Obama´s Economic Growth
Record Is The Worst
In 60 Years

Investors´s Business Daily, by Jeffrey H. Anderson

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/12/2013 10:45:08 PM

0.8% — The Abysmal Rate of Economic Growth under Obama President Obama´s defense of his economic stewardship has effectively amounted to this: At least we no longer have the Bush-era economy. With an entire 4-year term in the books, it´s now possible to confirm, and to lament, the essential truth of those words. Prior to Obama, the second term of President Bush featured the weakest gains in the gross domestic product in some time, with average annual real (inflation-adjusted) GDP growth of just 1.9%. That´s according to figures from the federal government´s own Bureau of

Even if Bush´s second term growth rates were below what you really want,people still felt like they could get a damn job.The massive layoffs didn´t start until it was clear Obama was going to be president and business started bleeding employees.

Employers can´t depend on congress stopping anything because Obama will simply do a go around,so there´s no predictability for them to hire.

Regardless of how poor the economic growth figures, the narrative is all that matters. The narrative is that Obama is doing his best to prevent America from sliding deeper into recession.

With liberals, it´s always the narrative that matters most. The narrative is more important than reality.

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west.

Malaysia Airlines ´ missing jet transmitted its location repeatedly to satellites over the course of five hours after it disappeared from radar, people briefed on the matter said, as searchers zeroed in on new target areas hundreds of miles west of the plane´s original course. The satellites also received speed and altitude information about the plane from its intermittent "pings," the people said. The final ping was sent from over water, at what one of these people called a normal cruising altitude. They added that it was unclear why the pings stopped. One of the people, an industry official, said it

Obama´s Orwellian View Of Freedom
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/13/2014 8:30:54 PM     Post Reply
Liberty: President Obama wants Democrats to reclaim the word "freedom" as their own. But what he describes as freedom is little more than deeper dependence on government. Not exactly what the Founders had in mind. In a recent speech to the Democratic National Committee, the president lamented that "we´ve let the other side define the word ´freedom´ for too long." Then, as he often does, Obama set up a straw man argument, claiming to Republicans freedom means "what´s in it for me?" or "I´ve got no obligations to anybody." So what is "freedom," Mr. Obama? "Freedom," he said, "is the peace of mind

It´s a five-letter word beginning with B, and if Sheryl Sandberg and Anna Maria Chavez have their way, it will never again be used in polite company in reference to a woman, or especially a girl. The word, of course, is "bossy." Sandberg is Facebook´s chief operating officer and the founder of LeanIn.org; Chavez is CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA. In last Friday´s Wall Street Journal, they announced their campaign to eradicate the B-word, though it does appear in the URL of their website, BanBossy.org. The word "bossy," they argue, generally has a feminine connotation, and it undermines

Obamacare is definitely NOT

One of President Barack Obama’s favorite new Obamacare sign-up pitches is that young enrollees, which the law banks on for sustainability, can get health insurance for the price of a monthly cellphone bill. But in reality, premiums are more than a little pricier. “HealthCare.gov works great now,” Obama told Zack Galifianakis Tuesday in a Funny or Die “Between Two Ferns” video. “And millions of Americans have already gotten health insurance plans, and what we want is for people to know that you can get affordable health care — and most young Americans right now, they’re not covered.” “And the truth is that

White House: Sequester No Longer
Applies to Part of Obamacare
National Journal, by Sam Baker    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/13/2014 4:03:46 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration has decided that the sequester´s mandatory spending cuts no longer apply to part of Obamacare. The health care law provides subsidies to help low-income people cover some of their out-of-pocket costs. Last year, the administration said those subsidies were taking a 7 percent cut because of the sequester, which imposed across-the-board reductions in federal spending. But now, the White House has changed its mind. It removed the cost-sharing subsidies from its list of programs that are subject to the sequester, eliminating the 7 percent cut for 2015. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, which noticed the change, said the

Obamacare Mandate Delay Confusion

RUSH: There´s some real confusion over Obamacare. We talked about this a couple of days ago. I forget what our source was, but the individual mandate´s been delayed. But some news organizations just discovered that overnight, late yesterday and into today, and their source for it´s a Wall Street Journal editorial. The individual mandate has been delayed. However, there is some confusion. Even though the mandate that requires you to have health insurance has been delayed until 2016, some people say that they still plan on collecting the fines for not having insurance starting in 2015.

A British man convicted of plotting an Al-Qaeda plane bombing told a New York court yesterday about a separate 2001 plan for a Malaysian pilot to blast his way into a jet´s cockpit. Saajid Badat, who was sentenced in 2005 to 13 years in jail as a co-conspirator in a notorious December 2001 plot to bomb US airliners, has testified about the Malaysian plan before. But his description of the apparently abandoned plot has a new resonance as investigators probe the fate of a Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared on Saturday with 239 people on board.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans."

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman.

The Democratic chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee declared Wednesday that cabinet secretaries do not have to answer questions at hearings if they don’t feel like it, the latest breakdown in collegiality. In a politically-charged atmosphere during a hearing on increasing the minimum wage, HELP Committee Chairman Tom Harkin brushed aside ranking Sen. Lamar Alexander´s request for a “yes or no” answer from Labor Secretary Thomas Perez. Alexander was asking Perez if he believes that the Congressional Budget Office is qualified to judge the impact of raising the minimum wage. The CBO has said increasing the

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
