This is a political action request.

As decent people living in a country slowly degenerating into a police state run by order-followers, here’s an issue requiring response by decent, responsible people in support of Azure Farms, where Sherman County, Oregon officials are threatening on May 22nd, to blanket spray a 2,000-acre, 18-year old organic farm with Roundup – then FORCE Azure Farms to pay for it. This ignorant Gestapo-like action will destroy Azure’s Organic Certification. Sherman County contact information is provided in Jon Rappoport’s post below. (See link.) Please take a few minutes and politely notify these Sherman County morons of your displeasure – if you’re displeased, which I hope you are. Thank you. We are what we eat – and we shouldn’t be eating Roundup.

Thank you so much.

Our global economy, including the United States is teetering on the brink of economic collapse.  The world came within a few malfeasant hours of all banking being shut down in 2008.  As a species, we have self-destructively and ignorantly allowed the world’s central banks free reign to corruptly enrich their Elite Owners, transnational monopolies and Pawns of Privilege by drowning sovereign governments and their gullible citizens in overwhelming debt.  The entire world is now insolvent and in terms of cash, illiquid.  If every bank customer demanded their bank deposits in cash today, it would take more than twenty-years to physically print the currency meeting that demand.

The average American family, that is nearly 50% of us living on Main Street, cannot lay our hands on $500 to cover an unexpected bump in the road.  We don’t have it.  According to Federal Student Aid, the Department of Education’s student loan management arm, nearly $1 trillion in student loans are outstanding, a growing percentage of which cannot and will not be paid back.  These loans constitute a significant portion of current government assets.  Social Security and Medicare are nearly bankrupt.  The US Debt Clock[1] as of today, shows $106 trillion in (GAAP) calculated, unfunded liabilities; about $900,000 per U.S. taxpayer promised to be paid over the next 75-years by other tax payers.  10,000 people per day are turning 65; good luck with that.

Our White House, 100 Member U.S. Senate and 435 Member House of Representatives along with thousands of D.C. bureaucrat ORDER-FOLLOWERS understand that when the morning of systemic economic collapse arrives and 47% of Americans reliant on Federal checks do not receive their checks; and when ATM’s are turned off; gas stations are closed; grocery store shelves stand empty; and pay checks cannot be cashed – bad things will surely happen.

A likely scenario is thousands, maybe millions of American workers, retirees and pissed off young people grabbing their pitchforks to march on Washington D.C. with buckets of tar and bags of feathers for meting out justice to the Psychopathic, Authoritarian Criminals who arrogantly orchestrated this calamity.  The Elite and their order-taking pawns know this and don’t care much for pitchforks.  Therefore, they need a fix… and they need it soon.

Imagine 2007 through 2010 to be the leading edge of an economic hurricane.  Imagine 2010 through 2016 to be the Eye of the Storm where things suck financially, but are quieter and a little better than the passing storm was.  Now imagine the coming financial nightmare as the vicious trailing edge of this monstrous financial hurricane approaches homes on Main Street.  This titanic economic storm surge of war debt will engulf all of us.

Dynastic families of the world and their central bank order-followers have been busy during the Obama years.  Obama’s 8-year appointed puppet task was apparently to distract and divide America and the world with stupid emotional strife, hatred and war; while the Puppet Masters plotted how they could and would place blame for their greed and stupidity on something… anything or anybody other than themselves – and they planned what their fix would be and how they would sell it to uninformed American citizens on Main Street and the rest of the world.  Remember those pitchforks?  Elites don’t like them and will work to avoid those prickly tines.  Yale Bonesmen and others of their ilk don’t like big baseball bats either.

I don’t pretend to have a crystal ball or be smart enough to know what’s coming in the next couple of years, but tea leaves and little hints have been sprinkled around Main Street ever since water boy, George W. Bush crushed free markets to save free markets in 2008 – as though anyone alive today has ever seen a free market?  Anyway, here’s what I think is coming in terms of Authoritative Pitchfork Avoidance Strategy (APAS).

I suspect BITCOIN is a digital currency trial balloon.  That doesn’t mean it isn’t real, obviously it’s real, but clearly it’s a trial balloon testing Main Street acceptance of it; conditioning and preparing Main Street for what’s coming; and finally working the logistical bugs out of a workable worldwide system.  In other words, if fiat currency has failed again as it always does; lets fix it by going to completely made up electronic funny money.  You can’t make this lunacy up…unless you’re a psychopathic banker working for inbred Elites.  This is great for Wall Street; not so great for Main Street.

The new electronic money; Mr. Doug Casey of Casey Research[2] calls it FEDCOIN; I call it NEOCOIN; will be a liability of Central Banks, in the U.S., the Federal Reserve Banks. FEDCOIN will not be carried as a liability of commercial banks; the Fed will carry it.  This  hands on a digital tray, the Owners of the Federal Reserve Banks – and all the world’s central banks – absolute, 100% control over every human on planet earth and beyond.  That’s 100% ENSLAVEMENT OF HUMANITY.  Corrupt, legislated law, as evil and discriminatory an affront to human freedom as it is, will become a pleasant memory replaced by the Authoritative Evil Handcuffs about to be locked onto humanity’s wrists and ankles.

Digital, computerized currency based on block-chain technology spent and received via smart phone today and a chip in our ass tomorrow, can be programmed on or off for anything, any whim the keyboard button pusher or touch screen operator (read order-follower) pleases.  One text from his or her boss and we can’t buy sugar, ammo, gasoline, groceries, a plane ticket or anything we’ve been deemed unfit to have or do.  TOTAL CONTROL – NO LEGISLATION OR LAW NECESSARY.  FULL ON ADMINISTRATIVE DICTATORSHIP.  Who’re we gonna’ call?  Ghost-busters won’t be there because Government doesn’t like them.

EVIL is the opposite of FREEDOM.  Evil requires AUTHORITY to operate; even the pathetic authority of a petty thief taking our stuff.  The true purpose of evil is OBEDIENCE, not violence.  Authority established via cultural conditioning coupled with laws enforced by VIOLENCE, coerce us to OBEY.  Mr. Jeremy Locke in The End of All Evil[3] describes TYRANNY as always disguised by culture and law.  Mr. Locke reminds us, Tyranny OFFERS SECURITY and PROTECTION, but DEMANDS OBEDIENCE.  Electronic money is obedience with demand for obedience built in…no escape possible.

Main Street will soon be offered FEDCOIN or something like it as easy and convenient, not to mention offering a practical means of protection against theft, fraud, etc.  We’ll no longer have a wallet to lose or be stolen.  We’ll be told how electronic transparency created by greedy WORLD BANKSTERS will protect us against recurrence of the horrible economic tragedy these same pathological World Banksters just caused and we are starting to live through.  Sweet huh… but, will we buy it?

