Just who is the REAL Barack Obama?

He has written several books. His story was told by his wife and others at the Democratic National Convention. The media portray him as a man who rose from nothing to become president of the United States. But is Barack Obama’s story real? An in-depth report now shows that much of what Obama has said or what the media have said about his past is not quite accurate… to say the least!

The Washington Examiner has released a stunning analysis which compares the claims and stories regarding Barack Obama’s childhood and early political life with what actually occurred.

In an effort to get a clearer picture of Obama — his shaping influences, his core beliefs, his political ambitions and his accomplishments — The Washington Examiner conducted a four-month inquiry, interviewing dozens of his supporters and detractors in Chicago and elsewhere, and studying countless court transcripts, government reports and other official documents.

Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley Fired for Criticizing Islam at Joint Forces Staff College

In the Spring of this year, US Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was condemned by the Joints Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and relieved of teaching duties at Joint Forces Staff College for teaching a course judged to be offensive to Islam.

The course he taught, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism, was an elective course that Lt. Col. Dooley’s superiors judged as presenting Islam in a negative way. His superiors were persuaded to come to this conclusion after receiving an October 2011 letter in which 57 Muslim organizations claimed to be offended by the course.

The fact that Lt. Col. Dooley is a highly decorated combat veteran with  nearly 20 years of service under his belt apparently held little or no sway with the JCS.  As a matter of fact, JCS Chairman General Martin Dempsey “personally attacked” Lt. Col. Dooley on C-Span on May 10, 2012, during a Pentagon News Conference.

Yet the craziest part of all this is that “the course content, the guest speakers, and the method of instruction” for the course was all approved by the the Joint Forces Staff College “years ago.”

Former CIA agent Claire M. Lopez commented on the state of things: “All US military Combatant Commands, Services, the National Guard Bureau, and Joint Chiefs are under Dempsey’s Muslim Brotherhood-dictated order to ensure that henceforth, no US military course will ever again teach truth about Islam that the jihadist enemy finds offensive (or just too informative).”

God bless Lt. Col. Dooley for possessing the courage of his convictions.

100 Days Until Taxmageddon

    Sunday will mark the start of the 100-day countdown to “Taxmageddon” – the date the largest  tax hikes in the history of America will take effect.  They will hit  families and small businesses in three great waves on January 1, 2013:

First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief

In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for small  business owners, families, and investors (later re-upped by President Obama and  Democrat Congress in 2010).  The following tax hikes will occur on January  1, 2013:

Personal income tax rates will rise on January 1,  2013.  The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent  (this is also the rate at which the majority of small business profits are  taxed).  The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent.  All the  rates in between will also rise.  Itemized deductions and personal  exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as  higher marginal tax rates.  The full list of marginal rate hikes is  below:

-The 10% bracket rises to a new and expanded 15%

-The 25% bracket rises to 28%

-The 28% bracket rises to 31%

-The 33% bracket rises to 36%

-The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%

Higher taxes on marriage and family coming on January 1,  2013.  The “marriage penalty” (narrower tax brackets for married  couples) will return from the first dollar of taxable income.  The child  tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.  The standard  deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single  level.

Middle Class Death Tax returns on January 1, 2013.  The  death tax is currently 35% with an exemption of $5 million ($10 million for  married couples).  For those dying on or after January 1 2013, there is a  55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million.  A person leaving  behind two homes and a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax  bill to their loved ones.

Higher tax rates on savers and investors on January 1,  2013.  The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year  to 23.8 percent in 2013.  The top dividends tax will rise from 15 percent  this year to 43.4 percent in 2013.  This is because of scheduled rate hikes  plus Obamacare’s investment surtax.

Second Wave: Obamacare Tax Hikes

There are twenty new or higher  taxes in Obamacare.  Some have already gone into effect (the tanning  tax, the medicine cabinet tax, the HSA withdrawal tax, W-2 health insurance  reporting, and the “economic substance doctrine”).  Several more will go  into effect on January 1, 2013.  They include: Read the rest of this entry »
