How effective were Obama’s green jobs initiatives?
  14 Feb 2012     12:00 am      Wintery Knight

From the LA Examiner.
Excerpt:
U.S. House of Representatives investigations have revealed the failed green jobs initiative in President Obama’s ambitious environmental agenda.  With an initial government cost of one-half billion dollars, evidence proves that only about 10% of sponsored trainees were placed in green jobs.
As part of the Obama green energy program, the goal was to train 124,893 people, and place 79,854 (64%) in new green jobs. After 17 months, the results of the green jobs program indicate that only 52,762 were trained, and only 8,035 got green jobs – each …

State of the Union or Wishful Thinking?
  25 Jan 2012     5:46 pm      Michael Fell

The 2012 State of the Union address has come and gone with little change in the White House’s view of the world. This is unfortunate. America needs viable solutions, not more wishful thinking.
Most disturbing is the continued, steadfast insistence that doubling America’s corporate tax rate will somehow create middle class jobs. After repeated failures by the current Administration to productively invest taxpayer’s money in green energy companies like Solyndra, what track record exists to support the assumption that government can invest the people’s money more wisely than those who earned …

How Barack Obama used taxpayer dollars to outsource green energy jobs
  25 Jan 2012     4:00 am      Wintery Knight

This is from Hans Bader at GlobalWarming.org.
He links to this ABC News story.
Excerpt:
Despite all the talk of green jobs, the overwhelming majority of stimulus money spent on wind power has gone to foreign companies, according to a new report by the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University’s School of Communication in Washington, D.C.
Nearly $2 billion in money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been spent on wind power, funding the creation of enough new wind farms to power 2.4 million homes over the past year. But the study found that …

An Open Letter to the Occupiers from Generation X
  20 Jan 2012     11:04 am      Rachel Alexander

To the Occupy movement:
I know some of you mean well. I even share some of your concerns. The dismal economy has made it difficult to find a good job with benefits. Meanwhile, the government is bailing out the wealthy banks and mortgage lenders that helped precipitate this depressed economy.
I hear your frustrations about student loan debt. Generation X has a lot of student loan debt too, with little relief available. The older generations have indebted our generations for years down the road, and with the rising costs of school tuition, …

Democrats Trick Americans With Payroll Tax Cut Extension Ruse
  16 Dec 2011     1:56 pm      Rachel Alexander

The Democrats are accusing Republicans in Congress of opposing the extension of payroll tax cuts. On the face of it, something seems wrong. Republicans are usually in favor of tax cuts and Democrats generally oppose them, except when there is a Democratic special interest involved like environmental causes. Democrats using the payroll tax cut extension negotiations to portray themselves to the American people as the party that cares about leaving more in hardworking Americans’ pockets. White House press secretary Jay Carney recently declared at a press conference, “What happened to …

Video: Obama: Capitalism and Liberty Don’t Work
  8 Dec 2011     12:00 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama, President of the United Deniers of America, is slamming the country again. This time he ways that capitalism, liberty, and American principles have never worked.
Speaking in Osawatomie, Kansas, where in 1910 an off-the-rails Teddy Roosevelt laid out a new socialist-inspired dream for America he entitled the “New Nationalism,” Obama had a few choice words for our American principles.
In his speech, Obama went for the gusto in class warfare rhetoric characterizing anyone that makes a few dollars as the eeevil rich that refuse to be “fair” to the poor. …

Greedy Union to Destroy Black Restaurant Owner’s Business
  1 Dec 2011     10:12 am      Warner Todd Huston

An actress, model, and African American business entrepreneur credited with reviving a once-blighted neighborhood and bringing back theater goers to the New York Theater District is about to lose her business to a greedy union that wants to hike the rent for her famous restaurant 350 percent.
Back in 1986, Barbara Smith, sometimes called “the black Martha Stewart,” opened a restaurant in the Theater District called B. Smith’s. Her eatery soon became the toast of theater goers and stars alike. It also became a favorite in the African American community.
B. Smith’s …

The Chevy Volt: Detroit’s Hottest Car (Cuz They Catch on Fire and Stuff)
  29 Nov 2011     1:04 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Government Motors has finally found its hottest car and the Chevy Volt is it. Unfortunately for Chevy, it isn’t because it is popular. It’s because the car seems to catch on fire a lot. Industry watchers are preparing for the Volt to undergo a recall to fix whatever problem the car’s lithium-ion battery pack has that seems to be causing the vehicles to spontaneously burst into flames.
Of course, this little catching on fire problem seems emblematic with everything about Government Motors. After President Barack “Lee IaJokka” Obama pumped $53 billion …

California Ballot Boondoggle Sends Tax Dollars Out of State
  20 Nov 2011     12:56 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Despite all the talk of fixing it, California’s budget is still a mess. One of those “fixes” was implemented last summer when the state Legislature increased revenue projections by $4 billion to avoid balancing the budget. Of course, the problem with using such “phantom money” is that it often has a habit of disappearing when you need it most. And it has disappeared just when money for schools is needed. Now deep cuts are on the table. The people lose again.
Naturally the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office recently reported …

The “Super Committee” Shows What’s Wrong With America’s Government
  18 Nov 2011     5:47 pm      Michael Fell

Per The Hill online: Friday, November 18, 2011
“In a closed-door briefing Tuesday, Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), the Republican co-chairman of the panel, said divisions among Democrats are standing in the way of an agreement. He told his colleagues the GOP had put multiple offers on the table that Democrats had yet to accept.
Boehner told reporters that the GOP offer was ‘fair,’ referring to a $1.2 trillion proposal by supercommittee member Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) that included $300 billion in new tax revenue.”

