In the run-up to the 2012 elections, job numbers improved by a suspicious amount. Some people were skeptical about whether the numbers were honestly compiled including, most notably, former GE CEO Jack Welch.
Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers
– Jack Welch (@jack_welch) October 5, 2012
Welch caught a lot of flack for his skepticism, but it turns out that he was spot-on..
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.
…And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee – that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today.
“He’s not the only one,” said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.
The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.
This was fraud perpetrated by the Obama Administration that may have had an impact on the 2012 election. Furthermore, as we saw in the IRS’s persecution of the Tea Party, we have what is supposed to be a neutral government agency whose role was corrupted for political reasons. Furthermore, it’s entirely possible that these numbers are still being manipulated to make the jobless rate look better than it really happens to be.
Of course, Obama will say that he had no idea this fraud was going on, which is his standard response every time his crooked administration willfully breaks the law. At this point, we really need a special prosecutor to investigate all the scandals of the Obama Administration, but if that’s not doable, the House needs to get to the bottom of this issue. If need be, the House should subpoena everyone in the White House until it starts getting some answers.
