2 for 1 Sale: Bibi Destroys Iran & Obama with One Masterful Speech!

By Wayne Allyn Root

Americans and the world just got a lesson in CHUTZPAH. That’s the Jewish word for balls, bravado, courage, audacity, cajones. No one else in the world could have pulled off what Bibi just did. Talk about a masterful speech. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu walked into a joint session of the U.S. Congress like he owned it. Like he was the President of the United States. He received 29 standing ovations.

He then held court for almost an hour like he was the most powerful man in the world. Like he held the key to saving the world. And just maybe…he does.

Bibi walked onto the biggest stage in America and embarrassed Obama. He schooled him. He took him to the woodshed. And here’s the masterful part- he killed him with kindness! Bibi pulled off a speech ripping America’s president to shreds, in front of the political leadership of America…in front of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi…in front of the American people…and he did like only a master of communication, chutzpah and salesmanship could- by first praising him. By thanking Obama. By showering him with compliments. Then he proceeded to strip him naked and pummel him into submission.

When it was over, I guarantee you that a majority of the American people…at least a majority who watched the speech…would rather have Bibi as President than Obama.  Certainly a majority would sleep sounder at night, would feel safer about the future of their children, with Bibi as President than Obama.

What was the main takeaway of the speech? That you can’t reward bad behavior. That you must punish bad behavior. That you can’t agree to deals with tyrants, terrorists, liars, thieves and murderers whose word cannot be trusted. That no deal is in fact better than a bad deal.

That the only deal worth doing punishes Iran and takes away their nuclear capabilities until they change their behavior…until they stop supporting and funding terrorism…until they stop vowing to annihilate their neighbor Israel and kill all the Jewish people…until they check their aggressive support of militant, radical Islam all over the world. That to allow any nuclear capability for a militant Muslim nation is suicide for the entire world.

Bibi understands three things Obama clearly doesn’t (or does, and doesn’t care because he’s a Muslim sympathizer):

#1) The art of negotiating. Bibi compared negotiating with Iran to negotiating at a Persian bazaar. Hilarious, and so true. “If they threaten to walk away, let them.” Bibi said. “Because they’ll be back.” It takes an Israeli to understand the human nature of Persians. That threat of walking away is just part of a negotiation. Bibi understands that. I understand that. Can Obama be that stupid? Bibi sure made him seem that stupid. But I know Bibi knows what I know. He just can’t say it in public. Obama is not stupid. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s not on Israel’s side. So Bibi had to play a masterful game of chess with Obama. So he painted him as naïve and stupid. He embarrassed him in front of the world. He made it clear the deal Obama has negotiated is Neville Chamberlain all over again. It’s a repeat of the worst deal ever agreed to- Chamberlain’s deal with Hitler.

#2) Secondly, Bibi made it clear that Iran is not a normal country. It shouldn’t be treated like a normal country. It is a militant Islamic country. It is a rogue terrorist state no different than ISIS. Iran is the enemy of ISIS, so Bibi had to make a very interesting point. Iran and ISIS are the same people. They want the same thing. They say it. They tweet it. Iran wrote it in their constitution. They are dedicated to killing, conquering, converting and enslavng first the entire region, then the world. Iran is only fighting ISIS to determine who gets to do it in the name of Allah. Bibi then drove the nail home, “The enemy of your enemy…is your enemy.” Masterful.

#3) Thirdly, Bibi made a simple clear point that the American people can understand. Forget intellectual arguments. Forget the fancy words of lawyers and Ivy Leaguers like Obama, meant to obscure, confuse, distract and deceive the people. Bibi spoke from the heart. He painted a picture of militant radical Muslims like ISIS and how they act- they commit atrocities…they cut off heads…they torture…they throw gays off buildings…they parade prisoners in cages…they set people on fire…they kill women and children…even babies are cut in half and mutilated at the hands of militant radical Muslims. And Obama wants to allow them to possess NUCLEAR WEAPONS? And he thinks that’s okay? He thinks they’ll change? He thinks they’ll stop being angry and aggressive with a nuclear weapon now in their hands? That image ends the debate.

No militant Islamic state can ever be allowed to possess nuclear weapons…or they will certainly use them. No one in the world will be ever again sleep soundly. No one’s children will ever again be safe. People that cut off heads, stone woman for having sex…throw acid in a little girl’s face for wanting to go to school…set fire to a prisoner in a cage…people like that will use a nuclear weapon. Bibi made it clear Obama’s deal with Iran allows them to possess nuclear weapons. It’s only a matter of when. That cannot be allowed to pass.

Even here in Las Vegas, I think I could hear Obama and Valerie Jarrett screaming at the TV set in the White House. Bibi embarrassed them. Thrashed them. Emasculated them. The emperor has no clothes.

By the way, not only is it clear Obama does not like Israel…that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer…that Obama is trying to weaken Israel and put her people in danger…but the ruler of Obama’s White House is Valerie Jarrett. Where was Valerie born? Iran.Obama’s actions and negotiations are no mistake…fluke…coincidence…not done out of naivete. Bibi knows that as well as I do. So he had to deconstruct this president and his Iranian-born svengali in a nice way…in front of the Congress…in Obama’s own house.

Bibi had to kill Obama with kindness. He could not win over the American people by ripping our president in our own home stadium. So he never once named Obama as the bad guy. He never once blamed Obama for a bad deal, or bad negotiations. He never said out loud “Your president is trying to hurt Israel.” But he didn’t have to. We all know.

Bravo Bibi. You just showed us all what a real leader looks like- someone who stands up to evil, instead of negotiating and compromising in the face of another Hitler. Bibi made his point subtly…as subtly as a jackhammer and blowtorch. Best of all, it was a 2 for 1 sale: Bibi destroyed both Iran and Obama with one masterful speech.

2 for the price of 1- why it’s almost like…a Persian bazaar!

