News and Politics

With Federal budget deficits now completely out of control – the last time I checked it was about $22 TRILLION – there is simply no hope of paying it back.  Investors around the world understand this, but they have continued to purchase dollar-denominated securities. Why? Because the U.S. economy and its currency are still seen as safe havens, despite the budget deficit. The US, despite its recent insanity since Trump’s election, is still perceived as a stable culture rooted in freedom. Our Constitution and its system of “checks and balances” between the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial, is regarded as a rational and reasonable way (so far) to organize human activity.

In effect, the U.S. deficit is accepted globally as an aid in organizing the world economy. The US is allowed to carry huge deficits because our consumer market is still large enough to accept exports from everywhere in the world. Our balance-of-trade deficit has been necessary so that other countries can export here. We have been permitted to print fiat money to fund our debt so long as our economic activity remains strong, and financial markets are stable.

The world economy has become globalist, with much of the world’s supply chains originating in China.

All that has changed now with the coronavirus pandemic. Businesses and nations are realizing that to place manufacturing in one country can have devastating effects when that country is shut down. Rosemary Gibson, in her book China Rx, has stated that 85% of our pharmaceutical supplies come from China. We don’t make the active pharmaceutical ingredients that go into our antibiotics and other pharma products. Our industries have largely been handed over to the regime in Beijing. The US is now a service economy, with most of our workforce living paycheck to paycheck. That aint Trump’s fault though. If you want to blame someone, blame the Bushes and Obama – it has all happened during the past 15–20 years.

The U.S. Economy

Consider what was happening in the U.S. economy before the pandemic hit. We had pretty much full employment (3.5%) which traditionally should have produced a huge inflationary pressure as almost everyone was making money and spending it. Yet inflation was very low and interest rates were below 2%. The stock market was at an all-time high as people were investing; and this included foreign investment as well.

It is clear now that Trump and Powell, the Fed chairman, are applying Modern Monetary Theory to the economy. A $4T bomb by the Fed to support the capital markets, and another $2.3T relief bill. If the country is locked down for 60 days instead of 30, due to the pandemic, another relief bill will be needed.

MMT is an economic theory that says a government can use fiscal policy (spending and taxing) to achieve full employment, while at the same time creating new (fiat) money to fund government purchases. This is just what Powell, the Fed chairman, and Trump have done. In MMT, the public sector is the Treasury combined with the central bank. Essentially during this relief package and central bank assistance, the Fed has merged with the U.S. Treasury.

More important for progressives is the assertion that achieving full employment can be administered via a federally funded job guarantee. The idea is that when private sector jobs are plentiful, government spending on guaranteed jobs is lower, and vice versa. Moreover, MMT asserts that when the economy is below full employment, there is a "free lunch" to create (fiat) money to fund government expenditure to achieve full employment. In MMT unemployment is a burden; full employment is not. Creating money alone does not cause inflation; only spending it when the economy is at or above full employment can. So the goal of MMT is full employment. That’s why Trump was crowing about low unemployment rates before corona hit. This administration, along with the Fed, is applying the MMT concept.  

MMT is a more worker-friendly economic philosophy. I never expected this during a Republican administration, frankly. Even a few hedge fund managers have proposed a ZERO tax rate for everyone making $200,000 or less! (At least until the end of 2020). Not even Bernie was willing to do that.

MMT is an economic philosophy whose time has come, mainly because a $22 trillion government deficit can never be repaid. My prediction is that the coronavirus will result in a complete reorganization of the world’s financial system and economy, to better suit a population that is rising in consciousness. After this is over, look for more cooperation and less irrational hating and competing in world markets.

In this blog we’ve been talking about identifying and shutting down the worldwide arms, drugs, and human trafficking networks. Well, during this time of shelter-in-place and social isolation, places where people congregate have been shut down. That includes sporting events, conventions, massage parlors, Las Vegas, gambling casinos, bars, concerts, etc.: places where human trafficking could occur. Most noteworthy is the shutdown of the southern border, where coyotes smuggle sex slaves across the border (as well as drugs and guns). This could be exaggerated, but I read somewhere that almost every girl/woman who crosses the border is raped or sexually assaulted.

