God may be giving Obama a pass on Netanyahu and rewarding him with jobs creation

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The U.S. added 257,000 jobs in January and hiring in the final two months of 2014 was even stronger than previously reported, reflecting by far the strongest pace of job creation since a recovery began more than five years ago. Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected a gain of 230,000 nonfarm jobs. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, edged up to 5.7% from 5.6% as more people entered the labor force in search of work, the Labor Department said Friday. In a good sign, average hourly wages jumped 0.5% in January to $24.75 after declining in December. That put the 12-month increase at 2.2%, close to a post-recession high. The amount of time people worked each week also remained at a postrecession high of 34.6 hours. The economy has now added at least 200,000 jobs for 12 straight months, a feat last accomplished in 1994-1995, and hiring shows little sign of slowing down despite weaker economic growth around the world. In November, the number of jobs created even topped 400,000 for the first time since the end of the recession excluding the temporary hiring of Census workers in 2010. November's job gain was revised up to 423,000 from 353,000. The government also raised the number of jobs created in December to 329,000 from 252,000. The the labor-force participation rate rose several ticks to 62.9%.

  4. The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

    Here's something that many Americans -- including some of the smartest and most educated among us -- don't know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

    Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

    So in fact?

    Your great workforce number?

    PURE BULLSHIT

      gross growth has shrunk from 40% over last year month to month (for oct) to about 25% growth rate..

      I am betting profits are slimmer (per 1k sales) due to increases in product & shipping... (make it up in volume)

      I have taken a very aggressive line to tighten our belts over increasing retail costs. I am still quite bullish about what real companies that never used the government tit to grow can accomplish...

      Since i am not a minority business in any way, shape or form I have NOT gone after ANY governmental business KNOWING that once my bids were in place someone whose check boxes LOOKED better could come in and take my contracts...

      Now with the shit is hitting the fan, those of us that actually earn a living by providing a value added service can and will do just fine..

      Funny things about the unavailable credit?

      dont really have it, never did...

      I use earnings to pay payroll....

      I take profit to pay for products

      I take profits to pay for labor

      If we have a bad week? I tell the wife DONT SPEND on anything... Usually we have enough stocked in the freezer to make it thru the 3 - 4 day crisis til the deposits roll in...

      Yep...

  6. The Unemployment Rate is Not a Lie.

    from Vox

    Gallup CEO Jim Clifton has discovered a shocking secret about unemployment: its definition.

    Those Chicago guys didn't even bother to hide this one in plain sight. It's just sitting there in plain sight, right on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' homepage: only people who don't have a job but are actively looking for one count as unemployed. That means someone who wants work but has given up looking for it because things seem so hopeless isn't "unemployed." Neither is someone who works part-time but can't find the full-time job that they want. Or someone who does whatever odd jobs they can find. Add it all up, and our 5.6 percent unemployment rate is a "Big Lie," according to Clifton.

    Okay, that's more than a little melodramatic, but he does have a point. You know who else thinks he does? Fed Chair Janet Yellen. She's emphasized that the unemployment rate doesn't show us all the slack in the labor market right now. The Great Recession put us in such a big hole that you have also have to look at the long-term unemployed, involuntary part-time workers, the participation rate, how many people feel confident enough to quit their jobs, and how much people are getting paid to get a better idea of how the economy is really doing. She's actually talked about this a lot, and so has everyone else who writes about these things ... including, you know, me.

    1. That brings us to one last question. If the unemployment rate is so flawed how come we pay so much attention to it? Well, because it's the worst stat about labor market slack except for all the others. The problem is figuring out which people who don't have jobs are really jobless. Take discouraged workers. The unemployment understates how bad things are by ignoring them, but we wouldn't want to count everyone who's not working and not looking for a job as unemployed, would we? If we did, then we'd be saying that college students and stay-at-home parents and even retirees are just as unemployed as someone who's sending out resumés everyday. But even that's not clear cut since some people go to school because they can't find a job, and some people stay at home since child care would cost more than they'd make, and some people are forced into retirement. That's why we look, for example, at the so-called prime-age participation rate—the percent of people between 25 and 54 years old who have or are looking for a job—to figure out far away we are from a real recovery. And by that measure, we still have a ways to go.

