Obama’s ‘Fundemental Tranformation’ Of America

ELDER PATRIOT – President Obama has now completed over 80 percent of his term in office.  Blaming his predecessor George W. Bush for the nation’s economic condition no longer holds merit, if it ever did.  At this point Obama owns our economy, our wars, and every other issue big and small.

The Associated Press is reporting that food banks have been experiencing a rise in demand for free groceries every year since Obama took office.  This is clearly an ominous sign because there can only be two explanations.  Either people no longer care to work and/or they no longer can find work.  Neither reason is indicative of a healthy society.

Why is this so?  What happened to the country of our ancestors where anyone with an idea and a willingness to work hard could build a successful business?    How can the United States now be ranked twelfth in new business start-ups behind countries like Hungary?

New business start-ups are now at a thirty-year low.  Worse, failures are at a thirty-year high so that since 2008, small business failures have outpaced business start-ups. Jim Clifton chairman and CEO of Gallup tells us that during that span of time – Obama’s entire presidency – we are minus 70,000 small businesses net.

The reason for this disastrous decline is government.  Government on all levels – federal, state and local – have burdened businesses with stifling regulations, consumer liabilities, employment laws with attendant legal costs, rising minimum wage requirements, higher energy costs, increased taxes and fees, building codes and regulations that cause delays in opening and increase costs dramatically, among many, many other reasons.

That large corporations are subject to these same laws offers no relief for the small entrepreneur.  The costs of compliance, when spread over 100’s of operating units gives the large players a distinct competitive advantage. 

Likewise, the high taxes that are levied on successful small businessmen when coupled with the growing risk of failure have made the risk/reward of start-up unattractive to an ever-increasing number of entrepreneurs. 

Lax enforcement of immigration law creates yet another barrier for entrepreneurs versed in employment law.  Because many competitors hire illegal aliens, law-abiding entrepreneurs are forced to consider the financial disadvantage they’ll find themselves at by hiring U.S. citizens.

Preying on the economic ignorance of the majority of Americans, Obama universally points to the record level of the stock market as the most significant indicator of the economy’s strength.  It’s not.  Large corporations have historically been responsible for creating only 25% of America’s jobs.  With foreign countries offering lower employment, occupancy and energy costs there is increased incentives for large corporations to out-source as many jobs as practicable to these other countries. 

The results are higher corporate profits that result in higher stock valuations but come with the loss of jobs here in the United States.

Sadly there is no initiative to change things.   The legislative initiatives passed by President Obama’s party have only exacerbated the situation by favoring large-cap corporations going so far as guaranteeing their survival at the cost of…the entrepreneur and other taxpayers.

The singular measure of an economy’s strength is its ability to provide jobs for the people.  Not only does high employment spread the tax burden more evenly, it lessens the demand for welfare programs.  Both create wealth that can then be recycled by the people back into the economy to continue its growth.

That Obama refuses to adapt to the failures of his economic policy can mean only one of two things; he’s stupid and stubborn (not likely,) or his agenda is consolidation and control of U.S. business to weaken U.S. sovereignty and move us closer the New World Order.

Jim Clifton made this abundantly clear:

Let me be very clear. America, Inc. is far more important to America’s security than our military. Because without the former prospering — and solvent — there is no latter. We have enormous military power only because of a growing economy that has, so far, made it possible for the government to pay its bills. When former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, was asked in a Senate hearing on June 28, 2011, to name the biggest current threat to the security of the United States, he didn’t say al-Qaida. He didn’t say Iran’s nuclear capabilities. He answered, “I believe our debt is the greatest threat to our national security.”

We have seen Obama and know who he is.  If we hope to restore the United States to that shining city on a hill our next president better be someone who is prepared to walk the walk in increasing our entrepreneurial base and defending the sovereignty of the United States.

HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
