The Global Social Turn: Deal with It

No, you can’t blame Donald Trump for the shooting in El Paso this weekend, nor can he be blamed for the one in Ohio, either.

The facts, as they come out, make it clear that the shooter’s “manifesto” was not linked to Trump but to decades of Congressional inaction.  And, though it will make them even more crazy, the loud-mouth, in-your-face, militants in Congress who have made it clear as “inverted racists” that want to attack America from the inside.  Americans don’t like being “attacked” whether externally (as in 9/11) or as in the first “Red Scare” which swept America 1917 to 1920 following revolution in Russia.

While stupid people may buy into the “2020 Democrats lay blame on Trump’s rhetoric for shootings” the truth is a lot uglier, more pernicious and  dangerous than that.

It’s a poisonous mix of violent video games, social alienation, social media and the need to be noticed, the inaction by a derelict Congress, widespread over-medication of young people and we can even toss in the lefties in education.  Broken marriages and parenting failure, too.

Complicit in all this is a sycophant Northeast liberal press.  This morning, the NY Times lays it out as “El Paso Shooting Suspect’s Manifesto Echoes Trump’s Language.

What the “holier-than-thou” press misses, being out of touch with the patriotic middle to right in America, is that many of the manifesto claims were not those of Trump and were supported by data.

While it’s wrong to take direct, violent action, an open-minded read of the manifesto reveals a person who was acting as a patriot.  A word you won’t hear much in press reports which are hard-selling “racism.”

Oh, and without a word of criticism of the “In-Your-Face” anti-Americans who are long on criticism and blame, yet by offering nothing (beyond a rewrite of Canadian Green New Deal) have placed themselves as 30-year old demagogues who haven’t accomplished anything in life other than the trickery of language and the art of misdirection.

Trump didn’t shoot.  The border leaked.  There is an invasion yet these three simple facts are left out of the brainwashing media reports.

No, we are  n o t  standing up for the shooter.

The Bigger Picture

Think Markets and Massacres.

What we are reminding you is that last week, the Global Consciousness Project was showing an unusual (huge) amount of  global coherence and that – more than anything Trump ever said – is what’s  really going on.  Global coherence of the Global Mass Consciousness is not very well understood.

It would be easy to pass off as “woo-woo” except that in addition to mass shootings (which fit our 130-150 day mass murder cycle to a tee) we have a second indicator:  The collapsing stock market.

This morning, the Dow Jones will likely fall more than another 300 points at the open, according to the futures.

These shooters didn’t move markets elsewhere,  something else did.

Normally staid Australian markets were down 1.98%.

Then Asia opened and Hong Kong was down 2.85%.  That’s be like the Dow dropping 755-points (basis the Friday close).  And it had nothing to do with El Paso. Japan was down 1.74%.

As the global sense of panic evolves, we saw other indicators as European markets were coming online.  France opened down more than 2%.  Germany which got whacked last week was down more than 1.7%.  England?  Down 2.2%.

The panic…the global maniacal meltdown…is both global  and real.

Yet another indicators is in commodities:  Gold passed $1,456 and silver was up to $16.50.

Yet other commodities were reflecting a huge “inward pulling” which might be akin to something like “cocooning.”  OIl was down more than one percent,   Many commodities were down 1 percent and more…

The Strauss and Howe Turn

In “ The Fourth Turning”  Strauss and Howe laid out the broad framework for what is coming upon us:  From Wikipedia:

“According to the theory, historical events are associated with recurring generational personas (archetypes). Each generational persona unleashes a new era (called a turning) in which a new social, political, and economic climate exists. Turnings tend to last around 20–22 years. They are part of a larger cyclical “saeculum” (a long human life, which usually spans between 80 and 90 years, although some saecula have lasted longer).

The theory states that after every Saeculum, a crisis recurs in American history, which is followed by a recovery (high). During this recovery, institutions and communitarian values are strong. Ultimately, succeeding generational archetypes attack and weaken institutions in the name of autonomy and individualism, which ultimately creates a tumultuous political environment that ripens conditions for another crisis.”

