Thought For The Day - 12/16/2017

I’m excited to say we live in one of the most extraordinary times in human history. The old way of doing things in virtually every aspect of human civilization has either broken down, or is breaking down as I write this. Communications, media, finance, money itself, etc. The list is seemingly endless, and education is no exception. In fact, I think education is an example of extremely low-hanging fruit and will be disrupted and decentralized in unimaginable ways in the years ahead.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
In the decades to come, the people who will increasingly shape our world probably won’t have a college degree at all - and that’s probably a good thing.
Michael Krieger

I shudder at the thought.

Please take a look at these "insanely successful" college dropouts:

http://www.businessinsider.com/16-insanely-successful-college-dropouts-2015-6/#acle-billionaire-larry-ellison-dropped-out-of-two-colleges-11

Yes they have been "successful", but in general that success has come from the disruption of existing businesses and ways of life. And the main result of that disruption has been two things:

  • wealth for the disruptor and his coterie; and
  • poverty for everyone else.

I'm all for positive change. But when overwhelming changes cause widespread unemployment, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and sickness ... it's time to rethink what the hell is going on.

We're subjecting the bulk of humanity to the same pressures which led to the extinction of multiple species on our planet. Is that what we want? I doubt it.

But it seems to be what people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg want. And lately they've been getting what THEY want, regardless of what WE want.

Oppressed peoples have the right to rise up against their oppressors. Isn't that what the Declaration of Independence says?

Daimler Produces Electric Trucks

Automotive news from Germany:

Daimler has delivered its first electric truck. They are only used on short routes.

Is this being done for environmental reasons, or for geo-political reasons?

Whatever the case, I don't want one. Do you?

Don't Iraq Iran

The case against Iraqing Iran includes the following points:

  • Threatening war is a violation of the U.N. Charter.
  • Waging war is a violation of the U.N. Charter and of the Kellogg-Briand Pact.
  • Waging war without Congress is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
  • Have you seen Iraq lately?
  • Have you seen the entire region?
  • Have you seen Afghanistan? Libya? Syria? Yemen? Pakistan? Somalia?

War supporters said the U.S. urgently needed to attack Iran in 2007. It did not attack. The claims turned out to be lies. Even a National Intelligence Estimate in 2007 pushed back and admitted that Iran had no nuclear weapons program.

Having a nuclear weapons program is not a justification for war, legally, morally, or practically. The United States has nuclear weapons and no one would be justified in attacking the United States.

But, as we all know, Israel and Saudi Arabia want Iran to be attacked, so the US will do it ... sooner or later.

Maybe we should impeach the president for crimes he MIGHT commit. Would that make sense to you?

Does Strzok Belong In Jail ???

Here is what former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom had to say:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-16/ex-fbi-assistant-director-strzok-fabricated-information-and-belongs-leavenworth

Works for me.

And I would add Comey, Mueller, Hillary, and Debbie W-S to the list of people who belong in the pen.

Making Ireland Great Again

US Border Patrol is hiring contractors supplied by Accenture, an international firm with HQ in Dublin, Ireland:

https://www.activistpost.com/2017/12/us-customs-turns-to-private-contractor-to-fill-gap-in-border-agents.html

and

So ... no US company can do this? How does this "make America great again"?

Trump and his people are morons.

The One Thing Which Is NEVER Going To Happen

Here it is:

A One-State Solution with Equal Rights is the Only Answer to Trump’s Jerusalem Declaration

The demand for a democracy with equal rights over all of historic Palestine must be made loud and clear. Israel must make way for a political reality where the voices of all people are heard and the rights of all people are guaranteed.

You can read the rest @
http://www.mintpressnews.com/one-state-solution-with-equal-rights-is-the-only-answer-to-trumps-jerusalem-declaration/235569/

Israel will NEVER allow this. They would rather destroy the entire world, including the US, than to allow such a thing to happen.

You need to think long and hard about why this is so, and about why the US appears to be 100% behind them.

What Do You Do When There Is No Cash ???

You create your own, of course:

Hard cash is tough to find in Venezuela as the country struggles with financial hardship. So residents in the capital on Friday unveiled their own currency.

The panal, which means honeycomb in Spanish, can be spent in just a few stores. But residents of one neighborhood desperate for spending cash said they welcome the idea proposed by pro-government groups.

