Obama’s War on Wealth...

Obama’s War on Wealth

By Tait Trussell On April 20, 2011 @ 12:20 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage  

     Barack Obama unsheathed his key campaign weapon for 2012: Tax America’s millionaires and billionaires and thereby solve our national debt. It won’t work for several reasons.

         A little-publicized finding should shock Obama supporters: The president’s approval among the poorest Americans is only 48 percent, according to an April 13 Gallup poll, leaving him with less-than-majority approval rating among all income brackets in Gallup’s presidential approval surveys.

     While some people resent the high pay and bonuses earned by Wall Street bankers, they have no resentment about the many millions in riches paid to some who star in movies, or silly TV shows, or who play pro basketball, which Obama loves so much.

    Moreover, study after study has shown that those without a lot of money don’t resent the rich. Many hope they will be wealthy some day. And while Obama is eager to brainwash the gullible public into believing that the “rich” are under-taxed, in truth, they pay more than their “fair share.”

    The Adjusted Gross Income for those earning $250,000 is 21.2 percent of the total tax of $7.6 trillion. On total tax returns, the “rich” paid 43 percent. So, those in the $250,000-plus bracket still are bearing twice the tax load, relative to their income, according to 2009 preliminary IRS figures and calculations of the National Taxpayer Union.

        This doesn’t stop many Democrats from practicing demagoguery: claiming that the Republicans want to deprive poor children of sustenance and hurt old and young women with their budget.

     Slamming the responsible Republican plan to shrink the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt, Obama April 13 blustered: “There’s nothing serious about a [budget reduction] plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.” That was his rude contention in his speech as his purported and distorted response to the debt crisis.

      Speaking as if he were the purveyor of all truths, Obama declared:

“In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle class Americans. But we cannot afford a trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. And I refuse to renew them again.” His lower lip curled down in defiance.

     The president implored citizens to understand that — like a trapped animal — he was forced to go along with those wanting to preserve the tax cuts in order to be the heroic protector to the middle class. The fact is, the agreement was only to continue those same existing tax rates for two more years. No new tax cuts were given to millionaires or billionaires.

    The Boston Consulting Group’s Global Wealth 2010 Report stated that the largest percentage of money gain has occurred in the Asia-Pacific region, where wealth soared 22 percent, or $3.1 trillion. In the tiny republic of Singapore, 11.3 percent of its households were millionaires. Compare that with the U.S. population, where the millionaires make up only 4 percent of our millions of households. Switzerland has more than twice as high a percentage of millionaire households as the U.S. So does Kuwait.

     There were 1,210 billionaires in the whole world in 2011. According to a Forbes analysis, 75 of them live in liberal New York City, where Obama has sought much of his campaign funds.

   According to data from the National Taxpayers Union and the IRS, the top 5 percent of taxpayers pay about 60 percent of the federal income revenues. A taxpayer with a reported Adjusted Gross Income of as low at $160,000—less than a member of Congress makes—falls into this category. The bottom half of American taxpayers fork over less than 3 percent of the taxes collected.

      More than 36 percent of Americans pay no federal income taxes, according to the Tax Foundation and IRS figures. That’s why consumer polls show that many people don’t care if taxes are raised. Why should they? They don’t have to pay them.

      According to the Census Bureau, the total number of American households is 117,583,000, with a mean income of $67,976. The number of households with household incomes of under $5,000 is 3,747,000.

In the bracket Obama has his sights trained on — the $250,000-and-over earners — there are 2,372,000 of these. But only 319,000 are millionaires. Roughly 70 percent are small business owners reporting business profits on their personal tax returns. We count on these individuals to provide the most jobs in the U.S.

    Obama also wants to get rid of what he calls tax loopholes. But you can’t pay off much of the debt even if, for example, you wiped out all the itemized deductions, most of which really aren’t considered loopholes. According to preliminary data from the IRS for 2009, the figure is less than $1.2 trillion. Total deductions for those at the targeted $250,000-plus level were $217 million.

       The future prospects for controlling the debt became even darker last month in an under-reported congressional hearing of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy. Economist Lewis Lehrman pointed out that the level of debt service payments could rise by an order of magnitude and consume a part of the federal budget which today is “almost unthinkable.” He said he sees an uncontrolled $800 billion federal spending increase in four or five years.

