BREAKING NEWS: Obama Arranged Benghazi Trip That Resulted In Murder Of US AMB Chris Stevens


September 11, 2012 U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were murdered on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11. From the very beginning the Obama White House with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by Obama’s side took to the media claiming that the torture, rape and murder of the first United States Ambassador since 1979 was the result of some obscure YouTube video (that from its uploading on July 2, 2012 to September 10, 2012 had all of 17 views) mocking the prophet Muhammad.

Thirty-five days later we are still allowing the media and the Obama Administration to hide the truth and continue in their deliberately reporting information they KNOW to be untrue while refusing to address these facts which come from US State Department and Obama White House sources.
Deroy Murdock: Benghazi’s inconvenient truths
Sept. 11: Despite anti-video demonstrations in Cairo, Benghazi is tranquil. According to U.S. diplomats, “everything is calm. There’s nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside. No protests all day.”
At 9:40 p.m. local time, however, gunfire and explosions rock the consulate.
Sept. 12: As these homicides become clear, Obama says, “We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification for this type of senseless violence. None.” Obama then skips his daily intelligence briefing and jets to a Las Vegas fundraiser.
Sept. 13: “The United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declares. “We absolutely reject its content and message.”
Sept. 14: “The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announces.
That day, as the murdered Americans’ remains reach Andrews Air Force Base, Clinton says: “We have seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
Sept. 16: United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice calls the violence “a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video.”
Sept. 18: Obama tells comedian David Letterman that he rejects the “extremely offensive video directed at Mohammed and Islam.” Obama adds that “extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the consulate in Libya.”
Sept. 19: Team Obama abruptly changes tunes. National Counterterrorism Director Matthew Olsen informs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, “I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy.”

AMB Chris Stevens was NOT surprised by his killers in Benghazi, Libya as has been portrayed thus far. According to sources in the State Department Chris Stevens was in Benghazi, Libya at the specific instruction of the Obama White House to recover weapons that the U.S. supplied to Libya rebels in the over throw of Gaddafi. These sources who work in the State Department and the Obama White House say that Barack Obama was directly involved in negotiations with Libyan Rebels in an effort to recover weapons that the U.S. supplied them. Sources say that the arrangements were made between Barack Obama direct talks and that the White House directly arranged for AMB Stevens to travel to Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and it was by direction of Barack Obama that Stevens was to meet with the very individuals who tortured, raped and murdered him.

These same sources state that the YouTube video which was put out by the White House and was reported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as being responsible for the Benghazi attack; had been taken by the Obama administration even before the September 11, 2012 murders for the specific intent to blame it in the event the Obama arranged weapons recovery went awry.

We can continue to play the word games all we want over who denied the request for additional security; or when did Obama or Clinton know that the Benghazi Consulate was “attacked,” but to do so is not going to bring about the truth. The truth is clear:

1. Barack Obama personally and directly arranged for AMB Chris Stevens to travel to Benghazi, Libya for the express purpose of meeting with individuals who Barack Obama directly negotiated with in an effort to recover US Supplied weapons.

2. AMB Chris Stevens was not ambushed because of a leak in the Libyan security as is being claimed. Chris Stevens where-a-bouts in Benghazi were determined and relayed by the Obama White House in their arranging this meeting in the first place.

3. Hillary Clinton knows that AMB Stevens was sent to Benghazi on the express direction of Barack Obama and she knew the anti-Islam YouTube video had already been picked to be used as a diversion if the weapons recovery failed.

4. With our deepest sympathy and respect to the families of Chris Stevens; Sean Smith; and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods we ask if they are entitled to the truth and if AMB Stevens father might have a different position if Hillary Clinton were to tell him the truth about how & why his son was sent to meet with the very individuals who killed him?

His family doesn’t want the ambassador’s  memory to become political football

5. The fact that AMB Stevens was sent to meet with the very people he had warned the Obama administration had him on a hit list is inexcusable and the truth must be told.
The continued back and forth as to when one side called it a terrorists attack or blamed some YouTube video (which now thanks to Obama has millions of views) is not going to address the truth of what really happened. Yes it was Islamic terrorists who killed these four Americans, but it was President Barack Obama who arranged to have these four Americans delivered to their very killers. That’s the horrific truth that no one seems to want to acknowledge!

