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.

Craig: I think it’s time we have a conversation about the election coming up on November 4th. I’m seeing a lot of stuff in social media that has nothing to do with the election and it’s starting to concern me that people are getting apathetic and won’t go out to vote.
Diane: Yeah Craig, I know what you mean… apathy just like in 2012…and we all know how that turned out now don’t we. Continue reading →
What if there is a pattern going back more than a decade in American history that shows that the last two economic crises occurred on a predictable seven year cycle? What if this pattern occurred at the same time as many other indications became evident, giving reason to believe that the pattern itself was not a coincidence? Would it be possible to predict when the next economic crisis would occur and prepare for it? Is there Bible prophecy of economic crisis that will occur on September 13, 2015?
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn believes that he has discovered just such a pattern within recent American history that stretches back before the September 11 attacks of 2001. Cahn, the author of the best-selling book, “The Harbinger,” discovered the astounding fact that the financial crashes of 2001 and 2008 both occurred on the same day of Jewish calendar. What’s more, that date was the very day and year of the Jewish calendar on which ancient Biblical law called for debts to be erased.
As this year’s midterm primary and general elections approach, analysts in many quarters are preparing for a sweeping Republican victory that may fundamentally change the balance of power in Washington, D.C. The collapse of Obamacare at the starting line, a faltering economy and deteriorating conditions around the world from Syria to the Ukraine make a Democratic implosion seem all but assured. In fact, to paraphrase cartoonist Walt Kelly, the greatest threat to a Republican victory may be the Republican candidates themselves.
2012 was proof that, even if voters are dissatisfied with Democrats, they still need a reason to vote for Republicans. Merely being opposed to Obamacare and higher taxes will not be enough in many cases. Voters are not flocking to the GOP even though approval of Obama and the Democrats is falling. In 2012, several flawed Republican candidates who did not connect with voters – or worse, alienated them – preserved Democratic control of the Senate for at least two more long years.
A new poll by AP-GfK released on Jan. 23 reveals that even though most Americans like Barack Obama personally, many think that he is a poor president. The poll found that while Obama’s image has rebounded in the months since the government shutdown, people are still pessimistic about the economy and the direction of the country. The poll showed that President Obama’s likability had increased by nine percent since the end of the government shutdown in October. Fifty-eight percent of Americans now view the president as very or somewhat likeable. Continue reading →
ABC News’ Jonathan Karl actually engaged in a bit of real journalism when he called out White House press spokesman Jay Carney over Obama’s refusal to negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling, adding that it’s the White House that’s actually threatening default, not the GOP House.
Carney claimed Republicans are engaged in an “all out civil war” with conservatives pushing for a shutdown. But as The Blaze points out, that’s not what Republicans want.
The Nazis were famous for boldly lying through their teeth and then passing off that lie as the truth. It was a remarkable record that stood alone until 2009. Their once impressive record has not merely been beaten but has been smashed by Barack Obama. To believe his latest prevarication, not only would you have to as Hillary once said, have to practice the suspension of disbelief.
Obama makes the absurd claim that the Keystone Pipeline would create only 2100 jobs. Forget the rhetoric on both sides for a moment and let’s look at the raw numbers. The pipeline would be 1179 miles long. That’s 2100 people to manufacture the pipes, fittings, valves, and accessories, transport the pipes and fittings all along the 1179 mile route, provide food and lodging for the construction crews, and lay the pipeline. Could it be done? Sure if you wouldn’t mind waiting 40 years for the pipeline to be built. Continue reading →
In seven cities across America, fast food workers, sponsored by the SEIU, will be picketing and demanding their pay be increased to $15.25 an hour. Don’t they know they live in the United States of America? You don’t like your pay, take your massive amount of burger flipping experience to Google or Microsoft. They pay the kind of money you want.
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 →
