It’s Time to Remove Obama from Office- Before He Gets Us All Killed

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

Only a madman would gamble with our lives…our children’s lives…and the entire American economy. Why would President Obama play “Russian Roulette” with the future of our country? It’s a gamble no sane leader would take.

 

The life and death issue is Ebola. The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic. Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible?

 

There are three simple, common sense actions any President who cared about American citizens would take:

 

#1) Ban all flights from the Ebola Zone and quarantine all travelers coming from any Ebola Zone. This is an absolute ‘no brainer’. Time is wasting. It should have been done months ago and may already be too late. Who knows how many people in America right now (or flying here tonight or tomorrow) are already infected.

 

#2) Secure and seal the border- NOW. Any day, any minute, illegal immigrants sick with Ebola could be walking across our border.

 

Worse, how easy is it for our radical Muslim enemies to send Ebola infected terrorists across the border? How simple to infect and send hundreds of “Ebola suicide terrorists” into our hospitals and children’s schools.

All our radical Jihadist enemies have to do is inject tainted Ebola blood into volunteer suicide bombers or worse, innocent children, and send them across the border.  Undetectable, they walk across our Southern border showing no symptoms and surrender to U.S. border agents. Obama disperses them across the country where they sneeze or cough on their lawyers, caretakers, and classmates. It’s that easy…it’s that simple, to start a deadly Ebola Pandemic across America.

 

Equally disturbing, what if Ebola spreads to Mexico, Central or South America. Suddenly panic ensues and hundreds of thousands of their citizens (or even millions) run for the U.S. border looking for America’s medical system to save them, spreading Ebola like wildfire… into your home and mine.

 

Our border is wide open to bring death and disaster, ending America as we know it. Yet President Obama is unwilling to do a thing to secure it. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

 

The question is why?

 

#3) Return all U.S. troops from the Ebola Zone. Obama’s decision to send troops to Africa is pure madness. No good can come from sending 4000 U.S. troops into harm’s way of an invisible deadly germ.

Can you imagine the panic that will ensue if any of our troops contract Ebola? What if a ship becomes infected? Would it stay at sea while most die and until the survivors are deemed safe? Will returning planes be diverted to military bases where every soldier is a ticking time bomb that could infect friends, family, entire communities?

 

Mr. President, it’s time to tell the truth about Ebola. It is far easier to become infected than doctors or health experts are telling us. We are told becoming infected is an extremely remote possibility. Really?  An NBC cameraman got Ebola without ever touching a sick patient, or entering the room of an Ebola victim. A nurse in Dallas got Ebola while wearing heavy protective gear. Over 200 doctors and nurses in Africa are dead despite wearing protective gear, washing hands with bleach, and knowing exactly what they were dealing with. Still they are powerless to stop it.

 

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class”, focuses on economic murder. Ebola is the embodiment of this murder. An Ebola pandemic will kill thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Americans. But separate from the human tragedy, the economic cost will overwhelm and bankrupt our country.

 

The cost of treating just one Ebola patient is beyond comprehension: special ambulances; isolation chambers; hazmat suits; weeks or months in the hospital; quarantines for every person that came into contact with the Ebola victim; decontamination teams for their homes; and even special handling of bodies for burial.

 

We’re talking about millions of dollars per Ebola patient. Multiply that times thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of victims. If Ebola gets loose in a crowded urban area, America’s economy will crumble.

 

Then there’s the death of tourism and commerce. Restaurants, hotels, airlines, shopping centers, movie theatres, sporting events, tourism and entertainment of all kinds will be shut down. Sports seasons will be cancelled. Americans will be trapped in their homes, frightened to go outside. Commerce will grind to a halt. Jobs lost by the millions. The economic devastation will be unimaginable. America’s economy (already on the ropes) will be in ashes. The result could be total economic ruin.

 

Yet knowing all this, Obama does nothing. He refuses to secure the border. He sends our young military men and women into the death zone to face an invisible killer. He even purposely chooses to refuse to do something so simple and common sense as ban flights and quarantine travelers from the Ebola Zone.

 

Our President is putting all of our lives, our families, our economic survival, at risk. He is gambling with our children, our jobs, the future survival of America. Yet none of this has to happen.

 

Why take that gamble? Why risk economic suicide? Why not take all possible actions and precautions to limit the possibility of a widespread epidemic?

 

Is Obama criminally insane? A madman? An ignorant, delusional fool? Or is he doing this purposely to overwhelm America’s economic system? Does it matter?

 

By the way, as America’s first case of Ebola transmitted on U.S. soil was announced, where was Obama? Playing his 200th round of golf as president. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2790237/war-rages-middle-east-dallas-confirms-second-ebola-victim-s-obama-hitting-links-200th-golf-game-president.html

 

Any American who isn’t blind can see something is very wrong. It’s time for patriots, political and military leaders to speak up. Our President is clearly reckless, irresponsible, incompetent or evil. Regardless of the reason, for the sake of our families, and our physical and economic survival, it’s time to remove Obama from office.

 

Now…before it’s too late. Before he gets us all killed.

Happy Anniversary to Obamacare- the Gift That Keeps on Giving!

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

 

Last week was the anniversary of Obamacare. Obamacare is like marriage. One year seems like decades. As FDR said of Pearl Harbor, this anniversary is a date that will live in infamy.

 

But the GOP shouldn’t run away from Obamacare, they should embrace it.

 

Obamacare is their ticket to a landslide victory in 2014 and 2016. Scream about it day and night from the highest mountains! Celebrate the anniversary. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

 

Republican politicians and strategists need to get out of Washington DC and stop listening to the mainstream media. The Kool Aid-drinking mainstream media is either delusional, or lying to cover-up for the massive failure of Obama’s one and only “signature achievement.” The truth is middle America is steaming mad. Angry. Depressed. Feeling ripped off. The reason why is simple- because they have now lived with Obamacare for a year. They now know the truth, first hand.

