NC lost thousands of jobs in June, Labor force participation rate plummeted 3.8 percent since Obama took White House in January 2009, Reduced unemployment benefits and labor force dropouts lower unemployment rate

“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

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.” …James Pethokoukis, American Enterprise Institute, June 2013



NC lost thousands of jobs in June.

The big story is that the NC labor force participation rate plummeted 3.8 percent since Obama took the White House in January 2009.

From Triangle Business Journal July 18, 2014.

“N.C. economy sheds thousands of jobs in June”

“North Carolina lost more than 8,500 jobs in June, wiping out job gains experienced since March. The net job loss was attributable largely to job losses in the government sector.

The unemployment rate of 6.4 percent was unchanged from May to June, though that has to do with how the rate is artificially measured. A more accurate depiction of the jobs picture is to look at total jobs.”
“The state measures unemployment in two ways, one through a survey of households, which is where the official unemployment rate comes from, and one from a survey of employers, typically referred to as “nonfarm employment.” This nonfarm measure excludes workers in general government, teachers, private households, nonprofit organizations and individual or corporate farms, a measure that makes up roughly 77 percent of the total gross domestic product, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

By that measure, the state lost an estimated 5,800 jobs from May to June, though it still had 74,800 more jobs than in June of last year.
Going by the household survey reflects a job loss of 8,577, but an unchanged unemployment rate of 6.4 percent. Since last year, the rate had been steadily declining, but looking at only the rate gives a false overall jobs picture. One of the major policies implemented by the state government was to reduce the length of time that individuals receive unemployment benefits after being laid off. This policy has had the effect of artificially reducing the unemployment rate.
By reducing benefits, the household unemployment survey technically tallies fewer people in the labor force, even if those people haven’t actually found jobs or stopped looking for work. Reducing the officially counted labor force number, even if that number is reduced artificially because of reduced unemployment benefits, will drive the unemployment rate down – artificially in North Carolina.”

    Here is another way to look at it all……..when all of the over educated halfwits in DC have finally driven all businesses out of America, there will be 100% unemployment,and a like welfare number. I wonder where the fed will get the money,because the corporate tax base will be GONE,and taxable personal income will also be zero. In effect everything the overeducated HALFWITS do only solidifies companies decisions to leave America. When they leave they do not take their employees with them. That means that their employees either end up in the unemployed line or on welfare. How long can a government that has zero income remain in power? Now the morons are trying to find ways of penalising companies who leave America. When they try to penalise a company that has moved to Ireland they probably will get a lot of BIRDIE jestures,but NO MONEY. GONE IS GONE!

    Apple,Inc has set the trend, and it is my belief that more and more American businesses will relocate to Ireland, or perhaps any country which has a reasonable corporate tax rate. I personally believe that one hell of a lot of American businesses will eventually close up,and leave. Especially those who already have a lot of foreign customers. When everything STOPS, America will be in it’s death throes….as will a hell of a lot of Americans. NO COMMERCIALLY PROCESSED FOOD,NO HEAT,NO ELECTRICITY, NO WATER, ETC. HOPE THAT EVERYBODY HAS SURVIVAL TRAINING. I WONDER IF THE MORON PROGRESSIVES,(LOONEY LEFT) HAS EVER CONSIDERED THIS.

    It has only been a few months since the CEO of Apple literally told a BLACK BLOWHARD Senator to GO TO HELL,and he will continue to operate Apple as the board chooses. He added that if the FED will bring the Apple tax rate to single digits he might consider bringing Apple back to America…….there was no more questions asked by the BLACK BLOWHARD.

  8. Breaking: Governor Perry to Send 1000 National Guard to the Border

    “Watch Obama spit bricks…”

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry is set to announce Monday that 1,000 U.S. National Guard troops will be deployed to the Rio Grande Valley, according to an internal memo detailing the plan obtained on Sunday.

    State Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen, confirmed that Perry is set to announce the deployment on Monday.

    “Gov. Perry plans to hold a press conference tomorrow at 2 p.m. and he is calling up the National Guard to help out on the border,” Hinojosa said Sunday evening. “Of course, we are opposed to bringing up the National Guard. We do not need to militarize the border. These are families and children. We need to manage the situation.”

    The National Guard troops will be deployed to the Valley to join the Texas Department of Public Safety in its recent surge to combat human smuggling and drug trafficking amid the influx of mostly Central Americans illegally crossing the Rio Grande.

    “This is not a militarization of the border,” the memo states. “The DPS and the National Guard are working to keep any drug and human trafficking south of (U.S. Highway) 83 and with the goal of keeping any smuggling from entering major highways to transport East/West/and North.”