 

Editors Note: Sinclair News has agreed to withhold the names of sources within the US State Dept and the Obama White House who provided us information concerning the Benghazi murders and the Obama arranged weapons recovery meeting which sent these four Americans to be executed.

Setback for secret Big Brother database

Court orders release in program that excludes typical privacy safeguards

Privacy


The federal government has been told by a judge to start producing copies of documents in an open government case brought by the Electronic Privacy Information Center over a nationwide plan to integrate within the government a comprehensive database about Americans.

The organization confirmed in a statement today that the order involves its case against the Office of Director of National Intelligence, in which EPIC wants information about Washington’s strategy to integrate databases inside the government “without the legal safeguards typically in place for personal data.”

The court ordered the agency to disclose the procedures it has establish to safeguard privacy rights, EPIC said.

The lawsuit wants information from the office, an executive branch operation under the control of the Obama White House, about its plan to collect database information about Americans from the CIA, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

EPIC, which for nearly 20 years has focused its attention on the civil liberties, privacy, First Amendment and constitutional issues related to electronic data, said under Washington’s revised guidelines, “The ODNI plans to obtain and integrate databases containing detailed personal information from across the federal government.

“The data will be kept for up to five years without the legal safeguards typically in place for personal data held by government agencies,” the organization explained.

The complaint was filed under the Freedom of Information Act after the Obama administration didn’t respond to questions from the group about how it plans to collect personal data “from across the federal government” and how the privacy of Americans will be protected.

The complaint explains that the New York Times documented earlier this year that Attorney General Eric Holder set up guidelines for the National Counterterrorism Center, a division of ODNI, regarding privacy.

The changes, the complaint explained, “would relax restrictions on how ODNI analysts may retrieve, store, and search information about Americans.”

“The revised NCTC guidelines allow the NCTC to copy entire datasets in other federal agencies and to analyze the aggregate data,” the complaint, dated Aug. 1, says.

While the federal ageny not only would be allowed to collect and analyze the data, it also would be allowed to “supplement incomplete information to the extent additional information becomes available.”

“Under the NCTC guidelines, the NCTC may permanently retain, use, or disseminate data if it is ‘reasonably believed to constitute terrorism information,’ defined to mean if, ‘based on the knowledge and experience of counterterrorism analysts as well as the factual and practical considerations of everyday life on which reasonable and prudent persons act, there are facts giving rise to a reasonable, articulable suspicion that the information is terrorism information.”

The ODNI is part of an intelligence coalition that includes Air Force Intelligence, Army Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, Coast Guard Intelligence, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Department of the Treasury, Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Marine Corps Intelligence, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, National Security Agency and Navy Intelligence.

The privacy center wants records regarding the way the Obama administration will correct inaccurate or unreliable information, how workers are trained to handle the private information, whether there has been any abuse of the system, and what safeguards and oversight mechanisms are in place.

While the data requests have been acknowledged, no information has been forthcoming, meaning that the administration office “has failed to comply with statutory deadlines and failed to make responsive records available to EPIC.”

Additionally, there’s been no explanation on what data the CIA, which is supposed to be operating only on foreign soil, has on American citizens.

Alarmingly, there have been multiple reports that top key intelligence officials in the Department of Homeland Security and elsewhere believe supporters of third-party presidential candidates, advocates of the Constitution and pro-lifers may be terrorists.

A DHS-funded study  by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, or START, “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008,” noted that nearly one-third of all terrorist attacks from 1970 to 2008 occurred in five metropolitan counties run by Democrats.
The counties were Manhattan, Los Angeles, Miami-Dade, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The report went on to list groups by ideology, such as right-wing, left-wing, religious and single-issue.

Interestingly, key data regarding Islamic terrorism is missing from the report.

On Page 22, Table 4 lists “hot spots” for religious terrorism by decade. For the 1990s, it shows there was no religious terrorism in New York or Los Angeles and only two terrorist attacks during the 2000s.

Patrick Poole, writing in PJ Media, noted that the report apparently does not consider the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to be terrorism. Also omitted was a 1994 shooting by Rashid Baz, who killed 16-year-old Jewish student Ari Halberstam and attempted to murder dozens more in a van on the Brooklyn Bridge.

