Hillary linked to illegal campaign scheme Hundreds of thousands of dollars funneled to aid 2008 presidential bid

Hillary linked to illegal campaign scheme

Hundreds of thousands of dollars funneled to aid 2008 presidential bid

(WASHINGTON TIMES) Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s promise that she had scrubbed illegal cash contributions from her 2008 presidential campaign, prosecutors revealed Monday that the mastermind of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s “shadow campaign” also funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid Mrs. Clinton’s bid for the White House.
Jeffrey E. Thompson’s scheme included diverting more than $608,000 in illicit funds to a New York marketing executive, Troy White, who organized “street teams” to raise Mrs. Clinton’s visibility in urban areas during her Democratic primary battle against Barack ObamaMr. White pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in the case.
Prosecutors said that from February to May 2008, Thompson used two firms to disburse $608,750 in “excessive and unreported contributions to pay for campaign services in coordination with and in support of a federal political candidate for president of the United States and the federal and the candidate’s authorized committee.” That candidate was Mrs. Clinton.

Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s promise that she had scrubbed illegal cash contributions from her 2008 presidential campaign, prosecutors revealed Monday that the mastermind of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s “shadow campaign” also funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid Mrs. Clinton’s bid for the White House.
Jeffrey E. Thompson’s scheme included diverting more than $608,000 in illicit funds to a New York marketing executive, Troy White, who organized “street teams” to raise Mrs. Clinton’s visibility in urban areas during her Democratic primary battle against Barack Obama. Mr. White pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in the case.


Prosecutors said that from February to May 2008, Thompson used two firms to disburse $608,750 in “excessive and unreported contributions to pay for campaign services in coordination with and in support of a federal political candidate for president of the United States and the federal and the candidate’s authorized committee.” That candidate was Mrs. Clinton.
Mr. Obama, too, received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Thompson and his employees, although those donations apparently were legal.
U.S. Attorney Ron Machen said there was no indication that Mrs. Clinton was aware of the specific activities to aid her campaign.
“There are varying degrees of knowledge among the different candidates,” Mr. Machen said.
An attorney for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign in 2008, Lyn Utrecht, has said the campaign cooperated fully with prosecutors and never hired Mr. White to work on the presidential race. She said the campaign committee “turned down Mr. White’s services.”
But news reports last fall indicated that a top Clinton adviser, Minyon Moore, facilitated a meeting between Mr. White and Thompson. Ms. Utrecht did not return a request for comment Monday, nor did Mrs. Clinton’s top spokesman, Philippe Reines.


Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman at the time was Terry McAuliffe, now governor of Virginia. Mr. McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign said last year that it would not return a $2,500 donation that Thompson made in 2009.
The revelations are raising untimely, for Mrs. Clinton, reminders of fundraising improprieties just as her supporters are gearing up for a probable run for the presidency in 2016.
In 2007, when Mrs. Clinton was considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, she took the unprecedented step of returning $850,000 in contributions raised by Norman Hsu, a top campaign bundler who was wanted on criminal charges in a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme. At the time, Clinton campaign officials said they would undertake “vigorous” extra vetting procedures to make sure her sources of campaign funds were legitimate.
In 2009, a federal judge sentenced Hsu to more than 24 years in prison for violating campaign finance laws and defrauding investors.
The Hsu scandal, in turn, brought unwelcome reminders for Mrs. Clinton of her husband’s fundraising controversies in the 1990s, including Little Rock businessman Charlie Trie. In that episode, about $640,000 was returned or refused after accusations that Trie funneled fraudulent donations.
There was also the case of businessman Johnny Chung, in which the Democratic National Committee returned more than $360,000 in donations raised during President Clinton’s 1996 re-election bid. Chung admitted that he accepted some of the money from Chinese military officials.
In the Thompson case, prosecutors said Mr. Gray knew about the illegal shadow campaign. But Mr. Gray’s defenders are now using the example of Mrs. Clinton to bolster their argument that the mayor had no knowledge of Thompson’s illicit fundraising.
“No one has suggested that Hillary Clinton knew of Thompson’s illegal activities,” said Chuck Thies, manager for the Vince Gray 2014 campaign. “Mayor Gray has not been afforded the same presumption of innocence.”
The Center for Public Integrity reported last year that Thompson and other donors who listed his accounting firm as their employer gave at least $514,350 to federal candidates and political action committees since the 2002 campaign cycle. The biggest beneficiary of those funds was Mrs. Clinton, whose campaigns took in $50,400. Her presidential campaign committee received $40,300 from employees at Thompson’s firm in November 2007, when she attended a fundraiser at the company’s headquarters in the District.
Other recipients included Mr. Obama ($14,500 in the 2008 cycle), Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry ($20,000 in the 2004 cycle), presidential candidate John McCain ($13,800 in the 2008 cycle) and Sen. Harry Reid ($9,600 in 2009).
Thompson personally made political contributions totaling at least $215,000 in that period.
Craig Holman, a campaign finance specialist at the watchdog group Public Citizen in Washington, said shadow campaigns are becoming common with the expansion of political action committees.
“Of all the super PACs involved in the 2012 federal elections, 58 percent supported a single candidate — established and run by friends, family or former campaign staff of that single candidate. This is a shadow campaign,” he said.
Mr. Holman said courts have imposed a high barrier in defining which shadow campaigns are legal and which are not.
“As long as there is no traceable agreement between the candidate and the political operative — just a wink and a nod — the courts are reluctant to find coordination between the two,” he said.
Mr. Holman said the public should raise concerns about shadow campaigns, especially those backing every major recent presidential campaign, including Mrs. Clinton‘s.
“Hopefully, public disgust will grow against the artificial line drawn in the sand by the courts as to ‘legal’ versus ‘illegal’ shadow campaigns,” he said.