    The Standard & Poor credit rating service, in a stunning decision April 18, moved its outlook on the U.S. debt from a stable to a negative rating, as all financial services reported. Although the administration said it believed the S&P “underestimates the ability of American leaders to come together,” the respected credit service said it fears that the differences in how to avoid a fiscal stalemate could continue until 2014.

   So, it is not only the Republicans in Congress who are raising dire warning signs about our debt. Obama must begin to deal with reality.

Top 20 Events Which Prove Obama Is A Marxist Communist
By Hal Licino

    At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

    - Abraham Lincoln, January 27, 1838

      How Obama’s Undeniably Marxist Communist Policies Threaten America and How To Nationalize GM, Ripoff Investors, Gift It To The Unions & Deny It’s Communism, I have been challenged by commenters on my classification of Barack Hussein Obama as a socialist, communist, and Marxist.

    Here are the top twenty points to prove my thesis (all readily verifiable), and please note that I am not including in this list any of the President’s policies such as the socialist nationalization of GM and Chrysler which at the stroke of a pen deprived private investors of billions of dollars of their legitimate property and turned it over to the state and the unions (the proletariat in Marxist parlance).

     Obama admits attending socialist conferences and reading Marxist literature. He stated that he “chose his friends carefully... the Marxist professors... we were resisting resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints.”

 

 

 

Comrades Barak Obama and Hugo Chavez

 

    Frank Marshall Davis to whom Obama refers to as “Frank” and with whom the young Obama “had a close relationship, almost like a son” is publicly identified as a prominent member of the Communist Party USA and an acknowledged Stalinist agent.
     Obama held receptions at the home of, and served on boards with, another mentor who has had an indelible influence on his world view: William Ayers along with his wife Bernardine Dohrn.

 

    The two were leaders of the terrorist group known as the Weathermen or the Weather Underground, notable for a campaign from 1969 through the middle 1970s of riots, bombings, murders, and a jailbreak. Under Ayers and Dohrn’s leadership, the terrorist organization bombed the United States Capitol on March 1, 1971, The Pentagon on May 19, 1972, and the United States Department of State Building on January 29, 1975. Their founding document calls for “the destruction of US imperialism and achieve a classless world: world communism.”

     When recently asked about his terrorist activities, Ayers replied he had “no regrets” and that “we didn’t do enough”.

 

    At one Obama reception at the Ayers Dohrn home Alice Palmer, who was identified by the FBI as being on Soviet payroll in the Eighties and an enthusiastic attendee of the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, announced that she was stepping down from office as Obama was her chosen successor.
   
Mike Klonsky was funded to the tune of $1,968,718.00 by an organization headed by Obama and Ayers. His father, Robert Klonsky, was an American communist who was convicted for advocating the forcible overthrow of the United States government. Mike founded a precursor of the Weatherman terrorist group, formed the American Communist Party (Marxist/Leninist), was feted in China by Maoists, and spoke in front of Hugo Chavez for the need to bring the Marxist revolution into the classroom.
     Obama admits that one of his close friends was Rashid Khalidi, who was the President of Columbia University’s Communist Party and a former spokesperson for the PLO. They had frequent dinners together and the Obamas even babysat Khalidi’s children. Obama led organizations funded the Arab American Action League an organization calling for the demolition of Israel and chaired by Khalidi’s wife. Khalidi held successful fundraisers for Obama’s campaign.

 

     Che Guevara who advocated the “extermination” of the United States, and was involved in a foiled plot to bomb crowded department stores and New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, had his portraits hung on the precinct captain’ wall of Obama headquarters in Houston. The campaign formally only stated that it was “inappropriate.”
   
During the presidential election campaign, Hamas advisor Ahmed Yousef was quoted as saying, “We like Mr. Obama. We hope he will win the election.” Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and is on the US State Department list of leftist terrorist organizations.
   
