(Continued - The Truth About The Stock Market Crisis. Prepare Yourself.)
As new Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell was sworn in on Monday February 5th, 2018, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by almost 1,600 - about 6% - before recovering with a total decline of 1,179 points by the end of the day. All major indexes felt losses with the Nasdaq Composite falling by 3.8%, the S&P 500 decreased by 4% and the broad Russell 2000 dropped by 2.9%.
The uncertainly over future monetary policy decisions by incoming Federal Reserve decision makers (three vacancies at the Fed have yet to be filled by President Trump’s administration) and Yellen’s outgoing commentary unquestionably influenced the recent market drop – but the full story is far more complicated.

24/7 surveillance. Smart grid controls. Carbon rationing. Today we talk to "Technocracy Rising" author Patrick Wood about the hidden history of technocracy, the dark plan for a resource-based economy that is being pushed by the Trilateral Commission, the UN, and other globalist institutions in order to bring about a completely managed, controlled and regulated society.
Technocracy Rising Contents
As I reported some time ago, UN strongman Maurice Strong told an audience of environmentalists at a side-event to the 2012 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro that China is the model-state for the rest of the world to emulate in regards to environmental matters.
“What China does matters to the world”, Strong said, “and what China is doing is actually a tremendous source of encouragement.”
Strong went on to say that “sustainable development” has become a “people’s movement guided by the people’s government.”
Strong is a long-time advocate of the sort of draconian population policis that China has forced upon its people. As far back as the early 1970s, Strong hesitatingly admitted to the BBC that such a thing as a license to have a child is the kind of system he would see implemented globally:

The Ultimate Rockefeller Depopulation Propaganda Film
Published on May 28, 2015
Aaron takes on the 1972 United Nations propaganda film that has the captains of the planet take control over the world’s growing population, using Malthusian rhetoric to demand that “less people be invited to be born” and that every trick in the book be used for control. This shameless parade features such regular eugenicists as John D. Rockefeller III, Obama Science Czar John P. Holdren, Agenda 21 chief Maurice Strong and numerous other psuedo-scientists using their clout to demand development taxes from the rich countries lest a “population bomb” be dropped on the world… and that’s just a preview of things to come under carbon taxes, environmental laws and “microliving” under the austerity of a world where humans must be the “solution to the disease they created.”
Quadrillions of Fraudulent DEBT!!
A WORLD HELD HOSTAGE BY BANKERS
-- Learn about Glass–Steagall Act in FALL OF THE REPUBLIC --
Washington is owned by the private global banking cartel that owns Wall Street. International law does not apply to this criminal cartel. They stole trillions of dollars from the American people with help from corrupt politicians over a stretch of many decades, culminating in the government bailout in 2008, and they have not been held accountable.
These bandits and looters could care less if America crashes and burns. In fact, they want America to die because they want to institute a private world government upon its ruins. And they’re doing a fantastic job at it because they’ve had decades of practice in nations in Latin America, Africa, and Asia where they bought off greedy politicians, and robbed their people through the IMF/World Bank/WTO.
The entire business model of the private global banking tricksters is based on stealing the wealth of nations, and destroying national independence in order to allow lawless multinational corporations to completely take over. Read this article about how they do it.
Once nations are put into needless debt by these private global bankers, they put the squeeze on them by forcing them to pay back usurious loans that make them go bankrupt. After the inevitable mayhem that follows national collapse, they impose a military dictatorship so that the people can’t resist. Damon Vrabel calls it the “death of nations.” He writes:
The fact is that most countries are not sovereign (the few that are are being attacked by CIA/MI6/Mossad or the military). Instead they are administrative districts or customers of the global banking establishment whose power has grown steadily over time based on the math of the bond market, currently ruled by the US dollar, and the expansionary nature of fractional lending. Their cult of economists from places like Harvard, Chicago, and the London School have steadily eroded national sovereignty by forcing debt-based, floating currencies on countries.
Civilized nations stand up for themselves, they don’t bow down to private bankers. America can prove to the world that it is civilized, honest, and free by showing the global banking overlords the door.
The way to fight back against the global robbers at the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank/IMF/World Bank and the big banks is entirely peaceful. It is a matter of exposing their deviance and deception to the public, and then hitting the streets. An enemy can’t be defeated unless it remains in the shadows, striking at will. Directing public light at the private global banking cartel’s evil influence over nations that are thought to be free and independent by the people is the only way to bring an end to their crimes, and treachery against Mankind.
A new civilization based on the divine values of freedom, justice, truth, and mutual respect among nations, and private institutions, can’t be born unless we all come together as global citizens and fight back against the unlawful rule of the private global banking cartel. Our countries are suffering because of their greed and ruthless control.
The austerity measures that are being called for by the banks and the elite is bringing chaos onto the streets of Europe on a scale never before seen, and it won’t be long before America enters the stage. We are nearing the moment when the globalist conspirators behind the plans for a new world order will openly declare the end of America. When they do, we shall declare the end of them, and fight for the rebirth of America, and all of Mankind.
Only an order based on the rule of law and freedom should be accepted. The conspiratorial elite intend to achieve a new world order through this period of engineered chaos not by law, but by brutal force because it is the only way to impose a criminal, bank-owned government on a global scale. Despite their rhetoric, these devilish traitors are not visionary thinkers because corrupt designs for a world state isn’t new in history. Their arrogance is a cover. They will fail hard. And America will be set free from bondage, along with other nations.
“This is global government, a private corporate global government, taking over every major society with the same formula. It is fraudulent, and it must be resisted, or we have no future. We cannot allow this new dark age to begin,” says radio host Alex Jones in a YouTube video message entitled “It’s the Bankers or Us.” Watch his message, and spread it.
There is a peaceful global revolution against the private global banking cartel, and it can’t be stopped. Join it and help everyone live free, or die a slave under the empire of debt.
DERIVATIVES : The Debt Bomb
The derivatives market is the Las Vegas of the world's financial super elite, worth anywhere between 2 to 8 quadrillion dollars compared to about 70 trillion dollars of world GDP. We look at the so-called financial innovations of Wall Street from Collateralized Debt Obligations to Mortgage Backed Securities.
We also look at US government's complicity; White House and Congress both vested interests not only as recipients of Wall Street largess in the form of campaign donations but as major players with criminal asymmetrical information and influence advantages.

