The following is excerpted from American Exceptionalism by Mark Elsis

“None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds
by masters who rule them with lies.

They feed them on falsehoods till wrong looks like right in their eyes.”

   Johann Wolfgang von Goethe  

“We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals and our banks destroy the economy.”

   Chris Hedges

Fifty Ways The American Dream Has Become A Nightmare

1) Number one in derivatives and other banking and financial frauds.

We can thank President William Jefferson Clinton (Billy “Slick Willie” Blythe) and his corrupt psychopathic Jewish financial handlers, Alan Greenspan, Robert Rubin and Larry Summers (Samuelson) for these two treasonous laws. The first law was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, enacted November 12, 1999. This law voided the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. The Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 made sure that most over-the-counter derivatives transactions would not be regulated as futures under the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936 or as securities under the federal securities laws. Today most estimates of the derivatives market have it between one and two quadrillion dollars (1,000 and 2,000 trillion United States Dollars.)

“Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction.”

                            Warren Buffett

2) Number one in manipulation of financial numbers.

We have actually been in negative GDP the last 24 quarters. What I am stating is that we have been in a depression since the fall of 2008.

John Williams and his website does a masterful job in not only showing the manipulation of financial numbers, but also in reveling what the true numbers really should be.

3) Number one in expenditures on health care (and going up).

The United States spends 16.9% of its GDP on health care. This is far more than any other developed country. The Netherlands is a distant second, spending 11.8% of their GDP on health care. Americans are spending 143% to 284% more of their GDP than any other developed country. Are we getting our money’s worth? No, not at all. According to The Commonwealth Fund, one of the world’s most respected independent health care think tanks, “the United States is last or near last on dimensions of access, efficiency, and equity and last on overall quality of our system.” The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic (of or relating to illness caused by medical examination or treatment) deaths is 783,936 (now eleven years later, I believe this number of deaths by medicide is well over 1,000,000). It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.

4) Number one in decreasing longevity (probably).

There are many other factors that are making this occur. We are increasingly eating foods that are less nutritional, full of pesticides and lately genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The water we drink is increasing poisoned with fluoride, chlorine and other chemicals. The outdoor air we breath is laced with geoengineering as well as particulates. The indoor air we breath is even worse, much worse, and most of us spend upwards of 90% of out time indoors.

5) Number one in prescription drugs and antidepressants.

Antidepressant use in the United States is up 400% in the past decade, they were also the third most common prescription drug taken by Americans of all ages and the most frequently used by persons aged 18 to 44 years. Around 12% of Americans use antidepressants, that makes one in eight people walking zombies. It is gotten so bad that we now consume 84% of the entire worldwide supply of oxycodone and almost 99% of hydrocodone opioids according to statistics from the International Narcotics Control Board. We are in an unbelievable epidemic of painkiller abuse. Since 1999, the United States has seen deaths from opiate painkillers jump by 415 percent in women and 265 percent in men. Most victims are middle-aged men and women legitimately prescribed the drugs for chronic pain. In the study Death by Medicine from 2003, it states that the annual deaths from prescription drug use are approximately 106,000 per year. Drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged 50 to 69.

6) Number one in mass shootings.

Americans have witnessed at least 110 mass shootings since January 2009. I believe the number one reason for this is the vast amounts of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) antidepressants young males are being overly prescribed. Adverse reactions are most likely to occur when starting or discontinuing these drugs, increasing or lowering the dose or when switching from one SSRI to another. Adverse reactions are often diagnosed as bipolar disorder when the symptoms may be entirely iatrogenic (treatment induced). Withdrawal, especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these medications can cause severe neuropsychiatric and physical symptoms.

7) Number one in no paid maternal leave among developed countries.

There are only four countries on Earth that don’t give paid maternal leave, they are; The United States, Swaziland, Lesotho and Papua New Guinea. Today, 70% of American children live in households where both the Father and Mother are employed. Today, nearly one quarter of United States children live in poverty.

8) Number one in spending for the military and security industrial complex.

The United States military and security industrial complex spends over 60,000 USD per second.

“Corral the 50 wealthiest Jews, and there will be no wars.”

                                   Henry Ford

There has been almost no coup or government overthrow since World War II ended that was not led by the United States. Lately, anyone the least bit observant has noticed that we have been funding both sides of conflicts to create chaos.