It is clear that those who come to the US for a better life are being abused. There is no question of that.

All of that has been shut down now.

If you take a look at Trump’s Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017, titled “Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption,” you can see that the battle against these networks has been ongoing for several years.

Here is what Snopes.com says about it:

On 20 December 2017, President Donald Trump signed Executive Order 13818, “Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption.”

That executive order declared “a national emergency with respect to serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world” and provided “for the imposition of sanctions on actors engaged in these malign activities.” The order also authorized the U.S. Treasury to freeze the assets of persons “who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption”:

“Today, the United States is taking a strong stand against human rights abuse and corruption globally by shutting these bad actors out of the U.S. financial system. Treasury is freezing their assets and publicly denouncing the egregious acts they’ve committed, sending a message that there is a steep price to pay for their misdeeds," said Secretary of the Treasury Steven T. Mnuchin. "At the direction of President Trump, Treasury and our interagency partners will continue to take decisive and impactful actions to hold accountable those who abuse human rights, perpetrate corruption, and undermine American ideals."

Specifically, it mandated that "all property and interests in property that are in the United States" belonging to persons identified in the order "are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in." The order listed thirteen individuals (all of them foreign nationals) and also allowed for the U.S. Treasury to freeze the assets of "any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury … to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse" as well as the assets of "current or former government official[s]" who have engaged in corruption.”

Did Trump Sign an Executive Order to Seize the Assets of Clinton and Obama?

While reporters nitpick Trump’s statements about corona,  behind the scenes a huge battle is being waged between white hats and dark hats. When the pandemic runs its course and people begin to research what happened, we’re going to find out some interesting and horrible stuff.

Things are not always what they seem. Use discernment!

The world is going through a necessary transition from an old, broken system ruled by darkness and corruption, into a new one. We are in a transition phase where the unworkable aspects of the old system are being exposed. A new consciousness is arising!

It’s a painful transition, but big changes for the better requires some pain now. The coronavirus is just one way this could have happened. This pandemic is opening up (or should I say prying open) a metaphoric “lid” on the darkness that has ruled this planet for millennia. This darkness is represented physically by the worldwide arms, drugs, and human/child trafficking networks.  

Behind the coronavirus, I’m certain, are some deep dark secrets. Over the next year or so we’re going to find out who is behind the release of this virus and what their motivations were. The dark networks on this planet are going to be identified and shut down. A wildcard event of this magnitude – the most significant event in human history, affecting 7.5 billion people, and involving the entire world economy and every person on the planet – is what I call a historical force. It is unstoppable. The light shining on the planet, generated by a population sick and tired of the old, broken system, is forcing people to look inside. It is exposing the personal darkness within all of us so it can be cleaned out. It is exposing the fault lines and flaws within the top-heavy economy and the corrupt political system. It is releasing the light within. It is preparing us for a new world without war.

The capital markets are spiraling down as sociopaths (again) short-sell the market and try to transfer the assets of the middle classes worldwide into their hands. This will work for a while, but only for a while. Until the people of the world, who can communicate instantly across the planet, wake up and see how the global elites have arranged human societies for their benefit.

Should we be mad at these people, when they are identified?

Absolutely not. Because we, the people, have allowed them to ascend to their positions of power. Human populations have been on their collective backs so long that acquiescence has become a habit. When the Patriot Act was passed in 2001, for example, not one of our legislators even read it. (This is the law that formally created the surveillance state, exposed by Edward Snowden.) What did we the people do? Nothing. Oh, a few of us exposed what was in it and ranted about it for a while. But we the people were happy to get on with our lives, and mostly ignored the legalization of what some call the Deep State. Well, that’s all over now. Life is going to change, is changing, and we’re never going back.

We can’t go back because once you reach a higher level of consciousness, your new self-awareness is permanent. And that’s a good thing.

I see a fantastic future ahead for the planet and for humanity. As I’ve said in previous blog posts, when you clean out the junk in the closet you make a mess. You get filthy, dust flies everywhere, you start coughing, you get pissed off, and halfway through you’re about ready to give up because the job looks hopelessly hard. But if you persist you make it through. And even better, when others see you struggling they come to help. That’s the wonderful and indomitable characteristic of human nature: we want to help each other. And we do! Something as simple as a phone call to someone who is lonely is an act of kindness and generosity. Little acts of kindness go a long way, and create a higher resonance in your neighborhood and in your city.

