The Rage And Revenge Of The Middle Class

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root of Personal Liberty. Barack Obama and the Democrats are facing a disaster at the voting booth in November. His ratings have hit all-time lows. Seventy percent of the public believes America is headed in the wrong direction.

Polls rate Obama the worst president since World War II — lower than even Richard Nixon or Jimmy Carter.

And Obamacare also rates at all-time lows. Remarkably it just experienced one of the biggest month-to-month opinion drops in the history of polling.

Yet Obama and his Kool-Aid-drinking Democratic supporters are so ideological, delusional and out of touch with middle-class America, they don’t understand why this is happening.

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class,” is about how America and our greatest middle-class asset (the middle class) are being destroyed from within.

It is important to know this murder is not just due to misguided, inept or amateurish policies. It is a deliberate, purposeful and planned destruction. Every day, the middle class sees their jobs being destroyed and replaced by low-wage, part-time jobs and/or government checks. Every day, their bills for gasoline, electricity, groceries and health insurance go up. Every day, their job prospects, income and assets go down.

Little by little, the proud middle class is being forced to grovel for government checks or subsidies just to survive. It is not happening by accident, mistake or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan, and it is succeeding. How do I know? I was Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, where we studied this exact plan that he has been implementing for the past six years.

It took a while, but middle-class Americans are finally realizing that with friends like Obama, who needs enemies? They’re finally learning to watch what Obama does, not what he says. The middle class is finally understanding that when Obama says he wants to “save” the middle class, the proper reaction is to reach for our wallets.

What made the light bulb go off? What turned the middle class against Obama? In a word: Obamacare. The reason is simple. Obamacare is no longer a theory in a campaign speech. America’s middle class is now living and experiencing Obamacare.

Here’s a story that sums up what is happening in the real world — outside Washington, D.C. I landed at the airport last week and hailed a cab. With no prodding, and as cab drivers are prone to do, the taxi driver wanted to vent. About what? Obamacare. He believes Obamacare has ruined his life. His words, not mine.

This taxi driver had just heard from his insurance agent. He and his wife are in their late 40s. They just found out their premium will double starting Jan. 1. But that’s only the start of their pain. Their co-pay is tripling from $10 per doctor visit to $30. Their surgery coverage is going from 90 percent to only 80 percent. And their deductible is doubling from $500 to $1,000. Add it up and this middle-class couple faces a tripling of healthcare expenses.

The reason, of course, is because Obamacare demands this middle-aged couple pay to cover pregnancy, prenatal care, sex change surgery and abortions — none of which they’ll ever need in his remaining lifetime. And, of course, the middle class has to pay double or triple to cover the costs of 30 million poor people receiving Obamacare free.

While I don’t know if this cabbie understood the reasons why his healthcare costs were tripling, he certainly understands the effect these dramatic Obamacare cost increases will have on his middle-class lifestyle. It will destroy it.

He also clearly understands his options. He said his options are to:

  • Go without health insurance (now against the law) and pray no one in his family gets sick.
  • Or declare bankruptcy, give up his home in foreclosure, and move into a small apartment.
  • Or quit his job and live on the government dole.

These are the choices left for middle-class Americans because of Obamacare.

My personal story is similar. Before Obamacare, my family’s health insurance was $500 per month. Today, it’s $1,700 per month (but about to get much worse). Aetna just canceled my policy (effective Jan. 1). I’ve never been sick. They blamed it on the mandates and costs of Obamacare.

Will the new policy be $2,500 per month? $3,000? How high can it go? Few small-business owners can afford $30,000 or more per year for health insurance. This is a disaster. This is financial ruin. As small business owners like me close our businesses or lay off employees to pay for Obamacare, that’s the death of full-time jobs in America.

This is the murder of the middle class. This same story is playing out across America. The middle class is being financially murdered, and they know it. It’s hitting their pocketbooks hard. While many of us conservative pundits predicted it, the cat is now out of the bag. Obamacare is no longer a theory on paper or political lies at a campaign rally. Obamacare is the law. People are experiencing it, and it is destroying middle-class lives from coast to coast.

So finally, the slumbering giant has awakened. The middle class understands the truth: Obamacare isn’t helping us. Obamacare is our enemy. We now know Obama committed fraud when he said, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” We know he lied when he said our prices would go down. We know he lied when he said our quality of care would not go down. We know he lied when he said we could keep our current doctors. We know he lied when he said Obamacare would help the economy. We know he lied when he said it wouldn’t kill jobs. We now know that Obamacare is the death of our middle-class quality of life.

But that was the plan all along. It was never about improving healthcare. It was always about income redistribution to shift the cost to the middle class. It was always about making the middle class poor and dependent on government.

Yes, Obama has been successful in his purposeful plan to murder the middle class. But wait until he sees what we’re going to do to him and his Democratic allies in November. The middle class is enraged like never before. And we will have our revenge.

Legendary Business Owner Warns Of Economic Collapse

Hi! I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I just interviewed one of the most successful businessmen in America today — a small-business owner who became a business titan. He is living proof the American dream used to work. But no more. His story not only proves the American dream used to work, it also proves why it no longer works. Wait until you hear what he has to say about trying to run a business in this economy.

My new book, The Murder of the Middle Class, paints a picture of economic devastation throughout America. Because of big government overreach, onerous taxes, debt, regulations, lawsuits and increased Internal Revenue Service attacks on business, the odds of starting a new business and succeeding have been badly damaged. This is precisely why there is a severe shortage of new full-time, middle-class-wage jobs. Small business traditionally creates a majority of new jobs, yet small business is under withering attack by the Barack Obama Administration, the judicial system and our political class.

I can quote hundreds of factual statistics proving the American economy is in severe decline. Recently, we learned American household wealth has declined by more than one-third in only 10 years. Over the same time period, electricity, water, fuel, food and tax costs have soared by as much as more than 100 percent.

But why deal with sterile statistics? Let’s go right to the source. Let’s hear the reason for the decline of American business direct from a superstar businessman who has “boots on the ground.” He understands exactly what it takes to succeed… and exactly what’s wrong with today’s American economy.

Wayne Gorsek
SPECIAL/Wayne Gorsek

Wayne Gorsek is the quintessential American entrepreneur. He has lived the American dream. Raised and adopted by his grandparents (who lived in a 14-by-70 single-wide mobile home), Gorsek started a tiny vitamin company in Springfield, Ill., out of a basement in 1994. Gorsek grew his small company into the most successful online vitamin retailer in the world. His company became one of the few in history to earn “Inc. 500 Hall of Fame” status. For 15 years, Gorsek’s company grew at a remarkable 50 percent a year pace for more than 15 years. He became “America’s King of Vitamins.”

Gorsek was living the American dream. He took his company public on Nasdaq in 2009 for a $320 million valuation. Along the way, he gave well over 1,000 Americans a full-time job with good middle-class wages and benefits. Many of his employees and investors made a fortune when his company went public; the average return to investors was measured in thousands of percent. Gorsek retired at the age of 42 and bought not one, but two, new private jets and earned two single-pilot jet-type ratings. His story is a living, breathing example of how capitalism, combined with hard and smart work, can produce extreme success for everyone involved.

But today, Gorsek has a new story and a message every American needs to hear. Unfortunately, his updated story is proof positive that no recovery is coming and no middle-class jobs rebound is possible.

Here is the eye-opening Part 2 of this story. Gorsek got bored by retirement and decided to get back in the game. He took about $26 million of his own money and started two new vitamin companies called and (you’ve seen the brand at His company also manufactures Martha Stewart’s new vitamin brand, sold at Walgreens.

That’s where the story gets interesting.

Gorsek reports on how things have changed. “It doesn’t surprise me that there are 92 million working-age Americans no longer working; and, even worse, 108 million are now on one or multiple forms of welfare. It doesn’t surprise me that for the first time in history more businesses are failing each day than starting. I’ve now seen the reasons for the murder of the middle class up close and personal.”

Gorsek says things have changed dramatically since he started his first company in 1994 and not for the better. “I have found it three times more expensive and far more stressful and difficult compared to 20 years ago. The differences are stunning. I did not have to risk $26 million of my own money to build a state-of-the-art vitamin manufacturing facility in Las Vegas. I didn’t have to, but I wanted to. I did it to create jobs; to lower vitamin prices and significantly improve the formulations with ‘Made in USA’ vitamins for consumers; and to help turn around the economy.”

Gorsek continues, “Don’t forget my timing; I made the decision to invest $26 million during the worst economy since the Great Depression. Shouldn’t entrepreneurs and financial risk-takers like me be thanked and rewarded? Instead, I feel demonized, denigrated, targeted and punished. Fear and uncertainty of the government is reason No. 1 why there are [sic] a lack of quality full-time jobs.”

