Report: Average Rent Needed for One-Bedroom Apartment More than Double the Minimum Wage in America

While the cost of living has continued to climb since the housing
bubble popped, wages have not kept pace. People are not earning more,
they’re just paying more. For everything.

Case in point: a new report
from the National Low Income Housing Coalition shows that no one who
works a full-time minimum wage job in any state in this country could
reasonably afford to pay their rent when set at the “affordable” level
of 30% of one’s income.

Here’s a map showing the average wage needed to comfortably afford the rent for a two-bedroom apartment per each state:

costofliving

The national minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. According to the report,
the average wage needed to afford a two-bedroom apartment is $20.30.

In other words, an average American would need to earn more than
twice the minimum wage just to comfortably afford a modest two-bedroom
apartment (without spending more than a third of one’s income solely on
rent). The average wage needed for a one-bedroom apartment is $16.35 an
hour — still more than double the minimum wage.

What this means is that one in four American renting households, some
10.4 million, cannot even afford rent on a modest apartment. As the
price of everything from food to utilities continues to rise in this
country, the number of people who cannot afford to make ends meet just
to basically get by is going to get bigger too.

And as the number of jobs continue to decline, it kinda makes you
wonder what this country is going to look like in another decade…

“There is a fundamental mismatch between the wages people earn and the price of decent housing,” the report concluded.

Louisiana Democrat Claims Declaration of Independence is Racist

declaration of independence

Contrary to what political correctness and social justice advocates
would have you believe, their ideas are not about protecting minorities.
They serve only one purpose in our society, and that is to hamstring
free speech and hobble the cultural cornerstones of our rights. On the
surface these ideas may sound like they’re promoting sensitivity, but in
reality they are tools of social engineering designed to break down our
culture and language, and pave the way for a new oppressive society.

If you aren’t convinced, take a look at what happened in the
Louisiana legislature last week when Representative Valarie Hodges tried
to pass a bill that would have kids recite a portion of the Declaration
of Independence in school. The bill was well on its way to passing, until Representative Barbara Norton
said the document was unfair and that not “all men are created equal.”
Watch her defend her objection with the most baffling logic you’ll hear
all week.

The bill has since been shelved. This is
how freedom dies in America. Not by a foreign invasion or the rise of a
charismatic dictator, but by political correctness and abject stupidity.

Parents Kick 7 Year Old out of Car and Drive Away as Punishment, Now He’s Lost in Bear-Infested Woods

hokkaidomtns

Talk about a parenting fail, this time coming out of Japan.

When their seven-year-old son Yamato Tano-oka wouldn’t listen and
stop throwing rocks at a river earlier in the day, his parents thought a
good punishment would be to force him out of the car and make like they
were going to drive off and leave him.

The area Yamato’s parents left him in are woods on Mount Komagatake,
which is described as being sparsely populated (except by brown bears).
The parents reportedly turned the car around and drove right back
figuring their point had been made, but by the time they did, their
little boy was gone.

Worse, the father lied to police at first about how the boy
disappeared to begin with, claiming he just got lost hiking. Now over
130 police and rescue workers have been scouring the area trying to find
the little boy left in the mountains alone as punishment since
Saturday.

There’s still no trace of him.

GOLD Breakout 2016: The Reign of the Almighty Dollar is Over

 

Gold Price: The Single Greatest Determinant of the Upcoming Monetary Breakdown and Currency Collapse

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
SOTN Special Note:
 
Since time immemorial gold has functioned as the universal currency.
 Whatever its value was considered to be by a kingdom or nation
effectively functioned as the benchmark against which everything else
was valued.

The price of gold in modern civilization is no different.  It
is universally regarded as the barometer of the general economic health
of the world.  When the price of gold is high, there is much insecurity
in the global marketplace; when the gold price is low, investors have
much more confidence in future economic activity.

Because the US dollar was artificially propped up as the world
reserve currency with the post World War 2 Bretton Woods Agreement, the
petrodollar in particular began to function as the new benchmark.  While
this unsustainable arrangement guaranteed great prosperity for the USA,
maintaining it exerted a tremendous amount of pressure on the worldwide
system of currency valuation. The ever-increasing monetary stresses in
the aggregate which resulted have now put the health status of the U.S
dollar at great risk.

