America’s abysmal 0.7% economic growth during the fourth quarter of 2015 meant the annual growth rate was an anemic 2.4% … and average annual growth for the six-year Obama era a pathetic 2.2 percent.

This is “dead last compared to six other recession recoveries since 1960,” Heritage Foundation economist Stephen Moore points out. They averaged a robust 4.0% while the Reagan era recovery averaged a “sizzling” 4.8% over six years. That means the Obama recovery lost $1.8 trillion (in constant 2009 money) that would have been pumped into the economy under an average recovery, and$2.8 trillion under a Reagan-style rebound, Moore says, citing a congressional Joint Economic Committee analysis.

But job growth is “strong,” the White House insists, averaging 280,000 each of the last three months of 2015 (and a mere 151,000 last month). This deceptive claim hides the fact that 94 million Americans over age 16 are not working. The horrid 62.6% labor force participation rate remains the worst in decades.

Under an average post-1960 recovery, 5 million more Americans would be working today than actually are; under a Reagan recovery, 12 million more would be working now. Moreover, even an average recovery would have given every American an after-tax annual income $3,339 higher than he or she is actually getting today, the JEC calculates.

Video: John Kerry attacked in Rome; attacker cried “You created ISIS!”
Kerry did aid in creating the vacuum that the Islamic State filled, with the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the American support for the weak Shia government in Baghdad. He also helped arm the Islamic State by sending weapons to “moderates” who either weren’t moderate and gave their weapons to the Islamic […]

Obama: Islamic State says they’re “holy warriors who speak for Islam. I refuse to give them legitimacy.”

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

The Islamic State does not look to mullah Obama for legitimacy. They look to the Quran and hadith, where their actions are commanded and sanctioned.

Obama is sick with grandiosity. Devout Muslims look to Islam for their marching orders, not Obama. Obama may think he is Muhammad 2.0, but he isn’t. Jihadis don’t give a fig about what he says or doesn’t say — but he knows that, he was raised Muslim.

What makes Obama think that the Islamic State is looking to him for legitimacy? Where did he get the idea that any Muslim looks to any non-Muslim to legitimize his understanding of...
     
An Open Letter to Jeb Bush
By: Mona Charen / NATIONAL REVIEW



Dear Governor Bush,
There are many ways to express your love of country. One is to serve as president. In your case, that path seems closed. Since April, you spent the better part of $15 million in Iowa, yet you came sixth, winning just 2.8 percent of the vote and one delegate. At this rate, you’d need to spend $18,540,000,000 to win the nomination — which is more than even Right to Rise can manage.

There is no shame in losing, of course, and it’s always possible that New Hampshire will shock the world by giving you a victory, but let’s face it, the RealClearPolitics average of New Hampshire polls has you at under 10 percent (under 5 percent nationally), and your donors are panicking. After what was supposed to be a reassuring post-Iowa conference call with your campaign, one donor told Politico, “Have you ever heard the phrase ‘rattle of death?’”

Even stipulating that primary polls are notoriously poor, there are other reasons to conclude that this is not your year. It may not have much to do with you personally. There has never been a third president from the same family. Most Americans were fine with two Adamses, Harrisons, Roosevelts, and Bushes. Three is pushing it. I know, I know. You’re your own man. Of course that’s true. Life isn’t fair. But it goes both ways. You would almost certainly never have been governor if your name had been James Ellis instead of John Ellis Bush. You seem to be a fine person and were certainly a superior and very conservative governor of Florida. For good or ill, gratitude for past service is not the mood this year, and, with all due respect, except at the last debate, when, freed from Donald Trump’s bullying, you finally stood up straight, you’ve been an awfully dull candidate. We cannot chalk it up to voter ignorance. Between your campaign and your super PAC, you’ve already spent $89.1 million on positive ads about yourself and negative ads about others.
Op-ed: 
Obama Visits a Mosque...and Jeb Happily Approves 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on http://www.americanpbn.com/

"We have made you people of tribes, so you may know one another." 
- Barack HUSSEIN Obama's words when speaking at the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque

Earlier this week I wrote about Obama's upcoming visit to the above said Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque...a mosque well-known for its affiliation with the Hamas-linked Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). And on Wednesday that visit happened, and true to form Obama delivered a speech that sung the praises of his brethren while at the same time criticizing Republicans for what he says is their hate of muslims. Warning those present and also addressing the American people not to be what he called “bystanders to bigotry” Obama urged all to embrace their "common humanity" and to reject "inexcusable political rhetoric" he claimed is coming from the Republican presidential campaign trail.

And of course Obama told lies...so many lies...lies about how muslims were a crucial and integral part of America's history (they were not); about how muslims are “vital” to our nations future (they are not); and about how "Muslim Americans help keep us safe" (oh really); but if you want to know the truth about what muslims have actually contributed to our nation's history please click on the link below and it will take you to my article 'Obama Visits a Mosque...Now Isn't That Special'... http://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2016/02/op-ed-obama-visits-mosque.html

And the lies continued on...“If we’re serious about freedom of religion, and I’m talking to my fellow Christians who are the majority in this country, we have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths,” Obama said but he's not fooling anyone into believing that he's a Christian or that he cares about anyone except his brethren.

