“With a 63.7% labor force participation, “conditions in the labor market are considerably worse than indicated” in July’s report”…economist Joshua Shapiro, WSJ August 3, 2012

“Although fewer people are unemployed now than a year ago, they are not migrating to full-time jobs for an employer. In fact, fewer Americans are working full-time for an employer than were doing so a year ago, and more Americans are working part time. Although part-time work is clearly better than no work at all, these are not the types of good jobs that millions of Americans are still searching for.”Gallup March 7, 2013

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″

From the BLS, Bureau of Labor Statistics, March 22, 2013.

“Mass Layoffs Data Discontinued |

On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across-the-board spending cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. Under the order, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) must cut its current budget by more than $30 million, 5 percent of the current 2013 appropriation, by September 30, 2013. In order to help achieve these savings and protect core programs, the BLS will eliminate two programs, including Mass Layoff Statistics, and all “measuring green jobs” products. The final release of Mass Layoffs Statistics data will occur on June 21st, with publication of the May 2013 data.”


Employers took 1,422 mass layoff actions in February involving 135,468 workers as measured by new filings for unemployment insurance benefits during the month, the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. (Data are seasonally adjusted.) Each mass layoff involved at least 50 workers from a single employer. Mass layoff events increased by 94 from January, and the number of associated initial claims increased by 1,442. In
February, 295 mass layoff events were reported in the manufacturing sector resulting in 39,407 initial claims. Monthly mass layoff data are identified using administrative data sources without regard to layoff duration."

  2. SSA Crashed: Obama Used Another Social Security Number Assigned To Dead Woman

  3. Morning CW and all. I just came across the fact that Kerry’s son-in-law is Iranian-American with extended family in Iran. There seems to be quite a strong Iran connection for Obama:

    Biden has a strong connection to the Iranian lobby, having received large donations from that organization.

    Hagel voted against sanctions against Iran.

    Kerry has an Iranian extended family.

    Valerie Jarrett is Iranian born, featured at one Iranian website as “Iranian of the Day.”

    “Obama” in Farsi means, “He is with us.” Iranians in Tehran danced in the streets when he was elected, calling him “brother.”

    So, what are we to make of this?

  4. “Kerry’s personal Iran tie subjects family to blackmail”

    “(DAILYCALLER) — In a greeting to the Iranian people on the occasion of the traditional New Year (Nowruz) holiday last week, Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.”

  8. A little aside….from my every day life….I ordered pizza from Pizza Hut for tonight’s dinner. There was a huge sign saying that they comply with E-Verify. When I picked up the pizza, I said to the manager, “Do you realize that Barack Obama cannot pass E-Verify?” He said he had no idea. He seemed to indicate that he would look in to it further. But who knows….maybe he will, maybe not. It can’t hurt to try. The point is…TRY!

  9. ………So Obama could’t get a job at Pizza Hut………yet he resides in the White House……….amazing……..simply amazing.

    “Allen West Won’t Help Expose Obama’s Ineligibility”

    “The next day, Lt. Zullo was able to find Col. West in the crowd. Lt. Zullo asked Col. West to give him five minutes of his time. Col. West gave it to him. Lt. Zullo told him of the 100% solid evidence he had of a forged and fabricated document and the legal ramifications and possible national security issues of the matter. The bottom line of that conversation was that West told Lt. Zullo (after hearing and acknowledging the evidence of the case) that he couldn’t get involved in it because he might have future political aspirations – he couldn’t afford to be associated with the case. Lt. Zullo assured him this was NOT a birther issue – this was a proven criminal forgery and fabrication of identifying document issue. He assured Col. West that he would be backed up by a full and professional criminal investigation. Lt. Zullo asked Col. West if he could at least help us to open other doors with other VIPS. Col. West reaffirmed that he had no interest in helping us.”

