Is Obama A Jinx Upon America?

Have you heard? China is set to pass America as the world’s No. 1 economy — this year.

For many years now, we’ve been told this day of reckoning was years, if not decades, away. We always knew it would come someday. But under the leadership and economic policies of President Barack Obama, it’s suddenly jumped way ahead of all previous projections.

What an embarrassment. The United States has had the unchallenged No. 1 economy in world since 1872 (when we passed the United Kingdom). Since 1872. Eighteen hundred and seventy-two. Let that sink in for a while.

One hundred and forty-two years of world dominance erased in only six years under one man’s leadership.

But wait. As an infomercial pitchman might say, “There’s much more.”

The same thing happening to the economy is happening to the American quality of life. Under Obama, for the first time in history our middle class isn’t No. 1 in the world. Canada’s middle class is now No. 1. And the entire rest of the world is catching up fast. Soon we’ll be No. 10, then No. 20. How low can we go?

The same thing is happening to entrepreneurs and small business. For the first time in history, businesses in America are being destroyed faster than they are starting. Amazing.

Under Obama, there are now more food-stamp recipients than the number of women working full-time in America.

Under Obama, the average full-time male employee now earns less (adjusted for inflation) than 40 years ago.

Under Obama, there are now 70 percent more Americans collecting entitlement checks than working in the private sector (148 million “takers” versus 86 million “makers”). This isn’t a conservative opinion. It’s a fact provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Under Obama, the number of working-age Americans not in the labor force is at all-time highs.

Under Obama, the workplace participation rate of men is the lowest in history.

Under Obama, the workforce participation rate of women is the lowest on record.

Under Obama, the workforce participation rate for black Americans is the lowest in history.

More than 800,000 people dropped out of the workforce last month. That’s almost 1 million Americans who have given up… in a month.

Because millions of the unemployed have given up looking for work, the unemployment rate has dropped to 6.3 percent. Obama calls that good news. Heck, at this rate the whole nation might give up looking for a job by the time Obama leaves office; and he’ll report we have reached full employment.

One man – Obama — has done that much damage. So forget the debate over whether Obama is a radical Marxist intent on the destruction of capitalism and America or whether he’s an inexperienced, incompetent, economically ignorant megalomaniac.

Does it really matter?

Obama is like the old joke about a dying man lying in the hospital with his wife of 50 years:

Murray is lying on his death bed in a hospital room. His wife Ida sits by his side.

Murray says, “Ida, you’ve always been by my side.

“You were there when I flunked out of college.

“You were there when I was fired from my first job.

“You were there when I opened a business and it failed.

“You were there when I filed for bankruptcy.

“You were there when I was paralyzed in the car crash.

“Now you’re here by my side as I lay dying of cancer.

“I’ve given this a lot of thought.

“Ida, darling, you’re a jinx. Get the hell out of my hospital room!”

At some point, you just have to conclude that Obama is our jinx. It doesn’t matter if it’s on purpose, or by mistake. The man is ruining our lives, our economy, our jobs and, most importantly, our children’s future.

And by the way, it isn’t just America he’s brought bad luck to. Obama hasn’t exactly been a good-luck charm for the people of the EU, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea or Ukraine either.

Obama is quite simply a jinx. Bad news. A storm cloud from hell. A walking disaster. He destroys whatever he touches — except for China and Russia. Those two evil empires suddenly turned best friends forever are thriving. All of our losses appear to be their gains.

Remember when Obama leaned over and whispered to the President of Russia that after his re-election he’d have “more flexibility” to help out Putin? Don’t look now, but it’s happening exactly as Obama whispered. I’m just surprised he didn’t whisper in Russian.

It seems every country in the world has been badly damaged by the policies of Obama — except Russia and China. Our decline is their shining moment. Suddenly, the world is Putin’s oyster. Suddenly, our military is a feckless joke, incapable of stopping Russia’s expansion plans. Suddenly, our obsession with green energy allows Russia’s economy to soar with energy revenues. Suddenly, our economy is stuck in reverse, while China’s economy explodes. Coincidence?

Funny how all this worked out. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Is John Boehner Stupid, Bought, Or On The Other Side?

Scroll down for Root’s video commentary.

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

Something is wrong with the most powerful Republican in the United States Congress. Speaker of the House John Boehner is either stupid, bought and paid for by crony corporate interests, or he’s on the other side (a Democrat posing as a Republican). Because nothing else explains the news that the GOP intends to pass immigration reform (i.e. amnesty) this year.

You might be wondering how I know it’s “amnesty?” Because to pass it through Harry Reid’s Senate and to avoid a veto from President Obama, it must include some form of amnesty for illegal immigrants (i.e. future Democratic voters). Nothing could ever pass Harry Reid’s Senate that doesn’t include some form of amnesty, allowing Democrats to wear the crown of conquering heroes to the Latino community and therefore garner more votes for Team Obama in November.

Democrats are about to be crushed. They are drowning. They are desperate to shuffle the deck. Why would any sane GOP leader throw them a life preserver?

Chuck Schumer — the ultimate liberal — is winking and nodding on Sunday morning TV shows like it’s a done deal. Do you think he’s winking because he’s just agreed in the backroom to a deal that hurts Democratic voters? Do you think the President that has, for all intents and purposes halted deportations, would agree to any bill that sells illegal immigrants down the river? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in… Mexico.

Now let’s examine why even discussing (let alone passing) any immigration bill is self-destructive, stupid and political suicide for Republicans.

First, Democrats are on the run. They are about to be destroyed in November. Every poll shows it. Every bit of common sense tells the same story. Every conversation with average middle class Americans proves it. Obamacare has ruined Obama and the Democratic Party. The latest poll shows Obama at 41 percent approval. There are literally no voters left to support Obama who aren’t being bribed with a government check. Just as I reported earlier this year, Obama’s support among the actual taxpayers, business owners and homeowners of America is darn close to zero.

Knowing this, why would the leader of Congressional Republicans want to change the conversation? Why would he want to let Obama off the hook? Why would he discuss anything but Obamacare for the next six months? Doesn’t Boehner want to win? When you’ve got the opposition on the run, why would you lift your boot off their neck? Makes me wonder which team he’s playing for? What about you?

Why wouldn’t any sane GOP leader keep talking Obamacare 24/7 for six months in a row, until the clock runs out? Millions have lost their coverage; millions more have had premiums raised; millions have lost their doctors; everyone that can think is steaming mad.

The vast majority of people who got free insurance from Obamacare are virtually 100 percent government-addicted, welfare-loving, food stamp-loving, dependent Democratic voters. Obama hasn’t picked up one vote. But he’s gotten millions of independents mad as a hornet’s nest.

To change the conversation now would be dereliction of duty. If this were the military, General Boehner would be relieved of his command and brought up on criminal charges. He is harming his own troops. He is purposely losing the war. He is pulling defeat from the jaws of victory. Who does that?

Secondly, my grandfather taught me about how to treat your loyal customers. He was a successful small business owner. He always said the key to success was “the customer is always right.” Why would Boehner poke a stick in the eyes of his best customers? Why would he mock conservatives? Why would he turn off his loyal conservative base now, on the precipice of a landslide in November? It defies logic.

Third and most importantly, if everyone “in the know” believes the GOP is on the verge of a massive landslide victory (and they are), why would you even think of negotiating an immigration reform bill now? Think about it. Now it’s a lose/lose. Obama and Reid hold all the cards. But starting in January of 2015, with a GOP Senate and House; and Obama an embarrassed, emasculated lame duck; the GOP would hold all the cards.

What Republican leader would be dumb enough to pass the bill now? Wait until 2015 and instead of begging for crumbs, the GOP is dictating the terms of Obama’s surrender. What sane leader would trade a win/win for a lose/lose scenario?

Into this situation steps John Boehner, leader of the party that practices shooting itself in the foot. Boehner is theoretically on our side, yet he wants to let Democrats off the hook for Obamacare; change the conversation to something divisive and controversial; demoralize and anger his own best customers; hand a moral victory to Obama; inspire the Democrats’ core voters; and negotiate from the worst possible position, instead of waiting just a few months to negotiate from the best possible position.

Does any of this make sense to you? So I ask you…

Is John Boehner stupid, bought and paid for, or on the other side? He’s either not thinking clearly, or he’s not on our side. No matter your answer, it’s now clear Boehner has to go.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. God Bless America and save us from the Marxist in the White House intent on destroying capitalism and wiping out the middle class… and the feckless, floundering, cowardly or traitorous Republicans in Congress who refuse to stand up to him.

Here’s Why Harry Reid Is Calling Patriots ‘Domestic Terrorists’

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called patriots “domestic terrorists.” He used the term to describe anyone who thinks the raid at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada was government overreach and intimidation — like me. You mean sending 200 heavily armed troops, snipers, helicopters, airplanes and rendering trucks (to transport dead cattle) isn’t government overreach?

Isn’t that strange? Isn’t that bizarre? Well, actually, no. It makes perfect sense. Barack Obama’s supporters (like Harry Reid) have learned well about demonization, intimidation, slander and vicious attacks. Obama’s mentor, communist organizer Saul Alinsky, taught his followers that “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” He defined political opponents as “the enemy.” He advised: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” 

Alinsky’s strategy was to attack, attack and attack some more. He advised his Marxist followers to demonize your opponent with exactly what you see in the mirror. In other words, if you’re the radical, call your political opponents “radical.” If you’re extreme, call them “extreme.” If you’re a domestic terrorist, call them a “domestic terrorist.” That’s how you distract and deflect: by spreading misinformation. That’s how you take the spotlight off your radical views: by painting the other guy as “radical.”

So calling conservatives who want to defend the Constitution by the name “domestic terrorists” makes perfect sense, because Reid is looking right into the mirror.

The facts of just the past few days have proven Obama, Reid (the man who carries Obama’s water in the U.S. Senate) and their entire Marxist cabal to be the real “domestic terrorists.” That’s why they chose the very words that describe themselves — to distract, deflect and cover their tracks.

Just look at the results of Obama’s policies (all voted into place by Reid).

More Americans are now on food stamps than the total number of women working in America.

The number of full-time working Americans in the private sector is about 70 percent lower than the number of Americans who get government checks: 86 million versus about 148 million.

Aren’t these statistics the definition of “domestic terrorism?” How did this happen? This Administration put in place more regulations than any Administration in history. Last year alone, Obama set the all-time record with 26,417 pages of new Federal regulations.

Obama now owns four of the five highest-regulation years in the history of the Presidency.

Then there’s the dollar cost of those regulations. In just one year (2012), Obama’s new regulations cost more than all the regulations of Bill Clinton’s and George W. Bush’s entire first terms combined.

How about the cost for Obamacare regulations alone? American Action Forum reports that Obamacare imposes 645 million hours of paperwork, 4,116 Federal forms and $35.3 billion in costs.

Is there any wonder the economy is a disaster? Is there any wonder why there are no jobs? Obama has placed more handcuffs on the job creators and more roadblocks in front of small business than any President in history.

Isn’t this the definition of domestic terrorism? But wait. As infomercial pitchmen often say, there’s more! It was just revealed that Obama proposed 442 new taxes in his first five years. Yes I said 442.

Forget what this Administration actually passed. Thank goodness Obama had a Republican Congress standing in his way. But can you imagine if Obama had gotten what he wanted? We’d have 442 new taxes. Tax rates would surely be in the 80 percent to 90 percent range. That’s as high as any socialist or communist economy in the world. France is run by a Socialist Party President, and its highest tax rate is 75 percent.

Then there’s Obama Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA is trying desperately to regulate coal producers out of business. The EPA also just announced sweeping new clean water regulations that put the government in control of virtually every piece of land in the United States that has a ditch or pothole on it. If it’s an indentation and collects water, then your land is under EPA control — not yours.

Isn’t that the definition of domestic terrorism? Then there’s the government intimidation. The Internal Revenue Service scandal grows bigger by the day. Now it turns out that IRS officials like Lois Lerner were openly consulting with Department of Justice officials about how to target Obama’s political opposition. 

This same IRS is tracking our license plates on highways across America. This same IRS has requested the donor lists of the conservative Hollywood organization “Friends of Abe” and now the Ron Paul organization “Campaign for Liberty.”

Why would the government want confidential donor lists? There’s only one possible reason: to conduct a witch hunt to intimidate, bankrupt and destroy their political opposition.

Isn’t that the very definition of domestic terrorism? Yes, Reid is right. We do indeed have domestic terrorists in America. But it’s certainly not Tea Party conservatives.

By definition, it’s the group that wants a different kind of America, that wants to undo what the Founding Fathers created, that wants to violate the Constitution and kill capitalism. That’s the very definition of domestic terrorism. That group resides in the White House. It controls the U.S. Senate. It runs the Democratic Party.

Now you understand why Obama, Reid and their Marxist cabal call others by nasty names. This is the Alinsky playbook.

What Is Senator Harry Reid’s Involvement In Government Assault On Nevada Ranch?

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I live in Las Vegas. I live and breathe Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

I am, of course, referring to the Bundy ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the Bureau of Land Management. The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch, including snipers with assault rifles, SUVs, helicopters, airplanes and more than 200 heavily armed troops. No matter whether you come down on the side of the government or the ranch family, I think all of us can agree this was excessive force.

But forget all that. I believe the more important question is: Why is this case so important to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and what was his involvement in this controversial assault?

Let’s start with Harry Reid’s obsession with the case. Just on Monday evening he weighed in again, promising, “This isn’t over.”

Doesn’t it strike anyone as strange that the U.S. Senate Majority Leader is so obsessed with a small rancher who hasn’t paid grazing fees? Does New York Senator Chuck Schumer get involved publicly when a New York company is late paying rent to the U.S. government?

Doesn’t the Senate Majority Leader have anything more important to think about? There are almost 100 million working-age Americans no longer working. More Americans are today on entitlements than working in the private sector. More Americans are on food stamps than the number of women working in America. Iran is building a nuclear bomb. Russian jet fighters are threatening American ships. Yet Reid obsesses about a rancher late on his rent? Something smells fishy, folks.

There are other questions raised about Reid’s involvement. Why did this assault become the No. 1 priority of government only days after a senior political adviser to Reid took over BLM? Coincidence?

Government appeared completely uninterested in backing down for days on end… and completely unconcerned with instigating a deadly confrontation like Waco or Ruby Ridge. Then suddenly, Reid’s involvement was brought up by conservative websites across the Internet. Instantly, out of the blue — within hours of Reid’s name being attached to the raid — the BLM decided to back down, pack up and walk away. Don’t you think that this timing was a tad too coincidental?

It has been pointed out by journalists intent on covering for Reid that a $5 billion Chinese solar project backed by Reid was recently shelved. But what they forgot to mention is Reid’s involvement in multiple solar and wind projects across the Nevada desert. Only days ago, Reid was featured in a photo at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new solar project. Where is that project located? Thirty-five miles from the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nev.

Reid’s fingers are in virtually every solar and wind project in the Nevada desert. Green energy is his obsession. Green energy is his baby. His vision is turning the Nevada desert into the “Green Energy Capital of America.”

Who benefits from that vision? Democratic donors who run green energy companies. Who stands in the way of that vision? Nevada’s ranchers, farmers and property owners — almost all of whom are diehard Tea Party conservatives and patriots, who despise Reid.

Reid and the BLM needed a “cover story” to take the land away from the ranchers. So they claim it’s about protecting the “endangered” desert tortoise.

But if the protection of the desert tortoise was so important to the BLM, why did the same BLM kill hundreds of desert tortoises last fall?

If protecting the tortoises was so important, why has the BLM constantly waived rules protecting the desert tortoise for multiple solar and wind projects? If cattle are a danger to tortoises, why are solar panels and wind turbines not a danger?