But Gorsek sees many more problems. “A trillion [dollars] a year in welfare spending incentivizing people not to work has made it hard to find quality employees. Why work when you can stay home, sleep late and collect dozens of different welfare checks, free food, free cellphones, free healthcare and many other freebies from government?

“Then there are the much higher income taxes and capital gain taxes; employment taxes; hundreds of thousands of pages of onerous regulations, fees and fines; plus the lawyer and accounting costs to comply with a maze of city, county, State and Federal laws.

“Now add in Obamacare, the biggest job killer ever. Because of the massive costs of Obamacare, many employers have no choice but to lay off employees, or create only part-time, low-wage jobs. When I started my prior company in the 1990s, healthcare costs were $1 trillion per year; they are now at nearly triple that insane level to $2.8 trillion per year.

“Lastly, the ease for employees to file frivolous lawsuits is truly a disgrace. Lawyers are job killers, but guess who runs government and makes the laws? Lawyers. It just doesn’t pay to risk your money to start a business anymore when the chance of failure is now near 100 percent, and the government has monopolized the wealth and power to the Fortune 1000 companies (because they are the only ones that can afford to ‘pay to play’).”

Gorsek’s advice is simple, if only our political leaders would listen. “If Americans fail to elect politicians that will actually reduce the taxes, regulations and make it harder to file frivolous lawsuits (with loser-pay laws), as well as reduce the size and spending of government, while providing incentives for businesses creating the jobs, you will see the continued decline of the U.S. economy, the death of good jobs and the murder of the middle class. We’re staring at the end of the American dream.”

That’s priceless, common-sense advice from a proven business builder and job creator who has tried it twice and who sees the stark differences in America today. Gorsek’s conclusion is simple: Because of these changes, the second time around is much more difficult, if not impossible. At this moment in time, the American dream, small business and the middle class are being murdered.

Gorsek wanted me to end this story by reminding everyone to buy only “Made in USA” brands whenever possible to support those companies creating jobs in the United States. A man who lives his own advice, Gorsek drives a Ford pickup — not only because Fords are made in the U.S., but because Ford is the only American automaker that didn’t accept a bailout. Gorsek is an all-American hero.

Here’s How To Impeach Obama: For Consumer Fraud

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. One-third of Americans want to impeach President Barack Obama. That’s before they even understand the charges.

Although many Republican leaders like House Speaker John Boehner think there are no grounds for impeachment or just not enough evidence to convict, the group that supports impeachment thinks there is more than enough evidence ranging from the Internal Revenue Service scandal to Benghazi to Fast and Furious to various instances of government overreach and violations of the Constitution with executive orders.

I believe they’ve all got it wrong. The perfect impeachment charge isn’t any of those. It isn’t even the soon-to-be-charge of violating the Constitution by giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens through executive order (rumored to be coming within 30 days).

The perfect impeachment charge is fraud.

It was a fraud when Obama knowingly lied, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” And “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.” And “Your insurance premiums will not go up.” There is no question Obama knew they were lies when he said them.

And that is clearly fraud!

This crime has 300 million witnesses. This crime was recorded on television dozens of times. This crime is easy to prove. You can add in all the other scandals, frauds and lies as Articles of Impeachment 2 through 10; but Article 1 addresses the Obamacare lies.

And here’s the important part: This crime resonates with the average American. This crime hits home. It’s costing them dearly (in the pocketbook) and also some with their lives (cancer patients who have lost their insurance). Americans already talk about this crime in their living room and around the kitchen table.

This crime is simple, easy to prove and easy for the average American to understand. Obama knowingly used fraud, lies, misrepresentation and coercion (by the IRS) to induce Americans to support Obamacare, knowing that if he told the truth, they would never support it. We the citizens of America are victims of a massive criminal conspiracy. The man at the center of this world-class fraud is Obama.

If you have any doubt this was a criminal act, let’s compare the crimes committed by Obama to those of convicted TV infomercial con man Kevin Trudeau. Remember him? His 30-minute infomercials ran day and night on cable TV for the past decade. This past February, Obama’s own Administration convicted and sentenced Trudeau to 10 years in Federal prison for knowingly making untrue statements about a weight-loss book he was selling.

I don’t question whether Trudeau is a fraud. I’m sure he got what was coming to him. But Trudeau is a small-time crook compared to our President. Obama scammed millions of Americans out of their health insurance, raised prices dramatically (thereby damaging and bankrupting the middle class), killed millions of jobs (ask the Congressional Budget Office about that one) and arguably contributed to a number of deaths (with many more to come).

In my new book, The Murder of the Middle Class, I made the prediction that we’d soon hear about sick Americans who died because of Obamacare. The wait is over. Linda Rolain, a Las Vegas woman, lost her battle last month to brain cancer after a three-month delay due to the faulty design of the Nevada Obamacare exchange.

The government accused Trudeau of lying and exaggerating to sell his weight-loss book. The argument is that he called weight loss “easy” on TV; but then when you actually read the book, you found out it’s pretty hard to lose weight. The government argued that without the lies he couldn’t have sold the book, and that is fraud.

Isn’t that exactly how Obama sold Obamacare? He knowingly lied again and again. He painted a picture of 30 million new patients, but no cost increases. As a matter of fact, he claimed costs would be reduced. He relied on words like “free,” “no cost,” “prices will go down,” “the debt will go down,” “no jobs will be lost” and “Obamacare will help the economy.” All lies, and he knew it all along — pure fraud, the kind of fraud that results in long prison sentences for private sector CEOs.

The biggest whopper of all: “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” He told this lie while his own internal White House reports showed that up to 93 million Americans would lose their insurance because of Obamacare.

Obama told the middle class a lie to sell his product, because he knew if he told the truth, no one would buy it. How does that differ from Trudeau?

Like Trudeau, Obama could never have sold Obamacare to the American people without lying and misrepresenting. But Obama’s fraud didn’t cost us $30 each. Obama’s fraud is costing each of us thousands of dollars per year. Obama’s fraud may add up to the first-ever trillion-dollar scam. Bernie Madoff, get out of the way. Obama is arguably the biggest thief in world history.

And some of us will lose our lives because of his fraud. Ask Rolain’s family about that.

If Trudeau deserves 10 years in prison, shouldn’t Obama receive a life sentence for the fraud he’s committed?

While it is my personal belief that Obamacare was always the centerpiece of Obama’s purposeful plan to murder the middle class and kill capitalism, there is no possible doubt that legally and Constitutionally the lies told by Obama (on camera) to sell Obamacare are an impeachable offense.

P.S. Days ago, the health insurance policy for my family of six was canceled by Aetna, which blamed the cancellation on the mandates of Obamacare. Under Obama, my health insurance premium went from $500 per month to $1,700 per month. Now, it is canceled.

I can testify as to the fraud committed. I am a witness to the murder of the middle class. Obama must pay. If no business is too big to fail, I think we can all agree that no political leader is too big to jail.

It’s time for impeachment.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I hope you’ll read my newly released book, The Murder of the Middle Class. It’s available at any bookstore, Costco or Sam’s Club. Or, of course, you can order at right now. See you next week. God bless America.

Send The Invasion Of Illegals To Beverly Hills And Georgetown

Hi! I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The massive illegal immigrant invasion of our southern border is more than just a national crisis. It’s part of the greatest conspiracy in world history — a purposeful attempt to create catastrophe, overwhelm the system and force the American people to make a dreadfully wrong decision under duress.

Barack Obama wants our good-hearted Christian Nation to see women, children and families begging for help, begging to live the American dream. He wants immigrants to be in the worst possible shape after a long journey from Central America — starving, injured, diseased and in such terrible shape our hearts break and we agree to take them all in.

He is purposely creating a crisis, hoping to force us to overreact by agreeing not only to help these new arrivals, but to grant amnesty for 12 million other illegals already here.

He wants us to approve government expansion and billions of dollars in new spending. Will he use that money to “solve” the crisis? No! He’ll use it to pay for lawyers for each illegal immigrant (to prevent deportation) and to hand them billions of dollars in welfare, food stamps, aid to dependent children, education and, of course, free meals at school — all paid for by the middle class.

It’s a two-for-one. This is how you create a permanent, loyal Democratic voter bloc at the same time you bankrupt the middle class.

As I explain in my new book The Murder of the Middle Class, this is a purposeful plan right out of the Richard Cloward-Frances Fox Piven playbook. How do I know? I was Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. We learned this plan at Columbia. My classmates vowed to someday put it into effect to overwhelm the system, collapse capitalism, crash the U.S. economy and force America to its knees.

From that position of crisis, weakness and panic, they vowed to “fundamentally change the country.” Recognize the plan? It’s happening right now.

So how do we fight back? Obama and his socialist cabal are liars, frauds and hypocrites. Yes, they want to help the poor and downtrodden — but only with your money.

