President Trump: Pentagon Puppets For Cabal

President Trump made a recent comment in which he stated that top generals in the Pentagon are just puppets for the arms manufacturing stalwarts – which would include Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Boeing and General Dynamics.   Of course the fact that this is true seems to garner little attention despite these megolyth industries backing Hillary in 2016 with tit-for-tat contracts.   Which would have included Mark Esper given he was a lobbyist working on behalf of Raytheon at the time.   Esper’s JOB was to garner government contracts worth mega billions so as to make the company more profitable…   And Clinton was more than happy to comply.

Esper wasn’t alone – John Podesta’s daughter Heather was also an appointed lobbyist who helped to lock in and bundle massive deals including one with Qatar – the same Qatar that has been backing congresswomen Omar and others.

The Qatar deal was worth $26 billion.

Of course weapons stockpiled are of little use when you can instigate a war instead!   Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, Eritrea, Turkey, became the means to justify the end. National Endowment for Democracy, NED, was more than happy to comply in their orange coups or Color Revolutions.   In fact, it is highly likely they are behind the US Color Revolution called Black Lives Matter with help from some highly trained mercenaries that infiltrate and incite.

The June 2020 Event stipulated on NED’s website features:

  1. Laura Rosenberger with the Alliance For Securing Democracy. Formed in 2017, their stated mission is to destroy Russia and Putin.   Michael Chertoff serves as a member of the Advisory Council as well as sits on the board of the Atlantic Council.   According to NPR the Atlantic Council is funded by and partners with Burisma Holding Group. Burisma is the Uktrainian company that hired Hunter Biden to do nothing for $1million annual fee – in exchange for a US led, NED – coup.

                      Another spurious donor of the Atlantic Council is Soros Open Society Foundation.

  1. Daniel Arnaudo with the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs – another liberal think tank that has alliances and allegiances with Clinton and Obama in a globalist frame of socialism for all.
  2. Philip Howard from the Oxford Internet Institute who has written a book in which he demonizes President Trump and all conservatives as threats to global democracy. He writes that if it were not for Russian interference – Trump would not have won the election… as in Hillary was supposed to win.

NED is clearly and defiantly central in destabilization across the globe – and in Washington.   Clearly, President Trump has called them to the table as they lay waste to entire countries with their sights set on reclaiming their rightful royalty lineage in the World Order.   And clearly there are two targets for decimation – Russia and America.

While China was well on its way in becoming a central source of mega-revenue for the globalists, President Trump has effectively closed that dyke and left multi-billions on the table.   China had effectively become the new tit-for-tat corruption institute for a Cabal bent on refining its power.   While giving China the ultimate goal of being the number One Global Powerhouse, honor among thieves always meant China was simply another puppet on their stage and fundamentally nonessential to the end game.   A destroyed China is just as good as a destroyed America. One only needs to look at former ‘friends of the Cabal’ to understand there are no friends, only useful idiots.   And Xi’s ego was no exception.

A formidable enemy, President Trump has sought to bite where they are most vulnerable – sex trafficking, child trafficking, and China investments. As a result China is sparking tensions and feuds with India, the virus that was released was an obvious failure that subverted their original plan for a timely release in September when its plague development would be far greater and 1000x more deadly.   Once again, President Trump anticipated their battle and diffused the damage.   According to the Gates TED talk, a pandemic virus was slated for September – 2 months before an election that meant everything to them.   A move that would likely guarantee a globalist/Cabal win.

Their nonessential candidate, Joe Biden, would appear to be driven by one motive self preservation. Jill Biden’s motive would seem to be protection of her son, Hunter, for which she would sell America and herself.   Given the obvious body double Hunter at the DNC convention, the only logical reason for such an appearance would be because the real Hunter is under quarantine – just not the CoVid kind – more likely, the Cabal kind wherein a bullet or a hanging are the alternatives.

What these useful pawns can’t seem to grasp is the fact that once they have served their purpose, Governor Whitmore, Lighthouse, Cuomo, Hollywood ignorants and scholastic academics, once the Cabal has extinguished their relevance, they will extinguish them forever.

As was noted by KGB Agent Yuri Bezmenov in a 1984 interview – the means destabilization.   The instruments?   Media, Hollywood,, Professors and elite academia who are led to believe they will play an infinite roll in the New World Order. But in fact, they will all be extinguished, their fundamental purpose having been fulfilled, and their usefulness a log in the eye.

