Oft-Documented LIAR Brian Williams Going To Liberal Haven MSNBC Just Proves My Thesis: Liberals Are At HOME With Liars And Their Lies.

June 19, 2015

The usually leftist Daily Beast has a title that at least ASKS the right question:

Why Is Brian Williams Good Enough for MSNBC, but Not NBC?
The suspended ‘Nightly News’ anchor is reportedly staying at 30 Rock—but going to work for NBC News’s ratings-challenged corporate sibling. How the move raises even more awkward questions.
Lloyd Grove  06.18.151:38 AM ET

For whatever reason, Lloyd Grove never actually bothers to answer his own question.  He merely reports the awkward factoid that:

Multiple spokespeople at NBC News and MSNBC were contacted by The Daily Beast on Wednesday night but either didn’t respond or declined to comment. Williams’s agent/attorney, Washington lawyer Robert Barnett—who according to CNN’s Brian Stelter had been spotted in meetings with NBC execs in recent days—didn’t reply to an email seeking comment.

Grove at least provides a partial listing of the sins against all credibility that Williams inflicted on his own reputation:

The leaks, which at times seemed orchestrated from within the NBC executive suite at 30 Rockefeller Center, concerned his on- and off-air exaggerations of a helicopter ride during the Iraq War and his anecdotes about witnessing a suicide, seeing a floating body during Hurricane Katrina, and looking Egyptian thugs straight in the eye as they whipped protesters in Egypt’s Tahrir Square during the Arab Spring, among other tall tales reportedly uncovered by an internal NBC News investigation.

Williams initially offered an on-air apology February 4 after being caught in an exaggeration by the Army newspaper Stars and Stripes, when he claimed erroneously on his newscast that during a visit to Iraq in 2003, he was a passenger in a helicopter that was hit and forced to the ground by a rocket-propelled grenade. It turned out that Williams—who told the same war story on CBS’s Late Show With David Letterman as well as on actor Alec Baldwin’s interview program on WNYC radio—was riding in a helicopter that took no fire and was some distance away from the action, according to multiple Iraq War veterans who were on the scene and spoke to Stars and Stripes.

So, given the fact that we at least have a darn good question but nothing close to an answer, would you like to hear the answer I literally gave back-to-back two days in a row just over the last three days?  On June 16 I wrote and on June 17 I quoted myself as having written the following – with the caveat that on both occasions recent events gave me ample evidence to state it as a FACT – that gets you to the heart of why THE network established to be THE Democrat Party mouthpiece would hire a documented liar as a “reporter”:

It’s really beyond amazing, now, the willingness to be deceived and to engage in self-deception the way the left is.  Everything under the sun is just an atheist-driven postmodernist and existentialist-based “social construct” with them, whether it’s the humanity of a baby in the womb or the nature of male-female relations and God’s created order or transgender identity or now even something as physically obvious as race: If Rachel Dolezal thinks of herself as black, well, she’s clearly got to be black, then.  If Bruce Jenner thinks he’s a chick, well, it would be intolerant to say he’s NOT a chick.  No matter what the hanging down parts say to the contrary because that’s only a “fact” and these people don’t give a flaming damn about facts or truth.  If I say that I’m the President of the United States, I ought to be able to kick Obama’s skinny ass out of the White House and put my feet up on the desk in the oval office, because if I think it, it’s got to be accepted as true, dontchaknow.  If I can be a woman because I say I think I’m a woman or a black woman because I say I think I’m a black woman, then why the hell shouldn’t I be the damn president because I say I think I’m the damn president???

