Yes, Why Are We Bringing In All These People From Shithole Countries?

Just as I feared Trump was falling into an amnesty deal led by no one but RINOS and Democrats, who all hate the president and his agenda, he suddenly brings into focus the most obvious truth in the world: why WOULD we want to bring a large number of people from African countries or Haiti?  Trump totally redeemed himself.

Of course, a bunch of black "commentators" like Don Lemon and other dumbass Democrats start calling all Trump supporters "racists, xenophobic, misogynous, islamaphobic...blah, blah, blah.."  Democrats and idiot blacks who say this are in fact proving that they are massively racist themselves by lumping everyone of us into the same classification!!  Idiots!!  They are proving themselves to be stupid and racist!

Most of the 3rd world, including most of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia ARE shit-holes. It's very obvious. And they are shit-holes mostly because of low median intelligence.  In fact, the only countries in any region who are better off were colonized by the (White) British. Yep, having been colonized by Britain was a good thing in every case!

There are many highly educated people from Ghana and Nigeria (former colonies of Britain) who come to the US to get PhDs at our universities. Under the merit system, these peoples would be encouraged to come here and stay here. Change can happen, but it's slow.

If our immigration system were based on merit, as President Trump wants, it would solve many problems. But we we don't want mass and uncontrolled immigration from anywhere, especially Africa, Middle East and Latin America, without proof of sufficient financial resources to support themselves once they come here, some English, and some kinds of skills, accomplishments, or academic or other qualifications that show they have something to offer our country.

NO CHAIN MIGRATION, NO MASS MIGRATION FROM ANYWHERE, NO VISA LOTTERY, NO SANCTUARY ANYTHING

MORE SELECTIVE 'MERIT-BASED' ADMISSIONS WITH CRITERIA, STRICTER BORDER ENFORCEMENT, STRICT VETTING OF VISA APPLICATIONS, MUCH MORE EFFICIENT TRACKING OF THOSE HERE ON VISAS -- INCLUDING PROMPT DEPORTATIONS  ALLOW MORE MIGRATION OF POLES, HUNGARIANS, CZECHS, LATVIANS, ESTONIANS TO AMERICA AS MOST EAST EUROPEANS KNOW THE TRUE VALUE OF FREEDOM AND THE DANGER OF HUGE OVER LORDING GOVERNMENTS

EXCLUDE THE FLOOD OF IMMIGRANTS PROMOTED UNDER OBAMA IN ANY DACA REFORM DEAL!!  SCREW OBAMA!

Marxist Democrats Have Torn This Nation Apart

Martin Armstrong traces the origins of class warfare to Karl Marx,
The reason that I call the Left Marxist is that this is where the class warfare begins. This philosophy did far more than simply invoke class warfare. It instigated the entire belief that government could manage the economy and eliminate the business cycle. John Maynard Keynes also followed that segment of Marx taking the position that government could control the business cycle. Therefore, both Marx and Keynes shared a common belief that the government could eliminate the business cycle. Towards the end of Keynes’ life, he relented that he had fought against the business cycle and Smith’s Invisible Hand, and came to realize he was wrong.
After Trump's miraculous victory over the outrageously corrupt Hillary Clinton's cartel with her near-universal "connections" forged by influence peddling bribe payments in return for future favors and access, we've seen 1/2 of this nation in a state of near insanity. Many call it "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

The Clinton-allied media outlets have lost their minds and the entire MSM establishment have turned into even WORSE liars and propagandists than during the campaign season! They lie non-stop and denigrate the Trump administration & flat-out refuse to report on any of the numerous positive accomplishments of the administration. In fact, any positive accomplishment from the Trump administration REALLY incenses these idiots.  This is a clue to why these people are living in an alternative universe: they thought everything was going great under Obama/Hillary!

It's because 1/2 of the nation has been been told nothing but lies for many, many years and subject to non-stop propaganda and lies from the Obama administration and the main street media corporations. Everyone has been told how great things are. Even Janet Yellen says "everything's great." Nobody has been telling the truth for decades. Now and during the campaign, when Trump and his supporters bitterly complained about the state of the nation, the 1/2 of of the nation who have swallowed the lies and otherwise unable to see the truth, are seriously confused and even angry. They want to kill the messenger!  They say the messenger is the liar!  Everything was good under Obama and Hillary, right?

Wrong.

The government has been understating inflation for years which has been overstating real GDP (since higher inflation in the denominator reduces the GDP number). Obama's average GDP growth was poor about 1.8%. Given that inflation was actually closer to 4%, not 2%, real GDP was about ZERO for the PAST DECADE.  Obama bragged that the economy and employment is so good.  But the truth is that was not good.

Speaking of GDP, US Federal debt doubled in the past 10 years to "prop-up" the weak economy. $10 Tiillion of debt-fueled spending is counted as "GDP." So, it's boosting GDP.  Ten trillion dollars of debt-funded spending and under-reported inflation has masked near-recessionary conditions.

