White House Blames Jobs
Numbers on Sequester

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 4/5/2013 8:02:58 PM

The Obama White House is scrambling to blame Friday’s abysmal March jobs numbers on the sequester’s trimming of the rate of growth in federal budgets that have yet to fully commence. After the Labor Department announced that a mass exodus of 663,000 workers left the U.S. workforce last month and that job creation fell 112,000 jobs short of projections, Obama’s top economic adviser Alan B. Krueger, took to the White House blog to blame the sequester: It is important to bear in mind that the March household and payroll surveys are the first monthly surveys to look

This explanation is for the 47%ers.

The sequester has not been fully implemented yet, and, in addition, let´s not forget ---- it is a reduction in the INCREASE of federal spending, not actual cutting!

0bama always blames everyone else. The jobs numbers are bad because of all of 0bama´s failed policies, his massive government regulation, the massive tax hike he just implemented, his 0bamacare huge tax hike, and his printing of 85 Billion dollars a month that has caused everything to cost a whole lot more. Companies are hiring less because 0bama´s policies are just horrid for business. We just decided to close our doors; plain and simple, as we could no longer afford to pay our employees.

The bHo has done everything possible to harm small business. It took bHo´s administration 4 years to admit that small business accounts for more jobs than any other employer classification yet he continues to damage them. Everything coming out of this despicable administration is a lie or a bogus excuse.

The blame chain:

George W. Bush
Global Warming
Racism
Incivility
The Tea Party (and/or Sarah Palin)
Sexism
Homophobia, Islamophobia
The 1%
Reaganomics
Not Enough Socialism

You cannot be a true Democrat unless you learn to always blame others for every bad thing you intentionally caused.

Want to see some sad job numbers, wait for obummercare to get rolling. Medical personnel are closing offices and going into research. Small business owners are cutting all back to part-time hours and no medical coverage.Soon those part-time folks will be gone. Grocery stores get more automated each day, and this is just the start.Jobless will go up exponentially in the next 90 days.

This is laughable:

>The administration continues to urge Congress to replace the sequester with balanced deficit reduction, while working to put in place measures to put more Americans back to work like rebuilding our roads and bridges and promoting American manufacturing.

Excuse me but "The President proposes, Congress disposes?" Have I got that wrong? While the Constitution gives the president power to influence Congress in its lawmaking, this POTUS seems to think he has no role whatsoever in lawmaking. He´s dumped his own detritus in Congress´ lap and told them to clean it up as though he has nothing to do with it

I swear I want to know where I can go to sue someone for the load of bricks I was sold as a sorry excuse for an elementary education. I went through an excellent suburban public school system in the 1950´s-60´s and I promise you: we were taught, plain and simple, that FDR saved this nation from destruction at the hands of the oil and railroad barons, and the Great Depression was the fault of Herbert Hoover. Everyone believed it. And here we are again! I could just spit nails.

The sequester can only affect government jobs, which aren´t real jobs, so please try another explanation, zippy. This lie is just too obvious, even to the dullards who voted for you.

And by the way, spending another 3 trillion now while cutting a trillion over the next 10 years is NOT a balanced budget. It´s also another lie because the cuts will never be made.

#7 right on!
The word ´sequester´, the latest meme from the left, is the club used to beat the post turtle Republicans over the head with.
Republicans will be destroyed by Obama and they sit there and take it. The Republican party is almost finished and illegal amnesty will be the final blow to them with the gaggle of 8.
The undocument democrat voters (illegals) will never vote Republican so why go along with the left?

The Blamer in Chief is right on schedule.

Jobs, North Korea, foreclosures, crime, hurricanes, snow in March is all due to the sequester since most Americans are so utterly stupid, they now can´t understand how a plant could be blamed for anything but definitely would if they could understand anything beyond "tingle up my leg" from the Chris Matthews and Jon Stewart news providers (and I´m not being sarcastic). The 51 percent believes it and that´s all that matters. That´s why Hillary and Michelle will be elected in 2016, guaranteed.

How do the job numbers, the national unemployment rate, and the numbers of Americans who have simply stopped looking for work square with the liberal Democrat, and some cheap labor Republican, plans to authorize through immigration reform the mass importation in the years ahead of almost a half million low-skilled and low-wage earning foreign "guest" workers and AGJOBS workers each year on into the future, which would essentially be legalizing most prospective future illegal immigration by providing hundreds of thousands of would be illegal aliens an easy way to come into the USA to work.

Unlike past "guest" worker authorizations that were temporary in nature and required the "guest" workers to leave after their allotted time periods, this new so called "guest" worker plan allows the "guest" workers to stay, become permanent residents, bring their foreign families here, and eventually be given US voting rights. No doubt over the years, if those plans become law, the Democrats will garner millions of new foreign born voters as a result of allowing that many poor, generally uneducated, and low wage earning aliens into the USA.

If it´s in print, it must be true. Face it, the Sequester will be blamed on Republicans because the press are like ancient Gods. They walk among us and are aligned with the Democrats. i.e. they help them to defeat their enemies. In the end the Sequester will mean what the press says it means and no one who is not paying attention will be the wiser.

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square. Be mean to John Roberts and

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep.

A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional.

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
