Wall Street Financial Expert Says The Actual Unemployment Rate Is 37.2%

Wall Street Adviser: Actual Unemployment Is 37.2%, ‘Misery Index’ Worst In 40 Years – Washington Examiner

Don’t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud.

.
………….

.
In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government.

Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to get a gun, said that the government isn’t being honest in how it calculates those out of the workforce or inflation, the two numbers used to get the Misery Index figure.

“The unemployment rate only describes people who are currently working or looking for work,” he said. That leaves out a ton more.

“Unemployment in its truest definition, meaning the portion of people who do not have any job, is 37.2 percent. This number obviously includes some people who are not or never plan to seek employment. But it does describe how many people are not able to, do not want to or cannot find a way to work. Policies that remove the barriers to employment, thus decreasing this number, are obviously beneficial,” he and colleague Megan Russell in their new investors note from their offices in Charlottesville, Va.

They added that “officially-reported unemployment numbers decrease when enough time passes to discourage the unemployed from looking for work. A decrease is not necessarily beneficial; an increase is clearly detrimental.”

Then there is the Misery Index, which is a calculation based in inflation and unemployment, both numbers the duo say are underscored by the government. He said that the Index doesn’t properly calculate how Uncle Sam is propping up the economy with bond purchases and other actions.

“These tricks, along with a host of other dubious accounting schemes, underreport inflation by about 3 percent,” they wrote, adding that the official inflation rate is just 1.24 percent.

“Today, the Misery Index would be 7.54 using official numbers,” they wrote. But if calculations tabulating the full national unemployment including discouraged workers, which is 10.2 percent, and the historical method of calculating inflation, which is now 4.5 percent, “the current misery index is closer to 14.7, worse even than during the Ford administration.”

President Asshat Tries To Scare Wall Street With Phony And Reckless Government Default Claims

Obama To Wall Street: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid – Washington Times

Not surprisingly, Wall Street looks a little wobbly at the opening bell this morning. This follows a previous negative session buoyed only partially by the Federal Reserve’s latest helicopter drop of printing press cash. The reason for the continued negativity should be fairly obvious by now. Stock futures are falling as the partial shutdown of the U.S. government drags on for a third day.

.

The government shutdown, originally estimated to last a day or two by most analysts and pundits, looks to be more lengthy now, perhaps considerably so, as the main aim of President Obama and the Senate Democrats seems to be the destruction of the Republican party, regardless of the economic and social consequences. While the shutdown itself is estimated to trim only about 0.2 percent from the gross domestic product each week, that could grow worse if the impasse begins to erode consumer and business confidence.

That was essentially the message from the National Retail Federation, which releases its sales forecast for the next two months on Thursday. Matthew Shay, the group’s president and CEO, said the calculations were made before the shutdown.

The President himself, as has been his custom over the past five years, won’t condescend to dirty his political hands over the budget mess that both he and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have kept at a boil by refusing to pass a real budget as Congress is required to. Budgets – and of course, budget ceilings – exist for them only as theoretical limits on the U.S. Treasury’s printing presses as well as convenient opportunities to unite with the lapdog media in attacking Republicans for the problems the Democrats themselves have caused and refuse to remedy.

Obama kept the pot at a boil yesterday, making deliberately provocative comments to the press based on lies, evasions, and half-truths, as is his custom.

In a CNBC interview, Obama said, “When you have a situation in which a faction is willing to default on U.S. obligations, then we are in trouble.” That “faction,” of course, is the Tea Party whose position has never included a “willingness” to default. They simply want to slow the increase in the debt ceiling by trading current increases for further tax cuts.

“I am exasperated with the idea that unless I say that 20 million people, ‘you can’t have health insurance, they will not reopen the government,’” Obama continued. “That is irresponsible.” This, of course, is another astonishingly transparent lie. No one on Capitol Hill in either party as ever said that Americans “can’t have health insurance.” The Republican opposition is simply stating the obvious, namely that the reckless, out-of-control Affordable Care Act, more un-popularly known as Obamacare, is not the way to go about it.

No matter. Obama continued to bore in on this phony scenario on CNBC and elsewhere Wednesday. “If we get into the habit where one party is allowed to extort, …then any president who comes after me we be unable to govern effectively,” Obama said. Seriously?

Commenting on the entire current impasse, he recklessly observed, “this time I think Wall Street should be concerned.” Surely even this president must be aware that responsible high government officials must never shout “Fire!” in a crowded theater. Or in a life-and-death market of stocks and bonds on Wall Street which, while wobbling lately, is still the financial capital of the world.

But none of this matters to the first American president who longs for the dictatorial powers possessed by his counterpart in the once and future Soviet Union. The prime obstacle to the happiness of this obstinate, childish president is the existence of an opposition party in this country. All other hopes and goals are in the end irrelevant.

