WHAT'S ERODING THE MIDDLE CLASS?

There are five primary drivers of this erosion in my view:

1. The shifting of pension and healthcare costs/risks from the state and employers to employees

2. The decline of scarcity value to labor in general and specifically in college degrees that were once the guaranteed ticket to middle class security

3. The inexorable rise in big-ticket costs: higher education, healthcare and housing. Even as wages stagnate, these costs continue rising. claiming an ever-larger share of household incomes, leaving less to save/invest.

4. The transition from an economy with stable returns to a financialized boom-and-bust economy that wipes out middle class wealth in the busts but doe not rebuild it in the booms.

5. The regulatory and administrative barriers to self-employment in a globalized economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that no matter which party "mascot" gets elected (as all candidates are owned by the criminal banking class and the major corporations), the offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs continues apace, with no real remedy in sight.

Puerto Rico isalready in the midst of an economic collapse

Although there are many ways this crisis could escalate further, it is clear that Puerto Rico is
already in the midst of an economic collapse. As part of the Administration's longstanding
engagement with the Commonwealth, I will meet with community and business leaders in Puerto
Rico on the immense challenges the Commonwealth faces, and at Treasury we will continue to
bring our full capabilities to bear in the provision and delivery of assistance to Puerto Rico. But
our existing tools are not sufficient for a comprehensive solution.

Puerto Rico is already in default. It is shifting funds from one creditor to pay another and has
stopped payment altogether on several of its debts. As predicted, creditors are filing lawsuits.
The Government Development Bank, which provides critical banking and fiscal services to the
central government, only avoided depleting its liquidity by halting lending activity and sweeping

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, what precisely does Secretary Lew wish Congress to do to save Puerto Rico's economy, when the horrific economic conditions there having been created by its own officials' lack of intelligent money management and corruption?!?

Lew talks about debt restructuring, but what does that actually mean?!? And will Puerto Rico actually be able to do that, even with intense oversight?!?

IF Puerto Rican leadership were smart, they would invoke the Iceland model, where the odious debt was declared non-payable, and the bankers and politicians who put the country in this mess should be put in jail.

But that is something Lew just doesn't want to see happen, or remind Americans just how well that worked in Iceland.

The FBI and Memphis Police Admit Their Involvement in the Assassination of MLK

Nearly 50 years since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the FBI and Memphis Police Department have sparingly released information implicating themselves or members of their agencies in facilitating and directly causing the untimely death of Dr. King. Although the Justice Department officially claims James Earl Ray assassinated MLK, a civil suit later determined that a Memphis cop was involved in a conspiracy to murder the civil rights leader...

In the midst of all the useless, distracting noise generated by the Zionist mainstream media – the sole purpose of which is to hypnotize the masses in such a way that works to Israel’s benefit – is the fact that the whole of Syria is under siege and all the Syrian people are starving in some manner. And not just starving for a few days, weeks, or months, but rather for years, since the beginning of the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ that brought with it Western-created revolutions that have midwifed the diabolical children of destruction, poverty, destitution, violence, terrorism, and civil war...

MH-17 disaster: The West lies again to put Russia on trial

Deputy Head of the Federal Air Transport Agency, Oleg Storchevoy, sent an official letter to the Security Council of the Netherlands. In the letter, he expressed disagreement with the results of investigation into the crash of Boeing-777 in Ukraine on 17 July 2014.

According to the official, even if one assumes that it was a Buk missile that shot down the Boeing, the characteristics of the fragments provided in the report do not correspond to the characteristics of submunitions of 9N314M warhead. Oleg Storchevoy referred to the results of full-scale experiments and research works conducted by Russian experts.

According to them, the fragments that appear as evidence in the report of the Dutch side could not belong to the warhead of a Buk missile. This was confirmed by chemical analysis of the composition of the materials of warhead 9N314M submunitions.

Turkey: Bombing Its Way to a Better Narrative

By Tony Cartalucci

A recent bombing in the Turkish city of Istanbul has left at least 10 dead and 15 injured. The government in Ankara was quick to blame the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh), claiming the bomber was “Syrian” and had crossed over from Syria into Turkey before carrying out the terrorist attack...

However, an overabundance of evidence during the past several years indicates that ISIS is in fact both an intentional creation and continuous perpetuation of foreign state-sponsors of terrorism, including Turkey itself...

