Dow Plunges Nearly 200 Points as Lawmakers Remain at Odds Over Debt Deal

Harry Reid Tries A Trillion-Dollar Gimmick On America

Vote Odumbass Out

Barack Obama was elected based on the speeches and promises he made in 2008 and shortly after he was inaugurated. Unfortunately for America, he has failed to come through on those promises, especially those dealing with spending and the economy. The ten most egregious of these flip-flops are chronicled below:
In February 2008, Barack Obama promised that his PAYGO bill would force government to live within its means by ensuring that America would pay as it goes. After proclaiming himself to be some kind of fiscal champion, it was discovered that Obama wrote four HUGE exceptions into PAYGO that would total $2.8 TRILLION. And even though he included a $2.8 trillion loophole, he still increased the national debt by over $3.7 trillion.
During the 2008 campaign, Obama promises to reduce earmarks to 1994 levels. But after just two months in office, he signed an omnibus spending bill which included over 8,500 earmarks totaling $7.8 billion. His excuse? Democrats in Congress threatened to fight him over all of his other policies if he didn't give them what they wanted...and instead of doing what he promised and what was best for the country, Mr. Obama showed the country he has no backbone.
In January 2009, Obama claimed that he would tackle entitlement reform and that kicking the can down the road was no longer an option. Since then, what has been done to reform entitlements? The only thing Obama has done was to cut $500 billion from Medicare, hardly reform. Even though the Medicare Actuary has stated that Medicare will be insolvent by 2024, but what has Obama done? Demagogued any attempt to actually reform and save the programs, without offering any solutions of his own.
In January 2009, Obama said that he would make the difficult decisions to get our deficit under control. He also said he wouldn't punt the obligation. Instead, Obama...punted! He gave the tough choices to a fiscal commission...and then ignored their suggestions!

In just two years, Obama has managed to add $3.7 TRILLION to our national debt, increased the unemployment rate to a steady 9$, drove 3.8 million people to poverty and prolonged our recession and recovery. Without his policies, we most likely would have recovered by now, as evidenced by all other previous recessions. If he won't admit that his policies are destroying our country, then next November we have to VOTE HIM OUT!

Please CLICK HERE to help AmeriPAC with our media efforts to make sure Obama is a ONE TERM president. Our country hasn't been able to afford the past 3 years under Obama, and we CERTAINLY can't afford another four if he's reelected.

In February 2009, Obama not only insisted that his stimulus would keep unemployment under 8%, but also said it would be careful with taxpayer money. What really happened? The stimulus failed on all accounts, unemployment skyrocketed, the jobs "created or saved" by the stimulus were lost once the money ran out and it did nothing to actually stimulate the economy.
Also in February of 2009, Obama pledged to cut the U.S. deficit in half by the end of his first term. So where are we now? Each of his three budgets so far have created record deficits, doubling what he promised. Even though Congressional Democrats said that his budget for FY2012 was a credible blueprint to get our country back on track, he realized it actually made our problems worse and therefore gave a do-over speech in April.
In March of 2009, Obama said that his pork-laden Omnibus was the last time something like that would happen. Hah! Immediately after that, Obama accepted Appropriations bills which contained over 9,000 earmarks totaling almost $16 billion!
In August 2009, Obama said that health care costs needed to be contained, which was his basis for ramming through Obamacare, which the country never wanted (and continues to want repealed). Instead, according to the Wall Street Journal, "U.S. Health Spending is projected to rise 9.2% in 2014, up from the 6.6% projected before the law took effect." So instead of making healthcare more affordable in order to keep its costs from bankrupting our country, Obamacare actually sped up the process!

In just two years, Obama has managed to add $3.7 TRILLION to our national debt, increased the unemployment rate to a steady 9$, drove 3.8 million people to poverty and prolonged our recession and recovery. Without his policies, we most likely would have recovered by now, as evidenced by all other previous recessions. If he won't admit that his policies are destroying our country, then next November we have to VOTE HIM OUT!

