Abortion Activists To Give Hillary Clinton an Award For Losing the Election

Hillary's Wonder Woman Supports Killing Babies
 and Associated with Sexual Predators & Rapists
Corrine Weaver: There’s no such thing as a participation trophy for the left. So they have to make something up.

The Women’s Media Center (WMC), founded by lefties Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, created an award this year for the sole purpose of having something to give to Hillary Clinton: the Wonder Woman Award. The press release reads like a remnant of the failed Clinton campaign of 2016: “The Women’s Media Center is presenting its first—and only—WMC Wonder Woman Award to Clinton as she is a hero to millions in the United States and around the globe for her extraordinary accomplishments and public service.”

The announcement came two days after The Hill broke a major story about a Clinton Russian connection. The story revealed that the FBI “had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.” In addition, an eyewitness account admitted that Russian nuclear officials sent millions of dollars to the U.S. to be given to the Clinton Foundation.

But that won’t stand in the way of the left-wing celebration. On October 26, Hillary Clinton will stand with the rest of the WMC honorees, which include actresses Jane Fonda and Ashley Judd.

. . . Steinem, a long time Hillary supporter, wrote in the announcement, “Hillary Clinton’s actions have inspired and protected women and men on every continent. She has battled negative forces and helped to maintain a fragile peace with her negotiating skill on behalf of this country and peace-seekers everywhere. She has handled all this with grace, grit, determination, integrity, humor, and fortitude while remaining a steadfast feminist, advocate, activist, sister and tireless leader in the revolution. With this award, the Women’s Media Center declares Hillary Clinton our Wonder Woman.”

Does maintaining a fragile peace include allegedly making back-door deals with Russia over uranium? Just wondering.

Who knows how Harvey Weinstein victim Ashley Judd must feel about being honored with her “nasty woman” idol Clinton, especially in the wake of the news that the Clinton Foundation will not return the $250,000 in donations made by the sexual predator. But all this will be ignored, at least in Steinem’s narrative about the “tireless leader in the revolution.” . . . Read More

Alveda King: “Abortion Violates the Civil Rights of Unborn Children”

by Corrine Weaver, Life News: The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said today that she opposes abortion and believes it violates the civil rights of unborn children.

Alveda King is also taking the side of the Trump Administration in a battle with pro-abortion attorneys who are seeking to force the administration to facilitate an illegal immigrants abortion.

Yesterday, an appeals court has stopped a judge’s order issued the day before forcing the Trump Administration to facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant.

As LifeNews reported yesterday, a federal judge nominated by Barack Obama ordered the Trump Administration to allow an undocumented teenage girl in the state of Texas to have an abortion that could be funded partly at taxpayer expense. Judge Tanya Chutkan had ruled that the government must allow Jane Doe to get an abortion by Saturday to end the life of her 15-week-old unborn baby.

Yesterday, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington stayed Wednesday’s ruling in order to hold a hearing today on the merits of the case.

King says the government is right to protect the life of both mother and child.

“On October 19, 2017, a Judge orders the government to facilitate an abortion for a seventeen-year old illegal immigrant known as the “new Jane Roe;” with the ACLU representing the young mother. The Justice Department is seeking injunction to save life of baby. The shelter where the mother is housed has contacted a local pregnancy center and the grandmother of the baby to seek assistance for the mother and unborn child,” King explained.

The civil rights leader added: “Abortion is a civil wrong that violates the civil and human rights of unborn children; where is the lawyer for the baby?”

“In this case the office of the US Attorney General argues that the mother does not have a constitutional right to appeal to the US government for an elective abortion on demand as an illegal immigrant unless there is a medical emergency,” King said.

King said people need to remember the racial motivation behind the abortion industry that targets blacks and Latinos.

She explained: “Those in favor of the young mother having the abortion are proponents of an abortion agenda initiated by Margaret Sanger, a 20th century racist eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood and is considered by some to be America’s “Mother of Abortion.” Sanger championed eugenics and racism in her day, going so far as be an advisor to the Klu-Klux-Klan, and to birth a Eugenics Movement which has resulted in the genocide of millions of blacks and other “undesirables.”