  9. Old Sailor,
    Recently I heard that Walgreens wants to relocate to Europe. That big swooshing sound with money and jobs going abroad is to be expected in light of the higher business tax and bevy of regulations in the U.S. Only another way of destroying us. Sec. of Treasury, Jack Lew, has appealed to U.S. businesses to be more patriotic and pay the higher taxes. How crazy is this guy? Oh, well, we already know the answer to that question.

    Good morning Zach, et al.

  19. TINA…..good question, you ask; ” Why is a Palestinian so important?”

    Answer……because they are sitting on a huge oil reserve in the GAZA strip.


  21. Exactly, RMinNC. If we stopped importing Arab oil, they would have less money to fund terrorists with.

  22. The liberals say the only solution to the Palestinian crisis is a political solution. Actually, the only solution is a military solution where Israel is allowed to wipe out Hamas. If Kerry tries to get a cease fire, only Israel will stop firing. Hamas will continue its terror and we’ll see this whole song and dance again. I say let the IDF do its job. When Condi Rice asked Israel to stop its war against Hezbollah, she only saved the terrorists who now have imported some 40,000 rockets from Iran to terrorize Israel with. When Ms. Rice asked Israel to leave the Gaza strip, Hamas imported or manufactured over 10,000 rockets to terrorize Israel with. Cease fires only help the terrorists.

  23. TINA….

    I have to agree with your solution……your a very smart girl !

  24. Why doesn’t Obama or Kerry care about American children and American citizens? Kerry is rushing to the Middle East to save Palestinian children used as human shields by Hamas. Yet, Obama won’t rush to Chicago to stop children from being shot there, and media pundits say little. All Obama does is whine about gun control. Rather than trying to stop the gang violence in Chicago, Obama would rather golf. Rather than trying to save our people and ambassador in Benghazi, Obama goes to a fundraiser. Rather than going to the border to see the immigration crisis and the immigrants who will clog our hospitals and school system endangering the health and the education of American children, Obama goes to a fundraiser. If bombs are going off in Israel, or if three Israeli teens are killed, or if a Jewish baby has their throat slit by Palestinian terrorists, Obama goes fundraising. But if a Palestinian is killed when Israel is trying to defend itself, the whole world riots and protests, and the media pundits rant against Israel. Such bigots against Jews and Israel they are.

  25. Thanks, RMinNC.

  26. Tina……..
    The primary reason why the Palistinians are applauded for what they do is because the world’s morons think that they are ALLAH,and that Allah is GREAT! The twisted Arab logic is worldwide and has been for many centuries,and as I mentioned the IDIOTS of our world think it is all true. Hell they don’t even read their KORAN either. All of their SICK,MURDEROUS NATURE has been TAUGHT to them,and as long as we have total morons among humanity,the morons will believe that UP is DOWN…….because the morons do not posess the the intelligence to discern the difference.

  27. Tina…….
    I think that it is high time that the American public realised that Soetoro,is cut from the same cloth as was the BASTARDS who flew aircraft into the WTT,and MURDERED nearly 3000 people in the process. In reality the BASTARD who occupies the WACKEY HOUSE is in fact ….ONE OF THE MURDERERS. Why else would he stand asiden and do nothing when his muslim friends are murdering innocent people. You only need to watch.him. Then turn and take a very close look at the people who continue to support him. The truth stands out ….prominently.

  28. I totally agree, oldsailor82.

  29. …..AND NOW…….
    The STUPID Russian bear has finally ripped open a bee’s nest in which some very IMPORTANT BEES live…..and it was a nest which extends internationally. Now there are millions of warrior bees who are really POd,and before he is able to hide he is going to suffer a hell of a lot of stings, administered by the VIPs of the international hive. Right now he is stumbling around trying to come up with a direction to run, but there is NOWHERE to run ,or hide. He is caught between a rock and a hard place. He keeps rearing up on his hind legs and growling,but his growls are not going to bring back the 298 people whose lives were ended by a GODDAM missile which he chose to supply to a lot of “DUMKOPFS” who then used their new toy to murder those innocent people. I am praying very hard that ALL of the bastards who done this including the accessories who provided the missile systems are prosecuted for WAR CRIMES at the Hague. Most of us know that this is not the first airliner shot down by the Russians as a result of errant political zeal harbored by Russian militants of MORON level intelligence.
    Milosevich didn’t get away with his “ETHNIC CLEANSING”nor did Hitler. Now it is time that the Hague stepped into it. There was at least 23 people from the Netherlands aboard the aircraft,which was flying a course which had been assigned to him, that had been deemed safe.

