“Of the approx. 6 million new employments since Obama took office in January 2009, 4,511,000, 75 percent, were Hispanic/Latino!”…Citizen Wells

“In today’s labor market, there are nearly 1 million “missing” young workers—potential workers who are neither employed nor actively seeking work (and are thus not counted in the unemployment rate) because job opportunities remain so scarce. If these missing workers were in the labor market looking for work, the unemployment rate of workers under age 25 would be 18.1 percent instead of 14.5 percent.”…Economic Policy Institute May 1, 2014

From Market Watch March 1, 2015.

“Jobless recovery is now the job-led recovery”

“The easiest way to explain why the U.S. economy appears poised for its best growth in years can be found in a pair of words that have become more and more common: Help wanted.

Over the past year the U.S. has cranked out an average 259,000 new jobs a month, including almost 1 million positions in the last three months alone. That’s the strongest increase in employment in a decade and a half.

Nor is there any sign hiring is about to crumple. The U.S. added 252,000 jobs in January and economists polled by MarketWatch predict a milder but still-healthy 235,000 gain in February. The unemployment rate is seen dipping to 5.6% from 5.7%, though the official figure excludes millions of people who’ve given up looking for work and those who can only find part-time jobs.

In any case, the spike in hiring has set the stage for faster economic growth even though there’s little evidence yet that workers are receiving sharply higher wages. More Americans working means more people eating out, more car sales, more home buying and so forth — even if people who already had a job don’t increase their spending at all.

Better yet, that will spur businesses to raise their own spending.

“All the gains in the labor market have generated plenty of momentum that will support more consumer spending,” said Sam Bullard, senior economist at Wells Fargo. “There will come a point when businesses will need to expand to keep up with the pace of orders and sales.””

Here is the truth:

Job recovery of what jobs?

It is questionable if we have recovered the jobs lost prior to Obama taking office.

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.

New entrants to the labor market, those turning 16, netted by deaths yields at least 9 million new workers.

The US Labor Dept. states that we have approx. 15.5 million more in the labor force since January 2009.

4.7 million migrants were given work permits and God only knows how many more illegals entered the country.

There was an increase of over 12 million not in the labor force since Obama took office.

This is one reason that millennials are having a tough time.

Of the jobs touted in the article above for last year, 1.3 million went to Hispanic/Latinos. Almost as much as White Americans.

And from the CEO of Gallup, Jim Clifton.

“The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment”

“Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.”

    “A LOST COUNTRY THAT WAS

    by Sharon Rondeau

    (Feb. 27, 2015) — On the Peter Boyles Show on Friday morning, the former Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, now Dr. Terry Lakin, told Boyles that after he questioned Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility for office while serving as a medical doctor in the U.S. Army, several congressmen told him that they also “didn’t know, either” who Obama is.

    Boyles asked Lakin to talk about his upbringing and background, after which which Lakin described a happy childhood growing up in Colorado, where he now practices medicine.

    AN OLD SAYING FROM THE MIDDLE EAST……

    There is an old saying.

    If Islam was to lay down its weapons in the Middle East, there would be no more wars in the region.

    If Israel was to lay down its weapons in the Middle East, there would be no more Israel in the region.

    When a threat against Israel rises, time and time again the small Jewish nation launching a first strike has saved them from annihilation.

    I hope Bebi pushes this point tomorrow……I’m sure O’bozo will be hiding in the closet of the White House along with Val Jarrett, with his blackberry listening to every word…..and he will also have Air Force One warming up on the tarmack in case he has to exit real fast……..

    “Which brings me to the other thing I noticed in the data, which is that in spite of the steady trend of improvement for the past 4 years, in terms of a truer measure of employment, the US is still in a Depression. That’s right, not a recession, a Depression. There has been virtually no recovery in the percentage of Americans with full time jobs since the pits of the crash in 2008.

