Mouhammad said that the police had done nothing to stop the looters from destroying his store, especially as he watched for 25 minutes waiting for the police as the looters ripped out a recently replaced steel door, stole merchandise, and ripped out an ATM.

“This is the second time,” Mouhammad told WLS. “I’ve been open for just 40 days, so who will be responsible for this?”

The latest destruction took place after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that the city would hold looters accountable for their crimes.

Mouhammad’s store was one of the hundreds of stores being looted late Sunday into early Monday last week, with looters clearing out stores, WGN reported. Police arrested 100 people, and 13 police officers were injured during riots that evening.

Meanwhile, Mouhammad plans on suing the city of Chicago for taking over “25 minutes” to respond to his call that evening.

Obama seems worried about the DOJ dropping the Flynn case, is that because of what scandals it will reveal in his own administration?

Networks Refuse to Report Latest ObamaCare Fail: Two-Thirds of Small Business Employees to See Premiums Spike

Thanks to ObamaCare, about two-thirds of Americans who work at small businesses will see a spike in their health insurance premiums. Reaction at ABC, CBS and NBC to this devastating news for employees across the nation? A big fat yawn.

 No one at the Big Three networks have reported on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Death and Taxesreport, issued on Friday, that anticipates 65 percent of small businesses will see their health insurance premiums rise. This isn’t what the President promised on the 2012 campaign trail:

“The other thing we’ve done is to say, what are the critical needs of small business? A lot of time, one of the biggest challenges is to make sure that you, as a sole proprietor, that you can get health insurance for you and your family.  So when you hear about the Affordable Care Act — ObamaCare — and I don’t mind the name because I really do care.  That’s why we passed it. You should know that once we have fully implemented, you’re going to be able to buy insurance through a pool so that you can get the same good rates as a group that if you’re an employee at a big company you can get right now — which means your premiums will go down.” — President Barack Obama, campaign speech in Cincinnati, July 16, 2012

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal’s Jennifer Corbett Dooren broke down the CMS findings: “The report concluded that about 65% of small businesses, or plans covering 11 million people, would see an increase in insurance premiums under these so-called community-rating provisions of the health law. About 35% of employers would see a decrease for plans covering six million people. These employers aren’t required to pay a penalty under the federal health law if they don’t insure workers.” 

The CMS report is just the latest in a string of bad news for ObamaCare that the Big Three networks have either ignored or downplayed. ABC, CBS and NBC ignored a February 22 New York Times story that reported government jobs were also being hurt by ObamaCare. And the news of yet another delay in the employer mandate, and a devastating CBO report that claimed the Affordable Care Act would cost the equivalent of two million jobs were barely mentioned on the Big Three evening and morning shows.

PROOF OF IGNORANCE DEBATE


The rhetoric of the Left during the President Reagan years is back. Today the Left fills the news airwaves with new, “Talking Points”. During the Reaganomics years, the primary talking points of the Left used the term, “trickle down economics.” Of course, the Left was wrong, because Reaganomics gave us great economic growth and stability through the President Clinton years. Now, the new slogans used include the terms, “No more trickledown economics, but Middle Out economics.” This is supposed to refer to economics that originate with the middle class and moving out into the marketplace benefiting everyone.

You really do not need an economic degree to see that does not work. The Left whines about billionaires and millionaires getting the tax breaks from what conservatives propose. What they fail to mention, is that the group of people conservatives want to protect and empower are the Small Business people, and the Self-Employed. These two groups of business people are responsible for a large majority of the business world in America. These are also the group affected the most with tax increases, regulations, and OBAMACARE. The Top 1% of income earners has the least amount of effect on the economy, and yet pays a large sum of the taxes collected every year.

The Left’s professional pundits and “Pot Stirrers” want their voting base to concentrate on anyone that generates wealth. According to them, such people are evil and want to keep the poor oppressed. However, their argument fails with the Independents who are the swing vote. They know that such an argument is ridicules and not worth a second thought. That begs the question, why do they keep up the same old attack, arguments and talking points? I believe they only want to “Stir the Pot” of their voter base hoping they will be motivated to get out and vote on Election Day.

The reality of the Free Market Economy is simple. Let the market drive itself, get out the way with overt regulations, and allow the market to correct itself and weed out the greedy, the Swindler, and the fraud. More people are hired, creating more taxpayers, producing more revenue into the Federal and State coffers. That enables American business to do what they do best, and the economy takes care of itself. Creating government jobs and “stimulating” the economy has never had long-term effects.

The Left has a serious problem ever admitting they are wrong and have made bad decisions. They have equally hard time admitting that any of their plans have failed and caused great national harm. For example; The Left will never admit that their strangle hold on American business has been the reason American business, especially manufacturing, has been moved to other countries. Any of these business people will tell you that staying here would have meant bankruptcy and the business closure. It is not because of greed, it is because of survival. In reality, the Left is directly responsible for driving American jobs away and into the economies of other countries. Remember the definition of insanity?

The faster we get these socialist loving people out of our government the sooner our country can recover, if it’s not too late.
