by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
The Social Security Administration has just released wage statistics for 2013, and the numbers are startling. Last year, 50 percent of all American workers made less than $28,031, and 39 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000. If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make $20,000. So the fact that 39 percent of all workers made less than that amount is rather telling. This is more evidence of the declining quality of the jobs in this country. In many homes in America today, both parents are working multiple jobs in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Our paychecks are stagnant while the cost of living just continues to soar. And the jobs that are being added to the economy pay a lot less than the jobs lost in the last recession. In fact, it has been estimated that the jobs that have been created since the last recession pay an average of 23 percent less than the jobs that were lost. We are witnessing the slow-motion destruction of the middle class, and very few of our leaders seem to care.

Dr. Mark Sircus, founder of DrSircus.com joins me to discuss ebola and the madness of the way the US government and mockingbird media have handled the situation so far.
“It’s the end of the world if you read the press,” says Dr. Sircus.
The fact of the matter is, we don’t know what to believe because in 2013 the US government gave itself permission to use PROPAGANDA (Psy Ops) against the American people.
Dr. Sircus says, “We know they are lying. Is it a 100% lie? Is it a 50% lie? We know it’s always a lie and they’re never telling the total truth. So it’s difficult and they create stress and confusion and that’s part of the problem. But in terms of ANY virus coming to get you, It’s like a wake up call. You better start taking care of yourself NOW.”
Dr. Sircus and I discuss the realities of what we are facing and the practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from viruses of all types.

THE EBOLA DECEPTION: VACCINE AGENDA FULLY EXPOSED
by Frank O. Trotter, Casey Research:
Total abject failure. Mad Max. Breakdown of society. Chaos. How’s that for an upbeat start?
Failure is a tough thing to talk about, particularly here in the US where it’s all about optimism. What’s the best? Who’s the fastest? Where should I put my money for the highest return?
But examining failures can help us avoid mistakes. So let’s take a tour of a few currencies and money systems that fell apart. We’ll learn some principles of sound money and hopefully, have a little fun.

If there was one theme from last night’s Cuomo/De Blasio Ebola press conference it was ‘how everyone has been preparing for months’ for Ebola. We can all be reassured, right? Wrong! As The Daily Mail reports (and these stunning photos show), the police officers involved in securing Dr. Spencer tossed their gloves, masks and the caution tape used to block off access to his apartment in a public trash can.

My sins creep up on me, sent by the Devil, and beset me by surprise. I know not what to do. A month ago, in Fredericksburg, Virginia, I sat on the banks of the Rappahannock River, upon which as a stripling I had canoed and fished, and reflected on how much I liked the South. I knew I should not. At least I am told that I should not, chiefly by people who would make a hoe seem a pinnacle of intellect, but these are the bedrock of Yankee society, and I must respect them.
Besides, I fear that meridional leanings are in my blood. Yes, alas. I am tainted. I am Frederick Venable Reed. Charles Scott Venable was on Lee’s staff, and Andrew Reid Venable of the staff of Jeb Stuart. We have never looked fondly on Federal intrusion. So there I am.

Debt, decay, global disorder. Sound familiar?
Of course it does. You’re living it, every day.
But it’s not all bad news. In case you haven’t caught on by now, I’m a big fan of finding the silver lining amidst even the most ominous storm clouds.
So long as you don’t make the mistake of buying at the top, you can profit from crisis investing (spoiler alert: yes, the market is crashing). Indeed, we’re presently on the brink of a historic generational opportunity here.

from Washington’s Blog:
On the one side are Republicans, who resent taxes and self-identify with rich people who say that government is basically a huge waste of money and only private business is efficient and productive.
On the other side are Democrats, who don’t resent anything and who say that government is good enough to be worth the taxes that are paying for it.
Neither party is “pro-government,” and both parties are “pro-private-enterprise” or pro-corporate; so, what America actually has is two conservative parties, one of which — the Republicans — is extremely conservative.