    “HYPOCRISY UPDATE! – In light of the above post – check out the below plea for funds on the Allen West website. Unbelievable! See our highlights in bold – especially.”
    “Allen West Guardian Fund

    Dear Fellow Patriot,

    Here in the South, we call leading from behind following. And
    that’s why we’ve launched the Allen West Guardian Fund – to elect
    principled leaders who will guard our constitutional Republic and
    fight for our conservative values. We can’t afford any more
    politicians who bow to foreign leaders and place political
    expediency ahead of their country.

    Steadfast and loyal,

    Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)”

  13. Just another thing before I go…..Anyone who listens to Rush has certainly heard the PSA Ads that describe how you CANNOT apply for any govt. job unless you have registered with Selective Service.

    Ironic don’t you think? Here, this particular govt. agency both supports and subsidizes talk radio, and talk radio is not willing to broach this subject and expose BHO’s own selective service descrepensies? See a pattern here?

    They’ve been bought off………… all of them.

    Law would fire sheriffs for defying gun control measures

    Supporters of the 380 sheriffs in 15 states who so far have vowed to defy new state and federal gun control laws claim that legislation is starting to pop up around the nation to fire any state elected or appointed law enforcement official who doesn’t obey federal orders.

    The first effort emerged in Texas. Legislation proposed by Dallas Democratic Rep. Yvonne Davis would remove any sheriff or law enforcement officer who refuses to enforce state or federal laws.

    What’s more, it would remove any elected or appointed law enforcement officer for simply stating or signing any document stating that they will not obey federal orders.

    A gun lobbyist told Secrets, “Beware because once something like this is introduced in one state, it will be followed very quickly in several other states.”

  15. Observer,

    Wouldn’t it be nice for a State to pass a law terminating any elected official who refused to obey Federal law of supporting our boarders? Or refusing any illegal immigrant from accepting federal benefits? Lets start there.

  16. Gordo,

    I agree entirely with you post pertaining to Ret. Col. Allen West. Always have.

  17. SueQ,

    To bad you didn’t have a copy of Obama’s tax return with his SS number present for him to run it. LOL…. But I think it’s block now.

  18. Conservative justices rip Obama

    “I don’t see why he doesn’t have the courage of his convictions,” Chief Justice John Roberts said of Obama’s decision to continue following the law, even though he believes it is unconstitutional.

    Justice Antonin Scalia said the legal system appears to be “living in this brave new world” in which the Justice Department can simply opt out of its traditional responsibility to defend federal laws in the courts.

    He questioned who has the power to decide the government will not defend a particular law.

    “It’s only when the president thinks its unconstitutional?” Scalia asked. “Or could the attorney general, or the solicitor general, impose the same determination?”

    Citing his own experience as a lawyer in the Office of Legal Counsel, Scalia said DOMA does not meet the criteria for laws the Justice Department can opt not to defend.

    The Justice Department’s decision to quit defending DOMA has raised complex questions about whether the Supreme Court can rule on the law’s constitutionality.

    The justices seemed open to reaching a decision on the merits, but vented frustration at the way the administration has handled the case.

    Paul Clement, the attorney defending DOMA, said the executive branch has “vacated the premises” on the case. Justice even filed a motion to dismiss the case in a lower court that encouraged that court not to dismiss the case.

    “That does give you intellectual whiplash,” Justice Anthony Kennedy said.

  19. Wouldn’t it be surprising if our brave law enforcers, who could get terminated because they wouldn’t follow a federal law to disarm citizens, challenged the law based on its illegitimacy due to the pResident’s illegitimacy! That could become a class action (throw in border patrol and military) and could finally bring the evidence of the “great one’s” lack of any legitimate SSN to at least one court’s attention. Think anyone will finally get mad enough at all the injustice done to them to actually do something about it?

  20. Observer,

    Roberts must really have a set in order to criticize the Messiah after all, he swore in an illegitimate POTUS not once, but twice.

    He has no business slinging mud; he aided and abetted the fraud perpetrated on the American people.

