  • CNN on WH Equal Pay Push: 'A Textbook Case … Of Do As I Say, Not As I Do'

    9:41 AM, Apr 8, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER

    CNN's John King called the White House's push for equal pay "a textbook case ... of do as I say, not as I do."

    "It's better than the national average," King said mocking White House press secretary Jay Carney. "I guess the coach would say, is that the best you got?"

    keep, if Dickw's post is a complete lie, you would be swallowing it hook, line and sinker. That's what you have been doing every time The Liar and Chief speaks. You not only believe him you defend his lies so I guess the bigger the lie the more you defend it.

    If Dickw is lying you, by your past posts, should love it.

    Plus you're the biggest loony left hypocrite on this board and that's saying a lot. When it comes to hypocrisy, you put elk and flop to shame

  • As Obama Spotlights Gender Gap in Wages, His Own Payroll Draws Scrutiny

    main story

    NYT Now

    This story is included with an NYT Now subscription.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama on Tuesday will call attention to what he has said is an “embarrassment” in America: the fact that women make, on average, only 77 cents for every dollar that a man earns.

    But critics of the administration are eager to turn the tables and note that Mr. Obama’s White House fares only slightly better. A study released in January showed that female White House staff members make on average 88 cents for every dollar a male staff member earns.

    The dueling statistics reveal the political sensitivities around a set of gender-related issues that could be critical in the midterm elections this fall. Those include pay equity, family leave, preschool and child care.

    Mr. Obama and his Democratic allies are trying to portray Republicans as insensitive to the concerns of women, in the hopes of capitalizing on the kind of lopsided female support that helped Mr. Obama win the White House in 2008 and 2012. On Tuesday, Mr. Obama is to sign an executive order barring federal contractors from penalizing employees who discuss their compensation.

    This week, Democrats in the Senate are to begin considering the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would add new regulations on how private companies pay their employees. Democratic lawmakers are seeking to overcome an expected Republican filibuster of the bill, which faces stiff opposition in the Republican-controlled House.

    “The more light you can shine on wages, the better,” said Heidi Hartmann, the president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. “Who knows how much stronger enforcement it will lead to. But I think the publicity — the fact that people will hear about it and know about it — will help.”

    Even as Mr. Obama seeks to make an issue of the gender gap in compensation across the country, however, his own hiring is facing some scrutiny. The recent study, by the conservative American Enterprise Institute, showed that the median annual salary for women in the White House last year was $65,000, while the median annual salary for men was $73,729. The study was based on White House salary data.

    The pay in the White House most likely mirrors the situation across the federal government, Ms. Hartmann said. “Women still tend to have lower pay grades than men do, because the men, on average, have more years of experience.”

    Jay Carney, the president’s press secretary, said the statistics for White House staff members reflect the fact that women fill more lower-level positions than men. But he said that women and men in the same positions at the White House are paid the same, and that many of the women hold senior positions.

    “Men and women in equivalent roles here earn equivalent salaries,” Mr. Carney said. “Some of the most senior positions in the White House are filled by women, including national security adviser, homeland security adviser, White House counsel, communications director, senior adviser, deputy chief of staff.”

    He said that the 88-cent statistic was misleading because it aggregates the salaries of White House staff members at all levels, including the lowest levels, where women outnumber men.

    Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, said the 77-cent statistic that Mr. Obama has often cited was misleading for the same reason, because it aggregates salaries for the American workforce. “The wage gap is real, but the White House does itself a disservice — and embarrasses itself in the process — by grasping for misleading statistics that don’t tell the whole story,” Mr. Buck said.

    At that time Hillary publically stated she believed that marriage was between one man and one woman. You won't see the loons asking her not to run for president or The Dear Leader and his moron Veep to step down. In 2008 they publically stated that marriage was between man and woman.

  • IRS agents’ testimony: NO progressive groups were targeted by IRS

    Patrick Howley
    Daily Caller
    11:19 AM 04/07/2014

    IRS agents testified before Congress that the agency’s political targeting did not apply to progressive groups as Democrats and the media have claimed, according to a bombshell new staff report prepared by the House Oversight Committee chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa.

    IRS agents testified before Oversight that ACORN groups were scrutinized because the agency thought they were old organizations applying as new ones. Emerge America was scrutinized for potential “improper private benefit.” No evidence exists that the IRS requested additional information from any Occupy Wall Street group.

    “Only seven applications in the IRS backlog contained the word ‘progressive,’ all of which were then approved by the IRS, while Tea Party groups received unprecedented review and experienced years-long delays. While some liberal-oriented groups were singled out for scrutiny, evidence shows it was due to non-political reasons,” according to the Oversight staff report, which was obtained by The Daily Caller.

    “[T]he Administration and congressional Democrats have seized upon the notion that the IRS’s targeting was not just limited to conservative applicants,” the report states. “These Democratic claims are flat-out wrong and have no basis in any thorough examination of the facts. Yet, the Administration’s chief defenders continue to make these assertions in a concerted effort to deflect and distract from the truth about the IRS’s targeting of tax-exempt applicants.”

    “[T]here is simply no evidence that any liberal or progressive group received enhanced scrutiny because its application reflected the organization’s political views,” the report stated.

    Obama looks to close wage gap while paying female staffers less than men

    3:43 PM 04/06/2014

    President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.

    The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

    On Tuesday — the day advocates have labelled “Equal Pay Day” to symbolize the amount of time women have to work to make as much as men did the year before — Obama will sign the executive orders at the White House, according to an AP report.

    “From making the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act the first bill he signed into law to these actions, the President has proven himself to be a true champion for women in the workplace,” Deborah J. Vagins, ACLU senior legislative counsel and co-chair of the National Paycheck Fairness Coalition, said in a statement. “Congress still needs to do its part and pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, but we’re one step closer to achieving pay equity thanks to this White House.”

    Despite advocates’ cheers about paycheck equity, the Obama White House has paid women less than men for years.

    According to a Daily Caller analysis of “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,” the most recent available data on White House pay, the White House paid women an estimated 11.8 percent less than men in 2013.

    The year prior White House paid women 13 percent less than men — and in 2011, according to the Free Beacon, women were paid 18 percent less.

    To be sure, all the analysed years were better than what the federal government says is the current wage gap: 23 percent.

  • Bill Maher: "There Is A Gay Mafia -- If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked"

    In the online-only "Overtime" portion of his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and did not react in a way that you would think. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 donation to support a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California.

    "Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair," guest panelist fmr. Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) said.

    "Good point," Maher responded.

    "I think there is a gay mafia," Maher said. "I think if you cross them, you do get whacked."

    Transcript below.

    MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.

    The Mozilla -- which I'm wearing right now, by the way. I didn't know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but -- it's Firefix, right? It's the browser.

    So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.

    FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it's come back to haunt him.

    CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair.

    MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.

  • The problem with the loons is they only think Republicans make stupid mistakes but their guys like The Liar in Chief can do no wrong.

    If the loons think the Republican who went to the wrong committee meeting was funny, they should really like these quotes. If they think a boneheaded mistake is funny then this gal should do stand up.

    This just reinforces what I have said all along. The loons are such dishonest hypocrites! And they are proud of it.
