President Obama said it right: "This country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules." He laid out ways we can create more opportunities for working families -- helping students get an education without getting crushed by debt, expanding access to paid sick time and family leave, and investing in medical and scientific research for the future. He also made clear that the White House will push back hard against efforts to roll back critical Wall Street Reforms. Families just need a level playing field, and if they can get it, we can rebuild America's great Middle Class. It's time to get started.
David Cay Johnston: Obama launches tax ploy against GOP State of the Union address pushes tax reforms to set stage for 2016 electoral fight, January 21, 2015 2:00AM ET "The most political law in America is the federal tax code. Far from being grounded in sound economics and the Constitutional duty to promote the general welfare, it’s shaped by influence won with campaign contributions and lobbying. We are about to see just how political tax law is thanks to a savvy move by President Barack Obama to frame the 2016 election in ways that will help Democrats keep the White House. In his State of the Union address, the president proposed a host of tax ideas Republicans have long advocated in order to force them to choose between Main Street and Wall Street... Obama’s proposals would cost $230 billion over ten years — less than $2 billion per month. The cost of this modest tax relief for Middle Class Americans would be paid by raising taxes at the top by $320 billion — a bit more than $2.6 billion per m ...
Wall StREET PLAYING CONGRESS Wall St. doing a better job with attacking Dodd-Frank than Republicans have with Obamacare. NYT: “The financial industry has been methodical, drafting technically complicated legislation that can pass the heavily Republican House with a few Democratic votes. And then, once approved, Wall Street has pushed to tack such measures on to larger bills considered too important for the White House to block … Proponents of regulation say that they are badly outgunned by an army of Wall Street lobbyists, and complain that the Obama administration has been too weak in its response.”

A former White House official says the terrorist attack that killed 12 people on Wednesday in Paris was a false flag operation “designed to shore up France’s vassal status to Washington.” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, who was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, made the remarks in an article published on Thursday. “The suspects can be both guilty and patsies. Just remember all the terrorist plots created by the FBI that served to make the terrorism threat real to Americans,” he wrote. He said that the French economy is suffering from the US-imposed sanctions against Russia. “Shipyards are impacted from being unable to deliver Russian orders due to France’s vassalage status to Washington, and other aspects of the French economy are being adversely impacted by sanctions that Washington forced its NATO puppet states to apply to Russia.” Dr. Roberts stated that French President Francois Hollande this week said that the san ...

Fox News PRESS, LEFT SWOON FOR WARREN Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is still using a strict present-tense “not running” as her answer to questions about her possible presidential ambitions. But that seems increasingly likely to change given the overwhelmingly positive (and generally overwhelming) coverage of her bid to harass the White House and Senate leaders over Wall Street carve outs stuffed in a fiscal-cliff spending bill. The Daily Beast called her the “most powerful Democrat in America.” The WaPo warned Warren’s moves may force 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton to alter her plans. And Warren got star treatment all up and down the major media corridor. Most remarkable is that in doing what was previously called reckless embitterment when Republican renegades did it, Warren is leading a movement in which “the Democratic Party debates its soul.” Oh dear. Somebody get the smelling salts. [Howard Kurtz writes: “She’s been a press favorite roughly forever. But by standing up to a Democ ...
Now three hours from a possible Government Shutdown, tonight's showdown over the omnibus spending bill is a test for Democrats as well as the country. Republicans should not be allowed to eviscerate the remaining limits on big money in politics and Wall Street's gambling habits, and also defund the EPA and IRS. The most disappointing aspect of this sorry mess is the White House's eagerness to appease the Republicans. It's a worrisome harbinger for what will happen after the GOP takes over Congress in January. What do you think?
Another fact to bring up while I'm on a roll here. When the new Congress is sworn in after the new year the Republicans will Take Control of the Senate. Some of the new Republican Senators have indicated they are in support of privatizing Social Security. Do you really want Wall Street controlling your S. S. benefits? You know, the same greedy crooks who wiped out the life savings and pensions of millions of senior citizens who depended on those investments to support themselves in their "golden years." If the Republicans and conservatives win the White House in two years we will actually have a one party government. And with a conservative Supreme Court the Republicans will have complete contol of this great nation. Is that what you really want?

Subject: Wall Street Sizes Up Obama A "deadly accurate" article regarding Obama, by the Wall Street Journal, which today is the most widely circulated newspaper in America. Written by Alan Caruba: "I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he's led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group (George Soros anybody?) took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House. In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45? "Dreams of My Father" was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The "Audacity of Hope" followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did write them himself. There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill Ayers, a man who calls hi ...
Cyberattack on JPMorgan Raises Alarms at White House and on Wall Street
Was listening to Cornell West this morning talking about the "legacy" of President Obama good and bad and he basically reinforced what I've been saying. Even though I believe Cornell West is a hater, he made some good points. He said that Obama is a great communicator and will always be the first African American to occupy the White House. On the negative side, he said Obama encourages the privatization of public schools, where this is the New Democratic platform. He also said that the drone usage is killing thousands of innocent children around the world, which I agree. The last thing he touched on, which I've said countless times is that he is a Wall Street President and never went after those who continue to prey on the poor like the banks Obama promised he would fervently go after. Six years later banks are still up to their tricks and Wall Street is still conducting business as usual. Jobs have not come back from over seas.

The great British historian Arnold Toynbee once remarked that civilizations perish from either suicide or murder. Having rejected the beliefs and values that first brought it into being and then propelled it to greatness, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that Western Civilization is bent on self-destruction. Still, the possibility of murder cannot be ruled out. According to Wall Street investment counselor David John Marotta, president of Marotta Wealth Management, the White House, the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve have been cooking the books to hide the dismal state of the US economy. After re-crunching the official numbers and adjusting for statistical sleights of hand, Marotta has concluded the actual actual inflation rate is 4.5 percent rather than the officially claimed 1.24 per cent; the actual unemployment rate is a shocking 37.2 per cent; and the "Misery Index" - found by adding the official unemployment rate to the official inflation rate - is over 14, rather than the 7.54 p ...
Robert Kuttner writes 5 Ways Wall Street Continues to Screw Up the Economy for the Rest of Us and How to Fix It: The shocking thing about the financial collapse of 2008 is not that Wall Street excesses pushed us into the worst economy crisis since the Depression. It's that the same financial system has been propped back up and that elites are getting richer than ever, while the effects of that collapse are continuing to sandbag the rest of the economy. Oh, and most of this aftermath happened while a Democrat was in the White House. Consider: • The biggest banks are bigger and more concentrated than ever. • Subprime (subprime!) is making a comeback with interest rates of 8 to 13 percent. • Despite Michael Lewis's devastating expose of how high speed trading is nothing but a technological scam that allows insiders to profit at the expense of small investors, regulators are not moving to abolish it. • The usual suspects are declaring the housing crisis over, even though default and foreclosure rate . ...

Anyone who's really been paying attention knows the truth about the economy Forget the cheerleading from the White House. Nevermind the latest job numbers. Look at your wallets. Despite the persistent happy talk about a recovery, and the hundreds of charts that come along with it, the US economy is not getting better – it may actually be getting worse. There are millions of Americans who hoped 2014 would be the year their financial lives would improve. After the struggle of a stagnant country since 2009, economic forecasts predicted that a real recovery was coming — that this this would be the year for a well-paying new job, a house, the year those Americans would pay off student loans or reduce their credit-card debt. But nothing can really improve for us individually until everything improves for all ...

The Sun is Finally Setting on the Bankrupt British Empire The continued existence of sovereign nations around the planet demands, that we put an end to the British Empire once and for all, and move immediately, to impeach the Wall Street puppet Barack Obama from the White House, for working on behalf of the genocidal policy of the Queen and the City of London. The entire system of bailouts, quantitative easing, and outright thievery is unable to continue, and it is coming down, as economist Lyndon LaRouche warns, like an elevator at the 70th floor with the cables cut. They have only two options left on the table: trigger the global bail-in, or blow up the world in thermonuclear war. All sane American leaders have a moral responsibility, to preempt this crisis by intervening with real solutions. Under Title II of Obama’s Dodd-Frank Act, it is legal for the 27 banks deemed “Too Big To Fail” to seize your deposits outright. This has already happened on a minor scale, with nations like Cyprus and Greece ...

Tech News: President Obama May Ditch His BlackBerry For An Android Phone. President Obama has long complained that his job doesn't permit the luxury of carrying an iPhone. Prior to his election, Obama owned a personal BlackBerry that was replaced with a custom, highly-secure model once he reached office. But it seems Obama may have the chance to switch to Android before his term concludes. According to The Wall Street Journal, the White House is currently testing smartphones from Samsung and LG for internal, official use. The White House Communications Agency — which directly oversees Obama's communications — is taking part in the effort along with an "internal technology team." These tests are still in the early phase, according to the Journal's source, so Obama won't be able to drop his longtime phone for "months." But seeing as Obama doesn't leave office until 2017, there's a chance BlackBerry may lose its most famous customer before he departs the White House. The US government was for years one o ...
Don't drink the Kool-Aid; this isn't nursery school... From Sam Youngman/Lexington-Herald Leader -- FRANKFORT — The Kentucky Senate passed a bill Tuesday that would make clear U.S. Sen. Rand Paul may run for two federal offices at once. Household political names like Lyndon Johnson, Joe Lieberman, Joe Biden and Paul Ryan were bandied about during a brief debate, the heart of which is whether Paul can run for president and for re-election to his Senate seat on the same Kentucky ballot in 2016. Kentucky's junior senator has said he is considering a run for the White House, but that he will definitely run for his Senate seat the same year, putting him at odds with a state law banning the same candidate from appearing on a ballot twice. Ladies and Gentlemen, Let's be serious; Rand is already running for president in 2016. This legislation in McConnell's home state is the Progressive RINO Establishment at work; whispers in the dark, money being made available, guarantees given and promises returned. Rand bel ...
KUALA LUMPUR: The needle-in-a-haystack hunt for a missing Malaysian airliner spread to the vast Indian Ocean Friday after the White House cited “new information” that it might have flown for hours after vanishing nearly seven days ago. Multiple US media reports, citing American officials, said the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777’s communication system continued to “ping” a satellite for a number of hours after it disappeared off radar with 239 people aboard, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. “It’s my understanding that based on some new information that’s not necessarily conclusive, but new information, an additional search area may be opened in the Indian Ocean,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. “The USS Kidd is transiting the Strait of Malacca en route to the Indian Ocean,” a US Navy official told AFP, referring to a guided-missile destroyer initially deployed to the Gulf of Thailand on the other side of Malaysia’s coast. It was the latest in a series of tantalisi ...
Yesterday, amid much hoopla, House Republicans passed a bill giving Congress the right to sue the White House over its alleged failure to enforce federal laws. They pointed to the President's decisions to delay or otherwise change the Affordable Care Act and also delay deportation of undocumented immigrants who came to America as children. The bill is mostly for show (it won't make it through the Senate) but still it's an odd move -- given that House Republicans haven't appropriated enough money to enforce laws enacted to restrain Wall Street (the SEC Act, Dodd-Frank, etc.) or protect worker safety or consumers, and have slashed the enforcement budgets of the Environmental Protection Agency and the IRS. Law enforcement requires, first and foremost, the resources to enforce the law. Do I detect a bit of hypocrisy here?
Secret Societies Control the World If you were really a member of the global élite, you'd know this already: the world is ruled by a powerful, secretive few. Many of the rest of us peons have heard that in 2004 both candidates for the White House were members of Yale University's secretive Skull and Bones society, many of whose members have risen to powerful positions. But Skull and Bones is small potatoes compared with the mysterious cabals that occupy virtually every seat of power, from the corridors of government to the boardrooms of Wall Street. Take the Illuminati, a sect said to have originated in 18th century Germany and which is allegedly responsible for the pyramid-and-eye symbol adorning the $1 bill: they intend to foment world wars to strengthen the argument for the creation of a worldwide government (which would, of course, be Satanic in nature). Or consider the Freemasons, who tout their group as the "oldest and largest worldwide fraternity" and boast alumni like George Washington. Some thin ...
Read this one! "WASHINGTON - September 25, 2008 - -- A Republican rebellion stalled government efforts Thursday to avoid economic meltdown, a chaotic turnaround that disrupted the choreography of am extraordinary White House meeting meant to show joint resolve from the president, the political parties and the presidential candidates. After six days of intensive talks on the $700 billion financial industry bailout proposed by the Bush administration, with Wall Street tottering and presidential politics intruding six weeks before the election, there was more confusion than clarity. An apparent breakthrough was announced with fanfare at midday by key members of Congress from both parties - but not top leaders. Wall Street cautiously showed its pleasure, with the Dow Jones Industrials closing 196 points higher. But the good news and the market close were followed by a rash of less-positive developments.

