Wayne Allyn Root on the Suicide Bomber in the White House

Wayne Allyn Root

I told you so. Forget ISIS. Forget Al Queda. Forget Putin. Forget China. The worst threat to America is Barack Hussein Obama.

I’ve screamed from the highest mountains for almost seven long years now that we have a suicide bomber in the White House. Obama is dive-bombing our nation’s economy the same way that the Germanwings Airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago.
Except this isn’t one plane and a couple hundred souls. Obama is taking the entire American economy and all of us down with him.

I’ve told everyone and anyone who would listen for almost seven years that Obama is following the exact plan he learned as my college classmate at Columbia University Class of ’83. The plan is called “Cloward-Piven.”

The plan is simple: to destroy capitalism and “American exceptionalism” you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to halt, full-time jobs are killed, businesses fail in record numbers, the middle class is murdered financially, the debt implodes and the economy is overwhelmed.

Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.

To make this plan work Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.

How does this end? According to Cloward-Piven a majority of Americans wind up dependent on government, they vote out of desperation for whatever political party promises to keep the checks coming or better yet, expand the checks. Then slowly, like boiling a frog who doesn’t realize what’s happening until he’s dead, capitalism dies. The very same people destroyed by government are now dependent on government to survive, they beg government to save them, and that opens the door to a Big Brother socialist economic system.

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.

You don’t have to believe me. Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter GDP growth was NEGATIVE. This is proof that the plan is working. The US economy is in reverse. We are in quicksand and we’re all drowning. Obama is taking us down like a suicide bomber.

These aren’t opinions. This is a fact. Now you just have to decide based on the evidence of a dying economy after almost seven years under Obama…

Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot…dangerous to himself and everyone around him…or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism. Because it’s either it’s one or the other.

Here are the facts. The first quarter GDP (Gross Domestic Product) – which is the measurement of our economy- was just revised on Friday to negative 0.07%. This number is a disaster.

But this isn’t some aberration or outlier. This is the entire Obama presidency. Obama’s seven first quarters as president are at a combined average of NEGATIVE 0.43%. Obama is the only president in the history of America’s recorded economic measurement to accomplish this. http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/terence-p-jeffrey/blame-it-global-cooling-obama-has-lowest-average-1stq-gdp-growth-any

Let me repeat: This is the worst seven-year record in the history of America’s recorded GDP.

Obama is also the only president in history to have produced four separate first quarters that were negative. We started measuring GDP in 1947. Obama is certainly one of a kind…a trendsetter. He is setting records for disaster and futility never before imagined in the greatest country in world history. And guess what? We’re all going along for the ride. I hope you buckled your seatbelt.

Yet no one appears willing to say out loud and on the record that something is very wrong…that this isn’t normal.
No one is willing to say this isn’t possible to do by mistake. No one is willing to suggest there is a madman…a suicide bomber at the controls, taking our economy and country down just like that German pilot dive-bombed that plane into the ground two months ago.

Want more proof? The average first quarter GDP since measurements began in 1947 was 4.0%.
Under Harry Truman it was 4.5%.
Under Eisenhower it was 3.2%.
Under Kennedy it was 4.9%.
Under LBJ it was 8.3%.
Under Nixon 5.3%.
Under Ford 2.3%.
Under Carter 2.4%.
Under Reagan 2.1% (and that was because Reagan inherited disaster from Carter).
Under HW Bush it was 2.9%.
Under Clinton 2.6%.
Under George W. Bush 1.7%.

Under Obama here are the seven 1st quarters:

Let me repeat- that’s the worst record in recorded history. That’s the only NEGATIVE average in recorded history. That’s the only time we’ve had four negative first quarters in history.

What’s the excuse? Winter? Cold weather in the first quarter? Really? So America didn’t have winter under Truman or JFK or LBJ? Winter is a new phenomenon that only effects Obama’s first quarter? Even more compelling, don’t Canada, Russia and China have winter in the first quarter too? So how come their GDP growth isn’t affected by winter?

Here’s the thing folks. Economists are saying the second quarter doesn’t look much better. Last I checked there is no winter in April, May and June. So why is this quarter off to the same kind of start? Why did all of this economic decline happen while gas prices plummeted? Economists predict a “windfall” for consumers because of lower gas prices. Yet the economy dive bombed and consumer spending stalled- even with cheap gas prices.

