    Obummer's October Surprise is Here!!

    Exclusive: In heated ’07 speech, Obama lavishes praise on Wright, says feds ‘don’t care’ about New Orleans


    In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

    “The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

    The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.

    With liberty and taxes for all

    Best way to limit growth of government is to make sure everyone has "skin in the game."

    "They'll turn us all into beggars 'cause they're easier to please."

    That's a line from a 1980s rock song, but it's a pretty concise summary of the Obama administration's political approach: Vote for us because we'll take other people's money from them and use it to buy you stuff.

    Whether it's Sandra Fluke's contraceptives, Obama's "spread the wealth" response to Joe The Plumber, his 1998 plan to make welfare recipients a majority coalition or the free phone in the viral "Obamaphone" video, that's the gist of it. And it obviously works.

    This was the essence of Mitt Romney's worries about the 47% of Americans receiving government benefits. But things aren't as bad as he fears. Happily, Americans are more sensible than that. According to a national poll last week, 79% of Americans think that all Americans should pay income tax, regardless of their incomes. That includes 85% of Republicans and 83% of independents. Even Democrats agree, by an overwhelming majority: 71%. Politicians should take note: these are huge margins.

    These Americans understand instinctively what a recent report from the Tax Foundation said: "Aside from the revenue impact of not having 58 million Americans pay income taxes, economists worry about the social and political effects of having so many people disconnected from the cost of government — a phenomenon known as fiscal illusion. The concern is that when people perceive the cost of government to be cheaper than it really is, they will demand ever more government benefits because they either don't feel the cost directly or believe that others will be paying those costs. Indeed,when one takes into account those who do not file, about half of all households pay no federal income tax, making the situation particularly worrisome in a majority-rule democracy."

    One response, of course, is that people who don't pay income tax still pay other taxes, like Social Security payroll taxes, Medicare, and various federal excise taxes. That's true, of course, but it misses the point. The point isn't whether people are "freeloaders" who don't pay any taxes. It's whether people have "skin in the game." If you take me to an expensive restaurant for dinner but let me put money in the parking meter out front, that doesn't provide me any incentive not to order the lobster. Splitting the check, on the other hand, will cause me to think twice. It's like health insurance, where experience shows that even a small co-pay makes a difference in what people spend.

    With the likelihood of some sort of tax reform in the next four years, we should look to structure things in ways that discourage overspending, and over borrowing, by your elected leaders. Giving everyone some skin in the game might do that.

    I'd like to see a system where everyone pays some minimum amount of tax — enough to notice, say 2%-5% of gross income. And that amount should go up noticeably when the federal government spends more, and go down noticeably when it spends less.

    In a given year, that might only affect some individuals by a few hundred dollars, but as anyone who has followed local-government property tax fights knows, people can get pretty exercised over a few hundred dollars when they know it's coming out of their pocket and not someone else's.

    We're going to have to get federal spending and borrowing under control. Making over spending painful to the electorate is a good way to start. And a lot of Americans seem to get that. Politicians, take note.

    A PRINTABLE CHEAT SHEET: A simple one-pager you can give to any undecided voter you know


    All of us know plenty of folks who don't pay as much attention to politics as you and I. They might be busy with kids, or helping out an elderly parent, working two jobs, or volunteering with church, school or sports. Nonetheless, I feel it's important to illustrate -- in simple form -- the real world impact President Obama's policies have on everyone.

    Trinity Church members reveal Obama shocker!

    ---->>>Another October Suprise (May be a surprise to some but not the well informed)

    NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public

    It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama.

    Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church who claim the president benefited from Wright’s efforts to help black men who engage in homosexual activity appear respectable in black society by finding them a wife.

    The 2003 New York Times story, “Double Lives on the Down Low,” said that though many black men reject “a gay culture they perceive as white and effeminate,” they “have settled on a new identity, with its own vocabulary and customs and its own name: Down Low.”

    The Times said that while “there are black men who are openly gay, it seems that the majority of those having sex with men still lead secret lives, products of a black culture that deems masculinity and fatherhood as a black man’s primary responsibility – and homosexuality as a white man’s perversion.”

    The Down Low Club at Trinity “doesn’t have meetings, and it isn’t like the Rotary Club,” a source identified for this article as “Carolyn” explained to a WND investigator in Chicago.

    image - Vice President Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Charlotte, NC, on Tuesday said that the “middle class has been buried over the last four years.”

    The remarks came after the vice president warned that a GOP victory in November would mean an increase in taxes for the middle class.

    “This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest,” said Biden.

    “How they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years? How in Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts,” he added.

    >>>The Obama economy has crushed the middle class—with more than 23 million Americans struggling for work.
    Thanks Joe!
    We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

    Richard Nixon resigned over a cover up.
    Bill Clinton lost his Law License and was Impeached over a cover up.
    Will Oblame-O use his Executive Privileged Pen to cover all of this up

    Scandal 1: Fast and Furious. Kevin O’Reilly was suddenly transferred out of the White House and into Iraq in July 2011.

    Scandal 2: Kathleen Sebelius breaks federal law, keeps her job.

    Scandal 3. Obama administration leaks sensitive national security information for political purposes.

    Scandal 4. Obama administration tells defense contractors to violate federal law. Bonus: Obama administration says it will use taxpayer dollars to pay any government fines incurred.

    Scandal 5: Libya. On Sept 8, 2012, the U.S. government starts to get warnings that terrorists intend to strike in Cairo, Egypt, and in Libya. Threats in Libya against the U.S. ambassador there had been ramping up for months. On Sept 11, 2012, the terrorists strike and in Libya, they sack the largely unprotected U.S. consulate and murder the ambassador along with three other Americans.

    The L.A. Times Suppresses Obama’s Khalidi Bash Tape

    ---->>>If this tape would be released the Illegal Resident in the White House would be TOAST...Breitbart has offered $100,000 for its release.

    So now, let’s leave thought experiments and return to reality: Why is the Los Angeles Times sitting on a videotape of the 2003 farewell bash in Chicago at which Barack Obama lavished praise on the guest of honor, Rashid Khalidi — former mouthpiece for master terrorist Yasser Arafat?

    At the time Khalidi, a PLO adviser turned University of Chicago professor, was headed east to Columbia. There he would take over the University’s Middle East-studies program (which he has since maintained as a bubbling cauldron of anti-Semitism) and assume the professorship endowed in honor of Edward Sayyid, another notorious terror apologist.

    The party featured encomiums by many of Khalidi’s allies, colleagues, and friends, including Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator, and Bill Ayers, the terrorist turned education professor. It was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), which had been founded by Khalidi and his wife, Mona, formerly a top English translator for Arafat’s press agency.

    Is there just a teeny-weenie chance that this was an evening of Israel-bashing Obama would find very difficult to explain? Could it be that the Times, a pillar of the Obamedia, is covering for its guy?

    Go Mitt Romney!!....You kicked butt last night!! Obama looked like he was hoping that someone would pull the fire alarm in the hall so that he could escape the uncomfortable situation....It is quite evident that he is totally clueless without the teleprompter and having someone spoon feeding him the answers to the questions. I Love It!! And the big deal that libtards are talking about is Romney will get rid of Big Bird....

    I can't wait for Ryan to pummel Biden in their debate!!

    According to the The New York Post George Zimmerman is suing NBC over NBC's Today show airing an edited audiotape of George Zimmerman's 911 call the day he shot Trayvon Martin in Florida.
    The complaint will be filed against NBC News President Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen who was the Today reporter involved in the March 27 broadcast.

    A source told the Post, "The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment."
