US Class Warfare

Junious Ricardo Stanton talks about the ongoing class warfare in the US. The ruling oligopoly's agenda is to reduce us to debt peons, wage serfs and tax slaves. Armed conflict is not the answer. The obvious solution is to eschew consumerism and avoid needless debt...

                                                                   Class Warfare in the US

    “For the first time since the 1940s, the real incomes of middle-class families are lower at the end of the business cycle of the 2000s than they were at the beginning. Despite the fact that the American workforce is working harder and smarter than ever, they are sharing less and less in the benefits they are creating. This is true for white families but even truer for African American families whose gains in the 1990s have mostly been eliminated since then.

    AmeriKKKans have been conditioned and brainwashed to believe we live in a free and open society, that there are no rigid or hereditary class divisions in this country. Yes we begrudgingly admit that racism still exists but for the most part AmeriKKKans delude themselves into thinking upward mobility is a given and socio-economic class has no baring on how high and far you go here.  That may have been true in earlier times for large numbers of people thanks to hard fought gains in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by the organized labor, civil rights and feminist movements, but no more. Keep in mind even during those times,  the reactionary oligarchs and kleptomaniacs who own and  run the country put up fierce resistance in order to maintain the status quo and their control of it. Over the years they’ve made some concessions in order to co-opt any radical movements that emerged such as organized labor, the communists and civil rights but for the most part they kept control of the reins of power and wealth. Thiey just did it with the so called "Tea Party"  movement. The billionaire Koch brothers secretly funded parts of the movement and steered it to the Republicans so they count win an the rigged two party (one agenda) system. The elites win either way and will continue their onslaught on the masses.
 I have been saying on my Internet radio program and my From The Ramparts podcasts  the US has devolved into a fascist banana republic. What make us a banana republic? Deeply rooted conditions such as humongous  wealth and income inequities and disparities, a government totally controlled by corporations, special interests and a criminal financial elite, rigged political elections either by out and out voter fraud like we witnessed in 2000, 2002 and 2004 or  where the candidates are bought and paid for by special interests as in every election in US history. Of course a banana republic also is a ruthless police state where the police both open and secret (FBI, CIA,  NSA etc) work in collusion with a putrid  judicial system to spy on, intimidate and abuse the public at will. We just saw another blatant example of that with the Johannes Mehserle sentencing last week. I could go on but by now you get my drift.
Today in the US we are experiencing an egregious system of  economic apartheid where the wealth and income gaps are wider now than at any time since the 1920's. “The official US poverty numbers show we now have the highest number of poor people in 51 years. The official US poverty rate is 14.3 percent or 43.6 million people in poverty. One in five children in the US is poor; one in ten senior citizens is poor. Source: US Census Bureau. One of every six workers, 26.8 million people, is unemployed or underemployed. This ‘real’ unemployment rate is over 17%. There are 14.8 million people designated as 'officially' unemployed by the government, a rate of 9.6 percent. Unemployment is worse for African American workers of whom 16.1 percent are unemployed. Another 9.5 million people who are working only part-time while they are seeking full-time work but have had their hours cut back or are so far only able to find work part-time are not counted in the official unemployment numbers. Also, an additional 2.5 million are reported unemployed but not counted because they are classified as discouraged workers in part because they have been out of work for more than 12 months. Source: US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics October 2010 report. The median household income for whites in the US is $51,861; for Asians it is $65,469; for African Americans it is $32,584; for Latinos it is $38,039. Source: US Census Bureau.” Socialism? The Rich Are Winning the US Class War: Facts Show Rich Getting Richer Everyone Else Poorer by Bill Quigley October 25, 2010 www.michaelmoore.com/words/mike-friends-blog/
Wealth and income are definitely not equal in the US, in fact the rich are getting richer daily while the poor are getting the shaft at every turn. “In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2007, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.6% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.7%. ...  In terms of types of financial wealth, the top one percent of households have 38.3% of all privately held stock, 60.6% of financial securities, and 62.4% of business equity. The top 10% have 80% to 90% of stocks, bonds, trust funds, and business equity, and over 75% of non-home real estate. Since financial wealth is what counts as far as the control of income-producing assets, we can say that just 10% of the people own the United States of America.
     “In 2007, the average white household had 15 times as much total wealth as the average African-American or Latino household. If we exclude home equity from the calculations and consider only financial wealth, the ratios are in the neighborhood of 100:1. Extrapolating from these figures, we see that 70% of white families' wealth is in the form of their principal residence; for Blacks and Hispanics, the figures are 95% and 96%, respectively. And for all Americans, things are getting worse: as the projections to July 2009 by Wolff (2010) make clear, the last few years have seen a huge loss in housing wealth for most families, making the gap between the rich and the rest of America even greater, and increasing the number of households with no marketable assets from 18.6% to 24.1%.” Who Rules America Wealth Income and Power G. William Domhoff September 2005 updated September  2010 http://sociology.ucsc.edu/whorulesamerica/power/wealth.html
  These horrendous disparities in wealth and income are not by accident, they are by design. The oligopoly, the rich folks who own and run this country have influenced and bribed the politicians to the point the politicians knowingly facilitate the greatest wealth transfer  in the history of the world. Now that the mid-term elections are over, it will be business as usual as the money grubbers and cowards in Congress plot and plan to revamp Social Security in the name of fiscal responsibility. “President Obama announced the new  National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform on February 18 to address astronomical federal budget deficits. There has been considerable speculation that this commission will target current and future benefits for Social Security recipients to achieve its goals. Why would this be the case? We need look no further than the treatment of major retirement funds over the past 20 years to get the answer. When the mob needed cash, it looted the Teamsters retirement fund. When large corporations or government entities get in trouble, they effectively borrow from their employee retirement funds by delaying required payments or otherwise gaming the programs. This provides a source of ready cash, a quick vehicle to cover management errors, or jack up their bonuses.
    “Think of the Social Security Trust Fund (trust fund) as the most lucrative retirement fund in the country, the ultimate pot of gold, and you'll immediately understand why it is that for decades, big business has plundered the trust fund. How does this happen?”  The Money Party Deficit Reduction Scam and Social Security at www.opednews.com/articles/The-Money-Party-Deficit-Re-by-Michael-Collins-101109-476.html  
The Kleptocrats want to cut Social Security and ultimately privatize it so their Wall Street cohorts can get their hands on the money in the “Trust Fund”.  Just imagine how bad off we’d be now  if George W Bu$h has succeed in privatizing Social Security after he “won” in  2004. The elites plan to plunder and pillage the lower classes  would make their robber baron ancestors proud. The elites bribe the politicians to cut their own taxes while imposing draconian austerity conditions on the rest of us. It amounts to white collar crime, robbing and stealing in the name of fiscal responsibility, balancing the budget while bailing out the banksters and increasing their won aggravate wealth.  And this is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ll share more of their class warfare schemes in future articles.

