When 43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent, We Can Safely Say the Economic Collapse Is HERE

By Daisy Luther

You know all those reports about how lots of Americans can’t afford a $1000 surprise expense like a medical bill or a car repair? Well, forget additional expenses. It turns out that nearly half of the families in America are struggling to pay for food and rent. And that means that the economic collapse isn’t just “coming.” It’s HERE.

United Way has done a study on a group of Americans they call ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The study found that this group does not make the money needed “to survive in the modern economy.”

ALICE is your child care worker, your parent on Social Security, the cashier at your supermarket, the gas attendant, the salesperson at your big box store, your waitress, a home health aide, an office clerk.

ALICE cannot always pay the bills, has little or nothing in savings, and is forced to make tough choices such as deciding between quality child care or paying the rent. One unexpected car repair or medical bill can push these financially strapped families over the edge.

ALICE is a hardworking member of the community who is employed yet does not earn enough to afford the basic necessities of life.

ALICE earns above the federal poverty level but does not earn enough to afford a bare-bones household budget of housing, child care, food, transportation, and healthcare. (source)

Between families living below the poverty line due to unemployment or disability and ALICEs, the study discovered that 43% of Americans were struggling to cover basic necessities like rent and food.

Where are families struggling the most?

Some states have more families living in ALICE levels than others. The 3 states with the most families barely surviving paycheck to paycheck are California, New Mexico, and Hawaii. Each of these states saw 49% of families struggling. North Dakota had the lowest ALICE percentage with 32%. You can check how your state fares right here. Despite the lowest unemployment rate since 2000, families all over the country are barely getting by.

The media page of the ALICE website is jammed with headlines that are all too familiar for many Americans:

  • Report: Michigan makes little progress in lifting working poor to financial stability
  • After a decade of tax cuts — Ohioans in financial hardship
  • Louisiana families work hard, but still can’t cover necessities
  • 44 percent of Florida households, mostly working poor, struggling to meet basic needs
  • Third of New Jersey households can’t afford basic necessities
  • 42 percent of Wisconsin households struggle to pay bills

And on and on and on…

The economic collapse of America is here.

While many families are still doing okay, the specter of poverty looms over many of us. Many of us know that we’re one personal financial catastrophe away from disaster. I wrote recently about my own family’s struggle with a large medical bill.

Obviously, I’m not telling you about our financial saga to make myself look bad. I’m telling you because I want you to know that no matter how much you try to do everything right, financial problems can happen to anyone, at any time. Whether you have $100 in the bank or $100,000 in the bank, something can happen that wipes out your emergency fund just like it did mine.

This doesn’t mean that you failed financially – it means that circumstances can affect you, just like they do everyone else, no matter how careful you are.

Before my daughter’s illness, I was doing everything “right.”

– I had enough money in my emergency fund to carry me through 3 lean months
– I had numerous credit cards with zero balances
– My only debt was my car
– My kids are going to school without student loans
– I opted out of health insurance because it was more financially practical to pay cash (and I still agree with that decision)

Everything was great.

Until it wasn’t. (source)

This is a story that probably rings true to more and more familiar to a growing number of families every week.

While my income hasn’t dropped – it’s grown – I am still struggling to pay off those bills and recover. I’ve taken on a significant amount of extra work to get things back under control, and still, I worry it won’t be enough.

Sound familiar?

If it does, it’s because – and of this, I am quite certain – the long-heralded economic collapse of America is upon us. When hard-working families who should be “middle class” can barely afford to eat and keep a roof over their heads, things are only going to devolve further.

Look at other examples of economic collapse

This is just the beginning of a looming collapse in America.

Remember back when Greece began to collapse? It was the same thing – no one could afford the basics and things went downhill pretty quickly from there. It really hit the papers when a strict austerity program was instituted and culminated when a “bank holiday” shut down the financial system for an entire week.

There are similar stories in the UK (where the taxpayers can still fund a 45 million dollar wedding but poor families can’t afford to eat every day), Argentina, and Cyprus.

Jose wrote for us about the warning signs that the collapse of Venezuela was approaching and they’re eerily familiar. Food rationing began, the cost of medical care became prohibitive, the health insurance system began to fail, and people began to make difficult choices about rent versus food.

I don’t know how it could be any more clear than the fact that nearly half of the American population is also making that decision each month.

What’s the answer?

While the United Way hopes to boost the minimum wage, I don’t feel that is the answer because it will drive businesses to let employees go when they can’t afford to pay them. We have seen this happen in fast food establishments in which humans are on their way to being replaced by self-service kiosks and burger-flipping robots.

