I have always known there was a “method to the madness”. You know that when Democrats press their “green agenda” down your throat it is because their friends have businesses that profit from it. They have always portrayed big business as the thieves, when in reality big business makes it’s money the old fashioned way, it Earns it!!!

By creating or managing products or sales and marketing of products or services, hiring of employees to help them in that endeavor. Big business is nothing more than a successful group of entrepreneurs who are good for the economy because they Hire people and spend money.

What about those people who continuously badmouth big business, what do they do for the economy??? Who have they given a job to lately??? Let there be no mistake, opponents of big business are generally collecting salaries from an anti-American, anti big business Billionaire like George Soros.

Why does he finance these things you ask??? Because he makes his money by destroying economies. He makes money by destroying the worth of a country’s currency. So he hires agents to help him do that. Hurt existing companies, while pushing regulations helping “green” companies owned by him and his friends, promising big pay days to politicians who help him.

Obama gave Solyndra and many other “green energy” companies millions and millions of American tax dollars. Just afterwards those companies put our money in their pockets, and closed the doors. Profiting from failure. All of this was planned from day one.

They achieved their objective. Thinking their agenda and yours is the same is where you are mistaken. Go back and look at how much taxpayer money was lost by Obama and his “green energy” friends.

Here is another example of the Obama business model. He gets on television and promotes his anti-gun agenda in front of the world, while in the background he’s invested in firearm and ammo companies. You see he creates a situation causing the sales and price of firearms to soar, while betting on the gun company. Check out the full story from The New American.

Obama Owns Stock in Gun and Ammo Manufacturers, Profiting From His Policies

Written by 

While with his infamous “pen and … phone” President Barack Obama has acted to limit the availability of guns and ammunition; with his investments he profits from the purchase of both these objects which have “taken a heartbreaking toll on too many communities across the country.

A special report published by Reuters on February 5 reveals that President Obama owns stock in a couple of manufacturers of guns and ammunition.

From Reuters:

From his days in the Illinois General Assembly, President Obama has up to $100,000 invested in a nearly $16 billion state pension plan, which has about $5 million invested directly in several gun and ammo makers. The retirement plan, which covers state employees, judges and the general assembly, also holds shares in a small-cap mutual fund with a $9.5 million stake in Smith & Wesson.

While this is admittedly a minuscule amount of money for one a man of the president’s net worth ($7 million as of 2014), the inconsistency between his advocacy of tighter gun controls and his increase in personal prosperity from the increased demand for weapons and ammunition is noteworthy.

As The New American has reported, President Obama has signed numerous executive orders (edicts masquerading as valid law) restricting the right of Americans to purchase, sell, trade, and own firearms and the ammunition that make them useful.

Such a seizure of power is inarguably tyrannical. While there may be millions who depend on the tyranny for their living and millions of others who support the tyrant’s usurpation as something good, there can be no doubt that for a president to issue fiats from the White House effectively repealing the Second Amendment is the act of a tyrant.

As with most of the notorious tyrants of history, President Obama draws near to the people with his lips, but his heart is set on lining his own pockets. Nowhere is this hypocrisy more evident than in the revelation of his ownership of stock in manufacturers of firearms and ammunition.

The effect on the bottom line of these companies since Barack Obama settled in the Oval Office is remarkable. Again, as reported by Reuters:

Since Obama was elected in 2009, mutual funds have raised their stakes to about $510 million from $30 million in the nation’s two largest gun manufacturers with publicly traded shares, Smith & Wesson Corp and Sturm, Ruger & Co. That means such stocks are now common in retirement and college savings plans.

The influx has helped to boost both companies’ shares by more than 750 percent during the Obama presidency; each now has a market value of about $1 billion.

To many, this double dealing may seem inexplicable. When analyzed economically rather than morally, the problem is solved very easily.

According to principles of supply and demand, when the supply of a good decreases and the demand for that good simultaneously increases, the price ascends proportionally.

That is to say, President Obama’s attack on the gun and ammo industries serves not only to advance his agenda on the Constitution, but to manipulate the price of those two items in a way that favors his personal fortunes.

He can have his cake of decreasing public liberty while eating the cake of increasing personal wealth.