The Communist Party USA actively supported Obama during the primary election and their leader Sam Webb recently stated: “Just look at the new lay of the land: a friend of labor and its allies sits in the White House.” He went on to enthusiastically discuss Obama’s agenda to nationalize the American financial system, the Federal Reserve Bank, and private industries such as energy and various other sectors. “All these – and many other things – are within OUR reach now... an opportunity of a lifetime,” Webb exclaimed.
Obama’s father wrote a thesis entitled “Problems With Our Socialism” that advocates 100% taxation of the rich, communal ownership of land and the forced confiscation of privately controlled land.
    Obama’s mother was a communist sympathizer from her youth. Obama has spoken of her beliefs: “The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.”
     Obama’s parents met in a Russian language class, generally unusual in the USA of the Fifties, but a common activity for communists in that age.
Barack Obama’s older brother, Abongo “Roy” Obama is a militant Marxist Muslim who has made a pact with a hard-line Islamic group in Kenya to establish Shari’a law. Barack calls his brother “the person who made me proudest of all.”
    Obama’s grandparents moved 2,000 miles so Obama’s mother could attend a school where communism was openly advocated and whose chairman testified to being a member of the Communist Party. Obama’s grandparents also attended a church known as “The Little Red Church” due to its promotion of communism.
    
Obama received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America for an Illinois state senate seat in 1996.
Obama delivered an eulogy for Saul Mendelson, a lifelong communist activist.
   
Obama’s physican, close friend and supporter Dr. Quentin Young was a prominent member of the communist Bethune Club.
   
Obama’s church, the Trinity United Church of Christ, is a leading proponent of Liberation Theology which is an religious overlay onto Marxism.
   Obama admits that he
regularly attended communist conferences at Cooper Union College.
   Obama endorsed Bernie Sanders, who was the first self-described socialist to be elected to the U.S. Senate. The National Journal’s 27th annual vote ratings placed only one Senator who had voted a more socialistic agenda than Sanders: Obama.
     I leave you with the warning words of Russian Prime Minister and former KGB agent Vladimir Putin, who should certainly understand the essence of communism:

 

 

   Interference of the State, the belief in the omnipotence of the State: that is a reaction to market failures. There is a temptation to expand direct interference of state in economy. In the Soviet Union that became an aabsolute. We paid a very dear price for that.

     As a Canadian citizen I proudly state: God bless America... God save America... Before it is too late.

10 Things You Need to Know About High Gas Prices and Obama’s Oil Policy
The Heritage Foundation ^ | February 23, 2011 @ 6:00 p | Rory Cooper

This week the media’s attention is finally focused on oil prices. After two years of continually rising consumer gas prices in America, the oil futures market has captivated the Mideast storyline. And attention is much needed. December 2010 saw the highest gas prices for the month of December in our nation’s history. This month, we’re setting similar records with the national average of $3.14/gallon [1]–fifty cents higher than it was a year ago. If this trend continues, the summer of 2011 will hit consumers much harder than in the summer of 2008 when prices soared above $4/gallon.

     But if you only read, hear or see this week’s news reports, you would think that oil and gas prices were doing just fine until the historic events in Egypt, Libya and across the Middle East unfolded this past month and caused spikes in the futures market. Unfortunately, that is not the case. President Obama has been unilaterally taking steps to increase the cost of gasoline for two years. Here are ten things you need to know about gas prices that you may not hear reported elsewhere:

     1. Gas Prices Are Skyrocketing Under President Obama: The oil futures market is just that, a futures market. The price-per-barrel spikes in oil this week have not affected the domestic market yet. In fact, former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister made the prediction in December 2010 that America would face $5/gallon gasoline by 2012 [2], a full month before the revolution in Egypt began. At the end of President George W. Bush’s two terms in office, prices were 9% lower [3] than when he took office (adjusted for inflation). The day before President Obama was inaugurated; the average price of a gallon of gas was $1.83 [4]. Today, that average is over $3.95 [4].

     2. President Obama Has Crippled Domestic Oil Exploration: Putting aside calls from some who want to increase domestic exploration to areas in Alaska and elsewhere, President Obama has completely shut down the existing oil drilling infrastructure in the U.S. At least 103 permits are awaiting review [5] by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement. The federal government has not approved a single new exploratory drilling plan in the Gulf of Mexico since Obama “lifted” his deepwater drilling moratorium in October 2010. Obama also reversed an earlier decision by his administration to open access to coastal waters for exploration, instead placing a seven-year ban on drilling [6] in the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts and Eastern Gulf of Mexico as part of the government’s 2012-2017 Outer Continental Shelf Program.