    Zero credibility and respect.

  26. Good morning CW et al.,

    Reading about Arkansas dilemma over Voter I.D. requirements. I never have understood the argument of not requiring a valid issued I.D. when voting! You need a State or Federal issued I.D. for federal programs such as food stamps, welfare, State insurance, cash a check, open a bank account, but not to vote. That’s like saying giving illegals a driver’s license makes the roads safer!

  28. We will be judged by our silence
    Doug Hagmann Full Story
    What we are seeing today in the fight for “equal rights” by homosexual activists is the culmination of an agenda that was set in motion more than a half-century ago. Before you can fully understand and appreciate what is taking place today, you must first understand that you are being lied to, hoodwinked and manipulated into the erroneous belief that the issue is about “civil rights” or “equal rights.” It’s not. It’s a deliberate perversion of the moral integrity of our society to advance a much larger and more nefarious agenda.


  30. Part Three: The Law Enforcement Provision – Wednesday, March 27, 2013

    Part 1 documented deliberate red flags placed into Virginia Sunahara’s fabricated death certificate by a HDOH worker, which is presumably that worker’s protest at being ordered to illegally falsify records. Similar red flags are found in the BC’s of Ah Nee and Obama (more on Obama’s later).

    Part 2 documented that 4 of the 6 Aug 1961 BC#’s on legal documents issued by the HDOH could not have been the BC’s originally assigned in 1961. The anomalous BC#’s revealed so far belong to Virginia Sunahara, Johanna Ah Nee, Barack Obama, and Stig Waidelich. Obama’s BC# had to belong to the 3rd Honolulu birth after Gretchen Nordyke, which was almost certainly Stig Waidelich.

  31. CW…….

    How do I change my email address I use on here?

  32. I came across this video at The Blaze. It is by Rabbi Benny Hershcovich. He is teaching about Joseph from the Old Testament. He has an unusual style to say the least, but very engaging. He calls it “Don’t lose your connection” but I think it would be better named “Joseph (Jesus) is ALIVE!”
    since Joseph was obviously a “type” of the Messiah that was yet to come. Hope you guys enjoy it.

  33. Part of Miri’s comment at wtpotus:

    “I wonder if Citizen Wells has covered the book “The Road We Are Traveling” because his particular interest is the scrubbing of history a la Orwell’s book 1984. They’re hiding this book by Chase because it IS a blueprint for what they’re doing today and they don’t want those who listen to Beck to realize what they’re up to.

    Glenn says we have about 12 months to STOP THIS in our individual states. I do hope that whatever started in MO and TX with regard to Morpho [dis]Trust potentially gathering up and storing all personal documents on drivers license and concealed carry applicants exposes some of this massive GLOBAL conspiracy.

    How do we know that Chase is the inspiration for Barry? His usual snarky symbology: He entitled one of his self-important speeches The Road We Have Traveled.”

  34. Some of the news that is of vast importance seems to be ignored in favor of “same sex” marriage. North Korea is making threats like never before……..and what happened in Cyprus will eventually arrive in the US…outright theft! You can bank on it.

  35. marriage is between a man, woman and god…a sacrement in the Catholic Church….so why do people that generally don’t believe in God and tend to be the ones that mock christians want anything to do with marriage!?

    give them civil unions and tell them to shut the hell up

  36. I agree with you hockey, in that God invented marriage, and therefore defines it. So they (IMO) should accept civil unions and STHU, as you’ve said. My opinion is that we have hugely serious problems, yet we are distracted with these silly asinine issues that are pushed by no more than 2 to 4% of our population, yet they seem to carry the day in the MSM.

    Not to say that morality is unimportant………….on the contrary, it is of primary importance! But while the SCOTUS fiddles, the USA burns.

  37. SueQ…….

    When you control the press…you can control everything !

