“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief
“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.
Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 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. As for the third message, it referred to a very simple error which could be set right in a couple of minutes. As short a time ago as February, the Ministry of Plenty had issued a promise (a ‘categorical pledge’ were the official words) that there would be no reduction of the chocolate ration during 1984. Actually, as Winston was aware, the chocolate ration was to be reduced from thirty grammes to twenty at the end of the present week. All that was needed was to substitute for the original promise a warning that it would probably be necessary to reduce the ration at some time in April.”…George Orwell, “1984”
Of course jobs have been added over the past 5 years. Jobs have also been lost. The big story is the record drop in the labor force participation rate and the increase in part time jobs due to Obamacare and the Obama economy.
Obama, Janet Yellen and Labor Secretary Perez have used the best Orwellian linguistics to portray a dismal jobs situation as rosy.
Janet Yellen gave a speech yesterday.
Yellen talks out of both sides of her mouth.
From the transcript.
“Nearly five years into the expansion that began after the financial crisis and the Great Recession, the recovery has come a long way. More than 8 million jobs have been added to nonfarm payrolls since 2009, almost the same number lost as a result of the recession.”
“It is a sign of how far the economy has come that a return to full employment is, for the first time since the crisis, in the medium-term outlooks of many forecasters. It is a reminder of how far we have to go, however, that this long-awaited outcome is projected to be more than two years away.”
“The continued improvement in labor market conditions has been important in this judgment. The unemployment rate, at 6.7 percent, has fallen three-tenths of 1 percentage point since late last year. Broader measures of unemployment that include workers marginally attached to the labor force and those working part time for economic reasons have fallen a bit more than the headline unemployment rate, and labor force participation, which had been falling, has ticked up this year.”
“In sum, the central tendency of FOMC participant projections for the unemployment rate at the end of 2016 is 5.2 to 5.6 percent, and for inflation the central tendency is 1.7 to 2 percent. If this forecast was to become reality, the economy would be approaching what my colleagues and I view as maximum employment and price stability for the first time in nearly a decade. I find this baseline outlook quite plausible.”
“Other data suggest that there may be more slack in labor markets than indicated by the unemployment rate. For example, the share of the workforce that is working part time but would prefer to work full time remains quite high by historical standards. Similarly, while the share of workers in the labor force who are unemployed and have been looking for work for more than six months has fallen from its peak in 2010, it remains as high as any time prior to the Great Recession. There is ongoing debate about why long-term unemployment remains so high and the degree to which it might decline in a more robust economy. As I argued more fully in a recent speech, I believe that long-term unemployment might fall appreciably if economic conditions were stronger.
The low level of labor force participation may also signal additional slack that is not reflected in the headline unemployment rate. Participation would be expected to fall because of the aging of the population, but the decline steepened in the recovery. Although economists differ over what share of those currently outside the labor market might join or rejoin the labor force in a stronger economy, my own view is that some portion of the decline in participation likely represents labor market slack.”
How about this gem.
“I believe that long-term unemployment might fall appreciably if economic conditions were stronger.”
Classic Obama lies from a speech yesterday in Oakdale, Pennsylvania.
“Now, we’ve spent the past five and a half years fighting back from the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes. The good news is our economy is growing again, our businesses are creating jobs. We’ve created nearly 9 million jobs over the past four years. We’ve cut our deficits by more than half. Our manufacturing sector that used to be losing jobs, just hemorrhaging jobs, is now adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. (Applause.) The first time since the 1990s. High school dropout rates are going down. College attendance rates and graduation rates are going up. Our troops are coming home. (Applause.) We’re seeing an energy boom all across the country. And more than 7.5 million people have been able to sign up for health care, many for the very first time, through the Affordable Care Act. (Applause.) And 7.5 million people, by the way, is about the number that it would take to fill up Heinz Field 115 times.”
From Citizen Wells April 7, 2014.
“The US Labor Dept. reported the March employment data on Friday April 4, 2014.
US Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez issued the following statement:
“Today’s report tells the story of a solid and steady economic recovery delivering more opportunity for more people. We saw 192,000 new jobs in the month of March, and the private sector has now created 8.9 million jobs over the last 49 consecutive months of employment growth. The unemployment rate held steady at 6.7 percent and is down from 7.5 percent a year ago.
“There is encouraging news across sectors. Health-care employment increased by 19,000 jobs. The average work week in manufacturing rebounded to 42.0 hours, tied for the highest mark since July 1945. Motor vehicle sales had their strongest month in seven years. At the height of the recession, there were six job seekers for every job available. Today, it’s two-and-a-half people competing for every open job.
