This new story over at CNS News reports that Americans spent more money on taxes in 2018 than on food, clothing and health care combined, with the average American 'consumer unit' (which include families, single persons living alone or sharing a household with others but who are financially independent, or two or more persons living together who share major expenses) spending $18,617.93 on taxes over the year while during the same time period, they were spending only an average of $14,758.11 on 'basic necessities'.
So while US cities are falling apart, especially those run by Democrats as we've reported time and again on ANP, transformed into disease-ridden wastelands under Democrat rule, and 60% of Americans only one missed paycheck away from disaster, why in the world are we giving SO MUCH MONEY AWAY to foreign nations? Imagine the kinds of projects that could be accomplished in America with that $50 billion if spent the 'right way' and not frittered away by corrupt politicians on their own 'pet projects'. Or better yet, just lower or eliminate taxes all together and let the American people keep their own hard earned money rather than giving it away to other countries who obviously don't have America's best interests in mind.
Much more below this abominable chart including a look at a new story by Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog who interviews Gerald Celente as heard in the 1st video at the bottom of this story. And Celente warns us an impeachment of President Trump could not only take down the markets, with what happened after Bill Clinton's impeachment a sign we shouldn't overlook, but trigger a financial catastrophe in the months ahead.
With the chart above showing just how incredibly much money is being paid by the American taxpayer to help finance globalists programs with the US taxpayer financing practically the entire world, including nations that surely don't have our best interests in mind, why is America still sending hundreds of millions of dollars to nations such as Russia and still sinking billions into 'bottomless money pits' like Iraq and Afghanistan?
And while we see in the next chart below showing President Trump's proposed 2020 budget that US foreign aid money only makes up 3% of our total budget expenses (under 'State and International' - $43 billion), that amount is still nearly as much as the $44 billion we spend on financing our Housing & Urban Development Department and MUCH more than we spend on the Department of Energy and TWICE AS MUCH as we spend on each of the following US Govt Department's: Transportation, Justice and Agriculture.
So when American roads are falling apart due to massive potholes and disrepair and our nation's infrastructure falls apart while our food supply dwindles, we should think about just how much money paid by the US taxpayer is being sent overseas to government's run by dictators who'll do who knows exactly what with it.
So with America spending more on propping up government's overseas and dictators who'd rather see Americans dead than alive than we do on many of our own internal US government departments as seen in the graphic from the National Priorities Project above, it's easy to see how Americans are getting the short end of the stick, especially when they're paying more money towards taxes yearly than food, housing and other basic necessities.
And as we hear from Gerald Celente in the 1st video at the bottom of this story and read in this October 2nd story from Greg Hunter over at USA Watchdog, 'trend's forecaster' Celente strongly believes that if Democrats impeach President Trump, that could be the trigger for 'the greatest Depression', much worse than the Great Depression he argues. And with Democrats pushing for impeachment sooner rather than later, with everything else that's also now happening in America, we may be running out of time to prepare. From the USA Watchdog story.
Celente explains, “What’s going to happen, as this impeachment process intensifies, go back to what happened when ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton got impeached, you saw the DOW go down almost 20% into correction territory. Now, it’s different than in 1998 because we still had growth going on. If this market goes down, it’s going to go down real hard because it’s already artificially being propped up with monetary methadone that morons and imbeciles call quantitative easing and negative and zero interest rate policy. So, now, when this thing goes down from the pressure of impeachment, there is nothing to hold it back up. . . . We have a global slowdown. We have pressure all over the world . . . . Economies have been artificially propped up, and the monetary methadone is wearing off. The addicted bull is ready to go under.”
Celente adds, “So, when you go back to impeachment, we look at a global economic process putting all the pieces together, and you have to look at what this is going to do in the climate that we are in. When this impeachment pressure starts hitting and hitting and hitting, the markets are going to collapse globally. . . . It will cause all the global markets to go down because the United States is the only semblance of a strong economy, and it’s weakening.”
Whether impeachment or economic armageddon or Civil War, any major crisis could suddenly cast us into a world where being able to access food and basic necessities isn't anywhere near as easy as it is now with a short trip to the local grocery store only a few minutes away for most of us. And as Steve Quayle now warns us, "nothing will ever be 'normal' again".
Over the last several months, I’ve been asking many of my best contacts what they think about the risk of civil war and what such a conflict would actually look like. These contacts include former military intelligence, special forces and law enforcement. They all agree that several upcoming events could trigger a rampage by the increasingly hysterical Leftists, including if Trump wins re-election in 2020, or if Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes away, giving Trump the opportunity to nominate another U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
There’s also the increasing risk of systemic financial collapse, which the central banks are desperately trying to stave off through “repo” actions that are just another form of quantitative easing. The writing is on the wall, however: Even the central banks know this is the final blowout chapter in the history of global debt. It’s only a matter of time before the ability to create new money can no longer fund the runaway debt spending of the governments of the world, include the U.S. government.
Adams then tells us that there are many practical actions that we ourselves can take to help keep us and our families alive and Mike goes over a number of them in this story and in that 2nd video below. So no matter what is ahead for us, we serve our families best by preparing to survive on our own should everything we now know as 'normal' come suddenly grinding to a halt.
And just in case any of those worst case scenarios come to pass, we'll always need food, water, shelter, a way to keep warm in the winter, a way to defend our homes and basic necessities. Some long term food supply options include.:
For those who prefer to grow their own food indoors year round, coming up with a long term solution to what could be a life or death problem, several different books offer a great way to get started and get more bang for your bucks.
