CNN Reassures Investors: “Don’t Panic… America’s Economy Is Still In Good Shape”

| |

Our grid depends on this mineral

thumbs-up2thumbs-up

Forget for a moment that U.S. stock markets have seen their worst start to a new year since the Great Depression or that some $2.5 trillion in wealth has been evaporated in less than two weeks.

CNN says it’s hardly the time to panic:

Time to panic? Hardly.

There are plenty of reasons to relax, especially if you are a U.S investor. Here are the top two:

1. America’s economy is still in good shape.

2. Staying in stocks pays off. Since World War II, investors who remained in stocks for at least 15 years made money

Right now, the U.S. economy is growing. It’s not rock star growth, but 2% to 2.5% a year is good, and the Fed is being very cautious.

More importantly, businesses are still hiring. Over 2.3 million jobs were added last year (the latest data on hiring comes out Friday and it’s widely expected to show more jobs added).

Pay no attention to the fact that last week not a single cargo ship was transporting raw materials in the South China Sea, the first time in history that it has happened. The economy is is great shape and this is not proof that global commerce has literally stopped.

Worry not that Walmart, Macy’s and scores of other retailers had an abysmal holiday season and are now set to lay off tens of thousands of workers. Unemployment, when calculated using models that were used during the Great Depression and that were defined out of existence by the government in 1994 show that some 23% of Americans are out of work. But we don’t calculate like that anymore, so we actually have an employment rate of about 95% in America right now.

And though the economy is officially growing at 2.5% per year based on the government’s trustworthy data, we should absolutely not look at the inflation numbers, which according to Shadow Stats are running about 4% per year. If we did, however, go totally fringe and consider inflation within the context of the economy we might notice that this purported growth is actually negative 2% if not worse.

In fact, we’re doing so well that just 45 million of America’s population of 320 million people are on food stamps right now. By all accounts, a really good sign of not just economic growth, but more jobs and an increase in personal incomes.

And with oil trading at under $30 per barrel, we can see nothing but blue skies going forward because, hey, we’re all paying a dollar less for gas now. We’re sure this will have no effect on the domestic real estate market in places like Texas and North Dakota. Nor will this collapse in oil prices cause debt burdened domestic oil companies to close up shop, potentially leading to a domino affect across the entirety of the U.S. economy. Nor will it have any impact on periphery businesses that service those companies, including all of those restaurants that saw below-minimum wage job growth explode last year.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about. The notion that an economic and financial catastrophe of historic proportions is playing out right before our eyes is the fantasy of internet conspiracy fanatics.

At this point, we encourage our readers to take no action to prepare for the coming calamity, because there is no coming calamity.

Carry on. Everything is awesome. It really is different this time.

      And they’re owned by Jews. Ted Turner sold out to them, then later lost half his money to a Jew.

      • Reverend Draco

        I’ve been wondering for a while here. . .

        It seems that everywhere Jews go, they’re universally reviled.
        This says much more about them than it does the rest of us.

        It’s not like it’s an occasional thing. . . or only happens in certain parts of the world – if this was the case, one could reasonably say that those occasional people or the people in those particular places are assholes – but that’s not the case.

        Like being in school when I was a kid .. . if you got in trouble, the question your parents asked was, “what did you do?”

            I’ve read the “Protocols” as you call it. Not a very exciting read but I was actually in dismay reading it. Learned protocols of zionism. CNN is pure establishment propaganda.

          • sunshine

            True, not exciting but eerily accurate, isn’t it?

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            Do you mean the Protocol of the Elders of Zion, which has come to be regarded as a concocted fictional propaganda piece?

          • sunshine

            Yes. Do you think it’s actually fictional propaganda? I look around and what the Protocols said would happen…has either happened, or is about to happen.

            What do you think about prophecies/various prophets?

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            I think virtually everything qualifies as propaganda from one point of view or another. Since I am not a believer in prophesy that I didn’t receive directly from source, and I don’t solicit or propagate it, I prefer trend following, such as that done by Gerald Celente and others. I personally regard most of the bible as suspect as the Protocols, vis a vis prophesy. I haven’t studied either extensively enough to vet them.

