The Full Horror Revealed: We Now Know How America Will Collapse COMPLETELY From Within Due To Obama’s Undermining Of Economy, Security

May 11, 2015

I’m seeing more and more articles popping up from traditionally leftist sources acknowledging the epic, total fail that is, was and has been ObamaCare.  Yesterday, the reliably liberal USA Today front page had an article which I found in the print version titled, “Ky hospitals suffocating under ObamaCare: Facilities facing layoffs – and even shutdowns.”  That article is a living, breathing demonstration that everything the Republican governors who refused ObamaCare and successfully sued to not be forced to implement loudly predicted would happen as the federal government reimbursement rates would ultimately fail to keep up with the exorbitantly expensive costs of implementing ObamaCare.  As merely one example, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said back in 2013:

We will not allow President Obama to bully Louisiana into accepting an expansion of Obamacare.

We have rejected Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion in Louisiana because it would cost Louisiana taxpayers up to $1.7 billion over the next ten years and move nearly 250,000 Louisianians from private coverage to Medicaid.

“The disastrous rollout of Obamacare is a case in point that we don’t need top-down, one-size-fits-all federal mandates, and instead should continue to focus on health care solutions that make sense for Louisiana.

“Obamacare needs to be repealed. The dysfunction of the website and the President’s broken promises on being able to keep your health plan are just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the problems with this law.”

A grossly biased CNN Money article still managed to at least say this much about why Republican governors “stood their ideological ground”:

A number of governors, particularly in red states, have stood their ideological ground and chosen not to expand, citing concerns about the additional financial burden. The federal government will pay for 100% of the expansion for the first three years, then gradually reduce its subsidy to 90% by 2020.

Some governors have said that expansion would involve additional costs that they couldn’t afford and enlarge a program that they consider broken. In many states, however, various analyses show that states would stand to gain millions of dollars by expanding the program, at least initially.

The article I cite above detailing the collapse of the health delivery system in Kentucky begins:

LEXINGTON, Ky. — While Kentucky has gained national prominence as the only Southern state to fully embrace Obamacare, its hospitals say the law has left them facing billions of dollars in cuts and forced them to lay off staff, shut down services and worry for their financial health and, in some cases, survival.

The Kentucky Hospital Association outlined its concerns in a report released Friday called “Code Blue,” saying payment cuts to hospitals are expected to reach nearly $7 billion through 2024. “Kentucky hospitals will lose more money under the Affordable Care Act than they gain in revenue from expanded coverage,” it said, experiencing a net loss of $1 billion by 2020.

“This report provides the real picture of what our hospitals are facing,” KHA President Mike Rust said during a press conference at the Lexington Convention Center, where the group was holding its annual convention. The Medicaid expansion has given many residents health coverage that has brought new money into hospitals, but “the rest of the story is the cuts.”

Hospitals are suffering a net loss, officials said, partly because about three-quarters of newly-insured Kentuckians signed up for Medicaid, which reimburses hospitals less than it costs to treat patients. Nationally, the Congressional Budget Office projected half of newly-insured patients would have private insurance. But Kentucky is a poor state, so most people who signed up for Obamacare — officially the Affordable Care Act — have qualified for expanded Medicaid, which covers those earning less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $33,000 for a family of four.

You just watch how the biased USA Today that wrote off Kentucky’s dilemma as being the result of being “a poor state” fails to understand how EVERY state will ultimately be a “poor state” under ObamaCare.  As an example based on something called a “fact,” consider California.  An article from Covered California – ObamaCare in California – touted that “495,073 people selected health plans during the open-enrollment period ending Feb. 22, 2015.”  It points out the fact that “Nearly nine out of every 10 new enrollees qualified for some level of financial help for 2015,” which means that SOMEBODY ELSE is going to be forced to pay for them.  But here’s the real point: versus those 495,073 people who signed up for ObamaCare by the deadline, “Meanwhile, more than 779,000 consumers enrolled in Medi-Cal from Nov. 15 through Jan. 31. Medi-Cal enrollment continues year-round.”

That means that as of March 5, Medicare accounted for 61% of the total ObamaCare coverage.  And as the article points out, that enrollment continues and therefore continues to expand and grow – all year.  Which means by the end of the year you can damn well bloody BET that the total of Medicare enrollees will be 3/4s of all ObamaCare enrollees.  And nobody is calling California “a poor state.”  Which is another way of saying that the CBO was dreadfully wrong in its horribly flawed analysis.  ObamaCare is a depth charge that will sink and explode right in the bowels of our health care system and ultimately collapse it.

It’s kind of like that line from the movie Unforgiven where a hit man says of his victims, “Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.”  And Will Munny points out the far grimmer truth – “We all got it coming, kid.”  Under ObamaCare, we’re ALL “poor states” now.  And we’ve ALL got it coming to us.

Another article points out the devastation that ObamaCare has actually been to actual health care:

After What 214,000 Doctors Just Did, Obamacare Could Be In Shambles
“The ‘Affordable’ Care Act is anything but…”
James Beattie October 30, 2014 at 11:25am

More than 214,000 doctors will not participate in new plans under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

According to a survey conducted this year by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), a trade association comprised of multi-physician medical practices, “as many as 214,524 American physicians will not be participating in any ACA exchange products.” Reasons abound as to why, but, “chief among them is the fact that exchange plans are more likely to offer significantly lower reimbursement rates than private market plans, confusion among consumers about the obligations associated with high deductibles, and fear that patients will stop paying premiums and providers will be unable to recover their losses”

This is a staggering number, considering the Kaiser Family Foundation reported there are 893,851 active physicians working in the United States.

It’s actually WORSE than doctors merely withdrawing from networks and refusing to provide treatment that would bankrupt them to provide as they lose money with every patient until they are out of business.  Doctors are getting out of medicine altogether as the Washington Times documented as early as 2013:

‘Obamacare’ health care reform ALREADY forcing doctors to close practices

We are facing a shortage of 45,000 primary care physicians, which is the choke point to all of the rest of health care.  Just for starters.  And just as conservatives like me were predicting all along as this wicked, demon-possessed monstrosity became law.

Someone has yet to explain to me how getting everybody a piece of paper that says they have “health insurance” but which means forcing hospitals to close and doctors to leave their health practices helps people get actual healthcare.  Doctors are not accepting these patients with their “ObamaCare.”  And as a result they are swamping the emergency rooms at a greater rate than ever before as the Washington Times documented –

Doctors say emergency room visits have increased since the advent of Obamacare, undercutting one of the key selling points of President Obama’s health care law, which was supposed to ensure a healthier population by pushing consumers to rely on their primary physicians rather than emergency trips to the hospital.

Three out of four ER doctors said they have seen a rise in the number of patients since January 2014, when Obamacare fully kicked in, according to a survey conducted by the American College of Emergency Physicians. More than a quarter of the doctors said they have seen a major surge, and 47 percent said the rise has been slight.

The doctors said they fear a spike in visits could overwhelm their resources: Seven out of 10 said their departments aren’t prepared for a significant increase in patient volume.

The biggest cause is a lack of primary care doctors to treat the increased number of patients with health care coverage, so the patients are turning to the emergency room instead — exactly what wasn’t supposed to happen.

– breaking Obama’s promises.  In just ONE dishonest speech for his dishonest ObamaCare takeover of our once-great health care system, Obama said:

And these stories were personal for me, because I remember my mother worrying about how she was going to deal with her finances when she got very sick.  I remember the fear Michelle and I felt when Sasha was a few months old and she got meningitis.  And we raced to the hospital and they had to give her a spinal tap.  And we didn’t know what was wrong and we were terrified, never felt so scared or helpless in all of my life.  But we were fortunate enough to have good health insurance.

And I remember looking around that emergency room and thinking — what about the parents who aren’t that lucky?  What about the parents who get hit with a bill of $20,000 or $30,000 and they’ve got no idea how to pay for it?  What about those parents whose kids have a chronic illness like asthma and have to keep on going back to the emergency room because they don’t have a regular doctor, and the bills never stop coming?  Who is going to stand up for them?

And in that same speech he again said:

All told, since I signed the Affordable Care Act into law, we have seen the slowest growth in health care costs on record.  (Applause.)

[…]

Right?  Now, the reason we do that is, when uninsured people who can afford to get health insurance don’t, and then they get sick or they get hit by a car, and they show up at the emergency room, who do you think pays for that?

