The Empire Under Attack
Apr 6, 2021 - Youtubing
My Youtube channel grows slowly with no serious issues. My most recent:
Apr 5, 2021 - Bitcoin
Bitcoin has no intrinsic value and may become worthless one day, but lots of people are making money off this crazy scheme. It's like those million dollar baseball cards. Very few people with a million dollars would pay that much, or even a thousand dollars for one, but some do. Just recently a Super Mario game from 1986 sold for $660,000, so was that value just created?
I had assumed the Feds would crack down and destroy Bitcoin as a competitor to their currency, but I now think billionaires and criminal organizations like the CIA love it for laundering and hiding their billions of dollars. It also helps keep the US dollar strong. Two trillion dollars are now "invested" in these non-existent coins. If the Feds choose, they can ban Bitcoin and wipe two trillion dollars in excess dollars off the Earth. This may occur because nations like Iran are using blockchain to evade the American controlled SWIFT banking system. Don't listen to those fools who say the Feds can't just ban Bitcoin. The NSA has every transaction recorded and can decrypt anything. The NSA probably developed blockchain!
Mar 29, 2021 - Self-Driving Cars are a Con
Elon Musk is America's wealthiest African-American. He is entertaining but a con man, as I mentioned before when he proposed underground tubes for automobiles. And he will never send anyone to Mars with our current technology. His biggest con is Tesla and self-driving cars, as explained here. Skip to the end to watch the whole video.
Mar 28, 2021 - COVID News Ignored
Our corporate media has touted the COVID vaccine as a solution, but ignored a shocking revelation. The Department of Veterans Affairs just released a study that shows the vaccine works for just 7-9 months! So we'll need annual COVID vaccines, or maybe twice a year!
Mar 27, 2021 - The Filibuster Will Remain
There is much news coverage in the USA about how President Biden and the Democrats plan to eliminate the filibuster, which can be used in the US Senate to require a three-fifths majority to pass legislation. They claim this is needed to pass large tax increases on American millionaires and corporations. However, Biden and Democrats are funded and controlled by these wealthy titans. The tax promises were made during the election campaign to explain how massive social welfare programs can be afforded. This is why Biden and his team will not eliminate the filibuster as it allows them to propose such things knowing that some Republicans will filibuster so as Biden secretly promised his sponsors "Nothing will fundamentally change."
Mar 15, 2021 - More Attacks on Iran
On Thursday, State Department spokesman Ned Price (a former CIA agent) said the Biden administration has no plans to make any “unilateral gestures” to jump-start talks with Tehran to revive the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA. This was negotiated by the Obama administration and several other world powers to ensure peace with Iran. Trump followed orders from Israel and unilaterally withdrew from the agreement and imposed sanctions, and was heavily criticized by Democrats. Biden had promised to rejoin the JCPOA during the election, but now refuses, saying the JCPOA must be renegotiated even though Iran was compiling when Trump withdrew.
Our media does not report that Biden can simply rejoin the JCPOA and remove sanctions! If not, Iran might follow North Korea's example and withdraw from the NPT and build nukes, just like the USA does in violation of the NPT. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that Israeli commandos have conducted a dozen attacks on Iranian ships that deliver oil to Syria, whose oil fields were illegally seized by the USA. This was ignored by the rest of our corporate media. Here is a good summary of these acts of war. It looks like Biden's neocon team plans to finish the job that Obama started and completely destroy Syria.
Mar 14, 2021 - More 9/11
We are all tired of 9/11 films, but I stumbled across this one that has some insights.
Mar 13, 2021- Still Bashing Trump
I was wondering what our corporate media would do to fill its "news" stories once Trump left. It does the same thing! Daily Trump bashing stories often based on "reported" stories, meaning there is no factual verification, just rumors. Meanwhile, President Biden refuses to speak with the press and they are fine with that.
Feb 28, 2021 - More Jimmy Dore
Jimmy Dore is the most insightful and entertaining political guy on the internet who often teams up with the great Glenn Greenwald. Here are two great recent short videos. In this one, he blasts leftwing sites for applauding the deplatforming of rightwing sites, only to have this happen to them a few weeks later. In this one, he mocks Democrats who blasted Trump for a senseless and illegal bombing of Syria, yet applaud Joe Biden when he just did the same thing! I suspect Youtube may shut him down soon, but he's survived since he's so likable.
