Can Consumers Save Trump?

We’ll have a “plain speaking” report this morning because there is so much else going on at the ranch – more on the subscriber side (Peoplenomics.com) tomorrow along with the new market charting thoughts I mentioned Wednesday.

The main things to be looking at today include the Retail Sales figures, the ongoing circus in Washington, and the early arrival of winter and what that means to the “climate monetizers.”

Retail Sales

Advance estimates of U.S. retail and food services sales for October 2019, adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, were $526.5 billion, an increase of 0.3 percent (±0.4 percent)* from the previous month, and 3.1 percent (±0.7 percent) above October 2018.  Total sales for the August 2019 through October 2019 period were up 3.8 percent (±0.5 percent) from the same period a year ago.  The August 2019 to September 2019 percent change was unrevised from down 0.3 percent (±0.2 percent). “

Picture it as not too exciting:

Dow was up 80-something after the number…

By the way, the Fed Repo’s today are here. $68-billlion (so far for the day at press time).

Meanwhile, in the Center Ring

The alt. reality – better described at the democrat brain bubble – continues in “foul swing” today with Adam Schiff, who still hasn’t charged Trump with an impeachable offense (others than side-stepping the usual suspects (deep-staters at State) and offending dems by following up on the Biden corruption investigation in Ukraine).  We look for another nothing-burger before the end of the day.  But hey!  Pseudo-drama is what we live for, right?

The BIG story is that this is likely the best chance you’ll ever have to see which media has been coopted by the “new power tools of thought control.”

The Digital Dictators

What I’m talking about is the lack of mainstream discussion about the (alleged) whistleblower (Eric Ciaramella) who is (supposedly) an Obama hold-over, who was (allegedly) coached by shifty Schiff’s crew before filing his complaint and which socialist online uprising media is now lording over the mainstream.  The MSM has sold out.

It’s a money game and I’ll show you how it works because this is a semi-sweet intellectual win for Ure’s truly.

Let’s begin with an oddity:  There’s a dandy opinion piece in Politico.  Titled “The Press Should Name the Whistleblower
The New York Times will only partially unmask him. The rest of the news media should finish the job.”  It’s a damn good piece and demands a read.

But here’s where it gets interesting:  While a senior writer for Politico sees through the bullshit, it’s also clear why Eric (Obama holdover) Ciaramella’s name isn’t mentioned.

Social Media outlets are burying anyone who dares to stand up to the lefty-wing pricks who have seized social media and turned it into a communist-leaning thought control tool to rival Pravda back in the day.

The bitter-sweet of this, personally?

Years back on the Peoplenomics side, I forecast how the crooked business model of “social media” would work out.  Infant social media made an interesting pitch to American business leaders:  “Bring your audience to Facebook (as one example) and they will grow your media presence by talking up your brand to a huge audience.”  Well, something was left out.

At first, though it was all fine and well, as long as it was free.

Thing is, shortly after going public, suddenly the FB (and others with similar business models) decided they would rent–back  to the original audience owners, access to their own people!

Scam Alert!  

While it’s legal, anyone dumb enough to follow social media should be removed from a responsible management position because one of the dictates of business is “There’s no FREE LUNCH.”

Social media now – not only charges people for access to an audience they brought to social – but they are also – by banning any mention of Eric Ciaramella’s name – going one better:  Telling people what to think.

Maybe it’s two better, since they have silenced the (social media dependent idiocracies) which means the SS (*search and social) have become participanting co-dictators in the left-wing “soft coup” to take down America.  Which was outed by one of the democrat lawyers a couple of years back.

What’s appalling (but useful) is to notice that while saying the media should out Ciaramella’s name, the Politico story doesn’t get to naming him….which means they don’t want to get banned by social, either, near as we can figure it.  They call it crooked…which is a start.

Friends, this is an incomprehensible attack on Liberty to an old man (like me) in his 70’s.  How can our country be so misguided and “captains of industry” be so stupid as to bring their audiences to social media 10-years ago and not anticipate what these pricks would do to them?


Peoplenomics Subscriber note:  It’s on page 2 of the Master Index as “December 18, 2013:  As we look ahead, we’re troubled by the increasing number of “time-circular” business plans emergent in social media.

