Greensboro News Record AP article Employment statistics show hiring is strong, August 29, 2014, Orwellian extrapolation, 11.5 million more not in labor force since Jan 2009, Could step up hiring?

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“The Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones. As for the third message, it referred to a very simple error which could be set right in a couple of minutes. As short a time ago as February, the Ministry of Plenty had issued a promise (a ‘categorical pledge’ were the official words) that there would be no reduction of the chocolate ration during 1984. Actually, as Winston was aware, the chocolate ration was to be reduced from thirty grammes to twenty at the end of the present week. All that was needed was to substitute for the original promise a warning that it would probably be necessary to reduce the ration at some time in April.”…George Orwell, “1984”


“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″



There were 11.5 million more people not in the labor force in July 2014 than there were in January 2009 when Obama took the White House.

Of course there are going to be fewer layoffs.

There are fewer people working, payrolls have already been cut to the bone and there are more part time jobs.

The labor force participation rate has dropped 2.8 percent.

I expect the AP to take the questionable data and spin it in Orwellian fashion.

For example:

“When employers hold onto their workers, it suggests they are more confident in the economy and could step up hiring.”


Pigs could fly if properly equipped.

I was disappointed to find the following headline over the AP regurgitated article in the Greensboro News Record.

“Employment statistics show hiring is strong”

Here is the same article on the internet from CBS 46 Atlanta.

“The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits slipped 1,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 298,000, a low level that signals employers are cutting few jobs and hiring is likely to remain strong.

The four-week average, a less volatile measure, dropped to 299,750, the Labor Department said Thursday. That’s just 6,000 higher than four weeks ago, when the average fell to the lowest level in more than eight years.

“The downward trend … is now clear and strong,” said Ian Shepherdson, an economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. Shepherdson forecasts that employers added 250,000 jobs this month.

Applications are a proxy for layoffs. When employers hold onto their workers, it suggests they are more confident in the economy and could step up hiring.

The applications data is the latest sign that the job market is steadily healing. Employers have added an average of 230,000 jobs a month this year, up from an average of 195,000 in 2013. Average job gains since February have been the best in eight years.

The unemployment rate ticked up to 6.2 percent in July from 6.1 percent in June. But that was because more Americans began looking for work. Most didn’t immediately find jobs, but the rising number of job seekers suggests that people are growing more confident about their prospects.”

    Have a blessed Labor Day weekend.

  2. citizenwells

    What an insult to the American people for the misleading employment article for Labor Day.

    To the AP & news outlets that regurgitated the Orwellian article.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. If true, this is very serious but not surprising – Threat of IMMINENT ATTACK:

    Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border
    By Andrew C. McCarthy

    Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.


  6. BREAKING: Government Leak Reveals ISIS Is In Mexico And Preparing For Attack On U.S.
    “It’s coming very soon…”



    This reminds me of Hitler’s “youth camps”…same methods now being used by ISIS to indoctrinate innocent kids into cold blooded killers…

    God will not look favorable upon this…nor will he tolerate it for long.

  9. Warning!

    This morning, the Muslim Brotherhood warned our country that if the
    More from ISIS

    United States continued meddling in Syria, Egypt ,Libya, and other potential hot spots in the Middle East, they intend to cut off America’s supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers.

    If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T, and AOL customer service reps.

    Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened to not send us anymore presidents.

    It’s gonna get ugly, people.

  10. HapnHal…….
    Here is something for you to look at, Lembergh,Blanco,Landrieu, and McCaskill………they all look as though they have a common father……..they all have the same stupid expressions on their faces 24/7,and their dairy air (SPARE TIRES)causes them to struggle in getting through the kitchen door. Just hand each of the aforementioned,a battleaxe,and post them at the Mexican border. When ISIS catches a sight of them they will curse allah and run as fast as they can to Guatamala.

  12. Jonah,
    Thanks for the excellent article about Muslim influence upon the Indian tribes. The history of our government’s involvement re. the reservations is very troubling, to say the least, and now that Turkey is reaching out to the tribes to promote business relationships, there is more to worry about.

    GORDO is ok.
    Heard from recently.

  15. Good morning all!

    Good news about Gordo. Miss him. Wondering about Mr Bill. Miss him too.

  16. Maybe Sluggo got em.

  17. Way OT, but it is not often that one receives such an e-mail as this. If you like horses, you’ll love it. Something really nice for a holiday weekend.

    One of God’s Beautiful Magnificent Creatures…………
    Too magnificent not to send on, you’ll love the music as well, beautifully put together.

    These horses were originally bred as “war horses” in the days of knights and armour. As armour got heavier, bigger horses were needed and the Friesian almost became extinct. They are back and are one of the most beautiful horses in stature as well as gait.

    What gorgeous animals!!

