HuffPuff Propagandizes a FOX Reality

Unemployed

I go through the headlines and news stories in over one-hundred publications daily. I do this so that I can view multiple sources on some of the same stories. Doing this allows me to formulate what is fact and what is disingenuous spin; propaganda meant to trick the public into thinking one way instead of another. Make no mistake, both ideological prospective do it. It’s the art of modern political war. But the Progressive Left has myriad vehicles to attack the ideological Right, where the Right has many fewer (thank you uber-stingy money people on the Right).

A perfect example of the Left’s disingenuous attack on the Right’s information sources comes in an article in the Huffington Post by Jack Mirkinson titled, FOX News Really Doesn’t Want to Talk About the Good Jobs News, where he writes:

“Quick! Can you find Fox News’s coverage of the latest job figures?”

He includes some main page screen shots.

“Still can’t find them? OK, we’ll help you out. What if we zoom in?…OK, OK, we’ll show you! The link is that little one right in the corner there…For some reason, FOX News appears to want to downplay the very good job numbers. For good measure, the network also downplayed the figures on its airwaves as well.”

He then goes on to show how the far-Left mainstream media outlets dutifully took the Obama Administration’s spun numbers touting them as miraculous by supplying one – one – example: a screen shot of CNN’s breaking news on the numbers.

The good numbers that Mr. Mirkinson points to are the BLS statistic that 288,000 jobs were created last month. Is that good news? Yes. Is it the miraculous news Mr. Mirkinson suggests? No.

Throughout the Obama Administration the majority of the jobs “created” have been either service industry jobs or part-time jobs. College graduates remain woefully under-employed and those experienced in the workforce who have been downsized or otherwise screwed out of a job find it almost impossible to find work. And if you are over 50 and have been out of work for a period of time, you might as well come to grips with the fact that you have become unemployable under Mr. Obama’s economy.

Where the Obama Administration and its sycophants want everyone to believe that the creation of 288,000 jobs is the greatest news since sliced bread, the facts remain…and they are not good.

▪ The U3 unemployment rate hovers at 6.1%. The U3 rate measures the unemployment of people who are without jobs and who have actively been looking for work within the past four weeks.

▪ The U6 unemployment rate hovers at 12.1%. The U6 rate reflects “discouraged workers,” or those who have stopped looking for work because current economic conditions make them believe that no work is available for them; “marginally attached workers,” or “loosely attached workers,” or those who “would like” and are able to work, but have not looked for work recently; and part-time workers who want to work full-time, but cannot due to economic reasons.

▪ The Labor Force Participation Rate is stuck at 62.8%.

These statistics mean that in a country of 318 million legal citizens, 92.2 million eligible for employment are without work. Almost one-third of the population is unemployed.

Further, the rate of those not in the labor force has exploded since 2000. Over the past 14 years – and predominantly during the Obama years – we have removed 14,022,376 from the labor force who are eligible to work. That’s over 1 million eligible workers removed from the workforce each year, on average.

So, understanding the reality behind the unemployment data – disingenuously termed the “jobs numbers” by the talking heads, when more accurately they should be referred to as the “jobless numbers” – how can anyone celebrate the creation of 288,000 menial and part-time jobs when we add one million people a year on average to the under- and unemployed demographic?

The American free-market Capitalist system is the only economic system to have ever – ever – created a Middle Class in the history of man. In its purest form it made the United States of America not only the world’s preeminent superpower, it made the United States the “land of opportunity.” Today, that is hardly the case. The Middle Class is disappearing are a rapidly increasing rate and opportunity is disappearing from our economic lexicon. Why, you ask? The answer is simple: the government manipulation of the American free-market Capitalist system.

Special interests in government have saddled the small business sector with an overwhelming number of regulations, while newer and more intrusive mandates continue to smother the job creators, literally stealing food from the mouths of the hungry in the form of disappearing opportunity.

Obamacare, environmental zealotry, socialism in the form of labor union oppression, manipulation of free commerce, all of these economy-stunting and job-killing maladies are introduced into the American free-market Capitalist system by government and the big-money, well-organized special interest groups that see success and American exceptionalism as a cancer, not a cure. Sadly, today, these creatures of negativity and societal destruction are in power…and on both sides of the governmental political aisle. Unless we shift the political paradigm radically back towards true limited government, it is only a matter of time before our Republic is lost.

So, Mr. Mirkinson, the jobs news is good? Please. The jobs news sucks.

As we celebrate the 238 anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, we should all be willing to look at the chains upon our wrists and ankles. We have allowed ourselves to become slaves to an oligarchic elite and their special interest benefactors. They feign concern about unemployment as they try to tell you they are just like us. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Case in point: Mrs. Clinton’s comment about being “flat-broke” when she and the former President left the White House. How does someone who is flat-broke acquire a multi-million dollar mansion in Chappaqua, New York and maintain two “summer cottages” in Ireland being flat-broke? It’s a lie, and one meant to deceive.

The good news it this. We can remove those chains and get back to good. We can free ourselves of the disingenuous and elitist oligarchs with which we are currently saddled. We have the power and it is a power that begins with the ballot box and navigates the seas of prosperity through limited government.