"There is no cash on the street," said Liset Sanchez, a 36-year-old housewife who plans to use her freshly printed panals to buy rice for her family. "This currency is going to be a great help for us."

You can read the rest @
https://www.yahoo.com/news/poor-venezuelan-neighbors-solution-cash-crunch-223038691.html

We in the US have been enslaved by the Federal Reserve System. Maybe it's time we created our own banks and a stable currency which works for us instead of being just another tool for the rich bastards who are wrecking our lives.

Here is a website with ideas on how to do just that:

Still Obsessing On Nixon ???

Why are George Clooney and his ilk still obsessing on Richard Nixon?

http://deadline.com/2017/12/netflix-sets-up-watergate-series-with-director-george-clooney-matt-charman-1202220025/

Should the truth be told, Bill and Hillary Clinton appear to be just as depraved as Nixon was ... and between the two of them caused at least as much death and suffering as he did.

By the way, the purpose of the Watergate break-in was to pilfer the files of the sex trafficking ring being run out of DNC HQ. You can read all about it in the 1992 book Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin.

Now ask yourself this - how did the Democrats "suddenly" get access to all the information about sexual harassment which is now pouring out of Hollywood and DC? Isn't it likely it came from whatever spy ring Hillary, Huma, and Debbie W-S were running?

I think that ALL the files which were on Anthony Weiner's laptop and the hard drives abandoned by the Awan family should be published, so that We The People can see what has been going on. Also ask yourself why the FBI, which clearly has been protecting Hillary from prosecution, is keeping all those files from us.

Trump's Seven Forbidden Words

In an astonishing order, the Trump administration has banned the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using seven words - including “fetus,” “transgender,” “diversity” and “science-based” - in any documents used to prepare the agency’s budget, The Washington Post has reported.

CDC policy analysts were reportedly informed of the forbidden words in a 90-minute meeting in Atlanta on Thursday with senior CDC officials. The other banned words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement” and “evidence-based,” according to the Post, citing an unnamed policy analyst. The meeting was led by a senior member of the CDC’s Office of Financial Services. She didn’t know why the words were forbidden and said she was merely relaying information, the Post reported.

Instead of the words “science-based” or “evidence-based,” analysts were told they could use instead: The “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the newspaper reported.

The Post’s source could not recall a previous time in any other administration when words were forbidden.

Before now I was willing to cut him some slack, but I have to admit it's time for Trump to leave office.

He may or may not be "mentally unfit", but he's WAY TOO FAR out in left field.

FBI Helped Clinton Campaign

According to this report, the FBI interfered in the 2016 presidential election:

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/major-scandal-u-s-congressman-says-that-there-was-a-concerted-effort-within-the-fbi-to-help-hillary-clinton-win-the-election

Yes - it was the FBI, not Russia. And that means all the Russiagate BS is just that - BULLSHIT.

How can a criminal organization "investigate" itself?

Do we even NEED the FBI? Can you name one major crime or REAL terrorist attack they prevented ... or even solved? There are several they seem to have PROMOTED, but none they prevented or solved.

And without question, they "blew" the JFK murder investigation, the MLK murder investigation, the RFK murder investigation, the OKC bombing investigation, the 9/11 investigation, the anthrax investigation, the Boston Marathon bombing investigation, etc., etc., etc.

What really are these people good for?

Tesla May Be Worth ZERO

That's the opinion voiced in this report:

US Middle East Policy Is All About Israel

Israel Pursuing War against Iran Obliquely through Al-Qaeda and Directly via Airstrikes

Washington’s obsession with attempting to intervene in Syria was never really aimed at Syria, but was instead aimed at containing Iranian influence for the benefit of the Israeli government. Now, with the failure of that mission, Israel has decided it needs to step up its own game.

We're entering yet another stage of Israel's war against everyone, including the US. Isn't it past time we started looking out for our own interests?

But I know many of you are gonna believe Israeli BS instead. What a shame.

UN Investigates US Poverty

A journey through a land of extreme poverty: welcome to America

The UN’s Philip Alston is an expert on deprivation – and he wants to know why 41m Americans are living in poverty. The Guardian joined him on a special two-week mission into the dark heart of the world’s richest nation.