Progressive liberalism is intrinsically fascist, and fascism is the rejection of reason.  Nazism was the rejection of reason and the embrace of raw, naked hate emotion: and that is precisely what we are seeing unleashed from the left as cities burn down and every single encounter with a black person by the police becomes the next reason to riot.  In the same manner, conservatives are persona non grata at virtually any college or university because they will be screamed down by a gauntlet of leftwing hate or worse yet banned by the universities themselves while liberal intellectuals decry the very freedom of speech itself.  And the rabid rejection of actual reality is rampant with these people: Bruce Jenner is a woman even though HE is clearly not a woman.  Rachel Dolezal is black even though anybody who isn’t blind can immediately see that she is white in spite of her black-face and her hairdresser-induced Afro.  Truth doesn’t matter; truth has nothing whatsoever to do with these people.  Progressive liberals aren’t people who listen to the truth; they are the kind of people who chant or rant or scream slogans in the faces of people who try to explain the truth to them.  Which is why the most intolerant places on earth today are the universities where leftist faculty and administrators got their foot in the door and then slammed that door shut on anyone who doesn’t think exactly like they do.

In the same way, the black leftists who are so damned fast to scream “racism” are pathologically racist themselves by their own demagoguery.  Or let me put it thus: where is the “Pan-Anglo Congress“???  Where’s the “National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People“???  Where’s the “Congressional White Caucus“???  Where’s the “United Caucasian College Fund“???  Where are the “historically white colleges and universities” where white kids get preferential treatment for their race and receive scholarship from the aforementioned United Caucasian College Fund???  Where’s the “National White Chamber of Commerce” focused on advancing white-owned businesses???  Where are all the “historically white denominations“???  Where are all the white looters and rioters targeting black businesses for destruction as whites erupt in race riots in cities across America???  Where are the white people playing the race-game of “black bear hunting” the way black thugs do by playing their “knock-out game” of “polar bear hunting“???  If white people did what black people do on a massive scale, leftist black people would be demonizing us and slandering us and tearing their robes and pouring sackcloth and ashes over their heads as they wept and wailed in the streets.  But these same people are FINE being so racist it’s beyond unreal.

Because facts don’t matter to such people.  A demonstration and documentation of rabid hypocrisy doesn’t matter.  They are ONLY capable of seeing the speck in their brother’s eye and NEVER the giant log in their own eyes.  And every single one of these black organizations makes it official that black leftists utterly reject the teachings of Jesus and are determined to find the speck in their brother’s eye while they ignore the giant damn logs in their own.

Liberals are pathological hypocrites in so many ways that its beyond unreal.  But one of the very worst ways is their hypocrisy on free speech.  After being allowed a voice on the basis of what they claimed was an innate right to free speech, the left now demands that free speech be destroyed lest any other voice have any other right to any kind of legitimacy.

I am beyond sick at the toxic, racist and race-baiting moral filth that comes out of the pathologically hypocritical leftwing and the Democrat Party who marches to their drumbeat.

Every single day I’ve got new evidence to factually demonstrate that the heart of the Democrat Party and of liberalism is a hatred of God and a rejection of the truth and a willingness and desire to believe lies from the father of lies.

Allow me to summarize my point yet again: there is something about the perverted worldview of liberalism that not only opens them up to being deceived but literally makes them hunger for being lied to and deceived the way a baby hungers for his mommy’s milk.  Liberals and Democrats will hungrily devour lies and reject anything that smells like truth or reality or actual facts.  They are pathologically immune from truth.

And so it is actually quite simple to understand why a dishonest and depraved network perpetuating a dishonest and depraved worldview would rush to gobble up a dishonest fabricator like Brian Williams much the way that the goldfish in a restaurant pond would rush to gobble up a bratty child’s gob of spit.  They literally cannot help themselves.

Democrats Reveal Their Ugly Fascist Face: American People Are Stupid Sheep Who Must Be Deceived By The Superior Illuminati Class

November 12, 2014

If I sound furious, it is because I am FURIOUS.  We have watched the Party of Lies, the Party of Satan, take over America and it may be too late to change course now from the “God damn America” that Barack Obama and the Democrat Party have “fundamentally transformed America” into.

The essence of fascists is that they must lead the stupid sheep to pasture and they often have to lead the stupid animals by deception.

