White House Blames Jobs
Numbers on Sequester

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 4/5/2013 8:02:58 PM

The Obama White House is scrambling to blame Friday’s abysmal March jobs numbers on the sequester’s trimming of the rate of growth in federal budgets that have yet to fully commence. After the Labor Department announced that a mass exodus of 663,000 workers left the U.S. workforce last month and that job creation fell 112,000 jobs short of projections, Obama’s top economic adviser Alan B. Krueger, took to the White House blog to blame the sequester: It is important to bear in mind that the March household and payroll surveys are the first monthly surveys to look

This explanation is for the 47%ers.

The sequester has not been fully implemented yet, and, in addition, let´s not forget ---- it is a reduction in the INCREASE of federal spending, not actual cutting!

0bama always blames everyone else. The jobs numbers are bad because of all of 0bama´s failed policies, his massive government regulation, the massive tax hike he just implemented, his 0bamacare huge tax hike, and his printing of 85 Billion dollars a month that has caused everything to cost a whole lot more. Companies are hiring less because 0bama´s policies are just horrid for business. We just decided to close our doors; plain and simple, as we could no longer afford to pay our employees.

The bHo has done everything possible to harm small business. It took bHo´s administration 4 years to admit that small business accounts for more jobs than any other employer classification yet he continues to damage them. Everything coming out of this despicable administration is a lie or a bogus excuse.

The blame chain:

Not Enough Socialism
George W. Bush
Global Warming
Racism
Incivility
The Tea Party (and/or Sarah Palin)
Sexism
Homophobia, Islamophobia
The 1%
Reaganomics
Not Enough Socialism

You cannot be a true Democrat unless you learn to always blame others for every bad thing you intentionally caused.

Want to see some sad job numbers, wait for obummercare to get rolling. Medical personnel are closing offices and going into research. Small business owners are cutting all back to part-time hours and no medical coverage.Soon those part-time folks will be gone. Grocery stores get more automated each day, and this is just the start.Jobless will go up exponentially in the next 90 days.

This is laughable:

>The administration continues to urge Congress to replace the sequester with balanced deficit reduction, while working to put in place measures to put more Americans back to work like rebuilding our roads and bridges and promoting American manufacturing.

Excuse me but "The President proposes, Congress disposes?" Have I got that wrong? While the Constitution gives the president power to influence Congress in its lawmaking, this POTUS seems to think he has no role whatsoever in lawmaking. He´s dumped his own detritus in Congress´ lap and told them to clean it up as though he has nothing to do with it

When my liberal colleagues complain about Republicans causing all of the harm, I ask them to name a single Obama plan to get the economy going. That shuts them every time. BO has zero goals for the economy and zero plans to get there.

I swear I want to know where I can go to sue someone for the load of bricks I was sold as a sorry excuse for an elementary education. I went through an excellent suburban public school system in the 1950´s-60´s and I promise you: we were taught, plain and simple, that FDR saved this nation from destruction at the hands of the oil and railroad barons, and the Great Depression was the fault of Herbert Hoover. Everyone believed it. And here we are again! I could just spit nails.

The sequester can only affect government jobs, which aren´t real jobs, so please try another explanation, zippy. This lie is just too obvious, even to the dullards who voted for you.

And by the way, spending another 3 trillion now while cutting a trillion over the next 10 years is NOT a balanced budget. It´s also another lie because the cuts will never be made.

#7 right on!
The word ´sequester´, the latest meme from the left, is the club used to beat the post turtle Republicans over the head with.
Republicans will be destroyed by Obama and they sit there and take it. The Republican party is almost finished and illegal amnesty will be the final blow to them with the gaggle of 8.
The undocument democrat voters (illegals) will never vote Republican so why go along with the left?

The Blamer in Chief is right on schedule.

Jobs, North Korea, foreclosures, crime, hurricanes, snow in March is all due to the sequester since most Americans are so utterly stupid, they now can´t understand how a plant could be blamed for anything but definitely would if they could understand anything beyond "tingle up my leg" from the Chris Matthews and Jon Stewart news providers (and I´m not being sarcastic). The 51 percent believes it and that´s all that matters. That´s why Hillary and Michelle will be elected in 2016, guaranteed.

How do the job numbers, the national unemployment rate, and the numbers of Americans who have simply stopped looking for work square with the liberal Democrat, and some cheap labor Republican, plans to authorize through immigration reform the mass importation in the years ahead of almost a half million low-skilled and low-wage earning foreign "guest" workers and AGJOBS workers each year on into the future, which would essentially be legalizing most prospective future illegal immigration by providing hundreds of thousands of would be illegal aliens an easy way to come into the USA to work.

Unlike past "guest" worker authorizations that were temporary in nature and required the "guest" workers to leave after their allotted time periods, this new so called "guest" worker plan allows the "guest" workers to stay, become permanent residents, bring their foreign families here, and eventually be given US voting rights. No doubt over the years, if those plans become law, the Democrats will garner millions of new foreign born voters as a result of allowing that many poor, generally uneducated, and low wage earning aliens into the USA.

If it´s in print, it must be true. Face it, the Sequester will be blamed on Republicans because the press are like ancient Gods. They walk among us and are aligned with the Democrats. i.e. they help them to defeat their enemies. In the end the Sequester will mean what the press says it means and no one who is not paying attention will be the wiser.

USAID documents cite Hillary
Clinton in chaos of Afghan aid
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