There’s much more to this story, folks. My educated guess is that someone in the government already has big plans lined up for the Bundy ranch. Someone is going to make a financial killing with this forceful land grab. Someone powerful in government wants the Bundy family off their land (after 140 years).

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. It was Reid who famously made a guess about Mitt Romney’s taxes. He guessed wrong. No one seemed to mind. So now it’s time for all of us to ask questions about Harry Reid’s involvement in this scandal and government land grab. It’s time for the media to investigate.

I’m only guessing, but something smells very rotten in Nevada.

Hillary Clinton Is Radioactive


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

Hillary Clinton just lost $6 billion of your taxpayer money. Six billion dollars! That’s billion with a “B.” Six billion dollars is “unaccounted for” under her management at the State Department. More on that later.

First, let’s look at the polls. Clinton is not only the front-runner for President. It isn’t even close. Democrats think she’s a lock to be their nominee. I’m about to prove she isn’t a savior. She is radioactive.

This is the branding opportunity of a lifetime for the GOP. Clinton isn’t formidable or unbeatable. If the GOP had even a clue about branding, they’d understand that Clinton is a gift from heaven!

This is such a great opportunity for the GOP because Clinton is the “A Team.” There is no “B Team.” There is no bench. It’s Clinton or bust for the Democratic Party in 2016. She has a 61-point lead: the biggest lead in Democratic Presidential poll history.

Destroy Clinton now, and it’s over. What are the Democrats left with? “Crazy Joe” Biden? Elizabeth “I swear I’m an American Indian” Warren? Take Clinton down now, before she gets started; and the GOP is in the driver’s seat for 2016.

I travel the world lecturing about branding. I recently returned from a 16-day, four-city tour of South Africa, where I taught “Branding, American Style.” I’ve sold many millions of dollars of different products on TV, radio, infomercials and the Web. I understand branding.

Branding works. Ask Mitt Romney about that. “Team Obama” poisoned Romney’s brand early in 2012. He never recovered.

But, hey, that’s OK. All is fair in love, war and politics. That’s what branding is for. So what is the GOP waiting for? Clinton (just like Romney) is a big, fat sitting duck. Clinton is a Republican brander expert’s dream.

The Democrats are facing a landslide defeat in 2014 because of Obamacare. If Clinton is defeated now, the Democrats will be out of luck in 2016, too.

What do they brand Clinton with? Karl Rove is right. 

You don’t brand her with Monica Lewinsky or old Bill Clinton scandals. That’s old news. The voters don’t care about what happened in the 90s.

But I know exactly how to brand Clinton.

Do you remember her Congressional hearings over the Benghazi, Libya, disaster? Clinton famously said, “What difference does it make?” Make her own that brand. “What difference does it make” should become Clinton’s middle name.

Run “What difference does it make” advertisements on TV and radio 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Repeat it so much that you can’t say “Hillary” without finishing the sentence with: “What difference does it make?”

Start with the report by the State Department that $6 billion of your taxpayer money is unaccounted for. Almost all of that happened on Clinton’s watch. According to the U.S. Inspector General, this situation “creates conditions conducive to fraud.” He says there were “no internal controls” — meaning no one cared what happened to $6 billion of your taxpayer money.

This is what Madison Avenue advertising executives call “pure gold.” All the GOP has to do is run TV and radio ads 24 hours a day stating that $6 billion of your taxpayer money is missing. Who was in charge? Clinton. Who was the CEO? Clinton. Where does the buck stop? Clinton. Then show Clinton’s testimony saying, “What difference does it make?”

Next, hit Clinton with a series of Benghazi-themed ads. Once again, Clinton was in charge. During the Benghazi attack, the red phone rang at 2 a.m., just like her 2008 Presidential campaign ads promised. The U.S. Embassy was under attack and Americans were about to die. Show Clinton saying, “What difference does it make?”

The branding campaign should ask: “Where was Hillary when the embassy desperately needed military rescue? Why did Hillary refuse to mount a rescue? Why did Hillary let those four brave heroes die? If those boys were her sons, would she say, ‘What difference does it make?’”

Don’t forget the cover-up. Clinton and everyone at the State Department knew it was a planned al-Qaida attack, not a “spontaneous protest.” A cover-up is a crime. Ask President Richard Nixon. The GOP ads should interview the parents of the four dead American heroes and ask them, “What difference does it make if Hillary participated in a cover-up of your son’s death?”

Then it’s time for Round 3. Clinton was in charge of America’s foreign policy when the world fell into chaos. Show scenes of the entire Mideast in flames, Tahrir Square burning in Cairo, Libya in flames, Syrian children lying dead in the streets, Venezuela’s leader laughing at us and North Korea negotiating with Dennis Rodman. That all happened with Clinton as Secretary of State. Ask voters, “What difference did Hillary make as Secretary of State?”

Then move on to Round 4: Obamacare. Millions of Americans have lost their insurance. Tens of millions have had their insurance premiums dramatically increased. The Congressional Budget Office predicts 2.3 million jobs will be lost. The middle class is being annihilated. Cancer patients are losing their health insurance, or their doctors, or the drugs that keep them alive. Ask, “What difference does it make?”

Ask Clinton where she stands on Obamacare. Does she support it? Does she want government to get even more intrusive? How intrusive? Like a proctologist with his finger up our… wallet? Let’s ask America: “What difference does it make, if government gets even more involved in healthcare under Hillary Clinton?”

Brand that all over national TV and radio now. That’s how you use branding to destroy Clinton’s campaign before it even starts. That’s how you poison Clinton’s brand.

Make Clinton run on her record of accomplishments: $6 billion missing on her watch; four dead American heroes; a criminal cover-up; the world in crisis, chaos and flames while she was in charge of foreign policy; the miserable failure of Obamacare, a mild version of the government takeover she proposed in the 1990s; and the U.S. economy in severe decline under the leadership of an Administration she endorsed and supported.

“What difference does it make?” Clinton will soon find out. So will the Democratic Party. Clinton isn’t their savior; she is radioactive.

Are Democrats In A Political Party Or An Organized Crime Gang?

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Don’t look now, but we are experiencing a Democrat crime spree. Who would have believed it? Forget the GOP; Democrats are scared to death of RICO (the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act).

Democrat politicians are falling like flies. They are being arrested all over this country. You’d almost think the Democratic Party was one big widespread organized crime enterprise.

Keep in mind Democrats are the ones always claiming to care about women, children, minorities and the poor. It turns out this is all a cover for “Show me the money!” While they are busy painting Republicans as “mean-spirited,” “racist,” “radical” and “extreme” for wanting to cut spending, reduce the debt and allow taxpayers to keep more of their own money, Democrats are busy being involved in bribery, fraud, theft, extortion and gun running. Al Capone and John Gotti would be proud of this scam.

Maybe their new slogan should be “The Party That Makes Crime Pay!”

The recent Democrat crime spree started with Charlotte, N.C., Mayor Patrick Cannon. He resigned after being arrested by the FBI on corruption charges in a FBI sting operation.

The FBI charged that Democrat Mayor Cannon wanted far more than to help the poor in his city. He allegedly wanted to line his own pockets by demanding bribes from developers for the right to build in his town. He was charged with theft, bribery, fraud and extortion.

Then Rhode Island Democratic House Speaker Gordon Fox abruptly resigned after an FBI raid on his State House office.

This should come as no surprise to Rhode Island citizens. Right next door in Massachusetts the past three speakers of the Massachusetts House were convicted of felonies. Would it surprise you to learn they were all Democrats? They were Democrat Salvatore DiMasi, Democrat Thomas Finneran and Democrat Charles Flaherty.

In California, powerful Democratic State Senator Leland Yee was arrested alongside his partner in crime, a gangster arms dealer.

Yee was charged with wire fraud, conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms. Yee allegedly accepted $42,000 for introducing an arms buyer to an arms dealer. Investigators said Yee was helping the arms buyer obtain weapons such as shoulder-fired missiles from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines, in order to pay off campaign debts. Wow.

Keep in mind Yee was a big gun control advocate — meaning his goal was to take guns away from honest law-abiding citizens. Quite a scam: Democrat politicians disarm the citizens, leaving them helpless at the hands of heavily armed thugs who then buy their illegal weapons from the Democrat politicians. I think Democrats have been watching too many reruns of “Goodfellas.”

But Yee was only one of three Democrat Senators suspended that week from the State Senate in Sacramento.

Democrat Senator Rod Wright faces voter fraud charges. Democrat Senator Rod Calderon faces Federal charges for accepting $100,000 in bribes for passing bills.

In Philadelphia the local newspaper reported that the Pennsylvania Attorney General caught four leading Philadelphia Democrat politicians (members of the Pennsylvania House delegation) red-handed accepting bribes, but the entire investigation was shut down when a new Democrat Attorney General took office.

Democrat Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane claimed the investigation was “racist.” Funny, that’s the word Democrats always use when caught with stacks of money in their underwear as they walk out of an FBI sting.

Because all those allegedly accepting the bribes were members of the Pennsylvania Assembly’s Black Caucus, the Attorney General was able to claim “racism.” But sources familiar with the sting in Philadelphia say offers of bribes were made to both Republicans and Democrats, but only Democrats took the money.

Just a week prior, Pennsylvania Democratic State Senator LeAnna Washington was charged with corruption.

Then last week, it was disclosed that Democratic Nevada Senator Harry Reid gave $31,249 in campaign funds to his granddaughter, Ryan Elizabeth Reid, for “holiday gift expenditures.” Nice job if you can get it.

Reid claims there was nothing wrong with what he did. It’s funny, though, that the recipient of the $31,000 in “gift expenditures” was listed on his Federal Elections Commission form as “Ryan Elizabeth.” Reid conveniently left off the last name “Reid” for his granddaughter.

I have news for our U.S. Senate Majority Leader. Using campaign funds for personal use (like enriching family members) is a crime. Ask Jesse Jackson Jr. You can reach him at the Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, N.C.

Keep in mind this was just one week of a Democratic crime spree. One week of “business as usual” for the party that claims to care so much about the poor and minorities. One week for the party that claims to care about “fairness, equality and social justice.”

And in this story about Democrats and crime, I haven’t even mentioned the Internal Revenue Service scandal, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Associated Press scandal, the National Security Agency scandal or the biggest act of criminal fraud of all-time, “If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance.” Those are really serious crime emanating from the Democrat in the White House.

I have advice for the GOP in 2014 and 2016. We don’t need good candidates to defeat the Democrats.

We need good prosecutors.

Obama’s ‘Voter ID’ Scam Is Busted!

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

Folks, we are being scammed. Democrats are winning elections through what appears to be massive voter fraud.

There is a saying, “He with the gold rules.” Well, whoever wins elections has the gold. The winner has the power to change everything, so he rules. It doesn’t matter if the win was by a small margin, or if the win was by committing fraud. Winning is everything.

Many citizens may not realize most national elections are won by a sliver of votes in only a few, key battleground States. Change the vote totals by a small bit in a few States and Mitt Romney is the President: Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Iowa, Pennsylvania.

Why did Barack Obama and Democrats win by just a sliver in those few battleground States? In 2012, it was a powerful one-two punch, both of which I believe were out-and-out voter fraud.

First, Obama used the Internal Revenue Service as his personal Mafia thug enforcers to persecute, intimidate and destroy his political opposition — ranging from Tea Party groups, to conservative fundraising organizations, to top GOP donors, to high-profile outspoken critics in the media (like myself).

This widespread Obama-IRS conspiracy killed enthusiasm and intensity, dampened energy, silenced free speech and prevented fundraising through an IRS witch hunt. This changed the outcome of the 2012 election, and Obama should be impeached for it.

If you think impeachment can’t happen, study Ukraine. One day, the president is mocking protesters and sending police to kill them. The next day, he is on the run for his life, abandoning his lavish palace, impeached by Congress; and the military is hugging the citizens in the streets. It all changes quickly.

But still, I believe the IRS scandal is the smaller problem. Impeach Obama and no President will use the IRS for political purposes ever again. Problem solved.

The more widespread problem involves voter ID (or the lack of it). Without voter ID, Democratic voters across this country could be voting four times, five times, 10 times each. There is no way to prevent it, and the facts indicate that is exactly what happened.

Take Philadelphia as just one example. There were voting precincts in Philly where the combined vote was Obama over Romney by about 30,000-0. In those precincts GOP poll watchers were forcibly removed for several hours, until judges ordered them back in. During those hours, were the ballot boxes stuffed? Did Democratic voters vote 10 times each? As absurd as 30,000-0 is (it’s just statistically impossible), maybe the right vote total was 6,000-0.

If I’m wrong, why did the wolves want the chicken coup left unguarded?

Here is an example of what’s happening across the country: An Ohio woman who sat on the board of an environmental group that received an Obama Administration Environmental Protection Agency grant and attended a conference with Obama’s Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, was convicted of voter fraud because she voted for Obama six times in the 2012 election. This has barely been in the mainstream media. That’s because they don’t want you to know about it. They don’t want you to realize what it represents. They don’t want the light bulb to go off over your head — that this case represents “the tip of the iceberg.”

It’s important to note that after serving time in prison for her crime, her sentence was reduced by a George Soros-funded group’s intervention. Then, upon release from prison, she was hugged on stage by Al Sharpton at a Democratic rally.

Are you starting to get the picture? Connect the dots. Important Democrats with important careers, sitting on boards of influential organizations that receive government funding are voting six times. She’s just the one who got caught. How many more are there? Just think how many anonymous Democratic voters across this country, with nothing to lose, with no job at all, are voting six or 10 or 20 times.

Think of the importance of national Democratic figures like Sharpton publicly congratulating a criminal released from prison for voter fraud. Think of the importance of Soros-funded groups fighting on her behalf. Elections are being stolen across this country in order to advance the agenda to redistribute income and “murder the middle class.” Sharpton’s hug was a wink and a nod. Democratic insiders know this is exactly how they win elections.

How easy is it to cheat? Even left-leaning POLITICO just reported the voter registration system is in chaos. Millions of dead people are still on the voter rolls, 24 million registrations are no longer valid, 12 million have incorrect addresses and 2.75 million people are registered to vote in more than one State.

Democrats hate voter ID. It’s one of their biggest issues. But that’s ridiculous. Voter ID is a no-brainer. You need an ID to do most anything: Cash a check, buy cigarettes or alcohol, get food stamps, or get any government benefits. You even need ID to get into government buildings!

So why are Democrats so intense and passionate about such a minor issue? Methinks thou protesteth too much. This is a much bigger issue than meets the naked eye. Democrats are losing their minds over voter ID because they know they can’t win elections without fraud.

Obama and his socialist cabal are making “a mountain out of a molehill” because this is their edge. This is how they win elections when their policies are a failure, when they’ve ruined the economy, when they’ve spent the country into bankruptcy, when they’ve killed millions of jobs. Voter ID is their secret weapon. They stuff the ballot box. They cheat.

I dare Democrats to prove me wrong. But of course they can’t, because without voter ID, there is no way to prove voters are voting multiple times, in different precincts, using false names or the names of dead voters or the names of voters who have moved, or using illegal immigrants to illegally vote across this country.

But there is proof positive voter ID is a scam. The Obama-Democratic Party argument against voter ID is that:

  1. It’s racist.
  2. It’s meant to stop people from voting.
  3. It’s too big a burden for poor and minority voters to obtain ID.

I just returned from two doctor visits for a checkup and a follow-up test. These were my first doctor visits since Obamacare took effect. Guess what both medical offices asked me for before any doctor could see me or any medical test could be done?

Official government-issued photo ID.

