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.

This is one of my unsolicited, gray-haired, Dad-Talks for my Millennial friends regarding their future in context of this 2016 election.  For the White House:  as usual, not two choices, but two limited options selected for us by Elite pawns.  Option One, behind The Right Door;  unknown Casino Mogul Trump, who may or may not be good for Main Street and the world, but whom the Corrupt Left/Right Establishment are terrified may attempt, if elected, to derail D.C. fraud and criminality on behalf of Main Street citizens.  Option Two, behind the The Left Door; known integrity challenged Hillary, whose thirty-year track record proves pandering talk changes nothing outside the Clinton bank account, whose political access sales continue to grow at an impressive treasonous rate.  Likely reality is, the systemic D.C. corruption infection runs so deep, no President, regardless of Party or intentions can measurably cure it.  The U.S. is going to experience a serious economic downturn in the not too distant future.  There’s no stopping it at this point.  Propagandized D.C. nonsense of unemployment under 5%, no inflation and so forth is absurd.  The question is, where do we go; where do Millennials go from the downturn?  Your choice entirely and as always in economics, not to choose is to choose.  Why should you allow others to make your choices for you?

Journalism is dead.  Objective news reporting is dead.  Who, What, When, Where and Why are no longer objectively reported, but are instead used and packaged to sell Main Street whatever impoverishing agenda the owners of the six remaining media monopolies wish sold by the conditioned drones staffing their networks and  cable news outlets.  You get supposed conservative B.S. on one side and liberal B.S. on the other, but both are owned and operated by the same Oligarchy families and differ only in meaningless, distracting, pandering rhetoric.  If you want facts, truth or honest analysis, you must wade through alternative media to find it.  There is no other way.  If you don’t care about your future it doesn’t matter.  If you do care about truth and your future, you’ll have to do the work.  As Edward Bernays once wrote, “All news is propaganda and all propaganda is lies”.

Doing the work means THINKING FOR YOURSELF; USING YOUR IMAGINATION; INVESTIGATING ORIGINAL SOURCES.  The Plutocracy understands unimaginative, non-thinking people will accept Oligarchic Control indefinitely and can actually be drugged into being pleased with it.  (Bertrand Russell wrote extensively on this idea.)  Educated, thinking, imaginative individuals on the other hand, never accept Oligarchic Control for very long.  It is critical to your health, well-being and future that as a Millennial you grasp this simple concept and how television, radio and other media are used to condition and entrain us with WHAT TO THINK while simultaneously enabling us NOT TO THINK AT ALL.

Understand that you’re being had, systematically harvested actually, to borrow a Catherine Austin Fitts’ term, ( https://solari.com/blog/ ) just as my Baby Boomer generation was and is being had.  American citizens have been and are being conditioned / entrained since 1948, primarily through The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations to incrementally accept Oligarchic control of their lives; the ultimate Plutocracy Goal being reduction of the general Main Street population to a state of free-roaming, neo-feudal serfdom.  Through drugs, propaganda and mis-education we are taught that snow is black, not white.  As we accept this entrainment; unseemly coercion, guns, cattle cars and expensive re-education centers are no longer necessary.  This is not theory.  This is an actual action plan and below is a partial list of people to study, all of whom have publically written and spoken of the need for and nature of this plan.  If you care about your future, do your own research.  Take a few moments and at least investigate the following people’s activities and plans for your life as a beginning shot at having a real life instead of a matrix driven psy-op.

Cecil J. Rhodes
Alfred Milner
John Rawlings Rees
Kurt Lewin
Theodor W. Adorno
Bertrand Russell
Edward Bernays

The short list above will get you going on a path toward getting your arms around what’s actually going on in the world –  cause it ain’t related to anything FOX NEWS, MSNBC, NPR, CNN, TALK RADIO or any of the lame stream, statist media are distracting us with, while the media owners, the Elite Oligarchy wander across the planet ruining millions of lives and busying themselves with resource rape.

