My Financial Advice

I don’t know how many of you are young out there, but I am going to give you some advice that’s going to make you rich.

I want you to become filthy stinking rich at an age where you can enjoy it.

I don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I made.

With that stated, I don’t want you to become so rich so that you can dominate other people, nor do I want you to become so rich that you quit your job and become lazy good for nothings.

I want you to become rich so that you can still work but with a little ease of mind.

In your life, you will have multiple chances to become wealthy.

Now, of course, I’m talking about you investing in other peoples ideas.

When it comes to yourself, of course you always have the opportunity to become wealthy.

In this article I’m talking about you putting otherwise idle money to good use.

In the mid 1980s, when I was young, I invested a sizable amount of money in Apple computer.

I invested in Apple computer because I used Apple computer. I knew that the Macintosh was a versatile computer, so I knew it was going places.

Alas, I sold the stock because I needed the money to accomplish other things in my life.

In retrospect, that was a mistake.

Of course, this was well before the iPhone was invented, so one could argue that no one could predict that Steve Jobs would return to the company that he helped found and turn it into a megagiant.

If I had kept my Apple stock, I would’ve been fabulously wealthy.

Likewise with Las Vegas Sands.

Around the time of the 2008 collapse I was investing in the stock market. At that time I still believed in the Great Casino on Wall Street. This was before the stock market became completely rigged. In those days the stock market was only halfway rigged. Ha ha.

Even though the stock market was bottoming out, and even though Las Vegas Sands was plummeting, I was buying.

I didn’t buy at the low which was $1.42 a share, but I came close. My last purchase was at $1.47 a share.

I had a lot of shares in Las Vegas Sands, so when it rose in value, which I knew it would, I made a pretty fair penny.

I knew that the experts were wrong on Las Vegas Sands because I would frequently travel to Las Vegas and stay at the Venetian.

You might say it was my home away from home.

While the pundits were down on Las Vegas Sands I could see that people were still flooding into the casino.

Plus, I liked the style of its owner Sheldon Adelson. Adelson wasn’t just investing in Las Vegas; he was one of the first Las Vegas hoteliers to invest in Macau, where he was making a fortune.

Sheldon Adelson was the funniest CEO you’d ever want to hear on a conference call.

If he hadn’t been a hotelier, he probably would’ve been a comedian.

So I bet on Sheldon Adelson, and I bet with my eyes, what was before me.

And I did will.

Stick to what you know when making an investment, and stick to what you can see before your eyes.

When you have to choose between the pundits and what is before your eyes, stick to what you can see before your eyes unless there is some compelling reason not to.

In both Apple Computer and Las Vegas Sands, I was investing in things that I used, things that I knew, things that I could check on.

You can do the same in your investing.

If you don’t believe in the product, if you don’t use the product, there’s a good chance that you won’t make a lot of money on it.

It’s that belief in the product that allows you to stick with it when others are against it.

That would be my main advice to you.

Along with that advice I now offer you the advice I did not follow at the time.

Set it and forget it.

Once you make your choice, stick with it to completion.

Don’t sell it.

Unless you have some compelling reason to sell it, don’t sell it.

Leave it alone. Let it grow.

This is what I want you to do.

This is the advice that will make you rich.

Now, I don’t advise that you bet the entire ranch on one stock.

Of course, you should diversify.

Of course, you should bet no more than you can afford to lose.

But if you have made a reasonable bet, money you can afford to lose, set it and forget it.

Now, this is the advice I am currently going to follow through on for cryptocurrency.

I can’t tell you why I believe in cryptocurrency. It’s just a feeling that I have.

I believe that cryptocurrency will eventually become what the gold rush was to many in the 1800s.

Even though the elites are beating down Bitcoin, there will always be a need for Bitcoin.

Bitcoin to me is nothing more than a registry of stored value where we agree not to dilute that value by printing up money.

As long as the elites print up money, Bitcoin will go up in value.

Bitcoin will have to survive because the elites will need Bitcoin also.

There will be too many elites who will see the value of Bitcoin.

When push comes to shove, the elites will have to adopt Bitcoin. They will have no other choice. There are too many advantages of Bitcoin over gold.

The same can be said for other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum.

Now, it may come to pass that Ethereum will not be used in the manner that Bitcoin is used.