A look around the web for guidance on “who’s who” lays out the Age Mapping this way:

2000 to Now: New Silent Generation or Generation Z.
1980 to 2000: Millennials or Generation Y.
1965 to 1979: Thirteeners or Generation X.
1946 to 1964: Baby Boomer.
1925 to 1945: Silent Generation.
1900 to 1924: G.I. Generation.

We note that the  Thirteeners/GenX are now rolling out of control and the Millennials are coming to the fore.  The first M’s, born in 1980 are now nearing 40, a time in life where people tend to “get real with themselves” about what Life’s about and what they’ve to do show for 40-years/14,600 days of sucking air.

Some Millennials I hold in extremely high regard:  Many are members of growing Maker Societies that are springing up all over the world.  Some, and on both sides of the political spectrum, however, are plain crazy.  The self-important  Squad on the one hand and the desperate/violently expressed  Patriots (as one identified himself) who turn to violence.

What’s gone wrong for Millennials?

  • The soaring divorce rate among their parents that collapse the handed-down process of values anchoring.
  • The mass marketing of violence-promoting video games.
  • Hamstrung teachers who, having failed to keep control of their classrooms, see to it that childhood medication is handed to Jane and Johnny as the first sign of fidgeting in a boring classroom.
  • The gig economy where permanence, and other “de-anchoring” takes place
  • And Apps like  Tinder than “hook up” the young all too easily, leading to an excess of disposable relationships.
  • Oh, and social media itself, the highest expression yet of the me-me-me generation.

All pretty sick, but again, Trump had nothing to do with it.  Repeat after me:  Social Media. (Read Inside the FBI’s effort to study social media posts of mass shooters).

Violent video games?  “The Evidence that Video Games Lead to Violence Is Weak:  Violent video games make people at most a little more aggressive.”  Not non-existant though.  We doubt you’ll see much made of this link, or its kindling effect on users.  It will be “politicized away.”

Especially because “Video Games Could Be a $300 Billion Industry by 2025 (Report).”  It’s reminiscent of the early days of the tobacco industry denials…  Stupidly, sadly too, it is being warped into a left-right context for the genuinely useless.  When the Washington Post says the link is “…not backed by research…” we remember Amazon’s boss owns the WaPo and how big an income stream are video games, controllers, boxes…?  Just asking.  Like climate, we living in a world of competing business models…

Yet Collapse is Possible Now

You can see pieces if you’re a studied generalist because they are all over the playing field today.  In the NY TimesDrug Overdose Deaths Drop in U.S. for First Time Since 1990.”

Yet it’s almost like good reporting at the Times comes from two different companies.  One anxious to tie in “Trump language” on the one hand, while the inverse twin explains to the effect “Millennials may be sobering up…”

The juxtaposition is impossible for the closed mind left, or the right extremes to consider.  They believe themselves the New Righteous Leaders of the New Generation coming to power.  Arrogant inverted racists on the one hand and drugged video-game-like gunmen defending country on the other.  COD, anyone?

The sane people remaining?  Well, like I said, there’s a rising
“Makers” movement and that’s where our future is coming from.  Which is why Elaine and I have a 3D printer.  Because we can see the world ahead wherein people will email each other things not brain waste like  emoji’s and “Likes.”

But, Where Trump IS Accountable

…is on his administration’s trade efforts.

Dow futures drop 380 points after China retaliates, escalating trade war” reported  CNBC.

Trump is between a rock and a hard spot on trade. We need exports and the Maxx grounding didn’t help.

Trump believes (wrongly) that if the US makes foreign goods more expensive that American enterprise will step up, build factories, and make products here at home.  And consumers will support it in droves.

While Trump wants that, because it would improve the balance of trade and thus reduce the federal deficit, past efforts in this direction have failed.  Badly.  No, make that horrifically.