Feb 27, 2021 - The US Army Lowers Fitness Standards for Women
Here is a lovely article that explains how the US Army is lowering fitness standards for women, but hiding it from promotion boards. An Army official stated: "We are not going to artificially inflate the raw score for women, but we have to figure out a way to make it fair to both genders," the Army official said. "We need a fair way that accounts for physiological differences." He then explains how the Army will artificially inflate scores for women since they are substandard.
Feb 26, 2021 - Minimum Wage Lies
Proposals to raise the minimum wage have caused a flood of lies to appear in our corporate media. It was last raised 12 years ago, and would need to reach $11 an hour to reach levels of the 1980s. I was surprised to see Marketwatch publish a fact based article on the results of MacDonald's increases in wages forced by state governments. No one was laid off and food price increases were minor.
Feb 25, 2021 - Blatant Wall Street Corruption
When brokerages began offering commission free trading I wondered how they could make a profit. Some money could be made on margin interest, but I was suspicious. It has now been documented that most work with outside firms to illegally use customer market orders to profit. Their computers monitor spikes in demand for certain stocks, so buy them a second before the customer orders that cause the stock price to rise. Then they sell the stocks a few seconds later at a higher price, often to the very customers they "serve." This is blatantly illegal, widespread, and no one in power takes action.
Feb 15, 2021 - COVID Vaccination Deaths
"Over 41 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through February 7, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 1,170 reports of death (0.003%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine."
Only .003%, yet our corporate media never mentions this fact from the CDC.
Feb 14, 2021 - Time Magazine Says the Presidential Election was Rigged!
Here is a very interesting Jimmy Dore review of a recent Time magazine article that explains how the Presidential election was rigged. The Deep State is so arrogant that they brag about it in a national magazine.
Feb 13, 2021 - NeoCons Dominate the Democratic Party
Here is a great video with progressives Glenn Greenwald and Jimmy Dore exposing the corruption of the Democratic Party and its supportive media.
Feb 7, 2021 - Youtubing
My Youtube channel grows slowly with no serious issues. My most recent:
Feb 6, 2021 - The QAnon Conspiracy
Here is a great article about our corporate media's newest propaganda smear technique. If you oppose government actions or propaganda, you are labeled a crazy QAnon. Here is part of that article:
"QAnon is an idea with no structure, no chain of command and no rules. Anybody can pick up a YouTube channel or another social media account and claim to be an anonymous insider — and exploit and project whatever insane claim they want to make. With the rise of social media and recruitment of virtual reality and “gaming” technologists, these consultants have provided new mediums and taken the art of smearing to a new level. From slanderous TED Talks to inaccurate documentaries that defame individuals who have nothing to do with QAnon, the damage to the target can be severe. Often, those making the allegations are reliant on discredited sources."
The phrase “conspiracy theory” itself is used to smear. Sane people know that the powerful conspire to do things without telling the public. If someone offers a theory about what they are really doing, does that mean they are crazy?
Jan 31, 2021 - Ever Heavier Tanks
This article made me laugh: “The Abrams M1A2 SEPv3 upgrades introduce suitability concerns, the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation wrote in a recent report covering the program’s full operational test and evaluation and some live fire testing. “Weight growth limits the tank’s tactical transportability. The M1A2 SEPv3 is not transportable by current recovery vehicles, tactical bridges or heavy equipment transporters.”
Jan 30, 2021 - START Games
The USA and Russia have around 6000 nuclear warheads each, which is ten times more than they will ever need. Extending START, a treaty that limits this number, means nothing since neither has the funds or need to expand. Russia was replacing some of its old warheads and Trump wanted that stopped. But Trump didn’t want a deal with Russia to reduce them so insisted that China with 300 nuclear warheads must join talks. China said it would once the USA and Russia downsize near 300 warheads. Russia said Trump’s demand that China downsize was delusional. Extending START by President Biden means nothing, he needs to show courage and agree to cut warheads.
Jan 29, 2021 - Our Health Care Disaster
The United States has the world's most dysfunctional healthcare system. It costs twice as much as other developed nations yet rates below average, as this recent, short article explains. The US government already covers 40% of Americans and could cover 100% at the same cost with a single payer system like most nations. But profits from the current system are massive and used to corrupt politicians. We need to get big business to understand the money they would save with a national health care system. Labor manufacturing costs would plummet making American goods more competitive.
Jan 28, 2021 - Ban Naked Short Selling
The current debate about the short selling that caused recent market turmoil overlooks the problem, naked short selling. This from Wiki:
Naked short selling, or naked shorting, is the practice of short-selling a tradable asset of any kind without first borrowing the asset from someone else or ensuring that it can be borrowed. When the seller does not obtain the shares within the required time frame, the result is known as a "failure to deliver" ("FTD"). The transaction generally remains open until the shares are acquired by the seller, or the seller's broker settles the trade.