“Without question, there is more still to do. On issues from infrastructure to immigration reform, from manufacturing to the minimum wage, there are steps Congress can take that will help more people punch their ticket to the middle class.
“For the 57th straight month (since the middle of 2009), at least one-third of jobless Americans have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks. So, priority number one must be for the House and Senate to extend emergency unemployment benefits that they irresponsibly allowed to expire more than three months ago, creating profound hardship for 2.3 million people. These benefits are a critical lifeline for job seekers struggling to get back on their feet; but they also act as a broader economic stimulus, putting money in people’s pockets and spurring consumer demand.
“The success of the Affordable Care Act is helping working families enjoy greater economic security, the peace of mind of knowing they won’t be wiped out by an injury or illness. The open enrollment period ended with 7.1 million people signing up for health coverage they didn’t have before. The ACA will help provide a shot in the arm to the economy, as people are free to start their own businesses and pursue entrepreneurial ventures now that their health insurance is no longer tied to their job.”
The “1984″ analogy is obvious.
As most of you know, Obamacare is costing millions of Americans far more in healthcare premiums.
Despite the best linguistic efforts of Secretary Perez to put a positive spin on the impact of Obamacare, it is also impacting jobs.

CFO SURVEY: AFFORDABLE CARE ACT COULD CURTAIL HIRING
Note to editors: For additional comment, see contact information at the end of this release.
Watch professor John Graham discuss the results (or use this link
http://youtu.be/F4oj8d5F9Jo). You may also post this video on your website. Names of CFOs who took part in the survey and agreed to speak with media are available by request.
DURHAM, N.C. — A significant percentage of U.S. chief financial officers indicate that because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), they may reduce employment growth at their firms and shift toward part-time workers.
A majority of finance chiefs also believe the full Social Security retirement age should be raised to help close the budget shortfall.
Despite these issues, underlying economic conditions are expected to improve in 2014 and, except in Europe, corporate charitable giving remains strong
These are some of the findings from the latest Duke University/CFO Magazine Global Business Outlook Survey, which concluded Dec. 5. The survey has been conducted for 71 consecutive quarters and spans the globe, making it the world’s longest running and most comprehensive research on senior finance executives. Presented results are for U.S. firms unless otherwise noted.
EMPLOYMENT EFFECTS OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA.
One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.
Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”
From data provided by the US Labor Dept. we learn:
The Labor Force Participation Rate has dropped 2.5 percent since Obama took office in January 2009 and actually has dropped .1 percent the past year.
The number of people who could only find part time work has risen 1,055,000 since Obama took office and has risen 146,000 in the past year.
The only statement from Secretary Perez that reflects reality is:
“For the 57th straight month (since the middle of 2009), at least one-third of jobless Americans have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks.””

BLM: We are Worried Cliven Bundy Might Have Prescriptive Rights & He Might Use that Defense in Court
Read more at http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/04/blm-worried-cliven-bundy-might-prescriptive-rights-might-use-defense-court/#I6f24Z1bVg54zhxp.99
Good source of info there. Here is an interesting comment from that link:
tom nogaro • 8 hours ago
bundy should appeal that order of 2013, or at least move to set aside or vacate the judgment/order, since the blm did not, and could not under the constitution, show proven ownership of the land at the time of commencement of the suit and throughout (standing).
this matter requires a quitclaim action to dispose of bundy’s prescriptive easement (at the least) or adverse possession (at best) as well as the standing issue.
the federal government was arguably not a proper party to the original suit (another defense). rather, the state of nevada was, and so it must be made a necessary party to the new quitclaim suit, unless it deeds over to bundy all rights it possesses, and he pays for same (say, one dolla).
the “admission” by the blm officials that they are worried bundy may have prescriptive rights is sufficient enough reason to reopen this case. if the blm, or anyone else, causes the shedding of one drop of blood, on either side (“no exit”, as sartre wrote), without litigating this possibility, real as it is, then the whole house of cards falls on it for intentional damages, civil and criminal and administrative, since it has the highest fiduciary duty to protect we the people (bundy being just one, and the blm troops being others) from fraud, including and especially its own. otherwise, chaotic rule of man and not law is encouraged and perpetuated.
likewise, the same need for certainty, along with the concomitant highest fiduciary duty, applies to harry the deadest as a public official and his son, rory dead, as a lawyer and officer of the court, as well as eric the buddy and zero as public officials knowingly executive over this fiasco, and eric the buddy as a lawyer as well. (i think zero is no longer licensed.)
all the other private players who seek to benefit from this putative public agency fraud, like buffet, beijing, enn, psoriasis, etal, best also beware of their acts, and seek the same quitclaim remedy to settle the title upon which their contracts would be based, given these facts, since if they do not then they would be intentionally acting at open risk of being held complicit with all the ensuing arguable fraud and theft and violence, as i’ve written before.
harry the deadest is right, as is his broken clock twice a day, about one thing: this thing ain’t over yet.
just my 2 cents.