If KNOWLEDGE IS POWER as Eustace Mullins told us – I sincerely hope my Millennial friends wake up from our mutually shared, Tavistock induced coma and do a better job of self-government than my naive Baby Boomer generation has?  When I speak of things to get your arms around; here’s a D.C. financial fraud example.  Department of Defense (DoD) misplaced $2.3 trillion dollars in 2001.  The DoD Inspector General reports that for fiscal year 2015, DoD misplaced $6.5 trillion dollars.  From 2008 to 2016 the unaudited, Federal Reserve has given away $27 trillion in bank bailouts. (For comparison, realize in 2008, $8 trillion would have paid off every mortgage in the continental United States.)  Analysts are estimating other Federal Agencies like HUD, Dept. of Energy, etc. have approximately another $15 trillion unaccounted for.  This is a total of $50 trillion missing and unaccounted for in Washington D.C. since 2001.

The proposed 2017 annual budget is only $4.15 trillion.  http://federal-budget.insidegov.com/l/120/2017-Estimate .  The United States hasn’t had a Constitutionally mandated, Congressionally approved fiscal budget since 2009, when Obama took office.  Can we say PLAUSIBLE DENIAL for both fully corrupt, complicit parties?  Can we even imagine the level of fraud and corruption necessary to lose $50 trillion dollars and never have one D.C. politician pawn question it or the lame stream press mention it?  Congressional oversight?  None at all.  Under the table deals?  500%.

WTF?  Maybe we should be asking about this sort of thing during our infantile, so-called Presidential debates, instead of what a billionaire Casino Mogul does in his free time?  I mean a billionaire Casino Guy gets some gorgeous pussy on the side.  Wow!   Never saw that coming, huh?  Are we this vacuous?  I hope not… and don’t misunderstand.  I’m not defending pussy on the side, it’s a foregone conclusion in the world of big money, but frankly we have more important things to be wondering about and I hope our Millennials are up to the heavy lifting because obviously myself and my baby Boomer generation haven’t got it handled.

GOOD LUCK KIDS and GOD SPEED!!!

If you are a Millennial or aging Baby Boomer you are literally being harvested.

Before I explain my thoughts, a quick digression.

While we distract and  irritate each other with what The Donald does with his free time, ignore Bill Clinton’s actual rapes, Hillary’s treason and never ending lies to uneducated black people, gays, etc.; our Federal government has admitted to missing more than $35 trillion dollars.  An interesting feat given Obama’s latest budget reconciliation of $4 ridiculous trillion and change.  D. C hasn’t gotten a budget approved since 2009, but these pathetic political mutants had time for more than $35 trillion to go unaccounted for – AND WE THE DISTRACTED PEOPLE DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE.  How wide do we think Kim’s butt is?  We know that.

The $35 or so trillion consists of Bush’s $2.3 trillion missing from Dept of Defense (DoD) in 2001; Obama’s $6.5 trillion missing from DoD in 2015; and the $27 trillion in Bush/Obama bailouts to the big banks from 2008 through 2016 via the unaudited, privately owned Federal Reserve.  Financial analysts claim there is another $15 trillion or so unaccounted for in other Federal Agencies; so a total of $50 trillion missing.  For what it’s worth $8 trillion would have paid off every mortgage in America in 2008 – so in who’s pockets did $27 trillion disappear – cause I don’t know anyone on Main Street who had their mortgage paid off by Uncle Sam’s banker thugs.  End of digression.

Skilled financial analysts such as Catherine Austin Fitts are looking at this astonishing circumstance, wondering if Elite insiders are conducting a CUT-AND RUN before the predicted economic crash, whether it’ll be a slow burn or crash and burn.  I happen to agree with their musings and questions, though what follows are my own heavily biased opinions.

I believe the continuing decision by the Federal Reserve not to raise interest rates suggests a decision has been made as to what direction the Elite intend to try guiding our economy.  The Fed has to raise rates to save the pension funds, which are completely upside down and will eventually begin defaulting on commitments.  However, raising interest rates will kill our already floundering, production challenged economy.

The Fed isn’t raising rates and if they do, it will be a tiny pandering band-aid, not a real fix.  This suggests to me, they have decided to rape the pension funds.  The Obama Administration’s Dodd-Frank legalized the taking of our pension funds, along with other bank accounts, but doing so openly could instigate difficult-to-manage civil unrest, even among apathetic Americans.  Easier just to steal it from the unwashed because they don’t pay attention anyway.  I’m guessing the Oligarchy decided there is no way they’re going to waste trillions of saved Main Street retirement dollars on nursing homes, meds and assistance for useless eater Baby Boomers.  No how – no way!

