RECESSION? White House Declares Stellar Economy –

The unemployment rate is now an indicator of a Recession according to the White House.  Given the claim that the rate is roughly 3.5%, we are NOT in a recession, we are in a zoom economy…   Everything is hunky-dory, and those fool economists who claim otherwise should be jailed along with the Jan 6th protestors!   Accounting 101:   how many people were recently disabled?   What is the ‘excess’ death rate?   Why did ADP bow out of the labor reporting scheme?   Where does the WH get its numbers?

According to the CDC, an additional 1.2 million became disabled last year.   But that number along with every number is not real – it is a guess.   Excess deaths are a guess.   Even deaths are a guess.   Global and countrywide population stats – are a guess.   Demographics are a guess.  And when the Powers need to tweek the guess, they simply alter the algorithm.   This is Science.   Guesses.

We are not in a recession because the ‘old’ way of making the determination isn’t right – and the new way is better because it uses ALL the guesses to determine a fact.

November 2021, the CDC changed the method for determining ‘excess deaths’:  “an increasing amount of data had to be excluded from the algorithm modeling, as weekly counts of deaths during the pandemic (February 1, 2020 to present) are excluded from the algorithm to estimate the expected numbers of deaths.”

Translation – the actual numbers had to be omitted because they interfered with the guesses.   As a result, no one knows how many people died.   The Social Security Administration released ‘data’ reporting how many people were on disability payments from 2007 through 2021.   They state unequivocably that the numbers have ‘not been edited’ yet. 

During 2020 and 2021, roughly 1.7 million were terminated from SS Disability leaving 7.87million still receiving benefits.   However, the CDC claims 61 million Americans are living with a disability – 27%.  Other assessments state that over 42% of Americans under 65 have a disability.   The most common disabilities are mobility and cognition.   36% of those with a disability have ‘mental illness’.   Mental illness ranges anywhere from ‘I am depressed’ to schizophrenia.  According to NIH, a new definition of mental illness needs to be updated for accuracy…

A recent job posting by the CDC for VAERS stated that the applicant would be responsible for reviewing and editing over 770,000 adverse event notifications annually….  To date VAERS lists 1.34 million adverse events reported including death.

In Science NOTHING is Absolute – therefore Nothing is Fact!

While Biden handlers have declared that a recession is not a factor of GDP, they move the goal posts and state that employment, consumer and business spending, industrial production and income are the new “Holistic” factors.   ALL numbers created by the US Bureau of Economic Analyses via guesses.   ALL numbers that would rank higher as a result of inflation!

Why not create a fake GDP number like every other fake number?

What the Administration failed to note is that if everything is hunky-dory, then the increased Federal Reserve Rate is useless because it has no impact.   Janet Yellen has thus come to the table and stated that our economy is not in a recession but that Russia might cause us to fall into one in the very near future… like maybe next week…  Russia.

Yellen supported the labor notion by declaring that a ‘net average of 375,000 jobs’ have been added every month for the last three.   However, the number of people on welfare increased from the estimate of 52 million to 69 million.   Obviously, an additional 17million on welfare would not equate to rising employment.  The statistic claims the cost is roughly $670 billion per year by ‘The Government’.   Of course, The Government has -0- cost – ALL costs are born by citizen taxpayers.

IF in fact we added 17 million to the rolls of welfare, then obviously the unemployment rate would increase – not decrease.  Further disrupting the false rate of 3%, and the stellar economy stipulated by Biden and Yellen.   9%-20% Inflation does NOT portray a stellar economy.   Job layoffs to the tune of 10% have been announced across the board for most large corporations.  Tech companies have led the frenzy of layoffs, with the car industry a close second.   Entire restaurant chains have announced closures.   Everything that needs a chip has experienced shortages creating a slackened manufacturing and business industry slump!

YET, the WH would have us believing these notices don’t exist.   Even Yellen’s statement that 375,000 employees have been added each of the last 3 months is WRONG.   The Last ADP Report filed was for April to May and claimed an increase of 128,000 – an algorithm.   The previous month was 202,000 – an algorithm.  An algorithm based on GUESSES> Yellen outright lied.

The Handlers are getting sloppy.   The makers of facts are not consulting each other.   And the evidence reveals a protracted economy with unparalleled inflation, and a job market that is dropping 10% of its employees. 

What is; The Purpose of the UN, NATO, WHO, Federal Reserve?