President Obama will visit Saudi Arabia next month amid reports of a strained American-Saudi relationship over Iran and Syria. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced that Obama would meet with Saudi King Abdullah in late March, calling it "part of regular consultations" between the two countries. "The president looks forward to discussing with King Abdullah the enduring and strategic ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia as well as ongoing cooperation to advance a range of common interests related to Gulf and regional security, peace in the Middle East, countering violent extremism, and other issues of prosperity and security," Carney said. The Saudi stop will be added to a late March trip that includes the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Vatican City. Obama and King Abdullah also met in 2009 and 2010. The Wall Street Journal, citing Arab officials who have been briefed on the trip's preparations, said the meeting with King Abdullah is part of an effort to ease tensions: "Relations bet ...
“Market moralities and mentalities-- fueled by economic imperatives to make a profit at nearly any cost-- yield unprecedented levels of loneliness, isolation, and sadness. And our public life lies in shambles, shot through with icy cynicism and paralyzing pessimism. To put it bluntly, beneath the record-breaking stock markets on Wall Street and bipartisan budget-balancing deals in the White House lurk ominous clouds of despair across this nation.” ― Cornel West

Farm Bill Conference Report Passes House Posted By Keith Good On January 30, 2014 David Rogers reported yesterday at Politico that, “Given up for dead just months ago, a new five-year farm bill easily cleared the House Wednesday morning, raising hopes that Congress can send it to President Barack Obama next week. “The strength of the House’s 251-166 vote makes this easier, and it’s now expected that when the bill papers arrive in the Senate Thursday, cloture will be filed promptly, setting up a pivotal roll call vote Monday. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) has said she wants to finish no later than next Wednesday, and aides in both parties said this was certainly doable. “Filling hundreds of pages, the giant measure combines a landmark rewrite of commodity programs with bipartisan reforms and savings from food stamps. It caps years of struggle spanning two Congresses, a political saga largely ignored by the national media and White House but one that fractured t ...
The Chris Christie story is becoming clearer and clearer. I don’t mean the George Washington Bridge story, though thanks to people like Steve Kornacki and his MSNBC associates, that’s becoming clear as well. I mean the story behind the story. Who’s sabotaging Chris Christie to force him out of office and off the national stage? And who’s supporting him in his bid for the power of the presidency? About the latter — who’s supporting Christie’s White House ambitions — we have the invaluable Chris Hedges. Your bottom line — every mean SOB billionaire, from Wall Street to the Koch Bros, wants Christie in office. And every element of the “security and surveillance apparatus” — the NSA, the Pentagon, presumably the CIA- and FBI-aligned forces as well — also want him in power, at least as Hedges sees it. ... I won’t quote too much more of the article — but you can see I think it’s a must-read. I will give you a list, however, gleaned from the article. These people are named by Hedg ...
Secretary Gates tells all in his memoirs - blasting Obama & Biden. Read these excerpts on Obama's treatment of the military - courtesy of the Wall Street Journal. He says Obama was "deeply suspicious" of his senior military officers. Most of my conflicts with the Obama administration during the first two years weren't over policy initiatives from the White House but rather the NSS's micromanagement and operational meddling, which I routinely resisted. For an NSS staff member to call a four-star combatant commander or field commander would have been unthinkable when I worked at the White House—and probably cause for dismissal. It became routine under Obama. I directed commanders to refer such calls to my office. The controlling nature of the Obama White House, and its determination to take credit for every good thing that happened while giving none to the career folks in the trenches who had actually done the work, offended Secretary Clinton as much as it did me. The relationship between senior military ...
OBAMA REPEALS OBAMACARE This is long, but it's the most positive and realistic analysis I've read! If you're serious, you'll read it, too, and pass it on! The Wall Street Journal "It seems Nancy Pelosi was wrong when she said "we have to pass" ObamaCare to "find out what's in it." No one may ever know because the White House keeps treating the Affordable Care Act's text as a mere suggestion subject to day-to-day revision. Its latest political retrofit is the most brazen: President Obama is partly suspending the individual mandate. The White House argued at the Supreme Court that the insurance-purchase mandate was not only constitutional but essential to the law's success, while refusing Republican demands to delay or repeal it. But late on Thursday, with only four days to go before the December enrollment deadline, the Health and Human Services Department decreed that millions of Americans are suddenly exempt. Individuals whose health plans were canceled will now automatically qualify for a "hardship exe ...
Wall Street Has a Big Fat Crush on Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton's multiple recent events on Wall Street have helped whip the financial sector into a lather, according to Politico, because the industry thinks it's a sign they may get an ally back in the White House. It's actually a sign that Hillary wants their money. Among its investments with the highest return, Wall Street apparently spends a lot on public relations. In the past month, Politico has run several items on what financiers are thinking as 2016 looms (only 1,000 days away!). In mid-November, it was about how Wall Street is excited about Jeb Bush. The day prior, it was Clinton. "[P]rivately they yearn for Clinton to get the nomination much in the way many Republican financiers want to see New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — or someone like him — lock down the GOP nomination," Politico's Ben White and Maggie Haberman wrote then. On Thursday, White and Haberman report this: "'Wall Street folks are so happy about [having Clinton run] that the ...
US-President Barrack Obama is a long time protégé of Henry Kissinger, who was a key agent of the Rockefellers. Like Wilson, Obama appeared out of political nowhere, was rocketed into the Presidency, and proved his loyalty in office. This loyalty involved promptly turning the White House over to central-banker agents from Wall Street – Timothy Geithner and his buddies. They make the policy; Obama makes the speeches.

U.S. to Stick With Combined NSA, Cyber Command Posts Wall Street Journal (12/13/13) Gorman, Siobhan The U.S. government has elected to retain a system in which the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Pentagon's Cyber Command are controlled by the same office, White House officials announced Dec. 13. There had been some speculation that the job might be split into two positions as part of a presidential review of U.S. surveillance practices. Insiders say that draft recommendations made by the panel in charge of that review do call for the split. It appears that the administration will not be abiding by that recommendation because, as National Security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden maintains, having one person in charge of NSA and the Cyber Command "is the most effective approach." Supporters of the decision also say that it will avoid duplicating expensive cybersecurity measures between NSA and the Cyber Command.

These two nations have been at loggerheads for more than half a century. I’m looking at the Obama-Castro handshake from every angle…….. sorry peoplezz but in relation to the Obama deception today, he couldn’t even look Raul Castro in the eye. There are too many who claim solidarity with Nelson Mandela struggle for freedom, but do not endure or practise what they preach. Mainstream media will paint the illusion tonight of President Obama being the next heir to Nelson Mandela / Martin Luther King’s legacy of anti-colonialism. Yet if Obama had a theme at all he’s a puppet for the White House, Hollywood, Wall Street, and the Zionists.
via Nancy: Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here's her scorecard:   Admitted Lies   • Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.) • Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.) • She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.) • She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn't cover the market back then.)   Whoppers She Won't Confess To   • She didn't know about the FALN pardons. • She didn't know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted. • Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error. • She didn't know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so. • She didn't know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had. • She opposed NAFTA at ...
NATIONAL JOURNAL By George Condon. Just 65 miles from the White House, thousands will gather Tuesday at the battlefield where 150 years ago the sacrifice and bloodshed and deaths of warring Americans were immortalized by the words of President Abraham Lincoln. Fifty-one thousand casualties were counted when the fighting ceased in 1863, including 8,000 deaths, a toll that Lincoln, in his Gettysburg Address, pledged the nation "can never forget." But among the thousands in attendance will not be President Obama. Citing scheduling problems, the White House said he is staying in Washington…. In his place, he has dispatched little-known Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to the ceremonies. . . Obama, unlike his predecessors, stuck to his decision not to go to such an anniversary commemoration. His decision is doubly surprising because he has so often tied himself to his fellow Illinoisan Lincoln. Obama announced his candidacy in 2007 near Lincoln's law office in Springfield, Ill. Both in 2009 and 2013, . ...
Wall Street Journal columnist and speechwriter for former Pres. Reagan, Peggy Noonan, reported that she heard senators discussing Obama’s nickname among White House staffers. According to Noonan, Obama’s staff calls him “Obam-me,” because he’s so self-absorbed.