FEDCOIN acceptance offered under the guise of security and protection for Main Street; will by its block-chain nature mandate obedience to technocratic government authority sans any ability to complain or anyone to complain to.  Not immediately of course.  We’ll be told it’s just an alternate currency providing international trade stability and reduced currency exchange, transaction costs alongside our regular $5, $10 and $20 paper debt instruments, just like always; so don’t worry, your government’s here to help. This will stabilize the economy.   Main Street won’t be bothered a bit and will find life easier and more convenient.  Grab a Bud and splain to your neighbors how great this is.

Then, with no announcement at all, slowly, quietly, over a couple of years the $5’s, $10’s and $20’s will start disappearing, becoming harder and harder to get.  We’ll already have voluntarily climbed the stairs to our Bankster’s financial hangman’s platform.  The FEDCOIN noose will have been slipped around our economic necks and is slowly tightening.  Finally, without fanfare, we’ll wake up one morning to find that Bankster noose fully tightened, knot pressing against our throats.  We’ll watch helplessly as the hangman pulls his lever, the trapdoor drops and human freedom dies a sudden, though predictable death; punctuated by the snap of our economic necks and a little kicking of our bound ankles.

Historic memories of parochial paper freedoms like the first, second, fourth and tenth amendments will be a thing of the inconvenient past.  One button push or screen touch at Command Control Central and Johnny can’t buy no gun.  Suzy can’t publish her blog.  Mary and Sam can’t start their own business.  Bob can’t buy no gas.  Harvey can’t start his truck.  Lucy can’t go to college.  100% control and no way for Main Street to fix it or change it.

I suspect many of us won’t be inclined to buy this crap.  Is it too far-fetched then, to imagine the pain of coming economic collapse and ensuing spiritual devastation might render us desperate enough, to accept the idea that none of us must work productively any longer.  Just do whatever simple job your Gov’ment Authority asks and you’re done for the day.  Go home and take your happy pill.  We’ll each receive our electronic stipend of $600, or $1,000 or $10,000 per month or whatever from the Central Banksters digital magic machine just for being good little citizens working for the common good.  Bankster Chaos replaced by Bankster Order.

This will replace Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and productive jobs, which are bankrupt or gone anyway with a means of economic survival.  Real jobs will be going on, underpaid in the developing Third World.  The West will no longer deal with such inanities.  How nice is that?  No pitchforks necessary; not even one.  The catch will be – to collect this free stipend, this compassionate gift from the Puppet Masters – we take the chip.

Only by accepting our micro-chip can we access this new digital currency; NEOCOIN.  This will be the new face of slavery, of Neo-Feudalism in America and the world.  Hang on because if we don’t wake up and start screaming NO at the top of our lungs from every rooftop and street corner we can find – this is likely our future.  Neo-Serfdom back again as the common good in a new, more repugnant form called Trans-humanism, sold with the promise of peace and security – in exchange for absolute obedience.  No more outlaws.

I’ll tell you what.  From where I sit in the Arizona desert; give me my dusty silver $1 or my scratched $100 gold piece; I’ll put it in my jeans’ pocket and be perfectly free to walk toward anything I want; or to walk away from anything I don’t want.  If we haven’t figured out yet, what a stupid idea electronic voting is; well, I’m afraid we’re about to receive our gov’ment’s help, learning just how incredibly stupid and dangerous electronic money is – the hard way.

If you’re happy with our 2017 world, there isn’t any reason to read further.  The rest of us on either or all sides of the American political spectrum have been disappointed or angry with lack of Main Street D.C. representation for a long time; decades.  Many of us are convinced that anger focused on Bush, Obama, Clinton, Trump and Congress will eventually bring about change for the better… but it hasn’t and history suggests, won’t.  If we’re not insane, we must ask why it doesn’t change no matter the rhetoric, Party or votes?  What must we do differently if we want real change?

The answer requires beginning at the beginning and the truth is, and take this to a small bank because big banks bite, we don’t know what we don’t know.  You’ve heard this before, so it isn’t new, but it’s important.  Theoretically, existence in some form; physical, spiritual or otherwise has been around a long time; some speak in terms of infinity.  I like that idea, but wasn’t sufficiently gifted to comprehend what infinity is.  I just think of it as a lot… a whole bunch.

Digressing down the rabbit hole further, let’s talk a bit about truth versus perception. Consider Time for example.  Is time real?  Does time exist or is it a Homo sapiens’ (hysterically from the Latin meaning wise man) parable; a finite organizational construct relativizing various activities and happenings, like paying the electric bill on time or scheduling a meeting?  If time exists and is infinite; if it goes back through the past infinitely; goes forward through or to the future infinitely; then what is the present? What’s now?   Is the present moment a separate time or is it part of the infinite past or infinite future?  Is the present just a singularity?  How can past or future both be infinite and not by definition include each other?

Maybe time is dimensionly circular rendering past, future, present, beginning and end indefinably irrelevant? What is or was the beginning?  If the past is infinite, then rationally there was never a beginning because the past always was.  The reverse holds true for the future and the end of time as an infinite future surely has no end.

I’m a civil engineer by training, not a philosopher.  Philosophers by nature are more esoterically evolved than problem solving engineers tend to be, so admittedly I’m under-qualified to discuss metaphysical notions, but as an obsessive-compulsive I insist on at least getting my questions on the table.

Back to time.  It appears to me; infinite time is a silly idea.  Infinite time suggests no beginning and no end, which is to say that somehow, something came from nothing.  More likely, the present is not a singularity, but is in fact all there is.  Infinite Now so to speak.  In terms of what we call time, the present is all there was, is and will be, which may explain how Lorentz Transformations[1] can exist and how Einstein’s Theory of Relativity can apply.  If time isn’t real, then it doesn’t shorten or lengthen as velocity varies per Lorentz’s elegant equations or Einstein’s theory.  It’s our perception of time that changes – relative to our spiritual or physical consciousness and relative circumstance.  Like pleasure or pain.  Feels good – time’s short.  Hurts like hell – time’s forever.  A matter of perception, not reality

My long-winded point here is that human perception is not reality, even when our perception is correct.  I don’t pretend to grasp the exact science of this, but my observation regarding perception and reality does hold.  Perception is nothing more than our human understanding or mis-understanding of reality via our seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching sensory filters; further complicated by social conditioning, now social engineering and our cognizance of, reaction to and expression of that perception through thought, emotion, speech or action.