Make no mistake, coronavirus is the opening act in a huge transformation of human consciousness on the planet.

Interesting Facts

Here are some interesting facts about the H1N1 virus, which went through the U.S. population in 2009:

1) According to the CDC final estimate of 2009 U.S. H1N1 cases (published in 2011): from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010 approximately 60.8 million U.S. cases were identified, there were 274,304 U.S. hospitalizations, and 12,469 U.S. deaths occurred due to H1N1.

2) According to the Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases, by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, there are, as of Monday March 23 at noon, 35,345 confirmed cases in the US. However, the rate of infection is increasing as the number of tests increases. As of Saturday March 21 at 10p.m. there were 336 deaths and 176 recovered in the US.

 We all remember H1N1. Society ran as normal, people got sick and died. If you recall, President Obama even went golfing during the crisis as the cases began to rise. Hardly anyone noticed or cared, certainly not the press. The “herd immunity” strategy was employed and people were satisfied; there was no panic. However, the rate of infection of this virus is two to three time higher than the flu, which last year killed 22,000 people. According to the CDC the virus is ramping up, so we don’t know how many will eventually become affected. The response this time is much different!

Some people say that the treatment is more deadly than the cure, but the authorities have decided to take drastic action. Now we have to make the best of it!

Congress and the Relief Plan

As I write this (23 March), Democrats in the Senate have stalled the $2 trillion relief plan. Some Republican fiscal conservatives are refusing to go along as well. The markets are responding by crashing again. The market is saying to the politicians, “Stop your adolescent bickering and get on with it.” The markets will continue to fall until bold action is taken, it’s as simple as that. After that sanity can return. If the pols can’t agree on a relief plan then the NYSE has to be shut down before blue- and white-collar workers lose most of their savings.

People will notice who is playing politics and who is sincere. Both parties are corrupt. It is time for a political reset as well as the economic reset that is coming from the global pandemic and the global economic meltdown. Those politicians who are too stupid to understand the need to keep people from experiencing another Depression will be exposed. At this time no sane person cares about their anti-Trump hatred or their pro-Trump obstinacy, nor do we care about how far the deficit rises. If the Fed has to put another $5 trillion on its balance sheet, that’s the breaks. In a crisis you deal with the crisis NOW and clean up the mess later. You help people, not bicker.

A Short Meditation

The power of meditation has been proven. It is sometimes called the “Maharishi Effect,” where only 1% of the population needs to advance to take everyone along to a higher state. In chemistry, when only 1% of the molecules align, the entire solution aligns. So doing a meditation can be highly effective because it only takes a few to create large, positive effects, especially now that the old paradigm is truly breaking down.

Now it’s necessary to put a new paradigm in its place. Let’s make that new paradigm a fantastic one, where a new consciousness takes hold and replaces the old “human nature.”

Visualizing or meditating can have enormous effects, especially when done with others. The power of human thought and intent to change conditions for the better is enormous. We’re seeing the result of the closets being cleaned out all over the world now. Let’s persist, stay centered, help others when we can, and envision a bright future. Because you know what? It’s inevitable. The darkness doesn’t stand a chance!

Here’s a short meditation. If you like, revise it to fit your personal preferences.

Sit in a quiet place. Take a deep breath through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. Let your conscious mind become aware of your breathing, as you begin to breathe in and out normally. Now become aware of your conscious mind as it follows your breathing, in and out. As you breathe in, see the light and feel the love of the Creative Source flowing into you. As you breathe out, let the tension and worry dissipate into the ethers, where it will be transformed into light.

When you are ready, imagine your house and your neighborhood filled with happy people who are prosperous and who have a new spirit of cooperation. There is a feeling that we have made it through the darkness, and that all is well and back to normal. Then do this for your city, your state, your country, and finally the entire planet.

Quote of the Day

When I was five years old my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be in life. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.”

