Diversity Vs. Halloween—

Can Your Neighborhood Pass

The Trick-Or-Treat Test?

http://www.vdare.com/articles/diversity-vs-halloween-can-your-neighborhood-pass-the-trick-or-treat-test

It’s fitting that Ray Bradbury, the author of the acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451, considered his most important work a children’s story. Called The Halloween Tree, Bradbury’s story is a glorification of Halloween and a journey through the origins and traditions of the festival he considers is the most important celebrated in America.

More importantly, his story is a celebration of an American nation that once existed. Just like the hopeless liberals from Prairie Home Companion on NPR who celebrate a culture that is actively being demographically overwhelmed, Bradbury’s story celebrates a people—and their unique traditions—who built the kind of communities that, as Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam laments, racial and religious diversity helps make extinct.

The opening lines of The Halloween Tree (it was made into a cartoon, (watch it here) narrated by Bradbury himself) are a celebration of the historic majority population of America:

“It was a small town by a small river and a small lake in a small northern part of a Midwest state. There wasn’t so much wilderness around that you couldn’t see the town. On the other hand, there wasn’t so much town around that you couldn’t see and feel and touch the wilderness. The town was full of fences to walk on and sidewalks to skate on and the muted cries and laughter of boys and girls full of costume dreams and pumpkin spirits, preparing for the greatest night of the year, better than Easter, better than Christmas—Halloween.”

The story celebrates Trick or Treating—that American tradition which now identifies whether or not you live in a safe community where parents feel comfortable sending their kids out into the night to collect candy from their neighbors.

Bradbury’s book was written to help young children understand the traditions and history of Halloween so that they could appreciate why they dressed up as hosts, mummies, skeletons, etc. Now, as so many communities across the nation have parents who bowl alone, having a book dedicated to extolling the virtues of Trick or Treating when the communities across America look radically different from when Bradbury wrote his book in 1972 seems like an anachronism.

How many parents live in cities where they don’t feel safe sending their kids out into the night to Trick or Treat? Well, if you are a Stuff White People Like white person living in a gentrified neighborhood in Washington DC, Atlanta, or New York, perhaps you throw exclusive parties for your children where just you and your other friends’ children (some toting Sandra Bullock-worthy accessories) gather to celebrate Halloween.

To test the true health, strength and vitality of your neighborhood (and by extension, city), ask yourself how many Trick or Treaters you get on Halloween? Are the streets full of young people dressed in fantasy costumes, walking from house to house asking for candy?

Remember, Trick or Treating is truly a celebration of community, and if the houses around you are adorned in Halloween decorations in anticipation of ghoulish revelers, you probably live in a city with an excellent school system (i.e. an almost all-white school system).

For as Putnam stated in his famous book Bowling Alone, diversity isn’t just a weakness, but a form of social cohesion suicide. As Pat Buchanan wrote in 2007

“After 30,000 interviews, Putnam concludes and reports, against his own progressive convictions, that ethnic and racial diversity can be devastating to communities and destructive of community values.

“The greater the diversity the greater the distrust, says Putnam. In racially and ethnically mixed communities, not only do people not trust strangers, they do not even trust their own kind. They withdraw into themselves, they support community activity less, they vote less.

“People living in ethnically diverse settings appear to ‘hunker down,’ that is, to pull in like a turtle,” writes Putnam.

They tend to “withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television.”

Writes columnist John Leo, “Putnam adds a crushing footnote: His findings ‘may underestimate the real effect of diversity on social withdrawal.'”

It’s a shame that Putnam hasn’t looked at Trick or Treating as the ultimate embodiment of whether or not a neighborhood is safe or not; of whether or not a city is one that young parents should invest in purchasing a house. Having the trust in your neighbors that you can safely send your children out into the night to procure treats with minimal danger is a way to qualify the true value of your home and a way to gauge the type of relationships they will be able to make.

Your real estate agent can’t divulge any racial information and demographics on your neighbors, but if you want to buy a new home then you should just watch how Halloween unfolds in the town you are considering moving into. This is a great way to test Putnam’s findings on diversity.

Recently, the local Fox affiliate out of Milwaukee reported that city has the “dubious honor of being the most segregated in America.” Mind you, this is the same city where in August scores of black people pulled white people from their cars and beat them at the Wisconsin State Fair. It’s also one of the more dangerous cities with high levels of black crime, showing that the so-called “dubious honor” is more aptly titled “common sense residential patterns for safe living.”

Hilariously, resident Black Journalism Agitator of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Eugene Kane [Email him]  wrote a column bemoaning the lack of Trick or Treating opportunities for black children in majority black neighborhoods (wait, wasn’t it diverse cities that lack social connections? Shouldn’t a homogenous black neighborhood be safe? Doesn’t that run counter to Putnam’s findings?):

“For some, the only real trick about Halloween is trying to keep it a treat for young children in bad neighborhoods.

This time of year in Milwaukee, I always think about thousands of kids who live in less-than-perfect areas of the city where drug dealing, gangbanging and handgun violence are common events.

In these neighborhoods, dressing up as a ghost or fireman and going house to house in search of candy isn’t really feasible.

Or advisable.

….

Adriane Griffin, program specialist at Northcott, said she understood the need to provide a safe trick-or-treat environment for children in the inner city.

“For some parents, they don’t know if the house they’re sending their children to is a dope house or not,” she said.

“I know I wouldn’t want my child just going up to some of these houses.”

Griffin said some neighborhoods in the African-American community were in such high-crime areas that Halloween usually went unacknowledged.

“In some parts of the community, we just don’t feel comfortable opening our doors anymore,” Griffin said. “That’s too bad.”

I started to realize how different Halloween is for inner city kids in Milwaukee a few years ago after hearing from suburbanites who wanted to know why so many black kids were showing up at their doors asking for candy.

As it turned out, a local church had been giving kids rides out to the suburbs for years so they would be safe during trick-or-treating.”

Trick-or-treat scares up fears in inner city, October 26, 2011

Who knows? Soon the Federal government—already pros at busing students to create an acceptable racial balance in schools—might decide that Trick or Treating is a sign of disparate impact, since few, if any, all-black neighborhoods are safe for black children to go out at night in. (The same goes for Hispanic children. )

Those cities with high rates of volunteerism seem to provide a window into the areas where Halloween flourishes, which might explain why neighborhoods that are majority black send their kids into majority white neighborhoods to garner treats. Zillow.com, a popular real-estate Web site, took on the task of identifying the top 20 cities for Trick or Treating and came out with an interesting list:

“We theorized that homes in more expensive neighborhoods would give out bigger, better candy. However, wealthy neighborhoods are not always the best for harvesting the most Halloween candy. For parents and kids alike, the walkability and density of a neighborhood is key to covering the most ground, in the fastest time, to collect the most candy. Safety, of course, is also a primary concern for parents on Halloween, thus adding crime data to the Index was a no-brainer.”

Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Washington DC, Chicago, Milwaukee, Phoenix and San Diego are on the list, though Zillow then breaks down the data further offering the top five neighborhoods to Trick or Treat in.

In every major city, gentrification is underway. SWPL whites have created enclaves that ward off undesirable elements from contaminating their sociological experiments. Zillow profiles the top neighborhoods in Atlanta to Trick or Treat and, trust us; these are some of the whitest areas in the city:

Top 5 Atlanta Neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in 2010

  1. Virginia Highland
  2. Morningside / Lenox Park
  3. Inman Park
  4. Brookhaven
  5. Garden Hills

Odd that the Atlanta neighborhoods labeled the most dangerous in America recently aren’t environs profiled by Zillow as highly conducive locals for collecting candy.

The 2011 list of top cities to Trick or Treat in from Zillow has selected San Francisco as the top place for children to collect candy. But looking further at the data, the top candy neighborhoods are virtually all-white, with Presidio Heights leading the list.

Remember those Flickr Maps that showed how segregated American cities really are? According to Business Insider’s list of the Top 22 most segregated cities in America, nearly three-quarters ’s of Zillow’s best cities to Trick or Treat are those with a distinct and clear racial divide.

Breaking down the data, none of the top neighborhoods for Trick or Treating in Zillow’s Top 20 list are in areas of these cities that are majority non-white.he best places to Trick or Treat in America are in neighborhoods that still reflect the values, culture, and racial composition of the one that Ray Bradbury wrote about in The Halloween Tree.

To paraphrase Eugene Kane, with the demographic tsunami overwhelmingly the traditional American majority population (capsizing it by 2040), this is kind of scary for those who desire seeing the tradition of trick or treating—the hallmark of an actual vibrant, safe, and connected community—endure. If it can’t even transpire in majority black communities now, what hope does Trick or Treating have to continue when America continues to import another Third World population into its midst?

Who knows? “That small town, by a small river and a small lake” that Bradbury canonized in The Halloween Tree might, in 2025 America, be a hidden all-white town like the one in M. Night Shyamalan’ s 2004 film The Village—the movie where white families erect a city to escape high rates of crime and violence so they can  live peacefully. Sounds like the suburbs of most major cities, doesn’t it?

In this type of town, the tradition of Halloween and the true test of strength for a community—trick or treating—can long endure.

Do They Know Its Halloween in Prince George’s County?

You won’t see this in all-Black cities

Check out VDARE for a huge article on Diversity and Trick-or-Treating that I wrote. Understand that Robert Putnam’s study (which shows a correlation between more ethnic diversity driving down community trust) underestimates the impact of diversity, because homogeneous Black enclaves are deficient in trust.

Across the nation, Black children who reside in Black Undertow cities and counties are bused into all-white enclaves to Trick-or-Treat in safe environments, where parents do not neglect nor rely on the state to rear their children.
Thus, Putnam’s study needs a caveat: homogeneous Black communities run counter to Putnam’s findings that diversity destroys the social fabric of a city; the greater the percentage of Black people in a municipality, the more atomized and unsafe the environment.
The Washington Post has just published findings that the all-white enclave is a thing of the past, inadvertently putting the final nail in the coffin of Trick-or-Treating:

Today their Silver Spring community of Hillandale is home to people of every race and ethnicity — the epitome of what one sociologist calls “global neighborhoods” that are upending long-standing patterns of residential segregation.

Around the region and across the country, the archetypal all-white neighborhood is vanishing with remarkable speed. In many places, the phenomenon is not being driven by African Americans moving to the suburbs. Instead, it is primarily the result of the nation’s soaring number of Hispanics and Asians, many of whom are immigrants.

The result has been the emergence of neighborhoods, from San Diego to Denver to Miami, that are more diverse than at any time in American history.

As the nation barrels toward the day, just three decades from now, when non-Hispanic whites are expected to be a minority, these global neighborhoods have already begun remaking the American social fabric in significant ways. Their creation and impact have been especially pronounced in the Washington area, where minorities are now the majority.

A Washington Post analysis of 2010 Census data shows a precipitous decline in the number of the region’s census tracts, areas of roughly 2,000 households, where more than 85 percent of the residents are of the same race or ethnicity — what many demographers would consider a segregated neighborhood.

In the District, just one in three neighborhoods is highly segregated, the Post analysis found. A decade ago, more than half were.

So what happens to those communities that are classified as Black enclaves? Well, Black kids vying for initiation into gangs and high levels of Black crime make Trick-or-Treating (and the ability to create lasting relationship and build communities) an impossibility.

Majority Black cities across the country rely on the generosity of non-profit organization and church organizations to bus their children into all-white enclaves for safe Trick-or-Treating. In the “bad” (read Black parts) of Jacksonville, attempts have been made to make the Halloween tradition safe.
Doesn’t this run counter to Putnam’s study, that the more homogeneous the community the greater the trust? All-white enclaves don’t require such programs, but all-Black cities do.
Which brings us to Prince George’s County, that all-Black enclave that his home to some of the highest foreclosure rates (and a horrible school system and high crime rate) that The Washington Post featured as an aberration in the increasingly diverse world.
Why? Because non-Black people don’t want to live there; it isn’t safe:

From Loudoun to Fairfax to Montgomery, communities that are growing are also growing more integrated, with people of every race and ethnicity living side by side. Prince George’s stands virtually alone as a place that is gaining population yet has an increasing number of residents living in neighborhoods that are overwhelmingly one race — in this case, African American. 

A Washington Post analysis of census data shows that the number of Prince George’s neighborhoods where more than 85 percent of residents are the same race or ethnicity — what demographers consider a high level of segregation — has inched up, from 25 percent in 1990 to 27 percent last year. 

Though the increase is small, any uptick is startling in comparison with everywhere else in the region. While the all-white neighborhood has all but disappeared from Northern Virginia, Montgomery and the District, the all-black neighborhood is on the rise in Prince George’s.
Yet the Prince George’s experience also illustrates the limits of integration. Most blacks and whites still live in separate neighborhoods, despite the dismantling of legal segregation decades ago.

Today, integration has moved beyond black and white. Integrated neighborhoods often are created when Asians and Hispanics move into predominantly white neighborhoods, said John Logan, a Brown University sociologist who has studied segregation patterns for 30 years. He says these “global neighborhoods” pave the way for more blacks to move into a community without triggering white flight.

In the Washington region, 90 percent of whites still live in neighborhoods where they are a majority or the largest group. Many whites remain unwilling to buy houses in black neighborhoods, Logan said, and so are most Asians. 

