The only real hope for justice you'll find is posthumously, when someone — either your family or President Romney's attorney general, or both — drags Øbamurderer and his whole lying crew of liars into court for their criminal negligence which led directly to your wrongful death.
Earlier this summer, with almost no media coverage, President Barack Obama quietly locked down tens of billions of barrels of oil and immense reserves of natural gas from development for the next five years.
As the nation was focused on the U.S. Supreme Court's health care decision, Obama reinstituted a moratorium on offshore oil drilling that shuts down about 85 percent of America's Outer Continental Shelf from exploration or drilling. Currently, the federal government only allows searching for energy on 2 percent of the OCS.
The Obama decision, which overrides a previous decision by a Democratic Congress and President George W. Bush in 2008, blocks the exploration and development of an estimated 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the OCS....
Gas prices, which stood at $1.84 per gallon when Obama took office, had climbed to more than double that rate ($3.82) as of Monday, Oct. 8, and he has almost institutionalized $3 to $4 per-gallon gas.
Drilling permits issued, which rose by 58 percent during Bill Clinton's years as president and by 116 percent during the George W. Bush era, have fallen by 36 percent under Obama.
While U.S. oil production has increased during Obama's presidency, it has risen — despite his best efforts to stifle energy production — because it has climbed on non-government lands, such as the Bakken formation, where Obama has little power to curtail such production.
To some observers, it is as if Obama is waging a war against domestic oil and coal production, while he touts government subsidies to solar firms like Solyndra that reward his donors and then go bankrupt.
The president's most recent budget proposal would add some $7.6 trillion in new federal debt. The additional debt-service costs would add up to an average of about $1,300 per family per year under the current tax system. Families of relatively modest means would see hundreds of dollars a year in new taxes, and better-off families would see thousands or tens of thousands of dollars a year in new taxes. But not until after the November election, of course.
If voters want to avoid a painful replay of the fiscal failures of the much-derided Bush administration, their only choice in 2012 demands voting out Barack Obama and giving Mitt Romney a clean shot at real change.
760,000 more women are out of work [since Øfascist took office: "the number of women out of work has increased by 15 percent"]. Obama has fewer women in his White House than his predecessors George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
In the much celebrated [January] unemployment report, the labor force participation rate had plummeted to 63.7%, the most rapid decline in U.S. history. That means that under President Obama nearly 5 million Americans have fled the workforce in hopeless despair.... Bureau of Labor Statistics reported... that an additional 1.2 million workers had dropped out of the work force altogether, giving up hope under Obama.
In January, 2009, 11.6 million Americans were unemployed, with 23% of those unemployed for more than 6 months. By January, 2012, 12.8 million were unemployed, with 43% of those out of work more than 6 months.
As Phil [Klein] notes, the reason for the drop in unemployment is not that people have suddenly gone out and found a bunch of new full time jobs. It's that part time workers have given up looking for full time work and are now considering their part time jobs to be full time.
During the Obama Administration alone, College Board has reported a 25 percent overall increase in college tuition.... [S]tudents have had a much harder time paying off their student loans. Two years after graduation the student loan default rate is 9.1 percent — up from 8.8 percent in the previous report. The more shocking figure is at the three-year mark, when the default rate increases to 13.4 percent.
"Since the Obama administration has been in, things have been tough on the coal economy," one West Virginia coal miner said. "It just keeps going downhill, and without it West Virginia will be one state that won't make it."
Indeed, the working age population has increased by 8.4 million since President Obama entered office. With the same labor force participation as on Inauguration Day in January, 2009 (which would be closer to a real recovery), that would require 5.5 million new jobs just to keep up with the aforementioned population growth.... As of August, 2012, the economy was still suffering a net loss of jobs during Obama's entire Presidency up to that point.
Moreover, the BLS also reported on Friday that the number of full time jobsdeclined by 216,000 last month....
"With The Economy Struggling Through One Of The Weakest Recoveries On Record And Employers Adding Jobs At A Slower Rate Than A Year Ago, Projections Are That The Country's Jobless Rate Will Not Return To Normal Levels For Years To Come." (Washington Post, 10/18/12)
[T]he percentage of Americans who are employed has... [ranged] from just 58.2 to 58.8 percent. In fact, in the 64 years that the federal government has been keeping tallies on the employment-population ratio, the result has never remained within such a narrow ribbon for a longer period of time....
In the 300 months [before the Error of Øfascist]... spanning February 1984 through January 2009, the percentage of Americans who were employment was always higher than it's ever been in the 31 months since Obamacare's passage.
More than 12 million seniors have selected the popular Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, and 7.4 million are at risk of losing their coverage because of ObamaCare's $156 billion in cuts to the program. According to the Congressional Budget Office, MA will be cut by $308 billion over the next 10 years: $156 billion in direct cuts to the program and $152 billion in indirect payment reductions from the interactions with the other cuts contained in the health overhaul law.