US Austerity aka Structural Adjustments Part 2

                                               From The Ramparts
                                              Junious Ricardo Stanton
                                          Structural Adjustments Are Here Now

    “The rich, aided and abetted by the two wings of the Money Party, have bankrupted the government. The economic crisis is pulling back the curtain of democratic pretense to expose the brick wall of a callous system that ignores social needs to satisfy the whims of a parasitic ‘opulent minority.’ And  while ‘...Wall Street has extracted $13 trillion in bailouts just since October 2008, the thought of raising taxes on wealth to pay just $1 trillion over an entire decade for Social Security or health insurance is deemed a crisis that would lead Wall Street to shut down the economy.’ Wall Street is demanding that governments around the world makeup for the profligacy of the financial sector by taking what little they left to their victims through higher taxes and slashing or eliminating social programs. This is the basis of the global financial "crisis." It's the mechanism of corporate colonization coming home to roost. This time the US is the economic colony du jour. The middle class in America is being crushed and brushed off the economic banquet table like crumbs, while wealth continues to shift to the ‘opulent minority’ waiting at the top of the wealth pyramid, calmly sipping mint juleps as they arrange all the repression they'll need to put down potential unrest. Deja vu. We're right back where we were when King George III and the British East India Company were in charge.”  Social Inequality in America: Widening Income Disparities. Workhouse Nation
Vi Rensal http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=18281

