“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”…Aldous Huxley

“Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”… Joseph Goebbels

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

 

 

The same dumbed down low information people who believe the lies about the Ferguson incident believe the lies being told about the economy and jobs situation.

Sadly, even so called more educated folks believe and regurgitate reports on the economy and jobs provided by the BLS and mainstream media.

Once again, thanks to Zero Hedge for this article.

“Should You Believe What They Tell You? Or What You See?”

“Sometimes I wish I could just passively accept what my government monarchs and their mainstream media mouthpieces feed me on a daily basis. Why do I have to question everything I’m told? Life would be much simpler and I could concentrate on more important things like the size of Kim Kardashian’s ass, why the Honey Boo Boo show was canceled, the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, whether I’ll get a better deal on Chinese slave labor produced crap on Black Thanksgiving, Black Friday, or Cyber Monday, fantasy football league standings, the latest NFL player to knockout their woman and get reinstated, Obama’s latest racial healing plan, which Clinton or Bush will be our next figurehead president, or the latest fake rape story from Rolling Stone. The willfully ignorant masses, dumbed down by government education, lured into obesity by corporate toxic packaged sludge disguised as food products, manipulated, controlled and molded by an unseen governing class of rich men, and kept docile through never ending corporate media propaganda, are nothing but pawns to the arrogant sociopathic pricks pulling the wires in this corporate fascist empire of debt.”

“The level of data massaging by the government and their co-conspirators on Wall Street and in the corporate media is a futile attempt at a happy ending that will never come to fruition. The intensity and relentlessness with which the state and its quasi-state minions attempt to paint a false picture of economic recovery is equal parts arrogance and desperation. The arrogance is a function of successfully pulling off the greatest heist in world history from 2003 through 2008 with no adverse consequences, no criminal charges, no penalties for their crimes, and more power and wealth than they had prior to 2003. The only way to stop sociopaths is to throw them in jail or kill them. In our dystopian paradise of greed, they were rewarded with trillions in rescue packages by their cohorts in crime at the Federal Reserve and in Congress. They’ve paid themselves billions in bonuses for gorging at the Federal Reserve trough of QE and ZIRP. The desperation is borne from the fact that after $7.5 trillion of debt added by the Federal government and $3.5 trillion of debt created by the Federal Reserve since 2009, the Greater Depression for average Americans deepens by the day.

The men pulling the strings behind the scenes are drunk with power and their hubris allows them to believe their own infallibility and blinds them to the dire consequences for our country when their debt Ponzi scheme fails. But, as we grow ever closer to the day of reckoning, they will use every means at their disposal to paint a positive picture, regardless of the facts and reality for the average person. The examples of twisting, distorting and outright lying about the economic reality of our times are endless. These are some of the major false storylines peddled by our benevolent corporate fascist leaders:

The BLS reported 321,000 jobs added in November and the unemployment rate at 5.8%. Jobs are plentiful, based upon these statistics.

A skeptical critical thinking individual might ask a few questions or point out a few inconvenient facts the government purveyors of propaganda might not want us to ponder:

  • The non-manipulated, non-seasonally adjusted number of jobs in November FELL by 270,000. The BLS added 600,000 jobs as an adjustment to achieve the headline grabbing result.
  • If the jobs market is so good, why is the labor participation rate at a 30 year low of 62.8%?
  • Since 2007 the number of working age Americans has risen by 17 million, while the number of employed has risen by less than 1 million, but the unemployment rate is about the same.
  • Why would almost 14 million working age Americans leave the labor force since 2007 if the economy is booming and jobs plentiful, with 1.2 million leaving in the last 12 months?
  • Why would payroll tax receipts be flat with last year if millions of new jobs have been created?
  • If the country has really added 8 million jobs since 2010, how could real median household income FALL by 2.3%?”

 

“According to the government reported figures, the economy hasn’t been this strong since 2007. GDP has supposedly grown at greater than 4% over the last two quarters.