As the markets implode and the world economy shuts down, I have only one observation: This is the greatest transfer of wealth from the world's working and middle classes to the globalist elites in world history.

Panic selling (and short selling -- betting that the market will go down) by institutional investors and hedge funds are contributing to the market crash all over the world. These are the same globalist elites who sent 10 million U.S. factory jobs to China to take advantage of what is essentially slave labor, in order to boost their balance sheets. Now they are panicking and selling off the market. Every market, all over the world. This is no longer just a market correction because the stock market was overbought. This looks to me like a deliberate selloff to crush everyone who invested in the markets.

If it is I want to know who's behind this. I'm starting to get really mad as my life savings evaporate into thin air. Lots of people are selling, but who's buying? That's what I want to know.

Trading must be shut down. Now. It's irresponsible to keep the markets open and watch as the savings of the world's workers (blue and white collar) go down the tubes. If this keeps up we're going to see the death of market economies all over the world. The so-called "leaders" of the Western democracies must stop this market selling insanity, and do it NOW. Close the NYSE until this corona crisis is over. To not do so is to play into the hands of the sociopaths who are wrecking Western economies and democratic societies.

Let me preface my remarks by saying that I don't have "sources." I don't have special information, or talk with experts. I read and listen to publicly available info and use my intuition.

The corona virus is, as I said in the last post, creating a "timeout" for humanity. The virus is another wild card -- a completely unexpected event that affects large numbers of people. The virus is man-made, I believe, not a natural transmission from animal to human. It came from experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology -- the only level 4 biolab in China. Corona appeared in Wuhan city sometime in November of 2019. The Chinese Communist Party's response to the virus was/is the same as the Soviet government's response to Chernobyl in 1986: denial, coverup, and forced suppression of information, until the incident could no longer be contained. During the Chernobyl incident, a flaw in the design of Soviet reactors (known to the government) led to a containment breach. The reactor went "hot" and spewed radiation all over the place.

Denial, coverup, and suppression are the responses of a totalitarian government. I don't believe it's accidental that five years after Chernobyl, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed.

The four most affected countries so far are China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy. Iran and China are totalitarian states and the numbers coming from these countries aren't to be trusted, for the above reasons. The number of cases, and the number of deaths, are likely under reported. The other two, Italy and South Korea, have extensive ties to the CCP. The Falun Gong website, Epoch Times, has this to say. The Epoch Times is known for its contacts on the ground within the Chinese government, and often publishes articles based on government documents smuggled out of China.

Outside China, the spread of COVID-19 has been most severe in Italy, Iran, South Korea, and Japan. Not all of these countries are located near China, but all have extensive interests in the PRC.

Italy, the most heavily affected country outside China as of March 10, was the first (and only) G-7 nation to sign onto the PRC’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI, also known as One Belt, One Road). In an attempt to prop up its weakening economy, Italy has also sought to capture the Chinese market for selling its luxury goods.

With the outbreak now forcing Rome to put the country under lockdown, such prospects have been put on hold.

Italy also has signed scores of sister-city agreements with China, with the cities of Milan, Venice, and Bergamo included among them. These are the areas hardest-hit by the virus.

In the Middle East, Iran has seen a surge in the number of infections, particularly among government officials.

The Iranian regime has had a comprehensive strategic partnership with China since 2016, and its ties with Beijing began years before that. In violation of international sanctions, Iran has imported embargoed materials from China, while continuing to sell oil to the PRC. The Islamic Republic allowed flights in and out of four major Chinese cities until the end of February.

On-the-ground footage taken by Iranian citizens is reminiscent of the tragedy playing out in Wuhan, with overworked medical staff, despondent patients, and body bags lining hospital floors.

And while official figures released by the Iranian authorities show deaths and confirmed cases trailing behind Italy’s numbers, it is likely that the real scale of the outbreak remains grossly underreported. Reviewing available data, an epidemiologist cited by The Washington Post on March 5 estimated that the actual number of people infected in Iran could have been up to 28,000, nearly five times what the regime had reported.

In South Korea, the public has grown increasingly critical of President Moon Jae-in for refusing to ban Chinese tourists at large and instead only barring entry for those who recently traveled to Hubei Province, the epicenter of the epidemic in China.