    Admittedly it’s a selective Depression, but if you are among the selected, your suffering is real. And the drag that millions of unemployed Americans exert on the economy is real. The downward pressure they put on middle class wages is real. Jobs that paid well in the past no longer do. With labor oversupplied, the plutocrats, empowered by the courts and friendly legislators have wiped out the bargaining power of labor in the economy. ZIRP/QE have encouraged unproductive speculation, not job creation. So there are simply far too many millions of Americans so selected to be the losers, to experience the Depression. All of the money printing in the world, all of the ZIRP, has not helped them and has not reduced their numbers. Nor can it ever do so.”

    “Fewer Americans born in the U.S. have jobs now than were employed to November 2007, despite a working-age population growth of 11 million.”

    “In November 2014, one in every five U.S. jobs was held by a foreign-born worker, up from one-in-six jobs in January 2010, according to federal data highlighted by the Center for Immigration Studies.

    “Since November 2007, the number of working legal and illegal migrants has risen by two million, from 23.1 million in November 2007 to 25.1 million in November 2014.”

    “All of the net gain in employment since 2007 has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). … Native [aged 16 to 65] employment has still not returned to pre-recession levels, while immigrant employment already exceeds pre-recession level,” said a Dec. 19 statement from the group.”

    “The second lie we’re being told is that we have a jobs recovery. Really?

    In June 288,000 new jobs were created. Sounds great, right? The media trumpeted that number. No one bothered to explain that the net positive 288,000 jobs breaks down to 523,000 good, full-time jobs lost and over 800,000 crappy part-time jobs gained.

    Take New York City. From June 2008 until this spring 2014, 191,000 low-wage jobs were created in New York City versus just 3,745 middle-class jobs ($45,000 per year or higher).

    One hundred ninety-one thousand versus 3,745 tells one heck of a story. The media choose to hide the fact that middle-class jobs are headed for extinction. They never mention that if you want a job in this Obama economy, you’d better be prepared to flip burgers, clean toilets, mow lawns, or tend bar … part-time.”

    “2015 Layoffs Blow the Cover Off the Job “Recovery””

    “Today’s jobs report was missing a key number in U.S. employment: the staggering total of 2015 layoffs that have been announced.

    Instead, the U.S. Labor Department report hyped that employers added 257,000 jobs last month, capping the best three months of gains since 1997.

    But the real U.S. jobs story right now is that companies have delivered thousands of pink slips in 2015. A new report this week from Challenger, Gray & Christmas said the number of planned layoffs by U.S. companies hit a nearly two-year high of 53,041 in January. That’s up 63% from the previous month.”

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

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

    “Mass Layoffs Data Discontinued |

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

    Good afternoon sir,
    I learned many decades ago how to see through the lies of others. I have adhered to my learning through the years, and explored the alleged past of Barry Soetoro. In so doing I spent quite a bit of my own money to gain access to the PUBLIC INFORMATION DATABASES. I learned over the years that the public information databases are the official repositories into which millions of bits of legals information POURS as each day passes. The PIDBs are ALWAYS up to date,and can supply accurate information to virtually any query received by them. The information which SHOULD APPEAR but DOESN’T tells an often damning story. Their files are every bit as accurate as the Superior Court files, This is because the information they have is usually that which is releasesd by the courts themselves.
    In nearly three years of searching the PIDBs across America it became clear early on that Barry Soetoro has NEVER PETITIONED for a legally adjudicated name change in any Superior Court in the US. Therefore he is still legally Barry Soetoro,and is a citizen of Indonesia. This constitutes a conflict of interest,and makes him INELIGIBLE to hold the office POTUS. Further it is doubtful that he is legally married to Michelle Robinson. Both the name change petiton and application for marriage require a CERTIFIED COPY of a LEGALLY VALID Certificate of Birth in most states. I have also brought my findings to the attention of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. America has a FRAUDULENT person leading the country,who is putting 300,000,000 citizens in mortal danger. Yet a very large portion of Americans are still intent upon GUZZLING their beer,watching their porn,and doing their slimey stinking drugs 24 hours a day instead of CARING ABOUT THEIR COUNTRY. They are the SCUM at whose feet you can lay the coming demise of America.

