BECAUSE EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES TURNS TO GOLD … 

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama will intervene in a labor dispute blocking imports and exports at multiple west coast ports.

Due to friction between the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the Pacific Maritime Association – which represents the ports’ managers – containers have been backing up at ports up and down the “Left Coast.”  And ships have been backing up

The picture above (posted on the website Zero Hedge) was taken from the blog of photographer Mike Kelley, who flew over the coast of Los Angeles in a helicopter earlier this week.

Kelly has an absolutely amazing photo gallery posted on his website, MPKelley.com.  Seriously … it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen.  A MUST CLICK.

“It was one of the most exciting experiences I’ve had doing aerial photography – being that far out at sea, with the huge swells underneath you, and these massive, massive container ships everywhere was like living a scene out of Walter Mitty’s life,” Kelley wrote of his photo shoot.

Anyway … back to politics …

“The negotiations over the functioning of the West Coast ports have been taking place for months with the administration urging the parties to resolve their differences,” a White House spokesman told Reuters.

They haven’t, though … so Obama is now sending in his labor secretary, Tom Perez (this guy).

His mission?  “To travel to California to meet with the parties to urge them to resolve their dispute quickly at the bargaining table,” the spokesman said.

Right … 

This administration has been in the pocket of Big Labor from day one … and as a result has stopped the union bleeding in this country.  In fact unions are once again on the move – scoring a big win two months ago in Tennessee and eyeing what could be a historic victory in rabidly right-to-work South Carolina this year.

Basically this is nothing more than the union bringing a bunch of Chicagoland gangsters to the table …

U.S. retailers – who have suffered two disastrous back-to-back months – are pressuring the administration to

“The slowdowns, congestion and suspensions at the West Coast ports need to end now,” said Jonathan Gold, a National Retail Federation executive. “It’s time for the White House to immediately engage in this critically important economic priority and force the two sides to remain at the negotiating table until a deal is done.”

“This administration has been in the pocket of Big Labor from day one…” As opposed to the Bush administration which was in the pocket of big business — especially oil and gas — from day one?

Not sure where you live, but it sounds like you associate w/ some pretty Dumb#$$ people…
The TRUE unemployment rate is more than 10%. Obama’s gas and energy inflation has been a HARSH tax on SUFFERING American families for 6-plus years. Food costs are through the roof. Obamacare has brought ASTRONOMICAL Spikes in insurance premiums…and the insurance is WORTHLESS because the Deductibles are so high…
Incomes are declining…Race relations are abysmal. House prices are in the cellar. Our schools are in a mess…Socially, the polarization is more profound than it has been in 100 years…The courts are corrupt with liberal judges and Nadal Hassan is relaxing in prison. We trade brutal combatants for Islamic traitors. The IRS is persecuting the people the government hates and the power-mongers spy on perceived political enemies… And we have no idea who is crossing our border and what type of disease or warfare they are bringing….
AND IT IS ALL BECAUSE of the DEMORCAT PARTY….and Hillary is a Democrat…Is SUCKS to be that lily-white, privilege Elitist…while WORKING people struggle…while people like her live in luxury..telling us to Get F*#ked…because we’re not as good as her and Obama…

Rocky February 15, 2015 at 4:33 pm

What aternative universe do you live in STUPID. Real unemployment is real unemployment – 5.7%. Way down. Inflation has aeraged around 2.1% annually (or less) since 2009. Food costs are not through the roof stupid, not even close. My health insurance premiums went down this year, and I used the decrease to fund a health savings account to cover the deductible. You’re an idiot, who wakes up every night in cold sweats realizing the Fox News bullcrap you believe in and base your reality on is a total lie. I feel sorry for you – I really do. It must be hard to see your world view collapse around you, just like Berlin was collapsing around Hitler. So sad indeed.

In a Pew poll taken in mid-October, 32 percent of voters said that they considered their vote for Congress as a vote against Barack Obama; 20 percent thought of it as a vote for Obama. These figures are usually understated—people don’t like to say their vote for one individual is based on their feelings about another. The significance of the 12-point margin and of a third of the electorate saying that their vote was directed against the president becomes clear when one compares 2014 with 2010. In that year, 28 percent said they were voting against Obama and 26 percent for. In 1994, another big Republican midterm victory, only 21 percent of the electorate said they were voting against Clinton. The only midterm election where the vote was similarly directed against the president was 2006, when Americans cast a vote against George W. Bush. Like that election, this one was a referendum on the president.

