2016: Where to Hide? Plus: Hypocrisy in the Headlines

imageWhere to hide?  I mean besides moving to Ecuador, as some of our reader have, that’s the topic this weekend as we roll out our look ahead at 2016 and explore some of the (amazingly-poor) economic choices before us.

To underline how bad things are, let’s take a look at where the stock market is likely to close today:  Looks to me like the S&P 500 will close right around where it is:  2,063.36.

Where was it at this time a year go?  2,058.90.

That means the total return on stocks is 2-10th’s of one lousy percent.  If you want to call that an Economic Recovery, pass the pipe.

Needless to say, the me-too-media (MTM) will not be screaming this from the rooftops because it blows the “narrative.”  (Narrative is another word for fairytale only this one if far more Grimm.)

And let’s not forget the President Doolittle has consumed the same Kool-Aid as Eurabia (formerly the EU):  The Washington (rotten) core somehow believes that immigration is the answer to economic growth.

It’s not.

Although, in terms of providing a short-term economic stimulus, it can work.

We presented some convincing evidence (complete with charts from Eurostat) in  Peoplenomics yesterday that make the case.

But here is the “thinking” that has gone viral among the bleeding hearts in the District of Corruption:

Since we don’t have organic growth of the economy, if we import 5% more people, that will result in 5% growth.  That’s because everyone will need a place to live, there will be auto sales, new grocery stores, and even more people to pay into the Social Security Ponzi scheme that has been beggared, along with the Highway Trust funds…”

HS&J – hype,. shuck, and jive.

As a result, we looked at the European “import economic expansion model” to see how that’s working out.  Instead of long-lasting economic stimulus, what Eurabia as done is import an occupying army.  But before losing Germany, they will buy a bunch of things.  And that causes “economic growth” – so goes the storyline.

Way to go, Angela Merkel.  Who would have thought the Great American Democracy would follow the megalomaniacs of the Ure-a-pee’in Union down this dead-end (and the bridge is out) road?

2016 (Q3/Q4) should see the implosion of Germany and then the banko E.U. begin in earnest.  We here in America will benefit for a short time (6-months?) but then the contagion will spread here in 2017.

And that’s regardless of what happens in our presidential contest – where we still expect the Obama-wing of the GOP to scuttle real change (Trump) and broker the convention and run with the put-up wet dishrag candidate (Busk the X).

Elaine and I sit around almost daily, shocked in the horror of what’s to come…and wondering why the rest of America slumbers on.

Or, should I say “¿Por qué la gente estúpida de Estados Unidos todavía durmiendo?”

The answer is obvious: “???????, ?? ??? ????? ????? ?? ???? ??????: ?????? ????????.”

I’d like to thank every self-aggrandizing elected official who passed laws without reading them and thinking them through, for making the pending second Depression of 2017-2018 possible and now nearly inevitable.

Thanks for blowing high culture..

Obama Wants Your Job!

Let’s get down to hypocrisy now, shall we?

No, I haven;’t been wrong warning of how the Obamanistas are looking to “import a solution to their economic squandering (helped by Bush II) – of America’s economic future.

Latest proof is a set of Obamanista “rules” which will vastly increase the number of foreign nationals coming to America – holding college degrees.  Truly “making up the law” here.

So, here’s the thing:  If you’re a liberal young college grad and cast a “guilt vote” for the cabal in Washington, it’s time to GTFU because this is your pay-back.  You’ll love this unemployed version of “Change!” I bet…

Even more fun?  All made possible by the Paul Ryan/ Obama-wing of the GOP laying down on the budget – another deal point I have warned you of in past reports.

Truths is:  The Ryanesque wing (which holds us “tea-baggers” in contempt) is really nothing more than an extension of the corporate-democrat party which continues the coup d’é·tat.

Where the ‘ef was Ryan and other misnamed GOP “leaders” back in  October when this headline crossed?

Up to 34 MILLION blank ‘green cards’ and work permits to be ordered ahead of Obama illegal immigrant ‘amnesty’ 

Care to guess where we are now?

