Liberals Should Celebrate ISIS as Most Perfect Non-Profit Ever Begun

The left should be celebrating the ISIS terrorists as the perfect example of the sort of non-profit enterprise the virtues of which they constantly extol. In fact, led by the Obviator In Chief in Washington, since leftists are refusing to call ISIS what they are, maybe they are celebrating them after all?

Remember back in 2008 when Michelle Obama said that young people should not be so greedy as to get jobs in corporate America? Instead she instead America’s youngsters should find work at a non-profit. At a speech in Zanesville, Ohio, Michelle urged young people to make the choice “to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry,” and darn it if ISIS didn’t take up on her challenge.

President Obama even once called his job working for a company as “working for the enemy” because of all that icky money and profits.

Illinois’ Slow Start to Fracking Still Faced Stiff Resistance

Hes is my second piece at the Watchdog…

Even as fracking finally came to Illinois, it came at the worst time in the market for oil. This advancement, however, was not made easily. Resistance to the measure was heavy, replete with tough regulations.

In 2013, after then-Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill authorizing fracking, many hoped that the new rules would bring much-needed jobs to a state with one of the worst economies and job climates in the country.

But in recent months the price of oil collapsed, making fracking operations inside the U.S. much less profitable. For Illinois, it has been nearly too late to cash in. Could Illinois have avoided being too late to profit off of fracking?

Things could have gotten off to a better start. The Democrat-led state legislature dragged its feet on regulations and implementation for over a year and a half. By the time regulations were finished, the boom was on the wane….

Gallup Polling Org Rips Obama’s Fake Recovery As Jobless

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jim Clifton, the CEO of the Gallup polling group, recently published a huge slam on Obama’s fake economic recover that he sharply titled, “The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment.” In the piece he exposes something that we conservatives have been talking about for years, namely that Obama’s unemployment figures are nothing but lies and that the low, low labor participation rate proves that we have had no increase in jobs.

His piece starts somewhat absurdly saying that even “the smartest and most educated among us” don’t know that Obama’s unemployment rate reports are “extremely misleading.”

We can quibble with that because conservatives have been pointing this out since two years after Obama came to office. But, still, it’s good that the rest of the “educated” are catching up and finally starting to understand the lies that Obama is selling as an economic recovery.

Anyway, that aside, Clifton notes that the number of jobs has not really increased at all because there are millions who have simply stopped trying to find work and are seemingly permanently jobless. This is the labor participation rate and it is shockingly dismal.

Here is how Clifton put it:

Report: Every Business Started by Al Sharpton Closed for Non-Payment of Taxes

February 2, 2015 | Filed Under Al Sharpton, Anti-Americanism, Business, Capitalism, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government Corruption, Liberals, Progressives, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

It has been discovered that all the businesses that race-baiter and MSNBC talking head Al Sharpton has started has been closed because of non-payment of taxes.

In the report at National Review by Jillian Kay Melchior, it was revealed that every for-profit company Sharpton has started has been forcibly shut down by one tax jurisdiction or another because he never paid his taxes.

Records show that Sharpton’s beleaguered for-profit entities often overlap and intertwine, some sharing ties with the reverend’s nonprofit organization, National Action Network. Their financial records are copious, confusing, and sometimes outright bizarre, and together, they depict persistent financial woes for Sharpton, who also personally owes New York State nearly $596,000, according to active tax warrants.

“He clearly appears — based on the information that’s available to us — to have a history of noncompliance with tax obligations,” says Bernadette Schopfer, the director of taxation at New York’s Maier Markey & Justic, a certified public-accounting firm that has had no dealings with Sharpton or National Action Network. “It appears that [Sharpton] does not file [taxes for his businesses], and then opens up something else. At all the entities we see he has opened up, he has not been compliant with the obligations of the owner of a business. . . . He’s either willful in his behavior, or he’s just sloppy.”

But it is the same with his personal taxes, too. It is well known that he owes at least $4.5 million in back taxes that he still has not paid nor made any provisions to pay.

If you are wondering which team a good conservative should root for during Sunday’s Super Bowl, this video has your answer: don’t root or the socialist Seahawks.

No it’s not because “Patriots” is more patriotic. No, it’s not even because the Seahawks are from a left-wing state–at least not merely for that reason.

