California Wildfires! Governor Brown Blames Trump

Trump Derangement Syndrome: a disease that medical experts claim is associated with paranoia, acute hysteria, and the inability to tolerate policy differences.  I wonder if Obamacare will pay for it?  Apparently, Governor Jerry Brown has jumped on the bandwagon claiming that his non-action in preventing California wildfires is really all Trump’s fault because Trump changed the climate. 

In 2017, over 9,000 fires burned 2.1 million acres, 43 people were killed, the cost was $13 billion, and 11,000 homes were destroyed.  So what did Governor Brown Do?

If Governor Brown was truly of the mind that climate change is causing extensive fires in California, knowing that California experiences thousands of fires each and every year, what exactly has he done to mitigate those occurrences?   Because it would seem that his methodology is to:   a.  blame Trump, and b.  ask for money.

“Forest thinning and prescribed burns — both of which aim to eliminate fire fuel before the fire occurs”  are the best method for prevention according to Mark Cochrane, a senior scientist at the Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence at South Dakota State University.

Colorado and Oregon both have in place very specific and comprehensive strategies for mitigating against fires occurring as well as response efforts.  The vast majority of fires are ‘human caused’, either accidentally or arson.   Rapid response in these instances is essential.  That requires boots on the ground.  California has 885 fire stations.  Only 25% of California firefighters are ‘career’, nearly 60% are volunteer or mostly volunteer.   Despite the rabid extent of fires in California each year, they rely predominantly on volunteers and out of state assistance!  When all is said and done, the cost is not picked up by the state, but by Federal taxpayers.

Droughts in California have occurred throughout history, they are a continuum that dates back centuries, and despite a doubling of population since 1979, not one new large-scale water project has been built!  Hollywood?  Where is you outrage?  Where are your concerts to raise money?  Where are your donations?

“Because much of California’s water network relies on a system of pumps to move water from north to south, large volumes of water are often lost to the Pacific Ocean during winter storms when river flow exceeds the capacity of the pumps. This is further complicated by environmental rules which restrict pumping during certain months of the year, to protect migrating fish. In water year 2015, 9,400,000 acre feet (11.6 km3) of water flowed through the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, but only 1,900,000 acre feet (2.3 km3) were recovered into water distribution systems.

The state’s reservoirs have insufficient capacity to balance the water supply between wet and dry years.”

It would appear that neither Governor Brown or the states spokesperson for Fire Protection are aware of the above facts which is rather frightening given they are in charge of mitigation as a result of fires.

The latest spat between Brown and Trump was over the available water to fight the fires. Oddly, despite California’s ongoing battle with droughts, water rationing, and lacking capacity reservoirs, both Governor Brown and Briana Sacks, a spokesperson for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, claim there is ‘plenty of water’ citing Clear Lake.

Clear Lake rights are owned by Yolo County and are used for agriculture, local water companies and recreational use.  In 2014, it recorded one of its lowest levels of water after severe droughts at -.31 Ramsey.  It is heavily contaminated with high levels of Mercury and thus warnings are issued with respect to eating some of the fish.

But water rights have become the core issue for multiple lawsuits as the state of California began to declare a sort of eminent domain over county rights in 2015.  The state was attempting to curtail rights that had been on the books for a hundred years due to mounting drought problems so as to divert for state purposes rather than county or agriculture purposes.  Odd that Brown and Briana were not aware of this…

Therefore, when Brown and Briana Sacks cited Clear Lake as proof positive that California has plenty of water, their lack of knowledge was rather astounding.   The last drought period in California lasted from 2012 through 2017.

The ultimate point that both Brown and Briana seem to be missing is the fact that California wildfires are NOT mitigated, nothing has been done to prevent them, and nothing has been done to ramp up fighting the fires before they get out of control.  Nothing has been done to secure more career firefighters.  Nothing.  By continuing to do nothing, California will continue to burn.  By not providing adequate reservoirs for the population and it’s needs, California will continue to be plagued by substantial periods of severe drought resulting in depleted water sources to extinguish fires.  Pretending that the entire problem is Trump – is truly a deranged mentality. Ultimately it shows gross negligence and mismanagement… on the part of Governor Brown and his Departments.

The current Mendocino fire is the largest in history approaching 300,000 acres and just 30% contained.

FACEBOOK: “Community Standards” Don’t Apply to Dark Web

With little fanfare or mainstream media discussion, Facebook has closed its doors to third party blogging which is coincidentally, mostly conservative.   As of August 1st, this new rule quietly went into effect.  Of course it does not apply to paid content which now dominates the newsfeed and has absolutely nothing to do with any user’s particular preferences.    However, even there, a precedent was established with the decision to permanently ban Alex Jones and specific pages from Infowars, therein the censorship of US MSM is officially initiated.

