Is the White House considering unconstitutional action?

February 9, 2009

Our Dear Leader is saying that he wants to take control of the US Census directly under his control in the White House.

Why would this democrat president want to take control of what should be a nonpartisan process of accurately counting the number of Americans in each state?

Personally, I think it is because of known and documented population shifts.

The big winner is Texas, which is likely to gain three new seats in the House of Representatives. Other states would gain single seats. Those being Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Utah.

The losers are Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. All are on track to loose a single seat.

There it is. Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania have majority democrat congressional delegations. In the case of Massachusetts, the entire delegation is made up of far hard left liberal extremist democrats. Not only will those states loose a member of congress, the states will lose a vote in the electoral college.

So, to keep the damage as low as possible, Our Dear Leader wants to remove control of the census from the non-partisan commerce department and move it into the White House where he and his staff of tax cheats can control the process.

An action that is in violation of the Unite States Constitution.

Don’t hold your press waiting for CNN or MSNBC (i.e. the Obama network) to break this story.

Update: Michelle Malkin picks up on this story.

Update: John Fund at the Wall Street Journal agrees.

“There’s only one reason to have that high level of White House involvement [in the US Census],” a career professional at the Census Bureau tells me. “And it’s called politics, not science.”

Population shift may affect 2012 election

December 23, 2008

It looks like the 2010 Census will cause a reallocation of Congressional House seats, and a corresponding shift in Electoral College votes.

The big winner is Texas, which is likely to gain three new seats in the House of Representatives. Other states would gain single seats. Those being Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Utah.

The losers are Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. All are on track to loose a single seat.

Except for Iowa, all of the states loosing a seat have majority democrat congressional delegations. In the case of Massachusetts, the entire delegation consists of far left extremist liberal democrats.

The states gaining seats all went Republican in 2000 and 2004.

This trend in population shift is continuing. It is possible for more House seats to shift by the time the 2010 Census is counted.

Update: Welcome Instapundit readers (and thanks for the grammar tip ;->)
Could this be why our Dear Leader wants to bring control of the upcoming 2010 Census directly into the White House and out of the non-partisan control of the Commerce department?

Samizdata.net blog asks a very good question.

Is a White House take over of the census constitutional?
