    2. *Obama changed the face of our economy for the worse*

      Question: What do Hong Kong, Singapore, Chile, Ireland and Estonia have in common?

      Answer: They all have more economic freedom than the United States.

      According to the 2016 edition of the Index of Economic Freedom — compiled annually by the Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation — America has matched its lowest global ranking ever at #11, its seventh decline in the past eight years. Measuring such factors as rule of law, regulatory efficiency, limited government, and open markets, they conclude, “The United States remains mired in the ranks of the ‘mostly free,’ the second-tier economic freedom status into which it dropped in 2010.”

      Many believe we’ve arrived at this state of affairs due to the nature America’s mixed economy—capitalism coupled with government controls—and its nexus with President Barack Obama’s eight years of collectivist ideas and policies into American life and the economy. The result: Obama and his administration have upset, perhaps in some respects irrevocably, the tenuous balance between private enterprise (free markets, productivity, entrepreneurial growth, etc.) and the countervailing winds of government coercion and intervention.

      Certainly one of the primary culprits in this dynamic is the blizzard of regulations imposed under Obama. As reported by Sam Batkins of the American Action Forum (AAF), the Obama presidency has implemented 600 major regulations—defined as regulations that have “an economic impact of $100 million or more”—and is on track to enact 641 major regulations before he leaves office. This figure shatters the 426 regulations under President George Bush and represents a new major regulation every three days—according to Batkins costing, “on average, $1.4 billion . . . With the possibility of 50 more rules, the lame duck tally could push this regulatory cost figure to $813 billion . . . more than the GDP of the Philippines.”

      Faced with these and other findings, Obama remains obdurate and combative—offering kingly declarations in response: “By almost every measure, we are better off than when I took office” and “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.” These assertions fly in the face of the numerous non-fictions he simply refuses to acknowledge: a labor participation rate near a 40-year low (including a record number of women); his single-handed accumulation of more debt (at $19.5 trillion and counting) than every other president before him combined;46 million Americans living in poverty and nearly 50 million on food stamps; his presidency overseeing a record number of home foreclosures; as well as America’s credit rating downgraded for the first time ever . . . the litany goes on. Is it any wonder that trust in Obama’s leadership and his administration remains at historically low levels? After almost eight years of government corruption, ever-expanding spending and taxation, bloating of the administrative state, and governance repeatedly highlighting racial, social and religious divisions, the once unassailable belief in America as the freest, strongest, noblest, most prosperous nation in history has been supplanted by a vision of ourselves that we do not recognize and from which we may never recover.

      Obama’s insistence on government being increasingly involved in the country’s private sector’s economic decision-making has inevitably given rise to more and more lobbyists, more special interest groups, more political influence, and more crony capitalism—which makes a mockery of his pledge to create an “unprecedented level of openness” and his claim that his administration has been “the most transparent administration in history.” His proof? Every visitor who comes to the White House is now a part of the public record.

      Given Obama’s lineage, his mentors and political influences, his controversial friends and associations, his background as a community organizer and neighborhood economic developer, should we be surprised that he is a man who knows only how to slice up the pie, rather than grow the pie? It is who he is. It’s in his DNA. He can’t help himself.

      Is it only a matter of time before America slides down to the next lower level of the economic freedom index and joins the ranks with Poland, Barbados, Albania, Rwanda, Namibia, Guatemala, Italy, Slovenia, and others—as “moderately free”?

    3. @joe coder Democrats are going scorched earth because they are losing. Hope the judge tells us everything

    1. @Sacanto ngdeSoto stop believing the lies. This just happened yesterday yet the media knows the whole story. C’mon. Don’t be so gullible and naive.

    2. The assassin dead after “self-inflicted” gun shot, is what you get with Obama regime turned FBI into KGB! The FBI has become the Murder Inc of the Democrap Party now.

  1. A killed killer… It’s all very confusing.

    Condolences to the family. No parent should have to bury their child.

  2. Win or lose in November, one thing won’t change for Trump: Over the next few years, his company must settle a series of TREMENDOUSLY large debts. Before the end of a theoretical second term, his company will have to refinance—or, in a far less likely scenario, pay off—nearly a half-billion dollars in loans linked to some of his most prized assets, including Trump Tower. These debts are maturing at the worst time for Trump, whose hotels and resorts have been plagued by declining revenues. And that was before the coronavirus pandemic pummeled the hospitality industry, forcing the full or partial closure of most of his hotel and resort properties.

