Communism Marketed to the Masses

27 Oct

It’s possible as the Globalists and the Patriots around the world face off, times are about to change. It’s hard to not recognize, or acknowledge that the Globalists represent a very small group of individuals. These people demonstrate on a daily basis their intolerance for individual rights, personal freedoms, natural science, or any rule of law. The Patriots on the other side recognize many things, including personal property rights and the rule of law.

The bankers as I write, are in the process of using their powers to close any competition to their stranglehold on humanity. They are offering up banks around the world the option to either agree to implement “green climate control” initiatives, or be taken out of existence. The consequence of which would mean that anyone wishing to enjoy personal freedoms would be taken out of existence, or resort to other forms of barter.

These “green climate control” initiatives are designed to control individual freedoms, and extract taxes from the individuals to fund an unelected bureaucracy. Of note, they are only targeted at rich countries, who are not the primary contributors of CO2, and none of the major contributors of CO2 are targeted countries.

There is an active effort to control our civilization. Always has been you’d say. Always will be you’d say. I proffer up that it was never that way, nor was it ever meant to be that way.

A small group of people, perhaps like a cancer on society, developed a shrewd method of turning man’s character against it as a tool for personal gain.

Their Objectives:

  1. Control the method of commerce between individuals to ensure that productivity is diminished and corruption has a firm footing.
  2. Implement a banking system that by design, prohibits the ability of any individual to accumulate and maintain wealth, as the interest on any debt cannot ever be repaid.
  3. Bribe and blackmail politicians, incentivizing them by financial rewards and the threat of exposure to support that banking system.
  4. Control the media so that any communication of the activities of the banking system is suppressed, hidden, obfuscated, or eliminated from any digital footprint.
  5. Take over any and all forms of education to promote atheism, promiscuity, gender diversification, and the decimation of the family.

In so doing, that small group would control the world.

Regardless of the positive spin that the media adopts, the fruits of their activities speak much louder. Through their efforts towards globalism, they demonstrate a cancerous desire for control over civilization through every aspect of human thought. It is hard to find anything of value in their system. Everything about it is an affront to inherent conscience. It can only become acceptable to the majority through deception.

If you have to lie about the motives of your philosophy in order to get people to adopt your philosophy, then your philosophy must be dangerously incomplete or outright cataclysmic.

Shadow Banking

25 Jun

As I learn more about the subject of “shadow banking”, I recall how it was that I even made myself aware of “shadow banking:.

Recently it seems, banks had gone to the extreme of not even checking borrowers’ income in the application form… More importantly there was no income verification.

ShadowBanks

 

To myself, just a regular guy, I thought that to be an example of “incompetence”. But seeing it throughout the media (and elsewhere) on a seemingly daily basis it was nothing new.

But now I understand… Quicken Loans in now the largest lender for homes in the US. Quicken Loans is in the “shadow banking” category. They are not a bank. They do not take deposits to secure their loans.

I know this is wildly impossible, but are the banks, now incapable of rationalizing their home loan activity, offloading the residential home loans to “shadow banks” to cover their trail and to create a whole new area of financial corruption?

Trading Global Temperature Changes

21 May

An interesting trading system has been developed by Trade Genius. The system generates trades that would be held over a few days to generate small gains with low risk. The software developed by Trade Genius is  compatible with Tradestation software as well as some other trading platforms.

Beyond the software and philosophy of trading, an interesting spin on the temperature of the planet has “again” shown its face.

In an interview with Bob Kudla of Trade Genius posted on YouTube, he discusses the impact of stock prices associated with food over the coming years. His statements are consistent with the content of a book written by John L. Casey, DARK WINTER. Those statements and conclusions concern a downward trend in global temperatures due to the very high correlation between sunspot activity and global temperatures, in conjunction with the highly consistent pattern of sunspots over time.

SunSpotsvsTemp

The above chart shows a correlation of global temperatures to sunspot activity.

If these predications hold true, there could well be a disruption in the food supplies around the world. You might choose to stock up on canned goods, or perhaps consider a solution written about in one of my previous blogs, Soylent.

 

LesterLand

16 Oct

There is a political gridlock going on this week on Capitol Hill. One might argue it has been going on for some time. Lawrence Lessig uses a Lesterland analogy to explain how our political officials are elected, while Dylan Radigan fights to get big money out of politics. One thing is very clear : neither party is working to support the average American. They are paid by the largest financial backers in the country, those with the largest financial backing, and the Corporations that hold an ever increasing amount of cash.


The objective of the political figures today is to raise enough cash to get re-elected and to leave office with a much greater personal wealth than they entered office with. The objective is to achieve a bipartisan status quo.

“…they will say that gumming up the works is not part of the problem, it’s part of the solution.”

It is interesting that there is always bipartisan support when it comes to the war on terror, restrictions on civil liberties, and the continuous surveillance of US citizens by the NSA. But when it comes to running the government and developing policies that move the country forward, there can be no agreements.

Herbert Stein’s Law

3 Oct

The father of Ben Stein, Herbert Stein, wrote that “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop”.


If we look at the distribution of wealth in the US, Stein’s Law is at work. Stein’s law could be used as a way to describe why the “American’s Are Not Getting Fatter” as well, or why Detroit went bust.