Democrats are tied with “the most pathologically dishonest people who ever existed.”  Because you can be AS dishonest as a Democrat, but it is impossible to be MORE dishonest.

Let us listen to the true voice of fascist liberal arrogance:

ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber in a speech:

The tape, played on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” showed Gruber speaking at an October 2013 event at Washington University in St. Louis.

Referring to the so-called “Cadillac tax” on high-end health plans, he said: “They proposed it and that passed, because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference.” 

Gruber specifically was referring to the way the “Cadillac tax” was designed — he touted their plan to, instead of taxing policy holders, tax the insurance companies that offered them. He suggested that taxing individuals would have been politically unpalatable, but taxing the companies worked because Americans didn’t understand the difference.

And ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber in a different speech:

This is similar to remarks he made at a separate event around the same time in 2013. In a clip of that event, Gruber said the “lack of transparency” in the way the law was crafted was critical. “Basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass,” he said.

Did Gruber do this twice?  Nope; he did it at least three times (and probably many more):

Obamacare’s Jonathan Gruber in third video: ‘Exploitation’ of voter was ‘very clever’
By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Thursday, November 13, 2014

A third clip of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber has emerged, this time of the MIT professor speaking to a University of Rhode Island crowd in 2012 about the health care law’s so-called “Cadillac tax” — and bragging at the utter inability of the American people to comprehend its complexities.

The “Cadillac tax” requires that insurance companies, not individual policy holders, pay the difference between higher- and lower-cost packages — a plan that was pushed into realization by then-Sen. John Kerry, Mr. Gruber said, Fox News reported.

Mr. Gruber then said that a tax on individuals would have been “politically impossible” — but that a tax on companies would prove palatable to voters, mostly because they didn’t understand.

His comments, Fox News reported: “So basically, it’s the same thing. We just tax the insurance companies, they pass on higher prices that offsets the tax break we get, it ends up being the same thing. It’s very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.”

These audio comments followed a clip that was played on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Tuesday evening that showed Mr. Gruber speaking at Washington University in St. Louis about the same “Cadillac tax” and saying it passed “because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference.”

And before that, another clip made the media rounds of Mr. Gruber saying at a different event in 2013 that Obamacare passed due in large part to its “lack of transparency.”

His widely reported comments: “Basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Mr. Gruber has since expressed regret on national television for his comments. But critics of Obamacare say his remarks only prove what many on the left really believe about Americans.

“It confirms people’s greatest fear about the government,” Sen. John Barrasso, Fox News reported. “Remember, it was Nancy Pelosi who said first you have to pass [Obamacare] before you get to find out what’s in it.”

And yes, I know when I said “fascist liberal” I was employing a tautology and saying the same thing twice in a slightly different way.  You know, like the heart of liberal Darwinism’s “survival of the fittest,” where the “fittest” are defined as “the ones who survive.”  Because “fascism” survived as “liberalism.”  And one is as pathologically dishonest as the other.

Democrats are like the people who come up to you with a story to get money.  and you give them money because you buy their pathetic story.  And they walk away with your money mocking you for a stupid idiot because you were actually stupid enough to believe them.

And Democrats are nothing but liars and horrible demon-possessed people.  So you actually MUST be truly stupid to believe them.

Keep in mind, the lies about ObamaCare are now called LEGION, for like the demons that inhabited a man whom Jesus confronted in Mark 5:9, they are many.

“Democrat.”  It sounds good, right?  You know, it sounds like somebody who cares about the will and the voice of the people.

Bullcrap.  Democrats have naked CONTEMPT for the will and the voice of the people.  The people are obstacles, they are pathetically stupid sheep who must be deceived in order to be hauled off to the slaughtering pen.

So what do Democrats do when they are caught in a lie?  They tell ANOTHER LIE, OF COURSE:

After the first tape surfaced — prompting Republican outrage — Gruber went on MSNBC to express regret. On Tuesday, he said: “I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately, and I regret having made those comments.” 

But after Fox News played the second tape, GOP lawmakers said it proves what they’ve been saying all along.