      But even that's imperfect because it doesn't tell us why people aren't looking for work. It could be that the crisis convinced more people to go to college, regardless of whether they could find a job now. That'd be good. Or it could be that wages have been flat for so long and childcare's gotten so expensive that it's not worth it for people to work now or anytime soon. That'd be bad. Or it could be both. But if either is true, it'd mean that the unemployment rate is more accurate than you might think. In other words, since we can't read people's minds, the best way we can tell what they want is to look at what they've done. That's not entirely right, but it's the least wrong.

      So the unemployment rate's not a big lie. But calling it one is.

    2. Here's the thing: The government publishes Six (6) Unemployment Rates.

      If you don't like the U3 Rate (the one that is used most frequently,) use a different one.

      Use the U6 Rate; that's the one that includes discouraged, and part-time workers as being "unemployed."

      That asshole at Gallup knows all this, of course. I guess he was just trolling for "hits."

    1. Exctly, Ash.
      Mr Oren did not say that Israel preferred al-Qeada over the Kurds, Christians and Alwites.

      He said that Israeli preferred al-Qeada over those aligned with Iran, which the Kurds, Alwites and Christians in Syria are.
      That the Kurds, Alwites and Christians are aligned with Iran is surmised from reading the remarks of Turkey's leadership, Kurdish leadership and stories about the Christians, in Syria.

      Delete
    2. Now if you wish, Ash, we can develop the case that there are majorities in each of those segments of Syrian society that support Mr Assad's regime. We can find and link to the stories that make that case.
      We can also develop the case that Iran supports the Syrian government, too.

      Anyone that wanted to argue that the Kurds and Christians are not supportive of the Assad government could do that, it would be a difficult case to make. Feel free to, if you wish, though that would take one of us out of the editorial 'we'.

    3. Now, if you wish to argue that Mr Oren was not speaking of Christians and Kurds when he said...

      “We always wanted Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”

      But our own "O"rdure , speaking from the Israeli view point has told us, paraphrasing now, that the Christians in Syria were nothing but NAZIs.

      Delete
    4. Even Mr Oren, we can surmise, thinks Nazis are 'bad guys'. If they are backed by Iran, which in Syria the Christians are, then we can further surmise that, according to Mr Oren, Israel would prefer al-Qeada to those they consider to be 'Nazi backed by Iran'

    The statement in Sanaa, read by an unidentified announcer, claimed that it marked "a new era that will take Yemen to safe shores."

    It comes after political parties failed to meet a Houthi-imposed deadline on Wednesday to agree on an acceptable way forward.

    Will ISIS fall apart from internal struggles?
    By Thomas Lifson

    Reports are emerging from ISIS-held territory of a reign of terror, with lethal infighting among groups making up the diverse and hastily-assembled “caliphate.” It is quite possible that internal bloodletting could cripple the organization more than any response from the civilized world. Writing in The Daily Beast, Jamie Dettmer reports:

    …quarrels over a range of issues—from divvying up of the spoils of war to competition over women and, yes, the handling of foreign hostages—point to a lot of trouble beneath the surface of this terror army.

    This is according to political activists in northern Syria, including members of the a group called “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently,” who follow developments in ISIS very closely and appear to be well sourced inside the city of Raqqa, which is the so-called Islamic State’s capital. The group reported on a failed Jordanian attempt to rescue Muadh al Kasasbeh, a downed pilot from the Jordan Air Force, and his subsequent execution, burned alive, weeks before the hideous video of his murder was made public by ISIS.

    So this group has a fair amount of credibility. They report:...........................

  16. Politinerds: Ambassador John Bolton
    posted at 10:01 am on February 6, 2015 by Jazz Shaw


    PolitinerdsHotAir

    This week on Politinerds, Doug and I talk with former UN Ambassador (and potential presidential candidate) John Bolton, fresh from a trip to New Hampshire where he was discussing a run for the White House. Bolton is a fascinating person to interview, and we start off by exploring his early years growing up in a blue collar neighborhood of Baltimore. We then move on to his college years, where he shares some very interesting (though not fond) memories of Bill and Hillary Clinton from when they attended Yale together. He also reflected on what it was like being in a class not only with the Clintons, but a future Supreme Court justice and others who would rise to prominence. He’s got quite a sense of humor.

    “Everybody at Yale Law School thinks that they can become president and should become president if only the peasants would agree.”

