Former Green Beret Charged With Murder Of Suspected Taliban Bombmaker Who Killed Two Marines.


By LUIS MARTINEZDec 14, 2018, 4:59 PM ET

A former U.S. Army Green Beret has been charged with the 2010 murder of a man he suspected of being a Taliban bomb maker.

The charges follow multiple investigations of Maj. Mathew Golsteyn’s role in the man’s death that he once admitted to Fox News during a 2016 interview.

“Major Matthew Golsteyn’s immediate commander has determined that sufficient evidence exists to warrant the preferral of charges against him,” said Lt. Col. Loren Bymer, a spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

“Major Golsteyn has been charged with the murder of an Afghan male during his 2010 deployment to Afghanistan,” he continued.

On Thursday, Golsteyn’s attorney Philip Stackhouse tweeted that he had been charged with “premeditated murder, a death penalty offense for allegedly killing a Taliban bomb-maker during combat operations in Marjah, Afghanistan.”

The announcement of the murder charge against Golsteyn are the result of multiple Army investigations of his deployment to Helmand Province in southern Afghanistan as part of a Special Forces unit.

It was during that deployment that Golsteyn is alleged to have killed a man suspected of having been a Taliban bomb maker responsible for the deaths of two Marines.

Army Criminal Investigation Command’s initial investigation of Golsteyn began after he admitted in a 2011 CIA job interview that he had killed the man he suspected as being the bomb maker.

That investigation did not determine conclusively that Golsteyn had killed the man, but it resulted in his losing a Silver Star for heroism he had earned during the deployment.

A later review resulted in his leaving the Army in 2015 with a general discharge.

A new Army investigation was triggered following Golsteyn’s October, 2016 appearance on Fox News where acknowledged that he had killed the man during his deployment.

Golsteyn was recalled to active duty by the Army to await the results of the new investigation.

Stackhouse, Golsteyn’s attorney, said he would be “relentless in defending him.”

“MAJ Golsteyn is a humble servant-leader who saved countless lives, both American and Afghan, and has been recognized repeatedly for his valorous actions,” Stackhouse tweeted. “We will be relentless in defending him.

The Real Obituary Of George H.W. Bush Is A Evil One.


George Herbert Walker Bush spent his 94 years on this planet faithfully continuing what has now been a century-long legacy of creating and then profiting off global, criminal, human atrocities, a legacy begun by his father Prescott, a fellow Yale Man, and fellow member of the clandestine Skull and Bones Society.

Prescott, who provided the financial architecture for Nazism, aided and abetted Adolph Hitler in his rise to power, and even profited off slave labor at Auschwitz, would have no doubt been filled with the kind of pride reserved only for those missing the humanity chip altogether to have watched his son so faithfully carry on the tradition of providing the support for the death and destruction of millions and truly living the Bush family credo that, for some, war can be profitable business.

Just like his father, George H.W. Bush would go on to amass great wealth and political power through the manufacturing of enemies out of thin air, and then in turn personally profit through his covert business dealings with them. In stunningly similar fashion, like a poisonous spider’s web expertly spun and stretching through time and space, George H.W. Bush’s relationship with the Bin Ladin family through the Carlyle Group during the Middle East wars echoes the dark alliance of Prescott and Hitler. This axis of ungodly evil is the bedrock upon which the entire Bush family fortune and political dynasty has been built.

Bush’s deadly political career began with the running of a now legendary ad that was so racist, his campaign director Lee Atwater not only considered it his single greatest regret, but used the final minutes of his own life to apologize for it. Bush, on the other hand, showed no remorse. Rather, he busied himself making what we now know was a stunningly dishonest case for war.

Thirteen years before his son, Prescott’s Grandson, George W. Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, Bush Sr. looked square into the face of the American public and without wavering stated that Iraq had invaded Kuwait “without provocation or warning.” Unbeknownst to us however, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq had given a green light to Saddam Hussein just the week before. Imagine Saddam’s surprise when Bush turned around and deployed U.S. troops to the Gulf. To Bush’s credit, using fabricated intelligence in the form of fake satellite images about a completely fictional Iraqi buildup that just didn’t exist, was little more than child’s play for a man who had served as the Director of the C.I.A.