Under oath; computer programmer tells all; October, 2000.
How many elections were stolen??
Feel better now about voting??
Ohio presidential election was hacked; why not all states??
Since this confession and testimony, I have read that the hacking is done remotely.
Good morning. The Orwellian spin is nonstop, whether on jobs or other matters. From the previous thread–Gordo & Jayjay–How do we explain the collusion an entire government–executive, legislative and judicial branches–in the “birther” fraud? Not only this but opposition candidates (Romney- Ryan, McCain-Palin, Hillary Clinton, etc) and Conservative Talk Radio?
I have asked this question going back to 2008, when it was obvious to me that Obama was former CIA and a Muslim.
There is one thing that trumps all others in the government: National security. And the CIA is considered unimpeachable.
My conclusion: The CIA has vouched to all the elites in DC and the Media that Obama is okay and in the interest of national security, because he worked for them, his background must not be questioned.
The CIA is considered to be patriotic and not to be questioned, as it is the organization doing our “dirty work” keeping the nation safe.
So, Senator Lee and others have been told to say away from the “birther” issue. They are told: Obama is good. He’s just more leftwing than we want or are used to. But he knows the Muslim world. We need oil. If he is too strongly challenged or removed by impeachment, etc, we can expect race riots, economic collapse, loss of oil and civil unrest.
That is the blackmail the CIA is holding over the country. The CIA recruited Muslims during the Cold War and helped build up the Muslim Brotherhood to oppose the Soviets. Even Ronald Reagan went along with this Muslim recruitment. Obama is the result of this–Muslim and Leftist infiltration into government agencies with Obama now spearheading the effort, controlling the CIA and so much else. Everyone thinks they must go along to get along, hoping the next election will work to restore things back. But, as we now know, the last election was rigged at the Presidential level and they are working to rig the elections for the congress and local levels as well. So, we’re in a bad place. Mark Levin’s idea of the States rising up and taking action–his book on the liberty ammendments–is the only solution I’ve heard of so far that sounds constructive and workable if we can get people motivated.
Have posted the following a number of times:
http://conventionofstates.com/ states are already on board (am involved in my state–easy to do)
http://www.oas2014.com/ Washington, D.C. ongoing event organized for 5/16/14
It appears that Tom Nogaro sees the Bundy fiasco pretty much as I do. If one drop of blood is shed in this entire mess the BLM’s house of cards will collapse upon every one of them,and it would probably not end there…..I would think that the upper echelon people would be CONVICTED of being ACCESSORIES to MURDER,and would be seeing the inside of a slammer for quite a few years. With respect to the property,ownership,and the rights of the people who use FREE RANGE as it is called, I believe that Nogaro is DEAD ON THE MONEY. That said, I again say that if the SLIMEY REEDS try anything at all they will end up with a “TIGER BY THE TAIL”, and the tiger is NOT GOING TO BE VERY HAPPY about it. I fully expect the SNOTNOSE to try IMINENT DOMAIN, and will seek CONDEMNATION of the property involved if he is after it to allegedly develop,and put into the hands of the Chinese Company. It is probably correct to say that “it isn’t over until it is over”. (BABE RUTH)
I have said repeatedly that if all 50 states were to convene a VOTE conference to Secede from the Union,I would bet that it would not take much convincing to accomplish it. All 50 states MUST DO THIS SIMULTANEOUSLY, and in less than 15 minutes the SO CALLED Federal GOVERNMENT would be completely disenfranchised, and USELESS.It would only require another 15 minutes to set up a temporary government. The USURPER,and all of his supporters will be UNEMPLOYED, and the WORDTWISTERS will not have a job either. All of their alleged Federal laws will also be MOOT. The application of law will be brought back to STATE level,and that is where it needs to remain. All federal agencies will also be out of a job. The first thing that needs to happen is the reinstatement of the CIRCUIT JUDGE,who isn’t fooled by wordtwisters, and just like his old time counterparts carries with him a number of garrotes, principally for EFFECT….but also to be used if the occasion demands. Simultaneously the people who have supported the treason within the government need to be quickly arrested before they can FLEE. We need to appoint, and require heavy bonding of several thousand US Marshals, all of whom will be required to sign a contract which binds them to the enforcement of our Constitutional law.
