Economic Warfare

Sanctions and Blockades

Here is an article that explains how sanctions can be used as a weapon of military warfare with actions by the US as an examples: Iran Sanctions: A Reminder Of How America Militarized The Financial System.

Bits and Pieces – 20180117, Wednesday

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 – 20170610 – Saturday

Commentary: Trump is right about NATO: the Europeans, particularly the Germans have been riding on Uncle Sam’s coattails. Britain and Russia have one thing in common, their major wars over the last 2 or 3 hundred years have been with the French and the Germans. Merkel’s EU has been playing hardball over Brexit. Britain should form closer ties with Russia and leave NATO since their adversary is the EU, meaning France and Germany.

Here’s an interesting prediction. I follow the site King World News. Reading past Eric Kings habit of being stuck in the superlative mode of everything, he interviews a few people that I consider reliable. One is Andrew Maguire of whom he published a most recent post on June 9. Maguire states that in exactly 26 days from “today”, a dramatic event will take place in the metals market repricing gold higher. The problem is King doesn’t explicitly state when the interview occurred so “today” remains a bit elusive.

If we use the 9th as “today”, 26 days puts the event on July 5, the day after independence day which falls on a Tuesday. Traditionally, trading falls off during the summer (hence “sell in May and go away”). This year, many traders will also take the Monday off with markets closed on Tuesday. If one wanted to make a move when traders were thin, one might choose the 3rd or the 4th. On the other hand, one might want to schedule a move for the 5th to catch markets as the open and take advantage of the market response on a full trading day. It also might be that the call is bad and nothing happens.

I will bet on a good call although my move a few days before makes things a bit tricky. Here’s the interview: ALERT: Unknown Entity Deletes Portion Of Whistleblower Andrew Maguire’s KWN Audio Interview About A Major Event In 26 Days. If you want to place a bet it should be in by June 30.

Commentary: Home and catching up. Interesting development in the Middle East with: The Shocking Trigger Behind Today’s Gulf Scandal: Qatar Paid Al-Qaeda, Iran $1BN In Hostage Deal. Since Qatar is one of the dominant financiers of terrorism along with Saudi Arabia, will this reduce it to any degree? Also: It’s A “Geopolitical Earthquake”: A Stunned World Responds After Saudi Alliance Cuts All Ties With Qatar. Here’s an analysis of the issues behind this flareup (it’s not terrorism-related): “Forget Terrorism”: The Real Reason Behind The Qatar Crisis Is Natural Gas.

I read two interesting articles today that put me into some exciting thinking. The first is Facebook is Broken, and the second, How to see past your own perspective and find truth. Social media physical networks are defined by the computer science algorithms that are used to build them. The articles point to another class of algorithms that control the content and its dissemination. These algorithms define the social structure of the social media. It is interesting to contemplate that social structure and organization is based on algorithms. What these might have been before the internet is a question that then arises. The role of individual behavior in the algorithms would be a central part to examine (well-defined complex systems).

Commentary: I am still confounded by the phenomenon of Trump hatred in Canada. First of all, he is not our president, and who or what he is and what he does is really none of our business beyond what impact his policies might have on Canada. When confronted on their hatred, people shuffle their feet and mumble a few multi-syllabic words that they have learned from the CBC. I have referred to the psychic energy that they have stored up, without understanding its source. Today a piece slipped into place.  But a little sideways trip first.

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: I went looking for, and found, a word that I have never encountered in use: misandry. I suspect that there is ample opportunity in our present culture for its use, especially applied to those who would use its sister term, misogyny.
