Shocking Numbers That Show The Media Is Lying To You About Unemployment In America

leave a comment »

FOUND ON THE INTERNET:

 

Did you know that the percentage of the U.S. labor force that is
employed has continually been falling since 2006 according to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics? Did you know that the increase in the
number of Americans “not in the labor force” during Barack Obama’s
first four years in the White House was more than three times greater
than the increase in the number of Americans “not in the labor force”
during the entire decade of the 1980s? The mainstream media would
have us believe that 157,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy
in January. Based on that news, the Dow broke the 14,000 barrier
for the first time since October 2007. But if you actually look
at the “non-seasonally adjusted” numbers, the number of Americans
with a job actually decreased by 1,446,000 between December and
January. But nowhere in the mainstream media did you hear that the
U.S. economy lost more than 1.4 million jobs between December and
January. It is amazing the things that you can find out when you
actually take the time to look at the hard numbers instead of just
listening to the media spin. Back in 2007, more than 146 million
Americans were employed.  Today, only 141.6 million Americans
are employed even though our population has grown steadily since
then. When the government and the media tell you that we are in a
“recovery” and that unemployment is lower than it was a couple of
years ago, I encourage you to dig deeper. The truth is that even
the government’s own numbers tell us that the percentage of the
U.S. labor force that is employed continues to fall and that the
U.S. economy is heading into a recession. The Obama administration
and the media have been lying to you about unemployment and about
the true condition of our economy.  After you see the numbers that
I have compiled in this article, I think that you will agree with me.

First of all, let’s take a look at the percentage of the civilian
labor force that has been employed over the past several years.
These numbers come directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
As you can see, this is a number that has been steadily falling
since 2006:

2006: 63.1
2007: 63.0
2008: 62.2
2009: 59.3
2010: 58.5
2011: 58.4

In January, only 57.9 percent of the civilian labor force was
employed.

Do the numbers above represent a positive trend or a negative trend?

Even a 2nd grader could answer that question.

So how in the world can the Obama administration and the mainstream
media claim that the employment picture is getting better and that
we are in a “recovery”?

But most Americans believe what they are told. It is almost as if
we are in some kind of a “matrix” where reality is defined by the
corporate-controlled propaganda that is relentlessly pumped into
our brains.

The only way that the government has been able to show a declining
unemployment rate is by dumping massive numbers of Americans into
the “not in the labor force” category.

Just check out how the number of Americans “not in the labor force”
has absolutely skyrocketed in recent years;

2006: 77,387,000
2007: 78,743,000
2008: 79,501,000
2009: 81,659,000
2010: 83,941,000
2011: 86,001,000

In January, there were supposedly 89,868,000 Americans that were
at least 16 years of age that were not in the labor force.

That number has risen by more than 8 million since Barack Obama
first entered the White House, and that is highly unusual, because
the number of Americans “not in the labor force” only increased
by 2,518,000 during the entire decade of the 1980s.

You sure can get the numbers to look more “favorable” if you
pretend that millions upon millions of American workers simply
“don’t want a job” any longer. The truth is that if the labor force
participation rate was at the same level it was at when Barack
Obama was first elected, the official unemployment rate would be
well above 10 percent.

But that wouldn’t do at all, would it? 7.9 percent sounds so
much nicer.

And of course even if you do have a job that does not mean that
you are doing okay.

If you can believe it, in America today 41 percent of all workers
make $20,000 a year or less.

To me, that is a mind blowing statistic. It would be incredibly
challenging for anyone to live on $20,000 a year, much less try to
support a family.

If you live in Washington D.C. or New York City and you have a
“good job” working for the establishment, you may not realize
it, but there are tens of millions of American families that are
really hurting out there. According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income”
at this point, and most of those people actually do have jobs.

For much more on the “working poor” in the United States, please
see my previous article entitled “35 Statistics About The Working
Poor In America That Will Blow Your Mind”.

If something is not done, the middle class will continue to
disappear and poverty in America will continue to explode.

