698,000 Native-Born Americans Lost Their Job In August

698K Native-Born Americans Lost Their Job In August: Why This Suddenly Is The Most Important Jobs Chart

After the Fed admitted over a year ago that the US unemployment rate (which in 2012 was supposed to be a rate hike “threshold” once it hit 6.5% and is now at 5.1%) has become irrelevant in a country where a record 94 million people have left the labor force, and with the Fed poised to hike rates even though US hourly wages have not only not increased for the past 7 years, but for the vast majority of the labor force continue to decline, some have asked – is there any labor-related chart that matters any more?

The answer: a resounding yes, only it is none of the conventional charts that algos and sometimes humans look at.

The one chart that matters more than ever,has little to nothing to do with the Fed’s monetary policy, but everything to do with the November 2016 presidential elections in which the topic of immigration, both legal and illegal, is shaping up to be the most rancorous, contentious and divisive.

The chart is the following, showing the cumulative addition of foreign-born and native-born workers added to US payrolls according to the BLS since December 2007, i.e., since the start of the recession/Second Great Depression.

The chart is especially important because what it shows for just the month of August will be enough to provide the Trump – and every other – campaign with enough soundbites and pivot points to last it for weeks on end: namely, that in August a whopping 698,000 native-born Americans lost their job. This drop was offset by 204,000 foreign-born Americans, who got a job in the month of August.

But the punchline: since December 2007, according to the Household Survey, only 790,000 native born American jobs have been added. Contrast that with the 2.1 million foreign-born Americans who have found a job over the same time period…

… and you have a combustible mess that will lead to serious fireworks during the next GOP primary.

Did you know that Obama gave illegal immigrants a civil right that you do not have?

President Obama Signs Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act

Did you know that Obama granted illegal immigrants a civil right that you do not have? 

I continually deal with the miracle of changed lives.  When gang members and drug addicts come to Christ, God forgives them, the church forgives them but the government does not.  They still have to pay for their past whenever they apply for a job, seek a student loan.

This is because of a question that is on every application.  As an adult, you must disclose that you have a criminal record.  That record follows you through life.

This affects me on a very deep level.  I know an outstanding young man, who has all of the gifts, discipline, and love for God that will make him a great leader.  He is a model father and husband.

To make matters even more dramatic, he is Latino, born in the United States to parents who went through proper channels.

But like so many who lived in poverty ravaged neighborhoods, he ended up in trouble with the law and now,  many years after he radically repented, he is cheerfully paying off a debt.   His crime record stands.

It is sad but true that criminal records need to stand in order to protect society.  For every good citizen who has truly repented there are dozens who will commit crimes again.

However, when Obama granted amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants he gave them the right not to have to report their crime, a Federal Felony, that they committed by entering the United States illegally.   This felony will not appear on any application for work or education.  They will not have a criminal record for a crime they committed.

At some point, because a natural born American has to keep his crime record, they may be turned down for a job or a loan where an illegal immigrant may not be turned down.  Simply stated, they now have an extra civil right.

We already see this preferential treatment in Obamacare where companies will get a $3,000 rebate for hiring illegals instead of American citizens.

While we are at it, it is insulting to your intelligence when amnesty advocates say “they came here to be good citizens and to escape extreme violence and poverty” .  They committed a crime to get in here and now they are magically never going to commit another crime?

If you, God forbid were unable to leave a violent neighborhood, could you be a squatter in a nicer neighborhood?  Could starving homeless Americans loot a supermarket for food and get away with it?

Oops, the answer to the second is yes, if you are part of a demonstration against racism.

How can we possibly believe that this is some grand benevolent gesture to give people jobs and a future when, Obama has already proven he is a spectacular failure at obtaining those things for Americans?

The unambiguous purpose of amnesty is to allow the Democratic Party to hold on to power.  That is why so many refer to illegals as undocumented democrats.

A new civil right, one you do not have, has been granted to those who came here in violation of our law.  You should be boiling mad, infuriated and fit to be tied…at both parties.

Drug Smuggler Sues United States because of Border Patrol Dog bite

DRUG SMUGGLER SUES OVER MEAN DRUG DOG

Drug Smuggler Sues Over Mean Drug Dog
Inform

A convicted drug smuggler is now suing the US government because, during his arrest, he alleges injuries were caused by a border patrol agent’s drug-sniffing dog.

Jose Manuel Marino-Najera was arrested in 2013 after the US Border Patrol apprehended him when he was found in possession of a 50-pound load of marijuana. He was convicted and served 180 days in prison for the crime.

But now, Marino-Najera is suing the federal government because a police dog bit him in the arm during his arrest.

According to his lawyer, the muscles in Marino-Najera’s arm were “severely damaged” by the dog.

Attorney William Risner alleges that the officers allowed the dog to go wild and didn’t curb him. “These guys, they let him chew on his arm, and he’s permanently crippled,” the lawyer said.

Marino-Najera, a native of Mexico, said that he can no longer ply his trade as a mason due to the injuries.

The arrest occurred in Arizona near the Tohono O’odham reservation close to the border with Mexico.

While the complaint Marino-Najera filed makes no mention of a K-9 unit, he alleges he was asleep under a tree when police found him. He alleges it was then the dog attacked him.

Americans do not trust Obama: The World is on Fire

WASHINGTON, DC – At a press briefing with Republican leaders today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) took President Obama to task for his recent unilateral action on immigration, saying the president’s overreach has made “it harder for the American people and their elected representatives to trust his word on any issue.”  Following are Boehner’s remarks:

“The American people want both parties to focus on solutions to our still-struggling economy.  This week we’ll pass important legislation to help families with special needs and to prevent tax hikes on millions of families and small businesses.

“The president, on the other hand, has ignored the will of the American people and he’s refused to listen. … His decision to take unilateral action on immigration – action he himself said exceeded his authority – makes it harder for the American people and their elected representatives to trust his word on any issue.

“I said before Thanksgiving that Republicans would fight his unilateral actions.  We’re looking at a variety of options, both for right now and when Republicans control both Houses of the Congress next year.  And we’ll continue to discuss with our members a number of options, in terms of how we will deal with this, in consultation, again, with the members – but no decisions have been made at this point.”

TED CRUZ: ‘The World Is On Fire’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attacked what he described as “the Obama-Clinton foreign policy” in a wide-ranging speech on Tuesday.

“It’s almost as if the whole world is on fire right now,” Cruz said at a Washington event hosted by Concerned Veterans for America. “Leading from behind doesn’t work.”

As an alternative, Cruz presented his own three-part plan for “reasserting American leadership in the world.” The first step, Cruz said, was making sure the US government again becomes a voice for freedom.

“We should be a clarion voice for freedom. Never underestimate the power of the bully pulpit of America,” Cruz said, citing former President Ronald Reagan’s speech urging the Soviet Union to tear down the Berlin Wall. “One of the most striking and inexplicable aspects of the last six years is the almost complete absence of American leadership speaking out for freedom.”

The second step of the Cruz foreign policy plan is presenting a clear vision for the deployment of US military force. Cruz accused Obama and Hillary Clinton — the president’s former secretary of state and likely Democratic front-runner in 2016 — of being focused on press releases, photo-ops, and “international norms” rather than national security.

“The second critical element is resolutely defending US national security. The singular failure of the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has been a failure to focus on the vital national security interests of the United States,” Cruz said. “If and when we have to [use force], it should be with a clear, stated objective up front. We should go in with overwhelming force and then we should get the heck out. It is not the job of our military to produce democratic utopias across the world.”

 Throughout the speech, Cruz took Obama to task for having a lackluster approach to a whole host of issues including; nuclear negotiations with Iran, the showdown with Russia over Ukraine, the military operations against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS), and backing democratic activists in despotic regimes.

For this third point, Cruz also critiqued Obama’s handling of his own administration. Cruz noted Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel just announced his resignation — the third such departure of Obama’s last six years in office.

“What a failure of leadership at a time when the world is on fire,” said Cruz. “It seems what the administration is looking for is a defense secretary who will follow the orders of a political White House.”

The administration’s failures, Cruz said, were starting to become comical.

“You literally cannot make this stuff up. If ‘Saturday Night Live’ were parodying a hapless, ineffective president, they couldn’t make up things up worse. Look, just a few months ago, Jimmy Carter criticized this president for being weak on foreign policy! Holy cow!” he exclaimed to laughs.

 

We must stop Emperor Obama

Sen. Sessions reacts: We must stop Emperor Obama

Congress must fix the problems President Obama’s executive amnesty plan creates.

Americans defeated President Obama’s disastrous amnesty plans both in Congress and at the voting booth. Tonight, President Obama defied an entire nation and declared that he will impose his rejected amnesty through the brute force of executive order.

President Obama’s executive amnesty will provide an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress rejected, in violation of federal law. His order will grant them social security numbers, government-issued ID’s, legal status and work permits. Illegal immigrants will now be able to take jobs and benefits directly from struggling Americans in a time of high unemployment and low wages. They will be able to take jobs from Americans in all occupations, ranging from truck drivers to power company workers to jobs with city government. Many illegal immigrants will also be able to obtain green cards and become permanent residents, allowing them access to almost all federal programs, to receive citizenship and sponsor foreign relatives to join them in the U.S.

In addition to providing formal amnesty benefits for 5 million illegal immigrants, President Obama has also eliminated virtually all enforcement with respect to the other nearly 7 million illegal immigrantsin the United States. As the president’s own former ICE Director, John Sandweg said: “if you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”

All you have to do is get into the country from anywhere on globe — whether through the border or by overstaying a visa — and you are free to remain, take jobs and receive benefits. This year alone, the White House has released into the United States more than 100,000 illegal immigrants who simply showed up at the border and demanded entry.

And now, with a single pen stroke, President Obama is obliterating what little remains of Americans’ immigration protections. Not only will millions of low-wage illegal immigrants rush into the labor market, but they will collect billions in taxpayer dollars as well. These costly government benefits range from child tax credits, to public housing to the likelihood that amnestied immigrants will rely on taxpayers for medical and retirement benefits.

Only a short time ago, President Obama himself admitted this action would be illegal and unconstitutional: “I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own” he explained, adding “that’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.” President Obama also said that: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

Apparently, America now has its first emperor.

And he has issued an imperial order to dissolve America’s borders. Millions more will enter and demand the same amnesty benefits as those who came before. The entire moral foundation and consistency of our laws will have been eviscerated. Law enforcement officials have repeatedly warned that the president’s new amnesty will unleash a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration. The impact on our jobs, wages, hospitals, schools, police departments and neighborhoods will be crushing.

A second hammer blow will be dealt by the president’s unilateral increase in foreignworker programs for large corporations, including technology corporations. Currently,two-thirds of all new jobs in the IT industry are being filled by foreign workers — and yet the president wants to dramatically surge foreign worker admissions even further. This at a time when the Census Bureau tells us more than 11 million Americanswith science, technology, engineering and math degrees don’t have jobs in those fields.

President Obama is auctioning off America’s middle class to the highest bidders.

Immigration already stands at record levels and is rising quickly. Between 2000 and 2014 — a period during which the government issued nearly 30 million lawful visas to foreign workers and permanent immigrants — all net employment gains among the working-age went to imported labor. Now the president is planning to unilaterally increase immigration even further — all to placate a few billionaire lobbyists and open border extremists.

The great task before the nation now is to resist this imperial decree and return control of this nation to its own citizens — as our Constitution established.

That task begins with Congress refusing to allow a dime of money to be spent executing this unlawful amnesty. This a routine, constitutional and crucial application of congressional power.

If Democrat lawmakers join Republicans in blocking funds for his unlawful plan, the president will be stopped. Americans must ask their representatives this one question: do you serve the citizens of this country and their Constitution — or not?

Obama is doing it out of revenge

“To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee; For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.”   -Captain Ahab in Moby Dick

 

Obama is doing it out of revenge.

By Mario Murillo

Listen to me America.   You must wake up!  What is a man of God if he does not warn when the Lord tells him to speak out?  tonight is the eve of a great misery.  I hate to bear evil tidings but everything within me tells me I must warn you.  Obama is obsessed with hurting us in that way that Captain Ahab was obsessed with killing the whale Moby Dick.

He knows it will bitterly divide the nation.  He knows that it will destroy an already fragile economy. He knows it will take jobs away from black people.  He knows it will overwhelm all social agencies.  He knows it will increase crime.   In short, he knows that there are few things he could ever do that would hurt the nation he swore to protect as much as what he is about to do…but he will do it anyway and make no mistake, he is doing it to hurt you and those you love.

Obama is about to bring upon us the most preventable disaster in our history.  He is not doing it for humanitarian reasons.  He is doing it completely out of spite and revenge.

adult-illegal-immigrants

He is vicious, full of rage and will take his revenge.  He will eviscerate the Constitution.  He will do whatever he can to hurt us now that we rejected him.  The midterm elections enraged him because the opposition voted against his policies and his own base, disillusioned with him, stayed home.  It was the final humiliation for an utterly narcissistic president.

So with one sweep of his pen he will take his revenge on you and your children.  He will create an illegal law to legalize 5 million illegal immigrants.  He will tell the world to just sneak in here and take our dwindling resources. He will take the money of hard working Americans and give it to 5 million people who are illegally here.

jmOneNationUnderSocialism 001

He is bringing upon you and your children the most preventable disaster in our history.  He is not doing this for humanitarian reasons.  He has proven that he does not care about illegal immigrants.  From 2008 till 2010 Democrats had control of the House, the Senate and the White House and did nothing.  They could have passed comprehensive immigration reform but they did not, he did not.

