A man went out to shovel snow yesterday near where I was staying in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  He froze to death in his garage.  Welcome to climate change.  That is, welcome to the real climate change.  It’s getting cold with even colder weather in sight for most of the country.  Looking for twenty below zero around here.

I think we can safely forget about global warming – it ain’t happening. As I’m sure even Al would have to admit, his prediction that the North polar ice cap would be gone by 2014, at the latest, didn’t happen.  NASA satellite images actually show that ice has been accumulating worldwide, not decreasing.

So, Al might as well use his “hockey stick” for fuel in the fireplace this week.  Actually, I don’t think he was all that worried about global warming anyway as neither he nor his elite buddies have yet to give up their private jets.  Davos was quite a sight recently with all the private jets polluting the pristine Switzerland mountain air.

In 2012, Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, said that, “We’re now well into the second decade of the pause (no global warming). If we don’t see convincing evidence of global warming by 2015, it will start to become clear whether the models are bunk.” Now, four years later – yeah, I guess it’s pretty clear that they’re bunk. According to NASA data, temperatures have actually decreased since 1998.

Now, we have record lows and the coldest winter on record in forever. Welcome to the reality of climate change.  And it’s only going to get worse as there are predictions of a mini-ice age on the horizon. Hope you like ice fishing.

 

Epilogue

I suppose it’s always possible that I could change my mind about global warming. For example, if all those private jets suddenly vanished, I might get a little worried.

Todd May, a professor at Clemson University, is calling for the complete eradication of the human species (according to an op-ed piece in the New York Times).  Apparently, we’ve been so bad to the animals and to the environment that we all deserve to die.  Problem is it’s just his opinion.  Problem is, he isn’t God.

Now, I do agree with a few of Professor May’s thoughts.  For one, there has been a lot of damage done to the environment.  For another, animals are subject to a lot of abuse including being raised for slaughter. After that, in my opinion, the professor goes off the deep end.

For starters, I guess that Professor May sees himself as judge, jury and executioner.  That takes a lot of hubris.  What’s more, Professor May obviously values animal and plant life higher than human life, so I can’t exactly agree with him there either.  Further, Professor May doesn’t explain who is going to carry out the dastardly deed of killing off all the people on the planet; perhaps, himself, as he mentions that he is going to dedicate his life to the cause of “mass abortions” in order to depopulate the planet (and eventually save it).

Of course, I’m not sure what a saved planet would look actually like, although presumably there would be plants and animals except after an ELE (mass extinction event) when maybe only the planet existed and hardly anything much else. Rather a bizarre philosophy, I would say.  After all, it seems rather pointless to have a world with no intelligent life, much less no life at all.

Here’s my biggest objection, though, to what the professor said. He blames everyone, all human beings. That must apply then to the Mother Teresas of the world, the Dalai Lama and people like the Amazon rainforest tribes who have lived in peace and harmony with nature for thousands of years. Yeah, kill ‘em all.

So, is there a logic to Professor May’s madness? Well, actually, there is and you can find it on a hilltop in Elbert County, Georgia just 50 miles from Clemson University. It’s called the Georgia Guidestones, a mysterious granite monument consisting of four giant stones which is engraved in eight different languages. The Georgia Guidestones give mankind a new kind of Ten Commandments including this one which I’m sure that you will love: world population should be no more than 500 million people.  No indication, though, as to who will make the call of which 6.5 billion on the planet will be sacrificed on the altar of occult ideology. Perhaps, it’s Professor May.

A couple of posts ago I started with this: “Science says that the universe is missing.  Missing, you understand. They can’t find the ‘dark matter’ and ‘dark energy,’ assuming that they even exist.  Actually, at this point in time, they’re simply part of a formula on a chalkboard and nothing more.” Well, some of you have asked so here’s my answer to the question of whether or not the universe is really missing.

First, it’s important to define the term “universe.” Most people, indeed some scientists, believe that the universe is what I refer to as a closed system. That is, the universe is all there is.  As a result, the laws of physics don’t always explain everything.  That is, there are anomalies that science can’t deal with.  Today, many scientists are in search of The Theory of Everything so that they can finally explain these anomalies. The core of that search is the quantification of gravity and quantum mechanics.  Of course, it would help if we actually knew what gravity is, but we don’t.

The problem has been somewhat recognized by science because they realize that there must have been something before The Big Bang.  So, now for example, we have multiverse theory (e.g. parallel universes).  In theory, that’s a start.  However, the problem is much bigger than that.