“It’s going to be a long, long time before that disappears,” he said.

White exodus
 
Some whites with deep roots in Prince George’s say they sense that the white exodus from the county is largely over and that Hispanics have helped make the county feel more diverse than ever.

Maryland state Del. Justin D. Ross (D) and his wife are raising four young children in Hyattsville, not far from the University of Maryland in an area that has long attracted a mix of people. His two oldest children attend University Park Elementary School, where the student body is 30 percent black, 30 percent Hispanic, 26 percent white and 8 percent Asian.

“We’re giving [our children] a competitive advantage in a real world that will look much different than the one my parents grew up in,” said Ross, 35, who is white and grew up in Prince George’s.

But most white longtime residents have friends and neighbors who have left the county and made little secret of why, said several who met on a recent afternoon to discuss white flight and diversity.

“A lot of white people don’t want to live around black people. It’s crazy, I know,” said John Petro, a developer who lives in a predominantly black subdivision in Bowie and has no intention of moving away. 

“They don’t always say ‘black,’ ” said Jane Eagen Dodd, a retired schoolteacher who lives in an Upper Marlboro community with a rich mix of people from different backgrounds. “They say, ‘The county is changing.’ ”

It’s crazy? Hmm… in virtually every major city in America that has a high population of Black people, nearly all-white suburbs have been created. It would be crazy if it were only one city; that it is EVERY city where Black and white people interact that has seen an exodus of the latter (with the former then in charge of a city that they inevitably see collapse) means it is definitely NOT CRAZY!

So what is Trick-or-Treating like in Prince George’s County, where crime is a huge problem (thus, disproving Putnam’s study on how communities that are homogeneous are much better than the diverse cities)?

How many of the kids in Prince George’s County are bused into the dwindling few all-white enclaves around D.C.?

The Washington Post can brag about Prince George’s County offering Black people a chance to be around “Black role models” while gloating about the end of all-white enclaves.  But where will Black kids be able to Trick-or-Treat when these all-white enclaves disappear?

Halloween is the one night of the year where an entire community leaves their homes and interacts with each other. Interesting that Putnam’s study on how racial diversity erodes community trust needs a caveat: the greater the percentage of Black people in a community (even if it is an all-Black enclave), the less the community trust.

WE ARE NOT THE SAME!!!!!

Black and Latino Males Must Leave White nations across the Earth, return home while we still let you! This also goes for you mongoloids, although you do not murder whites at the same rates as blacks and Latinos, it does not mean you will continue to behave once your numbers are high enough, so you got to go as well!

14 year old stabbed to death by black male.

From ABC Chicago…

Police say the reward has been increased for information in the stabbing death of a 14-year-old in southwest suburban Indian Head Park.

As of Sunday afternoon, a $30,500 reward was being offered for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Kelli O’Laughlin, according to the Village of Indian Head Park website. On Saturday, an anonymous resident added $10,000 to the reward.

Police have also set up a tip line at 708-246-4534.

Despite some reports, police say there is no one in custody.

On Saturday afternoon, authorities confirmed that a man questioned following the slaying of the 14-year-old is being held on a warrant in connection with a separate burglary spree that happened over the summer in the southwestern suburb. While some reports claim the suspect is under investigation in connection with the teen’s slaying, Indian Head Police Chief Frank Alonzo tells ABC7 they’re unrelated.

“There is somebody in custody but it’s for a different incident,” Alonzo said.

Detectives from the south suburban Major Crimes Task Force joined the investigation as police released a sketch of a man seen walking near the area after the murder. They want to question him. Investigators were circulating copies of the sketch Friday night to drivers in the area. They also released pictures of gold coins that are similar to the ones that are now missing from the victim’s home.

 

Racially motivated murder by illegal immigrant.

Three illegal aliens approached a 45 year old white female in the parking lot of a Walmart and one of them decided to stab her to death for the fun of it. The media is calling it a “random act.”

From TheDailyNews.com

An illegal alien from Honduras was charged with murder for the vicious stabbing death of a shopper in the Wal-Mart parking lot Sunday night, a murder that appeared to be a random act, Orleans County Sheriff Scott Hess said.

Luis A. Rodriguez-Flamenco was arrested after an all-night search by numerous police agencies. He was arraigned in Town Court and committed to Orleans County Jail without bail.

Flamenco, 24, is accused of repeatedly stabbing Kathleen I. Byham, 45.

Byham was shopping alone and had just left the store when she was approached by three men as she got to her car about 7 p.m.

‘‘She suffered multiple stab wounds to the torso,’’ Hess said. ‘‘She was shopping by herself and was not with any of the three men.’’

Byham, of Albion, was transported to Medina Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 7:40 p.m.

Several people witnessed the attack and were able to give police a description of the men, who took off running east toward the village of Albion.

Two of the men were caught in separate homes in the village, about 90 minutes after the attack, Hess said.

‘‘We were able to locate them based on information we received,’’ he said.

The two men who were with Flamenco did not actively participate in the murder have not been charged. Hess said the two are illegal immigrants from Mexico and both have been turned over to U.S. Border Patrol.

 

 

 

The New Right and What It Can Offer the Rest of the World

The New Right and What It Can Offer the Rest of the World

http://www.alternativeright.com/main/blogs/untimely-observations/the-new-right-and-what-it-can-offer-the-rest-of-the-world/

The term Nationalism—as it is known outside of the West—is mostly synonymous with the anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist sentiments of the 19th and 20th century, that is to say Nationalism from the perspective of an Asian, African, Middle Easterner or Latin American is not merely an affirmation of ethnic and cultural identity, but also the rejection of White colonial or imperial authority, and to a certain degree, white culture.

However, there is also a paradox involved in the sense that the development of modern economic, technological and, to a lesser extent, political institutions are also synonymous with the concept of Westernization. For if truth be told, the White/Western World invented most of what people would now call modernity. In other words, the White/Western World was the template for what the rest of the world wanted to be, despite negative attitudes to Western projections of power.

So when white people created modern society, the rest of the world wanted copies of those societies for themselves. When white people embrace “Democracy,” the rest of the World sort of embraced “Democracy.” When white people created the internet, cars, and the bourgeois lifestyle, the rest of the world also adopted the internet, cars, and the bourgeois lifestyle. And when white people embraced multiculturalism and mass immigration, the rest of the world em . . . eh . . . we’re still deliberating that one.

So Nationalism in the traditional sense of the word, as perceived by a person of a non-western background, like myself, is something which is intertwined with both the rejection of the West, and the paradoxical imitation of the intellectual and technological achievements of the West.

I call this the “Go Home Yankee, And Take Me With You” Syndrome.

