Ridiculous Government Wasted Money

The U.S. government has an incredible zest to create innovative ways and means to spend taxpayer dollars – your dollars. Today we will wade through the murky waters of the monumental wasteful machinations our political leaders devise for our supposed betterment. The number of ridiculous government wasted dollars examples are uncountable, but below are some doozies.
Bird Watching, Paid Administrative Leave, Paying The NFL
Your taxpayer dollars went to an inspirational cause – bird watching. The Department of Defense (DOD) received $283,500 to monitor the daily life of the Gnatcatcher. This Californian bird is on the endangered species list and they take on enemy fire from the Cowbird. The DOD staunchly observes the assaults and reports back to headquarters.
In a two-year period, $3.1 billion was allotted to Federal employees who were placed on administrative leave. When several employees of the Drug Enforcement Agency were exposed for soliciting prostitutes, they were suspended. Not only were they paid in their absence, they all received a scheduled pay increase.
The government has paid the NFL and other professional sports organizations $10 million to boost recruitment and honor Veterans. On the payroll were NASCAR, the NBA, NHL, MLS, MLB, and several colleges. So far, no professional athletes have given up their career to fight for their country. Need more ridiculous government wasted money examples? Certainly, there are plenty.

Welfare For The Rich, Exercising Monkeys
Welfare for the wealthy sounds uncommonly ridiculous, but yes, it is happening. Federal, state and local government agencies dolled out over $100 million to at least 48 corporations. GM nailed Americans for $1.7 billion. Boeing, Amazon, Prudential, and Coloradan casino owners were awarded over $200 million each.
Still not shocked? Well, how about $1 million to put monkeys on a NordicTrak treadmill. Then there is the program that spent $5 million on the ultimate tailgate parties. $1.2 million went to the a study of the effect of microgravity on sheep. $448 taxpayer dollars went to pay the rent for squatters.
Want To Vacation In Lebanon?
The Federal Government issued this warning to Americans, “Avoid all travel to Lebanon because of ongoing safety and security concerns.” Yet, the United States for International Development spent $2 million promoting American tourism in Lebanon.

$1.3 million was awarded to the University of Washington (UW) from the National Science Foundation. Their dream was to unveil the mystery that haunts us all; how exactly does a “Koozie” keep a can of beer cold. The discovery was spellbinding. UW professor Dale Durran revealed amazing findings, “Probably the most important thing a beer Koozie does is not simply insulate the can, but keep condensation from forming on the outside of the can.”
Hold your breath, he also issued a warning to the non-Koozie folks, “Do NOT just wipe off the drops (of condensation) off the can, that will only make your drink even warmer."
Sadly, there are hundreds if not thousands of more examples of ridiculous government wasted tax dollars.

Convicted Illegal Immigrants In America

According to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in 2015 they released over 36,000 convicted illegal immigrant criminals. Since 2010, at least 124 illegal felons have gone on to commit 138 murders.
The Center for Immigration (CIS) Studies nabbed this information from ICE. ICE had reported this to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but the names of these murderers will not be released at this time.
CIS director, Jessica M. Vaughn, said this, “The criminal aliens released by ICE in these years – who had already been convicted of thousands of crimes – are responsible for a significant crime spree in American communities, including 124 new homicides. Inexplicable, ICE is choosing to release some criminal aliens multiple times.”
In fact, 75% of illegal aliens that commit a crime are released. Many of them have committed dozens of crimes knowing that they probably will not be held in custody or deported. In 2014 alone, 30,558 illegal immigrants that had committed a staggering 92,347 crimes were set free.
The uproariously senseless Californian murder of Kathryne Steinle was all over the news for a day or two, but then it just faded away. An illegal that had been arrested seven times shot her down. A law that would have prevented these murders was voted down by the Democrats. To them, future voters are more important than Americans lives.

Just a month ago, a 60-year-old Ohio woman was slain by an illegal alien after an attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl. Juan Razo was also charged with kidnapping and burglary. He plea bargained to a life in prison ruling.
Last December, 40-year-old illegal alien Michael Rodriguez Garcia was convicted to four life sentences in an Alabama prison for the rape and sodomy of two children.
On October of 2015, 34-year-old Marco Hernandez Ramirez – an illegal alien from Guatemala – was sent to prison for 40 years after killing a couple along with their 5-year-old daughter in a car accident. Blood alcohol content was not released.

