ALERT: Obama Has Shocking Declaration About YOUR Bank Account

dApril 16, 2015

Mad World News:

The Obama administration may no longer have to simply just impose high taxes on everything you do to get your cash for the government to frivolously spend. There is sincere interest in following the lead of other countries by claiming your bank account is in fact not yours, but the government’s. If you want all your savings, you can’t keep it all, if King Obama gets his way, allowing him to seize what he believes is rightfully his.

According to Western Journalism, the money you once thought was guarded and protected by a bank, safely behind vault doors, is no longer safeguarded now that the United States regards your bank account as an asset that belongs to the bank, which means essentially the government can come debiting at will, to pay bank debts and obligations, through heavy taxation.

The seemingly unconstitutional idea comes after being inspired by the “bail in” plan that Cyprus, Greece employed, which locked out citizens from their own hard-earned cash without notice in March 2013 to save a bank from complete collapse. President Obama quickly embraced the idea, especially after Australia jumped on the bandwagon, when he caught wind of it from economic leaders at the G-20 summit last November in Brisbane, Australia.

What Americans can potentially experience is not only being taxed on your earned income and taxed again when you spend and invest it, but also when you save it.  You will pay the bank a fee and the government a tax, just for the honor of having a high-risk bank account that pays you nothing after everything is said and done. This is after you have already been robbed through inflation, only to get a return in interest that is under the amount you lost, and had no control over, Swiss America reported.

Although the novel idea will be sold to Americans as a tax on banks to protect them from collapse and prevent another financial crisis in the future, the actual cost will be passed on to consumers through higher fees or lower interest paid on their accounts.

What it boils down to is that spendaholic politicians will loot whatever pools of public or private money they can through legal loopholes our government creates. Don’t let them have it, invest in gold.

You will notice that no one in our government is very interested in opposing them, even though the UN keeps condemning their violence, torture and murder of innocents: a complete and unadulterated joke.

Of course “The boy who would be king has vowed to put U.S. troops on the ground in Pakistan if terrorists go after Pakistani nukes.  I’m sure he must have used the words “Enemy combatants, as Islam and Islamic terrorist are still not recognized by him and the laughable goons in his administration.

Obama has spent his entire career “Leading” from behind and would have a clue about the nature of the conflicts if he were carpet bombed with them.

ISIS is expanding into Pakistan. It now has its marauding throat slashing troops in Africa, Syria, Iraq and God knows where else.

You will also notice that the Republicans are snorting and pawing the ground over Iran, with its Shia sect, which does not call for murdering Christians.

On the other hand, we are bosom pals with Saudi Arabia, which aids and abets ISIS and the Taliban, as you can read in reputable news outlets, like here,  and here

So why is the US so lenient with the Saudis, who adhere to the Sunni Wahhabist sect, the most violent sect by far in the ME, while baring its fangs against Iran, who are Shia, a sect that does not call for death to Christians (Iran has 600 Christian churches and allows Bibles in its territory, while the Saudis have zero churches or Bibles)?

That question has a disarmingly easy answer, and you can read about it here.

Read the story of ISIS in Pakistan is at the next link, which shows that, while everyone is in hysterics over the possibility of the less violent Iran possibly getting nukes, the Pakistanis, which already HAVE nukes, may eventually fall to ISIS, which is crazy enough to blow up the world. Have you noticed that US foreign policy is insane and possibly suicidal?

Other reports indicating the Saudis aid ISIS: The Saudis are creating a monster within the Islamic State.

Who the hell is Obama and what camel did he ride into Washington?

Has Obama ever told the truth about anything? 

Think about it, how much time does he “Legally” have in office compared with theobama-2008 latest estimates of Iran’s breakout point?

A fool and an idiot with a Marxist plan to destroy America are not stellar qualification for holding the highest office in the land in the greatest country in the world.



I’ve not read this one but just ordered it. “WHAT IF THE ISLAMIC STATE OBTAINS WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION?”

He is a prolific writer, I’ve read nine of his books, which tend to predict what will happen when the words, Muslim Terrorists are used in a sentence.

On April 2nd, President Obama announced “a historic understanding with Iran” which would “prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”

On April 5th, the President told Tom Friedman of the New York Times, “I’ve been very clear that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch.”

