Let’s begin with who Joe’s tax and spend plan will hit hardest.
Reasonable (relatively speaking) states include Alaska, Florida, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming.
If America was really honest about taxes, the federal tax code of 73,954 pages long, with each carved out by crooks for their pals, would be shorter. We’d have a minimum threshold (say $25,000 per person and $50,000 per family). Then 15 percent on everything. No long-term gains exclusions, no tax credits. 4 page code. And send Brandon packing.
People get the government they deserve. We must have done something really, really bad….
Way we see it, “Don’t Blame Me…” bumper sticker sales should rocket.
Inflation Tool in Play?
We assume you’d noticed one hell of a coincidence in the arrival of the CV-19 plandemic and the collapsing prospects for the American economy in 2020?
Asking a difficult question, around here lately. Is the supply chain shortages problem just another FedGov way to keep from busting the Effective Lower Bound on interest rates???
Go with me on the economic logic to it. The Plandemic caused people to really pull-in their spending – and that as proven in the Great Depression can spur an increase in inventories.
What IF – and just an IF we’re thinking through – what IF supply chain shortages are just another way to keep prices artificially high?
We notice Forbes saying today
“The supply chain into the United States is in trouble. Cheap and easy solutions can solve some problems, but the bigger challenges require businesses to consider a variety of possible solutions, half-way solutions and frustrating tradeoffs.”
But, in order to cover up the multiple levels of government driving this mess, here come happy talk stories to put you off the scent: Products delayed by the supply chain crisis will end up heavily discounted at stores, analysts say.”
Maybe they will (but we’re betting against it) because the advent of a supply chain crisis gives the Fed a third lever to pull and maintain plausible deniability for screwing the public. The first one is tapering (underway) and then after this comes rate increases. But the effect of supply chain shortages is very much like jacking up prices because scarcity builds price – and that shields the Fed from blowing out the effective lower bound as we cross the deflationary chasm.
Economic Data Spots
Producer Prices – Final Demand just out from Labor:
The Producer Price Index for final demand increased 0.6 percent in October, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Final demand prices moved up 0.5 percent in September and 0.7 percent in August. (See table A.) On an unadjusted basis, the final demand index rose 8.6 percent for the 12 months ended in October.
Over 60 percent of the October increase in the index for final demand can be traced to a 1.2- percent rise in prices for final demand goods. The index for final demand services moved up 0.2 percent, and prices for final demand construction advanced 6.6 percent.
Prices for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services moved up 0.4 percent in October after increasing 0.1 percent in September. For the 12 months ended in October, the index for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services rose 6.2 percent.
Earlier this morning, the NFIB Small Biz Optimism report dropped:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Nov. 9, 2021) – The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index decreased slightly in October by 0.9 points to 98.2. One of the 10 Index components improved, seven declined, and two were unchanged.
“Small business owners are attempting to take advantage of current economic growth but remain pessimistic about business conditions in the near future,” said NFIB Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg. “One of the biggest problems for small businesses is the lack of workers for unfilled positions and inventory shortages, which will continue to be a problem during the holiday season.”
Seeing how inventory shortages will turn into price increases? Try to keep up. Futures were down a smidgeon. But the real fiasco could be the inflation report tomorrow (CPI) which could be a shocker. BUT, drives the economy away from the effective lower bound. Good news about shortages? Er…
Oh, my, isn’t this good Kabuki, too? Computer chip makers can’t share all the data the U.S. wants for examining shortages. Aw, sure they can…
The Next Door NarcoState
We’ve been telling you for years that America will eventually lose the Mexican-American War. Of course, it was supposed be to over in February of 1848. But – because Americans are stoopid, our leaders are worse, and we can be fooled twice, the LIC (low intensity conflict read: border war) continues. All thanks to the Cartels.
Which brings us to the report Mexico anti-money laundering chief resigns amid scandal. Well, golly, which “surprised face” should we put on?
All while another caravan cometh: Migrant caravan headed to US border amid Mexico tensions. Anxious to replay the US government sell-out in a lawsuit that gives inconvenienced criminals $450-thousand each. What farce!
Of course, dimocrats in places like California put on the erudite tones and pretend the center of the universe is Cupertino or San Jose. No borders is a good thing… And by the narrowest of all possible metrics that’s true.