    Obama is living proof of this fact! The whole damn world is falling down around our ears and all the press can find to talk about is if its legal for a man to marry a man…or a woman to marry a woman.

    That court case isn’t about same sex marriage…it’s about GIVING BENEFITS PAID FOR WITH TAXPAYER MONEY TO ALL THE HOMOS…..

    Personally, I don’t give a” tinkers damn” what the homos do behind the closed doors of their homes….they can practice all the sick perverted sex they like….but when they bring it too the streets of America, thats another story.

    And where does this sickness stop? If a man can legally marry a man, or a woman can legally marry a woman….why can’t a man have numerous wives?…or a woman have numerous husbands?That should be acceptable considering homosexuality is OK.

    Then to go a little further…why couldn’t either of them marry an animal?….if a man can marry a man, why can’t he marry an animal? Where does the insanity end?That would be no more perveted than a man marrying another man !

    I will not judge the morality of a homosexual mind and actions…that’s above my pay grade…we are in GOD’s area there….but I will judge the social wrongs of such a union…that’s OUR (we the people) job. It’s out taxes that will be used to support this sick bunch of wacko’s.

    While I’m at it, I do not approve of two homosexuals adopting a child. That child will be exposed on a daily basis to the sick agenda of homosexuality and eventually develop into another homosexual that will eventually continue pushing that immoral crap onto other youth..

    With the whole world crumbling around us, SCOTUS has more important things to do than get involved in this silly stuff…..

    How about deciding what a “natural-born” citizen is…or is not? Or maybe deciding if a homo is illegally in the White House? Either of these two would be a good starting point.

  38. RMinNC,
    Once you redefine marriage……….there is no end to it, as you’ve said. I think history proves that this scenario doesn’t end well. It is akin to a suicide wish. Seems to be God’s last straw.

  39. The rapid decline in moral values indicates more than ever that when you have wicked people in the highest places of government, the forces against God and His Word flourish. This verse from II Tim. 3:13 keeps going over and over in my mind this morning:
    But evil men and seducers will wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
    What a picture of today on so many fronts.

  40. AMEN SueQ……

    A quick read of the history of the Roman empire will prove that….but GOD has a way of dealing with this …..ONE SHOULD NOT TRUFFLE WITH GOD….


  41. CABBYAZ….

    GOD has a way of dealing with people like you just mentioned in II Tim………it’s called HELL FIRE….forever and ever.

  42. RMinNC (1:08 pm)

    While I’m at it, I do not approve of two homosexuals adopting a child. That child will be exposed on a daily basis to the sick agenda of homosexuality and eventually develop into another homosexual that will eventually continue pushing that immoral crap onto other youth..
    Couldn’t agree more with you on the subject of homos marrying.

    I just read an article last night about two lesbian reporters at NBC who have “come out of the closet” and publicly announced with great pride that they are expecting their first child this summer. They want that child to understand all about their lifestyle. This can be multiplied over and over again.

    Didn’t one of SCOTUS refer to 40,000 children in CA that are in gay homes? This makes me soul sick and abhor what is happening to these children. God be merciful! “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”

  43. RMinNC | March 28, 2013 at 1:25 pm |
    AMEN SueQ……
    AMEN to both, as well as others who have their eyes open.

  44. RMinNC
    To delineate your statement regarding ‘controlling the press’ a little further, consider the “control of information”. In Orwell’s “1984” there was an entire ministry, such as we are seeing right now ( taxpayer supported in our own government) dedicated to that very purpose.
    There appears to be only two non-violent solutions to the problems we are now faced with, they being the repair of the voting system and, subsequent to that, the rallying of the faithful to use it effectively. at the risk of being redundant…that all happens on the local level, is effective, and within the reach of the common citizen. Chasing false flags within the bureaucracy has proven relatively fruitless in terms of palpable results and,granted, the information gleaned has indeed been somewhat of an education, but in reality has only served to confirm what we already knew or suspected. In the beginning, we had the time to entertain the bureaucracy and it’s inherent lack of urgency, but that time has now become of essence in terms of winning at least a minor significant battle thus enabling us to rid ourselves of this yoke of oppression currently being generated by this rogue administration.
    Sorry for soapboxing on your post…

  45. There is a local woman (from Winchester Va) who married another woman in Vermont. She then became atificialy inseminated and gave birth to a daughter. Shortly after that the mother converted to Christ.

