Hillary to raise taxes on Middle class.
Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, an "Exit Tax" and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign's own figures.
It's no wonder that when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a "rock-solid" promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a "goal." In other words, she's going to raise taxes on middle income Americans.
Hillary's formally proposed $1 trillion net tax increase consists of the following:
Income Tax Increase – $350 Billion: Clinton has proposed a $350 billion income tax hike in the form of a 28 percent cap on itemized deductions.
Business Tax Increase -- $275 Billion: Clinton has called for a tax hike of at least $275 billion through undefined business tax reform, as described in a Clinton campaign document.
"Fairness" Tax Increase -- $400 Billion: According to her published plan, Clinton has called for a tax increase of "between $400 and $500 billion" by "restoring basic fairness to our tax code." These proposals include a "fair share surcharge," the taxing of carried interest capital gains as ordinary income, and a hike in the Death Tax.
But there are even more Clinton tax hike proposals not included in the tally above. Her campaign has failed to release specific details for many of her proposals. The true Clinton net tax hike figure is likely much higher than $1 trillion.
Capital Gains Tax Increase -- Clinton has proposed an increase in the capital gains tax to counter the "tyranny of today's earnings report." Her plan calls for a byzantine capital gains tax regime with six rates. Her campaign has not put a dollar amount on this tax increase.
Tax on Stock Trading -- Clinton has proposed a new tax on stock trading. Costs associated with this new tax will be borne by millions of American families that hold 401(k)s, IRAs and other savings accounts. The tax increase would only further burden markets by discouraging trading and investment. Again, no dollar figure for this tax hike has been released by the Clinton campaign.
"Exit Tax" – Rather than reduce the extremely high, uncompetitive corporate tax rate, Clinton has proposed a series of measures aimed at inversions including an "exit tax" on income earned overseas. The term "exit tax" is used by the campaign itself. Her campaign document describing this proposal says it will raise $80 billion in tax revenue, but claims some of the $80 billion will be plowed into tax relief. How much? The campaign doesn't say.
This proposal completely fails to address the underlying causes behind inversions: The U.S. 39% corporate tax rate (35% federal rate plus an average state rate of 4%) and our "worldwide" system of taxation, which imposes tax on all American earnings worldwide. The average corporate rate in the developed world is 25%. Thirty-one of thirty-four developed countries have cut their corporate tax rate since 2000. The U.S. has not. Hillary's plan moves in the wrong direction.

Mexico WANTS to build a wall
It turns out that Donald Trump's proposed border wall is not such a bad idea after all. Though Mexico's current and former Presidents have both lambasted Trump for implying that a wall would curb immigration, it turns out that Mexicans like the idea.
There is one small caveat, however. Mexicans don't want to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, but rather, they want to stem the tide of immigration into their own country by building the wall on their southern border with central America:
One of the largest newspapers along Mexico's border with Texas is calling for a border wall with Central America, similar to the one being promoted by Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump.
The editorial board of El Mañana, one of the largest newspapers in the border state of Tamaulipas, penned a piece called "Yes to the Border Wall … but in Mexico's South." The piece praises the idea of border wall, not on the border with Mexico, but on the border with Central America.
"Along the Mexican border peace and quiet came to an end, Central Americans played a large influence," El Mañana's piece claimed.
The Mexican border newspaper provides a controversial view on the Border Wall; which is one of the main topics in Trump's campaign.
"Mexico's southeast has two borders; one with Guatemala and one with Belize, that do not provide any benefit, but on the contrary only problems are brought by these crossing points that are being used for the new invasion. The one use by Central American's looking for a way into the United States. " El Mañana's editorial board wrote.
One of the issues mentioned in the editorial piece points not only to the hordes of Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans that flock to Reynosa in an effort to get to the U.S., but also to the large number of Central Americans that are left in Mexico after deportation.
Full report at Breitbart
Eastern European countries are expanding their border fence networks to keep middle east refugees from crossing into their countries, a strategy that has cut illegal immigration by over 90% in those nations.
President Obama made the one in front of the White House even higher and more elaborate.
Prisons tend to build them, too.
The Mexicans want one.
And now even the Democratic National Committee has decided that fences work to keep out the riff-raff. They've built an 8 foot high, 4 mile long fence around their convention.
It seems like these days everyone wants to build a wall.
But according to former DHS chief Janet Napolitano, walls don't work to keep people out and are ineffective immigration policy, so we're not sure what all the fuss is about.