 

We don’t need the media to tell us Obamacare is a failure and a rip-off. We are living it. We are witness to the scene of the crime. In 2012 everyone was debating the pros and cons of Obamacare based on guesses. Today Obamacare is in effect. No one needs to guess.

 

Millions of Americans have lost their health insurance. Millions more have seen massive unaffordable increases. Millions more have seen their jobs cut from full-time to part-time. Funny how none of these facts have made it into the mainstream media.

 

Take this author and small businessman for example. My family’s health insurance has gone from $500 per month to $1,700 per month thanks to Obamacare. But my fun was just beginning. Because the tripling of my rates wasn’t the worst part. In July we received a notice from Aetna that our insurance was being cancelled. The reason? Because of the mandates of Obamacare Aetna can no longer afford to insure my family for $1,700 per month.

 

What will the new rate be? $2000 per month? $2500 per month? Will they charge me $30,000 per year (before taxes) to provide health coverage for a family that has never experienced a major illness?

 

Think about this for a moment. Aetna is a faceless bureaucracy. The 3rd biggest insurance company in America. They don’t “know me from Adam.” They don’t know my income. They have no idea if I’m rich or poor. Health insurance rates aren’t based on income. That means across America millions of insurance customers are getting massive premium increases and cancellation notices.

 

The lives of average middle class Americans are being ruined by Obamacare. Since the average income in America is about $50,000 per year, how will anyone afford $20,000 or $25,000 or $30,000 insurance bills? You think people are panicking across America? You’re damn right they are.

 

So far it’s only small business owners and independent contractors getting these cancellations and dramatic price increases. They always come first. But soon it will be large corporations. They will have no choice but to either layoff employees by the millions, or drop health insurance for employees. A disaster is about to befall America and the U.S. economy- most of it will come after the election.

 

Think I’m wrong? Just this morning one of the shoes dropped. Fox News reported hundreds of thousands of Americans are receiving cancellation notices from 13 states and the District of Columbia in the next few days. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/09/more-than-dozen-states-plan-to-cancel-health-care-policies-not-in-compliance/

 

 

But I’m not done with the bad news yet. One of my dearest friends is a lifelong liberal Democrat who voted twice for Obama. He called days ago to tell me a story everyone needs to hear. He said, “Wayne you were right. Obamacare is a disaster.” I almost feinted. I asked him what made him “see the light?” He told me the story of the checkout gals at his favorite grocery store.

 

He has shopped at the same supermarket story for many years. The checkout gals are all Hispanic single mothers. After years of shopping twice a week in that same store, my friend has become old friends with these supermarket checkout gals. They always ask each other, “How’s life? How’s your family?” This time they told him a sad story.

 

Because of Obamacare they’ve all been cut from full-time employees to part-time. They are frightened. They have no idea how they’ll pay their bills. They have no idea how they’ll pay the rent.

 

Worse, Wal*Mart just announced they are ending healthcare benefits for part-time employees. Wal*Mart employees over 1.3 million Americans.http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-07/walmart-ends-healthcare-benefits-workers-under-30-hours

 

This is the future of America under Obamacare. Nothing but low-wage part-time jobs…and no healthcare benefits. Good luck. You are all now dependent on government for survival.

 

Obamacare is a tragedy for middle class Americans. Like the title of my new book, it is “The Murder of the Middle Class.” If you’re a small business owner you are being ripped-off (ie sacrificed) to pay the bill for 30 million new patients who are getting it for free. If you’re working class (like those supermarket checkout gals, or Wal*Mart employees) there’s a good chance you’re about to lose your job, or be downgraded to part-time hours, or have all or part of the health insurance bill dumped on you.

 

It’s a bloodbath. Yes, it’s true some people are happy. Millions of poor people have gotten something for nothing. But those are lifelong loyal Democratic voters. Obama and his socialist cabal don’t gain one vote from that group.

 

But the lives of millions of middle class Americans- many of them independent voters, or blue dog Democrats- have been damaged badly by Obamacare. They are angry and they will take it out on Obama and the Democratic Party this November…

 

If Republicans use Obamacare as a hammer…

 

If Republicans tie the tragic consequences of Obamacare to Obama and the Democratic Party.

 

So my message to the GOP is simple: Don’t run from Obamacare. Embrace it. Obamacare is the anniversary gift that keeps on giving.

 

If played right, if we scream about it from the highest mountains, Obamacare’s anniversary is the gift that will lead to a GOP landslide in November…and for many years to come.

Happy Anniversary!

Latest Job Report is Pure Fraud

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

Here we go again. The latest jobs report is out- and it’s pure fraud. Fantasy. Bogus. Lies and propaganda passed off as “good news.” The reality is it’s a disaster for America and our middle class.

 

The “facts” released by our “honest and transparent government” report 248,000 new jobs created, beating expectations by a mile. The “facts” report unemployment dropping to 5.9%, the lowest since 2008.

 

It’s as if Obama is saying, “If you like your job, you can keep it.”

 

But you can’t. It’s no more truthful or realistic than “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” Same fraud. Same lies. Same propaganda. Same “Banana Republic media” reporting fantasy as truth.