PANDEMIC II: Paranoia Up – Tik-Tok

PANDEMIC PARANOIA!     As the protests begin to fade somewhat and Black Lives Matter are seen for the terrorist’s they are, the liberal media has returned focus on a dying pandemic.  

Cases Are Rising!   Learning To Live with A Pandemic!

The media has announced that because of rising CoVid 19 cases some states are going to begin requiring tourists to quarantine for two weeks. Arkansas initiated a specific quarantine for residents of NY, NJ, Connecticut and New Orleans some time ago, but now New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are considering the final blow to small, local businesses by mandating the quarantine.

As a tourist, that basically means unless you want to blow two weeks locked inside a hotel room, New York will NOT be your destination.

As a businessman, your company CEO may just rethink utilizing NY in any capacity.   And suddenly NY will be the Mad Max reality show of rebels and vigilantes. And we are left staring into the face of a government bent on destroying livelihoods for the purpose of instituting societal collapse!

In the meantime, the IMF has declared 2020 contractions that astounded the markets and sent them into negative territory as a reactionary action.   But how accurate are these dastardly IMF predictions?

According to a study done by the Heritage Foundation in 1999, they found that the IMF consistently overstated and understated basically all their numbers – always!  Which is a nice way of saying they never got it right…   But they do continues to rake in all kinds of budgetary funding nonetheless.   A subsidiary of the UN, the IMF is under the same guidance driven auspices and agenda with George Soros central and largess.   This year the IMF decided it wouldn’t be a good idea to up its budget from its $979 billion annual  funding.   Broken into three segments funding serves:   1. Quotas   2.   Multilateral Borrowing and 3. Bilateral Borrowing Agreements.

According to headlines, we are entering the second stage of Pandemic Paranoia. Bill Gates needs more chaos and deaths.   In fact, recently a patient presented to emergency with appendicitis.   The nurse tested for CoVid, and suddenly the patients is classified as CoVid – the appendicitis be damned.   And suddenly we are transported to the same tactics employed before the blogosphere began to dissect the truth.   They are pretending we learned absolutely nothing.

Why?

1.   Money.   2.   Money.   And Trump has put a glitch in their tight program that has been working so well for ‘decades’.   Therefore, remove Trump and all will return to ‘normal’, the pandemic will disappear, the BLM will find Jesus and surrender, and the people will be led to believe this is much BETTER.     Small business people will work for the Conglomerates, The cycle of money will continue, and according to Kamala Harris, the pro-Trumpers will be rounded up and put in gulags – likely somewhere inside China thereby making room for the best of theebest Chinese to move in and occupy cities across the US..

How?

MORE POSITIVE CASES!   The reason to test is to provide greater numbers knowing the antibodies being tested could have existed from decades ago and be counted today.   Asymptomatic cases now seem to be outpacing hospitalizations and deaths so more deaths by CoVid need to be created in order to reignite the fear in time for Biden to collapse and a new and improved team will emerge from the gray shadows   And because their ego’s are way to outsized to have one declare themselves as the lowly Vice President, they will reveal they will rule as Co-Presidents!

Time is of the essence.  

Normally, a virus doesn’t appear again until the next viral season which wouldn’t even be initiated until sometime in October – way too late to impact the election.   So the Media needed a hype.   CHINA – declared a second wave.   Much worse than the first.   And the world was notified that they would follow suit with the cooperation of WHO, IMF, UN, CDC.     And suddenly, after a BLM Hiatus, Fauci is back in the news.

And the Hollywood writers are regularly consulted for the next three moves.

In the end the virus has already mutated three to four times and therefore any new cases would not be the same, but would follow the mutation – which scientists have yet to identify – and for which there is no test.   Which means that the positive tests are not possible unless the virus had been in its original unmutated form for at least several months. Or the test being utilized is hugely false and actually encapsulates multiple viruses and rigs it as CoVid; H1N1, H1N5, SARS, MERS, etc… would all cause a positive CoVid test result.

