37 Statistics Which Show How Four Years Of Obama Have Wrecked The U.S. EconomyThe mainstream media covered the inauguration of Barack Obama with breathless anticipation on Monday, but should we really be celebrating another four years of Obama?  The truth is that the first four years of Obama were an absolute train wreck for the U.S. economy.  Over the past four years, the percentage of working age Americans with a job has fallen, median household income has declined by more than $4000, poverty in the U.S. has absolutely exploded and our national debt has ballooned to ridiculous proportions.  Of course all of the blame for the nightmarish performance of the economy should not go to Obama alone.  Certainly much of what we are experiencing today is the direct result of decades of very foolish decisions by Congress and previous presidential administrations.  And of course the Federal Reserve has more influence over the economy than anyone else does.  But Barack Obama steadfastly refuses to criticize anything that the Federal Reserve has done and he even nominated Ben Bernanke for another term as Fed Chairman despite his horrific track record of failure, so at a minimum Barack Obama must be considered to be complicit in the Fed’s very foolish policies.  Despite what the Obama administration tells us, the U.S. economy has been in decline for a very long time, and that decline has accelerated in many ways over the past four years.  Just consider the statistics that I have compiled below.  The following are 37 statistics which show how four years of Obama have wrecked the U.S. economy…

1. During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.

2. At the beginning of the Obama era, 32 million Americans were on food stamps.  Today, more than 47 million Americans are on food stamps.

3. According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

4. The number of Americans receiving money directly from the federal government each month has grown from 94 million in the year 2000 to more than 128 million today.

5. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income” at this point.

6. The unemployment rate in the United States is exactly where it was (7.8 percent) when Barack Obama first entered the White House in January 2009.

7. When Barack Obama first entered the White House, 60.6 percent of all working age Americans had a job.  Today, only 58.6 percent of all working age Americans have a job.

8. During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” soared by an astounding 8,332,000.  That far exceeds any previous four year total.

9. During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose by more than 18 percent.

10. The Obama years have been absolutely devastating for small businesses in America.  According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration

Bush Sr.: 11.3

Clinton: 11.2

Bush Jr.: 10.8

Obama: 7.8

11. Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years.  Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

12. The economy is not producing nearly enough jobs for the hordes of young people now entering the workforce.  Approximately 53 percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed in 2011.

13. According to a report from the National Employment Law Project, 58 percent of the jobs that have been created since the end of the recession have been low paying jobs.

14. Back in 2007, about 28 percent of all working families were considered to be among “the working poor”.  Today, that number is up to 32 percent even though our politicians tell us that the economy is supposedly recovering.

15. According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, only 24.6 percent of all of the jobs in the United States are “good jobs” at this point.

16. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before.

17. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.

18. The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

19. According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percent of all global economic activity in 2001.  That number declined steadily over the course of the next decade and was only at 21.6 percent in 2011.

20. The United States actually has plenty of oil and we should not have to import oil from the Middle East.  We need to drill for more oil, but Obama has been very hesitant to do that.  Under Bill Clinton, the number of drilling permits approved rose by 58 percent.  Under George W. Bush, the number of drilling permits approved rose by 116 percent.  Under Barack Obama, the number of drilling permits approved actually decreased by 36 percent.

21. When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of gasoline was $1.84.  Today, the average price of a gallon of gasoline is $3.26.

22. Under Barack Obama, the United States has lost more than 300,000 education jobs.

23. For the first time ever, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless.  That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.

24. Families that have a head of household under the age of 30 now have a poverty rate of 37 percent.

25. More than three times as many new homes were sold in the United States in 2005 as were sold in 2012.

26. Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

27. Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president.

28. Today, 77 percent of all Americans live paycheck to paycheck at least part of the time.

29. It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

30. The total amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has grown by 32 percent since Barack Obama became president.

31. The Obama administration has been spending money on some of the most insane things imaginable.  For example, in 2011 the Obama administration spent $592,527 on a study that sought to figure out once and for all why chimpanzees throw poop.

32. U.S. taxpayers spend more than 20 times as much on the Obamas as British taxpayers spend on the royal family.

33. The U.S. government has run a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars every single year under Barack Obama.

34. When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent.  Today, it is up to 103 percent.

35. During Obama’s first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

36. As I wrote about yesterday, when you break it down the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States.  Are you ready to contribute your share?

37. If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off.

But despite all of these numbers, the mainstream media and the left just continue to shower Barack Obama with worship and praise.  Newsweek recently heralded Obama’s second term as “The Second Coming“, and at Obama’s pre-inauguration church service Reverand Ronald Braxton openly compared Obama to Moses…

At Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, Braxton reportedly crafted his speech around Obama’s personal political slogan: “Forward!”

Obama, said Braxton, was just like Moses facing the Red Sea: “forward is the only option … The people couldn’t turn around. The only thing that they could do was to go forward.” Obama, said Braxton, would have to overcome all obstacles – like opposition from Republicans, presumably, or the bounds of the Constitution. Braxton continued, “Mr. President, stand on the rock,” citing to Moses standing on Mount Horeb as his people camped outside the land of Israel.

But it wasn’t enough to compare Obama with the founder of Judaism and the prophet of the Bible. Braxton added that Obama’s opponents were like the Biblical enemies of Moses, and that Obama would have to enter the battle because “sometimes enemies insist on doing it the hard way.”

So what do you think the next four years of Obama will bring?

  • 4 more years of gary spewing

    • christensen_lehman

      Gary’s last name is “Spewing”?
      Good to know.

  • It took many years and many Presidents to put us where we are. You just make yourself look like a gigot with posts like these.

