emanuel's chicago is a dope infested warzone and it's also a typical democRat stronghold...How can this be with the messiah b. h. obama at the helm? Louis Farrakhan and others praised the coming of obama and the transition of America...wha' happened?

To whom it may concern: If you want self-serving nitwits like what you see at the DNC ruining what's left of your country and your cities then stay home and don't vote otherwise get off your behind and go vote b. h. obama and every democRat out of office.

The United States could soon become a large-scale Spain or Greece, teetering on the edge of financial ruin.

That’s according to Donald Trump, who painted a very ugly picture of where this country is headed under its current leadership. Trump made the comments during a recent appearance on Fox News’“On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

According to Trump, the United States is no longer a rich country.“When you’re not rich, you have to go out and borrow money. We’re borrowing from the Chinese and others. We’re up to $16 trillion in debt.”

It’s clear that Trump holds President Barack Obama responsible for the ballooning debt. Trump stated that the way Obama is running the country is “stupid.”

He goes on to point out that the downgrade of U.S. debt is inevitable.

“We are going up to $16 trillion [in debt] very soon, and it’s going to be a lot higher than that before he gets finished. When you have [debt] in the $21-$22 trillion, you are talking about a downgrade no matter how you cut it.”

Ballooning debt and a credit downgrade aren’t Trump’s only worries for this country. He says that the official unemployment rate of 8.2 percent “isn’t a real number” and that the real figure is closer to 15 percent to 16 percent. He even mentioned that some believe the unemployment rate to be as high as 21 percent.

“Right now, frankly, the country isn’t doing well,” Trump added,“Recession may be a nice word.”

While 15 percent to 16 percent unemployment, a looming credit downgrade, and ballooning debt are a bleak outlook for the United States, they are hardly as alarming as the scenario laid out by another economist.

Without earning celebrity status or having his own television show, Robert Wiedemer did something else that grabbed headlines across the country: He accurately predicted the economic collapse that almost sank the United States.

In 2006, Wiedemer and a team of economists foresaw the coming collapse of the U.S. housing market, equity markets, private debt, and consumer spending, and published their findings in the book America’s Bubble Economy.

Editor’s Note: See the disturbing interview with Wiedemer.

But Wiedemer’s outlook for the U.S. economy today makes Trump’s observations seem almost optimistic.

Where Trump sees ballooning debt and a credit downgrade, Wiedemer sees much more widespread economic destruction.

In a recent interview for his newest book Aftershock, Wiedemer says,“The data is clear, 50% unemployment, a 90% stock market drop, and 100% annual inflation ... starting in 2012.”

When the host questioned such wild claims, Wiedemer unapologetically displayed shocking charts backing up his allegations, and then ended his argument with,“You see, the medicine will become the poison.”

The interview has become a wake-up call for those unprepared (or unwilling) to acknowledge an ugly truth: The country’s financial “rescue” devised in Washington has failed us miserably....

A man goes to the first whorehouse in the red light district and demands to know it it’s a union shop. The madam says not, so he storms out of the building. He goes into the whorehouse next door and does the same thing. By the time he gets to the fourth whorehouse the word has spread, so when he demands to know if it’s a union shop, the madam says “Yes, we are proud union whores here.”

He gives her the money, and she give the man a key to room 13. When he gets there, he finds a woman old enough to be his grandmother. He turns around and complains to the madam, who replies,“but she has seniority.

UPDATE: Obama gives himself an 'incomplete' grade...AS HE SHOULD, he never finishes anything.........he just proposts but never put plans on paper.

POLL: Just 40% say he deserves second term...

DEMS SET TO MOVE BIG SPEECH TO SMALLER VENUE? notice the camera's on CNN wouldn't pan a wide view..........and still empty seats.

If this election will truly set the tone for years to come, who would vote for Obama? Romney may turn out to be a bust but we already know what Obama is. When your clothes are dirty, you gotta change them.

This stupid little prick has Chicago at the point of going up in flames. It only took the little shit about two years to screw things up. It reflects the stupidity of the Obamoloney way. He should go back to his native Israel and screw things up over there.

Emanuel fits into the friends of Obama stereotype. There seems to be an almost universal feeling among his appointees and advisors that the law doesn't apply to them. This is the worst gang to ever occupy our government, followed by the last presidents band of bufoons.