Later in the story of the seeming discrepancy between public policy and personal investment, Reuters painted a clear and condemning picture of the favorable economic developments in the firearm sector that followed Obama’s 2008 election:

By the end of 2015, more than 150 mutual funds owned Smith & Wesson shares, up from 53 at the end of 2008, and nearly 130 held stock in Ruger, up from 52, according to data from Morningstar Inc.

It would have taken investors “minimal due diligence” to see massive profit potential in Ruger stock when Obama was first elected, said Ruger Chief Executive Mike Fifer. Shares hit a low of $4.50 the Friday after that Tuesday election; the stock was changing hands today at $61.61.

“Orders at every level of the distribution channel exploded” the week of Obama’s election, Fifer recalled. “And continued to do so for months afterward.”

And, later in the article, the benefit to the president’s portfolio created by his drive to disarm civilians is reported:

“Let’s just say he’s been good for business,” Jack Lesher, manager of Chuck’s Firearms in Atlanta, said of Obama.

Gun sales jumped again recently after the president blasted congressional inaction on gun control and vowed to use executive powers to expand background checks for buyers and bolster licensing requirements for dealers. His announcement followed yet another mass shooting, on Dec. 2 in San Bernardino, California, where a couple pledging allegiance to Islamic State killed 14 people.

For the week that ended Dec. 20, firearms background checks – a proxy for guns sales – totaled 839,109, the second-highest week since 1998. Only the week after the Sandy Hook shootings was higher, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Vista’s main factories have churned out bullets 24 hours, seven days a week for at least two years, Vista Chief Financial Officer Stephen Nolan told investors in November.

Now the industry is ready for an election-year surge.

“The politics of gun control could stay in the headlines, which we believe could lead to a record year,” wrote Chris Krueger, senior research analyst at Lake Street Capital Markets, in a note to investors in January.

Ruger is boosting inventories to prepare, after learning a costly lesson going into the last presidential election. Demand peaked that year, based on the number of FBI background checks sought for new gun purchases. The surge followed Obama’s re-election and the Sandy Hook shooting.

“When we went into late 2011, we got cleaned out of inventory … even though we increased production dramatically,” company CEO Fifer told investors during a November conference call.

Regardless, there will be those who will defend the president’s profiting from the companies whose wares have contributed to the crisis of public safety in which “more than 100,000 people have been killed as a result of gun violence.”

These advocates will point out that the president’s percent of ownership in these industries is indirect and insignificant. Both of those adjectives are apt, but they do not accurately describe the bigger picture.

“Obama and his tiny stake are typical of most Americans with holdings in firearms investments: They are invested in funds that buy shares of the relatively small part of the firearms industry that is publicly traded. But collectively, their investments are a boon to the gun industry and amount to a sizable stake in major gun and ammo makers,” Tim McLaughlin and Peter Eisler write in the Reuters story.

Not surprisingly, Reuters notes that “The White House declined to comment on Obama’s holdings in the Illinois General Assembly’s pension plan, which he earned while serving in that state’s senate.”

Chicago Democrat Sworn into Office from Jail

Typical Democrat! “A Felon that steals from Taxpayers” will soon become the actual Webster’s definition of “Democrat” if Democrats hold their present course!!! Exhibit A is found in this FrontPage Mag article by Daniel Greenfield

Wouldn’t it just be more convenient to move the city government into prison or to just treat government buildings as prisons? It would save commuting time and make trials much simpler.

Just ask Bob Battle.

Locks and bars didn’t stop East Chicago Councilman Robert Battle’s inauguration.

The newly sworn-in Battle can retain his public title and annual salary of $42,356 a year despite being held in Porter County Jail on federal drug and homicide charges.

He is pleading not guilty to a five-count indictment alleging he possessed cocaine and marijuana and killed a street gang member as part of a drug-dealing conspiracy.

Democrats are oddly unhappy, even though they seem to be big fans of Obama’s “free the drug dealers” plan. Not to mention restoring voting rights to felons.

“I can’t remember a situation like this,” Sheriff John Buncich, chair of the Lake County Democratic Central Committee, told the Tribune in November, when Battle was reelected just a few weeks after being charged with murder and drug dealing. “It’s wrong for the taxpayers, wrong for our party.”

