How the $15 wage is already killing jobs in Seattle

Unintended consequences.

Via NY Post: Spiking the minimum wage statewide may appeal to a Democrat eyeing a future run for national office. But it’s a bad idea for New York.

Don’t believe us? Look how it’s working out in real life at a town already en route to a $15 minimum — Seattle. An American Enterprise Institute report sums up the results. Spoiler alert: It’s not pretty.

Seattle passed its $15 law in June 2014. Starting last April, it raised the minimum from $9.32 (the state minimum wage) to $10 for certain business, $11 for others.

Increases to $12, $12.50 and $13 an hour began taking effect for most employers this Jan. 1. The jumps will continue until the minimum hits the full $15 an hour in 2017 for some before it’s universal in 2019. Yet even the early impact is harsh.

The AEI study, worked up from Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly surveys, shows that, between April and December last year, Seattle saw the biggest employment drop in any nine-month period since 2009 — a full year into the Great Recession.

The city unemployment rate rose a full percentage point.

Before the minimum-wage hikes begin, Seattle employment tracked the rest of the nation — slowly rising from the 2008-09 bottom. But it started to plunge last spring, as the new law began to kick in.


Furthermore, Seattle’s loss of 10,000 jobs in just the three months of September, October and November was a record for any three-month period dating back to 1990.

Meanwhile, employment outside the city limits — which had long tracked the rate in Seattle proper — was soaring by 57,000 and set a new record high that November.

Seattle is learning that it can’t unilaterally ignore basic economics. Businesses adapt to government dictates. To survive mandated pay hikes, they lay off employees, or avoid new new hires to control costs.

America, meet your future

The United States, like Brazil, has elected an openly Socialist president.

We can see our future in the streets of Brazil if we don’t stand up and resist this trend. In the 20th century, the Socialists committed enough worldwide genocide to make even the most radical muslim blush with inadequacy.

Today’s article in WND.com details horrifying breaking news that should send a warning to us all.




Soldiers wearing U.N. logos evict whole towns in land grab

By Alex Newman

Thousands of poor Brazilian families are living in wretched conditions at make-shift refugee camps after being evicted from their homes at gunpoint by federal forces, some of whom were sporting United Nations logos, according to sources.

Towns literally have been wiped off the map, and no compensation was offered to the victims. About 400,000 acres of land were expropriated in the latest operation.

Residents in the Siua-Missu area in the state of Mato Grosso battled heavily armed federal police and military forces for weeks using sticks, rocks, Molotov cocktails and other crude weapons.

In the end, however, the powerful national government forces were overwhelming.

Virtually all of the residents have now been displaced, living in squalor, packed into school gymnasiums in nearby towns. Others are living on charity under plastic tarps propped up with sticks with no clean water or sewage services.

Leaders of the feeble resistance, meanwhile, are being hunted down by authorities for punishment.

The Left Are Pushing for a Civil War


Source: JB Williams – (9/6/11) – Republished by Patriots News.

As the political left drives the U.S. economy towards the brink of no return and an increasing number of average Americans find themselves in desperate financial situations, crime is on the rise and social tensions are rocketing towards a historic level in the land of milk and honey.

Yes, I am predicting the Second American Civil War, but only because the political left is working around the clock to incite outright socio-economic and race warfare in America.

Unlike any prior American administration, this one is intentionally destroying what’s left of America’s free-market prosperity and now they are openly calling for all-out war on all patriotic Americans. Obama’s civilian army is ready to roll in the streets of the U.S.A. and as labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. put it at a Labor Day weekend rally, “Let’s take these son of a bitchs out!” – telling Barack Obama that “we (labor union members) are your army and we are ready to march.”

President Barack Obama proudly accepts Hoffa’s call for war against the 88% of Americans who do not belong to labor unions.

Days before, leaders of the Democratic Socialist Black Caucus called upon blacks to begin race wars against white Americans in the streets, and make runs on U.S. banks to cause even more economic chaos during the most tumultuous economic time since the Great Depression.

In Cincinnati Ohio, Vice President Joseph Biden spoke to the AFL-CIO referred to patriotic Americans as “barbarians at the gate” and called upon all union thugs to “stand up” against American taxpayers who have been Taxed Enough Already. Biden claimed that “this is a fight for the heart and soul of the labor movement in America” – and that this is the time for all union thugs to stand and fight against their sworn enemy, the American taxpayer.

Never before in U.S. history has an administration taken such overt actions to create a class/race war in America, using the army they built out of minority groups, without whom, a Democrat Party would not even exist today.

Democrats operating under the Democratic Socialists of America groups, the Black Caucus and Progressive Caucus, led by the Obama administration, have seized total control of the Democrat Party, the White House, the federal legislature and the federal judiciary.

