Barack Obama: We Must Embrace Globalism And The Emerging One World Economy

Although it received very little coverage in the mainstream media, Barack Obama made some comments about globalism during his speech in Mumbai, India that were very eye-opening.  As he was discussing the new realities of world trade in 2010, Obama warned against "those who see globalization as a threat" and he spoke of the "integrated world" in which we all now live.  But is merging the entire globe into a one world economy, a one world financial system and a one world labor market really the best thing for the American people?

For the past two decades, all U.S. presidents have been heralding the benefits of merging the American economy with the rest of the globe.  George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama have all steadfastly supported the emerging one world economy.  These presidents have each used different terms to describe this process such as "globalism", "globalization", "an integrated world", "the global economy" and even "a New World Order", but they have all meant the same thing.  All of these presidents have sought to integrate the United States even more deeply into the developing one world economic system.

Barack Obama showed very clearly how he feels about globalism when he made the following statement during his speech in Mumbai....

"This will keep America on its toes. America is going to have to compete. There is going to be a tug-of-war within the US between those who see globalization as a threat and those who accept we live in a open integrated world, which has challenges and opportunities."

This is something that Barack Obama has obviously thought quite a bit about. In fact, during the same speech he warned that those supporting globalization will need to "guard against" those who would seek to put up barriers to the full integration of the economies of the world....

"If the American people feel that trade is just a one-way street where everybody is selling to the enormous US market but we can never sell what we make anywhere else, then the people of the US will start thinking that this is a bad deal for us and it could end up leading to a more protectionist instinct in both parties, not just among Democrats but also Republicans. So, that we have to guard against."

But in this new "global economy", aren't jobs leaving the United States and heading to developing nations at a blinding pace?  Of course, but apparently we are just supposed to shut up and accept this new reality.  In fact, Obama says that persistently high unemployment is "a new normal" that we are all just going to have to get used to.

Virtually all of the proponents of globalism understand that the process of merging the United States into a one world economy will be at least somewhat painful for the American people.  Our wages are going to have to go down and our standards of living are going to have to fall, according to them.

During this period of "adjustment", a "struggling economy" is just going to have to be tolerated.  In fact, Obama says that the U.S. economy might not be "fixed" for quite some time.  Obama now claims that there is a limit to what the U.S. government can do to help the economy....

"Especially an economy this big, there are limited tools to encourage the kind of job growth that we need."

But couldn't Obama and the U.S. Congress pass laws that would discourage the offshoring and outsourcing of our jobs?

Of course.

Couldn't they cut regulations and taxes and encourage firms to keep factories in the United States?

Of course.

But instead, Obama and the U.S. Congress have just been piling on more taxes and more regulations and have made the business environment in the U.S. so toxic that it is amazing that anyone is willing to stay in this country at this point.

Meanwhile, every single month more of our jobs, more of our factories and more of our wealth gets shipped overseas never to return.

Every day there is more depressing news about the U.S. economy.  For example, it has just been announced that Harley-Davidson has decided to open a shiny new assembly plant in India.  Meanwhile, formerly great American manufacturing cities such as Detroit have turned into rotting hellholes.

The American people are not being told the truth.  The following are 20 reasons why Barack Obama is wrong, wrong, wrong about globalization....

#1 American workers are being merged into a global labor pool where they must directly compete for jobs with workers on the other side of the globe that make less than ten percent of what an average American worker makes.  In such an environment, it is inevitable that jobs are going to flow away from areas where labor is expensive and to areas where labor is cheaper.

#2 Globalization has caused the U.S. trade deficit to absolutely explode.  In 1985, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 6 million dollars for the entire year.  In the month of August alone, the U.S. trade deficit with China was over 28 billion dollars.

#3 Today, the United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that China spends on goods from the United States.  This represents a massive transfer of wealth from the American people to China.

#4 According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs this year alone.

#5 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001.

#6 The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#7 Even high technology industries are leaving America.  Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

#8 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of all U.S. economic output.  In 2008, it represented only 11.5 percent.

#9 As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing.  The last time that less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

#10 With so much manufacturing leaving the United States, is it any wonder why people can't find jobs?  The "official" unemployment rate in the United States has been at nine and a half percent or above for 14 consecutive months.