DHS Has Now Acquired Enough Bullets To Wage 30 Year War!!
Americans will be caught in the middle between rioters and the police state
By encouraging mass dependency on the welfare state, the Obama administration is ensuring that nationwide rioting due to a large-scale collapse of the food stamp program will “justify” an explosive expansion of the police state.
The administration’s goal to dramatically increase food stamp enrollment, officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), follows a strategy called pressure from above and below, in which the government deliberately creates problems in order to offer “solutions” which only expand government powers at the expense of individual rights.
The government’s “solution” to nationwide rioting due to a crash in the food stamp system will no doubt involve a federalized police state takeover, perhaps even martial law, with Department of Homeland Security tanks and VIPR squads roaming America’s streets to supposedly “restore order” out of the chaos while ignoring the Bill of Rights with impunity.
Regional “mini-riots” have already occurred during an electronics benefit transfer (EBT) system glitch last Saturday.
Now that over 47.7 million Americans, nearly 1/6th of the U.S. population, are dependent on food assistance and that the United States Department of Agriculture, which oversees SNAP, ordered states to withhold electronic transfers of benefits for the month of November until further notice, the rise of the police state under the guise of riot response may very well come into fruition.
“The hidden objective will be to expand the power of the bureaucracy and to move the country closer to the ultimate goal of total government,” wrote G. Edward Griffin in a related essay.
The government’s deliberate push for welfare dependency is obvious considering that the USDA spent vast amounts of taxpayer money to encourage illegal immigrants to apply for food stamps through television and print ads.
On July 19, 2012, the Daily Caller reported that the USDA began working with the Mexican government to “increase participation in SNAP.”
Knowing that there was more to the story, Judicial Watch made a Freedom of Information Act request the next day asking for “any and all records and communications” relating to the USDA/Mexico food stamp partnership.
Nine months later, Judicial Watch received welfare promotional documents including a Spanish-language flyer targeted to illegal immigrants, telling them that they do not need to “divulge information” regarding their “immigration status” in order to receive welfare benefits for their children.
The USDA was running Spanish-language television ads promoting the food stamp program to illegal immigrants as early as 2006, during the Bush administration.
Once Obama took over, however, welfare enrollment exploded.
“Since President Obama came into office, SNAP participation has increased at 10 times the rate of job creation,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “This explosive growth in both the SNAP enrollment and federal cost of the program is alarming.”
This skyrocketing increase in government dependency is no accident.
By pushing for massive enrollment into SNAP, the Obama administration is making a sizable number of people dependent on welfare to the point where they will riot if they are denied access to food stamps, which the government controls at whim.
The government can therefore trigger violent food stamp riots, either intentionally or through incompetence, and DHS can exploit the ensuing chaos to expand its power while unleashing its stockpile of armored tanks and two billion rounds of ammunition onto We the People.
Under a two-prong attack of pressure from above and pressure from below, the American people will be in serious danger of losing their lives, their rights and what remains of the republic.

U.S. Army Training to Fight Black Americans
"Doomsday Disneyland" facility used as practice ground for civil unrest
by Paul Joseph Watson | July 17, 2014
A promotional video touting FEMA’s emergency response capabilities shows U.S. National Guard troops training to detain unruly African-American citizens in prison camps before handing them over to police.
The video appears on the official YouTube channel for Guardian Centers, an 830 acre “disaster preparedness and tactical training validation center” located in Georgia which is routinely used by FEMA and other government agencies to practice emergency response procedures.
After the 2 minute mark in the clip, the scene cuts to a black woman who is struggling to escape from the clutches of a uniformed soldier. The area is surrounded by concertina wire and guarded by other troops.
The clip then shows the woman, along with another African-American, being handed over to local police before being driven away.
Described by CNN as the “doomsday Disneyland,” Guardian Centers is a mock city complete with a subway station that “allow(s) a variety of responders to do a variety of drills in one location.”
The sight of National Guard troops training to detain Americans in prison camps is unlikely to quell concerns that authorities are preparing for domestic disorder.
Back in 2012, we reported on FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, a U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers. The document makes numerous references to how government agencies like the DHS, ICE and FEMA will be involved in the domestic internment of U.S. citizens during “civil support operations.”
A second US Army Military Police manual that was leaked months later also outlined how military assets would be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.
U.S. troops and National Guard also worked with local police to incarcerate Americans in detention camps during drills Alex Jones covered in 1999 in Oakland, California.
A report produced in 2008 by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.
Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border.
During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”
Despite innumerable indications that the federal government is making preparations for riots, the Department of Homeland Security denied last year that it was gearing up for domestic disorder. In 2011, DHS chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.
In the video below, Alex Jones highlights how the Guardian Centers video is yet another startling indication that authorities in the United States are preparing for civil unrest as America increasingly begins to resemble a militarized police state.

Dylan Ratigan's Epic Rant on the International Banking Cartel and Political Corruption
Obama, the Cloward-Piven Strategy, and the New World Order
“Barack Obama is Destroying Our Economy on Purpose,” an interview with author James Simpson.
On March 9, Brannon Howse of Worldview Radio interviewed author James Simpson. Entitled “Barack Obama is Destroying Our Economy on Purpose,” Howse’s interview of Simpson concentrated on Columbia University professors Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven who wrote an article in 1966 for The Nation magazine. “The article was published on May 2, 1966 and laid out what is now known as the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’. The plan calls for the destruction of capitalism in America by swelling the welfare rolls to the point of collapsing our economy and then implementing socialism by nationalizing many private institutions,” explains a synopsis on the Worldview Radio website. “Cloward and Piven studied Saul Alinsky just like Hillary Clinton and President Obama.”
Alinsky is considered to be the founder of modern community organizing in America. Alinsky’s teachings influenced Obama early in his career as a community organizer on the far South Side of Chicago. Obama worked for Gerald Kellman’s Developing Communities Project where he learned and taught Alinsky’s methods for community organizing. Obama would later work for ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
According to Sol Stern of the Manhattan Institute, ACORN is a modern successor of the radical 1960’s “New Left” and holds a “1960’s-bred agenda of anti-capitalism” to be implemented through “undisguised authoritarian socialism.”