My Neighbor Harry Reid

Print Friendly

I am a proud citizen of beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada. I escaped New York for “the Monte Carlo of America”- sunshine all year long, with no personal income taxes, no business income taxes, no capital gains taxes, no inheritance taxes and among the lowest property taxes in America. What does a conservative call a place like that? HEAVEN.

 

But there is one negative. His name is Harry Reid. My United States Senator is perhaps the worst in the history of the U.S. Senate. He’s certainly the worst Senator of my lifetime- the past 53 years. Amazingly, Harry isn’t just my Senator, he’s my neighbor. Harry and I live only a couple of blocks apart in Henderson, Nevada inside beautiful Anthem Country Club. If we made a reality show together, it would be called “The Odd Couple.”

 

From my 2nd story deck I’m looking at Harry’s home. I’m just a stone’s throw away. And sometimes I’m tempted to throw that stone! Just kidding.

 

My illustrious neighbor’s story keeps getting stranger and stranger. Harry gets hurt jogging. Harry gets hurt lifting weights. Harry’s so feeble, in such mental and physical decline, I actually feel sorry for him. I wish him a wonderful retirement. It’s clearly time for golf, grandchildren and cruises to Mexico. But one thing is for sure- Harry Reid cannot continue as one of the leaders of the free world. As the US Senate Majority Leader up until only a few weeks ago, and now the U.S. Senate Minority Leader, Harry is one of the most important and powerful men in this country.

 

But the Harry Reid narrative is getting embarrassing. Poor Harry has reached well beyond his “past due” date as a U.S. Senator. If Harry were an airline pilot he would have been forced to retire a decade ago- long before he started falling down and hurting himself. If he was a Fortune 500 CEO, his Board of Directors would have forcibly retired him years ago. If he were a typical government employee, he’d have retired to a life of leisure at age 50- that was almost three decades ago.

 

So why is Harry allowed to stay in his U.S. Senate seat until the day he dies? He has already announced his intent to run for re-election in 2016. Will Harry be allowed to serve in the Senate while he’s pushed to his seat in a wheelchair and spoon fed by a nurse? If Harry can no longer make decisions for himself, should he be allowed to continue serving  in the U.S. Senate making life and death decisions for every American? Does that make sense? At what age is enough, enough?

 

Shouldn’t a world leader be held to the same standards as a pilot? That pilot has to retire at age 65- even if he’s in perfect mental and physical shape. Why? Because after age 65, people start to fail. Bad things start to happen. We can’t have elderly pilots flying planes with 200 or 300 souls on board when they suffer a stroke, seizure, heart attack, or fall down and can’t get up. We can’t leave it up to the pilot to determine when it’s time to go. One lapse in judgement and people could die. So we institute mandatory retirement. So why would we allow a U.S. Senator who’s actions effect our economy, jobs, taxes and healthcare, to making important decisions, long after his or her “past due” date? Term limits would take that decision out of their hands.

Is Harry Reid capable of making competent decisions at this point? We know for a fact Harry has suffered strokes while in office.

http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/08/19/reid.stroke/index.html?section=cnn_latest

 

He fell down jogging and dislocated his shoulder a couple of years ago.

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/05/harry-reid-fall-jogging-dislocated-shoulder-/1

 

Then on New Years Day Harry had a far more serious episode. http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/02/politics/harry-reid-falls/

 

The claim is he was badly hurt while exercising. He claims to have been using a band-based weight machine when the band snapped, hitting him in the face and knocking him unconscious with severe injuries. He had broken ribs, a concussion and severe eye injuries that threatened the loss of his sight. From exercise?

 

I’m a fitness enthusiast. I understand exercise very well. I work out two to three hours every day, 365 days per year. It’s been the foundation of my life for 38 years. In all those years, I’ve never heard of someone getting a black eye from jogging. In all those years, I’ve also never heard of a serious injury from using an amateurish band-based weight machine.

 

To make matters worse (and more strange) Harry Reid’s staff further disclosed his injury occurred in the bathroom of his home. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nevada/reid-workout-accident-happened-his-bathroom

 

His bathroom? Do you know anyone who lifts weights in the bathroom? The story is just too strange to believe. But either way this is clearly not a man capable of doing one of the most important jobs in our country.

 

Here’s a man who has done great damage to our economy and country as U.S. Senate Majority Leader. He was the chief enabler and water-carrier for the massive expansion of government, spending, taxes, regulation and debt under Obama. Harry Reid enabled Obama to depress the private sector with the most regulations in history; killing millions of jobs; suffocating the middle class; destroying the greatest healthcare system in the world; making the coal industry extinct and blocking the Keystone Pipeline (thereby dramatically raising all of our electric bills); giving amnesty to illegal aliens; and allowing Obama to violate the U.S. Constitution again and again.

 

Harry achieved all this while purposely preventing the U.S. Senate from voting on any bill that might help the economy, or undue the damage of Obama’s socialist Nanny State policies. Harry refused to allow bills to be voted on, for fear of hurting the re-election campaigns of his fellow Democratic Senators. He even presided over “the nuclear option” that he swore he’d never allow to pass- for the first time in history allowing bills and appointments to pass the Senate with merely a simple majority.

 

Term Limits would have forced Reid out of the Senate before much of this damage was ever done. What a blessing that would have been for America and the U.S. economy.

 

Now add in Reid’s declining health and fading ability to competently take care of himself, let alone the country…and you have a clear recipe for disaster. Harry Reid is indeed the poster child for Term Limits.

 

From now on I’d suggest “the Harry Reid Rule:” All politicians should be limited to two terms. One term in office. And one term in prison.

Celebrating Obama for the New Year!

