President Obama Hanging Tough on Fiscal Cliff Negotiations: Republicans Frustrated

President Obama is going to raise taxes on the wealthy no matter what it takes.  Republicans are now fully grasping the reality that they won’t get the president to deviate from his position.   Additionally, the Republican Party is falling apart at the seams over disagreements in how to deal with the fiscal cliff and whether or not they should allow for new taxes on the rich.

Many Republicans signed a pledge for no new taxes.  Critics are saying that they broke the promise by agreeing to allow for certain deductions to be taken out of the tax code. When a party fights so hard to protect the interests of a small percentage of the population, you can smell the manipulation all around you.  Even worse, Republicans have convinced their masses that increasing taxes on the wealthy is an absolute small business job killer, when a very small percentage of small businesses are created by wealthy Americans

There is just one month to go in the tense negotiations over the fiscal cliff.  Some are saying that the “cliff,” a set of tax increases and spending cuts that are set to take effect if no settlement can be reached, is an imaginary time bomb created by Congress to scare the rest of us.

Obama is insisting that the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans are going to pay higher taxes, no matter what deal is reached.  But the president is also concerned about getting resistance from his fellow Democrats if he agrees to any cuts in entitlement programs, such a Medicaid and social security.

The Republican disarray is evident, even at the very top.  Republican minority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, won’t even openly support the negotiating tactics of Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

“I think it is important that the House Republican leadership has tried to move the process forward,” McConnell  said.

Boehner has been attacked by many leading Republicans, including Jim DeMint, a Senator from South Carolina.  He opposes tax increases of any kind.

“Speaker Boehner’s $800 billion tax hike will destroy American jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more,” DeMint said in a statement.

The story will surely get more interesting as the deadline approaches.

    Indeed, Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, and the most important function of any elected official is to uphold his or her sworn oath of office to use the Constitution, the principles of this nation to competently serve U.S. citizens and legal immigrants!

    I'm hoping that this, "asking for free stuff" is not the reason that Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, is petitioning or demanding that President Barack Obama serve the black community too. I do agree with Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, petition or reason that as black voters we voted for you in large numbers and all we ask is that you do something for the black community too……..

    (With good reason I didn't vote for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012)…….. I augmented this reason with other information that Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson can successfully make use of to acquire resources to benefit U.S. born blacks.

    I sent Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson an email to inform, to let her know that if elected black leaders used his or her expertise as an elected official, lawyer, etc., etc., too….

    "When you consider the reality of all the truly innocent black men and women violated by the atrocities of government, such as rogue police officers, unethical and criminal public servants, blatantly unfair judicial decisions, unearned penal incarceration and fines, there is no reason for the black community to be as poverty stricken as it is today." phrase taken from the email message…….then this would not be begging for handouts or freebees, this in fact would be a lawful and legitimate avenue to acquire assets derived from valid court cases, Constitutional protections, tort practice, etc., etc., for law abiding U.S. born blacks………I planted the seed of information, a seed based upon the aptitude of an elected official to use the "Oath of Office", the Constitution, a respective State Constitution, etc., etc., etc.,…..but whether or not, this seed of important information to realize the American Dream in this manner, will register with the reader, any listener, or an elected official, such as Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, President Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, other elected black leaders or public servants at the Federal, State, County, and City jurisdictions of government, only time will tell……

    The message is long overdue, and all I can hope for, is that this message sinks in.

    Ways to acquire assets:

    1. being an heir to wealth such as property, money, or other assets.

    2. working for your assets, be it through a private business venture or by being lawfully gainfully employed by someone else.

    3. Sheer Luck, hitting the lottery, legalized gambling and winning.

    4. Successful investment in stocks, bonds, or other financial investments.

    5. Suing and winning in a court of law, through the competent representation of a lawyer, the expertise of an elected official to uphold the Constitution in your behalf, etc., etc.

    6. Committing a misdemeanor or felonious criminal act… action which is counter-productive, and can lead to prison incarceration, the loss of a license to practice law, medicine, or other discipline, result in a truly earned destroyed reputation….this being an avenue that can result in maiming or death of the assailant (s), by victim(s) and/or lawful police officer(s) protecting the interests of any victim(s) or the general public……items (2), (4) and (5) being the most likely and possible avenues to acquire assets…..items (1) and (3) being the most unlikely and impossible avenues to acquire assets….item (6) being extremely risky, counter-productive, and not worth the risk of ruining your good name, lawfully losing assets by paying fines or restitution to any victim(s), losing your freedom, and possibly being maimed, killed, or legally executed by government Capital punishment penalties in the event the criminal act also results in the death of any victim robbed, victim's property burglarized, etc., etc.

    Forget about raising taxes on affluent individuals, business owners, and anyone whose net income is $250,000 or more. Confiscating assets from the wealthy, or any business owner, an avenue that President Barack "the Food Stamp President" Obama, the ObamaCrap Administration, and other ObamaCrap nonsense will not materialize, period, period, period………This ObamaCrap avenue will result in the affluent using avenues to shelter his or her assets, will result in private business downsizing or closing, businesses moving to a less hostile environment, resulting in higher unemployment, job losses instead of job gains, the destruction of free enterprise system and the "American Dream", and last but not least mutiny by the affluent, any property owner(s), business owner(s) against the U.S. government, i.e.,

    i.e., namely a Boston Tea Party rebellion.


    If this conference of influential black leaders doesn't include holding President Barack Obama, other elected black leaders or other elected officials accountable to the oath of office, the U.S. Constitution, a respective State Constitution, the "Bill of Rights", Constitutional protections……

    Oath of Office: "I, (President, Supreme Court Justice, Congressperson, Assemblyman, Mayor, City Councilperson, Judge, etc. ), during such times as I hold the office, I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States (the Constitution of the State of California, Maryland, Illinois, etc., etc.), against all enemies foreign (terrorist enemies of the U.S., illegal immigrants, un-American or un-Constitutional anything and everything, etc.) and domestic (treasonous individuals or organizations, any Police Chief who turns a blind eye to the actions of rogue police officers, unethical or criminal elected officials or public servants, illegal aliens or his or her advocates, un-American anything and everything), and that I will bear true faith and allegiance, to the Constitution of the United States , (State Constitution), and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter."…and voting should be based on how well an elected official upholds the "Oath of Office", the Constitution and not party affiliation.

    This is where a dysfunctional black electorate are misguided, in that voting allegiance should not be entirely associated with political Party affiliation or influenced by any Reverend to deliver votes to any political party.

    Upholding the oath of office and Constitutional protecting the rights in behalf of law abiding U.S. citizens and legal immigrants being the primary duty of any and all elected officials or public servants.

    If promoting the black agenda, “Black Leaders” Step Forward with a Black Agenda for Obama: Is It Serious?", etc., etc., is not about holding all elected officials accountable to the "Oath of Office, the Constitution, the "Bill of Rights", any State Constitution and it's respective "Bill of Rights" then this meeting is just meaningless, so meaningless that the result will continue to be useless, a waste of time, all of which being business as usual……….decades long destructive Democratic and Republic Party policies of making U.S. born blacks "fodder for the system", kicking U.S. born black men and women to the curb while President Obama, Clarence Thomas, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Democratic Party, other elected officials at the State, County, and City branches of government serve illegal aliens from around the planet, at the expense of the rights of law abiding U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.