And, as the Federal government begins to address raising the National Debt limit in the next couple of weeks, it is very much consistent with Stein’s Law that “it’s not really a ceiling if you continue to raise it.”

What is more important to the average Joe, is what’s going to happen to the stock market, and the economy. As the “U.S. Stock Market Moves Further Away From Reality“, below is a chart of the stock market (SPY) over the last 20 years. It looks like another top could be forming.


If Stein’s Law is working on the debt ceiling, it may be working on the stock market as well.

A Part of the Incarceration Industry in America

23 Sep

One of the more successful businesses in the US, the private prison system is alive and well. This is due in no small part to the close relationship between the government and this private industry group. First let’s start with an image of how many countries in the world have a higher incarceration rate than the “Land of the Free”:

That’s right. The US is the world’s leader in incarceration. The next closest incarceration rate to any country that is not an island nation is Rwanda.

In another measurable in the incarceration world, the US is the only country in the world that incarcerates children for life. You can find an image of all the countries that condemn children to die in prison here.

In order to further the success of this business, below is a graphic of the location of prisons where state governments are committed to finding enough offenders to fill 90% of the available beds:

And in California, the state is working toward not releasing nonviolent drug offenders despite a federal court order. Instead, they are discussing a new alignment between the state’s prison guard union and the private prison corporations that would expand the current incarceration levels.

Also of note, although blacks in the US only make up 30% of the population, they make up 60% of the prison population. A graph of the African-American population in the US has a relationship to the incarceration map above.

This sure looks like a strange form of capitalism, where business failure is not an option. You can find out more about how to invest in this growing business at CCA’s investor page.

Running Out Of New Drugs to Take

28 Aug

In 2012, the US employed around 650,000 people whose total costs were an average of $74,615 to research and develop new drugs. The average cost to develop a new drug is now over $1.2B, if you include the ones that don’t make it to market.


There are fewer and fewer success stories in the development of marketable drugs though. This is driving up the cost of drug development, and consolidating the industry. As Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK), and Merck (NYSE: MRK) have lucrative patents that are going to expire, other companies like AstraZeneca and Amgen are buying up small companies to fill their developmental shortfalls.

The reality is there are fewer drugs being found that perform better than ones already in existence for most medical ailments. Perhaps a clear example of this is in the area of psychiatric medication.

“…. antidepressants, antipsychotics, hypnotic medications and the like…… each … is filled with “me too” drugs, which are essentially just copies of one another; we have six S.S.R.I. antidepressants that essentially do the same thing, and likewise for the 10 new atypical antipsychotic drugs.”

“After a series of failed clinical trials in which novel antidepressants and antipsychotics did little or no better than placebos, the companies seem to have concluded that developing new psychiatric drugs is too risky and too expensive”

In the case of psychiatric medication, there are those that argue that these are hugely over prescribed as well. And along that line, there’s a site called the ADHD University, suggesting that there’s a place for higher education where the only subject studied is how to diagnose patients as ADHD. This site does come with a warning though, it is for “US Healthcare Professionals Only.”

It was also suggested in Richard Freidman’s New York Times article that an effective psychiatric medication could be found in Ketamine. That’s not hard to understand as Ketamine was developed to replace PCP, commonly known on the streets as “angel dust”, an effective hallucinogen.

We are running out of new drugs to take.

Drop in Dow Industrials Perspective August 15, 2013

16 Aug

The Dow (DJI) dropped today by 225.47, or 1.47%. It is currently up 12.67% for the year. Below is a chart of the DJI on a daily basis for the year.

Consider your timeframe whenever entering a position. Below is the DJI on a weekly timeframe.

Looking at a weekly chart, no action being taken (always) is an option. Entering or adding to positions is also a consideration, as the averages have simply dropped to intermediate moving averages. An exit plan would be appropriate for any additional entries in the event the market continues down.

Also, depending upon your perspective, on both a weekly and a daily timeframe these charts suggest that the market is more likely to go down than up. Re-entering the market when the DJI returns to the slower moving average is perhaps a better bet.

Contact your broker or financial advisor for any decision you may choose to make.

Some High Paying Jobs in the US

5 Aug

If you’re looking to get into a high paying job in the US, you might want to consider becoming a broker of artificial hips. A recent article about a man in need of an artificial hip appeared in the New York Times. The list price for the hip, without a mark-up (list price – yea), was $13,000.

An artificial hip, however, costs only about $350 to manufacture in the United States

In the case of the artificial hip, with a cost of $350, and a resale of $13,000, that is a whopping 96% gross profit%, or a gross profit$ of $12,550. In the US last year, there were 332 hip replacements. If you multiply the 332 times the $12,550 per hip, you get $4.1M.

In the NYT article, that hip replacement quoted to the patient in the US at $13,000 was eventually performed in Europe at a total cost of $13,660. That $13,660 not only included the hip, but “all doctors’ fees, operating room charges, crutches, medicine, a hospital room for five days, a week in rehab and a round-trip ticket from America.”

The bottom line of all the above is if you can get anywhere within the economic food chain that is the US Healthcare industry, you can make a fortune. And, if you want the same healthcare, you can get it outside of the country at a fraction of the price paid domestically.

Companies and Corporations obviously pay their employees using operating profits from their businesses. One only needs to look at the profit margins and average sales per employee to understand where the high paying jobs are located. Examples of a few companies/ organizations are listed below:
