One of the big LIES the media-industrial complex tells us is there is no inflation.

 

This is, to anyone with eyes, ears and a functioning brain, the biggest lie. Inflation is and has been rampant and it’s especially true with the hyperinflation of stupid media content.

 

One area VERY few people see as inflationary is media content. To see this, you have to take your “price” hat off and think of cost.

 

What does “paying attention” mean?

 

The words have a meaning and a reason. There’s a COST to paying attention. Even though psychologists have dabbled in the idea, advertisers know it well. They have a concept called shelf space. That’s the area of your brain they own, and they use it to sell you shit.

 

The media USED to be a medium you learned from. Today, it’s a medium where you have your beliefs aped back to you.

 

It’s been probably three decades since the media abandoned its quest for quality content. In the era of Disney and Harry Potter for grown men and women, what’s the point?

 

If you look objectively at content, 99% of media content is useless. This parody courtesy of YouTube tells the story perfectly.

 

To see this, don’t look at the content you disagree with. You’ll automatically think its bullshit. Look at the content you AGREE WITH. You’ll notice something inflationary. The majority of “news” is obvious, he said, she said bullshit.

 

One of my favorite media bullshitters is Tucker Carlson.

 

I truly admire Tucker. He’s carved out a great niche and is a smart businessman, He lost me though when he started charging $10 a month for “Patriot content.” Does this guy really think sending him ten bucks makes you a Patriot? YES!!! He does!!!

 

These guys have the gall to position their $10 patriot pledge next to images of Normandy! Let’s get real. The only way one can really honor the fallen is to take their place in the cemetery. All the obligatory patriotic bullshit on earth can’t compensate for having your son or daughter’s life snuffed out at the age of 19 simply so Charles De Gaulle, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin don’t lose their seats at the bridge table.

 

Very little of what Carlson says has any real intrinsic value. Donald Trump is President. He has, constitutionally, little authority to do much, other than bomb countries and tariff imports. In the time one spends as a “Patriot” reading Carlson’s content, you could learn a foreign language, plant a garden or become a heart surgeon.

 

THIS is hyperinflation. The high cost of “paying attention” to bullshit news that has zero value.

 

The media, in its entirety has pretty much fired all the real content creators they used to have and now create he said, she said bullshit. Not only don’t I give a shit what Rosie O’Donnell has to say, I resent having it tossed in front of my face every time I turn on a media source.

 

The good news is that now that social media channels have set new terms of commercial stuffing, we will have incentive to turn it off and read content blogs. You can learn more in a single article by Helena, or Nassim Taleb (as an example) than a week of mainstream media.

Economists have a concept called hedonic adjustment. That’s where a person switches from a high-priced product to one with similar benefits but a lower cost. The cost of “paying attention” has grown too high.

Prince Harry has made three mistakes that could be existential to his future.

 

1) He married a divorced American B actress that’s three years his senior.

 

2) He publicly befriended Barack Obama.

 

3) He attempted to disrespect the President of the United States.

 

Queen Elizabeth has spent her life covering for a family that has been an embarrassment. It’s as if the family is in constant self-destruct mode. Harry is the latest example.

 

Did the Queen threaten to take away Harry’s allowance?

 

One can only speculate on what the slap in the face conversation was like. “Who do you fantasize fights America’s wars? Transgenders? The military is almost by definition deplorables. It’s filled with people from rural areas that need jobs.”

 

In my opinion, Harry has done existential damage to the US-English alliance. The US is war weary. What idiot is going to join the army to defend a country that has a parade with the US President texting from a toilet?

 

England has always been a country that fantasizes about its power and its past. Contrary to the blather, they cannot project their military. Any attack on a British “interest” would have to involve the US. Had Reagan not intervened in the Falklands, the Brits would have lost the war. This their own commanders said.

 

Were that not enough, Harry may have split England in half. Trump is nowhere near as unpopular in the UK as the media tells us. There is a large percentage of Brits that are tired of being told they’re bigots for not allowing unlimited immigration.