Yes, they want to house the world’s homeless — but only in your home.

Yes, they want to let in the world’s poverty-stricken immigrants — but only into your backyard.

None of this “dirty work” ever touches their mansions, yachts, private jets, private schools or, God forbid, their precious children.

Last I checked, Sasha and Malia Obama won’t go to school next to shoeless illegal immigrants with lice, scabies and tuberculosis. Last I checked, illegals with gang tattoos from head to toe won’t be mugging old ladies or dealing crack in front of the Georgetown mansions of lobbyists, lawyers and politicians like Hillary Clinton.

Or maybe they will. 

Bringing this flood of illegal children (have you noticed how with liberals it’s always “we’re doing it for the children?”) into nice, middle-class communities to destroy their neighborhoods, schools and budgets is all part of Obama’s plan to overwhelm the system and murder the middle class.

It’s time we counter these liberal, elite hypocrites. First, we must stand and fight to the last breath. The answer is so simple: Send them back.

Then take action to secure our border.

The last thing any Republican should do now is support any form of amnesty. Are we that stupid? That message would result in millions more poverty-stricken illegals coming.

But in the meantime, let’s demand these hordes of illegal immigrants — many carry disease; many, if not most, are not “innocent minors” but are tattooed gangbangers, hardened criminals, drug dealers and murderers — be housed in Beverly Hills, or the Upper East Side of Manhattan, or fashionable Georgetown.

Georgetown is the part of Washington, D.C., where all the liberal, elitist hypocrite politicians live. If Obama and his socialist cabal want illegals in this country, let them step over them as they get into their limos or shop for their $2,500 dresses.

But don’t stop there. Let’s send them to Beverly Hills, Brentwood, the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Scarsdale, Great Neck, Malibu, Westwood, Brentwood, Palo Alto, Napa, Atherton, Menlo Park, Carmel –and don’t forget the ritziest neighborhoods in Boston and Chicago.

These rich enclaves have the money and resources, so let Obama’s socialist cabal live among the poor, huddled masses.

Give them jobs at the Ralph Lauren store on Rodeo Drive, or the Armani store on Madison Avenue, or at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Why doesn’t Rachel Maddow hire one of them as the booker for her MSNBC show?

Since Obama is so quick to sue American companies for daring to demand English be spoken at the office, Michelle Obama can hire a few to work in key positions at the White House. Perhaps they can speak Spanish only, while directing national security?

Perhaps Clinton can get one of these illegals a $600,000 minimal-work job at NBC, like she got her daughter Chelsea.

Why are we sending this needy horde of illegal immigrants to struggling middle-class neighborhoods? Why are they being sent only to red States? Because this is all part of Obama’s purposeful plan to destroy America.

Let’s turn the tables. Let’s bus them to the elite, snobby liberal towns. If you liberals like illegals so much, you take care of them.

While we’re at it, let’s demand they go to school at elite private schools. Start with Sidwell Friends School, where Sasha and Malia attend school. Let’s see how Michelle Obama reacts when her precious daughters come home with lice, or cough with TB, or party with tattooed gangbangers from El Salvador.

There’s the ticket. It’s time to turn the tables. Let the wealthy liberals who support Obama and weep for illegal immigrants practice what they preach. It’s time to send the illegal crisis to the doors of Beverly Hills and Georgetown.

That’s how you turn around the murder of the middle class and take back our country.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I hope you’ll read my newly released book, The Murder of the Middle Class. It’s available at any bookstore, Costco or Sam’s Club. Or, of course, you can order it at right now. See you next week. God bless America.

What Is The Murder Of The Middle Class?

The greatest nation in world history is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated murder of the middle class. This is no accident, mistake or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Security Agency, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

Lies and fraud are at the center of this murder of the middle class. Obama and various big-government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their weapon of mass distraction.

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured,” when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming, when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children,” when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force, depress middle-class wages for generations to come, create 12 million future Democratic voters and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle-class taxpayers to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democratic Party.

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality,” when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates: small business and the middle class.

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions of dollars back to Democratic politicians.

They claim bailing out General Motors was to “save jobs,” when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions of dollars to Democratic politicians.

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy,” when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year — while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle-class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

It’s always about lying to cover up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim: “It’s all OK. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away; there’s nothing to see here.”

It’s not OK. I was just notified by my health insurance company that my family’s policy has been canceled. When Obama was elected, my bill was $500 per month. Today, it’s $1,700 per month. But now, my family will have no insurance at all because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle-class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. How about yours? Gas prices have doubled since Obama became President. How can middle-class people survive without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

All this occurs while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The gross domestic product for the first quarter was negative 2.9 percent — one of the worst showings in history — six years after Obama’s trillion-dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

No, things are not all right. Here are just a few of the facts that support that the middle class is being murdered:

  • China is set to pass America as the world’s No. 1 economy based on consumer spending this year. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the No. 1 economy in the world.
  • For the first time in history, America’s middle class isn’t No. 1 in the world. Canada’s middle class has passed us.
  • For the first time in American history, more businesses are closing each day than starting up.
  • There are now 70 percent more Americans collecting entitlement checks than working in the private sector (148 million “takers” versus 86 million “makers”), a fact provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • The average full-time male employee now earns less (adjusted for inflation) than 40 years ago.
  • 20 percent of U.S. families don’t have a single member who is employed.
  • Record numbers of Americans are not in the workforce (more than 92 million).
  • The number of working-age Americans without a job increased by about 10 million in Obama’s first five years as President. That means each and every year of Obama’s Presidency, 2 million more Americans disappeared from the workforce.
  • America’s second largest employer is a temp agency.
  • 70 percent of Americans believe we are still in the middle of the economic crisis or that the worst is yet to come. And they are correct.

There is no doubt the great American middle class is being murdered. We must have the courage to save the middle class and preserve the American dream. This fight is just getting started. Get informed and join the battle.

I hope you’ll read my recently released book, The Murder of the Middle Class. It’s available at any bookstore; or, of course, you can order at today.

See you next week. God bless America and save us from the murder of the middle class.

A Conservative Response To Maureen Dowd Of The New York Times

My new book, The Murder of the Middle Class launches this Monday, July 14, across America. I’ve spent the past year piecing together the most evil conspiracy in world history. It’s about how America, the greatest Nation in world history, is being destroyed from within, by the purposeful “murder of the middle class.” It is not happening by accident, mistake or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is a widespread criminal conspiracy that even the Mafia could not imagine. This is a conspiracy that the robber barons could not imagine. This is a conspiracy that Bernie Madoff could not imagine. This makes the conspiracy to murder John F. Kennedy look amateur by comparison. I name the names involved, including the Federal Reserve, famous billionaires, the captains of big business and RINO Republicans.

So it was a shock to see that New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, known as “The Queen of Liberalism” and the great defender of Barack Obama, must have been reading an advance copy of my book. In her July 4 column in The New York Times, she made every point in my book about “the murder of the middle class.” She simply forgot to point out who the perpetrator is.

Nonetheless, thank you, Ms. Dowd. You just accomplished something those of us on the right have warned about for decades. Pay attention, America. It’s now fact. Dowd just made our case. She proved in her July 4 column that liberals are idiots, fools and delusional. Even more importantly, Dowd proved that liberals are dangerous to America’s survival.

Dowd’s column was a masterpiece of liberal thought. It should be framed on every sane American’s wall and included in every U.S. history book for the rest of time. It should serve as a warning of what happens when liberals are in charge. Even Dowd, the queen of liberalism, openly admitted that America goes to hell.

Can you imagine buying a beautiful home, in a wonderful, safe neighborhood, with great schools and then — through a combination of incompetence, ignorance, arrogance and purposeful intent — turning that home into a garbage-ridden, graffiti-covered crack house? In short order, the entire neighborhood goes to hell. The good people escape. Drug dealers and welfare addicts move in. The streets become dangerous. The schools become cesspools of crime, drugs, gangs and teen pregnancy. And then the landlord, who allowed this to happen (by being the worst homeowner on the planet), has the nerve to complain about how the neighborhood has gone downhill. Can you imagine the nerve?

Well that was Dowd’s New York Times column on July 4. Dowd admits America has become a disaster, a country in shambles, a country in decline. She says we are “scared of our own shadow.” Collapsing. Crumbling. Defeated. We’ve lost our confidence. We’ve lost our swagger. No more hope about the future. A country no longer “exceptional.”

This is the picture she paints, not me.

Bravo, Maureen. It’s all true. It just happens to be the exact same picture we conservatives have been warning about and predicting since Obama took office. This, from a woman who undoubtedly has Obama ornaments hanging from her Christmas tree and probably keeps a shrine to him in her home. This, from a woman who writes for The New York Times, the official propaganda outlet of the Obama dictatorship. Even that woman recognizes what America has become under Obama. A disaster. A crumbling, mumbling shadow of its former self. Obama has done exactly what he promised. He’s fundamentally changed America.

