This Chart Shows Just How Bad Unemployment Is Today Compared To The Great Depression

This article was written by Mac Slavo and originally published at SHTFplan.com

While the Obama administration and their mainstream surrogates maintain that the economy is growing at a booming pace, the reality of the situation is starkly different.

According to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics some 94.6 million Americans (age 16 and over) are either not working or have made no effort to find a job. With a population of 320 million, that means nearly one in three people in the United States are currently out of work.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that a record 94,610,000 people (ages 16 and over) were not in the labor force in September. In other words they were neither employed nor had made specific efforts to find work in the prior four weeks.
The number of individuals out of the work force last month — due to discouragement, retirement or otherwise — represented a substantial 579,000 person increase over the most recent record, hit in August, of 94,031,000 people out of the workforce.
Curiously, the official unemployment rate remained unchanged at 5.1%, suggesting that some 95% of people actually have jobs.

But as we’ve repeatedly pointed out, that number has been completely skewed over the last two decades as it fails to account for people who have stopped looking for work (because there are no actual jobs available).

According to John Williams of Shadow Stats, if we were to calculate unemployment using the same metrics as we did during the 1930’s, or even the 1980’s, we’d already be in Great Depression territory. Williams, who utilizes a reporting methodology that accounts for “long-term discouraged workers who were defined out of official existence in 1994,” notes that the real unemployment rate is rapidly approaching 25%.


Now compare the above chart to similar measurements from the 1930’s and you’ll see just how bad things really are:

(via Casey Research)

It’s so bad, in fact, that we have seen sustained unemployment exceeding that of the Great Depression for almost the entirety of Barack Obama’s Presidency.

But how can it be possible to have a full-fledged recovery and record stock prices when nearly one-third of the adult population is not working?

If the government is to be believed, it’s because our economy continues to grow at a pace of about 2%.

But once again, if we calculate the real growth rate and adjust for inflation, we see exactly why jobs are non-existent and getting worse every month.

The following chart made available by Williams shows that despite a positive “official” GDP growth rate being disseminated to the public, the reality is exactly the opposite. The U.S. economy is by all accounts shrinking and has been doing so for the better part of a decade:


We’ve already witnessed numerous shocks to the global economy over recent weeks and the prospects of any sort of stability just went out the window.

There is no recovery. There are no jobs. There is no growth.

The United States, regardless of what is being said by mainstream financial pundits or believed by their TV-watching myrmidons, is now (and has been for quite some time) in a recession.

What’s worse is that most have no clue of how bad things really are or that they are witnessing America’s Second Great Depression.

We have seen many prognostications of what might happen in the Fall of 2015 and beyond. For now, we have avoided the Doomsday event many have feared.

But as The Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington notes, this doesn’t mean we should ignore the real possibility of a wide breadth of potential outcomes from economic malaise and geo-political tensions:
So the world didn’t end, but we should face the facts that our world is exponentially changing. In the last ten years, it has changed so dramatically that many of us do not recognize it.
Riots, extreme climate changes, epidemics, unemployment, political upheaval, I could go on, but I think you get the picture. These changes are the events you should prepare for. Preparing for a singular event is impractical and will leave you exposed and with gaps in your preparedness plan.
That said, if your preps were well-rounded enough, you can insulate yourself from many different forms of disasters: natural, personal, economic, societal, etc. Once you are prepared for a multitude of events, you don’t worry as much. There are always events that are out of our control. The only control we have is to be ready for them the best we can by being prepared, self-reliant, not depending on the system, and changing our perception about disasters.

The collapse that many have suggested will take place at some point in the future is actually happening right here and now.

If the charts above are accurate – and we believe they are – then America is already in the throes of its next Great Depression.

One True Measure Of Stagnation: Not In The Labor Force

From ZeroHedge:

One True Measure of Stagnation: Not in the Labor Force
This is a stark depiction of underlying stagnation: paid work is not being created as population expands.

Heroic efforts are being made to cloak the stagnation of the U.S. economy. One of these is to shift the unemployed work force from the negative-sounding jobless category to the benign-sounding Not in the Labor Force (NILF) category.

