THIS OLD COOT NEEDS TO GO BACK UNDER HIS HOLLYWOOD “ROCK” OF STARS. NO ONE’S LISTENING MORGIE.

n a CNN interview with Piers Morgan airing Friday, Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman claimed the tea party movement is racist.

Asked whether Barack Obama’s presidency has made racism better or worse, Freeman responded by saying his 2008 election made it worse — because of Republicans.

“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term,” he said. “What’s, what does that, what underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.’”

When Piers Morgan insisted that race doesn’t play a role, Freeman shot back that “it is a racist thing.”

The actor also said it unnerved him to see the tea party gaining traction because it shows the hatred that exists in the United States.

“It just shows the weak, dark, underside of America,” Freeman said. “We’re supposed to be better than that. We really are. That’s, that’s why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. ‘Ah, look at what we are. Look at how, this is America.’ You know? And then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water.”

Obama: I reversed recession until ‘bad luck’ hit | Campaign 2012

The Federal Election Committee refused to stop, or prosecute, that credit card donations were flying in from the Middle east in amounts just under $200.

The Black Panthers interfering with elections in Philly were not prosecuted as that stinking Eric Holder said he could not prosecute his people.

Even the LA Times was prescient in defining that Obama could not be touched as he was black when they penned, “Barack, the Magic Negro”: http://tinyurl.com/2bkefq

It’s a great thing for a red-blooded American who is a decedent of slaves to become President. Unfortunately, Obama is not that man, has led a life of luxury from sources still unknown, and has had involvement with subversive groups his entire life. Those groups and the very wealthy have brought him to power and he has exceeded their wildest desires. The rest of us are getting a depression.

A great read is by former IMF president Simon Johnson (2007-2008) in The Atlantic Monthly (online) entitled “The Quiet Coup”. In May 2009 he urged America to not do what third world nations do and build an oligarchy as they will control the government when all is said and done. Obama is just one of many puppets; raised from birth to ascend to positions for others to profit. An informative book is “Dupes: How America’s Enemies Have Used Progressives Against Us For 100 Years”. It appears that they managed to get one to the highest office in the land. Obama should be impeached for many violations of his oath of office and breach of the law. John Locke would be asking us if we need the chains to rattle before we realize we are all slaves. Anarchy is no form of government, so we should do this now under the law to remain a nation of laws. If he is given 4 more years I fear we will be past the ability to restore this great nation through the ballot box. And if so, all is lost.

Do not waste your time trying to convert liberals. That is their religion. Few of the brainwashed will ever be awakened enough to find that they do not have minds of their own. Speak to independents and get them out to vote, for at the ballot box is where they need to be defeated. Then, with the republicans unfortunately being the only viable choice, we need to run good men and woman against those who have locked themselves into their do-nothing jobs and obtain a Congress that works for the people. We have 2 years to change this nation. Then all is lost if this despicable Liar-in-Chief manages to retain power and feed his oligarchs as the rest of America lines the food stamps rolls.

Post Tax Day, Obama jokes about re-thinking position on taxing wealthy – CBS News Video

Since the 1920s two platform staples of the Democrats has been “to close the tax loopholes,” and raise taxes on the wealthy.

Democrats have controlled the House of Representative 63 years of the last 77 years and the Senate 58 years of the last 77 years. The only loopholes that exist do so by their choice. During the

  • Eisenhower term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 91.25%.
  • President Kennedy cut the rate an average per year to 79.4%. Federal income tax revenue increased 55.81%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 56.35%
  • During the Carter term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 79.00%.
  • President Reagan cut the rate an average per year to 65.41%. Federal income tax revenue increased 65.41%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 68.72%.
  • During the Clinton term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 39.60%.
  • President Bush cut the rate an average per year to 35.46%.
  •  Federal income tax revenue increased 34.55%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 34.16%
  • During periods of low taxes the wealthy invest in U.S. corporations providing capital for business growth, expansion, improvements of infrastructure and job creation. During periods of high taxes they focus on protecting their wealth by moving their money to tax shelters which deprives corporation of capital for growth and eliminates jobs.

The American Spectator : The Timeless Principles of American Prosperity

A primer on supply-side economics:

We know, based on economic experience, theory, and logic, how to create another economic boom that will last 25 years, or a generation into the future. We achieved that in America from the end of 1982 to the end of 2007, with only two, short, shallow recessions that barely interrupted sustained, robust, economic growth. But that was not the only instance of success. Several times in the last 100 years, whenever the nation’s economic policies adhered to the timeless principles of economic growth and prosperity, our economy has boomed. When it has departed from those policies, it has fallen into stagnation, or worse.

