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 – 20170314, Tuesday

Commentary: Last post I presented the idea that the left actively seeks a totalitarian state. Here’s an article that suggests that we may already be there: Welcome to Totalitarian America, President Trump! This idea might marry the narrative of the Deep State with a number of other narratives: the militarization of police forces; the large scale military exercises conducted in American cities in the last few years; the complete control over personal communications by the various branches of the intelligence community (NSA, CIA); the subjugation of the economic interests of the American people to those of Wall Street; and so on.

I had concluded years ago that democracy by its nature, is a phase in a cycle: democracy -> socialism -> totalitarianism ->  revolution -> democracy. The reason is that democracy allows politicians to promise and provide socialist entitlements in return for being elected and retaining self-rewarding (corruption in the extreme) power. As socialist programs pile up creating a socialist democracy, the cost of the socialist programs eventually reaches the point (we are there now – Ontario’s medical system; massive deficits and debt) where they must collapse with widespread civil unrest. This leads to repressive control of the population and suspension of constitutional and civil rights, and the democratic process. At this point the state has become totalitarian leading to the eventual emergence of resistance which for survival becomes increasingly militant and violent. Eventually revolution results. At this point democracy may seem the best option for the future  (we’ll do it right this time).

As a final note, I have an extensive commentary on money that emerged as I wrote this. It would be worth your while to rea and understand some of the issues around an asset that you think you have control over but don’t.

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.

Commentary: Today I wish to comment on only one theme, the soft coup the Deep State in the US is waging against the administration, primarily through the intelligence community. The primary attack is coming via allegations of collusion with the Russian bogeyman in various forms and is well laid out here: How ‘New Cold Warriors’ Cornered Trump. After reading this, read this article: The Resurrection of Armageddon — Paul Craig Roberts. In it he discusses the motivations of the Deep State to risk nuclear war.

Related commentary and news includes:

  1. “This Is Either The Most Elaborate Cover-Up Of All Time, Or The Dumbest”.
  2. The media bias in persecuteing Trump is reflected by this article: Russian Ambassador At The Center Of The Sessions’ Scandal Visited Obama White House 22 Times.
  3. “It’s A Witchhunt” – Russia Slams “Malicious Campaign” Waged By Unknown Americans To Damage Ties.

Understanding the above provides a wonderful clarity of insight into much of the activity in the media and the actions of key Republican and Democrat Deep State actors. It is far from clear if Trump can survive this attack from the establishment or if, surviving it, he will be an effectual president. This is the central game being played in the US going forward. Nothing else matters.

Bits and Pieces – 20170219, Sunday

The Deep State: I came across this article on Jim Quinn’s The Burning Platform blog: DHS INSIDER SAYS IT’S SPY VS SPY. The article discusses the split in the intelligence community – a major component of the Deep State – between those who support the president and those who want to overthrow him. A news item that I had barely taken note of and dismissed called “PizzaGate”, is discussed as “PedoGate”, a pedophilia resort run by the CIA and the Israeli Mossad to capture videos of high-ranking politicians having sex with minors to  use as leverage over them. The article also sheds light on the background for US Mideast policy and war, the reasons for the antagonistic approach to Russia, and relationships with Israel and Saudi Arabia.

By the way, WJC are the initials of Bill Clinton. I had previously read an article or two referencing Bill’s taking a 13-year old girl to a resort Island, an event where the Secret Service was told to stay away from.

Bits and Pieces – 20170217, Friday

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.

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.

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: Jill Stein is having her problem unless the object of her game is to gain recognition and raise money as many suggest. Trump gained a few votes in the Wisconsin recount. The Pennsylvania recount has been quashed, but Michigan is the interesting recount. It is reported (Half of Detroit votes may be ineligible for recount) that “One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results because of problems with ballots.” Remember that these precincts went heavily for Hillary. Has this uncovered massive electoral fraud favouring Hillary? In any case the recount has been terminated. Is this the smoking gun for the argument that Russia was supporting Hillary?

The Soft Coup: In yesterday’s addendum, Bits and Pieces – 20161212, Monday Addendum, I brought forward an idea that I had just encountered: that a soft coup was in progress. So many of the recent actions of Obama and establishment figures of both parties that at first had seemed bizarre, suddenly fell into place. And here’s how it’s coming together: The ‘Soft Coup’ Builds: “More ‘Electors’ Demand Russian Interference Briefing Before They Vote. If the coup should be successful and the electoral college vote is tipped towards Hillary, expect chaos. It seems that the population is actually warming to trump: Consumer Confidence Highest Since Before Great Recession.

