AMERICANS NAME GOVERNMENT THE #1 PROBLEM FACING THE UNITED STATES …
Americans are fed up with the increasing and oppressive government. In a recent Gallup poll, Americans named the government as the biggest problem facing the United States. For the past 4 months, the government has been named the biggest problem facing “We the People”. They are correct. Even with such issues as terrorism, healthcare, race relations and immigration are extremely important problems facing Americans, the government, the economy and unemployment have been at the top of the list for the past year. In the end, it is our lawless government that refuses to follow the US Constitution, our government that fails to adequately deal with border security, our government that makes the Middle East worse, our government that continually regulates us in a way that our Founding Fathers never intended and our government that spies on us and treats law-abiding, legal US citizens as a greater threat than terrorists.
Americans have grown weary of a government that could care less about the people and only about their power. Every day we are witness to a Democrat president who shreds the Constitution and a gutless Republican Congress who is too cowardice to defend it.
The government is America’s most important problem, according to a new poll.
In a Gallup poll released Thursday, 18 percent of Americans named government as the biggest problem facing the U.S.
The economy trailed closely behind as an important problem with 11 percent, followed by “unemployment/jobs” at 10 percent.
The poll shows a slight increase in those who are dissatisfied with government. In February, 17 percent answered that the government is the most important problem. Americans also seem to be optimistic about the economy. Last month, 16 percent of Americans said that the economy was the most important problem — nearly tying with government. That figure is now down 5 percentage points.
Americans’ confidence in all three branches of government is at or near record lows, according to a major survey that has measured attitudes on the subject for 40 years.
The 2014 General Social Survey finds only 23 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the Supreme Court, 11 percent in the executive branch and 5 percent in Congress. By contrast, half have a great deal of confidence in the military.
As Ronald Reagen profoundly stated so many years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.”
Ronald Reagan also said so many years ago, “We are a nation that has a government. Our government has no power except for that granted by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.” WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.

40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
YouGov Poll of Likely Democratic Voters: Elizabeth Warren Leads Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire
MAYBE HILLARY CLINTON IS NOT INVISIBLE AFTER ALL, POLLS SHOW IF UBER LIB ELIZABETH WARREN RUNS … ITS ANYONE’S TO WIN …
A funny thing happened on the way to the 2016 Hillary Clinton coronation, maybe Hillary is not as invisible as the political pundits think as populist Lefties do not support her. A YouGov poll of likely Democratic voters for MoveOn.org and Democracy for America showed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ahead of Hillary Clinton in Iowa, 31 % to 24% and in New Hampshire, Warren leads Clinton, 30% to 27%. Don’t worry Hillary, there is nothing to be concerned with here, it is not as though Iowa and New Hampshire and two early and influential primary states. Oh wait, they are. Warren and her anti-business ideology is the darling of the far Left. Is Hillary Clinton too yesterday for the base of the Democrat party?
However, Elizabeth Warren has claimed in the past that she would not run. One has to wonder whether she can turn down this once in a life-time opportunity. Also, if she does change her mind and runs, and Hillary does as well, Hillary Clinton will be pulled so far Left in the Democrat primaries, there will be no coming back to the middle in the general election
Populist groups cheering “Run Warren Run,” today released 2016 election polls from Iowa and New Hampshire showing Sen. Elizabeth Warren ahead of dominant Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The YouGov poll of likely Democratic voters for MoveOn.org and Democracy for America also found that 79 percent want Warren and majorities support her anti-Wall Street positions.
Warren has said she doesn’t plan to challenge Clinton, though several others have indicated that they are looking at a bid, including Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
The groups cautioned that the poll mostly shows that voters are extremely open to her candidacy rather than her being a Clinton killer. They hope to use the poll to encourage Warren to change her position and get into the race.
Hey John Kerry, why the long face?
In a new survey, John Kerry was ranked the worst United States Secretary of State in the last 50 years. The results of the 2014 Ivory Tower survey ranked Henry Kissinger the most effective secretary of state with 32.2% of the vote. Yes, the same Henry Kissinger that Code Pink nut-jobs wanted to arrest for war crimes. He was followed by James Baker, Madeleine Albright, and Hillary Clinton, as judged by a survey of 1,615 international relations scholars. Although, I am a bit skeptical of Hillary Clinton being a better Sec. of State than Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell or George Schultz. Can anyone name one single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton? I didn’t think so.