It is a brand of “undisguised authoritarian socialism” supported by the establishment. As the Union News reported last October, ACORN receives funding from the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity supported — to the tune $9,859,453 — by the globalist George Soros and his Soros Fund Charitable Foundation.
“Soros is the visible side of a vast and nasty secret network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe, centered in the British House of Windsor,” writes William Engdahl. According to Engdahl, Soros “is part of a tightly knit financial mafia — ‘mafia,’ in the sense of a closed masonic-like fraternity of families pursuing common aims.”
As Antony Sutton documented (Wall Street & the Bolshevik Revolution), the very fount of “authoritarian socialism” was created and lavishly funded by the bankers. “The involvement of the Rockefellers with their supposed blood enemies, the Communists, dates back to the Bolshevik Revolution,” notes Gary Allen (None Dare Call it Conspiracy, chapter 6). “The Federal Reserve-CFR insiders began pushing to open up Communist Russia to U.S. traders soon after the revolution.”
In addition, the bankers have supported “communism” in the United States. Considering this, it should come as no surprise the anti-capitalist “Cloward-Piven Strategy” was published by The Nation, a magazine with a well-documented connection to the CIA. As researcher Bob Feldman notes, The Nation is connected to the National Endowment for Democracy, a CIA front group involved in overthrowing countries around the world by way of “color revolution.” The CIA has a history of collaboration with the Ford Foundation (see James Petras: “The Ford Foundation and the CIA: A documented case of philanthropic collaboration with the Secret Police”).
In 1954, Rowan Gaither of the Ford Foundation told Reese Commission investigator Norman Dodd that “the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United States so that we can comfortably be merged with the Soviet Union.”
This merging with the Soviet Union (or more accurately, “authoritarian socialism”) has nothing to do with the sort of communism taught in school textbooks — a dictatorship of the proletariat and the workers — but rather it is an authoritarian control system engineered by the bankers and the global elite. “This new and complete Revolution we contemplate can be defined in a very few words. It is … outright world-socialism, scientifically planned and directed,” H.G. Wells wrote in The New World Order.
It is a mistake to believe the Cloward-Piven Strategy is scheme cooked up by academic Marxists of “New Left” bent dedicated to the destruction of capitalism in the name of some sort of vaguely defined humanitarianism. In fact, “the destruction of capitalism in America by swelling the welfare rolls to the point of collapsing our economy and then implementing socialism by nationalizing many private institutions” is a meticulous plan on the part of the global elite to consolidate power and destroy all opposition.
It has nothing to do with liberating the proletariat but rather subjecting them to banker engineered “world-socialism, scientifically planned and directed” and devised to transform the planet into a banker dominated high-tech prison gulag.

Obama Launches Border Crisis To Destroy America
Treason: America Destroyed by
The Globalist Created 'Humanitarian' Immigration Crisis: Why This Is Happening Now
(Truthstream Media.com) Behind the endless throngs of desperate Central American children arriving on the U.S. border and a steady wave of illegal immigrants from Mexico and beyond is a covert plan for global economic warfare -- those building up the world of globalization are tearing down the sovereignty and financial strength of the United States and Europe to make way for the coming corporate new world order.
A generation of sending American jobs offshore under NAFTA, GATT and the WTO, dumping cheap corn on Mexico thereby destroying millions of farming jobs and unleashing disruptive retailers like Wal-mart upon the fragile economies of Latin America have created turmoil, uncertainty and rivers of human migration... and along with it bitter tension and discord over the dynamics of immigration, illegal immigration and the struggle for a lasting standard of living under the New World Order.
Federal Fraud Against Small Businesses with Lloyd Chapman
Authoritarian globalism, not terrorism, is the biggest threat America and the Western world faces. Terrorism is an invented distraction to keep the police and military guards occupied, and a government trick whose purpose is to scare the people into giving up their natural rights and accept the total government takeover of their lives and society.
When we read that nations like Libya and Iran are rogue regimes, which are regimes that pose a threat to the lawless international banking establishment, we should remember that America was a revolutionary nation and a rogue regime of its own day in the eyes of the financial tyrants. Back when America was a free and independent nation and not a mercenary nation for the bloodsucking global private central bankers it did not start large wars or slander other nations. But those days were over when the private Federal Reserve Bank was established in 1913. Soon after America became a puppet for the criminal internationalist bankers and oligarchs, and began to lose its soul.
Nearly a century after the creation of the monstrous Fed, America is on the verge of starting a new world war in the Middle East to protect the interests of its global oligarchical masters. Regimes that are not subservient to the lawless international banking establishment have to be eliminated and destroyed.
The road to World War III and the centralized global government that is being designed to take shape after the war is over has been paved with the blood of innocent Americans who were murdered on September 11, 2001 by the tricksters and traitors in the United States government.
The September 11 attacks made clear three facts: the total loss of representative and lawful government, the planned destruction of America’s constitutional republic, and the beginning of a new dictatorial order based on the total subversion of civil society to an Orwellian world state controlled and owned by the global private banking system and the monopolistic corporations that profit from this unfair system.
There is a globalist war against America, but the weapons are fear, propaganda, and disinformation, not bombs and cruise missiles. The political use of state terrorism and fear against the American people by the political, financial and military establishment in Washington means that the hijacked U.S. government is afraid of the American people. The rulers in Washington have not only betrayed the interests of the American people, but they are waging a full-scale war against the American people and against the constitutional institutions of America.
The English essayist William Hazlitt said that in times of tyranny the interests of the people and the interests of the government are separated and the government by nature becomes the main enemy of the people. Hazlitt:
Whenever the people are betrayed, robbed and murdered by their political leaders there is a need for a revolution. Putting off the inevitable solution to tyranny only makes the correction more painful and the suffering of the people more extreme. The terror of change is hard to overcome but survival depends on it. If the people do not act quickly and aggressively to recover their freedoms and retake their government then they will be destroyed by their political overlords. We are seeing this in America. The country is being deliberately brought down to its knees. A controlled demolition and collapse of America’s constitutional government and American society is under away.
II. The Deliberate Disintegration and Destruction of America: The Eight Phases of America’s Controlled Collapse
Below I will briefly list the eight phases of America’s controlled collapse and disintegration and the five fronts in the war against America. Some of these phases have already been completed but not all may come to fruition if the American people are informed of the threats to their liberty, life, and country by the hijacked federal government and if they collectively resist their enslavement. The same applies for the people of Canada, England, Australia, and other Western countries.