#11 Today, there are at least 1.5 million "99ers" - those Americans that have completely exhausted all 99 weeks of unemployment benefits and that still do not have jobs.

#12 Our dependence on foreign oil also represents an absolutely shocking transfer of wealth from the American people to the oil exporters of the Middle East.  Back in 1980, the United States imported approximately 37 percent of  the oil that we use.  Now we import nearly 60 percent of the oil that we use.

#13 Energy imports account for about approximately one-fourth of the U.S. trade deficit.

#14 In states such as Mississippi, people spend approximately 6.35 percent of their incomes just on gasoline, according to a recent report by the National Resources Defense Council.

#15 Americans end up paying to support American workers one way or another.  Either they buy American-made products and services that provide jobs for American workers, or they pay to support unemployed American workers on welfare.  Today, over 42 million Americans are on food stamps.  A record number of Americans are receiving long-term unemployment benefits.  One way or another, Americans are going to pay to take care of American workers.

#16 The U.S. trade deficit is running about 40 or 50 billion dollars a month in 2010.  The United States spends 40 to 50 billion more on goods and services from the rest of the world each month than they spend on goods and services from us.  That means that by the end of the year, approximately half a trillion dollars (or more) of our wealth will have left the United States for good.

#17 All of this wealth leaving the United States is having a huge impact on the standard of living of average Americans.  Ten years ago, the United States was ranked number one in average wealth per adult.  In 2010, the United States has fallen to seventh.

#18 It is now just a matter of time until India is going to pass us as an economic power.  In fact, the economy of India is projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2050.

#19 It is now being projected that China will soon dwarf us as an economic power.  One prominent economist now says that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.  According to one recent study, China could become the global leader in patent filings by next year.

#20 China has been accumulating a gigantic mountain of dollars from all of the wealth we have been sending them each month, and they have been lending massive amounts of money back to us.  Over the past few decades, the communist Chinese have been able to accumulate approximately $2.5 trillion in foreign currency reserves, and the U.S. government now owes them close to 900 billion dollars.  We constantly have to send top government officials over there to beg them to continue to lend us money.  This is a direct threat not only to our financial system, but also to our national security.

So, in light of all of those facts, can anyone out there possibly defend Barack Obama's position that globalization is good and that we should be happy that we are being merged into a one world economy?

Sadly, there are very, very few politicians in either major political party that will even talk about the negative effects of the emerging one world economy.  It is almost as if there is an unspoken consensus that globalism is the future and that it is a good thing for America.

But it is not a good thing for America.  Unless fundamental changes are made, America will continue to bleed wealth, will continue to bleed factories and will continue to bleed jobs.

The American people need to wake up and starting saying "NO" to globalization.  If we continue to vote for politicians that support merging our economy with economies that allow workers to be paid slave labor wages, then we are going to see even more waves of horrific unemployment and we will continue to see the standard of living of middle class Americans diminish.

This is not a drill.  America is being deindustrialized.  The greatest economic machine in the history of the world is being dismantled.

Eventually, all of our cities are going to end up looking just like Detroit if we allow this to continue.

Is that what you want?

    This is as Orwellian as it gets. What we’re looking at is the difference between globalism [what they want us to think it means] and Globalism(TM) [what it really means].

    The former is a nice place where people get along and live happily ever after.

    The later is a dark place in which money creation and usury flow from even darker places to an enslaved world of globalized minions.

    Nice of the president to give us all a headsup on the wage deflation that’s coming a lot quicker than any of us think. So quickly that most of us may end up homeless, until the supply of renters with money is so low that the landlords have to slash their rents.

    “OUTSOURCE AMERICA” that’s our new name and also a mission statement all rolled into one.

    Globalization is good only for multinational companies’ top executives and their largest shareholders, who enjoy the financial benefits stemming from it.

    For the rest of the world’s population, it is a disaster, and not only for the Americans.

    Westerners lose good and well paid jobs and Asians get low paid jobs in terrible working conditions. The rate of industrial accidents in Asia is mindblowing.

    More than 10 years ago, I left my country, France, for Thailand, a country also chosen by Marc Faber, whom I didn’t know at that time.