You can read all about it @
https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/dec/15/america-extreme-poverty-un-special-rapporteur

Funny (as in strange) ... why isn't the US worried about the poverty of its own people?

And this is NOT a Democrat vs. Republican issue. None of "our" politicians really give a damn.

Maybe what we need is blue helmets patrolling our streets and Cuban doctors tending to our sick and infirm. I'd be OK with that if it would really help.

Is Your Cell Phone Killing You ???

This report seems to suggest that your cell phone is slowly killing you:

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/12/14/california-cellphone-radiation-guidelines/

It's also spying on you. Turn it off, and leave it home.

Unless you WANT to get brain cancer.

Matt Damon Just Does Not Get It

Matt Damon keeps making dumb remarks about sex crimes in Hollywood and DC. You can find some of them here:

http://www.vulture.com/2017/12/matt-damon-shares-all-his-bad-opinions-on-sexual-misconduct.html

Here is what you are missing, Matt - they want a policy of ZERO TOLERANCE for the sexual shenanigans and crimes of men. And in a zero tolerance world, a scratch receives the same punishment as a bullet to the head.

And if you think about it, Matt - i.e., think before opening your mouth again - you might be able to see the big picture: NOTHING of importance is going to change.

What do I mean by that? Simple - in the US, the powers that be have ALWAYS enforced a policy of "unconditional surrender". NOT a policy of fairness, or even justice - only UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER. Ask the Indians, the Japanese, the Iraqis - they'll tell you what's what.

And since this is obviously the policy of the #metoo crowd, the only thing which will change is the gender of the monsters who are running this place.

I will, however, concede that the new bosses may indeed be meaner and more wicked than the old bosses. Those seeking revenge tend to be that way. But we'll have to wait and see on that one. So far, they're merely ripping apart our social fabric and have not yet established the one which will follow.

Voter Fraud In Alabama ???

The possibility that there was widespread voter fraud during the recent Alabama senate election between Doug Jones and Roy Moore has become very real after a Jones voter was caught on camera discussing how his supporters came from different parts of the country to vote for the Democrat.

The clip, which has gone viral on Facebook, was captured by the local Fox affiliate shortly after the media had confirmed that Jones had pulled off the stunning upset.

After being asked by a local reporter why he was excited to see Jones victory, the man responded with a comment that could easily be interpreted as proof that voter fraud did indeed happen.

“Because we came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together and we got our boy elected!” the Jones supporter stunningly revealed.

After learning about the rigging of the 2016 Democratic party primaries, I can easily believe this. This apparent fraud should be investigated while the recount is conducted.

By the way, US Senators represent their sovereign states ... not the people of their states or the US population at large. Direct election of senators should NEVER have been allowed.

In addition, the MSM interference in this special election was no less grievous than the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 general election. The USA is no "democracy" - this whole system is a sick joke.

UN Troops To Chicago ???

Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went even further on Thursday, suggesting the United Nations perhaps send in peacekeepers in the face of what he called a “quiet genocide.”

Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities.

Using Robots To Combat Homeless Humans

The lack of compassion displayed by the government toward the homeless is already on the rise. But it goes beyond government, and has sadly begun permeating throughout society. Now it appears that the anti-human agenda will have a new way to eradicate all interaction while dealing with anyone struggling to survive – sweep them away with robots!

And “lovely” San Francisco is ground zero, where a robot with animals painted on it patrols outside the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ... to get the homeless humans off the street.

Melissa Dykes looks at what human beings who have fallen on hard times due to a variety of circumstances (including the negative actions of government itself) have to look forward to in our “post-modern world” of diminishing humanity.

You can watch the video here:

https://www.activistpost.com/2017/12/spca-hypocrites-now-using-robots-scare-away-homeless-people.html

Our growing lack of compassion toward our fellow humans never ceases to amaze me. Here is another example:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/11/world/canada/starving-polar-bear.html

If the pictures / videos of this starving polar bear were replaced with pictures / videos of homeless people no one would give a damn. We have more compassion for the bear than for our neighbors.

Sick, sick, sick !!!

Is Puerto Rico Our Future ???