  30. If the various countries whose citizens were aboard 17, do not collectively file a complaint with the ICC, they are crazy themselves. That is exactly what should have happened when the KOREAN AIR 747 was shot down, his strobes were operating as well as his transponders. In fact a Russian fighter pilot who was one of several who had been scrambled, radioed to his base that he could see the aircraft’s strobe lights. A airplane whose pilot is hell bent upon bombing a target DOESN’T fly with STROBE LIGHTS flickering. The Russians had to know this yet they chose to shoot the aircraft down with an air to air missile. Perhaps this compounded by the latest will be enough to get the attention of the ICC. I am not sure but I believe that the 298 aboard the 777,and as I recall 250 on the 747brings the total number of innocent people murdered by Russia to 548.

  31. oldsailor82

    It will be a big surprise to me if the flight recorders of the aircraft will ever be turned over to the US. In addition the SLIMES who shot the aircraft down, proceeded to rob the dead,take their credit cards,etc. What sort of human being does that sort of thing? Such a persons are worse than SLIME. They are BASTARDS. I personally believe that there will never be an investigation of the pieces of the aircraft. The crash site was violated almost immediately,by the alleged Separatists. I also believe that we already know enough to justify nailing the perpetrators to crosses where they should die, and be allowed to remain, and ROT………in full view of the PUBLIC.

    In my opinion, it is because of propaganda by the Muslims. The Muslims spend an inordinate amount of time practicing taqiyya against infidels. Lying to achieve their goals is a way of life. Honesty is not in their playbook. They are nothing but trouble making criminals as far as I am concerned. They kill Jews and Christians in the name of Allah, and claim they are superior over them. The superiority issue can only be dealt with one way, just as it was during the Crusades, kill those that would kill you. If I were president their ability to kill and persecute anybody would be dealt with swiftly and without regard for collateral damage. In order to remove a cancer viable flesh must be sacrificed, I suggest surgery, using nuclear weapons in a strategic bombing pattern, starting with Irans’ leadership, and military. Leave them reeling, and unable to do anything but struggle for survival, only then will they leave the rest of the world alone. Next bomb goes to Mecca, on their biggest holiday, get em while they are concentrated, then off to Qatar,Yemen,Nigeria,and Gaza, goal being,the elimination of Jihad BS, and Muslim influence on an otherwise peaceful Earth.,d.cGE


    Have We Got A Conspiracy for You – 9/11? JFK? Obama’s Citizenship?

    ………Forty-one percent (41%) of Republicans believe Obama is not an American citizen, compared to 21% of unaffiliateds and 11% of Democrats. Just over 20% of Republicans and unaffiliated adults also are not sure, but only seven percent (7%) of those in the president’s party share that doubt.

  35. The Ground Hog has eaten all of my Five O’clock vegetables. The dank dampness of dawn emits an odor of their weakness…and they’re all gone.

    Goodafternoon All…

    “That I was poor and without means seemed to me the most bearable part of it, but it was harder that I was numbered among the nameless, that I was one of the millions whom chance permits to live or summons out of existence without even their closest neighbors condescending to take any notice of it. In addition, there was difficulty which inevitably arose from my lack of schooling (and inexperience).

    After two days of agonized pondering and reflection, I finally came to the conviction that I had to take this step.

    It was the most decisive resolve of my life. From here there was and could be no turning back.”

    Adolf H. was then and there enrolled as the seventh member…of the GWP.

    Now time warp forward to the Genesis of our fly molest’d and seemingly confused leader. His weakness peered through at the Chicago styled breakfast he attended with Defrock’d Father Mike Pflger. O’bama spoke with EARNEST ease (with Father Pflger) about how he knew GOD was directing his actions to become the next US President. This is why O’bama cares little about polls and criticism…He really believes he is on a mission from GOD (and here I thought The Blues Brothers were only given those special missions). And he has Rasputin Himmler Jarrett to stoke and stroke his wry God like complex and ego. Shelter’d and fed; all the while be minister’d to by a hypocrite elitist in an inviolable oval office.

    AND ALL OF US ARE ENABLING THIS BEHAVIOR. Doestoevsky wrote an essay concerning Liars. He said that if an innocent listens to the liar long enough they too will eventually become a lair. Just in the simplicity of enabling the liar to continue in and with their deception.

