Death and Deceit in Benghazi

We had hundreds of people watching in real time, as 30 Americans were being attacked for seven hours. Nobody rode to their rescue.” Obama and Hillarey Clinton lied They knew exactly what happened and who was responsible for it They knew it was not a video they knew it was not a protest that had gotten out of hand.

The White House situation room starts receiving emails at about 1 pm that the mission is under hostile attack. The only response was that the Pentagon sends a drone armed with a video camera so that everyone in Washington can see what transpires in real time, as it happens. The White House, State Department,the Pentagon, and the CIA all had live feeds.
Obama sat and watched the massacre. Three times the Seals asked for help and were denied. We had assets all over the area and none were called in to help. When it was over Obama went to Las Vegas laughing and joking. And for days kept telling the video lie on national TV.

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said that due to the lack of “real-time information,” he opted not to send help to the Officials under attack at the Benghazi Consulate. As you can see he was not telling the truth. Reports from several agencies includingReuters and CBS News reveal the administration knew precisely what was going on almost immediately  Obama is getting a pass, and his behavior is increasingly indefensible.

President Of The Free World Calls Springsteen A Couple Times A Week. So in the midst of worsening Middle East violence, a stagnant economy, and a fastapproaching fiscal cliff, President Barack Obama repeatedly calls a music entertainer and whines he does not have a campaign song. Almost as pathetic asthat scenario is the actual song someone put together. This is now truly acampaign running on spent fumes AquaStar commented “How about a Born in the USA”

The so-called “obstruction” by the GOP may be the only thing saving the middle class from Obama and the democrats.

Barak Obama said he should be held accountable but today wants to be accountable for absolutely nothing save for killing Bin Laden.

As democrats controlled the entire Congress and senate for the first two years of Obama’s term and were able to shove pretty much anything they wanted down the throat of the country it seems appropriate to judge this administration by the effects of the policies put in place by Obama and the democrats from after the time they were enacted.

Democrats labeled last year “the recovery summer” but it did not pan out that way. Obama’s election campaign theme seems to be “It could be worse” but the fact is things are not getting better- especially not for the middle class.Sentier Research has published data that show the middle class to be losing ground consequent to Obama’s policies.

Between June 2009 and June 2011: Barack Obama is a community organizer. He knows how to grow division and class warfare. He knows nothing of growing economies. Left alone in control, democrats created policies that were not only not helpful to the economy and the middle class, they are harmful. The so-called “obstruction” by the GOP may be the only thing saving the middle class from Obama and the democrats.

United States had been receiving oil at a discounted price from Canada, but that would end. In the future the United States will have to pay full price – no more breaks

Canada Moves to Cut Energy Taxes and Regulation as U.S. Energy Policy Falters

Our Northern Neighbor Moves to Cut Energy Taxes/Regulation to Boost Its Economy, But Not the U. S.
The United States should start taking lessons from Canada regarding oil development and its relationship to a pro-growth regulatory and tax structure. Canadian production of oil sands in northern Alberta is expected to reach 4.1 million barrels a day by 2020, up from last year’s production level of 1.6 million barrels per day. This area in Canada is the world’s third largest crude oil resource. Unlike the United States, Canada’s budget treats its energy resources as assets.

Equally important, unlike the United States, the Canadians understand that the regulatory review process is too convoluted, too long, and too expensive. The United States is headed in exactly the opposite direction.

Canada’s Government Direction.Canada’s provincial governments, led by Alberta in the 1990s, cut taxes, slimmed government and created a stable investment climate in order to encourage energy development. Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Ontario followed. In 2006, when the Harper government took control of the nation, Canada started to cut national taxes, trim government employment and secure free-trade agreements. Its corporate tax rate dropped to 15 percent, which compares to the U.S. rate of 35 percent.

The government has pledged to balance the budget by 2015 without raising taxes. That compares with four consecutive years of U.S. deficits of $1.3 trillion. Canada’s federal debt as a share of GDP is falling while that of the United States is rising, heading toward 70 percent.

Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty explained that policies to “raise taxes, increase government spending, and shun new trading opportunities” would “kill jobs, impose crushing deficits, and cripple our economy.”

Canada’s Oil and Pipeline Development

Three proposed pipelines, TransCanada Corp’s Keystone XL pipeline to Texas, Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline to the Pacific Coast, and Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Project are needed to transport the crude to buyers. Due to opposition to pipeline construction from environmental organizations, the national government is revamping legislation on environmental assessments for major energy projects. The Canadian government has concluded that existing laws have granted too much power to delay needed infrastructure by groups simply opposed to energy production.                                                                  Currently the United States is Canada’s largest export market for oil and Canada is America’s largest single source of imported oil. However, because President Obama “delayed’ the Keystone XL pipeline decision despite three years of study and subsequently found that the pipeline was not in the national interest,*Canada has decided to ship more oil to China and other Asian countries. It intends to press forward with a pipeline to Asia.