What we do becomes reality.  What actually happened is reality.  Reality is truth and nothing but the truth.  What has actually occurred is truth.  What is occurring has not yet become truth.  It’s that simple.  Mr. Mark Passio[2] explains Natural Law and how this works very succinctly, while studiously avoiding and cautioning against New Age nonsense.  I highly recommend checking out his What on Earth Is Happening website or YouTube Channel.[3]  It’s worth your time and time is our knowledge currency.  It must be spent.

Now, if you’re still with me wondering how this time and perception gibberish relates to politics – we’re there.  If we can accept our perceptions may be inaccurate, biased, prejudiced and so forth regarding reality, regarding truth; then it follows our perceptions can be manipulated, by ourselves or by others – if the manipulator knows how to do it.  In other words, if the manipulator possesses more esoteric (hidden) knowledge about reality and its workings than we do; the manipulator has an advantage… and we can then be manipulated.

Welcome to education, religion, politics, and media, where the ORDER-FOLLOWERS make sure the truth is rarely the truth, what seems to be rarely is; and where aggrandizing agendas tend to trump (pun intended) everything of value on Main Street.  My Trump humor isn’t singling out President Trump.  I cynically lump all politicians acting on national and international stages together in one lying, Elite serving group.  Yea, I’m prejudiced.

Anyway, politicians are not the problem.  Order-followers like politicians, media, Pawns of Privilege and inbred Elites all display and act out symptoms of the underlying problem., which is spiritual in nature. We participate in our own demise and impoverishment by accepting media conditioning drivel, ignorantly electing political fools and supporting their stupid policies; all while denying our own citizen culpability in the evil attack on freedom they perpetrate around the world using wealth, diplomatic influence and military power we ourselves bestowed on them… and by evil, I mean restriction of freedom as Jeremy Locke explains in his difficult to obtain book, The End of All Evil.[4]  It doesn’t matter that Elite pawns – ORDER FOLLOWERS – cleverly and cooperatively tricked us.  We made the mistake.  We’re still making it.  Maybe we should learn about and arm ourselves with knowledge and learn to say NO?

If we want world reality to change; to be a better place; a place of loving abundance instead of an impoverishing transhumanist wasteland, we must change that reality ourselves.  This process starts with ourselves, from within ourselves.  There is no other path to success.  This requires doing the hard work necessary to accumulate knowledge and understanding; which enables our ability to act with wisdom to overcome and/or resist conditioning and/entrainment, that is, mind control exerted by sycophantic goons, order followers serving the Elite interest in enslaving humanity.

Our historic human dilemna is the few controlling the many in violation of Natural Law, Spiritual Law.  This is appropriately and correctly described as slavery; and acceptance of our own enslavement is the condition that must be changed from within ourselves by eliminating our susceptibility to conditioning and behavior altering mind control.  We must wake up.  Freedom depends on it.  There can be no freedom without personal responsibility.

The underlying societal problem we on Main Street live with; the boot heel on our throat, is lack of knowledge because we’re lied to or because we won’t expend the effort learning things our survival as a species requires we learn.  Since dynastic family members historically holding organizational control of our governments, international banking system, schools (conditioning centers), publishing, media, transnational corporate monopolies and most notably, the entire military industrial complex know more than we do about how the world and human nature works; they easily and conveniently manipulate our politicians, government and us to their own enslaving ends by co-opting wealth created by Main Street citizens and using that wealth against the same people they took it from.  This is done by maintaining human nescience and by fostering ignorance through propaganda, drugs and mis-education.

Our human situation is the direct result of not learning about and understanding Natural Law, the relationships between our Creator, human spirit, our physical body and how we exist and interact within the physical and spiritual world around us.  The Oligarchs and their order-followers, say at Tavistock for instance, do have this esoteric (hidden) knowledge, this occult knowledge and use it daily to modify Main Street behavior and dis-empowering beliefs.  We are literally being mind-controlled into accepting slavery by our own preference and vote.  Most of us have no idea this is happening and hence, cannot know better, resist or overcome this obscene influence taking control of our thoughts and lives.

Ultimately, we are living a spiritual war between good and evil in a Post-Apocalyptic world.  A war visible in music, poetry, literature, political expression and certainly in divide and conquer societal conflict.  Until we arm ourselves spiritually with true knowledge of the world we live in and begin to comprehend the immutable operation of Natural Law, we cannot overcome evil, that is be truly free, nor have any hope of changing our world’s reality.

The Elite and their ORDER-FOLLOWING MINIONS employ vast resources toward mastering their control over us as the useless eaters, the excess population they believe us to be.  These Elite deny the value inherent in life, whole-heartedly believing in and engaging in slavery.  They believe you and I are the slaves; and they the slave-masters employing ORDER-FOLLOWERS to run their plantation(s).

Technocracy is employed as their new control mechanism – an invisible mind prison without fences, walls, whips or chains.  Today’s feudal goal is implanted micro-chips in every human, total global surveillance and digital currency used as powerful weapons far exceeding any need for guns, cattle cars or barbed wire.  Our minds become our prison via effectively applied entrainment… and we not only don’t know it, but vote for it in every election.  No politician can or will change this steady progression toward our Neo-Feudal future.  Only we can do that and we can only accomplish this by changing our own thinking.  To change our thinking requires knowledge we currently do not possess, but must obtain.

The world’s Elite insist on control of all resources, wealth and people on earth; now slowly expanding beyond earth, using our Main Street wealth and docility to include interplanetary control.  Knowledge is the power we seek.  Knowledge breaks the chains binding us to impoverishment and debasement.  Knowledge is the fulcrum, the tool we must possess to overcome the dystopian One World Program of enslavement we steadily march toward at the behest of those we mistakenly call leaders, teachers and philanthropists.  Understanding is the lever.  Action through wisdom is our only weapon.  Knowledge will inform us of the need to say NO; we won’t go along with this anymore.

Choose to learn or don’t.  Failure to learn is certain enslavement for our children’s future.  Are we so weak and afraid we will accept this condition, allow this?  Or will we read, watch, listen and learn?  Will we put forth that effort?  Commit the necessary time?  Wishing, hoping and dreaming are powerless to effect reality or any change in our reality.  Effective learning coupled with knowledgeable action and courage changes the world.  It is the only way.  The One Word Answer to One World Totalitarian domination is NO.

Guns, ammo, courage and blood may still be required.  I’m not smart enough to know how this spiritual battle plays out, but guns and blood without knowledge is a war we will surely lose.  Knowledge is the key.  Sun Tzu[5] taught us this more than 2,500 years ago.  We should pay attention, learn and in doing so create at least some probability we can leave this physical plane of earth better than we found it.

