Censusgate: When and
what did Labor know?

New York Post, by John Crudele

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/18/2014 5:12:44 AM

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 I’ve 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 I’m hearing that the US Attorney in

Ah, yes, let the investigations begin; the blue ribbon panels, the super secret, high powered ones and the small committee, top secret ones. Then when something is found to be unacceptable, illegal and outrageous it gets handed off to our hero at the Justice Dept for him to snark and smirk about and brush aside. No one in Congress will do a thing about any of it. They harp about Presidential over reach and act as if there is nothing they can do. WE have a Constitution that has the recipe for what to do with a tyrant if anyone would take their brave pill and just DO IT!!

The assumption when the White House took over the census was that they intended to politicize it so why are they surprised? We are all supposed to be comfortable that Congress is ´investigating´? Are they pursuing this with the same vigor as their inquiries into the IRS scandal? If so, move along, there will never be anything to see here. Just another day of corruption in Washington.

It did not take a rocket scientist to know the labor results (unemployed) numbers were false.

There are plenty of IG´s who are too darn slow to start investigating and don´t do it until it is out in the public domain for some time. The I.G´s are basically worthless.

So let me recap the most pertinent facts regarding our "labor statistics":

1) The Census Bureau (whose base population data is critical to the development of labor statistics) is now under the direct oversight of the White House. Huh?!

2) A significant part of the "labor statistics" aren´t really hard statistics taken from actual employer reports but are in fact extrapolations based on polls taken by individuals whose jobs depend on achieving "goals" set by supervisors. Double Huh?!

3) And just as a final backstop, the very nature of what constitutes "unemployment" was fundamentally changed to exclude those individuals who have stopped looking for work after an extended period of unemployment. Huh?! squared.

I´m sorry, but I don´t even need to investigate when and what Labor knew. It´s already clear that this whole reporting system is rigged and is a complete flaming lie.

Oh come on, the White House took over the census for 3 reasons, none of them legit. First it was a gold mine of election data that could map every household with 2 gay residents living together. Or they could identify the people living on food stamps by race and family size. The second game they played with the census was to turn it into a jobs plan by hiring, training, then firing the census takers. Cycle this program 3 times during the census and you create triple the jobs. The census was a one-time deal. They were already fudging the unemployment data on a weekly basis. The census just gave them an opportunity to confirm the monthly lies with an "actual count" lie.

What the establishment GOP doesn´t understand is that the People see this going on and want to decrease the size of our government by half. The establishment just want to be in charge.

Congress is going to investigate Censusgate? Is this the same crooked Congress that is going give amnesty to illegal criminals when probably sixty something percent of the American public say no!

The fact that people who are trying to come here legally are ignored unless they are a former Muslims with terrorist associations then that is AOK. So much for Congressional investigations.

Of course the Administration is cheating on the unemployment numbers, everything they do is illegal and geared toward destroying the American Republic. These are Marxists you know.

It is said that, “There are liars, damn liars, and statisticians.” The unemployment rate is a statistic that is defined as those who are unemployed, but actively seeking work. Those actively seeking work is determined as those who are receiving unemployment benefits because they meet the criteria for actively seeking work. Those whose benefits have run out or want a job, but have given up looking, are not counted. If these later groups were counted the percentage of unemployed would be higher – 10 percent or more.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

Nothing coming out of the Obamanation communist regime is factual, trustworthy, or for the good of our republic. The social contract has been broken by our "betters" in the government, both Dim and Repub, and therefore the citizens have no civic duty to comply with any of their edicts.

The complicit Republican Party is actively fighting their own base in order to keep their place at the trough. To keep our rights we need to exercise those rights in our every day lives. Do not comply or self identify. As Nancy Reagan urged, "Just say no!"

As noted by other posters here, early on in the regime --- 2009 I believe --- they changed the Census to report directly to the WH. I immediately found that suspicious back then, as also recalled by this Crudele article of last year.
http://nypost.com/2013/11/23/cooked-census-reported-to-obama-and-rahm/

The money graph...
´´Back in 2009 — right before the 2010 census of the nation was taken — there was an announcement that the Obama administration had decided that the Census Bureau would report to senior White House aides.´´

This is no ´´administration´´. This is a thoroughly disgusting state of affairs. This is a calculating, lawless regime whose lawlessness foul stench starts at the head.

Government statistics are known to be unreliable..I recall hearing Alan Greenspan say to a congressional committee, You can´t trust government statistics.

What´s new is the amount and deliberateness of the deception coming from the current administration..it goes well beyond the common defense: "All administrations do it."

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