The report also ignores the 2002 shooting at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport.

Following the attack, which killed two and wounded four others, the FBI and Justice Department concluded that the shooter, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, was an Egyptian terrorist who wanted to be a Muslim martyr.

Also, by cutting the report off at 2007, it was able to omit events such as the Fort Hood massacre by Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people and wounded 29 others, and the attack at the Little Rock Army recruiting center in which a Muslim convert shot soldiers in front of a recruiting office.

Examples of what START considered to be “right wing” include “groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national ‘way of life’ is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent.” The report also goes on to describe right-wing terrorists as those who are reverent of individual liberty and suspicious of centralized federal authority.

Under such a definition, the Founding Fathers might have been considered right-wing terrorists.

WND has reported the DHS issued another report listing returning veterans and Christians who believed in end-time prophecies as potentially dangerous right-wing extremists.

A report issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center warned law enforcement agencies to watch for individuals with bumper stickers for third-party political candidates such as Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin. It also identified opponents of illegal immigration, abortion and federal taxes as possibly harboring radical ideologies.

EPIC also said the government, in another case, has been told to start releasing information about its plans to monitor the Internet in a strategy some believe may “run afoul of privacy laws forbidding government surveillance of private Internet traffic.”

Way to go KAREN...


Karen Harrington Supports Commuting the Life Sentence of Israeli Spy Jonathan Pollard


Davie, Florida- Republican congressional candidate Karen Harrington traveled to Butner, North Carolina, to meet with a group of Rabbi's and other Jewish-American leaders, who had organized a trip to the Federal prison where the American-Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard is serving a life sentence for espionage.

Harrington wanted to personally meet with Pollard to hear why he feels his sentence should be commuted. Harrington's scheduled meeting with Pollard lasted 2 hours.

Pollard told Harrington that he was disappointed that the U.S. had not honored the Israeli request to commute his sentence. Israel is a strong ally of the United States and has requested that the U.S. commute Pollard’s sentence and allow him to live in Israel for the remainder of his life.

Pollard spoke to Harrington about the plea agreement that was in place that had him only serving approximately 10 years in prison, but that a judge negated the agreement and instead gave him a life sentence. The two discussed his physical condition, in which Pollard said that the medical care in the prison was sub-par, and that prison officials did not respect medical complaints, and discounted these requests as efforts by the inmates to try to get out of incarceration.

In discussing Karen Harrington's congressional race, Mr. Pollard came across well versed with her race, and said that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was "godless and a disgrace to the Jewish race."

“While I do not condone the criminal acts that Mr. Pollard committed, I feel that our government must take another look at Mr. Pollard's case, and consider commuting the remaining three years of his 30 year sentence.”-Karen Harrington

Karen Harrington joins Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Henry Kissinger and other ranking Israeli and American officials in asking that Jonathan Pollard's sentence be commuted.

WND EXCLUSIVE

Obama's green energy handouts costing billions

'Extent of its failure has been largely ignored by the press'

GreenEnergy
Remember Solyndra? That’s where taxpayers lost hundreds of millions of dollars after the Obama administration handed out money and the company took it and went out of business.

But how about Evergreen Solar? Or Beacon Power? Or EnerDel subsidiary Ener1?

They also took taxpayer money from the Obama administration for their “green” energy projects, and then filed for bankruptcy.

In fact, a new report from the Heritage Foundation says, “So far, 36 companies that have received federal support from taxpayers have either gone bankrupt or are laying off workers and are heading for bankruptcy.”

“It is no secret that President Obama’s and green-energy supporters’ (from both parties) foray into venture capitalism has not gone well. But the extent of its failure has been largely ignored by the press. Sure, single instances garner attention as they happen, but they ignore past failures in order to make it seem like a rare case,” the report said.

“The truth is that the problem is widespread. The government’s picking winners and losers in the energy market has cost taxpayers billions of dollars, and the rate of failure, cronyism, and corruption at the companies receiving the subsidies is substantial. The fact that some companies are not under financial duress does not make the policy a success. It simply means that our taxpayer dollars subsidized companies that would’ve found the financial support in the private market,” the report said.