Rocky February 15, 2015 at 8:58 pm

Except this President didn’t start an 8-year war based on lies just to prove he was toughter than his Daddy, or let bodies float around in New Orleans after a hurricane while saying Brownie was doing “a heckuva job.” And after that mid-term Bush was at 32% approval rating whereas the current President is at 50% and rising.

President Obama has lost nearly 70 seats in the House since taking office and more seats in midterm elections than any president since Harry Truman.

Democrats have suffered a net loss of at least 69 House seats since 2008, with the possibility that Republicans could pick up even more as the final 2014 midterm races are called.

Senate Democrats have not fared much better, losing a net of at least 13 seats since Obama took office.

Midterm elections have been brutal for congressional Democrats in the Obama era. The party lost at least 77 seats in the midterms in 2010 and 2014, though they gained back eight seats in 2012.

Obama has already surpassed President Dwight Eisenhower’s tally of 66 midterm losses in the House, according to data published by the Rothenberg Political Report. President Franklin Roosevelt and Truman each lost more House seats during their midterm years.

The 2010 midterms account for the bulk of the losses. In the tumultuous period after the passage of ObamaCare, Republicans picked up 63 seats in a wave election that awarded them

Rocky February 15, 2015 at 9:41 pm

Shut up flip. I apologized for my comment on Graham, and made a point of saying if Josh’s wife was falsely accusing him she should be punished, and also said she wouldn’t be because the courts are too spineless to do it. Obamacare numbers – I would suggest to you most people getting the coverage are glad to get it – and if it takes fines to keep moochers from taking advantage of the rest of us – so be it. After six years of Obama we have a lot to be greatful for. After six weeks of the GOP controlling Congress and we’re about to shut down the Department of Homeland Security – putting us at greater danger than before 9/11. Thanks Republicans – sure are gettin’ the job done – losers. And you’re one of them.

This is true. Bush, by refusing to have the OTS oversee thrifts and their toxic mortgage lending, ensure the Great Recession which did more to lower gas prices than anything. The collapse of the credits markats and near failure of the financial system sharply curtailed demand, resulting on gasoline prices near $2 a gallon when Bush borded the helicopter for Andrews Air Force Base. The subsequent joy of most of America signaled an instant rebound in optimism and prices rebounded to around $2.50 a gallon. Bush left the White House after President Barack Obama-mama whipped John McCain and Sarah “the Sunfish” Palin in a record electoral landslide, and after attending the inaguration which witnessed a record 1.2 million attendees flooding the Mall in Washington DC. But of course, you knew that.

GrandTango February 15, 2015 at 3:10 pm

Who FORCED banks to lend to people who could not (or would not) pay back..therefore CREATING the TOXIC mortgages…Remember Bush warned Congress about it more than a dozen times…

Rocky February 15, 2015 at 4:27 pm

CRA loans out-performed the toxic crap originated by such GOP-love children like IndyMaca and Washington Mutual. There were not enough CRA loans to cause a recession. Sorry dough-brain – you’ve once again falled prey to “talking points” of the GOP – Got No Plan. The Party that can’t even figure out how to fund the DHS – the very department they created. Can’t make that stuff up. Please return to your research – such that is is (not)!

Rocky February 16, 2015 at 9:45 am

I couldn’t let this rest Dumb@$$. Here’s the reality on CRA lending based on empirical evidence and data analyzed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

“In total, of all the higher-priced loans, only 6 percent were extended by CRA-regulated lenders (and their affiliates) to either lower-income borrowers or neighborhoods in the lenders’ CRA assessment areas, which are the local geographies that are the primary focus for CRA evaluation purposes. The small share of subprime lending in 2005 and 2006 that can be linked to the CRA suggests it is very unlikely the CRA could have played a substantial role in the subprime crisis.”