Seven Signs America Has Regressed Back to the 19th Century are seven signs the United States of America has returned to the 19th century. 1. Wall Street can “send your man around to see my man” again. Shocked by newly elected President Teddy Roosevelt’s moves against Wall Street, J. P. Morgan went to the White House. “If we have done anything wrong,” said Morgan, “send your man to my man and they can fix it up.” “That can’t be done,” said Roosevelt. “We don’t want to fix it up,” his Attorney General added, “we want to stop it.” The year was 1902, and 19th-century privilege was over for Wall Street. Now it’s back, and so are the “men”—and as the recent foot-dragging over female Fed chair candidate Janet Yellen highlights, they almost always are men. The chief architects of deregulation in the 1990s included Sen. Phil Gramm, President Bill Clinton and Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Larry Summers. That deregulation cost millions of Americans their jobs and millio ...
LaRouche: Behind The Shutdown & Debt Ceiling Swindle Wall St. Orders Obama To Kill Glass-Steagall Wall Street had demanded that President Barack Obama stop the reinstatement of Glass Steagall at all costs and instead move ahead with more bailouts and bail-in looting of the American People to preserve their thoroughly bankrupt system. The Wall Street policy means an acceleration of crippling hyperinflation, devastating austerity and, ultimately, mass murder of the nation's most vulnerable citizens. Several highly qualified Washington sources have confirmed that this was the ultimatum delivered by the Wall Street delegation that met privately with Obama on Wednesday afternoon Oct. 2 at the White House. The delegation was organized by the Financial Services Forum, a coalition of the nation's 19 biggest banks and insurance companies, and included Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs; Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America; Michael Corbat, CEO of Citibank; and Anshu Jain, C ...
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan warned President Obama of the economic consequences if gridlock continues in Washington. WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) More than a dozen Wall Street bank chiefs warned President Obama at the White House that the financial system would suffer if the shutdown and debt limit aren't resolved. "We shouldn't use the threat of causing the U.S. to fail on its obligations to repay its debt as a cudgel," said Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs (GS, Fortune 500) after the meeting. Congress has been unable to come to a deal to fund the federal government, which shut down Tuesday. Even more pressing to bank chiefs and investors, Congress has until Oct. 17 before the Treasury exceeds its borrowing capacity, which means the U.S. will no longer be able to pay all its bills in full. On the second day of the federal shutdown, Blankfein and other bank CEOs said they told the president they agree the long-term consequences of a shutdown would grow "extremely adve ...
By, Paul Joseph Watson Ben Rhodes, the White House National Security advisor behind the claim that President Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons in Syria, is a fiction writer with zero educational background in government, diplomacy or National Security who also played a key role in covering up the truth behind the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. Yesterday, Rhodes announced that the White House had “high confidence” that the Syrian Army had used chemical weapons, providing no evidence, and that the Obama administration would now take steps to arm FSA rebels, who as has been widely documented are being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists who killed U.S. troops in Iraq. The Wall Street Journal also reports that a no fly zone is being prepared that would embroil the United States in yet another war. 35-year-old Rhodes has been a speechwriter for Obama since 2007 and now enjoys the role of deputy National Security adviser for strategic communication. He created the infamous term “kinetic military acti ...
There are three things congressional Republicans should do now to win the battle with President Obama over the continuing resolution. They are good for the country and popular with the people. 1. What’s Good for Big Business Is Good For The American People Demand that the individual mandate be postponed for a year, just as President Obama did—again, illegally—with the business mandate. Why should Big Business get a stay of execution from this dreadful legislation and not the American People? Make this another non-negotiable demand. A postponement would be immensely popular and would be a huge setback to ObamaCare. 2. Don’t Tamper With Medicare! Demand that no money from Medicare be diverted to financing ObamaCare. Be the champions of protecting the integrity of Medicare. Let’s enjoy the spectacle of Harry Reid and the White House opposing this. This demand will also be popular with defunding-minded Republicans. 3. Eat Your Own Cooking Under ObamaCare Congress and its staff are supposed to bu ...
On this day in the American presidency, Sept. 25: • 1919, President Woodrow Wilson collapsed after a speech in Pueblo, Colo., during a national speaking tour in support of the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY'). • 2008, Republican John Mccain and Democrat Barack Obama sat down with President George W. Bush at the White House to discuss a multibillion-dollar Wall Street bailout plan, but the session, which also included top congressional leaders, devolved into what the McCain campaign described afterward as a "contentious shouting match." • 2008, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin defended her remark that the close proximity of Russia to her home state of Alaska gave her Foreign Policy experience, explaining in a CBS interview that "we have trade missions back and forth." Palin's remark was famously lampooned by Tina Fey as "and I can see Russia from my house." • 2012, President Barack Obama, speaking to the U.N. General Assembly, pledged U.S. support for Syrians trying to oust President ...
OBAMA ON THE ROPES Groundswell Is Growing For Glass-Steagall Passage by Nancy Spannaus Sept. 17—Nine months into his second term, President Barack Obama is ripe for impeachment, and he and his closest coterie know it. He is being besieged by bipartisan opposition to his violations of the Constitution on surveillance, and to his threat of going to war in Syria in violation of international and Constitutional law. He faces a huge revolt in Congress over his coverup of the truth about the Benghazi 9/11 murders, and near-universal disgust over his economic policies—from plummeting living standards to Obamacare—in the population at large. This is the context for Obama's latest retreat—his decision to back off from nominating Wall Street toady Larry Summers as the successor to Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve. Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley had already informed the White House that at least five Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee would oppose Summers, according to a report in the HuffPos ...

Along with exposing widespread international surveillance, Edward Snowden has revealed how exactly the US is financing its military ambitions, according to Max Keiser, who says: "What's interesting is that Edward Snowden worked for Booz Allen. Booz Allen allegedly along with a few other companies are the masterminds behind LIBOR market rigging, energy market rigging, FOREX market rigging. And this is really the fuel that keeps the American military empire going, because the American economy, itself cannot support its military ambitions, so they've resorted to market manipulation and the kind of intelligence that Edward Snowden is able to aggregate is key to manipulating markets in ways that make Booz Allen, allegedly, the channel for billions and billions of dollars into America's military campaigns. "And this is really about money, markets and manipulations. It's not about security. It's not to do with anything that the White House says. Remember, the White House is a puppet of Wall Street, Booz Allen, t ...

On this day in 1979, President Jimmy Carter put solar panels on the White House roof. The panels generated enough power to provide the entire White House with hot water until 1986, when Ronald Reagan had them removed and stored in Virginia.     If those 32 solar panels had remained there up to now, the White House would've had free hot water for about 30 years. How much money would you save if you didn't pay to heat the water in your home for 30 years? What if you didn't have to pay for the electricity in your home at all? According to the U.S Energy Information Administration, the U.S residential sector spent $14,869.04723 million in June of 2012. If I thought Wall Street was worth the paper it's printed on, I'd suggest buying stock in the blossoming solar market, but instead I'll lead a horse to water and just mention that you can put solar panels on your own home or business. *** if you're crafty, you might be able to make yourself some panels from directions online and strap them to whatever you .. ...
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE AARP . . . A TRAITOR TO ALL SENIORS! During the first debate, President Obama touted the support of AARP for ObamaCare several times, clearly tying them together. Further proof that they were working in concert can be found in recently released emails between the White House and AARP operatives. As the emails show, AARP threw their tremendous power behind the legislation despite the fact they were getting calls overwhelmingly against it. In fact, on September 20, 2012, Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal wrote: "Thanks to just-released emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that AARP worked through 2009-2010 as an extension of a Democratic White House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know that despite AARP's awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill, the 'nonpartisan membership organization' chose to serve the president's ag ...
Ever since the Obama administration ran aground on a series of scandals, Republicans have been trying hard to go from zero to Watergate. No matter how hard they stomp on the accelerator, the car won't go. On the left, there is a similar desire to go from zero to McCarthy. The main target: Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who has been investigating the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and the Internal Revenue Service targeting conservative groups. On Sunday, Issa called White House spokesman Jay Carney a "paid liar," in keeping with the Republican congressman’s general temperament, which is to accuse first and find the facts later. Democrats are trying to promote the idea that Republicans are overplaying their hand with these controversies. Several times, analysts have raised the specter of the 1990s House Republicans who took their party over the cliff with mad passion in the investigations of Bill Clinton. Republicans have not overplaye ...
My apologies for my unreadable long sentences and choppy parenthetical inserts - - - NOTE - - - 20130515 - - - In contrast to Iceland's focus on the general health and welfare of its entire population and not just on its 1% Iceland came up with rather obvious solutions that worked. Their economically and morally pragmatic decisions cured their economy and put nearly everybody back to work in good family wage jobs with full health, education, welfare and retirement benefits in jobs that created or improved their infrastructure and country. In contrast the US could not have done worse for the general populace or more for their wealthy elite of the 1%. Sooner or later this spells doom for the US and inevitably catastrophic disaster(s) even worse than before. The US govt (White House and Congress), bought and paid for by the deadly parasite that is Wall Street's MALIGNANT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, continues to expand deregulation* and Obama has made the Too Big To Fail (TBTF) crooked banks two or three times larg . ...
The biggest Wall Street banks are now far bigger than they were when we bailed them out, yet they've successfully whittled back the Dodd-Frank fiinancial reform act and continue to make and cover up wildly risky bets (e.g, JP Morgan Chase's $6 billion "London Whale" loss last year). Now, facing a bipartisan move in the Senate (led by David Vitter, R-La and Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio) to sharply increase the amount of capital they have to hold, which the Federal Reserve is endorsing, the banks are telling the White House and members of Congress they’ll lend out less money if such a law were enacted. In other words: if they can't continue to dominate and terrorize the economy, they’ll smother it. Haven't we had enough? It is time to use the nation’s antitrust laws to break up the biggest Wall Street banks, just like antitrust was used a century ago to break up the oil companies and railroads. And also to resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act, put into effect after the Great Crash of 1929, to separate commercial ...
Top economist Jeffrey Sachs says Wall Street is full of 'crooks' and hasn't changed since the financial crash April 29, 2013, The Independent (One of the UK's leading newspapers) of the world's most respected economists has said Wall St is full of "crooks" and hasn't reformed its "pathological" culture since the financial crash. Professor Jeffrey Sachs told a high-powered audience at the Philadelphia Federal Reserve earlier this month that the lack of reform was down to “a docile president, a docile White House and a docile regulatory system that absolutely can’t find its voice.” Sachs, from Columbia University, has twice been named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, and is an adviser to the World Bank and IMF. “What has been revealed, in my view, is prima facie criminal behavior,” he said. “It’s financial fraud on a very large extent. There’s also a tremendous amount of Insider Trading. We have a corrupt politics to the core, I am afraid to say, and . . . b ...
Not just any organization AIPAC pro-Israel Lobby, as written by John Mearsheimer, Professor of Political Science of the University of Chicago, and Stephen Walt, Professor of International Relations of the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, in a book entitled The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. Their influence is very wide and in various sectors, including politics, economics, and the media. The people they are everywhere: the White House, Capitol Hill, the department, to the Wall Street. This Zionist lobby organization advocates moving the Democrats and Republicans. They formed a PAC (Political Action Committee) and a super PAC to raise money. They then bribed the senators and members of Congress to be submissive and willing to defend every policy in favor of Israel.
: Pete Peterson’s “Fix the Debt” Astroturf Supergroup Detailed in New Online Resource at PetersonPyramid.org : "Madison, WI -- One of the most hypocritical corporate PR campaigns in decades is advancing inside the beltway, attempting to convince the White House, Congress, and the American People that another cataclysmic economic crisis is around the corner that will destroy our economy unless urgent action is taken.

