This Internal Revenue Service scandal must go far deeper than anyone understands at the moment. It must lead directly to the highest echelons of the Barack Obama White House. How do I know? Because the media is no longer defending Obama. Instead, they’ve switched to smearing his victims.
We now officially know America is being run by a gangster government. The real question is: Will the same Internal Revenue Service (or IRS-like bureaucracy) that targeted and persecuted conservatives, GOP donors, Tea Party groups, pro-Israel Jewish groups, Christian groups, pro-life groups and outspoken critics of the President (like me), now use Obamacare to deny us medical care?
The Internal Revenue Service admitted last week to targeting and intimidating conservative and Tea Party groups. But why? The answer: The IRS thought a quick apology and throwing a few low-level employees under the bus could nip it in the bud and make it all go away.
At this moment, despite the lies and distortions you hear from the Barack Obama-adoring mainstream media, we are experiencing an Obama Great Depression to rival anything we experienced in 1929. But the truth is being covered up by an ever-rising stock market (that is completely disconnected from the economy) and a country awash in “Obama money.”
Can you guess who is the deadliest crime family in our country’s history? If you guessed the Gambinos, you’re wrong. It’s the Obama crime family. The Obama gang is killing jobs, strangling business, intimidating opponents, making the energy industry “sleep with the fishes” and wiping out the middle class.
There were more self-made millionaires created during the Great Depression than in any other period in history. Crisis, decline and collapse often create great opportunity for those with vision, courage and a unique understanding of the situation. Here’s how you can capitalize on this same scenario today.
President Barack Obama and I were college classmates at Columbia University, class of ’83. I know all too well how mindlessly radical and in many cases, anti-American and hostile to capitalism the leftist students and faculty of that institution can be, and Obama was certainly no exception.
My father, David Root, was a blue-collar butcher. But he was wise beyond his economic status in life. His wisdom of 40 years ago is still timely and points to the reasons for our economic crisis and decline today. A recent incident sums up everything wrong with the U.S. economy under Barack Obama.
Imagine if George W. Bush (a Republican conservative) were presiding over 89 million able-bodied, working-age Americans who were not working, what would the media be saying? Would the media trumpet a “recovery?” Never in a million years.
The media was wrong in pronouncing the economic crisis over in Europe. They are wrong in America, too. The real economic indicators prove that the economic crisis caused by too much government, too much spending, too much taxing, too many government regulations and too many government employees with obscene salaries and pensions is just beginning.