Last summer, an illegal alien that had overstayed his visa was convicted of murder in a drunk driving accident. This was the 4th DUI since 2000. He was in U.S. custody several times and then released.
In that same summer, Mauricio Hernandez was sentenced to 50 years for the rape and murder of a baby.
Back in May of 2015, a Mexican illegal alien, Bernabe Flores, was convicted of rape and sentence eight years.

This is just a few of the tens of thousands of vicious crimes committed on Americans by illegal aliens. They all could have been prevented if the law as it is written was followed. The CIA stated that ISIS plans to cross the Mexican border. They also know that approximately 10% of the Syrian refugees will be an ISIS supporter.

The Obama Administration and his Democrat troglodytes will never pass a law, or follow a law that may make illegals leave feel uncomfortable at the cost of American lives.

Curt Schilling Facebook Post Gets Him Fired

Former Boston Rex Sox pitcher and World Series champion Curt Schilling is under scrutiny for his take on the LGBT bathroom rights issue. ESPN is one of the many politically correct media outlets that have zero tolerance for anyone that disagrees with their beliefs.
ESPN fired the former fastball hurler for a Facebook post on the controversial issue. He was previously suspended by the totalitarian dictatorship at the helm of ESPN. The legendary Boston hero's suspension was for having the audacity to compare ISIS to the Nazi's. The difference between the two murderous entity's is negligible. 
Here is the Facebook post he was terminated over: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
Liberals boisterously tout that they accept of all walks of life equally, but that is not the case. You must first think as they do and behave as they do or expect a vitriolic attack. The goal is to punish all that do not agree with them.
This is the Disney-owned ESPN response to Curt's Facebook post, “ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”

The LBGT group, which did not exist just a few years ago, represent approximately 2-percent of the American citizenry. The 98-percent are expected to cater and conform to their wants and needs. All Americans should be treated fairly and equally, but that is not the playing field any longer. Everything is about the Right and the Left, us and them, but not right and wrong.
There is more hatred and bias from the left-wing Liberal Progressives than anywhere else on Earth. The mainstream media paints a colorful landscape for their message and displays their political pom-poms for their glorious team.
They expect small business's to build a third, or fourth, or maybe even a fifth bathroom for the LGBT folks. The answer to this quandary is simple; if you have one, you use the men's room. Vice versa if you do not – it's that simple.

If the “have one” men are allowed to enter the women's restroom because they feel like a female at that moment, every pervert that isn't part of the LBGT community will be flocking to the ladies laboratories nearest them and women will be at high risk of a sexual predator attack.
Enough is enough; gender is decided at birth. If someone wants to change their gender, that is perfectly fine with most Americans. Women should not be placed in a dangerous environment for the sake of political correctness. To do so would be an act of a war on women in its puritanical form.
"Missing parts" is an entirely different conversation, but no one will be checking at the door.

Green Energy Wastes Government Money

Democrats always politic on the basis of emotion and their quixotic GreenEnergy wastes government money and this is one of their favorite feel-good causes. Green energy was sought when the cries of global warming was the doom of us all. There is no way to prove, or disprove that global warming exists or that it is caused by humans. 
Scientists are paid to find evidence, so they find evidence. If they do not, their services would no longer be necessary. If there was incontrovertible proof, an evidentiary talking-point would have been constructed, which would silence all non-believers. 

What goes unmentioned is the fact that Global Warming has morphed into Climate Change and the media took no notice. The inconvenient truth is that the globe has not become warmer for the last 18-years. There was a slight warming trend for 20-years, but that ended in 1998. The left will claim that these two trends are proof positive that Climate Change exists. Thinking people call it weather.

