Obama: We will figure out how to make you beg for more government….

President Obama Orders Behavioral Experiments On American Public Obama signed an exec. order to conduct behavioral experiments on Americans to nudge them in the directions that gov’t wants!! Boy could this go very wrong. Remember Orwell!! “The initiative draws on research from U of Chicago economist Richard Thaler and Harvard law prof Cass Sunstein, Obama’s regulatory czar. The two behavioral scientists argued in their 2008 book “Nudge” that government policies can be designed in a way that “nudges” citizens towards certain behaviors and choices…While the Obama administration touts nudge policies, others are hesitant to get on board.“ I am very skeptical of a team promoting nudge policies,” Michael Thomas, an economist at Utah State University, told Fox News in 2013.“Ultimately, nudging…assumes a small group of people in government know better about choices than the individuals making them.”

Prosecutor Bill James helped nip Tampa’s ‘Murder Inc.’  Remembrance of Bill James who stopped one of the most powerful crime syndicates in America 40 years ago. “It’s been 40 years since the underworld in Tampa, then considered one of the most powerful in the nation, tried to replicate “Murder Inc.” — the nickname given the enforcement arm of the NY Mafia in the 1930s and 1940s. Murder Inc. was blamed for as many as 1,000 contract killings.  Tampa’s version never approached that body count, topping out at one slain police officer and two men injured — thanks, in part, to the work of attorney Bill James. Thirteen men associated with the hit squad were taken off the street through investigation and prosecution led by James, chief asst U.S. attorney in Tampa at the time and later, Hillsborough County state attorney. He passed away in 2008.”

HUD Finalizes New Central Planning Rules for Communities | Heartlander Magazine We must stop our local gov’t from being bribed to social engineer Pinellas County!! “People choose to live in neighborhoods based on a whole variety of issues,” Manning said. “To try to overcome that through social engineering from DC shows the exact kind of hubris that we became familiar with when watching places like the Soviet Union and its five-year plans.” ‘They Should Just Back Off’ Manning says people should be allowed to live where they wish to live, instead of engineering communities to achieve federally mandated socioeconomic mixtures.“ These are local decisions made for a variety of reasons, and to try to overlay the federal government on top of it is doomed to fail. “It’s not their role, and they should just back off. It’s bad for the people they want to help; it’s bad for local governments; and it’s bad for local communities.”

America’s Legal Order Begins to Fray “But something more fundamental than even public safety may be at stake. There are signs that the legal order itself is breaking down in urban areas. The lawful use of police power is being met by hostility and violence, …The irony is that the historic reduction of U.S. crime since the 1990s was predicated on police singling out African-Americans—for protection…cops focused on violent hot spots; since black Americans are disproportionately the victims of crime, just as blacks are disproportionately its perpetrators, effective policing was heaviest in minority neighborhoods. The cops were there because they believe that black lives matter…Police officials say that they long to hear America’s leaders change the tone of the national conversation before respect for the rule of law itself deteriorates further. They’re still waiting.”

Articles: The American Refugee Resettlement Scam “Now the administration wants to use the refugee resettlement program to import a flood of Syrian immigrants into the U.S. It will virtually guarantee an opening for ISIS and others to establish bases in the U.S. legally with taxpayer dollars… The flood of Syrian “refugees” into Europe has been called an invasion… 72% are men mostly of military age. Only 15% are children and 13% women. Many are paying thousands of dollars..to reach Europe. Furthermore, half are not Syrians but come from Iraq, and other countries throughout the Middle East…On Sunday, an ISIS terrorist was arrested in Germany posing as a refugee. German customs has also seized 10,000 passports being smuggled for possible use by terrorists in country. Finally Germany shut down the border, “for urgent security reasons.” All trains from Austria have been stopped.”

How the US and Its Allies Are Fighting ISIS First article seen in quite sometime on what the US and allies are doing in their fight against ISIS. “In Afghanistan, pilots say, they had a defensive mindset; the priority was to defend U.S. troops on the ground with close air support. In the war on Daesh over Iraq and Syria, however, they describe their mindset as offensive. In addition to close air support and bombing missions, they also fly air interdiction missions in which they patrol for targets of opportunity—essentially hunting for ISIS militants to kill.. Overall, Operation Inherent Resolve is killing about 1,000 ISIS fighters a month. The death toll roughly matches the number of new recruits ISIS is able to field each month, effectively capping its manpower strength at about 30,000 to 40,000 fighters. ”

The Pro-Islamic Policies Of The Obama Doctrine Must Read! “Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, Jr. (Ret.), the former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet…stated that Obama’s policies are “very simple, and any thinking American should be able to grasp it. It’s anti-American, anti-Western, pro-Islamic, pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood. In an interview with retired Lt Gen Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), given to Al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan, Flynn dismissed Al Jazeera’s supposition that the US administration “turned a blind eye” to the DIA’s analysis and affirmed his belief that the US government didn’t listen to his agency on purpose. Flynn claimed that he thought “it was a willful decision,” on behalf of the Obama administration to basically create the Islamic State under the auspices of supporting the “Syrian rebels” in their fight against Assad..”

