America is being pulled apart
July 29, 2016
 Pat Buchanan  -  Two hostile groups, living apart in two separate Americas.  (at least 2, actually dozens, very splintered)

Cry the beloved country. America has lost her way. She is in peril. A new captain is needed. A new course must be set if America is to find her way home again.

56% of Americans believe Clinton should have been indicted; 67% believe she is neither trustworthy nor honest.  And 75% of Americans think that, under Obama, the nation is headed in the wrong direction.

After Cleveland, Trump took a 62-23 lead among white high-school graduates, cops, firemen, soldiers and Marines – and those interred in Arlington National Cemetery.

Major Cities All Over America Have Become Infested With Opioid Addicts And Extremely Violent Gangs

Violence and drugs are flooding the streets of our major cities, but those that live in cushy suburban neighborhoods may not have heard much about this because the mainstream media is so obsessed with covering Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. As you will see below, drug overdose deaths involving heroin and prescription opioid pain relievers have soared to unprecedented levels, and in some areas of the country health authorities are finding themselves absolutely overwhelmed by overdose cases this summer. Law enforcement officials are doing what they can to combat this epidemic, but because Barack Obama has left our borders wide open the gangs are able to transport these dangerous drugs into this country with ease. As a result, we are facing a crisis on a level that we haven’t seen since at least the 1980s.

Let’s start with some hard numbers. The following comes from the official CDC website…

   More people died from drug overdoses in 2014 than in any year on record. The majority of drug overdose deaths (more than six out of ten) involve an opioid.1 And since 1999, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including prescription opioid pain relievers and heroin) nearly quadrupled.2 From 2000 to 2014 nearly half a million people died from drug overdoses. 78 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.

   We now know that overdoses from prescription opioid pain relievers are a driving factor in the 15-year increase in opioid overdose deaths. Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the U.S. nearly quadrupled,2 yet there has not been an overall change in the amount of pain that Americans report.3,4 Deaths from prescription opioids—drugs like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone—have also quadrupled since 1999.5

And keep in mind that those numbers are two years old. Things have gotten much, much worse since then, and this summer the numbers are off the charts.

For example, just check out what is currently going on in the Cincinnati area…

   With an estimated 78 overdoses Tuesday and Wednesday alone, and an estimated 174 overdose cases in emergency rooms in less than a week, officials are scrambling to attack a heroin crisis of a magnitude they’ve never had before.

   “This is unprecedented to see as many alerts as we’ve seen in the last six days,” said Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram. He was referring to a surveillance system that alerts the public health department when an unusual number of drug-related emergency-room encounters occur.

Elsewhere in Ohio, things are equally as bad. The following is from a report about the overdose epidemic in Richland County…

   One week in August produced 51 suspected drug overdoses and three deaths in Richland County, providing more fresh evidence the local heroin crisis appears to be rapidly escalating.

   The almost daily surge in overdoses impacts people well beyond addicts and their families, taking a growing toll on workers on the front line of helping people.

   Dr. Joseph Bocka, an emergency room physician at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital, said it’s not uncommon for people drop off overdose victims and leave, to find patients with a needle sticking out of their arm or to treat same person multiple times. Some are more concerned about losing their high than dying.

So where are the front page stories about this on the big mainstream news websites?

Can’t they stop talking about Clinton and Trump long enough to focus on the fact that countless numbers of Americans are becoming addicted to extremely dangerous drugs and many of them are dying?

On the west coast, similar things are happening…

   In just 12 days, California’s Sacramento Valley has seen 42 opioid overdoses  — resulting in 10 deaths. Even in a country that’s watched opioid addiction spread at an alarming pace, this kind of overdose rate isn’t normal.

   At least, up until now.

   These overdoses weren’t caused by the prescription painkiller the users were believed to have been taking, called Norco. Instead, they had taken a street pill disguised to look like Norco that contained a chemical 50 times more potent than heroin: fentanyl.

