North Carolina loses or gains jobs in June depending on which state numbers you believe if any, July 20, 2012, Greensboro News Record Doug Clark

“The United States economy has lost more jobs than it has added since the recovery began over a year ago.”…NY Times Sept. 20, 2010.

“Guilford (Large NC County) appears on it’s way to a third consecutive year with annual jobless rates in double digits. Economists say that likely hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.”…Greensboro News Record December 2, 2011

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

From Doug Clark of the Greensboro News Record July 20, 2012.

“North Carolina loses or gains jobs in June, depending on which state numbers you believe, if any”

“North Carolina lost nearly 8,000 jobs in June from the previous month, the state’s Commerce Department reports this morning.”

“The unemployment rate held at 9.4 percent, but that was because the labor force decreased.

These are “smoothed” seasonally adjusted numbers.

The picture is more positive year over year, according to the Commerce news release:

“Since June 2011, Total Nonfarm jobs gained 37,000 with the Service Providing sector increasing by 38,600 and the Goods Producing sector decreasing by 1,600. The largest over-the-year increase of major industries was in Government at 13,000, followed by Education & Health Services, 12,100 and Trade, Transportation and Utilities, 9,400.”

In case you missed it, the largest increase in employment was in government … Contrary to claims of public payroll slashing.

Unfortunately, a gain of 37,000 jobs in the past year is anemic. And now we’re slipping. Obviously, this is not an encouraging report for our state.

Note: There are two sets of numbers in the report. You will see some media reports stating the state gained 16,690 jobs in June.

The news release contains these statements:

“Seasonally adjusted Total Nonfarm industry employment, as gathered through the monthly establishment survey, increased by 16,900 to 3,963,100 in June.”

And:

“The number of people employed (smoothed seasonally adjusted) decreased by 7,909 to 4,216,644 over the month …”

Here’s a BLS explanation (sort of) of smoothing. Obviously, this statistical maneuvering makes a significant difference. In the state’s numbers, we either have fewer people working but are gaining jobs, or have more people working but are losing jobs.

Please weigh in on the credibility of these numbers.

Addendum: Please see economist Dave Ribar’s helpful explanation in the comments below.”

  1. As I said in the last article CW posted, the Colorado shooter was “just acting out” in reality what the viewers were watching on the silver screen. This article was posted on a national news service just now.
    —————————————–
    The man in custody for allegedly killing 12 people at the screening of the latest Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado told authorities after the shooting that he “was The Joker,” NYPD police commissioner Ray Kelly said today.

    Kelly told reporters the suspect, identified by federal officials as 24-year-old James Holmes, had dyed his hair like The Joker. The Joker is a well-known villain in the fictional Batman universe. The attack took place at a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” the final movie in a Batman trilogy, following “The Dark Knight” in which The Joker was the principal villain.

    So can we now blame the film makers for this tragedy? Or do we just blame the JOKER?

  2. I found this. Can’t verify the validity!

  3. HONOR FIRST….thanks for the Blaze article reference c-span hearing

    It did my poor heart good to see the gentleman from Texas HAVE Janet Napolitano for lunch.

    When he finished with her fat A$$, she must have wighted about 20 pounds less. I have never witnessed such a butt chewing since I left the Army.

    Bet she went crying back to her boss and ask for a hit on “the gentleman from Texas”.

    Thanks again!

  4. THANKS AGAIN HONOR FIRST FOR THE ARTICLE ON JAMES HOLMES

    I strongly suspected it would be something like this……now lets see how the radical left, obama supporting, tree hugging left-wing feces will spend these facts !

    Good find…hope it gets traction and really goes veral..
    .We are now learning as a nation that “We are reaping what Obama has sown”.

    God help us if we can’t rid ourselves of this plague in November.

  5. RMC.. You are certainly welcome. That entire cspan hearing was very informative…if you have the time its well worth watching. Many areas of National Security were addressed.

    Also again, on that James Holmes article..I can’t verify if that is true, but I have found several comments relating Holmes to the Occupy Group, the Black Bloc. Very disturbing to say the least.

    Here is the link for the congressional hearing:

  6. I think this guy is going to come out as an activist in the Occupy movement. I heard on Mike Rosen that they have picutures of him there. This isn’t confirmed, but you can practically see it in the faces of the news media on MSNBC that they know more than they are telling right now.

