Black Leaders Open Fire on Obama Over Unemployment

Townhall.com ^ | March 29, 2013 | Donald Lambro

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama's failed job policies are facing bitter criticism from African-American leaders who say black unemployment has grown worse under his presidency.
After four years of holding their tongues and remaining quiet in the face of sharply rising black unemployment and record poverty, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House.
Obama won 96 percent of the black vote in 2008 and about the same percentage in 2012, despite a worsening jobless crisis among African-Americans. At 14 percent for adults and 43.1 percent for 16-to-19-year-old teenagers, blacks still have the highest jobless rate of any minority group in the U.S.
Black leaders in Congress largely kept their complaints to themselves throughout Obama's first term in office and his re-election campaign. But no longer.
The nation's black leadership has become a great deal more vocal lately about severe unemployment, fewer job opportunities, and a weak, lackluster economy. They are especially unhappy with the fact that Obama has placed relatively few black officials in top level positions in his second term administration.
It didn't get that much media attention, but shortly after Obama was inaugurated in January, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous went on nationwide television to condemn Obama's weak job creation record, charging that black Americans "are doing a full point worse" than when Obama became president.
"The country's back to pretty much where it was when this president started," Jealous said on Meet The Press on Jan. 27.
The government's employment numbers maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics support Jealous' latest criticism. The black unemployment rate was 12.7 percent when President George W. Bush finished his second term and Obama took office.
It soared over the first three years of Obama's first term to 16.7 percent by September 2011 (the worst jobless rate for black Americans since 1983). Unemployment among black teenagers exploded to 39.3 percent in July, 2012.
"Statistics show that the African-American community is in bad shape under the Obama administration," the widely read web site "Your Black World" said this week.
Earlier this month, Democratic Rep. Marcia L. Fudge of Ohio, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, let loose with some stinging criticisms of Obama's record on his appointments in his second term.
"The people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country's diversity," she said in a letter to Obama. "Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you've received from the African-America community."
Fudge and other CBC members complain that Obama has not devoted enough attention in his agenda to many of the critical economic issues within the black community, especially rising unemployment.
"I think we are going to hear more voices of opposition coming from all sectors of black leadership, and certainly from the most hard pressed sections of the black population," said Dr. Tony Monteiro, professor of African American Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia.
Unfortunately, most black leaders do not understand that it is Obama's anti-growth, economic policies that have contributed to the persistently high level of unemployment among all Americans, especially African-Americans.
The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus still believe that Obama's $800 billion economic stimulus plan, largely made up of public works, infrastructure and other government spending, was the smart way to create jobs and boost economic growth. If anything, they wanted him to spend more.
But there were no economic growth incentives in his plan that would boost venture capital investment, the mother's milk of business expansion, new business formation and job creation.
Soon after Obama's stimulus plan became effective and the money began flowing out across the country, a look at the list of recipients revealed that it included hundreds of federal agencies and programs. It expanded government spending, and maybe some of the money trickled down to workers, but it created relatively few permanent jobs.
Once the stimulus funds were spent on roads, bridges and other public workers projects, the jobs ended.
The proof that Obama's Keynesian spending didn't work is in the numbers: high unemployment that is still skirting 8 percent, and it is actually 14 percent if you include workers who want and need full-time employment but are forced to take part-time jobs.
And the economy isn't getting stronger, as we can see in the economic growth numbers that measure the gross domestic product (GDP) that is the sum of everything we produce, sell and export. It grew at a barely-moving pace 0.4 percent in the last three months of 2012, according to the Commerce Department's latest estimate Thursday.
The Federal Reserve says unemployment will remain high this year and next and economic growth will remain weak for at least the next two years.
Now Obama is calling for a $9 an hour minimum wage which the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus has supported in the past and no doubt supports now. But this is a job killer, particularly for small businesses and especially for minorities. It will kill entry-level training jobs and that will drive black employment even higher.
In an interview with the College Fix web site, Antony Davies, an economics professor at Duquesne University, explains why: "When businesses -- especially small businesses -- are faced with increased labor costs due to minimum wage hikes, less valuable jobs are eliminated. After that, the extra workload is doled out to remaining employees."
Or as economist Murray Rothbard writes in his book, The Free Market, "In truth, there is only one way to regard a minimum wage law: it is compulsory unemployment, period."
Meantime, it is becoming increasingly self-evident that black leaders are getting fed up with the economic results of Obama's presidency. For the first time, they have begun to question and to criticize some of the economic policies that he still defends but that they now know aren't working

White House Demands American Sheriffs Enforce Gun Control! (FUO)

Freedom Outpost ^ | Mar. 29, 2013 | Tim Brown

It’s about to get real people. There are those in law enforcement who are standing for the law of the land and then there are the radical Socialists in Washington who seek to trample the law under their feet. Since a number of brave men in this country have come forward to state that as the supreme law enforcement officers in their counties they will not enforce new gun control laws, the Obama White House has demanded that they must.
The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has the support of at least 381 sheriffs and the cooperation of at least 15 state sheriff associations stating that they will not enforce federal or state gun laws they consider unconstitutional.
At a press conference on Tuesday, Jay Carney was asked by CNSNews.com, “There have been 381 sheriffs that have signed on saying they would not enforce gun laws they believed were unconstitutional. Would the administration have a problem if local law enforcement did not enforce whatever gun package were to pass?”
While Carney said he had not seen the list of sheriffs, probably like he claimed a video was responsible for Benghazi, he did say, “I think as a general proposition we think that people ought to follow the law. As an absolute matter of fact in my view, and I think many other constitutional experts, there’s not a single measure in this package of proposals the president has put forward that in anyway violates the Constitution. In fact, they reflect the president’s commitment to our Second Amendment rights.”
“When Rosa Parks didn’t give up her seat on the bus, should she have been arrested or should the police have escorted her home?” Mack said. “The law was to arrest her. It was a stupid, unconstitutional law.”

