If We, At Politisite, Wanted A Free And Constitutional America To Fail ... Today on the Rush Limbaugh radio program, Rush mentioned and played a few snippets of a video produced and posted by FreeMarketAmerica.org. The presentation gave light to the how and why America appears to be going backward and failing on the goals and opportunity that had once been hallmarks to a free and Constitutional America. Ryan Houck, the Executive Director of FreeMarketAmerica.org, a project of Americans for Limited Government, produced this opinion presentation which was inspired by Paul Harvey’s “If I were the Devil” published in 1964 and 1996. Paul Harvey was a cultural and news story commentator that became one of the first to reach millions of people with his presentations. He used the [...]
Today, President Obama repeated the Left-wing Mantra that the "United States has only two percent of the worlds Oil reserves but uses Twenty Percent". He repeated this statement for emphasis trying to negate that the United States has any control over oil prices. The problem is that He is repeating leftest propaganda and using misleading information. With most, DC Bubble communication techniques, there is some truth to his statement. It is true that at the current level or production, which he has control over, America uses over twenty percent of oil in production. It is also true that our current level of production with existing oil wells, that we are producing two percent of the current oil. It is further true that the current wells are providing less and less oil each [...]
When George Orwell wrote 1984: he was ahead of his time, but I wonder if he truly knew just how accurate he was. He just got the date wrong. In the past week both the U.S. House and Senate voted on H.R. 658, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act, which “orders the Federal Aviation Administration to develop regulations for the testing and licensing of commercial drones by 2015.” These drones will be placed over U.S. airspace around the country for surveillance. Of course, the neo-cons are justifying their betrayal of the American people by citing the threat of terrorism to spy on us 24 hours a day every time we walk outside anywhere in the country. They expect 30,000 of these to be in place within the next eight years. People wonder how nations turn into a police state, [...]

A majority of Americans now oppose giving President Obama a second term, reflecting the country's continued weak economic performance, according to the latest IBD/TIPP survey released Monday. By 51%-41%, respondents in October picked "someone new deserves a chance" over Obama "deserves to be re-elected." Among independents, it was 54%-36%. Back in September, the readings were 50%-44% and 53%-38%, respectively. Americans are frustrated over the continued sluggish economy, says Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, which conducted the poll. As Vice President Joe Biden recently admitted, after nearly three years in power, the Obama administration owns the economy. via 51% Don't Want Second Term For President Obama - Investors.com.

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT State Dining Room 1:52 P.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. On Friday, we learned that the United States received a downgrade by one of the credit rating agencies -- not so much because they doubt our ability to pay our debt if we make good decisions, but because after witnessing a month of wrangling over raising the debt ceiling, they doubted our political system’s ability to act. The markets, on the other hand, continue to believe our credit status is AAA. In fact, Warren Buffett, who knows a thing or two about good investments, said, “If there were a quadruple-A rating, I’d give the United States that.” I, and most of the world’s investors, agree. That doesn’t mean we don’t have a [...]
Mary Meeker has created quite a buzz with her cover story this week in Bloomberg Businessweek. It is based on her analysis of the U.S. as if it were a corporation. Her assessment? The bottom line on USA Inc.? Cash flow and net worth are negative, profits are rare, and off-balance-sheet liabilities are enormous. The "company" has underinvested in productive capital, education, and technology--the very tools needed to compete in the global marketplace. Lenders have been patient so far, but the sky-high rates on the sovereign debt of Greece, Ireland, and Portugal suggest what might lie ahead for USA Inc. shareholders and our children. By our rough estimate, USA Inc. has a net worth of negative $44 trillion. That comes to $143,000 per capita. Negative. You can find their slide deck [...]
US gross debt shot up $238 billion to reach 100 percent of gross domestic product after the government's debt ceiling was lifted, Treasury figures showed. On Tuesday, the Treasury had to add more than $200 billion of commitments immediately after President Barack Obama signed into law an increase in the debt ceiling. The liabilities had been temporarily taken off the federal government's balance sheet since May 16, when the Treasury reached the $14.29 trillion official cap. It then used extraordinary measures to remain under the legal limit while deeply polarized Republicans and Democrats battled over raising the debt ceiling and reining in the country's massive deficit. The new borrowing took total public debt to $14.58 trillion, over end-2010 GDP of $14.53 trillion, putting the [...]
Did America just give Formal Backing and $30 Billion to the Libyan Rebels who may have killed U.S. Troops in Iraq?
From a line in the movie, 'Charlie Wilsons War', "That ball keeps on bouncing". Today in Istanbul Turkey, Leaders, including U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton voted to releases some thirty billion dollars to Libyan rebels who have admitted ties to al-Qaeda and took part in the War in Iraq and Afghanistan. These rebels most likely are responsible for the deaths of United States and other troops. Yes, the ball keeps on bouncing and our leaders haven't understood the, "enemy of my enemy is my friend", is not a good working foreign policy and tends to come back to bite us in the A$$ later. ISTANBUL — The United States formally recognized the rebel leadership in Libya as the country’s legitimate government on Friday, allowing the rebel government access to $30 [...]
Thanks to M Catharine Evans at The American Thinker for using a link to Politisite in today's article Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple says she's on board with the anti-Israel flotilla reportedly heading to Gaza at the end of June. The American ship, Greek-owned and registered in Delaware named "The Audacity of Hope" plans to join other vessels in what Ms. Walker describes as the "freedom ride of this era." Shurat HaDin, an Israeli Legal Center, is trying to stop the Gaza flotilla. After sending a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder citing violations of Section 962 of Title 18 of U.S. Code, the Center filed a civil suit on June 16. The international initiative was launched last July by a group calling itself the U.S. Boat to Gaza which is backed by the Obamas' friend [...]
