The Smoking Gun That Ties the IRS Scandal to Obama and Democratic Party

Print Friendly



By Wayne Allyn Root


The IRS scandal just won’t go away- kind of like Watergate. The media knew about Watergate for many months, wrote about it, it simmered, it boiled, then it turned into a bigger-than-life scandal that destroyed Nixon’s presidency. Could that be a repeat of how the Obama IRS scandal is playing out?


Up until now, no one has been able to physically tie the IRS scandal to the Obama White House or the Democratic Party. That just changed.


We’ve seen in the media that 6,400 of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s missing emails have been found.


We’ve seen in the media that the IRS is once again trampling on the rights of taxpayers by dramatically cutting back on customer service, while lavishing IRS employees with bonuses.


We’ve seen in the media that the IRS is back to its old tricks, still trying to hurt conservative fundraising organizations- most recently challenging the tax-exempt status of Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS.


But the revelations I’m about to unveil make all that look like child’s play. An IRS scandal involving nameless faceless Tea Parties, or billionaire Super PACs, or generic taxpayers is not the stuff that brings down a presidency. But the story you’re about to read is Obama’s Watergate.


I have the smoking gun. I was targeted and persecuted by the IRS in an over-the-top attack coordinated at the highest levels of government and the Democratic Party. I can now prove it- with FACTS direct from my IRS files obtained under “the Freedom of Information Act” by Judicial Watch. As you’ll see below, my own IRS tax files not only implicate the IRS, but a leading Democrat U.S. Senator in a criminal conspiracy to silence a critic of the president.


But don’t take my word for it. Let’s start with a quote by Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch:


“The Obama IRS obstructed the release of Wayne Root’s tax documents. The abuse of process Judicial Watch and Wayne suffered through to get these documents is scandalous. Now we know why the Obama IRS was hesitant to give Wayne his own IRS files. These documents show the Obama IRS scandal was more than just suppressing the Tea Party, it was also about auditing critics of President Obama. Richard Nixon had to resign from office for less. The first order of business for AG Loretta Lynch should be to appoint a special counsel who can convene a grand jury to look into the Obama IRS outrages.”


–Tom Fitton


Judicial Watch


My IRS attack was a political conspiracy coordinated by leading Democrats to either destroy me, bankrupt me, or silence me. News flash: YOU FAILED. Now I’m going to expose this criminal conspiracy. My case and my personal IRS files have been handed to investigators from the United States Senate committee looking into the IRS scandal.


It’s time for the media and Democrat allies of the president to stop making excuses. My case is at the core of the principles America was built on. A president (by law) cannot use the IRS to try to silence his critics or political opponents. U.S. Senators (by law) cannot be involved in the IRS tax audits of individual taxpayers. The IRS (by law) cannot base tax audits on politics. If any of those things happen, it’s called a political witch-hunt and crimes have been committed.


But until now, no one could prove the IRS was using politics as a basis for vicious vendettas against critics of the president. That just changed. I can’t wait to testify in front of the United States Senate about what we found.


First it starts with the over-the-top nature of my IRS attack. I was audited starting in 2011. The audit started with something that IRS spokesmen and a government official from the office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration claim can never happen. These two government officials claimed in a recent Wall Street Journal article that no taxpayer will ever get a call from the IRS. They said if someone claiming to be from the IRS ever calls, hang up because it’s a scam. The IRS spokesman said the IRS never contacts a taxpayer by phone. Ever.


Really? Want to take a bet on that one? Will that top IRS ethics official be willing to take a lie detector test regarding that statement?


You see my IRS attack began with a phone call. The IRS agent from the Las Vegas office left a message on my voicemail. Then he called again. Then he took another unheard of step- he called my accountant. My CPA took “power of attorney.” From that moment on, the IRS agent was forbidden to contact me.


Yet the IRS agent called me again only minutes later. He spent about 15 minutes on the phone lecturing me about my political views. He knew everything about my politics in detail. Intimidating? You bet. I felt like I needed a shower. It felt like I was being stalked.