    Classic Paul Krugman lunacy:

    “Which is where the new job numbers come in. At this point we have enough data points to compare the job recovery under President Obama with the job recovery under former President George W. Bush, who also presided over a postmodern recession but certainly never insulted fat cats. And by any measure you might choose — but especially if you compare rates of job creation in the private sector — the Obama recovery has been stronger and faster. Oh, and its pace has picked up over the past year, as health reform has gone fully into effect.”

    “Media ignores Gallup CEO’s ‘big lie’ accusation”

    “Ordinarily, when the CEO of the nation’s top polling organization charges that the numbers being cited by the president of the United States have been cooked and are not to be believed, it would be big news.

    It would be a scandal, of course, if the occupant in the White House were a Republican.

    Yet, not surprisingly, the three major news networks ignored Clifton’s “big lie” story.

    But the American people know when they are being lied to about the job market getting “better and better,” as CBS News anchor Scott Pelley said about the latest job report without challenging any of its dubious data.

    In 2014, Obama’s economy grew at a dismally weak 2.4 percent, and created relatively few full-time jobs when compared to the explosive recoveries in the 1980s or the late 1990s.

    At the end of the third year of the Reagan recovery, the economy was soaring by nearly 8 percent, and created over 1.1 million new jobs in a single month alone.

    Yet the liberal news media continues to dish out the “big lie,” asking us to believe that Obama’s anemic, snail’s pace, part-time economy is producing “a boom in jobs.””

    What the hell has happened to the Wall Street Journal?

    “The best three-month stretch of hiring since 1997 has positioned the U.S. labor market to start delivering stronger wage growth for a wider swath of Americans after more than five years of sluggish recovery from a deep recession.

    The economy created more than a million jobs over the past three months, with a steady gain of 257,000 in January and sizable upward revisions to prior months’ figures, the Labor Department said Friday. The hiring spree prompted many previously sidelined American workers to begin the job search, causing the unemployment rate to tick up a tenth of a percentage point to 5.7%.”

    OLDSAILOR82…..good afternoon my friend

    Bingo…YOUR INFORMATION IS CORRECT AND VALID…..and all the Congressmen/women and Senators, SCOTUS and federal judges in Washiungton DC know that Soetoro is an Indonesian and perhaps NOT EVEN A DAMN CITIZEN of this country…..yet

    They have all turned a deaf ear, and blind eye to our country….WHY?

    Is everyone that ‘ we the people’ have sent to Washington to represent us completely in line with the destruction to America?…Have they all been bought and paid for with 30 pieces of silver? How is it possible in all those people numbering well over 1000 that we can’t find ONE honest man willing to stand up, speak out and be counted?

    Something is terribly terribly wrong in Washington and not a damn soul is talking about it……..WHY?

    this is the greatest mystery in the history of the United States and the most dangerous period of time we have ever encountered. Yet, most people are being lead to believe we are living in the land of ‘milk and honey’….boy, are they in for a surprise.

    Then of course, we have every source of media available in this county also in bed with this foreigner….how has this happened? It appears every journalist who has questioned this usurper has suddenly come up dead or missing…..how has this happened?

    If the American people don’t soon…and I mean REAL soon, and get the answers to these questions, I am afraid America will soon be hauling down the stars and strips and replace it with something you and I do not recognize….

    When this happens, it will do no good for all the ‘me people’ to cry and moan…nor will it do any good for the rich and wealthy, nor the left leaning wingnuts to come out of the woodwork….it will be all over and those who complain about their current form of government will be shipped out to places unknown…..and never heard from again.

    Comparing this to the elimination of the Jews in Europe during World War II….and it will look like child’s play…..Hitler’s actions will be small time….

    What I cannot grasp or understand is………just how in the hell can this illegal POTUS fool 315 million people and get away with it?

