And as with most of this shit from Obama’s team, it just happened to come about right before the 2012 election! In this case it looks like the unemployment data was manipulated and continues to be manipulated to prevent people from seeing how bad things are:
In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington. The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated. And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.
Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy. And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today. “He’s not the only one,” said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.
The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census. Ironically, it was Labor’s demanding standards that left the door open to manipulation.
Labor requires Census to achieve a 90 percent success rate on its interviews — meaning it needed to reach 9 out of 10 households targeted and report back on their jobs status. Census currently has six regions from which surveys are conducted. The New York and Philadelphia regions, I’m told, had been coming up short of the 90 percent. Philadelphia filled the gap with fake interviews.
The sad thing is that I suspected this was going on already and am not even surprised. There are a lot of numbers that seemed to skew in favor of this administration and the demcorats before the 2012 election and continue to be skewed to help them pretend things are not as bad even today. My bet is that there will be even more of this before the 2014 election.
With these people it is all about lies and manipulation of the truth. For our own good, of course. You would think findings like this would have the media in a furor and reporting how our government was out of control. But the sad fact is that these people are doing the dirty for the liars. Why worry anyway? They are going to make beggars and paupers of us all so we can use the lies.