The time is now. Let us not be faint of heart.

Olympic Propaganda to the Masses

1392616913

1392616913MADISON, Wisc., Feb. 17, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — The Olympics is one of the greatest events in the world. They are being used to promote liberal causes worldwide.

Every four years, athletes from all over the world gather to showcase their talents. However, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) uses the Olympics to promote their liberal causes.

Fortunately, most of the athletes go to the Olympics to give their best athletically and stay clear of false politics. They simply do not have time to get sidetracked.

The Olympics were started in ancient Greece. They were athletic events surrounded by ritual sacrifices honoring Zeus and Pelops. Around 393 AD, as Greece was overtaken by the Romans, emperor Theodosius 1 decreed that all pagan cults and practices should be stopped. The ancient Olympics came to an end.

Pierre de Coubertin started the IOC in 1894. The first modern Olympics opened in Athens, Greece in 1896. Many of the pagan practices were eliminated, with some practices remaining.

In 2009, the IOC was granted observer status by the United Nations. This decision was based on the IOC’s contribution to the UN’s Millennium Development Goals.

As a result, the IOC is trying to sway athletes to promote their liberal causes, including homosexuality and climate change endeavors.

In October 2013, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) adopted pro-homosexual policies. U.S. athletes must now take a vow that they will not engage in “discrimination” based on “sexual orientation.”

4 WINDS President Steve McConkey fought this to no avail. “The USOC policies are set-up for discrimination against gay athletes, but there could be reverse discrimination in the future. It is a matter of time when Christians that believe homosexuality is a sin will go against the law of the land,” says McConkey. “The Olympic movement shadows what is happening in the real world.”

4 WINDS is a world-class track and field ministry. Steve and his wife started working in world-class track and field ministries in 1981. They have lived in Eugene, Fort Worth, Minneapolis, and now Madison, Wisconsin. Steve has a Masters of Public Health from Western Kentucky University and a BS-Public Health from Minnesota State University in Mankato. He became a Christian in 1976.

In 2003, McConkey fought the IOC for allowing transgenders in the Olympics to no avail. During the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, McConkey spearheaded the distribution of athlete testimonies into the underground church in China, estimated to be over 110 million people.

Two of the four Olympic athletes who had their testimonies distributed were supposed to win medals. All four won medals, accumulating three golds, two silvers. Before and after the Olympics, their testimonies went all over the world. Millions were reached.

Last week, a group of 105 athletes at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi distributed a letter requesting world leaders to take action on climate change and to prepare a commitment to a global agreement prior to the Paris climate talks in 2015.

These athletes are using their positions to promote global warming causes that have not been proven.

Steve McConkey believes Christian athletes should concentrate on their Olympic events and share their testimonies after their event is concluded. “Athletes have a tremendous opportunity to tell the world about their Christian faith. Be like the apostle Paul who went into Athens to share the gospel in a pagan world,” says McConkey. “You are in the Olympics to give a 100% athletic performance, so do this before you engage the media.”

Syrian Propaganda Exposed, Angering Photographer

ff10d66be9276d0625d1f4ab0385e8de

Have you seen this photograph of a young Syrian child sleeping between his parents graves? It is sad, no matter who the child is or what country he is from.

ff10d66be9276d0625d1f4ab0385e8de

But what if the photograph is not real?

As it turns out… it is nothing but Propaganda, staged to undoubtedly pull at your heartstrings! This photograph was taken just moments before the one posted above:

8aca6c357e0384b754ea884041646b68

Needless to say, the Saudi photographer who took the photographs is “ticked off” that his “artwork” has been exposed, claiming it’s just “not fair” and is being “taken out of context”!

The bottom line: You should be skeptical of much of the news coming out of Syria. Both Assad and the rebels have elaborate propaganda operations, though the state’s far outstrips the opposition operations. Both sides have a vested interest in tricking you into believing their version of events.

Media’s ‘Useful Idiots’

Lenin_CL_Colour

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propagandist

This morning as I walked into the post office, I could not help but notice that the propagandists, also known as “useful idiots,” are hard at work attempting to continue deceiving the American people into believing that Obamacare is what is needed to further the good of the people at large. That is, to take from the “haves” and give to the “have-nots,” only to serve corrupt government’s purposes – when in fact, the opposite is true.

Russian revolutionary and propagandist Vladimir Lenin said, “A good communist finds use for everything, and nothing is more useful than a useful idiot.”

Today, on a daily basis, we see media propagandists fronting for this administration and special interests.

Thomas Jefferson rightly said, “If your government is big enough to give you everything you want, it is big enough to take away everything you have.”

Throwing off all of the warnings that our forefathers have given, these “useful idiots” would have you overlook the corruption that is coming forth from this administration on a daily basis. They attempt to divert your attention from the facts, namely “The Law of the Land,” so that you will believe their contrived and fabricated lies, only to further their agenda.

Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional (Article I, Section 8, of the United States Constitution). It only becomes effective if the people fall into line with this administration’s unlawful and unconstitutional procedures.

