 Economic Reality vs. Obama's Economic  Fantasy   With the first month of the year 2016 behind us, expectations of economic growth remain one of the top concerns for voters in this year's election cycle. Most presidential candidates have laid out their proposals for addressing the nation's economic woes. Granted, the president of the United States doesn't run the economy, but the ability to influence economic policy is a key characteristic of the presidency, and more often than not, a president's success or failure is attributed to his ability to lead the nation in economic growth.
          Economic growth has been scarce during the last seven years. Barack nObama may boast otherwise, but claims that aren't backed up by evidence are completely meaningless. For starters, the advance report for U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) — the value of everything a nation produces — shows that the economy expanded at a paltry 0.7% for the last quarter (Q4) of 2015. That is a significant drop from the 2% growth in the fall and 3.9% last spring.
          Overall, the U.S. economy grew only 2.4% for 2015, which matches economic growth from 2014. Many factors contribute to the sluggish growth. In Q4 for instance, consumers spent less, mainly on higher ticket items such as cars; exports fell 2.5%; and businesses spent less on new equipment.
          Yet some economists contend that the economy is healthy and well on its way to fully recovering. Consumers actually spent more money in 2015 than in the previous decade, but this is likely attributed to the decline in oil prices and lower energy costs due to more favorable weather conditions overall.
          However, the overall picture of the economy is abysmal when compared with economic growth in the decades following World War II. According to James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute, we have essentially suffered "a lost decade" — at least by American standards. From WWII until 2005, the U.S. economy grew at an average rate of 3.5%. That was the norm, but not in nObama's America.  -The Patriot Post

 Bernie Sanders Represents New Dem Party 
For liberals across the nation, the rest of the primary race will be tainted with the question: Was it Bernie Sanders who actually won the Iowa Democrat Caucus? Early Tuesday morning, the Iowa Democrat Party declared Hilly Clinton the winner by the thinnest of margins. Despite calls from the Sanders campaign to recount, the party's chair said the results are final. But there's plenty to question. At least six precincts reportedly chose their candidate through coin flips, but an accurate number is unknown. Furthermore, Democrat caucus attendees reported ill-trained caucus chairmen, long lines and chaos. And due to the Democrat's method of simply counting people standing in groups, the official tally cannot be recounted.
          One stark fact has emerged from Monday night's chaos: The socialist Sanders, a politician relatively unknown on the national stage a year ago, has become the philosophical leader of the Democrat Party. As columnist David Harsanyi wrote, "a socialist nearly won Iowa" — and that's a big deal. The wild-haired Vermonter captured the imagination and votes of Millennials, as 84% of Iowans under 30 "felt the Bern." As the older Hilly supporters step out of the political process, the Democrat Party will embrace full-on socialism.
          Columnist Peggy Noonan hypothesized this is because of Millennials' experience with the U.S. economy. "If you are 20 or 30 you probably see capitalism in terms of two dramatic themes," Noonan wrote. "The first was the crash of '08, in which heedless, irresponsible operators in business and government kited the system and scrammed. The second is income inequality. Why are some people richer than the richest kings and so many poor as serfs? Is that what capitalism gives you? Then maybe we should rethink this!"
          Unless the message of Liberty is communicated in a persuasive manner, Millennials appear poised to repeat the mistakes of the last century. "Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess," Margaret Thatcher said in 2000. "They always run out of other people's money."  -The Patriot Post

 $19 Trillion and Counting 
When Barack nObama took office, the national debt stood at about $10.6 trillion. He called the spendthrift Bush administration "unpatriotic" for running up the tab. But nObama's on pace to nearly double the debt during his tenure in office. "On Monday the U.S. national debt hit a new record: $19,012,827,698,418,"reports The Daily Signal. "This is the first time the national debt has ever exceeded $19 trillion. That's more than $58,000 for each person that lives in the U.S. today (including children)." Major entitlements like Medicare and nObamaCare are going to put that increase ever more on autopilot.
          nObama and the Democrats in particular, with some aiding and abetting from Republicans, used the 2008 fiscal crisis to expand not the economy but government. Last year, Congress effectively suspended the debt ceiling — not that it was doing much good. Presidents and Congresses of both parties happily spend whatever they want when in power, raising the debt ceiling whenever they reach it based on phony fears of default. And the reason is simple: Most Americans don't actually want smaller government if it means cutting their own favorite spending. Politicians in Washington didn't sell out the American people. They heard exactly what the people were saying. Until and unless that really changes, U.S. debt will continue to grow at a tremendous rate. -The Patriot Post

The increasing unaffordability of Affordable Health Care
Sharyl Attkisson

.
{sharylattkisson.com} ~ New evidence that forcing people to buy health insurance doesn’t mean they will get health care. In fact, sometimes, the result is the opposite... Millions of Americans gained health insurance under nObamacare. But for millions more, their insurance costs much more and covers less. Preventive services may not be covered, after all, depending on the doctor you see. That free birth control? Not so fast…you pay full price if your prescription isn’t one the insurance company approves, even if your doctor certifies it’s a medically necessary formulation. Covered services? First, you have to meet a hefty deductible. The result, for millions, is they have to pay the rising cost of their premiums and the rising deductibles before their health care is covered in any meaningful way. It can easily mean that families spend tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket before getting a significant benefit. For many, that’s unaffordable health care. It’s causing an untold number to avoid getting medical care.

