Stock Markets, Housing Debt – Don’t Get Caught in the TRAP!

The Stock Market Beating is a massive re-allocation.   And ALL The King’s Horses Told ALL The King’s Men what Not to Buy Ever Again!

Just as everyone got whipped into a frenzy, Ukraine’s president, Zelensky, suddenly puts the breaks on and declares, “Hey why is everyone so panicked?   Russia isn’t going to attack us, there is no imminent invasion…”   WHO declares the emergency status of CoVid is over despite Fauci claiming it will ‘never end’.   And the Border vaccine mandate for truckers crossing between the US and Canada was suddenly lifted, as in ‘void’.

The FBI has released its crime stats for 2020 with 17% of jurisdictions ‘not reporting’.   So like everything else in this brooha of science and facts – they ‘estimate’.   Murder rose almost 30% and aggravated assault rose roughly 12% – ‘guesstimate’.   Of course none of the violence in the big city chaos fires and lootings and destruction are counted in the statistic because no one was technically arrested – they all walked.  Therefore the numbers are ridiculously LOW.

Even worse is the statement that robbery declined.   Given California, New York, Minneapolis, etc… the hubs of robbery were given a pass for each individual involved if the theft of less than $900 – they don’t count in the FBI statistic any longer…   So the statistics that used to be quantitative math have now been eclipsed by fake numbers.  And comparing them to past statistics is a feeble exercise in infidelity…

Hillary has gone into hiding given the polls, businesses, media, and just about everybody from every party scoffs at the idea of a reboot 2024 as ridiculous.  She is as past tense as shoulder pads.

Even Obama is being ridiculed as “Biden’s First Lady”.   Could it be because Psaki and Kamaltoes accidentally declared that they report to Obama? And Obama doesn’t want the legacy of breaking the back of America?   Dastardly.

Or are they running scared given that Newt Gingrich statement that once the Republicans take control, there will be a whole lot of people going to gitmo-Jail?

On a Dime – The World Turns.

Switching to The Economist, the purveyor of crystal ball predictions, they assert that Europe would be just fine without Putin’s gas transit… Odd, as a bon voyage gift, Germany’s Merkel gave out flyers detailing what citizens should do in the event gas is no more.   Apparently people were given such anecdotal advice, the flyers were ultimately trashed – and burned for fuel.   “Do jumping-jacks”, “Wear multiple layers of woolies”, Hug your dog”… I’m sure they were all greatly comforted by this advice.

One year ago EU natural gas was 16.23 euros per megawatt.   Today it advanced as high as 96.9, down from its extreme high of 180.27. And with the exception of Lithium, commodities were down.   But that is down from their highs – and still reflects a one year surcharge of 100% to 200% increase – just during the Handler Administration.

Of course none of the inflated commodities are included in the value of inflation which is still pegged at a measly 6-7%.

So what the heck just happened?   In the end, what all this fear mongering appears to have accomplished is a selloff of certain tech stocks that left the smaller investors sitting on huge losses, while the Hedge Funds – reallocated and made massive gains.  SURPRISE!

The biggest gainers today were ‘retail’ and China Evergrande, you remember, the debt dividend defaulted worthless Evergrande.

Lest we be Alarmed, Markets are on the edge of a supercharged technology that could defeat the purpose of trading shares.

AI is being exclaimed as a game changer in market intelligence predictions.   But if everybody has the same AI intelligence, technically, no one will profit or lose because AI will be the per second predictor – a continually circular band wagon.

Imagine your hedge fund stock data is uploaded to a frequency of percentages and every AI trade is initiated simultaneously on a minute by minute basis.   Traders become obsolete.   Wall Street is unnecessary.   The Commodities market operates on a shoestring of employees.   And there is no more tremendous gains – it is only increments.

It is interesting that as all the founder CEO’s of the major tech industry were excommunicated and replaced by puppets, the stocks of their companies have been radically hit 15% to 20%+.   A planned event.   Thus timing dictated that Hedge Funds should bail.   It will be some time before their investment share changes are made public, but given they all follow the same top ten – we shouldn’t be surprised.

It is somewhat aligned with real estate.

We have watched real estate prices climb 50% or more over the last 2 years.   There will be a planned 20% correction before they swoop down for vulture buys.  People will freak and sell low.    The last vestige before the Great RESET>   Those most heavily mortgaged will have the worst pain. Don’t a victim of debt.  

And those without real estate will be cattled into 200 sq foot Company Town apartments and trailers.  If you don’t understand the plan, The Great RESET, you won’t properly secure your wealth.   Pay Attention.