I believe the only answer is to begin to produce more than we consume. Currently, Americans are like a horde of locusts, working at jobs that produce nothing, but consuming rabidly the imports that feed us, clothe us, and entertain us. We’re looking at economic tariffs on imports that may increase their price up to 40% and our own exports will be subject to tariffs in return.

If you find yourself in a tough spot, these tips from The Cheapskate’s Guide to the Galaxy may help.

  1. Audit your situation. See where all your money is going, see how much debt you’re in, and see what the most immediate ramifications will be.
  2. Take care of the most important things first. In most situations, keeping your home paid for (rent or mortgage), paying utilities, and making your auto and insurance payments should come first. Take care of the things that will have the most immediate ramifications first.
  3. You may have to make some late payments on less vital things. If so, communicate with those to whom you owe money and try to make arrangements. This may affect your credit, but by communicating with them, you can keep damage to a minimum.
  4. Cut your expenses. When you audit your situation, you may find some places that you can slash your regular expenses. Don’t hesitate to reduce services that are unnecessary or to whittle down your monthly obligations. (More ideas here)
  5. Put a little money back into your emergency fund as soon as possible. This may sound counterintuitive but having a bit of money for minor emergencies means that you won’t need to rely on credit cards for these things, putting you even further in the hole.
  6. Pay off your debts. Use the snowball method to attack your debts. Start paying these off AFTER you pay for the things I recommended in step 2.
  7. Use the things you have on hand. Delay a trip to the store for as long as possible by planning a menu using the food in your pantry and freezer. (Think about the stockpile challenge we did and use those strategies. Get some ideas for meals from your stockpile in this article) Use the shampoo, soap, and personal hygiene products that you have already instead of buying new products.
  8. Raise extra money. This may come from selling things you don’t need, taking on some extra work, or by creating a product or service to sell. However you do this, use the extra revenue wisely to get out of debt and to rebuild your emergency fund. There are more ideas for making money quickly in this issue.

And to harden yourself against the collapse that will only get worse, make these changes to help your family survive.

What can you store?” is not the right question to ask.

“What can you make?” – that’s the right question.

Your focus has to be on long-term sustainability, frugality, and self-reliance.  Don’t get me wrong – a stockpile is sensible and an essential course of action. It should definitely be part of your preparedness plan.

However, you need to also be ready for the time when the supplies in your well-stocked pantry are no longer available.  You need to be able to meet as many of your own needs as possible or you’ll end up being one of those people wearing dirty clothes because you can’t find laundry soap or going hungry because you can’t find any food at the stores – or can’t afford it if you can find it. You need to be ready for the end of a consumer-driven lifestyle, because quite frankly, there may soon come a day when there are no consumer goods to be had. Here are some ways to work on your

Here are some ways to work on your self-reliance:

It’s only by reducing your need for the things sold in stores that you can exempt yourself from the chaos and desperation that will erupt when everyone realizes that an economic collapse has occurred.

Homosexuality as a Weapon

Renegade Editor’s Note: Almost 40 years ago, the good professor saw this trend figured out. Just imagine if he could see the current level of degeneracy. Also, male homosexuality should be opposed for its physical and psychological destructiveness, especially since it is being promoted to young children as a healthy alternative lifestyle.

By Revilo P. Oliver (1979)

HOMOSEXUALITY is being intensively promoted by the Jews as one phase of their campaign to liquidate our race, which they evidently regard as unreliable livestock. And no one is offering any rational opposition to what is becoming a homosexual epidemic.

Anita Bryant and David Noebel are probably sincere (I am acquainted with the latter, and I feel certain that he is; I have not met the former, but see no reason to doubt her sincerity), but their efforts are necessarily ineffectual and for that reason are mildly encouraged by the Jews, who give them some publicity in their press as typical opponents of “sexual freedom.” Both base part of their opposition on the Christian superstition (i.e., the Jews’ greatest hoax) and tell people that sexual perversion is wrong ’cause Jesus says “naughty, naughty” — an argument which merely excites laughter in persons who are rational and have a modicum of education.

The argument is self-defeating for several reasons. To begin with, it is not true. The recent recovery by Professor Mortimer Smith of part of the homosexual episode that was deleted from the gospel of “Mark” (the one that was included in the “New Testament” when it was thrown together in the Fourth Century by the sect that became “orthodox”) shows that the Christian sects which overtly practiced homosexuality had good authority for it in the then-current tales about Jesus. And, of course, the Christian holy men have in all ages been the foremost practitioners of male homosexuality, and are notoriously so today, probably because the salvation-business attracts males who are insufficiently masculine.

