“There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”…Gallup CEO Jim Clifton 

“In February 2015 there were 43,000 fewer white Americans employed, 354,000 more not in the labor force, 96,000 more employed and we added 295,000 jobs? Was Common Core math used?”…Citizen Wells

Two people with vast knowledge of US employment have made statements in the past several years.

Keith Hall ran the Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2008 to 2012.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution August 5, 2013.

“The July government employment report released Friday showed the job market treading water.”And a closer look at one of the two measures the Labor Department uses to gauge employment suggests that part-time work accounted for almost all the job growth that’s been reported over the past six months. …” ‘Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,’ said Keith Hall, a senior researcher at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center. ‘That is really remarkable.’”

Jim Clifton is the CEO of Gallup.

From Gallup February 3, 2015.

“The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment”

“Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.”

Jim Clifton was attacked and ridiculed.

But Clifton was correct.

Websters New World College Dictionary

“The official dictionary of the Associated Press”
Lie definition (noun)
“anything that gives or is meant to give a false impression.”
So why does Janet Yellen, Obama the liar in chief and the media continue to tout the “low” unemployment rate.

It is a big lie!!!

Janet Yellen in her FOMC presentation repeatedly referred to the “low” unemployment rate in the context of strong employment growth as well as the number of “jobs” being added.

“We have seen continued progress toward our objective of maximum employment. The pace of employment growth has remained strong, with job gains averaging nearly 290,000 per month over the past three months. The unemployment rate was 5.5 percent in February; that’s three-tenths lower than the latest reading available at the time of our December meeting.”

http://www.federalreserve.gov/mediacenter/files/FOMCpresconf20150318.pdf

Obama has a long well documented tradition of lying.

The mainstream media is controlled by Big Brother Obama.

So why is Yellen lying?

Let’s examine US employment in the short term and over Obama’s 6 year tenure.

All of this data can be found at the US Labor Dept. BLS site.

The latest report was for February 2015.

The Labor Dept. reported 295,000 jobs added.

However, there was only a 96,000  gain in employment.

And Whites had 43,000  fewer employments!

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

Does Yellen consider this strong employment growth?

That does not even cover new entrants into the labor force.

Remember, there are approx. 4 million people turning 16 each year in the US. This is from people living here and does not count illegals.

From Obama’s first 6 years.

5,205,000 full time employments were lost during the first year of Obama’s occupation of the White House from January 2009 to January 2010?

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.

What about people losing their job?

Averaging 300,000 initial claims each week seems to be a victory to those in government and the media.

From Zero Hedge March 19, 2015.

“After some ‘stability’ in the last few weeks, initial jobless claims in the major shale states has started to rise again with Texas the most impacted for now. Overall initial jobless claims rose very modestly to 291k, but leaves the 4-week average above 300k for the 2nd week in a row – the first time in over 6 months.”

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-19/initial-claims-hold-worst-levels-6-months-shale-state-joblessness-re-surges

I have been concerned for some time that we are not getting the full impact of these numbers.

From the BLS.

Unemployment insurance (UI) programs are administered at the state level and provide assistance to jobless people who are looking for work. Statistics on the insured unemployed in the United States are collected as a by-product of state UI programs. Workers who lose their jobs may file applications to determine if they are eligible for UI assistance. These applications are referred to as “initial claims.” Claimants who meet the eligibility requirements must file “continuing claims” for each week that they seek benefits.

Data on initial and continuing UI claims are maintained by the Employment and Training Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, and are available on the Internet at http://workforcesecurity.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims.asp.

While the UI claims data provide useful information, they are not used to measure total unemployment because they exclude several important groups. To begin with, not all workers are covered by UI programs. For example, self-employed workers, unpaid family workers, workers in certain not-for-profit organizations, and several other small (primarily seasonal) worker categories are not covered.

In addition, the insured unemployed exclude the following:

  1. Unemployed workers who have exhausted their benefits.
  2. Unemployed workers who have not yet earned benefit rights (such as new entrants or reentrants to the labor force).
  3. Disqualified workers whose unemployment is considered to have resulted from their own actions rather than from economic conditions; for example, a worker fired for misconduct on the job.
  4. Otherwise eligible unemployed persons who do not file for benefits.

Because of these and other limitations, statistics on insured unemployment cannot be used as a measure of total unemployment in the United States. Indeed, over the past decade, only about one-third of the total unemployed, on average, received regular UI benefits.”

http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm

The number of people who have lost jobs and in some cases fallen by the wayside may be much higher than we thought.

I hope to report more on this soon.

I know that the mainstream media is not reporting this.

Are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or your favorite talk radio host reporting these facts?

Let me know.

    “Jobless claims suggest labor market still on upswing”

    “The number of people who applied for new unemployment benefits in mid-March remained below a key threshold that signals a much improved labor market, indicating that companies continue to hire at a rapid clip despite mounting signs the U.S. economy’s growth may have slowed in the first quarter.”

    Really??

    Common core reasoning?

  3. DEVELOPING: Several Admirals and Generals Accusing Obama of Treason…

    “I have posted at least 4-5 stories where on SEPARATE OCCASIONS where one of the military’s highest decorated officers , Admiral Lyons, has come forward and accused Obama of crimes ranging from Treason, to Colluding with the Enemy, to Supplying the enemy with Stinger Missiles. For anyone who wants to get smart with me, and ask who I mean by “the enemy” I am referring to Al Qaeda! Admiral Lyons has been telling anyone who will listen, that Obama has committed TREASON! I myself have said since the DAY WE LEARNED 400 STINGER MISSILES EN ROUTE TO TERRORISTS WOUND UP MISSING FROM THE BENGHAZI EMBASSY, that it would be THOSE events that one day Obama would answer for. I take that back now. I think at this point the only Admiral Lyons has not told to get Obama are the men who used to be under his command. He should have them storm the White House and drag Obama out in cuffs. I pray that day comes soon.”