While smaller bloggers scramble to try and adjust to the rulings, the attacks will likely rise as Facebook’s “Community Standards” rules loosely define terms of ‘Violence and Criminal’, Safety, and ‘Objectionable Content’.   These terms are created by and monitored by Facebook and are not necessarily a legal demonstration of conduct.   Therefore, Facebook has nominated itself as the censorship police – which would mimic Communism.

While our current MSM is dedicated to the meme that Censorship is Trump commenting on his view of specific media cites, true censorship is being invoked in order to silence what is deemed not to be aligned with the approved propaganda.   We routinely are subjected to a single narrative that is mass produced throughout hundreds of stations across the US.     It is the same methodology used in China, former communist Poland, Russia and Romania.

Still, amidst the scandal of information hawking and sharing Facebook has apparently been busily coercing US banks to share information on their customers including credit card transactions, bank account balances, and shopping habits so that it can ‘partner’ with banks in offering their services… although insiders are stating that Facebook actually intends to become a competitor.

According to a law enacted in 1999, the FDIC offers an ‘opt out’ clause in which any customer can refuse to allow their information to be shared.  However, the ‘opt out’ must be instituted by the customer, it is NOT automatic.   In order to opt out, a customer must read their banks policy and sign a clause that specifies what sharing is allowed and what is not.

India accounts for the largest share of Facebook users, with the US coming in 2nd, Brazil 3rd and Indonesia 4th.  Bothe Brazil and Indonesia are slated to become Facebook’s biggest sources of advertising fueling the growth of their market share.  And while Facebook made the very public announcement that it had removed 32 fake accounts that were clearly pro-Russia, CNN estimates there are over 82 million fake accounts…  Obviously the word didn’t make it to Zuckerberg’s security personnel.

Africa is a target market, but in order to spark the climb, Facebook needs more mobile phones to be distributed among the population.  No problem. In Africa, smartphones average less than $50 – compared with the US price tags of $600 to $900.

Although Zuckerberg is supposedly wallowing in waves of lawsuits and lacking credibility, obviously Facebook is continuing to ramp up and expand – albeit not so much in the US as the target markets where billions of additional users still languish, and potential advertisers are lining up with cash.

If that isn’t enough…, in 2014, Facebook set up a means for people to access Facebook through the Dark Web via Tor, a site that promotes child pornography and the sex trade.  Of course, much of the content on Tor is illegal, and given the alliance, it traverses some very interesting ideals and ethics.   As of 2016, Facebook claimed it had over a million users through the Dark Web.  Apparently, because of Facebook’s international base, and the fact that different countries have different regulations with respect to Tor’s illegal activities, Zuckerberg feels entitled to extend even greater access giving advice on Facebook for how to enter the Dark Web securely, without being caught by authorities…

They even advertise how government login credentials can be bought on the dark web – by anyone…  DNC, Clinton, anyone.  How convenient that Facebook is promoting this at the height of the Russia hacking investigation.

Odd, that none of this Dark Web content is subject to the scrutiny of Facebook’s extensive rules ie, “Community Standards” which just dumped Infowars and thousands of smalltime bloggers…

Washington Post Gives Blueprint For Fake News

An Opinion Writer for the Washington Post who bills himself as having a ‘Liberal Slant’, is offering his strategy for how to squelch the good news about the Trump Economy, and instead focus on negatives in the media so as to target the ‘non-college educated whites’ and serve them a hefty portion of fake news.   This writer advocates for the media to propagandize further by inundating these ‘weak willed po’r whites’ with alternative news that demonizes Trump policies and even blames him for the failed Obamacare! 

According to this man, the media will instead focus their attention on drilling forward with the Russia plot and the immigration skew, which was actually instituted in 2003 and escalated dramatically in 2014 under Obama…  But the MSM will somehow fail to remember those ‘facts’ and fly off with Trump attacks – while whining about retribution and deny any wrong doing – while claiming that ‘people will get hurt’ because of Trump, while sadly shaking their heads at all the dumb idiots that support Trump…

It would be interesting should all the ‘weak, dumb, non-educated whites’ read this Liberal perception of who they are and how the Democrats anticipate swaying their votes…I wonder if they would feel respected?  Represented? Honored?

I imagine, quite the contrary, they would feel conned.

Because unfortunately, that is the Media that righteously defends itself, fact checks itself, and polls itself.  And ultimately reports – on itself.

All within the screams of UN-BIASED.