In a previous article, I noted that during Obama’s first term,
the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of
about 11,000 per day.

How bad do things have to get before people realize that we are
living through a nightmare?

Sadly, most Americans still have faith in the system.

Most Americans are still convinced that our politicians will somehow
find a way to turn things around.

Most Americans will gather around their television sets this weekend
and watch the Super Bowl and laugh at all the funny commercials
without even thinking about how America is literally falling apart
all around them.

But there is one group of Americans that is acutely aware of how bad
things have really gotten. Small businesses have traditionally been
the primary engine of job growth in this country, but right now small
business owners all over the nation are facing a tremendous crisis.

Millions of small businesses are on the verge of extinction, and
yet our politicians just continue to pile on more taxes, more rules
and more regulations.

A recent Gallup poll found that 61 percent of all small business
owners in America are “worried about the potential cost of
healthcare”, and that an astounding 30 percent of all small business
owners in America are not hiring and fear that they will go out of
business within the next 12 months.

In a previous article entitled “We Are
Witnessing The Death Of Small Business In America”
http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/we-are-witnessing-the-death-of-small-business-in-america,
I detailed how small businesses in America are being systematically
wiped out. Small businesses are dying all around us, and the number
of new small businesses continues to decline.

According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the decline
in the number of startup jobs per one thousand Americans breaks
down by presidential administrationâ¦

Bush Sr.: 11.3
Clinton: 11.2
Bush Jr.: 10.8
Obama: 7.8

Is that a good trend or a bad trend?

All of this is so simple that even the family pet should be able
to figure it out, and yet most Americans seem oblivious to all of
this. They just keep gobbling up the mainstream media propaganda
and they just continue to go out and wildly spend money.

It is almost as if we didn’t learn any lessons from 2008.

Even while household spending in Europe has moderated, household
spending in the United States continues to soar.

And guess what? The infamous “no money down mortgages” are back. If
we wait long enough, perhaps “interest only mortgages” will make
a comeback as well.

Unfortunately, I am afraid that time is running out. we have been
living in the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world,
and it is only a matter of time until it bursts.

2008 was just a “hiccup” compared to what is coming. Our politicians
and the Federal Reserve were able to keep the house of cards from
completely crashing down back then, but they are not going to be
able to avert the economic horror show that is rapidly approaching.

I hope that you are getting prepared. Back in 2008, millions of
Americans suddenly lost their jobs, and because many of them did
not have any savings, many of them suddenly lost their homes. One
of the most important things that you can do to prepare for the
coming crisis is to build up an emergency fund.  If things suddenly
go bad, you don’t want to lose your house and everything that you
have always worked for.

In addition, anything that you can do to become more self-sufficient
and more independent of the system is a good thing, because the
system is failing. The years ahead are going to be much more chaotic
than what we are experiencing right now, and when the next crisis
strikes you will be very thankful for the time and the energy that
you put into preparing.

So what are all of you seeing in your own areas?

Are businesses shutting down?

Are people having a hard time finding good jobs?

END

 

What is the big LOSER(u-bam-a) doing about this?

Is he creating more jobs?  No.  Is he lying about it?  Yes.  Is he blaming the innocent for his failures?  Yes.   Is he going to leave a legacy for the American people?  Definitely.   What will that legacy be?   That of a highly incompetent individual who truly hates the United States.

Prepare yourself for worse.

Counting the Ways the Media Lies About the Economy

by John Nolte 2 Feb 2013

Pop quiz: What was the biggest news story this week? And I don’t mean, what was the biggest news story according to Obama’s media.

Obviously, it was the economy taking a nosedive into negative territory last quarter, along with the fact that hardly enough jobs were created last month to keep up with population growth. Oh, and the unemployment rate increased. Of course the economy is the biggest story; it affects the most people and Obama’s doing it wrong.

But not only is the media never-minding the economy, much of the media coverage related to economic bad news is forever being spun into good news. A few examples…

Politico saw the jobs numbers as something that “could soothe some of the renewed economic anxiety in Washington[.]”