AUDIENCE:  We do.

THE PRESIDENT:  You do, in the form of higher premiumsBecause the hospitals, they’ve got to get their money back somehow.  So if they’re treating somebody who doesn’t have health insurance, they jack up premiums for everybody who does have health insurance.  It’s like a hidden tax of $1,000 per family every year who has got health insurance.  So we’re saying that’s not fair.  If you can afford to get health insurance, don’t dump the costs on us.  The law also requires employers with more than 50 employees to either provide health insurance for your workers or pay a penalty.

So let me ask you Obama’s question with this twist: when ObamaCare forces millions of patients into the emergency rooms he falsely sold his ObamaCare as preventing from happening, WHO PAYS FOR IT???  Emergency room care is THE most cost-inefficient system there IS because it is designed to be for EMERGENCIES.  And when you have a surgeon who is trained to deal with traumatic amputations dealing with a kid’s runny nose, you are bankrupting the system.  You are forcing hospitals to close down or get rid of needed staff to stay in business.

And the ONLY people who have fought to keep people from having no other freaking option for health care but to go to the ermgency rooms that massively add to the cost burden of providing health care were REPUBLICANS who pointed out Obama’s lies.

What has ObamaCare done to hospitals?

Obamacare Forcing Rural Hospitals to Close
Sunday, 15 Mar 2015 07:39 PM
By Greg Richter

The Affordable Care act is having a devastating impact on already strapped rural hospitals, playing a role in many of them shutting their doors, The Washington Post reports.

Forty-eight rural hospitals have closed since 2010 and 283 are in danger, the Post quotes the National Rural Health Association as saying. Most of the shuttered hospitals are in the South.

Other factors are contributing to the problem, but Obamacare is cited as the main reason. The law reduced Medicare payments and how much hospitals are paid for uninsured patients.

The law assumed states would increase Medicaid to cover the gap, but many states did not.

Another factor caused by Obamacare: insurance plans with deductibles so high that people opt to skip some care they previously received. Fewer visits mean less revenue.

As goes ObamaCare, so goes the nation.  That is because health care is one-sixth of the U.S. economy.  And we are so economically weakened that you can’t collapse that one-sixth and not have the other five-sixths go into the toilet bowl with it.

Obama lied.  He sold you the lie that having some piece of paper that said you have health insurance means you have health care even though his vile system has forced doctors out of the networks, forced them to leave medicine altogether, forced hospitals to close down, forced hospitals to fire key medical staff to stay open.  He lied like a demon over and over and over again to sell you what he wanted to impose on you and damn the consequences of his lies.  But we live in the last days before the coming of the beast, and these days are marked by deception and an outright hatred of and contempt for the truth.  And so being right is actually a grave political liability these days.

Our economy is a sham.  Our undemployment rate is an outright lie.  Our unemployment rate is going down ONLY because of the dishonest way with which it is measured.  It does NOT count people who are not working; it ONLY counts people who are actively seeking jobs and using state and federal agencies and benefits.  Which is why we have the following state of affairs:

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: We could continue this conversation and I’m sure we will, but let’s turn to the economy and some really disappointing numbers on the economy this week. Here they are. Only 126,000 jobs were added in March. That’s the weakest hiring in 15 months. Labor force participation dropped to 62.7 percent, matching the lowest since 1978. And the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta estimates first quarter growth at zero, zero percent, flat. George, what’s going on here?

GEORGE WILL, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Well, for the second year in a row they’ve blamed poor quarterly growth on insufficient global warming, that is on winter, on an unusually cold winter. Let your mind go back to November last year. There was job creation of 321,000 jobs and the administration said this is a miraculous achievement and a harbinger of things to come. It wasn’t a harbinger and it wasn’t miraculous. During the Reagan recovery there were 23 months of job creation over 300,000. Reagan had a month of job creation of 1 million and this was at a time when there were 75 million fewer Americans. Now, never mind zero growth. We are now being told really that two percent growth may be the new normal. If so, that’s a disaster because every day, today, yesterday, tomorrow, every day between now and 2030, 10,000 more baby boomers become eligible for Social Security and Medicare. If we have two percent growth, the crisis of the welfare state, the crisis of the private sector being able to throw off the revenues, to pay the bills for the promises we’ve made to ourselves becomes impossible.

WALLACE: Just tell again that the labor force participation stat that you have, if it were what it was at the beginning of the Obama administration.

WILL: If the workforce participation rate today were as high as it was on the day Barack Obama was inaugurated, the unemployment rate in this country would be 9.7 percent, we wouldn’t be complaining about the bad recovery because we wouldn’t call it a recovery

The labor participation rate measures the percentage of working-age Americans with jobs.  And I have documented year after year the rapist Obama has been to actual JOB CREATION.

But again, those are simply facts.  And facts are the most useless things in modern America.  Because we have become a bad, toxic, wicked people who prefer lies to the truth and who will not accept the truth.

We don’t have anywhere NEAR enough Americans working to support the massive and increasing-in-size tsunami of people who don’t have jobs and frankly don’t particularly care that much that they don’t have jobs because they’re parasites who demand and who have been trained by Democrats to demand that OTHER people support them even as they have been trained to blame and hate the very people who are supporting them.

Our economy is a shell game.  We face debts that can’t even be compared to a mountain anymore, they are so massive and so high and steep and so staggering and so dangerous.

We hear our debt is $18 trillion now.  Notwithstanding that Barack Obama was a truly demon-possessed hypocrite and slandering liar when he viciously attacked George Bush when it was nine trillion –

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.” — Barack Obama, 3 July 2008

– our actual debt is so far beyond $18 trillion it’s not even FUNNY.  Try this figure for size: $127 trillion (which is just unfunded liabilities and which doesn’t even bother to COUNT the $18 trillion):

The federal unfunded liabilities are catastrophic for future taxpayers and economic growth. At usdebtclock.org, federal unfunded liabilities are estimated at near $127 trillion, which is roughly $1.1 million per taxpayer and nearly double 2012’s total world output.

I submit that the actual figure is higher than that, northward of $222 trillion.  We are a broken nation with a broken financial system covering up its nakedness with flimsy paper that will blow away on a cold day when the wind is howling and leave us with nothing but poverty and devastation and rioting such as the world has never seen.

Even now, our interest payments on our massive debt are guaranteed to skyrocket and leave us crippled and unable to pay for anywhere NEAR the commitments we have made.  But it gets worse.

One day, soon, the United States’ status as the U.S. dollar being the Reserve Currency of planet earth will be terminated.  And we will be devastated overnight.  We can recklessly, wickedly borrow more and more and more money to finance the Democrat Party’s and Barack Obama’s socialism for only so long.  We can’t pay for it.  It’s insane that we keep doing it.  One day we will go to bed with all the talking heads saying everything will be okay and we will wake up to complete ruin.  As we speak, all the top economic nations below us – and above us, given the fact that China has under Obama topped the United States as the #1 economy are agitating to topple that status won as a result of World War II being yanked away.  One day, soon, it WILL be.

We are a morally collapsed nation that will soon economically collapse and we will then see the true wickedness and greed and bitterness and hate come out that I see already present in this nation that was once based on “In God We Trust” as “one nation, under God” but now exists to glorify and worship homosexual sodomy and the murder by abortion of more than sixty million of our own most innocent Americans in the Holocaust-dwarfing abortion mills of the Democrat Party.

56,125,262 human beings on all sides of the war, both civilian and military, perished in the bloodiest war in the history of the human race, World War II.  And under Obama and 100 percent because of the Democrat Party Holocaust machine America has murdered more of its own most innocent human beings than that godawful, vicious, vile war could.  And God is going to hold us to account for it.  You read Psalm 139 and you tell me I’m wrong.  Because your only logical option if you want to defend abortion is to stick your middle finger up at God and declare that you WELCOME His wrath on your head and on the heads of your children.  And it’s coming.

You read Romans chapter one and you tell me that the Barack Obama betrayal on marriage and the Democrat Party’s depraved homosexual SODOMY of the marriage that was instituted by GOD isn’t the trigger for God’s wrath against a sick society.  If you bother to READ God’s Word, your only logical option if you want to defend the perversion of homosexuality is to stick your middle finger up at God and declare that you WELCOME His wrath on your head and on the heads of your children.