How, exactly, a man charged with murder and drug dealing just days before an election could win reelection says a lot about life in this poor northwestern corner of Indiana.

The answer: he’s a Democrat.

Battle ran unopposed, winning with just 308 votes in a city of about 30,000 people.

Battle didn’t even vote for himself because he was in jail and didn’t request an absentee ballot, Buncich told NWI.com.

“I just think it’s just a matter of people not knowing [about the charges] and voting for the party they are familiar with,” Eisenstein told the Tribune.

That’s what happens when you have a one-party system.

As early as April, the agents with the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Lake County High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force were tapping his phone and investigating him for drug trafficking, according to an Oct. 14 indictment obtained by the Tribune.

On Sept. 23, officials caught Battle with 73 grams of marijuana and $100,700 in cash in his car, according to the indictment. Police also linked him to nine ounces of cocaine and three stolen guns found elsewhere, according to the documents.

Roughly three weeks later, Battle allegedly shot Camarillo in an alley behind Battle’s apartment. Battle said that he killed Camarillo in self-defense after Camarillo pulled a knife on him, according to court documents. But the Lake County Coroner’s Office ruled that Caramillo was shot once in the back, and police failed to find a knife at the scene, the Tribune reported.

Forget Trump, this is a guy who actually got reelected after shooting somebody in the back. Now those are real political skills. But the Democrats, despite their protests now, let it happen.

In 2014, reputed Imperial Gangster Eddie “Macho” Torres tesitified that East Chicago Councilman Robert “Coop” Battle had been involved in the drug trade in the past. Add that to the multiple arrests for possession of marijuana and you get a picture of a candidate most political parties would want to dump. Not so with the Lake County Democratic Party. Battle could have been easily removed from the ballot in several ways, but no one ever challenged him.

Election Board records show that Robert Battle filed a pre-primary report in 2011 showing that Battle neither received nor spent money in the campaign. While that alone should be enough for a challenge, he never filed a single report after that. Candidates are required to file 3 reports in an election year and an annual report in non-election years. Despite that, Battle appeared on the 2015 ballot unchallenged.

What’s the difference between a criminal and a Democrat? No, seriously. What’s the difference?

laurie012516-1In my opinion Trump has held it together as long as he could, and is now unraveling into a mess of white noise. Don’t get me wrong, I agree with a lot of what the guy says, but he generally gets on television and brings up a subject 5 minutes after Ted Cruz introduces legislation on the same subject! Then the media historically has given Trump the credit for it.

People, you can agree with Trump on things he says without voting for the guy! You have to remember this is the same guy who called himself “Obama’s biggest cheerleader” and was a registered Democrat in 2009. He flip flops on his views so often it’ll make you dizzy…………..UNTIL he starts running for President.

He’s good friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton and had them at his wedding. He has given more money to the Clinton Foundation than even George Stephanopoulos has! Can you picture Donald Trump in the White House when the threat of a nuclear war broke out with Russia??? I can imagine it!!! Vladimir Putin makes some comment about America ………….

Trump comes back calling him a variety of names using derogatory adjectives and thus we are in WW3!!! Trump is NOT Presidential, never was, never will be. He does not have the temperament. As the election winds down, and Trump’s numbers fall more and more in favor of Cruz, Donald Trump will lash out like a child more and more often.

If you still support Trump you need to do more research!!! Trump is for Trump!!! Ted Cruz is for AMERICA!!! I firmly believe a vote for Trump is a vote for “Hillary by proxy” Putting all of that aside Trump has said he’ll be “making deals” with the establishment, the same establishment that we are all sick and tired of!!!

Not only that, the establishment has come out in favor of Trump too. America, this election is important because we have to change America’s course or our country will fail!!! So why would you vote Trump/establishment when you KNOW they plan on changing nothing???

Ted Cruz on the other hand, is despised by the establishment because he presses the work of the people, NOT the work of the politicians. Ted Cruz is highly intelligent, has the Constitution memorized, and can win a debate with all comers! Ted Cruz has a proven record of voting the way his constituents want him too, and not giving in to any party. Vote Ted Cruz, and #DumpDonald

Cruz Commander – TV Ad

Sit back and watch #CruzCommander (IN CHIEF) in his new ad with the boys from Duck Commander!!!

