    • Free Speech Zones: King Lincoln vs. KingObamaThomas DiLorenzolewrockwell.comJanuary 22, 2013During today’s coronation of King Obama HisMajesty graciously set aside a small “strip of[Freedom] plaza” in D.C. as a “free speechzone.” In keeping with the theme ofCoronation Week, I can’t help thinking of thecomparison to King Lincoln, whose own freespeech zones were prisons like Fort Lafayettein New York harbor, where civilian dissentersto the Lincoln regime were imprisoned.Having illegally suspended Habeas Corpus,the Lincoln regime rounded up tens ofthousands of Northern political opponents,including elected officials, newspaper editorsand owners, and just about anyone overheardcriticizing Lincoln or his regime. Among theresidents of Fort Lafayette were members ofthe Maryland state assembly, Baltimore policecommissioners, and Francis Key Howard, thegrandson of Francis Scott Key who wasimprisoned for publishing an editorial in hisnewspaper that was critical of the illegal suspension of Habeas Corpus. In his book Freedom UnderLincoln, historian Dean Sprague wrote that the only place in the Northern states where freedom ofspeech existed during the Lincoln administration was in these gulags. Compared to this I suppose KingObama looks like a Jeffersonian champion of free speech.
    • 37 Statistics Which Show How Four YearsOf Obama Have Wrecked The U.S.EconomyMichael SnyderEconomic CollapseJan 22, 2013The mainstream media covered theinauguration of Barack Obamawith breathless anticipation onMonday, but should we really becelebrating another four years ofObama? The truth is that the firstfour years of Obama were anabsolute train wreck for the U.S.economy. Over the past fouryears, the percentage of workingage Americans with a job hasfallen, median household incomehas declined by more than $4000,poverty in the U.S. has absolutelyexploded and our national debt hasballooned to ridiculousproportions. Of course all of theblame for the nightmarishperformance of the economyshould not go to Obama alone.Certainly much of what we areexperiencing today is the direct result of decades of very foolish decisions by Congress and previouspresidential administrations. And of course the Federal Reserve has more influence over the economythan anyone else does. But Barack Obama steadfastly refuses to criticize anything that the FederalReserve has done and he even nominated Ben Bernanke for another term as Fed Chairman despite hishorrific track record of failure, so at a minimum Barack Obama must be considered to be complicit inthe Fed’s very foolish policies. Despite what the Obama administration tells us, the U.S. economy hasbeen in decline for a very long time, and that decline has accelerated in many ways over the past fouryears. Just consider the statistics that I have compiled below. The following are 37 statistics whichshow how four years of Obama have wrecked the U.S. economy…1. During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average ofabout 11,000 per day.2. At the beginning of the Obama era, 32 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 47million Americans are on food stamps.3. According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combinedpopulations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa,
    • Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.” 4. The number of Americans receiving money directly from the federal government each month has grown from 94 million in the year 2000 tomore than 128 million today. 5. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income” at this point. 6. The unemployment rate in the United States is exactly where it was (7.8 percent) when Barack Obama first entered the White House in January 2009.7. When Barack Obama first entered the White House, 60.6 percent of all working age Americans had ajob. Today, only 58.6 percent of all working age Americans have a job.8. During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” soared by anastounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total.9. During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose bymore than 18 percent.10. The Obama years have been absolutely devastating for small businesses in America. According toeconomist Tim Kane, the following is how the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaksdown by presidential administration…Bush Sr.: 11.3Clinton: 11.2Bush Jr.: 10.8Obama: 7.811. Median household income in America hasfallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it hasdeclined by over $4000 during that time span.12. The economy is not producing nearly enoughjobs for the hordes of young people now enteringthe workforce. Approximately 53 percentof allU.S. college graduates under the age of 25 wereeither unemployed or underemployed in 2011.13. According to a report from the NationalEmployment Law Project, 58 percent of the jobsthat have been created since the end of therecession have been low paying jobs.14. Back in 2007, about 28 percent of all working
    • families were considered to be among “the working poor”. Today, that number is up to 32 percent even though our politicians tell us that the economy is supposedly recovering. 15. According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, only 24.6 percent of all of the jobs in the United States are “good jobs” at this point. 16. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before. 17. According to the Economic Policy Institute,the United States is losinghalf a million jobs to China every single year.18. The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by theWorld Economic Forum for four years in a row.19. According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percentof all global economic activityin 2001. That number declined steadily over the course of the next decade and was only at 21.6 percentin 2011.20. The United States actually has plenty of oil and we should not have to import oil from the MiddleEast. We need to drill for more oil, but Obama has been very hesitant to do that. Under Bill Clinton,the number of drilling permits approved rose by 58 percent. Under George W. Bush, the number ofdrilling permits approved rose by 116 percent. Under Barack Obama, the number of drilling permitsapproved actuallydecreased by 36 percent.21. When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of gasoline was $1.84. Today, theaverage price of a gallon of gasoline is$3.26.22. Under Barack Obama, the United States has lost more than 300,000 education jobs.23. For the first time ever, more than a million public school students in the United States arehomeless. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.24. Families that have a head of household under the age of 30 now have a poverty rate of 37 percent.25. More than three times as many new homes were sold in the United States in 2005 as were sold in2012.26. Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five yearsin a row.27. Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president.
