The Frightening “Obama Bubble” Statistics…WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

As the DOW hits all-time high territories, ZeroHedge gives a jarring compare/contrast of what the world looked like the last time we were here – and how much worse we are NOW than we were THEN right before the collapse…

(The massive pumping of low interest rate dollars to prop up the false economy has a growing number of economists warning things are about to get very ugly very fast – and we are now in far worse shape to handle a strong economic disruption than we were before the repeated failures of Barack Obama.  The only question that will then remain is to ask if Barack Obama was merely incredibly incompetent – or a tool put in place to fail exactly as he has…)


Now check out this compare/contrast from showing the American economy right before the 2008 collapse as it compares to the American economy now.  The country is MUCH-MUCH weaker now than it was then…

    • Are there any comparison’s available to the economic activity now and prior to the collapse of the Great Depression. I have for quite a few years been watching all the things that I was taught in school were what brought on the Great Depression happening again, the rise of a few monopolies controlling both prices and eliminating competition, people using money that only exists on paper to invest in the stock market – things that I was taught in school had been regulated and would not happen again, Those things are everywhere in our current economy except that many of these companies are now multinational, which would be even worse.

    • bill o'rights
    • Absolutely.

      Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

      Just had several pallets of emergency food rations delivered…I suggest everyone else do the same.

      If you’re looking for guns and ammunition, that window of opportunity has nearly closed…best bet is to pick up a cheap Moisin Nagant and bulk 7.62x54R rounds (while they last…inventory is nearly gone). A friend just spoke with an executive at Federal Ammunition who indicates their backlog on .223 ammunition is through to the end of 2018. For the record, Federal manufactures nearly 3 million rounds of .223 ammunition per day.

      Do not forget water filtration and stock up on toilet paper, rubbing alcohol, fuel, etc.

      And remember:

      If martial law calls for gun confiscation, do not fire on the confiscators but do not release your arms either, and hide them elsewhere and hide them well.

      Think I’m nuts? Soon, you won’t.

      The Bolsheviks just ordered another 2,700 armored vehicles for DHS and contracted with Heckler and Koch in order to acquire more small arms and replacement parts for them.

      • ShainS
      • I believe that any program of gun confiscation will divide the U.S. military (the patriots who’ll refuse to participate vs. the traitors who will) and start a civil war.

        Probably a good idea (thanks, I hadn’t considered that option) to hide your guns and ammo initially rather than commit suicide-by-government-thug …

    • The DOW hit bottom in July 1932… it would take 25 years to regain what it lost

      In June 1929, the cumulative national debt was $17 billion. Up until that point in time, the U.S. only went into debt during wartime. Moreover, once those wars ended, the government’s first priority was to pay off the debt. When the depression started several months later, the government was not saddled with servicing a huge debt burden, as the debt was only about 16% of the GDP

      We didn’t have debt, entitlements, unemployment was reported in real numbers, and debt/GDP (including unfunded liabilities) is above 500%… something our past presidents would have been ashamed to saddle up with… our grandparents would havee had our representatives for lunch if they even heard of such lack of stewardship. Oh yea, and our dollar was backed by gold, today it’s backed by ink owned by those real wealthy 1% sitting safely inside the beltway of DC.

      Read more… we’er in worse shape now then we were then.

    • I might add, don’t look at the market as real either… a sound investor would spread their riskvesting in both stocks AND bonds… bond sales are at historic lows since the fed has decided that it would be free to “lend” money.

      People are short-term investing and re-investing their profits to make back what they’ve lost… and they are smart enough not to invest in vehicles that have no ROI. Instead, they will move the gains earned in the stock market into commodoties… oil, silver, nat gas, etc.

      Oh yea, and did you see this happy news?

      How distressing… looks like democrats actually believe conservatives and their message for fiscal responsibility are really, really evil?

    • Essa
    • And just last week the Democrats were complaining about having to look at the National Debt Clock on Capital Hill.

      All these political games are a cobbled together mask to cover the truth of the coming collapse, which explains the 1.6 billion bullets and the purchase of 2700 light armored tanks by DHS, all to be used against us.

      Apparently the “secret” drone program has also begun in earnest as just yesterday an airline pilot coming in for landing saw a what he described as a drone near JFK airport. The FAA is going to investigate? Sure they are, right into a news blackout.

      Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised:

      The Obama administration denied an appeal for flexibility in lessening the sequester’s effects, with an email this week appearing to show officials in Washington that because they already had promised the cuts would be devastating, they now have to follow through on that.

      In the email sent Monday by Charles Brown, an official with the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service office in Raleigh, N.C., Mr. Brown asked “if there was any latitude” in how to spread the sequester cuts across the region to lessen the impacts on fish inspections.

      He said he was discouraged by officials in Washington, who gave him this reply: “We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”

      “This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the Sequester cuts for political gain,” said Rep. Tim Griffin, Arkansas Republican.

      Mr. Brown, the official who sent the email and who is eastern regional director for wildlife services at APHIS, didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday afternoon seeking comment.

      APHIS is an agency within the Agriculture Department, and on Tuesday department Secretary Tom Vilsack was challenged on the email at a House committee hearing by Rep. Kristi Noem, who said she hoped the department wouldn’t tie agencies’ hands.

      Mr. Vilsack said he hadn’t seen the email, but said agencies are supposed to be trying to find ways to manage the impact of the cuts.

      “If we have flexibility, we’re going to try to use it to make sure we use sequester in the most equitable and least disruptive way,” the secretary testified. “There are some circumstances, and we’ve talked a lot about the meat inspection, where we do not have that flexibility because there are so few accounts.”

