Nobody Flashes Two Interesting Views on War in Syria

Nobody Flashes

With war with Russia heating up this week, these two videos’ caught my eye.

Tucker gives the common sense approach, one I thought was right on the mark.

And THEN I saw this one: The argument that when the economy is on the brink: politicians go to war, and as many of us know…the economy is not all what they post it out to be.

Both worth watching. Both men…make good points.

Jefferson and Madison: Feared the Elites

Nobody Cares

I heard some idiot today, on FOX, say that we’d never catch up to China as an economic power because you see…well… we have a SERVICE economy, and they have a manufacturing economy.

He acted as if…our ‘service’ economy was so much more…advanced.

Excuse me?

What really pissed me off about this was the truth of it. Our politicians, have gotten together with our biggest corporations to pull this off: They downsized America, (oh, we’ll get cheaper manufacturing in China) while they upsized a handful of elite billionaires and their political puppets in Congress.

President Trump is right: Our manufacturing base was demolished, and our workers forced into lower wage ‘service’ jobs. But it’s not just because of our “stupid” politicians giving away the farm in trade deals.

Oh no.

Those politicians were doing exactly what their big corporate donors wanted them to.

Damn America. They wanted into China’s market and they sacrificed their own citizens for their sweet returns on their stock.

Let the downsized Americans buy at Wal-Mart and get some stock themselves.

So, let’s go back to the 1786 elections, when Jefferson was out to get Hamilton. Yes, the founders had all come out to fight it out again in the election after Washington’s term was up: Hamilton was going in with the bankers, and Jefferson was appalled.

A few REALLY rich people, now own more wealth than the entire rest of the planet. And long ago, our founders saw this coming…Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were out to stop: Hamilton. 

Jefferson was so upset seeing what he thought was the rich taking over, he got Madison to write-up some papers to explain their feelings:

From the book Adams VS Jefferson, by John Ferling

Madison, who found it nearly impossible to resist his friends’ blandishment, consented, and churned out at least nineteen sulfurous pieces for Freneau’s paper in 1791-1792. His essays divulged the seismic shift that had occurred in his thinking over the past two years. He portrayed Hamilton’s adherents…mostly “men of influence, particularly the moneyed” class, he said, as a “self-serving, anti-republican elite that thought the people incapable of self-government. Assuming that the citizenry “should think of nothing but obedience, leaving the care of their liberties to their wiser rulers.” These elites believed that the people need know only one world. “Submission.” They exercise power “less to the interest of the many than of the few, and less to the reason of the many than to their weaknesses. Their ultimate objective, he insisted, was that the “government itself may by degrees be narrowed into fewer hands and approximated to a hereditary form.” Indeed, Madison exclaimed that is foes had taken large strides toward making two thirds of the new national government …. the Senate and presidency, …into “hereditary orders.” To fight this threat, Madison announced the need to create a political ‘party’. He was the first in the growing opposition to Hamilton’s schemes to use the word party, and he allowed that it might properly be called the “Republican party.”

So, it was Madison who coined the first “Republican” party, which grew into the Democratic Party that we witness today, representing ALL the same elitist things that Madison and Jefferson did NOT want to happen. Jackson may have been given historical credit for founding the party, but it was Madison who first put it on paper.

It’s also why, this weekend, the play “Hamilton” adored by all democrats everywhere, with an all-black cast, cost over $600 a ticket to get into here in St. Louis.

And you can be sure, that only rich “elite” white democrats will be able to afford that ticket.

James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, would be sick if about this, if they were alive, and saw, that what they feared the most, has happened.

And this Nobody Says: Now you know why they don’t teach American history in our schools anymore.

Some things, never change. ALWAYS: Follow the money.

AND……… the U.N., E.U., Deep state, Clintons, Bushes, Obamas, most of Congress, Amazon, FACEBOOK, NSA, FBI, Koch Brothers, Wal-Mart, Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, Paul Ryan, John McCain, NAFTA…(Feel free to add your own.) etc, etc….

How BLM Ruined My Christmas

Nobody Wonders

Okay. Christmas is coming, and one of my favorite things for my husband and I to do at Christmas, was to go to different malls and enjoy the Christmas decorations…and just dream. It was cheap entertainment…even though we were always on a budget and couldn’t afford much of what we saw in the store windows, we enjoyed watching the people walk with their kids, young teenage girls in groups, older couples holding hands, and noticing that everyone was on a special mission to buy that special present for someone. It put us in a ‘safe’ space that Christmas was good…. traditions of red and green and tinsel, left us always in a good mood.

Besides…going to the mall always gave me a reason to make faces at babies. (One of my favorite things to do.)

I don’t remember when the malls started closing down, but every Christmas our pickings got less and less.