Print Friendly

I am Obama’s college classmate from Columbia University, Class of ’83. Back in 1981 when my Columbia classmates heard my hero President Ronald Reagan had been shot, they erupted in joy. They celebrated by jumping up and down, cheering, hugging, and giving each other high-fives. They screamed, “YES! Reagan is dead. They got the bastard!” I witnessed it all, first hand. My radical leftist classmates thought a conservative legend was dead and this was cause for celebration. I remember thinking, “they are celebrating like it’s New Year’s Eve.” Afterall that’s what you do on New Years- celebrate!

That memory inspired me to write a column celebrating Obama here in the New Year 2015. Let’s not rehash the bad stuff…the disastrous stuff…the tragic stuff…the decline and perhaps even death of America at the hands of a radical Big Brother tyrant. That’s not the way to celebrate New Years. Let’s look at the bright side. You know- the glass is half full.

You might ask “What is the positive side of the Obama presidency?” Well there are a few groups that should celebrate.

For my fellow constitutional and second amendment patriots, Obama is the greatest gun salesman in history. Over 70 million guns have been purchased since Obama took office. This man opens his mouth, reads from the teleprompter, and INSTANTLY Americans are inspired to buy all-time record quantities of guns and ammo. If you’re a fan of the second amendment (or a gun dealer), Obama has been the answer to your prayers.

For my fellow fiscal conservatives and capitalists, Obama is the greatest gold salesman ever. Conservatives love gold. Gold after all is the antidote to a debt crisis and lack of confidence in a reckless or incompetent government. That’s why record sums of gold were bought during the past 6 years. Central bankers worldwide bought more gold in one recent year than in half a century (since 1964). Fiscal conservatives (and gold dealers) rejoice. Obama is a walking billboard for God, guns, and GOLD!

Obama is also the greatest thing to ever happen to print shop owners. While the rest of us are struggling to keep our heads above water, print shop owners can’t keep up with the demand for “Going Out of Business” and “Home For Sale by Bank” signs. And what about all the protest signs funded by communist groups announcing “What Do We Want? DEAD COPS.” Print shop owners Rejoice! You’ve never had it so good.

And then there are “English as a Second Language” teachers. There may be very few good jobs left in Obama’s America, but if you speak both English and Spanish, the sky is the limit. With the border wide open and Obama announcing amnesty for illegals, celebrate if you are a teacher of “English as a Second Language.” You have the most in-demand job in America for decades to come. Unfortunately, demand for prison guards may soon be even more in demand.

Obama is the greatest thing to ever happen to government bureaucrats. The future is bright if your goal is to sit in a windowless office handing out checks for welfare, food stamps, disability and unemployment, while complaining you are overworked and underpaid. With almost 20% of all Americans on food stamps alone, there’s enough work for you to last a lifetime…or at least 20 years, until you retire at age 45 and collect an obscene pension for the next 40 to 50 years for not working.

And what about the boom in basements! With Obama and his socialist cabal in control for another two years, basements are the new hip living space for young adults. At this moment 31% of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 live with their parents. Obama’s high taxes and massive regulations guarantee millions of college graduates will either stay unemployed, or underemployed in low wage jobs, forcing them to live in mommy and daddy’s basement for years to come. Basements are no longer lonely dusty places to store old furniture. In the age of Obama, they are where you store your 30 year old unemployed children.

Pharmaceutical companies are celebrating. A record 30 million Americans are dependent on anti-depressants. There would be many more, except millions of depressed Americans self-medicate with alcohol. If you sell drugs or booze, give a shout out this New Years to Obama, the greatest salesman for your products ever!

And then, of course there are the cop haters who are celebrating. To think you used to be misunderstood, hated pariahs. Today you are in favor- with Obama praising you for hating cops. He encourages you to protest, loot, burn and act like exactly what you are- idiots who have no interest in getting a job. But, no worry, this New Years you can come out of the closet, celebrate, and be openly YOU!

Unfortunately the rest of us are hiding in the closet, because you’re on the streets.

If you’re a radical Muslim terrorist, or just someone who sympathizes with radical Muslims (i.e. a Democrat) – CELEBRATE! Obama is the best thing to ever happened to you. Under Obama America has become a politically correct shell of its former self. Rest easy. No more “enhanced interrogations.” And if you’re caught, you’ll live like a king at Guantanamo, provided with a Koran, prayer rug, religiously approved food, basketball courts, and expensive lawyers. Then once you are rested up, you’ll be released back to the battlefield, ready to again cut off heads and slaughter women and little children. Obama is the best thing that ever happened to you.

If you’re Fidel and Raul Castro, celebrate Obama. By opening relations and trade, Obama saved Cuba from economic collapse and the certain death of communism. He asked for nothing in return. You get to remain a communist nation, jail your political opposition, steal the people’s income, while enjoying the prosperity that comes from doing business with America’s biggest companies. Celebrate Obama- the savior of communism- on New Years Day!

Finally we come to Vladamir Putin. He’s celebrating “like it’s 1999” this New Years. God handed him “the gift of a lifetime” in the form of Barack Obama. Obama pulled off a miracle for Putin and the Russian people. He made your bankrupt, decaying country look like a world power again. Not economically of course…but militarily. The collapse in the price of oil will wreak havoc on Russia’s economy. Even Obama can’t change that. But he made Putin significant, a leader on the world stage. He gave Russia’s demoralized military swagger again. Obama managed to put Mother Russia in the driver’s seat and America in the back seat.

The only question is…is this a coincidence, or was this Obama’s plan all along?

Yes, there’s certainly a lot to celebrate this New Years. Unfortunately it’s the enemies of America, American Exceptionalism, the American Dream, Judeo Christian Values, capitalism and cops who are doing most of the celebrating.

For the rest of us it’s two long years until we can celebrate “Obama-Free America.”

Is the New York Times Guilty of Attempted Murder?

Print Friendly

By Wayne Allyn Root

The New York Times recently published the home address of Police Officer Darren Wilson and his pregnant police officer wife. Once they were publicly ridiculed for this reckless action, the paper took down the story, but inexplicably left up the name of Darren Wilson’s street address.