What we need is an understanding of everything in creation – the universe, the multiverse, the sub-atomic quantum world and most importantly…the source of all creation.  That’s why there was a lot of chatter about scientists finding the Higgs Boson or The God Particle.  However, even if it was a God particle, it’s merely a particle of this three- dimensional universe and nothing more.  Okay, four-dimensional if you’re counting space-time.

Dark matter and dark energy are not “missing.” They are simply constructs in a mathematical formula which doesn’t reflect all of reality. Dark matter and dark energy are necessary in cosmology for one reason and one reason only: to complete a formula written on a chalkboard; a formula which, at its best, measures only our known universe.  Nikola Tesla put it best when he said that, “Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.”

Physicist David Bohm has stated that the true source of our reality is projected from another realm which is beyond space and time. A projection you understand; actually a holographic projection, a holographic universe. And the physics of holograms is different from the physics of our so-called material world. A lot different. Actually, the sub-atomic quantum world is already known to have different physics.  Thus, the search for the Theory of Everything.

So, how does the search for the Theory of Everything end? Unfortunately, it ends badly since science cannot observe beyond space and time.  All we’ll ever get is theories, and nothing more. Life, and science, requires cause and effect and there’s no way to always be able to observe the cause, especially if it’s coming from beyond space and time (outside of our universe).  Therefore, it will always be impossible to prove the existence of a Creator and likewise impossible to scientifically refute one either. One thing I’m pretty sure of, though, is that dark matter and dark energy, at some point, will not be part of future scientific theories.  Such is the nature of science, that it is always changing.

The universe isn’t missing.  We just haven’t found it yet.

 

All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”  – Max Planck, physicist

 

It was a huge yawn this year.  Nothing to write home about, although there were a few side conversations that it would have been worth it to be the proverbial fly on the wall. Just a bunch of arrogant, greedy billionaires who have already decided that they run the world.

According to an article in Zero Hedge, Ocasio-Cortez and her idea to raise marginal income tax rates to 70% was discussed.  The sound you would have heard if you were there was the derisive laughter from those talking about her proposal saying,“everyone knows you need to tax capital, not income to soak the rich! “ In other words, the rich don’t pay income taxes. Besides, they are the 1% and they contribute heavily to those who write the tax code.

With the meetings all but concluded, the moguls all left for their homes around the world – each one in a private jet. I guess they weren’t overly concerned about global warming, now were they?

David Horowitz recently penned an article entitled “White Priviledge Is A Racist Idea. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/01/24/david-horowitz-white-privilege-is-a-racist-idea/  It’s well worth the read regardless of your belief system. Horowitz mentioned that the concept of white privilege is part of a totalitarian ideology but he didn’t exactly say what that means.  So, I’d like to take it one step further and expand on that idea.

The concept of white privilege is put out by other white people to marginalize white people.  That is a racist idea, no doubt.  But the concept has spread and can be found in almost every aspect of our society.  For example,on a telephone interview, CNN news reporter Areva Martin accused Sirius XM radio host David Webb of benefiting from his “white privilege” – even though, as she was to find out, Webb is black. She assumed that he was white and that by virtue of him being a white male, he had white privilege.

However, white privilege is part of a broader all-encompassing idea to eradicate the white race altogether, as a number of people have called for the eradication of the white race in the media.  That’s a first as far as I know.  Members of a race calling for its own extermination.  Oddly enough, those calling for the eradication of their own race aren’t exactly being good role models and sacrificing themselves for the cause, now are they?   Here’s why.

The totalitarian ideology Horowitz was referring to is this.  The world is to be “browned” and then ruled over by a small, white elite. The very same white elites who are calling for the eradication of their own white race!  Here’s the background.

The history of the white race is rather interesting.  They spread westward into Europe in ancient times and easily became the ruling class beginning with the Roman emperors. They were responsible for the advancements in Western Civilization and have dominated the world for at least the last 500 years.  But a funny thing happened on the way to the forum.  Their own race started to rebel.  First, there was the American War of Independence in 1776, followed by the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution.  They had met the enemy and it was themselves.

Kings fell by the wayside as a result of the revolutions, but they didn’t disappear.  Rather, they retreated into the shadows and helped to create shadow governments. These shadow governments have been responsible for almost all major changes in the world over the last 120 years and they have been responsible for all world wars.  Is it any wonder then that nearly all American presidents are related to one another, even Barack Obama.  They are all part of the bloodline that continues to rule over Western Civilization.

So, white privilege is synonymous with the eradication of all those who might compete for the throne, just like in ancient times when sons killed fathers and brothers killed brothers in their quest of power. Globalization is a buzzword for the concentration of power in the hands of a few (white elites).  Open borders is a buzzword for the browning of the world and the destruction of white societies.  Global warming is a buzzword for world domination through carbon taxes on CO2 which is necessary for all life on the planet.  The United Nations is a buzzword for a one-world government.

