On a $4M Vacation, Michelle Seeks $3 From Backers

by Keith Koffler on December 30, 2011

For the first time in my life, I am really proud of this country.

Speaking from her paradisical $4 million Hawaii vacation, Mrs. Obama wants to know: Do any of President Obama’s supporters have $3 to spare for his reelection?

This is approximately like coming upon Warren Buffett on a street corner with a McDonald’s cup asking if he can have 15 cents.

Michelle’s request was part of an email sent to the Obama 2012 list today.

Over the next 11 months we’ve got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up.

I hope you’ll close out this year by donating $3 or more now to help make sure we’re ready for the next one . . .

Thank you so much, and happy new year,



The obscene juxtaposition of the first lady on a $4 million vacation while asking what would have to be middle to low income earners for three bucks – who else would they be targeting with such an appeal? – is yet another example of lack of perspective the Obamas seem to be gaining while in power.

FACT CHECK: Obama's 2012 State of the Union

1,24,2012 | AP

It was a wish list, not a to-do list.








FACT CHECK: Obama's 2012 State of the Union

1,24,2012 | AP

President Obama's array of plans in his State of the Union speech was light  on a key piece of context -- namely, that his hands are so tied until after the  election that it is doubtful many if any of them can be done in the remainder of  his term. There can be little more than wishful thinking behind his call to end  oil industry subsidies -- something he could not get through a Democratic  Congress, much less today's divided Congress, much less in this election  year.

A look at Obama's rhetoric Tuesday night and how it fits with the facts and  political realities of the day:

OBAMA: "We have subsidized oil companies for a century. That's long enough.  It's time to end the taxpayer giveaways to an industry that's rarely been more  profitable, and double-down on a clean energy industry that's never been more  promising."

THE FACTS: This is at least Obama's third run at stripping subsidies from the  oil industry. Back when fellow Democrats formed the House and Senate majorities,  he sought $36.5 billion in tax increases on oil and gas companies over the next  decade, but Congress largely ignored the request. He called again to end such  tax breaks in last year's State of the Union speech. And he's now doing it  again, despite facing a wall of opposition from Republicans who want to spur  domestic oil and gas production and oppose tax increases generally.

OBAMA: "Our health care law relies on a reformed private market, not a  government program."

THE FACTS: That's only half true. About half of the more than 30 million  uninsured Americans expected to gain coverage through the health care law will  be enrolled in a government program. Medicaid, the federal-state program for low-income people, will be expanded starting in  2014 to cover childless adults living near the poverty line.

The other half will be enrolled in private health plans through new  state-based insurance markets. But many of them will be receiving federal  subsidies to make their premiums more affordable. And that's a government  program, too.

Starting in 2014 most Americans will be required to carry health coverage,  either through an employer, by buying their own plan, or through a government  program.

George W. Bush appears on a billboard sign in Minnesota

"The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) shows that the Bush tax cuts in 2004-06 produced the highest two-year tax revenue increase in the preceding 40 years, and unemployment dropped to the lowest recor ever, 4.5%"

OBAMA: "Tonight, I want to speak about how we move forward, and lay out a  blueprint for an economy that's built to last - an economy built on American  manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a renewal of  American values."

THE FACTS: Economists do see manufacturing growth as a necessary component of  any U.S. recovery. U.S. manufacturing output climbed 0.9 percent in December,  the biggest gain since December 2010. Yet Obama's apparent vision of a nation  once again propelled by manufacturing -- a vision shared by many Republicans --  may already have slipped into the past.

Over generations, the economy has become ever more driven by services; not  since 1975 has the U.S. had a surplus in merchandise trade, which covers trade  in goods, including manufactured and farm goods. About 90 percent of American  workers are employed in the service sector, a profound shift in the nature of  the workforce over many decades.

The overall trade deficit through the first 11 months of 2011 ran at an  annual rate of nearly $600 billion, up almost 12 percent from the year  before.

