What if the United States maintained a silver backing for the dollar, which it abandoned in 1964?
How much things cost in 1933 vs today if we still had a silver backed dollar ($21.60 price conversation).
Average Cost of new house $5,750.00 Today $124,200 Average wages per year $1,550.00 Today $33,480 Cost of a gallon of Gas 10 cents Today $2.16 Average Cost for house rent $18.00 per month Today $388.80 A loaf of Bread 7 cents Today $1.51 A LB of Hamburger Meat 11 cents Today $2.37 Plymouth 6 Car $445.00 Today $9,612 Campbells Vegetable Soup 10 cents Today $2.16 Average Laborers Wage $20.00 per week Today $432.00
Of course this doesn’t take into account technology reducing prices over the years, which would make this comparison even more stark.
By the mid-1960s inflation of everyday goods and services is notable yet still restrained.
If we were still backing the dollar with silver, does anyone doubt that we would have a higher standard of living in this country today?
Update 7/26, 9:50AM EST: It appears that as of this writing YouTube has restored SGT Report’s channel. This is likely at least in part due to the outcry from subscribers.
Editor’s Note: We are most disturbed to find that YouTube has chosen to fully eviscerate the SGT Report channel from its platform with absolutely no true justification. The channel owner also reports that YouTube has even locked him out of his account entirely.
As many already know over the past eight years SGT has established itself as one of the finest alternative sources for political commentary and analysis available online today. At the same time, as its editor points out below, this action is something of a twisted compliment from entities who in their arrogance realize they must resort to overtly silencing those who are repeatedly at an advantage in the court of public opinion.
Ok, I’m feeling fairly devastated at the moment. More than 1,000 videos and interviews and more than 345,000 subscribers, gone. You Tube terminated my You Tube channel this morning by giving me a third ‘community guidelines’ strike within a three month period.
You Tube is worse than Big Brother. In Orwell’s 1984 Winston merely altered history in newspapers to hide the truth, You Tube is deleting history all together.
Editor’s Note: The author of the article below, Diane Jakopovic, is an experienced respiratory therapist who has done considerable research on the Sandy Hook School mass shooting event. Please see her 2015 study, Medical Aspects of the Shooting at Sandy Hook School. Although many of the links from that piece to video documents on YouTube and government sites have been assiduously removed by site owners since the article’s publication, it still presents numerous professional observations of apparent on-the-ground medical activity and the contradictory capture of such activity in the official record.
Recent revelations concerning FBI administrators’ sentiment toward the US political process and public opinion generally suggests how politicized the nation’s top law enforcement agency has indeed become. This is most recently evidenced in their routine attempts to undermine the 2016 presidential election results and July 12, 2018 congressional testimony of FBI Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.
Author’s note:This article is a portion of some of the research I and others have done; I’ve also compiled a larger packet of some of my research that I will include a link to, at the end of this article. The packet contains the information in this article, but is more detailed, with report numbers, links to articles and videos, etc. It also contains some other examples of other oddities, and even blatant lies, from the CSP report. All I ask in return is that you please forward this article to every politician, author, televison host, journalist, and news media outlet (both mainstream media and also alternate media) that you can think of. If we’re ever going to force this issue to the forefront, now is the time… actually, it is way beyond time to blow Sandy Hook wide open.
I don’t claim to know what happened at Sandy Hook School that day. I don’t know if people were killed or not. But I do now know, and will prove, that many people in authority knew about this event ahead of time, planned for it, and may have participated in it.
How can one not notice a big elephant in a small room? It happens.
But sooner, or later…..
Even though I have the entire CSP report downloaded and spent years reading through it over and over, I have always felt there was more. Some astounding proof, via FOIA, persistence, and good detective work, has been uncovered by Wolfgang Halbig, offering undeniable proof (official documents) proving that the Chalk Hill School was in the possession of the Newtown School District months beforethe shooting, not days after, and that Sandy Hook students were already attending Chalk Hill School before the shooting occurred (see photos at end of this article). Wolfgang and many other dedicated researchers have also uncovered vast numbers of other lies that the public has been told.