So, yes a totalitarian ideology.  Thank you David Horowitz.

 

Epilogue

I was watching TV sports talk the other day.  Watched several shows which had predominately black TV hosts (and always one woman). It struck me rather odd in an era of white privilege that we could have what is obviously black privilege in certain parts of society. Morgan Freeman was asked about this topic in an interview with CNN host Don Lemon. Don Lemon, who is black, asked Morgan Freeman, who is also black, if he thought that race plays a part in wealth distribution. Morgan Freeman said no, that you and I are proof.  Thank you Morgan Freeman.

At least there are two sane people in the world.

 

“…and went on to work for Fox News — where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work. But yet, you come with [an] assumption and you go to white privilege. That’s actually insulting.” – David Webb, Fox News contributor

Major developments on Capitol Hill often happen in public but without the public’s awareness. For example, Obamacare was passed without the public or Congress knowing exactly what was in the legislation.  As they say, the devil is in the details.

The government is currently operating under a variety of declared national state of emergencies. Thirty-one in total. These declarations pre-empt the Constitution. In fact, they make it permissible to carry on what would normally be considered to be illegal activities or activities that would otherwise be considered to be unconstitutional.

For example, since September 2001, the United States has been operating under a state of declared war following the 9/11 attacks. A state of war, you understand. A state of war still exists today and this allows any U.S. president to use U.S. troops without the approval of Congress (think Afghanistan, Libya and drone attacks on just about everyone).  In addition, the secretive War on Terror continues although the public rarely hears about it. Sure, these adventures are generally accompanied by major public relations campaigns to convince the public that military force is justified. Not from a legal standpoint because that was never needed, but rather from a political standpoint. Thus, all the lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. After all, they didn’t want another Vietnam protest in the streets of America.

Fast forward to January 3, 2019, when bills HR24 and HR25 were introduced into Congress (actually reintroduced).  Nobody has talked about them, but they could be passed by Congress at any time without any fanfare. HR24 requires an audit of the Federal Reserve, which is important in as much as the Federal Reserve is not part of the U.S. government. It is actually owned and controlled by foreign citizens and foreign banks(corporations) and incredibly we allow them to dictate U.S. economic policy.  Because of their power to shape the U.S. economy, we have a serious national security risk occurring in the broad daylight.

HR25 is perhaps even more newsworthy. It calls for the elimination of the I.R.S. Like the Federal Reserve, the I.R.S. is a non-governmental body which is controlled by foreign entities.  As a result, U.S. tax collections are sent overseas (think the Vatican).  In addition, the bill calls for the elimination of the federal income tax (which is probably unconstitutional anyway).

And if Congress were to refuse to pass such legislation, Trump could just declare another National Emergency and implement them anyway. Today, CNN reported that the White House is in the process of drafting a National Emergency Proclamation to provide funds to construct a wall on the Southern border.  Here we go again.

 

Epilogue

The impeach Trump rhetoric is a smoke screen for the real reason that the Democrats don’t want Trump (or anyone else) in power. In reality, the fight in D.C. is about who has the right to use these national state of emergencies, and with it near dictatorial powers.  Then, there is the matter that the U.S. is no longer a republic.  Hasn’t been since 1871. We’re a corporation! It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but now you know.

 

“The corporations that profit from permanent war need us to be afraid. Fear stops us from objecting to government spending on a bloated military. Fear means we will not ask unpleasant questions of those in power. Fear permits the government to operate in secret. Fear means we are willing to give up our rights and liberties for promises of security. The imposition of fear ensures that the corporations that wrecked the country cannot be challenged. Fear keeps us penned in like livestock.” 
― Chris Hedges

 

The Hill recently ran an article entitled, “America – The New Socialist Frontier” (link https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/425970-america-the-new-socialist-frontier). Whether you agree or disagree with the perspective of the article, there are a couple of things that I would like to point out about issues connected with this article.

Some newly elected legislators do have a socialist agenda. No doubt. What the article doesn’t talk about, though, is why they were elected by the voters.  In order to answer that question, let me first digress for a moment.

After World War II, many Americans believed in something that was referred to as The American Dream. Sure, there was a sprinkling of wealthy people in the country, but the vast majority worked very hard just to be able to support their families.  In a fairly short period of time, prosperity blossomed from sea-to-shining-sea.  The burgeoning American middle class was born. Opportunities abounded – capitalism was king and consumerism became the driving force in society.  Before long, the nouveau riche sprouted up seemingly everywhere.

