As I predicted, the pre-2012 election jobs numbers were fake

According to an article in the NY Post by John Crudele, it seems the jobs report numbers leading up to the 2012 presidential election were fake. As Curdele reports:

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.

Interestingly enough, last year it was Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, and a Florida Congressman who immediately spoke out about the veracity of those numbers. The Florida Congressman was yours truly, and here’s what I had to say about it then.

There’s simply no way possible that unemployment numbers could have dropped that much in one month when the new jobs numbers were dismal and the workforce participation rate continued to drop.

Every day we get more evidence that the Obama administration is a complete fraud and will go down as the largest fraud ever perpetrated against the American people.

My greatest concern is that this fraud runs so deep it may be beyond rectifying, especially when there is such a complicit media enabling it.

My comments came out last year before the election – and were scorned. Do Americans really want the truth? I think Jack Nicholson’s character, Colonel Nathan Jessup in “A Few Good Men” had it right. Maybe you can’t handle the truth.


  1. Try not to break your arm patting yourself on the back. The folks that are paying attention are way outnumbered by the folks that watch MSNBC. Did you catch that article on

  2. The majority of our government is corrupt and numbers are all made for the viewing pleasure of the American people. This government is no longer about the people for the people, it is about money in the politicians and Presidents pockets.

    • Remember back in the good old days when government corruption was called government corruption…. before they relabeled it “crony capitalism”?

  3. Great Job Mr. West. You kept your cool and gave out the figures while that idiot was screaming at you. Guess he just couldn’t take the truth. Oh,,,,listening to the truth would mean he’s been an idiot all along and voted for the wrong man for President. TWICE!!!!

      • Yes they do but guess what,,,,the truth has just hit. Julius Buckmon was caught and he admitted that higher ups told him to do it. Too bad they didn’t catch in before the elections. One more Scandal. This Administration has had so many scandal that it makes Watergate look good. Actually I had read somewhere that Michelle Obama monitors what they say. And I believe that one.

  4. Mr West What an honor it would be to have you with your honesty, integrity, & courage to be the leader of this country!

  5. Liberals can’t handle the truth. It’s like throwing holy water on a Demon, “complete melt down” And that libtard thought he was going to out smart Col. West.

  6. Mr. West has been SO RIGHT about our leadership all along. His consistently “spot on” observations have proved to be the “fresh air” that America needs. I wish this man would run for President. We need a strong, truthful man of character in the Whitehouse.

  7. I said the same thing at the time. This administration is the most dishonest, dirtbag bunch of people I have ever seen, and the media is complicit in it.

  8. Great insight Col. West! I agreed with you then and am not surprised that the truth is starting to come out…it’s like the rats jumping out of a sinking ship…too many lies have been told and too many idiots have been put into positions of power and they can’t hide it anymore. Quick question…since you do not support Obama and call him a fraud or a liar…based on Oprah’s most recent comments…does that make you a racist??? Of course not!!

  9. Mr. Tyler is an absolute idiot or he is just completely out of touch with reality. It is so hard to understand the ignorance of some journalists when it comes to research. Of course the numbers are wrong you moron, every administration has manipulated the numbers for years to give a favorable trend for them. Math and numbers are the easiest to manipulate. The government only counts those receiving UCI and disregards those who have exhausted their UCI, those in PT positions are counted as FT and those discouraged are not counted. The actual Unemployment is at 19.3% when ALL factors are taken into consideration. This is the lie that has always been delivered.

    • It’s not ignorance Gunny…’s blind obedience to they King Oblowme, and they’ll do or say ANYTHING to support their messiah. Sad isn’t it? But take heart…….True American patriots will prevail.

  10. Sir, Please run in 2016. Your backers are Legion. The only dirt “they” can throw Is the same BS the Drunken Frat boy used, and nobody seemed all that bothered then. As a former 97E ( retired 55D ), I can tell you what was alleged was mild in comparison to some of the intelligence gathering I have seen. You have the backing of myself and EVERY Operator I know. An officer willing to do whatever it takes to protect his soldiers and the civilians in his AO is the kind of man we would follow into hell Sir. West for Prez!! De oppresso liber!!!

  11. I also was screaming that this data was false but I’m out here in California and it seems no one will listen. Thank you for standing up for the truth, maybe NOW the rest of the sheep will begin to wake up and see that this President and the media are liars and hiding the truth from the American people.
    I know this is a very big question for you but…. here in California the Republican party is lost and the Dems. have gerrymandered the districts that it’s near impossible for a conservative to get elected. We need a “heavy hitter” to come stir the pot in this State. Would you ever consider moving to California and helping here?

