The Dems have gone crazy

Eight years ago Obama said “You lost. We won. Get over it.”

The next morning tens of millions of Republican voters got up, got dressed, and went to work. I hope that most of them ate breakfast before leaving but I have no influence there. Nobody tried to change the election results. They were accepted as they stood.

Contrast that with the present hassles. The results were clear on the election night. Very few people on the Democratic side accepted the results. Many rioted, although we know now that many of the rioters were paid.

There were many attempts made to change the votes of the members of the Electoral College. Some of these attempts included death threats. This has never been done before.

The simple fact is that Hillary was the worst candidate any major party has fielded within living memory. Anonymous said flatout that she is a career criminal. The Dems decided, wisely in my view, not to mention her character or her past accomplishments in their campaign. They could not work on Trump’s past accomplishments so they tried to besmirch his character.

He had been in business for about 50 years. He was never accused of being sexist or racist until he ran against Hillary. A black woman who is an executive in one of his companies made a public statement that she had never seen any evidence of sexism or racism from him or his organization. The fact that a black woman was in that position in an industry that is mostly male is itself proof that he is neither.

During the campaign Hillary stated that she would bring in 660,000 Muslim refugees in one year, much more than the 100,000 Obama had threatened to bring in. Most people oppose this so she lost a lot of votes. She called for confiscation of all guns, forgetting that by some estimates more than half of the households have at least one gun. She called conservative voters undesirables.

She hardly campaigned at all. This was either due to the poor attendance at her rallies or her health problems. Her rallies drew dozens of supporters, unlike the tens of thousands who attended Trump campaign events. At her last campaign event a couple dozen Trump supporters went to the meeting location and seriously outnumbered the Hillary supporters. As soon as she arrived they began chanting “Lock her up.” She did not even get out of the car.

Seth Rich told someone, obviously too many people, that he went to the DNC to work for a political party. He discovered that it was not a political party. It was a branch of organized crime. As I wrote above, he told too many people that he was going to the FBI. He was shot in the back. That proved his contention about organized crime. Six or 8 other people died during the campaign when they did things that made Hillary look bad. After the second or third one someone wrote that Hillary had her hit man on speed dial.

The previous head of the DNC had to resign when it was proven that she had cheated for Hillary against Sanders. The current one has to be replaced because she cheated for Hillary against Trump. The leading candidate is eminently qualified. He is a hardcore Communist and a Muslim. He has contributed a few thousand dollars of his own money to a Muslim terrorist organization. The other prime candidates are almost as bad.

Someone recently wrote that the Communists want to take over the DNC completely. I fail to see how an organization that is based on these policies can gain favor with the public.

It looks like the Republicans will push voter id laws through in some states. A few weeks ago I wrote that in 2012 Romney carried every state that requires voter id and Obama carried the others.

The best published estimates state that 6.9 million people were registered to vote in more than one state, 4 million dead voters were on the list and 3 million non-citizens voted. That is 14 million votes and I doubt that Trump got more than 14 of them.

Some people have stated that Trump is just like Hitler. This was astonishing to me. One of Hitler’s first moves was to set up a group of thugs, usually called the brownshirts, to physically attack and harass members of other parties. This sounds like the BLM and the “protesters” who have been hassling Trump supporters for the past year.

One peculiarity of this past campaign is that the protests continued after the election was over. They made all sorts of protests and then began harassing the members of the Electoral College. One amusing sidelight is the girl who was set to sing at the Inauguration. She received lots of messages telling her that making this appearance would end her singing career. When the public was told about this sales of her album quadrupled.

The “protesters” who went to Washington to cause trouble at the inauguration must have all been unemployed. If you had a job you would not take a week off work and travel hundreds of miles to protest anything so trivial. Many if not most of them were not motivated enough to vote themselves. Obviously someone paid them to go there. That someone is either George Soros or a close associate of his. Soros’ first job, and one that he stated he enjoyed the most, was seizing property from Jews and giving it to the Nazi party. His actions indicate that he is trying to establish a new Nazi party in the US.

The authorities in Washington have arrested a couple hundred of the “protesters.” They can give them prison terms and huge fines. They can, logically enough, demand that they pay for the damage done. This is necessary to prevent thugs from taking over the country. It is basic to employment law that the employer is financially responsible when an employee commits an infraction during working hours. “Protesters” who were paid to go to any of the protests in the past year can be held financially responsible for damages and if they can’t pay then their paymasters can be charged to pay for the damages.

IMHO some of the “protesters” will look at 10 year prison sentences and try to make a deal with the prosecutors. They will testify against whoever paid them to go to the DC riots. Their paymasters can be held responsible for damages caused by the riots.

The US election is finally over.

This was the most divisive election ever. The bad feelings got going a couple of years ago after the Trayvon Martin case. The cleverly-misnamed Justice Department sent in community organizers to stir up the problem.

Obama stated publicly that if he had a son the son would look like Martin. He knew that the photo he was referring to was several years old, when Martin looked like a nice young boy, not the hardened criminal he looked like near his death. This is the only time I have ever heard of a government trying to stir up hatred against their own police.

Later, when Ferguson happened, the feds sent in their community organizers to stir up resentment against the police. IMHO this was an insane thing to do. The same happened in Baltimore.

The Democrat National Committee interfered in the primaries to make Hillary their candidate in preference to Bernie Sanders. This in spite of the fact that he drew tens of thousands to his rallies, while she drew a couple hundred at most of hers.

Hillary’s campaign could not use her character or her previous accomplishments so they settled on stirring up hatred against The Donald. The Justice Department and Soros’ front companies attacked Trump supporters in many different locations. Many of these “protesters” were sent in from other states. In far too many places they were allowed to harass Trump supporters. Interestingly some of these “protesters” have since complained that they did not receive the money they were promised.

Wikileaks did a fantastic job in publicizing things that the US domestic media would not touch. The media acted as a publicity department for the Dems and Hillary.

The very appropriately named Anthony Weiner unexpectedly provided real data for the NYPD and the FBI to use against Hillary and the big pedophile ring in DC. O’Keefe published videos showing Dems plotting to subvert the election process. One of the Dems is quoted as saying that they have been busing people in from out of state for at least 50 years. No wonder they are opposed to voter ID laws.

I was surprised when the leftists began rioting after the election results were known. As nearly as I know this has never happened
before. Eight years ago Obama said “You lost, we won. Get over it.” The next day millions of Republican voters got up, got dressed, and went to work. Nobody even thought of rioting about it.

Some of the “protesters” were paid and were brought in by bus. Some of them had not bothered to vote themselves. Many police forces were ordered to stand down and let the rioters do as they pleased.

I laughed and laughed when I read about the students who were coddled by their colleges, to the extend of providing coloring books and play-dough. They did not seem to understand that you cannot win every election.

I laughed when the recounts came in. In one state Hillary won less than half of the regular ballots but about 90% of the absentee ballots. We all know what that meant. The stories about people working in Democrat offices filling in absentee ballots were true.

The future direction looks clear. Obama has been stalling the investigation of Fast and Furious but the investigation will go on in late January. It could put Obama and Holder in jail. The people who call themselves Republicans but were opposed to Trump are very unlikely to be renominated. They will slow down some of the changes but the big changes will go ahead.

The investigations into Hillary and the Clinton Foundation will continue until they come to logical conclusions. A few months ago Anonymous stated that Hillary is a career criminal. I can’t think of any other reason for the people who presented problems to Hillary died at such a fast rate. 8 or 10 people died under mysterious circumstances when their continued existence was embarrassing to the Clinton campaign.
This is what you would expect for a mafia campaign, not for a campaign run in a democracy.

The way forward seems clear. The Dems have to clean out the mess in the DNC. Seth Rich told too many people that he had hired on to a political party then found he was working for a branch of organized crime. He was murdered for this. His murder proved his point.

The leading candidate to become head of the DNC appears to be a Marxist who has made contributions to a Jihadist terrorist group from his own money. If they decide to go with him they will have to cheat like hell to get any of their candidates elected, assuming that they are able to find candidates.

It looks like the beginning of another political dynasty, with Ivanka taking over the top job 8 years from now. It seems likely that Trump and his merry group will slow down the collapse of the USA but it is too soon to tell this. It is even theoretically possible that they can reverse the decline but I would not bet on it happening. I think that the rot has advanced too far.

The Collapse of the NFL and possibly the NBA

A couple of years ago Dr. Daniel Amen made several videos, which I saw on TV, about brain injuries, and especially those caused by playing NFL football. Retired players were examined and many of them were found to have diminished brain power due to the brain injuries in general and concussions in particular that they had suffered. Lawsuits began to fly. All the NFL teams realized that they had a big expensive problem on their hands. They have probably atill not decided exactly how to proceed.

A few nonths ago an athlete named Tim Lebow was severely criticized for praying on the field. The media all said that he should keep his religious preferences to himself. When Colin Kaepernick knelt instead of standing for the national anthem the same media praised him for making this gesture in public. The League commissioner came out in support for him.

He appears from the photos to be about one quarter black and about three quarters white. There is nothing to be gained by claiming white status so he claims to be black. He was adopted by a white couple while he was still quite young and brought up as their son. When this came to a head he was making a reported 16 million dollars a year for playing football. It is difficult to see why he thought that he was being discriminated against.

The public reacted by staying away in droves. In mid-December I saw a photo of the stands at a San Francisco 49ers game. The stadium was about three quarters empty. Unless there is a big increase in TV revenue, which seems quite unlikely given the circumstances, there will be no more million dollar salaries for NFL players.

The NBA also has a problem. When Mark Cuban came out in favor of Hillary in the election campaign fans began to stay away from the games his team played. I still cannot understand how a successful businessman can favor a person who Anonymous described as a career criminal over a successful businessman. Since the election his team and a couple of others announced that they would not be staying at any Trump hotels. Attendance at their games is sinking fast. Some of the people who do go to the games only go because they have already paid for season tickets. Of course this also applies to the NFL.