More than 1.4 million people have signed a petition to the Presidential Blue House calling for Moon to be impeached. The petition text reads, “Seeing Moon Jae-in’s response to the new epidemic, we feel that he is more of a President for China than Korea.”

In Iran, the senior leadership of the country has been infected. Mohammad Mirmohammadi, a top adviser to Iran's supreme leader, died of coronavirus at the beginning of March. Other top officials have contracted the disease, including members of the Iranian Parliament. 70,000 prisoners were released into the population, an acknowledgement that the rulers of Iran haven't a clue how to contain the virus.

There is debate that the coronavirus spread naturally, from bats sold in a wet market in Wuhan. I don't think so. This virus was man-made. Here's an article in Nature from 2015 that has been going around the internet. It shows how such a novel SARS virus could be created in a lab. It is titled, "A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence."

https://www.nature.com/articles/nm.3985

Does this prove that a virus was created in a lab and somehow released in Wuhan? Nope. But it's likely. This was indirectly confirmed by Zhao Lijian, a rising star in the CCP, who blames the U.S. Army for releasing a lab-created virus in Wuhan!

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/coronavirus-chinese-official-suggests-u-s-army-blame-outbreak-n1157826

They used the Nature paper cited above as proof of this claim. Sure. A level 4 biolab exists in the Wuhan City area, but the virus comes from the US.

The Express, a UK paper, published a story on March 7th that contradicts Zhao Lijian and the CCP. It's title is, "Coronavirus: Experiment gone wrong? Two Wuhan lab leaks exposed by Chinese scientists." The subheading is,
"CORONAVIRUS may have originated from two labs conducting research on bats just metres away from the epicentre, one of which has experienced two previous cases of SARS outbreaks, a study has found."

The article states that two Chinese scientists, Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao, published a new paper from the Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology that casts doubt on the government’s theory.

The paper identified the second possible origin, before making a strong conclusion.

It finalised: “The second laboratory was 12 kilometres from the seafood market and belonged to Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

“This laboratory reported that the Chinese horseshoe bats were natural reservoirs for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) which caused the 2002-3 pandemic.

“The principal investigator participated in a project which generated a chimeric virus using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system and reported the potential for human emergence.

“A direct speculation was that SARS-CoV or its derivative might leak from the laboratory.

“In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus, the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/1251719/coronavirus-china-bioweapon-experiment-lab-leak-wuhan-seafood-market-spt

Not even the CCP is bothering anymore to support the propaganda that corona came accidentally from a wet market in Wuhan. The theme now is, "Who released the virus?" This is how suppressive regimes and cliques work. Try one lie. If that doesn't work, cover it with another lie. When that doesn't work, invent more lies. When your story collapses, accuse your critics of being "xenophobes" and "racists." You resort to name calling when you got nothing left.

According to one report I heard, many Chinese now blame the CIA for the virus, and exonerate the Party. Go figure. I am second to none in my contempt for the CIA, a nasty outfit that has sponsored regime change wars and political assassinations of foreign leaders for decades. But let's apply Occam's Razor here. The simplest explanation is the most likely. Like the dark army Soviets in Chernobyl, the CCP is trying to blame others for their mistakes.

Here's a prediction for you, based on nothing but my intuition: The CCP will, like the Soviet Union, collapse. The date? Sometime in 2023. The October Revolution in Russia took place in October 1917, after the Russian people overthrew an oppressive czar. Boris Yeltsin outlawed communism in Russia in 1991. That's 74 years. Numerologically, 74 reduces to 7 + 4 = 11. 11 is the number for Illumination or Enlightenment. The theme of the number 11 is that darkness is superseded by the light. Mao Tse-tung and his gang of thugs came to power in China in 1949. 74 years from 1949 is 2023. Illumination and freedom will eventually come to the great Chinese people. Just as we in the US are fighting a battle of dark vs light, corruption vs. illumination, so too will many other countries, including Iran. Because the Iranian government is so closely tied to the CCP, the great Persian peoples will eventually also have freedom from their oppressive government. Here in the US our own democratic system of government is collapsing under the weight of corporate corruption and influence peddling. We too will have our enlightenment as the military-industrial complex is exposed to the light of day, and our own human and drugs trafficking networks are uncovered.

