EPSTEIN DEATH: Ghislaine and Brother Mark AT Risk…

Jeffrey and Mark Epstein grew up in a “middle class” family that is more likely considerably less than ‘middle’.   Mark Epstein is 2 years younger than his brother, and claims to have gone to the same undergraduate school as Jeffrey, Cooper Union. Cooper Union’s list of notable alumni previously included Jeffrey, but his name has been redacted. Mark served as vice chair and chairman for Cooper Union between 2007 and 2013.   In 2011 it was stated that the school was near financial ruin having depleted nearly its entire endowment. Having opened in 1902, the school provided full scholarships to every accepted student.   That ended in 2014 when a financial restructure was required. Mark Epstein was found to be complicit.

Founding a silk screen printing company, he managed to squirrel away enough money to buy multiple apartment and condo properties in New York, including a number of units in Manhattan at 301 East 66th Street in the early 1990’s. He claimed he got a tip from Les Wexner, who was reportedly Jeffrey Epstein’s only client, and founder of the Victoria Secret label.  Wexner was also implicated in the Lolita Express and it would thus follow Victoria Secret models were engaged as well.

Maritza Vasquez was a bookkeeper for a modeling agency Jeff invested in and claimed that many of his underage models were housed in Mark’s apartment complex at 66th street.

In an online profile, Mark claims to be a current Director and Board Member of the Humpty Dumpty Institute.   When pulling a Google search on the company, I was given the address hdi.org. Despite the tag line referencing initiatives on child nutrition, instead I was redirected to three separate pages which opened to an online company selling Cialis and Viagra.  Weird…

Organized in 1988, it’s current CEO is William J. Rouhana, also, CEO for Chicken Soup For The Soul. The NGO claims to be affiliated with the UN, Ban Ki Moon and Bill Clinton. Other notable representatives include: Demi Moore, Charleze Theron, Sam Jackson, and Michael and Kirk Douglas.   The newest member announced this May is Rashida Tlaib, the Palestinian protectorate. They claim to be tackling such projects as ‘child trafficking’.

Other notable members of the Board for Humpty Dumpty are a who’s who of Liberalism despite the NGO claiming they are non-partisan: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson, Al Green, Adam Shiff, etc… etc… All aligned Democrats fighting to impeach Trump and eradicate ‘white nationalism’.

Obviously, Mark Epstein is deeply aligned in the democrat cronyism.

Mark also states he is the owner/founder of IZMO Family of Companies, Dara Partners and OSSA Properties.

Mark, like Jeffery is unmarried, and has no known girlfriends.   As brothers their lives have been intertwined from the onset in all notable business associations.   It is highly likely that Mark participated in these various enterprises along with Jeffrey and would be considered a bounty of information, ie testimony.

Another expert testimonial witness would be Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman who procured the mountainous supply of sex slaves for Epstein and his voluminous book of wealthy elitists.

Neither have been indicted. Which might indicate that a deal was cut whereby in exchange for Jeffrey Epstein’s testimony, these two would be granted immunity. But given Epstein’s demise of murder-by-suicide, that deal would seem to be null.   Meaning both Ghislaine and Mark need ‘protection’ lest they succumb to the same murder-by-suicide pronounced so liberally in the Clinton spectrum.

There is also the highly likely scenario that Epstein had massive amounts of evidence stashed for just such a development via microchip, photos, video’s, whatever, with multiple sources and directions for its security and release given certain circumstances.

While Epstein’s probable murder alleviated his testimony, both Ghislaine and Mark are now at risk for execution given it is plausible they know everything Jeffrey knew and have also received explicit instructions on what to do – to secure their safety.

Pesticide Peril – not for the faint of heart

Germany’s flagship company, Bayer, is facing 18,400 lawsuits, predominantly from California whereby their subsidiary, Monsanto, has been cited for its toxic, cancer causing pesticide, glyphosate.   Bayer bought Monsanto for $63 billion one year ago and today Bayer’s total market value is less than what it paid for just Monsanto with it’s stock plummeting 50%. While Bayer claims that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the chemical, they are fast-tracking an alternative.

There are 26 countries that ban or restrict the use of Monsanto products including: Germany, China, India, France, Hungary, Austria, Australia, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, Luxembourg and Mexico.   The four largest pesticide companies in the world are: Syngenta, owned by China – the world leader of agro-chemicals, Bayer, headquartered in Germany, DOW, headquartered in Michigan, and BASF, also headquartered in Germany  (they purchased Monsanto’s seed division).

In the US alone 851 million pounds of pesticides are used annually.   90% of private wells sourced by groundwater contain pesticides. The contamination results in 14 million fish deaths, 67 million bird deaths and 20,000 new cancer patients each year.

The most prolific user of pesticides is China at 4 trillion pounds per year. Obviously their ban of Monsanto is purely a business decision and not an environmental one.

The top consumers in order of pounds: China, US, Argentina, Thailand, Brazil, Italy, France, Canada, Japan, and India.   The impact on the smaller countries is significantly more hazardous given the concentration levels.

