No bad news for the demcorats until after the election…

The sycophants in the media, in order to protect the democrats and this criminal administration in particular, are also holding off on a lot of information that would be detrimental to the collectivist powers that be. Picking a replacement for that criminal Eric Holder? Not until after the election. The Secret Service scandals? Not until after the election. The whole Ebola disaster that’s unwinding right now as the CDC crashes & burns and the powers that be pretend there is nothing wrong? Not until after the election. The fact that democrats want to give a pass to millions of illegal immigrants so they can drastically skew future elections in their favor as these people line up for their free shit? Not until after the elections. The list of things the DNC controlled media doesn’t want to talk about until after the election is long and distinguished.

And if they are not doing this delaying of bad news, they are outright faking data (unemployment numbers, economic numbers, government scandals) to fool people into thinking things are getting better than they are. If they deign to report, they provide cover. When they can, they bury the story. This despicable behavior is not news to those of us that pay close attention to the incestuous relationship between the DNC shills in the LSM passing themselves off as objective reporters and their masters in the democratic party, and par for the course. For example, bad Obamacare rate news is also being withheld from the public to prevent a negative impact to democrats, whom passed this disastrous and idiotic law on a party line vote, at the polls.

Here in the US, where the LSM thinks its job is to filter news to favor democrats and hurt republicans, we have not heard a peep about the US military investigation of the deserter the Obama administration traded Gitmo detained master terrorists for, but lucky for us the Berghdal story is covered by others outside the country. The unannounced fact, something that seems very common with anything that has detrimental impact for democrats in the coming election, is the military completed that investigation last week. But here in the US that never made the news cycle. Obviously even this compromised and PC-centric military leadership couldn’t sanitize the story enough to cover the obvious conclusion that Berghdal was nothing but a deserter and an enemy sympathizer, and that the Obama administration traded people very likely to attack the US again, to bring one of their own back.

The key to my speculation is the revelation in the MailOnline article pointing out that this information is unlikely to be reported until after the November election.

Low information voters and cheaters win the elections for the left. No wonder the left balks at any talk of actually providing some accountability and verification.


There must be an election soon

And it looks like, just as we saw in 2012, the crooks in government beholden to the crime syndicate in DC, are cooking the books again. The unemployment numbers, especially the decline we are being told has happened recently, are bullshit. Things are just as bad, if not worse, than when the social engineering scheme the collectivists straddled us with – the one that encouraged the lending industry to give money to unqualified people, and then through government agencies bundled the worthless loans and sold them at a premium to investors – collapsed our economy and housing market, and led to the election of the Chicago crime boss now running the country.

There are countless people that have been unemployed for more than 2 years, and those with 4 years or more, are at a record high. Lucky for the crooks in DC the unemployment numbers are unaffected by these people no longer on the dole. There is a reason the number of people on assistance of one kind or another is so high. We have a record number of people on Social Security disability pay, with a record number of applicants in the pipe. I have heard it said that the bulk of these people are those that have been unemployed for 2 or more years. Of course our media has no interest in investigating stories like this, because they are too busy feeding the sheep the bullshit lies the democratic party needs to sell so they can retain their hold on power and keep robbing tax payers blind while destroying the country’s future.

The fact of the matter is that our economy remains in turmoil, and that the left’s agenda is only doing more damage, but they desperately need to confuse the low information voter about this reality to keep their hold on power. The policies of the democratic party but especially those championed by president “I am going golfing or on vacation and the tax payer will pick up the tab” have been abysmal. Obamacare, all by itself, will wreak havoc on the country’s employment and employment opportunities, the ability to start and sustain economic growth, and will annihilate the healthcare system, and anyone pretending otherwise is just propagating the same lies the democrats used to get this horrible thing passed. Good things like this are happening despite the efforts of this administration and the leftards to prevent them. Can you imagine the economic boom if we had people that actually valued economic growth and individuality over vote buying collectivist schemes and scams?

Things are bad, and what the crooks trying desperately to keep their hold on power so the fleecing of the productive can continue, are doing nothing but causing damage and lying about the damage they are causing. Remember that when you vote next month.

I blame Boosh!

Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the role of picking winners & losers. Of course they can’t see the forest for the trees, even when the information stares them in the face.

Those who did find work had a difficult time with their job search and the effects of unemployment, the survey by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University found.

Nearly 40% said it took more than seven months to find employment and about one in five of laid-off workers said all they could find was a temporary position.

Almost half — 46% — of the estimated 30 million layoff victims who found new jobs said they paid less then their old ones, according to the survey of 1,153 U.S adults done over the summer.

“While job growth has been consistent, it has been insufficient to produce enough full-time jobs for everyone,” the study said.

Despite a declining overall unemployment rate, the study says, long-term joblessness has remained a major problem as the U.S. economy has slowly recovered from the deep recession, which technically ended in June 2009.

The study notes that 3 million Americans in August had been unemployed for more than six months. Although that figure has been declining, it still is high.

The effects of long-term unemployment can be traumatic, the survey found.

