Latest Dark Politricks Articles

Here are the latest essays and articles written by myself for this site. I started this site with my own work and have made at least 200+ articles, many on the first page of Google. I continue to write for this site as much as I can, especially now I am jobless and everybody is now attacking the Internet with Facebook, Google and YouTube all demonetising accounts that don't tell the "Offical Government Story." You can read all my work here: Dark Politricks Articles.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could do with some. Even if it's just a one off £5, or you could tick the monthly subscription box for a few pound each month. It will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Do Like "my articles"?

If so then check out the rest and consider supporting the site by visiting advertisers or making a small donation or subscription. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state. To see all the articles I have personally written for this site you can visit the Dark Politricks articles section for a full listing.

Your help is required!

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. 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. I am called everything from a George Soros/Sheldon Adelson paid stooge and many more things when the fact is NO-ONE funds me to keep this site going and I am paying for my own server which is NOT cheap, out of my social security money at the moment, just to keep it alive. 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 on mainstream media that have been 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. A document Trump was calling to be de-classified but when it was it was soon forgotten about and hardly mentioned on main stream meadia. Instead he goes to Saudi Arabia when elected and sells them huge amounts of weapons which are used by the 7th century, head chopping, public lashing, terrorist sponsoring, Saudi Arabia to bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon and send them to their armies of terrorists in Syria. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies" but don't even mention Israels use of white phosphorus on a UN school in Gaza, or their multiple massacres in Gaza, illegal assassinations and false flags around the world or the Saudis use of it in Yemen. 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 more people than ISIS or the Syrian army have managed together by a factor of about 1000 to 1. Just imagine all your tax paying for hugley expensive missiles to be shot into rubble just to kill another kid and it's mother.

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?

Bone Saw Mystery: Did Apple Watch Record Saudi Journalists Butchering?

On today’s TRUNEWS, what really happened in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul? Rick Wiles considers the convoluted international intrigue surrounding the death of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who Turkish reports through audio and video say was brutally carved up alive by supposed rogue elements from Saudi Arabia. Rick also looks at Khashoggi’s past connections with the CIA and Osama Bin Laden, and who stands to gain by Saudi Arabia admitting to the murder.

How Many Households Qualify as Middle Class?

How Many Households Qualify as Middle Class?

By Charles Hugh Smith
washingtonsblog.com

What does it take to be middle class nowadays? Defining the middle class is a parlor game, with most of the punditry referring to income brackets as the defining factor.

People tend to self-report that they belong to the middle class based on income, but income is not the key metric: 12 other factors are more telling measures of middle class membership than income.

In Why the Middle Class Is Doomed (April 17, 2012) I listed five minimum threshold characteristics of membership in the middle class:

1. Meaningful healthcare insurance (i.e. not phantom insurance with $5,000 deductibles, etc.) and life insurance.

2. Significant equity (25%-50%) in a home or equivalent real estate

3. Income/expenses that enable the household to save at least 6% of its income

4. Significant retirement funds: 401Ks, IRAs, etc.

5. The ability to service all debt and expenses over the medium-term if one of the primary household wage-earners lose their job

I then added a taken-for-granted sixth:

6. Reliable vehicles for each wage-earner

Author Chris Sullins suggested adding these additional thresholds:

7. If a household requires government assistance to maintain the family lifestyle, their Middle Class status is in doubt.

8. A percentage of non-paper, non-family home hard assets such as family heirlooms, precious metals, tools, etc. that can be transferred to the next generation, i.e. generational wealth.

9. Ability to invest in offspring (education, extracurricular clubs/training, etc.).

10. Leisure time devoted to the maintenance of physical/spiritual/mental fitness.

Correspondent Mark G. recently suggested two more:

11. Continual accumulation of human and social capital (new skills, networks of collaborators, markets for one’s services, etc.)