Every day that passes throughout 2016 will only see this precarious
situation become more fraught with currency volatility and financial
instability.  In fact many of the armed conflict and military
maneuverings across the planet are due to this underlying dynamic. The
Federal Reserve’s over-reliance on what is basically a dollar printing
press has significantly cheapened the value of all the greenbacks in
existence.

As more countries decouple their payment systems from the petrodollar
and sell their dollar-denominated debt, the FED has resorted to
printing even more money out of thin air.  Other nations, particularly
those that are vulnerable to energy price fluctuations, suffer greatly
due to this fatally flawed American monetary policy.  Whenever the FED
implements another round of quantitative easing to cure its financial
flu, the rest of the world comes down with pneumonia…to the extent that
they are married to the petrodollar. Venezuela is a perfect example of a
nation not far from ‘respiratory failure’.
 

Why Gold Always Goes Up In The Wake Of Quantitative Easing

The Bottom Line:

It is in times like these, when economic instability and financial
insecurity abound everywhere, that people and nations alike will
reflexively move their money into gold and silver. Gold especially is
respected as the best hedge against all types of market crashes and
economic collapses.  For this reason the citizens of India, China, Japan
and the like have been purchasing gold and silver bullion at
unprecedented rates.  Such buying sprees have exerted even more pressure
on the highly manipulated gold and silver markets.  For these and other
important reasons a gold breakout is not “If?” but “When?” … … … in
2016.

GOLD BREAKOUT 2016: It’s Only A Matter When, Not If

The explanations posted below present some essential background on
how the world got put into this perilous position—an especially
dangerous place for the U.S. economy.

Massive ‘crack in the Earth’ opens up suddenly in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains

A dramatic crack has suddenly formed in the foothills of Wyoming‘s
Bighorn Mountains that measures an impressive 750 yards long and 50
yards wide. It was discovered recently by surprised backcountry hunters
who travel frequently to the area in search of game.

First reported by SNS Outfitter & Guides, a hunting company, on their Facebook page,
the mammoth chasm appeared over the course of just a couple of weeks.
It’s an impressive example of just how quickly very large geological
events can occur under the right conditions.

“Everyone here is calling it ‘the gash.’ It’s a really incredible sight,” wrote SNS on the group’s Facebook page.

PHOTOS TO AMAZE: 13 of the most bizarre lakes in the world

“An awesome example of how our earth is not as stable as you might
think. Awesome forces at work here to move this much dirt!!” added Randy
Becker, one of the hunters to stumble upon “the gash.” Becker shared a number of stunning photographs of the crack to his own Facebook page.

A shot taken from a distance and posted at SNS gives some perspective about just how wide and how deep the crack is:

Contrary to some sensational claims swirling about on social media,
the crack is not an opening to the underworld or a sign that Yellowstone is about to erupt. The processes that created the crack are not even all that mysterious.

SNS is reporting that an engineer gave a more rational explanation
for how the crack formed: “Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a
cap rock. Then, a small spring on either side caused the bottom to slide
out. He estimated 15 to 20 million yards of movement.”

Though the speed with which the large crack formed might seem earth-shattering, these kinds of landslides are not that uncommon in the area on a smaller scale. This one just happened to be especially voluminous.

Shock Report: More Americans Killed by Police Since 9/11 than Soldiers Killed in War

Police brutality

In a Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery,
Virginia, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps
General Joseph Dunford praised the 40 million Americans who’ve served in
the military since the revolutionary war. He also noted that 5,000
soldiers have been tragically killed in military action beyond US
borders since America’s war on terror was launched after 9/11.

Thousands of families grieve daily for their fallen loved ones and
the war machine that sent them to an early grave shows no signs of
slowing.

These fallen military men and women, we are told, died fighting for our freedom.
The terrorists hate our freedom, George W. Bush famously
said after 9/11. And, if this was true, they certainly have little
reason to hate us now, as Freedom in America has plummeted since that
fateful September day.
For the last 15 years, America has fallen across the board in indices rating the world’s countries by levels of freedom.

