Swamp-Lock: Whitewash & Jay-walking

The left-leaning press and crooked politicians (left and right) are scared as hell about what’s going to come out if the digging into Ukraine and the “international manipulators” gets too much further.  Game-on for the Durham grand jury, as we see it.

What you can read, studying the headlines (as one would scan a  libretto for clues to the how following scenes will play in an opera), is a plot-less wonder with a deranged cast of characters; none of whom should be nowhere near a public stage.  Both parties.

But, let’s back up.

I told you to expect a whitewash by the “serving two masters, AG/congress)” Inspector General report out Monday.   Exactamente!

And, as usual, we see media bias (and an inability to get to the heart of this train wreck) all over the place.  “Report on F.B.I. Russia Inquiry finds serious errors but debunks Anti-Trump plot” says the NY Times.  We thinkk they’re being hasty.

More evenly, Mediaite rolls with “Lou Dobbs: DOJ IG Report a ‘Whitewash,’ Shows ‘The Deep State’s Awesome Control of Our Permanent Bureaucracy’.

There was painfully little coverage in the Digital Uprising’s press about one other biggy (lost in the clouds of battle, was it?):  The president of Ukraine again trying to pop the left-wing media bubble by saying (to the void):  “No one pressured me…

But no, that’s not enough to pierce the LWMB (left wing media bubble).  Instead, we get stories, like the  Washington Post’s “analysis” (we read: spin) “Why Ukraine’s president said there had been ‘no pressure’ from Trump.”  It’s a dandy attempt to re-write history by making incomprehensible references pretending to explain what “pressure” means to Ukrainians.  (A five minute ViseGrip application after reading it and trying to follow its…whatever…. snapped me out of it.)

Mostly ignored, though not by honest media like the  Washington Times which (in predicting a whitewash, as we did) hinted at how it all seemed choreographed in that “Nowhere in any of the stories did anyone bother to ask the question: What precisely triggered the need for this investigation of the investigators?”  I’m back to reading the IG Report as soon as this morning clicks out.  I haven’t found it yet -if you do, send me the page number.  So far, it looks like that was totally glossed over.

Predictably, House Bolsheviks are pissed that both Durham and attorney general William Barr aren’t rolling with their Deep State whitewash. Sometimes digital uprisings work, sometimes they don’t.  Call Hong Kong for details, Nancy!

Main point of this note is to advise that this is all far from over.  Two reasons.

  1.  As the “Legal Insurrection” blog points out “Durham’s team “advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”  If you follow any news site, and they didn’t cover (already) the oddity of a prosecutor with a sitting grand jury calling bullshit on Horowitz, it’s time to GTFU and find yourself more reliable news sources.
  2. The second act in the Impeachment Circus will feature the House Judiciary Committee  still only able to come up with two fluffy charges against Trump.  One is that he “obstructed Congress.”  Hardly impeachable because it’s a given that democrats have historically had a dogs-chasing-cats relationship with republicans.  Notwithstanding, Trump will almost undoubtably be impeached in the House –  where the dogs of politics are in charge.  The Senate, though, is a different veterinary setting.
  3. Second “big deal charge” is Trump’s alleged “abuse of power.”  Another Nancy note is in order:  “Lady, he  is the freakin’ President and, OMG don’t look now, but obvious in the released transcript was he was doing his job  and in bounds.”

Incredibly dumb move by the dems.  Besides, as we have been saying, this is all a show to sell tickets for a rematch between Hillary and Trump as that’s what the polls dictate.  See “Hillary Clinton emerges as top choice of Democratic voters in Harvard-Harris presidential poll.”  A Clinton-Bloomberg ticket is how we see it today.

Yep – a sham of an impeachment and a scam series of “debates” by disposable wannabes who will be leapfrogged by the Big Shots who really run things.  You’ll see.

Meantime, why haven’t any perps been jailed, if there were all these “failures” in the FBI? BTSOM.  Horowitz is trying to play Deep State Marriage Counselor, in our analysis.

Because, dear reader, the Swamp takes care of its own.

As Trump rolls into the final year of his half-presidency (due to the insurrectionists), despite plenty of promises and rallies about “draining the swamp,” we got us something far-different, instead:

Swamp-Lock.

Breaking Economic Data

NFIB Optimism screams higher:

Small business optimism posted the largest month-over-month gain since May 2018, rising 2.3 points to 104.7 in November. The exceptional Optimism Index reading was bolstered by seven of the 10 Index components advancing, led by a 10-point improvement in earnings. Owners reporting it is a good time to expand increased by 6 points and those expecting better business conditions increased by 3 points. The NFIB Uncertainty Index fell 6 points in November to 72, adding to the 4-point drop in October and the lowest reading since May 2018..”

