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

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 – 20170320, Monday

Commentary: We sold our house late last week and have been preoccupied with related issues. Life is now returning to normal whatever that is.

I have voiced a concern about the structural unemployment coming due to robotics, auto,ation and artificial intelligence (RAAI). Today I publish links to articles on the psychological and sociological, particularly on men. Also, by now you understand that although these are often treated as vertical issues explored by linear deterministic thinking and models, the reality is that these are aspects of a deeply complex system.

What We’re Reading Today

Civil Unrest: Look for more when we have such advocates as Micheal Moore: Michael Moore Urges Civil Disobedience At Trump’s Inauguration, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Lot Worse”.

Fake News and Propaganda: Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law. Keeping you up to date: Mainstream Media Is Now Whining About The “Fake News” Hysteria It Created.

Trump: Recall that leading up to the Brexit vote, the establishment was flooding the media with dire predictions of economic collapse and social armageddon. And then none of it happened. The Trump phenomenon has remarkable parallels to Brexit including the post-Trump effects such as Trump Brings Consumer Confidence to 13 Year High.

Russia: Obama seems bent on doing as much damage as he can, while he can: Obama Set To Announce Economic Sanctions And “Covert Cyber Ops” Against Russia For “Election Hacking”. And then he pulls the trigger: US Retaliates Against Russia For “Hacking The Election”: Expels 35 Diplomats, Unveils Sanctions with the response: Russia Warns Of “Proportional Response” To Obama’s “Paranoia”.

Bits and Pieces: Here’s an article on Obama’s exit, stage left (an appropriate metaphor): A Loser’s Malice: What’s Behind Obama’s Attacks On Putin.

This we include simply because it’s interesting – North American retail destinations by age: At What Age Do You Outgrow IKEA?.

Concerning US assets in Syria: Russia: Mass Graves Full Of Tortured Civilians Discovered In Aleppo. Imagine if the US had used something other than “moderate” rebels. By the way, have you seen this reported in the MSM?

Belatedly, we publish this essay from Paul Merkley: FAREWELL TO OSLO. Paul raises th4 issue of the extermination of Middle east Christians.He also discusses the Palestinian issue and the two state proposal.

Finally, a target for Trudeau to aspire to and with his world traveling under the guise of diplomacy, he’s well under way: Obama’s Vacation Costs Expected To Top $90 Million Over 8 Years.

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: It is 5:40 pm and I thought Id, give you an update on the electoral college vote: Electoral College Update: Where The Vote Stands As Of 4:50 PM ET. At this point he is two votes shy of the 270 he officially needs. Hillary is way back at 160 which suggests the soft coup has fizzled out. In an act of electoral defiance, Hillary may not come out with the numbers that she went in with: More Electors Mutiny Against Hillary: Three Cast Votes For Colin Powell, One For “Faith Spotted Eagle”. Now that’s gotta hurt. She lost a vote to “Faith Spotted Eagle”. Here’s another: First “Faithless Elector” Emerges In Minnesota, Refuses To Vote For Hillary Clinton.
After all the dirty tricks and electoral fraud (recall that the Michigan recount could not go ahead because of discrepancies in one thord of Wayne County precincts that went heavily for Hillary).

I wish the Clinton’s would get it together on who cost Hillary the election (other than Hillary herself: President Obama suggests Hillary Clinton is to blame for stunning election loss.) Was it Comey: Bill Clinton: “James Comey Cost Her The Election”? Was it Huma Abedin: New scapegoat for Hillary Clinton loss: Huma Abedin? And Obama is still obsessing about the Russians Hillary Clinton blames Russian hacking for loss as Barack Obama vows response. There are othe scapegoats to choose from: Bill Clinton blames ‘angry white men’ for Hillary’s loss on Election Day. After all, white men are the only ethnic group you can trash without fear of repercussion.

And as I sign off at6:13: Donald Trump Seals Electoral College Victory, Officially Becomes 45th US President.

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 – 20161212, Monday

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: The Democrat strategy may be emerging. A coordination disinformation campaign to blame Russia for influencing and actively intervening (hacking) in the electoral process to discredit Hillary, for the purpose of swaying electoral college votes from Trump to Hillary. Here’s a good summary:

and this would explain: Clinton Campaign, Top Democrats Call For Intel Briefing, Commission Ahead Of Electoral College Vote. This is a true Charlie Brown moment where Lucy (the MSM and Democratic establishment) is holding the football (believe the CIA report) for Charlie (the public).

On the topic: FBI Disputes CIA’s “Fuzzy And Ambiguous” Claims That Russia Sought To Influence Presidential Election.

Climate: Trump, if inaugerated, may issue in a more balanced approach to the politics and economics of climate science: Shifting sands of the climate debate.

Bits and Pieces: One more apple cart for Trump to upset: Iran Warns Of “World War, The Destruction Of Israel”, If Trump Tears Up Nuclear Pact. When Trump won, I was greatly relieved, putting my nuclear preparedness on the back burner. Unfortunately Trump seems to have turned the back burner on low with China, but Iran would advance it to medium. If he decides to continue the recent re-engagement that Obama has created in Syria and adopt Hillary’s playbook of a no-fly zone, them it moves to high.

On another note: Trump’s Wisconsin Victory Confirmed – Gained Net 162 Votes In Statewide Recount. Way to go Jill!

Are we setting up for an executive pardon: Hillary Begs For Benghazi Lawsuit Dismissal While Plaintiffs Blast “Special Favors” For “Political Elite”? But this one’s not going so well: xPA Judge Denies Recount And Blasts Stein’s “Suspicions Of Hacking” That “Border On Irrational”.

I guess that any car left on the street overnight in Detroit will now be legally drivable: Michigan Legalizes Car Sales With No Steering Wheel or Brake Pedal.