 

Here’s the nightmare REAL facts about the latest jobs report:

 

First the reason unemployment dropped to the fantasy level of 5.9% is that 315,000 more Americans dropped out of the Labor Force (in one month). http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-03/labor-participation-rate-drops-36-year-low-record-926-million-americans-not-labor-fo

 

Where did they go? Most of them dropped off unemployment to get on welfare, food stamps or disability. Many of them waited until reaching age 62 or 65 to join the Social Security rolls.They just barely hung on until retirement age and will never work again. Where will America get the money to pay for all these welfare, food stamp, disability and Social Security checks? We’re already broke. This just adds to the crushing unsustainable $18 trillion debt.

 

This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.

 

Adding to the misery, the Labor Force Participation rate just dropped to the lowest in 36 years. There are now 92.6 million working-age Americans NOT working. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-03/labor-participation-rate-drops-36-year-low-record-926-million-americans-not-labor-fo

 

This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.

 

Like those late night infomercials say- “But wait. There’s more!”

 

How can 248,000 new jobs be a good thing if average hourly wages just dropped for only the 6th time since the failure of Lehman Brothers? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-03/wageless-recovery-average-hourly-earnings-suffer-first-monthly-decline-july-2013

 

The middle class isn’t getting richer, it’s getting poorer. Under Obama we are struggling to survive…we are struggling to pay bills…that’s if we keep our jobs.

 

This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.

 

The bad news is coming in waves. The only people being hired are your grandparents. 230,000 of the new jobs went to those in the 55 to 69 year old age group. In the prime working age group of 24 to 54 years old, 10,000 jobs were lost. Yes, I said lost. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-03/hiring-grandparents-only-230k-september-were-added-55-69-age-group-10k-lost-prime-25

 

Holy freaking batman! What is happening? It means grandma and grandpa are desperate and willing to take grandson’s low wage job to survive until Social Security kicks in. The U.S. workforce is now the oldest in history. And if grandpa has to work (out of desperation) until the day he dies, there will never be any decent jobs for the grandkids.

 

This isn’t good news. It’s a disaster.

 

But I’ve saved the worst news for last. What good is the news of 248,000 new jobs if they are all part-time or low wage jobs? 4 of the 5 new jobs were in the lowest quality categories.http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-03/4-5-top-job-additions-september-were-low-or-minimum-wage

 

Obama is creating a nation of desperate, government-dependent minimum wage workers. If you lose your $100,000 job, get ready to clean toilets, flip burgers, mow lawns, or work at The Gap. Because that’s all that’s available among the new jobs.

 

Welcome to Obama’s America- where up is down…where bad news is reported as good news…where old is the new young (because only old people work anymore)…where minimum wage is this President’s obsession because minimum wage jobs are the centerpiece of the Obama economy.

 

This folks is an unmitigated disaster. This is the murder of the middle class.

 

And…

 

This jobs report is pure fraud.

WHO WOULD YOU PICK- OBAMA OR DEREK JETER?

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

Derek Jeter aka “The Captain” of the New York Yankees played his last game a couple of weeks ago. He ended his career with an RBI single in Boston, after ending his career at home in Yankee stadium with a game-winning, walk-off, RBI single. Jeter defines a leader. He has the 6th highest hit total in the history of baseball. He was the captain of five World Championship teams. But his qualities go so much deeper.

 

Jeter never bragged. He never used words like “I.” He gave credit to others for his achievements. He never demeaned or denigrated others. He always made the people around him feel better. He always played like a gentleman- never cheating or trying to gain unfair advantage (which is why Jeter is beloved by even his opponents). He refused to accept defeat. He therefore made the people around him better.

 

The result? In 20 years as a Yankee…over 2700 games played…over 11,000 at bats…he played in exactly FOUR games where his team was not in playoff contention. FOUR games in 20 years. FOUR games out of almost 3000 games played. Basically every single game he ever played in, in 20 years, his team was in the hunt for a championship. For virtually every single game he played in, in a 20 year career he was a winner. For virtually every single game in 20 years, Jeter’s team had a chance to be the world champion. Amazing.

 

Oh and once he got there to the postseason, he rose to the occasion. His 200 postseason hits happen to be the most in baseball history. When it counted, when all the chips were on the line, Jeter played at his best. That’s leadership.

 

Now let’s compare Derek Jeter’s attributes to President Obama’s leadership skills and attributes. Obama brags incessantly. He uses the “I” word dozens of times in every speech. He denigrates and demonizes his opposition every chance he gets (“You didn’t build that”). He plays dirty- he uses the IRS and other government agencies to intimidate and destroy the lives of his critics and scare the biggest donors of his opposition. He divides people into class, race, gender, religion, political affiliation. He lies (“If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance”). He encourages hatred, jealousy, bitterness and strife. Obama’s rhetoric has led to more racial strife and division than any modern President.

 

The American people have noticed. In polls Obama is rated the worst president since World War II. Lower than Jimmy Carter or George W. Bush. Lower even than Richard Nixon, the disgraced ex-president.

 

Now let’s compare the actual record of Jeter vs. Obama:

 

Jeter’s 5 world championships, 200 record-setting postseason hits, and the streak of 20 straight years of being a winner in virtually every game he played in…

 

Versus…

 

Obama.

 

Has America been a champion in anything, on any day in past 6 years of Obama’s presidency?

 

Has our economy been a winner in any category for 6 straight years?

 

Have we been a leader in middle class job creation in any day in 6 straight years (as opposed to the few crappy low-wage, part-time jobs created)?

 

Has there been a day that middle class Americans were better under Obama than before?

 

Have we been a world leader on any day in past 6 years- respected, feared, considered a role model or moral beacon?

 

Do we feel like world champions? Does Obama make us feel as if anything is possible?

 

Name the category. I dare my liberal friends. I double dare you.

 

Of course all Kool Aid-drinking Democrats will immediately recite one answer- the stock market.