Is the New York Times trying to incite murder? How could any respectable journalist publish the address of a police officer, knowing there are thousands of violent criminals who’d like to kill him? Why would a newspaper purposely make Officer Wilson a “marked man?” If someone kills Officer Wilson or his pregnant police officer wife…or mistakenly kills an entire family living in the home next door…isn’t the New York Times liable? Isn’t this a billion dollar lawsuit? Have liberals lost their minds (and their judgement)?

This time they’ve gone too far. And it’s time to teach our friends at the New York Times a lesson- because this type of reckless, dangerous behavior by the media cannot go unpunished. I think I have the answer. A three-pronged attack is necessary to insure this never happens again.

First, Officer Wilson and his new wife should announce a billion dollar lawsuit against the New York Times. That will send a strong message. Don’t wait for someone to get killed. That’s murder. But in this case, the New York Times is inciting attempted murder. They need to be punished now- before something very bad happens. Let all of the liberal media be put on notice. If you play with fire, you will get burned. Hit ‘em where it hurts- in the wallet. If all goes well in court, Police Officer Wilson could wind up owing the “old grey lady.”

Second, we need laws in the states of New York and Missouri to prevent this terrible situation from every happening again. In California it is a crime for anyone (media or otherwise) to publicly print the home address of a police officer. http://www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/pdf/lta10050.pdf. But it’s not a crime in New York or Missouri- yet. This has to change, before someone gets killed. If this horrible breach of ethics occurred on California soil, the two New York Times reporters, their editor and publisher would be “perp walked” out of the newspaper building in handcuffs. That should be happening right now in New York.

Third, isn’t what’s good for the goose, good for the gander? Isn’t turnaround fair play? Suppose a team of angry police detectives decides to do a little research and they print the home address of the Times reporters and entire executive team of the New York Times. What would the New York Times think about that? Some would say it’s “fair play” for the hunters to become the hunted.

Maybe it would do the staff of the New York Times some good to feel the same pain and fear as Police Officer Darren Wilson and his pregnant wife. Remember a grand jury of his peers looked at all the evidence (for many months) and decided Officer Wilson was an innocent man, acting in self-defense. They were given four charges to contemplate.

The grand jury could have chosen any of them- including the lowest level of criminal charges. This jury of Ferguson citizens (three of them African American) knew if they chose no charges they could wind up starting a riot that would burn down their own town. They knew they themselves could become marked men and women. Yet they still chose no charges. It was that clear to them that Officer Wilson was an innocent man. 100% innocent. They couldn’t live with themselves if they charged an innocent man with murder, in order to satisfy the lynch mob waiting outside the courthouse.

et into this fray dropped the New York Times. Has the New York Times become judge, jury and executioner? Is it the media’s role to incite mob violence?

“The old grey lady” has stepped over a line. Either the people running the New York Times are reckless…mentally unstable…or liberals have decided it’s “fair” to incite lynch mobs to maim, murder or burn down the home of innocent police officers involved in race-based shootings.

Either way, the New York Times obviously needs a change of ownership. Officer Darren Wilson is now retired and looking for a new career. My hope is that we are still a nation of laws, not of mob violence. If so, I’m rooting for a court of law to make Darren Wilson the new owner/publisher of the New York Times.

Oh and Darren…if you’re looking for a Executive Editor…you know where to find me.

Lessons From Ferguson–From a Middle Class White Guy

Print Friendly

By Wayne Allyn Root

What do I know? I’m just a middle class white guy. I was raised to respect property…respect police… never say “F—the police”…never desecrate the American flag…never burn down stores in my own neighborhood… love my country…believe in the “American Dream”…study hard, get straight A’s, work hard and good things will happen. And funny enough, my life has worked out pretty well.

Maybe there’s a lesson there for the Ferguson protestors.

I’ve watched the proceedings in Ferguson from August until the verdict was read on Monday night. I watched on Monday night as the Ferguson crowd rioted…set a police car on fire…set buildings on fire…fired shots at police…threw bottles and stones at police…and attacked small businesses.

And to me- the lessons of Ferguson are crystal clear.

First, if the verdict had gone the other way (against the police officer) and angered law-and-order conservatives like me, conservatives wouldn’t have rioted, or thrown bottles, or burned our neighborhoods down. We don’t do things like that. We have too much respect for law and order and property rights. We also own homes and businesses, so we have too much to lose. Maybe the people protesting and rioting should learn a lesson here. Liberals and media elites will say “people riot and loot because they have nothing.” I believe the opposite is true- people have nothing, because they riot and loot. It’s their attitude that causes them to have nothing in life.

Secondly, it’s not smart to burn down your own community. The rest of the world stops feeling sorry for you and just wants to avoid you. The stores you’re burning or looting are often owned by blacks, or other minority small business owners. They will be forced to leave and never come back. The rest of the world won’t dare replace them- who’d want to invest in a neighborhood where people burn, destroy or rob their own community businesses.

Third, I was taught by my father that when a cop stops you or asks you a question, hand over your ID and say “Yes sir” or “No sir.” Respond politely, with respect. That could be why no policeman has ever hurt me, shot me, or killed me…or anyone I’ve ever known. If you choose to curse, or shove, or punch, or struggle with a man with a badge and gun, there is a strong likelihood you’re going to wind up injured or dead. So instead of complaining about racism…or protesting…or rioting…how about saying “Yes sir” or “No sir.” Then you won’t have anything to protest or riot about.