So now let me play prosecutor with these IRS spokesmen and government officials. Are you still sticking to your story that the IRS never calls taxpayers? Or is the correct wording, “The IRS never calls taxpayers, unless they are high-profile conservative critics of the president in the national media.” I think that phrasing sounds much more accurate.

After I won in Tax Court in 2012 something even more shocking happened. Something no tax expert or attorney had ever heard of. I was hit with a new IRS audit only five days later. Yes, I said FIVE DAYS after winning in tax court, I was targeted again. To my attorney’s knowledge this has never happened before in the annals of tax history.


After winning my audit once again, Judicial Watch took my case. They believed it was a classic criminal case of political intimidation using the IRS to target, prosecute and silence critics of the president. They requested my tax files from the IRS under the Freedom of Information Act. By law, the IRS had 30 days to comply. They stalled and refused for 14 months. Why would the IRS choose to disobey the law to prevent my files from getting into the hands of Judicial Watch?


Judicial Watch was relentless. The IRS finally handed over my tax files- 13 months late. 13 months of disobeying the law. The question is why? What did the IRS have to hide?


Now come the really criminal revelations.


Wouldn’t President Obama claim the IRS is not political? That IRS audits are never conducted based on politics? That politics and the IRS cannot merge in a free and fair democratic society? That Wayne Root’s case had nothing to do with politics?


Well I have an interesting revelation for Mr. Obama and the national media. We now have my personal IRS tax files in our possession. Do you know what they say on top…on page one?




Really? What’s “sensitive” about a random audit of a small businessman? Do you know the date “SENSITIVE CASE” was written on my tax file? The very same week that Lois Lerner testified in front of Congress.


So what exactly was “SENSITIVE CASE” referring to? I’m a national political figure…conservative bestselling author…conservative syndicated columnist…a fixture in places like Fox News, TheBlaze and conservative talk radio…and a nonstop critic of the president. Obviously the IRS was referring to “POLITICALLY SENSITIVE.” There is no other context where “sensitive” applies to me.


But I thought politics didn’t enter into it? Why would the IRS know or care about my politics? Why is a citizen’s tax file connected in any way to his political views? Good questions.


But we’re only getting started with the criminal implications of this case.


Written into the margin of my IRS tax files are the words of my IRS auditor. He wrote on my file that he spent many hours on the Internet researching the political views of Wayne Root. No wonder he was able to recite chapter and verse about my political views in a 15-minute phone call to start my audit.


How chilling is this revelation to the national media? Remind anyone of the KGB, Stasi or Gestapo? In a free and fair society IRS agents don’t spend hours researching a taxpayer’s political views. Not unless they are looking to destroy the taxpayer based on orders from above.


Why was this “research project” of my political views necessary if the IRS was conducting a “normal random audit?” Because this clearly wasn’t a “normal random audit.” It was a political witch-hunt. Crimes were committed. My civil rights were clearly violated. And my audit began with the phone call that the top ethics official of the IRS says “never happens.”


Would the IRS ethics official care to weigh in on an IRS agent calling a taxpayer to lecture him about his political views…after spending hours researching his life on the Internet? Cat got your tongue?


Wait. It gets better. My IRS files state that a United States Senator from Oregon was involved in my tax audit. At the time both Senators from Oregon were Democrats. So now we can prove it was a political witch-hunt directed or coordinated by high-level Democrat politicians.


Why would a US Senator be involved in a random taxpayer’s IRS audit? Why would an Oregon U.S. Senator be involved in the audit of a Nevada small businessman? Could it have been Oregon Senator Ron Wyden? Afterall he was at the time Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee with oversight over…


the IRS.


Let’s connect the dots. Why would an Oregon U.S. Senator care about a Nevada taxpayer? Could someone in the White House have asked the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, with oversight over the IRS, to initiate an IRS attack on Wayne Root? Was the goal to destroy a critic of Obama? Perhaps to bankrupt me with legal fees or taxes and penalties? Or maybe just to distract or intimidate me from from my nonstop appearances criticizing Obama in the conservative media?


