BIGGEST PEACEFUL COUP IN WORLD HISTORY
THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS IS ALMOST GONE
By: Al Cronkrite
The culture of the United States of America is beginning to adjust to the new
economic status brought on by the trade treaties and the world government legislation
passed by our elected officials. The vibrant middle
class that was a Hallmark of the nation has succumbed to the exportation of millions of
high paying jobs to cheaper locales and the retail outlets that were supported by that
former affluence are beginning to close their doors.
A poorer society
cannot support the broad selection of retail opportunities American shoppers have enjoyed
and store closings are beginning to restrict the selection in marginal cities.
Prior to the Real
Estate debacle the Florida town where I live was expanding at a record rate. A South
Florida developer had purchased a large horse farm and gotten approval to construct homes
and a major outdoor shopping center. Construction began. Dillards opened,
Dicks Sporting Goods, Old Navy, Barnes and Noble, Kohls, H. H. Gregg, McAllisters Deli,
Panera Bread and McDonalds. Scores of additional stores were constructed and several
small businesses leased space. The real estate crash halted construction. Many
of the smaller stores went out of business leaving acres of newly constructed retail
spaces and residential lots that may never be used. The anchor stores now stand as
lonely lumps in an emaciated skeleton starved by the death of the middle
On the other side
of a major highway an older indoor shopping Mall has lost two anchor stores and has
several vacancies. The Gap just closed. New renters are textile stores on
short leases; some of these have opened and closed within a month or two. A new shop
just opened offering a Chinese foot massage. The Mall was built in the 1980s and the high
end jeweler that closed the beginning of this year and the mens clothing store that
just closed a couple of months ago were anchor stores. These are stores that like
The Gap have been supported by the upper Middle class.
has a list
of significant business failures by year going back into the 1930s. I counted
the failures during the last decade of the Twentieth Century and the First decade of the
Twenty First Century. My figures may not be exactly accurate but the comparative
rates are astounding. I counted 87 failures during the 1990s compared to 327 from
2000 through 2010. Read
recent statistics here.
According to a Pew
survey the middle class net worth dropped 28 percent in the decade following 2001 while
the upper one percent edged higher. They attributed this distinction to plummeting
home values that impacted the middle class while wealthier people held broader based
assets. While inflation has torn away at the value of the dollar middle class family
income has declined by about 4 percent in the new century. From 1970 into the new
century the percentage of total income enjoyed by the wealthy has risen from 29 percent to
46 percent while the middle class share has declined from 62 percent to 45 percent. Read the results of
the survey here.
In this new world
created over the heads of the American people the United States will bear no resemblance
to the proud, affluent and powerful nation that emerged victorious after WWII. The
objective is to flatten out the nations of the world making them more homogeneous and
easier to govern. United States wealth is long gone replaced by trillions of dollars
of debt that will enslave its citizens for generations..
Germany has been propagandized as the primary Satan of the Twentieth Century but it is a
myth created to hide the wholesale wickedness of the Russian Revolution. Several
decades ago Norman Dodd, then Director of Research to the Reece Committee, visited Alan
Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation to explain why Congress was investigating
foundations. Before he could explain, Mr. Gaither said,
"Mr. Dodd, all of us who have a hand in the making of policies here, have had
experience operating under directives, the substance of which is, that we use our
grant-making power so as to alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably
merged with the Soviet Union."
It seems apparent
now that what Henry Kissinger and President Nixon promised the Chinese during their visits in
1971 and 1972 was the United States of America offered up like the head of John the
Baptist. No wonder the Chinese were interested! A scant 30 years later China
is not only beneficiary of our manufacturing base but it also holds mortgages on our
massive supplies of coal and oil.
A stupendous world
change has occurred during the past several decades. Assets of the worlds
wealthiest nation were peacefully removed by a legislative agenda sold to the people as
beneficial and passed by their democratically elected politicians. This legislative agenda
was planned in advance with the wile of The Serpent and as the devastating results set in
a War on Terrorism was used to hide them and to deflect the animosity. The United
States of America has now become the puppet of the money powers who have cannily used debt
to enslave the world.
The time for
redemption has passed. The horse is out of the barn. America cannot be
redeemed! We are no longer a nation of pseudo-Christians with European roots.
Immigration policies have filled our fruited plains with a variety of hungry immigrants
who have been granted an opportunity made possible by several generations of hard working
legally upright citizens. It was given away as if it had no value and used as a tool
to balkanize and divide the country. Consensus is now extremely difficult. The goal
has been accomplished, it cannot be stopped.
It has been the
biggest peaceful coup in the history of mankind
world-wide, corporations spawned and nourished in America are forced to move their
production to low wage countries by international agreements made over the heads of
citizens, our balkanized nation must compete with this cheap labor. The competition
includes China, Japan, India, Singapore, and Korea. These are nations of hungry,
intelligent, well educated, industrious people that are willing to work seven days a week
to acquire some of the luxuries Americans have enjoyed for decades. This transition
will take more than a generation and by the time it is over the United States will be an
insignificant part of the world.
It was not honest
competition that sank the good ship America but a massive burglary carried out in
darkness. So far the theft has been successful. We know who the burglars are
but they are holding the citizens hostage while they remain free..
We are no longer
the righteous nation that Alexis
de Tocqueville so brilliantly described nearly two centuries ago. The transition
started in earnest with the success of the ACLUs
legal challenges to Christianity. Under the false assumption that separation of
church and state meant that Christianity had to be removed from government and from the
public square the ACLU conducted a legal war against Christianity that succeeded in
banning any overt conduct of the nations primary religion. This Kosher war
against Christianity was not only evident in government but included our institutions of
higher learning as well. The Christian Church failed to mount an aggressive counter
attack allowing Satans minions to achieve a victory.
Now, as the
American middle class disappears and businesses begin to close we can begin to see the
fruition of what Alan Gaither of the Ford Foundation said to Norman Dodd over fifty years
ago. We are beginning to resemble the Soviet Union.
