This is a well constructed piece that details the truth that the path our nation is on is leading us to calamity. Quote: "The biggest reason why our federal government is such a mess today is because it has pushed God completely out of the picture. So instead of defending life, our nation has murdered nearly 60 million children since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. Instead of defending liberty, the control freaks at the federal level are suffocating us with hundreds of thousands of laws, rules and regulations, and if you throw in the state and local levels, the number of laws, rules and regulations governing us is in the millions. And instead of promoting the pursuit of happiness, all of us have to work several months each year just to pay the dozens of different taxes and fees that various levels of government impose on all of us. But we don’t actually have to have such a system. If we got rid of our debt-based financial system and went to a much smaller federal government, we could abolish the income tax, the IRS and the Federal Reserve. Government is not the solution to our problems. As Ronald Reagan once famously said, government is the problem. If we work together, we can dismantle the monstrous federal bureaucracy that the liberal elite have spent decades constructing, and we can restore the Republic that our founders risked everything to establish. It won’t be easy, but we can get there, and the first step is getting back to the principles and values that made America great in the first place." http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/just-like-our-founders-241-years-ago-we-need-to-unashamedly-declare-that-our-rights-come-to-us-from-god
This is recently generated information regarding the incompetence that characterized Obama's eight years in office. The focus is on gross mismanagement of tax payer dollars. Quote: "A government watchdog group has revealed that Federal agencies under former President Obama wasted over $135 billion of taxpayers’ money in 2015 due to improper spending (via The Washington Examiner). A report released by the Government Accountability Office last Tuesday details how 122 Federal programs wasted a small countries GDP in improper spending. The Government Accountability Office estimates even higher waste for 2016 – Obama’s last year in office – potentially totaling an additional $144 billion." https://www.teaparty.org/outrage-obamas-biggest-scandal-just-came-light-corruption-will-infuriate-247467/
This is the typical political solution to problems created by inept politicians. Raise taxes on the people to fix the mess they made. http://www.wealthauthority.com/articles/bankrupt-illinois-hikes-income-taxes-by-32/
This will turn your stomach. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/07/how_leftists_run_out_of_other_peoples_money.html This will, too. http://www.wnd.com/2017/07/supreme-help-sought-to-end-confiscation-nation/
This is simply unconscionable. Quote"A senior attorney at the Labor Department is accusing agency officials of writing and manipulating regulations to intentionally delay and deny congressionally mandated compensation to nuclear-weapons workers who suffered from sicknesses—and in some cases died—as a result of their work building the nation's Cold War nuclear arsenal. The attorney, Stephen Silbiger, says Labor Department leadership under former Labor Secretary Tom Perez ignored years of his complaints about the "open hostility" he said some officials exhibited toward claimants, many of whom are too poor and sick to fight the agency's denials and red tape in federal court." http://freebeacon.com/issues/labor-department-whistleblower-agency-officials-intentionally-denied-or-delayed-pay-outs-to-nuclear-workers-in-hopes-they-would-die/?
This item is for those who do not think Washington D.C. is a cesspool of corruption. It has long been and remains a corrupt place and according to this critic it is getting worse. Quote: "“As more and more money got introduced, the type of scandal changed, and they all became money scandals,” Bolling explained. “Literally hundreds of billions of dollars come to D.C. on an annual basis to find a home in lawmakers’ pockets for votes. Everyone became corrupt. Everyone became up for sale.” He said many lawmakers come to Washington with the best of intentions, but the system quickly swallows them up. “Some actually think they’re actually going to go there and make a difference and be different from the typical swamp creature that resides in D.C.,” Bolling said. “But when they get there, they realize how lucrative it is.” http://www.wnd.com/2017/07/drain-the-scandal-swamp-fox-news-eric-bolling-spills-secrets-on-d-c/
This item illustrates the serious consequences of government fiscal mismanagement at all levels over the past 100 years. Quote: "For purposes of my analysis, anyone who does not have enough money in the form of cash in hand to buy a Federal politician or buy the direct phone number to the Oval Office is “middle class.” There’s plenty of douche-bags running around with assets worth 8-figures but they don’t have enough spare change to buy their way in to the elitists’ card game. We are at the point where the last crumbs are being swept off the table. It looks like Illinois will be the first to fall but there will be several others that follow. Part of the motivation by the Fed/Government to hold up the stock market like it has been doing is to keep the big State pension funds propped up for proper looting – like a prize-fighter being held up under the shoulders after passing out in order to deliver more punches to the face. I suspect the time at which the system will be allowed to collapse is not too far off. The only question for me is whether or not the “Mad Max” scenario engulfs the country before the outbreak of World War 3…" https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/07/12/illinois-on-the-brink-the-whole-country-is-on-the-brink/
Government rules over us. Consider some of the lies we are told summarized in this piece. Quote: "As I have emphasized for a decade or two, the US is devolving into a third world workforce where the only employment available is in lowly paid domestic service jobs that cannot be offshored and that do not pay enough to provide an independent existence. This is why 50% of 25-year olds live at home with their parents and why there are more Americans aged 24-34 living with parents than living independently. This is not the economic profile of a “superpower” that the idiot neoconservatives claim the US to be. The American economy that offshoring corporations and financialization have created is incapable of supporting the enormous US debt burden. It is only a matter of time and circumstance. I doubt that the United States can continue in the ranks of a first world economy. Americans have sat there sucking their thumbs while their “leaders” destroyed them." https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/07/12/ever-more-official-lies-from-the-us-government/
The US Postal service violated the law by having their employees work for Hillary's election in 2016. Heads need to roll. Quote: "The United States Postal Service violated federal law by letting employees do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency, according to an Office of Special Counsel report obtained by Fox News. The OSC determined the USPS “engaged in systemic violations” of the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits certain political activities of federal employees. While employees are allowed to do some political work on leave, the report said the Postal Service showed a “bias” favoring the union’s 2016 campaign operation." http://www.libertyheadlines.com/watchdog-postal-service-broke-law-allowing-workers-boost-clinton/?