    Our feckless leader has come out (imitating Reagan on number of days waiting to speak about an international Russian incident) and now said the whole world should vigorously investigate Putin and his rocket shooting rebels. (But ohhhh doesn’t the anger rise if you try to investigate him or his wick’d ways) Give me a break…all the bodies have been cleaned up; by the Russian separatist. The black boxes have been gathered; by the Russian separatist. And all evidence is in the hands of the Russian separatist in their militarily controlled town of Torez. They, the Russian separatist, said 200 of the bodies were on trains in refrigerated cars…yesterday morning the refer units on those refer cars ran out of gas. Those bodies have gone through extreme elements in a very short period of time…think they are moldy by now??? and where are the other 98 bodies???…I am unable to place them…organ donors??? Nothin’ like a pancake kidney at a reduced price. A little liver with a side of thigh??? Who knows…only a select few will ever really know the truth…To bad we couldn’t get Vincent and Theo to testify…someway or somehow.

    One other thing before I sign off…What is the deal with our new minister of propaganda…Josh Earnest??? You can’t make this stuff up…here is the propaganda cog spewing fecal matter upon the world to hear and really in the end he was just joshing us with earnest. Inflippingcredible.

    Does anyone know what you call a fly without wings???

    a walk…

    Citizens for the Constitution;
    20 July, 2014

    This is a call to action! 3 minutes of your time is all we ask – for 3 phone calls … with the words to speak provided.

    On June 24, 2014, a judge in Tennessee held a ‘Kangaroo Court Show Trial’ wherein the grand jurors were intimidated and compromised; the prosecutor misrepresented the facts; the judge (Jon Kerry Blackwood) was predisposed and biased against the defendant, LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick USN (Ret); and there was no accuser! Unbelievably, it concluded with a verdict of Guilty of ‘extortion’ (although nothing was ‘extorted’ from anybody) and ‘aggravated perjury’ (although the only persons who lied were the Judge and the prosecutor)!

    LCDR Fitzpatrick was found ‘GUILTY’ of these crimes that were never committed, and is to be sentenced on 18 August 2014 … for trying to exercise his (and your) Constitutionally guaranteed 1st Amendment right to report crimes of Judicial Misconduct to a Grand Jury.

    We all must be outraged by this gross miscarriage of justice and attack on our 1st Amendment rights! You can read the details as reported by Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email here:

    3 minutes of your time is all we ask – for 3 phone calls … with the words to speak provided.

    We are therefore asking everyone who is physically and mentally able to make three quick calls, preferably weekdays between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm EST (so you get a live person to talk to):

    U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte: 202-225-3951
    U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy: 202-224-7703

    Suggested words for a statement to the telephone receptionist for each of these two committees:

    “My name is ___________. As a concerned Citizen, I feel it is my duty to report to you that a jury in Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District has recently criminalized a citizen’s attempt to take a petition for the redress of grievances to a grand jury.

    On June 24, 2014, honorably retired US Navy Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick was found Guilty of crimes that were never committed: ‘extortion’ – where nothing was extorted, and ‘aggravated perjury’ – where there was no proof of any perjury.

    All other State agencies and the Knoxville FBI have refused to take action against these and other well-documented cases of civil rights violations against Tennessee citizens. It is the duty of your committee to investigate and take appropriate action concerning these violations of Constitutionally guaranteed rights of American Citizens.”

    Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood: 865-594-6118

    Suggested words for a statement to the telephone receptionist for Judge Blackwood:

    “My name is __________. As a concerned Citizen, with certain Constitutionally guaranteed rights, I demand that the June 24 verdicts in the Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick case be vacated. Because of the egregious violations of law, lack of evidence and conflict of interest exhibited during the trial, the entire case should be dismissed and the jurors prosecuted for malfeasance. Thousands of us concerned Citizens have also so notified both the U.S. House and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairmen of this miscarriage of justice.”

    3 minutes of your time is all we ask!

    High-Level NSA Whistleblower Says Blackmail is a Huge – Unreported – Part of Mass Surveillance

  44. I think I posted this to late on the previous article…still trying to figure out the dynamics of blog entries…

    Good evening all…

    Citizen, we too shall overcome these burdens placed at our children’s fee…

    On the Link to the economist they are writing that Putin made a call to O’bama before the news broke about Flight MH17 going down…

