What's The Oldest Business In Your State ???

You can find it on this map:


Would You Buy A Flying Car ???

I would if I had the money. Here's one from Slovakia (of all places):

https://www.aeromobil.com/

Here's another from the US which costs $279,000:

Realistically, these will be toys for the rich. You don't want them wasting their precious time sitting in traffic with peons like you and me, do you?

Opiates Are FAR More Dangerous Than Terrorists

Opiates kill FAR more people than terrorists do. You can read about it here:

Q: Why then are we bombing ISIS, but guarding the poppy fields?

A: It's a win-win strategy - the right gets to make money selling weapons, while the left makes a similar killing by selling dope to our kids.

The only loser is We The People; but wasn't that always the intention?

A Congress Of Cowards

In 1776, the Continental Congress issued their Declaration of Independence, in support of which they pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, and their sacred Honor.

You can read it here - http://www.ushistory.org/DECLARATION/document/

In 2017, with their nation falling down around their ears, the 115th US Congress did the bare minimum to keep the government open ... and little else:

https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-04-28/house-does-bare-minimum-to-keep-u-s-government-open-next-week

We have gone from a revolution fought by brave giants to a Congress of parasites and cowards who care only about their own power and privilege.

And THIS is not the answer we need:

For a bunch of peace loving, tolerance spewing social justice warriors, it sure does appear that the new “progressive” movement in America is rapidly turning to Bolshevik tactics to force their will upon a free and non-violent people.

The latest example of a society on the brink of civil war comes to us from Portland, Oregon, where every year the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association kicks of the city’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade.

Except this year, there will be no parade. Organizers have cancelled the event amid threats of violence from groups referring to themselves as “Anti-Fascist.” According to The Washington Post, the reasoning behind the threats is reportedly outrage over the fact that the county’s Republican Party was given one of the nearly 100 spots in the parade.

There's no new Washington, no new Lincoln, no new FDR; but plenty of new Lenins and Hitlers.

USA is going away. It's replacement will be a political abortion.

Racing To One Trillion

Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are in a race to become the world's first "trillionaire". You can read about it here:

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/04/28/bill-gates-or-jeff-bezos-could-be-the-worlds-first-trillionaire.html

Meanwhile, more than one trillion human beings live in extreme poverty:

  1. Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population - more than 3 billion people - live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty - less than $1.25 a day.
  2. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
  3. 805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat. Food banks are especially important in providing food for people that can’t afford it themselves. Run a food drive outside your local grocery store so people in your community have enough to eat. Sign up for Supermarket Stakeout.
  4. More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.
  5. In 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition.

Bill's "solution"? Give them vaccines to reduce their fertility.

Jeff's "solution"? Build a supply chain to sell products on the moon.

What a pair of clowns.

BRICS Under Siege

The five BRICS countries have been trying to create a world system which is an alternative to the one the USA is forcing upon people. But now they are under siege:

(1) Brazil is encumbered with political scandals and a failing economy.

(2) Russia is threatened militarily by the USA.

(3) India is suffering from a disastrous economic decision to reduce the flow of untaxed cash in her economy.

(4) China is threatened militarily by the USA and by the North Korean mess.

(5) And now South Africa also is suffering from an economic slowdown. You can read about one aspect of it here:

https://qz.com/940619/chinese-traders-changed-south-africa-now-theyre-leaving/

In contrast, their "enemy" (the USA) thrives by printing more money and loaning it at near zero interest rates.

Will we ever see the end of this war? And who will win, who will lose?

Filth Is Fun ???

At the start of “Catastrophe,” Sharon (an Irish schoolteacher played by Sharon Horgan) and Rob (an American ad man played by Rob Delaney) meet in a London bar and proceed to have loads of sex, most of it unprotected. “A terrible thing has happened,” he tells her after learning that their six-night bacchanal has resulted in pregnancy. “Let’s make the best of it.” And with that, one of television’s funniest, filthiest, most realistic takes on the sweet mess of coupledom and parenting was born.

And if our children have become "a terrible thing", what does that say about us?