Two Brothers Opposing Oregon Militia Have Long Family History Seeped in Far-Left Politics, Democratic Operatives

The two brothers spearheading a campaign against the Oregon militia and occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge are far from a mere grassroots organization. Both attorneys, Zachary and Jake Klonoski are two extreme left-wing statists who, not surprisingly, have a long history of being tied up with and working for the government. In addition, both of their parents have a long history of being political operatives for the Democratic party. Their father was a professor and Chairman of the Democratic Party for decades and their mother is a U.S. District Judge appointed by Bill Clinton.

The resolution is expected to be published Monday, at the conclusion of the council’s meeting in Brussels.

Netanyahu spoke to officials in Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Hungary and the Czech Republic, asking them to oppose the current version of the draft resolution, saying the text was unbalanced and biased against Israel.

Snyder to appeal Obama’s denial of Flint disaster zone

Lansing — Gov. Rick Snyder intends to appeal the Obama administration’s denial of a major disaster declaration in Flint that blocked the governor’s request for $96 million in federal aid for bottled water, faucet filters and replacing lead-leaching pipes.

The move comes as more national attention turns to Flint. On Sunday, civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson added his voice to the growing chorus of criticism of Flint’s water crisis, calling the city a ‘crime scene.’

“We should have ... tape around the city because Flint is a crime scene,” Jackson said to a packed house at Heavenly Host Baptist Church in Flint. “The people of Flint have been betrayed.”

The unbreakable bond is money. The link between the Jesuits and the Jews is murky and it's almost impossible to sort fact from fiction. What is known is that until the Reformation the Jesuits had all the power. As usury was forbidden for Christians, the Jesuits lent directly to the aristocracy for influence and they financed the Jews to lend money to the lower classes for profit.

In War Games, Navy SEALs Normalize Treating U.S. Citizens as Enemy

United States Navy SEALs planned war games in the state of Washington for mid-January, where they would encroach upon residential areas, state parks, national parks, etc, without the consent of the public. The war games treat citizens as pawns because SEALs were trained to react to citizens as potential terrorists.

One of the most alarming aspects of the war games, which were reported on by Truthout journalist Dahr Jamail, is how it normalizes the idea that U.S. citizens can be enemies. The war games suggest a future where many more military exercises run roughshod over public spaces and soldiers simulate how citizens could pose a danger to them.

The “Square” Photo of Jahar – Crucial Evidence was “Cropped” in Boston

These images are NOT frames that occurred within the surveillance video (as is the rest of exhibit 22). Rather, it appears they are still pictures that were – I’m trying not to say “planted” – let’s see what other word I could use besides planted – OK, I think they were inserted.

Let us look at the first picture (the “finger-cap” picture) below. What is strange is that Dzhokhar (“Jahar”) Tsarnaev seems to be the focus here — whereas the background is in soft focus and the runners are obscured.

The resolution of this picture is good — much better than CCTV footage. The camera is about ten feet away from Jahar – and taken about eye height in a PORTRAIT, not landscape, frame.
But take note: We cannot see Jahar’s backpack. Maybe there were other photographs taken – but this one was CHOSEN because a lifted hand from another spectator conveniently HIDES Jahar’s silver-white backpack.

OBAMA DECLARES EMERGENCY IN MICHIGAN OVER LEAD-CONTAMINATED WATER

U.S. President Barack Obama signed an emergency declaration Saturday that clears the way for federal aid for Flint, Michigan, which is undergoing a drinking water crisis due to lead-contaminated water.

The tap water in Flint, population 99,000, became contaminated after the city switched from the Detroit water system to the Flint River while a pipeline to Lake Huron is under construction. The decision to use the river was made while a Snyder-appointed emergency manager was running the city government due to its financial problems. The corrosive water from the Flint River lacked adequate treatment and caused lead to leach from old pipes in homes and schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a positive move, but comes as way too little and way too late for kids and families whose lives have been, for all intents and purposes, ruined by lead poisoning.

Every person who signed off on the decision to use Flint River water should be fired from their jobs, and prosecuted to the full extent of the law for reckless public endangerment, and do jail time.

