This month’s jobs headlines
don’t tell the true story

Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/4/2014 5:11:55 AM

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every

The real number is the labor force participation rate. It´s the lowest it´s ever been since 1973 at 63%. Only 63% percent of the available people work. That 37% equals about 95 - 100 million people who are not working.

As Rogers concluded, 2016 can’t get here fast enough.

And yet the administration keeps issuing H-1B visas (for foreign workers to take American high-tech jobs, among other degreed positions, like biotechies, engineers and doctors).

Mr A, software engineer, facing his fifth lay-off in September, along with many co-workers (this lay-off from a three-year defense contract not renewed by the gubmint after two years--for no good reason), accepted a job offer last week. It pays less than his current job, which paid less than the one before--but gave him a 2% raise in April.

Getting the lay-off warning shortly after New Year´s, A studied night after night to add certification for Linux 1 and then Linux 2 to his qualifications. We think it helped because it shows that even an old fogey still has a highly functional brain. (He already had a load of other software certifications and secret clearances, etc.)

Is it any wonder workers lose hope, become discouraged and depressed?

We´re thrilled A found another job at his age, given the state of the country. Advice to other techies: keep getting those bits of paper--they could make a difference in getting a job offer. And sign up for LinkedIn. It generated several inquiries from company in-house recruiters--and resulted in two interviews, and one acceptable job offer.

FTA "Losing more than half a million full-time jobs in one month is not indicative of a strong, growing economy. It’s a red light flashing on the nation’s dashboard."

We all know the economy is tanking and there are few new full time jobs yet the Chamber of Commerce continues to demand the GOP pass amnesty? There isn´t a need for more laborers but more jobs. Is the Chamber in cahoots with obama and the Democrats makes one wonder.

The MSM is in fact purposely misrepresenting the already devious labor statistics. Virtually all of the increase in "new" jobs was for part-time positions. Employers are cutting full-time jobs and replacing them with part-time jobs in order to cut benefits costs, which are soaring.

Our local news station was all bubbly about the fake "rebound" in the economy, and showed a clip of a triumphant Obama at some plant going on about how great the turnaround is. They have no shame. It´s massive deception and pure propaganda.

Read the comments after the article, everyone. The numbers are right there in front of them, but they refuse to see it. Rush went over this in detail yesterday. Not a pretty picture.

As far as 2016 can´t get here soon enough... Can´t say I´m very optimistic. I don´t believe conservatives will unite, leaving another radical leftist in the White House. Hope I´m wrong.

The only reason that the stock market is doing well is that the Feds are pouring $billions into it every month. Your tax dollars. Are you getting quarterly dividend checks from your investment?

If the Feds stop propping up the markets, they will tank. Then what? 1929, anyone? Is this, like the border mess, just another arm of Cloward-Piven?

The Washington Post is pretty much an inside the beltway source of news. People in that area have never had it so good. They aren´t suffering like the rest of the country. They also have some of the highest salaries in the country. Six of the top ten counties in the USA according to income are in the DC area, in Maryland (2) and Virginia (4).

Mr. Rogers thank you for this report, however, it would have been a much better indication of what is wrong in America and government in particular by telling the fact that the democratic party has become completely controlled by Marxist communists as has the majority of the federal bureaucracy; all working hand in hand with Marxist Obama to destroy free America.

There are many Marxist communists in the republican party who also want to see America fail and turn to Marxist communism.

Step 1. Destroy Christianity by getting false teachers into control of their denominations, divide and conquer.

Step 2. Unleash unbridled immorality among the people as being completely acceptable by most even those who profess to be Christian.

Step 3. Destroy the economy by forcing businesses to adhere to regulations that in time will bankrupt them and the people.

Step 4. Destroy the money by printing and putting into circulation trillions of dollars that make the money worth less everyday until it is worthless, and we are fast approaching that point.

Step 5. Now most of he people will have to rely on the new Marxist government for support or they will just die off or be killed to decrease those who do not agree with the new government.

Uh oh, someone with a brain read the employment numbers. The entire media plucked the 288,000 jobs created number for their headlines without detailing that half of those jobs were just part time and that the 63% of the available people working is the lowest since 1973. A nice little spin for Captain Zero.

Don´t know if I´m going to get spanked or not for doing this but if you want to get real good, real data accuracy with jobs, etc, Mike Shedlock (Mish) does an excellent job, although I disagree with many of his personal opinions. Mish JUST went through the latest BLS data and explains it in detail and in a way that even a Rio Lindan can understand. Also, ZeroHedge is real good (and the comments are truly brilliant laugh riots). My recent fave is Chris Martensen at peakprosperity. Check out his 50 minute crash course too. I have to pour a lot of salt on shadowstats but much of it is pretty good.