I’ve heard many defenders of Obama claim I wasn’t important enough for this White House to commit crimes to silence me. Really? Then why was a Democrat US Senator involved in my IRS audit? Here’s a really good question- Why would any Senator from either party be involved in a “random IRS audit” of an individual taxpayer? Isn’t that illegal? Doesn’t it violate my civil rights? It’s certainly beyond the scope of the duties of a U.S. Senator. Unless the Obama White House asked him to get involved.


I’m truly honored that my personal IRS audit was that important to a US Senator. But everyone involved should go to prison. Criminal acts were clearly committed.


But wait, we’re not done. On May 23rd, 2013, my case was officially closed. Recognize that date? It’s the exact day that IRS official Lois Lerner was suspended and the day after she testified in front of Congress (and refused to answer questions on the grounds it might incriminate her). Coincidence? 


Why was my case closed? The IRS auditor handling my case informed my tax attorney that he was called by a top IRS official demanding the case be closed immediately. Why would a top IRS official get involved in my case? Who asked him to make that call? Did he know the politically damaging details of this audit marked “SENSITIVE CASE”? Why did it happen the very day after Lois Lerner’s testimony?


Why was it so important to suddenly close my case that specific week? Why the sudden rush? Why would a top IRS official get involved in my case? Why would he even know about a “random audit” of a Nevada small businessman? Or was he involved in a case marked “SENSITIVE.”


Why would a top IRS official know the details of my case? What was “sensitive” about my case? Why the need for top-level IRS officials to intercede in this “SENSITIVE CASE” on the same week Lois Lerner appeared before Congress?


It is clear I was targeted and persecuted by the IRS twice because of my conservative political views. There is no debate anymore. I am living proof this was a widespread political witch-hunt and criminal conspiracy within the IRS.


But my case is also proof this scandal extended beyond the IRS to high level Democrats- including a specific Democrat U.S. Senator. It’s all in black and white in my personal IRS tax files. These are facts.

Now it’s time for the mainstream media to do their job. CONNECT THE DOTS just like you did with Watergate.


Who asked the IRS to target Wayne Root? Who gave the IRS agent the order to call Wayne Root when the top IRS investigator claims that never happens? Who asked the Oregon Senator to get involved in my audit? Why was a top IRS official interceding in my case? Why was it marked “SENSITIVE”?


This conspiracy goes directly to the Obama White House. I’m not just any conservative media personality. I’m President Obama’s Columbia College classmate (Class of ’83) who has repeatedly publicly questioned Obama’s background and agenda in the national media- including nonstop here at Blaze.


I’m one of Obama’s loudest critics. It appears my criticisms hit close to home. I got under Obama’s skin. And someone in Obama’s White House either called that U.S. Senator to try to destroy me; or perhaps directly ordered my attacks at the hands of the IRS and then called the Oregon Senator to coordinate and oversee the attack.


One thing is now clear: I was the victim of a widespread politically-motivated criminal attack by the IRS.


My files have been turned over to U.S. Senate investigators. I stand ready to testify in front of the US Senate. Game on.









It’s Time for Black Americans to Blame Black Americans

Print Friendly

Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don‘t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence.

Where is Obama? Our nation’s first black president has been silent as blacks tear apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word when thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word about black-on-black crime, rioting, looting, burning or murder?

Where is the black Mayor of Baltimore? She clearly ordered police to stand down, make no arrests, stop no crimes while her city was being destroyed, while the businesses she is sworn to protect were being looted and burned. She clearly said days before the riots went ballistic that she wanted to create a “space for those who want to destroy.” Then she blamed the media for merely repeating her words verbatim.

Where are the black leaders? Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

How about the war on poverty? How’s that worked out for black America? The longest and most expensive war in American history has been in place since LBJ and inner cities like Baltimore look exactly the same. Same poverty. Same hopelessness. Same anger and violence. Same rioting and blame and excuses. After $22 trillion has been spent- more (by far) than all the wars in the history of America combined, the results are…nothing.