Trump craigslist ad for hot assistant
WikiLeaks Emails: DNC Approved Fake Trump Ads For 'Hot Women' Comfortable With 'Gropes Under The Meeting Table'
by ALLUM BOKHARI
22 Jul 2016
The WikiLeaks cache of 19,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee has only been online for a couple of hours, and already it's revealing some of the party's dirty tricks.
In an email dated May 18, 2016, Christina Freundlich, Deputy Communications Director at the DNC proposed that the Democrats impersonate the Trump Organization on Craigslist, placing a fake ad for "hot women" aimed at making the Republican candidate look as sexist as possible.
The email, which can be read below, contains the full text of the fake ad. It includes requirements for employees to "not gain weight on the job," to "evaluate other women's hotness," and be comfortable with a range of illegal workplace sexual harassment including allowing the boss to "grope you under the meeting table."
The fake ad closes by calling on interested applicants to send their cover letters to "firstname.lastname@example.org."
On Wed, May 18, 2016 at 7:09 AM -0700, "Freundlich, Christina" <<FreundlichC@dnc.org<mailto:FreundlichC@dnc.org>> wrote: Mark and Luis – digital created a fake craigslist jobs post for women who want to apply to jobs one of Trump's organizations.

After sending a reminder to her superiors, Freundlich's ideas was eventually approved by DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda. His response is copied below.
"Yes it is" responded Freundlich.