At least some of the big transnational monopolies are openly re-organizing and divesting themselves of liabilities.  They are off-loading red ink, retaining black ink and preparing to cut-and-run leaving Main Street to sort out the insolvent mess.  According to Ms. Fitts, Lockheed Martin is one such example.  When Main Street retirees realize their pensions have been cleaned out… it will be too late to fix.  It looks to me like Main Street citizens are literally being harvested by the Oligarchy families and it’s being done with the help of the corrupt goof-balls we elect to supposedly represent us in D.C.

I believe this harvesting decision was reached some time ago, as the Reagan Administration was already concerned about retirement fund unsustainablity for Baby Boomers back in the eighties.  There’s nothing here that hasn’t been known for several decades and unlike Main Streeters, the inbred Elite do pay attention.

What I’m saying here is – THE OLIGARCHY DOES NOT APPEAR TO INTEND BABY BOOMERS OR MILLENNIALS TO RETAIN ANY SORT OF SAVINGS OR EARNED RETIREMENT BENEFITS.  IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE PLANNING TO TAKE IT ALL – AND THEY ALREADY TOOK MORE THAN $50 TRILLION OF IT FOR THEMSELVES SINCE 2001.

We still have a Constitutionally recognized right to demand an explanation from D.C. as to where this money went and under what terms it will be paid back to the American people.  We must exercise this right before Main Street is convinced  to foolishly go the Constitutional Convention route, which will allow the Elite to deceitfully play around and ultimately deprive us legally, of every unalienable right our Founders sacrificed to provide us.  Ms. Fitts is a very smart woman and maintains the American people are not prepared to go up against the well organized Oligarchy’s legal team in a Constitutional debate.  She also asks: “Why should we risk changing our Constitution when we don’t enforce the one we have?  Just enforce what we already have.  It’s safer.”  I agree with her.  A Constitutional Convention held on a tilted playing field is not a contest we the people can win.

This 2016 election is not about Trump’s love life or Hillary’s vacuous lies.  It’s about the future of our world’s Main Street citizens.  Are we a herd of cattle as Bertrand Russell claims?  Or will we stand up for ourselves and our children?

Wake up folks – WE ARE BEING HAD – and we better demand accountability while we still can cause the crash and burn clock is ticking.  Will it be 2017?  2018?  2019?  I don’t pretend to know, but that clock is ticking, so act accordingly.

If I suggest our Constitutional Republic and its three malfeasant branches of government are no longer functional; that we the people are becoming neo-feudal, indebted serfs, because hard working Democrats and Republicans vote for politician pawns appropriating funds for a growing U.S. Administrative Dictatorship; an unelected dictatorship operated by dynastic families with controlling interest in the world’s  largest, most criminally fraudulent banks profitably funding said debt prison; families also holding controlling interest in every significant Fortune 500 company, many of which are despicable monopolies; monopolies staffing and operating all major Federal Regulatory Agencies for their own protection while taxing and regulating Main Street competition out of business; and who own and operate elected and appointed officials via juicy insider trading deals and lucrative post-political career postings with these same monopolies, all paid for and voted for by naive Main Street citizens in the service of various dehumanizing Elite Agendas – would you believe me?

Of course not!  We’ve all been taught (conditioned actually) by TV, radio and so-called newspapers that the obvious circumstances stated above are not the case… and unfortunately many of us irrationally accept this to be true, though our intuitive guts tell us otherwise.

The world’s dynastic families declared psychological war on the individuality, creativity and freedom of unwashed United States citizens shortly after WW II through London’s  The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, finally launching their first visible attack in 1959 via the CIA/MI6 Psychedelic Poisoning Escapades birthing 60’s counter-culture and finally, the full on 70’s CIA drug running program flooding the streets of America with marijuana, heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine.  Please note that every step of this insidious, dehumanizing pogrom was enabled and funded by our elected Representatives in Washington D.C. – big government in action.  Even conservative hero, Ronald Reagan was deeply embedded in this covert op along with George Herbert Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton as Governor of Arkansas, Ollie North and too many others to name.  You may recall Iran-Contra and eliminated journalist Gary Webb, who supposedly shot himself not once, but twice in the head, trying to tell Main Street what was going on.