The US has roughly 2.4million confirmed cases.   The deaths attributed are listed as 122,000 with no information about underlying factors. One doctor attempted to justify the lack of information as being HIPPA sensitive.   Which is wholly untrue, patient information is not identifiable by patient, it is simply a statistic.   Just like the fact that the entirety of Africa had far fewer cases than the US and yet the virus ‘unfairly’ targets blacks – seems a bit of an oddity…

The Media fails miserably.   The tentacles are vast and have roots in odd places like the NFL and NASCAR.   For the most part, the greatest devastation has been in very liberal owned cities.   Vigilantes will come out of the woodwork when/if our land is targeted.  

And the Game will change.

ANARCHY Protests – A Soros Color Revolution!

Protests have become the mainstay for the Soros Color Revolutions. They are relatively easy to instigate given their market – youth.   Across Hong Kong, Chile, Lebanon, Iraq, the wave is always the same – the chant is always the same – and the anarchical violence destroys the country from within – an implosion, spiraling into chaos, the country is destroyed. And when the dust settles, there is no economy left to build, no food, no water.

Before the protests, Chile had one of the more prosperous economies in South America. Before the protests, Hong Kong’s GDP per purchasing power capita was higher than the US and Switzerland. Hong Kong was ranked as the ‘freest economy’ in the world. According to World Bank: In Lebanon, 15% live below poverty line, 54% are middle class, 32% are upper middle class, and 7% live in the highest upper class – 85% are middle class and above!

SO what is the real problem?

It would appear that youth across the globe have been indoctrinated into believing that unless you have absolute utopia, you are in Hell. If one M&M doesn’t line up with all the other M&M’s, then the focus is on the heinous – one.   For example: in a recent Facebook dialogue, when I provided a website that lists literally hundreds of President’ Trump’s accomplishments so far, the response was two things that Trump had yet to accomplish which therefore made him a ‘liar’.  He had failed to abolish every evil and create a full utopia within three years…

Trying to bring reason, I pointed out how that might work as a focus when dealing with your spouse, or children, or family… Obviously, it would implode any and all relationships.  Deaf, dumb and blind.

Society, education indoctrination, Hollywood elites with a 9th grade education level, tell our youth that Anarchy is the answer.   And no one is stopping them. Riots in Chile have taken out a third of their railway stations and transport, riots in Hong Kong have completely shut down businesses, closed malls, caused restaurants to shutter, and fires ravage throughout once pristine landscape.

Why do these people encourage our youth to destroy?  

For some it is purely ignorance, for others it is an agenda, a global call for civil war. To rule from the throne of Earth, one must create a living Hell wherein many will perish. From the ashes, the elite will rise and use labor camps to rebuild.

Mainstream media outlets are already calling the Lebanon protests a new Arab Spring – but that would ignore the peace contracts in Syria and Yemen.  The brokered cease fire in Donbas, Ukraine.   It would ignore the drain the swamp action of Prince Salman in Saudi Arabia. And it ignores the fact that Paris went through the Yellow Vest Movement which was also impregnated with Anarchists.  It ignores the third world status that Sweden has achieved.

Who would do such a thing?

While the right to assembly and free speech are protected rights, these protests are about rioting, assaulting police, destroying businesses, damaging property, and setting fire.   They are the ‘color revolutions’ proscribed, funded, and deliberately orchestrated by NED, National Endowment for Democracy.   As per a previous post, NED is funded by USAID, Private NGO’s, Unions, and Foundations. Their design is to initiate a coup. Claiming to support human rights, they are a conglomerate of Socialists who want to recreate global socialism. Their means – Anarchy.

The US was embattled in similar protests throughout the entire Obama administration.   Race riots.   Indulged by a black President wherein racial division grew larger than it was in the 1950’s!   President Trump continually stands in alignment with core values of our Country despite the constant barrage of pure evil that would rather see us destroyed.

The verbal assaults on a sitting President and his family are beyond heinous.   The Propaganda tools of media manipulation have no ethic.   And many have fallen prey and victim to the attacks. Responsibility for a person’s words and actions are nonexistent giving these actors even greater confidence in their deeds.

It is with great sadness that I watch the destruction of Chile.   It had accomplished so much these past few decades. The people were family oriented, tourism was Yuge, and the president was gaining traction as more businesses flocked to this friendly country.  The current Chilean President, Pinera, has a history of mobilizing various foundations to address inequality, women, justice, freedom, parks and preservation.  Instead, the media mocks his wealth.

