370k New Jobless Claims;
Gallup Reports Unemployment
Jump to 8.3%

Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/6/2012 1:57:55 PM

After a few post-Hurricane Sandy weeks of new jobless claims hitting over 400,000, it looks as though we´ve settled back into the new and accepted normal of new claims landing somewhere in the 360,000 to 390,000 range. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this week saw 370,000 new claims filed. Keep in mind, though, that it´s only in Barack Obama´s America that we´ve learned to celebrate any number under 400,000. We´re nowhere near the point where our economy creates enough jobs to keep up with those lost every week. But because the media will never

Read em and weep Obamabots. Hope you´re happy with the economy you´ve saddled your children and grandchildren with. For the first time in the history of our country our children can´t expect to have a better quality of life than their parents. And don´t give me any crap about this being Bush´s fault. Zippy has had the reigns for four years now and he has doubled down on stupid, or maybe he just wants to destroy our country. Well, you certainly gave him a big hand with that.

= more Democrats who feel good about themselves for wanting to "help people"

You can´t base your identity on a desire to "help people" if people don´t need your so-called "help". The more hopeless dependents Obama creates, the more his sheeple supporters bask in the smug glow of their own moral superiority.

People who actually think Obama is out to fix anything haven´t the slightest clue about Democrats.

Anyone listen to Rush today? He was a total downer but he said that he thinks Obama wants to decimate the Republicans so he can ultimately blame all of this tax over the cliff stuff, on GWB. The hatred for this previous POTUS borders on paranoia and egged on by G.Soros who lost millions of $$$ trying to defeat GWB and before that, his father. I knew the jobless claims would rise. This whole administration is a lie. But the lemmings who voted for this faux king, including my own family, are the bigger fools.

Unemployment claims came out, and WOW! So even though our economy is down, it´s still up. Or we’re up, but still down. Whatever… it’s all good, because your neighbor pays. And it’s another example of the stupid math liberals use to mask reality. The unexciting nature of the newest unemployment claims is papering over all of the downward revisions that we are seeing in other areas of the economy. For new readers the sentence above is an example of a device I employ now and again called “sarcasm.” “Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 26,000 to a seasonally adjusted

The White House stenographer appears to have given President Obama a little too much "respect." Introducing soul legend Aretha Franklin at a White House performance Thursday night, the president flubbed the spelling of her signature song. "When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her..." Obama said, prompting laughter from the crowd. The president´s face betrayed that he had misspelled the anthem, but he did not stop to correct himself before adding that Franklin "had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African-Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or

As controversy grows over the regrading of SAT examinations, thousands of people have started sharing their own scores on social networks to put future generations at ease. Well-known figures have been conspicuously quiet about their results, however, but with the likes of Ke$ha, James Woods and Natalie Portman reportedly getting close to a perfect 1600, perhaps they felt they´d only add pressure rather than ease it. Famous faces with far lower SAT scores include Bill Cosby, (Snip) and even former US President Bill Clinton, whose 1020 puts him a few hundred points below successor George W Bush.

At a morning workshop for high school and college students, first lady Michelle Obama called soul “the kind of music that makes you move, no matter who you are or where you come from.” “Sometimes it makes your hips move,” she said. “Sometimes it makes you rock your head.

When Joe Scarborough challenged her doing-it-for-the-money claim, saying that many serve "for all the best reasons," Brzezinski began to back down.

A Pentagon research team is studying the body movements of Russian President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders in order to better predict their actions and guide U.S. policy, Pentagon documents and interviews show. The "Body Leads" project backed by the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), the think tank reporting to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, uses the principles of movement pattern analysis to predict how leaders will act.

Like something from the Human Genome project, one feels like announcing discovery of the long-lost Napoleon-Nixon gene. Obama apparently has the Napoleon-Nixon defensive, arrogant, and unaccountable gene -- albeit with none of Nixon´s redeeming expertise in international power politics, and none of Napoleon´s record for strategy and war. More worrisome is that Obama’s lack of stature is now paired with an embarrassing preoccupation for proving he has some. What other president would ramrod an incompressible de facto nationalization of America’s healthcare system (embodied in legislation he himself never read or permitted others to read) down the nation´s throat, then turn

The Congressional investigation into whether the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups for persecution ended today on a controversial note after former official Lois Lerner refused to answer questions. The rough day for the investigation followed the release of emails corroborating political targeting of groups. The emails, obtained by the House´s investigative committee, indicated that Lerner, in her official capacity, aimed to target political groups out of concern that the Citizens United ruling would lead to more suspicious or inappropriate tax filings. The ruling repealed much of the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act and allowed individuals and political groups to

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list.