The United States government, under the NSA, and with assistance from every major telecommunications carrier has engaged in a massive illegal surveillance of domestic communications and communications records on Americans since at least 2001.

Because of the following five brave NSA whistleblowers: William Binney; Thomas Drake; J. Kirk Wiebe; Edward Loomis and Edward Snowden we have understood the full extent of the treasonous and extraconstitutional behavior our government is doing.

9) Number one in military and small arms exports.

The Unites States supplies nearly half of all the armaments sold on Earth every year. Small arms cause about 90% of the civilian casualties.

10) Number one in nuclear weapons.

The United States now has the proud and loving distinction of having a policy of first strike use. We are threatening the whole world with the initial massive killings from the bombs themselves and then the extinction causing nuclear winter which will ensue.

“What’s the good of nuclear weapons if you can’t use them?”

                                 Bill Kristol

11) Number one in having our military in other countries.

It looks very much like we are using Ukraine as a proxy to go after Russia, as was first put forth in what is known as the Wolfowitz Doctrine of February 18, 1992. This was authored by the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz and his deputy Scooter Libby (both Jewish). The doctrine states: “Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”

“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

                                     Henry Kissinger

12) Number one in using private military companies.

The United States is number one in using private military companies. Within the last 15 years these private companies, like Blackwater (aka Xe, Academi), Aegis and G4S have silently consumed military operations around the world. By 2007 there were more contractors than United States military (in Iraq).

13) Number one in killing people using drones.

The United States uses drone strikes to murder people in many countries as if we are the judge, jury and executioner for the world. The countries we know that they are killing in for sure of are: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. Obama told his aides in reference to his orders of drone strike murders, “I’m really good at killing people”. We use the barbaric practice called double tap learned from Israel. The double tap tactic involves bombing a target multiple times. After the first strike we wait a few minutes, enough time for the emergency first responders to arrive and help the still living. Then we strike a second time, murdering the brave innocent souls there to help. We have used drones strikes and double tap at wedding parties and funerals.

14) Number one in extra judicial killings, kidnapping and torture.

The United States holds the world record of illegal killings of unarmed civilians and extrajudicial detention and torturing of prisoners who are detained without trial. We now act with impunity. We are above international laws.

15) Number one in helping Israel.

Nihilistic Israel is in violation of 79 United Nations Security Council resolutions, far more than any other country. The United States government has protected Israel by vetoing these United Nations security resolutions 39 times. On most of these occasions we were the only country to do so.

Since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated (by Israel with help of American Shabbos goy controlled lackeys and all of the Jewish media) on November 22, 1963, the funding of Israel has literally skyrocketed. We have given Israel well over a hundred and thirty billion dollars of direct aid (more than three billion per year, this is more than any other country receives) and who knows how many tens or hundreds of billions in the most sophisticated military equipment. Somehow every year they keep getting unbelievable deals worth billions on military “surplus” advanced weaponry.

I could go on and on with this one topic, but the following sums it up well; on May 24, 2011, while giving a 45 minute speech in front of a joint meeting of Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received 29 standing ovations. Within 45 minutes we all visibly found out who really owns our House and Senate.

Sharon to Peres: “We Control America”

On October 3, 2001, I.A.P. News reported that according to Israel Radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael an acrimonious argument erupted during the Israeli cabinet weekly session last week between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his foreign Minister Shimon Peres. Peres warned Sharon that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and “turn the US against us. Sharon reportedly yelled at Peres, saying “I want to tell you something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.”

Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache, stated that she was not worried about negative ramifications the Israeli onslaught on Gaza might have
on the way the Obama administration would view Israel. She said:
“You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well,
that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president
can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable.
What can they [Americans] do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America.
In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel.”

Tzipora Menache

“The role of the President of the United States is to support the decisions that are made by the people of Israel.”

Ann Lewis, speaking for Hillary Clinton, at the meeting for Jewish Leadership sponsored by the United Jewish Communities on March 18, 2008. (Jewess Ann Lewis is sister to former Congressman Barney Frank).

16) Number one in incarceration (by far and away).

The United States prison industrial complex (turning more and more private) incarcerates far more people per person than any other country on Earth. Upwards of eight million people (one in 30 adults) are in the system, meaning they are under some sort of legal supervision like probation or parole, with some 2.3 million behind bars.

