Pravda Press Hiding Obama’s BiPolar Economy

-
Roanoke Times:
2-27-2016, Pg 6:  Economy begins 2016 strong : GDP = 1%
Strong!  Really?  After seven years after the Recession Ended the Obama Economy is generating 1% growth – and that’s strong?  Once again the Pravda Press busy insulting our intelligence!
The US economy is living up to Obama’s low expectations!  What a sad commentary!
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2015/01/obama-sotu-obama-defines-success-for.html
-
2-29-2016, Pg 1, 5: States reduce jobless benefits; Insurance funds depleted during recession.
No, that’s not it, would you like to guess again?  The recession ended seven years ago (June 2009)!  Who writes this stuff for the Pravda Media – Obama’s minions?
http://money.cnn.com/2010/09/20/news/economy/recession_over/
-
Obama claims that the unemployment rate is below 5%, BUT,
there currently are 40 million American Workers that aren’t working but are surviving on taxpayer “support”.  Is the Pravda Media totally brain-dead to this morbid hypocrisy that is dragging our people and our country down into a non-sustainable swamp.
-
Obama now wants to increase the unemployment benefits!
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2016/01/16/obama-unemployment-insurance-proposal/78887464/
Why would he want to do that with his unemployment rate under 5%?
Apparently something about the 40 million who are NOT working and there's an election this year!
-
All this is just more hope and change we have come to believe in!

Obama’s YE-2015 Economy 7-years After Recession Ended

The Parasitic TrumpBird

-
Cartoonist Taylor Jones captured a keen view of Trump’s invasion of the Republican Party and his gross behaviors that the Pravda Media is now successfully transferring onto the persona of the Republican Party.
-
This view is based on the Cuckoo Birds that Don't Just Sneak Into Other Birds' Nests They Barge Right In, lay their eggs for others to hatch and then their chicks euthanize the host birds chicks.

Repost of A Letter to the RT Editor by Va Delegate Kathy Byron:
Rubio is unique, generational leader

On Tuesday, Virginia Republicans will head to the polls to select our party’s nominee for President. The Supreme Court vacancy should remind conservatives of the tremendous stakes in this election. That’s why I’ll be voting for Marco Rubio, a unique, generational leader with a conservative vision for our future that will grow the Republican Party and win this November.
-
Marco Rubio understands that growing our economy – and small businesses – is the best way to create jobs and restore prosperity. He will undo the job-killing regulatory excesses of the Obama Administration to unleash the productivity and innovative spirit of Americans.
-
Marco will repeal ObamaCare. He led the successful fight against the Obama Administration’s $2.5 billion bailout of insurance companies. He understands we need a market-driven system to make healthcare more affordable for our families, not one that bails out insurance companies.
-
No candidate running for president has a better understanding of our national security challenges and opportunities than Marco Rubio. He’ll rebuild our military and restore America’s leadership on the world stage.
-
Marco Rubio has said he would rather lose the election than be wrong on the issue of life. For me, that commitment is crucial. He knows the importance of family and that being a parent is the most important job any of us will ever have. And, he understands the struggles working families face because he’s experienced them.
-
Marco Rubio will unite the Republican Party and our country. This Tuesday, please join me in voting for Marco Rubio for President.

Obama Feebly Escalates New Cold War

-
Roanoke Times, 2-28-2016, Pg 5:  The US has launched a Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Ca in a test meant to highlight nuclear power.
http://www.roanoke.com/news/politics/wire/nuke-test-the-missile-is-the-message-the-pentagon-hopes/article_780c167e-8f65-5214-8dcd-5b08f9d091ac.html
-
Really?  Obama launches a Cold War Nuclear Missile as a show of power?
What a pathetic empty and meaningless saber-rattling from Obama who mocked Romney for stating that Russia is our primary existential threat.
This YouTube is so instructive on Obama’s pathetic understanding of the “real world” situation.

Hillary Joins Pravda Media And Obama In Disrespecting Police Officers

-
Clinton pays tribute to black victims – ignores officers killed in line of duty
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/02/27/clinton-pays-tribute-to-black-victims-ignores-officers-killed-in-line-duty.html?intcmp=hpbt1
“Hillary Clinton paid tribute Saturday during her primary victory rally to the mothers of black victims killed by police and civilians – while ignoring the rising number of police killed by gunfire in the line of duty this year.”
 “She did not mention the rash of police fatalities. So far this year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 10 officers have been shot and killed, representing a 900 percent increase in firearms-related officer deaths compared with this time last year.”