**What is the Purpose of the United Nations?

The UN was created after WWII’ to replace the ineffective League of Nations.   It was based on the Four Major allies of the globe; Soviet Union, US, China and UK under New Deal aspirations magistrate – FDR. The UN Charter which was signed by 50 countries was officially penned in 1945 with the addition of France as a Major Allied Nation.   Not Germany. Why? Because Germany was the evil axis that had initiated both WWI & WWII.

It was the UN that partitioned Palestine to create Israel. It was the UN that partitioned the Soviet Union.   Effectively redistributing entire land mass countries according to their design.  Including Ukraine.

As their ‘peacekeeping missions’ continually fell short and had little to no effect, they redesigned themselves. They had lost luster and their purpose diminished continually.   By the 1970s, the UN budget for social and economic development was far greater than its peacekeeping budget.

They waned.  Albeit temporarily.

President Reagan actually withdrew monetary support of the UN in 1984.   By 1988 as Bush took the presidency from Reagan for a reign in January 1989 – UN monetary support reversed.   Suddenly, the powers exponentiated!   The UN became embroiled in conflicts from Salvadoran War, Khmer Rouge, US led Iraq invasion of Kuwait, and apartheid in South Africa.

Between the Bush and Clinton era’s, the UN became the Global Government.

**What is the Purpose of NATO?

NATO was established in 1949 after WWII to protect France and the UK against an attack by Germany or the Soviet Union.   Given the Soviet Union no longer exists, technically that would mean NATO’s purpose is to protect European countries from – Germany. It’s purpose was specifically delineated to be defensive – to deescalate situations in the promotion of peace.  Key Word – DeEscalate.

Oddly, their missions have been offensive in:   Ukraine, Turkey, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Kosovo, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, and Kuwait.   ALL in the guise of the Partnership For Peace.

Today, NATO has unilaterally redefined themselves as:   “partners through military-to-military cooperation on training, exercises, disaster planning and response, science and environmental issues, professionalization, policy planning, and relations with civilian government.”

Civilian Government?   Who could that be?

**What is the Purpose of WHO?

World Health Organization was launched in 1948 as a ‘subsidiary of sorts’ of the UN at the behest of – China.  Its Logo was the symbol for ‘Healing’.   At the time, the diseases rampant included: malaria, TB, and STD’s.   But maternal and child health in terms of ‘nutrition and hygiene’ were also control vectors.

In 2020, WHO announced there were 600 million new STD’s with the US having the highest rate among developed countries at the rate of 124 among 100,000 people.   And despite all their eradication & healing efforts, 630,000 die each year – among 241 million annual cases.

While WHO considers these numbers a great accomplishment, it should be noted there were no aggregate global disease numbers in 1950, 1960, 1990…   or even 2020 for comparison.   WHY?   Because no one reports these diseases in Africa or India!   And thus, WHO creates back-estimates, present guesstimates, and future crystal ball numero’s in order to create a fabricated statistical chart.

Anybody who ever studied statistics in the foregone age of real learning institutions, they were the bastion. If nothing else you had – statistics. Truth. Real.   No more!   (In my mother’s world, etiquette according to the authority of Ann Landers was your ‘statistic’ go to in the event of well, anything…).

Statistics have gone the way of polls and surveys, and critical race theory.  And WHO has failed to eradicate diseases from 70+ years ago and HEAL.   

*What is the Purpose of The Federal Reserve?

In 1913 when the Fed was founded, its principal function was to make sure the U.S. banking system could endure bank runs created by unforeseen financial shocks.

The means of achieving this was determined to be the task of making loans to its member banks when the banks needed more liquidity. These loans were to be paid in Federal Reserve Notes, a new banknote that the Fed was given the legal authority to issue.

Economist, Milton Friedman, declared that it was the Federal Reserve that created the 1929 Great Depression! Years later in 2002, Ben Bernanke as Chairman of the Federal Reserve stated that Friedman was correct and apologized for causing the Great Depression.

Their usefulness is obviously – greatly exaggerated.

The Federal Funds Rate did not exist until 1954 – post WWII.   A chart delineating annual inflation since 1929 and Federal Funds Rates since 1954 reveals the correlation is nonexistent.   Their Monetary Policy – does NOT exist.   And thus – the entire concept of Monetary Policy – is an Illusion.

These cornerstones of our current, present economy have not achieved their purpose since their inception – 109 years ago to 70 years ago – and yet they continually empower themselves unilaterally – without citizen votes or input.

