Austerity Is Not to Blame
for Tepid Job Growth

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/5/2013 7:03:20 PM

Politics: Democrats were quick to blame the anemic March jobs number on the "sequester" spending cuts. If that were the case, what explains the previous four years of lousy job growth under Obama? At 88,000, the jobs growth in March was well below expectations. And while the unemployment rate dropped, that was the result of hundreds of thousands dropping out of the labor force who as a result aren´t counted as unemployed. Democrats, of course, tried to pin the blame for this on Republicans for allegedly pushing austerity measures. White House economic adviser Alan Krueger complained

It must be nice to be in control of the government and be able to blame everything on the minority party.

Being a leftist means: never admitting you´re wrong; never saying you´re sorry; and never being punished for a myriad sins. Easy to see why they went that way... slime naturally oozes downhill.

Justice Goes After the GOP
Wall Street Journal, by Harvey Silverglate    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/30/2014 8:11:00 PM     Post Reply
Is Eric Holder´s Justice Department driven by a political agenda, or are the department´s recent prosecutorial decisions simply signs of overzealousness? The Justice Department has focused on two prominent Republicans, announcing a corruption indictment of former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell and launching an active and very public criminal investigation into the antics of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s administration. In doing so, federal prosecutors have created at least the appearance that they are targeting two men who have been touted as plausible candidates for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. A reading of the McDonnell indictment raises the obvious question of why

Why Do The Uninsured Hate ObamaCare?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article

Health Care: A new survey shows that ObamaCare is less popular with the uninsured than with the public. How is this even possible? The January Kaiser Family Foundation health tracking poll shows that just 24% of the uninsured approve of ObamaCare. That´s down from 40% the month before the reform officially launched in October, and it´s a full 10 points below the public´s overall favorable rating. Incredibly, more than twice as many uninsured say they´re worse off because of ObamaCare than say it´s helped. What´s more, just 7% of the uninsured say they tried to get coverage through an ObamaCare exchange. Nearly

Raw Deal: Obamanomics Has

Economy: The good news from Thursday´s GDP report is that growth for the second half of 2013 topped 3.5%. Hardly warp speed, but an Indy race car compared to the slow-motion rate since the recession officially ended. Even the better numbers, however, can´t mask the Obama growth deficit during this expansion. The Joint Economic Committee of Congress calculates that if the recovery over the past 4-1/2 years had been at just the normal pace of recoveries, the economy would be $1.3 trillion larger today. This is the Obama growth deficit, and it helps explain why half of Americans believe we´re still in

   

 

  


 
Immigration Reform Will
Send GOP Into Electoral Abyss
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/30/2014 7:14:57 PM     Post Reply
Immigration: Seeking Hispanic votes they´ll never get, Republicans might well ruin what could be one of their greatest electoral triumphs ever. Cheap labor now isn´t worth a permanent socialist electorate tomorrow. ´Those are my principles," Groucho Marx once said, "and if you don´t like them? Well, I have others." Business should stand for the rule of law. It should also stand for sustaining economic liberty in America´s long-term future. Both principles argue against amnesty for America´s estimated 11 million illegal aliens, which would reward them for violating the law and let them pull the U.S. electorate still further to the left. The U.S.

Hype is natural to Super Bowl and State of the Union warm-ups. But neither Super Bowl contender seeks to change the rules of the game to improve their odds. Enter Obama. With the ObamaCare albatross threatening to take Democrats down to defeat, President Obama seeks a game-changer: keeping his opposition (Congress) off the playing field so he faces no defense — checks and balances — to stop his illegal plays and unconstitutional face-masking. He´ll "go it alone," "assert a unilateral agenda," "tackle public policy issues without congressional action," screamed the headlines and the pundits before the State of the Union. Obama himself

Some of the Republican Senators who supported the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration-reform bill seem pleased with House leadership’s tone on the issue. When I asked Senator Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) what he made of the House’s progress on immigration reform, he said, “I make smiles!” “Obviously there’s a tone that’s coming out of the House that gives you a sense that there may be some progress made,” he continued, adding that he hopes “we make some progress on it this year.” And Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.), one of the original co-sponsors of the Gang of Eight bill, told me he’s

House GOP leaders on Thursday released the following one-page document outlining their “standards for immigration reform”: PREAMBLE Our nation’s immigration system is broken and our laws are not being enforced. Washington’s failure to fix them is hurting our economy and jeopardizing our national security. The overriding purpose of our immigration system is to promote and further America’s national interests and that is not the case today. The serious problems in our immigration system must be solved, and we are committed to working in a bipartisan manner to solve them. But they cannot be solved with a single, massive piece of legislation that

Immigration at the House Retreat

Here’s a quick, early read-out of the immigration discussion at the House retreat, which was still ongoing as of 20 minutes ago, from one source in the room. Boehner made a brief presentation that hewed to the principles that have been released. He gave the impression, at least to this observer, that he’s not committed. He said there’s been no decision to take anything to the floor, but he is absolutely opposed to a conference with the Senate on the Gang of Eight bill. The House members seemed to break down into roughly thirds: those who like the principles and

President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton will be the headline speakers for Senate Democrats at their retreat next week at the Washington Nationals stadium, Democratic sources said. It’s the latest effort by Clinton to help Senate Democrats as they fight to hold onto the chamber in 2014. He’s appeared in two videos for Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) in Kentucky. The former president is expected to stump for her later this year as well. Clinton has also done a fundraiser for Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas, and both he and Hillary Clinton are

Mitt Romney Is the 2016

Mitt Romney leads the Republican field among New Hampshire primary voters for 2016. Yes, you read that right. Why not make it a third run for president? That´s something that the former Republican nominee is definitely not thinking about right now. To put it in his own recent words: "Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no." But that didn´t stop the Virginia-based bipartisan policy firm Purple Strategies from adding his name to a recent survey for Granite State voters, which shows Romney in the lead with 25 percent support.

Though former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not included in a Public Policy Polling survey of potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders, she was still overwhelmingly the most liked person among Republican primary voters. According to Public Policy Polling: The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating.

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Someone you probably are not familiar with has filed a suit you probably have not heard about concerning a four-word phrase you should know about. The suit could blow to smithereens something everyone has heard altogether too much about, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hereafter, ACA). Scott Pruitt and some kindred spirits might accelerate the ACA’s collapse by blocking another of the Obama administration’s lawless uses of the Internal Revenue Service. Pruitt was elected Oklahoma’s attorney general by promising to defend states’ prerogatives against federal encroachment, and today he and some properly

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

The snow and sleet have stopped falling and traffic is slowly moving again but a storm is now brewing over who exactly is at fault for the South´s winter weather fiasco. Weatherman Al Roker and the National Weather Service hit back at politicians in the South who have pointed the finger at inaccurate forecasts as the reason why authorities were so ill-prepared for snowfall and icy conditions which led to chaos on the roads. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said on Tuesday that the storm was ´unexpected´ and ´we can´t control Mother Nature´. However NBC´s Al Roker completely rebuffed this claim on

It started out like dozens of other interviews after Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. But when NY1 reporter Mike Scotto decided to press Rep. Michael Grimm on his personal campaign finances, the Republican congressman abruptly ended the interview. “This is only about the president’s speech, thank you,” Grimm says before walking off camera. It’s certainly not the first time a politician has walked out during a live interview. But what happened next is shocking even to the most jaded observer. After Stotto returns to his report, Rep.