There are undoubtedly two causes of homosexuality, biological degeneracy and induced perversion, and the great difficulty is in determining the relative importance of the two causes, since we know so little about the inheritance of mental characteristics that the biological cause is certain only when accompanied by anatomical abnormality. Induced perversion is our principal concern, since it is the only one that we can try to check at present. Here there is a further division, for we must distinguish between exclusive homosexuality (or virtually exclusive, since some perverts marry and beget children, presumably as protective covering) and “bisexuality,” which is so much in fashion now.

For example, according to reports that I see no reason to doubt, one of the largest fraternities on the campus of the local university, which, perhaps significantly, is the one that particularly tries to enlist White athletes, has a homosexual orgy as its ceremony of initiation into the fraternity to make certain that all the members enjoy such fun, but they also bring in “co-eds” frequently for general copulation, which all the members are said to enjoy also. The phenomenal vogue of “bisexuality” in our time is almost certainly a matter of fashion, i.e., induced by current education, but it also makes it difficult to distinguish between the two types who practice homosexuality.

As you probably know, pornography is one of the most lucrative businesses in the United States as well as a principal weapon of Jewish subversion. Recent trends in that field include: (1) The major pornographic periodicals (of which there are ten, all with paid circulations of from 2,000,000 to 7,000,000, which are for sale on all newsstands) are still heterosexual in their photography, showing attractive females and copulation between male and female, with occasional copulation between females, but never between males. A major part of these journals, however, consists of articles that are not illustrated, comprising both letters from readers who have new ideas about copulation or advice from experts on that subject. These now show a marked increase in emphasis on “bisexuality.” (2) Pornographic periodicals for homosexuals are still a specialized field, and the magazines devoted to it have comparatively small circulations (all under 1,000,000, and all but one under 500,000), and are usually sold only in the pornographic stores, not generally on the newsstands.) (3) The same division of fields is found in the motion picture films which are sold for private viewing. The major business is heterosexual. The significant trend in the past two years has been an ever-increasing emphasis on copulation between White women and Congoid males, with copulation between White males and Mongolian females a secondary trend. (4) Films showing males copulating with males have thus far been a specialized business, i.e., are produced by different firms and advertised to different mailing lists. Very recently, however, two of the principal major distributors, who heretofore confined their business to heterosexual films, have begun to offer “bisexual” films and one even offers homosexual films. It will be interesting to see whether these firms find the homosexual element “good business.”

The Kinsey reports make the claim that 37% of the male population has had some homosexual adventures. I can express no opinion concerning the reports’ reliability, but I observe that the scientific method requires that findings that are to be generally accepted must be subject to independent verification, i.e., the experiment can be duplicated by other investigators with the same results.

This is not true of the Kinsey reports, which, by the way, were financed by one of the Rockefeller foundations. The reports purport to be conclusions drawn from the interrogation of persons (not classified by race or social status and selected by procedures not clearly defined) whose answers were recorded in a code known only to the investigators on cards that are kept secret with a provision for their immediate destruction, should anyone obtain from a court an order for inspection of the data. In these circumstances, it is possible that the data were partly or entirely fabricated by Kinsey and/or his assistants. One cannot accuse them of fraud, but neither can one absolve them of suspicion of it.

The Kinsey report has been attacked by many psychiatrists, who are usually polite enough to profess belief in Kinsey’s good faith. I note, for example, that his “37%” conclusion is dismissed as ”fantastic” by Drs. Edmund Bergler and William S. Kroger in their book, Kinsey’s Myth of Female Sexuality (New York, 1954), p. 185, where they also comment that the effect of his erroneous report (in which they earlier identify twelve methodological errors that “eliminated the last possibility of arriving at even approximately correct results”) would be to increase the practice of male homosexuality by convincing the young that it is common and therefore presumably normal. That, undoubtedly, has been the effect.

In fact, if Kinsey had been hired to destroy what was left of sexual morality in this country, he would have manufactured his ostensibly objective report as the most efficacious means of doing so.

However that may be, I believe the only effective opposition to homosexuality must be based on racial grounds, i.e., on considerations that will be disregarded so long as the Jews control the mentality of our hapless race.

At that point, of course, the problem of homosexuality becomes merged with that of the general prostitution of American females. Our public schools try to get children to start copulating as early as possible (that was one of the stated objectives in the “consolidation” of schools, requiring the hauling of children long distances and away from the communities in which their parents reside, while the unstated objective was preparation for “integration” to force White children into the most degrading association with sub-humans). Most schools in which the children are puberate now have special classes to teach copulation, and “health programs” which supply contraceptives to the females so that they will have no hesitation about copulating with any male. No stable family can be founded on a marriage between a man and an unpaid whore for whom he cannot have the slightest respect.