Glyphosate is not the only banned chemical that is showing up in our food chain, paraquat and chlorpyrifos which are banned in the EU are a common supplement to Brazils exports including wheat, soy, cotton, dairy products, coffee, tea, eggs and beef. YUM!  But chlorpyrifo’s are the brainchild of DOW and used for insect control on citrus fruits, wheat, corn, cotton, soybeans and sugar beets in the US.   They are NOT banned in the US despite serious potential side effects including:  vomiting, stomach cramps, muscle twitching, tremors, weakness, loss of coordination, unconsciousness, loss of bladder control, convulsions, difficulty breathing, paralysis and of course – death.

Farmers have lobbied for the continued use claiming they stand to lose up to 70% of their crop if insects are not controlled – and there is no alternative product. But, while they claim there is no alternative, that would be a false argument given that organic farming utilizes just that – alternatives.   It is not that their are no alternatives, it is that the alternatives make them non-competitive in the mass market.

Sometimes alternatives may be a predator insect, as in butterflies eat aphids, but as we are well aware, the cost of alternative farming exceeds the mass market and the competition for the general public.

Notable elite such as Bill Gates et all, Buffet, Zuckerberg, those with the means, negate anything mass produced and eat only organic.   While they advocate the use of chemical laden foods for feeding the world, they are wholly repugnant at the thought of consuming such for themselves or their families.

Starbucks coffee is imported from Brazil and Columbia. The term Arabica on the package refers to a type of plant, not a place.  So when you are choking down that latte, or espresso, or French Roast, know that you are drinking a hefty dose of yummy pesticides aka Latin America.  Brazil is known to have the highest per capita consumption of pesticides.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, glyphosate causes cancer, most notably Hodgkins. Nerve damage is the other leading medical ailment associated with the chemical.

A California couple’s settlement award for glyphosate poisoning which was initially $2 billion was recently reduced to $87 million.   Still, given 18,400 separate lawsuits at an award rate of $80 million, that would amount to nearly $1.5 trillion.   At present, Bayer’s annual net is roughly $400 million, so that would wipe out all profits for about 4 years.

Agro companies, pharma companies, they have an agenda.   And it isn’t – health.  Let the buyer beware.  But let the buyer also be informed.

THE SQUAD: RACIST Today and Slave Traders Yesterday…

“Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another. It may also include prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone because they are of a different race or ethnicity, or the belief that members of different races or ethnicities should be treated differently.”

 There are so many issues with this definition – where to begin???

First:   racism can be directed toward any person – calling everyone white nationalists is racism because it is used in a derogatory way to denounce a group of people based on their ethnicity.

Second:   members of different races should be treated differently, they ask to be treated differently, they demand that their particular culture be treated differently to the point that there are now black only universities, in fact many universities segregate graduation based on ‘different ethnicities’ in order to be ‘all-inclusive’.   All Inclusive would thus be – racist! There are entire neighborhoods dedicated to a particular ethnicity – by choice.

Third:  antagonism has been directed against our elected President because he is white and male. That is not only racism, it is discrimination based on gender.

Fourth:   racism is an all black basketball team.

While the ever vindictive, Washington Post, is aghast because GOP senators who were asked to define racism had many different answers, their ignorance holds title given racism has many definitions! How dare they!   Apparently, we must ALL have the same speak forthwith elst we are ‘different’, and being different is racist.

And the very non-independent Independent rag in the UK has declared that Trump’s latest tweet was racist. Why?   Because instead of realizing that he was calling out four women who have banded together to demonize the United States and all things we stand for, they, the non-independent Independent, chose to see ‘women of color’ – which of course would make them racist for even seeing ‘color’.   Oops.

Because, in order to be non-racist, one must be ‘color blind’.   The media became the progenitor of racism by seeing ONLY ‘color’.

“The Census Bureau defines White people as follows: “White” refers to a person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East or North Africa.”

Oops!

Ocasio Cortez’ parents are both Puerto Rican. Over 78% of Puerto Ricans identify as ‘white’.   The racial ancestry DNA is largely composed of 64% European and 21% West and North Africa.

Rashida is Palestinian – Middle Eastern = white according to the US census.

Ilhan is Somalian. Somalian’s do not identify as African, they identify as Middle Eastern, thus white.

Ayanna Presley would then be the ONLY ‘woman of color’ and we have no information about her ancestry.

And the press and Democrats would be belligerently – racists for assuming three women who are white – are in fact ‘colored’.

So who did Trump tweet to? Four women who have united together to call all white people supremacists, and Nazi’s, and nationalists. Four women who have called black voices deplorable slaves if they don’t align to the Presley view of Socialism/Marxism.  Four women who are actively discriminating, racist, and misogynist.

Color – is not an ethnicity.   Color is not a culture.

However, from a purely anthropological standpoint there are three human races: Mongoloid, Negroid, and Caucasoid.   But those definitions have since been refuted given that are genetics has proven to hold a maelstrom of ethnicities making our race sometimes non-identifiable.

While Aristotle and other ancient philosophers designated a weak vs strong means of defining people, that is termed ‘ethnocentrism’. Ethnocentrism is based on language, behavior, customs and religion.   One of the first books to discuss ‘racism’, was written sometime in the 9th century by a Muslim titled, The Superiority Of The Blacks To The Whites. In AL-Jahiz writings, he explained that Turkic and Bantu people were actually black because of environmental determinism.