The point?   NONE of these organizations have usefulness.   On the contrary, they have revealed incompetency, fraud, corruption, and a narcissistic proclivity as pathological liars.   Still, they believe they are the coming Global Power that will rule via their Sustainable Development Plan – The Fourth Industrial Revolution, The Great RESET.

This is why Democrats and neo-conservative Republicans are fleeing Congress – they have been told there will be no more – elections. The Committee Government has risen.

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!

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.

US Economic Inflation, Inflation, Inflation

The Biden Administration White House Handlers have declared that the inflation occurring throughout the US is really no big deal.   If you take out gas, heating, electricity, pork, meat, chicken, fish, and housing, then inflation is pegged at 6-7%!   But WalMart would say differently claiming shortages and inflation are going to hit hard and strong this winter! The media is also collaborating to hype the shortage of natural gas coming to your home this winter.

So what is Reality?

A.   Natural gas prices have peaked and waned for over 20 years with high nearly every three years topping over $16.80.   The price today is trending toward that peak with a current level hovering over $5.20.   While shortages are not about supply, in this instance they are about ‘storage’.

In 2019, Trader Magazine released this report:   “The United States has an overabundance of cheap natural gas. Prices are so low and supplies so plentiful that many oil producers find it more economical to burn, or flare, the surplus than to sell it to new customers.”

Natural gas is not used just for heating it is also used to produce electricity, you know, all those clean CARS!   But New York, in all its liberal quaking, decided to halt new gas pipeline construction projects that would mitigate the NE winter shortages because in 30 years, NY plans to be 100% Green.   Of course, what they would do in the meantime to fill the void was never addressed. Cuomoism.

But it is the same logic wingnutted from the WH in requiring private companies to mandate vaccines – during a massive shortage of workers.   As a result;   a)   NYC has cancelled all births indefinitely given the walkout of nurses and staff.   b)   airlines are cancelling flights amid a shortage of attendants.   c)   large companies are scrambling to find the employees to stock the growing barren shelves.   d)   and supplies sit at loading docks awaiting nonexistent truckers to take them to the retailers. e)   as a result retailers will ramp up closures leaving commercial vacancies that will destroy the REIT markets.

b.   Despite the White House’ lame attempt to shift the blame for inflation on Trump, the obvious is well – obvious. During Trump’s presidency inflation remained a constant at roughly 1.2%.   Gasoline prices were under $2 at the pump, which trickled down to transportation including airfare and trucking.   Today, gas prices at the pump are the highest level in history!   Even when accounting for inflation adjustments, the US has just ravaged its historical max although socialist Europe still leads the globe in pricing.

Meat prices came under attack when Bill Gates sought a mandate that Americans eat crickets and infused soy. YUM!

c.   While we have been privilege to the catastrophic impact of the chip shortage on the availability of new cars, according to an analysis by Goldman Sachs, the semiconductor shortage touches a mind-blowing 169 industries.   Everything from steel products to ready-mix concrete manufacturing to industries that build air conditioning systems and refrigerators to breweries.

Who manufactures chips?

Japanese company, Renasas, provided 30% of the global car industry’s chips. However, March 2021 they experienced a massive fire that put them completely out of the production cycle.   In addition, shipping channels have been uniformly clogged creating delays lasting a month or more. Ships have actually, suddenly – run aground.   Ships have completely blocked the Suez.   Since 1869, the Suez Canal has been blocked by container ships only 5 times – over a 160 year period.   In other words this is hardly a common occurrence and deserves a bit more investigation.   The latest blockage occurred in March – just as the Japanese factory simultaneously went up in smoke.   The Ever Given was the culprit and cost $400 million per HOUR in delays.

The Ever Given is owned by the Evergreen Group based in Taiwan and operated by Chinese nationals.   Fun fact – Hillary’s secret service code name was “Evergreen”.   They have also been mired in theories that they are a major transport in the sex trafficking business.   All of which is – denied.

Isn’t it odd how all things trip and trod back to a source – Hillary Clinton…   I might add that I have no intention of committing suicide, and any statements contrary are false.  The point is – it takes quite a bit of power to yield the entire Suez Canal to ‘shortages’.   Just a phone call away.  “I need a catastrophe, block the Canal.”   “Yes sir.”.

