Could one of the reasons that Donald Trump won the Presidency was because, Donald Trump is the master at building his ‘brand?”
Fortune 500 companies spend fortunes trademarking their names, building their ‘brands’ and protecting their reputations, and if there is one thing that President Trump did better than most any other business man, was make the brand of “Trump” known all over the world.
And he worked hard to make sure that brand came with excellence.
One thing you had to say about Trump’s hotels and casinos, they were perfect examples of perfection and wealth.
Now, think about the Clinton brand. By the time, Hillary ran for President, the brand of “Clinton” was pretty much worn out. When you thought of the brand “Clinton” you thought of Monika Lewinsky. When you thought of Hillary, you thought of a woman who was controlling, and not respected in any kind of way. She appeared most of the time as a ruthless and bitter woman.
You thought of…four men dead in Benghazi and, “What difference did it make?”
Trump protected and promoted his brand with his life. Even after his divorce from Ivanka, she made a pizza commercial with him, and that pretty much cleared up his, “He LEFT her for a younger woman!” image. It was really a stroke of genius.
Trump protected his brand. Hillary…did not.
Now, let’s take this a step further….and can we admit that sovereign nations are a brand? America has always had a strong brand of greatness throughout history. It has always been known as the greatest country in modern history.
It’s Constitution alone gives her that status. And how does a nation show it’s ‘brand’?
By, it’s flag.
Conservative Americans are proud of their flag. They know the price that was paid for the ideas it stands for. Millions of American have died protecting it.
Which is why, the progressives have been trying to destroy the very symbol of that great ‘brand’ called America.
Patriotism is now being attacked.
For years, our flag has been burned at every protest. Kids are not allowed to wear the flag on their tee-shirts at school. The list goes on and on about how the American flag is attacked every single day.
What is being attacked is not only the flag, but America’s people.
This is how they are trying to destroy America’s culture, so as to push it into the one world government. They HAVE to destroy the brand.
Obama’s bowing to every national leader in the world, sent a clear message that America was no longer ‘great’. Did you ever think that it was part of the “elites” plan? Not just Obama’s?
Before Obama left office, he talked a lot about “tribes.” How the world was divided into ‘tribes’ and that’s not a good thing.
But…here’s the good news. Breaking the brands of nations and molding them into a one world nation, might not be as easy as they think. People are just not going to go quietly into that good tyrannical night.
The elites want a one world government, nations without borders…. everybody living under one world run by them.
This is not a conspiracy anymore. It’s a fact. And yet…all nations have pride in the culture that their ancestors lived and died for, and why the hell shouldn’t they?
The French WANT to be French.
The Americans want to be Americans.
The Brits want to be Brits.
The Muslims want to be Muslims.
The ‘tribes’ of the world will always want to stay in their own tribe. For all the complaints that have heard from the blacks wanting to be treated equally here in America, in reality, they want to stay with their own “tribe.”
I was watching a National Geographic special tonight, and in it, they were talking about how war is a good thing, because, the conquered always got a new culture from the conquered.
The fact that millions die in war was…just accepted.
They also said that the renaissance actually came about because of the Muslims invading Europe. The Muslims brought TRUE knowledge to Europe.
(Too bad they didn’t keep some of it for themselves.)
I thought that was a stretch. They are trying to rewrite the “Muslims” into world history, so that we can all accept them as “equals.” Merkel thinks that her people should accept some of the wonderful ‘culture’ of the Muslims. (right.)
The elites think, that if they mix all the nations like the Tower of Babel, sooner or later, we will all get along. They look at humanity as a humongous Petri dish to be manipulated and bred like their royal horses.
And if you look at the last actions of President Trump’s actions, in Syria and with North Korea and Russia: if you look at it that he is the ‘brand’ master, and he is just trying to strengthen America’s ‘brand” … It makes perfect sense.
Yes, the good news is that America voted in a man who wanted to “Make America great again.”
The British people voted to become British again.
The French will vote (I hope) to become French again.
For these were the nations who supported Liberty.
This one world government does not.
The reality is, not all ‘brands’ are successful. So, we can be glad that we have a ‘brand’ master at the helm.
Maybe it’s not the ‘globalists’ that are controlling him like everyone is saying.
Maybe, it’s just President Trump doing what he knows how to do best:
Building a great brand.
Last week, there were two great speeches from CPAC that everyone should see. Two of my readers, Mrs .O, and ‘g’ man, turned me on to Sheriff’s Clarke’s great speech on the rule of law. Truly one of the best speeches ever given on the matter.
The other one was from Nigel Farage, who paints the whole picture of what’s happening to us all. The global revolution is what is happening. The rich elites do not want to let go of their power…and we have seen this with the recent appearance of X President George W. Bush siding with the Obamas against Trump, and Tony Blair, his partner in globalization trashing anybody who refutes their global plans for takeover of the world.
Any GOP Congress member who does not back Trump is on our list of enemies.
Nigel is the Thomas Paine of our revolution. Common Sense is back.
So, turn off the cable guys…because they don’t work for you. Eighty percent of the time its all about getting you to doubt your new President.
