Retail, Euro Banks, Russia

Delightful email from back-up consigliere out in Century City overnight.  Sizing up the Thursday market action “Just vacuuming up the sucker money.  Dow erases 500 point loss, surges into huge gain in rollercoaster day..” With a link to Wall Street rollercoaster: Dow erases 500 point loss, surges into huge gain.

Running out the Bears to run, anyone?

With the pre-new release futures today, here’s how the Elliott view came in:

What a marvelous day, huh?  Ready for another?

Retail Stagnant

It’s hard to keep a narcissistic, virtue-signaling, gender-confused, woke country down, ain’t it?  (Or is IT?)

“U.S. retail and food services sales for September 2022 were $684.0 billion, virtually unchanged (+/-0.5 percent)* from the previous month.”

Gotta say weaky-weak on the auto’s is bad.

We have a lot of peripheral thinking to do on this one.  Starting with the weekly rails data out Wednesday:

“For this week, total U.S. weekly rail traffic was 494,413 carloads and intermodal units, down 2.4 percent compared with the same week last year.

Total carloads for the week ending October 8 were 232,930 carloads, down 2.8 percent compared with the same week in 2021, while U.S. weekly intermodal volume was 261,483 containers and trailers, down 2 percent compared to 2021.”

The next GDP report won’t be out for a couple of more weeks, but in the meantime, this is crack-up boom times.  but we’ll know more in a couple of weeks when we’ll get a reading on how fast the air is coming out of the Housing bubble.

Social Security Rethink

With the increase in Social Security of 8.7 percent, we think there’s a golden field goal free for the taking if one of the two (*utterly contemptible and crooked) political parties were to offer a law that would state something like “The annual inflation adjustment for Social Security is net to recipients after Medicare and medical cost adjustments.”

Because after a 14 percent hike in Medicare costs this year, looks like they could come down a shade more than five-dollars (!!!!!) in 2023.  Try not to spend it all at once.


On other note here:  I have a few friends who are debating whether to keep working another year OR take retirement right away in 2022.

The reason is that if your new benefit (working till March 2023 in one example) will be the same (or greater) than taking early retirement but then getting the 8.7 percent bump.

I’ll let you know what my friends decide on, but hey!  If more work and no more money, that’d be pretty simple math in our book.

Euro Mess

As we turned in last night, we were pondering this one: Remember Credit Suisse Collapse Rumors? Swiss Bank Could Be Short $8B, Goldman Sachs Says.  Not surprising, but the US Fed has reportedly popped $6-billion of  to the Alps to help out.

Can financial engineering save the day, or is it just a stop gap?  Credit Suisse weighing offers for securitized product unit sale: report.

Europe is just a mess:  Thanks to Biden, Europe has a cold winter ahead, and with Vlad Putin off saber rattling (see this none-too reassuring headline: Kremlin officials warn of ‘guaranteed escalation’ to ‘catastrophic World War 3’ we have to wonder how fast and how far Europe could slide from here.

Meanwhile, the Moscow Times is reporting how U.S. Pushes Allies to Assemble Air Defenses for Ukraine.  So, not exactly the stuff of solid REM sleep, know what we mean?  Neither does Putin warns of famine, widespread social upheavals, especially in poorest countries.  Takes two to sanction, though and we’re not exactly going into the court of world opinion with clean hands, you know?

Stay tuned. We can flash any time now.

Papering the Don

Yep – by the Don’s early plight:  US House of Representatives’ committee approves subpoenaing Trump for Jan. 6, 2021 events. Will he use this occasion to grandstand?  Or will an ego check drive a more reasoned response?  Inquiring minds.

Still, we don’t see the point to any of this other than offering the democrat party a 24/7 free marketing channel to bash anyone.  I mean to the point of driving out rational people like Tulsi…

Then there’s Joe Biden who is being constantly remarketed in stories like Why Joe Biden Paid Four Times Extra to Buy Tacos & Quesadillas at LA Food Stop.  Two ways to look at this:  Either A) Biden did something nice or B) Biden doesn’t watch his own money, either.

Still, we give the guy a break.  Maybe his game is off because a little family problem is about to break.  As in How the White House Is Bracing for Potential Charges Against Hunter Biden.

Musk War.  We told you that the libcons put the bum’s rush on Elon Musk for daring to wonder why there aren’t some peace talks about Ukraine.  So, as Elon Musk is under federal investigations, Twitter says in court filing, we notice Elon Musk says SpaceX can’t keep funding Starlink services to Ukraine – DCD.