It’s clear “who” and “what” is to blame. The who is a suicide bomber in the White House named Barack Obama. The what is “Cloward-Piven.” Obama has exploded spending, entitlements, dependency, regulations and debt to destroy capitalism and the US economy. He has set world records in each of those categories- the most spending ever, the most entitlement spending ever, the most regulations and cost of regulations ever, the most debt ever created in world history. Cloward-Piven.

The facts are in. The results are in. No one could be this stupid. No one could be this ignorant. No one could produce a record this bad by mistake. It isn’t possible. We clearly have a suicide bomber in the White House.

Wayne Allyn Root on the GOP Dream Team

Wayne Allyn Root

The GOP keeps bringing a knife to a gun fight. The result is we’re getting killed. We’re getting killed even after we won the most historic landslide in modern history. It’s time to change strategy.

The media tells us to play nice, be ‘gentlemen’ and compromise. Look where it’s gotten us – a bankrupt country with over $18 trillion in debt and income taxes at the same level as bankrupt socialist Greece. Worse, the labor force participation rate is at all-time lows and more businesses fail each day than open.

We are facing the end of the America Dream and death of the greatest middle class in world history because we have played nice, acted like gentlemen and compromised. We’re standing around acting like “gentlemen” while Obama turns America into Detroit. Like that movie “Network” it’s time to open our window and scream “I’m not going to take it anymore!”

It’s time for a “GOP dream team” of street fighters to take on the evil that is destroying America by making us all dependent on big government. It’s time to kick ass and take no prisoners.
It’s time to get behind one nominee and then name our entire team and announce what that team will do to save the US economy… the middle class… and the American Dream.

It’s time to inspire passion and enthusiasm by showing we stand for something. That something is smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, pay down the debt, and giving more power to the citizens. Let the liberal media try to call that “extreme.” The American people will vote for that vision.

Liberals and the media told us we’d lose if we ran an “extremist” like Ronald Reagan. Instead, he won in two historic landslides. Since then, every milk-toast moderate we’ve run, George HW Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney lost.

The key to victory is the passion, energy, intensity and enthusiasm of your base, combined with inspiring independents and undecided voters by painting a picture of hope, prosperity and patriotism. You have to get people excited. Being “moderate” doesn’t excite anyone. Although it’s a little early for me to endorse anyone, here is a look at a potential “GOP DREAM TEAM.”

Scott Walker as the GOP presidential nominee. Here’s a man from the Midwest, without a college degree, with a blue-collar mentality. Here’s a man who fought the money and manpower of every union in America…and won. Not once, not twice, but three times in blue state Wisconsin. He didn’t do it with kindness. Despite death threats against his wife and children, Scott Walker never gave an inch. He turned a $3 billion deficit into a billion dollar surplus, then handed the money back to the taxpayers. That’s a fighter. That’s courage. That’s a leader with a spine, who won’t fold when the biased-liberal media tries to slander and destroy him. Walker’s a man bringing a bazooka to a gun fight.

His choices for Vice President are plentiful. The GOP bench is fantastic and diverse from Latino men like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio…to women like Carly Fiorina, Governor Susanna Martinez and Governor Nikki Haley…to Libertarian heroes like Rand Paul…to a brilliant African American brain surgeon like Dr Ben Carson…to a genius policy wonk like Governor Bobby Jindal. The list is long.

We’ve been governed by inept political hacks for far too long. It is time for a dream team of experienced, committed adults who will kick ass and never fold when the going gets tough. The GOP Presidential nominee needs to name his entire dream team.

Do that and we’ll put the fear of God into liberals and the media. Here is how we differentiate ourselves, paint a picture of hope, and inspire our base! Here is how we win 270 electoral votes.


Attorney General of the United States – Ted Cruz. Let’s put a true defender of the Constitution in a place where he can do just that. Can you imagine the fear we’ll drive into the heads and hearts of law-breaking liberals and Marxists. No compromise, no mercy.

Treasury Secretary – Rand Paul. Put a Libertarian in charge of the economy, taxes and the IRS. Watch the US economy enjoy the greatest expansion in history with a true, free market Libertarian in charge. Rand Paul is a fighter. No compromise, no mercy.

Defense Secretary- Allen West. Here’s the man born to stand up for the honor of the military and defend the greatest nation in world history. No compromise, no mercy.

Secretary of State- you’re going to love this one: Donald Trump. Rather than weaklings afraid of their shadows, turn the world’s greatest, pit-bull negotiator loose on our adversaries like China and Russia. Let him negotiate the nuclear deal with Iran. No compromise, no mercy.