The Obama administration has staunchly heralded Green Energy as the brightly lit path for a prosperous future in America. The consensus is that renewable energy and clean energy will not only protect our environment, but it will also save money - eventually.
The Institute for Energy Research reports that the Department of Energy has spent over $26 billion in 2009 on loan programs for Green Energy investments. This exorbitant number is double the Gross Domestic Product of Iceland. These programs created 2,308 permanent jobs at a taxpayer cost of $11.2 million per job created. Green energy wastes government money because they always fail.
This total cost-per-job has many failed Green Energy endeavors embedded in it. Most notable is the otiose Solydra venture that was awarded approximately $530 million from the government. Failing also was Fisker Automotive that received $529 million to build electric cars. They are both gone, and so is the money.
ENER1, A123 Systems, and Nevada Geothermal received a total of $465 million collectively and all three entities have filed for bankruptcy. There are dozens upon dozens of these wasteful government-backed companies that squandered their grant money and filed for Chapter 7. Theses are just a few examples that prove green energy wastes government money.
In 2011, Green Energy companies received a prodigal $24 billion in subsidies, $20.5 billion in Green Energy tax breaks, and $3.5 billion from the Department of Energy Spending Programs. Fossil fuel companies (oil, natural gas, and coal) benefited approximately $4 billion in tax breaks that same year.  
The axiomatic monetary advantage for Green Energy venues escapes scrutiny from the vast majority of media outlets. Big oil companies, however, are excoriated for being successful. If all tax breaks for oil companies were revoked, they would either absorb the loss or pass the costs on to the consumer. There is no wonder which path they would choose.
The mainstream media has President Obama's back insofar as they do notcover Green Energy company failures. Periodically, they will brush over it in the news or bury it on page 17 of the newspaper. Most Americans do not know about most of the wasted taxpayer dollars – nor do they care. Green energy wastes government money and there is no end in sight.

What Is A Value Added Tax

The Value Added Tax (VAT) is widely known in Europe and many democracy-based countries. The idea of implementing this tax in America has been discussed among our Washington politicians nowadays. So, what would a VAT look like in the United States?
Today, the U.S. citizenry is taxed once at the time of a consumer purchase. A VAT would tax every item and service at every point at which its value increases up to the final product. Imagine how many company-to-company sales there are leading up to the production of a car.
Take a power steering pump for example. The ingredients to make steel would be purchased and taxed. The pump's parts would be purchased and taxed. When the pump is sold to a distributor, it would be taxed. Then, it is sold to the car manufacturer. Finally, a tax is paid when the car is purchased.

Government taxes collected would increase exponentially for our money-starved governance to spend just as sagely as always. Costs for the consumer, however, would necessarily proliferate and the cost of everything would rise for everyone. America is still midst the longest recession in decades. Placing a VAT into law now is foolhardiness in its puritanical form.
Ultimately, the American consumer would be burdened with higher taxes. All of the taxes that were paid throughout the production of a product would be accounted for at the time of the sale. Unless, corporations decide to take the loss for the good of the country -- don't hold your breath.
It is argued by the left that this tax would boost the economy lines like a rocket ship. But, history shows us that higher taxes do not boost the economy. After WWII, the rich paid a 91% tax and corporations paid a 50% tax. Government had more money, but it didn't last long.
Back then, it was difficult to move a business out of the country. Today, it is vastly easier, and that is what companies would do – and it's already happening. Carrier, Hostess and Ford Motor Company are just a few that have fled the country because of high taxes -- imagine what a VAT would do.
Republicans oppose the tax insofar as revenues would be too plentiful for Democrats to ever consider spending cuts. Knowing that American compatriots have little tolerance for new taxes, government simply borrows foreign money to feed their monetary addiction.
It is quite flummoxing as to why the left hasn’t pursued a VAT already. If it were passed into law, Americans may not notice and they wouldn’t see it on any receipt or tax return. It seems that this would be a perfectly occult avenue to feed the government's lascivious appetite to generate and devour taxpayer money.

Hillary Clinton Gun Control

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has vowed to use the presidential power of executive order to bring her gun control measures to fruition. To be fair, some of her ideas make sense. Extensive background checks and private sales loopholes should be mulled over.
However, like most Liberals, she believes that machines – guns – are at fault for all shootings. When the guns were approached with this accusation, they had no comment. She also wants gun manufacturers and dealers to be held liable for gun violence.
This is the most uproariously ridiculous notion the left has ever conjured up – and there are plenty of them. Will they face jail time because a murderer killed someone? Will Ford Motors be held culpable for a crazed man using his car as a weapon?
There are more murders at the hands of a man swinging a hammer than there are murders by gunfire. Will Ace hardware be liable? Will the man that sold the hammer be charged with accessory to murder?