We had at least six giant malls we could attend years ago. We are down now to one. It’s in the richest part of town…and that ONE…really doesn’t put up much. There is a huge Christmas tree, but that’s all. Very…sublime. The rich do NOT like to shout Christmas. Don’t ask me why. Snobs? Citizens of the global/Muslim/Buddha funky world? Well, you tell me.

The traffic in the malls got thinner with every year after Obama was elected. BLM came storming and threatening violence in all the stores, and one time, when I was in a Famous Barr Store, I couldn’t even find somebody to help me. Then I realized they just stopped hiring people.

I asked a sales lady in a Macy’s once, where all the people were, and she said, that every night, four huge black men, would walk into the perfume section, grab big boxes of perfume, and just walk out.

“Can’t the security guards arrest them?” I asked.

“No, They tried once, but they always got away. Now, we just stand aside and let them take whatever they want. And they do it every single night.”

I must admit, I was shocked at that time to hear it.

All through Obama’s administration, we watched as black mobs ran into stores, and just stole whatever they could. Whenever there were riots, we watched the looting on TV.

Obama. Said. Nothing. His message: Black people are oppressed by white people. Stealing is part of their right.

Many places just stopped reporting all the thieving that went on during the Obama years, but blacks were giving free license to steal.

And boy did they.

Not just blacks, mind you, but most of the time, yes. It’s St. Louis.

So, it came as no surprise to me when three black basketball players got caught stealing in China.

The three players – Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill – admitted to stealing items from three stores during a team trip to China. Before they thanked Trump on Wednesday for intervening with Xi, Trump had wondered whether they would express gratitude to him.

Now, ANYBODY with half a brain would know that if President Trump had NOT gotten those boys out, their lives in 10 years, would be over. China doesn’t give you cable TV, sex visits, three meals a day, and beautiful work out centers.

How stupid were these men? And men they were. I don’t CARE if they were under 20. They had money.

They did NOT need to steal. So, it’s not hard to imagine that they had done it plenty of times before, in America, and hey! No problemo.

Stupid.

President Trump, to his credit, demanded a ‘Thank you.” Who knows what bargaining chip he had to give up for them?

Then one of the boy’s father stepped in, and basically said President Trump didn’t deserve some thanks because he didn’t give them a ride home on-Air Force One. They were lucky they didn’t get a slow boat back to Kenya, if it would have been me.

If that sounds racist, it’s not. They are spoiled brats.

The father was in complete ignorance…about China, about manners, about just how LUCKY his son was that Trump got them out of China.

Was he just a racist Trump hater? An Obama Boy?

I bet Dad had to pay for the plane ticket.

Then President Trump tweeted:

“Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!” the president tweeted.

Every American with any sense thought the same. BUT…the pundits went nuts.

You are dealing with a stupid men…and women.

Neil Cavuto is NOT a stupid man. Yes, he weighed in on it.

A few days ago, I heard Neil Cavuto berate the President for NOT being “Presidential” He should have not answered the father. It was his EGO that got to him.

Really Neil?

Nobody Wonders, how Cavuto, who claims to be an expert on the economy, can even dare say that about the President. Trump said what NEEDED to be said to that asinine father who clearly could have cared less if his son stole. President Trump believes in black and white, and respect.

What do you believe in Neil?

To show such disrespect to the office was clear…as far as he was concerned his son deserved the royal treatment because…he was black.

Obviously, Neil only looks at the stock markets, and has no clue how 8 years of a race-baiting President devastated the economy all across our country.

Nobody also Wonders, if the companies now want to close down all the malls and just have people buy online because why keep stores open and paying salaries, when there is so much thief?

Nobody Wonders if the BLM didn’t help transform the very economic landscape all across America.

They certainly played a big part, and still do.

I miss the malls at Christmas.

You can still see displays, but, who wants to fork over $25 for a ten-minute car ride?

Yes, Obama ruined Christmas, Muslim that he is. He no doubt enjoyed it.

But then again, at least we have Mr. Merry Christmas in the White House, and China may have released those three guys, but they get us back in boatloads of cheap XMAS lights that always blow out,

On Christmas Eve.

Of course, they do.

Bah Humbug. Mr. Cavuto.

Have a Merry Christmas.

CEO’s : No Tax Reform…Help Texas You Greedy People!

Nobody Cares:

President Trump made a good speech on tax cuts today. It made sense. Cut taxes, get rid of loopholes, and make it simple again.

How LONG have we waited for that? Yes, waiting for it, and wondering if Congress is going to get THIS done.

After all, Obamacare was a HUGE tax on the American people, and we got nothing for it but misery.

Health care is destroyed. But no matter, the money keeps rolling in to them, doesn’t it?

