The Deep State Cooked The Census To Help Democrats

Did you ever notice how government and media “mistakes” only seem to help Democrats?

In his latest column for Newsweek, our friend Ben Weingarten has a must-read analysis of how census “undercounts” and “overcounts” accrued to the advantage of Democrats in the decennial congressional redistricting following the 2020 census.


Mr. Weingarten explained that the House Democrats’ "Ensuring a Fair and Accurate Census Act" will do nothing of the sort, but it does represent an inadvertent admission of failure in the last census—one of mammoth proportions, and with massive political implications, that you likely have not heard about.


The fact that such a failure has garnered minimal coverage and therefore public attention, while manifesting itself in the corruption of our republican system, demonstrates the disingenuousness of our ruling regime's otherwise-hysterical "democracy defenders."


The failure lies in the census count itself, which according to the Census Bureau's own research was grossly inaccurate, and therefore grossly unfair to the American people, said Mr. Weingarten.


While the Bureau, in conducting its Post-Enumeration Survey, only found a relatively small net undercount in the total U.S. population of 0.24%—or approximately 780,000 people—it also found major overcount/undercount errors when it comes to the 50 states.

And strikingly, it appears one party seems to have overwhelmingly benefited from the errors. You can probably guess which, observed Mr. Weingarten.

It turns out the Census Bureau significantly undercounted the populations of, in descending order by percentage: Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Illinois, and Texas. So, of states with errant population counts to the downside, all but one—Illinois—was a red state. Conversely, eight states were overcounted, all but one of which—Utah—were blue.


Of the Democrat-dominated states that received overcounts, among the largest overcount errors could be found in none other than Joe Biden's home state of Delaware, whose population was overcounted by an estimated 5.4%.


These errors flow through our political system in hugely significant ways. For starters, congressional seats are apportioned based on the census count. That apportionment, of course, impacts the Electoral College and therefore presidential races. Numerous states also based their recent redistricting on census figures. And last but not least, some $1.5 trillion in federal funds annually are allocated to jurisdictions based on the census figures, noted Mr. Weingarten.


Those errors should be unacceptable to all Americans, regardless of political persuasion. Beyond the fact it is simply embarrassing in the 21st century that the counts could be so inaccurate—regardless of whatever disruption COVID-19 may have had, which might have also been partially mitigated by the fact that more people were presumably home to be physically surveyed—our republican system definitionally requires representation in order to work.


Evidently, we do not have it—at least not of the fair and accurate kind.


Some states, and therefore the voters within them, have more power than others—to which they should not be entitled, concluded Mr. Weingarten.


The practical effect of this, according to former Federal Election Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky, now with The Heritage Foundation, is that if a politician from Florida decides to run for president in 2024, his (or her) home state will be short two votes in the Electoral College, and when the new session of the U.S. House of Representatives convenes in January 2023, Florida will be missing two congressional seats to which it is entitled.


Rhode Island and Minnesota were also overcounted by 5.05% and 3.84%, respectively, which allowed each of them to keep a congressional seat to which they are not entitled.


Minnesota, according to the original census report, would have lost a congressional seat during reapportionment if it had 26 fewer residents; the survey shows the state was overcounted by 216,971 individuals. Similarly, Rhode Island would have lost a seat if the Census Bureau had counted 19,000 fewer residents. It turns out that the state was overcounted by more than 55,000 individuals.


So both states will continue to have more representation in Congress, and more votes in the Electoral College, than they should. The same is true of Colorado, which was awarded a new congressional seat that it should not have gotten.


Contrast that with Texas, which the Census Bureau survey says was undercounted by almost 2%. That represents over a half a million Texans, which means that, like Florida, Texas was cheated out of an additional member of Congress. At that time, the Census Bureau said that Texas needed only 189,000 more people to gain another congressional seat. Turns out Texas already had them.


Arkansas had the largest percentage undercount at 5.04%, which represented over 150,000 residents of the state.


There is no remedy in the federal statutes governing the census and apportionment to correct this problem. The scope of this problem was unusually high, and the Census Bureau has not offered any explanation as to how this happened, said Mr. von Spakovsky.


We have an explanation that is implicit in the facts reported by Ben Weingarten and Hans von Spakovsky, and that is that Deep State bureaucrats at the Census Bureau – the same ones who didn’t want the citizenship question reinstated, cooked the books to the advantage of their patrons in the Democratic Party. And, they knew when their chicanery was discovered, as it would be by the Post-Enumeration Survey, there could be no do-over, just like there could be no do-over once the problems with the 2020 presidential election were discovered in the year following Joe Biden’s illegitimate inauguration.

I myself worked at the Census Bureau in 2010 and indeed I worked in performing the 2010 Census. I took pride in my job and made sure I was accurate and not dishonest, as I knew vital an accurate Census was. This was also during the time when I was transitioning from a liberal to a conservative. I was brainwashed at UMass and learned the real world was different upon graduation.


Sad to now hear this happening at the Census Bureau. How important is the electoral count. I met John Kerry supporters campaigning for him in New Hampshire in 2004. I told one of them that New Hampshire only had 4 electoral college votes. The Kerry supporter snapped at me…

The Republican Party is perfectly happy playing second fiddle to the Socialist Democrats. So this should surprise no one. We need a new, far-more conservative party to represent us.


To that end, I would encourage everyone to check out the website for the Founders Party of America. Please let me know what you think, folks.

I wanted to share this article (assuming I could verify the information) until I got to the last sentence... "just like there could be no do-over once the problems with the 2020 presidential election were discovered in the year following Joe Biden’s illegitimate inauguration." This has nothing to do with the article and implies an illegitimate inauguration which has not been proven or effectively challenged. This also demonstrates bias on the part of the author which cast doubts on the veracity of the rest of the article. I now doubt the data in the article although it may be factual, and I have no doubt as to the objectivity of the author. Just stick to the facts. Why thro…

Total BS that corruption and graft is cooked into the system. The responsible parties should be found and given stiff jail sentences. Of course, to resolve systemic graft and corruption requires the Republicans to grow a spine...and be free of graft and corruption themselves. Caesar's wife....

The swamp is deep, and the GOP is as much a part of this corrupt political system as Biden and the Democrats. It is precisely the reason we need a new political party to represent us. As I said many times before, I recommend the Founders Party of America.