     3. The Obama Permitorium is Costing the Government Much-Needed Revenue: The Gulf accounts for more than 25 percent of domestic oil production. With production in the Gulf expected to drop in 2011 by 220,000 barrels per day, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates the U.S. will suffer $3.7 million in lost revenue per day [5] as a result of lost royalties. If that holds, the federal government would lose more than $1.35 billion [7] from royalty payments, just this year.

     4. The Obama Administration Has Been Held in Contempt of Court: Federal District Court Judge Martin Feldman held the Obama Interior Department in contempt of court [8] on February 2, 2011, for dismissively ignoring his ruling to cease the drilling moratorium which the judge had previously struck down as “arbitrary and capricious.” Judge Feldman has since given the Administration 30 days to act on permits [9] it has needlessly and purposefully delayed saying inaction was “not a lawful option.”

     5. Jobs Are Being Killed by Obama’s Oil Policies: As a direct result of Obama’s oil policies, companies that help supply our domestic energy needs are going out of business [9]. Most recently, Houston-based Seahawk Drilling filed for bankruptcy. The Chief Operating Officer of the offshore drilling company, Randy Stilley, stated: “The decision by regulators to arbitrarily construct unnecessary barriers to obtaining permits they had traditionally authorized has had an adverse impact not only on Seahawk, but on the sector as a whole.”

     6. And More Jobs Are Being Killed: Vendors, suppliers, even restaurants and retailers are losing ground or going out of business as a result of the economically crippling policies Obama has unilaterally imposed. According to Reuters, many of the thirty-plus deepwater rigs in the Gulf have moved to other markets [10]. Each rig directly employs approximately 200 people, but that doesn’t even count the ripple effect across the nation. One industry official told CNBC that the industry was on “life support [11].” But President Obama is spending billions to finance offshore jobs…in Brazil [12]. The Obama Administration committed at least $2 billion in 2009 towards Petrobras, one of the largest offshore oil drilling companies in the world.

     7. Decreasing Our Domestic Supply Increases Foreign Dependence: Even Energy Secretary Steven Chu admits [13] that “any disruption in the Middle East means a partial disruption in the oil we import. It’s a world market and [a disruption] could actually have real harm of the price.” If this is the case, then cutting our domestic supply hardly seems like an appropriate response. Rather than face this reality, Secretary Chu ridiculously called for an increase in renewable energy investments, which is a complete non-sequitur.

     8. Renewable Energy Is Not the Answer to Mideast Turmoil: According to the EIA, petroleum accounts for less than one percent of electricity production. So wind and solar, which do not produce transportation fuel even if Obama’s $40,000 Chevy Volt quadruples production, can only replace coal and natural gas, of which America has an abundant supply. As for biomass, over 40 percent of domestic corn consumption goes to ethanol, which provides less than 10 percent of our transportation fuel and causes food prices to increase. Three large production platforms in the Gulf could provide an amount equivalent to all of the biofuels produced in the U.S.

9. Regulations and Delays: The Obama EPA has added costly new regulations [3] to refineries in the name of global warming, while the Obama Interior Department issues new rules [3] that make it much harder to develop natural resources on government land. The EPA is also denying approval [14] of the Keystone pipeline which would increase the amount of oil the U.S. receives from our friendly neighbor Canada by over a million barrels per day.

10. The Middle East Is Not the Sole Cause of Rising Oil Prices: Global oil prices have been rising steadily for months based on variety of factors including those listed above and as the world economy pulls out of a recession. In fact, Egypt is not a major producer of petroleum, and only 2-3 percent of the world’s supply moves through the Suez Canal. Certain spikes are not abnormal and can be more easily weathered with a smarter domestic energy strategy.

    This week, Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman told Bloomberg Television [15]: “We’re hoping capacity will be brought to bear so it will continue to support our economic recovery.” Mr. Poneman needs to head down his hallway to meet with his boss Secretary Chu and explain how energy prices affect an economic recovery. Because it was Chu who, in the name of environmental radicalism, stated in 2008: “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe [16].” It would seem President Obama and Secretary Chu are getting their wish and you are paying for it every day.

Re: Obama’s War on Wealth...