    We have no legal law in this country…..we have no legal representatives in Washington……and soon…very soon, we will no more have our Constitution to fall back on….

    Illegal Aliens Committed 500 Child Sexual Assaults in North Carolina During January
    Dave Gibson 02/23/2015News

    During the month of December 2014, there were 94 illegal aliens charged with 518 various counts of sexual assault against North Carolina’s children, according to the citizens advocacy group known as NCFIRE.

    The charges range from the manufacturing of child pornography, to the rape of a 5-year-old girl, and even incest. In one incident, a 4-year-old boy was molested by a 25-year-old Mexican national, while he was attending a birthday party.

    View the sickening report in its entirety…

    While the numbers will prove rather shocking to most, anyone who has been paying attention to the epidemic of child rapes occurring in that state at the hands of illegal aliens, will not be surprised, as there have been well over 5,000 such charges filed in North Carolina over the last 14 months.

    If the snotnosed, moronic occupant of the WACKEY HOUSE has actually ordered Israeli warplanes that are aloft in the DEFENSE OF Israel,to be shot down, it would be fitting that Israel would respond in kind,and destroy any US aircraft within their airspace. The MORON at the WACKEY HOUSE could end up with a NEW ANUS,installed by Israel. The alleged leader needs to be very careful about what he says to Israel. They have been on earth a hell of a lot longer than Soetoro,or Susan Rice,and most likely have forgotten far more than Soetoro,or Rice will EVER KNOW. Further John Kerry needs to also be careful when he starts WARNING the PRIME MINISTER of any country. He could easily be seen as hostile,and end up behind bars forever in a foreign country.

  25. Hillary….What Does It Matter !!
    President? Never.

    WASHINGTON — State Department emails released through a lawsuit by Judicial Watch show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew while the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi was under way that it was being carried out by terrorists.

    Clinton blamed the attack on “rage and violence over an awful Internet video” when she spoke at a ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base on Sept. 14, 2014, as the remains of the four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were returned to the United States.

    The emails were made public Thursday by the Washington, D.C., legal watchdog group.

    “These emails leave no doubt that Hillary Clinton’s closest advisers knew the truth about the Benghazi attack from almost the moment it happened,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    “And it is inescapable that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knowingly lied when she planted the false story about ‘inflammatory material being posted on the Internet,'” Fitton said

    “Opinion: Slowing U.S. economy is inconvenient truth”

    “However, a good chunk of this slowdown traces to the unusually severe weather that struck most of the country late last year and early in this year.”

    “These deviations are most pronounced in the winter. When we have an especially harsh winter, such as most of the country is experiencing this year, it is bound to take its toll on the economy and, by extension, on the numbers as well.

    The way thing are going, it would not be surprising if the harsh winter were to reduce the first quarter’s economic growth by as much as one percentage point.

    So instead of logging in growth of, say, 2.75%, the first quarter’s GDP could well come in at 1.75% or even less.”

  37. Bibi is making Barak look like such a fool. The PM is shredding every argument the administration is making.

  38. Not one single member of the Obama Administration was at the speech, according to FOX News.

  39. AND NOW………
    ……we have just seen and heard the difference between a MORONIC CHILD,and a Jewish MAN. I applaud Netanyahu for his views,because I am one person who lived at the time of Hitler’s maniacal attempt to murder all of the world’s Jews. I was but a youngster,but old enough to understand what was going on…….I believe that if Iran inks the deal with the Wackey House, they will have a CLEAR,AND PAVED ROAD to Nuclear weapons. BIBI is exactly right.

  40. oldsoldier79

    I am almost 80 years old…..

    I have heard many speeches from the Congress…most of them have been “candy and ‘hot air”…..full of sound and fury but with very little substance.

    I can, with all honesty, now say I have heard the BEST SPEECH ever GIVEN from the halls of Congress…and it was from someone who wasn’t even a citizen.,,,but someone who was trying to extend the life of his nation….Israel…. AND PERHAPS THE ENTIRE WORLD.