During his year as head of the world’s most clandestine organization, at the top of the list of Bush’s many international atrocities, was without question Operation Condor, a covert campaign of political repression, state terror and political assassinations. The C.I.A. program, which suppressed active or potential opposition movements against the participating South American governments, was directly responsible for at least 60,000 deaths, nearly all civilian victims, which included dissidents, union and peasant leaders, priests and nuns, students, teachers and intellectuals.

But, above all else, perhaps Bush’s most distinguishing trait and what he will no doubt be most remembered for, was his unmatched talent for the dark craft of the cover-up. From his undeniable involvement in the deep state JFK coup, to the drug smuggling and arms dealing of the Iran Contra affair, from his active leadership role in facilitating the events of 9/11 including the wars that followed, to the trafficking of children for the satanic ritual abuse and blackmail of Washington elites during the Franklin scandal, committing unthinkable criminal acts and then systematically burying them from public view came terrifyingly natural to George, a skill which he put to frequent use throughout his long and destructive career.

With his passing, may the Bush reign of deep state terror, devilishly masquerading as democracy and politics, a malignant cancer for both America and planet Earth, finally and forever be eradicated from our fair world. May the satanic axiom by which he and all like him lived, ‘do as thou wilt,’ be understood by humanity once and for all, and forever replaced worldwide with ‘do unto others,’ the light of Christ. And may the evil Luciferian darkness his existence edified be buried with him, never to resurface again.

Navy Creating Attack Sub Aggressor Unit to Train to Fight Against Russia, China.

November 8, 2018 4:00 AM • Updated: November 7, 2018 8:58 PM

ARLINGTON, Va. — The U.S. Navy submarine force is creating an aggressor squadron as one initiative to ensure all subs are combat-ready as the service trains to take on China and Russia, the commander of Naval Submarine Forces said on Wednesday.

Vice Adm. Charles Richard, who took command in August, drew attention during the change of command ceremony by telling the force to “prepare for battle.”

He has backed up those words with actions in the months since, moving ahead with a plan – updated in March to reflect the National Defense Strategy – that includes refocusing training and certification on combat and developing new tools and concepts to support high-end warfighting.

The plan – called the Commander’s Intent for the United States Submarine Force and Supporting Organizations – led to an overhaul of training for the attack submarine force, Richard said today while addressing the Naval Submarine League at its annual conference.

“We have restructured and retuned the fast attack training period to ensure that we’re ready for that high-end fight, including restructuring what we used to call the Tactical Readiness Evaluation, and it is now a Combat Readiness Evaluation to ensure we’re focused on warfighting,” he said.
“We’ve updated the deployment certification process to eliminate duplication, put the right focus in the right place. I’ll tell you that I am driving to put competition in everything we do inside the submarine force. I want to produce winners and losers just like we do in battle; it does you no good to be at standards if your opponent is more at standards than you are. You still lose, and in this competition, you may not come home.”

The new aggressor squadron fits in with the desire to create more high-end sub-on-sub competitions and ensure the Navy is ready to win. Richard said the plan mimics what the naval aviation community has at “Top Gun.”

Navy spokeswoman Cmdr. Sarah Self-Kyler told USNI News at the event that, unlike Top Gun, the squadron won’t have its own submarines dedicated to training the squadron and fighting other submarines in training events. Instead, the squadron will include a yet-to-be-determined number of personnel – which Richard said would include active and reserve sailors and civilians – and that personnel would get to work with submarines and sub crews as allowed by operational and training schedules.

Richard, calling the new group “a cadre that does nothing but emulate red in all of our training and certification exercises, said “we’re taking a page from naval aviation and we’re establishing an aggressor squadron with a team that will become experts in employing our adversaries’ potential capabilities and then set them up to be able to go head-to-head with our units so that we’re always training against what we think is the highest fidelity simulation I can give them in terms of what they might be able to expect when they go into combat.”

The Commander’s Intent plan also outlines an Undersea Rapid Capability Initiatives (URCI) program that Richard said not only delivers “stuff” but also concepts of operations, tactics, maintenance strategies and more.

“I can’t go into a lot of detail given the nature of the work – it is classified – but I am able to tell you that we are working on 26 major future projects, including the Navy’s number-one priority of strategic deterrence; 13 URCIs; 11 operational initiatives; and a series of advanced workshops and military exercises designed to expand our capabilities in the undersea domain. We are pursuing next-generation weapons, multi-domain sensors, comms systems, navigation aids, and unmanned and autonomous technologies. In some cases, these capabilities are revolutionary and will inform future programs of record.”