Mother Of All Supply Shortages!!

“The Mother of All Supply Shortages is Coming”!   Headline.   China to blame according to Bloomberg.   The story is making its waves thru liberal & conservative channels with the threat source – Bloomberg.   But the story is faulted and bears a closer look at exactly who is responsible and why. 

“China Finds Omicron in Another Port City Further Threatening Supply Chains” ~ Boston Globe.   That would be 1 case.   Yes.   One case of Omicron In a city of 7 million.

In 2021, China posted it’s largest trade with the US in history!   According to trade data from China, the bulk of that rise was a direct result of Pandemic supplies.   While the US was beleaguered by shipping container shortages, trucking mandates, port closures, and supply shortages in 2021, China was making huge profits.   If in fact China is and was responsible, then their trade profits would reflect those delays and shortages as well.   That didn’t happen. Why?

China is expecting slower growth for 2022 – as a direct result of the disappearance of the Pandemic and related supplies all made in China.   Including those N-95 masks now required by the CDC.

And while the Biden Handlers, which likely includes Mr Mikey Bloomberg, are doing everything in their power to destroy the US economy, China is busily making trade friends with the Middle East and now India.   As in, ‘keep your friends close, but your enemies closer’.   China recognizes nationalism within a bloc of trade partners is key to growth – and survival.

Note:   Bloomberg has offices in both Beijing and Shanghai. Having radically expanded in China over the last decade, they offer Chinese language professional services and subscriber news.   Self Citing:   “Bloomberg is the most trusted source of information for professionals and businesses”.    A)   Trusted – not accurate or factual, but trusted.   B)   Trusted.   Prove it.

Supply Shortages are created by the country having the shortage, ie, US, Australia, Canada, and EU.  

The shortages in nearly every industry are due to exactly one cause:   vaccine mandates. Lift the mandates – no more shortages.   Biden’s private mandate was struck down but some suppliers continue to mandate their workers privately.   Workers leave for greener pastures, and suppliers blame China.

The ‘Greater Demand’ explanation that the US kept pandering as the cause of supply shortages was a fabricated lie.   There was only ONE greater demand, Pandemic supplies.   Therefore, ships were prioritized according to their load – everything Pandemic docked, everything else languished.

China’s zero CoVid mandate continues to disrupt cities, partial city lockdowns are instituted when a CoVid case is diagnosed.   Yet headlines continue to make ‘assertions’ instead of relaying ‘facts’:   port at risk – congestion – may cause – could result in – could cause blow.    The headlines play word games once reviled by manufacturers marketing techniques:   20% better – better than what?

When searching these supply shortage  headlines they all have two specific dates attached – August 2021, and January 2022.   Nothing in-between.   The point?   Fear mongering in order to destabilize and support panic.   If China’s ports were shuttered extensively in August 2021, why did China post largest trade surplus ever over 20% for the year?

Yet, there is one headline that would have some truth behind it although the cause is fiction:
“Major Manufacturers Are Shutting Factories”.   I did find one – Canon.   The reason they have given is because no one is buying old school cameras any longer.   But the Newswire that supplies the same story across the entire grid of media claims Nike, Adidas, Volkswagen, and Samsung ‘suffer massive production problems’.   So I tested that claim and found this useful truism:

“In 2019 Samsung had ceased to make mobile phones in China, the company revealed on Wednesday. The company has been withdrawing from handset manufacturing in the country for a while now as its position in the Chinese market is not strong, whereas business conditions are better elsewhere.

Samsung used to run multiple phone manufacturing facilities in China. About a year ago, the company shut down its plant in Tianjin, then it closed its plant in Huizhou in mid-2019. Recently, the world’s No. 1 maker of smartphones ceased production of handsets in another factory in Huizhou. Equipment used at its facilities in China was relocated to plants in other countries, such as India and Vietnam.”

Samsung doesn’t exist in China any longer having pulled out over 2 years ago!  SO yes – that would be a ‘production problem’ I suppose.

Adidas & Nike ‘production problems’ were actually boycott problems reported by Bloomberg in 2021 extensively. “A boycott by mainland Chinese consumers of international brands that have taken a stand against the treatment of Muslim Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region has taken a toll on Adidas and Nike brands.”

Lastly, the empty shelves posted from one grocery store in Canada had absolutely NOTHING to do with a supply shortage.   Canada had a monster snow storm approaching and the trucking union pulled all truckers from the roads until they could be cleared.   End of Story.