BTW, the mighty ship thing bereft of a rudder in the first article is very inaccurate if you know Cloward and Piven, Obama and Vallerie are driving the ship exactly where they want it to go, on purpose, with malice and forethought. Beck was right in 2009 when he said it´s all by design.

There is a trend with the monthly job reports. The first job report is extremely positive and rosey. The second job report comes out a few days later, and is extremely negative and 180 degrees opposite the first.

Here in the Socialist Republic of New York, we see commercials claiming New York to be the fast growing state job wise.

Look around, and the job outlook is terrible so you know which job report is true.

#3, Congratulations to you and Mr. A. I´ll bet Mr. A is sharp as a tack. We old fogeys are the ones who hold a lot of workplaces together. We´re experienced, and we´re not afraid of honest hard work.

A lot of the current obsession with young workers is, in my opinion, based on the ability of managers to manipulate young people, who are generally much less experienced and much less willing to speak up. (I can tell you stories...) Too many managers in Corporate America wants drones, not honest, decent, plain-spoken workers. There is a lot of employment discrimination against workers over 50, and it´s scary for us who have been around a while.

Once again, congratulations.

The Peace Corps’ inspector general says she can’t oversee the agency properly without access to sex-assault records it refuses to hand over. Why won’t the Peace Corps comply? The Peace Corps’ internal watchdog is publicly criticizing the agency for not releasing sexual assault records, which they say is disrupting oversight of an agency that has struggled in the past to protect its volunteers. It’s a worrisome charge, leveled at one of America’s most storied programs by its own inspector general, and is just the latest episode for an organization roiled by exposés about the deaths of its volunteers abroad and the inadequacy

It’s hard for Americans who fought in the war in Iraq to watch the rapid advances being made there by the brutal terrorist force that calls itself the Islamic State. Military veterans of the Iraq War told The Daily Signal that they were heartened that President Obama ordered airstrikes against the Islamic State. But, most said, they remain unsettled by the president’s decision to withdraw — and are concerned that the sacrifices and gains they made for Iraqi freedom were, in one soldier’s words, “for naught.” Besides a series of airstrikes to kill and scatter fighters of the Islamic State — formerly

Superman is America in that he was created by hard-working, exploited immigrants. An examination of the Jewish roots of the Man of Steel. Superman is as American as apple pie, in that both have their origins in the Middle East. Apples, because they are thought to have been first domesticated in Turkey, and Superman, because of his oftentimes overlooked Jewish heritage. Superman’s possible Judaism shouldn’t be a surprise.

Criticisms of President Barack Obama’s approach to race relations are unlikely to fade in the wake of his comments about the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Some black activists say Obama’s response to this and similar situations show that he is too reluctant to address directly issues of race. As he did in the wake of the Trayvon Martin killing and George Zimmerman’s subsequent acquittal, Obama played the role of unifier in his speech at Martha’s Vineyard, condemning the police actions in Ferguson but also urging blacks not to respond with violence. He called for

Online, the deposed Chinese leader´s image is used to sell the kinds of lamps and swords he might have used. A liquor brand has patterned its bottle on Chiang´s memorial in Taipei. Twenty years ago, Chiang was considered an enemy of the people on mainland China. Today, he has become part of mainstream culture - sort of.

Remember back when Democrat Charlie Crist was a Republican running for governor in 2006? He called himself a "Jeb Bush Republican" at the time. There´s a reason for it. Bush helped build the GOP, first in Miami-Dade and then in Florida where he was the first Republican governor in the modern era to serve with a Republican-held House and Senate. Also, unlike Crist and Scott, Bush is an off-the-cuff quote-machine who likes to joust with reporters about policy and politics. The other two guys (Scott more so) are and/or were nothing like Bush as governor. Expect a good dose of Crist-bashing from

The Crisis in Ferguson

Since Robert Draper’s provocative New York Times piece posed the question, national pundits have been consumed by whether the country is experiencing a “libertarian moment.” Their answers have varied, largely based on what they think about libertarianism themselves. If anywhere in America could use a libertarian moment, it is Ferguson, Missouri. That’s where Michael Brown, an eighteen-year-old, unarmed black man, was shot to death by the police. Since then, all hell has broken loose. The police claim Brown was going for the officer’s gun. One eyewitness said all Brown did was instinctively pull away when the officer grabbed him by the throat.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.
