Author Gary North writes, “The public is blissfully unaware of the nature of this war. It is likely that most people will remain unaware of it in our lifetimes. But an increasing minority of people are becoming at least vaguely aware of what is going on. Nobody has all the answers – no - body on earth, anyway – but millions of people have heard at least part of the story."
Total US Government Debt in 2018:
At the end of FY 2018 the total government debt in the United States, including federal, state, and local, is expected to be $24.58 trillion.
Student Loan Debt Statistics:
It’s important to understand how much student loan debt there currently is in the United States. Student loan debt is the second highest type of personal debt.
When looking at the more than $1.4 trillion in outstanding student loan debt, some experts worry that it could be the next financial bubble. After all, subprime mortgage lending was at $1.3 trillion in 2007, just before the market crashed, according to a study published by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Student loan debt has surpassed those numbers — and continues to rise.
Where student loan debt stands today
Because young people are pushed to go to college and encouraged to get loans to make it happen, they are deeply in debt. The availability of these loans makes it relatively easy for students to pay for college.
According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the biggest increase in non-housing debt in 2017 was due to student loans.
Though all types of debt have been on the rise, student loan debt saw the biggest jump. It’s beginning to eat up a bigger chunk of household finances; not even credit card debt is increasing at the same rate.
Unfortunately, graduates aren’t making enough money to handle the burden. A whopping 11 percent of student debt was delinquent or in default in early 2017.
Auto Loans: The Next Debt Bubble?

After nearly a decade of being able to borrow money for next to nothing, interest rates are finally beginning to creep higher. Even the relatively small increases seen so far have caused problems in the previously booming automobile industry. The size of the auto loan market has ballooned to a historic $1.1 trillion, and subprime lending has once again become the norm.
Credit Card Debt:
Americans’ total credit card debt continued to climb in 2017, reaching an estimated $905 billion — a nearly 8% increase from the previous year — according to a NerdWallet analysis. 
And the average household that’s carrying credit card debt has a balance of $15,654. Households with any kind of debt owe $131,431 (including mortgages), on average, the data analysis found.
NerdWallet’s 2017 household debt study shows that several major spending categories have outpaced income growth over the past decade; many Americans are putting medical expenses on credit cards; and the average indebted household is paying hundreds of dollars in credit card interest each year.
The Media Propaganda Machine:
National Bestseller author, Christopher Lasch writes in ‘A Culture of Narcissism,’ “Propaganda seeks to create in the public a chronic sense of crisis… The degeneration of politics into a spectacle has not only transformed policy making into publicity, debased political discourse, and turned elections into sporting events in which each side claims the advantage.” Is it ‘Russian Collusion?’ Is it the ‘Deep State?’ Why let the media determine your agenda when you can clearly see who is being deceived. Read this insightful article by New York Times best selling author and leadership expert Orrin Woodward, https://orrinwoodwardblog.com/2015/06/01/the-financial-matrix-controls-people-companies-and-nations/
Orrin describes this further in his ‘Guinness’ record breaking book, ‘And Justice For All’, “Basically, the exploiters seek to control the media to deflect the people’s attention from the injustices they are suffering. Instead, by directing their attention to sports and entertainment, stocks and bonds, or contrived political disputes, exploiters keep the people distracted by a drumroll of disinformation and misinformation. The key is to provide them with anything they want except truth. In effect, the people are lulled to sleep by media either supported or owned by the exploiters themselves.”
You might consider taking matters in your own hands. It’s a most insurmountable task thinking any of us could take on the Financial Elites and their institutions as they engulf the world. However, maybe the answer is staring us in the face. Similar to the movie, ‘The (Financial) Matrix,’ maybe all’s we need to do is unplug and take the following steps:
Who's in CONTROL OF the most important investment? It's YOUR BRAIN.
1. Eliminate the three ‘N’s: Noise, Negative, and News, and make a conscious decision to…
2. Replace with ‘RLA:’
- Read information that improves self – worth and personal development.
- Listen to positive audios from a peer group that teaches how to apply information that will improve personal and financial development.
- Associate regularly with a group who is succeeding with a ‘Financial Literacy’ program that teaches how to unplug from the bondage of debt.
3. Act! Take advantage of an entrepreneurial idea that incentivizes the spread of information for the millions of people who are ready to free themselves from the financial manipulation and that quietly taken hold of its people.
Conspiracy theory? You decide. God Bless, George Guzzardo