    Our attitude to violence is beyond a joke as new Batman film, The Dark Knight, shows
    The new Batman film reaches new levels of brutality, so why are we letting children watch it? Jenny McCartney looks at a society seduced by sadism.

    ——————————————–
    carry over comment:

    Frankly, beyond the shock at parents who would take or permit their children to attend garbage “movies” in this genre, I myself am at a loss as to comprehend why ANYONE is drawn to this junk. People, esp. in the last few decades, appear not to have a clue about the effect upon themselves that such horrific types of stimulation have. Invite it under the human roof and you’ve invited your own soul’s demise. And yes, some are more susceptible than others, but everyone is effected in some way. That’s for sure.

    Look at this specimen of so called “brilliance” of our day….this so well equipped shooter, a young man, graduated with highest honors in a very rigorous disciplinary subject….who chooses to use this “developed” intelligence, in the end, to “play” the “joker” to Batman!!! It’s not just that it’s sick, but it, violent cartoon characters?, reflects a stilted emotional/spiritual maturity fostered as somehow “cute” by our immature culture. Just look at all the sold out theaters to watch such visual expressions of horror. Read the descriptions of any of the scenes in the movie? Pushing the edge they used to say….well, there doesn’t seem to even be an edge any longer. It just seems that there is some accepted basic level of existence now….sorta a survival outlook. People just don’t seem to be able to say NO! We now have “stepped up security” at our movie theaters….for what?…..entertainment for the common man?

    Our current culture, esp. reflected by our so called educators, refuses to place any kind of ethical perimeters….esp. on the youth, but also on the examples of so called adults surrounding them. What is it with people today who actually believe they need to take greater and greater acts of revenge against someone or something they feel has not danced to their personal tunes? Remind you of anyone in particular?

    We have more psychiatric “experts” today than ever in our human history and yet there are more impossible to understand, except by labels, actions taken by human beings with the same gift of free will as those of the past. One “expert” just gave the excuse of the possibility of such a guy, “high functioning”, with a normal childhood, who just suddenly may have a psychotic break with reality. I haven’t heard anyone interviewing those who were in the audience….like even “pastors”…..”why do you come to see stuff like this”??

    Instead how about a time where the evil one/s are more aggressive than ever before because their time is now short. And yet at such a time people open themselves even more to such evil by participating in the very seductions offered. Perhaps that’s why the natural disasters are forcing people to deal with reality and sever them from the sickness of a humanly created culture without God.

    Hey All,

    Let me state this:

    I got home at about 4:40am and when I turned on the TV this Colorado story was just breaking.

    It is 5:04pm right now and the “news” channels are STILL on this story. 12 and 1/2 hours and all that’s been on FOX has been this shooting.

    In my opinion, what the exclusive coverage does is ENCOURAGE more of this type of behavior. It’s like we have to stop everything we are doing to watch this story evolve.

    If you remember after the Columbine shootings, there were 4 or 5 more shootings at schools around the Country.

    There’s more happening in the World than this tragedy.

    And it IS a tragedy, but it’s NOT the end of the world.

  9. IB…I said in a previous blog that the only winners in this Colorado tragedy was the MEDIA

    From your above comments this is playing out as I predicted.

    It will be the ONLY news for 3 or 4 weeks until they bleed every ounce possible out of the story. Then it will be discarded and forgotten…

    All this reminds me of the award winning movie “NETWOEK”. In that movie, the media cooked up a polt to assassinate the announcer on live TV for the ratings it would get….remember that movie?

    Have we evolved to that stage?

  10. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    I guess one issue that needs to be addressed is who else knew this was going to happen and WHY didn’t they come forward to stop this from happening?

    It is difficult for me to believe that with all of the ammo and explosive devices that was supporsedly found in this man’s apartment, SOMEONE didn’t know that something was going to happen.

    But if it would have been stopped before it happened, I guess the “news” wouldn’t be 12 dead and 71 injured.

    I would also like to state that with all of these rounds being fired, there HAD to be times when the man was reloading, and everyone was cowering, waiting for the shooting to continue.

    I don’t understand why EVERYONE didn’t rush this man, and stop him from shooting until he was tired of shooting. Oh he would have shot some of those rushing him, but I believe the tragedy would have been LESS, if people would have taken JUSTICE in to their own hands.

