Bits and Pieces – 20170520, Saturday

Commentary: Is the MSM biased against Trump? Answer: News Coverage of Donald Trump’s First 100 Days. Could this be a contributing factor: Journalists Drink Too Much, Are Dumber Than Average, Study Finds? And finally, that source used by most MSM journalists for ground-breaking stories on Trump’s treason and corruption has been unmasked: And The Winner Of The 2017 Pulitzer Prize For Journalism Goes To….

Bits and Pieces – 20170517, Wednesday

Commentary: I’m preoccupied with trying to find a house but it seems that there are just too many systems that are approaching criticality not to throw some links your way.

Bits and Pieces – 20170402, Sunday

Commentary: I think this will be a weekly blog post from here on. Sunday makes a good wrap. Either the number of articles that I wish to present to you has declined in occurrence or I have simply absorbed them as I reported them and they no longer appear important enough to bring to your attention.

As an example, the Russian hacking scandal when it broke was big news. Now that it has been thoroughly debunked, the bits of news that still trickle out demonstrate little more than the desperation of the powers that want to dump Trump. As an example, as reported today, Tuesday, the tables of linking Trump and his advisors are being turned on the Democrat camp: Here’s The Story Behind Trump’s Podesta-Russia Tweet. Interesting but not ground-breaking news.

As you may know, I am collecting crises. More properly, I am trying to identify systems that are near their critical point. In such a system, when the critical point is reached, the smallest related event may trigger a systemic realignment and release of potential energy or tension. Charles-Hugh Smith, a prolific thinker and writer talks about these systems or crises: The Overlapping Crises Are Coming, Regardless Of Who’s In Power. If you can think of any, please let me know

Bits and Pieces – 20170310, Friday

Commentary: Perhaps the most important article for Canadian readers today is a ZeroHedge report on new data from the BIS (Bank of International Settlements – sometimes called the central bankers bank because it acts as a global banking watchdog): Whose Banks Are Riskiest: A Surprising Answer From The BIS. The Canadian banks deny any risk as does the government. However, not believing either institutions, I am mapping out a defensive strategy which I will publish at a later date.

This article is a short summary of what I have been saying about jobs: If You Think Your Job Is One That Cannot Be Automated, You’re In For A Rude Awakening. The 5-10 year time-frame for this to unfold is the time-frame for the point of no return for the collapse of Western civilization. The 15 minute video in it I embed below. It is extremely well produced and is comprehensive in its coverage:

The key point in this video is that of the horses. Hint: we didn’t need all the horses of the pre-auto age AND WE DON’T HAVE THEM TODAY.

Civil Unrest: Here is an articles discussing civil war in the US: Is The Left Trying To Start A Civil War?

I realized today that the disregard for the democratic process in the US by those who refuse to accept the outcome and are actively working to reverse the result in a soft coup – to overthrow Trump – are really seeking a totalitarian form of government that embodies their ideologies.

Cyber Warfare: More commentary on the cyber warfare being waged by the CIA on … uh, anyone and everyone apparently: CIA’s Dirty Cyber Tricks Exposed: “UMBRAGE” & Potential False Flag Attacks” and The most shocking revelation from the CIA spying scandal. And I thought all the viruses and Trojans I have dealt with over the year came from bored high school kids working out of their parents’ basements or Russian mob technicians: WikiLeaks Holds Press Conference On CIA Hacking, Will Share Hacking Tools With Tech Firms.

As a result of the revelation of the UMBRAGE project the CIA, the CIA cannot credibly identify a hack or intrusion as Russian in source.

Bits and Pieces – 20170307, Tuesday

Commentary: One of the biggest problems facing us is the loss of jobs due to RAAI. Not only will we not be able to cope with the surplus labour but the double whammy of increased entitlement payouts and decreased revenue from income and sales taxes will lead to collapse in government finances. But there are other social implications as well: When Factory Jobs Vanish, Men Become Less Desirable Partners. This is another tear in our social structure.

Now view this 6-minute video also at the end of the article:

Automation is introduced to cut labour costs by displacing workers or increasing productivity. That is, automation enables an increase in production without hiring more workers. A company will do this to gain a competitive advantage or maintain one. Since competition is the dominant force in most markets, automation will only increase, particularly as its costs continue to drop while labour costs rise. When all humans have been displaced, the process will go on by replacing older robots with newer, more efficient ones. We are entering a future where there will be far fewer jobs, particularly well-paying ones. Simply put, we already have too many people in our societies.