Yet in the days that followed, the President admitted that Iran’s leaders could race to The Bomb with essentially no “break out” time and with very little way the world could stop them once the deal concluded in 13 to 15 years.

Specifically, the President noted that the deal would be “purchasing” a one year “break out” period during the life of the deal, meaning it would take at least a year for Iran to enrich enough uranium to military grade and build an operational nuclear weapon from the time it made the decision to do so, if it wasn’t already cheating. The President says this would be an increase from the current two to three month “break out” time that U.S. intelligence officials says Iran currently has.

This is no small matter.

Mr. Obama will be out office in 20 months. Preventing a nuclear weapon on his “watch” is not enough. Future American presidents, Members of Congress, the American people, the Jewish and Arab people of Israel, the Palestinians, and everyone else in the Middle East and the world will have to live with the consequences of this deal. What if Iran cheats and builds nuclear weapons in secret during the period of the deal? Or, what if they wait and build nuclear weapons openly in 13 to 15 years when they are free to do so? That’s not so far away.

What’s more, how can we prevent Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other countries in the region from pursuing their own arsenal of nuclear weapons? The Saudis have already signaled they are talking to the Pakistanis about buying nukes already built. A nuclear arms race is about to begin.

Meanwhile, Iran’s leaders immediately began accusing the White House of“lying” about the agreement. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif toldreporters that the U.S. assertion that sanctions would be phased out over time was a lie and that the U.S. had proposed immediate termination of all economic sanctions. Zarif also bragged that “none of those measures” that Iran had tentatively agreed to “include closing any of our facilities,” and added, “We will continue enriching; we will continue research and development.”

Harry Reid is a lying p.o.s. of what would be considered epic proportions if here were not surrounded by others in his party, Hillary, Obama, Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi, and the entire Congressional Black Caucus. 

It now appears Harry’s brother Larry an alcoholic showed up to an AA meeting bruised and bloody larry-reid-313x370and was the one who cleaned Harry’s clock; bringing new meaning to “Brotherly love.”

In keeping with our new interest in teaching you basic French, Loser Larry didn’t “Coup la merde hors de lui” because Harry is so full of merde neither would likely be alive long enough for Larry to proclaim, “Mission accomplished.”

harry-reid-bruises-afp-640x480-1Dingy Harry


Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is changing the story about how he sustained those gruesome New Year’s Day injuries that have left him blind in one eye.

Previously, Reid claimed that an exercise band he was using “broke.”

“I was doing exercises that I’ve been doing for many years with those large rubber bands and one of them broke and spun me around and I crashed into these cabinets and injured my eye,” (emphasis added) Reidsaid at a press conference on January 22.

But now, in an interview conducted by Fusion (a joint venture between ABC and Univision), excerpts of which have been released today, Reid tellsUnivision anchor Jorge Ramos that the exercise band “slipped,” rather than “broke.”“[T]he [elastic band] strap had no handle on it, slipped, spun me around, uh, about, oh I guess four feet (Reid points with his right hand to the wall of the interview room) and so I smashed my face into a cabinet,” Reid tells Ramos.

Reid’s latest version of the incident, as told to Ramos, differs from previous versions advanced by his team in another very significant way.

“Sources familiar with the incident said Reid was exercising in his bathroom, with the exercise band attached to the shower door,” Politicoreported on January 22. (emphasis added)

As Breitbart News reported previously, that version of the story, almost certainly told to Politico by Reid’s staffers with his approval, is not credible.

Now, however, Reid tells Ramos a different story. The exercise band was not attached to the shower door in his bathroom, Reid says, but was instead attached to “a big metal hook that came out from the wall” in an unspecified room in his new Nevada home.

Desert Musings:

OK…I think I’ve heard everything now. Hillary has her goony patrol out trying to carve the way for her announcement in about 10 days. She’s trying to make this all about anyone against her is sexist…much like Obama tried to make it that anyone against him was racist. I think I’m starting to get the Democratic picture.

And now, it comes from Hillary’s office that we should NOT in any circumstance call her by her FIRST name! That’s an affront to womanhood or some such nonsense. Maybe she wants us to bow and curtsy and call her “Queenie”…I don’t know. But frankly, I don’t follow orders from arm-pit-hairy liberal women who stink to high heaven and think they’re better than the rest of the world.

