  • Obama's Unemployment Sleight of Hand

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We have an audio sound bite here from Obama, the press conference I mentioned an hour ago. He went out there and he was praising his economy. He was heralding first-time unemployment rate as being under 5% for the first time in seven years. That's essentially since he took office. The first time. When have you ever heard that referred to: "The first-time unemployment rate is now at 4.9%"? What's that? Does anybody have any memory of hearing the unemployment rate referred to as "the first-time unemployment rate"? Well, there's a reason he said it. It's because...

  • So this is what 'full employment' looks like? [That's essentially what we have today]

    CNBC ^ | 02/07/2016 | Jeff Cox
    For more than seven years, Federal Reserve officials have touted their progress toward achieving "full employment," with the most recent target a 4.9 percent unemployment rate. With Friday's nonfarm payrolls report showing that the goal has been achieved, perhaps the Fed can raise the "Mission Accomplished" banner along with a welcome mat to the world of "full employment." The jobless rate last reached this level in February 2008, following a run from June 2005 to April 2008 during which unemployment never eclipsed 5 percent. Getting a "4-handle" on the number -- using Wall Street lingo -- was supposed to represent...
  • Getting away with a bogus unemployment rate. Why?

    Local | February 5, 2016 | From The Deer Stand
    The government (Obama administration) reported that only 151,000 jobs were created last month and that the unemployment rate DROPPED to 4.9%, the lowest in 10 years. We all know that is bogus as they don't count the millions who are unemployed but are not looking for work. How do they get away with giving out false information? Of course we know the main stream media won't challenge them but what about our pundits and politicians?

    Federal Reserve Bank of New York officials secretly conducted real-time exercises during the 2011 and 2013 debt-limit crisis that demonstrated the federal government could function during a temporary shutdown by prioritizing spending, even as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew publicly claimed many times that such efforts were "unworkable," according to a new report by the House Financial Services Committee obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The staff report, to be released Tuesday, charges that Lew and other Obama administration officials deliberately misled Congress and the public during the federal budget and debt limit showdowns in both years.

    One of the "few regrets" of his presidency, President Obama said dolefully in his State of the Union speech, was "that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better." Were he endowed with "the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt," he remarked, he could have done more to bridge the partisan divide. But he pledged to "keep trying to be better so long as I hold this office." Did you experience a touch of deja vu when the president said that? Four years ago, when he was in the home stretch of his first term and running...

    Speaking at a town hall meeting in Baton Rouge, La., last week, President Barack Obama told the audience that when Ronald Reagan was governor of California the smog sometimes got so bad that "people just wouldn't go outside." "And if you had asthma or some respiratory disease, you might die," said Obama. "I remember as recently as 1979, when I first started college--I started college in Los Angeles--when I went running, the first week I was there, after about five minutes I'd start feeling a burning in my chest," said the president. "And it was just me sucking in soot...

    Among the lies about himself Obama consistently repeats is that he was a constitutional law professor. Lie one: Obama was never a professor; he was a lecturer. He did not have the qualifications to be a professor. Obama never published a single law paper. He was hired by the University of Chicago when they learned he had been given a book contract on race and law directly after graduating from Harvard. There was no book - just the contract, which he later reneged on. This is not the normal level of accomplishment for a University of Chicago professor or even...

However, as the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) has shown, Obama skips more than half of his daily intelligence briefings. The data comes from the White House itself, which has admitted Obama's absence but has said he reads the material on his iPad.

    The surge of illegal immigrant children continued unabated in November, pushing the Obama administration to announce emergency measures to try to handle a problem it thought it had solved earlier this year. Two months into the new fiscal year, the number of unaccompanied minors jumping the border and getting caught is at an all-time high. So far, the U.S. Border Patrol has picked up over 10,500 — more than twice the number at the same point last year. The number of families trying to cross also has surged, with more than 12,500 people caught — a 173 percent increase over...

    On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion. Ordinary people also have seen the videos, heard the stories and reached the same conclusion — one that might seem absurd to Americans but is widely believed among Iraqis — that the United States is supporting the Islamic State for a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do...

Now he wants us to believe that Iran is just another jayvee team even as its taking over Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Like the rest of his Iran deal talking points, the one about Irans tiny military budget is false, and not only is it false, but his claim about how small Irans military budget keeps changing. A few weeks ago, in...