It is said that Fentanyl is up to 100 times more powerful than morphine. Nobody should ever be taking this outside of a medical setting, because the risk of overdose is extremely high.

According to Fox News, West Virginia is the state with the most overdose deaths per capita, but New Mexico and New Hampshire are right up there as well…

   CDC statistics show West Virginia has the highest per capita rate of lethal overdoses in the nation, followed by New Mexico, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Ohio. The drug epidemic has not spared any communities, said Jim Johnson, director of the Mayor’s Office of Drug Control Policy in Huntington.

   “Some 22 million people across the country suffer from substance abuse disorders, resulting in 50,000 overdose death rates each year,” Johnson said. “This is right up there on that same level as terrorism and homeland security concerns in our country. That doesn’t even count the number of people getting Hepatitis B and C and HIV.”

Needless to say, wherever there are drug addicts that are also gangs that are eager to make money off of them by selling them drugs.

Barack Obama is originally from Chicago, but things have just continued to get worse and worse for the Windy City ever since he entered the White House.

I have previously written about how there are now 150,000 gang members living in Chicago, and the violence in the city continues to escalate to new levels. In fact, this year there have been more shootings in Chicago than in New York City and Los Angeles combined.

One of the recent shooting victims was a little 10-year-old boy named Tavon Tanner. The following comes from the Chicago Tribune…

   In the weeks since he was shot in the back, 10-year-old Tavon Tanner has undergone several operations to repair the damage from the bullet that tore through his small body and remains lodged between his shoulder and his chest.

   The fifth-grader is still in the hospital and still in pain, according to his mother Mellanie Washington. He doesn’t talk as much and cries more often. Sometimes he’ll ask if police have arrested the person who shot him.

Overall, the month of August has been the most violent month for the city of Chicago in nearly 20 years. Here is more from the Tribune…

   Tavon was among more than 400 people shot in Chicago this month. There have been at least 78 homicides, marking August as the most violent month in the city in almost 20 years, according to data provided by the Chicago Police Department. And there are two more days to go.

In the past, you could avoid most of the violence by staying away from the “bad areas” of the city, but now the violence appears to be spreading even to the “good areas”…

   Chicago’s violent crime problem seems to be spreading to the historically safe “north side” neighborhoods. The spike in crime on the north side comes as Chicago’s police department has diverted more officers to the city’s violent south and west side neighborhoods to fight extreme levels of violence there. As reported by local Chicago news station WGN, violent crime is up 61% in the Loop this year with Near North Side up 50%, Lincoln Park up 42% and Edgewater up 44%.

   WGN also reports that officers have seemingly lost control of Chicago’s streets as they’re growing increasingly hesitant to confront people out of fear of being humiliated by the next viral arrest video. Meanwhile, local gangs are reported to be offering incentives to “cop killers.”

And of course Chicago is far from alone. It is only August, but Baltimore has already surpassed 200 homicides for the fifth consecutive year…

   Baltimore officially has had 200 homicide victims in 2016 after an autopsy confirmed a 42-year-old man found dead Friday just west of downtown had been fatally stabbed.

   The victim, identified Monday as Franswhaun Smith, was found Friday about 7:50 a.m. in the 700 block of Murphy Lane, in the Heritage Crossing neighborhood that was formerly the site of the Murphy Homes public housing development.

The social fabric of our nation is literally coming apart at the seams all around us, and yet after eight years many Americans still don’t know the name of our Vice-President.

Great manufacturing cities such as Detroit were once the envy of the world, but now they have become global jokes. Our middle class is dying, poverty is exploding, our borders are wide open and our major cities have become infested with drugs and gangs.

Anyone that cannot see that America is in decline is either uninformed or is simply delusional.

Our once great nation is in an advanced state of rot and decay, and attempting to deny the obvious is not going to fix anything.