Most 1960’s hippies, particularly the Haight-Ashbury wanna-be’s after ’67 or so, naively believed they were breaking free of the Establishment, flipping off The Man, making smart choices, learning to love and of course, nurturing the earth in a more profound way.  60’s reality was stepping neck deep without waders, straight into The Man’s covertly contrived river of shit, via Bertrand Russell’s CIA operated vision of medicating American citizens into complacent acceptance of Elite servitude through drug induced infantilism and propaganda, all aided by Frankfurt School, Theodore Adorno’s theories regarding musically induced psychosis.  More cost effective and less messy Tavistock realized, allowing unsuspecting people to chose  imprisonment within their own minds rather than martialling expensive jack boots and re-education camps.  The Plutocracy’s experiment in forced Fascism through dictatorship in Nazi Germany had utterly, though profitably failed as did the Bolshevik Experiment.  When Mr. Hitler raged out of Oligarchy control, the surprised Elite had to put their lap dog down.  The millions of lives destroyed through the horror of bank-family-funded war didn’t bother the Oligarchy one whit.  They made boku bucks instigating war, drinking blood money champagne and then financing the rebuilding of dozens of cities their policies, over good cigars, destroyed.  Useless eater lives are worthless anyway Bertrand Russell opined and the Elite chant over caviar and cognac.

America’s 21st Century began as a fully operational, criminally insane, sociopathic, Tavistockian contrived psyop orchestrated by intellectually challenged, inbred blue bloods with more money than brains, but able to hire privileged, pathological technocrats to work for their foundations, institutes, think tanks and universities.  Tavistock learned that humans joining a group tend to abandon individual responsibility, adopting behaviors encouraged or coerced by the group.  Early mass drug experiments were staged through the CIA’s early 60’s manipulation of Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters’ Acid Tests and later the legendary bus ride (you’re on the bus or off the bus); 1967’s Monterey International Pop Music Festival, 69’s Woodstock (Kesey’s Merry Pranksters again as Hog Farm) and so on.  By the end of 1969 the Elite had through their trusty CIA operatives created more than half a million young drug enthusiasts to carry the chaotic message of drug induced delusion up and down the streets of America.  Today Tavistock propagandizes participation in distracting, emotionally charged, reason challenged mini-groups as the diseased limbs of the sickened cultural tree for every divisive concept imaginable; liberals against conservatives, men against women, gays against heteros, white against black, haves against have-nots, and so on.  Collectivism at its spiritually annihilating, drug induced best.

Sidebar:  Mr. Kesey purportedly first popped LSD in 1959 as a Stanford University (Tavistock school) creative writing, grad student volunteer for government funded drug research carried out at Palo Alto’s  Menlo Park Veterans Hospital.  An insidious military program testing effects of psychoactive drugs like Amphetamine IT-290, LSD, Mescaline and Psilocybin. The rest as they say is history, though in Mr. Kesey’s defense, he did speak out against the use of LSD in 1966.  I wasn’t there, unfortunately never met Mr. Kesey, a writer whose work I enjoy and have no idea whether his denouncement of acid was coerced to stay out of prison or believed, but either way, the damage was done; the Elite had their counter culture battering ram to set about bringing the independent American middle class to its drug soaked, bloody economic knees, where finally the Oligarchy hopes, we will beg for the Elites’ planned Hegelian solution, or managed synthesis as Hegel himself would have said.  The final synthesis is of course, a free roaming state of impoverished feudalism.  I don’t know whether Mr. Kesey garnered anything worthwhile from his experience, but I am personally saddened that so many of my Baby Boomer peers have never come to grips with the realization we’ve been had – and brutally so by cowardly, corrupt government Representatives we foolishly elect.

If we were smart, we’d turn off our TV sets and never turn them back on.  We won’t of course, so the next best thing is at least do ourselves the favor of watching fewer than 6-hours per day, which studies show, make us stupid.  We need to think for ourselves or as Thomas Jefferson predicted so long ago; we will be nothing more than serfs on the same land our Founders bled and died for.

Many politicians, media types, pundits and academics parrot the erroneous sound bite, “free markets have failed”.  To provide fairness they proclaim, we need more government intrusion so the little people can prosper.  We hear this with respect to most major industries from banking, energy and mining to automobile manufacturing and of late, health care.  Of course, those actually paying attention understand that there are no significant free markets in any of these areas.  Zero.  Zilch.  Nada.

