In 2009, Obama stole money from retired teachers and police officers in Indiana

During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana.

Even before adopting net neutrality, here are 26 actions by which the Obama administration has already proven itself to be incompetent when it comes to the internet

The fact that Obama refuses to allow the public to see his 332 page net neutrality plan until after its implementation is voted on is, by itself, reason enough for me to oppose the plan.

I would think that even the biggest supporters of net neutrality would be curious as to why Obama won’t let people see his plan until after it is implemented.

However, in addition to that, here are 26 examples of actions by the Obama administration which prove that it is incompetent when it comes to the internet. (more…)

The “most transparent administration in history” says it won’t let the public see its 332 page net neutrality plan until after the FCC votes on its implementation

The Obama administration has just said that it won’t let the public see its 332 page proposal for net neutrality until after the FCC votes on its implementation.

Which reminds me of this Nancy Pelosi gem regarding Obamacare:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoE1R-xH5To

Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Paisaid has seen the proposal. Paisaid said Obama’s net neutrality plan was 332 pages long, and that:

“It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works…”

“The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband… These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.”

“The plan saddles small, independent businesses and entrepreneurs with heavy-handed regulations that will push them out of the market… As a result, Americans will have fewer broadband choices. This is no accident. Title II was designed to regulate a monopoly. If we impose that model on a vibrant broadband marketplace, a highly regulated monopoly is what we’ll get.”

The Daily Caller reported:

In his initial cursory overview of the plan, the commissioner said it would hinder broadband investment, slow network speed and expansion, limit outgrowth to rural areas of the country and reduce Internet service provider (ISP) competition.

I don’t know if Paisaid’s comments about the proposal are true or not. But I do know the public should get to see the plan before it’s implemented, and I wonder why Obama is so afraid to let that happen.

Ignoring history, Obama falsely claims that raising the capital gains tax yields higher tax revenue

The Washington Times recently reported:

Obama’s State of the Union speech to include $320B tax hike proposal

President wants capital gains rate, bank fees raised

President Obama will propose $320 billion in higher taxes in his State of the Union address, mostly by raising the rate on capital gains and closing tax loopholes for wealthier families, senior administration officials said Saturday.

Previewing Mr. Obama’s State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night, aides said the president will propose raising the top tax rate on capital gains to 28 percent, from the current 23.8 percent (20 percent, plus a 3.8 percent tax on unearned income to fund Obamacare) for individual taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $200,000 or more.

Obama is ignoring the fact that in the real world, raising the capital gains tax in the past has resulted in lower tax revenues.

Video/audio: Machete wielding intruder gets shot by homeowner. Obama thinks this act of self defense should be illegal.

The Idaho State Journal News recently put up this video at YouTube. A guy with a machete breaks down an apartment door (which looks like it’s made of cardboard), despite the fact that the guy in the apartment had already warned the intruder that he had a gun. After the intruder enters the apartment with a machete, the homeowner shoots him three times. The Idaho State Journal News then blanks the video, but you can hear the intruder screaming in agony for a long time, the homeowner telling him to stay down because he doesn’t want to have to kill him, and the homeowner saying that he called an ambulance.

When Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from machete wielding scumbags such as this. Many of the people who voted for Obama for President agree with his anti-self defense position. On January 10, 2013, President Obama signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives, which makes Obama a gun control hypocrite.

The guy who got shot was a white guy, so Obama won’t be defending him or launching a federal investigation, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton won’t be defending him, and there won’t be any protests, looting, smashing of windows, burning down of businesses, or blocking of traffic in response to this incident.

Here’s the video from the The Idaho State Journal News channel at YouTube, and an article from the The Idaho State Journal News:

Pocatello man who was shot while breaking into neighbors’ apartments to threaten them with machete is sentenced

January 15, 2015

POCATELLO — Twain Thomas was sentenced to a prison term of five years fixed and 10 years indeterminate for attempted murder and five years fixed for aggravated assault Thursday.

Thomas was also ordered to pay $1,200.

Before imposing the sentence, Sixth District Judge Robert Naftz said he believed there was hope for Thomas, who pleaded guilty to the charges in November as part of a plea agreement.

“I have to impose a sentence that protects society and includes punishment,” Naftz said.

Last February, Thomas broke into the apartments of two of his neighbors on 200 block of South Garfield in Pocatello wielding a large machete. He was shot three times in the chest by James Cvengros after Thomas battered his way through the door.

Cvengros video recorded the event and the court got a chance to view the footage Thursday.

After Thomas busted out windows in his own upstairs apartment, he then broke into another second floor apartment. The audio on the video clip captures that resident screaming at Thomas to get out. The woman managed to chase Thomas out of the apartment and that’s when he went downstairs to the Cvengros apartment.

As he beat on the door, Cvengros told Thomas to leave. As Thomas broke through the door, Cvengros warned him that he was armed, but Thomas kept coming. That’s when Cvengros fired three shots in rapid succession.

The video view ends at that point, but the audio continues, and Thomas can be heard moaning as Cvengros tells him to stay down.