FBI Says We Have to End Encrypted Messaging Because of Moslems

This is yet another case of “why we can’t have nice things.”

If it wasn’t for Islamics, there would be no reason to need to check people’s phones.

They are literally telling you that you have to lose freedoms because of brown people murdering you.

RT:

In another blast at privacy, FBI director Christopher Wray has said that powerful encryption which blocks law enforcement agencies from accessing data on devices represents an “urgent public safety issue.”

In a speech at a cyber security conference in New York on Tuesday, Wray said the FBI was unable to access data from nearly 7,800 devices last year despite possessing the legal authority to do so, Reuters reports.

This was more than half of the devices the bureau tried to crack into. “This is an urgent public safety issue,” Wray said, adding that finding a solution to the problem is “not so clear cut.”

In an effort to protect data many devices and applications now encrypt content by default. Some applications, such as WhatsApp or Telegram, use end-to-end encryption, which means private communications cannot be intercepted.

“We face an enormous and increasing number of cases that rely heavily, if not exclusively, on electronic evidence,” Wray told the International Conference on Cyber Security.

Finding a solution to the problem will require “significant innovation,” Wray said, before adding that he does not “buy the claim that it is impossible.”

He isn’t even wrong that there is a public safety issue. Our country actually is crawling with hajis and they actually do want to commit mass murder.

The proposition here is: freedom or brown people.

And I for one would prefer to have millions of gang-raping terrorists flooding my country to kill my family and live on welfare.

DEATHWATCH: John McCain Checks into the Hospital – Doesn’t Want Trump Gloating at His Funeral

Andrew Anglin

Daily Stormer

If he didn’t want people celebrating his agonizing death, maybe he shouldn’t have spent his entire life plotting to destroy America?

At last, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is quickly approaching: the death of John McCain.

We celebrated when he was diagnosed with the inoperable tumor, but we had hoped he would die quickly. Instead, he has lived on to harm America further.

Fox News:

President Trump on Friday called the wife of Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who was hospitalized this week as he battles brain cancer, the White House said.

An official said Trump spoke by phone with Cindy McCain on Friday afternoon to “check in on Sen. McCain’s condition.”

“Is the evil America-hating sonovabitch dead yet?”

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with brain cancer in July. On Wednesday, his office said he had been admitted to the hospital.

“Senator McCain is currently receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy,” his office said. “As ever, he remains grateful to his physicians for their excellent care, and his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes. Senator McCain looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible.”

Despite his hospitalization, McCain’s Republican colleagues expressed optimism he will be able to make the expected votes on the tax overhaul next week. Senators must be physically present on the Senate floor to cast votes.

“Of course we all wish for Sen. McCain to have a great health for as long as possible,” Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said Friday on Fox News. “My sense is that everybody’s made a commitment to be there next week. And we will certainly be able to have the vote. Our prayers go to him and his family.”

John McCain is an inoperable tumor on this country.

We’ll be having a celebratory podcast marathon when he finally dies once and for all.

Update: 5/7/18

(WASHINGTON) — A frail Sen. John McCain has been receiving a stream of visitors and good wishes at his Arizona ranch as he confronts the aftermath of brain cancer treatment and surgery.

Former Vice President Joe Biden sat with McCain for 90 minutes Sunday, according to people close to both men. Biden followed McCain’s closest friends, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and retired Connecticut Sen. ((((((Joe Lieberman)))))), who visited McCain at the Mayo Clinic two weeks ago. McCain’s daughter, Meghan, tweeted Friday that she was heading to her father’s side.

“Going home to Arizona to be with my family,” she tweeted. “Thank you all again for your prayers, patience, understanding and compassion during this time. It means the world to me and my entire family.”

McCain, 81, had hoped to return to the Senate, where he’s served since 1987. He has been unable to do so after cancer treatment and surgery for an intestinal infection last month. Despite that, he’s finished work on a new book being released May 22, “The Restless Wave.” And he continued to advocate for a return to the days when partisans could disagree without demonizing each other.

“I’d like to see us recover our sense that we’re more alike than different,” McCain said in audio excerpts from his book reported by National Public Radio.

McCain has amplified his call for more civil politics since his diagnosis in July with glioblastoma. It is the same rare and aggressive brain cancer that felled his friend, Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy, at age 77 in 2009, and Biden’s son Beau at 46 in 2015.

He hasn’t been seen in public since December, just before he was hospitalized for a viral infection at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington. He then returned home to Arizona to recover and undergo physical therapy and continuing cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix. On December 17, his office issued a news release saying he was looking forward to returning to Washington in January.