Free markets have not failed.  Free markets have simply been abandoned; in the United States, formally since 1913.  In place of free markets, under the guise of consumer protection we have instead, government protected monopolies in every major industry.  The entire world and certainly the United States is now controlled by international conglomerate monopolies through a form of reverse fascism where the monopolies control government to serve their own agendas.  Granted, we still have over taxed, competitive small businesses on Main Street, but these are increasingly brutalized by corrupt, monopoly managed regulatory agencies every day of every week.  Competition, independence and self-actualization are done away with.

Some will say that big money isn’t political;  it simply wants political access and will pay to get it from whoever is in power.  As a sentiment, this is correct, but for today’s Global Elite, doesn’t go far enough.  First of all, never confuse honest Main Street corporations with Elite Monopolies.  The Elite don’t stand in the doorway, hat in hand, begging useless eater politicians for handouts and favors in exchange for contributions.  Much more effective to own the politicians lock, stock and barrel.  Big money learned over the past four hundred years or so that if you own and operate the politician, you can simply demand whatever you want, whenever you want it;  and voila – there it is – all at tax payer expense.  The politicians are readily owned by the BIG BANKS who control the debt money supply.  Every dime a politician pawn spends is borrowed from a bank, whether hard currency or digital dollars – and every debt dollar created pays interest to those banks and the families who own them.

The world’s Elite, made up of maybe 300 or so families, own nearly all central banks in this world and therefore control the money supply of nearly all nations.  This means they create loose money or can tighten money at their whim, thereby controlling ups and downs of the business cycle.  Through these families extends a network of interlocking corporate directorships and control extending across all major industries.  Beneath this corporate layer lies an enormously far reaching network of private clubs, foundations, institutes, think tanks, study groups and universities which function as the programming and vetting vehicles for those who will rise to success within the media and Ruling Class, both of which serve the Elite.  To aid in effectively programming the unwashed, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations has since World War II been unleashed upon Main Street by the Oligarchy for the study and enhancement of mass behavior modification.  We now self-impose unhealthy Fascism on ourselves through participation in small, divisive groups in what we victims perceive as protective group-think, programmed by an extensive media and educational programming process.  Guns, guards, threats and box cars are no longer necessary.  We cast uninformed votes for our own impoverishment.

All R & D politicians at the national level are owned and operated via the Federal Reserve, the controlling entity of which is the New York Branch.  SO – WHO ACTUALLY OWNS AND OPERATES OUR HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, U.S. SENATE AND WHITE HOUSE?  MONEY OWNS AND OPERATES ALL THREE via the New York Federal Reserve Bank, which is 80% controlled by eight families, four of whom are not American.  Per Mr. J.W. McCallister in his book The Grim Reaper, they are:  Goldman Sachs, Kuhn Loebs, Lehmans and Rockefellers, all of New York;  along with Israel Moses Seifs of Rome, Lazards of Paris, Rothschilds of Paris and London and Warburgs of Hamburg.  Through these eight families, the twelve Federal Reserve Branch Banks are controlled by ten banks.  Per CPA Thomas D. Schauf, they are:  N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York.  Four individuals owning significant shares of the Fed are William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman.

To provide the allusion of political choice, the Establishment Right basically functions as place holder for the Left politically, but takes the lead financially.  The Establishment Right has historically created the big money monopolies and finances the Left, while the Left claws tooth and nail using Establishment money for bigger and bigger, centrally controlled government, which in turn spawns the regulatory agencies which protect the monopolies.  It’s been an effective business strategy, but as usual, too much of anything is simply too much.  Elite greed along with geopolitical infighting among pathological Elite family members has led the world to the brink of financial collapse and caused a schism within the Oligarchy itself.  It appears there are now black hat and white hat factions battling for global control, which we see in the Clinton / Trump contest for the White house.  It appears Neo-con Hillary is working with the old guard black hats and Trump has sided with what appear to be the white hat faction, fed up with the failure of dehumanizing centralization and global resource rape.  It remains to be seen if this situation will be better or worse for us if Trump wins.  Hillary is pathologically bad all around, no question.

All major media outlets are owned and operated by the Global Elite, including the Associated Press (AP) and Reuters, which feed the propaganda line to the outlets.  Media control is paramount in controlling politicians in any top down, centrally controlled government structure because election outcomes are powerfully effected by media support and/or media enmity.  Candidates running for political office must have supportive media coverage, their opponents must have damaging media coverage and mountains of money will take care of everything else.  Public policy is handled the in the same manner.  Elite policies are put on a media pedestal, while opposing views are demonized or simply not covered at all.  Don’t underestimate the extent to which U.S. and world media lie by omission.  News and policy not covered can be more significant than what is covered.