The AP saw the jobs numbers as proof “[t]he U.S. job market is proving sturdier than expected” and “mostly encouraging.”

CBS News wants to assure all of us that the “[l]atest job numbers signal economic recovery.”

Yahoo News says, “Don’t Be Fooled by the GDP Report: The Economy Is Gaining Strength”

You can add all that to what we documented yesterday.

Granted, some in the media took the report a little more seriously, but they still joined the coordinated wagon-circling to ensure bad news for Obama in no way became The Narrative — for that might damage Obama politically, and he’s on a left-wing cultural rampage against those God and guns Bitter Clingers, donchaknow.

What you’re seeing from the media isn’t happy talk, and it’s not bias; it’s shamelessly dishonest propaganda —  it’s the media nakedly saying, “The chocolate ration has been increased from 30 to 25 grams per week.”

How do you like these chocolate rations:

  1. Poverty’s increasing.
  2. Gas prices have almost doubled.
  3. The price of health care premiums has exploded and will only explode more (but-but-but Obama said…!)
  4. Poor and middle class incomes are falling.
  5. One-in-five Americans are on food stamps.
  6. The non-partisan GAO says Obama’s exploding deficit is unsustainable.
  7.  Eight million people are looking for work.
  8. Our labor force has shrunk to thirty-year levels (170k more dropped out last month).
  9. Chronic unemployment hasn’t been this bad since World War II.
  10. The long-term unemployment rate is over 14%, and if the labor force was merely the same size today as it was the day Obama took office, today’s unemployment rate would be closer to 11%.

 

When’s the last time the media talked about any of that? But what Economic Narrative does the media obsess over? Naturally, the only news that can be spun into wonderfulness for Lightbringer: Wall Street, baby!

Oh my, it’s a whole new world. Suddenly the media loves the idea of the rich getting richer. But why are the rich getting richer? It’s not the economy, stupid — it’s The Fedpumpity, pumpity, pumpity pump. It’s nothing more than an ongoing boob job to take our eyes off the line for government cheese.

And after the media’s done shouting squirrel at the Dow, it then turns around and lies explains that any hiccups in the economy were caused by the fact that The State didn’t spend enough last quarter. If the State were bigger, more powerful, and taking more money out of the private economy The Twenties Will Roar Again!

You see, children America *furrows brow* the reason the GDP collapsed *scratches beard* is due to the fact our blessed State is not spending us into bankruptcy fast enough. It was the decrease in government spending last quarter *adjusts prescription-less smart-person glasses* that hurt our economy. But if we listen to Dear Leader *leans, forward, entwines fingers* and increase the power of The State *smiles warmly*  chocolate rations will increase from 25 to 20 grams.

We’re being told that, even though, uhm, federal spending increased last quarter.

Obama’s abysmal record in all things not involving killing Osama bin Laden, has forced the media to move from bias into outright lying.

The media doesn’t care about the poor or the ongoing creation of Two Americas. All the media cares about is protecting The State and making sure nothing saps Obama’s political power.

You see, should Obama be politically damaged, the media thinks to its wicked self, churches won’t be forced to violate their conscience, the NRA might not be damaged, Bitter Clingers might keep their guns, The State might shrink, and the GOP might not be destroyed in time for Obama to control absolutely everything after 2014.

Now that the media and The State have aligned, we live in a world where the economy is good — not because it’s good — but because the media and the White House say it’s good.

So shut up and eat your chocolate, racists.

END

For those of you in denial, how are your finances doing, those of your family, your town or city?

Go out and ask the man on the street.

A real American president would be doing something about the economic situation: which everyone knows u-bam-a is not(evil and incompetent loser that he is).

Failures of u-bam-a and Former Presidents

leave a comment »

The United States was number one in broadband access in 2000; now it is 16th. In 2000, the United States made 40% of world’s telecom equipment, now it makes only 21%. And, the United States has fewer people with cellular phones – in percentage terms – than 41 other countries.