 

That’s it. That’s all Obama’s got. In six long years the stock market is the only thing Obama can claim as a winner.

 

Except it’s not true. It took almost $8 trillion in new debt to make the stock market go up. That’s the most debt in world history. That’s just about double the debt added by George W. Bush. That’s more debt by the time he leaves office than all previous presidents combined.

 

All that fake money printing has to be paid back….by our children and grandchildren. The rising stock market was all a mirage. All achieved by “cooking the books.” Take away almost $8 trillion in debt…and trillions printed by the Fed and sprinkled over Wall Street…and the stock market would never have gone up. We’d have been in an Obama Great Depression. Instead it was all covered up by fake money printing and deficit spending with money we didn’t have.

 

Now we are left with $8 trillion in new debt to pay back. It was like using a credit card to buy $100,000 in toys. But now you’re broke, jobless and owe back $100,000 at 18% interest rates. It was all short term instant gratification. Everything you bought will be confiscated by your creditors. The party is over.

 

Obama created Reagan’s “peace dividend” in reverse. Reagan spent billions on national defense and military buildup to bankrupt the evil Soviet Empire and end the threat of Cold War. As a result, we enjoyed 20 consecutive years of his “peace dividend”- thereby allowing Bill Clinton to reduce military spending and take credit for success and prosperity. Reagan set the stage for years of success. That’s leadership.

 

Obama has done the reverse. He has spent trillions of dollars to make himself look good, while the next guy holds the bag. He turned the stock market into a rigged craps game, thereby enriching his biggest donors (billionaires and unions) and pension funds- who in turn dipped into this piggy bank to fund Obama’s re-election. Obama took credit but the middle class is stuck with the bill. Quite a Ponzi scheme.

 

Obama’s actions will destroy our children’s and grandchildren’s quality of living. His debt will destroy the American Dream. This is “the murder of the middle class.” Obama’s legacy is the opposite of Jeter’s (or Reagan’s). Obama has left destruction, debt, failure and misery in his wake.

 

Derek Jeter defines a leader, winner, champion and role model. There isn’t an owner in all of sports, anywhere in the world who wouldn’t build a team around Derek Jeter. He is everyone’s first pick.

 

Would any owner build a team around Obama? Make him “The Captain?” Keep him as manager after six straight losing seasons?

 

Barack Obama was my college classmate (Columbia University Class of ’83). One thing I can tell you:

 

Barack Obama is no Derek Jeter.

Is Devastating Stock Market Crash on the Way?

As published at Glenn Beck’s site TheBlaze:

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

Is everyone asleep at switch? Stuck in La La Land? Delusional and detached just like our president? Whistling past the graveyard? Because a combination of my crystal ball and just a little common sense says a major stock market correction is in our future.

 

Does anyone on Wall Street read the news?

 

Security experts warn a terrorist attack on America soil appears imminent. Only days ago, the federal government agreed. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/386694/judicial-watch-feds-bulletin-describes-threat-imminent-terrorist-attack-southern

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

Where would the terrorists come from? Our Southern border with Mexico is wide open for anyone to walk across. Our border is under siege. Obama has no strategy to stop or even slow the invasion of America by desperate poor masses expecting billions of dollars in welfare from cradle to grave. Just the cost of educating the new illegal children in this school year is over $700 million. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/09/02/cost-educating-new-class-illegal-immigrant-minors-estimated-at-over-760m/

America is already bankrupt and almost $18 trillion in debt. Where will the money come from?

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

But our unsecured Southern border with Mexico could bring more than terrorism. Ebola is spiraling out of control. http://atlanta.cbslocal.com/2014/09/02/cdc-director-ebola-outbreak-is-spiraling-out-of-control/

World health experts are quietly preparing for an Ebola pandemic infecting as many as 100,000. If it reaches America’s shores the resulting panic could overwhelm the healthcare system, shutdown commerce, close schools and result in transportation and supply interruptions. All it takes is one infected illegal immigrant crossing into America, after exposing hundreds of others in cramped unsanitary conditions during the border crossing.

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

The situation in Ukraine just got much worse. There are over 20,000 Russian troops at border. NATO just proved with satellite imagery that Russia has physically entered Ukraine. The invasion has begun- a worst case scenario.

The war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza may have been just a precursor of things to come. It too could lead to World War III.

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

Yet all of these threats pale compared to ISIS. ISIS is the game-changer. ISIS is perhaps the biggest threat America has faced since Nazi Germany. And our president admits he has no strategy to combat this threat to our very existence. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/aug/28/obama-admits-isil-dilemma-we-dont-have-strategy-ye/

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

Then there’s the economy. Taxes are so high that companies are running away from America. Take just the latest example, Burger King. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/08/26/Buffett-to-help-finance-Burger-King-deal–report

 

My CEO friends tell me virtually every billion-dollar company in America is plotting and planning the same escape. It’s a “jail break.” Everyone in corporate America wants out of Obama’s America.

 

So do thousands, or perhaps soon tens of thousands, of high-income individuals. Last year an all-time record 3000 Americans renounced their citizenship. As more corporations and wealthy citizens run for the door, who will be left to pay America’s taxes?http://money.cnn.com/2014/02/17/pf/taxes/citizenship-taxes/

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

Who will be left to pay our enormous world-record setting debt? The federal debt is up an unimaginable $7 trillion since Obama took office.

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

And the citizens who actually still have a job- ie the consumers who buy the products sold by publicly traded companies on Wall Street- aren’t faring too well either.

