Well, we’ll still have POT.

 

 

 

 

Let me start by saying that I am not a global warming denier. In fact, far from it.

 

I can best sum up my position by saying, when the world doubles coal and oil consumption in 20 years, something MUST be wrong environmentally.

 

If you know anything at all about refining or mining, they are nasty businesses. Oil is nasty shit. The end-product of oil refining is really nasty shit. Rather than launch into a diatribe on Global Warming, this article by George Church sums it up pretty well.

 

   “Even for the ultra concerned citizens, almost all the suggestions are not about how to prevent an exponential release, but how to slow down the inevitable.”

The general problem with much of the political left is not that they’re wrong.

 

If they were flat out wrong, refutation of their positions would be easy. The problem with liberals is that they’re arrogant.

 

I’m sorry, but a university degree does not make you intelligent in anything other than that major. And, in fact, if you didn’t go to a top 50 college, or get solid A’s in a state college, you may not even be intelligent at all. The difference in entry level SAT (An indicator of preparedness, not intelligence) is simply too vast, in most cases 300-400 SAT points, to make top and middle tier universities equivalent.

Does the emperor really have no clothes? 

 

The thing that makes Al Gore dangerous is that he’s a politician and a capitalist. His motivations are to get elected and get rich. He failed at the former and was extremely successful at the latter.

 

The simple fact, as can be attested by George Church, (link above) is that there isn’t a rat’s ass chance in hell that the world is going to make meaningful enough dent in CO2 emissions to matter.  As the USA has cut it’s CO2 emissions 380 million tons in the last ten years, China has increased theirs 3 billion!

 

The only way the US could put a dent in China’s CO2 emissions would be to stop importing.

 

Yet much of the trade between the US and China was instigated by Gore. (and Clinton) It was Clinton/Gore’s free trade, banking and accounting rules changes that set off the race to destroy the planet.

 

Let me let you in on the world’s best kept secret.

 

Political parties intentionally pick unsolvable problems to promote.

 

For a political party, problems become industries. They build coalitions around them, including PACS, fund raising committees and university support groups. They hold strategy sessions and recruit well-meaning but increasingly dim-witted college students to support them.

 

For Al Gore, global warming is manna from heaven.

 

It gets him invited to film festivals surrounded by beautiful women invited for the free drinks. It allows him to make a killing hocking useless technology and gives him a permanent seat at the leftist bridge table. For university leftists, it gives them another opportunity to thumb their noses at the deplorables that they hate with even cell in their bodies.

 

How does this make Al Gore the most dangerous man in the world? For the world though, it shifts attention away from the breathtaking destruction of our planet that free trade and unlimited money creation has caused.

 

It’s distracts us from the single biggest issue since the 70’s; population control. It’s given the world’s biggest polluters of air and water a free pass, all the while turning our politics into toxic waste and dividing the electorate.

 

It’s been estimated that 1 in 4 Chinese will die of respiratory failure from inhalation of soot.

 

Global warming will remain the main political problem in the US until someone attempts to solve it. If that day comes, they’ll change the subject. This in and of itself makes Al Gore, and men like him, the most dangerous man in the world.

 

Thanks Al. Hope you’re enjoying that private jet of yours.

 

PS: Something to ponder.

This is a statement from Church’s artice, linked above.

“There’s more carbon in the Arctic tundra than in the entire atmosphere plus all the rain forests put together.”

If CO2 causes global warming, how can all that carbon end up in tundra?

 

 

US – The Largest Immigrant Resettlement Country In The World

Of course, 

Nothing matters

if we’re stoned.  

 

The German newspaper DW, again took to spinning truth by claiming Iran, unlike the US, will allow US citizens with visa’s to stay… Let’s take a look at the Travel Warning issued by the US government in August during Obama’s rein:

 

“The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Iran.”

 

Why? “Because Iranian authorities continue to unjustly detain and imprison U.S. citizens, particularly Iranian-Americans, including students, journalists, business travelers, and academics, on charges including espionage and posing a threat to national security. Iranian authorities have also prevented the departure, in some cases for months, of a number of Iranian-American citizens who traveled to Iran for personal or professional reasons. U.S. citizens traveling to Iran should very carefully weigh the risks of travel and consider postponing their travel.” 

 

A Japanese female journalist writes a scathing denouncement of Trump’s temporary immigration and refugee Order citing America’s history of failed policies.

But let’s take a look at Japan’s immigration policies:

 

1) They have taken in exactly 6 Syrians.   2)   The ‘Entire” foreign population in Japan represents roughly 1.75%.   3)   In order to gain nationalization in Japan the rules are quire strict including the fact that the immigrant must be able to provide for themselves and their family, they must have resided in Japan for a minimum of five years after the age of 21, and they must have a squeaky clean record.   4)   The largest immigrant population is Chinese, followed by Filipino’s and Koreans. 5) The total number of Iranians in Japan is estimated to be about 6000.

 

Canada: While puffing out its chest like a rooster in heat ready for a fight, the Canadian PM said they would take refugees!