But that collapse isn’t merely going to be economic.  We’re seeing that now, too.

Barack Obama has utterly failed to keep America safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism, even going to the insane extent of denying such a threat even EXISTS.

Now, as Obama’s spiritual mentor and former pastor for 23 years who infamously screamed “No, no, NO!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!” once put it: “our chickens have come home to roost.”

We are FAR more vulnerable to jihadist terrorism than we have ever been thanks to Obama’s lies, thanks to his “JV Team” analogy that dismissed a clearly metastasizing threat to America, thanks to his “Osama bin Laden in dead and al Qaeda is on the run” lies.

I turn to yet another dismaying recent development: the shocking, catastrophic defeat that the United States is now suffering in Iraq and will almost certainly suffer soon in Afghanistan.  Only a couple of years ago, our nation’s leaders were claiming credit for “decimating” al Qaeda and saying that the terrorists were on the run.  Since 2010 there has been a 58% increase in the number of terror groups – and the number of jihadists have DOUBLED.  Al Qaeda is larger, stronger and controls more territory than at any time in history.  And an organization that is universally recognized as being even WORSE than al Qaeda – the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS – has now created the caliphate in the heart of the Middle East that Osama bin Laden dreamed of.  Back in 2005, US intelligence captured a letter from the top al Qaeda leadership that put the aims of al Qaeda into four stages: 1) Drive America out of Iraq; 2) create a caliphate; 3) use that as a base to attack the United States and other countries; 4) attack Israel.  And we have watched them succeed beyond all of the worst possible scenarios.  They’re coming right back at us and we’re now far too weary, weak and divided to fight them.

The FBI director’s terrifying warning that yeah, they ARE coming after us in terrifying numbers:

There may be as many as thousands of people inside the United States consuming online “poison” from ISIS alone, and, “I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there,” FBI director James Comey warned today, referring to one of the men who opened fire outside of an event in Texas earlier this week celebrating artists’ portrayals of the Prophet Mohammad.

“We have a very hard task” in trying to identify and stop anyone inspired to launch an attack inside the U.S. homeland, Comey told ABC News’ Pierre Thomas and a small group of reporters.

Such efforts have become particularly challenging because ISIS has reconfigured and redefined terrorist recruitment, according to Comey. In fact, while the FBI is trying to find that so-called needle in a haystack, “increasingly the needles are invisible to us,” he said.

As recently as two years ago, someone in the United States who wanted to consume “radical poisonous propaganda” would have to seek that out on the Internet, most likely on a jihadist web forum. So the FBI focused its investigative efforts on those jihadist web forums, Comey said.

But “that has changed dramatically, especially with [ISIS] and their use of social media,” where on phones in people’s pockets they ask Americans and other foreigners “to travel to the so-called caliphate to fight” but simultaneously say, “If you can’t travel, kill where you are,” according to Comey.

“It’s almost as if there is a devil sitting on the shoulder saying, ‘Kill, kill, kill, kill’ all day long,” he said. “[They are] recruiting and tasking at the same time. … In a way, the old paradigm between ‘inspired’ and ‘directed’ breaks down here.”

And with that distinction “no longer relevant,” is it all the more challenging for the FBI to determine whether someone seeking jihadist propaganda online or even promoting themselves is “a talker or a doer,” as Comey described it.

And their talk is “fundamentally transforming” into ACTION to kill Americans wherever they are.

The sober and despicable fact that our intelligent resources are no so inadequate that a jihadist preparing to launch a violent attack against America can now openly and brazenly boast online about his mission for Allah without our now inadequate system even KNOWING about it:

The official, who would speak about the continuing investigation only on condition of anonymity, said that although Mr. Simpson had long been under F.B.I. scrutiny, he had not appeared to be preparing for violence. “There are so many like him that you have to prioritize your investigations,” the official said.

The Secretary of Homeland Security’s sober warning:

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said America is dealing with a “new environment” in which a lone-wolf terrorist could “strike at any moment.”

Johnson said, “We’re very definitely in a new environment, because of ISIS’s effective use of social media, the Internet, which has the ability to reach into the homeland and possibly inspire others.”

“Because of the use of the Internet, we could have little or no notice in advance of an independent actor attempting to strike.”

He added, “We’re very definitely in a new phase in the global terrorist threat where the so-called lone wolf could strike at any moment. Which is why the FBI, in my judgment, has done an excellent job of getting to those who are attempting to travel to Syria, who commit overt facts in furtherance of material support to terrorism. It is a new environment, but we are not discouraging  Americans from doing the things that they do on a daily basis in our society.”

This is a pretense and a lie.  We’ve had the Internet for quite a long time now, ever since another Democrat liar named Al Gore claimed he’d invented the damn thing about 20 years ago.  This isn’t because of the internet any more than our godawful economy is the result of “inadequate global warming” a.k.a. winter; this is the result of an epic fail of a president who has placed FAR more resources into climate change than he has on the actual war while he literally claimed he’d WON the war that he claimed didn’t even exist in the first place.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security points out that under Obama terrorism has grown viral:

Top U.S. officials and lawmakers on Sunday intensified concerns about the growing threat of jihad-inspired terror attacks against the United States, after last week’s attempt in Texas and the dire FBI warning that followed.

“I think there’s been an uptick in the stream of threats out there,” Texas GOP Rep. Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We’re seeing these directives on almost a daily basis. It’s very concerning. Terrorism has gone viral.”

Mind you, we’re not even prepared to handle actual viruses anymore as this administration continues to fail its most basic duty to its people.

Do you know what I’ve noticed?  I’ve watched snippets of the Islamic State’s recruiting videos as they’ve been presented on the news.  And I’ve noticed a striking similarity to the violent video games that dominate our culture.  The graininess, the colors, watching these Islamic State videos is like playing a video game.  They’re beaming it into the heads of American kids who otherwise stand for nothing: you can actually LIVE your video game fantasies!  Just picture yourself standing on a tank firing the machine gun, oh yes, guns a’blazing in a hail of glory.  And they don’t give a flying damn if you kill for Allah or to live out your sick, twisted and violent video game fantasies.  They just want blood.

I’ve written about that: liberalism and secular humanism has produced a toxic, nihilistic generation that is characterized by cynicism, pessimism and a profound dislike of reality.  I wrote a nice two-part article that after you read you won’t be one bit surprised at the above popularity of American jihadism.

I’ve pointed out in past articles that our “strategy” for Islam is based on a lie that itself is based on a terrifying reality that if you follow the Qur’an and the actual teachings and life of Muhammad, YOU WILL BE A MURDEROUS TERRORIST just like Muhammad was.  I’ve also pointed out that there’s another terrifying reason why Democrats have been so determined to shelter these violent jihadists: that Democrats and Muslim terrorists alike ultimately want the same thing: a Government-as-God that has all power to decide/dictate who wins and who loses, who pays and who gets the wealth redistributed to them, who lives and who dies, who is good and who is evil.  And Democrats are actually the kind of colossal moral idiots who foolishly believe they can reason with these people, just as Obama is trying to foolishly and wickedly do with Iran over its nuclear program.

And all Obama has been able to do is blame Christianity.  After all, didn’t Christians do something like a thousand years ago?  So why mention what Muslims did last night?  Obama is a true moral coward who is only capable of pumping out moral equivocation to actually JUSTIFY jihadism for the wrongs we did to them notwithstanding the whole thousand-years-ago thing.

I have pointed out that the secular humanism of Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party ultimately stand for NOTHING.  They have no transcendent moral values and no transcendent beliefs worth fighting and dying for.  They will negotiate and compromise and surrender because that’s all they have and all they ever WILL have.

And we’re seeing right now that the only people liberals WILL fight are their fellow Americans as they strive to incite every possible issue into a new reason to riot, to undermine America, to tear this nation apart on the basis of race, of gender, of sexual preference, of income class, of you name it, in their search for a political coalition that they can exploit toward more political power.

We’re going to collapse because God isn’t God if we DON’T collapse.  We’re going to collapse because our vote for Obama, our vote for homosexual marriage, our vote for the murder of sixty million innocent babies, was a VOTE to collapse.  We’re going to collapse because America isn’t IN Bible prophecy and either won’t exist or won’t be relevant in any way, shape or form in the last days.  Because unlike any other nation, we once uniquely made a covenant with God and we broke that covenant and God is going to hold us to account for our betrayal.  We’re going to collapse because the beast is coming.