In order to pull the mask off of those who affront our liberties, below is some information that will help you understand what you are up against.

Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman, two media scholars, interviewed 240 news anchors, editors and news writers. Here is what they found:

  • 47 percent believe adultery (cheating on your spouse) is OK (Exodus 20:14). This is illegal!
  • 76 percent see nothing wrong with homosexuality. “Crimes Against Nature!” (Romans 1:26, Leviticus 18:22). This is illegal!
  • 90 percent are for aborting babies. (Exodus 20:13) This is illegal! (Abortion has never been legalized! It may look like law, smell like law and may even have the color of law, but it is, in fact, not law!)
  • 86 percent seldom or never attend church.

 

Knowing that these people front for corruption, it is also important for the American people to know that the state-run-media, “useful idiots,” have less than a 21 percent approval rating. And folks, I have not even brought into the equation the “ground feeders” (you know them as “bloggers”) that work toward America’s demise right along with the state-run media, whom they emulate.

One of the tactics of this administration is to have you believe that they have “more numbers” than they actually do.

 

 

One should ask, “If they have all of this support, why then, would they have to lie?” Let me answer that for you: because they do not have the support! Headlines now declare, “White House scrambles to secure support for Obamacare.” (Leviticus 26:17-18)

 

 

I know that America is now in some serious and even dangerous times. It seems as if all hope is gone, but I would like to remind you, my friends, that hope is found in what you do with the truth you have been given. Do all that you can and leave the results up to God.

America, we can do this. (Psalm 119:90)

Think the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case was bad? You should see what MSNBC and Rachel Maddow did to Bradlee Dean. Help his lawsuit against them. Stand for America and get your free gift.

Actress Alyssa Milano creates ‘sex tape’ for Syria attack propaganda

alyssa_milano_sex_tape

YouTube Description:

Actress Alyssa Milano has created a fake ‘sex tape’ which serves to propagandize for an attack on Syria.

The PR stunt, designed to “inform” people about the situation in Syria, merely regurgitates the official narrative about Assad being behind last month’s chemical weapons attack which violated Barack Obama’s “red line”.

It makes no mention of the other side of the debate, including the UN’s acknowledgment that the FSA rebels used chemical weapons back in March or last week’s report by Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak which contained interviews with rebels who admitted being responsible for the chemical weapons incident in Ghouta.

While the video, which originally featured on FunnyorDie.com, will by no means achieve the same viral success as Kony 2012, it is certainly directed at a similar audience judging by its total lack of nuance or intellectual sophistication.

Domestic Propaganda – Here It Comes

manure



manure
Have you ever heard of the Smith-Mundt Act, the "United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948" (its official name)? It was signed by Harry Truman on January 27, 1948, in order to "… combat the ‘weapons of false propaganda and misinformation’ that was preventing understanding of America’s policies, …[.]" It was initially intended to establish facilities to broadcast to foreigners "… the ‘urgent, forthright, and dynamic measures to disseminate the truth.’"   [emphasis mine]   The act established, among others, the Voice of America (VOA) and Radio Free Europe (RFE).


One original objective of the Smith-Mundt Act was to prevent the US government from broadcasting material it generated to US citizens. But that situation changed on July 2, 2013, as enacted in the "Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012," part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDSA) for Fiscal Year 2013.


The NDSA amended the Smith–Mundt Act, thus allowing materials (spelled "propaganda") produced by the State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to be broadcast to the US public. The NDSA struck down a long standing prohibition on the dissemination of such material in the US. US citizens have not, in the past, had to listen to government sponsored propaganda broadcasts. Now, however, Obama has concluded that enough US citizens are sufficiently stupid enough that they can be plied with taxpayer funded lies that sound as if they are truthful messages from "a caring government."


In an attempt to justify BBG actions, spokesperson Lynne Weil
said,
"Those people [the Samolis in St. Paul, MN] can get al-Shabab, they can get Russia Today, but they couldn’t get access to their taxpayer-funded news sources like VOA Somalia. It was silly.” "Now
Americans will be able to know more about what they are paying for with their tax dollars — greater transparency is a win-win for all involved."


That sounds great. And it would be if the BBG and the State Department would stop there. History, however, suggests otherwise. Or if the State Department could be trusted (can anyone say "Benghazi?").


But (and there’s always a "but" when Obama and his administration are involved), if anyone needs a reminder of the dangers of domestic propagana, the Obama administration provides ample reasons:



Propaganda was a way of life in the USSR. The US, under Obama, has adopted Marxism, so government propaganda will now be a part of every US citizen’s daily brain training. Where is the MSM on this? Not a peep from them. And they will be the first to be shut down or become a government tool. Talk about being in Obama’s hip pocket. What’s really sad is that a majority of US citizens bought Obama’s propaganda and re-elected him, even as he was using his informal propaganda machine, the MSM. We ain’t seen nothin’
yet!


Bend over, because here it comes. What’s worst is that we taxpayers are paying for this propaganda, this coming manure spreading. Thank GOD for web sites like Conservative Daily News.

