20 of Obama’s Greatest Errors!

Reagan inherited a terrible economy from Jimmy Carter.  Bush left a terrible economy for Obama, even thought Bush warned Congress multiple times to fix it, and the democrats in congress refused to heed the warnings!  So what, old news!  True, but let’s look at the terrible things Obama left for Trump to clear up (including an economy that still hasn’t reached the level prior to the 2008 Housing Bubble Crash)!

As President Obama’s term ends, what are the results of his eight years in the White House?

Originally published on New York Analysis of Policy and Government.by Frank Vernuccio

  1. Chinese, Russian, Iranian aggression increased
  • In response to President Obama’s policies of reducing American military spending, and pulling back on military deployments overseas (he unilaterally withdrew all U.S. tanks from Europe, a move he was later to force to partially rescind due to the Kremlin’s aggression) China, Russia, Iran, and terrorists became more militant and active. In the largest military effort on European soil since the end of World War 2, Moscow invaded the Ukraine.  There was no significant American response. Now Russia has adopted a more threatening posture towards other European nations.
  • Similarly, when China invaded the Philippine economic zone, the White House didn’t even lodge a diplomatic protest.

China now regularly engages in lawless activities.

  • After eliminating sanctions on Iran in return for its limited and unverifiable promise not to develop nuclear weapons for the next few years, Tehran has become far more belligerent at sea and in its development of missile technology.
  • Following the President’s premature withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq, ISIS was able to grow to enormous size.

 2. Nuclear proliferation spreading

Using similar logic and tactics that failed to rein in North Korea’s nuclear program, the results of the fatally flawed Iran nuclear agreement have resulted in a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. In Asia, America’s decreased position has made regional nations seriously consider the acquisition of nuclear weapons.

  1. Relations with allies deteriorated

Washington’s relations with the United Kingdom were intentionally downgraded almost immediately after Mr. Obama took office. Antimissile agreements with Poland were pulled back.  American support for Israel was reversed. The White House encouraged the ouster of a pro-western regime in Egypt in favor of Islamic extremists. The Anti-Islamic extremist government in Libya was overthrown with American assistance, for reasons that remain unclear. The Philippines were abandoned to their fate with the Chinese Navy.

  1. Loss of US nuclear supremacy

The New START Treaty gave Moscow, for the first time in history, a lead in nuclear weapons.  Mr. Obama failed to support urgently needed modernization of America’s nuclear deterrent.

  1. US armed forces demoralized and diminished

In addition to reducing the budget for the U.S. military, the outgoing president initiated personnel moves, including the forced retirement of key personnel both in command and enlisted positions, diminishing and demoralizing the armed forces.

  1. Afghanistan about to be lost

In a rejection of common-sense military strategy, Mr. Obama announced a withdrawal date from Afghanistan.  Rejecting long-standing U.S. policy, he opened up negotiations with the Taliban terrorists, who stand poised to retake control.

  1. Middle East descent into chaos

The President’s premature withdrawal of American forces from Iraq created a vacuum that allowed ISIS and other terrorists groups to gain power. The resulting chaos has allowed both Iran and Russia to become the major power brokers in the region.

  1. Integrity of key branches of government seriously compromised

Both the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service became involved in partisan political squabbles, essentially serving as enforcers for leftist causes. Significant control of the Environmental Protection Agency was given to nonelected, non-appointed partisans.

  1. Race relations at lowest point in half a century

Mr. Obama, as America’s first black president, had a unique opportunity to bring the nation together.  Instead, he fanned the flames of racial tension.

  1. Middle class devastated

The Pew Research Center  reveals that “The American middle class is losing ground in metropolitan areas across the country, affecting communities from Boston to Seattle and from Dallas to Milwaukee. From 2000 to 2014 the share of adults living in middle-income households fell in 203 of the 229 U.S. metropolitan areas examined in a new Pew Research Center analysis of government data. The decrease in the middle-class share was often substantial, measuring 6 percentage points or more in 53 metropolitan areas, compared with a 4-point drop nationally. The shrinking of the middle class at the national level, to the point where it may no longer be the economic majority in the U.S., was documented in an earlier analysis by the Pew Research Center. The changes at the metropolitan level, the subject of this in-depth look at the American middle class, demonstrate that the national trend is the result of widespread declines in localities all around the country.” The reason for the recent decline of the U.S. middle class and the general weakness in the U.S. economy is not the result of a cyclical downturn in business, or the bursting of a bubble.  It is not a reflection of the 2007—2009 recession.  It is the specific result of federal tax and spending practices which ignore the needs of the private sector, and redirects federal dollars away from essential needs such as economic growth, defense and infrastructure and towards entitlements (but NOT Social Security of Medicare.)

