There is a “clear and present danger” to America coming this weekend to a country near you. It’s idiotic leftist protesters who will be out – funded by left-wing benefactors who suck money out from the gullible – on the notion that their protest means something.
Bad news from Reality: After the vote, it doesn’t matter..
There will be a Kavanaugh vote. Delays are done.
The vote can go either way, but for now (and with the 7th FBI report) it looks to us alike Kav be approved in a “squeaker.”
This predictably cause the lefty-idiots – who, promoted by CNN and other all-too-liberal media – will be demonstrating their little hearts out over how bad Kavanaugh is.
The key thing to watch by thinking people, is whether there’s a point to the foul-mouthed histrionics. (*There won’t be.)
Reality says the U.S. Senate has NEVER reversed course on a confirmation EVER and is hardly about to begin that NOW. I will grant you that immediately upon confirmation, articles of impeachment will be floated by the loony left. You see, they are not completely crazy: The left is expert at monetizing crisis. Take the million dollars raised for Dr. Ford. Whipping up the gullible and taking their money is what the left does. Divide and Fund Raise is the technique.
Anything landing in my inbox containing the word “ford” has been auto-trashed for weeks, now. She’s worth more than me, now. When’s the book deal coming? That email filter will likely remain active for another month or three an d maybe for years. Because Kavanaugh is the best thing that’s happened to Jackass Party fund-raisers in years.
The Jellyfish Party (*the spineless remnants of what was once the Party of Lincoln that managed to end slavery and other progressive causes) has been sitting back – dumbstruck and paralyzed – through most of the circus with the exception of Lindsey Graham.
Don’t know if you’ve ever read the late Eric Hoffer’s book “The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements” but there aredandy Hoffer quotes to be found both in the book and on the web.
“Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves.”
Have the “ring of truth,” brothers and sisters?
The antics of the Left this weekend will reveal numerous facts to rational, thinking people.
If there’s protest after confirmation, then it belies the truth of an ongoing “soft coup” against the elected government of the US.
The Left, which has been unable to win at the ballot box, does better when strong-arming the Courts. Which is why America has gone in 1965 from a progressive (20% minority) county to a (40% minority) angry country attempting a coup without a single vote. Thank the Courts and the Left. Why do you think they’re such “open borders” fans?
Check with Europe on how border-less worked out, lol. Check with Venezuela on how socialism works, too, while you’re at it.
What should American’s be protesting? How about this: Giving children the (prompted by sick grown-ups) “right to change sex.” This smacks of the medical practices that caused Josef Mengele to be hunted after WW II. Yet,modern social engineers are working their “sex change” agenda hoping for the same outcome Mengele managed: Getting away with monstrous medical experiments and living to a ripe old age.
You see, it’s all in the packaging, the marketing, hype, and social shills.
With nothing to monetize, America’s now monetizing sexual mutilation of children. The Great Divers will ensure everyone salutes. That kind of stuff makes me sick. We are a lost country, sitting on our assess, following crooked demonstrations run by paid-actors…while the real work of sinking America continues below the waterline. We don’t focus on the sick because that’s what? Mean? Instead, the distraction operations abound. Under the waterline? Borders, gender-change, glorification of socialism, white-shaming, male-bashing, feminization of all……. that’s what’s underway. Drilling through the hull of the great Ship of State.
Back to point: If the Senate confirms Kavanaugh and “violent demonstrations follow” – remember these are NOT “demonstrations” attempting to influence a future outcome. The SENATE VOTE will decide THAT.
IT WILL BE THE LEFT’s CONTINUATION OF THEIR ATTEMPTED COUP AGAINST AMERICA.
I don’t want to tell you Monday “I told you so...” But, the Kav vote has the look and feel of an excuse to act badly. Antifa and the (Clinton apologists) in the MoveOn offspring along with the anarchists, supported by the left-pimping NE Liberal Media will continue The Big Lie – that it’s about Kavanaugh.
But it ISN’T. It’s about the Rule of Law and the gullible millions who can’t accept that their candidate lost two years ago.
Anyone protesting -after the senate vote- (as I view it) will be self-identifying as anti-American revolutionaries and terrorists. They should be summarily treated the same way we would treat terrorists in any other war zone, worldwide.
If Kav is confirmed. the “”soft coup” terrorists will use this weekend as an excuse to “go hard” and their propaganda media will sell it like soap.
Send this to everyone you know so real Americans can be ready for the antics sure to follow.
(Sometimes, when we see the future clearly-enough, we’ll offer an opinion on how to brace for and deal with social-engineering and anti-American efforts to come. We’re all equal, regardless of details and we really need to get back to living a balanced life in a balanced country. Remember when we had one?)
Now, Back to Economics & Jobs Data
Got the BLS Jobs report just out. Press release goes like this:
“The unemployment rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 3.7 percent in September, and the number of unemployed persons decreased by 270,000 to 6.0 million. Over the year, the unemployment rate and the number of unemployed persons declined by 0.5 percentage point and 795,000, respectively. (See table A-1.)
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult women (3.3 percent) and Whites (3.3 percent) declined in September. The jobless rates for adult men (3.4 percent), teenagers (12.8 percent), Blacks (6.0 percent), Asians (3.5 percent), and Hispanics (4.5 percent) showed little or no change over the month. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 1.4 million over the month; these individuals accounted for 22.9 percent of the unemployed. (See table A-12.)
In September, the labor force participation rate remained at 62.7 percent, and the employment-population ratio, at 60.4 percent, was little changed.
I will spare you comments since you can read the Table A data here and draw your own conclusions…
What really matters is the report is showing REAL STRENGTH because the CES Birth-Death model took away 67,000 jobs in September and report STILL came in strong. That’s a bit bump for Trump, protests aside. On the other hand…
Let’s Do Trade…
Yeah, that jobs data was so much fun, let’s keep rolling out press releases and charts, shall we?
This is not so good – the balance of trade increasing so much means consumption is up…but until we get more on-shored jobs we still have the rest of the world to deal with. And yes, it’s why putting tariffs on foreign-made goods is key to getting prices to where making things in America will again begin to make sense.
After the data, Dow futures were back to even after being down earlier.
The Consumer Debt report will be out this afternoon from the Fed.
Fed Thumb on Scales?
In the latest Fed H.6 Money Stocks report, we see through the end of July that M1 and M2 were both being increased at 5.4% annualized rates basis the 90-day window.
Now we notice that the current 90-day window shows M1 going up at 4.4% annualized while M2 is go9ing up 4.9% annualized.
Which means what?
Well, it means that there’s a bit less “easy money” to pile into the market. So we can expect stocks to level off and decline for a bit. Also, when there’s not as much money being shoveled into the system, it means that rates will rise further.
If you’re skeptical that it’s all so simple, go look at the chart of the 10-year Treasury over on Yahoo Finance and you’ll see rates are going up and that may slow the stock bubble. Though, inflows from an imploding Europe will matter this winter. So will corporations which will at some point run out of repatriated money to fund stock buy-backs.
Quips and Snips
Elon Musk may never have heard the old Dakota farmer wisdom: “Never get in a pissing match with a skunk.” How do we know? Tesla shares fall after Musk mocks SEC on Twitter.

Then there’s the ongoing global cyber-war. Russia’s latest move: Russian Envoy Warns U.S. ‘Inciting Tensions Between Nuclear Powers’ With Cybercrimes Charges. Maybe if they didn’t run troll farms, such charges wouldn’t come up, you think?
Have a great weekend – come on back Monday to the East Texas Clear-Thinking Institute…bring all your friends…