    • 2Gary2

      Michael is a right wing hack who has to appeal to the low information conservatives to increase traffic to his various sites. The sad thing is I am fairly certain he is smarter than his articles let on.

      • why do you read the site if you are sooooooo smart, LMAO at pos libs who S*CK the obama C*CK

        • 2Gary2

          it is very entertaining to read the tea billie comments.

          • Syrin

            It is more entertaining to see your douche bagger no information understanding of something like an economy.

      • Syrin

        Yes, yet another typical post from the typical no information supporter of our American Fuhrer. Great at spouting piss, hate and bile; terrible at everything else. Have you EVER once in your life even ATTEMPTED to use any of the following? Facts, figures, history or logic.

        *wipes tears from eyes*

        Man, I just cracked myself up.

      • Syrin

        GARY, do this for us. See, a study of 37 countries over 21 years showed us that the ONLY way to recover from debt was to cut spending. Nations that raised taxes accelerated their declime, nations that raised taxes and partly cut spending declined and never recovered, and the on;y nations that recovered were the ones that cut spending.

        BUT YOU, in all your brilliance just know that history is wrong. So here’s YOUR CHANCE GARY !!!

        Tell us, in very BASIC terms. How does taking more money away from citizens and businesses, then giving it to the government improve the economy. Tell us the mechanism, because NO STUDY of any nation in history has ever shown us that taxing the rich makes the poor wealthier, In fact, studies show us that taxing the rich more makes the poor poorer, and all four years of Oba,a’s presidency have shown us this is true, and the next four years will again validate that, but here is your chance with your complex understanding of the machinations of macroeconomics to tell us how taking capital away improves the economy. Please, show us as I already plan to disseminate your answer throughout the internet as the liberal example of how to fix our economy explained in easy to understand terms.

        • A.S.

          Give it up, you are talking to a wall! But it will all end soon because the first people to be rounded up by Obama’s private police force will be people like Gary. Then he can spew his hate from the luxury (not!) of his private 3-bedroom home(not!) in the fema center compound.

  • 2Gary2

    Hey I see California balanced its budget by TAXING THE RICH! This is more proof that taxing the rich works.

    • LMAO at liars

    • Rodster

      Whenever I need a good laugh I come hear to read Gary2’s stupidity. Hey Gary2 you might want to update your low information comment because after Cali raised taxes on the rich errrrr “Middle Class” they now have a larger deficit. You can’t fix stupid i.e leftists.

      • Syrin

        I KNOW !! This MORRON spouts out things as if they are facts when they are 180 DEGREES the OPPOSITE of what ACTUALLY HAPPENED !!!!!! I can’t tell if he’s a paid misinformation Sorobot, or just truly that stupid. Maybe both !

        • C. Lehman

          No offense, but it’s interesting how you continually call Gary a “MORRON”, when the proper spelling is “MORON”, with one “R”. More than interesting, it’s ironic.

          • Syrin

            No, it’s called intentionally bypassing the auto mod. Surely someone as bright as you should be able to figure it out. Notice which other words are also intentionally misspelled.

    • Hey Gary, shouldn’t you out on a ledge somewhere?

    • Traffix

      The taxes will continue to force the exodus from California, however, marijuana has been a huge help to California, it should be legal and taxed nationwide. BTW why do bars have parking lots?

      • Syrin

        Phil Mickleson announced he pays about 63% in taxes and will be making “huge changes”.

        Think of that. 63%. That’s SLAVERY ! He’s now an indentured servant, but he still has options, and I’m glad he’s going to do something about it. California drove Tiger Woods away, and was named the worst state for business 8 years in a row, That’s Bush’s fault, right GARY?

      • Jagrick

        I read stuff like this and would have you prove that Marijuana is the big boom you portray. I doubt it. More people drink than smoke and alcohol hasn’t provided the same boom. I don’t think any recreational drug or such is a big boom to anything.

    • Mondobeyondo

      Oh brother.

      News flash – the rich are now broke!
      Just heard that from Katie Couric.
      Scott Pelley is reporting the same.
      They’ve been taxed into oblivion, and are now broke.
      Haven’t heard from Walter Cronkite yet. But since he has now passed away, any answer from him may take a while……

      • 2Gary2

        absolutely nottrue–the rich are richer than they have ever been and they are paying the lowest tax rate ever. These are facts you can look up for yourself. This is the main cause of the huge wealth and income inequality in this country

        • Syrin

          Yes, but here’s the problem, when we look up the facts, we see a DECLINE in the number of US millionaires, the fact that the top 5% paid 55% of ALL taxes according to the IRS which completely contradicts your liberal fantasy. See, you make no distinction from “wealthy” and uber wealthy, and the uber wealthy are all on YOUR SIDE. The uber wealthy all donate to YOUR American Fuhrer, and yes, UNLIKE YOU, we HAVE LOOKED AT THE FACTS, and like a typical LAZY liberal, you just tell US to do the work FOR YOU.

          If you want to tell us the UBER rich who are mainly Wall Street banksters, and who ALL donate HEAVILY to YOUR BOYS, are raping this nation for their gain, then yeah, I’d agree with you. But YOUR side gives them bail outs, tax breaks and Cabinet positions.