    On financial disclosure forms, Trump has reported holding 14 loans on 12 proper­ties. At least six of those loans, representing about $479 million in debt, are due over the next four years. Some are guaranteed by Trump himself, meaning a creditor could come after his personal—not corporate—­assets if he defaults. If he holds onto the White House, the refinancing of these debts could take his conflicts of interest to absurd new heights. How will the public know if these deals are on the up and up or whether Trump is receiving sweetheart terms from a bank that wants an in with the president? And what might a lender desire in return for helping Trump out of a financial jam?

    Trump’s biggest creditor is Deutsche Bank, which in the late 1990s took a gamble on the real estate developer whose history of corporate bankruptcies made him untouchable by most other lenders. Deutsche’s commercial lending division learned the hard way one reason why other banks considered Trump persona non grata: If pushed by his creditors on payments, Trump shoves back. In 2008, after he defaulted on a loan for his Chicago hotel and condo development, he filed a multibillion-­dollar suit accusing Deutsche and others of contributing to the recent financial meltdown, which he blamed for his inability to repay the loan.

    Nevertheless, Deutsche’s private banking division, which caters to wealthy clientele, continued to lend to Trump, giving him $125 million, spread over two loans, to finance the purchase and renovation of his Doral golf resort in 2012. Both are floating rate loans, meaning the interest rate fluctuates based on market conditions, which lending experts say usually indicates they are interest-only loans. If so, Trump probably hasn’t paid down much if any of the principal and will owe something close to the whole $125 million when the loans come due in 2023.

    In 2014, Trump took out a separate floating loan from Deutsche’s private bank to bankroll the development of his luxury hotel in Washington, DC. The balance of this $170 million debt is payable in 2024. That year, Trump will also owe Deutsche between $25 million and $50 million in connection with his Chicago hotel and complex.

    Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank has lasted longer than any of his marriages and is cloaked in more secrecy. Now the US Supreme Court is considering whether to shed light on the links between Trump and Germany’s largest bank. Manhattan prosecutors and Washington lawmakers want tax and financial records related to Trump and his crime family’s business, which Trump has sued to block.

    But if the Supreme Court orders Deutsche to produce the vast array of documents demanded by Congress — from records of the bank’s credit and risk committees, to files on Trump “related to any domestic or international transfer of funds in the amount of $10,000 or more” — it would also provide more insight into Deutsche itself. What risks did it take on after years inmwhich there was reckless trading, allegations of false accounting and inept management.

    Three years ago it accepted guilt over a “mirror trading” scheme, which allowed clients to move $10bn from Russia while circumventing anti-money laundering rules. It seemed an open-and-shut case for the US DoJ, which has levied swingeing fines on other foreign banks for illegal cross-border transactions. Investigators interviewed Deutsche staff in a criminal probe. Then: nothing.

    A likely theory is that the DoJ, now under control of Trump’s lackey Bill Barr, is unlikely to punish Trump’s main creditor, especially over any Russian offences. In that view, Deutsche Bank’s unfathomable loyalty to Trump might just payoff.

    1. @Virginia Tyree well, the only problem is that I get lonely. Not married, no children. because of spiritual and political choices, I basically have lost almost all my friends over the years. still trying t develop new friends. But its okay. Sometimes I wonder what people who see my posts really think about me. I am complicated yet educated. but I am not perfect. Sometimes I am wrong about things. I understand BOTH SIDES of the protesters. This wouldn’t be happening in first place if we didn’t have a corrupt system. Poor people take too much crap and hate, and then they can’t take it anymore. Escapism for me, is meditating on nature, animals, friendly dogs and cats ,birds. Comic book collecting, enjoying Skyrim and Fallout 4, even though I am a bit older than most players. I like Broadway musical music..but can’t go anywhere because all that is closed! Love old rock but also folk music. Like the older TV shows a lot more than the modern one. Love nostaligia, “yesterday today” channel and memories of past America culture. Love old cars and love visiting at Antique stores and flea markets. ??? But I am not a good guy and don’t apologize for it. I have may dark side. I am supposed to be that way. Destiny

