The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
“Daddy, when did America fall? When did we become a Third World Country?”
Someday, many of the young adults will be asked this question by your children who will be unable to find the answer in the Common Core textbooks of the future. What will you say? What will you tell your children about the time America officially became a third world country? You might want to consider the banker-bailout date of 2008 when describing the collapse of America to your future children. America has indeed collapsed and we are living through the “settling of the dust”and are entering the post-collapse period of our history.
In 1945, at the close of World War II, America produced 50% of the world’s goods despite only having five percent of the population. In less than 65 years, the bottom fell out of the United States of America. It is tragic, beyond words, what has happened to our country. The following recounts some of the reasons for our decline.
In answer to the question, why did America fail, the following represents the truth.
America is in the midst of a three pronged plan to designed to bring devastation upon the United States.
- Pre-collapse strategy designed to bring America to her knees.
- The coming devastation of the American military will effectively end the reign of the American empire.
- The ongoing implementation of the New World Order (e.g. Agenda 21).
This articles summarizes the key elements of the pre-collapse strategy.
NAFTA, CAFTA and How America Got the SHAFTA
By applying the perspective of history, it becomes clear that the agenda of the original SPP which was to bring us the concept known as CANAMEXAMERICA was to be employed and made legal by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The plan called for the creation of an international corridor of highways, controlled by the globalists, but paid for by the American taxpayer. The plan was designed to erase all national boundaries between Canada, Mexico and the United States. SPP, often referred to as the North American Union, was designed to promote the free movement of all people in Central America to the United States. This is precisely what we are witnessing as this was codified into law by the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).
This plot to deculturalize alll Western nations is well underway with the Muslim invasion of Europe and the United States. We are living in such a bizarre time. Since when is the majority culture expected to acquiesce to the incoming minority culture? Yet, this is precisely what we are seeing which are millions of immigrants that refuse to assimilate. Yes, with a birth rate of 1.8, when we require 2.1 to maintain our present population, we need immigration, th but we need orderly and plannned immigration. Programs such as Social Security demand that we maintain our numbers. However, we do not need the corporate motivated and UN led kind of a free-for-all immmigration plan that is undermining the majority culture. How many third world immigrants can a nation take on before that nation becomes a third world nation?
The present immigration strategy presents a “death by a thousand cuts” strategy. I agree with Frosty Woolridge, we need a 10 year moratorium on immigration just to catch our breath.
The United States Military Code of Justice has essentially removed beastiality as a punishable offense. Do we really have to say any more about the moral decline of the United States? Well, actually, we do. Wells Fargo Wachovia and HSBC Bank engaged in rampant child sex trafficking and got off with a mere fine and nobody went to jail!
A minimm of 28,000 pastors belong to the DHS’ Clergy Response Team that is dedicated to preaching the word of government over the word of God. And this is all being done for the love of money in order to preserve the churches tax exempt status. Do you have the courage to face just how far from grace our churches have fallen? Go to the search engine of The Common Sense Show, and type in the name “Pastor Walter Mansfield”.
Of course, all this began when we took prayer out of the classroom.
Out of Control Debt
There are five numbers that every American should have etched in the collective minds:
- $19 trillion dollar deficit and this is the good news.
- $240 trillion dollar unfunded and mandated liabilities (e.g. Social Security and Medicare).
- $1.5 trillion dollar credit swap derivatives debt.
- $505 trillion dollar annual interest rate on the credit swap derivatives debt.
- The entire GDP of the planet is only $70 trillion dollars.
These debts could not be paid off in the 21st century, the 25th century, the 50th century, nor the 100th century.
Third world countries have spiraling out of control debt. Standard & Poor’s made it official when it changed its label for America’s national debt from “stable” to “negative.” Subsequently, America is now officially a “Third World country”. The US is facing debt restructuring similar to Greece, Italy, Spain and Cypress.
The debt crisis has also spread to nearly every state as 46 states out of 50 states are on the verge of bankruptcy and many of our cities are going broke. Detroit is the epitome of a third world city. America’s infrastructure is collapsing as evidenced by the pitiful condition of our roads which are quickly obtaining Third World status.