On the hardware side of this rapid development, Richard highlighted the work the Navy’s Digital Warfare Office is helping them do to move full speed ahead with “the employment and naval application of artificial intelligence and machine learning.” He also cited DARPA and the Office of Naval Research and their work with prototypes of unmanned systems and advanced sensors that have made significant progress in development and testing in just the past couple of years.

Lastly, he cited the ingenuity of the fleet in embracing additive manufacturing as a means of boosting readiness and helping reduce their logistics footprint.

“Onboard our submarines, we are embracing the future of at-sea maintenance and repair. We are actively experimenting with additive manufacturing and working expediently to provide this capability to all of my ships – all of my boats will get 3D printers in the near-term,” Richard said.

He noted that SUBSAFE standards would still apply but that the printers could still prove to be a useful asset to the crews. The crew of attack submarine USS Virginia (SSN-774) bought their own 3D printer and “in using that, built themselves a part at sea and helped keep their boat on deployment. It is that type of initiative and problem-solving that happens daily across the force.”

Navy Vice Admiral Scott Stearney Death A Suicide Or Murder?



Whoa! Wait a just a damn minute here. An active duty vice admiral kills himself? At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy nut, something does not smell right here. Countless murders in military have been covered up by the military by alleging the person committed suicide.

People who are suspicious about military suicides jokingly say the person was probably “suicided.” The term “suicided” is a mocking, made-up code word that says the person didn’t actually commit suicide, but was probably murdered and the murder is being covered-up as a suicide. So, it begs the question, did VADM Scott Stearney commit suicide, or was he “suicided?”


There are people who still believe that James Forrestal was murdered and did not commit suicide. Forrestal was SECNAV and SECDEF but never an admiral in the Navy as we first reported. He was an officer in the Navy, but did not attain flag rank. Thank you to reader “Matt” who corrected that error. The official line on what happened to James Forrestal goes as follows…

Forrestal told associates he had decided to resign, he was allegedly surprised when President Harry Truman asked for his resignation as Secretary of Defense. His letter of resignation was tendered on March 28, 1949.

On the day of Forrestal’s resignation from office, he allegedly is said to have gone into a strange daze and was flown on a Navy airplane to the estate of Under Secretary of State Robert A. Lovett in Hobe Sound, Florida, where Forrestal’s wife, Josephine, was vacationing.

Dr. William C. Menninger of the Menninger Clinic in Kansas was consulted and he diagnosed Forrestal as having “severe depression” of the type “seen in operational fatigue during the war”.

The Menninger Clinic had successfully treated similar cases during World War II, but Forrestal’s wife, his friend and associate Ferdinand Eberstadt, Dr. Menninger and Navy psychiatrist Captain Dr. George N. Raines decided to send the former Secretary of Defense to the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) in Bethesda, Maryland.

Forrestal was checked into NNMC five days later. There was a decision to house James Forrestal on the 16th floor instead of the first floor. Forrestal’s condition was officially announced as “nervous and physical exhaustion”; his lead doctor, Captain Raines, diagnosed his condition as “depression” or “reactive depression”.

As a person who prized anonymity and once stated that his hobby was “obscurity”, Forrestal and his policies had been the constant target of vicious personal attacks from columnists, including Drew Pearson and Walter Winchell. Pearson’s protégé, Jack Anderson, later asserted that Pearson “hectored Forrestal with innuendos and false accusations”.

Forrestal seemed to be on the road to recovery, having regained 12 pounds since his entry into the hospital. However, in the early morning hours of May 22, 1949 the admiral’s body, clad only in the bottom half of a pair of pajamas, was found on a third-floor roof below the sixteenth-floor kitchen across the hall from his room.

Forrestal’s alleged last written statement, touted in the contemporary press and later biographers as an implied suicide note, was part of a poem from W. M. Praed’s translation of Sophocles’ tragedy Ajax. The truth may never be known as to whether Forrestal was murdered, committed suicide or was driven to suicide which is also murder.

There is someone out there who knows what really happened to Vice Admiral Scott Stearney. has our ears opened if you want to tell us what really happened to Vice Admiral Stearney and the story behind it.