In February of this year, Obama said his budget would not add to the debt, but instead used budgetary gimmicks he so often chastised. His 2012 budget actually adds $13 TRILLION in new debt over the next decade. Politifact even rated his statements as false since they would mislead Americans into thinking...that he wasn't lying!
In April of this year, Obama gave a speech outlining a new budget plan since his first attempt was proven a lie and a bust. However he never produced this new budget, and the Director of the Congressional Budget Office stated "we don't estimate speeches." How embarrassing! So now that Congressional Republicans have produced a budget, debated the debt limit and produced a plan to solve that, the "Gang of 6" is about to release its plan, Senate Democrats claim to have their own budget and have released that to a select few AND Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid have produced their own budget deficit solution - we still have not seen Obama's speech translated into legislation. There is no excuse for this, he has had MORE than enough time to produce this budget to be scored.
In just two years, Obama has managed to add $3.7 TRILLION to our national debt, increased the unemployment rate to a steady 9$, drove 3.8 million people to poverty and prolonged our recession and recovery.

It's clear that Barack Obama said anything to get elected. Now it's obvious that he will say anything in order to get re-elected. Will you believe his lies?

The only promise Obama has kept was to pass a healthcare law, and it was a complete failure! We can't give him another chance to further wreck our country.

There is a new little wrinkle in Attorney General Eric Holder's claims of ignorance regarding the Gunrunner Scandal – Holder's Department of Justice requested and received $10 million in funding specifically for "Project Gunrunner" as part of Obama's 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, aka the Stimulus Bill.

The damning evidence can be found on page 16 of the Act, under the heading "Department of Justice" and subheading "Office of Justice Programs"! According to the Library of Congress the section reads as follows:

"For an additional amount for 'State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance', $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to 'Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses' for the ATF Project Gunrunner."

Eric Holder not only knew about Gunrunner, he requested $10 million to fund it. The only question now is, how much did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?


"You've got people who are dead. You have weapons that are missing and you have an administration that doesn't seem to want to take any accountability for it," Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).

Like something out of a bad conspiracy movie, it is beginning to appear that Holder agreed to the now infamous "Gunrunner/Gun Walking/Fast & Furious" program in part to help Second Amendment hating Leftists who sought to impose gun control by "proving" that law abiding American gun shops were responsible for Mexican gang violence.

The plan might have worked brilliantly were it not for one murdered U.S. border patrol agent and a handful of dedicated ATF agents brave and honorable enough to blow the whistle on their own organization's shameful sellout of the U.S. Constitution.

Even now, as the true cost and body count resulting from Holder's betrayal become evident, the Left just isn't ready to give up. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said in a statement that "no legitimate examination of this issue will be complete without analyzing our nation's gun laws, which allow tens of thousands of assault weapons to flood into Mexico from the United States every year, including fifty caliber sniper rifles, multiple AK variants, and scores of others." Rep. Cummings apparently does not care that it was the U.S. Government, not its citizens, who sent these guns – in violation of standing U.S. law – to Mexico in the first place. Anything to kill the Second Amendment – even killing our own brave border patrol field agents!


As the damning evidence and criminal implications mount, Eric Holder's Department of Justice seems intent upon stonewalling – adding contempt of Congress to the possible list of charges levied against the ATF and DOJ.

ATF supervisors, acting as Holder's "yes men" and co-conspirators have already been caught red handed in a web of lies poured upon a suspicious Congress and a shocked nation. While supervisors told the House Oversight Committee that no guns were ever allowed across the border, whistle blowing ATF field agents have provided ample evidence to the contrary. For every document the ATF powerbrokers have refused to turn over, brave agents-on-the-ground have turned over their own records, including emails from the very supervisors denying "Project Gun Walker" (now being called "Project Gunrunner" by the mainstream media) which, in the higher-ups' own words and directives, confirms the entire gun walking operation.

ATF supervisors, surprised that their lies had been exposed, are now refusing to turn documents over to House Oversight Chairman Chairman Darrell Issa's investigators, claiming the need for redaction of sensitive and classified information. Chairman Issa has made it clear that he wants these documents unmolested. But given the current state of our criminal government, it is doubtful he will receive the evidence any time soon, if at all.


We must stand up for our rights before a corrupt Eric Holder and tyrannical Barack Obama seize our guns and our liberty without any hope of restoration or renewal.

BACKGROUND: ERIC HOLDER'S LONG EXPERIENCE WITH GUN RUNNERS: Holder has been defending a Columbian gun running scam since 2007

The DOJ/ATF "Gun Walker" scandal isn't the first time Eric Holder's name has come up in association with gun runners and terrorist organizations. Just a few years ago Holder acted as defense attorney for one of the largest gun running scandals in recent history.


In 2007, then private attorney Eric Holder defended the group that funneled $1.7 million into the Columbian group AUC (Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia) – a U.S. designated terrorist organization. In addition to funding, Chiquita International Brands (CIB) helped the group illegally import over 3,000 AK-47s and 5 million rounds of ammunition into a country ripped apart by drug wars. And Eric Holder not only defended CIB, he initially argued to the court that CIB had done nothing wrong. When that did not work, he helped CIB negotiate a relatively small fine and eliminate legal penalties for the CIB employees who facilitated the illicit weapons transactions.


Now it comes to light that Eric Holder's own U.S. Department of Justice, through its reporting agency the ATF, instituted a policy of assisting in the illegal export of guns to Mexican drug cartels. ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) agents reportedly not only turned a blind eye toward illegal gun sales, field agents were forced by superiors to actively facilitate the transfers. And in at least one case, that of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, the cartels used those "gun walked" weapons to murder U.S. officers.

In his recent testimony before Congress, Eric Holder claimed absolutely no knowledge of the "Gun Walker" program. But given his previous work with gun runners, it is not far-fetched to imagine that Holder not only knew, but had a large hand in the program.


Frankly, the ongoing DOJ/ATF "Gun Walker" scandal represents only the latest in a long line of disgraces associated with Attorney General Eric Holder, including numerous instances of his refusal to enforce or even abide by the law, such as the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case, the ACORN Voter corruption and funding scandals, federal court orders regarding "ObamaCare" and Congressional subpoenas, and his shocking dereliction of duty regarding the Defense of Marriage Act. Rather than stand as the "top cop" and ultimate sentinel and protector of our nation's rule of law, Holder seems to be far more interested in traducing the law to suit his own cronies, radical friends, colleagues, business associates – plus random "clients" and high bidders. How much longer will we tolerate corruption and outright trampling of the Constitution from America's highest law enforcement office? Our current Attorney General is not fit to lead the Department of Justice. ERIC HOLDER MUST GO!

Congressional hearings into the "Gun Walker" case are happening now, so we must act quickly to ensure the Department of Justice can be cleansed of the cancer destroying it from within. Please fax Congress now! And please consider making a donation to help Life & Liberty PAC continue our crucial whistleblowing operations.

Obama Failure And Socialism | Stop Back Door Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

Dear Patriot,

Emergency legislation to stop Barack Obama from granting back door amnesty to millions of illegal aliens is being introduced into the House Judiciary Committee by Texas Republican Congressman Lamar Smith.

Rep. Smith is the Chairman of the committee and we need your support TODAY to help to get this critically important bill passed

As many as 78% of Illgal Aliens Apprehended

Have Police Records - Yet, Obama Wants them Here!

Obama’s chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), has issued a new policy memorandum signaling major changes in the Secure Communities program which was designed to identify and deport illegal aliens who have been arrested and are in police custody.

The new policy is purposely designed to allow millions of illegal and criminal immigrants to remain in the United States. This is Obama’s payoff to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, one which he hopes will hispanic votes to his campaign for re-election

In a “Dear Colleague” letter sent to members of Congress by Rep. Smith, he warned that the new ICE memorandum grants almost unlimited discretion to agency officials to set aside the deportation of illegal aliens.

