Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen set a cautionary tone on the economy saying that the FOMC will not make a move on interest rates for the next few meetings.
Ms. Yellen attributed her dovish stance to weak inflation and a slowly improving jobs situation.
“It continues to be the FOMC’s assessment that even after employment and inflation are near levels consistent with our dual mandate, economic conditions may, for some time, warrant keeping the federal funds rate below levels the committee views as normal in the longer run,” Yellen said.
I was recently channel surfing when I caught Marco Rubio addressing the senate on C-Span. I stopped to listen and was so impressed with his impassioned speech about supporting Isreal and Netanyahu.
Rubio was saying how Isreal has been our one ally in the Middle East and is surrounded by countries who want to destroy her. Marco pointed out that the Ayatollah Khomeni who is Iran’s leader not only views himself as leader of Iran, but leader of all muslims world wide. He believes that by having the muslim world clash with the non-muslim world and blowing Isreal off the map will bring about the 13th Imam or Holy Madi as they call it and Islam will dominate the world then. “I know this sounds like a fantasy,” Rubio said, ”but this is actually what he believes. That is why it is important that they don’t become a nuclear nation. They already have the enrichment and missile technology. All they need is the means to deliver them and that can be gotten anywhere from any country.”
Marco thought it was totally outrageous that Obama and other democrats are planning to boycott Netanyahu’s speech before congress in March and telling others not to attend either. He stressed the importance of defending our friend and ally and all should attend Netanyahu’s speech.
I can take Rubio’s scenario of Iran’s plan one step further. I have read generals who said all Iran or any rogue nation has to do is send a nuclear missile from international waters 100 miles up and explode it. The sheer vibration would knock out most of our grids and that and the radiation that falls to the earth would kill most of the population. Any survivors that are left would be forced to convert to Islam. Yet Obama says climate change is more important than terrorism. That’s because he supports the muslims as he said he would and hates America……………Hillary Clinton has been awfully quiet lately. Could it be because of all the attention about her role in Benghazi again and the fact that it has come out that Bill has been meeting with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on his private Island where he has known sex orgies? One of these so called “sex slaves”, Virginia Roberts, has claimed she saw Clinton there many times, but never saw him engage in any sexual acts. Logs from Epstein ‘s private jet show Clinton on there many times. When Epstein was asked why Clinton was there, his answer was, “He owes me.” This could be why Hillary could be so quiet lately. It’s been 202 days since Hillary had a press conference and the last interview was a 184 days ago. No speaking engagement without significant fees 269 days. Elizabeth Warren is now emerging as the dem. front runner.……….A group called Radical Brownies is indoctrinating young girls 8-11 years old telling them white policemen are killing young black folks. The group’s mission statement says, ”The radical Brownies empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership in order to make the world a more RADICAL place.”
When the regular Girl Scouts of America was contacted they assured that they had no connection with the group. This is a reaction to Michael Brown. Brown was shot because he robbed a store. Intimidated an employee, charged a cop and grabbed for his gun. Black supporters of Brown and this group refuse to accept that. Statistics show black males make up about 7% of the U.S. population but commits 53% of all the murders in the U.S. and 52% of all robberies………..The American embassy in Yemen has closed after a complete collapse of the American supported government there. Obama said his strategy to deal with ISIS is molded after the success of the government in Yemen. Well DUHHHH!!!! I guess that strategy wasn’t so successful. This is a huge gain for the Iranians . In the last six months we’ve been using a minimum amount of combat forces everywhere. That is his strategy. He’s leading from behind as always. He looks at using ground forces as taboo. He said no ground troops then is putting ground troops in but for a limited time with lots of restrictions so why bother? He has no commitment to win, it’s for political cover and he becomes Netanyahu’s worst enemy. He’s not helping stability in the region and he still refuses to say ‘Radical Islam” and says climate change is more important than terrorism. What a mess!!!!