    Last week we pointed out the US economic crisis is part of a criminal global banking scheme  whereby bribed politicians, financial thugs and phoney “economic scholars” who shill for the banksters induce governments to get themselves into massive debt, while they surreptitiously collapse the financial system, then force the taxpayers to ante up to pay for it. The goal is to rob  us of all our assets, leave us economically anemic, in debt up the wazo then steal the infrastructure for pennies on the dollar to complete the heist.  Unlike during the 1930's when FDR came to the rescue of the farmers, factory owners and home owners, today  there is no hero coming to our aid. Obama has been exposed as a hoax and dud and he is done nothing to help the little guy. The populous movement is impotent. The country is too dumbed down, distracted, disunited and discombobulated to realize what’s going on. All Joe and Jane Sixpack, Pookie and Shananay know is they are barely keeping their heads above water or they are drowning in a sea of debt.  They are not alone. So are most states, county and local municipalities.
And the federal government is the worst offender of all. “Falling property values result in lower property taxes to cities. As a result, cities are beginning to declare bankruptcy as they find themselves unable to pay fixed costs such as pensions promised to retired police, fire fighters and other municipal employees. States are slashing their budgets and asking the federal government for help as tax revenues decline. However, tax revenues are declining for the federal government as well, with a big hit coming with the 2008 tax year when capital gains are replaced by capital losses, plus declining income taxes due to business losses and rising unemployment.
    U.S. corporations are being manipulated into bankruptcy so they can dump their pension plan obligations onto the taxpayer. Upon emerging from bankruptcy, these companies are better able to compete with other companies around the world that do not carry these burdens. However, it is unlikely that the coming generation of taxpayers will be able to pay all the obligations that it will inherit. The Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC) has had a deficit each year since 2002. Revenues to all levels of government are declining, and the costs of the unfunded social safety nets are just beginning to soar.” Is The US Economy Teetering On The Brink of Collapse http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/Ldebtclock.htm
The economic crisis is forcing many local governments to sell off their assets: public property, toll roads, bridges and buildings just to keep their lights on. This is exactly what the IMF World Bank and other international vampires demand of third world countries when they set them up for economic ruin. Read the book Confessions of An Economic Hitman by John Perkins to learn how it works. What we are experiencing in the US is the international money changers doing the same thing to Europe and the US.  This is getting closer to home. Last year New jersey governor Jon Corzine actually proposed selling a toll road and Pennsylvania contemplated selling its turnpike. “As it turns out, the Pennsylvania Turnpike deal almost went through, only to be killed by the state legislature, but there were others just like it that did go through, most notably the sale of all the parking meters in Chicago to a consortium that included the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, from the United Arab Emirates. There were others: A toll highway in Indiana. The Chicago Skyway. A stretch of highway in Florida. Parking meters in Nashville, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and other cities. A port in Virginia. And a whole bevy of Californian public infrastructure projects, all either already leased or set to be leased for fifty or seventy-five years or more in exchange for one-off lump sum payments of a few billion bucks at best, usually just to help patch a hole or two in a single budget year.” Our cash-strapped country is auctioning off its highways, ports and even parking meters, finding eager buyers in the Middle East By  Matt Taibbi Rolling Stone Magazine
     “What are financial markets? And why must every country be at their mercy? A financial market is anyplace the super-rich invest their money. It can be done through a bank, hedge fund, or a private equity firm, etc. The rich demand that their investments are safe and therefore are especially “skittish” at the slightest hint of inflation or other economic distress. The rich who dominate financial markets advocate only one solution to balancing budgets: reducing or eliminating social programs. They ignore the other solution— a massive public works project— because it directly affects them in a negative way: raising taxes on the wealthy. This raises another issue. The investors who control financial markets know that a day of reckoning is coming: the massive debt that was pushing forward the world economy for years needs to be paid back, and those who own the banks don’t want the responsibility. Better for millions of workers to sacrifice social services, pensions, wages, etc., than for thousands of rich investors to be taxed.” Stimulus or Austerity The People vs The Banks http://novakeo.com/?p=7361
 Of course the money changers don’t want to pay any more taxes than they have to so we will foot the bills and bite the bullet as they scale back our safety nets, steal our savings and reduce us to peons. “There will be no option but to find ways to increase revenues and decrease payments for Social Security, Medicare and the PBGC. In the years ahead Social Security and Medicare are projected to be underfunded by many trillions of dollars. These numbers assume the economy continues growing at the same rate as it did in the debt-stimulated past. How likely is this?  Insurance companies and private pension plans expect a certain return on their equity, bonds and real estate investments in order to fund annuities and pensions. If expected investment returns do not materialize, these companies will be unable to meet their obligations. Defined benefit pension plans may soon be unavailable. In their place will be defined contribution pension plans. You put your money in, but there is no way of knowing what you will receive. With this type of pension plan there is a great incentive to supplement your pension with additional savings... The $2 trillion social security trust funds were ‘invested’ in U.S. government treasury bonds and spent by the government. When we say that the social security program is unfunded, this is another way of saying it is likely the coming generation will be unable pay the many trillions of dollars of debt and other liabilities that are presently being accumulated by the U.S. government. A great danger of massive borrowing by the U.S. government in order to bail out the economy is that the credit worthiness of the government itself is declining. The end result of continuing on this path could be a massive default of government debt. Before this happens, however, you can expect the government to confiscate any assets it can get its hands on (Roosevelt confiscated all gold held by Americans, Argentina recently confiscated the assets of private pension funds), plus hyperinflation and restrictions on the movement of money out of the country.” http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/Ldebtclock.htm
        “Our economy is designed to ‘increase injustice, inequality and exploitation,’ in order to perpetuate the dominion of the ‘opulent minority’ over us. And the deregulation of every sector of the US market was a deliberate policy decision by these stunningly insane, sociopathic, genocidal maniacs, who kept our economy alive by consumers more debt/credit in order to enrich themselves with the interest payments. Now the economy is getting intravenous bailouts of taxpayer money while it languishes on life support. And how low can they go? Check this out. ‘The United States is one of the few countries that allow the sale of human blood plasma for profits. Across the country, countless workers are selling the yellowy substance found in their blood to the pharmaceutical giants of Wall Street.’”
This gives a  whole new meaning to the words vampire and leech. The recent elections will make matters worse. “In a comment that is particularly significant coming on the eve of a long trip to Asia, including a G20 economic summit in South Korea, Obama said, ‘The most important contest we face is not the contest between Democrats and Republicans. In this century, the most important competition we face is between America and our economic competitors around the world.’ This suggests an appeal to the Republicans to join forces for an aggressive program of economic nationalism to promote the interests of American corporations against their international rivals. A key element in the Obama administration’s campaign for ‘export-led’ growth is to lower the wage levels of American workers so that American corporations can become more competitive in the world market.” http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=    In other words don’t look for any change or help from Obomba or the government. Their plan is to lower our wages even further! Their agenda is to help the corporations make us poorer and more destitute.     Is this our destiny, is this what we have to look forward to? Not necessarily. We can best improve our personal and collective lot by getting out of personal debt no matter who long it takes. The best way to do that is by creating a realistic budget, save as much as you can and change your lifestyle from debt based consumer peonage to one of economic freedom. We’ll discuss other options in future articles.