Interesting information about the sequester per Speaker Boehner's press office (Sources NYTimes, WSJ, Bob Woodward, and others): You’re going to see President Obama at campaign-style rallies again this week, demanding higher taxes and blaming Republicans for his ‘sequester’ mess. Here’s what he won’t be telling you: This is President Obama’s sequester. “The idea for sequestration did come from the White House, as news accounts made clear at the time,” reports the New York Times. As Speaker Boehner wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “it is a product of the president's own failed leadership.” Republicans passed a bill with smarter spending cuts (twice), but the president’s Senate hasn’t passed it (or any other replacement bill). Senate Democrats haven’t passed a budget in four years either. The House voted to replace the president’s sequester in May 2012 and again last December. Each bill targeted waste and fraud, and would help put us on a path to balance the budget in 10 years. ...
Presidents' Day... It's not the thought of my Loyalist, Federalist and Whig ancestors that intimidates me, but I do shudder when I imagine how my present-day Republican relatives and friends would react to my thinking that the Obamas are the best White House occupants since the Roosevelts (the TEDDY Roosevelts, that is...a family with boys so wild they had to put bars on the windows... daughter Alice was DC's most notorious bachelorette... and TR merely created the National Parks and the Panama Canal, stood up against Wall Street, wrote more books than Kipling and Dickens combined, and, after being the youngest U.S. president in history, hunted big game in Africa and rafted the Amazon ... "BULLY!") Oh, this was meant to be about the Obamas. OK... I love Michelle's new mid-life-crisis bangs ("because they won't let me get a sports car")...the mother-in-law on the third floor...the daughters who seem so normal...and Barak is poised for truly historic accomplishments in his second term.

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Obama May Cut Social Security: The White House said Monday it remains willing to consider trimming the growth of Social Security benefits as part of a broader deficit-cutting deal. “I am not confident that the president will protect Social Security,” Sen. Sanders warned in Congressional Quarterly. “Wall Street billionaires and other supporters claim that changing the consumer price index is a ‘minor tweak.’ Tell that to the millions of senior citizens trying to survive on just $14,000 a year whose Social Security benefits would be cut overall by $112 billion during the next decade,” Sanders wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday by The Hill. Global Warming: Sen. Sanders soon will introduce "the boldest piece of legislation" to move the nation's energy systems away from fossil fuels. The bill would combat climate change through a fee on polluters, WCAX-TV reported. "There will be a price on carbon. There will be massive investments in sustainable ener ...
WORLD NEWS – usa - BAROFSKY DEMANDS "KILL THE GEITHNER DOCTRINE," AND EXPOSES HOLDER AS Wall StREETS'S MAIN PROTECTOR FOR OBAMA February 9, 2013 • 1:29PM Tim Geithner may be leaving, but the London-Wall Street criminals and their White House protection haven't left, and won't leave without Glass-Steagall, and Lyndon LaRouche's three-point program. An article in the Financial Times of Feb. 7 by Neil Barofsky, former special inspector-general of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), reveals that "too big to jail" is still alive and well, despite Geithner's exit. But even more important, the article points to the evidence that Obama's protector of the Wall Street and London criminals is actually Attorney General Eric Holder. Protecting Wall Street, covering up for Fast & Furious gun-running, contempt of Congress, and giving cover for Obama's drone murders are the latest list of Holder's crimes. In Barofsky's Feb. 7 commentary in the Financial Times, he goes after the "Geithner doctrine." He says th . ...

Obama picks former prosecutor to head SEC JULIE PACE and MARCY GORDON - Today Mary Joe White speaks as President Barack Obama listens in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, after he announced that he will nominate White to lead the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), and re-nominate Richard Cordray to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a role that he has held for the last year under a recess appointment. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama sent his strongest signal yet Thursday that he wants the government to get tougher with Wall Street, appointing a former prosecutor to head the Securities and Exchange Commission for the first time in the agency's 79-year history. Mary Jo White, former U.S. attorney in Manhattan, has an extensive record of prosecuting white-collar crime, won convictions in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1998 terrorist attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa, and put crime boss John . ...
Fred Barnes: Obama's Inaugural Intentions The president reached out to Democratic interest groups. Republicans? Not so much. By Fred Barnes \ Wall Street | January 21, 2013 President Obama wants more government. In his second inaugural address, he masked the message with phrases like "collective action" and doing "things together." But these were stand-ins—euphemisms, really—for a bigger and more ambitious federal government. That's the unmistakable goal of his second term, and his inaugural address was devoted to his determination to achieve it. Mr. Obama paid lip service to reducing "the size of our deficit." This was followed by a crucial "but" as he went on to defend a series of programs he is unwilling to cut, including Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. "These things do not sap our initiative," he declared. "They strengthen us." In effect, Mr. Obama endorsed the entire liberal agenda as the guiding star of his next four years in the White House. He reached out to various interest groups in ...
Little Giant Ladders
Call it “prosecutorial discretion.” Call it “selective deportation.” Call it whatever you want. When the president refuses to enforce immigration law and allows illegal aliens to enjoy many of the benefits of citizenship or legal residence, that’s amnesty. Here’s the truly scary part: this was only the beginning. A recent Associated Press article entitled, “Election Over, Administration Unleashes New Rules” lays bare Obama’s plans to govern by executive fiat in his second term: For months, federal agencies and the White House have sidetracked dozens of major regulations that cover everything from power plant pollution to workplace safety to a crackdown on Wall Street. The rules had been largely put on hold during the presidential campaign as the White House sought to quiet Republican charges that President Barack Obama was an overzealous regulator who is killing U.S. jobs. But since the election, the Obama administration has quietly reopened the regulations pipeline. In other words, don ...
Aloha. Former D.E.A. undercover agent and author of "The Infiltrator" Robert Mazur said on Coast to Coast am talk radio on January 7, 2013 that the White House, the Administration, the State Department and the Department of Justice consistently protect the largest drug cartel money launderers in favor of cracking-down on users and small dealers of marijuana and other drugs. He said that it's become accepted policy to allow the largest drug dealers in the world and their bankster enablers to continue with business as usual and only pay a small percentage fine if they ever get caught, which they rarely do. Virtually zero arrests of the largest money launderers, or their C.I.A. and Wall Street connected assets disturb the daily flow of mega-cash and drugs around the globe, most of it coming into the U.S.A. All this mega-crime and violence proceeds with the full knowledge and permission of the U.S. government, and with most of the U.S. media enabling all of the above. President Obama is living proof - in h .. ...
Jack Lew: A Bronx Jew moves to Wall Street and the White House
Alexander Hamilton was born on January 11th 1757 in Nevis British West Indies. He immigrated to the US in 1772. He attended Kings College which is now Columbia University and has a statue of him on the grounds. He founded the Federalist Party, the Bank of New York and was a confidant of George Washington. He became the first Secretary of Treasury and selected the spot for the Treasury Building causing a break between the White House and the Capitol Building. There is a statue of him in front of the Treasury Building. He left his Hamilton Grange home in Hamilton Heights to duel Aaron Burr on July 11th 1804 in Weehawken NJ and died the next day in Greenwich Village at age 47. He is buried at Trinity Church Cemetery on Wall Street. His wife outlived him 50 years and is buried beside him. Hamilton is one of the few men not to be president whose face is on money - the $10 bill.
In 1934 General Smedley D. Butler went public after he was approached by Wall Street and offered up to 300 million dollars to lead an army of 500,00 veterans equipped with munitions from Remington Arms Company to Washington D.C., in order to overthrow the U.S. Government by force. The plot was investigated by the McCormack-Dickstein committee, which found General Butler to be telling the truth.(*) During his 35 years of service in the Marine Corps, General Butler received the Congressional Medal of Honor twice. The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor against an enemy force, which can be given to an individual serving in the Armed Forces of the United States. Jules Archer's book, The Plot to Seize the White House, was written with the cooperation of senators, reporters, former Speaker of the House of Representatives John W. McCormack, former editors of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Philadelphia Record, and the immediate family of General Smedley Butler who provided military records, scrapboo ...
Tim Carney: How corporate tax credits got in the 'cliff' deal Campaign CHICAGO - JANUARY 22: A General Electric Co. (GE) logo is displayed on the door of one of the company's microwave ovens being offered for sale at a Sears store January 22, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. Today GE posted a 19% slump in fourth-quarter earnings, but still beat Wall Street expectations. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images) The "fiscal cliff" legislation passed this week included $76 billion in special-interest tax credits for the likes of General Electric, Hollywood and even Captain Morgan. But these subsidies weren't the fruit of eleventh-hour lobbying conducted on the cliff's edge -- they were crafted back in August in a Senate committee, and they sat dormant until the White House reportedly insisted on them this week. The Family and Business Tax Cut Certainty Act of 2012, which passed through the Senate Finance Committee in August, was copied and pasted into the fiscal cliff legislation, yielding a victory for biotech compani ...
“Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery of party, faction, and division of society.” --John Adams So much for: "A balanced approach!" "I didn't run for office to help out a bunch of fat cat bankers running Wall Street," Obama said in December 2009. Obama Vows More Tax Increases by Keith Koffler on January 2, 2013, 8:58 am President Obama this morning pocketed the Republican concessions on tax hikes included in the Fiscal Cliff deal and promised that it was only the beginning of new taxation to be assessed on the American People. Obama, who appeared in the White House briefing room Tuesday night to hail the deal, made clear to Republicans that he will continue to seek a “balanced” approach to deficit reduction – White House code for “balancing” spending cuts with raising taxes. Meanwhile, spending on Obama-blessed programs will continue to rise, he asserted: "We can’t simply cut our way to prosperity. Cutting spending has to go hand-in-hand with further refo ...
John Halle says: "It turned out that that very morning, the SEIU had endorsed the re-election of a candidate who will receive a billion dollars in campaign contributions, much of this from Wall Street. A day after, SEIU would unveil its “Occupy Congress” initiative” exposed as a transparent attempt at co-optation by Glenn Greenwald, albeit one which has taken in many insufficiently skeptical leftists assuming that it is associated with OWS. This week’s Occupy the Capital events in Washington D.C. is the latest and most aggressive attempt to by what is left of the labor movement to restore its sagging credibility by rebranding itself in the colors of OWS." This is all true, but, in reality, Occupy Congress wound up marching on the White House to protest Obama. The Democrats were angry enough about it to put up a hit piece on The Daily Kos, where they accused people of threatening the President by chanting "Obama beware. Occupy is everywhere," along the fence of the White House. The corporate medi . ...
This tax on the financial sector has the power to raise hundreds of billions every year to provide funding for jobs to kickstart the economy and get America back on its feet. It could help save the Social Safety Net in the US and around the world. Not complicated. Just brilliant. For many months, nurses, healthcare, environmental, labor, consumer, faith-based and other community activists have rallied on Wall Street, at banks and legislative offices, and outside the White House and Treasury Department, saying it is time to tax Wall Street to help revive our economy and nation. Now it’s no longer just a movement. It’s also legislation, H.R. 6411, the Robin Hood tax, introduced in Congress by Rep. Keith Ellison, one of the most progressive voices in Washington.
I would like to thank all of those that sent me birthday sentiments. It warmed my otherwise cold heart. Even you Steve and Alan. "One" of the wonderful gifts my beloved wife gave me last night was to take me to Shawnee to see "Lincoln". Its hard to believe that a fight over the 13th amendment to the constitution could be so filled with drama. I recommend it to all thinking persons. Daniel Day-Lewis is brilliant. I did however think that Mary Tyler-Moore was a better Mary Lincoln in the TV movie. I wasn't that impressed with Tommy Lee Jones as an oscar nom either. Hal Holbrook was excellent, but the biggest surprise was a member of the brat pack. I can't remember his name but think "Wall Street" and " Less than Zero". The setting was brilliant, the White House being a dark dank place. The politacal process was as it is now. I urge all to go see it. By the way, great job Cougars... Take it and use it and win number 20!
A White House official has confirmed POLITICO’s list of CEOs scheduled to attend a meeting Wednesday with President Barack Obama on the fiscal cliff, and sent over the list of union and progressive leaders who will sit down with him Tuesday: •Mary Kay Henry, SEIU •Lee Saunders, AFSCME •Dennis Van Roekel, NEA •Rich Trumka, AFL-CIO •Neera Tanden, Center for American ProgressJohn Podesta, Center for American Progress •Bob Greenstein, Center for Budget and Policy Priorities •Laura Burton Capps, Common Purpose Project •Max Richtman, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare •Justin Ruben, MoveOn •Deepak Bhargava, Center for Community Change Funny, I don't see any Wall Street people, Business CEO's, or small business owners on the list. What does that tell you?
President Obama’s post-election offer to sit down with vanquished GOP rival Mitt Romney has spurred talk of a possible White House role for Romney, a move that could help calm jitters on Wall Street and warm the partisan chill on Capitol Hill. Romney is still licking his wounds from the devastating.
Obama, buoyed by election win, faces new battles By Matt Spetalnick and Steve Holland WASHINGTON | Wed Nov 7, 2012 7:41pm EST (Reuters) - President Barack Obama had little time to savor victory on Wednesday after voters gave him a second term in the White House where he faces urgent economic challenges, a looming fiscal showdown and a still-divided Congress able to block his every move. Despite a decisive win over Republican Mitt Romney in Tuesday's election, Obama must negotiate with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives to try to overcome the partisan gridlock that gripped Washington for much of his first term. The Democratic president's most immediate concern is the "fiscal cliff" of scheduled tax increases and spending cuts that could crush the U.S. economic recovery if it kicks in at the start of next year. The prospect of Obama and Congress struggling to agree on the issue weighed heavily on global financial markets on Wednesday and helped send Wall Street stocks into a post-election ...
I just want to explore a little presidential/economic history with anybody who cares enough to read a little. I find history fascinating. This isn't "pro" any politician or against. "Obama inherited the economy that Bush destroyed." 1st off, the dot-com bubble burst nearly the same time the travel industry nose dived after 9/11/01. Then the Enron ordeal that caused fear in those looking to invest in the Fortune 500. Those three factors plummeted Wall Street to it's 2008 crash. The dot-com burst more so than terrorism. Investors were scared to invest. Still are. This is the economy Obama inherited. More on his inheritance later. "Things were great under Clinton." Yes they were. He was merely the man in the White House while we enjoyed that dot-com internet boom from the early 90s into 2001. The sentence could just as easily read "Things were great under Bob Dole." The president does not invent new profitable technology, he only enjoys the praise for being the guy in the chair while new technology bolsters ...
What a "fun and patriotic day I had" had a layover in Washington D.C. at the Ronald Reagan Airport ~~ looked out at the Washington Monument and the Capitol Bldg and flew over the White House as well~~ more fun than the voting booth (already voted absentee) Now, I am in Manhattan only minutes away from the Statue of Liberty!! Took an awesome drive along the Hudson River and saw the bridge lit up and gorgeous. Also saw the Empire State building ~~ we got here too late to get an assignment, so will return to White Plains in the A.M. and get an assignment!! Hoping that on my day off I can see some awesome places like the Trade Center, Wall Street, Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, Times Square, etc. etc. etc. ~~meanwhile, lots of work and long days ahead!! It is a mess here in lots of places and expecting the nor east storm tomorrow!! Yipes, not ready for cold and snow or freezing rain yet!

