WH: ´Employment Report Provides
Further Evidence that the U.S.
Economy Is Continuing to Heal´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/1/2013 10:01:53 AM

Today´s unemployment rate, which states the unemployment rate has ticked up to 7.9 percent, prompts the White House to say, "oday’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst downturn since the Great Depression." " It is critical that we pursue the policies needed to build an economy that works for the middle class as we continue to dig our way out of the deep hole that was caused by the severe recession that began in December 2007,"

Comments:
I truly don´t know whether to laugh or cry. How do we tolerate four more years of this. The only thing these pathetic morons excel in is lying, wasting our money and campaigning.

It´s normal for a growing US economy to add 250,000 or so new jobs each month. The fact that they brag about numbers substantially below that amount is sickening. But...LoFo´s seem content as long as the free goodies keep rolling in.

It´s all lies!

Every time they put one out, it looks good, and then a month or two later those figures (from a couple months back) get revised and they´re horrid. Yet no one seems to notice the pattern...or more accurately, the MSM refuses to report it.

Has any of our fellow Luciannites tracked this? I´m willing to guess it´s happened every other month for the last two years, if not thru-out Obama´s entire first term.

It must be made to seem his ideas or working, or people will start to evaluate them (well, maybe not the Low Info crowd - you can only work with the tools you have...)

Still "Boooosh", as evident in WH statement that "recession began in December, 2007". Same propaganda release does not mention that recession officially ended in June, 2009.

Since the recession ended in June, 2009, why has the GDP growth been so anemic? And, why has it declined each year since then? The evil Bush must still be in the Oval House. Obama surely isn´t.

If 4th Quarter´s GDP contraction is an indication, we may be in for a 4 year recession under President Blame Everyone but Me.

I was told not to accept a single months numbers, as they were not indicitive of any overall trend! Or is that only when the numbers are bad?

The only thing more pathetic than the White House lies are the Low Info Voters (LIV) that believe the White House lies.

With this many stupid people in the USA, is it any wonder that Obama was elected and re-elected?

We are doomed.

8,500,000 people no longer work today than when Abomination was first elected.

That $800 billion supposed one-time stimulus Abomination initiated in Jan 2009 continues today without any results.

8 million new "disabled" on SSI.

And Democrats working hard to increase the price of gasoline (won´t help the little guy).
Also, closing coal-fired power plants which will increase cost of electricity for everyone too.

This is absolute garbage. If you look at the household survey employment fell by 1.4 million. Yes 1.4 million. That´s double the drop of last January. You expect a drop in January but not this big. 423,000 left the labor force.

The seasonally adjusted numbers, with a birth and death component tossed in, from BLS are garbage. Only fools believe them. The labor market is collapsing. We are in recession, no amount of lies can change that.

How many people who want a job cannot find one. How many people who want jobs have stopped looking. How many people are under-employed. The Government data is essentially useless drivel. What good are percentages. What good are revisions. We want a HEAD COUNT for each category. How many people are working one or more part-time jobs because they cannot find one full-time job. Its about REAL PEOPLE, not numbers. Every report is plain BS.

To believe this president and his minions is to be certifiably insane.
The majority of Americans say they do NOT trust this government. They view it as threatening to their personal freedom.
We are in danger from our own government.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