Instead, enjoy the common sense of these two great men.
Just how much success President Trump will have, in trying to save this country, especially the parts that have been being destroyed decade after decade. And how is he going to do this with a $20 trillion dollar deficit? Is Congress going to even let him lower taxes? One thing is sure: Only Trump seems to acknowledge how really bad things are.
Our “government” has been sucking the middle class’s paychecks, and spending it…mostly overseas…to build up the middle class of China and India, so that the foreign middle classes would be able to afford the Fortune 500 companies products, keeping the Congress and their buddies on Wall Street fat and happy at the stock market.
Notice, the stock market never seems to suffer, and when the going got tough, President Bush made us bail THEM out, so that the great circle of globalization would not be broken. They did that so that guys like Shepard Smith could go to work with a smile on his face. The FEDS just kept pumping inflation, and now the middle class can’t afford to even go to the doctor.
To add to the despair, now we have to watch Obama frolic in the island sun, with Lord Branson. I’d take waterboarding any day, rather than to have to look at pictures of Obama’s daily vacations.
Here in St. Louis, back in the 1970s and 1980s, nothing ever seemed this bad. Most everyone had a job, and money. Back then, a medical emergency didn’t send them into bankruptcy. And as I look around my little city, I can’t believe how much the city has changed. And I watch with despair.
The decay happened ever so slowly. First, it was the strip mall up the street. There was a country-western bar where people danced, a drugstore, a Radio Shack, and dozens of little shops.
Now, the whole Mall is a government center. They built another mall five miles away, with hundreds of stores, which I’ve written about, and they got subsidized. Didn’t have to pay taxes.
Another mall which is about ten miles away, is now…another government complex.
Tell me..how many government complexes do we need? What? Does our government build these complexes to give the people jobs because there actually are no jobs? Was it decided long ago that most people would work for the government and the rest would have service jobs?
What genius thought that up?
North County has always been ruled by democrats. Pawn shops line the main drag now.
So, once again: you have Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, and so many, many, poor sections in the United States. How is President Trump going to be able to bring back commerce to these democratically destroyed areas again?
Decades ago, our Congressmen and Presidents, made packs with the bankers, to make the world a ‘better place.’ They just didn’t tell us they were going to use our money to do it, and start making a better place over there—not here.
Okay, depressing post. BUT…good news! Zuckerface is going to put computers in human brains…and I’m hoping he starts with his own head. Think of the money he’d make off his own brain cells.
One can still dream.
You have to wonder…is Obama happy about Hillary losing the election? Notice, he doesn’t seem too upset about it. All the time he was campaigning with her, he made it clear that voting for Hillary would be the same as voting for him. It was HIS legacy that was at stake, not hers.
No, Hillary’s losing didn’t concern him much. All along, Obama has been positioning himself on the world stage. While the Clintons were going around selling off America and getting rich, Obama was bowing and cowing and charming the global elites.
In Germany today, alongside Angela Merkel, he seemed happy, content, and totally convinced that in the long run, globalization, and the elites dreams of controlling everyone’s life down to their last internet post, will be coming soon. Their way is the RIGHT way, no matter what their citizens think.
Obama’s bravado knows no bounds.
In fact, he boosts of how great the world is, how everything is better, the standard of living has improved. You have to wonder what planet does this guy live on?
As for Merkel? She wants to FORCE Germany to submit to Islam, and chaos. They both remarked how some governments ignore their people, when speaking of Syria. As if, neither one of them were guilty of that. BUT…Obama was thrown out of office, and soon, I have no doubt the German people have had enough, and Merkel will be replaced.. France may go too.
Western Civilization will not go down quietly now that we know what they’re up too.
They pretend that the great historical wins by both England’s Brexit and the United States, didn’t happen because of them. Soon, Obama will be lecturing and causing riots at colleges all around the world, while Merkel will be having to actually fork out money to protect Germany. Obama didn’t look too kindly when she reminded him today that he was no longer going to be in power.
Why did these two elite, rich, snobs, lose their popularity? Why?
Their excuse was…. the internet:
They claim, that if not for the internet, then surely Obama and Merkel wouldn’t be in such dire straits now, and you know what?
They could be right.
The elites have almost complete control of the cable news outlets. Even the last conservative channel on cable, FOX, had many of their pundits trying to get Trump destroyed. Without Hannity and Lou Dobbs, FOX would be just another CNN.
But, both Merkel and Obama now know, that the older generations, the native citizens that have worked, been taxed, are sick of having their country handed over to foreign countries and a global elite oligarchy and they are not going to take it. And they talk to each other…on the internet, where they get their news.
They are now going full force on Orwellian speak: black is white, what THEY say is fact: and there is a NEW enemy: the White Supremist.
Yes, you and I, if we are white, are the new enemy. The NAZI whites, who are actually paying for all their great meals and luxury hotels, and free Airplane rides around the world, are tired of being called names.
They ARE the global bullies, and it’s clear, they mean to stay there.
They are dividing the masses, and attacking the white European, Anglo/Saxon race, to destroy it. Come in Mexico! Come in Syria! Destroy those racist white people!
