25 Statistics About The U.S.  Economy  Barack Obama Does Not Want You To Know

April 30, 2012 9:49 Author: The American Dream


The human capacity for self-delusion truly is remarkable.  Most  people out there end up believing exactly what they want to believe  even when  the truth is staring them right in the face. Take the U.S.  economy for example.  Barack Obama wants to believe that his policies have  worked and that the U.S.  economy is improving. So that is what he is  telling the American people. The  mainstream media wants to believe that  Barack Obama is a good president and that  his policies make sense and so  they are reporting that we are experiencing an  economic recovery. A very  large segment of the U.S. population still fully  supports Barack Obama and  they want to believe that the economy is getting  better so they are buying  the propaganda that the mainstream media is feeding  them. But is the U.S.  economy really improving? The truth is that it is not. The  rate of  employment among working age Americans is exactly where it was two years   ago and household incomes have actually gone down while Obama has been   president. Home ownership levels and home prices continue to decline.  Meanwhile,  food and gasoline continue to become even more expensive. The  percentage of  Americans that are dependent on the government is at an  all-time record high and  the U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5  trillion dollars under Obama. We  simply have not seen the type of economic  recovery that we have seen after every  other economic recession since  World War II.

The horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that you  are  about to read are not talked about much by the mainstream media. They  would  rather be “positive” and “upbeat” about the direction that things  are  headed.

But lying to the American people is not going to help them.  If  you are speeding in a car toward a 500 foot cliff, you don’t need  someone to  cheer you on. Instead, you need someone to slam on the  brakes.

The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the U.S.  economy  is in far worse shape than it was four or five years  ago.

We have never come close to recovering from the last  recession  and another one will be here soon.

The following are 25 horrible statistics about the U.S.   economy that Barack Obama does not want you to know….

#1 The percentage of Americans that own homes is  dropping  rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of homeownership  in the United  States is the lowest that Gallup has ever  measured.

#2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall like a rock  as  well. They have declined for six months in a row and are now down a  total of 35  percent from the peak of the housing bubble. The last time  that home prices in  the United States were this low was back in  2002.

#3 Last year, an astounding 53 percent of all U.S.  college  graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or   underemployed.

#4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all unemployed  Americans  had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today, that number  is above 30  percent.

#5 When Barack Obama first became president, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was 2.6 million. Today,  it  is 5.3 million.

#6 The average duration of unemployment in the United  States  is about three times as long as it was back in the year  2000.

#7 Despite what the mainstream media would have us to  believe,  the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans that  are employed is  not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all  working age Americans  were employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all  working age Americans were  employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all  working age Americans were  employed. So how can Barack Obama and the  mainstream media claim that the  employment situation in the United States  is getting better? The employment rate  is still essentially exactly where  it was when the last recession supposedly  ended.

#8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the  United  States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the  United States  have jobs.

#9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in America were   manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were   manufacturing jobs.

#10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you can buy a  three  bedroom home for just $500.

#11 According to one recent survey, approximately one-third  of  all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this  point.

#12 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the price  of  gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent.

#13 The student loan debt bubble continues to expand at a  very  frightening pace. Recently it was announced that total student loan  debt in the  United States has passed the one trillion dollar  mark.

#14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs in the United   States pays $10 an hour or less at this point.

#15 Household incomes all over  the  United States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median  household  income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December  2007.

#16 Over the past several decades, government dependence  has  risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The following is  how I  described the explosive growth of social welfare benefits in one  recent  article….

Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made up approximately  10  percent of all salaries and wages. In the year 2000, social welfare  benefits  made up approximately 21 percent of all salaries and wages.  Today, social  welfare benefits make up approximately 35 percent of all  salaries and  wages.

#17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on  food  stamps. Today, more than 46 millionAmericans are on food  stamps.

#18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American  children  are on food stamps.

#19 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, today 49 percent  of  all Americans live in a home that receives some form of benefits from  the  federal government.

#20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded   liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for  each  and every household in the United States.

#21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S. public debt rose  by  359.1 billion dollars. U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion  dollars.

#22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is rising by  more  than 2 million dollars every single minute.

#23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5  trillion  dollars since the day that Barack Obama first took office. In a  little more than  3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than  the first 41 presidents  combined.