“What a Weird Game You Play…”   To me – it all seems so boringly futile.   How can you be proud of abject devastation?  Our entire psyche is built on ‘success’ and ‘success’ is/was defined within terms of beauty ~  

Imagine having had everything and done everything?  The amount of boredom and anger that might swallow a human could be like a thunderstorm storm of all beginnings.  Because without that challenge, the human has to create chaos – in order to solve it – in order to feel successful.

SO why is it that Communism is always synonymous with supply shortages, pronounced inflation, starvation, poverty and death?

As Australia has duly noted, communism/totalitarianism not only leads to massive shortages of essential goods, it leads to alcoholism.   The only viable escape mechanism for coping.   Knowing this escape mechanism was pronounced in every recent communist country, Australia, in all its wisdom, has instituted an alcohol rationing in lockdown cities.  Problem Solved!  Just make everyone batshitake CRAZY!

But the purpose of communism is to create such dire circumstances that the poverty drives people to desperation.   And thus reveals that the creation of the shortages is vital to the institution of communist power control.

Schematics are thus manipulated.   The chess game also becomes Tactic’s II, Monopoly, Checkers, and Sims all looped into one global mainframe.   And the gamit of supply shortages becomes a Matrix of illusion and propaganda.   In 1980’s Poland, food shortages became a reality.   Buying an automobile meant putting down a deposit, making periodic inflationary payments and taking delivery 5-7 years later.   Apartments were similar.   Two bedrooms were only available if two families shared the flat.   But the waiting list could be 7-10 years.

In the US where bounty is plentiful and our resources are estimated to be worth over $45 trillion, the creation of shortages requires quite a bit of manipulation, coercion, and corruption.   All wrapped up in a neat package of pure evil.   The White House Handlers began this matrix when they banned fracking and thus diffused an oil independent nation.

But that was only the beginning.

Shutting down commerce.   Derailing employment so as to create massive vacancies which shutter small businesses.   Inserting terrorism.   Inserting illegal welfare entitlements.   These societal vagrancies are actively created, they do NOT occur by social evolution.

In actuality there are NO shortages of Anything!

Instead we are fed an intravenous disparagement of fear through climate disaster, overpopulation starvation, terrorism, disease, disease, and, did I mention – disease.   Ebola is rising! Dengue is rising!   And soon people will jump off cliffs like sheep committing Hari Kari…

All because, the hype of television media puppets who see themselves as gods of lore saving mankind from itself has been bought and ripped of every viable brain cell.

They fantasize of their mythological powers while popping meth, acid, mushrooms, and every other street drug for which I know no name…   In other words, they are chemical. Their humanism has been sucked. And this is all that’s left.   I guess, I am a bit peesedOFFFF.

US DEBT: The Good, The Bad, the Ugly – AND The Solution

On the face of it, Dave Ramsey is the go-to king for helping people pull out of their personal debt crisis.   Typically it involves restructuring the current debt, forgiveness of some of the debt, and the creation of a revised budget.

But that type of approach is not as effective when it comes to the debt of a country, and what has now become the debt of the globe. They are not comparable as apples to apples.   In the Ramsey scenario – the typical analysis reveals the person/household is in a negative to assets and income. The US debt is typically compared to GDP, which is loosely defined as income – not assets. The GDP of the US currently stands at just over $22 trillion.

Global debt is estimated to be between $250-335 trillion.   Is it even possible to ever pay that amount of money, to be debt free, or even close? Is it even necessary?

The short answer – NO and NO.

The World Bank, the IMF, the UN, always suggest that wealthier countries simply forgive the debt of the poorer countries, particularly in Africa, so that they can borrow more money that they will never be able to repay.   As a result, those poor countries sell their assets whether it is land or the resources on/within the land.   Until they have nothing left to sell – and the creditor takes control of the country.   Which is similar to the micro-lending Ponzi schematic.

The IMF advocates for “voluntary sovereign debt buybacks’.   And cites corporations as a model example.  That too is a blah economics understanding.

Assuming the number that is dangled in the atmosphere is correct and the US debt is roughly $26 trillion, the US would have to sell something, given the available cash on hand is inadequate.   In order to sell anything, the US would need a buyer with cash on hand, or at least a sufficient portion to give the deal credence.   So you have to sweeten the deal.  How does that work?  Ask a businessman/woman.