Debt-Fueled Spending Has Masked Depression in America for a Decade

Instead, Democrats have been fed numerous false memes. One is that America is an evil place that we should we should be ashamed of. Obviously that's not true, but Democrats believe this crap. They are told that only more government creates jobs which is total bullshit. Police officers are assumed to be outrageously racist. But statistics support none of that. Blacks are told that they are "being held backs by whites" but there's not an ounce of truth to this. Only Blacks are holding back Blacks.

The Obama economy never generated enough jobs to keep up with population growth, so the labor force participation rate has declined to a 45 year low. Into this crappy job market, Obama opened the floodgates of poor and poorly educated Central American peasants into this country despite there were few jobs for them. AND IT WAS ALL ABOUT SECURING VOTES FOR DEMOCRATS. It was a massive fraud on the American people the way they surreptitiously bused these illegals to places far and wide across the country under the cover of night.

For Obama and Hillary, what was best for the country was never of primary concern.  Marxist Demon_crats like Obama and Hillary have intentionally sown discord, promoted victim-hood, failed to help the economy and vilified the true heart of this country, the Deplorables, ie., White and Christian persons.

No wonder they (deranged Democrats) are literally screaming at the moon in frustration as Trump moves to fix all of the problems created or perpetuated by Obama and Hillary.  Slowly long-standing fraud and lies are being revealed to everyone.

Why Our Economy Is In Depression And Will Get Only Worse

I wrote a blog entitled "We're Reaching the End of the Road" where I laid-out a litany of reasons for why our economy is mired in prolonged near-recession conditions and why things won't be improving anytime soon.

I mentioned poor demographics, the declining utility of debt, and the effects of reaching the limits of resources, such as affordable oil, as some of the causes. All these are true and have caused Central Banks all over the world to "pump-up" the money supply to absurd levels, backstopped all markets to maintain desired "wealth effects"and governments have spent borrowed money like never seen before. These emergency measures have continued for 10 years. They are now trying to stop these emergency measures now, but it won't be possible to stop them for long.

Soon, it will become apparent that we're in recession without end; which resembles Depression in duration. It may not be a sharp downturn--since we never had a boom--just a generally slow "sinking" perhaps interrupted for a number of months by the Trump Tax Reform, for example. Think "Japan" for the past 20 years, for example. We're really becoming Japan. This "recession" will not end and emergency spending and "printing"will re-start. Government intervention will only increase. The recession won't end, but the governments may not allow markets to "correct." This is because market declines would worsen the economy and it likely won't be allowed. It's not being allowed even now.

Governments and captive Central Banks have already subverted markets, making them policy tools, by manipulating all of them: first and foremost the bond markets. Governments around the world have manipulated the "risk-free" interest rate (govt bond T-bills) to near zero and below. This itself manipulates all other asset prices. Central Banks have provided a "backstop" to the markets and investors know it. It's causing extreme bubble conditions that will continue. The "appearance" of prosperity must be maintained!

The first chart below shows that world population turns negative this year and declines FOR DECADES.  This means perpetual recession/depression ahead.  If there are a declining number of new workers, there is declining demand for new houses, new furniture, new appliances, new cars, etc. Demand has already been declining because population growth is declining, including young people. All of this causes economies to suffer across the world. These trends are irreversible. We've already been in near-recession but governments are manipulating the data to hide it.


World Population Is Going Negative This Year and Is Negative for Decades Ahead. Declining Population Means Declining Economies For Decades Ahead -- Recession Without End.  (Graph by Chris Hamilton at Econimica blog)

Population Growth in All The Important Economies (Excluding Africa) Has Slowed And Will Decline for Decades Ahead.  Note That Debt Began To Balloon Just After The Peak in Population Growth In 1981. Debt Is Now Rising Exponentially As Pop Growth Slows.

Planet Of The Apes Returns to South Africa

Zimbabwe is just now expelling it's idiot President-for-life, Mugabe, a true one-man wrecking ball for Zimbabwe. I guess it's an accomplishment, since it took forever to get rid of that crazy negro Idi Amin in Uganda, who left that country in a entirely predicable economic and human disaster.

There is little evidence that black nations, or any majority black community, can govern themselves in any satisfactory way. Case in point is South Africa. Now that it's governed by the black majority, things are (predictably) going nowhere but downhill. Already, electric power has become intermittent. It gets worse. Now they have a Socialist President (Zuma) who is entirely willing to follow Mugabe's lead to confiscate the land (without compensation) which belongs to white farmers. Mugabe transferred white farm land to blacks, and the nation suffered famine. The blacks had no idea of how to farm!! That set in motion money printing that resulting in devastating hyperinflation years later.

The vast majority (90+%) of farms transferred to Blacks will fail and those people will return to the city or home town. So, the result is just plain and utter destruction. What is not commonly known is that the SA government owns a huge amount of land that could be distributed to potential black farmers. But the truth is that very few Blacks want to be farmers at all!!  So this entire scheme is a joke, just like Black leadership and their so-called intelligence. Welcome to planet of the apes.

