I was thinking this morning…what if this term beginning 2012 Mitt Romney, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz,  Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Rick Perry or Mike Lee  were Presidential or Vice Presidential leaders of the United States…would our country be suffering from the following actions created by this Administration?

  • Do you think that the Keystone XL Pipeline would have been approved by now?
  • Do you think that our economy would be in any better shape?
  • Do you think we would be printing money at the same rate?
  • Do you think that our nation’s unemployed would be decreasing dramatically?
  • Do you think that our relations with China would be any different?
  • Do you think our international relations in the Mid East and around the world would be any different?
  • Do you think we would still be leading from behind?
  • Do you think that our military power would be on the decrease or the increase?
  • Do you think we would have had Benghazi and four dead Americans?
  • Do you think we would have had the NSA overreach into the AP scandals?
  • Do you think the Snowden whistleblower would have ended up in Russia?
  • Do you think the IRS would have tried to stop the Tea Party underhandedly?
  • Do you think the  Veteran Administration would have allowed non-payment of veterans for their medical bills?
  •  Do you think Fast and Furious would have been sanctioned and approved by the attorney general?
  • Do you think we would have pulled out of Iraq totally and lost all of our investments there?
  • How loud do you think the liberal media would be screaming about all these things if the Conservatives of the United States had committed all of the acts above? How upset and loud would they be?
  • Do you think that Putin would be acclaimed today as the world’s peacemaker?

And the list goes on and on…my point to all of this is that President Obama continues to make a political game out of the Presidency and disregard the strong majority public opinions of this country by this delay…

Keystone XL Pipeline Another Political Decision For The President

I ask anyone who is concerned about any and all of these actions to call or write their President, Congressmen and Senators today…

U.S. decision on Keystone XL pipeline likely to slip into 2014

By Timothy Gardner

WASHINGTON | Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:05pm EDT

(Reuters) – As the State Department drags out the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, it is more likely President Barack Obama’s final decision on the project to help link Canada’s oil sands to U.S. refineries will slip into 2014, experts said.

The department has yet to finalize a controversial environmental review of more than 2,000 pages it issued on March 1 that it had been expected to complete by mid-summer. Instead, the department is reviewing and publishing in batches the more than 1.5 million public comments it received on the review. The first batch of comments was posted on May 23; the most recent batch went up about a week ago.

Guess How Much Michelle Obama’s Staff Costs Taxpayers? Try $1.4M Per Year

SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 10:52 AM0 COMMENTS

First lady Michelle Obama is under fire all the time for spending our tax dollars frivolously while on her vacations in Ireland, Hawaii, Martha’s Vineyard and other exotic locations. She spent $3,000 per night on a hotel room so she couldhave lunch with U2’s lead singer Bono and the Obama’s Hawaii vacation cost some $7 millionwhile they paid a small fraction of that to rent a 5,000 square foot home. And since the Obama trip to Africa was official business, it is likely the Obama’s paid nothing for their own accommodations on that trip.

But now reports are coming out that her entire office entourage costs taxpayers around $1.4 million per year. That is nearly three times the cost of Laura Bush’s staff, which was slightly over $500,000 per year. With the President constantly traveling around the country telling us that the rich don’t pay their fare share, why in the world does the First Lady need to have a $1.4 million staff?

Do you think Michelle Obama gives our country $1.4 million worth of value every year? Do you think there is something better that $1.4 million could be spent on every year instead of an outrageously expensive staff? Tell us what you think in the comments, below.

Closing White House Tours Backfires on Obama

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

Click Here To See Beginning of Transcript

………………………..

KARL:  The White House says it is canceling the tours because sequester spending cuts have sliced $84 million out of the Secret Service’s $1.6 billion budget. And they are the ones who secure the tours. They wouldn’t say how much this saves, so we did some math. Tours are open 20 hours a week and use 30 uniformed Secret Service officers at about $30 an hour. Total saved? Approximately $18,000 a week. RUSH:  Now, what does it cost for 20 cars to transport Obama a half a mile?  By the time you add up all the man-hours, the fuel costs, everything else involved to take Obama a half mile to have dinner with the Republican old guard… See, the shutdown of the White House tours is purposeful.  They wanted people to be disappointed.  They wanted kids and everybody to be sad. These people planned for this years in advance, certainly by a minimum of a month that you have plan one of these things, and they wanted people disappointed.  They wanted people sad and let down, and they wanted people blaming the Republicans for it.  And it’s backfiring, not working.

Mr. Obama: Fix Our Country!!!

Keystone Pipelin
Open The Energy Floodgates To Allow Jobs!

Tear down this wall!” was the challenge issued by United States President Ronald Reagan to Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev to destroy the Berlin Wall, in a speech at the Brandenburg Gate near the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987.

As I awake each morning and listen to the results of our President’s actions in his efforts to keep his pledge… “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” I am horrified as to the degree of success with which he has achieved his goal. And I am not alone. More than 55+% of Americans are beginning to feel the same way.

We now have so many crises on so many fronts that our country is no longer the strong, proud, respected country that it was.  I wish I had the clout and respect as Mr. Reagan, however as a once proud Citizen and Patriot of this country, I challenge you…on behalf of all of the American People…

Mr. Obama: Fix Our Country!!!