After Trump’s speech I listened to Ken Langone, Co-Founder of Home Depot today on Neil Cavuto.

(Go to 19.00 in the video)

HE comes out with that great feel good mantra: “Forget the tax cuts.” America needs to take care of the people in Texas.

WTF? Since when?

Right. He would say that. Of course, looking at it from HIS point of view, the government handing out huge payments to people in Texas is like manna from heaven to him. Home Depot will make billions off the building that would happen. It’s government subsidies, and endless flood of profits, not to mention tax reform would probably hit him personally. HE would have to pay more.

Basically, even though he was pulling on patriotic heart-strings, he was saying that the rest of the United States needs to take it up the wazoo for Texas.

But why just Texas?

But what about all the other disasters we have? What about all the wildfires out West? The tornadoes that destroy sometimes whole cities? And floods? Just last March we had a big flood here in Missouri, and our basement flooded, and WE are on a hill. Insurance doesn’t usually cover floods on hills.

Like Texas, last March in Missouri, it rained here for a week, and like the people in Texas, it will take us more than a year to replace everything we lost. It was finished off: bedroom, bath, living room, office.

The point I’m making is disasters happen every year in the United States. It’s horrible for the people who get hit with it, but if the rest of the country doesn’t get tax reform, there won’t be much of a country left standing.

Texas will just look pretty until the next hurricane hits.

Now, I must admit: Ken has a point. If we didn’t send so much money to other countries we’d have the money for fixing such disasters. But heck, Congress can’t even fix our streets, they are too busy forking money out to build infrastructures in OTHER countries so that THEY can get Home Depots and Wal-Marts and MacDonald’s…

They just don’t tell you about it.

So, my suggestion is…fund money for the infrastructure of Texas. Fix the damns that broke, and flood proof it all. Start there. But giving money to replace the businesses and homes? Do you really think that’s fair to you and I?

It’s just another welfare program piled on top of all the others.

Sure, our hearts go out to anybody who loses their homes and businesses. But, there WILL be millions of dollars sent to help these people.

And that would be enough, IF it got to the people.

The trouble is: It never does, does it? Just ask Haiti. Bill Clinton gave Haiti about 10 percent of the money he collected to help the people of Haiti, the rest of the millions gathered help pay for Chelsea’s wedding and her $10 million dollar apartment in New York.

Watch and see if Congress doesn’t USE Harvey to ‘postpone’ tax reform.

WE must, tell them, once again:

Lower our taxes, and watch just how GREAT we can make Texas again…or else,..

You might want to think about the REAL flood that will be coming down on you.

The Young White Woman VS The Young Black Woman

Nobody Wins

Here’s what I was reading when my husband called me from work this afternoon;

CNBC:

Seventy-eight percent of full-time workers said they live paycheck to paycheck, up from 75 percent last year, according to a recent report from CareerBuilder.

Overall, 71 percent of all U.S. workers said they’re now in debt, up from 68 percent a year ago, CareerBuilder said.

He called to tell me one of his employees, a woman, couldn’t stop crying, because she found out that even with insurance, because of the high deductible, she owed over $5,550.00 cash towards her medical bills. Even though this woman is a full-time employee, she is still not making much…maybe around $33,000 a year. These days, that’s not a lot.

My husband tried to tell her that she wasn’t the only one whose medical bills were not covered by insurance, and she wasn’t the only one who struggled to pay their medical bills, in fact, everyone at the store had the same problem.

The new norm is: Just don’t get sick. You can’t afford it.

She has no children, just herself. But clearly, with everything that cost so much due to high inflation, and (Notice that is not talked about by ANY politician) life gets overwhelming.

But Joyanna, you say, the stock market is soaring higher than ever before.

Right, but who benefits from that? Most people don’t have a lot of money in the stock market. You have to put money IN to play.

And if they have 401K’s, very few people are going to pay the fees to take out loans, or take out money early to pay medical bills.

My heart goes out for this gal. She’s white. Single, and clearly hasn’t much of a support system.

On the other hand, I was in a Dollar Tree Store this morning, and there were two black women talking at the register.

When I finally came up to check out, the woman behind the counter said she was so excited…she was going to get a THIRD job!

“I have four kids!” she said, smiling big. Insinuating she was going to get a third job to help support those kids.

Now, first off…. I asked her, “Will you have time to even sleep?”

She grinned as if it was no problem whatsoever.

I walked out admiring her…hell, I only had one child and if not for my mother and father watching him at night when I was single, I don’t know how I could have done it. I got home at sometimes 3am, and got up at 6am to get him off to school, met him when he got home, made supper and off to work I’d go. This was six days a week, and I could barely have managed that, let alone four. How did she do it?