The coronavirus is the beginning of a worldwide disclosure. Over the coming weeks, months, and years, the darkness on the planet is going to be exposed. This darkness is intimately connected to the worldwide arms, drugs, and human trafficking networks. The persons behind these dark networks are eventually going to be revealed by courageous whistleblowers. Satanic Ritual Abuse and human trafficking are far more prevalent than we think. Jeffrey Epstein is just the tip of the iceberg.

Coronavirus is making the peoples of the world understand how intimately connected we all are. It is the opening act on a planet that is just beginning to wake up.

What happens when little Susie and little Johnny are screaming at each other? You take them to their rooms for a timeout so that they can cool off and calm down. That’s what the corona virus is doing here in the US. The level of hatred and contention was simply unsustainable. Now we’re in a national timeout. Social separation and self-isolation are the watchwords today. Political rallies, and even debates, are being suspended during the run-up to a national election. People are being told to work remotely. Entire professional and college sports seasons are being canceled. It’s unprecedented, but needed. As a nation, we need a big timeout to calm down and cool off.

What will happen next?

The coronavirus will run its course within the next several weeks and social activity will slowly resume. The markets will recover. During the break, however, I hope that people will look inside and find greater peace. We have to work together, not fight each other.

Gotta love CNN, the mouthpiece of the intel community and the corporate establishment. After Super Tuesday II, with primaries in Michigan, Idaho, North Dakota, Washington, Missouri, and Mississippi, Biden has 787 delegates. Bernie has 647. 1,991 are needed to win.

Headlines on CNN as I write this at 8 a.m. Wednesday March 11:

“Biden Takes Command of Delegate Race”

“Cleveland (CNN)

“Joe Biden is marching to the Democratic presidential nomination.

“The former vice president handily defeated Bernie Sanders on Tuesday in Michigan's primary -- halting the Vermont senator's hopes of a comeback in the state where he'd stunned Hillary Clinton four years ago.

Biden also notched massive wins in Idaho, Mississippi and Missouri. Sanders won in North Dakota. Washington hadn't been called yet, but as of Wednesday morning, Biden was in a tight race there with Sanders, another state Sanders needed to win.

Tuesday marked a clear turning point in the Democratic race. Biden is building a powerful coalition of African Americans, suburbanites and rural white voters who previously backed Sanders, while Sanders is failing to produce the electorate-changing turnout of young voters that he's promised.” [emphasis mine]

“Biden’s massive wins on Super Tuesday II, capped a reversal of fortune.”

Well, at least the latter part of that headline is correct.

I have no love for Bernie; he’s a flake who (by his own admission) doesn’t know how he’s going to pay for his big government programs. Estimates are that Medicare-for-all will cost around 9 trillion or so. Even if the richest 3.4% – those who make over $250,000 per year – have ALL of their income taken for taxes, this will only generate about $3.4 trillion. But come on, Bernie is only 147 delegates behind! Biden needs 1,113 and Bernie needs 1,253. There’s a long way to go.

But if you read these headlines and stories you’d think the race is over already! This is the definition of Fake News. When the DOW fell over 2,000 points last week CNN published huge headlines and several lead stories. The very next day the market rose back 1200 points. Strangely, CNN had no story about that. Not even a small headline at the bottom of the page. Today, March 11, the DOW fell another 1400 points. Front page headlines in huge type on CNN. If the market gains tomorrow, will there even be a story? You’d almost think that CNN wants the economy to fail. Nah, that’s just a conspiracy theory. Sure, CNN has hired several commentators from the intel community (including former CIA Director John Brennan) but you’d have to be a nutcase to assert that the intel community writes CNN’s headlines and their stories.

If I’m Bernie I’m hanging in there. Hell, even Trump is sympathetic. He keeps tweeting that the Dems are stealing the nomination from Bernie.

Of course there are the 700 Superdelegates, who can vote for anyone they want, so maybe the race really is over. Most political commentators say that the remaining states don’t favor Bernie. And there’s those pesky Superdelegates. But CNN never mentions Superdelegates in the article. According to CNN, on March 11th, Biden has won and Bernie has lost. Go figure.

