Numbers Do Not Lie

I, and other bloggers like me, have been accused of “nit-picking” the idiot child that is now in the White House (when he isn’t taking the weekend off for “date-night” with Mishy in Chicago), and not giving him the benefit of the doubt.  We all know the spending bill that the out-of-touch congressional majority just passed is not going to help our economy, in fact, we pretty much agree with the CBO that it is going to flatten our economy in the long run, but here is where the numbers do not lie.  Take the time to read it and do not get overwhelmed by the numbers.  Mr. Schiller has broken it down nicely.

Obama’s Rhetoric Is the Real ‘Catastrophe’

President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. First, he did so to win votes in the November election. He has done so again recently to sway congressional votes for his stimulus package.

In his remarks, every gloomy statistic on the economy becomes a harbinger of doom. As he tells it, today’s economy is the worst since the Great Depression. Without his Recovery and Reinvestment Act, he says, the economy will fall back into that abyss and may never recover.

This fearmongering may be good politics, but it is bad history and bad economics. It is bad history because our current economic woes don’t come close to those of the 1930s. At worst, a comparison to the 1981-82 recession might be appropriate. Consider the job losses that Mr. Obama always cites. In the last year, the U.S. economy shed 3.4 million jobs. That’s a grim statistic for sure, but represents just 2.2% of the labor force. From November 1981 to October 1982, 2.4 million jobs were lost — fewer in number than today, but the labor force was smaller. So 1981-82 job losses totaled 2.2% of the labor force, the same as now.

Job losses in the Great Depression were of an entirely different magnitude. In 1930, the economy shed 4.8% of the labor force. In 1931, 6.5%. And then in 1932, another 7.1%. Jobs were being lost at double or triple the rate of 2008-09 or 1981-82.

This was reflected in unemployment rates. The latest survey pegs U.S. unemployment at 7.6%. That’s more than three percentage points below the 1982 peak (10.8%) and not even a third of the peak in 1932 (25.2%). You simply can’t equate 7.6% unemployment with the Great Depression.

Other economic statistics also dispel any analogy between today’s economic woes and the Great Depression. Real gross domestic product (GDP) rose in 2008, despite a bad fourth quarter. The Congressional Budget Office projects a GDP decline of 2% in 2009. That’s comparable to 1982, when GDP contracted by 1.9%. It is nothing like 1930, when GDP fell by 9%, or 1931, when GDP contracted by another 8%, or 1932, when it fell yet another 13%.

I wanted to reprint this whole article, but that’s against the rules.  Go to the link above to finish reading this short, sweet, and to the point article about why, at least, the numbers are not lying.

Didn’t I just read somewhere that consumer spending went up last month?

TSUNAMI MEDIA ALERT: TROJAN HORSE IS NOW AT THE GATE….SEE WHAT’S REALLY INSIDE!

TSUNAMI MEDIA ALERT: TROJAN HORSE IS NOW AT THE GATE….SEE WHAT’S REALLY INSIDE!

From December into January, TSUNAMI MEDIA warned that Obama’s mobilization of his propaganda corps – both in Washington and online -was clearly preparing to dominate Capitol Hill with a frenzy and fury unseen before. Investigation indicated an alarming stack of suspicious legislation, all introduced simultaneously on January 6th. Each one was presented with only vague title and a few disconcerting paragraphs of description. (S1 to S10) So far, the public is only even aware of the 1st: HR1. Behind the scenes,it is now becoming shockingly clear what this total package of bills truly intends.

Starting with a revealing review of the actual contents of HR1, a bigger picture emerges which many might consider pulp science fiction. Unfortunately, it’s a fiction within which we’ll all soon be living unless America wakes up before it’s too late. Until now, penetrating the public mindset with the true facts behind the insane conduct of our current Congress has been an uphill struggle. The Mainstream Media’s maneuvers to manipulate viewers have shifted to high gear – with careful avoidance of the real facts or any actual contents HR1. And that’s far from all, MSM has been excluding from the airwaves. Under a Hitlerian blanket of intentional diversion scrambled with gross exaggeration and large scale lies,  the Obama machine grinds forward as has been intended and, apparently, planned for a long time. Take a look here at what’s really been happening while few, if any, are looking.
Bear in mind, horrendous as it is, this first Act is only the beginning.  Here’s a sobering, somber review of the facts:

HR1 aka “Stimulus Plan.” Prior aliases to cover its hidden agenda include the “Bail Out” (first MSM blitz); then “Obama’s Recovery Plan” (second media blitz.) Worse yet, bear in mind – as staggering as its expenditures are – HR1 is only the first of a series of “bills” prepared for launch in the corrupt one-party system now tyrannizing our nation. The ever-shifting taglines given this burdensome legislation, conceal its capacity to break – not improve – the US Economy and what it means by “Recovery” is the highway robbery of middle class America’s freedom and prosperity. As recently as January 14, this package of lies offered just a 1 page description. Suddenly, 647 pages appeared and received consent of the House of Representatives, whose members had obviously not only not read the contents but could not even have written them themselves. So who handed over this bulky fiction to Congress, with enough bribes and threats to ensure compliance? Obviously Speaker Pelosi, America’s very own Medusa. What every American should really be asking is: WHO REALLY WROTE HR1 AND WHEN?

WHAT HR1 REALLY CONTAINS is much more appalling than its “tiny bits of pork” (as a Democratic legislator recently stated) Its tiny BILLIONS of pork serve a two-pronged purpose: buy off Congressional votes while capturing the public’s eye, via the Media, in the cloud cover of complaints about who is to blame for which piece of waste HR1 contains. Fixating on the pork in this bill is like trying to pull a sliver out of your finger when you’re just about to step into a land mine. It may be a nuisance but it won’t do much good to save your finger when your whole body implodes!

The HIDDEN AGENDA of HR1, so covertly buried beneath its pork, is that it concretizes Obama’s totalitarian agenda via 1) “income redistribution”; 2) full penetration of “vulnerable populations” via expanded electronic media; and 3) total eradication of the privacy of US citizens and residents. In view of all this, it’s critical we collectively shift our attention off bits of pork and put a flood light of scrutiny and exposure on what HR1 is really about. By now, even a blind idiot can tell it will damage rather than improve our economy! That’s no surprise really because this BOOK, chockfull of transfiguring measures (at last count mushroomed to about 1,500 pages) was never set out for that purpose at all. Read excerpts of its January 6th introduction and ask yourself:-Did you ever at any time hear any major reporters or leaders of Congress announce – or even mention – these intentions?!
S1:”….measures that modernize the nation’s infrastructure, enhance America’s energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need, and for other purposes.

Thus, HR1, as the biggest Swindle in the History of Civilization, is doing exactly what it really set out to do:
  • Pours BILLIONS into “neighborhood stabilization programs” Keep up the payscale and expand the outreach of “community organizations” like A.C.O.R.N. which is a necessity for Obama to continue building and feeding his political machine. How can it even be legal to FEDERALLY FUND A GROUP WHICH IS UNDER CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS FOR FRAUD in at least 12 US States? These bulky portions of the package maintain political control and good favor of lower income, uneducated populations
  • Expand Cable Outreach and hook everyone up via Analog to Digital Conversion: If you want to fool everyone and track them at the same time, you need 100% market penetration. BILLIONS in the latter portion of the bill are designated for use of LCCR (Leadership Conference on Civil Rights) to “educate vulnerable (including rural) populations” on this conversion. It appears Obama is keeping his promise to give priority perks to the “community organizers” who ensured his fraudulent election. Without them his 53% winner would have been a landslide loss. If you live “out in the country” (where Obama did have a landslide loss) guess who’s going to get paid to come to your door about this “conversion?”
  • Collect all personal medical information of every US citizen and resident on record everywhere for a new National Data Base accessible to the Federal government, via the Center for Disease Prevention and Control for purposes to include “bio-surveillance.” As illegal as it would appear providing huge financing for indicted criminals in A.C.O.R.N. how can a Law be passed that preempts our Constitutional right to privacy – not only without our consent but without our foreknowledge?!!

The HIDDEN AGENDA BEYOND HR1

In a tromp d’oleil (trick of the eye) beyond any prior political take-over of a nation, here’s a review of what’s been going on in Washington at the same time – again unreported by any Mainstream Media, despite their public responsibility to information for free use of the airwaves:
1. While all were busy watching the House of Representatives initial action on HR1, the Senate sailed through SCHIP program. Its massive Federal funding has remained unreported in the Media tallies of T.A.R.P. 1 & 2 plus HR1’s added near TRILLION dollars. The scope of this mandate for government payments for children’s Health Care covers the births and medical care of illegal aliens, claiming these costs will be covered by adding yet another $1 to every pack of cigarettes sold. Estimates, however, indicate the US is short twenty-two million smokers to fund this new law. Which might be a problem since HR1 provides MILLIONS of dollars for Smoking Prevention! Even less attention has been given to the fact that SCHIP legislates this mandate for children’s Health Care be provided to the ripe age of 30 years old!!