Herbert Hoover, who Trump is reprising, made exactly the same mistake.  Except when put into practice, the public simply stopped buying.  The economy ground to a halt.  And while the Global Trade Wars of the 1930’s raged, activity on the docks dried-up and the longshore and stevedores were unable to find work.  Including a later heavyweight champion who was unable to get enough regular work in NYC to feed his family.

Americans today have virtually  no recall of who Braddock was, yet his rise to fame was written-up in Wikipedia:

” Braddock was known for his spoiling, counterpunching style, powerful right hand and his iron chin. He had lost several bouts due to chronic hand injuries and was forced to work on the docks and collect social assistance to feed his family during the Great Depression. He made a comeback, and in 1935 he fought Max Baer for the heavyweight title and won. For this unlikely feat he was given the nickname “Cinderella Man” by Damon Runyon. Braddock was managed by Joe Gould….”

At the sunset of the “individualism” that reigned during the lead-in to the Depression, which was leaving by the time the Depression was ending. people changed radically.  Individual sports stars included the likes of Jesse Owens who shined at the German Olympics, thus embarrassing Hitler’s upcoming “super race.”  Or two brothers in baseball, fading from modern memory: Daffy and Dizzy Dean.  But then team sports and a team mood swept America.

There’s a huge turn at hand in America.  The social media me-me’s are about to fail.  With their decline will come (says history) a generation of “group action” team players.

Yet, it won’t be without pain.  In coming years, we still have an analog to the Lindberg kidnapping to come (a mega crime) and lots of other adventures.

My point of this somewhat detailed commentary this morning is to point out the fallacy of applying politics and race-baiting to something so far more grand:  A generational change is upon us.  And we are continuing to act out the past in new – yet semi-predictable – ways.

Monday’s like this are useful.  An aware person will look around this morning and declare “ My, there’s a bunch of stupid people around who miss the larger historical context of what’s really upon us:  Yet, in Millennial Makers, in a coming resurgence of Making to a revitalization of Industrial Arts in America, maybe we can make something of this old Country, yet.  

But only if we’re a  team.  Which is where the political demagogues and partisan completely miss the boat.  Community rules in depressions.  Outliers are toast.

We have a crisis of spirit today along with a simple choice:  Reclaim American Exceptionalism and be Team America again.  Or, we will perish as scattered tribes led by idiots without a clue.

(Feel free to share this widely, on the off chance it will help the outcome we’re pulling for, even if we still have to walk through the Second Depression hell to get there.  That’s still ahead.)

Meantime, Back at the Train Wreck…

All quiet in the baggage car.  No sign of gunmen, but give it time.

The Fed Consumer Debt report will be out Wednesday afternoon. We may see a “leading edge” of decline and people going back to the “old ways” – namely, sitting on their wallets.

Then Friday come producer prices, but again, just a blip, not a huge market mover.

Will the decline of the past week force the EU to move-up plans for their September rate drop?  Maybe – it’s an interesting speculation, though this point in history is not a good one for investors  More applicable “Look up when walking under Wall St. windows…”

A report that Investors fear China may “weaponize” currency in trade fight, may bring two realizations:  One:  Precious metals mean something and Two: Bitcoins are backed by nothing.  Curiously, BTCs were $11,787 which is an astounding misjudgment in our view.

Has anyone besides us mentioned what the Modern Analog to the calling of both Gold and Silver in the Great Depression would be?

You got it:  Outlawing (or calling) Bitcoin and all the cryptos.

You see when the Depression becomes more clear, there will be a bums rush on anything of value before BTCs could go to zero on a regulatory move.  Just thought I’d mention it if you’re a gambler.  Pay for dinner first.

  1. Excellent article today, George. I am sure Mark & Mike will misinterpret it. The dolts won’t see this inside attack of our values until we crumble. Trade war heightens as China devalues their currency. If Trump answers with higher tariffs, the stock market will pay more on the downside, as we see by the futures this morning.

    • The stock market is based on some horrendous valuations, and they have a lot of room to fall and bounce back. Personally, having a decades long history of working with Chinkese, I agree that you have to stomp on them. They honestly view us as idiot barbarians and believe if they can screw other peoples over, it’s their own fault.

