BREXIT – Sharia Law and Facebook

Under Sharia Law, morality police are tasked with enforcing religious obeyance, dress code enforcement, and the promotion of virtue.   Punishment varies by country and can range from public admonishment to jail time and torture.  

Facebook’s Zuckerberg is prowling the globe demanding morality policing of all social media platforms.  Under the UK government Department of Digital Culture of Media and Sport, the UK is the newest country to adopt censorship propaganda on behalf of the Cabal media.   The new White Paper outlines specific ‘codes of practice’ including child sex, revenge porn, sale of illegal goods and terrorist content.  But it is the ambiguous territory that is alarming:  harassment, hate crimes, trolling, fake news and disinformation.

And then there is this: “blocking harmful websites”.

What is Disinformation?  “False information spread to deliberately deceive”.   It originated in Russia and was coined by Joseph Stalin to reference – “manipulation of a nation’s intelligence system through the injection of credible, but misleading data”.

Interestingly, this campaign of ‘disinformation’ that was initially levied against Trump and Russia has now massively backfired putting a healthy number of Democrats and intelligence officials at risk of prosecution, according to Attorney General Barr.   While some pundits within the media consider the betrayal to have been perpetrated by a relatively small group of people, that statement is misleading and likely quite false.   In fact, it had to involve key intelligence agencies within the US government.

How quickly we forget:  In 2016 and 2017, a coordinated report put out by the major news outlets stated that 17 intelligence agencies confirmed the Russia collusion was real.   This statement was later corrected by two media outlets who stated that in fact it was only the FBI, NSA and CIA.   But if they confirmed as fact something that has since been proven to be wrong – the media and intelligence offices were spreading “Disinformation” and Propaganda.  Which should be censored according to Zuckerberg.  And the UK.

The total budget for these three agencies is roughly $33 billion, and the number of employees is around 65,000.  The Obamas and Clintons also quoted the false 17 number.  But the fact remains, these three agencies are the most prominent within the government and thus should be held to a higher accounting for their statements and spreading propaganda.

While Facebook has hired it’s own media morality police, the UK is considering two possibilities; some unknown unbiased watchdog, or Oxfam.  While finding an unbiased watchdog likely means a neoliberal Soros protégé, Oxfam is hardly above reproach.

Oxfam is a multinational NGO with a hefty log of criticisms with regard to its operations, political activity, charitable transparency, engorged executive salaries, and sexual misconduct allegations.   In 2011, Oxfam was accused of “being unduly influenced by the priorities of the media, of providing inaccurate information to the press (“stories featuring aid projects which often rely on dubious numbers provided by the organizations”) and of perpetuating negative stereotypes which “have the potential to influence policy”.

In January 2013, Oxfam was nominated for the Charity of the Year award at the British Muslim Awards. They didn’t win.  The British Muslim Awards is an annual award ceremony that honours the success and achievements of Britain’s Muslim individuals, groups and businesses, as in – Oxfam.

As usual, the Oxfam morality police considered by the UK are immoral, unethical, biased, prejudiced and have been accused of fulfilling one singular charitable need – its own existence.

Whether compared to the Sharia morality police or to Communist style censorship, the UK decision has been made as the news is flogged with BREXIT and other topics find no headline.  Perhaps I should qualify and rephrase, FAKEBREXIT.

The BREXIT that is and was and shall never be.

In a bold shift, Theresa May has pushed the delay until the end of the year while publically stating she will not resign until a deal is in place.    The announcement is in complete contradiction to her previous calls for a June deadline and her summer resignation.   The shift comes on the heels of meetings with both Merkel and Macron who are defacto spokespeople for the Socialist/Marxist Jean Claude Juncker and the UN.

The obvious collusion is likely further pressure from a Germany whose economic prosperity has taken a significant hit in the last two years.   The same Germany that has held the reins and implemented extensive Socialist/Marxist policies.   The same Germany that will be required to pick up the significant $$$$ slack that the UK exit would entail.   The same Germany that has systematically denied every single deal presented.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is demanding an EU Union that is essentially a non-BREXIT and the Tories seem to think that keeping May alive in Parliament through the year will jeopardize their upcoming re-elections.  No one seems intent on making BREXIT – instead it has degraded to a political fist fight worthy of the Poroshenko government in Ukraine with brawls, screaming, fist fights, and aggressively foul language.

