It seems the mainstream media (MSM) is determined to bombard us with the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. Michael Brown was not gunned down with his hands up. Forensic evidence and eye witness testimony from a half dozen African Americans has disproven this, and it is indeed not a fact. It appears the MSM wants to develop a race problem in America. I guess that saying from Joseph Goebbels (WWII Germany) about telling a lie big enough, and to say it long enough, the people will believe it. I wonder if this is why USA Today put this picture on the front page of its newspaper. “Hands up, don’t shoot” did not happen, but USA Today spin doctors put it up without dispelling the myth. Protesters and pundits alike say “black lives matter,” but not if they are killed by the hundreds in Chicago by other blacks. The black on black homicide rate, according to the FBI, is 90%, and blacks are way over represented in nearly all crime statistics. The idea that blacks are being hunted down by whites is a big lie. Why are they lying to cover up a bad economy that is going to get worse?
Of course, you would not know the economy was in trouble if you read USA Today. The same newspaper is telling us over and over again that “Economic Growth Keeps Picking Up Steam.”Really? Did they miss that Black Friday shopping season was reportedly off by 11% for the same period last year? Do these folks not know nearly 93 million people are not counted in the employment numbers? Did they miss that more than 60 million Americans are either on food stamps or disability?
You want some more data that says the U.S. economy is declining? The USA is now the #2 economy in the world. According to the IMF, it was officially overtaken by China. Is the MSM warning you about the implications for the US dollar? It will be challenged as the only reserve currency, and when we lose that status, the poor are going to be blindsided. The US is also $18 trillion in debt. It is an economic fact that countries with more debt than GDP suffer financially. Gregory Mannarino told me that the US dollar is in “terminal decline.” You know what that means? Big inflation is coming. In more dreadful US financial news, the Treasury just printed up a fresh $1 trillion to soak up debt that was coming due. This is printing new money to pay off old debt. That’s like paying off one credit card with a new credit card. What could go wrong? Isn’t it funny how the President complained he did not know ISIS was taking over large areas of Iraq and Syria, but he had time to meet Al Sharpton more than 80 times at the White House. I feel the race problem is a contrived distraction, and it is a disservice to America, especially minorities that will suffer the most when this debt tsunami hits full force. The MSM should be ashamed for propelling a known lie!
It’s not just going to be inflation that folks will have to deal with, but it may be global war. The US is sending a hundred tanks to Eastern Europe to combat “Russian aggression.” Russia is also beefing up its defenses. This is not the kind of thing that happens before peace breaks out. Russia says it is under financial attack. Vladimir Putin said, this week, even if the problems in Eastern Ukraine and Crimea didn’t happen, the West would have found another excuse to put sanctions on Russia. The ruble is at historic lows and inflation is surging. I am sure Russia will not retaliate in any way.
Finally, North Carolina is joining 17 other states in suing President Obama for recently granting amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants. The White House says it’s just not going to enforce the law, and it will not deport these folks. It’s not that simple. The states’ lawsuits say the President’s executive order, in effect, granted these folks rights and benefits. The states say that they will be forced to pay for it, and it is totally unconstitutional. Texas Governor Rick Perry says it will also add to the flood of illegals at the border, but I guess that is the plan when your policies are so bad that you have to import new voters. This is what this is all about—new Democratic voters. Who cares if the country implodes?