Thanks to abortion, and the ruined economy, they see the writing on the wall. The white population will not replace itself. So, they’ve thrown their hopes and dreams on the blacks and browns, which in their minds, will be controlled easily. Think about it: Why did Congress for over 50 years, ignore the poor schools in the cities? It benefited someone, didn’t it?
It benefited the democrats.
And the next step was controlling our voice: The internet. Merkel compared it to getting used to the printing press:
“It took a while until societies learned how to find the right kind of policies to contain this and to manage and steer this,” she said.
WHAT? The printing press had to be controlled? WTF?
So, how will the elites STEER the internet? it’s already happening. Whatever speech they don’t like, they will censor. Twitter has been deleting ‘alt-right’ accounts, while Obama and Hillary egg on violent protests. You want to see real racism…look at any Yahoo or Microsoft headline. China want complete control…
Is it any wonder they feel confident?
I once said Windows 10 was given out freely so that everyone would be brainwashed by its liberal take on the news. I stand by that. Yahoo News is even worse.
No, they are planning a revolution…with the kids. The young, who they have carefully brainwashed into being little wimps and babies in our public school system.
You know, Hitler took over Germany the same way. He got the socialist into the schools and universities. He destroyed his enemies with false flags.
Obama has plans to get the kids…they may have missed this generation, but to them, it’s all about the one world government, which has been secretly born. They introduced it through NAFTA, the North American Treaty, the EU…and now it’s starting to fall apart.
Thanks to the internet, we found out.
In October, Obama said it was time to move the internet beyond the “Wild Wild West.” And proposed “truthiness tests” for media companies online.
Drudge, Brietbart…our few remaining bastions of real truth, will be called “False news” Obama has already introduced the new doublespeak.
False news….will not be allowed.
You can’t download Brietbart app on Apple Iphone.
The elites still think they have control.
We are NOT out of danger yet.
I was having a pleasant afternoon today, until I turned on the TV, and there he was: Obama. Lecturing the mass of very ‘low energy’ marauding, not-too-happy to have to listen to this snob, United Nations attendees, on how we should just all get along, and have open borders, and gee…it’s just not right that the 1 percent has all the money…because guess what? Those poor people who can’t make a living in the slums can still SEE that penthouse apartment!
Yeah. I doubt they are feeling guilty, it’s more like they are all thinking: Maybe I’d better hire an extra bodyguard.
“I understand that the gaps between rich and poor are not new, but just as the child in the slum today can see the skyscraper nearby, technology now allows any person with a smart phone to see how the most privileged among us live and the contrast between their lives and others,” said Obama.
Well…just WHY did all this vast wealth end up in just a few hands? That wonderful word that Obama, The Bushes, The Clintons, the EU, the McCains…(well, you get the picture) all those powerful elites love to say: Globalization.
You hear it from ALL Their lips: Globalization is good! Nationalization is Bad! Now, repeat that once a day for the rest of your life and memorized it.
Globalization has dished out more misery on the planet than 200 Hurricane Katrina’s.
People are looking around the sad state of the world, and they are…getting it. They don’t WANT a one world no borders. They don’t WANT to merge with the Muslims. But the elites, are trying to force it on the world.
I listened to Obama’s idiotic la-la land vision of a ranting Marxist/Muslim speech today….a man who never held a REAL job in his life, say some of the most ridiculous things, and I wanted to call my plumber and ask him to bring over the Drano.
(I won’t go there.) I’ll let you.
Obama added that many government institutions around the world have been unfit to handle the changes globalization has brought.
Oh dear. Really? Ya THINK! You elite scum decided to merge the world and now it’s not going to well?
Well— when you bring in people from other countries, to take away the living of the people who pay YOU to protect and defend them, then yeah…you are going to have a lot of unhappy people. Obama also said “alternative visions of the world have pressed forward in both the wealthiest countries and the poorest.” The president pointed to the rise of religious fundamentalism, nationalism, and what he called a “crude populism.”
“Today a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself,” Obama said in a thinly veiled shot at Republican nominee Donald Trump.
When your President is asking YOU to comment suicide so that the world can be a happier place and make HIM feel better, (And the 1 percent continue to hold onto more than half the wealth) then …you know where you can stick your globalization Mr. Barack.
I’ll send over my plumber.
At the beginning of his speech, Obama was talking about all the success he has made since he was in office. Funny…I couldn’t find that bragging he did on any internet transcript.
But, here’s the big problem. The elites are flooding the West ON PURPOSE. It’s the only way to erase the borders. They know that the West will fall to Islam, but they really don’t care. They want the one world government, controlled by a few. And they intend to FORCE the West to accept Islam. If ISIS kills thousands of people, so what? Not going to effect the 1 percent.
“It’s a truism that globalism has led to a collision of cultures.” said Obama.
Okay…that sounds right, right? But Obama is NOT upset that Islam brings rape, murder, a subjugation of women and gays and complete intolerance for any other religion but their own to the West. No. He’s upset that the West doesn’t accept Islam.