Jonathon Gruber went on MSNBC rather than on Fox News because if he’d gone on the air with Megyn Kelly it would have taken about twenty seconds for everyone to know which one of those two was the “stupid” one.  He knows he has to go to the channel that only STUPID PEOPLE WATCH in order to sell his patent lies.

The “stupid people” are Democrats.  It’s not Republicans that are idiot enough to watch MSNBC.  It’s the Nazi faithful who follow their Führer and await his next message from his bunker (and I don’t give a damn if you call it “the Führerbunker” or “the White House.”  Because it’s the same place by a different name under this “president.”

Now Democrats who relied on this pseudo-intellectual fool’s “analysis” to sell their treason called ObamaCare in honor of the most dishonorable U.S. president who ever lived are now trying to claim they don’t know who THE DAMNED ARCHITECT OF OBAMACARE is.

Bullcrap.  Fortunately now-former Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi knows who he is:

PELOSI: We’re not finished getting all of our reports back from CBO, but we’ll have a side by side to compare. But our bill brings down rates. I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo versus what will happen in our bill for those who seek insurance within the exchange. And our bill takes down those costs, even some now, and much less preventing the upward spiral.

So again, we’re confident about what we set out to do in the bill: middle class affordability, security for our seniors, and accountability to our children.

Fortunately now-former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid knows exactly who this slimebag is:

Democratic Senate Minority Leader-elect Harry Reid called Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber “one of the most respected economists in the world” on the Senate floor during the 2009 push to pass Obamacare.

Lies and hypocrisy are the essence of Democrats.  If you’re not a hypocrite and a liar, you’re not a Democrat.  If you are a liar and a hypocrite, you are either a Democrat or a cockroach Nazi fascist by some other name crawling slithering around over some other part of planet earth.  All you want is big totalitarian government to be imposed by any means necessary.  But whether you’re an ISIS terrorist sawing people’s heads off or Barack Obama, if you are a Democrat you are somebody who views people as an obstacle who must either be exterminated, intimidated or lied to in order to get your way.

“NAZI” stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party.”  And for the record, that party was the “German Workers Party” until Hitler got ahold of it.  Because Satan is a socialist.  It was HITLER who changed it to the National Socialist German Workers Party so that the world could better experience the hell of socialism after the communists gave us the first taste of that wicked, ugly hell.  Neither of those two groups were ever honest about their project, either.  If there was a “National Socialist American Workers Party,” and you don’t believe that would be the damned DEMOCRAT Party, you are worse than a fool to be that kind of ignorant to be so morally idiotic to believe that it is conservatives and Republicans who want to make America “socialist.”

Who votes Democrat?  BAD PEOPLE, that’s who.  People who are selfish and greedy and vote to take the stuff that other people worked for by raw government force, just like the damned Nazis did when they looted other people’s wealth from them.  And they do it the same way the Nazis did; by pitting groups against groups and arguing for instance that white people are thieves and don’t deserve what they have.  Just like the Nazis argued their race-baiting lies that Jews were thieves and didn’t deserve what they have.

Let’s describe the people who vote Democrat:

First there are the welfare turds.  We now have in America generations of families who have never worked – unless you define “work” by “making more babies” in order to collect a larger welfare check.  We have now more “Americans” on welfare than ever before in history.  Which, to put it in Obama campaign-slogan terms means, “Yes we CAN go on welfare and food stamps and join the massively growing Useless Class who do absolutely NOTHING to build America and absolutely EVERYTHING to help collapse it.  100% of this group who can get off their lazy butts long enough to cast a ballot vote “Democrat.”  To wit: the Democrat Party literally purchased their vote.

