The “As If” Government Non-Farm Employment Report

Statism survives by looting. A free country survives by producing – Ayn Rand

What’s amusing about the jobs report is that everyone discusses them as if they are valid.  Even to the extent that they know the numbers are absurdly manipulated, they still dissect, analyze and discuss them “as if.”  It makes for terrific Broadway comedy and yet it’s tragically pathetic.  I laugh my a** off watching supposedly Ivy-league educated Wall Street experts get on Financial Comedy TV and opine on the latest numbers as if they are real or actually represent any semblance of truth or fact.

2014 Silver Maple

From Truth in Gold:

Friday’s number for instance, forget where and how the alleged job growth game from, we know that’s wrong, but a much better than expected number should have sent the stock market and metals into a tailspin over the fear of a December taper.  But the SPX is up 1% and the metals, after their customary “no matter what the news is bashing,” are now up big from their post-report lows:  up 2% for gold and 2.3% for silver.

Explain that one if the market really believes that the jobs report is valid, bona fide and truthful and if the market really believes that the Fed will taper.

The other interesting note is that the dollar soared right after the report, but it has since pulled back a stunning 36 basis points from it’s high-tick today.  The dollar index futures continuous contract can’t hold the 50-day moving average any better than Warren Buffet can hold his bladder.

Beneath the Orwellian veneer of morose Government lies and misrepresentation, I think the market knows the truth.  If not the bubblehead entitled idiots in this country, then certainly the biggest non-Japanese holders of dollars – namely the Chinese and Arabs.

I guess what would be the funniest part about the Government trying to force-feed the fraudulent data reports down our gullets like geese headed for the fois gras slaughter pen is that the average formerly middle class American is in financial pain.  We see that from the plunging savings rate and soaring use of credit to try and finance the elusive and dubiously “good life” of the proverbial Joneses.  By “middle class” I mean anyone not wealthy enough with cash to buy their own DC politician.  That’s clearly not these people who are part the 61% jump in those defaulting on luxury mortgages:  Luxury Mortgage Default Rate Jumps 61%.

But the market eventually flushes out the truth, and that’s becoming apparent with the decline in yesterday’s consumption metric of the GDP report, with the decline in holiday retail sales and with the desperation being reflected by the preponderance of “for sale” and “coming soon” signs popping up outside of homes all over the country at the worst time of the year to sell a house.

  1. PM manipulators got their a** burned today. Go short-squeezing, LMAO

  2. Federal Open Mouth Committee members are going to do some orals today; and next week. They’re cornered and desperate as more and more people can see.

  3. Those of us who keep our ears open during holiday gatherings will hear a completely different viewpoint on the current availability of jobs, than what the .gov reports say.

    • Mammoth, someday we need to party. As always 90% of the time you hit the nail on the head. Sure would like to hear what the sheep say!

    • Thank you @Ranger , but be careful what you say – I will hold you to it.
      The first toast (straight shot of Vodka) will to keeping the Faith and thinking positive.

  4. Jobs on the gravy train are far and few between. It’s easy to find work that sucks.  This is the wrong crowd to be talking about jobs I think.  If your smart enough to buy Silver well then you probably are smart enough to be employed or even better earning your own income.  The contract I’m working under expires in November.  Just in time for all of the fair weather bicycle couriers to abandon their posts.  You can always find employment as a courier in the winter.  Nobody likes freezing their nuts off.  There’s other stuff.  I always like to have at least two jobs in case I have to tell somebody like some overbearing boss to stick it. When I’m ready to do that I already have a third one lined up.  It’s easier to burn bridges that way.