The block chain is a powerful tool that can be used in so many areas of endeavor. It may come to pass one day that healthcare records and vaccine records may be stored on the block chain.

Ethereum may well be a carrier for the healthcare industry. In this manner cryptocurrencies, initially designed to store value of money, may be used to store value of other types.

There is no stopping this.

Decentralizing the storage of records over thousands if not hundreds of thousands of servers is far better than centralizing our storage of records on one or two massive servers.

This is one of the great technological innovations that has yet to be fully recognized by our collective consciousness.

As such, it is a great opportunity for young people to invest in.

Of course, the powers that be will always play their tricks.

But this is one game where do you still have a fighting chance.

When you do invest, as I am investing right now, put in an amount of money that you can afford to lose and then walk away from it.

Now, if you don’t believe in it, don’t invest.

But if you do believe in it, invest and walk away.

Do not check the value or the price of your investment every day.

Go live your life.

Sincerely,

The Wrong Brand of Globalism

The brand of globalism that our elites practice is wrong.

It’s wrong for us, and it’s wrong for the elites.

Of course, the elites can’t see that because they are morally blind. Money has a way of doing that.

The elites believe in an imperialist version of globalism. They see the United States and their allies in the West as the executives to the world, and they see the people in Haiti and Southeast Asia as the worker bees who will work for peanuts to make finished goods for citizens in the West.

Naturally, of course, the lion’s share of the profits will go to the rich in their walled off developments across the United States and in particular Martha’s Vineyard.

The elites and their media lackeys justify their exploitation of these have-not nations as the price they pay for “we the enlightened” bringing democracy to their otherwise destitute nations.

In reality though, we in the West make these nations destitute.

Our apparel companies like Levi’s and Nike pay workers 5 to $10 a day to make our jeans and shoes. Our agricultural companies like Cargill and ADM dump their cheap corn and rice into the exploited nations thus destroying their local agriculture.

The dictators that our elites prop up in those exploited nations through the CIA, their thug agency, ensure that this economic model is possible.

This is the only possible way for the elites to gain unbridled wealth. They wouldn’t be able to do so if they were making an honest buck.

This is how the wealthy in Britain got so wealthy in centuries past.

Those fabulous mansions that the British aristocracy lived in were paid for by the sweat of the workers in the slave plantations that Britain ran around the globe.

When the British weren’t subjugating countries like India and China, they were running slave plantations in Guyana, Jamaica and Fiji.

That’s why you can meet people of Indian extraction who come from Guyana and Fiji. The British elite tricked illiterate Hindu into becoming indentured servants via a thumbprint signature.

When you watch films like Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey, and you see the fabulous mansions that Mr. Darcy and Lord Grantham owned, you are looking at stolen wealth.

Our elites here in the United States are impressed by that.

They seek to emulate the British.

But we are not British. We are Americans.

Moreover we should not be British.

We have a common language, English, but that’s it.

Our ancestors didn’t live in mansions Like those of the Lord Grantham and Mr. Darcy; on the contrary, our ancestors lived in work houses like those depicted in Oliver Twist.

This is all the more reason to walk away from Britain’s brand of imperialism.

It is Britain’s brand of imperialism that serves as the model for our modern day globalism.

It’s a wrong model. It’s a wrong vision.

The proper brand of globalism involves a sharing of wealth and productivity.

Each nation should make within reason 80% of its own goods for its own people.

In this manner, every nation can be a winner.

In the current model, exploited nations are used as slave labor camps for the rich who live on Martha’s Vineyard.

Exploited nations also serve as sanctuaries for wealthy corporations to avoid environmental and financial scrutiny.

Exploited nations also serve as pop-off valves to keep wages low in western nations.

The result is the lesser quality of life for citizens in both the exploited and exploiter nations.

The only people who win are the rich.

Free trade is really free imperialism.

It’s the wrong brand of globalism.

When we help others, we help ourselves.

When we help the people of Haiti and Southeast Asia become more prosperous, we become more prosperous.

Paradoxically our rich will live a more rewarding life. But they are too blind to see this.

Obsession with money has created this moral blindness.

They have become a cancer cell practicing the wrong brand of globalism.

Why Bitcoin Crashed

Do you understand why Bitcoin has crashed and why it is where it is?

Do you understand why Bitcoin may go down a bit further?

It’s important that you do, because having this information will enable you to fully understand our elites and what kind of people they are.

Pollyannas go no further.

It is of course the elites who have crashed Bitcoin and kept it where it is – foundering haplessly like a clueless dolt in a swimming pool.

If it’s one thing the elites cannot stand, cannot tolerate, it is when regular people, plebes, make a bundle of money when they do not.

It keeps them up at night.

It’s like a hot knife in their guts.

They don’t like missing the boat, and they don’t like the fact that you’re on it and they’re not.

That’s not the way life is supposed to work.

They are supposed to be the winners.

You see, our elites have been trained and indoctrinated, just like you, to believe that they are the best and the brightest, the smartest guys in the room.

So when upstarts like you, common swill, make money and a lot of it, it upends the false value system that they believe in.

They can’t have that.

Their brains physically cannot tolerate that pain.

So to alleviate that pain, they have crashed Bitcoin so that they can buy it cheaper in order to jack it up.

They did this through their various allies in the media and the business world.

From out of the woodwork, their puppets and officers came forward to denounce Bitcoin. All the members of the orchestra were there. You know their names and where they went to school.

All they had to do was create a lack of confidence in Bitcoin.

They presented Bitcoin as a threat to the environment. Really? How about the threat that Fortune magazine presents to the environment? What’s the carbon cost in chopping down all those trees and making all that ink? The same can be said for all the other rags the Empire puts out. Should we shut down the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and The Economist?

The lack of confidence that the elites created was false and bogus; but no matter, they did it.

If they have to, the elites will kill you.

You the plebes cannot be seen as smarter than they.

For them it is a fate worse than death.

That is why Bitcoin has crashed.

Is important for you to know this to understand the ruthlessness and the commitment of our elites.

They are totally immoral people.

They are not like you.

They couldn’t care less about the beautiful philosophy behind Bitcoin.

What they care about is money, profits, and power.

In spite of this, they can be beaten.

They have flaws, and me talking about them will not alter that reality.

They are who they are, and we are who we are.

While the elites have incredible biological smarts, but no more on average than you the plebes, they are morally dumb.

They are also incredibly lazy and careless.

That’s why they create so many calamities in the world.

They’re just like Tom and Daisy Buchanan, leaving chaos in their wake.

If we look at the following mathematical formula, this makes sense.

Effectiveness = Smarts x Moral Quotient x Diligence x Technology

What saves us is the moral stupidity of our elites.

Plus their laziness.

Of course that laziness will temporarily correct itself when plebes move across the finish line in first place.

We saw this in the Brexit referendum in the UK just a few years ago. We are seeing that in Bitcoin today.

It’s the story of the tortoise and the hare, except in this story, the hare gets to wake up and move the finish line so that he can win the game.

That is what we see in Bitcoin today. The elites have woken up and moved the finish line so that they can win.

King Louis has spotted a potential rival and chosen to confiscate his estate.

Just like that.

They can do it, they will do it.

Indeed, they have done it.

Welcome to reality, Pollyanna.

All that talk about building a better mousetrap, the cream rising to the top, you too can be President – all of that is a myth, a vapor and a dream.

Trade Imbalance

I’m trying to understand trade imbalance in a way that’s meaningful to me.

Let’s begin with an article that Thomas Sowell wrote many years ago in which he pointed out the meaninglessness of a trade imbalance.

In his article he pointed out that he had a net trade imbalance with his grocery store. For decades he had been buying goods from the supermarket, and yet the supermarket had never once bought any goods from him.

His point was: Trade imbalance? So what?

I’m not sure about that, but it’s a good starting point. Let’s run with this.

Let’s create a hypothetical country call the United States being run by King Louis.

During the reign of King Louis of France, that fat fuck didn’t do a damn thing except eat grapes, drink wine, fuck women and figure out ways to loot other countries.

The people in his country made everything for him. He didn’t do anything himself. He rewarded them with shit wages, dimes.

In essence he carried on a trade imbalance with his people.

He got away with it through force.

In many respects, this is what the United States and our King Louises do today. We sit back like a fat fuck, watch Hollywood movies, drink wine, go to nice restaurants, fuck, and figure out ways to fight wars while other people do all the heavy lifting for us.