Only 30% of the debt is foreign owned – $7.8 trillion. Of the foreign holdings, the two largest holders are: China which owns about $1 trillion and Japan $1.3 trillion.   The remainder is disproportionately lumped into retirement obligations including Social Security which is $2.9 trillion, military pensions, government pensions and Medicare which account for an additional $2.1 trillion. Much of these funds are pushed into the General Fund so that they can be disbursed for emergency use and invested for liquid gains. Which is why these moneys are not sitting in a proverbial bank account earning zero percent interest and doing nothing.  HELLO!

While there is no point in buying back treasuries that are not linked to retirement, if we simply wanted to buy back foreign debt that would only amount to selling assets worth $8 trillion (rounded).

What does the federal government own?

The government assets are divided between those above ground and those below ground. Above ground includes:   land, buildings, levees, dams and hydroelectric facilities. Nothing that we ‘want’ to sell. Below Ground includes:   mineral and oil rights and leaseholds.   The asset that would generate the most cash is oil and gas resources valued at roughly $128 trillion.

That means if we sold reserves valued at $8 trillion, we would only be shorting our asset reserve by 6%. Both China and Japan are oil poor. In 2019, Japans oil imports came predominantly from Saudi Arabia and UAE. The value of those imports to Japan totaled $130 billion in 2019.   The value of oil usage annually in China is roughly $150 billion.   That would give them a breakeven on the purchase of US reserves/debt exchange of roughly 8 years.

The internal debt for pensions and such is a constant flowchart.   In other words, an expanding workforce creates the wealth to support the annual debt load.   If you contract the workforce and their paycheck volume, then Houston – you have a problem.

Everything in this world is based on one core premise:   Expansion – more people. It is the reasoning behind the mass migration of refugee illegal immigrants into Europe.   Their expansion had become a negative growth with birth rates plummeting given abortion rates rising exponentially.   People wanted more money to hoard on themselves – and children sopped up that hoarding.   So birth rates dropped to such an extreme that the very core basis of continuation as an economy began a backpedal that gained speed!

Soros convinced Merkel that allowing massive migration would help that economic curve as these immigrants contributed to society and were productive.   Obviously, that was a lie, and as soon as the unchecked immigration flooded Germany, Soros declared that Merkel had made a ‘fatal mistake’.

Merkel’s legacy will be rife with ugly regard.

And so, the Shadow Ingrates discussed how they could destroy the global economy in the shortest span of time given all of Europe was already precariously in a recession.   And they devised a pandemic.

Locking down the global economy, this was their final arrow.   Their quiver was thus empty.   They believed they had won.   The EU caved, the respective governments wholly willing to support a further indebted destruction.

But there was – One Man.   President Trump.   And despite all our allies foaming against the US, President Trump, America, and The People, our President defied what NO OTHER government dared.

Make America Great is about realigning our economy with the people.   It is about NOT giving up.   It is about curbing our deficits so as to curb our debt.   And I believe, if we were left to our own resources under a Trump presidency – we would be An Economical Power House working For The People – instead of For the Corporate Cabal/Mafia.  

And THAT is what they fear – the most!

US CoVid Response; Science and Economics

While reviewing Colorado governor Polis’ mask mandate criteria, the website stated that the Science of Mask Wearing could be found on the CDC website.   Following the link, I was taken to an article written by CDC Director Redfield and two other doctors: John Brooks, an internist whose specialty is HIV, and Jay Butler, whose concentration had been opioid crisis in Alaska.  

I.   Mask Mandates:   According to the article, they evidence the need for hospital staff to wear masks during surgery.   They state that there actually has never been a scientific study regarding mask mandates for flu or any disease because the study would be too costly.   Instead they conducted two internet polls of 500 people each asking respondents if they wore masks. That is the sum total of SCIENCE.

The article concludes that communities need to conform to normalizing masks – without indicating that they would ever reverse the mandate.   And instead of giving an indication when masks would no longer be required, they urge innovation in the design of masks so they can be more readily tolerated over long periods of time.

In other words – the CDC is stating: A) there is NO SCIENCE, B)   masks are the New Normal – forever, C)   because I say so.

II.   Schools:   While schools are either 100% virtual or partially virtual, it has been reported that 10% of Americans have no Internet – 33 million people.   Roughly 5.5 million of those people are under the age of 18 – school children.   Which means that 5.5 million children are getting no education as a result of lockdown measures.

But even this does not reveal the true dimensions of the crime.   Households may have one computer that must be shared.   Requiring adults to work from home on their laptop – may mean their children go without.   In essence, the school mandate will create a bubble of lower income children being left behind with no education at all.

The Great Divide!

