Poverty, deindustrialization and the New World Order is omnipresent in America. Some of it can be seen in plain sight. Most of it is ignored.
Even with the incredible economic turn around over the last last 3 years, the globalist War on America has done severe damage since the 1970’s. Inflation, dollar devaluation, globalism, endless foreign wars and entaglements have only served the global elite’s dominating goals, weakening America and saddling our nation and its people with unsustainable debt.
Much has been done to increase poverty in America over the last 50 years. The economic reasons should be obvious and resonate to all, but sadly, far too many don’t.
In 1971, Nixon removed the US from the gold standard, which allowed banks to completely create money out of thin air backed by nothing but the sweat and blood of US tax payers burdened with their own debt and increasing taxes to pay interest to the Federal Reserve on the ever increasing National Debt, which hovers around $22 trillion today. That coupled with wasteful spending, special interests, corporate welfare and corrupt politicians have helped add millions to the welfare rolls.
The social aspects of increasing poverty are even more transparent, or atleast, the should be. Debt, drugs, divorce, broken homes, dumbing down of the overfunded and underperforming public education system, violence, crime and mass media manipulation have contributed greatly to poverty in America; and the $22 trillion spent so far on the War on poverty is yet another government sieve, a bottomless pit of pilfering tax dollars that ultimately gets funneled up to the top of the elite food chain, helping the uber rich to get richer, while slowly sinking the middle class into poverty.
This incremental negative impact is felt in our collective pockets every day.
To understand the redirection of America’s economy since the 2016 election, the Great Banker’s Swindle of 2007, the 2008 economic collapse and the criminal banker bailouts, one must focus on the statistics. Some are very good. And some are still worrisome.
Although much has changed positively under the Trump Administration, increased GPD growth, 3% rise in wages, mostly reflected in the lower income brackets, shrinking welfare and food stamp rolls, the reality is that some things, like the national debt and quantatative easing remains to be an ever increasing threat to our Nation.
This threat continues to undermine all of the job growth, rising wages, gains in the stock market, reduction in unemployment and trade negotiations that have helped America flourish under the Trump Administration. The statistics are concerning, potentially forecasting risk of another recession toward the end of 2020 or early 2021, but these are only forecasts. Or I should say, concerns.
Instability caused by the recent bio-weapon, the Pirbright Institute patented corona-virus invented by Erica Bickerton, Sarah Keep, Paul Britton, assigned by Woking and the Pirbright Insitution, (whose patent, No. 10, 130, 701 B2 patented on Novemeber 20, 2018 can be found here at HowardNema.com.)
The Corona-virus was released in China and has shaken global markets and led to a fall in stock prices. As discussed previously in episode 18, Big Pharma Big Profits, this has become an annual ritual occurance, and every year, it shakes the markets.
Markets hate unpredictabilty. Still, the overall picture of America is far brighter than it was under both the Obama and Bush administrations, who exploded the national debt and bled US jobs in favor of globalist agendas and crony corporations, designed to weaken America, increase poverty and unemployment, while increasing the wealth and jobs in foreign economies like China and India.
That said, the numbers are remarkable. Black unemployment is at an all time low hovering around 6%. Hispanic unemployment numbers are even better at nearly 4%. Today, the labor participation rate is at more than 63%, slightly below the all time high of 67.3% in January, 2000. Labor Force Participation Rate in the United States averaged 62.88 percent from 1948 until 2019. The record low labor participation rate of 58.10 percent occured in December of 1954.
The following is a May 5, 2011 article by Dario Barrebi, Poverty in America: Social Changes & Global Crises published on poverties.org
“Looking at poverty in the American continent is essential to better understand how the former colonies have evolved into radically different countries. Country by country, analyzing the social and economic paths taken, we can see the effects of discrimination, land ownership, wealth distribution & corruption.