          • Gay Veteran

            “If you want to tell us the UBER rich who are mainly Wall Street banksters, and who ALL donate HEAVILY to YOUR BOYS, are raping this nation for their gain, then yeah, I’d agree with you. But YOUR side gives them bail outs, tax breaks and Cabinet positions.”
            BOTH Bush and Obama did that

        • Bad_Mr_Frosty

          “Spreading the wealth around” makes the rich, richer. Take food stamps, Cargill produces most of the food in the US and it basically controls the USDA. The USDA is pushing food stamps on everyone, why? Tax payer money goes directly to Cargill via its monopoly on the food supply. Still further, because of supply and demand, the price of food goes up as people use their food stamps to get more food than they would otherwise be able to afford. No need to budget your food when the US taxpayer is paying for it.

          Same with big Pharma and socialized medicine. Taxpayer money is used to buy their drugs and demand skyrockets while supply dwindles.

          The street level socialists like OWS play right into the hands of big business. They think they’re fighting big corporations, but in reality they’re useful idiots helping big business.

        • Mondobeyondo

          They won’t be rich for much longer. Obama will see to that.

          • 2Gary2

            Thank God for that. google the “no billionaires” to see a new push to tax the rich

          • ian

            boo hoo. cry me a freakin river. The wealthy wont be able to afford their second home in the Hamptons this year, or their vacation in the south of france.

    • Syrin

      Balanced the budget ??!!? Do you even KNOW what that term means ?!?!? They are almost a TRILLION away, and their estimated revenue gains from raising the taxes is almost HALF as I TOLD YOU WOULD HAPPEN !! Taxes this year will go up, and tax revenue will go DOWN as the economy shrinks and there is LESS TO TAX. As I keep pointing out to you, simpleton, you are better off taking 2% of a billion than 100% of a million, but that is string theory for you, well beyond your mental capacity.

    • Bad_Mr_Frosty

      Money knows no borders. They will simply move to a different country and then come back as “resident aliens”.

    • afchief

      I guess that is why Phil Mikelson is leaving the peoples republic of California

      • Mondobeyondo

        Yeah, and they’re all coming here to Arizona. Close the border already!

    • TooLittleTooLate

      The only thing that bothers me about California doing this is that it has caused a mass influx of former Californians to relocate to Texas where I live…. IF a state wants to tax their citizens to death, they’ll just vote with their feet as they have done in California… ( and continue to do )
      I think it’s all too obvious that one main difference in left or right thinking is the role of govt. to take and distribute taxes…. anyway, I’d like to have an honest talk about how to pay for all of the social programs we have without a total revamping of them all?
      I’m not here to bash you, Gary and I think you get more than a little fun out of getting a rise out of folks here but, if you really believe the stuff you write here, answer me this question:
      I see our debt as a problem BUT, I must admit with BOJ starting new rounds of printing and the ECB and our FED open ended printing now… how do you see this ending UNLESS we get a handle on both our out of control banks and our out of control govt?
      Between the deflationary pressure and our inflationary pressure by expanding our monitary base to infinity ( with everyone else in western society also doing this )….. I can’t see this ending well. What MAY be happening is that the FOCUS on debt may be moving to a foreign exchange crisis….. They’ll keep interest rates a zero because they have to now.
      Energy, food and other commodities will go to infinity following this path. Of course we’ll pay for social security and everything else but, the only problem is that we’ll do it with worthless dollars. Our standard of living will be reduced… because it has to be…. one way or the other.

  • 2Gary2

    Its the republican great recession that has caused the economy to be so bad. I do admit that Obama has been way too conservative. We need another stimulus, single payer and to heavily tax the rich and wall street.

    Why are banks allowed to launder drug money and only get a fine but if someone sells a little coke they go to jail? WTF

    • LMAO

      • 2Gary2

        Given that you say this so often do you have any ass left to laugh off?

    • Traffix

      Gary is our Bob Beckell, we need him to keep up the ratings.

      • 2Gary2

        I do provide much needed balance to Michael’s right wing hacknedess.

        • Syrin

          No, you provide much needed idiocy and example of the no information leftist in contradiction to all the documented facts he provides with hundreds of links.

          • MisterC

            If anyone wants to feel smarter all they have to do is read his leftist/communist drivel. So, he does serve some purpose.

          • ian

            how may countries have survived under conservative policies throughout history ? Just curious. Please provide stats.

    • Syrin

      Wow, still blaming Bush for your complete failure. Stimulus? So to fix the economy, here’s what you’ll do. You’ll take a trillion dollars out of the economy, pay off all the workers involved in taking that money, then put $600 billion back into the “economy” meaning labor unions and other friends of the left. So in the process we will have destroyed $400 billion in wealth, taken capital away from businesses and gifted it to those who will not use it to grow the economy.

      See people. This the left. NO, and I mean NO understanding of the most BASIC economic principles. He blames all his failings on the predecessor. Hey GARY, what year will you blame Bush until? 2076? Never. You’re an idddiiot of epic proportions, and all of your “solutions” would make the problems WORSE, show us your economic illiteracy and also show your greed. Furthermore, they also show your push to tyranny where forced extraction by an ever intrusive gov’t is the “answer”. We have declined in the economic freedom index every year since your American Fuhrer started power f’ing America. I suppose that’s Bush’s fault too, right? What an imbecile.

      • 2Gary2

        Google ‘clue store’, find the store locator and go buy yourself some clues.

      • sharonsj

        Syrin, what effing stimulus are you talking about? We’ve had exactly one, and I’m sure that 40% of it was tax credits as demanded by the Republicans. Most of the other money went to the states so they could retain police, fire, and teachers. When the money ran out, states starting firing people. Are those the unions you’re complaining about? If so, if your house burned down I’d consider that divine intervention.

        This took no money away from businesses. In fact, big business is doing fine and stealing what’s left of OUR money.

    • MisterC

      Because the banks own the government. DUH!!

      • Mondobeyondo

        Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!