Unless something big happens over the coming summer I expect the sale of season tickets, and of TV rights, to both leagues to take a big hit. The teams that have promised very high salaries to players will be in big trouble. They will not be able to pay their bills. Some of them will probably have to go bankrupt.

The Collapse of the Democratic party

A recent report said that 8 years ago Obama said “You lost. We won. Get over it.” Republican supporters survived. Some of them may not have been happy about it but they got through it.

For some reason the Dems do not seem to be able to follow this advice. They don’t want to admit that they nominated the weakest candidate in living memory. Instead they are trying to upset the election results. They got votes from between 2 million and 4 million dead people. They got votes from 6.9 million people who were registered to vote in more than one state. They got votes from about 3 million people who were not citizens and therefore ineligible to vote. They got votes from thousands of jailbirds from Virginia and California. Even with these they lost.

I believe that they are in a state of collapse.

Since the election the brass at one internet SEO firm, Pepsi, and Kellogg’s have decided to come out publicly against the election results and Trump supporters in general. Apparently they don’t believe in democracy.

Macy’s has made a fantastically stupid mistake by deciding to protest by stopping sale of Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. If she goes out of the clothing business she will have to choose between working with her brothers or going to Washington to help her father and then succeed him in office. I saw a rumor that she is house-hunting in the Washington area. How would the mental pygmies at Macy’s react to a president Ivanka Trump?

The Democratic National Committee has come in for some well-deserved criticism. Seth Rich told someone that he had gone there to work for a political party and discovered that he was working for a branch of organized crime. He told the wrong person so he was murdered. This proved his point more than anything else could.

Nancy Pelosi was re-elected to head the Dems in Congress. She stated that they do not need to change anything. What type of defeat would they have to suffer to convince her to change something?

Subsequent reports said that the DNC decided in 2004 to run Obama as their candidate in 2008. Apparently they did not even bother to read the back cover of his book. The bio there listed Kenya as his birthplace until 2005. This was clearly negligence on their part.

Reports say that in 2008 they told Hillary that she could be the candidate in 2016 if she stopped fighting Obama. This seems to be why they stacked the deck against Bernie. They took illegal actions against him. The chairperson of the DNC had to leave in disgrace when this was discovered. Her replacement has to be thrown overboard for cheating in the election campaign by illegally sending questions to Hillary.

The leading candidate for chairman of the DNC is strongly connected to Islamic terrorist groups. He even contributed a few thousand of his own money to one of them. Hillary chose a running mate who also has strong ties to terrorist groups. Are the Dems trying to become known as the party of Islamic terrorists?

I subscribe to the belief that governments are very rarely thrown out of office by opposition parties. Generally they defeat themselves by getting out of touch with their public. All the opposition party has to do is present a credible alternative. If the Dems continue on their present course I can’t see them presenting a credible alternative in any reasonable length of time.

One More on the US Election

Until early October the situation seemed to be clear. A few months ago Soros, the largest US supporter of Hillary, wrote that Trump would win the general election in a landslide but that Hillary would win in the Electoral College. He said that this had already been decided, which I took to mean that all of the people who needed to be bribed had already been paid off. As the campaign progressed Wikileaks and Anonymous took on the role of journalists that had been abandoned by the presstitutes. Every week they published more data, and most of it was unfavorable to Hillary.

In mid-October I read that the Clinton Foundation had transferred 1.8 billion dollars from the US to a bank in Qatar. I knew from earlier reports that Obama had purchased a mansion in Dubai early this year. Neither Qatar nor Dubai allow residents to be extradited to the US. It looked like Obama and the Clintons wanted to be out of the US before they could be charged with treason or election fraud.

It was a big surprise to me when the Russians published, on the 28th or 29th of October, that the Clinton Foundation had purchased 137.7 million dollars worth of arms and ammunition. The report stated that the delivery date would be mid-November, the destination the US, and it named the receiving groups. These were all organizations that received money from Soros and doled it out to political action groups like Black Lives Matter.

On the 28th or 29th the Russians sent a message to the CIA asking what was going on. It is not clear to me how anyone can justify using funds from what is called a charitable organization to buy arms to give to a group of thugs. I do not know what if any reply they received.

By my estimation a pound of armaments costs about $100. By this estimate I get a weight of 700 tons for these arms. They can be shipped by air or by sea. The head of the arms smuggling group is in jail in the US. On the day of the purchase he was moved from the general prison population to the country club section. This indicates to me that either Obama or Lynch was in on the plot.

To get these arms into the US through Customs someone has to get either the military or the TSA to take them through. Someone has to make these arrangements.

I believe that the Russians know what is going on. In Putin’s position I would order that the shipments not go to the US regardless of how many people have to be killed. If they go by sea they will be torpedoed.