#24 The Federal Reserve bought up approximately 61 percent  of  all government debt issued by the U.S. Treasury Department during   2011.

#25 The Federal Reserve continues to systematically  destroy  the value of the U.S. dollar. Since 1970, the U.S. dollar has lost  more than 83  percent of its value.

But the horrible economic statistics only tell part of  the  story.

In communities all over America there is a feeling that   something fundamental has changed. Businesses that have been around for   generations are shutting their doors and there is a lot of fear in the air.  The  following is a brief excerpt from a recent interview with Richard  Yamarone, the  senior economist at Bloomberg Brief….

You have to listen to what the small businesses are  telling  you and right now they are telling you, ‘Hey, I’m the head of a  3rd or 4th  generation, 75 or 100 year old business, and I’ve got to shut  the doors’ or ‘I’ve got to let people go. And if I’m hiring anybody back, it’s  only on a  temporary basis.’

Sometimes they do this through a hiring firm so that they  can  sidestep paying unemployment benefit insurance. So that’s what’s  really going on  at the grassroots level of the economy. Very, very,  grossly different from what  you’re seeing in some of these numbers coming  out in earnings  releases.”

All over the country, millions of hard working Americans  are  desperately looking for work. They have been told that “the recession  is over”, but they are still finding it incredibly difficult to find anyone that  will hire  them. The following example is from a recent CNN  article….

Joann Cotton, a 54-year-old Columbus, Mississippi,  resident,  was one of those faces of poverty we met on the tour. Unemployed  for three  years, Joann has gone from making “$60,000 a year to less than  $15,000  overnight.” Her husband is disabled and dependent on medicines the  couple can no  longer afford. They rely on food stamps, which, Joann says, “is depressing as  hell.”

Receiving government aid, however, has not been as  depressing  as her job search. Joann says she has applied for at least 300  jobs. Even though  she can barely afford gas, she drives to the interviews  only to learn that the  employers want to hire younger candidates at low  wages.

The experiences have taken a toll: “I’ve aged 10 years in  the  three years that I’ve been looking for a job,” Joann told us. “I want  to get a  job so I can just relax and exhale … but I can’t. After a while  you just give  up.”

Meanwhile, Barack Obama and his family continue to live  the  high life at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer.

Even many Democrats are starting to get very upset about  this.  The following is from a recent article by Paul Bedard….

Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing “staycations” because they can’t afford gas and hotels, are resentful of  the  first family’s 17 lavish vacations around the world and don’t want  their tax  dollars paying for the Obamas’ holidays, according to a new  analysis of swing  voters.

It simply is not appropriate for the Obamas to be  spending  millions upon millions upon millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars on  luxury  vacations when so many Americans are deeply suffering.

But Barack Obama does not want you to know about any of  this  stuff.

He just wants you to buy his empty propaganda one more time  so  that he can continue to occupy the White House for another four   years.

BOTH OBAMAS SURRENDERED law licenses  in '93 and '08


05/09/2012  AmericanPatriot

This can be easily veriified at href="https://www.iardc.org/"  target=_blank>https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois  Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of  lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as  hell.
1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the  Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in  2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.
A "Voluntary Surrender" is not something where you  decide "Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?" and  forget to renew your license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do  when you've been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender" your  license five seconds before the state suspends you.
2 Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law  license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering  her license or STAND TRIAL FOR insurance  FRAUD.
3. So, we have the first black President and First "Lady" - who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts. Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barack​-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-la... 4.  A senior lecturer is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is another. Barack  Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of  Chicago. 5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March 2008  saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school-but  that is a title. Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a  spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008. 6. "He did not hold the title  of Professor of Law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for  Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of  Law. Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_obam​a_did_hold_the_title.html  ; 7. The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the U.S.  Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address.  Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence ...  not the Constitution. 8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-cons​titution-with-the-declaration-of-independence/ 9.  Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: "We find  unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our  Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal. 10. Um, wrong  citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way,  the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The  document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:  We hold these  truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed  by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,  Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 11. And this is the same guy who  lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech?

OUT OF THE CLOSET: Obama’s Gay Marriage ‘Evolution’ Deception

By Bruce Thornton On May 10, 2012  In Daily Mailer,FrontPage


Reconciliation with boyfriend  Barak

Join the club.


