Of course: Biden wants rent/mortgage forgiveness during Wuhan virus

What the heck, why not? The government wants to spend $100 billion here, proposing $3 TRILLION there. Then we’ve got the $25 TRILLION clock.

Does fiscal responsibility really matter any more?

Apparently not. Creepy Joe Biden wants folks to have their rent and mortgage “forgiven” during the Wuhan virus. Don’t know how that will work out for landlords and banks though. I’m sure they, in turn, would be given some kind of taxpayer “relief.”

HuffPo reports that Biden’s plan includes forgiveness for rent and mortgage during the Wuhan virus. Depending upon which state you live in, that could go on until a vaccine is developed. Or a cure. Or until the demorat governor declares the emergency is over. Take your pick.

Biden said, “There should be rent forgiveness and there should be mortgage forgiveness now in the middle of this crisis. Forgiveness. Not paid later, forgiveness. It’s critically important to people who are in the lower-income strata.”

One missing element from Biden’s statement though: The former vice president’s Democratic campaign didn’t have any details on the proposal.

We don’t need any details. After all, we just have to pass a “forgiveness” bill to find out what is in it.

Democrats kill amendment to bill which would prevent credit discrimination based on politics or religion

Frances Martel reports for Breitbart, that on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, Democrats in the House of Representatives voted against an amendment to a proposed bill that would prevent the powerful Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from forcing private credit scoring companies to evaluate Americans based on political opinions or religious beliefs — to “make use of information related to political opinions, religious expression, or other expression protected by the First Amendment, whether obtained from a social media account of a consumer or other sources.”

The amendment would have been tacked onto Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s (D-MA) Student Borrower Credit Improvement Act, or Comprehensive CREDIT Act of 2020.

House Democrats rejected the amendment with 208 votes. Only 15 Democrats voted in favor of the free speech protections. Some, like Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), took the pusillanimous non-committal way by abstaining.

Republicans warn that without such an amendment, the powerful CFPB would have the legal authority to make nearly any criteria mandatory for a private credit evaluation company to take into consideration, paving the way for a system in which the federal government has the power to assign numerical scores to individuals like Communist China’s social credit system, based on their loyalty to a certain political party, membership in civil society groups that the government approves or disapproves of, or other private behaviors.

In a statement following the House vote, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) warned that if the Senate also passes the bill (Comprehensive CREDIT Act of 2020) without the amendment, the CFPB would now have the power to use any aspect of a person’s life to change their credit score, with significant potential for abuse. McCarthy said:

“In keeping with their theme of handing over more control to the government, Democrats now support giving the CFPB unchecked authority on credit score modeling, without any built-in measure to stop potential abuse of power or violation of our Constitutional rights. There is a terrifying parallel to the practices of China’s communist regime, which seeks to control the actions of their population with a social credit score. This kind of oppressive practice is antithetical to American freedoms and ideals.”

China’s new “social credit system” bans citizens from key social services like public transportation if they lose too many points behaving in a way disapproved by the Communist Party. China has begun exporting this system, along with its surveillance technology, to countries in the Western Hemisphere like Venezuela, Ecuador, and Bolivia.

See “Totalitarianism: China will keep ‘social credit’ score on each citizen for reward/punishment

Democratic 2020 presidential candidates have posited a point system like China’s “social credit” for evaluating good citizenship. Andrew Yang calls his “modern time banking”. He said on his website: “Volunteer activity and community engagement would be tracked by an app and seeded, initially, by the government. After that, local administrators would oversee the program.”

Created in 2011 to protect Americans from economic malfeasance in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) supposedly is responsible for consumer protection in the financial sector. Designed by Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA), CFPB’s jurisdiction is vast in scope, including banks, credit unions, securities firms, payday lenders, mortgage-servicing operations, foreclosure relief services, debt collectors and other financial companies.

Though an agency of the executive branch of the federal government, CFPB does not answer to the President, making it unaccountable to anyone but its director, 45-year-old Kathy Kraninger — a Republican and a Trump administration appointee. The President of the United States has only limited oversight over CFPB through a narrow list of reasons to remove a director.

CFPB has faced repeated accusations of abuse of power, particularly under its founding director Richard Cordray, an Obama appointee. In perhaps the most absurd example of overreach, the CFPB attempted in 2015 to punish a land development company for not maintaining roads in Tennessee at the standard the Bureau deemed appropriate.

