Why Obama Has Abandoned Israel And Why Jews Should Abandon Obama

 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. My video commentary this week is about the shocking news that President Obama has thrown Israel under the bus. It is titled Why Obama Has Abandoned Israel And Why Jews Should Abandon Obama. But certainly this commentary applies to not just Jews, but Christians and all Americans who support our great ally Israel and the right of Israel to exist.

Mitt Romney had an interesting, controversial and completely ignored line during his speech at the Republican National Convention. Mitt said, “Obama has thrown Israel under the bus.” Mitt knew something the rest of us didn’t. The story is shocking — as much for the betrayal of one of our strongest allies as for the timing.

Obama has gone rogue. As I’ve said for 3½ years, President Obama is no friend of Israel. But I thought his betrayal would be timed for sometime after the election — perhaps on a quiet Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday weekend. The fact he has openly thrown Israel under the bus before the election is a disturbing sign for Jews (and for all Americans who support the right of our longtime friend and ally, Israel, to exist). Can you imagine what Obama is capable of after the Presidential election if he never again has to answer to Jewish voters?

On Thursday, Aug. 30, TIME Magazine disclosed that U.S. Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey told reporters in London, “I don’t want to be complicit,” if Israel chooses to conduct a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. No top general would ever say anything like that without orders from the White House. Those are clearly Obama’s words, not Dempsey’s.

Even louder than the words are the actions of the Obama Administration. TIME reports that a U.S.-Israeli joint war games exercise was postponed several months ago to show Obama’s displeasure over Israel’s plans to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities. After being rescheduled for this fall, it has suddenly been scaled back drastically. TIME reports that “well-placed sources” in both countries have confirmed that the Obama Administration has slashed more than two-thirds the number of U.S. troops participating, decided not to send crews to operate Patriot anti-missile systems and will either cut in half or entirely eliminate the ballistic missile defense warships involved in the exercise.

A senior Israeli official told TIME the message the Obama Administration is sending is, “We don’t trust you.” I would contend the Israeli official is being very diplomatic. The real message is much more brutal: “Good luck, Israel. You are on your own.”

Everyone in the Obama Administration is aware that an attack by Israel on Iran requires the latest “bunker buster” bombs provided only by the U.S. military. Israel also knows that a pre-emptive strike on Iran (to save itself from the holocaust promised by Iran as soon as it has nuclear capabilities) will result in retaliation from both Iran and Hezbollah. With more than 40,000 missiles aimed at Israel from nearby Lebanon, Israel needs not only missile shields, but also military help from the U.S. to protect her civilian population and her very survival.

Even worse, the X-band radar system in the Israeli desert aimed at Iran and linked to Israel’s anti-missile systems to warn Israel of incoming missiles is manned by and controlled by U.S. military personnel. Without cooperation from the U.S. military, Israel is literally flying blind. The ability to save Israeli civilian lives and shoot down incoming missiles is in the hands of Barack Obama. And his message is clear, “We don’t have your back.”

Given the cold shoulder Obama has given Israel since his inauguration, it is not a major shock that he is the first U.S. President to refuse to help Israel defend her citizens and national security. What is a major shock is his showing in no uncertain terms his bias against Israel’s right to defend herself before the election.

The question is: Why? Obviously, first is Obama’s true, radical nature — he is no friend of Israel. Second, Obama had no choice but to abandon Israel now. As I’ve predicted publicly for months now, Israel is assured of no help after the election (if Obama is re-elected and no longer has to face Jewish voters ever again). Therefore, Israel’s best option is to order the attack before the U.S. election, when Obama’s distaste for Israel may be overcome by his desperate need for Jewish votes and Jewish donors to remain in power. Netanayu undoubtedly told Obama that he has reached the same decision.

Boxed into a corner, Obama is now doing all in his power to stop the air strike now, stalling it until after the election. And, of course, we all know Obama loves to please Russian President Putin. Rumors from sources in both Washington and Moscow report that Putin has asked Obama to handcuff Israel. We all heard Obama tell the Russians: “Sit tight and give me space, this is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Unfortunately, it’s now clear one of those “flexible items” is to abandon Israel.

As a Jew and a lifelong supporter of Israel, I would ask my fellow Jews to think long and hard at the voting booth on Nov. 6. Perhaps it is time to consider whether the historic voting patterns of Jews on behalf of the Democratic Party are in the best interests of the Jewish people? Is a vote for Obama a vote condemning Israel to become a sitting duck in the name of liberal U.S. politics or political correctness? Even more importantly, is voting for Obama over social issues or a woman’s right to choose worth risking another Holocaust?

My conclusion: It’s time for Jews to abandon Obama the same way Obama has abandoned Israel.

And this late-breaking news just in from an Israeli newspaper: sources quoting the fact that Obama went through back channels (EU nations) to give the message to Iran and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the message was to Iran — our enemy and Israel’s enemy — a madman with nuclear ambitions (Ahmadinejad) who has stated publicly time and again his goal is to wipe out every Jew in the world and destroy Israel. The back channel message from our President to Iran — a rogue, terrorist nation — was that we do not have Israel’s back and that Iran should not even think of attacking U.S. interests or military installations because we will not be part of the attack, we will not be supporting Israel in any way. Can you imagine?

This is like FDR going through back channels to tell Adolf Hitler that we will not have England’s back, so go ahead and attack Britain. But don’t attack the USA because we are not on the same team. Can you even imagine this is happening in our country? It’s time for Jews to abandon Obama the same way Obama has abandoned Israel and teach the Democratic Party a lesson.