    In Thailand, and the same is true in neighbouring countries, life has not the same value as in Europe. And employers know that, and take advantage of it.

    No, or litlle, safety regulations, reduce production costs, but increase accidents.

    Walking in a city, one can see, at any time, an electrician, wearing no protection gear, falling from a post, literally in flames! having been shocked and burnt by a few thousand volts!
    Keeping on walking, one can see construction workers’ young children playing on the tenth floor of a building under construction, where there are absolutely no protections to keep anyone from falling to the ground!
    In factories, people lose hands and arms, while using machines deprived of basic security systems.

    Besides security issues, there are also social problems, resulting from globalization.

    For example, in countries like Thailand, most factory workers used to be farmers and lived with their extended family, generally including 3 generations.

    But when they decide to leave their farm to go work in a factory, supposedly for a better income, parents (father and mother) have to leave their very young children with their grandparents.

    And since holidays are not part of the deal (no 4 or 5 weeks of paid holidays here), they will see their babies or kids at best once or twice a year, each time for a couple of days.

    Most of the money earned by the parents is sent back home, to help raise their children. With the remainder, they rent a single room, with a single cold water shower, which they often share with 2 or 4 other workers. A most unpleasant life.

    These are just a few examples, intended to show that globalization is bad for both sides: the side losing the jobs (US, Europe), as well as the side getting them (Asia).

    “But is merging the entire globe into a one world economy, a one world financial system and a one world labor market really the best thing for the American people”
    A few thousands years ago a pharaoh aske “But is setting people free is really the best thing for the ruling class?”. A few hundreds years ago the the Pope asked “But is it good for the christianity to have Jerusalem occupied by Muslims?”. A few decades ago a german ruler asked “But is it good for the arians to live so close to jews?”

    Get out ot this tribalist mindset. The world is small. You can circle it in 24 hours. We don’t live in a world where your neighbours are only 200 km away.

    Was it good for the rest of the world when US was printing money like crazy? The same mindset (“we are important, the rest doesn’t matter”) created the problem we’re in.

    The road to imported poverty is on my doorstep. I lost most, if not all of my home equity, and now QE1 and 2 are draining my savings and retirement accounts. I’ve lost my income (heath reasons)for years now, and I’m looking at my future with tears in my eyes. Globalism is going to force major political changes too, that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago! Heat and pressure will change the formation of any material(Country)! How many Americans have to sink into poverty, before we stop this export of wealth? Save our country now! We are already 30 years into this road to poverty. The trend is accelerating instead of slowing, is patriotism dead? Is nationalism dead for the world’s sake? All of our leaders, in the last 30 years seem to be in favor of Globalism, but none of them are looking at poverty in the face! I am!

  • http://leibowitzsociety.blogspot.com Leibowitz Society

    Obama is looking more and more like one of the late Roman Emporers — maybe Honorius. Instead of telling the Britains that they had to look to their own defenses, Obama is admitting economic defeat and telling the American people that they will have to kowtow to foreign control over their livelihood and financial well-being, because there is nothing left to fight a global economic battle. Strong, young, vibrant societies on the ascent have strong leaders who wish to bring wealth and prosperity to their people. Weak, dying societies have leaders who try to bend to the will of the enemies of their people. There can be no better sign of our impending collapse than a vacuum of leadership.

    >>> “In [globalization], it is inevitable that jobs are going to flow away from areas where labor is expensive and to areas where labor is cheaper.”

    Absolutely correct, and the Fat Cat CEOs love it because they pocket the difference and share some with the politicians that made it all happen. A political system that was not corrupted by campaign cash would not have permitted this to happen, and only public funding of campaigns will stop further erosion.

    Globalism may be good for the US but it is bad for America. The US is the alien entity that has fully occupied America and held the People in bondage since 1933 but they began encroaching on her in 1914 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act.

    They now own more than 50% of the land mass of America and hold the rest as collateral against the debt that America owes them.

    Obama is one of “them”.

    Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we?

    Obama said this entire “jobs offshoring” is a myth!

    Hillary Clinton, visting India over a year ago and meeting with Indian business executives, said that America still has more jobs to be offshored to them.

    These aren’t democrats, not Obama, neither Clinton nor Carter (and I doubt if LBJ was an authentic dem either).

