According to the stock market and the President, the economy is recovering and doing well.
The president has even bragged about all the jobs his administration has created. Don’t believe it.
This lie is built upon data manipulation. According to the President and the US government unemployment is at 4.7%, a level so low the country always experiences wage growth from labor competition.
BUT that isn’t happening, what little wage growth that has occurred was mandated by labor rule changes and minimum wage mandated increases.
You can see this lie, the emperor naked, by looking at the only unemployment number they CANNOT manipulate, the non participation rate which has hit an all time high at 38%.
How can non participation be at an all time high and unemployment be at an all time low?
Impossible. This administration is doing what I call the Benghazi shuffle, a combination of outright falsehoods that don’t get challenged because we have a compliant media that is so infatuated with this President and his liberal philosophy they just repeat his lies without challenge.
Josh Earnest will get 10 minutes of media time in this weekends news cycle boasting about these numbers with only 30 seconds of critical response questioning from these fake journalists. This labor paradox is covering over a giant hole in this country’s “recovery” and our newspapers and media are too busy kissing Obama’s ring to notice he’s naked.
