Donald Trump tells it like it is

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Don’t look now, but Donald Trump is in the GOP presidential race. And he’s no joke. In the latest poll he’s in second place in New Hampshire. So there’s no avoiding the 10-ton guerrilla in the room. Let’s discuss “The Donald.”

I know. I know. “Trump is flawed,” the critics say. “He is a clown.” “He is a buffoon.” “He’s divorced — twice.” “He has business bankruptcies.” Yes, all true. And Ronald Reagan was a failed B-movie actor who played second fiddle to a chimp. Heck, Reagan had a failed Vegas lounge act that closed in a week. Reagan was rejected by United Artists executives to play the part of a president. Two years later, he was governor of California. Then he went onto become the man polls show is regarded as our greatest modern president. Could Trump be “Reagan — Part Duex?”

Yes, Trump is flawed. But, ironically, he may be the perfect candidate at the perfect time. Why? Because he says whatever is on his mind. He has no filters. He doesn’t care about political correctness. He doesn’t answer to anyone: not donors, not handlers, not consultants, not pollsters and — God bless him — not the media. Trump is his own man. Trump says whatever he wants because he is worth $9 billion.

The Donald doesn’t need any donations. He doesn’t need the support of fat-cat donors or multinational corporations like the other GOP candidates. He doesn’t need scandalous donations (aka bribes) from foreign governments like Hillary Clinton. Hillary is greedy. We know she thinks of herself as broke. Her hubby Bill says he’s still worried about “paying the bills.” Desperate people do desperate things. But Trump has $9 billion dollars. He never has to do desperate things. He has 9 billion reasons to say whatever he wants — and let the chips fall where they may.

Trump is free to become Bullworth

Remember that 1998 movie starring Warren Beatty as U.S. Sen. Bullworth? He didn’t give a damn what people thought anymore, so he said whatever he wanted. He told the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Bullworth stood at the pulpit of a black church and told black voters that the Democratic Party and their politicians claim to want to help you, make all kinds of promises, but they are all lying to get your vote. Then after the election, they’re nowhere to be found. They never keep those promises. Why? “Because you don’t donate enough money,” Bullworth admitted. “What’s the proof?” Bullworth asked. “Half your kids are unemployed; the other half are in prison.” The truth hasn’t changed since 1998.

Bullworth dared to tell the truth. And the people loved it! Not only was Bullworth re-elected, he became an instant media sensation and the shocking favorite of voters for president. Honesty is that refreshing. Can real-life imitate art? We are about to find out.

Trump is the real-life Bullworth. When voters listen to the raw truth of Trump next to the “mainstream, establishment candidates” who tell lie after lie to get elected, The Donald will shine by comparison. Suddenly, it will all become clear: The lies and BS aren’t working. The other candidates are scamming you, bribing you, placating you. It’s time for someone willing to tell it like it is. It’s time for a real-life Bullworth.

Maybe, just maybe, Trump will admit out loud the damage Barack Obama has done to our economy with his socialist policies. It’s time for a politician to ask what socialism did for Greece, or Spain, or Italy, or France, or miserable Cuba, or Venezuela with food and toilet paper shortages? And what have more than 50 straight years of Democratic leadership done for bankrupt, crime-ridden hellholes like Detroit, Chicago or Baltimore? I’m betting Trump is the guy willing to tell the truth.

Maybe he’ll admit there is no recovery. It’s all a lie, a mirage. The numbers are gamed. It’s all created with fake money printing by the Fed, artificially low interest rates and half the country being propped up by government checks.

We already know The Donald will dare to tell the raw truth about the border and illegal immigration. He did it in his presidential announcement speech. He said what no other Republican has the chutzpah to say: The border is wide open; and the illegals flowing across will destroy middle-class jobs and drown our nation under a tsunami of welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and the costs for cops, courts and prison. He actually said many of these illegals are not nice people; they are criminals being dumped on us by their own governments. We’re so dumb we accept them. Trump finally admitted the worst-kept secret in American politics: Illegal immigration is bad for the economy and the country.

Maybe he’ll also admit that our open border will soon lead to a terrible terrorist attack. Maybe he’ll ask out loud: “What kind of president would purposely leave the border open?”

Maybe he’ll admit the taxes aren’t “historically low,” as Obama claims. The taxes are, in fact, “too damn high.” High taxes are killing entrepreneurship and jobs. If billion-dollar corporations are so damaged by the 35 percent corporate tax rate that they are forced to escape America with “inversions,” then why isn’t any politician admitting the 43.8 percent top individual tax rate is damaging taxpayers and killing even more jobs? Maybe the average taxpayer needs an inversion, too! I’m betting Trump is the guy to say it.

Maybe he’ll admit public schools are failing and dumbing-down our children. Your kids are not learning. They are not prepared to compete in the global marketplace. And the problem isn’t money. We already spend too much on education. The problem is teachers unions and bad teachers who can’t be fired.

Maybe he’ll admit we have too many government employees and they are paid way too much. Their obscene pensions are bankrupting cities, counties, states and our entire federal government. Those pensions can never be paid in full. Someone needs to admit that. I’m betting Trump will be that guy.

Maybe he’ll admit there are no quality jobs because of thousands of pages of new regulations, and Obamacare’s 2.1 million words of regulations, and insane EPA mandates, and thousands of more “climate change” regulations coming down the pike.

Trump has already bravely pointed out that black unemployment is twice as high as white unemployment, thereby proving Obama has been a terrible president for the same black Americans he claims to support.

Maybe Trump will point out we have absolutely no plan to stop ISIS and that it is winning.

Maybe Trump will point out that Obama’s policies are bad for Israel and that Jewish voters are crazy to support Obama.

Maybe, just maybe, America is ready to hear the truth. And Trump is just the man to tell it like it is.

Will Trump win the presidency? The jury is still out. But he will be a breath of fresh air. He will wake the voters up. A real-life Bullworth has arrived. Trump will certainly make the 2016 race for president fun. I can’t wait.

Trans-Pacific Ponzi and the murder of the middle class

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. President Obama and our wonderful government call their favorite new bill “TPP” for Trans-Pacific Partnership. But it’s really a bipartisan Ponzi scheme. It should be called “Trans-Pacific Ponzi.” It’s a trillion-dollar rip-off of the American people and American workers. Obama wants “fast track authority” because he wants to put the end of America as we know it on a fast track.

Trust me; neither TPP or TPA (Trade Promotion Authority, i.e., fast track authority for the president) are dead. Like Freddy Krueger of “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” they will keep coming back from the dead because the billionaires and billion-dollar multinational corporations want TPP. The powers that be won’t give up. They will not rest until it passes, by hook or by crook. And since they are all crooks, they’ll use any means necessary to get it passed.

My book “The Murder of the Middle Class” describes the unholy alliance of the socialists and communists like Obama and the crony capitalist corporations that own both political parties. The TPP is the perfect example of the murder of the middle class in one devastating treaty. Passing it requires secrecy and fraud carried out by both Obama and his partners in the Republican Party. Fraud and treachery make for strange bedfellows.

The worst part isn’t even what’s in it — and it certainly contains a toxic brew that will destroy millions of middle-class jobs. More on that later. But the worst part is how it’s been hidden from the people by Obama and the Republican leadership, working as a tag team like this is a WWE match.

Do you remember when Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it?”

We all know how that turned out. Obamacare is killing jobs, dramatically increasing the national debt and bankrupting the middle class with gigantic increases in health insurance premiums. That’s precisely why no one wanted you to read it, study it or take the time to analyze it.

These disastrous billion-dollar bills need to be hidden and then passed quickly before anyone has a chance to understand their implications. They are written by lobbyists and lawyers and never read by the very politicians voting for them. It’s all about dollars. Corporations and fat cat donors make billions of dollars, and the politicians collect millions of dollars in legal bribes (i.e., campaign contributions) and million-dollar lobbying jobs after they retire. That was the storyline of Obamacare.

The exact same scenario is playing out with TPP. Do you know what’s in the details? I don’t. Neither do any of the Republicans voting for it. They openly admit it. Members of Congress need “security clearance” to be “allowed” to read it.

Leading GOP TPP supporter Sen. Orrin Hatch admitted he doesn’t fully know what’s in it.

GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise and GOP Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions both admitted they haven’t read it.

Sen. Paul Ryan channeled Pelosi when he said: “It’s classified. You’ll find out what’s in it after we pass it and it’s declassified.”

Are you kidding me? The GOP now thinks its own voters are as dumb and ignorant as Democrats? Ryan thinks he should be allowed to pass bills the citizens aren’t “allowed” to read? Really? Then it’s time for the citizens to remove Ryan from office.

Folks, Obamacare was 2,000 pages of legalese that no average citizen could understand. That was the tip-off that it was a rip-off. But TPP makes Obamacare look open, honest and transparent. TPP is kept under lock and key. No citizen has access. No citizen has a clue what’s in it. Only senators and congressmen with security clearance can walk into a room in the Capitol building to read it — alone. Then they are required to leave without making copies or taking notes.

Does this sound strange to you? Does it sound surreal? Does it sound like it’s good for the people? To me, it sounds like a scam, a Ponzi scheme. Only criminals want their victims to sign contracts without reading them. It’s quite clear: The ruling class and the corporate elite think we are serfs, and they are our masters.

At this point, I don’t care what’s in it. If they don’t want us to read it, if Congress thinks it should pass it without knowing what’s in it, then our job is to burn it down, stick a knife in its heart, stab it until it can never again rear its ugly head.

But what is actually in it? Well, Wikileaks has leaked small parts of it. It appears it is a killer of American sovereignty. The TPP appoints a commission of soulless corporate lawyers with sweeping authority to override U.S. laws and our Constitution.

That commission will have sweeping power over U.S. trade, labor, immigration, environmental and commerce regulations. In other words, foreign and corporate powers will be running the United States. Unelected foreign lawyers representing multinational corporations will have more power than American citizens and even our politicians. And America gets only one vote on this commission. We’ll have no more power or importance over rules regulating our lives than Brunei or South Korea.

How does that sound to you?

But I don’t need to know all that. All I need to know is it’s supported by Obama. Heck, it’s been nicknamed “Obamatrade.” If Obama created it, it must be a toxic brew of onerous job-killing government regulation, insane job-killing climate change rules, illegal immigration amnesty that opens our borders to the poor and dependent of the world (i.e., future Democratic voters), and higher minimum wages that will drive small businesses out of business and guarantee millions more jobs are shipped overseas (where they can pay employees pennies on the dollar).

Obama doesn’t support free trade. He supports Big Brother government and the murder of the middle class. He loves to fool and defraud you by using cute, cuddly names. The bill that made your healthcare unaffordable was named the Affordable Care Act. Now the bill that destroys America’s free trade economy is disguised as “free trade.”

For once, the unions are right. This is a treaty that will destroy good-paying American jobs. It will destroy middle-class lives. It will make the American dream unaffordable. It’s time to rise up and kill it. And if the GOP won’t listen to its own voters and supporters, then it’s time to kill the GOP.

What just happened in Las Vegas will destroy America

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. You know the saying, “What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas.” Well, it’s not true. What just happened in Las Vegas and the entire state of Nevada is what’s happening across the country. Nevada Republican leaders are the stupidest Republicans in America. Not just stupid, but traitors, too, and liars. They committed fraud upon their own voters. But wait: It’s coming to the rest of you, too. What just happened in Nevada will destroy this great country. If Republicans are this bad, then there is no one left to save us.

This is precisely why America is in such trouble. First, because all the politicians have one goal in life: Spend as much money as possible. And, of course, their attitude is: “Who cares? It’s other people’s money.”

Second, all the politicians are bought and paid for by giant billion-dollar corporations, lobbyists and lawyers.

And the third problem is there is no competition. There are only two parties: a moderate Democratic Party and a communist party filled with radical Marxists who want to destroy the economy, kill capitalism and redistribute wealth. Unfortunately, the Republicans are the moderate Democrats. And the Democrats have become out and out socialists and communists. There is no party that cares about the citizens, taxpayers or U.S. Constitution.

Want to understand how bad it really is? Look no further than the Nevada GOP. Like the rest of America, the Nevada GOP enjoyed a landslide victory last November. We won everything: governor, lieutenant governor, all five constitutional offices, the State Senate and the State Assembly. This was the first time the GOP controlled all of that since the 1920s. The voters spoke loudly. They wanted smaller government, lower taxes and less spending. Not only that, but a ballot referendum supporting a business margins tax on corporations was voted down by a 3-1 margin. That’s amazing: 3-1. You ever hear of a defeat like that? This was the anti-tax, anti-big government sweep of a lifetime. Historic. Revolutionary.

You’d think the people who won would get the message, right? Wrong.

So what did the Nevada GOP do with such a magnificent mandate? They rewarded the same conservative anti-tax voters who had just given them a mandate to hold down the size of government, spending and taxes with a plan for the biggest tax increase in Nevada history. Yes, I said tax increase. And with the help of a Republican Senate and Republican Assembly, it passed last week. Our business taxes just grew by $1.5 billion. Worse, this isn’t an old-fashioned business tax on profits. This is a tax on revenue. So companies that break even or lose money now owe massive taxes. Many of my friends are now making plans to move their businesses out of the state.

Let’s make sure you get this straight. We elected Republicans in a landslide to control every office in Nevada and voted down new taxes by a 3-1 margin just so Republicans could hand us the biggest tax increase in history and dramatically expand the size of government.

Then, in a sign of pure insanity or delusion, Republican legislators rubbed salt in the wound in the newspaper (the Las Vegas Review-Journal). Republican leaders gloated over the massive record-setting tax increase they just passed. One of them proudly stated, “We proved Republicans can pass tax increases.” The Republican politicians of this state are without a doubt the stupidest Republicans in America. Let’s examine honestly and openly what they have done. Here are the five sins of the Nevada GOP. And trust me: They are coming to a state near you.

No. 1: Stupidity

It’s not a crime to support higher taxes. There is a fair and honest debate. If you support raising taxes, you have every right to your opinion. But you need to switch parties to the Democratic Party. If you stand for raising my taxes, what makes you different than a Democrat? Who needs Republicans to pass the biggest tax increase in Nevada history? We could have easily elected Democrats to do that.

The Nevada GOP’s response to a massive historic landslide was to do exactly what Democrats would have done. And they’re bragging about it? They’re so dumb they don’t even understand their own party’s platform? Or maybe, like Nancy Pelosi, they have to pass the bill so they can read what’s in it. They are clearly either confused, delusional, in the wrong party or completely misunderstood the landslide that they won — or they’re frauds and con men.

No. 2: Ignorance

In business and politics, branding is everything. If people don’t understand or remember your brand, you’re out of business. The Democratic Party brand is “tax and spend” and increase the size of government. The GOP brand is lower taxes, less spending and reducing the size of government. These are facts. They are written in each party’s platform: their own personal constitution. What the Nevada GOP just did was suicide.

They are morons. When they’re alone at night, do they press sharp objects against their skin? Do they cut themselves? Because they are clearly mentally ill. This is how one puts oneself out of business. Their brand is lower taxes. They won with that brand in a landslide, so they decided to vote for the biggest tax increase in history. And they thought that made sense? They thought that no one would notice?

No. 3: Betrayal

Worse and even dumber, they betrayed the trust of their own base: their most loyal supporters. They’ve violated the most important rules of business:

  • First, the customer is always right.
  • Second, if your customer is wrong, refer back to the first rule.

They just stabbed their own biggest supporters in the back. Name any business in America where any smart businessman screws his own base of most-loyal customers? This would be like a hip-hop urban radio station deciding to play country music for its urban audience that hates country music. Bizarre. Result? They’d be out of business within days — if their radio station weren’t burned to the ground by angry mobs. If you doubt me, see Baltimore. Lesson learned? Never bite the hand of your own customer. Only the smug establishment GOP could be this stupid.

No. 4: Fraud

Worst of all, these GOP leaders are bragging about committing fraud. If they wanted to pass the largest tax increase in history, why didn’t they campaign on that idea? Why didn’t they say: “I am proud to be running as a Republican to raise your taxes. I promise to pass the biggest tax increase in Nevada history.” But instead they lied and misrepresented their agenda. Why? It’s because they could never have been electing telling the truth. Isn’t that the definition of fraud, of bait and switch? They lied to their own customers about their own product and what it does.

Here’s the big question. Who paid them? Because anyone can see this is about bribery. This is a clear-cut case of scandal and corruption. Someone has been promised millions in a Swiss bank account, or million-dollar lobbyist jobs, or million-dollar corporate jobs. That is the only possible reason these Republican leaders are so smug, so giddy, at the idea they’ve just lied to and backstabbed their own voters. Someone is celebrating the prospect of being set for life.

