Are Key Republican Leaders in D.C. Being Blackmailed?

Print Friendly

Are key Republican leaders in D.C. from the Senate, House and Supreme Court being blackmailed? Tell me you haven’t thought the exact same thing? Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in DC. Rotten like a dead fish left at the front door of a Congressmen’s office by the Obama Crime Family. Rotten like a photo of a Supreme Court Justice with his robe down at his ankles.

Because what’s happening just isn’t normal. Please tell me how it’s possible that President Obama and his socialist cabal suffered the most massive and historic defeat in modern political history only 9 months ago- and since then they’ve gotten everything they’ve ever wanted handed to them on a silver platter. Does that make sense to you?

How’s it possible that the GOP- the party that won in a massive historic landslide gained nothing and won nothing? Not one victory. Zero. Zilch. Or in a language Democrats understand “Nada.”

Not only did Obama’s party lose badly…they lost everywhere from top to bottom. Senate. House. State Legislatures. Mayors. Governors. You name it. They lost the Governorships of deep blue Maryland and Massachusetts. They were destroyed.

And it was all about Obama. He wasn’t defeated- he was repudiated. Democrat Senate candidates refused his help. Democrats would not stand next to him on the same stage. Democrats treated Obama like a New Jersey toxic waste dump. Democrats treated Obama like a rotten fish.

Since then…conservatives have lost everything. Name something we won or achieved after that smashing victory? Name one thing. Name anything. I dare you. I double dare you.

And you don’t think someone has photos of GOP leaders in bed with little boys?

Far fetched? Really? Think 2 words: Dennis Hasert. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/dennis-hastert-scandal/story?id=31443570

Somehow the government knew he was taking his own money out of his own bank account. I didn’t even know that was a crime warranting an interview by the FBI. But this government knew. That’s because they know everything.

They are watching everything we do, everything we say, text, email, take out of our bank accounts. They know if we spit on the street. They know if we are having a fight with our spouse. They know what tax deductions we take. They know what stocks we own. Why is all that important? Because if you only use that information against the key members of one party, YOU CONTROL THE COUNTRY.

Ask Dennis Hasert.

Ask General David Petreus- they knew he was having an affair. http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/23/politics/david-petraeus-sentencing/  Now he has a criminal record.

Ask former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2015/01/13/bob-mcdonnell-bond/21687247/

He’s going to prison for stuff so minor, it almost makes you laugh. It’s almost as minor as taking your own money out of your own bank account.

Notice all of these people have one thing in common- they were powerful conservatives and opponents of Obama.

Still think I’m “reaching.” Still doubt me? Really? Are you even aware that last Thursday…on the same day that Justice Roberts and the Supremes upheld Obamacare again…the Tax Inspector General of the United States (the key IRS watchdog) reported to Congress that the IRS purposely destroyed evidence of a crime. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/06/24/watchdog-irs-erased-backups-after-loss-tea-party-emails

Is it impossible to imagine that this same Obama administration that orders IRS attacks against critics of the President (like me), then orders destruction of key evidence, would stop at nothing to save Obama’s signature achievement?

Is it impossible to believe that Obama and his socialist cabal who learned from Saul Alinsky that “the ends justify the means” would hold something over a Supreme Court Justice’s head?

It’s time to ask the question loudly and boldly because something is clearly wrong in Washington DC. Is that the purpose of government agencies like the IRS, DOJ, FBI, SEC and the NSA that are abusing our rights- to listen to us…to watch us…to find something we’ve done wrong…and then use it to intimidate, harass, threaten or extort key conservative figures so that Obama can “fundamentally change America”?

It’s time to start asking the question. It’s time to be cynical. It’s time to assume the worst of this government. Was Supreme Court Justice Roberts blackmailed or intimidated? I would put nothing by this administration that lives and rules by the Chicago thug playbook.

Justice Roberts voting for Obamacare twice is as likely as me voting to save Obamacare. Like me, Justice Roberts is a lifelong dedicated conservative warrior. He was born to kill Obamacare. He was appointed by President Bush to become the key conservative vote to block “the fundamental transformation of America.”