REPORT: As President, Donald Trump Could Purge U.S. Government Of Obama Appointees
Reuters published an exclusive report today which suggests that if Trump is elected president, he would take legal steps to purge the federal government of Obama appointees.
A point the media surely misses, is that this idea would be heartily embraced by people who support Trump. In fact, it's one of the keys to Trump's success in this election.
From the report:
Exclusive: Trump could seek new law to purge government of Obama appointees
If he wins the presidency, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would seek to purge the federal government of officials appointed by Democratic President Barack Obama and could ask Congress to pass legislation making it easier to fire public workers, Trump ally, Chris Christie, said on Tuesday.
Christie, who is governor of New Jersey and leads Trump's White House transition team, said the campaign was drawing up a list of federal government employees to fire if Trump defeats Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election.
"As you know from his other career, Donald likes to fire people," Christie told a closed-door meeting with dozens of donors at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, according to an audio recording obtained by Reuters and two participants in the meeting.
Christie was referring to Trump's starring role in the long-running television show "The Apprentice," where his catch-phrase was "You're fired!"
The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
Trump's transition advisers fear that Obama may convert these appointees to civil servants, who have more job security than officials who have been politically appointed. This would allow officials to keep their jobs in a new, possibly Republican, administration, Christie said.
"It's called burrowing," Christie said. "You take them from the political appointee side into the civil service side, in order to try to set up … roadblocks for your successor, kind of like when all the Clinton people took all the Ws off the keyboard when George Bush was coming into the White House."
Read the rest here.
A related topic that the Reuters report doesn't mention, is that since so many of Obama's actions as president have been based on executive orders, the next president could virtually erase much of Obama's legacy.
If and when that happens, the outcry from the left will be a thing to behold.
The post REPORT: As President, Donald Trump Could Purge U.S. Government Of Obama Appointees appeared first on The Gateway Pundit.
Christie Prosecutes Hillary: Lock Her Up!
We must present those facts to you, a jury of her peers, both in this hall and in living rooms around our nation.
Since the Justice Department refuses to allow you to render a verdict, let's present the case now, on the facts, against Hillary Clinton. She was America's chief diplomat. Look around at the violence and danger in our world today every region of the world has been infected with her flawed judgment.
But let me be specific so you can render your verdict. In North Africa, she was the chief engineer of our disastrous overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya.
Libya today after Hillary Clinton's grand strategy? Libya's economy in ruins, death and violence in the streets and ISIS now dominating the country.
Hillary Clinton, as a failure for ruining Libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by ISIS guilty or not guilty? In Nigeria, Hillary Clinton amazingly fought for two years to keep an Al-Qaeda affiliate off the terrorist watch list.
What happened because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self proclaimed champion of women around the world? These terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young girls two years ago.
These schoolgirls are still missing today.
What was the solution from the Obama/Clinton team? A hashtag campaign! Hillary Clinton, as an apologist for an Al-Qaeda affiliate in Nigeria resulting in the capture of innocent young women guilty or not guilty? She fights for the wrong people.
She doesn't fight for us. She doesn't get the real threats America faces. In China, Hillary Clinton praised the Chinese government for buying our debt to finance President Obama's bloated stimulus plan.
So desperate for Chinese cash, she promised to oppose the Buy American provision in the stimulus bill in exchange for the cash to finance his huge expansion of government spending.
Hillary Clinton, putting big government spending financed by the Chinese ahead of jobs for middle class Americans guilty or not guilty? In Syria, she called President Assad a "reformer" and a "different kind of leader".
With 400,000 now dead...think about that.
At the hands of the man Hillary defended.
We must ask this question: Hillary Clinton, as an awful judge of the character of a dictator-butcher in the Middle East guilty or not guilty? In Iran, she led the negotiations that brought about the worst nuclear deal in history.
Let me be clear: America and the world are measurably less safe and less respected because of the Iran deal Hillary helped cut.
Period. After she launched those negotiations, she became the biggest cheerleader for it at the end.
A deal that will lead to a nuclear Iran, an Israel that will be less safe and secure and much more dangerous Middle East.
Hillary Clinton, as an inept negotiator of the worst nuclear arms deal in American history guilty or not guilty? In Russia, she went to the Kremlin on her very first visit and gave them the symbolic reset button.
The button should have read, "delete" she is very good at that because she deleted in four years what it took 40 years to build. The next year, she said our goal was to strengthen Russia.
Strengthen an adversary led by a dictator who dreams of reassembling the old Soviet empire? What a dangerous lack of judgment.
Once again, as a flawed evaluator of dictators and failed strategist who has permitted Russia back in as a major player in the Middle East is Hillary Clinton guilty or not guilty? In Cuba, Hillary Clinton supported concessions to the Castro brothers and got almost nothing in return for ending the embargo.
She supported a deal that didn't even require this murderous regime to return a cop killer, JoAnne Chesimard, to face justice.
Chesimard murdered a New Jersey State Trooper in cold blood, fled to Cuba and lives there to this very day.
How do you live with your own conscience when you reward a domestic terrorist with continued safety and betray the family of fallen police officer waiting for decades for justice for his murder? Hillary Clinton as coddler of the brutal Castro brothers and betrayer of the family of fallen Trooper Werner Foerster guilty or not guilty?
Finally, here at home, in one of her first decisions as Secretary of State, she set up a private e-mail server in her basement in violation of our national security.
Lets face it: Hillary Clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she did about protecting America's secrets.
Then she lied about it over and over again.
She said there was no marked classified information on her server.
The FBI Director said that was untrue.
She said that she did not email any classified information. The FBI Director said that was untrue.
She said all work related emails were sent back to the State Department.
The FBI Director said that was untrue.
As to Hillary Clinton, putting herself ahead of America guilty or not guilty? Hillary Clinton, lying to the American people about her selfish, awful judgment guilty or not guilty? Time after time the facts, and just the facts, lead you to the same verdict both around the world and at home.
In Libya and Nigeria guilty.
In China and Syria guilty.
In Iran and Russia and Cuba guilty.
And here at home on risking America's secrets to keep her own and lying to cover it all up. Guilty. Her focus group tested persona, with no genuineness to be found, is a sham meant to obscure all the facts and leave you able to vote for her. We cannot promote someone to Commander-in-Chief who has made the world a more violent and dangerous place with every bad judgment she has made.
We cannot make the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States someone who has risked America's secrets and lied about this to Congress and the American people.
We didn't disqualify Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States the facts of her life and career disqualifies her. We in this hall agree with all of this.
But I want to talk to all of you at home, in your living rooms. You are the ones who will decide this election. We have an alternative.
We have a man who is unafraid.
We have a man who wants to lead us.
We have a man who understands the frustrations and the aspirations of our fellow citizens.
We have a man who judges people based on their performance regardless of your gender, race, ethnic or religious background. We do not need to settle for less.
We cannot reward incompetence and deceit. We need to demand more than what Hillary Clinton offers for America.
We know exactly what four years of Hillary Clinton will bring: all the failures of the Obama years, but with less charm and more lies. It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her within 10 miles of the White House again.
It is time to come together and make sure that Donald Trump is our next President.
I am proud to be part of this team.
Now let's go win this thing.
Christie Prosecutes Hillary: Lock Her Up!

"We're Not As Divided As We Seem"

