Pride- The Deadly American Vice

Pride Cometh Before A Fall

by WJW Revere

I owe a debt of gratitude to some family members, former teachers and friends for their acute insight on why American greatness. They are the impetus for this essay.

You see, when it comes to honest critique from me, ie candid discussion of today’s foreign policy, domestic policy, treatment of its citizens, living standards (declining), such speech is verboten.

So to summarize my family’s views, we should emulate unquestioning citizenship, profess our superiority ad nausium, and watch our problems become inconsequential as we chant, “USA! USA!, smile and bend over to pay our 33% tax to cover Federal Reserve debt interest. We should never question authority, our nations faults, or our present suicide course but obey propoganda and be grateful for our benevolent politicians and business leaders, or our masters as it were .

I’ve been told that if I don’t love my country, maybe I should leave. An interesting proposition, considering that, just since 2000 GW Bush era, 35% of the purchasing power of the US dollar has permanently eroded.

I can say I’m thankful our own Founding Fathers didn’t see fit to leave when receiving the same suggestion from those representing the status quo! As they represented only 3% of America’s populace, by that same logic, they should have just left. Instead, when England came for their arms, they waged a long and bloody battle, to foster real change, as they saw fit.

I was told in our conversation that the Dow Jones is breaking new highs, and this points to unmitigated economic strength, even though its obvious to most, that when the Federal Reserve prints enough money ( I mean fiat paper), something’s going to go up.

Some people don’t understand that its not our stock market gaining value, it is our money that is losing value. The last time the Dow Jones average was at 14,000, gold was at $700 an ounce. Gold is now $1600 an ounce. Is this a real “high”, or a debasement of our currency?

How many unsustainable bubbles does the Fed have to blow, before some of you buy a clue? Don’t you realize that each bubble becomes more dangerous to the actual health of the economy? Production is sound economic wealth. Printing paper ad infinitum is not.

Funneling money to corporations and banks, stealing money from the poor and the middle classes, printing huge amounts of money, causing inflation, is not “generosity”, nor is it American.

But, I digress.

Some of the “freedoms” I’m most grateful for are: Israeli Ben Gurion airport-style, TSA molestation tactics performed on our families at the airports (young and old alike); the NSA and Amdocs spying on every American’s keystrokes and phone calls; the 38% income tax imposed on the wealthiest Americans; all “voluntary” taxes, codes, statutes; the NDAA and Patriot Acts; the DHS checkpoints; the overseas drone assassinations, including entire wedding parties; and our declining living standards, to name a few. Surely we are the better for the personal “freedoms” these sacrifices bring, right?

I’m told time and again that we have it pretty good here in America, and I suppose this is true. Those on the Titanic also had it pretty good when they departed from Belfast, Ireland, before tragedy befell them, whether by sheer bad luck, or something more insidious.

Some would suggest the phrase “HAD it pretty good” is more appropriate, as the past tense is a more accurate term for us in the present-day America, unless we become advocates for change. Drastic, Jeffersonian, Christ-like, “overturning-the money-changers’-tables”-type change.

What is real change, you ask?

It is pursuing and enacting Justice.

A concept seemingly absent from our lives, and from the words of our spiritual advisers and religious leaders, even though the word “justice” is used over 200 times in our bible. Please bear with me, and I will explain.

Justice is supporting the indictments and arrests of the “bankers” who caused this decline in our way of life and economy, rather than allowing those “bankers”, who literally stole trillions of dollars from the public treasury, to pay bonuses to themselves and to cover their own losses. The money stolen by them was enough so that every American’s mortgage could have been paid off. (Want to talk about a real “economic stimulus”!!?)

Justice is following the Icelandic model, and simply repudiating the debt.

Justice is prosecuting Judiciary officials for their conspiracy to obstruct justice for said economic crimes against the U.S. populace. Not one banker has yet been jailed, in comparison to the 800 Banker thieves during the Savings and Loan Scandal.

Justice is abolishing the Federal Reserve, and indicting its living current and former members, who have, since its inception in 1913, destroyed the value of OUR currency, by devaluing OUR dollar 95% in that time.

Justice is prosecuting those who lied us into a war which has now expanded into five other nations (Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Mali), jeopardizing our good standing in the world community and coffers (May I remind you that America is BROKE?).