But at a broader level (we’ll lose Taiwan, the border leaks, and runaway inflation sparked by fools in Washington) show a different reality. This is why liberals nit-pick single facts and refuse to look at big pictures. Especially those which make economic sense.
Global Energy Disasters
Pipeline Killer Joe is setting us up for massive power problems if the winter to come is typically cold, too. As luck would have it, Joe’s just keeping America – once energy independent but he wrecked that – in line with global outlooks.

Of course, where President Windage gets it wrong is “Being average is a choice, Joe!” Could someone please explain that you only give up honest title to American Exceptionalism if you get talked out of excellence by deranged, hating, woke mobee’s?
A little Truth in Music from Paul Brady may help.
Better late than never, I suppose: Pentagon intensifies effort to evacuate families of Defense Department service members from Afghanistan. Can’t rush into this kind of thing. Oh, except Slow did!
Pandemic tensions are being played like music. As evidenced in Van Morrison sued by Northern Ireland health minister for covid criticism. I think it would be really interesting to take 100 covid tests and run them on the same person. Because ever since Italy backed down their numbers by more than 95%, we’ve been wondering if some portion of disease cases hyped (reported if you believe) could be like counting presidential votes in the US: Depends on what’s being counted, and by whom, doesn’t it?
Moderna Vax note: France releases new advice for under-30s on Moderna Covid jab. Spoiler: Don’t – due to heart inflammation risks…
But will they work better than Ivermectin? EXCLUSIVE Amid spike in cases, EU to shortly approve first COVID antibody drugs. Psst – buddy – wanna buy some trials results?

Woo-Woo Tues – Beyond Time
I didn’t get a lot of specific feedback on my book Dimensions Next Door, but a marvelous inquiry came in this morning which I wanted to share. Because it may add to your thinking on non-ordinary things:
George, I purchased and read your “Dimensions” book, and my critique is short since I generally like it. A bit hazy on the connection between what the pilot encountered just exactly and any woo-woo….I sorta felt like you left something out.
Indeed I did. But to begin, I don’t make any specific claims – yet – that there is any connection between “woo-woo” which would include extradimensional entities such as show up at Skinwalker Ranch by reports.
What my book does cover are reports of normal physics changing under a number of conditions. The first (general set) is illustrated in the discussion of the Swedish explorers who documented the set-up for lifting massive 10-ton rocks up a mountainside to build a new temple.
In his example, we see only sound employed.
In the aircraft (and late-night drivers experiencing dimensional shifting over time) we not only have sounds but also a flickering light aspect. You know, Dr. Ron Mallett (and Bruce Henderson) wrote a book (2007, Time Traveler) about Dr. Mallett’s life-long work in the field. Described as “…A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality…”
What’s interesting about Mallett’s work is that he’s been studying whether a fancy manipulation of light might be a key into actual time travel. While Mallett is fascinated with the potential role of coherency of light, when we consider both the Bruce Gernon 1970 event (book: The Fog) or the British air marshal who flew into (a) future and then returned (Readings: Fascinating story of time-travel in Scotland reveals pilot’s eerie encounter on airfield. “RAF Air Marshal Sir Robert Victor Goddard claimed to have experienced an amazing sight as he flew over a base in East Lothian.”
That there is a change in physics at the intersection of “flashing lights” and “high sound field densities” is further argued when one reads accounts of WW II Foo-Fighters. (Readings: What Were the Mysterious “Foo Fighters” Sighted by WWII Night Flyers?” A far-field effect?
Taken as a whole, then, we now have a case for acoustical levitation based on pulsed sound, time distortion based on sound plus light flicker rates. The latter we can break into local/experienced (Gernon, Goddard) and far-field effects (Foo fighters).
Flicker rates is also implicated in a report once phoned in to Coast-to-Coast AM from a reader who was traveling at night with some friends on a freeway at an “extra-legal” speed and the combination of flickering lights and the thumping on the car wheels on expansion joints, were present when a claimed time distortion occurred.
As mentioned in the book, at least I think it’s in there, is a possible role for another property. One may be suspended particulate matter (smoke) common to all the flying events, though in levitation, no mention was seen in the (machine translation) of source from Swedish.
