"Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid"  -John Wayne

 

BOYCOTT ISRAEL AND GO TO PRISON FOR 20 YEARS

 

One onerous pending piece of federal legislation that is now in the Senate would set a new standard for total dominance by Israeli on the American people. It would criminalize any U.S. citizen “engaged in interstate or foreign commerce” who supports a boycott of Israel, or who even goes about “requesting the furnishing of information” regarding it, with penalties enforced through amendments of two existing laws, the Export Administration Act of 1979 and the Export-Import Act of 1945, that include potential fines of up to $1 million and up to 20 years in prison.

 

Notice that you don't have to actually boycott Israel, or even support a boycott in any way. You can merely innocently ask about a boycott, and you go to jail for 20 years. Plus the million dollar fine of course. The world is getting sick of Israel, and investment boycotts are increasing everywhere.

 

FAKE OPIOID CRISIS

 

First of all, the appropriate term is "opiate crisis", not "opioid". The dictionary defines opioid as "an opium like compound that binds to one or more of the three opioid receptors of the body." That doesn't make much sense does it? The purpose of this  war on opiates has nothing to do with helping addicts in any way. IT IS ABOUT CONTROL AS ALWAYS. Never let a good crisis go to waste. Now Congress is telling doctors how to practice medicine. Now people are getting charged with felonies for possessing a few pills. Mere possession used to be a misdemeanor. The whole point is to create a police state, and lock as many people up as they can for as long as possible. Rehabilitation does NOT work. It is a waste of time, effort and money. They are very, very expensive. The very best centers still have an 80% failure rate. For 137 years all drugs were legal, including opium, mophine, heroin, cocaine, amphetamine and other psychoactive drugs. America has 5% of the world population, but 25% of the world prison inmates. This does not include the endless millions on parole and probation- only those actually locked up. WE ARE THE WORLD POLICE STATE. We make Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, and Myranmar look like havens of freedom!

 

PORTUGAL 3 IN A MILLION VS WEST VIRGINIA 415 IN A MILLION

In 2001 Portugal legalized the possession of all drugs. The Czech Republic did the same thing recently. It is now a ticketed civil violation, with possible sanctions (e.g. loss of welfare, fines, loss of passport, etc.) Every year there are only 3 in a million drug overdose deaths in Portugal. 3 in a million is the same as nothing. Every year in West Virginia there are 415 drug overdose deaths. Now, that’s an epidemic. Drug use has FALLEN in Portugal after drug legalization. Why? There is no more false glamour, or allure of forbidden pleasures, or flaunting the law, or rebelling against society, or getting back at your parents. They also had one of the  highest needle caused HIV infections in Europe. That is down 95%. Let’s be honest...who really cares if a self destructive, suicidal drug addict kills themselves? Why all this false compassion for people who pushed the self destruct button long ago? Well, what if a loved one of yours died of a drug overdose? They got what they wanted. Admit it. No tears there. No different from people who drink themselves to death. Addiction is both a sickness and a CHOICE. Don’t believe that they don’t have a choice in the matter, because they do. All these crocodile tears for drug addicts is misplaced compassion.

Legalizing all drugs for all adults would put an end to the drug problem overnight. It would also put all drug dealers out of business in the morning. The government causes all these deaths with their infamous War on Drugs. Since Nixon declared the War on Drugs in 1971 (46 years ago), drug use has skyrocketed. Drug addiction has skyrocketed. Drug overdose deaths have skyrocketed. Needle caused HIV has skyrocketed. Our incarceration rate has skyrocketed. The Constitution and Bill of Rights have been trashed. The War on Drugs is not about drugs- it's about control. The War on Drugs is about creating a totalitarian police state. Again, this country was a pretty reasonable place to live in until about 1970. That's when everything really, seriously started to go to hell on a greased slide. After 1970 you could really see America turn into a police state.

THE GOVERNMENT STARTED THE CALIFORNIA FIRES WITH LASERS

In early October in northern California 42 people died, over 8,400 structures burned, and there were over $1 billion in damages due to military DEW lasers. Dozens more people are missing and dead. Why would the government kill people and destroy over eight thousand homes and businesses? What is the motive? We now have proof this was done with airborne Direct Energy Weapon military lasers. Over 160,000 acres (250 sq. mi.) were destroyed, including valuable wineries. This included Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. The government now has 500 trillion watt lasers. We don't know how powerful the ones are that were used here by large airplanes.  Temperatures in normal home fires only reach about 1,100 degrees F. These fires  reached over 2,800 degrees, and destroyed steel, glass, rubber, granite, and  stone walls. That is, MELTED steel and glass, rubber, granite and stone. Go to this  website to see real videos of the blue DEW laser beams being shot down from airplanes.

