Barack Obama, our next President

QE3 Infinity - Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Ben Bernanke
Watch:


Quote:
A third round of quantitative easing, QE3 was announced on 13 September 2012. In an 11-to-1 vote, the Federal Reserve decided to launch a new $40 billion a month, open-ended, bond purchasing program of agency mortgage-backed securities. Additionally, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced that it would likely maintain the federal funds rate near zero "at least through 2015."[52][53] According to NASDAQ.com , this is effectively a stimulus program which allows the Federal Reserve to relieve $40 billion per month of commercial housing market debt risk.[54] Because of its open-ended nature, QE3 has earned the popular nickname of "QE-Infinity."[55] On 12 December 2012, the FOMC announced an increase in the amount of open-ended purchases from $40 billion to $85 billion per month.

On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Ben Bernanke announced a "tapering" of some of its QE policies contingent upon continued positive economic data. Specifically, he said it would scale back its bond purchases from $85 billion a month to $65 billion a month during the upcoming September 2013 policy meeting.[57] He also suggested that the bond buying program could wrap up by mid-2014.[58] While Bernanke did not announce an interest rate hike, he suggested that if inflation follows a 2% target rate and unemployment decreases to 6.5% threshold,the Fed would likely start raising rates. The stock markets subsequently dropped approximately 4.3% over three trading days following Bernanke's announcement, with the Dow Jones dropping 659 points between Wednesday, June 19 and Monday, June 24, closing at 14,660 at the end of the day Monday.

There is a silver lining in the new numbers for Democrats: Although President Obamaís numbers are sliding, he remains significantly more popular than Republicans in the House of Representatives. In the Marist-McClatchy poll, the House GOPís approval rating sits at a dismal 22 percent, while the Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52 percent of Republicans believe that GOP leaders are taking the party in the wrong direction (compared to just 37 percent who say that headed in the right direction). And, unlike President Obama, House Republicans still have to face the voters next November." http://www.nationalmemo.com/polls-obamas-appr...
The presidentís handling of the economy has driven his decline in the polls. The Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 45 percent approve of Obamaís handling of the economy, while 49 percent disapprove. The Marist-McClatchy poll shows a far worse result, with 37 percent approving, and 56 percent disapproving.

Read the last statements by Zimmerman and the dispatcher. You've been saying for days that Zimmerman went back to meet the police but those statements clearly prove otherwise.
How do you explain that?
It's just the parallel universe phenomenon again.

Either you're in it or I am.

Zimmerman was clearly going to meet the police at what I understood to be the clubhouse but it was actually the mailboxes.

OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then?[3:42]

Yeah, thatís fine.[3:43]

We're definitely in dangerous waters. It's easier to empathize with political enemies in gulags in communist countries.

The good news is Obama's ratings are falling significantly.

People are starting to wake up to the reality Obamacare isn't going to work. For a lot of people, it's not going to be free and will cost them a lot of money.

It might take some time but, with Obamacare looming and the findings of the ongoing investigations by the Congressional and Senate Finance Committees approaching, hopefully, more people will figure it out.

Evidence Is In -- Again -- GOP 'Trickledown' Economics a Failure

For several years the same "cut deficits at any cost, austerity for the poor and middle class" economics that is espoused daily by the Republican Party in the U.S, has swept the capitals of Europe. It has been a disaster. GDP in the Euro-area dropped in 2012 and continued to decline in 2013.

At last week's meeting of the G-20 finance ministers -- whose governments oversee 90 percent of the world economy -- there was a clear consensus on the need for robust fiscal stimulus in order to spur worldwide economic growth and a rejection of austerity.

....But this should not come as any surprise to anyone with even a modicum of memory. This is not the first time in recent history that the evidence has indisputably shown the bankruptcy of GOP economic policies. It was just five years ago this September that the same "trickle down" economic policies resulted in the greatest financial and economic collapse in 60 years.

When the Republicans passed the Bush tax cuts in 2003, they promised massive economic growth. The notion that cutting taxes for the rich would "lift all boats" turned out to be sheer fantasy. The Bush years were the first period in modern American economic history to experience zero private sector job growth -- zero.

And of course the Republican commitment to allowing Wall Street bankers and speculators to run wild ultimately resulted in the September, 2008 financial meltdown.

That commitment has not waned. The House GOP plans to cut $200 million from the budget of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) that would have been spent on investigations and enforcement actions against Wall Street. Note, by the way, that since the SEC is paid for by Wall Street, the $200 million will find its way directly into the pockets of the big Wall Street banks.

The lesson is simple. The evidence is in. If you believe the Republican notion that economic growth happens from the top down, I have some great swampland to sell you.

For the First Time Since 1994 A Majority of Republicans Are Dissatisfied With Their Party

Right when you thought Republicans werenít very clever, seeing as they are so easily played by the GOP elites, they go and do something that appears remotely cognizant of reality, like disapproving of their partyís leadership.

For the first time in six poll results dating to 1994, a majority (52%) of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents say their party is going astray, according to a new poll for ABC by Langer Research Associates.

Only 37% of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents say their leaders are taking the GOP in the right direction. A stunning fifty-two percent say their own leaders are headed the wrong way,ďup 20 points from last August (when the White House seemed winnable) and a majority for the first time in six poll results dating to 1994.Ē

....Before we rush to praise the base for finally waking up, we should ask the same question too few asked about ObamaCare. I would posit that perhaps the answer is that conservatives feel the party is not far right enough, just as liberals felt ObamaCare wasnít good enough because it wasnít universal healthcare.

However, a recent poll showed that 49% of Republicans think their party should compromise with Obama more. So, Republicans are caught between the tea-leading-the-(leaderless)Ho use and the closed door to the White House. It may be truly that the tea conservatives are destroying the Republican party, which they hijacked with the partyís help via gerrymandering. Some call it karma for cheating, but itís sorta sad in its easy predictability.

Even Republicans know their party is a bucket of fail now, but naturally, this information will never reach the House of Representatives or alter the course of the parasites (House tea Republicans) feeding off of a base so misinformed about reality that they still blame Obama for the bank bailouts. We could all see where this was leading way back in 2010, when Sarah Palin was their chosen puppet leader.

Would you feel better if I used a different term than "lies"? Do you have any suggestions? That's all I can come up with. How about "misinformation"?
(Reuters)- President Barack Obama on Monday called the targeting of conservative groups by U.S. tax officials "outrageous" and said that any Internal Revenue Service employees involved would be held accountable.

"We'll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. But I've got no patience with it," Obama said. "I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/05/13/us-...

So? Has he found out anything? That was over two months ago.

No one has been fired. In fact, key players have been promoted.

He called the Benghazi scandal a "sideshow" but CNN is even asking about the survivors and why they aren't speaking up.

Is this really too hard for you?
