NEWS: U.S. Invaded by State Owned Marxist/Muslim Energy Companies.

Chesapeake buys Your Mineral Rights. CHINA Owns Chesapeake?

They will own America without firing a shot.

How many acres of mineral rights leases did the

American government force farmers to sell

Chesapeake oil and gas?

CNOOC owns at least 33% of Chesapeake and Sinopec WANTS TO BUY MORE OF Chesapeake.

My mom’s farm has a Chesapeake pipe running under it.

She is getting a monthly check.  How can that be bad?  The Christian, my mom, is getting paid off by anti Christian Marxists.

If we did not have the 36th dumbest

populace in the world, we would be very

scared.

3   For China, It’s All About America

After a while, an undertone creeps into discussions with Chinese counterparts on regional and global issues.  Whether meeting with Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials, academics and policy analysts, or the media, an American soon begins to sense that part of the conversation is missing.  What’s absent is not boilerplate about values, opportunities, or common interests, but rather a sense of China’s broader set of relationships.  Ultimately, as one European diplomat put it to me, when it comes to China’s foreign policy, it’s all about the United States.  This monofocus on America tells us a great deal about China’s worldview, but it also reveals the degree to which Washington is hampered in forging a better working relationship with Beijing.

12    Another Month of Data Re-Confirms Obama’s Horrible Record on Jobs

CATO

Posted by Daniel J. Mitchell

Remember back in 2009, when President Obama and his team told us that we needed to spend $800 billion on a so-called stimulus package?

The crowd in Washington was quite confident that Keynesian spending was going to save the day, even though similar efforts had failed for Hoover and Roosevelt in the 1930s, for Japan in the 1990s, and for Bush in 2008.

Nonetheless, we were assured that the stimulus was needed to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

Well, that claim has turned out to be hollow. Not that we needed additional evidence, but the new numbers from the Labor Department re-confirm that the White House prediction was wildly inaccurate. The 8.2 percent unemployment rate is 2.5 percentage points above the administration’s prediction.

Defenders of the Obama administration sometimes respond by saying that the downturn was more serious than anyone predicted. That’s a legitimate point, so I don’t put too much blame on the White House for the initial spike in joblessness.

But I do blame them for the fact that the labor market has remained weak for such a long time. The chart below, which I generated this morning using the Minneapolis Fed’s interactive website, shows employment data for all the post-World War II recessions. The current business cycle is the red line. As you can see, some recessions were deeper in the beginning and some were milder. But the one thing that is unambiguous is that we’ve never had a jobs recovery as anemic as the one we’re experiencing now.

Job creation has been extraordinarily weak. Indeed, the current 8.2 percent unemployment rate understates the bad news because it doesn’t capture all the people who have given up and dropped out of the labor force.

By the way, I don’t think the so-called stimulus is the main cause of today’s poor employment data. Rather, the vast majority of that money was simply wasted.

Today’s weak job market is affected by factors such as the threat of higher taxes in 2013 (when the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts are scheduled to expire), the costly impact of Obamacare, and the harsh regulatory environment. This cartoon shows, in an amusing fashion, the effect these policies have on entrepreneurs and investors.

Postscript: Click on this link if you want to compare Obamanomics and Reaganomics. The difference is astounding.

Post-postscript: The president will probably continue to blame “headwinds” for the dismal job numbers, so this cartoon is definitely worth sharing.

Post-post-postscript: Since I’m sharing cartoons, I can’t resist recycling this classic about Keynesian stimulus.

14    Chávez’s Dangerous Liaisons with Tehran

By Roger F. Noriega Monday, July 2, 2012

U.S. diplomats have been silent on these growing alliances. However, fresh revelations about Chávez’s alliance with Iran demonstrate what he is capable of doing when he is not provoked.

Hugo Chávez admitted on June 13 that Venezuela is manufacturing Iranian drones and that Iran has built several explosives and chemical facilities in his country. However, Chávez is trying to throw international observers off his scent by acknowledging an unmanned aerial vehicle program for “peaceful purposes.” What  he did not disclose are the many other troubling aspects of the extensive military cooperation between the two rabidly anti-U.S. regimes—not the least of which is that Venezuela secretly shipped an F-16 to Iran in 2006 that could be used today to test the air defenses around Teheran’s illicit nuclear facilities.

Illegal immigrants in France can no longer be held in police custody simply for not having residency papers, the country’s highest court ruled on Thursday. Until now, police could detain “sans-papiers” [“without papers”, the French term for illegal aliens] even if they had not committed a crime. … National Front, meanwhile, was indignant. “This ruling is lax, ultraliberal, and pandering to the whims of a European legal oligarchy,”

  • Initiative would let voters overrule federal law

    Saturday, July 07, 2012 12:37:58 AM · by BigEdLB · 16 replies

    Arizona Daily Sun ^ | // | Howard Fischer
    PHOENIX — Voters could get the right to overrule federal laws and mandates under the terms of an initiative filed late Thursday. The Arizona Constitution already says the federal Constitution “is the supreme law of the land.” This measure, if approved in November, it would add language saying that federal document may not be violated by any government — including the federal government. More to the point, it would allow Arizonans “to reject any federal action that they determine violates the United States Constitution.” That could occur through a vote of the state House and Senate with consent of the…

 

  • Why Obama Will ‘Own’ the Recession (FLASHBACK: Written before Inauguration 1/1/09)

    Friday, July 06, 2012 11:20:16 PM · by Brandonmark · 4 replies

    US News ^ | January 7, 2009 | James Pethokoukis
    For eight decades, Democrats have successfully blamed Republican Herbert Hoover for the decade-long Great Depression. That, even though Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal failed to restore prosperity or dramatically lower unemployment, and his tax increases in 1937 snuffed out a nascent recovery. Now today’s Obamacrats are apparently going to try and Hooverize President Bush in an effort to shield themselves from the potential political fallout of a prolonged recession. It will take years to fix the American economy, Obama says, and years of trillion-dollar budget deficits to do it. And everyday it seems that Team Obama tries to lower economic expectations,…

    Yahoo! News ^ | July 6, 2012 | Chris Moody
    When the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced the nation’s latest national employment figures Friday, the Obama administration stressed that people should not “read too much” into the data. Mitt Romney’s campaign pounced, and flagged the fact that the White House has repeated that same line nearly every month since November 2009. See below for the roundup of articles from WhiteHouse.gov that Romney’s campaign posted on its site. In many of the posts, the authors for the administration do acknowledge that they repeat themselves: June 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and…

    By Mr. CurmudgeonHere we are, at the midpoint of 2012, and unemployment – thanks to stimulus spending (and borrowed Chinese money) – stands at 5.6%. No, wait a minute, it’s not! That was the rosy prediction by the smartest man on the planet back in 2009 – Barack Obama.Friday’s jobs report failed to move U.S. unemployment below its three-month 8.2% level. Of course, that Department of Labor Statistics’ figure (classified U-3) does not include Americans who have run through their unemployment benefits and still cannot find work. The more accurate U-6 figure puts real U.S joblessness at 14.8%.The smartest man…