“We see liberal societies express opposition when women choose to cover themselves. We see protests responding to western newspaper cartoons that caricature the prophet Mohammed.”
And here’s the pitch for the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT TO CONTROL IT ALL:
If we are honest, we know that no external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to co-exist for long,” Obama said. “Until basic questions are answered about how communities co-exist, the embers of extremism will continue to burn. Countless human beings will suffer.”
Translation: We must form a world government.
At the U.N. today, was George Soros, who is behind this global takeover. He has given millions to Obama, to Hillary, to BLM: used to create chaos and riots.
“We will invest in startups, established companies, social impact initiatives, and businesses started by migrants and refugees. These investments are intended to be successful. But our primary focus is to create products and services that truly benefit migrants and host communities,” the 86-year-old said in an official statement.
“Refugees need access to financial and legal services, education, and employment opportunities; we believe the private sector is uniquely placed to help build the infrastructure needed to support these services,” the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said of the Soros investment.
We are seeing it all around us. American are losing their jobs, and being replaced by cheap foreign labor.
But American companies are now trying to outsource more varieties of jobs, including accounting, healthcare and design jobs. For example, American universities have hired H-1Bs for 100,000 prestigious jobs, including professors, lecturers, doctors, therapists, scientists and researchers. Engineering giant Caterpillar continues to hire H-1B workers in Illinois as it fires hundreds of American engineers and other white-collar workers, DeLoitte and other U.S. accounting firms have asked for more than 20,000 H-1B visas to replace American business-school graduates.
Yes, they are pretty much sucking up the planet, and Hillary wants you all to know that the government is going to give everyone jobs!
Making solar panels!
“A society that asks less of oligarchs than ordinary citizens will rot from within,” he said.
And soon after that statement, the rotting oligarch left the podium.
I can’t WAIT to get rid of cable.
You know that moment when something someone says, just HITS you right between the eyes, and you go.. “That’s it! That’s what I’ve been thinking and wow…you just said it all in a few short sentences…thanks! “
I just got the latest Sharyl Attkisson’s book, Stonewalled, from the library, (I ALWAYS read a book before I buy it.) and here’s the section that sent me into yelling “YES! YES!”
“Big corporations rule the world. You many choose not to believe it. That’s exactly what they’re counting on. They influence vast amounts of information we receive. They control some facets of government so effectively that the government has all but given up trying to resist it. And it’s the same whether we’re talking about Democrats or Republicans.
What’s even more dangerous is the fact that, today, government, politicians, and big corporations might as well be one and the same. Their self-interest are inextricably, intertwined. Members of Congress serving on pivotal committees solicit contributions–legal payoffs–from the very special interests they’re suppose to oversee. It results in a perverse dynamic where Congress ends up protecting and defending those it should be watch dogging. Likewise, federal agencies view the companies and industries they’re suppose to regulate as “clients” or “stakeholders.” These agencies are largely bought and paid for. They act as partners working in tandem for a common purpose. They exchange information between themselves that they keep secret from the public, which actually owns the information. Big corporations write and approve press releases that the government issues. As allies they hold closed meeting and make decision about matters of public interest without the public’s. impute.”
She summed it up so succinctly, that if you believe what Sharyl just said, then all the issues that the ‘globalists’ in both parties are pushing make complete sense: Bringing in cheap labor, flooding the country with illegal immigrants and then granting them all food, housing, medical care, and education at the EXPENSE of the American citizen is in the big corporate favor.
So was Obamacare. That’s why Romney put it first in Massachusetts.
Bernie Sanders people see it…the Trumpsters see it…this election is all about nationalism VS globalism, which is just another word for the rich to keep their stock portfolios growing.
Trump said last week:
“We got here because we switched from a policy of Americanism – focusing on what’s good for America’s middle class – to a policy of globalism, focusing on how to make money for large corporations who can move their wealth and workers to foreign countries all to the detriment of the American worker and the American economy.” In 40 years, we have not run a trade surplus. The most self-sufficient republic in all of history now relies for its necessities upon other nations.
Okay. So most everyone with a brain is starting to figure this out….and now, how do we stop it when the big corporations literally OWN the cable stations and can produce the propaganda that we hear pushing us to “fundamentally change” our country into a third world cess pool?
We know that Hillary rigged her election. Bernie Sanders would have won. Bernie drew huge crowds. Trump draws HUGE crowds…and yet, the media drums into the masses day after day after day that Hillary can’t be beat. We are simply being brainwashed by state controlled propaganda.
Pat Buchannan seems to think that people all over the world want to retain their culture and their county and America is no exceptions…he points out the Brexit vote in England supports this.
But there is one thing he is leaving out: The QUEEN of England wanted to leave the E.U.
NOBODY in our crooked government wants to keep America….America, because they are all tied to the big corporate powers…most of them.
Yes, they had the Queen. The Queen has been there HOW long? Trump isn’t even President yet…and that’s why they are doing everything they can to keep him out of office.
Will OUR Congress and Hillary step aside gracefully and admit defeat if Donald Trump wins, like David Cameron did?
But there is one thing I DO know. Stonewalled is going to find a home in another library…mine…you might want to check it out too.
