(CNSNews.com) - Since January 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated as president, the United States has seen 54 straight months with the unemployment rate at 7.5 percent or higher, which is the longest stretch of unemployment at or above that rate since 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics started calculating the national unemployment rate.

The Republican House has done nothing to help matters, and the Republican minority in the Senate blocks everything.

So, what would you suggest the president do to bring down unemployment without the cooperation of Congress?

The House has passed many bills that would stimulate job and economic growth.

 

Reid never allowed a vote on a single one.

 

Repubs in the Senate have killed more liberal-left stupidity, as they should.

 

Here's the result of Obama's policies:

 

Worst recovery in 80 years.

 

Plummeting income.

 

11% real unemployment.

 

$1 trillion annual deficits.

 

2 million jobs behind pre-recession levels.

 

9 million jobs behind the average recovery.

Shocking Numbers That Show The Media Is Lying To You About Unemployment In America

 

Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse
February 2, 2013


Did you know that the percentage of the U.S. labor force that is employed has continually been falling since 2006 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics? Did you know that the increase in the number of Americans “not in the labor force” during Barack Obama’s first four years in the White House was more than three times greater than the increase in the number of Americans “not in the labor force” during the entire decade of the 1980s? The mainstream media would have us believe that 157,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy in January. Based on that news, the Dow broke the 14,000 barrier for the first time since October 2007. But if you actually look at the “non-seasonally adjusted” numbers, the number of Americans with a job actually decreased by 1,446,000 between December and January. But nowhere in the mainstream media did you hear that the U.S. economy lost more than 1.4 million jobs between December and January. It is amazing the things that you can find out when you actually take the time to look at the hard numbers instead of just listening to the media spin. Back in 2007, more than 146 million Americans were employed. Today, only 141.6 million Americans are employed even though our population has grown steadily since then. When the government and the media tell you that we are in a “recovery” and that unemployment is lower than it was a couple of years ago, I encourage you to dig deeper. The truth is that even the government’s own numbers tell us that the percentage of the U.S. labor force that is employed continues to fall and that the U.S. economy is heading into a recession. The Obama administration and the media have been lying to you about unemployment and about the true condition of our economy. After you see the numbers that I have compiled in this article, I think that you will agree with me.
First of all, let’s take a look at the percentage of the civilian labor force that has been employed over the past several years. These numbers come directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As you can see, this is a number that has been steadily falling since 2006…
2006: 63.1
2007: 63.0
2008: 62.2
2009: 59.3
2010: 58.5
2011: 58.4

In January, only 57.9 percent of the civilian labor force was employed.
Do the numbers above represent a positive trend or a negative trend?
Even a 2nd grader could answer that question.
So how in the world can the Obama administration and the mainstream media claim that the employment picture is getting better and that we are in a “recovery”?
But most Americans believe what they are told. It is almost as if we are in some kind of a “matrix” where reality is defined by the corporate-controlled propaganda that is relentlessly pumped into our brains.
The only way that the government has been able to show a declining unemployment rate is by dumping massive numbers of Americans into the “not in the labor force” category.
Just check out how the number of Americans “not in the labor force” has absolutely skyrocketed in recent years…

2006: 77,387,000
2007: 78,743,000
2008: 79,501,000
2009: 81,659,000
2010: 83,941,000
2011: 86,001,000

In January, there were supposedly 89,868,000 Americans that were at least 16 years of age that were not in the labor force.
That number has risen by more than 8 million since Barack Obama first entered the White House, and that is highly unusual, because the number of Americans “not in the labor force” only increased by2,518,000 during the entire decade of the 1980s.
You sure can get the numbers to look more “favorable” if you pretend that millions upon millions of American workers simply “don’t want a job” any longer. The truth is that if the labor force participation rate was at the same level it was at when Barack Obama was first elected, the official unemployment rate would be well above 10 percent.
But that wouldn’t do at all, would it? 7.9 percent sounds so much nicer.
And of course even if you do have a job that does not mean that you are doing okay.
If you can believe it, in America today 41 percent of all workers make $20,000 a year or less.
To me, that is a mind blowing statistic. It would be incredibly challenging for anyone to live on $20,000 a year, much less try to support a family.
If you live in Washington D.C. or New York City and you have a “good job” working for the establishment, you may not realize it, but there are tens of millions of American families that are really hurting out there. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income” at this point, and most of those people actually do have jobs.
For much more on the “working poor” in the United States, please see my previous article entitled “35 Statistics About The Working Poor In America That Will Blow Your Mind“.
If something is not done, the middle class will continue to disappearand poverty in America will continue to explode.
In a previous article, I noted that during Obama’s first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.
How bad do things have to get before people realize that we are living through a nightmare?
Sadly, most Americans still have faith in the system.
Most Americans are still convinced that our politicians will somehow find a way to turn things around.
Most Americans will gather around their television sets this weekend and watch the Super Bowl and laugh at all the funny commercials without even thinking about how America is literally falling apart all around them.
But there is one group of Americans that is acutely aware of how bad things have really gotten. Small businesses have traditionally been the primary engine of job growth in this country, but right now small business owners all over the nation are facing a tremendous crisis.
Millions of small businesses are on the verge of extinction, and yet our politicians just continue to pile on more taxes, more rules and more regulations.
A recent Gallup poll found that 61 percent of all small business owners in America are “worried about the potential cost of healthcare”, and that an astounding 30 percent of all small business owners in America are not hiring and fear that they will go out of business within the next 12 months.
In a previous article entitled “We Are Witnessing The Death Of Small Business In America“, I detailed how small businesses in America are being systematically wiped out. Small businesses are dying all around us, and the number of new small businesses continues to decline.
According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the decline in the number of startup jobs per one thousand Americans breaks down by presidential administration