 

U.S. jobs pay 23% less than in 2008. That’s an average of $47,000 versus $61,000. That’s $93 billion in lost wages.

http://dailycaller.com/2014/03/18/report-premiums-rising-faster-than-eight-years-before-obamacare-combined

 

As a result of all this terrible news, should it come as a surprise that consumers are in a foul mood? The latest polls show that Americans are “unhappy, worried and pessimistic.” That’s a bad combination. http://personalliberty.com/pessimism-rocks-americas-post-recession-workplace

 

Yet the stock market sits at all-time highs.

 

In the face of all of this, stock prices continue to rise to all-time heights, all based on one thing- the Fed being forced to keep printing fake money so Wall Street and stock investors can get rich on the misery of the rest of us.

 

Trusted economic guru Robert Schiler’s price-earnings ratio (CAPE) is now at 26.5. That’s the 4th highest ratio since 1881. Throughout history when stocks hit a ratio this high, the result is a 30% (or higher) drop.

Add it up. Delusion abounds. Investors are ignoring history. Danger signals are flashing like never before. America is in severe trouble. The middle class (i.e. consumers) is in shambles. But the stock market keeps just keeps rising to the heavens.

 

We’ve all seen this story before. It never ends well. The stock market crash of 1929. The Great Depression. The Great Tulip Bubble. Common sense tells me that this time isn’t different.

 

My gut instincts are at “Defcon Level.” I suspect we are one “Black Swan” event away from either a devastating stock market crash, or a long-term deep decline. I don’t know when it will come. No one can predict that. But history says…Prepare. 

 

Because it’s coming.

Do We Have a Sociopath in the White House?

By Wayne Allyn Root

Things aren’t going so well for America. There was major rioting all week in Ferguson, Missouri…there are still no jobs for middle class Americans…our Southern border is still under siege…Obamacare is a disaster…our veterans are dying at the hands of the incompetent VA…ISIS threatens to create a radical Muslim empire in the Middle East…and the world (from Israel to Ukraine to Syria to Iraq) is literally on fire.

Where is our President? On vacation…again. 

This time even the media is whispering. “Where is Obama? Isn’t his indifference to the problems of America and disconnect from reality, strange?” The simple answer is, “No.” This is how he’s been his entire adult life. It all started at Columbia University.

I believe we have a President who is an arrogant, egomaniacal sociopath.

The definition of a “sociopath” is a person with an antisocial personality disorder. They are often well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.

My new book “The Murder of the Middle Class” presents the story in vivid detail. I was Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983. I’ve been trying to tell America about Obama’s “problem” for seven long years now.

By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior is fairly well set. That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tell us so much about his behavior as President today. Where was he? Why does virtually no one from Columbia remember the future President of the United States? Why did the future president make an impression on none of his classmates?

Things rarely change. 30 years ago, my classmate was rarely seen. 30 years later, he is rarely seen conducting the business of the presidency. No one should be surprised.

What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing. I had never met him. As I’ve reported countless times to the media, Obama and I shared the same major— Political Science. We were both Pre-Law. It was a small class (about 700 students). The Political Science department was even smaller (maybe 150 students) and was a close-knit group. I thought I knew or had at least met everyone in this department.

But I never met Obama. Never even heard of him. What’s worse, neither did anyone I knew at Columbia. Think about that. Our classmate is President of the United States. Yet he didn’t leave a footprint.

In all my years of publicly questioning Obama’s absence at Columbia, I know of only two possible sightings. Two people called me claiming to be classmates.  One caller claimed that he thinks he saw Obama once in a bar across from Columbia blowing smoke rings. Another called to say he thinks he saw Obama in the cafeteria at Barnard (our sister school for women only).

Two possible Obama sightings in 30 years—one smoking in a bar, the other at a women’s cafeteria. Isn’t that the perfect guy to run your country?

Obama defenders and the media (I know, they’re the same) misinterpreted what I said. I never said Obama didn’t attend Columbia. I said he was never in class—perpetually absent, missing in action. Sound familiar?

Obama acts exactly the same today as President, as he did as a student at Columbia. Obama has always believed himself to be brilliant and better than the rest of us. He’s arrogant and detached. He thinks he’s too smart to have to actually do the work the rest of us do. He’s above it all.  Why attend class? “What could someone as smart as me possibly learn in class?”

It’s the same story today. Obama rarely attends meetings, even with his cabinet. He’s too busy playing golf, taking vacations, or attending fundraisers.

This past February Obama skipped two national security meetings focused on Russia’s potential invasion of Ukraine. He was too busy to attend a meeting about a crisis that could lead to World War III.  (National Security Aides Discuss Ukraine)

Even if Obama wasn’t concerned about Russia invading Ukraine, certainly he finds America’s jobs crisis important, right? Wrong. Obama never bothered to convene one meeting of his own Jobs Council in a full year, even with unemployment and under-employment at crisis levels. (Jobs Council Hits Year Without Official Meeting)

Even more remarkable, within 2 weeks of that story, Obama closed down his Jobs Council—with 12 million Americans still counted officially as unemployed. Jobs Council Shutting Down

So what is so important in Obama’s life? Golf and fundraisers. PolitiFact.com, the non-partisan fact checker, confirmed our President golfed often and attended 106 fundraisers during just a 6 month period where he could find no time, or interest, to attend even one meeting of his own Jobs Council.(100 Plus Fundraisers, Jobs Council Rarely Met)

And, where was Obama the night of the Benghazi attack? Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified Obama was absent that night. (Obama Talks Only Once Night of Benghazi Attack)

Four brave Americans died while Obama was “absent.” What could be so important that Obama never checked in to ask a question, or discuss a rescue attempt from 5:30 PM ET until the next morning (when everyone was dead)? (Obama Absent Night of Benghazi)

The track record is consistent. Just like his college days, Obama believes he’s too gifted to do the actual work of President. He’s just too busy to have to worry about the plight of unemployed Americans. He’s even too important to worry about young black males killing each other in Chicago, or being shot by police, or serious unrest, rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri. He’s got more important things to do than stay in touch as a U.S. Embassy is under attack. Hamas is lobbing missiles into Israel. Who cares? “I’ve got a golf game in the morning.”