Justice Roberts was born, raised and groomed for one job in this life- to join that Supreme Court, strike down Obamacare, protect the Constitution and end big government overreach. Yet he is the man responsible for saving Obamacare- twice. His legacy as a “conservative warrior” will be that he protected big government, supported government overreach and helped to hasten the fundamental transformation of America. This doesn’t seem odd to you? This doesn’t smell rotten?

I have felt the same way about Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for years now. Something is wrong. All it takes to destroy America and pass Obama’s agenda is to control a few key powerful conservative leaders in DC. Boehner and McConnell have never blocked anything Obama really wanted. Heck they just joined hands to hand Obama a big victory with TPA and TPP- a trade agreement so fantastic that it’s been declared “classified” so no one can read it before they vote on it.

All it would take to block any attempt to stop or stall Obama’s agenda is blackmail against a few key Republicans in positions of power- like Boehner, McConnell and Justice Roberts. Find out the weak link of a key political leader or government official and hold it over their heads.

What makes anyone think the government and it’s 3-letter agencies (IRS, NSA, DOJ, FBI, SEC) don’t know everything bad about everyone in key positions in DC? What makes you think that blackmail isn’t happening every day to conservative politicians- except it’s the government doing the blackmailing?

You know…the same government that asked the IRS to target key critics of this President- like me. http://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2015/05/07/americans-hate-bullying-but-whos-the-biggest-bully-in-america-obama-n1995486

And then ordered the IRS to destroy the evidence.

The same government that told you “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.”

The same government that says there is no problem with $18 trillion in debt, while Greece collapses under debt one thousand times smaller than America’s debt. Or didn’t you know that Greek banks are literally out of money and Greece is on the verge of a massive collapse that threatens to take down the entire EU. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/06/29/world-markets-plunge-bank-lines-grow-amid-greece-financial-crisis 

The same government that indicted both rating agencies immediately after they dared to downgrade the credit rating of the United States for the first time in history. http://money.cnn.com/2013/09/04/news/companies/sandp-downgrade-lawsuit/

Just a guess, but here’s how I think it goes. I think they walk up to a key politician like John Boehner or Justice Roberts and they offer both a carrot and stick. They threaten to expose something terrible like an affair, or corruption, or malfeasance, or immorality that would shock the nation, ruin your career, destroy your legacy, cost you your marriage, destroy your relationship with your children and leave you unemployable by any respectable law firm or lobbyist. That’s what’s behind door number one.

Or if you see the light and vote our way, you get to continue playing big shot, your legacy is untouched, your family loves you, and you retire someday to a $5 million per year lobbying job (like Dennis Hastert). That’s what’s behind door number two.

Which would you choose?

Trust me- those options are being offered every day by the Obama Crime Family to key political figures in DC. Republicans are being blackmailed, intimidated, extorted and bribed.

That explains Justice Roberts and the Supremes ruling against us again. That explains why we keep winning elections, yet we keep gaining nothing and losing everything. It’s all been fixed.

The Obama Crime Family is in charge.

DONALD TRUMP IS “BULLWORTH”

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

I know. I know. “Trump is flawed” the critics say. “He is a clown.” “He is a buffoon.” “He’s divorced…twice.” “He has business bankruptcies.” Yes all true. And Reagan was a failed B-movie actor who played second fiddle to a chimp. Heck, Reagan had a failed Vegas lounge act that closed in a week. Reagan was rejected by United Artists executives to PLAY the part of a president. Two years later he was Governor of California. Then he went onto become the man polls show is regarded as our greatest modern president. Could Donald Trump be “Reagan- Part Duex?”

 

Yes, Donald Trump is flawed. But ironically he may be the perfect candidate at the perfect time. Why? Because he says whatever is on his mind. He has no filters. He doesn’t care about political correctness. He doesn’t answer to anyone- not donors, not handlers, not consultants, not pollsters and God bless him- not the media. Donald Trump is his own man. Trump says whatever he wants because he is worth $9 billion dollars.