You cannot see a doctor or receive your free Obamacare without ID to prove it’s really you. A health insurance card won’t do the trick, simply because the medical office needs to prove you are in fact the person whose name is on the insurance card.

I questioned the nurses at both offices. They verified no one can collect their “free” Obamacare services from any doctor without showing ID. And since everyone is now required to have health insurance (or is given free insurance), the government is requiring that everyone have a photo ID.

Does that make Obama and the Democrats racists? No, what it makes them is hypocrites who are in total fear of fair elections that they know they have no chance of winning — no chance, that is, unless they cheat. Don’t look now, but Obamacare just opened the door for voter ID.

This is where the younger generation screams, “Busted!”

Let’s take the hypocrisy a step further. Every single Democratic voter must be lining up to get his photo ID so he can get his free Obamacare. So the argument that poor and minority Democrat voters don’t have ID, or shouldn’t be “burdened” to get it, is out the window.

I think this is where the younger generation screams, “Double busted.”

That leaves only one possible reason to oppose photo ID for voters: the ability to cheat! 

The whole voter ID scam is dead in the water — just like the Obama economy. The argument against voter ID is killed — just like jobs in this Obama economy. And anyone who tries to argue “most voters don’t have ID” is a liar — just like the President who said, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.”

Obama, you are busted.

Obama At Columbia Story Explains Arrogant Attitude

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

I told you so.

Thirty years ago, Barack Obama, my Columbia University Class of ’83 classmate, was rarely seen. Thirty years later, he can’t be bothered to attend national security meetings about a crisis that could lead to World War III.

Some things never change.

You might ask, “What do Obama’s college days have to do with his Presidency today?” The answer is everything.

By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior is usually fairly well set. That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tell us so much about his behavior as President today.

What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing. I never met him. As I’ve reported countless times, I was a political science major and pre-law at Columbia from 1979-1983. Even though I thought I knew everyone in the political science department, neither I nor any of my friends at Columbia ever met or saw Obama there.

At the 30th class reunion last May, I tracked down legendary Columbia history professor and Presidential historian Henry Graff. For 46 years, all the American political leaders who attended Columbia were in Professor Graff’s classes. Not Obama. Graff never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.

The problem is Obama defenders and the media (I know, they’re the same) interpreted what I said wrongly. I never said Obama didn’t attend Columbia. I said he was never in class. I said while it was strange only one or two students, one professor and one foreign exchange student (who was his roommate off campus) claim to have ever seen him at Columbia, they prove he most probably attended the university. I’m sure he wouldn’t be the first college student to rarely, if ever, attend classes. I said he was like “the ghost of Columbia.”

What it means is simple. Obama is exactly the same today as he was as a student at Columbia thirty years ago: arrogant and egotistical. He’s either too lazy, or he thinks he’s too smart, to have to actually do the work expected of him. Nothing has changed in 30 years.

I’m sure he was rarely ever in class at Columbia because he had more important things to do. Besides, he already knew everything. Obama has always believed Obama is brilliant and better than the rest of us. What more could Columbia teach him?

It’s the same today. He rarely attends important meetings. In the past two weeks, he’s skipped two national security meetings focused on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a crisis that could lead to World War III. Yet our President chose not to attend.

Do you think this is conservative propaganda or exaggeration? Hardly. Obama’s absence from both national security meetings was reported by many media, including Reuters.

Why did Obama skip the first meeting? He chose to attend a White House Film Festival. Just like during his days at Columbia University, Obama had more important things to do.

Even if Obama isn’t impressed by Russia’s invading Ukraine, certainly he finds America’s jobs crisis important, right? Wrong. Obama could find no time to meet about the sky-high unemployment in America either. Even leftist Huffington Post reported in July 2012 that Obama had not convened a meeting of his jobs council in six months.

POLITICO updated the report in January 2013: Obama never bothered to convene one meeting of his own jobs council in a full year, even with unemployment and underemployment at crisis levels.

Even more remarkable, within two weeks of that story, Obama closed down his jobs council — with 12 million Americans still counted officially as unemployed.

With more than 92 million working-age Americans not working, and men suffering the lowest workforce participation rate since record-keeping began, Obama thought it unimportant to even continue having a jobs council.

So what was important in Obama’s life? Golf and fundraisers. PolitiFact.com, the nonpartisan fact checker, confirmed our President golfed 10 times and attended 106 fundraisers during just the original six-month period when he could find no time, or interest, to attend even one meeting of his own jobs council. Can you imagine the updated numbers for the full year?

And where was he the night of the Benghazi attack? Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified Obama was absent that night.

Four brave Americans died while Obama was “absent.” What could be more important than a U.S. consulate under attack with American lives at stake? What could be so important that Obama never checked in to ask a question or discuss a rescue attempt from 5:30 p.m. Eastern time until the next morning (when everyone was dead)?

Just like his college days, Obama believes he’s too gifted to do the actual work of President. He’s just too busy to have to worry about unemployed Americans. He’s just too important to have to bother to check in every night. Those are all things only “the little people” have to do.

History will show that George W. Bush, the man the leftist media painted as “arrogant, elitist and out of touch,” played 29 rounds of golf as President, until quitting in August of 2003 out of respect for the troops in harm’s way.

Meanwhile, Obama, “the man of the people,” has played 163 rounds of golf and counting, while America is at war, while Russia threatens World War III, while the economy is in shambles, while millions of people have given up hope of ever working again, while record numbers of Americans are living in poverty, while black unemployment is double that of white and while food stamps, welfare, disability and all entitlements soar to record levels.

Nothing has changed since Columbia University — not Obama’s personality, not his attitude, not his behavior.

We have a President who thinks of himself as too smart, too gifted, too important and too busy to give a damn about his job, or the economy, or the American people — either that or he does care. And he’s not in our corner. I’ll let you decide.

White Voters Abandon Obama In Droves

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Have you seen Barack Obama’s poll numbers? They are among the lowest in history. As of last week, Obama’s approval rating is at 38 percent. That’s just barely above Richard Nixon. But that’s not the big story here.

Keep in mind that Obama has the support of about 35 percent to 40 percent of the population that will never abandon him — no matter what he does, no matter how bad the jobs numbers look, no matter how low the economy goes, no matter how much scandal and corruption are exposed, no matter how strong the facts are against him. Nothing will ever change their minds. These are the “low-information voters” of the Democratic Party.

In many cases, they love Obama because of the color of his skin — and nothing else. They will never abandon a black President — even though black unemployment is at record levels; even though black youth unemployment is at record levels; even though black poverty is at record levels; even though Obama’s exact policies have been in place for more than 50 years in Detroit (a majority black city run by black Democrat politicians) and the black population has been devastated, destroyed and discarded, left for dead in an abandoned, bankrupt city with very few streetlights operating and the police leaving residents in many areas to fend for themselves.

So just think about those poll numbers for a moment. Let those numbers sink in. If 35 percent to 40 percent of the population would support a Democrat for President if he ran from a prison cell, if 35 percent to 40 percent would support Obama no matter what he does, no matter how far America sinks under his leadership (even if they have no jobs and their own lives are in total misery), how could Obama’s approval rating be at only 38 percent?

That means that among the rest of America, outside of loyal, lifelong, Kool-Aid-drinking Democrats, Obama’s ratings are nil. Among voters who don’t identify as Democrat, he is the lowest-rated President in history. No numbers like this have ever been recorded, if you filter out the Kool-Aid-drinking low-information and partisan voters.

Obama’s approval among the heartland of America (middle-class Americans) is lower than Nixon’s, lower than George W. Bush’s, lower than Lyndon Johnson’s at the height of the Vietnam War, lower than Jimmy Carter’s at the height of the Iranian hostage crisis with the added burden of an economy in misery and malaise.

I’m betting that outside of lifelong Democrats and welfare recipients (I know; I repeat myself), Obama’s ratings are in the unimaginable range of single digits.

I’m betting that outside of food stamp recipients, Obama’s ratings are in the single digits.

Among the white middle class, I’m betting Obama’s ratings are in the single digits… or lower.

Keep in mind many of the white middle class originally voted for Obama. He could not have been elected without white support.

Among those who actually own small businesses, pay most of the taxes and create most of the jobs, I’m betting Obama’s ratings are in the vicinity of zero.

Actually, if you take the white middle class and subtract out a few Ivy League intellectuals, Hollywood liberals and pathetic Upper West Side of Manhattan Democratic zombies, there are few Obama supporters left to be found anywhere in America.

Remember that about 47 percent of Americans get entitlement checks from government. Obama is paying for their support and he still has only 38 percent approval. You know you’re unpopular when even bribes don’t work anymore!

This man has managed to pull off something remarkable and historical: He has alienated almost every single American who actually works for a living and pays taxes, outside of Chicago, Manhattan, Hollywood and Detroit. He has virtually zero support among the 53 percent who aren’t getting a check from government. You can’t find another instance of that in the history of American politics.

Obama is amazing!

Now… one last bit of housekeeping. I do want to answer my critics whose only response will be: “All of these white voters who don’t support Obama are racists. It’s all about race.”

First of all, the very definition of racism is voting for a black candidate because… he’s black. That’s racism. The fact that 92 percent of black voters voted for Obama and 96 percent of black women voted for Obama is nothing but voting based on race.

As far as white voters abandoning Obama in droves, I’ve yet to meet one white voter who bases it on the color of Obama’s skin. We all base it on the color of his policies. The color of his policies is red — as in communist red. We hate his policies, not the man and not the color of his skin.

We hate the record-setting $12 trillion in debt he’ll have piled up by the time his second term is finished, because Obama has ruined the future of America with that debt. And he’s ruined our children’s future quality of life with that debt. We hate Obama’s big tax increases for the middle class and small business, and the fact that those tax increases haven’t helped the economy or created new jobs because the money was handed to Obama’s voters and donors — for more entitlements, more welfare, more food stamps, bailouts, stimulus and wasted failing green energy “investments.”

We hate the fact that Obama has killed millions of jobs. We hate the fact that the economy is in ruins under his leadership, except for Wall Street. Of course, Wall Street goes up because Obama has directed the Fed to print trillions in fake dollars to make his biggest donors richer than they ever imagined.

We hate the fact that Obama ruined the finest healthcare system in the world, which about 80 percent of Americans were happy with in the first place. We hate the fact that he is a liar and fraud who promised “if you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” Now we either don’t have insurance, or our prices have been raised through the roof. He has damaged our lives beyond belief. The color of his skin has nothing to do with it. But the facts have everything to do with it.

Over the years, I hated the policies of George McGovern and Jimmy Carter. They were both white. So did that mean I hated whites? Today, I hate the policies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Does that mean I hate Italians and Mormons? I hate the policies of Hillary Clinton. Does that mean I hate women? I hate the policies of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz and Senator Chuck Schumer. Does that mean I hate Jews? Well guess what? I’m Jewish. There goes that argument.

And I hate the policies of Joe Biden. Does that mean I hate idiots? I’m just kidding… kind of.

The point is in every case, it’s the politics and policies that we hate — not the person or the race. So the argument is just plain misleading, fraudulent and stupid.

It all comes down to common sense. White, middle-class Americans are suffering because of the policies of an incompetent, fraudulent, lying Marxist. And we’re not in delusion and denial, simply because we’re not blinded by the color of his skin. The fact is we don’t care about the color of his skin. So we can see the plain truth.

That’s why Obama’s poll numbers are amazing. That’s why among Americans who are not Kool-Aid drinkers blinded by the color of his skin, Obama’s poll numbers are the lowest in history.

I Have The Smoking Gun In The IRS Scandal

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner finally agreed to testify in front of Congress. (Lerner invoked her 5th amendment right and refused to testify.) Still, the media and Republicans in Congress are missing the larger picture. They keep thinking this scandal involves the nameless, faceless Tea Party groups that have been demonized by President Barack Obama and his allies. That’s why Congress needs to expand this investigation.

The real scandal is that this was a widespread criminal conspiracy by the Obama White House to use the IRS to target, persecute, intimidate and silence Obama’s critics and political opposition.

And I believe I personally have the smoking gun to tie the Obama White House to this scandal.

Congress needs to ask Lerner and other IRS officials about the targeting of individual critics of Obama — good Americans with names and faces and families — whom they tried to destroy and intimidate… people like me. That story will resonate with the American people.

That’s why Obama doesn’t want that story in the news. He wants this to be about only Tea Party groups that are so unpopular. But this “IRS targets the Tea Party” story is a distraction from a much bigger and more dangerous scandal. The real scandal will lead to the impeachment of Obama.

The second of Richard Nixon’s Articles of Impeachment was for the crime of using the IRS to punish his political opponents. Don’t look now, but we’ve got another Nixon in the White House. The difference is that Obama’s IRS scandal makes Nixon look like a minor league rookie.

Tea Party groups are just one part of this widespread conspiracy. I was personally targeted along with many others, including Dr. Benjamin Carson; former GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell; a stage 4 terminal cancer victim (after appearing on FOX News); conservative filmmakers like Jerry Mullen (Dinesh D’Souza’s partner) and Joel Gilbert; Christian ministers like Billy Graham; Catherine Engelbrecht, who was targeted more than 15 times by the IRS and other government agencies after founding her Tea Party group; and numerous prominent GOP donors. The list goes on and on.

There is a clear pattern of a criminal conspiracy here. This was an organized crime conspiracy that would make Al Capone and the Gambino crime family proud. The only question is: Can Obama be connected? If he can, this becomes the biggest scandal in modern U.S. political history.

Let me tell you about my personal situation. I spent three years (2011-2013) under nonstop attack by the IRS. I first wrote about it last spring.

I may not be the most high-profile Obama critic in the country, but my opinions are read by millions at many of the most popular news, business and political websites in the country, like Personal Liberty. Last year, my book The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide became a national bestseller.

The result of all of this nonstop media exposure? An unprecedented IRS attack starting in January 2011. This IRS attack was so overzealous and out of bounds, I was forced to hire one of the Nation’s top tax law firms. My legal team took the case to tax court, where we won a complete victory. Five days later, the IRS announced a new tax audit. I’m not a billionaire or a wheeling, dealing hedge fund CEO. I’m just a small businessman, but someone in the Obama Administration thought I needed to be silenced.

Multiple legal and tax experts confirmed they had never heard of an American taxpayer being attacked by the IRS in such a manner only five days after winning in tax court. Furthermore, they all agreed this could happen only if I was on Obama’s “enemies list.”

The attack was chilling, intimidating and very expensive. It was meant to bleed me dry and teach me a lesson: If you dare to criticize Obama, get ready to lose everything.

Here is where my case may differ from others. Obama and the IRS left a trail. I may have the smoking gun to connect Obama to the scandal.

Smoking Gun No. 1

Unlike any other IRS targets, I was Obama’s classmate at Columbia University. And I never hesitated to express my theories about Obama’s scandals at Columbia. My commentaries and theories were widely covered by conservative media like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Bill Cunningham and even Geraldo Rivera.

I’ll leave it for you to decide, but is it possible that my criticisms of the President hit too close to home. And as his college classmate appeared all over the media hitting him hard, he noticed. I got under his skin. And Obama or his top aides (see Valerie Jarrett or David Axelrod) ordered the IRS to make my life miserable. I think it’s not only possible, I think it’s probable.

Don’t forget; this Obama socialist cabal plays by Chicago rules of dirty assignation politics. Also never forget they sent the IRS to attack a stage 4 terminal cancer patient who appeared once on FOX News to criticize the President. I made thousands of appearances in the media, including dozens per year at FOX News.

