Weekly Address: Congress Must Compromise to Stop the Impact of the Sequester

In his weekly address, President Obama tells the American people that a series of harmful budget cuts—called the sequester—have taken effect because Congress failed to act. Because Republicans in Congress refused to compromise to close tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans, hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose their jobs or see their paycheck reduced, and middle class families will be hurt. Congress must join the President now to replace these cuts with a balanced approach that reduces our deficit while also making smart investments in areas that help our economy grow.

We The People have a fraud and usurper sitting in the White House going by the name of barack hussin obama using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service registration card to prove he is a legal sitting US President .

We The People demand the US Congress honor their oath to the US Constitution and remove this fraud and usurper barack hussein obama from office under Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution .

Let me get this straight.  Our Great President wants us to turn over all of our money we make and his goal is 100% taxes.  Then we can go downtown and get food stamps, and free benefits and live off of the government.  Heck, we don't need our jobs anymore.  Let all of us listen to this great man and let us all quit our jobs.  Don't support the economy.  Don't support anything.  just sit on your you know what and live off of Uncle Sam.  Isn't that what the men and women who voted for this great man did.  We need to get on board.   Golly, what a great man.  Repeat after me: I am a single individual with no rights and do not have an identity.  I will listen to the Great god Obama.  Obama is my savior.   I am a drone.  Here, Please take a sip of the Kool Aid.

So the president agrees to allow budget cuts (i.e. sequester) as a "deal" to allow increase in taxes(fical cliff) and now budget cuts are BAD. This guy is amazing !!

We are in a civil war now. We're as split a I have ever seen this country and I've been around for a while. 

The language has changed to to identify what I consider patriots as terrorists.

Everything that was moral is not and everything that was immoral or amoral is now being presented and forced as moral.

We have no representation for for traditional America or the Constitution as we have known them.

We no longer have a government for and by the people. Instead we are being dictated to.

Our voting process has become contaminated beyond recognition.

Rule of law doesn't exist. And what has replaced it is selectively applied.

The regime is sending arms to our enemies.

Our natural resourced are off limits to us and dependency is fed.

Our currency is loosing its value by design.

We are being stripped of our sovereignty.

Parental rights are being usurped as certainly as our government structure has.

And these are things I can think of before my first cup of coffee. I should probably quit while I am ahead.

One of the worse observations I've made is that both our population and our government are infiltrated by what were once considered threatening entities.  We may be in the minority here folks.

I think I'll quit and have that cup of coffee.

Coming from the bigest lier of all time OBAMA the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SOCIALIST DEM. Dictator of AMERICA.

Everything that the White House Thugs, it's Crony Departments, and that George Soros Lacky obama does and says that is 'Allowed' (which includes fake leaks) to come out publicly, is nothing more than a Distraction, Diversion, or otherwise known as a 'Smoke Screen' to hide their 'End Game', which is the subversion of America and the total destruction of our constitutional rights. People need to quit paying attention to the little petty things and start looking at the Big Picture! Dee's posting on "Taming the Monster" by Wild Bill is the perfect idea for people to get behind and start a grass roots movement in their individual States. Let's get the momentum going to take back our rights from the Monster and starve it to death one state at a time!

ONE NATION UNDER GOD

ALERT ALERT

 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