 McCain did not return.

He has primarily been staying at his family retreat south of Sedona, Arizona, a sprawling and secluded ranch house along tree-lined Oak Creek where he loves to have family gatherings and barbecue for friends. His daughter, Meghan, was married there in November to Ben Domenech, publisher of the online political and cultural magazine The Federalist. The senator has been known to lead nature tours featuring his extensive knowledge of dozens of species of birds on the property.

McCain’s family and staff have kept news of his condition and treatment private, with his office routinely saying it has no new information to share. In mid-April, it was announced that he had been hospitalized for intestinal surgery needed to stem an infection related to diverticulitis, a condition where the colon develops small bulges that can sometimes become infected.

 At week’s end, McCain was recuperating, eating well and enjoying the ranch at full bloom, according to a person close to him.

The visits by Graham and ((((((Lieberman)))))) were confirmed to The Associated Press by people knowledgeable about the meetings, but who spoke on condition of anonymity to respect the family’s privacy.

His wife, Cindy McCain, tweeted April 23 that he had been released from the hospital, but no official word came from his Senate office.

McCain doesn’t want Trump at funeral, friends tell White House

McCain, who has been battling brain cancer, and Trump have had a turbulent relationship. The senator wants Vice President Mike Pence to attend instead.

John McTumor Doesn’t Want Trump Gloating at His Funeral

Adrian Sol
Daily Stormer

He might be the first man in history to be remembered less fondly than the tumor that killed him.

Nobody wants to have a bunch of people gloating over their deaths at their funeral. John McCain is no exception.

But here’s the thing: if he didn’t want people celebrating his agonizing death, maybe he shouldn’t have spent his entire life plotting to destroy America?

If McCain wants only people who will genuinely mourn him at his funeral, he probably needs to have it set in Israel.

NBC:

People close to Sen. John McCain have told the White House that the ailing Arizona Republican does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral and would like Vice President Mike Pence to come instead, a source close to McCain confirmed to NBC News.

I dunno, I bet Trump would make a killer speech. Though it would probably be more of a roast. Man, I’d pay a lot of money to see that.

You know Trump would just make this face during the entire ceremony.

McCain, 81, has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for nearly a year and is back home in Arizona after he underwent surgery last month for an intestinal infection.

The senator, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, said in an audio excerpt this week of his forthcoming memoir, “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here,” according to a clip aired by NPR.

When you know you could die at any moment, you need to live as if every day could be your last. For normal people, that means connecting with their families, putting their affairs in order and making peace with their Gods.

In McCain’s case, however, that meant putting his shilling into OVERDRIVE.

What a sick bastard.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.

Trump did not attend the recent funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush in Houston, Texas, in order “to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service,” the White House said last month. First lady Melania Trump attended the service instead, along with former Presidents George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and former first lady Hillary Clinton.

I bet the real reason is because he couldn’t find the right words to subtly humiliate the entire Bush family during the occasion. And also, because you just know the catering would suck.

We don’t want to eat your disgusting cucumber sandwiches and shitty burritos.

McTumor’s unnatural resilience to death is giving me a major case of blue balls here. It’s taking so long the reservations I made for the celebration party I’m organizing are expiring. Is the McCain family going to pay me damages for that? I bet they won’t even have the courtesy.

These people are the scum of the earth.

Christopher Cantwell Got Totally and Entirely Kiked – Still in Jail

American Hero

 

Radio host and white racial advocate Christopher Cantwell had a hearing yesterday. He stood charged with three counts of violence related to using pepper spray at the Unite the Right Rally.

A tranny and a regular faggot went to a magistrate to file the charges against Cantwell and a warrant was issued (this is some weird process I wasn’t even aware of before this) and he was denied bail on fake claims that are disproved by video evidence. Meanwhile – I should remind you – you can attack a US Senator and break five of his ribs and get out on $5000 bond. Just so you understand.

We expected Cantwell’s charges dropped, given that the accusers had lied under oath and the whole thing is retarded.

They went through the video in court, and it was determined that the accusers had lied under oath – one of them admitted to it on the stand – but the judge decided to leave him to rot in jail longer anyway.

One of the charges was dropped and the other two were combined into a single charge.

It’s a charge relating to just discharging the pepper spray in a crowd. Not against any specific person. And the “malicious wounding” aspect has been removed. He was looking at a max of 60 years, now the max is 5.

It’s not clear whether he’ll get another bond hearing or not.

Basically, what this looks like is that the court knows that they’ve kept the poor bastard locked in jail for three months on fake charges and to dismiss all three would make it appear as though they were just politically persecuting this guy for no reason. Which is exactly what they are doing.

