America Is Drowning in Problems – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on May 23, 2020

The blame China game is really an effort to cover-up the failure of Western governments to deal with a crisis.

Throughout America, state, local, and federal government  epitomize  failure. Trillions of dollars have been poured into weapons systems that cannot be used without destroying the United States along with the rest of the world, while dams fail, bridges collapse, communities deteriorate, and homelessness grows. The government in Washington spends time, effort, and money manufacturing enemies to justify the budget of the military/security complex, while  jobs and the US economy are offshored, the environment is degraded, and health care needs go unaddressed.

Paul Craig Roberts

Washington is picking yet another fight with China. On top of the trade war we now have the coronavirus war.  China is accused of being responsible for the virus by withholding information about it.  Some in Washington want to make China pay for the cost of the virus by reneging on US debt held by China in the form of US Treasuries.

What information about coronavirus is China supposed to have withheld?

That China was doing coronavirus research?  How could this information have been withheld when the US State Department knew about it, the N.I.H. was funding it, and US scientists were complaining about the danger?

That coronavirus was ravaging Wuhan?  How was this information withheld when it was in the media every day?

The United States and its vassals knew about the virus outbreak in China two months prior to its outbreak in the West and did nothing. Through either inaction or intent, the US, Canada, and Europe imported the virus.  The governments refused to stop flights in and out of China and to prevent cruise ships from welcoming passengers from infected areas. Governments did not want to interfere with profits, which came before public health.  Absolutely nothing was done.  No efforts were made to stockpile protective masks and gear, or to protect nursing homes, or to segregate hospital facilities, or to think outside the box about treatments.  The Swedish government was so unprepared that it did not even try to do anything and just let the virus run its course with devastating effects on the elderly.  [Note: There is much disinformation about Sweden from those who believe the virus is a plot to impose police state controls, such as claims that Sweden has kept the economy open without paying for it in a higher death rate and is gaining “herd immunity” against Covid-19.  These claims are contradicted by news reports.  For example: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-world-health-organization-said-lessons-could-be-learned-from-sweden—now-its-daily-deaths-are-soaring-2020-05-21  and https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/21/just-7-per-cent-of-stockholm-had-covid-19-antibodies-by-end-of-april-study-sweden-coronavirus.]

In an attempt, more or less successful, to reduce the infection rate so that health facilities were not over-burdened, every other country imposed social distancing rules, bans against crowd events, and workplace closures.  As little was known about the disease and the Chinese mortality rate was believed to be vastly understated, there was no responsible alternative to the so-called “lockdowns.”  It remains to be seen whether the concern for profits has produced a premature reopening that will result in a second wave of rapid infection rates. Many suspect that Big Pharma and Bill Gates want to keep the infection spreading in order to panic us into being vaccinated with an inadequately tested vaccine.

The blame China game is really an effort to cover-up the failure of Western governments to deal with a crisis.

The failure of governments to deal with crisis is ubiquitous.  Just think Katrina, the hurricane that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.  If you don’t remember or are too young to have experienced the 2005 hurricane via TV, read Douglas Brinkley’s The Great Deluge ( https://www.amazon.com/Great-Deluge-Hurricane-Katrina-Mississippi-ebook/dp/B000GCFX5Y/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=The+Great+Deluge&qid=1590082177&s=books&sr=1-1 ).

Everyone knew that the levies protecting New Orleans and surrounding areas were unable to withstand a storm of Katrina’s intensity.  The city was a bowl waiting to fill up with the water that wiped out 80% of New Orleans and 150 miles of Gulf Coast communities.   Evacuation orders came too late.  There were no steps taken to evacuate those without cars and resources. The sick and elderly were left in place.  The few steps that were taken to assemble buses, boats, and first responders located the scanty resources in areas that flooded.  The New Orleans Police Department went AWOL. Some joined in the looting. FEMA was a total failure.  President George W. Bush and Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff were not focused on the unfolding tragedy but on their creation of a terrortist hoax that was used to justify 20 years of US bombing and invasions of Middle Eastern and North African countries. As Bush had deployed Louisiana’s National Guard to Iraq, the Louisiana governor had to borrow guardsmen from other states.

The US Coast Guard, Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries personnel, and private individuals formed the force of first responders. People from Louisiana and from other states showed up on their own time, their own money, and with their own boats and began organizing rescues.  There were many heroic and generous people involved in the rescue. As most of the rescuers were white southerners and most of the rescued were black, it put the lie to the propagandistic picture of the white southern racist. For example, Sara Roberts and her husband Buisson, a descendant of Confederate General P.G.T.Beauregard, organized the Cajun Navy.  Sara enlisted clients of her accounting firm who came up with 35 boats and crews to man them.  One of her clients, Ronny Lovett, paid his construction crews triple wages for their rescue time and spent $200,000 of his money equipping the boats with food, water, medical supplies, chain saws, life jackets, spotlights, ropes and whatever else could contribute to successful rescues. It was individual citizens, not the governments in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Washington that rescued many thousands of people who otherwise would have perished. 