    …this doesn’t seem plausible. We have video of the plane going down (with no smoke trail) then bursting into flames. Which in turn was posted on an AP site as the plane and the corpse’ were still burning.The Economist goes on to say that four hours before the act of war took place they had reporting of the BUK system being moved into place. This portion I find credible…but where they write about Putin calling O’bama before news broke…something isn’t quite right there. Has the Economist finally given into the indivisible defeat? If that isn’t rewriting history as it happens I’m not sure what else would qualify. Here is a bunch of Oxford ghost writers trying to secure a piece of History to their fashion and liking. The one last source of commercial news…which has been in publication since 1843…selling out to the world economic handlers. Everybody owns somebody. And Barclays IS Everybody. A free person might think: since all of The Economist’ writers are anonymous they would use an alethic mode of style to write freely and report objectively. I think it was back in The Economist’ 2012 Christmas or NewYear special edition in which they had a big 12 or 15 spread on ‘Secret Organizations’ which control the World’s economy and how those “Leaders” really work for us. I knew then that it was coming…The Great Fire Sale of the 21st Century.

    Now here is another jim dandy for sure:…

    The part of the article I don’t understand is why the pilot would follow the instructions of Air Control? They (the pilots) had to know about the 12 planes recently and previously shot down in that area. Another fine mess…I would go fishin’ again but I ran outta worms. Back down the rabbit hole we go.

    I went looking for the antinomy of Hope and this is what I found:

    Evan Sayet, using Courage to speak truth to power. This video is a little over an hour. I promise, you will not be disappointed. The whole hour is Phenomenal!!! Please do not be misled by the /liberals-media. If you are a Patriotic Red-blooded American who believes in conservative mores (the mores being a touch of Sumner with his libertarian beliefs)…then please give this hour to yourself as a gift. Evan Sayet WAS a hardcore liberal writer for Bill Maher. Now Mr. Sayet speaks out on his own about the Liberal establishment and tells the tale about all their dirty little ploys and secrets. How this establishment uses the tools of psychology to get what they want. Fascinating. Mr. Sayet’s book: Kindergarten of Eden: How Modern Liberals Think is interesting too. The video is brilliant tho’.

    Citizen Wells…I pay tribute to you…and by doing so I will be writing in un-think vocabulary C.

    All truthful things today being contemporary; are communicably induced, to turn from remembrance (Fidelity) of their traditions into a fictional history being portrayed by reduced mediums. And still, these inducing agents have no hold of bias with Greek Allegory. It is the Higher Order of thought which looks to those things invisible over those which are visible. Through your blog and the many who post…there is a higher order of comprehension within these contemporary truths lain before us.

    The ‘other speech’ which can only be read and understood by free thinking people. The folks who lived outside of the dusty antique shop…They were allow’d their freedom of thought….just so long as they stay’d living in the ramshackle of the gutter. The un-high rent quarters. The craftily painted ‘Shop’, is picturesque of Time long ago. A shop affording comfort and those things salubrious; to the mind, as well as the body. A shop which also piques the curiosity of illusion with artifacts of unseen things. An allegorical reference to things past and how precious memories really are. Un~broken laws and un~spoil’d traditions. Way, way back when there wasn’t a POLITICAL need to peer over one’s shoulder (which now`a`days it is more of a Lear..ov’r one’s shoulder). How only a secret meeting place becomes clandestine when others are watching maliciously over you. The over-seers of the air we breathe. The other day I was somewhere and a gentleman made reference to the Gov’t charging for the air we breathe and I said, ” No, that’s not quite right…they will charge, but it will be for the exhale; not the inhale.” One day we will all have little meter’d masks we will breathe through (and if they place one on our face you know where they will most assuredly place another)…there will be a cyber account linked to your allotted credit account…so long as you don’t breathe to much and don’t break wind to often you still might be able to retire at the mellow age of 102. This world has come un~glued…new word…un~world. Back to Vocab C…

    Or, let’s step off into the abyss and possibly create a vocabulary using Orwells’, ’1984′ and Huxley’s, ‘Brave New World’…this should be fun…so I just drop it through the shoot which is really a test tube and turn it downside up to come out with an anagram and a homemade acrostic. As it was sputter’d way, way back: P R E S I D E N T B A R A C K O B A M A shaken up and poured out is: A N A R A B B A C K E D I M P O S T E R

    The Homemade was of course conceived while on Holiday in the oubliette:
    Ol’ Vole Noone, helped nail Parson’s Hall Laws. (I’ll let you all figure this one out if you so choose…this is still a free country. Ol’ Glory is waving outside the kitchen door right now as I write this.)