“In the 20th century we turned to Nonviolence as a key to this process. These principles of nonviolent conflict resolution and reconciliation are still helpful today: I learned these principles from my Uncle MLK, my father AD King, and grandfather Daddy King,” she concluded.

Arkansas Judge Abuses Power, Ignores Life of Unborn Child in Murder Case

On Wednesday Pulaski County Arkansas Circuit Judge Herb Wright acquitted a North Little Rock man of murdering an unborn child. In 2015, Quenton King of North Little Rock allegedly shot his mistress who was eight months pregnant, killing both her and her unborn child. The judge acquitted King of murdering the unborn baby, because, he said, prosecutors failed to demonstrate the child was alive at the time.

Family Council President Jerry Cox released a statement, saying, “This is ludicrous. No one should have to prove a person was alive prior to being murdered. We know from court testimony that the woman was eight months pregnant when she was shot. Children born prematurely at eight months routinely go on to live healthy lives. Arkansas law says a person can be charged with murder for causing the death of an unborn child. Judge Wright’s decision in this case ignores Arkansas’ homicide laws, and it ignores the life of this unborn baby.”

Cox called Judge Wright’s decision abusive. “Murder trials exist in part to provide justice for the victims. Judge Wright’s decision denies justice to one of those victims. It would be one thing if a jury had reviewed the case and determined there was not enough evidence to find the defendant guilty. Rather than letting a jury decide if the child was alive, Judge Wright has made that decision for them even though there was no evidence indicating the baby was dead prior to the shooting.

The Arkansas Constitution says a judge can be impeached for gross misconduct. If this is not gross misconduct, I don’t know what is.”
Jerry Cox is the founder and president of Family Council and the Education Alliance.

Labor Unions Give $2 Million to Planned Parenthood and Pro-Abortion Groups

The biggest labor unions have long had ties with top pro-abortion organizations. A new report indicates the leading labor unions across the country donated approximately $2,000,000 to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and other abortion advocacy groups.

The American Federation of Teachers led the way with well over $1 million dollars in contributions to the Abortion Lobby. The total number of donations from the teachers organization to pro-abortion organizations is confounding. Why would a so-called teachers group give so much money to the nation’s biggest abortion business that kills future students in abortions? . . .

Here’s how much a few pro-abortion groups received from labor unions since 2007, according to Luka Ladan, communications director for the Center for Union Facts:

Planned Parenthood: $1.18 million
Emily’s List: $810,000
NARAL Pro-Choice America: $45,000

Here are the dollar amounts since 2007 that a few labor unions have given for abortion lobby funding:
American Federation of Teachers: $1,150,000
American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees: $520,100
International Association of Firefighters: $10,000
Service Employees International Union: $180,000
United Association: $40,000
United Auto Workers: $100,000
United Food and Commercial Workers International Union: $35,000
Groups like the Coalition of Labor Union Women also support abortion advocacy projects like the Contraceptive Equity Project that fights to guarantee insurance companies will cover comprehensive contraception services, including abortion. . . . Read More

UN Slams President Trump for Cutting $31 Million From Its Abortion Agenda

Every year, the United Nations Population Fund publishes a glossy report describing how its fertility reduction approach will help solve the problems facing the world. The State of World Population 2017, published this week, is remarkable in that it doubles down on discredited metrics and only very tenuously links “reproductive rights” to solutions for global inequality.

Earlier this year, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) announced that the elimination of all “unmet need” for family planning was among its central goals. For years experts have criticized the concept of “unmet need” for family planning as paternalistic, with one epidemiologist describing it as “a need with no demand.”

UNFPA’s new report is surprising in that, instead of backing away from “unmet need,” it pressed further, calling it “unmet demand.”

At a press conference at UN headquarters in New York, reporters were less interested in the content of the report than UNFPA’s defunding by the Trump administration and the agency’s stance on the controversial issue of abortion.

When asked whether UNFPA regarded “reproductive rights” as including abortion, the editor of the new report, Richard Kollodge, responded, “UNFPA advocates for the availability of family planning to avoid unintended pregnancies with the aim of avoiding abortion.”

