic. While the American people focus on ďthe children,Ē he points out...

What made this already big news even bigger is the fact that the original call for proposals came out in January, long before the bulk of the illegal alien surge began. The breaking news youíre about to read is ten times bigger, because the following proves the Obama administration was bankrolling Americaís churches back in 2010....

I hoped -- nay, prayed -- I would be unseen by the hastily-deployed military and civilian martial-law enforcement squads. Following the roads was simply not an option. The checkpoints were placed every few miles leading out of Atlanta, and every one of them had armed personnel with ballistic armor. Some even had lightly-armored vehicles. No matter if you went by back roads or expressway, there they were - and all of them had a school bus or two to ferry you to...

    WASHINGTON - If anyone still thinks President Obama is serious about putting our fiscal house in order, Exhibits A and B prove he's been playing political games with this issue from the beginning. Exhibit A: The White House high command saw the full sequester budget battle -- not as an effort to curb out-of-control deficit spending that's driving the government into unfathomable debt -- but as a relentless, politically-driven opportunity to bludgeon the Republicans in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections. Obama's campaign-style events in recent weeks were a carefully- crafted effort in demagoguery to blame the GOP for the sequester...

    London-based American lawyers, who specialise in tax and immigration, report a threefold increase over the last five years in the number of American citizens who are giving up their citizenship - a process known as ďrenunciationĒ. Across the world 1,781 Americans renounced their citizenship in 2011 compared with just 231 in 2008, when US tax laws changed, although it remains unknown how many are adopting British rather than any other nationality. Many decide to give up their American citizenship after tiring of the lengthy US tax return process, which requires them to pay tax on their total income regardless of...

While about 8 percent of Americans are unemployed, nearly a quarter of Americans say they were laid off at some point during the recession or afterward, according to the survey. More broadly, nearly eight in 10 say they know someone in their circle of family and friends who has lost a job. ďThis to me is why the recession was so all-consuming and is...

    Once upon a time, Congress didn't want to raise the debt ceiling,sending the country into default. It was bad, and we shouldn't do it again. The end. Oh, you wanted to hear the rest of the story? Okay, here it is. Back in 1979, Congress waited, and waited, and waited to lift the debt ceiling, because Congress never likes taking responsibility for the tax and spending decisions it's already made. Now, Congress usually does the right thing after it's exhausted every other possibility, at least when it comes to paying our bills, and this debt limit increase was no exception....

But now an unlikely champion for U.S. growth under the Obama administration has emerged -- a former adviser to a Republican Party presidential candidate and Harvard history professor, Niall Ferguson, who says America could actually be heading toward a new economic "golden age."

Did you know that annual spending by the federal government now exceeds the 2007 level by about $1 trillion? With a slow economy, revenues are little changed.

Many are calling this a total "disaster" and are worried that the U.S. economy could be headed back into another recession. Economists had been expecting 150,000 payroll jobs would be added, so the 69,000 number really shocked a lot of people. The truth is that the economy needs to add approximately 125,000 new jobs every single month just to keep the unemployment rate steady. So yes, this bad jobs report is not welcome news...

The report also notes that, including those who haven't sought work in the past four weeks and those who are working part-time but seeking full-time employment, the unemployment rate would be 15 percent.

    President Obama last week brandished new jobs numbers as proof that his policies were having an effect on the unemployment rate, which the report said declined to 8.3 percent in January. The president is right about one thing: his big government agenda and class warfare tactics are having an effect -- but it's not the one he claims. In truth, last month's drop in the unemployment statistic was due largely to the evaporation of 1.2 million people from the labor force number. When people become so discouraged they stop actively looking for work, they are no longer counted as unemployed...

It covers emission rules for various industries, controlling the technologies the EPA finds achievable in the same sense that a choke chain controls a dog. The new MACT rules are going to come down hard on mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants, despite serious questions raised by critics about the EPAís methodology for calculating costs and benefits from the rule. Many of the...

    EVERYONE knows that something is wrong. What they do not realize is that this has ALWAYS been a global game. What are the implications of a global economy? As bizarre as this may sound, everything in economic theory that supports government manipulation and intervention into the domestic economy rests upon theories that the economy is exclusively domestic and takes NOTHING into consideration affecting local events from an external source. Why is this important to understand? The Sovereign Debt Crisis began in Austria in 1931. Once one country goes, capital looks around and then attacks the next country perceived to be...

    As Allahpundit wrote of last night's Senate vote to block the president's jobs bill, the outcome was just about as perfect as it could have been for the president, whose jobs package, loaded as it was with tax hikes Republicans were bound to reject out of hand, wasn't designed to pass in the first place. The vote last night provides the basis for Democrats to blame Republican obstructionism for the next 13 months of a slow-to-no recovery, and blame ‚Äėem they will. But they won‚Äôt just blame ‚ÄúGeneric Republicans.‚ÄĚ As the Senate now lays its plans to vote piece by...

    From Powerline.com comes a video that is beginning to go viral and to devastating effect for the Obama Administration. The President's words as a candidate, criticizing the Bush Administration, presented side-by-side with the statistics showing how much worse things have gotten under President Obama is an argument that is nearly impossible for any fair-minded person to rebut. http://www.breitbart.tv/devastating-video-obama-by-the-numbers/

    Just out from Challenger, the latest survey of job cuts: Employers announced plans to shed 115,730 workers from their payrolls in September, making it the worst job-cut month in over two years. Heavy reductions planned by the military accounted for a large portion of September job cuts, signaling what may lie ahead as the federal government seeks across-the-board cuts in spending. September job cuts were 126 percent higher than the 51,114 announced in August, according to the latest report on monthly job cuts released Wednesday by global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. They were 212 percent higher than...

    The data process used to arrive at the administration‚Äôs determination that greenhouse gases endanger ‚Äúthe public health and welfare‚ÄĚ violated the Environmental Protection Agency‚Äôs own peer review procedure, a new report from the EPA Office of the Inspector General reveals.Sen.

    Orders for long-lasting goods unexpectedly fell during August, the second drop in three months as manufacturers struggle with a bad economy. Durable-goods orders decreased by 0.1% from the prior month to $201.76 billion, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires had forecast a 0.2% rise in orders during August for durables, which are goods designed to last at least three years. The drop followed a 4.1% surge in July and a 1.1% decline during June. In an encouraging sign within an otherwise uninspiring report, a barometer used to gauge spending by businesses on equipment rose. Orders...

    ďGet out of the way.Ē With this statement, John Galt articulated the simple and necessary policy solution to the disastrous centrally-planned economy in Atlas Shrugged. Itís also sage advice that President Obama should consider before he unveils his latest jobs plan before the Joint Session of Congress tonight. This advice is strikingly prescient as our nationís economy moves ever-closer to mirroring the calamitous state of affairs that befell society in Randís novel. During his two and half years in office, Obama has crushed the labor market with a pro-statist agenda, which includes ObamaCare, the stimulus package, coziness to Big Labor,...
