UNREAL … YOUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS HANDED OVER TO SO-CALLED GREEN ENERGY AND NO ACCOUNTABILITY.
The Daily Caller is reporting that the IRS has handed out billions of dollars to support Barack Obama’s green energy projects. You know, those one’s like those unsuccessful and bankrupt companies like Solyndra. And it gets worse, if possible. The IRS is not tracking the money to see how it was being spent. ARE YOU KIDDING, WHEN WILL THIS ALL STOP!!! The IRS, the organization who makes people’s lives miserable for not properly tracking their income, does not have to do the same with tax payer dollars? Talk about the ultimate in hypocrisy. Honestly, the IRS really does need to be abolished and converted into an entity that just counts the tax revenue sent in by Americans from a flat or fair tax and no longer allowed to harass or divvy out monies at the bequest of a president.
A new government watchdog report found that the Internal Revenue service has handed out billions of dollars to support green energy projects, and then failed to mention how the money was spent on building new power generation.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that IRS tax subsidies to green energy operators “accounted for an estimated $13.7 billion in forgone revenue to the federal government for renewable projects and $1.4 billion for traditional projects” between 2004 and 2013.
That’s a lot of money, but the IRS can’t (or won’t) tell government auditors how much green energy generating capacity their tax subsidies are supporting. The GAO says the IRS “is not required to collect project level data from all taxpayers” who claim an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) or Production Tax Credit (PTC).
“IRS officials stated that IRS is unlikely to collect additional data on these tax credits unless it is directed to do so,” the GAO reported. “Since 1994, GAO has encouraged greater scrutiny of tax expenditures, including data collection. Without project-level data on the ITC and PTC, Congress cannot evaluate their effectiveness as it considers whether to reauthorize or extend them.”
President Barack Obama, A Man of the People in His Rancho Mirage, $4.25 Million, Gated Community Future Home
Rancho Mirage, California … Obama may be coming to town, there goes the neighborhood.
Rumor has it that Barack and Michelle Obama are buying a home in Rancho Mirage, CA for $4.5 million. Hmm, so is this the reason why Obama continued to tank the economy and not to get the US out of a recession so that he could buy a home after his president days in Rancho Mirage $4.25 million, when 8 years ago the same home went for 12.5 million? Oh yes, Obama is just a man of the people. When is the Left going to understand that Barack Obama is a 1%’er. He would rather be in Martha’s Vineyard than mingling with the blue collar riff-raff. The White House says the “rumors” about the home are not true. Which means that they are 100% true because the Obama WH is the most lying, dishonest and corrupt one that this country has sadly ever seen.
Just curious, who thinks it is fair that under Obama millions of people lost their jobs, homes and business and he gets to buy a home like this after increasing the national debt to historic levels? Hmm, wonder what the carbon footprint is on this home?
President Obama and his wife, Michelle, could be the owners of a home in Rancho Mirage listed at $4.25 million before the month is out.
The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates.
The White House said rumors regarding a home in Rancho Mirage are not true.
But area real estate agents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Obamas are the buyers of the Rancho Mirage home. Listing agents Marc Lange and Carl Blea of HOM Sotheby’s International declined to comment.
I have an idea. If the tax payers pay for the home, can Obama move there and leave the White House Now!!!
Rasmussen: 61% of Americans Support the XL Keystone Pipeline as Obama Panders to Enviro-Wackos and Delays Decision Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
WHO IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA AND PANDERS TO AN EXTREMIST MINORITY FOR POLITICAL REASONS?
A recent Rasmussen poll has support for the XL Keystone Pipeline at all time highs. Sixty-one percent of Americans now support the building of the oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while only 27% are opposed. Also, 62% of likely voters also say that the pipeline is good for the economy. However, the anti-fossil fuel Obama would rather pander to the environmental wacko minority and continues to dither and delay the decision on the construction. Just last week Barack Obama once again delayed his decision to go forward on its construction as he pushed it back until after the 2014 midterm elections putting Democrat party politics ahead of jobs for Americans. But of course we were told that Obama’s delay had nothing to do with politics from Debbie Wasserman-Schiltz. Of course not. Also reported in the poll was that 57% of voters say the pipeline is at least somewhat important to how they will vote in the next congressional election, with 23% who say it is Very Important.Democrats better be careful in 2014, there is no way that 57% are all Republicans.
I don’t care what a majority of the American people think, you are stuck with me. I do not work for you.
Support for building the Keystone XL pipeline is now at its highest level ever.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now at least somewhat favor building the major oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while just 27% are opposed. This includes 37% who Strongly Favor the project and 10% who Strongly Oppose it. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Support for building the pipeline is up four points from 57% in January and now has edged above the previous high of 60% found in November 2011 when President Obama first delayed the project for further environmental study.