Another point of contention that these readers want to propagandize is that under Trump, real wages declined .02%…   In fact, between 2015 and 2017, real wages tanked, monthly real median household income – tanked, and health insurance premiums will have doubled during Obama’s Legacy with some states having seen annual rate increases over 100% and a choice of ‘one insurer’.

So now our esteemed Liberalcrats have revealed their strategy which is akin to giving ISIS your military blueprint…  Not too savvy.   And therein lies the fallacy in their entire agenda which is to create false reports, denigrate the people you want to vote for you, and threaten to kill them if they don’t.

This is why they lost. 

Weather Manipulation: An Opioid Epidemic

In 1976, the UN created a treaty within which 78 countries agreed not to participate in the use of weather modification for hostile or military engagements which would have “widespread, long-lasting, or severe effects as the means of destruction, damage or injury to any other party state”.   States that are NOT party to the agreement would thus be susceptible to whatever military strikes and destruction party states deem necessary.

The parties that did not sign this agreement or signed but failed to ratify, include:  France, Mexico, Croatia, Portugal, Lebanon, Turkey, Bolivia, Holy See, Iceland, Iraq, Liberia, Luxembourg, Morocco, Syria, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Guyana, Thailand, Cambodia, Iran, Haiti, Dominican republic, Bosnia, Montenegro, Myanmar, Laos, Nepal, and ‘most’ of Africa.

What the treaty acknowledged was the fact that weather modification was in existence, had been for some time, and as a result of its scientific breakthroughs, required ‘management’.  The Treaty states that the agreement against hostile use shall not ‘hinder’ the continued use of ‘environmental modification techniques’.

In addition the wording could be legally construed to allow for the use with debates over what constituted; 1.  Widespread, 2.  Long-lasting, and 3.  Severe.

Today, modification is referred to as ‘geoengineering’ and refers to solar radiation management (SRM) and global climate engineering.  Which came first – the chicken or the egg?  In the Geoengineering mantra, it is now unclear if global warming/climate change is a result of natural causes, man causes, or geoengineering manipulation.  Given that the tests have been ongoing for over 70 years, the trial and error factor is not unlike the nuclear tests of the 1950’s.  Let’s wait and see what happens when we nuke our military personnel…  My father was a victim.

Such is the ‘science of weather manipulation’.

Despite denying it existed, the 1976 UN document brings an obvious truth to what was termed a conspiracy theory for decades.  Given that we know that truth is in short supply within these various arenas, it would not be out of the ordinary to  assume that the evolution of weather modification has progressed most infinitely and is in fact utilized quite readily for peaceful purposes, and for management of nations that we feel need to be punished.   Albeit, in a way that might not be construed as ‘long-lasting’ – which has no legal definition.  Therefore, the punishment might be temporal, flooding that will subside, or a heat wave that makes life uncomfortable, except that we are now finding that even the most temporal change has cumulative and domino effects.  

But if no one admits it, if no one party states that they are engaging, the media will continue to claim it is all man-made and we simply need to reduce our ‘carbon footprint’, our gas consumption, our aerosol use, our…

One of the methods of achieving SRM is to inject billions of particles of sulfer dioxide into the stratosphere in order to deflect sunlight and send it back out toward the sun.  It is believed that this technique would cause widespread and localized droughts in either Africa or South America.  This particular methodology is currently inherently funded by Bill Gates and Harvard – the same Harvard and Bill Gates that advocate for massive de- population.

Coincidence?

Much of the initiative is defined as “Experiments” which are conducted in our atmosphere as a hit and miss, maybe, theory that we need to act on in order to determine if it works – and if it doesn’t then we have – consequences.  Like Global Warming and Chaotic Weather Patterns.

Apparently, as a result of these manipulations, scientists warn that stopping the manipulation is like a heroin addict going cold turkey, the likely reaction of the atmosphere would be catastrophic as it went into convulsions and withdrawal.

The problem is there is no corresponding methodone fix!

“If geoengineering were halted all at once, there would be rapid temperature and precipitation increases at 5–10 times the rates from gradual global warming.”x This means that stopping SAI once it had started could be more dangerous than starting it in the first place. Ozone depletion is another important side effect of SAI.

Furthermore, once SRM is deployed, sudden interruption would cause a termination effect, raising temperatures rapidly, creating a situation worse than it was before its deployment. Therefore, SRM will create dependency and captive markets.”

In other words, we created a monster akin to ISIS.  We can’t terminate what was started decades ago because it would send our environment into a cataclysmic state of chaos, so we are stuck.  It is liking weaning off opioids.

Weather Manipulation is an addiction.  So while the scientists that ‘experimented’ us to this place desperately try and claim that it is all man-made and a carbon footprint, the reality is that this same science is actually most likely the base cause of the chaotic eclipse that has morphed into a nanospeed decay of planet earth.