I couldn’t bring myself to cast my own uninformed vote in the 2016 election (1st time in my adult life) as I was disgusted by protected psychopath, Hillary and knew little about The Donald other than having read three or four of his books.  I now suspect it no longer matters whether we like or dislike Donald Trump as President of our United States.  He won election in spite of impossible odds arranged by Left and Right Establishment insiders, a sycophant Elite/CIA controlled media and the Clinton War Machine.  He now assumes responsibility for our United States executive office, supposedly on the people’s behalf, including our monstrously bloated, unimaginably corrupt, $4 trillion Federal on-book budget…and we don’t know how large an off-book budget.

President Trump is not responsible for the vast array of unresolved issues and corruption facing the United States in 2017;  issues developed since WW II;  issues largely ignored, pandered to, propagandized and profited by a few for the last 70 or so years.  The question I find myself asking now is, “WHAT HAPPENS TO US ON MAIN STREET IF DONALD TRUMP FAILS TO MANAGE A SMOOTH ECONOMIC TRANSITION FROM OUR NEARLY INSOLVENT, NON-PRODUCTIVE ECONOMY TO A HEALTHY, PRODUCTIVE ONE”?  Is it still even possible to rebuild responsible adult government – or have we passed the negligently treasonous, economic point of no return?  Maybe we should at least ponder possible answers to this question before jumping on that Trump hating train; the one that looks headed on a downhill track to economic hell?

We’re told by main stream media (MSM) that the U.S. economy is on the right track, but here in Arizona anyway, there sure are a lot of vacant homes, offices, buildings and folks standing on corners with signs; so I did some checking and found U.S. Census Bureau and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data showing a different picture than the Press Corpse postulates.  Here’s a couple of stats to consider regarding that right track.

***Median Household Income for 2015 (last year available per U.S. Census) was $56,516 compared to 2007’s median $57,423; 1.6% lower than 2007.  Not impressive given steady, understated inflation at our grocery stores and shopping centers.
***The 2016 labor participation rate per Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) was 63%.  This means 37% of working age  Americans are not working.
***The 2016 U-6 unemployment rate for 2016 per BLS is 9.6%.  If we add the 14% (per BLS) still looking for work after 15 to 26 weeks, we get an unemployment rate of 23.6%.  For millennials, Hispanics, African-Americans and women, it’s nearly double that.  The official U-3 rate of 4.9% is D.C.B.S.
***U.S. home ownership is at the lowest level since 1967.  A few more percentage points and U.S. home ownership sinks to an all-time low since U.S. Census record keeping began in 1965.
***United States GDP for 2016 was a meager 1.6%.  If we subtract out the portion of government spending included, GDP is somewhere in the range of -5%.  (This is my rough estimate – I didn’t spend a lot of time on the math, but the ball park is definitely negative.)

In light of the above, consider the 2016 Office of Inspector General of the United States Department of Defense Report exposing $6.5 trillion dollars unaccounted for in 2015; an interesting statistic given the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) total 2015 Federal expenditures were $3.7 trillion against $3.2 trillion in revenues.  I don’t know if this $6.5 trillion is in addition to the 2001 Inspector General Report showing $2.3 trillion unaccounted for in that year’s DOD budget or if $2.3 trillion grew to $6.5 trillion?  In any case, it’s not an undisclosed fact that DOD receives and spends more money OFF-BOOK than it does ON-BOOK.  The question we as citizens might ask, because  our Elected Congressional Members responsible for budget oversight won’t, is; “where does this DOD off-book money come from and where does it go”?  Similarly, how large are other Federal Agency unaccounted for dollar amounts?  Ms. Catherine Austin Fitts of the Solari Report estimates black budget totals to now be more than $40 trillion.

Also in light of the above statistics, consider that the 2011 partial Federal Reserve Audit by the Government Accounting Office (GAO) disclosed more than $16 trillion allocated to banks and corporations, much of that dispensed internationally by the FED.  Specifics regarding these allocations remain thin.  Are American citizens legally responsible for this money?  If so, do we deserve a proper Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) analysis?  It’s my understanding that the Fed has its own accounting standards and is not held to GAAP standards.  I’m not certain of this and perhaps it’s appropriate for central banks, but if correct, isn’t it curious?

As we get into 2017 the global economy is drowning in on-book sovereign debt as is the United States.  Main Street citizens paying the bills are not permitted access to vast off-book (unaccounted for) spending and debt numbers, but we understand from Inspector General Reports on various agencies that the amounts are enormous and completely non-transparent.  Budget accountability does not exist in Washington D.C.  Obviously, raising interest rates on this debt mountain is willful economic suicide, yet historic economic cycles suggest our economy will reset to some standard of real value at some point in time, whether convenient or not.  After nearly ten years of quantitative easing do we even remember what real value is?  The current financial bubbles across multiple markets cannot be sustained.  Market corrections are usually crash and burn scenarios, but some economists suggest that handled properly, there still remains a small probability that Donald Trump, a very smart man, may be able to orchestrate a smooth transition from extreme over-spending and non-productivity to an economy at least marginally better for Main Street.  I don’t believe a smooth transition to be possible anymore, BUT…

…We should, as responsible citizens, ask ourselves anyway – WHAT DOES HAPPEN TO US ON MAIN STREET IF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION FAILS TO FIX HIS INHERITED 70-YEAR MESS?  We should ask so we can understand and prepare our families, friends and neighborhoods either way – as either way, success or failure, we the people of Main Street will live with, and pay for the resulting circumstance.  The FED has been bolstering the stock market and other markets sans meaningful oversight by Congress.  The Elite are and have been financially positioning themselves with hoards of gold, silver, other precious metals and non-digital, real assets.  Understand that if the banking system collapses, and it looks like it will; most if not all digital assets held by Main Street citizens will likely vanish.  The Oligarchs, inside traders like Rockefeller, Soros, Buffet and other pawns of privilege will be just fine in the coming decade.  By virtue of election, Trump is framed to take the blame, while those who orchestrated certain economic tragedy since WW II will skate free to do it again.  Will we be OK?  Will our children?  Take a minute and give this some thought.

We know the Federal Reserve’s interest is keeping the banking system and its controlling ownership liquid.  Talk of Main Street stimulus is nonsense outside minimal trickle-down.  Trump wants to spend $1 trillion or so on infrastructure.  As a retired civil engineer, I assure you $1 trillion toward infrastructure is a good and necessary idea, but serious needed infrastructure work falls more in the realm of $5 trillion.  Is something better than nothing?  Trump wants to reduce bloated, corrupt Federal spending and money laundering, but faces an enormous array of employee’s, vendors, contractors and special interests completely vested in the continued tumefaction of largely unsupervised Federal spending and off-book money laundering.  Our future depends on deciding now, if we are for or against President Trump’s success because regardless our own ideological preferences; his success is our success as his failure will be ours to own and pass on to our children.