But that’s just my opinion

News v. Propaganda: The Danger of Losing a Check & Balance

propaganda

As illustrated by today’s mainstream media, there is a very fine line between news reporting and the act of propagandizing. The aware understand that news reporting consists of the sometimes painful process of conveying the “who, what, where, when, why and how” of a story, while at the very same time expunging the reporter’s opinion and bias from the report. This is true reporting; this is true journalism.

Today, especially in the mainstream media — and beginning most often in the schools of journalism, aspiring reporters and established journalists alike routinely inject opinion, bias and emotion into their reporting. Intentionally or not, this is the blatant manipulation of the news; the manipulation of the consumer, the American citizen, through propaganda, be it special interest, ideological or government driven.

ForeignPolicy. com reports:

“For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the US government’s mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic US consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for US domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?

“Until this month, a vast ocean of US programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. The programming varies in tone and quality, but its breadth is vast: It’s viewed in more than 100 countries in 61 languages. The topics covered include human rights abuses in Iran; self-immolation in Tibet; human trafficking across Asia; and on-the-ground reporting in Egypt and Iraq…

“A former US government source with knowledge of the BBG says the organization is no Pravda, but it does advance US interests in more subtle ways.”

The need for the federal government to even have a “news generating” journalistic arm is questionable. News releases meant to inform the people on the actions, policies and concerns of the federal government are routinely issued; and issued for the free press — which holds First Amendment Rights so that it can dig into said statements to assure honesty and accountability — to relate to the American people. In reality (and this is predicated on a press that is not corrupted for ideological purposes), the government/media relationship is supposed to afford the public with a check and balance on governmental power.

When the federal government is able to create the news and then report on its own creation, there is no avenue for a check and balance. And when there is no avenue for a check and balance the atmosphere is ripe for the arrogance of power; when there is no avenue to hold the federal government accountable for the information they “issue” to the people, there is, inherently, a move to propagandize, even in the most innocent of ways.

Today, the Obama Administration has proven time and time again that its idea of “transparent government,” is anything but.

The Obama Administration’s idea of transparency in government requires those seeking accurate information to file multiple Freedom of Information Act requests, for Congress to issue subpoenas, and in some instances for Congress to even hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt of Congress for his refusal to be forthright and penchant to mislead.

Today, the National Security Agency gathers information on American citizens who have done nothing to warrant their Fourth Amendment Rights to be transgressed, while the Director of National Intelligence tells congressional committees that they do no such thing and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation exists clueless as to who is supposed to be investigating the matter.

Today, the Internal Revenue Service targets Conservative non-profit groups for audit based on their political beliefs, even as everyone involved in that corrupt and criminal process scurries from responsibility like rats leaving a sinking ship, doing so while the team leader of the “gang of hate” pleads her Fifth Amendment Right to avoid self-incrimination.

And now, on the eve of the holiday on which the entire country celebrates the anniversary of the most courageous act in the history of man; a quest for liberty against the world’s pre-eminent power of the age; an oppressive and totalitarian regime that stifled the rights and freedoms of its own people, we witness perhaps the second most radically ideological federal administration in American history — led by a man who stated publicly that he believes the Constitution of the United States is flawed, quietly unleashing the power of one of the most powerful propaganda machines in the world on its own people under the guise of transparency.

Maybe it’s just me, but questions come to mind where this revelation is concerned. With the mainstream media being so incredibly “in bed” with this administration, why would they need to have this propaganda effort? And, given that the mainstream media has been “carrying the water” for this elected group of radical ideologues (which in and of itself conjures up the images of Chavez, Castro, Ahmadinejad and Putin), what can be so intricate, so important, so “it’s got to be just right” that they couldn’t trust their info-lackeys to deliver the message with fidelity?

My fellow Americans, I don’t know about you, but this simply doesn’t smell right. And with the current administrations record of clandestine activity — crafting legislation with the help of labor unions behind closed doors, myriad scandals that target the American people and political foes alike, and their overall distrust of the very people they were elected to serve — can we really be sure they can be trusted with such a potent “weapon”?

Perhaps we should ask the people of the former Soviet Union if this is a wise move. Perhaps, we should recall the warnings issued by the soon to be oppressed and slaughtered of pre-Hitler Germany.

Perhaps, just perhaps, it is time to wake-up and call this administration on what it really is…

Obama’s Weekly Address: Using Sandy Hook Victims For Propaganda

Obama raises taxes - insanity

Never let a crisis go to waste, and this national tragedy is just the crisis Obama needed!

white_house

 

From The White House:

Remarks of Francine Wheeler
The President’s Weekly Address

Hi. As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not the President. I’m just a citizen. And as a citizen, I’m here at the White House today because I want to make a difference and I hope you will join me.

My name is Francine Wheeler. My husband David is with me. We live in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

David and I have two sons. Our older son Nate, soon to be 10 years old, is a fourth grader at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Our younger son, Ben, age six, was murdered in his first-grade classroom on December 14th, exactly 4 months ago this weekend.

David and I lost our beloved son, but Nate lost his best friend. On what turned out to be the last morning of his life, Ben told me, quite out of the blue, “ I still want to be an architect, Mama, but I also want to be a paleontologist, because that’s what Nate is going to be and I want to do everything Nate does.”