They know that he did nothing, that he will be convicted of nothing, but they are using the justice system’s processes of justice as a punishment.

If they send him to a jury trial over one of these charges, it looks better than just letting him out now and being like “whoops, we kept you in jail for three months for no reason, lol.”

It drags the whole thing out to the point where no one will even remember what it was about to begin with, and going to trial gives legitimacy to what is effectively unlawful imprisonment.

Cantwell went over this stuff yesterday on his Live From Seg podcast, which is recorded over the Charlottesville city jail phone with his friend Jared Howe.

If you haven’t yet, or if you have, donate to his legal fund.

DONATE HERE

It’s full, but he still needs money – more now that he’s gotta pay for more stuff.

And it’s important for us to do these legal funds for our guys. We need to show each other that we’ll be there to support each other.

And we’re not doing the Unite the Right type rally again. So hopefully, we’re not going to have more guys in jail any time soon.

Repeated Claims of 6 Million Jews Dying Decades Before Hitler Vs Ignored Soviet Death Camp Tolls

From http://www.renegadetribune.com/repeated-claims-of-6-million-jews-dying-decades-before-hitler-vs-ignored-soviet-death-camp-tolls/

By John Wear

The Atlanta Journal and Constitution newspaper estimates that only half of the Jewish “Holocaust survivors” around the world in 1985 had received restitution under the BEG.[24] If this 50% estimate is accurate, it would mean that approximately 5.8 million European Jews survived German persecution during World War II. Such a large number of surviving Jews is not consistent with a German program of genocide against European Jewry.

Did 6 Million Jews Die in World War II?

The allegation that 6 million Jews died in World War II is today widely considered to be an established historical fact. For example, the Encyclopedia Judaica states, “There can be no doubt as to the estimated figure of some 6 million victims.”[1] The U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. is described in its information sheet as a “living memorial to the 6 million Jews and millions of other victims of Nazi fanaticism who perished in the Holocaust.” However, an analysis of the 6 million Jewish wartime deaths shows that this figure is not the result of any careful investigation, research or calculation.

History of the 6 Million Jewish Deaths Figure

The 6 million figure of Jewish deaths had been used and predicted long before the end of World War II. An ancient Jewish prophecy had promised the Jews their return to the Promised Land after a loss of 6 million of their people.[2] According to the book Breaking the Spell by Nicholas Kollerstrom, publications and speakers had referred to the death or persecution of 6 million Jews on at least 166 occasions before the end of World War II.[3]

For example, the 10th edition, vol. 25 of the Encyclopedia Britannica published in 1902 states:

While there are in Russia and Rumania 6 millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded…” An article in the March 25, 1906 edition of the New York Times worried about the “condition and future of Russia’s 6 million Jews…” The article further states “…the Russian Government’s studied policy for the ‘solution’ of the Jewish question is systematic and murderous extermination.” ((((((Max Nordau)))))), cofounder of the World Zionist Organization, warned in 1911 of the “annihilation of 6 million people” at the Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland.[4]

The New York Times on December 2, 1914, made an appeal for aid for Jews. The paper stated:

The American Jewish Relief Committee, called into being at a conference of more than 100 national Jewish organizations which was held at Temple Emanu-El on October 25 to consider the plight of more than 6 million Jews who live within the war zone…”[5]

The figure of 6 million Jewish deaths was used by Martin H. Glynn, the Governor of New York. Glynn wrote an article entitled “The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop!” that was printed in The American Hebrew magazine published by the American Jewish Committee. In this article Glynn states:

Six million men and women are dying from lack of the necessaries of life; eight hundred thousand children cry for bread. And this fate is upon them through no fault of their own, through no transgression of the laws of God or man; but through the awful tyranny of war and a bigoted lust for Jewish blood.”

Glynn’s article was printed on October 31, 1919. The allegation was the “threatened holocaust of human life” was occurring after the Great War.[6]

The Chicago Tribune on July 20, 1921 published an article headlined: “Begs America Save 6,000,000 in Russia.” This article claimed that “Russia’s 6 million Jews are facing extermination by massacre. As the famine is spreading, the counter-revolutionary movement is gaining and the Soviet’s control is waning.” The United Jewish Campaign of New York in 1926 set a fundraising goal of $6,000,000 to help the “dying” Jews of Europe. On December 29, 1931 a Montreal newspaper ran a baseless claim from Rabbi Stephen Wise that 6 million Jews faced starvation in southeastern Europe.[7]

