Bits and Pieces – 20171229, Friday

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.

WWIII: The duplicity of the West over the aggressive expansion of NATO into Eastern Europe, long referenced by many without formal documentation, is finally confirmed: `SORRY CHUMP. YOU DIDN’T HAVE IT IN WRITING’.

And not coincidentally: ‘Pentagon Papers’-Leaker Warns, US Is “Close To Nuclear Armageddon”.

The American Empire (AE): If an area on the periphery becomes too quiet, stir the pot: In Unexpected Move, Trump Enacts Obama-era Law Opening US Arms Sales To Ukraine. And the Russian response: Putin Warns “Russia Has Right To Respond” To US Military Buildup, Hints At Use Of Nuclear Weapons.

Climate: Here is a site devoted to what might be called energy issues associated with anthropogenic global warming (AGW): Alliance for Wise Energy Decision. Their most recent issue is devoted to the deleterious effects of wind energy: Energy & Environmental Newsletter: December 18, 2017 and has a list of links to articles on the subject. Here are Martin Armstrong’s latest comments on global cooling: The Sun is Cooling Faster than Anyone Suspected. Track sunspots here.

Of interest is the cause of a massive insect species dieoff. It’s due to deforestation and not global warming: A different dimension of loss’: inside the great insect die-off.

Admittedly this a weather event and not a climate event but lest the AGW crowd try to lay the blame for it at the feet of global warming one might dare ask “Do you really mean global cooling?”Snowmageddon Dumps Record 60 Inches Of Snow On Erie, PA; “Declaration Of Disaster”
Further: Arctic Blast Leaves 200 Million Americans In Record-Smashing, Freezing Temperatures. At this rate with the rate of global warming, we’ll ne in a new ice age by 2050.

Bits and Pieces: Martin Armstrong comments on Bitcoin as a currency: Bitcoin = Money, Commodity, or Shares?. The real test of the idea I would propose as: can you conduct your first 5 transactions of the day in Bitcoin such as getting gas, washing your clothes at the laundromat, paying your taxes at city hall, buying groceries or buying cookies from the girl guide at the door?

This story has been brewing for a while: The Racist Subtext Of Philly’s Ban On Bulletproof Glass In Convenience Stores. The issue is that bullet-proof glass in black neighbourhoods is thought to demean the black citizens implying that they are the source of gun violence. Now who would have thunk that?

The trend to the re-population of the inner city core is reversing with millennials heading for the suburbs: Exodus Starts: Millennials Ditch City Life. This poses a problem for transportation policy and traffic congestion.

Obama, the Nobel laureate of peace who, as commander-on-chief, conducted foreign wars throughout his entire presidency, is increasingly having his dirty laundry inspected: Congress To Investigate Obama Efforts To Thwart A DEA Investigation Of Hezbollah Drug Trafficking , Lapid: If Obama protected Hezbollah over Iran deal, he should give back Nobel, and the Uranium One deal: Hillary In The Crosshairs As DOJ Prosecutors Begin Asking FBI Agents About Uranium One.

Here’s a new essay from our friend Paul Merkley: CLOSING DOWN CHRISTIANITY AT ITS SOURCE.

It’s time to send the Syrian refugees home and certainly time to stop their importation into Canada: Christmas In Liberated Aleppo. We have seen the same return towards normalcy in other areas of Syria liberated from the Western war. I may have referenced Mount St. Helens and how biologists were surprised at how fast life returned to the area devastate by pyroclastic flows. Natural systems (including human communities) restore themselves when left unobstructed by external agents, because they are optimal, ipso facto their existence.

There has been a notable body of articles critical of social media as of late such as Digital Distraction Is Bad for Creativity. In addition, we are seeing comments from some high profile defectors from the dungeons of Facebook, Twitter and Google. Here’s an interesting take on a negative impact of these platforms: Why Twitter, Facebook and Google Are the Antisocial Networks. That it’s by Niall Ferguson should grab your attention.

I’m coining a new acronym. Besides “lol” – laugh out loud – used by texters, I propose “col” for cry out loud. As a consequence the following article may make you either lol or col: California Professors Are Now Claiming Farmers’ Markets Are Racist.