BUT THEN IT GETS WORSE:

The Somali people captured Bantu’s and sold them into slavery.   That would make Ilhan Omar a slave trader by historical consequence. The Palestinians had three classes of slaves: state, domestic and temple.   That would make Rashida a slave trader by ancestry.   Puerto Ricans had African slaves up until 1873 – eight years AFTER the end of the US Civil War granting slaves freedom.   That would make Ocasio a slave trader by ancestry. Presley has given no background on her ‘ethnicity’ so I can not comment.

Racism would obviously be present in Three of The Squad members!

Oops.

Modern use of the term racism in the US rose with the belief in eugenics.   Eugenics was a form of racism in that it aimed to favor – once again – the strong, ie the weak must be eradicated.   Hitler and Marx were true racists in that sense.   Abortion was the other form of racism.

The Squad is calling for the white founding fathers of America to be eliminated because they were white and thus racist given some had slaves as was the custom in the south.

Perhaps The Squad should go back to their own countries of origin and demand reparations and racist nationalism therein – but then Ilhan would have to go into war torn Somalia that is in the midst of ethnic cleansing by Al-Shabab a Muslim – panAfrican organization…   Oops.   And Ocasio would go to… you get the point.

AFRICA: Follow The Money

Tomorrow in New York City the UN will host a start up fund for the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration (GCM)”.   Launched in September 2016, the intergovernmental pact supporting GCM was approved by164 countries and signed by 152. The countries that did not climb aboard the band wagon include: United States, Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Chile, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Hungary, Dominican Republic, Latvia, Israel, Poland, Slovakia, Brazil and Switzerland.   Russia signed the agreement but issued a statement repudiating aspects with regard to the ‘cause of mass exodus’ claiming if a nation created the migration they should take on the burden.

The basis of the pact is to allow complete Open Border policy.   Sound familiar?   In addition, the host country will ensure migrants can access basic services and make provisions for both full inclusion of migrants and social cohesion, while supporting multicultural activities through sports, music, arts, culinary festivals, volunteering and other social events.

In other words refugee status, immigration quotas, and immigration restrictions and conditions would be eliminated. Citizens and taxpayers would be required to pay for all the migrants as they acclimate while receiving free basic services.

Obviously, the UN and the Ted Turner UN Foundation have an agenda.

Over the last few decades’ enormous amounts of money have been injected into Africa for the purpose of revitalizing the infrastructure, building exclusive neighborhoods, and buying up large swathes of farmland – called ‘land grabs’.   In addition to billionaire dollars, the money has come in the form of the Paris Climate Accord and in the form of government funded charities and NGO’s, aka taxpayers.

Encouraging the outflow of Africans to other countries via immigration, war, and disease, vast portions of Africa then become enclaves available as home to the elite. Most of the urban revolution is occurring in the following locales: Cairo, Egypt – Casablanca, Marrakesh and Tangier Morocco – Accra, Ghana – Lagos, Nigeria – Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Durban, South Africa – Mombasa, and Nairobi, Kenya – Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The elitist suburbs host the wealth of white expatriates while 93% of the unemployed remain black.   Over the last two years upwards of $3 billion has been invested into the renovation of Johannesburg alone. The city boasts a moderate climate, a burgeoning art world, modern shopping centers, a new commuter railway, three public and private universities, and crime surveillance camera’s on every city street corner which has halved the crime rate.

In 2016, for the first time ever a member of the Democratic Alliance Party became mayor of Johannesburg, Herman Mashaba.   The Democratic Alliance Party is comprised of English speaking Afrikaans and is considered Liberal supporting “Open Opportunity Society For All” .  Sound familiar?

Nairobi boasts a vibrant economy as well hosting headquarters for Coco-cola, World Bank, Citibank, BBC, CNN, Reuters, Deutsche Welle, Agence France-Presse, New York Times, and AP.

In 2010, Kenya drafted a new Constitution, the political system was overhauled and infighting became the norm since.   Morocco is predominantly Muslim, Lagos government shifted to the Socialist Party in 2019, and Ghana recently voted in the New Patriotic Party.  Of course, like other countries, the elections are highly contested with allegations of fraud and rigging common. Not unlike just about every country and state in the world now.

The Green Climate Fund which operates to expend donations for the Paris Accord has released its financial statements for 2017.   Of the $100 billion goal, they have collected a total of roughly $5 billion. In 2017, of the $1.9 billion collected, they spent $115 million – 6%. In 2016, of the $1.6 billion collected, they spent $31 million – 8%.   Where oh where does the money go?

The majority of the Green Fund ‘spending’ is in Africa to help women fight ‘climate change’.   ????   Many of the projects focus on Kenya and South Africa. The African continent’s carbon footprint is -0-.   Some of the projects are termed “multiple countries” and include Kenya, South Africa, Morocco and Egypt.

Coincidence?