He can wait but he won’t.  He is only interested in illegal immigrants now because they can hurt those he hates.

He can give the new Congress a chance but he won’t. To the last he will rage against us, to the bitter end he will show malice and depraved indifference.

Wake up my friend!  It is time for the entire church to become one voice of righteousness in America.  Time is up, what we do we must do right now.

To remain a free nation we must deal with Benghazi

infamy copy

 

His handling of ISOL, Ebola, and our southern border all show a man unwilling to protect Americans.  It all stemmed from Benghazi.  Here he first crossed the line to permit Americans to die so he could be reelected.

Obama gave a graduation speech in which he told students that the idea that their government would be guilty of tyranny was absurd and that they had no reason to fear their government.   Now, he has given all us of the proof that we need that he acted with tyranny in sacrificing 4 Americans in Benghazi in order to protect his reelection.  The first question you must ask yourself is this…”what else is he willing to do to protect his power?”

He has vilified gun rights as we know them and has now become a poster child for why we need the Second Amendment.  He has shown us that in all prudence we must use our remaining rights to protect ourselves from him.

Jay Carney said that “Benghazi was a long time ago.”  Imagine how that sounded to the four families who lost loved ones in that embassy inferno?   He said that an independent council had reviewed the events in Benghazi and given them a clean bill of health.  The problem is they never spoke to the ranking diplomat in Benghazi who was most aware of all of the events.

Where was Obama during those eight hours of attack?  Why were rescuers told to stand down?  How could they blame the attack on an anti-Muslim video for two weeks after they had proof it had nothing to do with the terrorist attack?  How could they threaten and excoriate those brave leaders who tried to talk to congress?

Hillary Clinton is equally guilty of lying and covering up the truth.  She is not fit to lead this nation and has given us fair warning that her presidency would be more of the same cronyism, duplicity, arrogance and incompetence of the current administration.   

AIR FORCE GENERAL CRITICIZES LACK OF MILITARY RESPONSE TO BENGHAZI ATTACK

Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell testified today that the military should have done more to try to help the Americans who were under attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. At the time of the attack, Lovell was the deputy director for intelligence at Africa Command.

Lovell told the House Oversight Committee:

Many with firsthand knowledge have recounted the heroism displayed by the brave Americans in Benghazi that night. They fought the way they trained. That is in the record.

Outside of Libya there were discussions that churned on about what we should do. These elements also fought the way they were trained. Specifically, the predisposition to interagency influence had the military structure—in the spirit of expeditionary government support—waiting for a request for assistance from the State Department.

There are accounts of time, space and capability discussions of the question, could we have gotten there in time to make a difference. Well, the discussion is not in the “could or could not” in relation to time, space and capability—the point is we should have tried. As another saying goes: “Always move to the sound of the guns.”

It is with a sense of duty as a retired General officer that I respectfully submit these thoughts and perspectives.

There seems, then, to be no getting around the fact that Hillary Clinton and/or President Obama failed to respond properly to a deadly attack in which four Americans were killed. Either they were grossly incompetent or criminally cynical. In the interest of accountability, we should find out which was the case.

Your blood should be boiling over Benghazi.  If it is not, then you are probably the victim of the other heinous villain of Benghazi: The American Media.  Their breathtaking betrayal will also live in infamy.  How can the Washington Press Corps live with their cowardice and compromise?

Benghazi Massacre Blog copy

How is it possible for them to lay claim to the noble profession that tediously and relentlessly tracked down the crimes of Watergate when they are acting like belching lap dogs for Obama.  They refuse to face facts; they refuse to ask the hard questions.  They will do whatever they have to do to insulate a man that has shown nothing but contempt for them!

What makes you want to pull your hair out is that we do not know why.  Why Obama is allowed a pass for these crimes?  Now is the time for a groundswell of outrage from the general public!

You and I can no longer say that we did not know what this president did with our rights.  We cannot say Obama kept it from us. Benghazi is our national litmus test to see if we deserve to remain a free nation.  If we fail to find the rage, the love of liberty and the clear sense of how wrong Benghazi is, then we declaring ourselves unworthy of freedom.

I am first and last a man of Faith who believes in a loving God who is all powerful.  It is in this faith that I make this declaration: God has His vessels out there and it is time for them to roar.
