    The Great Fraud - Our President

    The Great Fraud

    by
    BRYAN PRESTON

    February 14, 2014

    Barack Obama campaigned promising to be a different kind of man and a different kind of president. He promised to work with the Republicans and include them. He specifically promised not to use executive orders to go around Congress.

    As president, he rammed Obamacare through despite majority opposition against that law. Democrats passed that law during midnight and holiday votes. Obama promised to hold debates about the bill in public, on CSPAN, but instead had it engineered in backroom deals in which payoffs and favors were traded for critical votes.

    He has rewritten that law on the fly 29 times, always with an intent to help himself and his party, not the American people. While giving unions and corporations breaks from Obamacare, ordinary Americans remain subject to the individual mandate. Obama and his party ridicule the idea that corporations are people, but he treats corporations better than he treats people.
    Obama is promising/threatening to sideline Congress for the duration of his presidency. If Congress does not bend to his will, he threatens to go around it and act on his own.

    The Obama administration claimed that 7 million Obamacare enrollees would be the measure of success. When that number proved to be unattainable, they moved the measure down to about 4 million. The administration’s apologists in the media went along with that. The administration has announced that about 3.3 million have enrolled, but even that number is fake: About 20% have not even paid their first premium, and therefore cannot be counted as enrolled.

    Obamacare was sold as a plan to increase access and bring healthcare costs down. Obama promised that families would see premiums decrease by thousands of dollars per year. But so far, Obamacare has resulted in fewer Americans having healthcare now than before — about 6.5 million have lost coverage they had before. It has decreased access by shrinking provider networks. It has destroyed competition by eliminating some plans and replacing them with lesser plans only offered by one company in some areas. By every objective measure, Obamacare is a failure if it was truly intended to bring costs down, increase access and improve overall healthcare in America.

    Obama promised to be inclusive and open and transparent. But from 2010 to 2013, his IRS circled around Americans who disagree with him and abused them. It audited conservatives. It kept conservative groups on the sidelines during the 2012 election, which he narrowly won. Executive branch agencies descended on election integrity activist Catherine Engelbrecht of Texas and harassed her for years.

    At the same time, the Census Bureau reportedly faked unemployment data in the months just before the election. Unemployment figures are always critical in measuring a president’s job performance. Unemployment dipped sharply from August to November 2012.

    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.

    Ironically, it was Labor’s demanding standards that left the door open to manipulation.

    Labor requires Census to achieve a 90 percent success rate on its interviews — meaning it needed to reach 9 out of 10 households targeted and report back on their jobs status.

    Census currently has six regions from which surveys are conducted. The New York and Philadelphia regions, I’m told, had been coming up short of the 90 percent.
    Philadelphia filled the gap with fake interviews.

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

    Buckmon wasn’t the only one. Obama had pulled the Census Bureau under the purview of the White House as one of his first acts as president. The bureau’s longstanding independence from politics was endangered from the beginning of the Obama administration.

    At the same time that unemployment numbers were being faked and the IRS was targeting Obama’s opponents to render them ineffective during the 2012 election, Obama claimed to have put al Qaeda on the run. That claim went up in literal smoke on the night of September 11, 2012, when terrorists struck the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. Obama’s whereabouts and actions that night remain a mystery, but he and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice pushed a fabrication — that the attack was sparked by a protest against an obscure YouTube movie. That lie was designed to create just enough confusion to get past the election, and thanks to CNN’s Candy Crowley’s intervention during the presidential debates, it did.

    Obamacare rolled out disastrously in October 2013. The website that the president was forcing Americans to use to purchase health insurance that was in many cases more expensie than what they had before, and covered less, using shrunken provider networks, did not work. President Obama claimed that he had no idea that Healthcare.gov would fail, that he knew nothing about the implementation of his signature policy. Now evidence has emerged that he met with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius 18 times in the weeks leading up to Healthcare.gov’s rollout. It’s possible that he did not know about the impending disaster, but given his track record, the mostly likely explanation is that he did know and is lying about that now.

