Layoffs hit Las Vegas Sun newsroom; publisher points finger at agreement with Review-Journal


By Howard Stutz
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Posted: Sep. 15, 2011 | 3:46 p.m.
The Las Vegas Sun laid off nearly a dozen staff members Thursday, blaming its Joint Operating Agreement with the Las Vegas Review-Journal as the reason behind the cutbacks.
In a statement to employees that was posted on the Sun's website, Las Vegas Sun Publisher and Editor Brian Greenspun said the newspaper, an eight- to 12-page daily insert delivered with the Review-Journal, derives most of its revenue from the joint operating agreement with R-J owner Stephens Media.

OBAMA FEARS TOUCHING THE 'THIRD RAIL' - SOCIAL SECURITY

Obama backs away from Social Security in deficits plan



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama, yielding to pressure from his political base, has backed off a proposal to reform Social Security retirement benefits in a high-stakes deficits deal Congress needs to reach this year.
The Democratic president upset many core supporters in July when he considered changing how the popular pension funds are linked to inflation during acrimonious negotiations with Republicans over raising the U.S. debt ceiling.
Obama saw the change as a way to ensure the federal program remains viable for future generations, but liberals felt he was giving up too much ground to Republicans.
White House spokesman Amy Brundage said Obama's suggestions on how Congress can get to a $1.2 trillion deficit-reduction target, to be unveiled on Monday, "will not include any changes to Social Security."

TEXAS - TED CRUZ FOR U.S. SENATE- A CONSERVATIVE


This Man will Tip the
Balance of Power in Washington

Dear Fellow Conservative,

The balance of the Senate may come down to one Senate seat. Who sits in that seat matters a great deal to me.
Ted Cruz is running for the United States Senate from the great state of Texas. He is challenged on every side by establishment Republicans and attacked nearly every day by Democrats and liberals across the board.

SUPPORT HR 2885 MAKE E-VERIFY MANDATORY


U.S. House Began Action on E-Verify TODAY -- Most Important Bill in Our 15-year History
Judiciary Com. 'Marking Up' E-Verify, the Bill that Will Put Illegal Aliens Out of Work; Critical Votes Through Next Week


Dear Conservatives,
I'm certain you already know quite a lot about H.R. 2885, Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith's mandatory, 50-state E-Verify bill.
We surveyed our vast membership about E-Verify over the summer. We found out that more than 98% of our members support mandatory, 50-state E-Verify!
With your record of activism and support of NumbersUSA, you probably support mandatory E-Verify 110%! !!!

REPLY TO OBAMA, THIS LABOR BILL MUST NOT BE PASSED; EVER!!

Mathew Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action

      Last Thursday, President Obama announced the creation
      of his so-called "jobs bill" called The American Jobs
      Act of 2011.  Since then, in his public statements,
      the President has called on Congress to "Pass this
      Bill Now" over 100 times!  We are rallying tens of
      thousands of Liberty Counsel Action team members to
      counteract this bullying and to tell Congress, "Pass
      this Bill - Never!"  Please take a moment to read my
      urgent message below - Mat.               

Conservatives,

What has changed since the abysmal failure of President Obama's
first two stimulus packages - spending over a trillion dollars
and plunging America into almost $15 trillion dollars in debt? 

      The answer is - much has changed, but not for the better!

My Job Application for Independent Counsel
Excerpt: Now that White House emails suggest that the Obama administration wasted hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to prop up a failing firm just to make a political point about green energy, isn't it time for an independent counsel? The independent counsel statute (which I thought was unconstitutional based on the dissent of Justice Scalia in Morrison v. Olson and Judge Laurence Silberman's majority opinion in that case in the lower courts) has long expired, but the Attorney General can appoint one on his own under Justice Department regulations. There are many capable candidates, but I volunteer. As a law professor, I wouldn't charge the administration much -- and we know how much help they need in watching their pennies. I used to live in Fremont, California, home to Solyndra -- I know many of the good Chinese and Indian places to eat nearby. I would be more sympathetic than most to the Obama administration's claims, if any, of executive privilege. I have a good working relationship with people at the Obama Justice Department. I know lots of people who would love to work hard on the investigation. Any other volunteers? And any ideas of where we should take the investigation? Any questions to ask of potential witnesses? (Yoo served in G W Bush's White House. He was the attorney that found no crime in "Waterboarding". The Obama Administration tried to prosecute him for that opinion.. –Dave.)

INFLATION AND OBAMA RESPONSIBLE! HIS 'TEAM' FAILING MISERABLY

, On Thursday September 15, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Consumers paid more for a range of goods and services last month, pushing up inflation and squeezing Americans' purchasing power.
The Consumer Price Index rose 0.4 percent in August after jumping 0.5 percent in July. The core index, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, rose 0.2 percent.
For the 12 months that ended in August, the core index surged 2 percent, the biggest year-over-year increase in nearly three years. That's at the high end of the Federal Reserve's informal inflation target. It could limit the central bank's ability to take further steps to try to revive the economy.

