As most Americans are unaware, by federal law those serving in the nation’s military are suppose to receive a yearly pay raise in accordance with a formula utilized by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The House of Representatives traditionally uses whatever figure the BLS sends them to factor into any given Fiscal Year Budget to be sent to the Commander-in-Chief.
Yet as reported by the Alabama Media Group (The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times, the Mobile Press-Register) on Aug. 31, 2015, members of the Armed Forces will see a barely visible 1.3 percent increase in their proverbial pay envelopes starting New Year’s Day. But as reported by the Heritage Foundation on Aug. 7, 2015, Barack Obama has again decided to use an emergency loophole in the US Code to keep the lawful pay raise of 2.3 percent from the troops.

In what could be one of the most disastrous plans of the present dictatorship, Obama now wants credit reporting agencies to use utility and cell phone payments for scoring credit so that deadbeats and Illegal aliens (And I’m assuming illegal alien deadbeats) can get mortgages to buy houses or get loans.
The problem is if they use that criteria it could be very deceiving. Many of them have Obamaphones and receive HEAP to pay for their heat and electricity. Therefore, their credit records would get a big boost without them paying a dime out of their pocket, assuming Obama gets their checks to the utilities in time. Continue reading →
Under the Obama administration, the economic freedom factor shows that the United States continues the downward spiral in terms of economic freedom, employment, and that more Americans have entered into the lower middle class category as some have entered the poverty level, continues the fear of lower standards of living for most Americans, WNDreportedon Saturday. WND cited the Heritage Foundation who has analyzed various aspects of government policies and legislation since 1973, has analyzed the recent economic status in comparison from the year 2000 to present viewing a dismal outlook for the foreseeable future.
With the United States becoming more and more of a nation of the highly taxed and heavily regulated, it is losing its position as the world leader in entrepreneurial free enterprise and job creation. At such an alarming rate, limitation on economic freedom created by burdensome intervention of the government in the economic affairs of the nation, which hampers economic growth, diminishes prosperity, and reducing the nation’s standard of living.

“It’s now up to us to choose who we want to be over the next fifteen years, and for decades to come.”
– Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s recurring theme in his 2015 State of the Union Address alluding to the fact that America seems destined to be forever in debt
Disappointing at best…just more ‘doubling down’ on the same old tired rhetoric at the very lest, Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s sixth State of the Union Address was NOTHING but another reworked campaign speech touting the ‘supposed’ benefits of big government with NO mention whatsoever of muslim islamic terrorists…the biggest threat facing the entirety of the West today.
Bottom line…Obama simply did NOTHING but deliver a ‘see how wonderful I am’ speech, while misleading…while lying…to ‘We the People’ about how concerned he is about the middle class. And true to his being a man who likes to hear the sound of his own voice, Obama bloviated over and over how successful his actually failed policies are while only those on his side of the aisle stood to applaud. And if truth be told, what Obama did was NOTHING but run down a ‘bucket list’ of ‘to dos’ with a smattering of ‘having dones’ thrown in for good measure, and doing so all while knowing that the new Republican controlled Congress will rightfully kick his ‘bucket list’ to the curb…and knowing that he will veto any and everything that they do pass. In fact, he told them six times that he would. Continue reading →
“He gave the president exactly what he wanted, which is exactly what the Republican Party said we did not want.” – Rep. Tim Huelskamp R-Kansas
Some traitors are obvious…the names Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton just roll off the tongue…but sadly some traitors cause one to sigh in total disillusionment…and Speaker of the House John Boehner is one such man…or is he. Continue reading →
Listening to Obama and his allies in the Democrat-media complex, the government will fall apart if the sequester “cuts” actually take place.
Never mind that there are no real cuts, and the whole thing was Obama’s idea. Not only did he sign off on it, he threatened to veto GOP measures to deal with the cuts. Never mind that even with the alleged “cuts,” the government will continue to operate and spend more this year than it did last year.
Kevin Jackson, a conservative, national speaker, radio show host, and author said today that Liberals want to destroy this economy so bad that they purposely torpedoed this economy in order to gain more control of it.
On his radio show, Jackson explained, “We believe things because it gets reinforced and you never stop to just go wait a minute, that doesn’t make logical sense.” Continue reading →
Speaking with radio talk show host Bill Cunningham and Joe Trippi, Fox News’ Sean Hannity said a source who was in Friday’s meeting told him that he believes Obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff as part of a cynical political ploy.
According to Hannity, the unnamed source not only said that Obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff, the administration planned to do so from the very beginning.