Trump's Personality Is Identical To Obama And Hillary

Some are trying to prove that President Trump is mentally ill. Here is one of the latest attempts, by someone claiming that Trump has "narcissistic personality disorder":

Many experts use the criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association, to diagnose mental conditions. This manual is also used by insurance companies to reimburse for treatment.

DSM-5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features:

  • Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerating your achievements and talents
  • Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty, or the perfect mate
  • Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
  • Requiring constant admiration
  • Having a sense of entitlement
  • Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
  • Taking advantage of others to get what you want
  • Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Being envious of others and believing others envy you
  • Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner

Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence, it's not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal and value yourself more than you value others.

Source - http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-29/interesting-cut-and-paste-mayo-clinic

Any honest person (and I do mean HONEST) will have to admit that these are traits which also are exhibited by Barack Obama ad-Dajjal and Hillary Clinton.

But if you want to keep lying to yourself and others, then just pretend they are not.

What would that be called? Associative agnosia, or just plain old denial?

The Fallacy Of The CWC

According to this report, we should celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Chemical Weapons Convention:

Since the CWC went into effect, over 95% of all declared chemical weapons have been verifiably eliminated.

http://whowhatwhy.org/2017/04/29/chemical-weapons-convention-treaty-anniversary/

What the report fails to discuss is the fact the CWC did nothing to eliminate undeclared chemical weapons, such as novichok. You can read about this undeclared weapon here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2013/09/why-chemical-weapons-convention-is.html

In reality the current hub-bub over chemical weapons in Syria is BULLSHIT. The real threat is from offshoots of the Soviet Foliant Program, and the potential target of that threat is you and me. If novichok ever falls into the wrong hands, we are screwed.

If and when that happens, keep in mind the US could have demanded that novichok get added to the list of proscribed chemical weapons, but did not.

Russian Economy Immune To US Sanctions

According to this report, the US has lost the ability to hurt Russia with economic sanctions:

https://sputniknews.com/business/201704271053069184-russia-economy-sanctions-un/

This suggests that one of the chief reasons for supporting "globalism" in the first place was its ability to be used to bully other nations into compliance with US demands.

Someday the rest of the world will place sanctions on us, and we can't say they will be undeserved.

The REAL Cause Of US Measles Outbreaks

Take a look at this graph and think about what it means:



You guessed it - the REAL cause of US measles outbreaks is uncontrolled immigration.

Is Israel Stealing Jerusalem ???

A nation of homeless people (the USA) continues to help build more homes for one of the richest nations on the planet (Israel):

The Israeli Housing Ministry today announced plans to build 25,000 homes across metro Jerusalem, and within this announcement were 15,000 new settlement homes within occupied East Jerusalem areas, a massive expansion of settlement in the area.

Israeli officials don’t present expansions in the East Jerusalem settlements as “settlement” expansion, however, as they insist the area, occupied since 1967, is part of the “eternal” capital of Israel, and will never be given back to the Palestinians at any rate.

The latest move sparked a lot of international criticism, with Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat declaring the move an attempt at “deliberate sabotage” of the peace process, and noting that all settlement construction in the occupied territories is illegal under international law.

You can read the rest @
http://news.antiwar.com/2017/04/28/israel-announces-plan-for-15000-more-settlement-homes-in-east-jerusalem/

The REAL peace process is this - Israel claims that which they say G-d promised to Abraham, and the Palestinians somehow "disappear". To believe otherwise is delusional.

To facilitate this "peace process", President Trump is expected to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital during his pending visit. You can read about it here:

http://www.timesofisrael.com/trump-to-recognize-entire-jerusalem-as-israels-capital-during-trip-report/

Let's admit three things, shall we?

(1) What Israel is doing is in fact illegal under international law. We've known that from the beginning.

(2) What Israel is doing goes directly against the Torah. You can find the scriptures which prove that here:

http://www.truetorahjews.org/qanda/source1

(3) What Israel is doing has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, at least not from the Israeli perspective. You can listen to their own words here:

https://youtu.be/F7Cui-E0DOY

So, what's going on? It can only be one of two possible things:

(a) An earthly power grab, financed and backed by earthly power and greed; or

(b) A satanic power grab, motivated and backed by Satan himself.