You Didn't Win That Olympic Medal

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The Olympics just ended about three weeks ago. They are still fresh in our mind. But it’s been enough time that our Olympic athletes will soon be visiting the White House for that ceremonial visit with President Obama. You know, the President who believes you didn’t build your business. You don’t get credit for success. It’s always government that made it happen. So I thought it would be funny to imagine what Obama might say to our Olympic heroes. I call this commentary, You Didn’t Win That.

Can’t you just hear Obama’s speech to the U.S. Olympic athletes when they visit the White House? He’ll point to their gold medals and say, “You didn’t win that. Government did it for you. We built the Olympic training center, the roads that lead to it; we provide the coaches and team doctors. Since we won the medals for you, please place them in the communal pot behind the stage. These medals are now the property of the United States government.”

But wait. There’s more. With ultra-liberals there is always another lecture. Obama cares so much about “fairness,” “equality” and “social justice,” he can’t possibly allow a teachable moment to pass without a lecture.

“I want all the champion gold medal winners to share their winnings with the losers. Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, come on down. You guys are Exhibit A. It’s the collective — not the individual — that is important. All those gold medals you won hurt a lot of feelings. You are dividers — not uniters. You’re greedy. You should feel guilty for not slowing up enough to let others win a few medals too. We’ve got to spread the gold around.

“Michael and Ryan, you’re going to make $50 million off these Olympics. But that’s just not fair. What about all the other U.S. Olympians who will make nothing? The rowers, the fencers, the curlers. We can’t have winners and losers. Everyone should share in your success. So…

“Here is my Executive Order. Michael and Ryan: In the interest of equality, you will both give 50 percent of your $50 million endorsement money to the rest of the Olympians. That takes care of the Olympians. But remember, without our bean-counting bureaucrats and egomaniacal, blowhard politicians, you would never have won a thing. So, of the amount you have left, you have to give 70 percent to the IRS. I think that’s paying your ‘fair share.’ You owe us.”

But then Obama couldn’t help himself: “One more thing. I am taking this opportunity to announce my new Executive Order for Social Justice. It isn’t fair that there are so few African-American swimmers and so few white track athletes and basketball players. I am ordering the U.S. Olympic Committee to no longer determine who makes the Olympic team based on talent. From this day forward, it must be based on quotas and affirmative action. You must set aside 50 percent of all swimming spots for black athletes and 50 percent of all track and basketball spots for white athletes. And, of course, I’m also mandating a few token slots for Latinos, Asians and American Indians.

“For far too long, the Olympics have been about talent, regardless of race. That was wrong. That was offensive. That was then. Now it will be based on social justice. Who says people want to see good swimmers? I think they’d rather see a rainbow of diversity and equality.

“And, one last thing: taxes. Each medal winner has to pay a $25,000 tax on your medals. You know, those gold things you no longer own. Just because you work harder and smarter than the next guy you will no longer be allowed to hurt people’s feelings by beating them. Win and you will be punished with massive taxes.

“Finally, by Executive Order I’ve also added a United Nations carbon tax to your taxes due. Each of you polluted the world and caused a dramatic increase in global warming with your carbon footprints traveling to Europe. So whether you won a medal or not, each of you is fined $10,000. Make the check out to Michelle Obama.”

As the White House press conference ends, the athletes are depressed and bewildered. The entire Olympic team, now with no incentive to ever again train past the point of exhaustion, retires en masse. Obama is thrilled. It is exactly as he planned. By retiring at such a young age, they remind him of government employees. He promises them pensions for not working for the rest of their lives and, of course, that guarantees them as Democrat voters.

Thinking of the hope and change he has just created: fairness; equality; social justice; the joy of the collective; and, of course, the full credit now assigned correctly to government, for all of these Olympic triumphs bring tears of joy to Obama’s eyes. He thinks to himself: “Gosh, isn’t this great? The Olympics are now just like my economy. Talent is replaced by fairness. It’s great to be God!”

And now you know exactly how every business owner in America feels under Obama! I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week, same time, same place.

What If The Media Actually Told The Truth?

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Today’s video commentary is about a strange concept: What if the media actually decided to tell the truth? Have you seen the latest Newsweek magazine cover out this week? Ultra-left Newsweek’s cover story features a photo of Obama and the headline: “Hit the Road Barack, Why We Need a New President.” My, how the mighty have fallen! Is it possible the mainstream media are finally starting to grasp what I predicted three months ago: that Obama will lose in a landslide? Has the first domino fallen? As the media realize that Obama will not only lose, but lose big, I predict this will be the first of many negative headlines for Obama. After all, no one likes to bet on a lame horse.

Why the change of heart? The latest Gallop Poll has Romney up by 2 points. That’s before the GOP Convention. Rasmussen (my most trusted pollster) has had Romney up by 3 to 4 points most days for a solid month. Rasmussen also has Romney winning Indiana, North Carolina, Florida and dead even in Wisconsin (all States Obama won in 2008). Obama is in deep trouble and that’s before America gets to see Paul Ryan debate Joe Biden and realizes that Biden is a worn-out union hack with no knowledge of facts whatsoever.