        • Adol Hintner

          Reverend Draco, read the book, ‘Jewish Supremacism’. The Ten Commandments only apply to Jews, not non-Jews, according to the Jews. They don’t have the ‘Love they neighbor, Do unto others’ morals that Jesus taught. They own over 80% of the media and every publishing company. Most country’s used to have laws against them immigrating because they take over by Loan sharking and treachery. The early Popes ordered all Talmud’s to be burned because it was filled with hate.

          • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

            They follow the 7 noahide laws that George Bush sr. singed into law recognizing in 1991(right now it is just recognized as “education day” but sets a precedent). You violate one of these, even from being merely accused by a jew without any proof whatsoever… OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!

            ICD 9 E 978 “Legal Execution
            All executions performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority [whether permanent or temporary] as:

            beheading, decapitation (by guillotine)

            **above is the legal medical code for beheading in the united states.

    1) In the headline photo, where is the white male?
    2) In the UK we have what are called ‘Zero-Hour Contracts’. These are jobs which carry no fixed hours of employment. The employers can just call the employees in whenever, and forever how short or long a time, they want. There are an estimated 1million persons in the UK now employed on ZHCs. This is how the government gets around the unemployment problem. All those persons are technically employed in gainful occupations. The fact that they might only work a few hours here or there, or maybe only work sporadically, doesn’t matter. They count as employed. Therefore the UK Unemployment Rate has fallen. da-da!

  • SP_88

    CNN is such a joke. Does anyone ever really watch them anymore? When is the last time they put out an honest story? When is the last time they did some honest journalism? The MSM in general is working to cover up for the government corruption and helping to spread their lies and disinformation. They work to keep the public as uninformed as possible so they won’t start getting worried about economic collapse or some other disaster.
    But the alternative media is not under their control. They have been able to tell people about the lies and the crooked agendas and the manipulation of the economy and the support of terrorism and the wars for oil, etc, etc. The alternative media is beginning to undo all the dishonest work that was done by the MSM. The government is losing control over the narrative because of the alternative media, and they know it. And most of their options to stop it would set off a big backlash, and the government would suddenly look like the tyrants they are even to the people who typically would support them, and they would possibly start a revolution. So they can’t just do something crazy like shut down the internet or censor the alternative media because it would set off a response from the public that would further erode their agenda.
    But I’m sure that they will try to eliminate the alternative media or control the content through some nefarious means. If nothing else, they are stubborn and persistent.
    But hopefully the people will be able to overcome whatever the government tries to do to stop the spread of truth.

    Bit sensationalist as ship tracking sites show shipping movements.

    Shipyards have been very busy in the same way that home builders were busy during the building of the sub-prime bubble. They were building new, larger ships at the same time that the investment bubbles were being built, and now they have a large inventory of ships that are totally unneeded in a shrinking shipping market. The problem will be resolved when the oldest and most decrepit of the world’s shipping fleets are sent to be salvaged.

My driving record is squeaky clean for the last 40+ years, because I gave up taking childish risks after puberty, and the return of my license after a quarterly suspension.
            The ship was built to be unsinkable, but the crew had left all of the bulkhead doors open that would have sequestered the flooded part of the ship, and saved her. Since most rich people cluster together, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’d do so to their deaths.

            Off topic: Have you ever run your water distiller all day? If so, how much water can you distill? We had a conversation almost a year ago about it and I told you I bought the counter top unit from Pure Water but I was intending to buy the one you have. Well, I am struggling with keeping up with the distilled water demands of my household(colloidal silver generators, ultrasonic humidifiers, snake cage water bowls + what I drink which is more than a gallon a day) and was curious of the output of your device because I am going to make a purchase soon if it’s good and you would know… if you’ve ever used it before, that is.