    On Sunday and Monday, foreign ministers and other international leaders met in Anchorage, Alaska to attend the Conference on Global Leadership in the Arctic. As a sign of the importance the United States placed on the Alaska forum, President Barack Obama attended. He used the conference as a platform for urging swifter action to combat climate change. After the conference, the representatives of the Arctic Council members signed a joint statement affirming our commitment to take urgent action to slow the pace of warming in the Arctic.

    ....Obama gave a doom and gloom speech yesterday at the Global Leadership in the Arctic (GLACIER) conference in Alaska to build momentum for the U.N. climate deal in Paris this December. So far less than one third of countries have submitted plans to cut carbon dioxide emissions by the Wall Street Journals count. According to Obama, Climate change is happening faster than were acting and the world is facing a future of more fires, more melting, more warming, more suffering. But there are at least two major problems with his focus on global warming as hes presented it in Alaska....

    On his way to Alaska this afternoon, President Obama called Kathleen Goforth, the widow of the slain Texas Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth who was shot and killed at a gas station while he was fueling a police cruiser. On behalf of the American people, I offered Mrs. Goforth my condolences and told her that Michelle and I would keep her and her family in our prayers, Obama said in a statement released this evening. Obama said that he promised Goforths widow that he would continue to praise bravery of police officers who served their communities.

    Submerged countries, abandoned cities and floods of refugees await the world barring urgent action on climate change, President Barack Obama warned Monday, painting a doomsday scenario as he opened a historic visit to Alaska. In a bid to further his environmental legacy, Obama brought the power of the presidential pulpit to Anchorage and called on other nations to take swift action as negotiations for a global climate treaty near a close. His speech to an Arctic climate summit set the tone for a three-day tour of Alaska that will put the states liquefying glaciers and sinking villages on graphic display....

    President Barack Obama is comparing tensions between the U.S. and Israel over the Iranian nuclear deal to a family feud and says he expects quick improvements in ties between the longtime allies once the accord is implemented. Like all families, sometimes there are going to be disagreements, Obama said Friday in a webcast with Jewish Americans. And sometimes people get angrier about disagreements in families than with folks that arent family. The presidents comments came as momentum for the nuclear accord grew on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers will vote next month on a resolution to disapprove of the deal. Sen....

    Iran appears to have built an extension to part of its Parchin military site since May, the UN nuclear watchdog said in a report obtained by the Reuters news agency on Thursday. A resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Parchin file, which includes a demand for fresh IAEA access to the site, is a symbolically important issue that could help make or break Tehran's July 14 nuclear deal with six world powers. The confidential IAEA report obtained by the news agency says, "Since (our) previous report (in May), at a particular location at the Parchin site, the agency...

Parchin is an Iranian military complex located southeast of Tehran. It is the focus of speculation regarding possible testing of weaponization of nuclear material by the Iranians.

But if we want to keep this momentum going to make sure that working families feel like their hard work is being rewarded with a basic sense of security then we all need to do our part.

    Iran, in an unusual arrangement, will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect a site it allegedly used to develop nuclear arms under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press. The revelation is sure to roil American and Israeli critics of the main Iran deal signed by the U.S., Iran and five world powers in July. Those critics have complained that the deal is built on trust of the Iranians, a claim the U.S. has denied. The investigation of the Parchin nuclear site...

    In a development sure to incite more opposition in Congress to the Obama administrations nuclear deal, Iran is being granted the rare benefit of using its own experts to inspect a site where Tehran allegedly worked on atomic weapons. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the condition is part of a secret agreement between Iran and the U.N. agency that normally carries out nuclear inspections. Lawmakers have been calling on the administration to provide the details of this side deal, which Obama advisers have characterized as routine.

    I’m going to need some time to adjust to the reality that ObamaCare won’t be the biggest pile of s**t in O’s legacy.Remember those whispers we heard last month about secret side deals between the UN and Iran regarding nuclear inspections? Turns out they’re secret for a very good reason. [T]he agreement [between the UN and Iran] diverges from normal inspection procedures between the IAEA and a member country by essentially ceding the agency’s investigative authority to Iran. It allows Tehran to employ its own experts and equipment [at Parchin] in the search for evidence for activities that it...