    You ought to Tweet this article to @whitehouse. LOL.

  • Frankenstein Government


    I gotta tell ya, I quit reading this blog over a year ago. It just regurgitates the same old tired stuff. It’s not that it isn’t true- it’s just that it gets old. After a few years, it all seems passe’.

    I am not trying to be mean here- just truthful. Maybe it’s time for a new slant.

  • Finance Junkie

    During Obama’s first term, the stock market went up more than any other president’s 4 year term but that of two Presidents. =)

    • Mondobeyondo

      Yup. And you stocks are still worth half of what they were worth in 2008. So, your net worth during that time is a big fat fabulous ZERO!

  • K

    What will 4 more years of Obama bring? The same thing as 4 years of Romney would have brought. All of you had a chance to vote third party. The Libertarians had a decent candidate. But just about none of you voted for him. All of you had a chance to vote out every incumbent, no matter who you had to vote for. But almost none of you did. You want to know who caused all that is coming, check a mirror. An old friend said, for man to advance. Stupid has to hurt. Many here must be in agony.

    • 2Gary2

      you know there is some truth to what you said. I can’t for the life of me figure out why so many stupid Fcks keep voting for lyin paul; ryan.

    • Jagrick

      Do you really believe that popular vote is the end all of whom gets elected?

      • K

        No. But if enough people, just once, turned away from the major parties. At least we would know if elections mean anything anymore. In an information age, ignorance is a choice.

        • Jagrick

          Think about this stat. 94% black voted for Obama. That should tell you all you really need to know about people, but you should have known this already and I bet 100% of the people that post here do.

    • El Pollo de Oro

      K: Very good points. Back in November, one of the Repuli-Cons who occasionally responds to Michael T. Snyder’s commentaries said something idiotic along the lines of, “All you people who voted for Gary Johnson reelected Obama.” My response to that nonsense: no, people who voted for Gary Johnson voted for Gary Johnson and no one else. The two-party system will not save this dying, collapsing empire known as The Banana Republic of America. The banksters were guaranteed a victory in November regardless of whether Marack “Goldman Sachs” Robama or Bitt “Wall Street” Omney got to run the War Party’s fascist/imperialist freak show. The War Party carried all 50 states on November 6, and the BRA’s nightmarish collapse goes ahead as scheduled. God help us.

  • erheault

    Adolf Hitler also had a large appeal to millions of Germans but look how that turned out, Are we next for a Dictator?.

    • Mondobeyondo

      Be wary and very observant, of people who gain a mass following.Search hard for their true intentions. Some are benevolent. (Jesus, JFK,Lincoln, MLK, Gandhi, etc.) Others well, they tend to lead you straight to the slaughterhouse. (Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao).

      It’s up to you who to follow. But I would sincerely consider reading about/following the guys with good intentions.

      • Hammerstrike

        Depend what you really know about them.

        Never mind that many countries have laws to defend “historical truths”.

    • Syrin

      Are we next?

      We are already there !!!!!!!!!

      Think about this. Between the NDAA and his new Executive Orders, he made THOUGHTS a crime that can lead to removal of Constitutional rights. You have NO representation, NO charges, and NO means to defend yourself with NO body to even appeal to. How in the HELLLL is that NOT NNNNAZZII Germany ?!?!

      • Bad_Mr_Frosty

        White conservative, patriotic Americans are Obama’s Jews

      • TooLittleTooLate

        You are correct… and it doesn’t matter who is in power. Both parties want this….. they both voted for all of it…. seems that is the only sort of thing that both parties can agree on…. they all blame the terrorists that surely must be hiding behind every tree now.
        We are divided constantly in this country by left and right but, what about up and down… up being liberty loving folks and down being authortaritarian.
        Gandi was a socialist ( leftist ) but, he was anti-authoritarian. Folks like me don’t like a whole lot of government and we don’t like authoritarian rule either.
        Somehow both sides grow government while creating an ever more sufficating authoritarian, Orwellian nightmare for us to live in.
        This whole thing is going to blow soon. It can’t possibly continue…. In the last 4yrs we added more debt than the first 42 presidents combined. Sadly, most are still asleep even though most people know something is wrong.
        No, we won’t have to worry about the NDAA or other legislation until things do get bad… then the mask comes off and we get to see just how terrible it can be when power is used against it’s citizens.
        We’ll just have to see how long before our fiscal matters drag us down. If I were a betting man… I’ll bet they can keep this thing going a lot longer than we may think. I think we’ll have our 401k put under govt. control ( with the full backing of the us govt. of course )… I believe we’ll get a euro style VAT tax. With all major western economies into infinite QE ( Japan just started new rounds ), we’re in a massive race to the bottom…. While we accuse China of monitary games, it’s the exact same thing we’re all doing now. Who suffers…. we do…. not the govt. WE DO.
        There is a reset… whether it’s a slow dying of the middle class or it happens in a snap, it’s coming…. It’s happening now.

    • Ralfine

      Hitler blamed the lost war on the left. That got him almost half the votes. He got the missing votes after he had the opposition arrested.

      • Hammerstrike

        He called them traitors because they where traitors.

        • Ralfine

          The farmers and workers got killed by the hundredthousands in the war.
          So when they called it quits they are traitors?

          Traitors are rather those who risk other people’s lives out of greed.

          • Hammerstrike

            Yep, they fought and when they needed ammunitions the most, strikes in ammunition factories.
            Prostitued politicians backed by banster pimps pretended to stand with the workers, with peace, with the democratic utopia that was the republic but they really stood only for themselves, their self-interest at the expense of the entire country.
            There is a reason the left, was easily subdued after Hitler took power, they knew that the German people knew them too well to support another November revolution followed by more of the same shenangians.

