Unemployment Plagues Economy Despite Claims Of Recovery

Unemployment continues to plague our economy.  In spite of constant claims that we have just turned the corner into recovery, the jobs reports remain grim with no real signs of improvement.  While Keynesian economists and big government apologists scratch their heads about persistent unemployment in spite of unprecedented government “investment” in the economy, free market economists understand the problem perfectly well.  In short, they understand that we are looking to the Federal Reserve to solve an unemployment crisis that the Fed itself largely created.

For example, the Fed is supposed to maintain full employment as half of its “dual mandate”.  But the Fed simply has the wrong tools to do this.  In fact, its credit expansion and manipulation of interest rates cause harm when they are applied to “help” the economy.  As we saw with the housing boom and bust, Fed-created inflation cannot be sustained without harmful consequences.  The Fed’s artificial boom led to the unemployment we’re suffering today.  The Fed is not a small business or a manufacturer that creates value or increases productivity to sustain real job growth.  It literally destroys value by printing more money, and distributing it through sweetheart deals to well connected banks and corporations (including foreign banks!).  The only success the Fed has had in maintaining full employment has been on Wall Street where it props up crony banks and investment houses to prevent them from going bankrupt as they should.  Instead, they survive to malinvest another day while their executives enjoy jackpot bonuses.

The Fed also pumped up employment in the housing industry with artificially low interest rates that created an unsustainable demand for housing.  Millions jumped into this sector when the money was loose and the bubble inflating.  Besides the many who bought houses they could not afford and now face foreclosure, there were also those who became employed in housing related fields.  These people invested time and money in training and spent years establishing careers in real estate, mortgage lending, construction and contracting, careers that all vanished into thin air with the burst of the bubble.  Now they face considerable disruption in their lives as they struggle with unemployment, underemployment and decisions about retraining for different careers.  This amounts to a tremendous amount of unnecessary waste that would not have occurred had the housing industry been allowed to develop naturally according to market demands.

Jobs are properly created by entrepreneurs who are willing to work hard and take calculated risks.  Jobs are also created through real increases in productivity, resulting from re-invested profits or conservative borrowing at market interest rates.  But the Fed has made those risks impossible to calculate, and made borrowing money artificially cheap.  As a result, economic growth has been chilled while unemployment skyrockets.

Until those in power understand the harm they do with central economic planning, we will continue to slide backwards and lose jobs.  The Fed needs to stay out of the job creating business altogether and the federal government needs to focus on its constitutional duties.  Just when we need government to back off, we hear about more government intervention in the economy in the form of more spending, only they call it “investment”.  It is more properly called “malinvestment”, and the resources that are funneled into industries by government policies will only hurt employment more in the long run.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