  12. Thank you, Allen West, for shining the light of truth on these lamestream morons and their D party masters. This is excellent. West for President.

    • Like Obama? Actually West is right. The numbers are fudged. Unemployment does not include those who stopped looking for work. Government spending is counted as GDP. Monetary base numbers are manipulated. It goes on and on. Soon those numbers will blow up and the economy and currency of this country will collapse. Or you can just keep your head in the sand and keep telling yourself all is well, these things don’t happen in America. Good luck with that! Ha!

  13. here what I would like to know, Richard Nixon , got Impeached for lying about Watergate, and all Obama does is lie to the America people…. so why isn’t he being Impeached ???

      • Crystal, you’re right. And that shows us which president has more integrity and more concern for the American people. Nixon, by far.

      • And Bill Clinton was Impeached, voted against on the Senate Floor with the Chief Justice Presiding. Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution states “The President, Vice President, and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery and other High Crimes and Misdemeanors”. High crimes being constitutionally accepted by the Supreme Court numerous times as not “HIGH Crimes” but “Crimes” by a person in a “High Position”. Bill Clinton, once the process was over simply said “I aint going anywhere” and didn’t. Completely violating Article II of the U.S. Constitution. and Article I, Section 3. So, in agreement with Congressman. West, Articles of Impeachment should be brought. However, they will amount to nothing, but they would show that not only does the left completely disregard the Constitution and Constitutional Procedure, you would see how many Democrat Senators would be willing to break the law (In violation of the Constitution, because IAW with the U.S. Constitution, the Senate members are required to disregard partisan politics and vote only on the facts. How many more facts do we need? Of course it will never happen, Because our Constitutional Laws, Principles and Procedures are today, completely disregarded, its just an old piece of paper. When someone like Sebelius can sit in front of Congress and simply say “No” on requests, and when challenged simply use the very juvenile term “Whatever” and not be charged with Inherent Contempt and removed from the floor, then nothing will happen to anyone and the destruction will march on. BTW, not only was Clinton Impeached, decided to stay in office on his own in complete violation of the U.S. Constitution which the Senate and Chief Justice allowed, but later had his Impeachment overturned by a lackey judge.

      • The Senate didn’t do a trial and convict him. That’s how he managed to stay in office. They were are Democrats and wouldn’t do the trial. Once the House Impeaches a President it then has to go to trial before the Senate. They thought it was ridicules and that’s as far as it went. Now it’s up to us,,,,we need to start writing our Congressman/woman and stating all the things he has done and that we want him out of office. Also include all Senators for your state,,,,no matter what party they are from. The Democrats are running scared right now, so it’s a good time to start with the letters.

    • John,,,Nixon did resign before Impeachment proceeding started. Clinton was actually impeached but the Senate didn’t convict him so he remained in office.

  14. Everything this administration does is a lie in one way or another! And they are fighting Voter ID for a reason —

    • You bet they are fighting it. They need those people to secure there Voter base. If they win we can look forward to another 4 to 8 more years of Democratic Rule, unless we have Civil War II. That being said, they need to brush up on their history. We may have not had the best luck in some Theaters, but when it comes to World Wars and Civil Wars “we the people” are the hands down World Champions. They can keep getting rid of flag officers and the like all they want. All they are doing is helping us set up our command structure in the event if civil unrest or war. If they think that more than 10% of our current military would attack its own people, they have another thing coming. Make this rhetoric moot. Vote the terrorists out of office!

  15. I would like you to be the next CEO of the United States of America. You are the only politician who was brave enough to tell Americans that the US is not a sovereign nation. It is a corporation. Kudos. You have my vote.

  16. You know, there seems to be a trend starting to emerge here over the last couple of weeks now. The media is actually starting to do its job. Things are being uncovered and people that have been warning us over the last 5 years are being proven right. Most of those people like yourself and others far too many to list here but most of us know who they are have been vilified, criticized, called wackos, radicals, racists, terrorists, traitors, extremists, and conspiracy theorists. The trend I do not see is the media getting all or really ANY of those people back in front of a camera now and asking those same questions again now that new information has come out proving their original points that they warned us about.

  17. I appreciated the way you answered the question in a calm and professional manner. I also liked how you had statistics to back up your argument. Keep up the good work.