OBAMA: "The Taliban's momentum has been broken, and some troops in Afganistan have begun to come home."

THE FACTS: Obama is more sanguine about progress in Afghanistan than his own  intelligence apparatus. The latest National Inteligence Estiamte on Afghanistan warns that the Taliban will grow stronger, using fledgling talks with the U.S. to gain credibility and  stall until U.S. troops leave, while continuing to fight for more territory. The  classified assessment, described to The Associated Press by officials who have  seen it, says the Afghan government hasn't been able to establish credibility  with its people, and predicts the Taliban and warlords will largely control the  countryside.

OBAMA: "On the day I took office, our auto industry was on the verge of  collapse. Some even said we should let it die. With a million jobs at stake, I  refused to let that happen. In exchange for help, we demanded responsibility. We  got workers and automakers to settle their differences. We got the industry to  retool and restructure. Today, General Motors is back on top as the world's  number one automaker. Chrysler has grown faster in the U.S. than any major car  company. Ford is investing billions in U.S. plants and factories. And together,  the entire industry added nearly 160,000 jobs."

THE FACTS: He left out some key details. The bailout of General Motors and  Chrysler began under Republican President George  W. Bush. Obama picked up the ball, earmarked more money, and finished the  job. But Ford, which Obama mentions as well, never asked for a federal bailout  and never got one. It's managed to get along on its own. Also, as part of its  restructuring, Chrysler is not really a U.S. automaker anymore. Italian  automaker Fiat now owns a 30 percent share, and it will eventually go to 51  percent under terms of the U.S. bailout and its bankruptcy restructuring.

36 Obama aides owe $833,000 in back taxes

Andrew Malcolm 


Pete Souza / White House (Obama addresses his White House staff, file)


How embarrassing this must be for President Obama, whose major speech theme so far this campaign season has been that every single American, no matter how rich, should pay their "fair share" of taxes.

Because how unfair -- indeed, un-American -- it is for an office worker like, say, Warren Buffet's secretary to dutifully pay her taxes, while some well-to-do people with better educations and higher incomes end up paying a much smaller tax rate.

Or, worse, skipping their taxes altogether.

A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama's executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven't paid any share, let alone their fair share.

Previous reports have shown how well-paid Obama's White House staff is, with 457 aides pulling down more than $37 million last year. That's up seven workers and nearly $4 million from the Bush administration's last year.

Nearly one-third of Obama's aides make more than $100,000 with 21 being paid the top White House salary of $172,200, each.

The IRS' 2010 delinquent tax revelations come as part of a required annual agency report on federal employees' tax compliance. Turns out, an awful lot of folks being paid by taxpayers are not paying their own income taxes.

The report finds that thousands of federal employees owe the country more than $3.4 billion in back taxes. That's up 3% in the past year.

That scale of delinquency could annoy voters, hard-pressed by their own costs, fears and stubbornly high unemployment despite Joe Biden's many promises.

The tax offenders include employees of the U.S. Senate who help write the laws imposed on everyone else. They owe $2.1 million. Workers in the House of Representatives owe $8.5 million, Department of Education employees owe $4.3 million and over at Homeland Security, 4,697 workers owe about $37 million. Active duty military members owe more than $100 million.

The Treasury Department, where Obama nominee Tim Geithner had to pay up $42,000 in his own back taxes before being confirmed as secretary, has 1,181 other employees with delinquent taxes totaling $9.3 million.

As usual, the Postal Service, with more than 600,000 workers, has the most offenders (25,640), who also owe the most -- almost $270 million. Veterans Affairs has 11,659 workers owing the IRS $151 million while the Energy Department that was so quick to dish out more than $500 million to the Solyndra folks has 322 employees owing $5 million.

The country's chief law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice, has 2,069 employees who are nearly $17 million behind in taxes. Like Operation Fast and Furious, Attorney General Eric Holder has apparently missed them too.