There’s a lot more going on in NV re. government land than we have known, and it involves big Dems associated with Clinton, Gore, et al. Wind and solar farms are in the books for many of the western states; consequently, they will go belly up at the expense of the taxpayers and the enrichment of these money hogs. Worst of all, the cattlemen and others making a legitimate living will be booted off the land. That is the wicked, unreasonable plan. Green energy is a way for the crooks to get rich and bleed the taxpayers. It is not self-sustainable as we’ve discovered.
“……the solar energy complex financed by the communist Chinese was not at the heart of the Bundy Ranch fiasco after all. The project died last year.
However, the BLM’s library of renewable energy projects revealed it was only one of more than 50 solar, wind and geothermal projects planned for Nevada, California, Arizona and other Western states. Reid was focused on at least one, and maybe more, of the projects, much closer to the Bundy ranch.”

If Soetoro was born in 1961, I seriously doubt that he would have been of much use to the CIA until 1979 or 1980. He allegedly entered the LA College in 1980. It was at some point during the time he spent in LA that he allegedly met his MUSLIM friends, and not long thereafter decided to travel to Pakistan with one of them. Concieveably this would have been pretty much the only time in which he might have served the CIA. I have some serious reservations about any service he might have carried out for the CIA,and further I have even stronger doubts that he would have ever been HIRED as a covert operative. This would have required some really heavy education and at that point he had pathetically little formal education…..(and even that being DOUBTFUL.)
Dean M. (11:57 am)
That is the blackmail the CIA is holding over the country.
Your take on this is the only one that makes any sense. Sen. Mike Lee can’t be accused of participating in the Jan., 2009, acceptance of Obama by Congress, because he wasn’t even elected until 2010. (Likewise, Rand Paul, and others.) Also, you make a very good point in referring to the conservative talk folks, who deplore Obama’s freewheeling rule and yet will not touch the birther issue. They not only won’t touch it, but won’t let anyone else bring it up.
Yes, as some have pointed out, there are, no doubt, threats that have been made. Goodness knows, there are plenty in Congress with all sorts of skeletons in their closets, but not all 535. Some, like Stockman, show an interest for awhile, and then all of a sudden cool off. The “national security” angle could be responsible for some subsequently turning a deaf ear.
When you think of it – It’s mind-boggling! Here’s an agency that is supposed to help keep us safe yet has done just the opposite, and all under the guise of national security. It is irony on steroids. We have probably never been under greater peril both from within and without, and primarily because our leaders have been hoodwinked, as well as a majority of Americans. Talk about a “trojan horse.”
More and more….and pretty rapidly now….we are witnessing the filthy lucre of the world in fewer and fewer hands who have no qualms about the “peasant” population being euthanized or aborted or eliminated in just such lawless means as govt takeover of private ownership just as long as they are at the helm of the smaller population with of course more for them. Just look at the “benevolent” projects of the Gates’ for limiting world population in those areas where their answer is always population control by whatever methods for food and services. The “great” one world organization for “the better good” of all. Look for the great “leader” over all to appear as a powerful “benevolent philanthropist”.
Well said……..but I can’t help wonder who exactly is going to win the race to reduce the world population. Of late I have gotten the feeling that MOTHER NATURE,might turn out to be the GRAND CHAMPION,at reducing world population. Unfortunately when Mother nature turns on her vacuum cleaner, entire towns disappear, and leave behind large numbers of dead people. But yes if the Hitler idea of SUPERMEN dominating the world ever comes to pass then there probably will be the return to MASS MURDER of people simply because they pursue a certain religion,which is looked upon by the SUPERMEN as being DEFECTIVE HUMANITY. But after all is said and done it is the SUPERMEN who have been BURIED. “JA VEE ISS DER SUPERMEN”……AND look where THEY ALL ARE NOW. HAR HAR
It really sickens me to to watch so many American people allow themselves to be BROW BEATEN by the SLIMEY leaders who the same people put in office. Now these people are beginning to reap the dividends of their errant vote. Before it is over these people will be asking the rest of us to help them. I am not sure if I would have any sympathy for any of them.
Down memory lane……Dr. Manning’s take on the Obama CIA involvement:
According to Dr. Manning, Obama (born in 1961) enrolled at the very pricey Occidental College in Los Angeles, California in 1979 and was recruited there in 1980 by the CIA which has made it a practice since its inception to recruit college students. He was, by his own admission, a “C” student, a dope smoker and a member of the Marxist Club at Occidental, a co-educational liberal arts college. In 1981, Obama allegedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia University. It is atypical for a student to begin their education in one four-year school and then transfer to another school. Columbia University requires that incoming students pass certain academic requirements which Obama apparently lacked. However, Columbia had a foreign student program and the CIA has major connections and influence with Columbia and the nation’s other educational facilities.
