The Democrats are continuing there multi-prong assault on capitalism, while sucking the life out of every working American. The Democrats believe that there elitist left-wing socialist policies can fix the world. In reality there just growing massive debt busting programs and pushing legislation that can never be payed for. All the election did was swap taxpayer money from country club Republicans to Big City elitist liberal billionaires. The average working guy is just getting stuck with huge new taxes and increases in bank fees, groceries and everything else. The lobbyist still get there companies tax breaks and tax payer financed subsidies and bailouts. Obamacare is just one example of big corporations receiving breaks while the rest of us get crappier service at twice the cost. True capitalism lets corrupt incompetent business fail and competition decreases prices and increases wages for good workers. The Democrats blather on about supporting the little guy but in reality there screwing them the worst. Wealth always trickles down, never once has wealth trickled up unless your a politician or one of his cronies.
Once again our dear leader Barack Hussein Obama is flapping his lips in self righteous indignation about Wall Street while at the same time benefiting from the very corruption he is blathering on about. You won’t see this on the Obama cheerleading
networks, remember Enron and the media attention that got. GW’s inflation adjusted take from Enron executives, employees and PAC’s was $151.722, obscene yes. But our dear leader raked in $1,007,370.85 (inflation adjusted) from Goldman-affiliated executives and employees. And that does not include the $415.595 take for Hillary and thousands more for Harry Reid and his gangsters party. Obama received more cash from Goldman-Sachs then all Republicans combined running for the White House, Senate & House. Not to mention the who’s who of Democratic party big whigs, Goldman-Sachs has employed. Gangsters like Rahm-Emanuel, Dick Gephardt, John Breaux, and Tony Podesta all have sucked up to Goldman-Sachs trough. Former Obama WH counsel Greg Craig just joined Goldmans-Sachs, even staff members of tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner where lobbyist for Goldman-Sachs. So you just need to remember, if Obamas lips are flapping he’s probably talking out of both sides of his Ass.

Media parrots White House talking points
The question of whether the media has a liberal bias is one of constant debate.
But take a look at the boilerplate paragraph used to describe the health care bill by national wire services: It will cost $940 billion over 10 years, will extend coverage to 32 million Americans, ban insurers from denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing conditions and cut deficits by an estimated $138 billion over a decade.
The wire stories neglect a balancing paragraph that says notes that those claims are very much in dispute, and that critics say it will cost more than $2.4 trillion, will require a broad array of new taxes, will increase the cost of insurance premiums, add a huge Medicaid burden to state budgets and place Medicare at risk. Readers are left to wonder why opponents would object to a bill that does so much good.
Likewise, the government takeover of the student loans industry is described as providing $36 billion in new revenue for Pell Grants. No mention of the private workers it puts out of jobs, or that critics say the revenue estimates are wildly overestimated.
The whole story isn’t being told if all the media does is parrot the White House’s talking points.
As the country of Mexico spins out of control,, once again the U.S. is being negatively affected. Decades of corruption and failing to address the drug cartels are now biting the country of Mexico in the ass. Now even more then ever we have to lock our borders down. The waring cartels are driving more criminal illegal aliens into our country, corrupt Mexican Police and Military personnal are crossing into the U.S. to protect drug smugglers, carry out murders and kidnappings. What don’t the politicians get, the citizens in the border states should be protected by there government. The murder of a rancher last week should be headline news ant you would expect action from Washington. There are foreign nationals terrorizing the border states and like past administrations the Obama White House is doing less then nothing. To this man’s family it doesn’t make any difference whether he was killed by Al-Qaeda or Mexican SHITHEADS he is dead. The U.S. citizens are being terrorized and let down by those whom claim to represent them.
Mexican ‘assassin teams’ may target U.S. law enforcement officers, DHS says
Law enforcement officers in west Texas are on guard following an alert issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warning of retaliatory killings for a recent crackdown on the Barrio Azteca gang.