After many years of prosperity, something unforeseen happened.  Class warfare. Why? Well, because not everyone shared in the spoils equally.  Of course, not everyone contributed equally either but that didn’t seem to stop the have-nots from complaining.  People had gotten accustomed to great prosperity in the country.  They could see it everywhere – in magazines, on TV and the movies and in advertisements, and so they wanted some of it for themselves.

A new age dawned. People become fat and lazy.  They no longer wanted to work hard to obtain The American Dream. Many didn’t want to work at all. They simply wanted the government to provide for them. Problem was that the government doesn’t grow money on trees. It’s is funded by the taxpayers.

So, a rallying cry inevitably went out to tax the rich. However, taxing the rich is not quite all it’s cracked up to be as The Hill article pointed out,“The philosophy of envy and siphoning from the rich appeals to a large segment of the population that does not realize that the definition of ‘rich’ is a spiral of devolution that eventually will reach every business and every individual who works for a living.” You may remember how President Obama’s definition of ‘rich’ with respect to tax increases kept spiraling down and down until at one point it was going to include the middle class.  In actuality, it’s even much worse than that.  When you look at the income distribution curve in this country, the only place that significant tax increases can really come from is the middle class. You can’t fund a socialist society like Ocasio-Cortez wants unless the middle class pays for it.  Increasing the top tax rate to 70% for the rich is a smokescreen.  It’s a mere pittance of what will be required. What she is not saying is that her Green New Deal will destroy the middle class which is actually a key objective of socialism.

This leads me to the political strategy of our newly-minted socialists. The key words that I quoted from the article are “every individual who works for a living.” The reason those words are key is that Ocasio-Cortez is appealing to a political base who does not work for a living or, at the very least, works but does not pay taxes. She is targeting the have-nots to get them to revolt against the haves; in other words political class warfare. It’s a smart strategy since it appeals to roughly half the people in this country who do not pay income taxes as well as to people who get paid some form of government assistance. The problem, though, as Benjamin Franklin pointed out, is that,When people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic.” Are you ready for that?

Socialism is superficially a very appealing concept. However, there has to be a group that implements the desires of the people, assuming that the people are smart enough to even make those kinds of decisions (which studies seem to show that they are not).  Even in a democracy such as America, you can see how flawed a process that can be. There always has to be a 1% whether they’re called kings, tsars, presidents or the corporate elites. So, tell me, who gets to decide who will be the 1%?  See the problem. The real issue isn’t whether it’s capitalism or socialism, it’s who gets to be in charge. Ocasio-Cortez wants to be the one in charge, to be the one who gets to tell you which personal freedoms you’ll have to sacrifice on the altar of socialism and to be the one to tell you how much in additional taxes you’ll have to pay. Now, that’s what I call a New Deal.

 

Epilogue

There’s a reason why communism has never worked.  Russia, Cuba and Venezuela should be a reminder to us all. The reason is that when there is no incentive for people to get ahead, there is no incentive for them to contribute either. Everyone has to share equally, right? Eventually, everyone does share equally because everyone is equally poor.  Well, not everyone.  We forget sometimes that regardless of whether a society has capitalism, socialism, fascism or communism, there always has to be a ruling class. There always has to be a 1%.

 

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.”

Nancy Pelosi may be presiding over the destruction of the Democratic Party.  There’s a long list of former core constituents who have been jettisoned by the DNC. No more liberals of the Bernie Sanders ilk.  Not to worry, though, since the nomination was stolen from Bernie many of his supporters were leaving the party anyway (#walkaway). No more unions, since the Dems previously sent those jobs overseas, particularly to China.  Now, with the fight over the border wall, the Dems will be losing Hispanic votes too since illegal immigration threatens Hispanics more than any other single demographic.

But wait, it gets worse. There is an internal revolt within the party which will result in a three-ring circus with respect to the 2020 Democratic Party nomination.  Many people will run and yet so few have any real prospects of winning.  They will literally eat each other up. It will be Pelosi’s job to keep the party from imploding as the various factions fight for power and in the process wreck the party’s chances for winning the presidential nod.

First, there are the far-left progressives with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the limelight, even though see can’t run herself. The progressives are backed by all the people who don’t work and want the government to support them.  There’s actually a lot of those what with half of all families with children receiving some sort of government assistance and they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with. Then, we have Tulsi Gabbard.  What a thorn she’s going to be.  Previously a Bernie Sanders supporter, Gabbard, an Iraq war veteran, is surprise… an anti-war candidate.  With the rest of the Democratic Party pretty much against the pullout of troops from Syria and Afghanistan, Gabbard will force the other candidates to justify their position of endless wars abroad. Believe me, Trump will be listening and profit by that dialogue.