    Bill Clinton has earned about, or more than, $100 million since he’s been out of the White House lobbying on behalf of the jobs offshoring industry.

    This is about the multinationals and their profit and socipathic greed.

    Just as the “war” in Afghanistan is about Chinese mining companies mining Afghan copper under the protection of the US military, for their factories and production facilities in China to profit them, and most importantly, those multinationals, just as the oil that comes from southern Iraq goes to China for the very same reason.

    And those gas and oil pipelines running across Afghanistan end in India, to support their infrastructure for the multinationals and Indian billionaires.

    And those Indian Hindu construction companies building roads in Afghanistan, under the protection of Indian “paramilitary” forces, all these so-called wars are the extension of multinational control for profit, pure and simple.

    Any other reasons are pure BS.

    The only hope is to get an authentic democrat in the White House, not an Obama, not a Clinton, not an Edwards, not a Palin, nor a Paul; a real and authentic democrat and progressive.

    Here’s wishing us all a massive dose of luck….

    Market expect political gridlock and this actually be a good thing!

    First of all bi-partisan bickering resumes.

    http://www.hedgethebets.com/latest/2010/11/markets-expect-political-gridlock-and-why-it-could-actually-be-a-good-thing/#biPartisanBickeringResumes

    President Obama pledged to work with the Republicans, but why should they want to work with him now? Paying lip service to bipartisanship has no practical implications. It certainly simplifies the blame-game if you can pin failures on the “ruling” party. President Obama will face the choice between rejecting GOP bills–which have a free pass at least in the GOP-controlled House–only to be seen as an obstructionist. Or he can sign them into law and be seen as though he betrayed his Democratic base.

    The GOP is in a far more comfortable position. The sweeping tidal wave of the midterms can be portrayed as a clear mandate to govern. The GOP will certainly pursue its vision of a much smaller government with lower spending. Whether they will retaliate by cutting Democratic pet causes or attempt a lasting reform remains to be seen.

    http://www.hedgethebets.com/latest/2010/11/markets-expect-political-gridlock-and-why-it-could-actually-be-a-good-thing/#theStimulus

    John M. Keynes’ Depression-era General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was aligned with the policies of the New Deal and delivered results, but is largely misunderstood today. It is not about big government mindlessly going on a spending spree with borrowed money. Keynes actually suggested that the government should run a surplus in good times to pay off the debt acquired in bad times. He also suggested the government should borrow and redistribute money in bad times to stimulate the economy by increasing aggregate demand. It should channel the spending through the hands of consumers who have the highest propensity to spend so that they actually do spend and prop up demand in the process.

    Instead, we have been doing the exact opposite. We let the government borrow and wastefully spend on our behalf in fairly good economic times only to begin exercising demand-killing austerity in hard times. We let the government borrow and spend a mind-boggling amount of stimulus money on all things not “Keynesian” such as, ultimately, bank(st)er’s bonuses. As a result, banks don’t lend and consumers don’t spend.

    We didn’t follow the Keynesian model but we like to criticize it for “not working”.

    One thing is for sure, a health care reform which covers an additional 30 millions of Americans is certainly laudable even though in its current form it is an economic suicide. Former President Bill Clinton managed to pull off an economic recovery (made possible by the dot com boom) because he put it first, ahead of everything else. President Barack Obama hired his economic team and then pretty much left it up to them while he himself hurried to do too much in too little time on other fronts.

    On the upside, at least we won’t become a second Europe!

    As President Barack Obama’s economic is turning into an utter failure and disintegrating as we speak, we are about to swiftly shift–under the leadership of the GOP–from a bad economic policy to a worse one: austerity. Harsh austerity is a misguided idea of the Austrian School of Economics, widely practiced in Europe under Germany’s “leadership”. It didn’t work in over-regulated and over-taxed Europe, why should it work here in the USA? It won’t.

    I have a confession to make… I actually fell for that “hope and change” stuff. Back in 2008 when I was young and naive, I really thought a fresh young face who was “out of the Washington loop”, would actually fix at least part of the mess this country is in.

    How wrong I was. Turns out Obama is as much a politician as all the rest of them. The solution to excessive spending is NOT to spend even more. Gee whiz, even a 5 year old know that! Yet our President and his buddies and cronies, insist in spending more and more money we don’t have.