We then pay many of these exploited countries shit wages.

We get away with it through force.

When King Louis of France needed extra money he would tax the citizens but that would make life worse for them. They would get angry. So he would go to war or colonize in order to take things from other people.

When the King Louises of the United States need extra money they do pretty much the same thing. But they also print up notes, do some accounting tricks, then use other countries as borrowers. It’s an IOU of sorts, a promise to pay.

But of course, we don’t plan on paying any of that money back. It never gets paid.

It never gets paid because we are King Louis. We are the biggest motherfucker around.

It’s like Sean Penn stated in the movie Casualties of War: Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because I’m the biggest motherfucker in the valley.

This is how the United States operates today.

This is how Louis of France operated.

And what happened to King Louis XVI?

That’s right.

In time the people get wise and say: “We’ve had enough. We are doing all the heavy lifting, and you’re sitting back doing all the fucking.”

That’s the danger of a trade imbalance.

That is our future.

A trade imbalance in time favors the people providing the raw goods.

In 1850s China, the Chinese were providing more raw goods to Great Britain then Great Britain was to China. As a consequence, British sterling was flowing out of the country. To combat that, the British decided to import opium into China. When the Chinese objected because their people were getting addicted to opium, the British insisted that the Chinese purchase opium, and the results where were the opium wars. There were two of them.

This is how the west generally corrects a trade imbalance.

Now, the analogy that Thomas Sowell used with his supermarket is a little unfair. There are of course other factors that go into the equation, but if we lived in a world where there were no external factors except you and the supermarket, in time you would run out of money. If you tried to print up money, your supermarket might cut you off. Now, of course, you could run up a debt to your supermarket, give them an IOU; but in time the note would come due. At that point, if you didn’t have money, which you won’t, you can again either print up money or not not pay.

At that point, you’ll be cut off at which point you can either starve or resolve to go to war and simply steal the food from the supermarket.

Those are the poor choices before the King Louis who now runs the United States of America.

The alternative is not palatable to our elites, our King Louises.

The alternative is to return the United States to a country that actually makes things, that restores the trade imbalance.

Our King Louises reject that option because it cuts into their money.

And they are too stupid to see that it will kill them in the end.

Sincerely,

Immortality and False Prophets

Let us write the history of the world without being clever.

There are no movers and shakers in history; that is a lie, an opiate, to give men a false and misguided sense of immortality.

Common men created the world.

They lived and died.

They spoke languages that have no official form nor grammar.

They raised animals, grew crops, and ate food that have no names, no nomenclature, and no taxonomy.

Men and women moved fluently and freely over borders in order to survive.

Their movements, their associations have no labels.

There was only a continuous exchange of elements and information.

Their unwritten and unclassified experience is the prime straw that stirs the drink.

They are a mass of hydroxy-carbonated goo moving over earth’s terrain, destroying, assimilating, and rebuilding.

False prophets arose to capture that experience, store it, repackage it, give it approved form, then sell it back to the common man in order to dominate him.

These men were known as academics. They placed this bottled experience in buildings called libraries and museums.

These men redefined human experience.

They invented heroes and so-called movers and shakers.

They invented a false etiquette.

They defined certain experiences as more valid.

These academics, their libraries, their museums are false prophets and false gods.

Leonardo da Vinci and his Mona Lisa are but two products of these false prophets; these products exist to empower the academic and by extension the kings and queens who control the academic.

People, young and old, are instructed by the academic that these two experiences, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Mona Lisa, are supreme and therefore immortal.

By extension the designators of these pieces of immortality must therefore be immortal.

Yet these designators, these opinion makers, are not immortal, nor are the products, the art, the music, the writings , the heroes, the movers and shakers they designate.

They’re only part of the continuum of the efforts of the common man.

There is no Caesar.

There is no Alexander.

There is no Leonardo da Vinci.

They are manifestations of an opiate haze created by academics and the false kings and queens who in turn control those academics.

The great man of history does not exist.

There is only anonymous man toiling away, growing crops, raising animals, eating food, building shelter for himself, trying to survive another day, until the day he dies.

Therein lies true immortality.

Cryptocurrencies

What’s going on with cryptocurrencies?

