Is America Growing… or Declining Like Rome?

Is America growing or decling like Rome?

41BC, after the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Roman empire went through explosive growth. Why?

Caesar’s hand-picked successor was his nephew, Octavian. As most school children learn, Octavian attacked the renegade general Marc Antony, main squeeze of Cleopatra, took control of northern Africa and expanded his empire. But why was Egypt so important?

Octavian was named Augustus in 37BC,

but in that year, Rome had already sent 100 ships to the Red Sea. The Red Sea lanes gave the Romans a shortcut to the Arabian sea, Indian ocean and the Silk Road.

Silk wasn’t the only thing Rome imported from Asia,

though it was probably the most important. They also imported chemicals, (fragrances, embalming fluids, etc.) spices, ivory but most critical to Rome’s armies, steel.

For something to be important as an import, it must be either not available or expensive in the importer’s country, and this was especially true of silk and steel. To be sure, the Romans had silk, but to the Chinese, silk was the basis of much of their economy. After 2,000 years of minute advancements, they had refined the manufacturing process to the point where hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Chinese laborers were cranking out thousands of tons per year of extremely high-quality fabric that no one else in the world could replicate.

In steel, the process was even more acute. 

Roman steel was largely wrought iron, which is a low carbon form, molded into shape by heating and beating. Its low carbon content made it weak, heavy and brittle. Chinese steel could be cast into forms that were flexible, lighter and did not as easily break.

For the Romans, though, what was most important was not steel or silk, but something hardly mentioned in the texts. Branch banking.

To an empire, what you want is not important; what’s important is what you can buy. Rome could never have conquered China and taken its silk and steel. They had to buy it and to do that; they had to not only have money but move it.

Regardless of how powerful a country is, shipping gold across the seas is dangerous and expensive. The Romans, like the Greeks and Jews, solved this by using their temples as banks. Banks took in deposits and issued notes, promises written on paper in lieu of gold. If a person wanted or needed gold, they could have it, just as one who needs cash can get it from a bank, but if they don’t need it, it stays in the bank in their account. This meant the Romans did not need to continually ship gold to finance trade or construction, two things that require large amounts of money.

The Romans protected their temples with armies,

which was why locals kept their money there, but the real beauty of the steel and silk trade was Rome’s ability to tax it. The import taxes on steel and silk were as high as 25%, and the cost of these in the empire was staggering. It’s been estimated that a single bolt of Chinese silk may have cost the equivalent of 8 years of Roman wages. This gave the Romans the ability to create something that didn’t exist in 37BC. A standing army financed by wages and not plunder. Plunder may be a cheap way to finance a war, but you must keep finding new plunder.

In many ways, Bill Clinton, unwittingly, became the Octavian of his time…

though Octavian was a general and Clinton a draft dodger. Clinton’s claim to fame, (or infamy, as it may turn out) was to set the banks free. By eliminating Glass-Steagall and changing banking regulations, he set in motion a chain of events that led us to where we are today. A nation with a mammoth military financed through taxing and borrowing against trade.

Is this good or bad for America?

Like the weather, this is impossible to predict. On the one hand, the US has borrowed rivers of money. On the other, that river has bought us quite a lot. Aside from too many houses too many bars and too many malls, America has something else no one seems to notice. A gargantuan university system.
In Roman times, all roads led to Rome. The same is true here. 9 of the top 10 universities in the world and 35 of the top 50 are in the USA. Of course, you can get an education from a book, but that’s hardly the point.

A few years back, I lived inside the triangle engulfed by three universities, Harvard, MIT, and Tufts.

If you think of these institutions as places you get an education, you’re missing half the story. Harvard college is small, but its graduate school is enormous. The same is true of MIT and Tufts. The level of research going on in this triangle is staggering, and if you think it’s because of “American exceptionalism,” think again. The top students in these universities, as well as many of the professors, are from nearly every country on earth. As my daughter aptly put it when I asked her how many of her classmates in chemistry class at Wellesley were American, she said, “Just me and Eileen.”
To put this in its true perspective, America has 1,400 colleges and universities. The amount of money flowing through is probably higher than the GDP of 80% of the world’s nations. The amount of research being produced is hard to fathom, much less control.

Our Universities may be on the cusp of replacing what for 20,000 years has defined nations. Resources.

They are close to making oil obsolete. The effect on the USA is hard to fathom. Even though the price of computing has fallen by a factor of 3,000 in the last 20 years, the prices of oil and coal, on inflation-adjusted terms, have barely budged in the last 80 years. As Bill Gates once said, if the cost of transportation fell as fast as the cost of computing, you’d be able to buy a jet for what it used to cost for a neck-tie.

This has led to a one to one relationship between energy use and GDP growth. Imagine if this ratio changed by a factor of not 3,000, but just two. Imagine going from using 100 million barrels per day of oil to 50 million? It’s almost impossible to fathom. An electric car uses one-fifth the fossil fuel a gas or diesel powered auto uses. The US has 250 million vehicles!

The same is true of farmland, copper, and steel. We may be within a couple of decades of a family being able to produce almost everything they need to eat in their basements using as much energy as is created by a couple of hours on an exercise bike. In just the last two years, seed technology has raised some crop yields by 20% using the same soil and less fertilizer. Vegetables can already be grown in warehouses and can compete on a price basis with those shipped in from Mexico and sold in Walmart.

We’re close to being able to diagnose illnesses with a cell phone and where you can make love with your spouse that is 3,000 miles away in a hotel bed. We’re a decade away from being able to sit in a room and have a conversation with Einstein and your long-deceased grandmother.

Why is this important? For all of our history, the world has been ruled by empires, from the Romans to the Ottomans, the Han to the Ming, the British Empire to the USA. Imagine a world where everything you need is at your fingertips. Imagine a world where Empires no longer matter.

Is the USA declining, or, as in the case of Dinosaurs, are we becoming smaller and more sustainable?

Roger Stone Indictment

The Republican that Wasn’t – Richard Painter, ethics attorney, calls out Roger Stone.