The upshot of all this are endless manufactured battles designed to divide and conquer as well as to distract.  These media battles are typically shallow surface battles and never go anywhere near root causes of problems or issues.  They  are legion: Left vs Right; liberal vs conservative; rich vs poor; gay vs hetero; black vs white; Hispanic vs everybody; men vs women; young vs old; religious vs atheist; Christian/Jew vs Islam; and on and on and on.  The root cause of virtually all world problems today is simply the Global Elite, their study group system, their conglomerate monopolies; and their abuse of wealth and power.  The mistake we make as citizens is demanding solutions to problems, particularly government solutions, which always generates precisely what the Oligarchy desires – more problems and more societal stress,  rendering humans compliant and susceptible to suggestion.  The correct answer is not to seek solutions to symptoms – BUT STOP PLAYING THE GAME ALTOGETHER.  STOP TRANSMITTING NEGATIVE ENERGY WHICH JUST FEEDS  EVIL SPIRITUAL ENERGY THE DIET IT DESPERATELY CRAVES – and more importantly, can’t control humans without.  (There are entire books explaining what I just said.  Check out David Icke for example.)

All parties to all wars are funded by the Global Elite and their central banks.  Take away the issuance of currency from the Elite; take away their access to tax dollars and you will instantly end world wars.  Maybe not all squabbles between nations, but all major wars will vanish from earth.  The Elite thrive on business monopolies and use centrally controlled governments to protect them.  They also use tax dollars and public debt through insider contracts, tax breaks, etc. to assist in building them.  Regulatory agencies, darlings of the Left, have long since stopped protecting citizens.  The Left creates the draconian agencies, fights to establish intimidating power and then the Establishment Right swoops in and staffs the management through the revolving corporate door.  Like magic, the agency now enables the monopoly, even to the point of writing legislation and administrative rules to crush competition, create the allusion of civic minded public spirit and cooperation, eliminate their own tax bills and most importantly to sidestep any laws that may have slipped through the system.

What we now see failing across the globe and sadly, here in America is government sanctioned, protected  monopoly.  The Patient Protection and Unaffordable Care Act (Obamacide) is the best current example.  American consumers have been strangled by government enforced heath insurance monopolies within each state.  Now under PPACA, the monopolies are substantially strengthened and patient/doctor choices reduced through so-called exchanges.  More than three quarters of the States now offer only one, two or three choices between providers with premiums and deductibles through the roof.  Obamacare is massive intrusion of government into private markets and every politician and administrative bureaucrat who has lied about it should be indicted for consumer fraud.  Obamacare is no longer just a typical government safe haven for liars and cheats.  Obamacare is 1/8 of American private industry and those abusing and misrepresenting our health insurance ought suffer the same legal liabilities and penalties as private small business people do.

Career politicians and government sanctioned monopoly are eating the American Dream alive and we are casting our uninformed votes and fighting each other over nothing to enable the self destructive feast.  We can no longer sustain free markets or opportunity while continuing to vote for career criminals of the Marxist Left and Establishment Right, both offered up by pathological Oligarchy factions.  Nothing will ever change for the better, if we don’t change ourselves, become more aware; more discerning; more courageous and more willing to fight in a positive way for truth, freedom, generosity and love.

We don’t have free markets or capitalism.  America is a Fascist banana republic managed as an Administrative Dictatorship serving only the monopolies who control both elected and appointed national office.  Defund the RNC and DNC.  We don’t need term limits.  Get rid of incumbent career politicians who consider public elected office their job. Don’t vote for them.  Stop putting negative energy into what we don’t want.  This feeds the beast that’s eating us on a spiritual level.  Put positive energy only into those things we do want.

We live in a world increasingly referred to as a psyop; a pseudo reality created by various Elite owned media and technology sectors where very few things are what they appear to be or what we are told they are.  Unfortunately, foreign aid appears to be another of those make believe things.  The American people are a generous people who will actually give their lives for others in far away places, when they are convinced of the need to do so.  The world’s dynastic families, many members of whom are demonstrably pathological, take advantage of that generosity and mis-direct it for profit and political power.  And no I don’t abhor profit.  Free market capitalism is the most generous economic system ever devised, but the United States hasn’t seen capitalism or free markets since at least 1913.

