Where are the jobs?

Less than a day after the Comey hearing proved to be a big disappointment to Trump Hating Democrats, their fearless and often delusional Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), held a press conference on Capitol Hill demanding to know, “Where are the jobs? The election was about jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. He promised jobs. What has he done?”

Ms. Pelosi, I had that same question throughout President Obama’s alleged “economic recovery.”  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the last time the percentage of Americans with jobs was above 60% was in January and February of 2009, during Obama’s first six weeks in office.

This metric hit 60% again in February 2017, during Trump’s first six weeks in office.

Nikki Haley on Climate Agreement

Climate 5 years

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., on Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“We’ve always been a leader when it comes to the environment,” Haley said. “We don’t need India, and France, and China telling us what they think we should do.”

Against Security Advice

“The big anti-corruption news isn’t Comey’s testimony. It’s this new email Judicial Watch uncovered from #HillaryClinton confirming that, as she says, ‘Against the advice from security hawks, I still carry my Blackberry.’

Remember, #JamesComey said that Mrs. Clinton shouldn’t be prosecuted because she didn’t have the intent. This email blows that out of the water and shows why Mrs. Clinton should be held accountable to the full extent of the law.”

Good point in the comments: “There is nothing in any laws that allows intent as a defense. Besides this would be an issue for the judge and jury not the investigative police.”

If you are kind enough to click on the link below to vote, please don’t forget Bluebird of Bitterness. She really deserves it since she is raising her grandcats. (You can vote for as many as you like in one visit, but you won’t be allowed a second visit, so look at the whole list carefully before voting.)

Poll Is Now Open: Begin Voting For The Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award

The number of small conservative blogs nominated since the inaugural award presentation in 2013 has tripled. We here at Political Clown Parade are indebted to everyone who took the time to submit the names of blogs who are the modern-day offspring of the American Revolution’s pamphleteers—the brave and resolute men and women who feed our soul, who make us laugh about ourselves or life and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world.

Below you will find our poll. You may cast your vote for multiple blogs but you will only be allowed to vote once. We run a square house here. Make sure you vote for all the blogs you consider your favorites.

Voting will close at 11:30 PM ET on Saturday, June 17. The winners will be announced on Sunday, June 18.

The winners will be presented with a personalized award in the form of a badge which can be displayed on their website if they so choose.