Some researchers state that upwards of 80% have perpetrated no violence against any other person. We are 4.6% of the world population yet we incarcerate about 25% of the world’s prison population. Approximately 150,000 juveniles are incarcerated in youth detention facilities alone. About 500,000 youth are brought to detention centers every year. These numbers do not reflect juveniles tried as adults. Private for-profit prisons with mandatory inmate quotas are growing very quickly in the United States.

 17) The United States is now a Police State.

Since September 11, 2011, we now have the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the National Defense Authorization Act, the Homeland Security Act and the Protect America Act, mutating to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. Together these illegal and repressive laws form a systematic curtailment of civil rights and freedoms. Our precious Bill of Rights has been thoroughly decimated.

On an average day in America, well over 100 Americans have their homes raided by SWAT teams. Many of these SWAT team raids are done mistakenly. Since 1995, SWAT teams have botched over 300 raids, and have killed more than forty innocent people and twenty nonviolent offenders. The police are killing the family pet in America once every 98 minutes.

18) Number one in consumption of the world’s natural resources.

Americans are only 4.6% of the world population, yet we consume 15% to 30% of all the resources. Every person in the United States is responsible for the consumption of 25 tons of raw materials each year. Americans use 75% more water per capita than the average person in the developed countries.

19) Number one in being overweight and obese.

Thirty-five percent of United States citizens are obese with another 34% that are overweight. The percent of adolescents age 12 to 19 years who are obese is now 18.4%. The percent of children age 6 to 11 years who are obese is now 18.0%. Most food includes high fructose corn syrup and monosodium glutamate (MSG) which both foster weight gain.

20) Number one in teen pregnancies among developed countries.

The teenage birth rate in the United States is the highest in the developed world, and the teenage abortion rate per capita is also amongst the highest.

21) Number one in rapes.

A 1997 report by the United States Bureau of Justice Statistics, which defines rape as forced penetration by the offender, found that 91% of rape victims are female and 9% are male. However, when prison rapes are included in the statistics it has been reported that, according to the United States Department of Justice, more men are raped in the United States than women. In 2008, it was estimated 216,000 inmates were sexually assaulted while serving time, compared to 90,479 rape cases outside of prison. The United States Justice Department estimates 300,000 American women are raped every year, and the Centers for Disease Control puts the number much higher at 1.3 million. Only 16% of the total cases are reported.

22) Number one in being in debt (both people and country).

The United States nominal debt is approaching 18 trillion. But when you total up all forms of debt including government debt, business debt, mortgage debt and consumer debt, we are 59.4 trillion dollars in debt. Most of this debt has been accumulated in recent decades. Over the past four decades we have allowed the total amount of debt in the United States to get 27 times larger. If you add up all of the unfunded obligations the government has — to Social Security, Medicare, federal workers’ pensions, and so on — the real debt is about 222 trillion. In total, American consumers owe 11.68 trillion in debt and counting. An increase of 3.7% from last year. We owe 8.15 trillion in mortgages, 1.2 trillion in student loans (an increase of 13.9% from last year) and 854.2 billion in credit card debt. The average per household credit card debt is 15,191 USD. Credit card debt has gotten so bad that now 35% of Americans are in debt to collection agencies.

23) Almost number one in least economic mobility among developed countries.

Among the developed countries, only in Italy and the United Kingdom is there less economic mobility than the United States. Some 134 countries have laws setting the maximum length of the work week; the United States does not. We are working harder yet have almost no chance of advancement.

“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few very powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate”

President James Garfield
From a 1881 speech, weeks before he was assassinated.

Using data by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics the average productivity per American worker has increased 400% since 1950.

24) Number one in deindustrialization.

Thanks to so-called free trade agreements like: North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the United States has become a deindustrialized country. Our infrastructure has been decaying. The American Society of Civil Engineers scorecard gives us an overall rating of D+. The breakdown by category is: aviation a D; bridges a C+; dams a D; drinking water a D; energy a D+; hazardous waste a D; inland waterways a D; levees a D-; ports a C; public parks and recreation a C-; rail a C+; roads a D; schools a D; solid waste a B-; transit a D; and wastewater a D. It is estimated that we will need upwards of a 4 trillion USD investment by 2020 to bring these dismal scores up. A couple of million good paying jobs could be created literally overnight to deal with this shameful situation. Why aren’t we doing this in the middle of a depression?