How the particles are injected is the source of argument and conspiracies, instead of the fact that they are injected.   And so, the truth is mushed into a legal advertising morph or play on words.  But the truly sad reality is the fact that we are now addicted to a scientific shitakestorm that began as an ‘experiment’.

There are those who claim that aluminum is one of the stratosphere ingredients in the nanoparticle experiment.

What does aluminum do to our body?
Aluminum is linked to blood disorders, such as hemolysis, leukocytosis and porphyria, as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.  In addition, exposure to this unwanted substance can cause an increase in cavities, as it interferes with bone calcification and competes with fluoride.   Aluminum exposure causes brain oxidation and inflammation – while increasing amounts of the beta-amyloid proteins linked with Alzheimer’s disease aluminum exposure causes brain oxidation and inflammation – while increasing amounts of the beta-amyloid proteins linked with Alzheimer’s disease.

What you CAN DO:  Eat Cilantro by the fresh bunch, crave anti-oxidants, turmeric, purified water, sea salt, avoid processed foods, high doses of vitamin C, garlic and onion. 

So many of us opt to avoid all the vaccines which are rich in aluminum, but if our atmosphere is deluged, it becomes even more of a dominant agenda…

FYI: Don’t forget if they are actively injecting trillions of particle into our atmosphere that means our rain water, our ponds – are the highest concentrate.  Sorry.  Also realize that this means that Trump can not simply alter this course given that the proposed reaction would be severe withdrawals far worse than the current weather chaos we experience today…

Facebook Deletes Russian Trolls! hee-hee-hee…

So Facebook removed 32 accounts that the media claims were Russian BOTS aimed at disrupting mid-term elections! Oh My Gosh!  They used such names as;  Aztlan Warriors and Black Elevation and Mindful Being and Resisters!

So I looked them up.

Aztlan has a website, and is still active on Twitter and UTube.  Their accounts identify them as Chicanos, they have tweeted a grand total of 23 times since 2016, most of which are ‘retweets’, anti-religious, pro-Palestine, and include one follower – a personal injury attorney that fights ICE.

Black Elevation – which is still on Facebook, hmmm, promotes Black Power, white = oppression, and anti-Bible.

Resisters – apparently attempted to create a protest rally in which they were to Unite Against the Right!  They are billed as feminists against Fascism.

Very Covert, Very Sophisticated – are the media gasps…

So how could these Facebook accounts be linked to Russia?  Well, actually there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever. None.  In fact, Facebook has announced that there is no VPN trail, no traceable IP address, and third parties purchased the ads.  Why would they be considered a Russia attempt to disrupt mid-terms if they are all obviously pro-Socialist and Liberal agenda’s?

Apparently, no one is doing even the most superficial of homework…

Virginia Democrat, Senator Mark Warner, is one such case given he has come out vocally against the Russian interference in our election – except, er, it would appear these accounts are pro-Democrat.  Oops.

Still, Fox News, NYT, Wapo, CNN and just about everyone are all jumping on the band wagon in desperation claiming this is a Russian attempt to influence the elections – apparently in favor of the Democrats?  Only, they are calling it ‘discord’ and ‘divisive’ as opposed to pro-Trump.   In fact, despite having absolutely no evidence of who, where, what, created these accounts, the Russia Connection seems to be the highlight!

“Undermining American Democracy”!   “Russian Style Influence”!  “Vivid Evidence that Russia in fact infiltrated the 2016 Election”!

If it wasn’t so comical, it might be critical, but contrived it most certainly is, most definitely convoluted, with still wet markings of a con, albeit a careless, crass, conniving, confidence trick – one.

Lining up, they demand/want Trump and the White House to respond to the allegations?   Why?  Because if they say Russian 500 hundred times, then it must be true. In essence they are merely in desperation mode trying to show that Russia didn’t aid Trump, but sought to instill discord, er, yeah, that’s the new and improved strategy.

If the whole things sounds fishy, it’s most likely because it is fishy.   It’s just a bit too obvious.

Germany: FREE Child Care Will Cost 3 Billion Euro

Germany has a daycare problem, it has been made hugely worse by the importation of millions of immigrants who by law may use the municipal daycare facilities, for free given they have no income.   However, there are simply nowhere near enough facilities to accommodate the German children, much less the multitudes of added immigrants.   Merkel’s solution?  Make it all free, then everyone will be guaranteed a spot! Yeah!  Sounds good for the media!   So what’s the problem?  There are NO SPOTS!   Stories abound of German workers who take advantage of the extended leave made available by law, put their children on a waiting list, only to find there still is no available slot after their 14 months leave has run out.