She was some kid of superwoman.

Clearly, she was getting a lot of help. She told me that one baby was six months old, the other was 18 months old. She bragged about it. All I could think of, is…”Don’t you MISS your babies?”

Yes, she had babies. So, who was changing those diapers, and managing all four kids while she was at work…grandma?

Did she get state help? Welfare? And why was she so happy about getting a third job?

I looked around. The store was a total wreck. Items were all over the floor. Shelves were in such horrible disarray, nothing was in the right place. The floor looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a year.

CLEARLY, she didn’t have to work too hard at that store, so it’s no wonder she was so happy.

The black woman didn’t have a care in the world, and with four kids, and no father, she was very happy.

The white woman, with no kids, was wondering how she was going to pay her medical bills.

Nobody Wins, when you keep hearing that the color of your skin gives you disadvantages.
And then you find out…. maybe everybody has the story of the discrimination against blacks all wrong.

They’ve been getting ‘free’ everything for many years now, due just to the color of their skin.

My heart goes out to my husband’s co-worker.

But, the black lady working at the Dollar Tree, obviously, doesn’t have a care in the world. Soon she will have three jobs, and she can have another kid!

And Nobody Knows how she does it, unless of course, you’re the young white woman who couldn’t even afford a child.

She knows. And she’s still crying.

Black Friday Blues

Nobody Wonders…

Why ANYONE in their right mind would go shopping on Black Friday at Wal-Mart?black-friday-four

And yet, millions put down their forks and scarf down mom’s pumpkin pie early in the morning just so that they can be first in line when the Black Friday Sales start.

My husband and I went into Wal-Mart around 11p.m today. It was pretty empty. But somebody had been working hard overnight to stock all the sale items onto the aisles. Sales that…were certainly not worth standing in line for an hour to buy. But, AMAZINLY people will stand in line for TVs, or a toy that they know their kid want for Christmas.

If they save $50 dollars they feel like they’ve REALLY done something great. Really, just pay the $50 and go at a less crowded time.

I don’t understand it.

For instance: There was Tupperware set, boxes and boxes of them on sale. It usually sold for $19.00 and was on sale for $7.99. REALLY? Who doesn’t have Tupperware already? And then I think: more than I might know.

I often ask myself, if Wal-Mart was selling one of those $300 dollar mixers for $100.00 would I too stand in line for it?

Would I risk getting a disease from South America, or bruises from a kicked shin? Would I stand in line for hours just to get to the kitchen aisle and see they were all sold out?black-friday-one

My mixer bit the dust years ago. I’ve been using a hand mixer, which works just fine. The other day, I saw a mixer with a bowl for $24.00. Sure, you have to turn the bowl yourself, it’s certainly not for someone who spends hours every day cooking, but that’s not me. I bought it and couldn’t be happier.

Think about it: You rarely have to mix anything more than 5 minutes. How hard it that?

When my hand breaks and I can’t turn the bowl any longer, there’s always TV dinners.black-friday-three

And you know what? Even if I DID cook every day, I really think those mixers are way overpriced. China truly is ripping us off.

Another pet peeve of mine is the new America sales scam:

Like—SALE! 50% off! Was $250.00, now only $150.00!

Which is the price it normally is, if you shop at the store and know. And they do this with clothes, appliances, well, just about everything.

I call it the, “You think you are saving money, but you’re NOT!” scam.

Are any of the companies reprimanded for false advertising? No.

Or how about the “Buy one get one half off!” (Or free as the Clintons used to say.)

(In Clinton’s case, we will be paying for them, the rest of our lives.)

Trust me, you are paying for both.

But people fall for these scams. Woman especially LOVE to brag how they got something, ANYTHING, on sale. As if, that makes them special. As IF, that makes them smart.

As if. black-friday-two

Still, the economy is SO bad, inflation and the price of food SO high, that the luxuries that you can’t afford go on sale just one day a year…you’d better be there.

For some people, that truly is the norm. And to have these sales one day a week, is…close to cruel. People go wild. They get all excited, like they are drunk with anticipation. It’s social engineering at it’s finest. They make you WANT it. DESIRE IT.

And while I’m ranting about people standing in line to get bargains, I actually am guilty of that:

Today my family stood in line for over an hour to eat Thanksgiving Dinner at Cracker Barrel. It was great, reasonably priced, and best yet: no dishes. What’s great about Cracker Barrel, they have a store that you can amuse yourself with while you’re waiting.

There’s nothing like a home-cooked Thanksgiving turkey dinner, don’t get me wrong. But, what’s most important is to spend time with those you love.

And it seems, in some cases: SHOP with them too.

Now, excuse me while I get ready for my Black Friday.

