Washington reporters parrot
Obama´s ´income inequality´ mantra

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2014 6:51:02 PM

Washington´s political reporters, in lightning knee-jerk speed, have embraced President Obama´s Robin Hood war on “income inequality,” the latest example of the president´s success in using the bully pulpit to steer attention to his new populist campaign. The issue took center stage Wednesday during a briefing from the nonpartisan Business Roundtable meant to focus on the group´s agenda to push economic growth from 2 percent to 4 percent, but instead saw several reporters pestering the group´s president and chairman about the minimum wage and income distribution. At first, Randall Stephenson, the Roundtable chairman and CEO of AT&T, and Roundtable President

Comments:
Why is he even surprised?? This is what 0bama expects and they perform exactly as expected. They do that with every single news story and in most cases say the exact same words. Mark Levin calls them the Praetorian Guard. What a perfect description.

So, everyone should make the same amount of money, no matter what kind of job you have? Do these idiots EVER think? No, it just sounds so "fair". Complete and utter morons.

Among those who faithfully practice what God had commanded (Do not covet), we are happy to see the richest person double his money if the poorest can get an increase of 1%, because we know that the poorest person is objectively better off.

We feel the same whether we are that poorest or that richest person (or in between).

God blesses the communities that embrace that ideal.

The envious are never happy.

Randall Stephenson is the jerk pushing homosexuals on the Boy Scouts. I´m surprised he isn´t peddling Barry´s income inequality rubbish as well. Engler should have asked these reporters if their salaries should be slashed so that the ladies who vacuum their office carpets every night can have a raise and then called out for their hypocrisy and partisan hackery when they said no.

So, how much do the various members of the Washington press corps make?

I´m sure the deans of the White House press corps are willing to sacrifice pay so they´re making as much as the reporters in Podunk, hmmmm?

If "income inequality" is bad, then "income equality" (or, as the history books call it, communism) must be good. Why Obama has not been called on this outrageous anti-American Marxism is anyone´s guess. Oh, wait...

Its not rocket science to push the growth rate from an anemic 2% to 4%.
1.Cut wasteful spending and outright fraud (80% is in HHS).
2.Cut marginal tax rates back to where Ronald Reagan had them
3.Eliminate unnecessary regulation of economic activity (EPA, 0bamacare, Frank/Dodd the list is long).
4.Return State policy to ensure equal access to opportunity instead of trying to circumvent the Constitution to engineer outcomes.
Sure bet none of these figured in the Roundtable.

It doesn´t stop at income equality. This is what Obama is all about. Equality. As I have commented before, not everything is going to be equal or fair. I guess I should have some kind of hissy fit or stomp up and down because my family has had a lot of cancer and death. Obama tries ever so hard to get people riled up. People fall for it.

Where does it stop? 50 grand or a 100 grand to put pickle slices on a Big Cheesy Burger and packets of ketchup and mustard in the bag at the drive thru window. Some jobs are just entry level training for the future. If you choose to stay there then don´t complain about the pay scale.
Not everyone can be equal and the rich people hire and create jobs not the homeless people. Five dollars an hour to sweep floors and put pickles on a sandwich is plenty enough for the skill required.
If anyone wants more get an education or invent something or be a fraud and become president of Amerika.

It is true that there is income inequality in this country. It is also true that there is effort inequality. There is a huge difference between the amount of work that some people put into their lives and the utter slovenliness of others.

And there is also talent inequality. God did not make every person the same. Some have great skills in sports and are rightfully rewarded for it. Others have great skills in science or business and deserve compensation for their contributions.

I doubt that Obama will encompass these fundamental truths in his upcoming State of the Union speech.

Income equality is communism. Just like social justice is lawlessness. Every evil philosophy that has come down the pike is being trumpeted by Obama and the media. If you have any doubt that they are actively trying to destroy our way of life, put that aside. It is the biggest rolling coup in history. Frankly, short of the unthinkable, I don´t see how this can be stopped. The government and media have thrown caution to the wind and are preaching communism and their brain numbed followers will cheer. Folks, we are in serious trouble. Propaganda today, violent persuasion tomorrow. Read history and tell me different.

It´s an old stat but roughly 80% of the worlds population live on less than $10 per day. From the dawn of human kind our condition has been pretty darned hardscrabble. The path dare I say progress to individual liberty from the Magna Carta to the Enlightenment, English bill of rights, Mayflower compact all the way to our constitution we have seen the human condition improve. We can equalize alright but at the cost of destroying the one mechanism known to facilitate our profoundly exceptional lifes. Google Milton Freedman Phil Donahue interview. I lack the skills to be as concise as Freedman.

The ´press´ is just the propaganda machine for the left and they are not smart. The sad part is how the republicans in congress are sooooo afraid of them. Upholding the Constitution that was paid for with the blood of patriots means less than ´bad press´. It´s such a sad ending to watch so many of our elected representatives cave in to the blackmail of the press while the men who gave us this country openly announced "Give me liberty or give me death" and fulfilled that statement with courage and conviction. The press and obama have demonstrated the lengths to which they will go to in order to punish anyone like the tea party who stick to their convictions.

Go to Vegas and win exactly what is set by Obama´s latest communist law, to win. Go to the horse races and watch all the ponies slowly trot to the finish line, it doesn´t matter who wins. Old nags, not put out to pasture because they can win exactly the same amount as the best young thoroughbreds. The Waldorf jammed up with permanent occupants who now don´t have to stay in their flea bag boarding house that has "equal" rates. The same low quality food in all restaurants
This is communist utopia.

Obama´s last minute desperation to appeal to the most
ignorant of his diminishing herd of blinded followers, is a communist Marxian Leninist ultimate propaganda play that simply will not work. All those TV Diane Sawyers who propagate his utopian fantasies, are also on their last, desperate legs of credibility.
They are all Orwellian crazy, and their remaining time is up!
Obama´s speeches have always made sense, once you realize he´s talking to the most inane non productive wastrels in America. Now, with his Stalinist "equality" bit
he´s reaching out to the lowest, most abominable "takers" of them all.

It is obvious this latest "dead cat of Marxist boilerplate" (such a great phrase) is a head fake to A) get attention off the latest Benghazi report and B) keep the masses stirred up (i. e. Alinsky´s "Rules for Radicals"). Would he like to get traction on "income inequality?" Of course, but this is more an attempt to co-op the 24 hour news cycle before the weekend.

If they really want to solve ´inequality,´ which I´m not convinced they are, they are going to have to answer the question of why some many adults are only making wage in the first place. Let´s examine these people and look at why they are in these situations. I don´t think Wall Street is the main problem.

Any "increase" in the "income gap" can be largely explained by people falling out of the middle class., thus the "average" gap is toward everyone getting poorer, with stagnant wages, lost benefits with increased costs of just about everything, or complete loss of income. How stupid do you have to be to be a "journalist?"

Guys, we are preaching for the choir. We all know these naked truths. Last 100 years of the world confirm them: fascism, communism, USSR, Cuba, Vietnam...
Drones, not us, need to learn them. But how? Leftists own the media (and much of the country - academia, entertainment industry, banking, now insurance industry). Is there a way to explain the truth to the low info people? I see the first step: country needs conservative mainstream media. Local newspapers and TV. Otherwise people will continue to get the propaganda from Pravda and single channel of Central TV, like it was in USSR or China.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