Making daycare free will only exasperate the problem!   Subsidies already cover a hefty percentage of the costs at roughly 225 euros per month. Until recently, this subsidy was provided to parents that chose to keep their children home, out of daycare, but this law was over-turned when a group of activists protested that it encouraged moms to stay at home – a taboo in Germany.

Because in Germany, it is much more preferable to have the state bring up your children for you… And they can’t understand why their birth rate is the lowest in all of Europe.  Odd.

Refugees and immigrants are given priority for daycare slots because the government feels this is the only way to assure the children will learn German…   Thus, Germans are relegated to hiring nannies and au-pairs at a significantly higher cost.

Essentially, when Merkel announced free daycare for everyone, she was really addressing all the immigrants who have yet to take advantage of the welfare benefit.   The potential domino effect of these policies is Germans will lose their employment because they can’t find daycare, can’t find an au pair or nanny, or can’t afford the private costs.

In 2011, Merkel announced that all children over three have the ‘legal right’ to daycare.   In 2013, all children over the age of 12 months were granted this ‘legal right’.  But the terminology is useless if there isn’t an available facility.   In fact, it was estimated that in order to accommodate this right by 2013, Germany would have needed to ADD 140,000 new facilities!  Never made it even close, the infrastructure was not available and the cost topped well over $3 billion.

The solution?

In 2017, a judge determined that parents who are unable to find a government sponsored facility may sue the government for lost wages!   Merkel?

While state sponsored German media outlets applaud the low cost grand scheme of daycare in Germany, the reality is starkly different:

  1. shortage of workers, in Germany they are called ‘childminders’ for family care, means importing them from other countries…
  2. shortage of facilities meant that many communities simply used PODS, or warehouses without any play areas, small spaces, crowded spaces, and inadequate supplies.
  3. parents have taken to bribing managers given the wait list can be exorbitantly long, 5 or more years in more urban areas like Munich and Heidelberg.
  4. a study commissioned by the Federal Families Ministry of Germany, found that only 3% of the facilities were considered of ‘good’ quality.  None apparently made it higher.
  5. there is no standard curriculum and politicians don’t want to require one given this could increase already burgeoning costs.

The cost to the government in providing subsidies and promoting families has been running  $270 billion per year.   Part of the reasoning for the initiative was a result of the ever declining birth rate – which was the major reasoning behind bringing in the immigrants.  Germany needs children and immigrants to fill the cost of supporting an ever aging population, because the German birth rate continues to decline.  So the government decided that the reason adults in Germany were not procreating was because they wanted more state sponsored welfare programs to raise their children for them.

What will Merkel’s new freebie contribute?

Higher taxes given Germany is already grappling with the requirement that it boost it’s military spending to be in compliance with EU regulations, nothing is “Free”.  Higher childcare costs as demand can not match availability, and expatriation as couples search to fill their needs.

Cost of Child Care in Germany:

State run facility – $400 Euro per month average

Private facility – $500 to $900 per month average

Au Pair – 4 weeks paid vacation, 30 hour work week, sick days, public holidays, paid travel, secure room, board and a monthly stipend starting at roughly 450 euros.

Nanny – typically charge 2,000 to 2,500 Euro a month

Trump vs The Media Cabal…

German media would have us believe that Russia is ramping up it’s armaments because of a riff between “the West and Russia”.   Oddly, they seem to have forgotten the EU Commission, the UN, Germany, the UK, France, Sweden, The Netherlands and a host of countries that have all radically attacked, demonized and sanctioned Russia based on circumstantial, unproven, and scanty evidentiary matter.  Including the supposed ‘annexation of Crtimea’…oh brother – look up UK annexations…

Why?

Because it perpetuates a common media meme in which a World War has been staged at the behest of the world Cabal, and fortunately tabled as the Swamp is retrofit with truth. Tch.  Tch.

Still, Merkel’s media is desperate to undermine and create what Trump has been attempting to squelch and denounce in the agenda of fake news.

Of  course this also aligns in the wake of the New York times publisher, A. G. Sulzberger, denouncing Trump as divisive and dangerous. Why?   Because he is calling out the scourge and the scourge are whining, ‘no fair’!   It should be noted that Sulzberger’s credentials are parallel to ‘Trust Fund Baby’ in that he worked as intern for The Providence Journal (he is not considered a ‘notable contributor), then later wrote a few articles for the Oregonian (which aligned with Bill Clinton and has since become known as a ‘tabloid’), before writing for the New York Times briefly which his father published…  Um, that’s it folks.   That is his sum total of experience that apparently entitles him to denounce the President of The United States.