The CIA needed Muslims or others who were fluent in Farsi and who could easily blend into the Muslim environment in the Middle East. The CIA persuaded Columbia University to extend their foreign student program to Obama, now a Columbia student, so that he might travel to Pakistan and enroll in the universities around Karachi in addition to the Patrice Lumumba School in Moscow.  The school, one of Russia’s most prestigious universities was founded on February 5, 1960 as The Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (PFUR). It was renamed the Patrice Lumumba School on February 22, 1961. On February 5, 1992 the university re-adopted its former name. According to their web site, “The main aim was to give young people from Asia, Africa and Latin America, especially from poor families, an opportunity to get University education and to become highly qualified specialists. The students were admitted through non-governmental organizations, governmental establishments, and the USSR embassies and consulates.” 
Obama, as an undercover agent, was the lead agent in the arms and money supply for the CIA-trained Taliban Army against the Soviet Army war machine. His actions were integral to the Taliban’s success in their opposition to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Obama, it is publicly acknowledged, went to Pakistan in 1981. There is no way of knowing how often Obama traveled between Pakistan and Russia. According to Dr. Manning, Obama was an interpreter for the CIA during the war in Afghanistan. When Obama completed his CIA operations in the mid 1980s and returned to the U.S. he persuaded the State Department to maneuver his entrance into Harvard Law School; since the CIA, the U.S. president’s personal agency for black operations throughout the world, also has connections to federal and state politicians, they managed to arrange Obama’s entrance to yet another elite school in 1988 (via Percy Sutton and his connections to the one with connections to the Saudi money).
The labor statistics that you posted paint a pretty bleak outlook for America. Our illness is complicated by organised labor’s continual demand for MORE, MORE ,AND MORE. SOON THE COMPANY IS NO LONGER PROFITABLE, AT WHICH POINT IT EITHER CLOSES UP,OR GETS SOLD OUT. THE CLOSE UP, AND THE SUBSEQUENT MOVE TO MEXICO HAS HAPPENED,AND IS still HAPPENING. And now many of our manufacturing companies have closed their doors and have become IMPORTERS…..simply because they can buy the same item they made much cheaper from China than it cost to build it themselves. In the process a hell of a lot of employees become UNEMPLOYED. As I have said many times before I believe that things are going to become much worse before our country, if ever is able to turn it around. As more and more people become UNEMPLOYED the GNP suffers as well. In addition the more people who are unemployed the less income the FED HAS to give away to his foreign friends, or blow on his PIE IN THE SKY dreams of UTOPIA.
I fail to understand why our government even became involved with the war against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Certainly there is nothing good that originates from the country.Only lots of heroin. Of course we already know that Soetoro was ,and probably still is a dope smoker,and possibly a distributor for dope in other countries, via his GOON SQUAD.This must now be a QUALIFICATION, for the POTUS.
FOLLOW THE MONEY….
All problems in this old world lead back to, or away from money….the NV BLM standoff is no different.
Consider just how deep this rabbit hole is now. This post was lifted from abovetopsecret today…..our government in partnership with the Chinese government and my city of Charlotte NC along with … and DUKE energy is right in the middle of the fight…….now that’s a threesome, but throw in the Chinese energy company ENN and you have a full house…
here is what was published at above top secret ……you can decide for yourself
OK, please bear with me as I put this altogether for you…
This rabbit hole is getting deeper by the minute! Upon further research I believe there is more evidence to back up X’s claim with the exception that the Chi Com are involved! – Bundy’s ranch is located in MESQUITE , NV.
I think we can all agree on that.
Now take a look at the solar wind plant project in SEARCHLIGHT, NV which is “Search Light wind according to the BLM website”.
This site is approximately 140 miles away from Bundy’s ranch in Mesquite, according to mapquest.com
From the BLM website: BLM.GOV Bundy’s Ranch is inside the Solar Energy Zone! SOUTHERN NEVADA DISTRICT – Searchlight Wind (Duke Energy) Fast Facts Click here for more information about Searchlight Wind. • The project would occupy approximately 780 acres of public land one mile east of Searchlight, Nevada. • The project would include 156 wind turbines and other related facilities, including a substation administered by the Western Area Power Administration east of Searchlight, Nevada. • The project would produce approximately 200 megawatts of electricity. • The project would supply energy to the Western Area Power transmission line.
