Corrupt & Criminal Media Withheld Reports on Economic Realities Until After Election

You may have thought the mainstream media was in the tank for Obama this year… But you had no idea just how far they were willing to go to support Obama.
You had no idea.

The media went so far as to withhold information on Obama’s destructive policies until after the election. And, it was not just one report – it was several reports.

The Obama Administration and their toadies in the media hid the record food stamp numbers from the American public until after the election.

47.1 million Americans were on food stamps last month – an all-time record. This report that usually comes out early in the month was delayed until after the election. (IBD Chart)

Investor’s Business Daily has noticed several other reports that were just being reported this week after the election, including:

** Real average hourly earnings dropped again in October
** The number of poor people in America climbed 712,000 in 2011.
** Food stamp enrollment exploded by more than 420,000 in August.
** The number of new jobless claims shot up to 439,000 last week, up 78,000 from the week before
** We also learned that the annual inflation rate climbed to 2.2%
** Coal plants are closing
** Small banks are shutting down

And the Washington Post just happened to release this report today on the so-called Obama recovery.

The media worked tirelessly for Barack Obama this year.
And thanks to their not-so-secret campaigning for Obama, America will suffer for four more years under this miserable far left administration.

    Maybe the country isn’t worth saving as many say. When the new credo is ask not what the country can do for you, but what the country can take from someone else to give to you.

    For every parasite to die – the host may have to die, too.

  • Francesca

    WHY can’t this be stopped? Aren’t there any possible penalties for something like this? A HUGE fine.

    Everyone: Cancel them; don’t watch them, let them know the reason.

  • GotFreedom

    Want to get back at the lame stream. . .stop buying their newspapers/magazines/don’t watch their tv shows, etc. . .hit them in the pocket and that will change their tune (we hope).

  • Francesca

    We have no chance to save our country if we don’t find a way to stop this withholding of information.

  • Preston Rogers

    Start a national boycott of the people who advertise on these channels….

  • vityas

    It wouldn’t have mattered anyway.
    Anyone who voted for him doesn’t care about the economy.
    And it doesn’t matter now because it’s a lawless administration.

  • RealMc

    And on top of that…………in just under 4 years…………

    how many will vote for Biden.

    Something to think about because it will be he and shrillary going for the gold in 2016.

  • Why withhold anything, when they can lie about anything and 54% of morons in this country would really believe that the moon is made of blue cheese and Easter bunnies do lay colored eggs…..We are so screwed…….

  • Preston Rogers

    Look at what happened to advertisers on the Rush Limbaugh Show…The left made such a profound job calling the companies who advertised on his Radio Program that a lot of prominent sponsors stopped advertising…That is what will happen if we do the same… HIT EM WHERE IT HURTS

  • Dave in NYC

    Seriously! How could they not report on the jobless claims that weren’t filed until after the election? Librul media bias!!!11!!!1

  • JW

    People put too much trust in government and other people to tell them what they claim is true. Start finding out the truth for yourself, and trust only God. There’s no excuse.

  • myohmy

    The media are committing cognitive suicide – the self-poisoning occurs when you believe your own crazy propaganda. The media are rotting from the inside.

  • This isn’t really news to a lot of us. We knew the MSM was carrying Owebama’s water.

  • Wouldn’t have mattered. Obama won because of free programs, amnesty promises, and the fact young people are dumber than a bag of hammers.

    To think the reports being withheld would have made a difference to the voters who went for him dismisses the painful fact that we have been dying economically for four years. There has been plenty out there for anyone to look at that would make them realize Obama is driving us off the cliff.

    It just didn’t matter to them. One- you have to give Obama’s people credit. They managed to hang the economy around Bush’s neck and people accepted it as truth. So, any bad news is really Bush’s fault and any good news shows Obama is trying to make it better.

    Two- We know that is bull, but the people- mostly greedy, shallow, incurious sheep- simply accepted it as truth and moved on. To challenge that would take effort and thought.

    Do you think the 18-29 age group in America, with their public school education, care to make that effort?

    Or the illegals and their legal cousins? Or the blacks in Philly? Hell, half of them can’t spell challenge or effort, but are darned good in the word “EBT”.

    No this problem is bigger than an in the tank media. It helps Obama but it isn’t the whole problem. It will take years, generations maybe, to “unlearn” what has been forced down the throats of the people of all ages.

    Long row to hoe, brothers. Long row.

    The media worked tirelessly for Barack Obama this year.
    And thanks to their not-so-secret campaigning for Obama, America will suffer for four more years under this miserable far left administration.

    I have to disagree. We owe Romney’s loss to the Republicans and right-leaning independents who–knowing the stakes–either stayed home or voted for Gary Johnson.