No. 5: Never miss an opportunity to shoot yourselves in the foot

Nevada is next door to California. The People’s Republic of California now has the highest taxes in the nation. Rich people, middle-class people and small-business owners are leaving in droves. Wait! It gets worse: Californians are so dumb they just voted to give Medicaid to illegal immigrants. California is both insane and about to go bankrupt. The state has racked up more than $200 billion in debt. Within five years, the state will be unable to pay bills. They will need a federal bailout. Everyone with money and common sense is making plans to leave.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to showcase Nevada as the perfect alternative? Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to showcase us as the lowest-tax state in the nation, as the state that protects taxpayers and business owners? Who would be dumb enough to ruin that brand at this perfect moment in time where we can capture a large portion of the tax refugees living right next door? Nevada could have gotten all the “makers” — the rich people and business owners who give to society and pay into the system. And the “takers” would have stayed in California. Sounds like a brilliant business plan to me. But we blew it. The answer to who could be that dumb is the Nevada Republican leadership.

Don’t elections have consequences? Aren’t the winners supposed to reward their supporters? Aren’t the winners supposed to impose their agenda? I’d be arguing this if the GOP won in a landslide and kept the status quo. But they went much further: They passed the biggest tax increase in history. What did the voters get? They got screwed by their own party. Bernie Madoff has nothing on the Republican governor and leaders of Nevada.

You have every right to believe in higher taxes and dramatically increased spending. But then you have to switch to the Democratic Party. You can’t be a Republican who opposes the central tenet of your own platform. That’s like opening a kosher restaurant specializing in pork and shellfish. That’s like being the chairman of the largest feminist organization in America and filling your board of directors with men who abuse women. You’ve committed fraud and backstabbed your own best customers. And for that you will all pay a big price in the next election. I promise you.

Proof we have a suicide bomber in the White House

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I told you so. Forget ISIS. Forget al-Qaida. Forget Vladimir Putin. Forget China. The worst threat to America is Barack Hussein Obama.

I’ve screamed from the highest mountains for almost seven long years now that we have a suicide bomber in the White House. Obama is divebombing our nation’s economy the same way that the Germanwings airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago.

Except this isn’t one plane and a couple hundred souls. Obama is taking the entire American economy and all of us down with him.

I’ve told everyone and anyone who would listen for almost seven years that Obama is following the exact plan he learned as my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. The plan is called “Cloward-Piven.”

The plan is simple: To destroy capitalism and “American exceptionalism,” you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to a halt; full-time jobs are killed; businesses fail in record numbers; the middle class is murdered financially; the debt implodes; and the economy is overwhelmed.

Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.

To make this plan work, Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.

How does this end? According to Cloward-Piven, a majority of Americans wind up dependent on government; they vote out of desperation for whatever political party promises to keep the checks coming or, better yet, expand the checks. Then slowly, like boiling a frog that doesn’t realize what’s happening until he’s dead, capitalism dies. The very same people destroyed by government are now dependent on government to survive; they beg government to save them. And that opens the door to a Big Brother socialist economic system.

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.

You don’t have to believe me. Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter GDP growth was negative.

This is proof that the plan is working. The U.S. economy is in reverse. We are in quicksand, and we’re all drowning. Obama is taking us down like a suicide bomber.

These aren’t opinions. This is a fact. Now you just have to decide based on the evidence of a dying economy after almost seven years under Obama.

Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot, dangerous to himself and everyone around him, or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism? Because it’s either one or the other.

Here are the facts. The first quarter gross domestic product, which is the measurement of our economy, was just revised on Friday to -0.07 percent. This number is a disaster.

But this isn’t some aberration or outlier. This is the entire Obama presidency. Obama’s seven first quarters as president are at a combined average of -0.43 percent. Obama is the only president in the history of America’s recorded economic measurement to accomplish this.

Let me repeat: This is the worst seven-year record in the history of America’s recorded GDP.

Obama is also the only president in history to have produced four separate first quarters that were negative. We started measuring GDP in 1947. Obama is certainly one of a kind: a trendsetter. He is setting records for disaster and futility never before imagined in the greatest country in world history. And guess what? We’re all going along for the ride. I hope you buckled your seat belt.

Yet no one appears willing to say out loud and on the record that something is very wrong, that this isn’t normal.

No one is willing to say this isn’t possible to do by mistake. No one is willing to suggest there is a madman — a suicide bomber — at the controls, taking our economy and country down just like that German pilot divebombed that plane into the ground two months ago.

Want more proof? The average first quarter GDP since measurements began in 1947 was 4 percent:

  • Under Harry Truman, it was 4.5 percent.
  • Under Dwight D. Eisenhower, it was 3.2 percent.
  • Under John F. Kennedy, it was 4.9 percent.
  • Under Lyndon B. Johnson, it was 8.3 percent.
  • Under Richard Nixon, it was 5.3 percent.
  • Under Gerald Ford, it was 2.3 percent.
  • Under Jimmy Carter, it was 2.4 percent.
  • Under Ronald Reagan, it was 2.1 percent (and that was because Reagan inherited disaster from Carter).
  • Under George H.W. Bush, it was 2.9 percent.
  • Under Bill Clinton, it was 2.6 percent.
  • Under George W. Bush, it was 1.7 percent.

Under Obama, here are the seven first quarters:

  • -5.4 percent
  • 1.7 percent
  • -1.5 percent
  • 3 percent
  • 7 percent
  • -2.1 percent
  • -0.07 percent

Let me repeat: That’s the worst record in recorded history. That’s the only negative average in recorded history. That’s the only time we’ve had four negative first quarters in history.

What’s the excuse? Winter? Cold weather in the first quarter? Really? So America didn’t have winter under Truman or JFK or LBJ? Winter is a new phenomenon that only affects Obama’s first quarter? Even more compelling, don’t Canada, Russia and China have winter in the first quarter, too? So how come their GDP growth isn’t affected by winter?

Here’s the thing, folks. Economists are saying the second quarter doesn’t look much better. Last I checked, there is no winter in April, May and June. So why is this quarter off to the same kind of start? Why did all of this economic decline happen while gas prices plummeted? Economists predict a “windfall” for consumers because of lower gas prices. Yet the economy divebombed, and consumer spending stalled — even with cheap gas prices.

It’s clear “who” and “what” is to blame. The who is a suicide bomber in the White House named Barack Obama. The what is Cloward-Piven. Obama has exploded spending, entitlements, dependency, regulations and debt to destroy capitalism and the U.S. economy. He has set world records in each of those categories: the most spending ever, the most entitlement spending ever, the most regulations and cost of regulations ever, the most debt ever created in world history. Cloward-Piven.

The facts are in. The results are in. No one could be this stupid. No one could be this ignorant. No one could produce a record this bad by mistake. It isn’t possible. We clearly have a suicide bomber in the White House.

Update: The second quarter under Obama was 1.7 percent, not 7 percent. The editing error has been fixed.

Conservative admits ‘global warming’ is real

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I admit it. Global warming is real and is warping Americans’ brains. Either that or Democrats are really, really dumb. They voted for Barack Obama … twice. They think our economy is in “recovery.” Now they are getting ready to vote for Hillary Clinton. It must be global warming.

What else explains the stupidity, idiocy and delusion? What else explains the self-destructive behavior? What else explains Obama refusing to lift a finger to stop ISIS, in denial there is a problem,  after ISIS has already taken over half of Syria and Iraqi city after city, headed for Baghdad, while Obama keeps repeating the massive lie: “I have a plan.” A plan? Obama won’t even admit the “IS” in ISIS stands for Islamic State. Win the war? We aren’t even allowed to call a Muslim a Muslim! Can you imagine in World War II if we weren’t allowed to call Germans Nazis?

Your typical Democrat voter is either an idiot or maybe global warming is real and turning their brains to mush.

Every Democrat in the country screamed in shock and dismay when George W. Bush added $4 trillion in debt, yet they don’t see a thing, hear a thing or say a thing about Obama adding $8 trillion — and by the end of his second term $12 trillion, three times more.

Has global warming turned them all into brain-dead zombies?

Clinton erased 32,000 emails, promising they were none of our business. She wiped her server clean and refuses to discuss it. Her Democratic supporters say, “Nothing to see here,” and echo her famous, “What difference does it make?” Surely, they can’t be that stupid!

It must be global warming causing them to bury their empty heads in the sand.

Hillary, while secretary of state, collected $2 billion for the Clinton Foundation, mostly from foreign governments. Then those same countries were awarded government contracts and awards. Anyone else would be tried for treason and bribery. A Republican doing the same thing would be worried about spending years in prison, not the White House.

Obama and Hillary covered up the Benghazi scandal — arms dealing, a terrorist attack and murders — to win the 2012 election. What do her Democrat supporters say about all this? “What difference does it make?”

It can only be global warming hollowing out the brains of Democrats.

Hillary took millions of dollars in donations from governments that stone, whip and jail women for “the crime” of being rape victims. Yet she claims to be a hero for women’s rights and that Republicans are at war with women. What do Democrats say? “Right on, Hillary!”

Only global warming causing severe mental illness could explain this.

Hillary says she “fights for the middle class” while demanding $250,000 per speech, plus a private jet and the presidential suite at the fanciest hotel in town, while giving speeches at colleges where middle-class kids will graduate with massive debt and no job prospects.

Then she complains about CEO compensation while collecting $30 million in the past 16 months for selling her influence as secretary of state. Yet Democrats and young progressives ignore the blatant corruption and hypocrisy. Surely, they aren’t that stupid?

It must be due to global warming that has melted their brains to the point they couldn’t spell “cat” if we spotted them the “C” and the “A.” They just walk forward like zombies, eyes looking up through their skulls, mumbling: “Hillary, Hillary, Hillary!”

Obama and John Kerry call “global warming” and “climate change” America’s biggest threat, worse than terrorism. They say we must reconfigure the entire U.S. economy and kill coal and oil to become a “green energy nation” while ignoring the fact that the green energy sham has destroyed the EU, left the continent in economic collapse, killed millions of jobs and produced youth unemployment rates of 55 percent or higher in “green countries” like Spain.

The media never mentions the “inconvenient fact” that the results in the EU are so bad even socialist leaders now publicly admit that green energy kills jobs and bankrupts nations. Nor do they mention that while the EU has scuttled the greenhouse gas emissions standards that killed economies, Obama demands we institute those same standards in America. Insanity.

How can it be that the mainstream media doesn’t think to mention any of this? How could Democrats not notice the tragedy in Spain, Greece, Italy or France? Green energy saves the planet while it destroys the economy. So you’re broke, living in misery, starving. And you’re breathing the same dirty air. Because no matter how many jobs you kill in the interest of saving the planet, China and India just keep doubling their pollution. So you’ve accomplished nothing — except ruining your economy. No one thinks to mention this?

Global warming is the only possible reason this is happening. It must be like heroin combined with crack cocaine and crystal meth. There must be a genetic weakness within the DNA of Democrats and the mainstream media.

Obamacare is a proven failure. How do I know? The two most liberal, brain-dead states where everyone loves Obama and big government have given up: Vermont and Hawaii. Vermont just closed its entire healthcare experiment. It went bankrupt. Obamacare exchanges across America are going broke – including in Hawaii. If Obamacare can’t work in Hawaii with a small population and $205 million in taxpayer subsidies, it can’t work anywhere.

Then, there are cities like Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore that have been run 100 percent by Democrats and progressive policies for 50 straight years. All are bankrupt, abandoned, violent, crime-ridden hellholes. Residents, in all but the most affluent neighborhoods, live in misery. After pouring billions into them, their schools are a disaster. Drugs are sold in broad daylight. No one can walk the streets at night; violent animals rule. But Democrats want to use the exact same policies to “save” America.

Global warming has to be the cause, and it must turn Democrats into brain-dead zombies.

America, under Obama, has become a low-wage, part-time economy with close to zero gross domestic product growth. Obama has presided over a record 40+ straight months of 46 million or more citizens on food stamps — a permanent underclass living in misery, just like in Cuba, Venezuela and Greece. Why would anyone be surprised? Obama is using the exact same progressive policies as the socialists in Cuba, Venezuela and Greece. But Democrats don’t notice.

I can only think global warming is the leading cause of blindness and deafness in Democrats.

Something has obviously dumbed down the young people. They are clueless that the Obama plan is printing trillions of dollars in new, fake money, thereby forcing the stock market to record heights. That makes Obama’s biggest donors wealthy beyond their wildest imagination, but leaves the average middle-class kid with the bill: a crushing $250,000 of debt. They are graduating from college with massive debt and no opportunity for a decent job — to live in their parents’ basement in record numbers. Yet college grads vote Democrat because they get free contraception and abortion.

Global warming must be especially deadly to young brains, leaving holes the size of manhole covers.

My fellow Jewish Americans don’t notice Obama’s hatred of Israel and that every action proves he is on side of radical Muslims. “He is Israel’s best friend,” say delusional Jewish Democrats.

But Israelis know the truth. They see Obama as the worst American president by a landslide. It isn’t even close: 63 percent versus 16 percent for second place (Jimmy Carter). Forget global warming. Israelis see Obama as the biggest threat to their existence.  

The results of this poll prove American Jews are living in a make-believe world of rainbows and unicorns. It has to be global warming.

The Amtrak crash proves anyone not admitting government is a failure is a complete, blithering idiot. Amtrak has lost more than $40 billion, and its results are still getting worse. So Democrats demand more government spending on Amtrak. Only a zombie or lobotomy victim would decide more spending will solve the problem after 40 years of failure, incompetence and waste of taxpayer money.

It must be the global warming because anyone who wants to waste more money on Amtrak also believes in the tooth fairy and the Loch Ness monster.

Something has created brain-dead zombies that ignore the obvious connection between Obama’s all-time record levels of spending, debt, taxes and regulations — and the fact that for the first time in the history of America, more businesses fail each day than open each day. Then those same zombies conclude: “I have the answer. Let’s add even more regulations.”

It must be global warming hollowing out their heads like a pumpkin on Halloween. Come to think of it, Democrats do have that same kind of smile as a jack-o-lantern.

Democrats don’t seem to notice the fact that Obama spent a billion dollars of your money to build and fix the defective Obamacare websites — money given to foreign companies, one of them run by Michelle Obama’s Princeton Black Alumni Association college classmate. That scandal alone should have led to Obama’s impeachment. But Democrats were too busy watching “Dancing with the Stars.”

Democrats don’t seem to notice health insurance premiums and co-pays have doubled and tripled for middle-class Americans (the group paying the bill) or that inflation is back, caused by massive jumps in healthcare spending.

No one seems to care, and the media don’t see a story.

They are living in the dark and silence at the same time.

Paul Krugman of The New York Times just wrote about the lies and fraud committed by George W. Bush over the Iraq war. Yet he doesn’t notice Obama committed massive fraud when he sold Obamacare by saying, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it,” and, “If you like your doctor, you can keep him,” and, “Obamacare will lower prices,” and, “Obamacare will lower the deficit.” Krugman never saw any of that.

It has to be global warming. It turns even Nobel Prize winners into idiots foaming at the mouth.

Liberals like Krugman hate bullying. It’s their cause célèbre. But they didn’t notice that Obama used the IRS in a widespread criminal conspiracy to target, intimidate, bankrupt and bully his critics, while trying to silencing free speech. Obama makes Richard Nixon look like Mother Teresa. Obama is the “mother of all bullies.”

Finally, liberals like Krugman don’t notice that progressive policies have turned Cuba into the country that time forgot, forever frozen in 1950. Those same progressive policies have led to food and toilet paper shortages in Venezuela. Those same progressive policies have left hospitals in Greece without painkillers or gauze.

Liberals don’t notice that big government, big spending, big taxes, big regulations, big unions and free healthcare cripple every nation and bankrupt every economy they touch.

Those are the same progressive policies that Obama has used to damage the U.S. economy beyond repair. We are in slow-motion disaster headed toward the end of America. The people who support and defend Obama and Hillary are clearly brain dead.

It must be super-charged rays of sun burning holes in their minds. Global warming must be shrinking brains to pea-size. It’s clear now: Democrats are being lobotomized.

Global warming must be real.

Either that or Democrats are so dumb and blind they shouldn’t be let out of the house without diapers and a security guard.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America and save us from the brain-dead zombies in the Democratic Party.

Is America ready for Donald Trump as president?

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I’m not endorsing anyone for president (yet). But I am on the record as saying Scott Walker has the perfect record: as a governor with a proven record of success; as the man who stood up to the money and manpower of every union in America three times in four years; as the tough guy who stood up to riots at the capital, protests at his home and death threats against his wife and children and held firm and reformed government employee pensions; as the taxpayer hero who turned a $3 billion deficit into a $1 billion surplus and gave the money back to taxpayers.

With that record, Walker has the toughness and gravitas to win the presidency in 2016. I’m also a fan of Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson — all great candidates. I’ve never been a fan of Chris Christie in the past, but I happen to think the income tax plan he just unveiled is fantastic. It would turn around the U.S. economy. It would inspire business owners like me. It would create millions of jobs.

The fact is the GOP has an incredible array of dynamic, diverse candidates. The Democrats have one bloated, entitled, corrupt, past-due candidate, who is a walking scandal about to implode. I predict Hillary Clinton will never win the nomination. She is dead in the water, but delusional Democratic voters refuse to accept reality — yet. The future looks bright for the GOP — if they can find the right candidate.

But there is a wild card on the horizon. Critics laugh at Donald Trump. They give him no chance. They say he’s too wild and unconventional. They say he’s not serious. Well, it appears he is serious. He has put “Celebrity Apprentice” on hold. That’s a $60 million sign of seriousness. Trump has already built a formidable campaign organization in the early GOP primary states.

