fall? When did we become a Third World Country?”
of you young adults will be asked this question by your children, who will be
unable to find the answer in the Common Core textbooks of the future.
you say? What will you tell your children about the time America
officially became a Third World country?
You might want to consider the
banker-bailout date of 2008 when describing the collapse of America to your
future children. America
has indeed collapsed and we are living through the “settling of the dust” post-collapse
period of our history.
In 1945, at
the close of World War II, America
produced 50% of the world’s goods despite only having five percent of the
population. In a mere 63 years, the bottom fell out of the United States of America.
It is tragic, beyond words, what has happened to our country. The following
recounts some of the reasons for our decline.
countries have spiraling out-of-control debt. Standard & Poor’s made it
official when it changed its label for America’s national debt from stable to negative. Subsequently, America
is now officially a Third World country.
Meanwhile, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America each report billions
in quarterly profit, while the US
is facing debt restructuring similar to Greece,
Italy, Spain and Cyprus.
crisis has also spread to nearly every state, as 46 states out of 50 states are
on the verge of bankruptcy and many of our cities are going broke. Detroit is the epitome of
a Third World city. [NB: This guy Hodges is a conservative to whom the R-word, race, is still unspeakable. - HAC] America’s
infrastructure is collapsing as evidenced by the pitiful condition of our roads
which are quickly obtaining Third World
The out of
control debt found in the Third World is
constantly being used against these countries by organizations such as the
World Bank and the IMF. Globalist banking organizations use the debt to begin
to acquire a nation’s infrastructure.
It happened in Bolivia through an unholy alliance
between Bechtel and the World Bank where water rates quadrupled and it became
illegal to even reuse irrigation water runoff and it was illegal to trap

banksters will own everything of substance. Does anyone still believe
the movie, The Hunger Games, wasn’t delivering a clear message as to what lies
ahead for all of us unless we can wake up enough people in time and change our
What a lot of
people don’t seem to realize is that when the Greatest Depression of 2008 hit,
the money that once filled the coffers of the American middle class did not
just evaporate into thin air. That money flowed somewhere and where it flowed
was into the pockets of the banksters and a few of their select minions
courtesy of the banker bailouts.
Cavernous income gaps characterize Third-World nations and since 2009 the United States
is right up there with the worst of the nations with regard to income
disparity. The income gap between the rich and poor has increased at a
staggering pace, while many more middle-class citizens [And we know what color those middle-class citizens are, even if the writer is unwilling to say so out loud. - HAC] are losing ground
on a daily basis.
The Center on
Budget and Policy Priorities report found that the income gap between the
wealthiest Americans and middle-income and working-class Americans has more
than tripled in the past thirty years.
Did you enjoy your prolonged nap while this was going on?
The CIA’s “Gini
index,“ which reports on the world’s income distribution found that the United
States has the 40th highest income gap disparity out of 136 nations measured.
Namibia is the worst and Sweden
is the best. The United States
income disparity is comparable to Jamaica
numbers, food stamps, and home foreclosures continue to reach new record highs.
Government-dependent people often have more discretionary income than a middle
income worker making $60,000 per year.
all of our economic woes, the economic free fall of our country has not
financially touched the members of Congress. This constitutes another
characteristic of Third World countries, in which the ruling elite and their law-making minions live high off the hog. The net worth of Congress continues to
rise despite the onset of the Greatest Depression.
The year 2008, was
the year that the Wall Street took over the nation’s money, both nationally and
individually and members of Congress laughed all the way to the bank. Financial
disclosure forms analyzed by Roll Call magazine, using the minimum valuation of
assets, showed that members of Congress, in 2010, had a collective net worth of
over $2 billion, which constitutes a $390 million increase from the $1.65
billion members of Congress enjoyed in 2008 at the time of the first bailout.
Slavery As a
Means to Fatten the Coffers of the Elite
Most Third World countries practice some form of overt and/or
covert forms of slavery which serve to economically benefit the elite. America is no
different. The US
has simply traded one form of slavery for another.
Despite the fact that the United States makes up less than 5% of the world’s
population, America’s prisons confine more than 25% of all people who are
incarcerated on the entire planet. An unknown but huge number of these prisoners perform labor at
twenty-three cents per hour while housed in our federal prisons contracted by
the Bureau of Prisons’ UNICOR.
UNICOR is a
for-profit corporation, and it is the US government’s 39th largest
contractor. Privatized prisons are the
fastest growing prisons in the United
States and they are normally guaranteed a
90% occupancy rate. This criminal corruption leads to a Third World type of
abuse of the public by police departments in order to meet arrest quotas which
guarantee the owners of the growing privatized prisons that they are promised
occupancy rates will be met.
lines, a plethora of stories document how the New York Police Department plants
drugs on innocent subjects in their controversial “stop and frisk” program in
which, in October 2011, a former NYPD narcotics detective testified that he
regularly saw police plant drugs on innocent citizens in order to meet preset
arrest quotas. George H. W. Bush is one
of the biggest players in the business of privatized prisons.
characteristic among Third World nations is a substandard health care system. I
recently polled a number of young adults as to where they thought the United States
fell with regard to life expectancy as compared to the rest of the world.