    These voters knew what the real situation is because they’re living it. But they were angry that their preferred candidate didn’t get chosen or their pet issues weren’t being addressed, so they picked up their toys and went home.

    I’ve heard lots of these people say things like, “Let it burn so we can rebuild,” or “It’s better that a Democrat be at the wheel than a Republican when the collapse comes.”

    Here’s a question to these people: If you’re on an airplane that’s gone into a dive, which offers you a better chance of survival?

    1. The plane augers into the ground nose first at 500 miles per hour;

    2. An experienced pilot takes the controls and tries for a belly landing?

    Also, to the “Let it burn!” crowd, you’re under the delusion that letting it burn will cause a year or so of inconvenience. Try this on for size:

    If we allow the crash that you want, it’ll take us decades just to get back to where we were before the crash. The first 100 percent of a recovery is devoted to simply making up what was lost. You’re advocating a reduced standard of living for the foreseeable future.

    You made a horribly poor, childish, inexcusable choice in the last election. If you want to know who to blame for our continued misery, look in the mirror.

    Romney lost by 370,000 votes in four swing states. Thanks, guys. Appreciate it.

    I just don’t care anymore. Sure wish I’d seen this article back in January, would have saved me a lot of time, money, and anxiety.

  • Objective Analysis

    Call the MSM PROPAGANDISTS. They are not journalists. They promote a propaganda. They are wards of the state. Most of them are deviants (homosexuals, practice bestiality, incest, etc…) who don’t care about God or this country until they get raped by the Extremists Muslims they think they will protect.

  • Objective Analysis

    Look as it relates to Romney. HE WAS A LIBERAL. He wanted to repeal and REPLACE OBAMACARE. Really? When Soros states that their really is no difference between Obama and Romney after Romney won the RNC nomination, you guys knows the FIX WAS IN. Romney is a FOOL. He is a Rhino and a liberal. He was swiftboated by the MSM and the left b/c he was not a conservative and this elitist ignored the tea party and the evagelicals. Also, he was mormon. Conservatives were not going to be foold by Romney the disguised liberal. Period.

    Let the country fall into socialism. Buy your gun, get your bible, buy supplies (e.g. gold, food, generator) and hunker down. It is going to be the USSR very soon.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    You may have thought the mainstream media was in the tank for Obama this year…

    It wasn’t a thought; it was fact, and still is.

  • Perfected democrat

    #15, exactly right… the dumbing down of America may be most pronounced to the left of center, but it is not their exclusive domain…

  • valerie

    Hey, gotta keep those rich, white Democrats in office, so they can strip the treasury again.

  • the only way you can’t put a dent in this is to go after their advertizers. most of the media would rather go bankrupt then tell the truth. the businesses that pay for their propaganda not so much.

    So how much has Obama increased federal spending?

    7:53 am October 16, 2012, by Jay

    Mitt Romney has accused Barack Obama of igniting a “debt and spending inferno.” American Crossroads, the Karl Rove SuperPAC, says free spending by Obama “drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt.” Veep nominee Paul Ryan, who also chairs the House Budget Committee, this week accused Obama of stealing the next generation’s future with his spending spree.

    All of that talk finally got me curious: Just how much HAS spending increased under President Obama? Put another way, what does a “debt and spending inferno” look like in numerical terms?

    As the base year for this analysis, let’s take 2008, the last full year of George W. Bush’s presidency. You could make the argument for using 2009 as the base year, since the ‘09 spending bills had already been passed and fiscal 2009 was already almost four months underway by the time Obama took office. But to satisfy our conservative friends, we’ll take 2008 as a cleaner, less controversial starting point.

    So, after adjusting for inflation, how much did federal spending increase from fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2012, which ended Oct. 1? Any guesses?

    Just to give you some guidance in making that guess, federal spending under the sainted President Reagan grew by 9.6 percent from 1980 to 1984. (Again, all of these numbers are inflation-adjusted.) Under the second President Bush, with a largely Republican Congress, federal spending grew by 16.5 percent from 2000 to 2004.

    So how much has it increased under Obama’s “spending inferno”? 25 percent? 35 percent?

    The answer is 9.9 percent. Between 2008 and the recently completed fiscal 2012, total federal spending has increased by 9.9 percent, about the same amount as under Reagan and considerably less than under Bush.

    The chart above explains a lot about how we got here. On the right-hand side, you can see the impact of the Great Recession. In inflation-adjusted terms, federal spending is up less than 10 percent from 2008, but federal revenue is down substantially, falling 18 percent from fiscal ‘08 to ‘09.

    In the longer term, you can see the rate of spending growth pick up under Bush in 2001. You can see revenue falter as a result of a small recession in 2001, and then continue to slide as a result of the Bush tax cuts. Those tax cuts have permanently altered the revenue trajectory, and combined with the Great Recession account for much of our debt and deficit woes.