It is hard to imagine why Hillary campaigns to make it more difficult for private citizens to get guns to defend themselves from thugs and then provides millions of dollars worth of guns to organized groups of thugs.

Here is the original article that I got from Facebook.

Russia Asked CIA: Why Did Hillary Clinton Just Buy $137 Million Worth Of Illegal Weapons?
A shocking Foreign Intelligence Service report is circulating in the Kremlin today. Reveals that the Security Council (SC), this morning, authorized the sending to the American Central Intelligence Agency of an emergency communiqué requesting an immediate explanation as to why the democratic presidential nominee’s money laundering organization, known as the Clinton Foundation, this past week, purchased over $137 million of illegal arms and ammunition—and whose destination is to be the United States, with delivery being marked as “mid-November 2016”.
VIA Whatdoesitmean
According to this report, SVR analysts began expressing “urgent concern” earlier this year when the main “elements/factions” of the feared Viktor Bout’s international arms smuggling crime organization began arriving in the Republic of Albania—that is the only Muslim nation in Europe.
Viktor Bout, this report explains, is most popularly known in the West as the “Lord of War” for his workings with the CIA to smuggle illegal weapons throughout the world to further the maniacal interests of the United States—until 2011 when then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had him jailed.
Though a citizen of the Federation, this report continues, the SVR had no “complaint/concern” with Hillary Clinton having Bout jailed for 25 years as it was an internal matter of the CIA—but whose intelligence analysts expressed “worry/confusion” this past May (2016) when US Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin said he should have had a reduced sentence—and that led, yesterday, to Bout “suddenly/magically” being transferred out of maximum security to the “country club atmosphere” of the general ward of the US Federal Prison he’s been confined to.
Coinciding with Bout’s “mysterious/magical” prison transfer yesterday, this report notes, was Hillary Clinton’s money laundering Clinton Foundation transferring $137.7 million to the Socialist Party of Albania (SPA) controlled by that nations Prime Minister Edi Rama—who is not only the head of the Xhakja Clan (known in the West as the Albanian Mafia) but who was, also, and shockingly, put into power by the Obama-Clinton regime over the protests of the Albanian people who did not want a “mafia government” controlling them.

With Hillary Clinton’s international arms merchant Prime Minister Rama having turned the entire Balkan region into one of the world’s largest areas for arms smuggling that now threatens its very security, this report warns, she has been aided in this effort by what many are calling her “puppet master”—the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros that recently released, and shocking, secret emails show him ordering Hillary Clinton to install this mafia criminal as the leader of Albania.

To fully understand why Hillary Clinton made this massive arms purchase, and no doubt was aided in doing so by the CIA’s arms smuggler Viktor Bout, SVR analysts in this report explain, is her adherence to George Soros’s radical vision of open borders—and that he singlehandedly began implementing by creating the European refugee crisis that will, likewise, engulf the United States should Hillary Clinton become president, and as exactly as her secret emails reveals she plans on doing.

Also, this report continues, and as the Federation knows all to well, the Soros-Clinton “master plan” to take down a nation begins with the establishment of what are called Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) to act as a “shadow government” ready to take power once the established order is thrown into chaos by massive protests—and why, in 2013, President Putin banned them from operating in Russia.

In the United States, however, this report grimly states, the American people have no defense against these “shadow government” NGO’s—and that SVR intelligence assests have documented in this report as being the “receiving parties” of Hillary Clinton’s massive arms purchase and include the George Soros created NGO’s called: Open Society Foundations, Media Matters, American Institute for Social Justice, The New America Foundation, The Migration Policy Institute, Tides Foundation, Center for American Progress, and the Democracy Alliance—every single one of which stands violently opposed to the US Constitution and the American people.

Once these weapons are in the hands of Hillary Clinton’s “new revolutionaries”, this report continues, they will then be used to unleash a “terror wave” across America protesting Donald Trump’s landslide victory—thus enabling President Obama to declare martial law to disarm all of these people, and once doing so, allow the US Electors to place Hillary Clinton in power. [Note: American presidents are NOT elected by the voting of citizens, but by the vote of the Electors selected from each of that nations 50 States.]

This report sadly concludes, though, by noting that the massive vote fraud already being committed by Hillary Clinton’s “new revolutionaries” throughout the United States, and that led this past week to former US Congressman Joe Walsh stunningly stating “If Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket”—a reference to one of the darkest times in American history when that nation’s ordinary citizens banded together to fight the British Empire for their freedom—should strike fear into all Americans of what Hillary Clinton’s “new revolutionaries” are doing right now—and if not, nothing will.

The Collapse of the US Empire – part 2

The collapse has been proceeding much more rapidly in the past 8 years. Things that would have been almost unimaginable have been happening regularly.

Corruption in Washington has reached into every aspect of government. One group of observers has determined that the average return on each dollar paid to a lobbyist is $760. That is outrageous. Each legislator is paid 174k. The average senator increases his or her net worth by more than 1.2 million per year.
How much time and energy do you think they are putting into the nation’s business and how much into lining their own pockets?