“Many loans originated through NWA programs are done in conjunction with banking institutions subject to the CRA, so the performance of these loans provides another basis to address the relationship between the CRA and the subprime crisis. Along any measure of the severity of loan delinquency or the incidence of foreclosure, the loans originated under the NWA program have performed better than subprime loans.”
Again, I am sorry that reality conflicts so violently with your peverted world view. My recommendation is that you read more broadly, ingest that information, and formulate new views based on more impericial evidence, a lot of which is now available. I know that the terms Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac tested negatively in focus groups by Frank Klutz and therefore were the basis of many GOP claims – but fortunately lending statistics are very broadly collected and available to the general public – allow you, Senor Grand Tango, to do your own analysis. If you need help you can either ask me for assistance, or contact some of the very good economitrix and modeling Professors at the USC GINT department or the School of Business.

GrandTango February 16, 2015 at 9:59 am

So you admit you used your hate and racism to punish private-sector business and damage our economy…Thank you…that will be all…

Rocky February 15, 2015 at 2:44 pm

Gas prices in 2005 through 2007 averaged a little over $3.00 a gallon, spiking in 2008 to over $4.00 a gallon. In 2009, during our current popularly elected Democratic president (who was elected by an electoral landslide twice), gasoline prices averaged around $2.70 a gallon. Thereafter they averaged around $3.50 a gallon, but have recently returned to below $3.50 a gallon. To be fair, gasoline prices during Bush’s first four years averaged just under $2.00. The primary reason for the increase in prices, however, was the market building in a risk primium on the price for oil because of a raging war taking place in Iraq – which was started, as you know, by President Bush. All this means is that while you might be technically correct, the $1.75 more is a stretch, since that would say that for most of Bush’s term gas was (3.50-1.75= 1.75) $1.75 – and that was not a price anyone saw after 2002. So therefore, besides being full of crap as always, you are wrong. But keep trying.

If I’m such a liar – why do you respond with simply calling me a (swearword) liar, and that I’m (swear word) stupid, in capital letters? You can’t ever respond to my comments with facts because you don’t have any facts. You just have some piece of bullshit you read on Brightwaybart, or Drudge Report, or some other right-wing shit slinger site, and you gobble it up like it’s gospel. Usually I would point out to you that the truth would set you free, but in your case it would probably blow your mind. You’re pathetic. You need another bitch-slapping like you got last week?

“He’s lost almost 70 Democrats since he’s been president,” Roberts said of Congress, “and more than 900 state legislators. So he needs to give Democrats something to run on.”

We had heard iterations of Democratic losses on the congressional level, but never such a large number of losses for Democrats in legislatures across the country.

Turns out, Roberts is correct.

Our analysis shows Democrats have lost 910 seats since Obama took office. (You can see the changes in every state here.)

We took a state-by-state look of lost seats from the best source available, theNational Conference of State Legislatures. Using the group’s data, we compared the number of Democratic seats in early 2009, when Obama took office, to the number of seats after the 2014 midterms.

The bottom line: Republicans now control about 56 percent of the country’s 7,383 state legislative seats, up 12 percentage points since 2009.

Thirty-five states posted double-digit seat losses for the Democrats in state legislatures, including more than 50 seats each in Arkansas, New Hampshire and West Virginia.

I think we all should be able to agree that the Son of “Read My Lips” did not do big business or big labor any favors. The only beneficiaries of the Bush Too administration were big greedy banks and bigger Fascist government … The only thing that was a net positive for The People was that Both Bushes allowed Alan Greenspan to keep inflation in check. … Oh Bummer? Not!

What was the TRUE unemployment rate under Bush II?…What was the average gas price the first 6 years of his adm. (before the Ds took Congress?)…Was coal plentiful and cheap for consumers…???

How many Americans were at the poverty rate, and received welfare, food stamps and Medicaid, under Bush II, compared to now?

What did Bush Administration officials tell Congress about banks being forced to lend money to people, based ONLY on race as collateral?

Who was developing solar and win mostly, under Bush II…the private sector, or government wasted dollars?

Were illegal aliens controlling our elections and collapsing our social welfare and healthcare system?

What was the deficit in EIGHT years of Bush II?