25) Number one in income disparity among developed countries.

Since the mid 1970s the upper 10% of income began to rise dramatically, while that of the bottom 90% started to fall. In 2012 the bottom 90%’s share is below 50% for the first time ever. Income inequality is now the highest it has been since 1928. Between 1979 and 2009, the top 5% of American families saw their real incomes increase 72.7%, according to Census data. Over the same period, the lowest-income fifth saw a decrease in real income of 7.4%.

26) Number one in pay for CEO’s.

American CEO’s are the highest paid in the world. As of 2011, Corporate CEO’s in America make 340 times what the average worker makes. As a comparison, in 1980, CEO pay was only 42 times more than the average worker.

27) Number one in decreasing wages among developed countries.

If you take the minimum wage of 1968 and adjust it to today it should be around 11.00 USD per hour. The minimum wage in the United States is 7.25 USD per hour. Another most interesting fact is; when you add in the extra productivity of the American worker over these same years (1968 through today), the real minimum wage should be around 25.00 USD per hour. This 17.75 USD difference between 7.25 USD and 25.00 USD is being stolen from the American worker, mainly by the upper 1%.

28) Number one in low wage workers among developed countries.

One in four employees were low-wage workers in 2009. That is 20% higher than in the number-two country, the United Kingdom. Belgium has the smallest share of its in employees working in low-wage jobs at just 4%. Low-wage work is defined as earning less than two-thirds of the country’s median hourly wage.

29) Number one in decreasing and disappearing pensions.

As recently as 1998, 52% of Americans over age 60 received income from a defined benefit pension, according to a new study by the National Institute on Retirement Security. By 2010, that figure had fallen to 43%. In the private sector, the decline has been more dramatic — down from 38% in 1979 to 15% in 2010. Meanwhile the United States government has stolen 2.7 trillion from the Social Security trust fund and replaced them with worthless IOUs.

30) Number one in least vacations among developed countries.

The United States is the only developed country in the world that has no legally mandated annual leave. American adult received about 13 days of holiday.

31) Number one in late retirement among developed countries.

Almost 25% of men aged 70 to 74 still work, up about 7% from ten years ago, and one-in-three men aged 65 to 69 are still on the job. Women are staying in their jobs longer, as well. More than 14% of women aged 70 to 74 are still employed. A substantial numbers of those 75 or older are also working; one-in-ten men and one-in-twenty women.

32) Number one in student loan debt.

Today the average college graduate student loan debt is approaching 35,000 USD. Americans now owe 1.2 trillion in student loans.

33) Number one in gun ownership.

The United States is far and away the number one country with guns per capita. We have 97 guns per 100 citizens, or just over 300 million guns. Our founding fathers were astute enough to give us a way to defend ourselves and our rights against government tyranny when they created the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, which reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Lately though, a certain group of political parasites (Feinstein, Schumer, Bloomberg, Emanuel and many others) have been trying really hard to take away our Second Amendment rights. As Dianne Feinstein has stated: “All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.” I couldn’t imagine why they really want to do this? Oh yes, perhaps they have their sights on murdering us like they did to the 66 million mostly unarmed Russians after they overthrew Czar Nicholas II in the Bolshevik, Communist and very Jewish Revolution in the fall of 1917.

34) Number one in plastic surgery.

The United States is number one in plastic surgery. According to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed in the United States in 2012.

35) Number one in breast augmentation surgery.

The United States is number one in breast augmentation surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation was the number one cosmetic surgery in the country in 2011 with 307,000 women getting the procedure.

36) Number one in anxiety disorders and depression.

I wonder how and why all of this diagnosis occurred? Oh, that’s right, we need to have a label put on someone in order to sell more and more pharmaceutical drugs. I think most of this is just another pathetic form of disaster capitalism in order to make outlandish profits for big pharma while creating millions of people that are living zombies.

37) Almost number one in divorce.

The United States has the third highest divorce rate of any country on Earth. The only two countries with higher rates are Russia, followed by Belarus.

38) Number one in fluoridation of its citizens.