Or perhaps both.

But in any case, it is NOT what one would expect after reading both the Torah and the New Testament.

So my advice to everyone is - do NOT support this, and do NOT get in its way. If this is what G-d really wants, it will happen ... no matter what we do or don't do. If it's an earthly power grab, any resisters will be crushed. If it's Satan's doing (i.e., part of what G-d will allow Satan to do), any resisters ALSO will be crushed, for it is written:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Revelation 13:7 KJV

Read and heed the Bible, and do NOT take the mark.

Tesla Recruits In Mexico

Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) is recruiting engineers from Mexico to work on robotics and other automated equipment at its California factory, according to LinkedIn postings viewed by Reuters, part of a hiring push to ready the plant for mass production of the upcoming Model 3.

The electric vehicle maker, which prides itself on its "Made in America" credentials, aims to build 500,000 cars a year by 2018 at its plant in Fremont, California, south of San Francisco. That would be a six-fold increase from 2016.

A recruiting poster published on LinkedIn by Tesla's senior technical recruiter, David Johnson, listed 15 types of engineers the company would be seeking at a May 5-8 recruiting event in Monterrey, Mexico.

Quote For The Day

"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces."

Elon Musk Is NOT Humanity's Savior

Far from being humanity's savior, it's more likely Elon Musk is delusional:

Last week, Elon Musk confirmed that his company, NeuraLink, is working on the development of a brain-machine interface (BMI). For the last couple of years, Musk has made no secret of his fears of artificial intelligence advancing to the point where it overtakes its human creators. Musk believes that in order to safeguard the human race against a superintelligent machine apocalypse, we must essentially become them: cyborgs whose minds are internally augmented by advanced computer systems. Along the way, he believes, this transition will spawn countless benefits - and profitable industries - for humans.

You can read the rest @

Profitable industries, definitely ... but mostly for Musk and his ilk.

Countless benefits? It's more likely the following will happen:
  • No jobs for most humans
  • No income for most humans
  • No food for most humans
  • No health care for most humans
... all of which leads to the only real "benefit" - a culling of the human herd, which will relieve the stress we are placing on the planet.

Don't trust the AI / robotics snake oil salesmen. What they are selling amounts to the wholesale extermination of our species.

Is It Really All About THAAD ???

In response to the "threat" from North Korea, the US is putting THAAD missiles in South Korea. You can read about them here:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/russia-us-arms-race-thaad-anti-missile-system-nuclear-weapons-cold-war-terminal-high-altitude-area-a7653416.html

Are we responding to actual threats, or are these just red herrings which are being used to justify US aggression against China and Russia?

I strongly believe that China and Russia, if left alone, would pose absolutely no security threat to the US. I also believe the US will attack anyone, anywhere, anytime merely to preserve the power and privilege of US oligarchs, bankgangsters, corporate CEOs, and their accomplices in the one percent.

The real "threat" posed by China, Russia, and the rest of the BRICS is the possibility of a new world order which is more fair and just than the one being imposed on the world by the US.

Don't Worry About Sergey's Airship

There has been speculation about why Sergey Brin is building a giant airship. You can read about it here:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-25/with-secret-airship-sergey-brin-also-wants-to-fly

Sounds to me like he is building a yacht of sorts. But I wouldn't worry about whatever he's doing.

Why not?

The art of airship flying died with the crash of the Hindenburg. All US airships suffered a similar fate - they also crashed, mostly from weather induced problems. No matter how many sensors and computers he uses to "control" his airship, its overall response never will be fast enough to cope with the rapid changes one can expect in Earth's atmosphere.

Therefore it's quite likely that Sergey's airship eventually will crash, too.

And wouldn't that be a shame.

The Angry Russian Babushka

Here is a video of an angry Russian grandmother (babushka). Although in Russian, it's still entertaining and informative. Here's what she says about the US:

"I watch television [...] and then there's an American: we are like this and you are like that,” she says, grimacing as she imitates a confident American speaking to groveling Russians.