The constitutionality of giving an unelected body such as the CFPB the power to impose its demands on private individuals and corporations has been the subject of extensive debate and unsuccessful lawsuits. Last October, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to the constitutionality of the CFPB.

On the same day as the House Democrats’ defeat of the free speech-protecting amendment, Elizabeth Warren launched a campaign against “disinformation,” a word the Chinese Communist Party often uses to censor speech. She tweeted:

Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump must be prepared to take on the full array of disinformation that foreign actors and people in and around his campaign will use to divide Democrats, suppress Democratic votes, and erode the standing of the Democratic nominee. Campaigns and tech companies can take a number of steps to slow the spread of misinformation right now. And as president, I’ll take a series of actions to further address the spread of disinformation.

Warren also vowed that “when” elected President, she would not only overturn everything President Trump has achieved, she would hunt down and punish Trump administration officials and functionaries.

The Democrats’ Existential Imperative for (at least theoretical) Impeachment

Cross-linked from TrevorLoudon.com

Impeach President Trump for Russian collusion; for emoluments; for obstruction of justice. Now for Ukraine (and Australia and China and then (?). Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats and Deep Staters’ impeachment jihad could be viewed as obsessed, crazy – perhaps even comedic, as they (and Adam Schiff in particular) increasingly resemble Wile E. Coyote futilely chasing the Road Runner.

But even crazy and obsessed people can be rational in their machinations. What if the Deep State swamp crocodiles fully recognize that it is unlikely that they’ll succeed in removing President Trump from office through impeachment, yet still persist? Is there a method to their madness? Yes.

True, they desperately want to take out President Trump, and dare not rely upon the electoral process plus whatever voter fraud they can muster to accomplish that for them. So impeachment is their offensive element, and remains their best-case scenario. Still, after Mueller belly-flopped, they must have finally realized (if not before) that a successful impeachment and removal from office is highly unlikely, if not impossible.

But there is also a defensive element. They have to surmise that Trump’s declassifications, and (let us pray) DOJ indictments will occur between the release of the Inspector General’s report and the 2020 election. So they also require a defensive strategy well before the election. The Democrats can, and are, simultaneously playing both offense and defense.

Are We Being “Auto-Enrolled” into the Mark of the Beast?

Revelation 13:14 – 13:18

14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

This piece does not aim to provide certainty of conclusion(s), but food for thought.  Over time, as one observes seemingly unrelated or spontaneous developments, a pattern can become discernable.  This writer is “discerning” that we may slowly be being corralled into a “Mark of the Beast” regime – not necessarily by force, as many assume – but through a form of “auto-enrollment” by means of that corralling. Many have opined that the “Mark” will manifest itself in the form of microchips implanted underneath the skin – whether voluntarily using deception, or by force – there’s even a movie about this titled Rumors of Wars. And that may well occur.  But …

Pancho Beto wants to force banks and credit card companies to stop enabling the sale of “weapons of war”

Fortunately this guy has no shot of becoming our president.

Pancho Beto was on a tweet storm yesterday:

“Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”

“Banks and credit card companies must: Refuse to take part in the sale of assault weapons. Stop processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks. Stop doing business with gun & ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons.

“If enough of us make our voices heard now, we will force banks and credit card companies to act. Add your name to this petition we’re sending Visa, Mastercard, and the big banks”

And these people call President Trump the fascist.

Famous former con-artist says never use debit card!

Identity theft is the deliberate use of someone else’s identity (e.g., name, address, Social Security number, bank accounts) to get money and credit, obtain employment, steal property, falsify educational and other credentials, access healthcare and more.

Frank Abagnale is a former con-artist and professional impostor whose memoir, Catch Me If You Can, was made into a movie with the same title starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Abagnale lectures at the FBI’s Academy and field offices, and is one of the world’s most respected authorities on the subjects of fraud, forgery and cyber security.

In an article for CNBC (via MSN) — an adaped excerpt from his new book Scam Me If You Can — Abagnale warns us to NEVER ever use debit cards. Below are excerpts from the CNBC essay:

Every year, millions of American consumers — nearly 7% of the population — are victims of scams and fraud. In 2017, the number of fraud victims in the US reached 16.7 million, with $16.8 billion lost.