Bernie should stay in until the end. He has a populist base that doesn’t want to give up, even if they don’t always go to the polls.

Conspiracy Theory

Here’s one for you. The coronavirus spreads here in the US. Biden and Sanders have already cancelled campaign rallies in Ohio on March 11. The Task Force led by VP Pence, and the CDC, recommends cancelling all public gatherings over 1,000 people. This shuts down Trump’s major source of momentum and publicity for his base – the rallies he’s been holding since he was elected. Bloomberg has already bought the Democratic party with his billions. He’s got, according to Forbes, something like $55 billion. He’s not running so he can contribute as much as he wants to state parties. This dwarfs the Trump campaign’s measly $200 million. Bloomberg has already spent $600 mil on adverts to get 24 delegates. All he has to do is swamp the country with anti-Trump ads day and night. Trump has no answer for this because he can’t rally his base. The mainstream media will collaborate against Trump’s reelection.

It’s a perfect anti-Trump storm.

Media Spreads Panic

Today the markets are crashing again and the WHO has announced that the coronavirus is officially a pandemic. Mass media are spreading fear all over the world. As I said in a previous post, the same corporate capitalists who moved millions of factory jobs from the US to Asia, seeking cheap CCP slave labor, are the same guys who are panic selling and crashing the markets because their supply chains are broken.

Something very strange has happened in central China. The virus originated in Wuhan. Just before that another outbreak caused the CCP to order the slaughter of half of the country’s pig population.

Even as my savings evaporate I am keeping calm, however. Eventually we’ll find out what the coronavirus is and how it was originally released into the population of Wuhan. Until then I am avoiding large public gatherings and meditating for peace and prosperity. It can’t hurt.

The objectives of the corporate establishment Democrats couldn’t be more obvious at this point. Endorsing the senile Joe Biden is just a ploy to ensure a brokered convention and the selection of someone other than Biden and Sanders. Michelle Obama has already said she doesn’t want to run and is tired of being in the White House after eight years. Who does that leave? Hillary, of course. Her running mate? Warren, Klobuchar, or maybe even Bernie to get the populist vote. Or perhaps Michelle could be persuaded to accept the Vice-Presidency. The idea that Joe Biden will be the eventual Democratic nominee is absurd. The poor guy can hardly string three coherent sentences together. He’s just a temporary delegate collection node to stop Bernie.

The establishment Democrats are weary of Hillary Clinton. The party is desperately looking for a viable candidate to oppose Trump. But the Democrats don’t have anyone who can face off with the junkyard dog. Trump will make mincemeat of Bernie, who is essentially a nice guy. Hillary already failed in 2016, but she’s the only Democrat who can stand up to him. After the first ballot at the Democratic convention, the superdelegates will kick in. These are persons who will vote the establishment/corporate candidate. Bernie won’t have 1991 delegates by July, which is the number necessary to ensure the nomination.

What are the alternatives to Hillary? Rahm Emmanuel? A tough guy for sure, but an unpopular mayor of Chicago. Barack Obama would be the ideal candidate to run against Trump but he can’t serve a third term.

Watch for a wild card at the Democratic convention. It’s either that, or Hillary will be the Democratic presidential nominee.

Watch this vid about SpaceX’s launch of thousands of telecommunications satellites that will surround the globe in near-earth orbit. No, it’s not SkyNet, but fascinating nevertheless. This is a vid by a private engineering company, but it’s worth watching. According to The Drive website,

SpaceX's potentially game-changing Starlink concept involves launching large volumes of satellites – dozens at a time – that circle the earth providing broadband data-connectivity.”

One can speculate whether this project is a part of Trump’s newly-created Space Force. Starlink might be an alternative to the 5G technology being pushed by Huawei, ZTE, and the CCP, and the cellular network companies here in the US, which some think may cause health problems for those exposed to the Ka band of signals above 26 Gigahertz.

We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment....

While 4G’s wavelengths travel along the surface of the skin, 5G’s millimeter waves are more insidious. When 5G wavelengths are emitted, our skin will automatically absorb them, which will naturally cause the skin to rise in temperature.”