As reported at thinkprogress.org in June of 2015:

Safety tests conducted in 2014 and early 2015 showed high levels of TTHM or THM in the drinking water, violating the Safe Drinking Water Act. TTHM, or total trihalomethane, is a byproduct of chlorine disinfection. According to the EPA, prolonged exposure to or consumption of such chemicals can pose significant health risks. The Flint River has a history of poor water quality due to industrial pollution and agricultural runoff, according to an assessment by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. But efforts to remove pollutants and clean up the river have been successful in the past 40 years. Now, some are wondering if the problem lies in the city’s treatment of the water, which differs from its treatment of its previous water source, Lake Huron. “I’m guessing it’s a combination of a big problem that started early, and then the treatment system,” said Lynn Thorp of Clean Water Action. Thorp cited pollution, contamination, coloration, and taste as problems contributing to Flint’s drinking water problem. Many learned about the drinking water health violation through a federal notice sent to Flint residents in January. “We were not told for 10 months that our water was failing all the THM violation tests,” said resident Melissa Mays at the hearing. Mays organized a march in February to protest the city’s drinking water after noticing rashes and hair falling out. Since the news of water contamination broke in January, some residents are speaking out against the city’s new water system. February protesters said the water was caustic and had forced them to buy bottled water to drink. At the Wednesday hearing, residents shared stories of rashes and other medical problems after drinking the water from the river. One resident at the hearing said she couldn’t use water for laundry and had to take her clothes to a laundromat. Another said she wore gloves while cleaning dishes to protect her hands from the water, otherwise her hands would itch and burn. In addition to the health risks, water affordability remains a concern of the Flint community. Resident Cindy Marshall told Michigan Live she spends close to $300 in water bills and bottled water per month. “I wish Flint officials would give us our Detroit water back,” she said. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department did offer to reconnect Flint to its water system in January 2015 after news of the contamination spread, but the city chose to keep drawing from the river. According to the Detroit Free Press, a city analysis concluded that rejoining the Detroit system would increase Flint’s costs by $12 million per year. Residents demanded that officials find a solution to the city’s water problem, but so far, lawmakers have not put forth any specific plan or legislation to do so. Flint resident Nayyirah Shariff said at the hearing the drinking water problem had become a “house of horrors” and needed to be fixed. Flint water is slowly becoming safer, but is still in violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act because one testing site out of eight still has an unacceptably high level of TTHM, according to Michigan Live.

The bottom line here is, officials knew about the problems with this water, but because Flint is an area of extreme poverty, they didn't give a damn.

FLASHBACK - MARTIN LUTHER KING - THE FATAL SHOT CAME FROM A DIFFERENT DIRECTION

According to the government, James Earl Ray shot Dr. Martin Luther King from that window. There is, needless to say, no physical evidence to prove this charge. James Earl Ray spent his life in prison based solely on a coerced confession which he immediately retracted. None of the ballistics tests, which were performed on the rifle James Earl Ray allegedly used, were able to link that rifle to the actual bullet that killed Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King's family does not think James Earl Ray was the killer, and recently won a civil court case proving there was a conspiracy.

Now, thanks to writer Ted Wilburn, in a story which follows, new evidence has surfaced to prove that the government and the media have been lying to the public about the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Would YOU drink this? People of Flint share horrifying pictures of the water they were told was safe as they turn on the governor

Drinking supplies were found to contain lead that had leached from old plumbing after the city switched sources to save money
There were 87 confirmed Legionnaires' cases, including 10 deaths, from June 2014 to November 2015, compared to only 21 cases in 2012 and 2013
Michigan health officials said they can't conclude that the increase was related to Flint's water
Flint pulled water from its river for 18 months until last fall but didn't use treatments that could have reduced corrosion and removed contaminants
Local officials declared a public health emergency in October in response to elevated levels of lead in children
Lead can cause behavior problems and learning disabilities in children as well as kidney ailments in adults

The stomach-churning pictures of discolored drinking water that has come out of the taps of the residents of Flint, Michigan has been flooding social media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every city, county, and state official who signed off on making the change to this horrific water source should be tried by a jury of their peers for reckless public endangerment, sentenced, and serve hard jail time for what they have done.

Lead poisoning is irreversible, and for parents who will never see their kids achieve their full potential, the emotional pain must be beyond comprehension.

It is very obvious to me that the people of Flint were completely irrelevant to the people who made this decision. And why?!?

Flint is still caught in the grip of grinding poverty, ever since GM left, back in the 80s. It also has an appalling crime rate, which makes it very dangerous.

When there is a rationale that people don't matter, because they live in a poor, high crime neighborhood, some very, vilely evil decisions can be made by city and county officials, to save a few bucks.

Heading for Catastrophe? What May Force Riyadh to Unleash War Against Iran

Will Saudi Arabia seek war with Iran? Growing economic and political pressure may prompt the impulsive royal family to unleash a war against its longstanding Shiite rival, American author Daniel Lazare believes.

Saudi-Iranian tensions continue to escalate; although Riyadh keeps asserting the international community that it has no intention to push Saudi Arabia to the brink of war, there are certain preconditions for a full-scale conflict, according to author Daniel Lazare.

