Due out this morning at 8:30 AM ET is the December nonfarm payrolls report from the BLS, and the release of the FOMC minutes Thursday afternoon from the Federal Reserve´s latest policy meeting just made it a lot more interesting. The Fed recently announced that it would tie its interest rate policy guidance to a 6.5 percent unemployment rate threshold – meaning unemployment data has taken on special significance for markets. Thursday´s FOMC minutes release revealed, however, that the Fed is already discussing scaling back or ending quantitative easing as soon as later this year,

Seriously, who the heck really believes any of the BS data that the BLS puts out for this regime?

They are still quibbling over a change in jobs in the tens of thousands, while 20 million+ are either unemployed or underemployed. And how many are working 2-3 PT jobs and are thus ignored by our policymakers?

How can you justify another year extension of unemployment if the national rate is 7.7% unemployment.I thought if states got under 8% they were booted of more extensions.If anything the extension should have been 6 mos,with a stern warning there wouldn´t be any more. Castro fired 1000´s of government bureaucrats and guess what private sector hirings are skyrocketing.

There´s a huge blanket excuse for lazy people these days and that is there ain´t no jobs.It´s become so ingrained that people routinely believe it now.

How can you blame high unemployment on tax cuts for the rich unless you believe that money should be used for thin air government job creation. All these kinds of jobs have a negative return and don´t contribute to growth.

Wouldn´t be surprised if there is a re-statement of the months leading up to the election. Zippy now has no use for the phony reports, he may allow the truth to seep through. Let us see.

Oh, I´m sure the Fed will end qualitative easing and Operation Twist. All such programs will be replaced by a new initiative, ´Project Go For Broke,´ will install a rheostat switch on the President´s desk. When a new ´stimulus´ idea is presented to the President and he needs funding, he can just twist the dial to unleash a trillion or so at a time. The common sense ´laws´ controlling any abuse of this innovation are that he can only do it when he is actually IN the Oval office and the dial only goes up to eleven.

Dems May Regret Steyer’s Keystone Payoff
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/20/2014 5:39:33 PM     Post Reply
After a lengthy study of the plans for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. State Department issued an 11-volume report back in January confirming what most experts had already concluded long before then: the vital project would not damage the environment or increase the rate of carbon pollution. But liberal activists weren’t happy and have used the 90-day automatic review process that followed that report to furiously lobby the administration to stop the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast refineries. The key player in that effort was Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental

Stevens: Fix Second Amendment to Remove
“Any Limits” on Government Power
National Review Online, by Tim Kavanaugh    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/20/2014 5:37:20 PM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens supports gutting the Second Amendment in order to remove any limit on government infringements on the right of self-defense. In his new book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, Stevens — who generally favored maximum government power during his 35-year tenure on the high court — proposes, among other things, changing the language of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution so that the amendment would read, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms [when serving in the militia] shall not be infringed.” Stevens acknowledged in

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on

Dem Senator Nearly Hit by Train During
Press Conference About Commuter Safety
Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/20/2014 5:03:51 AM     Post Reply
Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has been waging a campaign demanding safety accountability for the Metro-North railway this week after it was discovered that the MTA has had 139 violations resulting in $552,000 worth of fines over the last ten years. But as he discovered this week, there is also an element of personal responsibility when it comes to commuter train safety. Blumenthal was holding a press conference Friday on the Milford Metro-North station platform when an Amtrak train came barreling into the station and almost knocked him out cold. Just as Milford Mayor Ben Blake was saying, “safety, as you know,

Easter Miracle in Brooklyn for Shooting Victim
Daily Beast, by Michael Daly    Original Article

Despite being shot in the head twice, a young boy credits his faith in God for keeping him alive and able to sing his praises. A double Easter miracle will occur today as a 13-year-old Brooklyn boy who survived being shot two times in the head watches a live-streamed concert by the crouch choir in which he would otherwise have been singing. “They are giving me a lap top,” said miracle kid Gama Droiville from his bed in the pediatric unit at Kings County Hospital on Saturday. And anybody who wants to join young Gama in watching an Easter service

Dems want government health
care for all — no matter the cost

With little fanfare, Vermont is preparing to become the first state to implement a single-payer, government-run health-care system. The Vermont plan, if implemented, would abolish private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded system under which the state government directly pays doctors and hospitals. Of course the state is having a bit of trouble figuring out how to pay for the program’s estimated $2 billion price tag, considering that the entire state government’s operating budget is currently just $2.7 billion. Currently under consideration is an increase in the state sales tax from 6.9% to 29%. At

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
