Outside of the federal government's Bureau of Labor statistics, the Gallup polling organization also tracks the nation's unemployment rate.

Another “Recovery Summer” down the drain...
Let me be first to guess what the perversion that is today's "media" will come up as the explanation for the higher unemployment rate: Robust hiring!
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Doesn’t surprise me. My hubby is being forced to retire. My sister just got laid off..my daughter can not find a job.
You just have to wonder WTF is wrong with the people in this county. I mean after five years of this half-breed, you’d think even the dumbest of our citizens would have figured it out!
The BLS will report UE at 7.2%, after compensating for “seasonal adjustments.”
jump? Do you really believe it was actually 7.7% to begin with?
What in the world does that have to do with anything?
I don’t know..but we are in a tail spin here..it is reality.
Bigotry affords comfort to the ignorant.
Free fall as the cause of the big White Hut meeting?
Now, all we have to do, America, is add this piece of bad news to all the other Ophonybama scandals, corruption and misdeeds and
IMPEACH! CONVICT! IMPRISON!
Ophonybama and his entire administration!
Can we please! Please! Just do that!
Hmmm...two days ago they put a full budget freeze at my work. No new hiring. No additional training. No overtime. No labor done except on vital projects. I guess they got a heads up first.
Agree. The fact that he’s a mulatto has nothing to do with it.
However, he is a lazy, lying, piece of shit.
and those are his good points
MSM: It’s those damned obstructionist Republicans again!!!
And those with above room temp IQ know that the real rate is much higher than those “figures” from the “Bureau of Lying Statistics”.
That was my first thought. This jump is a result of some change in the way the beans are counted and grouped, not the actual number of beans.
My entire corporate division is having to take a one week furlough. I guess I should be glad I am not unemployed.
Stick to his transgressions, that’s the conservative way.
It is liberals who consider the race first.
I’ve noticed that, too...yet the BLS rate will be massaged down to 7.2 at the end of this month.
But... that can't be... unemployment is only at 7.4%. The BLS said so!
(Seriously... very sorry to hear of the difficulties)
Yeah, they've figured it out, alright. All they have to do is suck from the system and nothing changes for them.
Actually, he’s just a puppet of the Big Money. Same as most of his predecessors.
There’s a reason why elections change nothing.
NEW YORK President Obamas half-brother in Kenya could cause the White House more headaches over new evidence linking him to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and establishing that controversial IRS supervisor Lois Lerner signed his tax-exempt approval letter.
Malik Obamas oversight of the Muslim Brotherhoods international investments is one reason for the Obama administrations support of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to an Egyptian report citing the vice president of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Egypt, Tehani al-Gebali

In a news report on Egyptian television of a Gebali speech, translated by researcher Walid Shoebat, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative, Gebali said she would like to inform the American people that their presidents brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the Muslim Brotherhood.
We will carry out the law, and the Americans will not stop us, she said. We need to open the files and begin court sessions.
The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism, she continued. We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with [the terrorists]. It is for this reason that the American administration fights us.
New! Impeachable Offenses lays out the blueprint for impeaching Barack Obama for crimes against the United States. Order it now at WNDs Superstore!
Shoebat said Gebali explained the news is important to Americans who are concerned about their presidents actions, calling it is a gift to the American people, implying there were more revelations to come.
In an interview on Egyptian television, Gebali said the cost to Egypt has been great, and she vowed her country will not allow any conspiracy against its people or the Egyptian state. She insisted that pushing Egypt to bankruptcy is unacceptable, because it would plunge her country into a dire state similar to Iraq and Libya.
Shoebat said that if the reports are correct, Turkey appears to play a central role in the alleged conspiracy. He emphasized that Egypt has asserted to the international community that it will not tolerate any attempt to push the country to bankruptcy.
Shoebats blog linked to three very credible sources that corroborate the report on Gebalis comments.
Shoebat reported in May that Malik Obama is the executive secretary of the Islamic Dawa Organization, or IDO, a group created by the government of Sudan, which is considered by the U.S. State Department to be a terrorist state.
In 2010, Malik Obama attended an IDO conference in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. One of the objectives of the IDO is to spread Wahhabist Islam across the African continent.