Don’t look now, but it appears “The Donald” is about to officially announce he’s entering the GOP presidential race.

So let’s debunk the critics and naysayers and look at reasons why Trump as president is no joke.

Does “The Donald” have a high opinion of himself, even to the point of sounding egotistical? You bet! As one of America’s most successful CEOs, he has earned that right. Find me a high-level CEO who isn’t egotistical. Warren Buffett? Bill Gates? Steve Wynn? Sir Richard Branson? Mark Cuban? They all have high opinions of themselves. Those egos have served them well. That’s how you become a member of the most exclusive club of billionaire business moguls on a planet with more than 6 billion people — most of them mired in poverty.

Does Trump say exactly what’s on his mind? You bet! Millions of Americans who are sick of lying politicians and “political correctness” will find that refreshing. Here are just a few of his latest statements:

If you, like me, agree with this kind of straight talk — which most politicians (especially wimpy establishment Republican politicians) are deathly afraid of saying — then it may be time to seriously consider Trump for president.

The president has to be a leader. Trump is certainly that. The president has to be a motivational speaker and inspire people through the media. Trump has proven his ability to do that.

But the primary role of the president of the United States is to be CEO of the largest, most diverse bureaucracy of the most powerful nation in the world. And what does a CEO do? He hires and he fires. He hires the best people he can find and doesn’t hesitate to fire them when they fail. And we all know that no one does that better than “The Donald.”

Look at our government over the past eight years under Obama: the Benghazi scandal; the IRS scandal; the Fast and Furious scandal; the Veteran Affairs scandal; the lies, misrepresentations and fraud of Obamacare; the scandal of spending $1 billion on building and fixing a defective Obamacare website; Middle East miscalculations; the failure to stop ISIS; open borders; illegal immigration invasion; $8 trillion in deadly new debt; and all-time records for new taxes, spending, entitlements and job-killing regulations.

How did all these disasters happen? The wrong people or incompetent people were put in charge. Then, after the results proved just how incredibly incompetent or what failures they were, how many people responsible for these disasters were ever fired? Exactly zero! Even in the VA scandal where vets were put on waiting lists to die, no one was fired.

Trump would have brought each executive, official and bureaucrat involved into the boardroom, looked them in the eye and said: “You’re fired!”

Why does this Obama administration go from one scandal to another, one failure to another? This is an easy answer. Forget about firing them, the people who failed should never have been hired in the first place. It starts, of course, at the very top.

An exceptional CEO will recognize and fire someone not just for failure (that’s a given), but also for just average or mediocre performance. One of greatest CEOs of all time, Jack Welch of General Electric, had a standing policy that every year the bottom-performing 10 percent of all managers were fired, even if they were meeting their targets. That’s how he turned GE into the world’s most valuable company. Now, that is accountability!

By the way, Trump is quoted as saying that Welch would make a great secretary of treasury. What a pleasure it would be for America to have CEOs with that level of competency running our government.

Trump and Welch are two CEOs capable of straightening out our government employee mess, too. America has 22 million government employees. Most make too much money, have obscene pensions that threaten to bankrupt taxpayers and cannot be fired — no matter how incompetent they are. It will take a tough leader to solve this mess, a leader who can make tough choices without worrying about whether he hurts feelings, a leader willing to say: “You’re fired.”

Do you know the name Ernest Moniz? He is the current secretary of energy. And sadly, along with Secretary of State John Kerry, he leads America’s team negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran. Moniz is nuclear physicist who has spent his entire life in academia and government. Kerry, of course, is a career politician married to a ketchup heir (who inherited her money when her husband died in a plane crash). What do these two people know about negotiating? Nothing! And that’s why they’ve negotiated a deal with Iran that hands the terrorist nation a huge victory — and will someday likely get either us or Israel killed.

Who would you rather have negotiating a nuclear deal that could wind up ending the world: a college professor and lifelong politician married to a ketchup heiress or Trump, who wrote the book on negotiation (“Trump: The Art of the Deal”)? I rest my case.

Are there better politicians running for president than Trump? Sure. Probably all of them are better at politics, lying, spinning and telling the people what they want to hear. But is there anyone running for president who would be a better CEO for the United States than Trump? I think not.

Those who have lived their lives in the rarified air of academics and politics (like Barack Obama) have repeatedly proven to be failures at managing the U.S. economy, creating private sector jobs, reducing spending and debt, and looking out for the best interests of the American people. Politicians have proven they can’t or won’t put America first.

Perhaps what we need is a tough-talking “get it done” CEO with an outsized ego. Perhaps it’s time for someone with the CEO experience to hire people who can do the job right — and quickly fire them if they don’t.

A few decades back, critics said it was a joke to think of a failed actor who played second fiddle to a chimp in “Bedtime for Bonzo” — and whose song-and-dance show closed in a week in Las Vegas — as president of the United States. Of course, Ronald Reagan became one of the greatest and most beloved presidents in history.

Perhaps Trump for president isn’t such a joke or long shot after all.

Oh, and one more bonus: It’s my opinion that Obama and his socialist cabal need to be prosecuted for their crimes, including the cover-up in Benghazi, massive criminal political targeting and intimidation in the IRS scandal, and defrauding the American people with the lies of Obamacare. I could easily picture Trump having the courage to hold Obama responsible for his crimes against the American people. Maybe a big ego isn’t so bad after all.

The April jobs report is a Bernie Madoff-like scam

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. It’s getting really embarrassing. It’s hard to believe this is America. The media no longer print the truth; they just print whatever lies make President Obama look best. Are we living in a banana republic, where the media covers up for a tin-pot dictator named Obama?

What Obama is doing to the economy, to jobs, to free markets, to capitalism, to the greatest middle class in world history is a crime so vile it makes Bernie Madoff look like a small-time, amateur pickpocket.

The economy is a disastrous mess. But you wouldn’t know it from the headlines released by the mainstream media. For instance, take the jobs report that came out on Friday. This could be the biggest case of fraud and misrepresentation since Obamacare.

Let’s pick Friday’s jobs report apart, piece by piece.

First, the headlines in most every newspaper in the country reported the “great news” of 223,000 jobs created. No one mentioned that this number was below expectations and, therefore, a disappointment.

No one mentioned that the stock market went up in response to this bad news, because Wall Street analysts now expect the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates at zero (in response to such bad news). In other words, bad news is great news on Wall Street. Instead, the media simply reported that the stock market went up, leaving average Americans to think it was in response to good news about jobs.

Second, while the headline screamed about 223,000 new jobs created, it never mentioned that last month’s jobs figure was revised downward by more than 30 percent. Yes, I said 30 percent from 126,000 new jobs to 85,000.

If the media were doing their job, they’d ask why anyone should believe this month’s figure. Why should we not assume a 30 percent downward revision next month? If so, 220,000 jobs would be revised down to only 160,000 — a disaster that you can count on being reported on page 96 in the back of the newspaper (where no one ever reads).

The third lie is the mother of all fraud. How did the government arrive at that figure of 223,000 new jobs created? It was composed of 252,000 full-time jobs lost and 437,000 part-time jobs gained.

Did you know that? Of course not. Because the media never reported it. Tell me what’s good news about 252,000 full-time jobs being eliminated, while they are replaced by 440,000 horrible low-wage, part-time jobs (the kind that cannot feed a traditional family without food stamps)?

By the way, those 252,000 full-time jobs lost were the biggest drop in full-time jobs in a year. How is this reported as “good news?” How is this reported as proof of a “recovery?” Why aren’t the media reporting we have an economic disaster on our hands? Why isn’t it the story of the year that the prospects of getting a full-time job have declined dramatically from one year ago?

Also, why is there no investigation by the mainstream media about why we are so quickly transforming into a low-wage, part-time economy? Isn’t that the perfect cover for Time magazine? But I haven’t seen it, have you? Why? Because the media is afraid of the obvious answer: Obamacare.

I’ve seen no headlines reporting on the results of Federal Reserve Bank surveys in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta all finding that in response to Obamacare, few — if any — full-time jobs are being created, part-time jobs are the norm, and higher costs for health insurance are being passed on to employees.

There it is. Two mysteries are solved at once. This is why we see only part-time jobs being created and why consumer spending is weak despite lower gas prices. Obamacare is wrecking the economy. Who says so? The Fed. Who did they ask? The only people whose opinions matter: employers.

Lastly, how can the media justify touting 223,000 jobs created without mentioning that in the same month we hit a record low for Americans not in the labor force? Some 93,194,000 of our fellow citizens of working age are not working. That’s the record for the most-ever not working.

You mean this stat isn’t significant enough to mention? Yes, unemployment is going down. The reason is clear: People are dropping out of the workforce and either living on welfare, food stamps or disability. Or if they’re lucky enough to be older, they’re going straight to Social Security and Medicare (meaning they’ll never work again). No country can survive this kind of entitlement burden. Under Obama, a majority of the country is surviving on a government check of some kind.

Recovery? “Good” jobs report? Folks, this is a slow-motion disaster. If a Republican were president the media would blame him for what I called in my bestselling book, “the murder of the middle class.”

But with Obama as president, the mainstream media refuses to tell the truth. In the private sector that’s called fraud. People go to jail for this kind of misrepresentation and omission. Someday, a decade or two from now, history books will report that Obama destroyed the greatest economy, the greatest middle class and the greatest country in world history. And he did it with the full cooperation of the mainstream media. This criminal conspiracy and cover-up of a dying economy have turned America into a banana republic.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.

Is my personal IRS case Obama’s Watergate?

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I’ve had quite a personal news story in the headlines for the past few days. I’d like to share it with you at Personal Liberty.

The IRS scandal just won’t go away — kind of like Watergate. The media knew about Watergate for many months, wrote about it. It simmered. It boiled. Then it turned into a bigger-than-life scandal that destroyed Richard Nixon’s presidency. Could that be a repeat of how the Obama IRS scandal is playing out?

Up until now, no one has been able to physically tie the IRS scandal to the Obama White House or the Democratic Party. That just changed. Up until now, no one has been able to prove he was targeted personally by the IRS for his political views. That just changed, which means I have the proof that makes this a widespread criminal conspiracy.

The revelations I’m about to unveil make all the other alleged IRS attacks look like child’s play. An IRS scandal involving nameless faceless Tea Party groups, billionaire super PACs or generic taxpayers is not the stuff that brings down a presidency. But the story you’re about to hear is Obama’s Watergate.

I have the smoking gun. I was targeted and persecuted by the IRS in an over-the-top attack coordinated at the highest levels of government and the Democratic Party. I can now prove it with facts direct from my IRS files obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch. As you’ll see below, my own IRS tax files not only implicate the IRS, but a leading Democratic U.S. senator in a criminal conspiracy to silence a critic of the president.

But don’t take my word for it. Let’s start with a quote by Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch:

The Obama IRS obstructed the release of Wayne Root’s tax documents. The abuse of process Judicial Watch and Wayne suffered through to get these documents is scandalous. Now we know why the Obama IRS was hesitant to give Wayne his own IRS files. These documents show the Obama IRS scandal was more than just suppressing the Tea Party, it was also about auditing critics of President Obama. Richard Nixon had to resign from office for less. The first order of business for AG Loretta Lynch should be to appoint a special counsel who can convene a grand jury to look into the Obama IRS outrages.

My IRS attack was a political conspiracy coordinated by leading Democrats to either destroy me, bankrupt me or silence me. News flash: You failed. Now I’m going to expose this criminal conspiracy. My case and my personal IRS files have been handed to investigators from the U.S. Senate committee looking into the IRS scandal.

It’s time for the media and Democratic allies of the president to stop making excuses. My case is at the core of the principles America was built on. A president — by law — cannot use the IRS to try to silence his critics or political opponents. U.S. senators — by law — cannot be involved in the IRS tax audits of individual taxpayers. The IRS — by law — cannot base tax audits on politics. If any of those things happen, it’s called a political witch hunt and crimes have been committed.

But until now, no one could prove the IRS was using politics as a basis for vicious vendettas against critics of the president. That just changed. I can’t wait to testify in front of the U.S. Senate about what we found.

First, it starts with the over-the-top nature of my IRS attack. I was audited starting in 2011. The audit started with something that IRS spokesmen and a government official from the office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration claim can never happen. These two government officials claimed in a recent Wall Street Journal article that no taxpayer will ever get a call from the IRS. They said if someone claiming to be from the IRS ever calls, hang up because it’s a scam. The IRS spokesman said the IRS never contacts a taxpayer by phone. Ever.

Really? Want to take a bet on that one? Will that top IRS ethics official be willing to take a lie detector test regarding that statement?

You see, my IRS attack began with a phone call. The IRS agent from the Las Vegas office left a message on my voicemail. Then he called again. Then he took another unheard-of step: He called my accountant. My CPA took power of attorney. From that moment on, the IRS agent was forbidden to contact me.

Yet the IRS agent called me again only minutes later. He spent about 15 minutes on the phone lecturing me about my political views. He knew everything about my politics in detail. Intimidating? You bet. I felt like I needed a shower. It felt like I was being stalked.

So now let me play prosecutor with these IRS spokesmen and government officials. Are you still sticking to your story that the IRS never calls taxpayers? Or is the correct wording, “The IRS never calls taxpayers, unless they are high-profile conservative critics of the president in the national media.” I think that phrasing sounds much more accurate.

After I won in U.S. Tax Court in 2012, something even more shocking happened — something no tax expert or attorney had ever heard of. I was hit with a new IRS audit only five days later. Yes, I said five days after winning in tax court, I was targeted again. To my attorney’s knowledge, this has never happened before in the annals of tax history.

After winning my audit once again, Judicial Watch took my case. JW believed it was a classic criminal case of political intimidation using the IRS to target, prosecute and silence critics of the president. JW requested my tax files from the IRS under the Freedom of Information Act. By law, the IRS had 30 days to comply. It stalled and refused for 14 months. Why would the IRS choose to disobey the law to prevent my files from getting into the hands of Judicial Watch?

Judicial Watch was relentless. The IRS finally handed over my tax files — 13 months late, 13 months of disobeying the law. The question is why? What did the IRS have to hide?

Now come the really criminal revelations.

Wouldn’t President Obama claim the IRS is not political, that IRS audits are never conducted based on politics, that politics and the IRS cannot merge in a free and fair democratic society and that Wayne Root’s case had nothing to do with politics?

Well, I have an interesting revelation for Obama and the national media. We now have my personal IRS tax files in our possession. Do you know what they say on top — on page 1? “Sensitive case.”

Really? What’s “sensitive” about a random audit of a small businessman? Do you know the date “sensitive case” was written on my tax file? It was the very same week that Lois Lerner testified in front of Congress.

So what exactly was “sensitive case” referring to? I’m a national political figure; conservative bestselling author; conservative syndicated columnist; a fixture in places like Fox News, PersonalLiberty.com and conservative talk radio; and a nonstop critic of the president. Obviously, the IRS was referring to “politically sensitive.” There is no other context where “sensitive” applies to me.

But I thought politics didn’t enter into it. Why would the IRS know or care about my politics? Why is a citizen’s tax file connected in any way to his political views? Good questions.

But we’re only getting started with the criminal implications of this case.

Written into the margin of my IRS tax files are the words of my IRS auditor. He wrote on my file that he spent many hours on the Internet researching the political views of Wayne Root. He wrote about my many media appearances, including Fox News. He wrote all of this on my IRS file. Isn’t that a crime? It’s called political targeting. No wonder he was able to recite chapter and verse about my political views in a 15-minute phone call to start my audit.

How chilling is this revelation to the national media? Does it remind anyone of the KGB, Stasi or Gestapo? In a free and fair society, IRS agents don’t spend hours researching a taxpayer’s political views — not unless they are looking to destroy the taxpayer based on orders from above.

Why was this “research project” of my political views necessary if the IRS was conducting a “normal random audit?” Because this clearly wasn’t a “normal random audit.” It was a political witch hunt. Crimes were committed. My civil rights were clearly violated. And my audit began with the phone call that the top ethics official of the IRS says “never happens.”

Would the IRS ethics official care to weigh in on an IRS agent calling a taxpayer to lecture him about his political views — after spending hours researching his life on the Internet? Cat got your tongue?

Wait. It gets better. My IRS files state that a U.S. senator from Oregon was involved in my tax audit. At the time, both Senators from Oregon were Democrats. So now we can prove it was a political witch hunt directed or coordinated by high-level Democratic politicians.

Why would a U.S. senator be involved in a random taxpayer’s IRS audit? Why would an Oregon U.S. Senator be involved in the audit of a Nevada small businessman? Could it have been Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden? After all, he was at the time chairman of the Senate Finance Committee with oversight over the IRS.

Let’s connect the dots. Why would an Oregon U.S. Senator care about a Nevada taxpayer? Could someone in the White House have asked the chairman of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, with oversight over the IRS, to initiate an IRS attack on Wayne Root? Was the goal to destroy a critic of Obama, perhaps to bankrupt me with legal fees or taxes and penalties? Or maybe just to distract or intimidate me from my nonstop appearances criticizing Obama in the conservative media?

