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?

Darwin had Black Friday in mind when he created the theory of survival of the fittest

Black Friday is the annual day after Thanksgiving which rings in the holiday shopping season, and brings forth the mindless multitudes buying things they don't need.  This year, Black Friday sales resembled cattle feed lots, and Black Friday consumers resembled groups of zombies, identifying flat screens with grey matter.

To illustrate the point, the Daily Economist has two disturbing and entertaining items that are occurring this Friday, and provide a unique glimpse into the survival of the fittest mode that Darwin believes are species have.


Black Friday got off to a rowdy start at a San Antonio mall where police say one shopper pulled a gun on another who punched him in the face while they were waiting in line at a Sears store.

Police Sgt. Rob Carey tells the San Antonio Express-News a man rushed into the store when it opened Thursday night to get to the front of a line, started arguing with people and tried cutting in front of them.

One man who got punched pulled a gun and that scattered shoppers, including the impatient line-cutter who took cover behind a refrigerator. Then he fled.

Carey says the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon and isn't being charged with a crime. - NBC DFW

And from the offensive side of the ravaging animals, comes the wonderous, rarely seen footage of the human species in desperate need of a sale.




Where are Guns and Roses when we need them, playing in the store background as it drowns out Jingle Bells.

Welcome to the USA, now here is how to apply for welfare

The Department of Homeland Security is not just about protecting our borders, fighting terorrism inside the U.S., and sexually groping simple people who wish to fly from place to place.  No, the ever expanding Federal agency is now instituting a new program to teach illegal and lawfully applying aliens how to apply for welfare, and to get credentials to hide the existance inside America.


“Welcome to USA.gov,” a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), bills itself as the “primary gateway for new immigrants to find basic information on how to settle in the United States” — featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.

“Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs,” the Web page reads.

“Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. - Daily Caller

During the 1920, President Calvin Coolidge said, "The buisness of America is business."  Today, in 2012, President Obama is telling the world, the business of America is welfare and socialism.

Paycheck calculator to show how the fiscal cliff will affect you

With the Bush tax cuts ending on Dec 31, and a whole new array of taxes are ready to be imposed on the American people beginning on Jan 1, it is difficult to sift through the myriad of articles which try to explain how the fiscal cliff will affect you, if it remains without change by Congress and the White House.

However, there is a now a website that provides a new paycheck calculator that shows American just how much they pay now, and will expect to pay next year if all new taxes go into affect.  The fine programmers at Paycheck City have created a neat application and graph that will allow visitors to see the difference between their 2012 taxes, and those projected for 2013.

Simply click on this link, and select the normal amount of standard deductions your family or individual returns allow.

Fiscal Cliff Calculator and Chart


While Paycheck City does not guarantee the results from this generic calculator, it does allow someone to get a rough, general, ballpark estimate of how much more they will have to pay, starting in 2013 due to the increased taxes.

Ten: The number of affordable states you could live in on Social Security

As the estimated 10,000 per day Baby Boomers begin retiring, and start accessing their Social Security accounts, the hard economic questions they must face come at them quickly.  The primary one of course, is can I afford to live off my benefits, and even more so, where can I afford to live.

A new infograph from Nov. 15 shows that Florida, Arizona, and all the warm weather climate states that have been the dream of many over the past few decades, are now priced out of their budgets due to inflation, taxation, and other monetary barriers.  In fact, on an average benefit income of $1130 per month, the number of states that fit this budgetary criteria is now limited to just 10.

And most are in the Midwest.



Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, and West Virginia round out the only true affordable places to live for retirees on a Social Security budget.

But of course, one can always look on the bright side.  These are the primary places that grow food in America, and if the feces hits the fan, at least you will be around other like minded individuals who have a more prudent standard of living, and have been doing so for decades.

New job loss report: To those who believed the White House, here's your sign

For the limited few out there who actually believed the September BLS report that showed the unemployment rate falling from 8.1% to 7.8%, all we at the Daily Economist have to say is, Here's your sign.

Primarily, the drop in unemployment just weeks before the election was so obvious, and so blatent, and so large, that every analyst with a modicum of respect knew that after Nov. 6, the revisions of those numbers would either pop the rate back over 8%, or quite discouragingly, move the numbers even higher than what it was.

The latest initial claims data posted a multi-year high 104,548 surge in weekly NSA claims from 361,800 to 466,348, and even the Seasonally adjusted number soaring from 361K to 439K on expectations of a 375K print. In other words, a complete disaster for any economic data bulls. What is truly amusing is that the same Wall Street "experts" who set expectations were unable to foresee the Sandy effect that every "macrotourist" on Twitter apparently is so very aware of. Also, it is apparently also "Sandy's fault" (now that the Bush excuse is back in retirement) that the prior week's claims were revised from 355K to 361K. Basically, just as we said 3 weeks ago, ignore every negative data point: - Zerohedge


Interestingly, these numbers come just before the onset of Black Friday, and the seasonal increase of temporary jobs leading into, and through Christmas.  What indications then should we expect from here, as to the retail sales for the 2012 holiday by businesses?

Not much.

If your college Degree can't land you a job, demand a refund

Refunds are a common practice for businesses who want to ensure customers return again and again to their places of business, but what is the recourse for an college student who receives a lifetime of propaganda that their college Degree ensures a lucrative career, and it doesn't actually pan out?

Demand a refund of course!

And this is just what one student has done on Nov. 12, by submitting a petititon to the Obama administration to offer college graduates, who owe massive student loan debts, the right to turn in their diplomas in exchange for a refund of their money.


