Dem Senator: “Real Unemployment Is Over 11%” (VIDEO)

In October of last year, Donald Trump was mocked by Progressives for stating that the official unemployment numbers released by the Obama administration were phony and that the real unemployment rate was much higher.

In what only can be described as a shockingly candid admission, a Democratic Senator just admitted the same thing that made Donald Trump the punching boy of the left; That the Obama administration’s official unemployment numbers are fake.

At the end of last month, during a speech to the Story County Iowa Democrat Party, Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders admitted that “official” unemployment numbers are different than “real” unemployment numbers. Real unemployment is much higher:

“Because when you see in the papers that official is 5.8%. I trust that you all understand that is different than real unemployment.

“Real unemployment, government figures, excludes those people who have given up looking for work and those people who are working part-time when they want to work full-time. If you add those numbers together government statistics tell you that real unemployment in America is over 11%. Youth unemployment, which we never talk about, is 18%. African-american youth unemployment is close to 30%.”

How can we get it through their thick skulls that they need to register their guns?” Asks Katie, from North Bend , Oregon, during a Brady Campaign conference call that focused on gun control legislation in the state. “I’m a thousand percent supporter of gun registry, but what I have a feeling is that the paranoid people who are against it, they always seem to have something to hide, and that perhaps that is why they don’t want to register their guns… How can we get it across to the paranoid group to please register their guns? How can we get it through their thick skulls that they need to register their guns?

Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign and Oregon state Senator Ginny Burdick try to run damage control on the delusional woman, and instruct her on how to redirect her talking points. Senator Burdick says this isn’t about “registration”, but has been previously seen outright calling for registration in a prior video.

This portion of the call was captured in this video:

The wackjobs were back at it again at PSU, where the Northwest Regional Animal Liberation Forum took place on Feb. 7th.

Among the sponsoring groups were Student Animal Liberation Coalition, Portland Vegans Of Color, Resistance Ecology, Portland Animal Liberation, No New Animal Lab, Cascadia Animal Rights Alliance, Civil Liberties Defense Center, Portland Animal Welfare Advocates, Vancouver Animal Defense League, Free The Oregon Zoo Elephants, and Wildlife Defense League.

Presentation workshops included Anti-Oppression Training, Vegans Of Color Only Discussion Space (see video below of non-colored person ejected), Know Your Rights & Security Culture Basics, and Researching Targets. Also included in the program was a map of the “gender neutral” bathrooms in the area. After the forum they put a plan into action to protest at the home of a Skanska executive. Skanska is the construction company that has been contracted to build a new animal lab at the University Of Washington.

Videographer Daylight Disinfectant was on hand for some of the forum, and brings us these videos:

A cow character in one of the Power Point presentations asks “Who has more social power than you?”

This presenter poses the question “What kind of an asshole would eat a lamb?”

And here are the “all-inclusive” revolutionaries ejecting someone based on race from the “Vegans Of Color” presentation at a public event on a public university campus.

Democrat Governor Vetos Abortion Bill Citing It’s “Unconstitutional”

Posted by P.W. Adams on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015 at 4:33 pm

With President Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration, Ar-15 ammunition, and now the White House discussing executive action on taxes, it’s a wonder if the Democratic party has ever even read the Constitution, let alone worry about abiding by it. As a matter of fact the only time the Progressive left will even mention the Constitution is when they are using it as an excuse for something they have done. Especially when people aren’t happy about their decision.

Case in point.

The LA Times reports that the Democratic Governor of West Virginia, Earl Ray Tomblin, just vetoed a bill that would ban abortion at 20 weeks by citing that it was unconstitutional:

West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed legislation Tuesday that would ban abortions at 20 weeks’ pregnancy, noting that the law would not pass constitutional muster.

“It was the second time in two years that the Democrat vetoed bills that would make it more difficult for women to access abortion services.

“As reflected in my voting record during my time in the Legislature, I believe there is no greater gift of love than the gift of life,” Tomblin said in a written statement. “As governor, I must take into consideration a number of factors when reviewing legislation, including its constitutionality.

“At the start of the regular session, I urged members of the legislature to consider a compromise that would help us establish legislation that would pass constitutional muster,” he continued. “Having received a substantially similar bill to the one vetoed last year on constitutional grounds, I must veto House Bill 2568.”

“The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act provides no exceptions for rape or incest and threatens to strip medical licenses from providers who perform abortions after 20 weeks. It is based on the premise that fetuses feel pain 20 weeks after conception, which is in dispute.

“Federal judges have stopped similar pre-viability abortion bans in Texas, Arizona, Georgia, Arkansas and North Dakota.

“On Tuesday, abortion rights groups hailed Tomblin’s action and derided the bill as cruel and unconstitutional.”

Pro Choice America, a Pro Abortion Group, lists Governor Tomblin as a “Mixed Choice” politician. While the West Virginian House and Senate are listed as “Anti-Choice”.

“My Rights Are NOT To Be Questioned!” Cuban Refugee To Gun Grabbers

Posted by Michael Strickland on Sunday, March 1st, 2015 at 10:05 pm

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 5.39.29 PMThe gun grabbers in Oregon are back at it. While the big bills are yet to be introduced, one of the bills that was heard on February 26th was SB385, which would ban guns in “municipal courthouses.”