Here’s one “official” report on the Stearney “suicide.”

Vice Admiral Scott Stearney, who oversaw US Navy forces in the Middle East, was found dead on Saturday in his residence in Bahrain, according to navy officials. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are cooperating on an investigation.

However, no foul play was suspected.“This is devastating news for the Stearney family, for the team at 5th Fleet, and for the entire Navy,” Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said in a video statement. “Scott Stearney was a decorated naval warrior.
He was a devoted husband and father, and he was a good friend of all of us,” Richardson said.Stearney was the commander of US Naval Forces Central Command and of the US Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet, which is responsible for patrolling the Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, Red Sea, Arabian Sea and parts of the Indian Ocean.
In recent years, the fleet has dealt with potential threats from pirates and weapons smugglers as well as Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats and Houthi rebels firing missiles at commercial ships from Yemen.In 2004, the fleet’s surface warships were ordered to hold an “ethics, trust, responsibility and mission stand down” after two sailors were accused of stealing money and other valuables during an inspection of a Singaporean vessel in the Gulf.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Stearney graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an economics degree before joining the US Navy in 1982. Two years later, he became a pilot and logged more than 4,500 flight hours over the course of his career, which also included stints as a trainer and service in Afghanistan.
In May, Stearney was appointed as commander of the US Naval Forces Central Command and of the Fifth Fleet, positions he occupied until his death. Rear Admiral Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of Fifth Fleet, has assumed its command, while Vice Admiral James Malloy, a deputy chief of naval operations, is preparing to fly out to Bahrain to take command in the interim. Further information is expected as the investigation continues.

US Admiral Scott Stearney Murdered in Bahrain? Rumored to Have Opposed False Flag (Zionists Will Fake Iranian Attack on US Naval Vessel)

ROBERT STEELE:  I am told he was murdered by Bahreini security services at the request of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) element attached to the fifth fleet. I have no direct knowledge. My source tells me he was murdered because he explicitly opposed the planned false flag attack in collaboration with the Israeli Navy simulating an Iranian patrol boat missile attack on a US naval vassal.

Online Abortion Pills Come To The U.S., As The Right To Abortion Is On The Line.


Online abortion pills come to the U.S., as the right to abortion is on the line

by Marie McCullough, Posted: November 9, 2018 – 5:30 AM

Foes and defenders of abortion rights are preparing for seismic shifts in the abortion landscape.

Voters in Alabama and West Virginia on Tuesday approved “trigger” measures that could pave the way for state abortion bans if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade — a possibility raised by the appointment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the high court.


Abortion pills are safe and effective. Why can’t U.S. women buy them online?

Even while Roe’s constitutional right to abortion remains in place, abortion has become so hard to get in many parts of the country that a new online service called Aid Access quietly launched during the summer to provide prescription abortion pills by mail-order to U.S. women. Founder Rebecca Gomperts, a Dutch physician and activist, has for years run Women on Web, which ships abortion pills to women in countries where abortion is illegal.

Meanwhile, the Self Induced Abortion (SIA) Legal Team last month unveiled a helpline and website to provide information and attorney referrals for people who have ended their own pregnancies and fear they will be arrested or prosecuted.

“We know of at least 21 people who have been arrested, and some prosecuted, either for ending their own pregnancy or helping others” since 1973, said Jill E. Adams, a Berkeley, Calif., lawyer who founded the SIA team. “Now that we have the helpline, we expect we’ll learn about more.”

Tuesday’s midterm elections illustrated the ever-deepening divide over abortion.Voters in Oregon overwhelmingly opted to preserve public funding for abortion, while Alabama passed a state constitutional amendment that recognizes “the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children.” West Virginia amended its constitution to declare no right to abortion.

If Roe’s legal framework is abolished, 20 other states already have laws that could be used to further restrict or ban abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research center that supports abortion rights. (Pennsylvania and New Jersey are not among the 20.)

No matter what happens, activists expect demand will only grow for medication-driven terminations, which now account for a third of all U.S. abortions. The regimen involves two drugs: Mifepristone, sold in the U.S. by Danco Laboratories and branded Mifeprex, disrupts the pregnancy, then misoprostol triggers uterine contractions that expel the grape-size fetus.