"If I were on the television I would tell [the Americans]: My dear, we've been wiped off the face of the Earth several times! But you have not had a day of war. And you're comparing ... We have so many veterans, so many children of war, so many disabled people ... we need to provide for them, we need to lift ourselves from the ruins [...] You learn to cry like a Russian, before you sit there giggling at us."

You can find the video and some English commentary here:

https://themoscowtimes.com/news/the-russian-babushka-who-said-it-all-about-the-country-of-morons-57827

She reminds me of my Slavic grandmothers.

She makes a good point - Russia has defeated some of the strongest military machines of all time, while the US has faced mainly weak, poorly equipped forces.

Q: Why are there few if any senior citizens anywhere in the US media (other than those portrayed as comedic clowns)?

A: The powers that be don't want to hear anything which is old school, mostly because it goes counter to their garbage and makes too much sense. They prefer to insult our seniors and make them starve in the dark, while the rich enjoy spending the money they stole from the SS Trust Fund (sic).

The New Whore Of Wall Street

His name? Barack Obama ad-Dajjal, of course:

Cantor Fitzgerald LP will pay former President Barack Obama $400,000 to speak at a conference in September, likely the first of many lucrative Wall Street paydays.

Obama doesn’t really need the money: He earned over $14 million for his first three books, and bidding for his next deal (a package with Michelle) has run over $60 million. But he has every right to cash in on his star power and his hard-won expertise.

Climate Change "Science" Vs. 9/11 "Science"

We're being bombarded with messages telling us that "climate change science" must be believed, or else.

And yet nearly the entire US population believes the non-scientific, physically impossible official story of what happened on 9/11. You can read about it here:

Threatening North Korea With Nuclear Subs ???

According to this report, the USS Michigan is in Korean waters:

North Korea conducted a big live-fire exercise on Tuesday to mark the foundation of its military as a U.S. submarine docked in South Korea in a show of force amid growing concern over the North's nuclear and missile programs.

The port call by the USS Michigan came as a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group steamed toward Korean waters and as top envoys for North Korea policy from South Korea, Japan and the United States met in Tokyo.

You can read the rest @

Frankly, this is a dumb PR stunt. Submarines belong underwater, not in port where they are quite vulnerable to attack.

USS Michigan apparently no longer carries ICBMs such as the Trident missile, having been converted into a cruise missile carrying sub:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Michigan_(SSGN-727)

That is not to say that her cruise missiles could not be armed with nuclear warheads.

It's difficult to know exactly why President Trump has called all 100 US Senators to the White House, but if I had to guess I would say he intends to attack the Koreans.

Time to stock up on duct tape, water, and cans of tuna fish.

Rewarding Incompetence ???

Marissa Mayer, the soon to be former YHOO Chief Executive, is set to make at least $186 million as a result of the Internet company’s sale to Verizon Communications.

Are Humans Evolving, Or Going Backward ???

According to this essay, creativity is driving human evolution:

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/04/creative-spark-augustin-fuentes-evolution/

What is "evolution"? It has various definitions, but I would like to focus on this one:

The scientific theory explaining the appearance of new species and varieties through the action of various biological mechanisms (such as natural selection, genetic mutation or drift, and hybridization). Since 1950, developments in molecular biology have had a growing influence on the theory of evolution. In Darwinian evolution, the basic mechanism is genetic mutation, followed by selection of the organisms most likely to survive.

Source - https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/evolution

"Genetic mutation, followed by selection". This is NOT what the National Geographic essay is talking about.

No, those who salute human creativity and its impacts are really talking about the forced division of humanity into two sub-species, the "haves" and the "have-nots". You can find an excellent discussion of that phenomenon here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-haves-and-have-nots.html

What is a species?

A species is often defined as the largest group of organisms in which two individuals can produce fertile offspring, typically by sexual reproduction.


Source - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Species

While the haves and the have-nots theoretically still can produce fertile offspring, they seldom do so. The willful separation of the two groups may soon drive humanity into two species which no longer can interbreed. Then what?