What has really changed since Bush left the White House? Very little, argues Tariq Ali, apart from the mood music. The hopes aroused during Obama’s election campaign have rapidly receded—the honeymoon has been short. Following the financial crisis, the “reform” president bailed out Wall Street without getting anything in return. With Democratic Party leaders and representatives mired in the corrup t lobbying system, the plans for reforming the healthcare system lie wrecked on the Senate floor. Abroad, the “War On Terror” continues: torture on a daily basis in the horror chamber that is Bagram, Iraq occupied indefinitely, Israel permanently appeased, and more troops to Afghanistan and more drone attacks in Pakistan than under Bush. The fact that Obama has proved incapable of shifting the political terrain even a few inches in a reformist direction will pave the way for a Republican surge and triumph in the not too distant future. Written early in 2010 and initially published in September 2010, ...
They're tired of being called fat-cat bankers and getting saddled with the blame for the nation's economic woes. So after backing President Barack Obama in 2008, many Wall Street honchos now want to see Republican challenger Mitt Romney claim the White House.
go on America; you folks that re-elected W: top that by putting Richie Rich, the Demon Barber of Wall Street in the White House. He and his posse will hold you down and give you a REAL haircut
From my new friend~Harriette Waiters shared Sid Roth's It's Supernatural's status. 12 hours ago October 30th is the 21st anniversary of the Perfect Storm. This resulted in President George H. W. Bush's home in Maine being devastated. The correlation was that President Bush just had the Madrid Peace Conference to propose dividing the land of Israel. I would not be surprised to see a national monument or even the White House damaged and the newly opened Statue of Liberty and Wall Street devastated. YHWH will get our attention before the next election! We cannot be blessed by YHWH with a pro-abortion, anti-institution of biblical marriage and anti-Israel president and expect YHWH'S blessing. These are the three issues that cause a nation to lose its sovereignty. You must pray and you must vote! Pray YHWH will spare lives. I pray Psalm 91 for those in harm's way. If that is you, pray that also. Personalize it and pray it out loud
The Israeli Lobby owns the Congress, media, Hollywood, Wall Street, both political parties, and the White House. This kind of talk will get people fired by this lobby, as we have seen recently with White House Correspondent Helen Thomas and CNN anchor Rick Sanchez. However, many Americans are growing tired of the arrogance of the Israel Lobby and their bigoted attitudes toward anyone who challenges their influence-peddling and their ridiculous insistence that Israel must be supported because of some ancient fairy tales involving some tribes who wandered the deserts of the Middle East and saw and heard non-existent things because of sun stroke, drinking bad water, and smoking local hallucinogenic plants
As we get closer to the election and the slogans and claims become more absurd; It is good to watch a certain distinguished journalist's TV program -Mr. Bill Moyers. He focuses his attention this week on the relationship between the Federal government and Wall Street on the issue of financial reform. Just watch the FIRST 5 MINUTES and it will re-orientate election madness with the truth behind the shell game at Treasury dept, Justice Dept. and White House as it relates to financial reform This is the reason that we need good candidates and good political leaders.
I sincerely wish there was a third choice for President that had a viable chance of winning because neither of these guys impress me at all. I do think people are giving Romney more moral credit than he deserves tho, this guy was Gordon Gekko(see Wall Street) and put a lot of people OUT of work when bought and stripped companies and pocketed millions, this was by design. That bothers me more than a lot of other issues because not only did these workers lose jobs but some pensions and health benefits as well. This is not morally OK to me(I have MBA concentration accounting and 30 years in business so I know and I am familiar with all these tactics) but gets chalked up to him being a "good businessman." I know plenty of good businessmen that dont do that. Sadly, government is so large and dysfunctional now I am not sure it really matters who is in the White House if you have a split house and senate. The last 4 years proves very little gets done if thats the case. They bicker and fight while the Country cru ...
Pass this one around to your Liberal Friends YOU'RE A PASSIONATE and committed liberal. Four years ago, enthralled by Barack Obama's biography and inspired by his oratory, you voted for him with pride. You embraced his promise of hope and change. You were deeply moved by the racial progress he symbolized. But above all you voted for him because he expressed such enlightened views. You didn't just want a Democrat back in the White House, you wanted one who would bring progressive clarity to US national policy. For eight years, you'd fumed at George W. Bush's offenses against the Constitution; now at last, you believed, you were supporting a president for whom civil liberties would be an unshakable priority. A president who wouldn't be beholden to Wall Street and its rivers of cash. Who would prosecute the War On Terror without abandoning core American values or trampling basic human rights. Whose administration would function in the sunlight, a jewel of transparency, accountability, and due process. That w ...
Mitt Romney is owned by the Koch Brother, Do we really want Wall Street in the White House???
The mainstream media is refusing to cover me while they cover their corporate puppets in the White House and the Republican Party. I represent a threat to their corporate values. Remember, when Obama, or Romney or Ron Paul speak, people may agree with some of what they say. But the only reason people are hearing it, is because those candidates are backed by the Money Machine, either Wall Street billionaires, or the money of software millionaires like move on.org. So every time they open their mouths, they are remembering who owns them, who paid for what they say. They're just pitchmen for vested interests, even if you share some of those special interests. And in the mainstream media, you only hear about the candidates that the media, with their corporate hearts, wants you to hear about. So keep spreading the word. Keep sharing my links. I still have a steep and rocky uphill climb to media recognition. Once the American People hear about me, I am confident I will win by a landslide. Remember – The Tree ...
What Mitt Romney and Liar Loans Have in Common (Be Very Afraid) by Adam Levin As I watched Governor Romney in the Presidential debate Wednesday night I was reminded of a financial tactic the candidate's political supporters and financial backers on Wall Street used during the mortgage boom--the one that netted them billions of dollars while simultaneously pushing the American economy off a cliff. I'm talking about the liar loan, a line of credit based on smiling assertions without a shred of proof--the practice that helped flatten the mortgage market and gut the U.S. economy. This time around, though, the Governor was manipulating the truth not to score some jumbo re-fi deal (after all this is a man who could buy the White House outright), but to gain access to the U.S. Treasury and all the mechanisms of American fiscal and Monetary Policy. The loan he's looking for would be a four-to-eight-year instrument--one that would allow the nation's wealthiest Goldman Sachs-types to resume the looting of America t ...
Today in an emai Dr. Block, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics asked all members of the Academy to vote their conscience and assure that the progressve candidates win the November 6th election. American Academy of Pediatrice advocates adequate and equal Health Care, nutrition and shelter for all children. We live in the richest country in the world and still 20 millions children go to bed hungry every night. Millions have no health insurance and adequate shelter. Our Health Care system is not geared towards preventive care and 'best practices ". Affordable Care Act is only the first step in improving Health Care, we have a long way to go, to educate all physicians to practice evidence-based medicine. All the progress in the last four years will come to screeching halt if the wrong candidate wins the election for the White House, that is the one who likes the Wall Street and not Seasame Street.
He Returned The Executive Branch To Fiscal Responsibility After the Bush Debacle 1. Within his first week, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts, and combating waste and abuse. 2. Created the post of Chief Performance Officer, whose job it is to make operations more efficient to save the federal government money. 3. On his first full day, he froze White House salaries. 4. He appointed the first Federal Chief Information Officer to oversee federal IT spending. 5. He committed to phasing out unnecessary and outdated weapons systems. To that end, he also signed the Democratic-sponsored Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act, which attempted to put a stop to waste, fraud and abuse in the defense procurement and contracting system. 6. Through an executive order, he created the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. He Improved the Economy, Preventing a Bush Depression 7. Pushed through and signed the Democratic-sponsored American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, ...
From my friend Honey: "Robert Reich says the attacks on Romney's tenure at Bain Capital miss the larger point, one which even the White House is not prepared to acknowledge: Mitt Romney is not simply a callous vulture capitalist, he is the living embodiment of the financial catastrophe that brought this country to the edge of ruin. [T]he real issue here isn’t Bain’s betting record. It’s that Romney’s Bain is part of the same system as Jamie Dimon’s JPMorgan Chase, Jon Corzine’s MF Global and Lloyd Blankfein’s Goldman Sachs—a system that has turned much of the economy into a betting parlor that nearly imploded in 2008, destroying millions of jobs and devastating household incomes. The winners in this system are top Wall Street executives and traders, private-equity managers and hedge-fund moguls, and the losers are most of the rest of us. The thousands of job losses caused by Bain's "bad bets," while providing rich fodder for the Administration's campaign ads, are really just a microcosm of ...
So far I like this women She may have my vote If I can quote Alice Walker, 'The biggest way people give up power is by not knowing they have it to start with.' And that’s true, for the environmental movement, the student movement, the antiwar movement, health-care-as-a-human-right movement—you put us all together, we have the potential for a Tahrir Square type event, and [to] turn the White House into a Green House in November.[27] Stein became the presumptive Green Party nominee after winning two-thirds of California's delegates in June of 2012.[28] In a statement following the California election, Stein said, "Voters will not be forced to choose between two servants of Wall Street in the upcoming election. Now we know there will be a third candidate on the ballot who is a genuine champion of working people."[29] On July 1, 2012, the Jill Stein campaign reported it had received enough contributions to qualify for primary season federal matching funds, pending confirmation from the FEC. If funded, Ste ...
They want to cut taxes for high-income Americans while the Middle Class shoulders the burden. They want to let Wall Street write its own rules again, and remove the financial regulations President Obama has put in place to prevent another crash. They want to cut the budget in a radical way, decimating programs that help the Middle Class, poor children, seniors, and those in science and technology that will create the good jobs of the future. They want to turn Medicare into a risky voucher program that could actually raise costs for seniors by as much as $6,400 per year. This week, both campaigns -- Mitt Romney's and President Obama's -- face the biggest fundraising deadline yet. If we want President Obama in that White House for another four years, we can't take anything for granted, especially critical moments like this. Donate $13 or more today, and let's bring this home for President Obama and Democrats across the country: Clinton
From another Obama supporter: " Get out and vote and keep corporations out of the White House and Senate." Does anyone really believe that Obama is not Wall Street's man sitting in the Oval Office and that the U.S. Senate--- Democrats and Republicans--- are not beholden to Wall Street's interests? Come forward and explain how you think Obama is not looking out for Wall Street's interests. On just this one last issue to come forward during the last days of this campaign, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) should be the clue to anyone that Obama is a stooge for the Wall Street corporations. Obama has intentionally kept the American People in the dark on the TPP while enabling these huge corporations standing to amass huge and obscene profits to have open access and a decision-making role. Is this person just plain stupid and dumb or trying to deceive? You have to feel sorry for anyone this stupid but we should resent anyone that intentionally spreads this kind of lie.
First the Bible was taken out of schools in 1962 by men in black robs. That act took moral authority from instilling, "fear of God is the beginning of wisdom" Proverbs 9:10.Then came the Age of Aquarius, the drug culture, Woodstock, free love, rebellion, Kent State, Walter Cronkite telling the American People fighting Communism in Veitnam isn't worth the price in blood and treasure. The fall of America's dominance in scholastic achievement as a nation can be traced back to '62'. My step mother is Vietnamese, she told me what happened after the fall of Saigon and how the media block all news telling of the slaughter because Liberalism stopped the fight against the Evil Empire(s). A generation later we not only get a cheat in the White House (where are his transcripts/no one remembers him at skoo), his home town has more murders this year than Beirut and NYC. Wall Street steals our money through Clintonian cronyism (see: Franklin Raines/Jon Corzine) and Harvard students take social advancement as an entitl ...
White House hopeful Ron Paul and the American Civil Liberties Union each condemned the United States' killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who has never been charged with any crime. Al Qaeda's Anwar al-Awlaki killed in Yemen Paul, a staunch Libertarian, said in New Hampshire Friday that it's "sad" if "the American People accept this blindly and casually," adding that "nobody knows if he ever killed anybody," According to the Wall Street Journal. the Texas Republican lawmaker said United States officials "have never been specific about the crime." The ACLU said the killing was a violation of both U.S. and international law. "As we've seen today, this is a program under which American citizens far from any battlefield can be executed by their own government without judicial process, and on the basis of standards and evidence that are kept secret not just from the public but from the courts," said Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director for the ACLU. "The government's authority to use lethal force ag ...
Dear Friends --Right, Left, & Center... I sincerely like & prefer Barack Obama as President of the United States. He's got a level head & a cool hand. He knows not only the nature of the office, but has experience navigating the games of cunning Washington insiders, the media, & Wall-Street. He seems a decent man. He's a Constitutional scholar, a gentleman, & a good father. As nearly everyone readily admits, Barack Obama is a very skilled & effective speaker, even a great one -- plain speaking, good-natured & intelligent. An intellectual who shoots from the hip AND shoots hoops. A sober thinker with Black roots AND White roots AND Immigrant roots, who not only SEEMS to come from the people, but actually does. EVEN IF all that were merely an act, Barack Obama does it *** well. Certainly better than any other person I've seen stepping into the race for the White House. Who would we rather have as our Chief Executive, if not Barack Obama? Certainly not Mitt Romney . I'm starting to doubt whether he's even ...
Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has stepped down as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to become chief executive of the Financial Services Roundtable, a major Wall Street lobbying group. Pawlenty joined the Romney campaign in September 2011 after abandoning his own White House bi...
I'm tired of listening to Mr. Romney ask "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?" Let's look back exactly four years ago.September 17th, 2008. Here's the headline from the PBS News Hour for that date: GWEN IFILL: Wall Street and Washington entered uncharted territory today: the Federal Reserve's takeover of insurance giant AIG. It was the Fed's deepest move ever into the private sector in exchange for $85 billion in borrowed tax money. The Bush administration initially opposed a bailout, but today White House press secretary Dana Perino defended it. Dana Perino, White House Spokeswoman: Some of these companies were so big that to allow them to fail would have caused even greater harm and damage to the economy. So the goal has been to take action where necessary to promote stability and strength in the marketplace so that we can prevent or limit more damage to the broader economy. GWEN IFILL: Perino said decisions on other bailout requests, including for the auto industry, would be made ...
In an editorial published this week, the Wall Street Journal said Bernanke's actions could help President Obama by lifting the short-term economic mood, but could also hurt him by reminding people that the economy is such bad shape. "The irony is that, with this historic and open-ended easing, Mr. Bernanke is also tacitly admitting how lousy the Obama-Bernanke economy really is. For all the back-s'apping by the Fed and the White House about how they've saved us from a Great Depression, four years later the Fed is acknowledging that the recovery is rotten, that job creation stinks, and that their policies haven't helped the Middle Class."
Okay guys and gals. We are less than 2 months away from the election. At this point I figure most of us have in mind whom we are voting for. Many of us will vote to re-elect President Obama. Others are planning to vote for Willard Rmoney. Before you do that on November 6, consider the following. Those of us that aren't kidding ourselves realize that the major political parties have been long ago bought off by special interests in the business and Wall Street communities. The modern day Robber Barons(hopefully you remember some of your history classes). These people do NOT have our interests at heart one iota. Therefore their lackeys in the White House, The House of Representatives, The Senate and the Supreme Court(and all their little fiefdoms and sub-fiefdoms right down to state and local levels) have not our interests in mind either. Therefore I propose the following. Don't vote this year. That is to say, don't waste your vote this year. Most people will tell you that voting "3rd party" is ...

