SORT BY Relevancy
President Barack Obama called for sweeping tax increases Monday in a budget proposal that dropped any quest for fiscal grand bargains with Congress, but also laid out narrower domestic priorities that may appeal to Republicans.His proposal for more than $1 trillion in new tax measures over the coming decade was immediately declared a nonstarter by Republicans, who also criticized the plan’s lack of new measures to curtail entitlement spending, the biggest contributor to federal deficits, his request for a 4.5% increase in military spending.WSJ
The Treasury Department estimates that the proposals would raise $210 billion over ten
years by increasing the top tax rate on longterm capital gains from 24.2 percent to 28 percent and taxing unrealized capital gains at death. A new financial fee would raise another $110 billion.Part of that revenue would finance a package of middleclass tax cuts ($175 billion) and retargeted education tax benefits would cost about $50 billion.In addition, some of the revenue would finance new spending initiatives for early childhood education and community college,
which are not considered here.
Beclowning is unbecoming for an American President. But for Barack Obama the clown suit fits fine. Our enemies are laughing; we are not.
A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.
When Obama took office, he had a dazzling 67 percent approval to only 13 percent disapproval. Only one in five disapproved of the president and most of that can be chalked up to natural ideological differences and the fact that he belongs to a different political party. Now, after he won his second election, he has a dismal 40% approval and 52% disapproval. Results matter.
This cannot be emphasized strongly enough: the American people are not “racists.” They are good and decent people who have lost their patience with the Obama administration’s blame games, lack of accountability, You can only smear your opponents with baseless charges for so long before people wise up and realize they’re being played.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* President Obama says that America is not at war with Islam.
* State Department says that jobs can stop Muslim extremists.
* President Obama accuses Israel of distorting his love for Iran.
The Presidency! Hear me In and Out, every day, on what can and will make us better, good and well. To get there requires attention, accountability, responsibility and caring about a lot on your part.
I offer to serve as President. Where is the equality in ethnicity, gender, law, living, opportunity, taxes, work.... I can lead us and deliver our expectations. I can do this by being your voice and partner in the White House. You have been the silent lobby for so long. Enough of this, use you write-in ballot and not be trumped by the money and say of others
I am Curtis Clinton, vying to be elected President, without Politics, Political Parties and without campaign financing. That’s why you don’t know of me or hear about me. Try getting on Television or in the newspapers if you are not someone. So what’s this. Look what Politics has done to us, our United States and the world. If you are happy and complacent with the results and trends of Politicians, don't listen to me. If, on the other hand, you are among those who are swept along by the tide of one or both Political Party Politics and mistaken decisions and find yourself and issues swept under the rug, don’t be smug any longer. Here’s the other thing: ‘Not On You Dime’. I am the closet thing person to being ‘the real free lunch’, maybe the last of its kind. You see, I am not funded by campaign contributions. I am unfunded and doing this without money. I want the job of being President of the United States so much, that I am forced to try doing it with no money.
Barack Obama Had a Really Terrible YearISIS, Ferguson, the Senate, Ukraine, Ebola, border kids. Really, this was a pretty awful sixth year for the president. Not that he's acting like it.
You can make a compelling case that 2014 was the worst year for President Obama since, well, the year before. And, in fact, the president spent much of this year trying to recover from some body blows he took in the final months of 2013, when, in short order, Congress rebuffed him on Syria and the federal health care exchange imploded.
The Broadcast Title says it all. Do you want the truth. Do you want a honest person in the White House. Listen in. I counter with truth.
The Broadcast Title says it all
What did President Obama say about the State of the Union? We will try to think through what he said and what is meant by what he said... And, as usual, welcome your imput and impressions of President Obamas speech last night.
Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