This report discusses what it's like to live without the "necessities of modern life" in Puerto Rico:

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/12/14/puer-d14.html

I suggest two things:

  • think hard about this, since we all may suffer a similar fate; and
  • figure out for yourself what really is "necessary" (e.g., air, water, food, shelter, energy, etc.) and find out how to get such things in an emergency.

When the shit hits the fan, no one is going to help us; certainly not our bumbling and bankrupt central government.

What REALLY Happened In Vegas ???

It's been 2 1/2 months, and we still don't know what really happened in Vegas:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/14/us/las-vegas-shooting-2-months-questions/index.html

Doesn't it seem to you that the Feds (FBI, DOJ, etc.) have really dropped the ball on this one? What kind of "homeland security" do we have if no one can predict these crimes and no one can solve them?

If you'd like to watch evidence suggesting there were multiple shooters, including some AT THE VENUE, check out this YouTube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkZ9-FEEJfO4MrfLz2L27qg/featured

I personally favor the Saudi connection theory, but it's starting to look like we'll never know what really happened.

You can read about it here:

Is there ANYONE in government we can trust? I doubt it.

ISIS Gets Weapons From US

It's a tangled web, but ISIS gets weapons from the US. You can read about it here:

But that's not unusual. We armed Hitler, Saddam, al-Qaeda, and many of our "enemies".

It's the American way - befriend them, arm them, cash the checks, revile them, and kill them.

Bizarre Quote For The Day - 12/13/2017

Killer Robots CANNOT Be Banned

Some lawmakers want to ban killer robots. Here is one report on the issue:

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/12/12/peninsula-lawmaker-targets-killer-robots-with-proposed-resolution/

Such bans are pointless. Israel already has killer robots, and it's extremely unlikely they will allow themselves to be limited by such a "ban":

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Politics-And-Diplomacy/Dogo-The-tiny-Israeli-killer-robot-472015

Once again, the failure of the international community to rein in Israeli lawlessness is likely to have tragic lethal consequences.

Swiss Are The World's Best Preppers

More than any other country, Switzerland’s ethos is centered around preparing for civilizational collapse.

All around Switzerland, for example, one can find thousands of water fountains fed by natural springs. Zurich is famous for its 1200 fountains, some of them quite beautiful and ornate, but it’s the multiple small, simple fountains in every Swiss village that really tell the story. Elegant, yes, but if and when central water systems are destroyed these fountains are a decentralized and robust system for providing everyone with drinkable water.

The Swiss political system is also decentralized. If the central government fails, the Swiss might not even notice. The mountains and valleys also mean that Swiss towns and villages are geographically independent yet linked in a spider-web of robust connections.

Thank you, identity politicians.

Thank you, social media.

Oceans Of Plastic

In the foreseeable future, the weight of plastic trash in the ocean will be greater than the weight of all fish.

Already it’s been estimated by researchers that virtually all shellfish, and one-quarter of all fish, contain traces of plastic.

Every year about 300 million tons of plastic are produced and eight million tons wind up in our oceans. That’s the equivalent of over 500 trillion plastic water bottles. If you were to stack these bottles one on top of the other, you would be able to make two full trips from Earth, to the Moon and back.

But the problem is not only the millions of water bottles humans consume and discard each hour, but also the plastic we cannot see.

In the world they are creating there are four classes of people:

The owners, creators, and users think they bear no responsibility for the useless eaters, and so they disappear them and let them starve.

Government Doesn't Want You To Be Independent

Hermine Ricketts and her husband Tom Carroll may grow fruit trees and flowers in the front yard of their Miami Shores house. They may park a boat or jet ski in their driveway. They may place statues, fountains, gnomes, pink flamingoes or Santa in a Speedo on their property.

Vegetables, however, are not allowed.

Ricketts and Carroll thought they were gardeners when they grew tomatoes, beets, scallions, spinach, kale and multiple varieties of Asian cabbage. But according to a village ordinance that restricts edible plants to backyards only, they were actually criminals. They didn’t think they were engaged in a Swiss chard conspiracy or eggplant vice, yet they were breaking the law.

What Does Bible Say About Jerusalem ???

Visiting Brussels on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not only defended President Trump’s decision to declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but pressed all European nations to follow his example.

