The humanitarian hoax of raising the minimum wage
By Linda Goudsmit

The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened the United States economy for eight years presenting his crippling policies as altruistic when in fact they were designed for destruction. His legacy, the Leftist Democratic Party with its "resistance" movement, is the party of the Humanitarian Hoax attempting to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism.

Raising the minimum wage has been an anthem for the leftist Democratic Party. They rail against the "heartless" Republicans accusing them of elitism and not having loving kindness for regular Americans. The Leftist insist the 99% are being victimized by the ruthless 1%. So let's examine the objective reality and the subjective reality of the leftist fiction being propagated by these humanitarian hucksters.

According to Forbes, raising the minimum wage is a job killer not a job creator:

The 2015 bill introduced by humanitarian huckster Bernie Sanders provided a mandatory increase to $15/hour for firms with over 500 employees and a $13/hour mandatory minimum wage for firms under 500 employees beginning January 2017. Raising the minimum wage to $13 or $!5 is a great sound bite repeated incessantly by the colluding mainstream media for the hucksters. In objective reality raising the minimum wage to the $13 or $15 threshold results in devastating consequences for the poorest working Americans. Full-time workers are reduced to part-time and their benefits are reduced accordingly.

The humanitarian hucksters are not stupid – they are deceitful. They knew the outcome of the bill. The economists who advise them know that businesses unable to sustain a mandatory wage increase will reduce hours and begin automating their businesses to survive. Economists publicly predicted the increase in automated services in the labor market as labor costs rise, technology advances, and people become accustomed to interacting with machines. Fast-food restaurants are already replacing cashiers with kiosks, toll booths are replacing toll workers with scanners, and factories are increasingly replacing workers with sophisticated robotics.

So why would the leftist humanitarian hucksters deliberately demand such a destructive minimum wage hike?

The answer is that the goal of the leftist Democratic Party is to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism. The leftists already know that unsustainable wage increases incentivize automation and result in unemployment which swells the welfare roles. The swollen welfare rolls are unsustainable and will eventually overwhelm the welfare system and devastate the economy – precisely the goal of the humanitarian hucksters.

This particularly sinister plan to overload the welfare system was brought to us courtesy of Obama's mentor radical socialist Saul Alinsky who hoped to change American democracy into socialism in the 1970s. Two of Alinsky's Columbia University proteges Richard Cloward and Frances Piven devised the plan to deliberately overload the US welfare system to precipitate the predictable crisis that would lead to "a replacement of the welfare system with a national guaranteed annual income and thus end poverty."

The problem is that we already know how a mandatory increase in the minimum wage increases poverty. A mandatory annual income is guaranteed to collapse the economy and destroy American democracy. As Margaret Thatcher so succinctly remarked, "Socialism cannot work – eventually you run out of other peoples' money." Demanding the unsustainable raise in the minimum wage is a humanitarian hoax designed to kill America with "kindness."

Socialism may have been the end game for the radical left-wing liberal lemmings determined to replace American democracy with socialism – but it was never the end game for the globalist elite who actually have the power of the purse and intend to rule the world with their own new world order of one-world government.

The Leftist Democratic Party and their leaders are just useful idiots being used by the mega-mogul globalist elite (monarchs, aristocrats, royalty, world bankers, and dominant industrialists) to create an unrestricted world market for their goods and transform America into socialism. The Leftists are too arrogant to understand that they are participating in their own destruction. They have been indoctrinated to believe that they are fighting for "social justice and income equality" when in fact they were duped into helping to establish the dystopian nightmare of one-world government where there is no middle class, no upward mobility, no national sovereignty, and no individual freedoms. There is only the ruling globalist elite and the enslaved population who serve them.

Socialism with its complete government control is the prerequisite social structure for the globalist elite to internationalize the socialist countries, internationalize the police force, and impose enforced one-world government. One-world government is the old idea of the new world order that the globalist elite intend to rule themselves. It is unapologetically described in chilling detail in Lord Bertrand Russell's 1952 book "The Impact of Science on Society." One-world government is a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves. There is no social justice in one-world government, there is no income equality in one-world government, there are no Leftists or political agitators of any kind in one-world government – only a docile, compliant population of slaves ruled by the globalist elite.

One-world government is the ultimate goal and the underlying motive of the campaign to destroy America from within. American democracy is the single greatest existential threat to one-world government and President Donald Trump is America's leader. If the globalist elite are successful in their efforts to weaken the US military, create social chaos through open borders and illegal immigration, collapse the economy through an unsustainable minimum wage, overthrow the US government of President Donald Trump, and transform America into socialism the next step is globalist conquest and the imposition of one-world government.

After 241 years of American freedom the world will be returned to the dystopian existence of masters and slaves because a willfully blind American public was seduced by leftist humanitarian hucksters to surrender their sovereign borders and freedoms for promises of social justice and income equality. By demanding "altruistic" unsustainable economic benefits without commensurate work the Humanitarian Hoax will have succeeded in killing America with "kindness."