Investigating poverty in America obviously poses the question of which America we’re looking at: the United States or the continent as a whole. North and South America have experienced extremely different types of colonisation and independence movements which have impacted their level of development until today.
Everything from land ownership to discrimination can be traced back to the colonisation era. If you want to understand the origins of this huge wealth difference between North America and South America, we recommend reading more on the common causes of poverty which still affect pretty much every single continent today.
Poverty in America: Homelessness in the United States
From the 1950s to the early 1970s, poverty in America (i.e. USA) fell continuously as the economy was booming and the average income was rising. This led to a total elimination of absolute poverty in the country. But at the turn of the 21st century, over 1 in 10 American was poor, 20% of whom where African Americans.
The reason for this is that when the 1970s oil crisis hit the USA, poverty climbed up again, only to go down again in the 1990s with the new economic boom. Market liberalization in this mature economy brought more efficiency, while other American developing economies were suffering of its impact.
The rise of urban poverty in America
The 1970s and 1980s decades are also times when poverty in America became concentrated in urban areas, in particular the old, charming industrial centers. At the same time the population also started to change with the arrival of more and more immigrants from Latin America, reshaping the face of poverty. Urban poverty then tripled in ten years and kept on its expansion onto the 1980s decade. It’s now one of the main features of poverty in America (country and continent). As of 1980, nearly 70% of the urban poor were black, 20% were Latinos, and 10% white.
A new face of poverty: immigration and single moms
Another thing that changed: the traditional family structure. Like it or not, things have changed and you won’t force an unhappy woman to stay married to her husband anymore. Although, some governments actually tried to by restricting welfare support to families headed by a married couple (talk about government intervention!). Well, that wasn’t the official goal but it was clearly the effect. And millions of single mothers were dropped from welfare support.
Demographic changes (immigration) as well as changes in the family structure have had a massive impact on poverty in the US for a couple of decades until things finally stabilized. Now their effect is minor, even though immigrants and single mothers (and their kids) still represent much of the poor. But in a stable way, i.e. the numbers don’t change too much. Yey. Oh no, that’s without counting on the effects of the latest economic crisis!
It’s the old “oh when I was a kid we didn’t have TV nor a microwave oven”. But judging today’s poor on 1970s criteria is just completely absurd because we don’t live like we used to in 1970s. Prices are different, education costs hell of a lot more, living standards and norms are totally different. This means that they simply don’t know the definition of poverty.
Speaking of absolute poverty in developed countries is just ridiculous, relative poverty is what matters, in other terms, the capability to fully participate in the life of the nation (having a job, having the Internet and whatnot). Of course the poor today live better than the average in the 1950s, but back then they also used to die of diseases and cancers you can now cure. And today you also need to pay for that somehow.
US poverty line and US welfare
In comparison to other rich countries, the US ranks usually pretty high in the poverty charts (not a good thing). That’s mostly because of the children and the elderly, who fall disproportionately below the poverty line compared to other groups. Time to get a job, kids. The problem is that in most advanced economies child poverty is usually less than 10% whereas in the US it’s been around 20%. It even rose to 25% recently and the country currently counts 1 in 4 children on food stamps. Good days are gone, baby, gone.
Another characteristic of American poverty is the living condition of impoverished single parents – usually moms” Indeed. Single parent households are a main contributing factor to poverty in America and have consistently increased welfare rolls since Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” war on poverty. Like the war on drugs, as statistics prove, both have failed miserably. Poverty rates in the US today are at an even keel with poverty rates in 1965 despite federal government spending more than $13 trillion to fight poverty. IF we include state and local government money thrown at poverty the sum mushrooms to over $15 trillion. Clearly we have received very little bang for the buck.”
In his January 1964 State of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed, “This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America.” In the 50 years since that time, adjusted for inflation by the constant devaluing of our currency by the Federal Reserve Crime Syndicate, U.S. taxpayers have spent over $22 trillion on anti-poverty programs.