But mark my words: we are GOING to collapse.  And it will be entirely from within because it was from within and the depravity within our own hearts that we destroyed ourselves.

 

In An Age Of Stalinist Deception, ONE FACT That Proves That Obama Has Been Driving The U.S. Economy Into Collapse

April 6, 2015

I’ve been warning about this – (for example see “Rapidly Worsening Labor Participation Rate Now Lowest In More Than THIRTY YEARS Under Obama’s Failed Regime. PLEASE LOOK AT HISTORY!!!“) – for some time, but it’s every bit as clear as ever.  Sadly, few are pointing it out.

Barack Hussein Obama is proclaiming his economic miracle when the truth is anything BUT.

Fewer and fewer Americans are working or even bothering to TRY to work.  Many have been crushed into despair by Barack Obama’s shockingly poor economy.  But you wouldn’t know it watching or reading the mainstream media.

But George Will popped the bubble with one fact that he reported:

George Will: If Workforce Participation Today Was As High As Day Obama Was Inaugurated, Unemployment Would Be 9.7%

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: We could continue this conversation and I’m sure we will, but let’s turn to the economy and some really disappointing numbers on the economy this week. Here they are. Only 126,000 jobs were added in March. That’s the weakest hiring in 15 months. Labor force participation dropped to 62.7 percent, matching the lowest since 1978.

Do you hear that?  Our REAL unemployment rate is ten percent at BEST.  And it’s actually quite a bit higher considering the fact that nearly 100 million working-age Americans in a nation consisting in 318 million total Americans DO NOT HAVE A JOB:

Americans Not in Labor Force Exceed 93 Million for First Time; 62.7% Labor Force Participation Matches 37-Year Low
April 3, 2015 – 8:58 AM

(CNSNews.com) – The number of Americans 16 years and older who did not participate in the labor force–meaning they neither had a job nor actively sought one in the last four weeks–rose from 92,898,000 in February to 93,175,000 in March, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That is the first time the number of Americans out of the labor force has exceeded 93 million.

Also from February to March, the labor force participation rate dropped from 62.8 percent to 62.7 percent, matching a 37-year low.

Five times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but March’s 62.7 percent, which matches the participation rate seen in September and December of 2014, is the lowest since February of 1978.

labor chart

BLS employment statistics are based on the civilian noninstitutional population, which consists of all people 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution such as a prison, mental hospital or nursing home.

In March, the civilian noninstitutional population was 250,080,000 according to BLS. Of that 250,080,000, 156,906,000 — or 62.7 percent — participated in the labor force, meaning they either had or job or had actively sought one in the last four weeks.

The lower the labor participation rate is, the smaller the percentage of Americans who are working.

As I pointed out in my article from May of 2012, Obama has driven the labor participation rate number down, and down, and down until he’s bottomed out at CARTER’S FAILED PRESIDENCY.

But it’s really even WORSE than Jimmy Carter, because we had a different way of life when Carter was president and eroding America with his fool liberalism.

We had a low labor participation rate in the 1950s because we had a very different culture and social structure, where people got married – you know, to someone of the opposite sex – and the husband tended to work while the wife stayed at home and managed the household and the children.  So you had a labor participation rate in the 50 percentile because half the adult population wasn’t in the official “workforce” even though she worked her butt off preparing a special place called “home” for her family.

Democrats pissed all over that way of life.  It’s gone, now.

Now, if you’re a woman, you’d damn well better have testicles, or at least have a job the way men used to have.  You need to either kill your babies in Democrats’ abortion mills or else abandon them so you can be a wage-slave so you can work harder and harder for less and less pay under a lying Obama who promised one thing but delivered the opposite.  For example, Obama promised more “economic equality,” but what did this lying hypocrite weasel from the political party of lying hypocrite weasels deliver?  the WORST economic INequality in American history, is all.  Obama promised you a higher standard of living, but what did he actually deliver?  Wage stagnation and falling incomes the like we’ve never seen before, that’s what.

And yet Barack Obama continues to preach himself as the solution to the very problems he’s made the worst they’ve ever been.  And the media reports his blathering nonsense like he shouldn’t be laughed out of every single room he walks into.

Now that we have men and women nearly equally participating in the economy, our labor participation rate ought to be ninety-five percent to have the unemployment rate Obama is deceitfully boasting about.  Because after, all, if the unemployment rate is 5.5% the way Obama says it is, shouldn’t that mean that 94.5% of working-age Americans are, you know, WORKING???

We are being lied to – and insanely we’re being lied to by something that is calling itself “a free press” – worse than any generation or nation has EVER been lied to before.  And more Americans are foolishly believing their propaganda than, say, Soviet citizens who knew damn well they were being lied to like the sheep that liberal big government socialism had forced them to become.

If Fox News reports the truth, don’t worry; because about a thousand-and-one other mainstream media outlets will drown it out with gobbledygook.

It’s like what we just experienced with Rolling Stone: we had a failure at EVERY SINGLE LEVEL of the “journalistic” process; but not ONE person at Rolling Stone is being fired because Rolling Stone is a mainstream media liberal publication that produces lies for a generation that desperately wants to be lied to so they can keep believing that they’re not being led to their dooms and they won’t burn in hell the moment they leave their depraved lives on this earth behind.

Just imagine for a moment if such a magazine had tried to write a story about the opposite point of view – you know, the so-called “right wing” version, of the same story: imagine if a magazine had sent a reporter out to write a story about the “fact” that every woman who reported a rape was in fact a damn liar.  And they based their entire story on the claims of one man who turned out to be so full of lies it was beyond unreal, but up and down the line no one in the chain from “journalist” to “editor-in-chief” ever said something like, “Hey, wait a minute, this story is a load of crap!”

Let me tell you what would have happened: it wouldn’t have just been a reporter fired – something which Rolling Stone announced they WON’T do, fwiw, and in fact won’t fire ANYONE – but the whole magazine would have been bankrupted and gone out of business.  Or else rabid liberals would have firebombed the place into extinction.

But it’s okay.  It was liberal Rolling Stone and they published reliable liberal drivel, just like the “Hands up, Don’t shoot!” thing was liberal drivel and the hysterical and rabid garbage that was fabricated about the “anti-gay” law in Indiana was liberal drivel.  Did it matter that the law didn’t even MENTION gay marriage???  Of course not.  Because the ends justify the means and it’s literally okay to lie if you’re a liberal journalist and your lie advances a liberal narrative.  And so there’s nothing to see here, folks.  We issued a stern “tsk-tsk” and we’re moving on so they can continue doing the same thing tomorrow and the next day and the day after that.  And all the rest of us liars a.k.a. “journalists” can do the same thing with all our “stories,” too.

We just found out that Harry Reid, as Senate Majority Leader, directly slandered the presidential candidate of the opposing Republican Party with what we all now know was a LIE.  What outcry would there have been had the Senate Minority Leader at the time (Republican Mitch McConnell) had so lied and so slandered Barack Obama and claimed that it was a fact that Obama had broken the law and had not paid any taxes in ten years???  What would the outcry for his resignation had been?  But Harry Reid is smug about his lies because they were successful and if you are a Democrat lies are all you have and all you ever will have.  So it’s okay and the media aren’t screaming for anybody’s hide but the next Republican scapegoat such as the governor of Indiana.

So our unemployment rate is 5.5% and Obama is an economic wizard even though so many fewer Americans are actually working than when George W. Bush was president it’s laughable.

But it’s okay for the liberal media to lie.  Because their fellow socialist propaganda mills before them always lied, too.

Because we live in the age of “the mystery of lawlessness” where the righteous are stunned into helpless silence as evil metastasizes and ascendant wickedness triumphs all around them – and we live in an age of deception just before the Antichrist comes and the Democrat Party leads us to accept the big-government mark of the beast so the government can finally and completely seize control over the economy as they have always wanted.