An entitled TFB.

He is no more worthy than his money – and thus in line with Hollywooders who seem to feel they are the true MSM of the world.

The German media goes on to reiterate how the relationship between the West and Russia is at an all time low not seen since the Cold War.   Of course, this low occurred during and as a consequence of the Obama Administration, a notation conveniently not mentioned or cited.   It also occurred at the behest of Merkel.  Also, conveniently, not noted.

In fact, when Obama and Merkel threw down the sanctions they thought would cripple Russia, Putin used the demonization to restructure the economy and the military so as to rise above and confront their battle.  Much to their chagrin, he won.   And now, the media would have us believe this win, is due to the Trump effect. Hmmm.

With more and more weight being given to Trump, his tweets, his abrasive attitude in defense of the US, it would seem that the MSM, albeit the New York Times and the Deutsch Weil, are still lagging considerably in supporting their shareholders… and instead are intent on supporting their subversive agenda.   Even as Soros denounces both Hillary and Obama – as abject disappointments!

So while the Cabal is disassociating itself with the failures of recent history, the media is lagging.  Could they be the next demon the Cabal destroys?

What if, the Cabal turned on itself?  What if, they turned on the very media they have supported for years?   What if, the MSM becomes the next victim of themselves?

How else could Soros rewrite history?

It is reminiscent of recent history in which Soros adamantly demanded that Merkel allow an indiscriminate number of migrants to come to Germany – at least one million, he asserted in interviews.  Later, when the migrant policy turned into chaos, Soros stated that Merkel had ruined Germany as a direct result of her stance on immigration.

It would follow that as the chaos gains heat, Soros will denounce the MSM and take a decidedly negative stance against them creating even greater divisiveness.   A chess match!

And while everyone is focused on protecting the King, it is the Queen who has the most power!

In that sense, the NYT, CNN, the Washington Post, DW, The BBC, NBC, CBS, etc…, should all be wary that the Cabal will turn on a dime, and demonize the very sources that supported their causes.   There is no honor among thieves…

There is no loyalty.  And as we have seen, this has torched the sex industry of Hollywood, and will only grow exponentially.

The Trump naysayers are mostly self absorbed.  They typically feel obliged to inform Trump what he should and should not do, how he should and should not act, how he should and should not speak, how he should and should not – be.   That is the best way to determine if the person speaking is really a Pro- or anti Swamp…   Shhhhh.

Facebook: Zuckerberg Selling Off!

Facebook shares have been crashing… and Zuckerberg has lost $15-$16 billion… that is, according to the MSM.   But a quick look at insider trading reveals that in the last month he has divested roughly 100,000 more shares than he was granted – daily.   The price per share that Zuckerberg cashed in at – $209, $208 and $207.  Netting him roughly $20,800,000 per day – for 25 days or $520 million thru July 25th.  In addition, another 140,000 shares were granted and sold representing his daily ‘salary’ (he takes no actual salary) amounting to $29,120,000 for 25 days in July = $728 million.  That would mean his monthly pay for 25 days in July was roughly $1,248,000,000.   So is he really ‘losing billions’?  

He still holds roughly 14.3 million shares of Facebook… currently trading at $175 per share, the net value to him would be over $2 billion not including his daily acquisition of 142,500 shares.  And then, of course, is the Zuckerberg Foundation which sits on piles of money and does absolutely – nothing.

So, the news that poor Zuckerberg is losing his shirt is a bit short-sighted at best, and rather misleading by truth.  But it does sound good.  The truth is he has been divesting his shares for some time and pocketing the cash – most likely in an offshore trust.

In 2011, Zuckerberg owned 24% of Facebook shares.   At the time there were 2.74 billion outstanding shares.  That would mean that at that time Zuckerberg owned over 657 million shares.  How is that possible given today he owns a mere 14 million?  Unless the plan has been in the making for quite some time…

In another twist, in 2011, a Russian investment firm, Digital Sky Technologies, owned 10% of the shares.    DST was founded by an Israeli Russian, Yuri Milner, who also has stakes in Twitter, Google, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Airbnb, Spotify and Alibaba.  Today, Alibaba shares are ranked within the top 6 of most ‘shorted shares’.

Coincidence?

Twitter shares are also being pounded and the MSM is asking if this is the end of social media…  Of course there is always a back answer, a reason behind the curtain being manipulated by the Wizard of Oz!

Pundits who do little to no research are claiming that Twitter and Facebook’s financial results were ‘disappointing’.  But Twitter has been operating at a significant Net Loss for well over five years while each year that loss is lower than the previous year.   According to the Shareholder Report released for the second quarter of 2018, their year over year revenue increased 27% while expenses increased only 3% and total users were up 11%.