That’s when I made a costly personal decision not to get into bed with the succubus’s of social and no doubt it’s part of why UrbanSurvival and Peoplenomics are not wildly more popular.  Common Sense is not in vogue…especially when we throw cold water on mass hysteria.  The children are running their own asylum and grown-up aren’t welcome.  The Politico article lays out the “bait and switch” which cane on slowly as it laid the groundwork for the mess we’re in today.


All of which is appalling and yet, deliciously predictable.  Popcorn and ViseGrips are the order of the day.

Climate, Weather, or Scam?

Been a cold week, hasn’t it?  Unusually so, in fact.  Schools starting late in Texas (Austin among others) as mid-week saw reports like “A brief overview of the winter weather hitting the U.S..

Now, the weather is about to warm up, but like the social mobsters telling people what to think about Trump (and burying things like the crooked Biden hold-up of aid (OK under Obama), they’re doing the same thing on climate change.

The reality is that yes, climate is changing.  But, the flooding 50-years ago in Venice wasn’t “climate change” and the early arrival of winter this year isn’t either.  The facts are global warming coincided with the Modern Maximum and now that we’re going into an extending Modern Minimum, its going to get colder before it gets hotter again.

My point is that the Digital Dictators at the top of social media empires have become the unwitting fools of global corporate-socialism and are telling you what to think on this climate, too.  Again, if you happen to be in media that dares question the Digital Mob Rule’s paradigm, your site will lose audience not on merit, but on blacklisting by the 30-something goon squads who make-up digital policy based on arrogance and pretension.

Hell of it is?

It’s working.

What’s Worth Knowing

Other than data points, most people miss the bigger chess game in play.  Where patriotic, independent-minded Americans are put in “social check.”

Once you awaken to the phone-jacking of freedom, there’s not much “real news” to report.  A few stories?  Sure.  Like…

First, let’s rewrite history, shall we?  Prince Andrew speaks to BBC about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.  Dead men tell no tales, eh?

Like the old Spy vs. Spy  cartoons?  Here’s the IRL version: Russia Conducts Spy Exchange With Norway, Lithuania..

Trade warfare is worth following.  Because in our models, it will turn into food warfare.  So don’t miss  Fortune‘s “The Trade War Cost U.S. Farmers Their China Market. A Deal Might Not Bring It Back.”

Well, much more to cover – that’ll be on Peoplenomics tomorrow.  See you Monday.

Write when you get rich,

    LOL.. I had someone tell me they read something in the pravda… then showed me an article.. ( the story they showed me was never in the pravda..) the pravda reads just like our local small town newspaper.. the same concerns the same type of things happening in any community.. LOL LOL LOL.. the nice thing about the pravda is they keep a five year history of all issues so you can catch up on the news there..

  2. Indeed, George! Social media is the corporate tool that nefarious forces are using to enforce social conformity. I think back to Marshall McLuhan’s “the medium is the message,” particularly relating to the 1975 Film “Rollerball,” which predicted the role of corporations in propagandizing the violent futility of individualism. In order for common folk today to gain acceptance on social media, and to remain engaged on social media, they must increasingly conform. Social media acceptance requires enduring what amounts to a continuous mental enema. We are only better when ‘together’ we all play by the rules – not the rules of a nation’s constitution and the laws which spring forth from such democratic foundations, but rules fabricated by affluent trans-nationalists intent upon steering humanity toward goals which benefit a like-minded syndicate. Their control is insidious and hypnotic. It is also a threat to individuality and creativity.

    • I will not “out” who “warhammer” is. But it’s important you listen when this patriot speaks. It’s fair to say he is a brother of the oak leaf cluster who rode the skies during much of the cold war inside one of those long-range deterrence machines. He is now engaged in a most meaningful way defending us (America) from online digital warriors. His position enables him to see clearly what needs to be done in his “digital defensive” role.
      We are cut of similar cloth in that my 2012 book Broken Web dealt with the weaponization of the web which I see as someone with a minor interest in a cyber-insurance outfit.
      We can be marginalized – either one of us – for such a daring view of seditious media manipulations.
      But we ain’t wrong.
      We’re both willing to stand up to digital tyranny.
      The question is, are you?

      • I think W/H is right on. It evident he knows his stuff..
        Unfortunately changes should have been made long ago. I think we are way to late.
        The new privacy release forms prove that.
        We are out manned and out gunned.

        I think we just have to go for the ride now.. we did it to ourselves to..

      • “They’re called Sheepdogs.”