But re-labeling stagnation does not magically transform a stagnant economy. To get a sense of long-term stagnation, let's look at the data going back 38 years, to 1977.

NOT IN LABOR FORCE (NILF) 1976 to 2015

I've selected data from three representative eras:
  • The 20-year period from 1977 to 1997, as this encompasses a variety of macro-economic conditions: five years of stagflation and two back-to-back recessions (1977 - 1982), strong growth from 1983 to 1990, a mild recession in 1991, and growth from 1993 to 1997.
  • The period of broad-based expansion from 1982 to 2000
  • The period 2000 to 2015, an era characterized by bubbles, post-bubble crises and low-growth "recovery"
In all cases, I list the Not in Labor Force (NILF) data and the population of the U.S.

1977-01-01: 61.491 million NILF population 220 million

1997-01-01 67.968 million NILF population 272 million

Population rose 52 million 23.6% 

NILF rose 6.477 million 10.5%

1982-07-01 59.838 million NILF (start of boom) population 232 million

2000-07-01 68.880 million NILF (end of boom) population 282 million

Population rose 50 million 22.4% 

NILF rose 9.042 million 15.1%

2000-07-01 68.880 million NILF population 282 million

2015-09-01 94.718 million NILF ("recovery") population 322 million

Population rose 40 million 14.2% 

NILF rose 25.838 million 37.5%

Notice how population growth was 23.6% 1977-1997 while growth of NILF was a mere 10.5% As the population grew, job growth kept NILF to a low rate of expansion. While the population soared by 52 million, only 6.5 million people were added to NILF.

In the golden era of 1982 - 2000, population rose 22.4% while NILF expanded by 15%. Job growth was still strong enough to limit NILF expansion. The population grew by 50 million while NILF expanded by 9 million.

But by the present era, Not in the Labor Force expanded by 37.5% while population grew by only 14.2%. This chart shows the difference between the two eras: those Not in the Labor Force soared by an unprecedented 26 million people--a staggering 15.6% of the nation's work force of 166 million. (Roughly 140 million people have some sort of employment or self-employment, though millions of these earn less than $10,000 a year, so classifying them as "employed" is a bit of a stretch).

This is a stark depiction of underlying stagnation: paid work is not being created as population expands. Those lacking paid work are not just impoverished; they lose the skills and will to work, a loss to the nation in more than economic vitality.

Welcome To The Future: Downward Mobility & Social Depression

From ZeroHedge:

Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,

If you don't think these definitions apply, please check back in a year.

The mainstream is finally waking up to the future of the American Dream: downward mobility for all but the top 10% of households. A recent Atlantic article fleshed out the zeitgeist with survey data that suggests the Great Middle Class/Nouveau Proletariat is also waking up to a future of downward mobility: The Downsizing of the American Dream: People used to believe they would someday move on up in the world. Now they’re more concerned with just holding on to what they have.

I dug into the financial and social realities of what it takes to be middle class in today's economy: Are You Really Middle Class?

The reality is that the middle class has been reduced to the sliver just below the top 5%--if we use the standards of the prosperous 1960s as baseline.

The downward mobility isn't just financial--it's a decline in political power, control of one's work and income-producing assets. This article reminds us of what the middle class once represented: What Middle Class? How bourgeois America is getting recast as a proletariat.

The costs of trying to maintain a toehold in the upper-middle class are illuminated in these recent articles on health and healthcare--both part of the downward mobility:

Health Care Slavery and Overwork

How a toxic workplace could, literally, destroy your health

We're afraid our work is killing us, and we are right

This reappraisal of the American Dream is also triggering a reappraisal of the middle class in the decades of widespread prosperity: The Myth of the Middle Class: Have Most Americans Always Been Poor?

And here's the financial reality for the bottom 90%: declining real income:

Downward mobility excels in creating and distributing what I term social defeat: In my lexicon, social defeat is a spectrum of anxiety, insecurity, chronic stress, powerlessness, and fear of declining social status.