 

“The Donald” doesn’t need any donations. He doesn’t need the support of fat cat donors or multi-national corporations like the other GOP candidates. He doesn’t need scandalous donations (aka bribes) from foreign governments like Hillary Clinton. Hillary is greedy. We know she thinks of herself as broke. Her hubby Bill says he’s still worried about “paying the bills.” Desperate people do desperate things. But Donald Trump has $9 billion dollars. He never has to do desperate things. He has 9 billion reasons to say whatever he wants- and let the chips fall where hey may.

 

Donald Trump is free to become “Bullworth.” Remember that 1998 movie starring Warren Beatty as U.S. Senator Bullworth? He didn’t give a damn what people thought anymore, so he said whatever he wanted. He told the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Bullworth stood at the pulpit of a black church and told black voters that the Democratic Party and their politicians claim to want to help you, make all kinds of promises, but they are all lying to get your vote. Then after the election they’re nowhere to be found. They never keep those promises. Why? “Because you don’t donate enough money,” Bullworth admitted. “What’s the proof?” Bullworth asked. “Half your kids are unemployed, the other half are in prison.” The truth hasn’t changed since 1998.

 

Bullworth dared to tell the truth. And the people loved it! Not only was Bullworth re-elected, he became an instant media sensation and the shocking favorite of voters for President. Honesty is that refreshing. Can real-life imitate art. We are about to find out.

 

Donald Trump is the real-life Bullworth. When voters listen to the raw truth of Trump next to the “mainstream, establishment candidates” who tell lie after lie to get elected, Donald will shine by comparison. Suddenly it will all become clear- the lies and B.S. aren’t working. The other candidates are scamming you, bribing you, placating you. It’s time for someone willing to tell it like it is. It’s time for a real-life Bullworth.

 

Maybe, just maybe, Trump will admit out loud the damage Obama has done to our economy with his socialist policies. It’s time for a politician to ask what socialism did for Greece, or Spain, or Italy, or France, or miserable Cuba? Or Venezuela with food and toilet paper shortages. And what has over 50 straight years of Democrat leadership done for bankrupt crime-ridden hellholes like Detroit, Chicago or Baltimore? I’m betting Trump is the guy willing to tell the truth.

 

Maybe he’ll admit there is no recovery. It’s all a lie. A mirage. The numbers are gamed. It’s all created with fake money printing by the Fed; artificially low interest rates; and half the country being propped up by government checks.

 

Maybe he’ll admit that the border is wide open and the illegals flowing across will destroy middle class jobs and drown our nation under a tsunami of welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and the costs for cops, courts and prison. Maybe Trump will tell you that anyone who says illegal immigration is good for the economy is a liar.

 

Maybe he’ll admit that our open border will soon lead to a terrible terrorist attack. Maybne he’ll ask out loud “What kind of president would purposely leave the border open?”

 

Maybe he’ll admit the taxes aren’t “historically low” as Obama claims. The taxes are in fact “too damn high.” High taxes are killing entrepreneurship and jobs. If billion dollar corporations are so damaged by the 35% corporate tax rate they are forced to escape America with “inversions,” then why isn’t any politician admitting the 43.8% top individual tax rate is damaging taxpayers and killing even more jobs? Maybe the average taxpayer needs an inversion too! I’m betting Trump is the guy to say it.

 

Maybe he’ll admit public schools are failing and dumbing-down our children. Your kids are not learning. They are not prepared to compete in the global marketplace. And the problem isn’t money. We already spend too much on education. The problem is teachers unions and bad teachers who can’t be fired.

 

Maybe he’ll admit we have too many government employees and they are paid way too much. Their obscene pensions are bankrupting cities, counties, states and our entire federal government. Those pensions can never be paid in full. Someone needs to admit that. I’m betting Trump will be that guy.