    I know I am “armchair quarterbacking”, but I believe that if the public would stand up for themselves, this stuff wouldn’t happen as often.

    NOW he is in custody, it will probably be a couple of years before he comes to trial, and he’ll most likely get off for some mental disorder.

  11. IB, I agree about the media blitz.

    The real problem is that there are so many sick souls out there who see this as a way to get attention. That is why there are often copycat killings. They love the publicity in their warped minds.

    This IS a tragedy, but somehow when the news media gets off balance and fails to report news that it doesn’t like, it has to grab onto something as though clinging to a life raft out in the ocean…..anything to fill up 24/7.

    IRS, Labor Department persecute Idaho man who was named to Obama’s enemies list[/color][/URL]

    On April 20, President Obama’s campaign named VanderSloot to the first presidential “enemies list” since the Nixon era. Eight private citizens were singled out for their donations to Romney. They committed no crimes, sought no attention, and yet they became the subject of Obama’s scorn.

    VanderSloot is now facing persecution from the federal government. Kimberly Strassel reveals in today’s Wall Street Journal that two federal agencies — the Internal Revenue Service and Labor Department — both launched investigations of VanderSloot after his name appeared on Obama’s enemies list.

  13. We live in a very sick society with very sick and violent movies.

  14. I heard Obama and I heard Romney speak about our shooting today. Romney had a comforting sound to his voice and message and Obama mouthed his shtick. Just for today – I support a moratoreum on gun control speak. Keep that friggin’ Carney and Bloomberg muzzled for just ONE day. My daughter knew two of the victims.

  15. Cabby…

    .sorry to hear about your mother…I hope and pray she will recover quickly.

  16. The sad thing is that the liberal media goes crazy when one person kills twelve folks. That is a tradegy. But in Chicago, 49 people get killed in one weekend, and the liberal media says almost nothing when it is black on black violence.

  17. Tina | July 20, 2012 at 8:00 pm |

    Hi Tina,

    Agreed! All these psychos need is a little push to act out their warped fantasies.

    I will go to see a movie as soon as Hollywood stops putting out crap and starts producing decent movies. …And they say that violent movies and video games have no influence on people, especially the youth. Ya, right…

    Question: How does an unemployed medical student afford $20,000 in weapons gear?

    If you start to look at the really big picture here, the obvious question arises: How does an unemployed medical student afford all the complex weapons gear, bomb-making gear, “flammable” booby trap devices, ammunition, multiple magazines, bullet-proof vest, groin protection, ballistic helmet, SWAT uniform and all the rest of it?

    Holmes was clearly provided with exotic gear

  22. While the liberals shamelessly try to make political points from this tradegy, we need to look at better solutions to these terrible events. The solution is not gun control. The shooter could have easily thrown a bomb in the theater or driven a car through a crowd. We need to better educate, recognize and treat mental illness or drug abuse. Hospitals all advertise the signs of a heart attack or stroke, but there is very little about mental or drug abuse.

    Very interesting article and also plausible considering the July 27th signing of the Small Arms Treaty.

    The listing of millions who have been killed by rogue regimes reminds me of something the late Dr. Fred Schwartz used to say concerning numbers.
    You could say it like this in thinking about those senselessly killed in CO:
    The killing of twelve or more is a TRAGEDY; while the killing of millions is a STATISTIC. Our minds simply cannot grasp the latter.

  26. Colorado Theater Called Gun-Free Zone

    Lawmaker asks, “Was there nobody that was carrying a gun that could’ve stopped this guy?”

    Gun advocates say the movie theater where a Colorado gunman opened fire Friday, killing 12 and wounded 58, has a strict policy against firearms on its premises – even for patrons have concealed handgun permits.

  38. Just received this email from a friend. Long but very worth reading:

    A CUBAN BOY

    BOY:
    When I was about 9 years old I remember asking my dad about Castro.
    I asked, “Is Castro a good guy or bad?”

    Dad said he couldn’t tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana at the time. Dad was in the Army and stationed there.

    Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.

    This past July 4th, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.

    This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960’s. His family was more fortunate than most, as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro’s newly formed revolutionary paradise.

    Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, fresh ears of sweet corn and watermelon. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide…while celebrating the birth of our beloved America …on the Fourth of July.

