Trump breaks federal rule
about commenting on jobs report

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Vicki Needham

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/4/2017 7:54:54 PM

President Trump broke an obscure yet tried-and-true rule on Friday - don´t comment on the monthly jobs report within the hour of its release. This is the second time in recent months the Trump administration has violated the federal rule barring all executive branch employees, including the president, from making public comments on leading economic indicators before the hour deadline is reached. The long-standing federal rule issued in 1985 says that the executive branch must wait for an hour - 9:30 a.m. in the case of the jobs report and most other major economic indicators. But Trump took to Twitter

Comments:
Doncha love our government? Sounds like another silly rule that needs to be repealed.

Last time I checked, Trump was head of the executive branch. I wasn´t aware he worked for the Office of Management and Budget.

As you would expect the Rule doesn´t apply to Congress.

Solution: Why notify the President or anyone else in advance? Just release the fword report.

Here´s a question for Vicki the reporterette. Why aren´t you more concerned about internal White House leaks or intelligence agency leaks than a stupid rule related to the release of the monty job report?

A big nothing burger, who gives a *_hit. PDT can write and EO and kill the little rule.
Take 2 an aspirin and call me in the morning if you don´t fill better, morons.

Job numbers are to be celebrated. O´Zero never had any thing to celebrate. He never added one job, that´s why he changed the methodology of how Unemployment was reported.

Yes, remembering their concern for 0bama breaking rules, I totally don´t care about this. Seems to me, a rule from1985 was ´enacted´ to keep another America First President from getting first comment on growth he was responsible for, as well.

Just like every other human being, Trump can´t know all the rules and laws. He should be made aware and don´t let it happen again.

That said. It´s there for a reason. Lots of financial stuff rides on those numbers. Letting the cat out of the bag early to anyone gives those persons a heads up to the financial markets.

Wow this is almost as serious as making up a poorly done fake Selective Service Registration form and pretending that you actually registered as an 18 year old with your grandfather. Even a brainwashed demo for life who wants to believe the trip down to the office with grandpa has to be honest with themselves and admit BO made the whole thing up.

Being the in your face racist that he is, he dared anyone to confront him over the obvious forgery. Sadly America today doesn´t have enough guts to stamp out the biggest criminal any of us will ever see.

"Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the Economic Policy Institute and former chief economist at the Labor Department under Obama, said the rule is "black and white. And simple."

Another violation "doesn´t speak well for their respect for rule of law," she said."

Yeah... we all know how the "rule of law" was respected by you fools in the O administration!

Mom deals with ´unintentional racism´ after
daughter asks for braids to look like black friend

When Brigette Diez Kerr’s 7-year-old daughter Concetta asked for braids to look like her black friend, the mom was hesitant. It wasn’t that she didn’t want her daughter to wear braids, but she feared that her daughter would be stereotyped. What worried Diez Kerr even more was that her own fear was a form of unintentional racism. The mom detailed the experience in a now-viral Facebook post. “This is my daughter and her best friend. They’ve been BFFs since kindergarten. They are in second grade now. My daughter got up the other morning for school and asked that I fix her hair like her best

Following a deadly vehicle ramming at a demonstration against white nationalists earlier this month, the city of Charlottesville is set to cover controversial statues of Confederate generals in black fabric, city officials said. The city council voted unanimously early Tuesday to shroud the statues of Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in fabric to represent mourning of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman killed when a car rammed into a group of people protesting a white nationalist rally in the Virginia city, the Daily Progress reported. The vote comes only hours after tensions boiled over at the first city

DENVER - Three Afghan prison employees who went missing over the weekend from a Colorado training facility weren´t believed to pose a threat, a state prison official said Monday, and authorities remain most concerned about the visitors´ welfare. The missing guards are part of a group from Afghanistan training at the International Correctional Management Training Center in Canon City, which is run by the Colorado Department of Corrections. The three failed to return Saturday night after an organized trip, department spokesman Mark Fairbairn said. It´s the third time participants in the federally-backed training program have gone missing in recent years. Fairbairn

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A melee broke out at the Charlottesville City Council meeting on Monday night, as activists and residents angrily took over the Council chambers and criticized the city’s response to a white supremacist gathering here that left a local woman dead. It was the Council’s first meeting since the Aug. 11 and 12 rallies that brought hundreds of white supremacists to Charlottesville. White and black residents alike were furious with the police response to the demonstrations, and they faulted officers for not engaging during repeated scuffles. A woman, Heather D.

He´s been out of office for nearly eight months, but former President Barack Obama remains the Democratic Party´s best weapon for 2018. Democrats are already nostalgic for Obama as they battle against President Trump´s agenda. When he talks, they listen, as evidenced this week by a tweet from Obama about Charlottesville that became the most popular in the history of the platform. The tricky question now facing the party is how to use the former president on the campaign trail. Some Democrats are pushing for Obama to have a more elevated role, but the president has made clear he is

A Chinese automaker reportedly made a quiet bid to acquire Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, raising the distinct possibility that the traditional member of the Detroit Three that was bailed out by U.S. taxpayers could wind up with Chinese ownership. (Snip) The U.S. government bailed out Chrysler in late 2008 and 2009, funding the company´s bankruptcy and helping to negotiate Italian automaker Fiat´s deal to gain control of the brand. Several years later, Fiat gained full ownership of Chrysler. A deal would almost certainly raise political hackles in the U.S. over the possibility that a company rescued by taxpayers could yield to

McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration.

Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days. And as folks leave the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918, the U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that nearly two-thirds of the nation´s resident live withing a day´s drive of the path of totality.

Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family.

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared.

His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