Some of these projects in Africa are partnered with Agence Francaise de Development (AFD). In 2007, AFD was called into question for its deforestation in Africa. No legal proceedings were brought.   According to the Cameroon National Anti-corruption Commission (CONAC), two front companies, including one controlled by AFD, have been suspected of fraud.   How do they pass the inspection of the Directors in charge of the Green Climate Fund?  Deforestation would hardly benefit ‘Climate Change’.

It would appear that no one is truly auditing the Green Fund other than the Green Fund.   The two co-chairs are from Egypt and the UK.   Directors vary from Iran, Denmark, Germany, Tanzania, Nicaragua, France, Mexico, etc…  Why is Iran a Board Member in the Green Fund?

In order to become a resident of South Africa, one must have resided in the country for five years. Retirement visa’s are allowed if one can prove complete financial sustainability.

The US has the largest immigrant population in the world standing near 50 million. While other countries (Germany, Australia, Canada) boast a high percentage of immigrant population, their state of origin is rather different:   In the US – Mexico, India, Philippines, China and El Salvador dominate.   In Canada –  the UK tops the list with China, India, Italy and US close behind. In Australia – the UK, New Zealand, China, and Italy are the majority.

Why?

Because these countries require self sustaining, highly educated immigrants. Go figure.

Ultimately, an Open Borders For All scenario would cause the US to become a third world country – on the hind of Africa reaping the benefits of elitist money, development – and of course – $$$$$$ while maintaining a black unemployment rate and/or slave labor rate of roughly 40-93%.

THIS IS THE AGENDA.

GOOGLE ELECTION MEDDLING – A Federal Offense

Google Election Meddling, coming to a theatre near you!   Google’s top executive, Jen Gennai, Head of Responsible Innovation, inadvertently revealed the very irresponsible plan that Google will employ algorithms so as to not repeat the dastardly mistake of 2016 in allowing Trump to be elected.

Project Veritas conducted an undercover infiltration as well as dialogue with an inside whistleblower revealing Google’s intent to knowingly and purposefully interfere with a federal election. Veritas founder, James O’Keefe, responded by providing said evidence to President Trump as well as 11 members of Congress, including; Ted Cruz and Elizabeth Warren, through his attorney.

President Trump has invited Mr. O’Keefe to the White House’s Social Media Summit slated for July 11th as a result.

Mr. Gennai is recorded as saying, “Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

In other words, Google is proclaiming that due to its massive size and power, only it can destroy a Trump victory. YouTube and Vimeo have since deleted the offensive video expose (YouTube is owned by Google).

Last December, Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, vehemently denied that Google was ever complicit in such dastardly deeds, and that it operates from a nonpolitical, nonprejudice position of tolerance and sweetness toward all people on this earth…

According to the Billionaires Dinner, an event hosted for the scientific elite, Artificial Intelligence is the design, the solution, and the end all that will ultimately takeover mankind. And this is the pursuit of such notables as: Larry Page, Jeff Bezos, Sergey Brin, George Dyson, John Brockman, Bill Gates, Pierre Omidyar, Mark Zuckerberg, John Cusack, Arianna Huffington and Jeffrey Epstein, to name a select few.

Note: It would appear the Billionaires Dinner disbanded in 2016, or has chosen to go off the Grid.

While the media spin discusses the impact of AI robots on a human world, the more definitive purpose is to implant AI in humans so as to create ‘’super-humans’.   And only the billionaires will be able to afford this colossal advancement.

But the ramifications are even more ‘mind blowing’.

Facebook’s announcement that it has spent billions employing sixty engineers to create ‘telepathic typing’, sounds interesting on the surface until you delve further into the concept.   That telepathy would be controlled by – Facebook, aka Zuckerberg.   Within an IT system, it could also be hacked. Hacked, you would no longer be in control of your own typing… And in the projection, ultimately your mind would no longer be yours as the control was further broadened. In essence you would be – a robot.

Subject to the whims of the masters.

And this was the warning exemplified by Stephen Hawking before he died. It was not that robots would take over, it was that humans would be the robots taken over by super AI/humanoids.

This is the mission of Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Ebay, etc…

And so, when Google announces via a loose tongue that their intent is to manipulate the presidential election, to subvert the presidential election, and to own the presidential election, they have also announced that they intend to rule the world as a globalist corporation whose power is virtually unlimited due to their – money.

While that power agenda may seem common knowledge for some, the arrogance of power has risen beyond comprehension for most.

Perhaps Elizabeth Warren thinks that the means to divest that power is simply to divest the power of Google, but in reality that is shortsided and will accomplish little to nothing.   This “Power” vacuum has tentacles beyond what we can even imagine.   And the only individual I know that has even a remote possibility of severing the core, is President Trump.

And that is exactly what they fear the most.   That alone should speak volumes.

Russia Stole The EU ELECTIONS? Hardiharhar!

The EU is claiming that Russian friendly social media accounts targeted the EU elections to suppress voter turnout and influence voter preferences by making such grandiose claims as:   1) a decline of western and Christian values in the EU, 2) statements that the corruption scandal that brought down the nationalist party in Austria was the work of Spain and Germany, 3)   highlighting the irrelevance of the European Parliaments powers, and, 4)   unfounded attacks on the EU.