        Nope . I don’t believe that Jim..
        They are all concerned citizens.. even our Congress when new people get voted in go in with the right ideals..they like us get lulled into turning.. the gifts and money trips.. then slap a dozen thousand page Bill’s in front of them written so that it would take a team of lawyers to decypher. All while working 28 days a year.
        We of course love to hear the eloquent speeches and want to believe that our local boys h azz ve our best interests at heart..its as always someone else’s kid being the bully..
        They drag up some dead horse issues like abortion or securing the borders..and use that as their platform dragging all of us along the yellow brick road..
        They dont read or write any legislation so the sales pitch paragraph looks good..we buy it they buy it. We needed to star voting them out years ago.. we wont even though the vast majority of the population think their work ethis and job skills suck. They still have a 97% chance at reelection. shoot they even voted in a bill where they can be kicked out and sent home lol
        With the exportation of jobs and the dumbing down of the children.. people dont have time to sit down and discuss the news.. they believe what MSM is telling them..if someone posts an idea against msm agenda on fb..they go into fb jail until they conform.
        Read adolphs second book.. it’s all covered..

    • Warhammer,
      You all are acting like this Social Media corporate propagandizing is brand new. It’s not even close…The like minded syndicate model dates back to the birth of the town cryer…then daily newspapers, radio, and TV. All at some form used to enforce social conformity. Even benignly, old rag columns like Dear Abby, Ms Manners, all Op-Ed sections told us how to act and vote…Fashion magazines told us what to buy and wear…Mens’ magazines like Esquire Told us what to cocktail to drink and music to listen to. The list goes on. Many of the aforementioned that are still in business are doing the same today.

      Turn back the clock 30+ years ago to the zenith of the TV era and even then as so eloquently said by the character Howard Beale in his…”I Am Mad As Hell And I Am Not Going To Take It Anymore “ speech in one the greatest movies of our time, Broadcast News, and you will see the more things Change the more they stay the same. Here is the link to the incredibly relevant scene to this movie…

      https://youtu.be/q_qgVn-Op7Q

      Then there is social Media…a slicker version of the old guard media platforms. In my world, Social Media does More good than the minuscule negatives you bring out. The benefits outweigh the risks. But you can say that about any product, service, device, food, drink, activity, modes of travel etc. My Social Media paid ads has made my business thrive tenfold and is much more cost and target efficient than the old days of print, TV and Radio…

      From a personal point of view I still wholly embrace it. It has connected me to people I would have other wise been too busy to converse with…it keeps my parents happy to see pictures on regular basis 2000 miles away.

      I DO NOT get my news from Social Media…There are filters for that by the way. I get my news from News aggregators on the news brands I prefer from both the left and right to provide balanced info acquisition.

      And finally, the jobs social media creates are collectively in the hundreds of thousands. There are over 1400 social media related companies in the Bay Area alone…all spins offs and support for locally based Facebook, Twitter, divisions of Google etc.

      I could talk for days about this topic. Big picture folks…think Big picture… and the world is not nearly as grim as you think It is..

      • ” . . . and the world is not nearly as grim as you think it is . .” but it is far, far grimmer than it has been since the rise of Fascism and Communism around 100 years ago. I did not say social media caused the messing with our minds. That’s been an age old tactic of those consumed with the dark side and craving power and control over those around them. Social media makes it easier, allowing someone in the U.K. to humiliate and subjugate someone in Australia in mere microseconds, with like-minded minions always eager to pile on. Social media is increasingly a tool of the sociopath, one always eager only to reap large profits from psychologically herding ‘we the sheeple” to do their bidding. Sign off of Twitter and Facebook. Use email discriminately. Free your mind.

      • In the old days people had love of country & a work ethic.Big difference today. I am surprised you don’t understand this.You seem somewhat intellengent; an average Joe.

      • “You all are acting like this Social Media corporate propagandizing is brand new. It’s not even close…The like minded syndicate model dates back to the birth of the town cryer…then daily newspapers, radio, and TV.”

        That’s like saying “Why are you so upset about the fentanyl and the opiod crisis, opiod use has been around for millenia…” It completely ignores the many glaring differences between social media today, and the various older media models you mention.

        Anyone with a printer could reach an audience via local pamphlets/’zines’ and at least compete with other outlets on information distribution 30 years ago. (You still can, and I’m sure there is still a subculture doing it, but I don’t see them like I used to.) Try starting a social media platform today in your garage. I’m sure you know as well as I do why that’s so much harder and different.