Regardless of how you feel about my criticisms of the President, even if you hate me and even if you think all of my opinions are wrong, a President can’t order the IRS to target a citizen for his political beliefs. If either Obama or his top aides gave the orders, a crime was committed. Nixon’s Articles of Impeachment make that clear.

Note from the Editor: Under the Obama Administration, the NSA, the IRS, and the State and Justice departments are blatantly stepping on Americans’ privacy—and these are just the breaches we’re aware of. I’ve arranged for readers to get a free copy of The Ultimate Privacy Guide so you can be protected from any form of surveillance by anyone—government, corporate or criminal. Click here for your free copy.

Smoking Gun No. 2

As my second IRS attack was winding down and I was winning once again, the IRS auditor handling my case in California received a very unusual phone call. On the other end of the call was one of the most important IRS officials in the country. He called to demand the IRS auditor wrap up my case immediately.

Why was one of the top officials in the IRS interested in closing my case? Why would a top IRS official intervene in an “unimportant” local audit? How would a top IRS official even know about my case? What would make him take an interest? If he never saw the details of my case, why would he be interested in closing it as quickly as possible?

I consulted several tax experts again. They all concluded that top IRS officials never intervene in local cases unless a call is made by someone at the very top of the food chain — either the White House or a U.S. Senator.

Interestingly, this happened two weeks before the IRS scandal broke all over the national news.

Did whoever was giving the IRS its marching orders panic and decide to bury my case before the national media started snooping around? Did someone in the White House make that call?

Smoking Gun No. 3

Since then, Judicial Watch, the leading government watchdog organization in the country, jumped on board my case. Judicial Watch agreed my case looked suspiciously like a classic case of IRS persecution and intimidation ordered by highest levels of government. It partnered with me to find out the truth, including whether the IRS trail leads directly to the Obama White House.

Judicial Watch requested all files, records, correspondence, phone calls, etc. relating to my case on Aug. 7, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

By law, the IRS had 30 days to comply. That was well more than half a year ago. It’s been more than half a year of silence.

The IRS is refusing to cooperate with the law of the United States of America.

Why would the IRS risk breaking the law rather than releasing my files? Something smells rotten in D.C.

It’s not difficult to find out where this trail leads. Ask any prosecutor what comes next. Squeeze the people at the bottom to give up the names at the top. Put them in front of Congress and under oath and ask: “Who gave the orders and why?” Then, move up the chain of command. I’m betting this case leads to the White House.

Oh, and be sure to ask IRS officials what about my case is so important that they’d be willing to break the law by refusing to respond to our Freedom of Information Act request.

After all that, I don’t place the blame on the IRS. Obama has used them as scapegoats. He threw the IRS under the bus. He blamed “rogue agents” out of the Cincinnati, Ohio, office. He’s lying through his teeth. My case involved the Las Vegas office of the IRS.

And there are no “rogue agents.” Most government employees are good people. Career bureaucrats would never risk their pensions to harass or persecute taxpayers without orders from above.

The IRS employees who handled my appeals in California and at U.S. Tax Court were honest, fair and professional. I have nothing but good things to say about them.

The other IRS agents who tried to destroy me were undoubtedly ordered to do so. I’m sure they felt that their careers were at risk if they didn’t follow orders from the top levels of government.

The buck stops with the Obama White House. It had all the power and the motive. That’s where the criminal act occurred. I believe the Obama White House directed this widespread witch hunt — not just of me, but of hundreds of other critics of the President and major GOP donors.

Then, when it got caught in a criminal conspiracy, it tried to distract the media with the Tea Party story… and blame the little guys at the IRS. Suddenly, lower-level employees just following orders were “rogue agents.” How low can you go? The IRS was used by Obama and then thrown under the bus. These agents are victims, too, of an out-of-control tyrant as President.

Watergate proved even the President isn’t above the law. This IRS scandal may yet prove Obama isn’t too big to jail.

Are 9 Dead Bankers A Sign Of Pending Economic Collapse?

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

Something very big and very bad is happening. Prominent bankers are dying in droves. Have you ever heard of eight bankers committing suicide in a matter of just a few weeks?

A ninth banker was found dead only days ago. What is driving successful bankers with families to kill themselves in droves?

Here’s the tip-off that this is a very big story: The mainstream media are not covering it. There are nine dead bankers (and counting), and the story isn’t even mentioned in the national news. That itself is a major news story.

Bankers are dying so fast, you’d think they were all dentists. You get the joke, right? Dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession. Sometimes, you need a little humor to brighten up a very dark story. But keep in mind, at no time in history have nine dentists all died under mysterious circumstances in a matter of a few weeks.

Why are so many bankers dying? Are the media asleep at the switch? Afraid to dig deeper? Ordered not to investigate? By whom? The government? Or are the media perhaps afraid for their own lives if they dig deeper? You think that sounds a bit absurd? Well not really. A Wall Street Journal reporter named David Bird, who covers the commodities market, is missing. As in gone. As in never seen again. He left his home on Jan. 11 and never returned. Was he working on this story?

Something smells rotten in Denmark, because nine dead bankers and a missing reporter should be a huge headline story.

And if anyone has been watching closely, five other major bankers died in either suicides or mysterious circumstances in 2013. That’s 14 dead bankers.

Someone is going to win a major journalist prize for investigating a high-profile story like this. But for some mysterious reason, no one in the mainstream media seems interested. Doesn’t that alone make you nervous?

This story is real. The dead bankers are:

  • William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG.
  • Karl Slym, 51-year-old Tata Motors managing director.
  • Gabriel Magee, 39-year-old JPMorgan banker.
  • Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a U.S. investment bank.
  • Richard Talley, the 57-year-old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colo.
  • Tim Dickenson, U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG.
  • Ryan Henry Crane, 37-year-old executive at JPMorgan.
  • Li Junjie, 33-year-old Hong Kong banker.
  • James Stewart Jr., former CEO of the National Bank of Commerce.

James Stewart? You know something very bad is going on when a bank CEO named Jimmy Stewart is found dead. I guess it’s not such “a wonderful life” after all.

How they died is strange and mysterious, too. Two of these successful bankers jumped off the roofs of their high-rise office buildings. Just like that, bankers decide to take a stroll off the top of their office buildings? One of the bankers was ruled a “suicide” after being shot eight times from head to toe with a nail gun.

Am I the only one who finds this creepy and worrisome? Do you know anyone brave or insane enough to commit suicide by nail gun?

So what’s going on? I’ll give you two theories.

My first educated guess is we are headed for an epic economic collapse. The mainstream media has fed the public lies about a non-existent “recovery” and dutifully reported the government’s manipulated economic reports (filled with fraud). But these bankers are smart guys who know the truth. What’s coming is very, very bad. As I argued in my national bestseller, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, we are entering the greatest depression of all time.

What caused this economic collapse? Spending, entitlements and debt. Who caused it? Government, led by corrupt, ignorant and reckless politicians. If I were the lead detective on this case, I’d be investigating who had the most to gain from a cover-up. My investigation would start and end with government collusion, corruption, bailouts and bribery.

Governments all over the world have taxed, spent and printed us into oblivion. America’s debt crisis will make Greece look like a walk in the park. This is too big to paper over. When the U.S. economy collapses, the entire rest of the world crumbles with us. Even creative and corrupt government bureaucrats making up fraudulent economic statistics can’t cover this one up. There is no way out from the coming crash. I’m guessing that knowledge might cause a banker who sees the writing on the wall to take a walk off the roof of his high-rise.

But that still doesn’t explain shooting yourself with a nail gun eight times from head to toe. No one wants to die that slowly and painfully. That sounds more like torture to me. And torture is what leads to murder. Perhaps some or all of these bankers were murdered. Perhaps they didn’t walk off their high-rise buildings. Perhaps they were pushed.

Perhaps the Colorado bank CEO was being “questioned” when the nail gun went off… eight times. I guess the interrogators didn’t like his answers.

But why would someone murder bankers? My educated guess is these are smart guys who knew too much. Perhaps they knew about government manipulation and fraud. Perhaps they knew their banks were not in the wonderful shape their manipulated balance sheets showed. Perhaps they had information about government collusion and corruption in the banking system. Perhaps they were threatening to expose government’s lies and fraud. Perhaps they knew about the trillions of dollars in derivatives held by banks and Wall Street firms about to implode and collapse the world economy with it.

I’m just making educated guesses. But something is very wrong. Something bad is coming. Nine dead bankers is a very messy start of a very big story the mainstream media don’t want you to know about.

Is Obama Accelerating The Collapse Of America?

Hi, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. In my latest book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, released in spring 2013, I called Barack Obama a “stealth Marxist” out to destroy capitalism and make Americans dependent on government. This wasn’t just guesswork. Obama and I were classmates at Columbia University, where we were taught how to overwhelm the system until the economy collapses with spending, debt and entitlements. In my book, I called Obamacare the perfect “Trojan Horse” that would make it all happen.

Have you paid attention to the Obama news of the past week? It’s amazing. It’s mind-boggling. It’s unimaginable. It was a week of unimaginable destruction.

The cloak is off. Obama is no longer hiding his plans to destroy America. For anyone who isn’t blind, deaf or very dumb, it’s now all out in the open.

The news of this past week proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Obama is accelerating the destruction of America. Why the sudden rush? Obama and his Marxist cabal see the writing on the wall. Their internal polls show they are headed for a landslide defeat in November. Now that the disastrous effects of Obamacare are clear for the voters to see, they know Democrats are about to be destroyed at the polls.

Knowing Democrats can no longer get elected, or re-elected, Obama has decided to go it alone. Without regard for the law, the Constitution or the American people, he and those pulling his strings behind the scenes have obviously decided to do the most damage possible to America during his final three years. He’s finally taken off the mask and shown himself to be the true communist tyrant he is.

Look At The Facts

This week the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office finally reported the truth: Obamacare is the perfect job-killing machine. Millions of people have already been downsized from full-time to part-time work, and now we know from the CBO that an additional 2.3 million jobs will be eliminated. As I predicted from Day One, this is exactly what Obamacare was intended to do: destroy the middle class and make us all dependent on government checks to survive.

Obama’s Kool-Aid-drinking supporters are so far in the tank that when the CBO courageously pointed out that Obamacare makes it less likely millions of Americans will want to work, they called it “choice.” Obama’s propagandists painted it a wonderful development. But letting middle-class wage earners and small businesses pay for all those who want to be freed from the need to work, so they can enjoy their free time and pursue their hobbies isn’t “choice.” It’s theft.

Folks, it is time to stop treading lightly and being politically correct. Let’s call it what it is. This is communism, pure and simple. Anyone who thinks the American dream is to choose to stay home, not work and collect a government check is reading directly from Karl Marx. Anyone who thinks some people (who vote 100 percent Democrat) should have a “choice” not to work, by stealing the money of others, is reading directly from The Communist Manifesto.

Personally, I think “choice” is great. You can choose to not work anytime you want. But if you need to steal my money to do it, that’s called theft, not choice. Middle-class wage-earners are being ripped off to pay for freeloaders. That means middle-class people are having their “choices” taken away from them. I guess in Obama’s playbook one man’s choice is another man’s slavery.

But that was only the start of the week. Next, Obama illegally rewrote his own Obamacare lawagain. Mimicking the traits of communist dictators and tin pot tyrants, Obama obviously believes he can change any law he wants, at any given hour, of any given day. One of the main chapters of my book was titled: “America the Banana Republic.” Just this week, Charles Krauthammer said what’s happening under Obama “is the stuff you do in a banana republic.” Welcome to the club, Charles. It’s nice to see D.C. establishment Republicans are finally seeing the light.

In America it’s a violation of the Constitution for the President to wake up on the wrong side of the bed and decide to make, arbitrarily change or break laws. This is the behavior of Fidel Castro, or the late tyrant Hugo Chavez.

But wait; it gets far worse. As part of the new illegal Obamacare directive to postpone the law for businesses with 50 to 99 employees, Obama put the Internal Revenue Service in direct control of critical U.S. business decisions. He demanded that businesses must “justify” hiring and firing decisions to the IRS to qualify for the exemption. Plain and simple, putting government in charge of the decisions of a private business is the very foundation of communism. It is how communist economies like North Korea, Cuba, the old Soviet Union and East Germany have always been run.

Still, Obama wasn’t done. To show his total distain for Congress and the American people, he unilaterally loosened the rules for citizenship to allow foreigners with only a “minor” connection to terrorism to become citizens. Dennis Miller once said on “Monday Night Football,” “There is no such thing as a minor groin injury.” Well there is no such thing as a “minor” terrorist either.

Why is our President desperate to open the borders and let in “minor” terrorists? It’s not like we have a surplus of jobs. What is the pressing need in a country with 92 million unemployed working-age Americans? Has corporate America put out an emergency request for “minor” terrorist employees? Or is this how Obama creates instant Democratic voters?

Much along the same lines, Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder announced this week how “unjust” it is to not allow felons to vote.

No, Mr. Attorney General, the only thing “unjust” was the crimes these felons committed. What’s the emergency here? Is there a shortage of Democratic voters? Obama’s game plan is clearly to combine felons with radical Muslim terrorists in order to guarantee Democrat dominance for years to come.

This was just one week in America. The evil and terrible news is coming in waves. And it’s all coming from one man — a man no longer hiding the fact that he is a tyrant, dictator, communist and hater of America, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values.

Obama no longer cares to hide his radical Marxist ideology. It’s now clear it’s “pedal to the metal” toward the destruction of America.

The question is: Who will stop him?

Obama And The Debt Ceiling Are Both Full Of Crap

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The debt ceiling debate is upon us again. And once again you are being fed a line of crap. Barack Obama is full of crap. The media are full of crap. Congress is full of crap. John Boehner and the establishment GOP are full of crap. And the debt ceiling itself is one big load of crap. It’s all a big lie. Let me explain in simple terms anyone can understand.

Have you ever had a sewage pipe break? If the raw sewage kept pouring out and piling up to your ceiling, would you hire contractors to raise your ceiling or would you ask them to correct the problem: to fix the broken pipe and clean the piles of crap out of your home?

Raising the ceiling of your home would be incredibly stupid; it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. It would change the entire construction of your home. Most importantly, it wouldn’t solve your problem. If you raised the ceiling but didn’t fix the broken pipe, you’d spend $100,000 on the higher ceiling. But two weeks later, they’d have to raise it again. They would have to raise it again and again, until you’d spent more than $1 million on ceiling raises on a $100,000 home that is still full of crap.

Right now, I’m sad to say, America is full of crap.

The Republican chief coward, House Speaker John Boehner, just gave in to Obama again (as he always does) and got nothing in return (as he always does). It’s as if this debate is actually a choreographed acting performance. The loser is America. You’ve been fed a load of crap.

They’re all lying to you, trying to distract you from the truth. The issue isn’t the debt ceiling. That’s only the result. The actual problem is out-of-control government spending. In only five years, Obama has added $6.6 trillion to the national debt. Debt is like sewage. It is bad stuff. It carries disease. It stinks. It’s a cancer or a curse upon whoever touches it.

Here’s what this so-called debt ceiling fight is about. Government has a sewage leak. Raising the ceiling is a big mistake, because no one is fixing the problem. The problem is stopping the raw sewage before it spreads fatal disease and causes a catastrophic epidemic that brings about an economic collapse. Debt has already destroyed the so-called PIIGS of Europe: countries like Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal. They are drowning in debt. By raising our debt ceiling, we are making the exact same mistake, heading in the exact same direction. We are Greece, except much bigger. Debt will destroy us too, but our collapse will take the entire world down with us. The debt ceiling is a ticking time bomb. Each time we raise the debt ceiling, we are closer to the implosion.

