Rich vs. Poor

A Look At Class Warfare In America

Economic Warfare Is Nuking Middle Class; Retaliate Wisely
The Ultra-Rich Billionaires Are Getting Richer; 1/6 of U.S. Is Poverty Stricken
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 081711

Last year I wrote an article titled "Class Warfare In America: The Effort To Destroy The Middle Class." If you haven't read it by now, I sincerely encourage you to do so. Much research went into the article, with much pain coming out. The information uncovered was staggering to me, as it will be to you.

It started out by stating that since 1992, the bottom 90% of Americans have had their incomes rise by a mere 13%, compared with an outlandish increase of 399% for the top 400. Damn near a 400% increase for the richest 400! That is perversely obscene on many levels, especially so when you realize that these are not mere multi-millionaires that profited heavily under Bush-Cheney, it was the multi-billionaires! These are people who are already insanely rich beyond most people's wildest imaginations, yet their yearly incomes skyrocketed into the stratosphere and far beyond any fathomable moral good conscience.

As a direct result of this rise in income, the article also revealed that under the Bush II tax cuts for the wealthy, the richest 400 Americans doubled their personal wealth, while at the same time cutting their tax rate in half. After taxes (if they bothered to pay any) and their gaudy living expenses, they still managed to pack enough away to raise their net worth by double. Think about that for a moment. You're a multi-billionaire worth tens of billions and you double your overall wealth in less than eight short years of the Bush regime. Some reports even claim that they tripled their wealth in just five years. That is a staggering revelation, one that is quite hard to comprehend for those in the world who struggle to make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck.

To add insult to injury, since the 2nd great depression began under Bush in 2008, these same mega-wealthy rich fat-cats have actually increased their wealth again! The S&P index shows that the top 500 U.S. corporations increased their holdings by nearly 60% since the economic collapse of 2008. (see story above) How is that possible you say? Well, let's put it this way, if this was a casino and someone pulled off profits like that, they would be taken aside privately and seriously beaten for gaming the house!

What has happened here folks is an orchestrated economic collapse, with the top 400+ billionaires favored in the scam. The game has been rigged against us for their benefit. They're running the table, while we've fallen under it. All of the financial rules and the formerly high-risk monetary odds have been conscientiously stacked in their favor. It's a no-loss game for them, and a no-win situation for the rest of us. In light of the numbers, try to argue to the contrary.

These pariahs of extreme wealth lobbied against universal healthcare for the rest of us, holding the health debate hostage until they were guaranteed that their game would get to go on, the continuance of the Bush tax cuts for the richest. When it was all said and done, they politically blackmailed and engineered the system to get what they wanted most, more unnecessary wealth, all the while we were deprived of simple basic healthcare. (And the plans they've presented in order to stop HR-676 are appalling.)

It didn't just stop there either. The assault also targeted unemployment insurance, mortgage defaults, credit card relief, and all social programs ranging from A to Z. It was a thorough and blatant mugging of the middle class, not to mention a death knell knife in the back for the lower class. It was calculated, cold blooded economic murder.

The fix is in for the richest 1% folks. If you haven't figured that out by now, please, put down the remote for your TV, quit watching "Dancing With The Stars," and recognize the facts in front of you. We have been fleeced! This is the exact same scam that the ultra-rich pulled on the U.S. in the 1920s when JP Morgan started his infamous run on the banks by panicking the public with a rumor about insolvent banks. Morgan was said to be nothing more than a foot soldier for the greater powers that be that lay behind the scenes, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and other ultra-wealthy bankers.

The rich orchestrated the first great depression and now they've done it again, pulling the same ruse on overly entertained, media trusting, politically divided Americans who were too ignorant of the game being played in front of them. Americans get some of the blame for being naive and far too trusting, but the bulk of the duplicity goes to bought off politicians and Wall Street executives, as well as a complicit corporate media that led the unsuspecting and overly trusting citizenry down a dark alley for their mugging.

If you're too lazy to look up the facts, thankfully there are others who have done some research for you. Once again, please read "Class Warfare In America: The Effort To Destroy The Middle Class." When you're done with that, please read an even greater effort from David DeGraw titled, "The Economic Elite Vs. The People of the United States of America." The latter lays out a very well articulated and thoroughly researched report on how bad things truly are, and the fact that they're about to get worse.

People claim there's a revolution coming when the rest of America finally wakes up to realize their dire circumstances, but that's a dicey road to travel that has once again been methodically laid out for us. As with the protests in Egypt and London, nothing good will come of violence against the system, unless of course the military is going to stand at our side, or 300-million Americans all rise up en masse. Since most are still politically divided, that is sadly not going to happen. That fact in itself makes this a whole different ballgame and the endeavor becomes one of attrition.

Know that plans have already been laid out to suppress an expected revolt from the people. These criminals of wealth learned well from the French Revolution, and they're prepared and well armed this time around with non-lethal weaponry, as well as tactical conventional weapons. Over 20,000 battle trained soldiers have been stationed in the U.S. to fight against "we the people," an act expressly forbidden by previous posse comitatus laws, but those laws have already been circumvented while overly entertained Americans were watching their TV reality shows, all the while their reality was being rewritten and stolen from underneath them.

So tread carefully when talk of the revolution comes. As in Egypt and London, the police state has already been prepared and is ready to roll out against us. Violence, unless it comes in overwhelming proportion, will only serve to empower them, while subduing any confrontational effort. The media and crooked politicians will label the uprisings as mob thuggery and that will be the end of that.

Do we need a revolution? Some would say, "absolutely." Let's put it this way instead... we deserve the "change" that we were promised. If our elected officials refuse to honor their campaign contract with America, then job one is the removal of those individuals from office through the ballot box.

This next election we need to step out of the purposefully designed left-right political trap that has been used to ensnare and divide us. We need to come together and leave the Democrat-Republican political structure behind, in favor of new leaders who are not beholden to the heavily moneyed "powers that be." This means that you must now do your homework and get involved in the process, scrutinizing the candidates, and for once doing some background research into who funds their campaigns. It means we all need to make wiser decisions in who we elect and entrust with the keys for our future.

Lastly, learn that you need to step away from the corporate media that has consciously been working to deceive you and start thinking and reasoning on your own, rather than being spoon-fed your views on life and politics.

This didn't happen overnight folks, and barring a 100-million-plus mass uprising, it won't end overnight either. Violence will only empower them. Be smart. Know who your true enemies are and work to free yourself from them. Real healing only begins once you recognize the sickness and disease. As with most healing, there is initial pain before the healing process begins. We must first recognize our illness, the powers that be that control our way of life, then take methodical, well thought out steps to get out of their grasp, without aggravating an already festering deep wound.

Be smart, be informed, be patient, be courageous... be together as one, but do not become emotionally aggravated so that you lose sight of the first five precepts in this statement.

Go ahead and be mad about what has happened, but let your anger fuel your resolve, and don't let your hatred rule your reason. This may very well sound trite, but it is an undeniable truth to embrace. Gandhi would agree.

Cool heads prevail in any fight. We win together as one. Remember, united we stand, but divided we fall. Stand together, tighten your belt and get ready for round two of economic warfare, the people awakened.

Truth, courage, rational thinking and solidarity are our weapons. This time we fight the war on our terms. Once you know your enemy, the battle is much more focused, with the objective much clearer.

As much as it utterly and truly pains me to quote a misquote from George W. Bush, "Fool me once, fool me twice...won't get fooled again."