Then there are the “working class.”  But let’s define what that REALLY means: the UNION class.  The UNION class – because let’s call them what they truly are – survive by “collective bargaining.”  Because throughout history, good workers who actually produced a benefit for their employers have never had to worry about their jobs, but only the lazy, bitter, slacker “workers” were in jeopardy.  The trick to “collective bargaining” has always been to lie (see this whole damned article as a “for example”) to decent workers and deceive them into supporting the lazy, useless slackers who would have otherwise been FIRED in any honest workplace.  And once you get your union in, good luck trying to fire these turds.  And yeah, most of them vote “Democrat,” too.  Because socialist Democrats impose bureaucracies, laws, regulations and judges that make it impossible for employers to do anything but knuckle under to the blue lie agenda of unions and Democrats who alternately climb over each other’s backs to keep grabbing more and more and more share of the pie.

Then you’ve got your intellectual class who live in the ivory towers of the universities.  They actually have a lot in common with the first two groups above; namely, they live off of other people and depend upon government policy for their largesse.  The cost of colleges/universities has inflated FAR more than damned near anything else.  Do you know why?  Because it’s an industry that is subsidized by the government.  Government keeps pumping out “student loans” and increasing the amount of student loans as the costs of education skyrocket.  And so colleges and universities respond by further raising the costs of education – because the students (another group of “stupid people” fwiw) – backed by more and more loan money that will put them in debt for DECADES – can “afford” higher tuition.  And then higher tuition and higher tuition and higher tuition, ad infinitum.

A vote for the Democrat Party is a vote for education costs that you either can’t afford or decide to become a debt-slave to the government for decades to come in order to be able to afford.

And so if you are a “professor” what you really are is a pig with your snout shoved up past your ears into the trough of government socialism.

Your whole way of life depends on it.

And you therefore keep spewing and pumping out propaganda to keep the system flowing so it will keep pouring more of other people’s money into your pig trough.  And you vote Democrat, of course.  Because the Democrat Party is the Party of Pig Troughs.

And then there are the Filthy Rich.

Oh, I know.  You’ve been told that the Filthy Rich are Republicans who steal from you and want to steal more from you and only government can stop them.  The problem with that is it’s just another demon-possessed Democrat lie from the party of demon-possessed Democrat liars.  Just like ObamaCare.  So look over this list of the top fifty political donors and see who the Filthy Rich really support.

What you find is that the Koch Brothers – the face of the evil Filthy Rich Republican – aren’t even ON the list of the top fifty donors.  But a whole lot of Filthy Rich LIBERALS sure are.

You see, just like ObamaCare, FDR’s New Deal was based entirely on lies.  And just like ObamaCare, FDR’s New Deal desperately hurt the American people by prolonging the Great Depression by seven agonizing years.

There’s a passage from Burton Folsom Jr.’s book, New Deal or Raw Deal that comes closer to framing the essence of FDR’s New Deal in a nutshell – and explaining why the Filthy Rich vote Democrat – than anything I can think of:

Let’s start with the New Deal’s effort to promote industrial recovery: the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), which became law in 1933 and was soon shortened to the NRA.  Of that act, Roosevelt said, “History will probably record the National Industrial Recovery Act as the most important and far-reaching legislation ever enacted by the American Congress.”  The president was right: the NRA was revolutionary.  It allowed American industrialists to collaborate to set the prices of their products, and even the wages and hours that went into making them.  Leaders in all industries, from steel and coal to shoulder pads and dog food, were invited to sit down together and write “codes of fair competition” that would be binding on all producers in their industry.   — page 41

This identical tactic was employed again and again in various components of the New Deal: the rich and the powerful were able to cozy up to the politicians and write the laws and regulations that enabled THEM to continue but suppressed their smaller competitors from being able to compete.  In some ways, the brilliance of the scheme was its counter-intuitiveness: the Filthy Rich imposed regulations on themselves that made the cost of doing business dramatically higher.  Because they could afford to pay those higher costs of complying with regulations but their smaller competitors could not.

And thus the Filthy Rich and the Democrat Party became bedfellows: the Democrats got the massive totalitarian fascist control they wanted and the Filthy Rich got to choke out their smaller competitors and retain supremacy.