 

Really?   Because as of last count they had about 321,000 total immigrants in their entire country!   A stark contrast to the 41.4 million that now reside in the US!   In 2009, they established a program to resettle refugees from Iraq. The program was to be over a five year time frame and the number allowed was raised from 12,000 to 20,000 total – or about 4,000 per year… Whoa, don’t hold your hat.

 

Australia: While their population is now said to be made up of about 27% immigrants, approximately 82,000 come from the countries banned by Trump which would represent 1.4% of all immigrants. Hardly a monumental triumphant podium from which to bash Trump. 

 

Number of Iranians living in the UK? About 86,000, but they aren’t sure… Number of Somalians? About 114,000.

 

The US purportedly houses well over one million Iranians – but then, we aren’t sure…  Still, that huge discrepancy would not seem to penetrate the mouth and brain of India Knight, a British journalist born in Brussels who has spoken unabashedly against Trump for his outrageous policy of securing the US borders on a temporary basis – at least until we can actually ‘know’ how many immigrants we actually do have!!

 

France? The last time the government even bothered to take a census was 1999, the total number of Iranian nationals in France was estimated to be about 9700.

 

Germany? The capital of refugees? Their Iranian population is less than 10% of that of the US.

 

But Trump and the US have become the bomb bastion of bastardly blathering bald badlands, defiled by a bunch of blithering bad-mouthed beastly bourgeoisie beleaguered bullies.

 

THE US IS THE LARGEST RESETTLEMENT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD FOR REFUGEES.

New York is broke: Take it to the bank.

 

But it won’t matter 

if we’re all stoned.

 

Contrary to what you might think, I did not pick a 2021 New York State bankruptcy date out of a hat. That was the date Jeffrey Gundlach gave as the date the 10-year treasury bond would hit six percent.

In economics, things don’t happen for a single reason.

 

They happen for several reasons, sometimes hundreds of reasons, cascading together. For New York though, it can be narrowed to a few.

 

1) New York’s economy is based on several bubbles that have created more bubbles.

There is, of course, the stock and bond market bubble which is the primary source for the giant $1.5 trillion GDP of New York City. This has led to a massive real estate bubble in NYC that has poured into Albany and Buffalo.

 

2) New York’s pension and state welfare programs are insolvent.

 

To be sure, the state’s pension is funded far better than most other states. The problem is, #1 above. New York, like most states, assumes it will earn 7.5% per year on its pension assets. Because of the bubble above, they’ve earned that in spades.

 

The problem is, (at least according to GMO) the next 20 years they will earn 2% per year. I’ll do the math. New York has $200bn in pension assets. They assume they will earn $15 billion a year. At 2% they’ll earn $4 billion. The other $11 billion will be made up by taxes.

 

That’s $11 billion – in new taxes – per year – for 20 years.

 

Certainly, other states have bigger problems, but other states don’t have as big a pension with such absurd payouts.

 

That’s $2,200 in NEW taxes for every family in New York. Which brings us to #3.

 

3) You can’t do business in New York.

 

New York’s tax, regulatory and political environment is so bad, businesses are leaving New York faster than you’d leave a burning hay loft. In New York, you can’t manufacture, frack, drill, mine and in fact, it’s so bad Amazon can’t even sell books here.

 

In their desperation, they’re begging companies to come here.

 

Amazon is only one fiasco. The Tesla plant in Buffalo is not economic after the state paid $247 million to build the plant. The biggest recipient of the Buffalo Billion was just incarcerated. Their huge milk processing plant in western NY, open less than 4 years is shut.

 

But it’s not just companies leaving, it’s people.

 

Even though technically, New York only loses 48,000 people per year, 190,000 leave and 140,000 immigrants move in. New York City has 3 million immigrants, 550,000 of which are illegal. 6 in 10 immigrants in New York are on welfare. This is 2 million people!

 

Welfare recipients do not pay taxes.

 

Contrary to the rhetoric, they do not add to the economy. Most get cash benefits, food stamps, medical are and the earned income credit. EIC is a refundable credit. That means you get credit even if you don’t pay taxes.

 

In other words, New York is replacing its taxpayers with welfare recipients.

 

None of these programs are, in and of themselves bad. They cost the US a little compared to what they spend, for example, on the Pentagon. The problem for New York, though, is demographic. They are losing productive people, people they pay to educate.

 

Bankruptcy isn’t the end of the world.

 

In fact, it’s not even a bad thing. But keep in mind, a calamity in the financial services industry will cause even greater problems in New York since they manage financial assets.

 

Furthermore, to get the 10-year treasury bond to 6%, (not a particularly high rate) interest rates would have to more than DOUBLE. With the 10-year at 6% mortgage rates would be above 10%. This means the average house would lose 50% of its value.

 

I can assure you when this happens no one will care about Global Climate Change.

 

They won’t care about gay marriage, what name is emblazoned on bathroom doors or how many vagina’s Donald Trump grabbed.