{constitutionrising.com} ~ There’s something unseen, a hidden mental disability that is responsible for changing what would otherwise be typical, rational and normal Americans and other Westerners into self-destructive liberals... What’s most distressing is that, as their ranks are steadily increasing, they are not satisfied with merely allowing themselves to be manipulated into political tools of self-loathing and inflicting damage upon themselves. Liberals are compelled to take the rest of us down the drain with them. Watching the expressions on the faces of Hilly Clinton and the zombies in her audience is like looking at a group of participants in some kind of sick science experiment in which hallucinogenic drugs or other methods of mind control are used to satisfy some sick curiosity. It’s something along the lines of “I wonder what they’ll do if we give em a dose of this and double the electric shock levels?” Both Hilly and Bill Clinton’s default mouth position when appearing before their adoring public involves the combination of a half-smile, open-mouthed, dry-drool grin combined with a full halfwit gaze. Clinton displays it as she responds in faux-amazement that someone might have come up with a position in the US government by which nObama could continue his maniacal destruction.

The FBI is Closing in on Hillary Clinton as

"Put Lives at Risk"!

{eaglerising.com} ~ Over the last few days the Clinton email scandal has grown uglier and more dangerous, not just for the nObama administration, but for the United States as well... Last week, we learned that Clinton had left deeply secret information unprotected, perhaps even endangering the lives of American operatives. Now, we’ve discovered that at least 22 of Clinton’s emails were so secret that the State Department still can’t release them even the redacted versions are still too classified for general consumption! However, the scandal may soon be spreading even further as the latest revelations implicate Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry in similar lawlessness and prove that President nObama has been lying to us for years! Let’s start with President nObama’s lie about Hilly’s private email server. Remember when he said this: So, he didn’t know huh? That’s interesting because the latest data dump proves that the President and Secretary Clinton had emailed each other on at least 18 separate occasions. The White House does not deny that the correspondence took place, but they are also arguing that nObama had no idea that the server being used was of private origin despite the obviously non-governmental email address. The White House is also implying though not guaranteeing that these 18 instances are the only times that the two had any email contact. “Of the 55,000 pages of traffic that was handed over by former Secretary Clinton to us for us to go through for release through FOIA, we have found these 18, and I do not expect that there will be more,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said late last week.        http://eaglerising.com/29516/the-fbi-is-closing-in-on-hillary-clint...

New Clinton Email: Top Aide Cited Classification
Laws to Hit GOP Leader

{breitbart.com} ~ Hilly Clinton’s close associate, Sidney Blumenthal, told her that former Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) might have committed a felony violation of the Espionage Act by disclosing classified information... according to email correspondence recently released by the State Department. That’s another problem for Clinton’s team, because it shows they were aware of the laws governing the handling of classified information, even as they were transferring secret data from a closed government network into her home-brew, unprotected email network. The email was uncovered by watchdog group Judicial Watch, which is still plugging away at a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit pertaining to Clinton’s emails and the Benghazi attack.
Clinton Voter Fraud Live on C-SPAN?

{truthrevolt.org} ~ While C-SPAN cameras were rolling at the Polk County, Iowa Democratic caucus Monday night, voter fraud may have been caught live on-air... The clip was posted anonymously to the C-SPAN website and a Reddit user described the scene. Keep in mind this is a Reddit page in support of Bernie Sanders): FIRST VOTE: 215 Sanders 210 Clinton 26 O'Malley 8 Undecided 459 TOTAL. After this, the groups realign and another count was conducted. Sanders's group leads performed a FULL recount of all the supporters in his group. The Clinton team only added the new supporters gained to her original number from the first round of voting. I did not see another recount of the Clinton supporters taking place. It would have been very hard to miss that activity. In the video, a red-shirted Sanders supporter can be seen taking a physical recount. But when it comes to the Clinton camp, the precinct chair in blue, Liz Buck, simply adds the new voters to the old total without a physical recount. Yet, suddenly the math doesn't add up. So, Buck suggests, "Well, somebody must have left." Caucus chair Drew Gentsch agreed and decided, without conducting a recount, that it was three people that must have left.        http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/clinton-voter-fraud-live-c-span

{pamelageller.com} ~ No memorial for the young girl murdered by Muslim migrants, so as not to offend savages... It’s the same vicious cowardice and submission we saw after the Garland jihad attacks on our free speech conference. The council said that the decision to ban was to secure the wellbeing of the “children” — the same “children” who murdered Alexandra, who are raping senior citizens and rampaging through Europe. Migrant centre banned from holding memorial to Swedish social worker ‘stabbed to death by Somali boy, 15’ in case it upsets refugee children.

