Big Shock: Liberal Press Deceptive in Unemployment Rate Reports Yet Again

If anyone knows any high level Republicans and conservatives, can you please  help me teach them that we must create our own avenues for information to flow  so we can lower the number of low information voters? Can you ask them to stop  waiting for the liberal, dishonest press to give them and their message a fair  shake?

On Friday morning the Chicago Tribune sent out this email alert  regarding a “breaking story”:

It was easy to guess how excited that news editor must have been at the Trib;  “Our man Barack is succeeding!”

POLL: Is the internet destroying the power of the Mainstream Media?


At the same moment, the headline at the Drudge Report gave the real  story:

Matt Drudge certainly has his own biases, but he also has a good sense of  humor. It’s easy to assume he saw that morning’s liberal media headlines, read  the reports, and then wrote his own headline.

Liberal Bloomberg’s headline was funny too, in a different way:

Hiring in U.S. Kicks Into Higher Gear as Unemployment Plunges to  6.3%

Here’s the opening sentence:

The job-creation engine kicked into higher gear  as U.S. employers boosted payrolls in April by the most in two years and the  jobless rate plunged to the lowest since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

Yippee! God save the king!

If you stuck with the article until paragraph nine you learn why the “plunge”  in the percentage:

The drop in the unemployment rate from March’s  6.7 percent came as the agency’s survey of households showed the labor force  shrank by more the 800,000 in April. The so-called participation rate, which  indicates the share of working-age people in the labor force, decreased to 62.8  percent, matching the lowest level since 1978, from 63.2 percent a month  earlier.

Anyone who is serious about learning the facts has had plenty of time to  understand that the Obama-era version of the unemployment rate is not what it  was pre-Obama. More people give up looking for work, drop out of the work force,  and we allow the lying bureaucrats to pretend things are getting better by  playing games with the numbers.

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t have the energy or interest in putting in  the time necessary to find out if the media is being honest. Many if not most  take in the headlines and opening paragraphs at best. The press knows that they  can hide the facts later in their reports.

Those who get their news and information elsewhere know the truth. Many  articles have been linked at my website over the years about what the Department  of Labor is doing with the unemployment rate (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here,  and here for examples — and that’s not even all of them). The  mainline news media’s lies and deceptions reach most Americans. The conservative  press reaches its relatively small audience with the truth. And the cycle  repeats.

All the while Republican and conservatives expect change to miraculously take  place despite the fact that they continue to do an absolutely lousy job of  reaching the uninformed and misinformed with the facts. Of course this is only  one issue — Republicans and conservatives are losing the information war when it comes to almost everything.

People will usually believe what they want to believe. This should be obvious  though — if voters want to know the truth but they never hear it, how can they  support it?

Being deceitful is their middle name

All by design.....

Anyone besides me remember the economy under Jimmy Carter. Look at the dates on these.

  "The so-called participation rate, which  indicates the share of working-age people in the labor force, decreased to 62.8  percent, matching the lowest level since 1978, from 63.2 percent a month  earlier."

Anytime liberals get into power they screw up anything they touch !

Oh well, to be redundant "LIARS FIGURE and FIGURES LIE".

If the GOP wins the Senate and maintains the House, or we get a Republican President, then the Liberals in Congress & the Media will demand that we put out the "REAL" unemployment numbers.

The GOP & FOX and Conservative talk radio needs to keep hammering the true unemployment numbers and the number that quit seeking employment.

92 million people are out of work, and the jobs people are getting are those jobs with less than 30 hours per because of all the failed socialist programs that Obama wants...he thinks that raising the minimum wage will do something..other than getting the democrats more will not do anything for the economy..and put the burden on the backs of the small businesses...and now china has surpassed us as the leading economic power (bet you will not see that on cnn or msnbc)...and the real unemployment rate is actuall 15 to 25 in just 5 short years, Obama has destroyed a 140 plus years of the united states being the worlds economic leader in the world.

Perhaps, Conservatives and Republicans are loosing the war on information because of the bias in news that does filter any conservatives thoughts. It's well documented that CBS, NBC and other networks like Univision, filter out anything that is conservatives. However they press on anything that is liberal and progressive. Today's news are not news is combination of editorial  frame work put as news. if democrats have something to win, it is in the publication of bias news.

Liars, period....either by ignorance or omission.




Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.


Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