When the TARP bill went through in 2008 there was more than 200 billion in pork barrel spending attached to it. If you cut the pork barrel to 200 billion that comes to an average of over 373 million for each legislator. Divide that by 25000 per vote and this is an average of almost 15000 votes. I used 25000 because the last figure that I have for pork barrel spending said that it takes that much port barrel spending to get one vote.

Voter fraud has reached humongous proportions. I recently saw a video of the election commissioner for New York City. He said that many of the candidates hire buses to move voters from poll to poll on election day. He was asked why he did not do anything against it and he replied that he had to abide by state law. The poll workers there are not allowed to ask for ID.

Ballot boxes stuffed with ballots for Hillary have been found in at least 4 states. There is no reason to believe that these were the only states where this happened.

In 2012 Romney carried every state that required voter ID. Obama carried all of the others. This week Lou Dobbs stated that his reading of the information released by WikiLeaks showed that one of every 8 voter registrations was wrong, and at least 2 million dead people are registered to vote. The Governor of California passed a law allowing felons in jail to vote. (It is generally believed that between 90 and 93 % of violent criminals identify themselves as being Democrats.) Another state governor signed thousands of pardons so ex-cons could vote. Another source said that over a million voters are registered in more than one state.

I do not know why the Democrats seem to believe that because they are following the path of Karl Marx they have the right to cheat, lie and steal to get power. It has been proven that Hillary’ forces cheated to get her the nomination.

I have to mention that the Obama administration has made space in the intelligence services for jihadists. Of course there are many in the State Department as well.

Consider also the campaign against law and order that has been mounted by the existing POTUS.

This began with the George Zimmerman case in Florida. The Communist News Network, which has since morphed into the Clinton News Network, published heavily-slanted accounts. They initially said that Zimmerman weighed about 235 lb and the deceased about 160. This was the first time I heard people described by weight without mentioning height. Later I discovered that the deceased was 6’4″ tall. When I was his age I was 6′ tall and weighed about 110. I would have taken on anybody of any size.

The media only published photos of the deceased that were taken 4 or 5 years earlier. The POTUS went on TV and said that if he had a son he would have looked like the deceased. After the whole thing was over I saw a photo of the deceased taken shortly before his death. He no longer looked like an altar boy. He looked like a hardened criminal.

The Justice Department sent community organizers to organize and manage the demonstrations against Zimmerman. These organizers tried to blockade the sheriff’s office to get him to lay a charge against Zimmerman. I do not know why the sheriff did not arrest the whole bunch.

When his trial was over Alan Dershowitz, a prominent law professor, said that Zimmerman should sue the government for defamation. It is unfortunate for all concerned that he did not.

In Ferguson, Missouri and in Baltimore the governments did not do very much to protect property. This is important because once the mobs loot and burn stores or businesses the owners may or may not get payments from their insurance companies. They cannot renew insurance policies or get new ones. You cannot open a retail store without insurance on the merchandise. This is one reason Detroit looks as bad as it does.

In Ferguson and Baltimore several Soros front companies brought in agitators from outside the immediate area and of course the Justice Department sent in their community organizers. The POTUS made public statements in which he praised the rioters and blamed the police officers for doing their jobs. Later he invited the rioters to the White House and congratulated them on doing a good job.

These rioters created problems at many Trump rallies. Many attenders were manhandled or assaulted by the rioters. In at least one case the police were ordered to stand back when the rioters attacked the people who wanted to attend the rally. Recently a video was published showing Democratic operatives illegally colluding with PACs. It also describes the way that they trained some of their people to attack Trump followers and taunt others into attacking them.

As nearly as I can find out the last time a political leader sent rioters out to physically attack political opponents it was Adolf Hitler and we all know how that ended up. It is really ironic that the media are now saying Trump is like Hitler. It is not Trump who sends out goons to attack political opponents, it is the Hillary forces.

I can’t resist mentioning the RINOs. (Republican In Name Only) They have never opposed anything that Obama wanted to do. This year they have opposed Trump at every turn. They seem to think that they can do this and then win the next election. They have spent so much time in Washington and away from America that they do not understand that after Hillary lets in a few million illegals and gives them voting rights the RINOs will not stand a chance of being elected again.

Since the first of June several people died mysteriously. The one thing connecting them was that Hillary disliked them. The first was Guccifer, the Rumanian hacker. He is supposed to have committed suicide, although he was not a suicidal person. I have seen 2 different accounts of his death and neither one was believable.

The man who served a summons on the DNC alleging collusion against Sanders also died. So did John Ashe, who we were told died when a falling barbell struck his throat. A man who had written 3 books about Hillary, all of them unflattering, went down too. Before his death he told many people that he was not suicidal, and that if he died unexpectedly Hillary would be the person responsible.

