Obama deceives Americans with jimmied unemployment figures

December 7, 2016

Obama regime’s funny math dramatically alters unemployment statistics

Leave it to the Obama-praising New York Times to score another one for the ripper. After the December Jobs Report was released — Obama’s last — the newspaper ran this headline: “President Obama Is Handing a Strong Economy to His Successor.” The report is slavish in its praise for the outgoing president while extensively quoting the chairman of Obama’s own Council of Economic Advisers, saying Obama inherited an economic disaster from his predecessor.  “It was an utterly terrifying time, the likes of which none of us had ever seen in our lifetimes.” He likened it to the beginning of the Great Depression.

Some pertinent facts are missing. Since the Obama syndicate was unhappy with the manner in which unemployment figures were gathered they decided to change the standard by which they were measured.

Those who are unemployed and have given up on finding a job— including people who are so hopelessly out of work that they’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks, are no longer counted as unemployed by the Department of Labor. In the Obama regime’s skewed labor statistics, though you are desirous of work but remain unemployed you are not counted in the deceptive unemployment figures — currently said to stand at a low of 4.6%. At least 40 million Americans fall into that category. If you are working part-time at a job far below your normal salary, you are no longer counted as unemployed. Consider the example of a degreed former exec now selling shoes. If you perform a least one hour of work a week at $20 you are no longer counted among the unemployed.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics began manipulating unemployment statistics after Barack Obama assumed office in Jan. 2008, perfecting the Big Lie into an art form. Despite spending hundreds of $billions on such as his failed jobs program referred to as “shovel ready, (watch Obama joke about it) his green energy failure, the failed stimulus package, manipulation of the housing market and his unprecedented obsessive spending that has brought our national debt to nearly 23 trillion dollars.

Barack Obama and his administration goons have taken a page from Joseph Goebbel’s Third Reich  propaganda handbook: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it…”

Jim Clifton CEO of Gallup Polling wrote this excellent exposé over a year ago when Obama’s unemployment statistics were at 5.6%. His claims have become even more grandiose as he leaves office.

 Ultimately, the American people rose up to elect businessman Donald Trump, who just yesterday called to cancel the contract for the excessively high-priced Boeing $4 billion 747 Air Force One, calling the cost of the plane that purportedly emits less greenhouse gas, “ridiculous.”


Breitbart counterpunches Kellogg’s anti-conservative bigotry

December 5, 2016

Kellogg’s mixes left lurching politics with peddling its sugary products

At first glance it appears odd that a well-respected, conservative media outlet such as Breitbart News would engage in any type of bout with Kellogg’s.

But it was the sugar-drenched cereal manufacturer recently exposed for using deceptive practices citing a company paid “Breakfast Council” of “independent experts” to tout its nutritional benefits,  that landed the first blow as it announced its decision to pull ads from Breitbart.com. Breitbart is not “aligned with our values as a company,” Kellogg said in a statement. The company’s values obviously don’t include President-elect Donald Trump’s top strategist Steve Bannon, who formerly ran the popular news site.

This is the shocking back story to what you may have regarded as an unhealthy but politically benign cereal manufacturer. 

While you’re on the # Dump Kellogg’s site, join the hundreds of thousands who have signed the Boycott pledge. The banner message is “Join the Movement Against Kellogg’s Bigotry.”

Why would any parent want to serve their kids a bowl of Frosted Flakes that is loaded with sugar, salt and BHT preservatives?  Tony the Tiger and Kellogg’s fake “experts” might think this is “GR-R-REAT!” but you know it and the other products Kellogg’s sells are as loaded with as much trickery as the company’s left-wing politics. Join the nearly 400,000 people — as of this morning –who are boycotting the morning sugar rush products bearing the Kellogg’s brand.


Jockeying for RNC chair begins in earnest

December 2, 2016

Ambitious Robert Graham picked the wrong team with anti-Trump McCain and Flake

In mid-February we reported AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post which included an ASU Cronkite News video with Graham replicating a McCain gaffe confusing Barack Obama with what appears to be any Republican. McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. In Graham’s case he mistook “Mr. Trump” for Obama — not  a recommended move for a guy angling to lead the Republican National Committee.

Both mortifying videos and more are included in the linked report.

The hurdles are getting trickier for the ambitious and vindictive Robert Graham to navigate. Graham’s quest to replace former RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — who has been tapped as President-elect Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff — appears to be evaporating.

Though other names are being mentioned, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, an early Donald Trump supporter, is said to be considering running for the lead spot in the Republican Party. 

With Priebus now busy with the formation of the Trump cabinet and transition team, there is an urgency to fill the intra-party post. Unlike a cabinet position, the RNC chair doesn’t require congressional confirmation.

Christie, who formerly chaired the Republican Governors Association and has relationships with many of the party’s key donors appears to be in the advantageous catbird seat.

It should be remembered that neither Robert Graham nor his mentors John McCain and Jeff Flake attended Donald Trump’s initial rally when thousands of supporters waited in line for hours in the scorching July 11, 2015 heat at the Phoenix Convention Center to hear Trump speak. Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer hosted the event and he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio were onstage with now President-elect Trump. The two senators and Graham boycotted Trump’s subsequent Arizona appearances. McCain, who has referred to conservatives as “crazies” and has worked to purge them from elected precinct committeemen posts, eventually withdrew his lukewarm support of Trump. Blowhard Flake made headlines by making the rounds of broadcast networks telling whoever would listen that Trump was not worthy of his support — a traitorous message the liberal media were all too eager to air. With Donald Trump letting no grass grow under his feet as he puts together his team prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inaugural — Graham should be dismissed out of hand.