Universe-Shattering Evidence” Re: Obama Criminal Investigation

Universe-Shattering Evidence” Re: Obama Criminal Investigation

Storyleak EXCLUSIVE
How is the Obama criminal probe related to the preplanned Ukraine ‘Orange Revolution 2.0′ executed by the Anglo-American Axis?
March of 2014 may shape up to be a series of defining moments in both US and world history. The staged coup in the Ukraine, which was orchestrated by the US et al., may very well lead to an even more bellicose confrontation between Russia and the Western powers. Russia is quietly supported in their various moves to protect Ukrainian sovereignty by many other nations including China, another permanent member of the UN Security Council.
There are several other key nations that have been victimized by US military action and/or threats of aggression which also stand firmly behind the Russian response. Likewise, there are many countries around the world that have been the recipient of intense economic pressure and financial leverage used by the US-EU to compel compliance with their oppressive agenda.  The BRICS economic union is particularly aligned in their mission to end US global dominance, and especially to terminate the petrodollar as the world’s reserve currency.
The same bloc of nations is well aware that the USA carefully premeditated the color revolution staged in Kiev as a means of deliberately provoking the Russian “bear”.  They are also cognizant of Russia’s firm intention to reverse this coup d’├ętat coordinated by the CIA.  Nevertheless, it is clear that there are critical geo-political moves being made on the Ukrainian chessboard which will ultimately determine who wins the Great Game, once and for all.  
From a much larger perspective, it is important to understand that there are truly “universe-shattering” events in the making that directly revolve around the future of the Ukraine.  When portentous threats and counter-threats are made on a daily basis such as those delineated in this article, the world has already changed … profoundly and irreversibly!  The inevitable outcome of the upcoming massive movements of money and power, influence and force, will determine the future economic and financial landscape of the planet.

The Obama Administration is operating under extreme pressures at home and extraordinary stresses from abroad. 
Why would Team Obama execute the violent overthrow of yet another democratically elected nation on Russia’s border, unless it was a necessary diversion to soon-to-be-presented “Universe-Shattering Evidence“?
“When this information is finally exposed to the public, it will be universe-shattering,” Mike Zullo told WND. “This is beyond the pale of anything you can imagine.”[1]
This quote refers to a statement recently made by Mike Zullo, the lead investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP) that was constituted by Phoenix Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio.  The CCP has evolved into a full-blown “Obama Criminal Investigation” and Zullo is referring to evidence that will be presented in an upcoming March news conference. Initially set up to investigate the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the CCP has since significantly expanded its mandate.  This augmentation of investigative powers occurred because of a continuous stream of incriminating evidence that has poured into Zullo’s office regarding other illicit conduct on the part of Obama and his Administration.
“I can’t tell you what this is, but the magnitude is so great that Sheriff Arpaio has allotted resources from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. He is fully invested in this and I don’t think I’ve been home more than two days this month.”  – Mike Zullo [1]
What could be so “Universe Shattering” that Team Obama would deliberately implement covert plans to instigate a civil war in an ex-Soviet Republic during the entire Sochi Winter Olympics?
“According to Zullo, Arpaio has taken down the previous barrier between the CCP [Cold Case Posse] and the MCSO [Maricopa County Sheriff's Office] regarding the expanded criminal investigation that now goes way beyond just the forged BC [birth certificate].” [1]
Both Zullo and Arpaio ought to be commended for the depth and integrity of their investigation.  In the process they stumbled upon a genuine national security threat as follows:
“Zullo explained that along with new information discovered regarding the birth certificate since the posse’s March 1 press conference, his team has discovered Hawaii provides easy access to a birth certificate, even if the child wasn’t born in the state.”
However, the much greater national security risk exists in the fact that, at any time, the president can be threatened with exposure on the front page of any major newspaper or on any of the major networks’ evening news.  The risk goes well beyond these two examples, since any foreign nation could also make Obama’s forged birth certificate their top story — evidence and all — for a protracted period of time.  In this way a sitting president can be coerced or extorted into making a desired decision(s) on behalf of those applying the political pressure.
wagthedog