Raising the ceiling again proves that Obama is a failure. It proves that Obama is reckless and irresponsible. It proves that Obama is spending us into bankruptcy. It proves that Obama is once again (what a surprise) a liar. He claims to have cut spending. But the fact we are at the debt ceiling again proves we raised spending. It proves that even the infamous “sequester,” which Obama claimed cut too much spending, actually never cut enough. If we actually cut any substantial spending, why would we need to raise the debt ceiling? Obama and the media don’t want you to ask that question. They need to distract you.

No one cut spending. If anyone had actually cut spending, then why are we out of money again? The politicians called a cut in the increase in spending “a cut in spending.” But it’s not actually a cut in anything. It’s just more spending.

Or in this analogy of a house with a broken sewer pipe, it’s just more sewage. What if your plumber allowed 50 percent more sewage to pour out of the pipe into your house, but he told you that’s better than 100 percent more sewage? What if he bragged that he’d slowed the sewage leak into your house? Would that work? Or would your home still be destroyed by sewage — just a little slower. Would you want to sleep in a bedroom covered in 2 feet of raw sewage, instead of 4 feet? Would you sleep soundly? Of course not, because that didn’t solve the problem.

That’s what is happening to America. We are overloaded with crap. And our ceiling is going to soon explode and take the economy — and your job — with it. The very act of raising the debt ceiling means you’re spending and printing too much money. You’re in debt. And in a matter of months, you’ll need to raise the roof again.

The politicians tell us about all the threats to our country if we don’t raise the ceiling. But the reality is the ultimate national security threat is out-of-control debt. Raising the ceiling doesn’t solve the problem; it allows the problem to get worse. It encourages more spending. It delays the inevitable: a massive debt crisis that causes the collapse of America.

Obama, his socialist cabal, big-government proponents and the media (I know I repeat myself) all have a vested interest in lying to you. They desperately need the reckless spending to continue to bribe their voters. That’s how they stay in office, by perpetuating a massive Ponzi scheme. They desperately need more fake money printing to keep the Ponzi scheme going. They desperately need to distract you from seeing the truth: that government spending is the problem, and the way to solve the problem isn’t raising the ceiling; it’s fixing the pipe.

How do we fix the pipe? We slow the spending. We cut government. We actually — get ready for this — must spend less than we take in. No one in the hysterical media has ever mentioned this simple, alternative solution.

Raising the ceiling is one way to go; fixing the pipe is the other. Which one would you go with in your own home?

Yes, folks, the debt ceiling is a pile of crap. And so is the entire Obama agenda. And if we don’t act fast, so is the American dream.

The Tea Party Is The GOP’s ‘12th Man’

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. This past Sunday, my Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl in one of the most lopsided beatings in sports history. And few people saw it coming. More than 70 percent of the $10 billion bet on the Super Bowl in Las Vegas and across the United States was bet on Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos. But I knew better.

Perhaps many of my Personal Liberty readers don’t realize that my career began as a Las Vegas oddsmaker and sports handicapper. It was so successful I was dubbed by the media “the King of Vegas” and was awarded my own 180-pound granite star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. This was all before my political career began. Football was my life back then.

Today, my career centers around politics. But I still have a thriving sports prediction business with thousands of clients who pay for my advice. I gave them my strongest possible “buy” on the Seattle Seahawks to win the Super Bowl. Seattle’s Super Bowl victory was one of the great wins of my career. How did I know? There is a fantastic lesson here for the GOP.

Politics has much in common with sports. In both politics and sports, winning is everything. And in both these endeavors, winning is about energy and enthusiasm. There are 32 teams in the NFL. The difference between winning and losing is razor-thin. How did one team — the Seattle Seahawks — rise above the battlefield and dominate this season? The Seahawks are a model for the valuable and unique role of energy and enthusiasm in providing a winning edge.

Seattle gets its energy and enthusiasm from “the 12th man,” their crazed fans. There are 11 men on a football field at any one time (for each team). The 12th man is an invisible energy force produced by the fans that gives a team energy, inspiration and momentum. It is a well-known fact in sports: Fan intensity creates momentum. It changes the outcome of games.

Seattle has the loudest, proudest, craziest fans in all of sports. They are so loud they caused an earthquake (literally). They’re in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the loudest fans. The Seahawks are the only NFL team to fly a 12th-man flag to represent and acknowledge the importance of their fans. Boeing has even created a 12th-man 747 airplane. Seattle celebrates and embraces its most loyal fans. The Seahawks understand that without the energy of their crazed fans, they’d be just another NFL team. That 12th man is the razor-thin edge Seattle needed to win the Super Bowl and become one of the great teams in NFL history.

Who is the GOP’s 12th man? Well, it sure isn’t the green jacket-wearing, country club Republicans. Or the “moderate,” wishy-washy, stand-for-nothing Northeast Republicans. Or the cowardly Republicans who want to apologize to Obama every time he walks in the room.

To paraphrase the famous line from the days of Bill Clinton: It’s the Tea Party, stupid. The GOP’s energy, enthusiasm and courage are found in the true-blue, patriotic, conservative base called the Tea Party. The GOP’s 12th man has the same qualities as the Seattle Seahawks fans: a faith in victory, a belief in the right principles, a love for party and country, a passion for the fight to save America, an intensity and energy found nowhere else. The Tea Party is the razor-thin edge of the Republican Party.

Like the NFL, winning is very difficult in American politics. We are living in a Nation sharply divided. Every election is fought and contested in a few key districts and battleground States. Elections are won based on intensity, energy and turnout.

Like Seattle’s 12th man, the Tea Party led the GOP to an earthquake (figuratively). In 2010, the GOP shocked the experts by winning a historic, record-setting landslide. It was due to the incredible energy and intensity of the Tea Party.

But this is where the story changes. The GOP needs to learn a lesson from the Seahawks. Seattle embraces their most loyal and intense fan base, whereas the GOP establishment does not.

The biased, leftist mainstream media have painted the Tea Party as “extreme,” “radical,” “crazy” and even “terrorists.” This was a purposeful plan right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook. They needed to slander, denigrate and destroy the Tea Party, before the Tea Party destroyed President Barack Obama’s agenda.

But Obama and the Democrats weren’t alone in this goal to destroy the GOP’s 12th man. Big business was central to the plan, too. Big business loves big government and the crony capitalism that comes with it. Big business loves corporate welfare and thousands of new regulations. They have the armies of lawyers, lobbyists and accountants to deal with them. But it puts small business (their competitor) out of business. So big business, big GOP donors, lobbyists, lawyers and the Chamber of Commerce all got into bed together with Obama and the mainstream media to try to slander and ruin the Tea Party.

Now, the GOP establishment is running away from its own base. It wants its most loyal supporters to go away. Leaders like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Karl Rove and Chris Christie hate the Tea Party. But there’s a problem: The GOP can’t win elections without its 12th man. Without the Tea Party’s energy, passion, enthusiasm and intensity, the GOP is just another losing political party. The Tea Party is the GOP’s winning edge.

The GOP needs to learn a lesson from the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. The GOP must celebrate and embrace its loyal base of fans.

Love your 12th man. Feed off our intensity. Only our energy, enthusiasm and passion will lead you to victory. We are the GOP’s pounding heart… on steroids.

Without us, you’re just another losing party.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless America and the only group capable of saving her, the Tea Party.

Obama’s State Of The Union: Lies And Theft

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. My, how the mighty have fallen. I was going to report on all the lies in Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech. But it appears he’s more than a pathetic liar; he’s actually a thief, too. Obama started out his career at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany with thousands watching. Now, he plagiarizes George W. Bush’s speeches? That’s a pretty long fall.

Large swaths of this speech appear to have been lifted directly from Bush’s 2007 State of the Union. So says Bush’s speechwriter — and he should know his own words.

Now from plagiarism, we move to the original lies of Obama. The question is: Does he believe this stuff? Obama actually reported the U.S. economy is in “recovery.” Bernie Madoff has nothing on this guy. In Obama’s economy the food stamp rolls are growing 75 times faster than the job rolls!

Obama said there are 8 million new jobs. Maybe he’s counting people who have stopped looking for work forever, as “getting a job.”

I have news for you, Mr. President: They didn’t get a job. They went on disability, food stamps or welfare… probably all three. There are almost 100 million working-age Americans not working. That’s almost exactly how many Americans are on entitlements. Coincidence?

Obama said the unemployment is the lowest in five years. Another whopper. The fact is the number of working-age Americans without a job has increased by almost 10 million in Obama’s first five years as President. That means each and every year of Obama’s Presidency, 2 million more Americans just disappear from the workforce. That’s a neat trick. I’m sure David Copperfield is impressed.

Obama says every business owner should give a big raise to our employees. With what? The economy is in freefall. Business is dramatically down for every business owner I know. We can’t make payroll. We can no longer afford health insurance. Inflation is running rampant. Our gas bills have doubled. Electricity is at all-time highs.

Because of you, Mr. President, our health insurance bills have doubled or tripled.

And he wants us to give our employees a raise? We’re lucky if we can keep the doors open.

Obama introduced some pizza parlor owner who gave his employees a raise.

I don’t know where you found him. Perhaps he’s an actor you rented for the day. But I know a pizza parlor owner, too. His four sons work for him. He paid $800 per month for health insurance for his family until Obamacare came along. His new bill? $2,400 per month. He’s dropping all his insurance. I guess he didn’t make the cut to be introduced at the State of the Union.

Of course, your Obamacare law helped a few people that you introduced in the audience. It wasn’t easy finding them, was it? But for each person your healthcare law has helped, thousands have been hurt or ruined. They’ve lost their policies, doctors, lifesaving drugs, or had their cost raised to unaffordable levels, or had their deductibles raised dramatically. It wouldn’t have been hard to find one of those victims. Senator Tom Coburn was sitting in the audience. He has cancer. He just lost his doctor because of Obamacare.

You said you “saved” the auto industry. Another whopper. You stole tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to save auto union pensions. It was pure theft. Anyone could “save” any industry by stealing billions of dollars from taxpayers and handing the money to your biggest campaign donors.

Obama said he is ordering Treasury to create some new savings bond IRA for working-class people. Great. Where will they get the money? Will they cash in their food stamps for the savings? Even if working class Americans did have any extra money, this is just a new scheme to steal their retirement money. Now instead of throwing your Social Security money away to a program going broke, working people can give the government even more retirement money to steal. Obama will “borrow” it to pay more food stamps and welfare bills and leave you with another worthless IOU.

Obama said that the National Security Agency is not violating the privacy of ordinary Americans. Of course not, the NSA is only violating the rights of Republicans and leading critics of the President. The rest of you can go about your business.

Obama says we support Ukrainian citizens’ fight for free speech. Unfortunately, he doesn’t support Dinesh D’Souza’s right to free speech here in America. He’s the conservative filmmaker who created the documentary “2016: Obama’s America.” He was just indicted.

In Obama’s America, critics are either persecuted, intimidated or indicted.

But perhaps the biggest lie of all was Obama’s crooning about solar power. Spain is the green energy capital of Europe. Their whole economy is based on green energy. The result is more than 27 percent unemployment and more than 56 percent youth unemployment. I can’t wait to replicate the Spanish economy!

Finally, Obama ended with a sweet tribute to an injured war vet. Obama loves and honors our vets while he purges the military of any officer who disagrees with him. And he cuts pensions for military vets so he can spend more on food stamps, disability, welfare and, of course, give a billion dollars to foreign companies to build and fix the defective Obamacare website.

But the highlight of the night was Obama’s getting a standing ovation from Democrats for promising to violate the Constitution; ignore checks and balances; and bypass the people, Congress and the law of the land to pass radical and extreme parts of his agenda by executive orders. Save that video of Democrats cheering wildly for Obama to break the law; it will make for one heck of a GOP television advertising campaign this fall. I’d be sure to show them cheering in slow motion.

This, folks, is the state of our union… and the state of delusion and deception in Obama’s America. Disgusting. Embarassing. Misleading. Criminal. And even a little plagiarism thrown in for good measure.

I guess outside of the nonstop lies and fraud, Obama just didn’t have any original material.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless America.

Obama Says We Hate Him Because He’s Black

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. No, Mr. Obama, we don’t hate you because you’re black. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has fallen badly in the national polls. His ratings are historically low: the second lowest in modern history at this point of a Presidency. Lower than George W. Bush. Lower than everyone but Richard Nixon. And just barely above Nixon. It’s only a matter of time before Obama has the lowest poll ratings in history.

Here come the excuses. Obama desperately wants us to believe it’s all because he’s black. In a lengthy interview with New Yorker Editor David Remnick the President tells him there are “some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President” (because if he didn’t have that excuse, it would have to be based on his performance).

When Obama blames “some folks” for not liking him because he’s black, he refers to conservatives and white Americans. I’m an unapologetic member of both groups. It’s an interesting excuse. If we actually did hate him for the color of his skin, that would excuse everything he’s done to damage or destroy American exceptionalism, capitalism and the U.S. economy.

If this were about race, it would excuse his dismantling of the economy. It would excuse the 92 million working-age Americans not in the workforce. It would excuse all-time record lows for workforce participation. It would excuse tens of thousands — and in some cases, hundreds of thousands — of Americans dropping out of the workforce every month. It would excuse the fact that only crummy, crappy, low-wage, part-time jobs are being created because of Obama’s policies.

If this were about race, it would excuse Obama’s taking the formerly greatest healthcare system in the world and plunging it into crisis and confusion. It would distract us from seeing his failed Obamacare website that cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Or his blatant lies about keeping our health insurance if we like it. Or his lies about the middle class not being taxed to pay for 30 million new patients.

Or his lies about the quality of care remaining the same, even though we’ve added 30 million new patients, with no new doctors. Or his lies about prices going down, while our rates are going through the roof, and while his own Internal Revenue Service predicts health insurance will cost the average family a staggering $20,000 per year by 2016.

If this were about race, it would excuse his lies about wanting to create jobs for middle-class Americans while he’s made conscious decisions to hire foreign companies (who rely on cheap foreign labor) to build and fix the defective Obamacare website.

If this were about race, it would excuse his never ending spending and debt. Or the damage he’s done to middle-class Americans: the doubling of gas prices; the all-time record highs for electricity; the jobs he’s destroyed by not approving oil drilling, or fracking, or the Keystone Pipeline. Or using the Environmental Protection Agency to try to put the coal industry completely out of business.

It would excuse his using the power of the IRS to persecute Tea Party groups and conservative critics (like me), while allowing the IRS to hand out fraudulent tax refunds to illegal immigrants claiming fake dependents not even living in the United States.

It would excuse four dead American heroes in Benghazi, Libya; a refusal to send help while they were fighting for their lives; and a blatant cover-up before the election.

But putting all that aside, let me point out a few inconsistencies in Obama’s allegation against conservatives and white Americans:

  • First, I don’t despise Obama. I despise his beliefs and his policies.
  • Second, last I checked, Obama is not just “black.” He’s half white, born to a white mother, raised by white grandparents.
  • Third, I’ve been consistent my entire life. I’ve been a true-blue conservative patriot since age 3, when I handed out campaign literature for Barry Goldwater in my father’s arms. I judge people by their political beliefs and policies, not the color of their skin.

At the age of 11, I despised the policies of ultra-leftist Presidential candidate George McGovern. His beliefs and policies were almost identical to Obama’s today. Did I hate white Midwestern men?

In 1980, as a student at Columbia University, I despised the policies of President Jimmy Carter, whose policies were almost identical to Obama’s today. Did I hate white Southern men?

Today, I despise the policies of ultra-leftist politicians like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Do I, therefore, hate white Mormons and Italians?

