We need a Change...

Considering "Hope and Change have failed, we need to find our next President from those running against Mr Obama. Even liberal commentators, such as Maureen Dowd are turning against the President as they recognize his lack of ability...

President Barack Obama wanted Congress to pass a variety of trade-related proposals, and he didn’t want to have to rely on Republican votes in order to see that happen. He lobbied his fellow Democrats in favor of trade, and he lobbied them hard. In the end, it wasn’t enough. On Friday, the president endured a stern censure from the very member of the party for whom he once served as a savior. Barack Obama’s presidency is all but over. It’s Hillary Clinton’s party now, but she does not seem inclined to lead it so much as to emerge as its supervisor by default and through a process of attrition. She is not in a hurry to rush that process, and there is no alternative Democratic leader waiting in the wings. Inadvertently, what House Democrats did on Friday was to decapitate their own party.

From the New York Post...

Friday’s rotten news guaranteed that the top issue of the 2016 race for the White House will be the economy. The question is whether the Republicans can come up with a prescription that beats Hillary Clinton’s message of Obamanomics Lite.

We yield to no one in our contempt for President Obama’s (mis)management of foreign policy, a litany of woes in which Clinton is fully complicit. But that’s not going to be front-and-center in voters’ minds.

Friday’s numbers show that the US economy contracted in the year’s first quarter. If the second quarter winds up a bit worse than early estimates put it, then the nation’s officially back in recession.

Did they just say recession?

Did you know this...

The war on coal is not just political rhetoric, or a paranoid fantasy concocted by rapacious polluters. It’s real and it’s relentless. Over the past five years, it has killed a coal-fired power plant every 10 days. It has quietly transformed the U.S. electric grid and the global climate debate.

The industry and its supporters use “war on coal” as shorthand for a ferocious assault by a hostile White House, but the real war on coal is not primarily an Obama war, or even a Washington war. It’s a guerrilla war. The front lines are not at the Environmental Protection Agency or the Supreme Court. If you want to see how the fossil fuel that once powered most of the country is being battered by enemy forces, you have to watch state and local hearings where utility commissions and other obscure governing bodies debate individual coal plants. You probably won’t find much drama. You’ll definitely find lawyers from the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign.

It's time to demand the truth...

If Congress really wants to get to the bottom of Hillary Clinton’s missing Benghazi and pay-to-play emails, it should call her consigliere Cheryl D. Mills to testify — under oath, and under the klieg lights.

A hearing featuring Clinton will be a wasted show trial with a lot of political grandstanding.

But Mills, who served as the former secretary of state’s chief of staff and counselor, knows where the bodies are buried. After all, Hillary tasked her with “identifying and preserving all emails that could potentially be federal records.”

And, presumably, deleting.

Mills has a long track record of hiding Clinton documents.

Good!

In the past five years, roughly a dozen states have enacted laws barring local governments from requiring businesses to provide paid sick leave to employees. The number of states banning local minimum wages has grown to 15. And while oil-rich states such as Texas and Oklahoma are pursuing bills banning local restrictions on drilling, other states where agriculture is big business have been banning local limitations on the types of seeds sown for crops.

It seems no issue is too small for businesses to take to capitol halls.

And, just why do cities believe they can take our freedoms away? It has to change!!!

Those who claim (white) racism is the root cause of the rioting in Baltimore, or make excuses for the rioters, have much to answer for.

Democrats fan racism among blacks to keep their stranglehold on the black vote, argued radio talk show host Larry Elder, who is black. Tell people they are victims, and they’ll act like victims, he said.

Former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla, who is black, said “a culture of dependency as promulgated by the race baiters and new plantation overseers of the inner city” is chiefly to blame.

Failed liberal policies have “mired black people in generational poverty, kept their kids in failing schools, chronically unemployed, they can’t find meaningful work, having to live in crime-infested neighborhoods,” said Milwaukee County (Wisconsin) Sheriff David Clarke, a Democrat who is black.

To change things, all three pointed out, blacks must stop voting for the politicians and policies which have failed them.

Yep!

Jack Kelly:

“The system” failed the poor blacks of west Baltimore, said many of the talking (and mostly empty) heads on cable TV. There’s some truth to that. Crime and unemployment are sky high. Schools are awful. Social service agency chieftains do more to promote their own welfare than that of the community.