One aspect of social defeat is the emptiness we experience when prosperity does not deliver the promised sense of fulfillment. Here is one example: A recent sociological study compared wealthy Hong Kong residents’ sense of contentment with those of the immigrant maids who serve the moneyed Elites. The study found that the maids were much happier than their wealthy masters, who were not infrequently suicidal and depressed.

The maids, on the other hand, had a trustworthy group – other maids they met with on their one day off – and the coherent purpose provided by their support of their families back home.

Downward mobility and social defeat lead to social depression. Here are the conditions that characterize social depression:

1. High expectations of endless rising prosperity have been instilled in generations of citizens as a birthright.

2. Part-time and unemployed people are marginalized, not just financially but socially.

3. Widening income/wealth disparity as those in the top 10% pull away from the shrinking middle class.

4. A systemic decline in social/economic mobility as it becomes increasingly difficult to move from dependence on the state (welfare) or one's parents to financial independence.

5. A widening disconnect between higher education and employment: a college/university degree no longer guarantees a stable, good-paying job.

6. A failure in the Status Quo institutions and mainstream media to recognize social recession as a reality.

7. A systemic failure of imagination within state and private-sector institutions on how to address social recession issues.

8. The abandonment of middle class aspirations by the generations ensnared by the social recession: young people no longer aspire to (or cannot afford) consumerist status symbols such as luxury autos or homeownership.

9. A generational abandonment of marriage, families and independent households as these are no longer affordable to those with part-time or unstable employment, i.e. what I have termed (following Jeremy Rifkin) the end of work.

10. A loss of hope in the young generations as a result of the above conditions.

If you don't think these apply, please check back in a year. We'll have a firmer grasp of social depression in October 2016.

What We Can Expect If Congress Passes TPP


Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Deal Reached, Tell Congress To Vote NAY!

From JBS:

On Monday, October 5, 2015, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman announced that the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations have finally reached an agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). "We, the trade ministers of Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, United States, and Vietnam are pleased to announce that we have successfully concluded the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiation," said U.S. Trade Representative Froman at the Trans-Pacific Partnership Ministerial Press Conference, held in Atlanta, Georgia.

With a consensus now reached among the 12 participatory TPP nations, a final official text of the TPP is soon expected to be drafted prior to reaching lawmakers. According to Congressional Quarterly (CQ), "Officials still have to draft and review what they have agreed in principle."

Although CQ also states that "Congress is likely to vote on the agreement in early 2016," Congressional lawmakers could in fact vote on the agreement as early as this year (2015) pending how quickly the final TPP text is drafted and subsequently transmitted to Congress. The New York Times estimates that the "full 30-chapter text will not be available for perhaps a month."

Congress' narrow passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or "fast track" earlier this year, ensures an expedited up-or-down vote without debate or amendment for the final TPP agreement.

As The New American magazine noted in an online article, posted on March 31, 2015, about WikiLeaks unauthorized release of key chapters of the TPP agreement, one of the most obviously objectionable portions of the TPP texts is the outrageous assertion that the documents remain secret even after they are finally passed! The New American reported:
Not only are the negotiations being conducted in secrecy, and not only are the TPP text documents being withheld from the public and the public's elected representatives, but even more outrageous is the effort by the TPP negotiators to keep the agreement (or at least certain portions of the agreement and the negotiating process) secret for four years after it goes into effect!

Chapter 2 of the TPP text begins the following classification notice:
Derived from: Classification Guidance

dated March 4, 2010

Reason: 1.4(b)
Declassify on: Four years from entry into

force of the TPP agreement or,

if no agreement enters into

force, four years from the close

of the negotiations.

* This document must be protected from

unauthorized disclosure, but may be mailed or

transmitted over unclassified e-mail or fax,

discussed over unsecured phone lines, and

stored on unclassified computer systems. It

must be stored in a locked or secured building,

room, or container.

Despite Froman's announcement of a final TPP accord reached, its text is likely to remain classified from the American public for several years even after they have been passed by Congress. Although the full contents of what has been agreed to may not become known for several years, we already do know some of the provisions contained in the insidious anti-sovereignty TPP agreement thanks to the courageousness of certain statesmen who have read the agreement.

