After a useless debate last night, both political parties are ready to sacrifice America for political ends, seems to us.
And there is a legit need for a stimulus bill before voting: Officials Call for Quick Stimulus Deal to Forestall Lackluster U.S. Economic Recovery.
Call all they want… we don’t see it. Politics over People rides again. And after? Well…
America’s Structural Crisis
First, the economic situation is NOT sustainable. Stocks are going up (Futures +90) based on the government’s Making Up Money (MUM) to keeping the government’s books in order. Yes – that’s right – the same half-wit economic principle that took down Zimbabwe. Touted by libs here.
People need to believe in money as a storehouse of value or they will blow through it and fail to save for the future. Good for Bitcoin, though: $12,956 at click time.
How much are we “Making up?”
Breathtaking, ain’t it?
Normalcy Delusions Persist: Most people can see this as the Boom of Collapse – yet look at the facts. If M2 was at the same levels as year-ago – then more honest money – would price things. The S&P 500 would be around 2,250. Not the 3,455 showing in early futures.
If you make everyone in the world a millionaire, the meaning of money goes “Poof!”
For now, it’s hidden in plain sight: Next problem for the Fed will be “managing the wheelbarrows.”
There myth of “modern monetary theory” is you can “make up wealth.” Sorry…try the galaxy next door.
In the meantime, says Zerohedge “Global Markets Rise Despite Fading Odds Of Stimulus Deal.” Side of crack with that?
Trump Blows It – Hail Harris
Making Up Money will be one of the highlights of the Harris administration. As we figure it, short-term the Biden-Harris admin will continue to play the racial and social divide to “keep people under control.”
Here’s what Trump blew in the useless excuse of a “debate” last night:
- Trump failed to look at the camera and talk to voters mano y. Point: Biden.
- Trump didn’t charge...he defended. Bad strategy. Example 1) He could have called Hunter a “Bagman” and cast Biden as a crime family boss. Failed. 2) He didn’t say (real simply) “Open borders will steal your retirement…” (Which is true – illegals will flood in for the dole which the Harris Commisariat will ensure. Point: Biden.
- Trump’s sentence structure was “him-centric” not “Ameri-centric.” Point: Biden.
- Trump failed to announce impeachment hearings in the Senate – which could be called because of Hunter (and the balance of family) funneling money to “our guy.” AYFKM?
- Trump failed to adequately point out the economics of this election. The Roaring Market and such. Dems set the narrative. Weak-minded rpeublicans fell for it. But cornerstone issues like economics can’t come up because the market rally is phony: based on simply making up money and praying the crash doesn’t come until after Nov. 3 – by both sides.
Summary: BARRing a major DoJ intervention (massive corruption indictment which you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for) last night put the nails in the cross of Trump.
We give Joe Biden a year tops before health issues will “Amendment 25 him.” We call it the Kam-Slam. And when that happens (you’re gonna cry to hear this, but we figure it’s that plan): Bernie Sanders is wheeled out into a leadership role. Pokahauntus Warren and other activists are jammed onto an expanded/packed U.S. Supreme Court…oh, God. What a mess, huh?
In other words, the Commies who couldn’t win on merit will take over by deceit after the Kam-Slam and the AOC Plus 3 gang become even more “liberty viper” successors to Nasty Nancy. Take that to the bank.
Should be an interesting collapse, fellow
The curious context is how Trump – reprising the role of Hoover – will hand an under-equipped set of Roosevelt-like “socialist Lite’s” the reins before the Crash this historical cycle. It’s really cool to watch if you can keep from getting wrapped around the “emotional hot button issues” (race, abortion, illegals, yada, yada…)
Who Beat Mitch?
Speaking of Mob Family Tactics, this sure spikes with me as a question o9n reading reports about Mitch McConnell having bruises all over.
When we sized up the story McConnell claims ‘no concern’ after photos show his hand bandaged, discolored, and McConnell’s lame-ass claim he has no health issues, we went back to our cop-shop beat days.
Did someone lay a whuppin on Mitch? Looked like too many bruises for a fall. Being a seasoned citizen myself, I can tell you, you’d need to work to have that much bruising from a fall. Well, unless there are hardwood or concrete stairs involved.
Still…inquiring minds are wondering. A blackjack lobbying effort?