Many of us know with certainty and the remainder, should Trump fail, may soon learn American government and its Elite handlers work hard for Oligarchs and themselves; no one else.  We on Main Street are pandered to, used, alone, without representation, without meaningful fiscal transparency, basically at the mercy of those to whom we gave the reins of self-governance since the 19th Century.  Is it in our best interest to defend Trump, whom we’re not sure about;  or should we jump on the fear, hatred and corruption Establishment Train we already know doesn’t give a hoot about Main Street useless eaters, other than to control us and harvest the wealth we create?

For a short while anyway – I’ll ride with Trump and pray he’s real; because support him or not; if Donald Trump fails, if the Establishment wins, Main Street America and the world will reap those storm clouds, now rising black, bold and threatening on our Main Street horizon.

Lying by the numbers!!!  When politicians we elect, and pay a great deal of money to for representing the world’s transnational monopolies in D.C.,  instead of we the people, lie to us about how great our economy is; we should at least have some idea how clever the lies are – because for one thing, there’s a lot of ’em.  For another, if you’re not prepared you could get robbed.  If you’re in the House or Senate your insider trading rights are worth a fortune.  We the people at least in our own minds, deserve a good honest lie from you, put together with reasonable care, little disclosure and some attitude.  After all, we the people are paying for it… and paying dearly.  At least provide us a good show.  P.T. Barnum always provided a good show and your D.C. circus tradition should stand tall and proud on the midway.

OFFICIAL UNEMPLOYMENT STATISTICS?
The U-3.  Good statistic or crappy lie?

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) tracks six different metrics for unemployment.  When looking at unemployment reports the viewer should be aware of the metric or metrics being included for reporting purposes as these so-called official reports are regularly employed (pun intended) for propaganda purposes rather than information dissemination or put another way; obfuscation, not clarification.

The six BLS unemployment metrics are:

 (See https://www.bls.gov/lau/stalt.htm for 2016 Annual Averages.)

*****
U-1 Persons unemployed 15 weeks or longer, as a percent of the civilian labor force.  2016 U-1: 2.0%

U-2 Job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs, as a percent of the civilian labor force.  2016 U-2:  2.3%

U-3 Total unemployed, as a percent of the civilian labor force (official unemployment rate).  2016 U-3:  4.9%

U-4 Total unemployed plus discouraged workers, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus discouraged workers.  2016 U-4:  5.2%

U-5 Total unemployed, plus discouraged workers, plus all other persons marginally attached to the labor force, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force.  2016 U-5:  5.9%

U-6 Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force.  2016 U-6:  9.6%
*****

The vigilant receiver of .gov unemployment statistics will carefully consider the specified parameters (identified on the BLS website) of what is or isn’t included within each of the U-1 through U-6 metrics – particularly the popular U-3.

U-3 is the officially published unemployment percentage regularly given out by the Federal government and echoed across our largely uninformed nation by CIA compromised, fake news bureaus.  U-3 is a real number, but hardly reflects unemployment levels across Main Street America.

To grasp actual Main Street unemployment levels, economist John Williams, of ShadowStats Alternative Unemployment Rate (See http://www.shadowstats.com/) fame suggests the BLS’ highest metric, the U-6 category is still not an accurate indicator of real life unemployment conditions.  U-6 doesn’t consider those individuals unemployed, who have given up looking for work after more than 12 months of searching.  Mr. Williams says to obtain a realistic estimate of Main Street unemployment, add the BLS U-6 figure  (obtain from https://www.bls.gov/lau/stalt.htm) to the long term unemployed (more than one year, (see https://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t12.htm) who quit looking for work, but still list themselves as unemployed.

If we take the BLS 2016 Average Annual U-6 rate of 9.6% and add to it the BLS February 2017 percentage of unemployed for 15 weeks to 26 weeks, that is, 14%; we obtain a more realistic Main Street unemployment rate for February 2017 of 23.6%.  This seems about what we see in my Arizona neighborhood.  I hope yours is better.  Note that in the interest of conservatism, I only went so far as 15 to 26 weeks at 14% per BLS.  The over 27 week stat is 23.8%, which corresponds more closely with the 63% labor participation rate published by BLS.

The above 1600 Watch, 23.6% unemployment estimate corresponds fairly well to the February 2017 BLS labor participation rate of 63%, which indicates 37% of American workers are not working.  When more than 90 million working age Americans are not working and the U.S. population is roughly 313 million (not all workers, of course), the unemployment rate is not below 5%.  This official government figure, the current U-3 of 4.9% is pure political obfuscation.

Another doozy is the calculated OFFICIAL RATE OF INFLATION.

OFFICIAL RATE OF INFLATION STATISTICS?
Valid information or just another crappy lie?

A cynical person might suggest our government intentionally MIS-calculates inflation rates as low as possible to avoid adding COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENTS to beneficiaries of programs like Social Security.  How do they do this we may inquire?

Rate of inflation, say over the past year is a simple calculation.  Take last year’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), call it P1; subtract it from this year’s CPI, call it P2; divide the difference by P1 as the basis; and multiply by 100 to obtain a percentage.  It looks like this: ((P2 – P1)/P1) x 100 = Rate of Inflation for the past year.

Example, where: P1 = 104; P2 = 106:  ((106-104)/104) x 100 = 1.92% inflation for the year

Obviously, if we vary the inputs used in each time period, rather than holding them constant as they were originally; the calculated inflation rate for the period in question can easily and predictably be manipulated up or down.  Let politics be the judge.

The CPI is a bit more complicated and that’s where the inflation rate magick happens.  Statistical data are easily altered by varying inputs.  If not careful; garbage in; garbage out as they say.  If interested in an educated tome on this subject of CPI, I suggest perusing the following paper:  http://file.scirp.org/pdf/ME20100200005_38971786.pdf.  Take a look and you’ll quickly  grasp why I’ve not included equations for CPI calc’s.

For the rest of us civilians, let’s just understand that by including or not including certain items or by changing entirely those items included or not included, we can conveniently manipulate the data.  For instance:  using an example recently provided by Mr. Paul Craig Roberts (See http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/), let’s imagine the price variation for an expensive cut of steak to be included in the CPI calculation.  Let’s imagine that price has risen significantly over the past year.  Therefore, including this price change in the data set will contribute to an increase in the calculated CPI.  Ouch!  We don’t want that.  It sounds bad if you’re a politician.  So, let’s revise the way CPI is calculated.  Let’s lie to we the people.  Isn’t that what we politicos and bureaucrats are paid to do by the big important monopolies anyway?  Absolutely, and the voting booth proves it.