WAG THE DOG

“To ‘wag the dog‘ means to purposely divert attention from what would otherwise be of greater importance, to something else of lesser significance. By doing so, the lesser-significant event is catapulted into the limelight, drowning proper attention to what was originally the more important issue.”
It is a well known political device in times of extreme stress and extraodinary pressure that wars are started in foreign lands as a diversionary tactic.  These patently illegal wars are calculated to divert attention from some very serious political or criminal developments at home.  Everything points to the Ukrainian crisis being manufactured by the political arm of the White House.  Now the question is why embark on such a risky, dangerous and misguided venture?
Of course, there are other very good reasons why Obama would literally start World War III.  Not only are his poll ratings tanking, Obamacare is proving to be an disaster of epic proportions.  His gross ineptitude and willful neglect on the economic front has also become so apparent that a war would not only serve as a necessary distraction, it might also provide a desperately boost to the economy.
The operative word in this discussion is DESPERATE.  The current administration has acted with such a high degree of recklessness and irresponsibility, by their provocations and inciting violence against a sovereign nation, that they do seem inordinately desperate.  This conduct includes the regular dissemination of outright falsehoods and fabrications which have only aggravated an already grave situation.  Obama, Kerry, Nuland and Company did their level best to twist the realities on the ground in Kiev, as they continue distort the responses of Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
Unparalleled Constitutional Crisis Hss Been Brewing For Over Five Years
The ongoing constitutional crisis, which has been in the making since Obama took center stage in American politics, is fast coming to a head.  The massive and unprecedented problems with Obamacare have only accelerated the drive to understand how a presidential candidate was vetted so poorly by his own political party. That he was eventually forced to post a forged and fraudulent birth certificate as proof of eligibility, on an official White House website, has only intensified the efforts of those who pursue the truth and demand justice.
With an ever-growing number of independent voters who are no longer aligned with either side of the two-party system, there is less tolerance for outright criminal activity by those in government service, especially within the Federal Executive Branch.  The Tea Party, in particular, has aggressively pursued the truth about Obama, going so far as to solicit Sheriff Arpaio’s official assistance back in 2011.
Truly, when the factual revelations about President Barack Obama’s actual history are made known, everything will change. When the various willful violations of federal law and state statutes are presented to the public, the current Administration will collapse in a day and a night. As the details of this multi-year crime spree are disseminated throughout the mainstream media (MSM), this nation will cease to operate the way that it has been.
Team Arpaio: Major Media Heavily Involved
In Sheriff Joe’s Obama Criminal Investigation
“*

*The Birther Report was posted here because it was the only video source  
that spoke directly to the recent developments announced by Mike Zullo.
When multiple sources publish that major media will be involved with
with the Obama Criminal Investigation, the more that possibility exists.
The point is that when the mainstream media gets involved, the entire
Obama Birth Certificate charade is very close to blowing wide open.
And that’s as big as it gets!  