    Having heard this speech, I now understand why the village idiot, Joe Biden, left town…and Barack Obama was hiding in the closet of the White House, cursing every breath Benjamin Netanyahu took ….yet still, the usurper, O’boze showed his controlled most democrats who didn’t even attend…..this should tell every American where that party stands.

    It should be ABUNDANTLY, and absolutly CLEAR THAT WHAT Mr. OBAMA IS NOW DOING IS OPENLY TREASONOUS….how else can you explain this sale out of Israel and America?

    Before O’Bozo has an opportunity to sign any Iranian deal without any approval from our Congress, ….someone had better organize a march on the WH and remove this foreign usurper who is “hell bent on destroying democracy throughout the world”.

    Wake up; America…the atomic clock is now ticking, your freedom is in the balance !!!

    …………..did anyone listen to the SPIEL of Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Rice? It amounted to another “RICE JOB”. She is obviously a member of the LIBERAL liars club. Why is the entire administration so afraid to hear what Netanyahu has to say? Could it be that it might OFFEND THE BASTARDS in TEHRAN? To that I say TOUGH SHI#. I am PRAYING that Netanyahu will lay out the truth before Congress. This all might turn out to be the first thing that Boehner has done RIGHT. Just don’t lose sight of VJ. She is more important to the interests of Iran than has ever been told.

    oldsailor82,
    I listened up until the first lie, then I realized there wasn’t going to be any reason to listen further.

    I find it disturbing that every “black” person in the administration looks like they are of Arab decent, rather than African decent. Rice, Holder, Obama, all look Arab to me.

    THIS QUOTE WILL LIVE FOREVER……

    When speaking about the situation of ISIS as opposed to spread of Iranian terrorism in the Middle East, Benjamin, Netanyahu said;

    “The enemy of your enemy… is your enemy” !!!…..

    That quote says it all.

  43. AND NOW……..
    everybody has heard what Netanyahu thinks. Now lets hear a SENSIBLE rebuttal from the BASTARD………..who allegedly is the leader. Maybe he will be too busy doing a little game of DROP THE SOAP,with his BODY MAN, or maybe he will have the alleged SOS do the rebuttal later on. I am sure that in Soetoro’s tiny pea size brain lurks a deep resentment of Netanyahu…..not because of being PM of Israel but because Netanyahu is a MAN WITH CHARACTER,and Soetoro,is a DEVIATE WITHOUT CHARACTER…….and today it was made painfully clear which of the two knows the truth.

    The usurpers negotiations with Iran amount to nothing more than an exercise in bull$hitting Americans into believing Iran is harmless, and Valerie Jarrett, and the usurper know best, at how to allow Iran to become armed with nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    If Iran wants to go nuclear I would be willing to help.

    I think several, deep earth penetrating bombs, armed with small nuclear warheads, delivered to the known, Iranian, nuclear program sites, would be the perfect way for their wishes to come true.

    “A recent report from the National Bureau of Economic Research indicates that Obama’s “miraculous recovery” is little more than a reconfiguring of unemployment data. A whopping sixty percent of 2014’s so-called “job creation” was from the expiration of unemployment benefits, indicating that the government no longer considers these people in the job market and thus, not “unemployed.””

    SOMEHOW I JUST CAN’T FEEL ANY REMORSE FOR THIS BITCH !!!!

    Nearly in tears.

    You’d think, having heard Benjamin Netanyahu’s absolute brilliant stemwinder of a speech before Congress today, Democrats would realize they will just make themselves look like complete fools if they keep bellyaching about it. ….You’d think that.

    But you’d be wrong. With Nancy Pelosi setting the example for members of her party, they’re taking the bellyaching up a notch.

    She was nearly in tears, friends . . . just imagine Nancy Pelosi in tears from hearing the truth! How could that mean old man from Israel insult her president and her like that?

