Census office survey scandal grows as inflation stats faked
nypost.com ^ | march 26, 2014 | john crudele

Posted on 03/27/2014 9:44:30 AM PDT by lowbridge

The Census Bureau’s Philadelphia office wasn’t just corrupting the nation’s unemployment rate by fabricating data. It was also filing false information about inflation in this country.

Just how large an effect this fraud was having on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) — and consequently the cost of living adjustments for Social Security recipients and others — is not yet known.

Democrats are Democrats first. Being an American is pretty far down on their list.

This is extremely relevant to the OP, regarding the accuracy of the numbers even if they don’t “cheat”:

Like the IRS scandal, follow this to the top and you will see the pattern in every district.

Jeepers.

The Census was faked?

Is there an honest department at all in this administration?

That would make some great political ads to hammer the demoncraps with...

‘Owebama and his demoncrap supporters falsified inflation numbers to cheat the elderly out of SS increases...details at 11.

Hairy Reed and his demoncrap Senate support this, lets send them home!’

Under Obama the food stamp pay out has increased 30%, while Social Security has increased 2%.

They need to track the rate of loser creation, the Obama demographic.

Pretty much everything that comes out of FedGov these days is faked. Unemployment numbers are faked. Inflation/CPI numbers are faked. Fast and Furious gun running is faked. News stories on the White House are faked and documented with official White House photographs that are also faked. ObamaCare enrollment numbers are faked. No one on the far left seems to understand that dishonesty leads to a loss of legitimacy, and they will lose the willing cooperation of decent people. When all FedGod gets from individuals is what they can compel them to do, freedom will be dead, and FedGov will follow shortly thereafter.

It would seem these stats are faked at the top. I don’t see a field risking jail (and that is the punishment) for a measly $14 an hour.

The Census Bureau’s Philadelphia office
Weren't there a number of Philly voting districts that went 100% for Øbama ... and totaled more votes than there were registered voters?

Yes, in the 2008 election 25 precincts voted 100% for Obama over McCain. Then in 2012, 72 precincts voted 100% for Obama over Romney. The FEC sent agents to one precinct and found that one of the voting machines had already posted 2100 votes entered for Obama in the morning BEFORE the polling place opened to the public.

This has been going on for decades. Numerous Pennsylvania Republican Governors have been unable to do anything about it. I wish there was a way to throw Filthadelphia out of PA

If republicans ever get into power again, I’ll bet the real numbers will suddenly be published. Unemployment will be 20% and inflation will be sky high. Who knows what other bombs will be set to blow up. See what happens when you vote republican?

The Commerce Department seems to have done a cursory review of Buckmon’s shoddy work after he was bagged in 2010.

'Bagged' must be a new word for 'Promoted'.

No need to mention real revenues in the past from manufacturing. Manufacturing won’t be revived without anti-manufacturing and anti-building regulations being repealed on local levels first—”no sale,” if that’s tried from the top, down. Those evil male jobs are gone, you know. Then, there’s the popular social and political favorite: the decades of bipartisan fascism behind the divorce/cohabitation paradigm in preparation for the elite weirdo social regime.

Politics: now morbid entertainment. Little popcorn and viewing here before doing the next hands-on maintenance task outside. Have fun. Enjoy the slide.

That’s why they are so nonchalant about lying now.

Had price increases been properly recorded, the economy (real GDP) would have been shrinking each quarter since early 2007.

These phony numbers help the government tout economic recovery when there has been none.

Unemployment numbers are faked.

We have a population of about 315,000,000

Statics say that we have 204 million employable

We have 92 million who have left the workforce.

204-92 =112 million people working

112,000,000/204,000,000 = 54.9% unemployment rate.

Or it could be just like they say 6.7%

“Unemployment numbers are faked. Inflation/CPI numbers are faked.”

The worst part of it is that this was so obvious, and Obama was still re-elected. Frightening...

We have 92 million who have left the workforce.

I don't agree with that number. Many of those who are neither employed nor looking for work were never in the workforce. They may be career welfare, full-time parents, disabled, or for a number of other reasons outside the job market. A more relevant number is the "civilian labor force participation rate", which shows a 3.2% decrease since the communist took power, or a little less than 8 million people who dropped out of the workforce - in large part because of Obama's incompetence.

You can’t fight the system when the entire system is corrupt and rotten. The PTB keep us arguing and infighting about bs while they plunder and rob us using fuzzy numbers and sophisticated corruption.. The media covers up for connected cronies regardless of the Party.

All those many billions in Ft Knox and Fed Reserve gold have gone unaudited not because it is there. It disappeared like the billions in Iraq.
