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.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