      As with George, who knows one of my millenials, they have a lot of promise. My 4 are each hard workers, compassionate, passionate and aware of the 2-party con. Glad I assisted in their construction…

      The gig rconomy affects us all, even boomers. A decade back, when I was forced by some NYC bankers of a certain rabbinic faith to sell my second company for peanuts in my pocket, I had to look for a job.

      Trying to get an interview was impossible due to my age – they never ask age, but they can and do ask when you graduated high school. Trying to even get a human within ‘human resources’ that might consider hiring you is nigh on impossible. The entire process is designed to shunt resumes that do not exactly match without human intervention. So Oilman2 hit the gig economy.

      TBH, there is a LOT more freedom working gig, but you have to work your contacts and need to make more to retain any benefits. We (myself and SWMBO) make it work by her carrying the salary job for the bennies.

      I can hardly imagine going back into ‘cubicle world’ at this point. Contemplating it makes me queasy and feeling trapped, and that’s just imagining. So I am hoping to get SS for a few years in a few years and work our farm full time.

      “No one expects the Inquisition”, and so no one ‘expects the Black Plague’ seems to apply. But we are in better shape to curtail a plague-type pandemic today than in ye olden days.

      Thanx G – good take on the big pic…

      • Don’t need a job to have bennies. Samaritan Ministries is cheaper monthly and covers up to 100 percent. Medishare and Liberty Healthshare are excellent also. Come on. Look into it!!!

  2. George,

    I don’t get how improving the balance of trade reduces the federal deficit. Maybe I need more bean….


    • Very simply: When the balance of trade is negative, it means a country is selling less overseas than it is importing. Think of it like two stores: The USA store sells say $5 to China. the China store sell $10 dollars to the USA store. At some point, all the money will accrue to China since it is making $5 more “per accounting period” than the USA.
      This will mean the US dollars will be devalued (by international markets() reducing USA store purchasing power abroad. To maintain domestic spending, the USA store needs to “make up” the difference which is done by printing up more money.
      It’s the printing that kills in the end. That increases the Federal Deficit.
      The idea of tariffs is to put a thumb on the scale of trade between countries.

      • But the balance of trade hasn’t been positive since God was a kid. And the Chinese company is more than likely making the widgets for an American company.

        I think currency traders care more about the overall strength of a country rather than a simple BOT number.

  3. G – looks like the distraction (s) worked..just like magic! No word/stories about FBI literally Helping “She Who Shall Not Be Named” Delete, “Bleach” Hard Drives, Smash Phones..Nothing.

    Bang, Bang!..Handlers ?? Wheres the Guyz/Girlz with the Scolpolamine filled syringe?? oh yeah it is administered Prior to “voice in head” tech being applied..

    Boomers = 1946- 1960 , was born in 62, refuse Boomer label, truly Offensive to me personally..

    Someone (s) is still making serious misjudgement regards BTC’s..RE: UN-Stoppable Decentralization.

    No name calling – observe where Fiat Currencies go during times of economic unrest/currency controls..Bitcoin, why?

    All global Trade WILL be conducted in Cyrpto’s –
    If you wont/cant see this vision of the future, oh well, I’m sure there is a market some where in the world for well made/3D printed buggy whip..Amish?

    Got Gold?

    • Love being a Boomer, shake shake shake those boomers all day long. Lol, having fun.
      Have to agree with Oilman, just the thought of sitting behind a desk, makes me want to vomit.

    • I agree that these events are a distraction from revelations in the Epstein case, etc. I agree on unstoppable decentralization but correct me if I’m wrong. Isn’t a form of trade that depends on the internet and the electric grid a form of centralization?

  4. Chinese authorities proposed rule changes that would for the first time allow local investors to buy shares of some popular technology companies listed in Hong Kong — including, potentially, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.

    Could be a boom for BABA stock as all these China dollars enter the market.