    The big~E for mee,,, is 1913…A Time when are Un-President, Wilson (who later shared a role with Liberal Hanks…Castaway) was un~man’d by Warburg, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt and I’m sure above them was the Rothschild. How can this country survive a perpetual lie for over 100years??? The Fed was form’d in 1913 and 100 years of being in complete control of the economy which is the breath of all who breathe; how is it, they finally come out with a statement stating that they are going to periodically come out and make public statements??? WTF!…COME ON!…this can’t be true and real…a body fades back to Cogito ergo s…You literally, by fiat, CONTROL the daily bread ration of the masses. Keep completely silent; the only utterance is sotto voce. Then 100 years later finally come out and make the first public statement about making statements and haven’t heard one stated word of another statement since. Funny how the Un-FED, keeps feeding it’s gluttonous self while un~feeding the multitudes.

    Will we ever go back to a time of Conscious Morality??? The Golden Rule and A Kingdom of Conscience. Where have all the moral and intellectual virtues hid themselves???

    I’m sure you’ve heard about anti-Israel protests in London & Paris, but you probably haven’t heard which side this Gaza-born journalist thinks Arab leaders are rooting for:

    Thanks for all your info, bob. Very interesting.
    Hi Tina,
    The usurper provides us with a lot that needs to be shared, unfortunately. The amount of lawlessness is staggering, and the policies are destructive to our economy. I’d bet on a huge economical surge, once we get rid of the usurper, and the democrat thieves.

    Did you see the post about NSA blackmail?

    That is, I believe, how Roberts was persuaded to say yes to obamacare, and the “IT’S A TAX” scheme everyone was sure would stop the law. I don’t think for a second the usurper would not use blackmail to get what he wants.

    Thanks…I think. Lousy old tomato soup and saltines isn’t even sitting right after that.

    The singer can’t sing.

    I wonder if Fauxcahontas, a/k/a Liawatha, will run on the Sitting Bull ticket; Lord knows she spouts enough bull as it is.

    If elected, however, just think that we’ll not only have our first woman President, but also a blue-eyed Native American with high cheekbones all in one package. The Cherokee Nation will be so proud that one of their ‘own’ commands the highest office in the land.

    (end sarcasm)

    I knew you would love the Fauxcahontas, “You Didn’t Build That”, candidate video.

    God help us if she should ever attract more than the 45 people in that room.

  53. OMIGOSH!
    This video was hard to watch but it reveals that idiots and racists with a microphone can spew hatred and lies that perpetuate racism.

    AND NOW……….
    ……our standards of measure are being attacked. The LUNATIC LEFT NOW are advocating that America should be using the METRIC SYSTEM OF MEASURE, (dry,and liquid,and linear measure as well.) This includes the INCH ,FOOT,YARD, ROD,and MILE. pressure,vacuum, and anything else to which measure can be applied. Fractional drill bits will become millimeters,larger sizes will become centimeters,etc. Altitude will be meters,the fathom will become meters. Weight will become,grams,kilograms,and milograms,etc. REMEMBER?……WE ARE BEING FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED…………..WITHOUT LOGICAL REASON…..and driven by INSANITY,IGNORANCE,and PLAIN STUPIDITY.

  56. White Flags Mysteriously Replace American Flags Atop Brooklyn Bridge

    Surrender!!! One comment from story:

    AP Update****Obama is scheduled to meet the Mexican delegation today in a ceremony on the Brooklyn Bridge.

  57. AND NOW……..
    …….the sick,and mentally twisted component of our scientific community want to create SUPERMEN,and SUPERWOMEN,who are NEUTERGENDERED just as Hitler wanted to do…….except now they want to CLONE these superhumans. Recently there was a scientific seminar involving these MANIACAL persons who now say that they possess the understanding,as well as the technological capability to do it,and after such cloning,all natural human beings will be STERILISED, (FORCIBLY IF NECESSARY). This allegedly will eliminate all diseases,and the superperson will be absolutely PERFECT,both physically,and mentally. They will possess programmable mentalities,which will circumvent any use of logic,or the ability to reason. They will be programmed to fill critical job applications,and they can be fully programmed in less than 2 hours with a complete formal education,and work specialties. In effect they will be humanoid robots,and will not have any emotional capabilities. The alleged scientists also showed certain implantable electronic devices which will control the overall function of the robot. They will also be devoid of any religous beliefs. Get ready because this ROBOT might soon be lurking just around the corner, but the scientists have not yet figured out how to stop a person from SHOOTING them, and destroying them by other methods. So in reality they ARE NOT SUPERMEN,OR SUPERWOMEN but creations of humankind which are totally skewed from real human function. Perhaps the HOMOSEXUALS will create special robots to perform all of the DEVIATED practices,and NOT HAVE the POSSIBILITY OF CONTRACTING AIDS. They will NOT be created by GOD, so they will have no understanding of God worship. There goes Christianity. Will they be programmed to do the MUSLIM thing? Hell if you no longer have the capability to breed such MANIACS…..JUST MANUFACTURE THEM! But what happens when all the HUMAN scientists are clones as well? There goes HUMANITY itself. So maybe the WANNABE GODs should redirect their efforts into devising ways to SAVE HUMANITY from disappearing from the face of the earth,and ways to reinforce Christianity ITSELF, because the attack which is presently being directed at Christianity is mere childs play when compared to what is coming. You will either become a worshiper of ISLAM or you will be put to death. Then we will once again see the CRUSADES. Humanity has lost all sense of direction!