    • 28. Today, 77 percent of allAmericans live paycheck topaycheck at least part of thetime.29. It is being projected thatObamacare will add 16 millionmore Americans to the Medicaidrolls.30. The total amount of moneythat the federal government givesdirectly to the American peoplehas grown by 32 percent sinceBarack Obama becamepresident.31. The Obama administrationhas been spending money onsome of the most insane thingsimaginable. For example, in2011 the Obama administrationspent $592,527 on a study thatsought to figure out once and forall why chimpanzees throwpoop.32. U.S. taxpayers spend more than 20 times as much on the Obamas as British taxpayers spend on theroyal family.33. The U.S. government has run a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars every single year underBarack Obama.34. When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent. Today, itis up to 103 percent. 35. During Obama’s first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined. 36. As I wrote about yesterday, when you break it down the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you ready to contribute your share? 37. If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has
    • accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take morethan 184,000 years to pay it off.But despite all of these numbers, the mainstream media and the left just continue to shower BarackObama with worship and praise. Newsweek recently heralded Obama’s second term as “The SecondComing“, and at Obama’s pre-inauguration church service Reverand Ronald Braxton openly comparedObama to Moses… At Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, Braxton reportedly crafted his speech around Obama’s personal political slogan: “Forward!” Obama, said Braxton, was just like Moses facing the Red Sea: “forward is the only option … The people couldn’t turn around. The only thing that they could do was to go forward.” Obama, said Braxton, would have to overcome all obstacles – like opposition from Republicans, presumably, or the bounds of the Constitution. Braxton continued, “Mr. President, stand on the rock,” citing to Moses standing on Mount Horeb as his people camped outside the land of Israel. But it wasn’t enough to compare Obama with the founder of Judaism and the prophet of the Bible. Braxton added that Obama’s opponents were like the Biblical enemies of Moses, and that Obama would have to enter the battle because “sometimes enemies insist on doing it the hard way.”So what do you think the next four years of Obama will bring?
    • Nobel Peace Prize Nominee: Obama AsksMilitary Leaders If They Will “Fire On USCitizens”Paul Joseph WatsonInfowars.comJanuary 22, 2013Shock claim purported to come from“one of America’s foremost militaryheroes”2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee JimGarrow shockingly claims he was toldby a top military veteran that theObama administration’s “litmus test”for new military leaders is whether ornot they will obey an order to fire onU.S. citizens.Garrow was nominated three years ago forthe prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and isthe founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, anorganization dedicated to rescuing babygirls from “gendercide” in China. Garrow has been personally involved in “helping rescue more than36,000 Chinese baby girls from death.” He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice on the Internet,which makes his claim all the more disturbing.“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” indetermining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “Thenew litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who willnot are being removed,” Garrow wrote on his Facebook page, later following up the post by adding the
    • man who told him is, “one of America’sforemost military heroes,” whose goal indivulging the information was to “sound thealarm.”Garrow’s claim is even more explosive giventhat the country is in the throes of a nationaldebate about gun control, with gun rightsadvocates keen to insist that the founders put thesecond amendment in the Constitution primarilyas a defense against government tyranny.It also follows reports on Sunday that GeneralJames Mattis, head of the United States CentralCommand, “is being told to vacate his officeseveral months earlier than planned.”Concerns over US troops being given orders tofire on American citizens in the event of mass gun confiscation first arose in 1995 when hundreds ofMarines at 29 Palms, California were given a survey as part of an academic project by Navy LieutenantCommander Ernest Guy Cunningham which asked the Marines if they would, “Fire upon U.S. citizenswho refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the United States government.”The survey was subsequently leaked because many of the Marines who took it were shocked by thetone of the question.The US Military has clearly outlined innumerable civil emergency scenarios under which troops wouldbe authorized to fire on U.S. citizens.In July 2012, the process by which this could take place was made clear in a leaked US Army MilitaryPolice training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (PDF) dating from 2006. Similar plans werealso outlined in an updated manual released in 2010 entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and ResettlementOperations.The 2006 document outlines how military assets will be used to “help local and state authorities torestore and maintain law and order” in the event of mass riots, civil unrest or a declaration of martiallaw.On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” onAmerican soil are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”Given that second amendment advocates are now being depicted as dangerous terrorists by the federalgovernment and local law enforcement, Garrow’s claim is sure to stoke controversy given thatAmericans are seeing their gun rights eviscerated while the federal government itself stockpiles billionsof bullets.Last week, Gloversville Mayor Dayton King warned that any federal gun confiscation program couldlead to a “Waco-style standoff” in rural areas of America. http://www.infowars.com/