According to Deutsche Welle, Roger Stone is a ‘long time Trump advisor’ and is the link to collusion between the Trump campaign and Wikileaks.   This revelation comes according to Richard Painter, a former Bush White House ethics lawyer who is an outspoken critic of Trump, is affiliated with the far-left leaning Campaign Legal Center, and who ran for the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party while previously claiming to be a Republican for Bush, before becoming an Independent running as a Democrat – who lost quite soundly.  Painter is also a commentator for CNN – the same CNN that had leaked information on the Roger Stone Indictment that was a staged scene worthy of el Chapo.

This is the voice of reason according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle.  Where the heck did they get him?   Soros.

Painter is also Vice Chair for Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics, CREW, a far-left liberal leaning organization whose Chairman, David Brock, is aligned with various Soros organizations including Media Matters, American Bridge, and American Independent Institute parlays a rabid Anti-Trump Agenda.  Building a base by filing complaints against Republican and Conservative organizations, the organization’s main task is to bring down – Trump.

But Deutsche Welle felt this person, Richard Painter, was fair fodder to disclose collusion between Trump and Stone and WikiLeaks and Russia.  Ah!

Despite being a 501©(3) prohibited from engaging in partisan or political activities, CREW has managed to far surpass that IRS legal point without even a slap on the wrist.

In the interview with Deutsche Welle, he states that the fact that Mueller indicted Stone is evidence that:  “collusion between high-ranking officials in the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks to obtain documents stolen by the Russians in the 2016 election. There is other evidence of course of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. So this clearly closes the loop and makes clear that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians, with WikiLeaks to obtain damaging emails that have been stolen from Hillary Clinton and the DNC.”

From a strictly legal standpoint;  a)  an indictment is NOT evidence of anything. And  b)  Mueller has already stated that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump and Russia.   And c)  Stone stopped working for the Trump campaign in 2015 with Trump saying he was fired, and Stone saying he quit. The DNC hack occurred in May 2016.

It would appear that by making these statements, Painter, as a lawyer, is putting himself in a position of libel and slander. 

Painter continues these bizarre statements by claiming that  this also proves that Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr, and Trump were all in Trump Tower together “…meeting with the Russians to talk about incriminating dirt on Hillary that they wanted to get.”

For an attorney, Painter is clearly painting himself into a defamation lawsuit potential.

But his statements just plow on.

He highlights the fact that this Indictment is clearly the link for the circle that will bring Trump et al ‘down’ because Manafort was convicted, Gates was convicted and Cohen was convicted.   But wait – yes, all of these individuals were convicted – on charges of tax fraud – not Russian collusion.  Nyeh – details.

And for his piece-de-resistance, Richard Painter goes to the height of legal deception by stating:   “It is very dangerous for the United States, because as the prosecutors move closer and closer to Donald Trump and senior members of his campaign — including his own family — we are very concerned that his irrational behavior is going to increase. And that is a dangerous situation when he is in control of nuclear weapons and has as much power as he does.”

The implication being that Trump will detonate a nuclear catastrophic bomb annihilating the globe should he be impeached.  Painter then calls for Trump to resign immediately as he most assuredly faces criminal charges along with his family members.

This interview couldn’t be more impertinent, more false, or more speculative and defaming, and is truly grounds for defamation beyond comprehension!  The fact that Deutsche Welle, a government financed taxpayer funded media outlet would have the audacity to publish such drivel is purely a vindictive agenda promulgated by the failing Merkel presidency, and a desperate Soros.

The Indictment itself makes statements that are not proven including;   “The DNC – thru Company 1 – publically announced that it had been hacked by Russian government actors.”  An announcement – is not evidentiary conclusion. The crux of most of the Indictment is that Stone had communicated with WikiLeaks through an intermediary August 2016, three months after the DNC hack.  In addition, Mueller’s Indictment states that WikiLeaks is actually a Russian mole.  Unproven.  Biased.  And most definitely a Hillary take-em-all-down tantrum.

The entire Indictment, this ridiculous interview with Painter, the means with which Stone was served and arrested, the CNN exclusive media crew skulking at Stone’s house to film the verbose episode ALL so REEK of Clinton, it is impossible to come to any other conclusion.  The fact that an attorney, Painter, would subject himself to such massive defamation speaks to his legal acumen and without doubt his character.

Not even the most liberal New York Times is biting on this drivel.

FACT CHECK Organizations – Liberal, Biased and Comical

A new and improved Fact checking – media bias – organization is making its way around the world of news – creatively calling themselves ‘media bias fact check’.   Organized in 2015, their tag line is ‘the most comprehensive media bias resource’.  The founder/editor Dave Van Zandt states that he uses volunteers to do his bidding and that he has a degree in communications.   Some of his fact checking point pieces link back to PolitiFact, another fact checking media bias organization.   Many, if not most, of these unbiased unaffiliated fact check checkers are hugely biased and left leaning and are promoted by Facebook as the real deal.  

In actuality, they aren’t remotely the real deal, and so incredibly biased it could be comical, except that some people actually believe them.

One of PolitiFacts latest scourge was to call Trump a half-liar because he said the Democrats wanted the wall before he wanted the wall.  According to PolitiFact, not all Democrats wanted the wall, just Hillary, Schumer, and Obama.  Secondly, they didn’t build a wall – they built a fence.   Really!  Therefore, Trump lied.  Really! That is their logic and rationale.

PolitiFact is funded by the uber liberal Knight Foundation, and it’s CEO, Alberto Ibarguen, who are heavy donors to Clinton.  Other liberal donors include, Ford Foundation, Democracy Fund, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  The Democracy Fund was created by Pierre Omidyar of eBay and donated heavily to Hillary, Obama and Pelosi.  A prevue of their site is much like reading the Washington Post – it is a swarmy replication of anti-Trump, anti-Hannity, pro-Obama cheap-o-meter garbage.

In 2018, The Poynter Institute acquired PolitiFact.    The Poynter Institute receives its funding from Omidyar, Bill and Melinda Gates, Google, Open Society Foundations, National Endowment for Democracy and the Park Foundation.