And the money shot:

12. Family ownership of income-producing assets such as rental properties, bonds, etc.

The key point of these thresholds is that propping up a precarious illusion of consumption and status signifiers does not qualify as middle class. To qualify as middle class (that is, what was considered middle class a generation or two ago), the household must actually own/control wealth that won’t vanish if the investment bubble du jour pops, and won’t be wiped out by a medical emergency.

In Chris’s phrase, “They should be focusing resources on the next generation and passing on Generational Wealth” as opposed to “keeping up appearances” via aspirational consumption financed with debt.

What does it take in the real world to qualify as middle class?

Here are my calculations based on our own expenses and those of our friends in urban America. We can quibble about details endlessly, so these are mid-range estimates. These reflect urban costs; rural towns/cities will naturally have significantly lower cost structures. Please make adjustments as suits your area or experience, but please recall that tens of millions of people live in high-cost left and right-coast cities, and millions more have high heating/cooling/commuting costs.

The wages of those employed by Corporate America or the government do not reflect the total cost of benefits such as healthcare insurance. Self-employed people like myself pay the full costs of benefits, so we have to realize there is no ideal average of household expenses. Some households pay very little of their actual healthcare expenses, other pay for part of these costs and still others pay most or all of their healthcare insurance and co-pays.

1. Healthcare. Let’s budget $15,000 annually for healthcare insurance. Yes, if you’re 23 years old and single, you will pay less, so this is an average. If you’re older (I’m 64), $15,000 a year only buys you and your spouse stripped down coverage: no eyewear, medication or dental coverage–and that’s if your existing plan is grandfathered in. (If you want non-phantom ObamaCare coverage, the cost zooms up to $2,000/month or $24,000 annually.)

Add in co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses, and the realistic annual total is between $15,000 and $20,000 annually: Your family’s health care costs: $19,393 (this was before ACA).

Let’s say $15,000 annually is about as low as you can reasonably expect to maintain middle class healthcare.

2. Home equity. Building home equity requires paying meaningful principal. Let’s say a household has a 15-year mortgage so the principal payments are actually meaningfully adding to equity, unlike a 30-year mortgage. Let’s say $5-$10,000 of $25,000 in annual mortgage payments is interest (deductible) and $15-$20,000 goes to principal reduction.

3. Savings. Anything less than $5,000 in annual savings is not very meaningful if college costs, co-pays for medical emergencies, etc. are being anticipated, and $10,000 is a more realistic number given the need to stockpile cash in the event of job loss or reduced hours/pay. So let’s go with a minimum of $5,000 in cash savings annually.

4. Retirement. Let’s assume $6,000 per wage earner per year, or $12,000 per household. That won’t buy much of a retirement unless you start at age 25, and even then the return at current rates is so abysmal the nestegg won’t grow faster than inflation unless you take horrendous risks (and win).

5. Vehicles. The AAA pegs the cost of each compact car at $7,000 annually, so $14K per year assumes two compacts each driven 15,000 miles. The cost declines for two paid-for, well-maintained clunkers and increases for sedans and trucks. Let’s assume a scrimp-and-save household who manages to operate and insure two vehicles for $10,000 annually.

6. Social Security and Medicare Taxes. Self-employed people pay full freight Social Security and Medicare taxes: 15.3% of all net income, starting with dollar one and going up to $127,200 for SSA. But let’s take a household of two employed wage-earners and put in $8,000.

Property taxes: These are low in many parts of the country, but let’s assume a level between New Jersey/New York/California level of property tax and very low property tax rates: $10,000 annually.

Income tax: There are too many complexities, so let’s assume $2,000 in state and local taxes and $5,000 in federal taxes for a total of $7,000.

7. Living expenses: Some people spend hundreds of dollars on food each week, others considerably less. Let’s assume a two-adult household will need at least $12,000 annually for food, utilities, phone service, Internet, home maintenance, clothing, furnishings, books, films, etc., while those who like to dine out often, take week-ends away for skiing or equivalent will need more like $20,000.

