Bush haters tweet their uglies … again

After retiring, George W. Bush took up painting. He’s got an exhibit going on now in Dallas which gave the “Bushitler” haters another opportunity to recycle their tired, predictable but never-ending comparison between Dubya and Adolf. Among the pathetic examples:

  • I’ll say this for George W. Bush: In the category of War Criminal Artists, he’s at least as good a painter as Hitler.
  • Weird. Hitler painted before he was a mass murderer and Bush after he was a mass murderer.
  • George W. Bush has now become a shitty painter. This is like reading Hitler’s biography in reverse.
  • Hitler had a cuddly painter side, too.

Yes, Virginia. Journalism in America really is dead.

Catherine Anaya of KPHO-TV in Phoenix has come out on record to state Jay Carney admitted to her he receives press questions BEFORE the daily White House briefings.  Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, is already pushing a denial out there, but there is no reason for a local news reporter to make this up. White House press events are nothing more than orchestrated love fests.

Whether or not every media outlet is involved in the scandal is not yet known, and likely never will be, but Anaya’s claims confirm what so many of us have long thought. I.e., the Lamestream Media has been lap-dogging, not watch-dogging this administration.

Let me be clear

Liberals did not treat Bush this way

That’s true. They treated him way worse.

The Bad Guys Come In

Fallujah without al Qaeda

Charles Krauthammer on “The O’Reilly Factor”

“[President Obama] said he ended the Iraq war. No. It was [General] David Petraeus who ended the Iraq war, and we won. The civil war was over. Al Qaeda was utterly defeated and indeed humiliated…

“We were in a position to conclude a strategic agreement where Iraq would have been our ally. [President Obama] had three years to do that and he failed…

“The fact is we’ve given Iraqi air space over to Iran. We’ve given essentially the running of Iraq over to Iran, because when we leave a place and we create a vacuum the bad guys come in.”

By wasting the sacrifices our troops made in Iraq, Obama has betrayed us in the worst possible way.

I didn’t agree to give her that

2014_01 06 We're paying for Mooch's stay

I wouldn’t care so much, if I didn’t recall so clearly what a huge hairy deal the Left made of it every time Dubya played golf or went to his ranch … esp since going to his ranch was not that expensive, since it belonged to him and was outfitted ONCE with what a POTUS needed while away from the Oval Office. BHO’s golf and five-star resort vacays are unbelievably exorbitant compared to Dubya’s, but the fawning Left just talks breathlessly about how great it all is.

Obama issues two more Royal Decrees

Friday, January 3, 2014: The Obama Administration announced more Executive Orders to further restrict who has a right to privacy and who can own a gun.

Under the guise of protecting us from crazy people, Obamacrats are going to data mine health insurance records to identify people they can ban from gun ownership because of alleged mental health issues.

The Soviets and the Nazis used that mental health thing to justify imprisoning, torturing and killing political dissidents without trial. Remember when we had a government for the people, by the people? Good times.

“Friday news dump” announcements have traditionally been used to try to avoid media scrutiny. Not that the media will scrutinize anything remotely like this. Just the opposite. The LeftStreamMedia is all about Squirrel Journalism.

  • Oh look, George Bush! BLOOD FOR OIL! CINDY SHEEHAN!
  • Oh look, George Zimmerman! RAAAAACISTS WITH GUNS!
  • Oh look, Phil Robertson! CHRISTIANS WITH BIBLES!

Media guide to protesters

Think back on the Big Stories of the past 6 or 7 years. What do they have in common?

  1. They all promote wrath toward the people who hold dear the traditional values upon which our once-great nation was founded.
  2. They all distract from the loss of our freedoms, the destruction of our economy, the weakening of our military and the disarming, demoralizing, and deChristianizing of our citizens.

Submit or die

Personally, I am convinced the Leftocrats are doing all this so we will be too weak to step in as global playground monitor when they make their bid to take over the world.

The Unemployment Rate Bait-and-Switch

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has been calculating the Unemployment Rate every month since January 1948. During Bill Clinton’s first year in office, his administration cooked up a new category called Discouraged Workers (jobless American who want work, but have stopped looking because the job market is so bad). Since January 1994, the BLS has been EXCLUDING these jobless workers from the official Unemployment Rate.

BLS Compl Hist Unemployment Rate 1948 to 2013

Common sense would dictate that Discouraged Workers be tracked as a subset of the Unemployed, not excluded like they were somehow not unemployed anymore. But since when do Democrats ever use common sense? Clinton’s statistical chicanery has had a really screwy side-effect that Democrats exploit to their political benefit:

  • When the economy is BAD, more people become discouraged enough to quit looking so the BLS moves them from Unemployed to Discouraged. Net result: The Unemployment Rate goes DOWN.
  • When the economy IMPROVES, more people become encouraged enough to start looking for work again so the BLS moves them from Discouraged to Unemployed. Net result: The Unemployment Rate goes UP.

This allows the Lamestream Media to spin the monthly jobless reports in a way that most benefits Democrats. Since it’s been Obama in the Oval Office during our latest period of historically bad joblessness, the MSM trumpets each “improved” Unemployment Rate report as yet another sign of Teh Won’s wonderfulness.

And if you happen to mention that Obama is the first president to create more than a MILLION jobless workers too depressed to get off the couch, then you’re a dirty RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST TEA BAGGER

BLS Compl Hist Discouraged Wkrs 1994 - 2013

If the economy were to improve under Obama (not holding my breath), the Unemployment Rate would rise, at which point the talking heads would carefully explain to us at great length and with lots of experts and charts that it was because Discouraged Workers were now re-entering the job market, so woohoo Obama!

BLS: Unemployment Rate @ http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000.

The official (but faux) “total unemployment” rate used for media and political sound bytes and headlines. This statistic is reported as a percent of the employable population, which includes civilian, non-institutionalized Americans ages 16 and over, so basically not soldiers, jailbirds or children. The total employable population number changes.

BLS: Discouraged Workers @ http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNU05026645.

This statistic is reported as an actual number of individuals, not as a percent of employable population, making it very difficult to correlate with the Unemployment Rate.

NOTE: These time series pages are easy to use, but really hard to find at the BLS website. If you want to access them again, bookmark them. 

H/t itooktheredpill for my bookmarks!

P.S., If it makes you angry that the tax-funded Bureau of Labor Statistics has been corrupted by Democrats, join the club.