A May 3 poll conducted on behalf of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce found that the vast majority of Canadians believe they need to broaden their markets beyond the United States and that developing Alberta’s oil sands is more positive than negative. Three-quarters of those surveyed agree it is important for Canada to build the infrastructure needed to reduce its dependency on the United States for hydrocarbon exports. It is clear that the president’s decisions to postpone and reject the Keystone XL permit have had a profound impact on the way Canadians view the United States.

According to Canadian Prime Minister Harper, the United States under President Obama has become too unreliable an energy partner; leaving no doubt who will be to blame for rising prices in the United States in the years to come. Harper indicated that until now **the United States had been receiving oil at a discounted price from Canada, but that would end. In the future the United States will have to pay full price – no more breaks. Harper said, “Look, the very fact that a ‘no’ could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets.”

Policy and Data on U.S. Oil Development: The United States government is operating in sharp contrast to the Canadian government with more taxes, more regulation, and more red tape on energy industries.

According to a report by the Energy Information Administration, using Interior Department statistics, oil production on U.S. public lands is down 14 percent from last fiscal year, an outcome largely due to the moratorium and permitting delays that the Obama Administration put into effect after the oil spill accident in the Gulf of Mexico.[vi] Recently, the Obama Administration moved even further backward when it produced its draft offshore leasing plan for 2012-2017. It removed from leasing the offshore areas that President Bush and Congress had opened to drilling in 2008 when oil and gasoline prices hit a record high. The effect of the 5 year plan is that through 2017, U.S. policy will be no different than if the moratorium was never lifted.

Delays are rampant under the Obama Administration. According to Garret Graves, director of coastal activities for the state of Louisiana, “There have been intentional efforts to slow down new production by slowing the permit approval process.” For example, operators submit plans to the government before they can apply for permits, a process that used to take 50 days but now takes, on average, 212.

In the Western states of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, the U.S. Interior Department reduced the available lands for oil shale production by 75 percent. Further, the administration is promoting new environmental requirements that will negatively affect oil production on parcels already leased. And while the Trans Alaskan Pipeline System is moving less than a third of the oil it was built to move, which is currently produced on private and state lands, the Obama Administration is not opening Federal lands in Alaska to oil development that would sustain the life of the pipeline and provide domestic oil to the lower 48 states.

Conclusion

Unfortunately, President Obama’s debacle with the Keystone XL pipeline has left a bad feeling in Canada and the country is moving forward with plans to develop Asian markets for their oil sands that will just lead the United States further away from a stable oil environment in the future. While Canada is moving toward less regulation and debt reduction, the United States is doing just the opposite. Canada believes less regulation, less taxes, and less debt will boost its economy, while the United States is doing just the opposite with little progress towards a better economy.

Obama intent on submitting American citizens to the whims of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

At ThreatsWatch.org, Steve Schippert and Clyde Middleton have dug up the bizarre and unsettling issuance of an executive order recently signed by President Barack Obama. Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 12425, signed December 16 and released a day later, grants the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) rights on American soil that place it beyond the reach of our own law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Schippert and Middleton note that Obama’s order removes protections placed upon INTERPOL by President Reagan in 1983. Obama’s order gives the group the authority to avoid Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests — which means this foreign law enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against governmental abuse. “Property and assets,” including the organization’s records, cannot be searched or seized. Their physical locations and records are now immune from U.S. legal or investigative authorities.

***This international police force (whose U.S. headquarters is in the Justice Department in Washington) will be unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution and American law while it operates in the United States and affects both Americans and American interests outside the United States.

Some bloggers covering this story are noting that the law enforcement agency to which Obama has extended such extraordinary powers to has had a dismal past.

INTERPOL’s senior leadership was flush with Nazis from the late 1930s all the way into the 1970s. That fact allowed, going Godwin isn’t necessarily relevant to today’s organization. Khoo Boon Hui of Singapore is the current president of the organization, and the current secretary general is American Ronald Noble. Noble is perhaps best known in America for overseeing the Treasury Department’s review of the disastrous 1993 raid and siege of a Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, that left nearly 80 people dead. Noble had cautioned against the initial raid plan as being too dangerous, but the lack of any significant ramifications for federal officials that approved of the raid and allegations of a cover-up have inspired conspiracy theorists to derisively dub Noble “the Enforcer.”

