Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential election campaign, The Daily Caller has learned. On Oct. 11, the federal government reported that weekly jobless claims were down significantly, suggesting a dramatic national increase in economic growth. But within hours, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that one major state had failed to fully document jobless claims. (Snip) Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown appointed Morgenstern to lead the California Labor & Workforce Development Agency in 2011. The state agency oversees the Employment Development Department.
Comments: Is there not one thing about the 0bama regime and those who support it that isn't built upon fraud? Oh yeah, that would be the stuff that is build upon corruption. The only question we have here then is which is it?
We all know 0bama is cooking the numbers; I have never known so many people out of work. Of course, he lied. Unemployment is over 15%. 0bama is pumping the stock market by printing trillions of dollars. Everything we buy costs more.
From Capitol Weekly, 2010: During Brown’s first tenure as California’s governor, he famously appointed a labor union power force, Marty Morgenstern, as the head of the Department of Personnel Administration, the government body that mediates contract negotiations between unions and the governor.
This guy is a soul mate of Trumka. Maxed out Obama donor willing to do anything to help, lie, cheat and steal.
I work at night, I do my food shopping midday. The amount of people out and about at noon in suburban NJ is staggering. It may as well be a sunny Sunday afternoon. Cars lined up and down residential streets and in driveways. No one is working. I've never seen anything like it
Obomination is trying to wreck as much havoc as he can before the election. No matter the outcome of the election, that has been his main goal, to get as many people dependent on government as possible. He wins then either way. Romney will have a sorry mess to clean up!
So, what are the adjusted unemployment figures? This is the 3rd story that I've read regarding CA holding back data for September and NOT ONE of them says how different from the bogus 7.8% figure the REAL figure is.
CA demonrats tried to help Barry and lost when the facts came out. I expect Cuomo in NY will be the next one to skip reporting. After all, it's the demonrat run states that are having the huge job losses.
As soon as I heard one large State had not reported their figures ,(CA), I suspected that the Obama campaign had intervened and suggested this trick. The American people are so stupid to believe anything, or so Obama seems to believe.
The real number is simply what Mitt said it was in the debate - somewhere above 10% if you actually start out with the same number of people working instead of pretending all the people who left the work force don't exist. You can take that man's words to the bank.
I will love having a president whose words you can take to the bank. For a change.
Oh and the real-real number is the U6 around 14% or 15%. I seem to remember Mitt's mentioning that in one of the debates too.
I remember how bad the lies and manipulations were with Clinton, but this admin is so much worse. Funny, how we've all become cynical to this type of blatant corruption. I'm looking forward to President Romney and his squeeky clean leadership.
And the only one to lose his job over it was the managing editor of the large and important business magazine, Forbs, who noticed the fraud and loudly warned everyone about it. What a strange world we have when the honest people are punished and the robbers, liars and crooks get the rewards.
By my calculation, since it was not provided; FTA, last week unemployment supposedly went down 30,000 to a total of 339,000, this week unemployment went up 46,000 to a total of 388,000 when California's information was added. Never mind that 46,000 plus 339,000 does not equal 388,000, the percent of unemployed has to be higher than it was 2 weeks ago which was 8.2% (I think--this previous unemployment was also not stated in the article). If my math is reasonably accurate, and it is, that means, shazam, unemployment is more than the magical 8%.
Folk, now we know what elections are like in third world countries; Banana Republics if you will. This is just a taste of what is to come if the Marxist-in-Chief is re elected. The media misreports and lies about the challenger and corrupt government officials skew or outright lie or hide data to make the government look good. Anything to keep the tyrant in office because they know how to keep their jobs.
So, if Zippy is re elected, you can see what society and the economy will be like - a third world nation.
Who would ever believe such a great nation could fall so far, so fast.
What is equally disturbing is the entire Big Media Complex dutifully reports the 7.8% figure as if it`s the gospel. Even Fox News joined in on the Big Lie. No fact checking, no `in depth` analysis, no investigative reporting as to where that number came from.
The on line movie guy donated a million bucks for Prop 3o in Calif to raise the taxes one veryone and it goes in the general fund. Also there are other H'wooders donating $100K for Prop 30 to raise sales taxes and tax "millionaires". The govt has become the mob. This is impt for the other 49 states because Calif needs a bailout about 27 billion dollars. Calif Legislature will be over 50% Donk and can pass or not pass anything after the election because the morons and illegals will vote donks in toto in to office. The Calif GOP is very weak and will not fight back But every other state (49) will be on the hook for $500,000,000 if my math is correct.
The last of my relatives have just bought a house in another state. Goodbye California and a special goodbye to Marty. It was once a wonderful place to live but they have seen the decline since the 70's. The only people believing the lies are liberals, the rest are longing for free greener pastures.
We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.
Former Gov. Angus King, running as an independent, won the Senate contest Tuesday in Maine, NBC News projected, taking a seat that had been held by the Republicans. The loss further complicated the party's drive to take control of the Senate (Snip) Republican Ted Cruz defeated Democrat Paul Sadler to hold the open seat in Texas, succeeding retiring Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison, NBC News projected.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.
Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political
A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.
Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