Obama is a liar – and a demon-possessed liar at that – across the board, on both the domestic and the foreign fronts.  This is the fool who when anyone with ears to hear and eyes to see knew otherwise called I.S.I.S. a “JayVee team” even as they were seizing cities in Iraq on their way to creating a caliphate.  And then lied about it.  This is the fool who “reset relations” with Russia and we now have a Cold War reignited as Putin sized-up Obama and saw a coward and a fool who was too dumb to understand and to politically correct to react to evil.  And they are provoking us on every front across the board.  This is the fool who repeatedly claimed that Yemen and Sudan are examples of his “success” when they prove what an abject failure and fraud and fool that he clearly is.  And this is the fool who wants to give Iran a nuclear bomb and hegemony over the Middle East so it can expand its terror-by-proxy even as he idiotically and dishonestly claims he’s doing the very opposite.  Just like all the other times his failed policies and plans have produced the very opposite of what he claimed they would produce.

I now understand something – thanks to Barack Obama’s epic fail – that I never understood before about the coming Antichrist.  Namely, the Antichrist won’t be some masterful genius; rather, he will be a masterful liar who will be able to create illusions of success even as he’s wildly failing; he will be able to scapegoat other groups and blame them for why things keep getting worse, rather than better; he will be a liar and a deceiver and a slanderer without shame, without honor, without integrity and without virtue.  In other words, he will be just like Barack Obama who is the coming Antichrist’s Useful Idiot-in-Chief.  Except he’ll be an even more skilled liar and an even more masterful slanderer.

And the media, of course, will help the coming Antichrist with massive propaganda.  Just as they are helping Obama spread his lies and his slanders now.

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.”

 

 

 

Extending Jobless ‘Insurance’ Benefits And Just Jobs In General: When Will Dishonest Democrats Finally Just Tell The Dang Truth???

February 14, 2014

Here’s the question that demagogic Democrats ask Republicans: “How can you be so heartless to cut off people in need who, for no fault of their own, lost their jobs?”

Here’s the question Republicans ought to respond with: “How do you think having lifetime jobless “insurance” benefits will work out for those who no longer ever need to get a job?”

Let me begin with a couple of quotes:

Here’s one from a liberal HuffPo article titled, “It’s Not Just Poor People Getting Hosed When Congress Lets Unemployment Insurance Expire“:

When lawmakers skipped town for Christmas break this year, they left unresolved what to do about federal unemployment insurance. The benefits, available to jobless workers who had used up six months of state-funded compensation, had been running since the Great Recession hit in 2008. Early in 2012, Congress began scaling back the duration of federal benefits as the economy improved. There was uncertainty as to what would happen at the end of this year with even better economic conditions. Now, with the program set to lapse, recipients such as Torian are left gaming out a petrifying next few months.

Point: Federal “long-term unemployment insurance” has been going on for going on seven damn years.  And Congress has just kept extending it over and over and over and over.  And of course you can NEVER end it because the day you do, the poor, poor workers will be “hosed.”  So you have to keep providing these benefits forever.  Or else you’re cruel.

Here’s one from Wikipedia on unemployment benefits in the United States as contrasted with European socialism:

The standard time-length of unemployment compensation payment is six months, although extensions to this are possible for certain individuals. Once this six-month time period elapses and payment ceases, an individual who remains unemployed is at risk of falling into poverty, as they no longer have a safety net upon which to rely. This contrasts with the situation of the unemployed in most European countries (such as France, Germany and the United Kingdom), where unemployment benefit is of unlimited duration so long as the individual remains unemployed.

Okay, so we have America where we’re willing to help you – to a point.  And then you’ve got to stand on your own two feet and get a job, even if you don’t WANT to get a damn job.  And even if you have to take a job that you feel is “beneath” you.  Because that’s what grown-up Americans do.  And then we have European socialist nanny-statism, which says, “You NEVER have to grow up.  You NEVER have to take responsibility for yourself.  It takes a village.  Blah blah blah socialist blah.”

America used to be like America.  Because we were the greatest nation on earth and no one else even came close.  But now we’re a mediocre “mediocracy” like all the other socialist realms where everybody should be the same and anybody who tries to be better ought to be punished for the effort.

Here’s the bottom line: Democrats keep wanting to extend jobless “insurance” month after month and year after year after year without end.  And they never have to answer the question: “At what point is it immoral to keep extending these “benefits”?

Should I get an unemployment check for a year?  How about two years?  Is five years too long?  How about ten years?  Do I hear twenty-five years?  Hey, let’s go deep and say sixty years of unemployment bennies.  Is THAT too long?

Snotty, dishonest Democrats will undoubtedly respond, “No one is talking about unemployment benefits for ten years” (They can’t say “five years” anymore because they’ve ALREADY EXTENDED THEM FOR THAT LONG).  But consider the following question in the following paragraph.  Because:

You know what I want to hear from Democrats?  I want to hear them say, “If you continue to receive unemployment “insurance” for more than _____________ (please fill in the damn blank, Democrat), you are a lousy person.  You are a slacker and a freeloader.  And only a foolish and depraved society would give you one more nickel.”  I want to hear them put a number in that blank.

But they won’t.  They NEVER will.

What they WILL do is month after month, year after year continue to demonize and demagogue and slander Republicans who are reluctant to provide welfare for life.

Now the Democrat Party’s “War on Workers” is finally actually starting – just STARTING – to come out into the open:

(CNSNews.com) – The subsidies that help low-income people buy expensive health insurance are a ‘disincentive for people to work,” Douglas Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, told Congress on Wednesday.

“What the Affordable Care Act does, is to provide subsidies focused on lower- and lower-middle-income people to buy health insurance. And in order to encourage a sufficient number of people to buy an expensive product like health  insurance, the subsidies are fairly large in dollar terms. Those subsidies are then withdrawn over time — withdrawn from people as their income rises.

And by providing heavily subsidized health insurance to people with very low income, and then withdrawing those subsidies as income rises, the (Affordable Care) Act creates a disincentive for people to work, relative to what would have been the case in the absence of that Act,” Elmendorf told the House Budget Committee.

Dishonest, demon-possessed Democrats – caught like cockroaches in the kitchen when the light finally gets turned on – are actually saying it’s a GOOD thing that ObamaCare will destroy at least 2.3 million jobs (mind you, I assure you it will be FAR worse than that.  And the CBO has been reliably late to comprehend the horror of this murderous and evil ObamaCare law).  Believe it or not, the Democrats who demonized Republicans as “job killers” are now actually openly saying that it is a GOOD thing that ObamaCare will drive another 2.5 million Americans out of the workforce.  Because now the people who have the right to choose to murder their very own children will also enjoy the right to choose whether to work or accept the welfare dole and mooch off of other people’s money for a life of mediocrity and failure.

Democrats are pathologically dishonest.  On the one hand, they claim with their Pseudo-Messiah Obama that they have improved the economy so damn much that unemployment is now only 6.7 percent.  But on the other hand, they’re evil, not stupid, and so they know that real unemployment in this country is really well over ten percent under their Failure-in-Chief and his disastrous and stupid and frankly wicked and immoral policies.

Even the uberliberal Huffington Post, as leftwing as it is, refutes the Democrat talking point:

President Barack Obama took pride in presiding over the nation’s “lowest unemployment rate in over five years” during his State of the Union address on Tuesday. But while this statement is true — the jobless rate dropped to 6.7 percent in December — it’s not exactly something to write home about.

That’s because a large part of the most recent decline in December was the result of 347,000 people giving up the search for work entirely and dropping out of the labor force. Such a decision helps the unemployment rate look better on paper, since it pushes those people out of the unemployment picture altogether. But in reality, it is not a great sign for the millions struggling to find work.

I’ve been writing about this in articles such as “Rapidly Worsening Labor Participation Rate Now Lowest In More Than THIRTY YEARS Under Obama’s Failed Regime.  PLEASE LOOK AT HISTORY!!!”  And that rate is no longer “more than thirty years”; it’s now the worst in over THIRTY-SIX YEARS.  We haven’t seen anything like this since Jimmy Damn Communist Carter was busy destroying America with his own failed socialist experiments back in 1978.

I pointed out quite a while back about the “Unemployment Rate: At ‘The Rate’ We’re Going, We’ll Have 0% Unemployment But No One Will Have An Actual Job.”  I predicted that THREE FULL YEARS ago.  Tell me how I was wrong, lying liberals.

Barack Obama is a pathologically dishonest liar.  But because he is protected by pathologically dishonest liars in the mainstream media, he is able to keep pumping out total crap.  But meanwhile he is driving ordinary people into the dust each and every month of his disastrous curse-from-God (as in “God damn America!”) presidency.

