You can’t listen to the state run corporate media these days or open one of their propaganda newspapers without seeing a discussion of the so-called fiscal cliff. We’re being told of doom and gloom if Congress doesn’t hand over to the Executive branch more control over the economy.
Never mind these are the same folks that brought us to the cliff and I suggest pushed us over the cliff in 2007/08. That’s right, we’re not going to fall off any cliff… we’ve already gone over the cliff and just haven’t hit bottom yet.
I find it curious that the state run corporate media was NOT talking about this cliff before the election. The Republicans were not talking about it either. Only one or two voices (Ron Paul and Gary Johnson) were warning America of a fiscal cliff. But, American’s didn’t want to hear that message, and thanks to the folks at MSNBC, CNN, FOX, CBS, ABC, etc. etc., the American sheeple did not hear much about it. Not until after the reinstatement of Barack Obama, of course.
While Americans were enjoying their bread and circuses over the Thanksgiving holiday, their brains were being subjected to yet another propaganda campaign designed to get them to love their oppressors.
Anybody with half a brain knew this was coming. The signs were everywhere. The collapse of the real estate market, the $7.4 Trillion banker bailouts, 20% unemployment, record numbers of people on food stamps, out-of-control government debt, ever rising government debt ceiling, and the FED printing $Trillions of dollars in funny money.
Sen. Orrin Hatch, the top-ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee called Obama’s plan a “bait and switch”. “What [Obama] proposed this week was a classic bait and switch on the American people—a tax increase double the size of what he campaigned on, billions of dollars in new stimulus spending and an unlimited, unchecked authority to borrow from the Chinese,” he said in Saturday’s weekly GOP address.
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was pitching a deal deal that included $1.6 trillion in tax hikes, $50 billion in economic stimulus spending and $400 billion in spending cuts. More taxes, more FED money printing and more government spending.
Bait and switch is putting it politely. In reality, it’s an ongoing looting of the American economy by multi-national mega bankers on the backs of the American people. The talk of a fiscal cliff is only a scare tactic to deceive the American people into submission to prop up the ponzi scheme we’ve been living with the past 90 or so years.
Folks, there is NO fiscal cliff we’re in danger of falling off. We’ve already gone over the cliff and just haven’t heard the “splat” yet.