Obama and his leftist coup know that a country without borders is not a country and that they can swill the donkeys with intellectual dead-ends like “importing economic growth” and they’ll buy it.  Or, be branded anti-progress racists…

Which is why when the Buzzfeed story “All you Americans are fired” story came out a month ago, the somnambulistic GOP swindles did nothing but sit and wait for their next free lunch.

Even when a story crosses like “Agents nab Pakistanis with terrorist connections crossing U.S. border” I bet’cha a phone call from DC will spring ‘em within a month…

The problem is not ICE or CBP – fish rot from the head.

Where is Black Lives Matter?

OK, everyone know charges have now been filed against Bill Cosby.

But here is the question no one in the MSM is asking:  Where is Black Livers Matter in all this?

I must have missed the demonstrations against Cosby.  I must have missed Al Sharpton’s dramatic apology and call for unity against all rights violations, left-right, Black-White-Latino……no…wait… none of that seems to have happened…

Perhaps it’s because BLM seems to be more interested in what divides, not that which can unite us in building a better world. 

I believe “all souls weigh the same” and that if BLM had higher integrity, they would be out demonstrating against you-know-who for setting back civil rights by a decade, single-handedly.

Damn shame Cosby’s not a white cop because if he were, I bet BLM would already be screaming their heads off.

Check this:  ALL LIVES MATTER.

Cosby is entitled to a fair trial, of course.  But in  other cases, specifically those involving cops behaving badly, there was no restraint on demonstrations before-the-fact of trial.  Nor should there have been.  Bad behavior (caught on video) matters.

So why the pass for Cosby?  Horrible breach of faith with the community – if true.

Gas Leak Cover-Up

Need some more hypocrisy in the headlines?

The mainstream media, meanwhile, continues to ignore the Porters Ranch gas leak disaster.  It should be making headlines worldwide since it is larger than all the pollution of many countries combined.

Yet once again, we put on the UrbanSurvival Goggles of Truth and behold another reality:

If global warming is a concern of the young people, why aren’t we boycotting California…and could someone get Bill Nye the Science Guy to calculate whether there would be less environmental damage if we could just light this sucker off and let it burn instead of free-stream?

Wrapped with some copper tubing to run a generator, this could solve a lot of power problem with a huge low-pressure boiler.

I mean come on people, this is a perfect opportunity for “When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade…”  We got us a mega lemon going…

It would also be a fine freaking time to rediscover what makes the Melting Pot Great:  Invention!

Travel Note

More hypocrisy:  TSA will likely stop accepting drivers licenses from nine states because they don’t comply with new federal guidelines.

All this as people are flooding in from the Middle East.  With no paperwork.

Now help me get this:  People can come here (on airplanes) from the Middle East without a defined hard-core vetting process.  YET states issuing drivers licenses aren’t trusted?

All I want for New Years is an ounce of B-52 at this point. Mass hypocrisy must follow group hypnosis.  If we hear something often enough it must be true.

2015’s Last Comment on Power and Control

On the passing of Ian Murdock:  From our News Analyst fellow in Winnipeg: for our Directorate 153  files…

Dear Director,

It would appear that the creator of Debian Linux has passed away far too young. Someone posted a screenshot link to his now deleted Twitter account as follows: https://archive.is/7P6vU

Regards,

As a Wikipedia note informs us:

The details surrounding his death on 28 December 2015[2] are still unknown, but his last tweets declared an intention to commit suicide, and described violent encounters with police.[12][13][14] He died in San Francisco, where he had been living.[15]

Software Lives Matter, too.

See you on the other side…thank you for being a reader.

That makes two of us who have common sense.

  1. Wow, if Bill Cosby were a white cop BLM would have…smh. Bill Cosby is not a police officer PERIOD. He’s not an agent of the state, AT ALL. Logical consistency please.