The alignment of the delay to coincide with the 2020 elections in the US is likely not coincidental.   Whether the UK structures shift further right or further left is the real stall point.  Given Theresa May’s rather left leaning conservatism, her resignation would open the door to more staunchly right aligned politicians and their ideologies, not to mention a clean BREXIT that could erode Labour and Socialism.

Whether it is BREXIT or morality police, the UK has crawled ever further into the black web of the cabal who are desperately trying to revive a failing cult club.  Censorship via Oxfam is so incredibly perverse, it highlights the degradation that the left, May, Merkel, Maurice le-Macaroon, and Juncker feverishly drool for as they exit left holding their Panama Paper tax haven certificates.

FYI:  Oxfam is one of the NGO’s aiding the migrant caravans targeting the US/Mexican border.   They have been vocal in demanding human rights protection for all migrants.  They have provided financial assistance to the migrants.  They have designated funds to support migrant rights organizations.  Oxfam is just one, albeit vastly powerful and highly funded, organization that partners with the Soros Open Society Foundation to create chaos in the US through massive “ILLEGAL”  immigration.

BREXIT: Theresa May Sold The UK

The Theresa May BREXITS are toast, have been toast, and will be forever toast, because that was ‘ordained’.  BREXIT will be undermined whether by internal chaos, or external manipulation, the UK is going down.  That was the – Agenda.

And Theresa May agreed.

It is an interesting question, ‘what would be so heinous as to scare you to dissolve your entire Country?’ That you would sacrifice scores, and possibly entire freedom, because of an existential threat.

And that threat would be very personal.

It would seem, Theresa May took the threat, and agreed to destroy her Country.

Merkel, May and countless others, agreed to sacrifice their country for the sake of their sanctification. Which means they have to believe in their twisted minds that either, a) they will go to heaven for saving those who were threatened to be assassinated,  or  b) neither women having children is pertinent.  Or c) they are aliens from he Axwar Galaxy and have no emotion… just KIDDING!  Grow one!

It is too convenient that both Merkel and May have made it known that they will resign before the end of their term, and abdicate – essentially.

Not exactly the best fodder for a ‘legacy’.  And legacy is prominent in the game of ‘Power’.

But that power is faltering, failing, their glow is graying.

The deal was inked the moment the UK voted for BREXIT.  Destroying it internally is always preferable.  But that didn’t fit the – Agenda.  And so numerous polls were conducted that all revealed that the majority of the UK populace had ‘changed their minds’.   Therefore, a second vote would be mandated because obviously the consensus had changed – radically.

At what point would you cave?  What would it take?

To save a child?   A spouse?   A mother?   At what point would you sell your entire country for a threat?  I can’t answer.   I can’t imagine.

But I would hope it would be significant.  Worth it.

Perhaps my idealism is surfacing, but I would think that an inherent good does exist and would take control.   Although, given the insight into our dark side, it is not without possibility to expect nothing but the very worst one can imagine.   So it is ‘difficult’ to hold to hope.  But I do persist!

The UK most certainly stands at a precipice.  Historically, that may redefine, but for now, it is a symbolically huge sentiment.  If the UK pulls out, the likelihood of the countries on the fence, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Czech republic, etc…, would follow suit.  Ultimately, the collapse of the EU as a conjoined entity would fail.  An economic spiral would be likely to ensue.   Think Venezuela.

And in its most dire of economic devastation, a hero would step in to save the country and all it’s people.  Only the ‘hero’ might actually be the wolf.   But the sheep have no clue.   They have been taught, indoctrinated into doing and believing whatever they are told…

And the dare ya statement would be then – to what extent has this propaganda been fueled and created?  What can we hold as truth?

NO one seriously doubts the corruption of Theresa May in this BREXFAIL.  But she didn’t create this, it was a very militaristic coordination that required intense planning and alliance.

“The EU will demand a heavy price from Theresa May for her failed BREXIT negotiations…”

  1. Theresa May will – pay nothing.But the UK Taxpayers certainly – will.
  2. b) The guardian of the gates EU always planned to nay anything Theresa May. That was their sole directive.
  3. c) Theresa May is obviously being blackmailed by some source for ‘something’. Enough so that she would sell her entire country.  Hopefully that something is worth – a country.

