From the Wall Street Journal:
“There’s a real question as to whether the massive bond-buying program known as quantitative easing was worth the cost, former Federal Reserve official Andrew Huszar said Tuesday. Huszar, a senior fellow at Rutgers Business School and a former managing director at Morgan Stanley, noted a few of the program’s unintended effects.
Huszar apologized for his role in QE in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Monday.
‘I can only say: I’m sorry, America,” he wrote. “The central bank continues to spin QE as a tool for helping Main Street. But I’ve come to recognize the program for what it really is: the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time.’”
It was also a back door bailout of the Blue State political machine. Quantitative Easing was intended to bail out the insolvent Blue State public pension funds which require high rates of return from Wall Street in order to pay otherwise unsustainable benefits to public union pensioners and Democrat politicians. The stock market as it now exists has absolutely nothing to do with the “real” economy of goods, services and most importantly, jobs and income.”

Don’t believe the charge made by establishment Republicans that the efforts of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party to delay or defund Obamacare prevented the mainstream media from reporting the failures of Obamacare.
Sen. Cruz put the focus on the utter devastation already being inflicted on the American economy and health care system.
In the coming months it will be abundantly clear to voters that Senator Cruz was correct in trying to mitigate the destruction unleashed by Obamacare.
The establishment Republicans and their political consultants, content with feeding off crumbs from the Democrat table, will reap the political whirlwind with their Democrat “friends.”
President Obama is expected to name an Obamacare Enrollment Czar today at a White House ceremony. The leading candidate is one of the two individuals the White House and mainstream media have located who has actually been able to enroll in Obamacare in the three weeks since Obamacare was unveiled. It is hoped that the Enrollee/Czar will somehow be able to help enroll at least a few other people in Obama’s signature achievement before it collapses.

Now that the shutdown/debt limit “diversion” is over (for now) the mainstream media outlets can focus on the failure of the Obamacare launch and its failure to live up to Obama’s repeated promises.
How about demanding to know the actual numbers of people who have purchased an Obamacare policy? How about demanding that rate schedules and/or policy prices of a publicly-financed program be fully accessible to the public and not only to those who have registered by giving social security numbers and financial information?
Mainstream media is not interested? Didn’t think so.

Don’t believe the charge made by establishment Republicans that the efforts of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party to delay or defund Obamacare prevented the mainstream media from focusing on the failures of Obamacare. The media would not have highlighted Obamacare’s problems no matter what the Republicans did or did not do regarding the budget and debt limit issues. This will be made obvious over the next several weeks.
Obama has issued his new instructions to the mainstream media. The new narrative is whether Boehner can rein in the racist Tea Party radicals and pass so-called common sense immigration reform (amnesty). The Obamacare debacle will be relegated to “old news” status.
The theme common to Democrat legislative, executive, judicial and electoral policies is to draw as many people as possible into local, state and federal government entitlement and benefit programs. But not only that. Obamacare, and other such programs, are especially important in order to accomplish registration of every single potential Democrat voter (“entitlement-voters”) with the government.
The danger is not that Democrats are compiling government-funded databases of people who don’t want to be on a government database, it’s that they are using taxpayer funds to compile databases of entitlement-voters to expand and solidify Democrat political power.
What will follow entitlement-voter registration will be required notification to those on government databases to register to vote and to show up at the polls to vote. Democrats tell us, after all, that we want everyone eligible to vote to exercise this critical right. This is happening already.
The next step is to provide for online voting, over an extended period of time each voting cycle, so that not one vote is missed. Voting will become a year-round process. Because, we are told, it is important that everyone actually vote. Of course, entitlement-voter databases such as the one created for Obamacare will be used to contact voters and to insure that they do vote.
And will they vote for a candidate who suggests small or no increases in benefits or for a candidate who favors large increases in benefits to even out inequality and promote fairness? Entitlement-voters’ benefits will depend on the answer.
Shocking. Liberal Hollywood star and champion of the 99% forced to rush from NYC premiere lest he be required to pay NY and NYC income taxes!
So the DC Navy Yard killer was obsessed with violent video games peddled by the progressives from Hollywood and the Silicon Valley, was pushed over the edge by President Obama’s ceaseless racial and class warfare and was granted a security clearance by the federal government while being treated by the federal government for paranoia and “hearing voices in his head” so that he could use the shotgun recommended by Joe Biden to facilitate mass murder?
And this will somehow be the fault of the NRA and the Tea Party? Got it.
And could someone let Sen. Feinstein know that the perpetrator with a security badge could have used a knife or a club and the element of surprise to subdue the guard/officer from whom he obtained the first handgun. “Gun Control” is irrelevant to this crime.
The AFL-CIO plans to “organize” non-working leftists and invite them to join the AFL-CIO in order to address a crisis in membership. The Center expects that these new associations will be referred to as “leisure unions” and will advocate for higher government assistance payments to those who vote Democrat for a living.
In addition the AFL-CIO will attempt to union-organize the South because “the labor movement needs to follow the workforce, which is moving down south” [to escape the labor movement].
US District Court Judge Shiraz Scheindlin recently ruled that NYC’s stop-and-frisk policy, which has helped to dramatically reduce gun violence and crimes, is unconstitutional. Judge Scheindlin imposed draconian restrictions on the police and formerly “low information” voters are quite happy with the Judge:
“Thugs with guns think they’re the ones calling the shots on the streets in the wake of the anti-NYPD stop-and-frisk ruling.
“You can’t stop me! You can’t do that no more! There are new rules!” suspect Steven Sidbury, 21, allegedly yelled at officers as they approached him in crime-riddled East New York last week.”
. . . One source predicted that there will be more bloodshed in the streets as criminals fearlessly carry their weapons instead of stashing them somewhere — and fire in the heat of the moment.
“They’re going to carry their guns, and if they get into a fight, they’re going to shoot right away,’’ the source warned.
“Every single [perp] I have encountered is very happy about the ruling,’’ a Manhattan police source said.
“It is a very common thought now amongst perps that stop-question-and-frisk infringes on their rights to carry concealed guns.”
You can be sure that Scheindlin and the pandering progressive politicians will refuse all responsibility for the coming NYC crime wave.