  5. While I agree with your comment on the shootings that “It’s a poisonous mix of violent video games, social alienation, social media and the need to be noticed” …I disagree with your assessment of Trumps role. HE IS partially responsible. His rhetoric helped fuel the fire. He is an authority that people listen to and mimic….humans that lack their own identity often follow those that do. He is no different than a Movie Star starting a fashion trend that those with a lack of identity want to mimic, or a Trend started by a company or group that everyone must participate in…Humans are lemmings when it comes to unique marketing techniques designed to influence and even control us.

    Trump is a marketer…of Hate…it sells. Read the book…The Loudest Voice In The Room…Or watch the Showtime Series with Russell Crow. Trumps popularity was all by design and taking advantage of the weak and powerless. Trump has slogans like lock her up, send her back, build that wall that people chant…They mimic him, and when he says things enough, those with lesser esteem, vulnerabilities and lack of basic common sense start to hear the hate and then act upon the hate….Trump SAID THE WORDS that were in the manifesto. The person responsible for the shooting took that as permission to move forward with his sick plan. How much more proof do you need than that?

    On trade…you could not be more spot on. This is yet another example though, of the total con job Trump is shoving in our faces. Jobs lost to China or Mexico will never come back. We as consumers don’t want them to. We would not be able to afford our own made in USA products, because of our high wages. In order to increase our standards of living, we need to outsource our goods and even some of our services to acquire those goods and services. That’s not a bad thing. We still need to be the IP behind those goods, the people in charge of their distribution and invention. That in of itself creates a higher quality of job.

    • @ Nark

      YOU are the poster child for any RED FLAG LAWS… YOU are what you constantly address this President as…. “Trump is a marketer…of Hate “……YOU are the HATEFUL ONE….not this president, who by the way, PRAY’s even for you and even me…..and on this paid for site, ONLY you are HATE filled and choose to ‘share it’….with many others here that are able to just IGNORE you comments…I can not….since you base your hateful rhetoric…on confused and less then truthful input….as the saying goes..” garbage in garbage out”…which you emulate like no other insane human that I have had to listen to…BUT ‘I pays may money’ and I are entitled to a reply……….people like you I can not feel any sorrow or understanding for…that is why I need the pray’s of this President to ‘pressure’ God to bless me with his grace ,to allow me to ‘weather’ the constant assault of …EVIL…of which you have embraced….I also will pray for you….even though it will not help you. shed your EVIL demon..but it will help me to refrain from further reading anything you comment about….thanks again george for allowing this misfit to show others what some limitations the human brain is capable of …….

    • Mark, Mark, Mark!!! you really are a poster child for TDS!!! Where were you in blaming all the Democrats and specifically Bernie Sanders for the shootings of the republican Congressmen? No where. Is the Unabomber the soul of the democrat party and what they would secretly like to do to America?

      What about the hate being spewed by you and your ilk about Trump with the slanderous accusations that have no merit and have been disproved. You just spew what the Democrats have dreamed up for the past 3 years. Where has it gotten you? nowhere!

      Mark, you lost and you will lose again. You and the Dems have nothing to offer this country except to hate. Your hate of this country has caused more problems and lost more lives than anything that has happened this past weekend with the crazies that thought shooting up a place makes since. (Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, LA, San Fran)

    • If Trump is a marketer of hate, then you are his biggest customer. I’ve seen more hatred in YOUR words than in anything Trump ever said.

      • I am not a customer of hate. I abhor the people that spew it. I can and will hate those that hate. Trump himself hates those and name calls the people that don’t bow down before him. I am astounded at your blind ignorance.

    • Mark, Of all the comments on this site yours are by far the most hateful. It is always Trumps fault. No one is buying your trash talk. You truly have TDS.

    • Mark, you’re suffering from a severe case of TDS. Please seek help immediately, because your posts are getting tiresome for the rest of us.