If you’ve been watching the news lately you have noticed that Bitcoin has been going down, while other currencies like Dogecoin have been going up.

There’s a lot of volatility in the markets for cryptocurrencies.

Elon Musk has been promoting Dogecoin.

People like Charles Munger and Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway have publicly denounced Bitcoin.

What’s going on?

What’s going on is that Bitcoin is threatening fiat currency.

Fiat currency is what we live under now.

Under fiat currency, the government can print up US dollars whenever they want to finance wars and government programs.

The problem with fiat currency is that it gives a disproportionate share of the printed money to the wealthy who own Corporate America.

Thus fiat currency lessons your share of America.

It’s called fiat currency because it can be printed on decree. That’s what fiat means. For example during WW II, Mussolini would issue a fiat; he ruled by official decree. Whatever he said became law.

Likewise, the elites who rule our government can print up money by official decree and then give a disproportionate share of it to themselves.

Bitcoin is a threat to that.

Bitcoin is a threat to connected crooks like Warren Buffett and Charles Munger.

Warren Buffett attended the Wharton school, and Charles Munger attended Harvard.

These are two of the Empire’s most “prestigious” schools.

Elon Musk attended the University of Pennsylvania.

These people think of themselves as masters of the universe. The schools that they attended indoctrinated them into the cult of the best and the brightest.

Moreover, these men are whales. They have a lot of money. When whales move through the water, the other fish are moved. The oceans move.

Thus these three man can move the markets by virtue of their investments or by virtue of what they say. And they have unlimited access to main stream media.

They don’t like Bitcoin. They don’t like Bitcoin because fiat currency makes them a lot of bucks. All three of them are government parasites. They make a lot of money through government programs. Fiat currency fuels those government programs.

Do you understand?

Bitcoin threatens that ideology, that mindset.

Bitcoin cannot be created on demand. Bitcoin cannot be inflated artificially by man.

Bitcoin threatens the existing order where connected crooks can print up money and give a disproportionate share of it to themselves.

That’s why Bitcoin was invented.

Bitcoin returns us to a gold standard of sorts where to get rich, you have to go out and add value to society.

In other words, you can’t get rich by printing money and giving a lot of it to yourself.

Because Bitcoin works against official government theft, the people who are connected with the government have a vested interest in destroying Bitcoin.

One of the ways to destroy Bitcoin is to promote other cryptocurrencies which they the elites control.

Thus Dogecoin. Thus the other cryptocurrencies which are known as shit coins.

What makes Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies shit coins is that there are not a defined number of coins that can be printed up. In other words an inexhaustible supply of coins can be printed up just like dollar bills can be printed up.

In addition to that, shit coins are often stored on centralized servers that the elites control. So if the elites decide to shut down the shit coins in the future, it’s easier for them to do that.

It’s a power game. It’s the same game that man has been playing for thousands of years. It’s the regular people versus the elites.

That’s what’s going on. That’s what the battle is all about.

Who will win this battle?

In the long term, Bitcoin will win. In the near term the elites will win.

The elites will win because the little people who desire Bitcoin do not understand how vicious and greedy the elites are.

The little people always underestimate the ruthlessness of the wealthy elite.

Only when the wealthy elite are taken to the guillotine, as King Louis and the French whore Marie Antoinette were, can Bitcoin win.

That could take centuries.

Smaller Rewards, Better Results

There is not a shred of legitimacy to these tech boys making billions of dollars for developing e-platforms in any area of endeavor be it cryptocurrency, healthcare or social media.

Their making this money is a violation of the social contract we have with each other in which we agree to not rip each other off.

If we are going to allow tech boys to make billions, why not doctors, why not lawyers, why not teachers, why not cops.

They add a hell of a lot more value than the guy who invented Tik Tok.

So why do we allow it?

It’s all arbitrary. We are adults. We can do whatever we want.

We allow it because the elites say so; consequently, they have paid off Congress to sit back and do nothing about the amazing profiteering the tech boys engage in.

There’s no practical justification for allowing these billionaires to have so much money.

The idea behind them having this money is that they will do wonderful productive things with that money that will benefit society.

The reasoning goes that smart people who make billions will use that money to do more smart things.

Well, where’s the beef?

Show me the stunning results from Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk.