For more than 45 years, I’ve worked with, advised and consulted with the FBI and hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world to help them in their fight against fraud.

But my expertise began more than 50 years ago, in an unusual way: I was one of the world’s most famous con artists. While I’m ashamed of what I did as a young man — cheating, stealing and, along the way, deceiving and hurting people — I was grateful for the opportunity to turn myself around….

In 2017, during talk I gave at Google, a young man posed a question that I’m often asked: “Given all the advancements in computing and technology, isn’t it harder for today’s criminals to steal your identity than it was back in the 1960s?”

The answer, I told him, is no: It’s not harder. In fact, it’s about 4,000 times easier today than it was then….

[C]on artists are very good at seeking and finding information. With today’s technology, all a thief has to do is go online, give a check-printing service your name and account number, have the checks sent to a post office box and voilà — there goes the contents of your checking account….

Want to avoid identity theft? Never, ever use a debit card. I don’t own one. I never have and I never will. I don’t recommend them to anyone — not my family, not my friends, not you.

As I said at the Google talk, a debit card is certainly and truly the worst financial tool ever given to the American consumer. Why? It’s simple: Every time you use one, you put your money and your bank account at risk.

Instead, use a credit card. I use one for practically all of my purchases, even when I’m traveling abroad. With credit cards, federal law limits my liability if there’s an unauthorized use of my card.

When I use a credit card, I’m spending the credit card company’s money every day until I pay my bill at the end of the month. Meanwhile, my money is earning interest in a bank account.

If there’s a large data breach (and you know that there will be) and a criminal does somehow get my credit card number and charges $1 million on it, I’m protected and my credit card company will cancel the card and send a new one within the next couple of days.

I won’t be responsible for any purchases made. If the same thing happens and the criminals get my debit card information, however, I could lose the money in my bank account and have a difficult and lengthy time recovering it.

Also, keep your check-writing to a minimum and be vigilant about examining your bank statements frequently.

The Corporate Left: Bank of America severs ties to migrant detention centers; GoFundMe raises $ for abortion

The Left politicize everything — banking, cookies (Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy), media, movies and TV, National Geographic, shaving (Gillette), sports, Walmart.

In America today, privately-owned businesses are no longer motivated by profit and service. Instead, businesses have become an arm of the Democrat Party by discriminating against conservatives and promoting the Left’s agenda.

Bank of America and GoFundMe are the latest examples.

Washington Examiner reports that on June 26, 2019, Bank of America announced they will no longer do business with companies who are involved in the operation of migrant detention centers.

Referring to clients who operate migrant detention centers, a BofA representative said that while they appreciated the “steps they have taken to properly execute their contractual and humanitarian responsibilities . . . in recognition of the concerns of our employees and stakeholders in the communities we serve, it is our intention to exit these relationships.”

One of the companies is Caliburn, which runs the Homestead center in Florida under a U.S. government contract, and to which Bank of America had provided a $380 million loan. Homestead is targeted by Demonrats running for president, including Bill de Blasio, Elizabeth Warren, and Eric Swalwell, who call the center a “prison”.

Then there is the crowd-funding website, GoFundMe.

Washington Free Beacon reports, June 26, 2019, that GoFuneMe has launched an ambitious campaign to raise $500,000 to “fight back” against limits on late-term abortion. 37.5% of the money raised will go to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider; 20% to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, a dark money group that pays for political and lobbying operations; 17.5% will go to the American Civil Liberties Union; and the remaining 25% to other abortion organizations.

Planned Parenthood CEO and president Leana Wen said laws that limit the practice based upon an unborn child’s heartbeat or ability to feel pain are “dangerous attacks” on Americans.

GoFundMe CEO Rob Solomon said in a press release: “Reproductive rights are human rights, and GoFundMe is proud to join this movement and work alongside these organizations fighting to protect women all across the country.”

So killing unborn and just-born humans are now a “human right”.

God help us.

Americans’ life savings disappear from Mexican Monex bank

Monex Casa del Bolsa, aka Holding Monex, is a Mexican financial institution founded in 1985 which is one of the world’s largest providers of commercial foreign exchange.

