I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would reveal the truth behind this situation. Move in the U.S. Census Bureau, God, to prevent an error like this from happening again.

An error made by the U.S. Census Bureau allowed blue states to keep extra congressional seats, while preventing red states from gaining more.

From The Washington Times. In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.


All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.

Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College. It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn’t have, and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn’t deserve.

These harmful errors also mean billions in federal funds will be misallocated. Funding for many federal programs is distributed to the states based on population….

The Census Bureau has not explained how it got the 2020 census so wrong. This is particularly troublesome because the bureau reported an error rate of 0.01% in the 2010 census — an overcount of only 36,000 people, a statistically insignificant mistake….

After each census, the bureau interviews a large number of households across the country and then compares the interview answers with the original census responses. The 2020 survey showed that the bureau overcounted the population in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island and Utah. The largest mistake was in President Biden’s home state of Delaware, which was overcounted by 5.45%.

The states whose populations were undercounted were Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. The largest error in the undercount was in Arkansas, where the population count was off by 5.04%….

One thing, however, must be done. Congress needs to use its oversight authority to investigate and determine why these errors happened, particularly since they didn’t occur in the 2010 census. Lawmakers should then make the changes necessary to ensure this does not happen again.

It amazed me the number of people who didn’t want to give information to the.government since they use it against people.
Most simply didn’t believe it when we said that wasn’t true.

The system wasnt very accurate the way we did things but you have to acknowledge peoples right to give minimal information.
Now with a million illegals in the burg what will happen?

Lie lie lie! I don’t believe this for one minute! The Census Bureau is under the demonic obama/biden thumb! All the years that the Census has been taken and all of a sudden they miscounted! Liars! I worked for the Census in 2010 and this kind of mistake cannot happen just by the logistics of how the count is taken! FATHER GOD please expose these lies of satan and let us take every system in our country back in JESUS NAME! The Census, FBI, CIA, CONGRESS, WHITE HOUSE, back to us the people in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!

Really? Surely not… wrong counts??? Dear God, nothing surprises me anymore as CORRUPTION is running wild in America with probably the largest percentage of members of Congress involved in money payments for their votes rather than following laws of America. Unfortunately the FBI, DOJ, and the White House and leaders of Congress involved in lying and corruption. A very SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS IN AMERICA! Oh Father God, America needs you more than ever! Please send a huge revival across America…let the Holy Spirit blow across our country. Reinstate funding for law enforcement. Provide godly men and women in our states government as well as our national government. Come Lord Jesus Come!!! In Jesus name Amen❣️

Father, they hate everything You.
1 How blessed are those who reject the advice of the wicked, don’t stand on the way of sinners or sit where scoffers sit!
Psalm 1:1
The earth’s kings are taking positions, leaders conspiring together, against ADONAI and his anointed.
Psalm 2:2
But you, ADONAI, are a shield for me; you are my glory, you lift my head high.
Psalm 3:3