I hear plenty of excuses from black America. I hear they feel powerless. Really? With a black president, the first black Attorney General, another black Attorney General, a black Mayor of Baltimore and a black city council? All that and you still feel powerless?

How has having the first black president helped black America? With black unemployment double that of whites, who is to blame?

I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today. She wished white America would be half as outraged as outraged over “police violence” as they are over the riots.

Well I have a message for Sally Kohn:

I wish black Americans would be half as outraged over black on black violence, black on black murders, black gangs, black drug dealers, black looting, black burning of black small businesses, black rioting as they are about one white cop killing one black kid.

And one more thought for Sally and liberals like her…

What has 50 years of black rule, liberal welfare and entitlement policies, excuses and blame towards white people done for black Americans in inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit? Where’s the progress in those cities under 100% Democrat politicians and policies?

The sighting of a white Republican on the streets of cities like Detroit and Baltimore is just a rumor. There were no Republicans at the podium in Baltimore yesterday with the mayor. 100% black leadership. Yet urban inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit are in ruins.

It’s time to take personal responsibility. Slavery was a long, long, long time ago. My Jewish relatives were enslaved by Hitler and the Nazis much more recently than your ancestors were enslaved by the South. It’s time to move on.

It’s time to fight for jobs, not welfare. It’s time to look within yourselves. It’s time to stop blaming others. It’s time to blame black fathers. It’s time to blame black leaders. It’s time to blame a black president. It’s time to ask what the Democratic Party has ever done for you except insure you’re helpless, hopeless and dependent on government to survive. It’s time to blame the war on poverty.

It’s time for black Americans to blame black Americans.

Hillary is “the one.” She is our gift from God. Mana from Heaven. The gift that keeps on giving. Conservatives should get down on their knees and thank God for Hillary.

Okay, enough thanking and praying. Now let’s destroy her.

I speak at business conferences all over the world about my expertise- branding. The GOP has the greatest branding opportunity in modern history. Hillary is easier to brand than even Mitt Romney was for Democrats.

Destroy Hillary now and it leaves Democrats between a rock and a hard place. Here’s how to brand Hillary. This will be fun. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Hillary makes this job a joy!

Hillary should be branded with the name “TRICKY DICKY HILLARY.” She is a Nixon clone. A protege. She learned well from ole “Tricky Dicky.”

Let’s make sure America understands the Nixon connection. Hillary was a lawyer on the committee investigating Nixon’s scandals. She knew all about the erased Nixon audiotapes. She learned well. That must be where she got the idea to delete 32,000 emails and wipe the server clean. Like Nixon, she decided what we the people had a right to know. Then she pressed “delete.” That’s the first TV ad to run 24 hours a day.

Why did she delete 32,000 emails? What she afraid of. There’s the million dollar question. My guess is she was petrified of four dead American bodies at Benghazi. Then there was the cover-up of the four murders. Destroy her with her own words, “What difference does it make?” Those were Hillary’s words in front of a Congressional committee about the Benghazi tragedy. Four heroes were murdered. She participated in a cover-up and all she could think to say was, “What difference does it make?” Meaning those young heroes are all dead, so who cares?

Her own TV ads in 2008 bragged about her decision-making abilities at 2 AM when the important call comes in. Well we now know what she said when that call came in during the attack on Benghazi. She heard our heroes were about to be murdered and she said, “What difference does it make?” Then she went back to sleep.

I suggest TV ad campaigns featuring the parents of those four men abandoned by Hillary and Obama and left to die at the hands of a radical Muslim mob. Who supplied the arms? America? Under Hillary’s direction? Why wasn’t more security provided? Why wasn’t a rescue ordered? Who was involved in the coverup? Let’s ask the parents of those four dead Americans how they feel about Hillary. Put their answers on a TV commercial 24 hours a day.

Then let’s use Hillary’s own words to ask a crucial question: “What difference did Hillary make as Secretary of State?” Name her accomplishments? The world was in flames, the Middle East melted down, ISIS was born, Iran laughed in our face as they built a nuclear program- all under her leadership. True she flew around the world. Bravo. But the results are devastating. The world is a far more dangerous place. What difference did she make?