Things are just going so good under Obama that we closed out the year with headlines such as: “Applications for Unemployment Benefits Experiences Largest Increase in Over a Year.”

And then we get into January and February and we hear this from the always reliably rabidly ideological Los Angeles Times:

Retail sales fall unexpectedly in January
Amid bitter weather, sales slump a seasonally adjusted 0.4% in January from December, missing Wall Street’s expectations, Commerce Department reports.
By Tiffany Hsu
February 13, 2014, 6:16 p.m.

This year’s streak of nasty weather is wreaking havoc on the economy, causing plunging worker productivity, soaring heating bills, canceled flights, damaged crops and frozen hiring.

But the bitter conditions, which last month left thousands stranded in Atlanta and this week is pounding the eastern part of the country with snow, have dealt a particularly severe blow to retailers.

The tempests couldn’t have come at a worse time. In January, as businesses struggled through a weak post-holiday period in a month that already tends to be slow, industry sales slid by their largest margin in 18 months.

And “February does not offer much hope for relief,” according to a report from Credit Suisse.

Maggie Taylor, an analyst with Moody’s, said she’s spent two days in each of the last three weeks stranded at her New Jersey home because of the weather. She’s tried to run errands but has been stymied by closed stores. There’s so much snow she can’t even see her front stoop.

“The consumer is coming back slower than we expected with or without the storms,” she said. “But this winter, the storms appear so extreme that we don’t believe retailers are using them as an [unreasonable] excuse. People are staying home.”

The Commerce Department said Thursday that retail sales slumped a seasonally adjusted 0.4% in January from December, missing Wall Street’s expectations of flat results. Compared with the same month a year earlier, sales were up 2.6%, disappointing many analysts.

The government also revised down sales for the prior two months. December sales, which had previously been reported as a 0.2% month-to-month increase, were changed to reflect a 0.1% decline.

Don’t worry: they’ll have an excuse for March and April, too.  I’m guessing they’ll go back to their favorite straw man the Republican Party.

We conservatives have been openly MOCKING the left for the constant and incessant use of their favorite economic adjective under Obama: “unexpected.”  They expected a Utopia under their messiah and just can’t figure out why the streets aren’t paved with gold yet because they know with the faith of true Allah Akbar believers that socialism WORKS and “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

I can’t help but laugh as I think of the Soviet Union, which shortly before its collapse had the balls to blame seventy years’ worth of bad weather after their policies resulted in perpetual famine, having executed all the other viable scapegoats.

That is ALL Obama has done.  Blame, blame, blame, demonize, slander and lie like no other human being in all of history has lied.  All liberals do and all they have EVER done is make false promises, then blame Bush, blame House Republicans (because they should have worshiped Obama and they refused to), then blame “unexpected.”  And ultimately if they get to grab the sort of totalitarian power their communist heroes in the USSR did they’ll blame seventy years’ worth of bad weather.  Because that’s who they are: a nation of Cains who refuse to accept responsibility for the horror they cause.

Do you want to know the TRUTH about what Democrats actually want?  THIS is what they want:

Let me remind you this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

Democrats don’t want jobs.  If they wanted jobs, they wouldn’t be at war with the people who CREATE jobs.  What Democrats want is CONTROL.  They want the fascist control of society such that the people are beholden to THEM, such that THEY get to “punish their enemies and reward their friends,” such that they get to pick the winners and the losers, such that they get to decide whom the IRS targets and whom the IRS passes.  THAT is what they want.

Democrats don’t want you to have a damn job; they want you to be on welfare so you’ll have to keep voting Democrat forever in order to get your next meal.  That is ALL they want.

And the last six miserable years under Obama proves that they are increasingly GETTING what they want.

I wish Democrats would just have the honesty and integrity to preach their offer: in exchange for wiping out any chance at independence and genuine success in life, we’ll give you a menial subsistence existence as long as you keep waiting for your check in the mail and vote for the party that made it all possible for you to be a permanent parasite.

Sniff Test: Does It Feel Like Unemployment Has Improved By 6% In Last 60 Days? Reported By Same Government That Said Libya Wasn’t Terrorist Attack?

October 6, 2012

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???

Or how about just the fact that the number of actual jobs recorded (114,000) fails to come CLOSE to the working-age population growth of 206,000?

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.

Who Do You Trust More To Tell Us About Unemployment? Big Brother (8.3%) Or Gallup (9.1%)?

March 10, 2012

Which turned out to be more accurate?

We must win the war, and we can win it! Each man and each woman, the entire German people, must call forth their utmost in work, courage, and discipline.” — Nazi government, January 1945

Or:

I am writing this from cell 24. Outside a new Germany is being created. Many millions are rejoicing. Hitler is promising everyone precisely what they want. I think when they wake to their sobering senses, they will find they have been led by the nose and duped by lies.” — Jailed journalist Stephen Laurant, circa 1935

Sometimes it is vital to pick the right people or the right agencies to believe.

Right now the Obama government is telling us that the unemployment rate is 8.3 percent and about to drop even further after numerous positive developments.

That view is not shared by leading polling organization Gallup:

Gallup: Unemployment at 9.1%, But 19% Need Jobs
Thursday, 08 Mar 2012 02:19 PM
By Martin Gould

The unemployment rate shot up by half a percentage point in February, according to figures released by the polling organization Gallup on Thursday.

The jump from 8.6 percent in January to 9.1 percent last month is the largest month-by-month increase in more than a year, Gallup said. It is the highest rate since August.

Gallup’s figures differ from the official government unemployment rate because they do not adjust the figure for seasonal variations or include anyone under 18. The survey suggests that the official figures will also show an increase from January’s 8.3 percent when they are released on Friday, said Gallup’s chief economist Dennis Jacobe.

“If the government’s unadjusted unemployment rate increases to the degree that Gallup’s has from mid-month to mid-month, then the government’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate could show an even larger increase,” Jacobe said.

He predicted the government figure for February would stand at either 8.5 or 8.6 percent.

Gallup’s figure reveals the largest single month increase since December 2010 when it went up from 8.8 percent to 9.6 percent. According to the organization, the underemployment rate – which includes part-time workers who want to be in full-time employment, rose from 18.7 percent to 19.1 percent in February, the highest since last May.

“Regardless of what the government reports, Gallup’s unemployment and underemployment measures show a substantial deterioration since mid-January,” added Jacobe. “In this context, the increase in unemployment as measured by Gallup may, at least partly, reflect growth in the workforce, as more Americans who had given up looking for work become slightly more optimistic and start looking for work again.

“So while there may be positive signs, the reality Gallup finds is that more Americans are looking for work now than were doing so just six weeks ago.
Official Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment figures have shown the rate go down from 9 percent since September.

And even Gallup is far more optimistic than the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office as stated in its annual report:

The [CBO] office says that will leave the unemployment rate at 8.9 percent at the end of this year, well above current the current rate of 8.5 percent, meaning the jobless rate would be increasing at election time.

[…]

And in 2013, CBO estimates unemployment will be even higher — at 9.2 percent.

As to the question as to whether Obama has created more jobs or destroyed jobs, this conversation was telling during official testimony with CBO director Douglas Elmendorf:

That prompted this exchange between Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., and the CBO director. “Let me ask you, are there more people working today or fewer people working today than at the — on inauguration day of 2009?” McClintock asked.

“I believe the answer to that,” said Elmendorf, “is there are fewer people, congressman.”

Who are you going to believe?

There is an intentionally false picture being presented by somebody (see also here and here).  That much is abundantly clear.

In the case of Nazi Germany, had the German people believed the likes of Stephen Laurant, imagine how much suffering they could have spared themselves and the rest of the world.  But they were fools who chose to believe the wrong people.

Right now, Barack Obama is trying to get himself re-elected so there will be absolutely no reason for him to restrain himself in the pursuit of policies that will lead America to economic ruin.

Like the German people prior to World War II, if the American people foolishly choose to believe the wrong sources, we won’t get a do-over; they will rightly receive ruin.  Because we are responsible for our choices in this world.

Gallup Predicts New Unemployment Rate Will Skyrocket To 8.6 Percent

March 6, 2012

Note that the actual official unemployment rate ought to be 9.1 percent in February.  Note that the last few months of snowjob from the Obama media was a giant crock of crap.