Now, there are many accounts on how this particular phrase developed here in the Philippines, but the most common among them was that back in the nineties, one of the protesters of Uncle Sam’s foreign policy was holding up a sign that said, “Go Home Yankee and Take Me With You.” And though it was taken to be a joke, it’s implications are much more serious than what some people think.

Of course, the Philippines is not the only country to have this kind of mentality. This type of intellectual dissociation exists among different nations all over the world, particularly in relation to the Western World. What this means, in my estimations, is that the concept of nationalism, which most non-white nations still adhere to, is largely outdated and is incapable of meeting challenges that the intellectual and economic proponents of globalism and modern soft-marxist liberalism put forth.

So what I am saying is that what is happening in the West (e.g. Hate Crime Legislation, Political Correctness, Deindustrialization, Mass Immigration and Multiculturalism) is a prelude to what may happen to the rest of the world. Already there are small indications that the rest of the world may also end up following the same path as the Western World if present trends continue.

The value of the New Right in both the US as well as in Europe is that it offers a serious intellectual critique of the modern zeitgeist which goes beyond the post-nationalist paradigm. So even if the goal of these movements is the preservation of the white race, the restoration of national sovereignity in Western Nations and an intellectual revolt against the established intellectual dogma, it also offers the intellectual template for many non-white nations to resist the globalist agenda, and to offer new ideas in relation to government and society.

And there is a need for such a template. Most non-white opposition to the international establishment is framed in the context anti-globalization, cultural and linguistic preservation, environmental protection, opposition to economic exploitation or simply, opposition to neo-liberalism. However, this opposition is expressed in a much different context than the traditional left/right dichotomy found in Western nations. For one thing, the metapolitical and historical narrative of the rest of the world is radically different from that of the West.

Despite these differences however, most of non-white opposition to ideas of the internationalist/globalist left lack the sophistication and complexity of New Right thinkers as well as their predecessors. That is not to say that there are no non-white thinkers who have put a lot of time or effort in opposing the Internationalist aspirations of the world’s various political, economic and intellectual elites.

However, what the New Right can offer is a different set of perspectives and alternatives. For even though identifying problems are easy, the New Right in the West is on ground zero of the globalist/internationalist project, and therefore have had more time forming their metapolitical and ideological solutions.

At this time, it’s impossible to tell just how many non-whites throughout the rest of world are aware of the ideas and positions of people like, Alain De Benoist, Tomislav Sunic, Joe Sobran, Pat Buchanan, Paul Gottfried, Alexander Dugin, etc . . . So even though a certain degree of commonality exists, the problem remains that people in the rest of the world are not aware of the existence of the New Right.

This problem – as I percieve it – is largely because the New Right in the West expresses itself in terms of pursuing and defending the rights of white and western nations. This is, of course, a good thing. However, unlike the Right, the Left (and this includes those the global capitalist Left) express themselves not in terms of any single group’s interests, but of humanity as a whole. And although the Left has had a terrible record in representing humanity’s interests, the fact remains that the Right is typically lacks an the percieved openess of their opponents. One need not look farther than the rhetoric of the Occupy Wallstreet Protests.

So now the question is how can the ideas of the New Right be shared with the rest of the world?

In my view, there are certain prerequisites which have to be in place before Non-White Nationalists can begin adopting New Right ideas into the context of their respective nations.

First, there needs to be organization. Historically speaking, anti-colonial revolution has been organized by an intellectual elite which expressed and translate Western Nationalist (and Enlightenment) Ideas into the context of their own respective nations and peoples. So in order for non-whites to adopt the metapolitical discourse of the New Right, a receptive intellectual community from non-white countries must first be found and organized.

Second, there needs to be an incentive for Non-whites to adopt New Right Ideas. A good example of this would be to present political economic systems which can act as an alternative to the old capitalist/socialist dichotomy. I am confident that economic systems commonly associated with the right, such as Distributism, Productionism, Social Credit and Localized Economics, will be quite welcome to the rest of the world, and not just in the US and Europe.

Distributism, for example, may have its limitations as a practical economic system in industrialized societies, but it can be reasonably adapted to the needs of third world nations, most of which are still agrarian or semi-agrarian. If packaged correctly, the political economic ideas of people like, Hillaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterson, could be used as a way to introduce other New Right thinkers to the rest of the world.

Third,  there needs to be a paradigm shift wherein Non-whites will recognize that the existing zeitgeist is not about a powerful country oppressing smaller and poor countries, but about powerful elites in one country working with receptive powerful elites in another country to pursue policies which are designed to exploit their respective nations.

The same may also be said among those who advocate white preservation in Western nations. The average peasant in Guatemala, India or the Philippines does not desire the destruction or the extermination of Western Nations. I would even hazzard to guess that some of them will oppose it.

At the moment, there are still a lot of people throughout the world who believe that Western Governments are engaging in wars as well as unfair economic and diplomatic practices on behalf of White/Western peoples. For those who are familiar with the problems faced in the West, that is obviously untrue.

Fourth, in order for Non-whites who adopt these ideas to make an impact, they need to be a visible and recognizable group with the potential to influence public discourse. And it doesn’t matter how the media will spin this type of news. As long as people recognize that there are non-whites throughout the world who are willing to adopt New Right ideas, it can cause a lot of people to rethink certain positions.

So having said all that, the ideas of the new-right being dessiminated to the rest of the world offers many possible implications:

Leftist Identity Will Be Put Into Crisis—What we have to remember about the left is that it draws its identity partly upon designated victim groups (e.g. women, homosexuals, minorities, labor advocates, environmental issues, etc . . . ). So if a significant and visible group of non-whites throughout the world were to adopt ideas which are rooted from authors and thinkers from “extremist right wing” groups in the west, it will force the leftists to reevaluate their ideological clientele in a way which can have serious and far reaching changes in their ideology.

The Establishment Will Be Forced to Attack Non-Whites Who Adopt New Right Ideas—I’m sure that some people have heard the terms Twinkie and Oreo, both of which are perjoratives used specifically to demonize a person of Asian or African ethnicity (respectively) adopting perceived conservative, right-wing, pro-white or pro-western positions. If the ideas of the New Right were to become popular in non-white nations, the Western mainstream media will be forced to think up ways to demonize these kinds of non-whites.

Non-White Mass Immigration Will Be Put Into A New Context—This is where it gets a little tricky. Obviously, most of the people who immigrate into the West do so, because they want better jobs and a better life, consequences be damned. If they announce their love for the “old country,” it’s typically in a very superficial way. After all, they didn’t love their country enough to stay in it.