Fox New's legal annalist Judge Napolitano responded, “She wants to hold the gun manufacturers liable for the misdeeds of others. That violates something called 'due process,' a very fundamental principle in the Constitution.”
Here are the top three gun proposals she plans on dictating via executive order.
  • Prohibiting domestic abusers and stalkers from buying and possessing guns.
  • Closing the Charleston Loophole, where a federal background check worker didn't contact the correct law enforcement agency.
  • Repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prevents the manufacturers and dealers of firearms from being held liable for crimes committed with their weapons.
None of these ideas would have stopped any of the mass shootings that occurred during the Obama Administration's tenure. Upwards of 80% of these shootings occured where guns are banned – gun free zones.
After the deplorable mass killing of children in the Sandy Hook Elementary School, they decided to post armed guards at every school. Gun free zones are a desirous place for the cowards that kill innocent Americans.
Hillary, as well as Bernie Sanders, wants to disarm Americans. This, while they are both protected by guns every day. There is no end to the blatant hypocrisy of Hillary and her Progressive Liberal cohorts. There are more guns in America than there are citizens. How would they be recovered?  
A gun confiscation branch of government would need to be established to take on such a task. When the job is completed, the criminals with guns can be rest assured that the home they are about to break into has no gun owners as occupants.

Hillary Clinton's War On Women

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has long portrayed herself as a quixotic leader for the equal pay for women. However, it appears that she does not hold herself to the standard she vociferously touts while out on the stump.
While she was in the Senate from 2002 to 2008, her female staffers made 28% less when juxtaposed to her male staffers. This is hypocrisy in its puritanical form, but even more astounding is the fact that she had vastly more female staff employed than that of men.
According to the data available to the public under the Freedom of Information Act, the facts show the antithesis of fairness to women. The Free Beacon discovered that the average salary for Clinton's female staff members made $15,708.38 less per year compared to men.
The average median income for men under the Clinton tenure was $$56,499.93 as compared to $40,791.55 for women. Rest assured the mainstream media will not report on this blatant hypocrisy – they are all in for Hillary.

Bill Clinton, yes, just hearing his name reminds folks of all the Machiavellian shenanigans with him and women. He was a one-man war on women. He used his power the seduce and take advantage of women throughout his entire political career.
Hillary claims this, “Women tend to work more part-time jobs, leave the workforce for child rearing more often, and favor jobs with higher flexibility but lower pay.”
She is correct, and that applies to every woman in America, not just Washington D.C. employees. The false narrative of the war on women is just that – a fallacy.
On April 8, 2014, Hillary Tweeted, “20 years ago, women made 72 cents on the dollar to men. Today it's still just 77 cents. More work to do. #EqualPay #NoCeilings
It was just eight years ago when she paid her female staffers 72-cents on the dollar compared to men. This tweet was a splendiferous gift to Republicans and it will be a tool used against her whosoever the 2016 Conservative nominee is.

U.S. Pays $300,000 Per Day Removing Illegals

President Obama irrefutably spurns to protect Americans by allowing nearly anyone who chooses to cross the American/Mexican border to enter the country unfettered. Approximately half of the illegals crossing are of Mexican origin and the remainder are from over 190 other nations. Unknown Syrians refugees are welcomed with open arms. 
Border patrol has been ordered to stand down for the most part. However, some of them have said that they have stopped people from Iran, Syria, India, Somalia, Yemen, and a wide array of wayward countries.
The U.S. is deporting approximately 50% less illegal aliens than in 2008. It is stunning to learn just how much America coddles these law-breakers. Some of them have intentions of killing U.S. citizens and some want to poison the children with drugs.

The few that are deported are often flown back to their home countries in private jets. Some illegals are forced to fly in commercial airliners that seat over 250 people, but it is filled by just one deportee. They are gracefully returned to their home country instead of tossing them out at the point of entry.
The average cost to cordially remove these invaders is $300,000 per day, every day. Many are flown overseas on hired private jets and they enjoy the ride in the lap of luxury. Most will find their way back into the U.S. and that will not be held against them.

In 2015, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gobbled up $116 million returning illegal invaders to their homeland. At least 40% of people that had overstayed their visa were convicted criminals. Apparently, this is insignificant to the Obama Administration.
1,000 of that 40% were known be involved in organized crime or gang members. Insignificant. ICE paid for a 767-300 airliner to fly one man back to Nigeria. Insignificant. ICE hired Gulfstream IV executive jets for what are referred to as “high-risk” detainee's on at least 34 occasions.
The average cost to coddle these criminals and safely return them to their part of the planet is $12,213. Insignificant. This expenditure for each offender involves the cost of identifying the illegal – when possible – the arrest, the cost of detaining them, and the eventual exportation.
As the national debt encroaches $20 TRILLION, this wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars is insignificant not only to this illegal immigrant-loving Administration, but also republican congressman and senators. We The People will simply have to accept their esoteric way of business as usual.

