One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

THE BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS' LATEST JOBS AND UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT WAS "WORTHLESS AND MISLEADING." "OTHER THAN SOME MINOR INSIGNIFICANT DETAIL, 'YOUR' GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY LYING TO YOU ABOUT EVERYTHING OF IMPORTANCE" -- PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
Friday’s Jobs Report: More Lies From “our” Big Brother
In his report on the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ latest jobs and unemployment report, statistician John Williams (shadowstats.com)
writes: “The July employment and unemployment numbers published today,
August 3rd, were worthless and likely misleading. . . . Suspecting at
one time that the jobs numbers were being rigged against him by his own
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), President Richard M. Nixon proposed a
new approach to reporting the numbers. Although the proposed changes
never were implemented, several decades later the BLS adopted reporting
methods that were somewhat parallel to the late president’s thinking.”
I will spare the readers an explanation of Williams’ account of the
manipulation that is occurring as it is too arcane for the general
Instead, Let’s just apply common sense. According to the BLS, there
were 163,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs created in July. This figure is
about 13,000 more jobs than is needed to keep pace with population
growth. Therefore, the unemployment rate should have declined
fractionally. Instead, the unemployment rate (U3) rose from 8.2% to
In case you missed the point, new jobs, a net figure, rose and so did the unemployment rate!
Moreover, the alternative, but much less reported, jobs report from
the Household Survey found that the economy lost 195,000 jobs in July.
The government that lies to you about weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq, about Iraq’s al Qaeda connections, about the Taliban in
Afghanistan, about Osama bin Laden, about Libya and Gadhafi, about
Iranian nukes, about Syria, about Pakistan, about Yemen and Somalia,
about Bradley Manning, about Julian Assange and Wikileaks, indeed about
everything under the sun, also lies to you about jobs, unemployment,
economic recovery, GDP growth, 9/11, the “terrorist threat,” everything.
Try to find anything that the government has said over the past 6
presidential terms that is not a lie.
Other than some minor insignificant detail, “your” government has been consistently lying to you about everything of importance.
“Your” government lies to you, because “your” government has an
agenda that it most certainly will not tell you about, because if you
knew what it is, you would revolt. Putting down the revolt would divert
the government from its agenda. It would also alert the rest of the
world to the fact that the US government has an undeclared agenda of
world domination, despite the costs to the American people and every
other people. World War III looms.
Nuclear annihilation is the necessary outcome of the
neoconservatives’ drive for US world hegemony. Syria can fall, and Iran
can fall, but Russia and China are unlikely to accept their reduction to
puppet state status. As both are nuclear armed and as the crazed
criminals in charge of the US government are wallowing in hubris,
nuclear war seems inevitable.
The world’s most mortal enemy is Washington. If Washington prevails,
the world will be dead or in slavery to Washington, including all
american subjects, whether Democrats or Republicans.
Don’t let it ever be said that your enemy, whatever your country, has not been identified.