The National Endowment For Democracy is funded by none other than the US Congress.   The President of NED is Carl Gershman who previously served as Executive Director of Social Democrats USA, and was an officer of the Young Peoples Socialist League.   In 2006, he laughingly stated that he’s not really a Socialist, he’s now a Democrat…

PolitiFact now utilizes a live fact stream whereby they claim the moment a politician makes a statement on television, it is fact checked for being true or false which means a) they have to make an analysis within seconds,  and b) john Q public is immediately streamed a Democrat liberal bias.

While PolitiFact desperately highlights the fact that they won a Pulitzer Prize, a)   The Pulitzer has been discredited routinely for only rewarding liberals – over a 31 year span only 5 conservatives won prizes for commentary,  and b) in order to be considered for the prize, you enter yourself and pay an entry fee.  For example, the current administrator on the board formerly worked for the liberal – New York Times.  Essentially it is much like Hollywood’s Golden Globes, wherein liberal Hollywood honors liberal Hollywood.

So what we have is an unbiased, unaffiliated fact checker organization funded by Socialists, Democrats, and Soros that is promoted as the Real McCoy by Facebook to shut down Trump, bloggers and conservatives as ‘false’ while regurgitating fake news.

Snopes has been around since 1994 and was created by David and Barbara Mikkelson.   It too has claimed to be unbiased, unaffiliated, and just a good ole boy urban legend outfit that happens to be used by MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, and Forbes.

Snopes was fact checked by Factcheck.org which gave it an A+++.  Factcheck.org is owned by the Annenberg Foundation and was launched by former CNN reporter, Brooks Jackson.  No bias there…   In 2015, Barbara and David Mikkelson went through a very nasty, bitter, scandal fueled divorce in which she claimed that he was spending their ad money like it was jelly beans, hiring prostitutes, and looting the company.  Barbara filed a lawsuit.   He countersued.  David is now sole owner of Snopes has remarried and hired on his staff, Elyssa Young, a former escort and porn actress.  In 2004, Elyssa ran for Hawaii’s 1stCongressional District as a Libertarian and lost flatly.  David has also hired as one of his principle fact checkers, Kim LaCapria, whose former experience includes her own blogosphere site, Vice Vixen, an exploitive site that discussed sex, sex toys, hedonism and fetishes.  She brags that she is high on pot when she writes for Snopes.

Many of the Fact Checking sites are so biased it is absurdity at its finest, or lowest, it is a form of censorship, it is replete with fakery and anonymity.  They are supported and funded by liberal Democrats bent on feeding the public a Mockingbird of information.  Basically, they work for the same liberal media they fact check…  Coockoo… 

Globalists Call For Saudi Arabia Coup

I am writing this as an observation.  Not as judge or jury.  The US and all its People have been seriously mocked, shamed and derided during the Obama and Bush administrations.  There is a cosmic shift taking place, not just in the US, but across parts of Europe, The Middle East, and Russia – and we need to heed, and realize what is being revealed:  Our enemies are our friends – and our friends are our enemies…

The Democrats are in a tizzy because Jared Kushner is friends with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman. As though being friends with Saudi royals is something forbidden and new?  So why are the Socialists and Democrats so concerned with demonizing the Saudi’s suddenly?  What has changed?   Because if the Democrats are trying to take down the Saudi Prince, it is a fair bet that conservatives should embrace him?

A cosmic shift.

Saudi Arabia is no different than the US in that it was ruled by a Swamp of elders for decades, the same elders who were quite friendly with the Clintons and helped finance the Clinton Foundation, Pelosi Foundation and a host of others – tit-for-tat.

The Crown Prince assumed office June 2017, six months after Trump’s triumph in winning the Presidential Election.  Four months later, the Crown Prince did something that was incredibly defining and barely made media headlines – he ordered the arrest and confinement of over 500 Saudi businessmen, froze their bank accounts, charged them with corruption and when the evidence was revealed, 95% of those charged made a plea deal.   He targeted $800 billion in cash and assets that these businessmen were charged with obtaining through means of corruption. That is roughly equal to the entire amount of US Treasuries held by the Saudis.

He then began the process of remaking Saudi Arabia, slowly, but with a view of creating a solid country as opposed to lining the pockets of solid wealthy elite.  In essence, he is Saudi Arabia’s Trump.

The move is referred to as The Great Purge and compared to a similar one executed by Putin.  I emphasize Soros and anything Rothschild are forbidden from Russia.

Media reports eulogize the fact that the Saudi Crown Prince jailed a number of female activists for ‘driving’.   What is not reported is the rise of women activists across the Middle East who are members of the Muslim Brotherhood.  They advocate for ‘women’s rights’ have championed for political office in Egypt and Turkey and are now positioning themselves in the US.  As of our last election, 2 women who advocate for the Sisterhood of the Muslim Brotherhood were elected to the House of Representatives.

Khashoggi, the activist who was recently killed in Turkey was a vocal member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Russia and Syria, the Muslim Brotherhood is considered a terrorist organization, and any member is subject to arrest as a terrorist.  Their primary backers are Turkey and Qater. Khashoggi was killed in Turkey. They believe in imperialism, the return of the Ottoman Empire, Sharia Law for ALL, and have called for Jihad against Trump.

Linda Sarsour, a radical vocalist for the Muslim Brotherhood, who was a speaker at the Women’s March, and is an advocate of female genital mutilation, helped Ilkhan Omar from Minnesota and Rashid Tlaib from Michigan obtain their seats in the US House this past election cycle.  They have announced their demand for Sharia Law and Hajib.

Sadiq Khan, mayor of London, is said to have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.   Huma Abedin, Hillary’s right hand, was affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

There is a cosmic shift. 

Syria’s Assad was against the Muslim Brotherhood and cracked down on their activism in Syria.   We are past witness to what was perpetrated against Syria during the Reign of Obama and Clinton.   Going after Saudi Arabia – is aligned and The Swamp is vigilant.