If cultural, ethnic and racial preservation becomes adopted in unbiased way, and if non-whites recognize certain facts about the goals and incentives which drive global capitalism and neo-liberalism, they will also need to recognize that mass immigration into Western Nations as something to be opposed in principle. Such a recognition can potentially cause friction among non-whites whose sensibilities are more favorable to Leftist internationalism and non-whites who are geniunely nationalistic.

The Adoption of New Right Ideas Will Give Legitimacy to the New Right Movement in the West—For quite a long time now, right wing movements in the west—in whatever form they take—are portrayed as hate-filled reactionaries. So it goes without saying that if non-whites were to adopt the ideas of the New Right, they will give their white counterparts a certain degree of legitimacy, not to mention devalue the misconception that Right wing movements in the West are inherently anti-non-white.

New Economic Systems—The ideas of Distributism, Social Credit, Productionism and other Third Postition Economic ideas can potentially offer solutions to the poverty of the Third World. Of course, getting tangible results will take a while, but what matters here is the perception that the New Right offers ideas which are potentially beneficial to the rest of the world.

There are other implications, but I will leave that for people to ponder, but as the old concept of nationalism (e.g. economic independence, anti-colonialism, nativism) is replaced by post-nationalist globalism, a new form of nationalism will become necessary, one which needs to be rooted in ideas which transcend the old left-right divide, and which offers actual independence of culture and of mind, as opposed to the negative identities used by old forms of nationalism, many of which were based on enlightenment ideals.

And this is what I like about the New Right. It is an attempt to change the cultural and moral landscape  as a means of reinvigorating national and ethnic identity. So in my opinion the intellectual revolt of the New Right in the US and in Europe can act as prelude for the rest of the world to rethink itself in relation to modernity and the post-post-colonial world.

So do the various Right-Wing movements in the West have something beneficial to offer to the rest of the World?

In my opinion, they have a lot to offer. And although there may be the lack of a common cause, every true nationalist throughout the world, regardless of his or her background, has common interests to promote a new and radical form of universal nationalism. After all, the Left had been spreading its ideas for centuries now. It’s about time the Right did the same.

Is Europe Waking Up?

Is Europe Waking Up?

Is it finally happening? Are the nations of Europe finally realizing, at the eleventh hour, that they simply cannot allow Europe to become swamped with Third Worlders and Muslims?

The left-wing Guardian newspaper reports that: “France and Italy have thrown down the gauntlet over Europe’s system of passport-free travel, saying a crisis of immigration sparked by the Arab spring was calling into question the borderless regime enjoyed by more than 400 million people in 25 countries. Challenging one of the biggest achievements of European integration of recent decades, Nicolas Sarkozy and Silvio Berlusconi also launched a joint effort to stem immigration and demanded European deportation pacts with the countries of revolutionary north Africa to send new arrivals packing.”

In view of the present condition of both Italy and France, especially the latter, it’s about time somebody came to their senses.

The article notes “The French president and the Italian prime minister, at a summit in Rome, opted to pile the pressure on Brussels and the governments of the other 25 EU states, demanding an in-depth revision of European law regulating the passport-free travel that takes in almost all of the EU with the exception of Britain and Ireland.”

How long will this “in-depth revision” take? How many more millions of swarthy foreigners will pour into Europe while it is being carried out? And most important of all, what, if anything, will be done about the millions of non-assimilable Third World immigrants who are already in European countries?

The article continues “Prompted by the influx to Italy of almost 30,000 immigrants, mainly from Tunisia, in recent months, the two leaders warned that the upheavals in north Africa could swiftly become an out-and-out crisis capable of undermining the trust our fellow citizens place in the free circulation within the Schengen area. The passport-free travel system known as the Schengen regime was agreed by a handful of countries in 1985 and put into practice in 1995. Since then it has been embraced by 22 EU countries as well as Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, but spurned by Britain and Ireland. It is widely seen, along with the euro single currency, as Europe’s signature unification project of recent decades.”

Both of these unification projects need to be deep-sixed. The euro is dragging the few stable and productive economies down with the least stable. While open immigration threatens to destroy Europe for all time.

White Europeans are finally making the connection in their minds between the rising crime, unemployment and filth all around them and all those swarthy foreigners they see on the street.

Cleaning up Europe and restoring its homogeneity will be no easy task. There are sinister forces that are determined to shove more non-Whites into Europe to benefit the more left-wing parties. Lunatic leftists have been brainwashed to think Diversity is some sacred cow that they must all worship. Diversity however is an abomination, that needs to be defeated.

World Population Hits 7 Billion; White Nations at Risk of Extinction

World Population Hits 7 Billion; White Nations at Risk of Extinction

by James Buchanan

The population of the world just reached 7 billion. The Guardian newspaper reports: “The United Nations will warn this week that the world’s population could more than double to 15 billion by the end of this century, putting a catastrophic strain on the planet’s resources unless urgent action is taken to curb growth rates.”

“That figure is likely to shock many experts as it is far higher than many current estimates. A previous UN estimate had expected the world to have more than 10 billion people by 2100… The new figure is contained in a landmark study by the United Nations Population Fund (Unfpa) that will be released this week. The report –The State of World Population 2011 – is being compiled to mark the expected moment this month when somewhere on Earth a person will be born who will take the current world population over the 7 billion mark, and will be released simultaneously in cities across the globe.”

It should be noted that White people are capable of slowing down their population growth without starvation or plagues while the rest of the world apparently cannot. White people also respect environmental laws while Chinese manufacturers seem inclined to coat everything with lead paint.

Most White people will not have children unless they have some success in their lives that gives them hope that they will be able to afford to raise children. This has led to a negative population growth in many White nations because liberals keep flooding White nations with Third World people. This has created a destructive feedback loop in which White people keep having less children due in large part to the problems and taxes that come from invaders from the Third World. Liberal politicians then ignore all these problems and bring in even more illegal aliens, making all these problems worse and further reducing the White birth rate.

The Guardian notes “The Earth has now doubled in population since the 1960s, boosted by high birthrates in Africa, Asia and Latin America as the spread of medicine and better healthcare has seen the mortality rate for young children decline.”

All demographic changes since the 1960s have been a disaster for the White race. We’ve gone from being 90 percent of the US in 1960 to just 66 percent today in the space of two generations. The nations of western Europe have gone from 100 percent White to similar race-mixed proportions, thanks to the efforts of liberals and Zionists, who have been the biggest supporters of non-White immigration into White nations.

White people need to wake up to this problem and fight it. We no longer have the luxury of ignoring it. Just look at the state of California with its non-White majority and its huge illegal alien population. White tax-payers are being burdened to the breaking point with ever-increasing taxes and fees to pay for all the non-Whites.