When the group was asked if Democratic Socialism was in competition with the Democrat Party, they responded as follows;

No, we are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The process and structure of American elections seriously hurts third party efforts. Winner-take-all elections instead of proportional representation, rigorous party qualification requirements that vary from state to state, a presidential instead of a parliamentary system, and the two-party monopoly on political power have doomed third party efforts. We hope that at some point in the future, in coalition with our allies, an alternative national party will be viable. For now, we will continue to support progressives who have a real chance at winning elections, which usually means left-wing Democrats.

The Progressive Caucus was formed by proud socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont and the Black Caucus was formed by proud communist John Conyers of Michigan.

Democrats, funded largely by the international socialist labor movement for decades, destroyed American manufacturing forcing almost all private sector manufacturing jobs off-shore and leaving over sixty-percent of union workers employed in government jobs.

Now that the federal and state budget well has run dry, and the private sector is no longer able to carry the unsustainable weight of government employment, Democrats are calling for all-out war against American taxpayers in a final hour effort to save the labor unions that make the Democrat Party possible.

Over the last five years, since Democrats regained control of the U.S. federal purse strings in 2006, the national debt has sky-rocketed from 64% of GDP to more than 100% of GDP. Black unemployment has doubled to an all-time high and union employment is now almost 100% dependent upon government jobs or government contracts.

Meanwhile, we have only 25% of the nation’s private sector workers paying for an unsustainable level of government, both at the state and federal level. There is no choice but to bust the labor unions that now survive on taxpayer-funded government employment alone, and the grip they hold on Washington DC. The situation is economically unsustainable and Democrats know it. The only nations turning the corner on their economic woes are the nations facing this fact.

But without labor unions, there will be no Democrat Party today. So, Democrats are publicly calling for all-out war in the streets in an effort to save the 12% of American workers who wear the union label and fund the Democrat Party.

Are American taxpayers ready for more than café latte rallies and T-Shirt sales at Tea Party conventions that few people can afford to attend anymore? Are they ready for war?

Whether they are ready or not, war is coming to America because the political left will bring class and race war to every street in America very shortly. As Democrats have ground the American economy to a halt, they rally their civilian troops to violence in the streets and they make no apologies for it.

Democratic Socialist messiah Barack Obama is fading fast. His current ratings make Jimmy Carter look both smart and popular. Obama & Co. are following European nations right into the economic toilet, putting the labor movement ahead of American interests in treasonous fashion. But they are not stopping here…

On September 17th, Constitution Day, leftists across the country are planning a “Day of Rage” against free-market capitalism in the streets of New York.

On October 6th, American leftists plan an “Egypt style occupation of Washington DC” aimed at forcing every American taxpayer to accept their international socialist demands or pay the consequences.

Although Obama’s Department of Homeland Security has pre-labeled every American citizen who speaks out in defense of the U.S. Constitution or morality as a “potential domestic terrorist,” it is the Democratic Left who is actually preparing to take their war to the streets of America.

Are Americans ready to defend their way of life at all cost?

They won’t just face Black Panthers and radical labor union thugs in the streets. Over the last few years, Democrats have also worked to increase anti-American sentiments among the radical Muslim community and the illegal immigrant community in America.

Illegal immigrants think they are right to demand full citizenship rights in America, including full voting rights before the 2012 election. Muslims are convinced that they have a right to take over American communities and force Sharia Law in any area they can gain numeric control over, as the Obama administration provides opportunity and cover.

If you think Obama’s Justice Department is going to take any action against any of these anti-American acts, think again. Eric Holder’s department is fully behind this treasonous agenda.

If you think the American press is going to shine a light on any of this, think again. The American press, like American academia, has been in the international socialist bag for decades now. They won’t report on any of this until they are reporting the body bag count in cities across America.

Are Americans really ready to defend the U.S. Constitution and way of life? I see no evidence that they are.

The Tea Party is the most active resistance in America today and they are still busy playing politics, trying to gain a seat at the table of anti-American corruption instead of upsetting the table of political corruption.

Despite years of efforts to educate the masses in America, most Americans remain out of touch with reality, including most in the Tea Party movement, who still think they can stop this massive international movement to destroy America by electing a few more Republicans in 2012.

Let there be no mistake – Americans are already at war for the future of freedom and liberty in America – they just don’t know it yet. And, the enemy is not only within—it is on both sides of the political aisle.

If you don’t believe me, read this Federal Report on Global Governance originated during the Clinton years, but left intact throughout the Bush years.