Assad was an ally of the US until 2011 when Obama and the Rothschild constituents decided Assad must go. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, insisted Assad must go, he had lost legitimacy, Obama issued an edict demanding Assad step down.  He didn’t. His country was destroyed.

The Swamp is now calling for Prince Mohammed bin Salman – to stand down.  Why?  Because a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist was assassinated.  Which Swampers are making the call?  Rubio, Graham, Bob Corker, Gina Haspel, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, Flake the flake, … etc.  In so doing, they have revealed themselves as The Swamp, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood. The Washington Post has published articles in which they state without denial that the Muslim Brotherhood is a good organization and Trump should not revile their sweet kind agenda of Jihad. Ummm, the opinion pieces were written by Jamal Khashoggi.

We may never agree on the ‘customs’ of The Middle East, certainly I have no desire to emigrate.   But the Middle East is divided.  Just like the US.   Just like Europe.   Just like Canada.   And it is important to be able to distinguish who is our friend and who is our enemy.

Trump is a man of ‘solution’, he fixes things, he’s not a band-aide kind of guy. Jared is his behind the scenes fixer. He put together the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada and the press had no idea. The Israeli/Palestinian debacle would be an amazing fix. Put together by the UK after WWI, they were sloppy and didn’t consider consequences. 100 years later both sides are a mess. Israel will never concede. The Palestinians want a home. The Saudi Prince has stated that he realizes oil is no longer ‘Black Gold’ and he wants to diversify his country industrially and for tourism. If Jared, who is now demonized by the media for his friendship with the Crown Prince, can ink a deal whereby we help build their industry, their tit-for-tat would be to build a city for the Palestinians. It could be an incredibly multi-billion dollar win-win for everyone.

In the end, remember, if the Swamp calls them friend… they are likely our enemy… and if they call them enemy… they are likely our friend.  And they Reveal themselves as The Swamp when they align against rationale.  

Such is the Topsy-Turvy World We Live In.

And in my opinion, I think Prince Mohammed bin Salman is a good guy in the Globalist Agenda.

Facebook And The Rise of Socialists in US

Zuckerberg has now found himself in the unholy crossfires of not just Hillary, but Soros, who has aligned with Trillium Asset Management’s CEO, Mat Prasky, to call for Zuckerberg’s resignation.  Why? Because Facebook bloggers have had the audacity to malign Soros in their posts.  

Facebook found itself in the doghouse with Hillary as she blamed it for her presidential bid loss due to ‘negative posts’ that Zuckerberg did not promptly censor, like a good Socialist/Communist should.  Soros finds himself in the same predicament and has decided the analytics are too permissive and must be wholly liberal.

Full Circle:   Trillium bills itself as a “Green Fund” and Prasky upholds that ideology within his Board memberships including Social Venture Network which has honored such notable companies as Green For All.  Green For All was launched at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007 by founder, Van Jones, who sits on the Board of Social Venture Network .  Van Jones served as President Obama’s advisor for Green Jobs and has been covered extensively by CNN, New York Times, USA Today and The View.  Like Obama, Jones’ monetary rewards would seem to coincide with his two published books, which like Obama’s made the NYT best seller list.

Jones is backed by the NAACP, Ebony, Rockefeller, Rolling Stone, Elle, Time Magazine, World Economic Forum, etc…  He has worked with Moveon.org under Soros, and The Center For American Progress under Podesta.  Jones is a viable Socialist candidate being groomed for a future presidential bid.

Facebook is recognized as a most powerful exploitive tool to gain control of and create a person’s ‘opinion’.   Although Zuckerberg is aligned with Hillary and Soros, he did not shore up fast enough, and the Cabal needs to take over in time to assert a Coup of American politics if not in 2020, then in 2024.

And the new rumbling isn’t so much the progressives per se, as the Socialists who run under the guise of the Democratic ticket because they haven’t yet gained the necessary power to act independently.  It would appear, according to various Socialist party websites, that their tactic is to capitalize on a growing base, hide within the Democrat party until 2023 when they plan to rise up within the call for a “Revolution” reminiscent of the Bolsheviks.

College students lean toward Liberal Green agenda’s without any understanding of Socialism and its massively destructive ramifications.  Creating a Green profile platform for 2024 will secure their support.  Van Jones is black.  With the radical dysphoria infused in the US by the Liberals to divide whites and blacks, that population segment will further splinter and Jones will rise as a Socialist black man advocating for people of color and youth. The Democrat Party will likely collapse as the old suits die off and their crimes gain traction in the media. This die off will push traditional Democrats toward the Socialist Party.

According to the website, Democratic Socialists of America, during the midterms they voted in 4 congressional candidates, 12 nationally endorsed elected officials, 30 locally endorsed elected officials, and 35 locally endorsed ballot initiatives in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Hawaii, Rhode Island, DC, Montano, Maine, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Maryland, Missouri, Oregon, Texas, Tennessee, and Washington.

Their event schedule for November 18th:  How To Do Targeted Advertising On Facebook.

Oddly, many people in the US are not educated in the ideology and history of Socialism, what it means, what it entails, and historical leaders who attempted to govern under this dictatorial means:

1)   Venezuela is the most recent catastrophic result of a Socialist government policy.  Nicolas Madura is the current President ruling under the United Socialist Party under a program that has been referred to as authoritarian and dictatorial and has been instrumental in the complete chaotic collapse of the entire economic and social system plague by an inflation rate of 1million percent.

2)   The National Socialist Workers’ Party or the Nazi’s were the children of Hitler. Germany was in a free fall and in 1931 during the Great Depression, Hoover called a moratorium on WWI reparations to Germany causing widespread collapse of banks and industries.  1933 Hitler came to power under the guise of freeing Germany from the tyranny of economic collapse.

3)   The Bolsheviks were factions within the Russian Social Democratic Party following the ideology of Socialist, Karl Marx.  Lenin was a dictator who became leader of the Socialist Revolution ultimately throwing Russia into Communist rule for decades.