They go on to announce that voter turnout reached a 25 year high.  Odd…

The author(s) of ‘the report’ are never mentioned. But somehow all of the egregious social media statements were considered ‘fake’.   Oddly, that would make me a Russian Bot.   And I am most certainly not.

The social media cited as the sources include; Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, all of which have in place extensive anti-conservative analytics.   Twitter and YouTube have been the latest to suppress any and conservative accounts from gaining any attention, sometimes deleting Tweets without the author even knowing.

The report claims that countries that supported the AfD were particularly targeted by Russian Bots and Trolls given those countries experienced significant gains in nationalist candidates; such as France, Poland and Italy.

But Facebook had already banned all accounts in the EU that it deemed were politically right of center a month before the elections…  Oops.

In other words, if a country actually supports a candidate that is not socialist, that means the people of that country were brainwashed. The NYTimes calls it a DNC Russia hack.

And while gains were made for nationalist and conservative parties, the socialists still control 441 seats out of 701 total, and the communists control 41 seats.  Progress, but not an infiltration.

Jean Claude Juncker, the President of the EU Commission, earns a whopping salary of $36,184 per month = $434,208 annually – not including his insider trade deals. While the PM of Luxembourg, Juncker managed to make his country one of the largest tax havens in the EU, including the pharmaceutical, Glaxo-Smith-Klein, Amazon, and Vodafone. The Luxembourg haven is estimated to be worth over 3-5 trillion Euros. Not bad for a Socialist mentality. And it could be the reason the Socialists continue to claim – this ideology works.

All of this is conjoined under a single term: disinformation. False information intended to mislead and propagandize.

Within that definition such information would include; the Steele/Trump Dossier, New York Times, Washington Post, the DNC, BBC, DW, CNN, CIA, MI5, Google, NBC, Politico, and just about every media outlet on the planet. Because technically, everyone is postulating their opinion –

So why would Russia’s particular ‘disinformation’ be classified differently?

Since 2000, the US has characterized Russia as Authoritarian.   What does that mean?

  1. Limited political pluralism realized with legalistic constraints on the legislaturepolitical parties, and interest groups;
  2. Political legitimacy based upon appeals to emotion, and identification of the regime as a necessary evil to combat enemies of the people, socio-economic underdevelopment, and guerrilla insurgency;
  3. Minimal social mobilization consequent to legalistic constraints, such as political suppression of all anti-regime activities;
  4. Informally defined executive powers, which extend and allow government authority into every sphere of life

These are the core ideologies of the Socialist and Democrat parties across the Globe. Censorship being the most pervasive as all things social media are determined to be ‘disinformation’ if they do not align with the regime of the EU and the Liberals. The Liberal Regime then instates itself as the savior of the people from which all things ‘enemy’.  This would include those who do not align with their respective ideals. And lastly, legalistic constraints are imposed by a slew of NGO’s bent on finding all things a bastion of oppression on – one.

Utilizing the now defunct Soviet Union as an example of authoritarianism, what is not voiced in this historical reference is the fact that the Fall actually occurred with the Russian Revolution wherein the Communist Bolsheviks murdered the monarchy, and therein sustained massive assassinations, murders, and genocide under the tutelage of Marxist Socialism. The same Socialism advocated by the EU, Juncker, and the Liberal parties across the globe today.

Leaders that we have been taught to immortalize, to deify, fall within this advocacy including; Nelson Mandela, Ban Ki Moon, Pope Francis, etc…   That is the true propagandizing, the true ‘disinformation’ that has engulfed our schools, our universities, and our media because the Liberal/Socialist politicians who are the pocket-tools of Banks and Pharma are told what to do, what to say, who to like, and where to spit.

There are a few super-heroes working for The People, Sarah Sanders was a true warrior.

History can be burnt. Truth can be redefined.   But it is undeniable that WWII would never have been won without the aid and massive losses of the Soviet Union.   WWI would never have been won, without the Soviet Union.   I do not purport to support Soviet Russia, any more than I would purport to support Nazi’s, because in essence the Soviets were vying for their own freedom from the suppression brought on by the Socialist/Marxist Bolsheviks that have now become US enemy #1.

Know your history.   Study it well.   The Jesuits.   The Bolsheviks. The Christians who converted to Judaism in order to be money lenders… Don’t be afraid.

PUERTO RICO: FEMA ENTITLEMENT

FEMA was instituted in 1978 by “Executive Order” during the presidency of Jimmy Carter. As of 2018, FEMA’s entire annual budget was $18.4 billion.

The House has approved $19.1 billion in disaster relief to Puerto Rico despite Trump’s objections.   Total damage from the two hurricanes that devastated the territory was estimated to be $50-$90 billion, which is a) a rather large discrepancy in estimates, and b) relatively close to its entire nominal GDP of $104 billion.

As a Commonwealth territory, it does not enjoy the full privileges extended to states although as a territory they are entitled to Disaster Relief funding.   They have their own Constitution and their own House of Representatives. Historically, they have repeatedly voted against statehood and as recent as 2011 were designated an Independent Nation by the UN. In 2012, the Puerto Rico government held two votes regarding their status and the majority voted for statehood. In 2012, President Obama said he would work on that – but nothing has been done and their status remains Commonwealth territory.