The haves seek to circumvent Darwinian evolution. They live in environments which are isolated from the natural world. So far, the changes which stem from their "creativity" are not passed to future generations by genetic mutation. In fact, it could be argued that it is the machines created by the haves which are evolving, not the haves themselves. And "transhumanism" really won't change that.

The have-nots, on the other hand, are subject to all the cruelties of Darwinian evolution. They eat bad food (if they eat at all), drink bad water, live in crappy housing, receive substandard or no medical care. If any humans are evolving in the Darwinian sense, it is they.

So what will happen on the day the Internet and/or the machines fail the haves? Most of them cannot perform the simple tasks required to survive in the "real" world. Here is proof of that:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2017/04/uk-residents-cannot-perform-simple-tasks.html

Therefore, it's likely the haves will die out and the have-nots will survive. Doesn't that suggest that instead of driving our evolution, creativity is driving us backward?

You were a witness to Hillary's infirmities, and yet you said nothing. Doesn't that make you an accomplice to fraud?

The Haves And The Have-Nots

You’ve probably heard the news that the celebrated post-WW II beating heart of America known as the middle class has gone from “burdened,” to “squeezed” to “dying.”  But you might have heard less about what exactly is emerging in its place.

In a new book, The Vanishing Middle Class: Prejudice and Power in a Dual Economy, Peter Temin, Professor Emeritus of Economics at MIT, draws a portrait of the new reality in a way that is frighteningly, indelibly clear:  America is not one country anymore. It is becoming two, each with vastly different resources, expectations, and fates.

Two roads diverged

In one of these countries live members of what Temin calls the “FTE sector” (named for finance, technology, and electronics, the industries which largely support its growth). These are the 20 percent of Americans who enjoy college educations, have good jobs, and sleep soundly knowing that they have not only enough money to meet life’s challenges, but also social networks to bolster their success. They grow up with parents who read books to them, tutors to help with homework, and plenty of stimulating things to do and places to go. They travel in planes and drive new cars. The citizens of this country see economic growth all around them and exciting possibilities for the future. They make plans, influence policies, and count themselves as lucky to be Americans.

The FTE citizens rarely visit the country where the other 80 percent of Americans live: the low-wage sector. Here, the world of possibility is shrinking, often dramatically. People are burdened with debt and anxious about their insecure jobs if they have a job at all. Many of them are getting sicker and dying younger than they used to. They get around by crumbling public transport and cars they have trouble paying for. Family life is uncertain here; people often don’t partner for the long-term even when they have children. If they go to college, they finance it by going heavily into debt. They are not thinking about the future; they are focused on surviving the present. The world in which they reside is very different from the one they were taught to believe in. While members of the first country act, these people are acted upon.

The two sectors, notes Temin, have entirely distinct financial systems, residential situations, and educational opportunities. Quite different things happen when they get sick, or when they interact with the law. They move independently of each other. Only one path exists by which the citizens of the low-wage country can enter the affluent one, and that path is fraught with obstacles. Most have no way out.

You can read the rest @
https://www.ineteconomics.org/perspectives/blog/america-is-regressing-into-a-developing-nation-for-most-people

The "haves" sector will continue to shrink, while the "have-nots" sector will continue to grow.

As I suggested in my previous post, our robot overlords and their human masters clearly have no intention of helping the "have-nots", who are becoming nothing more than useless eaters. But what happens when the "have-nots" finally rebel out of desperation?

That's when the "haves" roll out the Terminators.

If you believe otherwise, you are not thinking clearly.

Our Robot Overlords

Jack Ma must have been smokin' some dope:

Alibaba founder and chairman Jack Ma, the man Fortune Magazine just named one of the world's great leaders, predicts that technology will make many CEOs irrelevant in the not-too-distant future.

"In 30 years, a robot will likely be on the cover of Time Magazine as the best CEO," Ma said in a speech over the weekend at an entrepreneurship conference in central China. And he warned of dark times ahead for people who are unprepared for the upheaval technology is set to bring.