        Even more significant and scary is that, when I read a physical paper, the paper isn’t looking back at me to guarantee compliance with the message. The same can’t be said about social media. If your livelihood depends on a social media presence, you’d better toe the line.

      • I always thought that the use of social media as a propaganda tool is of no consequence to American adults, but it is a problem with the young folks. I do indulge in the blogs selectively, but I am anti-social-media. I’m not sure how parents can effectively control or at least screen access to social media, but they must.

        That adult readers of this forum get so worked up about talking heads a quarter of a world away makes me wonder if I have underestimated the effect of media propaganda on adults. Of course, there is the issue of web personas, and I sometimes wonder if maybe I am listening to not-yet-grown titty babies, as opposed to the overgrown variety.

        Mark- You forgot to acknowledge the dean of influencers, Paul Harvey.

      • Excuse me, mark, your input might be balanced but your output isn’t. You and mike are twins from different mothers.

      • Mark, from the days of the town cryer until recently, we were never required to sign in with our “real name” to receive news, views, or whatever. Facebook and Twit are recording every word said and read and inferring views from comments from every user and maintaining a longitudinal file for each. Yes, you reap higher quality advertising intelligence and can target your clientele far more accurately, so this is good for YOUR business. It’s not generally good for the country or the world. It’s far too susceptible to abuse. I have no such accounts and won’t get any. When it’s absolutely necessary to get info from Facebook, I use a friend’s account. One who has zero interest in privacy. She knows what I do and allows it. If I didn’t have such access, I’d do without. My name will not be consensually associated with that database.

        Just because an information service is legal and available doesn’t make it right.

  3. George,
    -Ye Conservatives best be careful what you wish for in the name of a temporary soundbite. An anonymous Whistle-blower can ‘out’ D corruption too the next time another Obama is elected. Do you really want to destroy the system by taking away its key anonymity component?
    -Better to focus on the actual evidence, which so far paints a pretty dismal picture of Trump — what with two witnesses actually overhearing him, his own memo summary, Sundland changing his testimony, and Mulvaney himself admitting at his presser to numerous contacts with Trump on quid pro quo and telling us to get over it. And we heard Trump himself re-admit the core allegation on national TV. On the other hand, Trump keeps blocking potentially exculpatory witnesses (Bolton, Mulvaney, etc.) and other evidence (e.g., the actual transcript), which suggests he has no exonerating evidence. And it’s still week one.
    -So let’s wait, keep an open mind until all the evidence is presented. And maybe Trump will stop blocking important blocks of testimony like the full transcripts, the contemporaneous notes, and high level witnesses such as Bolton who characterized it in real time as a ‘drug deal.’ (Yikes, maybe it’s better to continue to suppress Bolton.)
    -But so far, detecting a pattern here? The Press finds dirt, so trash the Press. The FBI finds dirt, so R’s trash the FBI. The Diplomatic corp. finds dirt, so trash the Diplomatic corp. Very, very similar to the OJ defense, actually.
    -Always a tough decision. Might be better to just adopt Clinton’s strategy. Admit it, say I’m sorry, and then argue it’s not important enough to warrant removal. Kind of a killer’s defense dilemma — say it was in the heat of the moment because he and the dead guy are the only ones that truly know, so 10 years for manslaughter vs. life for murder. Best, Mike.

    • Mike, I don’t know how you continue to breath with your head where it is.
      There’s a) no impeachable offense and b) this sour grapes bullshit lady today? You and your ilk are in the wrong side of Sec 2385. Insurrection is insurrection. No high crime has been charged and the fact that this lousy windbag today has nothing to do with the case (other than good victim/tearing up) is yet another low point in the coup attempt.

      • Get a grip George. You are wrong on so many ways this time. Your comments are all Fox News Talking points. Sour grapes lady? Really?

        Does anyone actually listen to Trump? If he walked in to your place of business and asked for a job, would you actually hire this phony? He can’t speak plain English, can’t produce a resume, can’t provide proof that he has enough money to rub two nickels together, wears the same suit Or outfit everyday, watches TV all day, tweets the rest of the time, calls people third grade names, steals from his own charity, ran a fake university, hangs out with porn stars, cheated on his many wives, loses Daddy’s $430 million and declares bankruptcy 6 times…. yet has the gall to tell everyone how great he is.

