Is Obama Our Bernie Madoff?

By Wayne Allyn Root

Can you imagine investing your life savings with Bernie Madoff now - knowing what you know? Don't laugh. Obama is orchestrating one of the great Ponzi schemes in history. Madoff couldn't have done it any better.

Let's look at the similarities. It's obvious Obama believes he has the answers to every problem, refuses to even listen to opposing viewpoints, and is unwilling to admit mistakes or apologize. Sound familiar? Obama is a Bernie Madoff - a man who thinks he is the "Master of the Universe" and the rest of us are just circling around in his orbit, serving at his pleasure.

Like Madoff, he is charming, flattering, has the gift of gab, and could sell ice to Eskimos. Obama has sold the country on the idea that a man who knows nothing about business, has never created a single job and has never run even a lemonade stand, can run the world's biggest economy. Not only has Obama never run so much as a lemonade stand, my guess is he was the kid who called City Hall to complain about a six-year-old running a lemonade stand without a government license. Now we've entrusted him with the entire U.S. economy in the midst of the worst economic crisis since The Great Depression.

Let's get back to the question: "Would you trust your life savings with Bernie Madoff now - knowing what you know?" We know the government fails miserably at everything it does - the post office, Social Security, Amtrak, to name just a few examples. The government is so inept it even failed running a brothel in Nevada and New York State just declared government run OTB (Off Track Betting) bankrupt. Only the government could lose money on prostitution and gambling! [more...]

Unemployed and Out of Luck: Numbers Don’t Lie

By Bill Glynn

Anyone can stand up and say "You Lie!" The truth is the numbers speak for themselves. We have all watched the housing depression and wealth being wiped out. We all knew unemployment would continue to rise and have a dramatic impact on the economy ongoing. The new 200,000+ unemployed just adds to the pain. The second wave is coming. Inflation will take a lead role in agitating the economy. Gas prices are high and approaching $3 a gallon again. While food and other products remain relatively stable the basics are even getting out of reach for many. It’s a vicious cycle. The more people that tighten their belts or are losing weight quickly, the less they can purchase. The 'Cash for Clunkers' is over and Chrysler may not even make it a year. Although politics and international affairs have overshadowed or even distracted the economic news, I feel it is time again to put attention back on America’s internal affairs. [more...]

Unemployment Continues to Skyrocket: More Proof that Big Government is Too Big to Succeed

By Wayne Allyn Root

Obama Loses His Weapon of Mass Distraction: His Olympic Dream Turns to Nightmare...

He Desperately Needed Olympics to Distract the Masses from Deepening Economic Disaster

Experts love to say that certain big companies and banks are "too big to fail." The reality is our federal government is too big to succeed. It's all going down in flames for Obama - "the anointed one." The economy continues to crumble. Unemployment continues to rise (another 200,000+ announced today). The full truthful unemployment picture is now at a unimaginable 17%. Sales of cars - without the "Cash for Clunkers" giveaway - continue to collapse. Banking experts know that a new wave of residential housing foreclosures is on the way. Worse, a complete collapse of commercial real estate is starting, as landlords of office buildings, strip malls, and shopping centers hand the keys to banks. How do I know? It's happening now in Las Vegas - and we all know "what happens in Vegas, doesn't stay in Vegas." Consumer spending is getting worse - small business owner friends of mine report sales are dropping off a cliff - the worst they've seen yet in this 2-year depression. [more...]