Confirmed: The Arch Of Triumph Is Going Up In New York City On September 19th

Do you remember all of the buzz about the arch from the Temple of Baal that was supposed to go up in Times Square back in April? Well, that project was ultimately canceled, but now it has been resurrected in a new form. In April a reproduction of a different arch, the Arch of Triumph, was erected in Trafalgar Square in London, and now another reproduction of that famous arch will be going up in New York City on September 19th. This particular arch is not the same one that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria. Rather, the Arch of Triumph was constructed at a later date by the Romans, and it served to link the main street of the Colonnade with the Temple. So there is still definitely a connection with the Temple of Baal, but it is not as direct as had originally been envisioned.

The organization behind this effort is the Institute for Digital Archaeology. They are extremely excited to be bringing this project to New York next month as you can see from this excerpt which comes from their official website…

There are few cities in the world as much defined by their architecture as New York. The Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge — all symbols of the audacity, strength, technical prowess, diversity and optimism of what Ezra Pound called “the most beautiful city in the world.” It is also a city that has known terrible loss — first and foremost the loss of life, but also the loss of familiar landmarks that helped inform the city’s identity. The Triumphal Arch, a symbol of resilience in the face of loss, will be a fitting tribute to America’s great metropolis. The arch will stand in Manhattan, surrounded by buildings adorned with classical features suggesting the common cultural roots of East and West. We hope that you will visit us this fall to consider the relationship between people and the places they inhabit.

Their website also features a public letter from their executive director which confirms that September 19th is the date when this arch will go up. You can read the public letter for yourself right here… http://digitalarchaeology.org.uk/



So we have it directly from the source that September 19th is the official date when the arch will be unveiled.

I find it very interesting that one of the reasons why New York was picked was to remind visitors of “the indomitable human capacity to rebuild what has been lost.” Of course that is a reference to 9/11, and in his book The Harbinger, Jonathan Cahn has pointed out all of the parallels between America’s bold pronouncements to rebuild in the aftermath of 9/11 and Israel’s defiant statements as recorded in Isaiah 9:10…

“The bricks are fallen down,
but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
but we will replace them with cedars.”

When a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph was put up in Trafalgar Square back in April, it was also described by a major British news source as “an act of defiance”…

A monumental recreation of the destroyed Arch of Triumph in Palmyra, Syria, has been unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square.

The 1,800-year-old arch was destroyed by Islamic State militants last October and the 6-metre (20ft) model, made in Italy from Egyptian marble, is intended as an act of defiance: to show that restoration of the ancient site is possible if the will is there.

Many people have never heard of the Arch of Triumph, but it is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site. The following is some basic information about it from Wikipedia…

The Monumental Arch, also called the Arch of Triumph (Arabic: قوس النصر‎‎) or the Arch of Septimius Severus, was a Roman ornamental archway in Palmyra, Syria. It was built in the 3rd century during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus. Its ruins later became one of the main attractions of Palmyra, until it was destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in October 2015. Most of its stonework still survives and there are plans to rebuild it using anastylosis.

I want to stress that this is not the same arch that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra. But according to Wikipedia it did connect the Temple of Baal with “the main street of the Colonnade”…

The Monumental Arch was built sometime during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus, which lasted from 193 to 211 AD; it linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.[1] The arch was meant to integrate the southern and central parts of the Colonnade as its location marks a change of 30° in the orientation of the street.[2]

According to some sources, the structure was built as a triumphal arch to commemorate the Romans’ victories over the Parthians.

Once again, I think that there is something important that I need to point out. The Romans constructed this arch after a victory over Parthia, and in his extraordinary book on the Parthians Stephen M. Collins has shown that the Parthian Empire was largely made up of people that came from the northern tribes of Israel. So the original purpose of this arch was to celebrate victory over Israel.

Is that really something that we want to put up in New York?

And even though this arch did not stand directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria, it was part of the overall complex. In a previous article, I pointed out the similarities between the child sacrifice that would be done to honor Baal in ancient times and what is taking place in America today. This is what Jeremiah 10:4-6 says…

4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:

6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.

