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.

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
