Jobless claims increase by 10,000 to 383,000

By Mike Thayer

The number of Americans filing first-time claims for jobless benefits went up for the week ending May 26.

The Labor Department's latest report shows unemployment claims rising 10,000 to 383,000, demonstrating what I've been saying for quite some time, that this economy is sour.  Anytime the figure is around 400,000, things aren't good.

In related news, the U.S. gross domestic product number has been revised.  The GDP grew at a slower pace in the first quarter than was first reported by the Commerce Department last month.  The number has been revised to an annualized rate of 1.9%, down from 2.2%.  Anything less than 3%, not good.

King Obama and his court aren't giving you the truth.


'Hatfields & McCoys' is a hit, but Kevin Costner is missing

Not only is History's miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" a smash hit, but it's earned star Kevin Costner glowing reviews while giving his career, which has hit a few bumps in recent years, new life and vibrancy.

But Costner is not exactly basking in the acclaim. In fact, he's doing just the opposite.

Trying to protect their taxpayer funded gravy train, Planned Parenthood spends $1.4 million to attack Romney

By Mike Thayer

Planned Parenthood officially endorsed President Barack Obama today, gee, do you think it's because Obama will continue funding abortions with taxpayer money?  

Along with proclaiming their endorsement of Obama, Planned Parenthood also announced a $1.4 million ad buy targeting Mitt Romney.  The ad will run in Florida, Virginia, Washington D.C., and Iowa, criticizing Romney's statements to end federal funding for the group.

Seriously now, how is funding abortions a proper role of the federal government?  Now that I've asked the question, let me answer it.  It's NOT a proper role of the federal government.  No taxpayer dollars should go towards Planned Parenthood at all, zero, nada, ziltch, none, zippo.

View the ad below and ask yourself, "How much of this ad buy is funded with taxpayer money?" 


Polish Prime Minister Demands Obama Address Nazi Gaffe

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk angrily demanded Wednesday that President Barack Obama explain his reference to "a Polish death camp" during a high-profile White House ceremony a day earlier, saying the remark smacked of " ignorance, lack of knowledge, bad intentions" and amounted to "a distortion of history."

"When someone says 'Polish death camps,' it is as if there were no Nazis, no German responsibility, as if there was no Hitler - that is why our Polish sensitivity in these situations is so much more than just simply a feeling of national pride," the prime minister said.