The US is not without socialist reforms; welfare, Medicaid, public schools, etc…  But just as Germany has instituted more and more control over citizen’s freedoms, so has the US with the assistance of the media as they redefine and recreate history to virtually ‘uneducate’ The People.

You cannot have globalization without Socialism.  You cannot have Socialism without a dictatorship government.  While Merkel appears more and more defeated as she calls for the UN to be the governing world body, this remains the agenda amidst a splintering EU, an uninformed Macron, and a collapsing Theresa May.

The common denominator for Venezuela, Hitler and the Bolsheviks was ‘Youth”.  Garner the youth, call for a revolution, and institute a civil war.  I believe that is the same call the Socialists are advocating in the US today… Buyer Beware.

Pipe Bomb Scare or Scandal?

George Soros was the first recipient of the pipe bomb.  It was ‘hand delivered’ to his mailbox at his suburban home in Katonah New York.   The normal carrier for his mail was questioned and told the FBI he does not remember such a package.  Which means it was delivered by the creator, or someone hired by the creator.   And somehow, despite all the billions, Soros seems to not have a security system or camera at this property that would have videoed the delivery?

The package with a pipe bomb that the media claims was delivered to DeNiro was actually found ‘near a restaurant DeNiro co-owns’ with Sean Penn and Russell Simons.

Apparently, Biden felt left out of the sympathy fanfare and notified the FBI that surely there was a bomb package for him – somewhere?  So dutifully, they found one sitting in a Delaware post office ready to be returned to sender.  Biden was overjoyed!  He was included after-all.

Eric Holder’s bomb was apparently returned to sender, Debbie Wasserman.

The bomb addressed to Brennan was actually sent to CNN, and had his name misspelled ‘Brenan’.

The one delivered to Hillary and Bill was intercepted during normal mail screening.

The one for Obama was ‘intercepted’ as well – security paid for by US Taxpayers.

Apparently, none of the bombs contained the necessary detonation ‘device’.  They were not meant to blow.   Most were hand delivered.  No cameras apparently caught any deliveries.   There were no notes.

Attached to the bombs was a black paper placard that depicted three erotic looking women painted in white at the top and the meme:  Get Er Gone.   The meme is a takeoff of a book title, “Git R Gone” and is considered Urban language for inspiring action.

According to the FBI, the stamps were licked and contain saliva DNA, and fingerprints were left on the receptacles.

The MSM New York Times issued a ranting attack against Trump for instigating violence while printing a picture and opinion piece in which Trump is assassinated.    Maxine Waters has routinely called for Trump’s death as has DeNiro.   Eric Holder called for actionable violence by all Democrats against all Conservatives.    Waters has also been quite verbal in instigating violence against people in public places that are supporters of Trump. Of course, her rally’s have been rather sparsely populated garnering perhaps 15 or so.

The irony of the NYT statement is lost on their fake news agenda.

But if the pipe bombs had no detonation device, the creator had no intention of hurting anyone, she/he was just sending a warning or colluding in an election sting.  While the spin is that the bombs target critics of Trump, that would indicate every Liberal is a potential target…  given they all criticize and assault Trump.  The spin is simply that – rhetoric.

These bizarre antics of blaming Trump for everything from hurricanes to serial killers, to pipe bombers is a form of mental instability labeled –   ‘fundamental attribution error’, and an attribute of narcissistic sociopathy.    It is a form of control, a need to control, a need to attack, an inability to take responsibility for anything, and a pathological need to lie.

The antics of Debbie Wasserman brought down the DNC.  She disgraced the party and was found by WikiLeaks to have orchestrated fraud within the DNC that may or may not have led to the brutal murder of staff member, Seth Rich.  Refusing to resign, Obama forced her resignation.  She became the most prominent scapegoat.

As such, her name as the sender of the pipe bombs was quite intentional.

But the obvious intent of labeling Trump a disgrace because of his attacks on ‘the media’ is rather an odd rant given the media was not a target, the bomb sent to CNN was addressed to Brennan…Somehow the media thinks they are the target?

Wasserman is a candidate for Florida-23 a mostly democrat district within Broward County.  Broward County is home to student turned national Liberal activist David Hogg.   Today, the FBI stated they are concentrating their efforts on South Florida as they pinpoint the source of the pipe bombs.   It could be interesting…  might explain the crude construction, the wrong addresses, the misspellings…not to mention the fact they were not built to actually detonate.

Illegal Immigrant Crisis – Global Chaos

Dutch authorities have admitted massive fraud in the refugee benefit program wherein Turkish citizens with homes in Turkey are using fake ID’s to claim benefits in The Netherlands and Germany.  According to Dutch authorities upwards of 17million Euros have vanished and perhaps as many as 12,000 Turks and migrants are capitalizing on the fraudulent scam.  

In fact, the Turkish town of Rashdiye is home to 700 Turks, all of whom claim and are supported by German welfare.   This is their ‘wage’, it provides for all their needs including a home, food, and even televisions.  According to one such resident, his children work and own multiple hotels, but this is free money.  German authorities are aware, but choose to ignore the situation because it would be bad press coverage and stoke more animosity toward the migrants.

Last year, when an employee of Germany’s state reception authority discovered that a large number of migrants were collecting multiple benefits using different names, sometimes as many as six, and reported the fraud, she was fired.   Her boss told her to bury the files in the basement where they wouldn’t be found, leave it alone, and most importantly, keep quiet.  She refused.

Still, nothing changed, no one is denied benefits.  It might appear racist or discriminatory, or their fragile demeanor might be offended…

The Dutch authorities state that the fraud is most likely widespread throughout the EU with Turks, Syrians, Afghani’s, and Lebanese playing the game.  And they have an unlikely assist to help them in these schemes – medical doctors.   In both Germany and France, medical doctors sometimes provide fake medical certificates for immigrants who have no ID in order to prevent deportation.   They then use these fake documents to obtain welfare benefits including ‘retroactive benefits’.

The cost of illegal immigration is difficult to tally, because it involves services not typically transparent such as;  deportation costs, travel costs, medical costs, fraud costs, housing and welfare costs, childcare costs, border costs, security costs, and societal costs.

