   Bettijo  Stunning Surprise Revealed in The May Jobs Report

The BLS Monthly jobs numbers reported during the Obama Economic Recovery always seem a bit suspect.

This month, May 2015, appears to be no exception.

A close look inside the numbers reveals a surprising trend about who is landing jobs.

This Zero Hedge article dives inside the job report numbers to reveal that “foreign born workers” are landing most of the jobs:

But the biggest surprise came from Table 7, where the BLS reveals the number of “foreign born workers” used in the Household survey. In May, this number increased to 25.098 million, the second highest in history, a monthly jump of 279K.

Assuming, the Household and Establishment surveys were congruent, this would mean that there was just 1K native-born workers added in May of the total 280K jobs added.

Alternatively, assuming the series, which is not seasonally adjusted, was indicative of seasonally adjusted data, then the 272K increase in total Household Survey civilian employment in May would imply a decline of 7K native-born workers offset by the increase of 279K “foreign borns.”

But while all of these comparisons are apples to oranges, using the BLS’ own Native-Born series, also presented on an unadjusted basis, we find the following stunner: since the start of the Second Great Depression, the US has added 2.3 million “foreign-born” workers, offset by just 727K “native-born”.

Of course, the Main Stream Media will never report what’s really happening inside the job numbers. Also, we’ll never hear that “the ‘foreign-born’ category includes both legal and illegal immigrants unfortunately, the BLS is unable, or unwilling, to distinguish between the two.”

This report confirms what most “native born” and legal United States citizens know. When 75% of the jobs are going to “foreign born” workers, wages are kept low and the economic recovery is an illusion for many American citizens.

It’s all a dangerous smoke and mirrors monetary policy that keeps wages depressed for skilled, hard-working Americans.

   Mildred  I've been missing them too. I have also noted that there are fewer and fewer posts. I, for one, will probably leave soon because of all the ads that keep popping up. I can't get rid of them. I use AdFender and Lucianne is the only site that I visit where AdFender can't stop the ads. The silly animated ads are the worst!

   RedWhiteBlue  Have you tried AdBlocker Plus? I've had for a little while now and haven't had a add pop up since, not here or anywhere else. I have Firefox. I never had AdFender so I don't know the diff.

   Mildred  RedWhiteBlue: I've used AdBlocker in the past and can't remember why I stopped using it. I then tried AdFender and really liked it. I use Explorer and have not had any ads except on Lucianne and Yahoo Mail. I recently got a new computer and had no ads on Lucianne for about a week and then they started at various times of the day, mosttly at night. I think there are a few 'ad placement' businesses (or whatever they call them ) that have found a way to work around AdFender and certain websites. If an ad pops up, I can exit Lucianne and when I click on again the ad is gone so I guess AdFender works in some way. This is all a mystery to me!

   Mildred  The mystery is solved. I've been getting a brown horizontal bar to the right of the Must Reads on the Home Page. Didn't know what it was. Well, today it finally had a name: Adiply. Lucianne is now 'multiplying' its ad revenue by covering the pages with more ads. I still haven't found a way to uninstall it. Anyone know how to do this?

   MeiDei  Thanks for posting. I always shudder when I hear him proclaim reverently "The HOLY Koran" while casually mentioning the "bible" (his small b ). Seems to me he also confuses the pre-Islam Persians with the post Arabic Iranians who caused the Persians to flee their country or be sacrificed.

   Fireball27  Anyone else notice how nothing is being said about how the shooter in Chattanooga was able to drive across town and attack another military location without the second military location being warned and put on lockdown? I've heard it took about 30 minutes from the first shot to the last. Even if it only took 5 minutes, why wasn't the second site warned? Who is responsible? Why were our troops sitting ducks, when they could have and should have been warned? I haven't heard anyone mention this. Those Marines should not have been out there. First they don't let them arm themselves, and then they don't even tell them a threat may be coming their way.

   Safetydude  We learned nothing from the Fort Hood massacre.
There were some senior NCO's in that building that could, maybe, have stopped the perp.
Those recruiters could have been armed, they are trained to handle firearms, after all and might have been able to return fire(now, that's comment from somebody who wasn't there )but understands what a 'gun free zone' is.

Why is the shooter still referred to as "the suspect"?

   Safetydude  I was serving in the AF when George(Read My Lips:No New Taxes )H.W. Bush was President and signed DoD Directive 5210.56 declaring that all military installation were 'gun free zones'.
Most of us who lived off base had guns in our vehicles and brought them with us when we came on duty. It was a 'wink, wink, nod, nod' deal by the guy on the gate. Once I got caught in a random stop and had to follow the cop down to the armory where they kept my, still loaded, pistol 'till I picked it up on my way home. '92 is a long time ago, but I think if you lived on base you could own guns but now you had to belong to the base gun club and you had to store your gun(s ) there. You couldn't keep firearms in your residence.
(I'm open for corrections on that ).

When we were stationed overseas or going on an OCONUS deployment every cargo bin, tool box or vehicle was stuffed with personal weapons.

That was then.

So I guess Maj Nadal Hasan used an imaginary FN.
Too bad the security forces are such bad shots. He should have been filled with .40's.

   Gram77  Small problem: I am on facebook and comment often. All of a sudden yesterday I tried to comment several times and as always after I comment I hit the enter button and nothing will post. Would someone who is willing to speak in words an 83 year old can understand be willing to tell me why this is happening? Many thanks. Gram

   Fireball27  Don't you just love the way the liberals are reacting to the Planned Parenthood news? Just when you thought they couldn't stoop any lower. If someone told them they were squishing puppy heads and legs, and taking the internal organs out for sale they would scream bloody murder. But since these are little human "blobs of tissue" it doesn't bother them. Actually I think it does bother them, but since they are liberals, they can't stray from the liberal way of thinking. This just turns my stomach. Make sure to pass this story along because you know the media is going to try to ignore it.

   Linder  Took my almost 12 yr old granddaughter with to hear Gov. Rick Perry speak at a southern Iowa event today. For the first time since 1976 I don't know who I will support for president at Iowa Caucus. Will have to keep going to events until I've seen the candidates I'm considering. Aside from his stand on issues which we all have access to I liked his demeanor...his earnestness...GW like...may just be the Texas in him but as a rural person I relate.

   Balogreene  Linder, when I was about your granddaughter's age, our Girl Scout troop went out the the Rockford, IL airport to see JFK. All of my parent's friends voted against him, but, I've never forgotten the magic of seeing a man who was running for President of our country. Your Granddaughter is very lucky, and just made a wonderful memory, no matter who any of us end up supporting.

   Fireball27  Howie Kurtz's MediaBuzz is on and the two reporters with him can't call Donald Trump enough names. They don't want to talk about the issues, just how Trump is a "clown, blowhard, etc." Howie shows a clip of Trump giving an interviewer a push back on what she was saying, again mentioning "immigrants" not committing a lot of crimes, not ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. He is really getting under their skin. They are really making a fool of themselves. Not that they care.