ATR: Downscaling

Next week’s chapter of my latest book (non-fiction side) gets into a discussion of “downscaling.”  Which I mention because (again) I went to the dentist’s office this week and they were shocked how little I’d aged.  (Basically, not at all.)

Although there are 20 specific actions anyone can do to live a longer life, few people do much about it, but one move is downscaling.  In other words, stop giving a rip what other people think, come up with your own plans, own your world, and only worry about money to the extent that it helps or slows your progress on goal.

Marvelous stress reduction.  And getting to be common around the fringes (and even the epicenter figures) in Hollywood.

The latest example coming in Mark Wahlberg left LA mansion for Nevada to give kids ‘a better life’.  While going from a $90-million to a $16 million home may not exactly be what Downscaling is about, it’s at least a step in the right direction.

I think Wahlberg may be waking up to the “Ure Line.”  Which is drawn between where you own things or the things own you.

I did just enough TV and radio in Seattle that I don’t envy Wahlberg’s  decision process.  Known a lot of very, very rich people over the years and yet there comes a point where the money doesn’t matter; it’s the how free you are to conduct your own life-adventure that counts.  (Not entirely – you can still leave me your 930 turbo.)   Being recognized in a checkout line loses its glow real fast.

When people get to a certain place on the “fame” track, it becomes a burden.  Like the president can’t go anywhere without Secret Service.  Which gets to “Is he really free?”

One of our long-term economic outlooks is that when the Depression settles in over America, how long before we replay the 1932 Lindberg kidnapping case?

People are just as crazy now as they were back when.  It would have been nice in the Roaring Twenties to have held a lot of fame and fortune.  Hell, Al Capone did it.  But comes a time – when a country heads into Depression that the crazies come out.

In such times, being an early adopter of a “downscaled life” and going to few public events including awards and such really begins to make sense.

Watch for downscalers – as people wise up to the risks posed by angry peasants and their digital pitchforks.  Wahlberg is demonstrating superior judgment, as we see it.  How smart is the rest of Tinsel Town?

But did he check the water supplies up in Nevada?

  1. Re: Chancellor of the Exchequer vs. The Bank of England

    The BBC has a great visual on its news homepage. It’s a minute long video of a British Airways A380 making a soft landing at Heathrow as the UK’s finance minister returned from America for “urgent consultations” with the PM.

    Indeed, the 38 day wrecking ball tax break extravaganza by the Chancellor has been beheaded. One imagines moving trucks will be at #11 Downing Street this weekend to remove any personal effects of the honourable member back to North Surrey. Remember folks, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    God save the King.

  2. George,

    Just a passing thought this morning. “Puddin Head” Joe in his latest rantings, as per instructions from his handlers, is bashing the Saudi royal family. This falls in lock step with the “Great Reset” group’s plan. In order for the “Great Reset” to march forward, one major obstacle needs to be shoved aside, the USA. Our lowly dollar only survives because it is the “world reserve” currency. That came about when Henry Kissinger negotiated the petro dollar. Piss off the Saudis, and bye bye petro dollar. Petro dollar gone, world reserve currency status gone, and thus good bye USA. Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together?

  3. a big what if ::: Trumps says, “Yes, I will show up with dancing shoes on”

    I must be a moron for having money invested from a slot machine seat,,, the casino owners make “bank”, just have little bets in play, damn gamblers addiction, at least I told Keno to ‘go to hell’ but did stop by the bar with Keno yesterday and left fresh peanut butter and jelly fudge from a local ice cream/fudge store for the girls behind the counter, just a gift. They love this old man ;-) Happy songs
    Have a good day Mr Ure

  4. Dude,

    Truths to tell Time around hear…is it real or memorex?

    What is a Tulpas?

    Are we all Tulpas, living in a artificial/simulated reality?

    Was Reality destroyed on July 16th, 1945 ..White Sands, NM ?

    Was Mayan doomsday date occulted and changed by one year ?

    Did Mayan World really end 2013 with the “passing” of “comet” ISON ? Was ISON a comet or a black hole ? If black hole, why didnt we get “spagettified” or did we?
    Did we get projected into an artificial timelime..?

    Whatever reality -timeline we be on – We are only 100 seconds from MIDNIGHT, according doomsday clock..dundundun!

    • cosmic frogz,

      Yesterday an arguable tulpamancer extraordinaire Mr. Biden stopped the presidential motorcade at a Mexican takeout in The Village co-owned by a pair hailing from Tijuana. The President is understood to have ordered tacos under the name of the democrat candidate for LA mayor, Ms. Bass, who was accompanying him. A “public service discount” of 50% was applied to the purchase. It should be noted a pay it forward moment took place. Almost four times the bill total was paid with instructions to “give the next person a free meal”.