Americans are under constant surveillance, our every move under a
microscope by government goons, “protecting us” from “terrorists.” We
are under the constant threat of violence from the state for possessing a
plant, or having a tail light out, or simply walking down the street.

Americans are constantly paranoid of those blue and red lights
popping up in the rearview mirror that most always end in extortion and
could very well end with a visit to the hospital, being locked in a
cage, or worse.

In the Land of the Free, police killed more people in just one month of this year than the United Kingdom has in the entire 20th century.
In the Land of the Free, police kill at more than 70 times the rate of other first world nations.

In the Land of the Free, we are told to “fear the terrorists” but US police kill 58 times more people than all terrorist activity against US civilians since 9-11!
What’s more, while the death of 5,000 soldiers is most assuredly
tragic, that number pales in comparison to the number of US citizens
killed by police — many of whom are also soldiers.

Prior to May of 2013,
there was no independent recording authority on how many citizens were
killed by cops. However, the FBI loosely estimated that number to be
around 500 citizens annually.

Simple math would show us that since 9/11, at the FBI’s rate, police
killed more than 7,000 people. However, that number is even higher now
that places like Killed By Police, Cop Crisis, and the Counted exist and detail every public killing by American police.

Using the most recent numbers from 2013 to the present, and remaining
conservative by using the FBI’s ‘loosely’ contrived number of 500 per
year before then, the death toll reaches a whopping 8,296.

In the Land of the Free, citizens are killed by public servants at nearly twice the rate of soldiers deployed to war. 

But these people are criminals, right? They deserve to be killed, right? Wrong.
While many of the citizens who’ve been killed by police in the last
15 years may have had it coming, all of them deserved due process. Not
too mention, many of those killed simply came across the wrong cop while
engaging in non-violent victimless ‘crimes’ like ingesting an illegal plant. What’s more, some of these victims are innocent children like 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis of Louisiana.

There is no doubt that criminals exist and present a danger to
others. However, when the number of people killed by their own
government vastly surpasses the number of people who died fighting for
that government in foreign wars — something needs to be said.

Some will say that since the US is much larger in population than the
UK, that is why American cops kill more. But this is a farce.
To expose this farce, we can compare the US with communist China.
China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.
Law enforcement in the United States killed 92 times more citizens in the same period.

So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?

We will not pretend that cops in the US kill 70 times more people
than other first world countries for one simple reason. However, part of
the multifaceted situation which has led to the trigger-happiness of
American cops is their training.

This excessive violence has gotten so bad that American police chiefs
are being sent to Scottland to learn steps to change this deadly
paradigm. A former hostage negotiator with the Boston police department,
Chuck Wexler brought a team of cops across the pond in a last stitch
effort to curb killer cops and his story was documented by Sky News.

According to Sky News:
As the two sets of police officers met, Mr Wexler described how if
confronted by a suspect holding a rock an American officer would pull
out his gun.

“You’re going to kill someone for throwing a rock. That’s what you’re gonna do,” said Mr Wexler.

“How would society over here think about you shooting someone with a rock? They would not accept it.”

The senior American officers, from forces such as the NYPD and LAPD, watched demonstrations at Police Scotland training centres.

Sky News cameras joined them as they went out on patrol in Glasgow,
and watched as unarmed police dealt with a variety of potentially
violent situations.
What the report showed is that cops in Scotland know how to avoid
confrontation. Instead of immediately resorting to deadly violence, the
Scottish cop will step back, use protective shields, or move behind a
car for protection.
What the report also found is that American police have a knack for verbally escalating situations too.

Sergeant Jim Young trains hundreds of Scottish police recruits every year.
“The American style of policing, it’s very authoritative,” he said.
“There’s a difference of going in, straight up at this level, whereby
you’re ordering people, you’re shouting at them. You can’t go anywhere
after that.
“But if you start down low you can adjust your communications to suit.”

Basically, what this experience is showing is that American police
are aggressive both verbally and physically — and it’s deadly.

