Americans reject family and embrace Idiocracy-style consumerism

Black Friday is more popular than Thanksgiving, according to Twitter, highlighting America’s trend away from family life and toward Idiocracy-style consumerism.

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving considered the first day of the Christmas shopping season, was mentioned nearly 25% more often than Thanksgiving at their peaks on Twitter, 77,400 times vs. 59,100, social media analytics revealed.

And not only has Black Friday taken over Thanksgiving on social media, but it’s also slowly starting to take over the holiday itself; more businesses are opening on Thanksgiving Day for Black Friday shoppers, forcing retail workers to spend the holiday not with their families but with violent mobs chasing illusionary deals.

The “deals” are so misleading, however, that retailers are in fact making more money during the holiday period.

It works like this: in the weeks and even months before Black Friday, retailers artificially raise the price of goods above normal to make Black Friday specials look spectacular in comparison.

Even if shoppers were to score a killer deal on a single product, they usually buy it alongside something else with a 98% markup, ensuring that the retailers, not the shoppers, win at the end.

And the shoppers are completely unaware of all this while they punch, kick, and trample each other for the latest electronic slave goods.

Simply put, Black Friday is a hoax and it’s synonymous with how the New World Order works: the top profits off the public fighting amongst themselves.

Meanwhile in China, workers slave away at factories owned by Foxconn and others to keep up with America’s demand for consumer goods, often performing the same monotonous task over and over again for 15 hours straight while earning less than $2.00 an hour.

These workers can’t even afford an Apple iPad with two months of pay and they have to share an on-site dorm room with seven other people.

But even if the workers quit, there’s thousands willing to take their place because the competition for jobs in China is so high.

“The employees always say the people outside want a job,” one worker told Cnet, “and the people inside want to quit.”

These conditions combined caused many of the workers to jump to their deaths from the rooftops of the factories, prompting management to install “suicide nets” around the facilities.

“Some saw the Foxconn suicides as a damning consequence of our global hunger for low-cost electronics,” Joel Johnson of Wired wrote. “Reports from inside the factories warned of ‘sweatshop’ conditions; old allegations of forced overtime burbled back to life.”

MISSOURI LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR: ARREST MICHAEL BROWN’S STEPFATHER FOR ‘BURN THIS B**CH DOWN’ COMMENTS

‘He should be charged with inciting to riot’

Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has called for the arrest of the stepfather of Ferguson’s Michael Brown, following the emergence of video footage in which he was seen inciting rioters.

Louis Head, was filmed telling angry mobs in Ferguson Monday to “burn this bi**h down,” after the grand jury announced no indictment for the police officer who shot and killed Brown.

What followed was an intense night of rioting and looting, during which several buildings and vehicles were burned by agitators.

Appearing on Laura Ingraham’s radio show, Kinder was asked “When you hear that soundbite from the stepfather of Michael Brown, what’s your reaction?”

“That he should be arrested and charged with inciting to riot,” the state Republican lawmaker immediately answered.

It also emerged this week that Mr Head is likely a member of the notorious Bloods gang, according to an anonymous police source connected to the Ferguson chief of police. Brown, himself was captured in several pictures flashing gang signs. Although not directly connected to the events that transpired, it certainly gives an idea of the attitude Head and Brown may have had when it comes to law enforcement.

Describing the looting of stores that occurred in Ferguson, Ingraham noted “Nothing quite says civil rights outrage like a fifth of Jack Daniels,”

“Or a new plasma [TV],” Kinder added.

“That really speaks to the great legacy of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King.” Ingraham declared.

Elsewhere during the interview, Kinder cited the evidence presented to the grand jury and defended the decision that Officer Wilson had acted in self defense.

He also said he believed that there would not be major changes to Missouri’s use of deadly force guidelines, following the Brown case.

Kinder expressed further dissatisfaction with the response of Governor Jay Nixon (D) for delaying the deployment of National Guard troops to Ferguson.

On Monday, Kinder suggested that the failure of police and the guard to protect businesses targeted by rioters could have stemmed from an Obama administration stand down order.

“Is the reason that the National Guard was not in there because the Obama Administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out?” Kinder said, addressing Nixon during a Fox News appearance.