The report, by Ashe Schow, said, “The problem begins with the issue of government picking winners and losers in the first place. Venture capitalist firms exist for this very reason, and they choose what to invest in by looking at companies’ business models and deciding if they are worthy. When the government plays venture capitalist, it tends to reward companies that are connected to the policymakers themselves or because it sounds nice to ‘invest’ in green energy.”

The report noted the $80 billion set aside in the 2009 stimulus to fund politically preferred energy projects, and documented “at least 10 percent has gone to companies that have since either gone bankrupt or are circling the drain.”

Among those commenting on the report were several who objected to Obama’s actions.

“This guy has broken the sound barrier wasting taxpayers’ money,” said “belleboy.”

And Falcon said, “He’s demonstrated he has no clue how economics work.”

The companies cited were: (Money listed is how much was offered, and does not include other state, local or federal tax credits and subsidies. Asterisk notes that the company has filed for bankruptcy)
  1. Evergreen Solar ($24 million)*
  2. SpectraWatt ($500,000)*
  3. Solyndra ($535 million)*
  4. Beacon Power ($69 million)*
  5. AES’s subsidiary Eastern Energy ($17.1 million)
  6. Nevada Geothermal ($98.5 million)
  7. SunPower ($1.5 billion)
  8. First Solar ($1.46 billion)
  9. Babcock and Brown ($178 million)
  10. EnerDel’s subsidiary Ener1 ($118.5 million)*
  11. Amonix ($5.9 million)
  12. National Renewable Energy Lab ($200 million)
  13. Fisker Automotive ($528 million)
  14. Abound Solar ($374 million)*
  15. A123 Systems ($279 million)*
  16. Willard and Kelsey Solar Group ($6 million)
  17. Johnson Controls ($299 million)
  18. Schneider Electric ($86 million)
  19. Brightsource ($1.6 billion)
  20. ECOtality ($126.2 million)
  21. Raser Technologies ($33 million)*
  22. Energy Conversion Devices ($13.3 million)*
  23. Mountain Plaza, Inc. ($2 million)*
  24. Olsen’s Crop Service and Olsen’s Mills Acquisition Company ($10 million)*
  25. Range Fuels ($80 million)*
  26. Thompson River Power ($6.4 million)*
  27. Stirling Energy Systems ($7 million)*
  28. LSP Energy ($2.1 billion)*
  29. UniSolar ($100 million)*
  30. Azure Dynamics ($120 million)*
  31. GreenVolts ($500,000)
  32. Vestas ($50 million)
  33. LG Chem’s subsidiary Compact Power ($150 million)
  34. Nordic Windpower ($16 million)*
  35. Navistar ($10 million)
  36. Satcon ($3 million)*
The total? More than $10 billion.

Previously, it was reported A123, the maker of electric car batteries, sought bankruptcy to allow “the company to provide for an orderly sale of the automotive business assets and and all other assets and business units,” the company said.

About the same time, the Washington Times found a series of emails from solar power giant BrightSource Energy Inc. showing how the company “applied political pressure and used behind-the-scenes cajoling to win a $1.6 billion loan guarantee.”

And the IRS has argued regarding Solyndra that the bankruptcy plan “amounts to little more than an avenue for owners of an empty corporate shell to avoid paying taxes.”

“The undeniable conclusion is that tax benefits drive this plan,” attorneys for the IRS told the bankruptcy court.

 

Revenue Facts Blow Up the Obama-Biden Tax Cut Lie

By: Bob Beauprez  / Townhall Finance

Whenever Republicans – or anyone else – propose a tax cut, Democrats run to the nearest microphone in horror crying about all the revenue it will "cost" the federal government.  Panicked Pols will foretell of massive firings of teachers and policeman, children will starve because school lunches will disappear, and condoms and birth control pills will vanish from Planned Parenthood stock rooms.

Such is the case in these waning days of the 2012 presidential campaign as Barack Obama and Joe Biden rail against the Romney-Ryan plan to lower the tax burden on Americans.  It's not just that Mitt and Paul believe everybody in America could use some relief.  They also know that history has proven time and again that lower tax rates are a proven stimulus for increased economic activity which produces more, not less, revenue for the US Treasury as the following chart demonstrates.

Not only do Obama and Biden deny historical fact with their opposition to Romney's plan, they pretend that restoration of economic vitality is somehow just one more big tax increase away.  Their plan – already rejected by even by many Democrats in Congress, by the way – would raise taxes for the handful of folks at the top of the income ladder; many of which are small business owners.

