Skip to comments.Censusgate: When and what did Labor know?
Posted on 02/19/2014 5:25:55 AM PST by afraidfortherepublic
A tipster tried to warn the Labor Department in 2011 that its unemployment statistics were being fabricated by the people at the Census Bureau who compile the data.
But the warning was either missed or ignored by Labor.
That allegedly allowed the data falsification to go on for years.
As Ive been telling you, the falsification is now the subject of a number of investigations, including one by the House Oversight Committee and Congress Joint Economic Committee.
Also investigating is the Office of the Inspector General at the Commerce Department, which is in charge of Census. And Im hearing that the US Attorney in the Philadelphia region is also poking around the matter, although a spokeswoman wouldnt confirm that.
And, of course, I am also investigating. Im waiting for the Commerce Department to comply with my Freedom of Information Act request for e-mails and text messages between people in the Philadelphia Census office.
So far, all Ive heard is that the FOIA request is being worked on.
At the core of all these investigations is solid evidence that at least one surveyor a guy named Julius Buckmon, working out of the Philadelphia Census office but polling in Washington, DC submitted fake household surveys that were used in compiling the Labor Departments unemployment rate.

The community activists at the census bureau were doing what community activists do.
It seems that real corruption is common through out gov. as opposed to just plain lazy.
Now for the BIG question: what was the Chi/mob doing when they took over the US treasury?
CONNECTING THE DOTS: Obama's stranglehold on Treasury via COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role
Soon as they occupied the WH, the Chicago con artists placed Obama's COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (and the IRS).
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.
When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials.

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD shortly after quitting his powerful WH job as Obama's COS, Rahm held a presser declaring he "just remembered" he really, Really wanted to be Mayor of Chicago.
Then Rahm announced he had magically "raised" $10 million for his campaign in "just a matter of weeks." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down).
Ya gotta wonder how much Wall Street Rahm wired offshore when Obama put him in charge of the entire US Treasury.
Falsifying official govt documents incurs several felonies----and could also involve forgery.
The Obama Crime Family is hard at work on multiple front. The long arm of the law is unlikely to do anything in the service of justice given that one of Obama’s top Capo has firm control of our Federal justice system. Corruption works best when it is widespread and governed from the top.
And why did the GOPe let them get away with it? Because they have no spine.
And why did the GOPe let them get away with it? Because they are complicit and share in the proceeds.