        The high crime has been committed by the fools who elected him. Shame on all of you.

      • George, I respect you but you are one strange enigma. In response to my recent post, you asked me to go watch a Glen Beck video. That’s just so wrong on so many levels. Beck has zero cred. He was a poor student with only a high school education…(Funny how the conservatives have anointed white men with NO college degrees as their spokesmen…Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh…all lousy students)

        Beck, like Limbaugh has had a history of substance abuse and some shady life and health admissions…Beck was married with children but divorced in 1994 amid Beck’s struggles with substance abuse. He is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and has said he has ADHD. Beck later admitted that the family problems ranging from the divorce to his substance abuse had a severe negative impact on his children.
        By 1994, Beck was suicidal, and he imagined shooting himself to the music of Kurt Cobain. He credits Alcoholics Anonymous with helping him achieve sobriety. He said he stopped drinking alcohol and smoking cannabis in November 1994, the same month he attended his first AA meeting. Beck later said that he had gotten high every day for the previous 15 years, since the age of 16.

        He has claimed a bunch of medical illnesses, but many have disputed those and say that he made them up to gain sympathy. He touts that neural Chiropractic treatment cured him. Doctors think that is pseudoscience.

        So, what you are saying George is that we should not believe highly educated war patriots, career diplomats, Ivy League educated aides and believe this Beck yahoo? We should listen to huckster Hannity and loser Limbaugh too?The world’s minds have been flushed down the Fox crapper. God save us all.

      • The problem Mark is extremes, in any direction.
        Let’s start with State Screw the “establishment diplomats.” Let’s try to remember that the president sets foreign policy, shall we? When a department holds itself above review – as the silly wench did on the stand Friday, she’s no longer “under presidential control” – she has thrown in with a coup against a sitting president, non?

        Now, on the subject of degrees: Not applicable and highly elitist. For every R with a substance issue, there’s a D and I challenge you to put up any statistically valid backup to any contrary assertion.

        Now, as to the balance in coverage? Sure, Trump is not “coloring inside the lines” on many issues. But his mandate wasn’t to protect career public employees (many if not most of whom forget who they are ultimately responsible to). His mandate was to drain the swamp.

        The FACT that not a single bribe has been tabled with credible witnesses tells me the dems are on a character assassination drill. They have stacked a bunch of non-facts into a circumstantial pile of doggie doo that only a cretin would convict on. Or partisans and coup participants.

        I don’t think you’re taking either warhammer or me to heart when we talk about digital revolution. WH works in a federally funded setting and he sees the groups and their efforts up close and personal. Both on social and on the backbone, America IS under attack by forced that are working a corporate communism agenda.

        Things like Social Credit Scores and other attacks on the strong individual are only going to grow and with it, this headline rush to convict of nothing in at a “popularity rally” is simply not acceptable.

        I am disappointed that one clear thinker, such as yourself, can not remain open to either outcome at this early stage. On the one hand, there are wheel barrows of allegations and not a single chargeable crime. Even in the Stone case, it was all process crimes. ALL of the Trump associate convictions are “process crimes” and that’s what the lefty’s are rejoicing in?

        I wasn’t kidding when I mention the “2385 problem” the dems and former Obama intel types are fomenting with their slurs and continuing attacks.

        While the US presidency was limited to two terms (after Roosevelt went again) I would argue even now that Trump should get three terms, not two. Because the implants by the previous admin, such as Chiaramella et all, and the constant swipes by social(ist) coup participants has derived voters of their desired result: Drain the swamp.

        Instead, when you go off “soft thinking it” I’d argue you and the left need to man up and defend de process and end the political show trial.

        Do we hold we are One Nation, under God, indivisible and operating under due process and fair conduct? Hint: If we were, the FBI would not have implanted into the Trump campaign. Whoever runs in 2020 on the dem side, I’ve got $100-bucks earmarked for opposition research and a coup against them.

        Because, old egalitarian George says, what’s for the the D’s is good for the R’s. Impeach Gloomberg! Impeach Hillary! Or impeach the democrat.

        How’s it feel, Mark?>

      • “He was a poor student with only a high school education…(Funny how the conservatives have anointed white men with NO college degrees as their spokesmen…”

        Your so silly Mark..

