We know that Obama is personally a liar. Obama has lied to the American people from the day of his initial inauguration when he swore to uphold the Constitution. He has shown consistently that he never had any intention of fulfilling that promise. He has also told the American people big lies and little lies since then. We know representatives of his regime have lied while testifying under oath to the House and the Senate. These representatives would include Holder. We also know that different agencies have given false numbers including unemployment numbers when it would benefit Obama. The most notorious would be the unemployment numbers released just before the election in 2012. Here is the accounting:
Just two months before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time 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 result is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained. Buckmon said in an interview that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.
Here are the reasons we can say with certainty the numbers do not reflect true unemployment.
Anyone who is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job -- if you are so hopelessly out of work that you've stopped looking over the past four weeks -- the Department of Labor doesn't count you as unemployed.
If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 -- maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn -- you're not officially counted as unemployed for the calculation by the Department of Labor.
If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find -- in other words, you are severely underemployed -- the government doesn't count you.
These are the reasons the people do not feel that number that is being touted by the regime, the press, and the Marxist pundits; it is because the number reported is a lie.