There may be other field-modifiers in play (when getting into time distortions) that are not clear. For example. the U.S. military was using the AUTEC radar adjacent to Bruce Gernon’s point of departure (Andros City, Bahamas).
Moreover, the Goddard flight (in 1939) may have had a radar angle to it, as well: “On June 17, the first target was detected—a Supermarine Scapa flying boat at 17 mi (27 km) range. It is historically correct that, on June 17, 1935, radio-based detection and ranging was first demonstrated in Britain.”
Importantly, radar also plays a role in the opening of “dimensions next door” in reports of odd happenings at Montauk, New York (out of the tip of Long Island). (Readings: Montauk Project – Wikipedia).
There are quite possibly other effects. Including (and this is most closely aligned with the flickering lights aspect of the effects) the purely electric field-driven effects (as in the Philadelphia Experiments). Or, perhaps a specific angularity of some off-Earth energy, such as local-hour angle of the Sun at times effects were noticed.
What’s not in the book (in sufficient depth) is a related discussion of a genius-level inventor by the name of Robert Beckwith. (Readings: His patent filings.) In fact, when you look at the sheer number of patent filings, Beckwith is a prodigy by some measure.
Important to the discussion here? He’s likely the father of modern (zero-flight time communications, which we covered a while back on Peoplenomics) as well as his discussion of time travel as related to his work on zero-flight time communications. From the Patent application we read:
“0038 Six well known orthogonal dimensions are used
routinely by electrical engineers. The Six dimensions of
engineering consist of the three dimensions of Euclidean
Space X, y, and Z as shown in FIG. 1, the time dimension T
as shown in FIG. 2, the electric field E as shown in FIG. 3.
The magnetic field B is not shown but is at right angles to
all of the other dimensions.
0039 AS to the time dimension, I can not accept a
physical universe with five dimensions going from plus to
minus infinity but with the time dimension Starting at a point
to convenience mathematicians in our lifetime here on Earth
and their big bang theory. I believe that time also goes from
plus to minus infinity with an infinite number of universes
collapsing and rebanging chaotically as shown in FIG. 2.
Our universes have always been here! With this conclusion
we have a well ordered set of six engineering dimensions all
of which go from plus to minus infinity.”
Beckwith – who passed on in about 2009 – reported working on the WW II time travel (Philadelphia Experiment) project. It’s in his summary work (45 pages on ScribD) where the Navy’s three-card monte of the U.S.S. Eldridge is unraveled. Turns out,, related Beckwith, that the experiments involved a converted yacht the Martha’s Vineyard commandeered for military use. During WW II it was the IX-97. (Ship’s picture is here.)
The plan here (*like at George’s place in the home recording studio) is to synthesize as many aspects of the Gernon reports as possible (and run on December 1 around 3 PM local time) to see if any effects are noticed. Lacking the deng-shen trumpets, and a few hundred drum-beating monks to drive then, we’ll have to resort to sounds generated in Samplitude and Reason in the home studio. Odd Instrument sounds courtesy of Gary Garritan’s World Instruments.
And since I don’t want to buy miles of speaker wire, we’ll play with digital delay lines. And sure, some LED strobes and some RF sources, as well. Likely use a 110 dB sound field, which is about what Mooney’s of the era ran inside. (Which is why pilots love NR headsets…)
The odds of success are almost infinitesimally small.
But your intuition is right: The first book (until we “get the key in the lock” is somewhat incomplete, as are all others in the field. Until we move the key just right.
“My only other gripe was the tables and charts were in B&W in the print edition (which I purchased), but I’m guessing in full color in the digital version. Makes it kinda hard to follow.”
Actually, the tables are black and white in all versions. Sorry.
Hope this helps a bit on your fork of the adventurer’s highway. Not too many people are working on assembling these puzzle pieces. Many (perhaps Mallett) are almost singularly focused on one aspect (coherent light). But the etiology of the effects predates lasers. Remember, I didn’t set up my first low-power CW laser until 1966 in the basement of the UW EE building as a high school science report – I’m still unclear how that ever happened.
As a “synthesizer of information” professionally and at the hobby level, my money’s on a combinatorial approach, though. Something that could be done in antiquity (Tibet, Egypt) for tasks like lifting. Pure sound., Advancing to more complex effects (time distortion) as additional fields (light flicker) are synchronized. Then toss in RF pulses….
