Electorate Awakens: Obama Gas And Mortgage Groupie Now Says He Lied About Everything

    Everyone remembers this viral video of Florida mother Peggy Joseph voicing her unqualified support for Santa Obama , the candidate that will pay her mortgage and put gas in her car , but just in case you’ve forgotten just how enthusiastic the woman was here is the video again …

 

 

 

   Fast forward six years and Ms Joseph is whistling a different tune . Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert located Peggy as part of his latest project “There’s No Place Like Utopia” and here is what she has to say after six years of “Hope & Change”.

 

 

 

 

” Remember that South Florida woman who had her fifteen minutes of fame claiming Obama would pay for her mortgage and gas?

  Before the 2008 election, she was filmed saying “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. If I help him, he’s going to help me!”

  Well, documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert tracked down Peggy Joseph to see how all that hope and change is working out for her and six years later, she’s had a complete change of heart. After living through Obama’s failed economic policies, she now says “he lied about everything.” “

” As the housing recovery now moves in fits and still-weak starts, the super-pricey segment is sizzling. Sales of the most expensive 1 percent of homes in the U.S. are up 21 percent this year, according to a report from Redfin, a Seattle-based real estate brokerage. Sales in the remaining 99 percent are down 7.6 percent.

” There are haves and have nots, and the haves are the ones out buying,” Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said.

  Ten local housing markets have seen sales growth above 50 percent this year, not surprisingly the top three in tech-heavy Northern California. Long Island, home to the hoity-toitiest Hamptons homes, has seen sales up 72 percent, and Seattle and Miami aren’t far behind.

” The stock market had a record year and now it’s begun to plateau, and so you see people moving their money out of the equity market and into the housing market,” said Kelman.”

China Poised To Pass US As World’s Leading Economic Power This Year

” The US is on the brink of losing its status as the world’s largest economy, and is likely to slip behind China this year, sooner than widely anticipated, according to the world’s leading statistical agencies.

  The US has been the global leader since overtaking the UK in 1872. Most economists previously thought China would pull ahead in 2019.

The figures, compiled by the International Comparison Program hosted by the World Bank, are the most authoritative estimates of what money can buy in different countries and are used by most public and private sector organisations, such as the International Monetary Fund. This is the first time they have been updated since 2005.

  After extensive research on the prices of goods and services, the ICP concluded that money goes further in poorer countries than it previously thought, prompting it to increase the relative size of emerging market economies.

  The estimates of the real cost of living, known as purchasing power parity or PPPs, are recognised as the best way to compare the size of economies rather than using volatile exchange rates, which rarely reflect the true cost of goods and services: on this measure the IMF put US GDP in 2012 at $16.2tn, and China’s at $8.2tn.”

” China is on track to overtake America as the world’s biggest economy in 2016 as its growth accelerates, according to a report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

“China has weathered the global economic and financial crisis of the past five years better than virtually any OECD country and than many other emerging economies,” said the OECD.

“It is well placed to enjoy a fourth decade of rapid catch-up and improving living standards,” the tank added. However, it did point to risks such as property prices and potential tension arising from social inequalities and an ageing population.”

Romney slams Obama in tough speech

   ” Mitt Romney used a tough new campaign speech to personally blast the Obama campaign on Tuesday, saying comments earlier in the day from Vice President Biden are “what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.”

“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” Romney
said while campaigning in Ohio.”

Academic study wargames using U.S. troops to quell revolution

 

   “An academic study about the future use of the military as a peacekeeping force within the United States written by a retired Army Colonel depicts a shocking scenario in which the U.S. Army is used to restore order to a town that has been seized by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.

The paper, entitled Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future, was written by Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber. Retired Colonel Benson, a seminar leader at the University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, also served with the 5th Infantry Division, the 1st Armored Division, the 1st Cavalry Division, the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, XVIII Airborne Corps and Third U.S. Army. Weber is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Kansas.

The paper begins by emphasizing how the U.S. Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 dictates that the military’s “full spectrum operations” will include “operations within American borders.”

A scenario in which a group of “political reactionaries,” later described as “Tea Party insurrectionists” forcibly take control of a strategic town is then outlined.”

Food Stamp Fraud Explodes when we have ” the Food Stamp President ” ?

“Fraud is skyrocketing as states shift from issuing paper-based food stamps to plastic, electronic benefits transfer cards preloaded with a monthly limit of cash intended only for food purchases.

  Examples of fraud prompted Congress to take action, with President Obama signing a law in February intended to prevent EBT cardholders from spending their money on tattoos and at strip
clubs, liquor stores and casinos.

  Here’s a state-by-state listing of some EBT fraud stories: “

They got what they asked for and now have buyer’s remorse .

  “2008, many allies clearly wanted change to the benefit of Mr. Obama. Some 200,000 Germans
showed up in Berlin to hear candidate Obama speak. Der Spiegel wrote favorably at the time:
“For a moment, it was plausible to think that he wanted to quickly launch a global.transformation through this crowd …” “

   Four years on and the koolaid has finally worn off . What misery the world has had to endure due to the corruption of the old media and their Chauncey Gardener of an empty suit , as well as the pagan , idol-worshipping , public school indoctrinated idiot American voters .

   ” In contrast, Obama has spoken primarily of trade eliminating U.S. jobs. He has implied that
much wealth is ill gotten and his policies presume that capital can be allocated better by government officials than free markets,especially in the field of energy. Taxes on investment are set to increase massively in January, with the levy on dividends rising from
15% to as much as 43%.

   All of this is noted abroad. The consequence is that people increasingly do business elsewhere.
They invest capital elsewhere. Countries are now more willing to seek trade agreements with
Canada than with the United States, for example. Allies have to cut deals with the bad actors in their regions. More countries
contemplate nuclear arsenals of their own. Tyrannical governments see no cost to crushing dissent violently.”

More ” Green Graft ”

It’s getting to be a regular news item , even if the MSM doesn’t see fit to inform their few remaining viewers . Just another day of taxpayer funded “green” subsidies flushed down the rat hole

 ” It won’t be the first, if so … and probably not the last, either.  Battery maker A123 got more than $250 million in taxpayer subsidies from Barack Obama’s green-tech stimulus, specifically to produce a robust amount of product for Obama’s promised explosion of electric vehicles.  Unfortunately, the only thing exploding are A123′s losses.  CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson reports that the company’s latest SEC filings admit “substantial doubt” about A123′s future — even while it spends the remaining $100 million in taxpayer-guaranteed funds (via The Right Scoop):”

Real Hope & Change

  As Professor Meade says , this is not the way to achieve economic equality for most of us , but for the Left this is a feature and not a bug . 

“Last year the US made great strides towards a more equal society: we cut the number of millionaires by more than 100,000. According to a study from the Boston Consulting Group, 129,000 evil US millionaires rejoined the ranks of the proletariat last year as the value of their stocks, cash and other non-business and non-property assets fell below the magic number.

4.3 percent of US households still qualify as millionaires by that measure, but OWS partisans shouldn’t despair. Perhaps with another few years of stock market declines, slow or negative economic growth and low interest rates we can take another big whack out of that number.”

“I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin,” Chomsky said, “but when she was making fun of this ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right, there was nothing there.”

LOL , yes that Chomsky

From the comments : “Hiring someone to do work for your company,that you can easily fire if they don’t perform or
work slows is one thing. Adopting an employee as if he was your child is something else entirely.”