On its website, Monex says it engages in both corporate and private banking, and boasts that it is “an institution formed by leading companies in financial and payment businesses, that provide services and specialized products in the national and international market in an innovative manner and with the highest ethical and quality standards.

With $5.2 billion in assets and operations in the U.S., Monex Casa del Bolsa also provides banking services to foreigners visiting or doing business in Mexico, as well as many American expatriots living in Mexico.  Mostly retirees, they have to navigate a society with fewer legal and financial protections than they’d get in the U.S.

Those Americans, however, recently discovered that the money in their Monex bank accounts has disappeared.

David Welch reports for Bloomberg, May 24, 2019, that “Americans say money they had at Monex is gone and the bank isn’t helping them.”

Among those Americans are Kathy and Jim Machir, two of some 10,000 Americans who’d moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Last December, the Machirs called Marcela Zavala Taylor, their Monex banker of 9  years, to get cash for contractors building their retirement home in San Miguel de Allende, San Miguel, a city of 69,000 about 500 miles south of McAllen, Texas. But Zavala didn’t return calls, and the Machirs discovered that their nest egg was gone. Kathy Machir says: “When they told us we had 6 pesos [32¢] in our accounts, I just felt sick to my stomach. Since then, they have not dealt with us in good faith.”

Zavala is local royalty: daughter of former Mayor Manuel Zavala and his Texas-born wife, Peggy Taylor, an agent for Christie’s International Real Estate. Zavala has worked for Monex about 20 years, and became San Miguel’s banker of choice by winning over expats with promises of fat returns on accounts she claimed were dollar-denominated and immune to the peso’s fluctuations.

In early January, Monex officials told the Machirs and other San Miguel expatriates that about $40 million was missing from as many as 158 accounts, many belonging to English-speaking Americans.

A dozen people interviewed by Bloomberg News say that bank statements Zavala sent them purporting to show full accounts were apparently falsified. Most say the bank has told them little since they filed complaints, and some say Monex tried to settle for far less than the balances owed.

Kevin Carr, founder of financial technology firm Finiden in Washington, D.C., and formerly the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s primary representative in Mexico, says fraud is becoming more common. According to Condusef, Mexico’s consumer protection agency, last year there were 7.3 million complaints of fraud involving 18.9 billion pesos, about $1 billion — more than double the number of claims in 2014. Carr says “Mexican authorities try to prosecute these cases but often aren’t successful.

Monex spokeswoman Eva Gutierrez said in a press release last Thursday that the bank is working with clients and has settled with 70%. Some clients interviewed by Bloomberg News who settled for reimbursement say Monex required them to file charges with the Procuraduria General de Justicia, the equivalent of an Attorney General’s Office, in Mexico City, where the bank is headquartered, and to name Zavala.

Monex said in a statement that it’s looking into accusations against Zavala: “Legal action is continuing in the case, and details cannot be disclosed so as not to hinder the investigation.” But Zavala hasn’t been charged, and declined to comment: “By instruction of my lawyers I cannot say anything. Goodbye.” Zavala’s mother claims her daughter is taking the fall.

Other Americans and foreigners whose Monex bank accounts were emptied include:

  • Kenneth Karger, a retired dentist in Fort Worth with property in Mexico, says he stopped getting full statements from Monex after last June. Later, Karger went through statements he retrieved from Monex and found unauthorized withdrawals and wire transfers. In all, Monex owes him about $400,000. A notarized letter that Karger’s attorney sent to top Monex executives on April 15 lists 12 allegations of fraud, including transferring money to people whom the depositors didn’t know, making unauthorized investments, and changing account login information.
  • Howard Haynes, 83, moved to San Miguel 22 years ago from Kansas City, Mo. After Zavala stopped returning his calls in December, Monex told Haynes his account, which Zavala had said held a substantial sum, had less than $13,000. Haynes says almost all of his money were transferred — without his authorization — to people he didn’t know, to a new Monex account. Then the money disappeared. Monex says it owes him only the money currently in the account.
  • Alysann Posner, a former vice president of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange who lives in San Miguel, says she had trouble getting timely statements from Monex since she opened her account four years ago. On Dec. 18 she tried to transfer her funds to another bank, but was told the account and that of her 86-year-old mother were reduced to almost nothing. Monex has offered her about 60% of what she believes she is owed and she’s suing Monex in Mexican courts.
  • Cory Gray, 86, says she opened a Monex account six years ago and recently had a tough time getting regular statements. She last heard from Zavala on Dec. 18 and was later told by Monex that she has next to nothing in her account. Monex offered her 70¢ on the dollar. She took it, afraid that fighting Monex would leave her with nothing.
  • Bruce Brown, a retired sound engineer from Australia, says he got his full $250,000 back after filing a complaint against Zavala with the Procuraduria General de Justicia. But after Brown got his check, a Monex representative called, said the bank had overpaid, and asked for $50,000. “I told them to shove it,” Brown says.

