Jobless claims report, July 8, 2010, Down?, Seasonally adjusted down, Claims up

The Jobless Claims report was released by the US Labor Dept. this morning. Everyone is reporting, and the stock market is rejoicing, that claims were down. Here are the actual numbers.

“In the week ending July 3, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 454,000, a decrease of 21,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 475,000.”

“The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 463,560 in the week ending July 3, an increase of 22,560 from the previous week. There were 581,145 initial claims in the comparable week in 2009.”

This is nothing to shout about:

“The 4-week moving average was 466,000, a decrease of 1,250 from the previous week’s revised average of 467,250.”

US Justice Department corrupt, Blagojevich trial, Patrick Fitzgerald, J Christian Adams, Citizen Wells open thread, July 8, 2010

US Justice Department corrupt, Blagojevich trial, Patrick Fitzgerald, J Christian Adams

We now have multiple confirmations that the US Justice Department is corrupt and racially biased. J Christian Adams and others are speaking out. For well over a year Citizen Wells has been questioning the Justice Dept. and their actions.

Who in the US Justice Dept. made these decisions?

Wait until December 2008, after the elections, to arrest Rod Blagojevich.

Omit the following from the Indictment. The following statement was in the Criminal Complaint. “The Planning Board was a commission of the State of Illinois, established by statute, whose members were appointed by the Governor of the State of Illinois. At the relevant time period, the Planning Board consisted of nine individuals.”

Focus the prosecution of Blagojevich on the selling of the senate seat.

Indicate the trial will end much earlier than expected (month and a half vs three to four months).

And

Why did Judge James Zagel speak out and say that Tony Rezko would be a bad witness?

Was he laying the groundwork for prosecutors not calling Rezko?

Stuart Levine was the main witness in the Rezko trial. Not only was Levine heavily enmeshed in crime and corruption, he was a long time drug user. Criminals and corruption figures are routinely used as witnesses.