EU African Colonial Reparations

With the global flap in the wind Climate Change Fund errr, flapping, the EU has found a new and improved way to prop up their financing the redistribution of wealth agenda – “Colonialism Reparations”.

Another good reason for the UK BREXIT given they could be one of the biggest EU targets…

The gist of the bill is based on EU Afrophobic attacks.  The term, Afrophobic, conjures up  unjust prejudicial and racial ideologies in line with Islamaphobia.  Except that Afrophobia is related to ‘anyone of African descent’.   Each ‘national authority’ would thus be required to provide proper “education, housing, health, criminal justice, political participation and migration”.

The reasoning behind the gem of the bill is that the EU created colonialism and slavery throughout Africa and must be held accountable.

What this bill does not seem to address is the fact that hate crimes can occur against any race or culture including Jews, Whites, Christians, women, etc…  Therefore, creating an African agenda is actually quite blatantly – racial and prejudicial.

What is the real purpose?

  1. It opens the door to possible reparations being made to African states in the form of monetary aid.  Given the fall of funding for Climate Change that was being filtered to Africa, and the need for infrastructure to support the current colonialism land grabs, Africa has lost significant $$$$.   As the cabal took control of large swathes of land in Africa for pennies per hector, pushing out the local farmers, they required infrastructure in order to market their new machinized farms.   The Paris Accord Green Fund flapped, and money dried up.  Thus, a new agenda needed to be created to address the cabal’s need to have funding provided by taxpayers instead of from their own wallets.
  2. It creates an even larger welfare budget within individual EU countries that would become the burden of viable taxpayers further spiraling the EU economy into oblivion.
  3. It demonizes nationals as being the aggressors and victimizes immigrants further suppressing the criminal activities that are decimating entire cities throughout Europe.

The EU Commission rarely operates on a level that is not embedded in an alternate agenda.  And this instance is no different than any other.  The media coverage is slim with respect to hate crimes perpetrated by immigrant Afrikaners.  Most governments, specifically Germany’s, have adopted rules for quashing anything related to immigrant crimes.  The police are forced to release perpetrators, and statistically, they are prohibited from making any arrest which could skew the crime rates.

According to Germany’s Deutsche Welle, there were 800 attacks on Muslims last year.  By contrast, the first nine months of 2018 saw 1000 attacks on Jews.  There are roughly 117,000 Jews in Germany, while there are roughly one million Afrikaners (statistics are not available because Germany does not believe in profiling – numbers are based on an estimate done in 2013 before the massive immigration).

Similarly, in France it is illegal to conduct a census that queries race or color, therefore a proper statistic that would qualify as either Islamaphobia or Afrophobic is completely and utterly impossible.  Making the EU Commission’s bill nonsensical and without a shred of basis.

In addition, given Germany doesn’t profile, the number of attacks on Afrikaners could include black on black which would not be racial at all.

The agenda is obviously far from the purported EU Commission statement.  But as we watch Merkel and the growing possibility of her early resignation, it will be interesting to see where she chooses to reside as her country falls…

Russia Sanctions – Meaningless Propaganda.

Germany is defending the need for NATO in order to defend the EU democracies against a Russian invasion. Although Russia has given no intelligencia impression of any desire to attack the EU, the narrative serves a purpose.

Germany and her counterparts do not want to foot the defense bill, and given NATO and the UN have been subsidized by the US for decades, it serves a financial purpose rather than a defense purpose.

In that vein, Germany is also defying the Russian sanctions to punish the evil Putin by opening up a Mercedes car plant near Moscow.   The hypocrisy couldn’t be more abject.   Praising the German-Russian partnership, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmaier said that he saw great potential for future cooperation with Russia despite “political differences.”

Despite Merkel attempting to justify the trade move, the fact remains, it is all about money. Trade between Russia and Germany amounts to roughly 62billion Euro annually.  The farce of sanctions is thus defined.  It is a political move to create the appearance of doing something to appease constituents who have been led to believe a demonizing fake media agenda.