        A coloring book sheet of paper in a frame on someone’s wall.. is not..IS NOT…a reflection of their intelligence…

        intelligence can be measured in a variety of different ways. Some believe in IQ tests, others place more stock in formal education or accomplishments. Being intelligent is not the same as using that intelligence to create something that no one else can, to somehow advance humanity, to be smarter than everyone.
        A degree basically says you had the money and the time to spend getting a sheet of paper..a degree does not define intelegence,skill or potential.

        https://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/75879-the-difference-between-intelligence-and-education/

        Einstein’s educational philosophy is again saying that his great scientific achievements required continuous effort and did not come to him “naturally.” He simply had a passionate desire to learn new things. 7. “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

        https://hbr.org/2007/06/learning-from-success-and-fail

        I personally dont put any value on a paper on a wall or an IQ test results.. doesnt distiguish what the potential of a person is..
        Being able to take advantage of opportunities that pass you by changes ones potential successful outcome.

      • I’d go further and not there is no correlation between a degree and “goodness” and that most of the fabulously wealthy people I know (with a handful of hard-working exceptions) made their mark in life either through luck or shady shit some in their backgrounds…

      • Oh yeah.. I fit in that comment.. I dumbed myself down to fit in..barely made it through high school.. my daddy wasnt rich..so college was not in the picture.. I didnt have time or money to waste on it..
        I wont say what my IQ is rated since I think that’s a joke..
        It doesnt measure a man..having the passion to question what if..and the insight to see opportunities and being able to take advantage of them..skills
        Every man woman or child can in their own way be considered a genius. They each have a set of skills that no one else possess

      • “there is no correlation between a degree and “goodness” 

        Or courage to do the right thing.. measuring a person’s potential and skill with a silly peace of paper.
        A man I knew while in the military. a simple man in so many ways loved to read and he totally enjoyed quizzing me lol.. brilliant in so many ways to I am proud and honored to call him my friend. One day we had received a notice of a full dress inspection all the top brass was to be there. I was scared to death his response relax your fine..on the day of the inspection he walks out covered with more gold and ribbons than I’d ever seen in my life..the CNO,secretary of defense and all the top brass driving by..their vehicles
        screech to a halt..they get out walk up to him..they all come to full attention and salute him..then get back in their car and drive off. I asked him what was that for. His response … I did the right thing..
        But what he was the most proud of and didnt get a medal for and should have was his other rescue..One that neither of them liked to share.. but one day over some adult beverages the story came out about his greatest achievement.
        While in the middle east he wanted to get a housekeeper to clean his quarters..women weren’t allowed to work,get as n education or make any decisions..when he went in search of a housekeeper he was told the only way was she had to belong to him.
        They directed him to the city square where a group of young ladies were lined up and the bidding began. He purchased her like you would walking into any store and buying a loaf of bread.
        She was his housekeeper. They became friends he taught her to read and eventually they fell in love and got married. He said she had a desire to learn. So he pushed her to learn as much as she wanted. Where she was that would have been grounds to have her stoned to death..anyway. she became one of two hundred most influential doctors in the who’s who book of the world. She lectured at the most influential schools..
        I dont even know if their children know the rest of the story..a man I admired had one medal for doing the right thing but in my mind deserved two..

      • Really Mark? You can’t dispute the message, so you put on your best elitist snob face to shoot the messenger…?

        I can think offhand of no “Ivy Leaguer” I respect for either intellect or intelligence, except Thomas Sowell. I’m sure there are a few, but to earn my respect, the first thing an academic must do is not wear his “academic pedigree,” or his(her) ego on his sleeve. True modesty ranks high with me, because it is a window into a person’s real character. Character is more important than “pedigree…”

        It’s probably a good thing John Hancock didn’t have any such reservation about receiving information from an uneducated silversmith…

    • Mike….

      I suppose maybe a refresher course in eight grade history might help with your delusions Mike….
      you have to have a separation of the classes..
      Limitations and regulations on profit margins for the necessary survival claims.. Just so that greed doesn’t take over.. read adolphs second book its all in there…. if you have already read it.. then re-read that thing.. then think outside the box.. it is exactly what he says to do. Then work to get your legislators to read the crap that they are voting into Law..
      I think it started to make the drastic turn was with deregulation.. regulating and price control of regular necessities was needed.. the reason.. they were vital and necessary needs.. by deregulating the market place on necessities opened the door for an avenue for epidemic of greed.
      the double whammy was by outsourcing jobs.. at this point all of those issues are dead horse issues.. and no one will change a one of them.. I see that it is up to industry leaders to take the reigns of this and guide the work place back to our shores cut the costs of the necessary so that a working man and woman can survive without putting in place a socialist regime.. without that.. I think in the end when it comes they will be the hardest hit.. the ones that can loose the most…DJT trying to turn the titanic away from the iceberg.. but its a slow go and he is using a paddle instead of the ships engines.. we are going to hit.. it is going to be ugly.. the puppeteers are going to get that world war they desire to get the crap that no one will need once we are all dying .. It will hit our country this time.. I am almost sixty percent sure of that.. and we haven’t any experience in living in Hell..

