Facebook, A Tool Of The Liberal Media?
Has facebook joined CNN and the rest of the liberal media in manipulating the truth? Breitbart.com published an article that calls into question the motivations of facebook.
“Facebook Manager Andrew Noyes emailed the following to Breitbart News this morning: We wanted to follow up on the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) article published on Breitbart.com last night. I assure you that removing the image was not an act of censorship on our part. This was an error and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.
The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.”

This statement made by Barack Obama is one of the best pieces of evidence that our president has no clue how our economy works. This man’s incompetence is indisputable.
From his speech on Friday, July 13th, 2012
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.
Contrary to what Obama feels, the government was built by the people. The sad facts is that the people are being destroyed by government.

Do we really know what the unemployment rate is? Week after week the estimate made by the White House is getting revised upwards. The unemployment rate is worse then they say it is. The Obama administration is not telling us the truth.
They Don’t Know What An “Estimate” Is
When a true estimate is made on anything, the final results will are as likely to show the revision go up as they are likely to show the revision go down. With revisions made to Obama’s estimates, the revisions have shown a worse rate than the one estimated by the administration in 60 of the last 61 weeks. This is statistically impossible. Obama and his administration is lying to us every day.

The American public has started the shouting from their windows, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it any more!” (The movie “Nework” – 1976). And the loudest call yet has come from Wisconsin. In that state Scott Walker became the first to governor in US history to survive a recall election. The conservative won by a greater margin then he enjoyed in the initial election in 2010. By then, Americans were aware that they had made a big mistake by embracing “hope and change” policies. With support of the press and weeks of massive protests at the Statehouse, the liberals still suffered an historic defeat.
Mitt Romney was quoted as saying “Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington”. The key question here is: Will Romney remember this after he is elected?
The conservatives have spoken and shown their strength in Wisconsin. They have spoken out against unions. They have spoken out against excess government spending. They have spoken out for conservative fiscal policies. They have spoken out for America!
Next stop…. Obama!

A Lot Of Talk, Nothing To Show
Obama’s State of the Union Address January 25, 2012:
“During the Great Depression, America built the Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge. After World War II, we connected our States with a system of highways. Democratic and Republican administrations invested in great projects that benefited everybody, from the workers who built them to the businesses that still use them today.”
- Has Obama ever proposed a comparable project?
“Let’s remember how we got here. Long before the recession, jobs and manufacturing began leaving our shores….we should support everyone who’s willing to work; and every risk-taker and entrepreneur who aspires to become the next Steve Jobs.”
- Is Obama not aware that Steve Jobs’ Apple Computer does it manufacturing in China?
This it solid proof that this man is totally out of touch with reality.

Obama’s lack of understanding is beginning to stand out on the world stage. And Timonthy Geithner, the US Secretary of Treasury, is showing his lack of understanding and his lack of independence from the Oval Office.
In a recent decision, the federal reserve has decided to buy $75 billion worth of bonds through mid-2011.
No Understanding of World Economics
Obama’s lack of understanding world economics has made itself obvious in a statement made in Seoul, Korea at the G-20 meeting.
From everything I can see, this decision was not one designed to have an impact on the currency, on the dollar…It was designed to grow the economy.
A basic economics course in international economics at nearly any college or university in the US will teach you that a decision, such as the one to increase the money supply by $75 billion, will make a major impact across the world economy.

The president took an oath to protect and defend The Constitution of The United States of America.
Is he doing it?

Change For The Worse
The Obama administration has failed to bring hope and change for almost two years. In the fourth quarter of 2007 Obama was beginning to make his presence known. Talk of higher taxes and more regulations caused investors, home buyers and others to step back and take note.
A few months later a builder in Pinehurst had his $1 million spec home nearly complete and a couple very interested in it. They were taking their time making the important decision. After seeing Obama’s promises of higher taxes the couple elected to wait things out. “We think we’ll wait until we see what happens in this election before we make our decision.” After Obama was elected the builder had no prospects. “Things just dried up.”
GDP Below 2007 Levels
Our economy has still not recovered to the 2007 levels. GDP today is still below what it was in the fourth quarter of 2007 (-WSJ).
Of course the Obama administration puts the blame back on Bush. And they will continue to do so as long as the news is bad. But when you compare our economy with that of other developed countries some signs of responsibility begin to present themselves. Today there are 4.6% fewer people employed in the US then there were at the beginning of the recession. G-7 nations have lost 2.4% of their jobs. The OEDC lost 1.9%. Euro zone countries have only lost 1.7%. The UK is down only 0.6%. It’s hard to argue that the Obama administration is performing it’s economic duties well when compared to other developed nations.
Change On The Way?
We are approaching the 2010 elections and it appears that Obama is about to lose power. As things look promising for a head locked federal government for the 2011-2012 congressional term, confidence in our economy begins to grow. But there is still some caution.
Our economy thrives when risk takers take risks. New ideas create better products, more goods and more services. But risk takers will not take risks unless there is the chance for a reward. If the democrat party fails to retain either of both houses then risk takers will at least have a little assurance that things will not get worse concerning their tax burden. Let’s just hope their is enough encouragement to get the $2 trillion waiting in liquid assets back working again.

“Hope and Change” was Obama’s campaign slogan in the 2008 campaign. My question was this: “What did we want to change?” The only things I could get out of his messages was that he was going to take things away from people. Certain people were making too much money. He wanted to restrict and tax these people. And with that message he implied that those lower on the totem pole were somehow going to benefit.
Well, where are they now with the real unemployment rate above 16% (MSN Reports). Estimates range as high as 28% (Daily Finance Poll). During the Great Depression the unemployment rate reached 24.9% (Answers.com). Will we look back on this period as a depression?
The Truth Is Coming Out
The public is finally catching on to who Barack Obama really is. A man with no experience running anything. It was unrealistic to believe that he could run the most powerful nation in the world.
Mr. Obama could protest that his swift and sudden fall from grace is no fault of his. He had been a blank slate, and the devotees had projected onto him their hopes and dreams. His victory had not been the triumph of policies he had enunciated in great detail. He had never run anything in his entire life. He had a scant public record, but oddly this worked to his advantage. – Fouad Ajami – Wall Street Journal – 9-11-2010
Obama is running out of time to pass on the blame. And the public is finally realizing that they are the only ones to blame for putting this man in office. Mr. Ahami concludes his WSJ article very appropriately:
There is a widespread sense of unstated embarrassment that a political majority, if only for a moment, fell for the promise of an untested redeemer—a belief alien to the temperament of this so practical and sober a nation. – WSJ