    Someday, our foreign creditors will do to this great country what perhaps your creditors are doing to you, when you don’t pay your credit card bill. Hey, they’re doing it right now! Why not sell the Grand Canyon to Beijing? Maybe we could get several trillion in the deal, and buy enough time to keep the wolves from the door a little longer.

    In regard to Obama and his predecessors belief system for our economy, it was plainly printed a few years back how this Globalization will happen using usurpation and tyranny.

    Hamilton on the Rule of Law

    Alexander Hamilton
    If it be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be: An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last. It is by this, in a great degree, that the rich and powerful are to be restrained from enterprises of a general sentiment, by their interest in the principle, and by the obstacles which the habit it produces erects against innovation and encroachment. It is by this, in a still greater degree, that caballers, intriguers, and demagogues are prevented from climbing on the shoulders of faction to the tempting seats of usurpation and tyranny.
    A large and well organized Republic can scarcely lose its liberty from any other cause than that of anarchy, to which a contempt of the laws is the high road…
    A sacred respect for constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.
    –Alexander Hamilton, Letter No. III to the American Daily Advertiser, Aug. 28, 1794, in The Writings of Alexander Hamilton pp. 830-31.

    See how these nitwit politicians use the ‘One world philosophy’ to line there f@#%n pockets. The one world that we are has nothing to do with the selfish separated view of the economy a handful of men like Obama and Political leaders world wide PARROT ON ABOUT to line there and there mates pockets, thereby making sure starvation continues, poverty exists and wars become more intense. The One world philosophy means ending poverty, starvation, greed and sharing the wealth of Mother Earth equally; as we are all tied to her womb by an invisible umbilical cord baby. Peace!

    You stated in above article: In fact, Obama says that persistently high unemployment is “a new normal” that we are all just going to have to get used to.

    I followed your link and what the Washington Post article actually said implied a very different attitude. Article said: “Without additional government action to spur hiring, President Obama said Sunday that he fears the U.S. economy could enter a “new normal” in which corporate profits are high but the number of new jobs is too low to reduce the nation’s 9.6 percent unemployment rate to pre-recession levels. “What is a danger is that we stay stuck in a new normal where unemployment rates stay high,” he said in an interview aired Sunday night on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

    Did you actually misunderstand this, or intentionally distort it?

    However, having said this, I would agree with your misquoted sentiment. Like it or not, it’s not our parent’s world anymore. You can fight it, deny it, but the train has left the station.

    What’s so FUNNY about all this is that the great global oligopolies and monopoles (the 1% that owns us all) were predicted by Marx (and many others) over a hundred years ago – monopoly and oligopoly are the NORMAL “maturity” state of Capitalism.

    What makes it EVEN FUNNIER is that Marx thought that “…with Democracy the workers would be able to protect themselves from unfettered Capitalism.” What makes that EVEN MORE FUNNY is that he never understood that workers WOULD ACTUALLY RATHER continue to vote for the RICH GETTING RICHER no matter how badly it hurt them.

    It’s all self inflicted – the American Myth – Freedom and Liberty – the American Myth – unregulated Capitalism can save us all – BS – total, unmitigated BS – but hey at least there is still the 11 Nuclear Carrier Battle Groups. Way too many American workers are brain dead morons!

    Good television programs and decent hard working people. Not what I see today.
    We all know why they are building FEMA Camps and have Militarized our Police Forces. Get ready folks, hell is coming to this once great country. And I do mean HELL ON EARTH.
    God help us if We can not stop this.
    I am afraid that the vast majority of the people in this Country are too dumbed down and too ignorant to save this Country.
    I look at the devastation that is coming and I have to ask myself why We as a People have let this happen to us.
    When, if ever, are We going to say Enough is enough?

    Taking EVERYTHING into consideration, in addition to our companies going overseas to buy cheaper labor, the US GOVERNMENT IS IMPOSING HEAVY FINES AND REGULATION REQUIREMENTS MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR COMPANIES TO CONTINUE OPERATING HERE, EVEN IF LABOR COSTS WERE TO STAY THE SAME.

