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.

In other words, one part of the government – the Commerce Department – will investigate another part of the government – the BLS. We can only assume the NSA will certify the findings of the Commerce Department?

Rinse. Repeat.

And now on to the November nonfarm payrolls “report” which forms the basis for the Fed’s “(manipulated) data dependent” $85 billion monthly liquidity injection into stock markets.