      • What is tiresome, is your ignorance on Trumps plan to control the conversation and con you into his “Dr. Evil” rule the world craziness. Remember, this is the guy that said..” I could stand in the middle of 5th Ave and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters” That in of itself is a statement that says he will push the envelope just to get ratings. He is a TV showman. Tell me one thing that Trump has done for you that has made a difference. It’s been 2 and a half years. The tax plan is a disaster…NK and Iran relations are worse off than ever before. The border is and always has been a TV teaser. The back and forth with China will affect us more than it will a very stubborn and patient China. Domestic violence is at an all time high during this presidency. And while the rich are getting richer and more powerful, homelessness is at an all time high as well.

        Trumps promises to bring jobs back to America have fallen way short of his goals. Many of the jobs he “claims” from GM, Ford, Charter, Intel, Lockheed, Wal-Mart and Carrier were already in the works in the Obama administration and were part of their 5 year growth initiatives. In Carriers case, those jobs never materialized. In Alibaba’s case…a partnership he said would bring a massive investment into the US is dead…due to the US-China trade issues. I am at a loss as to why you even support this baboon.

    • And for those not biblical scholars: Luke 12:1. “In the meantime, when an innumerable multitude had gathered together, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, ‘Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.’”

      In another version “12 Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be[a] on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy..”

  6. George

    “It’s a poisonous mix of violent video games, social alienation, social media and the need to be noticed, the inaction by a derelict Congress,”

    I was starting to believe in a Manchurian Candidate type of operation being conducted by the Deep State to bring on gun confiscation. Your theory holds more water and shows that it’s an autonomous set of events that is creating the shooters.

    To stop this madness we would have to become less civilized and punish the surviving shooters by giving them the same pain they gave to their victims. So we have to step backwards as a civilized people into the dark ages. Not a good thing for humanity!

    “OK, off to feed the hydroponic tomatoes…”

    How do you handle the soft bottom problem with tomatoes in a hydroponic system? I mix egg shell pieces into the soil mix to get calcium into the plants.

  7. Biden thought that the Texas shootings occurred in Houston instead of El Paso.
    Well,no one ever said that he was a perfect 10.

  8. George,

    More cutesy wootsy Conservative word games, this time with the definition of the word “blame.” While not legally ‘blameworthy’ of murder conspiracy, Trump never misses an opportunity to fan and legitimize the flames of inflammatory racist talk. And if you don’t think this is powerful, then, as one glaring example, you don’t know your Vietnam history, where the battle for the hearts and minds was far, far more important than the body count.

    Time to man-up and own it, George. And please, how about a little commonsense from the Right at least on the big issues once in awhile. Best, Mike.

    • STFU Mike – Trump didn’t pull the trigger and has never encouraged violence.

      You have moved into an alt.reality where gravity and facts don’t work, only assignment of political labels.

      You may have TDS and you need help.

      We are in a massive social change and you’re missing the boat.

      • :eyes:
        Mike,I guess he told you
        TDS causes brain shut down,blue screen
        poor Mark has it bad also
        CIA is a Trojan horse, and has been doing mind control longer than we have been alive. Mass shooters all have shrinks, who disappear when the MKultra victim has been activated.

      • And….there’s the brown shirt. DT’s supposed hero of the German people during the 1930’s didn’t pull a trigger or encourage violence either yet there he was… Like others in great power, he was smart enough to surround himself with others to do the dirty work. Also remember that not every German became a National Socialist during the Third Reich. Only 7% became full Nazi members, and at the Reich’s peak, only 44% of the German public supported the party. But a majority is a majority. I agree that a massive social change may be afoot. History may be repeating itself.

        Don’t berate customers in public. You give us an open forum; respect our right to respond.

      • There’s JoeM trying to tie Trump to Hitler; thanks but no thanks, seen that little ditty before. Ya’ll are too obvious; yes, that’s from TEXASS.

    • Hunhh?? Battle for hearts and minds ?? whose hearts U be talking Einstein, who’s minds, Muricans ?