My Hope IS that America will do a good decision on November 6th and stop blaming President Obama for this economy problems. you can go to Cnn and get a copy President Bush speech of September,24 of 2008 Bush plans prime-time speech The President will speak to the public about the proposed $700 billion bailout on TV tonight to urge skeptical senators. WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush will deliver a prime-time speech Wednesday night to put pressure on Congress to pass a $700 billion plan to bail out Wall Street, the White House announced. Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned Wednesday that the current Wall Street crisis is the worst the country has faced since the end of World War II and urged Congress to take action on a proposed bailout package. But members of Congress - including members of Bush's own Republican Party - have expressed skepticism about the plan drafted by Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. Bush's speech is due to begin at 9:01 p.m. ET and last just under 15 minutes. Min ...
The iPhone 5, which Apple Inc. plans to release this week, could get credit for something Congress, the White House and Federal Reserve have struggled to do: boost the U.S. economy in a measurable way.
A vote for me is a vote against both of the twin puppets of the Corporatocracy, Romney AND Obama. A fresh wind against the oncoming black sails of fascism. I am neither GOP neither Tea Party, indeed i have nothing but contempt for both. Sadly, under the Wall Street puppet Obama and his even more appalling alternative, Romney, things will not be getting better. They are both stooges for the Big Money and the War Machine, and until we rid ourselves of the two-party gridlock, we will never accomplish anything, and instead will see the rights and lives of the working people ever more degraded. Have you seen that Allstate ad on TV where the young woman is living on Ramen soup so she can pay her insurance bills? That is not acceptable. We need to stand together for Single payer,for what is right, and for real insurance reform; and if our President and Congress are too crooked to provide it to us, we need to vote them out of office, and put representatives in our White House and Congress who work for the people ...
I'm surprised Walmart, J.P. Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs didn't take out any ad space at the RNC or DNC. They sure as heck are bankrolling (bought off) candidates. Walmart is chomping at the bit (also see Billy Boy Gates) for a piece of the public education budget and both Romney and Obama are set to deliver it with a nice red bow attached to it. Chase and Sachs couldn't be happier. They raped the country in broad daylight and got away with it. Heck, some of them ended up on government payroll. Obama's economic hatchet men, oops I mean advisors. They'll probably stay as Romney's as well. Some of them have been regulars in the White House since Clinton was in office. Then they go back to Wall Street and reap the benefits of their own deregulation policies. Now that's pimpin.