‘Jiffy’ Health Clinics Save Patients Money and Time, Undermine Obamacare | Human Events “Even more problematic, the growing Medicaid population is having an increasingly more difficult time finding doctors who will take them on as patients, adding further to the number of people looking for alternative health care options. Nationally, only 45 percent of doctors across a range of specialties now accept Medicaid, a decline of roughly 10 percentage points from 2009.The combination of growing wait times for patients, a ballooning Medicaid population, and a shrinking number of doctors willing to accept Medicaid patients has created a perfect environment for economic growth for the retail health clinic industry. Now, more than ever, patients are looking for convenient and inexpensive ways to receive care, and the model utilized by in-and-out health facilities offers a seemingly perfect solution.”

Discouraging Marriage The decline in marriage across all racial groups “has profoundly negative consequences for adults, children, and society as a whole. Because a stable marriage is one of the best means of avoiding poverty, many children born and/or raised out of wedlock are economically disadvantaged. In addition, single parents tend to have less time, energy, and other resources for fostering their children’s development…There is one step that can be taken to make marriage more attractive to low- and moderate-income families that seems to be working in other countries with extensive social welfare benefits and high levels of cohabitation: reduce the marriage penalties embedded in our means-tested welfare programs.”

‘Stupid’ Footage Surfaces of Democratic Congressman That Will Have Members of the Military Fuming Grayson is a disgusting person! “The video, first obtained by Politico, takes place at a fundraising event in California, in which the Florida Democrat tells the small crowd: “When they started to give us the military briefings, the generals walk in with all that salad on their uniforms in front… You quickly realize that they literally don’t know what they’re talking about. The so-called intelligence community is the stupid community. ”Grayson continues lambasting members of the military by telling the crowd “they’re the worst ones of all…Grayson isn’t a stranger to outlandish statements. He’s likened conservatives to members of the Ku Klux Klan and once even referred to his own wife as a “gold digger.”

Editorial: Whacking middle-class health accounts “Health savings accounts are likely to trigger the Affordable Care Act’s tax on premium health insurance coverage. The “Cadillac tax, ”starting in 2018, was intended to discourage excessive coverage. It is a 40 percent excise tax on ins premiums above the gov limits,$10,200 for indiv and $27,500 for families. The law will count the money workers contribute to their savings account as part of the premium threshold. So a worker who contributes $2,000 a year and has a policy with $9,000 premium would be hit with the tax. Kaiser Foundation found more than a quarter of all employers offering the plan would face the tax and more than half by 2028.. and the tax applies to other benefits, such as supplemental insurance plans, health savings accounts and possibly even such health-care amenities as company clinics. This is madness.”

Corcoran has legislative reforms in mind when he leads Florida House Must Read! Go Corcoran!! “The special interests are the biggest cowards in this process,” Corcoran told the Times/Herald. “They split up the herd and go after the weak ones, and they’ll even go after the big ones if they think they can. “His goal, he says, is to dismantle the lobbyist-influenced hierarchy of legislative leadership by delegating and sharing power with members in a way that “gives all legislators equal footing,” empowers committee chairs to set the agenda, and tasks legislators with the responsibility of pushing their initiatives.” If you’re going to run as a Republican, be true to Republican ideals. Don’t lie to voters,” he said last week. “You ought to research your issues and vote for what is best for your community and your state regardless of the consequences.”

Jewish and African American Communities Should Join to Oust Debbie Wasserman Schultz Excellent article on the many solid reasons Debbie Wasserman Schultz should be voted out of office!! “Let’s start with the most recent Iran decision. She rode the fence as long as she could, until she finally threw the Jewish community under the bus. According to Debbie: “There’s nothing more important to me as a Jew than to ensure that Israel’s existence is there throughout our generations.” No, Debbie, what is clearly more important to you as a Jew is your political ambition. It is more important than what your constituents want, it is more important than being a Jew, it is more important than anything in the world. You will say, do, and be anything to get political power, and it is time to stop you. The way to do that is at the South Florida ballot box.”

We Can Still Stop the Iran Deal—Here’s How – POLITICO Magazine Ted Cruz to our rescue!!”First, both leaders should formally declare that Obama has not submitted the agreement to Congress as required. The president may not suspend any sanctions against Iran until he submits the entire agreement to Congress and gives Congress an opportunity to review it…Second, McConnell should schedule a vote on a resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that, if the agreement had been introduced as a treaty, it would not be ratified…Third it is reasonable to assume that Obama will simply ignore the law and declare that he is lifting sanctions anyway. On that assumption, we should make clear to the CEOs of banks holding frozen Iranian funds that…if they release billions in funds to Khamenei, they risk billions in civil (and possibly criminal) liability once Obama leaves office.”

Exclusive: 50 Spies Say ISIS Intelligence Was Cooked Altering intelligence reports on ISIS is a threat to our national security and should be criminal!! For political gain? “More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials…The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s IG to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence…The analysts have accused senior-level leaders, including the director of intelligence and his deputy in CENTCOM, of changing their analyses to be more in line with the Obama administration’s public contention that the fight against ISIS and al Qaeda is making progress. The analysts take a more pessimistic view about how military efforts to destroy the groups are going.