America has a completely Fascist political/economic system (our Constitution is dead) where multinational corporate conglomerates monopolize industries via corrupted government regulation and taxation.  Under this parasitical system, hundreds of billions of dollars, trillions over time in supposed foreign aid through organizations such as USAID are nothing more than cover for transnational monopolies to access various selected countries to rape resources and labor.  Most USAID employees, good decent people, don’t know this.  They think they’re doing something good, and to a limited extent they are; but their real role is cover for monopolized blood money and unbounded monopolized earnings.  The enormous aid capital flows are co-opted, skimming 90% or more off the top to local despots, warlords, banks and the multinationals with barely a crumb or two dropping from the greed table down to the people.  In the center of this human disgrace, Elite families and their pawns wade neck deep in narco dollars, weapon’s dollars, oil dollars, de-population and on and on and on.

Foreign aid programs are often, if not usually, just despicable cover for installing despots and warlords friendly to western multi-nationals in small impoverished countries possessing valuable resources.  CIA, MI6, Mossad and NATO, like cockroaches, are always around to coerce leaders, facilitate another invasion,  civil war or whatever chaos is required to gain access, control and finally rape the wealth.  Debt is the primary tool, whereby the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank coordinate and stipulate strict provisions along with bank loans requiring contracts with various multinationals and aid groups for whom aid is very big, very lucrative business.  The American people, of course, are on the hook via D.C. for paying the big banks back on defaulted foreign loans, which 99%  are – defaulted that is.

“To give food aid to a country just because they are starving is a pretty weak reason”.  {1974 foreign policy statement by Henry Kissinger as U.S. Secretary of State}

In 1993, Bill Clinton announced on the bloody heels of his long-time friend, George H.W. Bush’s OPERATION RESTORE HOPE in oil rich Somalia; “the U.S. military is a force for good”.

Barack Hussein Obama in September of 2009 had his Administration embark on a National Security Strategy of TARGETED KILLING; declared the U.S. was above torture; and instead, simply kidnapped human political/economic obstacles, transferred them to more culturally brutal puppet regimes through a hypocritical policy of cowardice and abuse called rendition.

George W. Bush, in the aftermath of the Oligarchy’s 9/11 attack on America, in his turn coined and strategically married rhetoric such as  “axis of evil” regarding Iraq, Iran and North Korea; “compassionate conservatism”; and of course in his January, 2002 State of the Union Address characterized the “true character of the United States” as demonstrated by the “courage, compassion, strength and resolve” of the American people.  With Main Street on board the national security train, off we went with the misuse of our honored military to Afghanistan and Iraq where we re-vitalized world opium trade and the flow of narco-dollars and more vigilantly protected the financial interests of the Plutocratic BIG BANKING/BIG OIL/BIG WAR money machine.

To better comprehend how our  money supply is tied to foreign aid programs covering for massive third world debt, which equals huge bank profits and guaranteed transnational monopoly contracts in mining, weapons, drugs, farming, food supply or whatever, we will need to digress into the world of banking and central banking.  U.S. imperialism is veiled by sophisticated covers masquerading as compassionate help, which it rarely is, though the propaganda we call news never mention it and the average citizen has no idea at all what’s going on across the globe in the name of their good faith and credit.

Above we see five career criminals, without conscience, integrity or decency acting in tandem exclusively on behalf of the dynastic Oligarchy families whose political/financial interests they not-so-openly represent; regardless of human or environmental consequence.  On top of this moral tragedy in leadership, as though the West Wing of the White House isn’t despicable enough; we further support, unwittingly, this clever imperialism through 435 Members of the House and 100 U.S. Senators, nearly all of whom are fully complicit in appropriating and approving so-called humanitarian funding (read DEBT) (to knock down the doors of sovereign nations) and misuse our military in service of the world’s largest transnational monopolies, all operating above the law of any country.

WHY? HOW IS THIS ACCOMPLISHED?  How can it be so easy to co-opt decent political candidates, turning them into lazy, corrupt, lying, self-aggrandizing, dangerous politicians?

There is one answer to all three questions.  MONEY!
The BIG BANKS  own the politicians.  Period.  The banks control the money supply;  add in a bit of cushy insider trading, favorable press coverage, protected privilege and voila; the big banks own the legislation, regulation and discriminatory tax system – and we the people are reduced to feudal serfs, just as Jefferson predicted more than 200 years ago.