I’m raking leaves.

The Twilight Zone of American Denial

Nobody Wonderstwilight-zone

Do you ever feel like you’re in the Twilight Zone? My husband and I went to a Vitamin Store today to get some protein stuff that my husband likes to make sometimes. We went to the nearest Vitamin Store, about five minutes from the house.

Okay…you might ask? So you went to a mall? At LEAST you didn’t get shot at, look at the good side. Tonight in a Mall in Washington near Seattle, four people were shot by an “Hispanic”, but I wasn’t too concerned about getting shot, because this Mall is a ghost town. When it opened, 13 years ago, it was full of shops and people. NOW…there are only two stores left (and an IMAX): The Vitamin Store, and Cabela’s.  And Cabela’s doesn’t have to pay taxes because it claims it’s a museum, due to the clever idea that they put stuffed deer and wolves and bears everywhere.

Anyway, That’s it. I’m seriously thinking about bidding for those stuffed mountain lions and buffalos so that I can turn MY house into a museum. And pay no more taxes. What do you think? I have quite a collection of sea shells in the basement. I could start getting my dead parakeets stuffed, like Mrs. Edison did…anyway, I’m off the subject. I could even have myself stuffed when I die. That should draw a crowd.mills-mall-two

The middle-age guy working the store all by himself, you could tell, was so bored that he started talking real fast, in hopes that we would stick around. Out of the blue, he starting talking about his new 16-month-old son, (Whom he named Thaddeus after Thor, go figure that out.) and WHY he thought all the malls in the United States were closing down, because we wanted to know just how much longer the store was going to stay open.

He wasn’t sure.

“Everybody shopping online now.” He said. “That’s why all the malls are closing down.”mils-mall-3

“You don’t think the economy or the fact that this is about ten minutes away from Ferguson has anything to do with it?” I asked.

“No. Here’s the truth. All the remaining Malls in St. Louis are by major highways.”

The fact that TWO major highways passed right by the mall, and it was rush hour, and we were the only three people in the mall didn’t seem to register. I was hearing Rod Sterling say.

Doo, do, do do…do do do do…

“Thaddeus’s father, deep in thought, doesn’t know it yet, but he will soon learn the lesson…that he’s NOT on another planet, and sometimes, things are not what they seem. No, Thaddeus’s father will soon learn, that home is not always were the heart is, but…online.”

As he was talking, I was remembering the conversation I had with my friend Mona today. We talked about how the blacks for the last eight Obama years, would just walk into a store, take whatever they wanted, and walk out. They were never prosecuted, and sometimes, on a Saturday night, looting at the Mall was the most exciting thing happening.  She and I both agreed, that with daily looting, and the simple fact that people didn’t have much money to spend anymore, the stores just couldn’t keep in business. Especially in depressed places where there are more minorities.looting-in-malls

But, I kept my mouth shut.

“With online shopping, you don’t have a sales tax.” said the guy.

“No” I said. “But the shipping prices are pretty much the same expense” And having been a ‘girl’ all my life, shopping online for clothes is nothing to compare with trying something on. Not only do you have the WAIT for the package to get there, if you don’t like it, you have to send it back and pay for the shipping. It’s like a DOUBLE tax.

Yes, I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. This man, could not fathom the reality of the destruction of the American economy.  Even though, he probably had to bring his lunch to work because the food court was dark, and the Merry-Go-Round in the middle was begging to be moved to a Stephen King movie.mills-mall

As we walked out the door, I yelled back. “Be sure and take lot of movies of Thaddeus!”

He gave me the funniest look.

I should have added “You can get a really nice camera online!”

But, I was still,.in the Twilight Zone of American Denial.

Ben Stein—We’d Rather Be with Farris

Nobody’s Opinion

It’s apparent: The rich watch too much TV.  I was thinking about that today. How do they get the idea that America is doing really well? They come on our TV’s and assure us everything is fine…don’t worry, our economy is just fine. They all must hang out at the same places, the best restaurants, and you have to wonder…do they even look out their limo windows? They only see the ghettos when Blacks decide to riot? What? Do they think Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis…really are just a small part of the American universe?Ben Stein money

After all, they see mostly beautiful houses all day long. It’s getting hard for me to imagine their disconnect.

Yesterday, I was cleaning the kitchen, and I was searching for something to listen to on my cheap little telly…and there was Ben Stein, on some FOX show.  Ben Stein is the genius of conservatives.  Most people knew him as the teacher in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off…but he actually use to write speeches for Nixon and Ford.  Most importantly, and not mentioned much, is he was a graduate of Yale Law School..in fact he was Valedictorian.

Ben Stein, has made some really astute observations, like this one about Richard Nixon:

Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible? He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POWs, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel’s life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?