    No Barry, we’re not going to embrace globalism or the new world order, instead we suggest that you embrace liberty and the existing Constitution of the United States of America or get the heck out. This country has no need for fundamental transformation, except to boot marxists, socialists and lame brains like you out of office and the country.

    No globalism, no new world order, no death camps and no tyranny. We’re saying no to you and your puppetmasters lies.

    Since you are the “boy who runs like a duck” according to your muslim friends out there, you can just wag your tail feathers and run yourself out of our country and create that socialist marxist nightmare utopia of yours somewhere else. And don’t forget to take that America hating creepy wife of yours with you.

  • Edward

    There is one Book that details what is taking place now and will take place in the future. The Bible clearly speaks of a “One World Government” where a leader will emerge who will rule over every aspect of our lives. We are clearly marching towards that end now. What we need to do as a Nation is humble ourselves before God and acknowledge Him as the Most High. Accept His free offer of eternal life by His grace, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Please consider His offer, while there is still time. Jesus said “I am the Way the Truth and The Life.” He is the only Hope our Nation, or we as individuals have.

    Obama didn’t get to where he is by himself; he’s not that talented. There were horrible machinations working behind the scenes to get him in his position. He’s been groomed for such a time as this and the machinations that got him in the White House are working overtime to see that he stays there. It’s not a coincidence that the entire world is going broke all at once. This has been planned for decades. I pray we haven’t waited too long.

  • Denise

    @Nathan…The One world philosophy means ending poverty, starvation, greed and sharing the wealth of Mother Earth equally; as we are all tied to her womb by an invisible umbilical cord baby……………..

    Grow up and cut the cord. Hard work and compensation for your hard work is the only way to get ahead. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING should be handed to anyone. Not by the government, not by Mother Earth. The government wants you to think that they’ll take care of you. Here’s a surprise for you…they won’t. They’ll give you enough to survive on, but not enough to stand on your own two feet…baby.

    Globalism is being used by leaders of all nations, who want to be a part of the One World Government.

    The One World Government will have a One World Financial System, One World Currency and One World Religion.

    Who is behind these leaders?

    Read your Holy Bible’s, Christians.

    Wake up!!!

    Revelations, the last book in the Holy Bible says, He (Satan) won’t allow anyone to buy or sell without His mark (submission to Him).

    Satan is behind the One World Thing..
    He wants to control the world, but He is permitted to do so, only for 7 years, after the rapture of True Christians. At the end of those 7 years, His dominion ends, and He will be dumped into the lake of fire,by the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Those who have eyes, let them read..
    and those who have understanding, let them understand. Those who don’t understand, seek understanding from Lord Jesus!

    Do not be fooled by this man of great charisma and power. His name is Obama the ANTICHRIST who will force people to accept the mark of the beast 666 (that is, RFID chips). This is the just as the bible predicted – take note, all 10000+ prophecies in the bible to this date has come true, without a single exception. Obama is working under the forces of evil and is an agent of satan.

  • http://WBDM Joe in JT

    I watched a good documentary about Adolf Hitler last week, and one point really stood out. Basically the German people got sick and tired of a two or three party political system that never got anything accomplished. The German people wanted on thing in the 1930′s, and that was a job! Hitler tactically forced his way into power, and the German people were glad. They said, “finally a man who can get things done”! Hitler built the AutoBon and put thousands of people to work.

    Now today, already people are sick and tired of O’Bama, and they feel nothing is getting done, especially in the jobs department. Little Bush single handedly ruined this country, with fake wars and Wall Street run a muck. The point is this, we as a country are headed straight for what Germany did in the 1930′s. The American people are getting fed up with nothing getting done, no jobs. Finally a tyrant will come along and do what Hitler did, give everyone a government job. But the downside will be World War 3 that the tyrant begins. That’s what’s in store for America.

  • Russ

    Democrat or Republican, Obama or Bush, the result is the same; America is bankrupt.

    And we have only ourselves (we the Sheeple) to blame ! (yes, I know most politicians are idiots who are only making it worse….)

    When the uninformed, undereducated (m)asses quit voting for the politicians who promise them the most goodies, then MAYBE we can start to turn this country around.