Dowd asks, “[A]re we losers who have soured our DNA?” She worries if we’re “forever smaller, stingier, dumber, less ambitious, more cynical. Have we lost control of our not-so-manifest destiny?” Yes, Maureen, some of us are dumber.

Dowd supported Obama through thick and thin. She campaigned for him. She defended his every socialist policy — the same socialist big government policies that turned Detroit into a Third World hellhole in the middle of America. The same socialist policies that destroyed the economies of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and even France (where the Labour Minister last year admitted, “France is totally bankrupt”).

These places are all run with the same exact policies that Obama has implemented in America. Dowd has defended these same policies in every column for six long years. Now she looks out at the wreckage, reports on the concrete results, but doesn’t notice who is to blame.

Just to be sure we are on the same page and that Dowd can’t wiggle out of this one, these policies are: big spending, big taxes, big regulations, big debt and big government. Those are the “big five” that murder the middle class all over the world. Add in free healthcare and income redistribution. They are all policies staunchly supported by Dowd, Obama and leftists worldwide.

Let me give Dowd credit. In her July 4 column, she perfectly describes the unimaginable results of six years of relentless spending, taxing, regulating, adding to the debt, growing government, Internal Revenue Service attacks, income redistributing and free healthcare by Obama. She describes the exact damage to our economy and psyche. I couldn’t have done it better myself.

The problem is, Ms. Dowd, you are the problem — you, Obama and your whole leftist cabal. It’s obvious you’re not completely blind, because you’ve correctly laid out the tragic results. You just conveniently forgot who was in charge when all this happened. Twice.

Yes, it has happened twice. And it is not a coincidence. Two extreme radical leftists caused the same misery and malaise in America — twice. Everything Dowd describes happened first under Jimmy Carter and now is happening under Obama.

Ironically, Maureen, you nailed it. You hit the bull’s-eye. You are describing what happens to America every time liberals, progressives or socialists (whatever you’re calling them nowadays) take charge. You forgot to mention that the first time (under Carter) Republican Ronald Reagan came along and saved America from ruin.

Your column also described exactly what happened to Detroit with Democrats in charge for more than 50 straight years. But with no Reagan riding to the rescue, there is no hope for Detroit. It is a “lost city,” a Third World hellhole in the middle of America.

Your column also described what happened to New York City with liberals like Abe Beame and David Dinkins in charge: economic ruin and out-of-control lawlessness.

Then Republican Rudy Giuliani came along and saved New York from ruin.

You are describing what happened to all the European socialist states, along with Cuba and Venezuela. Those people lost their swagger and hope for the future, too. Those people lost their jobs and gross domestic product. They lost their hope because of “fundamental change.” In Venezuela, they even lost their toilet paper!

Don’t laugh. In Detroit thousands of residents just lost something even worse: their water.

Are you sensing a pattern? This is always what happens with leftists and socialists in charge.

This is an open plea to Dowd and her leftist friends at The New York Times: It is you, and those who think like you, who have turned our beautiful home (America) into a dangerous, drug-infested, poverty-ridden slum filled with hopeless, helpless, government-addicted addicts. Before you complain about it, you might want to look in the mirror — or watch a 2008 Obama speech where he promises all the very policies that have led to this disaster.

But ironically, Dowd just did us all a big favor. “The Queen of Liberalism” just documented the destruction of America by liberal policies.

Dowd just proved in one column what I, and conservatives like me, have been warning about for 30 years: Liberals are insane and dangerous to our very survival.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I hope you’ll read my book, The Murder of the Middle Class. It’s available at any bookstore starting on Monday, or of course you can pre-order at today. Inside you’ll find more than just criticism of Obama and his socialist cabal.

My book contains 400 pages of: solutions to save America, the middle class and the U.S. economy; unique ideas for how to create jobs by the millions; and branding campaigns the Republican Party can use to fight fire with fire, win elections, win back the Senate and Presidency in 2014 and 2016 and to successfully brand the Democratic Party as “the party of economic suicide.” This is a roadmap for taking back our country.

See you next week. God bless America and save us from the murder of the middle class.

How Donald Trump Can Save America With $50 Million Reward

Hi I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. It’s the Fourth of July. Happy Independence Day. Do you really want freedom from tyrants like Barack Obama? Well then, I have a hero for you; his name is Donald Trump.

Trump is a brilliant guy. I have a way for him to end Obama’s destruction of capitalism and the U.S. economy and save America at the same time. Are you listening, Donald?

“The Donald” is the world’s king of branding and promotion. But he’s more than a billionaire businessman and branding genius. He’s a patriot who loves his country and clearly sees that Obama is ruining it.

Like me, Trump is one of the loudest, boldest and most outspoken public critics of this President.

Like me, I’m certain Trump understands the terrible decline and disaster of the U.S. economy under Obama is no mistake. It’s a purposeful plan by a radical Marxist tyrant who has always hated America and capitalism — starting in his college days at Columbia University.

What mistake? Obama is the greatest spender in the history of America (and the world).

Obama is the greatest debt creator in the history of America.

Obama has imposed more regulations than any President in history. And Obama is the greatest taxer in the history of America. Obamacare alone is the largest tax increase ever.

But worse, Obama has tried to impose 442 new taxes that were blocked by a Republican Congress.

If he were allowed to get his way, Obama would have turned America into Cuba, Venezuela, East Germany or the old Soviet Union. So the failure of the economy is no mistake. There is a plan. It’s working.

Trump must understand time is running out for America. Obama has two years left to finish the job. So how do we stop Obama?

That’s where Trump comes in. It’s time for Trump to play hero. Trump has billions of dollars. To him, $50 million is a pittance. It’s like pulling $50 from my wallet. It’s time for Trump to put on his white cowboy hat and become the hero who saves our country.

I’m calling on Trump to offer a $50 million reward to any Internal Revenue Service employee (or employees) who comes forward with information leading to the impeachment of Obama or the conviction of his top White House aides. The IRS scandal is the smoking gun. My gut instincts say that the orders to target, persecute, intimidate and destroy critics of the President came directly from the Obama White House.

Obama knew. He was in the middle of the conspiracy. Obama was there when the game plan was devised. Can he be directly tied to it? Probably not. I’m betting nothing was ever in writing. But his top aides gave the orders to IRS officials. That’s precisely why the emails were destroyed.

How do I know? Because the “dog ate my homework” excuse by the IRS is so pathetic and embarrassing, it proves that those emails held direct evidence of a White House conspiracy. Why else would smart and important people tell such a pathetic lie? Because the alternative is impeachment and prison. Looking like a fool, idiot or liar is OK compared to wearing prison stripes for five or 10 years.

I’m betting this Obama/IRS criminal conspiracy was coordinated by his top aides (Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel). John Gotti could not have thought up a more cunning, vicious crime to punish and intimidate his enemies. Everyone involved must go to prison.

Well, let’s test my gut instincts. The IRS scandal is the best shot we have to impeach Obama, destroy his Presidency once and for all and put a stop to his conspiracy to destroy America, capitalism, American exceptionalism, the U.S. Constitution and Judeo-Christian values.

It’s time to play hardball. This isn’t badminton at the country club. The future of America is at stake. Our children’s future is at stake. This has to end… and end now.

The IRS scandal is the key. Using the IRS to go after political opponents sunk President Richard Nixon. It was the second Article of Impeachment.

This Obama IRS scandal is far worse. Obama used the IRS to go after Christian ministers, pro-Israel groups , pro-Constitution groups, veteran groups, conservative groups, Tea Party groups, cancer victims and leading media critics like me. Now it turns out IRS official Lois Lerner was targeting a GOP U.S. Senator. All of this happened while the head of the IRS was meeting at the Obama White House more than any other cabinet secretary — and while the head of the IRS employees union was meeting with Obama personally the night before the targeting began.

But this goes far beyond targeting enemies and trying to silence free speech. Obama had lost in the biggest landslide in modern history in 2010. The Tea Party groups had to be stopped. So Obama used the IRS to steal the 2012 election. Then he appointed big Obama donors to head the IRS and lead the investigation into the scandal.

Then the IRS made sure thousands of emails (the key evidence) were destroyed. This is the grandest boldest conspiracy in world history.

It’s also the greatest chance to destroy the Obama Presidency, impeach Obama and convict his top aides of criminal conspiracy against the American people. Or don’t you remember how many of Nixon’s top aides went to prison? What they did is child’s play compared to this IRS scandal.

Only Trump can make this happen with his money, his mouth and his celebrity. Offer $50 million. Make the offer so grand that it gets everyone’s attention.