Solyndra, the solar panel company whose highly publicized failure and consequent investigation by federal authorities has flashed across headlines recently, isn't the only business to go belly up after benefiting from a piece of the $800 billion economic stimulus package passed in 2009. 
At least four other companies have received stimulus funding only to later file for bankruptcy, and two of those were working on alternative energy.
Evergreen Solar Inc., indirectly received $5.3 million through a state grant to open a $450 million facility in 2007 that employed roughly 800 people. The company, once a rock star in the solar industry, filed for bankruptcy protection last month, saying it couldn't compete with Chinese rivals without reorganizing. The company intends to focus on building up its manufacturing facility in China.

Democrats Are 'In Open Revolt' Over President Obama's New Stimulus Plan

'In five speeches over a week, President Obama has said 'pass this bill' or some variant of it 90 times. That's 18 times in his speech to Congress, 18 times at the University of Richmond, 12 times in the Rose Garden (when he officially unveiled his 155-page bill), 18 times at a high school in Columbus, and 24 times at North Carolina State University.' (Pass The Bill, Obama Says 90 Times,รข€ Politico's 44, 9/14/11)

IF WE DON'T GET OBAMA AND LIBERALS OUT OF OFFICE THERE WILL BE NO MIDDLE CLASS!!!



How Wall Street and the media forgot about the middle class – 10 incredible charts highlighting the problems facing the middle class.  China labor costs, debt ratios, Euro-zone finances, and balance sheet disequilibrium.
The mainstream press and ego driven politicians have completely forgotten about the middle class in this country, pretending as if ignoring the cacophony of discontent would simply make it go away.  Both parties are simply doing the bidding of the financial upper-crust and that is why you rarely hear about household income being discussed in any television show.  Yet as we are seeing with record low consumer sentiment to accompany a broken balance sheet and empty savings accounts, the public can get a dose of reality by simply examining their own life.  Are things really better?  What Americans should now fully realize is that the bailout schemes were nothing more than a wicked robbery and transfer of wealth from the majority to a slim connected plutocracy.  Those who write and advocate for our laws, the politicians, have made sure a national thievery would go unpunished courtesy of campaign contributions.  The system is completely broken and thedisappearing middle class is merely a consequence of this financial plundering.  Since the tech crash, the housing crash, or the energy debacles were completely missed by the media do not expect to have any guidance coming from the paid spokesmen of Wall Street.  When did Wall Street and the media decide the middle class was irrelevant?

OBAMA ACCOMPLISHING HIS AIM. BANKRUPT AMERICA!

President Obama's Folly
By Cal Thomas

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | "If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person." -- Bill Clinton
Nearly every time President Obama delivers a speech about the economy or jobs, something bad happens. His speech to Congress last Thursday night is the latest example. The next day, the Dow Jones Industrial Averages plunged 303 points, a decline replicated in other indexes in the U.S. and overseas.

TRUE CHRISTIANS DO NOT RUN IN FEAR!

Are Evangelical Christians Warmongers?
And where are today’s evangelical Christians giving a second thought regarding their fellow Christian brothers and sisters in many of these Middle Eastern countries that are being persecuted, imprisoned, tortured, and killed by the puppet regimes being put in power by the US government--at US taxpayer (including Christian taxpayer) expense? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but more Christians have been persecuted under the US-imposed regime in Iraq than were ever persecuted when Saddam Hussein was........

CREAM OUT TO CONGRESS - UNIONISM IS NOT THE WAY! FREEDOM IS!

Protect Free Enterprise: Limit NLRB’s Power   

If you were a small or large business owner, could you ever imagine that here in America the government would dictate where you could or could not relocate or expand your production facility or business? Well, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) backed by liberal labor unions has done just that to aerospace giant Boeing.

In 2009 Boeing decided to open a new assembly line in North Charleston, South Carolina. The International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers (IAM) filed a complaint with the NLRB alleging that locating the plant in South Carolina, which is a right-to-work state, rather than expanding the home-based Washington-state facility which employs union workers, amounted to illegal retaliation against union members. NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon then sought to file a criminal complaint against Boeing for relocating in a non-union facility. Boeing then increased the size of its unionized Washington work force and placed only new work in Charleston, but it didn’t matter. The NLRB continued the lawsuit regardless of the fact that there has been no actual financial loss or immediate impact on union workers.

OBAMA HAS NO IDEA AS TO HOW TO OLVE THIS UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM

Unemployment has regained the top spot on Gallup's monthly measure of the most important problem facing the U.S., displacing the economy. Americans' concerns about the federal budget deficit have eased slightly, while mentions of government as the top problem remain relatively high.