Whether Americans want war or not, it is coming. The international left has been preparing for this war on Americans for decades and they can smell total victory in the air now. Even the most patriotic American is likely to vote for socialism as opposed to total economic collapse and chaos today.

How many Americans are awake, aware and prepared to defend the American way of life?

Nobody knows the answer to this question and most of the time—we have no idea who is really ready to fight until the fight begins. But any serious resistance is likely to come from the community of more than “twenty-five million military veterans, who are coming together with very deep concerns about the true state of our union.

I can only pray that we still have enough true Americans left to defend freedom, because if freedom does not exist in America, it won’t exist anywhere on earth.

If you are not ready for what’s coming, you had better get ready, because it’s coming, whether you are ready or not. And it’s coming very soon! The left will not take no for an answer. The left has us between a rock and a hard place and there is no painless way out of this corner.

Evil unchallenged will prevail every time. Let no evil go unchallenged from this moment forward. We cannot pass this mess on to our children.

What the Left Really Think


I got just got back from a wonderful service at church tonight filled with singing, prayer, and so much appreciation for all that God has given us and the hope He gives us. Then I saw this despicable video from a Portland TEA Party rally on Twitter (via TheBlaze) and my heart was sad. What has become of the people of our nation?

I will not repeat here what is said in the video. You must see for yourself. It is very disturbing.

“We are God’s people, saved by God’s power, for God’s purpose” was the message tonight at my church. I pray for all that have gone astray from Him. May God have mercy on these people’s souls and lead them to the right purpose.


Left Plans Waves of Militant Pro-Union Protests

Last Saturday, a reported 10,000 people marched through downtown Los Angeles to demonstrate their “solidarity” with public employee union workers in Wisconsin. Darsha Philips of ABC7News reports on March 26, 2011:

Wisconsin passed a law stripping public employee unions of collective bargaining rights and local protesters say it could happen in Southern California. Union members and their allies gathered at the Los Angeles Convention Center and marched onward to Pershing Square in hopes of sending out a message that collective bargaining rights cannot be taken away from unions.

A controversial bill in Wisconsin has pitted Democrats and Republicans against each other, limiting collective bargaining rights of government employees. The bill was signed into law by Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Legislators and governors in several other states are seeking to adopt similar laws, citing budget problems.

Anti-government budget cuts protesters, London, March 26, 2011

Given what happened in London on Saturday, where an estimated 400,000 protested against government budget cuts and attacked police with homemade  ammonia-filled light-bulbs, as our writer Candance warned, we can expect more such protests here in America in the days, weeks, and months to come.

In fact, even before Governor Scott Walker’s battle with public unions in Wisconsin, the Left in America already had drawn plans for successive waves of massive militant protests. As Kyle Olson of BigGovernment alerted us on January 13, 2011, “Radicals in Planning Stages of Massive ‘Militant’ U.S. Protests“:

The Huffington Post reported last year about college students shutting down major freeways in California. In Wisconsin, protesters threw “punches and ice chunks” at police after the students were refused entry into an administration building in Madison. Now, plans are being made for a month of similar actions this year, kicking off March 2nd.

Some activists have complained that unions are not currently leading the charge because they’ve become too “corporatist.” But they believe once they make their move, unions will move to “co-opt” the movement.

“Student strikes” will occur in March to fight budget cuts and increased fees for students. What’s happening in Europe is about to be emulated in America, friends. Radicals know this is one of their last opportunities to keep the gravy grain running on time. But reality, courtesy of fed up taxpayers, may interrupt their plans.

One of the movement’s leaders, Los Angeles high school teacher Omar Hussein, recruited “student militants” to support the March 4th protests in 2010. He’s a leader again this time around, according to sources within the movement.

The month of “actions” will be capped off with a global action stemming from a huge union/socialist rally in London March 26th. As many as one million people will show their solidarity with those “in the firing line of the government’s cuts,” according to a statement posted on a public employee union website.

The pro-big government radicals are in the planning stages of something similar in the United States. One radical from Arizona pledged that the actions will be “very militant” because what they’ve done so far hasn’t worked and “there are no other options now.”

Radicals who fantasize about Che Guevara’s revolution, the Soviet States of America and the good ole days of Chairman Mao will soon be making their move. They’ll be doing their best to seize the current “crisis” and push their socialist agenda.

Will they get anywhere?  The big government agenda certainly had its wings clipped in the November election. But that doesn’t mean violence, upheaval and chaos can be stopped. And we shouldn’t kid ourselves that it’s simply a small band of “student militants” that break a few windows and celebrate at the local (fair trade) coffee house. When this action occurs, SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, AFT, NAACP and others will be right behind them to push the socialist agenda forward.

This is the moment to stand up to them, reject their agenda and defend a free and capitalist America.