You see, The Economist, the Rothschild rag, doesn’t like him. And when the Cabal can’t buy you – they destroy you.  Venezuela – down.   Argentina – Columbia -Brazil…under siege.   

WORLD TRADE WAR: TRUMP WINS

The EU Commission is backtracking their previous rejected deal with Theresa May and claiming that the no-deal BREXIT really means the rejected deal that gave them $46 billion is the best solution for all… according to Mina Andreeva, a spokesperson.

Certainly $46 billion is a whole lot better than the $9 billion they would likely get in the Johnson no-deal deal.   Of course, resurrecting a ‘rejected’ deal would legally be starting from scratch.   But in the mélange of chaos, the EU Commission would seem to be grasping and gasping – albeit too late.

All economic indicators now rally behind an impending recession for Germany. Given they are the stalwart economy behind the EU, where Germany goes, everyone else follows.

The primary cause of Germany’s implosion is trade not BREXIT.   Industrial output has tanked, primarily in the auto and machine parts industries. Merkel’s outright refusal to negotiate a fair trade with the US having been advised that in so doing she could create a German recession – is simply corrupt.

But allies can sometimes reveal the wolf behind the mask.   Germany is not a US ally, Germany milked the US economy for decades.

The US/China trade war tipped the balance, and Germany remained staunch and unmoving.

Timing is everything.

If the UK remainers win, the UK will derail with Germany and France.   They will be boarding a sinking ship. Short-sighted, ramping up trade with the US would be an economic win.   But sometimes, pride and principle are fervent manufacturers of destruction.

While the socialists in the EU argue against Trump’s tariffs, they seem to forget that Trump offered a zero tariff exchange which Germany and the EU snubbed.   Is the EU working for the people?   It would seem not.   And like the rejected BREXIT deal that they want to suddenly reinstate, a zero tariff trade with the US may be the no-deal deal.

Is it the trade deal or is it the ally that wasn’t?

While rejecting the US zero trade deal, the EU simultaneously agreed to zero tariff’s with Japan.   The wolf showed his face.  And the ally that was, revealed it’s true corruption.  The EU wanted an imbalance and it served them well for 30 years.

The US trade balance was at zero up until 1976.   The following 15 years saw the trade balance dip and trough before coming back to zero.   Between 1991 and 2010, the trade balance tanked! Why?

Clintonomics.

Clinton lowered US tariffs which ultimately destroyed US ability to compete in the export and trade markets, particularly with China.   Because while the US lowered its tariffs, other countries did not follow suit which would have been the job of the WTO…   The World Trade Organization, which was originally the General Agreement on Tariffs and Tax, was created to provide an equality, a balance of tariffs among all member countries. Apparently, that nondiscrimination balance didn’t apply to the US.

When Clinton lowered the tariff rate in the US trade disparities began to escalate rapidly to the detriment of the US. In fact, it was a binge selloff with the US trade balance going from zero to -900billion with the speed of a Lamborghini on a German autobahn!

Prior to this binge selloff, US small businesses were a growing, the economic boom of entrepreneurship expanded significantly.   Mom and pop stores changed the face of the US.   But with the advent of Clintonesque cheap imports, these small businesses began to shutter, unable to compete.   The Walmarts of the world took over increasing the trade balance even more as Chinese goods became the mainstay.   And middle class shrunk like Alice.

In 1980 small business start-ups represented 12% of all US companies and employed 4% of workers. Today those numbers are halved. Those companies were The American Dream. That Dream died when Clinton lowered tariffs despite advice from both parties that such a move would destroy US businesses. The World Trade Center obviously did nothing to balance the discrepancies in countries tariffs, and have proven to be a truly non-essential entity.

Back to BREXIT.

The creation of new trade partners invoking a zero tariff policy is the ultimate free-trade deal.   It is the deal that is now in effect with Mexico and Canada. Today China has slipped to third place in US imports with Mexico rising to number 1 and Canada to number 2.   Expanding their economies, Trump’s zero tariff trade is picking up the slack of China imports while contracting their economy.  It is a non-tax trade.

Adding the UK, would provide them with a backstop and relieve the angst of impending doom and gloom that the naysayers of BREXIT fear.  Trump and Johnson have already made arrangements to soften the initial BREXIT wind and create a sovereign economy without the welfare payouts to the EU.