You should also note that the REAL unemployment rate is actually over NINETEEN PERCENT!!!

Note that the dire CBO prediction regarding the weak and faltering US economy under Obama is coming to pass (and see a more detailed explanation of the CBO report here).

Gallup’s Unadjusted Unemployment Data Suggest Increase in BLS Adjusted Figure

Gallup finds U.S. unemployment, as measured without seasonal adjustment, to be 9.1% in February, based on almost 30,000 interviews with a random sample of Americans. When Gallup applies the 0.5-percentage-point seasonal adjustment that the government applied to its unadjusted data for February last year, it produces an adjusted unemployment rate for February 2012 of 8.6% — a substantial increase from the 8.3% adjusted rate the government reported for January.

The findings provide a preview of what Gallup will report in its monthly employment release next Thursday, March 8. Because Gallup’s data are collected continuously throughout the month, the data are available now, one week ahead of the BLS report scheduled for Friday, March 9.
 
Three key factors help determine the relationship between Gallup’s measurement of the unemployment rate and the unemployment rate reported by the government. The first involves the relationship between Gallup’s and the government’s unadjusted survey results. Data from the past two years show that on an unadjusted basis, Gallup’s and the government’s unemployment measurements track fairly closely in both direction and magnitude.
 
 
Gallup reported an unadjusted rate of 8.6% for January 2012 and the government reported an unadjusted rate of 8.8%. Gallup’s and the government’s unadjusted results also tracked closely in January 2011 (9.9% versus 9.8%, respectively) and January 2010 (10.9% compared with 10.6%).
 
The results were similarly close in February 2010 (when Gallup found 10.6% versus the government’s 10.4%) but diverged significantly in February 2011, when Gallup reported an unadjusted rate of 10.3% and the government an unadjusted rate of 9.5%. That is, after the government re-based its unemployment data in January 2011, Gallup’s and the government’s February results differed in both magnitude and direction.
 
Relating Gallup’s current findings to the likely unemployment rate the government will report for February depends on a number of somewhat complex key assumptions. Consider the following scenarios:
Based on its full-month measure, Gallup finds that the unadjusted unemployment rate increased by 0.5 points, to an average of 9.1% in February from 8.6% in January.
  • If we assume the government’s unadjusted unemployment rate experienced a similar 0.5-point increase, it would rise to 9.3% in February from January’s 8.8%. Applying the 0.5-point seasonal adjustment (based on the government’s February 2011 adjustment) to the February 2012 unadjusted rate (9.3%) would result in an increase in the U.S. seasonally adjusted unemployment rate to 8.8% in February 2012 from January’s 8.3%.
  • If we instead assume the government’s unadjusted rate increased by 0.3 points in February to exactly match Gallup’s measurement at 9.1%, this would produce an increase in the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate to 8.6% in February 2012 — assuming the use of the February 2011 seasonal adjustment of 0.5 points.
Of course, there are lots of other possible assumptions. For example, the government’s unemployment estimate is based on a mid-month measurement. Gallup’s mid-month measurement for the unadjusted unemployment rate in January 2012 was 8.3% and it was 9.0% in mid-February. If we were to apply this mid-month increase of 0.7 points to the government’s unadjusted January rate of 8.8%, the resulting unadjusted 9.5% would lead to a 9.0% seasonally adjusted rate.
 
On the other hand, the government re-based its household survey once again in January 2012. If the government’s unadjusted survey results are unchanged (8.8%) or go lower in February, the government’s seasonally adjusted rate is likely to do the same.
 
A second factor to consider is the way the government seasonally adjusts its unadjusted unemployment rate for February. As noted previously, the government used a 0.5-point adjustment factor to seasonally adjust its results in February 2011. However, in 2010, it used a slightly different 0.6-point adjustment. Applying this larger seasonal adjustment to Gallup’s full-month results would produce an 8.5% adjusted unemployment rate for February 2012 — up from 8.3% in January.
 
A third factor that affects the unemployment rate might involve shifts taking place in the size of the workforce. If Americans seeking work get discouraged and drop out of the workforce in large numbers, it is likely to reduce the unemployment rate. This appears to have happened at various points in the past. Gallup’s measurement of the participation rate — the percentage of Americans in the workforce — shows a decline to 67.6% in February from 68.2% in January. If the government shows a similar decline in the workforce, it is likely to lower the U.S. unemployment rate that the government reports and that may not be fully picked up by Gallup’s data.
 
In sum, Gallup’s Daily tracking of the U.S. unemployment rate — which is not seasonally or otherwise adjusted — shows an increase in February from January. This reflects a consistent measurement of the job-market reality that Gallup has measured since January 2010. It may be that various factors will lead the U.S. government on Friday, March 9, to release a different unemployment rate than that implied by Gallup’s results, but that report will not change the reality in the marketplace.

Under Obama’s failed leadership millions and millions of Americans have simply given up and dropped out of the employment picture altogether.  And Obama loves it when he’s crushed the spirit of another worker, because that artificially lowers the unemployment rate and makes his failure artificially appear good.

This economy is teetering and on its way to a very hard fall.  And it is simply beyond laughable that the propaganda media would continually tell us that things are going just peachy dandy under their messiah’s marvellous leadership.

CBO Director States For The Official Record That Obama Has Destroyed Jobs And Will CONTINUE To Destroy Jobs

February 3, 2012

Has Obama created or destroyed jobs since taking office?

That prompted this exchange between Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., and the CBO director.  “Let me ask you, are there more people working today or fewer people working today than at the — on inauguration day of 2009?” McClintock asked.

“I believe the answer to that,” said Elmendorf, “is there are fewer people, congressman.”

Is Obama’s economic plan succeeding or wildly failing to create jobs?

The [CBO] office says that will leave the unemployment rate at 8.9 percent at the end of this year, well above current the current rate of 8.5 percent, meaning the jobless rate would be increasing at election time.

[…]

And in 2013, CBO estimates unemployment will be even higher — at 9.2 percent.

Both of these statements from the Democrat-appointed CBO director prove that Barack Hussein Obama is a pathological liar on THE most fundamental issues that the American people care about.  Obama says that he has created 2 million jobs; he is a liar from the lowest snake pit.  And Obama claims that his policies are working WHEN THEY ARE WILDLY FAILING AND WILL FAIL WORSE IN THE COMING MONTHS.

Here is the story which details all of the above and more:

Congressional budget chief offers dim outlook on economic growth, jobs
By Jim Angle
Published February 01, 2012 | FoxNews.com

Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Elmendorf on Wednesday projected that economic growth will slow by next year and unemployment will rise before that — a forecast that Rep. Paul Ryan called ominous, grim and alarming.

Elmendorf laid out the latest projections on the economy and deficits before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill.

Ryan, R-Wis., who is chairman, raised alarm given projections that 2012 “will mark the fourth straight year of trillion-dollar deficits.”

“Trillions more dollars will be added to debt in the years ahead, putting a chilling effect on jobs creation today and committing the next generation to a diminished future,” he said.

Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen took a different approach, saying deficits and growth would have been worse without President Obama’s stimulus plan. “The Recovery Act did serve its purpose. It’s kind of like when you’re walking up an escalator that’s going down very quickly. If you take no action you will go down very fast,” he said.

Yet future deficits depend in large part on how fast the economy grows, along with spending and revenues. And on that front, the CBO isn’t offering a lot of encouragement.

“The pace of the recovery has been slow since the recession ended two and a half years ago,” Elmendorf said. “And we project that it will continue to be slow for the next two years.”

The CBO believes that economic growth will be only 2 percent this year — and an anemic 1.1 percent next year.

The office says that will leave the unemployment rate at 8.9 percent at the end of this year, well above current the current rate of 8.5 percent, meaning the jobless rate would be increasing at election time.

That prompted this exchange between Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., and the CBO director.  “Let me ask you, are there more people working today or fewer people working today than at the — on inauguration day of 2009?” McClintock asked.

“I believe the answer to that,” said Elmendorf, “is there are fewer people, congressman.”

And in 2013, CBO estimates unemployment will be even higher — at 9.2 percent.

Republicans have been wringing their hands about deficits for years, but one Democrat on Wednesday railed against those who focus only on cutting spending.

“Because there are people here that want to destroy the government, that it has no responsibility and it can’t live up to the obligations,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J.