I’ve heard many defenders of Obama claim I wasn’t important enough for this White House to commit crimes to silence me. Really? Then why was a Democratic U.S. senator involved in my IRS audit? Here’s a really good question: Why would any senator from either party be involved in a “random IRS audit” of an individual taxpayer? Isn’t that illegal? Doesn’t it violate my civil rights? It’s certainly beyond the scope of the duties of a U.S. senator — unless the Obama White House asked him to get involved.

I’m truly honored that my personal IRS audit was that important to a U.S. senator. But everyone involved should go to prison. Criminal acts were clearly committed.

But wait; we’re not done. On May 23, 2013, my case was officially closed. Recognize that date? It’s the exact day that IRS official Lois Lerner was suspended and the day after she testified in front of Congress (and refused to answer questions on the grounds it might incriminate her). Coincidence? 

Why was my case closed? The IRS auditor handling my case informed my tax attorney that he was called by a top IRS official demanding the case be closed immediately. Why would a top IRS official get involved in my case? Who asked him to make that call? Did he know the politically damaging details of this audit marked “sensitive case?” Why did it happen the very day after Lerner’s testimony?

Why was it so important to suddenly close my case that specific week? Why the sudden rush? Why would a top IRS official get involved in my case? Why would he even know about a “random audit” of a Nevada small businessman? Or was he involved in a case marked “sensitive?”

Why would a top IRS official know the details of my case? What was “sensitive” about my case? Why the need for top-level IRS officials to intercede in this “sensitive case” on the same week Lerner appeared before Congress?

It is clear I was targeted and persecuted by the IRS twice because of my conservative political views. There is no debate anymore. I am living proof this was a widespread political witch hunt and criminal conspiracy within the IRS.

But my case is also proof this scandal extended beyond the IRS to high-level Democrats, including a specific Democratic U.S. senator. It’s all in black and white in my personal IRS tax files. These are facts.

Now it’s time for the mainstream media to do their job and connect the dots — just like they did with Watergate. 

Who asked the IRS to target Wayne Root? Who gave the IRS agent the order to call Wayne Root when the top IRS investigator claims that never happens? Who asked the Oregon senator to get involved in my audit? Why was a top IRS official interceding in my case? Why was it marked “sensitive?”

This conspiracy goes directly to the Obama White House. I’m not just any conservative media personality. I’m Obama’s Columbia College classmate (Class of ’83) who has repeatedly publicly questioned Obama’s background and agenda in the national media, including nonstop here at Personal Liberty.

I’m one of Obama’s loudest critics. It appears my criticisms hit close to home. I got under Obama’s skin. And someone in Obama’s White House either called that U.S. senator to try to destroy me, or perhaps directly ordered my attacks at the hands of the IRS and then called the Oregon senator to coordinate and oversee the attack.

Two things are now crystal clear: First, I was the victim of a widespread politically motivated criminal attack by the IRS.

Second, I wasn’t alone. I’m the tip of the iceberg. This happened to thousands of people: critics of Obama, GOP donors, Tea Party groups, conservative media guests. This is how Obama stole the 2012 election. He used the IRS like the Gestapo to distract, intimidate and destroy people’s lives.

Nixon didn’t dare do one-hundredth of this and he was forced from office just ahead of an impeachment mob. I’m just the canary in the coal mine. I’m the wake-up call. If Obama did this to me, you could be next. Anyone could be next. We have to stop Obama and stop the IRS today — before it’s too late. Because if we don’t stop him, who knows where this leads? It’s the IRS today; it’s trumped-up criminal charges and political prisoners tomorrow.

My files have been turned over to U.S. Senate investigators. I stand ready to testify in front of the U.S. Senate. Game on.

It’s time for black Americans to blame black Americans

Hi I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I’ve been glued to the television for days now watching the violence and unrest going on in Baltimore. I’m here today to make a statement… and to ask an important question. The statement is simple: It’s time for Black America to stop blaming others for their problems. It’s time for Black America to blame black America.

The big question is “Does Black Violence Matter?” Because we know that black protestors think “Black Lives Matter.” We all agree. Of course black lives matter. Protesters march every day with those signs. Every time a black youth is shot by a white cop we see those signs “Black Lives Matter.” But when blacks murder other blacks… no signs. When blacks riot and burn their own black neighborhoods… no signs. When blacks loot and burn black businesses… no signs. When blacks try to hurt, maim or kill police officers… no signs. Does that mean that “Black Violence Doesn’t Matter?”

Here are some more questions. Here are the people and groups black Americans should be questioning and blaming.

Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don‘t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens rioting in the streets. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence. The real issue is that the welfare state has destroyed the black family. The protestors should be carrying signs that say “Black Fathers Matter.”

Did you see that heroic mother screaming at and hitting her own son to keep him from joining the mob? She did what any mother would do to save her son’s life… or prevent him from going to jail and ruining his life. But where was her husband while her son was about to ruin his life? Where was the father? The grandfather? There are no adult men in this tragic and dysfunctional picture.

Where is Obama? Our nation’s first black president was silent that whole first day as blacks tore apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word when thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word about black-on-black crime, rioting, looting, burning or murder?

Sure he weighed in the next day from the safety of the Rose Garden. But only when he had no choice- he was cornered by journalists who demanded a comment. But he was a day late and a dollar short.

Why wasn’t he “boots on the ground” at the scene. Afterall Baltimore is in his backyard. He could almost walk from the White House. He got almost 90 percent of the black vote just two years ago from those very neighborhoods. He has plenty of time to go golfing. But no time to walk a major American city, in his own backyard, that is burning at the hands of his own people?

Freud would have a field day with this one.

Where is the black mayor of Baltimore? She clearly ordered police to stand down, make no arrests, stop no crimes while her city was being destroyed, while the businesses she is sworn to protect were being looted and burned. She clearly said days before the riots went ballistic that she wanted to create a “space for those who want to destroy.” Then she blamed the media for merely repeating her words verbatim.

What’s the excuse of the day? The excuse in the past was blacks felt powerless with white politicians and white police in charge. Well Baltimore is under 100 percent black and Democrat control. You mean blacks feel powerless with a black mayor, black city council, black police chief and minority-majority police force (meaning the police are made up of a majority of people of color). When do the excuses end? When do you stop blaming others?

Where are the black leaders? Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? They all had a week to see what was happening. When the mayor locked the fans in the Baltimore Orioles stadium on Friday night for their own protection, it was pretty clear sign trouble was coming! Yet not a peep out of Al or Jesse. And no preparation by government to prevent rioting.

Here’s a good question: Where is our government when taxpayers need protection? I saw a store owner on the national news two nights ago. Her store was a fixture in that Baltimore neighborhood for 30 years. Now it’s destroyed. All her goods stolen. Her employees laid off. So what good is government if they can’t even protect a store owner and taxpayer?

I’m a Libertarian conservative. I’m not a fan of government. I think government is a mixture of incompetence, evil and thievery. The perfect storm. There’s only one thing I believe government is there for- protecting our lives and property from criminals and foreign enemies. That’s it. And they can’t even do that.

That store owner paid property taxes for 30 years and the city stood by while her livelihood was destroyed. What a joke. What fraud. She deserves an instant refund of all 30 years of her property taxes?

The mafia demands 10 percent for protection money from a business owner… then they protect us. Government calls that fraud. They put the mafia in jail for that. They call it extortion.

But government demands 50 percent of our money, then they stand by and they don’t even protect us. They stand by and allow criminals to loot and burn our businesses. Guess what? I choose the mafia. It’s a much better deal!

How about the war on poverty? How’s that worked out for black America? The longest and most expensive war in American history has been in place since LBJ and inner cities like Baltimore look exactly the same. Same poverty. Same hopelessness. Same anger and violence. Same rioting and blame and excuses. After $22 trillion has been spent — more (by far) than all the wars in the history of America combined, the results are… nothing. Not a damn thing has changed.

Here’s a question for black America? How has having the first black president helped your cause? With black unemployment double that of whites, who is to blame? With the economy on death watch and 0 percent GDP growth, who’s to blame? With the workforce participation rate at modern day lows for blacks, who’s to blame? With more than 100 million Americans on welfare checks of some kind, who’s to blame? With black poverty at modern day highs under a black president, who’s to blame?

I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today. She wished white America would be half as outraged over “police violence” as they are over the rioting.

Well I have a message for Sally Kohn: I wish black Americans would be half as outraged over black-on-black violence, black-on-black murders, black gangs, black drug dealers, black looting, black burning of black small businesses and black rioting as they are about one white cop killing one black kid.

And one more thought for Sally and liberals like her…

What has 50 years of black rule, liberal welfare and entitlement policies, excuses and blame towards white people done for black Americans in inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit? Where’s the progress in those cities under 100 percent Democrat politicians and policies?

The sighting of a white Republican on the streets of cities like Detroit and Baltimore is just a rumor. There were no Republicans or white people among the local leaders at the podium in Baltimore yesterday with the mayor. On that stage was 100 percent black leadership. Yet urban inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit are in ruins.

It’s time to take personal responsibility. Slavery was a long, long, long time ago. My Jewish relatives were enslaved by Hitler and the Nazis much more recently than your ancestors were enslaved by the South. It’s time to move on.

It’s time to fight for jobs, not welfare. It’s time to look within yourselves. It’s time to stop blaming others. It’s time to blame black fathers. It’s time to blame black leaders. It’s time to blame a black president. It’s time to ask what the Democratic Party has ever done for you except ensure you’re helpless, hopeless and dependent on government to survive. It’s time to blame the war on poverty.

It’s time for black Americans to blame black Americans.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Get ready for my most explosive column ever. It’s the biggest story of my career. It’s an expose of crimes, targeting and intimidation by Obama, government and the IRS. It’s factual — direct from my personal IRS files obtained by Judicial Watch under the Freedom of Information Act. This is breaking news. And it could take down this corrupt government once and for all. See you next week. God bless America.

This GOP presidential ticket tells liberals to go to hell

Hi, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The GOP keeps bringing a knife to a gun fight. The result is we’re getting killed. We’re getting defeated and humiliated even after we won the most historic landslide in modern history. It’s time to change strategy.

The media tells us to play nice, be “gentlemen” and compromise. Look where it’s gotten us: a bankrupt country with over $18 trillion in debt and income taxes at about the same level as bankrupt, socialist Greece. Worse, the labor force participation rate is at all-time lows. And for the first time in history more businesses fail each day than open.

We are facing the end of the America dream and death of the greatest middle class in world history because we have played nice, acted like gentlemen and compromised. We’re standing around acting like “gentlemen” while Barack Obama turns America into Detroit. Like in that movie “Network,” it’s time to open our window and scream: “I’m not going to take it anymore!”

It’s time for a GOP dream team of street fighters to take on the evil that is destroying America by making us all dependent on big government. It’s time to kick ass and take no prisoners. It’s time to stand up to the evildoers and tell them to go to hell.

It’s time to get behind one nominee and then name our entire team and announce what that team will do to save the U.S. economy, the middle class and the American dream.

It’s time to inspire passion and enthusiasm by showing we stand for something. That something includes smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, paying down the debt and giving more power to the citizens. Let the liberal media try to call that “extreme.” The American people will vote for that vision.

Liberals and the media told us we’d lose if we ran an “extremist” like Ronald Reagan. Instead, he won in two historic landslides. Since then, every milquetoast moderate we’ve run — George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney — lost.

The key to victory is the passion, energy, intensity and enthusiasm of your base, combined with inspiring independents and undecided voters by painting a picture of hope, prosperity and patriotism. You have to get people excited. Being “moderate” doesn’t excite anyone. Although it’s a little early for me to endorse anyone, here is a look at a potential GOP dream team.

Scott Walker as the GOP presidential nominee

Here’s a man from the Midwest, without a college degree and with a blue-collar mentality. Here’s a man who fought the money and manpower of every union in America and won — not once, not twice, but three times in blue-state Wisconsin. He didn’t do it with kindness. Despite death threats against his wife and children, Scott Walker never gave an inch. He turned a $3 billion deficit into a billion-dollar surplus, and then handed the money back to the taxpayers. That’s a fighter. That’s courage. That’s a leader with a spine, who won’t fold when the biased-liberal media tries to slander and destroy him. Walker’s a man bringing a bazooka to a gun fight.

His choices for vice president are plentiful. The GOP bench is fantastic and diverse, from Latino men like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, to women like Carly Fiorina, Gov. Susanna Martinez and Gov. Nikki Haley, to libertarian heroes like Rand Paul, to a brilliant African-American brain surgeon like Dr. Ben Carson, to a genius policy wonk like Gov. Bobby Jindal. The list is long.

We’ve been governed by inept political hacks for far too long. It is time for a dream team of experienced, committed adults who will kick ass and never fold when the going gets tough. The GOP presidential nominee needs to name his entire dream team.

Do that and we’ll put the fear of God into liberals and the media. Here is how we differentiate ourselves, paint a picture of hope and inspire our base! Here is how we win 270 electoral votes.

Name our dream team from top to bottom

Attorney General Ted Cruz: Let’s put a true defender of the Constitution in a place where he can do just that. Can you imagine the fear we’ll drive into the heads and hearts of law-breaking liberals and Marxists? No compromise, no mercy.

Treasury Secretary Rand Paul: Put a libertarian in charge of the economy, taxes and the IRS. Watch the U.S. economy enjoy the greatest expansion in history with a true, free-market libertarian in charge. Rand Paul is a fighter. No compromise, no mercy.

Defense Secretary Allen West. Here’s the man born to stand up for the honor of the military and defend the greatest nation in world history. No compromise, no mercy.

Secretary of State (you’re going to love this one) Donald Trump: Rather than weaklings afraid of their shadows, turn the world’s greatest, pit bull negotiator loose on our adversaries like China and Russia. Let him negotiate the nuclear deal with Iran. No compromise, no mercy.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ron Paul: The first father-son cabinet team will stand up to, audit and rein in the Fed before the Fed destroys our economy. Ron Paul’s entire life has been preparation for this. No compromise, no mercy.

Homeland Security Secretary Trey Gowdy: Protect our borders with a pit bull, not a pussycat. No compromise, no mercy.

ICE Director Joe Arpaio: Need I say more?

Health And Human Services Secretary Ben Carson: Here’s the guy born to dismantle Obamacare. No compromise, no mercy.

Labor Secretary Darrell Issa: Here’s a street fighter who will stand up for America’s workers, not union bosses. No compromise, no mercy.

Energy Secretary Sarah Palin. You want jobs? Take off the shackles and drill, baby, drill! No compromise, no mercy.

Commerce Secretary Herman Cain. Here’s a brilliant businessman and unabashed capitalist who will get American working again. No compromise, no mercy.

Special Economic Advisers Mitt Romney, Jack Welsh, Steve Wynn, Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump (doing double duty): Put politics aside and put people who understand business in charge of the economy. No compromise, no mercy.

Education Secretary Bobby Jindal. Here’s the brightest guy in the room, bar none. Put him in charge of taking on the teachers unions with creative ideas to turn around our failing education system. No compromise, no mercy.

(Now, a personal plug) Wayne Allyn Root, in charge of the Small Business Administration: Small business is the economic engine of America. I know how to motivate, inspire and empower the millions of mom and pop businesses on Main Street, not Wall Street. I stand for giving power to small business, not the welfare state or illegal aliens. No compromise, no mercy.

This is how you win an election — by exciting and inspiring Americans with an experienced, all-star GOP dream team that actually stands for something: America first!

And this is how you tell liberals to go to hell.

Pray for Hillary

If you’re a conservative, Libertarian, limited government Constitutionalist or patriot, pray for Hillary. She’s our best hope for 2016. I love Hillary Clinton. I’m rooting for Hillary. She is a gift from heaven. I pray for her nomination every morning.

No, I’m not a fan of Hillary. No, I don’t support her policies. No, I don’t want her as president. But I sure want her as the Democratic nominee. She is “the gift that keeps on giving.” Hillary has so much baggage her campaign should be sponsored by Samsonite.

If the GOP has any hope of winning in 2016, Hillary has to be the nominee. Before I get to the scandals, let’s start with the obvious. Hillary is old news, over the hill, tired, worn out, spoiled milk. She is just going through the motions. She doesn’t even look or sound like she cares. Hillary herself can’t think of a single compelling reason for why she should be president. She’s just been waiting around a long time. And she’s a woman. That’s it. That’s her reason.

She’s so old and entitled that the guy who managed her campaign for U.S. Senate, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, refuses to endorse her for president. He basically just said what I said. She’s old news. She has no new ideas. She offers America nothing new. That’s one of her closest allies speaking.

Every candidate needs a brand. Hillary’s brand is “Entitlement. It’s my time. Oh, and I’m a female.” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

If Hillary is the nominee, she can be destroyed and branded with so many scandals, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Destroy her with her own words, “What difference does it make?” Those were her words in front of a congressional committee about the Benghazi tragedy. Four heroes were murdered. She participated in a coverup and all she could think to say was, “What difference does it make?” Meaning, those young heroes are all dead, so who cares?