I’m waiting.

I-I-I’m waaaaaai-ting.

Self-driving cars – bust.

Large batteries to power the house – nonexistent.

A million men on Mars – don’t hold your breath too long. Mars is 40,000,000 miles away at the closest; there is no oxygen there.

Electric cars – impractical right now. Unless you’re Ewan McGregor with an advance team scouring the countryside for electrical outlets.

Solar roof tiles – I guess Elon gave up on that idea.

Zoom replacing in-school learning. Give me a break. Kids are going to have to repeat this past year because the learning was so poor. Kids were logging in, then sleeping during class.

Machines melding with brains – Elon might want to run that one by the neurosurgeons.

High-velocity rapid transit – where is it? This is an idea that can work.

Impossible burgers based upon plants – Obesity is going to be even more of a problem.

Tik Tok – Woooooooooow.

Sadly, there are no great ideas coming out of these billionaires. What I see are a lot of mansions, jets, sports teams, ranches and yachts.

Jeff Bezos just purchased a yacht that costs a half billion dollars. A half a billion dollars! Maybe he’s trying to top Snyder of the Washington football team. Snyder has a basketball court and an IMAX theater in his. What’s Bezos putting in? An opera house? A baseball stadium?

That’s not exactly what I could call a wise investment of money.

How about initiatives to fix homelessness?

Nope.

How about better working conditions for the people at Amazon?

Nope.

How about paying down on student debt?

Forget about it.

Instead what exists is a lot of lobbying to get more free money for the billionaires.

Thanks but no thanks.

It’s a fact of life that when people make too much money, they tend to lose initiative.

They lose the fighting spirit that made them great in the first place.

We see it in sports stars all the time.

Once they make the big bucks their careers head south.

It’s the same way with the billionaires.

So what should we do about it?

We need to restructure patent and trademark law so that we separate out the creation of the idea from its implementation.

In other words nobody enjoys exclusive right to manufacture or implement a concept.

So, if a guy invents the concept for Tik Tok he has to sell that at an industry agreed upon price to all comers who then reserve the privilege to implement it or improve upon it at which point the cycle begins again.

In this way, we get better products at a fraction of the cost.

And it will be better for the billionaires also.

They will be more like the rest of us, still rich, but much more productive.

Like sports stars used to be.

Sincerely,

Lies

I remember my first-grade teacher teaching me that anybody could grow up and become President of the United States.

My first-grade teacher also taught me that George Washington threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River.

Both were lies.

They still are.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible for anyone to grow up and become President of United States anymore, unless of course you go to Harvard University or one of these phony, pseudo-prestigious schools that our media promotes as a so-called good school.

So then why did my first-grade teacher tell me that?

I suspect because she was born in an era where it was possible for anyone to grow up and become President of the United States.

After all, that’s what her parents taught her.

And indeed, it was that way.

If Abe Lincoln, who grew up in a log cabin, could do it, why couldn’t you?

It’s an attractive fantasy that Americans still harbor.

Unfortunately, it’s not true anymore.

It’s not true anymore because Harvard University, which sucks the cock of the monarchy in England, decided to manifest its influence and death grip upon the United States of America and its citizenry.

We picked up a lot of bad habits from the British, and one of those bad habits was elitism.

Our elites destroyed our country just as the elites in Britain destroyed theirs.

Look at the pathetic food relief packages that the elites in London recently dispensed out to needy families; that’s how much they care about their people. Our elites are right behind them.

In the early part of the country, after WWI, knuckleheads from elite universities in our country decided to meet together with elite knuckleheads from Great Britain in order to form a think tank which would then guide the world.

As to why these idiots would think that they had any special knowledge on making affairs better when they were the ones who created World War I in the first place is beyond anyone’s guess.

But they did get together.

Knuckleheads like Elihu Root got together with knuckleheads from England to do just that.

They formed a big group called: The Institute of International Affairs.

After a few snags, the group split apart, but not really; our knuckleheads started the Council on Foreign Relations, and the knuckleheads in England started Chatham House.

You can see how well that has worked out for us and the people of the world.

It has been a nonstop slaughterhouse in the past and current centuries. But who cares, right? After all Penny Pritzker’s living pretty good. That’s the important thing.

