The decline and fall of the American empire

Mitchell’s laws:
●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor,
which leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive.


Opponents mark Obamacare’s third anniversary with lobbying surge

Medical device makers, health insurers, retailers and restaurants are waging what lobbyists call a coordinated effort to gain Senate Democratic support for overturning $130 billion in taxes that will be used to fund the new law, and repealing a mandate requiring employers to provide insurance coverage for full-time workers or pay a fine.

In one short paragraph, we see the decline and the fall of the American empire.

In a Monetarily Sovereign nation, government taxes do not fund government spending, so do not fund the health care law. ” . . . taxes that will be used to fund the new law. . . ” is a lie, paid for by the rich and promulgated by the politicians and the media — both owned by the rich.

Further, no nation should require the private sector to pay for health care. Health is the most fundamental need of a population. What good is a government that cannot provide it?

A nation that refuses care to all, the rich and the poor, cannot claim the respect of history. This generation’s legacy will be of ignorance, meanness and failure. For lack of health, we will descend into a “Dark Ages.”

Thus, does the gap widen. Even now, there is a mad rush among doctors to switch to boutique practices, requiring annual flat payments, often unaffordable to the masses.

Soon, only the wealthiest will have effective health care. The rest will see their health decline to poverty levels. We and our children will live sicker and die sooner.

At issue are a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices valued at $30 billion over the next 10 years, a $100 billion health insurance premium tax and the employer mandate, which opponents say could cripple many small business with costly fines.

The federal government easily can and absolutely should provide Medicare for every man, woman and child in America — a Medicare that pays for drugs, doctor bills and hospital bills as well as long term care.

Like elementary education, this care should be free to everyone, not just to the rich.

No only is this the only civilized approach to America’s health, but the payments would stimulate America’s economy.

It is a lie, a dirty lie, a monstrous lie that our Monetarily Sovereign nation, which has the unlimited ability to pay any bill of any size, cannot “afford” to provide health to its citizens.

The rich have poured dollars on the politicians and the media, who in turn have poured flaming gasoline on the public. America burns while the rich call the tune, and fiddle.


Rodger Malcolm Mitchell
Monetary Sovereignty


Nine Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Medicare — parts A, B & D — for everyone
3. Send every American citizen an annual check for $5,000 or give every state $5,000 per capita (Click here)
4. Long-term nursing care for everyone
5. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
6. Salary for attending school (Click here)
7. Eliminate corporate taxes
8. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
9. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99%

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia. Two key equations in economics:
Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports

  1. Health care and education should be FREE! Every modern industrialized nation has some form of universal health care – except the USA.

    What a pathetic pack of miserly, materialistic, money-grubbing, mean-spirited little morons Americans are. What a sludge heap of stupid, selfish, self-righteous, spiritually superficial sewer rats.




    Below are examples of how the rich use the media to control 315 million Americans.

    Despite the Internet, local television remains the top source of news for most people. In the 210 TV markets in the USA, most news anchors read from the exact same script regarding national news. They all parrot the same rhetoric word-for-word, given to them by AP, or Reuters, or Wall Street. The stations also share videos and graphics.

    In the video below, 13 different TV news anchors repeat, “The final days of the campaign can get a little salty.”

    Below, 14 different TV news anchors repeat, “You don’t need us to tell you that gas prices are on the rise.”

    Below, 18 different TV news anchors repeat, “Conan O’Brien may be about to push the envelope on late night television.”

    Below, 23 different TV news anchors repeat, “Is it time for dogs to have a social network of their own?”

    Below, 25 different TV news anchors repeat, “I scream, you scream…you know the rest.”

    Below, 28 different TV news anchors repeat, “Could this be the end of e-mail overload?”

    –>The same thing happens with repeated words like “deficit” and “national debt.”

    After a viewer is brainwashed, he defends the implanted message, while he boasts of being too smart to be brainwashed. Indeed, he attacks anyone who questions the brainwashing.

    The average American’s stupidity is boundless. No matter how often he discovers that the TV news is biased or lying, he still thinks, “If it were true, it would be on the nightly news.”

    “If what you say about Monetary Sovereignty were true, then it would be on the nightly news.”

    Even if a viewer does not fully believe the corporate media, he obediently uses media terminology. For example, anti-war people say that when the USA invades, slaughters, and pillages, the USA is “intervening.” Even “progressives” refer to foreign resistance members as “insurgents.” Even “socialists” refer to the “federal deficit crisis.”

    Often news anchors from different TV stations share the same broadcast studio, their sets constructed side by side. All of them get their news from the same source (AP for example). Even with local events, the managers of “competing” stations collaborate in deciding what news items they will cover, and what items they will ignore or censor.

    Furthermore, at the national level, most news anchors (both in TV and the print media) are members of clubs like the Council on Foreign Relations. (See )

    In all cases, news anchors only keep their jobs if they read from the scripts handed to them. This occurs in both Spanish and English news channels.

    Some of this is driven by economics. As the gap between the rich and the rest has widened, TV news stations have cut costs by firing staff, using universal scripts, and adding canned newscasts to create more opportunities for advertisers.

    Some of it is driven by the need to control audience demand. For example, if a TV news station told the truth regarding a politically sensitive topic (say the federal deficit) the audience would want more. Viewers would start flipping channels, comparing the quality of information. Audience demand would quickly take on a life of its own, thereby forcing the news media to improve. Control of information would fall to the audience, not the corporate media. Thus, in the long run, it is more profitable to use lies to keep TV audiences in a passive zombie state.

    The mass homogenization also occurs with syndicated talk show hosts (e.g. Rush Limbaugh) who routinely take phone calls on the air from actors who pose as regular people. Several agencies offer these actors for a small fee, e.g. the Premiere On Call service.

    TO REPEAT, most people believe whatever garbage they are fed. However, gullibility is not what gets millions to march off to war, or beg for austerity. What causes their mindless obedience is their smug belief that they are smarter than everyone else. They are too brilliant to be fooled by TV news anchors who all read from the same script.

    News anchors speak the “truth,” and give the “facts.” This is “common sense.” All “normal” people know this.

    (And if you ever doubt that average people are sheep, consider the mass compulsion to get tattoos.)
