Posted on 02/17/2012 10:48:52 AM PST by OneVike
The Obama administration has released an economic report that claims everything is coming up roses, and it is making the rounds of the MSM's news outlets. Truth is, when you look into the numbers, it's rather easy to come to the conclusion that the economic reports are as screwy as the administration's employment numbers. In order to convince Americans that his economic measures are working, Obama is claiming there has been an increase in retail sales from December to January by a seasonally adjusted .4%. The administration goes on to explain that while the economy is moving in a positive direction, it is still slow. They also point out that the recently reported gains reduced unemployment to 8.3%, proving that Socialist economic policies are working. However, Obama's unemployment numbers have since been proven to be lies. Have I stated that we are in an election year and that Obama needs to get re-elected in order to continue transforming the greatest country in the history of mankind into a Soviet style basket case? To assist in the destruction, the MSM has been knowingly repeating this administration's lies.
Instead of reporting how America's real unemployment is actually up between 19 and 25%, they report that Obama has been able to get unemployment down to 8.3%. Instead of reporting that the government is spending more money than it is taking in, and that retail sales have dropped by almost $100 billion from December to January, we are told by the administration's propaganda machine that retail sales have increased by .4%. In an election year, the MSM will do everything in their power to convince Americans that Obama is even greater than Ronald Reagan.
Monthly U.S. Total Gasoline Retail Deliveries By Refiners.
Note: the two low points are for October and November 2011, the most recent data.
Graphic: U.S. Energy Information Administration
By looking at the usage of gasoline by us citizens, you will notice that it really does back up my point that Americans are not going anywhere to buy anything. The refineries are not delivering gas to your local service station because neither you nor your neighbor are buying gas. We are staying home because our stagnant income does not allow us to put extra gas in our cars, let alone drive around to purchase things we cannot afford. Again, please notice the last two data points on the graph above. They point to a historic low amount of gas being used by Americans, which has a direct effect on the overall retail sales. Which in turn will affect the employment of Americans. So unless Americans begin buying more gas to go to the store, be prepared for the administration to offer up more bogus unemployment numbers like the ones I wrote about last week which Obama and the MSM do not want you to know exist.

It should be clear to all that the worlds economy is on life support and the doctors are all quacks and crooks! Face it to a certain degree we are all Greeks now!
What kind of a mess you ask, well I think that we are in for something like the collapse of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but on a global scale.
But the market is up you say, yeah it’s up using billions in ‘printed’ money in the hands of corrupted bankers, investors and their cronies.
When the whole thing tanks as it will what do you think the entiled class will do when they can’t get their cell phones, their food stamps and EBT cards, rent vouchers and so forth.
What we will see is a much more violent version of Argentina, (checkout what is going on in Greece).
American has an even a larger entitlement minded population and much more violent and armed onen than Argentina or Greece.
I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. Many of these yutes will think no more about killing you than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the yutes. On the other hand the yutes wont think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.
Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.
On top of all who knows how many saboteurs (Islamic, Chinese etc) and sleepers have crossed our borders and are now just waiting to cause havoc.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
I’ve been following this gasoline chart since I noticed it on Mish’s blog in January. It’s downright scary.
Be forever vigil, or one day you could be asking what happened as they lead you to the rock pile.

I like it. If you don’t mind, than I guarantee that some day in the future, you will see that in an article I write.
Have at it, I found it during my travels on the web.
Yeppers, that’s the right category.
I just heard George Stephanopolous this morning talking about hwo great the economy is doing, and things are really turning around.
What would you expect from a guy who was Clinton’s chief of staff from 1992 to 1996?
I wish more Republicans would call him on his biased opinions towards the left when he interviews them.
These leftist idiotic so called journalists need to be taken down and shown to be what they are.
I will never understand why more republicans, especially conservative ones don’t call them out.
Wowsers!! NO one saw THIS coming!!!!
True story. I was in Argentina at the outbreak of the Falklands War in the early 80s and Gral. Galtieri, then Argentina's el presidente, kept telling the Argentines that they were on the verge of re-taking control of the Falkland Islands (known to Argentines as Las Malvinas).
Once the shooting actually began, Gral. Galtieri re-assured the Argentines that their military was kicking Britain's butt!! So, imagine the millions of Argentine jaws on the floor when Gral. Galtieri had to admit that the Brits won. That's what we're heading for.
It won't be pretty.
Republicans won’t call them out because they themselves are eating off the corpse of Uncle Sam.
Congress is filled with the kinds of people Alaskan’s termed ‘corrupt bastards’. These are the politicians, or political whores, who sell their votes and advice while in office, to the highest bidders.
Harry Truman said that being President was like being a piano player in a whore house. Not a bad comparison, particularly in light of how things exist in Washington today.
