Part-time America: Makers
who are also Takers

Breitbart InstaBlog, by John Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/7/2014 12:12:47 PM

I thought I´d grown numb to the media´s relentless efforts to manufacture good news for Barack Obama, but the June unemployment report really takes the cake. It was almost universally reported as phenomenal good news, with caveats brusquely related 10 paragraphs into print stories, if at all. Almost 300,000 jobs created! (Snip) In reality, this was a horrific unemployment report, and there is nothing ambiguous about why. The headlines should have read "Full-time employment crash: Half a million careers disappear in June." Quite simply, and to use round numbers, we got to the headline "300k jobs created" because the economy

Comments:
Hayward tells the real truth about the horrific numbers that the MSM lied about. It´s terribly depressing to read this.

We are moving into quite a pickle. Full time industrial and white collar jobs are going away, and part time service jobs are low pay. Machines are taking over for muscle power jobs and brain power jobs. Those lacking flexibility are left out in the cold. How many can handle a spreadsheet or database?

Add in low investment yields and increased taxes and regulations, and you have today´s ´boon´. The next recession is coming. Thankyou Obama and Congress.

The only reason the unemployment rate continues to decline is because the government makes it easier to leave the work force via fraudulent claims for disability income.As the available work force number drops so does the unemployment rate.

The business press isn´t usually so cravenly pro-Obama. Not sure why I just learned about this today.

At least 42 people have been shot in Chicago since Friday afternoon, and the six who died include a three-year-old child and two teenage boys, one of them 14 and the other 16, WBBM-TV reported on Monday. The CBS station reported that the three-year-old was accidentally shot by his father; the two teenagers were shot in separate incidents by other young men, and at least one of those attacks may have been gang-related; and three adults died in shootings at different locations by assailants who fled. "Additionally, two males were fatally shot by Chicago Police during separate incidents Sunday night," WBBM reported. Both

On Fox News on Saturday, retired Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney made a startling claim while speaking to host Uma Pemmaraju about a range of topics, including the situation with ISIS. Answering Pemmaraju´s question about what he has been hearing from his contacts, McInerney suddenly warned of a potentially huge threat leading up to September 11th of this year. On the seventh of September, a major news network and a major publishing network are gonna put out a book, and it´s gonna be earth-shattering of what’s happening and what happened.

Inhale: Marijuana initiatives

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/25/2014 1:28:34 PM     Post Reply
When it comes to supporting the national push to legalize marijuana in several states, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Democratic colleagues should just inhale. It might save their jobs. Armed with powerful statistics, Brookings Institution expert John Hudak said that having pro-marijuana initiatives on the fall ballot should draw younger, passionate Democrats to the polls and help Reid keep his leadership position and the Senate in Democratic hands. “The presence of those initiatives will likely drive younger and more liberal voters to the polls,” said Hudak in his report titled “Harry Reid should love marijuana:

Mexico Has Deported 93 Percent

WASHINGTON — Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation. Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year. Those numbers stand in stark contrast to the deportation of minor immigrants from the United States: None of the more than 60,000 Central American minors detained this year have been

‘Disconnected Obama’ needs to change

Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/25/2014 12:32:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama returns to Washington on Monday after a two-week vacation that was neither restful nor productive. From the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., to the airstrikes in Iraq, the ongoing tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East, and the execution of American journalist James Foley, it’s been a tough few weeks for the country — and for its leader. Obama drew criticism from the left for not being forceful enough in speaking out on the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson and from the right over the death of Foley and the rise of the militant Islamic State.

Cornel West is a professor at Union Theological Seminary and one of my favorite public intellectuals, a man who deals in penetrating analyses of current events, expressed in a pithy and highly quotable way. (Snip)I also remember, and this is just me I’m talking about, being impressed by Barack Obama who was running for president at the time. I don’t know if you and I talked about him on that occasion. But at the time, I sometimes thought that he looked like he had what this country needed. So that’s my first question, it’s a lot of ground to cover

CHRIS WALLACE: Karl. Attorney General Holder visited Ferguson this week and very pointedly said, I understand -- not that I condone or agree with, but I understand the mistrust you have in the police department, and he talked about some cases where he had been profiled. Afterwards he met, you can see here on the screen, with Captain Ron Johnson of the state highway patrol, who is in charge of the police effort, who said that he thought that Holder and the fact that the grand jury was beginning to hear actual evidence, were the two major factors in calming

NYT Op-Ed: It´s a ´Moral Hazard´
to Call ISIS ´Evil´ or a ´Cancer´

In a Friday op-ed which appeared in the paper´s international print edition on Saturday and which can reasonably be seen as giving voice to an editorial board which wouldn´t dare put their name to it, La Salle University Political Science Professor Michael Boyle strenuously objected to recent characterizations of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). We can´t call ISIS "evil." We also shouldn´t call them a "cancer," or "savage," or "barbaric." Oh, and the fact that George W. Bush called Al Qaeda "evildoers" is why ISIS came to be, and why our problems with radical Islam are now

On Monday´s NBC Today, fill-in co-host Tamron Hall asked incoming Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd if all the criticism of President Obama´s vacation in Martha´s Vineyard amid numerous crises was "just politics as usual." Todd replied: "Yes, it´s politics as usual, but in this case, this is optics, this was stuff they should have seen coming. This is not new to them." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Todd noted "backtracking" from former Obama adviser David Axelrod: "You know what?

Rapper Common led tributes to slain Missouri teen Michael Brown at the MTV Video Music Awards last night. The star-studded audience in Los Angeles fell silent for five seconds in tribute to the 18-year-old aspiring rapper, two weeks after he was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson. A 15-second video clip set against a black-and-white image of Ferguson´s city sign was also played with a crowd in the background chanting ´hand´s up don´t shoot´ - the slogan used by protesters in the St Louis suburb. The footage included a quote from writer James Baldwin, which said: ´Not

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one.

Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan and it collapsed for no rational reason. I had been a newspaper reporter in New York but left the job to help editor Clay Felker start New York magazine. My marriage was breaking up and I was falling in love with Clay. The song that carried me through those years and all stages of my life is "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell. I first heard the song in 1968, when Judy Collins´s version was a huge radio hit.

And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter that the scores of pundits calling for action in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere were reminiscent of the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War, which Rather called a blunder of “historic proportions,” and that hawks needed to be prepared to send their own kids to battle before they so cavalierly recommend it for others. Quoth Rather: “All of these people on television, some of whom I have enormous respect for, it unsettles me to hear them say, listen, we the United States have to ‘do something’ in Ukraine, we have to

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass. Presidents talk to those that were leading at that time.” “Not comparing Marc Morial or Melanie Campbell and I

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high
