The Supercommittee’s Failure: What Really Happened | Power Line

The Supercommittee’s Failure: What Really Happened | Power Line: Finger-pointing is in full swing, but the reality is that the Supercommittee’s failure to come to an agreement on spending reductions is just one chapter in a very long story–the story of the Democratic Party’s absolute refusal to come to grips with the country’s fiscal crisis. Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee have produced this helpful time line, with links to supporting documentation. The story of the Democrats’ ongoing malfeasance needs to be better understood:

Service Employees International Union endorses Obama in 2012

Service Employees International Union endorses Obama in 2012: The 2.1 million-member Service Employees International Union (SEIU) announced on Wednesday its unusually early endorsement of Barack Obama for re-election in 2012. Other than the timing, the statement by SEIU President Mary Kay Henry comes as no surprise, considering the longstanding alliance and increasing integration of the US trade unions into the big business Democratic Party.

'Mini Ponzi Scheme' Takes Down N.J. Democrat Corzine; Networks Forget They Used Him as 'Top' Economic Voice

'Mini Ponzi Scheme' Takes Down N.J. Democrat Corzine; Networks Forget They Used Him as 'Top' Economic Voice: Flashbacks of 2008 were on the minds of many when MF Global, a Wall Street firm led the Democratic former N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine, filed for bankruptcy amid a huge scandal. Forbes said the firm owes $2.2 billion to JP Morgan and Deutsche Banks. But the broadcast networks had amnesia when it came to their previous coverage of Corzine, his role as adviser and fundraiser for Obama and their previous use of him as an economic expert.

'Red Army' Behind Occupy Wall Street? | Fox News

'Red Army' Behind Occupy Wall Street? | Fox News: In the present instance, however, there's an undercurrent moving in the opposite direction, a careful manipulation of participants by a deeply non-democratic band. Behind the current Occupy Wall Street protests is a "red army" of radicals seeking no less than to provoke a new, definitive economic crisis, with their goal being the full collapse of the U.S. financial system, with the ensuing chaos to be rebuilt into a utopian socialist vision.

Comment from Hollywood Reporter

Note to Hollywood "influencers": You've hitched your wagons to a dead horse.

America has had her Marxist president - and her Marxist economics lesson - and she’s had enough.

It no longer matters what the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Time, MSNBC, CNN or even Clueless Comrade Barry himself has to say about anything.

The voters have seen how this president operates and they’ve seen enough.

They watched the Clueless One take over anything he could get his hands on, borrow as much money from the Chinese as they would lend him, pay off every deadbeat Democrat that would line up for a handout, suck up to every anti-American despot who would give him an audience, call everyone who disagreed with any portion of his agenda a racist, clown with every TV talk show host and pose for every frivolous magazine cover that would have him all the while throwing nightly dance parties at the White House as if a newly minted rap star had been anointed President-for-a-Day... all this, of course, when he wasn’t taking his entourage on yet another Air Force One-chauffeured vacation.

Americans have taken a good hard look at Comrade Barry and are now firmly convinced this Marxist miscreant has no business running anything they have a stake in much less holding court in the Oval Office.

Half a billion dollars for the failing solar panel maker Solyndra – after they had already lost more than a half billion dollars and were obviously well on their way to going out of business? Talk about throwing good money after bad.

Here is The Clueless One’s take:

"Companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter, more prosperous future. We can see the positive impacts [of my green jobs program] right here at Solyndra."

Here is the report issued two months earlier from PriceWaterhouseCoopers:

“Solyndra has suffered recurring losses from operations, negative cash flows since inception and has a net stockholders' deficit that, among other factors, raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern."

Somebody here is walking around blind without a cane.

Can we at least agree that Marxist Democrats in general and Clueless Comrade Barry in particular have no business impersonating venture capitalists using the taxpayers’ money?

And then just to ensure that this Regime goes down in history as the most corrupt and inept in history, Comrade Barry’s “Federal Family” thugs raid the iconic American musical instrument manufacturer under the pretense of enforcing an obscure export regulation of the country of Madagascar – a government which the United States currently does not and has not recognized since 2009!

Oh, did we forget to mention that his ATF actually instructed private dealers (over their adamant objections) to sell over 1,000 illegal automatic weapons to the Mexican mafia? What were they trying to do? Fuel an already ongoing epidemic of automatic weapon violence in Mexico and then use claims that the Mexicans were getting their arms from the U.S. as an excuse to disarm Americans?

And now to top it all off, The Debt Man Walking puts up a web site called AttackWatch.com and asks his Useful Idiot followers to report anyone who speaks out against Der Fuhrer.

At least Nixon made up his own “enemies list” and kept it to himself. Dear Leader of Food Stamp Nation is now asking basement-dwelling, unemployed adult children to turn in their parents for failure to drink his brand of Marxist Kool-Aid.

No wonder this country is fed up with The Barackolypse.

“If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem.” – Abraham Lincoln

The first post-American president has succeeded in one thing only… proving that you cannot redistribute your way to prosperity.

The Marxist Democrats are now losing Congressional seats in districts they have held since 1923. That’s 1923 as in but 12 years shy of a century.

It’s Obamageddon for the Marxist Democrats.

You can put a fork in him. Clueless Comrade Barry is done.

Even James Carville now feels the weight of pending doom - his best advice for Clueless Comrade Barry? One word: “PANIC!”

“This is not going well,” Carville says. Gee, ya think?

Even Jeffrey Miron, director of undergraduate studies in the department of economics at that bastion of Eastern liberalism, Harvard University, gets it,

"The anti-business atmosphere in the United States - the dislike of capitalism, the soak the rich attitude that a lot of Democrats seem to be embracing these days; that is the major impediment to businesses wanting to do more investment, do more hiring."

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs...

That's right. This economy is going nowhere until Clueless Comrade Barry, President Zero, Doctor Downgrade, Dear Leader of Food Stamp Nation, The Barackalypse, The Obamageddon, The Debt Man Walking, The Redistributor-in-Chief, The Living Embodiment of the Peter Principle in (Affirmative) Action is relegated to the ash heap of history.

Better hedge your bets Hollywood. Clueless Comrade Barry is headed for cancellation.

California Wages War On Single-Family Homes | Newgeography.com: "In California, the assault on the house has gained official sanction. Once the heartland of the American dream, the Golden State has begun implementing new planning laws designed to combat global warming. These draconian measures could lead to a ban on the construction of private residences, particularly on the suburban fringe. The new legislation’s goal is to cram future generations of Californians into multi-family apartment buildings, turning them from car-driving suburbanites into strap-hanging urbanistas."

Combined with other important protections from the Affordable Care Act, these new rules will help lower insurance costs by moderating premium hikes and provide consumers with greater value for their premium dollar. In 2011, this will mean rate increases of 10-percent or more must be reviewed by state or federal officials."

Agenda 21 Part I: A Global Economic Disaster in the Making # teaparty

Agenda 21 Part I: A Global Economic Disaster in the Making - Big Government: "It is worth mentioning here that Carol Browner, President Obama’s Energy and Environment Czar, also served on the Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, although her name was stripped from the masthead the minute she got that appointment. Hmm."

The Brundtland Commission included Maurice Strong (Canada’s version of George Soros), William Ruckelshaus (first head of the EPA – the only American) and luminaries from such enlightened states as Zimbabwe, Communist China, Russia, Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Cote D’Ivoire.
“Sustainable Development” is a distinctly and entirely socialist idea, and it varies from typical socialist rhetoric only in the metaphors used.
It demands redistribution of land, resources and private property into government hands. One particularly odious quote:
Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings-and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.