Obama can’t control or spin this one. Fifty million dollars will loosen sealed lips. Even Lerner might talk for $50 million. It’s worth a few years in jail to collect $50 million. That’s enough money to get all the rats on the IRS ship to start talking. As they come forward to collect their millions, Obama is history. He will go down as the dirtiest President in history. A man who tried to kill free speech. A man who stole the {residency in order to finish the job of destroying the greatest Nation in world history.

Think I’m wrong? Let’s bet $50 million. Let’s see who comes forward. I’m betting the floodgates open. I’m betting this is the end of Obama Presidency.

Now it’s time for “The Donald” to get to work. Donald, here’s your chance to save America. Good luck and God bless.

Oh, and if Trump wants some partners in the deal, I have a funny feeling Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn are available.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Wouldn’t Obama’s impeachment and his top aides going to prison be a great gift on Independence Day? God bless America.

Mississippi GOP Primary Proves We Are Rome

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

Are we Rome? Is Nero fiddling while Rome burns? Is Thad Cochran’s close victory in Mississippi symbolic of a modern-day Nero?

Have you seen the latest economic figures? The U.S. economy is in free fall.

We are headed for economic Armageddon. Our economy is shrinking at an alarming rate. We may already be in a Barack Obama Great Depression. At the root of all of it are debt and spending. Both are expanding at a record-setting pace.

Yet establishment D.C. politicians — even GOP politicians like Cochran — save their jobs by promising more Federal spending, more welfare, more food stamps, more government contracts and loans. All this bribery is offered so a desperate, 76-year-old career politician can keep his job until the day he dies.

We have met the enemy, and it is us. It’s Washington DC. It’s the establishment saving their lifelong jobs by spending taxpayer money, putting us all into debt, and destroying our economy and our children’s future. One old Mississippi career politician hanging on for his fourth decade in the U.S. Senate is Exhibit A of the decline and destruction of America.

This race had special importance to me because I just returned from “ground zero.” I spent days barnstorming the State of Mississippi, speaking at Tea Party Express rallies for Chris McDaniel. I’m proud to now call Chris a friend.

Tea Party and conservative groups should hold their heads high. A political newcomer came within a whisker of pulling off one of the greatest upsets in modern political history against powerful elitist and D.C. special interest groups. We tried to save America from obscene and unsustainable spending. But the voters of Mississippi (by the slimmest of margins) chose fantasyland. They chose to keep the checks coming at all costs — even if there’s no money left to give. They chose the continued looting and eventual bankruptcy of America.

The rallies that I witnessed across Mississippi are the perfect “model” for the looting of America. The stark contract in the rallies for McDaniel and Cochrane pinpoint what is happening to America: elections are being won by the government class offering bribery with taxpayer money. Desperate politicians pull out razor-thin victories only by pandering to those benefitting from government jobs, checks, loans or grants.

I spent three days crisscrossing the State for McDaniel. I spoke in places like Tupelo, Biloxi and Pearl. Everywhere the Tea Party Express went we met loud, wild, enthusiastic crowds. But what is most important is who was in those crowds: average, middle-class Americans. I met homemakers, police officers, firefighters, small-business owners, veterans and taxpayers. These are the citizens who made America great.

As I was leaving Mississippi, I happened to stumble onto a Cochran rally at the Biloxi airport. It was sparsely attended. Who were the few attendees? Political operatives, GOP establishment politicians and government employees. Everyone at Cochran’s rally made a living off either politics or government (or both). No one was there because he wanted to be there. Cochran’s supporters were paid to be there. Their jobs or careers depended on his staying in power.

This is what the establishment GOP has become. How sad. Just like Democrats, their entire lives and careers are based on fleecing taxpayers and common citizens to pay for their government jobs, political jobs or their companies that are funded by government contracts.

Then there was the last-second plea by Cochran to save his six-term Senate career. This supposedly conservative Republican appealed to black Democrats and union members to cross over to vote in the GOP primary. He reminded them of the Federal money he has brought to Mississippi for four decades.

Cochran also campaigned at military bases and plants manufacturing military equipment to remind voters that only he can “bring home the bacon.” His TV ads actually listed the Federal money he’s brought back to each specific Mississippi company.

Sound familiar? Appealing to Democrats who want bigger government and more checks — isn’t that what career Democrat politicians do? Appealing to union members and government employees — isn’t that what career Democrat politicians do? And outspending your opponent by about 3 to 1 with funds donated by corporate interests and the Chamber of Commerce — isn’t that called buying the election? Is this what the Founding Fathers wanted for America?

This is the perfect “model” for why America is in decline. One candidate (McDaniel) stood for the middle class, small business, the citizens. Yet he lost to a career politician who has spent four decades in corrupt Washington, D.C., where he learned to buy votes by promising more Federal spending, more entitlement checks and more crony capitalism.

It’s amazing and sad to note that this strategy of crony capitalism and bribery still wins elections while the country is insolvent, with more than $100 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities.

Perhaps Hillary Clinton was right. It does take a village to succeed. In this case it took an entire city: Washington, D.C. It took the power of government and millions of dollars in big business and special interest spending to ensure a career politician can stay in office until he dies.

The problem for the Thad Cochrans of the political world is that this strategy is in its final days. The country is broke and living on Fed printing of fake dollars. What will the career politicians do when the spigot runs dry?

The Cochran victory brings up the question: Are we Rome?

The Greatest Scam Artist In History

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. The greatest scam artist in history has scammed America — again. A terrorist mastermind gets Miranda rights on American soil, while a U.S. Marine hero has no rights in Mexico. That’s par for the course in Barack Obama’s America.

Look around. America is in free fall. The Internal Revenue Service scandal is exploding: The IRS says “the dog ate Lois Lerner’s emails.” The very evidence that could lead to the impeachment of the President has disappeared into cyberspace. At the same moment, Obama is still taking heat for releasing five Jihadist mass murderers in a swap for a deserter. At the same moment, Iraq is crumbling. Everything we fought for, the trillion dollars we spent “liberating” Iraq, the many brave men who died… it’s all being erased as Iraq falls to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Soon, Baghdad will fall; the writing is already on the wall. This is the greatest foreign policy embarrassment in U.S. history. Then there’s the Veterans Affairs scandal. Under Obama’s leadership, the Nation is in crisis and dramatic decline.

So what does the greatest scam artist to ever occupy the White House do? He pulls out the WMD (weapons of mass distraction). He “wags the dog” to distract the masses. He gives permission for U.S. special forces to capture the architect of Benghazi — a terrorist hiding in plain sight for the past 20 months. Presto. The Kool-Aid drinking mainstream media call Obama “a hero.” Amazing. No one can be this dumb, can he?

But the scam is much deeper than it appears. The capture of Benghazi terrorist mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala isn’t just a cover-up for the PR mess Obama is in. The capture itself is the biggest scam of all.

First, we let this Benghazi butcher enjoy life in plain view for 20 months. Suddenly, Obama decides the time is right to capture him — right at the exact moment Obama needed to change the headlines. Pure bread and circuses. I’m surprised he didn’t just call for the start of the “Hunger Games.”

But the second part of Obama’s scam is far more dastardly. Obama is sending the terrorist mastermind to the U.S. instead of Guantanamo. He will be read his Miranda rights, like any other American citizen innocent until proven guilty. Why? Guantanamo was built for exactly this kind of unique situation, to house “the worst of the worst” enemy combatants and to interrogate them without the need for Miranda rights.

This scam was all planned out for months — 20 months, to be exact. Obama wanted the perfect timing — to hide a country in disarray and decline. And he wanted the perfect circumstances — the man with the knowledge of what happened at Benghazi protected by Miranda.

Abu Khattala is the definition of a “high-value target.” He can put Obama’s fingerprints at the scene of the crime. He can testify that Benghazi was a terrorist attack from Day One, that no protest of a movie was ever involved. He can testify that his terrorists used weapons supplied to Libyan rebels by the Obama Administration to kill our own brave men. He can testify that even the terrorists were shocked that Obama never sent a rescue mission. He can say: “We all expected to die on a suicide mission, but your President was too weak to fight back. Because of Obama, this was a great victory; and we lived to brag about it.”

So how do you shut up the terrorist mastermind? You read him his Miranda rights. You tell him he has the right to “lawyer up.” You protect him from enhanced interrogation. On American soil we can’t touch him. No Jack Bauer-style creative interrogation. No loud music. No threats to his family. No nothing. Here it’s just nice questions asked by polite FBI agents who could lose their pensions if they don’t mind their manners.

Here in America a high-profile trial like this will take years to happen — two, or three, or four years. Just enough time that Obama is safely out of office. So even if the terrorist talks at trial, which is unlikely, no one will hear about it until Obama is enjoying life as a billionaire author and global speaker at his Hawaii estate.

