NC unemployment initial claims up 1923, Fifth highest in nation, US initial claims 388000, 4 week moving average up 6250, Obama stimulus in action

“Guilford (Large NC County) appears on it’s way to a third consecutive year with annual jobless rates in double digits. Economists say that likely hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.”…Greensboro News Record December 2, 2011

“New, more-accurate estimates show North Carolina’s unemployment rate stayed above 10 percent throughout 2011, falling to 10.2 percent in January in a key election battleground state, the state Commerce Department reported today.”…Greensboro News Record March 14, 2012

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Unemployment initial claims were up by 1, 923 last week in NC, the fifth highest in the nation. The Obama stimulus plan reminds me of the old adage. Obama’s cronies got the gold ore and we got the shaft.

From the US Labor Department April 26, 2012.

“UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE WEEKLY CLAIMS REPORT
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED DATA

In the week ending April 21, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 388,000, a decrease of 1,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 389,000. The 4-week moving average was 381,750, an increase of 6,250 from the previous week’s revised average of 375,500.”

“The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending April 14 were in New York (+3,352), California (+3,060), Georgia (+2,179), Florida (+2,048), and North Carolina (+1,923)”

In the prior article at Citizen Wells it was pointed out that Obama inherited high unemployment not from George Bush, but from a Democrat controlled congress beginning in January of 2007. The same scenario has impacted NC, only more devastatingly.

NC unemployment from Jan. 2007 to Jan. 2012.

    This is why Ron Paul has to run on a third party ticket. He would get enough of the young votes that would have gone to Obama so that NO ONE gets the 270 electoral college votes and then the Republican Congress elects the next President.

    “GOP IN FIGHT OVER ROCK PASTOR’S MESSAGE” “STUDENT GROUP DEFIES PARTY ADMONITION, HOSTS ‘PRO-LIFE, ‘PRO-CONSTITUTION’ SPEAKER”

    Bob Unruh
    April 24, 2012

    Excerpt:

    “Politicians were enraged by the prayer from Dean, head of the You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International ministry.

    “I know this is a non-denominational prayer in this chamber,” Dean prayed, in part. “And it’s not about the Baptists, and it’s not about the Catholics alone, or the Lutherans, or the Wesleyans, or the Presbyterians, the evangelicals or any other denomination but rather the head of the denomination, and his name is Jesus. As every president up until 2008 has acknowledged. And we pray it in Jesus’ name. ”

    The lawmakers responded by publicly condemning Dean’s faith and re-starting the legislative session so his words would not be in the state record.

    Dean also recently was attacked in a dispute that has led to a court case against MSNBC and talk show host Rachel Maddow. She recently asked that the lawsuit by Dean be dismissed. But Dean’s attorney, Larry Klayman, asserted, “Maddow and MSNBC clearly defamed my client. Maddow went way over the line, particularly in her second broadcast by claiming that Dean and Republicans like then-presidential candidate Michele Bachmann are ‘bloodthirsty’ and want to see more gays and lesbians killed. This was outrageous and harmful and for this, Maddow and MSNBC will be held legally accountable.”

    The most recent controversy involves the College Republicans of St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minn. The students had invited Dean to speak on campus and were warned, according to a radio station report, by state party officials that their names forever would be linked to the event and their careers would be endangered.

    The event, nevertheless, was held Tuesday night on schedule, without a sign of any state party official in attendance, according to campus group spokeswoman Liz Isle. She said said the event went very well, with protesters raising their objections to Dean’s campus presence peacefully. A number of them remained to listen to his message.”

    [...]

    “Isle said Dean’s message, like other presentations he’s given in schools, is that God “is not OK with sin,” whether it is homosexuality or another form of behavior condemned by the Bible.

    She said Dean clearly is pro-life, pro-Constitution, pro-freedom and pro-conservative.”

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/bachmann-cals-rumors-of-war-iii-documenatry-frighteningly-accurate-absolutely-profound/

    Congresswoman Michele Bachmann joined Glenn Beck on Thursday to share her impressions of GBTV’s groundbreaking documentary, “Rumors of War III,” which exposes how the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the upper echelons of America’s government. Bachmann, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, confirmed that “every single word was accurate” and “absolutely profound.”

    “It was spellbinding.”

  21. The thing that makes me scream at the screen when I hear Beck or Bachman or Issa scream about all they know about Obama’s regime-like now the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest powers of the gov. and yet refuse to give an opening for hearings on the evidence of probable cause of crimes from Sheriff Arpaio. Good grief, they can whine all they want but why don’t they simply use the evidence re: the selective service fraud to show the guy ineligible to hold any office????? It’s the elephant in the room that no “brave” commentator or congress person will notice….on purpose.

    “JUDGE WANTS DEFINITION OF ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’”

    ‘RESOLUTION OF THIS FEDERAL ISSUE WILL RESOLVE THE CASE’

    By Bob Unruh

    Published 04/25/2012 at 9:35 pm

    Excerpt:

    “A federal judge has determined in a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility for a state ballot that the meaning of the constitutional phrase “natural born citizen” is “important and not trivial.”

    U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Tennessee said the courts ultimately must define “natural born citizen,” affirming that the “issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency is certainly substantial.”

    [...]

    “[Irion] told WND that the issue identified by Anderson is what virtually all of the dozens of cases challenging Obama’s eligibility have been seeking: a ruling on accusations that [Mr.] Obama is unqualified.”

    [...]

    “But Irion was heartened by the comments from the judge, who said that without a determination on the questions facing the court, there easily could be differing results in court jurisdictions around the nation.

    “There is a risk of inconsistent adjudications on the federal issue presented,” the judge said.