‘Silicon Valley’ Writer Sounds Off on Tech Ageism
In 2007, a fresh-faced Mark Zuckerberg famously ruffled feathers among some older colleagues when he suggested that tech companies should not hire people over 30. "Young people are just smarter," the Facebook chief executive, then 22, told a crowd at Stanford University.
Nearly a decade after the public gaffe, some say little has changed in terms of how older workers are perceived in the tech industry. Despite making recent attempts to diversify their workforces through aggressive initiatives to attract more women and minorities, Silicon Valley firms still wear their disproportionately young ranks like a badge of honor, proudly flaunting a youth-focused culture in which 28 is seen as middle age and 35 over the hill.
While workers over 40 are protected by federal civil rights laws in the United States, the plight of older employees so rarely enters into conversations about workplace discrimination in tech that one would be forgiven for not realizing it's an issue at all.
In fact, ageism is very prevalent. Just ask Dan Lyons, a technology journalist and writer for HBO's "Silicon Valley." As notably chronicled in his recent best-selling book "Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble," Lyons lost his longtime position at Newsweek magazine when he was in his 50s and decided to switch gears by taking a marketing fellowship at the software company HubSpot. In his book, published earlier this year, Lyons describes the startup's culture as a frat-like circus filled with Nerf gunfights and hookup dens.
To complement the book, Lyons also wrote a LinkedIn post in which he called out tech industry executives for their defiantly ageist rhetoric, including his old boss at HubSpot, who he said once called gray hair and experience "overrated." The LinkedIn post went viral, and Lyons said it was at that moment that he realized how widespread the problem really is.
"I got this outpouring of emails from people," Lyons told Dice Insights. "I don't mean to toot my own horn—I don't think it's that the article was so good. It's just that there are a s–tload of people out there who experienced this. It was upsetting really."
We spoke with Lyons last week about what it might take for the tech industry to become more welcoming, but don't expect a happy ending: The characteristically cynical author said Silicon Valley still has a long way to go.
Dice: With such an emphasis on youth, people forget that older workers are a protected class. Why do you think there's not more awareness about this issue in the tech industry?
Dan Lyons: I don't think there's any real protection, though. That's the thing. At HubSpot it was like, "We can do whatever we want. We can fire you at will." HubSpot didn't even have an HR department for the first six or seven years it was in business. They didn't really care about that stuff. And let's face it, everybody knows you can't really bring an age-discrimination lawsuit. You'll never win—I don't think.
Dice: It's a hard thing to prove. It's one thing to have a law, but it's another thing to prove that's why you were fired.
Dan Lyons: I recognize that there's a law, but I don't think tech companies feel it at all. Google just got hit with an age discrimination lawsuit. I don't know if it'll go anywhere.
Dice: Is there any remedy to this? Are you hopeful that discussions about this will change the culture?
Dan Lyons: I'm really not. I wish I could say I was. If these guys came to believe that it was in their own self-interest to hire more older workers—if they thought they would make more money with older workers—they would. But I think they've just decided they can make more money with young kids. I wish I felt otherwise, but I don't see any sign of it changing.
Dice: That's pretty grim.
Dan Lyons: I just did a story for Boston magazine about this topic, and I talked to some tech companies trying to manage what they call a multi-generational workforce. I mean, maybe there's a glimmer of hope there. There are definitely bigger companies out there—if you have 50,000 employees, you need people of all ages. But overall in tech, with the venture-funded companies, it's the venture capitalists driving this. And they're driving it based on their own desire to get the biggest return in the shortest time possible.
Dice: Makes sense. If you're investing in a company, you want the best return.
Dan Lyons: And as cheaply as possible. I think it starts with those guys—the investors, what they want and what they push for. I think they've all decided that the optimal return is young kids: Burn them out, get rid of them, replace them.
Dice: There also seems to be a perception that older people are out of touch when it comes to technology, that they don't adapt as quickly. Is that a misconception?
Dan Lyons: I think that there's probably some truth to that. Like all of these things, there's some grain of truth in it. But I think the way it's described, people talk about "digital natives" like they're a different species, like they have some gene. I get that young kids are more comfortable with social media, they're earlier adopters. But I don't think that means a social media manager at a company has to be a young person. Where it gets weird is on the issue of engineers. Can an older engineer who already knows a bunch of languages learn Python? I don't think there's any other field where people say at age 40 you just can't understand this technology anymore.
Dice: If you're in the workforce, you evolve with it. That's how it works.
Dan Lyons: I guess I'm of two minds about it. On the one hand, I kind of feel like I'm better at what I do now than I was when I was 35, but I also get that I'm probably not as "opted-in." I haven't used Snapchat. I don't give a s–t about it.

Every American Male Nightmare POTUS Scenario
Can you say 'Temperament' kiddies?
Secret Service Agent Said 'Good Morning' To Hillary, Check Out Her Nasty Response
During his interview on Monday's Sean Hannity Show, Gary Byrne told a story that "always bothered him the most" about his time with the Clintons--a polite gesture from a fellow secret service agent that was met with an incredibly nasty response from Hillary.
"We had a uniformed division officer who had been on the job a short period of time, nice guy, top of the line type person," Byrne recalled. The officer, a retired Marine who had received a Purple Heart for wounds he had received in Somalia, crossing paths with the first lady while on-duty.
"He was walking down the west colonnade and he said 'Good morning first lady.' And she looked at him and said 'go f*** yourself.'" Needless to say, the officer was stunned by Hillary's response.
Word quickly spread, and it quickly became clear that it wasn't the first time Hillary had cursed off a Secret Service agent. The incident worked its way up the chain of command.
"It's not that it hadn't happened before, it's just that the way it happened to this guy, when it got up the chain of command and the senior agents found out who this guy was, they felt bad about it," Byrne added.
A lot has been made about the "temperament" of Donald Trump. Does this sound like the temperament of a person you would want anywhere near The White House?