It is change.   Change requires stamina and patience. Fear will only forebode chaos.

Trump’s China Trade War – The Facts

The Federal Reserve and the World Bank at the behest of a handful of economists who are decidedly left leaning have published two scathing reports which claim that Trump’s trade war with China is costing US taxpayers upwards of $68 billion annually.

Of course the statements are biased. Of course they represent an agenda and potential fodder. If they are true.

Economists are an interesting breed. They sit in glass houses and create a conclusion without seeming to have a basic understanding of real world business and tend to adamantly disagree with each other on a broader scale while presenting a portion of the facts.

Somewhat like the climate change fiasco.

Trades are business contracts. They may be executed as a one-time transaction, transactions that occur over a series of months, and often are transactions that are locked years.   They take time to execute. Terms are pre-determined. Terms are re-negotiated.

These ‘Economists’ have made a determination based on data that is virtually impossible to track. In addition, their supposition ‘estimates’ an annual cost. But even that is wholly unreliable because the Tariffs were imposed over the course of several months in 2018, with intellectual property, aluminum and steel at the forefront.   They effectively began in July and phased in over a number of months.

China’s “implemented and ‘proposed’ tariffs” would affect $110 billion of imports. That does not mean the US exports stop. It means they will be levied a tariff which will effect the profit margin.

The economist’s reports both extrapolate the outcome as an annual loss. A year has not yet occurred.   In fact, there is only two months of trade numbers in 2019 to analyze. Certainly one can extrapolate based on previous data… right? Yes and no.

It is like a poll wherein a random sample of 1000 Democrats all residing in New York are sampled and the results will determine the US Presidential election…

Example:   During Obama’s reign trade data is available on a monthly basis.   At the end of 2008 when Obama came into office, the US trade deficit with China was roughly $268 billion.   By the end of 2016 when Obama left office, it was $347 billion. Before any tariffs had any measurable impact, by the end of 2017 the deficit had climbed to $375 billion.

This ‘non-important’ deficit has climbed every single year since it began in 1986. Since 2000, it has quadrupled. And not one sitting President did a damn thing.

Suddenly, with two measurable months of data available for 2019, the media is calling Trump’s trade war a calamity.

In actuality, the value of imports for January and February of 2019 were down 10% and 20% respectively compared to the previous year – before any tariffs were imposed.

Lets look at another trading partner – Germany.

When Obama came into power that deficit was roughly $28 billion. By the time Obama left office that deficit had spiked to nearly $65 billion. It torched at $68 billion by the end of 2018, well before Trump’s tariffs took effect. The first two months of 2019, the deficit had lowered nearly 10%.

Even in the world of an Economist, 2 months is clearly not enough of a data set to make any conclusion or opinion.   And yet they do. Why?

Obviously it is an attempt to discredit Trump and provide fodder for Democrats who are bent on finding fodder because they are frustrated with the incorrigible corruption, instead of truth.

What this also reveals is the larger picture in which both the US Federal Reserve and the World Bank are colluding in this massive demonization of all things Trump.     It also reveals that these institutions have provided absolutely no guidance or stipulations or concern for the annual increase in US trade deficit for the last 30 years.

Which technically is a reflection on their incompetence. Economic Policy is their mainstay. Their existence. So obviously they did not have the US in their sights for at least 30 years.

Why?
1) According to it’s own website, the World Bank’s field of study is on ‘Developing Countries’.   So why did they commission a report on Trump’s China trade – two well developed countries outside of the scope of their jurisdiction?

2) The second part of these reports claims that US agriculture farms have been hit hard by Trump’s tariffs.   But the agriculture business isn’t the mom and pop farm of a hundred years ago. Mainstream media have been sounding the alarm on the changing face of farms for a decade or two.

Statistics: Most small farms are ‘hobby farms’.   Tax incentives during the Bush and Obama years gave wealthy elites the ability to classify their compound acreage in the middle of such places as Long Island and the Hamptons as farmland, take a tax benefit, and produce enough to feed a cat.

Secondly, ‘large farms make up less than 4% of all farms and account for more than 66% of all sales. And that number continues to edge higher.   They are corporate farms.

And third, the Federal government continues to subsidize small farms up to $20 billion annually.