Her own TV ads in 2008 bragged about her decision-making abilities at 2 a.m. when the important call comes in. Well, we now know what she said when that call came in during the attack on Benghazi. She heard our heroes were about to be murdered and she said, “What difference does it make?” Then, she went back to sleep. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

I suggest TV ad campaigns featuring the parents of those four men abandoned by Hillary and Barack Obama and left to die at the hands of a radical Muslim mob, who clearly were supplied with their weapons by … Hillary and Obama. Let’s ask the parents how they feel about Hillary. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Is she scared of her role in Benghazi? Well, she erased 32,000 emails. She should be called “Tricky Dicky Hillary.” She was a lawyer on the committee investigating Richard Nixon’s scandals. She knew all about the erased Nixon audiotapes. She learned well. That must be where she got the idea to delete 32,000 emails and wipe the server clean. Like Nixon, she decided what we the people needed to know. Then she pressed “delete.” Run those TV ads 24 hours a day. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

What difference did she make as secretary of state? Name her accomplishments? The world is in flames, the Middle East melted down, ISIS was born, Iran laughed in our face while building a nuclear program — all under her leadership. The world is a far more dangerous place. What difference did she make? Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

“We were dead broke when we left the White House.” There’s another great line. Let’s play it 24 hours a day. Maybe that’s why the Clintons stole the china and furniture on the way out the door. Maybe that’s why $6 billion went missing at the State Department under her watch. When you’re broke, $6 billion can make a big difference. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary says she is a “woman of the people.” She’s one of us. But she hasn’t driven a car since 1996. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary is all about the middle class. She has decided to make the middle class the centerpiece of her campaign for president. But “Mrs. Middle Class” demands $300,000 for a one-hour speech and a Gulfstream private jet to take her there and back.

She also gets the presidential suite at a five-star hotel, or she won’t show up. No Marriotts, Hiltons or Holiday Inns for Hillary. Run those facts 24 hours a day. Let’s see how middle-class women respond to her list of demands. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Hillary is all about honesty and transparency. But it turns out she bought 2 million fake Facebook fans. I guess those are the things you have to do when you ask middle-class college kids paying obscene tuition to pay for your $300,000 speeches and private jets. It must be hard to find real fans! Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

But I saved the best for last: The Clinton Foundation. The Clintons have raised more than $2 billion dollars in donations from the wealthiest people, companies and foreign governments in the world. She’s not “conflicted.” Hillary is bought and paid for. If she wins the presidency, she should wear pantsuits custom designed with patches from corporate sponsors. You know, like NASCAR. She should have Penske and Valvoline patches on her pantsuits. The White House should say: “America’s House, Brought to you by the government of Saudi Arabia.”

Hillary says she fights for the rights of women. Yet she accepts hundreds of millions in donations from Muslim governments that stone women, make them hide behind veils, don’t allow them to drive without a man in the car, don’t allow them to be educated, and arrest and whip them (occasionally even execute them) for being the victims of rape. She could be the biggest hypocrite in the history of politics.

Here’s a great line for TV commercials: “When a Muslim country gives a $10 million check to The Clinton Foundation, then stones a woman, what does Hillary say? ‘Thank you!'” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

She says she fights for the rights of gays. She tweeted her horror at the new Indiana law protecting religious freedom. But she gladly accepted multimillion-dollar checks from Muslim governments that stone gays and drop them off roofs of buildings. This is the biggest fraud and hypocrite in the history of world politics. Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

Remember Hillary’s TV commercial about that important phone call at 2 a.m.? We need to run TV ads 24 hours a day asking, “When that call comes in at 2 a.m. and it involves one of those countries that gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, do you trust Hillary Clinton to make the decision that is best for America, for your interests, for your children? Hillary Clinton: bought and paid for by foreign governments.” Pray this is the Democratic nominee.

And if you’re a Democrat, you’d better start praying that Hillary is destroyed before she wins the nomination — and early enough that there is time to find and vet a credible replacement. This woman is a ticking time bomb. It’s not a matter of if, but only a matter of when, she implodes or some scandal comes rushing to the surface to blow her campaign to tatters. Maybe it’ll be Benghazi. Or the 32,000 deleted emails. Or maybe it’s the Clinton Foundation. Or maybe it’s her chief of staff and constant woman at her side, Huma Abedin. That story smells worse than all the others.

But I know one thing: Hillary is the most flawed candidate in the history of politics. And I’m praying on bended knees that Hillary gets the nomination.

Why Obama, Democrats and Apple CEO Tim Cook are hypocrites, liars and frauds about Indiana religious freedom law

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The religious freedom act in Indiana has been the biggest news in America for a week now.

This is all a joke, a distraction from what’s really being done to America by Barack Obama and his Marxist cabal of America-haters. Or haven’t you noticed an Iranian nuclear deal that allows Iran to gain nuclear weapons, or a new crisis of illegals at the border, or debt escalating out of control, or 40 straight months with more than 46 million Americans on food stamps, or GDP growth of zero now projected for the first quarter and a disastrous jobs report?

First let’s “out” the opponents of this law. Let me start by saying I’m a true fiscal conservative. But when it comes to social and bedroom issues, I’m a libertarian. I believe in live and let live. I want government out of my bedroom and boardroom. The government shouldn’t be regulating marriage; only churches should marry people.

And if a gay couple wanted a wedding cake from me, you know what I’d say? “How big?” But that’s just me. I’m a capitalist, I’m happy to sell my products to everyone. That’s the American way.

But if people ask me to violate my personal values, morals or religious beliefs, or if I just don’t like what they asking me to do, as a business owner, of course I have a right to opt out. I’m not hurting them, or stopping them. That’s called free will. That’s called free speech, protected by the Constitution.

The radical gay agenda is infringing on our rights as Americans, as Christians and as business owners. And it’s going to backfire. The proof is the small-town Indiana pizzeria whose owners told a reporter they would refuse to make pizzas for a gay wedding. How silly. Weddings aren’t catered by pizzerias in the first place. But instantly they were inundated with death threats and even a local coach asking others on Twitter to join her in burning down the pizzeria. The family that owns the pizzeria closed its doors and ran for their own safety.

Then something interesting happened. Americans supported them — to the tune of more than $842,000, donated by strangers on an online funding site. This pizzeria owner won the lottery. He should thank God for the radical gay agenda.

But back to the hypocrisy and fraud. First, the Indiana bill is a copy of a federal law signed by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1993.

Isn’t Clinton a friend of gays? Aren’t gay activists supporting Hillary Clinton for president? Yet not one gay activist blamed the Clintons.

This is just like the radical feminist activists who loved Bill Clinton and never said a word as he used his position of power to have sex with a young intern.

Isn’t that the very definition of sexual harassment? If it were a Republican president, the same radical feminists would have screamed for resignation. But when Clinton was the perpetrator, not a peep from the feminists. Hypocrites.

Then there’s Obama. What a hypocrite. Iran’s leaders don’t discriminate against gays; they murder them. They throw them off roofs after torturing them. It’s barbaric. Yet Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are doing business with Iran. Why are they willing to sit at the table with these gay killers?

And if gay rights are really so important to Obama, why isn’t the right to not be murdered for being gay not part of the Iranian nuclear negotiation? Hypocrites.

Then there’s Apple CEO Tim Cook. He’s was all “fired up” by Indiana’s new law. Yet Apple makes billions of dollars selling its products in Russia, where gays have no rights; and in Muslim countries like Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, where gays are murdered for their sexual preference; and in China where no one has any civil or human rights. Why doesn’t Apple stop selling iPhones and iPads in those countries? Why doesn’t Apple close its Moscow store immediately? Hypocrites.

And then there’s the Pandora’s box liberal gay activists just opened up:

  • Should a Muslim baker be forced by government to bake a cake for a gay wedding?
  • Should a Muslim butcher be forced by government to sell pork?
  • Should a gay baker be forced by government to bake a cake with anti-gay profanity on top?
  • Should a gay photographer be forced by government to photograph a rally where religious speakers are telling gays to go hell?
  • Should a Jewish owner of a security company in Skokie, Illinois, be forced by government to provide security for a Nazi rally?
  • Should a churchgoing Christian mother be forced by government to cater an awards gala at a porn convention?
  • Should a churchgoing Christian mother who owns a print shop be forced by government to make banners for spring break that say, “Show me your breasts!”
  • Should an Obama-loving liberal business owner be forced by government to rent the stage at his event center for a Tea Party rally?
  • Should a black baker be forced by government to bake a cake with racist profanity and a black man in a noose for a KKK birthday party?

Where does it end? This is insanity. Government has no right to take away our rights of free will, free speech and free association. But if you’re going to force Christian business owners to do things they don’t choose to do, then it goes both ways. The law has to be fairly applied to everyone, or it’s clearly discrimination and a violation of our civil rights.

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. I have a feeling liberals and gay rights activists are going to be very sorry they opened this door.

Create $200 million conservative super fund to convict Obama and Hillary

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Loose lips sink ships. Here is how Republican donors can sink the ships of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Democrats claim all rich people are Republicans. Not true. The superrich are actually a mixture of Democrats (mostly trial lawyers and spoiled brats who inherited their money) and sleazy sell-outs who are willing to play both sides or sell out either party to get what they want.

But there are more than enough rich conservative super donors (think Koch brothers, Donald Trump, Sheldon Adelson, Steve Wynn, Vince McMahon and — don’t forget — Mitt Romney). Why aren’t they stepping up to the plate? Put your money where your mouth is. The media is dominated by biased liberal frauds. Conservatives can’t win in the media. We can win only by going over the media’s head. It’s time to make a PR splash.

It’s time to use capitalism and the power of greed (the things Democrats claim to hate so much) to save America. We need a group of wealthy conservative donors to pool their money together to offer a series of rewards to break open the criminal conspiracies of both Obama and Clinton. It’s time to make an offer too big to refuse.

Conservative billionaire donors like those I named above need to pool together a reward pot of $200 million. For a group of billionaires, that’s “chump change.” That’s like you or me taking $100 out of our wallets.

But it’s enough money to get the attention of America. Two hundred million dollars will loosen lips. For $200 million in reward money, everyone who knows something will talk.

Here is how we save America

No. 1: Offer $50 million to implicate Obama and top White House aides in the Obamacare fraud.

We already know from Jonathan Gruber’s lips that Obamacare was total fraud, deception and misrepresentation. Gigantic lies were made up to sell it. Like Watergate, the crucial question is: Who knew and when did they know it? 

We need witnesses to come forward to report the names of everyone at the meetings when it was agreed Obamacare could pass only by lying about not losing your doctor, not losing your insurance policy, not raising health insurance premiums for middle-class families, not creating massive debt and not killing jobs. And how about the inside details of the $1 billion of taxpayer money wasted on foreign companies (who just happened to be friends of the Obamas) to build and fix a defective website?

This was a classic criminal conspiracy. Everyone involved needs to go to prison. This was the world’s first trillion-dollar scam. Fifty million dollars should get people talking. Maybe Jonathan Gruber himself would take $50 million and immunity from prosecution versus spending the rest of his life in a prison cell.

No. 2: Offer $50 million to any IRS official who comes forward to report on who in White House gave the IRS its marching orders to target, intimidate and persecute Obama critics and opponents (like me).

Obama himself is in this criminal conspiracy up to his neck. We know the chief of the IRS officials practically lived at the White House during Obama’s first term — far more than any other Obama official (or even Cabinet member). We know Obama met with the head of IRS employees union the day before the IRS targeting started. If you can tie Obama or his closest aides (like Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod) to the crime, $50 million is yours. With that kind of money, you don’t have to worry about going to prison for a year or two, or losing your pension.

No. 3: I’ve saved best for last. Here’s where you offer the really big money. Offer $100 million to any hacker in the world who can recover Clinton’s 32,000 deleted emails.

Knock Clinton out of the race now. She is badly wounded and bleeding in the ocean, with sharks swimming around her. The Democrats have no Plan B for the 2016 race. It’s Clinton, or they are up the creek without a paddle.

Clinton’s 32,000 deleted emails can be recovered by the same talented hackers who hacked Sony Pictures or Target or the Defense Department.

I guarantee you there’s a reason she deleted them. The words on those emails would not only end her political career, they could send Clinton to jail. And if I’m right, the messages she sent about Benghazi, Libya, will end Obama’s presidency, too. Clinton wiped her server clean for a good reason: She was hiding the criminal cover-up of a massive foreign policy blunder that makes Watergate look like a ticket for jaywalking.

This is how we save America, by thinking out of the box and going over the heads of the media (who refuse to do their job investigating Obama or Clinton). This is how we turn the tables on the media. This is how we do their jobs for them.

This is how we:

  1. Stop the most corrupt president and administration in history.
  2. Save capitalism and the middle class from utter destruction at the hands of Obama and his socialist cabal.
  3. Finally get rid of the Clintons once and for all.

It’s three for the price of one — for the bargain price of $200 million.

The Gestapo is alive and well in Obama’s America

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Barack Obama is going rogue. By every metric, the Obama economy is melting down. We are seeing the beginning stages of another recession, at best, or a total economic meltdown, at worst.

At the moment, there are no decent-paying jobs in America. Obama has opened the border and given amnesty to at least 5 million illegal aliens already in the country, thereby putting them in competition with working-class and middle-class Americans.

Think I’m wrong? Did you know the government is giving businesses a $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over native-born Americans?

Did you know cities are hiring noncitizens (and even illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama) as policemen? All you need is a work permit. Someone in America illegally can wear a badge and enforce the law against you. Don’t believe me? Ask USA Today.

Did you think the border crisis was over? Obama’s amnesty has encouraged a new wave of poverty-stricken illegals at the border.

And in a bankrupt nation with more than $18 trillion in debt, Obama has used amnesty to give illegals access to food stamps, free healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, earned income tax credits. And by issuing drivers’ licenses and Social Security cards, they will be able to vote immediately (because States don’t have the technology to tell the difference between a legal citizen or a noncitizen).

The Obamacare fiasco gets worse by the day. The middle class is being bankrupted by skyrocketing increases in their health insurance premiums; hospitals are being bankrupted by the flood of illegal aliens accessing services; and the economy will drown in the new debt caused by Obamacare.

Obama’s claim that ISIS is on the run is a proven fraud, ripped bare by America’s embarrassing military withdrawl from Yemen. 

Obama is going nuclear in his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, force-feeding the world a weak nuclear agreement with Iran that is so bad, even France is fighting for stronger sanctions. Meanwhile, Obama threatens to become the first president in history to abandon Israel at the United Nations. 

But I haven’t gotten to the bad part yet. Is it possible the terrible news about the economy, the border, ISIS and Israel is all just a distraction? Because the really important news is that Obama has created a modern-day version of “the Gestapo.”

The Obama government is using an initiative called “Operation Chokepoint” to force legal businesses it doesn’t like out of business, by threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors.

At the same time, the Obama government is urging banks to call the police to report citizens who withdraw $5,000 or more from their own bank accounts. Yes, I said banks are urged to call the police when you withdraw your own money.

This comes at the same time that FEMA announced it will no longer provide FEMA disaster relief funds to states whose governors deny “climate change.” 

And let’s not forget Obama used an FCC party-line vote to take over the Internet and institute sweeping new changes to a system that is working perfectly as the form of communication for most Americans.

Obama’s first goal is clearly massive new taxes on Internet usage, just another way to destroy the middle class and redistribute income. But is his real goal is controlling communications on the Internet — specifically the anti-Obama criticism and anti-government message so prevalent on the Internet.

But let’s circle back to the most Gestapo-like Obama initiative ever. It’s called “Operation Chokepoint.” This is your government’s attempt to put morality controls (just like those in Iran) on the American public by shutting down gun stores, precious metals companies, casinos, tobacco distributors, telemarketers and short-term money lenders.

How can they close legal businesses you ask? By threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors to close accounts for businesses the government doesn’t like. Just like an Iranian ayatollah, if Obama doesn’t like your business, he will “choke off” your ability to stay in business. Hence the name, “Operation Chokepoint.”

Never forget Obama has been on a six-year-long relentless crusade to raise our taxes and take away our tax deduction for charitable donations, choking off contributions to churches. Yes, Obama is trying to “choke off” the funding that keeps churches in business, too.

Why is this happening? First, because Obama despises capitalism. He needs to put prosperous businesses out of business. By murdering the middle class’ ability to prosper, he creates his utopia of equality (i.e., “shared misery”), making everyone dependent on government in a classless, socialist society. Think Cuba and Venezuela.

Second, there is an obvious reason Obama hates these particular industries. The subtitle of my 2009 book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian,” says it all. The subtitle was “Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” Is it a coincidence that virtually every item I mentioned is under attack?

The businesses on the list of “Operation Chokepoint” are all dominated by people that Obama would describe as capitalists, patriots, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Christians and supporters of the Constitution. Not coincidently, those are the same groups targeted by Obama in the IRS scandal. 

And then, of course, if Obama can’t close your business or “choke off” your ability to prosper, he can force banks to call the police if you dare to withdraw money from your own account.

