Over half a million jobs in July?!

That damn Biden! I’m so angry!


Chips bill, inflation reduction bill, green energy bill, veterans health care, and now this??? Brandon and his party are gaining some momentum. And right before the midterms? Shucks!

This Congress and president have actually been pretty damn productive. Much better than passing a tax cut bill and issuing out a Muslim ban via executive order.

I’m not tired from all of this winning!

Analysts overall expected the report to find about 258,000 new jobs created, but it was more than double that, with 528,000 new jobs. Unemployment dropped slightly to 3.5%, which is far below the 5% mark economists used to use as a marker of “full employment.”

Economists cheered the results, with even those often more pessimistic finding the jobs report excellent news. Overall, many made clear there is no recession, and predicted inflation will come under control as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, and as the price of gas has dropped tremendously, with some stations now selling at under $3.00 a gallon.

Meanwhile, Fox News decided to use the White House’s prediction that the jobs numbers would not be great against them.

The Daily Beast’s media reporter Justin Baragona posted a screenshot of Fox News’s chyron that blasts the White House for not getting the estimate right. A casual observer, say, in an airport, would likely assume the jobs report was bad and blame the Biden administration.

It reads: “WH Misses Forecast on Lower July Jobs Growth.”


Media Matters’ Eric Kleefeld notes how Fox News Business’s Larry Kudlow, a former Trump top advisor, and former Trump advisor Kevin Hassett both predicted the jobs number would come in exactly the same as what the Biden White House predicted, and were preparing since Thursday for bad news: Public Notice’s Aaron Rupar says Fox News is suggesting the jobs report is too good:

Attorney Brad Moss, a frequent social media commenter, observed: “Fox News is desperately trying to spin this blockbuster jobs report against Biden. If Trump was in office, they’d be running celebration videos complete with champagne.”

Just after 8:30 AM ET when the report was released “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade immediately mocked President Joe Biden as they shared the numbers.

Fox News Business’ Charles Payne was on set to discuss the report. Looking for the negative spin he announced that the jobs number was the best since March, adding the numbers had “been trending lower since March sequentially.”

Begrudgingly admitting “it’s a really good number,” he pivoted to “participation” in the workforce. he called it “amazing that we have not gotten back up to the same level of participation” since before COVID.

But as CNBC reported: “private sector payrolls are now higher than the February 2020 level, just before the pandemic declaration.”

Biden has picked up a little momentum recently on his policy agenda. Add to that inflation is starting to ease, gas prices are falling, employment is still extremely strong and you might have to start worrying about the mid-terms if you're a MAGA turd.

None of those things is even what Republicans should be most worried about when it comes to the mid-terms. The thing that should worry them is the reaction Americans are having to the now seemingly real possibility that the Republican party wants to turn the U.S. into Gilead after the Row V Wade decision. Many states have horrific anti-abortion laws that provide no exception for the life and/or health of the mother, or for rape, incest or the viability of the fetus. We've already seen a small preview of the horrors this lack of compassion will have on women and the people who love them. Then a bunch of idiotic Republicans have doubled down, suggesting that birth control should be banned, and that gay marriage should be abolished. Most Americans don't want to live in a theocratic nightmare.

Let's hope they vote.

Yeah, let’s hope stuff like this scares the living bejesus out of enough Americans come November.


Calling for Christian nationalists to “unite forces”, Orbán told CPAC: “Victory will never be found by taking the path of least resistance. We must take back the institutions in Washington and in Brussels. We must find friends and allies in one another. We must coordinate the movements of our troops because we face the same challenge.”

He noted that US midterm elections will be later this year followed by the presidential contest and European parliamentary elections in 2024. “These two locations will define the two fronts in the battle being fought for western civilisation. Today, we hold neither of them. Yet we need both.”

Hey, maybe if Viktor Orban and the MAGA Republicans succeed, the 2024 Republican convention can look like this. At least, this seems to be what they want, for some bizarre reason, having to do with they lost their effin minds:

The thing Republicans should be most worried about when it comes to the mid-terms is how gullible voters are on the political left. There is no anti-abortion law in any US state that provides no exception for the life of the mother. I would bet if you polled leftists, the majority would believe there was such a law in at least one state. I don't consider Gameface to be unintelligent and he believes it.

There is no such law, not even in Idaho. If you think there is then you are a dupe who has fallen for propaganda. If you think there is such a law in any US state then it is you who Republicans should be most worried about when it comes to the mid-terms because a voter motivated by a fiction counts just as much as a voter who has all the information.

Have you heard about anyone on the right wanting to ban contraceptives?

So you found someone with a hot take. I've heard about a woman who eats fiberglass insulation but that wouldn't justify a blanket condemnation of women because they eat fiberglass insulation and that is effectively what you are trying to do.