So, why root for the Patriots? Here’s why a free market conservative should oppose the Seahawks…

Now, note that I said it wasn’t merely because the Seahawks come from a state filled with lily-livered liberals, but then again the whole unfortunate stadium deal occurred because its lily-livered liberals.

Still…. you get the point.

Obama AG Nominee Insists Illegals Have a ‘Right To Work’ In The USA

On Wednesday Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite the fact that they are breaking our immigration laws and are essentially criminals in this country.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at the Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order an amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.

“The president’s actions,” Sessions said, “would give people who came here unlawfully the right to work, the right to participate in Social Security and Medicare, when Congress has not done that. Allows them to stay for at least a period lawfully. Let me ask you this, in the workplace of American today when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest percentage of Americans working, who has more right to a job in this country, a lawful immigrant who’s here–a green card holder–or a citizen, or a person who entered the country unlawfully?”

In reply Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite our current employment and immigration laws.

Illegals Don’t Want to be Americans, So Keep Them Out

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the things that the far left always says to excuse lawbreaking illegal immigrants is that they just want to be “like Americans” and attain the American dream just like immigrants to the US always have. This, however, is a lie. Many immigrants no longer have any desire to become Americans and just want our money so they can send it back home.

The old American dream was the promise that a “foreigner” could immigrant to the US, become a citizen, get a job, save their money, and make a life for them and more especially for their children.

For many of these people it was a special mark of pride to learn English and then learn enough about American history and its system of government to pass the citizenship test in order to become an official naturalized American.

This is what Democrats are invoking when they try to excuse lawbreaking illegals today. They claim that immigrants today are exactly the same as those of all our yesteryears.

But even the former president of Mexico is here to disabuse Democrats of this lie.

The folks at the Grabien video service has taken the time to track all Obama’s promises made during his past State of the Union speeches and found that 112 of his promises have gone unkept.

From 2009 to 2014, Obama has made scores of promises at his SOTU blatherings, but few of his promises have been fulfilled.

In fact, Obama has the worst record of getting what he wants at the SOTU since Gerald Ford!

Grabien didn’t just create a montage video of the failed promises, but they also took the time to write them all out.

How Al Sharpton Rakes in Millions Not to Call Corporations ‘Racist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

According to a new investigative article, Al Sharpton has spent years shaking down corporations essentially for protection money supplied to him so that he would avoid calling them “racists,” or setting up boycotts, and creating uncomfortable public relations nightmares.

An extensive piece in the New York Post on Sunday traced Sharpton’s practice of taking money in exchange for his silence. The MSNBC host, the Post said, has taken millions not to attack corporations for their purported racism.

“Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him,” Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal Policy Center (NLPC) told the paper. “Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns.”

Only a few weeks ago, the National Legal & Policy Center published an open letter to Walmart asking the nation’s largest retailer to stop funding Sharpton’s National Action Network.

Differences Between Civil Rights Movement of 1963 and Today’s Illicit Nonsense is Stark

Comparing the wholly American and sensible demands issued by the real civil rights movement during the event that saw Martin Luther King deliver his “Dream” speech in August of 1963 to the mishmash of self aggrandizing nonsense belched forth by today’s “BlackLivesMatter “movement” reveals a startling difference and exposes today’s protesters to be disjointed, illogical, filled and with race-hate not to mention insensate and childish.

When King mounted the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in that great American moment to begin to change forever how Americans treated its black citizens he didn’t do so alone. He stepped out to give his soaring “I Have a Dream” speech backed by hundreds of key members of the burgeoning civil rights movement, organizers who themselves were backed by hundreds of thousands of Americans, black and white, spread all across the country.

Before that great rally in Washington in 1963, the civil rights movement had already coalesced into a concerted effort replete with demands that they hoped would bring relief to millions of Americans yearning to be as free as the rest of the country.

Government Workers Should NEVER Be Allowed a Union

What are the best jobs on average in California? Apparently being a government worker. Infuriatingly, government workers live far better, have higher salaries, retire earlier and have better benefits than most in the private sector even though, like leeches, these same government workers live off the taxpayer.

The worst of all worlds for the taxpayer is a government union. Government unions do nothing whatever for the very people paying the bills. They do not improve services, they don’t professionalize workers, and they wildly grow the waste of tax dollars. Worse, government unions give public servants higher salaries, richer benefits, and earlier retirement dates than the taxpayers footing the bills.

Even the patron Saint of the liberal left, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was adamant that government workers should never be allowed to unionize. FDR thought it was “unthinkable and intolerable” to have a government workers union.

