Shouldn't we be asking ourselves, "Why are they doing this?"

Employer mandate for Obamacare delayed for ANOTHER year

Just a few days ago, it seemed like every major Democrat who could find a microphone were all saying the same thing: "Isn't it great if you don't have a job? I mean it's like great, you know? Who wants to be locked into a job anyway? Don't you want to be free to pursue your dreams? You can be free to write poetry, or paint, or hey! you could skip the takeout and make an actual homecooked meal!"

Some of President Obama's aides even coined a clever new term for those who are still employed -- joblock. It's even used in a derisive manner as in, "Who wants joblock anyway?"

If "joblock" is such a bad thing, then why are all those aides still showing up?

Then, on Friday, the new jobs numbers came out. Several posts at ZeroHedge about the data quickly followed. One note quickly bubbled to the surface: the unemployment rate dipped from 6.7% to 6.6%.

Let's be clear about this dip: People were removed from the unemployment rolls NOT because they found a job, but because they have gone past the time allotted to find a job.

Do you get this?

The dip in the unemployment rate is NOT because a whole bunch of jobs were added to the economy, thus a whole bunch of unemployed people can now go back to being "joblocked"; NO, the dip is because if someone is unemployed, he or she is given X number of weeks to find a job and become "joblocked" again -- if he or she doesn't find a job, they are removed from the rolls and no longer counted as unemployed even if they are EXACTLY that -- unemployed.

Are you seeing what is happening here?

The Obama administration and its allies in Congress are trying to get in front of something here, and they are trying to do it fast, and President Obama's unexpected announcement that he is going to delay the employer mandate for another year seems to really emphasize that something ugly is going on behind the scenes -- something that is escalating so rapidly that they are running in front, offering explanations and "good spin" in an effort to look as if they are in control.

What could it be?

My guess? The unemployment numbers are skyrocketing into levels that are no longer manageable because they are so ugly.

When you add in the trillion-dollar farm bill that has allocated 80 percent (which means BILLIONS of dollars) to food stamps, there seems to be a real problem brewing for this administration.

And isn't it worth noting that the delay of the employer mandate includes a caveat from President Obama THAT IS NOT IN THE ORIGINAL BILL/LAW? The caveat is that employers can have the year reprieve AS LONG AS THEY DON'T LAY OFF ANY EMPLOYEES AND BLAME OBAMACARE.

Do you realize how stunning this is?

Yes, Congress makes laws all the time regulating businesses, especially where hiring and firing is concerned. But those are LAWS worked with input generally from both parties to make sure individuals are not discriminated against. Sometimes those laws work, sometimes they don't.

But President Obama's caveat is this: DON'T RETALIATE AGAINST MY LAW. A BUSINESS OWNER CANNOT FINANCIALLY PROTECT HIMSELF AGAINST MY LAW. HE HAS TO PAY UP WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT.  This caveat was NOT something negotiated by both parties in Congress as a bill and then signed into law by President Obama -- it is something HE decided on his own.

No wonder the Wall Street Journal editorial board explains: " . . . that terming the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” makes sense because “the law increasingly means whatever President Obama says it does on any given day.”

"Bam!" as we used to say back in the day.

Obama's IRS will get to decide whether the business owner's decision to layoff or fire employees is truly based on retaliation against Obamacare or not.

Yes, the SAME IRS that targeted Tea Party and conservative groups for forming to oppose President Obama's fiscal policies will now decide the "TRUE MOTIVES" of business owners across this nation.

(FLASHBACK: IRS planned secret new rules to justify targeting tea party groups two years ago, reveals bombshell email)

Firms must swear ObamaCare not a factor in firings

So if a car dealership lays off employees and it just so happens that the car dealership owner contributes to Republican candidates, what are the odds that Obama's IRS WON'T rubber-stamp his decision as acceptable?

Yeah, what I thought, too.

John Kerry has come against Israel by suggesting that there is little the U.S. could do if European boycotts against Israel should take place because Israel isn't willing to put the Jordan (rift) Valley on the table as VERY negotiable when it comes to the Obama-Kerry ideas of which particular tracts of Israeli land should be given to the Palestinians in the name of peace. After all, why the hesitation? Didn't Gaza work out pretty well -- like . . . there aren't rockets EVERY day, are there?

Kerry's has appeared to insinuate that "economic devastation" (as Caroline Glick characterized it in her opinion piece on Kerry's remarks) might, unfortunately, happen if Israel doesn't get their act together, and quick!

Let's put up a timeline:

January 30, Caroline Glick notes the Obama administration has "added the threat of Israeli economic devastation to its list of plagues that will befall the Jewish state if we don't give up our national heartland to the PLO."

February 1, Kerry is accused of encouraging boycotts against Israel if it doesn't put the Jordan Valley in Palestinian hands.

February 2, a group of rabbis delivered a letter to Kerry indicating Kerry faced "divine retribution" if he persisted in his efforts to divide Israel.

February 2, John Kerry mocked in video

What is one of the curses of Deuteronomy 28? Wilkerson says that one of the signs that a nation is under judgment is that her foreign policy is in disarray -- that nation will look foolish and incompetent.

And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee. --Deut. 28:37

This verse indicates that a nation under judgment is talked about by other nations. Fingers are pointed and behavior is whispered about and gossiped about and laughed at. Questions are asked if good judgment is being used or good decorum or evident wisdom.

This video does EXACTLY that -- makes John Kerry look foolish, and he is laughed at!

February 4, the CBO released a report that Obamacare will result in over 2-million jobs lost over the next few years because (in essence) the more an employee makes, the more his or her healthcare will cost, whereas less pay, less the employee has to pay in and will be more likely to qualify for subsidies (i.e. other taxpayers picking up the tab).

Watch Out for Obamacare's Subsidy Cliff: Earn $1 More in Wages, and You Could Pay $20,000 More for Insurance

February 4, the White House IMMEDIATELY protests the CBO report, insisting that it isn't truly 2-million jobs LOST, but actually people's CHOICE to whether they want to work more and yes, pay more for their healthcare, or work less and yes, get more in subsidies, BUT this is offering escape from JOBLOCK.

February 7, thousands more removed from unemployment rolls because they could not find "joblock." ZeroHedge lets us know that stocks did not like what they saw.

and this, also on 2/7: Food Prices Set to Soar Due to California Drought

Why? California has been the number one food and agricultural producer in the United States for more than 50 consecutive years.

There is probably more that will come to light in the next few days. As I asked above: if this isn't the Obama administration trying to get out in front of something, then what is it? If this isn't economic devastation unfolding, what is?
