Census 'faked' unemployment to aid Obama re-election
With polls now showing Americansâ€™ widespread belief that President Obamaâ€™s â€śAffordable Care Actâ€ť was passed through fraud, the New York Post reports that just before the November 2012 presidential election, the U.S. Census Bureau â€śfakedâ€ť the nationâ€™s unemployment rate to help Obama win.
A month before Election Day, the governmentâ€™s official unemployment rate surprisingly broke through the psychological 8 percent mark for the first time in nearly four years with a September â€śjobless rateâ€ť of 7.8 percent.
The welcome news was hailed by the Obama administration as proof the presidentâ€™s controversial spending and regulatory policies were healing the troubled economy.
At the time, high-profile skepticism was immediate. Jack Welch, former chairman of General Electric, charged the data was fudged....
There ya go, even from a liberal source acknowledges the fact that the president changed the way unemployment was calculated. I don't know if you can say they cooked the figures but I did predict before it happened that the unemployment rate would make the magic dip below 8% for the election.(which is where WND should go with all the evidence that the election was fraudulent, more voters in democratic areas (for instance) voting for Obama than people LIVED in the area, plus many others)
The cold hard facts remain. In ALL of President Obama's 305 days in office, there has NOT been on ANY SINGLE DAY of his administration more people working than on ANY DAY of the Bush administration. That includes the recession he inherited from Clinton and the economic downturn after 9/11.
Fewer people working yet this administration claims to be creating jobs, rrrigghhhttt.
part of the very last sentence from the source that I used,Did the Census Bureau Really Fake the Jobs Report? , "... the real scandal with the jobs report probably isn't that the statistics are fake. It's that the numbers are growing far, far too slowly."
But, I'll more --or less-- go along with Neil on this one, ""Lies, d****ed lies, and statistics"--probably Mark Twain.
Whether the story is true or not, the fact remains that agencies like the BLS & HHS have an inherent Conflict of Interest. Contrary to what foolish science idolators think, statistics are inherently subjective & thus *will be* manipulated, if not falsified, according to the interest of those preparing them, & of course government employees tend to support the candidate who advocates an greater role for government, & not the one who is serious about cutting government back. Workers in the private sector whose pay depends upon the free market suffer a handicap by comparison.
In like manner, NGOs like the American Cancer Society will emphasize news favorable to their charter.

This isn't news, I suspected that when they released those figures a year ago. The mindless automatrons that make up the majority of this country, and voted for him fell for it , seeing as how critical thinking has become a virtue of times past.