Hillary's Huge Libya Disaster | The National Interest
Hillary's Huge Libya Disaster
America has given up in Clinton's wake.
Charles R. Kubic
June 15, 2016
Prior to the February 17, 2011, "Day of Rage," Libya had a national budget surplus of 8.7 percent of GDP in 2010, with oil production at 1.8 million barrels per day, on track to reach its goal of 3 million barrels per day. Currently, oil production has decreased by over 80 percent. Following the revolution, the Libyan economy contracted by an estimated 41.8 percent, with a national deficit of 17.1 percent GDP in 2011.
Before the revolution, Libya was a secure, prospering, secular Islamic country and a critical ally providing intelligence on terrorist activity post–September 11, 2001. Qaddafi was no longer a threat to the United States. Yet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly advocated and succeeded in convincing the administration to support the Libyan rebels with a no-fly zone, intended to prevent a possible humanitarian disaster that turned quickly into all-out war.
Within weeks of the revolution there were two valid cease-fire opportunities, one presented to the Department of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and a second opportunity presented to U.S. Africa Command for direct military commander negotiations to effect Gaddafi's abdication, in which I was personally involved. Both opportunities were rejected and shut down by Secretary Clinton. Internal communications that went public last year revealed that on March 18, 2011, a colonel in JCS wrote, ". . . Due to the UNSCR, Libyan forces sped up ops to get to Benghazi, and will soon cease fire. As expected. Our contact will arrange a face-to-face meeting with Saif, or a skype/video-telecon to open communications if time does not permit. It will have to be with a high level USG official for him to agree. If there will be an ultimatum before any ops, the USG must be in communication with the right leaders and hopefully listen for any answer. A peaceful solution is still possible that keeps Saif on our side without any bloodshed in Benghazi." However, on March 14, 2011 Secretary Clinton had already met with rebel leaders in Paris, including Mahmoud Jibril, number two in the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, and had committed to support their revolution.
Despite valid ceasefire opportunities to prevent "bloodshed in Benghazi" at the onset of hostilities, Secretary Clinton intervened and quickly pushed her foreign policy in support of a revolution led by the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. One of the Libyan Rebel Brigade commanders, Ahmed Abu Khattala, would later be involved in the terrorist attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Articulating her indifference to the chaos brought by war, Secretary Clinton stated on May 18, 2013, to the House Oversight Committee and the American public, "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Secretary Clinton's war actually did make a difference. It led to a very real and very tragic humanitarian disaster. Her bad judgment and failed policy resulted in the arming of terrorists, months of war and tens of thousands of causalities, the murder of the American ambassador and the deaths of three other brave Americans, continued civil war and the collapse of the Libyan economy, and a failed nation-state contributing to a tragic European migrant crisis. Clearly the Libyan disaster tops Secretary Clinton's legacy of failure.
The revolution ended October 23, 2011, and Libya held its first democratic election on July 7, 2012. A second election was held on June 25, 2014. Despite efforts made by peaceful Libyan officials to establish a strong secular nation, radical Islamic elements rejected the election results and used military force to subvert the will of the Libyan people. As a direct consequence of the chaos caused by Secretary Clinton's failed policy, there are now four entities competing for control of Libya: (1) the twice-elected democratic secular parliamentary government forced into exile in Tobruk by Islamist attacks, (2) the unelected radical Islamist-controlled government in Tripoli, (3) the savage ISIS terrorists who control the city of Sirte and (4) the UN-imposed Government of National Accord (GNA) recently placed ashore in abandoned buildings in Tripoli. The UN is attempting, with U.S. and European support, to impose a unity government (the GNA) that will include elements of sharia law in a new constitution. This approach was rejected twice by the Libyan people, who wanted a more secular government that is not founded in sharia.