  18. The FIRST step to taking this country back, in my opinion is one that is fairly simple and easy enough to do, and would have the effect of killing the “Force Multiplier” this “President” enjoys, and that is, to clear out ALL journalists who have blood or relationship ties to the White House. It should be ILLEGAL to be a journalist and have a loved one who works in an administration…and vice versa. This seems like it could be an easy bill to pass. Has anyone tried to pass such a bill?
    You can do a Google search for this issue and be SHOCKED at how pervasive these kinds of relationships are in the WH/MSM sphere. It should be at minimum a HUGE conflict of interest.
    And lastly, Thank you Mr. West for your level headed response in the face of such a bastard of a journalist!
    I’ll be voting for YOU!!!

    • And, after this law is passed by congress, where will you get a president to sign it into law? Congress can pass any law it wants, but unless the president signs it, it is no better than toilet paper, ……much like this president treats our constotution, ….. like toilet paper

  19. Just to hear our pretender-in-chief speak makes my blood boil but the audacity of this piece of panty waste sent it off the chart. I wondered if he considered the fact that he was addressing a former U.S.Congressman (and that he is just a news whore) Did he realize that Allen West is one of the most intelligent, informed, and engaged individuals on the political scene today? and that for him to try and match wits with Mr. West was like bringing a firecracker to a tank battle? What a libtarded idiot. Surely he gave some thought to the years Mr. West rendered in service to our great nation in the armed forces?,,,No ,,,guess not ,,,,,,for after all he is just a libtarded news whore whose pimp resides in the white house. How dare him raise his voice of stupidity to such an honorable man. I live in the great state of Tennessee and can’t reach that far so if someone is reading this and can reach this particular obomabot, do me a favor and slap the back of his libtarded skull and say the word,,,,DUH?

  20. Oh, the self-righteous outrage by the CNBC host at the mere suggestion that the numbers might not be what the President’s administration said they were, as compared to your calm, cool, collected response to the host’s histrionics and insults. Thank you, Col. West, for being a true leader. Although many of us didn’t have the facts at hand like you did, we knew that something wasn’t right, and that the numbers just didn’t add up.

  21. The problem with all this is nothing changes – how is it
    this administration is still in power? Why haven’t our military generals
    taken power and crushed those passing laws that violate the people’s rights and doing their very best to usurp the constitution? Shouldn’t
    they (our Generals) also do their job and take back the government from the domestic enemies until our nation can be restored?

  22. Lies are a childish behaviour. The bible says the Lord wil appoint children over us. Alongwith tantrumsveled as exdecutive orders child murder as womens health. And blatant neglect of the constitution and the rights of all usa citizens we truly have an immatre president.

  23. Allen I love how intelligent you are! Thank you so much for your service, and your dedication to speaking the truth! If you ever want a job come run for office in Kansas we would love to have you.

  24. LTC West,

    Please come to Texas and run for office or for the love of god, PLEASE run for President of the United States.

    My ticket:
    President: Allen West
    VP: Rand Paul

      • Here is some home work on if a person can run for President or not. Happy reading. 🙂

        1. The Slaughterhouse Cases 83 U.S. 36 (1873) The Fourteenth Amendment excludes the children of aliens. “The phrase, “subject to its jurisdiction” was intended to exclude from its operation children of ministers, consuls, and citizens or subjects of foreign States born within the United States.”

        2. Minor v. Happersett 88 U.S. 162 (1874) The Fourteenth Amendment draws a distinction between the children of aliens and children of citizens. “The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also.”

        3. Elk v. Wilkins 112 U.S. 94 (1884) The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction” requires “direct and immediate allegiance” to the United States, not just physical presence. “This section contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two sources only: birth and naturalization. The persons declared to be citizens are “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” The evident meaning of these last words is not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction and owing them direct and immediate allegiance. And the words relate to the time of birth in the one case, as they do to the time of naturalization in the other. Persons not thus subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of birth cannot become so afterwards except by being naturalized, either individually, as by proceedings under the naturalization acts, or collectively, as by the force of a treaty by which foreign territory is acquired.”

        4. Wong Kim Ark Case, 169 U.S. 649 (1898) Affirms that “natural born citizen,” is the child of an existing citizen. “The right of citizenship never descends in the legal sense, either by the common law or under the common naturalization acts. It is incident to birth in the country, or it is given personally by statute. The child of an alien, if born in the country, is as much a citizen as the natural born child of a citizen, and by operation of the same principle.”