The Obama Administration took provisions from the “DREAM Act” and placed them in the ICE memo where it has the de facto force of a law passed by Congress. The “DREAM” Act is a “stealth amnesty” bill that would have allowed millions of illegal aliens to remain in the United States legally. The bill failed to pass Congress on three occasions.

Obama is attempting to go around Congress by implementing the provisions of this legislation by executive order. By this action, Obama has made a mockery of the legislative process and trampled on the Constitution.

Barack Obama comes from the Chicago school of politics. In Chicago you don’t accept defeat as an expression of the will of the people--you bend the rules to get your way.

Well, this time, it’s the Constitution that is getting bent--the Constitution that Barack Obama swore an oath to “preserve, protect and defend”. Rep. Smith’s bill will remind Obama that in our system, Congress passes the laws--not the President.

In usurping the power of Congress, Obama has clearly crossed the line. Congress is a co-equal branch of government and cannot stand by and allow the President to use back door executive action to nullify a congressional decision.

Obama has been more than willing to shove aside the Constitution when it gets in his way.

Obamacare was rammed through with no one reading the bill. Obama overruled Justice Department and Pentagon lawyers who advised him to get Congressional approval for his intervention in Libya.

He tried to bring back the so-called “fairness doctrine” as a way to silence conservative opponents on talk radio. And, his FCC appointees tried to seize control of the internet.

Now he’s trying to impose the provisions of a law defeated by Congress.

That’s the way Obama likes it. No dissenting voices--no respect for democratic institutions and no opposition.

Obama promised to strengthen our borders but never had any intention of doing so. Instead he stopped construction of the border fence and tied the hands of the Border Patrol. He has been dishonest from the beginning about protecting our borders.

He claims that our borders are more secure than ever. Ask those who live along the border if conditions have improved since Obama took office. They categorically reject that claim.

And, now the new immigration policy virtually guarantees that the deportation of illegal aliens will come to a screeching halt.

The new rules call for the application of “relevant factors” when agency officials are deciding whether or not to deport. Here’s a partial list:

Attending school; pregnancy; illness; old-age; under-age minor; length of presence in the U.S.; relative in the military; ties to the community; spouse is pregnant; victim of domestic violence or other crime; cooperative attitude; caretaker of a sick relative; spouse suffers from mental or physical illness; spouse, child or parent a citizen or permanent resident; conditions in the home country; and the catch-all factor of “agency’s civil immigration enforcement priorities”.

In other words, if any of these factors apply to a case, the officials are expected to weigh that in favor of not deporting the individual.

These categories cover literally millions of illegal aliens.

That’s why it is so vital to flood Congress with faxes of support for the Smith bill. The Obama Administration is trying to get away with rule by executive decree.

Twenty million illegal aliens are living within our borders. The vast majority of them are low skilled individuals. The Heritage Foundation estimates that low skilled individuals receive $3 in government services for every $1 they pay in taxes--that is if they pay taxes at all.

Our schools, hospitals, and prisons are overcrowded because of the unplanned for influx of millions of illegal aliens.

Parks and highways and public facilities--like post offices and motor vehicle departments--are overcrowded for the same reason.

Our Social Security system is under attack from illegal aliens. Over 8 million fake social security numbers have been given to employers by illegal aliens seeking employment.

Immigrants are traditionally allowed to bring relatives to the United States to “re-unite families”. If Obama gets his way and illegal aliens are allowed to become citizens, millions now living in Mexico, Central America and other parts of the world will come to the United States and add 100 million to 200 million new “citizens” to our population in the next 20 years. These new “immigrants” could comprise as much as one-third of the U.S. population.

It is up to Congress to stop Obama’s suicidal policies from remaining in effect. Stop the granting of stealth amnesty by supporting Rep. Smith’s emergency legislation.

The greatness and character of our country should not be sacrificed so the Democrats can win another election. Take action today.
