The Truth about Texas Job Growth

Monday, August 29th, 2011
(Liberals, please go look up the definition of “truth” before proceeding)
Obama and his loony tune financial advisers seem to think that doing all things Keynesian will get the economy back on track.

We’d love to see a Rick Perry vs. Jerry Brown death match on the next UFC card.

It seems that Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher has a different take on things and uses Texas as a shining example:

On Wednesday, Richard Fisher, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, gave a speech in which he separated “fact from fiction” about the record of job creation in Texas.

We can help but wonder whose fiction he was talking about?

Problem Solver: Green Jobs

Monday, August 29th, 2011

The greatest idea in history: How to solve the budget, poverty, obesity  and energy problems simultaneously

We bow to the genius of Walter Russell Mead. In fact, this is one guy we wouldn’t mind seeing President Obama bow to.

Mead’s article at TheAmericanInterest.com explains that green jobs are complete nonsense or, if you prefer, complete B.S.:

The belief that green jobs would drive a new era of American prosperity was — like the large majority of green policy chat — intellectually incoherent. The goods that drive renewable energy industries, like so much else in this world, are far cheaper to construct in Asia. As the NYT piece describes, SolFocus, a widely-celebrated solar power company based, only has 90 employees at their San Jose headquarters. The solar panels are assembled in China. Whether a product is an ordinary t-shirt or an admirable piece of world saving green technology like a wind turbine has zilch, zero, nada influence on the mind of the manufacturer trying to decide where it should be made.

Get ready. Here comes the idea that’s destined to win Mead a shelf full of Nobels:

Must Be Nice in the Vineyard: Part Two

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA

Obama Jets Off To Martha’s Vineyard, Leaving Americans To Deal With The Consequences Of His Failed Economic Policies

EVEN OBAMA’S DEMOCRAT ALLIES ARE WONDERING HOW HE CAN PROMOTE JOB CREATION FROM THE BEACH

“President Obama’s Plans For A La-Di-Da Vacation With The Glitterati On Martha’s Vineyard This Week Are Now Drawing Friendly Fire From The Ranks Of His Own Party, As The Nation Remains Deeply Mired In Economic Turmoil.” (Chris Cassidy, “Dems Bop President Obama For His Vacay,” The Boston Herald,8/16/11)

Newton, MA Mayor Says Obama Should Cancel Martha’s Vineyard Vacation. “Despite the ongoing financial crisis President Obama is planning to take his Martha’s Vineyard vacation. But Newton mayor and Democratic Senate candidate Setti Warren is calling the President out for taking time off.“ (“Newtown Mayor Calls Obama Out For Taking Time Off” WHDH-TV [Boston, MA], 8/11/11)   Click To Watch

Even Obama Supporters Think Obama Should Cancel His Trip Due To The “Urgency” Of The Nation’s Economic Troubles. “Some of his supporters believe the economic slowdown has reached a level of urgency that he should at least abbreviate the family trip, if not cancel it altogether.” (Peter Nicholas, “As Some Call For Bold Strokes, Obama Sticks With Vacation Plans,” Los Angeles Times, 8/10/11)

  • One Major Democrat Donor Said, “If There Were A Real Jobs Summit And A Jobs Push, I Would Feel Much Better. We’re Not Paying Enough Attention To Jobs.” “‘I think he can shorten his vacation and focus on this issue,’ said Peter Buttenwieser, a major Democratic donor who counts himself as an admirer of Obama. ‘If there were a real jobs summit and a jobs push, I would feel much better. We’re not paying enough attention to jobs.’” (Peter Nicholas, “As Some Call For Bold Strokes, Obama Sticks With Vacation Plans,” Los Angeles Times, 8/10/11)
  • “’I Believe That The President Should Consider Postponing His Vacation And Call Congressional Leaders Back To Washington To Propose Serious Jobs Legislation To Present To Congress For Immediate Legislative Action,’ U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) Said In A Statement To The Herald.” (Chris Cassidy, “Dems Bop President Obama For His Vacay,” The Boston Herald, 8/16/11)

The Washington Post’s Colbert King: “But to be leaving town to spend 10 days luxuriating in an affluent, New England summer town when millions of Americans can’t find work? To fly off to the Vineyard when the public is losing faith in Washington’s ability to fix the nation’s economic problems, and with people anxious about their futures? What is he thinking? It’s not as if the Obama family is living in deprivation in Washington.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” The Washington Post,8/16/11)

“This Is No Time For The President To Dwell In Splendid Seclusion Among The Rich And Famous. Barack Obama’s Got Business To Attend To.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” Washington Post,8/16/11)