      Napalm Cocktails with an Agent Orange aperitif? B52 Carpet Bombing programs won alot of hearts, Phoenix Program – the birth thereof really was instrumental winning over commie and American hearts. Surely U remember “Kill a Commie for Mommie”, Village Mai Lai masacre ..

      Legally “Blameworthy” hunhh – WTF is a matta with U dude?

      When The Truth OFFENDS U – U got way bigger issues/problems than inflammatory racist talk..

      Beware the Silent Majority – kicked Ur ass once, coming back for another round soonly.

    • Mikey – you want a body count? How about all the REAL U.S. citizens that have been “neutralized” by the illegals that the dim-o- tw*ts have let into the country because no one in their right mind would vote demoncrat any more? RINOs fall into that despicable category, too. If they ever connect the alphabet agencies and politicians to these regularly scheduled mass shootings there’s going to be Hell to pay. They’ll never confiscate enough ARs and other semi-autos before they’d all have to go into hiding.

  9. “the loud-mouth, in-your-face, militants in Congress”

    Not the Congress people i keep voting for over and over, must be the people you keep voting for over and over. :)

    At least we got the world with the “lesser of two evils”.

  10. Tienanmen Square happened in 1989. Thirty years is a generation. Like clockwork, Hong Kong is reversing the Tienanmen Square decision.

  11. Whose is paying forthe Trump tariffs? China of course, not us. Of course it will hurt the farmers & others doing business with China, but our economy can withstand this tariff war much better than the Chinese economy. China still needs to import iron ore, oil, food, etc to keep it afloat.

    As the market crashes, so will it rise. Nobody thought the market would explode upward on Christmas Eve 2018. URE INDEX 30,000 is still the plan.

    PS: I think the reason Mark hates Trump is because his Real Estate biz hit the skids, & Trump promised success. That is the only reason I can see for Mark going Off the Trump deepend.

  12. Yes, crazy stuff hits near the top (right before the drop – which Elliot wave financial forecast said the top would be around 27200 this year):

    All part of the ‘socionomic theory of negative social mood’ (in other words, our collective subconscious has crashed the market).

    Your own post, G, but the pipe bomb mailer is getting 20 yrs (see below), and he put only Trump stickers on his van, no Dem stickers

    BTW, Chicago also hit it’s highest weekend shooting total for the year…yet so widely ignored by the mainstream….(hint: do Black Lives Matter?)

  13. American kids have been systematically screwed for decades, and the number of them lashing out violently seems to be on the uptick, although some of that may be an artifact of MSM coverage. In praise of the UrbanSurvival readers, no one mouthed off about false flags, as far as I could tell. These mass shootings are all too real, and denying that reality is not a sign of good mental hygiene. The ugly truth is that we are losing the kids to fringe groups and manipulators of all sort, and the violence will only get worse without all the partisan stooge lawyers making some commitments to provide opportunities and health services to young Americans, instead of giving their jobs and their benefits away to foreign nationals to solicit payola and illegal votes. The lawyers are getting obscenely rich, and the kids are disenfranchised.
    Blaming guns for alienation and radicalization of young Americans is partisan horses__t. Islam does not have a monopoly on manipulating and radicalizing youth. All the partisan gangs are exploiting these incidents, and none have real solutions, like providing well-paying jobs with health services (including mental health services) to young Americans. Many years ago, a foreign national professional whom I worked with and respected told me that the American kids are out on their own and self-directed long before their counterparts in so-called less developed nations. We are throwing our young men and women under a global bus, if not a global train, and there will have to be changes made, or the carnage may be coming to a place near you. At the exploitation of youth, the D’s, the R’s, the corporate brown shirts and the fringe parties are all equally skilled, and equally guilty. I still support the NRA, and I believe that the situation would be far worse without them. Good jobs and hope for the future are solutions. Mental health services are the safety net. We already have laws against mass murder. Making more punitive laws, banning this or that, and partisan finger-pointing will solve nothing. And yes Mark, DJT shares blame with all the other partisans, but to say he is singularly guilty is an indication of that same radicalization which is devouring our young people. How are any of you going to live with yourselves if you find out that some young man read some of your putrid hate talk posted publicly, then picked up a gun and went on a rampage?