 

Maybe he’ll admit there are no quality jobs because of thousands of pages of new regulations…and Obamacare’s 2.1 million words of regulations…and insane EPA mandates…and thousands of more “climate change” regulations coming down the pike.

 

Trump has already bravely pointed out that black unemployment is twice as high as white unemployment, thereby proving Obama has been a terrible president for the same black Americans he claims to support.

 

Maybe Trump will point out we have absolutely no plan to stop ISIS and they are winning.

 

Maybe Trump will point out that Obama’s policies are bad for Israel and Jewish voters are crazy to support Obama.

 

Maybe, just maybe America is ready to hear the truth. And Donald Trump is just the man to tell it like it is.

 

Will Trump win the presidency? The jury is still out. But he will be a breath of fresh air. He will wake the voters up. A real-life Bullworth has arrived. Donald Trump will certainly make the 2016 race for president fun. I can’t wait.

What Just Happened in Las Vegas, Nevada Could Destroy the GOP

Print Friendly

You know that famous saying, “Elections have consequences.” Well it’s not true. At least not when Republicans win elections. Republicans are the stupid party. Only Republicans could win a record-setting historic landslide and still allow liberals to control the agenda. It just happened in my hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. And trust me- it’s headed your way. You need to hear this story, study it and get ready to fight it before it happens in your state.

It’s already happening on the national level. Republican cowards in Congress are backstabbing their own voters- the same loyal base that handed them the biggest victory in modern American political history. Or have you noticed any progress in stopping or even slowing Obama’s agenda since that landslide? Have you seen Congress cutting any spending? Cutting even one tax? Starving the funding for Obamacare? An end to the border crisis? Any attempt by Congress to stop Obama’s amnesty for illegals?

Worse, have you read about the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) mystery? Republicans are helping Obama pass major legislation that could kill millions of American jobs, yet they admit they’ve never read it. No one on Capital Hill has any idea what’s in it. The full details of TPP are kept in a special guarded room. Why? Something buried deep in the details must be very very very bad. If Obama supports it, it can’t promote free trade. It must support socialism, economy-killing climate change regulations and open borders. Yet the GOP is blindly helping Obama pass it. Great job boys!

So why did we win in a landslide? What was accomplished? Where are the “consequences” of “elections have consequences”? Only the GOP could win in a landslide and lose. This is the gang who can’t shoot straight. This is a team of half wits who never miss an opportunity to shoot themselves in the foot.

But nothing happening in DC compares to the idiots running the Nevada GOP. They take the grand prize for “Stupidest Republicans in America.” Not just stupid, but traitors too. And liars. They committed fraud upon their own voters. You have to hear this story.

Like the rest of America, the Nevada the GOP enjoyed a landslide victory last November. We won EVERYTHING. Governor, Lt. Governor, all five constitutional offices, the State Senate and the State Assembly. This is the first time the GOP has controlled all of those offices since the 1920’s. The voters spoke loudly. They wanted smaller government, lower taxes and less spending. Not only that but a ballot referendum supporting a business margins tax on corporations was voted down by a 3 to 1 margin. THREE-TO-ONE. This was the anti-tax, anti-big government sweep of a lifetime. Historic. Revolutionary.

You’d think the party that WON would understand the message, right? WRONG.

So what did the Nevada GOP do with such a magnificent mandate? They rewarded the same conservative anti-tax voters who had just given them a mandate to hold down the size of government and taxes…with a proposal for the biggest tax increase in Nevada history. Yes, I said tax increase. And with the help of a Republican Senate and Republican Assembly, it passed last week. Our Nevada business taxes just grew by $1.5 billion. Worse, this isn’t an old-fashioned business tax on profits. This is a tax on revenue. So companies that breakeven or lose money now owe taxes. This is basically the same “margins tax” that lost 3 to 1 on the ballot only months ago. It lost in a landslide so Republican Governor Brian Sandoval decided to resurrect it and have Republicans own it and pass it.

Let’s make sure you get this straight. We elected Republicans in a historic landslide to control every office in Nevada…and voted down new taxes by a 3 to 1 margin…just so Republicans could turnaround and give us the biggest tax increase in history and dramatically expand the size of government.