A man who was suspected of giving a copy of Hillary’s medical report to Wikileaks died a day or two after the release. Seth Rich was shot in the back. The second week of October a surgeon died. He had removed a blood clot from Hillary about the end of June. One suspicion was that he died because if he lived he would be able to tell people what Hillary’s read medical condition was.

After the second or third death one commentator said that Hillary must have her hit man on speed dial. No gangster, not even Al Capone or Lucky Luciano, had so many people murdered.

In conclusion I believe that if Hillary and her forces win this will be the end of democracy in the US and perhaps in the world. A Trump win would slow down the decline and possibly reverse it, depending on how well his party does in the Congressional races.

The Collapse of the US Empire – part 1

Due to my youth I completely missed observing the collapse of the Roman Empire. I began closely following the collapse of the British Empire by reading everything published about the collapse of the Empire’s outpost in Rhodesia in real time. I did not have anywhere near enough data to follow the collapse of the Soviet Empire.

I have lived all of my life in either Canada or Mexico. Both countries are closely connected to the US economy. The connection is one way only. For example if we say that the Canadian economy is 10 % of the size of the US economy because the population is 10 % as large then it becomes clear that if trade between Canada and the US is 40 % of the Canadian economy it is only 4 % of the US economy. A similar calculation can be made for Mexico. For these reasons I have been following the US system for many years.

The US Empire is often dated from the Spanish-American war, which was begun at the behest of William Randolph Hearst. The rot began to set in very early. The followers of Karl Marx in the US went by the name of Progressives. They realized that using the name Communist Party would turn off voters.

They established themselves in the educational system, especially teachers’ colleges, trade unions, the media, and the entertainment industry. About 30 years ago a young man reported that he had signed up for courses in journalism in a college in the eastern US. He told one of his professors that he had conservative viewpoints on politics and the economy. He professor was flabbergasted. He had never before heard of anyone with conservative views going into journalism. He could not understand how this could happen or why such a person would even be interested in journalism. This goes a long way to explain why the media always take the liberal or Progressive side of each issue.

The Progressives had big plans for big government. They knew that their big plans would need big money so they lobbied hard and had the Income Tax Act passed in 1913. In the same year they managed to get the Federal Reserve Act passed just as the Christmas holidays started. These two Acts were enough to set the stage for the next few decades.

In a book called None Dare Call It Conspiracy it was noted that in the 19th century a leading banker had sent letters to hundreds or thousands of banks telling them to immediately call in a large fraction of their demand loans. This created a sharp recession and allowed the conspirators to make loads of money on the way down and again on the way back up. By 1914 the Federal Reserve was on its way to create much larger booms and busts to allow the conspirators to profit both ways.

In the 1930s Roosevelt introduced Social Security. This was a huge win for the Progressives as they called themselves.

In the 1950s Martin Luther King, a Republican, led a movement to push forward the plight of the blacks who had been oppressed. Eisenhower, also a Republican, supported him strongly. Race relations improved enormously, and this improvement lasted until about 2013.

The first time I had to study economics I read all of Keynes’ main book, the General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. In it he wrote that a government should take in more money than it spent during the boom part of the business cycle and during the bust part it should spend more than it took in. He concluded that it was not necessary to balance the budget every year but instead over the business cycle. As nearly as I can tell none of the politicians who call themselves Keynesians actually read the book or understood that this if they acted on only the part about the bust part and did not try to act on the boom part, or the statement that it should balance over a business cycle.

Unemployment insurance and income tax act in the manner indicated above. They take in more money during the boom and less during the bust. These two programs alone could help stabilize the economy.
Keynes’ theory was later distorted out of all proportion by politicians who tried to use deficit spending to produce a permanent boom. This required constant inflation to keep going.

In 1971 Nixon removed the tie between gold and the dollar. The progressives were overjoyed because it meant that their production of dollars would no longer be limited. They could print as many as they wanted. The government elite stated that this was much better than a link to gold because the money supply should be increased at the same rate as the economy. They did not mention that now they could inflate the currency to its eventual value of zero, the same as all fiat currencies had in the past. Things began to go downhill much faster. They actually increased it much faster than that.

The downward spiral began to move much faster about 8 years ago. The new administration began to issue new regulations at lightning speed. Some of these were intended to make it more difficult for a new or smaller company to compete with companies that have political drag. Some of them seem to have been designed to make things more difficult for those nasty capitalists.

I have to mention foreign policy. A year or so ago a Swiss economist and investment advisor wrote that Trump might destroy the US but Clinton would destroy the world. His viewpoint was based on the mideast problems. Obama ordered Mubarak, a longtime US ally, to quit and hold an election. The only political organization in Egypt was the Muslim Brotherhood. They took power and the army had to remove them. As soon as Egypt went down Clinton turned on Libya. Gaddafi, like Mubarak, was a secular Muslim. Clinton armed Al-Qaeda in Libya while the US was fighting them in Iraq.