    2. 7 20 20 Hey again@catsintexas, There’s a saying, “accept what is”; easier, of course, said than done. Also, understanding how the mind works & creates one’s thoughts may help to give one an understanding that we only have “now” & this too shall pass. I find learning/reading is helpful & gives me insight (s) into human behavior & my own behavior. It’s helpful to be kind to yourself; again, easier said than done. I was in denial, for a short time, about experiencing the pandemic; USA could be similar to other coutries & have some type of “normalcy” & move foward. Well, we know how that’s working out; Covid raging through the country. Humans are perfect in their imperfection. This is a YouTube comment-thread & confessions about one’s self, may not be helpful. Your destiny will be what you want it to be & work toward that goal; imho. v

    3. 7 20 20 Hey again@catsintexas, Sure, anytime 😊…thank you for your input & hang in there; moods change, nature helps. v

    4. UPDATE: On his website, Roy Den Hollander described himself as an “anti-feminist” lawyer who defended “men’s rights.” His personal writings and life’s work reveal a toxic stew of sexist and racist bigotry.

      He had unsuccessfully filed lawsuits against bars and night clubs offering “ladies’ nights,” claiming they violate the 14th Amendment, and he filed suits against the federal government, challenging the constitutionality of its Violence Against Women Act — the “Female Fraud Act,” as he referred to it — and against Columbia University, for its Women’s Studies .

  3. No loose ends

    That’s why you need 2 hitmen for a single job. Because a sloppy job has no refund.

    1. You mean were all the real monsters get off scot free? and get drafted to the USA with fake names and backstories? And are later setup with cushy jobs?

    2. @L X lol russians. Keep up that hoax, maybe if you keep repeating it for 4+ years someone will believe you. The Russians made Hillary talk about Pizza and hot dogs too! Darn those all powerful russians!!

    1. 7 20 20 Hey@Diana Hulstine, Look who’s calling you “dumb”. Big- mouth-dummies are always the first ones to throw the stones. Stay safe, keep calm, be well. v

    2. @Diana Hulstine you can’t help it. You’re so imprisoned in the illusory world of Trump hate– pounded into you on an hourly basis by MsM–that you can only respond like the rat that learns it can get a food pellet by touching a certain toggle. Sad, yet I don’t feel sorry for you.

    3. I find it odd that the Clinton’s have nothing win or lose out of all this, but the Trumpards are quick to blame them. Humm, this is a Trump and Barr hit all the way!

    1. But they weren’t though, Trump even kicked the dude out of his hotel for touching a minor. And even helped in the prosecuting of him. So where does this fake news come from?

  4. How many times did the gunman shoot himself in the back of the head when he committed “suicide”?

    1. Ardent Valor you’re gonna have to toughen up… it’s gonna be rough in November for you snowflakes when Donnie loses… even Republicans want Biden… Bunker boy is a lame duck

    2. @R Thomas That’s not ironic at all. Look man, I’m really sorry for what’s been done to you, I have faith in humanity so I believe you can wake up from the bad dream you’re currently having. I pray that God will give you a ravenous appetite for the truth, and may you have your fill and feed others. Best to you.

  5. This federal judge was handling the deutsche bank fraud trial. Deutsche bank laundered money for ppl like Epstein and trump/russians.

    1. Wrong again this judge is working on the child molesters case aka the Dems you support but let’s try and spin a false narrative because children don’t matter but Trump’s money does..

  6. This whole case reeks of high-level corruption and foul play.
    It brings back to memory the Kennedy assassination, where all implied persons died in weird circumstances.
    Who could be behind all this? Barr?

  7. The judge had just been assigned a case that involved Deutsche Bank and the Jeffrey Epstein money.

    1. @Jingoe So its MOST LIKELY connected to why that Judge was targeted. What kind of a comment is ‘so’?

    2. I would call that very interesting. Death seems to follow this whole thing. Who is behind it?

    3. Negligence & Complicit media. Authoritarian state. Own your part in the fall and danger of the end of Democracy MSNBC. FFS it’s not rocket science when you know how many have had lives and families threatened. May not be the case but not mentioning connection drops credibility to Zero & Complicit Cover Up to Code Red.

    4. Wait this is tied to Epstein? Now this is interesting. I thought this problem already died with Epstein.

  8. Hmmm, the body count is climbing as the clock ticks to November. Could this DOJ be silencing it’s witnesses…and judges?? Some coincidence huh?

  9. He committed suicide with three shot to the heart and one to the head…. This is really obvious that he was HIRED by somebody.. I suspect Donnie

  10. “They” hired a hit man to take care or scare the judge and then another hitman took care of the first hitman!