  4. George

    “what that means to the “climate monetizers.” ”

    A definition:

    In the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, an INDULGENCE is a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins.

    I expect to see Indulgene Stations set up here and there so that people can rid themselves of their climate changing sins and their money.

    Oh wait! That’s already going on in the corporate world.

    Never Mind!

  5. I remain optimistic. Always will. The vast sweep of human history for the last thousand years or so, is that of increasing Liberty and the individual’s prominence and worth.

    Lotta backsliding and Dark Periods, to be sure. But once there was no Magna Carta. Once there were very few democracies (little “d”) or republics where The People had at least some voice. Admittedly, there are today numerous “democracies in name only.” But, there are more true free countries and more individual freedom as time goes ahead — to smooth the numbers and see the actual long global trend.

    Having said all that — why, oh why does it seem so many people are actually AFRAID of Liberty, and seek to have the mind-comfort of a Central Authority running things?

    I submit that those who have read “Brave New Word,” “Animal Farm,” and “1984,” along with a few others (including maybe “Logan’s Run,” and “Atlas Shrugged”) have perhaps better understood the tendency for some demented individuals to seek strong Power over others, while their natural prey are only too happy and secure to be told what to do and what to think by their Leaders and their Betters..

    It’s a classic symbiosis — the Dominators and the Dominated.

    The Hunters and the Farmers. The Explorers and the Satisfied.

    …gives me the willies.

  6. For William:

    The 28 principles:

    Principle 1 – The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.

    Principle 2 – A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.

    Principle 3 – The most promising method of securing a virtuous people is to elect virtuous leaders.

    Principle 4 – Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.

    Principle 5 – All things were created by God, therefore upon him all mankind are equally dependent, and to him they are equally responsible.

    Principle 6 – All mankind were created equal.

    Principle 7 – The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.

    Principle 8 – Mankind are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights.

    Principle 9 – To protect human rights, God has revealed a code of divine law.

    Principle 10 – The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.

    Principle 11 – The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical.

    Principle 12 – The United States of America shall be a republic.

    Principle 13 – A Constitution should protect the people from the frailties of their rulers.

    Principle 14 – Life and liberty are secure only so long as the rights of property are secure.

    Principle 15 – The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free-market economy and a minimum of government regulations. Prosperity depends upon a climate of wholesome stimulation with four basic freedoms in operation:

    The Freedom to try.
    The Freedom to buy.
    The Freedom to sell.
    The Freedom to fail.

    Principle 16 – The government should be separated into three branches.

    Principle 17 – A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power by the different branches of government.

    Principle 18 – The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written Constitution.

    Principle 19 – Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained by the people.

    Principle 20 – Efficiency and dispatch require that the government operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority.

    Principle 21 – Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom.

    Principle 22 – A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men.

    Principle 23 – A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education.

    Principle 24 – A free people will not survive unless they stay strong.

    Principle 25 – “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.”- Thomas Jefferson, given in his first inaugural address.

    Principle 26 – The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore the government should foster and protect its integrity.

    Principle 27 – The burden of debt is as destructive to human freedom as subjugation by conquest.

    Principle 28 – The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race.

    These are the principles espoused in “The 5000 Year Leap.” The author distilled them principally from the speech and writings of Locke, Blackstone, Hume, Jefferson, and Madison.

    It might make an interesting addition to your library.

    In answer to your question: There is a large, and growing segment of humanity in the “developed world” which longs for childhood, and its lack of care or responsibility. Socialist social ideologies, with their huge central authority and “cradle-to-grave” control of everything are ideally-suited to “play parent” to these people, thus relieving them of adulthood and decision-making, in exchange tor absolute fealty and acquiescence to BigBro…

  7. Geeeze Louise G –

    Just had to poke the retarded hornets nest this AM..

    you guyz are seeing/feeling Ahriman and his super cool ultra high tech (read imortality) “8th dimension” transhumanist evil. It is working – look at all sheep walking around with heads down/buried in phone.
    Just as EVIL but in Ure face everyday – Jigsaw/Idea Groups – a collaboration of mossad/goggle &fb = real “blackwater” of current time period.