Fourth, open your eyes and mind to the truth, not liberal media propaganda. Millions of people are surprised, saddened and shocked by the Ferguson grand jury’s verdict. Really? Why? My educated guess about the case…within days of the incident…published here at Blaze…from simply taking the time to look at the facts in multiple media…left me convinced the officer had probable cause to stop Michael Brown…probably knew (or quickly figured out) that Brown was the suspect in the strong-armed robbery of a convenience store nearby… struggled in the car with Brown, where a gun went off…ran from the officer…then Brown decided to turn around and charge the officer…who clearly felt his life was in danger and responded in self defense. Those were my educated guesses from the first days after the shooting. http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/i-stand-with-police-officer-darren-wilson-2/

The prosecutor (and jury verdict) just declared all of my original gut instincts to be fact. How did I know all of that, back in August? I educated myself. I read. I listened. I watched. I wasn’t biased. It was all right there for anyone to see…back then. I predicted the police officer would never be indicted…back then. This is not brain surgery. You only have to have common sense…think for yourself…and ignore rabble-rousers trying to stir up trouble and profit from crisis and racial strife…like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the Black Panthers.

The truth isn’t black or white. It isn’t conservative or liberal. It’s based on evidence and fact. It was clear to me the police officer was justified from the first days after the shooting.

The last lesson is the most important. The Ferguson verdict is nothing but a WMD- Weapon of Mass Distraction. It pales in comparison to really important developments like Obama violating the Constitution and breaking the rule of law by ignoring Congress, checks and balances, and the will of the people to issue amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants (ie criminals); the words of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber indicating deception, misrepresentation and fraud were used to sell Obamacare; and plans for 3,415 new federal regulations are being publicly announced on Thanksgiving eve when no one is paying attention. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/24/white-house-quietly-releases-plans-for-3415-regulations-ahead-thanksgiving/?intcmp=latestnews

Michael Brown’s death is a tragedy for the Brown family. But it has very little effect on the daily life of the rest of us. But 3000 new federal regulations will damage business, kill jobs and dramatically raise consumers’ costs and energy bills…thereby driving the economy off a cliff. That’s the real tragedy.

The big lesson of Ferguson is…use common sense and keep your eyes on the things that really matter in your life- like your job, or your health insurance. Oh and don’t charge at an armed policeman. But hey, I guess I’m just a middle class white guy. What do I know?

GOP LANDSLIDE: REVENGE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

I was the first political commentator in the country to predict a GOP landslide in Tuesday’s election. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/09/happy-anniversary-obamacare-youre-gift-that-keeps-on-giving I described the predicted GOP landslide as “massive and historic.” http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/massive-historic-gop-landslide-is-coming 

I stuck with the prediction even in the face of the Wall Street Journal front page story on Tuesday (Election Day) reporting on races across the country tightening.

Tuesday’s results literally define “massive and historic.” The GOP needed to win six U.S. Senate seats. It looks like they’ve won a remarkable nine (with a comfortable lead in Alaska and a projected win in the December Louisiana runoff). The 12 House seats won by the GOP now expands the GOP majority to historic levels. 

But there are more highlights. The GOP destroyed Jimmy Carter’s grandson in Georgia’s Governor race. Governor Scott Walker was re-elected in Wisconsin despite tens of millions spent by unions across the country. The GOP elected Governors in deep, deep blue states like Illinois, Massachusetts and Maryland. Obama himself campaigned for the Democrat Governor candidate Anthony Brown in Maryland. The man that some in the media called “mini Obama” went down to a stunning defeat. Michelle Obama campaigned for Senator Mark Pryor in Arkansas. He lost big time in the same state where he won 79% of the vote only six years ago. Hillary and Bill campaigned all over the country- almost every candidate they supported was wiped out (only Senator Sheehan in New Hampshire won). And the defeat of a Democratic Governor in the President’s home state hasn’t happened since 1892. When I predicted “massive and historic,” I might have understated the results!

So what happened? How did I know what was about to transpire?

This was a total rejection, repudiation and condemnation of everything Obama believes in. This was middle class America telling Obama to shove it where the sun don’t shine. I wrote the national bestseller, “The Murder of the Middle Class” pointing out what Obama and his socialist cabal were doing to America, capitalism and the great American middle class. What we all just witnessed was a middle class uprising. This was THE REVENGE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS. 

What woke the sleeping giant? What caused the middle class to rise up against Obama? In my previous commentaries I explained that the root of Obama’s election day debacle would be the Obama lies about the economy and the twin disasters of Obamacare and Ebola.

Let’s start with the economy. Obama constantly repeats the lie that the “economy is improving” and “we are in recovery.” But middle class America knows otherwise. The election results prove middle class voters are no longer buying Obama’s lies or the government’s manipulated economic statistics. In exit polls 70% of voters said the economy is bad, versus 30% that called it “improving.”

Then there’s the centerpiece of this middle class economic disaster known as “Obamacare.” Millions of Americans have either seen their health insurance cancelled, or gotten dramatic premium price increases. These were the angry, intense, motivated voters of the 2014 midterm elections. This was a vote to gain revenge on the man who promised “If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance.”

Then there’s Ebola. Obama’s response to this potential deadly pandemic has ranged from inept and incompetent, to downright dangerous. Look no further than the new Ebol Czar, who has no medical background and who has never been seen again since the day his appointment was announced. Maybe he’s in quarantine? Ebola made it clear to angry middle class Americans that our president is not keeping our children safe at night. I always believed that Ebola was simply “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Ebola may have so far only killed one person in America, but it just killed the entire Democratic Party.

But the reality is elections aren’t won or lost just based on issues. Elections are won based on “the ground game.” It’s not who supports a candidate or party that matters…it’s who brings the most voters to the polls. Back in 2012 Obama put together the most sophisticated “ground game” to get out the Democratic vote in the history of American politics.

The GOP failed miserably at the same “ground game.” The GOP actually had no ground game. Their new “get out the vote” system (named ORCA) bombed on the morning of the national election- meaning the GOP never turned out a single vote. http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/11/meet-orca-romneys-stcentury-turnout-program-that-wasnt-149186.html

The failure of the GOP vote tracking system changed the outcome of the entire presidential election. Having no idea if your most loyal voters have gone to the polls or not, is like flying a plane blind.