Ben’s love of fun and his excitement at the wonders of life were unmatched His boundless energy kept him running across the soccer field long after the game was over. He couldn’t wait to get to school every morning. He sang with perfect pitch and had just played at his third piano recital. Irrepressibly bright and spirited, Ben experienced life at full tilt.

Until that morning. 20 of our children, and 6 of our educators – gone. Out of the blue.

I’ve heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our country felt on 12/14 has receded. But not for us. To us, it feels as if it happened just yesterday. And in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other Americans have died at the end of a gun. Thousands of other families across the United States are also drowning in our grief.

Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy.

Sometimes, I close my eyes and all I can remember is that awful day waiting at the Sandy Hook Volunteer Firehouse for the boy who would never come home – the same firehouse that was home to Ben’s Tiger Scout Den 6. But other times, I feel Ben’s presence filling me with courage for what I have to do – for him and all the others taken from us so violently and too soon.

We have to convince the Senate to come together and pass commonsense gun responsibility reforms that will make our communities safer and prevent more tragedies like the one we never thought would happen to us.

When I packed for Washington on Monday, it looked like the Senate might not act at all. Then, after the President spoke in Hartford, and a dozen of us met with Senators to share our stories, more than two-thirds of the Senate voted to move forward.

But that’s only the start. They haven’t yet passed any bills that will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. And a lot of people are fighting to make sure they never do.

Now is the time to act. Please join us. You can talk to your Senator, too. Or visit WhiteHouse.gov to find out how you can join the President and get involved.

Help this be the moment when real change begins. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Hamas’ Claims: True or False?

Hamas propaganda

Hamas makes wild claims of success against Israel probably in an effort to entice Islamist groups and nations to continue to send weapons and money. Watch the video and check their claims for yourself.

(h/t @galtsgirl)

One of the top comments on YouTube.com illustrates the compassion and frustration Israelis have for Palestinians. If Hamas would stop attacking Israel from Gaza, Israel would have no reason to strike back:

I guess you don’t know that that israeli is holding back..

if we WEREN’T holding back, believe me, and i can sign my life for it, you would be dead by now.

israel CAN delete ALL OF GAZA in COUPLE MINUTES.

but we don’t do that, why? becuase we CARE about civilians, unlike you the terrorist which the only target their looking for is harming people, no matter who they are.

we keep shipping you food, water, electricity, and many more things that keep you alive.

Paul Krugman: “Natural Born Liar”

Paul Krugman, he of the once-great N.Y. Times recently penned the article  Natural Born Drillers , in which he makes completely outlandishly false claims about the number of jobs created by the oil and gas industry, to go along with his usual fallacy-floundering Liberal propaganda punditry. Mr. Krugman finished up his latest ( and already discredited) propaganda piece with the following lines: (emphasis added)

“The rest of the answer is simply the fact that conservatives have no other job-creation ideas to offer.  And intellectual bankruptcy, I’m sorry to say, is a problem that no amount of drilling and fracking can solve.”

Speaking of blatant intellectual bankruptcy, here is a great example of it, pulled right from Krugman’s latest puff-piece masquerading as holier-than-thou opinion-speak from the great Liberal “Doctor of Propaganda” of the N.Y. Times:  “Employment in oil and gas extraction has risen more than 50 percent since the middle of the last decade, but that amounts to only 70,000 jobs, around one-twentieth of 1 percent of total U.S. employment. So the idea that drill, baby, drill can cure our jobs deficit is basically a joke.”

A person would in fact, have to be worse than intellectually bankrupt to print that piece of propaganda right there, when we look at these facts from Steve Maley:

  Indeed, the industry subsector called “Oil and Gas Extraction: NAICS 211″, (part of the Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction sector) shows the gain in jobs he describes, from roughly 120,000 jobs in 2004 to about 190,000 now. And he apparently stopped there.  190,000 jobs? Doesn’t that seem kinda low for an industry that comprises 8% or so of the economy?

Well, of course it is, because lots of oil industry jobs are counted in other categories. Most notably, the related subsector “Support Activities for Mining: NAICS 213″.

In NAICS 211, you find geologists, draftsmen and petroleum engineers like me, employed directly by the oil companies. NAICS 213 contains people that work for the “service companies” who work for the oil companies. These companies would include Halliburton, Transocean and Schlumberger, the companies that drill, frack, service and equip the wells. Job titles include roughnecks, roustabouts and service pump operators.

NAICS 213 is twice as big as NAICS 211: 379,100 at last count. NAICS 213 is where you find the really explosive job growth: nearly 200,000 jobs since 2004, including almost 70,000 just in the last year.

