What Was In Pandora’s Box?

While the title might sound like the name of an adult movie the question involves what is inside the box opened by Democrats when they started making the claim that Romney invested money overseas. The Democrats have been harping on this issue as if Romney has done something illegal, he did not. Couple this with the thoroughly debunked claim that Romney outsourced jobs and it is easy to see that the narrative is designed to lie to people in order to keep Obama in the White House.

Debbie Wuz-a-man Schultz of the DNC had this to say:

So we can see why he’s invested in Swiss bank accounts and accounts in the Cayman Islands. And you know, we also need to know why does — what is the allure of investments out of the country. When he headed up Bain Capital, he was a pioneer in outsourcing and shipped jobs overseas. Real Clear Politics

So here Little Debbie wants us to be upset with Romney because he had money in Swiss banks and other overseas areas. She probably should have looked inward first:

Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past. Weekly Standard

Wow, that is going to hurt.

But wait, there’s more. Looks like Nancy Pelosi had overseas investments as well. She made between 1 and 5 MILLION dollars off her investments.

According to Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement, the Democratic House Minority Leader received between $1 million and $5 million in partnership income from ”Matthews International Capital Management LLC,” a group that emphasizes that it has a “A Singular Focus on Investing in Asia.” A quick trip to the company website reveals a featured post extolling the virtues of outsourcing. Daily Caller

Wow, not only does Pelosi have her money in an overseas entity it is in a company that is involved in outsourcing…

Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett has a loan through an insurance company that does business in Bermuda.

Does any of this mean much? Not really because as far as we know none of these folks have done anything wrong. They get loans or make investments legally and as far as we know they pay the proper taxes.

BUT, and it is a big but, Romney is not going around accusing the Democrats involved of any wrongdoing. Romney and the Republicans are not putting out these kinds of claims to make it appear as if something fishy is going on.

Before the Democrats decided to engage in this kind of stupidity they should have checked their own circumstances.

The financial disclosures of all these people are publicly available. Perhaps someone should comb through them and start pointing out what kind of investments Democrats have.

Should people point out that Barack Obama made a lot of money from overseas sources through the sale of his books? Would it be fair to suggest that he did something illegal in this regard?

Should someone suggest that something was amiss because Obama received money from the Stockholm Sweden based Nobel Foundation?

Wuz-a-man Schultz further suggested that it would be nice if we had a candidate committed to America. One could make the claim that since she represents the DNC and said we she was lamenting about Obama.

I am sure she was referring to Romney and I would say that if his investments are proof to her and the Democrats that Romney is not committed to America then the foreign sources of income and investments that they have been involved in indicate that they are not committed to this country.

Whatever it takes to win is how Democrats work.

The best thing to do is to throw them out of office.

Obama must go in November and if the people of Florida are smart they will dump Little Debbie as well.

When Gas Was High Under Bush He Was A Big Oil Man

Gas prices went up under George Bush’s presidency and the left went nuts. They blamed it on Bush and Cheney because, as Nancy Pelosi attributed it, two oil men were in the White House. Yes, Pelosi and the rest of the brain dead liberals (but I repeat myself) blamed the high prices on Bush, Cheney and oil companies gouging consumers. The left initiated a few investigations into this so called gouging only to find out that it never took place.

As an aside, I made the point then and I make it again now, the only one gouging in all this is the government. State and federal government get many multiples of oil company profits in gasoline taxes. We pay them a lot of money and they do nothing to earn it. Martin O’Malley of Maryland is looking to raise gas taxes even higher to fuel (pun intended) his welfare state initiatives and big spending programs.

Bush has been out of office for more than three years but the left continues to blame him for everything. No matter the problem, to the left it is Bush’s fault.

Ironically, the left never gives him credit for anything he put in place that worked out well for them (like getting Bin Laden).

Gas prices are at an all time high for the month of March. The average is near $4.00 a gallon and the price has topped five (and is close to six) dollars in some places in the country.

Now the left, which was quick to blame Bush for the high prices under his tenure, is just as quick to tell us that presidents have little control over the cost of gasoline. It is amazing how quickly their tune changed when a Democrat suffers high prices.

As another aside, the high prices under Bush took place when Democrats controlled Congress.

The price people pay for gas is skyrocketing (something Obama and his regime want) and it is now an anchor around his neck. He keeps claiming that things are getting better and he saved the world from collapse but people on the ground, those whose children can’t jet off to a holiday in Mexico on taxpayer money, can see what things cost and how the cost is impacting their lives.