We are voting for you!!! ALL of us!!!

WASHINGTON– Sen. Ted Cruz spent the weekend duck hunting and winning over Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s endorsement.

The campaign released a new ad with the endorsement, showing Cruz and Robertson huddled in a duck blind, covered head-to-toe in camouflage and donning dark face paint.

Cruz said at a gun rally yesterday they were blowing ducks out of the sky.

“My qualifications for president of the United States are rather narrow,” Robertson said in the ad, quieting concerns over Cruz’s natural-born citizenship.

“Is he or she Godly, does he or she love us, can he or she do the job, and finally would they kill a duck and put him in a pot and make him a good duck gumbo?” he said.

Robertson tells Cruz he is “one of us, my man” earning Robertson’s vote.

Robertson and Cruz last met at a rally against the Iran nuclear deal in September. At the time Robertson said “I was anti [establishment] when anti wasn’t even cool,” noting that Cruz, along with his rival Donald Trump were true anti-establishment candidates.

Secret Recordings of Cruz Shows Nothing Secret At All

By:Amanda Carpenter | December 23rd, 2015

 

Oh, I could hear the balloon deflating all the way from the Politico headquarters.

Phllloooooooopppphhtt.

Last week, on the day of the highly-watched GOP presidential debate, someone gave Politico’s Mike Allen an enticing piece of catnip to put in his insidery morning email. Secret audio tape would soon be published on a conservative news site supposedly showing that Ted Cruz talks much differently to NYC moderates than Iowa evangelicals. “These leaks are designed to undermine Cruz’s authenticity,” Allen wrote.

The prospect of a juicy secret recording flew around the Internet.

People reported on the prospect of the audio tape, before ever hearing a word of what Cruz said. All by design, to be sure, just like Allen wrote. The whole intent was to plant the notion that Cruz is a big phony – without a shred of evidence.

Days and days went by. Nothing. Then, finally this morning Politico published the story. The day before Christmas Eve. Aka the holiday news dump. They didn’t have the goods.  Someone put one over Mike Allen.

Now that it’s finally out, what did Cruz say? Absolutely nothing he hasn’t said in public before.

Politico wrote:

“During the question period, one of the donors told Cruz that gay marriage was one of the few issues on which the two disagreed. Then the donor asked: “So would you say it’s like a top-three priority for you — fighting gay marriage?”

“No,” Cruz replied. “I would say defending the Constitution is a top priority. And that cuts across the whole spectrum — whether it’s defending [the] First Amendment, defending religious liberty.”

The story went on:

“A well-known Republican operative not affiliated with a 2016 campaign said by email when sent Cruz’s quote: “Wow. Does this not undermine all of his positions? Abortion, Common Core — all to the states? … Worse, he sounds like a slick D.C. politician — says one thing on the campaign trail and trims his sails with NYC elites. Not supposed to be like that.”

Hilarious. These operatives don’t seem to understand that the Constitution happens to cover religious liberty issues. Like marriage. And, pretty much everything else!

Moreover, as Politico even admits, Cruz has made the exact argument in public places, including during interviews with Stephen Colbert and Jay Leno!

Specifically, when Stephen Colbert suggested that Cruz believed there should be “no gay marriage,” Cruz stopped him and said, “Let’s be precise. Under the Constitution, marriage is a question for the states, if you want to change the marriage law–”

Colbert then interjected the “Constitution doesn’t mention marriage.”

And Cruz explained, “That’s exactly why it’s a question for the states. The 10th Amendment says if it doesn’t mention it, it’s a question for the states. That’s in the Bill of Rights. Everything that is not mentioned is left to the states.”

Cruz went on,

“I don’t think we should entrust governing our society to five unelected lawyers in Washington. Why would you possibly hand over the rights of 320 million Americans to five lawyers in Washington to decide these are the rules that govern you? If you want to win an issue, go to the ballot box and win at the ballot box. That’s the way the Constitution was designed.”