Folks, this is eerily reminiscent of the Gestapo, or the Soviet KGB, or the East German Stasi. Is this the America you want? The NSA spying on your every move, the federal government in charge of your healthcare and now your free speech on the Internet, the IRS auditing enemies and critics of the government, the federal government forcing legal businesses they deem “unacceptable” out of business, and banks spying on their own customers and being forced to call the police when customers withdraw too much of their own money.

Yes, under Barack Hussein Obama, the Gestapo is alive and well in the former “Land of the Free.”

Update: A link in this story has been changed for purposes of clarification.

The perfect answer when media ask: ‘Does Obama love America?’

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty.

When Rudy Giuliani said he thought “Obama doesn’t love America,” it set off a media firestorm.

You know, those same fine ultraliberal Americans now running the mainstream media — who, while in class with me at Columbia University, cheered the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan and who today, no doubt, support students at California college campuses who voted to remove the American flag — criticized Giuliani for stating the obvious.

Naturally, the media decided to play “gotcha” with GOP presidential candidates and ask them if they agree that Obama doesn’t love America. As usual, GOP candidates panicked and ran away from Giuliani’s statement.

Well, I have the perfect answer to that question. Scott Walker, are you listening? 

The answer is I believe Obama loves America the same way Fidel Castro has loved Cuba for the past half century. And I believe Obama loves America the same way Hugo Chavez loved Venezuela, the same way Josef Stalin loved Russia, the same way Ho Chi Minh loved North Vietnam and the same way the socialist presidents of insolvent, bankrupt EU countries like Greece, Spain and France today love their countries.

I’m sure Obama loves America the same way they all loved their countries and their people. Yet they managed to destroy their countries and economies. That’s what socialism, communism or Marxism (whatever you want to name it) does. It destroys everyone and everything it touches. Ask the people of Detroit now living in an abandoned city.

It’s not a matter of patriotism. Obama may very well love America, just as I’m sure Castro would say he’s the biggest Cuban patriot ever. Castro loves his people, and he will love Cuba until his dying breath.

Yet look at the results. Castro’s country lies in ruins. The Cuban people own nothing, not even their own thoughts or free speech. Disagree, protest, speak out publicly, and the Castro brothers send you to prison to rot or die. People living in the country that Fidel Castro loves so much have spent the past half-century escaping through shark-infested waters in boats made of spit, glue and rubber tires. The Cuban people were willing to die to get away from the man who loves his country to death.

In all socialist countries “the state” takes care of you. “The state” knows what’s best. “The state” tells you what to think. In each and every case, all that love (and smothering state control) ruins your life.

So does Obama love America? Perhaps, but it’s clear his version of love is similar to the husband who beats his wife, all the while proclaiming “I love you honey; this is for your own good.”

That’s exactly what Walker and other GOP presidential candidates need to say when the media ask, “Does Obama love America?” That’s the perfect answer. Watch the media turn ash white and look sick to their stomachs.

No one can prove whether Obama loves America. But I do know he is destroying America. I do know Obama is Castro.

The people I trust who have dealt with Castro — the parents and grandparents of my friends in the Cuban community — all say Obama is Castro all over again. They’ve seen firsthand the lies, corruption, fraud, propaganda, massive taxation and regulation — the tyrant saying with such sincerity that he loves his country and is here to “save” it. They’ve heard him say that everything he does is for “the good of the people.” They recognize Castro when they see him, and Cubans who lived under Castro are certain Obama is Castro.

It’s not just Castro. Every socialist tin-pot dictator is the same. They all channel Saul Alinsky. Everything they say is the opposite of the truth. Everything they say is to deceive and distract. Everything they do is to bribe the poor with free stuff stolen from the middle class and business owners. The politically correct name is “income redistribution.” But it’s theft. It’s the central tenant of communism and Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.”

Rip off your opposition to make them poor and redistribute the stolen loot to the dependent poor, buying their loyalty and votes. That’s socialism. That’s Castro. And that’s Obama.

I have one more recommendation to GOP presidential candidates. When asked what you think of Giuliani’s comments, tell them you’ll answer only when they’ve asked Democratic presidential candidates if they agree with Obama’s comments that Muslim terrorists have “legitimate grievances?”

Do Democratic candidates agree with Obama that “Muslim” and “terrorist” can’t be used in the same sentence? Do they agree with his use of illegal executive orders to make law or his use of the IRS to destroy political opponents? Do they agree that illegal aliens given amnesty should collect up to $24,000 in income tax credits even though they paid no taxes?

Do they agree that $8 trillion in new debt added by Obama could destroy our economy and our children’s future?

Tell them you’ll answer their questions when you hear the Democrats’ answers to these.

It’s time to fight fire with fire. It’s time to stop bringing a knife to a gun fight. This is war. This is a battle for the very survival of America, American exceptionalism, small business, capitalism, free enterprise and free speech.

Sure, Obama loves America — just like those communist tyrants loved their country. That is, as long as they own it, control it and fundamentally change it. So perhaps the corrupt, Marxist, Muslim sympathizer, sociopath, tyrant in the White House loves America, too. You can quote me.

It’s time to speak up now, before America is gone. It’s time to stand up to evil. It’s time to stand up to bullies. It’s time to take back America from the tyrant who loves it… to death.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.

Why not prosecute Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, or Jon Corzine?

Hi I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Here we go again. The OCF (Obama Crime Family) is in full enforcer mode. Obama must have been up late two weeks ago watching “Godfather Part II” on HBO. That’s the movie where Michael Corleone takes revenge on everyone who has ever wronged him or his family. He kills them all.

After watching Obama for the past six years it is clear he’s a psychopath and ego-maniacal tyrant who doesn’t care about morality, the law, checks and balances, or the U.S. Constitution.

I’ve written extensively about the many times this administration has intimidated, persecuted and punished its critics. Obama has used the IRS, NSA, FDA, SEC, EPA; every 3-letter government organization possible to destroy his political opposition.

Take me, for example. I spoke out on Fox News, CNBC and on hundreds of conservative talk radio shows about the criminal actions of this socialist tyrant. During a NBC News special covering “a day in the White House,” NBC’s cameras even showed Obama officials panicking in the war room in reaction to my comments on Fox News.

But I’m not just any critic. I am also Obama’s Columbia College classmate, Class of ‘83. I spoke out publicly about how I believe he committed fraud to gain entrance to a college he never in a million years had the grades to get into. And guess what? His college records are sealed. At one point Donald Trump offered $10 million to the charity of Obama’s choice if he’d just release his records. But not a word.

What’s in those records that is so deadly Obama can’t let them see the light of day? You’ll notice Obama released the birth certificate, but never the college records.

You think I caught his attention? Or Valerie Jarrett’s? Suddenly, I was the victim of a vicious, over-the-top IRS attack. Five days after I won a complete victory in tax court, I was hit by a new IRS attack. Five days! Tax attorneys told me they had never heard of this happening in U.S. tax history.

Here’s the thing folks: If someone in the Obama White House made a call to the IRS to destroy Wayne Root… a crime was committed. As in a “go straight to prison” crime.

Well I’ve got news on that front. Government watchdog Judicial Watch demanded my tax files from the IRS and after a 14 month battle; we now have them in our possession. I’ll release that story with scandalous new details direct from my IRS files in the next two weeks. This will be big news. I’ve already been in contact with United States Senate investigators.

But now Obama has gone even further; with the prosecution of Democratic U.S. Senator Robert Menendez.

It’s clear Obama has tried to intimidate a member of his own crime family. Obama is sending a message to his fellow Democrats — “Embarrass me, fight me, I’ll ruin you, too. No one is off limits. I’m the king and you either follow my orders, or prepare to be destroyed.”

What did Senator Menendez of New Jersey do to Obama to deserve prosecution for a minor offense? He had the nerve to publicly disagree with Obama over Iran and Cuba. Just two days before the indictment announcement, Menendez gave a rousing speech at AIPAC condemning Obama’s Iran policy. Next thing you know: INDICTED. Coincidence? Not likely.

What were the charges? Sitting on a donor’s private plane, then doing the bidding of the donor. Are you kidding me? Every Senator and Congressmen in America does that. They’re all bought and paid for.

Hillary Clinton owed $25 million in campaign debt after her 2008 primary loss to Obama. Then she endorsed Obama and it was quietly paid off. Who made the payments? Over $2 billion dollars has been donated to the Clinton Foundation from billionaires, multinational corporations and foreign governments.

You mean there’s no conflict there? Hillary never accepted a plane ride from any of these same corporations or donors who paid off her massive debt, or funded her Clinton Foundation? She never supported a bill after receiving a donation or free plane ride?

How about her new scandal: She deleted over 30,000 emails. She has multiple email accounts. They were insecure. She claims she had the right to determine which emails were private. She made the decision what to delete. This woman was involved in prosecuting Richard Nixon. It’s clear she learned well from watching Nixon. She is the modern day Tricky Dicky. I guarantee you all her emails relating to Benghazi were deleted. The woman is a criminal.

How about Jon Corzine. He lost the New Jersey governor’s race, went back to Wall Street, and proceeded to lose $1.6 billion (with a B) of his clients’ money — money that was supposed to be protected in escrow accounts.

But Corzine was a major bundler for Obama (twice).  Lo and behold, the U.S. Justice Dept decided not to prosecute. His life moves forward without a blemish. One critic of Obama gets indicted for free plane flights, but the Obama donor is let off scott-free for stealing $1.6 billion from innocent clients.

How about Harry “Whorehouse” Reid. He could be the dirtiest politician in the U.S. Senate. He entered the U.S. Senate with little or no assets then proceeded to become one of the wealthiest men in the Senate on a $170,000 annual salary. Really? All the while doling out billions (with a B) in government contracts and green energy “investments” that ethics watchdogs call “influence peddling.”

Harry put himself in a position of great power to hand out billions. Somehow he got rich. Do you think the two are connected? But no prosecution or indictment of Harry Reid.

Interestingly, all the money that was funneled by the big Democratic donor to Menendez came through a PAC controlled by…wait for it…Harry Reid. Reid’s PAC collected $700,000 of this “dirty money” then gave $600,000 to Menendez. So why isn’t Harry Reid being indicted?

Senator Menendez poked his finger in Obama’s eye and the government decided to ruin his life. Harry Reid has been Obamas’s water boy for six years, enabling all of Obama’s deadly policies to take effect and blocking all attempts to slow him down. Harry is rewarded with no indictment, even though he was smack dab in the middle of the same alleged crime

Folks this smells…and it smells bad. It’s government intimidation and selective persecution at its finest. It’s a message from the OCF — the Obama Crime Family — to follow the orders of Obama, or face ruin, disgrace, destruction and prison. And you can bet the message was heard loud and clear in Washington.

But the worst one of all is Obama. He is the Chicago crook of all crooks. The Marxist tyrant of all tyrants. The sociopath of all sociopaths. Who will save America from the coming two-year reign of terror?

It’s clear Obama is sending a message. His last two years will be like nothing America has ever seen. The question is, after my IRS attacks, after Menendez’s indictment, who has the courage and chutzpah (besides Benjamin Netanyahu) to stand up to the tyrant?

Bibi destroys Iran and Obama with one masterful speech

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty.

Wasn’t that refreshing? Don’t you wish we had Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu as president instead of Barack Obama? I took a sampling among my friends — all smart, educated business owners, men of substance. Every one of them said if they had a choice, they’d choose Bibi over Obama for president… of the United States.

The media will concentrate on the substance of the Israeli prime minister’s speech. But let’s first look at the style. I am a business and motivational speaker who speaks all over the globe, often to audiences in the thousands. I understand communication, charisma, chutzpah and salesmanship. Bibi gets an A+ in all four categories. He delivered the speech of a lifetime.

Americans and the world just got a lesson in chutzpah. That’s the Jewish word for “balls.” No one else in the world could have pulled off what Bibi just did. Talk about a masterful speech. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu walked into a joint session of the U.S. Congress like he owned it, like he was the President of the United States. He received 29 standing ovations. If you just dropped in from another planet, you might have assumed you were watching U.S. President Netanyahu give his State of the Union.

Keep in mind Bibi is the leader of a tiny nation with the population of some anonymous, obscure African nation. Yet he held court over the U.S. Congress for almost an hour like he was the most powerful man in the world, like he was the leader of America, Russia, China, the U.K. or Germany. That takes chutzpah.

Can you imagine the looks on the faces of Barack and Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett. I’d have paid a million dollars to be a fly on that wall!

Can you imagine the looks on the faces of the leaders of every Muslim nation on Earth? The anger, shock, jealousy. Why Bibi? Why is he presiding over the U.S. Congress? Why are they fawning over his every word? Oh, to be a fly on the wall of the leaders of Iran or Qatar or Afghanistan.

How about the looks on the faces of the leaders of ISIS? Can’t you picture them saying: “Israel’s leader gets the attention of the world by addressing a joint session of Congress. We have to set fire to prisoners in cages to get anyone’s attention!”

And that vibe. Bibi gave off the vibe that he alone holds the key to saving the world. And just maybe he does.

Now to the substance of Bibi’s speech. Bibi walked onto the biggest stage in America and embarrassed Obama. He schooled him. He took him to the woodshed. And here’s the masterful part: He killed him with kindness! Bibi pulled off a speech ripping America’s president to shreds in front of the political leadership of America, in front of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, in front of the American people. And he did like only a master of communication, chutzpah and salesmanship could: by first praising him, by thanking Obama, by showering him with compliments. Then he proceeded to strip him naked and pummel him into submission.

What was the main takeaway of the speech? That you can’t reward bad behavior. That you must punish bad behavior. That you can’t agree to deals with tyrants, terrorists, liars, thieves and murderers whose word cannot be trusted.

That the only deal worth doing punishes Iran and takes away the Iranians’ nuclear capabilities until they change their behavior; until they stop supporting and funding terrorism; until they stop vowing to annihilate their neighbor Israel and kill all the Jewish people; until they check their aggressive support of militant, radical Islam all over the world. That to allow any nuclear capability for a militant Muslim nation is suicide for the entire world.

Do you understand the chutzpah of Bibi? The leader of tiny Israel was giving Obama lessons in negotiation. This was more entertaining to conservatives like me than watching “American Sniper.” I asked my family to pass the popcorn.

Bibi made three great points that emasculated Obama:

No. 1: The art of negotiating. Bibi compared negotiating with Iran to negotiating at a Persian bazaar. Hilarious, and so true. “If they threaten to walk away, let them.” Bibi said. “Because they’ll be back.” It takes an Israeli to understand the human nature of Persians, that threat of walking away is just part of a negotiation. Bibi understands that.

Can Obama be that stupid? Bibi sure made him seem that stupid. But I know Bibi knows what I know. He just can’t say it in public. Obama is not stupid. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s not on Israel’s side. So Bibi had to play a masterful game of chess with Obama. So he painted him as naïve and stupid. He embarrassed him in front of the world. He made it clear the deal Obama has negotiated is Neville Chamberlain all over again. It’s a repeat of the worst deal ever agreed to: Chamberlain’s deal with Adolf Hitler.

No. 2: Secondly, Bibi made it clear that Iran is not a normal country. It shouldn’t be treated like a normal country. It is a militant Islamic country. Obama can’t even use those words. He thinks “Islamic” is some kind of compliment. Remember we’re dealing with a man who claims Islam was a founding religion of America. Bibi understands who he is dealing with.

Bibi pointed out that Iran is a rogue terrorist state no different than ISIS. Iran is the enemy of ISIS, so Bibi had to make a very interesting point. Iran and ISIS are the same people. They want the same thing. They say it. They tweet it. Iran wrote it in its constitution. They are dedicated to killing, conquering, converting and enslaving first the entire region, then the world. Iran is fighting ISIS only to determine who gets to do it in the name of Allah. Bibi then drove the nail home, “The enemy of your enemy is your enemy.” Great line! I hope Obama was wearing a cup. If not, he may be down for a while.

No. 3: Thirdly, Bibi made a simple, clear point that the American people can understand. Forget intellectual arguments. Forget the fancy words of lawyers and Ivy Leaguers like Obama, meant to obscure, confuse, distract and deceive the people. Bibi spoke from the heart. He painted a picture of militant radical Muslims like ISIS and how they act: They cut off heads; they torture; they throw gays off buildings; they parade prisoners in cages; they set people on fire; they kill women and children; even babies are cut in half and mutilated at the hands of militant radical Muslims. And Obama wants to allow them to possess nuclear weapons? And he thinks that’s OK? He thinks they’ll change? He thinks they’ll stop being angry and aggressive with a nuclear weapon now in their hands?

No one watching can forget Bibi’s lesson: No militant Islamic state can ever be allowed to possess nuclear weapons, or it will certainly use them. No one in the world will be ever again sleep soundly. No one’s children will ever again be safe. Bibi made it clear Obama’s deal with Iran allows the country to possess nuclear weapons. It’s only a matter of when. That cannot be allowed to pass.

I think I could hear Obama and Valerie Jarrett screaming at the TV set inside the White House “war room.” Bibi embarrassed them, thrashed them, emasculated them. By the way, not only is it clear Obama does not like Israel, that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer, that Obama is trying to weaken Israel and put her people in danger; but the ruler of Obama’s White House is Jarrett. Where was she born? Iran.