Needless to say, we have killed far more of our own sons and daughters than the Baal worshippers of the ancient world ever did. Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, more than 58 million children have been murdered in this country.

Another parallel between ancient Baal worship and what is going on in America today is the public exhibition of sexual acts. While sacrifices to Baal were being conducted, there would be wild bisexual orgies around the altars, and often large numbers of people would gather to watch. Just yesterday, I wrote about the crazy sexual orgies that are going on at Burning Man right now, and we have become a nation that is absolutely addicted with watching other people have sex. According to one study that is regularly quoted by Charisma News, an astounding 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.

So it somehow seems appropriate that this arch is going up in the heart of our most important city. We have so much in common with the ancient pagan world, and so it makes sense that we would want to celebrate their culture.

Unless something dramatically changes at the last minute, this arch is going to be put up in New York City on September 19th.

Unfortunately, most New Yorkers are not going to have any idea what the real story behind this arch really is.

20-year plan to Islamize America
Sep 2, 2016
-  That is the 'spring' Bill Clinton has spoken of for years.
Christians and Jews have been choked out of their rights.  The 20-year plan has unfolded with terrifying precision in accordance with its blueprint.

Phase 1 (2000-2003): Provoke the West. USS Cole. 9/11. DONE.

Phase 2 (2003-2006): Normalize apocalyptic Islamism throughout the Muslim world. Establish Iraq as a centerpiece of operations for jihad. Create an army there. Establish contingent bases firmly placed in other Arabic states. DONE.

Phase 3 (2007-2010): Expand the fight and target those with secular governments averse to Islamism. Hyper-focus on Syria. But also Jordan, Turkey and Israel. DONE.

Phase 4 (2010-2013):  The Arab Spring. Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Libya, Yemen. DONE.

Phase 5 (2013-2016): Formally declare an established caliphate.  This is the first step in creating the Islamic New World Order.  DONE.

Phase 6 (2016-2019): Move toward total confrontation.

Desperately Poor Teens in America's Impoverished Inner Cities Are Trading Sex for Food
9/14/16

When people get hungry enough, they will do just about anything for some food.

According to brand new research that was just released this week from Feeding America and the Urban Institute, there are millions of teenagers in America that live in "food insecure" households, and researchers were stunned to learn what some of these teens are willing to do to feed themselves.

Some resort to shoplifting, others deal drugs, and there were a surprising number of participants in the study that actually admitted to trading sex for food. It wouldn't be a shock to hear that these kinds of things are going on in an economically-depressed nation such as Venezuela, but this is the United States of America. We are supposed to be the wealthiest nation on the entire planet. Sadly, even while the stock market has been soaring in recent years, poverty in America has been on the rise. For those on the low end of the economic scale, things have gone from bad to worse since the end of the last recession, and millions of children are deeply suffering as a result.

Let's start with some of the hard numbers. The following comes directly from the Urban Institute website:

   An estimated 6.8 million people ages 10 to 17 are food insecure, meaning they don't have reliable access to enough affordable, nutritious food. Another 2.9 million are very food insecure, and roughly 4 million live in marginally food secure households, where the threat of running out of food is real.

9/21/16
Is the U.S. election killing the economy?

The matchup between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is the wackiest U.S. election of our lifetimes. It isn't helping the economy

Growth was already off to a lousy start in 2016. Experts predicted a summer rebound, but so far, election concerns are growing and the economic gauges are lagging.

"Ultimately, what will determine whether we have a recession next year is the comfort level Americans have with who occupies the White House in 2017," says Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist at The Economic Outlook Group.

Right now, that comfort level is low. Most voters don't like Clinton or Trump, according to "unfavorability ratings" in the polls. In corporate America, there's alarm at how tight the race is now. Many believe Clinton would be better for the economy than Trump, but even with Clinton, CEOs have concerns about how friendly she will be toward businesses.

