“Argue with neighbors, get in their faces… If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard… I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry…If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Still haven’t cleared out all the tabs…
Powerline reports on Q415 economic growth.
Gross domestic product (GDP) expanded at only a 0.7% seasonally adjusted annualized ratein the fourth quarter of last year, the Commerce Department reported today. That’s quite weak.
2015 as a whole wasn’t so good either. GDP expanded at only 2.4%, the same as in 2014. That’s called limping along. For as James Pethokoukis points out, from the end of World War II through 2005, the economy grew at an average annual rate of 3.5%.
Yup, it’s the worse recovery since the Great Depression.
From the Daily Caller: Secret Fed Docs Show Obama Misled Congress, Public During Debt Limit Crises
No real surprise here. Barry’s entire time during the Occupy the White House Golf Tour has been mainly him lying to Americans.

Time to clear out all the tabs on my browser again.
Let’s lead with this article from the Foundation for Economic Education. It points out what is wrong with Trumps claims about manufacturing jobs, and how to fix the problem. It goes on to point out that Trump is the moderate on the subject when compared to Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders. Sanders is completely divorced from reality on the subject, and his “solutions” have the high probability of making the thing he wants to fix even worse.
Socialists in America, like Bernie Sanders, used to point to Venezuela as the modern example of how socialism works. No so much anymore. Probably because socialism has created a Humanitarian disaster in Venezuela.
On the subject of 2016 Presidential candidates, the Washington Post reports that the FBI is granting immunity to person who set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server. In legal circles, this is what is known as a “bad sign.”
Modern Healthcare has a report on the Illinois Obamacare program. I’ll give you the short version, they operated at a $90.8 million loss in 2015. Remember back before the so-called “Affordable Care Act” was passed in the middle of the night right before Congress left Washington for Christmas? Come on, you remember. It was done using a procedure that even the democrats own resident high ranking Klansman objected to, in order to avoid a vote in the Senate. Something to do with the democrat stronghold of Massachusetts electing a Republican expressly to vote against Obamacare. There were some people, mainly those who had actually read the ACA, who objected to it, claiming it was economically unviable. They were uniformly called “racists”, which we now know means “anyone who disagrees with a democrat.”
Bill Clinton is on the campaign trail trashing Obama’s handling of the so-called economic recovery. Something he has in common with Bernie Sanders. What he is short on is how Hillary is going to a better job from federal prison.

“They Just Don’t Want A Job” – The Fed’s Grotesque “Explanation” Why 94.6 Million Are Out Of The Labor Force, or why the current BLS U3 number of 4.9 is a farce. Here is a hint, it has to do with a record low workforce participation rate.

Mark Dice is at it again. He’s on the streets of San Diego, asking people to sign a petition in support of President Obama’s plan to secure his legacy by liberating the people of North Korea by launching a nuclear strike at the heart of North Korea.
It is refreshing to see that there are a few sane people in San Diego who refuse to sign the petition. For the most part, the Obama cultists sign it in order to support their Dear Leader.

The Obama regime has been all about the graft, fraud, and corruption. It’s standard Chicago politics transplanted into Washington, D.C.
Just how is that hopey-changey stuff workin’ for ya?

Catching up on a bunch of stuff that caught my eye on the Interwebs.
Poll data shows that liberals are less patriotic. No surprise here.
RESEARCHER REAFFIRMS: AT LEAST 760,000 DEFENSIVE GUN USES A YEAR. “Gun Control” fanatics are in denial of the settled science.
The Obama White House Says They Will Not Release IRS Documents On Tea Party Targeting… Y’all know that the whole “most transparent administration ever” thing was just another lie Obama told to get the useful idiots to vote for him. This is just another example of his flipping off the American people.
What is the difference between fascism and progressive ideology? If you don’t know the answer to this, you can probably blame a public school teacher who identifies as a progressive. Both “are very hostile to individualism, especially in the field of economics.”

In case you missed extensive main stream media coverage of this story, here is a quick summary: “…the personal data of some four million federal employees who sought security clearances over the past 30 years had been compromised. Now the president of the American Federation of Government Employees, J. David Cox, has informed OPM in a letter that his organization believes “the Central Personnel Data File was the targeted database, and that the hackers are now in possession of all personnel data for every federal employee, every federal retiree, and up to one million former federal employees.””
In other words, the US got pwoned by hackers in the employ of the Communist Chinese government.
The United States is loosing the Cyberwar big time and our Dear Leader really doesn’t seem to care.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter operating near the Mexican border Texas was forced down after taking gunfire from people firing from Mexico. An article from Breitbart states that the helicopter was part of a team interdicting a narcotics load and working with the U.S. Border Patrol. The operation occurred near the headquarters of the Los Zetas drug cartel.
One has to wonder if the Los Zetas were one of the Mexican drug cartels that the Obama regime supplied weapons to.
I am prepared to be underwhelmed by our Dear Leader’s response to this armed attack from a foreign country on US federal agents. The Mexican drug cartels have declared war the US. Hopefully the response will be something stronger than supplying them more weapons payed for by the American taxpayer.

First off is a case of far left extremist (in this case a “social justice warrior”) putting up “Whites Only” stickers around Austin, TX. He did to show how conservatives are “racists” and stuff. All too often, cases of “hate crimes” like this are perpetrated by “progressives” in order to make reality match their extremist agenda. HT to Leslie Bates for this one.
Next, the “most transparent administration ever” has announced that the IRS isn’t going to release any documents concerning their well documented targeting of conservative political groups. In Obamamerica, the Freedom of Speech protections of the First Amendment only applies to speech our Dear Leader approves of.
The National Review points out that the Obama administration and Congressional democrats “are practically praying for a Christian terrorist.” They keep turning up to be Muslims though…
