US economy adds 146K

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy added a solid 146,000 jobs in November and the unemployment rate fell to 7.7 percent, the lowest since December 2008. The government said Superstorm Sandy had only a minimal effect on the figures. The Labor Department report offered a mixed picture for the economy. Hiring remained steady during the storm and in the face of looming tax increases. But the government said employers added 49,000 fewer jobs in October and September than initially estimated. And the unemployment rate fell from 7.9 percent in October mostly because more people stopped looking for work and

The headline on Drudge says 540,000 dropped out of the work force - that is why. Gee, if everyone just stopped looking, maybe it would go down to 0%. Barry could be a hero and everyone would be on welfare. No one would care about who pays the bills.

Anarchy anyone?

The AP is another propaganda arm of the newly revised 21st Century Obama "Bolsheviks."

Hold onto your behinds, this is going to be a rough ride. Question everything that is emitted from the WH and the national press.

What they fail to mention is 540,000 dropped from the labor force and are not counted among the unemployed. Hence the "improvement". It´s a lie. Don´t look for the truth in the AP or any other mainstream news source, though.

That infestation in our White House - obama -a naional plague of historical proportions seems to have figured out this unemployment problem: Just do all you can to make the economy TANK and soon enough, when you discourage EVERYONE out of the job market, you will have 0% unemployment !!!
The plan is working marvelously.

A "solid 146,000 jobs"???

We need to add a minimum of 250,000 every month just to keep up with the number of new entrants into the job market.

How do the "journalists" that write this crap keep their jobs?

Using Obamamath - the fewer people who are working results in an ever-lower unemployment rate. I guess when everyone is sitting at home collecting handouts the unemployment rate will be Zero.

Temporary jobs, for the holiday shopping season. It proves that we can get more money directly into the economy, the jobless rate will fall. Instead, Obama wants to take more money out of the economy, through higher taxes.

The constitutional republic known as the U.S.A. is gone. Everything coming out of Washington, D.C. is a deception. How will you respond to the fact that our republic is gone? Will you roll-over? Millions of illegal immigrants are here and coming in the future. The federal government is lawless.

What will you do?

The AP would describe quicksand as "solid" if it helped Obama. Hotair.com provides reality-

The unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent in November. The number of unemployed persons, at 12.0 million, changed little. (See table A-1.)


The U-6 figure also dropped by two-tenths of a point to 14.4%, its lowest level all year. However, the seasonally-adjusted labor force dropped by 350,000, and the civilian labor force participation rate also dropped two-tenths of a point to 63.6%, almost at the 31-year low hit in August. The employment-population ratio dropped by one-tenth of a percent to 58.7%.

In other words, America isn’t going back to work. Americans are still dropping out of the work force.

I see various comments indicating people are confused about the Government jobs numbers. One point is that they adjusted the figures for the prior two months. And as noted on other websites, the government figures for the number of people that " dropped out of the work force ", that is, stopped looking for work, escalated greatly. Added all together, the "Rate" drops, but the total number of people either unemployed or not looking to be employed increases. The percentage of people working in the USA vs the total population of people that could be working is extremely low, probably at a record low, but the HEADLINE posted by MSM supporters of the Administration make it look good, when in fact, it is NOT. It is terrible. Bottom line, never has such a low % of the "able to work" population been actually working. The Government Unemployment rate is a red-herring, a ruse.

Just changing the labor force looking for jobs wasn´t enough. Wall Street reports they went back and revised Sept jobs down from 148,000 to 132,000 and Oct jobs down from 171,000 to 138,000. Voila, those 49,000 jobs get moved to Nov and we get unexpected job growth. Then you reduce participation and, Eureka, unemployment falls! Its an error in judgement to believe anything out of this White House.

Surprise...what happens EVERY year right after the Christmas rush is over ? These 146,000 "SOLID" new jobs are just temporary sales people on the registers at Walmart. Duh. Layoffs will follow of course, with months or years of new unemployment benefits.

FTA: "And the unemployment rate fell to a four-year low in November from 7.9 percent in October mostly because more people stopped looking for work and weren’t counted as unemployed."
So AP knows what happened.

Yet, the headline reads: "US economy adds 146K jobs, rate falls to 7.7 %." Guess which point makes it into the heads of Obama and his minions, by design.

Sen. Landrieu takes heat for reenacting

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz adeptly sidestepped questions about how he´d fare among conservative Republicans in a South Carolina presidential primary. But he did say another Democrat in the White House would spell doom and gloom. "Eight more years of this, I don´t know it´s something this country comes back from," he said.Cruz, widely seen as the conservative face of last year´s government shutdown over funding what Republicans call "Obamacare," spent Tax Day talking to free enterprise advocates at The Citadel. "Liberty is under assault like never before," he told the crowd. "It seems this president is going down the Bill

This gathering in the desert is no Coachella — it looks more like a full scale Allah-palooza. A new video popping up on Jihadi Web sites shows some of al Qaeda most dangerous terrorists smiling and glad-handing each other at a terrorist conclave in Yemen, CNN reported. The video, which features al?Qaeda crown prince ­Nasir al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fellow terrorists in the arid hinterlands, is being analyzed by US authorities. It was unclear if the CIA was aware of the conference, which could have been an inviting target for an anti-terror drone strike, CNN said. Al-Wuhayshi, the leader

CHARLESTON, S.C. — It didn’t take much for Ted Cruz to bring a crowd of conservatives to its feet here. By the time the Texas Republican senator finished speaking Tuesday night, an adoring audience hailed Cruz and his no-compromise, combative style of conservatism that has made him the scourge of the GOP establishment but a hero of the tea party. “Liberty is under assault today like never before,” Cruz said, pacing the stage like a televangelist. But even in deep-red South Carolina, a well-received speech full of Cruz’s signature flair is no guarantee that the firebrand politician could win the

New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday. The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however. In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