Mr. Maley is a petroleum engineer, unlike “Dr. Krugman” who, as far as anyone can prove, has never worked a day in his life, let alone worked anywhere in the energy industry. (other than trying to pass his intellectually bankrupt propaganda-punditry onto the uninformed citizenry of America under the guise of journalism)

Of course Krugman also uses his latest propaganda piece to bash Republicans for wanting to drill baby drill, by trying to make the already discredited statement that, “More and more, Republicans are telling us that gasoline would be cheap and jobs plentiful if only we would stop protecting the environment and let energy companies do whatever they want.”  Krugman makes the jaw-dropping straw man argument of implying that oil and gas companies are not regulated at all and can just “do what they want” to supposedly ruin the environment.  Colorado alone just mandated a whole slew of new rules and regulations for oil and gas extraction and environmental protection. The Marcellus Shale Corporation  exposed the ludicrous “end of pipe” water quality mandates in Pennsylvania as follows:  “There is not a single water treatment facility in Pennsylvania that could meet this unreasonable benchmark, which will not provide any additional environmental benefit.” North Dakota also has new oil regulations starting April 1st of this year. Does that information in any way point to an oil and gas industry that, as Krugman states, would “let energy companies do whatever they want?” No it doesn’t.

When it comes to actually reporting the facts, Mr. Krugman falls way short of anything even remotely connected to the truth, as we can see in his latest opinion piece claiming that oil and gas extraction of the “middle ” of the past decade has only resulted in 70,000 jobs. Krugman’s propaganda runs parallel to Obama’s recent campaign speeches in which the misinformation about oil and gas industry job creation runs rampant, as is also proven here:

A booming U.S. oil and gas sector was responsible for generating some 9 percent of all new jobs last year, with three indirect jobs for every one directly involved in the industry, a study released on Wednesday found. The report said the oil and gas industry contributed 37,000 direct jobs in 2011, which led to the creation of an additional 111,000 indirect jobs during the same period. It said the multiplier effect for solar and wind energy were lower during operation, but higher at up to 3.3 times during construction.

The U.S. oil and gas industry added 148,000 jobs in 2011 alone Mr. Krugman, which debunks your very simplistic cherry-picking of statistics from the “middle of the last decade” statistical usage to make the false-flag argument about future oil and gas industry job creation that you used in your now debunked Natural Born Drillers article. Man, these Liberals posing as intellectual academics are shameless in their neanderthalic attempts at parroting blatant lies posing as the truth today, and Mr. Krugman is obviously no exception.

 

 

Politics Made Simple: Let Liberals Pay for All Abortion Pills

During the debate about Barack Obama’s recent big government attempts to mandate that religious organizations pay for free contraceptive and after-the-fact abortion pills, there has been very little discussion of the fact that these abortion pills are seen by many Americans as a way to commit legal murder by killing a developing fetus while it is still in the womb. Also of note is that when people do a browser search for “abortion pill” Planned Parenthood  is the very first “recommended by google” site to come up. No health professionals, no doctor’s groups, and no scientific studies are even in the top 10 search results for abortion pills. That is blatant internet media manipulation designed to nudge people’s perceptions of what is right or wrong in America today, and I for one find it a disgusting disservice to all Americans, especially young women thinking about having an abortion.

Here are a few of the young mind-maniputaling tidbits being spread nationwide by Planned Parenthood, many times by using your tax dollars: ( emphasis added at times)

What is the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is a medicine that ends an early pregnancy. In general, it can be used up to 63 days — 9 weeks — after the first day of a woman’s last period. Women who need an abortion and are more than 9 weeks pregnant can have an in-clinic abortion.

The name for “the abortion pill” is mifepristone. It was called RU-486 when it was being developed.

That Planned Parenthood definition of the abortion pill is the equivalent of saying that rat poison is a medicine to treat rats. It is that simple.

What happens during a “Medication” abortion?

It’s common for women to be nervous about having a medication abortion — or any other medical procedure. But many of us feel better if we know what to expect.

What they fail to tell young women are the lifelong feelings of  guilt and shame many women suffer with for the rest of their lives, all because the “experts” at Planned Parenthood steadfastly and irresponsibly refuse to tell this side of the story.

Under Step 3, the follow-up visit after taking the abortion pill:

You will need to follow up within two weeks. Follow-up is important to make sure your abortion is complete and that you are well. You will need an ultrasound or blood test.

In the unlikely event that you are still pregnant, your health care provider will discuss your options with you. It’s likely you will need to have an aspiration abortion if the medication abortion did not end the pregnancy.

So just what is the innocent-sounding aspiration abortion?  According to Web MD  it is also known more fittingly as a suction abortion or a vacuum abortion. The manual vacuum abortion is when they use a syringe to suck the fetus tissue out, while the machine vacuum method uses a machine which involves the use of a hollow tube (cannula) that is attached by tubing to a bottle and a pump, which provides a gentle vacuum. The cannula is passed into the uterus, the pump is turned on, and the tissue is gently removed from the uterus. Note that nowhere in the Web MD description of these types of abortions is the word “aspiration” as Planned Parenthood refers to it.

Planned Parenthood also tries to imply that they do not receive any tax dollars to promote their main agenda: abortion-promotion.  That is a blatant lie, as can be seen in the article titled, Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report: Got $487.4 million in Tax Money, Did 329,445 Abortions.