"The ruling family is under unprecedented strain. Its economy is shrinking; it's bogged down in a seemingly endless war in Yemen; and its human-rights policies are an international scandal. If countries could have nervous breakdowns, Saudi Arabia would be well on its way. And when breakdowns occur, nations do crazy things," Lazare writes in his piece for Consortiumnews.com.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the Iranian leadership has handled itself with calm and class, leading to a successful negotiation of the P5+1 Agreement, and sanctions against the country will end in a matter of days.

My nightmare scenario is that, in its geopolitical and financial distress, Saudi Arabia will create a false flag action to be blamed against Iran, invoking US (and covert Israeli) support for it against Iran, with Russian military supporting Iran, and a full-scale, world war ensues.

I would like to hope that some adults in the room of global politics (Calling President Vladimir Putin, white courtesy telephone please!)will prevent this from happening.

And the hell of it is, the US government is frantically seeking to engage in a war, ANY WAR, to misdirect the coming boiling public outrage about the deteriorating economic situation on to a false villain.

Brutal Crackdown on Kurds Shows Erdogan’s Desire for ‘Dictatorship’

The ongoing crackdown on Kurds in southeastern Turkey shows that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is working to set up a dictatorship in the country, Hatip Dicle, the co-chair of Pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Congress (DTK), told Sputnik in an interview.

"They [the Erdogan government] call it a "presidential form of government," but in fact it's pure dictatorship. The Turkish government wants to formally introduce the dictatorial form of government in the country," Dicle said.

The Kurdish issue is getting worse every day. People in the country are worried and want to know what steps Erdogan's government would take next after an attack, allegedly carried out by Kurds, last night in the province of Diyarbakir.

Official PKK representatives said they would like to sit at the negotiation table with the government. The PKK also intends to keep pushing for the idea of democratic autonomy for Kurds living in Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would not put it past Erdogan to declare a complete genocide against the Kurds, rather than come to the negotiating table, and create something that actually works, in terms of at least some limited autonomy for its Kurdish population.

And if Edrogan chooses genocide, it will create an absolute civil war in Turkey.

‘Enabler’ Hillary Clinton haunted by efforts to ‘destroy’ husband’s accusers

Campaign narratives written by reporters detailed how she honchoed the campaign team that handled “bimbo eruptions,” digging up personal papers and official records that could be used to undercut the stories told by a series of women. One top aide later recounted Mrs. Clinton’s intent to “destroy” the story of one accuser, while former adviser Dick Morris said Mrs. Clinton engaged in “blackmail” to try to force women to recant their stories.

The disconnect between Mrs. Clinton’s historic campaign and her own past is quickly becoming an issue in the presidential election, driven in part by Republican opponent Donald Trump’s vow to make her husband, the former president, an issue for her.

And the women who lodged some of the worst complaints against Mr. Clinton are likewise intent on making sure Mrs. Clinton answers for her actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good!

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsNorth Korea Would End Nuclear Testing for Peace Treaty, End to US Military Drills

North Korea’s official news agency today issued a statement reiterating the nation’s willingness to suspend all nuclear testing in return for a peace treaty to end the Korean War, and the cessation of US military exercises aimed at them.

Tensions have been rising since North Korea tested another atomic weapon earlier this month, the fourth such test the nation has performed. They claimed it was a hydrogen bomb, though experts agree it was almost certainly not.

The State Department immediately spurned the latest proposal, saying the military exercises would continue because the US has “commitments” to South Korea to keep having them. The annual military exercises have fueled annual tensions with North Korea, tending to end in mid-Spring.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been saying this for years.

The US government, however, must feel it is in its interests to avoid a true peace process,and continue its threatening stance toward North Korea.

Such a stance is great for the potential of war, and all the money the military industrial complex makes from war; it is not, however, great for the present and future Americans who wind up paying the price, in blood and money, to fight that war.

Why is logic the most impossible thing to embrace for the US government?!?! Sometimes, that inability just boggles the minds of thinking people.

How European Media Defends Human Rights - By Concealing Mass Rape

For five days following the assaults the German media failed to report them.

When under public pressure they eventually did, it turned out that a string of similar assaults had also happened simultaneously in various other German cities.

Over the following week it turned out that mass assaults of a similar nature had also happened in cities in Scandinavia.

Recently it has become known that similar assaults took place on a mass scale earlier last summer in Sweden, and went unreported.

