Joe Biden has another scandal on his hands regarding juked stats.
The Philadelphia Federal Reserve (PFR) did an analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and it was not good.
In fact, the PFR found that the stats had been juked considerably, as in overstating jobs by more than one million.
The Real Numbers
As a way to offset the negative economy that Biden has created with some of his absurd policies, he has been hanging on to the idea that the jobs market is rocking, so we are in okay shape.
Biden's BLS had reported that we had an increase of 1,047,000 jobs in the second quarter.
That number, according to the PFR, was actually only 10,500 jobs.
Additionally, employment data in 29 states had been overstated significantly.
In some of the states, that difference was significantly different.
For instance, according to the PFR metrics, Delaware had a 4.1 loss, but Biden's BLS posted it as a 4.5 percent increase.
The PFR says that its data is more accurate because it takes its information from the "more comprehensive, accurate job estimates released by the BLS as part of its Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages program."
As noted above, Biden was using these numbers prior to the elections to contrast inflation and to maintain that the economy was in good shape.
Republicans are pouncing on this new report…
WRONG BY A MILLION JOBS. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.@JoeBiden's admin has been lying to the American people about our economy to prop up his failed agenda & I won't stand for it. I'm requesting an immediate meeting with the head of @BLS_gov. WE NEED ANSWERS NOW! pic.twitter.com/OKwsiYSoER

The numbers are concerning on more than one front.
There have already been questions that census data was twisted in favor of Democrats, resulting in favorable redistricting for the party around the country.
Republican strongholds were drastically undercounted while Democrat strongholds were drastically overstated.
This, of course, not only impacts district lines but also electoral votes.
And they wonder why the average American no longer trusts our government.