“We were dead broke when we left the White House.” There’s another great line straight from Hillary’s mouth. I’m guessing she believed it at the time. She was desperate for money. Maybe that’s why the Clinton’s stole the china and furniture on the way out the White House door. Maybe that’s why $6 BILLION went missing at the State Department under her watch. When you’re broke, $6 billion can make a big difference. Play that TV ad 24 hours a day.

Hillary says she is a “woman of the people.” She’s one of us. But she hasn’t driven a car since 1995. Picture a TV ad with chauffeurs driving Miss Hillary. Be sure they are identified as the leaders of the same Muslim nations that gave millions in donations to her Clinton Foundation. Run that TV ad 24 hours a day.

Hillary is all about the middle class. She has decided to make the middle class the centerpiece of her campaign for president. But “Mrs. Middle Class” demands $300,000 for a one-hour speech and a Gulfstream private jet to take her there and back.

She also gets the Presidential Suite at a 5 star hotel, or she won’t show up. No Marriots, Hiltons or Holiday Inns for Hillary. Run that story on TV ads 24 hours a day. Let’s see how middle class women respond to her list of demands. 

Hillary is all about honesty and transparency. But it turns out she bought 2 million fake Facebook fans. I guess those are the things you have to do when you ask middle class college kids paying obscene tuition to pay for your $300,000 speeches and private jets. It must be hard to find real fans! Run that story in a TV ad 24 hours a day.

Now back to the main course: The Clinton Foundation. The Clintons have raised over $2 billion dollars in donations from the wealthiest people, companies and foreign governments in the world. Hillary’s not “conflicted.” Rather she is completely 100% bought and paid for. If she wins the Presidency she should wear pantsuits custom designed with patches from corporate sponsors. You know like NASCAR. She should have Penske and Valvoline patches on her pantsuits. The White House should say “America’s House, Brought to you by the government of Saudi Arabia.”

Hillary says she fights for the rights of women…yet she accepts hundreds of millions in donations from Muslim governments that stone women…make them hide behind veils…don’t allow them to drive without a man in the car…don’t allow them to be educated…and arrest and whip them (occasionally even execute them) for being the victims of rape. She could be the biggest hypocrite in the history of politics.

Here’s a great line for TV commercials: “When a Muslim country gives a $10 million check to The Clinton Foundation…then stones a woman to death…what does Hillary say? “THANK YOU.” Run that TV ad 24 hours a day.

Hillary says she fights for the rights of gays. She tweeted her disgust at the new Indiana law protecting religious freedom. But she gladly accepted multi-million dollar checks from Muslim governments that stone gays and drop them off roofs of buildings. This is the biggest sellout in the history of world politics. Run that TV ad 24 hours a day.

Remember Hillary’s TV commercial about that important phone call at 2 AM. We need to run TV ads asking, “When that call comes in at 2 AM, and it involves one of those countries that gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, do you trust Hillary Clinton to make the decision that is best for America…for taxpayers…for your children? Hillary Clinton- bought and paid for by foreign governments.” Run that TV ad 24 hours a day.

Run all of those diverse TV ads 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, starting N-O-W. Brand and define Hillary long before the election.

That puts Democrats in a very difficult, if not impossible position. Do they nominate this deeply flawed, walking billboard of corruption and hypocrisy? Do they run for President with a standard bearer that has been morphed into Richard Nixon? Or do they dump her for an unknown? If they dump her, is there time to raise the money for a complete unknown? Will there be any money left after Hillary has sucked Democrat donors dry? Is there time to vet the replacement candidate for flaws? Is there time to introduce the new candidate to American voters and still win the election?

Democrats have put all their eggs in one tired, worn out, entitled Pinata. It’s time to start whacking away at Tricky Dicky Hillary.

This is going to be fun!