Sudan President Omar Al-Bashir supervised the conference. Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court on seven counts related to crimes against humanity.
Shoebat asserted the evidence places Malik Obama in bed with terrorists, working in a terrorist state as an official of an organization created by terrorists.
Maliks tax-exempt problems
WND reported in May that funds contributed in the U.S. to a 501(c)3 foundation run by Malik Obama have been diverted to support Maliks multiple wives in Kenya, an expert on Islamic extremism has charged.
Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS tax-exempt division currently under congressional investigation, signed the letter approving tax-exempt status for the Malik Obamas Barack H. Obama Foundation.
Lerner, currently on paid executive leave from her IRS supervisory position, took the Fifth Amendment before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on May 22 rather than answer questions on inappropriate criteria used by her IRS department to delay or otherwise deny tax-exempt status for tea party and patriot groups.
Shoebat has detailed his allegations in a 22-page investigative report titled New IRS Scandal: Islamic Extremism and Sex Slaves: Report Reveals Obamas Relatives Run Charities of Deceit, published on his website
After a thorough examination of available evidence, Shoebat explained to WND his allegations against the Obama family tax-exempt foundations:
When Malik Obama and Sarah Obama raised money in the United States as the respective heads of foundations claiming to be charities, not only did the Internal Revenue Service illegally grant one of them tax-deductible status retroactively, but these foundations have supported to varying degrees illegal operations that acquire funding for personal gain, philandering, polygamy and the promotion of Wahhabism, the brand of Islam practiced by Al-Qaeda.
For the past two years, since long before the current IRS scandals became public, WND has been reporting irregularities in two IRS-approved 501(c)3 organizations operated in the U.S. by Obamas half-brother and step-grandmother in Kenya.
WND reported in September 2011 the Barack H. Obama Foundation apparently received IRS approval one month after an application was submitted in May 2011. The IRS determination letter June 11, 2011, granted a highly irregular retroactive tax-exempt approval only after the group came under fire for operating as a 501(c)3 foundation since 2008 without ever having applied to the IRS.
In October 2012, WND reported a separate foundation, the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation, created on behalf of Obamas step-grandmother in Kenya, has transferred funds, 90 percent of which are raised from U.S. individuals and corporations, to send Kenyan students to the top three most radical Wahhabist madrassas in Saudi Arabia.
Since its founding in 2008, the Barack H. Obama Foundation, operating out of a commercial mail drop in Arlington, Va., has solicited tax-deductible contributions on the Internet, listing addresses and telephone numbers both in the U.S. and Kenya, without disclosing the group lacked an IRS determination letter.
In September 2011, the IRS confirmed to WND that the Barack H. Obama Foundation had received a determination letter in June 2011, awarding the group tax-exempt 501(c)3 status retro-actively to 2008
Malik Obama, best man at the wedding of Barack H. Obama, Oct. 3, 1992
On March 3, 2013, Andrew Malone, reporting for the London Daily Mail, documented that Maliks youngest wife in Kenya, Sheila Anyano, 35 years his junior, had spent the past two years living with three of Maliks other wives at the Barack H Obama Foundation rest and relaxation center, a restaurant complex that profits from visitors drawn by the familys connection to the American president.
According to the Daily Mail, members of his extended family in Kenya have accused Malik, a practitioner of Islam and a polygamist, of being a wife-beater and philanderer. Malik is accused of seducing Sheila, the newest of his estimated 12 wives when she was a 17-year-old schoolgirl a crime in Kenya, where the legal age of consent is 18.
Malone tracked down Sheilas mother, Mary, who explained to the reporter that Malik Obama had secret trysts with the girl after spotting her attending prayers at the mosque he has built in Kogelo, the familys ancestral home.
Sheila, now age 20, told Ambrose that marrying Malik, now age 55, was the worst decision of her life and confirmed that she and Malik kept their marriage a secret, because she was 17.
At first he was good, after he started speaking to me at the mosque, Sheila told the Daily Mail. But he has changed. Marrying him has been the biggest mistake of my life. He beats me, but mostly hes just nasty and quarrelsome.
Shoebot charged that Malik Obama is abusing non-profit funds.
There is no evidence to suggest that Malik is building any houses in Kogelo for widows and orphans as claimed, Shoebat said.