What if the media actually try playing fair and balanced and telling the truth? Here is what they’d report:

If the media told the truth, instead of harping on Romney’s “female gap” they’d report on Obama’s “male gap,” “white gap,” “senior gap,” “Christian gap” and “military veteran gap.” Obama is sinking fast with all these important voting groups. Romney is winning by landslide margins with them all. Obama loses the male vote by as much, or more, than he wins among females. Funny how the media never mention that!

If the media told the truth, they’d challenge Obama’s lies that his bailout of GM and Chrysler is a model of success. In reality, it is a model of disaster: a $25 billion loss for the American taxpayer. If the media told the truth, they’d report that the much of the $25 billion went to pay off auto unions that contributed heavily to Obama, while stealing bondholders’ entire investment.

They’d also report that while Obama used taxpayer money to make whole every pension for every union member of GM and Chrysler, he let the pensions of non-union autoworkers go bankrupt. If the media think this is success, I’ve got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

If the media told the truth, they’d report that Obama is the first President in modern history to never pass a budget. How many Americans have heard that Obama’s most recent budget was voted down 99-0 in the U.S. Senate? Obama’s budget was so ridiculous that every single Democrat voted against it. I guess the media just forgot about that.

If the media told the truth, they’d call Vice President Joe Biden a racist and “gutter politician” for telling a primarily black audience the GOP plan is “to put y’all back in chains.” Cutting spending is hardly akin to slavery. The truth the media should report is that putting American taxpayers over $5 trillion more in debt in only 3½ years is enslaving our children and grandchildren to a lower quality of life. But the media have been careful not to mention that form of slavery.

If the media told the truth, they’d report that Paul Ryan’s plan reforms Medicare and saves it for future generations (with no change for anyone over 55) while President Obama has stolen $700 million from Medicare to pay for Obamacare (with no plan whatsoever to save this debt-riden, out-of-control program). They’d also report that Obama’s massive January tax increase raises taxes on dividends and interest to levels not seen in decades. Seniors live off investment income, interest and dividends. With Obama cutting their income, many seniors will lose their homes and retirement income. If the media told the truth, they would report: “This guy Obama clearly hates old people.”

Liberal feminists often call men “verbally abusive.” If the media told the truth, they’d report that Obama is the “verbally abusive President.” His never-ending punching bags are small-business owners and the rich. His off-teleprompter rants such as “You didn’t build that,” “The private sector is doing fine” and “We want to spread the wealth around” demonstrate Obama’s total economic incompetence and lack of understanding that America’s business owners provide the jobs and taxes that pays for government. How can any educated journalist protect a President so ignorant (and arrogant) as to not know that without businesspeople and entrepreneurs there would be no government services or employees?

If the media told the truth, they’d report Obama is “the bribery President.” Free contraception to women, amnesty through Executive Order to young Hispanics, advertising campaigns in Mexico to inform illegals in the USA that they qualify for food stamps, creating an Office of African-American Education. Every day, comes a new bribe to Obama’s voters, all within weeks of the election. Yet the media are silent. They are like Sgt. Schultz of the “Hogan’s Heroes” television series: “I see nothing! I know nothing!”

If the media told the truth, they’d report we are facing economic collapse. They would report the tragic economic indicators just out for July:

  • Last month, California’s sales tax revenues plunged a shocking $539 million below expectations.
  • The jobless rate rose in 44 States in July, including 9 out of 10 battleground States.
  • In the 10th (Ohio) it stayed even.

This is no recovery. And, here’s the worst news: The American Petroleum Institute reports that U.S. consumer demand for oil in July was the lowest since 1995. These figures are alarming, to say the least. Where are the media hiding while the economy collapses? Asleep at the switch.

My advice to the national media: Newsweek did it. You can do it, too. Break your Obama addiction. The truth will set you free! More importantly, it will set America free!

Well, a guy can dream, can’t he?

Turn Paul Ryan Into 'Obama's Shadow'


 

Welcome to Personal Liberty. I’m Wayne Allyn Root. My commentary this week is about Mitt Romney’s choice for Vice President: Congressman Paul Ryan.

But first, a comment on last week’s video: I told you about Obama’s college scandal at Columbia University. That video went viral. Over 80,000 of you viewed it in just the first day. Over 150,000 in the first week. It is well on its way to unheard of numbers in the hundreds of thousands — spreading from coast to coast — and I just want to thank all of you for watching and telling your conservative friends.

Well, I’ll tell you what: My commentary sure struck a chord with Americans. In one 24-hour-period I was on Sean Hannity radio, Sean Hannity TV, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Governor Mike Huckabee, Geraldo and the late night national radio show Red Eye. That’s all in one day. Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham and CNBC were blogging about my commentary; and Investors Business Daily published an entire editorial based on me and my revelations.

And I want to let you know I’m working on an update right now. I’ve had over 3,000 emails from my fans, and the most-asked questions are:

  • “Why does this matter?”
  • “What do you hope to accomplish?”
  • “Can your revelations bring down Obama?”

I’ll have my Part II soon. Please look for it.

Now, to Romney’s pick of Paul Ryan as Vice Presidential running mate. From a former Vice Presidential nominee to another, I have some advice. I’m going to tell Mitt the strategy that wins him the election: Use Paul Ryan as “Obama’s Shadow.” Because if there’s one man in America born for the job of debunking Obama’s myths and lies, it’s Paul Ryan.