"In the next three decades, the world will experience far more pain than happiness," the billionaire said, adding that education systems must raise children to be more creative and curious or they will be ill-prepared for the future.

Robots are quicker and more rational than humans, Ma said, and they don't get bogged down in emotions -- like getting angry at competitors.

But he expressed optimism that robots will make life better for humans in the long run.

Yes, there will be pain - LOTS of pain. And once robots take over all our jobs, what will be the source of our livelihood? Will Jack and his ilk share "their" wealth?

Assuming corporations decide to feed, clothe, and house all of us useless eaters (an assumption I would not bet any serious money on), you can be certain that it will come with several conditions, including absolute obedience to our robot overlords and their human masters.

By the way, Adolf Hitler once was named one of the world's great leaders, too. And you know how THAT turned out. The AI/robot holocaust will be even worse.

Trump's Worst Request Yet

President Trump wants to see astronauts on Mars during his FIRST term:

Although I'm certain we'll get there eventually, it ain't gonna happen that soon.

Sorry, Donald.

Is The Wall Stupid ???

Here's the latest about another Obama-like fake populist rising in California:

Sen. Kamala Harris of California, a Democratic star showing up on lists of potential 2020 presidential candidates, was embraced with a resounding ovation as she condemned the Trump administration at her first town hall meeting on Friday.

Harris pledged to do whatever she could to help block the budget if it includes funding for President Trump’s proposed wall on the southern border.

”It’s just a stupid use of money,” she told the cheering crowd.

Sure, let's shut down the government in an attempt to open our borders.

If you're in favor of the globalist plans to destroy our borders (and our nation along with them), then vote for Senator Harris in 2020.

Me ... I'd vote for Marine Le Pen if she were running here.

The Hypocrisy Of Russia-Gate

Note well that EU leaders now are trying to interfere in France's election:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/after-french-vote-european-leaders-come-out-against-le-pen-but-what-if-she-wins/2017/04/24/47848a0e-251f-11e7-928e-3624539060e8_story.html

And as in the case of the US election, the issue seems to be animosity toward the populist candidate.

So why isn't The Washington Post whining about INTERFERENCE the same way the US MSM are WHINING about fake claims of Russian "interference" in our election?

This is all about the deep state getting their way to preserve the power and wealth of oligarchs, bankgansters, and corporate CEOs.

Misdirected Naval Resources ???

Apparently ships are still being threatened by Somali pirates. You can read about it here:

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/dramatic-footage-of-firefight-on-the-high-seas-u-s-security-contractors-open-fire-on-somali-pirates_04222017

Q: Why are US naval resources being used for aggressive purposes (e.g., bombing Syria and threatening North Korea) but not for defending US commerce on the high seas?

A: Because the US military is being used to achieve global governance for the benefit of Western banks and corporations. We The People get to pay for it, while the banks and corporations hoard their cash, much of it offshore.

It's "war is a racket" all over again:

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives."

Should We Break Up The Fed ???

Donald Trump and the GOP need an easy, highly visible legislative victory.  Breaking up the Fed meets this criteria.

In the aftermath of the Great Financial Crisis, policymakers rushed out the Dodd-Frank Act. This Act increased the Fed’s responsibilities. However, policymakers did this without examining the Fed’s performance in the run-up to the financial crisis.

Had they done so, they would have seen the Fed failed as a bank supervisor and regulator. This failure alone mandates breaking up the Fed. After all, why should the Fed be given a second chance given how much its failure hurt the global real economy and taxpayers?

Furthermore, this failure strongly suggests policymakers shouldn’t have rewarded the Fed with additional responsibilities. After all, there is no reason to believe the Fed’s failure as a bank supervisor and regulator won’t be repeated with any new responsibilities. To the extent these new responsibilities exist in the Dodd-Frank Act, they too should be stripped away.

What the Fed should be left with is responsibility for monetary policy and the payment system.

Although I agree with this in principle, the timing could not be worse.

This would have worked well under the oversight of someone like Dr. Ron Paul. The current bozos in Congress and the Treasury CANNOT be trusted with this kind of overhaul.