The New York Times on May 31, 1936, published an article headlined “Americans Appeal for Jewish Refuge.” This article appealed to Great Britain to “…throw open the gates of Palestine and let in the victimized and persecuted Jews escaping from the European holocaust.”[8] Also in 1936, ((((((Chaim Weizmann)))))) is reported to have said to the Peel Commission:

It is no exaggeration to say that 6 million Jews are sentenced to be imprisoned in this part of the world, where they are unwanted, and for whom the countries are divided into those, where they are unwanted, and those, where they are not admitted.”[9]

On January 9, 1938, the New York Times reported another false claim of 6 million Jewish victims of persecution.[10]

In an article appearing in the June 25, 1940 issue of the Palm Beach Post, Dr. ((((((Nahum Goldmann)))))), who was the administrative committee chairman of the World Jewish Congress, said “if the Nazis should achieve final victory 6 million Jews in Europe are doomed to destruction.” Not a single Jew had been interned and Hitler was still pleading for peace. Yet the so-called Holocaust and the 6 million Jews doomed to destruction was already established.[11]

The number of 6 million appeared again on January 4, 1945, when the Jewish chief of Soviet atrocity propaganda, ((((((Ilya Ehrenburg)))))), stated that this is the number of Jews that had died in World War II.[12] On January 8, 1945, the New York Timespublished an article in which Jacob Lestchinsky, a Communist correspondent for the New York Jewish Daily Forward, estimated that the Jewish population in Europe had been reduced from 9,500,000 in 1939 to 3,500,000. Lestchinsky stated: “Of the 6 million European Jews who have died, 5 million had lived in the countries under Hitler’s occupation.”[13] How Ehrenburg and Lestchinsky came up with their numbers fully four months before the end of the war is anyone’s guess.

Immediately after the end of the war in Europe, an article in the Pittsburg Press on May 13, 1945, headlined “Nazis Destroy 6 Million Jews.”[14] In June 1945, some Zionist leaders were also able to state that 6 million Jews had died during the war. These Zionist leaders made this statement even though the chaos in Europe at the time made any definitive demographic studies impossible.[15]

The figure of 6 million Jews who died in World War II reappeared at the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg. The number of 6 million used at the IMT is based primarily on the hearsay evidence given by the written deposition of German SS-bureaucrat Wilhelm Höttl.[16] The verbal but never cross-examined testimony of Dieter Wisliceny, who said that 5 million Jews had died during the war, is also used to substantiate the figure of 6 million.[17] These two men claimed that they heard these statements from Adolf Eichmann, but Eichmann later disputed that he ever made these statements.[18] Thus, the prosecution’s claim at the IMT that 6 million Jews died in World War II is based solely on hearsay evidence from two German SS-bureaucrats seeking exemption from punishment whose only source later said that he never made the statement.

The 6 million figure of Jews murdered by Nazi Germany was regarded as a proven fact by the end of the IMT. Sir Hartley Shawcross stated in his closing address that “more than 6 million” Jews were killed by the Germans, and that

…murder [was] conducted like some mass production industry in the gas chambers and the ovens of Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka, Buchenwald, Mauthausen, Majdanek and Oranienburg.”[19]

Why 6 Million Is an Overstated Number

Stephen F. Pinter, who was a U.S. War department attorney stationed in Germany after the war, disputed the claim that millions of Jews were murdered by Germany. In a statement made in 1959, he wrote:

From what I was able to determine during six postwar years in Germany and Austria, there were a number of Jews killed, but the figure of a million was certainly never reached. I interviewed thousands of Jews, former inmates of concentration camps in Germany and Austria, and consider myself as well qualified as any man on this subject.”[20]

The eyewitness testimony of Jewish survivors of the German concentration camps is often cited to establish the genocide of 6 million European Jews by Germany. However, the New York Jewish publication Aufbau documents in 1965 that 3,375,000 inmates, the vast majority of whom were Jewish, had survived the German camps and were receiving reparations from Germany.[21] How could there be 3,375,000 survivors of the German concentration camps receiving reparations from Germany 20 years after the war was over if Germany had mass murdered 6 million Jews? ((((((Norman Finkelstein)))))), the author of The Holocaust Industry, quotes his mother as asking,

If everyone who claims to be a Holocaust survivor actually is one, who did Hitler kill?”[22]

As of January 1984, there were 4.39 million successful individual restitution claims under the terms of the German Federal Compensation Law (BEG) of 1953 and 1956. This law provides monetary compensation to individuals who were “persecuted for political, racial, religious or ideological reasons” by the wartime German government. The great majority of these successful restitution claims were from Jews. ((((((Raul Hilberg)))))) estimates that about two thirds of the allowed claims had been from Jews.[23] Using Hilberg’s conservative estimate would mean that over 2.9 million Jews had received BEG restitution claims by January 1984.