Republican Liberty Caucus Announces Wayne Allyn Root as Chairman of National Campaign Committee

Print Friendly


The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has voted to name Wayne Allyn Root as Chairman of its National Campaign Committee and RLC Advisory Board.


Monday, March 9, 2015–The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has voted to name Wayne Allyn Root as Chairman of its National Campaign Committee, as well as Chairman of the RLC Advisory Board. Root, now back to his lifelong Republican roots, was the Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee in 2008, as well as an elected Board member of the Libertarian National Committee, and Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee.

One of America’s most vocal critics of the Obama administration, Root is a frequent radio and TV guest, political commentator, syndicated political columnist, and the author of the national bestselling books, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” and “The Murder of the Middle Class.”

“We are very excited to have Wayne on board,” said Matt NyeRLC National Chairman. “Wayne is an extremely talented, charismatic and dynamic media personality; he’s an outspoken advocate for liberty, but he is particularly fierce on economic freedom and the U.S. Constitution.”

At the time Root joined the Libertarian Presidential ticket in 2008, the Bob Barr-Wayne Root presidential ticket was the 2nd most successful vote-getter in the party’s history. Root says that experience showed him just how heavily the scales are tilted in favor of the two-party system.

“As the Libertarian Party’s vice presidential nominee, I called myself a ‘REAGAN libertarian,’ in honor of my heroes Ronald Reagan and his mentor Barry Goldwater,” Root said. “I will forever be a libertarian leaning Republican-conservative, and I am grateful for my start in national politics with the Libertarian Party.”

Root says the grassroots uprising in 2010 and 2014 has given him hope the Republican Party can be returned to its roots.

“Given the popularity of the Tea Party message it makes sense to work within the Republican Party to return the GOP to the ideology of Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater and Jack Kemp,” Root said. “That is exactly the mission of the Republican Liberty Caucus, and I’m here to inject a dose of world-class energy and enthusiasm!”

RLC Chairman Matt Nye agrees, but says the Republicans apparently didn’t get the memo. He hopes high profile individuals like Root joining grassroots organizations like the RLC will help them see the light.

“In spite of the clear message the grassroots sent with massive, record-setting landslides in both the 2010 and 2014 elections, GOP party leadership doesn’t appear to have gotten the message,” Nye said. “Republicans were given a clear mandate to stop Obama’s agenda, but they’ve done nothing of substance to do so.”

Root agrees. 

“We’re stuck with leadership in both houses that is either spineless, incompetent or sympathetic to the president’s big government agenda; that, or the GOP’s leaders have simply been bought off by lawyers, lobbyists, big corporate donations and the famous DC culture of corruption,” Root said. “This is simply unacceptable. We are watching the greatest country, and the greatest middle class, in world history being systematically destroyed, and that is something I cannot stand by idly and watch.”

In his best-selling books Root blames the partnership of big government, big media and big corporations.

“Republicans must stand firm, cut spending and debt, balance the budget, repeal Obamacare, audit and reform the Fed, re-establish the Gold Standard and roll back out-of control federal agencies like the EPA, IRS, and the NSA program spying on US citizens,” Root said. “Most of all, Republican leaders must stand up and fight for capitalism and American Exceptionalism.”

Root says Republicans must offer a clear alternative.

“The GOP controls Congress, and Congress controls spending,” Root said. “It’s time the GOP withdraws from this president’s agenda that is destroying capitalism, small business and America. If they can’t do that, then Americans have no reason to vote Republican.”

Nye concurs.

“With Wayne’s help, we at the RLC intend to hold their feet to the fire,” he said.

Root’s web site is His new business book, entitled “The Power of RELENTLESS!” will be out August 10th. You can follow Wayne on Twitter here

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

Print Friendly



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.


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


Then on New Years Day Harry had a far more serious episode.


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.


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. 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.

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.

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?

I was the first political commentator in the country to predict a GOP landslide in Tuesday’s election. I described the predicted GOP landslide as “massive and historic.” 

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.

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.

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.

Not only are Democrats great at getting out the vote, they are even better at getting out fraudulent voters. 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.