Bush Sr.: 11.3
Clinton: 11.2
Bush Jr.: 10.8
Obama: 7.8

Is that a good trend or a bad trend?
All of this is so simple that even the family pet should be able to figure it out, and yet most Americans seem oblivious to all of this. They just keep gobbling up the mainstream media propaganda and they just continue to go out and wildly spend money.
It is almost as if we didn’t learn any lessons from 2008.
Even while household spending in Europe has moderated, household spending in the United States continues to soar. Just check out the chartin this article.
And guess what? The infamous “no money down mortgages” are back. If we wait long enough, perhaps “interest only mortgages” will make a comeback as well.
Unfortunately, I am afraid that time is running out. we have been living in the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world, and it is only a matter of time until it bursts.
2008 was just a “hiccup” compared to what is coming. Our politicians and the Federal Reserve were able to keep the house of cards from completely crashing down back then, but they are not going to be able to avert the economic horror show that is rapidly approaching.
I hope that you are getting prepared. Back in 2008, millions of Americans suddenly lost their jobs, and because many of them did not have any savings, many of them suddenly lost their homes. One of the most important things that you can do to prepare for the coming crisis is to build up an emergency fund. If things suddenly go bad, you don’t want to lose your house and everything that you have always worked for.
In addition, anything that you can do to become more self-sufficient and more independent of the system is a good thing, because the system is failing. The years ahead are going to be much more chaotic than what we are experiencing right now, and when the next crisis strikes you will be very thankful for the time and the energy that you put into preparing.
So what are all of you seeing in your own areas?
Are businesses shutting down?
Are people having a hard time finding good jobs?

ec what about the dems fighting to take away the mortgage interest deduction which will be devestating to real estate related jobs (clearly the largest sector of the US economy), allownig the garbage dodd/frank job killing bill to become law, closing down all the oil rigs in the Gulf after 1 little insignificant incident, not allwint the keystone pipeline to get built...

 

these are all due to sambo the shoe shine boy ec, not the Republicans. Under no recent Republican administration has the job market been so terrible (along with the rest of the economy). Let's not forget record oil prices that are due to sambo's insistant push for green energy that is such a failure all new solar and wind construction in the US has come to a halt.

 

look in the mirror all of you liberal scum bags. it's because of you and your people in dc causing this terrible economy.

The last months of the Bush disaster we were losing 800,000 jobs per month.

But that should have no effect on the next president, right?

 

America thought differently and voted accordingly....while you slime continue your propaganda and hate campaigns.

Ah but did you vote in another Bilderberg puppet in 2008 and 2012 with Obama ?

 

Then you are really no better.

 

Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party in 2008 and America would be in an ICELAND recovery right now.

 

 

It's kind or remarkable that Americans have seen through the goopers' sabotage of the economy and kept BO in office.

 

Sometimes American voters get it right.

Right one Bilderberg party.... no the other... no the other....

 

We are lucky we are not in the FEMA Camps now.

 

God's Grace is so awesome when Americans are soooooooooo stupid.

What happened in the first two years of Obama. Except for the stimulus package he ignored the job problem and spent his incoming capital on getting a stimulus package, Obama care and Dodd Frank. The stimulus did not stimulate and Obama later joked about the shovel ready jobs that did not exist. Both of the others crippling the small business that create a recovery. Then you libs rant that the GOP is the problem????? Get your head out of the sand and take a look at what is really happening. A gradual decrease in people working as the Obama presidency has gone on. Obama promised with the stimulus package that the unemployment rate would drop quickly. He makes a lot of promises but none of them come true.

So it is still all Bush's fault. When will the liberals look at the truth. What caused the housing bubble that brought down the economy? Acorn lobbying congress and getting CRA aand other banking laws modified under the first year of Clinton.

 

What was modified under CRA etc.?

All poor not just black poor.

No down payment required under CRA.

Low starting ARM.

No principle payments to start.

No credit checking on the poor.

HUD enforcing enough loans made by financial institutions, failure had bad consequences for the banks.

 

The banks responded by complying with the new laws when they went into effect. The banks sent as many as they could to Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. A graph of the housing bubble starts at that point. Regulators came to congress starting about 2005 and said that Fannie and Freddy were getting in trouble but the rabid Democrats ranted about how it was a lie with Barney Frank leading the way. Thus keeping any fixing of the looming problem from taking place. Then with Congress safely under Democrat rule all investigation into this was stopped. What happens with the poor when the ARM jumps up and the principal be applied??? Oops lots of forclosures!!!!!

 

GREAT GOING DEMOCRATS.

 

IGNORE A LOOMING PROBLEM AND CALL ANYONE YOU DISAGREE WITH A LIAR.

 

WITH THE RESULTS WHO WAS THE LIARS?????

yup.

 

Reagan did much better at "crossing the aisle". Wasn't this guy going to be a uniter, not a divider? Another bullshit promise in the trashcan along with transparency.

 

I'm not much on hero worship (worship of any kind really) but results are results.

prezimin Bammy ain't got no.

 

If Hillary and Joe B can fake a shitty dialect, I guess it's not demeaning.

Okay well then keep up the Bilderberg voting and keep being disappointed.

 

You are only throwing your nation away, but who cares if it is not on ESPN does it really matter ? right ?

 

People like you are Globalist enablers via your apathy.