Can there be any other reason why Obama’s State Department would aggressively foment a revolution in the biggest economic and political powder keg on the European Union border? While there are also other compelling economic and financial considerations that motivated the US (and EU) to perpetrate an act of war against a Russian-speaking people, there is something much bigger in the offing that Team Obama felt necessary to distract from.
OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE: CONFIRMED FORGERY ACCORDING TO TOP EXPERTS
Yes, the birth certificate has been scientifically proven a fake.  Therefore, it really is now that serious. Because the MSM has knowingly and willingly colluded in deceiving the American public since April of 2011, when the forged and fraudulent birth certificate was first posted on the WhiteHouse.gov website, this whole situation has only gotten much more complicated.  The MSM is profoundly complicit in the cover-up of a series of high-level crimes, which have been committed in an effort to deceive the American people.  That they have have never been so desperate is easily seen by watching any news coverage.
This evolving crime saga is not only very complicated for Obama and his Administration, the Congress, the Supreme Court, and the entire Democratic Party, it also presents the most thorny and divisive issue to be taken up by the US electorate as well as the nation-at-large. Of course, the far-reaching ramifications for geo-political relationships, signed treaties, trade agreements, etc. are also complex and convoluted.
When Israel Enters The Fray
When the Israel Science and Technology website performed exhaustive analyses and technical assessments on the posted copy of Obama’s Long-Form Birth Certificate, they found definitive evidence of forgery and fraud that was as irrefutable as it was unassailable. Here are the final and categorical conclusions which they published on their web page entitled:
Long-Form Birth Certificate of Obama is a Forged Document
The analyses presented below reveal without a doubt that the Long-Form Birth Certificate of Mr. Obama is a fabricated, fake and forged document.
The publication of such a blatantly fake document about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, should raise great concern about the suitability of the person who is holding the reins on the most powerful country of the World.
Moreover, the lack of action on the part of the members of the United States House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the courts of the United States, despite many previous appeals to these three branches of American government, also raise a concern about how the governmental institutions of the reputedly best, and certainly the most important democracy in the Free World have avoided this issue.”
DrudgeReportSheriffJoeObamaBirthCertificateFake-7-17-2012-CROP-BC-SS
Conclusion:
Without a doubt, there are some very serious problems within the Obama Admisistration.  This president has not only turned out to be the most divisive and untrustworthy in US history, he seems to go out of his way to inflame passions around the most volatile issues. You name it – gun control, immigration, gay marriage, abortion, marijuana legalization, partisan healthcare reform, inserting himself into inter-racial killings, steadfast refusal to enforce laws not to his liking, abuse of executive orders, misuse of recess appointments, extrajudicial assassinations by drones, NSA spying on foreign leaders and innocent US citizens, dramatic increase in the national debt, string of broken campaign promises such as Guantanamo, etc.
Much more significantly, Obama always seems to take the wrong side of these inflammatory issues.  Or, he thoroughly mucks them up as he has with his fatally flawed ‘signature’ legislation Obamacare. Given all the governmental debacles and disasters that have occurred on his watch, you really have to wonder what his real purpose is!
There is much more dubious conduct on the part of Obama and his Administration that beckons for further inquiry and investigation.  As follows:
•  Using the IRS to target Obama’s political enemies
•  Repeatedly and lawlessly rewriting the Affordable Healthcare Act
•  Benghazi debacle and cover-up
•  Associated Press reporters’ phone records scandal
•  ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme
•  HHS Secretary Sebelius solicits large donations from companies to save Obamacare
•  Pigford scandal
•  Immigration Enforcement – relentless subversion by DOJ
•  GSA Administrator resignation in the face of blatant waste of taxpayers’ money
•  Justice Department monitoring reporter James Rosen of FOX News
•  Cash for Clunkers fiasco
•  Solyndra and other solar company financial scandals
•  BP Gulf oil spill gross misrepresentation and mishandling
•  Obama’s birth place questioned according to his own Harvard Law Review entry
•  CIA Spying on the Senate
One would think that a sitting president, who has not even proven his eligibility to occupy the office, would tread very carefully.  Instead, Obama cavalierly commits more crimes to cover up the most felonious transgressions of his administration.  Perhaps in the hope that he will successfully divert and distract his way through two terms, does he so brazenly stay the same course — “Welcome to the Shuck and Jive Show“!

Author’s Note:
It is inconceivable, in view of so much categorical evidence that demonstrates a forged and fraudulent Obama birth certificate, that the US Congress has allowed this situation to go unaddressed.
Clearly, there are so many bonafide cases of misprision of felony[2] throughout this sordid affair that it’s difficult to know who to hold accountable first.  Scores of government officials, political operatives, DC attorneys, Democratic party leaders and the like will eventually be identified for their obvious failure to blow the whistle on this premeditated presidential deception.
They — all of them — have knowingly deceived the American people and violated the public trust in a most profound and fundamental way.  This constitutional republic will never be the same.  Nor should it be, when all is said and done.
Editor’s Note:
What is fast developing on the global economic/financial chessboard is a complete international and multi-institutional rearrangement of the recently shredded Bretton Woods Agreement. Several countries have been secretly or quietly exiting the Bretton Woods System for years.  Because of the many interpenetrating and seemingly inextricable linkages between those nations who want to maintain this US-UK dictated system and those that don’t, the final divorce has been tentatively postponed time and again.
However, the longer the period of the ongoing separation, the more groundwork that has been fastidiously laid by those who have already decided to leave the Yankee-English reservation.  Were one to look closely at the many initiatives taken by the BRICS economic union, it would become obvious that the end is very near indeed.  Brazil recently announced the plan of a “new undersea cable” completely outside the internet sphere of Anglo-American influence.
The upshot of this whole state of affairs is that the world is literally on the cusp of an unprecedented and earth-shattering transformation.  The birth pangs have been felt for years, especially since 9/11.  The Crash of 2008 only accelerated the process.  The fateful US-UK ‘miscalculation’ in the Ukraine may very well serve as the catalyst for the Russian midwife to finish the delivery.  The new baby will live in a world that is not dominated by any single currency ($) or nation (U$) or military pact (NATO).
Birth Pains of the New Financial System
Neither will it be presided over by a Nobel Peace Prize ‘winner’ who perfected the art of drone warfare by which hundreds of innocent civilians have been killed.  And, who has yet to produce his birth certificate after five years of occupying the highest office in the land!

What the hell is this American plane owned by the Bank of Utah doing in IRAN?