Justice is insisting upon a new 911 commission, indicting the perpetrators of 911, and bringing them to justice, or rather, bringing justice to America.

Justice is ending all foreign aid to Israel, the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid, demanding justice for the attack upon the USS Liberty, spying and other acts of treason against the USA.

Justice is fostering and promoting a sensibility of humbleness, a charious nature, humility and kindness, now anathema to so many Americans infected with the disease (Judeo-Anglo in origin), of having become oblivious and woefully blind to the serious harm we are causing to others, whether creating 5 million orphans in Iraq, countless millions of war refugees, or even conducting these invasions without a formal Congressional declaration of war, as directed by our Constitution.

Is America “great” for the 22 million unemployed, especially those in manufacturing sector? During the Bush era, 33% of all manufacturing jobs were lost , while multi-national corporations downsized (or “right-sized”, if you’re a corporate apologist) while reporting record profits. Well let me show you some REALITY, Mr. American… America is 1st in prison population, 14th in education, 19th in national satisfaction, 2nd for approval of drone strikes (just after Israel) 23rd in gender equality, 33rd in internet speeds, 46th in freedom of the press, 26th in child well-being, 24th in literacy, 19th in perceived honesty, 27th in leisure and personal care, 17th in happiness, 99th in peacefulness (but hey we rank 2nd in IGNORANCE!) America — F*CK YEAH!

Is it “great” for the families struggling to make ends meet with rapid rates of inflation (aka: “the silent tax”), with the costs of goods and living increasing annually with real double-digit inflation (John Williams, “Shadowstats”)?

Is it “great” that our social programs like Medicare and Social Security are essentially broke, and that our way of life has been subsidized by printing toxic and criminally fraudulent CDOs and MBS instruments and debt, bundled and sold to China, Europe and Saudi, but is now being strictly monetized, as buyers are balking at the Faith and Credit of the USA?

Even those working for one of the largest employers in existence today, the defense sector at the Pentagon, are now facing job and income loss with sequesters. And all this time, I thought war was good for the economy? As a banker or contractor, I would salivate when that debt with interest, arrives.

Are these the signs of America’s “greatness”? No, I think not.

To be fair, I diligently researched records to find areas where America is a leader. According to Forbes, of 185 nations, we have fallen precipitously. We are 27th in Math, 22nd in Science, 49th in “Life expectancy”, 4th in Exports, 33rd in “Most free press and media”, 3rd in “Median household income”, 8th in Literacy, 13th in “Best quality of life”.

800,000 Millionaires disappeared from the USA in 2007 alone, while millionaires overseas increased dramatically.

I did uncover a few areas where America is still a leader: defense spending, incarceration rates, killing civilians this century outside our own borders, and children slaughtered in clinics, (I mean aborted) in the Planned Parenthood’ Judeo clinics, to be chopped and sold for parts.

That last is big business, by the way. Too bad I wasn’t smart enough to pass my MCATs and enter this lucrative field. To put this into perspective, sea turtle eggs are protected by federal regulations, but children in the womb are not. At least America has her priorities straight.

Yes indeed, according to the naysayers , there is no need for any introspection, acknowledgment of our shortcomings, contrition, repentance or reparations for our transgressions, America is simply “great”.

I believe that we once were, and can be again.

But not for simply saying it in the face of facts, which many distance themselves from like a leper colony. Telling yourself that we are great, loudly and often enough, you may just believe it. But some beliefs are easily shattered when, like a thrown rock, the truth suddenly hits you in the head.

The parallels between the collapsed Roman Empire and our own are striking: An overextended military, an inflated currency, a divided, multicultural populace, rather than a cohesive one. Hopefully, this will serve as a poignant and critical wake-up call.

A Christian humbleness, humility, and a peace-loving, charitable and justice seeking ethos are some of the classic, historic American values which made us loved, and the beacon of light in the world. But, these have been substituted entirely with a Judaic smugness, arrogance, war-mongering, and an irritating, bellicose pompousness in the last 100 or so years. That threatens our own status in the world and our entire way of life.

America, the parable of The Good Samaritan is worth re-reading and practicing.

And, please America, don’t forget that pride cometh before a fall.