—-Two points about Paul Ryan’s speech today when he accepted the Speakership to the House.
One: right off he made a very snide comment that I took to be against Donald Trump, he mentioned there would be no ‘conversions.’ It was ad-libbed, and not in his online printed speech.
Two: He made it clear that if the “minority will work in good faith, instead of trying to stop the majority, they might be able to join the majority. This wasn’t meant for the Democrats, this was a bullet aimed right at the backs of the Freedom caucus in the House, who agree and represent the people.
” A neglected minority will gum up the works. A respected minority will work in good faith. Instead of trying to stop the majority, they might try to become the majority.”
So, it will be up to Paul who he wants to “respect.”
And Paul ALSO made it clear, that HIS job, their job, is NOT to echo what the people want.
“But we do not echo the people. We represent them. We are supposed to study up and do the homework that they cannot do. So when we do not follow regular order—when we rush to pass bills a lot of us do not understand—we are not doing our job. Only a fully functioning House can truly represent the people.”
Really? That’s not in the Constitution Paul, is it? That’s a rather interesting interpretation of the document. You’re there to ‘decide’ what’s good for the people? If you think polygamy is “good” for the people, then we just don’t get it? Is bringing in millions of immigrants to take Americans jobs away GOOD for the American people? Is THAT what we want?
So…giving Obama everything that he wanted was in OUR interest? The country’s interest? You ran on conservative values, got to Washington, and decided that the Democrats had the better ideas?
That first sentence basically said: You people out there, you don’t know jack shit, and only we, the people in Washington know what’s good for you. You must trust us to do what’s good for you.
Paul Ryan in that short speech, will continue to represent the established Mitt Romney, Bush, Clinton, big corporation/ government that dictates and makes all our lives miserable.
Now, more than ever, we need an outsider like Trump for President. Trump will side with that small minority that echo’s the people’s wishes, and who are suppose to represent their states, and voters. The people need a “people’s” President. While Trump did say we should be able to bring in the brighter minds from outside, I don’t think he would go so far as to say that they should replace our own workers…in every single field. I’ll be watching him for that remark.
Sadly, Paul Ryan got cocky. He sold out.
Nobody thinks Paul Ryan taking over the leadership in the house has been planned for a long time, and Mitt Romney was in the background making it happen. He was there today grinning like a proud papa.
The chess pieces are being slowly put in place.
Now…let’s see what Paul Ryan is going to bring into fruition to the American people.
Exhibit A: Who owns Congress? Who are “we the people” REALLY fighting? Carly Fiorina would agree…the big elites.
Let’s start with Disney…
Some people, when they hear the words “Illuminati” or “New World Order” immediately dismiss it. Face it…even the boomer’s education was controlled…we got taught in our schools ONLY the bare minimal of history, almost NO geography, certainly nothing about political systems, too much about sex in science class, and the boredom in the classroom was astonishing. Not only that, nothing was ever taught about the Federal Reserve or how to play the stock market…the engines by which the world revolves and the rich teach their children, in private.
As I was watching the beginning of this film, I remembered a strange happening when I was about 11. I started getting flyers on the Roscrucians. They wanted me to join their group. If I joined their ‘club” I would learn the knowledge of all the world. They preferred I not tell anybody.
Since it was the very first mail I received EVER in my life, except maybe a birthday card from my grandmother, I must admit..it TEMPTED me…I really did want to belong to a secret society that would give me, year by year the knowledge of the world. But even then, I thought “What’s the catch?”
REMEMBER: I was about 10 or 11. I showed these letters to my mother, who just look at them, and went back to dusting her furniture. I continued to receive an invitation from this group for about two years…and then no more.
It’s not like I signed up for it…you know, picked it out of a comic book. I never answered them back…even though I wanted to. It was the “You can’t tell a soul!” business that bothered me. Really. THAT bothered me. It almost seemed, Lucifer like.
My grandfather was a Mason. He was one of the most prominent Mason members during the depression, and DURING that depression, he made his millions. (By the way, nobody knows where those ‘millions’ went, we suspect, his alcoholic son. ) My mother always laughed because he had an 8th grade education, and didn’t even know how to dial a phone, and yet…he had connections to the biggest companies in town, who gave him their business.
My grandfather and his business dealings remain a mystery to this day. BUT…was Prescott Bush at those Mason meetings? I often wonder as the Bush family had a business not to far away from my grandfather business. Yes, the Bush’s have some ties here.
Yesterday, I was going throw some old jewelry of my mother’s and found a very small golden necklace, with the Mason sign, and the Jewish star engraved on a small Torah. Where did it come from?
It was my grandfather who told us we were descendants of the Adams…but both John and John Quincy were against the Masons and the secret societies of their day. John Quincy wrote some really great dissertations on the subject. I often wondered if that was the reason why, neither John OR his son ever got much of a monument in Washington D.C….John Adams surely was just an instrumental as the other founders in the development of the country.
Anyway, later on in this video, he goes into 9/11 conspiracy stuff, so if you truly think it’s worthless, don’t watch. They did have some things I haven’t seen anywhere else.