And while Obama was correct when speaking that both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams each had a qur'an, and as he tried to speak of islam as it relates to today's Americans by quoting Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, what Obama failed to say...an important truth that must be told...is that both men had a qur'an not because they praised islam or its self-professed prophet and faux god, but to remind them of and guide them to the dangers islam posed to our new nation. So when Obama said that muslims had been a part of these United States since its founding and when he said that, “Generations of Muslim Americans helped to build our nation” know that muslims did not in any way help build our nation and Obama's words are nothing but his attempt to change our nation's history to fit his islamic leanings.

And what a show...what theater...Obama put on as he placated his brethren and attempted to try and convince Americans that islam is a religion of peace. In fact, before speaking about the tenets of islam, Obama rolled out his always used props...children...and this time it was Cub Scouts who attended the mosque's adjoining school and who carried the American and Maryland state flags into the prayer hall. And a row of muslim American military service members as well as Ibtihaj Muhammad, a member of the U.S. fencing team who will compete in this year's Rio Olympics in a hajib, completed Obama's theater of absurd.

And when all props were in place smiling...smirking...for the camera Obama entered center stage, shoes of course off in strict islamic custom, and said, "Think of your own church or synagogue or temple, and a mosque like this will be very familiar." No I don't think so as churches, synagogues, and temples are not hotbeds of terrorism...are not meeting places for jihadis...and are not laundering monies to the likes of Hamas, al-Qaeda, and ISIS.

After extolling the anything but virtues of islam, Obama spoke of ISIS and what he said was a “perverted version of islam” pushed forward by the right. But as far as I'm concerned, Obama's making excuses for islam was actually his defaming Christianity yet again for he told his audience of what he claimed were “regular Muslims” to "show who you are. To use a little Christian expression - let your light shine." Using a Christian expression in my opinion, and having it being used by a 'for political expedience alone Christian'...a man who ignores the fact the islam was, is, and will always be the antithesis of everything our beloved America stands for...is just as grievous as an American president singing the praises of the very people whose anything but holy book...the qur'an...demands they kill all who do not believe.

All who do not believe but I guess presidential candidate Jeb Bush believes...to some degree any way...as Jeb praised Obama for making the speech, despite his not having seen it and called it “important and appropriate.” Speaking on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, Jeb added that “sometimes, you have to give someone credit for a job well done. I haven’t seen the speech, but it’s important. Look, when you have a candidate for president that says we’re going to ban all Muslims coming into the country, the implications of that are horrific as it relates to our national security. But it also sends a signal to the millions of peaceful Muslims that are as American as you and I.”

Oh really Jeb...temporarily banning muslims...the all-important word 'temporarily' you oh so conveniently left out...the very word that was actually said by the candidate who proposed this...is not horrific to our national security but is essential to our national security, and most of the candidates know it and 'We the People' know it as well...apparently you do not.

“And I think it’s important for people to know that they have worth, that they have value, that we’re all, you know, we’re all American. And we should target our energies to defeat radical Islam and the radicalization of people. We need to be kept safe, but you can do that by being respectful of people of the Muslim faith as well.”
Again, oh really Jeb...your words are not only clueless but are words that cross over into the traitorous for Obama's so-called “regular muslims” do not condemn acts of terrorism and in their silence it speaks of condoning their acts. And Jeb pray tell why should we respect muslims or their anything-but religion when they do not respect America, its culture, or its laws...wanting to replace all three with the abomination known as Sharia law. No Jeb, if a people want respect they have to give respect and muslims, whether Americans or otherwise...respect no one...not even their own kind.

Jeb on Obama's mosque visit in his own words:
http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/04/politics/jeb-bush-mosque-obama-marco-rubio-donald-trump/index.html

So while Jeb jumped on the muslim bandwagon, thankfully two of the other candidates did indeed see the slap in the face to America Obama's visit caused. When Marco Rubio was asked at a recent townhall meeting for his response to Obama's mosque visit, Rubio said it was done just to divide Americans. “I’m tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like this president’s done... Always pitting people against each other. Always.” And Rubio added that, “Look at today...basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims. Of course there’s discrimination in America, of every kind. But the bigger issue is: radical Islam. And by the way, radical Islam poses a threat to Muslims themselves.” And to that I'll add that they don't even know it or if they do know it they just don't care.

And Donald Trump, the very man who Obama alluded to in his mosque speech, said that “maybe [Obama] feels comfortable there,” I'll add he does. And to those who still defend Obama and claim that he's a Christian all I can say is Obama's every action speaks so much louder than any words to the contrary that he's said. So on that Donald Trump has it right...as in born a muslim, raised a muslim, siding with muslims against America every chance he gets does indeed make Barack HUSSEIN Obama a muslim...case closed.

And so ends yet another chapter in Obama's divisive actions against America. Closing his speech and his mosque visit by reminding muslims in Americans that, “You are not alone, your fellow Americans stand with you...we are one American family...we will rise and fall together,” Obama needs to understand and understand well that his brethren are not our brethren...that his brethren are not nor have they ever been part of our American family...and that we will rise and his brethren will fall because America is and will always remain one nation under God never to be one nation under allah...never to be part of the caliphate... period.