Lastly, I can think of many Jewish Democrats whose policies I despise. The first one that comes to mind is Debbie Wasserman Shultz, whose statements often make me physically ill. Does that mean I hate Jews? That’s pretty funny, because I’m Jewish.

In each case a Republican conservative like me despises the political beliefs and policies of people I believe now, or believed back then, to be extreme, radical, socialist, economically ignorant and damaging to America and capitalism.

No, Mr. Obama, we don’t despise you because you’re black. But we do despise your policies, your lies and your destruction of the greatest country, economy and middle class in world history.

Oh, and just to set the record straight: I don’t believe Obama really thinks this is about race. That’s just what he says publicly to incite more anger, bitterness, division and class warfare, which is exactly what his mentor Saul Alinsky taught him: “The ends justify the means.”

Obama knows he’s unpopular because he is carrying out a purposeful plan to wreck the economy. He just needs to cry racism to distract the masses, so they don’t notice what is happening right in front of their eyes. It’s a philosophy he learned at Columbia University called “boil the frog slowly.”

How do I know? We were classmates. I learned the same philosophy. Just set the temperature low enough that the frog doesn’t even know he’s being boiled to death… until he’s dead. Don’t look now, but the American people are the frog. This is precisely how you destroy America from within.

The Chris Christie Scandal: Fat And Furious

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has gotten himself in a pickle. All scandals deserve high-profile names. Let’s call this one Fat and Furious.

Integrity is everything in life. I have been a leading critic of President Barack Obama here at Personal Liberty. I think he’s a criminal. I think any politician — no matter what party he belongs to — who uses government to hurt, damage, bully, intimidate or destroy a political opponent should be fired and forced to resign or go to prison. These are crimes we cannot tolerate in a free society.

So Chris Christie is the biggest loser.

But Obama’s Fast and Furious is far worse than Christie’s Fat and Furious. Obama sold arms to Mexican drug lords that wound up killing a U.S. border agent. That is far worse than causing a traffic jam. It is criminal.

Obama’s using the Internal Revenue Service to destroy political opponents (like me) — and to change the outcome of a Presidential election — is far worse than causing a traffic jam. It is the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. political history.

Obama’s using the National Security Agency to spy on every American — and members of the media — and perhaps to use that information to blackmail political opponents is far worse than causing a traffic jam. It is criminal.

Obama’s covering up an arms deal with radical Muslim rebels that backfired and killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, is far worse than causing a traffic jam. It is criminal.

Obama’s telling lies and committing fraud when he said, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep your insurance,” when Obamacare caused millions of Americans to lose their health insurance, is far worse than causing a traffic jam. It is perhaps the biggest fraud in world history. It’s certainly criminal.

Now it is reported that the Drug Enforcement Administration was involved in drug dealing from 2000 to 2012. That’s with the approval of both George W. Bush and Obama. That’s far worse than a traffic jam. Why aren’t the media holding them accountable for government-certified drug dealing by Mexican drug lords?

Yes, Obama should pay for his crimes against the American people. Because no one, including the President, is too big to jail.

But conservatives need to be consistent. We need to put ethics above party. We need to be willing to shout loudly when one of our own does something wrong. We need to be better than the hypocritical liberal media that covers up for Obama.

Christie, like Obama, is a bully. He uses the force of government to try to intimidate and damage his political opponents. He uses government to scare people into silence. He uses government for political retribution.

Oh, and let’s not forget that he’s also the jerk who double-crossed Mitt Romney, sold his buddy out and helped to re-elect Obama. As I’ve said in hundreds of media interviews since the Presidential election, “The GOP can never again trust Chris Christie. Christie stabbed Mitt Romney in the back. Once a traitor, always a traitor. He cannot be our Presidential nominee.”

I was right. The true Christie was just exposed. He’s not much different than Obama. If you cross him, or anger him, or criticize him, he’ll try to destroy your life. And he doesn’t care who gets in the way (even thousands of New Jersey voters stuck in hours of traffic, half of whom might have been Republican supporters). Fat and Furious is a small scandal, but it represents a much bigger picture.

Let’s Look At The Chris Christie Story

I’m a Tea Party libertarian-conservative Republican. Mitt Romney was not my cup of tea. (Excuse the pun.) But once I choose sides, I’m “all in.” There is no 90 percent or even 100 percent. Either you give everything you have, or don’t get involved. So I gave Romney 110 percent.

I knew the re-election of Obama would devastate the economy and kill more jobs. I knew the implementation of Obamacare would annihilate the middle class. I knew Romney was the only alternative. So I was “all in.” I gave Romney everything I had. His loss was devastating to me.

But not for Christie. He sold Romney out for ego, media spotlight and his own political future. As soon as Christie saw the opportunity to advance his own future Presidential prospects, he dumped Romney like yesterday’s news. He didn’t just stab Romney in the back and kiss Obama’s ring. He went a step further: He French-kissed Obama at the New Jersey airport.

You never betray your friends like that. Never. There would have been nothing wrong with shaking Obama’s hand at the airport and announcing: “I don’t support your policies, and I’m still supporting Romney. But when there is a natural disaster, we all come together as Americans.” That would have been fine.

But Christie became best friends forever (BFFs) with Obama that day. Christie’s over-the-top lovefest damaged Romney’s Presidential ambitions. At the time, several national polls had Romney up by 5 to 7 points. His ratings sunk like quicksand after Christie’s symbolic embrace. It’s bad enough to kiss your opponent’s ring, but Christie French-kissed Obama. Yuck. And he never again mentioned Romney’s name or his support of Romney. Do hurricanes cause amnesia? With friends like Christie, who needs enemies?

What did Christie get out of it? Was it pure ego, to prove his bipartisan credentials and win adulation from the liberal media? Yes, I think that was part of it.

Did Obama bribe Christie? Was he promised billions of dollars in government loans and Federal Emergency Management Agency hurricane-relief money if he stabbed Romney in the back? Yes, I think that was part of it.

Was it pure political payback for not being chosen as Romney’s Vice President? Yes, I think that was part of it.

Or was it pure political calculation? Did Christie realize if his buddy Romney won the election, he (Christie) would have no political future. Romney would be in for eight long years, and Christie would have nowhere to move up — and he would be long forgotten after his second term as Governor was up. My guess is all of the above.

Don’t forget this is a guy who Romney chose as the keynote speaker at the GOP convention. Christie rewarded his faith by giving an entire speech about himself. Listening to Christie’s speech that night, I wasn’t sure if it was Romney or Christie accepting the nomination.

This same Christie went out of his way to denigrate and bad-mouth the Tea Party. You know, the same group that is the very foundation of the GOP. The same group that makes up the most loyal base of support, donations, energy and excitement for the GOP. The same group that produced the greatest landslide in modern political history in 2010. Why? Once again, ego. Christie needed to flex his muscles, prove his independence and win adulation from the liberal media.

This same Christie went out of his way to denigrate Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. He not only picked a fight and called them bad names, but then he refused to kiss and make up.

Christie has kissed Obama’s ring 24/7 since the election, but he wouldn’t make peace with two Tea Party heroes of the GOP. Interesting way to gain the GOP Presidential nomination.

This same Christie badmouthed Libertarians. Not a word about liberals. He said nothing about the Marxist cabal in the White House destroying our economy. But he went out of his way to bad-mouth freedom-loving Libertarians.

You’d think Obama would love Christie. Yet first chance he got, Obama stuck the knife into Christie. First, Attorney General Eric Holder announced he was investigating whether this traffic jam scandal was criminal. Then, he announced the Justice Department is investigating Christie’s possible misuse of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. Amazing! Poor Christie. All that ring kissing, butt kissing and French kissing… and Obama still wants to ruin him.

What Are The Lessons From Fat And Furious?

First, what goes around comes around. Karma’s a b***h. Christie got what was coming to him.

Second, if the customer is always right in business, that’s doubly true in politics. Who is the GOP’s base (i.e., best customer)? The Tea Party. Any Republican who bad-mouths the Tea Party is a moron. You can disagree, but do it nicely. Show respect. If you don’t, expect to be shown the door. You just committed political suicide.

Third, stop trying to make friends with the media. The media hate all Republicans, even the “moderate” ones. When a Republican courts the media, he dances with the devil. You may think they like you. You may think you’ve charmed them. But in the end, the media will aim to destroy you for the “crime” of being a Republican.

Christie just found out what happens when the media think you’re the one guy who can beat Hillary Clinton. They turn on you like a pack of wolves.

Fourth, never trust big-government Republicans like Christie. They use the same power of government to damage people’s lives, just as Democrats like Obama do.

Fifth, never allow politicians of any party to bully or intimidate taxpayers. Whether they are ordering IRS audits or ordering traffic jams, they deserve impeachment and prison terms. They answer to voters — not the other way around. They are our servants; we aren’t their serfs.

Sixth, if you’re a Republican and you make nice with Obama (the Marxist destroying our country), you are making a pact with the devil. And the first chance he gets, he’ll double-cross you. Deals mean nothing to the devil.

As a football player, I learned a valuable lesson. I was taught that as a wide receiver, you’re going to get hit — whether you catch the ball or drop it. So you might as well catch it. The hit hurts much less after you made an important catch for your team. When it comes to Obama, he’s going to try to destroy you either way. You might as well try to destroy him, too. Because playing nice doesn’t help. He is a radical Marxist. He hates patriots. He hates Republicans. He hates businessmen. You cannot win him over. He drinks the Marxist Kool-Aid. He will never be your friend.

Lastly, stop making excuses for Republicans who believe in big government. Taxes went up under Christie. Spending went up under Christie. The size of government went up under Christie. Do you ever get the message that this is why America is so screwed up, that this is why we face economic disaster? If Republicans are no better than Democrats, who needs them?

Funny enough, I actually feel bad for Christie. His scandal was just a traffic jam, for gosh sakes. Fat and Furious is a small scandal compared to the crimes of Obama. But it’s symbolic of everything that ails America and the GOP. Christie is the biggest loser. Pun intended.

Moderate Establishment Republicans Are Killing The GOP… And America

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I’m very clear on what’s killing America. First, it’s Barack Obama and his socialist cabal. Even worse than socialist, most of them are Marxist. Second, it’s the lying politicians of both parties. They lie to cover up their true agenda, and they lie to cover up their incompetence. Third, it’s the lying media, up to their necks in a cover-up to support Obama and his destruction of the middle class and small business. Lastly, it’s the moderate GOP establishment in Washington, D.C. They are fraternizing with the enemy. They don’t care about us. They’re all good buddies in D.C. (BFFs, “best friends forever”), in bed together with a common cause: getting re-elected, guaranteeing their own golden parachute and setting their kids up for life, all at the expense of the rest of us.

Lies are killing America. Everyone in D.C. lies to trick us, distract us and confuse us. Pretty soon, no one even knows what the truth is anymore. The biggest lie comes from Obama, moderate Republicans and the media elite, who are all in bed together, trying to convince us that only “moderation, cooperation and compromise” can save the GOP… and America. This is one of the greatest lies ever told.

First of all, moderation won’t save the GOP. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is the GOP has had a long list of moderate “saviors”:

  • Gerald Ford: loser
  • Bob Dole: loser
  • George H.W. Bush: loser (to Bill Clinton)
  • John McCain: loser
  • Mitt Romney: loser

So much for “moderation” winning elections for the GOP. The reality is the Republican Party has elected only one true conservative as President. Ever. His name was Ronald Reagan. I was there when my liberal friends at Columbia University called Reagan “loony,” “nutty,” “extreme,” “radical, right-wing nutcase” and “out of touch with average Americans.” Well, that “radical, right-wing nutcase” won in two massive Presidential landslides. And how about the results? This one true conservative President brought America back from the brink of total economic collapse, decline, malaise and misery. Reagan turned the worst economy since 1929 into the greatest economic expansion in world history. Reagan created 20 million jobs in just a few years. Then the 20 uninterrupted years of economic expansion that Reagan started created 40 million jobs and trillions in wealth. The mainstream media is desperate to make us forget all that.

You know what else the media doesn’t want us to remember? That Reagan wanted massive cuts to spending, but in the end he listened to the media and “compromised.” He agreed to increase spending to get his tax cuts that saved the U.S. economy. Now, Democrats and the media use that “compromise” to destroy Reagan’s legacy by claiming “Reagan raised spending and built huge deficits.” Well then, I guess “compromise” is bad for Republicans, isn’t it?

You know what else the media don’t want us to remember? Reagan cut income taxes from 70 percent to 28 percent, but then once again he listened to the media and “compromised.” He allowed a few small tax increases in order to get Democrats to agree to future spending cuts. Now, the media accuses Reagan of “raising taxes multiple times.” And, of course, the Democrats lied and never cut any of the spending they agreed to. So I guess “compromise” is bad for Republicans, isn’t it?

You know what else the media don’t want us to remember? That George H.W. Bush compromised on his promise: “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Once again, in order to get Democrats to rein in spending, Bush compromised. Once again, Democrats lied and cheated. No spending was cut, but Bush got the blame for raising taxes. So I guess “compromise” is bad for Republicans, isn’t it?

And when George W. Bush “compromised” by letting spending grow unchecked and never vetoing a single spending bill, we got an economic crisis, the banking system almost collapsed, the debt plunged us into a depression and Obama was elected. Gee, “compromise” really works out well for Republicans, doesn’t it?

But wait, there’s more proof that this idea of “moderation” is a stone-cold failure. The GOP ran nothing but “moderates” for Congress throughout the 50s, 60s, 70s and even the 80s. The result was a permanent Democratic majority in Congress from 1954 through 1994. Moderation resulted in 40 years of unchallenged domination for Democrats.

The facts are in: When Republicans compromise their principles, allow bigger spending, agree to tax increases, support bigger government, and become nothing more than “Democrat-lite,” they lose.

Then, of course, there’s the most powerful proof of all: the 2010 election. Led by the energy and passion of the Tea Party, Republicans achieved the most smashing victory in political history. They not only won Congress in the biggest landslide since 1938 — and took a majority of Governorships — but also won the most State Legislature seats since 1928. The media seems to have overlooked or forgotten about this, even though it happened only three short years ago.

After that record-setting Tea Party victory — with polls showing the Tea Party more popular (by far) than the actual Republican Party itself — politicians of both parties in D.C. panicked. They couldn’t allow the country to be dominated by this idea of smaller government. Everyone in D.C. gets rich off big government. They couldn’t afford to let the gravy train slow down.

So Obama and his socialist cabal, with an assist from big-government RINO Republicans, set about to destroy the Tea Party. The plan was to slander them, distract them, intimidate them and destroy them. It took a coordinated criminal conspiracy (some might call it “racketeering” or organized crime) by Obama, Democrats, big-government politicians of both parties, the mainstream media and, most importantly, the Internal Revenue Service.

Democrats called conservative patriots “terrorists,” “arsonists,” “radical,” “extreme” and worse. The media quoted them all day and night, 24/7. And the IRS set out to intimidate, harass and persecute Tea Party groups and conservative critics of the President, until their energy was killed, their passion erased, their views silenced and their fundraising starved.

Suddenly, with true conservatives distracted, persecuted and on the defensive — and with a wonderful “moderate” like Mitt Romney at the top of the ticket — it was back to mediocrity and the loser’s club for the GOP.

This is what Democrats and the media (I know, I repeat myself) want to convince us to go back to. Could it be that the media desperately want to convince us that a “moderate” will save the GOP, simply because they know a “moderate” will guarantee a Democratic Party victory?

But moderation, cooperation and “compromise” don’t just lead to GOP mediocrity and defeat. They also lead to ruination for the United States of America. The proof is in the pudding. We’ve had decades of cooperation and compromise on Capitol Hill. The result? Seventeen trillion dollars in debt. And when you add in unfunded liabilities, well over $115 trillion in debt. All that cooperation and “business as usual” has produced a bankrupt Nation; the death of full-time, good-paying jobs; and the extinction of the middle class. Moderation, cooperation and compromise have killed the greatest Nation and economic juggernaut in world history.

