BLS and the Weekly Unemplyment number…

I am sure that everyone has heard about the ABSOLUTE PROPAGANDA from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) that occurred last week.

If you have not:

U.S. jobless rate tumbles to near four-year low” – CNBC

US unemployment below 8 pct, first time since 2009” – CNBC

Here are some quotes from the articles:

The U.S. unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 7.8 percent in September and reached its lowest level since President Barack Obama took office, providing a boost to his re-election bid.”


The U.S. unemployment rate dropped below 8 percent for the first time since the month President Barack Obama took office, a surprising lift for both the economy and his re-election hopes in the final weeks of the campaign.”

First let me say, YES it was unexpected!!!!!!  It was UNEXPECTED because it was NOT TRUE!!!!  Many people called BS on the numbers but ALL of the Obama surrogates claimed that it was a “good number”.  ALL of the MSM printed articles with headlines proclaiming that everything must be getting better because look at the unemployment numbers.  That is until some well-known people started questioning the numbers.  Then the BLS said that one state did not report its numbers.  Huh???  This number is reported EVERY week!!!  There was nothing new last week!!!  Oh wait…this was the LAST MONTHLY JOBS REPORT THAT WOULD MATTER BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!  So, let me see… state did not report its numbers….the number was THE BEST IN ALMOST 4 YEARS….It brought the “unemployment rate” down below 8% FOR THE FIRST TIME UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA…..and we are just supposed to ACCEPT THE PROPAGANDA???

The October jobs report comes out Nov. 2, four days before the election, so Friday’s report provided one of the final snapshots of the economy as undecided voters make up their minds.”

Now we get to this week:

Weekly Jobless Claims Drop Proves to Be Short-Lived” – CNBC

Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits jumped 46,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 388,000, the highest in four months

If you average the two weeks, you get an INCREASE in applications of 8,000 per week (46,000 more minus 30,000 less divide by 2 weeks) NOT INCLUDING ADJUSTMENTS, which are ALREADY 3,000 MORE for last week and I will bet anyone that this weeks will be revised higher as well.  Any takers??  So let me repeat, THERE WAS NO MIRACULOUS RECOVERY LAST WEEK THAT BROUGHT THE REAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE DOWN BELOW 8%.  Anyone that believes these numbers is delusional!!!

What state could have messed this up so bad??  Last week, it was speculated that the state was California.  California denied it.  This week the BLS CONFIRMS THAT IT WAS CALIFORNIA!!  No big deal you say??  What if the “Official” that is in charge of reporting the numbers DONATES THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT TO OBAMA??

Calif. official whose agency under-reported unemployment stats was Obama campaign donor” – The Daily Caller (PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE ARTICLE)

On Oct. 11, the federal government reported that weekly jobless claims were down significantly, suggesting a dramatic national increase in economic growth and a steep decline in layoffs.

The good news for the Obama administration spread quickly, with outlets like CNN and Bloomberg declaring, “Jobless claims fall to four-year low.”

But within hours, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Labor Department analysts announced that one major state had failed to fully document jobless claims. They declined to name the state.”

Speculation among market watchers and economists initially focused on California, but the state’s Employment Development Department strongly denied that it had failed to properly document the data.

“Reports that California failed to fully report data to the U.S. Department of Labor, as required, are incorrect and irresponsible,” California Employment Development Department director Pam Harris said in a statement last week. “The California Employment Development Department, which administers the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program in the state, has reported all UI claims data and submitted the data on time.”

Early Thursday, the federal government finally revealed that California had, in fact, under-reported jobless data, skewing the national jobless claims results.”

According to campaign disclosure records, Morgenstern donated $4,600 — the maximum amount allowed by law — to the 2008 Obama campaign, beginning with a $1,000 contribution to Obama for America in February 2008. Morgenstern followed up that donation with a $1,300 contribution in June, and then a $2,300 payout in early September.”

Say whatever you want about “conspiracy theories”, sometimes STUPID PEOPLE TRY TO DO STUPID THINGS!!!  I cannot remember ANY WEEK WHERE A STATE HAS MISSED THE DEADLINE!!  It just so happens that the one week where it would help Obama, it happens.  Bull Sh*&!!!!

These people belong in prison for TREASON!!!  All of their pensions should be confiscated!!!  If there are no consequences to STEALING elections, the mischief will continue!!
