America on Verge of Economic Collapse Because of Obama's Cooked Reports
News Blaze ^ | 2/16/12 | Chuck Ness

Posted on 02/16/2012 6:28:25 PM PST by OneVike

The Obama administration has released an economic report that claims everything is coming up roses, and it is making the rounds of the MSM's news outlets. Truth is, when you look into the numbers, it's rather easy to come to the conclusion that the economic reports are as screwy as the administration's employment numbers. In order to convince Americans that his economic measures are working, Obama is claiming there has been an increase in retail sales from December to January by a seasonally adjusted .4%. The administration goes on to explain that while the economy is moving in a positive direction, it is still slow. They also point out that the recently reported gains reduced unemployment to 8.3%, proving that Socialist economic policies are working. However, Obama's unemployment numbers have since been proven to be lies. Have I stated that we are in an election year and that Obama needs to get re-elected in order to continue transforming the greatest country in the history of mankind into a Soviet style basket case? To assist in the destruction, the MSM has been knowingly repeating this administration's lies.

Instead of reporting how America's real unemployment is actually up between 19 and 25%, they report that Obama has been able to get unemployment down to 8.3%. Instead of reporting that the government is spending more money than it is taking in, and that retail sales have dropped by almost $100 billion from December to January, we are told by the administration's propaganda machine that retail sales have increased by .4%. In an election year, the MSM will do everything in their power to convince Americans that Obama is even greater than Ronald Reagan.

The Obama administration will be feeding cooked reports to their sycophant talking heads in the media, with the understanding that Americans are to stupid to ever question them.

After all, who really cares that the unemployment is at historic levels or that retail sales have dropped a record amount in one Month, when all the MSM wants to talk about is whether or not the sluts and studs living in Sodom and Gomorrah will have free birth control provided by evil Christian institutions.

If Obama is defeated and Republicans win control of both houses of Congress, maybe there’s still time to fix this. If Obama is reelected, the outlook is dire.

Article Ping.

I had another article approved for publishing at News Blaze.

Connecting the dots on all the reports from the Obama administration shows a picture of immanent economic disaster that could hit us like a sledge hammer come summer time.

Clinton cooked the books too, which Bush’s “tax breaks for the rich”, which was actually “tax breaks for everyone” was designed to remedy. And it did in fact work. The economy improved almost immediately as a result. The problem is that liberals see things through the filter of their own preferred perceptions. They’re blind to anything else, such as what actually works.

Obama is obviously hoping to milk this thing until election day. But he may not have the most competent economists, even if they are die hard Alinskians.

We might be heading into the toilet as a country but at least we'll all have smiles on our faces when they flush thanks to the "media" feeding us all of their "good news" BS that the White Hut keeps sending them. All this good news is doing wonders for their boy's poll numbers so we all should be happy.

Be prepared for 8.1% unemployment figures for Feb. 8% or less in funny numbers by election time. First law of statistics is figures lie and liars figure.

Which is why I have stopped calling them "the media," mainstream or not. They've collectively jumped the shark for Obama and his regime. Which is why I now call them collectively the "ministry of propaganda." I figure it's now the most accurate description of them.

Yes, just like the citizens of the roman empire cheered their favorite gladiator on, until he was killed by another great gladiator. But hell, at least they never had time to think about their misery.

85% of those living in the roman empire were slaves, and we are headed there ourselves. The left just needs to keep us amused with basketball, football, hockey, the Olympic games, movies, television, music, pc games, etc. etc,. etc, so that Americans will never have time to consider how miserable they really are.

Obama has stated that his goal is "fairness," not increased tax revenue.

Apparently America would rather punish the rich than be solvent. I truly believe we're almost there if we aren't already.

AND keep your ears open to the number being recited: FOUR.

Lowest level in FOUR years
Highest level in FOUR years

etc.

Heard today the number FOUR being spouted repeatedly; claims for unemployment LOWEST level in FOUR years; construction HIGHEST in FOUR years etc etc. which of course places us back during the Bush Administration.

If we do get a handle on all this bullshit, we need to rip out the talking heads of propaganda in this country. Whether it be Corporations, individual owners or simple Anchors, they should be tried for treason. They have been derelict in their duties of reporting the TRUTH.

You said...
“Which is why I have stopped calling them “the media,” mainstream or not. They’ve collectively jumped the shark for Obama and his regime. Which is why I now call them collectively the “ministry of propaganda.” I figure it’s now the most accurate description of them.”

It’s worse than that.
A buddy of mine and I were walking our dogs while waiting for my son to finish his Confirmation class. The subject of Obama came up and he stated that the reason the press was covering for him was because he was a liberal and a Democrat.

After some thought, those two reasons are a small part of the reason the press is covering for him. But it still doesn’t fully explain the cover ups and the press willingness to repeat the Administration’s cooked data as unquestionable. The press never covered for Carter despite their didain of Reagan.

The overriding reason why the press covers for Obama is race. They don’t want to see the first black president fail and they will do anything in their power to see that doesn’t happen.

It will be their undoing

“Fairness”. There are so many political contexts you can place that meaningless-in-itself phrase in. Sort of like “hope”, and “change”. Does anyone know what is real agenda is, specifically? The devil is in the details.

It is too late to pull out of this.

This is a global deleveraging; a long-wave contraction that is happening all across the developed world. The hardest part is yet to come.

The greatest lie being perpetrated on the American public right now is that we were in a Recession. We were not in a recession. We are already year 4 into a decade long depressionary period. Americans have lost $7 Trillion in wealth just on the value of their homes alone. That doesn't include all the wealth that evaporated based on derivatives built on the housing market.

Obama is telling the truth that it's the worst economy since the Great Depression. It's probably the only time he has told the truth.

That being said, his Administration (and yes, Bush before him) took the absolute wrong path by continuing to recapitalize failed institutions instead of allowing them to collapse.

Like watching your house burn to the ground in slow motion, honestly. Better to speed up the film and rebuild, then to prolong the agony.

If anyone is waiting for a magical recovery once a Republican gets in, good luck. Once the EU falls apart, contagion will spread. It's only a matter of time before the truth of our economic decline becomes evident to all, no matter how many rounds of QE they toss at the American people.

Sadly you are right, the script was written in the early 1900’s when Americans failed to throw the bums out for unconstitutionally acting as if the 16th amendment was ratified when it never was.

Several local government employees (down here in the states—major socialist regulator types on the Rockies) have told me that they’re prepared to move to Canada, when our collapse occurs. Funny, how the left-leaning political class folks (especially government employees) are preparing for a violent end of the world, while we poor private sector rubes only live cheaper and try to get by.

I am sure it is. Give me awhile to study it and I bet you i will figure out just how they are. Everything connects together.

That is the problem with messing with statistical numbers. If you do one, you must do hundreds or eventually the truth will come out. Just ask you tax preparer. Cheat all you want, but if the numbers at the bottom to not jive, something is amiss.

Another way to put it is by balancing your check book. The left loves paperwork, and it is that paper trail that always does them in. It is how we nailed the Nazis, the communists, and eventually we always get the leftists like Obama.

So eventually those of us who love numbers will learn how they are cooking the books. Keep an eye out for any numbers or charts about the GDP and you will soon notice things that don’t add up, because you can never cook all the numbers, eventually evil people make mistakes, and it’;s those mistakes we will fund.