It’s for good reason, too. Government workers do not create the profits that might help enrich benefits. Whenever government unions get raises it simply means that taxpayers have to pay more to make up the difference.

Time to Pressure the Corporations That Donate to Cop-Murdering Al Sharpton’s National Action Network

Al Sharpton is able to fly around the country advocating for violent protests and the murder of cops because many of the nation’s top corporations have fallen for his shakedown efforts and give him millions to fund his activities. It is time to pressure these corporations to stop finding this charlatan’s efforts.

Did you know that Walmart gives Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) millions every year? So does beer giant Anheuser-Busch. And so do Macy’s and drug company Pfizer. And it’s time they all stop doing so.

These companies have all been afraid of seeming like “racists” for any refusal to donate millions to NAN, but now that Sharpton has become a part of the murder of several cops, isn’t it time that these same corporations fear being linked to a pusher of violence?

A recent article in The New York Post listed a series of large national companies that donate money to Sharpton’s NAN.

Shep Smith is at it again, this time he was heard on his Fox News show lamenting how America will “ruin” Cuba now that Obama is opening up diplomatic relations with that island nation. No, seriously. That is exactly what he said. This idiot really needs to go work for the commies at MSNBC.

So, we have a nation that has been oppressed for 50 years, a nation where even toothpaste and toilet paper is a luxury that most there can’t afford. We have a nation where any questioning of the government results in torture and murder. But with the possibility of the US initiating closer relations with that beleaguered nation, Shep Smith is now worried that contact with the USA will be bad for the Cuban people? Really, Shep?!

After sonorously noting how he paid $4 for a liter of his favorite Cuban booze last time he visited there, Shep’s cohost noted that there will be an “onrush” of American businesses that will want to get down into the Cuban market… though I don’t know why anyone would assume there even is a Cuban market or that Cubans have money to spend.

The New Budget Bill: Still Funds Obamacare, Still Bans Abortion Spending, Still Bans Internet Taxes

The New nine-month budget bill called the CR/Omnibus spending bill is a $1.01 trillion spending bill that is over one thousand pages thick. But it takes care of spending for most of 2015 and one has to wonder why the Republicans pushed a spending bill that will prevent them from affecting spending for most of the entire first year they will be in control?

It is absurd that the GOP didn’t push a continuing resolution that only tides the government over for a few short months because next year the GOP will be in full control of both houses of Congress. Yet, the GOP was not just *sighing* and agreeing with this nine-month spending bill, GOP leadership was pushing it. This is a bill that will cut the GOP out from having any influence on spending for most of their first year they are in control.

Still, many of the hundreds of policy riders–little bits of instruction that affects spending–are good for the conservatives. Of course, some will upset Democrats and some Republicans.

Anyway, here are some of the riders of interest in the new budget bill (in no particular order):

Obamacare Fully Funded

The bill fully funds Obamacare, though it does put a limit to any growth in spending and cuts the budget by $10 million for the “death panel” board called the Independent Payment Advisory Board. It also does not give the IRS any new funding so that the taxing agency can implement the Affordable Care Act.

Clean Water Act

In a victory for farmers, the spending bill will prevent the EPA from taking upon itself the power to regulate farm ponds and ditch water. This is also a victory for Republicans–not to mention the country!

EPA Funding Cut

Speaking of the EPA, its budget was cut by $60 million over last year’s budget. The EPA will get $8.1 billion. This is another decrease. Since 2010 the agency has lost 21 percent of its budget.

No Pot Legalization for Washington DC

The City Council of the District of Columbia will be prohibited from legalizing marijuana and will be forced to hew to the federal ban on pot. On the other hand, federal drug enforcement agencies and law groups will be prevented from interfering in state-based pot industries.

15,000 Wisconsin Teachers Tell Union to Get Lost

-By Warner Todd Huston

Unions are having a tough time of it in Wisconsin of late. Since Governor Scott Walker saved the state budget with his new union rules and since he gave workers a choice, Wisconsin’s teachers unions have been in steep decline and this year’s certification vote was further proof that workers don’t want unions.

Under Act 10 in Wisconsin, it is now the law that teachers unions have to be re-certified each year and to be recognized as a bargaining unit the unions must get 51% support from members.

Since Act 10, unions have found that members are very, very unhappy to be part of their organization and thousands of teachers are opting out. This year, nearly 15,000 public employee union members refused to vote for their union, and 25 more unions were decertified by a vote. That is 100 fewer unions than last year even applied for re-certification.