    You’ve covered it all, WJ Rever. I can’t see how America can stay intact much longer at this rate. Personally, I’m worse off than ever. The vast majoity of the 535 +1 in Washington, DC are unprincipled, selfish, cowardly prostitues. It appears the ship is sinking and they’re going to get all they can as fast as they can. Citizens take to the streets in Europe and the Middle-East, but not here in fat lazy America. “Home of the brave”? Not any more!

    Regarding the Middle-East; if karma exists, America is in for a terrible whipping down the line. I hope Israel falls sooner, faster, and harder.

  2. Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everybody
    Annihilation by Assimilation

    Every white country on earth is supposed to become multicultural and multiracial. EVERY white country is expected to end its own race and end its own culture. No one asks that of ANY non-white country.

    The Netherlands is more crowded than Japan, Belgium is more crowded than Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve the RACE problem by bringing in millions of third-worlders and assimilating and intermarrying with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to bring in the third world and assimilate with them.

    Immigration, tolerance, and especially assimilation are being used against the white race.

    All this immigration and intermarriage is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries.

    Anti-white is called anti-racist, but it leads to the disappearance of one race and only one race, the white race. The real aim of anti-racism is to wipe out the white race or make it a minority anywhere it exists.

    It is genocide.

    Great blog. Thanks

  4. For the first time ever, more than a million public school children in the United States are homeless. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.
    So if things are really “getting better”, then why in the world do we have more than a million public school children without homes?

    The middle class continues to shrink and poverty continues to grow with each passing year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately one out of every six Americans is now living in poverty. And if you throw in those that are considered to be “near poverty”, that number becomes much larger. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income”.

    If you can believe it, the United States now has approximately 25 percent of the entire global prison population even though it only has about 5 percent of the total global population.

    And these days it is not just violent criminals that get thrown into prison. If you lose your job and get behind on your bills, you could be thrown into prison as well. The following is from a recent CBS News article…

    Roughly a third of U.S. states today jail people for not paying off their debts, from court-related fines and fees to credit card and car loans, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. Such practices contravene a 1983 United States Supreme Court ruling that they violate the Constitutions’s Equal Protection Clause.

    Some states apply “poverty penalties,” such as late fees, payment plan fees and interest, when people are unable to pay all their debts at once. Alabama charges a 30 percent collection fee, for instance, while Florida allows private debt collectors to add a 40 percent surcharge on the original debt. Some Florida counties also use so-called collection courts, where debtors can be jailed but have no right to a public defender. In North Carolina, people are charged for using a public defender, so poor defendants who can’t afford such costs may be forced to forgo legal counsel.

    The high rates of unemployment and government fiscal shortfalls that followed the housing crash have increased the use of debtors’ prisons, as states look for ways to replenish their coffers. Said Chettiar, “It’s like drawing blood from a stone. States are trying to increase their revenue on the backs of the poor.”

    Meanwhile, small businesses are indicating that hiring is about to slow down significantly. According to a recent survey by the National Federation of Independent Businesses, small businesses in the United States are extremely pessimistic right now. The following is what Goldman Sachs had to say about this survey…

    Components of the survey were consistent with the decline in headline optimism, as the net percent of respondents planning to hire fell to 0% (from +4%), those expecting higher sales fell to -4% (from +1%), and those reporting that it is a good time to expand ticked down to +4% (from +5%). The net percent of respondents expecting the economy to improve was unchanged at -28%, a very depressed level. However, on the positive side, +25% of respondents plan increased capital spending [ZH: With Alcoa CapEx spending at a 2 year low]. Small business owners continue to place poor sales, taxes, and red tape at the top of their list of business problems, as they have for the past several years.

    So why aren’t our politicians doing anything to fix this?
    For example, why in the world don’t they stop millions of our jobs from being sent out of the country?
    Well, the truth is that they don’t think we have a problem. In fact, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson recently said that U.S. trade deficits “don’t matter”.
    He apparently does not seem alarmed that more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities have been shut down in the United States since 2001.

  5. Why it’s better to grow up in Slovenia and Greece than the U.S:

    Childhood obesity, poor education and homicide rates put America 26th out of 29 nations in survey about best places to raise a child

    By UK Daily Mail Reporter
    PUBLISHED: 11:52 EST, 10 April 2013

    Lack of education, cost of healthcare, childhood obesity and teenage pregnancies put the life chances of American children at the bottom of a table of overall well being – far behind those from poorer countries, a damning report has found.
    UNICEF ranked the U.S. at the bottom of a league table of the best places to raise a child – below the likes of Slovenia, Greece, Hungary and Slovakia.
    Only Lithuania, Latvia and Romania lagged behind.