The value of agricultural exports to China is roughly $23 billion, which represents about 5% of all production in US.

It isn’t just the US Swamp that is fearful of Trump. It is The Swamps that exist globally.   He has turned their power off. He has broken the rules. He does not recognize their structure. And he wants to fix the chaos that they have so dedicatedly created for well over a hundred years.

Certainly there have been a few anomalies in the US; Kennedy, surely. But his fate and that of his brother reveal how determined the International Swamp is to maintain their brotherhood as is.

Lastly, the Federal Reserve Bank:   What is their job? Primarily – to address ‘banking panics’. Secondarily to manage money supply.   In 2012 when Obamanomics was considered an economic catastrophe the response of the Federal Reserve was not to commission economist papers, but to ‘do something’ to leverage that catastrophe. They have no business commissioning reports – outside of their Banking duties.

Trump recently threatened to take down the Federal Reserve; his animosity for that corrupt regime has been no secret.

The Enemy of my Enemy is My Friend.

Trump has been in office two+ years. He has fought for The People while being verbally attacked, legally attacked, his family in jeopardy, his life threated, and still he rose for us.  They are – running scared.

China and US Trade Alliance – Powerhouse!

The World Socialists are teetering precariously as their internal bastion of corruption leaks through Holland’s Dyke. 

France’s Macron is being splashed across European headlines as he touts a ‘European Renaissance’ amidst the crumbling infrastructure and political chaos that is devouring his own country.  The Deutsche Welle media outlet is spouting terminology such as ‘revival’ and ‘visionary’ to emphasize the greatness of what is essentially Macron’s EU Nationalism. The dirty word.   The core of Macron’s vision which isapparently ‘on everyone’s lips’ is …. drum roll… ‘Climate Change’.   The initiative?  A Climate investment bank.   Problem? There already is a Climate Investment Bank, it is called The Green Climate Fund which is administered by the UN.

Macron’s speech goes on to demand that the EU protect itself from US and Chinese competition through a Nationalized trade agreement, Aachen, between Germany and France.

Somehow the rest of the EU countries weren’t included in this EU vision.  Odd.

Canada’s Social darling Trudeau is embroiled in his own seascape of flooding waters as implications of bribery and corruption in a case between Trudeau, his government, and a company, SNC-Lavalin, unfolds.  Treasury cabinet Minister, Jane Philpott, has resigned her position stating the ‘current circumstances’ make her ability to defend the Cabinet ‘untenable’.

SNC-Lavalin paid bribes to the Canadian government in the form of illegal contributions in order to assure that the Canadian government wouldn’t prosecute them for paying bribes to obtain contracts in Canada and Libya.

This is how Socialism works in reality.

In the meantime, the US Socialist plant, Ocasio-Cortez, and her campaign manager, Chakrabarti, are being investigated for transferring $885,000 worth of campaign contributions to various self-controlled LLC’s through their PAC Justice Democrats.  Basically, it is a Ponzi scheme of moving money between various companies in order to evade FEC regulations concerning finance reporting requirements.  Oops.

Not only could this ‘arrangement’ result in significant fines, but jail time is also a possibility.

Socialism.  It is an art form.

Amidst the surge of socialist flooding, Trump continues to hold the helm toward Making America Great Again despite the media rhetoric and constant defamation.

Trump is doing what he does best – negotiating.  While the political purities who have no business acumen deride and find fault, they reveal their utter lack of understanding anything outside political bribery.

Trump is negotiating the deal of the century with China’s Xi Jinping.  This deal is revolutionary given China has never entered into a government modeled trade agreement with any nation ever.   It is considered one of the most legally complex negotiations in history and marks a true Champion of an alliance.  Aligning the world’s two largest powerhouses would in effect completely redefine the world.

The naysayers are squeezing through the thumbhole of the Dyke giving all sorts of explanations why the China-US trade deal is no big deal.   Shearing claims such a deal will not ‘jolt the global economy’.  And perhaps the key point is the term ‘global’.  True, it won’t benefit the EU.  It won’t benefit Canada.  But isn’t that the point?  Trump isn’t working to benefit the globalization globe, he’s working to benefit the US.  Period.

In addition, these naysayers are quick to point out that a deal hasn’t actually materialized yet.  Details are scarce.  And North Korea didn’t succumb to Trump’s demands.  Yet.