That tactic is still used to this very day even as the Democrats slanderously demonize the other side as doing what THEY are the ones who do: they keep imposing more and more and more and more sweeping regulations which drive up the cost of doing business.  The small business that would have competed with the bigger companies and corporations can’t afford to comply with the burdens; but the Filthy Rich just hire another regulatory compliance officer and keep sailing along, knowing that they can increase their prices and make the people pay because they have no competition to drive their profits down.

Let me tell you a secret the Democrat Party, their mainstream media propagandists and their pseudo-intellectual leftist professor class don’t want you to know:

Economic inequality in the US reaches levels not seen since Great Depression
Wealth inequality in the US is reaching its most extreme point since just before the start of the Great Depression in 1929, according to a new economic analysis. Even the 1 percent are lagging behind the 0.01 percent.
Christian Science Monitor
By Henry Gass
November 10, 2014

It’s 2014, but when it comes to wealth inequality in the United States, it’s starting to look a lot like 1929.

In the late 1920s, the top 10 percent of Americans possessed 84 percent of the country’s wealth. Since then, wealth inequality in America has followed a U-shaped trajectory, declining through the Great Depression until the mid-1980s, then steadily increasing since then. Now, the richest Americans have a share of the country’s wealth almost big enough to rival those in the late 1920s, according to a new study

The study, from Emmanuel Saez of the University of California at Berkeley and Gabriel Zucman of the London School of Economics, uses a greater variety of sources to paint its picture of wealth inequality in the US than other recent analyses. […]

According to an analysis of data sourced through 2012 – including detailed data on personal income taxes and property tax – Professors Saez and Zucman found that the richest 0.1 percent of Americans have as much of the country’s wealth as the poorest 90 percent. Both groups control roughly 22 percent of total wealth, but while the average wealth of the bottom 90 percent is $84,000, the top 0.1 percent were comprised of 160,700 families with net assets above $20 million, according to their study.

An even closer look at their data has shown that while the growth of the American middle class has been restricted by modest income growth and soaring debt –thanks in large part to the 2008 mortgage crisis – the super-rich have been making significant gains in income and wealth.

While the bottom 90 percent of Americans and the top 0.1 percent control about 22 percent of the country’s wealth each, the top 0.01 percent of Americans now control 11.2 percent of total wealth. That share of the wealth held by the country’s richest 0.01 percent – a group of roughly 16,000 families with an average net worth of $371 million – is the largest share they’ve had since 1916, the highest on record, according to the study.

I think I’ve already explained why that is.

Keep in mind that for the first two years of Obama Democrats controlled the ENTIRE government.  They passed EVERYTHING they wanted to pass and shoved it down the American peoples’ throats – lying as needed, we now know.  Since then, they have held lock step control of the White House or the Führerbunker or whatever the hell Obama calls it when he’s not golfing, and the Senate under Democrat Harry Reid has blocked more Republican-House-passed bills and shut down more amendments than all previous Senate Majority Leaders in the entire history of the republic TIMES TWO.

But we’ve got two more giant lies from the party of the devil going on; namely, number one, that it’s somehow the Republican Party that is the “party of obstruction” when it’s the damn DEMOCRAT Party and number two that income inequality is the fault of Republicans when it has been the result of OBAMA’S vile FDR-esqe policies that have created this disaster.

Democrats – liars, remember – will tell you about “corporate welfare” and they’ll tell you about the big banks being given billions by Republicans.  Just remember that Barack Obama voted for that deal that gave the banks billions in that bailout, that the Tea Party who are Obama’s primary conservative enemies opposed it fiercely and bitterlyIf you’re a Lehman Brothers, or a Morgan Stanley or a JP Morgan or a Citigroup or a Goldman Sachs, well, you know who your Führer is.  But, hey, you’re a Democrat, so you can always just LIE and blame what you did on your opponents, right?

Bush said “I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.”  Whereas it is the intrinsic, pathological NATURE of the Democrat Party to “abandon free market principles.”