Now, as a political pundit, I have to admit my initial reaction to Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan for V.P. was surprise and disappointment. Because most Americans don’t know who Paul Ryan is. And the Democrats will, of course, paint him as the mean man about to take Grandma’s Social Security away. Another issue is that Ryan won’t gain Romney any Latino votes or expand Romney’s base. And, quite frankly, he’s not the most exciting guy in the room. Ryan is a policy wonk extraordinaire and boy genius. But those are not ideal attributes for giving rousing speeches. Not surprisingly, my first choice for the job was Florida Senator Marco Rubio. In my opinion Rubio solved all of the issues above.

But after a day of thought, my opinion has changed 180 degrees. Romney made a brilliant move: He found himself a stealth weapon — someone that proves that Obama is a phony, someone who proves that Obama is not the smartest guy in the room. My advice (from one former Vice Presidential nominee to another) is to capitalize on Paul Ryan’s unique — actually one-in-a-million — brainpower and knowledge of budgets. More on that later.

First, Romney made a bold move by not taking the easy road with a Pawlenty or Portman (“old white guys” just like him). He picked the architect of the GOP Congressional budget plan: the only plan by any politician that at least attempts to slow the growth of spending (although I believe Ryan should have gone even further). Picking Paul Ryan embraces cutting government spending as the centerpiece of Romney’s campaign. He’s not hiding from controversy or what Obama’s socialist cabal calls “radical ideas.” Romney is going for it. To be blunt, I didn’t think he had it in him. Bravo.

The image Team Romney has created is simple and stark: Vote Romney/Ryan to at least try to control the size of government, cut spending and debt, reform entitlement programs to save them for future generations, and encourage small business to create jobs.

Or stick with Obama/Biden and choose pure insanity: Embrace even more spending, more debt, bigger government, and keep demonizing and punishing the small-business owners that create the jobs and actually pay for all government programs. Keep telling them “the private sector is doing fine” while you raise their taxes and ruin their businesses, and keep demoralizing them by telling them: “You didn’t build that.” Voting for Obama is like killing the goose that laid the golden egg.

Romney has laid down the gauntlet. Like the heroic firefighters running into the burning World Trade Center towers, Romney ran toward the tough choices, controversy and claims by liberals that women, children and elderly will starve. Romney doubled down. Again, I just didn’t think he had it in him.

Romney’s choice of Ryan also shows that his strategists made the decision that this election will be won in the “Heartland of America” with Midwestern values. The Midwest has been ignored for decades. Midwesterners are starving for attention. This is a brilliant move. This is a battle cry for every Midwestern, Catholic, Christian, suburban, hunter, fisher, NASCAR/NFL lover (especially if you love the Green Bay Packers), married-with-kids American voter. There ain’t no foolin’ around here.

Romney will win this election by out-raising and outspending Obama to bring out record numbers of those disillusioned by Obama’s lies and divisiveness: white, middle-class, Catholic, Christian, suburban, married and those voters who — regardless of race, religion or location — believe in those values that have made America the greatest Nation on Earth. The choice of Ryan as VP makes it clear that if you vote for Romney, you won’t get something for nothing, money doesn’t grow on trees and the way to solve a debt crisis is not with more spending and debt. Is it working? Romney raised $3.5 million in 24 hours after announcing Ryan as his VP choice.

Romney is gambling that the battle will be won in the Midwest: Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa (with Pennsylvania thrown in for good measure). Can Romney sweep those states? Ask Governor Scott Walker, who passed major union reforms in Wisconsin and then won his recall by a landslide. Congressman Paul Ryan has won by landslides year after year in a pro-union, heavily Democratic, Wisconsin Congressional district. Ryan knows how to win over moderate, independent, married-with-children voters who hunt, fish and go to church on Sundays.

But most importantly, as a former Vice Presidential candidate myself, I have advice for how Romney can put Paul Ryan’s brainpower and policy-wonk talents to use. Earlier today, I watched Congressman Ryan on YouTube debating and making mincemeat of both President Obama and Congressional leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the topic of Obamacare. This guy is seriously smart — as in boy-genius smart. So here’s my advice: Turn policy genius Paul Ryan into “Obama’s Shadow.” Send Ryan to crisscross the Nation to shadow Obama’s every move. Wherever Obama speaks, Ryan follows — in the same town, only hours or a day later. Ryan’s job is:

  • To intelligently rebut everything Obama says.
  • To call Obama on his fraudulent math.
  • To expose Obama for the phony he is.
  • To show by comparison that Obama is only a good talker, but he’s not as smart as advertised.

Ryan really is the smartest guy in the room. Put him side by side with Obama to prove it.

Ryan will expose Obama as a phony — in the same town and on the same local evening news. Ryan proves that Obama is full of hot air. Ryan unmasks him as a teleprompter reader with no understanding of the nuts and bolts of the budget. Ryan turns Obama into “the emperor with no clothes.”

This is Paul Ryan’s role of a lifetime. He is the brightest policy wonk in America. Unleash him to use his intelligence and mastery of facts to hound Obama and debunk Obama’s tall tales. If there is one man perfect for framing in detail how Obama’s ideas have damaged the U.S. economy and killed jobs, it’s Ryan. If there is one man who can paint the devastating picture of what happens to our children and grandchildren if we follow Obama’s plan for another four years, it’s Ryan.

I want all of you to YouTube the video of Paul Ryan schooling Obama about the lies and math fraud of Obamacare. Ryan clearly knows more about Obamacare than Obama does. My educated guess is that Ryan knows more about every issue than Obama does.

Paul Ryan is “Obama’s Shadow” — and the real smartest guy in the room. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week, same time, same place. God Bless.