In yet another act of election-year cynicism, Barack Obama has just  announced, “I think same-SX couples should be able to get married.” This  statement follows similar pronouncements by Joe Biden and Education Secretary  Arne Duncan. To hear Obama tell it, this change reflects his “evolution” away  from his previously stated pposition which he made clear in 2008 a few days  before the election: “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not  in favor of gay marriage.” That same year he told Reverend Rick Warren that  marriage is a “union between a man and a woman,” adding that it is a “sacred  union” with “God in the mix.” Both statements contradicted what he had told a  Chicago gay newspaper in 1996 while running for the Illinois state senate: “I  favor legalizing same-sx marriage.” No wonder this year’s electoral conversion  smells suspicious even to Obama cheerleader MSNBC, which on its First Read blog  brushed past the personal “evolution” pretext and zeroed in on the political  calculus: “Obama’s shift not only speaks to a broad swath of the electorate,  which has exhibited increasing acceptance of same-sxmarriage in opinion polls,  but also gay and lesbian voters who compose a core part of Obama’s base, and  have been major fundraisers for his re-election.”

This latest about-face, then, clearly shows that Obama’s 2008 opposition to  gay marriage was devised to make him appear a centrist during the presidential  election, and that now he believes he can speak honestly and shore up his  progressive base.

That Obama would say one thing while believing another is well established by  his long track record of shifting his policy positions depending on whether he  is pandering to the center or the left––consider extraordinary renditions,  military tribunals, Guantanamo, or the surge in Iraq, all of which he  vociferously opposed until he supported them. Some might think that he is a rank  opportunist who believes in none of these positions, his public statements based  on tactical calculations reflecting polls and political necessity. Remember his  principled opposition to the evil Bush tax cuts, which he then extended a month  after the 2010 electoral “shellacking,” as he called it?

But consideration of the world from which Obama emerged points us to what he  really thinks. It beggars belief to think someone who has spent his whole adult  life in the progressive purlieus of academe and community activism, where gay  marriage, like abortion, is a sacrament, could sincerely be opposed to it. Like  taxing the greedy rich, America’s foreign policy sins, endemic white racism,  redistributionist economics, global warming, the evils of carbon-based energy,  deficit spending, conservative misogynism, and all the other scriptures in the  progressive psalter, the rightness and justness of gay marriage are revealed  truths that require obedience, not justification.


Indeed, gay marriage is particularly expressive of the progressive gospel,  for this issue concentrates all that sect’s fundamentalist doctrines. First, it  exemplifies the progressive idea that the traditional wisdom and beliefs of the  masses are benighted remnants of their ignorant, superstitious past from which  we should be evolving. The collective wisdom of the human race developed over  centuries is automatically suspect and to be rejected as irrational  justifications for oppression, exclusion, and the defense of unfair privilege.  Progressive moderns, supposedly armed with advances in knowledge discovered by  the “human sciences,” are better able to arrange society and human relations so  that they reflect the reality hidden to our religion-addled ancestors, and thus  can ensure justice and equality. So the belief based on faith, tradition, and  natural law that marriage is an institution joining a man and woman is to be  rejected, and society to be reshaped according to the truths possessed by  enlightened progressives.

Next, gay marriage is an important component of the identity politics that  dominate the liberal university. Like the other so-called minority victims of  historical prejudice, oppression, and exclusion, homosexuals are owed  affirmation and reparations in the form of faculty positions, gay-centric takes  on traditional disciplines like history or English, and their own departments,  majors, minors, or programs. Outside the university, laws and behavior  uncongenial to the gay agenda must be fought through the courts and the federal  government. To work, though, grievance politics requires grievances, for no  matter how successful or powerful a victim-group is, no matter how much progress  is made in eliminating prejudice or exclusion from institutions and laws, the  group must still find an injustice to fight in order to justify its existence  and privileges. For the gay lobby, traditional marriage is the most important  target, for it is passionately supported by those constituencies, especially  conservatives and people of faith, who stand in the way of the progressives’ agenda of reshaping society and human nature according to their utopian  ideology.