III.   Lockdowns:   Lockdown measures across the globe are inconsistent and to some extent ridiculously insane.   Rome has declared a curfew from midnight to 5am to combat the spread of CoVid.   Germany has declared that entry from all EU countries is accepted – entry from any other country is not accepted unless very extreme exception is granted. A 2 week quarantine is necessary unless a ‘proven negative test’ is provided to the government.   As of November, the quarantine will only be 10 days…

Spain has declared their borders are open to all EU countries and the following list of reciprocal countries:   Australia, Canada, China, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay.

Apparently, Chinese are ok, but citizens of the US are not welcome.

Japan removed its restrictions in June for the entire country.   While the government’s response to the virus has been lauded as one of the world’s best – Japan is now in a recession. Foreign nationals from virtually any country in the world are prohibited from travel to Japan unless they quarantine for 14 days prior and have proof of a negative test. Medical travel insurance is required. And all events in Japan have been cancelled.

The population of Japan is 126.5 million.   They have had 1685 deaths attributed to CoVid, representing a death rate of .001%. Like Germany, Japan’s unemployment rate is a muddy representation.   When accounting for people who are furloughed, Japans unemployment is far greater than the 2.6% it announces, and is more likely 11.4%, which would better reflect the ongoing recession. The Logic:   14.4million people have no income, the country is in a contracted recession, to protect 1685 people who died – and 87,000 who recovered.

IV.  Unemployment:   The US unemployment rate is 7.9% which is anticipated to drop to 5% in 2021.   With the exception of Alabama, all US states report historical high rates of unemployment when lockdown measures were instituted.   And just in time for the election, WHO declared that lockdowns don’t work and urged all countries to get their economies flowing again. Tourism – was the primary reasoning.

According to recent ‘tallies’, the number of people in the US who died and either had a positive CoVid test or CoVid was presumed, and such individuals had 2 or more underlying diseases and/or conditions is roughly 220,000.   According to the CDC 6% of those people actually died because of CoVid – 13,000.   The US has the highest presumed death tally, but not all countries count the same – in fact, each country counts their death rate according to the way they prefer, many do not include nursing home deaths, or outside of hospital deaths.   And some have no way of making a determination at all – and simply provide a good faith estimate.

If 52% of all deaths are from nursing home residents, and those tallies are not incorporated into other countries rates, then making ANY comparison is impossible.

Essentially, comparisons of unemployment, case rates, and death rates are a castrated hodge-podge of discombobulation.

V.   Growth Rates.   According to trading economics, the growth rate/decline as of June 2020 by country showed the US has slammed down to -9.   But that doesn’t tell the whole story… Germany tanked to -11.3 and its previous growth was -2.2.   Germany was already in a recession before CoVid hit.   In fact, the same negatives reveal that many countries were in a recession before the virus took it’s economic lockdown toll:   Netherlands, Iceland, Hong Kong, France, Canada, Austria, Slovakia, Mongolia, Japan, Iran, Czech, Brazil, Ukraine, Thailand, New Zealand, Belgium, Peru, UK, Spain, Mexico, Belize…etc…etc…etc…

France previous growth rate was -5.7 and as of June 2020 hit -18.9, more than double the US.   The EU Growth rate was -2.7 and tanked to -14.4 as of June 2020.

What does this reveal?

The real MASK mandate was CoVid was used to hide the Bubble that had already hit the global economy.   And comparatively – President Trump’s actions and policies kept the US in much better condition than our allies.

President Trump: Art of War – A RESET

Distraction.  

For many, the distractions have been so perversely perfect that no one even remembers what was happening before CoVid.   But even the first round of CoVid wasn’t enough for The Deep State – they needed massive disruptions to shroud the entire globe in an image or illusion of darkness so pervasive we would forget and ultimately – succumb.

In 2019:

  1. Biden was in the hot seat as more and more details emerged about his and his son, Hunter’s, involvement in corrupt China deals.   Ukraine had opened an investigation into Biden’s possible embezzlement of funds through Burisma under the auspices of Hillary Clinton during her stint as Secretary of State, and Poroshenko the CIA planted president of Ukraine.
  2. Trump’s impeachment crashed and burned opening investigations into Schiff, FISA abuse involving Obama and Biden, and trashed witnesses.   CIA and FBI officials were fired for breach of trust and duty.
  3. The economy was soaring!
  4. Illegal immigration was caving despite caravan attempts to crash the border. The Wall was being built!
  5. Trade with Germany was being aggressively reorganized via the imposition of equal tariffs.
  6. Trump was winning the war with trade with China as their economy began to crumble on itself.
  7. Small businesses were flourishing.
  8. Cities were posting surplus revenues.
  9. Trump was working to make medical costs transparent and reduce the cost of prescription drugs.
  10. Trump had escalated the fight against sex trafficking and undercover agents were mopping up criminals.
  11. Unemployment was the lowest it has been in 50 years!