To be exact, Obama has played 186 rounds of golf and counting versus Bush’s 24. (Obama: 186 Rounds of Golf)

Does Obama ever work? Sure. Every once in a while he throws a “Beer Summit.”

Nothing much has changed since Columbia University. Not Obama’s personality, not his attitude, not his behavior. Either Obama is detached and just couldn’t care less…or he just doesn’t like America very much, so he’s purposely fiddling while Rome burns. Or, like O.J. Simpson, maybe he’s searching for the answers to all of these terrible crises in the holes and sand traps of America’s greatest golf courses.

This is most certainly “The Murder of the Middle Class.” And the death of America.

I believe we have a sociopath in the White House.

Legendary Business Owner Warns of Economic Collapse

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” paints a picture of economic devastation throughout America. Because of big government over-reach, onerous taxes, debt, regulations, lawsuits and increased IRS attacks on business, the odds of starting a new business and succeeding have been badly damaged. This is precisely why there is a severe shortage of new full-time, middle class wage jobs. Small business traditionally creates a majority of new jobs, yet small business is under withering attack by the Obama administration, the judicial system and our political class.

 

I can quote hundreds of factual statistics proving the American economy is in severe decline.  Recently we learned American household wealth has declined by over one third in only 10 years. Over the same time electricity, water, fuel, food and tax costs have soared by as much as over 100%. But why deal with sterile statistics? Let’s go right to the source. Let’s hear the reason for the decline of American business direct from a mega successful businessman who has “boots on the ground.”

 

Wayne Gorsek is the quintessential American entrepreneur. He has lived the American Dream. Raised and adopted by his grandparents (who lived in a 14×70 single wide mobile home), Wayne started a tiny vitamin company in Springfield, Illinois out of a basement in 1994. Wayne grew his small company into the most successful online vitamin retailer in the world. His company became one of the few in history to earn “INC 500 Hall of Fame” status.  For 15 years, Wayne’s company grew at a remarkable 50% a year pace, thousands of percent over 15 years.

 

Wayne Gorsek was living the American Dream. He took his company public on NASDAQ in 2009 for a $320 million valuation. Along the way he gave well over 1000 Americans a full-time job with good middle class wages and benefits. Many of his employees and investors made a fortune when his company went public, the average return to investors was measured in thousands of percent. Gorsek retired at the age of 42 and bought not one, but two new private jets and earned two single pilot jet type ratings. His story is a living, breathing example of how capitalism, combined with hard and smart work can produce extreme success for everyone involved.

 

But today Gorsek has a new story and a message every American needs to hear. Unfortunately, his updated story is proof positive that no recovery is coming, no middle class jobs rebound is possible.

 

Here is the eye-opening Part II of this story. Wayne Gorsek got bored by retirement and decided to get back in the game. He took about $26 million of his own money and started two new vitamin companies called www.drvita.com and natureslab.com (you’ve seen the brand at costco.com). His company also manufactures Martha Stewart’s new vitamin brand sold at Walgreens.

 

That’s where the story gets interesting.

 

Gorsek reports on how things have changed. “It doesn’t surprise me that there are 92 million working-age Americans no longer working and even worse 108 million are now on one or multiple forms of welfare. It doesn’t surprise me that for the first time in history more businesses are failing each day than starting. I’ve now seen the reasons for the murder of the middle class up close and personal.”

 

Gorsek says things have changed dramatically since he started his first company in 1994 and not for the better. “I have found it three times more expensive and far more stressful and difficult compared to 20 years ago. The differences are stunning. I did not have to risk $26 million of my own money to build a state of the art vitamin manufacturing facility in Las Vegas. I didn’t have to…but I wanted to. I did it to create jobs; to lower vitamin prices and significantly improve the formulations with MADE IN USA vitamins for consumers; and to help turnaround the economy.”

 

Gorsek continues, “Don’t forget my timing, I made the decision to invest $26 million during the worst economy since the Great Depression. Shouldn’t entrepreneurs and financial risk-takers like me be thanked and rewarded? Instead I feel demonized, denigrated, targeted and punished. Fear and uncertainty of the government is reason #1 why there are a lack of quality full time jobs.”

 

But Gorsek sees many more problems. “A trillion a year in welfare spending incentivizing people not to work has made it hard to find quality employees. Why work when you can stay home, sleep late and collect dozens of different welfare checks, free food, free cell phones, free healthcare and many other freebies from government…

 

Then there are the much higher income taxes and capital gain taxes; employment taxes, hundreds of thousands of pages of onerous regulations, fees and fines; plus the lawyer and accounting costs to comply with a maze of city, county, state and federal laws…

 

Now add in Obamacare, the biggest job killer ever. Because of the massive costs of Obamacare, many employers have no choice but to layoff employees, or create only part-time low wage jobs. When I started my prior company in the 1990s health care costs were $1 trillion per year, they are now at nearly triple that insane level to $2.8 trillion per year.

 

Lastly the ease for employees to file frivolous lawsuits is truly a disgrace. Lawyers are job killers, but guess who runs government and makes the laws? Lawyers. It just doesn’t pay to risk your money to start a business anymore when the chance of failure is now near 100% and the government has monopolized the wealth and power to the Fortune 1000 companies (because they are the only ones that can afford to “pay to play”).