Fast forward to today. Two crucial political developments have changed in favor of the GOP. These are the two concrete reasons for the GOP landslide:

First, the GOP is now for the first time effectively competing with the Obama machine in the “ground game.” The GOP turn-out-the-vote machine was so effective this time around that the GOP actually pulled even with Democrats or led in early voting in places where Republicans often lose by large percentages. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/in-a-first-republicans-claim-early-vote-lead-in-iowa/article/2555159

This is very good news. As a matter of fact it had never happened before. Republicans always lose the early voting, then desperately try to play “catch-up” on Election Day. No more. 

Second, there are now Voter ID laws in place in fifteen states where none existed in 2012. And in 22 states where none existed in 2010. http://www.brennancenter.org/analysis/state-voting-2014

Not only are Democrats great at getting out the vote, they are even better at getting out fraudulent voters. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/31/NC-Board-of-Elections-Investigating-Allegations-of-Campaign-Worker-Assisting-Illegal-Immigrant-to-Vote Voter ID prevents election fraud. That is very bad news for Obama and his allies moving forward. 

Tuesday’s “massive and historic” GOP landslide will usher in a dramatic change in political power in Washington DC. The question is what will the GOP do with it? 

The answers to that question will determine the future of the Republican Party…American politics…and America itself. There is so much to do. Let’s get to work.

Enjoy GOP Landslide Today

By Wayne Allyn Root

I was the first political commentator in the country to predict a GOP landslide in today’s Congressional elections. I made the prediction at Fox News http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/09/happy-anniversary-obamacare-youre-gift-that-keeps-on-giving

and right here at Blaze in early October. http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/massive-historic-gop-landslide-is-coming/

Polls now confirm a GOP wave emerging http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/gop-surge-midterms-iowa/2014/11/03/id/604823/

and even Democrat pollsters are now predicting a devastating loss for Obama and his policies.

The million dollar question is “why?”

In my previous commentaries I explained that the root of Obama’s election day debacle were the twin disasters of Obamacare and Ebola. Millions of Americans have either seen their health insurance cancelled, or gotten dramatic premium price increases. These are the angry, intense, motivated voters of the 2014 midterm elections. Obamacare is no longer a theory. It has affected millions of middle class Americans in a negative way.

Then there’s Ebola. Obama’s response to this potential deadly pandemic has ranged from inept and incompetent, to downright dangerous. It’s clear this president is not keeping our children safe at night.

Now throw in our open Southern border, Obama’s failure to forsee the rise of ISIS, his lack of a coherent strategy to fight ISIS and this jobless economy and anyone but a Washington DC insider can clearly see a Democratic Party disaster in today’s election.

But the reality is that elections aren’t won or lost just based on issues. Elections are won based on “the ground game.” It’s not who supports a candidate or party that matters…it’s who brings the most voters to the polls. Back in 2012 Obama put together the most sophisticated “ground game” to get out the Democratic vote in the history of American politics.

The GOP failed miserably at the same “ground game.” The GOP actually had no ground game. Their new “get out the vote” system (named ORCA) bombed on the morning of the national election- meaning the GOP never turned out a single vote. http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/11/meet-orca-romneys-stcentury-turnout-program-that-wasnt-149186.html

The failure of the GOP vote tracking system changed the outcome of the entire presidential election. Having no idea if your most loyal voters have gone to the polls or not, is like flying a plane blind.

Fast forward to today. Three things have changed- all in favor of the GOP. These are the real reasons for today’s GOP landslide:

*First, the GOP is now for the first time effectively competing with the Obama machine in the “ground game.” The GOP turn out the vote machine is so effective this time around that the GOP leads across the country in early voting in places where Republicans often lose by large percentages. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/in-a-first-republicans-claim-early-vote-lead-in-iowa/article/2555159

This is very good news. As a matter of fact it has never happened before.

*Second, there are Voter ID laws in place in fifteen states where none existed in 2012. http://www.brennancenter.org/analysis/state-voting-2014

Not only are Democrats great at getting out the vote, they are even better at getting out fraudulent voters. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/31/NC-Board-of-Elections-Investigating-Allegations-of-Campaign-Worker-Assisting-Illegal-Immigrant-to-Vote Voter ID prevents election fraud. That is very bad news for Obama and his allies.

*Third, there is a “backstop” in place if the GOP fails to win the six U.S. Senate seats it needs today. Because of tight races there could be runoffs in Louisiana and Georgia (if the winning GOP candidate doesn’t reach the 50% threshold). But Obama and the Democrats have a big problem in these runoffs. Obama pushed back the date for open enrollment in Obamacare from October 15th to November 15th just to avoid damaging Democratic candidates in today’s election. http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/30/poll-americans-think-obama-admins-playing-politics-by-delaying-obamacare-sign-ups-until-after-election

But Obama’s plan backfired. Because of this cynical delay, millions of Americans will be either getting cancellation notices or seeing massive price increases for the first time in the days after the election. But that “sticker shock” will guarantee the voters of Georgia and Louisiana will vote overwhelmingly Republican in December or January runoffs. This is “the GOP backstop.”

Ironically Obama’s signature (and only) achievement of his six years as President will guarantee a GOP takeover of the U.S. Senate.

Tonight will usher in a dramatic rebuke to President Obama and a dramatic change in political power in Washington DC. The question is what will the GOP do with it?

Will they repeal Obamacare in order to save the economy from a meltdown? Will they cut government spending to avoid a Greece-like debt crisis? Will they audit the Fed? Will they conduct criminal hearings and punish those involved in the outrageous IRS scandal? Will they dramatically lower the highest corporate tax rates in the world, thereby bringing jobs back to America? Will they put a stop to NSA snooping on the communications of ordinary Americans? Will they seal the border? Will they force Obama top finally ban flights from the Ebola Zone and quarantine travelers from Ebola countries? Will they stop Obama from ordering a “blanket amnesty” for millions of illegal immigrants? Will they force Obama to develop a gameplan to defeat ISIS?

