THE MORNING RANT: Why Do Intelligent People Continue to Rely on Government Data That is Known to Be False?

Labor Statistics Pinocchio Charts.JPG

I read the financial press and I listen to the “wisdom” of people in places of importance as it relates to business and economic issues. It is beyond perplexing to me how these intelligent credentialed people can be lied to again and again by those in government who produce economic data, yet these same credentialed leaders wait with bated breath for the next round of completely bogus economic reports. They then make critical decisions based on that data, even though there is a near certainty it will be revised to a less favorable report (or simply proven false) once the headlines become stale.

As I have documented on numerous occasions, the inflation rate produced by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics is comically understated. Of course, you don’t need a blogger providing you statistics to figure this out. If you are paying for groceries, insurance, utilities, etc. you are well aware that actual inflation is far in excess of the laughably false 3% rate that the government is reporting. But business and economic leaders eagerly await each new inflation report, even though it will reveal a number much lower than actual. They’re being lied to, and they know they’re being lied to, but they still rely on information that they must know is fraudulent.

Employment data produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is also fraudulent, with the government habitually publishing favorable numbers regarding jobs and unemployment, then quietly revising them after the initial euphoric headlines.

“Initial US employment reports overstated by 439,000 jobs in 2023” [Fox Business – 01/15/2024]

The government quietly erased 439,000 jobs through November 2023, a closer look at the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. That means its initial jobs results were inflated by 439,000 positions, and the job market is not as healthy as the government suggests.

Again, people in positions of power and authority are making decisions that are impacted by these jobs reports, despite the fact that there is a pattern of predictable misrepresentation in these reports. I’d be a little comforted if just once I heard a major financial CEO state that while he knows the government data is fraudulent, the pattern of the fraud indicates a certain trend that he finds to be favorable.

In my career, I have spent a lot of time looking at the financial reporting of companies who are clients of mine. Though it’s been infrequent, I have occasionally uncovered some level of fraudulent financial reporting. When this happens, I know that I am about to embark on a painful journey of discovery, in which each false accounting entry ripples throughout the reports, and nothing that was previously relied on can be assumed to be true.

If I observe that my client seems to be having cash flow challenges, and I then take a closer look at its books and realize that a receivable from a customer has been faked, that also means that my client’s revenue and income are falsely overstated. Further, I know that once I dive in deeper, I’ll probably find a lot of other misrepresentations that I had been relying on. What I don’t do is simply hope that the client will provide me another round of falsified financial reporting with rosy results, seeming to make the problem go away.

But what I’ve just described is effectively what our elite business and economic leaders are doing. Despite all the economic lies and fraudulent data that the Bureau of Labor Statistics has spit out, these leaders rejoice each time the latest round of fraudulent inflation and employment data is released. It’s especially alarming how leaders of major financial institutions that would not tolerate falsified financial reporting from their own borrowers are enthusiastically complicit in validating phony government financial reporting.

I am not predicting DOOM! But I do know that making any decision based on falsified reporting is reckless. Even more concerning is that when an entity feels the need to produce fraudulent reporting, it is an almost certainty that it is suppressing important information that it doesn’t want known.

This premise also applies to other governmental reporting, be it climate, or public health, or wherever else the regime is prevaricating in order to advance its power and control.

As we’ve discussed many times around here, the government’s climate apocalysts are producing flagrantly false temperature data to advance the climate hysteria:
The Hottest year Ever? NOAA is Including Fabricated Data from Hundreds of Decommissioned Stations in Its Temperature Database

The CDC “accidentally” inflated the Covid death toll, which conveniently helped advance the implementation of Covid sharia.

CDC Says It Accidentally Inflated Children’s COVID Death Numbers In ‘Coding Logic Error’ [Daily Caller – 3/18/2022]

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised its data this week to reduce pediatric deaths from COVID-19 by nearly 24%.

The only reliable assumption regarding the pattern of falsified reporting from government agencies is that everything they report is false and intentionally misleading. Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.

*****

My latest piece at The Pipeline (“‘Covering Climate Now’ and the Corrupt Corporate Media”) is the second in a two-part look at the eco-communist organization “Covering Climate Now,” and how thoroughly it has infiltrated and corrupted legacy media organizations as they promote the climate panic.

I’d be honored if you’d give it a read.

I think for many of them it's more complicated than that. They know the numbers will jerked off if not fucked in the ass. But the actual accuracy is less important than what the Fed and other government decision-makers will do based on the numbers.

For example, lower inflation numbers will increase the chances that the Fed cuts rates, which will juice the equities markets. For many people, the markets are all they care about. I fully expect some bogus "report" that justifies lower rates to try to save Joey Showers' presidency.