The Liberal-in-Chief, Barack Obama wants all Americans to pick up the tab for the sectors of American society’s irresponsibility and pay for abortion pills, against the main beliefs of a large sector of American society who view abortion as murder and a disservice to young, naive, pregnant women. So here is a suggestion: Since Liberal nanny-state worshipers want young women across America to have the abortion pills, let them pay for it. Take the millions of tax dollars being used to finance Planned Parenthood’s abortion-selling agenda away from them, and let the Liberal elitists in the media and elected public office donate their own cash for these abortion pills. We could even give proper credit to one of the main promoters of tax dollars being used for abortions in America today, Senator Barbara Boxer. We could name the new Liberal abortion-donation fund, the Barbara Boxer Buys Abortion Pills for Everyone, fund. Giving true credit where credit is due and all that.

Again, If it is such a great and noble cause, put your money where your Liberal rhetoric is and pony up a few million.  The fact is these Liberals are full of dishonest hot air when it comes to actually “helping people” with their own money. They only want to help people with other people’s hard-earned dollars, including the taxpayers purse, as proven by the above expose’ on just how many tax dollars went to Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills. The minute any elected official starts talking about de-funding the Liberal abortion mills of Planned Parenthood, Liberal mouthpieces like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer start screaming about women’s rights to proper health-care and “medicine.” More rat poison anyone?

D.A.M Chief DWS Exposes Herself.. Again

DNC [and Democratic Attack Machine] Chairman Debbie Wassermann-Schultz made another appearance on national television recently, in which she makes her usual ludicrous, and totally discredited comments about the “American people,” this time attempting to say that “Real America” just loves Obama-care..  among other things. Check out the video:

After the host of the show quotes several recent poll results showing that as more Americans discover just how dysfunctional and expensive Obama-care will truly be and want it repealed, DWS says no, and that basically that’s not true.  (Hint: the host was stating polling from Americans Debbie, not the unicorn-riding puppets on the planet Saturn) Also note that in the Democratic party’s mathematically-challenged world, when the host asked DWS to sum up the 2012 Republican presidential candidate field in ONE WORD, she replies with a slew of D.A.M hate-speech fueled attacks and outright lies, including calling them extremists, on immigration policy [for wanting U.S. law enforced] and tax policy [for wanting a limited government and no taxation without representation that includes no big government tax hikes] and then going so far as to say Republicans want to deny women health-care.

In the immortal words of Doc Holliday, ” It would appear that her hypocrisy knows no bounds.” Talk about out of touch with reality. Reality is coming Debbie, it is coming in the form of a 2010 election-style rebuking of the Liberal [fake] Democratic Party’s big government debt-spending and skyrocketing gas and energy prices of the past 4 years. Reality in the form of the 2012 national elections where “we the people” will say that we have had enough of the out-of-touch-with-reality Obama administration and it’s Liberal minions in Congress. It is time for real solutions for America.

Jack Lew: Obama’s Newest Propaganda-Puppet

President Obama has had problems retaining his administration’s  Chief’s of Staff position filled during his first [ and only] term in office. First came fellow Chicago Democrat Rahm Emanual, who was replaced by another Chicago Democrat, William Daley, only to see him replaced by the latest White House Chief of Staff, Mr. Jack Lew. The Daily Caller explains Obama’s picks for the White House Chief of Staff positions as follows:

All three of President Barack Obama’s chiefs of staff earned millions of dollars after passing through the revolving doors that lie between the Democratic Party and Wall Street. Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley, and now Jacob Lew, are all career Democrats who have taken lucrative trips through those revolving doors, eliciting jeers from Republicans who say Obama is running an administration of crony-capitalists.

Meet the latest White House Chief Jack Lew. Mr. Lew is the former Obama-appointed budget officer who came to the White House via banking giant Citigroup where Lew spent 3 years heading up the Alternative Investments unit. Citigroup paid Jack Lew over $2 million dollars in 2009 salary and bonuses, basically for profiting in investments that bet on the housing and mortgage crisis. Of course when Citigroup lost billions of dollars due to geniuses like Jack Lew betting on the crisis,the taxpayer paid off those losses in the 2008, 2009 bailout packages. Meanwhile, Jack Lew still kept his millions of dollars in crony-fatcat bonuses and salary. This surely qualified him to be Barack Obama’s latest Chief of Staff, considering that the previous 2 Chief’s of Staff also had a direct involvement in the housing and mortgage collapse.

                    Jacob, “Jack” Lew  also served as the Director of the Office of Budget and management from 1998-2001. Lew was an “Special Assistant” to President Clinton in ’93-’94, only to then be injected into OMB by Clinton as an Executive Associate Director and Associate Director for Legislative Affairs from 1995-1998. ( a glorious-sounding title for a political operative/lobbyist)  Fast forward to today, and we see that Jack Lew is in fact, just another White House political-propagandist appointee who has been appointed to his position to spread Barack Obama’s misinformation.