As recently as the 1980s, students attending the UC (University of California) system only had to pay token tuition fees because the tax revenue from the “Golden State” was more than enough to supply quality higher education for the children of California. Over the last three decades, the tax burden from millions of Third World poor has wiped out the California budget. The previously almost-free UC system now charges almost as much tuition as private colleges. The liberals running the UC school system have allowed in more and more Asians, Arabs and even illegal aliens.

The state government of California mercilessly punishes businesses with increasing taxes and regulations, driving many businesses out of the state. A non-White majority has meant higher taxes, less government services for Whites (like a subsidized university system), hopelessly crowded freeways and a prison system so over-crowded that the courts are ordering a mass release.

All White people should be 100 percent aware that a non-White invasion means life will become much worse for them and their children. If we want to recover the prosperity of the 1960s, we need to change the demographics of America and Europe back to the same demographics as the 1960s, which would be a much more White population.

Free Trade Or Fair Trade?

Free Trade Or Fair Trade?

20 Reasons Why All Americans

Should Be Against

The Insane Trade Policies

Of The Globalists

theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/free-trade-or-fair-trade-20-reasons-why-all-americans-should-be-against-the-insane-trade-policies-of-the-globalists

It is absolutely amazing how many Americans are still convinced that more “free trade” is the answer to our economic problems.  The truth is that there is a vast difference between “free trade” and “fair trade”, and in this article I will prove that all true conservatives and all true liberals should be completely against the insane trade policies of the federal government.  Yes, we will always need to trade with other nations.  Other nations make or have things that we need to trade for.  Balanced trade relationships with other nations that have similar economies and that share similar values can be very beneficial.  For example, our trading relationship with Canada, though not perfect, is generally beneficial to both sides.  However, the United States also has dozens of trading relationships that are highly destructive to the U.S. economy.  There are some predatory nations that are blatantly and openly cheating and everyone can see it.  They are getting away with bloody murder and they are robbing us blind.  The United States of America is being taken advantage of, and as a result thousands of good businesses are being destroyed and millions of good jobs are being lost.  If you are an American and you are in favor of all of the unfair trade that is currently going on, then either you don’t know much about economics or you actually want to see the U.S. economy be destroyed.

Congress has just passed new free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.  The Obama administration has also made “the NAFTA of the Pacific” a very high priority.

Obama says that all of these new trade pacts will create more U.S. jobs.

Well, either Barack Obama is completely ignorant when it comes to economics or else he is lying.

When we merge our economy with the economies of nations where wages are much lower, it is inevitable that large numbers of jobs are going to leave the high wage areas (where we live) and go to areas where wages are much lower.

It also certainly does not help that we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world, that we burden our businesses with mountains of ridiculous regulations,  and that we allow our “trade partners” to give their businesses a huge advantage by openly subsidizing them.

The way that the system is set up now, nearly all U.S. businesses are at a massive, massive disadvantage.  In general, the only businesses that can compete effectively in this environment are the giant corporations that can offshore huge portions of their operations.

If you are a conservative, then there is no way that you should support our current trade policies.  If you are a liberal, then there is no way that you should support our current trade policies.

However, if you are a “George W. Bush Republican” or a “Clinton/Obama Democrat” that believes in globalism and the establishment of a one world economy as part of a “New World Order”, then it would make sense why you would want to see America deindustrialized and brought down to the level of the rest of the world.

But if you are a true conservative or a true liberal, then the following are reasons why you should be horrified by our current trade policies….

#1 Other Nations Openly Manipulate Their Currencies In Order To Gain A Significant Competitive Advantage

For example, China keeps its currency set at a super low level relative to the U.S. dollar.  By doing this, their products are far cheaper than U.S. products, and U.S. businesses cannot compete with them.  This has resulted in the death of large numbers of U.S. businesses and the loss of millions of U.S. jobs.

So just how bad is this problem?  Well, a recent CNN article stated the following….

Critics of China’s policy estimate that the yuan is still undervalued by 25% to 40%, even with the recent rises in value.

The other day the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would impose tariffs on currency manipulators, and China has already retaliated, even though the bill has not become law yet and even though it almost certainly won’t.

China plays hardball.  They love the advantage that they are getting right now and they do not plan on losing it.

#2 Millions Of Good Paying Jobs Have Been Shipped Overseas And They Are Never Coming Back

Our politicians all try to tell us how good they are at creating jobs.

But what is the truth?

The truth is that a total of zero jobs were created last decade.  The following is a quote from a recent article in Washington Monthly….

“If any single number captures the state of the American economy over the last decade, it is zero. That was the net gain in jobs between 1999 and 2009—nada, nil, zip. By painful contrast, from the 1940s through the 1990s, recessions came and went, but no decade ended without at least a 20 percent increase in the number of jobs.”

Last decade we opened up our trade with the rest of the world more than ever before.  But instead of creating jobs it destroyed them.  Our trade deficits exploded and unemployment skyrocketed.

The Economic Policy Institute says that since 2001 America has lost approximately 2.8 million jobs due to our trade deficit with China alone.

So if you are unemployed, that is probably what happened to the job you are supposed to have.

It went overseas and it is not coming back.

#3 America Is Being Deindustrialized At A Blistering Pace Thanks To Globalism

The advocates of “free trade” cannot dispute the cold, hard facts….

*The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

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

*If you can believe it, more than 42,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been closed down since 2001.

*Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.

*Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.

#4 (For Conservatives) True Conservatives Should Be Horrified That We Are Being Taken Advantage Of By A Hardcore Communist Nation That Hates Us

Ronald Reagan would have never engaged in “free trade” with the Soviet Union.  The Communist Party is in complete control of China and while we may regard China as a “frenemy”, they really do believe that they will totally defeat us someday.  If you doubt this, just read what the top generals and politicians in China are writing.

It is so incredibly stupid what we are doing.  Our trade relationship with China has enabled the largest communist economy in the world to go from third world status to superpower status.  China is now the second largest economy in the world, and that would have never happened without our help.

A lot of people like to talk about how “capitalist” China is becoming, but the truth is that they have never wavered from their pure belief in communism.  7 of the 10 largest corporations in China are owned by the government.

A host of other corporations in China are very deeply subsidized by the government.

U.S. businesses have a very hard time competing with foreign businesses that are deeply subsidized by their own national governments.

It is called cheating, and we let other countries get away with it.

So our businesses die and their products fill up our store shelves.

#5 We Are Endangering Our National Security By Greatly Enriching Our Biggest Potential Enemies

The biggest threats to the United States are not some goat herders hiding out in the caves of Afghanistan.

The biggest threats to the United States are actually China and Russia.

Conservatives are supposed to be the ones that are so concerned about national security.  But instead of expressing concerns about China, they just keep pushing for more free trade.

As a result, China has been able to become a true global military superpower.