The Coming US Austerity aka Structural Adjustments Part 1

                                                                     From the Ramparts
                                                                 Junious Ricardo Stanton
                                               The Coming Austerity AKA US Structural Adjustments Part 1

        “Since 1980, the richest Americans have seen their incomes quadruple, while for the ‘lowest’ 90% of us, incomes fell. The average wage is lower today than it was in the 1970s, while productivity has risen almost 50%.  In 1983 middle class debt held at 67% of income. In 2007, middle class debt had gone over the falls to 157% of income. (3) In 1950 the ratio of the average executive's paycheck to the average worker's was about 30 to 1. Since 2000 that average has ranged from 300 to 500 to one. ‘As of late 2009, the number of billionaires soared from 793 to 1,011, and their total fortunes from $2.4 trillion to $3.6 trillion. ... Despite the crisis, the list of billionaires has grown by 200 people and their aggregate capital has expanded by 50%. This may seem paradoxical but only at first glance. This result was predictable, if we recall how governments all over the world have dealt with the economic crisis.’ This is the result of a deliberate strategy, one Washington has executed many, many times, though usually in ‘Third World’  nations, by using ‘Free’ Trade Agreements (FTAs) and its front groups, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization. Purchased politicians plunge their countries into unsustainable debt. Under Structural Adjustment Programs (SAPs), national industries are sold to transnational corporations and privatized. Social programs are cut to the bone or eliminated altogether. Interest rates are ratcheted up and the economy collapses on itself like the World Trade Center while banks and corporate buzzards fight each other to pick the carcass clean.” Social Inequality in America: Widening Income Disparities.Workhouse Nation:Part One by Vi Ransel http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=1828