Another week, another Ebola infection. This time, in crowded New York City.
This after the government declared “U.S. Ramps up Fight on Ebola.” This time, a young American doctor who returned after treating Ebola victims in West Africa. I cannot believe we do not have a travel ban and/or mandatory quarantine and testing for everyone coming from West Africa. It seems too stupid to be stupid to “keep track” of people when we could just stop people from coming here, and we would not have to “keep track” of them. We are getting hundreds of folks from West Africa coming in every month. Do you feel comfortable with the government keeping track of anything, let alone potentially sick people that could cause a deadly outbreak? It’s almost as if they are inviting a pandemic to America. Oh, and by the way, the new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, reportedly said his biggest fear for the world is “how to deal with the continually growing population.” Yes, that’s right. The new Ebola Czar’s biggest concern is over-population. That should make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

White House security has officially gone to the dogs.
Just a month after knife-wielding Army veteran Omar Gonzalez vaulted the fence and sprinted inside the White House’s East Room, another intruder jumped the barricade but was quickly captured. By two canine Secret Service agents named Hurricane and Jordan.
The dogs got Dominic Adesanya, 23, just after he landed on the White House lawn on Oct. 22. Human Secret Service counterparts arrived to arrest Adesanya while he was fighting with the dogs. Initially, the Secret Service was going to charge Adesanya with felony assault on a law officer for the dog fight, but later backed off.

What is it with these consumer-products companies that need to sell a lot of cheap stuff to a lot of consumers around the world? Over the last few days, one after the other reported what are more or less unvarnished quarterly revenue and earnings debacles.
At McDonald’s, global revenues fell 5% and net income plunged 30%. At Coca-Cola, international volume was up a measly 1%, but in the US, volume declined 1%. Revenues were down fractionally for the quarter and 2% year-to-date. Net income in the quarter dropped 14%. Revenues at third largest beer-giant Heineken, which brews its stuff in 70 countries, dropped 1.7%. People are scratching their heads: are consumers actually cutting back on beer? Other companies too have reported disappointing results.

Waking up to the truth about our manipulated reality, the human farm, the ‘loosh rote’ and the nature of the fractal world, is an overwhelming toxic shock, and as revelation upon revelation rocks our psyche, and the rug of normality is pulled out from underneath our feet…we are irrevocably changed.
Our preconceived ideas about reality disintegrate, and the walls of comfortability we’ve built around ourselves fall like dominoes and are swept away. Our personal wants and desires pale into insignificance in the face of our new awareness. We no longer gel with family and friends, have no time for small talk, or shallow and meaningless conversations, and when we try to express our new found understanding, even to those closest to us, we are often met with apathy and ridicule.

When most of us think of a State of Emergency, we think of isolated natural disasters like hurricanes, winter storms or a flood that passes through. In those cases it’s quite obvious when the emergency is over. But what if an emergency is declared for something that hasn’t happened yet? How will we know when it’s over?
Both Pennsylvania and Connecticut governors recently declared a State of Emergency, not because a disaster is taking place at this moment, but because bad things may happen in the future. This is an incredible development that citizens should be concerned about.

NY Daily News is reporting today that Dr. Craig Spencer ran around New York City “after first telling authorities he self-quarantined himself.”  The paper also says Dr. Spencer “hit the [bowling] lanes in Williamsburg.”
Dr. Spencer recently returned from Guinea, one of the worst-hit Ebola outbreak nations in West Africa. Today he was “rushed to a hospital with suspected Ebola symptoms” which reportedly include nausea and a 103-degree temperature. Media reports say Dr. Spencer has been in New York City for a period of 10 days, first entering the country through the JFK airport.
According to news reports, Dr. Spencer is now confirmed to have tested positive for Ebola. 
The bar area of one of the bowling alleys Dr. Spencer visited has now been closed, reports NY Daily News. This brings up the obvious question: was Dr. Spencer drinking alcohol? If so, was his judgment impaired?