And I AM forever wanting to hear every bit and piece of every idea and side of anything…simply because, how ELSE are you going to make anything out of any of it? I am, what I am.
While long…the video has the history that we all can agree upon: The rich…get richer. It’s getting rich in the first place that’s hard. Once there, it’s all in the family.
(By the way, the Bilderberg group has picked Hillary to be the next President…just thought you should know.)
I was listening to the ‘great’ Obama economic growth report on the radio this afternoon while driving my car, and THEN heard the news that Monsanto, the last remaining big salary jobs corporation remaining in St. Louis, was going to lay off 2,400 workers at its St. Louis Headquarters.
What? Could it be that Europe doesn’t WANT genetically designer crops, I thought? The company says…no problem, they are still making billions, it’s just some of their patents are up. Oh. Good to know that those 2,400 people aren’t being replaced by cheap Chinese labor, don’t you think?
The next news? The United States Steel Corporation was closing their coke plant in Granite City, Illinois, laying off 176 workers.—Union jobs. It’s not the first layoff from this plant since Obama took office.
Granite City is right across the river…and the people of that small town depend on those jobs….they come over from the river and spend their money at the Cardinal ballpark here.
In the meantime, in the middle of this ‘roaring’ Obama economy, the new NFL football stadium that they want to build right down on the Arch riverfront, which so far has NO team really, and no way to figure out it’s backing, just got a bid for a name.
The National Car Stadium!
From CBS St. Louis:
National Car Rental has agreed to pay $158 million over 20 years for naming rights. There may be reason for stadium backers to sweat: Rams owner Stan Kroenke won’t return calls to local leaders trying to stop him from taking the team to Los Angeles. Some Missouri lawmakers have threatened not to appropriate money for the stadium bonds unless there’s a public vote on the plan. And a city alderman is threatening to filibuster the local stadium funding package until the mayor delivers a plan to fight crime and poverty.
So the question is…how can anyone believe that the economy is growing when so many people are still getting laid off?
If they can put more officers on the streets of downtown, (taxes) and IF they can bribe the aldermen to go ahead and make the taxpayers fork out more money, (even though we are still paying for the old stadium) those Monsanto workers might be able to get a job in the new stadium…selling hot dogs! I bet some of those old Monsanto employees could come up with some really fantastic tasting hot dog, with cool new names like Roundup Doggie, Bovine Big Boy, or maybe even design a hot dog that has caffeine.
It’s a win/win!
What do you think? Anything would be better than the Rams.
Nobody suggests we call this the “National Hunger Games Ram the Taxpayers Again Stadium.” If the taxpayers have to pay for this stadium, it’s only fair we get to put our two cents into the name.
What do you think? Anything would be better than the Rams. Let them go to L.A.
While Rome collapsed—they entertained the masses with games.
Let’s start our weekend on a great note, shall we? Ted Cruz’s heroic stance against Obamacare has finally come to some kind of fruition. YEAH TED! Ted, has never stopped attacking the corrupt leaders of the House. He has led those “dirty and RADICAL right-wing conservatives” across the nation into seeing, the main problem with the Republican Party, and for that, he got called a “Jackass” by John Bonehead on his way out.
Whoa. If the barn was dirty in the first place, it’s only because of the biggest shitter in the house has been crapping up the barn so long, SOMEBODY had to call in the aerosol.
So, all you people out there who voted to put in the men to STOP Obamacare, you are now…named…dirty. Radicals.
Asked if the tea party wing was being unrealistic in its expectations, Boehner emphatically replied, “Absolutely, they’re not realistic!” Our system of government is not about Hail Mary passes,” Boehner said. “It’s the Woody Hayes school of football: three yards and a cloud of dust, three yards and a cloud of dust. It’s a slow methodical process.”
According to John Bonehead, it takes maybe a century or more to effect “change” even though Obama did it on his first day. What if our President was Hitler, and he ordered all newborn females to be gassed? And what if they didn’t have the votes to overturn his veto,—John Boehner would insist that “these things take time.”
Saving little babies from being cut up and sold to the highest bidder is going to get a ‘committee’ from John. (Right.)
So, what happened behind closed doors that made the Speaker quit, right in the middle of the great Pope orgy? It seems…it’s desperate times for the GOP. 245 days of talking about the Pope and his greenhouse little mini mouse van should keep everyone NOT thinking about the election. Our President, with the help of John Boehner, just shoved down the American throat: climate change, higher taxes, and the flooding of millions of immigrants with a no borders world. I’m sure it only fueled the fires of those dirty American jackasses out there who want to get back at him.
What’s next to distract us from giving airtime to those dirty animals…Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, or Ben Carson? Jeb Bush?
Jeb Bush came out on FOX to tell the world that those polls that show he’s still losing big time in the race, really don’t matter at all. Once American sees how his plans will work to take the country to a better place, they’ll vote for him. He’s SURE of it. And I can’t tell you what else he said because..I fell asleep.
He does that to me…something about those catatonic eye glasses, that makes me think of the last guy who was trying to sell me funeral insurance in my living room.
