What The Hell Is Going On? - Part 3

Tyler Durden's picture

Via Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform blog,

In Part One and Part Two of this article I revealed how the Deep State’s fake data and fake news propaganda machine can be overcome by opening your eyes, observing reality, understanding how Fed created inflation has destroyed our lives, and why the election of Trump was the initial deplorable pushback to Deep State evil.

“The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.”H.L. Mencken

“This new regime will enthrone itself for the duration of the Crisis. Regardless of its ideology, that new leadership will assert public authority and demand private sacrifice. Regardless of its ideology, that new leadership will assert public authority and demand private sacrifice. Where leaders had once been inclined to alleviate societal pressures, they will now aggravate them to command the nation’s attention. The regeneracy will be solidly under way.” – The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe

We are now seven weeks into the Trump presidency and it seems like seven years with amount of incidents that have occurred before and since his inauguration. When in doubt, Trump’s brain dead, hyperventilating with hate, opponents either blame the Russians or declare him Hitler. The histrionics displayed by the low IQ hypocritical Hollywood elite, corrupt Democratic politicians, fake news liberal media and Soros paid left wing radical terrorists over the last two months has been disgraceful, revolting, childish, and dangerous.

A counter-revolution by the gun owning normal people in the 85% red area of the country that voted for Trump would not be a pleasant experience for the paid protesters, vagina hat wearing feminazis, and the safe space anti-free speech lefties on campuses across the land.

I must admit I love Trump’s pugnacious style. I love how he treats the despicable corporate media. I love how he responds to baseless accusations by his contemptible opponents on the left and right. The representatives of the Deep State – Schumer, Pelosi, Obama, McCain, Graham, Kristol, CNN, NYT, Washington Post, MSNBC, Soros, and anyone else willing to confront Trump are met with disdain, contempt, and abuse from the president. I love that he continues to go on the road and hold rallies with the people who elected him. I love how he demoralized his opponents by giving one of the best State of the Union speeches in history.

I love how he put his opponents back on their heels by accusing Obama of wire-tapping Trump Tower. No punch is taken without two being thrown. He will never conform to the way the liberal corporate media and his opponents want him to behave. Twitter is the dagger he uses to avoid the fake news media filter and plunge into his opponents hearts. The faux journalists despise his use of Twitter. When you see the violence beginning to break out between Trump haters and Trump supporters, and read stories about Obama leading an insurgency to undermine Trump’s presidency, every normal person must be prepared to do whatever necessary to support his radical agenda of draining the swamp.

“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”H.L. Mencken

The fake news media scoffed when Trump declared what an awful economic mess Obama had left after eight years of a debt fueled Keynesian failure of epic proportions. These fake journalists are good at looking stylish, speaking in serious tones, and reading false narratives written for them by their corporate bosses, but impartially assessing our economic situation is beyond their pea brain comprehension.

The eye opening chart below shows you how far we’ve come since 2000, or how far we’ve fallen, depending on your point of view. It looks to me like Trump has been handed a bucket of shit by his egotistical sociopathic boastful predecessor. Obama can now concentrate on his true passions – his NCAA pool and golf – while Trump is left to try and clean up a $20 trillion mess.

The Bush and Obama administrations frittered away any chance for a sustainable long-term economic paradigm by fighting unnecessary wars of choice, expanding unfunded entitlements, and allowing Wall Street and their Federal Reserve puppets to fraudulently pillage the nation’s wealth. Trump has been left with a debt saturated stagnant economy with rising interest rates and declining corporate profits. This is where reality meets slogans like Make America Great Again.

This is where understanding what happens during Fourth Turnings keeps you focused on what is likely to happen, not what you wish to happen. Slogans and false hope don’t fly during Fourth Turnings. My natural skepticism kicks in when politicians, including Trump, make promises that are mathematically impossible.

I know we are less than two months into his presidency and no legislation has actually been submitted, let alone passed, but impartially assessing his wish list of economic priorities makes me uneasy. I’m not hubristic enough to declare his presidency a failure already, like Karl Denninger, Paul Craig Roberts and some other blowhards. Judging a man before he’s actually done anything tells me more about the judger rather than the man being judged.

He has certainly made some questionable cabinet choices and the number of senior advisors with ties to the Vampire Squid on the Face of America (aka Goldman Sachs) is worrisome. But whenever my doubts about Trump’s agenda begin to surface, I immediately picture the crooked globalist Deep State tool Hillary Clinton making the State of the Union speech last week. And all is well with the world again. My mental funk would be a full blown suicide watch level depression if Crooked Hillary was running the show.