It's not just land confiscation, but Zuma wants to put the Central Bank under government control. This of course is a disaster. Excess credit growth and money printing will only end in tears, misery and poverty. Already it's leading to an exodus of foreign investment capital from the country.

The further alienation, and discrimination of White persons will lead to a brain drain as Whites leave the country. This will lead to even further decline. Another scenario is some kind of armed conflict where Whites defend themselves against these radical Negros (like Planet of the Apes?).

But dysfunction, poverty, tyranny, violence and misery is the norm in Africa since there is such little intelligence on the continent---certainly insufficient intelligence for creating any lasting prosperity or peace. It will take 1000s of years for any evolution or change---maybe longer.

I have a proposal.  The USA should allow White South Africans to immigrate here, and we should  simultaneously create a financial package that encourages US Blacks to relocate permanently (irrevocably) to South Africa!! 

From Zero Hedge:

South Africa’s ruling African National Congress gushed a double whammy of capital-flight-creating rulings this afternoon. The Rand is tumbling on Bloomberg headlines that the ANC is said to seek constitutional changes for land expropriation (from whites) without compensation, but perhaps even more worrisome, the ruling party has decided that the Reserve Bank must be wholly owned by the state:
  • SOUTH AFRICA'S ANC ECONOMIC COMMITTEE CHAIR GODONGWANA SPEAKS
  • S.AFRICA ANC SEEKS CONSTITUTION CHANGES FOR LAND EXPROPRIATION
  • S. AFRICA'S ANC SAYS LAND EXPROPRIATION MUSTN'T HURT ECONOMY
  • S. AFRICA'S ANC SAID TO DECIDE CENTRAL BANK MUST BE STATE-OWNED
Enoch Godongwana, head of the party’s economic transformation committee, told reporters that ANC’s National Executive Committee will seek an amendment to the constitution to allow for land expropriation, noting that the confiscation must be sustainable and mustn’t damage economy and food production.

South Africa’s ruling party has also accepted a proposal that the central bank should be wholly state-owned rather than an institution with private shareholders, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Delegates at the African National Congress’ elective conference in Johannesburg decided 100 percent of the Reserve Bank should belong to the government, said the people who asked not to be identified because it hasn’t been made public yet.

Welcome to the return to Planet of the Apes in South Africa.

Black Kids Basically Can't Perform in US High Schools Part 2

To a great extent, the US Government's student loan program is a giant welfare program to occupy young adults and "keep them off the streets."  It's especially true of Black kids. 

By the time black kids reach Grade 12, some 50% have already flunked out.  Of the remainder, only 7% and 17% of those kids perform at "proficient" levels in math and reading, respectively.  So less than ~10% of black kids can perform at Grade 12 levels, but 70% are going to college thanks to "free" US Government students loans!!  And virtually none of these loans to Blacks will be paid back. You can safely bet that $Trillions of these loans will be forgiven and put on the taxpayer's debt load and a disproportionate amount of those loans forgiven will be those made to blacks. 

Overall then, only 3.5% to 8.5% of all blacks can do school work expected of 18 year old high school seniors. This is entirely consistent with black IQ distributions where less than ~10% of the black population has an IQ of 100 or more (100 is the white average).  A score of 100 signifies a mental age of 18 years old or that of a high school senior. The vast majority of Blacks are basically stuck at or below the 9th grade level or age 14 for their entire lives. And every other standardized test says the same thing.

This explains nearly everything about the Black cultural divide in the US. It's not much different for Arab or other minorities either. After all, only N. Europeans and E. Asians have median IQs of 100 or greater. Everyone else's median is MUCH lower at 80 to 90. It's the basis of the cultural clashes with Whites and Arabs in Europe and with Whites and Blacks in the US.

And it explains why Blacks would be happier living in all black communities, since they wouldn't suffer the humiliation of trying to compete with White kids and failing at it. Perhaps segregation was a natural and peaceful way to coexist?  That said, the legal "leveling of the playing field" had to done, but "busing" and "desegregation" was a pet project from judicial activist judges who will NEVER be held to account for their failures.

From Sheriff David Clarke:

When all 164 of Washington D.C. Frank W. Ballou Senior High School’s graduating seniors last year applied for and were accepted to college, the whole community—students, teachers, administrators, parents, and education reformers—had reason to celebrate the achievements of these obviously hard-working graduates. With a graduating class the school system considered “academically disadvantaged,” someone in the school district should have smelled a rat.

After all, 98 percent of Ballou’s 930 students were African-Americans, and two percent were Hispanic/Latino, according to data from the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) system. One hundred percent of them were considered “academically disadvantaged” by the system. Kids like this deserve the great opportunity that a high-quality, character-building education can help provide. There was a time when good educators, in fact, would tirelessly fight to give it to them. Those days are apparently over.