Duke Energy is an energy company with headquarters in Charlotte, NC, that serves portions of the United States and Latin America. Duke Energy is responsible for the Search Light Wind Project.
Now, take a look at this: Not Just Latin America!! WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton presided over a signing ceremony in which Duke Energy and China-based ENN Group joined forces to form an EcoPartnership with the city of Charlotte, N.C., and the Chinese city of Langfang in Hebei Province.
The EcoPartnership program is administered by the U.S. Department of State and the People’s Republic of China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). It focuses on and encourages a wide range of collaborative public-private activities designed to stimulate innovation and sustainable economic development.
This EcoPartnership agreement follows a Jan. 18, 2011, announcement of a Duke Energy and ENN collaboration on the development of green cities in China and the U.S. The EcoPartnership will focus on cleaner energy generation, smart grid technologies, energy storage and energy efficiency solutions. Duke Energy and ENN’s initial EcoPartnership projects will involve testing of solar power generation, substation and community battery storage capabilities, grid management optimization and energy efficiency initiatives.
The larger EcoPartnership collaboration will be complemented by best-practice sharing at the municipal level. Specifically, the cities of Charlotte and Langfang (which is located approximately 40 miles southeast of Beijing) will collaborate on promoting energy efficiency education and encouraging local community action. Others may join this EcoPartnership in the future, including universities, additional companies and other public entities. David Mohler, Duke Energy’s chief technology officer, and Dr. Zhongxue Gan, vice chairman and CTO of ENN Group, signed the EcoPartnership agreement in the presence of Secretary Clinton, Assistant Secretary of State Dr. Kerri-Ann Jones and NDRC Minister Zhenhua Xie. Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and Langfang Mayor Aimin Wang also participated in the signing. Duke Energy
So now we have a link between the United States government, Duke Energy, and ENN, the largest clean energy company in the PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC of CHINA!
But there is more! Follow the money trail, right?
Campaign donors, politicians behind Searchlight wind project Duke Energy, Sen. Reid play a major role as wind-turbine farm imposed on community BY KYLE GILLIS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 2013 | SEARCHLIGHT —
The Department of the Interior may have recently approved the Searchlight Wind Project, but those who stand to benefit most from the project are politicians and well-connected campaign donors, and not the people of Searchlight. “People from other communities told us, ‘you don’t want [wind turbines],’” said Sandy Walters, chairwoman of the Searchlight Town Advisory Board. “We tried telling that to BLM and Duke Energy, too.”
Dirty Harry is getting sappy on us: In April 2001, then-Sen. Harry Reid, a Searchlight native, wrote a letter to the Searchlight Town Advisory Board arguing against a proposed gas fire-powered plant asserting that it would “ruin” views of Searchlight’s natural beauty. I love to come home and breath the fresh air and see the vistas from my home. This proposed power plant would forever foul the air and ruin the beautiful views of the mountains I love, not only for me, but everyone that lives in Searchlight I would hope for the residents of Searchlight and basic fairness, you would recommend against this monstrosity.
In January 2013, however, the now-Senate Majority Leader Reid responded differently to Searchlight residents who sent him more than 550 signed postcards arguing against the proposed Duke wind project. Nevada Journal So what do you think now? Is this really about One man’s cow’s? I think this whole plan is unraveling before our eyes! And We the People are losing! How about you ATS? Your thoughts? There is much more to come soon! Thanks for your time! pax –

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media.
Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.

Well said……..but I can’t help wonder who exactly is going to win the race to reduce the world population. Of late I have gotten the feeling that MOTHER NATURE,might turn out to be the GRAND CHAMPION,at reducing world
Agree….perhaps the biggest sweep by nature could be the possible coming pole shift due to planetary positioning with its magnetic pull…already seeing some of that effect on our core as the pull gets stronger, but shh….don’t want people panicking!
And this is precisely why we need to guard our Republic.
Mass kill cattle in order to save the tortoise??? While beef prices go up….and, um, apparently can’t substitute with turtle soup either!
Pic: BLM Leaves Behind Mass Grave For Cattle At Bundy Ranch…
Bundy told Swann that federal agents have fled the area and left a great deal of gear and equipment and that they aren’t likely to return any time soon for it. He also said that federal agents destroyed much of the grazing infrastructure on the land, including water lines, water tanks, troughs, corrals, and fences.
The damage didn’t stop at just destroying infrastructure: Bundy revealed that their cattle, about 40 or so, had been killed by federal agents and thrown into a mass grave.
In these photographs provided to Benswann.com from the Bundy family, you can see that so called mass grave which was dug out with the use of a backhoe. Already inside that dirt grave you can see the body of at least one of the cattle.