Just dump that expensive cut of meat from the index and substitute a less expensive cut having a much less significant price increase – or better, no increase.  Voila!  Problem solved.  Now we’ve taken a time honored, economic benchmark and reduced it to meaningless nonsense.  If I’m not mistaken, this is exactly what BLS has done using what many refer to as Greenspan’s “substitution theory”, now added to by the “Chained CPI” concept – none of which I really care to understand, other than to know we’re being lied to on Main Street.

Magickly, our economy looks great no matter how loud that flushing noise is getting; and we the corrupt thugs can be re-elected by we the people and keep on keepin’ on shillin’ for the world’s greediest transnational monopolies and our lucrative inside trading deals.  Ain’t it great?

Just sayin’.  Citizen beware if you dare!

Climate change is real, but what drives it?  How should it be studied?  Can a tax fix it?

Global temperature measurement, while being perfected, has so far been analogous to measuring orange diameters estimated by measuring apples; claiming estimates must be adjusted for accuracy by measuring lemon diameters estimated by measuring apricots, then interpolated to apples; then fine tuning the whole thing by comparing lime diameters estimated by measuring oranges and finally projecting the illogical results back to orange diameters.  This sort of nonsense constitutes profound scientific consensus per con-artists the likes of Al Gore and becomes the basis for transferring $trillions to Elite dynastic families and their dutiful pawns from hard working people around the world.

If I’m not a climate denier and don’t scoff at climate science, why would I make the facetious statement above?  Two reasons.  First, the word consensus has no place in science.  If science is systematized knowledge with various departments, say climate science; and if study is the application of mental faculties to the acquisition of knowledge; then we come full circle.  Science is study.  Consensus implies no further study required, arrogantly suggesting we know everything. No science needed.  This is ignorance and denial, not science.

Secondly, explain scientific truth as best we know it.  Admit what we don’t know or are uncertain of.  Hypothesize our theories, but treat theories as theory, not fact.  Discuss theory honestly.  To do otherwise is dishonest at best and worse, becomes manipulative politicization of science toward whatever outside agenda is pursued… usually money, power or both.

If you’re a millennial looking forward to paying your Carbon Tax, you may at least ponder the following.  Weather stations were originally created to monitor local daily weather.  They were not designed to reliably measure global climate variation over time and must be re-vamped to do so.  Collection of temperature data is particularly difficult to standardize and though progress is being made, old data, pre-1940’s data and today’s data don’t go together and as such, ought be treated accordingly, not forced into contrived, possibly erroneous compatibility.  This is unnecessary and counter-productive.  Popular climate preachers are typically disingenuous regarding these concerns.

Water holds more heat than land, therefore is a significant area of concern.  On-water measurement variables include, but are not limited to:  Was water temperature checked at the water surface?  How far above the surface?  How quickly?  At what time of day?  Did time of day vary?  In what type of container – metal, wood, plastic, fabric?  Below the water surface?  How deep?  Were a ship’s water intake tubes used for sampling?  How large a ship?  How deep are its intake tubes?  How close to the engine heat were the samples taken?  Oceans never stop moving.  What effect do currents have on sampling?  Are sampling locations constant – variable – by how much?

On-land measurement variables include, but are not limited to:  Time of day sampling consistency.  Has the time of day for sampling varied?  Has the weather sampling station been relocated – how far – did conditions change?  Was it near the top of a hill and now is at the bottom?  Was it in the shade and is now in the sun?  Was it not protected and now is contained within a building?  Is the measuring device located near a building exhaust fan?  Are the measuring devices different today than equipment used in the past?  Was the equipment located in a rural area that is now urban?  Are the measuring devices properly and regularly calibrated?  Are the sampling employees qualified – by whom – how?  The list of variables is endless – but not at all insurmountable if handled with rigorous discipline.

Global warming enthusiasts insist that raw temperature data cannot be trusted or used due to above recognized issues and dozens more to boot.  I don’t disagree this is an issue.  To suggest consistency or uniformity exists in temperature measurement across many different countries and cultures over long periods of time is ridiculous.  GW enthusiasts insist this data must be adjusted, cleaned and homogenized.  I don’t necessarily disagree.  However, professional judgement based on experience and education are intrinsic to selecting and implementing these adjustments.  There are no internationally accepted standards established, though progress is being made.  This lack of standardization renders homogenization protocols used by different agencies across the globe – non-uniform at best; arbitrary at worse.  It’s not possible to have obvious recognizable variations in protocol and equipment and still claim consensus across the data streams.  This is dishonest.  Why don’t we just admit what the difficulties are and get on with honest debate?  That would be credible… at least more credible.

I don’t have a bone to pick with climatology.  I do have a bone to pick with so-called scientists who claim to know more than they know; or who politicize findings via clever data adjustments; particularly when motivated by continued need for financing and paying the mortgage.  Humans don’t tend to bite the hand that feeds them and scientists are no exception.  In fact, they may be the classic case.

No scientist claiming consensus is an honest scientist.  There’s always more to discover and no one understands this better than real scientists.  Lorentz uncovered the backbone of Einstein’s Relativity Theories with his equations for transforming time, distance and mass in terms of velocity. Einstein then carried the ball into the relativity end zone – so now we have consensus.  Right?  Wrong.  Now we’re digging into quantum theory and relativity isn’t necessarily contradicted, but is certainly tipped upside down as physics fails completely to explain the absolute nature of reality and stubbornly resists reaching out to the metaphysical abyss for possible answers – the Grand Unified Theory or whatever.  We don’t know what we don’t know.  We need our scientists to be honest and should demand no less.

Studies reveal significant factors plausibly impacting earth’s climate patterns beyond anthropomorphic (human) activity, some of which appear cyclical.  Two come immediately to mind.  Sun-spot activity for example.

Dr. Matthew J. Penn (National Solar Observatory, Tucson, AZ.) offered this startling consideration regarding sun-spot cycles.  (Taken from Monica Young’s July 24, 2013 Sky & Telescope article:  http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/the-weakest-solar-cycle-in-100-years/

*************

Penn offered another, more catastrophic option: the sunspot cycle might die altogether. His team uses sunspot spectra to measure their magnetic fields, and his data show a clear trend: the magnetic field strength in sunspots is waning.

Penn’s research shows that sunspots’ magnetic field strength is declining over time. Sunspots can only form if the magnetic field is greater than around 1,500 Gauss, so if the trend continues, we could be headed for a time where no spots appear on the Sun’s surface.

  1. Penn

“If this trend continues, there will be almost no spots in Cycle 25, and we might be going into another Maunder Minimum,” Penn states. The first Maunder Minimum occurred during the second half of the 17th century. Almost no spots were seen on the Sun during this time, which coincided with Europe’s Little Ice Age.
*****
Dr. Penn is not alone wondering if a new ice age is more probable than global warming.  There is no real consensus.