Hypocrisy Of Hillary Clinton

Hillary campaigned on political campaign finance reform. She stated that she wants to spend $2.5 billion on her campaign.
Mrs. Clinton stated to political reporters, “I am all about new beginnings.… So here goes, no more secrecy, no more zone of privacy.” Four days later she told congress that she deleted 30,000 emails.

In 2007 she stated this about the Bush Administration, he has “Secret White House e-mail accounts... a stunning record of secrecy and corruption, of cronyism run amok.”

Hillary criticizes wealthy Americans, CEO's, and the fat cats on Wall Street. She makes an average of $80.00 per second for speeches.

She claimed to be “dead broke” when the Clinton's left the White House. Bill had already signed a $16 million book deal while still in office.

Former Secretary of State (SOS) Clinton proudly proclaimed her disdain for for-profit colleges. Bill Clinton is on the payroll as an Honorary Chancellor of Laureate Education Inc. - the largest for-profit college company in America.

On the stump, Hillary embraces illegal immigrants and open borders. Just a few months ago, she said, “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are...”

Hillary touts that she is anti-gun as part of her campaign. Some of her fundraisers and lobbyists, like Jeff Forbes, also lobby for the NRA.

She said, “Supporting Veterans is a sacred responsibility”. A 71-year-old Veteran, who was wearing a “Veterans for Peace” T-shirt, was brutally beaten and arrested for turning his back to her while she was giving a speech just feet away.

She continued to speak as this unfolded in front of her, she has never addressed the incident.
She authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 countries – all had contributed to her foundation.

The Clinton Foundation also accepts money from countries like Saudi Arabia - $10 million just prior to
her appointment as SOS. The Saudi's treat women and gays with unwavering brutality.
Under SOS Clinton's leadership, she approved $165 billion for commercial weapons sales to 20 
countries, whose government had contributed to her Clinton Foundation. 

Side note: Her foundation sends an abysmal 6% of its incoming donations to charities. The rest is spent
 on staff, the Clinton's travel, and "miscellaneous" spending.

Global Warming Failed Predictions

1985: “Beginning in a decade or two, scientists expect the warming of the atmosphere to melt the polar icecaps…
2007: U.N. Scientists say only eight years left to avoid worst effects.
2009: ABC News Envisioned Apocalyptic 2015 Triggered By Climate Change.
2009: Then Senator John Kerry said the Arctic would be ice-free by the summer of 2013.
2013: President Obama: Excessively high temperatures’ are ‘already’ harming public health nationwide.
2014: Inconvenient Truths: Atmospheric Natural Disasters Way Down, no Trend In Tornado/Cyclones Since 1950!
2008: ABC Prediction: NYC Under Water from Climate Change By June 2015 .
Top NASA experts predicted an ice-free Arctic for 2012, and it has happened – it never happened.
2006: “Due to global warming, the coming winters in the local regions will become milder.” Stefan Rahmstorf, Potsdam Institute of Climate Impact Research, University of Potsdam.
1970: Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” declared Denis Hayes, the chief organizer for Earth Day, in the Spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness.
Al Gore prediction for January 26, 2016: “believes humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan.”
2007: Al Gore, "The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff; 'It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now!" The ice caps are 76% larger today.
2007: Al Gore, “Hurricanes are increasing and getting stronger.” Hurricanes today are at a 50-year low.
Al Gore: 2007, “Snow and frost will disappear... more heat waves, no snow in the winter.”
There has been no Global Warming since 1998. This explains why they changed it to Climate Change, and no one sees Big Al any longer.

In closing, Al Gore raked in over $100 million flying around the world in a fossil-fuel guzzling private jet, and making speeches were his wares. Al's hockey stick has given the world the shaft.

Mississippi Passes Religious Freedom Bill

Governor Phil Bryant (MI-R) passed a controversial Religious Freedom Act. The left and LGBT community exploded into an uproarious outrage. Cries of discrimination have been vociferously touted before any incident has occurred.
This is an act that protects the religious beliefs of Christians that love their God and hate no one. The vitriolic hatred is coming from the left. The party of acceptance for all are hypocrites when folks don't fall in line with their way of life.
Government is forbidden to regulate or infringe on the religion of individuals. The left wants Christians to perform acts that conflict with their God's wishes. They feel they know what is right and wrong and if you don't conform, you will suffer their wrath.
It didn't take long for the George Soros paid rent-a-riot professional protesters to show up. They hoisted their provided signs and chanted catchy slogans. Some of them have no idea why they are there, nevertheless, they will be paid in full.
The goal is not the fight for LBGT rights, it is to strip the rights of Christians and embrace government control. This is sought through many venues and they pounce at every opportunity. To break down traditional American values is the coup de gras for liberal progressives.
The LBGT community and supporters feel that Christians need to stop being Christians. That, they deserve a grandiose parting of the sea and a paved path with rose petals shall be provided. That, this road is only for them to travel and dictate how you should behave and how you should think.
They believe that it takes a village to raise a child. That village should be governed by their values, or lack thereof. Christians; be careful what you think, do, and say – they are out to get you. To “fundamentally change” a nation, it must first be destroyed.