Someday we will deeply, deeply regret that.

#6 China Brazenly Steals Technology From Anyone And Everyone That They Can

China gets away with bloody murder when it comes to stealing technology.  They will do it “legally” if they can, and they will do it in “other ways” if they have to.

At this point, China has invented a whole host of ways to extract technology from any firms that wants to do business in China.

The following is a short excerpt from a recent article on CNN….

Foreign companies are often required to set-up joint ventures with Chinese firms before the can start doing business there. And China is instituting new “indigenous innovation” rules that U.S. companies say force them to transfer their own technology to their Chinese partners.

#7 We Should Never Trade With Any Nation That Has A “One Child” Policy

China has a very strict “one child policy” which should be absolutely abhorrent to all Americans.

Most Americans have no idea what is really going on over in China.  The following is from a recent article in the Epoch Times….

Pregnant women lacking birth permits are hunted down like criminals by population planning police in China and forcibly aborted.

All over China, mobile abortion vans are used to help enforce the one child policy.  What women in China must endure is absolutely sickening, and this kind of behavior should never be accepted in the global community.

But instead of penalizing China, we reward them for this behavior.  They even get awards at the United Nations for it.

Look, conservatives are supposed to be pro-life.  If you are a social conservative, then it goes against everything that you believe to support trade with China.

You can support trade with China if you want, but then don’t even try to call yourself “pro-life” again.

We should never trade with any nation that has a “one child policy”.  Such a policy is against everything that America is supposed to stand for.

#8 Our Horrendous Trade Imbalance Has Allowed Other Nations To Accumulate Gigantic Amounts Of Our Debt

Every month, we send much more money to the rest of the world than they send to us.  One thing that those other nations are doing with all of that money is that they are buying up our debt.

Our trade deficit with China has enabled them to accumulate nearly a trillion dollars of our debt.  This gives them tremendous leverage over us and is a very serious threat to our economy and to our national security.

So now China can threaten the stability of our financial system with just a phone call.

#9 Globalist Trade Institutions Are A Serious Threat To Our National Sovereignty

Today, the “global economy” is governed by globalist institutions such as the G20, the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank.  The United States has given up huge amounts of national sovereignty to these organizations.

If you are a true conservative, this should greatly disturb you.

We don’t want faceless international bureaucrats telling us what our trade policies will be.  But to a large degree that is the situation that we have gotten ourselves into.

#10 Liberals (And All Americans) Are Supposed To Care About What Is Best For American Workers

Millions of working class jobs have been shipped overseas, and yet Barack Obama just keeps pushing for more “free trade” agreements which will make the problem even worse.

But instead of screaming bloody murder, liberals keep on supporting Obama.

It’s disgusting.

The truth is that the Obama administration actually says that there are certain kinds of jobs that we “don’t want” in the United States.

For example, the following is what U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk recently told Tim Robertson of the Huffington Post about the Obama administration’s attitude toward keeping manufacturing jobs in America….

Let’s increase our competitiveness… the reality is about half of our imports, our trade deficit is because of how much oil [we import], so you take that out of the equation, you look at what percentage of it are things that frankly, we don’t want to make in America, you know, cheaper products, low-skill jobs that frankly college kids that are graduating from, you know, UC Cal and Hastings [don’t want], but what we do want is to capture those next generation jobs and build on our investments in our young people, our education infrastructure.

So where is the outrage?

Is anyone even awake out there?

Even the construction of many of our roads and bridges is being outsourced to China.  Just check out the following quote from a recent ABC News article….

In New York there is a $400 million renovation project on the Alexander Hamilton Bridge.

In California, there is a $7.2 billion project to rebuild the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland.

In Alaska, there is a proposal for a $190 million bridge project.

These projects sound like steps in the right direction, but much of the work is going to Chinese government-owned firms.

“When we subsidize jobs in China, we’re not creating any wealth in the United States,” said Scott Paul, executive director for the Alliance for American Manufacturing.

Liberals are supposed to be working to defend the working class.

So why won’t they openly go after Obama on these issues?

Our unfair trade agreements have put American workers in direct competition for jobs with the cheapest labor on the globe.

Until this is fixed, you will continue to hear a “great sucking sound” as millions of jobs continue to leave the United States and go to places where labor is ten to twenty times cheaper.

It is insanity what we are doing.  We allow big corporations to send their manufacturing offshore and also to ship their products back into the United States for free.

Where in that equation is good news for the American worker?

#11 Liberals (And All Americans) Should Be Horrified By The Exploitation Of Slave Labor Around The Globe

All over the globe, workers toil in nightmarish conditions for slave labor pay just so that Americans can feed their addiction for cheap foreign products.

Big corporations and collectivist governments such as China are getting unbelievably rich by exploiting this slave labor pool.

Get educated about this and find out the truth.  It just might totally change the way that you view “free trade”.

#12 Liberals (And All Americans) Should Be Horrified By The Damage To The Environment Our Trade Relationships Cause

Liberals are supposed to deeply care about the environment.  But our trade relationship with nations on the other side of the globe result in thousands of factories and businesses leaving our shores and ending up in countries where the environmental regulations are not nearly as strict.  In fact, nations such as China are a complete and total environmental nightmare at this point.  If liberals truly cared about the environment they would want to keep factories and businesses here.

#13 Very Dangerous Products Continue To Flood Into This Country From Overseas

Isn’t product safety supposed to be a big thing for liberals?  Today, a huge percentage of the products we buy are made outside the United States far from the watchful eyes of our regulatory agencies.  Over the past couple of years, there has been headline after headline about dangerous products made in China.  The following is just one example of this: 10 Babies Die Mysteriously At Fort Bragg: Toxic Drywall From China Used In Base Homes The Culprit?

#14 The Globalization Of The Economy Causes Income Inequality To Grow

By paying slave labor wages to workers overseas, the big corporations are becoming very wealthy.  At the same time, that means that there are much fewer jobs for average working class Americans, and wages for the jobs that remain are pushed down because of increased competition for jobs.

So the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

If you don’t believe that income inequality in the United States has become a huge problem, just check out this chart.

#15 Because Of All Of The Cheating And All Of The Predatory Behavior That Is Going On, Our Trade Relationships Have Become Incredibly Imbalanced

Today, the United States spends about 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.

So how is that even close to “fair”?

Our store shelves are absolutely packed with stuff from China.

In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China was “scrap and trash”.

Even in high technology products we are being destroyed.  In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in “advanced technology products” of $16 billion with the rest of the world.  In 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.

#16 Our Gigantic Trade Deficit Is Destroying Our National Wealth

The United States has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976, and since that time the United States has run a total trade deficit of more than 7.5 trillion dollars with the rest of the world.