This is how you silence a dangerous witness for years. This is how you keep him from ever disclosing the secrets that can bring you down. You bring him to America and give him a team of lawyers. You can bet Obama’s top enforcer, Attorney General Eric Holder, will make sure Abu Khattala has an O.J. Simpson-like “dream team.” Game, set, match. The terrorist provides cover for Obama. His capture makes Obama look good. But he’s guaranteed to never talk.

Now compare this situation with our hero Marine being tortured in a Mexican prison. Sgt Andrew Tahmoorisi has been given no Miranda rights. He made a wrong turn at the border and wound up shackled at four points to a bed, while Mexican guards kicked him in the ribs. Then he was denied food and water. Our hero Marine has no rights… for the crime of bad driving. Yet a mass-murdering terrorist mastermind is protected by Miranda rights on American soil.

It’s all going bad, folks.

Obama plays chess at a higher level. The GOP is led by weak-willed cowards and idiots. The Republican leadership is playing checkers… without a board. The greatest scam artist in the history of the White House wins another round.

And the death of America continues unabated.

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

How Mexico Defeated GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. U.S. Congress Majority Leader Eric Cantor just lost in perhaps the biggest upset in the history of politics in his country. In D.C. they don’t understand what just happened. Well, I’ll tell you what happened.

I’ve written about the plight of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. He’s being falsely imprisoned by our “friend” and neighbor, Mexico. He’s been mistreated, beaten and, some would say, tortured. Isn’t it time President Barack Obama did something? Isn’t it time for GOP leaders to demand action?

What does this have to do with Cantor’s stunning defeat? Everything. The people who represent us in Washington, D.C., are off the grid. They are tone-deaf. They don’t care about what “we the people” care about. Cantor probably doesn’t even know about our hero Marine stuck in a Mexican prison. And that’s the problem. Our leaders are out of touch with the people — and with reality.

Separate from the plight of our hero Marine in Mexico, we have an invasion going on right now on the Mexican border.

Our borders are no longer enforced. Thousands of illegals are pouring over the border, and they aren’t even bothering to hide from police or Border Patrol. They are walking into America in plain sight and searching for police. They are thrilled to surrender to authorities because they have all heard the news: Obama has created de facto amnesty.

Obama and Holder are ignoring the law of this country. They have spread the word: “Bring your children, cross the border, we’ll feed you, house you, and we’ll provide you with civil rights lawyers at taxpayer expense. And you can stay indefinitely.”

So they’re coming by the thousands — from Mexico and Central America. They are young, poor and uneducated. They will cost billions of dollars to house; to feed; to provide entitlements, healthcare and public education for; and, in many cases, in the cost of police, courts and prison. America is already bankrupt and more than $17 trillion in debt. This is the tipping point.

And it’s no mistake, accident or coincidence. Obama never has to face voters again. He is out of control. He is hell-bent on the destruction of America — and the Republican Party — in his remaining time in office.

Yet moderate, establishment Republicans in Washington, D.C., say nothing. Cantor said nothing. This is a purposeful plan by Obama to overwhelm the system — to flood America with poor, dependent illegal immigrants. This is how you flood the country with future Democratic voters. Keep in mind where the government is dumping them: Arizona and Texas.

This is a purposeful plan to punish GOP Governors and turn red States into blue States.

This is an invasion. This is criminal. The President refuses to secure the border. He refuses to send back criminals. He empties our prisons to purposely dump illegal immigrant felons back on the streets (36,000 last month, to be exact).

He spends your taxpayer money on lawyers for illegals. He gives them sanctuary against the laws of America. He spends your taxpayer money to run advertising campaigns in Mexico to tell illegals in America they should request food stamps.

He orders the Internal Revenue Service to target and persecute GOP donors and conservative critics, but to look the other way while the same IRS pays $4 billion per year in “earned income tax credits” to illegal immigrants who paid no taxes.

This is the final destruction of America. Still, Cantor and his clueless moderate establishment Republican leaders in D.C. said nothing and did nothing.

Now, add in our hero Marine rotting in a Mexican prison for no good reason for two months (and counting). Yet Cantor said nothing and did nothing.

So at this very moment — with our borders under attack, with a wave of illegals invading America to overwhelm the system, with Obama emptying the prisons of foreign felons, with Mexico falsely imprisoning and torturing a hero U.S. Marine — what do Cantor and the GOP do? They say they support immigration reform and want to rush it through Congress before the November election.

Folks, this is insanity: first, because it’s time to stop rushing passage of controversial bills before anyone has read them.

Didn’t we try this with Obamacare? Didn’t we hear that if we liked our insurance we could keep it? Didn’t we hear we could keep our doctors? Didn’t we hear our health insurance premiums would go down? All lies. Complete fraud. Now, Republicans want to rush through a bill their own base does not support before reading the details? Madness.

But worse, any idiot knows that the GOP stands a great chance of winning big in November. Why would a GOP leader want to ruin that by upsetting his base? Why would you thumb your nose at your best customers? Why would you ignore what your most loyal voters are telling you? Madness.

There’s dumb, but then there’s dumber. Cantor was both dumb and dumber. If the GOP wins big in November, it will be in a position to dictate terms of surrender to Obama over the issue of immigration reform. Right now, the GOP is at a big disadvantage. Come next January (only a few months away), the GOP will be sitting pretty. Why would anyone with a brain try to push through an immigration bill now in the waning days of a Congress where you are at a disadvantage? Madness.

No one can be this dumb or tone-deaf.

I haven’t even gotten to the most important point. At this moment in time — with Mexico laughing in our face, imprisoning and torturing our hero Marine, and with our border being overrun — who in his right mind would even consider amnesty for millions of people already here illegally? Why would we even think of rewarding a country (Mexico) that is laughing in our face? It is sending its poor, jobless citizens to us — so we can pay the welfare, medical, education and prison bills it should be paying. Next, like Fidel Castro, Mexico will empty its prisons to send us its worst criminals.

Mexico is a desperately poor country. They are trying to stick all their bills and responsibilities on American taxpayers.

Anyone not blind can see what’s coming. Obama has erased the border. He’s obliterated the law. He’s bankrupting the economy. In the bargain he’s enriching his favorite donors: lawyers. He’s overwhelming the system with spending and debt. The plan is accelerating.

This is the invasion of America. This is the bankruptcy of our economy. This is the end of the GOP. Cantor, are you blind, deaf and dumb? GOP leaders like Cantor are either complete idiots, cowards afraid of their own shadow or traitors complicit in the destruction of America.

So wonder no more about the stunning defeat of Cantor. I say good riddance. Now, it’s time to throw out the rest of the tone-deaf fools in Washington, D.C.

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

Obama Makes Worst Trade Since American Indians Sold Manhattan For $24

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. President Barack Obama has done it again! He’s found an unimaginable way to both damage and embarrass America at the same time.

Remember how the American Indians gave up Manhattan? The Indians were robbed. They were conned into selling Manhattan for $24 of trinkets in 1626.

That was the worst trade in history. Until now.

Obama’s trade for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl now tops the infamous list of “Worst Trades in History.”

In the sports world there have been many legendary bad trades. Julius Irving. Kobe Bryant. Nolan Ryan. Hershel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for an entire team of players and draft picks that led to three Super Bowl victories for the Dallas Cowboys.

But the worst sports trade ever was the Red Sox selling Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The Red Sox didn’t win another title for 86 years. The Yankees became the greatest American sports franchise in history. They won seven World Championships with Babe Ruth.

It was called “The Curse of the Bambino.”

Executives got fired for those horrible one-sided trades. Teams were embarrassed. Legends were created. Billions of dollars of franchise value was created (and lost). But none of those trades led to danger, disaster or the potential death of thousands of Americans.

Obama takes the cake. He traded one obvious deserter for five of the most cunning, vicious mass murderers and America-haters in history. Mass murderers and friends of Osama bin Laden were freed by America.

What did we get? A traitor who purposely walked away from his base, searching for the enemy to surrender to:

And here’s the most bizarre and disconcerting thing of all. At the White House ceremony announcing the trade, Bergdahl’s father spoke in Arabic. It is reported the father converted to Islam.

That’s what we traded five mass murderers for? That’s what Obama broke the law for?

The trades of Manhattan and Babe Ruth are both looking pretty good by comparison.

Keep in mind those five sworn enemies of America — mass murderers all — haven’t even gotten back on the battlefield. Yet.

But when they do, remember they were set free by our own President, to rain hell down on our American hero soldiers. Remember they were set free by our own President to plot a new 9/11 that could kill thousands or even hundreds of thousands of Americans (think dirty bomb).

The world is shocked and horrified. America’s enemies are laughing and high-fiving. Our military is demoralized. Our economy is in free fall. Our dignity and legacy are in tatters. Our reputation across the globe is shattered. One man has destroyed the once-great America.