So what’s the beef?  Hardly disappointing news.

Facebook’s first quarter earnings report for 2018 revealed a 50% year over year increase in revenues, and a 63% increase in Net Income, with a 13% increase in active users.

Hardly the report of a dying company!

But apparently, that is what the MSM would have us believe. Why?   Because the purpose is to dissolve interest in a platform that is utilized to a wide extent by conservative bloggers.  Because demonizing these social media giants and inundating them in lawsuits will ultimately fray the conservative voice and give further rise to a Liberal monopoly.  Because Hillary is convinced that these platforms caused her to lose.

But if Zuckerberg has already divested most of his shares, is he really complicit in the tanking of Facebook?   Is he a part of the inner circle?   And are the allegations and lawsuits all a part of the sham to devour and censor the platform utilized by the voices of America?

Is Zuckerberg aiding in the conservative media censorship by destroying his own company?  If in fact he initially owned over 657 million shares and today that number is 14 million, wouldn’t that indicate a long term plan in the making whereby his profit was secured?

In the end, Zuckerberg is no poker player, his face tells the story, and his share holdings back up the agenda…  Tch. Tch.  The wolves are everywhere.

Migrant Children – Don’t Want To Go Home!

Once again the perspective of the German government media icon, Deutsche Weil, seems somewhat perplexing as they attempt to provide a psychological analysis of migrant children being reunited with parents on the US border.  Apparently, the problem is the fact that many children aren’t too keen about the reunion, and DW would have us believe it is because they have been traumatized as a result of the separation.

Really?

Children don’t want to hug their mothers and fathers, they don’t smile or run and jump into their arms with happiness and glee. Instead they are sullen, distant, and scowling…  Odd.  Or maybe not so odd.

According to Dr. Elizabeth Barnert of UCLA, she warns that children will be angry, feel abandoned, and have life long health problems as a direct result of the US migrant separation policy.  So why isn’t this the case when veterans are deployed overseas and can be away from their children for a year or even more?  Why is it that time and again the veterans are greeted by their children with huge hugs and tears and kisses?   What could possibly be different?

Could it be because their fathers were beating them?  Could it be because they were abused?   Could it be because the sexual abuse they have endured in their homes has left a lifetime of scars?   Could it be because their life in the shelters was actually much more wholesome than the life they will return to?

Years ago when I lived in California, I came to know an immigrant family from Mexico.   Each year they legally submitted an application and paid the fee to have one of their children come to the US.   One child per year.   I remember Anna telling me how hard it was because all the children were being sexually abused by their uncle.  And yet, there was nothing they could do.   It was tortuous.

Could it be that these sad immigrant children reunited with their parents are not showing joy because this is the life we are returning them to at the behest of our outraged Hollywooders and politicians?

DW also cites Dr. Shonkoff who specializes in researching child development from a scientific viewpoint at Harvard.   Oddly, he too is making an analysis without actually interviewing any of the migrant children.   In fact, the basis of his theory could be more impactful in analyzing the development of children who are raised by nannies, day cares and public schools systems instead of by their parents.   The feelings of abandonment and neglect that institutionalizing children creates.  Or perhaps his research could apply to the roughly 150,000 orphans in the US…  But instead, somehow the millions are neglected in order to make a a statement about a few hundred.  Why?

So why would these two esteemed doctors make subjective statements regarding the psychological and health implications about a few immigrant children without conducting any interviews, specific research, or analysis of the life they are returning to? Why would they condemn the possible value that the shelter offered, as a ‘shelter’ from harm?

The cued media response is ‘irreparable harm, brain damage, obesity, and even – cancer!!  WOW!   What about the hundreds of thousands of children that are sent to the US unaccompanied – by their parents?  Hush!

The misplaced outrage is obtusely – misplaced.

Hundreds of migrant children will be traumatized, adversely affected, and Trump is the ultimate target of blame…  But what about the 2.7 million children who have a parent in prison?   Are they victims of brain damage and cancer?  How about the ‘ever increasing’ number of children in foster care now numbering roughly 450,000!   Where is the media outrage?  Where is Hollywood?

In 2008, a NY judge broke with tradition and granted asylum to three Honduran children who were being sexually abused by their relatives in Honduras.  Did any of these esteemed doctors who gave their name to the media as a reference against Trump’s policy research what these children were being sent back to?   Or maybe that reality didn’t fit the anti agenda…

Could it be that these ‘dogooders’ are oblivious to the abuse?   I doubt it.