According to the Heritage Foundation, as of 2013, the cost to the US was roughly $55 billion per year for ‘illegal immigrants’.   According to FAIR, Federation For American Immigration Reform, the annual ‘NET’ cost is now $116 billion per year on a federal, state and local level.

The confusing issue that seems to somehow allude the MSM, is attempting to classify illegal vs legal immigration.   No one is opposed to immigration, it is the illegal portion that is at issue.  If Governor Jerry Brown wants to personally go to Honduras and grant California documents to a bunch of Hondurans and personally fly them back to San Francisco, then more power to him.  If George Clooney wants to house illegals at his home in Lake Cuomo Italy and have Amal get them legal citizenship while providing an annual stipend to keep them off welfare, more power to him.

But this constant defense of illegal activity is simply nonsense.

Germany has estimated a cost of $86 billion over four years to support their immigrants and plan to pay for it out of their surplus budget…   Unfortunately, they are also attempting to spend their surplus on the creation of a new military given the US demand for them to be in compliance with the 2% requirement, and they are spending their surplus on debt repayment so that they can be in compliance with the EU Commission requirement of no more than 60%.   Some economists argue that Germany’s surplus comes at a detriment for other EU countries whose markets are squeezed because of Germany’s low import strategy which, despite Merkel’s rhetoric, is a nationalist strategy.   Germany is actually on par with China, hypocritically claiming a global alliance effort, while supporting a nationalist economic Germany.   Greece and Italy suffer in particular.   But Germany’s imports are falling, its trade economy is faltering, and its ability to pay for all these welfare immigration costs is less likely.

Germany is also battling their policy of uniting unaccompanied immigrant minors with their extended families.  The same policies that the US battles.    It also follows that many immigrants claiming to be minors are actually considerably older, and thus not entitled to the unification.  In 2015, 95,000 unaccompanied minors applied for asylum, in 2016 it was 63,200, and in 2017 31,000 – 90% of which are males.    How many family members were they entitled to bring to Germany?

Without documentation, these Afghani’s and Eritreans that overwhelm the system claim they are under the age of 18 and therefore entitled by German law.  Backing off, Merkel has ordered her government to deny the reunification and is ordering Medical testing  to determine their true age.

With the radical islamafication movement within the EU, France is now facing the ultimate truism as they predict that many mayoral candidates in the 2022 cycle will be Salafi Muslims as entire districts and towns are majority Islam.

Arguments still abound regarding the net surplus these immigrants bring…  Arguing that tax revenues are increased as a result, the NET deficit in France was still $22 billion in 2009 and the argument is terribly poor because it does not consider the true ‘COSTS’!

Illegal immigrants in a district north of Paris now account for 20% of the population.   But it is illegal in France to identify a person by their status – so true numbers are virtually impossible to tabulate.   This same District has a 50% unemployment rate and the locals there blame France…for their predicament.

Macron’s solution?

Process them faster so they are no longer illegal.  As for the unemployment – education and language remain the deterrents.

It is interesting to read articles from four or five years ago wherein the immigration issue was a nonissue and the governments and respective media outlets were encouraging more and more, faster and faster, only to read articles today wherein the same governments, the same media outlets, decry the folly and are quick to label blame.

It is reminiscent of the Clinton and Obama reproach today of Trump’s anti policies only to find articles and videos in which they said the same thing against the illegal flux 3 – 5 – and even 10 years ago.  Odd those videos don’t seem to make it to the unbiased MSM?

It is why we need to claim history vehemently –  because it remains evidence.

Facebook Censorship – An Anti-Trust Resolution?

The media that fought valiantly to indignantly assert their claim that they are NOT BIASED, don’t even try to pretend any longer.  The front page of the New York Times has over 20 articles that are anti-conservative defaming.  There is not one attempt at middle ground.  It is as though they have pulled their thumb from the dike that was always the New York Times and vomit hate within the flood of torrent waters.  Most, if not all of the headlines are false, they aren’t news, they aren’t imbedded in facts, they are ‘opinion’ disguised in the new media veil of undisclosed source or anonymous. 

Of course the other media outlets that cry foul when called out as Liberal biased, including the Washington Post and CNN, have also let loose the pretense and opened a floodgate of demonizing and hate.

Even their stock reports were oddly seemingly biased.   In a story about Caterpillar stock, CNN provided a gloomy and negative picture all aligned within a Trumpism causation.  However, The Wall Street Journal had a completely different perspective with glowing support.  FYI; Caterpillar grew year over year by 24%, it’s earnings beat estimates, and its sales continue to exceed expectations ramping up 23%.  Profit taking dropped the stock.  It did not issue any warnings as The Washington Post is stating.

Ellen Degenres producer has openly, without filter, attacked Melania in every way possible, from her appearance, her style, her behavior, her actions, to her ethnicity.  All within the guise of ‘tolerance and kindness’.    Apparently, female power only applies to Liberal females.

The Washington Post has also lifted any pretense it may have proclaimed, and dry heaves the most egregious bias of opinion and hatred toward anyone who dares support Trump.

Ads are being pumped across these venues by Facebook as it proclaims it is working diligently to expel all the fake media outlets that might assert an opinion in contrast to the Liberal agenda.   While claiming to use AI to shred the conservative/fake accounts, Facebook fails to acknowledge that AI is a program by definition.  And programs are created by humans.  And those humans are employed by Facebook.

Last January Julian Assange of WikiLeaks warned about the massive ramping up of Facebook, Google and their Chinese counterparts to censor information:

“Burgeoning digital super states such as Facebook, Google and their Chinese equivalents who are integrated with the existing order, have moved to re-establish discourse control. This is not simply a corrective action. Undetectable mass social influence powered by artificial intelligence is an existential threat to humanity.”

AI harvests what it is told to harvest, expunges what it is told to expunge, and eliminates what it is told to eliminate.   It is an algorithm not independent.  It’s information is the result of its program analytics.  And yet, Facebook would have the world believe that because it is AI, somehow it is unbiased…

Even that is fake news.