Who is Penny Pritzker?

Pretty Penny Pritzker was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

She’s a fascist.

It is the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR, that has an inordinate influence upon what happens politically in the United States.

Where do CFR members come from?

What schools did they attend?

In large part, these people today come from corrupt schools, principal among them being Harvard University.

That’s where Penny went. She also graduated from the Son of Criminal Bastard Sr. University, aka Stanford University.

Penny also sits on “The Corporation” at Harvard, an advisory board; additionally she is the chair person for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. That’s where our new CIA director, William Burns, was president. Are you getting the drift?

Another feature of these people who sit on the CFR is that they are either wealthy or very closely allied with people who are wealthy.

Penny is very wealthy. She and her governor brother, J. B. Pritzker, are part of the Pritzker family in Chicago.

They own Chicago. They own Illinois.

They also own Obama, surprise, a Harvard graduate.

No connection there, eh?

And there in lies the problem with these organizations like the CFR. They exist to cement the power of their members.

The CFR not only populates our President’s cabinets, they also populate the Presidency itself. It is the CFR who will decide who your president will be.

Surprise!

Now of course the CFR is not the only think tank in the United States; many scholars may not even think it’s the most prestigious think tank.

Don’t worry. Harvard University has also installed its puppets on other think tanks, like the Bilderbergers, the Brookings Institution, the Hoover institution and many others.

They are the unelected government who will decide your president. And don’t worry, it’s not going to be some guy from a log cabin anymore; hey, that guy might be a loose cannon.

It’s going to be somebody who sold their soul to the elites. It’s going to be someone who the elites can control.

And like the mob, they have a million and one ways to get you inside a car. What do you think Epstein’s island was all about?

So no, not anyone can be President of United States. Not anymore.

My first-grade teacher, while most likely a very nice person, grew up in a different era. As did her parents who taught her.

That era no longer exists.

It’s just another myth that we choose to believe in, like George Washington throwing a silver dollar across the Potomac River.

It’s a nice story.

Trickle Down Economics

There have been a number of articles recently, usually from fascist mouthpieces like the Washington Post, that trash trickle down economics. They called it a bad idea that won’t die.

They are right but not in the way you think.

What is trickle down economics?

Trickle down economics is giving money to the rich and hoping that it finds its way to the poor.

Trickle down economics is not allowing middle-class people to keep their money.

As usual the media has it backwards, intentionally so, of course, because the media works for the rich.

It is the job of the media to confuse you.

When we give money to the government who then give it preferentially to the rich, that is trickle down economics.

And, guess what, it doesn’t work.

But when we give money to the middle class through tax breaks, that is not trickle down economics.

That’s only what the media wants you to think.

What our government practices now, and has practiced since FDR, is trickle down economics.

Fighting nonstop wars, both physical and abstract, in which we give trillions of dollars to defense contractors and corporations to fight the war – whether it’s a real war in Vietnam or Iraq, or an abstract war such as the war on drugs, or the war on poverty – is trickle down economics.

It is trickle down economics because the corpo-fascist pigs at the top keep a disproportionate share of the money.

Our politicians like these wars because they have been given postpaid bribes in the form of corporate board seats, jobs for their worthless children, speaking engagements, book deals, and hosting spots on television programs.

And as you have seen, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer.

People who make a million dollars a year are not rich. They are still middle class.

People who are worth fifteen million dollars are not rich. They are still middle class.

John D. Rockefeller was rich. These people are nowhere close to John D. Rockefeller. In today’s money John D. Rockefeller was worth about $500 billion. That’s rich. That’s upper class.

The people who make a million a year are not rich. Got it?

Those people live pretty much the same life that you do.

Those people who make a million a year cannot afford their own private jet. They cannot afford their own super yacht.

They are not rich.

They live the same life that you do. They fly on commercial jets just like you.

It is those people who will start the small businesses that will share the wealth amongst poor people.

When those people get tax breaks, they will invest that money in their local community.

That money invested in the local community will lift it up, make it better.

That’s called trickle up economics.

On the other hand, when we give that money to the government in the form of taxes, we put power into the government.

The problem with that is that the government is usually stupid and corrupt.

Government officials more often than not give that money away to their cronies like the DuPonts and the other rich families whose corporations contract with the government.