After visiting the secret reading room where a draft copy of the TPP is housed, in Congress, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alab.) wrote an open letter to President Obama, inquiring and warning about how the TPP "creates a new transnational governance structure known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission." Of the secretive proposed TPP Commission, Sen. Sessions further elaborated and likening it the European Union (EU), "The details of this new governance commission are extremely broad and have the hallmarks of a nascent European Union, with many similarities."

The governing executive body of the EU is the European Commission (EC). And like the TPP, the EU also began as an ostensibly simple trade agreement known as the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) in 1952, established by the Treaty of Paris the previous year.

Considering the rapid growth and transformation of the ECSC into the supranational entity that the EU is today, we dare not take Senator Sessions' concerns lightly. Henceforth, it is imperative that we put a stop to it by contacting our congressional lawmakers and urge them to oppose final passage of the TPP.

Please phone your representative (202-225-3121) and senators (202-224-3121) in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which would abrogate U.S. national sovereignty and independence to a supranational EU-style Trans-Pacific Union.

Click here to send an editable pre-written email to your representative and senators and urge them to oppose and vote NAY on passage of the final TPP agreement.




Alert! Trojan horse" Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized


Wage Apocalypse for the American man: Typical male worker earned less in 2014 than in 1973.

From My Budget 360

The middle class destruction train is moving full steam ahead if we are to examine Census figures closely. And the American male has a first-class ticket on this express train to wage destruction. According to the recently released Census figures full-time working males are earning less than they did in 1973 adjusting for inflation. Purchasing power matters greatly even though there is this ongoing narrative that we are experiencing very little inflation. Has anyone taken a look at housing costs, healthcare costs, or even college tuition? The problem at the core of this salary stagnation is that productivity gains are simply not trickling down to the typical worker. The Great Recession largely smashed male employment. Males lost 3 out of 4 jobs in the Great Recession. The financial crisis impacted everyone, male and female, but there is some interesting data to be examined from the figures for full-time working males.

Recession impact on males

One of the caveats I will begin with is that the typical (median) American household earns about $52,000 per year. This is important to note because we have a massive number of Americans working in part-time jobs and also,low-wage fields.

What we will examine below is for full-time male workers (meaning fully employed year round). Take a look at this chart first:

The typical full-time working male is earning less than he did in 1973. In 1973 a man with a full-time job was earning $53,294 measured in 2014 dollars. The latest Census data finds that a full-time working man today is making $50,383. Keep in mind this is for those that actually have a job. We have more than 94 million Americans that are “not in the labor force” a record by any measure.

The pay gap for women is still large but the median female worker saw their pay increase by more than 30% between 1973 and 2014 from $39,621 to $30,182. This is largely driven by the gains made in educational attainment. Of course the challenge today for both men and women is finding a good college education that won’t put you into massive student debt.

What is going on here? One major contributing factor is that productivity gains are simply not being passed on to workers:

While output per hour of work is up nearly 2.5 times wages are simply not keeping track. Part of the issue is that there is a growing income inequality in the nation. This is simply a fact. We have a larger financier class in the economy that depends on economic rents.

Take for example large investment banks. They use their financial power to buy politicians to bend the rules to their favor. This allowed many of them to garner lucrative bailout deals that ultimately made real world impacts. For example, many large banks used nearly free money (in terms of interest rates) to borrow and bought up a large number of single family homes. Many of these homes were bought at discount from families in the midst of foreclosure. Now, these homes are increasing in value on short supply and rents are being hiked up while incomes are stagnant. No real true economic gains are had here really – just shuffling money from the productive class to the rentier class. Those too big to fail banks? They are now much larger.

The housing crisis really impacted men as well. Good construction jobs were smashed as the housing crisis unfolded. We have a demand for affordable homes but builders realize that the whims of the banking system can shift very quickly and younger Americans are not in a position to buy. Just look at construction jobs in the US:

We are down 1.3 million construction jobs since the peak construction boom. Instead of better paying jobs growing, we are seeing more low-wage labor dominating the marketplace. The economy is sending males back into the past of 1973 when it comes to wages.