And if there EVER was a better argument as to WHY OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED, it's Rahm Emanuel's speech.

The impact of LIFETIME Federal Judges and LIFETIME Supreme Court judges-Obama will have the ability to nominate 2 or 3 MORE Supreme Court judges-will be the 40 year legacy of Obama.

A new president is imperative, democrat senators need to be defeated to JUST REBALANCE our country.

Again, we have seen and heard evidence that GOVERNMENT is the answer to ALL our problems from the democrats.

OBAMA: "The Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To"


Next on the agenda for Obama is to remove "UNDER GOD" from the pledge of allegiance.

Democrats removed GOD from their platform.

“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their GOD-given potential.”

REWORKED DEMOCRAT PARAGRAPH WITH REMOVAL OF GOD:

"We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”



If there was EVER any indication as to what direction Obama will continue to take us....it is now staring Americans in their faces.

DEMOCRATS=GOVERNMENT IS THEIR GOD
OBAMA=GOVERNMENT IS HIS GOD

.Solar Trust of America: FAIL - Filed Bankruptcy in Oakland, CA, April 3, 2012 – On April 2, 2012

Bright Source: FAIL - Bright Source warned Obama’s Energy Department officials in March 2011 that delays in approving a $1.6 billion U.S. loan guarantee would embarrass the White House and force the solar-energy company to close. Lost Billions of dollars but Getting More Money To Keep Trying. Can you say,“This isnt working?”

Solyndra: FAIL - Obama gave Solyndra $500,000,000 in taxpayer money and Solyndra shut its doors and laid off 1100 workers in August 2011 After Billions in Losses due to failure to make a solar product that works!

LSP Energy: FAIL - LSPEnergy LP filed bankruptcy protection and a sale of its assets in Feb 2012

Energy Conversion Devices: FAIL – On February 14, 2012 Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy

Abound Solar: FAIL - Abound Solar received a $400 million loan guarantee from Barack Obama announced in June, 2012 that it would file for bankruptcy

SunPower: FAIL – SunPower stopped producing solar cells last year at near bankruptcy restructured only with help of, get this, oil giant TOTAL who owns 60% stake. Irony! Still

Beacon Power: FAIL – Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy Oct 2011 just a year after Obama approved $43 million loan Government loan guarantee

Ecotality: FAIL - ECOtality, a San Francisco green-tech company that never earned any money on the verge of bankruptcy after receiving roughly $115 million in two loan guarantees from Obama

A123 Solar: FAIL-A123 received $279 million from taxpayers thanks to President Obama’sDepartment of Energy loan guarantees and after Solyndra bankruptcy is getting another $500M from Obama and it has lost $400M

UniSolar: FAIL - Uni-Solar filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy in June 20 this year laid off hundreds got more Obama money still failing but still in business

Azure Dynamics: FAIL - Azure Dynamics files for bankruptcy in June ter millions in Obama “Stimulus”

Evergreen Solar: FAIL - Evergreen Solar received $527 Million in Taxpayer money from Obama filed bankruptcy

Ener1: FAIL received more than $100 million in government funding from the Obama administration filed for bankruptcy January 2012

Update: In May 2012 Obama visited a dusty, desert town 30 miles outside Las Vegas Wednesday to declare he’s doubling down on failed federal efforts to boost the solar industry which has NEVER proven to produce a single working product. Like Socialism, no evidence ot works, but they just keep doubling down on the failed ideals!.

Good speech Rahmbo!!!
It does not matter what side they are on, but it is tragic that we follow, elect and adore men who are evil. Human history is full of this. And yet it is repeated over and over. In our case the fiat currency has made kings out of scum and if it collapses will show them for what they are. Chicago lives well while it takes from the county and the state under this scenario with the feds in tow. So true for many areas. But resources are dwindling in real terms. And people are losing in spots of America and are tired of it. So enjoy.

Enjoyed Mr. Emmanuel's speech but the true stars were Mayor Julian Castro, Governor Deval Patrick and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Julian Castro....hahah...wonder why last night he didn't repeat his comment about HATING THE ALAMO....and that the men who died there were just a bunch of drunks.......or the fact that he and his Mother are big RAZA members and fans.

Michele should have shown here youtube vidio where she says to Barack......ALL THIS FOR A FLAG....with their new platform it would have been fitting.