If all that hasn’t convinced you, how about some eye-opening facts provided by the Congressional Effect Fund. In the past half-century (since 1964), when Congress was in session, the U.S. stock market has been up 1 percent. During that same period, when Congress was on vacation, the stock market was up 17 percent.

So tell me what the benefit is of moderation and cooperation? The reality is no matter who is sitting in those seats on Capitol Hill, politicians are doing damage to our economy each time they compromise and agree to pass a bill.

Still not convinced? How about over a 100-year timeline (again courtesy of the Congressional Effect Fund). If you had invested $1 in the stock market starting in 1899, only when the Congress was in session, today you’d have $2. If you had invested the same $1 only when Congress was on vacation, today you’d have $300.

More proof that moderation, cooperation and compromise are greatly overrated. We don’t need a moderate GOP to save the Republican Party or America. History actually proves that compromise leads to deficit, debt and economic decline.

The solution? We need to throw all the bums out. Every single one of them. Clean house. Then start over with Tea Party conservatives, with the same limited government principles as our Founding Fathers. They should be “citizen politicians” willing to make government smaller, make themselves less powerful and restore power to the people. They should all agree that government feels our pain only because government causes it. Government can’t run the post office without losing $16 billion per year — and that’s with no competition (by law). Government runs Amtrak; it’s lost $40 billion and counting — and still we lose more than $30 every time a butt sits down on an Amtrak train. Government runs the $16 trillion war on poverty that wasted and lost $16 trillion. Government runs our failing public schools. From now on, if a politician thinks “government knows best” or “government has the answer,” he must be defeated, no matter what party he represents.

Oh, and one other thing: From this day forward, we must term-limit the politicians. Limit them all to two terms: one term in office and one term in prison. I call it “the Chicago Rule.”

The Bullying, Lying, Spying Tyrant In The White House

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Happy New Year 2014. Unfortunately, happy days aren’t here again. I can’t lie to you. I can’t make something up to pacify you during a national holiday. My New Year’s gift to you is the truth. You’ve got to hear it if you want to save America, save your job or business, save your civil rights and freedoms, and save your children’s or grandchildren’s future.

The truth is shocking and disturbing. The truth is we have a tyrant in the White House. His level of bullying, lying, spying, distorting, manipulating, intimidating, demonizing and using propaganda to cram his policies down our throats is unlike any President in history. His name is Barack Obama. But it might as well be some Marxist thug like Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez or the old leaders of East Germany. The result is something none of us ever imagined: America living in decline, crisis and fear.

An even better analogy is to compare Obama to Chicago’s own Al Capone. We have an organized crime gangster living in the White House who believes the ends justify the means. He’s playing the meanest, dirtiest game that has ever been played in D.C. Let me explain the tricks of the gangster’s trade and how we are being played.

First, Obama uses his army of government employees to fix elections by intimidating critics and destroying his political opposition. The Tea Parties won the 2010 elections in a historic landslide. So just like the dictator/gangster Obama is, he used the Internal Revenue Service to attack, persecute and bankrupt them. He sucked out their life, energy and enthusiasm. The result: Amid the worst economy since the Great Depression, Obama won the election with his army of government employees doing the dirty work.

And just to be sure, Obama’s loyal government employee goons in the Census Bureau created fraudulent data about jobs in the weeks leading up to Election Day. Like all organized crime, the books were cooked. And I believe the fraud continues unabated every month. The jobs reports are either outright crooked, just made up out of thin air or certainly manipulated to make it look like we have a jobs recovery. We don’t.

That’s how gangsters and tin pot dictators stay in power: through an army of brutal enforcers doing whatever it takes to keep the boss in power. We don’t have a President, we have a capo di tutti.

Don’t forget Obama also used the IRS to silence free speech by attacking critics (like me) and hundreds of others who dared criticize him. Obama even stooped so low as to persecute a Stage 4 terminal cancer victim who criticized Obamacare. Only a few days after appearing on FOX News, this cancer victim at death’s door was audited by the IRS. Coincidence? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

But that’s all child’s play. The serious dictator/gangster wants to know your deepest, darkest secrets so he can extort and blackmail you. Obama uses the IRS to uncover his opponent’s business and tax dealings. He uses the National Security Agency to listen to all our calls, emails and texts. He uses Obamacare to snoop into your medical and sexual history. Or didn’t you know Obamacare demands that your doctor ask about your sexual history? That information is now in the hands of government (aka Big Brother). Obama understands whoever has the most information is in control.

Everyone has secrets they don’t want publicly exposed, at the risk of losing your career, reputation or — worst of all — your wife and family. I believe Obama and his goons are using this information to extort and blackmail his GOP opposition.

If you don’t believe this is happening, you are naïve. This is the very point of all the three-letter government organizations: IRS, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), NSA. Obama uses them as his personal army, police force and Mafia hit men.

How else can you explain John Boehner calling Obama bad names and swearing to support small government, lower taxes, less spending and reducing the debt, and then turning around days later and agreeing to a deal to increase spending and raise taxes and the debt?

How else can you explain a true-blue conservative patriot like Justice John Roberts standing in full throttle opposition to Obamacare, writing the majority Supreme Court opinion against it, striking it down, killing it, and then suddenly reversing course to join the other side and write a new majority opinion supporting and approving Obamacare?

How else can you explain Gen. David “We Never Leave Anyone Behind” Petraeus, then head of the CIA, standing silently by while his CIA operatives were murdered and left behind in Benghazi? Obama refused to send help, yet Petraeus never said a word. Why? Was he being blackmailed over an affair? Now we know he was, in fact, having an affair. But at the time, no one knew – except, of course, the government agents listening to his calls and spying on his emails. Did they use that information to blackmail him, and then hang him out to dry after the fact? Perhaps the affair was the smallest thing they had on Petraeus. Perhaps there’s much more that we’ll never know.

But everyone has secrets. Everyone does something wrong. Big Brother now knows them. And I believe they are using them to extort our politicians and military leaders.

Obama obviously has ways to control people. It takes more than wonderful speeches on teleprompter to make conservatives suddenly go against all their principals. My belief is that Obama and his Chicago hit squad has “the goods” on the opposition. They find your weakness, then hold it over your head like a sword. They’ve uncovered transgressions, corruption, insider trading, tax cheating or photos of the political opposition in bed with the wrong person. They might even offer a deal too good to refuse: Vote our way, and we’ll give you a $1 million-per-year lobbying job or law-firm partnership. Vote against us and we’ll leak your embarrassing secrets and ruin your life. There is no other common-sense explanation.

What about Obama’s executive orders, ignoring Congress and the Constitution to carry out his big government plans: to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, to use the EPA to destroy the coal industry, to stop oil drilling cold in its tracks? The list is long. Just like dictators and Mafia gangsters who couldn’t care less what laws say.

Or Obama’s henchman in the Senate, Harry Reid, dispensing with a century of tradition to allow Obama’s appointees to be approved by a simple 51-vote majority: a so-called “nuclear option.” Why? To put appointees in places of importance with such radical Marxist backgrounds they could never be approved without rigging the system.

Then there’s the military purge, about which few American’s know. Obama has fired more commanding generals in the past year, along with hundreds of junior officers on track to become generals, than any President in history. It’s a scene right out of “The Godfather,” when Al Pacino kills every opponent standing in the way of his power.

This is not a happy commentary for New Year’s. But this is the commentary America needs to hear. This is my “tough love” New Year’s gift to America. A wake-up call. A gift that just might save your life.

Wake up, America. Because by next New Year (2015), it may all be gone: our country, capitalism, Judeo-Christian values, American exceptionalism and our children’s future.

All wiped away by one man: a lying, spying, bullying tyrant in the White House.

 

Duck Commander Ignites A Revolution

 

Hi! I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Boy, do I have a merry Christmas story for you.

A duck hunter stared down the powerful forces of Hollywood — and Hollywood blinked! And the result is… It isn’t that gays are coming out of the closet. It’s that Christians and conservatives are coming out of the closet. A duck hunter may have fired the shot that ignited a new American Revolution.

Something amazing is happening: an awakening. More people showed support for the star of “Duck Dynasty” in 24 hours than signed up for Obamacare in its first three months — which means that at this point in time, Americans are starting to come to the conclusion we’d rather have a duck hunter in the White House than Barack Obama. We couldn’t do any worse. By the way, the duck hunter may be simple, but he never committed fraud to sell us his product.

By now, everyone knows about the whole controversy involving the reality TV show “Duck Dynasty” and its biggest star, Phil Robertson. Robertson made some controversial comments about homosexuality. That didn’t sit well with Hollywood.

A&E Networks suspended Robertson indefinitely, which is another way of saying: “You’re fired.” A&E thought it was a cut-and-dried case. They thought, “Who’d take the side of some uneducated, ignorant duck hunter?”

Perhaps someone should ask the executives of A&E what is feels like to step in duck poop? Because don’t look now; but that uneducated ignorant, duck hunter just took down an entire billion-dollar TV network. It’s no joke. A&E made the biggest mistake in the history of Hollywood. It showed middle America (the people who watch their TV shows) how the thought police tyrants in Hollywood (and D.C.) really think.

And America told Hollywood to “Go duck yourself!”

Here is what has me in a celebrating mood this Christmas. The tyrants and control freaks like Obama, Hollywood, the leftist thought police and the media elite are shaking in their boots. They have visions of peasants with pitchforks and gas cans at the gates of their offices and mansions.

I really do believe this was the moment in time when Christians and conservatives woke up from a long slumber. It took a simple duck hunter to inspire us. And what Middle America is saying to Obama and his socialist cabal is: “We have rights, too. We deserve free speech, too. We’ve had enough of your oppression and intolerance toward our values and beliefs. And we’re not going to take it anymore.”

A&E is backed into a corner, with no easy way out. Cracker Barrel has already backed down. That company took “Duck Dynasty” products off the shelves and got so many angry calls and emails that all the products are back on the shelf. Cracker Barrel actually had to issue an apology. In so many words, Cracker Barrel said: “We were flat-out wrong. Our customers have spoken.” Wow! You mean Christians and conservative consumers actually do have power! Amen to that.

It’s about time we woke up and realized we have rights, too. And we have power. It’s time to not turn the other cheek. It’s time to stare right in the face of our oppressors and do unto them as they do unto us.

A&E claims the “indefinite suspension” (i.e., firing) of Robertson is about “branding.” What it’s insinuating is it couldn’t possibly allow a close-minded, Neanderthal gay basher to remain as the face of its billion-dollar brand.

Well guess what? The new brand for A&E is “the Christian-hating, Bible-bashing, intolerant TV network.” And in a Nation still dominated by Christians who actually believe in God, guns and the Bible, that’s not a viable brand. In other words: Oh, how the tables have turned. A&E is “ducked.”

Let me explain my background. I’m a lifelong Republican conservative. My heroes are Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater. I’m a leading conservative commentator and bestselling conservative author of The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide. Yet I’ve always differed from my fellow conservatives on one issue: gay rights. Like my hero Goldwater, I have no problem with gays. Goldwater is the father of the modern-day conservative movement. Yet he, too, was pro-gay rights. In so many words, he once said of gays in the military, “I don’t care if they’re straight, I only care if they shoot straight.”

Ronald Reagan was also open-minded toward gays, as a result of a lifetime spent in Hollywood in the acting business. I’ve always been pro-gay rights. I believe what people do in their private bedrooms is none of government’s business.

But this isn’t a gay rights issue. The firing of Robertson, star of “Duck Dynasty,” is a free speech issue. It’s symbolic of the biased, one-sided way the media and leftist elites treat free speech. People have every right to express opinions considered “progressive” or “politically correct” nowadays. But the same rules don’t apply to salt-of-the-earth, apple-pie, middle-class Americans who believe in God, country, guns and, yes, the Bible.

You mean Christians and conservatives don’t they have the right to free speech just like Hollywood leftists? Just like Washington, D.C. socialists? You mean Christians or conservatives don’t have the right to express their views in the workplace, without fearing for their jobs? You mean if any of us quote the Bible at work, we can lose our jobs?

Robertson only expressed his personal opinions. Those opinions are shared by millions of Christians not only in America, but across the globe. Agree or disagree, he had every right to express that opinion without losing his job. I may disagree with the exact words he chose, but I stand hand-in-hand with Robertson to support his right to say it.

Oh, by the way, Robertson is a reality TV star. His success and popularity are based on his opinions. A&E fired a reality star for having controversial opinions? Are you kidding me? A&E execs need to visit a psychiatrist’s couch… pronto!

The “Duck Dynasty” scandal is about intolerance. But the intolerance is on part of Hollywood and A&E. The star of a reality show is allowed to have opinions. If you don’t like them, you have no right to ban them. That’s intolerance. That’s tyrant behavior. That’s McCarthyism. That’s the attitude of police states we find in countries run by tyrants like Josef Stalin, or Fidel Castro, or Huge Chavez, or the old East Germany. Is this what America has become under Obama?

I don’t have to agree with Robertson to stand behind him. I support free speech. If it can happen to Robertson, it can happen to anyone of us. I’m a TV and radio personality. I have opinions. I won’t change them — or back down. If you don’t like them, change the channel. That’s called freedom.

Defenders of A&E and Hollywood claim this is about “private property rights.” They say a private business (like A&E) has the right to fire anyone hurting its brand.

That would be true if this were a fair two-way street. I, too, support private property rights for business owners (like me) to run our businesses anyway we want. Only the CEO should decide who works for his company, not government.

But this is not the way the rules currently work in America. If any private business said “I won’t serve a customer because of his race or sexual orientation,” would that decision be allowed by government? Would Hollywood or the media elite take the business owner’s side? Of course not. So “private property rights” are extended only to people with the same views as Hollywood?

If a businessman, in his own private business, decided to fire any employee who supports gay marriage, would that decision be allowed? If a CEO fired employees because they were atheist, would that decision be allowed? If a CEO fired a woman because she was an outspoken supporter of abortion, would that decision stand?

How about if a CEO concerned about his brand said, “You’re fired because your outspoken support of gay rights is killing my business” — would that decision be allowed?

More specifically, how about a TV network firing the star of a reality TV show because he made remarks in an interview supporting abortion or gay marriage or stem-cell research. Would government, courts or Hollywood accept that decision? Leftists and gay rights organizations would beg government to intervene. And we’d see $100 million class action lawsuits galore.

So it’s a lie to say that private businesses have a right to fire who they want. The law is used only to protect leftist and “progressive” views. This was never about “branding.” It was about the shock and horror when people who drink Obama-Kool-Aid realized that their biggest TV star actually believes in Christian and conservative values. And he’s popular. Gasp! This could be trouble. This kind of thinking could spread. They had to move quickly to silence him.

Why? Because Obama and his socialist cabal are petrified of free thought. They keep their modern-day Tammany Hall going through intimidation and the demonization of opposing viewpoints. They use Saul Alinsky tactics: destroying the reputation of your opponent and making a mockery of him and his views. They want to set an example. Once you see the star of “Duck Dynasty” lose his job and be vilified in the media for merely giving his opinion and quoting the Bible, you’ll never try it yourself. You’ll be put in your place, too frightened to talk out loud about your views ever again.

Leftists, socialists, communists and intellectual elitists cannot afford to allow conservative or Christian values to be affirmed by a pop culture celebrity — for fear it might start a trend. It might stir up the masses. It might encourage conservatives to speak out. It might embolden Christians to quote the Bible without fear. Hollywood cannot allow that. Because they know it could get out of hand. Americans might actually be inspired to fight back. Some of us might escape the thought-police plantation.