Sadly, this happy story collapsed in November, when an investigation by WAMU and NPR found that the much-ballyhooed Ballou graduated dozens of these students despite high rates of unexcused absences throughout their senior year. Half of them missed more than three months of school. One in five was absent more than present. When kids don’t show up for class, no learning can take place. And many continue to be perplexed about the growing achievement gap between black and Hispanic kids and their white counterparts. These truancy rates are a big part of the problem.

Some teachers, saying they felt pressure to pass failing students and get them to graduation, cooperated with the investigation. An internal e-mail shows that in April, just two months before the end of the school year, only 57 students were on track to graduate. Many of the others could scarcely read or write.

All of which means the graduation jubilation in June was not, in any way, justified. Put bluntly, Ballou’s administrators and some teachers cooked the books, used taxpayer money to commit fraud, and above all harmed poor black youths and their futures the most. Quite an indictment.

Perhaps even more alarmingly, NPR’s report led teachers from around the country to share similar situations in many other districts. This is a nationwide academic scandal in K-12 urban school districts, not to mention the serious disciplinary issues they have.

In late November, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and DCPS Chancellor Antwan Wilson announced two investigations arising out of the Ballou deceit. One will be conducted by D.C. State Superintendent of Education Hanseul Kang and is slated for completion later this month. Another will be led by two deputy DCPS chancellors who are examining the problem system-wide. I hold out little hope that anything more will come out of this than for the school district to attribute the problem to a lack of teacher training or a misunderstanding with no intent to deceive.

The D.C. Council’s education committee held a lengthy hearing on the matter in mid-December, and Ballou principal Yetunde Reeves has been reassigned, pending the outcome. That is likely the worst of what will happen to her, because the teaching establishment tends to punish only by reassignment.

Two things were left out of the story. First, where were the parents? They had to have some inkling that their son or daughter was not attending school regularly and certainly were not learning. They have a duty to see that their child shows up to school everyday in a state of readiness to learn. Second, what colleges accepted the kids who can’t read or write? They should be outed.

Whoever is responsible for perpetrating, encouraging, or tolerating this Ballou fraud should be held as accountable as those who were behind the Enron scandal. Having helped to deny real opportunity to mostly poor black kids who deserved it, the fraudsters should receive what every such crook deserves. Jail.

Faith Is Not Believing The Unbelievable

A relative of mine was explaining to me that for Christians to accept the Holy Trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that they must believe that Jesus was literally and physically resurrected or "the whole thing falls apart."

If you don't believe in levitated dead bodies and the "whole thing falls apart," then it's a very shaky edifice in the 21st century, isn't it? Since no dead body has ever physically re-animated in thousands of years, it's unlikely that it ever happened, so it's a very shaky foundation indeed.

I can't claim to completely understand the symbolism of the Holy Trinity. But do I really need to? And why create a "litmus" test that requires me to believe the unbelievable? Why aren't we satisfied with the simple understanding that the nature of God was revealed by Jesus--and that same God remains the core and ground of our being for each of us today? And with our death, the deepest part of our being likely persists unchanged beyond our physical death. (No one knows if our self-awareness persists after death.)  See my blog post "A Theology For The 21st Century."

Faith should not be about believing the unbelievable. As a man of science, I don't literally believe in most of the miracle stories throughout the Bible. I have good company. Thomas Jefferson worked on a version of the New Testament where he removed all of the miracle stories to leave only the moral teachings.

I don’t believe in the literal resurrection of Jesus; but I accept that it’s a story with huge meaning. Jesus’s followers had just suffered the most humiliating and heart-breaking defeat conceivable. For it to happen to the man in whom his followers could see the divine-itself is beyond horrible. His followers could see that Jesus and his teachings revealed the “the beyond within our midst”,“ultimate ground of our being", "our ultimate reality”and THE MEANING OF LIFE ITSELF!

For his followers to see such a humiliating end at the hands of the ham-handed, amoral political authorities is absolutely intolerable. That could not stand!! So, over time his followers, the early Jesus movement and early Church had to protect and preserve his legacy. The resurrection stories did this and became biblical canon. They COULD NOT ALLOW his devastating and unjust crucifixion to end his story! This is the exact point where life, depth and meaning is captured by myth. So yeah, I believe that Jesus is fully God and fully human.

I recently was at the gym and I noticed one of the young gym instructors working with a disabled man. I was close enough to see how attentive, empathetic and supportive this young guy was, like he was bending over backwards to “will the good” for his client. As I was watching, I could see empathy, goodwill and even beauty. I suddenly understood that I was witnessing something close to the meaning of life-itself; maybe the nature of God working in the world. The young instructor was responding to a need so beautifully but his client was open to receiving help. I had to move over to a quiet corner of the gym so I could let the tears flow. Thanks to education and experience, I was ready and able to see the depth of that moment; something seemingly ordinary in an ordinary setting. Sometimes movies or books bring me similarly to the depths of meaning. I pretty sure that I know what I saw.

Might this be similar to what Jesus’s followers saw? If so, is it really that different to what the followers of Buddha might have seen?