This spending (which does not include Social Security or Medicare) is three times the cost of all U.S. military wars since the American Revolution. Yet progress against poverty, as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau, has been minimal, and in terms of President Johnson’s main goal of reducing the “causes” rather than the mere “consequences” of poverty, the War on Poverty has failed completely. In fact, a significant portion of the population is now less capable of self-sufficiency than it was when the War on Poverty began.
In April, 2014, during the height of the Obama Administration, the National Employment Law Project reported that real median household income fell 10% between 2007 and 2012.
This shows how far America has fallen. And how far it needs rise to achieve prosperity.
Despite the fact that America is the richest country on earth; fasce it–even the poor Americans have free health care, food stamps, housing vouchers, tuition assistance, Big Screen TV sets, cable, X-boxes, Tablets, Computers, internet, free Obama phones, cheap used cars and many other modern day amenities to keep them comfortable in their poverty. That is a BIG problem.
Hellfire club deist, and Founding Father, Ben Franklin noted that the poor should not be kept comfortable in their poverty. This would give them incentive to pulls themselves up by their own bootstraps. Good advice. Especially today in our twisted, society of controlled chaos.
Housing vouchers, food stamps and welfare fill the gap of the working poor, but they also keep those in poverty in poverty. It never raising them out of poverty, and it drags on society as an ever growing tax burden. But when the goal is to incrementally destroy the middle class, while providing circus and bread in the form of every and any possible form of distraction, the tactic is sheer, strategic brilliance.
Since 1965, America has created a generational welfare class. That fasct, coupled with more than 1 million illegal immigrants flooding over our border ever year weigh down on our country’s resources. Clearly the elite are closely adhearing to the socialist gospel of Francis Fox-Piven and her husband Richard Cloward, both of Columbia University, who penned the infamous Cloward-Piven strategy in 1966, to create social justice through poverty by systematically and incrementally overwhelming the US welfare system that was only just created in 1965 under President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society War on Poverty.
Then there is the illegal immigration issue. A big cog in the subversive wheel of deception to stealthily undermine US sovereignty, history and culture, defile the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and subvert Our liberty, using corrupt bureaucrats to do their bidding, all hidden behind a wall of deception and a constant nevever ending river of lies to We, the American People.
If you factor in, based on national census numbers there are 12.5 million illegal aliens. The actual number is far higher, as much as 15 to 20 million illegals live in the US, every year, dragging on resources, lowering wages, overwhelming schools, hospitals and other institutions designed to serve our citizens, not illegal immigrants.
The fact is, the total net cost of illegal immigration for the United States in 2017– at the federal, state, and local levels – was approximately $116 billion after subtracting the tax revenue paid by illegal aliens – about $19 billion – from the total economic impact of illegal migration, which was $134.9 billion.
In 2013, the estimated total cost of illegal migration was approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. Evidence shows that the tax payments made by illegal aliens fail to cover the costs of the many services they consume.
A large percentage of illegal aliens who work in the underground economy frequently avoid paying any income tax at all. Many illegal aliens actually receive a net cash profit through refundable tax credit programs.
There is still much work to be done. The ship is just starting to turn, but we are moving. And we must always be moving toward individual liberty and Our God given inalieable right to LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of happiness.
I can honestly, personally say, for the first time, in my lifetime at least, things in America are not declining economically. I have been working 29 years and have never seen so much opportunity and growth and optimism. It is visible. You can feel it.
However our country’s social, cultural and moral decline is also very visible. It is rampantly declining and getting worse. The current culture of radical change, far more radical and far more dangerous thatn than in the 1960’s hyperbolic hedonism, the demoralization we are seeing in full view in America has never been worse.
This spiraling decline is quickening and it affects all of us, our children and future generations. It is very alluring and hypersexual, but it is also very totalitarian, violent and dangerous. History repeats. If you don’t know history, you can recognize it when it repeats.