  61. Court deals blow to Ocare: Fed appeals court panel says most Obamacare subsidies illegal

    Breaking: Obama administration says health care subsidies will keep flowing despite court ruling


    A federal appeals court has struck down a key way that Obamacare helps millions buy health insurance.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that individuals cannot use tax credits or subsidies to buy health insurance on federally-run Obamacare exchanges. The divided three-judge panel said those cost-sharing subsidies can only be used through state-run health exchanges.

    The decision could make it hard for millions to get coverage in the 34 states that don’t have health insurance marketplaces.

    The ruling is expected to be appealed.

    MUST SEE VIDEO>>> Border Security Interview: Border Agents More Afraid Of Government Than Illegal Criminals
    This retired BORDER AGENT is exactly right……there is a PERFECT
    SH*T STORM brewing right here within the borders of the United States…all because of the foreign national sitting in the White House, taking orders from some “shadow non-elected elite government” seeking to impose the North American Union on the people of the United States…

    The part that really should wake people up is when he talked to the agent working in Mexico and was told that 5 Russian Mafia groups were working the mobs in Mexico and responsible for a lot of the violence in Mexico and crossing the border, scheduled to “come to America” soon..

    When the sh*t does hits the fan (and it will) within our own borders from California to the Carolinas…it will be to late to say, “I told you so”, and too damn late for finger pointing……..and the average American citizen will not be able to fight his own governments actions, and all the illegal activity of thiose who have walked across the Mexican border unopposed because our government wanted them too…..

    Then we can rightfully be called the North American Banana Republic because we will have earned the title by our actions and deeds.

    Thanks for the video, Observer…..something all Americans should see….before it’s too late. I have saved it too send to my many friends……

    “A U.S. appeals court ruled Tuesday that tax laws prohibit those who use federal exchanges from receiving subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, a ruling that has the potential to unravel much of the landmark legislation designed to get health coverage to all.”

    Thanks for the info, Bob. It’s scary, and it’s unreal that the media would hide all this info on Obama. I mean, they must be blackmailing a lot of folks, judges, newspaper people, government officials, military guys, etc.

    Now we need a freedom of information act against the LA Times who is rumored to be hiding the whitey tape and the tape where Obama was toasting “death to Israel”or something like that. Amazing the press would hide all this stuff, even though they are raging liberals. They are suppose to be Americans too.


  68. bob strauss

    Amazing the press would hide all this stuff, even though they are raging liberals. They are suppose to be Americans too.
    That to me is when it becomes treason.

  69. Free Republic is reporting today that 90% of the media is owned by 5 corporations.

  70. bob strauss

    This Senior White House Advisor could be the missing link in Benghazi scandal. But the story is much, much deeper than that…

  71. This just came my way from my dear aunt…

    The truth to power is overwhelming.

    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

    Written by a USMC Vet. (I can’t argue with any of it. Passing it along as it was received.)
    He wrote:

    The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012) in Ohio .
    The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

    A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Environmental Extremists, the Media, Hollywood , uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America .

    The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard.

    The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

    Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states,
    and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing
    “post Sandy ” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother
    Teresa status.

    Aside: With the way the polls were run and voter fraud, he didn’t need any help!

    People like us are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

    You will never again out-vote these people.
    It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed the Progressives to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

    Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this gene ration has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt”, political correctness, and having a “TAKER” attitude…

    An American Veteran………………….. Semper-Fi

    Got the guts to pass it on?

    This is what it takes to get this country back to being a great nation, as this once was.

    “When the People fear the Government, there is tyranny,
    When the Government fears the people, there is Liberty …”

  72. The USMC vet is absolutely correct…..take it from a USARMY retired vet….
    It won’t be a walk in the woods either…there will be lots of skin in the game.

