The American Gulf


Eleven charts that explain the economy in America.

A huge share of the nation's economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent.


The richest controls 2/3 of America's net worth


In 2007, the bottom 60% of Americans had 65% of their net worth tied up in their homes. The top 1%, in contrast, had just 10%. The housing crisis has no doubt further swelled the share of total net worth held by the super-rich.




Winners Take All



The super-rich have grabbed the bulk of the past three decades' gains.

Aevrage Household income before taxes.


A Harvard business professor and a behavioural economist surveyed 5,000 Americans on how they thought wealth is distributed in the US. Most thought that it’s more balanced than it actually is.

Productivity has surged, but income and wages have stagnated for most Americans. If the median household income had kept pace with the economy since 1970, it would now be nearly $92,000, not $50,000.

"9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out" and Hillsborough



On September 11 2001 2,744 lives were lost. The world changed that day. As a result over a million lives have been taken in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over 6000 soldiers have lost their lives. Collectively these wars have cost over 6 trillion dollars. Civil liberties particularly in the US have been removed so much so that their constitution hardly applies any more.

 9/11 is the mother of all lies. It should never be allowed to go away. It should continually be challenged. Yes it's easier to turn our backs and shrug our shoulders and wish it away, but if you are thinking,' here we go again' or positioning your discomfort away from this article consider this. Last month we saw the resemblance of justice for the 96 lives lost at Hillsborough in 1989.

In the UK we saw how the determination and tenacity of the people of Liverpool could uncover a dirty big establishment lie. The Hillsborough Independent panel's report found 164 police statements were altered, 116 of them to remove or alter "unfavourable" comments about the policing of the match and the unfolding disaster. It took 23 years to come about.

We saw Liverpool's passion to 'clear their name' and to bring justice to the names of those who died and those who lied. The Hillsborough story isn't over yet either. Prosecutions will continually be pursued and those involved in the deception have that hanging over their heads whether legal proceedings come to fruition or not on a daily basis.

 Now lets get the magnifying glass out and recognise 9/11 for what it is. The mother of all lies. There was never a proper investigation into 9/11, just a massive cover up on an unprecedented scale. There is so much mystery and deception surrounding the entire saga that it would be counter-productive to this article to catalogue them all. I for one, wouldn't be able to make sense of where to begin.


WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:
Rapid onset of collapse
Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a second before the building's destruction
Symmetrical "structural failure" – through the path of greatest resistance – at free-fall acceleration
Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint
Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional
Foreknowledge of "collapse" by media, NYPD, FDNY
In the aftermath of WTC7's destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered:
FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples
Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses
Chemical signature of the incendiary thermite found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples
WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
Slow onset with large visible deformations
Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)
Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed


Before, during and after 9/11 unusual events took place that would convince even the deepest sceptic armed with the knowledge, that there was an incredible amount of organisation involved, false information was produced and used to enforce military and political actions and evidence that could uncover the truth of what happened was hidden, removed and doctored from numerous sources to deceive the world.

 Following 9/11 tens of thousands of government control policies have been created in ALL western countries; similarly questionable attacks have taken place (7/7 in the UK and the aftermath, has many unanswered mysteries); a common enemy has been created for us all to share in; numerous wars have been fought against Middle East countries to realigned their monetary policies in line with the America dollar and the situation is expected to become much, much worse over the coming years, through civil unrest, martial law (of which much military training has taken place) and major war. Let's hope not.



As seen in this revealing photo, the Twin Towers' destruction exhibited all of the characteristics of destruction by explosives:
Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at nearly free-fall acceleration
Improbable symmetry of debris distribution
Extremely rapid onset of destruction
Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes
Multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally
Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking
Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
1200-foot-diameter debris field: no "pancaked" floors found
Isolated explosive ejections 20–40 stories below demolition front
Total building destruction: dismemberment of steel frame
Several tons of molten metal found under all 3 high-rises
Evidence of thermite incendiaries found by FEMA in steel samples
Evidence of explosives found in dust samples
And exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
Slow onset with large visible deformations
Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, intact, from the point of plane impact, to the side most damaged by the fires)
Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer-lasting fires have never collapsed


The movie below is endorsed by 1720 architects and engineers and the public and media appear to be warming to the expert attention. 9/11 is not just an American concern. It effects all us. Our beliefs, our liberty, our economies, our whole way of life is threatened. The Hillsborough injustice took 23 years before a real conclusion was gained. This lie has been going on for 11 years. The American government not only let down the people at the time, they continue to do so. They are culpable of what took place. Like Hillsborough, 9/11 is not going to go away and those involved need to know this on a daily basis