Chase Bank denies service to conservatives & Trump supporters

Privately-owned businesses — including banks — have become politicized, adopting the Left’s gun-control agenda. See:

Now, Chase Bank is going after conservatives and Trump supporters by closing their accounts.

Chase Bank is one of the Big Four banks in the United States, with more than 5,100 branches and 16,000 ATMs. (The other three big banks are Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo.)

Chase Bank was known as Chase Manhattan Bank until 2000 when it merged with J.P. Morgan & Co., the multinational banking and financial services holding company. Headquartered in Manhattan, NYC, Chase Bank is the consumer and commercial banking subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co.

(1) Martina Markova

Martina Markova is a conservative commentator, performance artist, creator of the Lady Alchemy graphic novel, and a Trump supporter.

In January 2019, Markova received a letter from Chase Bank, dated January 24, 2019, stating that “After a recent review of your account, we have decided to end our relationship with you.” Below is a screenshot of the letter:

Markota told Big League Politics that the account shut down by Chase Bank was associated with her IndieGoGo campaign for the Lady Alchemy graphic novel which raised over $34,000:

“I received a letter saying that the bank is going to end its relationship with me and I didn’t know why I called them and they said that they can’t tell me why they are shutting it down. They refuse to tell me and when I complained about it they said that they have the right to close my account without telling me why. When I saw other right wingers/conservatives getting their Chase accounts closed I was then convinced that it was political. I was concerned over my IndieGoGo campaign. Luckily, IndieGoGo will allow me to change banks, but in the meantime I have to transfer lots of funds and sort out all the new information. You can still contribute to my IndieGoGo campaign.”

(2) Enrique Tarrio

Enrique Tarrio, who is Cuban-black, is the chairman of a fraternal organization called Proud Boys, which is slimed by Wikipedia as “a far-right neo-fascist organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence.” This is how Proud Boys describes itself:

The Proud Boys are a men’s organization founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes. McInnes has described the Proud Boys as a pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world; aka Western Chauvinists.

Proud Boys‘ values center on the following tenets:

Minimal Government
Maximum Freedom
Anti-Political Correctness
Anti-Drug War
Closed Borders
Anti-Racial Guilt
Anti-Racism
Pro-Free Speech (1st Amendment)
Pro-Gun Rights (2nd Amendment)
Glorifying the Entrepreneur
Venerating the Housewife
Reinstating a Spirit of Western Chauvinism

…We do not discriminate based upon race or sexual orientation/preference…. We have an international reach, with members spanning the globe.

As reported by Big Leaque Politics, Tarrio received a letter from Chase Bank, dated February 4, 2019, that “After careful consideration, we have determined that we can no longer support your banking account(s) and will be closing it on April 01, 2019.” Below is a screenshot of the letter:

The letter came days after Chase Bank’s payment processor, Chase Paymentech, de-platformed Tarrio on 1776.shop — a website he runs that allows groups and charities to sell merchandise and raise money for causes. The website is most known for selling the “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” shirts which Stone was wearing during the late-night arrest at his home.

(3) Joe Biggs

Joe Biggs is an Iraq war veteran, former Infowars reporter, and high-profile supporter of President Trump.

In June 2016, Biggs reported for Infowars that the Secret Service was the source of leaks on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s deteriorating health. For a video of why Biggs left Infowars, click here.

Last week, Biggs discovered Chase Bank suspended his account without any explanation. He contacted his local bank office and was told they cannot tell him why he was suspended. After Biggs’s tweet about Chase Bank closing his account went viral, employees from Chase contacted him and restored his account.