When pressed Kollodge reiterated the standards set in 1994 at the International Conference on Population and Development, “UNFPA does not support abortion as a method of family planning and the UNFPA position is that where abortion is legal it should be safe and where it’s not legal post-abortion care should be available to everybody to save lives.” . . .

Economic and other inequality remains a much-discussed topic at both a national and international level. However, UNFPA’s framing of this issue in terms of “reproductive health and rights” in its flagship report is weakened by reliance on selective data omissions and the unfounded elevation of “need” for family planning to “demand.”

The agency is caught between donor countries pressing it to advocate for abortion and recipient States and a U.S. administration that considers UNFPA’s position too close to the abortion lobby. The United States withdrew $31 million in funding this year. . . . Read More

Pro-Lifers Barrage UN Committee in Protest

by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. (C-FAM): The United States, Poland, and more than one hundred other governments and non-governmental organizations barraged the UN Human Rights Committee with briefs, pleading them not to declare abortion a human right.

A bicameral and bipartisan coalition of 51 members of the U.S. Congress, led by Chris Smith of New Jersey, also wrote to the committee, “As lawmakers, we believe we have a duty to protect the weak, disenfranchised, unwanted and vulnerable from violence and abuse. Therefore we write to affirm that the most elemental human right of all—the right to life—includes unborn children.”

Poland’s government wrote: “Article 6 (1) protects the life of every human being in every stage of its development, as the inherent dignity of a human person starts with the very first moment of its existence.”

The UN committee is finalizing a legal commentary that excludes unborn children and the terminally ill from the right to life in article 6 of the UN treaty on civil and political rights, one of the earliest and most widely ratified UN treaties. The commentary will not be binding but could be influential.

While the official statement of the U.S. did not address euthanasia, and did not rule out the possibility of a human right to abortion under other UN treaties that had not been ratified by the United States, it wrote that “any issues concerning access to abortion […] are outside the scope of Article 6.” The U.S. described the draft commentary as “expansive” and “inconsistent with a proper interpretive analysis.”

The governments of Australia, Egypt, Malta, and the Russian Federation also opposed the imposition of a right to abortion. Pro-life organizations and academics from around the world echoed these views in briefs published on the website of the committee.

“Abortion and euthanasia are hot-button issues still debated in politics and culture all across the Globe. They are not issues that should be decided or resolved by an unelected, unaccountable, and mostly obscure committee of experts in Geneva,” wrote Civil Society for the Family, an alliance of more than 180 organizations that includes C-Fam, publisher of the Friday Fax.

Civil Society for the Family explained to the committee that the UN treaty does not exclude the unborn or the terminally ill, that it does not include a right to abortion or euthanasia, and that attempts by the committee to say otherwise are illegal and cannot give rise to obligations on member states. It also provided evidence to the committee that legalizing abortion is not needed to improve maternal health, and that doctors increasingly question the necessity of so-called “therapeutic” abortion in any circumstance.

Abortion groups and their governmental supporters also made submissions on a wide spectrum.

Sweden and Finland made single paragraph submissions to support a right to access “safe abortion.” Denmark and the United Kingdom asked the committee to no longer refer to “pregnant women” to avoid excluding pregnant transgender men from the right to abortion. France, who normally promotes abortion as a right, limited its comments to promoting abortion as a health policy. France and Germany opposed an obligation to allow euthanasia or assisted suicide. The Netherlands asked that euthanasia not be limited to “catastrophically ill” patients.

The Holy See did not make an intervention, although it has promoted the UN treaty on civil and political rights since it first came into force.

Catholic Bishop: You Can’t be Catholic and Support Abortion

Bishop Michael Campbell
From our Catholic readers around the world, but especially in the United States, one of the biggest complaints we often hear is that fellow Catholics do not follow the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church. Politicians who are Catholic but support abortion produce significant anger . . . .

