    The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released their monthly jobs report. Now for the BLS Boogie. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 155,000 workers last month following a revised 161,000 advance in November that was greater than initially estimated. The unemployment rate printed at 7.8% which is up from 7.7% in November but the same as the UPWARDLY REVISED print of 7.8%. U6 partial unemployment printed at 14.4%. Labor force participation remained at 63.6%. And the civilian employment to population ratio fell to 58.6, still stuck are 1983 levels. That’s a lot of people for the 58.6% to support! The number of...

    This nightmare thought woke me in the wee hours the other night .... Can you imagine if a certain someone staged a certain attempted act on himself (or on one of his cronies, willingly or not)? The act would be staged to be unsuccessful -- perhaps a close call -- and he would use it as his clarion call to carry out a certain action on his agenda.Even more: imagine if he staged it to coincide with the annual Right-to-Life march, to pin it on pro-lifers -- to proverbially "kill two birds with one stone." And his lapdog leftist media...

But the lucky win turned unlucky very quickly when events led to Valenzuela’s deportation to Mexico. Federal law requires that winners of $1200 or more show identification for tax purposes.

    This doesn't quite qualify as breaking news for those who tracked the extraordinary labyrinth of intelligence that emerged in the days following the 2011 Abbottabad raid, but the subject of US interrogation policy is again generating controversy in advance of the release of 'Zero Dark Thirty,' a film that dramatizes the bin Laden mission.  Writing in today's Washington Post, a former top CIA counter-terrorism officer sets the record straight on what measures were, and were not, employed to help bring down the world's most infamous terrorist.  Jose Rodriguez -- who made headlines last year when his book exposed Nancy Pelosi's...

    A convicted serial killer currently on death row killed O.J. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, a new documentary claims. "My Brother the Serial Killer" claims Glen Rogers was behind the 1994 murders that made nationwide headlines. The documentary, which airs Nov. 21 on Investigation Discovery, includes a candid interview with Rogers' brother, Clay. "I'm absolutely certain that my brother killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman," Clay Rogers told the filmmakers. Glen Rogers was arrested six weeks after Simpson, the famous football player and Brown's ex-husband, was acquitted of the murders. Police claimed Rogers went on...

George Soros, the legendary investor, has revealed he spent around $10.6m buying 341,000 shares in the social networking site in the second quarter. The new investment by the billionaire, which was revealed in a regulatory filing by Soros Fund Management for his holdings at the end of June, is contrary to move of other investors who have been rapidly “defriending” Facebook ever since it listed in May. Shares in Facebook, which was one of the biggest listing in history and one of the worst performing, have plunged by almost 50pc from...

    Rockland Times ^ | 1/04/13 | DYLAN SKRILOFF
    The intentions of the Journal News’ editorial board in publishing a highly controversial “interactive gun map” are further occluded by an inconvenient fact. According to Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato, in Rockland County a large number of the names and addresses on the map are not even correct. Piperato said, “I’d figure about 25 percent of the addresses are not accurate.” He explained that when persons change their address or pass away it is supposed to be reported to the County Clerk’s office, but the county has no means to vigorously enforce this regulation. Thus pistol permit and other permit...
  • NAACP Shamefully Plays Race Card With Tea Party Conservative Senator Tim Scott

    Racism: The once-proud NAACP has dissed a new African-American Republican senator as a token who knows nothing about civil rights because, well, he's a Republican — unlike, say, Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act. NAACP President Ben Jealous made the claim Wednesday concerning Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. — the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction and the first black GOP senator since 1979, when Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts retired. Indeed, Scott is only the seventh African-American ever to serve in the chamber. Jealous based his claim on Scott receiving an "F" on an NAACP scorecard of...

    Lawmakers in Connecticut – still stunned from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting – are moving forward with legislation that could make public the names and addresses of 170,000 handgun permit holders in the state. The measure, introduced by state Rep. Stephen Dargan, is the latest effort to clamp down on guns in Connecticut. If passed, the bill would reverse a 20-year decision by state lawmakers to keep the personal information confidential. The legislation would make the information fair game under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. Dargan told FoxNews.com on Friday the measure was not intended to pit gun...

The files were dug up from the bureau's records vault and were requested via the Freedom of Information Act. Read the documents here.

    For the con man to get you to willingly hand over your possessions he must deceive your heart and mind that he cares about you. The success of the con man is sealed when the victim thanks him for taking advantage of them. Exactly what happened when the people reelected Barack Obama. Not only did the masses reward him with another four years to plunder their possessions they now thank him with a 56% job approval rating. How could Obama succeed in such a grand deception?

    After President Obama wrapped her in a well-publicized embrace, Donna Vanzant became the face of a promise of “immediate” assistance from the federal government in the days after superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast. But as Vanzant battled with her insurance company for the funds to rebuild her Jersey Shore marina, she had another brush with the commander-in-chief that left her feeling less confident in Washington's efforts. After sending an email to the White House asking for the federal government to make good on its promise to help, Vanzant received a form letter that never answered her questions. “It had...