“He Should Use This Summer To Spend Some Time With Folks Who Can’t Afford To Take A Vacation. And Not Just In Iowa, Illinois And Minnesota, Which Happen To Be States That He Won In 2008.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” The Washington Post,8/16/11)

Obama Is Still Going To Martha’s Vineyard, “As If In A State Of Oblivion.” “Our president will go to Martha’s Vineyard on vacation this week. Reporters asked him if he was still going to go, considering the desperate shape the country was in, with millions out of work and others losing their retirement savings. As if in a state of oblivion, he said yes.” (Editorial, “Can Obama Succeed?” The Buffalo News, 8/16/11)

“In A Perverse Way, Perhaps There’s No Difference Between Obama Doing Nothing In Washington And Doing Nothing For The Country While On Vacation.” (Editorial, “Can Obama Succeed?” The Buffalo News, 8/16/11)

WHILE OBAMA VACATIONS, THE REST OF AMERICA DEALS WITH 9.1PERCENT UNEMPLOYMENT, A VOLATILE STOCK MARKET, AND AN UNPRECEDENTED DOWNGRADE OF THE COUNTRY’S CREDIT RATING

The Jobs Crisis Is America’s “Chief Concern” And “The Biggest Drain On Our Economy.” “It’s Americans’ chief concern. The biggest drain on our economy. The greatest threat to our future and our children’s future. No, it’s not the debt ceiling or the budget deficit. It’s the jobs crisis — the fact that we’re stuck in a rut of tepid job growth and record high long-term unemployment, and seem hard pressed to do anything about it.” (Christine Owens, “Biggest Threat To Future? The Jobs Crisis,” CNN, 8/4/11)

  • The Unemployment Rate Is 9.1%. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 8/16/11)
  • Since Obama Took Office, The Nation Has Lost 2,373, 000 Jobs. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 8/16/11)

Mark Zandi, Chief Economist For Moody’s, Believes The Economy Will Not Grow Enough To Add Jobs Fast Enough To Keep Unemployment Rate Stable. “‘The odds of a renewed recession over the next 12 months, already one in three, will increase if stock prices continue to fall,’ Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, says in the report. He said the economy must grow 2.5 percent to 3 percent a year to add jobs fast enough to keep the unemployment rate stable –something that won’t happen soon.” (“Moody’s Lowers US Economic Outlook Through 2012,” The Associated Press, 8/15/11)  Research:www.gop.com

Obama Failed America: The Economy by the Numbers

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA

President Obama: “They do expect that their President is going to be thinking about them every single day. And is going to be focused on how we win the future. And if next November they feel like I’ve been on their side, and I’ve been working as hard as I can, and I’ve been getting some things done to move us in the right direction, I’ll win. If they don’t, then I’ll lose. And that’s not to say the other candidate is irrelevant. But it does mean I’ll probably win or lose depending on their assessment of my stewardship.” (KMBC, 7/20/11)

Obama’s “Stewardship”:

Since President Obama Took Office, The Nation Has Lost 2.5 Million Jobs. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 7/21/11)

The Unemployment Rate Increased From 7.8 Percent To 9.2 Percent. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 7/21/11)

Since President Obama’s $831 Billion Stimulus Bill Passed The Unemployment Rate Has Increased From 8.2 Percent To 9.2 Percent. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 7/21/11)

Muslims to Defend Sharia Law in NY, NJ, TX

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA

It’s important to know what’s going on!

Please do all you can to stop this Speaker, even calling the State Department. He once was not allowed in the United States; why suddenly is he allowed in? ICNA Dallas, (Islamic Circle of North America), is holding a
fundraiser in Richardson TX on July 27th, 2011 (see announcement ).

As you may know, this organization promotes speakers that either advocate violence, or associate with those that do, in an effort to establish Shariah and a North American caliphate. According to the charts used by the FBI in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial, the group has direct ties to both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to the article referenced below, the purpose of the fundraiser is to defend and promote Shariah law in Texas and to organize and fund an effort to stop all future Texas anti-Shariah legislation. A primary guest speaker will be Dr. Tariq Ramadan (previously banned from the U.S), the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, the founding father of the Muslim Brotherhood.Posted on July 8, 2011 by creeping [H/T Sharon, Texas]

“Defend” meaning promote. It’s part of terror-linked ICNA’s National Sharia Campaign featuring the grandson of the founder of the infamous Muslim Brotherhood. The ‘Islamic Circle of North America’ or ICNA seeks an Islamic super-state governed by sharia law.