OBAMA LLEVA U.S. A OTRA GRAN DEPRESION AL ESTILO DE F.D.R

The Age of Obama #fail
June 3, 2011 by David Harsanyi

   Recessions come and go. Typically we emerge with strong sustained growth. Not this time. Today we learned that employers added the fewest jobs in 8 months. Unemployment jumped back to 9.1 percent – and really, the level is 15.8 percent.

   The housing market still stinks, as does other foundations of the economy. The answer from the Democrats has been bailout after bailout, antiquated economic schemes, huge expansion of regulation, calls for higher taxes, attacks on the profit motive, roadblocks to energy production, increasing moral hazard in markets, more crony capitalism, food stamps, dependency, massive new entitlement program, sharing of the prosperity but less new prosperity, the same wars (and more!), but no budget, no spending cuts and little economic hope.

    Ian Murray at The Corner explains:

Today’s much weaker than expected employment numbers show that the president’s agenda of more regulation and increased spending has undoubtedly failed. However much money he throws at the problem, entrepreneurs are not going to start adding jobs to the economy while the burden of regulation is so high. Regulations cost the economy $1.75 trillion each year. It is regulation that is dragging us back to recession.

    And via Business Insider, lays out the legacy of Obama’s Keynesian policies.

     The Age of Obama

 

 

 

This Commie is dangerously stupid

What exactly has this administration done right? What creative ideas have they offered? How many alternative realities (you know, ‘things could have been worse’?) do we have to accept? Fact is, while these condescending technocrats accuse their opponents of being nihilists, ideologues and radicals, they are the ones that refuse to deviate from dogma no matter how much evidence of failure confronts them.

...”The Law”...

"Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole — with their common aim of legal plunder — constitute socialism.

But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.

Then abolish this law without delay, for it is not only an evil itself, but also it is a fertile source for further evils because it invites reprisals. If such a law — which may be an isolated case — is not abolished immediately, it will spread, multiply, and develop into a system.

Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation. This will be no light task.

Re: Obama’s War on Wealth...

STAMENT OF  VALERO EMPLOYEES ON THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE          

 

 

Date:               January 24, 2012      

 

To:                  Valero Employees

        

From:              Bill Klesse

 

Subject:          Keystone XL Pipeline Statement

 

 

As you know, the Obama administration decided last week to deny TransCanada’s application to ship crude oil via the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast. Valero has planned to be a shipper and purchaser of that oil since 2008, and obviously we were disappointed in the decision. We issued a statement in response to questions from the media, and I wanted to share it with you in case you get questions from friends or business partners, and so that you would know why Valero supports the Keystone XL pipeline. This is the statement:

 

Despite the uncertainty and political fighting over the Keystone XL pipeline, Valero has continued to invest in its U.S. refining operation.  In 2011 we spent nearly $3 billion on projects, and for 2012 our capital expenditure budget is over $3 billion. These expenditures are keeping our employees on the job and putting additional people to work.  To reference two of our refineries, at Port Arthur, Texas, we have 1,600 contractors working on an expansion project, and at St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, we have another 1,000 contractors working on a separate project.  We need this kind of economic activity to accelerate to help all Americans.

 

This illustrates why the federal government’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline is so absurd. There are pipelines in every neighborhood all across America. The administration’s decision was not about pipelines, it was about the misguided beliefs that Canadian oil sands development should be stopped and that fossil fuel prices should increase to make alternative energy more attractive. Instead, we should be impressed with how well the oil sands engineering and recovery technology has advanced, and the economic benefits this development brings.  Having more oil available in the marketplace has the potential to lower prices for consumers.  As an independent refiner, Valero buys all of the oil we process. Due to the administration’s misguided policies, refiners like Valero will have to buy more oil from other sources outside the U.S. and Canada. Consumers will bear the additional shipping cost, not to mention the additional greenhouse gas emissions and political risks.

 

With all the issues facing our country, it is absolutely unbelievable our federal government says no to a company like TransCanada that is willing to spend over $7 billion and put Americans to work on a pipeline.  The administration’s decision throws dirt into the face of our closest ally and largest trading partner.

 

The point above is that it is not about pipelines as many pipelines cross the Ogallala Aquifer, in the Great Plains region, and, in fact, there is already significant oil and gas production in the area covered by the aquifer. This is politics at its worst.

 

Thanks for your support.