And it’s reaching a fever pitch. How about if I just call Hillary “bitch”? That’d work in my mind. It’s descriptive, it’s accurate, it comes in handy when she’s throwing a lamp at you. Yeah…that works.

Unfortunately, the feministas of the country want to believe that Hillary (no last name) is going to be granted the title of Queen for Life. I really don’t see that happening. She’s already hired a staff of people to get “positive news about her out in the press”. That’s to try and blunt the myriad of scandals that she’s already waded through, and the uber-myriad of scandals that she knows are out there that we don’t know about…and the even larger myriad od scandals that she hasn’t yet committed, but are coming.

I’m not sure how such a polarizing figure can become president. At least in 2008, Obama held the country in a star-like swoon. At least until he was inaugurated. Hillary doesn’t have any of that swoon. You either love her or you hate her. She doesn’t have anyone in the middle (which by the way, is EXACTLY what they look for when radio and TV stations are looking to hire talk show hosts…think Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly).

I laugh at people like Kathy Sullivan, a wannabe politician and “activist” (never really understood what an activist was), from New Hampshire who makes her living as an attorney. Correction. A very liberal, male bashing attorney. She’s like that law prof from University of Michigan that thought all sex was rape. You get the picture…right?

Look, I don’t care who Hillary hires, and I don’t give a llama’s ass what they say because it’s only blather. Bring it on. I think this time, the GOP is ready, and at 67, we can finally put Hillary out to pasture. Ridden hard….put away wet.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

PRESIDENT George W. Bush wanted to become the education president.

When Islamic terrorists struck on 9-11 crashing their planes into the Twin Towers of the Trade Center, The Pentagon, and a fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania which was forced into the ground on the command of a passenger, Todd Beamer, who understood what was happening and said, “Let’s Roll”;    

President George W. Bush became a  great war-time president.    

Any doubt, read his book “Decision Points,” where he candidly admits to and takes responsibility for screw ups as the campaigns against Afghanistan and Iraq began. 

Have you seen any photos like these in the last  6  years ?  Of course not, the current occupant of the Office was into photo-ops particularly when they featured him saluting the flag-draped casket of a hero.

Do you miss him yet?


Attitude tells a lot about a person.
If a hug is needed, don’t be shy!

No one appreciates a firm handshake more than a soldier.

If they prefer not to shake hands…


then a chest bump will do.


Just make sure you do a duck face afterward so they can laugh at you.

Comment by Jim Campbell

All members of C.A.I.R. who are not United States Citizens must be thrown out of  our country.  Their goal is the destruction of the United States Constitution.

C.A.I.R. (Council on American-Islamic Relations), among other things, is the propaganda arm for the Muslim Brotherhood.


C.A.I.R. was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation Trials.

Why unindicted?  Because a left leaning judge through out the undercover work of Paul Sperry and David Gaubatz covered in their book, “The Muslim Mafia.”

What was Sperry to do to please the judge, ask the the Terrorists at C.A.I.R. for the materials he had boosted while posing as one on them?


Heavy pressure is being exerted on the University of South Dakota (USD) to cancel a screening of Clarion Project’s award-winning interfaith film Honor Diaries. Pressure has come from the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as well as faculty members.

We have prepared two emails that you can send in less than a minute! Click here

One email will go to the brave professors who are so far refusing to be bullied by CAIR.

The second will be sent to the heads of the university demanding their support for the screening to take place. Take action NOW.

One screening has already been cancelled in mysterious circumstances but another is scheduled for April 10. It will be shown as part of USD’s annual women and gender conference.

CAIR was designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates. It was also listed by the US government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in American History.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper has called the film “Islamophobic,” attempting to label Clarion Project “anti-Muslim bigots.”

“We’re talking the worst form of anti-Muslim bigotry couched in terms of a legitimate issue,” he said.

Although he stated that one could talk about these issues, he posited thatHonor Diaries was not the appropriate vehicle, despite the fact that the film was made in part by Muslims and in partnership with a coalition of women’s rights groups.

“You don’t have to help promote the agenda of Islam haters,” he said. “That’s what you do when you promote this film.”

Migdela Sternadori, the women and gender studies coordinator is refusing to cancel the film despite the pressure.