The good news is that there are cops out there that know this and
they are taking action, like the chiefs going to Scotland, to correct
it.

“It’s about time that we step up and this is our chance,” said
Mr. Wexler. “It’s a crisis but it’s also our chance to do the right
thing.”

Below is this eye-opening video of American cops learning to be less
violent. This training cannot happen soon enough as America is already
on track to kill another 1,000 citizens in 2016.

40 Outrageous Facts of the Global Currency Reset

http://in5d.com/40-outrageous-facts-most-people-dont-know/

Once you go down the rabbit hole, you will discover things that
most people don’t know. Here are 40 outrageous facts that most people
are clueless about.

1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the
IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE
U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967,
Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed.
Pg. 816)

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg.
654)

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume
29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

5. The United States does not have any employees because there is
no longer a United States. No more reorganizations. After over 200

will go to Prison.18 U.S.C. 914

6. The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs were
never part of the United States government. Even though the “US
Government” held shares of stock in the various Agencies. (U.S. V.
Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF.
The Application for a Social Security Number is the SS5 form. The
Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 not the Social
Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who or what
publishes them, the earlier SS5 forms state that they are Department
of the Treasury forms. You can get a copy of the SS5 you filled out by
sending form SSA-L996 to the SS Administration. (20 CFR chapter 111,
subpart B 42 2.103 (b) (2) (2) Read the cites above)

8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been
since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive

Monetary System.

12. The UN is a One World Super Government.

13. No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a
Slave Colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just
that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as of
1945 to the United Nations.

14. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the
United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that “New York City
was the capital of the World” and he was correct. (20 CFR chapter 111,
subpart B 422.103 (b) (2) (2)

15. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a
Trust Fund. (Helvering v. Davis 301 US 619, Steward Co. V. Davis 301
US 548.)

16. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is
an Agency of the UN. (Look at it if you receive one. It should have
written on the top left United States Treasury.)

17. You own no property, slaves can’t own property. Read the Deed
to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant.
(Senate Document 43, 73rd Congress 1st Session)

18. The most powerful court in America is not the United States
Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. (42 Pa.C.S.A.
502)

19. The Revolutionary War was a fraud. See (22, 23 and 24)

20. The King of England financially backed both sides of the
Revolutionary war. (Treaty at Versailles July 16, 1782, Treaty of
Peace 8 Stat 80)

…and as history repeats itself, Prescott Bush, father of George HW
Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush, funded both sides of World War
II. The Bush family have been traitors to the American citizens for
decades.

“Sarah, if the American people had ever known the truth about what
we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the
streets and lynched.”

George Bush Senior speaking in an interview with Sarah McClendon in
December 1992

21. You can not use the Constitution to defend
yourself because you are not a party to it. (Padelford Fay & Co.
v. The Mayor and Alderman of The City of Savannah 14 Georgia 438, 520)

22. America is a British Colony. (THE UNITED STATES IS A
CORPORATION, NOT A LAND MASS AND IT EXISTED BEFORE THE REVOLUTIONARY
WAR AND THE BRITISH TROOPS DID NOT LEAVE UNTIL 1796.) Respublica v.
Sweers 1 Dallas 43, Treaty of Commerce 8 Stat 116, TheSociety for
Propagating the Gospel, &c. V. New Haven 8 Wheat 464, Treaty of
Peace 8 Stat 80, IRS Publication 6209, Articles of Association October
20, 1774.)

23. Britain is owned by the Vatican. (Treaty of 1213)

24. The Pope can abolish any law in the United States. (Elements of
Ecclesiastical Law Vol.1 53-54)

25. A 1040 form is for tribute paid to Britain. (IRS Publication
6209)

26. The Pope claims to own the entire planet through the laws of
conquest and discovery. (Papal Bulls of 1455 and 1493)

are our children. (Tillman v. Roberts 108 So. 62, Van Koten v. Van

(Estates) into Districts. (Messages and papers of the Presidents Vo 1,
pg 99. Websters 1828 dictionary for definition of Estate.)