Netanyahu cited the Bible as proof of the position, saying that the Bible makes it clear Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, saying it was “absurd” of European officials not to accept that position out of hand.

https://www.npr.org/2017/12/09/569553464/to-some-zionist-christians-and-jews-the-bible-says-jerusalem-is-israels-capital

To me, Jerusalem is G-d's holy city. And since He is everyone's G-d, Jerusalem is everyone's holy city.

It is only Israel's "capital" if the Zionist state becomes a theocracy and the Shekinah dwells within the rebuilt temple. It is said that the Shekinah was present in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness and the First Temple, but not in the Second.

By the way, Netanyahu's argument is essentially the same one used by the Hebrews when they invaded Canaan the first time ... that G-d promised them the land and told them to exterminate its inhabitants. Isn't that what the modern day Israelis are doing all over again in their Balfour Declaration backed invasion of the holy land?

The difference between then and now is that then G-d was physically present with them and led them on their journey and invasion of the holy land. Then, the temple was built in the presence of and at the direction of the living G-d. Now, they want to build a temple which they assume the living G-d will occupy.

That's a BIG difference, and possibly a crucial one.

Thoughts For The Day - 12/11/2017

Hell is everything that Christian mythology paints it as. Hell is pain, death, suffering, bleakness, and fire. But it isn’t some mystical dimension where rapists and Hitler are suffering for eternity. Hell is right here on earth, war is hell; it’s not made to punish evil people, it’s made by evil people and it’s the innocent who suffer. It’s children, parents, brothers, sisters, people just trying to live their lives, all being tortured and killed, brutalized and raped. The innocent are the ones left weeping while the evil ones reap rewards. War is indeed hell in ways that no one can understand unless they’ve seen it. I have not been to hell, but I could see it from where I stood.

The One Entitlement Program Which MUST Be Ended

You guessed it - the US military:

Every year, the US pours more than $1 trillion of taxpayer money into the most expensive and least productive "jobs program" in human history -- the US military. This "weaponized Keynesianism" sees war as the only legitimate way for the government to create employment on the public dime.

Final Refuge For Useless Eaters - Plasma For Pay

Here is the future America has in store for its useless eaters (i.e., the disappeared for whom the government and US corporations take no responsibility) - selling their plasma just to survive:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-10/plasma-pay-broke-millennials-sell-blood-just-survive

A company recently put up billboards in the Austin metro area asking for donors. I checked it out, and they wanted at least 5 donations in a relatively short period to get the $300 being offered. Anyone doing that more than once will definitely be damaging their health.

But in America, if you become a useless eater no one really gives a damn. They'll suck the life out of you and toss your body on the trash heap of "progress" without giving it a thought.

Facebook Ripping Society Apart ???

Here is a cogent assessment of the effects of social media:

Facebook’s former vice president for user growth Chamath Palihapitiya recently gave a talk at the Stanford Graduate School of Business that’ll probably make you think twice about your social media use. The entire talk is well worth a watch, but some of his most prominent remarks included:

  • That he feels “tremendous guilt” about Facebook. "I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works."
  • "The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created [including the hearts, likes, and thumbs up of various social media channels] are destroying how society works." He added, "[There’s] no civil discourse, no cooperation; [only] misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem - this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem."
  • Regarding an incident in which seven innocent men in India were lynched after a hoax about kidnappings spread through WhatsApp: "That’s what we’re dealing with. And imagine taking that to the extreme, where bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people to do anything you want. It’s just a really, really bad state of affairs."
  • Unsurprisingly, when it comes to social media, his children "aren’t allowed to use that shit."

Also unsurprisingly, "our" government is not addressing this issue ... other than to enlist Facebook and its ilk in their efforts to spy on and manipulate us.

In my view, we should turn off the Internet and confiscate the remaining assets of Facebook, Google, and other "social media" companies.

Is The Arab Spring Over ???

This report about Tunisia appears to say their Arab Spring is over:

http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/tunisia-truth-commission-divides-nation-a-1180656.html

By the way, the "truth commission" methodology mentioned in the report is similar to the "#metoo movement" in the US. Will we see a different outcome here? I doubt it. We are merely shifting from one type of police state to another.