From the WSJ, AUg 31, page A14 Somehow, I find the reflective review of the WSJ more objective than the knee-jerk analysis of MSNBC. I'm not convinced that Ms Cutter knows what a lie is. There is no delicate way to describe ignorance. That one has a live mic in front of her face does not confer accuracy or authority. The Janesville President Paul Ryan quotes Barack Obama from 2008. Democrats are outraged. From their fainting couches, the press corps "fact checkers" and the liberals who love them are having a spell over Paul Ryan's Tampa convention speech. How dare he so much as mention the Wisconsin assembly plant that President Obama promised to keep open but didn't? The claim is that there was nothing the White House could do, because the General Motors facility in Mr. Ryan's hometown of Janesville was already starting to idle production and slated for closure when Mr. Obama took office. Therefore the empty production lines are George W. Bush's fault, like everything else in the last four years. But ...
If Paul Ryan was a race horse. You don't judge a race horse by his 'good' looks. You judge him by his track record. Paul Ryan voted for every spending bill in Bush administration which relatively made liberal Bill Clinton 'appear' to be a fiscal-conservative. Ryan voted for Bush's infamous TARP bill which bailed out Rothschild's banks on Wall Street that later was signed into law by the Muslim Kenyan in the White House. Ryan voted for turning the USA into the USSA by voting for the fascist laws NDAA, CISPA, Drone bill, Patriot Act extension & Trespass bill, all of which stomp all over our 1st and 4th Amendment rights to protest government, free political speech and our rights to privacy. Ryan's so called 'conservative' budget plans take 28 years for the country to get out of debt whereas Ron Paul or Gary Johnson's plans balance the budget in their 1st term. With a record like that, if Paul Ryan was a race horse if you were smart you'd sell him to the glue factory or to a dog food plant or to China where ...
The first faction of the Republican Party is the traditional business conservative. Higher income earners, maybe a trader on Wall Street or someone working in the oil industry. This sector of today's GOP represents the Republican Party that most Americans remember. When Ronald Reagan came into office in January of 1981, he brought "supply side" economics, or "Reaganomics," into mainstream America. With the promise of prosperity for all, Ronald Reagan and his administration sold the idea that giving tax breaks to the wealthy will, in the end, "trickle down" to the rest of the country. The problem with Reagan's economic polices were that they didn't work. Ronald Reagan dropped the top tax rate from 70% when he came into office in 1981, down to only 28% by the time he left the White House in 1989.

You know, years after the iconic movie 'Wall Street", I never envisioned that we would degrade so far as a nation to actually consider voting Gordon Gecko and his "greed...is good" philosophy, into the White House. Then again, after electing, then re-electing, Dubbya, I am shocked at nothing anymore.
First we elect Romney. Then move Wall Street to an offshore location. (Wait, that's already been done. OK, well drop that idea). Then we set up the White House on one of the three Cayman Islands. Put congress on the second and the Supreme Court on the third island. We officially declare Romney as Emperor. Have him attack: Syria, Israel, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Let Romney clean up the mess in the Middle East. Declare these nations to be the New Republic of the United States (NRUS - ours). Lockup all the bad guys and any of 'our' good guys that get in the way. And finally offer every American "Christian" a free trip to the Holy Land. Well at least the good Mormon's. And those with several wives can move to the head of the line. Oh, and I forgot, bring polygamy and prohibition back to the US of A.
After months of negative attacks from his Democratic opponents, Mitt Romney is trying to turn his experience at Bain Capital into a positive for his campaign, arguing in a new Wall Street Journal editorial the experience he gained there would help him in the White House. "The lessons I learned over ...
"This [company name deleted] fiasco is one of the biggest clusterf**ks ever on Wall Street. Regular people got screwed and the banks and the insiders did okay. Or as Mitt Romney calls it, 'The American Dream.'" –Bill Maher "It's not a good week for President Obama either. His approval rating has dropped 9% in the last month to an all-time low of 41%. It was 57% last May. In fact, if this keeps up, the White House says they may have to fish out Bin Laden and shoot him all over again." –Jay Leno
Vice President Joe Biden played the race card this week when he drawled Southern-style to a racially mixed audience that if Mitt Romney takes the White House, he'll "unchain Wall Street. They're going to put y'all back in chains." Last week, a super PAC run by a former aide to President Obama released an ad in which a former steelworker all but fingered Romney for causing his 55-year-old wife's cancer death in 2006 because Bain Capital shuttered the plant where he worked in 2001. The week before, White House aides stood back as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, without providing any proof whatsoever, charged that Romney didn't pay taxes for a decade. The president's henchmen are running a dirty campaign. The worst part of it: These nasty antics are the best Obamaland has to offer. Don't take my word for it. Heed the message delivered by Obama himself when he accepted the Democratic nomination for president in Denver in 2008: "If you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. ...
Here we go again!!! Yesterday morning, while campaigning in Danville, Va., VP Joe Biden made this comment: after saying that Mitt Romney was going to "unchain Wall Street" he said "and they gonna put y'all in chains". He made these comments in front of a crowd of 600+ people, with a large percentage of the crowd being Black People. I'm SICK and TIRED of conservatives, the Tea Party and Republicans being called racists!!! 99% of the time, the first person who brings up race in an argument is the *** racist!!! Accusing someone of being a racist is a serious charge. It is exactly on par with character assassination. Once again, our dim-witted, gaffe-speaking VP is spouting out more poisonous lies!!! Let's take a quick trip down history lane: Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, Woodrow Wilson segregated our military, every single governor in the South who refused to let black children integrate into the schools was a Democrat, LBJ used to run around the White House using the 'n' word like it was his ...
Romney's invitation for The Prez to return to Chitown and take his campaign of hate and divisiveness with him is a direct attempt to bring the name of Rev. Jeremiah Wright back into the minds of the conservative base. This was done after he criticized Joe Biden for using the metaphor of "being chained by Wall Street"if they elect the Romney ticket. They said it was a racial code word. Imagine that. When all else fails bring up Willie Horton, welfare queens and food stamps being used to buy booze and cigarettes while Cadillacs are idling outside of the store. This is Amerika. It is imperative that we keep a fool like the Mittster out of the halls of the White House.
Here's what Peter Wehrner, the former assistant to Karl Rove in the Bush II White House, said at the time about what Paul Ryan wants to do with Social Security. "You may know that there is a small number of conservatives who prefer to push only for investment accounts and make no effort to adjust benefits — therefore making no effort to address this fundamental structural problem… "This could easily cause an economic chain-reaction: the markets go south, interest rates go up, and the economy stalls out. To ignore the structural fiscal issues — to wholly ignore the matter of the current system’s benefit formula — would be irresponsible." Do we really want to give Wall Street gamblers access to your Social Security savings, so they can make a killing, while again imploding the economy? I don't.
Why do we as a country put up with dishonesty from our leaders? Of the four men involved in the race for President, do any of them have actions that back up their words? Paul Ryan and Barack Obama are two incredibly disingenuous people whose words have contradicted their actions time and time again. Paul Ryan gets gutsy when putting together budgets that he knows have no actual chance of passing, but when he was faced with actually voting for or against a massive jump in government size and debt, so long as his own party was in the White House, he voted in favor of it every time. Two unfunded wars, massive tax cuts with no cuts in spending to offset them, billions in corporate welfare known as the Medicare Prescription Drug benefit - the man's voting record is as Big Government as you get - so long as the Big Government in question is being run by his own party. Does that not bother anybody? Or is massive government expansion and debt only bad when the Democrats are in the White House? Barack Obama ca ...
Back in 2008, Financial Services companies, Goldman Sachs in particular, loved the Democrat Party and then-Senator Barack Obama. “[E]mployees of New York-based Goldman gave three-fourths of their campaign donations to Democratic candidates and committees, including presidential nominee Barack Obama,” Bloomberg reports. But then something happened. He got elected. After the 2008 presidential election, members of the financial community were no longer valued donors but were instead “fat cats” who don’t pay their “fair share” or “play by the rules.” And then the White House condoned and coddled that whole “Let’s Destroy Capitalism” Occupy Wall Street thing. What we’re trying to say is that members of the financial community, Goldman employees in particular, seem a little sore with Team Obama. So much so, in fact, that the Obama campaign has repeatedly tried to convince Wall Street that they’re not out to get them. Apparently, it’s not working: Goldman employees are “showering ...
David Letterman on Wall Street's desire to see Mitt Romney in the White House.
Morgan Freeman donates $1 million to Barack Obama's re-election Now we shall see, if the labor dept and or IRS investigates Morgan Freeman, as they did the businessman that gave to Mitt. .Movie legend Morgan Freeman has donated $1 million to help fund President Barack Obama's re-election campaign later this year. America will go to the polls in November, and a string of Hollywood stars have been holding fundraising events to boost Obama's campaign coffers in a bid to land him another four years in the White House. RELATED: Pics: Michelle Obama and More Powerful Moms Freeman, a longstanding Democrat and Obama supporter, has added his own money to Democratic Political Action Committee Priorities USA Action, which is backing Obama for another term. Speaking of his decision to hand over the hefty sum, Freeman writes, "He [Obama] has ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the Health Care of every American with a pre-existing conditio ...
Shared from Lee Sawyer's Post!!! "At a basketball game, the President and Michelle Obama got caught off-guard on a Kiss Cam. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney was caught off-guard by the Show Us Your Tax Returns Cam." ---Conan O'Brien - "Mitt Romney says he doesn’t know where his financial records are because he doesn’t manage them. He would have said more but he had to go give a speech on why he's the perfect guy to manage the economy." ---Jimmy Fallon - "I was just the guy with the smoke-screen'ish yet still-legal title of CEO and Managing Director who was paid at least one hundred thousand dollars a year to do what, according to me, Mitt Romney, was nothing! And that's the kind of common-sense business experience I hope to bring to the White House." ---Jon Stewart, channeling his inner Mitt - "Wall Street says they prefer Mitt Romney for president. And, by God, who could question Wall Street's judgment?" ---David Letterman - "I don’t know why, but Mitt Romney has gotten this reputation as a guy who can't id ...