“It’s just the wrong thing to do to censor a movie,” she said.

Cindy Struckman-Johnson, a professor of psychology and one of the original founders of the women and gender conference which started in the mid-1980s said she had never experienced such pressure to cancel any event at the conference in the past.

“I’m just absolutely stunned,” Struckman-Johnson said. “I just couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that a chair of a committee would be literally bullied. They kept saying, ‘It’s not censorship,’ and we kept saying, ‘Yes it is.’”

According to the local newspaper Argus Leader, a complaint against theHonor Diaries screening was initially lodged by a professor in the health department, Musheera Anis Abdellatif who alleged that the film violates USD’s policy of “inclusive excellence.”

A student group called the Association for Advancement of Women’s Rights originally sponsored the screening but later pulled its support after being pressured.

Here Are 8 Good Reasons We Should Abolish The IRS

(Screenshot Credit, Rare)

(Screenshot Credit, Rare)

April 7, 2015

Rare: by Merrill Matthews

Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen recently told The Hill that Congress can’t abolish the IRS.

But looking at the long list of IRS abuses, something needs to be done. Consider some of the revelations that have emerged just over the past few years.

Many IRS employees haven’t paid their taxes.

Even as the IRS demands you pay your taxes, the Washington Post reported a year ago:

The [Inspector General] report said more than 1,100 employees who failed to pay their taxes received discretionary awards of more than $1 million in cash bonuses and more than 10,000 hours in extra paid vacation.

At least five employees received performance awards after being disciplined for intentionally under-reporting their tax liabilities for multiples years, paying taxes late and under-reporting income.

So IRS employees can cheat on their taxes and be financially rewarded for it. What rank hypocrisy! Question: If I fail to pay my taxes will the IRS give me a bonus—or jail time?

They wasted money making Star Trek videos.

Remember when we found out two years ago that IRS employees had spent at least $60,000 making Star Trek and Gilligan’s Island “training videos”?

Those videos hinted at the problem of the agency’s willingness to have a good time on the taxpayers’ dime. Another IG report found, “In all, the agency spent nearly $50 million on employee conferences from 2010 through 2012.”

They’re stealing from taxpayers.

At least the misspending mentioned above was lawful, if inappropriate. But the New York Post’s headline regarding a 2013 IG report said it all: “IRS employees used company credit cards to buy close to $500,000 in wine, internet porn, diet pills and more.”

To be sure, the IG found the vast majority of credit card uses were appropriate. But many weren’t. And I’ll bet none of them were severely reprimanded.

They rehire questionable employees.

But at least if these problematic IRS employees leave, or get fired, they’re gone for good, right? Um…from Forbes:

The Inspector General identified hundreds of rehires despite prior substantiated conduct or performance issues. Some were serious. They ranged from unpaid taxes, unauthorized access to taxpayer information, leave abuse, falsification of official forms, unacceptable performance, misuse of IRS property, and off-duty misconduct.

Agents often abuse the public.

Congress passed legislation in 1998 that prohibited IRS supervisors from using quotas such as property seizures as a way of evaluating agent performance. So how’s that working out?

But the TIGTA [Inspector General] report said some IRS supervisors still use such records when evaluating their workers, while others have used the amount of money or property seizures their employees collected as an alternative means of establishing quotas.

They’re unionized liberals.

NewsMax points out that 96 percent of IRS employees’ PAC contributions go to Democrats:

TEPAC [Treasury Dept. union’s PAC, which includes IRS], which receives voluntary contributions from IRS employees who are represented by the National Treasury Employees Union, gave a total of $583,912 to federal candidates, only 4 percent of which went to Republicans, according to a syndicated column written by Jeff Bergner, a former federal official.

And they are doing union work on the taxpayers’ dollar.

The NewsMax article continues:

Meanwhile, there are 200 union representatives employed by the IRS who are paid salaries by the taxpayer, not through union dues. Some earn in excess of $100,000 per year to exclusively focus on union work, according to Bergner.

In total, the cost to taxpayers for IRS union work in 2013 was $23.5 million, and added up to 573,319 man hours.

So they use your tax dollars to pay themselves to work to elect Democrats who will give them more of your tax dollars.

Some employees target conservatives.