Jerusalem, The Capital Of Apartheid

Here is something you don't see too often in the US - a truthful assessment of Israeli policy:

By acknowledging Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, President Trump has demonstrated a genuinely deep historical insight. Even if Israel itself had claimed any other city as its capital – be it Tel-Aviv, where Israel’s declaration of independence took place in 1948; or Hebron, where once Abraham bought a graveyard, and where nowadays a few hundred Jewish settlers terrorize hundreds of thousands of Palestinians; or even Vilnius, once known as “Lithuania’s Jerusalem” for its prosperous Jewish community (Israelis now parrot that “every people has a right to choose its own capital”, so why not?) – the leader of the free world would have been correct in pointing at Jerusalem as the true and genuine capital of the Israeli Apartheid.

Since the fall of the South African Apartheid in 1994, no capital – in fact, no other city on the globe – has been divided into 60% first-class full citizens and 40% second-class “residents”. Precisely this, however, is the essence of “united” Jerusalem. When Israel occupied and annexed the eastern parts of the city in 1967, it regretfully found out that they were inhabited – by Palestinians, more than 300.000 of them by now. These Palestinians were not granted the Israeli citizenship, but merely turned into tolerated inhabitants, as if they had somehow infiltrated into their own city.

Spot on !!!

An early UN resolution declared that Jerusalem should be an international city. Frankly, this is exactly what I believe the Bible envisions for the Holy City.

But the Jews (who represent only ONE TRIBE of Jacob's descendants) are turning it into THEIR city, the site for THEIR temple and no other. Once they are finished, there will be no going back.

What is their solution to today's state of apartheid in Jerusalem? To force the Palestinians out (i.e., ethnic cleansing), and in a very real sense they are forcing EVERYONE out.

Is that what G-d wants? That is not what this prophecy appears to say:

And I saw no temple therein [i.e., in Jerusalem]: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Revelation 21:22-27 KJV

And by the way, President Carter was right when he accused Israel of apartheid. It's a shame we didn't listen to him.

Hollywood Hates The United States

After fleecing us for decades, Hollywood now openly LOATHES the United States of America.

Here is an example of that hatred:

http://www.shtfplan.com/conspiracy-fact-and-theory/liberal-hollywood-darling-sarah-silverman-describes-being-scared-of-the-american-flag-attempts-to-connect-patriotism-with-being-a-nazi_12092017

If you want to know more, read my book No More Patriots (https://www.amazon.com/No-More-Patriots-Howard-Uhal-ebook/dp/B00X2SU5Q6/).

The end of the USA as we know it is closer than many believe. And I don't think you're going to like what takes it place.

How Wealth Disparity Began

According to this study, the first "super-rich" got wealthy through the use of farm animals:

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/dec/10/super-rich-elites-inequality-origins-ancient-farming-mckie-anthropology-society

And when the animals got too old to work, they sent them off to the knackers (like Boxer in George Orwell's Animal Farm).

Santa's Slaves

Amazon drivers [are] forced to deliver 200 parcels a day with no time for toilet breaks while earning less than minimum wage. Staff have so little time for food or toilet stops they snatch hurried meals on the run and urinate into plastic bottles they keep in their vans.

I intend to help by not buying anything this holiday season.

Sorry, friends and relatives, but my "Christmas gift" this year is to give the delivery drivers a break.

The Future Of Physical Labor

This report asks whether exoskeletons will be the future of physical labor:


For a while, maybe yes.

But once wearable robotics are perfected, the only purpose the human serves is to be the "brain" of the contraption. And once AI/robotic brains are perfected, the human will be obsolete for that purpose.

Frankly, we are becoming obsolete for just about EVERY purpose. Why is no one making plans for THAT?

Or maybe there is a plan ... but does it involve anything other than our extermination?

Bitcoin Whales

Like everything else, Bitcoin has its "one percenters":

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-12-08/the-bitcoin-whales-1-000-people-who-own-40-percent-of-the-market

Face it - nothing in capitalism really benefits the population at large. A few people with foresight and/or luck can score big, but the Average Joe usually gets nothing.

And once the robot armies take over, we'll get even less.

US Witchcraft On The Rise

According to this report, witchcraft is enjoying a revival in the US:

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/12/08/modrn-day-witchcraft/

What does the Bible say?

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 KJV

So let me get this straight ... we're going to condemn Roy Moore but promote witchcraft?

