In the past 60 days, the unemployment rate has decreased from 8.3% to 7.8%. Does it feel like it? Are hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people rejoicing over their new jobs?
The same government that is reporting this news is the same government that stated officially over and over again that the attack from three sides on the US Consulate in Libya – which featured heavy weapons, coordinated indirect fire and multiple waves – was a spontaneous and unplanned affair prompted by sudden outrage over a basically homemade video that had actually been on the internet for the previous six months rather than a “terrorist attack.”
Did you believe that, too? Are you that seriously stupid???
There was simply no way that the Obama administration did not know that the attack was not a terrorist attack. For the record, they had actually already specifically labelled it a “terrorist attack” in order to release the critical military and intelligence assets that were needed to deal with the attack. And other than the fact that Obama was too ignorant to know the truth because he had failed to show up at 60% of his daily intelligence briefings, he simply had to know that he was lying and instructing key administration officials to lie for him.
I can’t state as a categorical fact that the unemployment report is a cynical lie to benefit Obama politically, but what I can state as a categorical fact is that if any president or any administration in American history were going to lie on these numbers, this is the one on both counts to do it. Because this is a president who has surrounded himself not with skilled, competent professionals, but rather with leftwing ideologues who would protect their messiah.
The Obama Labor Department’s household survey claims that 873,000 people just entered the workforce. That is the biggest increase in 29 years; with said increase being accompanied by GDP growth of over 5%. But the employer’s survey, on the other hand, only found that 104,ooo jobs were created, with 10,000 of those being in government. And GDP growth was just revised downward to 1.3% from 1.7% – which, for the record, was the lowest since January of 2009 when Obama took office.
It’s rather difficult to understand just how we suddenly basically tripled our GDP growth such that we could get these massive jobs figure changes.
I heard on CNBC that 10,000 government jobs in one month is the largest number of government jobs recorded in a one-month period since the statistic started being recorded in 1948.
If these 760,000 extra jobs exist at ALL, NONE OF THEM ARE FULL-TIME, STABLE JOBS. And that IS a categorical fact because the so-called “real unemployment rate,” the U-6 rate, remained absolutely unchanged at 14.7%:
The broader U-6 rate — which takes into account part-time workers who want full-time work and lots of discouraged workers who’ve given up looking — stayed unchanged at 14.7%. That’s a better gauge of the true unemployment rate and state of the American labor market.
And it’s at such an incredibly critical moment for Obama that this miracle of the job numbers suddenly appears from Obama’s Labor Department.
Something really stinks.
Especially given the fact that the real number of people unemployed increased by 100,000 new lost jobs last month to 23.2 million. How the hell does that number increase from 23.1 million to 23.2 million and we add 760,000 freaking jobs???
How about the fact that we just found out that household incomes fell for ANOTHER month under Obama? And that the American people have lost 8.2% of their income and an average of $5,000 under this “successful” presidency?
How about the fact that the record number of food stamp dependents that Obama created exploded to a whole new level last month? Or that more people are finding food stamps each month under Obama than are finding jobs?
So Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, smelled that stink and tweeted:
One of the things that failed to pass Welch’s smell test is that he is deeply involved with thirteen major companies, and NONE of them had shown an increase in jobs from the second quarter (the one that saw the downward-revised 1.3% GDP growth).
Obama’s labor secretary Hilda Solis is the same labor secretary who helped Obama to take away the legal rights of secured GM bondholders and give the company to Obama’s union supporters. Hilda Solis is the same labor secretary who pointed a damn gun at the Boeing Corporation for daring to try to build a new plant in a Republican/right-to-work state. And we’re not supposed to believe that this woman is more than capable of cooking the books for her boss???
The Obama administration was specifically identified by the DEMOCRAT Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee as the source behind the devastating leaks that had been destroying America’s national security in an attempt to make Obama appear tough on that front. And we’re not supposed to believe that this administration is more than capable of cooking the books???
Obama has produced fewer and fewer jobs. He created fewer jobs in 2012 than in 2011, and he’d created fewer jobs in 2011 than he had in 2010. Frankly, if you want less jobs, elect more Obama.