And poor Nancy Pelosi.  She will be told to steer the party to a candidate that supports wars, which most certainly will not be Tulsi Gabbard. She will be left out ala Bernie Sanders.  As for foreign policy, the candidate will have to be on the Russia boogie man train.  That’s because so many inside The Beltway have sold out to the Chinese who are, in reality, the real threat to the country.  Meanwhile, Nancy just can’t help herself what with her confusion over the immorality of building a wall that she has previously been in favor of to leaving town on junkets during the government shutdown.  Congress is even talking about passing legislation (The Pelosi Rule it’s being called) to keep lawmakers in D.C. during any future government shutdown.

In the end, Nancy will be trying to manage the fringe lunatics on the far left who are against free speech and prefer communism to capitalism and the Deep State, including corporate titans such as Google, Amazon and Facebook as well as the military industrial complex.  Sounds like a trainwreck waiting to happen, if you ask me.

 

“When people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic”.   – Benjamin Franklin

 

 

William Barr is currently being questioned before the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the confirmation process of his becoming the new Attorney General.  The Democrats on the committee, like Kamala Harris, are all playing nice nice with him. That’s due to the aftereffect of the Judge Kavanaugh SCOTUS confirmation hearing, or more simply the Kavanaugh effect.  Therefore, expect that Barr’s confirmation is already a foregone conclusion.

Now, earthquakes have aftershocks but the Barr confirmation hearing has resulted in what I call a pre-shock. A big pre-shock is what happened today when Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller blinked.  By that, I mean that the Special Counsel did something totally out of character – he refuted a report from BuzzFeed that Trump instructed his personal attorney (Michael Cohen) to lie to Congress.

Here’s the backstory behind the BuzzFeed article:

  • BuzzFeed stands by their story which came from an admittedly unverified intelligence dossier.
  • One of the two BuzzFeed reporters who published the story hasn’t even seen the evidence that the BuzzFeed story is supposedly based on.
  • The other BuzzFeed reporter has been criticized in the past for claiming sources that he didn’t really have.
  • It was BuzzFeed that also released the now totally discredited “Steele Dossier,” the Russian collusion narrative.

So, why did Mueller make such a rare public statement when he never comments on ongoing investigations? Why, indeed? It’s what I call the Barr-effect.  His soon-to-be new boss is none other than William Barr.  Yes, that William Barr.  How would you explain to your new boss that you allowed a fake news narrative to remain publically unchallenged where it could be used as fodder for the impeachment of the President?

And that’s what I refer to as the Kavannaugh-Barr effect. It’s Beltway politics at its finest.

Pop quiz hotshot. What does Brexit, the Yellow Vest Movement and Donald Trump have in common?  The answer: Civil War.

In England, the British voted to have their country exit from the EU (Brexit). However, the Parliament and the British establishment have so far refused to let that happen.  Why?  Because they are aligned politically with the EU.

Comment:  Strange how Parliament called for the Brexit referendum and then when the election results didn’t suit them, they reversed course. Sure sounds like treason to me.

 

In France, the citizenry are in open revolt (the Yellow Vest Movement) against Emmanuel Macron and his government.  They thought that they were a free country.  After all, what was the French Revolution for? Didn’t it give them freedom from the ruling class?

Comment: Apparently not according to Macron, who told the French that, “nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” So, now over 200 years later the revolution continues.

 

In America, Donald Trump rode into power on the back of a wave of citizen dissatisfaction with their government.  Yet, two years into his presidency, he has been unable to fulfill many of his campaign promises. He can’t even get a little wall built.

Comment:  Well, apparently the Wall hasn’t been built because it’s immoral. As for the rest, the Deep State is ensconced on both sides of the Potomac (aisle).

 

There’s one other thing that England, France and the United States have in common politically.  They are all ruled by the triumvirate of The Vatican, the City of London and Washington D.C.  Bottom line: The powers that be will try to keep England in the EU by any means necessary.  Civil War rules the day.

 

 

“Our plutocracy, whether the hedge fund managers in Greenwich, Connecticut, or the Internet moguls in Palo Alto, now lives like the British did in colonial India: ruling the place but not of it. If one can afford private security, public safety is of no concern; to the person fortunate enough to own a Gulfstream jet, crumbling bridges cause less apprehension, and viable public transportation doesn’t even compute. With private doctors on call and a chartered plane to get to the Mayo Clinic, why worry about Medicare?” – Mike Lofgren, The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government