Chairman of the Federal Reserve – Dr. Ron Paul. The first father-son cabinet team will stand up to, audit, and rein in the Fed before the Fed destroys our economy. Ron Paul’s entire life has been preparation for this. No compromise, no mercy.

Homeland Security Secretary – Trey Gowdy. Protect our borders with common sense. No compromise, no mercy.

ICE- Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Need I say more?

Health & Human Services Secretary – Dr. Ben Carson. Here’s the guy born to dismantle Obamacare. No compromise, no mercy.

Labor Secretary- Darrell Issa. A street fighter who will stand up for America’s workers, not union bosses. No compromise, no mercy.

Energy Secretary- Sarah Palin. You want jobs? Take the shackles off and drill baby drill! No compromise, no mercy.

Commerce Secretary- Herman Cain. A brilliant businessman and unabashed capitalist who will get American working again. No compromise, no mercy.

Special Economic Advisors – Mitt Romney, Jack Welsh, Steve Wynn, Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump (doing double duty). Put politics aside and put people who understand business in charge of the economy. No compromise, no mercy.

Education Secretary- Bobby Jindal. Here’s the brightest guy in the room, bar none. Put him in charge of taking on the teachers unions with creative ideas to turn around our failing education system. No compromise, no mercy.

Now, a personal plug… put me, Wayne Allyn Root, in charge of the Small Business Administration. Small business is the economic engine of America. I know how to motivate, inspire and empower the millions of mom and pop businesses on Main Street, not Wall Street. I stand for giving power to small business, not the welfare state or illegal aliens. No compromise, no mercy.

This is how you win an election- by exciting and inspiring Americans with an experienced, all-star GOP Dream Team that actually stands for something- America first!


This is how you tell liberals to go to hell.

Wayne Allyn Root on Black America

Wayne Allyn Root

Read Wayne Root’s Latest on front page of Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. Already in first hour headed for all-time record readership.


By Wayne Allyn Root

Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don’t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence.

Where is Obama? Our nation’s first black president has been silent as blacks tear apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word when thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word about black-on-black crime, rioting, looting, burning or murder?

Where is the black Mayor of Baltimore? She clearly ordered police to stand down, make no arrests, stop no crimes while her city was being destroyed, while the businesses she is sworn to protect were being looted and burned. She clearly said days before the riots went ballistic that she wanted to create a “space for those who want to destroy.” Then she blamed the media for merely repeating her words verbatim. http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/baltimore-city-mayor-allows-rioters-space-to-destroy-during-weekend-violent-protests-video

Where are the black leaders? Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

How about the war on poverty? How’s that worked out for black America? The longest and most expensive war in American history has been in place since LBJ and inner cities like Baltimore look exactly the same. Same poverty. Same hopelessness. Same anger and violence. Same rioting and blame and excuses. After $22 trillion has been spent- more (by far) than all the wars in the history of America combined, the results are…nothing. http://www.ncpa.org/sub/dpd/index.php?Article_ID=25288

I hear plenty of excuses from black America. I hear they feel powerless. Really? With a black president, the first black Attorney General, another black Attorney General, a black Mayor of Baltimore and a black city council? All that and you still feel powerless?

How has having the first black president helped black America? With black unemployment double that of whites, who is to blame?

I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today. She wished white America would be half as outraged as outraged over “police violence” as they are over the riots. https://twitter.com/search?q=sally%20kohn&src=typd

Well I have a message for Sally Kohn:

I wish black Americans would be half as outraged over black on black violence, black on black murders, black gangs, black drug dealers, black looting, black burning of black small businesses, black rioting as they are about one white cop killing one black kid.

And one more thought for Sally and liberals like her…

What has 50 years of black rule, liberal welfare and entitlement policies, excuses and blame towards white people done for black Americans in inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit? Where’s the progress in those cities under 100% Democrat politicians and policies?

The sighting of a white Republican on the streets of cities like Detroit and Baltimore is just a rumor. There were no Republicans at the podium in Baltimore yesterday with the mayor. 100% black leadership. Yet urban inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit are in ruins.

It’s time to take personal responsibility. Slavery was a long, long, long time ago. My Jewish relatives were enslaved by Hitler and the Nazis much more recently than your ancestors were enslaved by the South. It’s time to move on.

It’s time to fight for jobs, not welfare. It’s time to look within yourselves. It’s time to stop blaming others. It’s time to blame black fathers. It’s time to blame black leaders. It’s time to blame a black president. It’s time to ask what the Democratic Party has ever done for you except insure you’re helpless, hopeless and dependent on government to survive. It’s time to blame the war on poverty.