Then in a sign of pure insanity or delusion, Republican legislators rubbed salt in the wound in the Nevada newspaper (the Review Journal). Republican leaders gloated over the massive record-setting tax increase they just passed. One of them proudly stated, “We proved Republicans can pass tax increases.” The Republican politicians of this state are without a doubt the stupidest Republicans in America. Let’s examine honestly and openly what they have done. Here are the 5 sins of the Nevada GOP. And trust me…they are coming to a state near you.

SIN #1) STUPIDITY:

It’s not a crime to support higher taxes. There is a fair and honest debate. If you support raising taxes you have every right to your opinion. But you need to switch parties to the Democrat Party. You can’t call yourself a Republican and then oppose the main tenant of your own platform. That’s like opening up a Kosher restaurant that specializes in pork and shellfish. No one could be that dumb, could they? Look no further than Governor Brian Sandoval and the Nevada GOP leadership.

If you stand for raising my taxes, what makes you different than a Democrat? Who needs Republicans to pass the biggest tax increase in Nevada history? If we had elected Democrats they would have passed the exact same thing. Conservatives won in a landslide and got the liberal Democrat agenda. Something smells rotten in Vegas. More on that in a minute.

To deepen the mystery, GOP legislators are bragging about it. You’re so dumb you don’t even understand your own party’s platform? Or maybe like Nancy Pelosi, you had to pass the bill so you can read what’s in it? You are clearly either confused…delusional…in the wrong party…completely misunderstood the landslide that YOU won…or you’re frauds and conmen.

SIN #2) IGNORANCE:

In business and politics, branding is everything. If people don’t understand or remember your brand, you’re out of business. The Democratic Party brand is “tax and spend” and increase the size of government. The GOP brand is lower taxes, less spending and reduce the size of government. These are facts. They are written in each party’s platform- their own personal constitution. What the Nevada GOP just did was suicide. You are morons. When you’re alone at night do you press sharp objects against your skin? Do you cut yourselves? Because you are clearly mentally ill. This is how you put yourself out of business. Your brand is lower taxes…you won with that brand in a landslide…so you decided to vote for the biggest tax increase in history?

SIN #3) BETRAYAL:

Worse and even dumber, you betrayed the trust of your own base- your most loyal supporters. You’ve violated the most important rules of business:

First, the customer is always right. Second, if your customer is wrong, refer back to the first rule.

You just stabbed your own biggest supporters in the back. Name any business in America where any smart businessman screws his own base of most-loyal customers? This would be like a hip-hop urban radio station deciding to play country music for it’s urban audience that hates country music. Bizarre. Result? They’d be out of business within days…if their radio station wasn’t burned to the ground by angry mobs first. Lesson learned? Never bite the hand of your own customer. Only the smug establishment GOP could be this stupid.

SIN #4) FRAUD:
Worst of all, Nevada’s GOP leaders are bragging about committing fraud. If they wanted to pass the largest tax increase in history, why didn’t they campaign on that idea? Why didn’t they say “I am proud to be running as a Republican to raise your taxes. I promise to pass the biggest tax increase in Nevada history.” But instead they lied and misrepresented their agenda. Why? Because they could never have been electing telling the truth. Isn’t that the definition of fraud? Of bait and switch? They lied to their own customers about their own product and what it does.

Here’s the big question. Who paid them? Because this sure smells bad. It smells like mafia-controlled garbage contractors. It smells like dead fish. Has someone been promised millions in a Swiss bank account…or million dollar lobbyist jobs…or million dollar corporate jobs? That would explain why Nevada Republican leaders are so smug…so giddy…at the idea they’ve just lied to and backstabbed their own voters. Instead of hiding, or being humble in victory, or even pretending they didn’t do what they did…they are publicly doing backflips and high fives. Someone is clearly celebrating because they won the lottery. Someone who voted “YES” against every principle of conservatism is headed to a safety deposit box to count their newfound riches. Just an educated guess.

