Dow hits historic 17,000 high as
U.S. jobs numbers skyrocket

Boston Herald, by Jordan Graham

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 11:21:04 AM

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

288,000 ain´t stunning. It´s level-pegging with the increase in population.

What would be stunning would be an increase in proportion of adults who actually work.

They are really deluding themselves. I heard today on Fox that the real rate is a little over 12%.I believe a crash is coming.

I keep hearing about all of the "new jobs" being created. I know a lot of unemployed people who are on active search for a meaningful job. None of them are finding anything that doesn´t require using a mop and broom.

I realize that this is the new normal under the traitorous communist infiltrates in the White House but ask yourself, "Do I know anyone who has gotten a real job in the past year?"

If they told what was really in the jobs report you´d feel sick. We lost 500,000 full time jobs last month. Lost 500,000. We gained 780,000 part time jobs. The biggest increase in part time jobs in more than 20 years. How is this a good jobs report? I´m sure when the final numbers are crunched it will turn out there were fewer total hours worked last month. The number of people not in the workforce rose to another record. We´re becoming a part time, low wage economy and that´s not good.

Are these jobs the ones that the kids pick up when school gets out....in JUNE?

Towns and villages in our area hire large numbers of young people for Life Guards, camp counselors, Summer grass cutting and maintenance.

Companies that have seasonal work may hire house painters, lawn care helpers, and short term help at stores and fast food places to cover vacations etc.

Jobs? Yes...technically, but NOT the kind that will turn this Titanic around before we hit the big iceberg.

Is anyone really that stupid to believe these numbers? The stock market is high because we are printing 75 Billion Dollars a month, and unemployment is way over 10% if you count all the people who have given up looking for jobs, as there are NO jobs for many of our Americans, due to 0bama´s bad policies.

All markets and numbers are now manipulated by American and foreign governments which cannot allow fiscal reality (unimaginable debt, money created out of thin air, and worthless currencies) to be seen without the rose-colored glasses that they seek to impose. The economy has been blah for 6 years but the markets are soaring? Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, and hold onto your wallet ... ya think, like the citizens of Cyprus, that your money is safe even in your bank? Take those glasses OFF.

The only way to get 6.1% is dropping a lot of folk off the rolls.

It´s VERY simple: Wall Street knows we´re in a period of high inflation, which will soon morph into hyper inflation. The rising ´DOW´ numbers is an indication of investors hedging against that inflation: the job numbers have absolutely NOTHING to do with the rise.

#20 is right. There are areas around the country where things are going great. In Texas, it´s mostly related to the oil patch. Hotels can´t get maintenance people, restaurants can´t get service help, apartments and rental houses are scarce and pricey. I have a nephew who drives a hazardous materials truck (special license) and fends off pirate headhunters several times a week. But if an unemployed person isn´t in those hot areas, life is much harder, obviously. I have a cousin in the Detroit area, working three part-time jobs after losing his auto industry executive position. His family is unable to move somewhere else because there is no market for their nice, middle-class home.

Intel believes 300 Americans

The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials. Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting

The media just can´t seem to understand why Americans won´t join them in celebrating the Obama economy. There are two reasons for this disconnect. The first is that Washington DC is a booming Emerald City. Thanks to government largesse using money stolen from taxpayers, the skies are filled with construction cranes and the money flows like wine. The second reason is that unemployment numbers are pure BS; we all know it and so too does science: This problem dates back to a 1994 redesign of the survey when it went from paper-based to computer-based, although neither the researchers nor anyone

Ice cream magnate and State Treasurer Doug Ducey has won the Republican primary to stand for the next governor of Arizona, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Ducey, who started Cold Stone Creamery in Arizona and built it into a national brand before selling the company in 2007, won the primary following a campaign focusing on his blend of government and business experience. He has been state treasurer for the last four years, serving as the chief steward of Arizona´s finances during a period that included the collapse of the housing market in the

Even the late "positive thinking" avatar Norman Vincent Peale would have a tough slog finding optimism over Atlantic City´s current state, what with gaming revenues running about half of what they were eight years ago and three casinos set to turn out their lights by mid-September. But everything is relative. Compared with 50 years ago this week, the town is Las Vegas, Paris and Rio de Janeiro combined. The resort´s post-World War II decline was exacerbated by what should have been a triumph: Atlantic City had won the right to host the Democratic National Convention. For four days, beginning Aug.

After a fourth round of questioning before magistrates on Wednesday, Lagarde said she would return to her work in Washington later in the day and said in a statement the decision was “without basis.” She is the third IMF managing director in a decade to face legal troubles.

DEERFIELD, Va.— An Air Force fighter jet based in Massachusetts crashed in the mountains of western Virginia on Wednesday, shaking the ground and frightening residents, and officials said the pilot´s fate was unknown. No injuries were reported on the ground as authorities located the crash site through heavy smoke on a mountainside. The pilot of the single-seat F-15C was with the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard in Westfield, Maj. Matthew Mutti said.

Who imagined that the Obama administration´s effort to make school lunches more nutritious (but less delicious) would encourage children to become little community organizers? The U.S. Agriculture Department has found an upside to all those "healthy" school lunches that students refuse to eat: It says schools can use the plate waste as a "learning opportunity" to turn young students into "civic-minded, community-conscious adults." A blog on the USDA website explains that an elementary school in Northern Virginia is now donating untouched food to a local food pantry.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich.

The Obama administration is reportedly attempting to bypass congressional ratification for an international move called a "sweeping international climate change agreement." According to The New York Times, Obama is preparing to hammer out this climate change agreement to "compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions" ahead of a 2015 UN summit meeting in Paris. Calling it a "politically binding" agreement, Obama is reportedly working with foreign operatives to create a "name and shame" program that would pressure nations into conforming to the new global warming limits.

Weems is a white man severely beaten last Saturday night, allegedly by a mob of black men upset about the Brown shooting.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people.

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

As Burger King eyes moving its headquarters to Canada to lower its tax bill, a Democratic senator is recommending a boycott of the burger joint. Instead, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said hamburger lovers should try out two fast food chains that haven´t "abandoned" the United States -- White Castle and Wendy´s. "Burger King has always said ´Have it Your Way´; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven´t abandoned their country or customers," Brown said in a statement.