Well, I’ve got news for you: It’s too late. The spark is lit. You just woke a sleeping giant.

A duck hunter may have just ignited a revolution. Robertson just went from TV phenomenon to American hero. Salt-of-the-earth Middle America has been now unchained. The gloves are off. We are free to speak our minds. And the truth shall set us free. Here’s what we have to say to control-freak tyrants like Obama the Hollywood elite thought police: “Duck you!”

And now that we’re free to speak our minds…

Let’s start by throwing out that politically correct pablum “Happy Holidays.” It’s time to stop cowering in fear. It’s time to say publicly and loudly “Merry Christmas.” It’s not a generic holiday. It’s a religious holiday. It’s called Christmas because it celebrates the birth of Christ. Can you imagine that?

Open your window and scream it out loud: “Merry Christmas to all. And to anyone who doesn’t like it, we don’t give a duck what you think.”

The revolution has begun. And capitalism still works, too. A&E just made Robertson a billionaire. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. God bless America. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

John Boehner Must Go; Here’s Why

 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of the United States of America and the leader of one of America’s two major political parties. Is he the best and brightest we have to offer? Are you kidding me?

No wonder the GOP Congress loses at every turn to Barack Obama. We are led by a fool. Boehner is the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen. He fights with a white flag. Total surrender. He fights like a man preordained to lose, his every move dominated by fear and an inferiority complex. This is our “leader?”

Or is it all just a big choreographed game, like professional wrestling? Are Obama and Boehner actually on the same team, fighting for the same goal: big government? Do they only put on a show from time to time to keep everyone fooled into thinking there are really two different political parties to choose from?

Or perhaps Obama is using the National Security Agency and the Internal Revenue Service to blackmail GOP politicians? Perhaps Obama has photos of Boehner in bed with the wrong person. Because the way Boehner fights these battles is so embarrassing, I’d have more respect for him if he were being blackmailed. That would explain his pathetic strategy, loser mentality and nonstop surrenders.

But now Boehner has gone and done the unthinkable. This time he’s done something so stupid, it tops everything that came before. Boehner just picked a fight with the Tea Party. He just attacked his own political base. His best customers. His true-blue conservative army. That’s touching the third rail of politics. That’s a fatal mistake. That’s called “career suicide.” Going to war with your own base is unforgivable.

I learned from the best. My grandfather came to America in the early 1900s with nothing. Zero. Just a dream. He worked for 20 years as a butcher until he saved up enough money to open his own butcher store. That small store became a huge success for more than 40 years. My grandfather became a relatively wealthy man (for a small businessman with a tiny store) and a respected business leader in his community… and, of course, a huge fiscal conservative.

Later in life, I asked him what was the key to his remarkable success, going from penniless foreigner to self-made millionaire with only a small butcher store. He told me it was always about the customer. He said, “There are 2 rules in business, my grandson. Rule No. 1 is: The customer is always right. Rule No. 2 is: If the customer is wrong, refer back to Rule No. 1.”

That’s it. Always protect your base. Treat your base — your most loyal customers, your true believers — as kings. And if they are wrong, treat them as if they are right. Why? Because without your best customers, you are out of business. You are up a creek without a paddle. Your success, riches and power derive from that base. Your job, above all others, is to nourish and protect that base.

Forget all the bad negotiating; Boehner has now violated the most important rule in business or politics. As pathetic as he is at negotiating, he was always forgiven. But this last act of madness cannot be forgiven. He has bitten the hand that feeds him. He turned on, attacked and denigrated the true-blue heroes of the Republican Party. He attacked the people who keep the GOP in business.

Without the true-blue conservatives, you don’t have a business — or, in this case, a political party. You have nothing. Without our support, our energy, our enthusiasm, our hard work in the trenches and our donations, you have nothing. The GOP — like any business or political party — ceases to exist without its best customers.

Boehner lost sight of the rules of battle. A business is in business only because of its best customers. Take them away, and the richest business owner is the owner of nothing. Just as an army exists only because of its soldiers; demoralize them, and they become a defeated army. The greatest general is left with nothing. In Japan, that general would commit hari-kari. In America, his life is spared; but he is relieved of command and retired.

A political party is a political party only because of its base. Without its most loyal supporters and true believers, it is extinct. And the leader of that baseless, rudderless party — no matter how powerful, no matter how delusional — is a leader of nothing.

Boehner chose to attack that base. And for that sin, Boehner can never be forgiven. For the sake of the GOP and the future of America, Boehner must go.

The Jobs Report Is A Phony

 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root (WAR) for Personal Liberty. I am a small-businessman at ground zero. I don’t need Barack Obama, the Fed, economists or the media to tell me how the economy is doing. I live it. And I’m telling you, we’re all being lied to. The economy is not getting better; it’s getting worse.

Back in late 2007 and early 2008, I publicly predicted (numerous times) that we were entering the deepest recession since the 1929 Great Depression. At the exact moment I wrote about this, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke was testifying in front of Congress that the economy was fine, we were not in recession, and there was little threat of a serious economic decline. It turned out he was dead wrong about everything. A small-businessman always knows.

In my national bestselling book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, I predicted all of this: the decline of the economy, the death of jobs, the disaster of Obamacare and the murder of the middle class. It’s all happening in front of our very eyes.

Here’s what I know. We have a jobs disaster. The numbers are sobering. Yet the mainstream media is reporting the November jobs report as if “happy days are here again.” Every media headline reports a “fantastic jobs report.” And, establishment D.C. Republicans are so dumb, they accept government manipulated numbers as “fact.”

The truth is it’s all a lie. Obama propaganda. A massive cover-up. A Ponzi scheme aided and abetted by the Obama-adoring, Kool-Aid-drinking mainstream media.

First, are the numbers real? We recently found out in that in the run-up to the 2012 Presidential election, Census Bureau employees purposely reported hundreds of thousands of new jobs that did not exist. They created a false narrative that the economy was improving to fraudulently re-elect Obama. What makes you think that’s not still happening?

Why would you believe the jobs report from the same government that told you: “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it,” “Obamacare will make your insurance rates go down” and, more recently, “The Obamacare website is fixed.” All lies.

Why would you believe anything coming from an Obama Administration so corrupt that it sent the Internal Revenue Service to intimidate a Stage 4 cancer victim within days of his appearance on FOX News criticizing Obamacare.

But let’s assume the 7 percent November unemployment number the national media has made its headline is accurate. Why isn’t the media also reporting the government’s own U6 figure of 13.2 percent? U6 measures unemployment combined with underemployment, a statistic that every expert agrees is the more accurate picture of true unemployment. If a Republican were President, the 13.2 percent figure would be trumpeted in every headline.

But this is only the start of the Ponzi scheme. Assuming that more than 200,000 new jobs were created in November, why don’t the media report on what kinds of jobs are being created? Are these jobs that pay enough to live a middle-class lifestyle and feed your family, or crummy part-time jobs that don’t even allow employees to eat without receiving food stamps? The answer, of course, is the latter.

Once analyzed in detail, November’s jobs numbers will undoubtedly be exactly the same as the rest of 2013. Respected economist and author John Lott reported recently that 96 percent of the jobs created in this Obama economy since January are crummy part-time jobs.

Respected billionaire businessman and publisher Mort Zuckerman disagrees. He says 88 percent of the jobs created this year under Obama are crummy part-time jobs.

No matter which figure you believe, the Obama “recovery” is a mirage. This economy is doing well only if you want a job at McDonalds.

Even worse for taxpayers, of the jobs government claims to have created, almost half are government jobs.

Folks, Obama is using your taxpayer money to create government jobs that actually hurt the economy and raise your taxes. Your typical government employee collects more money in retirement than they made while working. Every government job is a gigantic net loss for taxpayers. This is a disaster. This is one of the major factors for how America wound up $17 trillion in debt — with a massive unfunded liability for government employee pensions. We desperately need private-sector jobs, not government jobs.

But this is no mistake. Obama is brilliant. He wants more and more government jobs, because government employees will always protect their jobs by doing Obama’s bidding (including reporting fraudulent jobs numbers at the Census Bureau, or persecuting Obama’s critics at the IRS). And, of course, they will always vote loyally Democrat and pay union dues (which turn into bribes that fund Democratic candidates).

How bad is the private-sector economy? A new study shows 41 of 50 States have lost private-sector jobs under Obama.

But even that doesn’t tell the full story. I’ll make an educated guess that 80 percent of the few private-sector jobs actually created under Obama belong to big business. Obama’s policies have purposely rewarded his backers in big business, while gutting small business — the economic sector where Americans can achieve upward mobility. If you want people to be self-sufficient, reward and encourage small business. If you want people to become dependent on government, create a “crony capitalist” system that puts government in bed with big business.

Small business drives the American dream. Like my father, who went from butcher to butcher-store owner, and then put his two children through Ivy League university. Jobs at McDonald’s, Home Depot and Wal-Mart are a place to get a start. But only a socialist like Obama (whose goal is to make everyone dependent on big government by wiping out the middle class) would consider creating low-paying jobs for big business a success. Next, of course, Obama dreams of giving amnesty to 10 million to 15 million illegal immigrants, guaranteeing (due to competition) nothing but low-wage jobs for decades to come.

Lastly, the biggest media scam of all is allowing Obama to report unemployment as “improving,” when the major reason for an improved unemployment number is due to people dropping out of the labor force to go on welfare, food stamps and disability. In October, a record 932,000 people simply stopped looking for work.

That’s what causes each month’s “drop” in unemployment. It isn’t jobs; it’s lost souls giving up because it’s impossible to find a job in Obama’s America, or because it pays more to sit at home collecting welfare.

Facts don’t lie:

The truth is America is experiencing an “Obama Great Depression.” Obama is the greatest jobs killer in U.S. history. And things will only get worse from here. Or did you think a bad economy with no jobs would get better now that Obamacare has been unleashed on the Nation? Obama has attacked business with $1.8 trillion in new regulations for 2014, massive new Obamacare taxes and dramatic increases in the cost of health insurance. And, to top it off, millions of individuals and small businesses are losing their insurance altogether. And in the midst of this, you thought the economy would improve? You believed the lies, fabrications and manipulations coming from this Administration? I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

Things are getting worse, not better. But Obama, the Fed, government economists and the Obama-adoring mainstream media can’t tell you the truth. Otherwise, we’d have rioting, unrest and perhaps even revolution in the streets. So they just keep lying and denying, while sending out government checks like candy to soothe the masses.

So the greatest Ponzi scheme in world history continues unabated.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root (WAR) for Personal Liberty. Enjoy your family and friends for the next three weeks. Rest up. We’ll fight to save America in the New Year 2014. Until then, merry Christmas, happy holidays and God bless.

Is Obama Too Big To Jail?

 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. A Chinese proverb says, “May you live in interesting times.” We certainly do. Historians will look back on this time as “the Obama criminal years.”

How lawless is the Barack Obama Administration? Many of the dirty deeds and scandals of Obama & Co. are public knowledge. Let’s start with the most astonishing.

Most citizens are aware that because of Obamacare, millions of Americans are losing their healthcare coverage. Is this incompetence or criminal fraud? One thing is certain: It would be fraud if a private-sector CEO knew that millions of customers would lose their insurance, yet repeated the same lie over and over: “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Period.” Why would we not hold a politician to the same standard?

That brings up the question: Is this President too big to jail?

But this fraud isn’t just about money and power. It’s about cancer patients, our fellow citizens, who may lose their lives as well as their healthcare coverage because of Obamacare.

Even innocent children with cancer are among the victims of Obamacare.

Yes, it turns out Obamacare is one big death panel. With their policies being canceled, these sick Americans are losing the very doctors, hospitals and treatments that have kept them alive. What if some of them die from the stoppage of treatment? What if some die from stress and worry? What if some commit suicide from depression? These are complicated questions. But isn’t the person whose lies and misrepresentations killed them responsible for their deaths?

So is this President too big to jail?

This President has no shame. How many Americans know that a cancer patient merely discussing the disastrous ramifications of Obamacare in public (thereby embarrassing Obama), is now being persecuted by the Internal Revenue Service? Yes, it’s true. Bill Elliott is that terminal cancer patient. He was audited by the IRS within days of a FOX News appearance.

The IRS scandal is far more widespread than the American public knows. It is not just about Tea Party groups. The IRS was used by Obama to go after any citizen daring to criticize him in the national media. I’m one of those victims. These actions by a President are absolutely criminal. Richard Nixon’s articles of impeachment included the same charge of using the IRS to punish critics and silence free speech. But terminal cancer patients?

Obama has sunk to new lows. I’m a big boy. What he did to critics like me is disgusting and un-American. But what he did to a terminal cancer patient is disgraceful and unimaginable. This President is an out-of-control bully, pure and simple. Will anyone show the courage to investigate and prosecute Obama?

Is this President too big to jail?

But wait (as late night infomercial pitchmen like to say); there’s more. When the citizens went to the “state-of-the-art” Obamacare website for help (to try to save themselves), they found it defective. It turns out the website was built so poorly, the personal information of consumers can be easily stolen. And it’s not just online scam artists we’re worried about. The Obama “navigators” themselves might do the stealing. After all, it turns out many of them have criminal records.

Rather than hiring one of many highly qualified American high-tech Internet companies, why would Obama give a no-bid contract for hundreds of millions of dollars to a firm with less than stellar credentials? Surely the reason couldn’t be that it’s the firm of one of Michelle Obama’s Princeton Black Alumni Association buddies? Don’t you wonder how many of those millions of taxpayer dollars are committed to Democrat causes or are now sitting in a Swiss bank account?

Can you imagine if this happened at a private-sector company? Can you imagine the outrage and criminal accusations coming from consumer protection advocates? Can you imagine how quickly the Federal government would shut down the business? The criminal would have been “perp walked” out of his office in front of waiting journalists and photographers. He’d be facing decades in prison.

So is this President too big to jail?

As bad as it is, Obamacare is just another of the nonstop scandals of this Administration. Any one of these scandals would have already forced a Republican President out of office. Obama owns all of them.

Benghazi: More absurd lies than Obamacare, a possible arms deal with rebels gone bad, and the cover-up of murder.

Fast and Furious: Another government arms deal gone bad, responsibility for the murder of a U.S. border guard, another blatant cover-up.

The National Security Agency scandal: Obama listens into all of our calls and communications. I hope he’s listening to mine. He’ll hear the word “impeachment” come up in every sentence.

The Associated Press scandal: Obama and paranoid buddies like Eric Holder are even illegally spying on their adoring Kool-Aid drinking friends in the media.

The IRS scandal: It’s not just about targeting his political opposition. It’s about the much more serious scandal of using the IRS to change the outcome of the election. Obama’s goal was to neutralize the powerful Tea Party groups to prevent a repeat of the 2010 GOP landslide. Guess what? It worked. Obama used the IRS to kill conservative momentum, intensity, and enthusiasm; silence criticism in the media; and starve conservative fundraising. These guys put the “thug” in Chicago.

The Census Bureau scandal: It appears government employees faked the unemployment numbers in the weeks leading up to the election to re-elect a President who wouldn’t know what a job looked like if it hit him in the face.

How could one leader be involved in this many lies, frauds, scandals and cover-ups? There’s enough here for a century of Presidents!

Forget impeachment; it’s time for criminal prosecution. There’s enough here to put any CEO away for multiple life sentences. Bernie Madoff would blush at what Obama has pulled off.

The question is: Is this President too big to jail?

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless America. And always remember: In this great country, no one is above the law.