What’s next to distract us from giving airtime to those dirty animals…Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson?
How about…a visit from aliens? That might take up at least six months. They could even have the Pope meet them at the United Nations, and make them global citizens. The aliens might even give John another good cry. And who’s not up for that?
At the Republican conference on C-Span this weekend, I heard only one candidate take up the subject of globalization. Globalization is the code word for crony capitalism, and the final Asian trade agreement is being put into place by Obama. Bernie Sanders is right on this one point: How could it possibly do any of the little nobodies any good?
It was Carly Fiorina who talked about it. The one person you won’t hear talk about it is Jeb Bush.
The truth is, ever since Ronald Reagan left office, every President that has followed has stuck to the crony capitalism song. No matter how the two parties differ on abortion, religion, NSA, war, control…etc, the one thing they carry out to the letter is America’s international trade for multinationals. The big corporations. The big money. Obama, the Bushes, the Clinton’s, it doesn’t matter.
They all sent the fear of how terrible the world would be if we became isolationists, never explaining of course what the fear would be. Even Rush Limbaugh had a part in this, because for years he praised Wal-Mart as a place, due to “free trade,” where you could get your goods cheap. Nobodies rejoice!
Yes, the rich could still shop at Neiman Marcus, but the poor…well they could just get everything they wanted at Wal Mart. And since it wasn’t unionized, Rush thought it was great.
And yet, we have seen what the big multinational companies, which line our cities and towns from one end of the country to the other has done to American.
So, I thought this video was at least worth watching. What really is happening in the world with all this “free trade” and globalization, and crony capitalism? Does anybody really know? How much damage has it done to the ordinary citizen?
And its true…the rich, in every country, have most of the money. Billionaires are now in great numbers.
In the meantime, as the American worker dies, the Clinton’s, the Bushes, the Obama’s, are all putting OUR money into helping other people in other countries start their own local businesses.
Gee…thanks a lot guys.
I’m not sure I have as much faith as this lady…she thinks if everyone knew what was really going on they could change it…but the video made me think…and Nobody Thinks the subject of globalization should be asked of all Presidential candidates.
It’s one of the reason I like Donald Trump. America needs to manufacture…and more local control over it’s own decisions. Without jobs, the country will collapse sooner rather than later, and they know it, or why else is Obama holding troop training on American soil?
And now Obama is pushing for the Asian trade pact…and he swears it’s for the little guy:
Nike was a curious choice for the president’s speech, given criticism of its labor practices over the years.
But the company pledged Friday to create up to 10,000 jobs in the U.S. over the next decade with its manufacturing partners if Congress gives Obama “fast-track” trade negotiating authority that ultimately leads to the 12-country Trans-Pacific trade deal.
Obama argued that the current system doesn’t benefit American workers, particularly those in the small businesses that he said create two out of every three jobs in the U.S. He said those businesses need easier access to the fast-growing Asian markets.
He also said our health insurance would go down, and we could keep our doctors. And if you are a little guy, with a small business, you don’t stand a chance against the big multinational companies.
In the meantime, Zuckerface wants every single person on the planet to be hooked up to Facebook. That’s his goal….so far, he only has 1.6 billion.
Whose going to ‘buy’ all these computers?
The good old…Mr. and Mrs….USA.
I was GOING to try to find an uplifting story for today…what with all the continuing bad news and all..you know, I was lectured today by a lady friend who just couldn’t stand people who didn’t have a cheery attitude about life. (NO doubt trying to tell me something)
So I was determined to find a story of good will to write about…one where the nobody wins… and I remembered that I read about a woman and her twin, who survived the Nazi, Dr. Mengele’s horrible experiments done on her, when she was a small child, and I thought: That’s it! I’ll write about that. What a inspiration!
And then I couldn’t find the story. If you saw my office, you’d know why.
Tonight, on the news, some black man from Kansas City, “just lost it” and started a speed chase down 50 miles of St. Louis highway, in which he just started shooting people, and cars, and cops. They finally caught him just up the street from my house.
Well, not much inspiring there.
And then, the worst news, I thought, for the area..a city just across the river from Ferguson, is going to die a slow and bitter death:
United States Steel Corp said it would consolidate its North American flat-rolled operations and temporarily idle its operations at Granite City, Illinois, citing weak demand and falling steel prices.
The company is issuing notices to 2,080 workers at its Granite City Works facility in Illinois.
“Global influences in the market like reduced steel prices, unfair trade, imports and fluctuating oil prices continue to have an impact on the business,” the company said.
A stronger dollar has made imports cheaper and steel from China has been flooding the U.S. market in the past few quarters, hurting prices and leading to job cuts and plant closures at a number of steel producers in the United States.
U.S. Steel announced the permanent closure of its Granite City Works coke-making facility in January and cut 176 jobs.
That is a LOT of jobs for that small town. And this is happening all over the country, and the stocks market soars.
This is exactly what only Donald Trump is talking about. Our politicians have done irrefutable damage to us all, with their ‘globalization’ schemes, and poor trade agreements, and it’s been going on for decades. BOTH parties are in on it.