The answers to these questions will determine the future of American politics. The GOP has been handed “the golden ticket.” They now have that rare second chance in politics. The ball is in their court. They can ensure that Barack Obama has singlehandedly destroyed the Democratic Party for a generation. But only if the GOP is bold enough to carry out the agenda above, and fight Obama’s continued destruction of America with passion, fire and brimstone. If the GOP is too cowardly to pursue the agenda above, or too fearful of how the mainstream media will react, then the GOP landslide of 2014 is nothing more than a fluke and “last gasp” amidst a long term Democratic ascendency.

 

How Ebola Killed Democratic Party

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

Hi I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Obama doesn’t seem concerned about Ebola. He won’t seal the border. He won’t ban flights from the Ebola Zone. He named an “Ebola Czar” who knows nothing about healthcare. He sent 4000 U.S. military troops into harm’s way in the Ebola Zone. Now a GOP Congressman claims plans are underway to bring non-American Ebola victims to the U.S. for treatment. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/28/lawmaker-claims-plans-may-be-in-pipeline-to-bring-non-citizens-to-us-for-ebola/

 

Americans are fed up. They’ve had enough. Obama’s incompetence, ignorance, mental instability, or callous disregard for the health of the American people is the talk of the country (outside of Washington DC).

 

The irony is that while Ebola has so far done very little damage to the American people (with only one person in America dead), Ebola’s chief victim appears to be President Obama and the Democratic Party. Obama’s response to Ebola has finally convinced the electorate that Obama is dangerous to our health. Ebola has finally shifted the electorate away from Obama and his Democratic Party. People finally understand the emperor has no clothes. The result is clear- a Republican landslide is forming.

 

How bad will the coming election results be for Obama and Democrats?

 

The GOP is on the cusp of another historic landslide- similar to the one I predicted publicly in 2010. http://www.rootforamerica.com/webroot/oldblog/index.php?m=10&y=10&entry=entry101027-115514

 

Back then, I predicted the GOP would win 50 to 60 Congressional seats. The experts said I was out of my mind. The GOP won 63 seats.

It was the biggest landslide in almost a century. Ironically it was all based on a fear of Obamacare. http://www.conservapedia.com/2010_Midterm_Elections

 

This time polls suggest the results on November 4th will be even worse than 2010. Polls show generic Republican Congressional candidates leading by more than four years ago. This time the results are based on the real-life results of Obamacare, combined with a fear of the healthcare scare of our lifetime- Ebola. http://www.washingtonpost.com/page/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2014/10/28/National-Politics/Polling/release_371.xml

 

How bad is this coming landslide? CNN reports that Democrats are trailing badly even in Massachusetts.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/24/politics/coakely-boston-globe-poll/index.html?hpt=po_c2

 

Democrats will be wiped out. It’s all breaking wrong for Obama and the Democrats. Want proof? Here’s a reality more telling than polls.

 

It’s Fall. Leaves are changing color. That means political campaign time. Congress is up for re-election. This is always when presidents are criss-crossing the nation campaigning full-time for their candidates. But something strange is happening this year. There’s no president in sight. Obama is so invisible there are rumors he’s in the Witness Protection Program.

 

 

Democratic candidates are making believe Obama has never existed. Yes, I said Democrats. His Democrats. The same Democrats who supported his policies. The same Democrats who passed his policies. The same Democrats that proudly took credit for “saving” the economy. The same Democrats who took credit for “saving” healthcare. The same Democrats who promised to “chase ISIS to the gates of hell.”

 

That was of course before they went door to door in their districts and found out from their own constituents that the economy hasn’t been saved, healthcare has been ruined and ISIS is laughing at and mocking Obama.

 

Now those same Democrats…Obama’s brothers and sisters in socialist policy…are on the run from Obama like he’s contagious. The medical term might be “loser’s disease.” They don’t want Obama anywhere near them. Not on the stage with them. Not in a photo. Not in the same city. Not in the same state. Obama is as toxic as Ebola…to Democrats!

 

Even Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman won’t answer questions about the President. What’s the matter Debbie, cat got your tongue? http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2014-10-22/dnc-chairwoman-evades-questions-about-obama

 

Suddenly Democratic allies of Obama claim they’ve never met Obama. They’ve never been in the same room as Obama. They’ve never heard of Obama. They’re diving off stages like trained acrobats to avoid appearing in a picture with Obama. They won’t even admit they ever voted for Obama. “Obama who?”

 

It’s like a real-life version of Jimmy Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Obama is alive and he gets to actually watch a world where people claim he’s never existed. To Democrats the last six years never happened. Amazing.

 

Even the New York Times is commenting publicly about it. The Times lamented in a recent editorial that only one Democratic Senate candidate in the whole country (Gary Peters of Michigan) is willing to be pictured next to Obama anywhere in the country. Most won’t even admit they voted for him (see Alison Grimes of Kentucky). The Times is aghast. “Why aren’t they defending his policies?” the NY Times asks in shock and dismay. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/22/opinion/alison-lundergan-grimes-kay-hagan-and-other-candidates-avoid-obama.html?_r=0

 

Could it be because in the real world Obama’s economic policies, healthcare policies, Ebola policies and foreign policies are all failing miserably? Could it be because the American middle class finally understands that the biggest danger to America’s future is sitting in the White House?

 

Thank goodness Ebola has not exploded into a pandemic inside America…yet. But make no mistake- Ebola is deadly. And there are certainly two high-profile victims: Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.

 

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I’ll see you next week- after the great Republican landslide of 2014. God Bless America.

 

Is Obama in Witness Protection Program?

It’s time for a new question: “Where in the world is Obama?” Because the President of the United States is missing. Gone. Disappeared. AWOL.