What direction did salaries move under Bush II?….What about taxes and tax rebates??…And did Iraq hold a free election w/ 70% turnout, despite terrorist squads vowing to murder voters???

What did we do to w/ enemy combatants in our prisons…get life-saving info. from them…or let them free to go kill more innocents and Americans???

What kind of relationship did we have w/ Israel under Bush…and in what direction did Al Qaeda and the Taliban go???

I think you’ve been drunkened on the Kool-Aid the media feeds the masses, in order to make voters think the Democrats are no worse than the Rs…

If you believe that, after honestly answering the questions I asked, you may need to take a look at your powers to reason…

Neither are They. Yes, I am agreeing with you. Internet searches on the fly this AM: “real unemployment” and “gas prices”.

GrandTango February 16, 2015 at 1:00 pm

That said: I thought Bush went out of his way (to a fault) to be fair. Unlike Obama, he was elected to be president of all, and he tried to be.

And Bush was very good for any and all business. Hence the good jobs numbers under him. I don’t see any real evidence that Bush catered to any segment, other than the law and the rules.

So I get defensive when I see charges to the contrary.

Rocky February 16, 2015 at 12:15 pm

Too many to answer. But let’s try. Deficit – averaged around $400 billion to $700 billion most years when you factor in he started at a surplus of $300 billion. So, about the same (and the war costs were off the books). Salaries were flat and declining under Bush, thank you very much. Indexed to inflation which by 2005 / 2006 was nearly 6%, they were tumbling. See post above about CRA loans, they outperformed non-bank crap (CRA loans are made by banks, non-bank lenders sunk the economy – many were thrifts regulated by the executive branch), Israel was a great ally, they sent millions of troops and aircraft to Iraq, taxes were cut for the most wealthy, and tax credits given to lower income – see deficits above for results, Bush invited in all the illegal aliens he could, championed Immigration Reform with pathway to citizenship, welfare rolls increased under Bush, spiked under Obama, gas started at $1.75, went to $3.00 in 2005 and spiked at $4.10 in 2008, Iraq held free elections at the cost of $3 trillion of our money, and 4,500 dead Americans – yippie. Solar and wind, private industry just like today. You need anything else?

GrandTango February 16, 2015 at 12:39 pm

Simple: Deficit rose by $9 trillion under Obama as much as all president’s before him COMBINED. In 4 years Obama increased the deficit by twice as much as Bush in 8 years…and Bush won a war Congress agreed to fight.

Rocky February 16, 2015 at 12:50 pm

He didn’t win crap. He got 5,000 American kids killed leaving in it’s wake a failed state that is now 1/2 controlled by ISIS because of it’s worthless government headed up by the guy Bush chose to run the show. It was an utter failure that history will forever attach to George W Bush and the GOP. Oh, by the way big Boy – polls yesterday and today have Hillary beating all her opponents, including Jeb Bush, in NH, VA and Iowa – so much for winning swing states. Without VA and IA how’s the GOP gonna get to 270 electoral votes again? That’s what I thought. Oh, and again, this morning, Obama approval rating by Rasmussen – 50%. That’s all for now. I’ve got things that need I need to get done. Some con calls, geting ducks in rows, nailing down loose ends, being constructive. But thanks for offering me the change to refute you’re BS one more time. Last thing to recall, under Bush, had he done nothing the national debt would have gone from $6 trillion to $3 trillion thanks to Clinton. So – actually, since he ended at $10 trillion, he actually more than tripled it. Obama hasn’t even doubled it yet. But let’s not quibble.

As opposed to the Bush administration which was in the pocket of big business

But that’s a good thing! “Big Labor” not only doesn’t donate to the Republican Party very often, it might even help the little guys get better compensation for their labor. Both are heavily frowned upon by the GOP. Gotta help those poor execs afford their yachts or they won’t keep buying your seat!

Wikipedia – The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) disaffiliated from the AFL-CIO on August 30, 2013. In 2014, the San Francisco Chronicle described the ILWU as “the aristocrat of the working class; a top member can earn over well over $100,000 a year with excellent benefits”, with vacancies receiving thousands or sometimes even tens of thousands of applications.