Bishop Michael Campbell of Lancaster said abortion was a “foundational issue”, quoting Pope Francis who said: “We are called to defend and safeguard human life, especially in the mother’s womb, in infancy, old age and physical or mental disability.”
Consequently, we cannot claim to be Catholic and then ignore what our faith teaches on serious matters of human dignity, especially on a foundational issue like abortion. We need to be faithful and well-informed Catholics first. If we are, then our Catholic convictions will naturally enrich our country’s public life.

For some Catholics, sadly the price of admission into mainstream British life has meant that we somehow keep the Catholic brand name and tribal loyalty, but are content to live a mix of nostalgia and generic good will and ‘keep our heads down’ in the public sphere. Rather, as Catholics, we have a baptismal duty to sanctify and humanize our country; in other words, to lead it to Jesus Christ.

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the (1967) Abortion Act in Britain, we recall we’re citizens of heaven first and we have pro-life obligations to the poor, the homeless, the disabled, the elderly and the refugee. But abortion is foundational. There’s no way around it. It’s the cornerstone issue for any society because it deals with the most basic human right of all – the right to life.

We just cannot build a just society while allowing more than a 185,000 abortions a year (in England and Wales), or even half that number. This is why “abortion reduction” strategies can sound persuasive and do have value, but they never adequately address the brutality and injustice of abortion itself, or abortion’s deep wounds to both women and children – with 8.8 million lives lost thus far in Britain since the introduction of the Act.

Some Catholics – including some periodicals and newspapers who claim to use that name – seem simply embarrassed by the abortion issue.

The abortion struggle gets in the way of their natural political alliances. Others don’t really agree with the Church’s teaching, or don’t accept the personhood of the unborn child. Others just want a respectable way to explain away this issue and get on with what they regard as the ‘real’ work of the Church!

I don’t think we’ve lost the abortion struggle just yet. Quite the opposite. A social conflict like abortion or racism is fundamental; it challenges the moral premises of a society and can often go on for decades. Overturning the Abortion Act is achievable. So are legal restrictions on abortion and legal protections for the unborn. Let us work and pray under God for this intention – especially with the Rosary this October – always with the compassion of Christ.

Until next week, let us pray for each other and for all those Catholics and others, too, who work to nurture and protect human life at its most vulnerable.

Planned Parenthood: Money + Abortion

by Bill Poehler: Planned Parenthood dominates abortion in Minnesota and across the United States. But its very small role in reproductive services continues to shrink even as it grows its abortion business, according to its latest annual reports.

“Planned Parenthood’s services in Minnesota are extremely limited—and it is consolidating its operations,” said Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) Executive Director Scott Fischbach. “Money and abortion have emerged as its primary goals.”

But that’s not the public perception it propagates. Just last August Minnesota’s Sen. Amy Klobuchar falsely claimed in a television interview that “a great majority of women in this country get their health care” from Planned Parenthood.

The statement from Klobuchar was wildly inaccurate. Its Minnesota clients last year hit a five-year low of just 64,000 in a state of 5.5 million residents. Nationally, Planned Parenthood reaches less than one percent of the U.S. population.

Clearly there is no truth to Sen. Klobuchar’s statement. But she remains a reliable friend of Planned Parenthood with a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record.

Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar corporation driven to grow. Nationwide, it receives about $550 million a year from federal and state government sources. Government funding increased significantly during the Obama administration.

President Trump and many members of Congress want to reverse that trend and defund the abortion industry. A vote to that end passed in the U.S. House of Representatives last spring and was nearly approved in the Senate in July.

Minnesota’s Sens. Klobuchar and Al Franken voted to continue funding the abortion industry. Ongoing efforts are focused on plans that would replace Obamacare.

MCCL’s own defunding efforts led to passage of a ban on taxpayer funding of abortion in the 2017 legislative session. The bill was vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton.

Along with fewer clients, Planned Parenthood provides fewer services. Its units of contraception sold in the state were down 22 percent last year—and this from an organization that claims its contraceptives sales are the reason why state abortion numbers are at 40-year lows.

Planned Parenthood did not even report breast exams, pap tests , or HPV vaccinations in its 2016 annual report as it did in previous years. But these numbers were in decline in the previous two reports, some by as much as 30 percent per year.