Help!….Has any one hear received post cards , letter and a several page question to fill out that comes from the United States Department of Commerce, Economics and Statistics Administration U. S. Census Bureau, Washington D.C. The envelope says it came from Jeffersonville, IN 47132-0001 [ My spell check keeps saying that Jeffersonville, is spelled wrong??? Get this all of the information does not have our name on it nor does it have signed names from the Census Bureau.
We have been warned that if we do not register on line or send in the filled out questioner there will be someone at our door! 😦
A message from the Director, U.S. Census Bureau…
In a few days your household will receive instructions in the mail on how to complete a very important national survey, the American Community Survey. Please follow the instructions to complete the survey promptly. The U. S. Census Bureau is conducting this survey and chose your address. not you personally, as part of a randomly selected sample.
The American Community Survey collects information about various topics like education, housing, and jobs. Information from this survey is issued by federal, state, local, and tribal governments to meet the needs of communities across America. For example, community leaders use this information to decide where schools, highways, hospitals, and other services are needed. The survey also is used to develop programs to reduce traffic congestion, provide job training. and plan for the health care needs of the elderly.
AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS BEEN SO LUCKY TO BE PICKED BY ADDRESS OR IS THIS A JOKE?
On the letter heading all blue the symbol is round and on top it says
DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
In the middle it has a shape like a cup and on top is an Eagle.
Inside it has a three sail ship sitting what looks like a Sea side watch tower
then on the bottom rounded it says
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A new bill has been introduced in the House to strip Eric Holder of his pay. He’s refusing to enforce the law and is directly supporting corruption.
He has committed crimes and has betrayed the constitution… he shouldn’t be paid, he should be punished.
Just In: Obama Accused By Congressman Of Illegal Action At Bundy Ranch

Mass kill cattle in order to save the tortoise???
One of the most heartrending things that happened as related by the Bundys was the death of calves who were unable to keep up with their mothers when being chased by the helicopters. That was pure cruelty, and I’ll repeat what my dear mother used to say: Anyone who is brutal and abusive to animals will most likely be capable of the same thing to fellow humans. I believe that. I’m not talking about good sportsmanship, mercy-killing when needed for animals, or the slaughter house.
I don’t think this is an exaggeration or fear mongering, but if the course of events doesn’t change, the same brutality can easily be waged against us someday by runaway government zealots. Evil is evil.
You and I feel the same way about this type of abuse.
It will come back to them. In spades.
If they’re planning a raid on the Bundy ranch (and it appears they are), it will not end well for them. Never underestimate the power of the American people, especially when they’re armed.
Bombshell Report Links Hillary Clinton To Missing State Department Billions…
The amount of money missing is staggering…
Hi Sue K,
No wonder the 2nd Amendment is becoming more vital everyday. Can we imagine what would have happened at Bundy’s if private citizens could not have guns and ammunition? No wonder there is such a drive by the progressives and enemies of liberty to register and ultimately confiscate all such weapons.
Sadly it is going to take somebody either being shot, and/or killed in the Bundy family before the war will begin. If anybody in the BLM or Soetoro’s goon squad is stupid enough to shoot somebody, the people who are backing the Bundys are then legally justified to return the fire, and if it is returned it will not be wasted each bullet will end some dumb asse’s life. They will find themselves up against Oathkeepers ,and quite a few other militia groups. The militia groups are all capable of shooting a 180 (EXPERT RIFLEMAN),and they don’t waste ammo……1 shot 1 kill. These people spend huge amounts of money just practicing. If they try to send in a drone it will probably be shot out of the sky if the operator is stupid enough to get to close. But everything screams for lots of photographs to be presented at the trials of the bastards who perpetrated the raid . Lets see if the GOON SQUAD,or the BLM have the GONADS to go up against TRAINED snipers,and a hell of a lot of vengeance seeking infantrymen. If all of this actually happens, I seriously doubt if it will end very soon,or very well. I expect that the Bundy war could very easily turn into the opening of the NEXT Civil War. I too am not trying to fear monger,I am simply stating what a bad Bundy outcome could turn into. The pot has been boiling for some time and it could easily boil over if the FED intervenes in any way. I also believe that the REEDS would be among the very first to feel the BITE OF THE GARROTE. If the BLM goons have killed cattle then they will have no compunction about killing people.
Misplacing (AHEM) money is one of the things that CLINT is real good at. She got lots of practice in Arkansas (WHITEWATER).
