The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Only 27 percent of Americans trust banks and the media, and nearly all institutions rank in bottom 30 percent

A new Gallup poll out on June 14 shows that very few Americans have any faith in their core institutions, with banks and the media registering near the bottom of the people’s trust.
In the decade since the start of the housing crisis and subsequent bank bailouts, trust in America’s financial system has fallen from 49% in 2006, down to just 27% in 2016.  And other institutions like the media have dropped to below even that percentage as only 20% of Americans trust their news outlets to provide them the truth and correct information.

Americans renouncing citizenship up 25% over 2013 in just the first six months

In 2013, approximately 750 Americans officially renounced their citizenship, and followed through with the paperwork to divest themselves from U.S. sovereignty.  However, because of political and economic reasons that have carried over into 2014, the number of Americans who have renounced their citizenship this year has already surpassed all of last year, and in fact, has increased that number by 25% in just the first six months of 2014.

Americans are simply lab rats in the great Fed experiment

On Sept. 20, well known and well respected economist Jim Grant spoke in an interview on the ramifications of the Fed's new QE4evr policy.  In his assessment, Americans, as well as our economy, are simply lab rats in a great experiement by the Fed, to try to learn how things work, and in particular, how their Keynsian money printing actions effect everything. too does Grant believe that the Fed is "learning by doing" and follows up by clarifying that this is an experiment, "and we are lab rats in the financial markets." He then proceeds to lament that the credit markets, clueless NYT econopundits notwithstanding, have now lost all informational value as every rate instrument is purely in the manipulated domain of the Fed.

American Poverty: After trillions spent on the war on poverty is it time for trillions more

Lyndon Baines Johnson is the father of the American welfare system.  His Great Society program, which has led to 10's of trillions spent to fight poverty in America, has finally reached its tipping point as new data from July 24 shows that percentage wise, more people are now living in poverty since the 1960's when the great program was implemented.

As world leaders finally begin to admit that we are smack dab in the middle of another Great Depression and the economy stands at the cusp of another earth-shaking collapse of the financial system, the US census reports that nearly 100 million Americans are now classified as living in poverty or are considered “near poor.”
That’s nearly 1/3 of our populace who are living in the worst economic conditions in nearly fifty years.

We haven’t seen these highs since the mid ’60s. That survey indicates the poverty level has grown from 15.1% to as high as 15.7% [since 2010], and it’s spreading at record levels to many socio-economic groups from unemployed workers, suburban families, to the poorest poor.

…More discouraged workers are giving up on the job market and unemployment aid is running out. They found that the suburbs are seeing an increase in poverty…

 Those experts surveyed also predict poverty will remain above the pre-recession level of 12.5% for many more years. -
With deteriorating currencies, and a potential drive to deflation on the horizon for Americans, all that one can say is, the worst laid plans of mice and bleeding heart politicians.

Food Stamp usage remains at record levels for Americans on welfare

January brought another month of reports on government welfare and benefits, and while there wasn't a large climb in new claims for food stamps and SNAP programs, usage of this program remains at all-time record levels for Americans.

And while the actual number of recipients declined by a whisper, the number of households actually receiving benefits increased to a new record of 22.2 million. Lastly, the average monthly benefit per household slide to a multi-year low of $277.27. - Zerohedge

Purchasing power for Americans drop another $50 billion as gas prices reach $4 a gallon

In a previous post, the Daily Economist showed you how for every .10 cent increase in gas prices, Americans lose $25 billion in discretionary income.  Well, as of March 20th, we can chalk up $50 billion that will now be siphoned from desired us by the common American into gasoline purchases because the average price has risen .15 to $4.00 a gallon.

Obama content in American's suffering over gas prices to achieve green agenda

On March 1st, Energy Secretary Stephen Chu uttered what most Americans believed, which is that President Obama has no thoughts on resolving high gas prices because to do so would interfere with his green agenda.

According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices.

Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy. - Yahoo News

Besides the Obama Administration, many Democrats have the same lack of compassion for Americans who are watching their disposable income shrink with each dime hike in prices.  Nancy Pelosi fell back on to the old rhetorical blame speculators instead of recognizing the growing inflation taking place due to Congressional, Executive, and Fed spending.

The American people speak loudest when markets or government try to dip into thier pocketbooks, and the President unwillingness or inability to deal with soaring gas prices will change many voters minds in the coming November elections.