What a pile of bullshit. The economy has sucked, and continues to suck, despite the fucking LSM’s propaganda to the contrary, and it is directly tied to the burdensome government meddling in the private sector. Whatever good has happened comes despite the people in charge’s efforts that have tried to deny that growth (oil industry anyone?). Our system is one of crony capitalism: one where the powerful and connected buy favors and gain huge benefits from people in government that in turn profit and keep power from selling these favors. This system prevents real economic growth and indubitably destroys the middle class and opportunities for those in or trying to get into the middle class.

That’s why the number of jobless people, which should include people that no longer get counted because they are off the government unemployment benefit dole, is staggering, and the trend so ugly. Most of these new jobs the LA Times want to pretend are responsible for the faux growth the left has been peddling since black Jesus took power, have been low end service sector jobs too. And it is not just that have lost jobs that have suffered. The employed, unless they were in the public sector, have also been hammered. The reasons are blatant as well. Over regulation to serve the left’s various agendas and government power grabs masquerading as social improvement projects, things like Obamacare or the EPA’s assault on fossil fuels, all have drastic economic consequences.

If we had a republican in charge the LSM would be telling us that we were in a recession. Remember that whenever you see these fluff pieces that refuse to acknowledge that the bad times come from the left’s policies and practices.

Whiplash!

It is one thing to be the perennial opposition, criticizing your political betters at every point, whether based on real or made up grievances, and quite another to be the one that needs to deal with the shit, as Black Jesus is finding out:

The rising clamor over the beheading of two Americans, and rapidly sinking polls, forced President Obama to reassure the nation last week he had a plan to deal with the Islamic State. He did some of what he had to do, but only some, and so most military analysts believe the expanded airstrikes will not be a sufficient match for the size and weaponry of the terrorist army.

They miss the point. The disjointed speech wasn’t really about terrorism and launching a new war. It was about saving Obama’s presidency. He is sinking fast and could soon pass the point of no return. In fact, it may already be too late to save the SS Obama.

The whole second term has been a string of disasters, with the toxic brew of his ObamaCare lies, middling economic growth and violent global breakdown casting doubt on the president’s stewardship. Six years into his tenure, nothing is going as promised.

Earlier on, he could have trotted out his teleprompters and turned public opinion his way, or at least stopped the damage. But the magic of his rhetoric is long gone, and not just because the public has tuned him out.

They’ve tuned him out because they’ve made up their minds about him. They no longer trust him and don’t think he’s a good leader. Most ominously, they feel less safe now than they did when he took office. Americans know the war on terror isn’t over, no matter what their president claims.

Forget the irony of how many of the things senator and candidate opposed the previous administration on now are things he feels he is due. And also forget the fact this administration clearly feels it is above the law and can simply do what it wants through gangsterism. And definitely forget the bullshit speeches about how when he was in charge America would regain its political good will and the respect of the foreign community. The fact is that either this man and the people he has chosen to surround himself with are the most inept persons – ever – or the agenda is to destroy the United States.

It’s fucking amateur hour. At least Boosh when he enacted his policies didn’t act like a petulant child and only really had the chagrin from the leftards to contend with. Obama and his team of losers have managed to destroy America’s credibility, economy, and future. We are a powerless banana republic run by a tinpot dictator-wannabe, with delusions of grandeur and no substance to speak off. Saying that Obama’s ship is sinking is akin to saying the Titanic hit a bump on the road. Speaking of the Titanic, does anyone else get the impression that as the ship is sinking the people in charge are more interested in rearranging the deck furniture than to addressing the dilemma?

I wanted to joke about this just being the fourth term of the Boosh administration, and when you consider shit like this, one cannot be blamed for making that case, but that would mean you are lifting the Obama administration to an undeserved level through that comparison/analogy. And remember that Boosh sucked.

I would be laughing my ass off and telling the bunch of losers that couldn’t drop on their knees quick enough to kiss this moron’s ass how stupid they are and that I am vindicated since I pointed out any democrat elected would end up making Boosh look like a fucking genius, except that the country is literally being destroyed by the Obama people’s idiocy.

Obamacare not free, and kills jobs – rehash

Those of us that pointed out Obamacare was going to hit everyone, but especially small businesses, hard in the pocketbook, but then also kill jobs, should feel a measure of vindication now that the LSM has been forced to admit that the truth is Obamacare has killed a lot of small business jobs and sucked big money out of the economy, but there is no joy in this information making the light of day after the LSM shills helped the America haters pass this economy killer.

Obamacare is taking a toll on small businesses, according to a new analysis of the effects of the health-care reform law, which found billions of dollars in reduced pay and hundreds of thousands fewer jobs.

Take-home pay at small businesses was trimmed by some $22.6 billion annually because of the Affordable Care Act and related insurance premium hikes, researchers at the American Action Forum, a center-right think tank headed by former Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, found in a report released Tuesday.

Individual year-round employees at businesses with 50 to 99 workers lost $935 annually, while those at firms with 20 to 49 workers are out an average of $827.50 per person in take-home pay, the report found.

