Sleight of hand technique on jobs statistics?

The Obama Administration released yesterday the latest jobs statistics from December. Administration officials and those in the news media touted the latest unemployment numbers as a signal that the recovery is in full swing.
But the government also released another set of statistics that appears to totally nullify the good news the Administration and the media reported, which begs the question, "Did the Administration use the magician's sleight of hand technique to hide the bad news?"
Although the Labor Department reported that 243,000 new workers were added to payrolls across the country, bringing the unemployment rate down to 8.3%, the Department also reported that a record 1.2 million Americans dropped out of the labor force in one month--the highest level in U.S. history.

Sources close to the investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal (Project Gunwalker) that has engulfed the Justice Department have disclosed to reporters that House Speaker John Boehner is part of the effort to cover up criminal activity on part of the Department of Justice.

Vanderboegh: "It is possible the fix is in" on Fast and Furious

As one of the two original reporters who first broke the Fast and Furious story in December of 2010, Mike Vanderboegh has been known to sniff out a scandal or two during his illustrious life as a former Communist turned militia man turned Constitutionalist and gun rights activist.
And now he says regarding the Fast and Furious scandal, "It is entirely possible that the fix is in."
This was Vanderboegh's reaction to the Issa committee hearings on the scandal yesterday in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Dems propose more gun control, more money for ATF

During Attorney General Eric Holder's sworn testimony before Congress today, Democrats in one accord not only defended Holder's handling of the Fast and Furious scandal but proposed more gun control and more money for the ATF as means of addressing the problem.
Holder and the Democrats on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform blasted Republicans on the committee for questioning Holder's integrity, although it has been shown that he has lied to Congress on at least two separate occasions. The Justice Department also lied to Congress.
Rather than addressing the real problem at the core of Fast and Furious--corruption within the Justice Department and the ATF in approving an operation to allow thousands of U.S. guns to walk into Mexico as a vehicle by which to call for more gun control--Democrats on the committee instead have followed the script set in 2009 by those in the Obama Administration who conceived and implemented the illegal scheme.

Conservative revolt against Mitt the RomneyCare RINO

Opinion--The term 'RINO' stands for 'Republican in Name Only.' It is somewhat of a misnomer due to the fact that whoever wants to belong to a political party can do so, regardless of whether or not they agree with the party's platform and philosophy.
No one is suggesting that Mitt Romney is not a Republican. He is. But so are Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, Lisa Murkowski, and Scott Brown, all of whom have proved by their votes that they are more in line with liberals and the ideals of the Democratic Party than with conservatives.
The reason, thus, that such persons are called RINOS is that it is a moniker that has stuck, in reference to those Republicans who can be counted on to oppose conservative principles.
Thus, Mitt is a RINO. And he pushed for and got a program in Massachusetts, 'RomneyCare,' that one and all among political insiders agree is the blueprint for ObamaCare.
But that isn't Mitt's only problem.

To tell the truth prior to Florida primary vote

Tomorrow Florida Republicans will go to the polls to choose the candidate they prefer to face Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential election this November. At stake are Florida's 50 delegates to the GOP convention in the summer.
Florida's system is a winner takes all approach to appropriating delegates. Thus, whoever wins will take all 50 delegates to the convention.
Polls have shown movement in favor of Mitt Romney in recent weeks, although after the South Carolina primary Newt Gingrich emerged with a nine point lead. Gingrich's lead was erased due to a multi-million dollar deluge of negative ads by Romney, claiming that Newt "resigned from the House in disgrace due to ethics violations." 
Today this writer did a special radio broadcast delineating the facts concerning the ethics complaints against Gingrich, the background of the charges, and the results of a 3 year IRS investigation into the matter.

Central to committee chairman Darrell Issa's questioning of Holder will be new information in the latest Friday night document dump that shows the Attorney General knew about the illegal operation early on, including bombshell information surrounding the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December of 2010.

Fact checking Romney's attacks on Gingrich

In a series of television ads and speeches in Florida in the run up to the state's Republican primary on Tuesday, Mitt Romney has launched a series of serious attacks against Newt Gingrich that have had a definite impact on the race. Gingrich's nine point lead has evaporated, and Romney is now in the lead by 11 percentage points, according to several polls released Friday.
Romney used the very same tactic in Iowa to obliterate Gingrich's lead.
Few, however, in the news media or among the political pundits have done any fact checking on Romney's charges against Gingrich. And when they have done so, it was only in a cursory fashion along with the excuse that campaigns always go negative on whoever is perceived to be the front runner.
But Romney's charges are very serious and they have been very effective, which begs the question, "Are they true?"
A look at two of the most serious of Romney's claims will prove to be very telling.
