ALABAMA'S PLUNGING UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

Ken Berwitz

When President Obama brags that the unemployment rate has dropped to 8.6% (exactly where he warned us it would rise to if we did not pass his so-called "stimulus package", it should be noted that Alabama is gaining jobs faster than any other state.

And the reason should be noted as well:  namely that, since Alabama passed the strongest anti-illegal laws in the country (yes, stronger than those of Arizona), unemployment has dropped from 9.8% in September, to 9.3% in October, to 8.7% in November.

What's happening?  Illegals are streaming out of the state, vacating jobs they were holding - often at depressed wages and without benefits.  Those jobs are now available to legals, who are pretty obviously snapping them up.

But...but....aren't those supposed to be "the jobs that nobody wants"?  Isn't that the mantra illegal alien advocates have been reciting to us for years?

Well, read Alabama's unemployment data again.  Then you tell me if anyone wants them.

To the other states:  It seems that Alabama has found a solution to both the illegal alien issue and its too-high unemployment problem.  Any of you guys paying attention out there? 

And how about you nice folks in the mainstream media?  Are we going to see a feature or two on how the lower unemployment President Obama is busy taking credit for is due to actions he and his sock-puppet Attorney General, eric holder, are both dead set against?  

Not for nothing do I call them the Accomplice Media.

Isn't that the mantra illegal alien advocates have been reciting to us for years? --- ------ A few years ago, when 300 illegals were arrested at the Columbia Farms chicken plant, the next day people were lined up for miles to apply for all of those jobs. I have noticed since then the MSM have dropped the 'jobs nobody wants to do' mantra. (12/20/11)

Bush," these are jobs that Americans won't do" ..... .... .... before we had 10 or 20% of Mexico's population here illegally, ..... well, none of those jobs were ever done. .... .... ... Clearly, Mr. Obama is just following the policies of his two predecessors. .... ..... ..... .... Tea, anyone ? .... ... (12/20/11)


THE LAST REFUGE OF THE BLACK SCOUNDREL

Ken Berwitz

Samuel Johnson, the great 18th century author, famously said that "Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel".

If he had lived today, Mr. Johnson might have said "Racism is the last refuge of the Black Scoundrel".  Because, in the case of Barack Obama, and now his disgraceful toady and sock-puppet of an Attorney General, eric holder, to criticize either man for their voluminous (and increasing) list of failures is to immediately be called a racist.

In Mr. Obama's case, he has been smart enough to rarely make such a charge, electing instead to have surrogates make it for him.  But holder is not that smart, as you can see in the following excerpt from Matthew Boyle's latest blog for dailycaller.com:

Attorney General Eric Holder accused his growing chorus of critics of racist motivations in a Sunday interview published in the New York Times. When reached by The Daily Caller Monday morning, the Department of Justice provided no evidence to support the attorney generals claims.

 

Holder said some unspecified faction what he refers to as the more extreme segment is driven to criticize both him and President Barack Obama due to the color of their skin. Holder did not appear to elaborate on who he considered to make up the more extreme segment.

 

This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, Holder said, according to the Times. Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that were both African-American.

 

Holders accusations come as resignation calls mount from a growing list of 60 congressmen, two senators, every major Republican presidential candidate and two sitting governors, spurred on by the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.

 

Additionally, seventy-five congressmen have signed onto a House resolution for a vote of no confidence in Holder as attorney general. Between the two lists, there are 86 total in the House who no longer trust Holder to head the Department of Justice.

Simply stated, eric holder's charge is ridiculous. 

Demands for holder's resignation stem primarily (though not exclusively) from the Operation Fast and Furious debacle, during which he has shown himself to be both an incompetent and a flat-out liar.  In addition to Fast and Furious, holder made a joke of the Justice Department by vacating a default judgment against the Black panther thugs in Philadelphia, who clearly intimidated people from voting during the 2008 election. 

There is more.  But isn't this enough?  More than enough?

As someone who has ongoingly criticized eric holder (I won't even afford him the respect of capitalizing his name), and who regularly speaks out against racism, I cannot tell you how much I resent the claim that to be against holder and/or Mr. Obama is to be a racist.

Fortunately, however, the claim is being put forward by someone I do not respect.   That makes it a bit easier to take.

eric holder is a disgrace.  And the Obama administration disgraces itself every day it retains him as Attorney General.