 

Obama is so invisible, it’s likely no one would notice if he’d been kidnapped. The real question is, would the Secret Service even notice?

 

It’s Fall. That means political campaign time. Congress is up for re-election. This is always when presidents are criss-crossing the nation campaigning full-time for their candidates.

Could it be because in the real world Obama’s economy and healthcare system are failing? That’s something no one on the Upper East Side of Manhattan would know about.

 

Even Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman won’t answer questions about the President, or if even her candidates should campaign on his policies. http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2014-10-22/dnc-chairwoman-evades-questions-about-obama

 

What’s the matter Debbie? Cat got your tongue?

 

What does all of this mean? It means the GOP is about to win another historic landslide- similar to the one I predicted publicly in 2010. http://www.rootforamerica.com/webroot/oldblog/index.php?m=10&y=10&entry=entry101027-115514

Another historic tidal wave is coming in November. Democrats will be wiped out. It’s all breaking wrong for Obama and the Democrats.

 

And if these poor confused distraught Democrats don’t understand why, just ask any middle class voter in your district about jobs, the economy, Obamacare, ISIS, Ebola and a wide open border leaving America wide open to poverty, debt, disease and terrorism. It’s that simple.

 

That’s why Obama has joined the Witness Protection Program.

WHAT’S MORE TOXIC TO AMERICA- EBOLA OR OBAMA?

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

From my commentaries the last few weeks, you know I’m concerned about a potential Ebola pandemic inside America. Nonetheless Ebola is a worry about a potential problem. A theoretical problem. No one knows yet how much damage Ebola can do to America.

 

On the other hand, we have already experienced the damage, destruction and pain of Obama. Let’s compare Ebola to Obama.

 

Ebola- so far, 1 dead and 2 nurses infected.

 

Obama- almost 50 million Americans on food stamps, 108 million on welfare or other entitlement programs, an all-time record number on disability. Over $3.7 trillion has been spent on welfare over the past five years under Obama. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/report-us-spent-37-trillion-welfare-over-last-5-years_764582.html

 

Ebola- the healthcare, decantamination and security costs for Ebola are frightening. Each patient could cost in excess of $1 million to treat. But so far there are only a handful of patients. Ebola is with us for weeks, or months. Then it’s gone.

 

Obama- the $7 trillion in debt added by Obama (so far) will cause decades of pain for American consumers and taxpayers,  damage middle class quality of life, and reduce U.S. economic growth for many generations to come.

 

Ebola- threatens to damage various sectors of the economy, but no one knows how bad it might be.

 

Obama- already destroyed economy. Over 92 million working age Americans are not working. There are 10 million less Americans working than day Obama took office (even though the population is dramatically higher). We now have the lowest workforce participation rate in recorded history.

 

Ebola- this dreadful virus might overwhelm US healthcare system and result in higher health insurance premiums to pay for the massive cost.

 

Obama- no guesswork needed. The facts are in. Obamacare has already wrecked the U.S. healthcare system and dramatically increased our premium costs. Premiums were up more in the past year than in the prior eight years COMBINED. But the worst is yet to come- rates are going even higher (over 60% in Seattle for example). And millions of cancellation notices are going out in the next few weeks.

 

Ebola- this virus has no known interaction with the IRS. It never came after me personally.

 

Obama- used IRS to try to destroy conservative donors and critics. I’m a witness. The White House clearly ordered the IRS to try to destroy me not once, but twice. Judicial Watch demanded the IRS hand over all documents related to my case. The IRS had 30 days- BY LAW- to comply. That was 15 months ago. The IRS has broken the law of the United States for well over a year to coverup for the crimes of Obama.

 

Ebola- doesn’t sell guns to anyone.

 

Obama- in the “Fast and Furious scandal” the Obama administration sold guns to Mexican drug lords that killed over 200 Mexican citizens- plus a US border agent. So far that’s 200 more deaths than Ebola has caused in  North America.

 

Ebola- doesn’t trade deserters for 5 Jihadi terrorist murderers.

 

Obama- demoralizes U.S. military by making that unimaginable trade; cuts size of military dramatically; sends 4000 troops into Ebola Zone (with only 4 hours of Ebola training); and purges more generals than any president in history.

 

Ebola- never infected a single person at the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

 

Obama- allegedly traded arms to Muslim rebels that led to deaths of 4 American heroes at Benghazi; ignored pleas from our Ambassador for more security; denied a rescue mission while our heroes were under vicious attack; then covered up the tragedy by blaming it on obscure movie no one in Middle East ever watched.

 

Ebola- doesn’t steal my money or regulate me out of business.

 

Obama- put in place the single biggest tax increase (Obamacare) in history. http://reason.com/archives/2012/07/09/yes-actually-obamacare-is-the-biggest-ta

 

Worse, he has proposed the most tax increases in history that never passed- 442. http://www.atr.org/obama-has-proposed-442-tax-hikes-taking-office

 

Worst of all, Obama is the #1 regulator in U.S. history.http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/14/regulation-nation-new-study-finds-obama-is-no-1-regulator/

 

Ebola- so far has not affected the border.

 

Obama- has crippled border security. He has left our Southern border completely unsecured from massive waves of illegal immigrants desperate for cradle to grave entitlements; diseases like TB, Enterovirus and of course Ebola; and terrorist cells who could cross our wide open border and unleash a devastating 9-11-style attack on U.S. soil.

 

Ebola- so far poses no threat to Israel and has left the Middle East untouched.

 

Obama- his policies have endangered the security of Israel, and led to the “Arab Spring” that toppled dictators friendly to America, leaving the Middle East under attack from radical groups like ISIS.

 

Add it up.

 

Ebola is a terrible threat. But so far, it is only a threat.

 

Obama is toxic. Obama has had a devastating effect upon America’s economy, healthcare system, national interests and reputation across the globe.

 

Ebola might give us a punch in gut.

 

Obama could be fatal.