Obama falsely claims that drilling is up during his watch. The drilling is taking place on private lands as a result of what Bush did. Obama banned drilling in the Gulf, refused a pipeline, and has kept our oil rich lands off limits to oil drilling.

Obama’s policies have hampered our efforts to get more of our oil on the market.

He is doing it to force us into the green energies that he keeps wasting taxpayer money on.

Who will the left blame for the rising gasoline prices? It is not Bush’s fault and the left insists that presidents (at least Democrat presidents) can’t control gas prices so who will the left blame?

The left can set its sights on speculators but it loses credibility when one considers that the left discounted them and continued to blame Bush during his time in office.

Obama and his dim witted Democrats are playing politics at a time when the price of gas is hitting all time highs. They are desperately looking for scapegoats so they can keep Obama in office.

But the reality is that Obama is to blame. His policies have damaged the economy even further and he is rocketing us toward a Socialist state where government controls everything.

He is working us into a frenzy using the Cloward-Piven strategy.

It is time to work hard to dump this man before we end up living like Obama’s brother.

Pelosi Says What The Rest Think

Nancy Pelosi let slip her feelings about unions in the private sector and her slip reveals a person who wants total government control. It reveals a person who wants a government that knows no bounds and a government that completely controls out lives. We already know this about the liberal/progressive/Socialist bunch infesting government at all levels from the courts, to the Capitol to the White House. Now Pelosi has put into words how far she will go for complete government control.

Heritage finds a nice catch in this CNBC interview with Nancy Pelosi last week, as Maria Bartiromo queries Barack Obama’s favorite House Speaker on the role of government in business expansion. Should agencies like the NLRB have the authority to shut down private-sector plants simply for not being unionized? Pelosi barely waits for the question to conclude before blurting out her “yes” Conservative Byte

Pelosi thinks a government agency should be able to shut down a private business for not being unionized. This is the mindset of those who want total government control. If there are no unions we will shut you down until you get one. If you don’t want to purchase healthcare we will force you to under threat of a penalty.

Yes, they encroach even more into our lives each and every day and they do so because we do not stand up to them.

Someone remind Pelosi that she and the government have no control over this and that our Second Amendment provides us a means to fight tyranny no matter how it manifests.

Our Founders would be shooting by now.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you do not fight for your freedom then your own government will take it away.

Obama Supports This Movement

The Occupy crowd around the country is full of filthy people who are disrupting life for those who work and pay taxes to support this country. They have had a number of crimes including rape occur at their camps and there are outbreaks of communicable diseases including sexually transmitted diseases and drug resistant Tuberculosis.

We have already seen pictures of people who have defecated on police cars and we know these “people” are using public places to relieve themselves. Breitbart has posted a video of a protester who squats and defecates on the sidewalk.

This is the movement that Obama and the Democrats support.

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and a slew of other liberals (many of them wealthy and who have made money off Wall Street or through capitalism) have publicly expressed their support for these people.

The occupy protests have been going on for about two months and police around the country are starting to clear these people out.

Unfortunately, they are about two months too late.

Cave canem!

Pelosi Is Out Of Touch With Reality

Obamacare is an anchor around the necks of Americans and it will cost a fortune. Not only will it cost a fortune but not all people will be insured and government officials will be involved in our health. Our care will be based on what some bean counter decides and, contrary to Obama’s claim, we won’t be able to keep our doctors if we like them.

Nancy Pelosi, who once said we had to pass the bill to see what was in it (and we are finding more and more problems), is defending the 1800 or so waivers granted by the Obama administration. Yes, waivers have been granted so that some businesses do not have to participate in Obamacare. The health care solution, the panacea, is so great that companies have requested and been granted waivers from participating. The funny thing is that unions and other groups that pushed for this monstrosity to be rammed down our throats have applied for and received waivers. It is good enough for us but not for them.

Pelosi defended the waivers by claiming that they were granted to very small businesses and that the waivers would have a very small impact on our economy. If Obamacare is so great, why did they need waivers to begin with?

And if it is so great why did all the groups that supported it line up to apply for waivers before the ink was dry on the newly signed law.

And why is Pelosi defending the waivers when she and all her cohorts said it was the fix we needed?

And finally, why did McDonalds get a waiver when it is one of the largest businesses in America?

Surely that company does not qualify as very, very small and certainly it has a large impact on our economy.

This is election year history rewriting. It is time for Pelosi and her ilk to get out and tell you what you should believe because they say so.

Who will you believe, a known liar like Pelosi (and most politicians) or your own “lying” eyes?