    Despite being the seventh richest country in the world, the U.S. had some of the worst rates for teenage pregnancies, homicide and childhood obesity.
    The overview of child well-being was constructed out of five different dimensions – material well-being, education, health and safety, behaviors and risks and housing and environment.
    Homicide is the leading cause of death among young black men – more than suicide, accidents and disease COMBINED, finds study
    Michigan college student murdered in her apartment ‘drowned in bathtub and was found in an unnatural position’

    Factors such as poverty, infant mortality and homicide rates were taken into consideration.
    For behaviors and risks, things like teenage pregnancies, smoking cannabis, bullying, obesity and exercise taken were factored in.

    The U.S. is one of the only countries with infant mortality rates higher than six per 1,000 births, along with Latvia, Romania and Slovakia, and has one of the lowest birth weight rates of all the countries surveyed.
    It also has one of the lowest rates of young people enrolled in education and preschool.
    Only Greece and Romania fared worse in overall educational well-being.
    America has – by far – the highest rate of children who are overweight by BMI with almost 30 per cent, though it also has one of the highest rates of children aged 11 – 15 who exercise at least one hour a day, coming second only behind Ireland

    The U.S. has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies but one of the lowest levels of underage drinking.
    It also ranks at the bottom of the league in homicide rates with five per 100,000.
    The ‘low family affluence’ rate, the infant mortality rate, and the percentage of young people who smoke cigarettes, for example, have fallen in every single country for which data was made available.
    Overall, the Netherlands was ranked first, followed by Norway, Iceland, Finland and Sweden.

  6. Pregnant Mom Of 4 Sentenced To Prison For Refusing To Serve In Iraq
    From the Trenches

    Private First Class Kimberly Rivera, mother of four children and pregnant with a fifth, was sentenced on April 29 to 14 months imprisonment, which was lowered to 10 months based on a plea agreement.
    Her crime?
    After serving a tour of duty in Iraq in 2006, she found herself unable to return.

    She tells Amy Goodman in the Guardian why:
    “I had a huge awakening seeing the war as it truly is: people losing their lives for greed of a nation, and the effects on the soldiers who come back with new problems such as nightmares, anxieties, depression, anger, alcohol abuse, missing limbs and scars from burns. Some don’t come back at all.”

  9. How Does America’s Middle Class Rank Globally? #27

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 07/23/2013, by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

    We are number 1 right? USA! USA! No one can beat our wealth creation machine, our economic dynamism, our level playing field and our bastions of higher education. We have a middle class that is the envy of the world, right?

    Well, like so much of the “American dream” we have been force fed for a generation or more, this perception is not based in reality whatsoever. Sure it may have been the case for a couple of decades immediately after World War 2. Before the military-industrial-Wall Street complex fully took over the political process, but it certainly isn’t true any longer. Myths die hard and this one is particularly pernicious because it prevents people from changing things. As James Baldwin said:

    Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
    From the Huffington Post:
    America is the richest country on Earth. We have the most millionaires, the most billionaires and our wealthiest citizens have garnered more of the planet’s riches than any other group in the world. We even have hedge fund managers who make in one hour as much as the average family makes in 21 years!

    This opulence is supposed to trickle down to the rest of us, improving the lives of everyday Americans. At least that’s what free-market cheerleaders repeatedly promise us.
    Unfortunately, it’s a lie, one of the biggest ever perpetrated on the American people.
    Our middle class is falling further and further behind in comparison to the rest of the world. We keep hearing that America is number one. Well, when it comes to middle-class wealth, we’re number 27.
    The most telling comparative measurement is median wealth (per adult). It describes the amount of wealth accumulated by the person precisely in the middle of the wealth distribution — fifty percent of the adult population has more wealth, while fifty percent has less. You can’t get more middle than that.

Liberal writers for ideologically driven magazines like The Nation and for less overtly political ones like The New Yorker did not predict a defeat, but the terrible consequences many warned of have not happened.