It’s time for black Americans to blame black America.


Jesus Was Not a Wimp

Jesus by Akian

Jesus Was Not A Wimp

The Left loves to rewrite reinvent history, and one of their favorite targets is the historical life of Jesus.

Talk to most anyone on the Left, whether a priest, a pastor, or a civilian, and you’ll come away with the impression that Jesus was a tree-hugging, diversity-loving, promoter of tolerance for all. Nothing could be further than the truth.

“And he found in the temple them that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.

“And when he had made, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen: and the money of the changers he poured out, and the tables he overthrew.

“And to them that sold doves he said: Take these things hence, and make not the house of my Father a house of traffic.” John 2:13

Does that sound like the kind of Jesus we get from today’s watered-down Church?

Jesus was not afraid to call sin for what it is and he wasn’t above a little name-calling to make a point. Indeed, he often referred to the Leftists of his day as vipers, serpents, and hypocrites.

Jesus loved everyone, and he still does, but he also knew that to engage in homosexual acts is an abomination before God: “And whosever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgement than for that city.” Matthew 10:14

Jesus loved children, and he was adamantly pro-life. “And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me: it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were cast into the sea.” Mark 9:41

Does that leave any doubt as to the fate of eternal damnation that awaits those who support or practice abortion?

Jesus was not a vegetarian or a member of PETA. He frequently ate fish, as did all the Apostles.

Jesus was physically strong, as evidenced by his carrying of the cross. I doubt if even 5% of today’s bodybuilders and professional athletes could manage that feat.

Jesus was not a tree-hugging environmentalist. He understood that the earth is here to serve man, not the other way around. “And in the morning, returning into the city, he was hungry. And seeing a certain fig tree by the way side, he came to it and found nothing on it but leaves only. And he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig tree withered away.” Matthew 21:18

With all the evil occurring in the world today, Jesus would take one look at the Church’s preoccupation with the environment and “Global Warming” and call it for what it is: an insult to God.

In short, Jesus stood for everything that’s in stark contrast to the dictates of the Left (and the dictates of the Left just happen to be the platform of the Democratic Party).

The message we get from today’s Christian and Catholic leaders appears to be “go along to get along,” but that attitude is the exact opposite of everything that Jesus taught. If we wish to emulate Jesus, it’s necessary for us to follow the true example of his life, not the fairy tale version the Left would have us believe.

Bryan Fisher, the host of Focal Point, put it best: God has not called us to be nice. He called us to be good.


Who Really Runs the Country? A Democrat’s Wet Dream

Wayne Allyn Root on Obama’s Love for America

Wayne Allyn Root

When Rudy Guliani said he thought “Obama doesn’t love America,” it set off a media firestorm. You know, those same fine ultra-liberal Americans now running the mainstream media who, while in class with me at Columbia University, cheered the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan…and who today no doubt support students at California college campuses who voted to remove the American flag…criticized Guliani for stating the obvious.

Naturally, the media decided to play “gotcha” with GOP presidential candidates and ask them if they agree that Obama doesn’t love America. As usual, GOP candidates panicked and ran away from Guliani’s statement. Well, I have the perfect answer to that question. Scott Walker are you listening?

The answer is, “I believe Obama loves America…the same way Castro has loved Cuba for the past half century. And I believe Obama loves America the same way Hugo Chavez loved Venezuela…the same way Stalin loved Russia…the same way Ho Chi Minh loved North Vietnam…and the same way the Socialist presidents of insolvent, bankrupt EU countries like Greece, Spain and France today love their country.

I’m sure Obama loves America the same way they all loved their countries and their people. Yet they managed to destroy their countries and economies. That’s what socialism, communism, or Marxism (whatever you want to name it) does. It destroys everyone and everything it touches. Ask the people of Detroit now living in an abandoned city.

It’s not a matter of patriotism. Obama may love America. I’m sure Fidel Castro would say he’s the biggest Cuban patriot ever. Castro loves his people…and he will love Cuba until his dying breath.

Yet, look at the results. Castro’s country lies in ruins. The Cuban people own nothing, not even their own thoughts or free speech. Disagree, protest, speak out publicly and the Castro brothers send you to prison to rot or die. People living in the country that Fidel Castro loves so much have spent the last half century escaping through shark infested waters in boats made of spit, glue and rubber tires. The Cuban people were willing to die to get away from the man who loves his country to death.