        • Hammerstrike

          Nope, the Soviet-Union built that and the USUK too, except mostly through bombings cities of a country which war effort was directed 76-80% in the opposite direction.

          Took them a while to do that.
          Germany was caught unprepared by the Anglo-French declaration of war, to fighting against industrialized powers.
          They declared that war for what? So their own peoples would not question the rotten societies and stinking leadership they had.

          • Ralfine

            Germany prepared for war since the end of WW I. Where do you think all the unemployed went? Into war preparation. Reichs labor camps for the unemployed men. Training with the spade as if they were carbines. Marching, exercising, political education, building discipline and obedience. And building motor ways, dams, air fields, draining swamps.

            That is correct Obamanation is causing the USa Military to become weak so we can no longer protect Israel. He is a Muslim you know. Bottom line anyone who makes it into the presidency is a puppet for the global elite or they do not get in. Laastly, Obamanations background and beliefs are socialist which is why he is where he is and do since Harp can control the weather the storm in the NE was engineered to make sure he won.

    • Hammerstrike

      He pulled his country out of the gutter, renewed its infrastructures, its economy and its military too and made even the yankees scared.

      In fact, German technology, production and built-up could have been a lot faster if the Soviet-Union had not been massively underestimated (something the US did until the launch of Sputnik) , lack of ressources and Germany having been caught by surprise, unprepared for a war with England and France in September 1939.

      His brand of socialism works pretty well and support for it was earned through actual results too.

      His appeal grew be brought results, so does Obama, in the form of welfare for the parasite class.

      • Ralfine

        By parasite class you mean the shareholders and corporations, right?

        Those who couldn’t exist without someone working for them?

        Yes, that’s what Obama is doing wrong. But after all, from an European perspective Obama is standing to the right and is therefore in the employ of those parasites.

        • Hammerstrike

          Among others.

          Wouldn´t it be prejudice, social racism to judge all shareholders and corporations after their most influent, greatest number?
          The situation is that it is easier to depend on the federale reserve´s free money and governement than competence and skills.

          I would not state that all welfare recipients are parasites or that the idea of a safety net is evil in itself, just those who milk that system.

    Actually Braxton is totally off from his Biblical knowledge and/or explanation about Moses and the Jews being ‘trapped’ at the Red Sea. There were four choices: 1. go back; 2. fight; 3. go forward (not the best choice); 4. go right through like the waters are not even there.

    Why is number 4. really different? Because it shows faith in Moses and G-d, that the obstacles aren’t really obstacles, but have no force or substance whatsoever. What does that mean if the connection between Obama and Moses was really valid? That Obama should go through the Federal Reserve like a speeding train going through a clunker stuck on the tracks. The Federal Reserve has no force or substance; we only give it so by acknowledging it. But we all know that Obama is afraid of the Federal Reserve, therefore, he is far from even a simple person who is truly G-d fearing and with piety. So much for Braxton’s intelligence or Obama’s leadership.

    • C. Lehman

      The Moses story is allegory, though. We can’t treat it as if it actually happened. The way you explained it shows that the myth has value to convey to us how to tackle seemingly impossible obstacles; but I disagree that we need faith in a “god” that doesn’t exist. The myth tells us that formidable, seeming impossible-to-overcome obstacles might not be so difficult to conquer after all. And I agree with that. 🙂

      • smallergovnow

      2018: Bread in Austin, Texas costs $40.00/loaf.
      2018: Hillary Clinton becomes the first female U.S. President. Her inauguration is most notably marked by a performance by Katy Perry, who sings her 2007 hit, “I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It”.
      2017: U.S. debt breaks $19 trillion.

      • El Pollo de Oro

        Mondobeyondo: Thanks for a good laugh. A little comic relief is always appreciated in these dark times. I thought your “U.S. declares war on Sweden” prediction for 2017 was especially clever, although I got to thinking that back in 2003/2004, some talk radio neocons really did advocate bombing Paris in response to France’s opposition to the neocons’ imperialist invasion in Iraq (and they weren’t joking). I wouldn’t put anything past the neocons (or, for that matter, the Democrap useful idiots who push their imperialist agenda). But then, the financial situation in The Banana Republic of America might be so terrible by 2017 that the BRA will be forced to give up on nation-building, empire-building fantasies.

        As for “U.S. declares war on Iran,” I think that one’s a given. Gerald Celente puts it best: “when all else fails, they take you to war.”

          • El Pollo de Oro

            Mondobeyondo: One thing I’m wondering about 2013 is whether Snoopy the Dog or Snoop Dogg (formerly Snoop Doggy Dogg) will win the Supper Bowl.

            My fearless prediction (this one’s really over the top) for 2022: The Banana Republic of America will win defeat Spain in the World Cup (ha ha!). Or maybe if the BRA breaks up into several different banana republics, one of the new banana republics will win.