The results of the 2014 Ivory Tower survey—a collaboration between Foreign Policy and the Teaching, Research, and International Policy (TRIP) project at the College of William & Mary—provide an insider’s guide. Responses from 1,615 IR scholars drawn from 1,375 U.S. colleges and universities determined rankings for the leading Ph.D., terminal master’s, and undergraduate programs in IR. (The scholars were asked to list the top five institutions in each category.) The survey also quizzed respondents about recent historical events and future policy challenges: Just how plausible is a U.S. war with China, for example, and who was the most effective secretary of state over the past 50 years? (Hint: Neither Condoleezza Rice nor John Kerry.)
The latest Des Moines Register poll has Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the leads the GOP pack for presidential candidates for 2016. The poll takes into account Mitt Romney removing himself from the race and allocated his percentages accordingly.According to the poll results, Gov. Walker leads the large GOP pack with 15% of GOP presidential contenders. The poll shows that Walker is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucus-goers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate. It was just last week that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wowed them in Iowa and asked for Iowans to take a further look at him. Between now and 2016 is an eternity, but it is important to get noticed in the beginning otherwise you will be pealed off before you even get to the primaries.
Iowa Freedom Summit 2015 Scott Walker Speech
Presidential stage newcomer Scott Walker, the conservative reform pit bull who inspired death threats from the left, has become the one to watch in the race for the Republican nomination a year out from the Iowa caucuses.
At 15 percentage points, he leads a big, tightly packed field of potential contenders in a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll of likely Republican caucusgoers. The caucuses are scheduled for Feb. 1, 2016.
The Wisconsin governor is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucusgoers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate, the poll shows.
“He’s in a sweet spot,” pollster J. Ann Selzer said. “People who don’t want an ultra-conservative think he’s OK. People who don’t want a moderate think he’s OK.”
Just one point behind is Rand Paul, a U.S. senator from Kentucky and the son of three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul, a hero to dissidents who want to shake up government. Paul draws support from the same anti-establishment well.
CNN Poll: Majority of Americans Back the Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline as Barack Obama Vows to Veto It if Passed
Shocker, Barack Obama once against doing something against the will of the American people …
A recent CNN poll shows that a majority of Americans are in favor of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. A resounding 57% are in favor of building the 1,179 mile Canada to Texas pipeline, while only 28% oppose. Of course you already know what side of the fence Barack Obama takes on this matter. Obama continues to pander to the environmental wackos and facing no more elections, once again goes against the will of the American people. No matter how many jobs, permanent ones, part time or otherwise are created by this oil pipeline project, the fact of the matter is that jobs will be created. This is a bad thing how? But Obama will tell you he wants to create jobs for the American people. Really? Even though Americans are overwhelmingly in favor of the building of the Keystone XL pipeline, the House has passed the construction of it, Obama has vowed to veto the bill. Yeah, he really cares about putting people to work.
Poll Question: Based on what you have read or heard, do you favor or oppose building the Keystone XL pipeline?
A majority of Americans favor the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline — a result that could give Republicans a boost as they move toward a showdown with President Barack Obama over the project — a CNN/ORC poll has found.
The 1,179-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline is backed by 57% of the 1,011 Americans surveyed on Dec. 18-21. Just 28% oppose it, while 15% say they are unsure.
The controversial project has become the subject of a battle between liberal environmentalists who argue it would contribute to global warming and conservatives who say it would create jobs and help the United States break away from Middle Eastern oil.
President Barack Obama has threatened to veto a measure that the Senate is set to vote on as soon as next week, which would end the State Department’s six-year-old review of the project and authorize its construction immediately. Obama has said he objects to the decision-making process being removed from the executive branch.
Not only do 57% back the construction of the pipeline, in the same CNN poll, as reported at The Daily Caller, “a majority of those polled, at 57 percent, say global warming will not pose a serious threat to their way of life,” and that only 43 percent “expect global warming to threaten them.”