In addition to FEMA funding, Puerto Rico enjoys $21 billion in annual aid from the US.

In 2017, FEMA agreed to $464 million relief, and Trump agreed to $4.9 billion in loans. Trump’s disaster relief priorities are for US states which have their own flooding, tornado, and cyclone issues, including the Nebraska Airforce base that desperately needs $450 million given historic flooding this past March, and Hurricane Harvey which is stated to have caused $180 billion in damage..

In 2017, the cost of disasters affecting the US totaled $300 billion.   When there is not enough money to go around, Congress asks for ‘supplemental appropriations’.   Obviously the $18 billion budget fell far short of the $300 billion tab. Frequently that means relief will be over a term of years with private donations pitched for assistance.

While Hurricane Harvey was estimated to cause roughly $180 billion in damage, FEMA approved $5 billion for Texas after a comprehensive state plan of action was submitted. This is fairly normal, given the Federal government rarely, if ever, pays for the entire estimated damage of any disaster.

Puerto Rico has NOT submitted a plan because apparently their government believes it is simply too ‘time-consuming’ – according to NBC News.

It would seem that the Puerto Rico government feels entitled to a check in the FULL amount immediately payable, with no plan for distribution, to spend as they wish, at US taxpayers expense despite the fact that Puerto Ricans do NOT even pay US Federal Income Tax. And they are ANGRY they haven’t gotten those funds.

Shiploads of aid reached Puerto Rico within a week, thousands of containers of food, supplies and fuel. Aircrafts began descending with aid as airports were reopened.   NGO’s and private donations were also lucrative and generous. But in 2018, warehouses of rotting food and rat infested crates were discovered because the government failed to make distributions, instead claiming Trump was to blame for not doing – enough.

FEMA had just been deployed to mediate the disaster of Hurricane Harvey that wiped out parts of Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee when weeks later Maria hit Puerto Rico. Getting aid over land to Texas was significantly easier than shipping aid in the middle of a catastrophic storm – to Puerto Rico.   Still hundreds of cargo ships managed to arrive within a week. But Puerto Rico’s truckers were not available to unload the crates and so the aid sat… and sat, for over a year.

Rosello, the elected Puerto Rico governor recently said, “If the bully (Trump) gets close, I’ll punch the bully in the mouth.”

That is a threat of violent action against the President of the United States. The Governor should be arrested and jailed for threatening bodily harm to our President!   It is reminiscent of California’s Governor Brown whining, threatening, and then demanding money despite failing to meet Federal Laws regarding ICE and illegal immigrants.

Why is Rossello calling Trump a bully? Because he wants more money. San Juan mayor, Carmen Cruz who has announced her intention to run against Rossello in 2020, was unbelievably vicious, insulting, threatening and vindictive at the time of the disaster. She continually made false statements and claims while refusing to explain the warehouse corruption or the fact that the aid was there but distribution was not. She is aligned with US Liberal Democrats in their belief that boundaries of political accord do not exist any longer. I imagine she has aspirations of Hollywood, a book deal, and a Soros alliance.

In 2018, the FBI raided Carmen Cruz’ mayoral office over improprieties, corruption and fraud in business dealings. Two officials were indicted. A further FBI investigation into the Puerto Rico governor’s office led to indictments against four politicians and a judge for corruption and undue influence.

This non-US state, with Commonwealth status, an economy that continues to require unrelenting Federal aid just to sustain itself, is a welfare product that has failed miserably to apply any measures to teach its citizens how to fish. Instead, it continues to demand more and more fish be given to them because they are entitled and deserve their fair share…

If it sounds like a Bernie, uses money like a Bernie, and whines for more like a Bernie, chances are – it’s a Bernie Socialist Nation and needs to be Independent. Personally, I would give my money to viable states that are a part of our United States.

US Healthcare – vs Health Insurance

An interesting query/comment was put before me today that sparked the need for a blog – Healthcare vs Health Insurance – as a mandate. How could a basic coverage plan work and still be fair?  

  1. Basic coverage would exclude prescriptions, cosmetic procedures, dental, vision, and ambulance services. Long term care would also not be covered.
  2. Individuals making less than a specified amount, lets say $50,000 per year, would pay into the system a percentage of their gross income. All others would pay a progressive flat fee with a cap. Tiers for family’s would be progressive up to a maximum of two children per couple. All couple’s with more than two children would pay a flat fee for each successive child.
  3. Insurance company’s would no longer be the middleman unless someone wanted supplemental insurance coverage through an independent private insurance company.
  4. In order to access coverage an insurance card would be issued to each individual including children, with a picture updated annually.
  5. Medicaid and all forms within that conversation would be eliminated.
  6. Servicemen would be covered with the military picking up the cost 100% for any member earning below a threshold – say $50,000.
  7. The VA would be eliminated.
  8. Congress would NOT vote on the proposal, instead a vote would be made by all legal taxpayers, their status verified via a comparable analysis of Social Security numbers within the IRS computer system.
  9. In order to make this work over the long haul, the entire government pension system would be – eliminated. This would be voted on by taxpayers, not Congress.
  10. The government would fix the value of services.
  11. The cost of prescription drugs would be tied to a global mean amount so that US citizens are no longer subsidizing the world’s cost.
  12. Medicare would remain intact.