    Since the (m)asses are too busy watching ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to give a damn about what really matters, we get the alternative:

    - Bankruptcy (‘default’, when a country does it)
    - Total collapse of the economy
    - Mass starvation and panic
    - Good opportunity for a foreign power to attempt
    an invasion and takeover of the US.
    - Don’t be surprised if China attacks militarily when we default – the Chinese take their money VERY seriously….

    The time is now to prepare !
    Stockpile food and ammo.

    Hyperinflation is coming very soon; start converting your cash (if you have any) into silver.

    Brace yourselves; this one is going to make the 1930′s Great Depression look like a walk in the park.

    Hey Fill,
    Why don’t you wait until you have conclusive proof that the Bible is superstition before you call it so! So far, the prophetic time-table is running right on time. I am sorry if TRUTH is not congruent with your world view. I think that is a more accurate appraisal of your comment. You don’t like TRUTH and would much rather believe the LIE!

  • http://colonelgirdle.wordpress.com/ colonelgirdle

    Since our domestic “leadership” is so substandard, perhaps we should outsource it like we have so much else. And after all, the Chinese, Mexican, or Sri Lankan politicians who would take-over the job of running America could not possibly have less consideration for the needs of ordinary Americans than have the U.S. politicians for these past 30 years.

    In 1992 then president George Bush senior went to the United Nations for Agenda 21 (aka Sustainable Development) it is the 1992 United Nations real declaration on the environment and development. He brought it back to the states and in 1993 president Clinton signed executive order 12852 – President’s Council on Sustainable Development . Why is this so important, because it is the New World Orders plans to take over the world and is in effect happening as we speak. What it does is places nature above man, and systematically enslaves the people of the united states. Here is whats in store for you. It is the end of national sovereignty, the abolishment of private property, restructure of the family unit, increasing restrictions on mobility and individual oppertunity. The Green Goal lists those things that are not considerd substainable under the new global government these are private property, fossil fuels, golf courses, ski lodges, consumerisim, irrigation, paved roads, commercial aggriculture, herbisides, pesticides, farm land, the family unit, and the abolishment of the constitution. All human beings are to be rounded up and placed into settlement zones, education systems will focus soley upon enviroment. A commuter line will be built along the rail ways, along with 14 story living units along side that. Santa cruz has already been given 300 million dollars to start construction on the first 3000 units. All children are to be turned over to the state for indoctrination into the new global community, and it gets better. They want to dummie our children down even more, because it states that too much education is a substainable threat to the new global order. Folks I wish I was making this sh*t up, In order to accomplish their goal the global financial markets have to be collapsed, think about it.. do your homework…. because this is pure evil and its all true.

    To “Rob Wessels” go back to school!! Globalism in its definition is total communism!! Get a clue; read a book!!

    I just read the post from William Sidwell. Thank you for reprinting this Alexander Hamilton writing. Our forefathers used the brains God gave them to create the possiblity of freedom here in America. We have just about obliterated the dream entirely.

    The world leaders all work for one institution that can never or will never be seen by little people like us(everyday citizen)

    The hidden institution controls the world leaders that are seen in the public eye,and if anyone of the world leaders will go astray from any of the written plan,they will be dealt with by force(assassination) They control wars, where they start and when they should end.

    They also control where the money should flow and when it should stop. What the Hidden institution has accomplished in the U.S.A since it first emerge as a 50 state,one language,one currency,etc…. is there main goal in doing it to the rest of the world.

    U.S.A is only a mock model of what this hidden institution will do to the rest of the planet.

    They are called THE BILDERBERG… These are couple of handful of the richest human beings on the planet that want everyone in this world under there thumb.

    Jesus Christ said in the Bible, What does a man profit if He gains the whole World but looses His own soul in the lake of fire…

  • 007

    The video showed the problem of the economic effects of our collapsing economy. However, it was almost to much to take trying to listen to the author saying the problem was that we needed to increase the welfare state. That totally distracts from the true causes of our economic crisis. You carefully point out these causes every day to try to enlighten people. I hope people do not watch this video and believe the problem is that Obama is not liberal enough and needs to expand the welfare state and increase spending. The video was pure left wing propaganda.

    • Michael

      The parts of the video that I felt were so compelling was the footage of the poverty and suffering.

      Everyone knows how critical I am of Obama. :)
