Posted on 11/18/2013 5:18:51 PM PST by NYRepublican72
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.

Informed voters knew all of this.
Problem is most of the electorate is ill informed, especially low information Obama voters.
Too bad there’s no recall at the federal level.
I got news for Crudele - the numbers are still being faked.
The phoney baloney jobs numbers again..
At least they now have a guy on the record.
However, what difference does it make? Hillary will tell you. The Republicants in Congress won’t even care.
Doesn’t matter now, the job is done. These minor minions will pay the price, while their Democrat betters walk away scott-free, and their superiors get promoted for an election job well-done.
It’s a shame America no longer has a “free” press”. That is the only reason they get by with it.
I recall Rahm saying that the census could be biased and politicized, fer shur, when asked if moving authority for the census to the White House would change anything.
That was the first time the census was run out of the WH.
“Informed voters knew all of this”
But stayed home to protest Romney
If Romney couldn’t lie good enough to attract their votes, then it’s not their fault. Nobody is owed your vote, they have to earn it.
.... Yup ..... Howz that workin' out for everybody? The country got destroyed .... but By Gumm ..... they sure got to make their point!
While Traitorobama was lying through his teeth that “If you like your health plan/doctor/insurance you can keep your health plan/doctor/insurance. Period,” he was winking to other Demonrats and saying, “If I don’t like the Census jobs data, you can make up the Census jobs data... Period!”
“If Romney couldnt lie good enough to attract their votes, then its not their fault. Nobody is owed your vote, they have to earn it.”
When it comes down to voting for socialism versus capitalism, I can’t understand any conservative staying home.
Another point will have to be made if a liberal is the GOP candidate.
Go back to September and October 2012 and there are all the usual suspects in the MSM claiming that the misreporting was a baseless conspiracy.
Add on to that that California failed to properly report initial jobless claims during the entire Septmeber to October 2012 run up to the election, skewing that BLS measure also.
california initial jobless claims glitches 2012
The 2012 election was nothing but a fraud based on lies and misinformation. Everyone involved in this should be in jail.
.... Exactly! .... Therefore some of us have earned the right to complain and protest while others who are responsible for all of this ..... should stay silent and enjoy the fruits of their protest.
“When the GOP runs a conservative candidate, conservatives won’t stay home.”
I guess all the conservatives stayed home during the primaries too?
Tyranical little sucker, aintcha? Good thing you don't get to make those rules.
As for those that are responsible, that would be the GOP-E who cheated and lied to get their liberal candidate nominated.
Conservatives don't have much of a chance when the liberal GOP-E won't close primaries. They LIKE open primaries where Dems can vote for their candidate.
.... Exactly .... the GOP never learns from their mistakes. That is why another Socialist Democrat will be the next president of the United States .... to finish off the winning plan that Lennin and Marx started all those years ago. The history books will not be kind to the GOP.
Who, exactly, was running with pro-capitalism pro-free enterprise rhetoric and a track record to back it up?
By the time the conservative states got to vote in the primary the story had been told and it was pretty much a done deal.
Does anyone detect a pattern here?
Everyone knows it's coming. Why do you think there is such an expansion of 'preppers'? Do you honestly believe Romney lost because people stayed home? He lost because the election was stolen. When every UNITED STATES CITIZEN has only a single vote, and each vote is counted once, and ONLY once, nation wide, then, perhaps, we can start to restore this country.
The GOPe made sure enough of the primaries were "open" that the crossover democrats could select their opponent.
There are a lot of burning pants around.
Romney saatys now—not what he said during the race, mind you—that he’d have made the states implement Obamacare at the state level.
Right about nogw I’d take my chances with this administration of our getting rid of Obamacare altogether. Romney would probably have ended up giving us more healthcare oppression in the long run.
The corrupt MSM knew too, and they were fully complicit not raising a peep because they loved Obama and sought to keep their thumb on the electoral scale.
Gee, I just can’t imagine who could have asked them to do this. Betcha it’s the same bunch who stuffed the ballot boxes, ya think?
Unfortunately, most of Obama’s voters are LIVs.
So who is going to JAIL !!!!! (Nobody, so why is “another” expose’ even news?) The real news will be when they put handcuffs on the liars and put them away, what we have here is just more conservative white noise. Maybe dead End Darrel should propose a hearing...that ‘ll fix ‘em! Is “news” like this supposed to make us feel good? I’m tired of the left ‘s laughing at us.
I rarely agree with you. This time, YOU'VE NAILED IT.
In Romney's world of venture capitalism, lying with the numbers will get you bankruptcy and/or jail time. Plus, if you look at Romney's family, lying was probably a very rare event.
Romney never understood big time politics in Washington DC. My favorite DC joke is "what is a gaffe?" Ans: "It is when a politician accidently tells the truth." Romney just was not a good liar.
Why isn’t this a Drudge Siren? If this were Bush it would be the lead story. Dan Rather would come out of retirement for it. This fits perfectly with the unavoidable wake up call the average american is now getting that this administration is the utterly dishonest and his policies amount to a fat piece of disaster.
Dunno what you find so unbelievable, I can believe all of it.
And the Republicans will probably ignore this. Losers.
I really tire of hearing that falsehood.
Please research the numbers yourself and become more intelligent about the subject.
The only thing that surprised me about their ‘fun with numbers’ was that they didn’t end up making the number even lower.
I fully expected them to say it was down to 6.9 just to get it under the 7 point number prior to the election.
Remember, the census was moved from Commerce to the White House in 2010.
Even if it true, so what? People are free not to vote. People are free to think both candidates are not worth their vote. Believe me, they weren’t.
More people voted for the R candidate when Romney ran (2012) than when McCain ran. The facts (numbers) don’t bear out the false narrative that conservatives stayed home to protest anything. More votes than the last presidential election (2008) would tend to belie the idea as presented.
As an aside, Obama’s numbers went down from the 2008 election (when he ran against McCain).
people should be in jail