“I cannot imagine any other reason why the governor who mobilized the National Guard would not have them in there to stop this.” he added.

ISIS URGES FERGUSON PROTESTERS TO CONVERT, PLEDGES TO SEND “BLOOD DRINKING” WARRIORS

Militants are not as well versed in U.S. history as they might think

by CHAD ARIAS | OPPOSING VIEWS | NOVEMBER 28, 2014

ISIS members have taken to Twitter to support — as well as try to incite — Ferguson protesters in an attempt to gain a footing on U.S. soil.

According to the Daily Mail, various hand-written signs that have been posted from ISIS members reading that so long as the Ferguson protesters pledge their allegiance to ISIS, the terrorist unit will send over militants to assist in causing as much mayhem and bloodshed as possible.

One such ISIS member, Junaid Hussain, 20, wrote, “We hear you and we will help you if you accept Islam and reject corrupt man-made laws like democracy and pledge your allegiance to Caliph Abu Bakr and then we will shed our blood for you and send our soldiers that don’t sleep, whose drink is blood, and their play is carnage.”

Another member, using the handle “@Abu 3antar Britani” wrote, “From #IS to #Ferguson we heard your call and we are ready to respond! #FergusonDecision #BeLikeMalcolmX #FightBack.”

The use of “Malcolm X” is an interesting point of intersection that apparently links ISIS with the enraged protesters. Malcolm X was apart of the Nation of Islam, and so it makes sense for ISIS members to attempt to persuade protesters by bringing up the largely revered Civil Rights movements.

Naturally, Malcolm X would have never supported inhumane actions that have been carried out by the hands of ISIS. The militants are not as well versed in U.S. history as they might think.

Although the offer of sending warriors “whose drink is blood” sounds like a tempting proposition, the catch is always that the protesters must embrace the chilling fundamental doctrine handed down by ISIS members.

CNN SAYS ECONOMY HAS RECOVERED, SO GO OUT AND SHOP

Propaganda timed to coincide with Black Friday

CNN, as a government propaganda network, says the economy is on the rebound, so Americans should go out and spend.

According to a corporate poll, “52 percent of Americans said things are going well, while 48 percent said things are going badly — but it’s the most positive appraisal of the state of the nation that the poll has found since January of 2007.”

The buoyant poll reflects government propaganda. “The economy has improved significantly. There’s no doubt about it,” Obama said on November 9. “We had a jobs report for October that showed that once again over 200,000 jobs created. We’ve now created more than 10 million. The unemployment rate’s come down faster than we could have anticipated.”

The government, of course, leans heavily on its official U3 statistics and ignores the so-called U6, a calculation including not only people out of work and looking for full-time employment, but also adds “marginally attached workers and those working part-time for economic reasons.” When the U6 is factored in, the picture is not as rosy as Obama and the government would have you believe.

Government also bases its staged ebullience on the stock market which is, as Wim Grommen characterized it, a “beautiful tree in the desert.”

The brief period of supposed stability lauded by the government is primarily smoke and mirrors. “Unfortunately, this brief period of stability that we have been enjoying is just an illusion,” writes Michael Snyder. “The fundamental problems that caused the financial crisis of 2008 have not been fixed. In fact, most of our long-term economic problems have gotten even worse.”

The optimism expressed in the CNN poll is not shared by the task managers of the financial elite, for instance UK boss David Cameron who said that “red warning lights are flashing on the dashboard of the global economy” in the same way as they did when the subprime financial bubble crash bowed the globalist economy six years ago.

Neil Howe, writing for Forbes, notes a genuine recovery keeps “getting deferred like an ever-fading mirage” and deflation, rising prices, low interest rates, weak investment, slow productivity growth, and chronic labor force detachment are slowly but surely taking down the economy.

Economists warn the fragile “recovery,” which is little more than creative accounting by the government and its legion of bean counters, will soon be sideswiped by a worldwide recession that will produce a contraction in the U.S. by the end of next year at the latest.

“We are not moving out of the woods, but may be on our way back in,” writes Louis-Philippe Rochon, citing the Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, an influential business consultancy group. “Everywhere we look, we have a serious potential for crisis.”