    She then moved back to Va in hopes of raising her daughter and living in peace. Not so. Her ex spouse sued for visitation, then eventually for full custody. She (the lesbian from Vermont, who had no biological connection) was actually granted full custody.

    The mother, at that point, sought help from a local pastor to help her and her daughter leave the country. She did, but the pastor that helped her is in very serious legal trouble. This should have never happened.

    Never, never, never.

  50. Just as with the Roe decision (which in and of itself was a complete farce we later learned) that created a huge industrial complex of a killing machine, now paid for by morally objecting citizens, and basically legalizing back alley abortions (the now prosecuted Philly “doctor” and many others in other states), this current SCOTUS gay “marriage” decision will eventually result in the closure of Church operated hospitals, schools, places of worship, family services, and good people will be imprisoned for not allowing marriages to be performed or teaching (even voicing) objections, or letters to the editor (as in Canada). Inevitably the speech police will be watching in all public places. And citizens will be set up for punishments, not to even get into the discrimination against those actually qualified for the definition of marriage in the first place… well as the free speech and freedom of religion questions which will also be redefined just for these “special” people’s “sensitivities”.

    It can only begin a downward spiral to other radically perverted allowances. This decision will effect the whole world toward grave consequences because our country IS supposed to be the shining example and is looked upon as such in is original design as given by the Creator. But then, as so much these days is decided by….”what could it hurt?”!

  51. I had heard that Ted Olson argued against prop. 8 in California before SCOTUS and I did a double take. Can it be the same Ted Olson? Yes it is. Sad.

  52. The war on Christians. Obama is totally inept.
    Let us remember those Christians in Muslim countries at this time of Easter.

  53. SueQ,
    I am sure the lawyers are more than happy to see anybody marrying anybody, that way there will be more divorce cases for them to make money on, and more child custody battles.

  54. SueQ,
    Ted Olson was a total wimp when it came to the usurper’s eligibility, and the natural born Citizen issue in 2008. Barbara Olson wore the pants in that family.

  55. I’m not sure anyone is following the most and the least FREE states, but I got this in an email today. If you are a wanna-be escapee from a super liberal state like I am ( here in CA) this might interest you. I’m saddened by most comments made by people about Californians on the internet but, in my heart I know that, for the most part, they are valid complaints. My husband and I have lived in this ‘nanny state’ our whole married lives (40+ years & my hubby was born and raised here), and we have mourned for years over what’s happened to our beloved state, just as most of us have mourned over what’s happening to our beloved country. We are NOT in the least liberal, nor do we live in a liberal area, but the larger cities & coastal areas are the ones who seem to determine what our politics will be. Add that to whether our children & grandchildren can follow us to a more free state and it explains why we are still here. 😦 Anyway, here’s a link for consideration for those wanting to find locations where freedom might still exist in our country and where your retirement income might stretch a little farther.

