12 Numbers Which Prove That Americans Are Sick And Tired Of Politics As Usual Michael Snyder Economic Collapse April 25, 2014 The American people are increasingly waking up to the fact that nothing ever seems to change in Washington D.C. no matter which political party is in power. In fact, as you will see later on in this article, an all-time high 53 percent of all Americans believe that neither party “represents the American people”. Over the past several decades, we have sent a Bush, a Clinton, another Bush and an Obama to the White House, but the policies coming out of Washington have remained pretty much the same the entire time. The mainstream media would have us believe that the Republicans and the Democrats are constantly fighting like cats and dogs, but the truth is that the Republicans want to take us to the same place that the Democrats want to take us – just a little more slowly perhaps. And behind the scenes, Republicans and Democrats have a good time with one another and they are ultimately controlled by the same set of oligarchs. The Americans people are really starting to recognize what a sham our system has become, and the numbers show that they are quite fed up with it. I truly wish that things were different. When I was much younger, I was actively involved in politics and I enthusiastically campaigned for certain candidates. But then when they got to Washington D.C., they never did most of the things that they promised to do during their campaigns. I was quite bewildered by this. At the time, I concluded that we just needed to send even more “good politicians” to D.C. and then things would finally turn around. But things never did turn around. No matter which party had the upper hand, the same garbage continued to spew forth from Washington. Ultimately, like millions of other Americans, I have come to see that there is not really much of a difference between Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi on one side, and John

Boehner, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Jeb Bush on the other side. Sure, if you listen to their campaign speeches you might be tempted to think that they were polar opposites, but when you watch what they actually do there is not that much that really separates them. Fortunately, large numbers of Americans are starting to see through this disgusting charade. Most of our politicians are con men that tell us what we want to hear during their campaigns, and then after they are elected they forget all about us. Dissatisfaction with these politicians has risen to unprecedented levels in recent years, and that could be a good thing. The following are 12 numbers which prove that Americans are sick and tired of politics as usual… #1 A national Rasmussen Reports survey has found that an all-time high 53 percent of all Americans believe that neither major political party ”represents the American people”. #2 According to a Real Clear Politics average of national polls, only 29 percent of Americans believe that the country is heading in the right direction. #3 According to a Real Clear Politics average of national polls, Americans disapprove of the job that Barack Obama is doing by a 52.2 to 43.7 percent margin. #4 According to a Real Clear Politics average of national polls, Americans disapprove of the job that Congress is doing by a 77.6 percent to 14.2 percent margin. #5 52 percent of Americans “do not think the economy is fair to those willing to work hard”. #6 65 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the U.S. system of government and its effectiveness”. That is the highest level of dissatisfaction that Gallup has ever recorded. #7 Only 4 percent of Americans believe that it would “change Congress for the worse” if every member was voted out during the next election. #8 An all-time low 31 percent of Americans identify themselves as Democrats. #9 An all-time low 25 percent of Americans identify themselves as Republicans. #10 An all-time high 42 percent of Americans identify themselves as Independents. #11 60 percent of Americans report feeling “angry or irritable”. Two years ago that number was at 50 percent. #12 70 percent of Americans do not have confidence that the federal government will “make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014″. Of course at the heart of much of this dissatisfaction is the continuing problems in our economy. For example, check out the Gallup daily employment tracking survey that you can find right here. As you can see, the payroll to population number (those Americans working 30 hours a week or more) has been flatlining in the low forties for more than four years now. The truth is that there never has been an employment recovery in this nation since the last recession. For much more on all this, please see my previous article entitled “This Is What Employment In America Really Looks Like…” The last wave of the economic crisis really devastated the middle class, and as a result record numbers of Americans have become dependent on the government. As I mentioned in one recent article, ten years ago the number of women working outnumbered the number of women on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs. No wonder so many Americans are so angry. Things are not nearly as good as they used to be. Unfortunately, even though so many people are angry and frustrated, there is very little consensus on the solutions to our problems.

Many Americans even want to throw out the principles that this country was founded upon entirely. For example, one recent survey discovered that 59 percent of all Americans believe that the U.S. Constitution is “outdated”. That is a very chilling number. We live at a time when Americans are becoming increasingly ignorant about who we are, where we came from and how we get here. And a lot of our fellow citizens do not even know how our system of government works. One survey actually found that only 25 percent of all Americans knew how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans knew how many U.S. senators there are (100). In the final analysis, it is hard to be optimistic about a political solution to any of our major problems in the near future. Most of our politicians are deeply corrupt, the American people are incredibly angry and are deeply divided, and the vast majority of campaigns for federal office are won by the candidate that raises the most money. But perhaps there is something that I am missing. So what do you think? Do you believe that there is hope that we can get Washington D.C. turned around in the near future? Intelligence Head Who Lied To Congress Bans Employees From Talking To Media Steve Watson Infowars.com April 25th, 2014 “Henceforward, the only news about intelligence is to be authorized news.” The Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, who notoriously lied to Congress over the scope of the NSA’s mass surveillance program, has issued a directive that effectively bans anyone working for any US intelligence agency from talking to the media or journalists. The directive, which will be seen as many as an all out assault on the First Amendment rights of intelligence employees, says that personnel “must obtain authorization for contacts with the media” on

any “intelligence-related information”. The directive also states that if employees for any reason run into journalists they will be bound to inform their superiors in the intelligence community. Employees “must also report… unplanned or unintentional contact with the media on covered matters,” the directive states. Clapper is seemingly obsessed with shutting down all external avenues for whistle blowers to release sensitive information. Stephen Aftergood of watchdog group Federation of American Scientists, notes that the new directive “reflects — and escalates — tensions between the government and the press over leaks of classified information.” “Significantly, however, the new prohibition does not distinguish between classified and unclassified intelligence information.” Aftergood notes, “The ‘covered matters’ that require prior authorization before an employee may discuss them with a reporter extend to any topic that is ‘related’ to intelligence, irrespective of its classification status.” The directive states that “at a minimum” violations of the new policy “will be handled in the same manner as a security violation.” Any employees found to have conversed on such “matters” with journalists could be subject to criminal prosecution. “IC employees who are found to be in violation of this IC policy may be subject to administrative actions that may include revocation of security clearance or termination of employment,” the directive states. When it comes to what quantifies “the media” as far as Clapper’s directive is concerned, it is very broadly “any person… engaged in the collection, production, or dissemination to the public of information in any form related to topics of national security….”. “Essentially, the directive seeks to ensure that the only contacts that occur between intelligence community employees and the press are those that have been approved in advance. Henceforward, the only news about intelligence is to be authorized news.” Aftergood writes. Clapper, currently giving speeches to University students, begging them to stop thinking of Edward Snowden as a hero, has previously described the whistle blower as a criminal, and has referred to the journalists who have copies of his NSA documents as his “accomplices”. Clapper is yet to face any repercussions, despite the fact that he has himself admitted lying to Congress about the NSA’s spying techniques. INFOWARS.COM BECAUSE THERE'S A WAR ON FOR YOUR MIND