Anyone who is sentient knows consumer spending accounts for 68% of GDP. Capital investments that lead to long term prosperity continue to decline as a percentage of GDP from 20% in 2000 to 16% today. We’ve chosen consumption and financialization over savings and investment. This fact leads to some observations:

  • If GDP has actually grown by 20% since 2008 how does this correlate with a 6.9% decline in real median household income?
  • GDP has been goosed by a $69 billion increase in government spending, with the majority going to the military industrial complex. ISIS has been a godsend for our GDP and arms dealer profits.
  • GDP was increased retroactively by $500 billion last year based on a new way the government accounts for intangibles.
  • The surge in consumer expenditures over the last two quarters has been in the purchase of services. The higher costs for Obamacare are a boon for GDP. Are they a boon for your bank account?
  • The trade deficit has fallen as exports of petroleum products have temporarily provided a boost to GDP. The collapse in oil prices will reverse that trend rapidly.”

  6. CITIZENWELLS…good morning wells……

    You said…”“I am convinced that if squirrels had opposable thumbs, that based on their superior intellect, they would be overqualified to be journalists in the mainstream media”…Citizen Wells”

    That’s a GREAT quote….I have never heard it put that way before….I shall remember it and always give you the credit for the quote…….

    And beside that…….it’s a damn true statement !!!

    But be they vermin…large or small…they are still vermin….squirrels, or congressmen…or main stream media journalist……take your pick ! They are all just a little nutty.

  7. Good morning RMinNC, et al.

  8. The quote, one I came up with several years ago, was my way of describing the intellect level of many in journalism.
    It does not attempt to ID integrity.
    Sorry for any insults to Squirrels.

  9. hahahaha…… I don’t think the squirrels will take it wrongly……you may not get the same response from the journalist though…..

  10. This taken from an article at Brietbart this morning.

    Any Republican who backed the Obama-Boehner cromnibus bill that backs Obama’s executive amnesty with full funding, however, could be in grave political danger in the years ahead. Nationally syndicated radio host Laura Ingraham, who played an integral role in taking down now former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, promised to take down as many of them as she can. She says:

    We will not forget the betrayal. There will come a time you will come calling on us, you will need us to help you, and when that day comes, don’t be surprised if many of those rock-ribbed conservative across the country will not answer the call to help you because you’ve beaten them down so badly, and you’ve betrayed them so horribly that their going to think, “ya know, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, you’re not going to fool me a third time. I’m not that cheap of a date.” Respect has to go both ways. We respect you when you respect us and this is an act of utter disrespect.

  11. Honor, good for Laura! I think most of us here feel the same way. How could Boehner lead the troops to pass something that Obama was pushing? This is beyond the pale. The problem is that this will continue in the 114th
    Congress unless the conservatives in the House are able to replace the Speaker with someone who is not already bought and sold.

    Just think! This Cromnibus bill was so large that there was not time for the representatives to read it. When have we heard that before with the Dem-controlled Congress? What a disaster that was. This will be, too.

  12. RMINNC…….
    BTW there was some stuff that the liberals putinto the funding bill that had nothing to do with funding the government ,but EVERYTHING to do with EAVESDROPPING on your PRIVATE EMAILS……..byebye 1st amendment. I have felt a renewed wish for LONGEVITY,out of total anger towards what is going on. I will take very special pleasure in watching each and every one of the BASTARDS reap their just deserts. I will not be the person dispensing their punishment but you can rest assurred I will be WATCHING closely, and relishing every second.
    At the same time I am praying that the BASTARD who set the teen age girl on fire, will meet his/her penalty in EXACTLY the same manner. (such punishment is looked upon as AN EYE FOR AN EYE,and it should become a standard practice in America). (Kill somebody by stabbing them 57 times, and that will be the PERPETRATORS sentence with same axact instrument as well.). Yet our GOODY TWO SHOES upper crust will never allow it. They think that the enemies of our country should be read their (ALLEGED) rights,even when captured on the battlefield. It is the GOODY TWO SHOES sort of a$$holes who are the REAL ENEMIES of America. I would bet that a few publicly watched executions in COURTHOUSE SQUARE would do a hell of a lot towards driving down violent crime.