This allows someone to sell a million shares of let's say Gamestop in a few minutes, driving down the price because for traditional reasons, brokers are not required to deliver the shares until three business days later. This was established a century ago when physical paper must be mailed. After the stock drops, they buy the needed shares to cover and transfer them before the three day deadline. You can't do this, only big brokers are allowed. Banning naked short selling is the solution but difficult to enforce. However, with electronic transmissions, shares can be transferred in seconds. Eliminate the outdated delay and require shares to be transferred immediately.
Jan 16, 2021 - Will "Dictator" Trump Leave?
The corporate media hatred of Trump is ridiculous. Trump is still the President of the United States and leader of the Justice Department. If he supported these protesters, then why is his Justice Department hunting them down and arresting them like armed terrorists? And they were just protestors, no shots were fired or weapons confiscated. Were they suckered into storming Congress by an obvious lack of riot police while National Guard riot police were standing by a few miles away? It's always difficult to distinguish between government conspiracies and government incompetence.
Some think this is like the 1933 Reichstag fire that Hitler used to declare martial law and will be used by the incoming Democrats to pass a law that would wipe out whatever constitutional rights Americans have left, like protesting and gun ownership. They already have their allies in the tech industry censor whatever they dislike and Delta airlines began a no-fly policy for political dissidents.
Trump has signaled that he plans to run in 2024. Old folks know that Biden and the Dems will do little for the working class and may start yet another war, so voters will be angry in 2024. All this BS is a show to stomp on Trump before he leaves, and evict him from the GOP. But then Trump is a fascist dictator, so he will rig the election and never leave as they’ve told us for years.
Jan 15, 2021 - More COVID Censorship
My Nov 30, 2020 blog post began:
"The oddest thing in COVID politics is the outright censorship of discussions. Youtube has quickly deleted videos by medical doctors who state this is not a pandemic or suggest cheap cures. A recent exception is Dr. Roger Hodkinson who offered his informed perspective to Edmonton’s City Council on how governments responded to COVID-19. He called for the end of restrictions, mask use, testing, and social distancing. This was just posted Nov 19th so perhaps Youtube has yet to ban due to Thanksgiving and it hasn't many views yet. Or maybe this is allowed because it was a formal government meeting and he is an expert in the field."
I just checked today and Youtube has removed Hodkinson's expert opinion.
This video has been removed for violating YouTube's Terms of Service.
His speech can still be heard at this link.
Jan 11, 2021 - The EMALS Disaster
In 2018, I published The EMALS Disaster exposing the US Navy worst procurement disaster. The new USS Ford aircraft carrier program incorporated a new electromagnetic aircraft launch system that had failed in testing, yet was included in the design anyway.
Navy Admirals have insisted that EMALS was working great for the past three years and began construction of the 3rd and 4th Ford class carrier, although they no longer released detailed statistics on EMALS performance aboard the USS Ford. Now this from a leaked Pentagon test.
"Behler’s assessment covered 3,975 launches and landing operations on the Ford during 11 at-sea, post-delivery trials from November 2019 through September 2020. The electromagnetic-powered catapult system is supposed to operate 4,166 “cycles,” or launches, between operational mission failures. Instead, it went 181 cycles between failures, or “well below the requirement,”
Having read a great deal about this issue, the problem seems to be rail alignment. The tolerances for EM systems are tight. They work well ashore and in calm seas, but even in moderate seas the carrier begins to flex unpredictably and the rails misalign constantly by just a few millimeters. The software is unable to properly manage the launch power and the results are unpredictable. This affects the Ford's elevators too.
Jan 4, 2021 - Alien Spacecraft?
Read this interesting, short article about an alien spacecraft entering our solar system that was dismissed as a comet. The source is prestigious Harvard professor Avi Lobe.
Jan 3, 2021 - Shadowgate 2.0
Here is another must see independent documentary about how the Deep State controls our empire.
Jan 1, 2021 - The Empire Under Attack
In 1919 Joseph Schumpeter described ancient Rome in a way that sounds like the United States in 2021.
"There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not Roman, they were those of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, the allies would be invented. When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest -- why, then it was the national honor that had been insulted. The fight was always invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil-minded neighbors...The whole world was pervaded by a host of enemies, it was manifestly Rome's duty to guard against their indubitably aggressive designs."