Hmmm ...

What Are These Troops Doing ???

The U. S. military has more than 44,000 troops across the globe that the Pentagon claims it cannot track, according to a recent report.

“We are not at a point where we can give numbers other than those officially stated,” said Army Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman.

The report — compiled by the Defense Manpower Data Center under the Office of the Secretary of Defense — shows more than 44,000 personnel in a category labeled “Unknown.”

You can read the rest @
https://www.stripes.com/report-44-000-unknown-military-personnel-stationed-around-the-world-1.501292

As far as I am concerned, the only "enemies" we have are people under attack by the US deep state and/or people the US is attacking for the benefit of Israel.

Bring them all home, including the 44,000 "unknowns". Station them on our southern border to halt the flow of drugs and to repel the Mexican invasion.

Why Are They Resigning ???

US Constitution, Article I, Section 6
1: The Senators and Representatives shall ... in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same ...

This latest wave of sex harassment claims and resulting resignations of Senators and Representatives violates the US Constitution.

It is yet another grievous assault on that sacred charter. I do not condone those who broke our laws, nor do I condone those who use tricks to subvert our constitution and drive people out of office without due process.

Show some backbone, keep it in your pants, and keep your hands to yourself.

Quote For The Day - 12/8/2017

"The ugly truth is out there, but you have to want to know it."
Sheldon Richman

Bitcoin Doesn't Exist

Here is a fascinating series of essays from "Dr. D" at The Automatic Earth website:

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/12/bitcoin-doesnt-exist-1/

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/12/bitcoin-doesnt-exist-2/

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/12/bitcoin-doesnt-exist-3/

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/12/bitcoin-doesnt-exist-4/

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/12/bitcoin-doesnt-exist-5/

Here is what I don't understand - check out these key provisions in the US Constitution:

Article I, Section 8
[The Congress shall have Power]
5: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
6: To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

Article I, Section 10
1: No State shall ... coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts ...

I would argue that Congress has the sole power to determine what is money in the US, and if warranted could determine at any time that Bitcoin is NOT money and declare its use as money to be ILLEGAL.

Their failure to do so and take back control of our money supply from the banks is even worse than their failure to take back war making power from the Executive Branch. Both failures are leading directly to the demise of our republic.

But let's not worry about that. I think they should spend all their free time going after the male sexual predators in the US. That's a MUCH more important issue.

Earth Is Humming

According to this report, the earth generates a mysterious hum:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/science/scientists-capture-mysterious-hum-coming-11660498

Perhaps the key to "space travel" lies not above the earth, but inside it. Maybe there is an inter-dimensional portal within the earth and THAT'S the cause of the hum.

Saudi Prince Bought Da Vinci Painting

According to this report, the Saudi crown prince bought the $450 million da Vinci painting:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/saudi-arabias-crown-prince-identified-as-buyer-of-record-breaking-da-vinci-1512674099

After shaking down all his "corrupt" relatives, I guess he could easily afford it.

Wait until he finds out it's a fake.

The Reality Of Trump's Jerusalem Pronouncement

According to some, President Trump's pronouncement about Jerusalem was insane:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/apos-apos-insane-apos-white-142214096.html

What exactly did Trump do? He is the first president since Jimmy Carter to tell the truth about what is happening in Palestine.

And what is that truth?

  • There is no peace process.
  • There never was, at least not since the Israelis and their supporters drove Carter out of office and humbled him before the entire world.
  • The Jews have won.
  • There never will be "two states".
  • There will only be Israel, and a whole lot of disappeared Palestinians.
  • All that's left to sort out is the details surrounding HOW and WHEN they will be disappeared ... and how soon the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia will attack Iran.

So ... is it right to revile Trump for telling the truth? No, it's clearly not. Not from my perspective.

And the violence? That's on Israeli PM Netanyahu, and all the liars who have supported the perfidy of Israel right from the start. In fact, he actually may WELCOME the violence ... since it gives him yet another pretext to punish the soon-to-be-disappeared Palestinian people.

The real question we should be asking at this point is "who killed Yitzhak Rabin?" Yes, we think we know who pulled the trigger ... but who put him up to it? That's the person (or persons) who brought us to this point, and you know damn well it wasn't Donald Trump.