The UN New World Global Police Force! The Death Of The US Constitution!


Oregon Massacre, Part Three: Things to Remember When You Are Face to Face With Evil.

From Mike Vanderboegh:

We are beginning to get a sense of the shooter in the Oregon Massacre and it seems to me to be as clear a case of demonic possession as you are likely to find. The little pissant who couldn't get a date lived with his momma and craved attention, saying "The more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight." He reportedly was "filled with hate" and executed Christians after identifying them with shots to the head.
We also now know that all his weapons were purchased legally and that he wrote that he would be "welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil." Additionally, we know that despite claims of heroic intervention by the cops to save the situation, in fact he died by suicide when they arrived. and that, predictably, the massacre took place in the laughably cruel confines of what the collectivists are pleased to call a "gun free zone." We also have the statement from the college leadership that they have no intention of changing and that the welcome mat is still out for any mass murderer who wishes to take advantage of such a "death zone."
The talking head shows are filled with discussions about "mental illness" and the need to disarm the citizenry a la Australia and Britain in some sort of Soviet psychiatry meets the Department of Pre-Crime scheme to make us all "safe." Of course such safety is illusory and merely a con job to rob the rest of us of our God-given and inalienable liberty. For just as with every collectivist tyranny, mere opposition to the regime is accepted as an obvious case of lunacy. Why do you think they call us "gun nuts" and "religious fanatics?"
Yet as Jack Kerwick wrote at the time of the last slaughter of Christians in Charleston,
"Either a person is evil or he is 'mentally ill.' He can’t be both. Either his actions are evil, or they are symptoms of an illness. They can’t be both."
(A)llusions to “gun violence” and “mental health” are especially pernicious inasmuch as they obscure the evil nature of the deed being explained. To see just how egregious an offense this is, consider some analogies. Imagine if, while discussing the Holocaust, we spoke about “gas chamber violence,” or while discussing Islamic State mass beheadings, we talked instead of “machete violence.” Or suppose that discussions of the lynching of blacks were peppered with references to “rope violence.” None of this would sit well with decent human beings, for it is clear, or at least it is thought that it should be clear, that such descriptions miss entirely that which is fundamental to the phenomena being described—the perpetrators responsible for these wicked deeds.
As I wrote then, commenting upon Kerwick:
(A)dmitting that there is unrelenting evil in the world leads back to the Devil which leads back to God, and overarching moral authority other than their (the collectivists') own cannot be conceded or tolerated. It was not accidentally that Obama criticized people who "cling to their Bibles and their guns." Collectivists view both as deadly dangers to their appetites.
And here I arrive at the central point that many folks who approach this problem from a mere secular point of view not only fail to grasp but reject out of hand. You cannot successfully confront evil without considering where it comes from and recognizing this basic truth: evils in all their forms are merely permutations of the eternal struggle between good and evil, between God and Satan, and you cannot win against it on your own. You must rely upon faith in God to win the battle against evil, which is both within and without you. Indeed, as Christians the rest of us understand that the final battle of this war will be won by God alone, no matter how successful we are in the skirmishes leading up to it. God doesn't command us to win in these fights, but he does command us to fight. He commands us to stand. Both in our daily activities in the world and in our own internal struggle against the "powers and principalities" that seek to corrupt us to the Devil's purposes.
As Ephesians 6:10–12 says:
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
These are crucial truths, for we can only stand strong in the Lord’s power not our own alone, that it is God’s armor that protects us, and that our battle is ultimately against spiritual forces of evil in the world.
This is indeed spiritual warfare on all its fronts. For those of you who are put off by the task of seeking answers directly from the Bible, I would commend to all of you a slim volume recently published that explains this in detail: A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-18.
Together, Tolkien and Lewis took their shattering experiences of the evils of the "Great War" and charted out a middle ground between the unremitting nihilistic despair of many of others and the collectivist errors of Bolshevism, Nazism, eugenics and a plethora of other collectivisms that some turned to. What is central to both the Narnia and Middle Earth tales is the understanding that only with the overarching power of God to help us take up the battle can we win the many fights against evil both within and without. Only within this framework can true peace and liberty be achieved. In both tales we see that it is the inner struggle against the corrupting influence of evil that makes even tactical success against in our day-to-day external lives possible.
This is not a call for a theocratic state. I am, as I have said many times before publicly and privately, a Christian libertarian. With all my faults I trust my own faith to inform and protect me, not to dictate to others (particularly with the force of government) how they must believe. But what I'm saying is that like Tolkien and Lewis, I have come to understand true happiness and liberty only comes from accepting that you can't do it on your own, that you must allow God to shoulder the burden.
So what are we to do when confronted by evil face-to-face as the Christian martyrs of Charleston and Roseburg were? The first and most immediate task is to kill the evildoer with any tool at your disposal in order to protect the innocent. Secondly, it is vital not to let your reaction to such evil corrupt you to do evil yourself.

