    UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE WEEKLY CLAIMS REPORT

    SEASONALLY ADJUSTED DATA

    In the week ending Dec. 19, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 452,000, a decrease of 28,000 from the previous week's unrevised figure of 480,000.

    UNADJUSTED DATA

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 561,902 in the week ending Dec. 19, an increase of 6,492 from the previous week.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    And the lies from the horribly corrupt Obama Administration continue without end. Lie after lie after lie after lie after lie after lie. When will we impeach this CLOWN???? Obama is in bed with the Big Bankers who want to fleece the investing public with all of this talk of RECOVERY, RECOVERY, RECOVERY.

    THERE IS NO RECOVERY. The reality is that more and more people will be suckered into the stock market and then the Big Banks will take short positions on the stock market and bring it down again. The investors lose and the Big Bankers win. That is the new reality in the economic world.

    Think of it as a new tax on those who can afford to lose their savings to the Big Banks who in turn reward the political party that allowed them to steal all of that money from the investing public. It is all about getting rich, and the Big Banks know how to make the most money off of the fools.

    Consider, Ford has 3.34 Billion stock shares out. The company is technically bankrupt. They owe more money than they can pay out, but keep on selling shares in Ford to finance their corruption until somebody pulls the carpet out from under them. The only way they can avoid bankruptcy is to sell more stock shares so they can buy the bondholders out and remove all Bond debt. If they did so, and then declared BK, nobody would get a penny, but the Banks, hedge funds and few astute individuals who shorted the 3.34 billion or more shares.

    FORD HAS BECOME A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN MADOFF! OBAMA IS SUPPORTIVE OF THIS MASSIVE DECEPTION. If he were opposed to it, he would have stopped it a long time ago. The Big Bankers are foisting this kind of massive corruption on the nation, and Obama is fine with that.

    Nuebarth, I'm not trying to stir the pot with you, but a lot of your posts seem to always say "people are reading false info", or something to that effect. Where do you get your info (links please), and how do you know it's the truth? How do you know your not reading the false info and disregarding the truth? I've done reports and made charts that look EXACTLY like the ones you read. I could change the numbers, post it to the web, and sure enough, some fool would read it and preach it to everyone. Again, not trying to start crap with you, but anytime we read charts, facts, and reports, they could be fake. ALL OF THEM.

    When posting data one is required to post either a link or a citation for the source of that data. So where is the source?

    Gunny, I have posted it hundreds of times. It is the Department of Labor. The DOL puts the actual data up at their site but releases totally false and horribly corrupt "Adjusted Numbers" to support the Obama administration's lies about the economy.

    Here once again is a link:

    ETA Press Release: Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Report

    Look at all of the weekly numbers and you will see the degree of massive deception that we have experienced in the News Releases for the past four months as Obama has been saying that we are experiencing a rebound in the economy. IT IS ALL LIES! HE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, AND WE NEED TO PUT IN A LEADER WHO CREATES JOBS, NOT LIES.

    Regardless of anything else, either number is horrible. If they started with the seasonally adjusted number and are sticking with it, then it is what it is.

    I don't know how they adjust it, but retail workers unemployed in July vs. the same group in December would sem to have different numbers. Same with construction workers in the North in the two months showing.

    It seems like seasonally adjusted numbers would be more meaningful if the adjustments are logical.

    The problem is that there is no logic to the adjustments. Some weeks they round up and the next wees they round down and then back up again and then down again and then up again and then down again. It is all corrupt as hell. The fact remains that there is no logical reason to adjust the numbers. All they need to do is report them as is.

    We do not adjust the number of people killed in drunken traffic accidents. Could you imagine the Obama administration saying that too many drunks were killed in Accidents in December so we will report them as dead in February to even things out over time. Totally ludicrous like the Obama numbers that we see every week.

    All we need is the raw data. If half a million people filed unemployment insurance claims last week, report that as is and don't fuck with it. It is a hard number of actual people who filed those claims. They are out of work after having worked a job for six or twelve months, depending upon the state laws in place and believe they are eligible for UI. Experience has shown that 98 percent of the claims are totally valid. About two percent or less are in error because people miscalculated how long they were working before being laid off. That is not a great degree of error and has been fairly consistent over the years.
