This has been out there for a few days, and I am late to the story. In truth, it reveals what we can expect if we have four more years of this. Chicago methods, or closer to Stalinist methods to silence us. If you do not toe the party line, the government will discredit you and literally sue you and put you out of business. Most do not have millions to defend themselves in court. Recall Gibson Guitar? Just the beginning folks. Two posts today, a great video below this post to encourage our spirit. “Ronald Reagan warned us about Obama”.
Here we go:
“What do you think of the Obama Administration threatening the Gallup Organization for essentially issuing a veiled warning about the tinkering of the unemployment numbers?” Sodahead, August 24, 2012.
Twice this summer, Gallup has published a report calling into question discrepancies between its unadjusted research and what is being tallied in the adjusted O-fficial statistics. In reporting in its latest jobless numbers — in a commentary titled August Unemployment Not Looking Good — Gallup noted (emphases added):
Regardless, barring heroic adjustments or a sharp change in direction, Gallup data suggest the seasonally adjusted U.S. unemployment rate for August will increase — possibly substantially — when announced in early September.
In other words, Gallup said the only way unemployment numbers don’t go up next month is if someone in Obamaland puts a finger on the scale.
Within days of the Gallup Organization issuing, essentially, a veiled warning to the Obama gang about tinkering with unemployment numbers, Obama’s DOJ jumped, jackboots first, into a multi-million dollar legal action against Gallup, in a case initiated by a former Obama operative.
A few days later, Eric Holder dropped the fifty-pound sledgehammer on Gallup, joining in a “whistleblower” action. The original complaint alleges that the Gallup organization inflated the number of hours required to do polling projects for the U.S. Mint, the State Department, and other federal agencies. (Why federal agencies even think they need to do polling is another subject for another time.)