What the hell is this American plane owned by the Bank of Utah doing in IRAN?

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times.
Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy.
The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including three in Ogden, two in Salt Lake City and one in Trementon (pop. 7,647). Its humble motto is: “Experience. Service.”
The bank’s senior officials say they are baffled.
“We have no idea why that plane was at that airport,” Brett King, a Bank of Utah executive in Salt Lake City, told the Times.
“As fiduciary, we must keep information confidential when it comes to the beneficiary,” he added.
King also called the Bank of Utah “very conservative” and promised to get to the bottom of the situation “if there is any hint of illegal activity.”
The bank executive explained that his employer is only a trustee for the unidentified investors (possibly foreign investors) who actually own the aircraft (N-Number N604EP). Interestingly, the Bank of Utah acts as a trustee for a slew of planes—1,169 of them to be exact, everything from Boeing 747s to small, piston-powered Cessnas. In fact, not many American banks act as a trustee for more American aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration offered no help whatsoever concerning the mysterious jet parked in broad daylight at the busiest airport in Iran (over 13 million passengers in 2010).
Similarly, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, which enforces the vast array of sanctions against Iran, refused to comment. However, under federal law, the department is normally supposed to approve the presence of any American airplane on Iranian soil. Such approval would be especially important in this case because the plane is powered by engines manufactured by General Electric.
Meanwhile, Hamid Babaei, a spokesman for Iran’s mission to the United Nations in New York, offered no information about the people on the plane or the plane’s owner.
“We don’t have any information in this regard,” Babaei told the paper of record. “I refer you to the owner.”
Mehrabad Airport officials would only describe the plane as “V.I.P.”


An amateur plane-spotting sleuth – that’s a hobby in the world – caught a glimpse of this particular plane departing from an airport in Zurich, Switzerland in January. That was during the annual World Economic Forum in the ritzy ski town of Davos. In October, someone else saw the plane in London when it was on the way to Ghana.
Former federal aviation officials speaking on condition of anonymity told the Times that high-ranking American officials almost certainly approved the plane’s mysterious trip to Iran given that it sat readily identifiable on a gangway at a busy commercial airport.

Sarah Palin Attempting To Remove Obama From Office

Sarah Palin Attempting To Remove Obama From Office

Sarah Palin has been very vocal in the media recently about wanting to remove Obama from office. Things were only made worse after the horrible comments Obama made about the Constitution.
“We have a president who doesn’t understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution,” Sarah Palin, former Alaska Governor, said of President Obama recently in an interview with Fox News.
Palin continued on to say that Obama has single-handedly shaped immigration laws, healthcare policies, and welfare programs—all without the support and approval from the American people. What we need, accordingly to Palin, is a “new energy.”
She is in support of electing officials who will focus on states’ rights, instead of the expanding power of the federal government. According to Palin, we need someone who will “promise to pay whatever price it is going to take to protect our Constitution.”
What do you think? Do you agree with Palin’s statements?
Will you help her get rid of Obama?

Hillary’s Numbers Plummet, Majority of Americans Still Want Answers on Benghazi

Hillary’s Numbers Plummet, Majority of Americans Still Want Answers on Benghazi

Hillary

It appears that America is already souring on the idea of Hillary Clinton before she even runs. According to the Washington Post, Clinton is experiencing the worst approval ratings she has seen in six years while, at the same time, the GOP brand continues to rise in favorability amongst Americans.
 
Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company shows a 49% approval rating for Clinton with a 45% unfavorable rating.
 
The last time she enjoyed ratings this low was during the 2008 presidential primary as she and Sen. Barack Obama duked it out.
 
Though that appears far from disastrous, Hillary Clinton’s likely run for president in 2016 has a bit of a tailwind as many Americans want to see a female president in the White House. As we approach the 2016 elections, however, the GOP will come out strongly and very publicly against the former Secretary of State who has accumulated no significant political achievements, but still has the Benghazi scandal hanging around her neck.
 
After Islamic terrorists attacked our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, Secretary of State Clinton and other top State Department officials spun a ludicrous narrative  concerning a YouTube video that was soundly rejected by the American public. After years of investigation, the scandal still remains at the forefront of political conversations, especially after Clinton infamously wondered during her Congressional testimony, “What difference, at this point, does it make?!”
 
According to the same polls, however, Americans appear to be warming to the Republican Party as we head into the midterms. 45% hold a favorable opinion, 45% hold an unfavorable opinion.
 
In October, only 30% held a favorable opinion of the GOP with 63% reporting an unfavorable opinion.
 
Furthermore, Clinton may encounter some significantly choppy waters as she approached her presidential bid as the majority of Americans believe that the government is hiding details about the Benghazi attack and the majority want Congress to continue to investigate.
 