UK Residents Cannot Perform Simple Tasks

Are you handy enough that if a lightbulb went out in your home you’d be able to change it? Believe it or not, one in five people aren’t so skilled. In fact, a new survey of people in the United Kingdom finds not only do about 20 percent of people not know how to change a bulb - the same number aren’t sure how to boil an egg, either.

The British insurance company Aviva recently released their annual Home Report which detailed, among numerous findings about how people do work around the house, relatively common tasks that people encounter. The company surveyed 2004 people across the UK in February and March about their habits and roles at home.

In addition to just one in five not being able to change a lightbulb or boil an egg, the survey found that nearly a third of the participants couldn’t cook any meal on the fly. And if someone were to spill a portion of their meal on their clothes or on the floor, only 59 percent would know how to get rid of the resulting stain.

Only 37 percent could change a flat tire.

The findings were even surprising to the folks behind the study.

And that brings up the question - "why do they even have an educational system?"

I would wager that a survey of US residents would yield similar results.

When Will Afghanistan Have Its Tet Offensive ???

One of the deadliest attacks of the entire Afghanistan "war" occurred a few days ago. You can read about it here:

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/04/22/taliban-infiltrates-base-kills-140-soldiers/

Q: How many more lives will be lost, how many more bodies crippled, how much more money wasted before we admit this whole thing is a GIANT mistake?

A: There is no answer to that question, except what is implied by this statement frequently attributed to Albert Einstein:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

If we were sane, we would have stopped this crap a long time ago.

Is This Why O'Reilly Was Fired ???

Here is a different take on the O'Reilly dismissal by Paul Smalera:

For all of Bill O’Reilly’s problems at Fox News, the one that has garnered the least attention is probably the one most responsible for his dismissal: His audience is dying.

According to CNN, the average age of viewers of The O’Reilly Factor was 72. The average life expectancy for males in the US is 78, meaning the average O’Reilly viewer will die off about halfway through US president Donald Trump’s second term.

Of course, that average viewer doesn’t really exist, and Trump hasn’t been re-elected yet, but the point holds: Fox News, which has graced America and cable television with its presence since 1996, is battling an extinction problem.

I have no idea what is really going on here, but I find it strange that all the following are happening at the same time:

  • Trump under siege
  • O'Reilly fired
  • Alex Jones threatened with losing custody of his children
  • Ann Coulter temporarily (?) banned at UC Berkley
  • Climate change skeptics demonized
  • Nationalism/patriotism under constant attack

My conclusion? In the US, there is "right thinking" and "wrong thinking". Wrong thinking is punished, and everything on my list falls into that category.

Exercise "free speech", and you will be attacked and/or fired.

Did Russia Shoot Down Our Missiles ???

In an exclusive video interview with RiskHedge, a long-time geopolitical expert says there is an alternate story making the rounds about the United States’ April 7 missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat Airbase in response to the Syrian regime’s alleged use of sarin gas on its own people.

“Not all missiles made their target,” says Dr. Theodore Karasik, a senior advisor to Gulf State Analytics. “There were supposed to be 60. One malfunctioned on one of the ships. 36 made target, the remainder did not. And, there’s a question of where did they go?”

Dr. Karasik, a former senior political scientist in the International Policy and Security Group at RAND Corporation, spent the last decade in the Middle East and retains an extensive network in the region.

“The missing [missiles] were either brought down by S-300 battery or were taken over by Russian electronic jamming and were plunged into the sea,” explains Dr. Karasik. “Now, this alternative theory means that the US and Russia have already clashed if you will — technically — with the use of the TLAMs (Tomahawk missiles) and then being intercepted or taken over by Russian control.”

If true, this means the US and Russia have had a direct military confrontation for the first time in decades.

And the Russians are claiming they can jam our electronics and completely shut down our navy. You can read about it here:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3361338/electronic-bomb-russia-us-navy/

I would not be surprised if both claims were true.

What would be REALLY scary is if the Russians could turn our missiles around and get them to hit our own ships. THAT would suck!