This brings the number of Wisconsin teachers unions to 285 state wide, down from 408 last year.

Obama was shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, at the suggestion and told Stephanopoulos that it would be “wrong” of a president to decide not to enforce tax law.

Labor Unions For Dummies

November 24, 2014 | Filed Under Budget, Business, Capitalism, Gary Krasner, Jobs, Pensions, Public Employees Unions, Unions | Comments Off

By Gary Krasner

Let me describe one larger point regarding public employee unions. It relates to the anti-competitiveness of unions generally, the same idea that Richard Epstein often writes about. But I’ll greatly simplify it for you.

Companies are not in business to make jobs. They’re in business to make profits. (It’s no different than when you invest your money.) Jobs are necessary to make profits.

Hiring labor is part of the cost of doing business. The object is to keep that cost down, but not to the extent that it will affect the performance of the company.

That means people who are capable and perform well are what businesses need, and it is why they compete with other companies to get such workers.

Example: In my profession, prepress computer operators who were fast and accurate could negotiate for higher wages. Through that reputation, they were in demand. Poor workers were not.

Such workers do not need unions. Mediocre and poor workers need unions. Unions benefit those who are the worst at their job.

Obamacare Architect Celebrates the Lack of Transparency in Obama’s Health Care Law: ‘Stupidity of American Voters’

And it was made that way on purpose.

Obama was in Illinois to stump for Democrat Congresswoman Cheri Bustos who we hope is beaten by Republican candidate Bobby Schilling in the Illinois 17th District.

According to the Quad City Times, Obama praised Illinois for being a job creator saying, “”And we are here to keep this state in the right direction. And this state is leading the nation in job creation.”

UNPRECEDENTED: Obama Orders Insurance Industry to Withhold New Prices Until AFTER Midterm Elections

-By Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama is again playing political games with our health insurance industry and has turned in another underhanded move against it by forcing insurance carriers, brokers and agents to withhold their 2015 prices until after the 2014 midterm elections are over all so that the news of higher prices won’t hurt Democrats on Election Day.

This means that customers looking to get new insurance or those wishing to scout new policies to see if they can get a better deal are not able to shop for insurance.

Before we get into that, though, millions of new cancellations will be hitting on January 1, 2015. Much of this news has gone under the radar as Democrats and their lapdog media are keeping this as quiet as possible.

There is also something different with these cancellations, something that has never happened before in the healthcare insurance industry. Past practice has always been that the next year’s new rates are released 60 days before the first day of the next year. But Obama has mandated that companies hold back on that normal practice so that he can shield Democrats at the polls.

Here is how insurance agent C. Steven Tucker explained it this weekend:

This year, for the first time in 20 years I can not even quote a replacement product because Barack Obama has issued a GAG ORDER to the health insurance industry instructing them not to disclose their January 2015 health insurance rates until after the mid-term elections. This is unprecedented. Normally health insurance premiums are released for public viewing 60 days before the January 1st effective date. Where are the reports on these cancellations and the gag order from NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN? The only news organization that I am aware of that has reported on any of this is the Fox News channel. I can guarantee you one thing, not one of my clients who received a cancellation notice is voting Democrat on Tuesday.

This is once again proof that healthcare is not about health for this most corrupt president in American history. It is politics all the way through for this man.

Your health doesn’t matter to Barack Obama. He cares only about what political benefit he can get from taking over our healthcare industry.

It is also proof that the health of Americans does not interest the news media, either. All they care about is how they can help Democrats.

But this is just a small example of what happens when you allow government to take over an industry like this. It stops being about what ever the industry is supposed to be about and becomes a mere political tool.

Finally, let us point out something else that is glaringly obvious. The GOP is in on this game. After all, you haven’t heard a word about this from any GOP candidate have you? They are clearly running interference for Obama on this by staying silent.

Hilarious: Hillary Sings Praises of Possible 2016 Rival, Socialist Elizabeth Warren

Hillary Clinton and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, both rumored to be in the hunt for the 2016 Democrat nomination for President, appeared at the same event last week prompting Clinton to praise Warren as a “passionate champion for working people.”