  13. Honor first
    Laura Ingraham got it exactly right. Three cheers for Laura!

  15. Somebody help me here. Obamacare was created with deceit, was promoted with lies, was unconstitutionally legislated in the Senate and was approved as a tax by the Supreme Court. And then “Obama” with no constitutional authority changes the LAW multiple times and now the Congress will fund it?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, Obama issues an unfunded and unconstitutional executive action to give taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens and the Congress says OK. Then to ice the cake, taxpayers are going to be left with backing bullship IOU inflated made up derivatives for the banksters which will certainly default with the way the economy is dying. We the People need a Convention of States to do away with this current criminal Federal Government.

  16. DSP2…..

    We are in a whole lot of trouble my friend…We have no laws….we have no legal president…..we have no money, but keep giving the stuff away like a drunken sailor….we have no lawful judges…….with a record like this……

    It won’t be long before……we have no country.

  17. Ladies and gentlemen…..on you knees or else…….

  18. DSP2……….
    ……more like 50 state SECESSION from the SO CALLED UNION. It would take 15 minutes to disenfranchise the NUT CASES at the WACKEY HOUSE,and about the same amount of time to dissolve the alleged Congress. …….after which ALL FEDERAL judges are removed from the bench, then an interim government formed to manage until a new government can be established using our established Constitution as the building foundation. All laws existing prior to 2008 to be returned to original wording,and formally reinstated as such. All executive orders are no longer applicable,and are NULL AND VOID. This time we do NOT ALLOW “overeducated wordsmiths” to legislate law. Every law will be passed, or rejected by REFERENDUM of the majority. In short it would take very little time to end the BULLSHI# which we see going on at the wackey house as well as both LOONEY HOUSES. They would ALL BE unemployed. HAR HAR HAR. When forming the new government we also formally declare ALL DEBTS as PAID, and no longer collectable, after which we print new money based on gold,and start over with maximum credit spending limits imposed upon ALL Americans. What is going on now will NEVER END, until the American people put an end to it. If it continues eventually your money will not be worth the paper it is printed on……just ask GERMANY about that subject if you want to learn the truth about monetary responsibility.

  19. OLDSAILOR82….

    My comment in my last post had no reference to you my friend…..it has always been a reference to spending money our county does not have…..

    I have always held a great amount of pride in our US Navy…..without them we most likely would have lost the Pacific and many other areas of contention….many of my retired military friends are Navy…we look at our military efforts as a team effort.

  20. ADDENDUM…….
    A renewed Cristian faith in America shall be based upon THE OLD TESTAMENT= AN EYE FOR AN EYE. Criminal penalty shall be exactly as the perpetrator done. YES there is a WAY to RESTORE America to it’s original stature………..HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE INTESTINAL FORTITUDE?……..HOW MANY WILL BE TOO BUSY TO ACT?….. HOW MANY SIMPLY WON’T EVEN GIVE A DAMN?

  21. TYPO ……..CRISTIAN =NO ……..CHRISTIAN= YES.

  22. RMINNC………
    I knew that was what you meant anyway. Didn’t bother me!

  23. In my comment regarding SECESSION,it should be understood that ANY FORM of such action WILL BE EXTREMELY PAINFUL…….however when you take a little time to think it through I believe that most people would agree that it would probably be the…… LEAST PAINFUL.!