So God is in plain sight if you know where to look; in acts of kindness, good will and desire for justice for others who we meet---the very definition of 'apape' love. Miracles are not where boulders are moved or where waters are parted but where minds are changed and hearts moved by deep understanding and personal interactions. Think of the reconciliation revealed by the parable of the prodigal son. God is pulling all of us toward the "good" by tugging at our hearts and minds.

It’s clear to even conservative scholars that the Christmas stories of Jesus’ birth were added later by the early Church to complete a “picture.” (This happens a lot in the New Testament. There are also many "sayings" of Jesus that were most likely "written-in" by the early Church.) There’s no historical evidence of any miraculous events occurring anywhere near the time when Jesus was born. In fact, we don’t even know when Jesus was born! But isn’t Christmastime really the most wonderful time of the year? Aren’t billions of people’s lives enriched immensely by these wonderful stories (myths)?? Still convinced that myths don’t have meaning??

It’s important to teach these kinds of things or smart young people will continue to be “turned-off” to Christianity because of a “requirement” to believe the unbelievable.

Leftism On The Run In Latin America and EU

Angela Merkel was never elected by a majority of Germans---she has only been elected by a plurality. Despite this, she has dictated policy to member states like she was a tyrant. For example, no member state was allowed to vote regarding the mass Muslim migration policy disaster.

Leftists don't like Democracy because the people will eventually vote you out. Voters recently voted Merkel's party out of power. Her SPD party's support has collapsed in the recent election and Merkel is groveling to somehow stay in power. It's unlikely she'll survive. She SHOULDN'T survive.

Right-wing or Center-Right parties and their candidates have recently won elections in Poland, Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary---all vowing to turn away illegal migrants and fight the EU. THEIR governments truly represent the people, NOT the EU.

Leftists don't permit any dissent either. The EU is going after Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic with legal measures to punish their conservative governments that refuse to take any illegal Muslim migrants. These countries weren't given a choice! There is no democracy in Europe! Now Poland is being targeted with the harshest of sanctions for exercising good judgement and following the will of the Polish people.  The EU doesn't give a damn about Polish people!

Only Hungary and Poland have completely escaped the rash of Muslim murders afflicting all the other countries. They were entirely correct to keep these people out.  Such stark truth has to be stifled!!

Orwell's 1984 is in full effect in Europe. Truth telling is now prosecuted. Any politician like LePen and Girt Wilders are prosecuted to force them from politics altogether.  What an incredible shame. It's really criminal.

Britain voted to leave the EU altogether and the EU is determined to punish them harshly. The loss of sovereignty to the EU was the reason. Brexit voters rejected Germany's insane migration power grab, rejected excessive EU regulations and the overruling of British court/law by European courts in Brussels.  It was all too much.

And now the EU wants to punish Britain to make an example. The EU doesn't want any other country think that they can escape their stifling Socialist "paradise" without huge consequences.  But escape they will or they will all go down together. It is widely known that the population of Greece wants to leave the EU. Their people's will has been completely denied by every politician.

Tonight, Catalonia's independence movement won a narrow majority in election results. This is another direct challenge to the dictatorial and pro-EU Prime Minister Rajoy who recently used military force to rough-up little old ladies who had the temerity of showing-up for mass street protests in Catalonia.  

In Italy, the center-right coalition of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is now on the road to a major come-back gathering 36% of the polls, which is the strongest political party in Italy right now. The second party in line is also the anti-Euro Five-Star movement coming in at 28.2%.

If the polls are correct and the election took place in Italy today, 64.2% of the people would vote AGAINST the EU.


In recent weeks, even Corsica elected a an anti-EU politician as President.

Latin America


After the disastrous Christina De Kirchner, Argentina elected a sensible center-right party led by Macri. Argentina has been suffering from 100 years of failure by a constant stream of Leftist and/or Socialist politicians. The people of Argentina never learn. And they

Maybe they'll learn after they suffer the starvation, extreme poverty, hyperinflation and collapse brought by the scumbag Leftists called Hugo Chavez and Maduro??  They won't.

The political right recently won the Presidency of Chile on Sunday, December 16th. The Leftists in Brazil were swept from power after the impeachment of Dilma Rouseff last year.  Evo Morales of Ecuador is facing sharp criticism for his run for a 4th term as President despite a referendum passed by the people which forbids him from running. Leftists are desperate for power. Evo wants to be President for life like so many Leftist scumbags.

The reason for all the retreat of Leftist politicians in the West is that world economies are falling apart due to poor policies, declining freedoms, excessive bureaucracy, excessive corruption, excessive central planning and excessive regulation.

In short, the world is rejecting the Hillary Clinton's and Obama's of the world because they have only brought failure and stagnation.  That's why Trump won in the US and the political reaction and the trend that he represents is accelerating.

More Government Lies: Inflation Data

From Jim Quinn at Burningplatform blog:

Every month the government apparatchiks at the Bureau of Lies and Scams (BLS) dutifully announces inflation is still running below 2%. Janet Yellen then gives a speech where she notes her concern inflation is too low and she needs to keep interest rates near zero to save humanity from the scourge of too low inflation. I don’t know how I could survive without 2% inflation reducing my purchasing power.