Cuba.  No different.  Despite levying sanctions for decades to oppose the communist regime, tourism continues to be a source of – money.   Canada is the largest source of tourism revenue, US is second and Germany is third.  Italy, France, Spain, the UK and even Russia enjoy the pristine beaches.  But a large sector of the tourism is actually health related given that the government shifted a tremendous amount of funds to that sector following the sanctions.   While doctors make less than waiters, their education and drive to cure rather than medicate is a sought after industry.

Germany sought to side-step the Iran sanctions in order to create a trade bolster to their economy.  And now Venezuela is finding itself in the middle of a power struggle from outside countries as the frenzy to capitalize on a collapsed economy provides huge potential to make money.

Syria is a case in point. Create a fake war.  Destroy an entire country.  And then vie for the contracts to rebuild, create a new economy, and walk away with a flush wallet.   If a country’s government is not willing to board that plane, the country stands to become the next victim.

Citizens will protest, citizens will cry foul, but in the end, that foul is what supports their continued luxuries and necessities.

Until a new mental acumen can devise a way to deviate from this system that has been in play since the beginning of time, we will be subject to its consequences.  Until this layer of global Swampland can be eradicated, they will continue to reap the rewards their inherent greed demands.  The mindset is always – no matter what a person has, it is never enough.   A millionaire wants to be a billionaire, and a billionaire wants to rule the world because billions will buy such.  Greed, boredom, and a bizarre belief that the pawns within this world are there to protect and die for the Queen, remains the monarchial mentality that was and is and is to be.

Until – we say – no.

Merkel is simply looking for a means to prop up a cracking economy in order to give the appearance she is Germany when in fact she is the same Merkel that destroyed Germany.   In her last and final days before resigning, her legacy is at stake, her honor must be upheld, and respect must be reattained.   By any means.

Germany has historically been the instigator of our worst global wars – always within the guise of propping up a cracked economy.

Venezuela: Mergers and Acquisitions – a Swamp and Cabal Chess Game

Venezuela is a hotbed, rife with political accusations, alliances, and – oil. Recognized as having the world’s largest proven reserves of oil, Venezuela’s crisis serves to make it a viable target for the three global powers; US, Russia and China. While oil used to be the new ‘black gold’, as individual countries expanded their resource production, black gold became more akin to black silver.   So what’s all the hubbub to control Venezuela really about?

In 1950, Venezuela was the world’s 4th wealthiest country per capita! Despite numerous natural resources at their disposal, the economy of Venezuela concentrated heavily on oil production. When the shortages in the late 1970’s parlayed to a glut in the 1980’s, Venezuela’s government failed to diversify the economy to balance this shift.   Exports accounted for nearly 17% of the GDP and oil represented 95% of the exports.   When the price of crude tanked, Venezuela was left holding an empty nozzle.

Inflation took off, poverty increased, shortages of basic products became rampant, and Hugo Chavez’ solution was to institute welfare reforms and subsidies.   Instead of diversifying the economy, Chavez further spiraled any chance for a recovery by instituting Socialist ideologies. Fast forward and the Maduro Socialist regime is now facing a collapsed society with inflation rates at 2.3 million%.   Population below poverty rate was 20% in 2015 and is estimated to be 87%-90% today.

Yes! Venezuela is in Crisis – and it was NOT manufactured by the US. It has been in a downward spiral for nearly 40 years.

Despite rich land, Venezuela’s agriculture production is abysmal. Foreign companies have fled, and despite rich resources of iron, ore, gold, diamonds, coal, nickel and bauxite, production has fallen to a drizzle. In 2014, General Motors moved out due to a lack of equipment and supplies.

With the US being Venezuela’s biggest trade partner, China slowly gained traction under the Maduro regime plowing billions into the destitute economy and climbing to second place. Russia doesn’t even make the top ten tier in either imports or exports.   But Russia has taken a significant look at what the collapse does provide – an opportunity.

While Maduro was not ‘aligned’ with the US given his dictatorship moral, Venezuela did represent a significant trade partner with $3.45 billion in US imports (38% of Venezuela’s total) and $11.6billion in US exports (42% of Venezuela’s total).

So the US has an obvious economic agenda and a prosperous Venezuela is good juju for the US.  Hence the country and its assets are prime target practice for whoever lands their flag.  The US telling Russia to get out is like telling the Federal Reserve to dismantle… ain’t goin’ to happen.

Maduro leveled his country without any ‘assistance’ from anyone, except maybe Chavez who is dead.