The complete and utter destruction of the Republican Party is the only game in town as it has been for nearly five years, despite this president’s constant claim “I have tried to work with the Republicans.” That, in fact, is the biggest lie of all.

All of which leaves the stock market trading on political rumors and news, not on facts, figures, and values. Aside from nimble trading here and there, investing in the old-fashioned sense is just too dangerous right now.

Compounding the problem is the fact that even that old standby, that old “store of value” known as gold has been trading strangely for well over a year now, clearly the subject of some kind of massive, coordinated, and likely illegal maneuvering that regulatory institutions seem uninterested in resolving.

This leaves almost nowhere for concerned investors to go, save for the generous 0.01 percent interest they’re earning on their money market accounts, even as regulators quietly plan to destroy this hiding place as well by forcing the traditional $1 peg to float, thus terminating the usefulness of this vehicle as a holding mechanism.

No trading hints or recommendations this morning. It’s just too iffy, and it’s likely to remain that way as the Democrats and their President refuse to negotiate with the Republicans while blaming the Republicans for refusing to negotiate.

Politics hasn’t been this disgusting in Washington since the waning days of the Buchanan Administration. As the President dithered and failed to lead, Congress disintegrated, and half its members trotted off to found another country. Times are different now, but perhaps we’re watching a very different kind of instant replay.

Federal Reserve Announces New Round Of Soon-To-Be-Failed Economic “Stimulus”

Federal Reserve Announces New Round Of Economic Stimulus – NPR

The Federal Reserve announced it would spend $40 billion a month on bond purchases in an effort to stimulate the economy and drive the the unemployment rate down.

The Wall Street Journal says that unlike the first two rounds of Quantitative Easing, this time the Fed will focus solely on buying mortgage-backed securities.

In its statement, the Federal Reserve said the economy was growing but at a sluggish pace.

“The Committee is concerned that, without further policy accommodation, economic growth might not be strong enough to generate sustained improvement in labor market conditions,” the Federal Open Market Committee said. Remember the Fed has a dual mandate from Congress: keep inflation and the unemployment rate in check.

This action also represents an open-ended commitment on the part of the Federal Reserve, which said it was not concerned about inflation at this time.

“If the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved in a context of price stability,” the Fed said. That last line means that the Fed promises to tweak this program if inflation begins to be a problem.

Another big announcement, is that the Federal Reserve will keep its federal funds rate at near zero through mid-2015.

‘Occupy’ Lunacy Forces Milk Street Cafe Owner To Fire 21 Employees – WINS

The Occupy Wall Street movement, which says its goals include improving the economic lot for 99 percent of Americans, may have some explaining to do to some cafe workers now out of a job.

Marc Epstein, owner of the Milk Street Cafe at 40 Wall Street, just let 21 employees go.

The reason? The barricades police have set up throughout Wall Street as a consequence of the ongoing demonstration.

In June, he opened the New York branch of the Boston shop, which has a 30 year history. Epstein says he leased the space on Wall Street because it was next to a pedestrian plaza – and his was the only restaurant along that plaza.

“The opening was perfect,” Epstein told CBSNewYork.com. “The food was delicious, the customers were happy, and the line was out the door.”

Customers kept coming back, Epstein said.

“Everything was going in the right direction. Sales continued to grow. We started to build our catering business. Costs were going down. I felt that by October or November we would break even.”

Then the Occupy Wall Street movement launched.

“I came one Monday morning and I found the exit by the 2 or 3 subway station closed. I saw all these barriers – barricades – all up and down my street,” Epstein said. “At first I thought nothing of it, but after a week… it’s been six or seven weeks now.”

Six or seven weeks of marches and clashes between police and protesters. So the barricades have remained in place.

“The end result of it is that it completely destroyed the pedestrian traffic on Wall Street. Completely destroyed it,” Epstein said. “It is a desolate, police-controlled area.”

The cafe has a capacity of 150 seats. At the height of lunch hour Tuesday, Epstein estimated the shop was half full. With those sorts of numbers, he’s had to let people go.

“We eliminated 21 positions in the company,” Epstein said. “First time in 30 years I’ve laid anybody off.”

They’ve also cut back their hours at the New York location, closing now at 3 p.m. instead of 9 p.m.

However, Epstein doesn’t lay all the blame at the feet of Occupy Wall Street.

“I think this is an issue of both Occupy Wall Street and the city officials. There’s protest and how you react to protest,” Epstein said. “If the barriers do not come down, I do not see how we can survive. This has got to become like America again. You have to be free to walk around.”

“Everybody should understand the consequences of their actions,” he said.

Epstein says he’s brought his plight to the attention of city officials and police and has been met with empathy. But the barriers are still in place.

