Bits and Pieces – 20170528, Sunday

Commentary: Question of the day, when the pot calls the kettle black, is the pot black? For the answer: Obama Administration Intervened in Canadian, British, and French elections. 🙂

Civil Unrest: A note on Neil Howe’s Fourth Turning: The Fourth Turning’s Neil Howe Warns: We Are In The 1930s, “Winter Is Coming”.

The Deep State: From a friend, we received this wonderful summery of the events that form the basis of the soft coup in progress in progress in the US: Regime Change by Any Other Name? And Trump is starting to fight back: Amid Russia Crisis, Trump Prepares “War Room”, “Big White House Changes”, Loss Of Twitter.

WWIII: There has not been a lot of news on the North Korean fromt other than a couple of successful ballistic missile tests (make that 3 counting today’s) since my predicted start of war on Apr. 25. The latter as much a result of incomplete information to base a deduction on. More recently the US added a second carrier strike group and today we learn a third is on the way: US Deploys Third Aircraft Carrier Toward North Korea. Why so much fire power? As I recall, a single strike group launched the Iraq war.

The American Empire (AE): A month in the life of the foreign legions: US On Track To Kill More Syrian Civilians Than Russia For 5th Straight Month.

Climate: Here’s an excellent article on glaciers in the Holocene which shows how variable the climate has been over the last ten thousand years: Nature Unbound III – Holocene climate variability (Part B). The takeaway is that the debate on climate change or global warming or whatever the current fashionable progressive term is is woefully limited and short-sighted.

Bits and Pieces:  Canada corner: The Toronto real estate bubble may have popped:  All Hell Breaks Loose In Toronto’s House Price Bubble. A little hyperbole but there are threads here that may cascade into a major financial crisis. Here’s an article on Canadian house prices: New Home Prices Are Over 50% Higher In Canada Than The US.

Not my problem: Global Pension Underfunding Will Hit Nearly Half A Quadrillion Dollars In 2050. Long, long before 2050, fundamental aspects of this problem will have been dealt with. In fact each year we go on ballooning central bank balance sheets and credit market debt at all levels is one year of grace before financial Armageddon.

I wonder what the fallout of this will be: “You Tricked Me” – Trump Reportedly Rages At Palestine’s Abbas For ‘Lying To Him’?

Commentary: Trump has to pay for his foreign wars somehow, but what will his base think of this: Trump’s Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%?

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….

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 – 20170326, Sunday

The Deep State: The Russian hacking straw-man continues to collapse: The Evidence That Russia Hacked the DNC Is Collapsing. The Deep State’s position is based on a report from CrowdStrike which in turn has come under scrutiny by independent minds: What Is CrowdStrike? Firm Hired By DNC Has Ties To Hillary Clinton, A Ukrainian Billionaire, And Google and DNC ‘Russian Hacking’ Conclusion Comes from Google-Linked Firm.

On another front, although we may never come to publicly know who did what at whose request, Trump was spied on by the US intelligence community: Nunes Confirms There Was “Incidental Surveillance” Of Trump During Obama Administration, “Seems To Be Inappropriate”. Note that he continues to be investigated through “multiple FISA wntarras” – your Deep State in action preserving Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Late news: NSA To Provide “Smoking Gun” Proof Obama Spied On Trump.

From others on this topic:“Much Worse Than Watergate”, Former CIA Officer Admits Trump ‘Wiretapping’ Likely True, the players for the Deep State that rushed to brand Trump’s allegations of wire tapping, continue to find their position is in trouble and possibly deep trouble: NSA Whistleblower Says NSA Spied On Congress, The Supreme Court And Trump.

Bits and Pieces: Confirmation bias enshrined in academia: In anti-intellectual email, Wellesley profs call engaging with controversial arguments an imposition on students lest students be encoraged to think for themselves. Pity the poor snowflakes.

Bits and Pieces – 20160115, Wednesday

Commentary: It’s always been a matter of timing. We have a fairly good ability to predict where the next “big one” will hit but few ever get the timing right. The collapse of the housing bubble in the US in 2007 was forecast by many. A habdul of people actually got the timing right and were paid handsomely for their effort. Many say that we are in a stock market bubble in the US, in a bond market bubble, that we have a credit market bubble. The EU is fraught with financial fault lines.

Today I came across a short essay by Howard Kunstler: Made For Each Other. In it, he argues that our financial system is the least well-grounded to survive the coming debt ceiling debate in the US and the geopolitical turmoil from elections in the EU this year. Victor Sperandeo forecast 10 days ago in a KWN interview: ALERT: Former Soros Associate Just Warned We Are About To Witness ‘Absolute F*cking Chaos’ Across The Globe, that the EU elections would cause a major crisis in late March or April.

Trump: Commentary on the dissention within the ranks of the Deep State: Trump’s Enemies Within. And then there are the enemies without: Is Soros The Source Of Funds Behind The “Muslim Ban” Lawsuits? A small historic event: DeVos Confirmed As Education Secretary After Pence Casts First Ever VP Tiebreaking Vote.

WWIII: A good observation comes from Steve Bannon quoted in: Steve Bannon: ‘We’re going to war in the South China Sea … no doubt’. He pegs Islam and China as the two geopolitical antagonists because they are expansionist in ambition.

“You have an expansionist Islam and you have an expansionist China. Right? They are motivated. They’re arrogant. They’re on the march. And they think the Judeo-Christian west is on the retreat,”

Here’s an insightful review of events in Eastern Europe from the 20th century to date. The dangers of WWIII emerging from the breakup of the EU are real: Eastern Europe & World War III.

