BARACK OBAMA, THE POVERTY PRESIDENT … IMAGINE THAT, MORE CHILDREN IN POVERTY TODAY THAN DURING 2008 RECESSION.
Since Barack Obama has become president, 3 million more children live in poverty, including an amazing number of black children. So much for the first black president changing the conditions for black American children, instead he has made matters worse. This is simply criminal, especially as this president has caused division among the races and promoted class warfare. Yet, Obama has done nothing to help the poor and those in poverty, even with his redistribution of wealth. There is a reason why Obama is known as the food stamp president. This is a kin to child abuse. Imagine what the MSM news headlines would be if a white Republican president had resided under such conditions for black and Hispanic children? Obama is simply an epic failure and will go down as the worst president in history.
But blacks and Hispanics continue to vote For Democrats in droves as their lives are made more miserable by their liberal agenda. If this same data occurred during the presidency of a Republican the media would be asking, why does the GOP hate children.
Ever since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday.
The 2015 “KIDS COUNT” report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013. It added that the rate dropped from 2012 to 2013, in line with the improving economy.
• The child poverty rate among African Americans (39 percent) was more than double the rate for non-Hispanic whites (14 percent) in 2013.
• In 2013, three in 10 children (22.8 million) lived in families where no parent had full-time, year-round employment. Since 2008, the number of such children climbed by nearly 2.7 million.
• Roughly half of all American Indian children (50 percent) and African-American children (48 percent) had no parent with full-time, year-round employment in 2013, compared with 37 percent of Latino children, 24 percent of non-Hispanic white children and 23 percent of Asian and Pacific Islander children.”
More from USA Today ... So much for the war on poverty.
“The fact that it’s happening is disturbing on lots of levels,” said Laura Speer, the associate director for policy reform and advocacy at the Casey Foundation, a non-profit based in Baltimore. “Those kids often don’t have the access to the things they need to thrive.” The foundation says its mission is to help low-income children in the U.S. by providing grants and advocating for policies that promote economic opportunity.
The report examined data from several federal agencies ranging from 2008 to 2013 to assess state-by-state trends of 16 factors of children’s well-being, including economics, education, health and family and community. It found that one in four children — a total of 18.7 million kids — lived in low-income households in 2013; low-income families were defined as those who use more than 30% of their pre-tax income for housing.
The report also examined racial disparities between children living in low-income households. Black, Hispanic and American Indian children were more than twice as likely to live in poverty than white children, the report said.
MEET THE MOST DANGEROUS PRESIDENT THE UNITED STATES HAS EVER HAD … OBAMA ANNOUNCED PEACE IN OUR TIMES WITH IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.
Barack “Neville Chamberlain” Obama announced peace in our times with Iran and be has made a deal with the devil with one of the most untrusted, radical Islamist, state sponsored terrorist countries in the world. During Obama’s speech in the Rose Garden, Emperor Obama announced that they have a frame work for a deal with Iran and then actually warned Congress to accept the Iran nuclear deal hook, line and sinker. UNREAL. This dangerous president has made a deal with an Islamist regime who cannot be trusted. Then again, neither can Barack Hussein Obama.
President Barack Obama said the framework deal that U.S. and its negotiating partners reached with Iran is a historic milestone that is based on unprecedented verification measures and not trust alone.
“After many months of tough principled diplomacy, we have achieved the framework for that deal, and it is a good deal,” Obama said at the White House Thursday. “It is our best option by far.”
“Iran will never be permitted to develop a nuclear weapon,” Obama said. If the Islamic Republic follows through on its promises “we will be able to resolve one of the greatest threats to our security.”
He now faces a tough task convincing Republicans on Capitol Hill that Secretary of State John Kerry was able to secure enough in the negotiations.
APPEASEMENT NEVER WORKS AND NO ONE SHOULD TRUST IRAN OR OBAMA FOR THAT FACT.
Sorry America, we have seen the likes of this before. Wake the hell up America and pay attention. Turn off your reality TV or whatever you have been doing during the past 8 years and pay attention. Barack Obama lied about Fast & Furious, he lied about Obamacare, he lied about the IRS scandal, he lied about Benghazi, he has been lying about the economy and now we are supposed to believe him when it comes to this? Do you really believe that any deal can be made with any of these people? For Americans who have no clue of history, Peace in Our time turned into Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s excuse to keep going, spreading across Europe and starting WWII.
EXIT QUESTION: Is Obama insane or does he really want to turn the Middle East into a nuclear mushroom cloud?
DON’T CROSS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA OR YOU WILL BE RETALIATED AGAINST … WHEN DEMOCRATS ATTACK THEIR OWN FOR NOT FOLLOWING IN LOCK STEP.