It is in a storage locker 4 hours away, along with a dozen cases of Mountain House freeze-dried food. I will eventually move all of that stuff to where I have moved to, but sometimes plans take a while to fulfill:-)

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            I never bought it for routine daily use as long as a gallon of multi-filtered municipal water is available at Walmart for 37 cents. Since I have lived around (and sometimes down by) a river for many years, I figured that selling pure drinking water would be a good way to pay for everything else, and the rivers never run dry in Wyoming. If they ever did, there’s always a lake or reservoir downstream. I’ve got both within 5 minutes travel, and the reservoir powers a hydroelectric dam that powers the town.

            I think you could save a lot of time, money, and water if you were willing to partition your water. I do this by using water from Walmart’s filter machine for drinking and cooking, and standard tap water from wherever for personal hygiene. I don’t worry about the chlorine and fluorine for the latter, because they act like VOCs when heated at atmospheric pressure in a well-ventilated van. The ventilation is a requirement of having breathable air where all heating is by way of a 35K/btu/hr stove fueled by propane. I’ve been able to cut way back on burning propane by use of a new -50 sleeping bag.

          • Wags71

            Do you need distilled? Or can it be RO/DI? I settled on a Berkey, but that’s for drinking water and really slow. I’d also like to get a whole house RO/DI.

          • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

            I need distilled specifically for the colloidal silver generator and the ultrasonic humidifier as well as the monsoon auto-mister, all the rest I just want clean water! My friend does the RO/DI for his salt water tank, I wonder how good it is? Do you have to soak RO/DI water in Tulsi leaves to remove the fluoride? I need to learn more.

          • Wags71

            RO/DI water shouldn’t have any fluoride in it already. It also has all trace minerals removed so it’s not exactly great for drinking unless you add a little sea salt or himelayan salt to it. It’s pretty close to distilled IIRC. The biggest problem I have with RO/DI is that a ton of water is wasted which is why I settled on a Berkey with fluoride filters.

            Soon, I’m not going to have to worry about fluoride after I start iodine supplementation (still researching).

          • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

            Boron displaces fluoride, it’s illegal in Europe and in Germany you can only possess up to 20 grams but it must be registered… here they sell it in the laundry soap aisle by the box.. Mule Team Borax.
            http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm

            Also using Tulsi leaves gets the fluoride out of water by soaking water in them. I want to try the iodine thing out too because fluoride displaces iodine in the thyroid. I was gonna get lugol’s.

          • Wags71

            yeah, both iodine and boron displace fluoride. I’m going to do both. It really helps with the thyroid and decalcifying the pineal gland, which is the part I’m most interested in.

            I have a nice iodine guide I can get you. The detox can be pretty intense because it also displaces a lot of other heavy metals. You need to take selenium and magnesium and vitamin c along with sea salt to help detox. I’ll find it.

            Cool, that sounds great and like something I’d do, thanks!

            lol, screwed that up. Disqus is weird sometimes.

            I didn’t have any selenium or magnesium, but I did take 100 mg of iodine one day just for the hell of it and it was pretty uncomfortable. There are two schools of thought, to start slowly or start at full dose. I’m just going full dose. You can’t OD on iodine because whatever the body can’t use it just passes the rest through urine. I’m using the 5%I/10%KI Lugols.

            Where did you get your lugol’s, amazon?

          • Wags71

            Yeah. This is what I got. There may be others that cost less now, but that should give you the idea.

            Oh and this doubles as a prepper’s necessity for radiation or water purification too.

        WHOA! They’ve been playing that game for a long time too. No surprise. Remember how many scientists were on the missing Malaysia plane?? Killing anyone who stands in their way, objects to them, or could expose them.

        • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

          Yep! And there is always a cover story as not to suspect the true intentions of the event…sneaky bastards. In the plane accident wasn’t it about a semi-conductor patent? It was with one of those crashes…

          • sunshine

            It’s always something, seems like every time a plane goes down, it’s to kill someone they want dead! I think one of the Malaysia planes was about a bunch of microbiologists, that had created an airborne Ebola virus? Hmm now I have to go see where I read that. Lol there’s literally so much info that it’s hard to keep it all straight.

    This is actually a true statement because the economy does not have anything to do with everyday people. We feel the effects of changes in it after the fact and we an get suckered into schemes like the stock market but mostly it has nothing to do with us and those it pertains to are doing simply great, why would they change a thing?
