Bits and Pieces – 20181220, Thursday


Continuing system instability causing loss of video and the internet due to mainboard problems has resulted in the loss of a body of text that I had assembled around the arrest of Huawei CFO, Meng Wanzhou and other topics.

Initially I considered that Meng’s arrest was illegal and was puzzled that a local crown attorney could arbitrarily execute it. It must go deeper suggesting that some level of government would be involved. As a friend observed and subsequent reading confirmed that the arrest and detention of suspects for which there is an outstanding warrant in the US is a matter of existing treaty or understanding. Still, an arrest of this significance had to be cleared at the highest level of the Canadian government.

I had gathered some links to the blow-back on Canada which are now lost but they involve the detention by the Chinese of two Canadians (three as I get ready to publish) and the loss of the Chinese market to Canada Goose clothing company. One source has suggested that the extradition of Meng could take years. Such happens when illegal aliens in this country who commit crimes, are almost impossible to be deport. Should the deportation occur quickly it would throw big questions at the Canadian judicial system. In any case, trying to write a rational analysis of a situation dependent on what is gleaned from visible sources is fraught with problems. So here are two analyses by other sources that are worth reading if the topic interests you:.

The first is Larry Lindsey: Something About The Huawei CFO Arrest Doesn’t Make Sense and the second is The Trade War Distraction: Huawei And Linchpin Theory.

The link that I lost describes a much larger aspect of the war against China in the context of all technology and not just telecommunications. The US is moving to prevent China from accessing leading edge chip making equipment, an area where the US holds some leading position. The Chinese can and will develop their own solutions to bypass the Americans but this can take a few years. This buys the US time but for what. The Chinese graduate more engineers in a year than exist in total in the US. Whatever their quality of education (we train the best), statistically they will have more of the brightest and smartest. And with American colleges focused on white privilege issues, the US is screwed.

This link will direct you to a series of Global News clips on the topic which flow one from another. I watched a couple and Trudeau manages to say nothing other than he new about it two days in advance which places his knowledge before the G-20 meeting at least. Had Canada not been onside it would not have happened. A quiet warning to Meng in advance would have prevented it. Also note the multiple references to Huawei 5-G cellphone technology which is now being rejected over unspecified security concerns. In other words, what American manufacturer benefits?

Continued system problems have delayed this report: China Press Warns To “Prepare For Escalation Of Conflict With Canada”. Let’s see how Trudeau dances around this one. And this morning: China Arrests Third Canadian Citizen As Feud Worsens

Here’s the other side of the Huawei story: suppression of the technology leader to allow US firms to gain dominance: US Pressures Germany To Ditch Huawei Over ‘Security Concerns’,

Sanctions and Blockades

If you have lingering doubts about how the US is at war with a number of countries using economic attacks rather than kinetic attacks (yet), read this article: US Demands Europe Join Its War Against Russia.

Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)

The site SHFTplan has an article on grid failure: Catastrophic Power Outage Poses a “Profound Threat” to the US, New Government Report Finds. It cites a new report out in the US titled Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage,. At 94 pages we have not read it but present it for future reading. Another report cited is ELECTROMAGNETIC DEFENSE TASK FORCE (EDTF).

Propaganda and Fake News

Regular readers will know that I have emphasized false flag events as being one of the most insidious propaganda instruments that states use to further their agendas, usually meaning the rationale for declaring war on another  country. Here’ a short piece by Martin Armstrong on false flags: The Use of False Flags to Increase Power.

The American Empire (AE)

Endless wars on the frontier of empire are expensive: US Commits To “Indefinite” Occupation Of Syria; Controls Region The Size Of Croatia.

Well that was a few days ago. Today is another day: In Drastic Reversal, Trump Orders Full Withdrawal From Syria After “Victory Over ISIS”. For a good discussion of the issue, watch the 35 minute video from Blackstone intelligence:


Apart from being a good reasonably short overview of NATO’s relationship with Russia, this article reveals the extent propaganda is used by NATO  through the MSM: Psychoanalysing NATO: Schizophrenia. The whole NATO narrative I’ve covered before but the way the video creates a montage of genetically cloned psychobabel brought to mind this recent example of the complete lack of diversity in MSM reporting:

Here’s another late opinion piece: Latest Odds of a Shooting War Between NATO and Russia. As the military arm of the American Empire in Europe, NATO is continuing to move aggressively up to Russia’s borders. At some point this can’t be tolerated any more than the US could tolerate Russian missiles in Cuba. The problem is that a war with NATO is an abstraction for a war of Russia against most countries in Europe as well as Canada and especially the US. Europe will be flattened this time since any such war will go nuclear very quickly if only using tactical nukes on the battlefield and intermediate range missiles to take out Brussels and any European capital participating. This is not a war between Russia and NATO, this is WWIII.


Canada is the land of rights and fair play. Too bad this doesn’t mean much in the real world as many are starting to find out:. Trudeau’s economy isn’t helping: Canadian Personal Bankruptcies Are Surging At Breakneck Speeds.


Most of the news on protests in the EU, particularly around migrants, I do not bother to report. Just so you know that it is a very real and current issue, here’s a news item from today: Belgium Police Fire Tear Gas, Water Cannon As Anti-Migration Protests Turn Violent. With the UN Compact on migration, the protests and violence are sure to escalate.

The pension Crisis

Illinois keeps digging: Illinois’ official pension shortfall worsens to $134 billion despite strong markets, increased contributions.


I’m grabbing this chart of the deviation in the earth’srotational velocity for future reference. Also this link: CHANGES IN THE EARTH’S ROTATION ARE IN THE WIND.

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW)

I’ve introduced you to the idea of chemtrails which has moved from the realm of conspiracy theory to front line science. Here’s the latest from Harvard: Scientists Will Begin Geoengineering Experiment And Try To BLOCK THE SUN. This is unfortunately an example of the insular thinking that tends to occupy people such as those promoting the climate change agenda. Here’s why it is unnecessary. Conducting experiments on a planetary scale is never a good idea.

In a solar minimum, particularly the one as severe as the current one, total solar irradiance (TSI0, the energy from the sun drops off with a global cooling effect The sun’s magnetosphere contracts producing fewer sunspots, the source of energetic activity. The earth’s magnetosphere which is coupled to the sun’s contracts allowing more cosmic rays (currently at record highs) to enter the atmosphere. The cosmic rays induce increased water vapour nucleation and cloud formation which increases the earth’s albedo (reflectivity) allowing less energy to reach the surface, a cooling effect. At the same time the cosmic rays penetrate the magma chambers of volcanoes raining their internal pressure by a bubble chamber effect. This causes the increased volcanism that we are experiencing releasing particles into the atmosphere that also increase cloud nucleation and global cooling. The eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in 1991 caused global temperatures to drop temporarily (1991 through 1993) by about 1°F (0.5°C).

That solar cycles are the dominant factor in driving climate change – I will use the term in its proper meaning and not as a euphemism for AGW – is finally being studied by an increasing number of real climate scientists. Also, from the above description, you should understand how insular in their thinking, the mainstream AGW proponents are and why their climate models repeatedly fail to accurately predict global temperature and have failed utterly in predicting extreme weather events.

I was looking for a graph of all climate models versus observed data before my most recent system failure. I’ll search again later since most graphs stop in 2015.

I just came across this short video with Dr. Tim Ball (6:48 and aired in March):

Grand Solar Minimum (GSM)

As a marker to self, Total Solar Irradiance data (TSI) is found at this site at the University of Colorado.