"[M]ost people with Medicare Advantage plans will begin to see higher out of pocket payments, premium increases, and a reduction in benefits, costing $46 per month or more on average. This is scheduled to start in 2013.
"Even more dangerous is the possibility that some Medicare providers will stop treating Medicare patients entirely because of the loss of income from these cuts. According to the 2012 Medicare Trustees report, the payment cuts will cause an estimated 15% of Medicare providers to operate in the red."
According to the Census Bureau, the poverty rate has gone from 12.5 percent in 2007 to 13.2 percent in 2008 to 14.3 percent in 2009 to 15.1 percent in 2010 to 15.0 percent in 2011. The last time it was higher than 15.1 percent was in 1965, when the nation's anti-poverty programs were just taking effect.
[T]he government spent enough on welfare last year to cut a check for nearly $60,000 for each impoverished household it provided with benefits. If this isn't insane, what is? The medium income in the U.S. is around $50,000! The official poverty line is an annual income of $23,021 for a family of four. Just do the math.
In 2011 about 16.8 million households qualified as living below the federal poverty level, which means that if the government's welfare spending were equally divided between them, they would each get $59,523. That exceeds the pay of many hard-working Americans. The CRS also confirms that, under Obama, federal spending for low-income programs has skyrocketed.
Here are the figures; government spending for welfare ballooned 23%, from $563 million in 2008 to $692 million, in 2009. The administration attributes it to "recession-sensitive" programs such as Medicaid and food stamps. The reality is that the Obama Administration has been promoting food stamps like there's no tomorrow, even offering states that sign up the most recipients cash bonuses.

California officials concede that their state's Obamacare exchange will hike premiums for policyholders by up to 25 percent. In the District of Columbia, small businesses are being forced to buy overpriced insurance on an Obamacare exchange.... Earlier, Obamacare resulted in hikes of 41-47% in health insurance premiums for some policyholders in Connecticut.
During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.
After Islamist radicals stormed our embassy in Cairo and terrorists killed our ambassador to Libya on Sept. 11, I further reported that Obama also skipped his daily intelligence meeting every day in the week leading up to the attacks. The day after the attack, he scheduled but then canceled his daily intelligence meeting, while finding time to go to Las Vegas for a campaign rally.
Even the liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus commented about "Obama's Where's Waldo Presidency." He blows off paying tribute to our veterans, avoids meetings with world leaders whom he has personal piques with (Great Britain's Gordon Brown, Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu), and ignores the work done by the Simpson-Bowles Deficit Commission, his Jobs Council, meetings with Congressional leaders — even those of his own party. The list goes on and on.

After months of litigation and Freedom of Information Act requests, the ACLU obtained documents from the federal government proving that real-time monitoring of electronic communications inside the U.S. has climbed 60 percent since 2009 and far surpasses monitoring under President Bush.
"Offshore drilling permits are being issued at less than half the rate of the previous administration. The average number of leases issued on public lands is less than half than during President Clinton's term."
The Obama administration's energy plan all along was based upon the rise in energy costs in order to force Americans to be "greener." Again in 2008, candidate Obama was perfectly content with soaring energy prices if it meant less greenhouse gas emissions. This is what he said: "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."
Last November, despite strong state bi-partisan and public support, the Obama administration unexpectedly dropped Virginia from the government's most recent leasing plan altogether, declaring a seven-year delay with little explanation.
"ATP's lawsuit provides a revealing glimpse into the capital-intensive oil and gas industry where unfair and illegal actions by a government agency can cost companies (and the U.S. economy) enormous sums of money."
The Department of Energy seems to contradict Salazar's claim. Oil production is at the same level it was in 2009 — and dramatically lower than in 2010 — according to a recent report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
The Fed reduced official interest rates to near zero almost four years ago and has since then bought some $2.3 trillion in securities to boost the economy, taking the central bank deeper into uncharted policy territory.
Now, there is talk the Fed might increase the money printing. Williams charges, "The Fed's primary concern is to keep the banking system afloat, and they're not doing so well with that"... [and] says it is only a matter of time before all the Fed money printing will "trigger a sell-off ... and that will provide the early start of the hyperinflation."
But despite all of the evidence to the contrary, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke continues to insist that prices are very stable right now.
In fact, one of the reasons why he says that more money printing ("quantitative easing") is okay is because we are in a "low inflation" environment at the moment.
Sadly, this is exactly the kind of delusional thinking that led to the horrible crisis in the Weimar Republic back in the 1920s. Quantitative easing did not work for the Weimar Republic, and it is not going to work for us either.
But it will cause the prices of the things that we buy on a regular basis to go up even more.
Osama bin Laden's donations to Øfascist's campaign
In addition, the President has vastly expanded the power of the Administrative State over the American people, while elevating the power of the President over the other two branches of government.