Zuckerberg continually makes news as “institutional shareholders” of Facebook stock want him removed from the Board of Directors.  It would thus appear, that his sellout to the globalists hasn’t panned exactly as planned.  And they want more.  Institutional Ownership constitutes roughly 60% of the shares with Chevy Chase Holding and Strs Ohio leading the pack.     But it is Trillium Wealth Management that has openly made the call.  Its CEO, Matthew William Patsky, was a Hillary Victory donor.

Could it be that Hillary blames Zuckerberg for her Presidential loss, and he will simply become the latest hit list victim despite desperate attempts to completely censor Facebook?

“If you look at Facebook, the vast majority of the news items posted were fake,” she asserted. “They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages …”

But Zuckerberg’s fate may be a result of too little too late as far as Hillary is concerned.  Despite being warned by Soros funded Media Matters that censorship of conservative news was paramount before the 2016 election, Zuckerberg dragged his feet and didn’t initiate the purge until Trump was elected.  That put him in the wiles of Hillary – and the call for his ousting is rather non-coincidental.

The need to completely obliterate conservative media is the goal.  And as Assange warned, it may be too vast already to obliterate….  But Trump has asked for an investigation into whether Facebook, Google and Twitter have engaged in anti-trust violations regarding ‘fair competition’.   While Zuckerberg claims the censorship is Russia related, he also admitted in testimony that the alleged Russia interference was so marginally small as to have no impact.  In so doing, he has set himself up as a potential target by this admission given that the hits and expulsions are predominantly conservative and thus he is engaging in anti-trust behavior.  In addition, Facebook has been called out for age bias when posting job ads for various companies.  In that frame, Facebook applies an algorithm in which only millennials ‘see’ the ad, a blatant discrimination violation.

While claiming that AI is making the determinations, he is basically asserting that AI is an independent entity out of the control of Facebook.

An interesting defense, but one that has no basis – hence ousting Zuckerberg would thus be Facebook’s purge as they make him the root and cause of all their problems.  The scapegoat.  With a Supreme Court aligned with Trump – such a charge could have a more fair judicial decision.

Other media outlets may find themselves facing similar charges.

Wikipedia: A Facebook/Google Protege

Sometime ago I got hooked on the phrase “Follow The Money”.  It has proven to be even more than I could possibly imagine.  And today was proof again.

I was reading that Breitbart has been delisted from Wikipedia as a source, and they are further considering blacklisting.  And while Wikipedia has a history of controversies, including the fact that most schools prohibit Wikipedia from being used as a citation, they seem to have jumped onto the Facebook – Google Bandwagon, and their Liberal bias is just as perverse, if not more so!

Wikipedia is actually owned by Wikimedia Foundation which is governed by a Board and has as it’s current Executive Director, Katherine Maher.  Her bio states that she worked for the National Democratic Institute, an NGO whose Chair is Madeleine Albright, a Trilateral confederate, and whose source of funding includes the US Department of State, as well as the governments of Australia, Denmark and Belgium.   The Board Chair of the Foundation, Christophe Henner, has no Wikimedia profile at all – a rather bizarre oddity.

In case that doesn’t hit a home run, that means, a US NGO that is pro- Clinton, Soros, and everything Liberal is funded by ALL US taxpayers as well as governments from very Liberal/Socialist countries…  The irony being that Republicans are funding Liberal NGO’s!  I’m sure they find this very humorous…

Ahhh, but it gets better.

In 2015, Wikipedia attempted to launch “Knowledge Engine” which aimed to created a loop of sorts that would take internet searches back to them no matter the content or the Google search wording.  The funding for this cryptic engine was the Knight Foundation.  In line with numerous media outlets; NBC, ABC, NYT, and WAPO, The James L. Knight Foundation also backs the Investigative News Network, INN, which is funded by Soros Open Society Foundation, and is possibly the most-well-known journalism foundation. Knight President and CEO, Alberto Ibargüen, is on the board of directors for ProPublica.

Pro-Publica is affiliated with The New York Times and gets it’s funding from; Open Society Foundation, Knight Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation Pew Charitable Trusts, The Carnegie Corporation and the Atlantic Philanthropies.  We can assume – that all these foundations are interlinked within the Democrat Foundation, ie, The Swamp.

How deep does it go?

The founders of Wikipedia, Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales, made their debut launching an ‘adult content’ erotica portal that Wales likened to Maxim magazine. Many of the Trustees and Board author content for Wikipedia under pseudonyms, many of which have German tenure and nearly all, if not all, would appear to be – Liberals.

What this reveals is a very intense demonstrative action to – rewrite history.  To eradicate all but one thought process.  And to dummy down, not just the US, but the world when it comes to people, events, and even – opinion.  Wikipedia has a huge presence in Germany, Australia, UK, Canada, India, etc… They crafted themselves as the purveyor of knowledge, the definer of history, and the opinion of mankind.

And now, they have chosen to defame sources that they deem do not align with their World Agenda.

The extent to which we have been manipulated only seems to grow exponentially with the unveilings.  We are all sources.  We were all duped.  We have all been manipulated at some point.  And yet, these people, these web communities, would seem to have absolutely no self examination or guilt.   Instead they would seem to take pride in the extent to which they can fool and demonize.  These people that Jimmy Wales surrounded himself with came from Google, JP Morgan, Semantic, Quora, the UN, etc…, with a very large presence coming from – Merkel’s, Germany.

The same Merkel who censors media and promotes the criminal offense of saying anything anti-Islam.

The bio’s of these affiliates of Wikimedia are typically referred to as so-and-so of the Wikimedia Movement.  “Our aim was to identify a common strategic direction that would unite and inspire people across our movement on our way to 2030, and help us make decisions.”

Each month on average, Wikipedia is viewed more than 15 billion times, and accessed by more than 1 billion unique devices.  More than 200,000 editors are volunteers.  German researchers rank Wikipedia high as a reliable source…  And this one is quite grand!  Researchers at Harvard, the same Harvard that has produced MOST of The Swamp, concluded that Wikipedia’s editors are critical reliable resources for verifiable topics and concerns…

Surprise!