Milankovitch Cycles are another example.  Milankovic and others have studied and described their findings relative to collective effects of variation in earth’s rotational and orbital movements on climate over many thousands of years.  Back in the Roaring 20’s, Serbian geophysicist and astronomer, Milutin Milankovic discovered variations in orbital eccentricity, axial tilt and precession resulted in cyclical variation in solar radiation reaching the earth.  This variation (orbital forcing) strongly influences climatic patterns on earth.  This has been confirmed by analysis of deep-ocean cores by others (Hays, Imbrie & Shackleton), though many questions remain unanswered.  Axial tilt variation appears to be significant, whereas elliptical orbit variation has only minor effects.

*****

How can climate scientists develop so-called models leaving out sun-spot activity, cyclical variation of earth’s axis of rotation and elliptical orbit and still suggest their childish models establish climate consensus based primarily on anthropomorphic activity?  This is a bad joke; is unprofessional; dishonest; and undermines climate study credibility.

Dishonesty in climatology disgraces the sincere scientists among us and raises legitimate questions:  To whose benefit?  Where is the money going?  I’m a 65-year old retiree.  None of this impacts my generation much.  As a millennial, however, you may want to ask a question or two before jumping on the Carbon Tax bus.  When someone demands your money; Ask who?  Ask why? Ask to what purpose?

  1. In what manner does any tax reduce CO2 emissions? {I see money changing hands, but no effect on carbon cycles what-so-ever.}
  2. Since Carbon Tax credits are created out of thin air, like fiat currency; who gets to create these credits from nothing and sell them for $trillions of dollars once corrupt government pawns have mandated them by law?  Al Gore and friends?  Why them?  Why not you?

For what it’s worth, the Rothschild/Rockefeller and friends central banking fraud is finally coming to an insolvent end.  We might ask, how do inbred idiots authorized to print money from thin air go broke?  Amazing level of greed and stupidity here, but I digress.

  1. Is it possible that these dynastic families; these corrupt, conscienceless, sometimes pedophilic Oligarchs see the end of their criminal banking enterprise and view the Carbon Tax as their new bonanza? Their new free ride on the backs of the gullible?

In my view, central banking has proved to be the largest criminal enterprise in economic history.  The Carbon Tax will dwarf it in terms of sheer volume of wealth transfer from workers of the world to the Oligarchs through compliant, psychopathic government thugs.

The Carbon Tax is about wealth transfer and Oligarch control.  It has nothing to do with environment or climate.  If we wish to be environmentalists and many of us do; we should do so intelligently and effectively.  Listening to con-men like Al Gore and friends is neither.  Let’s at least demand honesty in our universities, scientists and leaders.  It’s not too much to ask.

I don’t pretend to know if Donald Trump is what he says.  Time and his actions will tell.  Hopefully, a bit more than the single month to date.  This much we do know.  The war mongering, Neo-Con Establishment; say treasonous Republicans like McCain and cannibalistic Democrats like Clinton along with the Oligarch controlled media, all of Congress and most of our courts are unanimously going full-tilt, group-think bat-shit to destroy Trump.  Unfortunately, they carry significant portions of heavily entrained Main Street on their drooling bus-ride to hell and world-wide violence.  Given that transnational monopolies controlled by very few dynastic families took over the U.S. economic system in 1913 and garnered full political control with the highly successful 1963 coup; now freely running our conscienceless Fascist system, a mockery of Constitutional self governance; we ought be paying attention and thinking for ourselves, not parroting the seeds of our own destruction like lemmings looking for a cliff.

I watched the Trump Press Conference on Thursday (02-16-2017), was struck by and disappointed by four things.

The first thing was (and is) President Trump’s apparently sincere desire to work with countries around the world in peaceful, mutually beneficial – or to use his word, “FAIR” partnership – even with countries the BANKING/WAR/OIL BUSINESS MOGULS prefer us hate…and profitably kill.  How many times did President Trump reiterate in various ways over the course of more than an hours’ unscripted Q & A; WAR IS NOT THE ANSWER?  He claims to desire PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH.  Human history demonstrates no other path to peace – at least none uncovered in anthropological records, so his stance seems reasonable from a leadership standpoint, though uncomfortably and perhaps necessarily close to aiding the military industrial complex.  What would you do, if you were he?  In his position?  Under oath to protect and defend?

The slavering media drones clamoring for and mindlessly inferring, if not insolently demanding Trump take us to war with Russia was astonishing.  WTF???  How stupid is media stupid?  How stupid can journalism stupid be?  What’s wrong with these people…and more importantly, what’s wrong with the conditioned folks on Main Street soaking this mindless hatred up like thirsty sponges lost in an intelligence desert?  I get that American education is failing miserably, but do we have to brag on it to the world?

The second thing was (and is) the compulsive grasping by journalism school sycophants for smoke and mirrors, non-reality and the screeching insistence that an obvious psyop is real.  WTF again???  There still  isn’t and never has been one shred of evidence provided by anyone that Russian people hacked the morons at DNC and the war mongering Hillary camp.  Thankfully, the HACKERS, through WickiLeaks primarily, exposed to Main Street that the Clintons are guilty of treason as are most of Congress, not to mention extensive involvement of the Privileged Powerful in morally depraved pedophilia; not to mention, unsavory implications of illegal child vaccine testing and organ harvesting in UN protected seclusion as is going on in central Haiti.  It is now revealed, to those paying attention, that our CIA at Oligarch behest, misusing American wealth, diplomatic influence and military power are de-stabilizing defenseless countries like Somalia, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Ukraine, Libya, Syria and Haiti to name a few – where thousands of orphans are brutally created (we call it liberated), kidnapped (we call it rescued), used for illegal drug testing (we call it UN peace-keeping aid) and finally organ harvested ( we don’t even recognize this one) before hiding evidence (we call it burial)…and that’s for the less attractive kids.  The pretty ones are taken for sale as pedophilic sex slaves in well traveled circles of the rich and famous in horror shows like Washington D.C.  BUT THE MEDIA AND MAIN STREET DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT OR DISCUSS ANY OF THIS – DO THEY -DO WE?

The third thing is simply insistence by apparently ignorant media drones that their Oligarch motivated lies are somehow justified or necessary.  WTF??? Agendas are agendas and everyone has theirs.  We used to have a right to our own creative agendas here in America, including the editorial press, but today the Press Corpse throws tantrums insisting this is not acceptable.  It’s the Oligarch IDEOLOGY FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE OR THE HIGHWAY.  Chant, chant, chant!  Screech, screech screech!  As Hitler said, “Make the lie big and tell it often”.  As Bertrand Russel taught (and I’m paraphrasing); dumb down the useless eaters (Main Street) and if that doesn’t work, drug ’em until they believe snow is black, not white and they’re content to live as impoverished feudal serfs serving their bettersIn what way do media lies serve the best interest of anyone?  The negligent press wreak destruction upon their own children with this pathetic nonsense.  Lies serve ignorance, nothing more.