Parts one and two here and here, respectively.

Why They Grab Your Guns (China/Newtown)

From ppsimmons via FromTheTrenchesWorldReport.com:

Pretend you’re the Regime.

Like Godzilla grabbing high-voltage lines, the Regime needs energy to grow. That means cash. Money for payoffs and pork.

You’ve got 3 sources for this cash: (i) Taxes, (ii) Chinese loans, and (iii) Printing. But lately, taxes are dwindling, since GDP is shrinking and there’s less to tax.

So normally, you’d just borrow more from China. But after watching your terrible management of the USA, China cuts you off.

But you have a secret weapon – the printing press. You order the Treasury, “Start printing. Print $84 Billion a month.” Printing money is great, but soon you’ll hit hyperinflation and collapse the dollar – like Germany did in the 1920’s. Like Venezuela is doing. You know it. China knows it.

So where do you turn? You turn back to China – and make them an offer.


Land Is Gold

Think of America’s natural resources as gold.

Our waterways, minerals, oil, and land are “gold.” The continental USA is the bank surrounding that gold.

To enter the bank and steal that gold, you must get past the guards. But there’s not a couple guards. There’s 300 MILLION guards. And 80 million of them are packing heat.

Americans have shotguns and rifles. They’ve got old guns, they’ve got custom guns with their name engraved, they’ve got pink guns for their daughter’s birthday. And they’re watching for someone to try robbing their gold.

Senators make a living by grabbing control of this gold (land; docks; oil) and doling it out to cronies in exchange for kickbacks and campaign money. Typically, this scheme was financed by Chinese loans. But recently, China cut off Congress, since Congress is running the USA into the ground. After all, what if McCain collapses the dollar and can’t pay China back?

So to keep the gravy train rolling, Senator (pretend it’s McCain) tells China, “We’ll attach land to this deal – so if we DO bankrupt the USA, China (or a local Chinese company) can take possession of these 40,000 acres in Nevada.”


In other words, McCain attaches collateral (Nevada land) to new Chinese loans. This reassures China that if McCain crashes the dollar, China can recover some hard value. This sounds good, until China spots a problem.

That problem is “Billy Bob’s shotgun.”

Standing on top of China’s collateral (40,000 acres in Nevada) is Billy Bob and his neighbors. Most own shotguns. Most have good aim. They don’t care what McCain promised China. They’ll start shooting if China or DHS – or anyone – shows up and tries to take their land.


Upset about this, China says: “What good is that collateral to us? Sure, it’s 40,000 acres in Nevada – but nobody can take that land with Billy Bob living there!”

“Gee, you have a point,” McCain tells China. “Would you feel better if Billy Bob didn’t have guns?”

At this, China perks up. 40,000 acres of DISARMED land could be occupied, no problem. Especially if McCain’s army (DHS) pushes Billy Bob out.


Bundy Ranch

But before the Regime makes a move, they always do a test-run. To weed out mistakes. To gauge your reaction – will it fool you? Before Sandy Hook, their test run was Dunblane (Scotland) – same gun-hoax storyline, different school.

So before the Regime seizes land from Americans, they check your reaction – at Bundy Ranch.