Cvengros said it was the second time that Thomas had broken into his apartment. The suspect kicked the door in months earlier because the music was too loud. That incident led Cvengros to buy the weapon he used to stop Thomas.

Thomas apologized to his victims Thursday.

“I know they were terrified,” Thomas said.

Dave Martinez represented Thomas in the case and he noted that the suspect survived a violent childhood and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. Thomas also sustained traumatic brain injury from a vehicle accident as a teenager.

Martinez added that Thomas, a military veteran, had no previous history of violence.

Bannock County Deputy Zach Parris said the crime was of particular concern as it affected two households, and he said that Thomas would also be able to seek help in prison.

Martinez had asked that the court retain jurisdiction and sentence Thomas to psychiatric facility for treatment.

Following the hearing, Cvengros said he would have liked to see Thomas sentenced to a longer prison term for threatening his life.

Cvengros’s girlfriend, Kaila Gerhart, was at the residence when the shooting occurred. And she said that she still has nightmares about the incident.

“The trial kind of brought it all back up again,” Gerhart said.

Obama wants to change the tax code to punish families with a stay-at-home parent

The Hill recently reported:

… the president is proposing a new $500 second-earner credit to help cover the additional costs, such as commuting, of families with two working spouses. That plan is expected to benefit 24 million couples, the White House said.

Another proposal would streamline and expand childcare tax benefits, providing up to $3,000 per child under age 5, helping 5.1 million families that make up to $210,000 a year and cover costs for 6.7 million children.

A real tax cut means that marginal tax rates are cut, and people can spend that money however they want.

But that’s not what Obama wants.

Instead, Obama wants to use the tax code to reward people who put their children into day care, and to punish families with a stay-at-home parent.

If you want this tax cut, you will have to behave in the specific way that Obama wants you to behave.

If your lifestyle is different than the way that Obama wants you to live, then you will not get a tax cut.

Islamic terrorism, gun control, and Barack Obama – three enemies of freedom

Here’s an example of political correctness gone way too far.

In the recent Islamic terrorist attack in France where 12 people were shot and killed by Islamic terrorists with with AK-47s, the police who were sent to stop them were unable to do so, because they were unarmed.

France’s extensive gun control laws did not stop the bad guys from getting guns. But the country’s extreme anti-gun mentality did prevent the police – the police of all people – from having guns.

Emails prove that the Obama administration pressured CBS News to stop airing reports by Sharyl Attkisson

On October 3, 2011, CBS News aired a story by Sharyl Attkisson which showed that Attorney General Eric Holder had lied under oath regarding Fast and Furious. Here is that report:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JaDEShZIvQ

On October 4, 2011, Holder’s top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, wrote the following in an email to White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz:

“I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer. She’s out of control.”

Schultz responded with an email that said:

“Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG.”

Afterward, CBS made it harder and harder for Attkisson to do reports on Fast and Furious, and she eventually quit her job at CBS.

Attention Dr. Blake Armstrong of South Texas College: here’s why your comparison of the Tea Party to the Nazis is inaccurate

The Blaze recently reported:

Prof. Tells Students Not to ‘Tell Anybody’ About His Vexed Tea Party ‘Analogy’ — He Didn’t Know It Was Already Caught on Video

Dec. 8, 2014

A psychology professor at South Texas College in Weslaco, Texas, was seemingly caught on video last month comparing the tea party to the Nazis of the 1930s in Germany.

He then told his students not to “tell anybody” about his remarks — but one of his students had already started filming after he allegedly called Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a “bastard” for using the name “Cruz” to win his election.

“In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis — people were kind of tired of them. They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now. They’ve won seats — they’re like the tea party! That’s such a good example,” the professor said. “Don’t tell anybody I said that though.”

He continued: “But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there. That eventually people realized, ‘Oh, these Nazis are a bunch of nuts,’ ‘These tea party people are a bunch of nuts.’ I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy.”

The student responsible for recording the comments, who asked to remain anonymous, identified the professor as Dr. Blake Armstrong. The video was recorded during a Nov. 17 class and uploaded on YouTube the same day.

The student told TheBlaze he recorded his professor because he feels strongly that “it’s wrong for him to use his position as a soap box for his beliefs, especially with young, impressionable students.”

“This semester, [Dr. Armstrong] insulted Republicans about three times before this video was recorded,” he added. On this day, he called Sen. Ted Cruz a bastard for using the last name Cruz to win his election. I didn’t know exactly what he meant, but I decided to start recording.”

While the student said Armstrong’s Nazi-tea party reference is the most “severe” rhetoric he’s heard in the class so far, he argued “it’s very easy to see that he has a vendetta against Republicans and religion with an emphasis on Christianity.”

Here’s the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX-U3jj39_I

Dr. Armstrong, if you are reading this, I would like to explain why your comparison of the Tea Party to the Nazi is inaccurate.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Germany was considered to be one of the most civilized and most advanced countries in the world. At the time, no one thought that a genocide could have been possible in Germany.