    We began with a simple discussion about our country, and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington .

    But then he said it. The sentence flowed naturally from our refugee guest. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train.

    “You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist”.

    We sat stunned. He continued, “Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn’t sound like a radical.”

    The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, “You mean just like Barack Obama?”

    He responded; “Yes, just like Barack Obama.” He continued, “We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied.”

    I also remember my uncle saying; Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries. He will never come and take our family hardware store!! But that is exactly what happened. Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that four-bedroom home you own…it is now our property too. You have to move yourself and the five children into those two rooms of the house, because others are moving in here with you.”

    The lesson learned from this discussion, is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office, they can take totally unexpected turns.

    If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors or Chrysler would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society…would be evaporating, just like it did in Castro’s Cuba in the early 1960’s.

    But the news of injustice keeps increasing;
    Black Panthers are not charged with wrong doing by the U.S. Department of Justice…because their crimes are against whites;
    The bond holders of GM are stripped of their assets…without being given due process by the government;
    Car Dealerships are closed with out due process;
    Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight…only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled…by the Attorney General;
    The U.S. borders are over run with crime and illegal activity, and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers…while the innocent are killed and over run;
    When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed…and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.

    Without the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution is a sham!! Without the rule of law, our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As an author recently and so eloquently explained in her most recent book…”a culture of corruption has replaced honest government” (Michelle Malkin).

    The only way this problem will be fixed, is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally, must come together…and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law…end now!! And yes, it can happen if we all pull together.

    PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!
    And…may God save the United States of America ! *

    *…the very least you can do is forward this email. 6 million plus Jews didn’t believe it could happen in Germany either!!! If you’re a Christian in these United States of America , you’re probably next on the list. History bares that out.

    The real problem here is, the boy from Cuba did manage to make it to the U.S. Today he and we will not have any place to escape to…except death!

    And, for the most part…even though I’m forwarding this to you, probably less then 10 will even read it completely, let alone forward on to others.

    AS A COUNTRY, HAVE WE BECOME THIS COMPLACENT? WILL YOU JUST TURN YOUR BACK AND LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES? I HOPE NOT…

    YOU KNOW I DIDN’T, BECAUSE YOUR READING THIS, AND NOW I HOPE AND PRAY YOU DO FORWARD

    Obama marks Ramadan

    http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/07/obama-marks-ramadan-129636.html

    In a statement, President Obama commemorated the Muslim holiday of Ramadan — calling it a time to “cherish family, friends, and neighbors, and to help those in need.”

    “On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world at the start of Ramadan,” Obama said.

    Obama also took the opportunity to tie in the struggles of people across the Muslim world engaged in ongoing fighting related to the Arab spring uprisings that began in 2011.

    “This year, Ramadan holds special meaning for those citizens in the Middle East and North Africa who are courageously achieving democracy and self-determination and for those who are still struggling to achieve their universal rights. The United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely.

    Yes, let all the women rejoice in their futures under strict Sharia Law!

  42. An email I received this morning.
    **********************************
    Snopes verifies that the things stated herein are true except that the author wasn’t a classmate but rather a fellow student at Columbia University with Barrack Obama.

    Be sure and read all of this including the Snopes statement. It’s right-on but unfortunately devastating for all of us!

    Finally, An Obama classmate speaks out

    Yes, Wayne Allyn Root’s statement below has been “Correctly Attributed.” The link to Snopes.com is at the end of his statement. If Obama is re-elected in 2012, the US is finished. The following is in simple language that everyone can understand. Not the gibberish that our government keeps telling people. Please read this carefully and make sure you keep this message going. This needs to be emailed to everyone in the USA… OBAMA’S COLLEGE