        5. Perkins v. Elg, 307 U. S. 325 (1939) In citing a long series of cases, involving minors removed from their US domicile by their foreign born parents, the Supreme Court distinguishes the difference of “a native born person” of two naturalized citizens can become President. This distinction of citizenship is not made to the others, only that their Jus soli citizenship is intact if at the age of majority they reclaim it.

  25. Enjoyed the clip ,.Mr. West you stayed on the Subject,.. As much as he tried side tracking it.. By bringing in Romney? I call that pulling a Obama , They do not address the issue , But go on about something unrelated to what the subject is , Again Great Job by you ……….Thanks Mr. West

  26. LOL I so love Col West! He is my front runner and choice for President of the United States/2016 with perhaps a Ted Cruz as his running mate.. I think that ticket would be unstoppable!!

  27. With Obama a self-proclaimed “not a numbers guy” we could really use someone like Allen West in the white house. West 2016!

  28. Those Odumbo worshippers are no match for Col West. He speaks the truth and they wont stay on subject. This man is most definitely qualified to be POTUS. He is smarter and more importantly more truthful than Odumbo. He is a real American.

  29. Right on Colonel… I can understand how the media is complicit but what about all the other Republicans or most of them???

    • The story doesn’t debunk anything. Julius Buckmon was the person they referenced in the report as the person who was fudging the data 2 years prior to the election. He was interviewed for the report, but he was not the actual source that the Curdele report is referring to.

  30. Mr. West: I’m glad the truth has come out, but as Hillary Clinton so boldly stated “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?” Who will be held accountable and when? This administration continues to lie on a daily basis and what bothers me is Obama has his finger on the nuke button. Crazy people do crazy things ! I really don’t think this country can hold out till the next election. That is 3 more years for this administration to continue bankrupting our beloved Country along with more diabolical things that might happen.

  31. Jack Welch is a criminal out here with what he did with Conseco Insurance a number of years ago. He sent American jobs to India.

  32. I just can’t talk about this president anymore with out getting myself in trouble. His admin is so sneaky and dddistrustful its truely unbeleivable. I have never considered myself to be racist but this president and his admin is changing a lot of minds and I think he is doing it purposely.

    • You have the right to dislike Obama, that certainly does not make you a racist! And yes, he is separating and dividing us intentionally!!

  33. Almost all the staffing, HR companies and 5 Big accounting firms are part of this fraudulent system. It is really evil. The best IT indian consultants investigated for the IT frauds in banks and Pentagon, The SAP FICO indian consultants, they do not have knowledge of basic accounting and industrial engineering knowledge for american companies as well as no knowledge of capitalism or other economic system. Estas usando a los Indios para hacer fraudes fiscales y contables tanto en empresas como en el sector público, There are using indian consultants to make fiscal and accounting frauds in Corporates and Government. There are some indian consultant that only using Vertix, they are giving a complete soluton in taxes world wide. Can you believe it? Lazies No es solo Oracle o SAP, la tecnología es para estudiantes de preparatoria, no usan tecnología de licenciaturas menos de maestría y doctorado. La tecnología que usan en los ERP esta soprepasada actualmente, usan tecnología de bajo nivel para hacer fraudes fiscales y contables actualmente

  34. The NSA system is a diabolic system created by lazies, science was not applied at all and it is done by high school workers without educative documents. It is a system that eats other systems like television, radio, telephone among others. Attacks several targets at the same time using CIA techniques of dealing with different groups. This system protects operations of the agencies including in the system, it is not only USA, but also India that supplied more of the technical support. Indians is kind of race without ethic at all. Everything is real time. Its weakness is the low level of technology used, because IT science was not applied, because they preferred domination of the technicians. IRS corrupt

  35. CIA confessed implanting me nanotechnology in my body in Internet. Twitter : youallsuck. CIA threating me. They will be taken care of their millions of dollars they have, specially in this economy.!

    Manning suggested that Obama’s involvement with older white men is what got him into Punahou, and Pope seems to agree, though she used a reference to the CIA or some “force” that got Obama “set up” at Punahou. “It was certainly not a natural thing,” she said. Is this guy a CIA agent? The CIA killed Kennedy

  36. China is going to learn how to control the population using an illegal media.Mexico currently is worse that the Soviet Union at this time. Mexicans are really stupid for sure . No doubt about it. Aztecs, Toltecs, Mayas are alive, they survived, and they are against the illuminaties, lazies, homosexual among others The Aztec, Olmecs, Mayas and others are alive in Mexico against the Illuminaties, I hope can be extended to the north of Mexico and South of USA . Integral education at all level to protect our companies and our nation. Bill Gates copied me wrong Mexico and USA want their illegal Presidents in jail Both of them are workig as ex-CIA agents working for Bush The right way for not paying taxes in LATAM How to get ride of dictators Instead of studying, the government is saving money because capos are paying the students to work for them

