    DONALD TRUMP AT CPAC 2014: WE CAN SOLVE ALL OUR PROBLEMS BY GETTING FILTHY RICH

    DONALD TRUMP AT CPAC 2014: WE CAN SOLVE ALL OUR PROBLEMS BY GETTING FILTHY RICH

    There are various theories about why Donald Trump has become a CPAC fixture. I think he just plain loves it there. He enjoys getting up there on the stage and machine-gunning his thoughts at the audience. He made a point of showing that he didn’t need a teleprompter or notes. He might not have needed anything except the complimentary copy of USA Today left in his hotel room that morning.

    Trump’s style lacks the intense focus of the more carefully prepared orations, and that’s what makes him fun. The sensation is best captured with a string of topics and quick hits, like so:

    THE DEFICIT: I have to tell you that our country is in serious, serious trouble. We owe $17 trillion in debt. No one even heard the expression “trillion” a few years ago.

    CHINA: They just devalued their currency – what they’re really doing is saying, we’re really ripping you big league, no one’s ever done it better than us, but we’re going to do it again. Our leadership is so pathetic that they’re doing it again. They’re smart. They don’t respect stupid people.

    PUTIN AND UKRAINE: You look at what he’s doing with President Obama, he’s toying with him. When he goes in and takes Crimea, he’s taking the heart and soul, because that’s where all the money is… that’s the area with the wealth. That means the rest of Ukraine will fall, and it will fall fairly quickly.

    IRAQ: Iran has already taken over, essentially, Iraq. It’s amazing. When we went over there, I assumed we were taking the oil… to the victor belongs the spoils. You know who’s taking the oil now? Iran.

    UNEMPLOYMENT:
    Official unemployment of 6-7 percent is probably 21-22 percent in real numbers. If you stop looking for a job, they consider you employed. [Editorial note: that might be the best one-sentence summary of the problem with our headline unemployment statistic I've ever heard.]

    OBAMA’S JOB APPROVAL RATINGS: We’re getting into Jimmy Carter territory. I lived in that time. It was not a good time.

    OBAMACARE: We either have laws, or we don’t.

    THE CPAC AUDIENCE: The people in this room are people who want to see this country be great again.

    It should be noted that, even though he beats the stuffing out of China during every speech, Trump says the Chinese bankers who rent office space from him consider him a fantastic landlord.

    Trump’s grand solution to all of America’s problems is to get so filthy, stinking rich that they don’t matter any more. ”I want to make this country so strong, so rich, so powerful – we have so much energy, so much money under out feet, we don’t have to take away people’s Social Security and Medicare,” he said. ”The way you solve all of these problems is tremendous wealth, tremendous job creation, strengthen our military… make America strong again, make America great again, we have such unbelievable potential, we have to use it.”

    He makes it sound so easy. I don’t think it’s possible to solve the $100 trillion Social Security and Medicare liability problem without developing a process to turn grapes into diamonds, but he’s got a point that prosperous nations under a light tax burden have a way of generating enough revenue to deal with problems that look intractable when they’re broke. Wealth can be expressed in terms of options – the wealthy individual or nation has many choices, while the impoverished or indebted have few.

    We’re certainly not doing ourselves any favors by making the nation less wealthy than it could be, or dealing with other world powers from a position of self-imposed weakness. Is there enough suppressed and mis-managed productivity in the American economy to grow our way out of the grinding social and fiscal problems of the past half-decade? It would be great to put ourselves to the test and find out for sure.

    Unemployment Rate Climbs in February “Unexpectedly” to 6.7%

    Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, March 7, 2014, 8:24 AM

    The jobs numbers for February are out and the unemployment rate rose “unexpectedly” to 6.7%.
    Business Insider reported:
    The February jobs report for the US is out.
    The Bureau of Labor Statistics says 175,000 workers were added to nonfarm payrolls in December, well above Wall Street’s consensus estimate of 149,000.
    162,000 of those hires were to private payrolls, above expectations for a 145,000 rise in the ranks of private-sector workers.
    The unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 6.7% from 6.6%. Labor force participation was unchanged at 63.0%.
    610,000 were unable to work due to inclement weather in February, above the historical February average of 317,000.
    Well over half the total job gains in February were in industries that pay the least.