As soon as Gaddafi went down Clinton began to supply arms to ISIS. The US announced that they wanted to remove the government of Syria. The US Congress has not declared war on them.The Syrian government was not a particularly bad group as mideastern governments go. In fact it was probably much more representative than the Saudis or Qatarese that the US considered to be strong allies. The only reason for wanting to replace him seems to have been to get rid of a secular government and replace it with jihadists.

A lady who used to work with the CIA has stated for publication that Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian government has said the same. They have issued arrest warrants for Obama and Clinton. This makes it more logical to believe that the reason for overthrowing these governments was to replace them with jihadists.

Obama has said a lot about the US using moderate Muslims to carry on the war against Assad. Marco Polo defined moderate Muslims centuries ago. He wrote that a militant Muslim will cut your head off. A moderate Muslim will hold your feet while this is being done. I have never seen a better description. One report said that the US had spent 500 million training moderate Muslims to fight ISIS but most of those trained immediately went over to ISIS and took their weapons with them. Only about 4 were left.

The invasion of Europe by migrant Muslims has two basic causes. One is that after Gaddafi was removed from office the jihadist groups who are running Libya did not continue his policy of stopping migrants from entering Libya. This accounts for the large number of African migrants. The other is the war in Syria.

About a year ago Clinton stated that the US should establish a no-fly zone in Syria. She was told that this would require demolishing the Syrian antiaircraft bases, and that this would cause enormous civilian casualties because most of these bases are near the populated areas that they are intended to protect. She said that she was okay with that. The full implication is that Assad might have executed a few dozen people unjustly and the US response would be to kill a few hundred thousand innocent civilians. Do you see any logic in this? Does anybody?

Several months ago the Russians entered the war. If you know how to find Syria on a map you will see that it is on the Russian border. The Russians want to protect their Syrian ally. When the Soviets placed missiles in Cuba the US nearly went to war to stop them. Why should they be surprised that the Russians do not want another jihadist government as their neighbor?

Consider this as a war where there is nothing to be gained and a lot that can be lost. Hostilities are stepping up on both sides. The Russians have set up antiaircraft batteries capable of defending all of Syria. The US and Britain are fighting against ISIS and have threatened to shoot down any Russian plane that threatens them. This is only one step away from Russia and China sinking a few US aircraft carriers. Many observers believe that this would be easy to do.

The US have painted some of their planes to make them look like they are Russian. The objective seems to be to have them perform some atrocity that can be blamed on the Russians.

Donald Trump’s Tax Returns

Some of the Democrats have complained that Donald Trump has stated that he will not release his current income tax return until after the audit is finished. I think that this is reasonable.

Someone found a copy of his 1995 return in which he showed a huge Net Operating Loss. The calculation of the NOL is complex and difficult. I have only prepared a couple of them. They often take a couple of hours to fill in. The corresponding Canadian form takes only a few minutes.

The concept of Net Operating Losses is to decrease the effects of varying income levels. A typical one would be for someone like a realtor who made money when real estate was moving in the early 2000s and had huge losses when the real estate market died, because he was still making the same advertising expenses. Companies in mining or oil exploration would have the same problems. The NOL permits taxpayers to decrease the tax on other years to compensate for the losses of the loss year.

People whose income varies from year to year are quite likely to use NOLs. Some examples are a newspaper, a grifter, and an angel investor. I specifically mentioned these because the New York Times, Hillary Clinton, and Mark Cuban all used NOLs recently without realizing that they had done the same. I have no idea why Mark Cuban made such a stupid mistake. Until recently I thought that he was smarter than that.

I would not expect to see anything interesting in Trump’s tax returns in any case. Anyone buying real estate developments in the US has to form a new corporation for each project. If the address is 123 Main Street you would try to set up a corporation with a name like 123 Main Street Ltd.

This is necessary because there are huge numbers of lawyers who are looking for business and nearly all of them would be glad to get a chance to make a claim against a property owner. Many lawyers make a practice of filing trivial actions against companies like real estate owners in the hope of getting a quick out of court settlement. Trump says that he does not pay off these shysters. He makes them go to court. If there was only one or two it would be cheaper to pay them off than to go to court. He takes the position that if he paid off one of them he would be besieged by trivial lawsuits.

As a sidelight here, Al Sharpton’s daughter filed a claim against New York City stating that she had sprained her ankle because of something on the sidewalk. She went ahead and posted photos on the internet of her dancing in high heels later the day of her supposed accident, and climbing a large hill or small mountain a couple of days later. How stupid can they get?

To take money from a corporation to an individual owner is not difficult. The company can pay a dividend, a management fee, a director’s fee, or some similar thing. All of these would simply go onto a form 1099 and these would be added up, either directly or on a schedule C.

In Canada it used to be necessary to have the owner of a private company receive a draw during the year. Near the end of the year the accountant had to figure how much was a salary and how much was a dividend. The objective was to select the distribution of income types to minimize the total tax bill. Similar calculations are done in the US. Naturally they are more complex when a large number of corporations are involved.

