The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Inner Cities, Violence, Poverty, Gangs, Drugs, BLM, Shaming, Guilt, Globalism

politiciansBy Jon Rappoport

Suppose, instead of meeting for three hours with Black Lives Matter leaders…

The President of the United States, seized with some unexplainable attack of conscience, or a drug-induced revelation, stood up in front of television cameras and spoke to the nation and the world about…

The real web that entangles and holds inner cities hostage.

Suppose the President suddenly said:

“My fellow Americans, the first thing you have to know is that, since 1966, when the federal government declared a War on Poverty, it has spent some two trillion dollars, much of it earmarked for the inner cities of America. And now, today, those areas are worse off than ever.

“For various reasons, including massive theft of funds, this War is a total failure.

“Second, the elite march toward Globalism—the control of the planet exercised by a few powerful groups—has purposely sent manufacturing jobs out of America, and out of inner cities, to Third World countries—and one effect has been the massive loss of jobs here.

“Poverty, already a fact of life in inner cities, has spread like wildfire.

“On top of all this, we have seen the expansion of criminal gangs in poverty-stricken urban communities. Violence and fear there is a way of life. And there has never been a comprehensive federal strategy for ridding our cities of this abominable scourge.

“Do you want to know why? Because gangs cooperate with Mexican cartels to distribute street drugs across America. Gangs have been vital cogs in that machine. And the federal government is in the drug business. I should say, certain players in the government, attached to government, above and behind government—bankers, for example—profit greatly from this industry.

“For instance, federal agencies struck a deal with the Sinaloa Cartel years ago, marking out free and open routes between our southern border and several US hub cities. Sinaloa does uninterrupted trafficking along those routes. No significant arrests are made. No interventions occur.

“In return for this accommodation, Sinaloa passes along actionable intelligence on its rival cartels, and our federal agencies can and do make arrests and seizures in those cases.

“Wiping out the American gang scourge would put a crimp in the permitted drug business, and therefore, those groups are left in place. We, the government, pretend these gangs are little more than ‘disadvantaged youth’ who need an opportunity to fulfill themselves. We do everything in our power to frame the problem in terms of sociological causes—and we purposely avoid the stark fact that these boys and men commit terrible crimes and hold inner cities hostage by creating and sustaining a climate of fear and danger and drug addiction.

“In truth, police brutality accounts for a very small fraction of lives lost in those inner city communities.

“Meanwhile, the relatively few citizens of inner cities who do manage, against heavy odds, to launch successful local businesses, are never deployed to spearhead and teach their neighbors how to achieve that kind of remarkable success. We may pin on a badge, or present a plaque, or stage a photo op, but we never deploy federal money to make these authentic business leaders into long-term instructors in the art they have mastered. That is tragic.

“Do you want to talk about cooperation? In several American inner cities, local heroes have created urban farms. Residents of all ages learn to grow their own food. Their own fresh, clean food. What a magnificent achievement. With an infinitesimal fraction of the federal money we have wastefully dumped into the War on Poverty, we could have these pioneers start up a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand expansive urban farms across America. —Food grown by the people who will eat it. This project alone would revolutionize life in those places. Why aren’t we doing it? Why can’t government find these private citizens who are already tremendous problem solvers and empower them to solve more problem, instead of backing tired old race-baiting blowhards?

“I’ll tell you why. The government is a jealous master. It wants to define, control, and solve problems. It doesn’t really matter whether the problems are overcome, as long as government is in charge. That is a hideous fact of life, and we have to change it. Our wasteful, incompetent, and in some cases, criminal federal programs have to be sidetracked and stopped. They are runaway trains, and they must be led to terminals and parked.

“The protests against the police we are seeing now, even if they were successful in some respects, wouldn’t change any of the basic facts that ruin life in our inner cities. That may be hard to swallow, but it’s true.

“Do you know something? Some of the people protesting are doing it as if it’s a job, as if they’re bringing home a paycheck—when what they really need is an actual job, an actual economy in their neighborhood.

“Shall I detail for you how shameful and vicious loan practices have destroyed lives, how home mortgages have been rigged to make home buyers fail and lose their very place of shelter? Shall I detail how street-drug economies have taken over?

“Shall I describe how fervently most citizens in poverty-blighted cities actually want the police to wipe out gangs?

