Pre-emption and Unilateralism

globalgulag5

Foreign policy affects everyone, but few concern themselves with the details. The “Big Picture” is ignored for the fallacy of immediate gratification. Instant satisfaction defies enduring security. The trap that most citizens fall into, is that the subject is just too complex to bother with, what can one person do? The experts know best, they will protect us! If this mindset is realistic, why is the world such a political mess? But more to the point, why does the United States have so many antagonists, devoted to restraining a suspect superpower?

Media Moguls Cash in on another Election

onlinepoliticalads

No matter what you think about political campaigns, most would certainly agree that they are very expensive. The networks and cable broadcasters have reaped huge profits from the carnival cycle of campaigning entertainment. Civility is simply not good for business. Enlightened discourse is boring and the high moral plane is only good for losers. Much like watching the carnage from a war zone or street riots in the hood, the TV cameras focus on the most controversial confrontations and ignore calls of cooperation. Politics is just too good of a blood sport to allow a modifying influence to temper down the mudslinging.

Catholic Church based upon Roman vs Anglo Saxon Law

the-middle-ages-powerpoint-9-728

Whatever you think or believe about the Catholic Church, the latest dust up between the current Pontiff and Donald Trump may seem trite, but actually reveals a fundamental difference in the meaning of being a Christian. When Pope Francis Suggests Donald Trump Is ‘Not Christian’, such a troubling account reported in the New York Times, should alarm believers and non-believers alike. An integral part of this issue must acknowledge a startling distinction on the basei of law and how it relates to the concept of a Christian Church.

Economic Insanity and Political Reality

bilderberg1

Globalism is the embodiment of economic insanity.  There is nothing new in this scheme to supplant reality with Elysium.  Dating back before the common era the manipulations were entrenched.  From The Greatness and Decline of Rome, Guglielmo Ferrero, Vol. II, pg. 57:

“. . . But meanwhile, before the empire of Rome became coextensive with Alexander’s, the most immediate and decisive effect of the universal enthusiasm was to impel men to incur the most impossible obligations. Nearly every one was at once both creditor and debtor; men lent one another any little money they possessed, and borrowed again whenever they were in difficulties. Italian society had become an inextricable labyrinth of debit and credit, through the system of Syngraphae or letters of credit, which were negotiated in the same way as securities and bills of exchange today, because the scarcity of capital and the frequent oscillations in prices would have made it ruinous for them to be redeemed too frequently. Those who were in need of money attempted to sell to some financier the claims they had on other persons, and the financier would give cash payment, of course with a proportionate discount according to the prospects of the debt, the needs of the creditor and the condition of the money market. . . “

U.S. Banks Ready for Negative Interest Rates?

Negative interest rates

The test run proved that negative interest rates can push savers into minus territory. Public outrage, while registered is not heard by the central bankers. The reasoning that commercial banks will start making loans because of the cost of sitting on deposits is pure fantasy thinking. As the article, Low Interest Rates Impoverish Savers shows,

Mainstream Media Establishment Gatekeepers at the Presidential Debates

MAINSTREAM-MEDIA

What can be said about a culture that continues to watch, much less listen to the drivel that masquerades as professional journalism? Anyone who is exposed to the continuous assault on common sense and intellectual integrity must resent the insults to the intelligence of the average voter. An electorate tunes into this charade of managed and filtered questions out of habit and certainly not from a motivation of discovering solutions. The bottom line is that the entire process of Presidential election coverage is designed to keep people in the dark.

Fly the Friendly Skies on Cheap Fuel

Jet fuel is by far every airline's biggest expense, and the cost of it fell by 50% in 2014 alone. Ticket prices have not declined accordingly. In fact, airfare edged up 2.3% through November, 2014, according to industry trade group Airlines for America.

Flying in those friendly skies has never been better for the corporate airlines. As for the cattle that is herded into the pens, the exhilaration and excitement has long faded into storm clouds. No doubt that in a competitive economy, enterprises must make a profit to survive, much less prosper. The airline industry does not have the same romance of a Yankee Clipper flight to China, but the amenities of sacking out in style certainly improves the hardship of travel. So what about the economics of the air passenger sector? A CNN reports says it all Airlines saved $11 billion on fuel. You saved 8 bucks.

Primaries and Caucuses Take a Backseat to Party Insiders

electionlobby

Now that the Iowa Caucus is in the record books, contrary to Trump’s demand for a redo, the respected party brokers are eager to weed out the hanger-on’s. Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Rand Paul and Martin O’Malley are gone. The GOP Party, started in 1854, is circling the wagons behind their establishment pick, Marco Rubio and the Democratic National Committee, founded in 1848, will do everything necessary to see that Hillary Clinton gets her chance to steal their selection. All of this chicanery is being practiced by two private political power hungry organizations. Proprietary rules and internal arbitration is the hallmark of party control and discipline, which ensures that the final outcome goes as the money interests deem.

NOVO ORDO SECLORUM – NeoCon Hell on Earth

newworldorder560

The 20th Century was the most destructive era in history. Deaths from all the wars and the genocides estimated at 160 million may seem small if the planet descends into the approaching holocaust. Globalization is the catchword of the ruling class. Sovereign nations are obsolete to the corporatists. Militarization for suppressing conflicts is the mission, since warfare among nations are passé. The old alliances based upon ethnic composition or ideology has vanished. Only dissenters against the New World Order pose a threat to the Novo Ordo Seclorum.