ObamaCare fundamentally changes the relationship between the executive and legislative branches of government. The law creates a 15 member "Independent Payment Advisory Board" [i.e., Death Panel] which is vested with the unilateral power to make and enforce laws, including rationing of health care and imposition of new taxes. As reported by a Cato Policy Analysis, under ObamaCare, the IPAB proposals will have the force of law without the approval of Congress or the signature of the President. Congress may only block its edicts if the House and Senate pass, and the President signs, an alternative that achieves the same budgetary result.
After 2020, the law requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to implement IPAB's "proposals" even if Congress enacts a substitute. Finally, the law gives IPAB and the Secretary "the sole authority to judge their own actions by prohibiting administrative or judicial review of the Secretary's implementation of an IPAB proposal."
The Dodd-Frank bill establishes a new regulatory body, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and gave it vast regulatory authority over consumer financial products and services. However, like the IPAB, it is shielded from Congressional oversight and budget control by being located as a unit inside and funded by the Federal Reserve.
The President has established the precedent of making recess appointments when the Senate is technically in session. And, he has established the power of his office to suspend laws he chooses not to implement, such as current Federal immigration laws, by executive order.
in the 44 months Obama has been in office, the unemployment rate has been below 8% in just two, and it was at or above 9% for 29 months. No president since the Great Depression has produced unemployment rates that high for that long.
Worse, aside from the meager gain in jobs, every other employment indicator is worse today than it was in January 2009....
Listing the rest would require a whole nother postblogblogosphere!
As his son's flag-draped casket was being taken off the plane from Libya.
irst ØLiar willfully and knowingly neglected to take any action to save our heroes in the hours they were under enemy attack, before their selfless sacrifice. Then he and his regime intentionally dishonored them and their families with crudities and lies.
Utterly defeating Baracrook Øbloquy in eleven days is the only way to keep the stain of that dishonor from indelibly attaching itself to our whole nation.
ere you blind, Øblew-it? Why did you miserably fail to step in and save our own ambassador and his three American colleagues when you literally saw them dying right before your eyes? Were their screams that you must have heard over your phone too un-"optimal" to interfere with your beddy-bye time? Was it more important for you to get a good night's sleep before your campaign fundraiser and TV appearance the next day rather than do your flukin' duty and act like a president?
At 3 AM, the phone rang and the surveillance videos were playing in real time, but where were you? Getting your "beauty""eye-candy" sleep?
Don't worry. After November 6, you'll be getting plenty more chances to blissfully enjoy such uninterrupted sleep. Except then it won't have any chance to cause even more needless American deaths, because you'll be out of a "job."
We'll have a new president who'll be putting out the flames you made happen — one who will not rest until he has actually rebuilt our country.
This is a perfect illustration of classic liberal hypocrisy. Obama is a terrible boss where women are concerned. But he expects women to vote for him so long as he mouths support for free birth control and suggests that Romney hates women and wants them barefoot and in the kitchen. The attitude demonstrates a contempt for women and an insult to their intelligence.
If working elsewhere, you're no better off than your sisters stuck behind the Real Enemy of American Women lines.
College tuitions have skyrocketed adding to the burden for women who outnumber men in college today. Four times more men get jobs than women. More women than men have lost their jobs during the past four years.... Hispanic women are the fastest and largest growing poverty group in America. It is a dire fact that 7.5 million women are in severe poverty.
Øfascist's on trial for his crimes against womanity. We the people will render our verdict of Guilty beyond any doubt whatsoever on November 6, and sentence his heinous, malignant political career to death by landsliding crush of our ballots.
That's how much Obama had increased our public debt this past Tax Day.
n January 20, 2009, the beginning of Øfascist's reign of error, our public debt stood at 10.627 Trillion dollars.
On April 15 of this year, normally known as Tax Day, the extremely irresponsible, unpatriotic Spender-in-Chief — by his lonesome — made a 47 percent increase in our public debt happen, when it surpassed 15.622 Trillion dollars.
He did build up that mountainous amount of additional debt.
Not only that, he kept adding more and more and more debt until it now stands at over 16.158 Trillion dollars.
The problem is, is that the way Obama has done it over the last four years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from 10 trillion dollars for the first 43 presidents — number 44 added 6 trillion dollars by his lonesome — so that we now have over 16 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back: 50,000 dollars for every man, woman, and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic.
You are nothing but a lying liar. You have completely disgraced your office and "your" country. Every step of the way, you have massively failed the American people, recklessly endangering all of them. In all of this, you have acted in a manner contrary to your trust as president and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. You continue to be a total embarrassment to all honest and decent people everywhere.
You wouldn't know credibility if it came up and bit you on the butt more brutally than your clearly proven, rabid lack of it already has.