Every single Democrat votes to crush the small businesses and therefore exalt the Filthy Rich.  That is the malicious fascist evil of the Democrat Party tradition – and it has been thus for over eighty years.

If you don’t like exalting the Filthy Rich, support conservative Tea Party Republicans.  Well, or else be a Democrat LIAR and lie about it being the fault of the other side who opposes the very thing you want to do and demonize them for doing.

I could add to these groups the people who despise America, the William Ayers and the Professor Ward Churchills and your Black Panther types.  I could add the bitter race-baiters, I could add the people who want to divide America up by gender, or by all the other issues that these people want to divide America with.  I could add the illegal immigrants who have no love for America or its ways but only want to come here to be able to exploit what others built.  There are a lot of horrible, bad, warped, evil people who form the nucleus of the Democrat Party.

But let’s just stick with the three groups I discussed at greater length above, so you can contemplate the incredibly parasitical nature of the Democrat Party that is the party of leeches.

And realize that the quintessential tactic of this diseased party is to lie and lie and lie and then lie some more.

Because to the extent they aren’t truly “stupid,” they know that the American people are increasingly – since Democrats drove God out of this nation – become a bad people.  And it is always the nature of bad people to prefer lies to the truth.

 

 

The Joke That Is The U.S. Unemployment Rate: If We Used Same Metric As When Bush Was President, Unemployment Would Be Almost 12%

May 2, 2014

The day that George Bush said, “See ya, moral morons!” and sailed off into the sunset, the labor participation rate – the rate that measures the percentage of working-age Americans who actually have a JOB – was 65.7%.

Today participation just plunged (again) to match the lowest nadir of 1978.  Which is to say that Obama has taken America back nearly forty years.  And at least we still had a viable damn space program back then.

You need to understand the trick that is “the unemployment rate.”  The trick is when labor participation falls (which is a very, very BAD thing) the unemployment rate measurement artificially drops as well.

You have a negative rate which benefits whenever another rate happens to be measured in the same negative terms.  For example, let’s say I was calculating your “stupid rate.”  And part of the calculation involved multiplying by your IQ level.  And your IQ dropped by several points.  Well, wouldn’t your “stupid rate” go down too?  Of course it would.

288,000 people found jobs this month.  Which is the best showing in like 2 years under Obama.  Let’s forget the fact that that Obama’s most spectacular performance even adequately keep up with basic population growth.  Let’s also forget that 806,000 abandoned the workforce and just gave up hope of ever finding a job in God damn America.

That’s what’s going on with the unemployment numbers you’re seeing.  They’re getting better and better – but that’s because the number of people participating in the workforce is getting lower and lower which is driving a lower and lower measurement for unemployment.  It would be an easy fix: if we were to calculate the non-participation rate (100% minus the participation rate %), you would have a rising number to reflect the rising bad news of low labor participation which would thus provide a lower number for unemployment percentage.

But that would be honest.  And government is DIShonest to the core.

But here is the grim reality, if we were to stick the January 2009 labor participation rate that Bush handed off to Obama into the unemployment rate calculation, unemployment would be nearing 12 percent right now.  Which is Great Depression territory.

James Pethokoukis pointed this out last year (when the labor participation rate was better than it is now):

“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.”

Instead, the left is trumpeting the best unemployment rate since 2008, as if Obama magically solved all of our problems.  And I point out that this massive belief in disinformation is what the Bible prophesied would happen when Antichrist came: the Bible says he will literally be worshiped out of the (false) belief that he solved all the world’s problems.

It’s an amazing thing to watch the formerly greatest nation in the history of the world swiftly descend into pathetic weakness as an increasingly passive, narcissistic and depraved culture either tunes out or believes the lies they are spoon-fed by a mainstream media that provides far more propaganda than journalism.