Ms. Rawlings-Blake is a Democrat. So are all 15 members of the city council. Baltimore hasn’t had a Republican mayor since Theodore McKeldin left office in 1967. Maryland has had just two Republican governors since 1969. Democrats have controlled both houses of the legislature since 1992. “The system” that has failed poor blacks in Baltimore was designed and administered by Democrats.

Certainly, most major cities need to step back and see how they need to change!

From the comments on YSU story:

"I've decided to come out of the closet as a homophobe. It's a genetic condition that causes discomfort at the sight or thought of two males kissing. I can't help who I am. I was born this way. No amount of prayer or counseling will change who I am. Being a homophobe is not a choice or a result of my environment. Don't ever say being a homophobe is a choice. Some choose to reject me for being a homophobe, I call them homophobephobes. They are disgusting bigots who aren't worth my time. I'm here and I live in fear!"

There ya go!

HEADLINE: Straight pride fliers removed from YSU campus

"YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Leaders with the Student Government Association at Youngstown State University said they decided to act quickly this week when posters showed up on campus promoting “Straight Pride” week next month.

The posters contained profanity, which our station has blurred for viewers. The posters promote the event as a way of not showing the differences between students."

" “If we’re doing our job right, people tip.”"

Some people are too cheap to tip.

Imagine that, a Republican siding with entitlement fast food employees. Anything for a vote.

The manager of an Ohio Chipotle restaurant on Wednesday said Hillary didn’t drop money in the tip jar during her visit earlier this week.

Bloomberg reported that Charles Wright, manager of Chipotle’s Maumee, Ohio, location, said Clinton left no change after placing her order Monday afternoon.

“Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left,” Wright said of the Democrat candidate’s spending.

Clinton, who was on her way to Iowa, visited the Maumee franchise during its afternoon lunch rush alongside Huma Abedin, the vice chair of her presidential campaign. Employees did not recognize either woman. “We get a bunch of tips,” Wright, a GOP voter, said of his store’s typical business. “If we’re doing our job right, people tip.”

Wright said the pair ordered a chicken burrito bowl, a chicken salad, a blackberry Izzy & a pop. After an employee rang them up, he added, Clinton did not cover the final total.

“The other lady had to pay."

Neither tipped...

Why doesn't he stop?

The Obama administration has issued more than half a million new Social Security Numbers (SSN) to illegal immigrants granted amnesty under President Obama’s Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals program.

In a letter to Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ben Sasse (R-NE), exclusively obtained by Breitbart News, the Social Security Administration (SSA) reveals that by the end of Fiscal Year 2014 the Obama administration “had issued approximately 541,000 original SSNs to individuals authorized to work under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy since its inception” in 2012.

The administration said it did not maintain a count of the number of individuals who applied but were denied an SSN.

While Catholics have been swing voters since Nixon’s second term, white Catholics are now identifying as Republican by historic margins. According to the most recent polling from the Pew Research Center, 53% of white Catholics now favor the GOP, versus 39% who favor the Democrats—the largest point spread in the history of the Pew poll. And for the first time, white Catholics are more Republican than the voting group usually considered the ultimate Republicans: white Protestants.

These are ominous signs for the Democrats, evincing a growing allegiance with the Republican Party that has long-term implications.

So why are white Catholics abandoning the Democratic Party? There are very good reasons at play. Conservative bishops have been going so far as to argue that “good” Catholics can’t vote for Democrats because of their support for abortion rights and, more recently, same-sex marriage — which has resulted in an increased politicization of the church.

Obama hasn't won an overreach court battle yet, so why does he keep trying to be king?

In the weeks since Obama's power play was put on hold, the White House has expressed confidence that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans would overturn Hanen's decision.

However, the White House hasn't received good legal news of late.

On Friday, that appeals court rejected the Justice Department's attempt to lift the hold on Obama's immigration programs. Though procedural, that development could bode poorly for when the court in New Orleans hears a broader appeal to the ruling, putting the brakes on a centerpiece of the president's second-term agenda.

But if you listen to the President, we're living in the best of times...

It's not only the just-released University of Michigan consumer confidence report and February retail sales on Thursday (3/13/2015) that surprised economists and investors with another dose of underwhelming news. Overall, U.S. economic data have been falling short of prognosticators' expectations by the most in six years.

The Bloomberg ECO U.S. Surprise Index, which measures whether data beat or miss forecasts, fell to the lowest since 2009, when the nation was in the deepest recession since the Great Depression.

We need a change, and it can't come too soon!
