US Government Is World´s
3rd Largest Economy

Breitbart Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/1/2014 9:09:18 AM

Monday´s open enrollment deadline for ObamaCare, which, with its subsidies and tax credits, represents the largest expansion of government, is a good time to assess the total scale of government in the US. Appreciating the full scope of the US government is difficult, because its activities are undertaken at the federal, state, and local levels. Adding all of this together, government in the US consumes more than $6 trillion a year. This makes the US government the world´s 3rd largest economy. The United States economy produces just over $16 trillion in total goods and services every year. China´s economic output

Yes, that´s where your money is going.

Wrap your American brain around this one:

There are 38 Million people in the State of California and there are 38 Million people in the City of Cairo (BFE).

Buckle Up, folks ´cuz we are losing this war.

The Federal government has not only spent all your taxes on so much waste, fraud, and abuse as well as social programs that encourage deplorable behaviors, they have spent the next seven years of your taxes in advance. At $2.5 trillion in receipts, it will take about 7 years to pay for the things we´ve already spent. Of course, in those seven years, we´ll be racking up $24.5 trillion more in expenses which need to be payed for, assuming zero growth.

How´s it going to be payed for? Out of YOUR savings. Inflation will eat away your savings and you will pay for it that way. Its happening and congress doesn´t even have to do anything impolitic, like raise taxes.

The US Government is the World´s 3rd Largest Economy, and the USA is the world´s larges debtor nation. Something is very wrong with this country.

Blame the Demonrats, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi for the continued spending into oblivion.

McAllen, TX -Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, freed after years of captivity in Afghanistan and returned to active duty this week, has retained an attorney — a military law expert from Yale. Eugene Fidell, who teaches military justice at Yale Law School, told the Los Angeles Times that he has been representing Bergdahl for about a week and is working pro bono. Fidell said he has received a variety of reactions to his decision to work with Bergdahl. "There are people who harbor ill will toward my client," Fidell said, but at the same time he has received emails "wishing my client

Pentagon Loses Many Cars
Belonging to American Soldiers

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

(Video) FALFURRIAS, Texas—A natural gas pipeline being constructed in the western portions of Brooks County is rapidly becoming a super-highway for illegal immigrants struggling to sneak around the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint located in the county. Workers report regularly seeing illegals making their way along the pathway of the pipeline. Brooks County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Walden brought Breitbart Texas to the construction area during a ride-along. He said the pipleline has already become a massive flow point for the illegal immigrants who struggle to find their way north to an area where they can be picked up. Pipeline construction workers

The Democratic National Committee is holding a contest to win a trip to meet President Obama during his fundraising swing through Los Angeles on July 23, when he will attend a fundraiser at the home of “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes. An e-mail announcing the sweepstakes went out on Tuesday afternoon, with the entrants eligible also for airfare and hotel accommodations and a trip to a reception, the details of which were unspecified.

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

To the dismay of Jon Stewart, Hillary Clinton did not make her big announcement on "The Daily Show" on Tuesday. The comedian and talk show host opened his interview with the former secretary of state and possible presidential candidate by praising her memoir, "Hard Choices," before pivoting to the question Clinton is asked everywhere she goes. "It´s an incredibly complex and well-reasoned and eyewitness view," Stewart said of the book. "I think I speak for everybody when I say no one cares. They just want to know if you´re running for president. Are you?" "I was going to make an

GOP, Dems Fight Over Legality

Constitutional lawyers backing a planned House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama told a congressional committee Wednesday that the action is justified because Obama has exceeded his powers in carrying out his health care law. Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said he wants to take the legal

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection. (nyti.ms/1na1K7y) Twenty-First Century Fox confirmed that it had made the formal proposal to Time Warner last month. "The Time Warner Board of Directors

The new self-serve beer stations at Minnesota´s Target Field might herald the future of stadium concessions - but they are hardly the most incredible food or drink options available nationwide. While the Twins basked in the glory of the latest ballpark innovation which debuted on Sunday, the rest of the country carried on pushing the boundaries of game day fast-food away from simple peanuts and hot dogs. However, nowadays a game is not complete without a selection of calorific monstrosities that would turn the stomach of the carb-conscious and healthy, but delights the average fan.

WASHINGTON — The White House likes to use a phrase of tingling adventure to describe the president’s recent penchant for wandering the country talking to people: “The bear is loose.” There are three problems with this unbearable metaphor: Barack Obama is not in captivity, he’s not a bear, and he’s not loose. As Voltaire said of the Holy Roman Empire, it was “neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an empire.” When our whippetlike president travels on Air Force One from staged photo-op to staged photo-op and then to coinciding fund-raiser to coinciding fund-raiser, encased by the White House travel behemoth and

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of