    It’s just . . . so . . . so……distressing . . .

    “The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests. Ours is a deep and abiding friendship that will always reach beyond party lines’.

    Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with the Israeli people. The state of Israel stands as the greatest political achievement of the 20th century, and the United States will always have an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.

    Here is the biggest lie that bitch has ever said…..“”That is why, as one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation”.

    Now that was a mouthful of horse#hit, if I have ever it spoken.

    “Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated something we all agree upon: a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable to both our countries. We have all said that a bad deal is worse than no deal, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons is the bedrock of our foreign policy and national security. As President Obama has said consistently, all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.”

    She’s terribly upset because Netanyahu thinks she, Obama and Kerry don’t understand the seriousness of the threat Iran poses, or the foolishness of trusting them with a deal that basically greases the skids for them to become a nuclear power.

    “The president has far exceeded his constitutional authority. … We all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.” – House Speaker John Boehner…..THEN WHY DON’T YOU STOP HIM BOEHNER?

This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.” – Mitch McConnell….THEN WHY HAVEN’T YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES PUT THIS ISSUE TO THE FLOOR?

    “It’s important for people who agree with us that the president doesn’t have this ability to put illegal immigration laws in place executively.” – Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the House GOP whip……THEN WHY HAVEN’T YOU DECLARED THIS ILLEGAL AND DEMANDED ACTION?

    “The president chose to use an authority that he said 22 separate times he didn’t have the authority to do.” – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy….THEN WHY HAVEN’T YOU AND THE REST OF CONGRESS AUTHORIZED HIS ARREST?

    Each of these representatives voted today to fully fund the DHS and President Obama’s unconstitutional, illegal amnesty.

    Each of them promised voters in November that they would not allow Obama to get away with passing illegal amnesty with his pen and phone.

    The only reason I can think of for them pretending they don’t know Obama is a usurper, is because they are all subject to blackmail by the NSA, and the usurper, who wouldn’t hesitate to use any dirty laundry he could find.

We watched him glued to our seats today give a historic speech no one will ever forget. If and when a deal is ever made with Iran, everyone will look to Netanyahu to see what he will do. Bibi is the new Churchill as much as Obama hates it. Long live Israel and Netanyahu.

  68. Good posts today! I’ve been extremely busy with home matters but did get to hear Bibi’s marvelous speech. Later this afternoon something hit me full force. Just think of it:

    The new leader of the free world, Netanyahu, (I love that, SueK) came to America not only to plead his case for the preservation of Israel but also TO WARN US IN OUR COUNTRY of the danger that awaits us with an Iranian nuclear arsenal PLUS long range missiles to deliver TO US. Here the prime minister of a very tiny country (powerful in its heritage, however) has to be the one to bring the message directly to Americans while our own pResident is undermining our security and poo-pooing Bibi’s message and admonition.
    Ironic, isn’t? But wonderful, isn’t? Thank God for Bibi. (Incidentally, the ICBM’s are not a part of the negotiations, but should be.)

    The later comments of Soetoro were absolutely revolting. First of all, he warned Bibi ahead of time that no secrets of the Iranian negotiations should be revealed. Then after Bibi’s message Soetoro scornfully says that there was “nothing new”. The impostor is worse by the minute – full of hate and intrigue, as well. Oh, God, deliver us from this creature.

    It’s news that will shock no one who’s actually paid attention to Obama’s give-them-everything-and-take-nothing negotiations with the nuclear ambitious leaders of Iran.

    News broke Tuesday that Iranian negotiators have rejected what they’re calling an “excessive and illogical” demand by Obama to halt all nuclear activity for at least 10 years.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Obama’s proposal was “unacceptable and threatening,” BBC News reports

  82. Obama claims Netanyahu wants war if he doesn’t agree with Barack’s Iran deal. But by failing to protect the Middle East and by pulling out, hasn’t Obama created the most wars in recent memory by failing to act? I think so.