Does anyone still believe the movie, The Hunger Games, wasn’t delivering a clear message as to what lies ahead for all of us unless we can wake up enough people in time and change our course?
What a lot of people don’t seem to realize is that when the Greatest Depression of 2008 hit, the money that once filled the coffers of the American middle class did not just evaporate into thin air. That money flowed somewhere and where it flowed was into the pockets of the banksters and a few of their select minions courtesy of the banker bailouts.
Since 2008, cavernous income gaps characterize Third-World nations and the United States is right up there with the worst of the nations with regard to income disparity. The income gap between the rich and poor has increased at a staggering pace, while many more middle-class folks citizens are losing ground on a daily basis.
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities report found that the income gap between the wealthiest Americans and middle-income and working-class Americans has more than tripled in the past thirty years. Did you enjoy your prolonged nap while this was going on?
The CIA’s “Gini index,“ which reports on the world’s income distribution found that the United States has the 40th highest income gap disparity out of 136 nations measured. Nambia is the worst and Sweden is the best. The United States income disparity is comparable to Jamaica and Cameroon.
Unemployment numbers, food stamps, and home foreclosures continue to reach new record highs. Government-dependent people often have more discretionary income than a middle income worker making $60,000 per year.
And despite all of our economic woes, the economic free fall of our country has not financially touched the members of Congress as this constitutes another characteristic of Third World countries in which the ruling elite and their law making minions live high off the hog. The net worth of Congress continues to rise despite the onset of the Greatest Depression of 2008. The year 2008, was the year that the Wall Street took over the nation’s money, both nationally and individually and members of Congress laughed all the way to the bank. Financial disclosure forms analyzed by Roll Call magazine, using the minimum valuation of assets, showed that members of Congress, in 2010, had a collective net worth of over $2 billion, which constitutes a $390 million increase from the $1.65 billion members of Congress enjoyed in 2008 at the time of the first bailout.
Slavery As a Means to Fatten the Coffers of the Elite
Most Third World countries practice some form of overt and/or covert forms of slavery which serve to economically benefit the elite. America is no different. The US has simply traded one form of slavery for another.
Despite the fact that the United States makes up less than 5% of the world’s population, America’s prisons confine more than 25% of all people who are incarcerated on the entire planet. Several of these prisoners perform labor at twenty-three cents per hour while housed in our federal prisons contracted by the Bureau of Prisons’ UNICOR.
UNICOR is a for-profit corporation and it is the US government’s 39th largest contractor. Privatized prisons are the fastest growing prisons in the United States and they are normally guaranteed a 90% occupancy rate. This criminal corruption leads to a Third World type of abuse of the public by police departments in order to meet arrest quotas which guarantee the owners of the growing privatized prisons that they are promised occupancy rates will be met. Along these lines, a plethora of stories document how the New York Police Department plants drugs on innocent subjects in their controversial “stop and frisk” program in which, in October 2011, a former NYPD narcotics detective testified that he regularly saw police plant drugs on innocent citizens in order to meet preset arrest quotas. George H. W. Bush is one of the biggest players in the business of privatized prisons.
Slavery was codified into law when Obama signed Executive Order 13603.
A constant characteristic among third world nations is a substandard health care system. I recently polled a number of young adults as to where they thought the United States fell with regard to life expectancy as compared to the rest of the world. Before voting, many acknowledged that the US had slipped from its once lofty position with regard to health care. Some people guessed that we had fallen to fourth or fifth in longevity. Some people made even bolder predictions by stating that we might have fallen as far down the life expectancy model as 10th.
What is your vote? How long do Americans live in comparison to our international cohorts? After all, the United States spends twice as much as the average of any other modern country for health care. In the US, we spend 17.6% of our GDP on health care, by far the highest percentage in the world and what do we get for this Third World type of highway robbery?
- Fewer physicians (2.3 per 1,000 as compared to 3.1 for the rest of the world).