The number of 2.9 million Jewish claimants understates the number of Jews who survived World War II because as of 1985 Jews in Poland, the Soviet Union, Hungary, Romania and Czechoslovakia were not eligible for BEG restitution. Also, some European Jews who survived World War II died before the German BEG restitution law was enacted in 1953. The Atlanta Journal and Constitution newspaper estimates that only half of the Jewish “Holocaust survivors” around the world in 1985 had received restitution under the BEG.[24] If this 50% estimate is accurate, it would mean that approximately 5.8 million European Jews survived German persecution during World War II. Such a large number of surviving Jews is not consistent with a German program of genocide against European Jewry.

The Holocaust story also originally claimed that about 4 million Jews died at Auschwitz-Birkenau. As late as 1988, on page 19 of the official Auschwitz State Museum Guidebook, the official figure of 4 million Jews killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau is affirmed. The 4 million Jews who perished at Auschwitz-Birkenau had also been used by the Soviet State Extraordinary Commission for the Investigation of Nazi Crimes, the Supreme National Tribunal in Poland, and the IMT in Nuremberg. The estimate of 4 million Jews who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau was based on the evidence of hundreds of surviving prisoners and the opinion of experts.

Scholars such as Israeli Holocaust expert ((((((Yehuda Bauer)))))) and Dr. Franciszek Piper decided around 1989 to lower the Auschwitz-Birkenau death count. Dr. Piper states in his book Auschwitz: How Many Perished, “Altogether, a total of about 1,100,000 Jews ended up in Auschwitz-Birkenau in the years 1940-1945.”[25] The number of approximately 1 million Jews who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau is most often used as the official figure today, although some researchers such as Jean-Claude Pressac use much lower estimates. By dramatically lowering the figures, the camp curators were in effect admitting that the Communists and other officials had fabricated numbers that were too inflated to be believable. The 4 million Jewish deaths at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to be lowered to approximately 1 million in order to maintain the credibility of the Holocaust story.

Since the figure of 6 million Jews who died in German camps is based on the 4 million Jews who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau, one would think that the 6 million Jewish deaths in the German camps should be lowered to about 3 million. However, the official number of Jews dying in German concentration camps remains at 6 million even though this is now obviously an overstated number.[26]

Another factor making impossible the official number of 6 million Jews dying in German camps is the fact that thousands of corpses could not possibly have been cremated every day at Auschwitz-Birkenau as is commonly claimed. Ivan Lagacé, manager of a large crematory in Calgary, Canada, testified at the 1988 Ernst Zündel trial that based on his experience it would have only been possible to cremate a maximum of 184 bodies a day at Birkenau. Lagacé stated that the claim that the 46 retorts at Birkenau could cremate over 4,400 bodies in a day was “ludicrous,” “preposterous” and “beyond the realm of reality.”[27]

The book The Dissolution of Eastern European Jewry by Walter Sanning is probably the most scholarly study ever written of 20th century Jewish demography, especially in its analysis of World War II related Jewish population changes. Sanning bases his study almost exclusively on Allied, Zionist, and pro-Zionist West German sources. His analysis includes evidence given by the wartime U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, the Institute of Jewish Affairs, the American Jewish Year Book, official census publications, and the pro-Zionist Institute for Contemporary History in Munich. Sanning keeps his book as free of emotion as possible in order to contribute to a genuine discussion underlying the charge of German genocide.

While it would be impossible for anyone to give an exact number of Jews who died in the German camps during World War II, The Dissolution of Eastern European Jewry proves that not anywhere close to 6 million Jews died during the war. Sanning calculates that the worldwide losses suffered by Jews during the Second World War are in the neighborhood of 1¼ million.[28] He estimates that 15,967,000 Jews were alive in 1941 before the German invasion of the Soviet Union, and that the Jewish population was reduced to approximately 14,730,000 after the war.[29]

Importantly, Sanning shows that many of these Jewish losses were caused not by the direct impact of the war or by a program of German genocide, but by Soviet barbarism. Sanning states that hundreds of thousands of Jews lost their lives during the Soviet deportation to the east or in the Siberian labor and concentration camps. Sanning concludes that the food supply, shelter, and clothing provided to the Jewish inmates in the Soviet camps was woefully inadequate, and that medical attention was almost completely lacking.[30] Sanning’s conclusion is supported by Jewish historian Gerald Reitlinger, who states:

“n Southern Siberia the death-rate was very high for…Jews….”[31]

According to Sanning’s analysis, more Jews died in Soviet camps than died in German camps during the Second World War.
