US unemployment rate hits 14.7%

Unemployment in the US has hit 14.7%, the highest rate since the Depression. This comes as the Labor Department reported a loss of 20.5 million jobs lost last month as the nation locked down against COVID-19. The highest monthly job loss before this was 2 million in 1945. Unemployment was 4.4% in March.

I dont know about you guys, but the New World Order isnt going to be dealt with by passive response, and it's coming. Kennedy himself stated that we are controlled by a Monolithic Conspiracy. The speech is known as President and The Press. Listen to it if you've never, and then make up your own mind. Thats the PoTUS telling the world the Illuminati are real.

It might get lower as you see things reopen. But that's when we want to closely examine reinfection numbers and a increase in cases.

As soon as the economy reopens it will soar like we've never seen before its why dems and even some of the traitours republicans want to keep our economy on lock down. They don't care about grampy and grammy getting sick, they just want to see the economy burn in hopes it will remove Trump from office but like all attempts it will fail. This Pandemic is no diffrent than russia or ukraine gate.

I’ve had numerous people tell me directly that they WANT unemployment because they are making more now than ever. This can’t be the right model to save an economy.

Just for those wanting to know what "economy" means, check out this 22 minute video. I know it's long. It shows how the economy isn't some abstract concept but an actual interconnected network. That network is being destroyed. I don't understand how anyone can be okay with it. And this is just the money. There's so much more. https://youtu.be/Cpvm8ZKfKho

It’s the same story the world over, its temporary until the herd stampede subsides and can only compare with the victories of King Pyrrhus of Epirus