Finally, legalizing gay marriage necessarily requires empowering  anti-democratic federal bureaucrats and judges in order to override the stubborn  ignorance and bigotry of the people. Whatever polls might say about increasing  support for gay marriage, its proponents aren’t about to put the question to the  people’s vote. Remember California’s Proposition 8, which in 2008, the same year  Obama overwhelmingly won California, defined marriage in the state constitution  as solely between a man and a woman? It passed in this progressive bastion, to  be overturned later by the State Supreme Court. Progressives prefer to achieve  their aims not through democratic elections that reflect the will of the people,  but through unelected judges and bureaucrats who share the progressive  world-view that the people need to be coerced into believing so they’ll do the  right thing. Obama’s current flip-flop on gay marriage is another sign of his  preference for using coercive federal power to bypass the will of the states,  where such highly contested social issues should be adjudicated through the  democratic process.

Obama, of course, for three years has been regularly using presidential power  to bypass the people in order to shape policy. Marriage laws may be the purview  of the states, but don’t think that that cannot change. Remember, Obama ordered  the Department of Justice not to defend the democratically passed Defense of  Marriage Act, which was passed in part to protect the integrity of state laws.  He also has gone on record as saying the issue will ultimately be determined by  the Supreme Court, one or more of whose justices the next president will most  likely choose. It’s not unthinkable that some future Supreme Court will find the  Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and override the 32 state laws  defending traditional marriage.

Given how thoroughly the issue of gay marriage expresses the foundational  progressive beliefs that define the university and that underlie most of Obama’s  policies, it strains credulity to think that support for gay marriage hasn’t  been Obama’s actual pposition all along. Like his breakout 2004 speech at the  Democratic National Convention in which be proclaimed, “There is not a liberal  America and a conservative America––there is the United States of America,” his  support for traditional marriage was just one more patch of camouflage hiding  his progressive agenda.

Flashback: Obama’s Sordid High School  Past

by  Ben Shapiro 5/10/2012

While the Washington Post has been diligently digging  into relatively innocent high school pranks by Mitt Romney, they’ve spent the last  few years diligently ignoring President Obama’s far more controversial high  school days.

Obama, by all accounts, was a  habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams  From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.” The Chicago Tribune reported back in 2007 that Obama thanked the “Choom  Gang” in his high school yearbook; “chooming” was Hawaiian slang for smoking  pot. The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama’s senior portrait “prominently displayed … A package of ‘Zig-Zag’ rolling papers and a matchbook.” One of Obama’s close friends was arrested for drug possession during high  school.


In his memoir, Obama talked about routinely getting high. “Junkie. Pothead,” he wrote. “That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal  role of the young would-be black man.” But, according to Obama, he only got high  because he was contemplating deep matters: drugs could “push questions of who I  was out of my mind.”


Obama told students in 2007 that this activity constituted “goofing off” and “wasting time”:


"I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof off in high  school as my mom reminded me," Obama said. "I went to high school in Hawaii, so  there's a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all  the time.

"You know, I made some bad decisions …. You know, got into  drinking and experimenting with drugs. There was a whole stretch of time where I  didn't apply myself. It wasn't until I got out of … high school, and went to  college that I started realizing, man, I wasted a lot of time.”



The New York Times, however, went out of its way to  find Obama’s classmates to testify that drugs played only a “bit part” in Obama’s youth. Yet Obama would  later brag on the campaign trail that he “inhaled frequently … that was the  point.”


During his high school years, Obama hung out with  communist radical Frank Marshall Davis; in 2007, the Los Angeles Times  reported that during his high school days, “he felt the first stirrings of anger  toward whites. He says he also delved into black nationalism.” He was “offended  or even enraged when white classmates adopted black street slang or revealed  their underlying consciousness of his race by going out of their way to tell him  how much they admired a black musician or athlete.”


This activity is certainly more reflective of Obama’s  ideological history than Mitt Romney’s pranks on teachers and fellow students.  And as for the drug use – well, that seems just a bit more serious than walking  a teacher into a door or cutting a student’s hair. But leave it to the Post to ignore or downplay all of that in favor of continuing stories  about Romney’s dog, his high school hijinks, and whatever other nonsense they  can use to protect President Obama from his own incompetence.