Pravda Press DisRespecting Our Police Again
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2016/02/pravda-press-disrespecting-our-police.html

Obama Disrespecting Our Police Again

http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2015/09/obama-disrespecting-our-police-again.html
Obama: “Shooting a police officer 15 times in the back is “unacceptable” behavior!”
“Unacceptable” – that’s what you say to the waiter when you find a fly in your soup.
That’s NOT what a real President would say when someone shoots a police office in the back 15 times in-cold-blood!
On the other hand – perhaps Obama is simply emphasizing his membership in the “Black Lives Matter” Gang!

ObamaCare Continues To Degrade Our HealthCare Systems


-
Warnings cast doubt on ObamaCare Exchanges
Health insurers are reporting steep losses from their business on the ObamaCare Exchanges.
Reduction in exchanges results in reduction in healthcare choices.
Medical costs have tripled to more than $181 million through first nine months of 2015 for Maine’s Community Health Options.
-
-
Obama’s ObamaCare commitments to the American People continue to expose the lies and incompetence upon which this misdirected policy was based.  The US HealthCare system needs to be redirected either by massive fixes or by “rescind and replace”.
 -
The deterioration is highlighted by Obamacare Enrollment Projections that have been Slashed by 8 Million
The Congressional Budget Office slashed its estimate of exchange enrollment from 21 million to 13 million by 2026 in its annual Budget and Economic Outlook that was released on Tuesday.  http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2016/01/29/Obamacare-Enrollment-Stalls-Projections-Are-Slashed-8-Million
-

-
GAO, HHS Inspector General reports on ObamaCare provide damning indictment of Big Government
In October 2013, after 40 months of preparation and a billion dollars of funding, the Department of Health and Human Services and subsidiary agency Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) unveiled the ObamaCare exchange. It turned into a legendary disaster, enrolling only six people on the first day while the system collapsed. State exchanges didn’t do much better; Oregon’s never signed up a single consumer, for instance. At the time, the Obama administration blamed it on the technological hurdles involved, but the Inspector General at HHS found a much different problem — bureaucracies and a blizzard of warnings that went unheeded.
-
-
All this 20-20 IG-hindsight lamenting about this massive boondoggle has not resulted in an investigation into the $678 Million No-Bid ObamaCare website contract “gifted” to Michelle’s Princeton College Bud!
Move along folks, nothing to see here!

Hillary Supporting Bad Actors – Again

Pravda Press DisRespecting Our Police Again



Roanoke Times, 2-25-2016:
Pg 1, 5: BIG front-page Headline: Taxpayers feel sting of police misconduct 
Back on Pg 3:  Deputy killed in shootout; 2 injured.  Deputy was fatally shot while trying to serve an eviction notice.
-
-
What a very disturbing set of journalistic priorities in today’s RT!
Pg 1 big headlines and major article lamenting the cost of: Progressive-Liberals, Black-Lives-Matter, Sharptonites, Obama and his minions attacks upon our police who are being killed and maimed in large numbers by animals that are being glorified and supported by those being protected by the very police they disrespect and demonize!
-
The RT editors should have a portion of the front page every day devoted to those officers who have been killed or wounded this year to date.  Very quickly the front page will be devoted to that endeavor.  A worthy and honorable commitment compared to what they are doing!

Pravda Press Hiding Federal Judge’s Investigation Of Hillary

-
Roanoke Times, 2-24-2016, AP:  tiny print on page 3:  Judge: Top Clinton aides “should” testify under oath about Hillary’s use of and content upon her private email server.
-
“Should,” testify – no that’s not it – they “must” testify and under oath too!
-
This case is driven by a Judicial Watch lawsuit that is in-addition-to the FBI investigation of both Hillary’s use of and classified materials upon her “bathroom” server.
The current count is 1730 classified documents that were on her server including several dozen top-secret level documents.
http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/02/19/current-tally-at-least-1730-hillary-clinton-emails-with-classified-material/

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/02/24/federal-court-ruling-could-pave-way-for-clinton-subpoena-in-email-case.html
A federal court ruled on Tuesday that a watchdog group could request “under oath” testimony from Hillary Clinton’s State Department aides in connection with her private email server, a decision that could eventually lead to a subpoena for Hillary Clinton.
-
-
Can one imagine the BIG front-page exhaustive coverage of this story IF it were focused on a Republican running for President?
Has there ever been such a directed media cover-up as this one?  I think not!

