This is how fascist governments work. You play nice with the Regime, or you pay. JP Morgan learned the hard way according to FOX Business Network senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino. He says the Obama Regime targeted JP Morgan and fined them $13 billion because their CEO Jamie Dimon criticized Obama’s failed economic policies.
Sounds about right.
“This is something, most of it, that JP Morgan did not do. This was something they inherited. They were asked to buy Bear Stearns. They were asked to buy Washington Mutual. During the financial crisis of 2008. Asked by the US government by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. I know this for a fact because Paulson once told me this…Here’s why they’re doing it. Jamie Dimon went from being the greatest banker of all time, leading his company through the financial time, doing the government a favor to a critic of…

People who rely on food stamps to support their household budgets are going to get a 13 percent cut in their benefits on November 1, as a key provision in the 2009 stimulus expires. But don’t worry, low income people: the USDA website has tips on how you can avoid debilitating malnutrition.
Please note: this reduction is not related to the Republican-backed push to slice $4 billion out of funding for what’s technically known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.

Now three weeks later, he is considering delaying Obamacare, just as the House of Representatives proposed.
The White House appeared to leave the door open Monday to delaying the so-called individual mandate in the federal health care law, as President Obama acknowledged the main website for enrollment is not working as it should.
Obama is not fit to be dog catcher, much less president.
The irony on this is as thick as cold molasses on a December morning. Obama’s approval ratings are in the Bush range now – and yet, there seems to be no consensus among the “progressive” punditocracy that his presidency is over as there was for W. I ran across this little nugget today:
“Why is Washington still holding hundreds of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, long after years of interrogation and abuse have established that few, if any, of them are the deadly terrorists they have been held out to be?
And why is [the President] still issuing grandiose and provocative signing statements, the latest of which claims that the executive branch has the power to open mail when it sees fit?
I once believed that the common thread here is presidential blindness — an extreme executive-branch myopia that leads the chief executive to believe that these futile measures are…