And The Deep State was getting crushed.

For the most part people were happy, taxes were lower, wages were higher, real estate was booming, and the US was once again emerging as the most lucrative nation on this globe while the EU continued to spiral into destitution and recession.

Another four years of this bounty would surely set back the globalization plan by decades. The EU Commission had become a laughing stock, Trudeau seemed brain-dead, and China was pressured.  What to do – what to do…

Ramping up a full scale war under the guise of internal implosion has always been the mantra of those who saw the US as the greatest obstacle to their success.   But land needed to be preserved – so any type of nuclear possession was not an option.   Destroying everything President Trump had accomplished would guarantee their thrones would remain intact while simultaneously reducing the population, mostly the elderly as they consume the most resources without producing anything of value.

EVERYTHING preached about CoVid 19 is wrong!  

BLM Protests reveal mostly white people – Antifa – leading the riots.

The Illusion Prevails!

Studies of previous pandemics reveal that death and infection rates decline in exact correlation to the mutation rate. For example the H1N1 virus that was first ‘discovered’ in 1918 mutated over 1400 times over a 60 year period.   Thus any test would pick up antibodies that could have been dormant the entire time as in all viruses.

The newest claim is that black people are more susceptible to CoVid than fair skinned people, a claim that was invented to help stoke the BLM Riots. Of course simple research of death rates in Africa and India blow that very ridiculous statistic out of the water; India deaths = about 17000 out of a population of 1.364billion, and Africa deaths = roughly 8200 out of a population of 1.29billion – TOTAL.  Not only do they have dark skin, they have the worst healthcare systems and highest poverty rates in the world!

Odd…

To date, the CoVid virus has mutated roughly 6-10 times based on false data of its origins – but who is counting. Mutations mean the DNA alters, the genetic makeup of the virus alters, and according to a study done in 2012 by NIH, the antibodies that protect subsequent infections work in direct reverse correlation. In other words, as the virus mutated, people had less infection rates just as they will with CoVid – which has already been in existence for 60 years.  

And just like TB and H1N1, if a person was exposed at any time over the last 60 years to any variation of CoVid, those antibodies would show up in the current Test scheme as a ‘positive result’ – thereby making the Test absolutely – worthless and a vaccine – absolutely worthless!

Ironically, just as the BLM anarchy begins to blowup, CoVid and Fauci suddenly make a reappearance on stage 1.   China announces a new and improved virus trend…   and the world bows diligently to the dogmatic dirge of Chinese propaganda.  Again.

Why?

Obviously China does NOT want another 4 years of Trump. The Deep State failed miserably the first 3 years – and obviously the two entities collaborated to destroy the US.   China gets portions of the land, The Deep State reaps the reward of more $$$$$$, the New Green Deal will give them beaucoup markets to drive, populations will die, history will be recreated, and a totalitarian regime will take control.

SCREECH – RESET

We have an incredible powerhouse in President Trump!   He is our saving grace – if the Deep State is this scared of losing – it means our President is Truly a Fearless Leader!  It means we would be less than cowards to back away now.   It means we need to be re-energized and focus on what CAN be done instead of the media feed of illusion and distraction!

NOW MORE THAN EVER OUR COUNTRY, OUR LIVES, OUR LIVELIHOOD ARE BEING ATTACKED – ART OF WAR 

  1.   Critical Factors:  strategy, alliance and unity
  2.   Know the enemies weaknesses and plan attacks accordingly
  3.   Flip defense to offensive strategy
  4.   Utilize spies and attack with one agenda – TO Win.
  5.   Weakening the enemy allows them to regroup – war means they must be eliminated.

US INCOME INEQUALITY: How we got here and how we can change

If we knew what causes income inequality peaks, could we change it?  

As history reveals, Income Inequality is cyclical. The current peak began in 1970 and there would seem to be little in the stratosphere to bridge that from continuing unabated.