“Everybody’s empathetic and they’ll have lots to say at my eulogy,” he said. “I don’t want to be eulogized. I want the barriers down.”

This Is What Hypocrisy Looks Like: Many ‘Occupy’ Protesters Live In Luxury – Daily Caller

Many “Occupy Wall Street” protesters arrested in New York City reside in more luxurious homes than some of their rhetoric might suggest, a Daily Caller investigation has found.

For each of the 984 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in New York City between September 18 and October 15, police collected and filed an information sheet recording the arrestee’s name, age, sex, criminal charge, home address and – in most cases – race. The Daily Caller has obtained all of this information from a source in the New York City government.

Among addresses for which information is available, single-family homes listed on those police intake forms have a median value of $305,000 – a far higher number than the $185,400 median value of owner-occupied housing units in the United States.

Some of the homes where “Occupy” arrestees reside, viewed through Google Maps and the Multiple Listing Service real estate database, are the definition of opulence.


Texas: This mansion has five bedrooms and, from the looks of it, plenty of space for a drum circle. Its economically disadvantaged occupant was arrested while “occupying” Wall Street on October 5.


New Jersey: This quaint 3,800-square-foot manse sits on a quiet cul-de-sac, and it’s valued at nearly $500,000. The poverty-stricken Occupy Wall Street protester who lives here was arrested on October 5.


California: Just a half-hour’s drive from Berkeley, this victorian boasts 3 fireplaces, granite countertops and a wet bar. It’s a 5,000-square-foot anti-capitalist’s dream – at least for one cash-strapped Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 1.


Maryland: This $1.4 million home in a quiet suburb of Washington, DC is home to an Occupy Wall Street activist arrested on October 5. It has a tree-filled lot, nearly 3,000 square feet of space, a swimming pool and a half-acre to roam on. What more could a destitute protester want?

Using county assessors and online resources such as Zillow.com, TheDC estimated property values and rents for 87 percent of the homes and 59 percent of the apartments listed in the arrest records.

Even in the nation’s currently depressed housing market, at least 95 of the protesters’ residences are worth approximately $500,000 or more.

The median monthly rent for those living in apartments – whose information is readily available – is $1,850.

London’s Daily Mail newspaper, for example, recently highlighted signs of wealth among the throngs in Zuccotti Park.

“Sleeping beside the hardcore activists are increasing numbers of wealthy students turning up to make the most of the party atmosphere, drugs and free food,” reporters Paul Bentley and Micela McLucas wrote in October. “While they dress down to blend in, the youngsters’ privileged backgrounds are revealed by glimpses of expensive gadgetry or the absent minded mention of their private schools during heated political debates.”

The 99%: Official List Of Occupy Wall Street’s Supporters, Sponsors And Sympathizers

The 99%: Official List Of Occupy Wall Street’s Supporters, Sponsors And Sympathizers – Pajamas Media

The Occupy Wall Street movement has received so much media coverage in recent weeks that it’s nearly impossible to keep abreast of all the developments. So many endorsements and criticisms coming from all directions enter the news cycle in such rapid succession that even the most dedicated news junkies may have missed out on many of the pronouncements. Supporters and detractors of OWS both might find it useful to have a handy all-inclusive list of who has endorsed or embraced the protest.

To satisfy that demand, we hereby present a list of groups, organizations, individuals and entities that have expressed their support for, sponsorship of, or sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Note: All entries on this list are real and verified. Below each entry you will find a series of source links documenting the support for OWS. We have striven in almost all cases to reference either first-hand statements by the groups or individuals themselves, hosted on their own Web sites; or videos of the people in question voicing their support for OWS at various Occupations; or news reports from reliable mainstream networks; or articles by publications or organizations sympathetic to the Occupy movement; or indisputable evidence, whatever the source. As a result, it cannot be claimed that these statements of support were made up or distorted by detractors of the Occupy movement.

As each new controversial endorsement has appeared over the last month, OWS supporters have dismissed them one by one as “isolated examples” that don’t reflect any overall trend toward extremism. But when viewed in aggregate like this, it becomes much more difficult to dismiss any individual endorsement as an aberration; instead, an undeniable pattern emerges.

This list is obviously incomplete; we hope to update it over the upcoming days and weeks.

If you think we’ve left out any well-known endorsers for which there is solid evidence, then please post suggestions and evidentiary links in the comments section; but please try to supply links that will stand up to any potential claims of misrepresentation.

If you disagree with the inclusion of any of the entries on this list, please post your reasoning and any contravening source links in the comments section, and we will take the evidence into account when updating the list.

Members of the media, bloggers, activists, OWS supporters and detractors as well are all free to repost this list, in whole or in part, without any restrictions. Do note, however, that it may be updated over time, so make sure to get the latest version.

