Obama’s Greatest Legacy Might Be Destroying the Media…

January 22, 2013 1 comment

Breitbart’s Big Journalism ^ | January 19, 2013 | John NoltePosted on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 3:38:10 PM by 2ndDivisionVetOn Thursday, while looking wistfully back at Obama‘s first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. In a First Read article that opened with the question,

 

“Is the nation better off than it was four years ago,” senior political director, Mark Murray, did something that neither he, nor NBC News, nor the mainstream media was willing to do during this last presidential campaign: report on Obama’s record.But there it finally was: The Truth — and from NBC News, no less.

 

Poverty’s up from 43.6 million to 46.2 million, middle class incomes are down $50k compared to $52k, the deficit’s exploded from $10 trillion to $16 trillion, food stamp recipients have skyrocketed 33.5 million to 46.6 million, unemployment hasn’t budged, and the same number of people are without health insurance today as there were in 2009.

 

Still, NBC News couldn’t even bring itself to report the most damning Obamanomics numbers: a population so despondent by a lack of jobs that enough people have dropped out to shrink the labor market to levels unseen since the 1980s. A chronic long-term unemployment problem unseen in this country since World War II.

Communist Cows (braying)

He ordered the centurion to keep Paul under guard but to give him some freedom and permit his friends to take care of his needs. Acts 24:23

 

America has become two separate countries or actually three. We have one side that wants to stay a free and open country, a second which wants to be a Soviet style communist State and the group in the middle who don’t care. Throughout history we have had two types of people, those who want to take care of themselves and those who want to be taken care of.

Those who will accept a certain amount of risk and those who won’t and these are the two groups who are fighting it out. The bad part of being in a democracy is those who want to live under state control and a Soviet style of gummit can simply vote those who do not into being their subjects.

Rush: Obama at ‘max damage potential’ right now

December 10, 2012 5 comments

……..“He’s at maximum damage potential right now, max damage. He can inflict the greatest damage possible for the purpose of transforming the country from capitalism to Western European socialism,” Limbaugh said Monday afternoon.

“He’s got two years here to double down, triple down, max out on it – and that’s if he cares about the 2014 midterms. But if you listen to Democrats talk, they don’t care about that.”

Limbaugh was commenting on Obama’s push for tax increases as Republicans continue to negotiate with the Obama administration on how to prevent plunging off the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

In 2010, Obama said taxes should not be raised, fearing it would harm the economy.

More Phony Employment Numbers ~ “The Unemployment Rate is 22.9% Paul Craig Roberts on the Establishment cover-up.”

December 10, 2012 2 comments

Statistician John Williams (shadowstats.com) calls the government’s latest jobs and unemployment reports “nonsense numbers.”

 

There are a number of ongoing problems with the released numbers. For example, the concurrent-seasonal factor adjustments are unstable. The birth-death model adds non-existent jobs each month that are then taken out in the annual downward benchmark revisions.

Williams calculates that the job overstatement through November averages 45,000 monthly. In other words, employment gains during 2012 have been overstated by about 500,000 jobs. Another problem is that each month’s jobs number is boosted by downside revision of the previous month’s jobs number.

Another problem is that each month’s jobs number is boosted by downside revision of the previous month’s jobs number. Williams reports that the 146,000 new jobs reported for November “was after a significant downside revision to October’s reporting. Net of prior-period revisions, November’s seasonally-adjusted monthly gain was 97,000.”

What Happens When Politicians Get Acting Coaches

EXCERPT!!!!!

 

…………………………………………………

 

………………………………………………………………………………..The Obama campaign ran in 2008 on slick packaging, glitzy marketing, and distraction. That worked. Four years later, American consumers have had ample opportunity to look inside the box and see what’s in it –

 

Not much.

 

In 2012, Obama and Biden cannot run on marketing. And they cannot use acting coaches to sway the “jury”; American voters are paying attention. The failures of Obama’s economic policies are everywhere we look. Economic growth is limp.

Obama to Defense Contractors: Break Law on Layoffs and We’ll Pay Fines

October 10, 2012 Leave a comment

 

Following the surprise drop in the unemployment rate last Friday, I have seen many conspiracy charges leveled against the BLS.

I do not believe any of the conspiracy charges. Had Obama instructed the BLS to juice the numbers, someone in the BLS would surely be yapping. They are not all Democrats. Many were hired under President Bush.

Is Obamacare Responsible for Surge in Part-Time Jobs?