From its founding day, New Orleans was a man-made disaster waiting to happen.  Dredging, canals, watercourse alterations, pipelines and a variety of other environmental damaging mistakes had over the years destroyed the wetlands that protected the city and Gulf Coast. In order to serve private profit, failure was built into the system. The Great Deluge is an external cost of a political and economic system that puts private profits first.

We are undergoing it again at this moment as areas of Michigan are inundated from floods caused by dam failures. One of the dams, the Edenville Dam was a long known public safety hazard . Boyce Hydro, the owner of the dam, repeatedly failed despite the intervention of regulators to address the known risk.  Not only was Boyce Hydro negligent, but also were the government authorities that permitted the known risk to persist unaddressed.  The lost of life and property from the flooding is an external cost imposed on third parties by Boyce Hydro whose agenda was limited to its profits.

It is as difficult to understand the liberal and progressive belief in government as it is to understand the libertarian belief in the efficacy of the invisible hand that allegedly causes private greed to serve the public’s interest.  Humans are a built-in failure machine.  Their time perspective is short term.  They are always surprised by the unintended consequences of their own thoughtless actions and inactions.

Throughout America, state, local, and federal government  epitomize  failure. Trillions of dollars have been poured into weapons systems that cannot be used without destroying the United States along with the rest of the world, while dams fail, bridges collapse, communities deteriorate, and homelessness grows. The government in Washington spends time, effort, and money manufacturing enemies to justify the budget of the military/security complex, while  jobs and the US economy are offshored, the environment is degraded, and health care needs go unaddressed.   The US rivals third world countries in terms of the percentage of its population that has no savings, no access to health care, and no prospects for advancement in life.   

But we can blow up the world several times over and make mindless interventions in the natural environment that multiply the destructive power of storms, heavy rains, and other natural phenomena.

Another election approaches and yet again there is no acknowledgement of the real problems our country faces or any interest in discussing what to do about them. America and the Western World in general are simply going to drown in their unaddressed problems just as New Orleans drowned in Hurricane Katrina.

The Federal Reserve Is the Most Dangerous Enemy of the U.S. and Its Economy – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on December 19, 2019

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws” ~ Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

The common man has no concept whatsoever of the true reality of money. This of course is by design, as the monetary process in the U.S. has been structured and presented in such a way as to make it seem extremely complicated, and outside the understanding of the dumbed-down public-schooled population.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/12/gary-d-barnett/the-federal-reserve-is-the-most-dangerous-enemy-of-the-u-s-and-its-economy/

“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” ~ SIR JOSIAH STAMP, (President of the Bank of England in the 1920’s, the second richest man in Britain):

Those that control the money, control everything. This truth has never been more evident than it is today in this country, all due to the banking system’s control of all money and politics for the past 106 consecutive years. This criminal cartel has laid waste to any free market system of money, and monopolized the entirety of the fraudulent centrally planned monetary system of the United States. All this was done in their own interest, and at the expense of the general population. As mentioned above, the American citizen has allowed his slavery to this system, and that slavery is still in place today.

The common man has no concept whatsoever of the true reality of money. This of course is by design, as the monetary process in the U.S. has been structured and presented in such a way as to make it seem extremely complicated, and outside the understanding of the dumbed-down public-schooled population. Most think that money are those assets in their bank and investment accounts, while in fact, over 90% of the entire money supply is created out of thin air by the private banks that control the supply of money in the U.S. This fake money is created, loaned out, and then payable back to these same banks with interest. These are not dollars that were deposited by others; it is simply nothing that turns into money for the banks for free. A scheme at this level of corruption is pure genius so long as the general population remains in a state of unmitigated ignorance.

In addition, the so-called “representative” government, those charlatans voluntarily elected by the people, use borrowed money in order to spend, and the current public debt due to that borrowing is well over $23 trillion dollars. When the government borrows, the central banks create this money from nothing, loan it to the government in exchange for treasury bonds, and the government then adds this to public debt. It pays back from the pockets of its citizens all that money created plus interest. The banks that made the loans never had any money in the first place; they just steal every dollar from the rest of us via counterfeiting and extortion. They have zero risk, and have all the money they can print.