I doubt ANY high school graduate could tell you ANYTHING about Hayek, Friedman, Mises, Rothbard, economic freedom, the Bill of Rights, etc. but they certainly could tell you about Marx and “Mein Kampf”. Would they know that over 40 million Russians were killed in the process? Hellll no! It’s the era of the no information voter, and the era of something TRULY new. The era where people vote in DIRECT CONTRADICTION to their DAILY REALITY !! Things are getting worse, average income down $4,000+, unemployment at record levels, record #’s on food stamps, record debt, record EVERYTHING bad, and these no information morrrons STILL voted for those that wiped them out financially and enslaved the next three generations of Americans financially. Well to this I say, GOOD !! You iiddiots seem to believe the laws of economics are mutable things when history tells us a much different story. You liked the decreased standard of living before? Just wait until this tyrant has nothing to restrain him. You haven’t seen ANYTHING yet. NONE of the truly economy destroying things about Obamacare have been fully implemented yet, and its already destroying the economy. He will take away your only means to resist. He last week made THOUGHTS a crime that can remove you of Constitutional rights. That is as of TODAY !! And just wait until the currency collapse. We just entered the first steps of a currency war that began with Japan last week. Wait until the dollar is worthless. GOOD !! You moorrons will starve, literally, and I used to be compassionate to your plight. I used to help, give time and money, but I have changed. I realize that this is WHAT YOU WANT !! You want your kids to be slaves you want to be servants of the state, you want to feel the pains of hunger, LITERALLY. Who am I to keep you from your dream? You watched “The Hunger Games” and decided that was the world you wished to live in. Well I learned a new term, and I will be experiencing it a great deal the next 4 years or more, likely from a nation much much MUCH farther away than these no information voters can dream of. It is schadenfreude. SCHADENFREUDE baby, live it love it learn it, because this is what you wanted.

    • Nexusfast123

      You are an idiot. The US capitalist system is working well. It is a form of capitalism that favours a narrow cadre of people in the US – the executives of US transnationals, the shareholders of said companies and politicians who do their bidding. I call this ‘crude capitalism’. A particularly nasty form of the contagion. This form of capitalism is gutting the US economy and disconnecting workers from the means of earning an income but US companies like Apple are making big profits.

      What underpins this form capitalism is a remorseless reduction in costs – all costs. This approach means that US capital does not build value through innovation within the US (the idea that Americans cannot build iPads, etc is stupid). Value is largely generated through cost reduction. This encompasses a number of tactics that includes ‘in-sourcing’, ‘out-sourcing’, ‘off-shoring’, etc, which are underpinned by tax policies, global trade agreements, etc. These are all tactics deployed by US capital to reduce costs in terms of labour and capital inputs. This has resulted in shifting capital off shore (50,000+ factories closed down), reducing labour costs through in-sourcing of cheap labour (mainly Indians) and also out-sourcing of labour services to cheap labour pools. In-sourcing eliminates blue collar jobs and in-sourcing and out-sourcing eliminates white collar/professional jobs.

      The US labour pool has been dumped into a global labour pool of a couple of billion Indians and Chinese. They just don’t care about you. You are expendable like the factories they have closed and the engineering skills they don’t invest in any more, etc.

      Obama is part of the elites that are sticking to this policy of ‘globalisation’. It would have been no different under Romney. In fact he would have seen it as the ultimate asset stripping opportunity of his career. It is rather disingenuous to claim that Obama is the sole creator of the issues in the US. This started 40 or so years ago but has recently accelerated as economic conditions have worsened after 2008. The rise in claimants is as a consequence of a sick economy – you either remain civilised and provide a safety net for those that have no income, or you cut payments and pick up the consequences.

      If the current policy stance is not changed the decline will continue (don’t see any change being made unless there is a crisis). Studies have suggested that up to 40m jobs in the US could be impacted by in-sourcing and out-sourcing strategies.

      PS – Friedman was a charlatan. His ‘instrumentalism’ can be broken down quite easily by any competent philosopher. It’s a dogma to underpin the work of the IMF, World Bank, privatisation and the theft of the ‘commons’.

      • Vitessa

        Nexusfast you are so correct. Companies today want the least amount of employees, or no employees at all if they could help it. They want all of the profit, but without hiring workers. It is a nasty form of capitalism. Economy will not grow and continue stagnant until demand grows, their will be no demand until people can spend money, people cannot spend money if they don’t have jobs, the death spiral will continue.

      • Ralfine

        This “cost savings at all cost” leads to flu epidemics in the US, as sick workers go to work for fear of getting fired when they take a day off.

      “Would they know that over 40 million Russians were killed in the process?”

      Yes, they all have or rather not quiet, the numbers keeps changing from 20 millions to 110 millions.
      At least the holocaust remaines around 6 millions, it looks like something within what the 3rd Reich could pull off, being an industrialized country which regime enjoyed strong popular support.
      Nothing like the enormous contradictions, impossibility and epic retardation of the anti-stalin propaganda.

    The reason the administration didn’t do anything of substance on gun control right now is that there are midterm elections coming up. Stop and think about that just for a minute. Now, there is no doubt that they want to and still may BUT, if the administration continuously pick fights with the GOP and grandstand with the MSM playing along… he has a chance at getting the house back midterm.
    If that were to happen, there is no limit to the damage that could be wrought on our country.

    With the rich of this world
    Prostituting yourself
    For money and power
    And became a den
    Of thieves and murderers
    You forgot all about
    The One Who blessed
    You so abundantly
    Biting the Hand of the Blesser
    Embarrassed to mention His Name !
    Did He not teach you
    To be wise as a serpent
    And harmless as a dove
    Why then do you behave
    As a silly goose ??
    He invited you to His dinner Table
    He so diligently prepared
    But, you made light of it
    And went your worldly, haughty ways
    One to his farm,
    Another to his business.
    But as the Father of Fathers
    He waits for your return
    The return of His prodigal daughter
    Humble your pride
    And follow the Way, the Life and the Truth !!!
    Or, I SHALL cry you a river
    A river of bloody tears
    And much much more !!!

