Ure Baited and Switched
You’ve been had: Government claims extraordinary powers due to a virus, someone with empty rallies wins the White House, and the Stock Market soars to records while a million people in hospitality have hit the bricks.
And you’re still not seeing it yet?
Buddy, you’ve been “hoodwinked.” Sold a bill of goods. Taken the wrong pill. Stooged and had….
Hiding a Greater Depression
We have only to consider a few facts to achieve economic perspective.
Foremost is how much money the Fed has just “made up” out of thin air in the past year: They’re printing like mad with a “soak-you-later” program called the National Debt.
The other number – people actually working presently – is also sobering:
Move over! Guy with the calculator!
149,732,000 working now. 158, 536,000 working this time a year ago. Round off: 9-million people not working.
So, we ponder, how does the market just hit all-time highs?
Could it be we are in the Bubble of a Lifetime and shit hits the fan in 2021? Frankly, not a bad thing to plan on.
For now, the happy-talk is the Fed will keep it all nice and papered-over. After all with either 46.3% more cash (basis M1) or 24.4% more cash and savings (basis M2), surely no one will notice, right?
The Producer Price Index for final demand advanced 0.1 percent in November, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Final demand prices rose 0.3 percent in October and 0.4 percent in September. (See table A.) On an unadjusted basis, the final
demand index increased 0.8 percent for the 12 months ended in November, the largest advance since moving up 1.1 percent for the 12 months ended in February.
In November, the rise in the final demand index can be traced to a 0.4-percent increase in prices for final demand goods. The index for final demand services was unchanged.
The index for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services advanced 0.1 percent in November, the seventh consecutive increase. For the 12 months ended in November, prices for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services moved up 0.9 percent, the largest rise since a
1.0-percent increase for the 12 months ended in March.”
Inflation lurks – shark like. Sharking the Dow down 180- in the pre-open.
Piper’s At the Door, Now
You may not notice, but a couple of keyword searches for personally impacting words will shine some light on things: Ready?
- Evict: Wave of evictions feared as eviction moratorium set to expire. And Up to 40 million Americans face eviction by the end of 2020.
- Benefits: Jobless Benefits Saved Them, Until States Wanted the Money Back.
- Stimulus checks? Who told you the a-holes on the Hill won’t do shit until slow Joe takes office? Futures tumble as stimulus doubts resurface.
- Charity: Gone political – This Christian charity website has morphed into a crowdfunder (for Trump).
With regular people losing “faith in the system” (duh!), where’s the bait and where’s the switch? It’s in the phony monetization’s designed to shame you off-balance:
- 4 Ways to Cultivate Inclusion and Compassion In the Workplace.
- 2020 Olympics: Aussies left reeling by stunning revelations of body-shaming, bullying in women’s hockey (ISYN…this gets the SJW types all wrapped around the axle.
- ‘You’re Expected To Look Your Best At All Times’, Fardeen Khan On Experiencing Body-Shaming. See how shaming is the new marketing tool?
You just keep on p0sting that free content to FB and Twits – and keep making the rich-richer. (God people are stupid on how monetizing sheep works!)
[I don’t know who’s more stupid: antifa and SJW types driving traffic to the rich-boy sites (trying to foment “revolution” lol) or the bitcoin miners using 7-nuke plants worth of power to make up bullshit numbers and pretend its money… hmmm…tough call there.]
We can’t cure the hopeless joiners and followers. But stay the f*ck out of our way. We try not to waste time on nickel and dime monetization crap. The BIG swindles – the ones out of the District of Corruption – yeah…the high-level stuff. If everyone had equal opportunity to benefit from equal work…be a hell of a fine country again.
But that dear Citizen, just can’t be allowed.
Texas Get’s It Wrong
The old saying about elections (“If they mattered, they wouldn’t let us vote...”) is ever-more clear as the true believers on the right think the Supremes will sing for Trump. NFW.
Unfortunately for Trump, States Urge Supreme Court to Declare Election Over, Reject Texas Bid.
And they’re right: One State doesn’t have standing to tell another State what to do inside their own borders. Look: If residents of one state want to be stupid, hold crooked elections, that’s up to people stupid-enough to live in [whatever state].
The good news here in the Lone Star? Should Texas be its own nation again? Secession talk returns with proposed Texas Independence Referendum Act. Care to guess which way we’d vote on that? At a minimum we could be five states under the treaty, could we not? Maybe Soros could send money, lol. Are you all in, Bubba George?
