Did you hear that the poverty level fell below where it was prior to the economic collapse twelve years ago? Probably not, because legacy media doesn’t want you to hear about that. They don’t want you to realize the economy is in better shape than it’s been in decades. They don’t want you to look at your paycheck and bank account and realize you’re doing better now than you’ve done in a long time, perhaps ever.
They don’t want you to know this because if you realize you’re doing better, you’re more likely to acknowledge much of this is due to President Trump’s first term in the White House. If you reach the conclusion that your personal prosperity and the prosperity of those around you is better than it was before, you will be more inclined to vote for President Trump and other Republicans in the 2020 election. The media and their cronies in the Democratic Party can’t have that, so they bury stories like these.
But even when they report it, they do so in a way that is so biased, so hilariously tilted, one might read a story about how poverty is now low and come out of it thinking the economy is tanking as we speak. That’s how radically unhinged the reports have been, taking reality and attempting to morph it into their own version that paints a much grimmer picture.
This article from NPR starts off basically saying things are bad even though they’re good. It’s pure doublethink as part of their (attempted) Orwellian control over the collective consciousness of this nation.
The U.S. poverty rate declined slightly last year, but finally fell below the 2007 level, right before the Great Recession pushed millions of Americans out of work and into financial distress.
The improving economy was a key factor in the decline. The U.S. Census Bureau noted in its annual report on income and poverty that there were 2.3 million more full-time, year-round workers last year and that median earnings for all such workers rose by more than three percent.
Amid these positive signs, the bureau reported separately that the number of people in the U.S. who did not have health insurance rose from 25.6 million people in 2017 to 27.5 million in 2018. That included 4.3 million children. Health advocacy groups called the increase extremely troubling and blamed declines in Medicaid coverage, especially for Hispanic children and children under the age of six.
Even when reporting great news for Americans, mainstream media does everything in its power to convince people it’s all just awful. “You’re not really prospering,” they’ll tell you. They torture the numbers until they say what they want them to say.