Russia’s interest, China’s interest, are simply analogous to vulture business deals; an opportunity presents itself, advantage is established.   From a business standpoint it is similar to mergers and acquisitions. But the US had ‘first’ interest given our trade partnership, and maintaining that level requires either helping Maduro move from a Socialist regime to a capitalist one, or finding someone who will without being assassinated in the process.

Venezuela is one of only four countries that utilizes electronic voting machines for its entire electorate. Manufactured by SmartMatic, the machines have come under scrutiny for being easily hacked so as to manipulate an election.   The current Chairman of SmartMatic is Lord Mark Malloch-Brown of the UK.   Malloch-Brown is a former UK government minister, UN Deputy Secretary General with specialties in the World Bank, and former journalist for our very own Rothschild syndicate, The Economist.   He has spent most of his career ‘advising’ politicians in their presidential campaigns including; Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Columbia, Philippines and Venezuela.

Malloch-Brown has been a vocal critic of Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and the US at large, while being praised by the likes of John Podesta…   Malloch was the Vice Chair for Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Institute.

Today, Malloch is co-chair of the Board of Trustees for the International Crisis Group.   The current President of the International Crisis Group is Robert Malley who was an advisor and special assistant to President Bill Clinton, and special ISIS adviser to Obama.

It was SmartMatic machines that were used in Obama’s 2012 re-election. And in 2015, Malloch-Brown made a presentation before the Atlantic Council to support modernized voting technology—namely touchscreen machines and optical scanners—which are already in use in 307 counties and 16 states in the U.S.  Elections are rigged.  Attempting to defer the risk to a programmable hacked machine is a sales tactic.  We now know that 307 counties and 16 states – are rigged.  We also know that SmartMatic machines are used in the UK.  Smartmatic now operates under the holding company, SGO Corporation Limited.

The Board of Directors of SGO includes David Giampaolo.  He is also a member of the Global Partners Council at the Institute of New Economic Thinking (INET). Founded by James Balsillie, William Janeway and George Soros, INET is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working in promotion of new economic theories to address social issues such as wealth inequality and environmental sustainability.

Again we find that the Swampland of the US is intricately entwined in the Swampland of the UK with PM May leading the anti-BREXIT BREXIT tribulation into the fiery pits of Gog and Magog, while the Cabal, not the US, intervenes and manipulates coups and election tabulation.

Open Democracy: Dark Money NGO

Open Democracy, a UK political website, has released a damning report claiming that Trump and his evangelical conservative dark money has poured $51 million into election meddling in the EU since 2008!  

The list of contributors linked to Trump include: Billy Graham Association, American Center for Law and Justice, Alliance Defending Freedom, Human Life International, Focus on the Family, Family Watch International, etc… etc… etc… The recipients of this egregious dark money would seem to be a secret given Open Democracy makes no actual conclusion.

Open Democracy is funded by the Soros Open Society Foundation, the Ford Foundation and The National Endowment For Democracy. Some of the dark money contributors are listed as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Given the SPLC is currently undergoing intense internal legal ranglings for sexual harassment and gender prejudice, the Open Democracy allegation makes sense.   It is called ‘retribution’ – vengeance – tit-for-tat.

Fake News. Where are the media police?

The attempt to demonize Trump has taken a new shift in attempting to link him to these various Christian conservative groups which lobby like every NGO for their agenda.   To suddenly determine that lobbying is somehow nefarious would be akin to asserting communist government control over everything – including the Open Society Foundation, Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, etc.

So what is the point of this article?

Open Democracy was founded by Anthony Barnett, whose latest hit piece on Trump detailed his collusion with Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, Google, BREXIT, Farage,

WikiLeaks, and of course, Russia.

Barnett founded Charter 88, a Liberal Socialist British ‘pressure group’ that advocated for constitutional and electoral reform.   Charter 88 merged with New Politics Network in 2007.   New Politics Network was the legal successor to the Communist Party of Great Britain.

Open Democracy is funded by Socialist/Communist NGO’s, and Alliance Defending Freedom is funded by Capitalist/Christian NGO’s.   The Socialist Cabal has control of the mainstream media, has taken over once conservative sites, is censoring social media and now is focusing their attacks on NGO’s. Given Trump is their biggest nemesis, they assert his alignment with everything they attack because it furthers the propaganda.