{news.usni.org} ~ A little publicized Pentagon office tasked with tweaking existing U.S. military capabilities for new roles and missions is a key player in the Department of Defense effort to stay ahead of Russian and Chinese weapon programs... “Russia and China are developing weapons and ways of war that seek to achieve their objectives rapidly, before they hope we can respond. Because of this, and because of their actions to date – from Ukraine to the South China Sea – DoD has elevated their importance in our defense planning and budgeting,” Secretary of State Ash Carter said in a speech on Tuesday previewing Fiscal Year 2017 budget. In the speech Carter singled out the work of the Strategic Capabilities Office to “confound potential opponents” and held up the SCO (pronounced SkOh) as a key component of future U.S. military technology development.

Your Tax Dollars Will Fund the Next 
Global Bailout

{dailysignal.com} ~ The Financial Times reports that officials “from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank are heading to Azerbaijan to discuss a possible $4 billion emergency loan package in what risks becoming the first of a series of bailouts stemming from” tumbling world oil prices... Not surprisingly, other corrupt, oil-cursed countries have caught the whiff of “free” money and are getting in line to seek their own IMF bailouts. They include Iraq, Ecuador, and economic basket case Venezuela, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Bloomberg reports an IMF forecast of inflation hitting 720 percent in Venezuela in 2016. Actually, that’s not inflation—that’s verging on hyperinflation. Where did all that new IMF cash come from? From U.S. taxpayers, of course.

America's 'Last Chance'
 Phyllis Schlafly
.
.
{townhall.com} ~ On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, where the first ballots for the next president are cast, Senator Jeff Sessions, R., AL, who has not endorsed a candidate, gave a round of interviews declaring that 2016 "is the last chance for the American people to take back control of their government."
.
"This election is different because we have pell-mell erosion of law, the constitutional order, where President nObama has pushed an agenda that eviscerates the immigration legal system, and pushed this trade agreement that will commence decades of transferring American economic power to an ever-expanding international commission. It's just not going to stop."
.
"This is the way the European Union began," he added. Daily news reports are now vividly describing how the EU is disintegrating, making Americans mighty glad we never joined any proposed North American Union.
.
Europe has been in an uproar for months over Germany's decision to admit 1.1 million refugees, mostly young men of fighting age from war-torn countries, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel has finally started to backtrack from that reckless decision. Merkel announced that refugees will be sent back home after the war is over in their homeland, and she even suggested that border guards should shoot at migrants who try to enter Germany illegally.
.
In Britain, meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron has been trying to get permission from the Eurocrats to impose a four-year waiting period for the most generous welfare benefits, in order to discourage new immigrants from other EU countries. A spokesman for the grassroots organization called Leave. EU points out that even if Cameron's proposal were approved, "we are not even asking for an end to the supremacy of EU law over national law, genuine control over migration or independent representation on global bodies and the power to make our own trade deals."
.
Our nation's sovereignty depends on control of both immigration and trade, and that's why Senator Sessions urges voters to choose a candidate who promises to kill the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal with nearly a dozen Asian nations. A new study by economists at Tufts University predicts that U.S. ratification of the TPP would shrink our GDP by $100 billion, leading to a loss of 448,000 American jobs.
.
"This election will be the last chance for Americans to get control of their government," said Sessions, after 30 years of promises to end illegal immigration. "I think this election is the big one.
.
"To win, Republicans need to demonstrate that they care about the average person who goes to work every day," he added. Average Americans are tired of paying billions in welfare handouts to immigrants who are undermining U.S. wages.
.
"People should have total confidence and a clear commitment on those issues. If they don't, then they don't have my vote," he said.
.
The importance of Sessions' statements on key issues in the presidential race -- especially immigration and TPP -- should not be underestimated. Sessions warned that, if the next president approves the TPP, it would put our trade with Asia under a powerful international commission on which the United States would have just one vote.
.
Our immigration policy has been anti-American, decade after decade, and the voters need to know that 2016 might be our last chance to elect a president who can reduce this tide of illegals crossing our borders. The interests of working Americans, their jobs, their wages, their hospitals, their schools, and the public safety, must "be put first," Sessions urged.
.
"We need a president with the credibility to tell the world that the time of illegality is over. Do not come to this country unlawfully," he said.
.
"Make sure -- because this could be the last chance -- that the vote you cast is for a person who is going to, with courage and steadfastness, fix the immigration system that's so broken and is adversely impacting Americans' safety, their wages, their hospitals, their schools, those kind of things," Sessions said during an appearance on the Howie Carr radio program, which is heard throughout New Hampshire.
.
"And also we need to know with absolute clarity: are you for or against the Trans-Pacific Partnership," he added. "It must not pass."
.
"This may be the last opportunity the American people will have to have their will imposed and create a lawful immigration system that serves the national interest," Sessions emphasized. "I know we have to talk about the economy, national security, and the military, and the budget, and it's hard to know who's got the best idea," Sessions said.
.
"But on these two issues immigration and TPP, I think the voters should say, 'If you're not going to be right on those, I'm not voting for you in this primary and I'm not going to vote for you as president.' I really think it's that important."

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