In the United States about 73% of the fresh water we drink is fluoridated. We use water fluoridation more than all the other people on Earth, combined. We are also ingesting fluoride in many different products, including: toothpaste, sodas, juices, sports drinks, beers, many processed foods including infant foods, grape products, dried fruit, dried beans, cocoa powder, walnuts, tea leaves (particularly old tea leaves), brewed black tea, iced tea drinks, many pharmaceuticals and foods made with mechanically separated meat (e.g., chicken fingers, nuggets, etc).

The human studies, which are based on IQ examinations of over 11,000 children, provide compelling evidence that fluoride exposure during the early years of life can damage a child’s developing brain. A Harvard study found that fluoride lowers children’s intelligence by 7 IQ points Yes, please make us stupid, sick and give us cancer, thank you.

39) Number one in the growing and eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries there are considerable restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.

40) Number one in the ingestion of aspartame.

The person who was most influential in getting the deadly poison aspartame approved was Donald Rumsfeld when he was the CEO of G. D. Searle. Aspartame is by far the most dangerous substance added to foods today. It accounts for over 75% of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

41) Number one in the ingestion of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

The United States has the highest per capita consumption of HFCS at around 60 pounds per year. High fructose corn syrup is an industrial food product and far from “natural” or a naturally occurring substance.

42) Number one in the vaccination of children.

The United States has the highest number of mandated vaccines for children in the world. In the first year of life an infant is given 26 doses of 9 vaccines. By the age of six a child is given 48 doses of 14 vaccines. By the age of eighteen a total of 70 doses of 16 vaccines. It is interesting that the United States is 34th in the world for its children under 5 mortality rate.

43) Number one in autism.

The United States has the highest incidences of autism on Earth. According to a new report that has generated significant debate in mainstream media and all over the Internet, the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that one in 50 children and one in every 31 boys between the ages of 6 and 17 has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

44) Number one in electrical power grid blackouts among developed nations.

The United States grid loses power almost 300% more often than it did in 1984, when record keeping began. Weather used to account for about 20% of outages. Now, in the last five years, it’s accounting around 70% of all major outages. The root causes of the increasing number of blackouts are aging infrastructure and a lack of investment and a clear policy to modernize the grid.

45) Number one in oil production.

Oil exports, which were banned for more than 40 years in the United States are now being loosened, providing oil companies the opportunity to target lucrative markets in Europe and Asia.

46) Number one in energy and oil consumption.

The United States is far and away number one in energy consumption with a rate of 11.4 kW per person. Japan and Germany have an energy consumption rate of only 6 kW per person.

47) Number one in water consumption.

The United States is number one in per capita water consumption at 457,018 gallons per year. Our government estimates that each American uses over 100 gallons daily, but only 8.5% is what we use at home for cooking, cleaning or bathing. More than 40% is used to produce electrical power with 37% irrigating cropland. A further breakdown shows that meat consumption accounts for almost 30% of the American figure, and sugar consumption is responsible for another 15%.

48) Number one in film production.

The United States is number one in film production with what is known as Hollywood being the leader. The big problem with this is, the people who totally control this propaganda industry are Jewish. The films that they distribute always have their agenda. This is done either overtly or almost sublimely, but it is always there. Their films are fear, war or violent based. Every one of them. This is a major psychological weapon for their films are shown worldwide. As Louis B. Mayer stated: “We make the movies that make the people around the world think the way they think.” There is a relentless constant conditioning of opinion, with many storylines portraying the Jews as the innocent victims or the super intelligent and brave saviors helping or saving the world.

49 Number one in television production and watching.

Once again we are number one, this time at being programmed. The Jewish owned television networks of the United States are the largest and most syndicated in the world.

“Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”

                                  Bill Hicks

The hours per year the average American youth spends in school is 900 hours, the hours per year the average American youth watches television is 1,600. The number of violent acts seen on television by the time a person is 18, is 150,000. The number of 30 second television commercials seen in a year by an average child is 16,000.

50) Number one in creating false flag events.

And finally, for the last 116 years the United States has been number one in creating false flag events to start wars which have killed well over 100 million people. I must say, that this has always been done quite nefariously and covertly by our cunningly malevolent Jewish overlords using their control of finance, newspapers, magazines, motion pictures, radio and television. And now they control around 95% of the matrix.