Why did Obama break the law to trade for one deserter? Why would he risk all hell breaking loose for one traitor who cost the lives of as many as 14 military heroes? Two reasons:

  • First, Obama was desperate to get the Veterans Affairs scandal out of the headlines. He had to change the topic away from neglect and fraud causing the death and suicide of American military vets under his leadership. How better to change the subject and erase the scandal involving abuse, neglect and even murder of military vets than by appearing to be a Commander in Chief rescuing an American military prisoner of war. Obama had delusions of grandeur, overnight going from bum to hero.
  • Second, my sources in military command positions tell me that the CIA reported to Obama that Bergdahl was about to go on global television to denounce America, call our military evil — and do it all in Arabic. Obama would have been humiliated. His narrative of being such a big victor over al-Qaida and the Taliban would have been destroyed in front of the whole world, live on global television.

So here was the perfect way to kill two birds with one stone. But it all backfired as word got out of the betrayal by this American soldier, the deaths of 14 of his military brothers searching for him, his father speaking in Arabic, the danger that the release of those mass murderers presents, Obama claiming we will “keep eyes on them” and then, within minutes, an official in the Mideast counteracting Obama’s words and reporting these mass murderers are free as jaybirds to roam Qatar for the next year — and then free to return to the battlefield.

Obama is either a complete fool; a reckless, naive idiot who doesn’t understand who he is negotiating with; or complicit in a crime against America. You decide. But either way, he broke the law by making the deal without informing Congress.

Forget the humiliation of selling Manhattan for $24. Forget “the Curse of the Bambino.” Forget all the humiliating trades in history. This one takes the cake. Babe Ruth is rolling over in his grave.

This curse won’t lose seven World Championships or three Super Bowls. This curse could cost America our international credibility and lead to more kidnappings of American soldiers and the deaths of hundreds or even thousands of deaths to Americans if these mass murderers are emboldened to create a new 9/11.

This is the “Curse of Barack Hussein Obama.” America may never recover.

Here’s What Obama Should Say To Mexico’s President

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Memorial Day is over, but we are reminded of the sacrifices of our military heroes by a high-profile story in the news right now. We have an explosive international incident developing over the false imprisonment of a U.S. Marine hero in Mexico. Remarkably, our President and Secretary of State have not even chosen to bring this issue up with Enrique Peña Nieto, the President of Mexico.

I believe the United States would have great leverage in this situation — if we had a real leader running this country. Unfortunately, we have the weak, feckless, neutered, bowing Barack Obama. Our President doesn’t understand American exceptionalism. Our fearful leader doesn’t believe in the greatness of our military. He certainly doesn’t understand what Donald Trump would call “the art of the deal.” It’s time to explain the situation to our southern neighbor. It’s time to make an offer he can’t refuse. This is the letter a real leader of the United States would send to the President of Mexico to rescue a true American hero and patriot, who is languishing in a filthy, dangerous Mexican jail under false pretenses.

Dear President Enrique Peña Nieto:

Greetings from the United States of America — you know, the great Nation just above your crime-ridden country, that has taken in millions of your citizens and spent hundreds of billions of dollars in welfare, food stamps, housing allowances, healthcare, education, police and prison costs, free meals at school, and income tax credits on your citizens here in our country illegally. I think you owe it to us to listen to what we have to say.

I write you today because you’re holding one of our citizens hostage in one of the hellholes that you call a federal prison. The citizen you are holding is my Marine. His name is Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. He is an American hero. During the four years he served in the U.S. Marines, he did two tours in Afghanistan. While on the battlefield, he saved the lives of eight Marines from the Taliban; and in a separate incident he saved a Marine from bleeding to death after that soldier lost both legs from an improvised explosive device explosion. This American hero is now languishing in your prison in Tijuana, Mexico.

What crime did he commit? Murder? Robbery? Kidnapping? Drug smuggling? No those are the things that happen to law-abiding citizens in your country every day. But Tahmooressi didn’t do any of those bad things. He accidentally drove across the border in his own vehicle with three legally owned guns. Yes, that’s his “crime.” Bad driving. This American hero entered your country because of poor signage leading to your border outside San Diego (possibly combined with confusion from his post-traumatic stress disorder).

As a result of that honest mistake, my Marine has been under constant death threat from Mexican drug gangs in your prison. Because you can’t control your own violent prisoners, my Marine has been isolated in a filthy prison cell, chained to his bed for weeks. This is called torture, and it is a violation of his civil (and human) rights.

I want to make sure you understand the gravity of this situation. Your Mexican citizens enter our country illegally, and we let them live and work here. Our citizens are kindhearted enough to oppose deportation of millions of your citizens for fear of breaking up their families. We hire your citizens and provide them with a better life than they ever had in Mexico. They send money home to Mexico that keeps your economy afloat. That money comes from our citizens and taxpayers. Even Mexican felons are treated better in our prisons and legal system than they are in your country. That’s why your citizens are willing to die to escape to our country.

Let’s also discuss your military. This U.S. Marine hero made a mistake wandering into your country. But your military has purposely wandered onto U.S. soil many times, which is a violation of U.S. laws. But we have chosen not to arrest your soldiers. We’ve given our neighbors the benefit of the doubt. Is this how you treat us in return?

Let’s review the direct military aid we’ve gifted to your country. Between 2008 and 2011, the Department of Defense gave $428.7 million worth of equipment to Mexican security forces, including planes, Black Hawk helicopters and scanners. Last year alone, we trained more than 3,000 Mexican troops. All this money came from U.S. taxpayers — like Tahmooressi’s parents.

My Marine was armed with three firearms because he has the Constitutional right to own and possess those firearms in the United States. I understand that your country does not have those same rights. That’s too bad for you and your citizens. I’ve noticed that even though you have disarmed your citizens, gun violence is out of control in Mexico. It’s strange how in your “gun-free” country, there are incredible numbers of gun murders. It appears that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens has not worked out very well for your disarmed citizens.

I understand that you have “issues” keeping your citizens from crossing over into our country and keeping drug lords from smuggling drugs into our country. Until now, we have never properly addressed these issues with you. I think that time has come. But we will deal with those issues at a later date. Right now, we have only one issue on the plate. Rest assured, the future of American-Mexican relations depend on the resolution of this issue.

I hope you will consider this a formal (but friendly) request, as one neighbor to another. As the Commander in Chief of Tahmooressi, I’m giving you until 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time tomorrow to return my Marine (along with his truck and weapons) to the U.S. border crossing in San Diego.

I will have the appropriate U.S. officials and military officers waiting there at precisely 5 p.m. to inspect the condition of my Marine and to report his physical and mental condition to me immediately. I expect him to be in perfect health.

If you choose to disregard my simple and reasonable “friendly” request, please be aware that I have already ordered the U.S. Marine Corps commandant at Camp Pendleton to have his 100,000 Marines “stand to” and ready to proceed into Mexico to retrieve my Marine. 

One way or another, my Marine is coming home — whether you send him home or we have to come get him. We leave no man behind. If we are forced to retrieve Tahmooressi at great effort and expense to the United States, we will also send you a bill for the $500 million or so we’ve spent on training and equipment for your military since 2008.

I’ll deal with the hundreds of billions of dollars we’ve spent on housing your citizens illegally in the United States at a future date — after this incident has been resolved to my satisfaction.

This is not a threat. This is a promise. I pray, for your sake and for your citizens’ safety, that you choose to do the right thing, neighbor. But know one thing: One way or another, my Marine is coming home by tomorrow evening at 5 p.m.



The President of the United States of America

P.S. Semper Fi.

That is the message a real American President would give to Mexico. Instead of bringing our Marine home from Mexico, Obama chose a photo op in Afghanistan on Memorial Day. That’s all you need to know about Obama. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America, and please bless that heroic U.S. Marine chained to his bed in that rotting hellhole of a Mexican prison. Let’s all pray for his swift release.

Bad News On Memorial Day: We Are All Veterans Now

Hi, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. It’s Memorial Day weekend and the national scandal and disgrace at the VA (Veterans Affairs) is the perfect example proving once and for all what a disaster Obamacare will be. We’re about to find out what it’s like to receive healthcare from the government. With Obamacare as the law of the land, we are all veterans now.

The VA scandal is proof positive that with government in charge of healthcare, it will bankrupt the entire country and countless Americans will die through incompetence, neglect, waiting lists and fraud. Just like our veterans have already experienced.

But this VA scandal is nothing new. Conservatives have warned about the dangers of government-run healthcare for many years, often using the VA as Exhibit A. My national bestselling book “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” was released in April 2013. Almost everything hitting the news about the VA today was already known way back then. Let me quote from my book:

Take the Veterans Administration. A federal appeals court has ruled the VA suffers from “unchecked incompetence.” That incompetence is killing our brave veterans. I bet you didn’t know 18 veterans commit suicide per day. Or that 85,000 vets are on waiting lists for care. Even a severely depressed vet can wait eight weeks to see a psychiatrist. Still want government to run your healthcare?