US Debt and Budget

But that isn’t going to keep me from pointing out the mathematically provable impact of his plans on the budget. We already have a $20 trillion national debt, with 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 years old every day for the next decade. Annual deficits are already on automatic pilot to reach $1 trillion over the next few years. This is reality. Slogans won’t change it. Hope won’t change it. Delusional optimism by consumers won’t change it. With this backdrop, Trump has proposed the following economic initiatives:

  • He’s vowed to not touch entitlements, even though they account for 50% of current spending and will grow to 60% over the next ten years.
  • He’s vowed to rebuild the military, with 50,000 more soldiers and upgrades to fighting hardware, at a cost north of $50 billion.
  • He’s floated the idea of a $1 trillion infrastructure plan.
  • The border wall will cost between $15 and $25 billion.
  • His tax reduction plans will add between $2.6 trillion and $3.9 trillion, after accounting for increased growth, over the next decade.
  • His much discussed tariffs on foreign produced goods may result in jobs staying in America, but will surely result in higher prices for people buying those goods. Whether this will be a net positive or net negative is open to debate.
  • With inflation beginning to accelerate, interest rates will rise. A 1% rise across the yield curve would result in an additional $200 billion per year in interest, a 50% increase from the current level of $400 billion.

Discretionary spending only accounts for 15% of the entire budget. There isn’t savings anywhere near the level of spending increases baked into the budget, let alone Trump’s new grand spending plans. If Trump gets everything he has proposed, without touching entitlements, he would depart in eight years with a $30 trillion national debt and an entitlement crisis just over the horizon. Of course, the likelihood of reaching $30 trillion in debt without triggering a global financial catastrophe beforehand is about as likely as Trump making a sobbing apology to Obama for accusing him of wiretapping Trump Tower.

As I stated at the beginning of this article, I am less sure about just about everything, as time goes on. Every day I see pronouncements from people I respect like David Stockman, Chris Martenson, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber and many others predicting a great crash in the immediate future. They will be right eventually, but they’ve been saying the same thing for the last five years. I agree with their reasoning, but I’ve given up on predicting the timing. They all have one thing in common – their living depends on you buying their newsletters and books. Certainty about looming disaster sells. Since my living doesn’t depend on selling anything, I’m comfortable pondering possibilities and trying to understand how the mood of the country will ultimately propel the unfolding events of this Fourth Turning.

Trump has been referencing the 16% rise in the Dow since his election as proof his proposed economic policies will create millions of jobs, 4% GDP growth, and a new economic boom. That seems a little bit disingenuous, as during the debates and on the campaign trail he said the stock market was a giant bubble. He said the Fed had created multiple bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate with their QE and ZIRP “Make Bankers Rich Again” schemes. Of course, he was right.

His honesty was refreshing. When an extremely overvalued market rises another 16% over a four month period, one might ponder whether we’ve got a blow-off top in progress. Certainly the brainless spokesmodels on CNBC or the bevy of Bloomberg stock shills paraded on camera to bloviate about why this seven year Fed induced bull market is just getting started, will not be telling Joe Sucker to sell.

Any honest financial analyst, who has taken a Statistics course in college, knows whenever something is 2 standard deviations beyond the mean you have a rarely occurring extreme outcome. In fact, the average stock has only been more overvalued one time in stock market history – 2001. Since that market overvaluation was solely driven by dot.com stocks, median stock valuations today are even higher than 2001. This isn’t opinion or survey data.

Doug Short and John Hussman have used impartial valuation metrics which have been accurate for over 100 years. These valuation levels are 160% above historical norms and imply a market crash of 50% to 60%, which would only bring the market back to historical averages. I wonder how many Boomers and GenXers could survive the third stock market bust in the last seventeen years.

The cock sure Wall Street analysts are as smug about this market as they were in 2000 and 2007. They scoff at the possibility of a 50% crash even though the market crashed by 45% in 2000/2001 and plummeted by 51% over a sixteen month period in 2008/2009. As usual, there are a myriad of ridiculous rationales for why it’s different this time. There will always be absurd justifications for outlandish valuations made by those whose paychecks depend on the greater fool theory.