2.  Then when all eyes turned toward the Senate’s action on HR1 the House of Representatives voted in an unfathomable new law called “Global Poverty Act” (S2433). This law, now on its way to the Senate for finalization, quadruples such US funding abroad (beyond even our normal foreign aid.) Of greater concern than where on earth all this money is to come, it gets much worse, including:
1) placing US military troops under the jurisdiction of the United Nations and
2) placing a GLOBAL TAX on all US citizens!!!


3.  In a subterfuge that outdoes Machiavelli, when Richardson’s role as Commerce Secretary was undone, Axelrod put GOP Gregg in place. Lest any considered that a magnanimous gesture, turns out the White House has decided that Senator Gregg’s record on immigration makes him an unreliable choice to supervise the critical forthcoming US Census. Solution: Just move the Census to supervision by the White House. This fits like a crucial puzzle piece with HR1 funding of Obama’s community organizers while giving his Chief of Staff direct control of the forthcoming redistricting of Congress. Remember – your vote only counts in relation to the total voting populace in your district. Such redistricting combined with social engineering can give extraordinary weight to populations who would otherwise be in the minority.

You’ve got Obama’s First Month Report now. Summing it up: Nearly a Trillion for T.A.R.P.; another Trillion for HR1;
Billions more for SCHIP; Billions again (for years to come!) for “Global Poverty” Relief. . . . but what happened to resolving collapsing property & retirement income? How about the foreclosure crisis? Providing jobs and tax reductions for the middle class?
If you still haven’t registered what is self-evident of Washington’s new “Change” Administration, Michelle Obama, herself, tried to tell US way back in the primaries that “Change will be hard” with only “so many pieces of pie to go around” and we need to expect, after all, to “give up” some of our pie. Obama and company hold the American middle class in complete contempt and consider it their Mission to eradicate the American economy and social structure as we have known it.

SORRY TO SAY THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. THERE’S MORE TO COME . . . BACK TO THE FUTURE:

HR1 is only the first of 10 related pieces of legislation which, together, rewrite the nature of our Nation.

The lipstick on the pig of HR1 is already compounded by the squandering funds of T.A.R.P; Global Taxation and SCHIP- WITHOUT ANY MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORTING ON THE TOTAL TALLIES. Also note the equally unreported introduction of a bill for the REPARATIONS OF SLAVERY (yet to reach the floor of Congress but already prepared!)
After that, take a look at S 2 – 9 yet to comeand imagine what the rest of these sketchy legislative descriptions will become:

Also, by no coincidence, on January 6, another overlooked bill was introduced to eliminate term limits on the Presidency,
by deleting one of our most critical Constitutional amendments which protects us from attempts at dictatorship by our leadership.
Buried in an earlier record of this previously failed legislation is record of a powerful new sponsor for this law: none other than Barney Frank. Ask yourself: Why is the Head of the Banking Committee sponsoring legislation to allow a permanent “President?!”

Compounding the apparent lunacy that has overtaken the nation’s Capitol, as reported above, a strange change of tone is already prepared for in S10 (after the endless seemingly irrational spending spree outlined above): S10 stated purpose is: to restore fiscal discipline and begin to address the long-term fiscal challenges facing the United States, and for other purposes.”

At the same time, Ohio recently came close to bringing US just 2 states short of organizing a Constitutional Convention for the purported purpose of an Amendment to require a balanced Federal budget. If that all sounds like a good idea, consider this fact: Once a Constitutional Convention is convened it operates under no outside rules; is not required to fulfill its original agenda: and supersedes all existing authority including that of Congress. In fact, such a Convention can do away with the Constitution altogether.

Ask yourself, before it’s too late: Why would our Congress push through legislation intended for purposes other than its public presentation? Why would they further act to break our already threatened economy and dollar by expending unheard of sums of (nonexistent) money on what are, by and large, social engineering projects when the very foundation of free enterprise is threatened? Why would they do so in an unprecedented rush, with flim-flam titles, and the real contents hidden from the public completely? Any economist knows all this can only result in chaos caused by rapid hyper-inflation.Why would the head of the Banking Committee be preparing to remove term limits from the Presidency? Why would nine books of law be hurriedly written and passed to spend all this fiat cash – only to lead to a pre-planned SELF CONTRADICTORY law demanding “fiscal responsibility?” And why would a Convention that can dissolve the Constitution be organizing, simultaneously, under the same false header of “fiscal responsibility?”
