Weekly new unemployment claims dropped last week to 388,000 which is the lowest they have been since July of 2008. Of course we have seen the highest retail spending on Christmas since 2008. Do you think the two might have something to do with one another? The fact is the number of people receiving long term unemployment rose for the week.
We will get to see the ugly truth when the yearly unemployment report is released sometime in the next two weeks. The way the mainstream propagandists are back peddling from their positive growth dogma, I have to believe the yearly report will show unemployment to be unexpectedly high.
The propagandists are also once again reporting on the housing crisis. Apparently it is pretty bad and destined to get worse. This is a prime example of how the mainstream propagandists can make an issue of national importance literally cease to exist, during a time when it is advantageous to their bosses to do so.
When they were pushing for the Bush era tax cuts for the top 2% they made it seem as if the housing crisis was over, the recession was over, and if we would just throw some billions of dollars to the rich they were going to trickle on us and prosperity would spread throughout the land.
That was just a couple of weeks ago. Today they are saying the housing crisis is worse than ever, the filthy rich are more insecure than ever, and they are still going to trickle on us but it will only result in us getting wet.
It is my observation that the vast majority of our citizenry does not believe a single word coming out of the mainstream press. So why do they continue to lie on? They do so for the same reason the Soviet and Chinese do. And that is to let you know that they are there and have established such power over you that it is futile to resist.
This is why the propaganda machine is the first thing that must be destroyed. If we show them that we not only do not believe them but we will not tolerate them any further we can establish the first beachhead from which all further attacks can be launched. If you are among those who would like to take up the fight, there are ways of targeting the propagandists. You will find suggestions in the article, 99ers Launch a Counter-Attack. We must start working to make a change. In the words of Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and woman to do nothing.”