Baby boomers may be the last generation of Americans to succeed

To say that the young, and those graduating from college will have a difficult time in the job markets and future financial system is an understatement.  Especially as new data out shows that the median net worth for those under the age of 35 has dropped more than 300% in the past 25 years.

The majority of this disparity is tied to the continuing devaluaton of the dollar, the massive increases in personal debt, and finally coupled with the rise in student loan debt.

The future's so dim, and very few can afford shades.

Americans lining up for foodstamps like there is no tomorrow

Food stamp recipients just crossed 46 million Americans in the latest report from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  Last month, 120,000 Americans may have found a job, but 423,000 fell below the income limits and became eligible for the EBT.

Makes us all want to pull out our Karaoke machines and sing our EBT anthem.

Why civil rights leaders make bad politicians and economists

Civil Rights leaders in American are quick to scam bucks from the taxpayer to provide welfare and free largesse to their minority constituents.  The Democratic party has a history of passing massive legislation that has provided benefit after benefit to tens of millions of Americans for not working, or for having children.

So it should come as no surprise that the son of civil rights leader Jessie Jackson would propose a boondoggle of a welfare scam, paying $40,000 per person per year to all the unemployed in the US.

This proposal comes out to $800+ billion per year, and over $4 Trillion in just 5 years.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has offered his own $804 billion jobs plan that calls on the federal government to hire the nation’s 15 million unemployed Americans for jobs paying roughly $40,000 each, and bail out all the states and cities facing budget crises. - Fox News

But then again, that's Chicago politics for you.  Like Barack Obama, who was voted into office in the state of Illinois not by merit, but by finding scandals in his opposition, so to it appears Jessie Jackson Jr lacks the basic intelligence of simple math to realize that what he is proposing... make-shift work pay to 15 million for doing.... who knows what, and is the standard practice of progressives who rarely think before they speak.

Americans are relying upon government handouts more now than in anytime in history

Even during the Great Depression, not all Americans benefited from a government handout or program.  With 25% of the nation unemployed, this meant that 75% had paying jobs of one type or another.  The WPA, CCC, and other alphabet agencies, coupled with the new social programs such as FDIC, began the course of American welfare that grew under the Johnson administration, and accelerated in the 90's and 2000's under Republican and Democratics Presidents.

That acceleration has now led the American people to be very close to 50/50 on reliance on the government dole.  In a new report, nearly 49% of all Americans rely upon a government benefit in one form or another.

Nearly half, 48.5%, of the population lived in a household that received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2010, according to Census data. Those numbers have risen since the middle of the recession when 44.4% lived households receiving benefits in the third quarter of 2008.

This is something that is very discouraging, because as the monetary systems of the global economy start to fail, and the US government neglects to address its skyrocketing national debt.  Nearly half of the 310 million Americans living today will find it hard, or be unable to cope should circumstances cut off the government spigot, and will lead to a more crime and rebellion, such as was seen in the Middle East earlier this year, and in Europe over the economic riots taking place now.

Forget trusting in the Super Congress as lobbyists take over proceedings

It appears more and more that the Super Congress, created to allow the debt ceiling to be raised, and to institute necessary budget cuts, was simply a ruse to keep the status quo amongst the Congressional establishment.

It has come to the attention of the people that not only are Americans not privy to what is going on in the proceedings, but high-powered lobbyists are receiving updates and may be having a hand in what is chosen to be cut from the committee.

K Streeters with deep ties to supercommittee members and congressional leadership say senior staffers have given them readouts from closed-door committee meetings. For example, senior aides to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), who is on the panel, met with several Republican lobbyists on Thursday and among the topics discussed was the prospect for a grand deal. Two days earlier, Kyl and the rest of the committee answered no questions as they brushed past a gaggle of reporters who had waited outside the private, six-hour meeting. - Politico

Republican or Democrat... Bush or Obama... does it matter anymore?

Alas, the American public is finally seeking to look at the men behind the curtain

On one of the first days of the convening of the unconstitutional Super Congress to discuss ways to cut spending and delight in finding new taxes to push on unemployed Americans, a wave of protests outside the chamber bring discussions to a halt, with what sounds like people chanting JOBS NOW.

Whether Obama's farse of a job stimulus bill comes to fruition is moot at this point, because Americans are starting to say enough is enough on the pageantry that is our government representation.