8. Donations, church tithes, community organizations, adult education, hobbies, etc.: Let’s say $2,000 annually at a minimum.

Note that this does not include the cost of maintaining boats, RVs, pools, etc., or the cost of an annual vacation.

Here’s the annual summary:

Healthcare: $15,000
Mortgage: $25,000
Savings: $5,000
Retirement: $12,000
Vehicles: $10,000
Property taxes: $10,000
Income and Social Security/Medicare taxes: $15,000
Living expenses: $12,000
Other: $2,000

Minimum Total: $106,000

Vacations, travel, unexpected expenses, etc: $5,000.

Realistic Total: $111,000

That’s almost double the median household income of $59,000. Note that this $111,000 household income has no budget for lavish vacations, luxury vehicles, large pickup trucks, boats, second homes, college expenses, etc. There is no budget for private schooling. Most of the family income goes to the mortgage, taxes and healthcare. Savings are modest, along with living expenses and retirement contributions. This is a barebones budget.

$111,000 household income is right about the cut-off point for the top 20% of household income. How close are you to the top 1%?

Toss in a jumbo mortgage, college tuition paid in cash, an aging parent to care for or any of a dozen other major expenses and the minimum quickly rises to $155,000, which puts the household in the top 10% of household income.

How can we even talk about a “middle class” when the minimum thresholdsput the household in the top 20%? And we haven’t even considered the ultimateminimum threshold of middle class membership: family ownership of income-producing assets such as businesses, rental properties, bonds, etc.

The key takeaway of this chart is the concentration of the household wealth of the bottom 90% in the family home. The wealthy and upper-middle class own income-producing assets, while the bottom 90% own some life insurance, cash and pensions, but their largest asset by far is the family home. (They also “own” a tremendous amount of debt.)

The problem is life insurance, cash and pensions don’t generate much income, and neither does the family home. Households counting on the equity in bubble-priced housing are not factoring in the unwelcome reality that all bubbles pop, even housing bubbles that can’t possibly pop.

To have the equivalent security and generational wealth enjoyed by the middle class two generations ago, households have to check off all 12 minimum thresholds. I’m not sure there is a “middle class” any more; if we use these 12 minimum thresholds, the U.S. now has a super-wealthy class (top .01%), a very wealthy class (top .5%), an upper class (top 9.5% below the wealthy) and the rest(bottom 90%), with varying levels of security and assets but at levels far below what median-income households enjoyed in bygone eras.

By the standards of previous generations, the middle class has been stripmined of income, assets and purchasing power.

Macron Says the “Epicenter” of the French Language is Now in Africa

Macron Says the “Epicenter” of the French Language is Now in Africa

French President makes more bizarre comments on national identity

Paul Joseph Watson
PrisonPlanet.com
October 15, 2018

null

During a visit to Armenia, French President Emmanuel Macron said that the “epicenter” of the French language is now not in Paris, but in Africa.

“The French language does not belong to any of us but belongs to everyone. She emancipated herself from her bond with the French nation to welcome all imaginaries,” said Macron.

Asserting that the French language was being “enriched with new meanings” thanks to “the youth in Africa,” Macron claimed that PARIS or France could no longer be viewed as being at the root of the French language.

“When I speak French, I speak our French languages. Its epicenter is neither on the right nor on the left of the Seine. It is probably in the Congo Basin or somewhere in the region,” he said.

This is not the first time that Macron has made comments that have antagonized critics of mass immigration who feel that the French identity is slipping away.

During a trip to Denmark back in August, Macron asserted that “true” Frenchmen and Danes “do not exist” and that everyone is now a “European”.

Earlier this year, the former investment banker also insisted that “unprecedented” mass migration was Europe’s “destiny,” citing a book by American journalist and professor Stephen Smith, who estimates that the number of Africans living in Europe will grow from nine million to between 150 million and 200 million within the next 30 years.

Macron’s globalist rhetoric hasn’t done much for his approval ratings, which have been hovering at around 29 per cent – an all time low.