    “COEXIST” the latest command
    of the “New World Order” band
    live and let live
    no need to forgive
    for there ain’t no sin
    each living their own spin

    Coexistence a cold and loveless word
    in a cold and loveless earth
    for they have declared God dead
    and worship themselves instead
    mankind in his selfish pride
    orchestrates the worldwide divide

    but LOVE will return as LOVE
    He begs us to throw in the glove
    to run away from the dragon
    to escape the devil’s paddy wagon
    to turn to the Eternal Light
    be our heart broken but contrite

    He will cleanse us thoroughly
    from all sin and iniquity
    we will live as brothers and sisters
    no need to send us any twisters
    no more armies, no more wars
    no more enemies at our doors.

    be watchful, children, be on guard
    keep Me constant in your heart
    My return date you don’t know
    but Myself suddenly I will show
    in a new and peaceful Jerusalem
    a new birth in a new Bethlehem

      Oh yes, we all heard of the “LOVE” the priests bestow on small boys.
      Wouldn’t coexistence be so more beneficial for those children?

      • Riki

        sexual mistreatments have nothing to do with LOVE, they are a crime. Loving each other has nothing to do with sex. You can coexist without LOVE, just by “coldly” “co”-existing. Do you understand me Priszilla. ? We need to love each other from the heart out !!!

        • Priszilla

          Yes I understand.
          Let’s see.
          We say a francophile is someone who loves France and everything french.
          Wr say a bibliophile loves books.
          Yet those who “love” children, actually rape them and beat them, often to death. I’m talking here about parents and priests, of course.

          • Riki

            Priszilla I’m really disgusted with this crazy world .


            The world has gone nuts
            each one acts like a klutz
            it’s all about me, only me
            thus destroying the family

            There are no more virtues
            the vices know no curfews
            each is his own god, master
            causing the world’s disaster

            They often act as wild animals
            Even dare to live as cannibals
            Everything that once was Holy
            is looked upon as if too lowly

            Pastors abandoning the flock
            discord is splitting the Rock
            causing the sheep to be lost
            sacred values being tossed

            A small remnant lives hidden
            overt creed being forbidden
            waiting for God’s intervention
            for cleansing and redemption

            We cry out loud to You
            our Lord and savior do
            please hasten Your coming
            hear our desperate longing

            Which is why I love trees.

          • Riki


            In a world so full of darkness
            hearts transform into harshness

            mouths are hurling insults
            iving the Me, Me, Me cults

            A brother killing his brother
            a daughter killing her mother
            kids who choose rather
            than to obey, to kill the father

            a world drenched in the occult
            and in God refuses to exult
            has chosen its own direction
            thus asking for Your correction

            As in the times of Noah, we are in the days
            You spoke of in so many different ways
            we live in the end of time as we know it
            in which finally Thy Kingdom will be legit

            Please Lord, let Your Light
            more than ever be so bright
            let it shine upon each faithful son
            to achieve the victory already won.

            Jesus will triumph in the final victory over the devil

    Lord, carry us safely on Your shoulders
    our feet hurt from the rocks and the boulders
    the edgy stones, the thistles and the thorns
    paved for us by coldhearted scorns

    We feel total abandonment and rejection
    we don’t feel any compassionate affection
    we CRY OUT
    L O U D

    Father, why? Have You forsaken us ?
    satan uses even his blunderbuss
    to annihilate us, bringing us to despair
    “he can’t touch you, not even a single hair !”

    Offer Me all your troubles and pain
    I will change it into eternal gain
    not only for you, but for many in need
    of conversion, salvation, waiting to be freed

    I see everything, I know everything about you
    My children, I will never forsake you My beloved crew
    but I need souls who willingly, freely sacrifice
    and offer their sufferings so souls can win the price

    Take courage, My little ones, it’s only a short time
    I love you, I love you, You are so much Mine
    Your Father will NEVER abandon you, NEVER EVER
    especially NOT in these times of dangerous stormy weather.
    I love you so much, Your Jesus.

  • Republicans BETTER get a spine and STOP more disaster.

  • PB

    As long as you all cling to this fake and distracting Left vs Right paradigm (as your media owners and politicians want you to do) then nothing can change. You are a pack of political Pavlov’s dogs, so easily operated. Obama didn’t do this in isolation. The criminality runs deep and crosses party lines. You know its true but…..Left vs Right is so much more fun isn’t it. And easier too. No thinking required.

  • Peaceangel

    You are not mistaken and the Clintons alone have killed more than a hundred people for many of the same reasons and for some much shadier reasons.

  • Peace Angel

    It’s a New world order and disarmament is the next big threat.

    In every capital city in the US on

    FEB 8th protests are being held to fight disarmament.

    The NDAA act already allows them to take our guns if they want and to detain a US citizen indefinitely without the right to trial or counsel or even a phone call, just like Brandon Raub and the 20,000 other “missing” Virginians and US former military nationwide who are disappearing at a rapid rate everywhere.

    The NDAA act labels all former military as “psychotic” and “a threat to national security.”

    When they come to take you to the FEMA camps you will want to be able to use your gun to “choose” not to go.

  • Edmund Geswein

    I didn’t vote for him the first time or the second. He seemed phony right from the start. I’m not very optimistic about the next four years. I wish Romney would have got in. He may have not been perfect, but he probably would have been better.

  • Bob

    I just hope the United States is still in tact in 2016!

  • trojanguy

    Americans better be prepared for the Second American Revolution and/or Civil War that is rapidly approaching. Unfortunately, millions will die in the chaos and insanity that will ensue. However, I’m hopeful that the country that emerges on the other side of the dark days, will be a better one for the remaining Americans.


    The end of the United States as a free country.