The Obama Department of Justice headed by Eric Holder is bringing criminal corruption charges against Democrat, New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez. The DOJ is alleging that Menendez used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts. Really, doesn’t Barack Obama do that every day with the Oval Office? How many crony and Obama campaign bundlers have been rewarded HERE, HERE and HERE? No quid pro quo here. How many were given so-called “green energy” government money to Obama donors? How about Obama using the office of the President of the United States in conjunction with the IRS to attack Conservatives. Where are those DOJ charges, hmm?
In response, Sen. Menendez told reporters Friday night he has “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law” and “I am not going anywhere.”
Sen. Robert Menendez Defends Himself Against Anticipated Federal Charges
The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against Sen. Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.
People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN first reported. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.
Menendez told reporters Friday night he has “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law.”
He added: “And I am not going anywhere.”
The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with.
I am no fan of Sen. Menedez and certainly do not support much of what he puts forth, but the question one might want to ask here, is why now? One does not have to look any further than Sen. Menedez being an outspoken critic of Obama and his policies on Cuba and Iran. Don’t cross Obama or this think skinned, vindictive president will go after you. His actions have made him Obama’s least favorite Democrat … vengeance is mine say the Obamamessiah.
Who can forget when Sen. Menedez said in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee back in January 2015, “the More I hear from the Obama administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran.” Menedez had nothing good to say about how the Obama administration was handling negotiations with Iran. We all saw how Obama and his hacks treated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his speech to a joint session of Congress and after. Why should we be surprised that Obama would put Democrat Robert Menedez on his enemies list.
The Gateway Pundit also reminds us of Robert Menedez’s recent comments where he blasted the Obama administration for the historic bad deal they reached with the Castro regime in Cuba. If you are a Democrat, you are not allowed to disagree with this president or you will be dealt with swiftly and severely. Its kind of ironic that the Obama administration would go after any kind of corruption when the Obama presidency has been nothing but corruption and scandals.
Jamiel Shaw Sr.’s Son was Murdered By an Illegal Alien (Dreamer & DACA Recipient) Pedro Espinoza from Mexico in 2008 … Do Black Lives Really Matter, or Does It Matter Only If You are Shot By a White Person or White Police Man?
JAMIEL SHAW ASKS A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER NEED TO ANSWER … “DO BLACK LIVES MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER ONLY IF YOU ARE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR A WHITE POLICE OFFICER?
Jamiel Shaw Sr. testified in front of a subcommittee Wednesday, chaired by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). All should watch and take notice of what happened to Mr. Shaw’s son, 17 year old Jamiel Shaw II, who was violently gunned down by Pedro Espinoza in 2008. Pedro Espinoza is a member of the 18th Street gang, a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, and a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. Hardly the harmless and innocent people that Obama, Democrats and gutless Republicans have told us what DREAMer’s are. Espinoza was convicted and sentenced to death in November 2012.
However, this is greater than just a senseless killing. Below is a must watch VIDEO … Do black lives matter? Well, for Barack Obama, only when it fits his political agenda. If a black person is killed by another black person, and especially an illegal, even a gang banger with multiple arrests, the answer is probably not.
“My son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. My family’s peace and freedom was stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal.
He continued: “Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person. They want you to believe that DREAM Act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth.”
THIS IS A MUST WATCH VIDEO … DO BLACK LIVES MATTER? DO AMERICAN LIVES MATTER?
Jurors deliberated for less than 4 hours on May 2, before finding Pedro Espinoza, 23, guilty of 1st degree murder for the 2008 shooting death of 17-yaer-old football star Jamiel Shaw Jr. in Los Angeles. They have suggested that he receive the death penalty, reports NBC Los Angeles.
Gallup CEO Jim Clifton … The Official Obama 5.6% Unemployment Rate Amounts to a Big Lie … Tells CNBC He Might “Suddenly Disappear” for Telling the Truth About Unemployment Lie
Well, if Gallup CEO suddenly disappears we will know why …
Gallup CEO Jim Clifton says during an interview with CNBC that he is worried he might “suddenly disappear” and not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans. How sad is it that many would not put it past the Obama administration to actually retaliate against an American citizen for speaking the truth?
The CNBC interview came one day after Clifton had penned a gutsy opinion piece on Gallup’s web site, defiantly calling the government’s 5.6 percent unemployment figure “The Big Lie” in the article’s headline. His appearance on CNBC was apparently to walk back the “lie” part of the title and reframe the jobs data as just hopelessly deceptive.
