The mafia has nothing on Obama.

Have you seen the headlines? Obama’s IRS is ruthless. They want to know what you say in your Facebook posts, what you are thinking, what you are reading – they even want to know the content of your prayers. Amazing – even the mafia doesn’t ask these kind of personal questions.

Obama’s IRS goes after tea partiers, conservatives and groups that believe in the U.S. Constitution. Even the mafia has more respect for the Constitution than Obama’s government gang.

Obama’s IRS goes after Christian charities, Catholic professors and pro-life groups. They went after Billy Graham? Even the mafia has more respect for the church than the Obama Crime Family.

In one case the IRS offered to “end the pain” if the pro-life group agreed to stop picketing Planned Parenthood clinics. This is a level of extortion even the mafia would be impressed with.

Obama’s IRS released sensitive and confidential tax records of conservative groups to their opposition. They even appear to have released Mitt Romney’s confidential tax records to the Obama campaign. Even the mafia respects a man’s tax returns.

Obama’s IRS also targeted pro-Israel Jewish groups. Are you kidding? Even the greatest gangsters of all-time – Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegal – were always friends of Israel.

Then there’s the way the Obama Crime Family treats the taxpayers. Don Obama and his crew are very much like the mafia – except meaner. You see the mafia almost never goes after “civilians.” They only intimidate, extort and kill other mobsters or “associates” active in the criminal world. If only Obama were that discriminating!

The Obama Crime Family goes after every taxpayer in America. Obama desperately needs your money, and he’ll stop at nothing to confiscate it. Whether it’s raising income taxes, payroll taxes, Obamacare taxes, online sales taxes, taking away exemptions and deductions, he’ll find a new and creative way to extort your money.

As a bonus, since well-off taxpayers write most of the checks for Republican candidates and conservative causes, Don Obama is slowly bankrupting his political opposition. Even the Gambinos never figured out how to use the law to bankrupt the other mafia families.

And then there’s the theft on a massive scale that would make the mafia blush. My new national best-selling book, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” paints a full detailed picture of this slow-motion tragedy. Let me share a few highlights of Don Obama’s larceny in action.

Don Obama targets, hunts, demonizes, intimidates and punishes his best customers (business owners and high-income taxpayers). Even the mafia treats their best customers with respect.

But taxation is only the tip of the iceberg for the Obama Crime Family. They can rob widows and orphans blind without ever touching their bank accounts. The Obama Crime Family’s weapon of choice is the Federal Reserve. If Don Obama can’t get his hands on your money, he merely orders the Fed to print trillions in new dollars. That makes your life savings worthless. It threatens your retirement. It even threatens the financial future of your children and grandchildren (because all that debt needs to be repaid).

When it comes to jobs, Obama is the most prolific killer EVER. There are now 90 million able-bodied, working-age Americans no longer working. That’s almost one third of the country’s population. The workforce participation rate is the lowest since 1979. For men it’s the lowest since 1948. Don Obama has killed so many jobs, he should be on top of the FBI’s “Most Wanted List.”

Don Obama also kills spirit. He overwhelms business owners with so many taxes and regulations, they live in despair and depression. Obama is a ruthless enforcer – he created 6,118 new government regulations in just the first 90 days of 2013. He is snuffing out the economy like a mafia paid hit man.

 It makes you wonder who is paying Obama to cause this kind of damage.

The mafia makes much of their money from the sale of drugs. But Don Obama’s drug of choice is entitlements. He has addicted the whole country to “Obama money.” It’s just not worth it to work anymore. This Obama is very good – even the mafia could never destroy the moral fabric of the whole country.

Then there’s the intimidation against “ratings agencies.” Standard & Poor’s and then Egan-Jones downgraded the debt of America under Obama – for the first time in history. So guess what happened next? They were both indicted by the federal government.

Were these indictments a coincidence? No more than if a business owner stopped paying kickbacks to the mafia and suddenly winds up firebombed. These were messages.

Then there’s Obamacare. The IRS predicts the typical family will soon pay $20,000 per year for health care. Since no one in this Obamageddon economy has $20,000 to spare, Obama will turn us all into wards of the state, dependent on government to pay for our health care. Even the mafia was never this ruthless.

But Don Obama saves his real mafia tactics for the energy industry. He despises oil, coal, nuclear and fracking. A true Marxist, Obama wants energy bills to go through the roof so that we all need government handouts to survive. So he uses every trick in his book to destroy the energy producers – from EPA regulations to executive orders.

Heck, Don Obama is so ruthless, he even bugs his friends in the media. He looks at the emails of the moms and dads of the media. He names journalists as “conspirators” for just doing their jobs.

With the Obama Crime Family breathing down our necks, it’s lucky the honest citizens have the Second Amendment to protect us. Oh, right. Obama wants to disarm us. Even the mafia can’t use the power of government to disarm its victims. Brilliant. This Obama Crime Family is in a league of their own.

My apologies for insulting the Gambinos by comparison.