2016 Economy Worst Since Carter Administration

In the year 2009, student loan debt stood tall at $146 billion. Today that number has grown to a staggering $945 billion. President Obama and his democrat comrades have repeatedly proclaimed that something needs to be done about. To date, they have offered no plan.
When America's 44th president was sworn in, yearly food stamp benefit expenditures hit $55 billion. Last year that number was $70 billion. The number of Food Stamp dependents has grown exponentially from 26 million to 50 million in just seven years.
On inauguration day, the National Debt accumulated by America's first 43 presidents was $11 trillion. Today it is $19 trillion and will be an outlandish $20 trillion when the next president moves into to the White House.
At the end of the Bush Administration, the Federal Reserve began printing money to stop the economic bleeding. Barack Obama came to town and cranked up the printing to $85 billion each month, every month and it continues today. This money is used to prop up the “fat cats” on Wall Street that Mr. Obama hates so much.
The Affordable Care Act was supposed to lower health care costs to the average family by $2,500 per year. Conversely, the cost for premiums had risen by over $2,500 per by 2014. In 2015, health care cost rose at an average of 20% and it will rise another 20% in 2016.
5-million Americans are unemployed today. This equates to a 62.7% job participation rate – the lowest since the Carter Administration. The true unemployment rate is in the vicinity of 17%. However, approximately 30% of the country is not working.
The median income for the average American was $55,000 per year in 2009. That number has dropped precipitously over the last seven years and today it is an abysmal $50,000 per year. 75% of jobs lost in the recession were full time. 75% of all new hires have been part time jobs.
Home ownership was 67% in 2009 and it has dropped to 63% by the end of the first quarter in 2015. The second quarter of 2015 showed the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.
If this is “forward,” backward is the new hope and change.

Donald Trump Trumps The Establishment

The career republican politicians have dropped the gauntlet – get Trump out. The republican establishment elites cannot see the blatantly obvious; they aggrandize Donald Trump when they attack him. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz waded in the murky swamp of dirty politics and The Donald has gained as a result.
The party is an abysmal embarrassment and the Washington machine gave Mitt Romney the nod. Mitt went against his Mormon beliefs and vehemently attacked Mr. Trump in attempt to hurt his soaring momentum. He wouldn't attack Barack Obama in 2012, but now a fellow republican is on his scope.
Romney praised Trump publicly when he endorsed him in the 2012 presidential campaign. He went on to say that Trump “Understands the economy and creates jobs.” Today, Mitt said that Trump is not a good business man and would destroy the economy. Mitt is worth 1/40th of what Trump has compiled in the business world.
Until he decided to run for president, Mitt was a pro-choice moderate that created Romney-Care as governor in MA. He also embraces the Global Warming lexicon spewed by the far-left Progressive Liberals. Yet, today he claimed that Trump is not a conservative.
Mitt's ignominious comments on Trump was a pathetic display of misinformation. One of Romney's most cheered comments was, “He is very, very, not smart” - high intellectual discourse indeed. The esoteric rhetoric and invective fallacies Romney uttered was bewildering to say the least. Unknowingly, he elevates Trump and further disjoints the GOP.
The Democrats are watching the GOP destroy itself while sipping on the sweet nectar of the coup de gras they wish for. Another presidential election cycle, another example of the GOP's propensity to shoot themselves in the foot.
The Washington Praetorian guard has reared its ugly head from the tabernacle of business as usual. The bought and paid for politicians cast ad homonyms at the new kid in town out of fear that the political money chain will come to an end.
Donald cannot be controlled by big oil or Green Energy companies, nor can the perfunctory lobbyists of Wall Street influence him. Just as Greek mythology's Sisyphus, the GOP rolls the establishment stone up the hill of Washington's elite, only to watch it tumble back upon them down to its lowest point.