Phase One: Militarizing The Police And Turning The Police Against The People
In the beginning of the 1970s, after the Civil Rights movement achieved victories for the people, the U.S. government began infringing on the civil rights of the people all over again, and this time it was done under the cover of the “War on Drugs.” This war is not a faithful and honest war but a political war that was deliberately designed to take away the liberties of the American people, mostly black people, and unjustly imprison them in order to raise profits for a new prison industry.
Through the false and illegal war on drugs the police of every state has been brainwashed, militarized, brought under federal control, and received billions of dollars to chase around drug addicts and intimidate poor people. Naturally, this has created hostility between the people and the police. The police is seen as an occupying army on American streets which is an accurate representation because the government that they work for and defend has been hijacked and taken over by criminal bankers and globalist oligarchs.
Phase Two: Mercenary-Military Takeover of America’s Constitutional Government Through The CIA and Military-Industrial Complex
The biggest lie that the U.S. government tells the American people is this one: We work for you. Nothing could be more false. The federal government works for the American people today in the same way that the Soviet Union worked for the American people during the Cold War. The truth is that America’s chief political representatives and leaders are murderers and state terrorists, not protectors of America and the U.S. constitution. They are enemies of the public order and the common good of all.
Ever since President John F. Kennedy was murdered by the CIA the American government has not worked for the interests of the American people, but for a fascist clique and politically connected war racketeers who operate the CIA and the military-industrial complex. President Harry S. Truman correctly referred to the CIA as the “American Gestapo.” It is led by anti-American traitors and war criminals who would prefer America to be a dictatorship than a free society.
Phase Three: The Complete Banking Takeover and Financial Rape of America
By now most people realize that the big banks on Wall Street robbed America and fleeced the American people. Watch this great interview of author Nomi Prins by Alex Jones on May 16, 2011 called ” The Federal Reserve Holding America Hostage.” Also, read these three articles of mine: Banksters Raped A Blindfolded America, Private Global Bankers = The Priesthood of Modern Western Civilization, and Greg Palast: “Remove the Bloodsuckers.” And watch these videos by Alex Jones called The Banking Cartels Takeover: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3.
Part Four: Instituting a Regime of Repression and Terror, Enacting Emergency Law, Suspending the Constitution, Enlarging Executive Power, And Creating New Federal Agencies like Homeland Security to Spy on the American People and Treat Them Like Cattle
This phase speaks for itself. Professor Peter Dale Scott and others have written about the plan by Dick Cheney and the treasonous faction in the U.S. government to go ahead with Continuity of Government plans. I call this the COG in the War Machine. Read Professor Scott’s article, Supplanting the United States Constitution: War, National Emergency and “Continuity of Government.” And watch John Whitehead’s informative interview of constitutional scholar and author Bruce Fein about his book ‘ American Empire Before the Fall ‘: Part 1; Part 2.
Phase Five: Stage False Flag Attacks To Increase The Power of The Government and Frighten The People
The tactic of false flag operations is a no-brainer if you’re a tyrant. And it is self-explanatory so I won’t go into much detail. Articles to read: ‘America: A State of Terror’ – ‘Governments ADMIT That They Carry Out False Flag Terror’ – ‘Top Government Insider: Bin Laden Died In 2001, 9/11 A False Flag.’
Phase Six: The Criminalization of Patriotism and Dissent
Alex Jones has talked about the fact that the U.S. terror state is now demonizing and targeting people inside America. The myth of the “White Al-Qaeda” is now being spread in the U.S. media in anticipation for future attacks against political resisters. The American white man is being called a domestic terrorist, a racist, and an extremist for refusing to submit to the criminal government in Washington. Expressing patriotism in ways other than supporting the troops and being informed about the Constitution is viewed as a threat to the treasonous establishment in D.C.
Phase Seven: The U.S. Government’s War on Questioning and Human Reason
Phase Seven: Rounding Up Political Dissidents Into Concentration Camps, Disarmament, Torture, and Wiping Out The Enemies of The New Authoritarian Regime
To understand what America’s concentration camps might look like and what they will be used for, watch this 18 minute video of Chile’s concentration camps under General Pinochet ‘s regime.
The government threat of disarming the American people to prevent them from fighting for their freedoms is very real, but some threats cannot be carried out. Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said near the beginning of World War II that “You cannot invade America. There is a rifle behind every blade of grass.” This fact hasn’t changed in seventy years.
Phase Eight: Total Slavery For The People, Acceptance of New Government Structure, New Currency, And New Way of Life.
If all goes according to plan, America will be no more. A North American Union with a whole new political system and laws is being planned for North America, and it will then be connected with the European Union and other global bodies to form a unified and authoritarian world state.
Many people believe a new world state is necessary for humanity to survive and for the global community to prosper in these challenging times. The people who are involved in the conspiracy against America, Canada, and Mexico do not believe that they are committing evil by lying to the people and keeping the agenda for world government a secret. They honestly believe they are doing good. Obviously, they are mistaken because good deeds are transparent. Secrecy breeds corruption and tyranny. A global government controlled and owned by a ruthless and cunning private international banking establishment along with multinational corporations will be an absolute disaster for the human race, much like the Soviet Union was a disaster for Russia in the last century.
III. The Deliberate Disintegration and Destruction of America: The Five
Fronts In The War Against America
Front One: Psychological Front – Psychological Warfare
There is a concerted, deliberate, and systematic effort to psychologically condition the American people into accepting the war on terror as a justified war, and the attack on their freedoms as reasonable and good. The brainwashing of the American citizenry began long before September 11, 2001, but the neocon gang and Bush administration took it to an extreme, which has backfired against the dark establishment in Washington.
Dutch-American psychoanalyst Joost A.M. Meerloo, author of the 1956 book, “The Rape of the Mind,”wrote in a chapter called ‘The Cold War Against the Mind’ that totalitarian regimes act irrationally in order to fool their enemies, both foreign and domestic, and to keep people terrorized with panic and confusion. Meerloo:
Psychological tricks and disinformation campaigns are being directed against the American people because undermining the psychological health of the American people is one of the goals of the traitors in power.