As with ordinary people, the IRS attempts to negotiate back-tax payment plans with all delinquents, whose names cannot be released. But according to current federal law, the only federal employees who can be fired for not paying taxes are IRS workers.

Obama’s Green Robber Barons

By Michelle Malkin On January 26, 2012 In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Had enough of fat cat Barack Obama, his jet-setting wife and his multi-millionaire Chicago consigliere/real-estate mogul Valerie Jarrett attacking the “rich”? Well, brace yourselves. You’ll be hearing much more from the White House about the “wealthy few” who aren’t paying their “fair share” as Obama’s re-election campaign doubles down on class-war demagoguery.

As usual, there’s always a set of immunity charms for the privileged friends and family of the ruling class. When it comes to all the Green Robber Barons who’ve reaped an obscenely unfair share of billions of tax dollars from the Obama administration, the envy trumpeteers will be quieter than a nest of mute church mice.

Obama’s State of the Union address defiantly pitched a new round of clean energy spending orgies to help the “middle class.” But how have the serial bankruptcies and near-bankruptcies of several federally subsidized solar companies — all under Obama’s watch — helped anyone but an upper-crust elite of eco-crats and their lobbyists and consultants?

Bankrupt Solyndra, billionaire George Kaiser. In the wake of the half-billion-dollar Solyndra stimulus bust, company officials revealed plans to hand out hefty bonuses totaling $500,000. Months before the politically connected solar energy manufacturer went belly up, it was doling out bonus payments of between $40,000 and $60,000 to several executives. Last week, a local CBS News crew caught employees at the Silicon Valley headquarters trashing solar panel glass tubes worth an estimated $10 million.

Cronyism, Bailouts, and Media Bias inside the Solyndra Collapse

Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.~Jeremiah 5:21

The now-abandoned Taj Mahal complex cost ordinary Americans more than $733 million. But billionaire Democratic donor and frequent White House guest George Kaiser, whose nonprofit foundation was Solyndra’s biggest investor, is still sitting pretty. He and the other private investors of Solyndra will recoup their losses ahead of taxpayers. And while they blast their GOP opponents, double-standard Democrats will remain AWOL on the glaring tax-avoidance strategies of the wealthy Kaiser Family Foundation.

Bankrupt Beacon Power, fat Democratic coffers.This green energy storage plant filed for bankruptcy last fall after a $43 million injection of Obama Department of Energy loan guarantees. Federal election record filings show that CEO William Capp contributed to the 2008 Obama campaign, as well as several left-wing New England Democratic candidates. Beacon Power lobbyist Steve Wolfe was a former aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. Beacon sought bankruptcy shelter two days after the White House responded to fiscal watchdogs’ demands for a review of the DOE’s shoddy loan monitoring programs.

Bankrupt SpectraWatt, red-faced Goldman Sachs. A solar cell company based in New York, SpectraWatt went belly up last August despite a half-million-dollar federal stimulus boost and lucrative backing from politically connected Goldman Sachs — whose ties reach deep into the Obama Treasury Department, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, White House National Economic Council and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. itself. The eco-failure was dumped in a fire sale for less than $5 million.

Teetering Nevada Geothermal, cheerleading Harry Reid. Despite $150 million in federal DOE and Treasury Department subsidies — not to mention personal lobbying by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — this alternative energy project is on the brink of failure. A Deloitte and Touche audit grimly concludes that the company “has incurred net losses over the past several years, has an accumulated deficit of $44.0 million and an anticipated inability to retire its long-term liabilities.” According to CBS News, the company’s latest SEC filings warn of multiple defaults.

My scouring of White House visitor logs shows nine visits from another Green Robber Baron, Illinois-based Exelon’s CEO John Rowe, who met with the president and former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel multiple times. As Forbes magazine reported: The clean energy company “has very deep ties to the Obama Administration. Frank M. Clark, who runs ComEd, helped advise Obama before he ran for president and is one of Obama’s largest fundraisers. Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, worked as a consultant to Exelon. Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, helped create Exelon” — where he raked in more than $16 million over two years.