    This in Ure face evil has been working US/us for 200 years – back back back in time, No time Lensing/Project Looking Glass) – Johnny Carson told joke about prince andrew and how “if Fathers out there wanted to improve their financial standing to send in a nude picture of their lil nymphets at home (daughters) to p.a. at windsor castle” audience laughed out load..in our face spell casting – guess f-ing what – it worked.

    The WAR is on like donkeykong..

    ..for our struggle is not against fleash and blood (mark/mike) but against the rulers , against the authorities, against the powers of darkness, and against powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms..

    ARMOUR UP Boys and Girls.

  8. While riding in the car, I heard on Glenn Beck today that the Fed is going to send the printing presses in overdrive & flood the market with $$$ to preserve liquidity. Should be good for the stock market. But will this fuel the blowoff top to bring to fruition George’s 1929 senario. URE INDEX 30,000 is the key. Only PN subscribers will understand this. It’s golden. Is the crash in sight?

    Someday we have to pay for our ill gained stock market profits. It has been a great ride. Is the Fed in desperation mode? Is payback on the horizon? Seniors getting very little income on their bank CD’s would get a double whammy with a stock market crash. Would the Dems get the blame since the don’t seem to be very concerned to what is happening in our economy. I would say YES, & Trump would get reelected. The key is to profit from this as many did in 1929.

  9. TO ALL:

    ALERT ALERT ALERT

    I watched a video today by Glenn Beck. It was very well done and he provided documentation of what he has learned.

    The main topic is the subversion of our government by the State Department.

    This ties in with the current attempt to impeach President Trump. Mr. Beck ties together the efforts of George Soros with State Department personnel to foment revolutions world wide AND in the United States.

    Mr. Beck lays bare the true deep state and why it is terrified of it’s goals being made known to the citizens of this country.

    If you care about America, your family and the future life of your children you must see this video!

    Go here it’s free:

    https://www.glennbeck.com/video/full-episode-the-democrats-hydra

    • I refrained from comment until I’d had a chance to see it. Beck is accurate in what he said. What he didn’t do was lay out the entire game plan or name most of the names involved in this mess. He also didn’t post a flowchart, timeline, or roadmap.

      I don’t know if he’s being a “good journalist” (not saying stuff until he can prove it), a “good entertainer” (not dumping the whole story in one video), or if even HIS research staff can’t assemble the pieces in a manner which makes the whole convoluted mess, understandable.

      Well worth the watch.

      So’s the one titled “Economist: 2020 Financial Crash Coming”

      Which is a radio interview with Harry Dent. Dent sounds like he’s a Peoplenomics subscriber…

  10. Sir,

    Here’s a flashback in time. My reading list now includes “An Adventure” by time travelling pseudonym authors Moberly and Jourdain. They allegedly stepped back 130 years to a day in the life of the French royal court. The book is available on the archive.org website.

  11. Chris Stewart: “I would now feel compelled to ask you, Madam Ambassador, as you sit here before us, very simply and directly, do you have any information regarding the president of the United States accepting any bribes?”

    Marie Yovanovitch: “No.”

    Chris Stewart: “Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?”

    Marie Yovanovitch: “No.”

    Marie Yovanovitch: (para.) But he’s mean, not a nice person…

    In less than two minutes, Representative Stewart DESTROYED nearly 7 hours of “testimony” by Yovanovitch — testimony comprised solely of bragging about her “service to the Country” and whining and blubbering because President Trump was mean to her, but which contained no information from which any possible crime or political misstep could be indicated, or even inferred.
    __________________________

    Yovanovitch is dirty. Ukraine wanted her out because she repeatedly, actively interfered with investigations of dirty Ukrainian politicians and businessmen, and also the investigation into the origins of the Swedish Nazis who destabilized Ukraine before (and during, and after) the coup (those origins would be George Soros and Victoria Nuland, through Open Society and USAID respectively, BTW.) Lessee if either Glenn Beck or the U.S. Congress “discovers” that morsel and makes it public…