Oh, now I remember. He lied. He was a politician who lied. How remarkable. He lied to protect his subordinates who were covering up a ridiculous burglary that no one to this date has any clue about its purpose. He lied so he could stay in office and keep his agenda of peace going. That was his crime. He was a peacemaker and he wanted to make a world where there was a generation of peace. And he succeeded.

That is his legacy. He was a peacemaker. He was a lying, conniving, covering up peacemaker. He was not a lying, conniving drug addict like JFK, a lying, conniving war starter like LBJ, a lying, conniving seducer like Clinton—a lying, conniving peacemaker.

Love of God and compassion and empathy leads you to a very glorious place, and science leads you to killing people.Ben stein Bush

He also called Obama a racist…

What’s not to like about Ben Stein? Ben Stein has written stuff that has put tears in my eyes, and that hasn’t happened since Bambi lost his mother.

So, when Ben Stein said yesterday that the dollar was strong, and the economy was strong, I almost threw the spoon down the garbage disposal, while my hand was still attached.

How can such a brilliant man say such a stupid thing? I thought to myself.

But, then, sadly, to me, the answer is obvious. Imagine…a day in the life of Ben Stein. He gets up, maybe reads the Wall Street Journal, The Times, and perhaps a few dozen other papers online, and maybe writes a column or two. He sees the same cable news that we all do, so, you have to wonder, how he came to this conclusion?

There is only one answer: To the rich, the Ben Stein’s of the world, the rich connected to D.C. elites,  America IS Wall Street. They judge America on the stock market, on their portfolios’, on the strength of their money in their banks. Appearing on FOX news is just a lot of fun to the man like Ben Stein. A man, well connected enough to the global cabal in Washington D.C. that he honestly believes that it’s Wall Street that determines the health of our nation.  Big business, big government, has worked well in Ben’s world. It’s the only history he knows. In his world, America will never change, as long as the right money men remain in power.

What else can it be?

And it’s not just Ben Stein. I don’t know how many times I watched Sheppard Smith whoopeeing his wins in his stock market portfolio…during his news reports.

After 9.11, the Fed just kept pumping money and the poor got poorer and the rich got richer, and somehow, Ben Stein thinks that now…That worked pretty well. The economy is good.

Nobody ask him…FOR WHO?

No…rich men like Ben Stein, are in a dream world where if THEY are doing well…that means America is doing well.

Maybe I didn’t hear him right. It was a stupid thing to say, for such a ‘knowledgeable’ man. After all, I guess he doesn’t care that America’s debt is over 20 trillion, and WHAT school taught him economics, can we ask with a straight face?

Nobody Wonders…..when was the last time Ben Stein got out of his house in Beverly Hills? Maybe if we all had just a little bit of Ben Stein’s money, we’d think the economy is doing great too.

In the meantime, I think I’ll skip the Ben Stein’s “America is doing great” class.  Down here in real life, Ben’s money fell off the back of the cliff so long ago, nobody will ever find it.  Ben Stein's money two

Did YOU Lose Money Today? It’s Okay…says the Big Cheese at the Top.

I love it. The Stock market takes a big chunk out of the middle class 401K’s, but the billionaires are pretty happy, because now they can go in and buy up everything at bargain prices!Murdoch

So, what news this day,  from the man who OWNS the only conservative channel on cable? He hates Donald Trump so much, he wants his other rich buddy, the X-Mayor King of New York, to run for President: He tweeted:

“With Trump becoming very serious candidate, it’s time for next billionaire candidate, Mike Bloomberg to step into ring. Greatest mayor.”

Greatest mayor? Rupert must be hanging out among the boobs in Times Square. Can you imagine what ‘laws’ President Bloomberg would pass?

Bloomberg lives in London now. What? Does Rupert just want free rides on Air Force One? Is he missing his friend? Or is this just another attempt at getting Jeb and Hillary back in the saddle?

When the owner of FOX news and FOX sports, and the man who owns The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, wants the country ruled by liberals, that should tell you something.

The RICH, do not want Donald Trump in power. Jeb, Hillary, Bloomberg would be their puppets.

In the meantime, we are being told, “Don’t worry! You’ll get your money back! It always comes back!”

Right. You can wait…another decade right? Just like our lame political process…they expect us to WAIT..for things to get better, and it…never happens. stock market

Nobody’s Fool: Greg Palast

Nobody’s Fool

Here’s someone to explain the fact that what we are hearing about the Greeks are all wrong: Greece was set up by the bankers to “fail” so that the billionaires could come in and buy up the Greek assets for pennies on the dollar. I’m sure they are looking to do the same thing here.

Which is why Hillary already sold our uranium to Putin.