From https://www.gaia.com/article/5g-health-risks-the-war-between-technology-and-human-beings:

Scare tactic? Maybe. But if 5G towers really will have harmful effects, perhaps a satellite 5G network like Starlink, with LNB’s (low-noise block downconverters) would be safer. In this system, satellite signals are received by dishes that then downconvert the high frequency signal into lower frequencies that are less harmful and that can be distributed to the consumer. This would be much safer than 5G microwave towers all over the place. According to user u/WikiTextBot, one of the users in a discussion board of Starlink,

A low-noise block downconverter (LNB) is the receiving device mounted on satellite dishes used for satellite TV reception, which collects the radio waves from the dish and converts them to a signal which is sent through a cable to the receiver inside the building....The LNB... serves as the RF front end of the satellite receiver, receiving the microwave signal from the satellite collected by the dish, amplifying it, and downconverting the block of frequencies to a lower block of intermediate frequencies (IF). This downconversion allows the signal to be carried to the indoor satellite TV receiver using relatively cheap coaxial cable; if the signal remained at its original microwave frequency it would require an expensive and impractical waveguide line.”

Next is a fascinating vid with commentary by a guy who calls himself “ET Database.” This footage is, apparently shot from a camera at the International Space Station. The commentator says it might be “an alien spaceship,” but I don’t buy that. New technology from the hidden programs in the military-industrial complex? Whatever it is, it’s amazing.

The text of the agreement is found at the State Department website, https://www.state.gov/agreement-for-bringing-peace-to-afghanistan/#.Xlpr9-JuAQw.twitter and is titled "Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan."

The text of the agreement can be found at https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Agreement-For-Bringing-Peace-to-Afghanistan-02.29.20.pdf

The relevant portions of the agreement are quoted below:

PART ONE

The United States is committed to withdraw from Afghanistan all military forces of the United States, its allies, and Coalition partners, including all non-diplomatic civilian personnel, private security contractors, trainers, advisors, and supporting services personnel within fourteen (14) months following announcement of this agreement, and will take the following measures in this regard:

II A. The United States, its allies, and the Coalition will take the following measures in the first one hundred thirty-five (135) days:

1) They will reduce the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan to eight thousand six hundred (8,600) and proportionally bring reduction in the number of its allies and Coalition forces.

2) The United States, its allies, and the Coalition will withdraw all their forces from five (5) military bases.

B. With the commitment and action on the obligations of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban in Part Two of this agreement, the United States, its allies, and the Coalition will execute the following:

1) The United States, its allies, and the Coalition will complete withdrawal of all remaining forces from Afghanistan within the remaining nine and a half (9.5) months.

2) The United States, its allies, and the Coalition will withdraw all their forces from remaining bases

Of course, this agreement doesn't guarantee that peace will come to Afghanistan and that all U.S. troops will be withdrawn. But it's a good start, just like the agreement between North Korea and the US in 2018 at the Singapore Summit, which significantly reduced tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

IMHO those who criticize this agreement are haters and warmongers. Recall that certain media outlets castigated the agreement with North Korea, calling it a sham and that the US had made an agreement with a leader (Kin Jong Un) with a poor human rights record. This criticism was silly because North Korea, as everyone knows, is a proxy state of China. When President Xi sneezes, Kim Jong Un has to cover his head. (It is interesting that since the summer of 2019, when China had its outbreak of "swine flu" that resulted in the destruction of half of the country's pig population, and soon after that the outbreak of coronavirus, no saber-rattling from North Korea has been heard. Perhaps Xi and the CCP have more urgent things to attend to.)

Trump is the most unlikely of peacemakers, most likely because he's a businessman and not a politician. He sees an opportunity to save money by getting our troops out of a country known for its internecine warfare between competing Afghan factions. It's about time! This war has gone on for over 18 years and the expenditure of over a trillion dollars.

I don't care whether Trump has his heart in the right place or not. Reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Afghanistan are important advancements for world peace.

It remains to be seen whether haters and warmongers will sabotage the Taliban agreement. But it's a good first step.