If you want to know the truth about the U.S. economy under the misrule of Obama and his Democrat stooges, consider this:

“According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money? Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States. Without enough jobs, tens of millions of additional Americans have been forced to reach out to the government for help. At this point, if you can believe it, the number of Americans getting money or benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million.”…Zero Hedge April 29, 2014

One out of every five American families cannot point to a SINGLE member with a damn job.  And do you know what Democrats call that?  An economic miracle.

If you want to know the truth about the U.S. economy under the misrule of Obama and his Democrat stooges, consider this:

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

Virtually EVERY SINGLE JOB Obama has “created” in the aftermath of his ObamaCare hijack-takeover of the health care system was a part-time job.  And overwhelmingly, those jobs are in food service and other low-end, low-wage, dead-end jobs.  And do you know what Democrats call that?  An economic miracle.

Look at America’s collapse relative to China if you want to know the truth.  Consider that China had 43% of the U.S. economic power when Bush was president.  And now they are just about to overtake us less than six years later, thanks to Obama and the Democrat Party control.

The deception and disinformation that now characterizes our president, our White House and the media that is supposed to serve as a check and balance, is amazing.

It wasn’t very long ago that you could say, “Read my lips…” and the average American could finish Bush’s broken promise: “no new taxes.”  That was because the media beat the drums on that broken promise day in and day out for the rest of his second term after Democrats who controlled both the House and the Senate forced him to do so.  Literally, the Democrats who forced Bush to raise taxes politically attacked him for doing the very thing that they had forced him to do.  There is no such parallel for Obama’s many broken promises, such as “you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.”  Obama has broken so many promises that it is beyond unreal; yet few remember because the media has simply refused to do its job of holding a man they basically worship accountable the way they rabidly held the Bushes accountable.  There is no question that Democrats forced Bush to break his promise; there is also no question that Republicans did NOT force Obama to break his many promises on taxes, on ObamaCare, on red lines, or on any of his many lies.  Yet the media tore into the man whose opponents forced him to break his word and have refused to attack the man who simply proved dishonest.  The American people KNOW Obama is a liar, but the media simply will not beat the drum to torment their messiah the way they so happily tormented Republican presidents.

A willingness to tolerate liars and the lies they tell is a prelude to a deceived nation.  And America is very much a deceived nation.

This is God Damn America.  This is America according to the wrath of God as described quite fully in Romans chapter one.  The Democrat Party has pissed in God’s eye and demanded He bring His wrath upon America with their sodomy “marriage” and their murder of God’s babies: one day Democrats will stand before God’s judgment and say they were Christians and Jesus will tell them according to Matthew chapter 25, “I tell you the truth.  When I was hungry and thirsty, these righteous ones fed Me.  When I was in naked, these righteous ones clothed Me.  Not so you.  When I was a baby in My mother’s womb you tore Me to shreds and murdered Me before I could live in your place and die for your sins.  Now depart from Me, you murderers, you worker of iniquity, for I never knew you.  You NEVER gave Me the chance to know you.”

All you have to do to know that America is experiencing the wrath of God as never before is to read about the terrifying weather and the worst droughts we have ever seen as Obama has led America into defying the God of Creation.

But as the Bible says, we live in an age where most of humanity blindly believes a lie, a delusion.  2 Thessalonians chapter 2 describes the coming global big-government dictator in the last days and St. Paul says in verses 11 and 12, “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

St. Paul goes on to describe the last days mindset in chapter three of 2 Timothy:

      1But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, 7always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

And that’s precisely where we’re at as a culture today.  We live in an age of radical human free will – so long as that radical human free will rises up in hostility to God and His righteousness.  If you try to use the “radical free will” that modern culture so values to stand for God and His ways, this sick, twisted, perverted, depraved culture will turn on you with stunning viciousness.

People’s minds are closed to the truth in these final days before the coming of the beast and his total government control that Democrats have been working to create for decades.

One of the foremost characteristics of bad people is that bad people believe lies and reject the truth.  And we live in an age where the lie dominates and the truth is harassed and persecuted.

I know that most of America will continue to believe the lies for the same reason I know that Jesus loves me: “the Bible tells me so.”