As James Corbett pointed out in Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve, “The fact is that the Federal Reserve System is comprised of a Board of Governors, 12 regional banks, and an Open Market Committee. The privately-owned member banks of each Federal Reserve Bank vote on the majority of the Reserve Bank’s directors, and the directors vote on members to serve on the Federal Open Market Committee, which determines monetary policy. What’s more, Wall Street is given a prime seat at the table, with tradition holding that the president of the powerful New York Federal Reserve Bank be given the vice chairmanship of the FOMC and be made a permanent committee member. In effect, the private banks are the key determinants in the composition of the FOMC, which regulates the entire economy.”

The Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C., including the Board of Governors appointed by the president, is the only part of the system that has any federal aspect whatsoever, but does that board control the Federal Reserve banks? It absolutely does not, and in fact, just the opposite is the case. The banking cartel controls the money, and therefore controls the politicians and government. The Fed governors chosen by the president do not answer to the president or to the Congress. In fact, the chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee is only obligated to testify before Congress, but has no legal obligation whatsoever to that body. The government has no say at all concerning the actions of the Fed, so economically speaking; the Fed controls the entirety of the economic system.

It is not often mentioned, but the current Board of Governors members have very storied pasts, and this is telling considering their loyalties, which are to the banking system, not to the government or the people. The current chairman, Jerome Powell, has been associated with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a partner at the corrupt Carlyle Group, which was the inner circle of The Bush family, the Saudi Royal family, Osama Bin Laden’s family and Donald Rumsfeld. He was also an investment banker in New York. The other current members have held positions as state bank commissioner, bank president, and policy advisor for FEMA and Homeland Security. They have been heavily involved with the Brookings Institute, McKinsey & Company, PIMCO, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Cynosure Group, Carlyle Group, and the International Monetary Fund. This is not nearly a complete list, but is a who’s who of big banking, major investment companies, powerful political connections, and globalist movements, many involved in extremely corrupt and profitable relationships that have close ties to war, banking, and Fed policy. Now they are in charge of the economic decisions of the country. Scandals abound concerning some of these entities, but these connections with the Federal Reserve members are rarely in the daily mainstream news. The Chairman and three others currently sitting on the Board of Governors were appointed by Trump, and this entire group, plus the heads of the Federal Reserve Banks determine the economic policy of this country.

The criminal banking cartel created the Federal Reserve, wrote its own rules, and Congress went along, and it became law. The banking magnates now regulate their own industry, have no oversight whatsoever, and have the “legal” authority to issue and fully control the entire monetary system due to their monopoly on the production of money. The conspiracy of the participants in this powerful money cartel called the Federal Reserve is fully evident with only a modicum of research, and is much deeper than can be presented here in this short article. The entirety of the Federal Reserve, including all those presidential appointees, the banking heads, the politicians, and those controlling elites behind the scenes, all collude for personal profit and power. This is appalling, and can only exist with the consent of the masses at large, those who have now apparently lost all ability to think.

This is a stacked deck, and one that benefits only the controlling class in banking, and works against the American public. The Fed is the facilitator of torture, war, and conquest because it is the supplier of money for all the horrendous activities of this terroristic government. It enriches the few in the elite class with money and power, all at the expense of the rest of society. This is corruption writ large, and it will not end until the Federal Reserve is abolished.

FEMA watching the ‘Waffle House Index’ as Dorian approaches – WAGA

Posted by M. C. on September 2, 2019

FEMA taking lessons from the free market.There could be hope but I doubt it.

No formaldehyde walls in a Waffle House!

Maybe when they come to take us we will be sentenced to a Waffle House camp instead of a FEMA camp.

http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/fema-watching-the-waffle-house-index-as-dorian-approaches

The lights at Waffle House are always on, but when a storm rolls in and restaurants have to close down, Waffle House serves recipes from their “Storm Playbook.”

“The goal is to get in right behind the storm and get the restaurants back open, so the community has a place to eat,” said Waffle House’s Pat Warner.

The Waffle House storm team works around the clock coordinating thousands of trucks and team members. For Dorian, they’re staging trucks in Jacksonville until it’s safe to enter the storm zone.

“We’ll have the power, the food, the generators, the people, the fuel to get the restaurants back open. That way we’re not a burden to the community, we’re helping the community,” said Warner.”

After the storm hits, Waffle House will check in on each of its stores through their security cameras. That way they can see if the store has power, which stores were hardest hit, and where to send help first.

“This costs a lot of money,” said Warner. “We don’t make money on this, the resources we send in, but it pays off in the long term because it’s about the people,” said Warner.

The storm command center has a large board displaying each store on a map. All stores that are up and running show in green. It’s part of the “Waffle House Index”: a measurement watched by FEMA showing how severe a storm is. Green means the stores are operational with a full menu. Yellow, they’ll have a limited menu. Red means the store is shut down.

