Russian Deputy PM Laughs at Obama's Sanctions

Russian Deputy PM Laughs at Obama's Sanctions | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
MOSCOW – Russia’s deputy prime minister laughed off President Obama’s sanction against him today  asking “Comrade @BarackObama” if “some prankster” came up with the list. The Obama administration hit 11 Russian and Ukrainian officials with sanctions today as punishment for Russia’s support of Crimea’s referendum. Among them: aides to President Vladimir Putin, a top government official, senior lawmakers, Crimean officials, the ousted president of Ukraine, and a Ukrainian politician and businessman allegedly tied to violence against protesters in Kiev. It remains to be seen whether the sanctions will dissuade Russia from annexing Crimea, but one an early clue that they…
Skip Stein's insight:

Just about every Obama policy, legislation he and his administration has done is in total disaster.  His weakness as a person, lack of integrity and his arrogance is a dramatic abuse of his Office.  He wants to be 'Mr. Nice Guy' to the world and they spit in his face as the weakling he is.  He is destroying the American economy with his economic policies and has destroyed American strength throughout the World.  What an unmitigated disaster.  He has no clue what he is doing and no one in his administration does either.  Regan's "Peace Through Strength" and 'Trust But Verify" were simple but extremely effective policy.  Obama's of surrender and draw idiotic lines in the sand have made US look weak and totally ineffective on the World stage.

Mike Whitney - Obama Backs Down on Crimea

Skip Stein's insight:

Quote: "Can you believe it? The goofy Obama team wants the public to believe that the whole “constitutional reform”-thing was their idea so people don’t notice that the clunker administration and President Featherweight have run up the white flag and headed for the hills. This is classic Barack “lead from behind” Obama trying to make a full-blown retreat look like a victory."

Corporate Cash Abroad Rises $206 Billion as Multinationals Avoid Taxes

Corporate Cash Abroad Rises $206 Billion as Multinationals Avoid Taxes | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
The largest U.S.-based companies added $206 billion to their stockpiles of offshore profits last year, parking earnings in low-tax countries until Congress gives them a reason not to.
Skip Stein's insight:

Obama's insane fiscal policies are killing jobs and eliminating opportunities in the USA for economic growth.  The high corporate tax structures encourage companies to keep foreign profits OUT of the USA; further limiting local/national growth and corporate investment.  Now with his idiotic mandate of overtime for previously exempt workers, companies will further reduce hours/staff to limit expenses.  This idiot is single handedly destroying OUR Economy and the corrupt congress sits there with their thumbs in their butts, letting Obama totally abuse the Executive Branch authority.  What happened to OUR CONSTITUTION and the Checks & Balances built in.  Time to elect some congress people who will actually DO THEIR JOBS and follow their Oath of Office!  Remember in November!  The revolution starts now!

Our doom will come sci-fi-style, NASA-funded study says

Our doom will come sci-fi-style, NASA-funded study says | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Uh-oh. The '1 Percent' might just lead to the complete collapse of civilization, according to a study sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. But all hope is not lost. Read this article by Michael Franco on CNET.
Skip Stein's insight:

This difference with the 1% thing is a result of gross negligence in our political structure, coupled with greed/graft/corruption.  The liberal Elites (most are very rich but decry other's wealth) have created this unbalance in society by disabling the Free Markets.  Taking bribes, and other 'contributions' from corrupt corporations (big agribusiness, pharmaceuticals, health care, insurance, automotive etc.) they have destroyed the basic workings of the Free Enterprise System.  Free Enterprise depends on FREE MARKETS and with all the unbalanced rules, regulations and other crap, it is almost impossible for the middle class hard working entrepreneurs to gain a foothold.

 

It is the illegal and Unconstitutional actions of the Washington Elte that is destroying Our Great Country and it's economy.  Illegal actions, regulations that only favor the massive global corporations and suppress the small and local/regional businesses created by corrupt politicians and their masters in the Corporate Lobbies, have just about done US in.  But NOT QUITE YET.  There is still time to REVOLT and stop doing business with these people, vote the corrupt out of office.  These global corporations depend on YOUR MONEY to let them survive and since they don't quite Control everything yet, we can just refuse to purchase their products, make things last longer and starve the bastards out!

 

Do business with LOCAL and REGIONAL businesses and companies.  Spurn the massive multi-national global conglomerates.  Learn how to grow some of your own food and find a local (preferably organic) farmer.  Support YOUR neighbours!

Skip Stein's insight:

Detroit is the poster child for failed liberal agenda's and now the People are fleeing entire States where liberals rule.  The liberal policies of the past 50 years have been an utter disaster, capped by Obama and Obamacare. Maybe it was the final straw but People are finally realizing that big government and the bureaucracies they spawn have been destroying America for decades.  Time for CHANGE all right, focus on November elections to FIRE as many liberals and their policies as possible.  Elect Constitutional Conservatives, regardless of party!

EDITORIAL: The Star-Spangled ban

EDITORIAL: The Star-Spangled ban | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Old Glory just can’t catch a break in the courts. Judges have said you can do anything with the American flag, burn it, step on it, spit on it. Twenty-five years ago the Supreme Court upheld the First Amendment right of the “Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade” to set fire to a stolen flag as an expression of free speech. Last week, an appellate court in San Francisco (naturally) decided that kids can’t wear a T-shirt with the Stars and Stripes on it lest it offend someone.
Skip Stein's insight:

If you don't like Our Flag, then get the hell our of Our Country!  This political correctness crap has gone on too long and way too far.  The still IS a Free Country (well for the most part) do anyone who doesn't like it Can LEAVE!

Skip Stein's insight:

The Young People are waking UP.  They see how the corruption in Washington has co-opted their very future.  They are rejecting overbearing and intrusive Federal Government policies.  The traditional GOP and business as usual will garner less and less support as it has proven ineffective and counter productive.  The refusal of the GOP leadership to fully embrace the Tea Party will doom them.  People are just fed up with the Massive bureaucracy that lies to and cheats it's citizens and oppresses them with massive Federal Regulations that does little good to Protect Our Nation or help anyone; except the corrupt bureaucrats.  Time to end it now; beginning in November, vote for Constitutional Conservatives; no matter what party!

Watch: Detroit Police Chief Goes All Common Sense on Guns, Puts Thugs on Notice

Watch: Detroit Police Chief Goes All Common Sense on Guns, Puts Thugs on Notice | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Detroit Police Chief James Craig shared plenty of common sense wisdom on guns in a recent interview with WDIV-TV. Even though plenty of anti-gun city officials are on record urging residents to call the police rather than use a firearm, Craig knows that is not always a viable option.
Skip Stein's insight:

Finally someone who has a bit of common sense?   Detroit has been controlled by criminals and thugs for decades; maybe it is time for the populace to finally stand up and protect themselves!  When I grew up near Detroit (over 60 years ago!), I took arms/rifle shooting classes every Saturday morning at the local police range.  I doubt that is happening much now?  I was taught weapons safety, how to shoot and safely handle a variety of weapons (starting with BB guns!).  Now I am licensed to safely carry a 9mm and have several defensive arms.