      Additionally, City News Service Inc, whose owner has decamped to Nevada, reported on the posh democrat fundraiser held last night at the Brentwood home of an award winning television producer whose early successes included “Happy Days” and “Mork and Mindy”. Mrs. Pelosi was present along with Mr. Biden for guests desiring photo-ops. Of the latter, the former said “This is a great President.” In turn Mrs. Pelosi was accoladed as “the single best speaker in American history.”

      And in the words Al Michael’s Thursday Night Football quote at Soldier Field sure to enter television lore:
      “We do promise you a touchdown – eventually.”

  5. Kidnapping a nuke guy …

    General Sergei Surovikin: Who is Putin’s hard-line new commander in Ukraine? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63217467

    Yeah, I’d say things are ramping up a bit.

    I’m still trying to figure out how Biden thinks it’s right to “punish” Saudi Arabia for not producing as much oil there, when Biden screwed up our own oil production here. Nobody’s punishing him.

    And with Biden wanting the world to be green, you’d think he’d applaud the Saudis for slowing down.

    In the meantime, we face 2 Nuclear Powers …

    https://www.defenseone.com/threats/2022/08/us-military-furiously-rewriting-nuclear-deterrence-address-russia-and-china-stratcom-chief-says/375725/

    I think the list is a bit incomplete … I’m thinking 4, if you add in Iran and North Korea.

    Ironic how all this has came to pass (with more to come) is exactly what we surmised before the 2020 election. Damn, what incredible foresight we have. Amazing !!

  6. Back in Shmita days the serfs never kept anything. All debt was forgotten but all assets went back to the bank and the game started again. Banks back then were the Leader.

    It’s too late for Kroger. $WMT is going full “Company Store”.

    “Walmart Inc’s fintech startup will start offering digital bank accounts to thousands of workers and a small percentage of its online customers in the coming weeks as part of an initial beta test, Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday.

    The retailer launched a fintech startup with investment firm Ribbit Capital in January last year to develop financial products for its employees and customers.”

    Yesterday I was reading a story about a renter murdering her landlord. An odd line in the story is below. The writer somehow equates dismembering a landlord as “plaguing crime”. “The liquor store was robbed, a bunch of landlords were dismembered again. That reminds me I have a parking ticket to tear up.”

    ” A Chicago woman is accused of murdering her landlord, whose body was found dismembered on Monday as crime continues plaguing the nation.”

    We have to be ready at all times. Make it a habit. Put on your slippers put on an ankler. Get out of the shower, dry, then put on the belly band next.

  8. When I watch and read the news everyday now Johnny Cash song starts to play in my mind “ Burning Ring of Fire” ….going down down down in that burning ring of FIRE.

  9. “But did he check the water supplies up in Nevada?
    Write when you have those kind of problems,”

    OK, I finally have a ‘water problem’ here where I nominally get 130 inches annually. It has not rained here in nearly two weeks. Unheard of. Actually got the hose out to water some yard plants… like the little Cacao tree with a mature pod almost ready to harvest. Don’t want to lose that one. We’ve had ‘backwards’ SW winds bringing up humid tropic air but no rain. It feels like that muggy gulf air you live in. And the trees are blooming and my allergies are overwhelming. Even at $0.55/kWh I broke down and started the air conditioner! Bring on the winter rains… please!

  10. Futures may have shown an ‘up’ opening., but that is not what the options boards were saying. As the market opened and went up briefly., I jumped in.., NASDAQ now down 233. Gotta love put options!

      • RE “the world IS crazy”

        Right, everyone “knows” the world is crazy (which always “conveniently” means the world/OTHER people, usually the governing authorities, are crazy but not they themselves, of course). Yet no one typically offers an good explanation on why that is.

        Have you ever wondered WHY the world is crazy? How do you explain it intelligently? Do you have a coherent explanation for the craziness of the world that makes sense (religious fantasies are obviously excluded because they only “make sense” and are “valid” to fantasy lovers but never to reality-based truth-seekers)?