Jumping on the Bandwagon of these fake stories that promote a flawed if not corrupted picture of reality does no one any good at all.   Including the media.   It is true there is a shortage of truck drivers, exasperated by vaccine mandates. But that shortage has existed for over a decade and did not shutter our economy.

What IS shuttering our economy is manipulated data, manipulated news, manipulated Pandemic fears, and manipulated container shortages. The cost of shipping across all means is expected to continue to rise in 2022, not because of supply and demand – but because of inflation and forced wage hikes.

This is why researching instead of simply glomming onto Headlines is imperative!

UNVAXXED are the Scourge of Civilization

The ‘UNVAXXED’ have become the Dalits, the Salem Witches, the lowest Caste, the Scourge of civilization. Not deserving of medical care for any cause not allowed to socialize, and now according to Fauci, not allowed to hug and kiss. Wouldn’t that fall under the UN’s International Human Rights Declaration and Law as a Violation?

The International Covenant came into effect in 1976 protecting:

  • the right to work in just and favourable conditions;
  • the right to social protection, to an adequate standard of living and to the highest attainable standards of physical and mental well-being;
  • the right to education and the enjoyment of benefits of cultural freedom and scientific progress.

“It prohibits arbitrary deprivation of life; torture, cruel or degrading treatment or punishment; slavery and forced labour; arbitrary arrest or detention; arbitrary interference with privacy; war propaganda; discrimination; and advocacy of racial or religious hatred.”

ALL of which are being espoused by governments across the globe against the unvaxxed!   Nowhere in the LAW does it say ‘except’ when a person refuses a vaccination.

IT isn’t just the Vax, It also does not provide an exemption for DC police and prison officials when torturing the January6th prisoners.

I thought the UN was supposed to be a universal body protecting ALL persons – not just the indigenous or the poverty stricken within Africa.   The UN tag line is “Peace, Dignity, and Equality’.   It does NOT say – just for Africa – or except for the unvaxxed , – and the DC prisoners. So why aren’t they doing their job?   If the UN contends to be the World’s Global Government, they are losing. Sorely!   You can’t be a savior when you are supporting deprivation of life, torture, and cruel treatment or punishment.

But then, Secretary General, Antonio Gutteres is full of joy and excitement given the prospect of a New Year 2022, stating:

“The world welcomes 2022 with our hopes for the future being tested by deepening poverty and worsening inequality…an unequal distribution of COVID vaccines…climate commitments that fall short, and by ongoing conflict, division, and misinformation”,

Ah! I feel so much better now knowing that we are in Good Hands…

As WHO blasts a forthcoming tsunami, Europe is back in lockdown over a ‘cold’, and the CDC is backing off its 72% Omicron to a readjusted guestimate figure of 22%.   Science is Failing Miserably.   Simultaneously, the CDC has announced the PCR test is slated to be completely declassed as of 12/31, the reasoning espoused by Director Wallensky, who appears to be near tears and cringing, is that the PCR test will show a positive result for 12 weeks, and cannot differentiate between CoVid and a Cold because they are both coronaviruses.   GOSH SHUCKS.

So what she is saying is that for 2 years the case counts are meaningless, and as per their previous footnote, only 6% of the actual true deaths were ‘from’ Covid, or possibly pneumonia or flu.   How delightful.   We should be celebrating – right?   It was all a funny joke.   Ha-ha.

Meaning a latent cold that you had a few years back is still a detectible virus within the 13 trillion inactive viruses living in your body at any given time. According to the PCR Test.

SO ALL these Case Counts – which are estimated using the Bill Gates algorithm, are further meaningless. But of course, they knew this all along because the inventor of the PCR Test, Kary Mullis – said so.

How Grand.

SO now the power that be states that despite plenty of shipping containers, and despite the fact that semiconductor chips are transported via cargo planes not ships, and despite the fact that ALL chipmakers have been fully ramped for roughly 9 months to a year – a shortage will continue.   Why?

Could it be that there are warehouses filled with boxes and crates of chips in China?   Taiwan?   Germany?   Anyone? Anyone?

As of August 17th, China declared that it had already manufactured 203.6 BILLION chips in 2021.   And that the shortage is a lie.

The US imports $53 billion in chips annually for cars and electronics within a global revenue of $474 billion representing just 11%.   The base cost per car in 2019 was roughly $312 each.   Next year, that cost will double. SURPRISE!   The electronic systems in a new car now comprise 40% of the cost of the entire car!!   Which also equates to ‘insurance rates’!    Lovely.