Just take a look at what CEOs of America's top companies are saying lately.

U.S. businesses are concerned

Nearly 20% of the S&P 500 companies mentioned the presidential election in their latest quarterly earnings call as a red flag.

"It seems as though every time things begin to settle, something else happens, like Brexit or the dynamics of the upcoming U.S. election, to underscore that there's nothing normal about the new normal," said Campbell Soup (CPB) CEO Denise Morrison on July 20.

"There's a presidential election ... I think has some very unique characteristics that could be affecting the mindset of middle America consumers," said Signet Jewelers (SIG) CEO Mark Light on August 25.

"I think the election here in the United States is a level of uncertainty that's probably unsettling consumers right now," said Arthur Peck, CEO of Gap (GPS) on September 7.

The Trump wild card

A simple recipe powers the U.S. economy: People and businesses have to go buy stuff. When they do, America prospers. When they don't, America suffers.

The great fear is that the chaos of the election will cause Americans to keep their wallets shut. It's already happening among CEOs. Yes, businesses are still hiring workers (U.S. job openings are at a record high), but companies aren't spending much on new equipment and research.

This isn't a totally new phenomenon. Research shows a slowdown in so-called "capital expenditures" is common in election years. But Trump is a wild card that's arguably making businesses even more cautious.

"A candidate like Donald Trump is the mother of all uncertainties," says Baumohl. Businesses don't like to make huge investments in uncertain times.

Growth was already slow in 2016

America's economy only grew 1% in the first half of the year, well below the historic average of over 3% (and even below the not so great 2.4% rate of the past two years). A lot of that sluggish growth is blamed on companies holding back on big purchases because of the energy sector slump and Brexit. Now the U.S. election is on everyone's minds.

"The election -- or the circus -- that is being played out is certainly not helping the economy," says economist Ed Yardeni, president of Yardeni Research.

In August, Clinton held a sizable lead. But Trump is the ultimate wild card. The usual models don't seem to fully capture the Trump effect. The race is now again neck-and-neck in key swing states.

"One would have to be foolish NOT to be uncertain," says economist Diane Swonk of DS Economics.

Will Americans keep spending?

The question is whether the American shoppers are also getting spooked. Business spending is important, but individual spending makes up the bulk -- nearly 70% -- of the U.S. economy.

So far this year, consumers have been the bright spot. Americans aren't spending quite as much as the lush pre-recession days, but they still shopping online and in (some) stores. Consumer confidence has rebounded to the highest levels since the crisis.

But in August, retail sales came in far lower than expected. It could just be a blip -- or the beginning of deeper concern moving from businesses to Main Street.

"Between now and [the election,] CEOs and consumers will scale back spending, especially if polls show the race is a tight one," predicts Baumohl of The Economic Outlook Group.

The bottom line is the U.S. -- and global -- economies were already in a mediocre state. The Trump v. Clinton election is only adding to the list of concerns. The Federal Reserve is expected to hold off on raising interest rates today because of the unease (although the Fed doesn't like to admit it takes U.S. politics into account).

"It's only one more ingredient, but, unfortunately, it's an ingredient in a very poor stew," says Swonk of DS Economics.

Teen in critical condition after police shooting

Updated 9:24 PM ET, Sun October 2, 2016

CNN)A 14-year-old boy is in critical but stable condition after St. Louis Metropolitan police officers shot him, officials said Sunday.

Officers were investigating a possible carjacking Sunday morning when they encountered the unidentified black teen, St. Louis Metropolitan Police spokeswoman Leah Freeman said in a statement.

He started to flee, then turned around with a gun drawn and fired at least one shot at the officers, Freeman said.

"Fearing for their safety," both officers returned fire, striking the teen, the statement said. He dropped the weapon and continued running until he was taken into custody.

Canada prepares welcome mat for American 'asylum seekers'
http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/wor...oq?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp


Predictions of an American exodus under a Donald Trump presidency were largely viewed as tongue in cheek during the campaign.