In essence, what we have is a circle of Communists crying foul because the corrupt Soros funded Southern Poverty Law Center is being tagged with extensive lawsuits and thus they need to reach their tentacles across the spectrum of conservatism while somehow attempting to create a demonizing link between Trump…Putin…Bannon…and Jay Sekelow, Trump’s attorney.

If the American people have awoken to the true criminal thread, perhaps the citizens of the EU have not. A last ditch effort to kill BREXIT and vilify EU countries that align with the alt right parties is simply that, a last ditch wherein the crumbling infrastructure of the Cabal falls.

In its scathing report, Open Democracy is attempting to create a schism not just relegated to left vs right politics, but Christian vs everyone else.   Dark money refers to any money spent by any NGO in politics.   Before Trump, it may have swayed a few, but in today’s world it merely serves to highlight desperation.

EU Approves Censorship – Article 13

The EU Parliament passed Article 13/17 censoring and regulating internet freedom of speech in a vote approved by 348 MEPs, with 274 voting against, and 36 abstaining. 

The law proposes to filter all content on its way to the web to ensure no rights are being violated.  That means that content is delayed, content is filtered by artificial intelligence, and AI determines what is appropriate.  It goes without saying that AI is the least intelligent – intelligence.  It does not understand humor, or sarcasm, made up words, or parody.

It is designed to push out any platform that hasn’t the resources to meet the criteria leaving the giants; Facebook, Google, and YouTube to rule and decide what information the EU public will be allowed to know.  While the giants feign anger, as in how dare they, they already have in place algorythms to filter out unwanted conservative news, bloggers and sites. It will likely not have much of an effect on them.  In contrast, small sites that don’t have the resources to censor will be the object of the law. Recently, these alternative sites have gained traction for doing just that – allowing freedom of speech.

The EU Socialist Marxists have found a backdoor means of putting them out of business while cracking down even further on anything deemed unacceptable.

Sites can still show ‘snippets’ of news but will have to pay above a certain word count.   Speech that is deemed ‘problematic’ by the internet police and AI will be taken down and if not done in a ‘timely’ matter criminal charges and hefty fines will be levied.

Non-profits are exempt.

The EU parties that supported this censorship include:  Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, Social Democratic Party, Christian Democratic Union, Labour Party and European Peoples Party Group.   The European People’s Party is led by Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker.  In other words it is a manifesto instituted by Socialist/Marxist regimes and opposed by Nationalist and populist parties.   The brainchild of Germany.

In the UK a Catholic journalist is being investigated by the police for mis-identifying a transgender person.  She used the wrong pronoun, and that ‘hate speech’ is now a criminal offense and considered to be racist.

The EU has already rather strict laws in place with regard to what they classify as ‘hate speech’, including specifying something generalized such as – Marxists are bad.   Instead we are told to imply rather than state, such as – many are of the opinion that ideologies that applied their roots in the Soviet Union era after the ‘fall’ of the Tsar and until the fall of the Soviet Union, were based on a different meme of thinking…

SNORE.

Mocking is also not allowed. Satire is considered in bad taste and anyone engaging will be found guilty, their site taken down, and possible fines imposed.  Criticizing hate speech is also considered ‘hate speech’.

Ultimately, the fines and determinations will become so costly, so rampant, that the giants will simply block everything except pretty pictures of food, puppies and landscapes.

Saying “Boo” – might be construed as prejudicial to ghosts, or believed to be inciting violence by goblins. Hate Speech.

These are the rules imposed on all blogs and media (with the exception of non-profits) within the boundaries of our great allies in the EU – the Socialist/Marxists.  The allies that never were.  The allies in Germany that instigated WWI and WWII.   The allies that we were deluded into believing were our friends, but in essence were building the new world according to the promulgations of the failed Order of Hitler.  

That alliance was the very first propaganda employed by the EU – a wolf shepherding the sheep to the cliff.

Mueller Investigation Shifts to NY Attorney General

Any longer, reading Fox News is not much different than reading the New York Times or Washington Post.  It is fodder for bloggers.

The rallying cry among Democrats and Hollywoodites is that:   ‘no one is above the law’!   Err, except for Democrats and Hollywoodites.