    The kleptocratic oligarchy that runs this country have decided they want it all; in their psychopathy  what’s theirs  is theirs and  what’s ours is theirs.  Their goal is to literally own the whole planet and reduce us to peons in bondage to them and their debt based system of servitude for the rest of our lives. Today in the US the wealth and income gaps between the super rich and the rest of us have never been higher, and the gap widens every day. “Wealth is equivalent to ‘net worth,’ which is equal to your assets minus your liabilities. Examples of assets include checking and savings accounts, vehicles, a home that you own, mutual funds, stocks and bonds, real estate, and retirement accounts. Examples of liabilities include a car loan, credit card balance, student loan, personal loan, mortgage, and other bills you still need to pay. Median net worth in 2007, the latest year for which figures are available, was $120,300. Half of American households had net worth greater than this figure, half had less. Net worth is even more unequal than income in the United States. In 2007, the latest year for which figures are available from the Federal Reserve Board, the richest 1% of U.S. households owned 33.8% of the nation’s private wealth. That’s more than the combined wealth of the bottom 90 percent. The top 1% also own 50.9% of all stocks, bonds, and mutual fund assets.  Retirement accounts like 401(k)s are more equally distributed. The top 1% owns only 14.5% of all retirement account assets, while the bottom 90% owns 40.5%.” http://extremeinequality.org/?page_id=8
           When you factor in race the numbers are even more glaring. “Since 1968, the year Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, the income gap between blacks and whites narrowed by just 3 cents on the dollar. In 2005 the median per capita income in the United States stood at $16,629 for blacks and $28,946 for whites. At this slow rate of progress, income equality will not be achieved for 537 years. These disparities remain shockingly wide, and especially evident when we examine the polarization of assets and wealth. The black home ownership rate, for instance, sits at 47 percent and the Latino at 49.7 percent, compared with 75 percent for whites. African-American families in the United States have a median net worth of $20,600, only 14.6 percent of the $140,700 median white net worth. The median net worth for Latino families is $18,600, only 13.2 percent of median white net worth. Between 1983 and 2004, the most recent year with official federal data available, median black and Latino wealth inched up from 7 percent to 10 percent of median white wealth. At this rate, wealth equality will not be attained for 634 years.” Racial Dimensions of Inequality http://extremeinequality.org/?page_id=23
      This is why the housing crisis is so devastating for people of color, it is wiping out the little equity and wealth we’ve accumulated. “The foreclosure crisis is exacerbating these wealth disparities by stripping away homes, one of  the most important assets in communities of color, at unprecedented rates. In 2009, 3.4 million homes were in foreclosure. A disproportionate share of the families impacted were people of color who were systematically targeted by the financial industry for predatory, subprime loans. In fact, over half of the mortgages to African-Americans in recent years were high-cost subprime loans, mostly to people who would have qualified for regular loans. While some legislation to address the foreclosure crisis has been passed, much of it has already been stripped of its teeth by powerful finance industry lobbyists, and hamstrung by lack of cooperation from big banks. As a result, these policies lack elements that are essential to
stemming the crisis, such as a moratorium on foreclosures, modification of bankruptcy rules,
and strong financial regulation”

    The banksters and fraudsters plan to gobble up our homes, businesses, savings, all the wealth of  working and “middle class” folks thus executing the greatest heist and transfer of wealth the world has ever seen. It is all part of their grand scheme to turn the US into a third world banana republic by co-opting the government , shipping factories and jobs overseas, siphoning of the people’s  wealth and leaving us with nothing but debt and lowered living standards. It sounds far fetched but its true. The US has always been ruled by a select cabal. The elites run the country for their benefit, they always have. 
      The banksters attempted to gobble up everything  once before in the 1930's. But Franklin Delano Roosevelt stepped and stopped them. In turn the banksters attempted to overthrow  his administration via a coup. See Wall Street’s Plot to Seize The White House: Facing the Corporate Roots of American Facism http://coat.ncf.ca/our_magazine/links/53/53-index.html  It was one of the few coups that failed. The attempt on Andrew Jackson’s life being the other.
      None of the plotters including George W. Bush’ grandfather, Prescott Bush, were indicted or went to jail. The blue bloods always get off. They and their heirs just waited and bided their time. They are accomplishing their plan now! But their plan doesn’t stop with the US, no it’s global, that’s why they call it globalization. We are seeing its’ affects not only in Africa, Asia and Latin America but in Europe too. That’s what the rioting in France, Greece and Eastern Europe is all about. The people are up in arms as the international banksters force them to bail out the insolvent banks, steal the people’s wealth by siphoning off their savings, gutting their social safety nets and gobbling up their resources for pennies on the dollar.  They have the audacity to call it austerity when it’s really grand theft. We’ll talk more about this in future articles.