As one of the nation’s most well known Democrat women, Hillary Clinton is certainly expected to throw her hat in the ring for the 2016 Democrat nomination for President. But there is another up-and-coming woman of the (far, far) left who is dallying with the same decision. Senator Elizabeth Warren has slowly begun to soften her stance against running going from a solid “no” to a “we’ll see what happens.”

In April, Warren had told ABC that she was absolutely not running for president. But by October her stance had softened considerably.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Warren said that she has learned not to “be so sure what lies ahead.” This is quite a difference from her previous straight out statement of “I’m not running for president.”

Politico Claims it’s ‘Unclear’ if Colorado Healthcare Plan Cancellations are Fault of Obamacare

The Senate race in Colorado has begun to turn in favor of the Republicans over the last few months but that favor may grow as this week it was learned that some 22,000 citizens are losing their healthcare plans. But Politico claims it is “unclear” if those cancellations are a result of Obamacare.

On Friday, only weeks before voters go to the polls, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that 22,000 Coloradoans were losing their insurance plans this year and another 200,000 will likely lose theirs in 2015.

The announcement could not have come at a worse time for incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Udall whose campaign has recently begun to flounder in the face of a surging Republican opponent.

Surprising many in the Centennial State, Congressman Cory Gardner has jumped ahead of the long-time Senator and this massive wave of healthcare insurance policy cancellations could drive even more Republicans and independents to the polls next month.

In another example of why government unions should all be eliminated, two union operatives in the Illinois school system have been the happy recipients of million-dollar pensions–courtesy of the taxpayers–for teaching classes for only a single day.

Back in 2011 I wrote of union operatives Steven Preckwinkle and David Piccioli at the Illinois teachers union who both “taught” only one day in the Illinois school system and then went on to be union operatives for the rest of their careers that were supposedly in “education.” Yet despite their lack of actually educating anyone, both were still demanding to get huge, generous pensions for being “teachers.”

USA Falls to 12th Place in World Economic Freedom

In the year 2000 the USA ranked second on the Economic Freedom of the World report. Now, in 2014, the USA has fallen to 12th place.

That’s right, the country founded on capitalism and economic freedom has been steadily losing ground among the most free nations as our system declines into welfare dependency, government sponsored crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all but fascism), and big government, regulatory strangulation.

The CATO Institute puts out its annual report measuring the economic freedom of the nations of the world and this year the leader in global economic freedom is Hong Kong. The rest of the top ten are as follows: Singapore; New Zealand; Switzerland; Mauritius; United Arab Emirates; Canada; Australia; Jordan; and, tied for 10th is Chile and Finland.

And what of the United States?

The owner of an Arkansas gun range has announced that no Muslims are welcome at her shooting range because Islam “demands” that Muslims kill non-believers.

Jan Morgan, the owner of the Hot Springs, Arkansas-based Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range has said in a long post that she sees no reason why she has to open her business to people that want to kill her.

The Astroturf Attempt to Destroy Rush Limbaugh Exposed

October 2, 2014 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Business, Capitalism, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media Bias, Media Matters For America, Progressives, Rush Limbaugh, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

An attempt to destroy Rush Limbaugh through the intimidation of his advertisers has been exposed as the work of a small handful of activists at least one of whom works for the George Soros-funded, astroturf outfit Media Matters for America.

The effort to destroy Limbaugh dubbed “Stop Rush” was started in 2012 by Angelo Carusone, the vice president of the Soros-funded Media Matters website. Carusone intended the effort to be an adjunct to President Obama’s re-election campaign.

The Stop Rush campaign is presented to Limbaugh’s advertisers as an army of regular Americans incensed by Limbaugh’s purportedly “racist” on-air comments. This grassroots army is then purportedly enlisted to frighten advertisers on Limbaugh’s radio show into dumping their sponsorship.

But far from being an army of regular Americans joined together for a cause, an investigation into the group has shown that it is really just the efforts of 10 people. Joining paid media astroturfer Carusone is a Kent State University Professor and several women who seem intertwined with each other.

-By Warner Todd Huston

Traditionally, Republicans are supposed to be against the redistribution of wealth in the USA. But it seems times may be changing with at least three purportedly conservative leaders in Congress suddenly advocating for at least some income redistribution.

According to Fortune magazine three major congressional Republican leaders are floating plans that call for some sort of redistribution.

Republican Senators Mike Lee and Marco Rubio have recently proposed what they are calling a pro-family and pro-growth tax reform plan that would refigure tax rates from the current seven brackets to only two; 15 and 35 percent.