    CLASSMATE SPEAKS OUT By Wayne Allyn Root
    Barack Hussein Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. Economy to create systemic
    Failure, economic crisis and social chaos – thereby destroying
    Capitalism and our country from within. Barack Hussein Obama was my college classmate. (Columbia University, class of ’83). He is a devout Muslim; do not be fooled. Look at His Czars… Anti-business…anti-American. As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University … They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival… And can be counted on to always vote for even bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it. Universal health care! The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health Care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will Join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression? Cap and Trade! Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, Cap and Trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with Redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal
    payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama “spread the wealth around.” Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who’s asking for a 51st state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers! But this has been Barack Hussien Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressmen and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government. (This will tip the balance of those living off the government to
    More than those who must pay for it; and we’re done for) Legalize 12 million illegal Mexican immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care
    Alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can
    Be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps,
    Free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security… (see note above re: Puerto Rico) Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America … The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means. Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income,
    punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition. With the acts outlined above, Barack Hussein Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system. Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme – all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Hussein Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan… http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/overwhelm.asp
    Last point: think about what this designed “rule of the rabble” will do to anyone successful…and everyone receiving this is. What will your lives be like under communism? The time to fight this abomination is now… I hope each of you will forward to at least a dozen people.

    AND this:
    An extremely important movie is coming this summer – – It is called simply “2016”.
    The speaker here is Dinesh D’Souza, college president in New York and author of many New York Times best sellers. The movie is from Gerald R. Molen, producer of Academy Award winning Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, Brave Heart.
    It explains in plain language who Barack Obama really is, what he stands for, and the dangers of him being reelected for another four years.

    Watch this short informative video preview of this movie which came out only yesterday and share it with others.

  43. Another gross out:

    Report downplays Islamic role in Fort Hood jihadi attack

    No government officials should be penalized for their inaction while they watched an online al-Qaida organizer persuade U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to murder twelve of his fellow soldiers at Foot Hood in 2009, says the final report of an independent panel.

    “Although we are critical of certain actions and omissions, we do not regard any of those actions to be misconduct that would warrant administrative or disciplinary action,” said the third-last paragraph on the 150-page report, titled “Final Report of the William H. Webster Commission.”

  44. I am PROUD to say that I have never in my entire life been drawn to such BULLSHi# as the Batman, movies or their counterpart the alleged COMIC BOOKS. My money came a little to hard to squander it away on fantasy.To me the Batman,Superman,and all the others are ALL a PSYCHOTIC FANTASYLAND which most of us know does not exist in the REAL WORLD. This has indeed become a problem in our alleged culture insofar that fewer, and fewer people can recognise the difference between REALITY, and FANTASY. As a result many people simply resign themselves to their little fantasy worlds,which results in people like Soetoro being elected to the highest office in our land………..and he too is ONE of the FANTASYLAND members.

  45. The last movie that I went to see was Steven Speilberg’s “ET”. While I enjoyed it for it’s special effects ,and all it was still FANTASY, and that was the notion which I had in mind as I entered the movie theater. It became one of Speilberg’s greatest films. He and Roddenbery were two peas in the same pod. Both living the same fantasies.

  46. Observer……….
    While I do not know your gender,it is possible that what I am about to say might offend you……believe me I intend NO OFFENSE. It has long been my observations that it is LARGELY the YOUNG FEMALE voting block which has been taken in by Soetoro’s bullshi#. I watched a few of his TELEVISED campaign speeches,and whenever the camera operator panned the camera there I would see 5′ wide black females looking toward the sky with tears streaming down their faces, their arms outstretched toward the sky, and chanting “THE MESSIAH HAS ARRIVED…THE MESSIAH HAS ARRIVED, OVER AND OVER,AND OTHERS HOLDING BANNERS SAYING THINGS LIKE “THE MESSIAH” ETC. THE YOUNG FEMALE VOTING BLOCK IS A LARGE ONE,AND IT EXTENDS ACROSS MANY ETHNIC BLOCKS AS WELL. That said it is not difficult to see which sector of our voters did the most for Soetoro. I do not hold it against these voters, but hopefully he will not fool them THIS TIME AROUND. If they are fooled again then I would say “SHAME on them.”

  47. James Holmes has been confirmed to be a “Black Block Member”. Black Block Members are government agents who work in synch with Cointelpro. They are there under the guise being of anti-establishment, yet their main objective is to push the agenda of the elites.

    Because of this shooting, GUN CONTROL will be strongly pushed, allowing the elites to implement their police state with less headaches. DON’T BUY INTO THIS

  48. things that make u go hummm?

  49. CW, unemployment in NV reported to be 11.6 %.

  50. citizenwells

    bob, yes I know.