But INTERPOL’s past isn’t what concerns us at this moment. Its current actions and the actions of our president are those that we question.***
With the flourish of a pen and no warning at all, Barack Obama surrendered American sovereignty to an international force with a checkered past. To what end?
The consensus opinion among those commenting on this development is that the most radical president in American history seems to be intent on submitting American citizens to the whims of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Previous administrations have been very leery of signing onto agreements that would make citizens susceptible to the ICC, due to the possibility that U.S. servicemen could be dragged into show war crimes trials. Such events are obviously heavily politicized, and demands for war crimes arrests can come from any government, even those that sponsor terrorism or genocide themselves.

No finer point can be made about the endemic problems of the INTERPOL/ICC than that made by a recent diplomatic incident that erupted in Great Britain, where an Israeli government official had to cancel travel plans to England because of an arrest warrant issued by an English judge — because of Iranian charges of Israeli war crimes in Gaza. The brief but intense conflict was one Iran helped instigate, as the Persians supplied the terrorists in Gaza with the rockets they used against Israeli civilians, triggering an inevitable Israeli response.If President Obama and his radical allies in the Democratic leadership have their way, American soldiers could presumably be brought up on charges as war criminals by enemy nations and marked for arrest and deportation by an international police force on American soil. They would face charges in a foreign land without the constitutional protections they fought and bled to protect. The White House seems to be on the bewildering path of giving al-Qaeda terrorists who murder innocent women and children more legal protection than the very soldiers that risk their lives trying to bring terrorists to justice. The asinine court-martial charges being brought against three Navy SEALs based upon the word of a terrorist they captured suddenly make a sickening kind of sense.

It also stands to reason that Obama’s seeming willingness to put American soldiers’ lives in the hands of a corrupt international community could also be brought to bear against his political enemies. Foreign investigators of dubious intent, and our own left-wing extremists, have long branded officials of the previous administration “war criminals” for actions they’d taken in the war on terror. It is entirely conceivable — perhaps even likely — that these same organizations and enemy governments that went after 25 Israeli government officials through INTERPOL and the ICC would quickly move to indict a wish list of current and former U.S. government officials for alleged “war crimes.” Former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney would obviously be at the top of such a list of politically motivated suspects, but such a list could just as easily include General David Petraeus, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, congressmen, and senators.

As the Iranian gambit has shown, Obama’s bizarre assault on U.S. sovereignty could have disastrous repercussions. We can only hope that his fetish for weakening this nation can be stopped before American politicians and servicemen are made pawns by our enemies.

Millions of retirees today, who do not think of themselves as rich live off the cap gains and dividends from a lifetime of savings and investment

Billionaires and millionaires benefit from a lower capital gains tax because almost all of their income comes from capital investment in our economy. But they’re not the only ones who benefit from the lower tax.More than half of all American workers who save for their retirement years by investing in stocks, mutual funds or other assets also pay the same rate that Buffett does on their capital gains and dividend income. But Obama doesn’t seem to understand this or conveniently chooses to ignore it because it sounds fair.  (div tax raises up to 40%)

Millions of retirees today, who do not think of themselves as rich, live off the cap gains and dividends from a lifetime of savings and investment and pay 15 percent on that portion of their income.

But while Obama is ranting about “fairness” in the tax code, that isn’t the problem facing our country or that most Americans care about right now. What they’re worried sick about is a weak economy that’s barely growing at a snail’s pace and the need for good paying jobs that are in short supply.

This is the legacy of Obamanomics.He isn’t talking about about growing the economy or jobs or incentives to boost capital investment to escalate new business creation that is the wellspring of a prosperous, capitalist country.

No, he wants to distract voters from his failures on the economy by playing the class warfare card and calling for inserting some theoretical egalitarian fairness into the tax code.

“Running left-wing movements has always been the prerogative of spoiled rich kids. This

Thomas Sowell understands this transformation well. “As a young political leftist, I saw the left as the voice of the common man. Nothing could be further from the truth,” he wrote in his book aptly titled Is Reality Optional? He continued,

Running left-wing movements has always been the prerogative of spoiled rich kids. This pattern goes all the way back to the days when an over-indulged and affluent young man named Karl Marx combined with another over-indulged youth from a wealthy family named Friedrich Engels to create the Communist ideology.