BLM shows up and tries to kick folks off some land. Will townsfolk open fire? This time, the standoff might turn into a gunfight:

Since the shortcut (land grabs) will get ugly, the Regime chooses the long road. Instead of opening fire (and getting clobbered by armed citizens), the Regime hops aboard the Gun Grab Roadshow – fake shootings across the USA. Promoting these Fake Shootings are (Bloomberg-funded) front groups like Everytown For Gun Safety, MAIG (Mayors Against Illegal Guns), and Moms Demand Action:


So, instead of going to war with 80 Million gun owners (and watching DHS lose), the Regime will demonize guns at the state/city level, and remove them from society – step by step.

It will take a while – but as we’ll see, it’s well worth it.

China & Newtown

So far, the Gun Grab Roadshow’s biggest bang was Sandy Hook:

David and Francine Wheeler are PROFESSIONAL ACTORS (film & TV) who claim their “kid died” at Sandy Hook:


$500 Million showered CT after the fake Newtown “shooting.”

Millions went to FELONS and ACTORS to portray “Sandy Hook Parents.” Here, gun-grabbers Nicole Hockley and David Wheeler sell Sandy Hoax on ABCNEWS:

These actors hit the Gun Grab Roadshow, portraying “grieving parents” on a nationwide lobbying tour:


For example, alleged felon Neil Heslin:


But where did that $500 Million “production budget” come from? That funding may have come from China.

Bizarre connections between Sandy Hook and China include (i) A “diplomatic visit” to China by CT Governor Malloy, and (ii) A school stabbing rampage in China, the SAME DAY as Newtown’s fake shooting.

Communist China already banned guns – so they’re working on knives. The Chenpeng Village Primary School “stabbing” happened the SAME DAY as Newtown – so Communists could restrict knife purchases:


After those same-day “massacres,” China cracked down on knife purchases while Governor Malloy pimped gun-grab laws:


Has the USA joined China in a Communist plot to disarm citizens? Did Globalist bankers tell both countries (USA/China), “Disarm your citizens if you want more money?” Is that why both the USA and China staged twin “massacres” the same day?

Is that why children got strong-armed on FOX News? To show China the US Government could abuse citizens, just like Communist China?

Is that why Lieutenant Paul Vance made threats on live TV – to show Globalists his Regime can kill dissent, just like China?


Is that why Obama sent $2.5 Million of hush money to CT Police followed by $2.9 Million of “overtime?” To seize Federal control of local police – just like China does?

Is that why Governor Malloy is on video LYING about his Sandy Hook press conference? When confronted on camera, Malloy claims“some other Dan Malloy” gave his Newtown press conference. How does Governor Malloy openly lie about the “biggest school shooting in US history?” Is Malloy a regional politician controlled by the all-powerful Communist Party – just like in China?

Malloy better get his story straight – because Newtown is collapsing:


And weekly gun hoaxes (like Virginia’s “LIVE TV SHOOTING”) are falling apart within hours:


Bloomberg’s gun-hoax group (MAIG) got exposed as a pack of convicted-felon Mayors:


Gun-grabber Leland Yee (CA State Senator) got busted for arms trafficking:


Citizens are calling for Class Action lawsuits against Monte Frank (Newtown lawyer):


Obama’s gun-grab stunts are becoming obvious:


Americans are outraged over (alleged) Newtown child abuse on LIVE TV:

Meanwhile, New York’s (State Senator) Tony Avella is desperate – trying to ban large knives – similar to China’s “knife registration.”


USA Breakup Value

But why are politicians risking Treason charges to disarm you?

Because the USA – today, with armed citizens – is worth a lot.

But DISARMED, the USA is worth 1,000 times more. Since politicians can break it up, pledge it out, sell off the pieces – without millions of gun owners stopping them.


A disarmed population can’t stop Congress from annexing land, giving seaports to China, handing chunks of America to Soros:


We can barely stop them now – but at least there’s a limit, since we have guns. Without those guns, there’s no limit to the looting. Without those guns, the value of our land (to traitors) skyrockets.