Obama's College Classmate Speaks Out: The Scandal At Columbia That Ends The Obama Presidency

`
Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. And have I got a story for you. I am President Obama’s college classmate from Columbia University, Class of ’83. And I’ve got a hunch on the scandal that ends Obama’s hopes for a second term. No, it’s not his birth certificate. The scandal that takes down Obama’s Presidency happened 30 years ago at Columbia University. This is the smoking gun.

This also ties into Harry Reid’s hunch about Mitt Romney’s tax records. You see Senator Reid opened up Pandora’s box. He made it OK for any of us to play a guessing game. If Harry can guess about Romney’s taxes, without a shred of evidence… then a citizen and taxpayer and former college classmate of Obama has the standing to do a little educated guessing of my own.

You see my background is one of a kind. I’m one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators ever. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars – one of 60 legends in the history of Vegas to be honored with a 180 pound granite star in the sidewalk on Las Vegas Blvd. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia. My gut is almost always right. I became a self-made millionaire based on my gut instincts. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. And it’s hidden in his college records at Columbia.

But first let’s examine the game being played to distract us from the real scandal. It’s a diversion… subterfuge. I call Obama’s scheme “Weapons of mass distraction.” Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play dirty political hardball, the best its ever been played. They learned on the vicious, dirty streets of Chicago, where the mob appears downright nice compared to the politicians. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask your lapdog Senator Harry Reid to chase the Frisbee. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader is now making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows absolutely nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t go on offense and attack the real Obama scandal.

This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won multiple elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed court documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents. And Obama spends millions to armies of lawyers to keep them sealed.

By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s team of Chicago hit men creates a problem that doesn’t exist. And they even have the U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in their pocket… leading the charge… thereby assuring that the media will cover it and put Romney on the Defensive. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader joins a scheme to defame a squeaky clean opponent with the record of a choir boy. Romney is the guy you want to marry your daughter. Religious. Brilliant. Family man. Never cheated in his life. Harvard Law and Harvard Business. Donates millions to charity. So you get Harry Reid to make up stories out of thin air to frame an innocent man… and you get the biased liberal media to go along with the execution of an innocent man. But the reason for this baseless attack is what is so interesting… such brilliant but disgusting cynical strategy it could only come from Chicago… the point of this deception and distraction is to make Romney defend, so he can’t go on the offensive… to dirty his perfect reputation up… and to give the media something to talk about… something other than the real scandal they should be investigating.

But I have the answer for Romney. A challenge that shuts up Obama forever.

It’s time to call Obama’s bluff. Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the Nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 30 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records, never… EVER. Because they contain information that could destroy his political career. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again. End of story.

But why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.

If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama… or as he was known then, Barry Soetoro. Can you imagine…the President of the United States had a different name 30 years ago. How bizarre is that? You think you know him? You don’t even know his name.

But here’s where the mystery gets really strange. I knew everyone in the political science department. But I never met Obama in my life. Never saw him in my life. Never even heard of him in my entire four years at Columbia. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia has ever met him, saw him or heard of him either.

But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.

Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging for Obama’s dirt with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s? Doesn’t something smell rotten here?

So let’s down and dirty to figure out the scandal. The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s President of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.

Secondly, all of Obama’s old classmates and buddies at Occidental say he was a poor student there…spending lots of time smoking pot and attending radical meetings. His grades were awful they say. Again, we can’t prove it because Obama’s records are sealed. So if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? Do you know how hard it is to transfer into an Ivy League university – it’s almost impossible. And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?

Third, how did a poor kid pay for all these fancy schools? If he had student loans or scholarships, don’t American students need good grades to maintain student loans?

I can only think of one answer that explains all of these mysteries…

So here’s my gut. I believe Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. That’s a fact. His mother made him an Indonesian citizen. But… did his mother ever bother to change him back to a U.S. citizen? I’m betting not. He was abandoned by his mother and sent back to Hawaii to live with his grandparents. No one was paying much attention to young Obama, so his citizenship was never changed back. But suddenly as he nears college-age and starts thinking of how to get into college with lousy grades and no money… Obama learns that foreign students have a much easier path being admitted to U.S. universities. And even more amazingly, they get loads of aid and scholarships to attend college for free – something unavailable to U.S. citizens. It’s a completely different path – a path so easy that even a kid with no father… no mother to be found… no money… and lousy grades can get admitted to the best colleges… as a poor foreigner with an exotic background.

So a plan is hatched. Obama uses his Indonesian passport and citizenship to get into college. Suddenly even Ivy League Columbia University is a possibility for a foreign student from Indonesia. And it’s all paid for by the taxpayers.

That would explain how a poor student who rarely attended class and got mediocre grades, and with no money, was able to get accepted and pay for Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law. The door magically opened for a foreign student. Every college needs one or two bright exotic foreigners to create “diversity.”

Now the sad reality is there is some U.S. student — a Valedictorian of his or her school — who never got to go to Columbia or Harvard Law because Obama fraudulently took their place.

That would also explain the great mystery of how in the summer of 1981 Barry Soetoro was able to travel to Pakistan when no U.S. citizen was allowed to travel there. An American couldn’t make that trip…but no problem if you’re an Indonesian citizen using an Indonesian passport?