    And more bad news…

    Long-term unemployment rises

    03/07/14 08:50 AM—Updated 03/07/14 02:49 PM
    By Suzy Khimm

    The U.S. economy added 175,000 new jobs in February, beating expectations that bad winter weather would significantly depress job growth. But the ranks of the long-term unemployed also grew last month, helping to nudge the unemployment up from 6.6% to 6.7%.

    Close video

    Morning Joe, 3/7/14, 9:28 AM ET

    Report: 175,000 jobs added in February

    CNBC’s Sara Eisen talks The February jobs report and the 6.7% unemployment rate. The Morning Joe panel then joins the discussion.
    After many months of gradual decline, the number of long-term unemployed swelled by 203,000 in February, totaling 3.8 million. The change has come as Congress has let federal unemployment benefits expire, cutting off more than 1.7 million Americans who have been looking for work for more than 26 weeks. The silver lining is that those the government counts as being unemployed are actively seeking work. That’s why economists may actually be heartened that the unemployment rate increased slightly in February.
    The bigger concern is that the long-term unemployed will be so discouraged that they’ll stop looking for work entirely, dropping out of the labor force—a concern that Democrats have voiced in their push to revive unemployment benefits. The labor force participation rate was unchanged in February, at 63%, but it remains at a historic low.
    The unemployment insurance debate has returned to the Senate yet again this week, but the primary obstacle remains unchanged. Republicans don’t want to extend aid without paying for it, and they’ve rejected the Democrats’ payfors out of hand, including Sen. Jack Reed’s latest offer for a six-month extension offset by savings from the recently passed farm bill. But February’s concerning numbers about the long-term unemployed could add new urgency to the debate.

    February Jobs Report: U.S. Creates 175,000 Jobs, Unemployment Rate At 6.7%

    Posted: 03/07/2014 8:31 am EST Updated: 03/07/2014 8:59 am EST

    The U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in February, as the unemployment rate ticked up to 6.7 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.
    More from the Associated Press:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. hiring improved in February from the previous two months despite a blast of wintry weather, likely renewing hopes that growth will accelerate this year.
    The Labor Department said Friday that employers added 175,000 jobs last month, up from just 129,000 in January, which was revised up from 113,000. December's gain was also revised higher.
    The unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent from a five-year low 6.6 percent. More Americans started looking for work but didn't find jobs. That's still an encouraging sign because more job hunters suggest that people were more optimistic about their prospects.
    The figures were a welcome surprise after recent economic reports showed that harsh weather had closed factories, lowered auto sales, and caused existing-home sales to plummet.
    "Over the past three months, payrolls growth has averaged 130,000, which is pretty respectable given the widespread weather disruptions," tweeted University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers.

    The low temperatures and snow storms that hit the eastern half of the country in February might still have held back hiring. The number of Americans who said weather forced them to work part time rather than full time reached the highest level for February in the 36 years that the government has tracked the figure. The average work week fell.
    Some recent reports hint that the economy will accelerate as the weather warms. The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits fell last week and is at about the same level as before the Great Recession.
    Applications essentially reflect layoffs. The decline suggests that companies are confident about future growth, because layoffs would rise if employers expected business to weaken. Instead, businesses advertised more jobs online last month, according to the Conference Board. Online job ads rose 268,100 in February to 5.19 million.
    Still, other factors are weighing on the economy. Auto makers and other manufacturers build up big stockpiles of goods in the second half of last year. That means they are likely producing fewer goods this year and is probably one reason factory orders are down.
    Most economists forecast the economy will grow at a 2 percent annual pace or less in the first three months of the year, down from a 2.4 percent pace in the final three months of 2013. But they expect growth to accelerate in the spring and summer to roughly a 3 percent pace.