  51. Bob Strauss……………
    Here is a little morsel which might lend a little more weight to what Alyn Root had to say, and I reiterate…… Why do you suppose there were so many people in East Germany who were willing to take a chance on being shot to death in attempting to escape from East Germany? Apparently there was a REAL REASON. Could it be that they had watched West Germany progress from a BOMBED out pile of debris to a NEW GERMANY which was gaining strength by leaps and bounds,and is a free state. People who wanted to create their own businesses,and earn a decent living. It sure was NOT GOING TO HAPPEN in East Germany. You don’t need to look very deep at the Marxist Socialist BULLSHI#, because THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IT IS. People who believe there will be a FREE UTOPIA are themselves WEAK MINDED, because no such thing EXISTS on EARTH,and NEVER WILL, because UP IS NOT DOWN, but all of the WEAK MINDED OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS would have EVERYBODY believe just the opposite. Of course if you HAVN’T THE MENTAL CAPABILITY TO RECOGNISE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UP AND DOWN THEN IT IS PROBABLE THAT YOU WILL WALLOW IN SQUALOR FOR THE BALANCE OF YOUR LIFE.

  52. Truthbetold11
    I concurr. This is not really difficult to see,or understand. I also believe that this was the case when GABBY was shot. The sheer insanity of thes acts lend a greater credence to a probable UNDERLYING conspiracy. One doesn’t need a PHD to see that there is a probable interconnection with the ONGOING Soetoro BULLSHI#.

  53. Mr. Wells,

    I noticed videos aren’t posting here as enabled, and only a link shows up for YouTube videos. Do you know how this is happening today? Thank you.

  54. OLD SALT…..

    Your comments about East Germany are absolutely correct.

    I was stationed with the 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry of the Berlin Brigade in 1972. The Wall was still in place and Russian soldiers guarded the points of entery and exits in and out of East Germany and Berlin.

    I would often cross into East Berlin at Checkpoint Charlie, sometimes on business. Each time I left the American zone at CP Charlie, I would acquire a tail who followed me wherever I went in the East.

    You really did not need a map to tell where you that you crossed into East Berlin. There were still many bombed out buildings, few cars on the road, and those that were were old Soviet makes. Very few shops whith little to sale.

    There was a marked difference in the people too. Most people in East Berlin dressed in black or drab colors. Seldom did I encounter a smile on any faces.People seemed to be very suspect of everyone that didn’t look or act as they did.

    East Berlin compared to West Berlin in 1972, was like comparing night with day.

    I will never forget my tour of duty in that city.The relationships I made with my English and French counterparts was in itself a learning experience. The English appeared to be amused with almost everything. The French were obnoxious and rude. My relations with the Brits were tolerable,, but very strained with French. to date, I have no use for the French.

    But my greatest surprise was when the wall came down years later. I never, expected, in my wildest dream, to see the wall come down with see the wall come down without firing a shot.

    Then, when communism supposedly fell completely, that was a real shocker. As far as I’m concerned, it never fell, they just changed faces and took on a new MO (method of operation).

    We all know now that Communism is very alive and right here in the good old USofA and their goal is the total destruction the of American way of life. The current rPresident is seeing to that mission with his fundamental CHANGE and HOPEY crap.

    If Soetero (aka Obama) isn’t a dyed in the wool Communist, there isn’t a cow in Texas…..and Texas is full of those creatures just as Washington is now full of Communist.

    But , you were right on target about East Berlin and East Germany.

    Excerpt.

    Soetoro’s 2012 election contingency
    Author
    – Doug Hagmann
    *******************

    “We’re talking about something taking place to make sure that Obama stays in office. I’ve been privy to ‘contingency plans’ ordered by Jarrett for one that defines the protocol for DHS response to the ‘temporary suspension of U.S. elections due to international and domestic crisis.’ It’s a real document, ordered by Jarrett and contains plans for travel restrictions, gun possession ban by citizens, and in general, ‘martial law.’”
    “You know, I heard rumors about the same thing under Bush and laughed, calling it conspiracy nonsense. Now I’m not so sure, and think that maybe it was just too early and the wrong person. Anyway, I’m not laughing anymore.”
    “Also, there are some mid-level people beginning to question the orders they are receiving. There’s a lot of talk, questions being asked now by a few people in key DHS positions about what is taking place, and that’s making Napolitano and the White House very nervous. Anyone who questions the ‘militarization’ going on is either transferred out or given [expletive deleted] assignments.”