Greg Palast is an investigative reporter. So congratulations Greg! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week, for helping explain this whole Banksters rip-off to the people over here who are talking about …how Jeb Bush thinks we should all work longer hours.

Sure Jeb. If only the 100 million out of work could find a job, we’re all for it!

Enjoy!

(And thanks to Alex Jones)

Who Closed Down The NYSE?

Nobody Wonders

Most of us who read the news have figured out, that Wall Street had some big players who rigged the system long before the crash of 2008, by building a special internet system that got to certain servers owned by certain banks. While it cost them ‘millions’ to build, they knew that even getting information a few seconds before everyone else would give them the ‘edge.’ These ‘players’ received information faster than anybody else, thereby giving them first bids on trading. I read this in Vanity Fair, whose article I do not have in front of me but because this is a blog not a newspaper item, sorry.

Someday I’ll hire a researcher. (LOL!)NYS

I mention it, because I was amazed when I read it. It fit in with our Presidents (George W., Bill  Clinton and Obama) handing over the U.S. treasury to  Goldman’s Sachs Presidents. Have you noticed that hardly ANYBODY anywhere has found this Executive closeness to Wall Street and the Feds a bit…suspicious?

Like I said, I only read about it in Vanity Fair.

Now, China is on the verge of their own 2008, where the little guy is going to lose a lot of money. The E.U. is in a panic…the Euro is in trouble, Greece is about to depart so…this will cause a panic, which they don’t want.

What would the big boys do who control the banks?

Would shutting it down the New York Stock Exchange stop the bleeding? Just tell the public it’s a minor thing, don’t worry, be happy.

And nobody knows what happened. (sure)

The Euro is an important part of the global government plans and so, NOBODY WONDERS…just WHO closed down the New York Stock Exchange to make sure that the right parties did NOT lose big money.

Who buys that there was a computer glitch?

Nobody Wonders.

Nobody’s Fool: David Knight

Nobody’s Fool

What came first, the chicken or the egg? Did the elites PLAN to outlaw cash and therefore, invented the debit card so that cash could slowly be erased from the planet?

I can’t tell you how many young people I have talked to brag about how EASY it is to pay all their bills online. Having anybody reach into my stash of cash at the bank STILL gives me the willies…what you are basically doing is telling your uncle to go into your house, and take the cash he needs every month, and you will trust that he takes only what he needs, with you not there.

It’s clear, that the banks want to completely get rid of cash. There are too many people who can make ends met, or trade among themselves with cash transactions, and the bankers and politicians HATE it.

And here, David Knight gives proof of what the Banks want to do.

When all the cash is controlled by banks alone, it’s not going to be pretty. Nothing will be able to keep them out of your bank account if they so choose.

We ARE being forced into it…and they are trying to make everyone buy their necessities by offering you cash back incentives. They are paying you to not use cash.

When our ability to trade with currency is gone, so along goes our freedom to survive on our own.

Sadly– most everyone in the world thinks this is a natural evolution of our wonderful technology. (Idiots)

So, Congratulations David Knight! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week, for at least trying to wake people.

Good luck with that.

Nobody Gets Dazed and Confused

Nobody Flashes

I was standing in line at my local cable company today, because they had just told me my “introductory” rates were over and I now had to pay another $100 for services, when I just couldn’t help myself—-

I started a conversation with the man in front of me.confused

It seems, he was an insurance broker and the first words out of his mouth were, “They really screwed everything up with Obamacare.”  As I listened to the man, he was complaining that nobody knew what was going on, the doctors were refusing to “lower” their rates, and therefore, many people were going to hospitals and doctors, where they were NOT covered and didn’t even know it.  He couldn’t get answers from anyone, and everybody was paying MORE money, and well…to be fair, I did start the conversation with, “What do you do?”

So, there I was…there to cancel my phone and Cable service, but I had to keep the internet, which of course also went up another $30 dollars, and I was realizing the vast network of money being sucked up by everyone that can.

When it was finally my turn, I asked the lady why my internet kept going up, and she shrugged.

“Well, how about I cancel it, and then go home, and join up again for the introductory price and save myself thirty dollars a month?” I said.

“That sounds like too much trouble.” she said.

So, because I truly do need the internet, I decided to go home and think about it.

This is such everyday stuff I know, and boring, but Americans are having to make these decisions every day, because everything is going up…and the salaries are not. It’s like we are all trapped in one of those movies where the people are at the bottom of a well, and the water is rising, and they keep trying to keep their heads above the water and then there’s screaming…AHAHHHHH!!!

That’s me.