Obama Praises Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz in New Video!

lifenews ^ | Steven Ertelt

President Barack Obama has released a new video in which he praises the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, which is a prime endorser of his presidential re-election campaign.
“For you and for most Americans, protecting women’s health is a mission that stands above politics,” President Obama says in a video message for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “And yet over the past year we’ve had to stand up to politicians who wanted to deny millions of women the care they rely on and inject themselves into the decisions that are best made between a woman and her doctor.”
“Let’s be clear here, women are not an interest group. They’re mothers, and daughters, and sisters, and wives. They’re half of this country and they’re perfectly capable of making their own choices about their health,” Obama says.
The president attacks pro-life Republicans, who are seeking to replace him in the White House and prevent Obama from continuing to stack the Supreme Court with pro-abortion judges who will keep unlimited abortions in place under Roe v. Wade for an additional four decades.
“So when some professional politicians casually say that they’ll get rid of Planned Parenthood, don’t forget what they’re really talking about: eliminating the funding for preventive care that millions of women rely on and leaving them to fend for themselves. That’s why last year when Republicans in Congress threatened to shut down the government unless we stopped funding Planned Parenthood, I had a simple answer: no,” he said.
Planned Parenthood released the video in an email to supporters of the abortion business.
“I am proud to have President Obama on our side,” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said, saying she is “sending the president a message of support today.”
“President Obama gets it, and he hasn’t stopped fighting since his first day in office. He knows how important women’s health is, and he respects the right of every woman to make her own medical decisions,” Richards adds about Obama and abortion. “That’s why I hope you’ll join me in sending a message of support to President Obama today. And because the president is such a strong ally for women’s health and Planned Parenthood, he has a message for you, too.”
“I’m proud of President Obama’s determined efforts to advance the cause,” she concludes.
Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life of America, responded to the video.
“In the email I received this evening from Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Cecile Richards, PPFA President, asked supporters to send a thank you note to President Obama for “standing strong” for women’s healthcare. The email includes a link to a new video released yesterday by Planned Parenthood Votes. It’s a short video of President Obama thanking Planned Parenthood for their work. In the video, outrageous as it may seen given the extensive coverage of this issue, President Obama alludes to the fact the Planned Parenthood does mammograms,” she says.
“Somehow the White House has missed the memo that Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide mammograms. How could they have missed that?” Hawkins continued. “Any why is Planned Parenthood posting videos that say as much, when they have already been caught in the lie?”

Sequestration: Obama Spends $350 Million On Sexual Indoctrination Classes For Children!

Freedom Outpost ^ | Mar. 29, 2013 | Tim Brown

Editor’s Note: Graphic descriptions follow (You were warned). What’s that you say about sequestration and consequences of it? Apparently Barack Obama talks about sequestration pains, while he and his family is indulging in vacations at our expense, but there’s more. In light of the current cases concerning sodomites at the Federal lever seeking to undermine and redefine marriage, the Obama administration is spending $350 million to indoctrinate children sexually.

While the White House says sequestration has eliminated funds for children touring the White House, President Obama has no problem spending $350 million federal tax dollars for sexual indoctrination programs starting in kindergarten for those same children.

This is not your grandmother’s sex education about how things work and what can go “wrong.” In fact, the exact opposite is the essence of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP):

Obamacare funnels $75 million annually into PREP, which must be used exclusively for Planned Parenthood-style “comprehensive” sex ed programs where no type of sex is wrong and the only sexual behavior PP considers “unsafe” is becoming pregnant.

More than one-fourth of the funds ‒ $20 million ‒ has been awarded to a coalition of six Planned Parenthood affiliates, operating under the name Northwest Coalition for Adolescent Health, to implement HHS’s TOP program across Montana, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Alaska at over 50 sites. In Oregon schools, Planned Parenthood is paying children cash incentives to participate.
PP is funded with our tax dollars to market sex to our children in our schools under the guise of sex education, anti-bullying, diversity, and tolerance. Once sexualized, those children then become PP sex customers for contraceptives, STD testing, and abortion.
It gets worse though. Look at what this curriculum teaches your children to do. It teaches openly engaging in sexual roleplay.

Obama's Proposals "Would Not Affect Second Amendment"?

RCP Video ^ | 3-29-2013

JOSH EARNEST, DEPUTY WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Well, the measures that the President has put forward would not affect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. That is a priority of the President’s as well.

The President believes in the Second Amendment, so none of the measures that he’s put forward would have any impact on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

Blind Cashier at Cabela's:

A woman goes into Cabela's to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get, so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. The clerk was standing behind the counter wearing dark glasses. She says to him, "Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this Rod and reel?" He says, "Ma'am, I'm completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything from the sound it makes."


She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway...... He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB. test line. It's a good all-around combination, and it's on sale this week for only $20.00."

She says, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!"

As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. "Oh, that sounds like a Master Card," he says.

She bends down to pick it up and accidentally farts. At first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes......there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was her who tooted. Being blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around?

The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please." The woman is totally confused by this and asks, "Didn't you tell me the rod and reel were on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?"

He replies, "Yes, ma'am. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00, and the Catfish Bait is $3.50."

She paid it and left without saying a word.