America can tolerate neither an economic nor a cultural collapse. Either there is a restoration of traditional values and American History in American society, or the globalists will achieve their goal and America will ultimately collapse.
To destroy every shred and remnant of the Old Order to build the New Order of the Ages, where order will be restored and the mob is enslaved in a totalitarian socialist world order where the population of the world shall not exceed 500,000.
The composers who crafted the Georgia Guidestones operate in secret, behind the scenes, guiding humanity’s progress from the shadows for aeons, diligently charting the course of mankind toward completion of the Great Work. The keepers of the secrets of the Ages will guide the way with their torch of enlightenment, like a sheppard guides his willing, obedient flock into the shearing pen before the slaughter. Most sheep are compliant. Others, those do not comply, will be beaten down by the sheppard’s rod.
These are dangerous and historic times. Opportunity abounds, but so does disaster. America’s great cities, such as Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis have lost between one-fifth and one-quarter of their populations. Birth rates are down to the lowest levels since 1918 and costs to raise a family keep rising and many of the ladders of upward mobility that made America the “opportunity society” have moved out of reach.
Birth rates is of course, is yet another major component of the global depopulation agenda. European birth rates are down. In Italy they are negative. That means more people die then are born. Birth rates are the amount of births against the amount of deaths.
In fact birth rates are down across Europe, except for the Muslim population, who have the highest birth rates in the world and at current levels, Islam will be the dominant religion in the world by 2070. Might I remind you, that Islam permits slavery and pedophilia, The fact is, Sharia Law is an oppressive, totalitarian political ideology, involving rape, the killing of homosexuals, honor killings, domestic abuse and genital mutilation to name just a few.
These are cold hard facts. Here are more cold hard facts. More than 9,000 murders are committed annually by illegals. Of course, this figure gets little or no attention. Sanctuary cities and states have added to the deindustrialization of America over the decades motivated and promoted by UNITED NATIONS Agenda 21 protocols, propanganda and centralized national programs suchs as ICLEI, an amagram for Local Governments for Sustainability, founded in 1990 as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, is an international organization of local governments and national and regional local government organizations that have made a commitment to sustainable development.
Today, more than 1200 cities, towns, counties, and their associations in 84 countries comprise ICLEI’s growing membership. ICLEI works with these and hundreds of other local governments. It provides technical consulting, which should rightly be called propaganda, training, and information services to build capacity, share knowledge, and support local government in the implementation of sustainable development at the local level.
ICLEI’s basic premise is that locally designed initiatives can provide an effective and cost-efficient way to achieve local, national, and global sustainability objectives. ICLIE combined with Common Core, founded and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2010 have helped to weaken America’s sovereignty and our God given individual rights for decades. Each of these organizations and their actions contribute to the ever growing organized chaos we see in the world.
Chaos designed and promulgated by the global elite oligarchs at the Round Table Groups of the UN, CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group and Club Of Rome who wish to enslave America and the world in a neo-fuedal two class totalitarian socialist system of government, where all aspects of human life are under strict control.
Since 1954, this is all part of the ongoing clandestine depopulation agenda that actually operates out in the open for those who have eyes to see and minds to grasp what is really going on the world.
Those pushing this agenda speak of rights, social justice and freedom, as they world to enslave humanity, who for the most part are willingly complicit in their own demise, and have been for decades as the noose of totalitarianism slowly tightens around humanity’s collective throats.
Consider the recently released report from the Federal Reserve that despite current increases of jobs and wages, two-thirds of American households are still unable to raise $400 cash without selling possessions or borrowing from family and friends.
This is a recipe for disaster. Taxes, fees and regulations always harm those who have the least. A solution would be to eliminate the personal income tax, which is already completely unconstititional. The ever increasing tide of taxation without representation is designed to steal the wealth of the middle class.