    So, to get bring us back to where we started:

    Spending growth of 9.6 percent makes you a great conservative hero.

    Spending growth of 9.9 percent makes you a great conservative villain.

    And spending growth of 16.5 percent, combined with large tax cuts, makes you a recent two-term president whom nobody in your party wants to mention, and sets your country on a financially dangerous glide path.

    – Jay Bookman

    Many conservatives fail to understand that this number doesn’t completely reflect the stupidity and incompetence of Subprime’s policies. It’s also a testament to the debased American citizenry that has embraced parasitism. Some of the recipients are truly needy indeed, but many of them are nothing but shameless opportunists.

    I’ll say it again, many of this country’s parasites don’t want jobs. They want Obama Money and free cellphones. But they demand respect!

    Obama is going to take the U.S. over the cliff of no return in the next four years – it is over for America as people know it, but sometimes there is a silver lining in every black cloud.

  • I wrote about the same thing Thursday (, only I consider it more a government conspiracy, with cooperation from the media. It’s the government that was holding back all the bad news. The media can’t make the food stamp report come out on time. The media can’t stop the Obama administation from ordering defense contractors to hold off on the layoff announcements until after the election. Etc.

  • Indiana

    #29 Joanne….

    Silver lining in every black cloud? Watch out, I’m sure that term has been labeled a “dog whistle” by now. LOL Someone call Nancy Pelosi or Tingles.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    And spending growth of 16.5 percent, combined with large tax cuts, makes you…

    It’s worth mentioning that after all this blathering by Bookman about Obie’s growth in spending via Bush’s growth in spending, what makes the difference is Obie’s seeming hostility toward prosperity and economic growth, both of which are needed to help dig us out of the big hole in the ground we now sit in. As long as he’s convinced that new taxes on “the rich” and even more government regulation are needed, we’re going to wallow in trillion dollar deficits, persistently high unemployment, and economic stagnation.

    Boycott them and the products they advertise. Maybe they will be hacked one day by anonymous who wont tolerate their corporate spending

    Let the ignorant masses who are suffering under BO continue to wallow in poverty and experience increased misery with each passing day. When enough of them are starving, homeless and diseased, I will laughingly suggest they “tell it to the Kenyan they elected.”

    [Barack Obama is not the problem. We are! Abortion is. Public schools are. A rotting pop culture is. Modernism in the Catholic Church is. Divorce and homosexual “marriage” are. Obama has been reelected simply because America, like any nation, will always only get the leaders she deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago…] latest from free republic.

    #15 Larry. . .

    while I understand your point and agree if that was the choice, be mindful of the fact that what appears is not always the truth. . Do we really understand how much voter fraud played in this election? Only if we look county y county at electoral districts and compare voting patterns can we fully appreciate the manipulation at work.

    And the MSM elitists help create and sell the lie. . .

    Now as for the plane heading down, Obama is like the Air France pilot of the airliner that crashed off Brazil. . .he is pulling the plane nose up with his stimulus spending (which for all was NOT a one time deal but $800B every year now baked in the budget) as well as his Quantitative Easing pumping in $40Bil a month (QE3) after pumping in $2 Trillion. . .

    Soon the economy will stall, and the ride down will NOT be easy. . .

    This is what you get from electing radicals as well as someone who did not grow up living the American Experience with both parents US citizens. . .

    And the MSM will lie until the very last second when it is too late!

  • squeaky

    something for the laid-off hostess workers to chew on. how many vp’s do you need? i worked for a state agency that had a director and 4 assistant directors [all political appointees] and at the time it didn’t occur to me. when the issue of lay-offs loomed its ugly head, it was the line workers they looked at.

  • squeaky

    among the things obama voters aren’t interested in. the GM’s alive angle of the obama campaign leaves out the punch line.

  • BobM

    We took God out of our public schools and have marginalized Him in public life. We let Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God be mocked and yet are told Muslim sensibities are responsible for worldwide riots and 4 American deaths due to a YouTube video that is offensive to Muhammad.. We are living in “opposite day” (as my grandchildren want to play yes means no and no means yes). Anyone with a brain has stopped their newspaper subscription and watching TV years ago. What to do now? Pray for God’s faithful remnant. Stay close to your family and prepare yourself to be strong. Stock up and stand tall for what you believe in. This year wish people a Merry Christmas, not happy holidays. How can we expect God’s blessing when we deny Him a place in our lives?

  • Ciccio

    No one seems to be looking at the FDIC statements issued just about every Friday night. In the last four years about 450 banks have been closed , compared to about 50 for the previous eight. I know I know I know, it’s the Bush legacy. The score for this year of recovery is 50.