Remember: “Fairness” is in the eye of the wealth redistributors.

Newt Gingrich DEMOLISHES Barack  Obama  in debate.

by Peter Shepherd


march 2, 20112

"As an American I am  not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize  without any accomplishments to his name,   America  gave him the White House based on the  same credentials." Newt Gingrich    (7/16/2008)



Some  people  have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand  them. This  quote came from a friend in the  Czech Republic . We have  a lot of work to   do. "The  danger to America is not Barack Obama but a  citizenry capable of  entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.  It  will be far easier  to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to  restore the  necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate  willing  to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and  far  more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America .

Blaming the prince of  the fools should not  blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that  made him their prince. The  Republic can survive a Barack Obama,who is,  after all, merely a fool.  It  is less likely to survive a multitude  of fools such as those who made him their   president."

Obama Puts Down America Again


By: Ronald Kessler

 As President Obama turns to campaigning instead of governing, he reveals more of his real thinking.

“America’s not just looking out for yourself, it’s not just about greed, it’s not just about trying to climb to the very top and keep everybody else down,” Obama said at the United Auto Workers’ annual National Community Action Program Legislative Conference in Washington.


In other words, with certain exceptions, America is about keeping others down. Yet the fact is no one who has climbed to the top wants to keep anybody down. Not Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, George Soros, Michael Moore, Warren Buffett, or Obama himself. Not Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, or Michael Dell.

Having created an imaginary bogey-man, Obama sends a message to the least fortunate in our society that the deck is stacked against them, so why try?

I recently saw the brilliant documentary film “Waiting for Superman” produced by Walden Media. It was heartbreaking to see poor, mainly black children shed tears because they did not win a lottery to attend a charter school. Because they can fire incompetent teachers, charter schools send up to 90 percent of their graduates to college.

[ Editado ]

part 2

Obama’s message to those kids is that, because rich people do not want them to succeed, they are victims with no chance of making it. That is the same message my friend Juan Williams decried in his book “Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-end Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America — and What We Can Do About It.” Williams cites a long tradition of black self-reliance going back to Booker T. Washington.

But in recent decades, “That tradition has been abandoned by people who say, ‘What if we portray people as victims? If we have a larger pool of poor people, then we are eligible for a bigger government grant,’” Williams told me in a Newsmax interview about his book.

“Black leaders maintain their positions of power by mismanaging people,” Williams says. “They say that the way we get power is by pretending to be so weak and impotent that we have to say, ‘It’s the result of what the government is doing, and we have to wait for the government to help us.’ I just think it’s criminal to tell people that kind of sad message.”

Infamous frase of Obama's espiritual and political mentor, Rev. Wright,

a rabid racist and anti-american marxist

Clearly, Obama does not agree. Rather, his message mirrors that of Obama’s former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., the man Obama called his mentor and sounding board.

Wright espoused what he called the Black Value System, which asserts that America structures “an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons” and takes other steps to “snare” blacks rather than “killing them off directly” or “placing them in concentration camps.”

In a striking parallel to what Obama told the UAW, Wright said, “We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty.” He memorably suggested that the song “God Bless America” should be substituted with “God d*** America!”

My most liberal friends and family members say they would have walked out on hearing such sentiments. But Obama listened for 20 years. As noted in my story MSM instead of exposing Obama’s association with Wright, the media covered up for the future president. For three months during the primary campaign, news outlets refused to pick up Newsmax stories quoting Wright’s sermons. By then, Obama was ahead of Hillary Clinton in the voting.

Now Wright’s message has a voice in the White House, and the politics of victimhood and class warfare are shaping our economic policies. The biggest losers have been black youth, whose unemployment rate reached 46.5 percent in August.

“Waiting for Superman” shows what that means in wrenching human terms. Watching the film only underscores how important it is to elect a president who believes in America and the values that have made this country great.