John Hussman, Doug Short, Robert Schiller, and dozens of other rational thinking, honest, data oriented people are right. But that doesn’t mean the market won’t go up another 20% before the inevitable collapse. I have no idea when it will happen, but it will happen. Considering we are in year nine of a twenty year or so Fourth Turning, with the worst part yet to come, I’d venture a guess we will see the next financial crisis during Trump’s first term.

The nattering nabobs of nonsense at the Fed and in the financial mainstream press insist their monetary machinations over the last eight years have not created inflation. They clearly believe in the theory of the bigger the lie, the more likely it is to be believed by a math challenged, technologically distracted, normalcy bias ridden populace. Anyone who thinks the $3.5 trillion of QE money was to help the people on Main Street is either a government bootlicker or an establishment crony paid to spread false propaganda. In addition to the BLS under-reporting inflation by 100%, the Fed’s monetary inflation was pumped straight into the veins of the monetary drug addict Wall Street banks.

While Main Street wages declined and senior citizens have gotten minuscule increases in their life sustaining Social Security payments, the Wall Street bankers, who committed the greatest control fraud in world history, have gotten record bonuses and the freedom to fake their profits through legal accounting fraud (mark to fantasy).

The purpose of TARP, QE and ZIRP has been to sustain, enrich, and keep in power a ruling class of sociopaths hell bent on pillaging the last vestiges of global wealth from unsuspecting citizens. Jamie Dimon believes everything done by the Fed and Treasury has been wonderful, as he plays tennis in his $5 million opulent NYC penthouse suite. Meanwhile, your granny has to decide between her overpriced heart medication or groceries driven higher by the Fed generated inflation.

I don’t know when the center will give way. I don’t know when the stock market will crash. I don’t know when the Federal’s Reserve and other central banks’ shamefully reckless and illegal monetary machinations will blow up the world. I don’t know whether Trump will succeed or fail in his quest to drain the swamp. I don’t know whether the Deep State forces will take him out. I don’t know whether a civil war is on the horizon. I don’t know whether a global military conflict is in the offing. I don’t know when this greater depression will be revealed in all its glory to the millions of people with their heads up their asses in denial about reality. But, I do know whatever happens during the remainder of this Fourth Turning will be driven by debt, global disorder and civic decay, just as it has from the beginning.

I don’t know what the hell is going on. And more often than not, I don’t care anymore. I’m tired of howling at the moon, with no result. Life gets put into perspective when a family member is struck with a totally random health issue and you have to see them suffer through treatments that make them sicker than the actual condition. I know times are going to get much tougher. I have no misconceptions Trump can somehow reverse the course of the US Titanic after it has struck the iceberg of debt.

I believe what’s wrong with this country is unfixable. I think Trump’s legacy will be the tearing down of the corrupt, decrepit, self-serving, evil status quo. His in your face, no holds barred style so angers the established social order; they come out of the shadows to fight him. The sinister intelligence services and Soros/Obama left wing terrorists are being revealed as the true enemies of the common people. We know our enemy. That’s the first step.

I will do my best to get my kids through college debt free as long as they pursue a serious degree. I will continue to pay down my mortgage debt as quickly as possible. I will try to deal with my own health issues and help my wife deal with hers. We will take care of our aging mothers. Family will always come first. We’re only on this earth for a short time and while I get intellectual satisfaction from trying to change hearts and minds through writing, the only thing that truly matters to me is my wife and the futures of my three sons.

I’ll prepare to the best of my ability for the worst, while trying to enjoy the present. Over the last nine years we’ve created a dysfunctional family of internet misfits on my website. I feel an obligation to keep that alive, especially for the talented writers who have blossomed with an open platform for their views, even though my own enthusiasm has been waning for a while.

I’ve tried my best to seek truth, reveal government deception, and generally be a thorn in the side of the establishment. Based on Mencken’s definition, I’m a dangerous man to the government, who has spread discontent among those capable of thinking things out for themselves. You may not realize it, but the war has already begun. No matter what the hell is going on, I sure hope the good guys win.

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.”H.L. Mencken

It's not a 4th turning, it's the end times.

Fukushima was a worldwide extinction event, that nobody talks about.

This woman I know in San Francisco is a Christian, she will often protest abortion and such.

I was talking to her and this 20 yr old homeless girl with a dog came by and she said "How are you? Would you like to take a bath?" The girl said "I would love to take a bath" She said "Come up to my place in an hour"

No she is not a pervert, I heard her have some wandering guy sleep on her couch once too.

She said "her parents were hippies..."