"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That's not acceptable to me," Falco said, according to Newsday.

Given that virtually nothing has been done about the deficit, I fail to see how there can possibly be any debate on this. Yet there is. Theory number 2 (primarily liberals) still blames Bush for the "Bush Era" tax cuts, while moaning about spending cuts that did not happen, and bitching that not enough tax hikes occurred on the wealthy.

Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) led the way with four bills introduced.

All in the name of letting Obama “have his way” in sticking it to the rich, the deal to avert the country’s cliff dive doesn’t do anything but stall the country’s fall for another two months. Republicans, yes, REPUBLICANS, voted for the first time since 1991 to raise taxes on Americans, a lot of taxes and postponed dealing with the $1.2 trillion sequester, cuts to government spending, until February 2013. There are no government cuts in this bill, making it nothing more than...

    Following the fiscal cliff melodrama, Senator Richard Shelby appeared on television to declare that we are becoming European. "We're always wanting to spend and promise and spend and borrow but not cut. We've got to get real about this. We're headed down the road that Europe's already on." There's no "heading" about it. We're there. Prof. John J. DiIulio, writing in "National Affairs", outlined the true size of American government. When state and local government expenditures are added to federal outlays, government spending as a share of GDP easily competes with European nations. In fact, per-capita government spending in the...

Therefore, greenhouse gas forcing, aerosols, solar irradiance and global temperature are not polynomially cointegrated. This implies that recent global warming is not statistically significantly related to anthropogenic forcing. On the other hand, we...

    "1st Century Romans created the first folding pocket knife. They made for easy carrying for soldiers and other explorers on their journeys and conquests. However, as the use of sheathed knives became more popular, the use of pocket knives fell somewhat into disfavor......There are three common designs of pocket knives: the jack knife, the pen knife, and the multi-purpose knife. We’ll discuss the features and benefits of each one, in order to help you decide what kind of knife you should get. A jack knife has a simple hinge at one end, and may have more than one blade. The...

    Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” that President Barack Obama will pass sweeping gun control legislation by the end of January, according to Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. “He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino reportedly said at City Hall on Thursday. “They’re going to get it done.” Menino, a leading gun control advocate, has been recovering from a myriad of health issues over the last two months, but said Biden has called him a number of times while he was in the hospital. One of the calls came after the Newtown,...

    Let us exert our capacity to perceive what is or is not possible. Let us suspend all disbelief for one flickering, scintillating, inconsequential moment. Just imagine, my fellow conservatives and traditionalists, just imagine, that we somehow do pull it off, this distant sparkle of a notion being secession from the United States and creation of a new land. Imagine, if you will, that somehow,before the next fifteen years has passed, we are able to create a new state within this grand and fruitful plain, a virtual Picture In a Picture. Yes!, we have created a new land, within the United...

    1. Term limits for ALL congress members. No need to compromise their principles to win another term. 2. Voting rights for property owners only, or at least limited to Taxpayers. There is no sense in cancelling a well considered vote by some ditzy California deb who can't identify a picture of George Washington.( example Jaywalking, Leno show) 3.

    When I was a young man, a teenager really, I did the usual crazy stuff of the early, 70s, long hair, bell bottoms, wide ties, crazy plaids, shirt open at least least three buttons, and of course, rock-n-roll.But, through it all I had this love for older things. I think it had something to do with my Grandmother, Nana, whom I loved with great affection. Often she lamented the loss of the old things and old ways. She missed the Latin Mass, she missed when manners were better, when people remembered how to dress well, when things were more certain,...

    Reformed crooks say the New York newspaper that published a map of names and addresses of gun owners did a great service – to their old cronies in the burglary trade. The information published online by the Journal-News, a daily paper serving the New York suburbs of Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, could be highly useful to thieves in two ways, former burglars told FoxNews.com. Crooks looking to avoid getting shot now know which targets are soft and those who need weapons know where they can steal them. “That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T....

    An Oregon teenager has landed himself in the county jail for what must be one of the dumbest Facebook gaffes ever: posting about his drunk-driving hit-and-run escapade. "Drivin drunk ... classsic ;) but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P" was the early-morning post that quickly led to the at-home arrest of Jacob Cox-Brown in the Oregon-coast city of Astoria, reports the Daily Astorian. Upon reading Cox-Brown's post, two of the 18-year-old's Facebook friends contacted the Astoria Police Department to report it; it became vital information after two officers responded to a 1am report of a hit-and-run, which...

    Israeli Chief Rabbis Yona Metzger, left, and Shlomo Amar. The Jewish Press JERUSALEM, January 3, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) - Israel’s two chief rabbis have again issued a letter to all synagogue and community rabbis urging them to condemn abortion and to support the work of Efrat, the country’s pro-life organization. In stronger language than they have used in their previous messages, Chief Rabbi of Israel Yona Metzger and Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel Shlomo Amar called the killing of the child in the womb “murder.” “As in past,” the letter reads, “we call on all rabbis in Israel” to “raise in...
