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.

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.

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.

Sincerely,

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.

Sincerely,

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.

Sincerely,

The Third World

Have you ever wondered why Third World countries are poor?

How can this possibly be if the United States is so altruistic?

Isn’t the the goal of the United States, and the noble elites who lead us, to export our wonderful Constitution to everyone?

Well, the United States isn’t altruistic. Not only that, the United States has a vested interest in those countries being poor.

Of course so does its bedfellow and partner in crime, Great Britain, who wrote the book on screwing over Third World plantations, excuse me, countries.

It works like this.

You loan money to the Third World country through the IMF.

The dictator of that Third World country steals billions of dollars which he deposits into Swiss bank accounts or other bank accounts of First World countries.

The dictator then leaves in the middle of the night before hoards of his countrymen storm his palace in order to kill him.

The dictator settles in South Florida and lives a comfortable life while still being able to enjoy the billions that he stole.

People of the Third World country, however, are still on the hook for the money that the dictator borrowed and stole.

Those people still have to pay back the money at exorbitant interest rates, rates they cannot afford.

Because of that, those people live in poverty forever.

That’s how it works.

That’s why Jamaica is in debt today.

That’s why many Third World countries are in debt. That’s why they will always be in debt.

The United States and their bedfellow, Great Britain, have never had any interest in building up Third World countries.

Name me one Third World country that our elites have built up or made better.

The United States has never been interested in giving people of a Third World country a stake in the game.

Usually, our elites, and their mentors in Great Britain, start off with exploitation and slave labor. When the people rise up in rebellion, the elites wage war.

Our elites love war principally because they make a load of money off it.

If our elites win the war they put a new dictator in place who enforces slave labor upon his people while, of course, borrowing and stealing billions of dollars.

If our elites lose the war, they put sanctions on those countries which effectively force them into poverty status.

When the country comes around and shows desire to play ball, our elites employ Old Reliable, their trick with the International Monetary Fund.

Presto! Instant slavery.

These Third World countries will always be poor if they deal with the United States of America.

For these countries to get out of poverty, they will have to band together and support each other without the United States of America – which is a difficult road to walk.

Ultimately what will release them from poverty is the death of our elites.

That’s the way it works.

Sincerely,

American Communism

Here’s today’s big surprise: our leaders are communists.

In fact, our leaders have been communists for a long, long time.

When Trump says that socialism will never come to United States, that’s a joke.

We’ve had socialism in the United States since 1932.

Where has Trump been living? He’s either oblivious, illiterate, unobservant, or stupid. Of course, he could be all four.

What does he think Social Security is?

What does he think Food Stamps are?

What does he think public housing is?

We have more government programs than any country out there. Our socialism puts other socialist countries to shame.

We have a government program for everything. We probably have a government program to subsidize ice cream.

Instituting socialism, collectivism, communism, pretty much the same in the real world, is the goal of our elites.

This is what Joe McCarthy stumbled onto in the early 1950s.

He got in the way of their party.

Because he got in the way of their party, they broke him.

Joe McCarthy pulled the curtain back and revealed who they were.

He came to see what he was up against.

It’s too bad that most Americans don’t understand what they’re up against.

Trump is part of that process.

Our leaders are very clever.

Fidel Castro would start insurrections against himself when he was the leader of Cuba.

That seems strange until you realize that Fidel would use those insurrections as a means to attract the type of people who would rise up against him.

Then he would be more able to round them up and incarcerate them.

A very clever man that Fidel Castro was.

Our elites are no different.

They set Trump up as an insurrection of sorts against their plan to institute totalitarianism in the United States.

Only in our case, they don’t arrest the insurgents, they entertainment them to death while doing nothing.

A dog with a bone neither barks nor bites.

The Romans did as much by offering bread and circus.

There is nothing new under the sun.

Trump is just a new dog practicing old tricks.

He has accomplished very little while in office.

Almost nothing.

He’s all talk and no walk. Instead of stating that socialism will never come to the United States, he would be better off by instituting programs that ensure that our country veer way from socialism.

He could have set up a competitive market place in healthcare. One of the reasons why health care insurance premiums are so high is because we have overcentralization in the healthcare industry. He could have decentralized the healthcare industry.

Actions speak louder than words.

Yet Trump did nothing, and does nothing.

One would be hard-pressed to find one substantial piece of legislation that Trump has instituted that fundamentally alters the relentless tide of socialism that has been manifest in the United States for the past 80 years.

Where is it?

It doesn’t exist.

It doesn’t exist because it’s not meant to exist.

Trump is one president in a long line of puppet-placeholders owned by Corporate America who exists to implement the elites’ plan for the American citizenry.

What is that plan?

Total control of your life through an oppressive communist regime that they, the elites, control – except this communist regime will be one in which they, not the state, will own all the property.

You’ll be a slave on their plantation.

Seeing the Light

Why do I believe what I do? How did I get so strange? Why can people not see what I see?

I used to be like you. I used to believe in the empire. I bought into all that bullshit that John McCain peddled about America being the light of the world, America needing to export its Constitution everywhere, and America needing to tame the barbarian beast.

I still believe in America, just not the America that you may believe in.

I certainly don’t believe in America the Empire, and I have a hard time believing that our Founding Fathers overthrew British tyranny in order to set up a global tyranny called America the Empire.

I think if they could come back and see what America has become, they would be horrified.

So what made me change? What was the straw that broke the camel’s back?

There was no one specific event, but a slow culmination of events and experiences.

My transformation accelerated, but by no means began, during the election of Barack Obama.

During that election, John McCain waged a weak campaign. I think he took a dive.

