The Export-Import Bank (EX-IM Bank); Just Another Costly, Govt Agency Benefiting Huge Corporations At The Expense of Small Businesses & Taxpayers

August 8, 2014

Just think how many things could be taken care of by government that isn’t or how much more smoothly current programs could run but aren’t because of a supposed lack of funds (the VA, the IRS and BORDER SECURITY to name just a few). The Export-Import Bank is another sterling example of not only wasted dollars, but lost jobs and the continuation of crony capitalism. It gives taxpayer backed loans, credit and credit insurance to FOREIGN companies in the hope they will buy US exports.

Here are 3 good reasons not to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank which will be voted on shortly after the August recess:

  1. It’s expensive
  2. It doesn’t boost U.S. Exports
  3. It’s crony capitalism at its most obvious (bureaucrats providing profit to private players)

Every time reauthorization for the EX-IM Bank comes up the politicians who like it (due to kickback & bribes received) claim it should just be reformed, but we all know how that goes in Washington D.C. don’t we? And BTW, Obama spouting off in the beginning of this video flipped-flopped on the EX-IM Bank between the time of his 2008 campaign and now. Watch the Liar-in-Chief  do what he does best.

Obama: “You Know I Tell The Truth” . . . . & The Only Truth He Ever Told

November 4, 2012

This is the truth he warned us about:

And this is the truth we got-

“Transparency & the rule of law will be the touchstone of this administration.” (None of the health care negotiations or deliberations were made public on CSPAN even after Obama said it would all be televised for the American public).

“If you have insurance that you like, you will be able to keep that.” (Companies are dropping employee health care plans in droves because of the costs. Companies in favor with Obama were issued waivers).

“No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase; not income tax, payroll taxes, capital gains taxes, not a dime of tax increases.” (taxes have gone up for everyone and are slated to skyrocket even more in 2013).

“I’ve told Congress to close loopholes that allow big corporations to avoid paying their fair share or in some cases paying no taxes at all.” (After a $50 Billion bailout GM made huge profits and paid no federal income taxes in 2011).

“This country succeeds when everyone plays by the same set of rules.” (illegal immigrants are granted in-State tuition over American citizens).

“I pledge to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term.” (it has increased by $5.5 Trillion!).

Speaking of Benghazi-gate “Look nobody wants to find out what happened more than I do.” (then why have weeks gone by without any plausible explanation of why our Ambassador and other Americans were even in Libya after the Red Cross & other Embassies had closed due to security concerns? Why continue to promote the lie about a YouTube video causing a spontaneous demonstration that got out of hand? And why Mr. Obama was military support denied as you watched the attack in near “real time” as Charlene Lamb of the State Dept testified?

And then there’s this on the campaign trail-

“I will be held accountable. If I don’t have this done in 3 years this will be a 1-term proposition” (This is true. On November 6th you’re history!).

Is He or Isn’t He? You Need To Decide (pdq) Because America’s Future May Depend On It

September 2, 2012

Is it just his narcissistic personality? Is he merely a pathological liar, or maybe is he outright crazy? I honestly do not know. There is NO rationale to justify or explain the many, many inconsistencies of this man.

Just a sample of the lies told during his 2008 campaign.

Iftar Dinner– celebrating with Muslims in the White House the end of Ramadan, meanwhile trashing American Catholics’ right to freedom of religion

53 seconds that should end his Presidency

This is amusing, but deadly serious kids. DO NOT TAKE THIS ELECTION LIGHTLY.