Front Two: Economic Front – Economic Warfare
Simply put, a poor population is more likely to be dependent on the government to meet the basic needs of life than a self-sufficient and wealthy population. Besides tyranny, poverty is the greatest enemy of freedom. The economic war against the American people has led to massive unemployment, housing foreclosures, homelessness, and general impoverishment. It is important to know that the economic crash in 2008 did not happen by accident but a result of government policy. And the bank bailouts were not intended to provide jobs but save the dysfunctional and corrupt banking system. America’s political and financial ruling elite is beyond ruthless. They will stop at nothing from crushing the American people and turning America into a bankrupt, poor, and miserable police state.
Front Three: Terror Front – Political Warfare
State terror and the political use of fear is common in authoritarian and unpopular regimes. A government staged terrorist attack keeps the people in a state of panic and confusion, afraid for their lives, and pleading for security from the government. What more can tyrants ask for? Using state terrorism to resolve social and political problems is a win-win-win formula. Nothing else equals the magical spell that is cast on the people through the instrument of fear.
Front Four: Illegal Immigration Front – Demographic Warfare
Immigration is good. America was built on immigration. But an excess of anything is bad. The problem with America’s immigration system today is that it has been hijacked by globalist conspirators who are using immigration as a political weapon to weaken the American people’s resolve to deal with tough economic and political issues, and to further divide the country into the rich and poor, white and Mexican, citizen and non-citizen, etc. A wise and just policy is not being taken to address the immigration problem by the establishment in Washington because they do not want to do anything about it. Their goal is to destabilize and ultimately destroy America, not protect and save it.
If Mexico’s economy was not destroyed by NAFTA and other corporatist policies that benefit a small financial and political elite in Mexico, America, and Canada then there would be more jobs for the Mexican people in Mexico and less incentive to migrate to America to work. It is important to understand that both the Mexican people and the American people are the victims in the illegal immigration crisis which is connected to the larger economic crisis.
Front Five: Media Front – Information Warfare
There is not much that needs to be said here. It is self-evident that the mass media is interested in propaganda rather than informing the people about what their government is doing in their name. I view the deliberate withholding of information that proves that America is controlled by traitors who murdered Americans on September 11, 2001 as a crime against humanity. It is the greatest betrayal of the people’s trust.
IV. The War For The Hearts And Minds of The American People
The murder of John F. Kennedy was a tragedy and a crime against humanity, but it is nothing compared to the murder of an entire nation. America is being lined up to be killed and destroyed just as JFK was on November 22, 1963.
But America is not going down without a fight. The war for the hearts and minds of the people is being fought every day. One of the great generals in the infowar is Alex Jones. People wonder why Alex Jones is angry at the U.S. government and why he is always ranting. They say Alex is eccentric and psychotic for being mad but I think this criticism is stupid, backward and crazy because anger is a natural reaction to treason and grand deception. The American people are treated like fools and cattle. Alex Jones is passionate and mad for good reason. “Passion,” said William Hazlitt, “is the essence, the chief ingredient in moral truth.”
If you are not angry then you are not informed. And when you are not informed you make it easier for tyrants to lie to you, rob you, enslave you, and kill you.

Why is the WTO Bad For You?
The stated aim of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is to promote free trade and stimulate economic growth. The actions, method, and fundamentalism, of the World Trade Organization evokes strong antipathies. Among other things, the WTO is accused of widening the sociological gap between rich and poor it claims to be fixing.

A little more than a year ago, Rawesome Foods, a health food co-op based in Venice, California was the target of an armed raid by several agencies, and the resulting video went viral.
On August 3, 2011, Rawesome experienced another multi-agency raid, but this one resulted in the arrest of the establishment’s owner James Stewart.
Rawesome Foods Raided... Again
Stewart, and Sharon Palmer, the farmer who supplies him with raw goat milk, are being held on bails in excess of $100,000 and are each charged with four felonies and several more misdemeanors. Some examples of the charges are “processing unpasteurized milk,” “improper labeling of food,” and “improper egg temperatures.”
The government has kept pursuing Stewart and his club for years, despite a lack of any reports of illness or injury from consumption of his foods. Rawesome members argue that they are part of a private club, not subject to government regulation, and that they are being persecuted for their alternative lifestyles.
The modern environmental movement is nothing more than organized crime bent on harassing businesses while redirecting public sentiment towards petty issues rather than real enviro-catastrophes like genetic modification.
Green Police Mafia Raid Gibson Guitars
From the Wall Street Journal:
Federal agents swooped in on Gibson Guitar Wednesday, raiding factories and offices in Memphis and Nashville, seizing several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars. The Feds are keeping mum, but in a statement yesterday Gibson’s chairman and CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, defended his company’s manufacturing policies, accusing the Justice Department of bullying the company. “The wood the government seized Wednesday is from a Forest Stewardship Council certified supplier,” he said, suggesting the Feds are using the aggressive enforcement of overly broad laws to make the company cry uncle.
It isn’t the first time that agents of the Fish and Wildlife Service have come knocking at the storied maker of such iconic instruments as the Les Paul electric guitar, the J-160E acoustic-electric John Lennon played, and essential jazz-boxes such as Charlie Christian’s ES-150. In 2009 the Feds seized several guitars and pallets of wood from a Gibson factory, and both sides have been wrangling over the goods in a case with the delightful name “United States of America v. Ebony Wood in Various Forms.”

DETROIT Case Study - The Deindustrialization of America and Fall of the Republic
A Dream Revered
Detroit...take a good look, it's what's instore for you
An epic semi-fictional docu-drama about a retired auto worker who finds courage to take a stand when he has a phenomenal experience with a Real American Hero. This film was created in response to the call by InfoWars.com that will wake people up through Operation Paul Revere.
The Economic Collapse
The decay of society is so much harder to quantify than economic decline is. The government keeps lots of statistics on things like unemployment and inflation, but it really does not keep track of how sick and twisted people are becoming.
In the old days, if you met a stranger out on the streets you knew that you could almost certainly trust that person. But these days if you let your child wander one aisle over while you are shopping at Wal-Mart there is a chance that someone will try to abduct her.
Something has changed.
In our major cities, if you walk up to someone at random there is a decent chance that person will be a pervert or a sicko, and most Americans know that this is true at a gut level. Almost everyone is very leery of “strangers” these days. It has gotten to the point where we are all afraid of one another.
Just try this some time….