    - John Bolton

    After that we get into how he sees the current state of American foreign policy and what he would bring to the table were he put in charge. While he can’t come right out and say that he’s running due to campaign finance laws, we do get him to answer The Question… Why do you want to be president? Enjoy.

    (Please note that this replay includes the VLR daily news update ahead of the interview, so if you don’t care to hear it you can fast forward to the roughly 3:30 mark for our interview with Ambassador Bolton.)

    An Islamic State message published by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadist activity, said the American woman was killed when the building where she was being held in the Raqqa area collapsed in an airstrike.

    “The failed Jordanian aircraft killed an American female hostage,” said the message. “No mujahid was injured in the bombardment, and all praise is due to Allah.” Mujahid means fighter.

    2. The Big difference, of course, is in Employment.

      Today, there are 148,201,000 People Employed in the U.S.

      During the last month of Bush's final budget there were 138,864,000 Employed.

      A Gain of 9,337,000 With Jobs.

      The latest jobs report was very good.

      But of course the participation rate IS important since in the time span we are talking the US population grew by 15 million.

  21. BEIRUT (Reuters) - At least 30 Islamic State fighters were killed on Friday in U.S.-led coalition air strikes around the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

    Observatory head Rami Abdulrahman said the attacks targeted depots of military vehicles and tanks, training camps and a prison used by the group east and west of Raqqa, the largest Syrian city under Islamic State control.

    "At least 30 are confirmed killed. This is one of the biggest attacks. It dealt a major blow to the group," Abdulrahman told Reuters. It was not immediately possible to independently verify the account.

    Islamic State seized large areas in Syria and Iraq and declared a self-imposed Islamic caliphate last year but has come under strain after a series of defeats in Syria brought about in part by air strikes on its forces and infrastructure.

    It was forced to withdraw from the Kurdish town of Kobani after four months of fierce fighting with Kurdish militia aided by U.S. air support, and has lost ground to Syrian government and Kurdish forces elsewhere.

  24. I have a friend at the Casino, American Indian guy, who is always invariably nice to me.

    His name is Elias.

    Knows his Bible too.....

    >>Elias /ɨˈlaɪ.əs/ is the Latin transliteration of the Greek name Ἠλίας, which in turn is the Hellenized form of the Hebrew: אליהו, Eliyahu, meaning "Yahweh is my God".[1] Another form of Eliyahu in English is Elijah /ɨˈlaɪdʒə/.[2]

    The name belonged most notably to Elijah, the Hebrew prophet. The Quran refers to this prophet in Arabic as Ilias (إلياس). The King James Version of the Bible also uses "Elias" in the New Testament as the English translation of the Greek name for this prophet.<< wiki

    He explained all this to me one night.

  29. Pope Francis says it is OK to smack children if their ‘dignity is maintained’

    Vatican defends comments about ‘disciplining with justice’ after facing previous criticism from UN over attitude to corporal punishment
    Pope Francis

    Pope Francis told parents it is OK to spank their children to discipline them – as long as their dignity is maintained.

    Francis made the remarks this week during his weekly general audience, which was devoted to the role of fathers in the family.

    Francis outlined the traits of a good father: one who forgives but is able to “correct with firmness” while not discouraging the child.

    “One time, I heard a father in a meeting with married couples say ‘I sometimes have to smack my children a bit, but never in the face so as to not humiliate them’,” Francis said.

    “How beautiful.” he added. “He knows the sense of dignity! He has to punish them but does it justly and moves on.”

    The Rev Thomas Rosica, who collaborates with the Vatican press office, said the pope was obviously not speaking about committing violence or cruelty against a child but rather about “helping someone to grow and mature”................

    Got to love the use of 'smack' here which is surely a very rough translation of what the Pope actually said...

    The Pope also has been of the opinion the West ought to defend itself from the Islamics. Presumably he is of the opinion that a 'just war' is in the making.

    I would imagine that Baghdad is pushing to go into Mosul ASAP so that they are in the lead and are not seen as the weak sister when compared to the Kurds. I suspect the Kurds probably are thinking along the same lines.

  31. The Kurds have said that they will not attack Mosul sans a combined effort from Sunni elements of the Iraqi Army.

  32. The Kurds should mind to their own defenses.

    They should hold that referendum, declare independence and look to their own defenses.