  1. Decent paying jobs slashed

The president’s policies served to discourage the private sector from hiring or retaining full time employees.  The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) which excluded employees working under 30 hours a week from employer coverage was a major factor.

  1. Health care system damaged

The financial structure of Obamacare never was realistic, a fact that even its architect, Jonathon Gruber, subsequently admitted. Now the nation must undo the damage done.

  1. Vast increase in national debt with nothing to show for it

The national debt has nearly doubled since the President took office. There is, unfortunately, almost nothing to show for all that spending.  America’s infrastructure needs remain unaddressed, the military is underfunded, poverty rates haven’t dropped, the middle class is struggling, and more businesses are closing than opening.

  1. Constitution damaged

Mr. Obama famously announced that he “Couldn’t wait for Congress to act,” even though he was legally required to work with them.  He violated provisions of the Constitution mandating Senate approval of key international moves, using the technique of labelling international deals as “agreements” instead of “treaties.”

  1. Contagious diseases reintroduced through lax border control

The President clearly remained disinterested in limiting illegal immigration.  One result of Lax controls on the border was the re-introduction of contagious diseases that had long ago been eradicated in the U.S. A Breitbart report  noted: “A February 2015 report of the Southern Medical Association cautioned that, since none of the 700,000 illegal entries have been screened for infectious diseases, “Illegal immigration may expose Americans to diseases that have been virtually eradicated but are highly contagious, as in the case of TB.” The association concluded that despite the efforts of the CDC, “There’s a growing health concern over illegal immigrants bringing infectious diseases into the United States.”

  1. Black poverty at epidemic levels

A Townhall and Gateway Pundit analysis reveals: What about poverty? In 2009, when Obama took office, the black poverty rate was 25.8 percent. As of 2014, according to Pew Research Center, the black poverty rate was 27.2 percent. What about income? CNNMoney says, “Minority households’ median income fell 9 percent between 2010 and 2013, compared to a drop of only 1 percent for whites.” The Financial Times wrote last October: “Since 2009, median non-white household income has dropped by almost a 10th to $33,000 a year, according to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s survey of consumer finances. As a whole, median incomes fell by 5 percent. But by the more telling measure of net wealth — assets minus liabilities — the numbers offer a more troubling story.” What about net worth and the black-white “wealth gap”? The Financial Times said: “The median non-white family today has a net worth of just $18,100 — almost a fifth lower than it was when Mr. Obama took office.”

  1. Internet oversight passed to nations that believe in censorship

For reasons that have yet to be made public, President Obama transferred control of a key portion of the internet out of American hands and into those of an international body comprised of many members who believe in censorship. He did so in clear defiance of Congress, which had prohibited the use of any funds being spent for the purpose.

  1. law enforcement discredited

In unprecedented fashion, President Obama has consistently criticized police officers every time a potentially racially-tinged event occurred. He has done so even before all the facts are clear. In a FOX interview, Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clark Jr., who is black, stated: “war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people, one of them coming out of the White House, and one coming out of the United States Department of Justice…”

  1. Nation more divided than at any time since the civil war

In July, the Washington Post noted “The sense that America is more divided than it used to be is backed by hard data. There’s been a sharp spike in the contempt that partisans express for their opponents, according to Pew Research Center polling. More than 4 in 10 Democrats and Republicans say the other party’s policies are so misguided that they pose a threat to the nation.” During his time in office, the President engaged in the rough and tumble “Chicago Way” politics, using government facilities for partisan purposes and ignoring the considerations and ideas of those he disagreed with.

  1. Manned space program in hibernation

President Obama prematurely ended the Space Shuttle program, then eliminated what had been scheduled to replace it as America’s manned space effort. He changed NASA’s budgetary focus from human exploration to endeavors mean.t to bolster his climate change beliefs.

What’s Killing White People?

What’s Killing White People?  The answer is easy, Liberalism!  First read the excerpt from the article in

The NY Times:

Health

Death Rates Rising for Middle-Aged White Americans, Study Finds

https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-2/js/ext.js

“That finding was reported Monday by two Princeton economists, Angus Deaton, who last month won the 2015 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, and Anne Case. Analyzing health and mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from other sources, they concluded that rising annual death rates among this group are being driven not by the big killers like heart disease and diabetes but by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse: alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.”
Why blame the Liberals?  Liberalism/Progressivism or what ever you wish to call it gave us promiscuous sex, drugs and lack of morality called Rock ‘N Roll! As a former idiotic liberal I assure you I rue the day so many of us embraced that philosophy and life-style.
Without the moral underpinnings divorce and dissolution of the family unit runs rampant.  In the “devil may care” environment of the Rock ‘N Roll environment we stopped caring for our bodies and decided it was easier to escape in a hazy drug cloud instead of building our families economic future.  Woman’s Lib turned men into wimps even if mistreating the wife was never part of his character!
Whether the drug of choice is alcohol, heroin or opioids it leads to the same dead end, suicide!  There are many forms of suicide such as the “Installment plan with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.”
Alcoholic liver disease takes longer, and you can play the game as if you are living, but you are just as dead as you would be shooting a gun into your head!
Another area of discouragement for the white person, as pointed out by this article, is economics.  Liberalism provides the environment for “crony capitalism.”  Only with a big, liberal government can the lobbyists of the major companies convince the politician to screw the little guy so he can make more money.  The cry of the liberal democrat is “Take the money out of politics!”  We can question “Why?”  Is it so the liberal politician can have more money for graft?
These problems are fixable!  This article isn’t intended to lay out all of the solutions, just heed it as a wake-up call!  While some of you might call the solutions “Polly-anna-ish” or too spiritual, they work.  We hope to lay out some of these ideas in a new blog, with high lights mentioned here in Amateur vs Competent.  We’ll keep you informed.

DO NOT HOLD YOUR NOSE!

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
– Helen Keller

Picture it…

It’s the middle of the summer and you’re standing on the
high-diving board at your community pool. Everyone is looking up at
you. You’ve never done this before and you’re scared to death. What
are you going to do?

Are you very safely and cautiously going to tiptoe to the end of
the board, hold your nose, and jump in feet first? Or, with
everyone watching you, are you going to go for that big,
spectacular swan dive and risk an embarrassing, painful belly flop?

You know the answer: DO NOT HOLD YOUR NOSE! Go for that spectacular
swan dive.

Here’s the ultimate question that will impact every aspect of your
life: Are you going to hold back or are you going to go all out?
Ever notice how all the movie heroes and heroines go all out? If
you want to be the hero or heroine of your own life — go all out.

When you keep holding your nose and jumping in feet first, you’re
training yourself to play it safe and you’ll end up living a life
of mediocrity. No one shocks the world by holding back and playing
it safe. Do you think anyone ever got into the history books by
playing it safe and holding back? Of course not! So if you want
your life to be a daring adventure — go all out!

It’s much better to go all out and fail spectacularly than
cautiously hold back and play it safe. At the end of your life are
you going to say to yourself, “I’m glad I did” or “I wish I had”?
If you don’t attempt to swan dive off that high-diving board at
least once, you’re going to have regrets.

THE POWER OF SEEDS HELP YOU BE FIT AND TRIM!

Youthful Vitality Starts With Seeds!

Scientists have known that the vital core of nutrition is found in the seed.  Until now, there was no practical process to extract the power of the seed! In the past few years science has come up with that extraction process-and it is now patented!  This is leading to a dramatic, and massive paradigm shift in nutrition.

I have been experimenting with this new product for nearly two months now, and my aging body has been helped beyond my wildest dreams!  This is my 70th year on good old mother earth.  Over the years I’ve been blown up in Vietnam, been involved in two major auto accidents, was punched and pummeled playing football, and subjected to the physical trauma of Marine Corps boot camp.  Oh yes, don’t forget the occasional fight, the karate sparing at Golden West Karate School and the few tournaments I participated in when I was younger.  Yes! It was a fun-filled life! Yes! It has been an exciting ride! However, the aches and pains it left me with made me wonder if the few years I have left on this Earth will be worth the extreme pain I had to endure every day?

The break I was looking for finally arrived with a phone call from my long-time friend Jeremy.  “look, you don’t have to live with those aches and pains!” he claimed. He went on to tell me how he now “feels 20 years younger,” and is living “pain free.”  Well, to make a long story short, he convinced me to eat the power of seeds, as he has been doing!  My results are amazing!

The first thing I noticed was the arthritic finger did not hurt as much!  Then my shoulder aches seemed to disappear.  My worst problems have been my back and Knee pain, and while they continue to linger, they linger at a much less intense level of pain!  All of that in only my first two months.  I sleep better! I have more energy and vigor in my daily tasks!

I don’t know what your experience will be if you use this product, but it is worth giving it a few months trial to see if you can have similar results.  Here are the details on what you receive by ingesting just 2 oz of Soul each day: It equals 8-10 servings of fruit and vegetables (the nutritional equivalent of 8 pounds without the calories); it is an amazing 281 times stronger than aspirin, with no side effects; in the three years people have been using Soul, it has addressed 27 major health issues!

At least, invest a few minutes of your time to go to the link and see if you think it can help you with pain relief and in slowing down the aging process!  That link is   http://www.myrainlife.com/lili4al