That’s direct from my book — written 18 months ago. So who couldn’t see this disaster coming? Government mismanagement. Substandard healthcare. Vets being treated horribly. Vets dying while waiting on long waiting lists. Vets committing suicide. We knew it years ago. This isn’t new news.

About the only thing we didn’t know back then was that there was outright criminal negligence that could lead to murder charges. We didn’t know government employees kept secret waiting lists to cover up the long delays — even though they knew patients had life threatening illnesses. That sounds like murder to me.

What a surprise! Conservatives like Sarah Palin and I screamed about “death panels” and “death by rationing” years ago. I predicted in the media long before today’s VA scandal that sick Americans would be committing suicide after dealing with government bureaucrats. I warned grandma might die if the same government that runs the Postal Service and the VA was put in charge of grandma’s cancer surgery.

We told you so… a long time ago. Government is a walking disaster. Government screws up everything it touches, while losing billions of dollars of other people’s money. How could putting government in charge of healthcare for 317 million Americans possibly work out?

Long before this new scandal, many of us pointed to the U.S. Postal Service. By law, there can be no competition, yet our Postal Service still manages to lose about $16 billion every year. No private sector company in history has ever managed a feat like this.

Or look at Amtrak. The government took over about 40 years ago and has lost about $40 billion since then. To this day, the taxpayers lose $32 every time a butt sits in an Amtrak seat.

All the wars in America’s history have cost about $7 trillion. Yet the war on poverty has cost $20 trillion and counting (adjusted for inflation). And poverty is still at all-time highs. What a massive failure and waste of taxpayer money.

The Federal Reserve has one main job: to protect the value of our dollar. Yet the dollar has lost 98 percent of its value since the Fed was founded.

The government couldn’t even run a whorehouse and make a profit! In my home state of Nevada (where prostitution is legal in some rural counties), the government took over a $100 million brothel and in one year drove it into bankruptcy. How can anyone lose money on sex? I told crowds at Tea Party rallies across the country, “If you can’t run a whorehouse and make a profit, get your damn hands off my healthcare!”

In case you think that’s an anomaly, look no further than Off Track Betting in New York. Yes, horse track gambling run by government also went bankrupt — even though the government skims their take off the top, before the bettors are paid. It’s impossible to go bankrupt with that scenario. Government found a way!

The same government that brought you failing gambling operations, failing brothels, failing post offices, failing trains and pretty much failing everything else is now in charge of your healthcare (as well as 17 percent of the U.S. economy).

The same government employees that brought us $17 trillion in national debt are in charge of healthcare, yet Obama promised Obamacare would save money and reduce the deficit. He also promised you could keep your health insurance if you liked it. And you could keep your doctor. And your insurance premiums would not go up.

Do you now understand what Obama has done to America’s healthcare system? Forget the threat of losing your insurance, or your doctor, or your medicine. The real threat with government in charge is losing your life! Either government’s incompetence or criminal behavior will kill you or, after dealing with the idiots that run the government, you’ll just kill yourself.

Happy Memorial Day. We’re all veterans now. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Happy holiday to all our veterans. God bless you. And God bless America.

Will Conservatives Soon Be Sent To Re-Education Camps?

Hello I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Silly me! I thought free speech was legal in America. I thought this was a republic with a Constitution guaranteeing our right to express ourselves? I didn’t know speaking your mind or expressing your opinions could result in the end of your career or the confiscation of your property.

Don’t look now, but it’s happening — if you’re a conservative.

It’s time to start getting nervous about expressing your views publicly — if you’re a conservative.

It’s time to worry about bans and witch hunts — if you’re a conservative.

What’s next? Re-education camps, where our fellow citizens are taken away to be brainwashed into changing their views or attitude? Don’t laugh; it’s already happening (see below).

Let me give a few examples of political correctness run amok. Interestingly, in each case I personally disagree with the views expressed, but vehemently disagree with the actions taken against those who expressed the views.

Let’s start with Michael Sam. On Saturday, he became the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. I say congratulations. I’m happy for Sam and personally thought he should have been drafted higher.

But have we traded one prejudice and civil rights violation for another? Many Americans were offended by Sam’s publicly caressing and kissing his boyfriend on national TV after his selection. If it’s called “progress” and a sign of “freedom” that two men can openly kiss on national TV, what is it called when someone offended by that same kiss is fined and suspended from his job? Is that progress? Is that free speech?

Ask Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones. He tweeted that he was disgusted and offended by the kiss. Jones was immediately fined and barred from team activities until he finishes “training for his recent comments made on social media.” Training? You mean like a “re-education camp?” You mean the NFL now believes it has the right to “train” its employees how to feel and think? Who determines which thinking is accepted?

Jones’ comments undoubtedly hurt Sam’s feelings and were offensive to gays. But that’s not the issue. We are allowed to be as “politically incorrect” as we want in America. We are protected by that silly little thing called the U.S. Constitution. Just because you disagree with someone’s opinion, does your employer have the right to suspend you from your job? Fine you? Can that same employer demand “thought training” to get your job back? This was tried with the Vietnamese “re-education camps.” Millions of people were imprisoned. More than 165,000 people died of abuse, starvation and torture.

This is a football team. Whether you are gay or straight should not matter. But neither should your views on two men kissing. All that should matter is how well you tackle in the open field.

I may not agree with what Jones said publicly, but I think the Miami Dolphins and the NFL should be sued for $100 million dollars for violation of the employee rights of Jones. He has every right to believe and say what he wants. Where is the public outrage? Where is the American Civil Liberties Union?

You are allowed to express your opinions in America, even if others find them heinous. Didn’t the ACLU defend the rights of a neo-Nazi group to march in Skokie, Ill. (a city with a large number of Jewish Holocaust survivors)? But in this case, all an NFL player did was say he was grossed out by two guys kissing. He wasn’t marching with Nazis. Yet the ACLU is surprisingly silent. Have the “thought police” successfully squashed dissent in this country?

If we allow employers like the Dolphins to censure, fine, suspend or fire a player for his thoughts or his political or religious beliefs, have we made progress? Or have we just switched sides? A different group is now in the closet. A different group is running the witch hunt.

It’s happening across America. Free speech is no longer tolerated by the left. Take the case of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She was supposed to receive an honorary degree from Brandeis University as a courageous campaigner for women’s rights. But her honorary degree was canceled because of student protests.

What were her critics angry about? She is a fierce critic of radical Islam and the way women are treated (and mistreated) in Muslim societies. So in response to her pointing out that dissent is suppressed in Muslim societies, her free speech was suppressed at Brandeis University.

Even CEOs of a private business are under attack. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich recently lost his job for making a donation to support Prop 8, the ballot initiative that barred same-sex marriage in California.

Once again, I happen to disagree with the opinion of this CEO. I personally think government should stay out of our boardrooms and bedrooms. I don’t believe government should be involved in “allowing” or not allowing marriage. It’s a personal and religious issue. But the issue here isn’t gay marriage, it’s freedom of speech. Should a CEO in America be fired for his personal belief that marriage is between a man and a woman? Worse, he wasn’t fired for leading the battle, but rather just for writing a check to a cause he believed in.

This isn’t supposed to happen in America. Where is the public outrage? Where is the ACLU? Is the free speech of a NFL player, or conservative CEO or courageous women’s rights crusader worth less than the free speech of a neo-Nazi group?

I think it’s great that being gay is now openly accepted in America. But does that mean that others should now be forced into the closet? Is that progress? Or is that trading one civil rights violation for another?

For the first time, I’m rooting for the ACLU to take a stand. If not, soon in Barack Obama’s America, Christians who oppose gay marriage or abortion will be forced to the back of the bus. CEOs will be forced out of their jobs for publicly opposing minimum wage increases. We’ll see signs openly displayed at businesses: “Republicans need not apply.”

Someday, the entire college education system will be taken over by radical leftists who refuse to hire a conservative educator or who ban conservative speakers at college graduation ceremonies. Oops! That’s already happened.

Where’s Alan Dershowitz when you need him?

Is Obama A Jinx Upon America?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does it really matter?

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

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

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

“You were there when I flunked out of college.

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

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

“You were there when I filed for bankruptcy.

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

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

“I’ve given this a lot of thought.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scroll down for Root’s video commentary.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hillary Clinton Is Radioactive

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But I know exactly how to brand Clinton.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We need good prosecutors.

Obama’s ‘Voter ID’ Scam Is Busted!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Official government-issued photo ID.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama, you are busted.

Obama At Columbia Story Explains Arrogant Attitude

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

I told you so.

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

Some things never change.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

White Voters Abandon Obama In Droves

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama is amazing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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