Neither is there evidence that the Mama Sarah Foundation has built any homes for widows, orphans and HIV/AIDS victims.
The only evidence where monies were spent involves the Barack H. Obama Recreation and Rest Center in Kenya, which housed Maliks 12 wives in a facility that includes a restaurant and a mosque with a madrassa, he said.
While building mosques is legally considered charity, evidence shows the entire funding came directly from entities and individuals from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain, Shoebat said. There is nothing of charitable nature to show for all the funds Malik raises from the United States. To date, there is no evidence for any accomplishments toward building homes for orphans, widows and AIDS victims in Kogelo or anywhere else in Kenya.
Limited financial reporting
An IRS Form 990-EZ required for tax-exempt organizations was filed on May 23, 2011, only days before the IRS determination letter was sent.
Barack H. Obama Foundation, Form 990-EZ, filed May 23, 2011, page 1
The Form 990-EZ appears to have been hand-written by Malik Obama himself, complete with an unorthodox page of calculations evidently included to back up the amounts entered into the form.
The Form 990 reported the foundation had received $24,250 total gross income for 2010, derived from contributions, gifts and grants.
We were not very successful this year because of limited contributions, Malik reported on the Form 990. The Foundation sponsored a Youth Tournement (sic) and embarked on construction of community bridges.
Malik surfaced during the 2008 presidential campaign, dressed in African garb and holding a photograph of Barack Obama in African garb.

Born in Kenya to Kezia
Born in Kenya, on March 15, 1958, Abongo Malik Roy Obama was the first child born to Barack Obama Sr.
The son of Kezia, Obama Sr.s first wife, Malik was only 18 months old when Barack Obama Sr. arrived in New York Aug. 8, 1959, on a BOAC flight in transit from Kenya to begin his undergraduate studies at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
Having abandoned Kezia in Kenya, Obama Sr. subsequently married Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack Obama Jr.s mother, while in Honolulu, according to the account Obama relates in his autobiography Dreams from My Father.
Interesting... 30,000 person sample size is absolutely massive. This is not showing up in the initial claims data at all. Maybe a huge number of people started to look for work again. We will see come September 6th.
You do know the reasoning behind the seasonal adjustments for economic data right?
I believe he may have meant “half wit”... yeah, that’s the ticket.
green shoots. hope and change.
Thank you..Damn it is tough...and we are all college educated. It doesn’t matter anymore. All my life, hard work, work ethic..gone
0bamacarnage at work. Let’s watch the media bury this story, too. This is HUGE. This shows the complete lunacy of the Dems regulations and seizure of American’s health care by a corrupt insurgent government hellbent on destruction.
Count me in that statistic. I was laid off in May but given until September 6 to find a job. Not so much as a nibble yet. Prayers greatly appreciated.
The self-employed who go out of business because of the bad economy do not count in the governments unemployment stats and that is a lot of people.
The completed socialist take over of our education system, combined with *FREE STUFF* makes the tonic that keeps them all "happy".
Sorry for your employment woes...prayers being said for you, freepertoo.
And we all find ourselves supporting lazy-assed slimeballs like that POS surfer boy in CA. It aggravates the hell out of me.
The real unemployment rate is around 15%. If you were to include all the freeloaders now claiming disability, the number would likely be around 20%. These are sad times. Many people have to work multiple low-paying, part-time jobs just to get by.
Now it’s has touched my family - it’s serious
Recession is when your neighbor loses his job
Depression is when you lose you job
Many members of my extended family have been without work for extended periods of time. Others retired early. I started a part-time business six years ago, which will keep us afloat. I got laid off about a year ago. Carter's term seems like heaven in comparison.
“The completed socialist take over of our education system, combined with *FREE STUFF* makes the tonic that keeps them all “happy”.”
In other words, most of our “citizens” are worthless bums who have been bought off by the siren song of the “free lunch,” or they are worthless union thugs who don’t give two hoots in hell about anyone but themselves. Bankrupting their country is o.k. just so long as they can live off of the rest of us. May they “hurry” to their graves for what they have done!
Works for me! Thanks for the list!
Hey, but the dollar’s propped up for investors with government incomes. We don’t need no steenkeeng revenues from production.