In a major U.S. city, walk right up to people on the street, look them in the eyes and try to introduce yourself.
What will happen when you do that?
In many instances, people will literally run away from you.
We are scared to death to interact with people that we do not know, and the reality is that those fears are way too often justified.
The character of the American people is decaying at a rapid pace, and the evidence of this is all around us.
The following are 10 signs that America is decomposing right in front of our eyes….
#1 As the economy crumbles, in many U.S. cities desperate people are increasingly resorting to violent acts in an attempt to survive. So far this year, violent crime in Washington D.C. has risen by 40 percent. Robberies at gunpoint have more than doubled compared to the same time period last year.
#2 But it is not just in the cities where you will find crazies. A recent Daily Mail article described a very disturbing incident which took place recently in North Dakota. Two crack-fueled perverts abducted and murdered a 43-year-old math teacher named Sherry Arnold….
After they got Arnold into the car, they choked her to death and then buried her body in a shallow grave in North Dakota.
Why would anyone do something like that?
#3 Unfortunately, sickos will even be found working for the government. Just as so many of us feared, TSA workers are actually purposely selecting attractive women to go through the body scanners so that they can admire their naked bodies. The following are actual quotations from official TSA complaints….
-“I feel I was targeted by the TSA employee to go through the see-you-naked machine because I am a semi-attractive female.”
-“The screener appeared to enjoy the process of picking someone rather than doing true random screening. I felt this was inappropriate. A woman behind me was also “randomly selected.”
-“TSA staff ‘trolling’ the lines looking for people to pull out was unprofessional.”
-“I know he went to that room to see my naked body through the machine with the other guy.”
-“When I looked around, I saw that there were only women that were “told” to go through this machine. There were no men.”
One woman was recently forced to go through the body scanner three times because the TSA workers wanted to get a really good look at her “cute figure“.
Isn’t about time that we admitted that the TSA is a massive failure?
#4 The American people seem more depressed than ever. So are we the most depressed nation in the entire world? The U.S. has the highest percentage of women taking antidepressants of any country in the world, and kids in the U.S. are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants than kids in Europe are.
#5 The gang problem in the United States has never been worse. According to the FBI, the number of gang members in the United States has risen by 40 percent since 2009 and there are now a total of 1.4 million gang members living inside this country.
#6 Millions of other young people are not able to find jobs once they finish school and end up financially dependent on their parents. Today, record numbers of young adults are living at home. Many of these young people end up very disillusioned and very frustrated. Right now, more than 30 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 34 age bracket are currently living at home with their parents. That is not good news for the future of this country.
#7 All over America, criminals are becoming bolder and more desperate. The following is a report about one serial home invader from the Washington Post….
As the economy gets even worse, home invasions will become even more common. You might want to learn how to defend yourself.
#8 These days thieves will steal literally anything. Each night in cities all over the nation more street lights are going out as thieves strip the copper wiring right out of them. In the San Francisco area, one very ambitious group of thieves actually swiped a copper bell that weighs 2.7 tons.
#9 One of the clearest signs that America is decomposing is the stunning decline of major cities such as Detroit. In response to my recent article about the death of Detroit, a reader identified as Bill posted the following….
On that same article, another reader identified as “Disappointed” shared his thoughts on the decline of that once great city….
#10 But it isn’t just Detroit that is falling apart. This kind of thing is happening all over the country. A reader identified as Golden Child recently left the following comment on my website….
Sadly, this is just the beginning.
As the economic decline of this nation accelerates, people are going to become much more desperate.
And desperate people do desperate things.
...ALL BY DESIGN
Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.
MORE: AGENDA 21
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” – Maurice Strong, 1992
It’s a history where the bankers have embedded themselves into the economy, building up infrastructure for a time, then bringing down the system within the United States in concert with the international economic warfare and the rise of global government.
It’s the collapse of Detroit, and like the Great Depression of the 20th Century, the looming Greater Depression of the 21st Century, and the collapse of Building 7 and the Twin Towers, it was a staged collapse. This stage of the game is De-industrialization. (Article Continued Below)
Obama Lied About Saving Detroit
MORE: Climate Change
This week marks the one year anniversary of the release of emails and documents from the
Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia that we now know as Climategate.
Inside this agenda is a plan for global government to emerge from the ashes of the once great United States and for the era of national sovereignty itself to subside. To achieve their goal, an economic squeeze is placed upon the nation and environmental pretexts are being used to strangle independence and viability– in America it has been the NAFTA, GATT, WTO and United Nations treaties that have wrecked her integrity and pillaged her productiveness.
A subsequent volume of ‘Fall of the Republic’ will further detail the staged-collapse of America’s economy, and Detroit is the most-detailed ground analysis yet undertaken by the Infowars team in preparation and research for the film. As this video of Detroit shows, its decline began in the Late 1950s and early 1960s with the collapse of the Packard Plant. We witnessed boarded-up abandoned houses, cities being reclaimed by nature and ethnic demography hardening into areas divided into sub-cultures and readied for control through community demagogues.
A key agent of the Rockefeller family, Dr. Richard Day, the National Medical Director of the Rockefeller-sponsored Planned Parenthood, told a meeting in March 1969 that American industry will be sabotaged and shown to be uncompetitive. He said:
This is Agenda 21 in action—the agenda for the 21st Century as set by the globalists who run the United Nations and other key international mechanisms. The bankers most assuredly created the crisis now underway:
Across the street from the Ford Piquette plant where the first industrial assembly line for mass-production was born, we talked to locals riding through on their bikes in the crisp of fall. Up the block, old Packards were buried under fall leaves on the side of the overpass. One guy looked out of a job, his clothes were disheveled and I wondered whether or not he might be homeless (he wasn’t). After he began to rattle off a short history of the development of the engine valves, he told me that he was formerly a master technician in one of the plants. Now, only a relative fraction of those jobs remain.
Schemes for ‘planned obsolescence’ and other changes in the big Auto sector contributed to a competitive disadvantage in a market that became increasingly globalized and vulnerable to the low wage workers set-up to take over production. Not only the Auto Sector itself, but the wide array of related and complimentary industry was hit. Part makers and sub-contractors all saw their jobs evaporated overseas. That meant not only competition with low-wage Third World nations (via “that giant sucking sound” Ross Perot warned about), but it also meant wrestling with the nebulous global octopus sucking out the heart of America through treaties, trade agreements, debt instruments, loans, aid and more all controlled through binding international vehicles such as the IMF.