Biggs is calling for a boycott of Chase Bank due to their targeted closures of the accounts of independent media personalities, and encouraged people to tweet the hashtag #DumpChase.

(4) Laura Loomer

The latest political target of Chase Bank is Laura Loomer, a conservative independent journalist and political activist.

Last January, Loomer led a protest in front of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)’s mansion in Napa Valley, CA. Loomer brought a group of illegal immigrants from Guatemala and Mexico, and set up a “sanctuary camp” on Pelosi’s lawn, with photos of Americans — including Kate Steinle — who were killed by illegal aliens. Police were called, and evicted, i.e., deported, the group of illegals.

Laura Loomer’s sanctuary camp at Nancy Pelosi’s Napa Valley home

Gateway Pundit reports, February 19, 2019:

Conservative activist Laura Loomer was already banned from Twitter months ago. This was after Laura attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar on her own record and beliefs. A CAIR activist was reportedly behind the silencing of Laura Loomer.

In January Laura Loomer was banned by PayPal….

And today Laura Loomer was blocked from her Chase Bank app.

Here’s a pic of Loomer’s Chase Bank app.:

Loomer told Gateway Pundit:

“Chase Bank targeting a Jewish Conservative activist and journalist is a disgusting attack on our rights as Americans. First they marginalized a colored man for his support of President Donald Trump. Then they targeted combat veteran Joe Biggs. Now they have suspended my access to the Chase app which I used to manage my bills. These censorship tactics that are being carried out by left leaning executives like Jamie Dimon, Jack Dorsey, and Mark Zuckerberg are disgusting and depraved. I’m the target today. Tomorrow, it could be any one of you who dares to have a conservative opinion or idea. These Nazi like censorship tactics send a clear message that supporting Donald Trump can bankrupt, silence, and marginalize people who ought to be considered a protected class. I’m sick to my stomach knowing that I am being targeted by billionaires who have now suspended my access to my online banking via the Chase App, and I am contemplating ways to fight back. The suspension of my chase app comes just weeks after I was banned by PayPal. Why am I being treated like a terrorist in my own country? Is it now a crime in America to be a supporter of President Donald Trump? It sure feels like it.”

There is a petition at Change.org to restore Laura Loomer’s Paypal account.

Meanwhile, there is only silence from Republican leaders, as banks and tech giants continue to ban, de-platform and demonetize conservative voices.

MAGA: Unemployment rates falls to 3.7%, a 49-year low

From NY Post: The unemployment rate sank to 3.7 percent in September — a 49-year low — despite job growth that slowed sharply last month as Hurricane Florence depressed restaurant and retail payrolls, the feds said Friday.

The Labor Department’s closely watched monthly employment report also showed a steady rise in wages, suggesting moderate inflation pressures, which could ease concerns about the economy overheating and keep the Federal Reserve on a path of gradual interest rate increases.

President Trump hailed the low unemployment rate in a Twitter post. “Just out: 3.7% Unemployment is the lowest number since 1969!” he wrote.

Economists also welcomed the news. “The acceleration in job gains this year is extraordinary in an environment where firms are having great difficulty finding qualified candidates,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities.

Nonfarm payrolls increased by 134,000 jobs last month, the fewest in a year, as the retail and leisure and hospitality sectors shed employment. But data for July and August were revised to show 87,000 more jobs added than previously reported.

The economy needs to create roughly 120,000 jobs per month to keep up with growth in the working-age population. “The weaker gain in payrolls in September may partly reflect some hit from Hurricane Florence,” said Michael Pearce, senior economist at Capital Economics in New York.

“There is little in this report to stop the Fed continuing to raise interest rates gradually.”

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast payrolls increasing by 185,000 jobs in September and the unemployment rate falling one-tenth of a percentage point to 3.8 percent.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said on Tuesday that the economy’s outlook was “remarkably positive” and he believed it was on the cusp of a “historically rare” era of ultra-low unemployment and tame inflation.

The US central bank raised rates last week for the third time this year and removed the reference in its post-meeting statement to monetary policy remaining “accommodative.”

The Labor Department said it was possible that Hurricane Florence, which lashed South and North Carolina in mid-September, could have affected employment in some industries. It said it was impossible to quantify the net effect on employment.