So, maybe by next week I’ll find that uplifting story, in which a nobody little girl, fought hard and lived through the atrocities of Auschwitz.
Or maybe I should just stop watching the news….
“Where ignorance is bliss, tis’ folly to be wise.”
This week, we have the subject of two separations: Rupert Murdoch VS Burger King.
Hey! I didn’t even know (or care) about Rupert Murdoch’s love life, but there it was in Vanity Fair: Rupert’s young Chinese wife of 14 years, Wendi, had been having sexual affairs with other men—- and not just any men. Tony Blair, Google’s Eric Schmidt, and co-founder of MySpace, Chris DeWolfe. (How she missed Bill Clinton is anybody’s guess.)
Get the feeling she likes to feel connected?
Really, what’s a billionaire mogul to do? His mother tried to warn him to stay with his last wife, who wanted him to retire, but Wendi saw her way to riches, and Rupert saw his way INTO China, and with the help of science, he was off to another marriage…his third.
It’s not the shock that a young women took advantage of an older man’s riches, it’s that she had to bed the one man Rupert had put into power, Mr. Blair, and she did it in their own house…and yacht…and who knows where else? Probably even in the Tower of London!
Rupert had raised LOADS of money for Tony, who really doesn’t need more either. But in the hall of fame gold-diggers, Wendi choose carefully: ALL these men …were powerful, rich, and mostly married.
And then we have the divorce of Burger King and its money, from Obama. Yes, Burger King is taking its big Whoppers and moving its headquarters to Canada where it will pay less taxes.
Obama has called this exodus of major American companies to other countries…unpatriotic!
After all…Walgreens wanted to move, and stopped cold after hearing those words, so, should we all be mad that Burger King is NOT going to pay its fair share, and you and I will have to fork out even more? Is it really their fault?
Who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week? (No, it’s not Al Sharpton, I’m sick to death of him.)
Is it Rupert Murdoch, who failed to see that he was marrying a gold-digger? Rumors are he lost over $1.7 billion. Wendi got him into buying MySpace, which he paid $545 million and sold for $35 million. Uh….not exactly what you would expect a smart man to do.
And even though she signed a pre-nup, she got the Rockefeller triplex on Fifth Avenue ($70 million), the house in Beijing ($40 million), $14 million for each year she was married, jewelry and half of their art collection.
Or does the trophy go to Burger King, who just couldn’t stand to keep paying Obama’s high taxes?
It’s obvious isn’t it?
What a man will do for a pretty face, and a busty oriental beauty.
We really can’t blame Burger King for wanting to desert America. That fault goes to our past Presidents (of BOTH parties) who threw America out the window with the bath water when they dreamed up globalization.
Burger King doesn’t need us anymore…it’s in every country in the world now, and its the American people who continue to lose.
As for the REAL loser of the week…Al Sharpton……go ahead……fill in the blank………………………………………
Once of the things I tell myself, whenever I hear Dick Cheney or Obama saying that we will CERTAINLY be attacked again–I say, “Good thing Monsanto has its world headquarters here! No one would DARE bomb the world center of genetically modified crops! “
I just read that Monsanto wants to take its world headquarters from St. Louis to Switzerland, to avoid paying U.S. taxes. The deal didn’t go through, but it’s only a matter of time.
Today, by sheer coincidence, I was reading about just how many people who work for Monsanto, are big on the “control the food supply” band wagon and work for the government.
Michael Taylor: The number two at the FDA was a former attorney to Monsanto, and later a Monsanto Vice-President for Public Policy. Obama picked him to be his food Czar.
Christine Lewis Taylor, his wife: Is a long time employee of the food and Drug Administration and is promoting that nutrients are toxins and that nutrients should be defined as toxins to justify the imposition of limits on the quantity of essential nutrients that people can consume.
Margaret Hamburg: Was appointed by Obama to head the Food and Drug Administration and is on the board of directors at Trust for American’s Health and the Rockefeller Foundation, which has spent a fortune promoting genetically modified food.
Rosa DeLauro: Introduced HR 875 (US Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009) She was a Democratic Congresswoman from the Skull and Bones of New Haven, CT, at Yale University, and has a master’s degree from the London School of Economics.
In the meantime, while we are all getting to realize the ‘food’ on our grocery shelves is filled with things that aren’t exactly good for us..the real reason for Monsanto to take over the world’s food supply is..
You guessed it: money.
I don’t know WHAT fool in the Patent Office gave the okay for “genes” to be patented and owned, but you can bet he is living the high life somewhere.
Monsanto leaving the United States will not upset any congressman. It’s the new ‘globalization’, but this globalization…to the regular citizen: sucks. I much preferred Americanization.
Is it any wonder they want the old people to die off? I’m not against modified crops, but what is atrocious, it the dictatorial monopoly of Monsanto, given to them by our government.
I suppose I should look at it from the other point of view: We’ll have fewer jobs–we might become the second Detroit–but Muhammad is going to care less about us. And even if Monsanto DOES leave, it will still have the same control over every single farmer in the world, thanks to the elites.
I hope a giant ebola spider jumps off their breakfast orange.