We petition the obama administration to:

Provide University graduates ability to trade their diplomas back for 100% tuition refunds.

Because of the inability of recent college graduates to find gainful employment in order to repay their college debt, and since this college debt cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy, and most of the recent additions to the job market have been in service related industries, the Obama administration should take up the cause of reducing college debt and hold those accountable responsible.

In the name of Consumer Protection, recent college graduates should have the ability to return the diploma and not make any reference to receiving education from the college in exchange for a 100% refund of college tuition. This may be extended with a graduated (ha, get it?) reduction for the last four years, with a red line at January 20, 2008.

While a novel idea, and unique way to hop on the Obama welfare wagon like 53% of Americans have already done, it would probably be more prudent to simply sue the college professors and university where you got your Degree, for failing to teach you basic logic and economics in believing that borrowing $120,000 would guarantee you a chance at one of Obama's famous shovel ready burger flipper jobs.

I'll have some fries with that Mr. Liberal Arts Degree man.

Reality strikes for food stamp numbers as data download continues after election

Most people with any financial sense knew the BLS data regarding the unemployment rate falling .03 in September was a lie, and sure enough, the data download of real economic indicators after the election bears this out.  Not only did Goldman Sachs immediately on Nov. 7 issue a warning that GDP for the 4th quarter would decline from 1.9 to 1.5%, but on Nov. 10, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that food stamp applications for October were the highest in over a yea.


There was, however, another closely tracked number which perhaps is far more indicative of the economic "growth" in the past 4 years, which certainly had a delayed release. The number of course is that showing how many Americans are on foodstamps, and usually is released at the end of the month, or the first day or two of the next month. This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August foodstamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all time record, but the monthly increase of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year. - Zeroehedge

When you win an election through data manipulation, reporting bad numbers after the fact is in itself a strategy.  President Obama can use these numbers to force a new economic plan on the American people, while ensuring one third of the entire work force is bound to government reliance, and accordingly, political reliance.

Marc Faber: Obama re-election will be a disaster for US; buy a machine gun

Economist Marc Faber of the famed Gloom, Boom, and Doom report, spoke with Bloomberg television on Nov. 7 regarding the just completed presidential elections. In the interview, Faber had some very stark assessments of what he believes is in store for the economy, and for America.  The well known economist stated that not only will the re-election of Barack Obama be bad for business, and a disaster for the U.S., but people should get a machine gun to protect what remaining assets they have.


“I am surprised with the reelection of Mr. Obama. The S&P is only down like 30 points. I would have thought that the market on his reelection should be down at least 50%...I think Mr. Obama is a disaster for business and a disaster for the United States. Not that Mr. Romney would be much better, but the Republicans understand the problem of excessive debt better than Mr. Obama who basically doesn't care about piling up debt. You also have in the background Mr. Bernanke, who with artificially low interest rates enables the debt to essentially escalate endlessly.”

“They should buy themselves a machine gun…I need to buy a tank. Joking aside, look, we have manipulated markets. Whenever you manipulate markets, you will get unintended consequences. i think the reelection is unintended consequence of money printing, that favors the so- called 0.25%. It was easy for the Democrats to attack the wealthy fat cats of Wall Street, the elite, and the privileged people to portray them as a profiteer of the system, which to some extent, they are. Not because they wanted to but because Mr. Bernanke enabled them to be profiteers. We have a situation where you have today Mr. Obama, I doubt he will stay at the presidency for another four years. I think there will be so many scandals, but that’s another story.” - Marc Faber interview on Bloomberg, Nov. 7

Maybe this more than anything is why both Smith and Wesson, and Sturm Ruger stock was way up on Wesnesday, even though the markets fell more than 300 points.

How now down dow

Forward.  That is the new motto of the Obama administration.  Of course, forward slogans were the key rallying cry for Mao and other communist leaders, so the progressives in America appear more than happy to borrow it for their vision of the country.

However, it appears forward is not the rallying cry of the stock markets post-Obama re-election, as the Dow, S&P, and AAPL cry out in terror after breaking key levels.


DOW


S&P 500


2 Month Apple Chart

It seems like only last night everyone was celebrating more hope, if not much change. Now comes the hangover. The Dow Jones intraday drop is now 2.23% (and rising), greater than the biggest drop so far in 2012 record on June 1. The last time the market plunged as much: literally one year ago, or November 9, 2011. Sadly, it appears that one can't have their Dow Jones Industrial Average and redistribute it too. - Zerohedge

Forward!  To infinity and Beyond! That appears to be the no-win mantra of Fed Charman Bernanke and the hope and change of those who still own paper in the Wall Street casino.

Jesus and the Democrat (Humor)

A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, "Is that Jesus sitting over there?"  The waitress nodded "yes," so the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.

The next patron to come in was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, "Is that Jesus, over there?"

The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, "My treat."


The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Democrat on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down, and hollered, "Hey there honey! How's about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light?" He too looked across the restaurant and asked, "Isn't that God's boy over there?"

The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. "On my bill," he said loudly.

As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him, and said, "For your kindness, you are healed." The Republican felt the strength come back into his legs, got up, and danced a jig out the door.

Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him, and said, "For your kindness, you are healed." The Libertarian felt his back straightening up, and he raised his hands, praised the Lord, and did a series of back flips out the door.

Then, Jesus walked towards the Democrat, just smiling.

The Democrat jumped up and yelled, "Don't touch me ... I'm on disability."