Current progress: Harvard Professor Says He’s Rallied Nearly Enough GOP Electors To Block Trump. Since these electors are almost all from states that went Hillary, it is difficult to understand how any meeting with the CIA can affect their voting since they are already voting Democrat. Am I missing something?

Trump team: More: Trump Picks Rick Perry To Lead Energy Department (That He Wanted To Do Away With In 2011) and It’s Official: Trump Picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson To Lead The State Department. This article makes some good points as to why Tillerson is a good choice: Rex Tillerson: “Russian Spy” Or Diplomatic Genius?. Instead of making incestuous appointments to party insiders like Obama, Trump appears to be assembling a team with deep experience in the areas of appointment, capable of making anti-establishment changes. Real change is coming.

WWIII: Keep this on your radar. If you believe the risk is significant, are you ready for it: NATO-Russia War Seen As Top “Conflict” Risk For 2017 By CFR?

Bits and Pieces: Charles Hugh-Smith, champion of the notion of the deep state, updates his views: Is The Deep State At War… With Itself? Along this line, not only the FBI but the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (the top of the intelligence pyramid)  refuses to back the CIA claim of Russian interferrence: Top US Spy Agency Refuses To Endorse CIA’s Russian Hacking Assessment Due To “Lack Of Evidence”. Here’s another pers[ective: Is CIA Trying to Cover Its Own Hack or Accommodating Obama?.

Mike Shedlock follows what’s happening in countries position’s on global trade and in particular, free trade agreements and trade wars. Here’s his take on the trade war between the US and China. It won’t get better under Trump: Global Trade War Baked in the Cake: Boeing Faces China’s Wrath. We’re going to need Kevin O’Leary as PM. That would be extremely fitting: two TV reality stars across the table from each other. Otherwise, Trump will have Trudeau and Canada’s lunch as a morning snack with coffee. Meanwhile, study the ‘Chinese gambit’: Head Of US Pacific Fleet Ready To Confront Beijing As China Warns Of US Carmaker Penalty For “Monopolist Behavior”.

From George Friedman, a good analysis of Russian military capability: Forecasting Russia in 2017. The economic picture is the primary driver.

Bits and Pieces – 20161212, Monday Addendum

As I have mulled over what I have read today it has become clear that a truly historic event is in progress in the US. The establishment consisting of both Democrats – the DNC – and some key Republicans such as McCain and Graham, aided by the mainstream media are staging a soft coup in the US. And their instrument of choice in this process is the one institution with deep experienced in engineering coups of all kinds (and assassinations) around the world: the CIA.

The irony is that they are now doing it on home soil, a jurisdiction that they are not mandated to operate in. And they are operating in full view with their disinformation  campaign. There should be grounds for widespread treason investigations and charges if Trump survives this attack and decides to clean house. This will be revolutionary.

If you accept this thesis, then sit back and enjoy the show.

What We’re Reading Today

Commentary: I’m going to feature a concept that I have been chewing on for a while. The idea is that each revolution in human productivity rising with the industrial revolution has displaced a huge number of workers. People that try and dispel the fear that such job losses create unemployment argue that the technology of the revolution spawns new jobs in new industries that absorb the displaced labour force. While this has been apparently true in recent times, such people miss a key point.

Each technological revolution creates jobs that require a higher level of education/training and skill than the laid off workers have. This has become identifiable in the “knowledge revolution” where the required skill and education levels have moved up to requiring community college or university degrees.

To get an idea of the current state of employment in the US and by inference, Canada and other developed countries, read: Paul Craig Roberts – The Matrix Of Lies And What The Elite Are Really Up To Is Terrifying. In short the government defines the employment rate in a manner that excludes a large number of employable people while burying the fact that a lot of the jobs do not pay a living wage.

To see what’s coming next, read: Rise Of The Machines: Millions Of American Jobs Will Be Wiped Out In The Next Five Years. Government pronouncements of creating jobs are delusional. Bringing in a large immigrant population because we need their skillsdoes not change the current number of unemployed but increases the future number of unemployed when and immigrant lucky to land a job is displaced in the future. Programs like the 35,000 refugees with their education and skill levels simply moves the crisi forward in time.

Finally, the strongest argument supporting the idea of the start of a large permanently unemployed segment of society comes from the nature of the final stage of the industrial revolution that we are now in. The core product of this stage is the creation of labour and service units, growing in sophistication, that will displace large numbers of workers previously thought immune to automation.