On hand to testify against yet another death-by-1000-papercuts bill was Oregon’s freedom defending celebrity and Cuban communism escapee Manny Martinez, who burst onto the scene 2 years ago with his blistering testimony at another hearing.

State Senator Floyd Prozanski, ardent enemy of 2nd Amendment rights, continually interrupts Mr. Martinez, to the point where Martinez is wondering if he should just leave.

University Official: Affordable College Is A Part Of Sustainability (VIDEO)

As the worshipers of Global Warming continue to manipulate and pervert their cause to such an extent that they now claim the warming of the planet is causing the record cold temperatures across the county. There are some who are now claiming that the cure to man-made global warming, Sustainability, includes not only efforts to make clean air and water, but now affordable college tuition.

During a recent interview California State East Bay’s Sustainability Director, Jillian Buckholz, stated that clean air, clean water, and affordable college are all apart of Sustainability:

“Sometimes when you talk to people about Sustainability, Climate Change, it seems like: “yea I think I kinda like that. I think I support that.”  But sometimes it seems like this big daunting task that what is one person like myself going to do about it?

But when you talk to people and you say, do you want to have clean air to breath, and clean water to drink? And live in a place that is easy to get around and doesn’t create a lot of gases and fumes where you live. And colleges that’s affordable and accessible to everybody. People say: “Yea I want those things.”

“And that is Sustainability.”

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 2.46.15 AMA new study from the Freedom Foundation in Washington state has uncovered several former teachers who have had their teaching licenses revoked due to things such as child molestation and other sexual abuses are still receiving their pensions.

A total of 22 teachers have hauled in over $5.1 Million in “retirement” during and after their time behind bars.

Republican state Senator Barbara Bailey wants to change that, but Washington Teachers Association representative Kit Raney says she “Would fight it.”

Meet Bloomberg’s Out-Of-State Operatives In Washington

Washington has been one of the target states for Bloomberg and his gun control efforts. Using strategies similar to Obama’s Organizing For America, combined with a multi million dollar public relations push, they were able to successfully pass a ballot initiative that would mandate background checks for private firearm transactions (though, by a considerably smaller margin than their initial polling).

So who are the folks working behind the scenes to make this happen? You probably won’t be surprised that many of them are from out of state, shipped in to “organize”.

Let’s start off with Meera Bhardwaj. She has been the lead organizer for Everytown/Moms Demand Action in Washington for about a year and a half. She still uses her 402 area code phone number, which is a Nebraska number, which is where she went to college from 2007 to 2010.

From Nebraska, she was dispatched to North Carolina in 2012 to work as a field organizer on the Obama campaign, which she quickly parlayed into a gig with Moms Demand Action shortly after the organization was formed.

At some point in the summer of 2013, as I 594 was launching into full signature gathering mode, Bhardwaj was called up from North Carolina and dispatched to Washington, and promoted to statewide organizer.

At some point between late June and early August, Meera Bhardwaj was dispatched to Washington.

She was very active organizing throughout 2014, helping to pass I 594.

As of February 10th, she is still the statewide organizer for Bloomberg.

7Co0pXQI_400x400Geoff Potter is the “Communications Director” for Washington Alliance For Gun Responsibility, which received $2,625,000 from Everytown, MAIG, and a direct contribution from Bloomberg himself in 2014.

Mr. Potter has a history that put him at Syracuse University and Iona College in New York, as well as working for Hillary Clinton’s staff in D.C. when she was a Senator. He operated in Minnesota in 2008, before landing in Seattle, where he bounced around between a few short term gigs and eventually ended up with WAGR.

 

 

Lisa HeadshotLisa Nikodem is an “Organizing Manager” for Moms Demand Action in Washington. She has spent time working for PIRG in Eugene, Oregon and Chicago as an organizer and canvass director. While in the windy city, she was a Campaign Director for a group called Environment Illinois. She’s relatively new to Moms Demand Action, as she’s only been working for them in Washington since January. Ironic that someone from the murder capitol of the U.S. comes into another state to lecture them about gun laws.

 

 

207003_1642677518575_1585950031_31289095_3539427_nEmily Parzybok is a “Community Relations Manager” for Center For Gun Responsibility, after previously running the Get-Out-The-Vote operation for WAGR in the 2014 election. It looks like she was originally from Washington, but moved to Boston at one point and largely stated out of politics until 2014. After stints in Nambia and Boulder, CO, she ended up back in Washington and went to work for the Bloomberg shill organizations.

 

 

 

 

At least Cheryl Stumbo, chief petitioner of I 594, is actually from Washington and has lived there for some time. Though. Ms. Stumbo is a marketing expert, like Shannon Watts and Jenn Lynch, so of course she knows how to package up the message and sell it to the masses.

To summarize, regardless of the state you’re in, when you see the MDA/Everytown people in the media and at events, it is highly likely that they are only in your state temporarily, to impose the wishes of their billionaire master, and they will soon be moving on to a different state after their damage is done.