 

Gorsek’s advice is simple, if only our political leaders would listen. “If Americans fail to elect politicians that will actually reduce the taxes, regulations and make it harder to file frivolous lawsuits (with loser pay laws), as well as reduce the size and spending of government, while providing incentives for businesses creating the jobs, you will see the continued decline of the U.S. economy, the death of good jobs and the murder of the middle class. We’re staring at the end of the American Dream.”

 

Priceless common sense advice from a proven business builder and job creator who has tried it twice, and who sees the stark differences in America today. Wayne Gorsek’s conclusion is simple: Because of these changes, the second time around is much more difficult, if not impossible. At this moment in time, the American dream, small business and the middle class are being murdered.

 

Wayne Gorsek wanted me to end this story by reminding everyone to only buy “Made in USA” brands whenever possible to support those companies creating jobs in the USA.

 

Here’s How to Impeach Obama…for Consumer Fraud

Print Friendly

 

 

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

One third of Americans want to impeach President Obama.

Although many Republican leaders, like House Speaker John Boehner, think there are no grounds for impeachment, or just not enough evidence to convict, the group that supports impeachment thinks there is more than enough evidence ranging from the IRS scandal, to Benghazi, to Fast & Furious, to various instances of government overreach and violations of the Constitution with Executive Orders.

I believe they’ve all got it wrong. The perfect impeachment charge isn’t any of those. It isn’t even the soon-to-be-charge of violating the Constitution by giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens through Executive Order (rumored to be coming within 30 days).

The perfect impeachment charge is FRAUD. 

Consumer fraud was committed when President Obama knowingly lied, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” And “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.” And “Your insurance premiums will not go up.” There is no question Obama knew they were lies when he said them…

AND THAT IS CLEARLY FRAUD!

This crime has 300 million witnesses. This crime was recorded on television dozens of times. This crime is easy to prove. You can add in all the other scandals, frauds, and lies as Articles of Impeachment 2-10, but Article #1 is the Obamacare lies.

And here’s the important part- this crime resonates with the average American. This crime hits home- it’s costing them dearly (in the pocketbook), and also some with their lives (cancer patients who have lost their insurance). Americans already talk about this crime in their living room and around the kitchen table.

This crime is simple, easy to prove, and easy for the average American to understand. Obama knowingly used fraud, lies, misrepresentation and coercion (by the IRS) to induce Americans to support Obamacare, knowing if he told the truth they would never support it. We the citizens of America are victims of a massive criminal conspiracy. The man at the center of this world-class fraud is Barack Obama.

If you have any doubt this was a criminal act, let’s compare the crimes committed by Obama to those of convicted TV infomercial conman, Kevin Trudeau. Remember him? His 30-minute infomercials ran day and night on cable TV for the past decade. This past February Obama’s own administration convicted and sentenced Trudeau to 10 years in federal prison for knowingly making untrue statements about a weight loss book he was selling.

I don’t question whether Mr. Trudeau is a fraud. I’m sure he got what was coming to him. But Trudeau is a small time crook compared to our President. Obama scammed millions of Americans out of their health insurance, raised prices dramatically (thereby damaging and bankrupting the middle class), killed millions of jobs (ask the Congressional Budget Office about that one) and arguably contributed to a number of deaths (with many more to come).

In my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class,” I made the prediction that we’d soon hear about sick Americans who died because of Obamacare. The wait is over. Linda Rolain, a Las Vegas woman, lost her battle last month to brain cancer after a 3-month delay due to the faulty design of the Nevada Obamacare exchange.

The government accused Trudeau of lying and exaggerating to sell his weight loss book. Their argument is that he called weight loss “easy” on TV…but then when you actually read the book you found out it’s pretty hard to lose weight. The government argued without the lies, he couldn’t have sold the book and that is fraud.

Isn’t that exactly how Obama sold Obamacare? He knowingly lied again and again. He painted a picture of 30 million new patients, but no cost increases. As a matter of fact he claimed costs would be reduced. He relied on words like “free”… “no cost”… “prices will go down”… “the debt will go down”… “no jobs will be lost”…and “Obamacare will help the economy.” All lies, and he knew it all along – pure fraud. The kind of fraud that results in long prison sentences for private sector CEOs.

The biggest whopper of all: “If you like your insurance you can keep it.” He told this lie while his own internal White House reports showed that up to 93 million Americans would lose their insurance because of Obamacare. http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2013/10/31/obama-officials-in-2010-93-million-americans-will-be-unable-to-keep-their-health-plans-under-obamacare/

Obama told the middle class a lie to sell his product, because he knew if he told the truth, no one would buy it. How does that differ from Kevin Trudeau?

Like Kevin Trudeau, Obama could never have sold Obamacare to the American people without lying and misrepresenting. But Obama’s fraud didn’t cost us $30 each. Obama’s fraud is costing each of us thousands of dollars per year. Obama’s fraud may add up to the first-ever trillion dollar scam. Bernie Madoff get out of the way. Obama is arguably the biggest thief in world history.

And some of us will lose our lives because of his fraud. Ask Linda Rolain’s family about that.

If Kevin Trudeau deserves ten years in prison, shouldn’t Obama receive a life sentence for the fraud he’s committed?

While it is my personal belief that Obamacare was always the centerpiece of Obama’s purposeful plan to “Murder the Middle Class,” and kill capitalism, there is no possible doubt that legally and constitutionally the lies told by Obama (on camera) to sell Obamacare are an impeachable offense.

Postscript: Day ago, the health insurance policy for my family of six was cancelled by Aetna, who blamed the cancellation on the mandates of Obamacare. Under President Obama my health insurance premium has gone from $500 per month to $1,700 per month. Now it is cancelled.