31. ” The People” does not include you and me. (Barron v. Mayor
& City Council of Baltimore. 32 U.S. 243)

32. The United States Government was not founded upon Christianity.
(Treaty of Tripoli 8 Stat 154.)

33. It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is
to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers. Sapp v.
Tallahasee, 348 So. 2nd. 363, Reiff v. City of Philadelphia, 477
F.Supp. 1262, Lynch v. N.C. Dept of Justice 376 S.E. 2nd. 247.

34. Everything in the “United States” is For Sale: roads, bridges,
schools, hospitals, water, prisons airports etc. I wonder who bought
Klamath lake. Did anyone take the time to check? (Executive Order
12803)

35. We are Human capital. (Executive Order 13037)

36. The UN has financed the operations of the United States
government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women and child
in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America in Fee
Simple.

37. The good news is we don’t have to fulfill “our” fictitious
obligations. You can discharge a fictitious obligation with another’s
fictitious obligation.

38. The depression and World War II were a total farce. The United
States and various other companies were making loans to others all
over the World during the Depression. The building of Germanys
infrastructure in the 1930’s including the Railroads was financed by
the United States. That way those who call themselves “Kings,” “Prime
Ministers,” and “Furor.”etc could sit back and play a game of chess
using real people. Think of all of the Americans, Germans etc. who
gave their lives thinking they were defending their Countries which
didn’t even exist. The millions of innocent people who died for
nothing. Isn’t it obvious why Switzerland is never involved in these
fiascoes? That is where the “Bank of International Settlements”is
located.Wars are manufactured to keep your eye off the ball. You have
to have an enemy to keep the illusion of “Government” in place.

39. The “United States” did not declare Independence from Great
Britian or King George.

40. The etymology of government means to control the mind. From
Latinised Greekgubernatio “management, government”, from Ancient Greek
κυβερνισμός, κυβέρνησις (kybernismos, kybernesis) “steering, pilotage,
guiding”, from κυβερνάω (kybernao) “to steer, to drive, to guide, to
act as a pilot” plus Latin mente “mind”.

Veterans Memorial – emailed by a reader

Santa Barbara…



The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. 
There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep
watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. 
on it.  Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.
Amazing!
The ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed.
And that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They’re making great progress.
Keep forwarding this e-mail to others. I’m not breaking this one. I’m asking that you not break it either.
If I get it a 1000 times, I’ll forward it a 1000 times! Prayer for our soldiers…
please don’t break it! Please send this on after a short prayer. Please, let us pray…
Prayer: 
‘Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need.
These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.’ 
GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!

Must Watch: #BLM protesters attack a black Trump supporter outside Rally

This sick video is making the rounds on social media today, showing a
disgusting interaction between Illegal Alien Activists along with Black
Lives Matters Protestors fighting with a black Trump supporter.

For many months now, the liberal media
have been reporting about violence at Trump rallies, but they always try
to spin the stories to make it seem like the Trump supporters are the
ones starting the fights.
In reality, a vast majority of the time it is the anti-Trump crowd that is the loudest and most violent. The Gateway Pundit
reported that a black Trump supporter was verbally harassed by the
anti-Trump crowd because he had the audacity to be black and support
Trump.
The Trump supporter
was screamed at and harassed for his political views and eventually
just walked away from the crowd of blatantly racist liberals.
“If you go over there with the Trump
supporters, you are treated civilly. If you go over where people dislike
Trump it’s a threat to your life. OK. It’s a threat to your personal
well-being. You see how all these people act like savages?” he explained
after the ruckus was over.
Trump has held hundreds of rallies, each
with thousands of people, yet very rarely do the Trump supporters act
violently. Rather it is the anti-Trump supporters who come and try to
start trouble.
Most Trump supporters are people who
dearly love America and see Trump as someone who can restore this
country to its former glory.

On the other hand, the anti-Trump crowd is
made up of people who don’t quite understand what made America great in
the first place and would prefer some sort of liberal version of the
country that is far worse than anything we can imagine right now.
Maybe the liberal anti-Trump crowd should
take a minute to watch this video and see who the real racists are. It
isn’t the Trump supporters, it’s those who can’t accept that someone
supports Trump just because he is black.