  4. This one is a real eye-opener!

    About Medicare
    Obamacare, As Seen By an Engineer

    Notes from an Engineer
    I’m a 54 year old consulting engineer and make between $60,000 and $125,000 per year, depending on how hard I work and whether or not there are work projects out there for me.

    My girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a part-time mail clerk.

    For me, making $60,000 a year, under ObamaCare, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I can buy, which also happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per month.

    For my girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per month. That’s right, $1 per month. I’m not making this up.

    Don’t believe me? Just go to http://www.coveredca.gov , the ObamaCare website for California and enter the parameters I’ve mentioned above and see for yourself. By the way, my zip code is 93940. You’ll need to enter that.

    So OK, clearly ObamaCare is a scheme that involves putting the cost burden of healthcare onto the middle and upper-income wage earners. But there’s a lot more to it. Stick with me.

    And before I make my next points, I’d like you to think about something:

    I live in Monterey County, in Central California. We have a large land mass but just 426,000 residents – about the population of Colorado Springs or the city of Omaha.

    But we do have a large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a massive, Federally subsidized county medical complex that takes up an area about one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile assembly plant in Belvedere, Illinois (see Google Earth View). Natividad has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room, and much more. If you have no insurance, if you’ve been in a drive-by shooting or have overdosed on crack cocaine, this is where you go. And it’s essentially free, because almost everyone who ends up in the ER is uninsured.

    Last year, 2,735 babies were born at Natividad. 32% of these were born to out-of-wedlock teenage mothers, 93% of which were Hispanic. Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of citizenship, and 71% listed their native language as Spanish. Of these 876 births, only 40 were covered under [any kind of] private health insurance. The taxpayers paid for the other 836. And in case you were wondering about the entire population – all 2,735 births – less than 24% involved insured coverage or even partial payment on behalf of the patient to the hospital in exchange for services. Keep this in mind as we move forward.

    Now consider this:

    If I want to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what I had with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month. But my girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4 per month. That’s right, $4 per month. $48 per year for a zero-deductible, premium healthcare policy – the kind of thing you get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM employees pay an average of $170 per month out of pocket for their coverage).

    I mean, it’s bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the ObamaCare scheme in the first place. But even if I agreed with the basic scheme, which of course I do not, I would never agree to subsidize premium policies. If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy, I sure as hell do not want the guy I’m subsidizing to get a better policy, for less that 1% of what I have to fork out each month for a low-end policy.

    Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other guy gets for a dollar? And why should the other guy get to buy an $886 policy for $4 a month? Think about this: I have to pay $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy can get for $48. $10,000 of net income is 60 days of full time work as an engineer. $48 is something I could could pay for collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one day a month.
    Are you with me on this? Are you starting to get an idea what ObamaCare is really about?

    ObamaCare is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system. That’s just the cover story. The real story is that it is a massive, political power grab. Do you think anyone who can insure himself with a premium policy for $4 a month will vote for anyone but the political party that provides him such a deal? ObamaCare is about enabling, subsizdizing, and expanding the Left’s political power base, at taxpayer expense. Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat if I can have babies for $4 a month? For that matter, why would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if it means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage? Heck, why study engineering when I can be a schlub for $20K per year and buy a new F-150 with all the money I’m saving?

    And think about those $4-a-month babies – think in terms of propagation models. Think of just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated mothers. Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle physicists from the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops, criminal courts and prisons? One thing you can be certain of: At $4 a month, they’ll multiply, and multiply, and multiply.

    ObamaCare: It’s all about political power, and income redistribution.

  5. HMMMMMM……
    I can’t help wonder who the engineer voted for. I didn’t see any reference to that!

  6. Fascinating, Bob Strauss. Thanks for sharing. Just think, when I went to high school in Maryland, there was one Hispanic in my entire graduating class. Now the whole high school is overrun with Hispanics. When I took Spanish in high school, there was no one to speak Spanish with. Now, there is almost no one to speak English with. But of course, I must be a racist for even pointing that out.

    By whom?
    Illegal aliens?
    **********************
    CW, I’m slow catching up here lately due to major changes in living arrangement. Now I know you are referring to the post about Obama’s “mandatory voting” proposition. Since then, the W.H. is trying to walk it back somewhat. But you are right – Illegal aliens, mostly.

  8. Tina
    Short true story,
    Last Saturday I went to my bank to make a deposit. Then, I noticed that there were over forty people in line… and guess what??
    I was the only cracker in the line, the rest were field workers…legal or illegal?
    But that’s ok, they were all cashing their payroll checks.

  10. I believe it hapnHal. A few years back, I took my step-Dad to the DMV to get a senior ID. I finally convinced him that at 90 he should not be driving with his memory loss. He was born in Chicago and in 1918. Legend has it his ancestors fought in the American Revolution. He was the most American sounding person at the DMV. But they looked over his documents over and over trying to find a reason to deny him his ID. I think he and I were the only ones there who were actually born in the US. The people behind the counter spoke with heavy accents too. And they were trying to keep him from getting his ID. Finally, we walked out with it. It is a crazy world we live in.

    “Janet Yellen: Either Lying or Incompetent”

    “It’s an astounding series of comments, coming from the woman in charge of US monetary policy. What’s even more astounding is that it appears Yellen actually believes this stuff, which indicates that she either A) doesn’t read the news or look at price charts for items or B) has no idea how to interpret data or C) is a liar.”