Speaking of Medical Mysteries…
Great article in on the SF Gate site today about an American nuclear researchers – back in 1953 – by the name of William Curtis Twitchell.
The “cover story” was that he was a genius, but had been diagnosed with a malignancy. Because he knew so much, he was confined to a specially built ward at The Presidio’s hospital. Died a year later.
But there’s a twist – there’s a story about someone in this same period turning invisible on public transit.
Yeah…go read the story – it’s a Marvel if you follow. Invisible Man #1???
But when did the government ever spend what would be north of a million bucks in today’s money and post a guard?
(It’s a fine example of why we don’t buy the McConnell story, either. Too many answers that fit…but slightly ya-sag like, out of place. Just enough so most folks won’t notice. Like the weather balloon at Roswell…that kind of PR coverup. Who remembers there were two crash sites, right?)
Dust Bowl’s Knocking
Plan on Dustbowl ’21: We give a nod to the fires out west, again: Colorado East Troublesome Fire Grows To 170,000 Acres, Forces Evacuations Across Towns.
As a “city slicker” it’s just a number. But, out here on the Rural Reservation we do the conversion to 265 square miles…and that’s pretty freakin big (PFB).
It’s a heads-up for us, too. We will be changing out our back-up water this weekend. Because the winter forecast from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center looks like shit:
Again – last night’s attention to detail deficit festival focused on the same old political BS we hear non-stop. Where is the “look-ahead” planning by government? Where are the watermakers along the SoCal coastline? Where are the new aquaducts?
Whether you look at Mars (joking?) – or the remnants of Rome – water matters along with food. And with a drought picture that looks like this:
How about a good old-fashioned collectivization? It’s what socialists do. But, only for the public good, you understand…
Next, Toss In CV-19…
Election news Bait & Switch now that the Hunter Biden story has been verified by (non democrats). So where can the media pivot?
Here’s a hint for you: Coronavirus case increase sets new U.S. record, rising by over 77K in one day.
Near as we can figure it, the MSM will try to drown out “Lock ’em Up” with “Lock ’em down…”
We’ve penciled in 296,000 dead in the US – maybe 300,000 by Thanksgiving, though not one of them at the hand of Donald Trump.
When you go back to March and look at some of the “old hands” in the news business (like Bill O’Reilly here), you see a pattern emerge:
But, like a friend who went on to teach at Georgetown Law schooled me: “The first victim of any courtroom proceeding is Truth.” The axiom also fits American politics like a glove.
You know your personal car is toast, right? That business model is being replaced by runaway climate hysterial (which China and Europe skate on emission levels).
And that will be a pretext to downscale America into new public transit – which Uber and Lyft are in position to leverage as self-driving cars come along.
On? Did you see So-called ‘Full Self-Driving’ can control a car on city streets?
Cars with these features will not be generally affordable (and then there’s insurance, lol). So, instead, we end up in the kind of place depicted in the movie Minority Report. Just be patient. It’s coming. You car is going.
That’s why we (still) drive a now 15-year old Lexus. No where to go in lockdowns, though, so why piss away money on a new ride?

An Odd Growth Fail
I’ve never understood why people don’t just by seeds, but here’s a story in Marijuana Business Daily to put in your… “L.A. opens licensing round amid waning interest among cannabis entrepreneurs.”
With all that time saved not commuting, maybe people can grow at home? Covid Kush a strain yet?
The War to Come
As China is moving military gear opposite Taiwan reading for their “reunification war” (they’ll wait for a weaker Biden to take office), China backs it’s move with this: Russia-China Military Alliance ‘Quite Possible,’ Putin Says.
Which would put Russia in China’s corner, which would then pressure Europe and…well, what do you think the “Best President Money Can Buy” will do?
Here’s a hint on our take: Carlsbad. (cave. need another latte?)
Redefining “thought modalities” on Peoplenomics tomorrow morning.
And Sunday – long (like 4,000 words long) – on how the home audiophile can really dial in their listening experience.
And we beat the rain with a four-hour leaf blowing adventure Thursday. Within an hour, mostly covered back up, again. Like taxes, yard work never stops, either.
Write when you get rich, (When you do, though, think of me as “our guy” and send half, lol)…