Bits and Pieces – 20170106, Friday

Commentary: I’ll be taking a break for a week after today while I travel.

Trump: A short read: Threats to Assassinate Trump. The left in all countries, has been traditionally violent. We have been witnessing the violence for months now, in the US. The threat to the presidency and to the Republic is greater from the left than from terrorist activity.

Cyber Warfare: If this doesn’t fly, what will they modify next in their unsupported claim: The “Russian Hacking” Story Changes Again?

WWIII: Escalation: The US Has Begun Amassing Troops On Russian Border.

Russia: When the West criticizes Russia for its imputed actions, what is never observed are the cases where the West has acted in a similar and often more egregious fashion. Pat Buchanan levels the playing field: Can Trump and Putin Avert Cold War II?

Climate: Something to be watched: Global Warming – Opps – Ice Age – Hits Europe. The problem is with the extreme political bias in climate science, we may be well into a mini-ice age before politicians will remove carbon taxes.

Cycle theory: As you know, I am a fan of the theories of cycles. I started posting Bits and Pieces to facilitate capturing the references in a searchable format for later discovery.  One of the prominent cycle theorists or modelers is Martin Armstrong. With that, here’s a later article: Bonds & Climate Change.

Bits and Pieces: Online retailing in perspective:

That gives the scale. This one gives the sense of early automation:

Trump will be successful in re-shoring companies. There will be few jobs to return, however. The old factories are leveled or converted to other uses. The new factories will be highly automated with the latest generation of robots and artificial intelligence systems. A primary driver of re-shoring is the ability of companies to maintain a higher standard of quality control over product inputs.

In contrast are the traditional ‘bricks-and-mortar’ retailers: Macy’s, Kohl’s Crash After Reporting Abysmal Holiday Sales; Cut Guidance; Announce Mass Layoffs, Store Closures and Sears Holdings Posts Another Ugly Loss: Bankruptcy Looms Ahead.

Looking at the global economy, what can possibly go wrong: Global Debt Hits 325% Of World GDP, Rises To Record $217 Trillion?

A warning for Canadians: The Canada Experiment: Is This the World’s First ‘Postnational’ Country? Garbage from The Guardian.

Bits and Pieces – 20170102, Monday

Commentary: Martin Armstrong whom I am still assessing has changed his perspective on 2017 to one that is more positive: 2017 is Looking More Optimistic Than Ever. If you read it you might wonder “this is optimism”. His model shows things really come apart in 2018 so enjoy this new year. He touches on 2018 in this post: Everything is Connected – Connecting the Dots, and identifies a key element of the disruption as the failure of socialism in the world (that includes Canada).

Civil Unrest: Civil unrest comes not only from the reemergence of the violent left but of the breakdown of social order on a broad scale. Here’s the latest from the cradle of Democratic municipal government (not Detroit): Chicago Violence Worst In 20 Years: “Not Seen This Level Of Disrespect For Police Ever”.

Trump: Here is a provocative view of the election and of trump’s relationship with the elite: Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him.

Obama: An assessment of Obama’s record: Obama’s Failed Presidency.

Fake News and Propaganda: More from a reliable source contributing fake news: Washington Post Caught Spreading More Fake News About “Russian Hackers”.

Cyber Warfare: Call it paranoia or call it propaganda by the administration to create trouble for Trump, the following claim was quickly discredited: Russian Hackers Said To “Penetrate US Electricity Grid” Using Outdated Ukrainian Malware. If anyone can reliably comment on the feasance of Russian hacking it would be John McAfee, the founder of the company of that name that provides anti-virus and anti-malware protection software. Whether the primary source lies at Obama’s feet or whether the CIA is operating in the US in its traditional covert role: “Something Stinks” – Like Iraq WMD Fiasco, Russia Story Doesn’t Add Up.

Bits and Pieces: Here is an interesting essay on rthe real hack of the US 2016 election: How George Soros Destroyed the Democratic Party. Here’s an interesting perspective on Turkey from a site that I’m as of today, paying more attention to: Turkey’s “Long Arm” in Europe.