So maybe it’s clearer now why partisans like former IRS manager Lois Lerner harassed, slow-walked, and ignored conservative-leaning organizations’ tax-exempt applications. Oh, and the Justice Department just announced it won’t be prosecuting her.

The IRS has some 87,000 employees, and many if not most are dedicated civil servants who do their best to serve the public. While none of these eight transgressions—though there are many more—individually would be enough to scrap the IRS, it’s clear the agency is beset with problems that won’t be solved quickly or easily—especially by smirking, condescending, and dishonest commissioners, and we’ve see a bunch of that lately.

So even if the government needs some agency to handle the task of collecting taxes, it doesn’t have to be the current IRS. It’s time to wipe the slate clean and start over with a new, much smaller agency with limited duties and an equally limited budget.

In other words, Congress should take Koskinen up on his challenge and abolish the IRS.

Nearly a year ago, conservative firebrand Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) went to Shield Shooting Sports Complex to shoot an M249 light machine gun (LMG) like a boss.

Kudos to the editor of this video for the comical slow motion footage in between the real-time action.

Coach Was Fired For This Facebook Post About Obama

(Screenshot Credit, Mad World News)

(Screenshot Credit, Mad World News)

April 6, 2015

Mad World News:

It’s becoming common place. Socializing on social media has led to many downfalls. Causing trouble at home, school and work, it can seem like a labyrinth of pitfalls if one isn’t careful.

Scott Lees, Fryeburg Academy’s boys head lacrosse coach of four years, was forced to resign after posting to his personal Facebook page an open letter to the president that one of his friends had emailed him.

The open letter, written by “An American,” was written in response to a Cairo speech in 2009 where Obama said, “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s history.” Recently, Obama said again that Islam is part of American history.

Here is the letter Lees posted:


Dear Mr. Obama:

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?

Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?

Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?

Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?

Have you seen Muslims shaking hands with Muslim Girl Scouts?

Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life????

The answer is no, you have not.  Just ask yourself WHY???

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?  Declaration of Independence?  Bill of Rights?  Didn’t think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England?  No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?  No, they did not.  In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.  Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.”  Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?  Not present.  There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era?  Again, not present.  In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture.  So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.  Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

Where were Muslims during World War II?  They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.  The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazis in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?  If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.

No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.  Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.  To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America…

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.  They were Muslims.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major, a doctor and a psychiatrist, who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America!

P.S. Now, you can add the Boston Marathon bombings, too…

“I just thought it was an interesting article,” said Lees, a self-proclaimed independent conservative. “I thought it was an interesting letter to President Obama and his current administration who are not paying attention to Israel and focusing on Iran.”

He didn’t comment on the letter online and said the post didn’t get much of a response. None of his students interacted with it, only four adults ‘liked’ it and only one commented on it.

“It’s not like it went viral,” said Lees. “It’s not like everyone and their brother saw it.”

Lees made the post on March 17, two days later Fryeburg Academy officials were ready to fire him. He expected to have a meeting with the Head of Schools Erin Mayo and Dean Charlie Tryder to discuss the infraction, but Athletic Director Sue Thurston told him the decision to fire him was made.

“I’ve never been fired in my life,” said Lees, who also coaches hockey locally. “I’ve been coaching kids since 1992.”

Lees didn’t want the firing on his record and asked to resign. They accepted his resignation and asked Lees to take the post down and to ‘unfriend’ all students in his list of friends, requests he complied with.

Property manager and father of two, Lees is very disappointed at this outcome. He claims he would have done anything to keep this job, which pays $3,200 averaging out to only $7 an hour. He has devoted over 20 years of his life to coaching children and looked forward to it every year.

While he has been coaching at Fryeburg Academy, the team has made vast improvements, going from losing seasons to making the playoffs and winning a sportsmanship award. Putting W’s in the book isn’t his main focus, it’s most important to him to teach the kids to respect themselves, their teammates, officials and opponents. He had also contributed his own money to the team, buying two helmets valued at $360.

Up to this point, Lees had never made a controversial posting. He meant no disrespect to any group of people and was willing to publicly apologize. Lees claimed he never knew of any policy regarding what coaches could do or not do on their personal Facebook page. Since his leaving, parents and students have fought for his reinstatement, but their efforts have fallen on deaf ears. Mayo said the policy isn’t new and refused to change her decision.