  • Sallyfrmdvalley

    America is SCREWED thanks to this friggin IDIOT!!!!

  • Gregg

    Don’t ever forget one thing… Obama and a great portion of his appointees either were in the weather underground or heavily involved in it. Their entire goal was to overthrow the government in protest of U.S. actions in Viet Nam and elsewhere. Later, those who were in the group disbanded and then changed their policies over to a socialist agenda. Their goal was and still is to completely dismantle the economy and bring about socialist policies and communist ideals. Their entire position is that Americans are too stupid to rule themselves or even have a say in governmental policies.
    100 or so years ago, the government at the time decided that the way to consolidate power was to make the people completely dependent upon the government through entitlements and hand-outs. Does that sound anything like the dirge we have all been shuffling along to?
    People, we are not facing an Obama, Clinton, Bush, etc. decline in anything. What is being done with our country goes way back to before WWI. The purpose of even today’s wars is to keep the economy just barely afloat so that when the wars fail to provide economic backbone any longer, the economy will fall like a house of cards and the power hungry government will be there to collect all the bruised and bleeding people under a socialist regime headed by a dictator comprised of many individuals. The system is the dictator right now and we are living under it’s heavy boot.
    The only way out of this mess is to stand firm, as a unified people, and say “Enough is enough.” It isn’t a group of sissified cowards that are going to talk the government into being better. It’s going to take a unified country that will take a stand against tyranny wherever it rears it’s ugly head and declare that we will not be forced into giving up our liberties so that some narcissistic politicians can live a life of luxury and exemption from the draconian laws they impose upon their subjects. The time has come when peaceful protest by refusing to adhere to unconstitutional laws should be our battle cry of the hour!

  • tommyc

    Problem is the dumbed down public,television has become a gaggle of mindless,voyeristic shows is prime example

  • joe

    higher deficits easily financed at record low interest rates due to artificial excess demand from the feds bond purchases with printed money will eventually lead to inflation and a huge bond devaluation on the feds holdings as well as other US dollars will greatly reduce real wealth and wage, which will greatly reduce consumption, negative gdp, and reduced tax revenue

  • Zeb3065

    4 More years will undoubtedly put the USA exactly where the globalists want us to be Broke,destitute,dependent on socialist policies,and prepared for the chip in our wrist or forehead as the Bible explains the end would look like. If you do the research biblically speaking, you will find that all the prophesies in the Bible are coming true right before everyones eyes. Obamanation is not God nor do I believe he is the Anti-Christ, he is merely a puppet being used by the global elite to usher in one world govt, currency, and the real Anti-Christ coming on the scene to supposedly have the fix for the condition of the world at the time he comes in. Things have to get really bad before people will allow themselves to do things they never thought they would like worship a man versus the one true God Jehova. Google RFID2014 and see for yourself what I saw then tell me I am crazy.

    I grew up i the 50’s and completed my Master’s Degree i 1960. EVERYTHING has been changing at an alarming rate and direction. My undergraduate alma mater, like most of academia is trying for diversity. The two most recent speakers were Gwen Ifill and Cornel West. That is not diversity of opinion . While imperfect as we are, we improved many things — including civil rights and the acceptance of feminism and so forth. The collateral damage has been huge as our universities teach dogma, revise history and ignore what the core ingredients have been underlying our development. Asked to choose between capitalism, socialism and communism, the young person will flip a coin between the last two. Our key component of our society has been devastated, Families are weakened by poor economic opportunities, excessive dependencies on the mystic hand of government, and lousy education, However, we are now not one people, but a collection of “isms.” Our Constitution and how we were founded are “not relevant” to today’s situations. So we do not rely on what made us what we were and we have become something that is far less than we might have been.
    “If it isn’t broken don’t fix it” has a corollary which is “fix it if it is broken.” Oh beautiful for spacious land we have not tried to stay a true course and we are not willing to fix ourselves. Certainly we can not rely on the big and clumsy and misguided hand of government at all levels to fix us. A motto of “FORWARD” is appropriate if the forward direction that is chosen is consistent with who we are and what we were as a foundation and concept so we move forward to A DIFFERENT PLACE that is better and not a distortion of our values, and makes choices using concepts that ACTUALLY WORK.

    Initially we were trying to take care of about 30 million that had no healthcare, A portion of them were between jobs so COBRA was initiated. The remainder included poor but also young people that did not feel the need for coverage because they were young and healthy. That ended up breaking up an existing system and covering and/or affecting 100% of the population. Guess what? There are projected to be 30 million persons uncovered by the “all inclusive” health plan adopted. Bait and switch? Pass it so it can be read to find out what is in it! Careless analysis and governance dealing with every one and a huge number of workers and facilities. For what? To meet the long sought after goal of universal healthcare. It does not matter that it will throw the baby out with the bath water. It does not matter that there were better solutions possible. It does not matter that there was a DIVERSITY of opinion and solutIons. This type of diversity is not what our NOW unbalanced society and government is seeking or is capable of providing. The lack of individual responsibility and the sustainability of another huge entitlement are secondary or worse to the objectives of our leaders in religious, educational and governmental institutions. We have lost our way. What we did before that worked is “not good enough” or right for the future. So the question is not just forward, but to where and for what purposes. Power, as in absolute, corrupts and it has made some powerful and unfortunately it has made the citizen for which the Revolutionary War and the Civil War and much more were waged an almost casual victim of his approaching serfdom. Can it be changed? By whom and for whom? Not too optimistic 4consideraton2

    Because Obama’s decisions take effect immediately after getting into office, right? There’s nothing left over from the previous administration that is just continuing.