Imagine that, race relations are worse under the reign of a community agitator?
A new Bloomberg Politics poll shows that 53% of Americans say that race relations have gotten worse since Barack Obama was elected present, while only 9% believe that they have got better. Wasn’t Barack Obama supposed to be the first post-racial president that was supposed to bring the races together and bridge the divide? What a joke that was. Who could not have seen this coming with Barack Obama as a hindrance to racial harmony when one considers he was a community organizer and a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “God Damn America”.
How many people foolishly voted for Barack Obama thinking that he would take leadership in being a bridge, not a wedge to race relationships?
Obama Speaks Of Rev. Wright In This 1995 Interview … “He is a wonderful man.”
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.

President Barack Obama had hoped his historic election would ease race relations, yet a majority of Americans, 53 percent, say the interactions between the white and black communities have deteriorated since he took office, according to a new Bloomberg Politics poll. Those divisions are laid bare in the split reactions to the decisions by two grand juries not to indict white police officers who killed unarmed black men in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y.
Both times, protesters responded with outrage and politicians called for federal investigations. Yet Americans don’t think of the cases as a matched set of injustices, the poll found. A majority agreed with the Ferguson decision, while most objected to the conclusion in the Staten Island death, which was captured on video. The divergent opinions—52 percent agreed on Ferguson compared with 25 percent who approved of the Staten Island outcome—add to an ongoing discussion that was inflamed when Officer Daniel Pantaleo was seen in the July video putting what appeared to be a chokehold on Eric Garner, a 43-year-old man suspected of selling untaxed cigarettes. Garner could be heard saying, “I can’t breathe,” and died of a heart attack in what a medical examiner ruled a homicide. The grand jury decision not to charge Pantaleo came just 12 days after a similar panel in Ferguson declined to charge Officer Darren Wilson, who in August shot to death 18-year-old Michael Brown. That altercation was not captured on video, and the prosecutor presented evidence of a physical confrontation between the two men before the fatal shots were fired.
Yup, for Barack Obama Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a wonderful man until his pastor became a political liability for him and Obama threw Wright under the bus.
Louisiana US Senate Runoff Election Day: Rep. Bill Cassidy (R) and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) … Incumbent Landrieu Headed for Historic Defeat
Louisiana Senate runoff election day:
Today, December 6, 2014, is the runoff US Senate election in Louisiana between challenger, Rep. Bill Cassidy and incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu. As reported at FiveThirtyEight, it appears that Sen. Landrieu is headed for an epic and historic defeat. The FiveThirtyEight model projects Landrieu losing by a 57.8% to 42.2% margin. It may not be the greatest defeat for an incumbent senator; however, it would be in the top 10. Mary Landrieu’s last gasp for any shot of winning reelection went up in flames with her “Fail Mary” XL Keystone pipeline Senate vote. That was pretty much, game, set and match for the incumbent. According to the RCP polling average, Cassidy leads Landrieu by 20.2 points.
By days end, the Republican party will have a +9 senate pickup for 2014.
The FiveThirtyEight model projects her losing the runoff 99.8 percent of the time, and by a 57.8 percent to 42.2 percent margin. That’s mostly based on polling, which can be unreliable in a low-turnout runoff.
What else do we know? The early voters in the Louisiana runoff have been vastly more Republican-leaning than early voters in last month’s election. And while whites were only 65 percent of early voters in November, they have been 70 percent for the runoff. Registered Republicans were only 34 percent of early voters in November, but they’ve been 39 percent of early voters for the runoff.
If this change in voter makeup holds on Saturday, it’s obviously very bad news for Landrieu. Assuming she wins the same percentage of white voters as Democratic candidates did in November, she’ll lose the runoff by roughly 60 percent to 40 percent, or about what the model forecasts.
A defeat that large would be the largest for an incumbent this year, topping Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor’s 17-point loss. It would come close to Arkansas’s Blanche Lincoln’s 21-point loss in 2010, which ranks as the eighth-largest ever, as well as the largest loss for an incumbent since William Hathaway of Maine in 1978.