There is an additional complicating factor in Trump’s case. Because he has interests in a couple hundred corporations, some of these are probably treated as separate businesses and some of them consolidate the accounts of some other corporations, which are officially owned by the mother corporations instead of the shareholder. It requires some pretty fancy calculations to figure out the best distribution.

In summary I expect that when his 2015 return is published it will not contain anything interesting because it will only show the funds that went from his companies to his personal account. This will be quite close to his cost of living.

If the Dems really wanted to know what was in his tax return they would instead look at the 104 pages that he filed a few months ago. One financial writer looked at this and found that Trump owned a large amount of shares in a particular company that did not fit in with his other investments. He looked at it, examined the company’s filings, and recommended that his readers all buy shares in it.

More About Gun Control

Today I watched a video, which is available at http://consciouslyenlightened.com/gang-members-implicate-u-s-govt-in-dumping-crates-of-guns-in-chicago/

In it a man states that the federal government has been distributing crates of unregistered guns in downtown Chicago since 1990 and possibly longer. The purpose seems to be to make it easier for residents to shoot each other. The narrator seems to believe that the actual purpose is to increase the crime rate to keep the police, court, and prison systems operating profitably. He states that there is not a single gun shop in the city, so the guns have to come from somewhere.

His stated reason does not make much sense, but then again there are so many stupid things happening that he may be right. I cannot think of a reason that makes more sense.

It may be to increase the number of shooting victims to make it easier for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to get larger budgets, which exactly matches his description.

The BATF were the chief operators of the Fast and Furious gunwalking program a few years ago. Congressional investigators kept running into either a claim of executive privilege from the White House or a statement that the FBI had provided the money for the purchases so further questions would not be answered. We will never know unless the Republicans win in November. In that episode hundreds of guns were given or sold to gangsters. Some of them were used in murders in North America and at least one was used in one of the terrorist attacks in Europe. One Mexican bandit said at the time that he could buy any gun he wanted from the US government.

The initial push for gun control came from the Communists who called themselves Progressives in the early years of the last century. They did not want to use the Communist name in North America, hence the change in name. The leaders of the Communist parties all wanted to confiscate all privately-owned guns to make it easier to strongarm anyone who did not want to participate in the takeover that the Communists saw in the future.

Other dictators followed suit. One recent cartoon showed a bunch of prisoners in and around a cattle car with Nazi soldiers around them. The caption said something to the effect that people who owned guns would not get into the cattle cars.

Many survivors of the Nazi regime have stated that people in the US should never give up their guns. Vladimir Putin, who obviously knows a lot about Communism, said the same thing recently.

Consider the following. Would impounding the cars belonging to teetotalers decrease the incidence of drunken or impaired driving? Obviously not. Look at it as a war between defensive and offensive forces. The criminals are all armed and are the offensive force. Nobody has made any effort to disarm them. They would probably resist very strongly since they are all armed. The gun control people would only take guns away from the defensive forces. This makes no sense at all.

The people who claim to be in favor of gun control want to take guns away from the citizens who buy them to protect themselves, their homes, and their families. They do not want to take them away from criminals.

Every mass shooting ends when someone shoots the shooter. In a situation like Orlando apparently nobody was armed except for the shooter. It took a long while for police to arrive. If this had not happened in a gun-free zone someone would have killed the shooter and saved the lives of dozens of people.

It is ironic that some of the people who claim to be in favor of gun control have security staff armed with guns, what else? Recently the governor of one state tried to restrict firearms and the legislature voted to restrict the firearms that his bodyguards had. Trump used the same line on Hillary recently.

A few days ago I saw a blurb that said that the president is protected by men with guns. So are all government buildings. So are politicians of many different organizations. While this is going on schools and their students are protected by signs that proclaim them to be gun-free zones. This is absurd!

A few years ago Australia confiscated all the privately-owned guns that they could find. As a result the number of crimes committed while using guns has gone up by a factor of 5. As stated above they disarmed the defensive forces, but not the offensive forces.

More About Civil Forfeiture

I wrote about this a couple of years ago. Since then the situation has gone from bad to worse. I recently discovered a study done in late 2015. It said that in 2014 civil forfeitures took more money from citizens than burglaries did.

These civil forfeiture laws were originally set up to allow police forces to seize assets that had been purchased with stolen money, and initially used against the Mafia. Now they are used to provide financing for police forces.

A report from a couple of years ago said that the police in some small town in Texas did shakedowns of people why were traveling through their vicinity. In the case of a family, they threatened to have the adults declared as unfit parents and seizing the children from them if they did not hand over their cash.

IMHO this leads to a breakdown of the system of law and order. The people who are supposed to be protecting citizens from thieves turn out to be worst thieves of all. Add the number of people who have been robbed in this manner to all those who were arrested for smoking pot and you have a large contingent of the population who do not trust the police. Until recently the police operated using information from the public. With a large fraction of the population not trusting the police the whole system breaks down.

This does not include the other bad effects of the random seizures of cash. People have lost money that they intended to use to buy cars or start businesses.

This is absolutely insane.