Canadians greeted the prospect of American refugees with their typical quirky humor, eagerly touting the country's healthcare system, poutine, maple syrup and "the good side of the Niagara Falls."

But as it became clear late Tuesday that Trump was on a sure path to the White House, interest in moving to Canada spiked and crashed the country's immigration website.

"I think it's an emotional reaction. I don't know if they'll follow through," Ottawa immigration lawyer Julie Taub told AFP on Wednesday, hours after Trump was declared the president-elect.

"It's unlikely that a flood of Americans would arrive at the border seeking asylum."

However, Taub and other immigration lawyers said they received several inquiries from Americans as they arrived at the office in the morning.

Over the past year, Canadian real estate agencies and regions with sparse populations used the US election to launch marketing campaigns to attract newcomers.

"Move to beautiful Nunavut," said a Twitter message on Wednesday, hyping the Arctic territory's pristine environment and "10 months of winter each year."

The island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast welcomed Americans under the slogan, "Cape Breton if Donald Trump wins."

It offered jobs and cheap homes just 250 miles (400 kilometers) from the US border.

The immigration website explains what steps to take and the criteria necessary to be eligible for Canadian residency.

Access to the site became progressively slower as Trump picked up key states, before finally displaying an error message at 11 pm Tuesday (0400 GMT Wednesday) when Trump clinched the swing state of Florida.

Canada takes in about 300,000 immigrants and refugees annually.

210 people were shot in America on the first day of 2017
1/5/17

In the first 24 hours of the new year, 264 separate incidents of gun violence happened across the United States, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive and Vox.

At least 64 people were killed, and another 146 were injured.

The incidents include 24 shootings apiece in Chicago and Jacksonville, Florida; seven shootings in New York City; six shootings each in Baltimore and Buffalo, New York; and five each in Cleveland and Indianapolis.

Generally, New Year’s Day — which is associated with drinking and partying — is a bit more violent than the typical day of the year. But looking over the incidents reveals a pattern of gun violence that is commonplace in America.
The victims included a 1-year-old, teens, and a mother and daughter

The gunfire began as soon as the clock struck midnight on January 1 and did not let up as the day wore on.

Shortly after midnight in Ellicott City, Maryland, a 15-year-old male suspect broke into the house of a 16-year-old girl and shot her and her 52-year-old mother, killing the girl and injuring the mother. The women had just returned home from a New Year’s party with relatives.

At 4 am, a father and his 19-year-old son were murdered by an unidentified gunman in Detroit.

In Miami, at approximately 6 pm, seven people — including three teenagers — were injured in a drive-by shooting as they celebrated the new year outside their home. “We had just gotten into 2017, and here it is already,” one of the victim’s mothers told the local news. “I never would have imagined that my kids would have been caught in gunfire.”

“Something needs to be done,” said another victim’s mother. “We’re not going to have a generation, because they’re all being killed.”

Around 8 pm in Columbia, South Carolina, a family of four was found shot to death in their home in what police suspect was a murder-suicide. Among the victims were two children, ages 4 and 1.
Gun violence is showing no signs of slowing in 2017

As of the morning of January 5, 2017, the number of shootings has risen to more than 500 total, resulting in at least 113 deaths and 288 injuries. The victims include six children ages 11 or under and 28 teenagers.

This averages out to around 100 people killed or injured each day of 2017 by gun violence in the United States — not too far off from the average over the past two years.

With the coming of the new year, we’ll be seeing a new president, a new Congress, and the enacting of new policies.

As my colleague German Lopez has written (and backed with copious data), “More guns mean more gun deaths, and more restrictions on guns mean fewer guns and fewer gun deaths.”

But President-elect Donald Trump — who emphasized “law and order” during his campaign — has taken the opposite position on gun rights: “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.”

So far, gun violence has not slowed in 2017. And unless Trump reconsiders his policies, things very well may get worse from here.