Also in steep decline is the number of facilities. In 2010 Planned Parenthood had 25 clinics across Minnesota; today the number is 17. And some of those locations are open fewer than 10 hours per week, serving primarily as feeder clinics to its single abortion facility in St. Paul.

So where is the growth at Planned Parenthood? You guessed it—revenue and abortion.

The abortion organization received more government funds than ever last year—a total of $5.3 million. Its total annual revenue nearly doubled from 2006 to 2016 to more than $41 million.

“Planned Parenthood is driven to increase revenue by any means possible, even by taking advantage of vulnerable women,” Fischbach said.

While overall abortion numbers in Minnesota have fallen from 14,000 to just under 10,000 in the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood has managed to increase its abortions by 54 percent over the same period.

Planned Parenthood now performs 56.5 percent of all abortions in the state; in 2006 it did just 26 percent. This is a stunning market share achievement, particularly considering the 30 percent drop in total abortions over the last decade.

The secret to Planned Parenthood’s dramatic increase of its business is taxpayer funded abortions. The organization aggressively markets “free” abortions to low-income, abortion-vulnerable women.

Planned Parenthood nearly tripled its taxpayer-funded abortion business from 2006 to 2015 (latest numbers available). It now performs more than 2,000 of these “free” abortions every year.

More revenue and abortions, fewer facilities, clients and services. This is the story of Planned Parenthood in Minnesota.

“Planned Parenthood’s concentrated focus on abortion should concern everyone,” Fischbach concluded. “Abortion numbers would be much lower without Planned Parenthood’s relentless killing of unborn children.”

Clinton Foundation Won’t Return $250,000 Donation From Accused Rapist Harvey Weinstein

The Clinton Foundation, embroiled in numerous scandals, says it will not give back the money it received from Hollywood mogul and accused rapist Harvey Weinstein.

The top-name film producer has been a big supporter of Democrats such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, and has spoken highly of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Weinstein is known for movies such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “The English Patient” and “The King’s Speech.”

But amid numerous allegations that Weinstein sexually assaulted actresses, many politicians and groups that received donations from him have announced plans to give the money back. Others said they will donate the money to charities that help victims of sexual assault.

The Clinton Foundation is one exception. According to the Capital Research Center, the Clintons are friends of Weinstein, and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton waited six days before condemning his alleged abuses.

Weinstein gave $250,000 to the Clintons’ “charity” since 2003, and another $5,400 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016, according to the report.

A spokesperson for the foundation justified keeping the money to Fox News, saying “We are a charity.” . . . .Read More:

Trump Admin Settles Obamacare Abortion Mandate Lawsuits, Christians Won’t Have to Fund Abortion Drugs

In a huge victory for pro-life Advocates, the Trump Administration has settled lawsuits with a firm representing more than 70 clients fighting the Obama abortion mandate.

Dozens of Christian-run organizations and businesses filed suit in response to the Obamacare abortion mandate that forced them to pay for abortion-causing drugs in their employee health insurance plans. The Obama Administration refused to provide religious or moral exemptions for those companies and groups so they filed suit.

Last week, President Donald Trump expanded the religious and moral exemptions to allow for additional protection for those Christian organizations and others who don’t want to be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs under their health insurance coverage. The settlement expands the Trump Administration efforts to protect Christians and those who want to not be involved in abortions.

One of the advantages of the settlement is that the terms and protections are binding even if a future president puts the abortion mandate back in place fully. . . . Read More

California Gov Jerry Brown Vetoes Bill to Force Christian Schools to Hire Abortion Activists

California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation Sunday that could have forced churches, Christian schools and pro-life organizations to employ abortion supporters.

California Assembly Bill 569 would have prohibited employers from requiring their employees to follow a moral code of conduct, such as no sex outside of marriage and no abortions. It also would have prohibited employers from disciplining or firing employees for actions that violate the mission or beliefs of the group.

The bill did not provide any exceptions for employers, meaning pro-life organizations, churches, religious schools and faith-based groups could have been forced to keep on employees whose actions are contrary to their faith or mission.