SIN #5) NEVER MISS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOOT YOURSELVES IN THE FOOT

Nevada is next door to California. The People’s Republic of California now has the highest taxes in the nation. Rich people, middle class people and small business owners are leaving in droves. Wait it gets worse- California is so dumb they just voted to give Medicaid to illegal immigrants. California is both insane and about to go bankrupt. They owe over $200 billion in debt. Within 5 years the state will be unable to pay bills. They will need a federal bailout. Everyone with high income, assets or common sense is making plans to leave.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to showcase Nevada as the perfect alternative? Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to showcase us as the lowest tax state in the nation? As the state that protects taxpayers and business owners? Who would be dumb enough to ruin that brand, at this perfect moment in time to capture most of the tax refugees living right next door? The answer to who could be that dumb…is Nevada’s Republican Governor Brian Sandoval and all the Republicans in the legislature who stabbed their own supporters in the back.

Don’t elections have consequences? Aren’t the winners supposed to reward their supporters? Aren’t the winners supposed to impose their agenda? What did Republican voters get? They got screwed by their own party. The dumbest Republicans in America reside in Nevada- and they just committed fraud. They lied to the voters about what they believed in, their agenda, what they’d do once elected. Bernie Madoff has nothing on the Republican Governor and GOP leadership of Nevada.

As for the sins you’ve committed- dramatically increasing spending, taxes and the size of government- you will all pay a big price in the next election. I promise you.

 

 

 

 

We Have Suicide Bomber in the White House

Print Friendly

 

 

By Wayne Allyn Root

I told you so. Forget ISIS. Forget Al Queda. Forget Putin. Forget China. The worst threat to America is Barack Hussein Obama.

I’ve screamed from the highest mountains for almost seven long years now that we have a suicide bomber in the White House. Obama is dive-bombing our nation’s economy the same way that the Germanwings Airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago. http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/03/europe/france-germanwings-plane-crash-main/

Except this isn’t one plane and a couple hundred souls. Obama is taking the entire American economy and all of us down with him.

I’ve told everyone and anyone who would listen for almost seven years that Obama is following the exact plan he learned as my college classmate at Columbia University Class of ‘83. The plan is called “Cloward-Piven.”

The plan is simple: to destroy capitalism and “American exceptionalism” you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to halt, full-time jobs are killed, businesses fail in record numbers, the middle class is murdered financially, the debt implodes and the economy is overwhelmed.

Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.

To make this plan work Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.

How does this end? According to Cloward-Piven a majority of Americans wind up dependent on government, they vote out of desperation for whatever political party promises to keep the checks coming or better yet, expand the checks. Then slowly, like boiling a frog who doesn’t realize what’s happening until he’s dead, capitalism dies. The very same people destroyed by government are now dependent on government to survive, they beg government to save them, and that opens the door to a Big Brother socialist economic system.

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.

You don’t have to believe me. Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter U.S. GDP growth was NEGATIVE. http://www.consumerindexes.com/2015-05-29_commentary.html

This is proof that the plan is working. The US economy is in reverse. We are in quicksand and we’re all drowning. Obama is taking us down like a suicide bomber.

These aren’t opinions. This is a fact. Now you just have to decide based on the evidence of a dying economy after almost seven years under Obama…

Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot…dangerous to himself and everyone around him…or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism.

Because it’s either it’s one or the other.

Here are the facts. The first quarter GDP (Gross Domestic Product) – which is the measurement of our economy- was just revised on Friday to negative 0.07%. This number is a disaster.

But this isn’t some aberration or outlier. This is the entire Obama presidency. Obama’s seven first quarters as president are at a combined average of NEGATIVE 0.43%. Obama is the only president in the history of America’s recorded economic measurement to accomplish this. http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/terence-p-jeffrey/blame-it-global-cooling-obama-has-lowest-average-1stq-gdp-growth-any

Let me repeat: This is the worst seven-year record in the history of America’s recorded GDP.