Remember 20 million Americans lost thier homes as a result of the banker designed economic collapse of 2008. Most of these Americans are still struggling to put their lives back in order. Despite Trump’s exceptional efforts thus far, it will take far more than 3% annual wage growth to address this impoverishing of the majority of Americans. Sadly, this is a drop in the bucket. It will take decades to return America to the prosperity enjoyed by Americans in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
And the fact that our liberties are constantly at risk and continually being stripped makes a restoration unlikely, unless our freedoms and wealth are restored by a return to sound money, and end to FIAT currency and an end to the Federal Reserve and the personal income tax.
If we as a Nation can achieve this, America will truly flourish as never before. But as artificial intelligence and robotics increase the pitch, the road to restoration of Our republic will be arduous and costly in time, toil and lives, and that too is by design.
Although you would never know it from the reports from the US financial press back in 2011, the poor job prospects that Americans faced rival those of India 40 years ago. American university graduates are employed, if they are employed, not as software engineers and managers but as waitresses and bartenders.
They do not make enough to have an independent existence and live at home with their parents. Half of those with student loans cannot service them. Eighteen percent are either in collection or behind in their payments. Another 34% have student loans in deferment or forbearance. Clearly, education was not the answer.
Jobs off-shoring, by lowering labor costs and increasing corporate profits, has enriched corporate executives and large shareholders, but the loss of millions of well-paying jobs has made millions of Americans downwardly mobile.
In addition, jobs off-shoring has destroyed the growth in consumer demand on which the US economy depends with the result that the economy cannot create enough jobs to keep up with the growth of the labor force.
Between October 2008 and July 2014 the working age population grew by 13.4 million persons, but the US labor force grew by only 1.1 million. In other words, the unemployment rate among the increase in the working age population during the past six years is 91.8%.
Until 2017, since the year 2000, the lack of jobs has caused the labor force participation rate to fall, and since quantitative easing, a euphemism for printing money make out of thin air began in 2008, the decline in the labor force participation rate had accelerated.
Clearly there is no economic recovery when participation in the labor force collapses. Like him or hate him, think he’s a NWO stooge or not, the fact is, Donald Trump has made a significant dent in the NWO globalist agenda. There are more jobs available than there are those seeking work.
This is a very good thing. Only ten years ago, the lack of jobs resulted in Americans giving up looking for work and ceased being counted in the labor force. The 2011 6.2% US unemployment rate was misleading because it excluded workers who have given up and left the labor force because there were no jobs to be found.
Counting All Discouraged/Displaced Workers, the May 2016 Unemployment Rose to About 23.0%. Discussed frequently in the regular ShadowStats Commentaries on monthly unemployment conditions, what removes headline-unemployment reporting from common experience and broad, underlying economic reality, simply is definitional.
To be counted among the U.S. government’s headline unemployed an individual has to have looked actively for work within the four weeks prior to the unemployment survey conducted for the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If the active search for work was in the last year, but not in the last four weeks, the individual is considered a “discouraged worker” by the BLS, and not counted in the headline labor force.
ShadowStats defines that group as “short-term discouraged workers,” as opposed to those who, after one year, no longer are counted as “discouraged” by the government.
Instead, they enter the realm of “longterm discouraged workers,” those displaced by extraordinary economic conditions, including regional/local businesses activity affected negatively by trade agreements or by other factors shifting U.S. productive assets offshore, as defined and counted by ShadowStats (see the extended comments in the ShadowStats Alternate Unemployment Measure).
In the ongoing economic collapse into 2008 and 2009, and the non-recovery thereafter, the broad drop in the U.3 unemployment rate from its headline peak of 10.0% in 2009, to the May 2016 headline 4.7%, was due largely to the unemployed giving up looking for work (common in severe economic contractions and major economic displacements).
Those giving up looking for work are redefined out of headline reporting and the labor force, as discouraged workers. The declines in the headline unemployment rate often reflect that, as opposed to unemployed individuals finding new and gainful employment, as was reflected in the headline in May 2016 data at the tail end of the Obama Administration.