Illinois CAT Dealer: Illinois’ Worst Business Climate Getting Worse
  17 Nov 2011     6:16 pm      Warner Todd Huston

On Wednesday I attended a “government day” event at Patten Industries, a 78-year-old Illinois Caterpillar dealer situated in Elmhurst, a northwest suburb of Chicago. The event, led by current General Manager Garrett Patten, featured a discussion on the severely unfavorable business climate in Illinois and why the state is lagging so horribly behind the leading economic indicators of every surrounding state.
Patten Industries has been guided by four generations of Pattens, the company having been founded by B. C. Patten, Sr. in 1933. But Illinois has not been good to the …

Death By Regulations: Has Obama Lost Senator Blanche Lincoln?
  7 Nov 2011     12:50 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Last year for the 2010 midterms Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln was in trouble with her reelection. Up until 2010 most felt her seat was a safe one but Democrat challengers pushed the sitting Senator to a runoff that she barely won. 55% of her constituents opposed her.
Lincoln welcomed the support of President Obama who cut an early ad for the Senator portraying her as a “populist crusader.” Still, Lincoln lost her her reelection bid to Republican John Boozman.
Obama may have come to Lincoln’s aide in 2010, but it doesn’t …

Ballot Measure Boondoggle – High Speed Rail Costs Balloon to $100 Billion
  4 Nov 2011     10:54 am      Warner Todd Huston

By Steve Maggi
Nearly $100 billion. That’s what High Speed Rail is now going to cost California taxpayers – more than double the costs initially promised by the proponents of Prop 1A, which contained the initial taxpayer financing for the project.
2033. That’s when the HSR project is now expected to be completed – 13 years after it was initially supposed to be completed.
So, in the three short years since voters were sold this bill of goods, the costs have gone up $50+ billion and the time to complete …

Occupy Wall Street Kitchen Staff Tired of ‘Freeloaders’?
  29 Oct 2011     11:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

Apparently some of the folks slaving away to cook politically correct meals for the participants of Occupy Wall Street are sick and tired of working themselves to the bone for homeless people, criminals, and other freeloaders who are eating their food. This is called being mugged by reality.
It is also pretty darn funny.
The New York Post reported that volunteer kitchen staff at Occupy Wall Street are angry about working 18-hour days to feed the protesters but are being taken advantage of by the local homeless people and criminals. And they …

Obama-Emperor Less Than Zero’s Open Deceit
  25 Oct 2011     5:05 pm      Michael Fell

The current White House occupant is spending taxpayer money (again) flying around the country going to fundraisers (again) extrapolating on his 2012 re-election strategy to blame Republicans for the failure of policies implemented by himself, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (again).  Now he’s going around a “do nothing Congress” (see the U.S. Senate, controlled by “progressive” Democrats) via Executive Order (again). 
Never mind that when emperor less than zero was a State and/or U.S. Senator, ruling by decree was a gianormous NO NO.  Now that he (a self imagined and self appointed member …

VIDEO: Suspected Terror Supporter Attacks Jews at Occupy Chicago
  22 Oct 2011     11:40 am      Warner Todd Huston

Chicago’s RebelPundit came across some of those nice Occupy Chicago folks wishing good thoughts for all the kind participants at the protest… they kindly wished that Israel be destroyed.
Worse, one of the guys these Occupy-Whatevers allowed to speak is a suspected funder of Middle Eastern terrorists.

Just like the left, eh? Haters, racists, and anti-Semites galore.
Note also that a Chicago TV station was filming the event. Note also that said film was never aired in Chicago.
The “news,” you see, don’t want to discredit the Occupy-Whatevers as much as they can avoid …

Slouching Towards Wall Street
  15 Oct 2011     7:40 pm      Kristen Walker

Occupy Wall Street is occupying every pundit’s commentary right now. I’d love to ignore it and focus on something else, but I’m too fascinated by watching the wreckage of civil society mewl and puke in the streets of Manhattan.
The Tea Party, a grassroots movement of Americans concerned that the Constitution is being abandoned (and it is) by our government, has been referred to in the press as racist by Keith Olbermann and many others, and compared to the angry rabble gathered outside the University of Alabama in 1956 hoping to …

Occupy Wall Street College Grads Should Sue Their Schools
  14 Oct 2011     6:06 pm      Michael Fell

What’s most puzzling about Occupy Wall Street is a persistent resistance by recent college graduates to acknowledging the cause and effect phenomenon manifested by big government interference in business.

When you employ the economic policies of Woodrow Wilson, FDR and Jimmy Carter you’re going to get a lousy economy because you’ve created a climate that’s unfriendly to business.  To blame corporations and especially small business for not hiring when the business climate dictates they take steps to insure their survival is wrong.
If you’re the CEO of a corporation who’s responsible for ensuring …

Rep. Jan Schakowsky Thinks Gov’t ‘Creates Jobs’
  10 Oct 2011     1:28 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Recently Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D, Illinois 9th District), whose husband has been convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion, was interviewed by the far left website truthout.
You’ll remember truthout for its scoop back in 2009. It was truthout that was the first to report the big news that Karl Rove had been indicted. Unfortunately for this “news” site, Karl Rove was never indicted. That was a spot of bother, indeed, going to impugn the site’s veracity just a bit. You may also know that original editor, Marc Ash, was ousted …
