Does this mean it’s now okay to say
that Obama is a redistributionist?

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/25/2012 10:00:34 PM

With the reelection of President Obama secured, Washington Post economics reporter Zachary Goldfarb finally identifies “the bedrock belief that has driven the president for decade” (or Obama’s “driving force,” per the web edition). That bedrock belief is that the power of the federal government must be used reduce income inequality in America. According to Goldfarb, Obama formed this belief as a child and young adult living abroad, where he observed, in Obama’s words, “the vast disparity in wealth between those who are part of the power structure and those who are outside of it.”

Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the Clinton´s, John Kerry Heinz, Joe Biden, Al Gore and the Kennedys, to name a few, are part of the power structure. They live better then the majority of the taxpayers who pay their way. They will have pensions and healthcare that we will never have. With all that they have, they still want to tax us more and 47 percent pay no income tax, but ensure that these parasites keep getting elected.

The money is only going to insiders. It is not being redistributed to all the people in the US.

That was just propaganda.
After all his family members live in poverty while obama has millions of dollars.

Capitalist´s want to narrow the difference between the have´s and the have not´s just as Socialist do, just with a different approach. We say let capitalism allow those on the bottom of the economic ladder to climb up the ladder. They say, bring those on the top of the ladder down to the level of those on the bottom. Clearly, capitalism would seem to be the better approach...unless your goal is not to improve the life of your citizens, but to improve the amount of power you have as a Socialist politician.

It is not real...it is all fake. His "redistribution" is really from the middle class to the uber-wealthy Democrats in bed with the government. Even if you give more goodies to the poor, they don´t end up better off...they actually end up with less buying power because of the effects of inflation, a stagnant economy, and higher energy costs. The middle-class is the biggest loser. They not only will lose buying power, but their savings and investments become worth less and taxes from every direction eats up what is left. The uber-wealthy (which are predominately democrat and leftists) will end up with more money, power and influence. Yes, socialism only helps the rich in power. Small businesses will die because they can´t compete against the cronyism that benefits the chosen mega-multinational corporations who are friends and contributors to the government. It is all a lie. Obama doesn´t care one wit for the poor. Socialism is self-serving for the elite.

Here´e my bumper sticker idea: Redistribute the Presidency. Now.

The actress Janine Turner, from Northern Exposure fame, wrote a great article a while back on what we & her fellow celebrities would actually live like if they get their socialist way. This has to be exposed before it´s too late. We have to start talking all over the web, media, our neighborhoods, etc.

We must never stop trying to educate those around us while we still can, and while this slide to socialist oblivion is still reversible. I had a futile discussion with my Union Rep cousin in San Fran last week. But the people around us were all listening.

She said, "You know why Katrina happened, don´t you?"

I told her "Yeah, I do -- the Federal money given to Louisiana for fortifying the levies was misappropriated. The govt cronies (she loved that word) thought they could do a facelift & the levies would never be tested like they were & they failed."

She blustered around mumbling that it was GW´s fault. But she said nothing to prove it. The others in that small chocolate store´s Open House were listening, though. We must keep educating everyone with the truth. The MSM isn´t gong to doit for us. I. Am. Breitbart.

Of course he is a "redistributionist" (the real word is Socialist - anyone who believes wealth is the State´s to distribute in the first place, not the property of free individuals). But the key to the entire thing is understanding the motive behind this "redistribution". As with everything Left, the language used ("fairness" "equality") is a smokescreen for the actual agenda. What drives a Socialist like Obama is a burning, white hot desire to punish the successful, the achievers, the affluent, the self-made men who refuse to trade their integrity for a miserable life of collective liberal guilt (or, as socialists call it, "helping people"). Punishing people is the driving force. See that, and you´ve unlocked their secret.

IMHO, two things drive, or matter to, Obama. Many others on the left are the same.

1. Power-lust.
2. Antipathy to those who achieve on merit [and the more they accomplish, the greater his hate].

For those like Obama, who have accomplished nothing on personal ability, merit, and effort, the animus toward achievers is bone deep, bitter, and personal. Obama knows, consciously or unconsciously, he flatly does not deserve his position and rewards.

And his "Leftism" is a matter of convenience, not conviction. If he could get more power as a free-marketer, that´s what he´d push. Count on it.

If Obama´s a redistributionist,he´s not doing a very good job at it. The gap between rich and poor is getting wider every day.Obama and the left aren´t that interested in redistribution as they are at destroying the white middle class because that´s where most republicans are.

The liberals pretend to be in favor of taxes on the rich,while behind the scenes they funnel billions to already rich people.The amount of money "poor" people get is mere tokenism to string them along.

It´s not only people wanting a government cash dividend but standing in line for loan forgiveness of all types.Obama got his claws into college students when he took over the loan industry.Since then tuitions have exploded making the college admins and professors very happy with their new income source.

Liberal rackets and schemes are always to enrich the ruling class types,while pretending to help society´s victims.Meanwhile society´s victims stay stagnant.

re #12 -- agree, & I would add

3. Guilt (even if it is unconscious).

The entertainment/sports celebrities & career politicians -- who have never worked as hard as the middle class business owners, blue-collars, & workers for corporations -- feel guilty for having so much money while the rest of us work our @sses off.

Solution for all that guilt, as maids, nannies, chefs, body guards, etc., serve them? Ask the government to redistribute wealth -- since they can´t seem to part with their money on their own. Deep down they know the masses pay the tickets to be entertained by them & make them wealthy. But they are too selfish, or have no self discipline, to figure out a way to hand out their own mullah.

They have no idea what they are doing to our country & how badly this will go down. When is the the last time we saw a great movie out of Russia? Solaris is the only one I´ve seen in three decades. It was done around the time 2001 was. China´s only doing slightly better because of our trade with them.

When our wealth goes, so will the countries that depend on it for their own economy. We need to speak to them through their own genre. Movies, programs -- on their stations, not FOX. We have four years to do it.

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang and Dave Boyer    Original Article

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum
wage hike is nonstarter

President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

President Obama expressed the White House’s frustration with news coverage of the Affordable Care Act’s rocky rollout by taking a jab at the press on Tuesday. During his ObamaCare enrollment victory lap speech in the Rose Garden, the president swiped at reporters, who the White House believes were too eager to spotlight every incremental development associated with the site´s botched launch. “I want to make sure everybody understands – in the months, years ahead, I guarantee you there will be additional challenges to implementing this law,” Obama said. “There will be days when the website stumbles.

The White House is claiming that President Obama’s celebratory speech this afternoon in the Rose Garden was not a “victory lap” but it was clear to everyone who watched the address that it was more of a touchdown dance than a sober evaluation of the implementation of his signature health care law. Given the mistake-filled rollout of ObamaCare, the fact that the numbers reported by the government indicated that it had exceeded the seven million goal that had been set as the goal for the open enrollment period, the administration felt it had good reason to spike the ball and

A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since.

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show. The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle. In a week Democrats won’t soon forget, the Democrat-dominated California Senate took the unprecedented step Friday of voting 28-1 to suspend with pay three state senators in their own party accused or convicted of criminal conduct. State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year.

Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and