Of course, here’s the wrinkle…a foreign student isn’t qualified to serve as President of the United States. So that secret had to be sealed and covered up for the rest of all time. In 2007 everything happened so fast no one could even ask questions…ask Hillary! She never imagined Obama could beat her and never did any serious digging. Next thing you know, Obama is President. But with a massive secret threatening his legacy every second of every day. That explains why a sitting President of the United States would spend millions of dollars in legal fees to keep his past sealed.

If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:

  • He rarely ever attended class.
  • His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
  • He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
  • He never paid for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreigner like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.

Lastly, why do his classmates at Columbia not remember Obama? Was he a ghost? Did he never show up at class? My educated guess is that he was too busy smoking pot, attending Marxist meetings, and plotting the destruction of the U.S. economy and the overthrow of capitalism. Don’t laugh. It’s working.

If you think I’m “fishing,” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of? Cat got your tongue? If all we’ll find is a few C’s and D’s… then show us the records. If it’s OK for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.

It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff. Oh and one more thing, Mitt. Tell Harry Reid you’ll release all of your tax returns when Harry Reid releases all of his. Inquiring minds want to know how Harry Reid entered the U.S. Senate with no assets and became one of the wealthiest United States Senators, now worth millions, and living at the Washington, D.C. Ritz Carlton? I’m not saying he did anything wrong, but just like Mitt’s tax returns… shouldn’t Harry have to prove he did nothing wrong? We all want to see Senator Reid’s tax returns to solve the second biggest mystery in Washington DC… behind only Obama’s scandal at Columbia.

Message To Obama: You Owe Us!

 

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. My video commentary this week is in response to President Obama’s comments that business owners owe government and others for our success. My message to Obama?

We built it. We don’t owe you a thing. As a matter of fact, you owe us!

President Obama has it completely backward. Business owners don’t owe credit to government for their success. Government owes us credit for its existence. Government doesn’t enable or empower business owners. We empower government.

Business owners would do just fine without government. But government, government employees and the “takers” of society (those who take checks from government) could not survive without us: the creators, producers and taxpayers. Simply put, we pay all the bills for government. We’re the ones you ought to be thanking.

Let me paint a picture even an economic illiterate can understand. Let’s say you own a restaurant. Who needs whom? Do the patrons of your restaurant need you? No, they could choose any one of 1,000 other restaurants in your city. They could stay home and cook for themselves. Heck, they could even choose to not eat; most Americans could use a day off from eating.

But you — the business owner — could not live without customers. You desperately need their patronage. You need to be nice, genuflect and show gratitude. Without customers, you could not stay in business. Every employee of your restaurant is dependent on customers. Even ignorant leftists and socialists can’t intelligently argue with that.

Now let’s extend that “business model” to government. Government is the business. The taxpayers are the customers — just like that restaurant example. Government doesn’t survive if we don’t pay the bills. Government is dependent on us, our hard work, our taxes. If we go on strike and stop paying, government goes out of business.

The only difference is that in a free market capitalist society, the customer freely chooses to spend his or her money at the business of their choice. But in the case of government, the customer is limited to only one choice. If government can’t pay the bills, instead of being forced out of business, government just raises taxes and extorts more money (legally, of course).

So why does Obama think we owe him? Sure, we need the things that help our society and economy grow: infrastructure (i.e., roads, bridges, traffic lights, police, fire, garbage, sewers, hospitals, airports, schools) and national defense. Although, much of that could be handled by private enterprise. But Obama misses the crucial point: We (business owners and taxpayers) paid for that with our taxes. We built it! You owe us a debt of gratitude.

Without our business taxes, Social Security taxes, payroll taxes, workers’ compensation taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, income taxes and estate taxes (we even pay you after we’re dead), there would be no money for all those things that Obama values. Why would we thank you for things we paid for? When the customer walks out of the restaurant, or hardware store, or toy store, who thanks whom? The business owner thanks us for spending our money in his establishment.

Instead of telling us how much we owe government, the progressive leftists and socialists should be thanking us. Without taxpayers (especially high-income business owners), you wouldn’t be able to build roads, bridges, highways, schools or airports. Your infrastructure exists because of our hard work. Your schools exist because of rich business owners who pay huge property tax bills. Your Social Security, Medicare, welfare, food stamps and unemployment insurance exist because of business owners paying into the system.

Yes, President Obama, it all exists because business owners do, in fact, work harder and smarter. And you had better thank God we do it, or you’d be up the proverbial creek without a paddle. We’re not dependent on government. Mr. Obama, every government program, every government employee and every handout addict depend on us. If we don’t write the checks, you don’t get paid. Or do you think money grows on trees?

 

Like any smart small business owner, government should be treating its customers with honor, respect and gratitude. Mr. Obama, you need to learn to say “please” when you ask for our money and “thank you” after we pay. Learn how to treat customers well — or they will go away.

Ah, there’s the problem. You believe we can’t go away. But it’s happening right now, before your eyes. In response to the way you have treated customers (i.e., taxpayers and business owners), they are, in fact, leaving. American business is on strike. That’s why there are no new jobs, and there won’t be until after Nov. 6. The customers are on strike.

Many are scaling back. Some are going underground rather than work all day like slaves to pay 60 percent of our earnings to you. Some are retiring — or at least thinking about it seriously. A poll only days ago reported that 83 percent of doctors are considering retiring because of Obamacare. So you see, Mr. Obama, the idea of citizens being slaves to you doesn’t work out so well.