Climate: In 2015, a paper came out of NOAA that allegedly debunked the “hiatus” observation in global temperature increse. Here are two references that show that the paper was deeply flawed scientifically and politically motivated to support the Obama administrations support for the Paris agreement: ClimateGate 2 – NOAA Whistleblower Claims World Leaders Fooled By Fake Global Warming Data and Climate scientists versus climate data.

Bits and Pieces: More MSM bias if you’re interested: Why Is the New York Times Lying about Trump? And then this piece from a Fox News interviewer: “But he’s a killer though. Putin’s a killer.” (read Trump Defends “Killer” Putin On National TV: “We’ve Got A Lot Of Killers – You Think Our Country’s So Innocent?”). Well let’s start with Bush and Obama with their foreign wars and particularly their drone policies.

The collapse of Catholicism in Quebec parallels the collapse of the traditional social structure in Canada: Quebec: The Crisis Of The West.

Here’s a historical summary of US currency manipulation: Trump Tower Accord to Replace Plaza Accord?. Note the observation that when the euro destructs, the dollar will soar. Normally gold moves inversely w.r.t. the dollar. In this case it move with the dollar as a safe haven for euro funds.

I save links to articles on robotics and automation (I’m well over 100 and this is passive collecting). To give you an idea where things are at and where they are headed fast, read Amazon Plans Robotic Supermarket Staffed by 3; Chinese Factory Eliminate 90% of Humans, Defects Drop 80%. The world has too many people. The amount of human labour that we have is excessive by far and becoming increasingly more so. This is the argument for stopping all immigration and not accepting more refugees. They are a already a net liability. The article also tells you who Loblaws’ biggest competitor will be in the near future (5-10 years) – Amazon. I don’t see any serious competitor for Amazon – a well-named company.

Facts on US immigration for the anti-Trump crowd: As The Political Spin Continues, Here Are Some Key Facts About Refugees And The U.S.

Bits and Pieces – 20170204, Saturday

Commentary: I am amazed at the extent and the virulence of the hatred for Trump globally. This is an unprecedented phenomenon, at least in my memory. We had it locally (in Canada) with the hatred of Stephen Harper. That same hatred and coming from the same people, has joined a global lynch mob. Which brings me to my third prediction that I made last spring (that Trump will be assassinated. The first was that he would gain the Republican nomination and my second was that he would be elected): Secret Service Is Dealing With Over 12,000 Tweets Calling For Trump’s Assassination. The Deep State may only need to sit back and wait. When have calls for the assassination of a sitting president ever been so widespread: Village Magazine Sparks Furor Asking “Why Not” Assassinate Donald Trump, Will Donald Trump be assassinated, ousted in a coup or just impeached, etc.?

This weekend, a 13-year old friend of my grandson was comparing Trump to Hitler. This kid has no historical knowledge to generate such a belief so it’scoming from adults around him. You may know such people. Here is a short article that explains why such a comparison is not justified in any degree: Putting An End To This Hitler Nonsense….

Cycles: Gordon T. Long and Charles Hugh-Smith discuss cycles and “the great rotation” the point where all the cycles in all aspects of our society reach a peak on an addative basis and head downwards: MACRO ANALYTICS – 01 27 17 – The Great Rotation – w/Charles Hugh. These guys understand our economic and social reality.

Climate: I have just become aware of an admission from the UN as to what the real agenda is behind climate change politics: Global Warming is About Destroying Capitalism?. It is about creating a new world economic order and not “saving” the environment. Many of us have understood this for a long time but it is the first time it has been admitted in public. Here’s a direct reference form the UN: Figueres: First time the world economy is transformed intentionally. Note that this occurred two years ago today (let’s have an anniversary celebration of global Marxism). Another review of the remarks of which there were many at the time: UN’s Top Climate Official: Goal Is To ‘Intentionally Transform the Economic Development Model’.

Bits and Pieces – 20170202, Thursday

Commentary: I am looking for key themes that will have a major impact on our lives. I’m adding one this morning: central banks. Central banks have been controlling our economy since their conception only now they are losing control as all their tools are broken and they are in the process of blowing up the (economic) world.

I have discussed how we are linear thinkers, so to go non-linear, central bank policy and action has to be considered with interest rates, the bond market, currencies, the international flow of funds and trade. They are all part of the same elephant. How I’m going to structure my coverage I’m not sure but here’s a good short article to start with: The Coming Crisis in Central Banking.

To give an idea of the interconnection, read Mike Shedlock’s Is Germany a Currency Manipulator? China? Arguably Yes, Under Bill Obama Signed: Full Blown Currency War on Deck. He outlines a basis for how a currency war and trade war might start with Germany and China.

Commentary: I’m pondering how to make my news reading and reporting more effective for myself – it’s currently taking up too much time and retrieving information from my site is not as effective as I had hoped. So look for changes.

In trying to understand the thoughtless position of the left, I came up with the notion of a ‘narrative’. A narrative is a belief system by which we operate. I’m sure this is a concept well explored academically and I may be using a term that I read somewhere. It’s more than an ideology, something which it subsumes. It manifests in behavior such as passive or aggressive. Religion would be a narrative. I’m comfortable with this one because it arguably goes back to the early days of humankind. It is responsible for Stonehenge, burial practices going back at least several thousand years, and more.

Today, Scott Adams discusses two “filters” in his blog post  The Persuasion Filter and Immigration. Apart from being a brilliant analysis of Trump’s behavior and operating strategy, it provides a perspective for the recent “Muslim ban”. What is really interesting is that events are moving so fast that we will likely be able to test Adans’ hypothesis in real time over the next couple of weeks. As a bonus, it gives me things to ponder fro my narative thesis.