“A lot of people look to us to see what we do, and we don’t do anything special we just want to be there,” said Warner.

Being there is the most important thing said Warner. He wants Waffle House to be a beacon for the community that will have to rebuild life as they knew it…

Dave Hodges Defines the NFL’s Role as Collaborator with DHS Gestapo in Destroying American Constitutional Rights (And How to Stop Them) Dec. 8, 2013

Posted by M. C. on June 28, 2018

Every NFL Stadium Is a FEMA Camp Hiding In Plain Sight

On September 23, 2011, children, without warning, were abducted from their Denver schools by FEMA and taken to the Colorado Sports Authority football stadium. At my son’s middle school, we cannot even have my son’s aunt pick him unless she is registered with the school and shows identification. Yet, FEMA can literally abduct children from their schools without parental permission or notification…

I am a typical NFL fan. This is outrageous. Someone should do something. Tell me again when do pre-season games start?

sheeple

Dave Hodges

Whatever happened to just playing football? When I used to watch an NFL game on television, I only wanted to watch the game. I never appreciated listening to their liberal political agenda often being spewed out by their talking heads such as Bob Costas.

The NFL Is An Extension of the TSA

The NFL pat downs.

Invasive  NFL security. What’s the difference?

 The NFL has decided it is not enough for Americans to be abused by the TSA at the airport, the NFL has become the newest version of the TSA.

The NFL’s Role in Separating Families For DHS FEMA Camp Trial Runs and Martial Law Desensitization

Posted by M. C. on September 24, 2017

When Trump says you should boycott the NFL he is right. The NFL has made itself your enemy.

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/12/07/the-nfls-role-in-the-coming-martial-law/

On September 23, 2011, children, without warning, were abducted from their Denver schools by FEMA and taken to the Colorado Sports Authority football stadium. At my son’s middle school, we cannot even have my son’s aunt pick him unless she is registered with the school and shows identification. Yet, FEMA can literally abduct children from their schools without parental permission or notification? This is outrageous!

The drill went so far as to hire mock parents, trying to simulate a reuniting between the abducted children and “their fictitious” parents (see the DHS recruitment letter written to the Denver Public Schools listed at the bottom of the page). The mock parent would beg DHS personnel to release their children. This was nothing but a desensitization exercise to get Federal personnel to become callous the pleas of would-be parents.  Let me take this opportunity to state that drills are done with the expectation that the drill will someday reflect the same circumstances in real life. This drill clearly showed the intent to separate parents and children in times of crisis. Carefully examine the following sign. Read the rest of this entry »

U.S. GOV’T TO “SIMULATE NUKE BLAST OVER MANHATTAN”

Posted by M. C. on April 21, 2017

https://www.infowars.com/operation-gotham-shield-u-s-govt-to-simulate-nuke-blast-over-manhattan-as-actual-war-nears/

It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.

A threat to NYC won’t come from Korea, they can’t keep anything in the air long enough to get past Japan.  We could flatten NK in half an hour if they are stupid enough to follow through on their threats.  That leaves Russia and China. Read the rest of this entry »

The Similarites To The Soviet Union Should Be Obvious. The Enemy Is US

Posted by M. C. on July 6, 2014

Do you, like I, wonder why with all this DHS/CIA/NSA spying does ISIS pop up from nowhere?  These efforts don’t seem to be diminishing the terror threat.

How much of this spying is meant to curb international terrorism and how much is actually directed inward? Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook is Watching, The DHS Knows Your Children’s Biometrics – Don’t Drink the Digital Kool Aid.

Posted by M. C. on November 28, 2012

Unless you spend ALL your time on Facebook hopefully you ought to be aware the government is trying to data mine your communications, financial transactions and movements.  Newspapers, unions, newspapers, grocery stores (Why No!, We don’t sell club card information, they told us so!), Facebook, they are all watching.  When Big Sis asks for information the social networks and phone companies bend over.  They all do it but Facebook and especially AT & T are trendsetters.

See here, consider the advice and protect yourself.

I am amazed at the number of people using a credit or debit card at the wine and beer store. Read the rest of this entry »

Who Gives Its People a Fair Chance? Afghanistan Does

Posted by M. C. on September 20, 2012

The last two administrations have turned the US into a Bizarro world. Bad is good, war is peace, shredding the Constitution is freedom, censorship is free speech. We have reached a new low, but probably not the bottom. While one of the most backward, corrupt countries is possibly on the way to its old self of a thousand years ago. The Middle East was, in general, the leader in art, science, education and justice when Europe was wallowing in poverty, ignorance and disease. We may be coming full circle.