7 Blockbuster Obamacare Charts That the White House Doesn’t Want America to See

7 Blockbuster Obamacare Charts That the White House Doesn’t Want America to See

Remember all those promises that were made to sell Obamacare? Like lowering premiums for a family of 4 by $2,500 a year, allowing people to keep their plans and their doctors, not adding a dime to the deficit, and all of that?
Well, let’s just see how much of a striking success “Obamacare” is based on the numbers so far. The Heritage Foundation created these charts based on the HHS’ own numbers, the CBO’s, and the Kaiser Family Foundation’s.

1.Young People’s Premiums are Jacked Up

Premiums_Age27If you’re a young person, you’re pretty much screwed. Not only will you be paying higher premiums to subsidize your elders, you will be paying more taxes over your lifetime to pay back the loans we’re accruing just to pay for this boondoggle. You’re welcome, right?

2. Family of Four – Your Premiums Did Not Drop $2,500/Yr.

CP-Obamacare-in-Pictures-5_HIGHRES
So… Mr. Smooth was going to save a family of four $2,500 a year in premiums, as promised so many times it’s laughable. About that… a family of four is likely to get an increase in premiums, and in addition, basically anyone who wants to work and live the American Dream will be penalized with higher taxes.

3. New Taxes for Everybody!

CP-Obamacare-in-Pictures-11_HIGHRESSpeaking of taxes, check out these bad boys. Not just one, but 18 new taxes lumped into one giant bill that should be called “Obamatax.” Hey, it’s not a tax! Oh yeah, well, now it is.

4. Raiders of the Lost Medicare


Medicarecuts
You would think from all the hysteria nowadays about Medicaid expansion to the states that this was the main purpose of Obamacare – to spread a huge soviet-style welfare program to as many homes as possible (and let those who are on it tell ya about the amazin’ service while they’re at it!) Anyway, let’s frame some of that left-wing hypocrisy by pointing out Obamacare’s massive cuts to another government program – Medicare.

5. You Like Higher Deductibles? Well, Obamacare’s Got ‘Em!


CP-Obamacare-in-Pictures-6_HIGHRES
Now, show him the deductibles, Bob! Average deductibles on the “Catastrophic,” “Bronze,” and “Silver” plans are going through the roof. (No worries if you live in Colorado or Washington, just light up a joint and forget you read this.)

6. Obamacare Costs Way More Than Projected – And It’s Not Even Warmed Up


CP-Obamacare-in-Pictures-8_HIGHRES
Now here comes the biggie – cost. If you were one of the supporters of this law who thought it wouldn’t “add a dime” to the deficit, I want you to turn to your (theoretical) children and grandchildren and apologize. We’ll wait.
No, tell them the part about how you’ll be sticking your kids with your generation’s bills, and how debt is the unpaid portion of the federal budget that gets passed on to someone else.
Still don’t feel guilty? How about realizing that all of those taxes coming out of the private sector to pay for this disaster will limit your children’s futures, indicated in part by the half of college graduates who can’t find jobs in their fields? Oh, now you feel guilty.

7. Still Unpopular After All These Years

Ocare_popularity
And lo and behold, this healthcare “reform” boondoggle passed through procedural gimmickry with no bipartisan support whatsoever loaded with nonsense and unread in full by most of the nation’s “representation” in Washington still has very little support  – beyond those Democrats who would support anything the party told them to.

King James Version (KJV)
17 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