Clifton stated the following on CNBC:
“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”
But after making that opening comment in case he suddenly goes missing, Jim Clifton went on to eviscerate the legitimacy of the cheerful spin given to the unemployment data by the Obama White House and liberal MSMS, stating to CNBC viewers that the percent of full time jobs in this country as a percent of the adult population “is the worst it’s been in 30 years.” Otherwise known as Obama’s Big Lie. Then again, hasn’t the entire Barack Obama presidency been one big lie and scandal after another?
Gallup CEO: 13 Million Jobs Lost – Only 3 Million Created Under Obama
Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO – The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment:
Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.
Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheer-leading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.
None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.
There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.
Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.
There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.
IRSGATE: TIGTA Tells Watchdog Group ‘Cause of Action’ 2,509 Pages of IRS Documents Were Given to the Obama White House … But TIGTA Wont Release Docs Citing Tax Code Privacy
WHERE IS THE MSM TALKING ABOUT THIS STORY … THE GREATEST WHITE HOUSE SCANDAL EVER!!!
Guess what America, the IRS scandal that was first said was only two rogue agents in Cincinnati, Ohio, then went to the stonewalling on Lois Lerner‘s missing emails, has now gone all the way to the Barack Obama White House and the MSM is no where to be found in reporting the story. The IRS watchdog group, Cause of Action, through the Freedom of Information (FOIA) got the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to admit that there are 2509 pages of IRS documents that the Internal Revenue Service gave to the Obama White House in unauthorized requests. It does not get any more illegal than this.
However, the IRS watch watchdog (TIGTA) is refusing to abide by a judges ruling compelling them to turn over the documents. This might be the most incredible and audacious excuse ever from the Obama administration. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration is stating that they are not providing the documents to ‘Cause of Action’ because of tax codes and privacy concerns. Are you kidding me? PRIVACY CONCERNS!!! You certainly had no problem violating these individuals and companies privacy by giving them illegally to the Obama White House. UNREAL.
An IRS watchdog is acknowledging that thousands of documents related to requests between the White House and the tax agency for unauthorized tax information exist — but says it must withhold them all due to privacy concerns.
The revelation by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) came as part of a lawsuit filed by non-profit group Cause of Action, which began investigating whether the IRS was improperly sharing taxpayer information with the White House in 2012.
Cause of Action originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking the IRS to turn over any documents, if they existed, related to correspondence between the IRS and the White House about requests for tax returns for individuals or businesses.
When the IRS said it was unable to do so because of constraints in the Internal Revenue Code, the group filed the lawsuit. A judge ruled that the IRS must turn over any relevant documents to Cause of Action by Dec. 1 to comply with the FOIA request.
On Tuesday, an attorney with TIGTA wrote a letter to Cause of Action, and acknowledged that the watchdog had located “2,509 pages of documents potentially responsive to your request.” Of those, TIGTA confirmed that 2,043 were in fact responsive to the request.
However, TIGTA said it could not release the documents to the group, citing the tax code.
This is the greatest scandal in American government and the media is no where to be found because the president is a Democrat and the first black elected president.
WHAT IF … The United States of America Had a Lawless President Who Could Care Less About the US Constitution & Was Hellbent on Harming We the People?
WHAT IF …
Sadly, the American people elected not once, but twice a president in Barack Obama that is not a “what if,” but a what is. To Obama, elections only matter when he wins. They are inconsequential when he gets shellacked and a real “ass-whuppin.”
This is a must watch VIDEO.
Fox News, The Five: Liberal Bob Beckel Flips his Middle Finger at Jesse Watters in Heated Post Election Discussion Clash on Democrats Playing the Race Card
Keep it classy Bob, keep it classy … Jesse Watters actually nails it.
Bob Beckel, the token liberal host on ‘The Five’ lost his cool and gave Jesse Watters the middle finger as he had no factual comeback to the accusations that Democrats had used the race card during this past midterm election. What is most interesting about the events that took place is that Jesse Watters, more known for his ‘Watters World’ segments on The O’Reilly Factor actually nailed the Democrats use of the race card and race baiting 100%, which is most likely why it hit such a nerve with Bob Beckel.
Watters said, “I think I know why they are doing it. If anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party. It threatens any ability to get the White House. It threatens any ability to control urban areas. It threatens money, power … they try to scared blacks into not trying to cross the line.”
BINGO!!! When you have a voting block that continually and blindly votes +90% for one party, that political party will do anything to keep that overwhelming majority. Imagine what presidential races would be like if blacks voted only 60 to 70% for Democrats?
The panel was discussing Democrats’ use of the “race card” against Republicans before and after the midterm elections when Watters argued, “Anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party.”
“Oh, come on,” Beckel responded in a frustrated tone.