I would theorize that one of the requirements for becoming an "elite" business or economic leader is the requirement that you accept, at face value, whatever the government tells you the data says... at least as long as a Democrat is in the WH.

39 Due to the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect

"Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.

In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know."

82 I am not predicting DOOM! But I do know that making any decision based on falsified reporting is reckless. Even more concerning is that when an entity feels the need to produce fraudulent reporting, it is an almost certainty that it is suppressing important information that it doesn’t want known.

It isn't just that they lie, but that the direction of the lie depends on who has power. If it's them, they lie to the upside. If it's us, they lie to the downside. Oh wait, it all averages out, so there's no problem.

83 Why Do Intelligent People Continue to Rely on Government Data That is Known to Be False?

AZ Deplorable hit on a very true aspect of it. Another example is in the world of meteorology, where if a forecaster goes off the National Weather Service reservation and is repeatedly wrong (independent of whether the NWS itself is wrong about the same event, but in a different way), he/she could lose their accreditation (the ability to earn a living predicting weather).

So the safe bet is to state the NWS and offer an "opinion" or show a preference for a particular model to justify something that is counter to the Federal Narrative. (the source of all Truth&trade

85 Inflation is a social construct.

In a sense it is, but its a core part of the idea of currency - if you introduce more of something to a market the price goes down. And when the price of money goes down that means the price of all good you can acquire with that money goes up...

Of course to your point the left thinks it is a different sort of social construct as in if we just told all those bad evil companies to cut their prices then it would go away. Not the company that some lefty owns stock in or works at...but all the other companies.

100 Psychology researchers at the University of Minnesota, published in the journal Intelligence, report numerous intelligence tests found that being more clever "is correlated with a range of left-wing and liberal political beliefs."

Greed, selfishness, MINE! MINE! MINE! is the basest of instincts and requires no intelligence. Intelligence is planning, planting, cultivating, teamwork, sharing, fair play, building foundations for the future so that all can thrive.

Intelligent people know they aren't the only person on the planet. It's important to have a society where all have justice and opportunity. Teamwork takes you further than competitiveness. Cooperating with neighbors yields better dividends than fighting. Bigoted and ignorant is no way to go through life.


Authoritarian thinking doesn't require a whole lot of imagination. Just follow the biggest and meanest and hurt those that he tells you to hurt. Very appealing to the cruel and stupid among us.

being a liberal doesn't so much increase a groups average intelligence, but people with curiosity and cognitive skill feel most comfortable associated with liberal politics.

I believe the mechanism is that interested parties (often Hedgefunds) will tell the agencies a week in advance what the official first release numbers will be so that the kleptoligarchs can place their positions ahead of the "revised" numbers that inevitably come out. The kleptoligarchs know both sides of the trade in advance and can play the long/short twice on each release.

She also apparently likes to play with knives and other stabby things. Think you could dig up the video somewhere with her displaying that talent on video.

160 136 Psychology researchers at the University of Minnesota, published in the journal Intelligence, report numerous intelligence tests found that being more clever "is correlated with a range of left-wing and liberal political beliefs."

I've seen a few of these tests and they have two common problems:

1) They specifically correlate leftwing beliefs and science. So if disagree that the clot shot reduces the impacts of COVID, that the earth is warming, etc, you'll "get the answer wrong"

2) How do you assess someone's politics? Well one answer is sit down with an interviewer and ask them. And who are the questioners? Usually trans-tifa members, blue haired feminist spheriods, or FABULOUS FIERCE gay men. Now...tell them how you feel about abortion or "gay rights"

Intelligence is highly subjective, whereas knowledge and wisdom can be measured.

Wisdom is knowing that tomatoes don't belong in a fruit salad.

The dropoff is due to colder temperatures, which in turn moves the sea ice further north, cutting off the seal's food supply and breeding grounds. They are now moving to sub-Antarctic islands in search of new breeding and feeding grounds.

Also Mimetic Double Bind; the idea that to just keeping up with the Joneses is not enough, there is a competition for status and edgy-ness to differentiate, pushing the taboos is a traditional vector, similar to a two-year-old attempting to discover the outer limits of a parent's permissiveness. When the elites were groping up 16 y.olds they should have received the beat-downs, but no one stopped them; so they try for 14y.o. then 12y.o. until they get the beat down and made to stop.

Perversely, this constant dive into utter depravity is taking away the IC community's main threat of exposing kiddie-pr0n on the computer of someone they want to control as soon that evil will be acceptable.

"Whole bunch" is overstating the case. Roy Moore was controversial in AL long before then, barely winning his statewide races in deep red AL for about a decade before the Senate race.

The barrage probably moved a few thousand votes in places like Birmingham, Mobile, and Montgomery from red to blue. Because he was already kind of unpopular.