        The WHOLE big picture (not just a part of the big picture) that makes up the human condition, that explains the craziness of the world (if you ever genuinely wondered WHY it is that the world is crazy), that describes human conduct over millennia is the hegemony of the 2 married pink elephants in the room and has never been on clearer display than with the deliberate global Covid Scam atrocity — see “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” … https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html

        (CAVEAT — only read the 2 pink elephant article if you’re GENUINELY interested in the truth and therefore “CAN handle the “inconvenient” truth” …)

        “2 weeks to flatten the curve has turned into…3 shots to feed your family!” — Unknown

  12. “Kremlin officials warn of ‘guaranteed escalation’ to ‘catastrophic World War 3’”

    Folks need to back away from the lamestream and realize Putin is neither crazy, nor is he extreme (from the Russians’ viewpoint.) Were he to have been replaced, the Russians would be in their bunkers and we’d be a cinder, by now.

    I like Sean Hannity — can’t stand to listen to him, but I like the man, personally. However I really wish he’d get off the “Putin’s gotta go” bandwagon and quit opening his mic to the damn’ neocons. ‘Same goes for many of the rest of the Rightist talkers, and ALL of the Leftists. I know ratings are important, but when you put idiots on your shows, after a while you begin to sound like everybody else.

    The talkers are starting to cite Petraeus, who couldn’t carry Schwarzkopf’s boots, as an expert. Hell, I saw one of the Vindman twins on the tube a few nights ago, offering military advise on how we should fight the Russians. TeeVee “experts” should be ex-field commanders, not CentCom paper-pushers, unless Centcom worked his(her) way through the trenches to get there (like an Omar Bradley…)

  13. “US House of Representatives’ committee approves subpoenaing Trump for Jan. 6, 2021 events. Will he use this occasion to grandstand? Or will an ego check drive a more reasoned response? Inquiring minds.”

    He shouldn’t go. They can’t make him (it’s a violation of the Constitution and Federal law) and the precedent has already been established:

    Give ’em Hell Harry was subpoenaed by CONgress. He told them to GFS.

    If Trump goes to Congress, his mouth will put him places the kangaroo court can’t. I suspect his legal team is doing their darnedest to get that fact through his Queens upbringing.

  14. “Wahlberg is demonstrating superior judgment, as we see it.”

    Mark Wahlberg is a street punk from Boston.

    I suspect he’s never forgotten his roots, and the Wahlburger stores have kept him close enough to street-level that his instincts still speak to him louder than his publicist and manager.

    • He’s slowly been buying auto dealerships around here. Been at it a few years now … and they seem to be doing OK. After the first one it took a few years before they bought the second, now speeding up the process a bit as they have learned the business. Probably one of his brothers is running them I would guess.

  15. A lot of bad drugs have come across the open boarder … a lot of people became addicted because life sucks economically and emotionally … many people are trying like hell to “come clean” and get off the shit … but a drug used to help them is now in short supply … which will sadly send those trying, back to the nightmare …

  16. If the market drops 30% next week the Leaders will be trading cities. Or the market closes and reopens in the future.

    “7%, 13%, and 20% swings for S&P 500

    A fall of 7% for the S&P 500 once markets open would trigger a separate circuit-breaker rule that pauses market-wide stock trading for 15 minutes.

    If the S&P 500 index SPX, -2.15% were to extend a fall to 13% on the day in the regular stock market session once trading resumes after a 7% halt, it would trigger another 15-minute halt. Trading wouldn’t stop if the decline occurred after 3:25 p.m. A 20% drop in the S&P 500 would trigger what’s known as a level three circuit breaker, which would stop trading for the remainder of the session. ”

  17. 8.7% increase offset with co-pay increases. I try to imagine where this ends, we know this is a ponzi scheme as it exists. There are not enough tax payers to pay for retirees. We are 31T in debt, rising many millions every day. Most of us tax payers are at a far higher net loss with tax increases, our our medical cost increases and inflation increases. It is sad that so many didn’t plan for their retirement years with their own savings and investments, knowing SS was doomed to this fate, yet continue to insist their children and grand children pay them in ever increasing amounts. Over the past 12 months 38% of my spending is taxes, vs 9% for groceries, of course this doesn’t count sales taxes, nor energy or fuel taxes. I get almost no government benefits, but they take nearly 40% of my productive life to distribute out to others. And still folks complain government is not providing them enough. It is almost like people don’t understand where government handouts originate. It is not good that government prioritizes cancelling student debt, subsiding rich to by BEV and have a proxy war in Ukraine. At least their priorities are in order \s.

    • There are not enough tax payers to pay those of us who put money in are entire working life. I agree but they need to pay us all back with interest. The way to do it is to lease the federal lands with oil and the ones with gold silver and other metals and minerals. All the money from the lease go to pay all who have put money in.

  18. Its a Bird !

    Its a Plane !