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: It looks like Monday is the showdown at the OK coral. Martin Armstrong has two commentaries on the battle shaping up between the left and the Democratic camp against Trump: Democrats Desperate to Steal Election from Trump at All Costs and Hatred of the Left Continues to Set Stage for Revolution. Their new tactic is intimidation: “Bullet In The Mouth” – Trump Electors Flooded With Death Threats.

The GOP maintains that their electors, excepting one or two, are standing fast: “They Are Standing Strong By The Will Of Our Voters” – GOP Crushes Democrats’ Hopes, Confirms Electors Back Trump. And destroying any shred of credibility he has left: Senator Lindsey Graham Says Russia Hacked His Presidential Campaign Account.

Main Stream Media (MSM): Fake news seems to be the news of the day. It may be becoming the new face of propganda and media control: George Soros Is Funding Facebook’s “Third-Party Fact Checking” Organization Targeting “Fake News”.

Cyber Warfare: This would seem to be the definitive word on the “Russian hack”: NSA Whistleblower Destroys Obama’s Russia Narrative – “Hard Evidence Points To An Inside Leak, Not Hacking”, leaving the question open as to what is Obama up to? In late news, FBI Said To Back CIA Assessment That Russia Intervened To Help Trump Win. Note the line “In addition to “helping Trump win”, the CIA and FBI officials believe Moscow’s other goal included undermining confidence in the U.S. electoral system.” Ask yourself if the Russians have even come close to this in comparison to what the actions of the MSM, Democrats, Obama, Jill Stein, and the left in general have done in their attempts to overthrow the electoral college system.

Climate: Having largely defined ‘Fake news’, in part by becoming one of its best purveyors, the Washington Post moves to climate science: The latest climate ‘conspiracy theory’.

Bits and Pieces – 20161108, Tuesday

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: News-wise it’s quiet prior to election results. We are preparing to make a bold prediction tomorrow as to whom shall be the next US president. The topic today with the most articles we found concerns MSM bias. The wide-spread reporting of numerous cases of bias has probably permanently damaged their position in the eyes of many. Whether it has any effect on their bottom line will be something to watch for over the next quarter when earnings are reported.

Bits and Pieces – 20161107, Monday

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: We think we can create an earliest scenario for the hot or kinetic phase of WWIII. Obama’s last day as president is Jan. 20,2017. Between now and then, everything he does will be based on how it affects his legacy. Starting WWIII is not a good legacy If a group within the military or intelligence community want to start earlier, they will have to stage a significant false flag event. The election has been prepped for this but we don’t think whatever is the outcome will provide sufficient justification, particularly in light of widespread pre-election scrutiny.

We think that if Trump is elected, he will at least try and talk with Putin and possibly deescalate the standoff in Eastern Europe between the AE and NATO and Russia. Hillary (can’t we just drone the guy) Clinton on the other hand is a much more hard-lined in favour of armed conflict (Hillary Clinton supported all of America’s imperial wars: Writer) and in opposing Russia. Under Clinton we see a very real chance of a kinetic war with Russia, especially given the continued buildup of NATO forces on Russia’s borders, something the US would never tolerate (remember the Cuban Missile Crisis?).

We think, however, that Hillary will need at least a couple of months in office to to staff key positions, restructure any institutions necessary, purge any military officers and intelligence officials left that Obama has not already purged (an out-of-date list is: List Of Military Elite Purged And Fired Under Obama, Compiled By General Paul Vallely, 3-17-14.) and prepare the American public for war. So late spring at the earliest.

Traditionally, the Federal Reserve does everything in its power to not rock the boat leading into an election. Consequently, markets are in an artificial state. Expect to see some major market swings as markets adjust and the Fed begins to make truthful (as much as it ever can) assessments of the economy. The key thing to watch going forward is whether they will raise the Fed Funds Rate 25 basis points as they have been trying to do for months. The global economy is slowing and many US economic indicators are pointing downwards. If they don’t, in their desperation make the rate increase in Dec. it is difficult to see when they will be able to. Keep in mind that raising rates has been their traditional way of cooling an overheated economy which is not the case now. In other words they stand the risk of inducing a recession more quickly than the business cycle would do.

Otherwise there’s not much news to report.