In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration updated mifepristone’s labeling to lower the dose and let women use it through nine weeks of pregnancy. But women still have to make two visits to the doctor, and they can’t get the drug from pharmacies. It can only be dispensed in clinics or medical offices by specially certified health-care providers.

By contrast, Women on Web, which uses mifepristone made by an Indian company, provides pills after the woman consults online with the prescribing doctor and gets a blood test. An ultrasound is recommended, but not required. Instructions explain how to use the drugs, what to expect, and when to see a doctor if problems occur.

Gomperts did not respond to a request for an interview. But the Atlantic reported last month that Gomperts created Aid Access because she had been deluged with pleas from U.S. women. She said 600 women had so far gotten pills through the website. “She claims that every step of the Aid Access process is legal,” the article said.

Whether the FDA will agree that it is legal remains to be seen. In an emailed statement, the agency said it is “evaluating the allegations to assess potential violations of U.S. law,” and it “warns consumers not to buy Mifeprex online because doing so bypasses important safeguards.”

The purported safeguards that limit dispensing are excessive, said Susan Wood, former director of the FDA’s Office of Women’s Health.

“There’s been a lot of [scientific] data and experience with this medication,” said Wood, now a health-policy professor at George Washington University’s School of Public Health. “It’s more and more clear … the restrictions should have been removed when it was relabeled a few years ago.”

As part of that relabeling, the FDA’s own review concluded that “medication abortion has been increasingly used as its efficacy and safety have become well-established by both research and experience, and serious complications have proven to be extremely rare.”

Americans United for Life, an anti-abortion law firm, contends that the Aid Access model is not only unsafe, but in violation of U.S. postal and other regulations.

“An ultrasound should be administered before the abortion pill because otherwise, you can’t rule out an ectopic pregnancy, which is very dangerous,” said AUL chief legal officer Steven H. Aden.

“We’re also talking to senators on Capitol Hill,” he said, about federal intervention against the new web-based service.

The Holocaust Of American Babies In the United States.

Over 60 Million Babies Have Been Aborted Since Roe v. Wade
By Jerry Barrett

“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Luke 17:2

In the study of physics you learn that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This also seems to occur with almost every decision we make on a daily basis. Sometimes these decisions lead to dire circumstances.

The 1960s heralded a massive shift in American culture. The family model was spun off its axis as the sexual revolution and drug culture came into popular existence. Ward and June Cleaver, along with Christian morals, were relegated to the dustbin of history. It was now a time of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.

However, along with the “free love” movement came other unintended consequences. Unwanted pregnancies being one of the major inconveniences.

During the 1950s and 60s, back alley doctors performed an estimated one-million abortions per year. Over one thousand women died each year as a result of this illegal procedure. Many charged in excess of $1,000 for their services, and anaesthesia was not used because they wanted the patient out of their place quickly.

Murder on Demand

In the 1960s, an age of protests and movements, women began to actively target the subject of abortion. Many spoke of their own illegal abortions and insisted that abortion-on-demand be made legal. The liberal clergy joined in this effort along with other civil liberty groups. 

Some states began to soften their abortion laws, allowing for certain circumstances, but leaving the final decision up to the doctors and hospitals. New York state, in 1970, allowed on-demand abortions up to the 24th week if it was done in a medical facility with a doctor. Women who could afford this “procedure” travelled in droves to these “legal” facilities.

On January 22nd, 1973, murder on demand was authorized by our Supreme Court in the now infamous Roe v. Wade decision. Medicaid funded fetal executions until Congress passed the Hyde Amendment in 1976. This, however, was not going to stop the mass murder of American babies.


Harming seaturtles, eagles and their eggs is illegal, subject to fines and imprisonment. But a human pre-born baby, whom God knew before being formed in a mother’s womb, made in God’s own image, is just a “choice.”

Planned Parenthood began receiving federal funds in 1970, thanks to Richard Nixon and a bipartisan agreement in Congress. At the time this topic was couched as “family planning,” thus making it palatable to the masses. Planned Parenthood currently receives over $500 million each year, most of it used to fund abortions.


While being federally funded under the guise of “family planning” one would think that adoption would be its most popular option. However, adoption referrals through Planned Parenthood pale in comparison to murder on demand. In 2014, there were 149 abortions for each adoption referral.

Does Planned Parenthood Have Quotas?