Obama’s Homeowner And Business Storm Water Boondoggle

-
Boondoggle: work or activity that is wasteful or pointless but gives the appearance of having value.
-
Some appropriate background:
Rain Water run-off management has been part of civil engineering projects for many years.  Along our major highways and significant black-topped projects one can see “impoundments with stand-pipes” built to accumulate high fast run-off and then release it at a slow managed rate into the downstream water-courses; Bass Masters calls this “catch and release”.
Then along comes Spider-Obama and down your waterspout he and his EPA emerge.
-
The Obama-EPA Rain Water Boondoggle
Across the Country, including Virginia, we have embarked on the mission of collecting and processing rainwater runoff.
The water from every building downspout, every driveway, every street drain, every parking lot, and every airport runway is to be “captured and then treated somehow” to the pleasure of the Obama-EPA wizards who couldn’t even manage the Flint lead-water problem.
Apparently city and state highways are exempt!  Another example of “the government” exempting itself while slamming homeowners and businesses.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-obama-epa-rain-water-boondoggle.html
-
What are the detailed plans to “catch and treat” all this surface water?  What have these bureaucrats done with the money collected so far and what were the significant results.  Have these wizards not seen the Roanoke River after some rain?
Roanoke’s Pretty River Banks Just Don’t Hold Water – so much for their $65 Million dollars so called “flood control” project.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2015/09/roanokes-pretty-river-banks-just-dont.html
-
-
For today’s next chapter in this Obama-EPA Boondoggle:
-
Roanoke Times, 2-24-2016, Pg 1, 4:
Pg 1 Headline:  Railroads: Storm water fees a ‘growing nemesis’.  Appending amendment (to Va legislation) could exempt them (railroads) from payments that advocates (Obama) said are necessary to clean up polluted watersheds.
Picture caption: Norfolk Southern’s 800 acres is the biggest “customer” of Roanoke’s 2-year old storm water “utility”.
Pg 4 Headline:  NS argues if roads are exempt, rail-beds should be too.
-
Calling the “targets” of this Government Extortion “customers” is beyond the pale!
At what point are we going to return to reasonable and prudent government actions that make meaningful improvements to our People’s Quality of Life?
How about starting with establishing a private business environment that generates 40 Million New Jobs!

The Obama, Schumer, Biden Hypocrisy Over Confirming SCOTUS Nominees

-
SCOTUS update: 2-25-2016, Pg 1, 5:  AP: Obama's high court poick to face long odds.
"Unlike most nominations, which typically run a few monts, this one could turn into a political circus." 
-
Yet another long and Obama-supportive article totally void of any references to the history of Obama, Schumer and Biden's sordid history on obstructing Republican nominees to the SCOTUS and their vicious attacks upon nominees Bork and the Democrat "high-tech lynching" of Justice Thomas.
Just more Pravda Media slanted and biased Obama-DNC propaganda.
-
-
SCOTUS Update: 2-24-2016 Roanoke Times, Pg 3:  Senate GOP shuts door on vacancy.
-
A sad Pravda Media AP story about those nasty Republicans who are in defiance of the Constitution and Obama's "right" to appoint a SCOTUS judge to replace Justice Scalia.
Not one word about the actions of Obama, Schumer and Biden and their associates setting major precedents blocking "Lame Duck" Republicans in past years as outlined below!
-
Also included is an AP blurb telling us it's OK that there was no autopsy for Justice Scalia.  A doctor, medical examiner or coroner wasn't required to examine Scalia's body because he had ongoing medical issues.  Apparently those issues didn't stop him from being on a hunting trip in remote far West Texas.
If you don't do an autopsy on the sudden death of a Justice of the SCOTUS who is despised and vilified by large numbers of radical people -- who do you do them on?

http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2016/02/senator-schumer-n-ny-to-block-lame-duck.html
-

Obama is sending out VP Biden to be his point-man to carry forward his nominee to the SCOTUS in the face of Biden’s stance on calling for the out-of-hand rejection of a Republican President’s nominee to the SCOTUS:
"Once the political season is underway and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over," Biden said in June 1992 on the Senate floor, according to a C-SPAN recording of his remarks.