  73. BOB STRUSS…..

    The position stated in the video you just posted about Valerie Jarrett has been my position all along…..

    The UNELECTED Jarett is calling all the shots in the White House for Obama….a blind man can see this…..Jarett was behind Benghazi and those in a position of authority know this, yet tremble in fear from Jarett……

    NSA blackmail is my guess, but I wouldn’t rule out usurper death squads, for when the going gets tough. This guy is a criminal, and he will not react like a poor guy who got mistakenly elected, the enemy will fight to the death to maintain control over the usurpation. What happens after 2016 is anyones’ guess.

    Amazing how the AD starts with: ESCORT SERVICES…

    Procurement Type: Request for Information (RFI)/Sources Sought

    A. Introduction

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States. ICE is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air. Escort services include, but are not limited to, assisting with: transferring physical custody of UAC from DHS to Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier), property inventory, providing juveniles with meals, drafting reports, generating transport documents, maintaining/stocking daily supplies, providing and issuing clothing as needed, coordinating with DHS and HHS staff, travel coordination, limited stationary guard services to accommodate for trip disruptions due to inclement weather, faulty equipment, or other exigent circumstances. In emergency situations, the Contractor shall be called on to provide temporary shelter locations (such as trailers) with shower facilities for juveniles who are pending placement with HHS when bed space is unavailable nationwide for extended periods of time. The Contractor shall provide temporary guard services and other support as necessary during these emergencies.

    In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s). While this may not require each employee to be fluent in all of the encountered languages, personnel should have access to and knowledge of translation services.

    B. ICE Standards/Special Requirements

    The contractor is required to perform in accordance with the ICE Performance Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS 2011), all ICE policies related to the transportation of juveniles (see the ICE Family Residential Standards at as well as the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, and the Homeland Security Act of 2002. In cases where other standards conflict with DHS/ICE Policy or Standards, DHS/ICE Policy and Standards will prevail. ICE Inspectors will conduct periodic inspections to assure compliance of the aforementioned standards.

    Personnel shall have the knowledge and experience to transport individual children with special needs. Often times, children with special needs may require a transportation method that is time saving and direct, i.e. by commercial airline. Contractor shall also provide for accompanying medical care. Additionally, due to exigent circumstances, the Contractor shall be required to transport juveniles via ground to HUB airports or other staging areas that are not located within the area of initial apprehension.

    The Contractor shall follow a fully developed training curriculum and transporting staff shall have the highest level of competency possible. Areas of training shall include, but are not limited to the following: Airport rules and regulations for travelers, crisis intervention, child development, working with and transporting youth with special needs, transporting youth with behavioral problems, CPR & First Aid training, non-secured UAC policy and procedures and the implementation of contingency plans in the event of a crisis during transport, which include de-escalation techniques.

    Background Investigations and Suitability Screenings will be conducted on all Contract Employees by the Office of Professional Responsibility and Personnel Security Unit (OPR-OSU).
    The Contractor shall agree that each employee working on this contract will successfully pass the DHS Employment Eligibility (E-Verify) program operated by USICS to establish work authorization and U.S. Citizenship.
    Employees must reside in the United States.

    C. Contract Type

    Act is applicable to this acquisition. All required clauses, provisions will be included in the solicitation and resulting contractual instrument.

    The anticipated release date of the solicitation is March 3, 2014. The solicitation closing date will be thirty (30) days after release of the Request for Proposal (RFP).

    Projected Set-Aside: All business sizes are welcome to participate; however, ICE is trying to determine small business interest, particularly HubZone companies.

    This Gov’t ad was posted two different times that I am aware of. Once in January 2014….days after John Podesta was brought back on~board by All~Knowing Jarrett. The second date is Late May to Early June 2014.

    What I ask is this: Why all the present fund raising trips??? He is building up enormous amounts of Capital and continued support…Jarrett and Axelrod have arranged the meetings just like Goehring did for Adolph with the several German magnates. And I’m sure everyone is aware of what took place after those meetings…Undoubtedly…they have their next mark to strike off their: To Change List

    Yesterday, 7/21/2014…O’bama spoke about Biden and Hillary and how good both would be running for the office of President…then goes onto say how he doesn’t understand why they would want to “embarrass themselves” by running for office. That they would be lowering themselves to do so. Folks…this animal isn’t going anywhere….he is staying put…Why all the fund raising? What’s he building right now???

  84. Dennis Miller

    Looks like John Roberts is going to have to save it twice.

  85. While Christians are being ethnically cleansed and purged from the middle east a new Berchtesgaden is being purchased…