Historically, between 1850 and 1950 the income equality among all peoples of the US, UK and Netherlands stabilized.   But across the board after WWII, those numbers spiked and continued a straight upward trajectory.   Economists vary somewhat on the current causes of the spike, but a few make logical sense:

  1. Globalization. Globalization meant increased trade, meant cheaper goods from China, meant labour in the US could not compete, meant labour caved and created a ridge of zero growth for an entire working class sector. It wasn’t labour unions, it was competition.   It was the beginning of the end for small mom and pop stores as big money swirled in and created the mega markets replete with cheap Chinese products.   One stop shop – save time – buy more – charge it!  Of course free trade wasn’t actually ‘free’ – tariffs were imposed over every market and those tariffs were not equal, hence trade imbalance began simultaneously. Despite being advised to not lower tariff’s, Reagan did anyway, no other country followed suit, and the US deficit spiraled out of control while China and the EU laughed.

And over the course of 50 years, not one president was willing to fix trade to make it truly ‘free’ – as in no tariffs.   Trump offered zero tariff trade with Germany, the EU, Canada, and Mexico – the EU and Germany declined.

  1. Technology Revolution.   While no one wants to sensor technology or squelch it, it has vast ramifications on income and labor and it can take a generation or more to catch up.   It creates bubbles of wealth for people that have no real philanthropic bent other than to funnel their wealth into tax avoidance foundations. Technology advancement also alienates a class of people who don’t have the ability or wherewithal to create an entirely new career or expertise. As such, they move ‘down’ the ladder.
  2. Education.   In Europe it is accepted that not everyone attends college, in fact the percentage is relatively small.   The US proposes that everyone is ‘entitled’ to a college degree because that enables them to make more money…   Really?   A degree in Art, or Language, of Philosophy, or Communications is really a non-degree and yet they are the most prolific.   While Germany has the right idea, they make it a communist dictatorial determination instead of a choice.   Germany stresses specific technology or trade certifications in lieu of college.   The stigma of not being a college graduate is mitigated, and a specialized trade is facilitated. The number of college graduates in Germany is roughly 20%, compared to the US rate of 34%. But what happens after graduating is more important.   And that is where a middle class is created.
  1. Taxes.   A touchy subject to be sure but when the 1%ers are paying the same rate after deductions as the average household, obviously this is not a true progressive system – and is likely meaningless with the exception of those on the cusp of moderately higher incomes being squeezed.

How do you keep the billionaires in the US if the Tax Man is going to up the ante?

Technically speaking, despite the US calling itself a Republic, it truly is a Monarchy with totalitarian bits and pieces.   The billionaires are the monarchs, and everyone else, the peasants, are left to scramble in order to eek a living.   In the US we’ve simply eliminated the terminology and replaced it with alternate terms that effect the same result – Monarchial rule.

The Bolsheviks assassinated the Tzar of Russia and his entire family because according to socialist history books, the peasants claimed an uprising due to wealth inequality.   But the Bolsheviks simply instituted their own version of Monarchial rule under the guise of Communism, the faces of the rulers changed, and money shifted hands.

This ‘shift’ is what the Socialists in the US are hedging for in order to make the Marxist totalitarian state – complete.  This is our fight!

Billionaires have two obvious qualities:  ; 1. They like to spend money on lavish things that only they can afford and, 2. They like power.

So if you are going to keep your billionaires you have to be willing to concede either power or taxes.  Painful.

Ultimately, today,  in order to reduce income inequality one measure that Trump is vehemently pursuing is scaling back tariff differentials. Another is Sovereign sustainability.

While taxes were an initial consideration, the US system is so convoluted at this point it is near impossible to scrap the entire tax structure and recreate a true progressive flat tax – unless by EO.

When Trump is re-elected, Education could be the next transformation.   Reducing federal funding of universities and redirecting that funding toward technical and trade schooling would not only eliminate the socialist indoctrination, it would secure a greater number of students toward an attainable job market sophistication. Ultimately lifting the whiners out of media attention and forcing universities to rethink their curriculum methodology and their current superfluous degree programs.

Because today, in America, you can have a bachelors degree, $150,000 student debt, and be qualified to work as a hamburger flipper.

Like Climate Change, history reveals valuable insight.  Sometimes it is necessary to research a bit more aggressively – instead of simply trying to find the history that fits an agenda.   Putting the pieces together means Trump cannot accomplish this alone.  It means redirecting all the hate filled memes and  criticism toward a viable solution.   And then, there is TRUTH.

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.