 

 

 

It’s not only the fact that Harry has a black wife, he also refused to invite both the President as well as MEGAN’S FATHER to their wedding! This is because her father is a low life? Hmm, let’s see, Harry has an uncle that was in Epstein’s orgy island a few dozen times, another that dated a porn star, a mother that dated 8 different men while she was married, a grandfather that slammed into a woman’s car and wouldn’t stop to see if the woman was alive and a father that wouldn’t stop seeing his girlfriend while he was getting married.

 

No one has had a JOB in the Battenberg (excuse me, Windsor) family since the middle ages.

 

That’s because being a royal IS a job. Harry’s job was to be a royal, which for hundreds of years has been to NEVER APPEAR POLITICAL. This is why the queen has smiled through dinners with despots, pasha’s, emir’s, kings, tribal chiefs and Nazi’s.

 

Harry could have opted out and got a real job. He chose to marry an American, be a TV idol yet still claim he’s a royal. This was his choice and getting scolded publicly by grandma is the price.

 

It’s starting to look like in the queen’s wake, the only grown up in the room is Kate Middleton. IMO, she will be the defacto leader of the royals when Elizabeth passes on. She’s already had to child-slap her husband, who seems to forget he’s married.

 

As I said before, England’s best leaders are like it’s best rock stars.

 

Queens.

 

Goodbye Harry. You lasted 34 years. That’s a long time for a royal.

Trump’s Visit to the UK: A Spectacle of Alice In Wonderland

 

 

 

It’s a tactic that was used in Congressional inquiries. You state your case and then take the 5th. In other words, state your case and not allow your detractors to take theirs.

 

Mueller had no need to formally close his office on C-Span. It was already closed. The reason he did it was simple.

 

The noose is closing, and he needs impeachment.

 

Much of what Mueller said was a flat out lie. They don’t have evidence that thr Russians hacked Hillary Clintons emails. The only “evidence” was from Hillary Clinton herself. They never looked at her server.

 

Furthermore, they never investigated the fact that she erased 36,000 emails, never mentioned that those emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop or that Hillary was sharing classified information with Sidney Blumenthal.

 

But you know this.

 

This press release is for Nancy Pelosi, who he is pinching. Imagine Pelosi’s dilemma. She cross examining a witness and all of a sudden, Barr indicts Peter Strzok! Hahaha.

 

All the while Pelosi is claiming Trump obstructed justice, Barr is arresting the very people who Trump supposedly “obstructed.”

 

You can’t make this shit up. Oh, wait. They are making this shit up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One can only laugh. Normally, when you think of a spoiled, narcissistic, bloviating mall rat you think of Hillary Clinton, but Angela Merkel is her stunt double.

 

When she announced she was, (gasp!) leaving the chancellorship, the (leftist) world was stunned. I wasn’t. I knew her planned two-year retirement date was bullshit. Liberals cling to power. Witness the most recent stint of victory laps Hillary has been taking after losing the election and you get a sense for Merkel.

 

Germany is a horribly run country. Their banks are near insolvent, they have, effectively no Army, they have to pay retirement benefits to millions of poor east Germans, are being flooded by refugees and have trade surpluses with bankrupt trading partners.

 

If the US had to balance its budget, it could slice a half a trillion and nobody would notice. Germany has no flexibility. 50% of their GDP is government expenditure and it’s almost all social welfare spending. What’s worse is if NATO were dissolved and they were forced to defend themselves, the EU would cease to exist.

 

Germany has some of the worse energy security in the west, which was exasperated by Hillary Rodham Merkel’s getting rid of their nuclear reactors. They need Russian natural gas, but the middle eastern countries have bribed the piss out of US leaders to the point where that is almost impossible.

 

Consider the repatriation of refugees. Why are they in Germany, a country with the highest standard of living in Europe? You could settle them in Romania, Lithuania, Latvia or even Sicily at 1/10th the cost of putting them in bloody Wiesbaden. In fact, you could put them in Sinai and they’d be in a Muslim area that virtually uninhabited.

 

Germany needs freedom, not to be part of a massive bureaucracy. They need a government that’s not run by Goldman Sachs, George Soros and 1,000 leftist NGOS’s. They won’t get it as long as Merkel is chancellor. They need to stop being so PC, shed their war guilt and emerge as a country again,

 

They need to become a monarchy.