Based on this, the United States is no longer on top.  It is a nation going downhill fast.

How could our presidents let this happen?

Simple.  They were ALL incompetent and evil:  incompetent in that they did not have the ability to run the nation; evil in that they put their wants ahead of those of the nation.

And the foolish voters keep election these dolts.

Does anyone in the United States want superior and honorable individuals to return the nation to greatness?

If so, follow http://newpoliticalparty.wordpress.com/

u-bam-a, THE EVIL

leave a comment »

From an article by Robert Bauman, used without permission:

Union Not Division

President Obama seems determined to divide America.

As Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote about Obama’s bitter attacks on Republicans and his opponents in general, the President seems to think: “No one has good faith but him. No one is sincere but him.”

One reasonably can think that this is the very moment for the president to try to unify our country, to unite Americans, not to foment dissention and bitterness.

Certainly Obama has no popular mandate for his arrogant “my way or the highway” or “I will not negotiate” attitude. He got 51.1% of the votes last November, the first president to be re-elected with less popular votes and less Electoral College votes than he got in his first term.

Mr. Obama barely retains the approval of a slim majority of Americans, 51%, according to a pre-inauguration poll by The New York Times and CBS News; that is down considerably from 62% soon after he took office in 2009.

Instead of preaching unity, President Obama has used the pre-inaugural period, as Peggy Noonan said, to show the “ depth of his disdain for the leaders of the other major party and, by inference, that party’s voters, which is to say more or less half the country.”

Abraham Lincoln has always been in vogue with me, ever since my Aunt Louise gave me a biography about him for my 7th birthday. I read and re-read it and decide to become a Republican, a lawyer and go into politics. But the current Spielberg movie, Lincoln, suddenly has made the Great Emancipator momentarily noticeable to an American public woefully ignorant about much of our history.

So learn from Honest Abe. Instead of causing national dissention, perhaps the loser(Our insert) from Chicago should follow the example of Lincoln’s great Second Inaugural Address.

When Lincoln spoke on the rainy East Front of the Capitol, the unfinished Dome above him, his assassin John Wilkes Booth stood only yards away in the crowd. Forty-one days after delivering the address, the president would be dead.

No doubt that day many expected a triumphant president would speak of the terrible war’s end and the coming Union victory, but Lincoln knew that with more than 600,000 dead, what was needed was a new era of reconciliation.

Lincoln kept it short, only 701 words, the second shortest of all such inaugural remarks, but as Lincoln scholar C.A. Tripp noted, he “surprised his audience by steeping his address in religious language…he invoked religion as a balm for a nation deeply divided.”

Lincoln closed his short speech with the immortal words of reconciliation and healing that are carved in the walls of the Lincoln Memorial in the nation’s capital, setting the tone for his plan for the nation’s Reconstruction.

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.

Abraham Lincoln died, but his powerful words live on.

Four years ago almost to this day, I wrote an editorial entitled: “We Wish the New President and Our Nation Well.”

At that time, then president-elect Obama offered his opinion that “what’s required is a new declaration of independence — from ideology and small thinking, prejudice and bigotry.”

In the 2008 campaign the largely unknown Obama preached unity and hope. But we knew very little about what Mr. Obama’s true political philosophy might be.

Now, after four years I think we can conclude that this president does indeed have an ideology all his own; a mixture of arrogance, disregard for the rule of law, an ultra- Keynesianism that ignores debt and deficits and policies that dabble in both socialism and fascism.

Is this un-America – or is this the New America?

I repeat what I said four years ago: We wish President Barack Obama well. In doing so we are wishing a brighter future for our troubled country and the world beyond. May God bless him and America.

Faithfully yours,


Bob Bauman

What Mr. Bauman does not understand: u-bam-a is NOT an American and even more he hates Americans.  He is doing his everything he can to destroy the United States.  And the fools are on his side.

If anyone reading this is really an American, he or she should be doing everything they can to stop the great EVIL, u-bam-a.