The DOJ ARAB,should be stripped of his pay as a penalty for failing to comply with the investigating comittee who SUBPOENAED certain documents which he refused to provide. He is now in CONTEMPT of CONGRESS, and rightfully should be constrained to jail, as such. ……and now MZZZZZZZZZZZ. Lerner has joined his club. She too needs to feel the constraint of a jail cell. Hell before it is over the REEDS might also belong to the JAILBIRD CLUB……that is up until their necks are stretched.
I would further guess that Mzzzzzzzzzzzz. POOOOOOOSI could easily become Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Lerner’s cellmate. …….after which Mr. Shoooooooooomer, should receive his subpoena to the Congressional Grand jury. all of the aforementioned have supported TREASON, and are therefore ACCESSORIES AFTER THE FACT!
SIC EM TREY, GO GET EM BOY, TEAR THEM A NEW ANUS.
Here is something for a vote….which of the following two personalities do you believe is the honest person, and more likely to do the right thing when the chips are down…Jeb Bush or Allen West. I have the privilege of casting the first vote……Allen West
Bye bye for tonight! Everybody have a great day tomorrow!
Numbers which should strike fear in any foreign or domestic enemy of We the People. About 75 million US adults own at least one gun. Up to 20 million of these are war veterans. US citizens own in total about 300 million guns for an average of four per household. The number of armed local, county, State and Federal officers is about 1 million. So veterans with guns outnumber officers by 20:1 and armed citizens in total outnumber officers by 75:1. These startling numbers are why so many tyrants want to take our guns away and buy up all the ammunition.
This Nation was formed shortly after Redcoats marched the Battle Road through Lexington to the colonist’s secret armory in Concord. Patriots along the route engaged the Redcoats, some fell, and started the irreversible path to the Revolution and our Republic. The war commenced because a tyrant wanted to take away Patriots’ guns and ammunition. We the people, a sleeping giant, are being awakened.
I respectfully disagree with you……The sad fact is the number of people who havn’t yet awakened by far outweighs the number who have. Many still nonchalantly, continue to SNORE…..they couldn’t care less. Many even think Soetoro is the greatest thing since ice cream. I pray that enough awaken to become the MAJORITY,instead of remaining the MINORITY. Maybe the awakening will come when they try to use their FREE healthcare.
We (most of us) have already filled out census forms a few years back,and the Census Department has NO BUSINESS asking for MORE INFORMATION NOW The census is OVER. I would show all of the material FILE 13. (WASTE BASKET), and if some GOON comes to your door tell him to show a warrant,or BEAT IT.
…..that is a warrant signed by a real judge.
You are pretty much correct though regarding the numbers of people with weapons,and I would say pretty close as to the number of VETS in existence. What will change the game radically depends upon how many of everybody are ready,and/or willing to stand up against the crap that has come from DC so far,as well as that YET TO COME…..which WILL BE A HELL OF A LOT WORSE. If the1200 PEOPLE who allegedly constitute our DC FED think that they can WORDTWIST their way out of a GARROTE they are fooling themselves….because it is their WORDTWISTING, blatant LIES,and support of TREASON that has put the garrote about their necks in the first place,and BASTARDS WILL ALWAYS BE….BASTARDS!
……in my comments above I used the word WARRANT,I should have used the words COURT ORDER. Warrants are for either SEARCH,ARREST,ETC. NEVER answer questions put to you by somebody at your door. If somebody does come to your door,and you tell him to leave,but he insists then CALL (911) and ask for immediate help. Your life could be in danger!
Here is one for you….. Very recently a youngster came to our door, and asked if we would be interested in buying our natural gas for a lot less than we are now paying. I played along for a few minutes allowing him to commit to his line of BS. Then I lowered the boom on him. Our supplier is a state regulated supplier, simply put there is no UNREGULATED sales entity who can UNDERSELL a regulated seller, that is at the PER THERM price. Many people don’t know what PER THERM even means,and everyday hundreds get suckered into buying their natural gas at HIGHER prices as a result. Look at your current billing. Somewhere on it there will be an explanation of the words PER THERM, and the price that you are presently paying per therm. When somebody tries to peddle alleged low cost natural gas take a long questioning look at his per therm price….if he can’t tell you about the per therm price he probably doesn’t know himself what it means. This is always the price that you must look at, if you are comparing. He thought he was talking to some numbskull. I ended my sentence with BYE. He did know what that meant,and that he didn’t BS me……I sort of enjoyed it all.
Thanks oldsailor81….We will take your advice and we plan on telling the person who may come to our door that we sent it to our senator to see if it was real as there are many scandals in our world. We plan on telling him or her if we get a visit that as soon as our senator gives the ok it will be in the mail! 🙂