And then there’s the big one: Americans are leaving for places that treat customers better. Even Obama’s rich, elite, leftist crowd is refusing to pay the higher taxes he wants. One of the co-founders of Facebook renounced his citizenship and left for Singapore — where the income taxes are more tolerable at 20 percent or less and the capital gains taxes are zero. Even though he’s a latte-drinking, tree-hugging San Francisco Bay area liberal, he left America rather than pay Obama’s future oppressive taxes.

Denise Rich could be one of the top five Democratic contributors in America over the past 20 years. She is best friends with the Clintons. Yet she renounced her citizenship just days ago. She, too, refuses to pay the massive Obama taxes on the way.

So far it’s a trickle of ultra rich who are leaving. Soon, if Obama is re-elected, it will become a torrent. I personally know hundreds of business owners exploring their options right now, many ready to leave the moment Obama is re-elected. This is called running a business without any customers. The taxpayers are unhappy. The only ones left will be Obama’s voters: the takers. But there won’t be anyone left to take from.

And when that happens, Obama will learn an important business lesson: bankruptcy.

Why Are Obama, Democrats Economically Illiterate?

 

Welcome to Personal Liberty. I’m Wayne Allyn Root. My commentary today is about the economic ignorance gap between conservatives, capitalists and the dunces on the left.

Good old John Edwards was actually right about one thing. He said there were two Americas. Under Obama, the John Edwards fantasy has come true. The first America is represented by those who work in the government sector (who almost always support Obama and vote Democrat) and who think the private sector is doing just fine. The second America is represented by private-sector entrepreneurs, small-business owners and job creators (who almost always support conservative candidates and causes) who know the terrible truth: The economy is in horrible shape. The difference is due to economic ignorance. To save America, we must ignore those in the government sector and start listening to those in the private sector who are living at “ground zero.” They are the experts. They have “boots on the ground.” They understand firsthand what Obama’s policies have created: complete economic collapse.

The dirty secret rarely discussed or explained by the media is this gap between what Americans on the right think of the economy versus what those on the left think. See the polls. Democrats think the economy is in recovery with a bright future. Republicans think the economy is in horrible shape and worsening. How could two groups look at the same economy and see things so differently? Why don’t the media discuss this disparity? The simple truth is the media don’t like the answer.

The truth is Democrats who so want to support their President are either delusional or, more likely, ignorant of basic economics. Let’s call them economically illiterate. Quite frankly, it’s hard to blame them. Most Democrats I know work for big government, a big union, a big corporation or the media. They don’t sell anything. They don’t own a business or work on commission. They are paid for just showing up, never based on performance or profits. They don’t know about budgets, profits or losses. They get a safe paycheck every week and have a pretty much guaranteed job for life and a pension when they retire. They are nice people, but they don’t have a clue about what’s really going on, because they don’t sell things on Main Street. Nor do they have any of their own money at risk. Nor do they notice or care if their employer (the government) bleeds billions of dollars in losses. They can see only as far as their own weekly paycheck.

Most Democrats simply punch a clock and get paid week in and week out — the same as last year and five years ago and 10 years ago. As a matter of fact, they get automatic raises every year if they work for government. As long as they still have their job (which 99 percent of government employees do), their lives are pretty much untouched by the economic tragedy around us. No one is saying they are bad people. They aren’t. But they sure aren’t experts on how you create jobs or turn around an economy.

The private sector is a completely different story. Most of my friends who are Republican, conservative or Libertarian either work for themselves or get paid based on commission or performance (real estate brokers, stockbrokers, insurance brokers, mortgage brokers). They all know that the United States is in total economic collapse and headed for a Greece-like disaster. They know because their incomes are down by 20 percent, 30 percent, 50 percent and more. The private sector is devastated from coast to coast. We are all shell-shocked. We’ve never seen anything like this in our lifetimes.

So there you have it. The economic ignorance gap explained.

When you want to fix a clogged drain, you don’t call an economist; you call a plumber. When you want to solve a murder, call a police detective. Put out a fire? Call a fireman. You want to learn math? Call a teacher. You want bread? Call a baker. Now, I can’t do any of those things. So calling me would be a big mistake. That’s why we shouldn’t listen to plumbers or bakers or teachers or government employees (even the ones who are heroes) when we want to save our economy or create jobs. You call a job creator. Call a businessman or businesswoman. But don’t call Obama, a community organizer. Don’t call any Democratic politician. You’ll get a Great Depression. Look around.

The people who live in a government world have the same basic income year after year. They know zero about economics or the risks of using their own money to run a business on a budget (or go broke and lose everything). In their world, government takes care of you, hands you a check, protects your job for life and allows you to retire early on a $100,000 pension. Their economy is just fine. They are blissfully ignorant and protected from the harsh reality of the real world. Who protects them? Who is their guardian against the realities and harshness of life in the real world? Obama and Democratic politicians like him. No wonder they vote for Obama, idolize him and ignore reality to protect him. Their jobs and incomes depend on his benevolence and bribery.

The same goes for members of the media. New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman is Exhibit A. Paul Krugman — like most government employees — thinks the answer to the bankruptcy of America due to binge spending by government, is more binge spending by government. They give you Nobel Prizes for that? What’s the category: delusion? Like Krugman, the economic knowledge of Obama’s supporters comes from books. Unfortunately, the books were written by Karl Marx.

Then there’s the rest of us, struggling in Obama’s America. Those of us in the private sector, who risk our own money, run our own businesses or are paid based on performance are being decimated, watching as our life’s work is melting away. Forget about paying ourselves; we’re struggling to keep our doors open, make payroll and, now, pay for Obamacare. It’s that bad. Oh, did I forget to mention that we are being hounded and harassed by the IRS like never before in history. How can anyone run a business and create jobs in an environment like this?