True love, total respect. Not something I would do. She is a better person than I am.

it depends if you think the media entirely owned and controlled by jews has has america under a 100% 
balls to the wall psyop against the only president ever to be elected that isn't owned by one of the central bank's arms.
if the answer is no then you are in the matrix in my opinion and are unable to relay reality.

if the answer is yes, then you can see this complete destruction of the only thing a news organization has,
as a hail mary to over throw trump by that propagandas asset's owners.
how major was this effort? one story or 2 years of nonstop anti trump shit on every mind control issuer of jew programming
until they have all become worthless jokes with a fraction of the viewers the new media has like alex jones, joe rogan, styx, right side ect...

the jews efforts can be expressed in shekel output and sheckle wasted george soros (jew nazi oddly enough) alone spent 3 billion dollars 
on blm, women's rights march, and any other division cause seen in america.
the owners of the media the jews spent their only capitol their credibility, which is today zero. so how many sheckles is all the media worth?
radio tv and hollywood? this total number of effort can be seen as the opposition force against trump...they have lost like their arch criminal shill hillary.

all the above is a given and frankly fun to watch happen over the last couple years

but now we are through the looking glass, and my suspicion is that AS HARD AS the, lets just call them the "media jew" tried to tank trump saving america,
from all the propaganda/programs/programming the have enslaved us with since ww2. the second set and much more dangerous set of... lets call them the 
"banking jew" is watching their merchant brethren fail, and my question is will the banking jew, destroy all they have, as the media jew has trying to destroy trump?

lets look at the only evidence we goy are allowed to see, the market and technical analysis, how does the banking jew blow up the market, with his banks and his federal reserve.
you run things up stocks, bonds, houses..., have a blow off top and then you correct. ill let you deduce what i think is happening.

You can see that this world has been set up, like a bowlin' pin
Knocked down, it get's to wearin' thin They just won't let you be, oh no.

There are cycles and seasons. All things are born into existence and they have their time. It appears that this world will not survive it's technolgical information age as it puts too much power in too few hands. If you believe in Satanic influences then you must ponder that the events and people set in motion do not necessarily know they are working for the same boss. In fact they could be working to bring not an orderly end, but pure chaos.  I'm not sure if those who still believe in the rule of law can oppose those who fight for "Social Justice"  If Satan represents chaos then these are his minions, willing to kill and destroy any they are programmed to hate. They have reached critical levels across the world. How much more will decent people take? How much longer will they be decieved?  Beats me, but ain't life grand? WALSTIB

Like Quinn, and I suspect most boomers, I too have lost all hope in good conquering evil.  I have come to despise the US and her people, the vast majority who are entitlement eating zombie parasites.  Unlike Quinn, my children are grown up (neither have any college debt), and I have 4 grandchildren whose world they will live in I worry far more about.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Paul Kersey's picture

Quinn missed a few major things. We are told that the national debt will top $20 trillion this year, but what we are not being told is what happened to all that money. Well, over $32 trillion has been extracted (stolen) from the citizens of this country and now sits in the offshore accounts of Fortune 400.

Also missing from Quinn's magnum opus is the prediction that 80% of today's jobs will be lost to automation over the next three decades. Today we already have a record number of working age males out of the workforce. In the future, these underemployed times will look like the good old days.

Quinn says that there is no fixing the U.S. economy, but what he doesn't say is that there is no fixing the world economy. The world's central bankers are all working in concert with each other, making the financial oligarchs richer than medieval kings by impoverishing everyone else.

And finally, while Quinn explains, point by point, how Trump's economic plan is a giant ponzi scheme, he still tells us that "Trump’s legacy will be the tearing down of the corrupt, decrepit, self-serving, evil status quo". So if Trump is blowing even greater debt into the debt bubble, and doing so with his team of corrupt Goldmanites, then how can he be "tearing down of the corrupt, decrepit, self-serving, evil status quo" at the same time?

At the end of the article, Quinn brags about his website and about the brilliant comments he gets from his minions. What he offers, however, are few, if any, solutions, other than paying down our mortgages and saving money so our kids can go to college. So what happens when we no longer have the money to pay our constantly rising property taxes, and our kids get out of college with degrees that will be obsolete in a few years?

Jubal Early's picture

Yup.  And he still is a 911 denier and he still won't name the jew.  But I am repeating myself.

Paul Kersey's picture

Quinn states that he works for a major university. If true, if Quinn doesn't deny what really happened on 911 and 'names the jew', then he is out of a job.