  56. Thistle…………
    I served during the Korean war,and was stationed aboard ship which was home ported at LONG BEACH. In the two year duration of my presence in California I too concluded that it was NOT the state in which I ever wanted to live. US Navy personell were not always angels when ashore but in far too many instances the homosexual crowd were responsible for the subsequent outbreaks of violence against them simply because it was THEY who most often attempted to proposition US servicemen very often within SECONDS after the serviceman had exited the military reservation. It seemed as though these people were waiting just outside the main gate. I too was angered by this sort of thing from those people. All I wanted to do was go ashore ,have a few beers,and take in a movie, or visit a historic site,but alas this was sometimes interrupted by the so called GAY crowd. I find it sickening that the moral character of an ever increasing portion of Americans is continuing to deteriorate. Most folks think that it is only about 1,or 2% of our population who are practicing homosexuals. I personally believe that the figure is MUCH,MUCH higher…..possibly as high as 10%. I personally take offense when a minority,particularly one that practices such a sick,and morally twisted deviant acts,are allowed to ram their slimey immoral behavior down the throats of those of us who are NOT HOMOSEXUAL,and have a large percentage of the courts rule that homosexuality is NORMAL HUMAN BEHAVIOR, and for that reason rule against people who are Christians. Let me say at this point that homosexuality is NOT NORMAL HUMAN BEHAVIOR. It is NORMAL only in the SICK, TWISTED minds of those who practice their filthy acts,and it is they who eventually contract their diseases which ultimately lead to their horrible demise. In their TWISTED minds they think that they will NOT become diseased, only to discover that they have contracted HIV,and then think that the rest of the people around them should pay for the cost of the treatment of their dirty stinking disease. Then to compound all of this they +have the audacity to try to ram their sick twisted beliefs down thwe throats of Christian business owners, such as people who operate fast food resturants etc.,which we saw with the activity against the owner of CHIC-FILLET RESTUARANTS. ( I am not sure of the spelling of the name of the restuarant) but I am sure that it sounds correct. What I am saying is that if these sick deviates want to marry each other ….so be it, let them do it,so long as it does NOT effect the continuity of the quality of MY LIFE. It is they who will only hasten their own destruction. I was raised in a Christian principled home,and I believe in God. Homosexually oriented people are NOT CHRISTIANS. Further I believe that illnesses like HIV was originally brought into human physiology by deviates who practice CARNAL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR with ANIMALS. This is simply my own reasoning, but there has been substantial thought,and scientific research expended by enlightened medical people in the exploration of this belief. I am NOT ALONE in this train of thought by any means. But inevitably HIV has spread to the NON HOMOSEXUAL community via the so called BI SEXUAL practioners. HIV is said to be under control,and there is now abundant drugs to fight it available, and this knowledge has EMBOLDENED the homosexual crowd. I believe that the practice of HOMOSEXUALITY the world over could become so great that it could lead to a TRAGIC end of Christian CIVILISATION as we know it. But then …….TO EACH HIS OWN!

  57. Thistle………
    The FANTASY world of MOVIELAND, has been a facet of the overall problem in the deterioration of MORALITY in America. But I hasten to add that MOVIELAND is NOT TOTALLY at fault. Many Americans themselves are at fault for being so illiterate, that they cannot mentally separate FANTASY from REALITY. To them UP is DOWN. Then we have the ILLEGAL DRUG industry,which is to an extent propelled by the PORNOGRAPHIC INDUSTRY,and visa versa. Collectively these are still only a small part of the entire problem of the DETERIORATION of America. In saddness, it is obvious that many Americans NO LONGER even care what is happening to our once beautiful country. They seem to be to busy in their own pursuits to care. But eventually they will be FORCED TO CARE when they suddenly are confronted by the same fate as the rest of us. Unfortunately for them it will already be TOO LATE.

  58. Thistle………
    In conclusion I agree with everything you have stated. I live in Northeastern Indiana. This state is heavily industrialised,and we still enjoy a fairly low cost living,but I hasten to add we are seeing some rather steep increases in our cost of living. I sure wish that I could offer something that would contribute to a real reduction in the cost of living, particularly in California, which was expensive when I was there in the early 50s. At least to a person from Indiana, California was ALWAYS expensive. I love Northern California, (Sacremento area),and for many years thought that I would someday like to retire to the mountains there. I have long since abandoned that thought. I hope that you folks are able to extricate yourselves from California,as I don’t see the state ever being an economical state to live in. I absolutely HATED the southern area of LA,and Long Beach.