Mary Caitrin Mahoney and the Starbucks Massacre

One of the reasons I stopped writing about it at that point was that there really wasn’t anything more to say. Another was that the day after I put up “Starbucks Surveillance” I received a terse, chilling, anonymous email threat to me and my family, which I reported to the police and to the principal writers on the story, Bill Miller at The Washington Post and Jim Keary at The Washington Times. That was the end of that, until this past Saturday night when I discovered “The Mysterious Murder of Mary Mahoney“ on the web site of Little Dixie Dynamite. Noting that a commenter had linked to my “Starbucks Fallback Fall Guy,” in the comments I attempted to go public for the first time with the threat that I received, including the text. As I write this, I am told by the site that my comment is still “awaiting moderation.” One might think that they are waiting for hell to freeze over. Stay tuned.

FEDERAL AGENTS TAKE DISABLED VETERAN’S CHILD BECAUSE HE TREATED HIS PTSD WITH MARIJUANA

Disabled Navy veteran Raymond Schwab moved to Colorado last year to free himself from addictions that grew out of the pharmaceuticals prescribed by the VA to treat his service-related physical and psychological injuries.

As Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access points out, medical cannabis is an effective treatment for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), where other drugs fail. Veterans are successfully treating themselves despite the federal government’s prohibition.

Because Schwab is legally using medicinal cannabis in Colorado, officials in prohibitionist Kansas have abducted five of his children, ranging from 5 to 16 years of age.

The ransom demanded by the Kansas “child protection” bureaucracy is a promise that Schwab will refrain from using cannabis, and four months of “clean” urinalysis test results.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane, on the part of the Federal government, but demonstrates, once again, that pharmaceutical company profits cannot be allowed to be threatened by effective, natural treatment for PTSD.

Mrs. Hammond Writes “The Oregonian” About U.S. Superior Court Judge Who Arrived To Restore Constitutional Order

“Law enforcement” at every level is using corrupt and unconstitutional tactics to intimidate and cajole the local citizens into going along with them, and it’s very clear that “law enforcement” does not want their behavior on display for the American people. Their solution has been to impose almost a complete media blackout, so that when the standoff is over, regardless of the outcome, it is “law enforcement” who will feed the media whatever narrative they see fit. They already know from previous tragedies, that the media will go along with just about anything they are told without asking questions, no matter how nonsensical the explanation is, or how much it flies in the face of common sense.

Wesley Clark: "Our friends and allies funded ISIS to destroy Hezbollah" [VIDEO]

“ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies. People will tell you in the region that if you want somebody who will fight to the death against Hezbollah, you don’t put out a recruiting poster saying ‘sign up for us we’re gonna make a better world.’ You go after zealots and you go after these religious fundamentalists. That’s who fights Hezbollah. It’s like a Frankenstein.”

TDAP vaccine (not MMR vaccine as previously reported) given to pregnant women in Brazil likely suspect for newborns' with shrunken brains

THERE IS AN ERROR IN THE VACCINE/SHRUNKEN BABY BRAIN REPORT THAT MUST BE FIXED.

A woman who is currently pregnant showed me her medical schedule. The vaccine is not MMR. It is Diptheria, Tetanus and Influenza in Mexico, and in Brazil it is Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis (Tdap).

It will be VERY important for people who have posted MMR (this got reposted a lot) to change this to Tdap. I have confirmed that Brazil just got a new Tdap shot, which is the likely culprit. This report will remain unchanged, except for MMR to be replaced with TDAP. I knew it was a three way vaccine and errored with MMR, that is not what it is. THIS REPORT WILL NOW BE CORRECTED TO REFLECT THIS.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

'Transformers' director Michael Bay tackles Benghazi — and the result is sound and fury signifying nothing

Have no fear Hillary Clinton. Michael Bay is not guilty of using his new blast of mind-numbing noise, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, as a battle cry against your shot at the Democratic presidential nomination. He's leaving that to Bernie Sanders. Clinton's name is never mentioned in this telling of the siege on a diplomatic outpost that occurred under her watch as Secretary of State. Still, enough blame is implied to make 13 Hours Donald Trump's early pick for movie of the year.
***
... the movie effectively captures the frenzy of the ambush. That's pretty much it for the good news.

Now This Is Just Getting Silly

We have gone full circle from the ancient Roman bloody entertainments to fictional random acts of violence that will quickly be ascribed to which ever alphabet terrorist group de jour. I cannot believe that people actually believe all this horseshit performed for the duller of mentalities out here. Which in itself, is an oxymoron.