But then in 1938, Adolf Hitler confiscated all the guns from the Jews.

Hitler explained his action with the following:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”

By comparison, the Tea Party believes that everyone – including Jews – has the right to own guns.

The Nazis supported bigger government in every area of life. They supported wage and price controls. They supported having the government tell businesses what to produce and how much of it to produce. They supported strong federal involvement in health care and education.

By comparison, the Tea Party is against all of these things.

In 2004, when Barack Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers. Hitler agreed with Obama on this issue, at least as far as Jews are concerned. Dr. Armstrong, did you vote for Obama when he ran for President?

Here are some other things that Obama has done, which Hitler would have been proud of, and which the Tea Party is against:

* Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process.

* In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act.

* In December 2011, Obama signed a bill that gave the U.S. government the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.

* President Obama has defended warrantless wiretapping.

* In Germany in 1938, Adolf Hitler outlawed homeschooling. He said “Give me a child when he’s seven and he’s mine forever.” Hitler’s ban on homeschooling is still in effect today. In 2006, Katharina Plett was arrested for homeschooling her own children. Her husband and their children fled the country. In 2008, Juergen and Rosemary Dudek were sentenced to 90 days in jail for homeschooling their own children. Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their homeschooled children fled Germany after the police showed up at their house to enforce Germany’s ban on homeschooling. They came to the United States in 2010 and were granted political asylum, which gave them legal permission to live in the U.S. as political refugees  However, in March 2013, the Obama administration argued in federal court in favor of deporting them and sending them back to Germany. This means that Obama does not consider them to be political refugees, and that he does not consider Germany’s policy of jailing homeschooling parents to be a form of persecution.

Dr. Armstrong, the Nazis supported bigger government. The Tea Party supports smaller government. The two philosophies have absolutely nothing in common.

For the record, in the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I voted for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.

Dr. Armstrong, did you vote for Obama? If so, besides having done the horrible things that I mentioned above, I also would like to draw your attention to these hundreds of other horrible things that Obama has done.

Anyway, if there is any one thing that I hope you get out of this, it is the following: the Nazis supported BIGGER government – the Tea Party supports SMALLER government.

Google billionaires request $539 million federal bailout after spending $1.6 billion of “stimulus” funding on failed solar power project

Ivanpah is a solar power company owned by Google, BrightSource Energy, and NRG.

In April 2011, as part of Obama’s “stimulus,” Obama gave Ivanpah a $1.6 billion loan guarantee to build a solar power plant.

In November 2014, when the plant was up and running, Associated Press reported that it was producing only “about half of its expected annual output.” The California Energy Commission blamed this failure on “clouds, jet contrails, and weather.”

In November 2014, Ivanpah asked Obama for a $539 million bailout.

Google is owned by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. At the time they requested this $539 million bailout, Page was the 19th richest person in the world, with assets of $30.4 billion, and Brin was the 20th richest person in the world, with assets of $30 billion.

Summary of Obama’s IRS scandal, as of November 22, 2014

In May 2013, the Washington Post reported that the IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional reviews. Organizations with the words “tea party” or “patriot” were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members.

306 reasons why it’s OK to laugh at anyone who thought Obamacare was a good idea

I’ve updated my list of Obamacare criticisms. The complete list can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/obamacare-59/

These are the new entries:

301) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said Obamacare was passed due to “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter”

In October 2013, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said:

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass….Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

302) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber lied to the New York Times in a disclosure contract that he signed

In January 2010, the New York Times wrote:

Corrections

January 9, 2010

Editors’ note

On July 12, the Op-Ed page published an article by Jonathan Gruber, a professor of economics at M.I.T., on health insurance and taxation. On Friday, Professor Gruber confirmed reports that he is a paid consultant to the Department of Health and Human Services, and that his contract was in effect when he published his article. The article did not disclose this relationship to readers.

Like other writers for the Op-Ed page, Professor Gruber signed a contract that obligated him to tell editors of such a relationship. Had editors been aware of Professor Gruber’s government ties, the Op-Ed page would have insisted on disclosure or not published his article.

303) When M.I.T. economics professor Jonathan Gruber wrote a pro-Obamacare opinion piece for the Washington Post, he did not disclose the fact that the Obama administration had paid him $392,000 to help write Obamacare

In December 2009, when M.I.T. economics professor Jonathan Gruber wrote a pro-Obamacare opinion piece for the Washington Post, he did not disclose the fact that the Obama administration had paid him $392,000 to help write Obamacare.

304) Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie about Obamacare’s Cadillac tax

In July 2009, Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie about Obamacare’s Cadillac tax.

305) Obama administration falsely said that Obama had never worked with Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber at the White House

Although the Obama administration said that Obama had never worked with Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber at the White House, White House visitor logs show that Obama and Gruber were together in the same room in the White House for nearly four hours on July 20, 2009.

306) Nancy Pelosi gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels in her own Congressional district

Although Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California) voted for Obamacare, in April 2011, she gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels in her own Congressional district.