But if one reads inside the China landscape and the markets that have just now become significantly more positive, the wall would seem to have been razed.  It is a complicated lengthy process, but one that would see both sides working toward a new future.  And unlike the Iran deal, in which Obama gave Iran $150 billion without Congressional approval, China is a cutting edge economy rivaling the US for first place.    The Iran deal was basically a bidding war by European and US businesses to grow their economy while reaping profits.  It had no relative benefit to the US or the US citizens.  I wonder if Obama bought shares in some of those bidding companies?

China’s economy is worth $12,237.7 billion.  Iran’s economy is worth $430.7 billion, or 3.5% of China’s.

Figure it out.

DEBT vs GROWTH – which is better?

While America’s debt now stands at 105% of GDP, Europe is quickly catching up. The UK debt hovers over 96%, France is closing in on 95%, Greece is at 196%, Italy is 140%, and Germany is at 68.7%. But some of the largest and smallest numbers are not always talked about. For example; Japan tops out at 199.4% and Russia lingers at just 11.3%. Part of the problem is in the numbers – as in, who is reporting the numbers? The Japanese government is reporting debt at 199.4%, while Bloomberg and The Economist say it is 240%, but not to worry because public debt is really only 140%. Well that puts them over Italy and no one is saying that Italy has nothing to worry about. But then Italy’s ‘public’ debt is 114%, so while Japan is ‘really only’ – well, Italy is ‘really only’ – less.

The Scandinavian countries routinely come in low, although not the lowest with 20-50% ratios. Even Pakistan and South Africa come in under 40%. Low debt does not equate to a good standard of living, but it does equate to a theory of management. High debt certainly creates the aura of near implosion. So why does the mainstream news keep plugging the failing economy of a country that has the lowest debt to GDP ratio in the world and virtually ignore the country with the highest debt?

Because information molds views and more than anything the view that the media wants to extol is that – Russia is imploding. But it’s not.

Japan has a low inflation rate and low unemployment. But on a comparison basis, consumer prices for food and rent are 25-39% higher in Japan. In 2014, Japans growth rate went into negative territory. While the rate is back in the positive, it is a barely there number at .6%. Italy’s growth rate is currently at .3% whereas the US is lingering at .2%. The countries with the highest growth rates include Senegal at 22% and Kazakhstan at 8%. While the Ukraine’s growth rate had ranked in the positive at 3.3 before the coup, it now lingers in the toilet at -17.6%. In the wisdom of Dr. Phil – ‘How’s that coup workin’ for ya?’

So where do these statistics leave us? Correlations seem to be lacking.

Simply looking at one number obviously fails to tell anything of worth. So what can we learn from Italy and Japan?

While high debt is an indicator, in combination with stagnant to negative growth, a country is doomed. What stimulates growth? What lowers debt?

Growth is stimulated by competitiveness and private sector returns, public sector investments in education, infrastructure and technology are all drivers. So, how do you do that? Well, for one thing taxing out the public and private sectors is an obvious faux pas. What can hamper these natural stimulations? According to a Nobel Laureate Economist, quality government is the key. Governments that abuse their power, make decisions for the elite, and favor the special interest groups, will create the implosion no matter where the debt stands.

Within the government initiative there is the obvious – demand. Demand is high when wages are more indicative of a thriving economy. Low wages = low consumer spending = low consumer confidence = low overall growth rate.

How do we increase wages?

The Obama solution is – redistribution of income through taxation. It’s an economic absurdity to even consider this a solution. Taxing a corporation reduces their bottom line more which will effectively redistribute nothing to anyone but the government. Corporations are motivated by profit. They want a greater return if they are going to pay more wages. They want increased productivity to justify the wage increase. Right or wrong – that’s how their mind works. Resume writers want their clients to show how they created greater wealth for their previous employer because that’s what sells an employee’s worth.

Stagnant wages make for low morale and stagnant growth. Corporations don’t have the American morale any longer, they see cheap India labor as their driver. If the government spent more time and money ‘incentivizing’ corporations to pay better wages and keep them in the US, entitlement programs could begin to fall away thereby redirecting the entitlements to incentives. It might be a breakeven for the government, but that would be their ‘job’, and moral, confidence and earning power would be the end result for the citizens the government represents.