In 2009, a report was issued that highlighted the fact that child sex abuse is at epidemic levels in Honduras and that statistics place it as one of the highest in the world!  Still it is below El Salvador…  Oh that’s right, many of the migrant children we are sending back home come from El Salvador too.

In 2006, UNICEF issued a scathing report in which it claimed that 40 million children younger than 15 were victims of violence, abuse and neglect in Latin America and the Caribbean alone!   And most of the violence takes place in the HOME.

HUSH.

Maybe that’s why these children aren’t looking too happy when they are reunited with their fathers, uncles and family…  This is what they are returning to as a result of the media, the outraged Liberals, and the Hollywood elite who throw pennies on the problem all the while derailing Trump.   Where are the politicians now who sought to see their name in print, the face plastered on papers as a guardian for youth?   Because it would appear by all accounts that what has been accomplished is to return these children to a living hell.

Are they protecting the children – or are they putting them to – a living death?  Were the Shelters the only safety they have ever known…

EU Commission: Gluttonous Spending

The EU Commission is embarking on a massive mission of garnering sought after revenue by suing major US companies including; Google, Amazon, Starbucks, Qualcomm and Apple. The woman behind the coup is Denmark’s, Margreth Vestager, a Socialist Liberal.   Vestager was the primary instigator in leveling a fine on Cyprus Airlines that ultimately resulted in their going bankrupt and the loss of 550 jobs.  By all accounts, she is – brutal.

The Google fine is heavy, weighing in at an astounding $5.1 billion as well as a demand that they change their business model to allow greater competition in the European market.  Whether this affects the share price is debatable, but the fact that the EU is specifically targeting US firms is of more interest as the Commission revenues have floundered and an appeal for funds is most likely the driving force, especially when BREXIT is finalized and 14 billion euro’s result in a significant shortfall.

The Trade War Behind The Trade War

This is not the first time the EU Commission has made headlines and enemies in trade disputes. IN 2004 Microsoft was ordered to pay $497 million which was the largest fine to date.  In 2006, they again attacked Microsoft and imposed an additional $448 million for competition violations.   And again in 2009 imposed $1.44 billion in fines.  And again in 2013, 561 million Euros.  In 2009, the EU Commission fined Intel $1.45 billion.

It would seem that the EU Commission is pocketing quite a bit of revenue from fines which, according to Article 83 of the EU Commission Protocol, are not reported as revenue but instead are held in a ‘special fund’ portfolio of high quality sovereign bonds with no designated purpose. 

In 2014, the Commission reported that of 70 separate fines imposed on various businesses, they collected $2.2 billion in ‘funds’.   In 2016, the EU Commission expenditures topped 136.4 billion Euros with roughly 8 billion going toward ‘Administration’.  Of course, it is important to note that administration is not an all inclusive of salaries and wages given that each sub-section absorbs costs that are ‘allocated’ to the specific project.   The two largest projects are;  Sustainable Growth Natural Resources, and Smart and Inclusive Growth which combined absorb over 90% of expenditures.

What the heck?

Smart and Inclusive Growth is supposedly targeting infrastructure and jobs in the least developed EU countries.   Sustainable Growth targets increased agriculture productivity.

In 2013, an external audit revealed that £109 billion out of a total of £117 billion spent by the EU in 2013 was “affected by material error”.  In fact, the audits for the previous 19 years all revealed similar deficits.  At the same time, the Commission was demanding additional sums from the UK in the amount of 1.7 billion creating  a havoc of hypocrisy and distrust.

The newly released budget for the Commission is slated at 1.14 trillion Euro.  The largest expenditure is applied to ‘foreign aid’ for countries wishing to become EU members – 123 billion Euros.

Given such an astronomical budget, what exactly has the EU Commission accomplished over it’s lifetime?

1)  It ratified the Paris Climate Accord

2)  It initiated the phasing out of export subsidies to allow poorer countries the opportunity to compete in agriculture

3)  It banished the death penalty

4)  It created a single market

5)  It ‘theoretically created open borders that meant passports were not necessary – although in reality due to the EU’s refuge and immigrant abject failures this open border policy is no longer being followed.

But most of the funding supports Research and studies that tackle various concerns including a project that determined cargo ships use less fuel than lorries, a mobile app to monitor weight loss, a publication of our galaxy, the design of an electric car for aging people, continuing research to expand renewable energy supply which now accounts for 5% of all energy output, and a project in which busses were subjected to a three year trial to determine if hydrogen fuel is a viable alternative…

While these projects all have relevance, it would seem the cost of funding the commission is rather extraordinary in comparison to the actual economic benefits achieved.

BY contrast, it would appear the US does not reciprocate in embarking in lawsuits against EU businesses that violate trade competition.