Obama is also the only president in history to have produced four separate first quarters that were negative. We started measuring GDP in 1947. Obama is certainly one of a kind…a trendsetter. He is setting records for disaster and futility never before imagined in the greatest country in world history. And guess what? We’re all going along for the ride. I hope you buckled your seatbelt.

Yet no one in the GOP leadership in DC is willing to say out loud and “on the record” that something is very wrong…that this isn’t normal.

No one in the GOP leadership is willing to say this isn’t possible to do by mistake. No one is this stupid.

No one in the GOP leadership is willing to suggest there is a madman…a suicide bomber at the controls, taking our economy and country down just like that German pilot dive-bombed that plane into the ground two months ago.

Want more proof? The average first quarter GDP since measurements began in 1947 was 4.0%. Here are the numbers for each president in the past half century.:

Under Harry Truman it was 4.5%.

Under Eisenhower it was 3.2%.

Under Kennedy it was 4.9%.

Under LBJ it was 8.3%.

Under Nixon 5.3%.

Under Ford 2.3%.

Under Carter 2.4%.

Under Reagan 2.1% (and that was because Reagan inherited disaster from Carter).

Under HW Bush it was 2.9%.

Under Clinton 2.6%.

Under George W. Bush 1.7%.

Under Obama here are the seven 1st quarters:

NEGATIVE 5.4%.

1.7%.

NEGATIVE 1.5%.

2.3%

2.7%.

NEGATIVE 2.1%.

NEGATIVE 0.07%.

Let me repeat…

That’s the worst record in recorded history. 

That’s the only NEGATIVE average in recorded history. 

That’s the only time we’ve had four negative first quarters in history.

What’s the excuse? Winter? Cold weather in the first quarter? Really? So America didn’t have winter under Truman or JFK or LBJ? Winter is a new phenomenon that only effects Obama’s first quarter?

Even more compelling, don’t Canada, Russia and China have winter in the first quarter too? So how come their GDP growth isn’t affected by winter?

Here’s the thing folks. Economists are saying the second quarter of 2015 doesn’t look much better than the shocking first quarter. Last I checked there is no winter in April, May and June. So why is this quarter off to the same kind of start? Why did all of this economic decline happen while gas prices plummeted? Economists predict a “windfall” for consumers because of lower gas prices. Yet the economy dive bombed and consumer spending stalled- even with cheap gas prices.

And it isn’t just first quarters. The GDP for all quarters under Obama to start this decade- if it stays at the same level for the last five years of this decade- would translate to less than half the growth of the decade of the 1960′s.

LESS THAN HALF.

It’s clear “who” and “what” is to blame. The who is a suicide bomber in the White House named Barack Obama. The what is “Cloward-Piven.” Obama has exploded spending, entitlements, dependency, regulations and debt to destroy capitalism and the US economy. He has set world records in each of those categories- the most spending ever, the most entitlement spending ever, the most regulations and cost of regulations ever, the most debt ever created in world history. Cloward-Piven.

The facts are in. The results are in. No president could be this stupid. No president could be this ignorant. No one could produce a record this bad by mistake. It isn’t possible.

It’s time to say the unthinkable out loud…

We have a suicide bomber in the White House.

 

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.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/28/politics/irs-watchdog-finds-6400-missing-lois-lerner-emails

 

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

President

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.

 

http://blogs.wsj.com/totalreturn/2015/03/17/no-thats-not-the-irs-calling-just-hang-up

 

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?

 

“SENSITIVE CASE.”

 

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. http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/baltimore-city-mayor-allows-rioters-space-to-destroy-during-weekend-violent-protests-video

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. http://www.ncpa.org/sub/dpd/index.php?Article_ID=25288

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. https://twitter.com/search?q=sally%20kohn&src=typd

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.

TRICKY DICKY HILLARY

Print Friendly

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. http://nypost.com/2015/04/12/hillary-clinton-faces-scandal-amid-expectant-presidential-run/

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 www.ROOTforAmerica.com. 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.

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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