And Labor’s Productivity and Costs report is just out:

“Nonfarm business sector labor productivity decreased 0.2 percent in the third quarter of 2019, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today, as output increased 2.3 percent and hours worked increased 2.5 percent. (All quarterly percent changes in this release are seasonally adjusted annual rates.) From the third quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2019, productivity increased 1.5 percent, reflecting a 2.3-percent increase in output and a 0.9-percent increase in hours worked.”

After the data, Dow futures popped positive, but Europe was tanking.

So, what time do they play the “trade deal” card to cover up?

Digital Uprising Notes

Ahead of some devastating future news story, that will be so BIG and so SCARY that Internet licensing will become mandatory, we can still see the pieces falling into place.

Take, for example, how there’s been  an ongoing cyber-attack against the city of Pensacola after a Saudi national dotmil trainee shot up the naval air station killing three sailors and injuring others.  Remarkably, local officials don’t see a connection.

Meanwhile, the Pensacola perp isn’t the only cyber perp-problem for DoD – check the Army Times report on how an “Army Cyber Command major jailed on federal child porn charge.”

Sounding  like long-term readers of this site, The Interpreter is calling it “Share, like, comment, attack: Social media as weapon and battlefield.”  Oh, and less obvious than Catcher in the Rye.

Alfred Labrano of the Philly Inquirer sums the year up well in “Unhappiness from social media, addictions a legacy of 2019.”

Jubilee Marketing

We’ve been writing, as you know, about long wave economics and past practices to ameliorate the damage from Kondratieff economic cycles – driven in part by compounding debt – for 20+ years now.  This is why are we not surprised to see the Jubilee as written in the Old Testament book of Leviticus, coming back around again…  Why, next thing you know, there will be stories about Ecclesiastes’ “No new thing under the Sun…

Trends for Friends

Words are the fence lines of thought.  As ‘They’ named Merriam-Webster’s word of the year.

One of the most-searched stories in trend studies overnight is how Honeymooners badly burned in New Zealand volcano. 13 people are feared dead.

New Cold War on resources?  Not unthinkable since the Moscow Times frames $740Bln U.S. Defense Bill Targets Russian Pipelines.

Where there’s smoke, there’s….Thick bushfire smoke blankets Sydney.  Another higher albedo, cooling event…

Save us from Political Correctness Disease (PCD) as the new whine is Golden Globes criticised for all-male director nominees. FMTT, does everyone have to be a victim and belong to a “protected class,” anymore?

Off to work on Peoplenomics where we see a Grand Unified Theory starting to arise out of our “time machine meta data studies…”  We lay that out for subscribers tomorrow…

Betwixt then ‘n now?  Write when you get rich,

  1. Speaking of Ecclesiastes (Ch10: v2) “A wise man’s heart inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left”.

  2. George,

    I think you have it pretty much nailed on the impeachment business. The big rush to impeachment is an attempt to ‘beat the buzzer.’ In this case, the buzzer is Durham and the lesser known Huber investigations. I also suspect that there will soon be a strategically timed release of related documents that were declassified earlier this year. 2020 is shaping up to be damned interesting.

    I also wanted to add a quick note on this Pensacola business. I’d guess that most people don’t know this, but the U.S. military has a long history of accepting foreign officers into professional military officer training and schools. I’ve personally sat along side officers from many countries. The most impressive and intelligent foreign officer that I ever had the privilege of serving with was from Singapore. The man was a true gentleman and a professional. He’s also the guy that taught me how to properly use chopsticks and for that I’m eternally grateful.

    Inversely, the least impressive and intelligent officers were from the Saudi Arabian Army, which is staffed by children of the privileged class. To a man, they were lazy, moronic and a danger only to themselves. The caveat here is the Saudi Arabian National Guard. This is the military force charged with protecting the Saudi Royal Family and they’re very serious and professional. I’m not sure which group the shooter was representing, but I have my guess.

    P.S. If I recall correctly, I’m pretty sure that a while back here (late September or early October) I predicted HRC reentering the presidential race. Lucky guess?

  3. Clinton – Bloomberg Ticket: A direct from New York nightmare. Could there be anything worse. Both could be in a Nursing Home by election time. Hillary needs to get back in the political picture to increase contributions to the Clinton Foundation. I heard it is in a financial crisis since she left politics. Chelsea needs her job as Ex Dir.

    • Unfortunately the real problem is US (the general public) who puts up with b/s of that nature. JMHO! There are two classes in our “so-called” equal society, and it seems all over the world it’s just like that!

    • Ugh! I’ve had to endure too much proximity to both of those rather foul individuals! Mrs Clinton was a terrible senatress and the worst SOS, while Bloomberg always had a superiority complex. I honestly believe that Broom Hildog needs a proper and immediate prosecution for her misdeeds. I only know one democrat that really likes her as a candidate, and that’s because she thinks we need a woman in the White House. Guess what? We already have Melania, and she’s all woman!