  The proof behind that statement can be found here, where Jack Lew was exposed on national TV when he made the statement that Obama’s latest budget proposal can not pass the U.S. Senate simply because it “takes 60 votes to pass  it.” As Larry Kudlow points out there,  it only takes 51 Senate votes to pass Obama’s budget proposal, and there are currently 53 Democrats serving in the U.S senate. So why would the very experienced White House Chief of Staff, former assistant for budgetary legislative affairs at the OMB, and former fat-cat-Citigroup lobbyist  Jack Lew all of a sudden state that Obama’s budget is “dead in the water’ simply due to the misstatement that it takes 60, not the factual 51 votes to pass it in the Senate? Simply put, because Jack Lew is nothing more than a political propagandist spewing misinformation on national TV to protect Barack Obama’s most recent episode of Budgetary Buffoonery.

 Obama’s budget will never receive a vote in the U.S. Senate, simply because it is controlled by Democrat Harry Reid, and to do so in an election year would expose not only Barack Obama’s much-hoped-for trillion-dollar deficits for the next 10 years if passed, but it would also put Reid’s fellow Senate Democrats on the hot seat if they were forced to vote for it. ( a whopping 23 of which are up for reelection in 2012) Jack Lew is no rookie when it comes to budgetary legislative policy and procedure, as can be evidenced in his past positions as Clinton’s chief OMB lobbyist and influence peddler back in the 90’s.

   Yet Jack Lew goes on national TV recently, and promotes the lie that Obama’s budget is dead in the water in the U.S. Senate, alluding ( or trying to) to Obama’s reelection campaign [that is running against the do-nothing Congress] that includes falsely accusing Republicans of being obstructionists. This is exactly what House Speaker Boehner has done recently in Calling Harry Reid’s Bluff  on the payroll tax cut battle.  He wants the House to pass a clean tax cut extension bill and force Harry Reid and the Democrats to vote on it in the Senate. Just like Obama’s budget, Harry Reid will refuse to bring the clean tax cut extension up for a vote in the Senate.

Meanwhile the media operatives just love to publish Jack Lew’s recent misinformation,( without correction) while also refusing to point out the facts about what Harry Reid is doing in the Senate. They are all working for the Obama2012 reelection campaign and the truth be damned.

Reporter Blows the Lid Off DNC “Secret Media Meeting”

The Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C. this year. As The Charlotte Observer reports, the DNC committee has decided to shorten the 2012 national convention from 4 days to three, and has also decided to move the events to Charlotte’s two biggest outdoor arenas, Bank of America Stadium and Charlotte Motor Speedway. On Thursday, Mark Washburn, also a reporter with The Charlotte Observer, expressed his dismay  about the way 500 reporters that were called to the BOA stadium for a tour of their new September digs for the DNC convention this year, in which were told that the meeting would be strictly “off the record” and kept hush-hush, as in no telling folks what was said at this meeting.

It wasn’t the price of reporting this years event that rankled Mr. Washburn, which includes their designated “spots” to do their stand up reporting going for $1200 to $1800 bucks, or the six packs of Budweiser having to be bought from the areas vendor for $31.50 a pop, or even the revelation that the “media suites” would cost the reporter’s expense accounts about $25 grand.  All of that was taken with a grain of salt, as many media elitists stated, “it was less than they paid in Denver four years ago.” What rankled Mr. Washburn during the media tour for the 2012 DNC convention was the “cone of silence” demanded of them during the first order of business discussion. Mr. Washburn had the audacity to stand up to speak out against being told that things discussed at this meeting would be “off the record.” In his own words,  Mr. Washburn doesn’t like off- the-record. He prefers in-the-newspaper.  Good for him.

So what happened when Mr. Washburn stood up and spoke out against the gestapo-style cone of silence being imposed on them by Karen Burchard, the director of media logistics for this event? Mr. Theodore LeCompte, the chief operating officer for the convention committee promptly stood up and set Mr. Washburn straight: “If there are issues with the ground rules, you are perfectly welcome not to attend this session,” he said.  This comes a day after the DNC,  in announcing this years changes to the convention also promised to make it the “the most open and accessible in history.” Where have we heard that kind of false rhetoric before? Oh yes, during Barack Obama’s 2008 undefined hope and change campaign where we were told he would run the “most open and transparent” administration in history if elected.  This most recent statement of open and accessible DNC propaganda concerning this years convention, is just as credible today as it was back in 2008, which has now been proven to be just a bunch of hot air and Democratic party propaganda.

In another show of gestapo-style information management at this “media meeting”, popped up when Mr. Washburn notes that around lunchtime, “Chris Miller, morning news reporter on WBT-AM (1110) and one of the journalists in town you probably don’t want to push around, had been pulled aside by a convention press aide. She was concerned about a tweet he had sent that began, “DNC official just announced everything is now off-the-record.” He says she reminded him everything was off the record. Real-time monitoring of reporters tweets at a media meeting? Censorship comes to mind there, real nasty thugocracy and media bullying 101 on full display for all to see. Of course the DNC “director of communications and public affairs”, Kristie Greco takes openness and transparency to a whole new level when Mr. Washburn confronted her about being approached by DNC staff and told to shush. “Those are off-the-record conversations,” she said. “We will not confirm these conversations.”

 

Somewhere, Josef Goebbels is sure to be smiling at this blatant example of  DNC media manipulation  and the usage of progressive propaganda to make people think the DNC convention is all about “openness and accessibility.”  ( while swearing reporters to secrecy)