“The new boss the same as the ol boss…” As the Chicago Trib poignantly asks this morning in a “Column: Take the great leap, Joe: Hunter or Rep. Eric Swalwell for China ambassador?” Why, Fang Fang, we do declare. America still has the best politicians money can buy…
And you notice how the International Community is snuggling up to Joe? (Do they have soft hair, too???) “Ukraine police close Biden probe initiated by ousted prosecutor.” (Ousted by Joe’s reach.)
Translation for the sleeping sheeping: Ukraine’s about to get a shitload of dough from the Buy’ed em’s. Ewe Watch. Sure, go ahead, toss in Taiwan, too. Speaking of…
Care to guess who else is waiting for Joe to “take a sit?” Taiwan is rightfully worried as hell. Locking down their home front: Leading pro-China news channel in Taiwan ends broadcasts. And beefing up their defense: “Taiwan Commissions New Coast Guard Ships to Bolster Defences.
And feeding our epicanthal targeting worries, did you see, speaking of Covid-19: Virus ‘success’ Taiwan to keep restrictions despite vaccine. Public health or spared by epicanthal engineering, huh?
China’s looking at Taiwan as a sitting duck and saying so: China’s PLA ‘Ready’ for Taiwan Resistance After Latest U.S. Arms Sales.
Tick tock, war’s coming. Sudetenwan (or was it Taideten) Land?
Got to end a depression somehow…flash-bangs all ’round? It has worked before…
Cheerily into the Weak End…
No typing speed requirement for captive regulators? FDA ‘rapidly working to finalize’ Pfizer coronavirus vaccine approval. (Wanna bet there are some resumes going around in background? Being a captive regulator issuch a very profitable deal…)
Is it legal to scream “Climate!” in an empty theater? Winter system impacts the Midwest, as Northeast could see its first snowstorm next week.
They missed our house: US consumers would rather give up alcohol than food delivery: survey.
Follow-up to my “well-placed” source with the Indiana state park story from Thursday:
“I need to add something to my experience at the state park the other day. that night both my cell phone and computer lost their history’s and my car radio stopped working. The car radio has been acting strange. I can not get it to come on and without me touching it will turn on and just be on one channel and one audio level and then it shuts off. I have fixed hundreds of AV devices. I used to do that for a living. Never seen anything like. I just pulled it out, it was driving me crazy.
Also I mentioned the helicopters. Well I am in another state and this morning two military olive colored large helicopter’s went over followed a few minutes later by two white helicopters of the same type.
By themselves I would not think anything of it but I also need to add this. when I was at the state park in Indiana these black SUV’s were driving around in the park. Then the ranger came to my door and asked if I had heard or seen anything the night before.
When I was leaving the park I went though the town of Liberty and I passed a restaurant and there were three of those black SUV’s and a white one. The white one had State Police emblem on the side. This was not about somebody poaching etc.
I used to be an analyst for the Defense Intelligence Agency and connecting dots was what I did. So if there were lets say outsiders in country and they wanted to keep a low profile what would be a better way than to stay in state parks.
Adding a lot of other dots, which includes military movements worldwide, strange earth phenomena, Covid, and other similar events I would say something is in the mix. Here is the part that may be frustrating, when I was an analyst for the DIA I would start my day reading the CIA daily bulletin. Often I would be shocked by something and expect to see it in the news that night. Sometimes there would be what was a concocted cover story. It used to bother my wife because I would be stressed out about it but I could not tell her a thing. another quick mention, is that technology that our military plays with does not become public (if ever) for 10-15 years. I know this.
I am getting the Lost in Space Danger danger feeling. there is more I could share but not online.
We’ve come across a lot of it in our reporting over the years. And – from a different source – we know lots about “zero-flight time” (faster-than-light) communications. Useful stuff conceptually if you happen to be hacking space-time as a hobby. Which we are while waiting for a shipment of 30-lasers to come in from China.
Meantime, watching the videos out of the California IR cam site mentioned Thursday.
If you’d like to help…
Whip open a bible and go to the discussion in Exodus of the Lampstand that was adjacent to the Ark of the Covenant. Then, figure out how large a “light enclosure” could be created using the light-beams from the Lamp of the Ark.
Send along a sketch of how to arrange those 22 lights into a “containment” virtual space with edge-bounding by the lasers. Yeah….that’d be useful.