- The number of hospital beds are fewer than other nations (2.6 per 1,000 as compared to 3.4 for the rest of the world).
- The average American lifespan is 78.7 years in 2010, more than one year less than the rest of the World’s OCED nations.
Now to answer the previous mentioned survey question I posed to the group of young adults which asked how long Americans live in comparison with the rest of the world. Sadly, according to the CIA Factbook, the United States is 50th in world in terms of life expectancy. Hong Kong is eighth and we have fallen behind Bosnia and Herzegovina. Oh, and one other thing, Cubans live longer than Americans.
Are you planning on having a baby and want to ensure its safety during the birthing procedure? You would be better off moving to Cuba where they have a lower infant mortality rate than the United States. The United States is amazingly number 47 in the world in infant mortality.
In fact, in the United States you are far more likely to be killed by your doctor than you are by a firearm. Death by doctor exceeded 225,000, in a two year period while death by firearm was only 9,601.
So, Americans are paying far more for health care and reaping Third World type of benefits. Today, health care is not about increasing health and longevity, it is about separating American patients from as much of their hard-earned money as possible. Obamacare, which is off to a disastrous beginning, will prove to be the biggest genocidal and simultaneously bankrupting factor in American history.
The Evisceration of Personal Liberties
Everyday freedoms are often a casualty of a society in collapse. The NDAA has eliminated due process from our constitution which destroyed the Fifth, Sixth and Eight Amendments to the Constitution. The Patriot Act eliminated the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. Obama is threatening to destroy the Second Amendment, again, following the Oregon shooting. During a Presidential declared emergency, FEMA can snatch anything you own, including you (NDAA), thus, eliminating the First and Third Amendments. The entire constitution is on life support.
Homeland Security (DHS) is arming against the American people as evidenced by its recent 2.2 billion rounds of acquired ammunition to go with the 2700 armored vehicles recently purchased by DHS. These police powers typically go hand in hand with collapsing economies in Third World countries which is what we are witnessing in America and the following statistics bear this out.
Do you remember that intellectual giant that occupied the White House prior to Obama? His name is George W. Bush and in typical fashion he ignorantly stated “they (the terrorists) hate us because of our freedoms.” Do you remember that asinine statement? As with most things uttered by this intellectually deprived ex-President, Bush was dead wrong. The 2013 Legatum Institute’s Prosperity Index, notes that, with regard to personal freedom, America came in at 14th place which puts the US in good company with Uruguay and Costa Rica. And when it comes to the Safety & Security comparisons, America came in at 27th putting the US on par with Bulgaria. These factors need to be coupled with the fact that our small businesses and American citizens, those who bother to go to work, pay the highest taxes in the world, thus increasing our level of indentured servitude to the bankster run government.
Media Manipulation and Control
A government-sponsored media that censors information is a key component of Third World countries. In some countries, the media is openly owned by the State. In America, the corporations dominate the government and these same corporations own the media. Therefore, we have state-sponsored media control by default.
“In 1983, fifty corporations dominated most of every mass medium … In 1987, the fifty companies had shrunk to twenty-nine. … In 1990, the twenty-nine had shrunk to twenty three. … In 1997, the biggest firms numbered ten….Today there are only 8 giant media companies dominating the US media (Disney, AOL-Time Warner, Viacom, General Electric/NBC, Yahoo, Microsoft and Google).

Then there is former award winning CNN special correspondent, Amber Lyon, who left CNN because as she says, CNN was taking money from the federal government to embellish and openly fabricate some stories while not covering other stories.
The concentration of ownership has led to censorship when national and corporate interests overlap, and in typical Third World fashion, by default, we have government run media.
The simple solution is to turn off the television.
America is almost a completely conquered nation. We still have to fight and lose a war. In the meantime, you, as a parent and grandparent, might want to rehears what you will tell your children about why America and fell. Pay close attention to your answer to your child’s follow up question: Daddy and Mommy, what did you do to stop it? Of course we are assuming that you will survive to answer that question. But first, you must survive the coming war of devastation. That will be the topic of the part in this series.