These are the facts the media continues to lie about to support their ideological agenda and the ever righteous Almighty God, Barrack Hussein Obama.
The media’s tactics are taken and repeated over and over again, straight from Joseph Goebbels playbook. “Tell a lie, repeat the lie over and over and eventually the people come to believe it.
Like, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” A Goebbelsesque false slogan the caught on like wildfire across social media.
The thing is, the incident never happened, but still millions of conditioned, brainwashed, intentionally dumbed down people believe it–
Or worse, know that it never happened, but don’t defend the fact they know it is a lie in fear of not being politically correct. Fear of not fitting into the cookie cutter, check list mold of a good member of the party– Zeig heil!
This is a delusional sickness. I personally know many people whose fears, or belief systems are so strong, that there can be no way of them admitting the truth, even horrific, horrible truths, even though they know the truth and now they are wrong. They cannot utter a word against their party no matter what evil occurs. Often their are excuses, but never admissions.
They simply cannot be wrong. No matter how often they fail. Or how much damage their failures causes, or how much damage their actions do to others. This is certainly not compassionate, or loving, but rather sociopathic.
A quote attributed to Einstein comes to mind. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.”
John Williams of Shadowstats.com calculates the true US unemployment rate in 2011 to be 23.2%, a number consistent with the collapse of the US labor force participation rate. At the time, corporations borrowed money not to invest for the future or create jobs, but to buy back their own stocks, thus pushing up share prices, CEO bonuses, and corporate debt. The growth in the income and wealth of the one percent comes from looting, not from productive economic activity. Incredibly, Under Trump, that has dramatically changed. It also indicates how much the deep state shadow government was holding the American people down.
The fact is, while some things Trump has done, at least on the surface appear to advance objectives of the Great Work, the majority of his policies have punched holes it and reversed direction.
So far, Donald Trump has kept or tried to keep every one of his promises. He is certainly NOT employing any of the tactics of the globalists, who operate in secret behind the scenes. Those who have generationally owned the US State department since the end of WW2. Those from the Seventh Floor Group of the CFR/UN network at the US State Department. The shadow government. The Milner Group, who from behind the scenes, influenced, controlled or owned most if not every all previous Presidential Administrations since Truman. They are responsible for many deceptions and agendas in the last century up until today including overpopulation, resource depletion, limits to growth, global warming and other deindustrialization scams.
So we must keep our eyes open and our minds objective. We can only access and track actions. Speculation casts shadows and confusion. Truth is what actually happens. Speculation is just that. Speculation. Not truth.
We need to focus on events and take time to access events that happened, not insert theories.
And the fact is, most politicians say what needs to be say to get elected, then lie, cheat and deceive the public. We all know this. So we are smart to question and not trust our representatives and hold them to task, but we don’t. Most of us bitch, but do little to change things. That attitude has to change.
As the leaders and minions of those who operate in secret behind the scenes have said thoughout history:
“The time is now.” We are living in historic times. The enemy has revealed themselves to those who have eyes to see. We know who they are and we know what they are doing. What we have to do if wake up others. We must create a critical mass of understanding.
People have to wake up — and take action. We MUST wake up. Stand up. And fight back. If we love our children and our families and our freedom, we have no choice.
We’ve covered a lot of ground so far. I hope the pieces of the puzzle are all coming together and you are starting to understand what is happening in the world and see the world for what it is, not the illusions that are meant to shape our reality.
More and more people are starting to see through the bullshit. And I hope you are one them. We are fast closing in on the end of the series. I hope our continuing journey thus far has been illuminating, but we still have a long, long way to go. After all, what we are dealing with, is a bottomless pit, a spider web of evil that spread out far and wide, but leads back to the center of the circle of illuminism.
We are far from out of the woods. . . .
But the key question is . . . Can we all see the trees, or are some of us still blinded by the forest?
