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.