Now if these cronies were smart it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Frequently these cronies though are lazy and stupid. They got to where they got not by being smart but by being connected.

The rich, who would like to keep all their money to themselves, are happy to confuse you, or happy for you to think that giving your money to the government will make things better for you.

Unfortunately experience has not proven this to be the case.

Those countries that have embraced a government approach to economics, such as the Soviet Union, such as Cuba, such as North Korea, such as all the former eastern bloc countries, have failed miserably, have impoverished their peoples.

What socialist and communist countries engage in is trickle down economics.

Allowing people to keep their money is trickle up economics.

The media, controlled by the rich, has it backwards, and intentionally so.

Happiness and Equality

Once there was an evil king. He was known as the Eagle King. He had a dark soul. All he cared about was power and gold.

He had all the gold in the world, but he wanted more.

He had all the power in the world, but it was not enough.

He wasn’t happy, and it bothered him that his subjects while poor were happy. So he sought out to steal their happiness.

Without that happiness he would die.

The king was a very devious and clever cat.

He operated in the shadows.

One day he hatched a plan.

He consulted his top advisers, nobles, and scientists.

After careful deliberation, he decided to intentionally inflict a pox upon his subjects.

The goal was to create fear in society.

People would naturally panic over the disease, he concluded.

The people will be clamoring for a solution, his advisers told him.

I will provide a solution, said the king. I will call for a general quarantine. I will shut down all businesses in the community, except for mine.

My business will be deemed essential.

When the other businesses shut down, I will pick up the slack by providing those services that were lost.

That will mean more money for you, and us, said his nobles.

They were licking their chops at increased revenues, for they were as greedy as the king.

So they went ahead and implemented their plan.

The people readily embraced it.

Sieg Heil, they screamed.

But there was one voice of dissension.

Who dares to speak against me, said the king.

I, the lowly knave, came the reply.

I don’t think you thought this out properly, said the knave.

Such a plan will ultimately hurt you. The people will figure it out in time and come to hate you. You will win in the short run but not the long run. Plus, you will make more money in taxes if you will only let the people enjoy some of the money.

We will continue to lie, said one of the advisers. And, it’s not their money we’re after, it’s their happiness.

We don’t want them having any, said the king.

But doesn’t that go against our traditions and our values of pursuing life, liberty and happiness, asked the knave.

We are changing the values and the traditions, said one of the advisers. What preceded will be no more.

We will program the people to not seek happiness, said another adviser. If people seek happiness, then inevitably one person will have more than another. This will be unacceptable in the new value system in which equality will be valued.

That’s right, said the king. And to help cement this equality we will have people put hoods over their heads because we don’t want one person to be more beautiful than another. That would entail inequality.

The hood will serve a double purpose, added a noble. Not only will it prevent inequality, it will help prevent transmission of the disease. We want to make sure that we keep the fear going as long as possible. We don’t want people all getting the disease at once because then they will become immune.

We want, added the king, for the people to be exposed to this disease for the rest of their lives.

We want them to live in fear.

Can this be done, asked the knave.

It most certainly can, said one of the scientists.

Because we have put people in quarantine, because we have asked them to wear hoods in the name of equality, we have cut down transmission of the disease. This will make the disease linger at a low level.

If ever we want to bring the number up in order to cause more fear, said another scientist, we will send our infected people into the community to mingle and spread the disease through common objects such as money.

By emphasizing the hood, said the king, we have taken people’s focus off washing their hands. It is the handwashing that is primarily responsible for preventing disease.

Won’t the people figure this out, asked the knave.

No, said the king. We have programmed them over the years to believe that we the royals and nobles are of superior intelligence and power. They will do exactly what we tell them to do.

It works every time, said an advisor. We have been lying for years. By the time they catch on, they are in their 60s and ready to die. The young people are too new to figure things out. The middle-age people are too occupied getting through the day.

Because we have weakened them by stealing much of their wealth they don’t have the strength or inclination to care, laughed one of the nobles.

That all sounds good, said the knave, but you have forgotten one thing.

Speak, said the king.

Without the pursuit of happiness, said the knave, without social interaction, what makes an individual uniquely human will die. Humanity will die. When humanity dies, you will die because you will have no more happiness to steal.