One of the weaknesses of the NAACP is that it has rarely acknowledged black racism. The organization is silent on the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan. Yet, it is outraged about the Tea Party. There might be something hypocritical about that.

Charles Krauthammer – Beware the lame duck

Leading Democrats are already considering this as a way to achieve even more liberal measures that many of their members dare not even talk about, let alone enact, on the eve of an election in which they face a widespread popular backlash to the already enacted elements of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda.

Law Remakes U.S. Financial Landscape

Senate Passes Overhaul That Will Touch Most Americans; Bankers Gird for Fight Over Fine Print

By DAMIAN PALETTA And AARON LUCCHETTI

[FinRegNew] Associated PressKey legislators celebrate passing of the bill Thursday.

WASHINGTON—Congress approved a rewrite of rules touching every corner of finance, from ATM cards to Wall Street traders, in the biggest expansion of government power over banking and markets since the Depression.

The bill, to be signed into law soon by President Barack Obama, marks a potential sea change for the financial-services industry. Financial titans such as J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Bank of America Corp. may be forced to make changes in most parts of their business, from debit cards to the ability to invest in hedge funds.

Congress approved a sweeping rewrite of rules that touch every corner of finance in the biggest expansion of government power over banking and markets since the Great Depression. David Wessel, David Reilly and Al Lewis discuss the likely impact of Dodd-Frank.

The Senate passed the bill 60-39 Thursday, following House passage last month. Earlier in the day, three northeastern Republicans joined with Democrats to block a filibuster, allowing the bill to squeak through.

Now, the legislation hands off to 10 regulatory agencies the discretion to write hundreds of new rules governing finance. Rather than the bill itself, it will be this process—accompanied by a lobbying blitz from banks—that will determine the precise contours of this new landscape, how strict the new regulations will be and whether they succeed in their purpose. The decisions will be made by officials from new agencies, obscure agencies and, in some cases, agencies like the Federal Reserve that faced criticism in the run-up to the crisis.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has designated 30 “team leaders” to begin implementing its expansive new authority over derivatives, and has asked for $45 million for new staff. The Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Securities and Exchange Commission are also in the thick of the implementation.

The very basis of Barack Obama’s entire political career has been the assertion that he is one of the first examples of a post-racial politician. He consciously eschewed the notion that his presidency was notable for the triumph of a black politician and focused, instead, on what it said about the irrelevance of race to the political process. When the Clintons sought to inject race into the election by harping on the polarization of black support for Obama and likening his triumph in the South Carolina primary to that of Jesse Jackson, the Obama supporters cried foul and accused the former first couple of injecting race into the contest.

Now, Obama is letting his supporters strip away his image of a post-racial president by their increasingly racial rhetoric and his support for radical black activists.

Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers so obviously guilty of racial intimidation at the Philadelphia polling places in 2008 is of a piece with the NAACP’s loud denunciation of the Tea Party movement as racists, likening it to the White Citizens Councils of the segregationist past. And the Obama Administration’s decision to sue to overturn the Arizona immigration law — despite the fact that Americans approve of the statute, and disapprove of the lawsuit to void it, by 59-28 — is an attempt to foundation his appeal to Latino voters in racial terms.

In a bid to increase enthusiasm and, therefore, turnout among minority voters, Barack Obama is sacrificing his white support and his non-racial image.

Already, the results of this disastrous strategy are apparent. The latest FoxNews/Opinion Dynamics survey shows that his job approval among Democrats has fallen from 84% two weeks ago to a mere 76% today. This fall has led to a drop in his overall approval from 47% at the end of June to 43% in the middle of July.

But the political implications of Obama’s lurch to the left and his efforts to polarize his Administration racially are only part of the problem. Obama, as president of the United States, is increasingly taking sides in the old racial debates, reigniting them and lending new fuel to their flames. He is no more the president of all the people, but is retreating into the racial cocoon of a supportive minority vote.

Obama’s strategists must reason that it was only the minority vote tht elected him in 2008. His share of the white vote was the same as Senator John Kerry won in 2004. To be sure, Obama got more young whites to compensate for defections among older whites, but the total of his white support was the same as the Democrats won in 2004. It was the higher turnout and greater Democratic margins among African Americans and Latinos that led to Obama’s triumph. Now, he is seeking to rev up the enthusiasm among minorities to repeat that success in 2010.

But his strategy is doomed to fail. There are just not enough blacks around and the Latino vote is too upset at his economic policies and his past failure to push immigration reform to rally again to his candidacy. And more and more of the white majority is being turned off by Obama’s racial tactics.

It is dismaying to see a president whose rhetoric reflected racial progress to let his attorney general and his supporters play the race card in his bid to keep control of Congress. Dismaying and dumb.