  4. I suppose Debt “Jubilee” means different things to different people. To me, both sides of the ledger get wiped out during Jubilee.

    During the original “Jubilee ” the world was different – if there were any Jubilees. The King still kept ownership of everything (land) after Jubilee so while “debt” was wiped out, ownership wasn’t changed.

    A Jubilee is not the government canceling all the debt then in the next breath, “we’re going to have to keep Social Security, the kids don’t want them.” “Pirates in the Gulf, turn the military back on….”

    What’s going to happen during the Modern Jubilee – at High Noon on some day a trumpet sounds, whatever we are touching at that time defines ownership.

    We call it out, “The cereal factory is mine!”

    “I call dibs on the nuclear plant!”

    Run around slapping QR Code stickers on stuff defining new ownership?

    In modern times any of us can Jubilee out at any time, Chapter 7.

  5. Yo G – is video of and still shots of World Leaders/Elites/Corp CEO’s/Politicians ect. caught in despicable acts of violence & “crimes against children” enough to try and license/restrict the Internet?

    I can hear it now – ‘these are “deep fakes”, photoshopped we need to protect our citizens from such horrific fake content.
    Protect from the content mind U, not the perpetrators.

    How many corp CEO’s have retired/quit/fired since Trumps executive order regards Crimes Against Children and Asset forfeiture?
    How many of these tech execs have plans on moving out of US in near future..we know what U did Jack.. yes we even know how much $ schiff-for-brains got for selling out his Country – look at those eyes, U can smell it.

    Hundreds have been fired/retired from the FumblingBumblingIdiots, the State Dept. and Clowns In Action since our duly elected PRESIDENT took office in 2016 – the PANIC is real..

    Rumor has it another source of income for the deepstate is about to experience an extreme drought – not to mention extreme prejudice – just south of the border..

    Zombieland Rule #2 – dont be stingy with your bullets – always double-tap.

    “this is all a show to sell tickets for a rematch between Hillary and Trump”

    I ponder what type of juice they have Hillary on? Is it an array of pharmaceuticals or perhaps something with a type A, O- or O+ on the container?

    In 2016 at the end of the debates Hillary looked like death warmed over! Now she looks like she’s had some kind of rehab.

    I’m just wondering how she expects to endure the rigors of the campaign trail.

    • Just betting here, but I’d guess human growth hormone and assorted helpers like nicotinamide riboside, dhea, and metformin…just guessing. Those extracts of human blood do wonders, we hear…

      • the plaque removing mesoglycan in trials had 5 other prescriptions not contraindicated in European blind studies. what then if metaformin is listed as propagandial antiaging…!

    • Guess U have not seen “the video” of the Hildebeast getting directly transfused via a young dark complexioned male. There is worse – see Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – hotel room scene – Adrenochrome..its magically invigorating.

  7. I can’t see behind the WSJ paywall so I don’t know what Pensacola officials are basing that on, but it may have some merit. I work for a state agency in Florida, and a local government entity that I regularly communicate with recently got hacked, their email in particular, and they wound up paying the ransom to get control back. Since then, I’ve been getting phishing emails that are clearly based on my old communications from that entity. They may have been able to track down the source that way. There have been quite a few of these local government entities getting hacked in Florida lately, it certainly *could* be related to the shooting, but I wouldn’t assume it.

  8. Good news for the stock market: “U.S. Small Business owners plan to increase pay in the coming months, the most since a record in 1989.” – Nat’l Federation of Independent Business & Bloomberg.

    The other day on my Baofeng, I was listening to 3 good old boys talking. One said, the last 3 years has been fantastic for business, & he looks for more good years to come, saying it has more than made up for the previous 20 years which were a struggle. He mentioned gumballs, I don’t know if that is slang for something or is the actual gumball business. I couldn’t ask him since I don’t have my license yet.

    Seasons Greetings for the wary.

  10. The year 2020 has made me think. 20/20 vision or Visual acuity is measured with a Snellen chart. Normal vision is 20/20. This means that a test subject sees the same line of letters at 20 feet that a person with normal vision sees at 20 feet. I think it should be the Smellin’Chart, because I am smellin’a lot of crooked Republicans getting thrown in the pokey next year.

    This made my mind race a bit. What will we see in 2020? What will be the vision of the US…and what will”blind”side us? One thing for certain. If it’s a Clinton/Trump re-match, I am moving to Costa Rica. Battling monkeys, snakes and spiders the size of my head down there is a vacation compared to Sh*# Show…The Sequel.

    Or maybe it’s a rapturous event. Could it be we read the Mayan Calendar wrong? The normals who can see though the forest and have scam-dar vision will be spared. Those that continue to be blinded by false idols in Trump and the Hillary-da-beast will be fast into the ether.