0bama’s tantrum a striking display of failed leadership
0bama's tantrum a striking display of failed leadership
By Michael Goodwin June 15, 2016
If it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President 0bama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know he's mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.
He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil "partisan rhetoric," by which he means anyone who disagrees with him. It was a striking display of personal anger and pent-up grievances — and a total failure of leadership during a national crisis.
It also, inadvertently, captured why Donald Trump was able to brawl his way to the GOP nomination. All his nice Republican rivals couldn't stir voters because they never knew how to rattle 0bama the way Trump is doing. The president didn't mention Trump yesterday, but the whole speech was nothing but a desperate and incoherent reaction to Trumpism.
As such, it was a huge moment in the general-election campaign, even though it comes before the nominees are formally crowned. For one thing, it showed that 0bama's plan to campaign against Trump as if he is running for his own third term won't be a cakewalk for the president or his legacy.
For another, the 0bama-Trump war means Hillary Clinton could be overshadowed in what was supposed to be her campaign for vindication. Throw in her husband and the stage is going to get crowded with alpha males competing for attention.
0bama's demeanor and tone were far from presidential — tantrums rarely are. Nor was he effective in rallying the nation to his cause. No surprise there. His cause is himself, always and only, and his greatly diminished historic presidency looks especially insignificant next to the bloodshed in Orlando. The iconic redeemer who promised hope and change never seemed so small and hopeless.
America saw Barack 0bama at low tide yesterday, revealed as brimming with fury and bankrupt of ideas and even sympathy for the dead. The man who had an answer for everything and a solution to nothing is now also out of excuses.
Jimmy Carter's infamous "malaise" speech in 1979 was inspirational by comparison. Carter focused on a "crisis of confidence in the future" while Obama scolded the country for losing confidence in him. Carter tried to lift up America, Obama came to put it down.
He meant his attacks to be especially vicious, but the spectacle was more sad than provocative. The president needs a rest from the job as much as we need a new president.
Forty-nine innocent people were gunned down in a gay nightclub by an Islamic terrorist, another 53 lie wounded, yet 0bama feels only his own pain. Public confidence in his effort to combat terrorism on his own peculiar terms while soft-pedaling the links to Islam were among the casualties in the Pulse nightclub. The world knows he's a failure and he can't stand the embarrassment.
So he lashed out at Trump, who dares not only to point out the obvious, but to rip away the veil of euphemism as he lunges for the jugular. Think Low Energy Jeb, Lyin' Ted, Little Marco and Crooked Hillary. They're all nasty and personal, yet ruthlessly accurate.
Now it's 0bama's turn in the crucible. Cosseted by his media water carriers and surrounded by sycophants, he isn't accustomed to dealing with a heavyweight street fighter.
Oh, would he love to run against Mitt Romney again. That way, he would never have to take a real punch.
The ostensible reason for 0bama's speech was an update on Orlando and to assert success against the Islamic State. The real reason was to lecture America about how right he is about everything on terrorism, from how to fight it to how to talk about it, and how Trump is worse than wrong.
At one point, 0bama denounced politicians who tweet and go on cable TV. My first reaction was to wonder whether he meant Trump or Clinton, or both. Of course, when 0bama does those things, it's cool.
Most telling, and least surprising, was that his defense of why he doesn't say "radical Islam" revealed there's no there there. The idea that linking terrorism to Islam smears the entire religion is preposterous, as is his claim that it "does the terrorists' work for them."
We are long past the point where 0bama's saying so makes it so, or even worth discussing. His fundamental problem is that he has nothing to show for his approach. If he had been right over the last eight years, we should be seeing big-time gains by now.
Instead, Islamic terrorism is growing around the world and the body count is mounting at home. More and more police officers are being pushed into counterterrorism duties as the nation's fear meter surges. It is noteworthy, too, that the most successful attacks since 9/11, in San Bernardino and now in Orlando, happened in cities that were not viewed as prime targets. That means no place is safe.
Meanwhile, the moderate American Muslims 0bama is always defending are almost all silent in the face of unspeakable horrors committed in the name of their religion.
The president has no substantive response to any of that, and not much desire to find one. His passion is reserved for criticism of Americans who don't see things his way, as though he can fool them one more time.
Trump: Maybe 0bama sympathizes with the terrorists
At the height of his anger, he warned that even talking about terrorism with a focus on Islam "makes Muslim Americans feel their government is betraying them."
In that case, they are joining a very large club, with two out of three Americans saying the country is on the wrong track. Millions of the disenchanted are turning to Trump because they concluded that not only had their government betrayed them, but that both political parties were in cahoots to keep them down.
Of course, because most of them are working-class people who play by the rules and don't demand special favors or government handouts, they're not important in Washington.
So they found an outsider they believe will speak for them and fight for them. That's why every punch Trump threw at the GOP establishment during the primaries, and every punch he throws at Clinton and Obama now, brings him more support and more loyalty.
It's also why Trump is going to keep swinging all the way to November. It's not elegant or pretty — in fact, it's often coarse and vulgar. But it's clearly getting under the president's very thin skin, and that's why it won't stop.
0bama had better get used to it. Finally, he may have met his match.