    It’s just as likely that the media will never call him out on this, just as it let his other lies slip past — when it wasn’t actively helping him lie, as CNN’s Candy Crowley did.

    The president of our country is a fraud. He and his administration lie with alarming frequency and effect. The media who are supposed to keep him accountable are mostly frauds.

    We live in perilous times for the rule of law.

    Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report

    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.

    Just two years 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 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.

    Ironically, it was Labor’s demanding standards that left the door open to manipulation.

    Labor requires Census to achieve a 90 percent success rate on its interviews — meaning it needed to reach 9 out of 10 households targeted and report back on their jobs status.

    Census currently has six regions from which surveys are conducted. The New York and Philadelphia regions, I’m told, had been coming up short of the 90 percent.

    Philadelphia filled the gap with fake interviews.

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

    Census, under contract from the Labor Department, conducts the household survey used to tabulate the unemployment rate.

    Interviews with some 60,000 household go into each month’s jobless number, which currently stands at 7.3 percent. Since this is considered a scientific poll, each one of the households interviewed represents 5,000 homes in the US.
    Buckmon, it turns out, was a very ambitious employee. He conducted three times as many household interviews as his peers, my source said.

    By making up survey results — and, essentially, creating people out of thin air and giving them jobs — Buckmon’s actions could have lowered the jobless rate.
    Buckmon said he filled out surveys for people he couldn’t reach by phone or who didn’t answer their doors.

    But, Buckmon says, he was never told how to answer the questions about whether these nonexistent people were employed or not, looking for work, or have given up.

    But people who know how the survey works say that simply by creating people and filling out surveys in their name would boost the number of folks reported as employed.

    Census never publicly disclosed the falsification. Nor did it inform Labor that its data was tainted.

    “Yes, absolutely they should have told us,” said a Labor spokesman. “It would be normal procedure to notify us if there is a problem with data collection.”
    Census appears to have looked into only a handful of instances of falsification by Buckmon, although more than a dozen instances were reported, according to internal documents.

    In one document from the probe, Program Coordinator Joal Crosby was ask in 2010, “Why was the suspected … possible data falsification on all (underscored) other survey work for which data falsification was suspected not investigated by the region?”

    On one document seen by The Post, Crosby hand-wrote the answer: “Unable to determine why an investigation was not done for CPS,” or the Current Population Survey — the official name for the unemployment report.
    With regard to the Consumer Expenditure survey, only four instances of falsification were looked into, while 14 were reported.

    I’ve been suspicious of the Census Bureau for a long time.

    During the 2010 Census report — an enormous and costly survey of the entire country that goes on for a full year — I suspected (and wrote in a number of columns) that Census was inexplicably hiring and firing temporary workers.
    I suspected that this turnover of employees was being done purposely to boost the number of new jobs being report each month. (The Labor Department does not use the Census Bureau for its other monthly survey of new jobs — commonly referred to as the Establishment Survey.)

    Last week I offered to give all the information I have, including names, dates and charges to Labor’s inspector general.

    I’m waiting to hear back from Labor.

    I hope the next stop will be Congress, since manipulation of data like this not only gives voters the wrong impression of the economy but also leads lawmakers, the Federal Reserve and companies to make uninformed decisions.
    To cite just one instance, the Fed is targeting the curtailment of its so-called quantitative easing money-printing/bond-buying fiasco to the unemployment rate for which Census provided the false information.

    So falsifying this would, in essence, have dire consequences for the country.

    The Most Embarrassing President of My Lifetime

    Barack Obama is, without question, the most embarrassing president of my lifetime — and that is saying something, since my life so far has encompassed 12 presidencies, some of which have brought a lot of embarrassment to the nation. Even Richard Nixon, with his Watergate scandal, Jimmy Carter, with his malaise, and Bill Clinton, with his lewd behavior in the Oval Office, could not top this president for pure, unadulterated disgrace.