Several Democrats asked about how much revenues would be increased by eliminating the Bush tax cuts in hopes of avoiding more spending cuts.

One of the factors that will expand future deficits is entitlements, such as Medicare, which will explode as the baby boomers retire.

Elmendorf explained that “the fundamental fiscal challenge during this decade and beyond remains the aging of the population and rising costs for health care. The number of people aged 65 or older will increase by one-third in the coming decade, substantially raising the costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.”

In addition, he said, the new federal health care overhaul will significantly increase the number of non-elderly people receiving assistance through federal health care programs, such as Medicaid.

All of that is likely to balloon current levels of debt.

The CBO did project declining deficits under “current law.”

But current law would end the Bush tax cuts for everyone, even those making less than $250,000 a year, which neither Congress nor the president supports.

It would also mean a cut of almost 30 percent to doctors who treat Medicare patients, which Congress has never let take effect.

Here is the CBO unemployment prediction from its report:

I wrote about this complete and total lie of Obama’s claims of creating jobs has been a couple of weeks ago.  Basically, you can look at the labor participation rate to see that Obama has destroyed two-and-a-half million jobs; and if we used the same participation rate under Bush that we now have under Obama, unemployment would be well over eleven percent:

Obama Hell: When Bush Left Office Average Length Of Unemployment Was 19.8 Weeks; NOW IT’S 40.8 WEEKS

8 Illuminating Charts That Show How Truly Failed Obamanomics Truly Is

Please read my article (that also just came out today) on the shocking immoral disaster that Social Security was from the very beginning.

Consider that the real debt of our nation is $211 trillion, not the $16 trillion we hear about, and that Democrats have saddled us with virtually every single penny of a debt that we can never hope to repay and which will ultimately implode and destroy this nation.  That’s the past that Democrats have immorally saddled us with in their effort to control our lives and our fortunes while they stole whatever sacred honor we otherwise could have aspired to.

Then consider the future that Democrats have in store for us as you contemplate all of Barack Obama’s shocking lies and the slowly sinking path to hell he has planned for us with his death by 4,200 – and counting – regulations.

Consider the ObamaCare boondoggle that has 160 new death panels in it:

Consider what CBO Director Elmendorf said about Obama’s documented history of job destruction as well as his prediction of future Obama job destruction.

And then please vote for America by voting against Obama this November.

America may not be able to survive anyway; but it definitely can’t survive another four years of Obama.

Obama Hell: When Bush Left Office Average Length Of Unemployment Was 19.8 Weeks; NOW IT’S 40.8 WEEKS

January 7, 2012

This was what Obama said yesterday (Jan 6, 2012):

“Altogether more private sector jobs were created in 2011 than any year since 2005,” Mr. Obama said during a visit to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Friday. “There are a lot of people that are still hurting out there. After losing more than 8 million jobs in the recession, obviously we have a lot more work to do. But it is important for the American people to recognize that we’ve now added 3.2 million new private sector jobs over the last 22 months — nearly 2 million jobs last year alone.”

The problem is this man is a liar from the bottom of the pit of hell.

You want to see the hell that unemployment hell Obama has given us in a single graph?

No, no, you stupid liberal: that’s not a rocket ship blasting up into space; that’s your messiah’s average duration of unemployment that is blasting straight up into the stratsosphere.

The average duration of unemployment when Bush left office was 19.8 weeks.  That’s how long it took the average person who lost a job to find another one.  Now it is 40.8 weeks.  If you’re REALLY lucky.

Thanks for that “fundamental transformation” of America, Barry Hussein.

And here’s the truth about how many jobs Barack Obama HAS DESTROYED, as measured by the labor force participation rate (which for you liberals is the percent of people who are actually PARTICIPATING in the labor force):

Yes, liberal, I know.  That DOES look like a rocket ship plunging out of space on its way to a terrible crash.  But that’s what happens when you give a fool the U.S. economy.

The labor force participation rate was 65.7% on January 2009 when Bush left office.  It was 64% as of December 2011.  And when you’re talking about a working-age population the size of America’s that 1.7% is HUGE.

Obama isn’t creating jobs; he’s DESTROYING JOBS.

Even Ezra Klein states that if the same labor force participation rate applied from the Bush years, the actual Obama unemployment rate would be at 11 percent. James Pethokoukis of Reuters calculated it at 11.3 percent.  And Tyler Durden using the most recent data calculates it at 11.4%.

That’s the truth.  If you pay attention to the actual facts and ignore Barack Obama’s lying mouth and the propaganda of the mainstream media.

The actual work force – thanks to Barack Obama’s morally and logically depraved policies – is 2.5 million jobs smaller than when he took office.  That’s how many jobs have simply ceased to exist.

The reason the unemployment rate is going down is because it is measured in a fraudulent manner that does not take into account the discouraged workers who are simply dropping out and abandoning the work force.  Because the reality of the Obama failure has crushed every reality they have ever cherished.  For them, “hope” is dead.  And “change” is hell.

As I pointed out nearly a year ago, at the ‘rate’ we’re Going, we’ll have a 0% unemployment rate but no one will have an actual job.

8 Illuminating Charts That Show How Truly Failed Obamanomics Truly Is

December 26, 2011

Is Obamanomics working?  Only if “working” means imploding America: 

The 7 most illuminating economic charts of 2011
By James Pethokoukis
December 23, 2011, 12:11 pm

My Magnificent Seven. Some bust myths. Others highlight a reality the media is ignoring. Enjoy!

1. The overly optimistic unemployment forecast of the Obama White House. This may be the most infamous economic prediction in U.S. political history (helpfully updated by The Right Sphere). For the original January 2009 chart from White House economic advisers Jared Bernstein and Christina Romer, see here.

 

2. The real unemployment rate. The official (U-3) unemployment rate is 8.6 percent. But the labor force has been shrinking as discouraged workers have been disappeared by government statisticians rather than counted as unemployed. But what if they weren’t? What if the Labor Department added those folks back into the numbers? Well, you would get this:

3. Middle-class incomes have been stagnant for decades—not. It is an oft-repeated liberal talking point, one that President Obama himself used in his populist Osawatomie Speech: The rich got richer the past 30 years while the middle-class went nowhere. In short, the past few decades of lower taxes and lighter regulation have been a failure. Or, rather, pro-market policies have been a failure … except that new research from the University of Chicago’s Bruce Meyer and Notre Dame’s James Sullivan find that “median income and consumption both rose by more than 50 percent in real terms between 1980 and 2009.”

4. Inequality has exploded—not. According to the MSM and liberal economists, U.S. inequality has exploded to levels not seen since the 1920s or perhaps even the Gilded Age of the late 19th century. And to prove their point—that the 1 percent has gotten amazingly richer in recent decades—the inequality alarmists will inevitably trot out a famous income inequality study from economists Emmanuel Saez and Thomas Pike. But why not instead look at wealth—all financial and nonfinancial assets—instead of income? It’s less volatile and a truer measure of all the economic resources at an individual’s command. Turns out that Saez has done research on that subject, too. And he even created a revealing chart documenting the ups and downs of U.S. wealth over the past century. It reveals a very different picture of inequality in America:

5. and 6. The underwhelming Obama recovery. When you compare the current recovery to those of the past, it looks pretty anemic. And it doesn’t matter if you look at GDP growth or unemployment (via The Economist).

 

 

7. America’s debt picture is worse than you think. If you factor in the long-term impact of rising federal debt on U.S. interest rates and economic growth—raising borrowing costs and lowering tax revenue—you’ll find that federal debt could be almost 50 percent higher by 2035 than the estimates usually bandied about in the media.

 

I’ll give you another chart as an extra bonus.  It demonstrates the inconvenient fact that Obama’s VERY BEST month in terms of unemployment is signifantly worse than George Bush’s WORST month:

The truth is that Obama has lost 2.5 million jobs since he took office. The truth is these  jobs have simply ceased to exist under Obama, as measured by the diminishing labor participation rate. The truth is that if Obama were measured by the same labor participation rate that Bush was measured by when he left office, unemployment would be at over 11.3% (according to an analysis by Reuters), rather than the 8.6% Obama is being lauded for by media propaganda. I mean, dang, the truth is that even liberal Ezra Klein affirms that the real unemployment rate ought to be 11 percent.

We live in an age where awful is massaged and manipulated by a modern Ministry of Truth to be wonderful.