That report also says that there has been the loss of more than 350,000 jobs due to Obamacare-era premium hikes at small businesses.

You think? Free shit that ain’t free and the usual idiots figured they would demand the evil producers pay for ends up not only costing employees their home pay AND has resulted in reductions in job opportunities? I wonder if they only report on existing jobs that were killed, or if this number accounts for actual jobs that now will never materialize, as people that don’t like the idea that progressives can just rob them blind to buy votes under false pretenses, decide to not play along. My guess is this only accounts for real job losses. The LSM would hate to really have to report on how bad this boondoggle law is. I did find a silver lining though:

In five states, the losses have exceeded more than 20,000 jobs apiece, including Florida, New York, Ohio and Texas. California lost an estimated 42,788 jobs due to Obamacare, the report estimated.

It looks like with the exception of Florida, the states hit hardest, are all progressive bastions. There might be some justice in the universe still, I guess. But the pain has only just begun. While they are not addressing the issue of future small business job losses caused by Obamacare, they are talking about what’s happening, likely in an attempt to paint the small business owners in as negative as possible a light, by claiming that they are preemptively responding to this terrible law.

And those wage and job-level effects have come before the implementation of Obamacare’s employer mandate, which beginning in 2016 will compel firms with 50 to 99 full-time workers to offer them health coverage or pay a fine.

“We find evidence that the labor force is absorbing these detrimental costs even before the government has started enforcing the most stringent ACA regulations,” the report said. “These costs are likely a result of businesses preparing for the employer mandate, providing health insurance to workers and losing access to low-cost coverage.”

Bastages! How dare they do whatever it takes for Obamacare not to put them out of business? Don’t they know that their jobs is just to be the money bags for the progressives and their cockamamie schemes and scams? Profiteers! Healthcare is a right. More government meddling to force them to play along and swallow the poison pill! And all that other nonsense not being spoken, but implied. The evil scum are responding to their civic duty by working within the framework of this insane and costly law to ensure their ability to survive.

Batkins said the research detected a marked response at small businesses to insurance premium prices after the implementation of the ACA in 2010, in contrast to how those employers responded to price hikes before the law was adopted. Specifically, there was a correlation between small businesses’ cutting jobs and workers’ take-home pay being reduced when premiums went up after the ACA took effect, as opposed to before.

“While there was no significant relationship between health-care premiums and employment before the ACA, since 2010 small businesses have slowly started shedding jobs and reducing wages,” the report said.

That nonsense is code for they are also not creating any new jobs as well. Welcome to what everyone predicted about the impact of this behemoth on small businesses, which happen to form the backbone of the American economic engine. Of course, with progressives loving big and married to government, this is a feature to these types. Unfortunately for them though, the mega corps are not going to do much better. Business, those with over the 99 employee threshold, but especially the big conglomerates, usually unionized, that tend to contribute big to democrats in return for special favors, unless they were able to buy an exclusion, are also getting into the game. Many of these entities are looking at the soon to come employer mandates and will be quite happy to drop all insurance for their workforce.

“Obviously, these are huge numbers,” lead author Sam Batkins said about the findings.

And because of the employer mandate coming down the road, “we expect the trends to worsen,” Batkins added.

You think? Wait until employers dump people, en mass, and we all find out, yet again, that the progtards lied about being able to keep your plans, doctors, and decent and affordable coverage. VA quality care for everyone, with longer waits, and at higher prices! But they meant well! Maybe that’s why they are flooding the country with illegals while denying people that are legally applying entry in the country too. They mean well. Let’s look at some numbers:

In all, the $22.6 billion in reduced take-home pay equals 6 percent of all wages in the small-business category.

The 350,000 estimated jobs the report said have been lost in small businesses because of Obamacare came entirely from employers with just 20 to 49 workers.

Again. That’s a big chunk of change, and the numbers that lost employment, while scary and not trivial, pales compared to the fact that new jobs are impacted even worse by this crap law. In the meantime, government employees that are exempt from Obamacare are seeing big raises. There is a reason that Obama decided to push the employer mandate (not to be confused with 2 guys going on a date) past the coming election cycle. These scumbags know it will be devastating, but don’t much care other than it can impact their reelection chances so they can keep their hold on power. Awesome stuff.

Asked if the overall costs to small business employment and wages are warranted by Obamacare’s goal of providing affordable health insurance to millions of uninsured people, and of improving the quality of insurance offered to enrollees, Batkins said, “I think the jury is still out.”

“This report has shown that the costs are fairly high,” Batkins said. “And the enrollment is going to have to be fairly high, as well, to cover the costs.”

Yeah sure, the jury is only out if you can’t admit that this was a horrible and economically crippling idea, because you are riding the “I want to buy your vote with the false promise of free shit” bandwagon. There is no fixing this monstrosity. It needs to be repealed. Killed dead. Then we can go about actually pushing for the things that fix the system and reduce costs instead of helping democrats destroy it so they can push for a single payer system that will finally allow them to use healthcare as yet another cudgel to beat those that will not bow to the all mighty nanny-state into compliance.