Why is it hard for Americans to believe that a politician would take a dive? We have had corruption and fixings in all areas of endeavor in America. We’ve had point shaving in basketball; we’ve had fraud in healthcare; we’ve had steroids in baseball. Boxing was rigged in New York City all through the 1950s. Why not politics?

As I say, I think McCain took a dive.

He responded weakly when Colin Powell gutted his vice presidential candidate on national television. He said he didn’t care about a washed up activist named Bill Ayres. Really? You don’t care about a guy who is setting off bombs? I do, so why am I voting for you?

When Colin Powell stated that Sarah Palin was unequivocally unqualified to be President of United States should McCain die, McCain responded by talking about his long, warm association with Colin Powell. That’s it? My gosh, I would’ve had Colin Powell cut open, laying on the docks for the seagulls to pick apart within five minutes.

During that same campaign, the Senate seat was stolen away from Norm Coleman in Minnesota. Another Senate seat was stolen away from Ted Stevens in Alaska. Charges were trumped up on Stevens before the election; those charges conveniently went away after the election.

These Senate seats gave Obama a commanding majority in the Senate to do whatever he wanted, and he got whatever he wanted.

These events made me start thinking hard about our American elections and how fraudulent they might be.

Then came the bin Laden raid which seemed phony and contrived to me. Bin Laden was rumored to have died many years before. We weren’t allowed to see the body. Too gruesome, said Obama. Really? More gruesome than the bodies of dead Jews that we’ve seen carted around Nazi concentration camps in various documentaries for the last 70 years?

In the background were the wars in the Middle East which were sucking life blood out of the country.

Then came ISIS. Bands of thugs were killing innocent people all over the Levant, and Obama barely lifted a finger. Why not? I was confused. Where was ISIS getting all its arms and Toyota trucks? They didn’t have factories.

We heard about their financing coming from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. We heard stories of wounded ISIS soldiers being patched up in Israel. What’s going on here? These three countries are our our allies? Did we the US bankroll ISIS? Does this explain why Obama barely lifted a finger?

Then there was the exodus of migrants from wartorn Syria.

It was the United States that started the civil war in Syria. 500,000 died. Millions of Syrians became refugees. What was the point of all this? The point of all this was for America to gain full control of the oil fields in the Middle East.

It was all packaged in the need to get rid of a dictator named Assad. That’s funny, we didn’t have a problem with other dictators like the Shah, Marcos, Hussein, Somoza, Batista, Trujillo, the Saudi royal family, to name just a few of America the Empire’s former and current viceroys.

Of course, the control for oil has always been a preoccupation of the West. Oil is energy, and whoever controls energy controls modern life.

The desire to control oil has been the main reason America has become an empire.

Yet, as all this was occurring, America became a net exporter of oil. So then, what is the point of war now?

It soon became clear to me that war was an end to itself. The only purpose of war was to make Corporate America wealthier.

Whether it’s a real war or a cold war, Corporate America makes a fortune off war. And it isn’t just defense companies that make a fortune of war, all US corporations make a fortune off war.

While all these events were transpiring I begin to intensively study the JFK assassination and not in a cursory way.

Anyone who undertakes the study of the JFK assassination inevitably must study American history for the past 100 to 150 years because the roots of the JFK assassination stretch deep. What one finds isn’t pretty.

What I concluded in a nutshell was that after the industrial revolution, we as Americans allowed a few people to get too wealthy. These wealthy people, these wealthy industrialists – the Fords, Rockefellers, Mellons, Vanderbilts and others – decided they were better than the rest of us. They, along with older money, used their new money to set up think tanks and political organizations outside the government to control the government to feather their own nest, to cement their place in power.

These people decided that the system that the Founding Fathers created which enabled them to become wealthy wasn’t good enough for us, just them.

So they systematically set out to undermine the Founding Fathers so as to create a totalitarian state where they would be in control forever.

Through their think tanks and political organizations they took over the government and passed laws which enabled them to merge corporations, buy local and regional businesses and consolidate their power over America.

They gained control of the media and were thus able to perpetuate lies. They were also able to perpetuate the concept of a race of supermen who came from schools like Harvard and Yale so that regular people would continue to vote these supermen into power.

The media that they control would give these supermen names like, the wise men, the brain trust, and the whiz kids.

Of course, they were anything but.

These elites and their so-called brain trust created domestic crisis after crisis to rob and emaciate the American people. They shipped out jobs to China. They created a savings and loan crisis. They created a real estate crisis through which many people lost their homes. They substituted real paying jobs with drugs, cheap gossip, gambling, and tattoos.

Can you imagine losing your home? I can’t think of anything more psychologically devastating. That is a national disgrace and an indictment of their ability to rule.

Nevertheless, they continued their corruption with the coronavirus pandemic. They eschewed the wise advice of doctors who told them that the lockdown would do more damage than the virus self. They eschewed the wise advice of doctors who told them that the facemask was worthless. They eschew the wise advice of doctors today who tell them that caution is needed before instituting a vaccine that might be harmful.

Our leaders don’t care because they have a different agenda. Their agenda in the coronavirus pandemic is to destroy small business, independent doctors, and local school systems.

What they want to institute is a top down driven system of business, education, and healthcare.

They want total control of American’s lives.

They want Corporate America to provide all business, educational, and healthcare options.

As in the television show, The Outer Limits, there is nothing wrong with your television set. They will control the horizontal, they will control the vertical.

To help achieve this, they give you a fake reality show, a fake pro wrestling match called the Presidential elections.

They control both political parties.

There is not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties, and the two parties do what Corporate America tells them to do.

We are along for the ride. This is not what the Founding Fathers desired. They desired a real republic where people counted.

What we have in control of the United States is an unelected government called Corporate America. They’re calling the shots, not the American people.

That’s what I believe, and that’s why I believe it.

Sincerely,