Roughly 17 million new cars are sold each year in the US.   That would require 5.3 billion chips or 2.5% of what “China” produced as of August. That would ALSO not include the production from Taiwan, Germany, Japan, Malaysia or The Philippines.

Where’s The Beef?

Obviously there is NO Chip Shortage – there is ONLY a Chip Contrived shortage to manipulate prices and spike Inflation.   I declare that to be a violation of my Human Right via non-discrimination as an American.   Where is the non-governmental, non-global, non-human right organization known posthumously as the United Nations?

Perhaps sleeping in Delaware? Walking the beach?   Or on vacation in Costa Rica?   YAWN.

You see.   Even the shortages are an illusion.   Just like the CoVid cases, just like the vax, just like the hospitalizations, and just like the death rate.   Contrived. And despite mathematical proof that all this is a LIE, the governments, the UN, NATO, WHO, continue to ignore the fact that 5+4=9.   And instead propagate the New Math illusion that 5+4 might = 12.

Just as it did in Alice in Wonderland ruled by the Evil Queen and her mascot – the Cheshire Cat.  

Economist Psaki Explains Biden’s Inflation: Follow The China …

Psaki keeps denying that the Biden Handlers are responsible for the largest rate of inflation since the 1940’s. Routinely she grins and says it is because companies are ripping off people with incomparable profits!   So I decided to take a gander:

1)   BP Oil – year end 9/30/21 revenue was up 45% over 2020 which was down 35% from 2019.   2019 was $282.6 billion, and 2021 was $217.5 billion. Net change = -23%.

2) Proctor & Gamble – gross profit for 2019 was $32.9 billion and for 2021 was $39 billion an increase of 18% over 2 years.

3)   Kraft-Heinz – apparently their financials were misstated to appear ‘overly rosy’ between 2015 and 2018 and are subject to fines…and regulatory restatement. $In January 2021 a $2.7 billion debt reduction was approved.

4) Exxon-Mobile – 2019 earnings were $14 billion while earnings for the first 9 months of 2021 were $14 billion with anticipated year end to reach $16-$19 billion a potential increase of 14%-35%. They made record debt repayments, began a massive share repurchase program, and secured 3 million barrels from the US Reserve.

5)   JP Morgan Chase – in 2019 had revenue of $115.6 billion compared to total anticipated for 2021 of $121.6 – an increase of 5% over 2 years. A $30 billion share buyback was authorized for 2021.

Share Buybacks are, like everything else, good and bad depending on the circumstances.   While it increases the dividend/distribution payout to shareholders, it depletes cash reserves for expansion.  There is also the fatal flaw that the buyback manipulates the metrics used to calculate executive compensation and bonuses making the move more attractive for a select few while not dispersing the payout to shareholders. It is therefore considered a means of ‘stock manipulation’.

In a chart provided by Harvard, an analysis in 2018 of buybacks to dividend payout revealed that the US companies were the ONLY ones to NOT return the reaped dividends to the shareholders.

For example, a review of ”Insider Trading” for JP Morgan Chase reveals a selloff beginning in the 2nd quarter 2020 and continuing thru the 2nd quarter 2021.

But this practice has been ongoing since the 1980’s, ramping up over the last decade, while it reaped massive profits for the elite, inflation was never an outcome.

Psaki’s college education is disputable given that despite having a Wikipedia presence since 2013, her backstroke degree in swimming was suddenly altered in 2021 to state her degree was in English and months later upgraded to claim her degree was also in sociology.   English majors typically go on to be teachers or writers – but Psaki immediately was picked up for ‘politics’ – more than odd given a swimming degree hardly qualifies as a political operative. But then there appear to be no pictures of her as a swimmer, nor as a graduate.

Kindof like AOC graduating from Boston College despite no pics or intellect to support the claim.

The John Kerry affair(s)? may have been squelched after rising early 2000, but Psaki stating she travelled alone with Kerry to France 25 times seems a bit unusual given Kerry was running for president of the US – not France.   But then a list of Kerry’s employees and interns leaves NO mention of Psaki at all…. perhaps she wasn’t actually on the ‘payroll’.

Anywho – Psaki’s knowledge of economics is sorely vacant. By contrast Kayleigh McEnany graduated from Georgetown majoring in international politics, studied abroad at Oxford and spent three years as producer of the Mike Huckabee show, ultimately graduating with a law degree from Harvard..

While corporate profits definitely trended higher in 2021, the impetus was the 2020 pandemic recession which also saw massive unemployment and bankruptcies.   But those profits do not match the gluttonous price increases that took effect just as Biden took office including:   food up 30% to 300%, gas up 200%, building materials up 31%, steel up 95%, housing up 35% to 50%.