The phoniness of the claim to be a movement of the working class was blatant from the beginning. When Engels was elected as a delegate to the Communist League in 1847, in his own words, ‘a working man was proposed for appearances sake, but those who proposed him voted for me.’ It may have been the first rigged ‘election’ of the Communist movement but it was certainly not the last…. The anointed have always wanted to create their own kind of people, as well as their own kind of society.”

Already influenced by the Communist poet, Frank Marshall Davis, Obama attended the elite Punahou School in Hawaii. He studied at prestigious universities such as Columbia and Harvard. His rise to power was funded by rich, liberal men and foundations. They sought his talents and used his rage to facilitate change.As a “community organizer,” Obama was supported by The Woods Fund, a wealthy left-wing foundation. So were Bill Ayers and two radical training organizations founded by Alinsky’s disciples: “The Center for Community Change” and “The Midwest Academy.

It was a 1960s leader of the homegrown terrorist group Weatherman, a Communist-driven splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society Characterizing Weatherman as ‘an American Red Army,’ Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows: ‘Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents

According to David Freddoso, author of The Case Against Barack Obama, Obama and Bill Ayers served together as board members of The Woods Fund from 1999 to 2002. The Woods Fund also supports the radical activities of (Acorn)the “Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.” So do our taxes!

I have heard stories about massive voter registration drives and preparations to get out the vote with the help of unions, teachers, and other Obama fans. Chief among these groups is ACORN, or Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a radical group that has been caught engaging in voter fraud. Not surprisingly, Obama has close ties to the group since his days as a ‘community organizer’ in Chicago.

“…Obama had been a key ally of ACORN. His influence at charitable foundations ‘allowed him to help direct tens of millions of dollars in grants.’ [The New York Times] also noted the key role ACORN played in helping him win his first state Senate race in Illinois. Like many other radical organizations, ACORN’s strategies are based on Alinsky’s revolutionary tactics. Since socialists are not accountable to traditional ethics, ACORN’s dishonest dealings — exposed by Michelle Malkin’s article titled  $800,000 campaign secret payment to ACORN 

“There’s much more to the story of Obama’s amended campaign finance reports than what Obama and the Obamedia will tell you…. What we have here, essentially, is Obama using a non-profit group called Citizens Services Inc. as a front to funnel payments to ACORN for campaign advance work. Obama officials say it’s no big deal.

In 1992 Obama helped start another revolutionary organization, Public Allies. He resigned the next year, before Michelle Obama became the executive director of its Chicago chapter. Apparently, Obama plans to use it as the model for a national service corps — a “Universal Voluntary Public Service.”

“The pitch Public Allies makes on its Web site doesn’t seem all that radical. It promises to place young adults (18–30) in paid one-year ‘community leadership’ positions with nonprofit or government agencies. They’ll also be required to attend weekly training workshops and three retreats. In exchange, they’ll get a monthly stipend….

But its real mission is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about ‘social change’ through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation — the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul ‘The Red’ Alinsky….

“I get to practice being an activist, and get paid for it,” gushed Cincinnati recruit Amy Vincent….”When they’re not protesting, they’re staffing AIDS clinics, handing out condoms, bailing criminals out of jail and helping illegal aliens and the homeless obtain food stamps and other welfare…. It’s training the ‘next generation of nonprofit leaders’ — future ‘social entrepreneurs.’….

“Not all the recruits appreciate the PC [politically correct] indoctrination. ‘It was too touchy-feely,’ said Nelly Nieblas… ‘It’s a lot of talk about race, a lot of talk about sexism, a lot of talk about homophobia….’

“The government now funds about half of Public Allies’ expenses…. Obama wants to fully fund it and expand it into a national program that some see costing $500 billion.”

A national militia and Community policing

“I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am president of the United States … this will be a central cause of my presidency,” says Barack Obama.

So how will such “active citizenship” change America? How will he use his mandatory “service learning” programs — and his proposed “civilian national security force” (remember, it will be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as our traditional military)?

We find some clues in the article, “Community Oriented Policing,” by Phillip Worts, a detective with the San Diego Police Department. Ponder these excerpts

“Social chaos is the GOAL for the transformational Marxist. The crisis of crime and disorder is the door for the … facilitator/change agent to enter the community and to initiate the paradigm shift! Even though these social architects plainly admit what is most vital in making for a crime free community, they have absolutely no intention of restoring ‘individual conscience’ or going back to repairing the traditional family. On the contrary, for the past sixty years these socio-psychologists have been introducing these very dialectic concepts into our school system with the intent of demolishing personal conscience….”:

“Just in case you doubt the Marxist nature of their concepts of community transformation, Trojanowicz quotes Saul Alinsky, the extreme Marxist change agent of the 60’s who authored Rules for Radicals. Alinsky proposed ‘we begin viewing community through the prism of issues (Issues= problems= crisis= conflict)…

“Formerly, the police administrators were accountable to the elected officials who were accountable to the voters (representative democracy). This new paradigm that Trojanowicz describes is exactly what Marxist George Lukacs termed ‘participatory democracy‘ and is nothing more than the Soviet style council

“The United States Constitution was the law of the land (absolute authority) restraining government intrusion into the rights of the individual. The framers designed it to insulate the private realm (the individual) from the public realm (government).