Barbara Streisand recently supported just that concept when she defended Michael Jackson’s child abuse and pedophilia charges claiming the victims were now doing just fine, married and having children of their own.  Therefore the crime didn’t exist…

The AG of New York in conjunction with Mueller is going after the Trump Foundation.  But what happened to the Clinton Foundation taking money for bribes, spending only 9% on actual charity, hiring Chelsea for an undisclosed salary, destroying Haiti, on and on Ad nauseam?  And therein lies the rub, and Americans will rightly call foul and subject the slew of corrupt foundations to similar probes.

The problem with opening Pandora’s Box is trying to close it when the locusts are Democrats.  And that is the problem with the New York investigation.    It is similar to the Panama Paper Caper escapade that resulted in – nothing.  Despite the fact that numerous politicians and Hollywoodites were reportedly utilizing the offshore bonanza to hide money so as to evade taxes, while simultaneously supporting tax increases, it faded into obscurity.

It would seem that these law enforcement officials have become so obsessed, they have forgotten what their true job description entails.  Attorney General:

  • Represent the United States in legal matters.
  • Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.
  • Furnish advice and opinions, formal and informal, on legal matters to the Presidentand the Cabinet and to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the government, as provided by law.
  • Make recommendations to the Presidentconcerning appointments to federal judicial positions and to positions within the Department, including U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.
  • Represent or supervise the representation of the United States Government in the Supreme Court of the United States and all other courts, foreign and domestic, in which the United States is a party or has an interest as may be deemed appropriate.
  • Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order.

When the US Justice Department spends two years investigating a sitting President, instead of providing advice For The President, it would seem that Department has relinquished its duty.   Is derelict in its duty.  And creates a void for its future existence.

What happens to actual criminals?

In fact, they, the criminals, have room to breath knowing that resources are sequestered elsewhere.

As the Democrats defend  the shift laid upon the New York Attorney General to find criminal activity in the Trump family, they subject themselves to a similar upending!  It is common knowledge that hundreds of Foundations and NGO’s are corrupt to the core – most lobbying for Socialism and democrat causes.

Despite the obvious obsession to victimize one man while the criminal conduct of hundreds of democrats should now be the focus of investigation and indictment, they seem to have hung their intellect on a hook outside the door.   Not only will this upset the possibility of a Democrat victory in 2020, it could very well be their end.

The unintended result of the Mueller probe has been to find illegal collusion between the FBI, Clinton, and Obama and his administration.  The unintended finding of corruption could spill into Biden’s campaign for President.   And could dispel any chance of a last minute announcement by Michelle Obama as well.

Retribution is likely.   As comes found out, there are no second chances.

Just as Hillary went ballistic when she discovered her Presidential win did not occur, Obama and Biden will in all probability be ransacking the House for their abject ineptitude at getting ‘caught’.   Because, despite the MSM attempt to detract from the result of the Mueller investigation results, the fact remains that Trump now has the upper hand to indict.

It is not unlike the Nixon attitude, albeit the Democrat Party in this instance;  The ultimate thought was that Nixon didn’t deserve to to be President because he got caught. It was acknowledged that politicians overwhelmingly did what Nixon did, but his stupidity was his crime.

The slew of Democrats implicated in corruption and collusion will be called out – except it just might be their fellow Democrats who do the calling out in retribution for their failure.

While Trump can do what TRUMP does best – Make America Great Again!

Veteran Administration- Corrupt To The Core

Much attention has recently been logged on veterans, veteran suicides, and the Department of Veteran Affairs.   While there seems to be an ever lacking source of funds for veterans – that would not apply to the employees of the Department of Veteran Affairs.

With an annual budget of $180 billion and nearly 378,000 employees, they still decry fowl as they lay open an empty proverbial wallet…   And the efforts of a relatively quick research expedition might answer – why.

Factoids:  There are 150 VA hospitals, 820 VA clinics, 300 counseling centers, and 5.5 to 6 million patients.  Wait time for a medical decision is anywhere from 120 days to a year.  Whoa cowboy.  Brakes on.   Socialist, medicine requires a ‘one year’ wait list.   Similar to other nationalized, socialized medicine in Social countries. 80% of veterans are white, 11% are black and 6% are Hispanic – by comparison, the US census registers; 12.7% black, 17.8% Hispanic and 61.8% white.   A bit skewed.