And without further ado, here is…

*** Updated 10/29/2011

Here are 11 more incidents sent to me by readers for a total of 92. On top of everything else, imagine the drain all this lawlessness has on law enforcement resources. My list doesn’t even include the collateral damage. Thanks to Occupy Wall Street’s drain on police personnel, shootings increased 154% in New York alone. What is it in Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Oakland, and Cleveland?

Just last week Vice President Joe Biden was all freaked out about the possibility of crime rates increasing if Congress didn’t pass Obama’s Son of Stimulus. Well, that premise was based on a lie, but the same White House trying to sell that bill of bull isn’t at all concerned with the very real increase in crime caused by the Occupiers they encourage.

*** End Update

One of the secret weapons the corrupt mainstream media uses in their never-ending quest to Palace Guard for the left is context. For example, when it came to the Tea Party, the MSM was notorious for amplifying a single incident (that was usually a lie) and using it to attempt to smear and define an entire movement. This is what you do when you want to quickly take out a political enemy.

The MSM’s contextual game changes, however, when their desire is to strengthen a movement and give it credibility and room to grow. By dutifully reporting individual incidents but not reporting on the growing scope and size of Occupy Wall Street lawlessness, the MSM is willfully covering up the violence, vandalism, and anti-Semitism that truly does define this movement.

……………

Moreover, by intentionally keeping the pieces of this story scattered, the MSM is allowed to have their cake and eat it too. No one can accuse them of not reporting these incidents, but by choosing not to bring the pieces together, the MSM ensures the least amount of public relations damage is done to the Occupiers.

What I’ve collected below is far from comprehensive but still shows over 75 incidents of sexual assault, violence, vandalism, anti-Semitism, extortion, perversion, and lawlessness.

The MSM could easily tell the story of how this violence-prone movement is becoming an increasing threat to our society. After all, my research below is the result of nothing more than Twitter and Google. Among others, The New York Times, Washington Post, Politico, and the LA Times have willfully chosen not to use the resources at their disposal to give the public an honest look at this growing menace. In their partisan minds, truth doesn’t trump agenda.

A few notes on the list below. Whenever possible, I traced the incident back to the original news source. I was as careful as possible when it came to duplicate postings, though I would guess there are a few in here. There are also less than five examples that don’t involve what I would qualify as outright lawlessness but do help to expose the Occupiers for who and what they really are. Finally, and this is the most important way in which the list is imperfect, I most certainly wasn’t able to document everything. A perfect list would be much more alarming than the one I slapped together in just a few hours.

What is true is that on October 18, pollster Doug Schoen (a Democrat!) discovered that a full 31% of Occupiers were willing to commit violence
in pursuit of their agenda, whatever that is. As a response to this startling and frightening admission, the MSM either outright ignored or dismissed it. What you’ll see below proves that at least when it comes to their willingness to break the law, the Occupiers are keeping their word.

The list is in no particular order. Like the Occupiers themselves, it’s unruly, disorganized, messy and not focused solely on the nation’s media centers. The movement is spreading across America and bringing with it their outrageous and appalling behavior.

Occupy Wall St. Sanctioned For Public Masturbation – Powerline

The Occupiers aren’t a political movement, they are a crime wave! It started with sexual assault, drug dealing, rioting and attacks on police officers. Now Occupy Madison has been denied a permit because of a history of public masturbation:

City officials temporarily denied Occupy Madison a new street use permit Wednesday after protesters violated public health and safety conditions and failed to follow the correct processes to renew or amend a permit…

A neighboring hotel’s staff alleged voiced concerns about having to recently escort hotel employees to and from bus stops late at night due to inappropriate behavior, such as public masturbation, from street protesters.

In addition, officials agreed further occupation should not be allowed to continue without restrooms on site to avoid further public health violations.

Meanwhile, the crime wave continues with assaults in New York and threats of violence against policemen in Boston. (Via InstaPundit.

What a bunch of low-lifes these leftists are! And what an act of political desperation by Barack Obama, Nancy Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party to identify themselves with the Occupiers! I can see it now, the administration’s campaign slogan for 2012: “If you like public masturbation, re-elect Barack Obama!” On second thought, though: even that would be better for Obama than talking about the economy.

UPDATE: More, via your go-to site for the latest news on the Occupy crime wave, Occupy Wall Street Exposed, which is back in operation after surviving two days of DOS attacks and hacks by liberals. The latest in the liberal perp-walk: in New Hampshire, an Occupier is charged with felony prostitution for trying to pimp a 16-year-old girl. In Phoenix, an Occupier flyer asks, “When should you shoot a cop?” Do you suppose any member of the White House press corps will ask President Obama for his opinion on these activities by the left-wingers he has embraced? No, I don’t think so either. But the Democrats have hung the Occupier anvil around their own necks, and it is too late for them to disown their allies now.