In all socialist countries “The state” takes care of you. “The state” knows what’s best. “The state” tells you what to think. In each and every case, all that love (and smothering state control) ruins your life.

So, does Obama “love America”? Perhaps, but it’s clear his version of love is similar to the husband who beats his wife, all the while proclaiming “I love you honey…this is for your own good.”

That’s exactly what Scott Walker and other GOP presidential candidates need to say when the media asks “Does Obama love America?” That’s the perfect answer. Watch the media turn ash white and look sick to their stomachs.

No one can prove whether Obama loves America. But I do know he is destroying America. I do know Obama is Castro.

The people I trust who have dealt with Castro…the parents and grandparents of my friends in the Cuban community…all say Obama is Fidel Castro all over again. They’ve seen firsthand the lies, corruption, fraud, propaganda, massive taxation and regulation, the tyrant saying with such sincerity that he loves his country and is here to “save” it. They’ve heard him say that everything he does is for “the good of the people.” They recognize Castro when they see him…and Cubans who lived under Castro are certain Obama is Castro.

It’s not just Castro. Every socialist tin-pot dictator is the same. They all channel Saul Alinsky. Everything they say is the opposite of the truth. Everything they say is to deceive and distract.

Everything they do is to bribe the poor with free stuff- stolen from the middle class and business owners. The politically correct name is “income redistribution.” But it’s theft. It’s the central tenant of communism and Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.”

Rip off your opposition to make them poor and redistribute the stolen loot to the dependent poor, buying their loyalty and votes. That’s socialism… that’s Castro… and that’s Obama.

I have one more recommendation to GOP presidential candidates. When asked what you think of Guiliani’s comments, tell them you’ll answer only when they’ve asked Democrat presidential candidates if they agree with Obama’s comments that Muslim terrorists have “legitimate grievances”?

Do Democratic candidates agree with Obama that “Muslim” and “terrorist” can’t be used in the same sentence? Do they agree with his use of illegal Executive Orders to make law or his use of the IRS to destroy political opponents? Do they agree that illegal aliens given amnesty should collect up to $24,000 in income tax credits even though they paid no taxes?

Do they agree that $8 trillion in new debt added by Obama could destroy our economy and our children’s future?

Tell them you’ll answer their questions when you hear the Democrats’ answer to these.

It’s time to fight fire with fire. It’s time to stop bringing a knife to a gun fight. This is war. This is a battle for the very survival of America, American exceptionalism, small business, capitalism, free enterprise and free speech.

Sure Obama loves America, just like those communist tyrants loved their country. That is, as long as they own it…control it… and fundamentally change it. So perhaps the corrupt, Marxist, Muslim sympathizer, sociopath, tyrant in the White House loves America too. You can quote me.

It’s time to speak up now, before America is gone. It’s time to stand up to evil. It’s time to stand up to bullies. It’s time to take back America from the tyrant who loves it…to death.

“The Name Is Mohammad”

“The revolution is coming.”

Those are the words of a co-worker I’ll call Dave. It’s his way of saying hi, and today is no different. I’m sitting at a desk and he’s entered the room behind me.

“Hi, Dave,” I say, without looking up.

“The name is Mohammad,” he says.

I turn around in my chair. He’s staring down at me with a look meant to be intimidating, but I can see the slightest of smiles curling the corner of his lip.

“Hello, Mohammad,” I say. “When did you change your name?”

“Since I escaped from the economic and spiritual bondage that your people have imposed on my people.”

“Don’t look at me,” I tell him. “My ancestors fought for the Union.”

“Sh*t,” he says, drawing the word out and pulling up a chair. “I’m talking about the economic situation today. Here I am working like a dog, making a white man rich.”

“I’m working, too. Have you ever thought about starting your own business?”

“Yeah, I have,” he says, warming to the idea. “Me and Jimmy and Melvin talked about putting our chump change together and opening a dance place. Charging ten dollars to get in.”

“Did you do it?”

“Nah. These are black people, man. If some dude gets shot, or a girl gets raped in the back, or some dude on PCP comes running out of the bathroom buck naked, they’d shut us down.”

“It’s tough being a business owner.”

“Tell me about it.”

“What do you think about Obama?” I ask him.

“I have no opinion of him.”

“You don’t?”

“No. How can I have an opinion about someone who doesn’t exist. He’s the devil. He never should have been put in the White House. Damn anti-Christ. People think I’m crazy when I tell them the revolution is coming, but it’s coming. It’s coming.”