This week they reported year over year inflation of 1.9%. Just right to keep Janet from raising rates and keeping the stock market on track for new record highs. According to our beloved bureaucrats, after they have sliced, diced, massaged and manipulated the data, you’ve experienced annual inflation of 2.1% since 2000. If you believe that, I’ve got a great real estate deal for you in North Korea on the border with South Korea.

The lies built into the politically motivated CPI figure are designed to screw senior citizens, bond investors, and average hard working Americans who depend upon annual salary increases to keep their heads above water. Corporations are able to point to the low levels of CPI as the reason they don’t need to provide higher salary increases. The government can get away with providing little or no Social Security increases to senior citizens by purposely under-reporting inflation based upon academic theories put forth by captured Ivy League pinheads paid off by the Deep State.

The chart below provides the government reported cumulative increases in key categories since 2000. Not only does the government purposely under-report the increases in these costs, they also purposely under-weight the significance of particular categories in order to reduce the reported level of inflation. Some of these categories show significant increases, but they are far lower than what average Americans are actually experiencing in the real world.

CPI Components
Obvious evidence that reported CPI inflation is a fraud from the BLS
One of the outrageous examples of how the government uses academic gibberish about product improvements to drastically under-report CPI is how they report new vehicle inflation. The average price of a new car in 2000 was $22,000. Today, the average price is $34,500. That’s a 57% increase. The BLS bullshit artists have the gall to report new vehicle inflation of a whopping 2% since 2000.

They have “adjusted” away 55% of the actual increase by saying airbags and other unnecessary technological baubles improved automobiles to such an extent, prices didn’t really go up. What a fucking joke. Having your ass warmed with the push of a button didn’t put the extra $12,500 in your bank account to pay for that car. And new vehicles account for 3.6% of the CPI calculation, while health insurance accounts for 1% of the weighting. Yeah, that reflects reality.

Another outrageous example of under-reporting inflation is in the highest weighted category of housing. It is supposed to reflect the cost of rent and home ownership. The owners equivalent rent calculation is purposely opaque in order to suppress the true cost increase. Median home prices were $165,000 in 2000 and are currently $317,000, a 92% increase. The average rent of $475 in 2000 has risen to $910 today, also a 92% increase. So it makes total sense for the BLS propagandists to report only a 53% increase in housing since 2000. I’m sure their academic model adjusted the true increase downward by 39% due to some obscure algorithm created by a Princeton economics professor.

Medical care advancing by 87% since 2000 sounds substantial, but that only equates to annual inflation of 3.5%. I’d love to find anyone in this country who has only seen their medical costs rise by 3.5% per year. The blatantly shameful falsification of medical inflation is evident to anyone living through the current Obamacare nightmare. According to these BLS prevaricators, health insurance has only risen by 21% since the passage of the Obamacare abortion bill. That lie is beyond comprehension as anyone living in the real world has likely experienced insurance premium increases exceeding 100% since 2009.

I work for the largest employer in Philadelphia, with the most leverage in negotiating insurance premiums with the health insurance complex. I also have tracked my expenditures by category since the 1990’s with Quicken. I know exactly what my medical costs and health insurance costs were in 2009 and what they are today. Let’s do a reality check on the BLS inflation figures of 26% for medical services and 21% for health insurance premiums.

Back in 2009 we had no individual or family deductibles, no co-pays for lab work, and low co-pays for doctor visits. Today, with $1,500 individual deductibles and co-pays 70% higher, our annual medical expenses are 140% higher than they were in 2009, with one less person in the house. That’s slightly more than the BLS fraudulent figure of 26%. Our annual health insurance premiums aren’t 21% higher than 2009. They are 90% higher. And I work for an employer that has negotiating leverage. Many Americans are experiencing 200% to 400% increases. This is the real world, not some excel spreadsheet model world created by academics, politicians and bureaucrats.

Could the BLS be as incompetent in capturing medical inflation as they appear or are they massively under-reporting the true inflation and the weighting for the average American family on purpose? I would contend it is purposeful and directed by those in power as a last ditch effort to keep the masses from revolting and hanging them from the nearest lamppost. The Federal Reserve and their Deep State co-conspirators must massively understate true inflation because reporting the truth would require interest rates to be raised, Social Security payments to be increased, and wages to be elevated – blowing a gaping hole in the federal budget and initiating a stock, bond and housing market collapse.

Those in power know their decades of propaganda and social engineering in public schools have dumbed down the masses to such an extent not one in ten could even tell you what CPI stands for, let alone how it is measured. Any critical thinking intelligent person aware of their daily costs knows their true annual inflation rate isn’t 1.9%. It exceeds 5% and has exceeded 5% since 2000. Anyone reading and understanding this article is a dangerous man to the government. We know they are dishonest, insane and intolerable. Our job is to spread discontent until a tipping point is reached. I don’t think we are too far away.