Today, Detroit looks like a war zone. The slowly rotting corpse of what had been America’s backbone, the leading city in the industrial “Rust Belt.” Today, those cities are on the decline and scheduled to be bulldozed, shrunk and returned to nature. Detroit, Flint, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Memphis. These centers of production and high-wage working class jobs are now collapsing in every sense. Their city governments are broke. Foreclosures range around 1 in 5 in the worst areas. Neighbors are in decline. The last jobs are about to go.
[efoods]One local told us about the recent suicide of the head of a failed plant in the Del Ray neighborhood inside Detroit. The factories jobs had been lost and unemployment benefits were about to run out. As an outsider, it was becoming difficult to keep track of the many former factories, standing as relics. I wasn’t clear about the details of the scenario, but the desperation seemed to underscore the worst parts of the Great Depression many hoped was gone for good. Many areas, including the collapsed pillars on the top floor of the Packard plant, literally resemble Roman ruins. It is a study of what once was, a city based on an abortive concept. Detroit is frozen in decline, the post-industrial society has fully sunk in. Slow death since the onset of globalization had atrophied a sector once poised as a boon of wealth.
It’s not a question in Detroit of the price of socialist management or the folly of capitalism’s greed. Big Auto could have been easily saved, just as the home foreclosures could have been stopped. Instead, Washington turned over all financial control and gave out trillions to Wall Street and foreign, globalists-owned banks. The distinction is the intentional shedding of an entire productive sector by the same Robber Baron class who raised up American industry, bled it over the alter of the global economy and looted its assets, drying up its labor opportunities, and leaving a shell for historians to study and thrill seekers to marvel at.
President Obama, while publicly positioning himself as a supporter of middle class workers, privately worked to destroy unions, cut benefits and bust opposition. His promises to renegotiate NAFTA were exposed during the 2008 campaign as mere “campaign rhetoric” after economic advisor Austan Goolsbee told Canadian officials that no real “change” would take place. Denials from the Obama camp were made, but Canadian officials reconfirmed that these statements were made.
Now, under the auspices of climate change policies and sustainability efforts, including emissions cuts, fuel standards and other ‘green’ production requirements, Detroit Auto is forced to be competitive within the confines of lower performance, higher cost green chic designs. The public has proved less than enthusiastic about these measures. The government-owned GM and Chrysler will be shells of their former selves, and Ford will be forced to tow the line and face the danger of being handed off piecemeal to firms like Italy’s Fiat, a company deeply embedded in the Bilderberg group which has long worked to dominate in unified, no barrier common-markets.
Experts featured in ‘Fall of the Republic’ have explained that the biggest key to Detroit Auto’s collapse was the parasitical investment banking structure. Although CEO and corporate greed factors in to problems auto has had, targeted de-competitiveness and the weight of ill-advised leveraged and derivative-based assets are what brought auto down.
William K. Black, former bank regulator, trader Max Keiser and historian Webster Tarpley all explain how the firewall between investment and commercial banking that was set-up under the Glass Steagall Act in the wake of the Great Depression was destroyed by then-Clinton, now-Obama financial goons Larry Summers and Robert Rubin
Max Keiser, Alan Watt and John Perkins explain how public projects were shifted from public good measures and converted into vehicles for the transfer of publicly held assets to private hands. Bought-and-paid politicians in all countries of the world have been involved in deregulating and privatizing water and utility services, they have handed over land seized through imminent domain to partner companies and looted the pensions and public welfare systems. In short, the takeover by elites– including royalty, robber barons, Wall Street and environmental organizations– has indeed taken over the economy through the current economic crisis.
Foreclosures nationwide are expected to go suddenly from 1 million homes to 6 million homes. Detroit, Flint and the others are canaries in the coalmine, in terms of the American economic landscape.
As ‘Fall of the Republic’ details, and key subjects in the film, including Gerald Celente, detail: a nation producing almost nothing, importing nearly everything and printing money based on nothing is one scheduled for collapse and subject to reintegration into the global structure.
The sound of the circling IMF vultures loom overhead; its target has weakened. It has stopped moving and collapsed on the floor. If it doesn’t get back up soon, it never will. This is America’s last chance.

How Wall Street Bankrupted Detroit Interview with Richard Wolff
Abby Martin speaks with Richard Wolff, economist and Professor Emeritus at the University of
Massachusetts about the recent district court ruling on Detroit's bankruptcy and how it could affect the pensions
of thousands of city workers.
Though a decade ago civil servants and union members would never have believed it could happen, the stark reality of the situation came to pass this morning.
We now know the answer to the question: What happens when a government makes promises it can’t keep and borrows so much money it can never be repaid?
This morning a judge overseeing the City of Detroit’s fiscal sustainability ruled that the City can be afforded bankruptcy protection, meaning that all 100,000 of its creditors now stand to lose a significant portion of monies owed to them.
The most notable victims are the tens of thousands of retirees living off of pensions – many of whom will see an 80% obliteration of the retirement funds they believed they’d receive until they died.
Most of those affected assumed the government would simply find a way to borrow more money or fabricate it out of thin air. They were wrong and now they are paying the price:
Detroit is the first and they have now set a precedent for other cities in similar situations. You can be assured that more will follow.
First it will be the cities. Then the states will go under. And finally, the Grand-Poobah – our own Federal government. Detroit’s debts are pocket change compared to the $200 trillion in future liabilities owed by the United States of America.
If you are depending on a government retirement package to be there for you for the rest of your life, you’d better think again. Over twenty thousand Detroit retirees thought the same thing – and as of today they have been wiped out.
When this crisis hits the Federal Government – and it will – you’d better be ready for them to take drastic measures. This means they’ll be forced to not only cut retirement benefits promised to federal employees, but will make the case that if they have to give up their retirement funds, you’ll have to give up your 401k, IRA or personal savings.
Sounds impossible, right? Congressional members have already gotten the ball rolling on a nationalization of America’s retirement funds, and when they are ready to do it they’ll pass the legislation just like they did when they seized 1/6th of our economy by nationalizing health care.
They are coming for the money – YOUR money – because they will be left with no other choice.