Jubal Early's picture

So he constantly bellyaches about current affairs, discusses how bleak his existence is and how he only lives basically for his sons, and he continues to work for an organization that forces him to remain silent about the root causes of his misery.  And you are cool with it.

I have quit several jobs in my life because I could no longer work for the employer due to his/its morality.  Quinn may or may not have tenure, but that isn't the point.  There are millions of federal, state and county parasites who should be ashamed of what they do for a living.  The entire military and military industrial complex should be ashamed of what they do.  And if you are ashamed of what you are doing or who you are doing it for, you should quit.  Anything else is at a minimum highly hipocrytical.  And as long as he works for that organization and refuses to tell the truth then that is all that Quinn dishes out in his rants: a continual stream of hipocrisy.

Paul Kersey's picture

"And you are cool with it."

I never wrote that I was "cool with it" or that I was not "cool with it". I just stated my opinion about Quinn's self-censorship. You are misinterpreting my statement. Your anger, at least in this case, is misplaced.

My problems with Quinn are that he brags about his former corporate success as if it was a badge of honor, and he uses this website to pimp his own website, without owning up to it. I don't have a problem with Quinn trying to build his readership, it's just the covert way he attempts to do so that bothers me. However, the compromises he has to make, in order to survive financially, are his business. I am in no position to judge a man who is doing his best to feed his family.

Jubal Early's picture

I see that you have been registered at ZH for about 1 year.  A while back there was a commentor who would always irritate Quinn about 911 and Quinn would write quite nasty replies.

I mention this so that you are aware that there is more to his 911 denial than just silence.  My guess is that he stopped reading, or at least replying to, the comments to his articles on ZH after so much abuse.

The vast majority of alt-right media is little more than an echo chamber of gatestone institutes and breitbarts ranting about muslims.  Although I don't want any Muslims near my community or even in my country, I recognize that this is really just a symptom.  Immigration laws accross the west were not simply eliminated because feminists became horny for muslim sperm.  There is a far bigger plan behind it, and Quinn is knowingly helping to keep it covered up.

Paul Kersey's picture

First of all, the Gatestone Institute is Likudnick/neocon, and not alt-right. The Gatestone writers, who are predominantly Jewish, hate Muslims, while the alt-right people (like Richard Spencer) are predominantly goy and hate Jews. If you understood these folks, then you wouldn't lump them together.

I checked out Quinn's site about a year ago. When people disagree with him, he slams them, using the most vile language, and encourages his okey dokey ditto heads to rat pack the dissenters. And you are correct in implying that if you have read one of Quinn's rants, then you have probably read them all.

My personal opinion on immigration is that if we don't need these people, and they can't survive here without government subsidies, then they should not be allowed in, regardless of their race or religion. I think New Zealand is on to something with this policy:

"Residence for entrepreneurs
'Self-employed' is...

Lawful, active, full-time involvement in the management and operation of a business in New Zealand which you have established, purchased, or made a substantial investment.

Self-employment does not include involvement of a passive or speculative nature.

The Entrepreneur Residence Category allows you to live in New Zealand permanently if you have established a high growth and innovative business with export potential in New Zealand. There are two ways of qualifying for residence under this policy:

Entrepreneur Residence Category (2 years) - Requires you to have successfully established or purchased a business in New Zealand and have been self-employed in that business for at least two years, and for your business to have significantly benefited New Zealand.
Entrepreneur Residence Category (6 months) - This option provides a faster track to residence if you have invested at least NZ$500,000 in your business and have created a minimum of three new full-time jobs for New Zealand citizens or residents.
Under both options, you need to meet health, character and English language requirements."

Jubal Early's picture

I can't speak for NZ, but across Europe all those immigration and health laws that should have prevented the flood of invaders were ignored and th floodgates opened.  It was clearly a highly coordinated action.

As far as alt-right goes I guess it depends on whose definition.  Richard Spencer is certainly not welcome at Breibtard, Alex Jones, vdare, amren due to charges of anti-semitism.  I would say that as far as the "alt-right" is concerned Richard Spencer is a Neo-Nazi.

It's not the end times, it's the end of the 'age'.  It's true that the world as we've known it is falling apart.  We've elected this angry orange man President precisely because of that.  The formerly trusted authority is drawn into question like never before.  The snowflakes are reacting violently to a bogey-man entirely of their own making- and showing themselves to be the fools they are.

Lifetime pols are acting as if their hair is on fire.