Ben Carson Says that Race Relations Were Better Before Presdent Barack Obama … Things Have Gotten Worse Because of Obama’s Manipualtion of Minority Communties
RACE RELATIONS WORSE UNDER OBAMA … THE GREAT DIVIDER.
With the backdrop of the racially charged Ferguson, Missouri unrest in the “no true bill,” no indictment of officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, former John Hopkins neurosurgeon and probably GOP 2016 presidential hopeful Ben Carson was interviewed on The Hugh Hewitt radio show, had nothing good to say regarding President Barack Obama and race relations in the United States. Carson stated that race relations have gotten worse under the first black president as “things were better before this president was elected”. I would have to agree. When asked whether Obama plays the race card, Carson said … “yes, absolutely.”
Carson cited Obama’s criticism of the police in the Henry Louis Gates incident and his remarks that his son would look like Trayvon Martin and accused the president and other progressives of trying to “manipulate, particularly minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.” And that the president “absolutely” plays the race card, but he said the president was attempting not to do so in the aftermath of the grand jury decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson.
What is sad is that many people thought that the election of Barack Obama would make the situation between the races better. In 2008, exit polls showed that voters were optimistic as they elected Obama … 47% said they thought race relations would get better, 34% said they would stay about the same and only 15% expected them to deteriorate. Personally, I thought they were out of their minds. Especially because Barack Obama had been a “community organizer” and a member of a black liberation theology church in Chicago with Reverend Jeremiah Wright as his pastor. That was then, this is now. In NBC 2014 exit polls, only 20% think things have gotten better, while 38% believe it has gotten worse.
Amid episodes like the unrest over the summer in Ferguson, Missouri, how have American voters’ perceptions of race relations changed since Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president? The 2014 NBC News national exit poll found that voters are twice as likely to say that things have gotten worse than say they have improved.
In the historic 2008 election, the exit poll asked voters how they thought race relations in this country would fare in the next few years. On balance, voters were optimistic as they elected Obama – 47% said they thought race relations would get better. Thirty-four percent thought they would stay about the same. Just 15% expected them to deteriorate.
Our latest poll suggests that far from healing America’s racial wounds, the first black president has reopened them. Obama the uniter is actually the great divider.
By an almost 3-1 margin, Americans say race relations have worsened under the man who was supposed to usher in a golden era of “post-racial” relations.
Six years after electing the nation’s first black president, a stunning 46% in the new IBD/TIPP Poll draw that conclusion compared to 18% who don’t. Nearly one in four believe race relations have gotten “much worse” under President Obama, while 35% say they’ve stayed the same.
Vox Populi Polling: Republican Bill Cassidy Leads Democrat Incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu 53% to 42% Ahead of Louisiana US Senate Election
Ahead of the December 6th Louisiana US Senate runoff election, a Vox Populi poll has Republican challenger US Rep. Bill Cassidy leading Democrat incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu, 53% to 42%. This on the foot-heals of Sen. Landrieu’s failure to deliver passage of the XL Keystone pipeline bill in the Senate. Between Landrieu’s failures and President Barack Obama’s poor approval ratings, it would appear that the GOP will have a net pick up of 9 senate seats for the 2014 midterm elections. Add Obama’s illegal execution order of amnesty to the mix as well.
A new Louisiana survey released by Vox Populi Polling today found that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Cassidy leads Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu 53 to 42 percent, with 5 percent unsure. In addition, Cassidy is up big with Independents, winning with them 58 to 31 percent over Landrieu. Cassidy has seen a big bump after the Nov. 4 open primary. In our recent Oct. 13-14 survey, Cassidy led Landrieu 48 to 44 percent in a head-to-head, with 8 percent unsure.
On the heels of last night’s United States Senate vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline, it is interesting to note that voters aren’t moved by Mary Landrieu’s efforts to bring the legislation before the Senate for a floor vote. When asked if it made voters more likely to vote for the incumbent Democrat, 39 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Bill Cassidy and 32 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Mary Landrieu.
RCP has Cassidy far out ahead of Landrieu by 16 points.