Only issue is imf wanting new currency based on plant capacity , which we exported.

  15. Great Analysis by Mike Adams at Natural News:

    I read the shortened version (from the New Zealand’s massacre) El Paso’s manifesto, and I don’t believe that kid wrote it. No way. If he hated illegals so badly, why did he have to go to an American city and kill Americans shopping at Walmart; Dallas-Ft. Worth, aka, the Metroplex is full of illegals.

    Also, the El Paso news station is on video reporting the massacre BEFORE it happened. Um, hmm.

    People really should be going to and see what is cooking over there; great commentary on this diabolical push.

    Tidbits: #1) There is an Exodus out of California; Uhaul has to charge premiums or downright deny requests to take their product from California to anywhere USA; not enough rentals going back. BIG NEWS. #2) Illegals were used to build prisons all over 5 states in the United States. Prisons that now stand empty, waiting for what? They used illegals to keep it quiet. #3) Already people in the USA are being offered a chip in their wrist instead of renewing their Driver’s Licenses; so they can just swipe the wrist to get on planes, etc.

    • The shooting in El Paso happened. Leave the families of the victims alone. Stop making apologies for mass murderers. There are always inconsistencies in the evidence. Don’t put it past newsmen and conspiracy buffs to post edited material including tampered time stamps. If there were other shooters or influencers involved, the lawmen will find them and deal with them. The conspiracy speculation, intimidation of victim’s families, and harrassment of first responders and lawmen associated with these incidents is unamerican crazy. Get a life.

      • Our plaque on the wall says “Never Trush the Web. Trust only credible sources.”

        What are credible sources?

        WebMd is pretty good, and, too, along with and to an extent any of the major USGov sites.

        But sites that contribute only “shock stories” about shooters who “eat scabs and pick & eat” their nose remnants? You have to be an idiot not to apply filtering.

        You’re exact right on the “leave them be” but with one caveat: Those sitting in the Halls of Power should realize that open borders are NOT a Nation-Unifying agenda. Assisted suicide is the more likely…

      • Feel free to throw brickbats at “leaders”, always. Especially ones who make public statements about national tragedies and get the names of the affected communities wrong.
        Tidbits – that manifesto is of no importance, just as is all the rest of the fabricated web “evidence”. You don’t know squat, nor does anyone else outside the small circle of lawmen who are investigating. Get a life.
        G____- lunatic vigilanteism is endemic in Texas. Stir in madness and a life without any real future and you start seeing dead people. In this case, the local investigators have a live perp to work on. As to whether the investigators will find anything but random madness remains to be seen.

      • Where did I make apologies for mass murderers? I don’t put it past our own mainstream media to post lies, which they do, regularly. The rest of what you wrote: “The conspiracy speculation, intimidation of victim’s families, and harrassment of first responders and lawmen associated with these incidents is unamerican crazy. Get a life.” That’s a nice piece of BS right there. I, for one, want to use my critical thinking skills and not my MSM facts to make decisions and determinations. No, I don’t trust the ‘lawmen’ either as they can be political stooges. Did you listen to Mike from Natural News or are you just closing your mind? Actually, the Manifesto IS of real importance, especially since A) the kid didn’t write it, and B) he didn’t upload it. Which means it is manufactured to CAUSE a RESULT. So, who is spewing crazy and shutting down serious critical thinking questions? And you say: “lunatic vigilanteism” Yeah, throw all Texans in your same bucket. It’s you who need to GET A LIFE.

        Could you elaborate on what you meant by the statement above, because apparently it means something different to me than it does to you.

        I’m really not seeing critical thinking in this. You spend a lot of time looking at fabricated BS online and on MSM, and then OMG, you find fabricated BS. What matters is the evidence that goes to the Grand Jury, and then into the courtroom. I hope they keep the trial in El Paso, ’cause I wouldn’t want to be in the jury pool for this one.
