As Americans, we have never seen an Administration so committed to deceiving the American public. Whether we are talking Benghazi or the economy, Obama is flat out lying. The news of the day that Employment has magically surged and the number of unemployed has shrunk is a complete, utter fabrication.

Here are the numbers:

Our civilian population that could work has increased by 3,700,000 in since September 2011.

The number of people no longer in the labor force has increased by 2,643,000.

Here is the complete bullshit number. The BLS is claiming that 873,000 more people are working in September as compared to August 2012. That is a total fucking lie.

Even the BLS admits that only 114,000 jobs were created last month:

The unemployment rate decreased to 7.8 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 114,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in health care and in transportation and warehousing but changed little in most other major industries.

I suppose Obama and his desperate team are counting on the math ignorance of Americans.

The real number is higher. Per Bloomberg:

The so-called underemployment rate — which includes part- time workers who’d prefer a full-time position and people who want work but have given up looking — held at 14.7 percent.

This should not be a partisan matter. But as was the case in Benghazi, where Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper lied to Congress and the American people about what the intelligence community was reporting, so too are the American people being fed a pile of complete horseshit on the true state of the economy. Job growth has not surged–this is a complete fabrication and does not accurately reflect what is going on in the economy.