San Jose Firefighters REFUSED TO HELP Pleading Teen Trump Supporter Fleeing Terror Mob [feedly]
San Jose Firefighters REFUSED TO HELP Pleading Teen Trump Supporter Fleeing Terror Mob
A family friend of the teen Trump supporter wearing a red Trump for president t-shirt who was seen in video shown nationwide fleeing and being tackled by a terror mob of anti-Trump rioters told The Gateway Pundit that San Jose firefighters refused to help the terrorized teenage boy when he ran up to their firetruck. The source says the firefighters "rolled their window up when he asked for help at the fire truck." Video taken by a bystander shows the fleeing teen approaching a firetruck and then being left in the street to the mob as the firetruck drove away.
Before the boy fled the mob he had been beaten and his hat stolen according to a witness who posted photos to 4chan. The witness sickeningly described the teen's attempt to get help from the San Jose firetruck as 'funny'.
"the funniest part was when the white kid was trying to jump into a moving firetruck he was scared for his life…"
Top photo shows the teen Trump supporter being rabbit punched by a man described by the witness as a "nigga": "pic related is the poor kid getting punched in the back of the head, by a nigga"
"LMAO, this is on /pol/?
LOL i was there i saw the whole thing.
they stole his hat and punched him a few times
the funniest part was when the white kid was trying to jump into a moving firetruck he was scared for his life, i have the video, give me some (yous) and ill upload here, here screen shot but who wants me to upload it"
Video taken by a bystander (not the 4chan poster) in San Jose, California last Thursday of the anti-Trump riots outside of where presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was holding a campaign rally shows the teenage boy running for his life as he is chased, tackled and then flees again from a horde of rioters.
The teen can be seen running up to a San Jose fire truck. After a moment, the firetruck drives away blasting its horn, leaving the teen in the street. The teen starts running again only to be tackled by Seyfudin Mohamud, a Black Muslim male likely from Somalia. Mohamud bragged online about tackling the fleeing teen.
The family friend told The Gateway Pundit the teen's parents are, to put it mildly, "not happy with the police, fire department…and the city of San Jose."
The San Jose Police Department has not arrested Seyfudin Mohamud. the SJPD has his information, according to a spokeswoman who spoke with The Gateway Pundit on Monday. The department is dragging its heels even though the SJPD is aware Mohumad is a flight risk with ties to Minnesota and likely Somalia. KPIX-TV reported late Monday that the SJPD have announced no arrests have been made, but that they are "imminent."
""I can say that arrests are imminent," Albert Morales of the San Jose Police said."
Chief Eddie Garcia used a photo of the teen victim in a Facebook post on Friday that vowed to seek justice for victims of the riot.
The caption to the photo falsely claims the SJPD rescued the teen. By the time he found police officers willing to help him the teen had already been beaten, had his hat stolen, was chased, was turned away by San Jose firefighters, chased again and then tackled, and then chased yet again before finally being 'rescued' by the SJPD.
Other videos show the chase from different viewpoints. Also, a video by Breitbart News shows the teen before the attack acting calm and peaceful as he interacts with an anti-Trump protester.
In the Brietbart video, the teen can be seen wearing a red Make America Great Again ball cap that was later stolen when he was attacked and beaten by the terror mob.
A closing question: How does a parent explain to their child that the police and firefighters–whose job IT is to protect people–abandoned that child to a violent mob in plain view in broad daylight in a major American city in the year 2016?

Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force... Thank$ 0BaMa!
Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force...
A record 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May -- 664,000 more than in April -- and the labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.
When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce -- some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can't find work.

This Is How Much Your Health Insurance Payment Is About To Jump By
It's official: years of warnings that Obamacare will lead to dramatic increases in healthcare premiums are about to be validated.
As the WSJ writes, big health plans stung by losses in the first few years of the U.S. health law's implementation are seeking hefty premium increases for individual plans sold through insurance exchanges in more than a dozen states.
To be sure, we have extensively covered the imminent danger of rising healthcare prices as a result of Obamacare's intrusive intervention in the insurance sector; however now that this is about to become mainstream information, we expect consumers to hunker down and save even more in anticipation of what is about to be a shock price increase for millions of middle-class American families.
As the WSJ reports, the insurers' proposed rates for individual coverage in states that have made their 2017 requests public largely bear out health plans' grim predictions about their challenges under the health-care overhaul. According to the insurers' filings with regulators, large plans in states including New York, Pennsylvania and Georgia are seeking to raise rates by 20% or more.
In states such as Florida and Maryland, insurers are seeking to raise premiums by percentage averages that are markedly above 10%. Among those that have published so far, only in Vermont do big insurers' requests fall below 10%. Proposals still have to be approved by state regulators, and a full picture of final approved rates across the entire country likely won't be known until shortly before HealthCare.gov and state equivalents reopen for the law's fourth main enrollment window on Nov. 1.
Nonetheless, the proposed average increases that are available are a vivid indicator this year of how insurers are adapting to the 2010 Affordable Care Act's transformation of the way health coverage is priced and sold in the U.S.
So for all those currently enrolled in healthcare plans administered in the following states, this is how much, on average, your plans will go up by.
The silver lining? Since this effective tax goes straight to "boosting US GDP", we look forward to a year of "above trendling" GDP growth thanks to this forced reallocation of consumers' disposable income into the infamous "healthcare" category.