THE TRUE ROOT CAUSE OF OUR CURRENT INFLATION?   We are subsidizing China.   Our corporate Behemoths are establishing a new Chinese Consumerism obsession – but until the Chinese consumer can afford their ‘pricing’, the US and Europe are functioning as Subsidy TaxPayers thru exponential price increases.  This FAKE INFLATION has NOTHING to do with supply and demand, and everything to do with the creation of a NEW Economy with 1.5 billion potential consumers!!

And the Shipping container Debacle!   That’s China too!   My next BLOG POST.

IMF: Debt Reduction Thru Higher Interest Rates

IMF:     “Public debt now accounts for almost 40 percent of total global debt, the highest share since the mid-1960s. The accumulation of public debt since 2007 is largely attributable to the two major economic crises governments have faced—first the global financial crisis, and then the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Providing a graph to depict and substantiate this claim, the IMF literally made up the causal factors.

According to their graphic (an estimate per their footnotes), from 1970 to 2007, before the global financial crisis, before the pandemic, public debt doubled.    Nonfinancial Corporate Debt doubled from 1970 to 2020 – before the pandemic. The Public debt held by the US is on par with the debts illustrated as being from advanced economies.   According to the IMF the increased debt was justified as governments sought to par the catastrophic consequences of ‘their own lockdowns’.   Okay – the IMF didn’t exactly put it that way.   Instead they denoted the necessity to ‘save peoples lives, avoid bankruptcies and save jobs’… as justified actions.

But the point remains.   The Pandemic was used as the catalyst to increase debt beyond sustainability.

The IMF again relays inconsistent information by claiming that ‘central banks were instrumental in keeping inflation at bay during the pandemic by consistently lowering interest rates so governments could unabashedly borrow limitlessly.   But again, according to their own graphic interest rates had tanked in 2019 – well before the Great Pandemic.

Central Banks are now poised to reduce large purchases of government debt and other assets in advanced economies. The effect of this reduction is to reduce the supply of money in the economy increasing interest rates and the ability to borrow.

In contrast, some economists are calling for the outright ‘cancellation’ of the debt.   Shifting debt from the Fed to the Fed’s banks is a zero monetary transaction.   The argument the economists provide is that the debt is ‘fiat money’ existing only from an accounting standpoint. Like transferring money from your checking to your savings – you still have the same amount of money.

Cancelling the debt would have the result of cancelling the circular interest.   However, the logic is that cancelling the debt means the feds have no way to lower inflation which is attached to selling bonds to the public. Selling new bonds would likely require an increased interest attachment to make them attractive which would push inflation higher.

The entire monetary policy concept created by the Federal Reserve assures us of two things:   1. The continued degradation of the value of $1, and 2.   The ever increasing worthlessness of money due to insurmountable debt.

At which point paper money will be burned for heating fuel.

At this point Today the IMF is recommending a tightening monetary policy greenlighting the raising of interest by the Federal Reserve. Mortgage rates have already begun to climb in anticipation since the end of November.

And just like that, Morgan Stanley is calling for the Fed to raise interest rates to bring a ‘balanced economy’. Acknowledging that the move will result in a stagnated economy, CEO Gorman has declared that the move will be completed by the end of March and equities will flatten as cheap money disappears.

Spiked by the wage raises, Gorman has declared the Fed should start moving today given any waiting will make the move that much more difficult for sustainability.   Falling in-step with their banking handlers, the Fed announced 3 hikes will begin in 2022, with a further 3 in 2023. Citing a robust job market and a reduced unemployment rate, Gerome Powell has announced he will comply with the banker’s demands.

The available jobs has hit a near high at over 11 million while unemployment stands at 4.5%.   But unemployment does not reflect those vast millions who simply left the employment field.   Within those numbers are some fine print:   the number of working hours per week is 34.8, and nonfarm payrolls are less than half what they were previously.   The problem is unusual.   People reaching the age of 55 are retiring early, and the youth market is flat because millennials all believe they deserve more and better. Sounds like a mantra they learned somewhere….   Socialist schools maybe.

The Federal minimum wage remains at $7.25 per hour.   Yet retail and hospitality rates start at $15 – and can’t find an able body.   Of course there are the mask and vaccine mandates playing havoc as well with industries.   Many companies are making the mandates citing Biden’s Executive Order for companies which have more than 100 employees.   Problem.   Biden’s EO mandate was tabled by the Court. It doesn’t exist.  Which could up the ante for more class action lawsuits…

MARKET – Choppy.