Currently, the federal government spends $1.1 trillion for healthcare, $583 billion for Medicare over receipts, and $430 billion for all other healthcare. Individuals cough up an additional $2.4 trillion per year. Of course this includes the average annual expenditure of Hollywoodites requiring $500k of plastic surgery per year, so the number has some skew room.

It is estimated that the US spends about $12,000 per year for each person on healthcare. That is double the next developed countries output.   That would indicate that the US spending could be cut in half from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion which includes ‘Hollywood excesses’.

However, simple averages in healthcare spending do not necessarily reflect true cost:

According to Kaiser, “In 2016, 5% of the population accounted for half of all health spending. The 5% of people who spend the most on health care spend an average of around $50,000 annually; people in the top 1% have average spending of over $109,750. At the other end of the spectrum, the 50% of the population with the lowest spending accounted for only 3% of all total health spending; the average spending for this group was $276.”

Even when comparing spending for people over the age of 65, 10% of that population accounted for 50% of the spending. People with a prior diagnosis of a disease spend upwards of 300% more than those currently diagnosed. And spending costs for those over the age of 65 is 2-3 times greater than those aged 35-45.

Between 2010 and 2016, Health insurers saw an increase in revenue from Medicare and Medicaid surging from $92.5 to $213 billion – an increase of 77% with the advent of Obamacare.   That income is mostly generated by taxing taxpayers to pay for the splurging costs incurred by those who have no wage, illegals, and/or welfare recipients.

As of 2017, the top six executives at United Healthcare raked in $1.75 billion in compensation.

In 2017, the US national gross income was roughly $19.6 trillion. From a simplistic standpoint, even an 8% tax levy on all gross income would pay for the entire healthcare costs assuming the above reductions in cost put the total annual cost on par with developed countries. If Trump’s tax overhaul were to bring back to the US income that is currently untaxable in foreign off-shore accounts, the flat percentage would be even lower.

How did Health Insurance even arrive in the US?

The brainchild result of FDR’s policies, insurance was invoked because FDR levied price and wage controls that stagnated capitalism in the employment industry.   In order to provide a benefit that another employer did not, so as to encourage a higher tiered worker, companies opened Pandora’s Box for the Insurance scheme.

Founded in 1929, Blue Cross and Blue Shield was the brainchild of Democrat Justin Ford Kimball.   As VP of health care facilities in Dallas Texas, the recipients were teachers who were guaranteed 21 days of hospital care per year for $6.   The tax exempt status of Blue Cross helped achieve increased costs.   At the time, it is estimated that the above average wage earner spent roughly 2%-3% of their income on healthcare.   Most people utilized friends, neighbors, midwives, Indian medicine, herbal cures, etc…

Eliminating the Middleman is key to lowering healthcare costs.   Obamacare did the opposite, it made more money for the Insurance Industry while enslaving the worker and businesses to an ever burgeoning cost that is now double any other industrialized country in the world.

Double. Let that sink in.

Simply rolling back Obamacare will NOT have the reduced cost effect that is necessary to bring the healthcare of the US to par.   And while this is not Medicare for all, or Universal coverage, it is an elimination of a middleman that has profited serendipitously at the expense of you and I.

My annual percentage is now over 20% of gross income.

Climate Refugee’s

Germany’s Socialist Deutsche Welle news outlet has found a way to combine the plight of immigration with the plight of Climate Change – “Climate Refugee’s”.   Citing Central America as being in the midst of a unprecedented drought, DW uses this to vilify Trump as he supports building a Wall thereby exacerbating the immigration plight of the Climate Refugees.

The Central America Dry Corridor has existed for hundreds of years. Not unlike California, it is vulnerable to the climate implications of El Nino and la Nina. These forces produce years of flooding and years of drought. Like California, the countries most vulnerable have done absolutely nothing to mitigate these weather troughs and thus agriculture is severely impacted.   It is estimated that upwards of a million people are affected by the instability of this corridor.

In 2015, the UN signed massive agreements on behalf of Central America to support ‘resilience’ as a result of the negative climate impacts. “Sustainable Goals” were launched under the Paris Accord. And by 2016 a Commission was created and an ‘agenda’ was developed.   By the end of 2016, the UN had held high level meetings and a proposal was put forth to spend $80 million to mitigate the climate effects.

By the end of 2017 another committee was created which formally announced that an agenda did exist and that indeed the Dry Corridor was vulnerable…

Still, nothing was actually done.

Today, the World Bank has created a five year program in Honduras that will ‘build resilience for 6,000 people who are extremely poor’.   The program aims to teach these people ‘food security, irrigation, fertilization and healthy diets’ thereby increasing their income and lifting them out of poverty.

Houston – we have a problem…  THREE years of doing nothing is exactly why the Paris Accord is a catastrophe.

