  • Troubled NC Unemployment System Gets New Leader

    WRAL ^ | 5/27/20
    For years, WRAL Investigates chronicled troubles inside North Carolina’s Employment Security Commission, now called the Division of Employment Security. Those troubles became even more noticeable with a flood of new unemployment claims because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since mid-March, the system has been swamped by 1.3 million claims, representing 955,000 people out of work. Some had to file twice based on the type of coverage they qualified for. Of those 955,000, about two thirds have received payments. "I’m sorry," said Lockhart Taylor, Assistant Secretary and head of Employment Security, as complaints piled up from people who couldn’t get into the...
  • Millions locked out of U.S. unemployment system: survey

    04/28/2020 4:03:47 PM PDT · by Libloather · 36 replies
    Millions of Americans who have been thrown out of work during the coronavirus pandemic have been unable to register for unemployment benefits since the U.S. economy entered a free fall, according to a poll released on Tuesday (April 28). The left-leaning Economic Policy Institute found in an online poll that for every 10 people who have successfully filed unemployment claims, three or four people have been unable to register and another two people have not tried to apply at a time of acute economic crisis. **SNIP** EPI's survey indicates that an additional 8.9 million to 13.9 million people have been...

    Deborah D. Moore knows a thing or two about prepping her pantry for an extended period of time, having lived most of her life as a “prepper” before there was even a word to describe “prepping.” “When I was a newlywed, just 19 years old, we lived in Detroit,” explained Moore, the author of “A Prepper’s Cookbook,” in an interview with Fox News. “I heard there was a snow storm coming and we were to stay off the roads … I checked my cupboards and we had a half loaf of bread and two cans of soup.” As Moore told...

The biggest threat that social media censorship poses is not you being unable to access Facebook or Twitter, itÂ’s you not being able to get a mortgage or have a bank account.The end result of Big Tech silencing conservative voices is banks and corporations removing your access to the marketplace and severely restricting your basic right to buy and sell.We have already seen numerous instances of people being deplatformed by BANKS for the political opinions, from...
  • New Venezuela fuel payment system gets off to slow start

    **SNIP** The new system entails Venezuelans applying for and using a state-backed digital identification document to pay for fuel, with the government providing gas stations with wireless devices that will read the card. Leftist Maduro has said the system will limit the cross-border trading of gas, which is so heavily subsidized that drivers often do not even bother paying for it. Last week, he said the new payment system would roll out on Monday. **SNIP** “To me this system is garbage,” said Mercedes Fernandez, 41, a systems engineer. “We don’t even know how much it’s going to cost, or how...

    The Turkish government is still in talks with Washington about the possible sale of Patriot missile defense systems, a senior Turkish official said Friday. Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Deputy Chairman Öztürk Yılmaz, who visited Washington last week, told a group of Turkish journalists on Friday that Turkey contacted Americans about the Patriot systems two to three weeks ago. The Turkish official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed Yılmaz's remarks and said that Turkey was routinely conducting this kind of talks and Turkish expectations on the deal has not changed. "For us, technology transfer and joint production...

"This is the perfect target for such an exercise because while we know the orbit of 2012 TC4 well enough to be absolutely certain it will not impact Earth, we haven't established its exact path just yet," says Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies. This experiment will test how well NASA can determine the orbit of a newly detected asteroid that might pose a danger to us. If the...

    The human immune system is so weakened by space travel that even a simple virus could prove deadly [...snip...] Yet although we now have the technological ability to leave Earth, scientists have found another stumbling block to colonising new worlds - our own immune system. Although it is said we are all made of ‘star stuff’ when it comes to travelling away from our home planet humans are far more vulnerable to the rigours of space than our interstellar origins might suggest. Billions of years of evolution has effectively backed mankind into a corner of the Solar System that it...

    The 2016 presidential election seems to have rocked the two party system. This corrupt way we run our country will inevitably collapse as it is unsustainable. The people are waking up and more Americans are becoming Independents on a daily basis, disgusted by the hypocrisy inherent in both major political parties. Democrats were ridiculously confident in their ability to defeat the new Republican Party with Donald Trump as its face and they are only making matters worse since their defeat last November. The party of the left remains in shambles. Its leadership is nonexistent. Their donors are outraged. And the...

    The United States is sailing in uncharted waters today as the intelligence-security community wages an all-but-declared rebellion against President Donald Trump. Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein’s decision on Wednesday to appoint former FBI director Robert Mueller to serve as a special counsel charged with investigating allegations of “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,” is the latest and so far most significant development in this grave saga. Who are the people seeking to unseat Trump? This week we learned that the powers at play are deeply familiar. Trump’s nameless opponents...

    If you’ve ever considered that the systems of governance seem to be geared towards crushing the regular folk, you’d not be far wrong. It’s not exactly that the machinations of the elite are specifically against the individual, it’s just that the individual is an inconvenience to the processes of power. Should you think this position is a little out there, consider the following: Free-Speech Zones If there is such a thing as a Free Speech Zone, by its very nature this means that all other areas are not Free Speech Zones. When the government (and in many cases the College...

    Full title: How to steal $75,000 from the poor in one Day's work - traffic court is a tax collection scheme masked as justice The new liberality concerning marijuana possession in the United States is long overdue, but let’s not exaggerate how much progress we’ve made. Users might not be ending up in jail as frequently as they did 10 years ago. But cops, judges, and courts still exercise arbitrary power to ruin people’s lives, and they continue to do so at astonishing rates, all over the country. I recently saw this firsthand. I sat in a municipal traffic court...