FACT SHEET: Ukraine-Related Sanctions

FACT SHEET: Ukraine-Related Sanctions

President Obama today issued a new Executive Order (E.O.) under the national emergency with respect to Ukraine that finds that the actions and policies of the Russian government with respect to Ukraine -– including through the deployment of Russian military forces in the Crimea region of Ukraine –- undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets.
This new authority expands upon E.O. 13660, which the President signed less than two weeks ago, by authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to impose sanctions on named officials of the Russian government, any individual or entity that operates in the Russian arms industry, and any designated individual or entity that acts on behalf of, or that provides material or other support to, any senior Russian government official.  We have fashioned these sanctions to impose costs on named individuals who wield influence in the Russian government and those responsible for the deteriorating situation in Ukraine.  We stand ready to use these authorities in a direct and targeted fashion as events warrant.
In response to the Russian government’s actions contributing to the crisis in Ukraine, this new E.O. lists seven Russian government officials who are being designated for sanctions.  These individuals are Vladislav Surkov, Sergey Glazyev, Leonid Slutsky, Andrei Klishas, Valentina Matviyenko, Dmitry Rogozin, and Yelena Mizulina.
The United States also will seek to hold accountable individuals who use their resources or influence to support or act on behalf of senior Russian government officials.  We recognize that the Russian leadership derives significant support from, and takes action through, individuals who do not themselves serve in any official capacity.  Our current focus is to identify these individuals and target their personal assets, but not companies that they may manage on behalf of the Russian state.
In addition to the new E.O., the Treasury Department today has imposed sanctions on four other individuals under E.O. 13660, issued on March 6, for their actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine and in undermining the Government of Ukraine.  They are Crimea-based separatist leaders Sergey Aksyonov and Vladimir Konstantinov; former Ukrainian presidential chief of staff Viktor Medvedchuk; and former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
Today’s actions send a strong message to the Russian government that there are consequences for their actions that violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including their actions supporting the illegal referendum for Crimean separation.  The United States, together with international partners, will continue to stand by the Ukrainian government to ensure that costs are imposed on Crimean separatists and their Russian backers.  Today’s actions also serve as notice to Russia that unless it abides by its international obligations and returns its military forces to their original bases and respects Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the United States is prepared to take additional steps to impose further political and economic costs.
  • Vladislav Surkov:  Surkov is being sanctioned for his status as a Presidential Aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
  • Sergey Glazyev:  Glazyev is being sanctioned for his status as a Presidential Adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
  • Leonid Slutsky:  Slutsky is being sanctioned for his status as a State Duma deputy, where he is Chairman of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration, and Relations with Compatriots. 
  • Andrei Klishas:  Klishas is being sanctioned for his status as a Member of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and as Chairman of the Federation Council Committee of Constitutional Law, Judicial, and Legal Affairs, and the Development of Civil Society. 
  • Valentina Matviyenko:  Matviyenko is being sanctioned for her status as Head of the Federation Council
  • Dmitry Rogozin:  Rogozin is being sanctioned for his status as the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.
  • Yelena Mizulina:  Mizulina is being sanctioned for her status as a State Duma Deputy.
  • Sergey Aksyonov:  Aksyonov is being designated for threatening the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine, and for undermining Ukraine’s democratic institutions and processes.  Aksyonov claims to be the Prime Minister of Crimea and has rejected the authority of the legitimate government in Kyiv.
  • Vladimir Konstantinov:  Konstantinov is being designated for threatening the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine, and for undermining Ukraine’s democratic institutions and processes.  Konstantinov is the speaker of the Crimean parliament, which on March 11, 2014, declared independence from Ukraine.
  • Viktor Medvedchuk:  Medvedchuk, leader of Ukrainian Choice, is being designated for threatening the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine, and for undermining Ukraine’s democratic institutions and processes.  He is also being designated because he has materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support to Yanukovych and because he is a leader of an entity that has, or whose members have, engaged in actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine and actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine.
  • Viktor Yanukovych:  Former Ukrainian President Yanukovych is being designated for threatening the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine, and for undermining Ukraine’s democratic institutions and processes.  After abandoning Kyiv and ultimately fleeing to Russia, Viktor Yanukovych called upon Russian President Vladimir Putin to send Russian troops into Ukraine.

Revelation 16

Revelation 16

King James Version (KJV)
16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Congress, Stop Making Empty Threats and Stop Obama

Congress, Stop Making Empty Threats and Stop Obama

Congress keeps talking about stopping President Obama, yet he continues to do what he does, virtually unchecked.
We have grown tired of hearing the empty threats.  We are ready to see decisive action.
There are some good people in Congress, like Trey Gowdy, who are men and women that are determined to do what is right.  But they are not the ones in power, and they are outnumbered by the status quo establishment politicians.
Obama is being protected on a whole range of scandalous issues by the establishment of both parties, especially on Benghazi, the IRS targeting scandal and the NSA spying scandal.  They do this because it is the safe bet from their perspective.  Career politicians that make deals and constantly compromise with the opposition don’t want to rock the boat.  There is too much at stake for them to lose if they do.
We all know that nothing of consequence is going to be done in the Senate, at least not while Harry Reid is in charge.  Even so, there are a handful of Senators making waves and upsetting the establishment.  Senators like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are serious about confronting and putting a stop to Obama’s unconstitutional power grabs and Executive actions.
Unfortunately, Rand, Ted and Mike aren’t the guys calling the shots in the Senate.  As much noise as they may make, they can’t yet get past the old establishment guys in leadership like Mitch McConnell, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who would rather make backroom deals or pal around with Democrats than actually stand up for the American people, the Constitution and the founding principles of our country and their party.
This only shows the vital importance of Republicans taking control of the Senate in the 2014 mid-terms.  Yes, the good guys like Rand, Ted and Mike may still have to deal with the likes of McConnell, McCain and Graham, but with Harry Reid out of the way, and Republicans in the majority, it will likely be far easier for the good guys to bring more Senators over to their side, allowing them to put ever increasing pressure on McConnell to actually listen to the base and make serious moves to stop Obama.
It is a somewhat similar story in the House, even with Republicans already holding the majority.  There are actually quite a few good guys and gals in the House, namely Trey Gowdy, Justin Amash, Thomas Massie, Louis Gohmert, Steve Stockman, Bill Flores, Steve King, Jason Chaffetz, Duncan Hunter, Michelle Bachmann, and Jim Bridenstine, to name just a few, and they have been able to exert pressure on leadership to do things, even though they know such things have no chance in the Harry Reid led Senate.
The biggest problem in the House is the Speaker, John Boehner.  He says the right things sometimes, and moves along bills, but only when he knows that it will get stopped in Harry Reid’s Senate.  He stalls on the big issues, caves on all of the big fights, compromising with Obama and the Democrats instead of standing strong and fighting alongside his Republican colleagues and the American people.  He is also quick to turn on his fellow GOP “friends”, blaming them when the pressure gets too high.
The solution to the problem is clear.  First, Republicans must take back control of the Senate.  Liberty minded Senators must grow their caucus and exert constant pressure on Mitch McConnell to do the right things.  Second, Republicans need to hold on to the House, grow their base of Constitutional and freedom loving Representatives, replace John Boehner as Speaker, and then send Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, where McConnell will be forced to act upon them and proceed with the trial.
We here at Capitalism Institute nominate Trey Gowdy to be the next Speaker of the House.  Do you second that nomination?