It is Democrats and the MSM that always claim that the GOP panders to the radical Tea Party, Americans just might want to take a look at who Obama is taking his orders from.
Oh by the way, this weeks jobless claims jump 24,000 this week to 329,000 as Obama refuses to approve a project that would automatically create jobs in the private sector with no tax paid for stimulus.
The number of Americans filing for new unemployment benefits jumped last week, a sign layoffs have increased since touching a seven-year low earlier this month.
Initial claims for jobless benefits, a measure of layoffs, rose by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 329,000 in the week ended April 19, the Labor Department said Thursday. The weekly gain was the largest since December.
Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected 315,000 new claims last week. Claims for the prior week were revised up by 1,000 to 305,000.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Says Politics Had Nothing to do With Obama’s Delay of Keystone XL Pipeline Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE …
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) was on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday spinning like a top. DWS told David Gregory that she does not believe that Barack Obama’s decision to delay the XL Keystone pipeline had nothing to do with politics. HAH! Seriously Debbie, the fact that it is referenced that a decision will be made at the earliest after the 2014 has nothing to do with politics? Sorry, but much like everything with Obama, it has everything to do with politics. This is just another example of Barack Obama kicking the political can of issues down the road and playing partisan politics and putting Democrats ahead of Americans. We know that the Keystone XL pipline construction will create primary jobs and secondary one’s from that. But that does not matter to the Food Stamp president.
DWS discusses Keystone XL Pipeline around the 4:00 mark
DWS went on to say, “It [Keyston XL pipeline] affects multiple states. What’s also true is that incumbent senators like [Louisiana Democrat] Mary Landrieu understand the issues that are important on the ground in their states to their constituents.” Yes, they do and they do not appear to be happy.
This woman has the nerve to talk about Tea party extremists when Democrats and Barack Obama are pandering to the far-left wing environmental wackos in delaying the XL Keystone as even Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stated, “Today’s decision by the administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline. The decision’s irresponsible, unnecessary, and unacceptable. By making it clear that they will not move the process forward until there’s a resolution in a lawsuit in Nebraska, the administration is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever.”
DAVID GREGORY: Are you worried, as the party chair, that this shouldn’t be resolved before the election because of the potential impact it could have on vulnerable Democrats?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at. And that the president makes that decision carefully and he doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is.
DAVID GREGORY: Is the issue in the fall a referendum on President Obama?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, absolutely not. The–
DAVID GREGORY: It’s not?
I suppose the IRS targeting the Tea Party, blaming Benghazi on a video tape and delaying employee mandates for Obamacare were not political either.
Top Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Admits Pushing Hollywood Writers to Obamacare into scripts of TV Shows and Movies … Joseph Goebbels Would Be So Proud
UNBELIEVABLE ACTIONS OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ACTUALLY THIS SHOULD BE TERRIFYING TO AMERICANS.
To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda.
In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics.
Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.
I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. (Joseph Goebbels)
What might be most shocking about the below Valerie Jarrett interview with ‘Top That’ on Pop Sugar.com is that Democrats and especially the Obama Administration does not even hide it anymore that they and the media are the Democrat-Media Complex. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was out in LA this week meeting with television and movie producers and writers to encourage them to include favorable Obamacare mentions in their scripts. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! A government going to the media to shill their agenda for script and product placement to make it appear that they are mainstream and brainwash the people with propaganda. This is still the United States, is it not?
“That’s the cool thing,” a host said to the presidential advisor. “You’ve been reaching out to people that are, you know, outside of the norm of what the president might work with. Who else are you working with? Like celebrities, personalities, things like that?”
“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of propaganda, would be so proud of Valerie Jarrett’s actions.
Control of the arts and media was not just a matter of personnel. Soon the content of every newspaper, book, novel, play, film, broadcast and concert, from the level of nationally-known publishers and orchestras to local newspapers and village choirs, was subject to supervision by the Propaganda Ministry, although a process of self-censorship was soon effectively operating in all these fields, leaving the Ministry in Berlin free to concentrate on the most politically sensitive areas such as insuring that both major newspapers, and the new far-reaching, instantaneous state radio presented the unified Nazi worldview. In his 1933 speech, “Radio as the Eighth Great Power” Goebbels said:
“We .. intend a principled transformation in the worldview of our entire society, a revolution of the greatest possible extent that will leave nothing out, changing the life of our nation in every regard …
The following are Joseph Goebbels’ quotes. It would be pretty difficult to tell whether they were from the Nazi minister of propaganda, or Team Obama:
- “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” (Joseph Goebbels)
- “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” (Joseph Goebbels)
