I mentioned in a recent column that the news was filled with stories about the protest-turned-riot in Charlottesville, the KKK, Neo Nazis, white supremists and let’s not forget Confederate statues.
These are all WMD's- Weapons of Mass Distraction. They don’t affect the average American's life on a daily basis.
What matters are high-quality jobs, the economy, GDP (Gross Domestic Product), the health of small business (which creates most private sector jobs), and the survival of the middle class (because they buy most of what everyone is selling).
Like 63 million other Trump voters, I voted for President Trump to rescue the dying U.S. economy. To lower my taxes. To repeal the disaster known as Obamacare (aka the horribly Unaffordable Care Act). To bolster small business. These are simple things. But the media ignores them all. They want to distract you away from what matters.
A great example is “Operation Choke Point.” I’ll bet good money 99% of Americans have never heard of it. You didn’t know President Obama created it. And you didn’t know President Trump killed it only days ago.
Why didn’t this story make headlines? Why isn’t “Operation Choke Point” more important than a disturbance in Charlottesville, or the KKK, or a handful of toothless, brainless, racist Neo Nazis?
“Operation Choke Point” was another socialist scheme cooked up by Comrade Obama to make it much harder to do business in America. To damage capitalism. To “choke” the economy. To kill middle class jobs. To put obstacles and challenges in front of every private sector business owner.
And here’s the hidden goal: to starve, strangle and “choke” the life out of conservative talk radio and conservative web sites like FoxNews, DrudgeReport and Breitbart.
Can you imagine running a country just to wipe out your political opposition? To make more people dependent on government? Isn't that what socialist tin-pot dictators do? But that’s exactly what Obama did for eight years.
“Operation Choke Point” was a program dreamed up by Obama to cut off bank accounts, credit, loans and credit card merchant accounts to LEGAL businesses in America. Yes, the federal government tried to strangle and “choke” LEGAL business that Obama deemed “undesirable.” Even liberal lawyers called it a terrible violation of the United States Constitution.
After all, who but a tin pot socialist dictator, or the Big Brother “morality police” has the nerve to try to put LEGAL businesses, out of business, simply because he doesn’t approve of what they’re legally selling? Well Obama did. At least he tried.
It must have been pure coincidence the LEGAL businesses that Obama chose to “choke” out of business were all advertisers on conservative talk radio and on popular conservative web sites. The list includes gun dealers, firearm sales, ammunition sales, gold dealers, coin dealers, “get rich products” (to Obama it was a crime to teach people how to make more money), Pyramid-type sales (would that happen to be Multi Level Marketing?), lottery sales and other legal gambling-related businesses, credit repair services, payday loans, debt consolidation, surveillance equipment and telemarketing (among a dozen others).
First, they are all 100% legal businesses. Whether you like them, or not, government has no right to try to bankrupt them, or force them out of business. Unless of course, Obama thought we’d become a communist dictatorship.
Secondly, they all just happen to advertise on conservative talk radio.
Third, they all just happen to advertise on conservative web sites.
Fourth, I'm a witness they just happen to all be advertisers on my specific conservative talk radio and TV shows.
Fifth, many of these are businesses I’ve either been in, or made money off of my entire life. Coincidence? I’m the proto-typical independent small businessman who wants no help from government. I've never worked for big government, or big business in my life. I've never had a government contract. I've never accepted a government handout.
Obama’s goal was to make people like me extinct. "Operation Choke Point" was a part of the puzzle- along with high taxes, thousands of new regulations, IRS audits, Obamacare and climate change. This is how you wipe out small business, independent contractors and the middle class. By attacking the private sector.
It's no coincidence that "Operation Choke Point" went after only mom and pop business owners with 1 to 100 employees. It just so happens, none of these are industries that are built around big business, or billion dollar multi-national companies (Obama’s biggest donors and best friends in Martha's Vineyard).
Typical Obama. Obama choked the economy...
Typical Trump. Trump rides to the rescue...
Typical media. They covered it all up with fake news and WMD (Weapons of Mass Distraction).