  2. This really is for the coping section. We had a CME hit over the last few days. It’s been awhile since the last one. Also A coronal hole is in the works. Plus the Moon started waning. I imagine the energy in play was interesting. With all the care you take with power and electricity I find those series of events amazing. The Dog doubly so. If we ever have a beer remind me to tell you the story when a ghost touched me the same way. I was armed at the time.
    PS I am ‘rated” at 246 volts.

  3. Methane is of no real concern in AGW as its radiation band is swamped by water vapor’s and its persistence in the atmosphere is too short to be of concern.

  4. Now… seriously.. Happy New Year George.. my yours and your families be blessed with peace, prosperity and happiness…

  5. Happy new years George…

    http://www.cnbc.com/2015/12/29/for-the-wealthiest-a-private-tax-system-that-saves-them-billions.html

    They must have read the new spending bill that congress passed..
    Not to mention every single candidate is saying.. lets go to war.. march our men into battle ….except of course the only two level headed ones on the ballots bernie sanders and rand paul.I think those two are the only ones that really know that fighting for peace is like screwing for chastity…while the majority of them say the two billion a day isn’t anything for our middle class to handle.. haven’t they realized that we are printing up money out of thin air…. phew.. I wonder if its time to start marching in circles pulling my hair out saying we are screwed .. oh my we are screwed..
    I also wonder on the refugees and immigrants.that don’t have to pay any taxes for what five years.in the middle eighties.. I worked with an immigrant that came here.. jobs were tight.. I had to work six jobs to get by.. at the end of the year he got back every penny he and the company paid in and got all the benefits as well giving him a refund check more than I grossed working day and night…
    another thing hasn’t anyone ever read in either the old testament or the quran how they say to conquer an opponent.these people live the quran as it is written word for word… or the story of the kingdom of troy..
    not counting all of our jobs has been exported years ago..
    oh I should start circling the room again.. LOL LOL

  6. Happy New Year to you and Elaine as well, George! Thanks so much for sharing your insight, knowledge and foresight with us.

    As as aside, can you work on an update to the “Living on $10,000 a year or less”? With my new health insurance premiums in 2016 being $7000 a year without using a dime of coverage, since I have to meet a $3000 deductible first before co-pays kick in, so that only leaves $3000 to live on for all other expenses if I were to try to accomplish this goal.

    Okay, I’m being fascicious, but can you tell this is making me sick and frustrated and about ready to go Galt?

  7. Thanks for all you do. I have missed Peoplenomics in 2015, but with a limited fixed income, disappointing Amazon sales of my novels, and a rising cost of living, I had to make some hard choices. Since I am not in the market, not renewing my Peoplenomics subscription was one of them. I am truly sorry I can’t support you by subscribing, but I did buy your novel on day 1, and loved it.

    Regards,

  8. The problem with being a “do it yourselfer is” ; there is no one else to blame when something goes kerflui. Rats! and rats again! You learn a lot about yourself, though. Now, where did I leave that screwdriver……

  9. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication – much much appreciated! And here’s to an amazing and awesome 2016. Will keep reading your work until the net goes dark.

  10. Re: Travel note – George, Two years ago, I tried my passport card at TSA, and the response was “don’t you have a drivers license?”. I don’t see California on the list of denied drivers licenses, and CA will issue DL to resident alien of all stripes which supposedly makes driving safer as they know the state regs. Go figure; I write it off to poor training, but suspect it is worse.

  11. Happy New Years to Ures! If it’s any consolation, that VOC moon gave me a failed alternator and consequently dead battery in my “beater”and a weakened (as in not able to reset) GFI in kitchen thereby taking out 3 receptacles and my gas cook top ignitor. The good news is that I was NOT goosed by the neighbor’s dog.

  12. Hi George/Elaine, and Happy New Year!

    I’m a bit stressed by this “moon(void);” thing – since the entire USA seems to have bizarre events, like California passing gas, crippling snow which covered all my backup firewood, your electrical events, flooding in the heartland, etc.

    I always thought you were an Aquarium, but having checked the dates I find that you really are a fish. Perhaps that’s why you can Dreamover! ????!