We have far too many crises that are going on now that are working to destroy this country, and the country needs you Mr. President to take charge and lead actions that will restore our county…not destroy it.  These are not politically motivated requests. These are requests that are based upon facts and circumstances that are very destructive to American citizens and to our country as a whole. It is not in our best interests to maintain these destructive policies. You have tried your experiments to let the government fund the economy…it doesn’t work…never has and never will. This country thrives on capitalism which is based on a free economy and competition. Have you realized this yet Mr. President?

We have a long list of crises to address Mr. President. Today I will respectfully request of the President of the United States that you truly read and understand this data and requests and take action to change these policies immediately. Our population is some 316,000,000 with a net addition of one person every 12 seconds. What are these people doing Mr. President as a result of your policies?  The majority of the jobs that have been created while you have been in office are part-time less than 30 hour per week jobs and we are just now getting back to 2010 employed people levels…and you will see below that unemployment and underemployment is at record highs. Let’s stop the political games and campaigning Mr. President…and begin to solve the issues of this country.

This is the first of several requests that I will make to ask for changes to our country!

ZERO HEDGE

More Than 101 Million Working Age Americans Do Not Have A Job

Tyler Durden's picture   Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/08/2013
Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog,

The jobs recovery is a complete and total myth.  The percentage of the working age population in the United States that had a job in March 2013 was exactly the same as it was all the way back in March 2010.  In addition, as you will see below, there are now more than 101 million working age Americans that do not have a job.  But even though the employment level in the United States has consistently remained very low over the past three years, the Obama administration keeps telling us that unemployment is actually going down.

In fact, they tell us that the unemployment rate has declined from a peak of 10.0% all the way down to 7.6%.  And they tell us that in March the unemployment rate fell by 0.1% even though only 88,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy.  But it takes at least 125,000 new jobs a month just to keep up with population growth.  So how in the world are they coming up with these numbers?  Well, the reality is that the entire decline in the unemployment rate over the past three years can be accounted for by the reduction in size of the labor force.

HOROWITZ: Obama still wants to fundamentally transform America

Too radical for four more years

By David Horowitz                     September 27, 2012

An American compound in Libya is invaded by al Qaeda terrorists and an American ambassador is purportedly tortured before being killed. Muslim mobs attack American embassies in 27 countries chanting,”Death to America.” The White House response? A statement blaming the outrages on a filmmaker in the United States, along with apologies to the Muslim world.

The American economy languishes with millions unemployed in the worst times since the Great Depression. Yet the president spends his first years in the White House focusing on a plan to create a trillion-dollar socialized health care system opposed by a majority of Americans. Then he campaigns for re-election on a platform blaming rich Americans for the economic woes.

What’s going on here?

The real jobs numbers: 41% of America unemployed, 1 in 3 doesn’t want work at all

Published time: October 18, 2012 20:43
Edited time: October 19, 2012 16:45LEven if the US Labor Department has determined that the unemployment level has finally plateaued after months of staggering jobs statistics, the truth behind the numbers isn’t all that nice. Only four out of every 10 adults in the US is employed.While the percentage of Americans filing jobless benefit claims isn’t what it was during an unemployment epidemic that ravaged the country throughout the majority of US President Barack Obama’s administration, the Labor Department’s numbers are largely inflated on account of how they determine what actually constitutes looking for work.

Cruz: The President Is Not Above The Law

Cruz
President should not be above the law
larsenfinancial.us

The President’s leadership decisions and style are causing millions of Americans to be more deeply concerned every day.  The results of his unpopular decisions and actions are reverberating throughout America at an alarming exponential rate. As one of Mr. Obama’s favorite Christian leaders… Jeremiah Wright once said… “America’s Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost”.

Cruz: The President Is Not Above The Law

And in the past we relied upon the mainstream news media to keep us informed. No longer can we look to the once popular news outlets to report the truth in a timely fashion. They are much more concerned about protecting Mr. Obama’s reputation and the left-wing socialist progressive agenda. The “good news” is that the alternative media made up of radio talk shows, fair and balanced tv new outlets, blogs, websites and thousands of responsible internet media outlets are bringing truth very quickly to the American People! It is amazing the number of sites on the internet that are providing non-biased, accurate news in a professional and timely fashion.

Most every day brings us news of more unconstitutional activities that are detrimental to America and it’s society including…

  • Presidential overreach
  • Selecting which laws he chooses to support
  • The results of his decisions in military matters
  • Ineffective and risky foreign policies for political purposes
  • Failure to be open and transparent on key issues
  • Fast and Furious Deaths and gun running
  • Benghazi Deaths and lack of actions to send attack forces
  • The IRS political vendettas
  • NSA unconstitutional mass data collection
  • The AP illiegal assaults on the news media
  • Choosing to solve the wrong problems so as to gain political favor with targeted voters
  • Failure to effectively address our employment issues
  • Failure to develop an effective energy policy including approval of the Keystone Pipeline
  • Destroying key parts of our productive society including coal mining
  • Developing thousands of laws to adversely affect businesses
  • Obamacare to take apart our healthcare system and waste millions of dollars which Americans do not want!
  • Bringing about cancellation of millions of American’s health care insurance policies and vital relationships with their doctors so as to achieve a political goal for his political party and especially himself

And the list goes on! Today the following issues are at the top of my lists….