In a front page feature for Investor's Business Daily for Tuesday, October 18, 2012 Paul Sperry does a terrific job of explaining the historical financial realities that happened with when tax rates were both increased and decreased across time by Democrats and Republicans from the Kennedy Administration through George W. Bush. 

Obama and Biden would do well to study and understand this indisputable piece of American history.  But, then their objective isn't really to fix our economy; it's all playing class warfare in the hope of eeking out re-election.

In his opening few paragraphs Sperry writes:

President Obama warned that GOP hopeful Mitt Romney's proposed income-tax cuts will "cost" the government revenue and repeat Bush policies that he says blew up the deficit.

"The centerpiece of his economic plan are tax cuts," Obama said at Tuesday's presidential debate in New York. "That's what took us from surplus to deficit."

He called Romney's tax plan "sketchy," because it promises to raise revenues while slashing personal tax rates from top to bottom. His debate sparring partner, Democratic Sen. John Kerry, went further, calling it a "fraud."

The Obama camp has strenuously opposed Romney's pro-growth strategy, arguing that tax breaks, especially for the wealthy, "rob" programs for the middle class and poor because they don't raise revenues and don't "pay for themselves."

"It has never been done before," Vice President Joe Biden insisted in last week's debate with Romney running-mate Paul Ryan.

"It's been done a couple of times, actually," Ryan shot back.

The data bear out Ryan. In fact, the White House's own numbers put a big wrinkle in its argument.

The historical tables in the back of the latest "Economic Report of the President" show that the Bush tax cuts generated more, not less, federal revenues — a phenomenon that also held true for Presidents Clinton, Reagan and Kennedy

Here's How Romney Wins The Monday Night Debate 

By: Mark Davis  / Townhall Daily

Here's How Romney Wins The Monday Night Debate
I confess a certain fascination with debate prep. What is it, exactly?

What did Mitt Romney do that earned him such a commanding win in his first debate with President Obama? What did the President not do?

In the second debate, was President Obama better prepared, or just more energetic and focused? Could Mitt Romney have prevented an underwhelming moment on Libya with a few more drills alongside Rob Portman?

I raise these questions because as the final debate draws near, I wonder how Governor Romney’s time is best spent. Is it a matter of homework alone, or something deeper?

National Review’s Robert Costa has done some compelling reporting on Team Romney’s behind-the-scenes discipline, which obviously paid off in Denver. Sen. Portman is generous in his praise of a candidate who showed a tireless devotion to the task of absorbing data and engaging in mock debates.

But with just one opportunity left to make a case before tens of millions of people at once, the Romney campaign should consider a strong possibility: the homework is not what won it for him in Denver, and was not responsible for his best moments in the second debate Tuesday.

Absorbing numbers is a good thing. So is studying the style of an opponent. But Mitt Romney’s chances of winning over undecided voters Monday night does not hinge on encyclopedic knowledge or hours spent studying past Obama debates.

He will succeed with the same formula that brought him success in the first debate. To large numbers of uncommitted voters, he looked like a man who should be President of the United States.

A broad, nebulous concept, to be sure, but a vital factor in any successful run for the White House. Without regard to any particular quote or any particular moment, Romney exuded a vibe of confidence and competence that earned the approval of voters unsure of him mere hours before.

I had the chance to visit with Rick Santorum during a Texas visit this week. Recalling the debate that even MSNBC had to admit was a Romney win, he told attendees at a fundraiser: “I debated Mitt Romney twenty times. I never saw that guy.”

Santorum saw what many Republicans (and potential Republicans) saw-- a nominee who may have picked just the right time to become comfortable in conservative skin. This has led to the erosion of some doubts that have dogged his campaign, even as it steamrolled to the nomination.

The GOP base knows about his business acumen, his strong faith and his beautiful family. What we have wondered about is his passion for conservatism. Is it a recently discovered enthusiasm born of political expediency, or a genuine journey leading to the kind of enlightenment that yields a far better candidate and perhaps a great President?

So on Monday night, debate success will not stem from some skillfully-placed factoid about Syria or even a pithy retort the tenth time the President reminds us he got bin Laden.