“I’ve discovered, late in the game, that basic truths, such as the ones I’ve just laid out, seem to make answers harder. Mountains to climb are suddenly higher. But it serves no purpose to pretend and deflect and lie and cover up and kill hope while appearing to encourage it. Vital facts need to be brought out into the light.



“What good, for instance, does it do to promise and inflate and fabricate, when it comes to employment numbers? We, the government, can’t directly create jobs, unless we want everyone to work for the State. But I’ve just indicated how we could help others to reverse the trend of horrendous unemployment. This should have been done decades ago.

“Black lives matter? All lives matter? Are we really going to spend time arguing about what to say and how to say it? I’m telling you, when it comes to life in inner cities, I’ve just described the raw barriers that prevent it from flourishing—and if anyone cares to win this struggle, attention must be paid.

“I’m aware, as you are, that the State has done much to grind down The Individual, no matter who he or she is.

“At the same time, the State has coddled and exonerated individuals who have committed terrible crimes, and calling those crimes by other names doesn’t make them go away, in case you haven’t noticed.

“Oh yes, and another thing. I hate to say this, but the creation and maintenance of a permanent government-dependent underclass, in our cities, is a purposeful act. It isn’t an accident, and it isn’t just a strategy for winning votes in election seasons. It’s a way of pulling the whole country down, sucking it into an ever-widening vortex of poverty, conflict, division, and useless guilt. It’s a political, economic, and psychological operation. There is no strong motive to help this underclass help itself. If there were, it might lead to a genuine renewal. But renewal isn’t in the cards. The men who are behind this underclass-operation intend to sink America. I should know. I’ve been working for them. Until now.

“Can we right the ship?

“—Did the networks just cut off my feed? I was just getting started. I was about to talk about the militarization and federalization of police forces, and the expanding Surveillance State. We have to curtail all that…Hello? Are we still on the air? Who’s running things here…I need to talk to the person in charge…Who’s in charge?”

    That was a good one, Mr. Rappoport.

  2. The police are gang members. Abolish the military, police and bankers or legalize drugs, nationalize banks and utilities which sounds like viable change towards justice, real economy with peace?

  3. Rick Manigault | July 16, 2016 at 7:50 am | Reply

    Great article.

  4. Come clean about his name and his transgender queen.
    and that the unFederal b.s zentral bank of the Usurped States has been feeding the power vampires since 12/21/1913 and implementing the unconstitutional and non ratified 16th and 17th with the thug agency of the extreme extortion of the IRS.
    These are the unholy ones who will (if left to their plan) enslave the remaining 500,000.
    TAXATION is THEFT.
    USURY is unchristian.

    The truth is simple. Thank you Jon for the truth. Return to the basic law of the constitution and the sovereignty of the states. From there the freedom of the people will arise and prosperity will again be ours.

  6. yea blame Lyndon B. Johnson… he set this all up… and it worked…

    Always be a light that is .shininginthedark.c

    Police in the US are urban terrorist. The origin of policing is rooted in the slave patrols

  8. We saw Comey and Lynch as employees of HSBC, a bank that was busted for laundering drug money and did the Clilnton’s taxes for several years and had other relationships with them. Obama put Lynch on the Federal Bench in New Your and put Comey in as FBI Director.

    What stinks here???

  9. Mr. Rappaport is on the right track but he is not diagnostic enough.

    He notes correctly that
    — above government, bankers profit greatly from poverty, violence,
    fear and drugs, and that
    — the government is not expanding on, for example, successful
    initiatives in urban farming.

    He notes incorrectly that the government wants to define and control,
    and that it doesn’t really matter whether the problems are overcome,
    as long as government is in charge.

    Mr. Rappaport has apparently not understood that it is very important
    that the problems are *not* overcome.

    The government of the bankers has a dual goal:
    1. make it seem that the government is trying to help, but
    2. do not do enough to solve the problems, because that would
    bring to an end the commerces that make money on the problems.

    This is a sweet spot for governments everywhere:
    — make the undiagnostic think the government is trying to help, but
    — don’t put an end to the commerces that thrive on the problems.

    This is a win-win situation: the undiagnostic have hope, the diagnostic
    make money.

    This is the real gift that keeps on giving.

    There are actions we can take to get out of this situation but that is
    a second step. The first step is to understand. Mr Rappaport should
    do more to help us understand.

  10. Take this message to the appalachian, trailer parks, poor rural areas, etc.