The fourth thing is the schizophrenic anti-war – or is it hypocritical Left and corrupt Right wailing like hyenas?  WTF???  These conditioned morons, “useful idiots” as Lenin referred to academics and press, ignored Clinton Administration war crimes in Somalia and Yugoslavia.  Then openly and rightly hated Bush I for misusing American might to commit war crimes and aid Oligarch Resource Rape.  Then completely ignore Obama’s war crimes, sinking far below anything Bush I could ignorantly dream of by murdering thousands of innocent civilians with drones… and now, it appears they actually have in President Donald Trump, an ANTI-WAR / PRO-PEACE / PRO-DIPLOMATIC LEADER sitting in the Oval Office and they can’t stop berating him for trying to work peacefully with other nations during the lousy four weeks he’s been in office.  This is either STUPIDITY, HYPOCRISY  or I guess both at sub-human levels of disgrace rendering it embarrassing to be human.

I don’t know if Trump is real.  I don’t go to the meetings – BUT FOR OUR OWN SAKE ON MAIN STREET AND ACROSS THE WORLD – Trump deserves a chance to show who he is.  We on Main Street deserve the same opportunity.

Like the late John Lennon so eloquently and melodically sang back in ’69 with his Plastic Ono Band“GIVE PEACE A CHANCE“.  If not, destruction is always waiting in the Neo-Con wings.  Destruction is forever if we keep on choosing it.  The Oligarchs insure we get what we ask for.

Collectivist Anarchists such as Mikhail Bakunin (Statism and Anarchy, 1873), along with Communists Karl Marx, Frederich Engels  (Communist Manifesto-1848; Capital, Volume 1-1867, Volume 2-1885, Volume 3-1894) and others were justly disturbed by the cruel, sometimes vicious exploitation of working people they believed to be the direct, inevitable result of capitalism at the hands of the bourgeoisie.  Without getting into  complex socioeconomic theories debated among pioneers of Socialism, Anarchism, Syndicalism, etc., let’s agree that generally speaking, the prevailing discourse at the time (19th Century) was wage earner (proletariat) versus wage provider (capitalist/bourgeoisie) and the ensuing class struggle.

Marx didn’t so much promote Communism as predict it.  Some of Marx’s predictions came to pass, but much of his perceived future came down through history very differently.  For example;  Marx correctly foresaw the inevitable rise of monopoly capitalism, but the destruction of small business and wage earner wealth did not wholly diminish as he thought it would.  While corrupt monopolies did flourish, small and medium businesses also flourished and worker earnings grew significantly.  It turns out, all boats tend to rise under free market capitalism in spite of corruption and unfair advantage.  The revolution never materialized, but the despicable evolution is alive and well, though of a very different nature than Marx thought.

Marx and others opined that the proletariat would violently revolt or as Bernstein, Gramsci and others opined, non-violently evolve with the workers taking control of the State; destroying private property ownership; ending inequality; finally ending the need for a State entirely; the result being a prosperous paradise.  Marx and Engels realized that the State as an intermediate step would for some period of time have to be frighteningly powerful, but then would magically go away as it realized it was no longer necessary.  What Karl Marx envisioned happening, up to the powerful State part, in my humble opinion, did in fact happen, is happening – just not at all the way he imagined.

It never occurred to Marx that the bourgeoisie, or as I call them today, the Elite, the world’s dynastic families, the Oligarchy, the Plutocracy – would identify Communism or more generally Collectivism as the ideal mechanism for obtaining total monopoly control of all governments, resources, people and wealth on earth.  Marx never saw that coming.  His students and academic adherents still don’t see it; but the Elite see it and use it perfectly to their greedy advantage.  Marx’s important work provided the Elite, the world’s largest, most corrupt transnational monopoly owners a road map, a business plan by which they could hope to rule the world.  And as we can all see, they are trying their inbred best to make that happen.

Main Street citizens, for the most part are busy raising families, earning a living, recreating and so forth.  They don’t pay much attention to political ideology nor its impact on legislation, regulation, taxation or their lives.  The inbred Elite on the other hand, may have more money than brains or honor, but they do pay attention.  The Elite realized in about a minute that Marx’s vision could be a wonderful thing for them – if they could manage history as a self-fulfilling prophesy with themselves as controllers of the State rather than workers.  Nothing makes control of populations easier than top-down, centrally controlled government.

The Bolshevik Revolution, Mao’s Revolution and the spread of international communism, now more digestibly called socialism have been and still are entirely funded by the world’s wealthiest Elite; are supported by the Elite through their Foundations, Institutes, think tanks, study groups, associations and of course, as Lenin so aptly exclaimed, the useful idiots of academia.  Good intentions are oft used against us.

MONOPOLY CANNOT SURVIVE FREE MARKET CAPITALISM.  Monopoly requires assistance and protection, usually provided through the wheel chair of corrupt government regulation and taxation, in order to destroy potential competition and provide free reign for price fixing, government policy manipulation, etc.  Marx inadvertently handed the keys for world domination off to the same Elite he so despised;  then we the people gave them the car…the train….the boat….the plane…and everything else to go with all that – and we don’t even realize it.  We think we’re fighting it.

The so-called New World Order (NWO) isn’t a conspiracy.  It’s an effective BANKING/OIL/WAR BUSINESS PLAN operating in plain sight every day of every week.  A plan whose evil strength lies in its ability to go unnoticed; to masquerade as something it’s not, while cloaking it’s impoverishing, enslaving nature in a media cloak of propaganda, entrainment and conditioning.

Capitalism allows for monopoly, but discourages it.  Collectivism not only allows monopoly; but protects and nourishes it.  It’s time as voters we recognize we’re being had.  R’s and D’s are all wholly owned subsidiaries of the Elite Oligarchy.   Main Street has zero representation in D.C.  Transnational monopolies have 500% of the ears in D.C.  That means our elected and appointed officials are usually bribed more than once, hence more than 100% corruption.

I’m not sure how we’re going to fix this, but I do know we Main Street folk better start discussing it and we best exercise a bit of individual, free thinking before casting our 2106 votes in November.  As the late, Aaron Russo said and I’m paraphrasing; Quit being good R’s and D’s.  Start being good Americans.  We owe this to ourselves and the generations to come.  Let’s take back self-governance together as the good, decent people we are.