Obama’s actions and negotiations are no mistake, fluke or coincidence. They are not done out of naiveté. Bibi knows that as well as I do. So he had to deconstruct this president and his Iranian-born Svengali in a nice way: in front of the Congress, in Obama’s own house.

Bibi had to kill Obama with kindness. He could not win over the American people by ripping our president in our own home stadium. So he never once named Obama as the bad guy. He never once blamed Obama for a bad deal or bad negotiations. He never said out loud, “Your president is trying to hurt Israel.” But he didn’t have to. We all know.

Bravo, Bibi. You just showed us all what a real leader looks like: someone who stands up to evil, instead of negotiating and compromising in the face of another Hitler. Bibi made his point subtly, as subtly as a jackhammer and blowtorch. Congrats Bibi, you made a lot of smart Americans wish you were our president instead of Obama.

And the bonus is we all got two for the price of one. Bibi’s speech destroyed both Iran and Obama. A two-for-one sale on the floor of the U.S. Congress? It’s kind of like a Persian bazaar.

I stand with Rudy Giuliani

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty, and I stand with Rudy Giuliani. Great job, Rudy! I just hope you have the guts to withstand the withering media attacks and stand your ground. Do not retreat. What you said was perfect. Giuliani just said what tens of millions of Americans already were thinking.

As if questioning out loud whether Barack Obama really loves America is such a controversial thing to do. How ridiculous.

Let me count the ways that would indicate to anyone who isn’t blind or a complete blithering idiot that Obama doesn’t appear to love America, is “different” in his thinking than any other president and certainly gives the strong impression his true feelings are anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Israel.

Before we get to exact quotes direct from Obama’s mouth in the past few surreal days, let’s start with the obvious. Is it a stretch to say someone, especially an American president, doesn’t seem to love America, when he shows loves and support for communist Cuba and the Castro brothers… but shows nothing but disdain for Israel?

Is it a stretch to say someone, especially an American president, doesn’t seem to love America when he meets with gusto with the head of Jihad-supporting, radical Muslim-supporting Qatar, but refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?

What about when he opens a White House terrorist summit with Muslim prayer, includes primarily Muslim participants and warmly welcomes the head of Russia’s spy agency (formerly known as the KGB), while excluding the head of America’s FBI?

What about when he refuses to admit Muslims are terrorists, while his Homeland Security lackeys label those who believe in individual rights and smaller government as the biggest terrorist threats facing America?

The media thinks it’s a “stretch” for Giuliani to see and hear all that and conclude the White House might be occupied by a radical extremist Marxist and Muslim sympathizer who doesn’t appear to love America? Maybe that’s because when I was Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, my classmates cheered and celebrated the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan… and today many of my classmates are in the national media. Those are the “unbiased” people judging Giuliani.

Well, I stand with Giuliani. I believe Giuliani is a hero for having the courage to state publicly what so many millions of Americans are thinking. I think Giuliani hit the nail right on the head.

In my national bestseller “The Murder of the Middle Class,” I predicted Obama would throw aside all attempts at moderation and compromise in his last two years as president. Since he never had to face voters again, I predicted the real Obama would emerge and that he would unleash a radical anti-American, anti-capitalism, anti-Christian, anti-Israel agenda. There is no doubt that is exactly what he has unleashed in the past few days.

We have a president who actually said Muslim terrorists have “legitimate grievances.” I wonder if Obama believes the Nazis had “legitimate grievances,” too? After all, both groups share the same grievance and goal: to murder every Jew in the world.

We have a president who described the attack by a radical Muslim who murdered four Jews in a kosher deli as “random folks shot in a deli.”

We have a president who described 21 Coptic Christians beheaded on a beach in Libya by Muslim terrorists as just some “Egyptian citizens.”

As the Islamic State beheads and burns to death prisoners in slick promotional videos, Obama’s spokeswoman proposes the solution is finding them jobs. Yes, at the direction of the president, she says this is about “jobs for jihadis.” So I ask the crucial question, “Who’s hiring?” How about Obama? I hear there’s a need for White House interns. Just keep them away from gasoline and matches.

We have a president who won’t use the words “Muslim” and terrorist in the same sentence, even at a White House terrorism summit.

That summit opened with a Muslim prayer, primarily included Muslims, excluded the head of the FBI and welcomed the head of the former KGB.

Even the former head of the CIA, James Woolsey, was flabbergasted and worried by Obama’s statements.

We have a president who claims Muslims have been “woven into our country’s fabric from the first day” — even though this is a complete lie.

There were no Muslims present at the founding of America, but we did interact with them. America’s first war as a new nation was against Muslims (the Barbary Pirates).

We have a president who not only won’t tie Muslims to terrorism, but amazingly considers conservatives and anyone who believes in individual rights to be the biggest terrorist threat.

It’s not as if we don’t have a terrorist threat from radical Islam right here, right now. It was just Sunday that we heard about a serious jihadist threat against the Mall of America — with Somali immigrants in Minnesota at the center of this frightening episode.

Yet we have a president desperate to bring more and more Muslim immigrants to our country, including Syrian refugees coming direct from the home of the Islamic State, leaving even our own even intelligence community shocked and frightened.

In the midst of all this, Obama chose to scold Christians at the annual White House prayer breakfast for actions taken hundreds of years ago during the Crusades.

Obama doesn’t just blame Christians. He blames Jews, too. He refuses to meet with the prime minister of Israel; at the same time, he meets enthusiastically with Jihad-supporting Qatar.

In light of these statements and actions of just the past few days, what exactly is wrong or “extreme” about Giuliani’s statement about the president? What conclusion would you draw? Whose side is Obama on? Obama’s thinking can only be described by any normal American as “foreign.”

Personally, I think our president is moonlighting with a second job: as the new chief lobbyist and PR man for the Muslim world. Well, at least Obama has found one job he’s good at.

Martin Luther King Jr. was right

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Martin Luther King Jr. “was fascinated by the idea of refusing to cooperate with an evil system.” King believed that “the Christian doctrine of love operating through the Gandhian method of nonviolence was one of the most potent weapons available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom.”

It is time to adopt MLK’s “doctrine” to defeat Obama. Our nation is upside down. A lie is called the truth. The truth is called intolerant or racist. A Great Depression is a “recovering economy.” Record cold and snow are signs of global warming. Low gas prices are attributed to the man whose stated goals and policies are to drive energy prices ever higher. The way to “save” the middle class is by taxing it more. Illegal aliens have the same rights as any American-born citizen. And, of course, we can’t use “Muslim” and “terrorist” in the same sentence, even if every terrorist attack is conducted by Muslims.

America’s future is going bad… fast. We have to fight back. We have to act now to take back the country from the evil destroying it.

How bad are things? We have a president who described the attack by a radical Muslim who murdered four Jews in a kosher deli as “random folks shot in a deli.”

We have a president who described 21 Coptic Christians beheaded on a beach in Libya by Muslim terrorists because they were Christians as “Egyptian citizens.” 

We have an administration that, as ISIS beheads and burns to death prisoners, proposes the solution is finding “jobs for jihadis.”

We have a president who has set up a hotline for illegal aliens to complain about border agents “violating their rights.”

We have a president more concerned about the rights of Muslim terrorists, Gitmo detainees and illegal aliens than you and me.

We have a president more willing to negotiate with murdering mullahs in Iran than negotiate with Republicans in Congress.

We have a president who orders the release of tens of thousands of illegal alien felons, putting them back on the streets to rob, rape and murder.

We have a president who orders the IRS to audit honest businessmen… but gives $24,000 checks to illegal aliens.

Thanks to Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, we know we have a president who committed fraud to sell Obamacare and bankrupt the middle class he thinks of as “too stupid to understand.” He told lies, including “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” and “The average middle class consumer’s cost will go down.” All lies, fraud and misrepresentation.

King advocated nonviolent resistance to fight evil. Here are four nonviolent actions we can take to slow or stop the evil that is destroying America and our children’s future:

Action 1: The New York City police showed us the first way. Mayor Bill de Blasio made clear his distaste and disrespect for the police, the same way Obama has made clear his distaste for the military, law enforcement, border agents, business owners and the U.S. Constitution.

Just as police stood with their backs to de Blasio, concerned citizens and patriots — especially Republican senators and congressmen — need to turn their backs to Obama wherever he appears.

King knew visual images like this change public opinion. Turning our backs on the individual perpetrating the evil can paint a picture that independent and “undecided” citizens need to see. They need to know it’s deadly serious and it’s time to stop worrying about political correctness.

GOP political leaders need to stop making believe we don’t have a Muslim sympathizer in the White House, a fraud willing to lie and illegally target, persecute and intimidate his critics. They need to stop making believe he isn’t a criminal willing to violate the U.S. Constitution. They need to stop making believe Obama isn’t consciously implementing a purposeful plan to destroy America by bankrupting taxpayers under a blizzard of taxes, regulations and debt and by showering illegal aliens with amnesty, massive entitlements, free healthcare and, of course, the right to vote without being citizens.

Stand up, America. We must all admit the truth and show our anger by standing with our backs to the president. What Obama is doing to America is no different than what de Blasio is doing to the New York City police. Standing with our back to Obama is a perfect example of King’s nonviolent resistance.

Action 2: We must use the courts, filing lawsuit after lawsuit against Obama’s illegal actions. On Monday, a federal judge blocked Obama’s amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. We must use the liberal trick of “law-suiting” Obama to death. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! Another perfect example of King’s nonviolent resistance.

Action 3: We must use states’ rights to destroy Obama’s plans. Exhibit A: Each state, at least those led by GOP governors, should pass a law making it a crime for noncitizens to attempt to register to vote with a mandatory five years in prison, $100,000 fine and deportation after prison. Then start a PR campaign in Spanish and conduct high-profile prosecutions. Democrats will find it very difficult to get illegal volunteers to the voting booth. Another perfect example of King’s nonviolent resistance.

Action 4: Our GOP Congress must find the courage to impeach Obama. Simple. There are so many obvious and clear charges. Lead with Obama’s use of fraud to pass Obamacare. Charge Gruber and force him to give evidence and roll over on Obama to avoid life in prison for being the architect of the first trillion-dollar fraud in world history.

This is how we stop evil in America. Without resorting to violence. King would be proud.

Did Obama really say: ‘I will stand with the Muslims?’

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Do words matter? I think they do. I think we all need to take a man at his word. Barack Obama’s words from his own life story are under debate, yet should be of interest to all of us. Many conservatives attribute these words to Obama from his autobiography, “I will stand with the Muslims.” Those were not his exact words. But his actions indicate it is exactly what he meant.

Many defenders of Obama say that is too simplistic of an interpretation and the words have been taken out of context. The reference came in a paragraph where Obama discussed prejudice against different races and religions. He made it clear that it’s unfair for people to jump to conclusions and tar all members of one race or religion with the deeds of one small group of people. Defenders of Obama believe he promised only to defend Muslims against that kind of prejudice. They interpret his words to mean he promised to defend Muslims against the kind of unfair internment faced by Japanese-Americans during World War II.

I agree Obama’s remarks are open to interpretation. The problem is his actions today are so toxic as to convince many of us that he meant the words, “I will stand with the Muslims.” Judge for yourself. Actions speak louder than words.

Obama just made the most amazing statement at the National Prayer Breakfast. He blamed Christianity for “terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” 

Did Obama really go there? A supposed Christian condemning Christianity for something that happened in the Dark Ages. The president of our nation condemning Christians for something all warriors for every religion did a thousand years ago: kill in the name of religion.

But today, only one religion is still killing like it’s the Dark Ages: Islam. Today, there are only “terrible deeds in the name of Allah.”

Were Americans who elected and re-elected Obama like the Jews of Nazi Germany, too naive to understand or believe a leader’s own words? Hitler said he’d kill the Jews. But Jews just couldn’t believe it. “It’s just hype and propaganda to get votes,” they thought. They guessed wrong.

Have Obama’s defenders guessed wrong, too?

Obama refuses to actually fight the Islamic State (which Obama calls ISIL) with a real plan. Yes, he’ll drop a few bombs from thousands of feet in the air, to make it look like we’re fighting ISIL. Yes, he says he’s got ISIL defeated. Results prove that’s an absurd lie. ISIL is stronger than ever. Ask that Jordanian pilot burned to death in a cage. Ask Kurds fighting for their lives.

Even decorated generals believe Obama has no plan to fight ISIL. But why would Obama make false claims when there is no plan? Is he stalling for time? The more time Obama wastes, the stronger ISIL becomes. If Obama stalls long enough, ISIL will become unbeatable. ISIL will be “here to stay.”

But why would any U.S. President have that agenda? In that context, don’t these words ring true? ”I will stand with the Muslims.”

Obama has no serious interest in helping Israel defeat Hamas either. Moderate Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt and United Araba Emirates are giving more support to Israel than America under Obama.

But why would any U.S. president have that agenda? In that context, don’t these words ring true? ”I will stand with the Muslims.”

Obama has left our Southern border with Mexico wide open for six long years. Even Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein believes Islamic terrorist cells have slipped across our border.

An ISIL operative claims that 4,000 terrorists have been smuggled into Western states. What kind of a president would keep our border wide open and unsecured? What could be his agenda?

But why would any U.S. president have that agenda? In that context, don’t these words ring true? ”I will stand with the Muslims.”

Obama (in concert with the United Nations) has suspended immigration laws to import thousands of Muslims into America from war zones like Iraq, Somalia and Syria. He’s bringing the same violent, radicalized Muslims to America who have led to crisis, intolerance, terror attacks and crisis in Europe.

But why would any U.S. president have that agenda? In that context, don’t these words ring true? ”I will stand with the Muslims.”

Obama and the Democrats are in such denial about who our enemy is that dozens of Democratic leaders in Congress (including the vice president of the United States) are threatening to boycott the address to Congress by the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Now, as if to emphasize where he stands, Obama goes back to the Dark Ages to blame Christianity for the sins of Islam today. He lectures us about “terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

Using Obama’s logic,

  • Should we blame all African-Americans today for the “terrible deeds in name of the Black Panthers of the 1960s?”
  • Should we blame all Germans today for “terrible deeds in name of Hitler in the 1940s?”
  • Should we blame every Japanese American for “terrible deeds by Imperial Japan at Pearl Harbor?”
  • Should we blame all white Southerners today for “terrible deeds by the KKK?”
  • Should we blame all baseball players today for “terrible deeds by racist baseball players in the 1950s?”
  • Should we blame all Italians today for “terrible deeds in the name of the Roman Empire?”
  • Should we blame all American Indians today for “terrible deeds in the name of Apache Indian raids on American settlers?”

How absurd to go back in time hundreds or thousands of years to try to twist logic and common sense, so as to deflect proper blame for something happening today.

There is one enemy of America, Christianity and good people of faith all over the world today. It isn’t Judaism or Christianity or Buddhism or Catholicism; it is radical Islam. It is Islamic terrorism. It is ISIL. It is jihad. Spell it how you want. Obama is taking great pains and irrational leaps to cover up for Islam.

Yes, Obama’s words are open to interpretation. He did not say verbatim “I will stand with the Muslims.” There was nuance. There was a second part to the statement. He couched his statement based on unfair prejudice and even internment. Obama did exactly what his mentor Saul Alinsky taught him to do- disguise your statements, distract the masses, camouflage your true intensions and hide your radical agenda. But at the root of Obama’s statement was the truth.

I believe Obama’s actions make the true meaning of his words clear. Obama may not have said the exact words “I will stand with the Muslims.” But he sure meant them.

Now we know what side he’s on. The real question is: Just how far will he go?

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.

My neighbor, Harry Reid

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. My U.S. senator is perhaps the worst in the history of the U.S. Senate: Harry Reid. He’s certainly the worst senator of my lifetime: the past 53 years. Amazingly, Reid isn’t just my senator, he’s my neighbor. Reid and I live only a couple of blocks apart in Henderson, Nevada, inside beautiful Anthem Country Club.

Can you imagine? We should do a reality TV show together called “The Odd Couple.” Harry Reid, the enabler for the Marxist agenda of the worst president in U.S. history, lives only a stone’s throw from “the Capitalist Evangelist” and ultimate Tea Party warrior Wayne Allyn Root. What a pair of neighbors. One in a million.

From my second story deck, I’m looking at Reid’s home. I’m just a stone’s throw away. And there are times I’ve thought of throwing that stone. Just kidding. Besides, Reid is doing a good enough job of hurting himself. A while back, he fell while jogging. Just a few weeks ago, he hurt himself lifting weights. Reid’s so feeble, in such decline, I actually feel sorry for him. I wish him a wonderful retirement. It’s clearly time for golf, grandchildren and cruises to Mexico. But one thing is for sure: Reid cannot continue as one of the leaders of the U.S. Senate and one of the most important and powerful men in the free world.

This is getting embarrassing. Poor Reid has clearly reached well beyond his “past due” date as a U.S. Senator. If he were an airline pilot, he would have been forced to retire a decade ago — long before he started falling down and hurting himself. If he were a CEO, his board of directors would have forcedly retired him years ago. If he were a typical government employee, he’d have retired to a life of leisure at age 50. That was almost three decades ago.