Because so many of the articles and videos we post are immediately removed, and accounts often closed, there has always been high suspicion that very powerful forces were working behind the scene to bury whatever we dug up. Not many can influence the media, or have the authority to force social media sites and Youtube to remove what they don’t want people to know. It is hard to imagine a group of people with enough money, time and employees devoted only to shutting down the many ‘truthers’. There is really only one ‘group’ that I can think of that has that kind of power; that group is our own government. And now as we watch the corruption and criminal activity of the heads of the DOJ, the FBI, and other government agencies being peeled back like an onion, there is no reason not to believe that they may have actually been involved in so much more that has yet to be uncovered.
There are many mass shooting events which are suspicious and deserve further analysis and answers. But the shooting at Sandy Hook School is exceptional to me because in Nov. 2013, the Connecticut States Attorney, Steven Sedensky, released the Connecticut State Police (CSP) investigation report to the public. This gave independent researchers who saw some outlandish flaws in what we were told, something to dig into using official documents, and first reponders, witnesses, and investigators own words.http://cspsandyhookreport.ct.gov/
The CSP report consists of over 7,000 pages, thousands of pictures, audio recordings, and even dash cam videos. It was not seachable until some savvy, enterprising ‘truther’ made it so. Much is redacted, much is not; some is missing. It is confusing, it is contradictory, it is often implausible, and yes, even ridiculously stupid.
The report is not necessarily in sequential order; the grammar and spelling are awful. Most witness statements have been rewritten in the 3rdparty by the officers, and signed months later, with originals redacted. Even most first reponder officer’s did not sign their own statements for months. But there is enough there so that some of us have been able to pick out many anamolies, contradictions and outright lies.
The “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” has reached a new nadir under corporate police state control. Walmart is among the entities behind a program to equip public schools with five gallon capacity “safety” or “lockdown” buckets for readiness in the event the facility’s inhabitants undergo martial law for an extended period of time. Taking a page from “preppers” often lampooned in major media, the vessels will be stocked with first aid supplies and foodstuffs, and can even be used as latrines.
The idea of “shelter in place buckets” was floated shortly after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland Florida on February 14, 2018, as the video below suggests.
Louisiana’s WAFB carries the syndicated story attributed to CNN:
With classroom shootings on the minds of many, one Michigan high school is trying to make their students feel safer.
Heidi Hummel and her classmates are gearing up for their senior year at Clio High School, but back-to-school prep has taken a more somber tone after recent school shootings.
This year at Clio, every classroom will have what’s called a “safety bucket.”
“We are unloading them and using them in the event, if we ever needed them, for a lock down,” Hummel said. “And we can have them for food and supplies if we were ever locked down for a long time.”
The buckets will go into every classroom in the school district. Assistant Principal Kevin Ayre said the school needs the public’s help to fill the buckets with potentially life-saving supplies.
“They’re going to be filled with gauze, bandages, water – you know, necessities in the situation where we have to be in a long-term lockdown,” Ayre said.
Walmart donated at least 144 of the buckets, and students and faculty said they’re great because in the case of an emergency they could use them as bathrooms as well.
Court rules John McAdams to be reinstated immediately after a drawn-out suspension, court battle.
Editor’s Note: In 2014 Marquette University Political Science Professor John McAdams locked horns with an angry ‘social justice warrior’ graduate student instructor by calling the individual’s authoritarian classroom antics out on his personal blog. He has just prevailed in Wisconsin’s court system in overturning the university’s decision to discipline him. The original decision to suspend McAdams without pay was that of a university administrator “Kangaroo court” that the academic chose to fight in state court.
Given Dr. McAdams’ political stances this has likely been a lonely fight conducted with the aid of few-if-any colleagues or professional academic organizations. The professor is otherwise an ardent defender of the dubious “lone gunman theory” of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, long supported by the US intelligence community and corporate media, which if anything should make him a welcome component of the American university system.