 

They will be melting tar and tearing apart pillows.

Catholic Church – Child Predators

 

The Catholic Church is embroiled in a pit of fire surrounding the ongoing, heinously sinful child sexual abuse that has permeated the Church for likely centuries.  

 

This past weekend Pope Francis held a televised live broadcast in which the discussion of this rampant egregious deed was discussed.  And yet, the entire event came across more like an infomercial than a real self-evaluation repentant matter with constructive solutions.

 

1)   Survivors of abuse were ‘disallowed’ from entering the conference – it was a closed door event.

2)   Senior Cardinal Marx announced that files on abusers were destroyed.

3)   Pope Francis was aware of the atrocities and did virtually nothing to bring justice against his house of criminals.

 

How do these truthisms bring belief, faith, or hope that the Vatican is really serious about doing anything? Instead, it makes the entire conference look like a sham, a flim-flam media posture event.

 

Francis was installed as Pope, March 2013. 

Will Your Children Be Cyborgs?

 

Over the last few decades there have been 2600 accusations against Priests in the US alone.  All of these allegations were transcribed, the offender was named, and a file created.   It would appear, the Church destroyed many files, meaning each successive Pope was aware of the allegation, and instead of bringing justice, they sought to destroy the evidence. 

 

No evidence – no allegation – Priest cleared.

 

The conference was attended by just 200 participants…  mostly Bishops.    But in 2018, six Dioceses in Pennsylvania found these same Bishops were guilty of covering up evidence of Priests abusing upwards of 1,000 children.  So in essence, Pope Francis is putting these same morally convicted wolves in charge of guarding the chicken coup.  Obviously it has worked well in the past…

 

But even that knowledge doesn’t break the surface of corruption that was plagued the Church for ‘decades’, I would think it is more likely centuries.  

 

In the late 2000’s, Pope Benedict XVI sanctioned Cardinal McCarrick of Washington DC for abuse allegations.  Two of the allegations remain ‘sealed’ from the public, others were destroyed.  And despite, the statement by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano that he instructed Pope Francis about the sanctions and allegations in 2013, Pope Francis turned a blind eye and repealed the sanctions.  Why?  If Pope Francis really wanted ‘justice for the children’ as he commanded the Bishops at the conference in Rome, why then did he repeal the sanctions of abuse on his own Archbishop?

 

But it is worse.  The Vatican and multiple Bishops received reports of McCarricks ‘transgressions’ for decades before anything was done at all.

 

The history of the abuse within the church was not even addressed by the media until the 1980’s, within the auspices of the Franklin Scandal, and the UK Jimmy Savile sensational story.  In both instances, pedophilia, abuse, was asserted against numerous high profile persons in the US and UK, including entertainment and sports figures, politicians, doctors, lawyers, and anyone with a lot of money to spend.

 

Like the Catholic Church pedophilia scandals, neither of these two scandals provided justice in any form whatsoever to the victims. 

 

And in most instances, the victims were actually further victimized.  No one went to jail.  No one was sanctioned.   The stories were so high profile, so backed with $$$$ that to this day, one person was charged, Jimmy Savile.

 

To think that a conference of a handful of corrupt Bishops presided by a corrupt Pope would yield anything different, is like slapping Weinstein on the wrist and demanding that he write 500 times, “I will not ever do that again…”  With his fingers crossed behind his back.   “Pinky swear.”

 

Some media outlets tend to blame the Priesthood’s rule of chastity as their defense and justification.

 

And while their manhood might be difficult to subjugate, child abuse is not a normal evolution.   Pedophilia, is not a normal evolution.   A Priest, a Bishop enter the Church promising to uphold chastity as a part of their dedication.   If they don’t believe this is acceptable, there are numerous alternate religions that espouse Christianity that do not adhere to this particular conviction.  They have – a Choice.

 

One of Pope Francis most revered authoritarians was Romano Guardini, who wrote extensively of Christian Socialism.   Guardini embraced such philosopher’s as Nietzsche, Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle, who advocated Atheism.  Under his pre-Pope name, Jorge Maria Bergoglio, Pope Francis was not bereft of drudge and accusations, including his purported facilitation of the kidnapping of two Jesuit Priests during Argentina’s Dirty War. 

 

These Priests were then subjected to horrific torture.

 

Complaints were filed.  And despite one of the Priests coming forward and claiming the Bergoglio was indeed complicit, and not only reluctant to help, but allegedly involved, the case was – dismissed.

 

Why? Money talks.

 

And so, this is the Pope. This is the Francis who claims that – now – suddenly – the children deserve justice.   This is the person, the man, the power vacuum that wields the whip of Catholic Doctrine and by default, core religiosity.  He sits behind the gated, walled, city of the Vatican that is guarded by the most elite soldiers in the world, equipped with infinite guns and ammo, to protect the men and their wealth who have confiscated their bounty over centuries in the form of art, real estate, stocks, and gold.  All the while telling the sheep what is real, what is truth, what is history, and what is – sin.

 

While living – the Dream.