So why is Reid allowed to stay in his U.S. Senate seat until the day he dies? Will he be allowed to serve in the Senate while he’s pushed to his seat in a wheelchair and spoon-fed by a nurse?

At what age is enough enough? Shouldn’t a world leader be held to the same standards as a pilot? That pilot has to retire at age 65 — even if he’s in perfect mental and physical shape. Why? It’s because after age 65, people start to fail. Bad things start to happen. You can’t let a pilot decide for himself when it’s time to go. For the good of society, that decision is made for the pilot at a specific age.

We can’t have elderly pilots flying planes with 200 or 300 souls on board when they suffer a stroke, seizure or heart attack or fall down and can’t get up. So why would we want a U.S. Senator, whose actions affect our economy, jobs, taxes and healthcare, still making important decisions, long after their “past due” date?

Is Reid capable of making competent decisions at this point? We know for a fact he has suffered strokes while in office. He fell down jogging and got a nasty black eye not long ago. Then, weeks ago, Reid had a far more serious episode. The claim is he was badly hurt while exercising. He claims to have been using a band-based weight machine when the band snapped, hitting him in the face and knocking him unconscious with severe injuries. He had broken ribs, a severe concussion and terrible eye injuries that threatened the loss of his sight. From exercise?

I’m a fitness enthusiast. I understand exercise very well. It’s been the foundation of my life for 38 years. In all those years, I’ve never heard of someone getting a black eye from jogging. In all those years, I’ve also never heard of a serious injury from using an amateurish, cheap band weight machine.

To make matters worse (and stranger) Reid’s staff further disclosed his injury occurred in the bathroom of his home. His bathroom? Do you know anyone who lifts weights in the bathroom? The story is just too strange to believe. But either way, this is clearly not a man capable of doing the most important job in our country.

Here’s a man who did great damage to our economy and country as U.S. Senate majority leader. He was the chief enabler and water-carrier for the massive expansion of government, spending, taxes, regulation and debt under President Obama. Reid enabled Obama to depress the private sector with the most regulations in history, killing millions of jobs, suffocating the middle class, destroying the greatest healthcare system in the world, making the coal industry extinct and blocking the Keystone Pipeline (thereby dramatically raising all of our electric bills), giving amnesty to illegal aliens and allowing Obama to violate the U.S. Constitution again and again.

Reid achieved all this while purposely preventing the U.S. Senate from voting on any bill that might help the economy, or undo the damage of Obama’s socialist nanny state policies. Reid refused to allow bills to be voted on, for fear of hurting the re-election campaigns of his fellow Democratic senators. He even presided over “the nuclear option” that he swore he’d never allow to pass — for the first time in history, allowing bills and appointments to pass the Senate with merely a simple majority.

Term limits would have forced Reid out of the Senate before any of that could have happened. What a blessing that would have been for America and the U.S. economy.

Now add in Reid’s declining health and fading ability to competently take care of himself, let alone the country, and you have a clear recipe for disaster. Reid is indeed the poster child for term limits.

From now on, I’d suggest “The Harry Reid Rule.” All politicians should be limited to two terms: one term in office, and one term in prison.

The amazing arrogance and stupidity of Barack Obama

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Remember when George W. Bush damaged his presidency and legacy by arrogantly proclaiming “mission accomplished” on an aircraft carrier as he announced the end of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? He looked foolish when thousands more American soldiers came home in body bags and tens of thousands more were badly injured.

The reality Bush didn’t understand was that this was only the beginning of a guerrilla war using terrorist tactics. The biased liberal media, of course, never let the American public forget Bush’s mistake. They called him dumb and arrogant.

The question now is what do you call someone stupid enough to repeat the same mistake as his predecessor? You call him Barack Obama.

In his State of the Union address, a smug, arrogant Obama just declared “mission accomplished” on multiple fronts. He gloated that the economy is booming and the “fact” that he has defeated ISIS. Obama told Americans the recession is over, that it’s time to move on. He said it’s old news and it’s time to ignore any mention of hard times.

Really? If Bush was dumb and arrogant for announcing “mission accomplished,” what does that make Obama for repeating the same mistake? Is there a word for stupid squared?

It’s clear ISIS isn’t defeated. If anything, ISIS is getting stronger every day. The terrorists are laughing in our face as they behead more hostages, capture more territory and actually publicly threaten the president of the United States.

And the economy? Within days of Obama’s State of the Union “mission accomplished” speech, bad economic news came in droves. Obama’s policies and never ending new regulations are not helping the economy; they are destroying it.

Only days after Obama’s speech, it was disclosed that 50,000 bank employees were laid off in December (only days before the speech). Yes, I said 50,000 in one month.

But Wall Street wasn’t alone. EBay announced massive layoffs only days after Obama’s State of the Union — about 7 percent of its workforce.

American Express just laid off 4,000 employees (about 6 percent of its workforce).

Baker Hughes announced layoffs of 7,000 (about 11 percent of its workforce) the same week.

Energy and oil companies announced the layoffs of thousands and predicted 20,000 more could lose their jobs in one North Dakota town by summer.

Forbes is reporting that IBM will soon announce layoffs of 100,000 employees (25 percent of its workforce), although IBM denies that number.

Teen clothing retailer Wet Seal just declared bankruptcy and closed 338 stores.

Retailers like Macy’s and J.C. Penny are closing stores and laying off thousands of employees. Retailers are closing thousands of stores after a poor Christmas shopping season and laying off hundreds of thousands of employees. A poor Christmas shopping season? Funny, but that doesn’t sound like Obama “saved” the economy, does it?

Durable goods orders in America have literally collapsed.

Earlier this week, the stock market plunged 500 points on news of disastrous earnings reports from major companies across the U.S. Not only are companies reporting terrible fourth-quarter results, but they are severely downgrading their 2015 sales and profits predictions.

More terrible news. The entire EU is on the verge of collapse. It just happens to be America’s No. 1 trading partner.

Recovery? For the first time in history, a majority of public school students in America live in poverty.

For the first time in history, more businesses are failing each day than opening.

For the first time in history, there are more people on welfare, food stamps and other handouts than working in the private sector.

Americans on disability are up by 50 percent.

Food stamp use topped 46 million for the 38th straight month.

We have the lowest workforce participation rate in modern history.

Almost 100 million working-age Americans aren’t working. 

And 107 million Americans are on some form of welfare. Is it a coincidence that about the same number are unemployed as collecting welfare?

And all of this “success” and “saving” of the economy was achieved by adding $8 trillion to the national debt in only six years. Obama has exploded the debt by an unimaginable 70 percent.

The Director of the CBO just called the debt “unsustainable” and predicts we are the verge of fiscal crisis.

Not surprisingly, economist Robert Johnson reports the wealthiest hedge fund managers and other assorted Wall Street bankers and billionaires fear instability, unrest and riots and are busy buying farms in New Zealand to escape the violence to come.

Oh, and even if you believe the lie that the economy is doing wonderful, it’s all at the expense of our future. Interest rates are at zero. Raise them even a few points and just the interest on our skyrocketing debt will eat up the entire U.S. budget. Now add in the cost of Obamacare (just revealed at $50,000 per person over the next decade), and all the taxes in the world won’t pay for the interest on the debt. Our economy will be overwhelmed. Like Humpty Dumpty, no one will ever be able to pick up the pieces again.

The Great Recession isn’t over. We may actually be in the eye of an economic hurricane. Remember, it’s calm and quiet in the eye of a hurricane. It seems like the worst is over. But the worst is yet to come — it’s on the other side of the eye.

The stats above make it clear there is no recovery. Obama didn’t “save” the economy. He simply lied… again. He just made it up. Obama is proof of the saying “Liars make the best promises.”

So now you can add to the list of the great lies of all time:

  • “Mission accomplished.”
  • “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.”
  • “The shadow of the crisis has passed… Tonight we turn the page…”

Those words are a testament to the arrogance and stupidity of Obama. Get ready for the second more deadly half of the hurricane.

An important message for Bill Maher

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. And I have an important message for Bill Maher and his HBO show: Stop lying!

I sat in amazement watching Maher’s HBO show a couple of weeks ago. How many lies, exaggerations, misrepresentations and delusions can HBO — and guests like Jay Leno and even Republican Carla Fiorina — allow Maher to get away with in one show? Yes, Maher is only a comedian and entertainer, not a serious journalist. But here’s why it matters. Maher’s lies and propaganda are exactly the same lies as those told by every Obama supporter, Democratic members of Congress and the mainstream media.

Each of these lies is easily debunked. That’s why Maher only allows conservative guests who are boring, weak-willed, milquetoast and afraid to challenge him — and makes certain they are outnumbered and intimidated.

Call out the lies and aggressively debate Maher, and he won’t allow you on the show ever again. How do I know? Because it happened to me. I was a guest on Maher’s show “Politically Incorrect” four times in one year. His producers told me that was more than any other guest in America that year. Maher’s producers said they booked me repeatedly because I was (and I quote) “a dynamic, entertaining communicator and one of the few guests gutsy enough to aggressively debate Bill.” I actually got ovations from his liberal audience.

That was a combination Maher could not allow. And after my fourth appearance, the producers told me Maher would never allow me on the show again. The irony is this is the same man who spent half his show defending the importance of “free speech” in the wake of the jihadist terrorist attack in France.

Each week, Maher finds a way to label anyone with my conservative and capitalist views “radical” and “extreme.” That’s despite the fact that only 11 weeks ago these same views won in the biggest national landslide in the history of modern politics. That’s despite the fact that polls prove that in all 50 states conservatives outnumber those identifying themselves as liberals.

When liberals like Barack Obama, Harry Reid or media hotshots like Maher call popular views like mine “radical” and “extreme,” they are lying and committing slander. This slash-and-burn strategy was created by communist Saul Alinsky. They get away with it by repeating the lie again and again — and by banning anyone who can win a debate from appearing on the same stage.

Maher’s show has deteriorated into three or four liberals ganging up (bullying is probably the right word) against one frightened and intimidated conservative. Those of us who can’t be bullied are banned from Maher’s show.

Since Maher is too insecure to debate me face to face, let me tackle his lies right here.

The narrative provided by Maher is that the Obama economy is doing great: GDP is up dramatically, unemployment is way down, healthcare costs are down and Obama has lowered the deficit. Maher basically dared the GOP to run against the magnificent Obama economy. These are the same lies told by every Democratic member of Congress, and the GOP lets them get away with these lies. Here is how you debunk them.

First, no sooner was I out in the media trashing this idea that we are in “recovery” and Obama policies have produced a good economy than the news came out that 50,000 jobs were terminated last month in just one industry: banking.

Why were they terminated? Because bank revenues are the lowest in eight decades. What was eight decades ago? That was smack dab in the middle of the Great Depression. Does that sound like a good economy to you?

The economy is not “recovering” or “healthy” for anyone but corporate elite and billionaires, although the news of 50,000 bank employees terminated in one month may be proof even the corporate elite are now joining the suffering. Join the club. Main Street and small business have been dying for six long years under Obama. Just as my bestselling book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” warned, the American middle class has been systematically slaughtered. For the first time in history, our middle class is no longer No. 1 in the world; Canada’s is.

For the first time in history, more businesses are failing each day than opening.

For the first time in history, there are more people on welfare, food stamps and other handouts than working in the private sector.

We have the lowest workforce participation rate in modern history.

For men, it’s the lowest in recorded history.

As a matter of fact, there is only one place in all of America where the labor participation rate rose under Obama: Washington, D.C. The only one hiring is Obama, and he’s doing it with your taxpayer money!

Almost 100 million working-age Americans aren’t working.

In this Obama economy, 40 percent of American workers now earn less than the minimum wage in 1968.

Some 107 million Americans are on some form of welfare.

If we add in Medicare, Medicaid and people working for government, more than 165 million Americans — about half the population — are dependent on a government check.

This is Maher’s definition of success? This cannot go unchallenged by conservatives.

Obama’s supporters claim healthcare costs are down while GDP is up. Really? Here are the facts. Health insurance premiums have gone up more in the past year than in the eight years prior to Obamacare.

In California individual health insurance premiums are up as much as 88 percent.

Many families across the country are paying double or triple, yet are stuck with higher deductibles and fewer benefits.

And that is precisely why GDP was up. Almost the entire increase in third quarter GDP was fueled by the massive increase in healthcare costs due to Obamacare.

So let me get this scam correctly. Obama’s voters get “free” healthcare, while middle-class America and small business gets bankrupted with the huge bill. Our health insurance premiums are skyrocketing, destroying our quality of life, and Obama calls that proof that GDP is up. That’s an achievement?

Conservatives need to attack aggressively. The idea that GDP is rising because of higher healthcare costs that are bankrupting middle-class Americans is not a reason to celebrate. It’s a reason to hang Democrats!

But wait, the lies get bigger. If the GDP increase for one quarter was primarily produced by increased healthcare spending, then how can Obama’s defenders claim that healthcare spending is down? Where did they get that lie from? Jonathan Gruber? The left just makes up lies, and no one challenges them. My health insurance bill went from $500 per month to $1,700 under Obama. Challenge these lies. This message will resonate with middle-class consumers (and voters).

Next, Obama’s defenders claim unemployment is down. How could it be down if the workforce participation rate is the lowest in history? The answer is fraud. The government doesn’t count the people no longer looking for jobs or who don’t want a job (who would rather sit home collecting welfare). True unemployment is at Great Depression levels.

Worse, the jobs being created are crappy, low-wage, part-time jobs.

I’m basing this on facts. Think of the most liberal city in America: New York City. From 2008 to 2013, only 194,000 jobs were created in New York City. That’s a disaster. But listen to this: 191,000 of them were low-wage or part-time jobs. Only 3,000 were middle-class jobs.

Can you imagine what liberals would say if a white Republican were president and every job created was flipping burgers, mowing lawns or cleaning toilets? They’d say he was trapping minorities in a life of poverty and hopelessness. But a black liberal president receives congratulations. Amazing.

Democrats also crow about the stock market under Obama. Republicans go along with this narrative. Well, a rising stock market based on good news and positive economic fundamentals would be great. But a rising stock market based on fake money printing by the Fed, misleading economic stats and massive debt is not so great. Actually, it’s a tragedy. Our stock market under Obama resembles the subprime mortgage crisis. It’s a debt bubble about to pop.

The stock market is up because Obama has added almost $8 trillion in debt. Fact: The debt is up a staggering 70 percent since Obama took office.

This is the “secret sauce” that has produced Obama’s “success.” It adds up to the world’s largest Ponzi scheme. We’ve printed trillions in fake dollars to make the stock market go up for the corporate elite (Obama’s biggest donors), to prop up union pension funds (to benefit Obama’s biggest union supporters), and to pay for 107 million Americans on welfare and food stamps (Obama’s most loyal voters). But the mountain of debt is like a credit card credit line that will soon explode, destroying our country and our children’s future. Every politician who supported it should be in jail.

Anyone can use credit cards and mortgages they can’t afford to look like they’re rich. But when the bill comes due, the whole scheme comes crashing down. America under Obama is one big fraud. The “prosperity” is a mirage, propped up by debt. We are living on borrowed credit.

Debt is a cancer that kills every country it has ever touched. Study ancient Greece or the Roman Empire. Or ask Venezuela. They are following the exact Obama game plan. They now have massive unrest, starving citizens, food and toilet paper shortages, and the highest stock market in history!

Obama has corrupted and destroyed the system. It’s rigged to make the stock market go up, while hiding the fact that he’s piling up the most debt in world history, mortgaging our future, destroying the middle class and driving most of the workforce into poverty and government dependency.

Then there’s the lie that Obama has reduced the deficit. Well, this fantastic “reduced” deficit is still higher than the highest deficit under Bush. But let’s give credit where credit is due. The deficit is down due to you and me: the taxpayers. Obama pushed through the highest tax increases in history. We’re all paying much higher taxes. That’s why the deficit is down. How is that an achievement?

Middle-class America has been fleeced so Obama can brag he’s reduced the deficit. Is the GOP really this stupid? They can’t figure this out? Higher taxes have produced the highest inflow of government revenue in history, which has reduced the deficit.

That’s not an achievement; it’s a rip-off.

Finally, let’s throw in one more massive lie. Government claims inflation is low. Really? Electric rates are at an all-time high. Health insurance premiums are at an all-time high. College costs are at an all-time high. And food you buy to feed your family is at an all-time high — from beef to chicken to eggs to veggies. It’s all up dramatically under Obama.

But our corrupt government removed all of those middle-class staples of life from their inflation index. It’s pure fraud. While they claim no inflation, we all have no jobs, no wage increases for anyone lucky enough to still have a job and massive inflation on all the products that matter.

The entire Obama economic “recovery” is a lie. It’s all based on lies, misrepresentations, pure fraud in some cases, higher taxes, massive debt and on the income redistribution of money from the middle class to the poor and the corporate elite. The rest of us are either drowning or hanging on for dear life.

Hey, Bill Maher, are you reading this? I’ve got an important message for you and your show: Stop lying! By the way, I’m available anytime to debate your lies, fantasy and propaganda. “Call me. Let’s do lunch, babe.”

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.