    Nein nein nein ! Its a ficken Bitcoin..aint they purtty?

    Swirling down the drains of world banks goes the currencies – a muffled “HELP” is heard some wheres over the Alps in the EU – they done run out of Money!

    How does that Happen ? How does one of the biggest investment banks in the world runout of Money pray tell?

    Wow, When You Cant Even Trust the world BANKS, Who Can You Trust Mr. Ure ?

    1) Ure Government – Nein
    2) Corporate – Nein, Nein
    3) Supremes – see 1, 2
    4)Church – See 1,2,3

    There IS NO TRUST IN THIS WORLD any MOAR . Therefore BITCOIN .

    Worthless you say ? then I guess None of Youse cyrpto haters want a FREE Bitcoin- currently valued at $19,200.00. Prolly same ilk as coastal elites – fine crowd that..scheeesch!

    • If someone gave me a FREE bitcoin, the first thing I would do is convert it to real gold coin… immediately! BTC is less of a ‘store of wealth’ than even the U$D.

  19. The down scaled life. I have given a lot of thought to establishing a homestead in a more remote area. What keeps me from moving away, is the joy I get in spending time with my granddaughter. Each week we have her for most of a weekend, and though she is a handful at 3, I have trouble visualizing my life without those visits. Sure work on a homestead would have its own rewards in accomplishing tasks and the continued fight against nature, but is the cost and isolation worth it? There is almost no way to convince my two children to also move out to the country. They enjoy the life of city/suburbs. So my life might be shorter, I may regret those decisions later in life, but those hugs, and I love you Papa, brighten my life.

    • I know the feeling Joe, I moved one town away from my grands and now I hardly get to see them. Grands really add to ones life.

    • You make an excellent point Joe. Although I admire people that can move to remote areas and become survival sufficient, if a nuclear war comes, it doesn’t really matter where you are, does it? I would rather die with my arms wrapped around my loved ones than to be sitting in a wilderness cabin by myself eating wildberries and fresh brook trout.

      We can all prepare for what is coming as best we can regardless of where we are. In the meantime, those grandkids and other loved ones in our lives are what makes life worth living.

  20. My Aggregate Index had it’s second largest rise yesterday, of the year.., and it gave it all back, plus 11 points today.

  21. I got this today & can’t resist.

    Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post. She is a strong advocate for LEGAL Immigration.

    What if they left?

    What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America? I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News have written a column titled, “Mexican Visitors’ Lament.”

    I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, “Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?”

    Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?

    So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below It’s a good question…it deserves an honest answer.

    Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders. What would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? This may surprise you!

    In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

    It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone. Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

    Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. Denver’s 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

    In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

    If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home,’ the U.S. economy would return to the Rule of Law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage.

    Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

    No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids.

    Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

    We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually and would vacate our country.

    In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ’18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

    America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy which currently suffers a $30 trillion debt.
    More then $30 TRILLION !!!

    At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

    Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country – brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders. Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities’ greenhouse gasses.

    Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

    The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘ Third World ‘ inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I’ve seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

    We already invite a million people into our country legally/annually, more than all other countries combined- with growing anarchy at our borders.

    It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

    Interesting statistics below!

    Here are 13 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:

    1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that’s Billion with a ‘B’)

    2. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

    3. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

    4. $3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That’s $1.2 Billion a year.

    5. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

    6. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

    7 . 200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

    8. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.

    9 . During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.

    10. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.

    11. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.

    12. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

    Total cost – a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!

    And we don’t need a wall?

    If this doesn’t bother YOU, then just delete the message.

    Otherwise, forward this to everyone YOU know.

    THOSE WHO WOULD DISREPECT OUR FLAG, HAVE NEVER BEEN HANDED A FOLDED ONE!.

  22. What is really astounding, is this has not been obvious to most casual observers:

    Phony civil war era social justice memes have been used to attack families who were victims in the civil war era. From my perspective, it seems to be a contrived civil war do over, with the ultimate goal of wrecking any vestiges of the American middle class. Progressive partisan variants may be the worst offenders, but all the partisans and their high-roller secret policemen seem to be exploiting the situation. Meanwhile, beat cops get defunded.

    The CCP are not the only outside agitators supporting the partisan hate-fest.

    The season for kicking incumbents to the curb has arrived. Vote for individual candidates, and let some fresh air in to the gang dictated elected position rosters. In Texas, don’t forget you can send judges to the showers. I would rather see parliamentary reform, than allowing any single partisan gang to dominate. A few Libertarians, Independents, and maybe even a consumer protection wonk or two keeps the rest a little less dishonest.