David Cuthbertson, special agent in charge of the FBI’s El Paso field office, said the paramilitary-style gang has an “open policy” to kill its rivals and may turn its sights toward local law enforcement officers. “They are extremely cold-blooded and aggressive,” Cuthbertson said. “The killings are done really without thought and any kind of remorse.”
Citing uncorroborated information, Homeland Security issued an Officer Safety Alert on March 22, advising lawmen in the El Paso sector to vary their routes to and from work and to wear body armor while on duty. The alert also suggested that officers’ relatives pay closer attention to unusual activity in the area. “The Barrio Azteca gang may issue a ‘green light’ authorizing the attempted murder of [law enforcement officers] in the El Paso area,” the alert read. “Due to the threat, it is recommended that [law enforcement officers] take extra safety precautions.”
The Barrio Azteca gang, which formed in Texas prisons in the 1980s, is a brother organization to the Aztecas gang in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, the epicenter of Mexico’s violent drug war, Cuthbertson said. He said members of the gang’s “assassination teams” are thought to work for very small monthly fees.
One official from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has said Aztecas have been known to kill for as little as $100.
Since 2006, drug violence across Mexico has claimed nearly 18,000 lives.
Eduardo “Tablas” Ravelo, the reputed boss of Barrio Azteca members living in Juarez, remains on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, and the FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to his arrest. He and other Barrio Azteca gang members serve as hitmen for the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes drug trafficking organization – also known as the Juarez cartel – and are responsible for several killings, according to the FBI.
The DHS warning came just days after hundreds of Barrio Azteca gang members were interviewed by officials from the DEA and FBI following the murders of three people linked to the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez on March 13. More than 200 officers from at least 18 agencies participated in “Operation Knockdown,” which resulted in at least 26 felony arrests of alleged Azteca members.
The Barrio Aztecas are believed to be aligned with the Juarez cartel against the Sinaloa drug cartel for control of the billion-dollar drug-trafficking routes through the El Paso-Ciudad Juarez corridor. Since 2008, the Aztecas have been rivals of the Artistic Assassins, or “Double A’s,” who serve as contract killers for the Sinaloa cartel, Cuthbertson said. “They’re very organized,” he said. “They have a code they go by and certainly a communications network inside and outside of the prison system.”
Cuthbertson said Barrio Azteca gang members have been found in central Texas towns like Odessa and Midland, as well as in southern New Mexico.
Ricardo Valles de la Rosa, an Azteca sergeant, said last week in a purported confession that his gang was hunting for the vehicle of a Texas jail guard who was killed in one of two SUVs attacked in the March 13 shootings that killed El Paso jail officer Arthur Redelfs, his wife, Lesley Enriquez, who worked as an employee of the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, and Jorge Alberto Salcido, the husband of another consulate worker.
Valles de la Rosa, according to his statement, was instructed by Azteca brass to target Redelfs due to alleged harsh treatment of Azteca members in jail.
Valles de la Rosa was ordered last week to be held for trial on weapons charges for allegedly carrying a 9-mm pistol when he was arrested.
Ron Martin, president of the El Paso Municipal Police Officers’ Association, said that while he takes any threat to the law enforcement community seriously, he won’t change his habits. “It’s not the first time a gang has put a hit out on El Paso police officers,” Martin said. “Our guys are very highly trained, so they’re pretty well prepared for just about anything. For them to come out and attack a law enforcement officer in the United States would be detrimental to their business.”
Martin called the March 13 killings “unacceptable” and said he felt the killings were no less shocking because they occurred in Mexico, just across the border, rather than in El Paso or elsewhere in Texas. “It doesn’t matter if it actually happens across an imaginary dotted line, you’re killing people for money,” he said. “It’s unacceptable.”
Asked if he had changed his daily routines since the DHS alert, Martin said: “It’s not like we’re doing anything different because a bunch of murderers – I call ’em terrorists – are threatening us. Personally, I don’t do anything differently than I did before. We’re not changing the way we do our jobs because of them.”