    Just watching them becomes an emotional experience. Can you imagine what it would be like to ride one? Their manes and tails are the longest that I have seen and I noticed that when performing on grass, their hoofs do not kick up a divot, as they land flat footed.

    Creatures such as these are what makes this world so special. These horses are native to the Netherlands. Have your audio on.

  18. OT but IMPORTANT……
    AND NOW………..It begins! Take a long look at what is happening in Maryland because soon it will be happening all over the US wherever the illegals were flown to. Remember all the various places to which illegals were flown,or bussed into,well be it known they are the nucleus of the soon to happen PROTESTS where the CHANT “NO DEPORT,NO DEPORT” will be heard over, and over and soon thereafter while grinning like a “SHI# EATING DOG”,Soetoro will sign his executive order which will GRANT AMNESTY to about 50,000,000 ILLEGALS. Hope all the DO GOODERS like what will soon follow,a whopping tax increase to pay for all the FREE LIVES they will be supporting in addition to their own. It is happening much faster than I ever imagined,and when he signs his EXECUTIVE ORDER he will also sign a WARRANT. I will leave that to your imagination. Get ready folks HELL is ON IT’S WAY. Hopefully I will already be DEAD AND GONE! WE are fast losing our country. But hell why even give a damn when you can live for FREE. Just remember these words “When you accept something for FREE there is always an ulterior motive in the mind of the giver”. Sometimes he is only getting his trash hauled for free,but more often than not it is a subtle way of drawing you into something which you have no knowledge of. Hope I didn’t ruin anybody’s weekend. ENJOY

  19. …….If you choose to lick the enemy’s stinking feet,cringe,whine,and tuck your tail between your legs then you deserve EVERYTHING that you get. However keep in mind you will be among the first casualties,because the enemy has NO RESPECT for COWARDS,OR you can choose to fight! If and when you take your stand you must take as many of the enemy as you possibly can, before you fall in battle….simply because if enough people do this the human cost to the enemy will become so huge that the he will never be able to successfully impose his designs upon you, and very likely he will NEVER TRY AGAIN!

  20. CabbyAZ
    The Royal Lippizann Stallions has always fascinated me big time. They are a breed that is associated with Spanish heritage. They have toured the US many times,and I think possibly soon again. They draw huge audiences everywhere they appear.

  21. ……BYE BYE ……….
    ……everybody have a great Labor Day……..DON’T DO ANY LABOR ON THIS DAY! HAR HAR

  22. citizenwells | August 30, 2014 at 9:48 am |

    thanks…that is great news!

  23. Watch: ISIS Could Be Crossing The Border Soon If Obama Doesn’t Take Sheriff Joe’s Advice
    Sheriff Joe means business…

  24. Have a question I hope someone here can answer. Were medical personnel subject to the draft in years past?

  25. Get ready for more riots in MO, the usurper will be furious.

    First openly gay NFL draftee without team…

  26. When I read earlier today that the Saudi King warned that Europe could be attacked by ISIS in a month and the U.S. in the next month after that, it came to me why isn’t the King saying anything about Saudi Arabia being attacked?
    This could well be the reason. It makes sense.

    King’s bombshell warning to West neglects to tell whole story


  27. Jonah……..
    During WW2 and into the Korean war, ALL male persons who were at lest 18 years of age were required to register for the draft. With respect to medical personell, I believe that most who were certified, or licensed medical people were still subject to the draft,but most fulfilled their draft obligations in various medical facilities. Some who were only premed,and/or students were utilised to some extent as battlefield MEDICS. The Navy used a lot of them as HOSPITAL CORPSMEN. The draft was only an (18 month stint, Army or Marine Corps).Navy was always a 4 year adventure. If a person was a rated member of a National Guard unit, he was still under draft obligation but many of these units were never called up to fight. I heard that a few specialised units (ORDNANCE) were activated to look after explosives arsenals. I hope that I have shed a tiny ray of light on your question.

  28. Jonah…….
    I also forgot to mention the student,medical,or critical job deferrments, which a few were able to acquire, particulary more into the war in Viet Nam. Companies who were supply side contractors to the DOD, could ask for draft deferrments,for key personell, and those who applied many received draft deferrments.

  30. Arctic Ice Cap Expands by 41 Percent in Two Years; Al Gore Thought It Might Be Gone by Now

    By Tom Blumer | August 30, 2014

    Ice, ice baby. That’s what they have a lot more of in the Arctic.

    The UK Daily Mail, one of those British tabloids the left has despised going back to the Clinton administration and its paranoia about a right-wing media conspiracy, reports from authoritative sources — the kind the U.S. establishment press uses when it seems to support the hoax known as human-caused global warming — that the Arctic ice cap has expanded rapidly in the past two years. In doing so, it has made up all of what was lost between 2009 and 2012 with a slight margin to spare. Seven years ago, former Vice President and leading global warming false alarmist Al Gore predicted that “It could be completely gone.”

    Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago…despite Al Gore’s prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now
    – Seven years after former US Vice-President Al Gore’s warning, Arctic ice cap has expanded for second year in row
    – An area twice the size of Alaska – America’s biggest state – was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice
    – These satellite images taken from University of Illinois’s Cryosphere project show ice has become more concentrated

    The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’

    Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

    But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

    To put it another way, an area the size of Alaska, America’s biggest state, was open water two years ago, but is again now covered by ice.

    The most widely used measurements of Arctic ice extent are the daily satellite readings issued by the US National Snow and Ice Data Center, which is co-funded by Nasa. These reveal that – while the long-term trend still shows a decline – last Monday, August 25, the area of the Arctic Ocean with at least 15 per cent ice cover was 5.62 million square kilometres.

    This was the highest level recorded on that date since 2006 … and represents an increase of 1.71 million square kilometres over the past two years – an impressive 43 per cent.

    Other figures from the Danish Meteorological Institute suggest that the growth has been even more dramatic. Using a different measure, the area with at least 30 per cent ice cover, these reveal a 63 per cent rise – from 2.7 million to 4.4 million square kilometres.

    … as well as becoming more extensive, the ice has grown more concentrated, with the purple areas – denoting regions where the ice pack is most dense – increasing markedly.

    Crucially, the ice is also thicker, and therefore more resilient to future melting.

    In that Nobel acceptance speech, Gore infamously said:

    … the earth has a fever. And the fever is rising. The experts have told us it is not a passing affliction that will heal by itself. We asked for a second opinion. And a third. And a fourth. And the consistent conclusion, restated with increasing alarm, is that something basic is wrong.

    We are what is wrong, and we must make it right.

    No sir. Your assertions are “what is wrong,” and the only way to “make it right” is to back away from them and face the truth. Another key element of the truth is that there has been no net global warming, human-caused or otherwise, for 17 years and 10 months.

    Sadly, the Daily Mail’s dispatch proves that relying on the U.S. establishment press in the hope of being fully informed is a futile enterprise. The chances that they will call out Gore for his fearmongering are between slim and none.

    WASHINGTON – It’s an explosive charge, one that puts the president’s motives into question.

    A former CIA agent bluntly told WND, America has switched sides in the war on terror under President Obama.

    Clare Lopez was willing to say what a few members of Congress have confided to WND in private, but declined to say on-the-record.

    She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates.


  35. $13 trillion dollar fraud! Arrest Al Gore!

    The models that Gore based his apocalyptic vision on were obviously, um…flawed. Or crazy. They are the same models by the same people that global warming hysterics are using to advocate policies that would siphon off $13 trillion dollars over the next decade and a half to pay for the effects of climate change.
    It wouldn’t surprise me if arctic ice levels shrank next year, nor would it surprise me if they increased again. The difference is, if levels shrink, there will be hysterical editorials claiming we have to do something about climate change. If levels expand, we won’t hear a peep from the climate change advocates.
    Just like today.

  36. America’s Hopelessly Corrupt Political-Media Culture
    August 29, 2014
    by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD August 28, 2014
    The United States has dire problems at home and perilous threats from abroad, all of which are solvable, but not with the politicians who are now wielding the power and the journalists who are controlling the national dialogue, few of whom serve the interests of the country or tell the American people the truth.
    For Democrats, the only things Americans have in common are our differences. They attain and maintain power by practicing tribal politics, emphasizing and exploiting divisions based on race, ethnicity, gender and income. A united and healthy America is an anathema to the Democratic Party.

    Democrats do not offer coherent policies to address national issues, but present a collection of simultaneous arguments embracing grievances and entitlements for which no solutions are ever sufficient and whose demands for redress become ever more extreme.

    Democrats are progressive because, in order to preserve their voter base, they must move progressively further and further to the left, inventing new crises, creating greater resentment, telling bigger lies and applying more and more coercion in order to implement their increasingly radical agenda.

    Obama: No ISIS Strategy, but has Strategy to Shut Down Every Coal Plant in America
    Truer words were never spoken! Anything he WANTS to do, he develops the strategy. So why does he not accept the various plans presented to him by the military? He doesn’t want to.

    Why? A fair question. What’s a fair answer? Because he doesn’t want to be aggressive against ISIS – plain and simple.

    Sometime ago I posed the question, “What would Obama do if all of a sudden he was threatened by an eminent attack on a U.S. city by, say, Iran?”
    (That was before ISIS had made its debut of savagery.) If Iran were to give him 24 hours to surrender our sovereignty or face the nuclear destruction of Chicago or NYC, I think we probably have now a hint as to what he would do. NOTHING.

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air