  24. DSP2…….
    Here is a thought for you……..If a law is UNCONSTITUTIONALY LEGISLATED,and UNCONSTITUTIONALY PASSED, it ENDS UP AS….NOTHING. Simple logic,and reason says that it has no legal FOUNDATION either, no matter whose,or how many signatures appear at the bottom of the so called bill.! That is the primary reason why Soetoro can change it at will. In actuality he is changing NOTHING,BECAUSE IT IS NOTHING TO BEGIN WITH, THEREFORE HE CANNOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR CHANGING WHAT DOESN’T LEGALLY EXIST.That is why SCOTUS can call it a TAX……THEY CHOSE TO CALL IT A TAX BECAUSE in truth that is what it really is. When Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.IMPORTANT stated that it was necessary to PASS the bill to learn what was in it I knew then that it could not be legally passed ,or have legal viability thereafter. Every bill is REQUIRED to be read, before PASSAGE. Further I am fairly certain that Jonathan Gruber knows this as well. In reality the ACA is an ILLEGAL TAX that has been imposed upon America, out of which the supporters of Soetoro will receive a FREE LIVING,at the expense of the working class. That is one reason why I believe that when the FREEBIES STOP, Ferguson riots will seem like children playing…….and there will be only one alternative!……Not pretty!

  25. BTW the officer who fired the shot at the 12 year old who was waving a toy look alike firearm in the air had been ordered to put it down ….SEVERAL TIMES by the BLACK OFFICER who shot the kid dead. Where is all the black rioting…..where is Al Sharpton, where are all the relatives screaming BURN THIS BITCH DOWN. Instead they have filed a HUGE lawsuit against the city of Cleveland. The officer could not tell if the weapon was real or not…..he decided not to wait and see. When the little punk pointed it at the officer the officer was COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED in firing at the youth. Yet the city of Cleveland will most likely pay the law suit,and the officer will face the possibility of LIFE in prison………just because the parents of the little punk were AWOL. I expect that eventually there will be new laws written which STILL will ALLOW AN OFFICER to fire upon a person who he perceives is about to try to harm him……and it will PASS whether the ILLITERATE blacks like it or not…..and it will still be enforced. If a lethal weapon is pointed at an officer he can legally fire first to protect himself. Unfortunately the blacks think he cannot legally fire upon a person until that person has already fired upon him,at which point the officer could be DEAD. In my state the officer need only PERCEIVE INTENT. There is NO GREY AREA in the SELF DEFENSE LAW.

  26. When we look at the scholastics figures relating to black kids in school there is almost a 50% drop out rate, even in elementary school. Often a kid is on the street and involvesd with gang activity at 12 years of age. These youngsters grow up illiterate and haven’t the slightest idea what the word LAW even means let alone know anything about it. Many have extremely limited vocabularies, and this also puts them “out of phase” with the rest of the kids(black,white red,or yellow) who remain in school. In Cleveland it is entirely possible that the kid was a punk who had already bombed out of school,and was literally running wild on the streets and in the parks. The primary reason for all of this is EXCESSIVE ABSENTEEISM of the KID’S PARENT,or parents, if both are living together. Many youngsters these days do not know their father.

    DSP2,
    You left out the part where the Obamacare bill was signed into law by an illegal alien usurper, who is not qualified as a natural born Citizen to even be President.

  28. Lord……Ain’t it the truth……

    I hope with all my heart and soul that Bohner is kicked out as Speaker in Jan. otherwise it will be the same old stuff….talk out of both side of his moutn as he sheds those great big tears…….

    We need a REAL Republican in that position.

  29. Jonah…….
    Hope things where you are are cooling down a skoshi bit. I read where a lot of the shop owners are not going to re open. A couple were financially ruined by the MORONS. Really sad……you spend a large part of your life building something, and SLIME like Al Sharpton,and the PUNK’S alleged step father have to see it burning. I call such people exactly what they are …..BASTARDS……BASTARDS……BASTARDS! At some point in their moronic lives hopefully we will live to watch them all receive their just rewards.

  30. RMINNC…….
    We don’t need a Republican as much as we need a MAN with a set of gonads the size of Hereford bull, and with a strong dislike for then morons around him.

  31. TYPO…..insert words FULL GROWN ahead of Hereford
    typo then= no………..THE = yes

  32. Jonah…….
    Arpaio has won a battle, and hopefully he will win the war as well. Lately I have begun to have some doubts about his sincerety,but I have not yet BURNED THE BRIDGE,or nailed the door closed. We shall see! Given the increasing level of liberal bickering amongst themselves,it would appear that they are in denial of their recent clean out from Congress,as well as at state levels.