I can testify as to the fraud committed. I am a witness to the murder of the middle class. Obama must pay. If no business is too big to fail, I think we can all agree that no political leader is too big to jail.

It’s time for impeachment.

I Can Put Obama at the Scene of the Crime

As published at World Net Daily

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launched Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed by the purposeful “Murder of the Middle Class” and death of the American Dream. It is not happening by accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the greatest conspiracy in world history. 

 

The ringleader is Barack Obama and I can put Obama at the scene of the crime. 

 

How can I do that? I was Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. You need to know about Obama and his plan to “murder the middle class” To stop it we first have to understand it.

 

First, at Columbia we were repeatedly told America is a land of “unfairness, inequality, and lack of social justice.” Recognize those words? My classmates proudly called themselves progressives and socialists, even Marxists. They talked about how to dismantle the “power structure”, the rich and the business owners- especially white ones. This is especially interesting since almost all my Columbia classmates were spoiled-brat white kids from the best prep schools in America, where their massive white guilt brainwashing started early.

 

We were taught to hate capitalism and believe it had to be destroyed so America’s wealth could be redistributed to create “fairness and equality.” Sound familiar?

 

At Columbia we studied “The Communist Manifesto,” Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the Cloward and Piven plan to transform America.

 

In 1981 a student burst through the doors to our political science class and screamed “The President has been shot. They’ve assassinated Reagan”… my classmates yelled, hugged, high-fived, jumped up and down cheered (what they mistakenly thought was) the death of a Republican President. Today those classmates are in government with Obama, or controlling the mainstream media. They may talk about “moderation and compromise,” but remember, 30 years ago they cheered for the death of a Republican President. 

 

Most importantly, we were taught a simple, but brilliant plan called “Cloward-Piven,” after former Columbia professors Richard Cloward and Frances Piven. The plan called for the destruction of capitalism and American exceptionalism by overwhelming the system with massive spending, entitlements and debt. That would collapse the economy, wipe out the middle class, and bring Americans to their knees, begging government to save them. Sound familiar? It’s the exact plan Obama has been implementing.

 

We were taught at Columbia a key component of the plan involved fooling the voters by calling yourself “moderate”, never admit your real goals.  We were taught to demonize your opponents, calling them evil, greedy, extreme, radical, and even “terrorist.” Put your opponents on the defense by calling them the very things you are. Lie, misrepresent, and commit fraud because “The ends justify the means.” Obama learned well.

 

Obama claims Obamacare is about “saving the uninsured”, when its real objective is income redistribution to destroy the middle class. Environmental regulations are to “protect us from global warming,” when its real goal is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills. Immigration reform is always about “protecting innocent children,” when its real goal is to create 12 million new Democratic voters. High taxes are to “create equality,” when they are all about starving Obama’s political opposition. Obscene government spending is always about “helping widows and orphans,” as opposed to creating more debt to overwhelm the system. Higher teacher salaries are “for the kids,” as opposed to enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians. Bailing out GM was to “save jobs,” as opposed to saving bloated auto union pensions. 

 

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class, redistributing wealth, and putting big government in control of our every move.  

 

The key to it all is to “boil the frog slowly,” something we also learned at Columbia.  Set the fire low, so the frog (in this case the middle class) wouldn’t know what was happening until he’s cooked. 

 

That’s why Obama starts and ends every speech with “I’m here to save the middle class,” while his actions are annihilating them. He’s boiling the frog slowly. By the time the middle class realizes he’s the killer, and we’re the prey, we’ll already be dead. 

 

So you see, it’s not due to coincidence, incompetence, or even George Bush.  It’s all according to plan.  A plan Obama learned at Columbia. Everything Obama does, and everything happening to the U.S. economy, all started at Columbia. The entire Obama agenda to overwhelm the system, destroy capitalism, and murder the middle class was hatched at Columbia. Obama may not have attended class, but he learned well. He should have received the Karl Marx Award for “Student Most Likely to Destroy America.”

 

That’s why Columbia matters. You must know your enemy before you can defeat him. Columbia University is a window into Obama’s soul. That’s why I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class,” to give all American’s the information and tools to save the middle class and the American Dream.  This fight is just getting started. God Bless America.

What is the Murder of the Middle Class?

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” http://www.amazon.com/Murder-Middle-Class-Yourself-Conspiracy/dp/1621572218/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1401676290&sr=1-2 launches today Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated “Murder of the Middle Class.” This is no accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

 

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the IRS, EPA, NSA, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

 

Lies and fraud are at the center of this “murder of the middle class.” President Obama and various big government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their WMD- weapon of mass distraction.

 

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured”…when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

 

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming…when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

 

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children”…when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force…depress middle class wages for generations to come…create 12 million future Democratic voters…and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle class taxpayers, to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democrat Party.

 

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality”… when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates- small business and the middle class.

 

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” …when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions back to Democrat politicians.

 

They claim bailing out GM was to “save jobs”…when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians.

 

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy”…when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year, while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

 

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

 

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim, “It’s all okay. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away, there’s nothing to see here.”

 

It’s not okay. This author was just notified by his health insurance company that my family’s policy has been cancelled. When Obama was elected my bill was $500 per month. Today it’s $1700 per month. But now my family will have no insurance at all, because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

 

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president. How can middle class people survive, without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

 

All this while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The GDP for the first quarter was NEGATIVE 2.9%, one of the worst showings in history, six years after Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

 

No, things are not alright. Here are just a few of the facts from my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class:”

 

China is set to pass America as the world’s #1 economy based on consumer spending. THIS YEAR. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the #1 economy in the world.