Brown vetoed the legislation Sunday, despite being an abortion supporter. He said the concerns addressed by the bill already are covered under current law, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Pro-life and religious groups, including the California Catholic Conference and the California Family Council, strongly opposed the measure, saying it would violate their First Amendment rights. . . . Read More

Abortionist Caught With 14 Containers of Aborted Babies in His Car Pleads No Contest

Abortionist Michael Arthur Roth, 75, appeared in a McComb County Circuit Court today and entered a plea of “No Contest” to three felony counts of Larceny in a Building.

The no contest pleas constitute felony convictions.

Activist Lynn Mills of Pro-Life Michigan was in the court room during the hearing and told Operation Rescue that Roth made a plea for leniency because he recently suffered a stroke.

Roth was criminally charged as the result of a car accident in 2015, when police discovered stolen drugs, abortion equipment, and aborted baby remains in his trunk. Roth had been secretly carrying out hazardous home abortions. He and an accomplice had stolen the instruments and drugs from an abortion facility owned by Angel Ojeda, who had employed Roth.

The incident earned him a nickname as the “Trunk Abortionist,” because he operated his illicit home abortion business out of the trunk of his car. . . . .ead More:

President's Pro-Life Advisor Kellyanne Conway: “I Start Every Day With Prayer”

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told the Values Voters Summit in D.C. Friday that her Catholic faith is a “bedrock” of her life, informing everything from her pro-life views to her social media practices.

During an on-stage interview, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins asked Conway about the role of faith in her career as the first woman ever to head a winning presidential campaign.

“I actually don’t know how I would be able to do any of this without my faith,” she replied, “and that is because it’s a bedrock because when you are raised in a faith-centric household you realize from the very beginning that there’s always something bigger and better than you.”

“That humility is a very important attribute to take to any position that has such great gravity and responsibility as I feel ours do in the White House,” she emphasized.

Conway went on to describe how faith has even informed her approach to social media. . . . Read More

President Trump Defends Defunding Intl Planned Parenthood: We Must “Protect the Unborn”

President Donald Trump defended his pro-life views and actions as president during an address to thousands of pro-life advocates during today’s Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C.

“We cherish the sacred dignity of every human life,” Trump told the pro-life advocates in attendance. “We are all made by the same God in heaven.”

Trump also defended his decision to defund International Planned Parenthood, saying he did so to protect babies from abortion.

“To protect the unborn I reinstated a policy first put in place by President Reagan, the Mexico City Policy,” he said.

The president defended his recent decision to roll back the Obamacare abortion mandate.

The Trump administration announced that employers will now be exempt from the federal requirement to provide insurance coverage for abortion-causing drugs in their health insurance plans if it conflicts with their sincerely held religious or moral beliefs. This now limits a rule created under the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act that required that employers, including non-church religious organizations, must cover all forms of contraception, from birth control pills to abortion drugs and devices at no cost to the employees.

“We protect religious liberty,” he told the cheering crowd. “We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values.”

“The Little Sisters of the Poor live by a beautiful calling and we will not let others take that away,” he added. “They were going through hell.”

The president also defended the family.

“The American family is the true bedrock of American life,” he said. “We know parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise their children. We don’t worship government, we worship God.”

And he recalled his nomination to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

“Some of those promises are to support and defend the Constitution. I appointed and confirmed a Supreme Court justice in the mold of the late great Justice Antonin Scalia, the newest member of the Supreme Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch. (Cheering and applause) To protect the unborn, I have reinstated a policy first put in place by President Ronald Reagan, the Mexico City Policy. (Applause) To protect religious liberty, including protecting groups like this one, I signed a new executive action in a beautiful ceremony at the White House on our National Day of Prayer, (Applause) which day we made official.” . . .

Unemployment Claims Fall To Lowest Level In 43 years, Despite Hurricanes

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — The total number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to 1.89 million at the end of September, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, the lowest such mark in nearly 44 years.

And new claims for unemployment benefits dropped 15,000 to 243,000 in the first full week of October, according to the agency, as the job market bounces back from hurricane damage even faster than forecasters expected.

Low new jobless claims are a good sign. They indicate that layoffs are rare, and accordingly that job creation is strong. ... (read more)