Which is what I feel like doing today. Scream. My Santa Fee broke down last Saturday, in the middle of a very popular main drag, and luckily, my girlfriend had AAA or I would have had to pay a big tow fee. And I was feeling guilty about it…the dealer had told me that at 60,000 miles I needed to replace the timing belt…which of course was $600. But I thought…WHY? My old Pontiac Firebird went on for over 125,000 miles without me having to do anything to it but change the oil and tires.Dazed

So…I didn’t get it done.

I found out today, from the garage it was towed to, that it was going to cost over $800. Timing belt had to be replaced along with the OTHER thing that broke.  (Some kind of drive shaft)

“So” I asked,” I should have had the timing belt replaced like everyone says and this wouldn’t have happened? ”

“Well, no.” he said. “We might have replaced the timing belt and not seen this and you would have had to bring it back and it would have cost you even more.”

So, here’s the deal.

They say, all the ‘sensors’ in all these new cars are the problem. They may all do great things, but the parts in them? They break.

Thomas Edison made a light bulb that shone for over 100 years, and they use to make cars that did not have to have major engine work every 60,000 miles. I know, I have owned a few.

What don’t I get?

Nobody Remembers The First Meeting of the Federal Reserve

Nobody RemembersBernanke

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations which grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent of their fathers”…Thomas Jefferson

By now, we all know how our many recent past Presidents worshiped the Federal Reserve Chairman’s, and how this private banking organization called the Federal Reserve controls our whole economy…at least some of us do.

The average man doesn’t think much about the Federal Reserve because, besides Ron Paul, you won’t catch ANYBODY anywhere saying anything against it. No politician dares speak of it.

So, I thought I’d take an excerpt out of Judge Napolitano’s book, It Is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong,  to help us all remember, the true history of the Federal Reserve, and how it has been the cause of so much misery.Bretton Woods three

On November 22nd, 1010, Senator Nelson W. Aldrich (R-Rhode Island), with five companions, set forth under assumed names in a privately chartered railroad care from Hoboken, New Jersey, to Jekyll Island, Georgia, allegedly on a duck-hunting expedition. The need to maintain secrecy was extremely important to the men who were aboard the train traveling to J.P. Morgan’s private retreat at the Jekyll Island Club. The full guest list would be later revealed as including Senator Aldrich (Rockefeller kinsman,) Henry P. Davison ( a J.P. Morgan partner), Paul Warburg (a Kuhn Loeb & Co. partner), Frank A. Vanderlip (a vice president of Rockefeller’s National City Bank of New York), Charles D. Norton (the president of Morgan’s First National Bank of New York), and professor A. Piatt Andrew (Head of the National Monetary Commission research staff), who had recently been made an assistant secretary of the treasury under President Taft, and who was a technician with a foot in tin both the Rockefeller and the Morgan camps.

*************

These powerful banking elites would devise the new central banking system and draft what is now known as the Aldrich Plan. The Fed was given a monopoly of the issue of all bank notes: national banks as well as state banks. All nation banks were “forced” to become members of the Federal Reserve System.  

***************

A lower interest rate means it is less painful to the government to borrow money. This system led to the national debt ballooning from $2.6 billion in 1910 to $25.9 billion in 1920, which also led to the sharp spike of inflation that followed.

****************

The great nations of the world would abandon the gold standard in order to print money to fund World War II. With the massive debt accrued by European nations to fight the war, as well as the need for the United States to pay its bills for the war, a new monetary sits had to be formed. Shortly after World War II, Lord Keynes and Harry Dexter White, a U.S. Treasury official, propared the plans for a new global financial system. Representatives  of the financial rulers of the United Nations assembled in Breton Woods., New Hampshire, and they enacted the new global monetary system.

****************************

Massive increase in the money supply or inflation, by way of fractional reserve banking and a fiat based monetary system, causes prices to rise as well as the boom and bust cycle. The people who benefit from this inflationary system are the ones who get their hands on the money first, the banks.Dollar

And it’s funny….Every day we hear how the Feds will not raise interest rates, because then the government can continue to borrow at 0 percent.  I have read way too many articles saying that it’s all going to collapse, and soon.

In the meantime, the rich are getting MUCH richer, as if they all know what’s coming and like squirrels they are gathering as many nuts as possibly to last out the winter ahead.

The crash of 2008, was basically a major theft of the American people. We really haven’t recovered and Obama’s policies, Like FDR’s has made the economy worse.

Still, thanks to the Fed Chairman’s, ..the stock market continues to soar. Good for people who own stock. Not so much, for the majority of the people.

And the dollar, is only worth about 30 cents.

Wouldn’t it be something to one day, go to the morning Drudge report, see the pictures of all the men who run and profit from the Federal Reserve, their names, and their incomes?

Nobody Wonders how much they are all worth NOW— don’t you?