Former employees of Planned Parenthood have come forth with shocking claims of quotas and corrective measures against under-performing clinics. Even clinics that do not perform abortions are expected to refer a certain number of patients to clinics that do.

In an interview with The Washington Times, Sue Thayer, a former clinic manager, claimed that employees were trained to manipulate women into choosing abortion. The most successful argument was bringing up the cost of raising a family.

Ms. Thayer also stated that Planned Parenthood offered perks for clinics that exceeded their abortion quotas. Pizza parties and paid time off were some of the rewards issued.

Selling Body Parts for Profit

United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recently opened an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts. In 2016, a House Selective Panel on Infant Lives produced documents that exposed technicians at an abortion clinic who were paid extra for the number of fetal body parts they obtained.

These technicians would obtain the mother’s consent for donating the fetal tissue without disclosing their being paid bonuses. So, armed with a wish list from a tissue procurement business, these technicians set about to enrich themselves, as well as the clinic. Planned Parenthood has vehemently defended the legality of its fetal parts harvesting.

When Is a Fetus a Human?

Our society does not condone murder of a human being unless it is in self-defense, in war—or abortion. However, if a drunk driver were to plow into a vehicle with a pregnant woman—whether she is on her way to an abortion clinic or not—and kills the fetus, this driver could be charged with vehicular manslaughter for killing the baby.

This begs the question, when does a fetus become a human? There is no concise definition, only political and scientific opinions. Studies have shown, however, that fetus’ do feel pain at 20 weeks or earlier. They have been observed pulling away from harmful stimuli such as needles and release stress hormones in response to painful procedures.

Ron Paul, while a congressman, repeatedly introduced the “Sanctity of Life Act” which defined life as beginning at conception. The “pro-life” Republicans in Congress never let this bill see the light of day. Last year Senator Rand Paul introduced the “Life at Conception Act,” but neither Republican leaders nor Donald Trump have done anything to promote this bill. How does Donald Trump plan to make America great again by continuing to allow legalized murder of over 1,800 babies a day?

The American Holocaust

To date, over 60 million babies have been murdered! Let that number sink in. 60 million babies. What if one of them may have been able to cure cancer, or been a future president? This is a holocaust of epic proportion. No other words can describe it.

No race is immune to this genocide either. Over 50% of all Hispanic and Black pregnancies end in abortion, though being only 30% of the population. Caucasians, being 60% percent of the population, have 37% of pregnancies which end in abortion.

Is Abortion Population Control Writ Large?

At the Earth Summit held in Brazil in 1992, the United Nations created a plan with regard to sustainable development. One of the goals set by the agenda was population control.

The globalists and environmental whackos have long stated that the population on earth must be reduced to fivehundred million people. This would allow “Mother Earth” to fully support man and beast. These people seem to believe that abortion is the least visible, and most ideal means of completing this goal.

What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

The Bible does not specifically speak on the topic of abortion. However there are numerous teachings in the Bible that make it clear what God’s view of abortion is.

In Jeremiah 1:5 we learn that God knows us before He forms us in the womb. In Psalms 139:13-14 we learn that God has an active role in our creation and formation in the womb.

If you have ever been blessed to witness the birth of your child, you can relate to Jesus’ words in John 16:21: “A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.”

The Bolsheviks murdered 66 million people according to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Mao Tse Tung and Pol Pot respectively murdered millions of their citizens. Abortionists in America will soon surpass these unbelievable numbers. But there shall be a high price to pay for this holocaust of Americans.

Jesus warned those who would harm the children:


“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”  Luke 17:2


Over Half Of America Gets More In Welfare Than It Pays In Taxes.
by Tyler Durden
Wed, 10/24/2018 – 15:50

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

More than half of Americans receive more money in various types of government transfer payments (Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, Social Security) than they pay in federal taxes.


According to a report released this year by the Congressional Budget Office, only the top two income quintiles in the United States pay more in taxes than they receive in government transfers.



Not surprisingly, the lowest income quintiles receive far more in transfers than they pay in taxes:

In the lowest quintile, households pay only $400 in taxes (as of 2014, the most recent data available) while receiving more than $16,000 in various types of tax-funded transfer payments.