How about some examples? A Wisconsin flag seller just filed for bankruptcy. In Obama’s economy a patriot can’t make a living selling America flags. Next we’ll hear that Bible sellers are going out of business, too. The ESPN Zone restaurant chain went out of business. Under Obama, you can’t make a living anymore selling cheap food and overpriced beer.

Even Vegas is in trouble. The only casinos making money are those whose revenues are mostly from Macao. Their Vegas operations are dying, but they make so much money in China it doesn’t matter anymore.

And then there’s the NFL. The richest sport in the world can’t fill stadium seats anymore. Watch any sports event nowadays, and you’ll see wide swaths of empty seats. You can’t sell anything in Obama’s America — not even tickets to popular sports events.

Think these are isolated examples? Last week we heard that U.S. manufacturing activity plummeted to the lowest level in 3 years. Then, a few days ago, we got another horrendous jobs report with only 80,000 jobs created in the whole country. This all proves what I’ve been saying for 3 1/2 years: Obama’s toxic ideas have produced a slow-motion economic collapse. Just like in Europe, add together a toxic stew of big taxes, big spending, demonization of business owners, too many government rules and regulations, union intimidation, IRS intimidation, billions wasted on green energy, billions more on high speed rail that no one wants to ride and lawyers trying to sue us all out of business (if the unions, government regulations and IRS haven’t already succeeded), and you get economic disaster. It’s all happening right now, right in front of our eyes. It’s pretty simple to connect the dots.

So the economic ignorance gap tells it all. Anyone who makes a living by selling something, anything at all, is in deep trouble. They see an ever worsening disaster under Obama — up close and personal. They fear for the survival of their businesses and they are terrified for the future of America. These are the people we ought to be listening to. The private sector is in distress. We see and feel this Obama Great Depression deepening.

The Democrats who tell pollsters “everything is fine” may be nice people, but they are economically ignorant. Dunces. Put them in the corner with a dunce hat. Worse, their gravy train is based on stealing money from Peter (taxpayers) to pay Paul (themselves). So they aren’t just ignorant; they are biased. They have a rooting interest for an economy based on spending more so their gravy train continues. No wonder they think things are just fine.

But soon, when government announces there is no money to keep paying for 21 million government employees or the bloated pensions of millions of retired government employees, their story will change radically.

Don’t believe me? Just ask a government employee in Greece what the end feels like. Obama’s supporters will soon get a dose of economic reality.

A Business Owner's Angry Response To Obama


Wayne Allyn Root responds to President Barack Obama’s recent assertion that government, not entrepreneurs, is responsible for business success in the United States. Root, Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983, notes that nearly all of his classmates at the college were openly socialist or Marxist. He says that the President’s most recent remarks are simply an act of the Marxist-in-Chief coming out of the closet.

How To Survive An Obama Great Depression

The economic news is all bad. Why is all this happening? Why is the world economy in free fall? Well, it’s not just Barack Obama’s fault. Or the Democrats’. Or the Republicans’. Or any one party in Europe. It’s the fault of each one. It’s a team effort. It’s the synergy of big government progressives who can never find a dollar to cut in the budget, for fear of offending one group, or one person, or one voter. So spending never gets cut. Wayne Allyn Root explains.

Why Public Employee Unions Lost Big In Wisconsin And California

Public sector unions are the real threat to our Nation’s future. Government employee pensions will threaten the American dream and wipe away our quality of life. America is doomed if we don’t dramatically reform public pensions today. The private sector is strapped, and the public sector is sitting pretty. Private sector taxpayers are angry. We won’t take it anymore. That’s why Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker won last week.

 

Did Obama Just Lose To A Prison Inmate?

West Virginia, where a prison inmate on the Democratic Primary ballot won 10 counties against a sitting President, is symbolic of Barack Obama’s unpopularity in vast swaths of the country. Obama is in trouble, and his popularity is as low as it can get among much of the population. Wayne Allyn Root shares the remarkable details and explains what it means for Obama.

 

What I Said About Capitalism In My Speech At Harvard

In a recent speech to college students, President Barack Obama described capitalism as “a broken-down theory,” blaming it for the current economic problems. Wayne Allyn Root says we need to deliver the exact opposite message to students and explain that only capitalism creates true hope and opportunity. Root did so himself recently, speaking to Harvard University students. Root reports that capitalism and entrepreneurism are alive and well — even at Harvard University, the bastion of intellectualism and liberalism.

 

Atlas Shrugged: Is American Business On Strike Against Obama?

Under President Barack Obama, Atlas Shrugged has come to life, explains Wayne Allyn Root. Civilization cannot survive when people are forced to be slaves to government. And without business owners who are willing to risk their own money, there are no taxes to pay for government. There are no jobs, either. Obama’s tax-and-spend philosophy is a dismal failure, causing business owners to go on strike — permanently.

The Lessons Of The Secret Service Scandal

Wayne Allyn Root says the Government Services Administration scandal shows why our government is bankrupt: It’s because government employees are spending other people’s money. On the other hand, the Colombian prostitution scandal could serve as a valuable lesson to all government employees because of something more shocking than the sex. The Secret Service agents did two things that government employees usually don’t while on official business: They used their own money and even attempted to get a better deal.
