Skip to comments.BLS jobs data will be heavy on the BS

Its time for the Bureau of Labor Statistics to own up to the fact that the nations unemployment statistics have been compromised.
Fridays jobs report should come with a big asterisk detailing all the investigations the BLS knows about. Maybe the BLS thinks it cant afford to be that honest.
But I say it cant afford not to be if it wants to maintain the long-term integrity of all its statistics. Ive been telling you for months about the investigations being conducted by the Inspector General at the Census Bureau concerning the falsification of unemployment and inflation data. Probes are also going on at the House Oversight Committee, Congress Joint Economic Committee and, probably, the Philadelphia US Attorneys office.
I do know the BLS is privately expressing lots of concern although it and the Labor Department havent said a word publicly.
It is time for them to do so.
The honest thing would be to warn the public, the financial markets and policy makers. Staying quiet about the investigations is dishonest.

More of Obama on the job training.
The Kenyan cooking the books again, I’m certain.
"The issue is simple: New Yorks cigarette taxes are the highest in the nation. So people are finding ways around this by bringing either untaxed or lightly taxed smokes into the state. And nothing is being done about it."
Old saying...”Statistics Lie and Statisticians are liars”.
Does anyone think that a Republican president would have survivied a persistently high level of unemployment like this for five years running? The media would howling about how Americans can’t find work and would be clamoring for impeachment hearings.
And the rat bastards in the news media are digging in without so much as a raised eyebrow.
Heck. I remember 8 years of non stop moaning with over 2.00 per gallon gasoline. 5 + years over 3.80 and deafening silence from liberals.
He’s a proven Communist Lyin’ King - only a fool would believe anything that comes from his banana republic regime.