Romney needs to address foreign policy the way he mastered domestic issues on October 3-- with the determination to take an unacceptable situation and make it better.

It is unacceptable that Iran marches toward a nuclear weapon without a steadfast American response.

It is unacceptable that America has forfeited a leadership role around the world, leaving power vacuums to be filled by terrorists and tyrants.

It is unacceptable that we seem more interested in coddling the Muslim world than in confronting the portion of it that still threatens us.

It is unacceptable that we have neglected our alliance with Israel.

And to make it as fresh as today’s headlines, it is completely unacceptable to hear of embassy personnel security requests going ignored, and for the resulting deaths to be dishonored by a politically-driven campaign of deceptions.

Only the most entrenched Democrat partisans can assert that this presidency has been a foreign policy success. With moderator Bob Schieffer unlikely to run interference as Candy Crowley did, President Obama will be left to defend the decline of America on a world stage still swirling with dangers.

In shattering the falsehoods leveled at him by Obama attack ads, Mitt Romney has offered himself up to independents and undecideds as a thoroughly palatable alternative to the President on domestic issues.

Similar success on foreign policy matters could seal the deal, establishing a momentum storyline that could spur the polls-- and thus the election-- to break his way.
Op-ed:
Our economy...stagnant and stalled
By: Diane Sori
 

Announced yesterday, the new weekly applications for unemployment benefits (what’s commonly referred to as the weekly jobs numbers), came in at a four month high of 388,000...UP 46,000 from 342,000 at the time the last numbers were announced.  

So much for Obama’s phony manipulated numbers from the previous week's supposed sharp decline.

With California finally reporting its major increase in applications, saying it now was able to process those delayed from the previous week (I mean how ‘suddenly’ convenient is that those delayed applications were the very thing that altered the numbers last week to appear lower than they actually were), and that those new applications have now negated the previous numbers and the true numbers are finally being reported.

California...La-Laland...home of the ubber-left was oh so conveniently behind Obama getting to say that the jobless rate fell to 7.8% on his watch, dipping below 8% for the first time in 43 months.

Gives new meaning to the words ‘manipulation’ and ‘fix’ doesn’t it as all of a sudden California didn't have time to process all the applications when they previously had NO trouble at all...give me a break.

With applications being the tell-tale sign of the number of layoffs, meaning when they decline hiring is improving, Obama tried to use these ‘fixed’ numbers for his political gain.  Thankfully enough experts were on to this and yelled loud enough for California to take notice that they were NOT going to get away with this...hence, the 'suddenly true count' of applications comes forward.

No matter what Obama and his minions try to pull the simple fact is that economic growth, which encompasses the number of jobs created, slowed to an annual rate of 1.3% in the April-June quarter, down from 2 percent in the previous quarter.  And with most leading economists continuing to say that economic growth will stay at or below 2 percent in the second half of the year the bottom line is that the economy is NOT growing fast enough to generate much needed hiring or even, as Mitt Romney said during the debates, ‘to keep up with the population growth.’  

Mitt Romney is 100% correct in that as simple mathematics proves that hiring must be stronger to bring relief to the more than 12 million Americans who are currently out of work.  Roughly 100,000+ new jobs need to be created each and every month just to keep up with the working-age population...just to keep up with NOT even increase to bring jobs to those who have already been looking for work...some even for years.

"Improvement in the labor market will continue to be fitful and slow," said Joseph Trevisani, a market strategist at Worldwide Markets in Woodcliff Lake, N.J.

‘Fitful and slow’...how about stagnant and stalled.

The American people are hurting and hurting bad.  While Obama jets off on one of his many vacations, golf forays, and hob-nobbing ego boosting excursions with his libertard Hollywood hanger-ons, the American people are out of work, losing their homes, paying ridiculous inflated prices for gas at the pumps, can’t get decent medical insurance, our public schools are a mess, food prices are rising, and the economy just plain sucks...but hey, what do I know as Obama keeps bloviating that things are turning around and that he just needs more time to complete what he’s started.

Well I say...when hell freezes over!

Barack HUSSEIN Obama has done more than enough damage to our economy, more than any modern day president before him, including delusional Jimmy Carter, and its way passed time for him to go.

18 days and counting...November 6th just can’t come fast enough for me.