The Real Inflation Rate is Easily Over 4% NOT 2%

Black Kids Not Performing in High Schools

Some 50 years after desegregation and the busing of students to "level the playing field," there has been basically no progress in educating black kids. The main reason: on average, blacks don't have the necessary innate intellectual capability to perform on par with white kids.  Otherwise, we would have seen some sign of improving academic performance. On the other hand, we've seen strong and rising black achievement in athletics and sports which is obviously driven by strong genetic capabilities. You don't mind attributing high achievement in sport as due to genetics as it's so obvious. But most people won't like also attributing poor academic performance to genetics, but it's equally true.  It's just factual, not racist. This might change in 1000 years, so nothing is hopeless.

Black kids median IQ suggests an average mental age of 14 to 15 years old; or stuck at the 9th grade level. How could most of these kids ever perform at 12th grade level??  90% can't!

From Walter Williams at Townhall:

The educational achievement of white youngsters is nothing to write home about, but that achieved by blacks is nothing less than disgraceful. [My note: only 32% and 46% of white grade 12 students are proficient in math and reading, respectively.  But only 7% and 17% of black grade 12 students are "proficient" in math and reading, respectively.  And that's those remaining in school after nearly 60% of black kids have already dropped out of high school entirely.  Despite few black kids performing at Grade 12 levels, 70% of these seniors are going to college -- but they really don't belong there.]

Let's look at a recent example of an educational outcome all too common. In 2016, in 13 of Baltimore's 39 high schools, not a single student scored proficient on the state's mathematics exam. In six other high schools, only one percent tested proficient in math. In raw numbers, of 3,804 Baltimore students took the state's math test, and 14 students tested proficient. Citywide, only 15 percent of Baltimore students passed the state's English test.

Last spring, graduation exercises were held at one Baltimore high school, 90 percent of whose students received the lowest possible math score. Just one student came even close to being proficient. Parents and family members applauded the conferring of diplomas. Some of the students won achievement awards and college scholarships. Baltimore is by no means unique. It's a small part of the ongoing education disaster for black students across the nation. Baltimore schools are not underfunded. Of the nation's 100 largest school systems, Baltimore schools rank third in spending per pupil.  [This story is repeated in every major city with black majorities including Detroit, Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans, etc.  The simple fact is that blacks don't have the intellectual capability.]

Baltimore's black students receive diplomas that attest that they can function at a 12th-grade level when in fact they may not be able to do so at a seventh- or eighth-grade level. These students and their families have little reason to suspect that their diplomas are fraudulent. Thus, if they cannot land a good job, cannot pass a civil service exam, get poor grades in college and flunk out of college, they will attribute their plight to racism. After all, they have a high school diploma, just as a white person has a high school diploma. In their minds, the only explanation for being treated differently is racism.

[My note: the absurdity doesn't end there. Some 70% of black high school graduates go to college even though few, about 7 to 17% of them, are qualified to attend.  So about 80% of these kids are "in college" but don't belong there.  They are there only because of government tuition loan money.  And about 80% of that loan money won't be re-paid.  Just remember that when the government bails out all of these loans and adds it to the national debt.]

Muslims Want Their Own State in Australia

This short video exposé shows why Muslims cause conflict with every country where they exist--even where they are as few as 2 or 3% of the population (also see the article below). They set up their own culture, their own legal system (Sharia), and grow their population exponentially through high birth rates. They don't want to assimilate in a host country and they don't!  In many countries, they want to conquer their host country by out-populating them. It's happening in Israel right now and will be so in Europe given enough time. Furthermore, their leaders are all supremacists and they strong-arm any "infidels" who dare enter their "domain." And much of their education is focused on religious "education" with little math or science. This keeps their populations compliant, poor and subservient to their "masters" who are the religious leaders. Iran's system of theocracy is a model for Muslims. They don't want democracy, they want a caliphate!!

As a group, they are not compatible with liberal Western Democracy.

Remember, significant minorities of foreign populations believe in violence to "protect" or advance their religious domination. Here's the video below and the link for it is here.

Based on Accomplishments, White People ARE Superior

I'm tired of hearing from minorities complaining about "White Privilege" or otherwise denigrating White people as if white people are the big problem in our country. Nearly all of these complainers are minority Democrats; who have become the anti-white party in a country of 70% white people.

The simple truth is that about 99% of all the world's technological, scientific, medical, engineering and philosophical advancements and inventions were conceived and developed by white people. Not only that, but white people, mostly English-speaking people, invented political, personal and economic freedom, religious freedom, rule of law, guaranteed rights and personal liberty that are now uniquely enshrined in our law.

There is a 1000 year history of Anglo ideas and philosophies, dating from Pre-Norman times to the Magna Carta and beyond, that ultimately culminated in the exceptional US Constitution. These outstanding ideas, combined with the work ethic and Judeo-Christian ethic of mostly white European immigrants to the US, led to the most successful and vibrant political, economic and social "experiment" ever seen in world history: the USA. Our Constitutional government and our prosperity has been the envy of the world for 230 years now. You could say that it is white people who invented modern civilization. And few nations, except the mostly white nations of the British commonwealth, have successfully emulated the US success.