    Irion also had raised questions about “Obama’s dual citizenship” and allegations that his Social Security number is fraudulent.

    “The court construes these allegations about President Obama … as corroboration of plaintiffs’ main allegation that President Obama is not a natural born citizen or otherwise qualified to be president,” the judge wrote.

    Anderson’s opinion included a notation that the U.S. Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett defined “natural born citizen” as ‘all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens.’”

  24. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Buddy Roemer on MSNBC now telling about forming a third party system.

  25. citizenwells

    Good morning Zach, et al.

  26. At some point the federal courts are going to have to define the phrase natural born citizen. It’s like the media and their credibility. MSNBC is trashing their credibility because of their roles as cheerleader/attack dog for Obama; and it seems clear that a large majority of voters easily see through their games. The Courts by their blatant avoidance of the issue of Obama’s eligibility are risking what gives the justice system its underlying authority – confidence of the governed.

    And Obama continues to put the ‘court’ in the same position as MSNBC – cheerleader/attack dog. I can’t tell you, as an attorney, how disappointed that makes me.

    The politics swirling around being the ONE, the first black President, the first anything, is/has been very damaging the justice system and federal agencies’ autonomy and independence from such matters. Legitimate concerns appear to have been self censured by courts and elected representatives of both Parties out of concern their questions might be misconstrued as being even remotely related to race. (Politico – Today, just one in three has a favorable view of the federal government — the lowest level in 15 years, according to a Pew survey.) Thank God Obama has a record now. The issues of freedom, liberty, justice and the Constitution are much too important to go ignored (or less than fully defended) because politicians are busy tiptoeing on eggshells. They have the duty to look behind the curtain.

    It does look like the SCOTUS might begin pushing back on the Obama assault on individual liberties and state’s authority. However, to date, they don’t appear to be willing to address the underlying authority of Obama due to possible fallout erupting from the politics of the One.

    In my opinion, this (lack of confident in the fed) has to do with (some level of awareness of) the cumulative effect of media not doing its job in vetting Obama, the knee-jerk ridicule of anyone questioning the Administration, the gut feelings many American’s have that something is very wrong with/in this Administration, the disconnect between the Obama Administration words and the deeds, the class warfare, the attacks on liberty, the attacks on the successful, the lack of transparency, the breakdown of discipline in the Secret Service, the EPA official’s comment analogizing about crucifying oil companies, the different approach the media took regarding the accusations against Herman Cain and the accusations against Obama by Larry Sinclair, the way the Justice Dept. displayed racial bias in their protection of the New Black Panthers, the feeling that not everyone is equal under the law (Gibson guitar, Black Panthers, Zimmerman, the Tea Party, Obama, oil companies, Ted Nugent, etc.) the fast and furious disaster that began as a backdoor attack on gun rights, Inspector Walpin’s firing, pumping taxpayer money to donors of Obama for projects like the solar panel company, Obamacare mandates, the never-ending extravagant vacations for Obama and Michelle, etc., etc., etc., all the way down to the most basic question of all. Is Obama eligible to serve as President of the United States?

    Voters are becoming more and more aware at differing levels, the questions are seeping into the consciousness; and that’s why it is important to continue to raise these issues.

    We’ll see if the court and this judge have the courage to conduct a fair and complete examination of this issue.

    WND EXCLUSIVE
    Judge wants definition of ‘natural born citizen’

    byBob Unruh

    A federal judge has determined in a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility for a state ballot that the meaning of the constitutional phrase “natural born citizen” is “important and not trivial.”

    U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Tennessee said the courts ultimately must define “natural born citizen,” affirming that the “issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency is certainly substantial.”

    “This specific question has been raised in numerous lawsuits filed since President Obama took office,” Anderson wrote in his opinion. “The outcome of the federal question in this case will certainly have an effect on other cases presenting the same issue about whether President Obama meets the constitutional qualifications for the presidency.

    Van Irion, whose Liberty Legal Foundation brought the case, alleges the plan by Tennessee Democrats to register Obama as their nominee for president opens a case, under state law, of negligent misrepresentation and fraud or intentional misrepresentation because of doubts about Obama’s eligibility.

    Irion was pleased the court recognized the significance of the claims.

    “The court made several very positive statements about our case,” he noted.
    He cited Anderson’s statement that the court “finds that the federal question presented, the meaning of the phrase ‘natural born citizen’ as a qualification for the presidency set out in Article II of the Constitution, is important and not trivial.”

    “It is clear that the stated federal issue of President Obama’s qualifications for the office are ‘actually disputed and substantial,” the judge said.

    Anderson said it also is “clear that there will be a legal dispute over the Constitution’s definition of ‘natural born citizen’ and the Supreme Court’s decision in Minor.”

    Irion told supporters, “While it is certainly dangerous to read too much into such an opinion, the statements from this federal court are encouraging. The court appears to understand the most critical issues presented by our complaint.”

    He told WND that the issue identified by Anderson is what virtually all of the dozens of cases challenging Obama’s eligibility have been seeking: a ruling on accusations that Obama is unqualified.

    Previously, cases have been dismissed based on standing or other technicalities, not on the merits….

  27. citizenwells

    Thanks Zach.

  28. Minor v Happersett in 1874 defined natural born Citizen, the democrats have over the years, tried 8 different times to change the requirement to qualify for POTUS. They know perfectly well what natural born Citizen means, they have been trying to get rid of it for years.

    The democrats now have adopted the idiotic position that being born in the USA, regardless of the parents citizenship, is all that is required to be a natural born Citizen, in order to qualify Obama.

    If this was really the case, then what were the 8 different attempts at changing the rules all about?

    These lying criminals make me sick, and our elected representatives are guilty of misprison of felony, all for the sake of political correctness.