562,000 Workers Drop Out Of The Labor Force As Participation Rate Resumes Drop
In addition to the poor headline Establishment survey print which rose only 160,000 in April, coupled with a deplorable Household survey employment number which plunged by 316,000 for the month and below levels seen in February, an even more concerning development was the resumption in the deteriorating trend in the US labor force participation rate, which in recent months had been on a steady increase as far fewer workers were dropping out of the workforce (contrary to convention wisdom, this was not driven by new entrants into the labor force).
All that changed today, when the number of Americans not in the labor force soared by a whopping 562,000 in April, pushing the grand total of people not in the labor force back over 94 million and fast approaching the all time high of 94.6 million.
As a result, the participation rate, which recently had climbed to 63% or the highest since early 2014, has once again resumed its downward slope with the April print down to just 62.8% as the poor labor and demographic conditions once again emerge as a key driver within the US workforce.

Morning Joe Panel LAUGHS UNCONTROLLABLY After Watching Trump Supporter Destroy Lyin’ Ted
On Monday Trump supporters protested Ted Cruz outside an event in Indiana.
The Trump supporters were standing across the street from Ted chanting when Ted decided to go talk with them.
The protesters called Cruz "Lying Ted" to his face – over and over again.
The protesters went on to tell Ted, "It's time to drop out!"
The protester took advantage of Ted's many mid-sentence Shakespearean pauses – scoring hit after hit.
This exchange was hilarious:
Ted Cruz: Sir, America is a better country…
Protester: Without you.
Ted Cruz: Thank you for those kind sentiments. Let me point out I've treated you respectfully the entire time. And a question everyone here should ask…
Protester: Are you Canadian?
Oh my gosh.
What a disaster.
On Tuesday Joe Scarborough laughed uncontrollably after playing part of the exchange on Morning Joe.
"Are you Canadian?… Oh my God, are you Canadian!… Who was that guy? He's got great timing!… That's the problem when you have the Shakespearean pauses or the Pinter pauses, you leave room… "

Tweeting for President Trump?
No tweeting for President Trump
Donald Trump announced yesterday that he would no longer delight and enrage the universe with his nuggets of wit and wisdom via Twitter once he is elected President.
Politico reports that he made the proclamation at a rally in Rhode Island:
"You know, I tweeted today, @realDonaldTrump. I tweet," Trump said. He added, "Don't worry, I'll give it up after I'm president. We won't tweet anymore. I don't know. Not presidential."
The remark comes days after wife Melania remarked that she wished her husband would tone down his Twitter habit.
Say it ain't so!
For those who have spent way too much time on Twitter for the past several years, Trump's finest Twitter moments pre-date his announcement for the White House. The world needs Trump on Twitter. Being Commander-in-Chief should deprive us of these unforgettable gems as compiled by The Mirror:

Re: Markets vs. Economy
WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man is facing a fine for flying flags supporting Donald Trump.
Joseph Hornick thought police on March 25 were responding to his reports that the flags proclaiming "Trump Make America Great Again" flying outside his West Long Branch home had been vandalized. Instead, he was ticketed for violating an ordinance that restricts the display of political signs.
According to the police report, a resident who is a former Democratic councilman questioned why the municipal code enforcement officer had not cited Hornick.
"I'm not a football fan. I'm not a sports fan, but I'm surely a Donald Trump fan," Hornick told New York's WNBC-TV. The Republican said he has a right to express himself.
The town considers the flags supporting the Republican presidential candidate the same as political lawn signs, acting borough administrator Lori Cole said. "The ordinance states no political sign shall be displayed sooner than 30 days prior to the date of the election or the decision of the issue is scheduled," she said.
New Jersey's primary is June 7.
Violators face a minimum fine of $100. The maximum penalty is a fine of $2,000, 90 days in jail or both.
"I'm not taking the flag down, and if I do 90 days in jail, I'll do 90 days in jail," Hornick said.
His court date is April 20.