      The administration earlier had warned that supplies of beef, pork and poultry could drop this year because slaughterhouse inspectors will have to be furloughed, and under federal law meat can’t be processed without inspectors present.

      Ms. Noem told Mr. Vilsack the email made it sound like the administration was sacrificing flexibility in order to justify dire predictions.

      “I’m hopeful that isn’t an agenda that’s been put forward,” the South Dakota Republican congresswoman told Mr. Vilsack.

      The $85 billion in sequesters began Friday, and have hit most of the federal government, where employees will face furloughs.

      But even amid the cuts, APHIS is still hiring new employees and interns.

      Since Sunday the agency has posted 24 help-wanted ads including 22 student internships, one ad seeking a clerk in a New York office, and one ad seeking three “insect production workers” to grow bollworms in Phoenix.

      Democrats pull out race card in sequester game

      Congressional Black Caucus members, who are all Democrats, flipped out the race card in the talks on the sequester Monday and said minorities will be unfairly and disproportionately impacted.

      “Sequestration will impact everyone, but it will have a particularly harmful effect on communities of color who were hit first and worst by the great recession, and have yet to significantly feel the effects of the recovery,” said Rep. Barbara Lee, in The Hill.

      The CBC also said women would be disproportionately hurt by the $85 billion planned cuts, The Hill reports. The reason? More women and minorities hold government jobs, CBC members said. And more will be hurt by cuts to unemployment insurance.

      “African-Americans are more likely to work in the public sector, where the jobs are going to be cut,” said Del. Donna Christensen, who represents the Virgin Islands, in The Hill. “We already have the highest unemployment, and will be severely hurt by the reduction in unemployment benefits.”

    • Bill, good to hear from you. Thanks for the advice. Hide them well? Meaning? Can you give an example?

      This ….from a once armed radical New Black Panther who took over a building…while armed at Columbia…

      Eric Holder: Drone strikes against Americans on US soil are legal

      Attorney General Eric Holder can imagine a scenario in which it would be constitutional to carry out a drone strike against an American on American soil, he wrote in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

      “It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder replied in a letter yesterday to Paul’s question about whether Obama “has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial.”

      Paul condemned the idea. “The U.S. Attorney General’s refusal to rule out the possibility of drone strikes on American citizens and on American soil is more than frightening – it is an affront the Constitutional due process rights of all Americans,” he said in a statement.

      Holder noted that Paul’s question was “entirely hypothetical [and] unlikely to occur,” but cited the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as the type of incidents that might provoke such a response.
      “Were such an emergency to arise, I would examine the particular facts and circumstances before advising the President on the scope of his authority,” he concluded.

      Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, an attorney and Judiciary Committee member, told The Washington Examiner last month that the drone policy so far outlined by the administration is too vague.

      “That has the potential to swallow the rule,” Lee said after the drone program white paper was leaked. “If you’re going to regard somebody as presenting an imminent threat of an attack on the U.S. simply because you have concluded that they are an ‘operational leader’ or they are involved in planning an attack in one way or another, you find yourself giving way to much discretion to the government.”

      Lee said that the White House should release the formal legal analysis underpinning the drone program. “We know that in some instances where the government has released its legal analysis, it gets it wrong,” he said.

    • I must give a warning to all those who post on FB. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST. And I mean it sincerely. I don’t want anyone to have the DHS knocking on your doors. Be prudent in what you post!!!PLEASE.

    • M. Simon
    • “The administration earlier had warned that supplies of beef, pork and poultry could drop this year because slaughterhouse inspectors will have to be furloughed, and under federal law meat can’t be processed without inspectors present.”

      A few large campaign donations will fix that.

      Don’t go with “everything will shut down” – go with we will become Italy.

      • Randall
      • We’re not going to become Italy. Italy has never been one country, so the dissolution of the Italian Republic would actually be historically normal.

        If the dollar gives way, we’re going to become Venezuela. A giant swarm of prison gangs ruling the streets, law being only a flimsy pretense.

      Those are even after cooking the books and politically motivated altering of the methodologies to measure such things.
      Remember, the ‘Let It Burn’ article? What this crowd isn’t taking into consideration is, Cloward-Piven or IMF Riot entails is to ‘I breakie, I fixie’. It means that starting the firestorm is the desired catalyst to in the name of Continuity of Government to transform government and thus society to its wishes. This is why over 90% of non-conformist ideas and actions or otherwise dissent and dissidents are deemed respectively terrorist or potential terrorist activities. These kind of governments and governance are Command-Control and Submit-Obey. It’s considered a win-win; those who resist are made examples of while those who submit are mildly rewarded to encourage a specific reaction and behavior.
      Essentially, people really need to make an non-illusionist decision as the choices are:
      1. Resist that may or may not cost you and/or your loved one’s lives.
      2. Submit and obey. This includes if the officials want repudiations; you are expected to give it (this is people who you believe are not slaves er human capital and resources of that government), your loved ones (no property rights means you no longer possess ownership of your body and thus its works. If a TSA goon likes you or your loved ones, you are expected to like and feel honored as a result), your defenses (meaning your refusal or non-compliance will lead to you being made an example of).

      If you look at the actions of government, it made its decision and prepared accordingly. Has anyone else?

    • Great article UM. Those numbers are insane scary.

      Are you watching all of the drone news? A lot of what WHI told you months ago seems to be finally coming to the surface inc. Holder saying it’s ok to use drones to kill Americans in America. I sent out about ten of your insider book collection to family and friends and told them to READ IT!!! Lol. Keep up the good work man. And when is the novel coming out?? Haven’t seen a teaser of it in a while.
