Bits and Pieces – 20180331, Saturday

Trade Wars: Martin Armstrong has some interesting perspectives on the US moves, in this very short blog post: Protectionism & Trade Wars. The next article looks at the role of vehicles in trade wars between the EU and the US: France And Germany Clash Over US Car Tariffs. But consider this graphic from the article:

Bits and Pieces – 20180220, Tuesday

Commentary: As today’s focus I want to offer two videos that outline the contamination of our food chain by agricultural practices and synthetic chemicals such as Monsanto’s glyphosate, trade name RounrUp, that are poisoning us and creating an epidemic of physical disease and disorders.

The first below, describes how modern agriculture has lead to food of decreasing nutritional value contaminated with compounds and genetic structures that are creating a major health epidemic while at the same time destroying soil quality:

The second, below discusses among other things the adverse effects of sugar and glyphosate and the physiological and neurological disorders they lead to such as autism and Alzheimer’s as well as obesity, diabetes, liver damage, cancer and cardiac problems:

Commentary: The kitten that recently adopted us, has grown to the point that it can reach the doorknob when it wants out so we have to act as its valet. I’m thinking, however, I’ll get us one of these robodogs:

The American Empire (AE): For NATO buffs is the following article: NATO’s Real Existential Threat: The Surrender Of Western Values. The author seems not to understand that NATO is an important tool of the projection of US militarism in the same way the Roman empire co-opted other tribes to fight theit peripheral battles.

Climate: Cold temperature and snowfall records continue to fall across the northern hemisphere. Oppenheimer Ranch Project, Ice Age Farmer, and Adapt 2030 are three sites that continue to document these occurrences. And the record heat in Australia reported by the media? That lasted for most of a day followed by record cold which the media didn’t report. The MSM didn’t report snow and hail in Tasmania and parts of northern Africa like Morocco and the Sahara. But keep the faith. The world will still burn up after the next ice age. And if not then, then in a few billion year when the dying sun expands and incinerates the entire inner solar system. And all because of pesky CO2.

Bits and Pieces: A friend asked what do we call the post-millennial generation? This is the snowflake generation and this explains how they have come to be: The Fragile Generation. For the child who grows up in a traditional manner, he will not be facing a level playing field in the adult world – he will tower above it in ability. If he (or she in order not to be too gender incorrect) is at all self-motivated he will be worldly successful.

Trump may only have to sit back and wait: GOP Reps Seek Criminal Prosecution Of FBI, DOJ Officials For “Full Throated” Illegal Misconduct And “Treason”. Is this going anywhere?

Fresh on having the lyrics to O Canada once again revised to make them more politically correct, comes further evidence of where Trudeau is going: “We Say Peoplekind”: Trudeau Mansplains To Woman That “Mankind” Is Not An Appropriate Term.

Here is a new essay on Syria by our friend Paul Merkley: SYRIA’S FUTURE.

There is a video of the wolves of Chernobyl which along with the video on the wolves of Yellowstone Here’s one on the dogs of Chernobyl. They are all encouraging about nature’s ability to adapt to disaster: Meet the Dogs of Chernobyl – the Abandoned Pets That Formed Their Own Canine Community.

The media, in the following article, would include the CBC and CTV, neither of which is capable of unbiased reporting: WSJ Asks: Why Is The Media Ignoring The Real Bombshell FISA Memo?.

Commentary: Closing off 2017. War has not broken out either in North Korea or the Middle East. However, the issues in these two areas remain unresolved. Iran seems to be the likely flash point.

I’ve been following the global cooling issue coincidentally with the grand solar minimum (GSM) and am convinced that it will be the most important event of the next decade next to a global war and a global economic collapse. In fact the three events have strong co-dependencies.

I am now publishing Bits and Pieces 3 or 4 times a month. This will continue but my focus is shifting to the GSM and its implications.

Bits and Pieces – 20171215, Friday

WWIII: The following article provides a summary of the multinational military activity in the wars in Iraq and Syria. The accuracy of the numbers may be questioned but the key point is that this is a global war. It is notable that Canada’s role has been omitted: World War in Syria and Iraq (MAP).

Bits and Pieces – 20171126, Sunday

Commentary: A topic that has a small following is that of global cooling and an approaching grand solar minimum (GSM). Martin Armstrong speaks of the famine associated with such minima: The Approaching Famine. The “Little Ice Age” correlates with the Maunder Minimum in sunspot activity as shown in the next chart:

Bits and Pieces – 20171117, Friday

Commentary: In Bits and Pieces – 20170731, Monday, I discussed why Bitcoin can’t be considered to be a currency. Martin Armstrong, in discussion of the “petrodllar” (Is the Dollar Really a Petrodollar anymore?), lists its key features:

  1. it can be used worldwide without permission from the USA as is the case with the Japanese yen;
  2. it is a single currency with a single federal debt market where BIG money can park – that is not the case for the Euro, Ruble, or Yuan.

Bits and Pieces – 20171108, Wednesday

Commentary: I see little chance that the power struggle in the Saudi royal family will spill over into something larger. The parallel might be Turkey where Erdogan consolidated power to become a virtual dictator. Here is an article that has a different point of view although it is unsupported: Making Sense Of Saudi’s ‘Game Of Thobes’. And here are a couple of articles on the struggle, Saudi Arabia Is About To Confiscate $33 Billion From Four Of Its Richest People. Perhaps the last word is: Real Motive Behind Saudi Purge Emerges: $800 Billion In Confiscated Assets.

WWIII: Again I ask why Britain is beating the American war drum: British Secretary Of State Refuses to Rule Out A “Preemptive Strike” On North Korea?

The American Empire (AE): On a tip from a friend here’s a short video and a short article on the final stage of empire: The 7 Signs Of An Empire In Decline and What Happened To Normal People When The Roman Economy Fell Apart? The application is not just to the AE unless you consider most of the Western countries as vassal states. The decadence is pervasive well beyond the US. I think I linked this video by Chalmers Johnson some time ago but here it is again: DECLINE of EMPIRES: The Signs of Decay. One might take WWIII as the event that ends Western empire. Here’s one further comparison to the Roman Empire: Washington Is “The New Rome”.