Obama’s frequent traveling companion and basketball teammate Jeff Flake, always eager to promote amnesty for illegals, will be a candidate for reelection in 2018 and should feel the same sting of rejection. He represents no one but his own ego.


Religion of Peace update — more terror Nov. 28, 2016

November 29, 2016

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an Ohio State University freshman drove his vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians at the school, then jumped out and stabbed numerous people with a butcher knife, before police officer Alan Horujko, rightly hailed as a hero, shot and killed the attacker on Monday. At least 11 victims were transported to hospitals.

PJ Media reports that in a new publication, ISIS has called for random knife attacks in “alleys, forests, beaches, and quiet neighborhoods. ” Also on the hit-list are kids engaged in sports.

Artan, 18, was a Somali refugee. He was a legal U.S. permanent resident. The city of Columbus where the campus attack took place has a large Somali population, the second largest in the United States.

ABC News reveals Artan’s Facebook rant that was posted just minutes before his bloody rampage began.

Ohio Governor John Kasich released a statement that state residents’ “thoughts and prayers go out to the Ohio State community.” The “thoughts a prayers” message is heard so often under these circumstances, the words are beginning to ring hallow.  What  Kasich, and every other governor should do is join together 50 strong to implore the federal government to impose stiffer immigration standards and shut down the influx of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees.” The feds are not doing their job to fulfill these key words in the Preamble to the United States Constitution: “….. establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity….

Although the Somali Student Association has a prominent presence on campus, (check out the audience in the opening frames of video link) Artan, now being referred to as a terror suspect, was offended over what he regarded as too few prayer rooms to accommodate Muslim students.

On the White House website we are treated to Barack Obama’s condolences (in both English and Spanish) on the death of Cuba’s brutal Communist dictator Fidel Castro. He also lets us know he has pardoned the national turkey, There is not, however, a single word referencing this latest terrorist attack on American soil.  He didn’t even say that if he had a son, he would look like Abdul — as he did with Trayvon MartinHe’ll probably get around to it when he returns from the golf course.


Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

November 20, 2016

As we enter this Thanksgiving week, we’d like to give thanks for the wisdom and wit of Dr. Thomas Sowell, still writing splendidly and imparting his own special brand of insight in his 86th year.

This post is not a break from politics — few among us actually yearn for that as we still revel in the recent election results and now await President-elect Donald Trump’s full cabinet appointments and inauguration. Americans spoke decisively with the 2016 election of the Donald Trump / Mike Pence ticket and Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate — having had their fill of “Hope and Change” that was mostly played out on golf courses and a world-wide apology tour.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to readWhat now for Obamacare and the Court?

Dr. Sowell’s column was posted in the New Hampshire Union Leader.  The far-left Arizona Republic no longer has an op-ed page. The newspaper only prints ops. Its own. Opinions that are liberally flavored with its favorite seasonings of open borders salsa and far-left extremism, as they routinely endorse George Soros funded candidates, as evidenced here and here.


President-elect Trump making top notch cabinet slections

November 19, 2016

Top quality picks will bolster new administration

Donald Trump is making all the right moves as he picks Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for U.S. Attorney General, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KA) as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser. With a Republican dominated Senate, his exceedingly capable selections should easily win approval.  Unlike the other cabinet posts, national security adviser does not require senate confirmation. (links include bios.)

Each of the three nominees have years of experience in Washington and stood firm against the GOP establishment to support Trump from the onset of his campaign.

Today Donald Trump will be meeting with former Massachusetts governor and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Unlike those previously selected for top posts, Romney has been a harsh critic of the president-elect. Other meetings will be taking place throughout the weekend. Romney is not deserving of any post in the Trump administration.

Earlier this week in a surprise move, Trump named Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to the chief of staff position. Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the conservative Breitbart News was selected as chief strategist and senior counselor.


Chaos in Chicago as O’Hare strike disrupts holiday travel

November 18, 2016

Remembering Ronald Reagan

On Wednesday we posted about defiant liberal mayors challenging President-elect Donald Trump on the issue of sanctuary cities, which provide safe havens for illegal foreign nationals. Our first example was Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel —- former chief-of-staff to Barack Obama —- boasting of his unwavering support (video) for illegals. Emanuel, who presides over a city with an astronomical homicide rate declares, “ Let’s be clear about what Chicago is. It always will be a sanctuary city. You are safe in Chicago. You are secure in Chicago. You are supported in Chicago.”

Now his “safe and secure city” which employs many undereducated, low-wage workers, will ensure chaos meets Thanksgiving travelers. Hundreds of O’Hare International Airport workers have voted to go on strike coinciding with the nation’s most traveled holiday. O’Hare is one of the nation’s busiest airports.

Although the circumstances are different, this incident brings to mind how President Ronald Reagan handled the serious situation that existed in 1981 when the nation’s air traffic controllers went on strike. He fired over 11,000 strikers who ignored his order to return to work within the 48-hour deadline he set for compliance with his order.