282 Have we considered this rise in debauchery is associated directly to the rise in the “free to be your and me” movement? Where we stopped telling people their behavior was wrong? Where judging people became awful? When you remove gating mechanisms and eliminate stigma, you get hedonism, right?

I will never understand pedos. Nor will I get people who just lump it in as another sexual behavior. The truth is when we stop making it a priority to protect our children, we lose our humanity. You would think as the supreme animal we would be able to mother at least as well as a cat.

In the Rogan/Carlson interview, Tucker observed that weak men are susceptible to evil spirits. I've contended for decades that the fastest way to demon possession is to reside in Babylon DC. It took Johnson less than six months to go from respected evangelical to demon.

It is because he is a nominal Christian, weak, vain and now in a position of power - a regular honey pot for demons.

287 James is a loose cannon, and the rest of the NY government is trying to rein her in.

When the governor has to publicly tell the New York business community: "We're only doing this to Trump, and we would never, ever, think of doing this to you", you have a problem.

Sure.

I'm just saying it didn't take a Republican landslide and turn it into a narrow loss. It turned what could have been a narrow win into a narrow loss.

Roy Moore was simply not a good candidate...based on his previous electoral history in the same state.

Ultimately, though, I blame Luther Strange for running in the race at all instead of bowing out gracefully and working to smooth the transition to the next Republican. But, power.

Kavanaugh is an example of the Beltway Uniparty and has been since forever. His tenure on the DC Circuit, other than 2A cases, was very similar to his butt buddy John Roberts on that court.

Kavanaugh is a perfect example why using the Federalist Society to vette judges is about as useful to find conservative ones as ABA ratings.

Posted by: Ian S.

Yes, the famous "color revolution". There was a guy that filmed a lot of what happened on Jan 6th, an independent journalist. He reviewed a lot of his videos in a "safe house" days after Jan 6th, because he expected the government to come after him (they did, a few years later). He watched them with some Special Forces operatives, and they pointed out what people were doing in the crowd, as they had been on other operations during so-called "Color Revolutions".

Griggs is what is holding the universities from trying to finesse their way around the Harvard ruling. If they do anything that touches Griggs I don't think the Court would necessarily invalidate Griggs, but they might wipe out the disparate impact tag that was added to the case.

The DEI folks are in a trap slowly collapsing on them for which there is no escape.

Given the two surrenders were on FISA and massive foreign aid, I suspect his demons were from the Deep State that probably threatened his life and those of loved ones if he did not play ball. His vote to break the tie on FISA warrant requirement personally is a sign.

Modernity is based on rejection of all past values and traditions in order to be in style for the moment. Not surprising that the children are viewed as prey and that has been true since at least the 1970's with child models and advertising based on sexualizing children.

295 Also, background checks came about as a method to limit liability. For example, if you hire someone with a known violent past, and that person goes on to beat up a coworker, the company was negligent. That said, the background checks and reasons for disqualifying had to have a connection to the job. If the person would never handle money, a credit check is not necessary. If a person would never drive any type of vehicle on company business, the driving record is mute. That was the method to avoid disparate impact - tying the background check to the role in question. Also, it had to be convictions, not just arrests. I wonder how this will play out when we remove this ability from companies and someone gets assaulted. Will the company be protected from a lawsuit? I doubt it.

296 My girl kitten is a Siberian. Her breeder, a lady I've known for many years, has said that one of her more recent females was born in Ukraine, and shipped over here -- about two years ago. That must have been a major undertaking.

I have a fondness for animal rescue videos--one of the channels I watch operates in Ukraine. Had some interesting videos two years ago where they had armed escorts because they were working where there had been fighting recently...and there was no guarantee the combatants had all departed. Total fucking shitshow.

Strangely, more recent videos show little sign of the war. You tell me what's up with that.

300 SOme idiot freind of my haubsnad was touting the crime stats under Biden on Facebook. It didn't take long for me to find out the following, that throws doubt on the accuracy of those stats (other than the fact that they come from the FBI / DOJ):

Violent crime had already been decreasing since 1990. However any statistical differences starting in 2021 cannot be accurately gauged: 

1. 2023 crime statistics have but been reported and assembled and two data sets are insufficient to indicate a "trend."

2. The FBI switched from a system called SRS to NIBRS in 2021 as the system by which various agencies around the country report crime statistics. Under SRS, about 90% of agencies reported crime statistics. In the first year of NIBRS, reporting was less than 64%, with fewer that 10% of California and Florida agencies providing statistics, and fewer than 20% of agencies in New York and Pennsylvania providing crime statistics. The two most populous cities in the country, New York City and Los Angeles did not provide statistics. (Additionally, San Francisco did not report as well.)

Something similar should be applied to our own government.
