NY Post, former GE CEO Jack Welch all point to Obama administration ‘faking’ unemployment numbers

Leading up to the 2012 election, the Obama administration may have “faked” or manipulated unemployment data.

President Obama address on fiscal cliff dealThe NY Post reports that incredible decline in unemployment from August to September (8.1 to 7.8) were manipulated according to their source.

“…the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it,” the article states noting that one employee was caught “fabricating data” two years prior to the election.

The “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 huge 3 tenths drop drew notice from former GE head Jack Welch, who was attacked after tweeting: “Unbelievable jobs numbers,” Welch said in an Oct. 5 tweet, “these Chicago guys will do anything…can’t debate so change numbers.”

He was branded an “unemployment-rate truther” by the press, who apparently never questioned the data.

Julius Buckmon, told the Post in an interview that he “faked” the numbers at the direction of his supervisors. This was done by “faking interviews” in the New York and Philadelphia region.

“It was a phone conversation — I forget the exact words — but it was, ‘Go ahead and fabricate it’ to make it what it was,” he said.

Buckmon conducted three times the number of “fake” interviews as needed and therefore, as the article states, “Buckmon’s actions could have lowered the jobless rate.”

Additionally, the Census Bureau never disclosed this information and apparently never informed the Labor Department of the manipulated data.

“Yes, absolutely they should have told us,” a Labor spokesman told the Post. “It would be normal procedure to notify us if there is a problem with data collection.”

There are reportedly at least a dozen separate reports of falsified data. Buckmon’s “not the only one,” the Post’s anonymous source said.

    So can we FINALLY get a true number of unemployment in the country today? Is there any way to END the faked reports and lies we’ve been getting from this administration? What’s next to fall? the fake floor of our economy boosted by QE? This is truly the most corrupt administration in the history of our country.