During the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama was big finance’s favorite candidate by a long shot. Perhaps hoping to put a more Bill Clinton-esque Democrat in the White House (didn’t exactly work out that way, did it?), Wall Street poured money into the Democrats’ fundraising mac...
I'm writing to Senator Bernie Sanders to thank him for his couragous statement of truth. It was indeed the combination of two un-paid for wars at a time of tax cuts coupled with the greed of Wall Street that caused our current situation - ...NOT Obama's policies! If you believe Obama and the democrats are to blame, revisit the Congressional Record and see how the Republicans voted in the last 3 and 1/2 years. ALL of their votes. They have done nothing but undermine EVERY effort Obama has made to spur the economy, create jobs and reduce the deficit. Because they want to be in the White House so the rich can get richer and the Middle Class can disappear. That is their agenda. Period. Thank you, Senator Bernie Sanders for telling the truth.
White House is not for sale! Governor Romney can raise billions of dollars to buy air time and demonize his Democratic opponent, President Barack Obama. But Barack will still win in a landslide come November.. Not easy to sell a Wall Street financed candidate like Romney. Americans are too sophisticated to buy a bad product. God bless America.
A protest calling for the firing of Attorney General Eric Holder in front of the White House was called off early by the Secret Service.
Try to imagine that faithful day of January 20th 2017 as President Clinton ushers Barack and Michelle Obama to a waiting helicopter, Marine One, on the south lawn of the White House as they prepare to leave the White House and take a last look at D.C from the air. A day in the history of America that will live in pictures for a long, long time. Over the last eight years the country has almost totally recovered from the near financial collapse and all hostilities in the mid-east have ended; the Health Care policy (aka, Obamacare) has proven to be an overwhelming success with the savings applied to the national debt; entitlement programs are now on a sound financial footing and employment has reached its lowest level in fifty years; the Dream Act has proven a success as the immigration issues of the past have been revised and streamlined; the Veterans Administration is fully staffed and on schedule to meet and surpass their goals of 100% compliance of their duty to our injured soldiers; Wall Street is now ...
The House of Representatives' 2013 Financial Services bill severely undermines key investments in financial oversight and implementation of Wall Street Reform to protect American consumers banks and hedge funds. It reduces funding for needed tax enforcement. It also hampers effective implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a White House statement. Just who are these conservative members of the House of Representatives actually representing?
'The history of fascism in America -- Wall Street's Plot to Seize the FDR White House, 1933.' "We know about this scheme, and the corporate elite behind it, thanks to a high-ranking military whistle-blower: Marine Corps Maj.-Gen. Smedley Butler. Butler is largely forgotten today (he is the driving force behind OccupyMARINES), but 70 years ago he was the most revered American military hero, the only man to have twice been awarded the Marine’s prestigious Medal of Honor. During his loyal 33-year military career, Butler led invasions, quelled nationalist rebellions and instituted regime changes to benefit U.S. business interests in Mexico, Haiti, Cuba, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Honduras and China. In 1933, Butler was approached by men representing a clique of multi-millionaire industrialists and bankers. They hated U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) with a passion, and saw his “New Deal” policies as the start of a communist take-over that threatened their interests. FDR even had the te ...
Obama came into office vowing to end business as usual, and, in the gray post-crash dawn of 2009, nowhere did a reckoning with justice seem more due than in the financial sector. The public was shaken, and angry, and Wall Street seemed oblivious to its own culpability, defending extravagant pay bonuses even while accepting a taxpayer bailout. Obama channeled this anger, and employed its rhetoric, blaming the worldwide economic collapse on "the reckless speculation of bankers." Two months into his presidency, Obama summoned the titans of finance to the White House, where he told them, "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks." The bankers may have found the president's tone unsettling. Candidate Obama had been their guy, accepting vast amounts of Wall Street campaign money for his victories over Hillary Clinton and John Mccain (Goldman Sachs executives ponied up $1 million, more than any other private source of funding in 2008). Obama far outraised his Republican rival, John McCa ...
Enjoyed Charlie Rose on "Bloomberg" once more . Tonight he had "Regulator" Gary Gensler shining light on unfinished financial reforms , Washingtons political influence, Wall Street workings , Eurozone problems etc. . Both men should have been working for the White House for the past ten years ., of course , in decision making positions and many people would have kept their jobs and homes !
Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, announced today at a gathering of high profile Republicans and Wall Street executives that the GOP is formally divorcing reality on grounds of irreconcilable differences.
While President Obama assails the culture of greed and recklessness practiced by the men of Goldman Sachs, his administration is infested with them. The Democratic National Committee bought sponsored Internet ads on Google that direct web surfers who type in “Goldman Sachs SEC” to Obama’s fundraising site. “It’s time to hold the big banks accountable”. But just like his crony capitalist predecessor George W. Bush, Obama has relied on Goldman Sachs and Wall Street power brokers to engineer massive government interventions to “rescue” failing businesses with the tax dollars of ordinary Americans. While Democratic candidates like mob-linked banker Alexi Giannoulias in Illinois (who hopes to fill Obama’s old Senate seat) call on Republicans to return their fat-cat Goldman Sachs donations, the Democrats are silent on the $994,795 in Goldman Sachs campaign cash that Obama received The class-warfare Dems are also mum on all the president’s Goldman Sachs men working in his administration. ...

Choice is clear in race for White House The choice for president has never been clearer than in 2012. For the Tea Party-dominated Republican Party we have Willard Mitt Romney, who is worth approximately $25 million, and pays only 13 percent in taxes. He hides his money overseas and hasn’t held a full-time job in six years — unless you call running for president a job. He “doesn’t care about the poor,” he “likes to fire people,” he believes “corporations are people,” and is a corporate raider. He will return us to the disastrous policies of G.W. Bush which almost caused our country to dip into a depression. It’s simple: you can’t cut taxes on the upper classes, fight two wars, and deregulate the banks and Wall Street. President Obama saved the U.S. from economic disaster with his quick, decisive economic policies. Romney would have let GM go bankrupt. So, it’s back to the failed policies of the G.W. Bush years or continued progress under President Obama. It is so sad that the averag ...
The president wants this election to be the White House vs. Wall Street. But if it’s really Harvard Business School vs. Harvard Law School, I’ll take the M.B.A. over the J.D. every time. The only jobs lawyers ever create are for other lawyers.
JPMorgan Chase’s $2 billion loss shows that Wall Street needs to be better regulated, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Monday.
This week, American Future Fund will be launching a cable TV ad titled “Obama’s Wall Street”. The ad buy totals nearly $4 million and will air in nine states, including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. The ad points to the hypocrisy of President Obama’s criticism of Wall Street compared to his cozy relationship with Wall Street executives. He has been a vocal critic of Wall Street, claiming he wasn’t elected to help “fat cat bankers on Wall Street.” But his past and present tell a different story. Obama voted for the Wall Street bailout. Then he accepted $42 million for his campaign from Wall Street bankers and financial insiders. More than any other candidate in history. Finally he filled his White House full of Wall Street Executives. His new Chief of Staff, Jack Lew, accepted a nearly $1 million bonus from Citigroup after taxpayers bailed them out. And in the ultimate act of irony, Obama appointed Jon Corzine – who lost $1.2 ...
Quote of the Day II:"The Chicago police claim they don’t plan to turn the eardrum-busting sound cannons on full volume against the demonstrators – just loud enough to convey “messages” to the crowd. The protesters are sending their own message, one that has become far more popular and general than could have been imagined, a year ago. Since the emergence of the Occupy Movement, last October, millions of Americans have come to understand what Latin American peasants have always known: that the nexus of war in the world is Wall Street, and the Pentagon is its servant – as is the White House and most of the Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court. War is waged for the purpose of global economic subjugation and, therefore, peace can only be won by dethroning the financial bad guys: the Lords of Capital. So, much of the peace movement now sees itself as an expression of the 99 Percent, against the warlike and greedy 1 Percent. Once that lesson is learned, it cannot be shouted out by police sound-blasters ...
The Republican establishment has pushed Mitt Romney BECAUSE he is weak. They WANT someone weak who will change his views to please their interest groups. They WANT someone they can push around. Grover Nordquist came right out and said they want someone who will do what they say. Look what just happened at J. P. Morgan. Do you want a president who is buddies with Jamie Dimon? Do you want someone who is a Wall Street person who will let Wall Street have free reign? Do you want a weak, wishy washy person in the White House?
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday that JPMorgan's $2 billion loss is a perfect example of why President Barack Obama fought so hard for Wall Street Reform and why the additional steps need to be taken.
JPMorgan'slarge trading losses affirm the need for Wall Street oversight, the White House said on Monday, declining to comment on the specifics of the case while the Securities and Exchange Commission investigates it. This event only reinforces why it was so important to...
"As the centers of American power were seized and hijacked by corporations, the media continued to pay deference to systems of power that could no longer be considered honest or democratic. The media treat criminals on Wall Street as responsible members of the ruling class. They treat the criminals in the White House and the Pentagon as statesmen." - Chris Hedges
For a much more serious and profound poem--A Call to Action: Occupy by Brian McSweeney Let all the heroes come. Let all the spirits and ancestors join us now when the veil is thin. Let William Blake and Oscar Wilde lead an army of starving Irish peasants to take back their land from the English Lords who stole it. Let all the great writers join minds, Tolstoy, Marx, Jung, and Camus come marching through my sleeping neighborhood. Jonathan Swift come with Seamus Heaney, join Richard Wright at the White House and take off our President’s mask. Abe Lincoln sit Bill O’Reilly on your knee, tell him to spend his time reading The Complete Works of Frederick Douglas, who also might have a few words for Barack Obama, whose own ancestors are out of their minds in rage over his collusion with Wall Street. Let Aragorn awaken the Dead, let the Ents and Trees march on the Banks, the Pentagon, the Trump Towers, Rupert Murdoch’s empire, the Wells Fargo building housing Sheriff Joe Arpolo to crack asunder the foundat ...
Control of the entire African Resource, Control of the Middle East and the Encirclement of the Russian Federation and the economic suppression of china are the main goals of the Washington-London brotherhood.After achieving these, a New World Order will be succesfully installed, and a permanent government headed by families of the super super super filthy rich will presides over that permanent government.Most of the work has already been done by their forefathers, the likes of Washington Presscot, now recently by Goerge Bush Senior, and we saw Bush Junior in action.This world we see is not the world discussed in the White House, Wall Street, 10 Downing Street in collaboration with the those Kingdoms united called the UK headed by the Queen and all their European friends.They call themselves the Free World.
Powerful corporations and their Wall Street allies would assault the White House with more force than the Red Army. -Paul Craig Roberts
Political Awareness RIP: Insider Trading in Congress: 'Chalk one up for the reformers. On Wednesday, President Obama signed into the law the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, which bans members of Congress and their staffs from using non-public information to get a leg up in the stock market. The law also creates a system for tracking in real-time the stock deals of those walking the halls of Congress. The STOCK Act's passage marks a victory (of sorts) for the good-government group Public Citizen, a long-time advocate of banning congressional Insider Trading. Here's a useful White House fact-sheet with a full rundown of the law's provisions. What the STOCK Act does not do is shine some much-needed sunlight on the so-called political intelligence industry. Political intelligence companies meet with lawmakers and their staffs and gather valuable information for Wall Street firms and hedge funds to use in their investment decisions. But a provision forcing these companies to register like ...