Radical climate fluctuations resulting from traditional events such as El Nino create radical climate events, ie flooding and drought. To mitigate and preserve agriculture would entail capturing the water in reservoirs during periods of flooding, and having those reserves piped to agriculture land in periods of drought.   No amount of healthy diet training and fertilization is going to help when the land is ravaged by water or desert.

A program to lift .6% of the population that has been designated as extremely poor into agriculture sustainability through healthy diet training over a period of five years – is NOT a solution in any sense of the word.

The US gives Honduras roughly $70 million in aid each year for the purpose of Humanitarian and Development assistance and Military assistance.   Of the total aid, 11% is designated for military assistance, and 89% for Economic development.  This would be taxpayer $$$$.

In the EU, five countries stand out as pledging the most to the ODA, Official Development Assistance organization, which is tasked with promoting economic development in developing countries.   Sweden, Norway, Luxembourg, Denmark and The Netherlands lead the EU in dedicating money to assist developing economies become more gender equal.   Apparently, Women Empowerment is thought to be critical to agriculture sustainability development. The remaining 10 countries that pledged money – apparently never actually coughed it all up including two noteworthy countries: Germany and France.

While no one argues against gender equality, the fact that Economic Development is now defined as gender equality for the purposes of economic aid – is perhaps why these countries remain economically undeveloped.   It explains why their agriculture is devastated year after year, it explains why their countries remain poor, and why aid does absolutely nothing to lift them out of poverty. They are not building reservoirs, dams, irrigation systems, pipelines, etc… to capture and preserve water, instead they are being told what constitutes a healthy diet, and given classes in gender equality training.

So despite the fact that infinite amounts of millions have been given to these countries within the Dry Corridor, nothing has been done to alleviate the problem by these dedicated numerous charities in association with the UN.  And instead, the UN and the EU defacto Germany have decried that the Border Wall, aka Trump, is to blame for all the ails that have persisted for decades.

In essence the EU and UN are simply looking for a way to align Climate Change money with Women Empowerment by teaching what constitutes a healthy diet to countries that have no food, and sell them fertilizers in the process.   Ah.

Personally I find this to be fake news, propaganda, disinformation, and hate speech toward our President.   All of which are punishable offenses requiring fines, censorship, and jail time according to German Law.

Socialism: The US Military – Lesson 101

The ‘darling’ Socialists are quick to bring to light the US government agencies that they deem to be ‘socialist’ in order to defend Socialism as a defacto solution to all that ails the US.   “The Military is Socialist”.   Really?  

It would appear that few are learned in the definition of Socialism:

“The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.”

If you don’t like that one, here are three more:

  1. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
  2. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
  3. a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

The common denominator of these definitions?  Goods. Property.   Production.   Ownership.

The Military does not provide goods.  Does not designate property.  Does not produce goods.  The Military is a volunteer organization in which they members agree to perform services for a wage.  Within that ‘voluntary service’ they are provided certain benefits to add to their wage base.   And if they do not perform according to the designated rules they may be fired.  Granted, the Military is required to have guns and jets and bombs as an adjunct product of their service.   But it is a product of their service – not a luxury.   Cars, houses, clothes, food, toys, etc.. are luxuries produced on our behalf.  Those are the ‘goods’ referred to in the definition of Socialism.  That is the basis of ‘economy’.

In a Socialist ‘economy’ those luxuries disappear.   Shortages become the norm.   In the 1980’s when Poland was governed into Socialism, the waiting period to buy a car was 7 years.  But you were required to advance that cost and wait.  The waiting period to lease an apartment was 5-7 years, but you were required to advance the rent.   Supermarket shelves were empty save for endless bottles of ‘vinegar’.

In Venezuela, they no longer have drinking water.

That – is – Socialism.

The fact that ‘taxpayers’ are charged for that Military wage is a benefit to taxpayers and has existed since the beginning of militaries.   When the Socialists within the US, Gabbard, O’Casio, Sanders, Beto, Warren, etc… reference their embrace of Socialism, they refer to a different definition and are simply attempting to muddle the truth.  Yes the government operates .  It exists.  It is funded by taxpayers for the express purpose of performing duties and overseeing various organizations including the military, including our public school system, our public universities, our police and fire department.

And it is supposed to be – free from bias, free from prejudice, free from propaganda.   As a taxpayer funded enterprise.

Capitalism:  “Capitalism is an economic system based upon private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.”

The basic – the largess discrepancy between the definition ‘acquired’ by the Socialists in defending their rule is ‘economy’.

Which makes their entire defensive platform a house of cards.

They do not even understand the most basic conceptual definition of the platform they espouse. And that makes them ‘uneducated’.

The fact that the pure definitions have to be even be discussed is further evidence that the Socialist education system adopted in the US and the EU has collapsed into a dummied version of apocalyptic proportions in which history, and current events, are corrupted. The burning of books, the burning of knowledge.

The fact that these individuals would support that FIRE, is even more heinous, for it reveals the soul beneath.

It is wearying trying to educate the minds of those who have chosen to bury their heads in the sand.   It is wearying to try and regurgitate what history has already taught.  It is wearying to listen to people who have never experienced the devastations refuse to listen to those who have…
