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:

Commentary: This edition of Bits and Pieces is rather long in the tooth and perhspd less coherent than usual.

Commentary: There’s enough material on Trump’s trade war to warrant a small release of Bits and Pieces.

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: In law, hearsay carries little weight. It is the “he said … she said” conundrum. When it comes down to a person’s word, it actually carries little weight. When it might, the credibility of witnesses is attacked vigorously, especially when no other proof of position is available.

A moment of illumination occurred tonight as I watched a video in which the commentator pointed out that there is no evidence that Trump uttered the “shithole” remark about countries that the expression aptly describes. Apparently, the assertion that he made it comes from the Washington Post, a demonstrably anti-Trump source of “fake news”, whose reporters were present at a White House meeting. No audio or video record of the meeting has come to light although the White House has said that they have such, being now standard practice to record all meetings.

That the MSM and the Liberal intelligentsia have had an orgasm over the attributed comment is of no surprise. What really hit me though was the fact that I had assumed the comment was true without any thought or question. I hope I will be more vigilant in the future, even if I do not report anything on the the issue I am considering as s the case here..

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 – 20171112, Sunday

Commentary: A common theme that my wife and I discuss is the general we encounter incompetence on a daily basis. As an example, when we moved, our bank provided new cheques as requested but they coded them for a dormant and empty savings account. It came to my attention when the first cheque bounced. It cost me several hours and some momentary anxiety to fix the bank’s error, apologize to people that I had sent cheques to, pursue reimbursement of NSF fees both for myself and my vendors, etc. I left a bank official wondering how they issued cheques on an account that had no chequing privileges.