Our gigantic trade deficits are making us poorer as a nation each and every month.  Each year, somewhere around half a trillion dollars of our national wealth gets transferred out of the United States.  That half a trillion dollars could be going to support U.S. businesses and U.S. jobs.  Taxes could be paid on that half a trillion dollars.  But instead it leaves the country and makes other nations wealthier.

#17 The Globalization Of The Economy Has Caused Unemployment In The United States To Explode

If you gathered together all of the workers that are “officially” unemployed in the United States today, they would constitute the 68th largest country in the world.

#18 As Our Cities Are Deindustrialized, Many Of Them Are Being Transformed Into Absolute Hellholes

The other day, I wrote the following about what is happening in cities and towns across the United States….

All across America there are cities and towns that were once prosperous and beautiful that are being transformed into absolute hellholes.  The scars left by the long-term economic decline of the United States are getting deeper and more gruesome.

#19 Without Good Jobs, An Increasing Number Of Americans Are Having To Turn To Government Assistance

We are going to support U.S. workers one way or another.  Either we are going to provide them with good jobs, or we are going to let their jobs be shipped out of the country and we are going to pay for the government to feed and house them.

Today, there are more than 45 million Americans on food stamps.  That number has gone up by more than 70 percent since 2007.  Almost every single month we set a new all-time record for the number of people being fed by the federal government.

#20 If Nothing Is Done, All Of This Is Going To Get A Lot Worse

According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades.

Can you imagine what America is going to look like if that happens?

**********

Okay, so in light of all of that information, can anyone out there defend the current “free trade” policies of the federal government?

The Top 100 Statistics About The Collapse Of The Economy That Every American Voter Should Know

The U.S. economy is dying and most American voters have no idea why it is happening.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media and most of our politicians are not telling the truth about the collapse of the economy.  This generation was handed the keys to the greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen, and we have completely wrecked it.  Decades of incredibly foolish decisions have left us drowning in an ocean of corruption, greed and bad debt.  Thousands of businesses and millions of jobs have left the country and poverty is exploding from coast to coast.  We are literally becoming a joke to the rest of the world.  It is absolutely imperative that we educate America about what is happening.  Until the American people truly understand the problems that we are facing, they will not be willing to implement the solutions that are necessary.

The following are the top 100 statistics about the collapse of the economy that every American voter should know….

#100 A staggering 48.5% of all Americans live in a household that receives some form of government benefits.  Back in 1983, that number was below 30 percent.

#99 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.

#98 Since Barack Obama was sworn in, the share of the national debt per household has increased by $35,835.

#97 The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

#96 It is being projected that the U.S. national debt will hit 344% of GDP by the year 2050 if we continue on our current course.

#95 The Congressional Budget Office is projecting that U.S. government debt held by the public will reach a staggering 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.

#94 In 2010, the U.S. government paid $413 billion in interest on the national debt.  That is projected to at least double over the next decade.

#93 According to one new survey, one out of every three Americans would not be able to make a mortgage or rent payment next month if they suddenly lost their current job.

#92 State and local government debt has reached an all-time high of 22 percent of U.S. GDP.

#91 In 1980, government transfer payments accounted for just 11.7% of all income.  Today, government transfer payments account for 18.4% of all income.

#90 U.S. households are now receiving more income from the U.S. government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#89 According to a new study conducted by the BlackRock Investment Institute, the ratio of household debt to personal income in the United States is now 154 percent.

#88 If you can believe it, one out of every seven Americans has at least 10 credit cards.

#87 According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, health care costs accounted for just 9.5% of all personal consumption back in 1980.  Today they account for approximately 16.3%.

#86 The cost of a health insurance policy for the average American family rose by a whopping 9 percent last year, and according to a report put out by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust, the average family health insurance policy now costs over $15,000 a year.

#85 One study found that approximately 41 percent of working age Americans either have medical bill problems or are currently paying off medical debt.

#84 An all-time record 49.9 million Americans do not have any health insurance at all at this point, and the percentage of Americans covered by employer-based health plans has fallen for 11 years in a row.

#83 According to a report published in The American Journal of Medicine, medical bills are a major factor in more than 60 percent of the personal bankruptcies in the United States.  Of those bankruptcies that were caused by medical bills, approximately 75 percent of them involved individuals that actually did have health insurance.

#82 Average yearly tuition at U.S. private universities is now up to $27,293.

#81 The cost of college tuition in the United States has gone up by over 900 percent since 1978.

#80 In America today, approximately two-thirds of all college students graduate with student loans.

#79 In 2010, the average college graduate had accumulated approximately $25,000 in student loan debt by graduation day.

#78 The total amount of student loan debt in the United States now exceeds the total amount of credit card debt in the United States.

#77 One-third of all college graduates end up taking jobs that don’t even require college degrees.

#76 In the United States today, there are more than 100,000 janitors that have college degrees.

#75 In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees.

#74 In the United States today, approximately 365,000 cashiers have college degrees.

#73 It is being projected that for the first time ever, the OPEC nations are going to bring in over a trillion dollars from exporting oil this year.  Their biggest customer is the United States.

#72 U.S. oil companies will bring in about $200 billion in pre-tax profits this year.  They will also receive about $4.4 billion in specialized tax breaks from the U.S. government.

#71 The United States has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976, and since that time the United States has run a total trade deficit of more than 7.5 trillion dollars with the rest of the world.

#70 The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

#69 The U.S. trade deficit with China is now 27 times larger than it was back in 1990.

#68 Today, the United States spends more than 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.

#67 China has surpassed the United States and is now the largest PC market in the entire world.

#66 In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in “advanced technology products” of $16 billion with the rest of the world.  In 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.

#65 In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China was “scrap and trash”.

#64 Do you remember when the United States was the dominant manufacturer of automobiles and trucks on the globe?  Well, in 2010 the U.S. ran a trade deficit in automobiles, trucks and parts of $110 billion.

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

#62 If you can believe it, more than 42,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been closed down since 2001.

#61 Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.

#60 Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.

#59 According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades.

#58 If you gathered together all of the workers that are “officially” unemployed in the United States today, they would constitute the 68th largest country in the world.

#57 There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States right now than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then.

#56 Back in 1969, 95 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 54 had a job.  In July, only 81.2 percent of men in that age group had a job.

#55 Only 55.3% of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 were employed last year.  That was the lowest level that we have seen since World War II.

#54 Today, there are 5.9 million Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 that are living with their parents.

#53 The economic downturn has been particularly tough on men.  According to Census data, men are twice as likely to live with their parents as women are.

#52 According to one recent survey, only 14 percent of all Americans that are 28 or 29 years old are optimistic about their financial futures.

Wake up as many people as you can.

We are running out of time.