Before voting, many acknowledged that the US had slipped from its once lofty
position with regard to health care. Some people guessed that we had fallen to
fourth or fifth in longevity. Some people made even bolder predictions by
stating that we might have fallen as far down the life expectancy model as
What is your
vote? How long do Americans live in comparison to our international cohorts? After
all, the United States
spends twice as much as the average of any other modern country for health
care. In the US, we spend
17.6% of our GDP on health care, by far the highest percentage in the world and
what do we get for this Third World type of
*Fewer physicians (2.3 per 1,000 as compared
to 3.1 for the rest of the world).
*The number of hospital beds are fewer than
other nations (2.6 per 1,000 as compared to 3.4 for the rest of the world).
*The average American lifespan is 78.7 years
in 2010, more than one year less than the rest of the World’s OCED nations.
Now to answer
the previous mentioned survey question I posed to the group of young adults
which asked how long Americans live in comparison with the rest of the world.
Sadly, according to the CIA Factbook, the United States is 50th in world in
terms of life expectancy. Hong Kong is eighth and we have fallen behind Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Oh, and one other thing, Cubans live longer than Americans.
planning on having a baby and want to ensure its safety during the birthing
procedure? You would be better off moving to Cuba
where they have a lower infant mortality rate than the United States.
The United States
is amazingly number 47 in the world in infant mortality.
In fact, in
the United States
you are far more likely to be killed by your doctor than you are by a firearm.
Death by doctor exceeded 225,000, in a two year period while death by firearm
was only 9,601.
are paying far more for health care and reaping Third
World type of benefits. Today, health care is not about increasing
health and longevity, it is about separating American patients from as much of
their hard-earned money as possible. Obamacare, which is off to a disastrous
beginning, will prove to be the biggest genocidal and simultaneously
bankrupting factor in American history.
Evisceration of Personal Liberties
freedoms are often a casualty of a society in collapse. The NDAA has eliminated
due process from our Constitution which destroyed the Fifth, Sixth and Eight
Amendments to the Constitution. The Patriot Act eliminated the Fourth Amendment
of the Constitution. Obama is threatening to destroy the Second Amendment.
During a Presidential declared emergency, FEMA can snatch anything you own,
including you, thus, eliminating the First and Third Amendments. The entire Constitution is on life support.
Security (DHS) is arming against the American people as evidenced by its recent
2.2 billion rounds of acquired ammunition to go with the 2700 armored vehicles
recently purchased by DHS. These police powers typically go hand in hand with
collapsing economies in Third World countries which is what we are witnessing
and the following statistics bear this out.
remember that intellectual giant that occupied the White House prior to Obama?
His name is George W. Bush and in typical fashion he ignorantly stated “they
(the terrorists) hate us because of our freedoms.”
Do you remember that asinine statement? As
with most things uttered by this intellectually deprived ex-President, Bush was
dead wrong. The 2012 Legatum Institute’s Prosperity Index, notes that, with
regard to personal freedom, America
came in at 14th place which puts the US
in good company with Uruguay
and Costa Rica.
And when it comes to the Safety & Security comparisons, America came in at 27th putting the US on par with Bulgaria. These factors need to be coupled with the
fact that our small businesses and American citizens, those who bother to go to
work, pay the highest taxes in the world, thus increasing our level of
indentured servitude to the bankster-run government.
Manipulation and Control
media that censors information is a key component of Third
World countries. In some
countries, the media is openly owned by the State. In America, the corporations dominate
the government and these same corporations own the media. Therefore, we have
state-sponsored media control by default.
“In 1983, fifty corporations dominated most
of every mass medium … In 1987, the fifty companies had shrunk to twenty-nine.
… In 1990, the twenty-nine had shrunk to twenty three. … In 1997, the biggest firms
numbered ten….Today there are only 8 giant media companies dominating the US media
(Disney, AOL-Time Warner, Viacom, General Electric/NBC, Yahoo, Microsoft and
Google).- Ben H. Bagdikian, The Media Monopoly, Sixth
Edition, (Beacon Press, 2000), pp. xx—xxi
Then there is
former award-winning CNN special correspondent, Amber Lyon, who left CNN
because as she says, CNN was taking money from the federal government to
embellish and openly fabricate some stories while not covering other stories.
concentration of ownership has led to censorship when national and corporate
interests overlap, and in typical Third World
fashion, by default, we have government run media.
solution is to turn off the television.
protecting our children? Who stands for the preservation of parental rights?
abduction cases involving Stacy Lynne of Ft. Collins,
Colorado and Monika Wesolowski of Fairfax County, VA.,
stands as a horrific example of how agencies of the government can prey upon
children, destroy families and make a mockery of our justice system. Any
society that is not capable, or willing, to protect its children is not worthy
America is a conquered nation. When our
treasonous Congress approved the theft of the nation’s treasury by Wall Street
in the 2009 bailout, a bankster-sponsored economic coup d’état took over this
country and now we are witnessing the plundering of our personal assets as part
of the war booty.
America, you have no rights. You have no claim
to your property. You have no real liberties. You don’t even control your
children, and soon you will have no claim to your life. You are living in a
police state run by the Federal Reserve whose police state policies are
enforced by the DHS. In a few years, if you do nothing, many of
you reading these words will not be here to see the final roll-out of this
What shall we
do? My suggestion is read Thomas Paine’s pamphlet, Common Sense, and then start
deciding on your own what you need to do.
