Were unemployment numbers faked prior to 2012 Obama election?

Jim is discussing this during the first hour of the big radio show. Here are the source reports from John Crudele at the New York Post with commentary.

Making up numbers. Pulling them out of thin air. Faking interviews. The federal government is too damn big. From the Post.

Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report

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. …

Do read the full post. Crudele has reached out to the Department of Labor and offered the inspector general all of the information he’s collected.

Last week I offered to give all the information I have, including names, dates and charges to Labor’s inspector general. I’m waiting to hear back from Labor.

From Sweetness & Light.

Remember all the grief conservatives got back in the fall of 2012 for suggesting this? Even Jack Welch caught hell, too, when he tweeted that something was fishy about the numbers.

Jim’s played the sound bite this morning from Chris Matthews as he berated Jack Welch from suggesting the Obama administration would jack the numbers.

Here is the full Hardball interview with Welch. Vicevich is wondering when Matthews will be apologizing to Welch.

    Obama and the democrats will do anything, say anything and will throw anyone under the bus to maintain power. They will lie, cheat, fabricate and manipulate any data that is helpful to them winning. Winning? is everything; win at any cost.
    Anyone who disagrees either loses his/her job and is derided as part of the “vast right-wing-conspiracy” or is totally marginalized.
    If the facts do not favor the liberals, they just change the facts. If it is proved a fraud later, so what? They’ll just create another crisis. The Chicago Way is the Obama Way.
    We on the right warned of this and many other irregularities in Obama’s campaigns but only received a shrug and rolled eyes. Like we made it up?
    Obama is not a transparent president, he is a paper construct, a living lie. If he says one thing, expect the opposite. He is a fake. A fraud.

    Did the media question the Warren Commission’s report? ? Did they question the Gulf of Tonkin incident?? Since that era, what government statement can be believed?? How often is government data revised?? Do we now have a ‘Ministry of Truth’ rather than news media?

    The whole ?bama administration and the campaign committees that arranged to reelect him are all fakes.? It is the SOP of the regime: lie, lie about the lies, lie about it being the fault of the Republican/Bush, lie when caught.? Just keep lying.