How many of the 378,000 employees are doctors and nurses?

Apparently, according to the Government Accounting Office – they don’t know.  They believe there may be at least 11,000 doctors, and roughly 80,000 nurses and nurse assistants.  That would leave 287,000 VA employees unaccounted for, or 76%.  The doctor to patient ratio extrapolates to 1 doctor for every 545 VA patients.  The national average of doctor to patient ratio is roughly 1000 to 2500 patients per doctor.

Obviously we have a problem Houston.  The VA employs 2-4 times as many doctors as the public sector and yet is abysmally deficient in care, wait times are catastrophic, but wait – there is another interesting phenomena… pay scale.

Payscales of RN’s and doctors vary by state.  In the public world, California nurses have the highest average pay rate of $102,000.  The lowest is South Dakota at roughly $57,000 full time.   But within the VA, the payscale for California nurses is significantly higher with base pay reaching $164,200.  In addition, since they are government employees, their pay is supplemented with full pension derivatives and a host of benefits unavailable to public sector RN’s.

It is no different for doctors.  A ‘staff physician’ in the VA can make upwards of $264,000, in the real world that salary is roughly $190,000 to $214,000 which would not include that lovely lifetime pension.

With inflated salaries, benefits and pensions absorbing the budget, it is no wonder veterans are short changed.  It used to be that the government pension was to support a significantly ‘lower’ wage compared to the public sector.   Skews skewer.

Why are doctors unable to cope with their patient load when it is roughly ½ to ¼ of the real world?   That would be called ‘nationalized medicine’.  It is defined by labor unions who likely tally the number of hours a military doctor or nurse may work, divided by the infinite number of holidays, sick days, vacation days, and break times interspersed into this very tawdry Nationalized Medicare For All – system.

But even more catastrophic is the fact that roughly 76% of the VA employees are not medical at all, but likely ‘administrative’.   How much of the $180 billion is spent to officiate…the administrators is an unknown because these departments are not transparent.   Government accounting 101.  Make it so ridiculously convoluted that a public center CPA, such as I was, can not make heads or tails of the train wreck without spending wayyyy to much of my time.   This is the true hypocrisy.

In 2015, the estimated cost for medical care for veterans was $55.4 billion out of a total budget of $164 billion.   One Third.

But the VA benefits are not used just for medical care, they are supposed to provide Home loan Guarantee, Insurance, Vocational Rehab, Education, Disability Compensation, Pensions, and burial and maintenance benefits.  That’s a whole lot of Socialist Spending.

The backlog that has received the most criticism is the agency designated to determine if a veteran is even qualified to receive disability benefits.   Mismanagement is monumental.  In 2009, President Bush proposed that 86.5% of the total budget be allocated to medical.  As in VA Hospitals.  The result?   Cost overruns have doubled and quadrupled initial budgets pushing deadlines for construction out years.  Unions have infiltrated and demanded continued pension and benefits for veterans convicted of crimes.   Dead people still receive compensation.  And the VA really has little idea who they employ, how many, in what capacity, and for what purpose.  The system has been broken for decades, and yet each time the train wreck reaches the public and media, the result is to throw more money at ‘it’ and thus ‘away’.

This is the finest example of “Medicare For All”.

The New and Improved GI Bill gave 100% education scholarships to veterans who had served “three years”!   And veterans who have served 10 years can transfer all their entitlements to their spouse or children.

Drip.  Drip.

The VA’s last published Freedom of Information data was 2012-2013 – and it earned a grade of D.  What the HECK?

Who is at fault?

Bureacracy.  The Swamp.  In the Government, a Budget is a request based on the use of the previous budget.  If all the budget was used, and more is needed, no one questions the use.  And so we see ridiculous cost overruns for green atrium aquariums and architects who envision the Taj Mahal in designing the Hospitals that are not available for actual use because the tile was imported from Sri Lanka and got lost on the way as it was transported by a Chinese company that had to divert shipment to Venezuela…

And all the hospital equipment?   It was inadvertently sent to Germany via The Netherlands where it was offloaded and trucked to the Ukraine so that Chocolate King, Poroshenko, can resell it to the US via Iran.  At a premium.

While the veterans die in the parking lot.

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?