Does that sound paranoid? WND reports that Chinese government economists proposed “A plan to allow Chinese corporations to set up ‘development zones’ in the United States…… to convert into equity the more than $1 trillion in U.S. debt owned by the Chinese government. The next day, Jan. 21, 2013, WND documented the Obama administration began allowing China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the USA.”

A state-by-state list of China’s ownership of American oil and gas can be found at the Wall Street Journal. Meanwhile, citizen efforts to reclaim our lands can be found HERE.

But was BLM’s Bundy Ranch stunt more than a test? Harry Reid and his son “Rory, are both involved in an effort by Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert.” Was Harry Reid trying to seize Bundy Ranch for the Red Chinese? Some say “Absolutely.” Senator Reid’s plot with China’s ENN Energy Group is explored by INFOWARS and WND.

How does the Regime get away with this? They brainwashed us, Soviet style:

Disarmed Robbery

The Regime has robbed us as far as they can – while we still possess firearms. They’ve taken our doctors. They’ve stolen our health plans. They’ve sent jobs and factories overseas, leaving 94 million Americans out of work. Our remaining jobs got downgraded from full-time (40 hours/week) to part-time (28 hours/week).

Our GDP shrinks, year after year. Companies that speak against the Regime get sabotaged by IRS.

In short, there’s nothing left to steal. The Uniparty picked us clean.


The only move left is slicing up the USA. Selling parts to the highest bidder.

And the only thing stopping that is Billy Bob’s shotgun.

That’s why the Regime needs your guns – ASAP.


To snatch your rifles, they invented the Gun Grab Roadshow – fake shootings across the USA to demonize guns.

That’s why Billy Bob is looking straight at the Regime.

That’s why Billy Bob is gearing up.


And that’s why the Boston Marathon “bombing” was Martial Law practice (for when Billy Bob discovers the Gun Grab Roadshow, and flips out):


NRA Forgives Fake Shootings?

What Pisses Me Off About The Oregon Shooting and Chris Mercer-Harper


The US Has Added Three Times More Foreign-Born Workers Than Native-Born Since December 2007

From ZeroHedge:

If you thought the headline jobs print was bad, wait till you see this.

While we will show the quality of the jobs shortly (you guessed it: waiters and bartenders jumped, manufacturing workers tumbled), with the presidential elections, in which immigration has become the key topic coming up, a far more relevant issue is the spread between "native-born" workers (as defined by the BLS), and "foreign-born." Expect the September data to provide much fodder for the upcoming republican and democratic debates.

But before we show what happened, here is a quick glance at the breakdown between full and part-time jobs in September. According to the BLS, 53,000 part-time jobs were added in September. The offset: a drop of 185,000 full-time jobs. Welcome, once again, to the part-time recovery we first profiled in December 2010.

With that out of the way, here is the punchline (which is likely related). While we "know" that a paltry 142K jobs were added according to the Establishment survey, a far more disturbing trend emerges when observing the Household survey, which conveniently breakdown down the number of "native-born" and "foreign-born" workers. In September, the latter rose by 14,000 to 24,928.

That was the good news. The bad news: native-born workers saw their ranks tumble by 262,000!

More disturbing, as the following chart shows, after briefly topping their December 2007 level, native-born jobs (blue line below) are now in danger of once again going back into the red. In the meantime, foreign-born workers are steadily increasing (and helping populate all those "part-time" jobs)

Finally, this is what the native-vs-foreign born discrepancy looks like since December 2007: in the past 8 years, there has been 300% more foreign-born workers added than native-born.

Prepare to hear much more about this statistics in the coming GOP presidential debates.

Participation Rate Crashes: Americans Not In The Labor Force Soar By 579,000 To Record 94.6 Million

From ZeroHedge:

While the September jobs number was an absolute disaster, here is the real punchline: in September, the people not in the labor force soared by a whopping 579,000 to a record 94.6 million, up from the previous record 94.0, even as number of people employed - according to the household survey used to calculate the "5.1%" unemployment rate - tumbled by 236,000 to 148.8 million.

And as a result of this latest surge in people who aren't working, nor want to work, the participation rate crashed yet again, and sliding from 62.6% to 62.4%, it was the lowest since October 1977.