  13. George, just want to point out that Ecuador is not the only place to expatriate. There are more than a million expats/snowbirds south of the USA border. If you expatriate in a hurry, expect that the first place you land may not be the best fit. But you gotta make that first trip and start picking the brains of the local expats. But trust me, no matter where you land, it will not suck as badly as the USA.

    We had a dearth of visitors/renters during the summer months, actually had to cut the rental rates. Suspect the grandparents were sitting the USA grandkids during the summer to save daycare money. But there are lots of visitors since September.

    And that Europe situation? Expect Germany to break away and enter the Russia/China economic circle with their own currency. Have you noticed that Russia and China have no Muslim problem? The leader of one of the large Muslim groups in Russia just publicly announced their allegiance and gratitude to Russia, their “motherland.” Trust me, the Muslim world noticed.

  14. In stepping back and seeing the obvious manipulations of world events, it has occurred to me that there is seemingly no intelligent or rational explanation for the apparent “end game”. Specifically, what could be gained by Human elites in a world of chaos, with uncontrolled anger, death and constant suffering? Is it possible that we are being driven into this frenzied state of destruction by demonic influences on their Human hosts ? After all, Demons thrive and expand on our Human suffering, anger and cruelty. If this is the case, then we can expect “real hell on earth” in the coming years. Not a pleasant thought to be sure, but knowing this, it would also mean that we have the Angelic or heavenly dimensions also available to us.
    Just some thoughts for the New Year. May Ure’s be in consciousness and love.

  15. Happy New Year George, appreciate your daily effort to keep us a little ahead of the game ….

  16. Happy New Year George, from Phil and Steff in Austin.

  17. Happy New Year to us all! May the present movie of our lives in America be remade, with a new script, new directors, new cast, and unpolluted scenery.

  18. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND URES!!

    and btw, murckle will not ‘lose’ germany, other than its a planned ptb ‘takedown’. didya forget the back on the dollar bill? NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM? well, the one/new world ordo has been planned for some time now and its just now begging to take hold. one world govt. to be runn by the Poope. and thats the scoop! no borders globally and all run by one person. then again, we have had borders and different ppl running tracts of this globe for quite some time now, and that method doest seem to be working…so what the hell, it cant be much worse than it is now with the ‘old world disorder’ running things?

  19. Why would anybody ‘back’ Crosby? Even if you do belong to an identifiable group of people – you don’t get a ‘pass’ for being a sexual pervert – that’s what made the situation with ‘priests’ of that ilk and some authorities in the Catholic Church so disgusting.

    Sex crimes are different in that both the attacker and the victim are affected emotionally – it may not be possible to ‘cure’ an attacker and their victim(s) will need extensive support to recover.

    Crosby needs to be remembered in the same light as Fatty Arbuckle and any of his shows rarely watched again – the ‘humor’ is gone.

      • OK…a whole context

        That’s because everyone will need a place to live, there will be auto sales, new grocery stores, and even more people to pay into the Social Security Ponzi scheme that has been beggared, along with the Highway Trust funds…”

        HS&J – hype,. shuck, and jive.

        As a result, we looked at the European “import economic expansion model” to see how that’s working out. ”

        In other works, the disappearance of these “trust funds” has been a subject of congressional HS&J – Meaning we get hype, shuck, and Jive when people raise serious questions about where the money went. Interagency lending at low rates, lol.

        Hype is media spin, shuck is mindless BS talking heads, and jive is eubonic fror bullshitting.
        as in Don’t jive me mo fo. In other words, the media, talking mindless bullshit and passing it off and real answers. Which it ain’t. But depends on the IQ of the listeners.

        See a few 1970’d Laugh-In episodes for other uses….or some mid 70’s BET Network style movies (down scale from Shaft) and listen for the phrase don’t shuck me you jive sukkah

        ‘cept the downscale audience is now all of ‘Merica….o’ course. We is all been converted and de old boss is de new boss and the circle is unbroken.

        Hope this helps?

  20. George,
    Thank you for a great year of reading. Happy New Year to you and yours.
