39% of US children spend at least one year in poverty, 75% of US Black children. Demanding arrests and OBVIOUS economic reforms yet?

hat tip: What Really Happened, Everything Finance, CBS MoneyWatch

1-minute video of three former US Treasury Secretaries in grandiose laughter over poverty (using the euphemism “income inequality”):

Urban Institute reports that nearly two of every five American children spend at least one year in poverty before age 18, with a stunning 75% of US Black children in poverty for at least one year.

CBS interviewed the study author, Caroline Ratcliffe:

“It did surprise us. When we look at the annual number of children in poverty, it’s at about 20 percent, and we know children cycle into and out of poverty, so we knew it would be higher, but double is startling.”

Importantly, it’s likely an official poverty line of $24,250 yearly income for a family of four is a ridiculous understatement of the income to meet basic economic needs, given US “leadership” lies about economic data of employment and inflation to change definitions that result in ridiculous understatements. For example, when unemployment today is counted the same way as during the Great Depression, today’s statistics of over 20% unemployment for the last six years is worse.

Analysis: The mathematical mechanics of creating what we use for money as debt owed to private banks is the Orwellian opposite of a “monetary system.” When we create what we use for money as a negative number, these mechanics can only increase total debt. A predictable consequence of this Monopoly-type game over time is that assets accumulate to fewer and fewer players.

These players who created this game of calling debt as “money” while claiming this is “good for the country” and even “the best economy in the world” are literal asset-holes. This is fundamental criminal fraud with annual damages in the trillions of dollars, with billions of humans suffering, and millions of people dying.

The only sane response under a limited government, what 95% of Americans believe in and stand for, is to arrest these .01% criminal “leaders.”

There is an alternative structure for full employment, zero debt, falling prices, and the best infrastructure we can imagine. Accelerating technology can and should provide an economy of:

  • more personal freedom from labor,
  • more beauty in infrastructure and nature,
  • greater joy in our freedom to create and explore our beautiful, powerful, and diverse virtues (something like “resource-based economics” as researched by The Venus Project).

We know what we have is in contrived Orwellian opposition of what leadership should create. We know that what we receive is literal criminal fraud:

I could go on to literally ~100 areas of crucial concern.

Please understand that I represent likely hundreds of thousands of professionals making factual claims with objective evidence anyone with a high school-level of education can verify. For example, the June 2015 Seizing an Alternative conference (and here, videos here) at the Claremont Colleges had hundreds of professionals presenting data and solutions in over 80 areas of speciality. My paper and videos for this conference is here.

The purpose of education since the “Age of Enlightenment” is to present facts for public verification, and to seize the victory of refuting lies by would-be dictators, especially when such lies are obvious and of crucial public importance.

The path forward as we build a critical mass of humans recognizing the Emperor’s New Clothes truth is to demand arrests and solutions, obviously:

  1. ARRESTS: the first responsible action upon recognizing massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions is to demand that law enforcement and military enact arrests of criminal leaders to stop the crimes and begin unwinding the truth of what happened in Earth’s tragic-comedy (four-part article series with videos on arrests as the obvious citizen response).
  2. SOLUTIONS: the .01% with corporate media have suppressed solutions documented beginning with Benjamin Franklin how government can abundantly operate without taxes: monetary and credit reform allow the public to have near-instant prosperity: full-employment, zero public deficits and debt, the best infrastructure we can imagine, falling prices, and release of public TRILLIONS held in “rainy day” accounts. Full documentation here.

We know for certain that until these .01% “leaders” are stopped, all we’ll have is ongoing lies, crimes, and immense suffering. The Founders of the US were keenly aware of the historical failures for people to live in a society free from oligarchs. Greece devolved into an empire demanding tribute, then fell to civil war. Rome devolved into a ridiculous tragic-comedy of corrupt empire, then fell. The American Founders admonished us in the strongest language possible that we face those same risks.

If the 99.99% is to win this time, arrests will happen from:

  1. Growing demand for arrests from those of us sufficiently educated that the facts prove obvious crimes. This is as easy as being the person in the Emperor’s New Clothes pointing-to and stating what anyone can see who looks.
  2. Law enforcement and military’s organic responses to honor their Oaths to arrest literal criminal psychopaths (and here) who ongoingly commit Crimes against Humanity.