Jerome Levy predicted the 2007 blowout, so his prediction carries significant weight.

For a couple years now economists and even king pins at the non-Federal Reserve have said we’re headed into the Greatest Depression, an economic catastrophe worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s (it took a world war and millions killed to get us out of that one). The list includes former Fed bosses Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan, and Paul Volcker and no shortage of economists present and past from the likes the Bank of England, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley.

CNN’s smoke and mirrors poll appears appropriately on Black Friday. It is in part an effort to get wary consumers off the couch and into the stores.

Obama’s predecessor did his part to stall the economic crash of 2007, which failed.

George Bush said “we must also work together to achieve important goals for the American people here at home. This work begins with keeping our economy growing… And I encourage you all to go shopping more.”

BLACK FRIDAY MADNESS: SHOPPERS FIGHT OVER FLAT SCREEN TVS

Video footage shows consumer insanity has spread to UK

by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | NOVEMBER 28, 2014

Black Friday madness has once again descended, with video footage showing people viciously squabbling over TVs and other electronic goods, showcasing the very worst aspects of human nature.

If the clips below are anything to go by, the United Kingdom is now rivaling America for Black Friday insanity, with police being called out to numerous stores across the country to deal with fighting and other disturbances.

However, the U.S. was by no means immune to the chaos. The clip below shows people brawling over hi-fi systems at a store in Michigan City, Indiana.

Another clip shows police tasering a man in Walmart.

Another video currently going viral compares the relatively sanguine Black Friday of the 1980′s with today’s zombie-fest.

The video below splices clips taken from George A. Romero’s 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead with images of Black Friday. It’s hard to tell the difference. At least the zombies in Romero’s film moved a lot slower.

Meanwhile, the image below, taken at an Asda store in the UK, wouldn’t look out of place in any movie about the undead, just replace the flat screen TVs with brains.

Mark Dice’s annual trolling of Black Friday shoppers who shunned their families on Thanksgiving to line up outside stores was met with the usual blank stares commonly affiliated with lobotomy patients.

Russian battleships in the English Channel, say they’re training

Screen Shot 2014-11-28 at 3.04.59 PM

Russia’s Northern Fleet has been conducting naval training near Dover. Two battleships and two supply vessels worked on operations and communications in conditions of adverse weather and heavy marine traffic.

“Today a squadron of warships and support vessels of the Northern Fleet headed by a large anti-submarine ship, the Severomorsk, crossed the narrowest part of the English Channel and passed into the Bay of the Seine,” said Russia’s defense ministry.

The crews held a series of survival exercises in case of flooding or fire, as well as anti-submarine training.

After the training, in one of the world’s most crowded waterways, where the squadron was constantly shadowed by the British Navy’s HMS Tyne offshore patrol vessel, the task force went further and anchored in the international waters of the Seine Bay to wait out a storm.

Both Britain’s and France’s navies confirmed the location of the Russian ships, but denied that the Russians were doing any training.

“They are not holding exercises. They’re just waiting in a zone where they are allowed to be several times a year,” the French Navy’s information service said as cited by Reuters.

“Our information indicates that the ships are transiting and have been delayed by weather conditions. They are not exercising in the Channel, as some Russian headlines would have us believe,” said NATO’s military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jay Janzen.

Russia’s Navy reported that the crews are not going to sit out the storm in an idle manner. Instead, the crews will train in repelling underwater warfare attacks and practice radio-electronic warfare.

The captains of the task force use every opportunity to test their crews should a situation arise.

While sailing in high latitudes, Russian sailors trained by providing assistance to a vessel in distress. They also did electronic communication training and cargo transfers from ship to ship.

When NATO patrol aircrafts approached the task force in North Sea waters, air raid alerts were sounded and crews trained air defense maneuvers.

Combat duty assignments of the large anti-submarine ship, the Severomorsk, specifically practiced the detection and elimination of waterborne targets.

The task group left its homeport of Severomorsk above the Arctic Circle on November 20 and has already covered 1,700 nautical miles, crossing successively the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea and the North Sea before entering the Strait of Dover.

Northern Fleet warships will steam for the Gulf of Aden to protect vessels there from Somalia pirate attacks.