  37. Andrew Pease and CPS San Antonio are criminals. Obama is using CPS against iT consultants and finance top managers . Possible human traffic activities between DIF Mexico and CPS San Antonio, and relation with the catholic Pope.
    The pope start visiting and made business with them, The catholic church has to recuperate the money of the sues against them in …USA. He knew about the killing of millions of Chineses of a religious group, Chineses offered him the life of the Chinese children of this religious group (Genocide massacre in China). Good opportunity, he contacted Hillary Clinton, and Calderon, opus dei members, business done in high level.
    It seems that Joaquin Castro works for the China Imperium including India and their satellites countries like Mexico. Human Traffic between DIF Mexico to CPS San Antonio of Mexican, children from India and Chinese children. Allowing investment of American and Mexican mafias in San Antonio. Shame on Joaquin Castro. The true will come soon.
    Calderon and his wife controlled DIF Mexico, the only entity similar to Child Protective Services in USA and with legal authority to USCIS (Immigration), Calderon and his wife were the only taking decision of adoption in Mexico through the States, instead of help many children to legalize their situation in the States, they used them as a personal business, each child more than 15,000.00 USD, they were coming from China, India and also Mexican children to be given in adoption in the States, no body (Mexican, Mexican American families), even the personnel in DIF Mexico knows that DIF is the only legal entity recognized by USCIS to do that. Only my estimates annually with Chinese children are more 200 million dollars , but it was only a personal business of Calderon and Fox that no Mexican or Mexican American was beneficiated. Kidnnaping of my daughter in San Antonio, TX some year ago violating Haya Convention because of her dual citizenship, using NSA system, indian and mexican killers

  38. Please stop hiring indians, and get rid of them Really diabolic, get out of the Americas right away The mexican illuminaties are really really so lazies Indians are good well for not paying USA and other countries taxes. Indians are totally wrong in taxes around the world Only the IT indian people can afford to pay for it. That it is why Texas is a mess with human traffic, it is the place of the IT indian consultants, and it is spreading in all USA. We have to add low level mexicans and others. Stop giving money to Mexico for the Merida Treaty Do not use our tax money in that. China is using mainly slaves Master illuminati of Mexico, partner of Bush, ex-CIA working against mexicans for so long time.

  39. Destroying of the USA in our own soil, Indian fraud. Indian IT ideas and work simply does not work at all. The NSA indians fell against mexicans. The illuminaties killing -for-digging-too-deep While they are changing the constitutions illegaly, Master illuminati in Finance world wide is totally a fraud. Because of the worst Presidents in the History. Mexico and USA are falling like an Empire , politicians are not the solutions. Definetly worse than Santana Master illuminati of Mexico, partner of Bush, ex-CIA working against mexicans for so long time. The diavolic NSA is getting into the rental cars, GPS of the rental cars. Also they are modified the seats of the car to implant you electromagnetic devices in your back while you are driving. Also they are sending secret agents to your hotel or follow you to do these changes, it is really fast and easy to do it with their technology.Also the radio of the car is arranged in certain way to target you, and insult you when you are turning it on.

  40. The Democrats have and is still destroying the USA. Start with Bill Clinton who started the sucking of American jobs out of the USA. His first year in office after signing the Free Trade bill sucked 9,000,000 million jobs out and we went from a 2 billion dollar export revenue to a 17 billion dollar import deficit. By the time he left offices 100,000,000 plus million jobs where gone and 140 billion dollars import deficit. Now Obama has destroy the health care for most Americans and turn this country built on the constitution and god into a religious war against Islamic terrorist and Socialism . You know if the Democrats are for American people I would hate to see what damage they could do if they were against us.

    • and this is why america is on a downward spiral. you really need to read and think before spouting ill conceived opinion. but if you insist upon following hate mongers and bible cherry pickers such as the duck folks, then down the drain we go together.

      • You know you need to look up information and not believe everything you hear and read on the news. Every think I have said can be proven all you have to do is look it up. Start with the NAFTA bill and go from there. But hey you know Bible pickers don’t kill people because those people don’t believe as they do.

  41. You’re a real warrior for freedom and desparately needed by our great nation during this seemlingly endless Constitutional crisis we are living under this rogue administration!
