Surprise! Jobless Claims Up 78,000 Week After Election; PA, OH Worst Hit
Big Government ^ | Nov. 15, 2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 11/15/2012 9:57:03 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

The Department of Labor has announced that new jobless claims rose by a staggering 78,000 in the first week after the election, reaching a seasonally-adjusted total of 439,000. Over the past year, and in the weeks leading up to the election, jobless claims were said to be declining, dipping as low as 339,000, with the media proclaiming that they had reached the "lowest level in more than four years." Now, suddenly, the news seems far less rosy.

From the Department of Labor press release this morning:

In the week ending November 10, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 439,000, an increase of 78,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 361,000. The 4-week moving average was 383,750, an increase of 11,750 from the previous week's revised average of 372,000.

RE: PA, OH Worst Hit

Then What’s this nonsense about them explaining the huge jobless increase to Hurricane Sandy?

Only a small part of PA was affected ( and not that badly ) while Ohio was hardly affected at all.

The 110% of the welfare/slut/union coalition who voted for BO couldn’t care less. None of these voting blocs work for a living anyway.

The real stats now come out after the election. Many of us called it here that the government was faking all these economic stats for the election. Now that the evil communist Obama is elected now the real stats come out. This is more fraud. The democrats also perpetrated massive voter fraud to steal the election for Obama. The democrat party is a criminal organization. How much more will we take? We are now slaves in a communist dictatorship. Will we put up with being slaves?

Notice that this tyrannical government kept ALL of the fake economic stats precisely where they needed so that the media could claim the economy was improving.

Surprise!

Not to anyone paying attention - we all know that Liar-In-Chief was cooking the books for his reelection so that he would not have to break the maximum "No President has ever been reelected with unemployment over 8%"

America now has the Liar-In-Chief they wanted and elected. Next up - RAT push to repeal the 22nd Amendment.

“Ohio was hardly affected at all.”

Was kinda like a thunderstorm here in the Cleveland/Akron area. But then it drizzled for a week. Lots of people did lose power though.

All I can say is this: Union liars. Unions for various industries that Obama helped bailout lied to try and go along with the media propaganda that Romney was wrong and the auto industry was doing fine. They did it as a demonstration in Toledo, Ohio, arguing that GM would rake in a massive job increase of about 100,000 starting in 2013, take that claim as you will. However, with the election over, no one is afraid to admit it anymore, because Obama won.

I’d like to say that PA and OH deserve it but I’m convinced that they would’ve been red if it weren’t for voter fraud. Also most BO voters don’t care about unem since they already are.

As an aside: the prior week's unemployment claim number was adjusted upward (again), but this time by 5,000. So in real terms, the increase from last week's original claims number (356,000) and this week's 439,000 result (until it too is revised upward next week - bank on it) is 83,000 new filings, a record increase as far as I can see. Geez Louise, what a co-ink-y-dink!

Just wait until the unemployment rate for November is announced on December 3rd.

Obama media already going with the narrative that the skyrocket in Unemployment claims is because of Sandy..it has NOTHING to do with Sandy, it has EVERYTHING to do with Obama being re-elected and what an epic disaster he is for our country, of course the pravda media will still blame Sandy even though Ohio wasn’t even affected by Sandy at all

No president has got reelected with less votes than in his first term until zero.

Any one who didn't vote for Romney is a traitor to freedom and America.

All things that happen in the next four years can be blamed on those voters.

Well, of course unemployment in Ohio has gone up drastically. There were upwards of a hundred thousand or more Obama Democrats who were paid to vote multiple times.

Not that the election is over, they are once again, unemployed...perfectly understandable.

Well stated. And I think we are in for some twists and turns from Boehner and the House leadership. So let's all take a deep breath and not start a civil war within 5 minutes. There may be a method to some upcoming madness.

Hey, history tells you time and time again that your party's voters stay at home when you give them a rino to vote for so....LET"S BLAME THE VOTERS FOR NOT GIVING THEM WHAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR!

I am so tire of the never ending lack of logic of the stupid party.

To: factmart; All

What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about Patraeus' sex life.


Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".

Col West has opened the door.

We must fight election fraud.

It falls on ‘We the People’.

Silence is consent

There’s overwhelming evidence of fraud.- Here

Excerpt from Mitt Romney's reference:

These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states.
