In this third and final interview, Michael Folkerth’s book: “THE BIGGEST LIE EVER BELIEVED” exposes America’s greatest crisis—unending growth.
Trying to corner Clinton, Obama, Romney and McCain into addressing America’s immigration invasion proves harder than arm wrestling an octopus! Trying to get our apathetic American public to force definitive answers from this presidential quartet proves tougher than bringing an Egyptian mummy back to life.
Once the full impact of adding endless millions of people hits, the devastation to American society will make Hurricane Katrina look like a Sunday picnic. It’ll make Mount Saint Helens look like a puff of smoke from Humphrey Bogart’s cigarette. It’ll make Briteny Spears’ life resemble a “Father Knows Best” happy ending. What’s the big difference for our entire society? Immigration, both legal and illegal, will create carnage and consequences that affect every state forever.
In other words, before the Titanic hit the iceberg, all seemed well. Once it hit, everything changed for the worst.
Folkerth examines why our corporations demand unending immigration to force-feed growth. “Today we will once more work through the actual root cause of illegal immigration as it relates to the economy,” he said. “To avoid having to descend into the dismal science of conventional economics, we’ll apply my patented ‘Mikeronomics’ and take a shortcut to the truth.
“Consumer spending represents two-thirds of our domestic U.S. economy, and is responsible for some 62 percent of the jobs that have thus far, not gone off to China. The necessity of keeping such consumer spending whipped up to a brisk pace is well up in the red zone of the alert scale for those seeking reelection.
“And, since our economy is based on the impossible basis of ever increasing growth, the necessity of adding a few million new consumers to our buyers club from time to time becomes imperative. Here’s the rub. The current birthrate in the U.S. doesn’t get the consumption job done.
“No problem; we have the I.N.S., often thought to mean Immigration and Naturalization Service, but actually meaning “Instant Necessary Shoppers,” which allows 1.2 million foreign folks to join our club each and every year, legally.
“However, with all things ever expanding some years back we reached that unfortunate, but predicable, point where the birthrate and legal immigration combined didn’t trip the trigger.”
That’s when the brilliant, foghorn-leghorn rooster, alcoholic Senator Teddy Kennedy of Massachusetts dumped the 1965 Immigration Reform Act onto the American public. He raised immigration rates from a stable 175,000 annually to 1.1 to 1.5 million. That single bill drove consumption into high gear. Corporations busted unions and wages declined because millions of immigrants moved into the work place to undercut Americans. Soon, illegal aliens followed to work slave wages off the books. Result? Farmers and corporations raked-in unheard-of profits. Our economic engine roared with production, consumption, sales and pollution.
“We also reached the point where the good citizens of this country were reluctant that immigration continued at high numbers,” Folkerth said. “Therefore we had a conundrum. Congress doesn’t like conundrums. It forced them to either tell the American people that the false economy that they have come to love and enjoy was no longer an option, or let a few thousand illegal immigrants sneak in each night to reinvigorate the activity at the mall.
“Given the above choice and with election coming up, the decision for a person who is desperately seeking reelection becomes quite clear; never face south.
“We have noticed that nearly all politicians have denied the personal knowledge that 12 to 20 million illegals lived and worked our country. I remind you that these are the same politicians who are protecting you from terrorists sneaking into the country.
“If a federal or state politician says he or she didn’t know these folks were here, throw the bums out. If they did know it and didn’t tell us, throw the bums out.
“They all knew we had illegal immigration because it was encouraged. Allowing thousands of illegal people to invade the U.S. on a daily basis and remain here for years without any measure of enforcement against such activity, is encouragement; plain and simple.
“Imagine a consumption based society that is already teetering on the brink of recession due to a lack of consumer spending. Teetering may not be the correct word when our president and Congress are so desperate for Americans to spend money, that both agree to sending checks out to the good taxpayers (and non-taxpayers) to provide the money for that purpose.
“Continue to imagine that in the middle of this mess, 12 to 20 million of those consumers would leave overnight, due to being deported. Politicians imagine this event occurring all the time; it’s called a hideous nightmare.
“Now, given the above information, can you spell a m n e s t y? Your faithful representatives sure can. After all, if there is a fine, it’s not amnesty, it’s then spelled ‘collusion.’
“So what’s the answer? Should we just continue to increase population until the whole thing flies into a million pieces? Should we keep on expanding until our natural resources can no longer support us? Or should we work toward a sustainable economy that is not based on ever expanding population growth?
“Unfortunately, it is possible to add millions of people to these United States. However, have you ever seen pictures that exhibit the living conditions of the average people in China and India? A picture is worth a thousand words. That picture may well represent Middle America, just a few years down the road.”
To be certain, it’s not pretty.