If you’re not planning on a secondary income stream or preserving wealth in the form ofgold and silver, productive land, or other tangible assets, you’ll end up just like the retirees from Detroit. Having additional resources, like a well stocked long-term pantryand a preparedness plan for financial disaster, can mean the difference between living in poverty or thriving when best laid plans fall apart.
Plan for the worst, because that’s what’s coming.

Now retired, Beasley, 67, receives $1,500 a month from that pension. But she’s cutting back on spending after a judge ruled last week that Detroit’s pension funds, like other city creditors, may have to take a hit as the city reorganizes its finances under bankruptcy.
“I think it’s so very unfair,” Beasley said. “We retired expecting to get a certain amount of benefits. Now you’ve pulled the rug out from under us.”

All over America, formerly prosperous communities are being transformed into crime-infested wastelands of poverty and despair. Of course the most famous example of this is Detroit.
At one time, Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city that the world had ever seen and it had the highest per capita income in the entire country. But now it has become a rotting, decaying hellhole that the rest of the planet laughs at. And of course Detroit is far from alone. There are hundreds of other U.S. cities that are suffering a similar fate. In this article, the focus is going to be on Camden, New Jersey, but the truth is that there are lots of other “Detroits” and “Camdens” all over the nation. Jobs and businesses are leaving our cities at a staggering rate, and what is being left behind is poverty, crime and extreme desperation.
Earlier this month, Rolling Stone published an article that took a hard look at the nightmare conditions that exist in Camden. A city that once made Campbell’s soup and some of this nation’s most famous warships is now a national disgrace. The following are six of the best quotes out of that article…
-”In September, its last supermarket closed, and the city has been declared a “food desert” by the USDA. The place is literally dying, its population having plummeted from above 120,000 in the Fifties to less than 80,000 today.”
-”Their home is a city with thousands of abandoned houses but no money to demolish them, leaving whole blocks full of Ninth Ward-style wreckage to gather waste and rats.”
-”With legal business mostly gone, illegal business took hold. Those hundreds of industries have been replaced by about 175 open-air drug markets, through which some quarter of a billion dollars in dope moves every year.”
-”On January 18th, 2011, the city laid off 168 of its 368 police officers, kicking off a dramatic, years-long, cops-versus-locals, house-to-house battle over a few square miles of North American territory that should have been national news, but has not been, likely because it took place in an isolated black and Hispanic ghost town.”
-”After the 2011 layoffs, police went into almost total retreat. Drug dealers cheerfully gave interviews to local reporters while slinging in broad daylight.”
-”The carnage left Camden’s crime rate on par with places like Haiti after its 2010 earthquake, and with other infamous Third World hot spots, as police officials later noticed to their dismay when they studied U.N. statistics.”
You can read the rest of the article right here. But as bad as things have become in Camden, this should not be a surprise to most of you. The reality is that this kind of rot and decay is happening in communities all over the United States.
Over in Detroit, crime has gotten so bad that even the police are telling people to “enter Detroit at your own risk“. When you call the police in Detroit it takes them an average of 58 minutes to respond, and more than 90 percent of the crimes committed in the city end up as unsolved mysteries.
So why is all of this happening?
Well, there are lots of factors involved of course, but the biggest one is the lack of good jobs in these cities.
At one time, Detroit had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the entire nation. But now those days are long gone.
In order to have a middle class, you have got to have middle class jobs.
There is no way around that.
And right now, hordes of young people are graduating from college and discovering that the middle class jobs that they were promised simply are not there.
CNN recently profiled a 37-year-old college graduate named Bobby Bingham. Because he cannot find a good job, he is forced to work four low paying jobs…
Bingham makes approximately $400 a week, which works out to about $20,000 a year. He has come to the conclusion that he may never be able to make enough to support a family…
That deeply saddened my heart when I read that. Here is a young man that wants to get married, have a family and do all the right things, but the economy is so bad that he fears that this may never be possible for him.
As I have written about previously, the economic downturn that we are experiencing right now has hit men particularly hard. The number of men in their prime working years that do not make enough money to support a family is rising with each passing year, and this is causing massive problems in this country.
And when our politicians proclaim that all we need is “more education”, I feel like vomiting. The U.S. population as a whole has more “education” today than it ever has had before.
If you think that “more education” is the answer, then check out the following excerpt from a recent interview with a law school graduate that is making about $40,000 a year and that has about $200,000 in law school debt…
Why did this happen to him? Well, the truth is that there are way, way too many law school graduates. There are not nearly enough good jobs for all of them. In fact, this particular law school graduate deeply regrets ever going to law school and considers it “an extraordinary waste of money”…
But at least he has a job. There are millions of college graduates that do not. And there are hundreds of thousands of other college graduates that are currently working as waiters and waitresses. Large numbers are also working temp jobs or standing behind registers in retail stores.
Over the past decade, tens of thousands of businesses and millions of good jobs have left this country. The quality of the jobs that remain continues to decline at a frightening pace, and most of the new jobs that are being “created” these days are part-time jobs.
But you won’t hear the mainstream media or our most prominent politicians talk about these things much. You won’t hear them talk about the fact that median household income in the United States has fallen for five years in a row or about the fact that the rate of homeownership in the United States has fallen for eight years in a row.
The middle class is dying.
Wake up America.
And even as millions of our jobs have been shipped to the other side of the planet, some of the most prominent “American companies” have been bought up by foreigners. The following list comes from a recent Economy In Crisis article…
Here are some of America’s most famous brands currently held in foreign hands:
Are you starting to get the picture?
Our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted and more than 46 million Americans are now living in poverty.
And if you are waiting for the jokers in Washington D.C. to fix things, you are going to be waiting for a very, very long time.
Over the past several years, both the Democrats and the Republicans have proven again and again that they are basically completely and totally useless. In fact, just about everything that they try to do actually makes our problems even worse.
In just a few days, Barack Obama leaves for a 17 day holiday vacation in Hawaii. Many have criticized him and the members of Congress for taking so much time off, but perhaps that is the best thing that they can do at this point. As long as they are away from Washington D.C., at least they won’t be making things even worse for all the rest of us.

FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
-- Harriet Tubman --
"I freed a thousand slaves; I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves."
Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures.
"A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time,
not on the spot, not here and now and in their calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other
worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the
encroachments of those who would manipulate and control it.”
- Aldous Huxley -