These are good things.

Most of the indignant and misguided outrage of the hopelessly ignorant will subside with time.  They're trying to start a war and if successful, they will perish shortly thereafter.

Call me heartless, but that's good too.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants- pretty sure that was Jefferson.

Anyway, it's past time for a purge.  I may be among the first to go, but I'll go with dignity.

Sleep well, Ms. Dakota!

True that Chris. It makes me heartsick to think of my home and family going through the edge of abyss called the Tribulation. We will go through everything until the bowls that contain God's wrath are poured out, but 1/3 of the earth's population will be destroyed before that happens. I give Quinn a thumbs up for his discourse, as it speaks to our age.


Unimaginable horror awaits us all, but those of the faith in God and his son will look forward to the end, for we know where our home is. It is the unknowing that eats at us all, but we sense and feel it in the air. That is why I have stored rice in sealed 55 metal food grade drums, have 40 chickens, 12 goats, and land to defend. We don't know what our individual futures hold, but I have an obligation to my neighbors and family to help them survive the coming storm. Prayer is your most effective tool and weapon for spiritual warfare. Guns and bullets most effective for physical. Prepare accordingly....

I believe that things can go to hell in a handbasket all by themselves (the thermodynamic property of entropy) but things can only get better when nearly everyone works together to make them better. Unfortunately what we seem to have is a substantial percentage of the population actively working to make things worse.

What scares me is the result of liberal welfare programs, where an increasing percentage of our working age population is unwilling or unable to contribute to society. I don't know at what point the house of cards comes crashing down, but I do know we are getting closer every day.

Entropy, indeed. The creation of the Dept. of Education and Reagans failure to kill it went a long way towards where we are today. Add in illegal immigration, H1B visas, loss of manufactuering, quantitative printopia for 0.25%, quite literally money for nothing, chicks for free.

Yes, that whch cannot be sustained, won't be, period. Nature will sort all this out whether we like it or not.  We are part of Nature and no amount of mental masterbation can change that.

Exactly. I keep hearing how Trump's deep state people are the good guys while Hillary's deep state people were the bad guys. Uh...sure. Sounds like slaves debating which boss is easier or harder with the whip.

While every one is getting riled up about Trump and his opponents' all acting like buffoons, the truth will show up over the next four years. Personally, I am betting on wealth staying concentrated in its current hands while crumbs are shuffled and tossed around to make a big noise about how things are changing when they really aren't.  I would also bet that things in general will be worse in four years, not better. Some of it will have to do with Trump himself, some with politics, some his opposition, some our screwed system and some with just where we are as a country. Time will tell.

The good guys are the people who want to restore the Republic.  Our greatest danger lies with the charlatans who would have us embrace the darker sides of our natures so that they can either retain or achieve power. There are members in each of the factions who want a culture and race war so that they can drive their perceived enemies into extinction.  Psychopaths will seize the opportunity to ride our emotions to include our greatest fears and our greatest passions into power.  We very easily could fall under the influence of a new Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot.

We have been in decline since the early 1970’s.  That decline is now accelerating.  Creative bookkeeping and the force of arms have given the appearance of keeping the wolf outside the door.    Fraud is a mirage.  That mirage is now fading; the stark reality that confronts us is unraveling the nation. The wolf is through the door.  He is now in the pantry eating the seed corn.  Trump is as great a catalyst as was Lincoln when he stepped into the White House.  Few people imagined that his arrival would usher in a civil war.


One of the cheerleaders of that war was Leroy Pope Walker.  He asserted from the bully pulpit of the Alabama Legislature that all of the blood that would be shed in a war between the states could be wiped up with a handkerchief.  His inability to properly assess the coming storm cost him his promising political career, a good bit of his fortune and his state its liberty.  Miscalculation is the norm for our species.  Very few of us get it right

The good guys are anyone NOT a prog, wog or nog. Get rid of them all.

Awful lot of truth in all three parts. "Just 63 and Don't Mind Dying" but hopefully a lot of the turds in the nation will go with me by my hands or others of like mind. Pray for my son and his future and trying to have the right things to pass down to him. America, the part that counts, will shrug it off and find a way to survive.

I do not trust anyone who does not support major tariffs. Only someone with an idiots understanding of economics, liberty, and nationalism would think they are a bad idea. Short term pain be damned. It is an existential issue.

Except to some degree you have a choice about paying them.  Not so true with labor & the income tax. Or property tax.