The end result is households in the bottom three quintiles have higher incomes after taxes and transfers than they do before taxes and transfers:

The second-to-top quintile is slightly worse off after taxes and transfers, and the highest quintile is sizably worse off. In other words, the top two income quintiles are subsidizing the bottom three, and the advantage, proportionally speaking, gets larger as income goes down.
The Politics of a Majority on the Dole

The political implications of this are considerable. As Ludwig von Mises once noted, once we get to the point that a majority of the voting population receives more in benefits than it pays in taxes, then voters will demand more and more wealth be transferred to them through government programs. It will then become politically necessary to extract larger and larger amounts of wealth from a minority in order to subsidize the majority.

Market economics will become less and less popular because the voters will have realized they can — in the words of James Bovard — “vote for a living” instead of work for a living.

These findings don’t always apply at the level of the individual household, of course. In the middle quintile, especially, we’ll find some households that are indeed worse off after taxes and transfers than before. This will especially be the case for households that do not yet receive old-age benefits such as Medicare and Social Security. Those households are currently being taxed to pay for current recipients of SS and Medicare. Later, however, those households will begin to receive those benefits. And, over a lifetime, they’re likely to receive more in benefits than what they “paid in.” This notion of “paying in,” however, is pure fiction, and there is no “trust fund” for old-age benefits, and all benefits received at any given time are funded via taxation of current wage earners.

As far as politics goes, this latter fact is very important because voters receiving old-age benefits know that any significant cut in government spending and government taxation is likely to necessitate a decline in paid benefits. This is why neither major party ever seriously talks about cutting Medicare or Social Security, and why Donald Trump has even recently declared his own love for Medicare. It’s simply a redistribution of income and wealth from current wage earners to current recipients, and for most elected officials, attempting to cut these benefits would be political suicide.

At the low end, benefits more frequently take the form of “means-tested” benefits such as Medicaid and food stamps. And since these benefits are geared toward low-income earners, we naturally see more benefits going toward the lowest earners. Indeed, in the lowest quintile, market income is less than half of income after taxes and transfers.

But for many voters, the reality is this: any significant cuts in federal spending will mean less government benefits, either now or later.

(And don’t forget that the data here doesn’t even account for government employees whose “market” income is also government funded. In the case of those workers, cuts in government spending will reduce both their market income and their transfer income.)

Since many households at both the lowest end and near the middle receive more in benefits than they pay in taxes, we end up with a situation in which the voters think tax cuts don’t benefit them much — but spending cuts definitely do hurt them.

Thus, the political outcome is one in which there is plenty of political pressure to maintain spending levels — or increase them — while tax cuts aren’t as popular.
Transfer Income Is Growing as a Portion of Market Incomes

Looking at transfer incomes as a percentage of market incomes, by quintile, we find significant growth since the dot-com bust of 2001:

With the lowest quintile, transfer payments declined during the 1990’s economic expansion, and in the wake of the 1996 welfare reform. But government transfer payments grew again following the 2001-2002 recession. Transfers dipped again as the US approached the 2008 bust, and have grown sizably ever since.

Indeed, as of 2014, transfers by this measure were at an all-time high for the second-to-lowest quintile, and were near an all-time hight for the lowest quintile.

But in all quintiles, transfers have increased proportional to market income, whether due to stagnating market income or growing transfer payments. an increasing role for transfer payments can also give a false impression of overall income growth since official income numbers, as provided by federal agencies such as the Census Bureau, usually include transfer payments and other taxpayer-funded sources of income in the income data. Basically, transfer payments are padding the income data — paid for by the top income quintiles.
Perceptions Matter

Like all statistics of this sort, though, we can’t get a complete picture from this alone. This data only tells us about transfer payments — which are easy to track — and doesn’t tell us much about the many other ways that governments transfer wealth and income. For instance, we must also consider how regulations negatively impact the incomes of employees and business owners at all levels. And we must not ignore how money-supply inflation tends to hurt the poor the most, while tending to favor higher-income groups. And then there are government contracts — such as high-tech weapons contracts that tend to benefit higher income groups as well.

Ultimately, though, perceptions often matter more than the details behind the numbers. The CBO report reminds us that a great many voters receive government welfare checks of various types, and the perception is that any true cuts in spending will bring a high cost to those who have become accustomed to their taxpayer funded benefits. Ultimately, the effects on voting patters and public policy will be very real.