    Good call on “income inequality” being a euphemism for “poverty”.

    • Brockland A.T.

      For sure. Doublespeak has become so pervasive its hard to remember what straight talk is. Or was.

  • hvaiallverden

    I stopped the coments upon the eCONomy, nobody bother to educate them selfs this day, mentaly dead and gone for decades ago, and now we live in a world where ignorance isnt a bliss anymore, ignorance is the sole reason for our downfall.

    Yea, a 2500 km long coustline country streching from artic to the subartic zsone.
    And we are been damed and scorn.
    And all we gett is insane politicis from people living in our capital, people whom dont care about others as long their own perverted reality is the norm.

    The insanity grown dayli.
    The economy is crashing, I know it will be ugly and that fast.
    And the refugie so called crsisi, is the final nail in the coffin.

      Peace, hvaiallverden. The game is still on; “The Emperor’s New Clothes” lie exists almost perfectly until it is exposed and ended in moments.

      To the best you can, enjoy the game with the most love and virtue you can imagine 🙂

    They could stay in school. Loose the gangster culture, quit the knock out game and wait to have kids and then get themselves a job.

    • Carl_Herman

      Blaming the victims, Marsha?

      So, 40% of US children are gangsters, violent, and somehow not waiting to have their own children??? Hey, just thinkin’, those elementary school aged gangsters are just beyond help if they don’t lose that gangsta thug life, am I right?

      Hey Marsha: better choose carefully which side you want to support: the .01% parasites who also blame the victims, or those of us pointing to obvious solutions for a brighter future that’s great beyond anything we can imagine.

      It’s not a hard choice, Marsha.

      But it’s all your to make.

      • Brockland A.T.

        Marsha is correct insofar as too many children and young adults across the racial spectrum no longer respect respectability and responsible behavior.

        Its seen for what its not; a sham to be defied and discarded, rather than the mask of psychopath and sociopath learned from healthy responsible people to imitate them and operate in those circles.

        Parasites in nature do the same thing; circumvent prey defense and predation with emulative camoflage.

        The motivations behind her conclusion may be suspect, but the conclusion is not incorrect.

    • Brockland A.T.

      You sound so square.

      Black culture lost the psychological war to whiteness a long time ago, back when rap music, once a music of genuine protest, was turned by CIA/Hollywood into a gangsta cult of empowerment.

      Being gangster is part of white culture too, but white people have many more avenues to economic empowerment than crime. Including legalized crime.

      The traditional white gangster image is kind of quaint and retro, even bikers are getting old. White people were also taken in by the allure of black gangsta empowerment and many young white men sought to emulate rap culture and made it a worldwide cultural phenomenon. However, rap became a poison shorn from its roots and served the most destructive elements of America’s white social elite (who weren’t particularly loyal to whites either, but the history of whiteness is a whole other post).




      What once was a music of motivation, protest and innovation of black culture, was turned into indolent faux-indie pop music, simply by rewarding black artists willing to promote that message. It was all part of the racist white establishment’s war against blacks, of which illegal drugs played no small part. Black and white rebellion against social injustice was played on itself, no longer targeting the parasitical elite but tricked into serving it as an act of ‘rebellion’, for which there were dangled tangible social and economic rewards.




  • Glenn Festog

    Remember Johnson’s “War on Poverty”? It’s worked as well as Nixon’s “War on Drugs”, soon to be supplanted as the world’s most dangerous legislative act by the War on Terror. “It’s for the children.” is the new “Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer” for the NWO.

  • Greg Burton

    Just the financial part of the plan to slice and dice, destroy America from within. De-industrialize America, depopulate it, subordinate it to the global oligarchy’s Satanic New World Order.

    US citizens wouldn’t begin to know, have the information made available to them, to educate them that it was the private banking cartel, really from the beginnings of the American Republic, that has been behind its demise, its recolonization.

    Publicly owned money, mandated by the constitution, is the root of the revolution you’re talking about. Lincoln had it right, with his “greenbacks”, but he was killed for it.

    7 in 10 Americans say people in politics cannot be trusted. The same group also calls the political system dysfunctional. Is 2016 set to be an historic election because American voters are finally rejecting the two-party system?