MADISON, Wisconsin — Wisconsin’s Supreme Court has come down firmly on the side of political science professor John McAdams in his dispute against Marquette University, ending a nearly four-year absence from the Jesuit campus and an acrimonious battle over academic freedom and tenure rights.
The justices ruled 4-2 in McAdams v. Marquettethat Marquette violated McAdams’ academic freedom by suspending him indefinitely, without pay, over a blog he wrote about a graduate student-teacher’s alleged suppression of a student’s opinion against “gay marriage” in a classroom discussion. The court overturned an appellate court ruling and ordered McAdams reinstated immediately and awarded damages, including back pay.
“The undisputed facts show that the university breached its contract with Dr. McAdams when it suspended him for engaging in activity protected by the contract’s guarantee of academic freedom,” concluded the decision written by Justice Daniel Kelly.
The ruling stated that Marquette violated McAdams’ academic freedom by suspending him for the Nov. 9, 2014, blog post he wrote about then-graduate student-teacher Cheryl Abbate. The court stated the blog was an “extramural comment” protected under the tenure contract.
McAdams had alleged on his personal blog, “Marquette Warrior,” that Abbate stifled a student’s attempt Oct. 28, 2014, to present a view opposing “gay marriage” in her philosophy class — a characterization of events Abbate later disputed.
The student secretly recorded his confrontation of Abbate after class and then gave the recording to McAdams, his academic adviser. When McAdams wrote about the account, he linked to Abbate’s blog, where her contact information was two page clicks away. The post went viral and reached a new audience, and Abbate found her inbox flooded with a torrent of largely male readers sending her violent and obscene messages.
By December 2014, Abbate had left Marquette, and McAdams was suspended from campus.
A seven-member faculty hearing committee selected by the academic senate investigated and ultimately recommended in January 2016 that McAdams be suspended with benefits minus pay for one to two semesters. It stopped short of recommending McAdams’ dismissal, citing the “complex” nature of the case. Marquette President Michael Lovell adopted the recommendation, but then added the requirement that McAdams admit fault and apologize to Abbate by April 4, 2016.
Why American cop and whistleblower Mark Dougan turned to Russia for sanctuary
Editor’s Note: This new documentary from RT features Palm Beach Sheriff Deputy Mark Dougan, a whistleblower-turned-political emigre. It illustrates the corruption of a local law enforcement agency and the very real dangers of running a blog critical of one’s publicly-elected employer. If the United States had a truly free press Dougan’s story wouldn’t be suppressed. Note that RT is, of course, a “Kremlin-funded” news outlet.
While flying close to a small airstrip just over the US border with Canada, the passenger aboard a small Cessna seemed to have a heart attack. After an emergency landing, he miraculously recovered, jumped out of the plane, threw some money at the pilot and ran away. A few days later, he resurfaced in Russia. It may sound like a spy novel plot, but it’s just one episode in the true story of real-life American cop-turned-whistleblower, Mark Dougan. After exposing endemic corruption in the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, he had to fled the United States and found refuge in Russia.
After leaving the US Marine Corp in, Dougan wanted something more adventurous than an office job and became a police officer. After six years, he left the PBSO, appalled by the blatant criminal activity that he saw within the force. He later started a blog, giving honest cops a forum where they could anonymously discuss and expose illegal conduct by senior law enforcers, who predictably, hated it! After being hounded, harassed, and placed under surveillance for six years, The FBI raided John’s home and seized all his digital equipment; they even gave him his own code name; Bad Wolf.
That was when the whistleblower realised he had to flee and escaped to Russia, leaving behind his wife and young children. RTD’s new and exclusive film, Breaking Bad Wolf, tells his incredible story.
NaturalNews founder Mike Adams has launched a new website, Real.Video, that he intends to open to various content creators, some of whose work has already faced censorship on corporate-controlled sites such as YouTube and Vimeo.
In this July 6 update Adams explains the need for such an outlet, noting how thus far the Beta version of the project has been deluged with thousands of requests for new accounts. As of this writing a full-fledged version of Real.Video that can accommodate this has yet to be launched.