 Your neighborhood cop is now that facilitator, the Soviet.”Reality versus Delusion You’ve seen that the socialist power structure thrives on conflict, compromise, manipulation and deceit. It spreads its illusions by hiding its totalitarian aims under the noble banner of community service.

Obama Bundler Tied To Chinese Government?

by Ed Morrissey

Recall almost four years ago, where Team Obama campaign websites turned off credit card security checks that allowed fraudulent and foreign donations to flow into the campaign. Could that be happening again? According to a new independent report from the Government Accountability Institute and reported by Breitbart, not only is it actually happening again — it’s actually gotten worse. A bundler for Barack Obama has set up a shady website operation to collect donations to the campaign, but it’s based in Shanghai, and the bundler has ties to the Chinese government:

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections (visit campaignfundingrisks.com to download the full report).

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.” There’s more.

The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors tob enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

GAI notes that the connections between the bundler and the Beijing regime come through China’s state-run media:Obama.com Purchased By An Obama Bundler In Shanghai, China With Questionable Business Ties to State-Run Chinese Enterprises: In 2008, Obama.com was purchased by an Obama fundraiser living in Shanghai, China, whose business is heavily dependent on relationships with Chinese state-run television and other state-owned entities.And not surprisingly under these circumstances, more than two-thirds of all traffic to Obama.com comes from outside the US:

Team Obama disabled the security processes for credit-card transactions designed to detect fraud and other illegal activity — but only on contributions. Those security protocols are fully engaged for merchandise purchases:

Barack Hussien Obama and handlers using the Cloward and Piven Plan

by Pat Buchanan

With the acts outlined below, Barack Hussien Obama and his
regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding
constituency of voters dependent on big
government; a vast privileged class of public employees (unions) who
work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and
installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme — all devised by
Barack Hussien Obama and handlers using the Cloward and Piven Plan
“Correctly attributed!!” says Snopes:

The health care bill had very little to do with health
care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions
of hospital and health care workers, as well as
adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will
join government employee unions).
Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans
will add trillions to the national debt.
What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of
those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government .
Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill
In the middle of a depression?

Cap & Trade.

Like health care legislation having nothing to do with
health care, Cap & Trade has nothing to do with global warming.
It has everything to do with redistribution of income, with government in
control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors.
Those powerful and wealthy unions andcontributors (like GE, which owns NBC,
MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants.
Make Puerto Rico a state. Why?

Who’s asking for a 51st state? Not Puerto Rico.
Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government
entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?
Certainly not American taxpayers.

But this has been Barack Hussien Obama’s and his handlers plan all along.
His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and
a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
Legalize 12 million illegal Mexican immigrants.
Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care
alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America
But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be
counted on to support big government.
Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to
dependent children, food stamps, free medical,
education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security

Stimulus and bailouts.
Where did all that money go?
It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN),
and unions — including billions of dollars to save or
create jobs of government employees across the country
.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep
paying union dues.
It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama
almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All those public employees (unions) will vote loyally Democrat to protect
their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America ..
The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak
future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow
more powerful. The ends justify the means.
Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, andjob creators.
Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers,
redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did
nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama).
Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government.
Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to
starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Barack Hussien Obama and his
regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding
constituency of voters dependent on big
government; a vast privileged class of public employees (unions) who
work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and
installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

As he has each February for years, Charles W. McMillion of MBG Information Services has compiled the stats on the industrial decline of his country under our free-trade presidents. Here are but a few numbers for the decade from December 2000, the month before George W. Bush took the oath, to December 2010, the end of Obama’s second year.

In that decade, America ran a total of $6.1 trillion in trade deficits, more than our entire economic growth. To finance those 10 years of deficits, America had to borrow $1.553 billion every day.And we wonder why China owns America.

In 2010, our trade deficit in manufactures alone rose 27 percent to $416 billion, far exceeding our trade deficit in crude oil. A decade of such deficits in manufactures has devastated the industrial states.