Yes, history is a brutal, unfair and bloody place for all of mankind, but it was white, mostly English-speaking people, that were the first cultures to eliminate slavery that was a scourge of the earth for 5000+ years. By the late 18th century, in Philadelphia, Paris and London, concurrent discussions about eliminating slavery were taking place and soon after, slavery was eliminated in their countries and colonies.  In contrast and as an extreme example, slavery was only outlawed in Mauritania in 2007!

Here's just some of the zillions of other accomplishments of white people (from Burning Platform):
Look around you. Can you find anything with a moving part that was not invented by whites? Anything electronic? Cars, telephones, computers, aircraft, antibiotics, on and on–all sprang from the minds of white people. You are not supposed to say such things, and could be run out of a university for it–but ask yourself, if you have the courage: Is it true? [Of course it's true.]

The Hubble Space Telescope: twenty-five hundred years of phenomenally complex math, physics, electronics, optics, and chemistry went into the Hubble. It is entirely a white man’s show. Nobody else has come close. Your professors will not want you to think this. They will not want you to think. But you have a mind. Use it.

Look around your university. Who do you see taking the hard subjects–math, chemistry, physics, engineering, philosophy, computer science? Whites and Asians…right? Are they the kind of people who complain constantly about White Privilege? You may notice a pattern here: Those who can, do. The rest bitch and moan.
Take the Hadron Collider, a gigantic particle accelerator at CERN, in Switzerland, a massive instrument for research in subatomic physics. It is one of the greatest and most challenging projects of humanity. The Japanese could do this if they wanted to badly enough and soon, perhaps, the Chinese. They didn’t. The technology is a white man’s show, starting from Athens 2500 years ago. Are you sure you should be ashamed of this?
Here's just a few other mostly-white accomplishments: Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, differential equations, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-P hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Skyscrapers. The piano. The harpsichord. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera again and again.
If you talk about these accomplishments on college campuses, in front of black kids, you will be labeled "white supremacist!" But this is just sour grapes. US blacks should also be more realistic about their abilities and they'd be more happy. Their 'sour grapes' attitude brings unhappiness. And miserable they are.

Conversely, most Latinos and Asians correctly respect white people and their unmatched accomplishments. They accept that they are not as accomplished as the Northern Europeans and their descendants. Instead, they work hard to emulate this success. Here's the thing; acceptance of yourself realistically in the "pecking order" of abilities and culture leads to personal happiness. Latinos and Asians are happy people as they leap-frog blacks to prosperity. 

Rather than be angry, black folks should be more grateful too. Black people in modern America are able to enjoy our peace and prosperity. Unlike pre-1960 America, they can freely live in white and/or Latino neighborhoods and enjoy the peaceful, orderly, prosperous communities that whites and Latinos have created. Where they are forced by poverty or choice to live in majority black neighborhoods, the conditions are dangerous, impoverished, unhealthy and unhappy. Keep in mind, it could be worse, they could be living in the still deplorable conditions of Africa!  Count your blessings, people.

On campuses, you hear ignorant, uninformed black and Latino students, most of them unqualified to even be in college, complain about "white privilege" or even try to reverse-discriminate against whites. I am reading more and more cases where blacks are self-segregating meetings, dorms, lectures and speeches etc to exclude whites. It's because these black students can't compete with whites in reasoning and logic and they know it.

I'm still thinking about the all-black cast of the Broadway play "Hamilton" where whites were told not to apply to casting calls! Then those same people, all Black, who only read aloud what others have written and therefore only "appear" to be learned and intelligent, lectured the newly-elected VP, Mike Pence, a man who is actually leading the nation. Sorry, but Blacks for the most part are arrogant, ignorant and know nothing.

The entire Leftist culture, blacks, Big Corporate (corrupt) media and Hollywood tries to minimize the wildly successful history of the white northern Europeans who "invented" the social, technological and political foundations for the prosperity, freedom and happiness that a billion people enjoy today in Europe, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand. The problem for the Left is that our genius white Founding Fathers had values that are the very definition of Conservative: They founded a culture that champions self-determination, self-sufficiency, personal responsibility, charity that takes care of your own, the primacy of family, community and church, the worship of God, minimal government and minimal regulation. The Left wants to change all that thinking they have a better way. And they have largely succeeded in upending our conservative heritage. Now we have big government and big corruption that is threatening our financial and social stability, We have excessive regulation and too many idle people living at the expense of others causing our nation to careen toward complete financial and social collapse mostly due to corruption and unsound policies of a massive and incompetent government, a government that is unable to fix all the problems that IT caused.

White persons are under attack in this country by ignorant minorities and the Leftists who dominate our schools and universities. The ridiculous complaint of "White Privilege" shows how intellectually bereft blacks and the so-called social justice warriors are. There is so much ignorance in our country-- and it's mostly found in the ranks of Blacks and Democrats.
