26. numbers are a fraud
BLS website was down for corrections after they got caught

Either way this report is nothing to cheer, the employment rate - that is, actual people having actual jobs - went down.

How can both the employment rate and unemployment rate go down? Simple - a large number of people just rolled off the list, having exhausted their benefits and/or given up looking for work entirely.
