China now owns the world. It really should piss you off, but the deck is stacked. Besides “woke” is fake and cover for a China-lite version of Social Credit planned for ‘Merica.
All as the U.S. is suckered into greater racial division (thanks, CRT!) and into hopeless gender bending (thanks sex-pref marketers!), the realities that matter to the real economy are covered up by the complicit Mainstream Media. Whether on purpose (treason) or just laziness (stupid) we’ll leave it for history to judge.
Be Sure to Miss
Center ring comedy is due today as Slow Joe focuses on more “hypographical errors” in his vaccination co-marketing appearance today. He won’t address why Fauci lied/misled Congress on gain of function spending, but hey! Just drink the damn Kool-Aid, right? Ignore the marketing intensity of the word “uptake,” too. It’s being quickly beaten to death by the automated story re-write software the once vibrant press has become dependent on.
Facts in Plain Sight.
China gets Afghanistan.
There are trillions in natural resources. In the wake of the power vacuum left by Slow Joe’s withdrawal (which looked more like a “cut & run” to us), China comes in with minimal cash and takes the prize. Afghanistan: China to provide Taliban with $31 million worth of food and Covid vaccines.
Let’s see, Joe: We lose $82 billion in hardware, China writes $31-million and who gets the resources? Fire the State Department! Blinken and Nod, huh?
The happy-talk in the investment world is China will “go slow” committing to the new government? Crockachit. This is global chess and they will have “mate in three.”
We have a dozing checkers player – and no confidence left.
Chips Are Down
Meantime, the global chip shortage (which makes Taiwan the most strategic real estate in the world because of the micro chip companies there) continues to take-down American jobds:? Ford to extend downtime at Kansas City plant due to the chip shortage.
The Buy’ed Em administration’s plans seem to be laying out like this:
- Make billions for vaccine makers with perpetual mandatory shots.
- Gin a “Return to Afghanistan” in some form. Increasing risk of terrorism at home, but that will be an excuse for more federal control over honest working people’s lives.
- Leave the southern border open, encouraging illegal immigration.
- Some of which will have God-knows-what variants.
- “Urgently” pass a massive pork plan and build homes for people who can’t afford them…
- Increase income taxes on working stiffs.
- Warn Social Security recipients to plan on a leveling-off (then decline) in benefits.
Did I miss any of the big deal points?
Depression II in the Wings
Been a while since we put the whole picture out on the public side. As of the early futures today, here’s how the 1929 crash and the present inflationary blow-off line up:
Thus, when this sucker breaks, we will likely (in Ure’s view, anyway) make the reversion to the mean and then you’ll live in what could readily become an unmanageable country. The BSA – Balkanized States of America.
The Fed’s Plan in a Nutshell
To our way of thinking, the Big Tech Coup – which decided the outcome (and essentially stole) the outcome of the 2020 election – has usurped the Constitutionally-elected government. Because Socialist Media gets “special treatment” from the desperate power-clingers, it makes Social and arm of government already.
Yeah…like Social Media is where “social credit scoring in China” comes from.
Not seeing it yet? Life in a post-democratic world with digital consensus calling the shots. This, the most base (reprehensible) divisions (race, gender, religion, national origin) are THE huge money-makers for the Social Coup leaders. Who, in turn “got the backs” of the vaxdustry. Which is why vax shaming is so de rigueur. All that remains for the Global Corporate Order (GCO) is the finishing touches on interlocking directorships.
Well, except we’re pleased to report, despite their neo-Nazi lockdowns, Australia may be able to “Cast off the clicks of Oppression” because News sites are liable for defamatory Facebook comments, rules Australia’s High Court. If we had any integrity left in Washington, perhaps the Social Media Coup leaders could be held to the same standards as independent (non Sect. 230) media are. No chance of that, though, huh?
Yeah. You bet. Not without the “right people” getting into those stunning social IPO’s, right?
What the Fed Had Right
Was the idea that if they printed enough money (which is why Jerome Powell hid the money supply data making it uselessly delayed) was so you wouldn’t figure out this:
If you print enough money, the hyper-inflation to cover up massive DEFLATION will be covered-up. Which…so far…it is.
Which brings us to the near panicky Janet, Yellen about the need to raise the Federal Debt Ceiling pronto.
Sounds urgent, but it fixes nothing. Because Janet will simply green-light additional “Making Up Money” so no one notices the music has stopped and a government-Big Tech coup has seized America’s future. Death of real industry and innovation and back to virtue-signaling as a new “climate, gender, race, and orientation-friendly” pseudo-industry.
Still, gives current office-holders a way out without getting stuck holding the bag. But far from an honest game.
About those people whose extended benefits ended this week. In Forbes The End Of Federal Unemployment Benefits, And The Return To Work.
Just like 9/11 led to the surveillance state, we can see how social media is leading to new industries such as gender-checking, race-documenting, border-unguarding, and ESL for Persians as huge growth industries. Which will all be housed in Biden’s big Housing push.
None of which would be bad, per se, except maybe a little nuts…)and we get the tab…)
But the Geezer Class sees stories like “How much money will you lose if Social Security Benefits are cut?” And sorry, but we just gotta ask:
“Where the f**k is representative government we supposedly live under? We don’t know anyone who supports this air-headed sell out to technology!
Stalin’s Unemployment Data
While collectivization was failing in Stalin’s horror show, the numbers always looked good. And we see the historical echo in this morning’s “good” unemployment claims report for the week here in used-to-be-America:
Of course the problem is?
Well, other than a lot of it is from people running out of benefits? Oh…that part Ye gads!
America’s Last NEWS Paper?
I’ve about given up on the NY Times and WaPo because of their elite/left view of the world. They get wrapped around the axles of politics and causes. Don’t focus on fishing, hunting, DIY projects, or just meditation for our tastes. (Their gender coverage is also like reading marketing collateral, not news, but that’s another issue…)
So here’s a story unlikely to be see in the parrot press: Its from the New York Post today which is quickly becoming one of the last outposts of honest reporting “Portland professor slams university as ‘social justice factory’.
Of course, the professor speaks “truth to power” (heresy to them) and it’s a damn shame that a good mind has been hounded out of academia…but get while the getting’s good, we figure.
Academia began screwing the pooch before ClimateGate in Copenhagen years back. Jiggering data to scam tax money with climate. (Which, Covid beat them to, but that’s another story). I’m sure the Prof will have a much better life out of the brainwashing camp.
Follow your heart, the Truth, and the data, and you’ll get somewhere.
ATR: Demising Time
Off to another brutal morning of tearing down the old deck on the front of the house.
The good news? A lot of the old 2X8 treated joists are still in really good shape. When I built the deck, joist tape was not a bazillion dollar industry I used fencing tar.
But the damn stuff works. As a result, I may be able to save enough wood to get a “bonus deck” off the recording studio when done.
Elaine and I had our first martinis of the fall season out on the screen porch since May, last night. A little warm still (around 85 at “down time” but still, promise of cooler weather in the South means a lot of summer-heat-delayed projects will ramp up. Such as the decks.
Lumber prices are in what looks like a several weeks-long bottom now, so while keeping an eye on the pricing over here, we have even more construction plans lining up.
That battery-powered SKIL PWRCore 12 Brushless 12V Compact 5-1/2 Inch Circular Saw has been a pleasure to use. Lasts long enough to get a couple of hours of real work done before the gates of hell open, and the afternoon heat sets in. Very happy with it.,