Of course, this glowing tribute was written by a California lawyer within the law firm associated with the Milken Institute.  If you remember!  Michael Milken was convicted on felony charges for violating SEC laws, racketeering and his charitable giving.

Not exactly a stellar resume for lauding Wikipedia!  FOLLOW the Money, but also follow the Lineage.

At any rate – we can see from the Money Flow – where Wikipedia stands and why it is in line with the Liberal persuasion of Google and Facebook, why it utilizes it’s influence to create a burgeoning false agenda and how it specifically targets that design.

Buyer – Beware.

Liberal Universities – The Coup of Private Foundations

The money trail of funding within our most prestigious universities provides an outline of demonstrative control, manipulation, and agenda.  Foundations are the forefront of that agenda, and each foundation’s board of trustees controls the agenda.  “We will give you money if you incorporate this curriculum, this ideology, and this methodology into the school.”  Thus assuring that the end product, the mind and thought process of the graduates, is aligned within a particular mode.  It is the ultimate mind control.  And Taxpayers Fund it.

Harvard is a liberal elite university that embodies such an agenda.  The Center For Education Policy Research is an adjunct to Harvard that cites three pillars:   research, tools and talent, and networks for sharing.   Basically, if we Follow The Money, our educators and school boards are the tools subject to the puppet masters who tell them what to think, what to teach, and what to advocate.  Within this, the Universities churn out more pawns aligned in a single policy thought who will become the next new politician telling more pawns the follies of what has become an imaginary world.

Major funders and Trustees include: Bill Gates, Hewlett Foundation, Ford Foundation, Bloomberg, Hecksher Foundation, Laura and John Arnold Foundation, Bank of America, IBM, Austria’s Jabobs Foundation, The Atlantic Philanthropies, and the Walton family Foundation are among a few of the many contributors.  Their causes typically include;  global warming, planned parenthood, open society, Obamacare, population control, open borders, and “education reform”.

A few notable Foundations would seem to skew from the typical agenda’s of social policy reform.   One such organization is the Smith Richardson Foundation which is focused on international security and foreign policy, monetary, fiscal and tax policy, and a ‘global political change’.   One of the Trustees is a Hollywood film producer, Bill Stetson III whose credits include active membership in the Creative coalition, an advocacy group for Hollywood Liberals.

A quick look at their Form 990 for 2015 indicates some notable recipients of their grants which average roughly 4% of their total value:

  1. Center For A New America Security; CEO = Victoria Newland.They boast that a number of their employees were hired on by the Obama Administration and their experts are routinely quoted by NYT, CNN, WAPO, NBC, NPR, Jon Stewart and more.  Notable speakers have included;  Hillary, Gen Martin Dempsey, Madelaine Albright and Gen Petraeus.  They advocate ‘neoliberalism’.
  2. Institute For The Study of War; President = Kimberly Kagan, whose brother-in-law is married to Victoria Nuland.She was an instrumental source for advocating the surge/war in Iraq and a restructuring military in Afghanistan.  She works closely with Gen. Petraeus.  Chairman of the Board includes retired Gen Jack Keane.
  3. Center For Strategic and International Studies; President = John Hamre who served as Secretary of Defense under Bill Clinton, and worked closely with Obama to develop US cyber warfare. Notable cross political party speakers include;  John McCain, Henry Kissinger, Sam Nunn, Hillary, and Leon Panetta.  Controversial funding sources have included the governments of the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Norway, Germany, and China.

While Harvard is by no means alone in this ‘gifting schematic’ that is more closely related to blackmail, they are the Creme Brulee.  Other notables include:   Brown University, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado College, Cornell, Columbus, Cambridge, George Washington, Georgetown, John Hopkins, Oxford, Sacred Heart University, Stanford, Syracuse, University of Calgary, University of North Caroline, Yale, Notre Dame, Universities of Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Southern California, South Florida, etc…

The “education” curriculum is created to advance the ‘non-partisan’ thinking of these various non-profits whose Liberal and Progressive Global agenda is mapped within the guidelines of an Open Society, a Communist Globalization and an elite whose tentacles have reached across nearly every nation on earth.  Each of these Foundations have wealth exceeding  $500 million to $150 billion.  Follow The Money.

Attempting to attack or replace professors at the universities and in our high schools has about the same effect as treating cancer with Tylenol, it might stay the head-ache, but the cancer will continue to metastasize.

Hungary recently outlawed the Soros funded and sponsored university in Budapest, but a fight ensues for reinstatement.  We can’t simply shut down these universities across the US, we can’t regulate funding which typically is associated with a coercive requirement.  The overwhelming majority of teachers and professors are atheists, are Liberal, are intolerant – this coup has already been forged.

One way the Federal government can defrost the coup is to simply deny any more federal funding for private institutions.  Private Universities in the US are overwhelmingly Liberal.  The funding is typically obscured in the Research and Development area of the school’s programs.  But those programs bump the reputation of a school and its ability to attract more students.   The annual Federal funding is topping over $1 billion per university.

A large percentage of the R&D is for the development of more vaccines for the pharma industry. This means that while Big Pharma is a slush of profits, a slush of executive compensation greed, it is actually enabled and supported by Federal funding, or taxpayer dollars.  And to support the continuation of federal funding, states like California make vaccines mandatory.  The cycle is complete; the population control mandate of the elite is funded by the taxpayers whose bodies are now replete with aluminum, mercury, arsenic, formaldehyde, ethanol, and preservatives, while private industries and elite individuals generate more and more personal wealth.

An example of federal misappropriation of funding can be found in Planned Parenthood – or as the R&D describes it, ‘reproductive health’.  In reality it is eugenics.

If we are going to cease the agenda and reverse the Liberal coup, Federal Funding of R&D at Universities has to end.  Federal Funding of Private Foundations – has to end.  When we follow The Money, it becomes clear that the coup, the Liberal Agenda has been funded by you and I, and that’s why they are laughing.