It’s important as American citizens and voters that we understand, every dollar spent by Washington D.C. elected and appointed political pawns is unconstitutionally borrowed from the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.  Not some of the dollars.  Not most of the dollars.  Every dollar.  All the dollars.  Nothing costing money can be proposed or enacted by any politician or bureaucrat in Washington without full and complete co-dependence on BIG BANKS, who in turn own the Federal Reserve System.  The overall scope is much worse than this in terms of banker control of society as the United States has gone beyond mere fiat money to debt money.  Every legal and illegal person residing in the United States today is nothing more than a free-ranging, indebted feudal serf.

To go a bit further down this economic rabbit hole, Mr. Joseph Plummer in his book entitled, “DISHONEST MONEY, Financing The Road to Ruin” states on page 129 (of my paperback edition):  “Every physical dollar, as well as every digital dollar, had to be borrowed into existence.  So long as our entire money supply is made up of this debt money, the bankers are guaranteed to earn interest on every single dollar, every moment it exists.  It also means our debt is inescapable.  To pay off every loan, we’d have to give back every dollar the bankers have created.  This would reduce our money supply to zero… it can’t be done.”

The Big Banks want politicians to spend money as all the money spent is created from thin air and pays interest 365/24/7.  No politician can buy patronage votes without cooperation by the Big Banks to create the money.  Political careers are built on ego, money and lies.  Via fractional reserve banking, which is beyond the scope of this discussion, just let it be understood that this money when spent goes through the commercial banking system where it is multiplied through the 10% or so of required reserves over and over again.  Via this fraudulent system a $100 billion Federal loan or loan to a foreign country quickly increases the money supply by as much as $900 billion – all from thin air and all collecting interest.  The amounts of money we’re briefly touching on here are truly incomprehensible to any decent person.

It’s important to further understand that controlling interest in the BIG BANKS is apparently held by just eight families, four of whom reside outside the U.S.  According to J. W. McCallister, an oil insider connected to House of Saud in his book The Grim Reaper, Saudi bankers informed him that 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank (the most powerful Fed bank) are:  the Goldman-Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London, the Warburgs of Hamburg, the Lazards of Paris, and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.

Per Mr. Dean Henderson’s heavily researched book entitled BIG OIL & THEIR BANKERS IN THE PERSIAN GULF, CPA Thomas D. Schauf corroborates Mr. McCallister’s claim, adding that ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches.  Schauf names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York.  Mr. Schauf further lists William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman as individuals owning huge shares of the Federal Reserve.  The Schiffs are Kuhn Loeb insiders and the Stillmans are with Citibank and married into the Rockefeller family.

Note that Mr. Eustace Mullins in his heavily researched book based largely on Congressional Records held in the Library of Congress, “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve”, also displays ownership charts connecting Fed ownership to member banks and in turn to these same listed families.

I bring all this up as a digression because these eight families in union with many other dynastic families also hold controlling interest in the BIG OIL Companies as well as most Fortune 500 companies.  Their interlocking directorships provide overwhelming control over world resources, events, politics, capital flows and of course, their very handy aid programs; the oft used key to access.  Our Congress and White House serve Oligarchy demands exclusively, though occasionally commit accidental acts of patriotism or enact good deeds for Main Street.

We need only look through the bloody repetitive history of dozens of countries to see the oft used Oligarchy play book and coordinated roles played by intelligence organizations, multinational conglomerates, aid groups, our politicians, misused military and finally, the banks – ultimate puppet masters wantonly planting seeds of destruction, pulling the strings of war, feeding the gluttonous grasp for wealth and power accumulation.  Entire nations of people such as Afghanistan, Argentina, Chile, Congo, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Panama, Somalia, South Vietnam, Venezuela, Yugoslavia and dozens more have been devastated without recourse by the world’s Established Oligarchy and their conscienceless pawns.

Unwittingly, the poorly informed American people are largely unaware of this horrible abuse perpetrated in their good name by the Elite and their thugs.

The pathological BANKING/OIL/WAR BUSINESS MODEL is frightening in its parasitic global scope.  It’s time American citizens wake up and demand their politicians stop serving this merciless agenda.  Not purchasing products or services from multi-national conglomerate monopolies, dumping the Federal Reserve Criminal Enterprise and NEVER voting for incumbent politicians would be a good start.