Later in the segment, Beckel claimed the examples cited during the show were not representative of the Democratic party as a whole.
“Were there any white Democrats denouncing their rhetoric?” Watters replied. “I didn’t hear any. So they’re OK with it.”
“I’m denouncing it,” Beckel shot back.
“You’re not a leader,” Watters said.
After that critical comment, Beckel flipped Watters the bird — and the cameras caught it.
UPDATE I: Beckel later apologized during the show for his actions.
How about enforcing the gun laws that already are on the books before you start making more?
According to Vice President Joe Biden on CNN, the NRA and Tea Party patriots are responsible for upholding the Second Amendment and preventing an overreaching and imperial government from passing new laws that would take away “We the People’s” right to bear arms. Of course Biden said it in a much more disgusting and disparaging manner. Who knew that it was “Teabaggers”, individuals who slaps another person in the face with their nad sack, that were responsible for preventing new gun control laws. Nice, eh? But what else would be expect from this vile, divisive Obama presidency?
Vice president Joe Biden has disparaged gun-rights advocates as “tea baggers,” CNN host John Walsh told reporters today. Walsh, the former host of America’s Most Wanted, recounted that he bonded with Biden over the need for more gun control and their distaste for the National Rifle Association..
“I said to Joe Biden, ‘90 percent of Americans are for a responsible background check for a gun, and you know what this Congress has done? Not voted on it, not brought it to the floor, not introduced a bill,’” he recalled to reporters during an event for his upcoming program, a crime show called The Hunt. “I said, ‘They’re all scared shitless of the NRA, aren’t they?’”
“‘John, every one of them,’” the vice president replied, according to Walsh. “‘Because the NRA will run a tea-bagger against you. . . . They’ll put 5 million bucks against you.’”
Imagine being called names and the VP using a slur like “Teabagger” for some one who finds it important to protect the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution. But use any type of slur against Gays, transgenders or even call someone an “illegal” and you are condemned as being hateful.
On another note, hey John Walsh, you have been a tremendous victims rights advocate, but don’t push it. I can respect John Walsh for all that he has done for missing persons and being a victim advocate, but that does not give him carte blanche on opinions on crime. Just because you claim you can see both sides, does not mean you are not bias. Case and point, you claim that it is ludicrous for the NRA’s solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun. Really John, an 80 year old teacher. Who is being ludicrous? Walsh went on to say, politicians are “scared sh*tless” of the NRA. One might say it’s about time these individuals are scared of something. But let’s get your facts straight John, it is not the NRA that politicians fear, it is the millions and millions of gun owning voters who are doing nothing more than using their Second Amendment rights. I would have expected more from some one of John Walsh than take the lazy, liberal way out of wanting new gun control laws that the LEFT uses as a direct assault on individuals legal rights to bear Arms.
“I am the guy that has seen both sides of the issue,” Walsh told reporters Monday. “I own guns. I’m the father of a murdered child. I’ve done nothing but track violence in America since my son was murdered. We have a serious problem with guns in this country. And we refuse to address it. And the NRA solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous,” he said.
Walsh said the NRA is so deeply in the pocket of the gun industry that “they’re not a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, they’re a gun manufacturer rep.” He also said Vice President Joe Biden recently agreed with him that politicians are “scared s—less” of the NRA.
Rasmussen: 71% of Voters Believe the IRS Deliberately Destroyed E-mails to Hide Guilt of Criminal Activity
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a remarkably 71% of voters believe that the IRS deliberately and willfully destroyed emails related to IRS-gate and the targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide evidence of criminal activity. Only 22% believe the IRS did not break the law, while 4% were undecided. It is fair to say that this polling is a resounding condemnation against the IRS that crosses all political parties. How bad is it when a government agency like the IRS is believed to play partisan politics and cannot be trusted?
Think about this, more than 7 in 10 individuals surveyed believe that the IRS committed a criminal activity in destruction of property and obstruction of justice to hide the guilt of their even greater criminal activity as a Democrat party ignores it and Barack Obama calls it a phoney scandal. This should be chilling for all Americans.
Most voters think it’s likely the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mails about its investigations of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide its criminal behavior. Two-out-of-three now believe IRS employees involved in these investigations should be jailed or fired, and most suspect the agency of targeting other political opponents of the Obama administration.
As we are reminded by Real Clear Politics, a recent Fox News poll found similar results, 76% of voters surveyed believed that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails were deliberately destroyed. The distrust in the IRS was spread across all parties, including 90% of Republicans, 74% of Independents and 63% of Democrats. Only 12% of respondents believe the emails were accidently destroyed.
It gets better, these are the folks in charge of enforcing Obamacare. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya America?
