Unemployment drops below
8 per cent for first time in
nearly four years prompting
accusations of a fix weeks ahead
of the election

Daily Mail (UK), by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 10/5/2012 9:40:55 AM

The national unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 per cent in September, edging below eight per cent for the first time in almost four years and handing President Barack Obama's re-election hopes a potentially major boost. (Snip)According to James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute, however, if the labour participation rate had remained at the same rate as it was when Obama took office, the unemployment rate would be 10.7 per cent. The figures immediately prompted claims of political manipulation in the wake of a poor debate performance by Obama in Denver.

Comments:
October non-surprise, according to Jack Welch.

Their new attack campaign is the Romney is a liar/dishonest/can't be trusted.

When will we learn that they project their ugly, putrid "values" onto us. Look at Occupy, see how they label TEA Party. Obama, see how they label Romney. The Senate, labels the House as "do nothings with no plans", they who haven't passed a budget in four years.

It's going to turn so ugly...how and why have we gotten to this point?

Although U-3 unemployment, the official number, is 7.8%, the U-6 number is still around 15%, and the gap between U-3 and U-6 has widened considerably under Obama.

If you also look at the seasonally adjusted SGS rate, that's gone way up under Obama to around 23%. That statistic for long-term discouraged workers was defined out of official existence in 1994 (under Clinton, how convenient!). Graph is at URL below:

This is not good news for Obama because it is so easily dissected: There are millions fewer people in the entire labor force because they've lost hope of getting jobs:

...however, if the labour participation rate had remained at the same rate as it was when Obama took office, the unemployment rate would be 10.7 per cent.

So why isn't the headline, "Unemployment at 10.7% if you include people who can't get jobs and have stopped looking"?

This is too easy and far too transparent a manipulation. Obama will attempt to use this phony figure in his "I need more time" to fix this mantra.

Rush predicted that "SHAZAM!", the unemployment rate will drop to 8% or lower right before the election. As usual, he was right, and this was how this figure of 7.8% came about -- by eliminating from the work force the millions of workers now out of jobs with no hopes of getting one unless Obama is kicked out.

Ditto hiring: Employers are waiting to hire only if Obama loses. If he does lose, the economy will go bonkers UP.

As for the rest of the headline about "a fix", it sure is, but it's also easily debunked.

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.