  83. This part of Netanyahu’s speech caught my attention. Parallel the Book of Esther with today’s events about Iran and the Jews. Keep in mind Persia is present day Iran.
    ~ ~ ~
    Netanyahu, Persia, Purim and Esther
    March 4-5 of this year marks the annual Feast of Purim, celebrated by Jews all over the world and commemorating their deliverance from genocide

    ALAN EASON — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have startled a few in the US Congress Tuesday when he basically told a Bible story. It was not just any Bible story, but rather one about the Jews, their national survival, Persia (the ancient empire centered in what is now Iran), and a beautiful Jewess named Esther. It is the story of how, through Esther’s courage, the Jews received the right to defend themselves after the Persian high official Haman had conceived a plot to have them wiped out.

  84. CW do you think that there is any similarity to the conditions that we had in the 1970s? What appears to be missing is the rampant inflation of that period that was known as Stagflation.

    I think that this is a world wide problem. It is not just the US economy that is sluggish. It is also the Australian economy and from what I remember from recent information it is also the Chinese econmy. I cannot remember seeing any UK data or much from Europe.

    I tend to agree that we are in a Depression. The key to me is that government spending has outstripped government income. This is putting pressure on the private sector, because we provide government with income in the first place. One major area of overspending is WELFARE.

    In Australia we have illegal immigrants from Muslim countries. The previous government allowed them to come and allowed them to access welfare payments. To our shame the Australians who have joined IS are on welfare benefits. This is a big issue.

    My understanding is that the US also has a big issue with illegals and Middle Eastern plus African immigrants (refugees my foot )accessing welfare payments. Some analysis of spending might produce some interesting answers.

  85. citizenwells

    aussie, if you mean Carter years, yes some similarities.
    Big difference.
    We really are in the age of “1984”.
    That is why I keep pushing the truth about jobs & the economy.
    A lot of people, young people are unemployed or underemployed.
    The immigrant problem, already bad, is getting worse with Obama.
    I plan to present an article tomorrow prior to the misleading BLS Feb jobs report.
    Our dumbed down entertainment culture believes the video screens, just as in “1984”.
    They have no clue how bad things are.
    PS-I spoke with another millennial friend this afternoon. He is paying attention.

  87. CW yes I meant the Carter years. I agree there are differences which is why this is Depression and not world wide Stagflation we had to fix the last time.

    One of the differences that i see relates to how wages are suppressed by the influx of illegal immigrants. There is a larger workforce.

    During the Carter years, which in Australia was the Whitlam years wages were skyrocketing yet there was a lack of jobs at the same time (I know because I could not get a job when I graduated from University).

    The similarity, at least in Australia is the fact that a lot of young people are unemployed or underemployed.

    I think your 1984 comparison is actually correct.

    I remember 1984 reasonably well (the year). In Australia the journalists went nuts trying to prove that it was nothing like the book and we have nothing to worry about. They really were very shallow in their analysis. I spent 7 months of 1984 in the USA, and I was there when Ronald Reagan was re-elected as President. What a good man. The USA felt reasonably secure at that stage. Now everything has changed.

    Big Brother is here. There are CCTV cameras just as it was envisaged in the book everywhere. CCTV cameras watch us in our cars and they watch us when we are shopping. Even when people disappear (and murdered), CCTV footage can be produced that can give some clues to the perpetrator. Michael Brown was caught by CCTV footage committing strong arm robbery. Yet, that was not how the author envisaged the use of those cameras. It was a lot worse than what I just outlined.

    In the Soviet Union big brother existed as far back as 1948 because those in charge got children to dob on their parents and neighbours. Unfortunately for other reasons we need to adopt such tactics within the muslim community. But it is all what the author of 1984 was suggesting. Even the wars are a part of that picture… especially with North Korea now preparing for war with the USA whilst we are now friends with China, and Russia is out of favour again.

    The tele screens and influences of “1984” were child’s play compared to what we have.