WATCH: Congressman Says House Has Enough Votes to Impeach Obama (VIDEO)

WATCH: Congressman Says House Has Enough Votes to Impeach Obama (VIDEO)

There are countless reasons that Obama should be immediately impeached but, for whatever reason, Congress has done little to call for it — until now.
Obama is behind the Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, and NSA scandals. He has unilaterally bypassed Congress to change laws (including his signature heathcare legislation). He violated the War Powers Act to militarily intervene in Libya and does not believe he needs congressional approval to bomb Syria. He thinks he has the power to indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without charge or trial and he is committed to piling on as much debt as humanly possible onto the backs of unborn generations.
If Obama really believes he is a king (as his actions suggest), he is sorely mistaken. It is time for him to go.
Representative Bill Flores (R-TX) spoke at a townhall meeting recently and told the attendees that “if the House had an impeachment vote, it would impeach the president.”
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) recently distributed “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office” to every single member of the House of Representatives. He says that impeachment is “a last resort; it’s a very serious step. And, quite frankly, this president has done a lot of actions which [...] could be challenged in court.” He cites Obama “tearing out pages” of his own healthcare law and granting members of Congress exemptions from participating in it as two of the many justifications for Obama’s impeachment. He continues, “should we decide [impeachment is] an option we can take, we will go ahead and move forward.” You can listen to his full commentary here:
Flores and Stockman are not the only members of Congress and the Senate who have publicly offered impeachment as an option for finally putting and end to Obama’s tyrannical rampage. 
WND reports:
Other members of Congress who have made comments about impeachment include Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla.
“I think he’s breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval,” Hunter told the Washington Times regarding Obama’s plan to bomb Syria. “And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.”
It seems every day we learn of a new way Barack Obama has unabashedly violated the Constitution he was elected to uphold, enforce, and protect. To quote Rep. Justin Amash, his actions are “setting the stage for something very dangerous.” Congress must step up and hold  him accountable. Impeachment would also pose a credible threat to any future president by sending a clear message that the American people simply will not stand for having a  king. If we do nothing, that threat is lost.

Senator: If GOP Takes the Senate, Impeachment is Next

Senator: If GOP Takes the Senate, Impeachment is Next

We have heard a lot of talk about impeaching President Obama, and have grown tired of the empty threats and rhetoric.  But, so long as Harry Reid controls the Senate, we know impeachment will never happen.
We know that there are enough votes for impeachment in the House, so it comes down to Republicans taking control of the Senate in 2014, which is on track to happen.
Democrats know that they are likely to lose control of the Senate in the midterms, and admit that they are worried about impeachment after that.
Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) recently said that if the GOP takes control of the Senate in the midterms, then impeachment will be on the table.
(H/T Tea Party Crusaders)
Appearing on “The Rusty Humphries Show” Thursday, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said, “Of all the great cover-ups in history — the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them — this … is going to go down as most egregious cover-up in American history,” Inhofe said.
“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe told Humphries.
Inhofe was presumably speaking about the Benghazi coverup, but could just as easily been talking about the IRS targeting scandal, NSA spying, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, or any number of other scandalous activities and behavior exhibited by Obama and his administration.
Inhofe stresses that impeachment rests solely upon the ability of Republicans to regain control of the Senate.  It is imperative that Harry Reid and the Democrats are ousted from the majority, not only for impeachment, but as a general way to slow down or stop Obama’s progressive liberal agenda that is destroying our country’s economy, military and standing on the world stage.
Please share on Facebook or Twitter if you are glad to hear impeachment will be a priority if the GOP takes control of the Senate.