WE ARE DROWNING IN DEBT

 

We are absolutely awash in debt. Every kind of debt you can think of. All of these debts will get paid, either by the buyer or the seller. You will pay this debt in the form of the greatest depression the world has ever seen. Remember the entire GNP of America is down to only about $14 trillion. Our real national unfunded debt is over $200 trillion now. Not the mere $20 million the media touts. On top of this the derivatives market is about to implode. The bond market is about to crash. The stock markets are about to collapse. The U.S. dollar is failing, and will no longer be the world reserve currency. Both commercial and residential real estate are abour to burst their bubbles. Social In-security was bankrupt decades ago. All private, government, and union pensions were also bankrupt decades ago. The only answer to this is total economic disaster and the collapse of our society. Nothing less. No hope at all. Hope is for dopes, and the last refuge of fools.

  • Mortgage debt surged 4.2% year-over-year, to $9.19 trillion, still shy of the all-time record of $10 trillion in 2008 before it all collapsed.
  • Student loans surged by 6.25% year-over-year to a record of $1.36 trillion.
  • Credit card debt surged 8% to $810 billion.
  • “Other” surged 5.4% to $390 billion.
  • And auto loans surged 6.1% to a record $1.21 trillion.

USED CARS SELLING LIKE HOTCAKES

 

People can no longer afford new cars. For years the sheeple have been buying cars they simply cannot afford. All that crap is over. New car sales are in the toilet and dealers are going out of business every day. (Thanks to wolfstreet for the fine charts.)


NEW CAR SALES DOWN THE TOILET



LOOK CLOSELY, PAY ATTENTION, AND YOU CAN SEE TOMORROW

 

Great events cast their shadows before them. California home prices are finally collapsing. This collapse will spread east. You will see the median U.S. home sell for about $100,000, instead of the current $250,000. The normal family simply cannot even begin to afford a quarter million dollar home. The normal family is now lucky to pay apartment rent in an average area. Like Europe, most Americans will soon be living in a small crappy apartment.

 

DOLLAR DISASTER STRAIGHT AHEAD

 

As usual, things were going along pretty good (except for the Vietnam war) until about 1970. We were still basically a free, happy, affluent country. After that time things started going totally to Hell in America. The dollar is now worth about 3 cents after the Zionist Federal Reserve was formed in 1913, 104 years ago. The inflation in the last 47 years is simply insane. Remember Nixon closed the gold and silver window in1965.  Look at the 352 year inflation chart below. Inflation is a modern development, only known very recently. Now it is exponential.



ALL CASH WILL BE BANNED



ALL CYBER CURRENCIES ARE FRAUDS

 

“We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper, representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people”

-          Daniel Webster / Senate speech, 1833

 

Why do we keep talking about Bitcoin (BTC) and the other cybers? Because they are a world-wide mania that makes tulip bulbs look valuable. That's why. BTC is up 600% this year, but the sheeple can't see that in itself defines a bubble. Sweden and other countries have already embraced it. All digital transactions with no cash will give the government complete control over your life. It’s probable the CIA invented Bitcoin as a big step to cashlessness. Now Doug Casey (who was never one of us) has jumped on the cyber  bandwagon. He says Bitcoin is going to $50,000 and they are a great alternative to paper money. Obviously old Doug has serious dementia because he's a long time libertarian. Jeff Berwick showed his true colors when he pushed Bitcoin. Ron Paul refuses to expose them as frauds. The list goes on. However, Satan’s brother Jamie Dimon (CEO of JPM) said all cybers are frauds, and only stupid people invest in them. Remember Jamie is the head of the bank that owns over 500 million ounces of silver. That makes him "one of us" in a rather ironic and evil way. Cybercurrencies are mere computer entries with absolutely no value in any way, shape or form. Hundreds of millions of people around the world are paying huge money for COMPUTER ENTRIES!!!!!!!! This is a sick world we live in folks. All these morons are going to lose their life savings when they cyber crash and burn. When bubbles like this burst YOU CANNOT EXIT. You cannot get out of your position. You’re stuck. You helplessly watch your life savings vaporize with no escape.

 

NOVEMBER 9 NEWSFLASH- BITCOIN JUST CRASHED $2,000!!!

November 9 Newsflash...Bitcoin dropped $2,000 in one week. It may keep crashing, too. Don't say we haven't warned you for years now. Everyone who owned Bitcoin watched helpless as their life savings evaporated in front of their faces. You cannot exit during a crash; you're stuck. The whole motive here is something for nothing. People who are too lazy to work, and too scared to steal.

 

AMERICA HAS 5% OF THE WORLD POPULATION, BUT THE MOST DEBT




JIMMY KIMMEL AND THE LIBERALS HATE THE BILL OF RIGHTS


WHY AMERICANS ARE SO SICKLY

Here are the top sources of calories for Americans. Notice there are no whole grains, beans or legumes, green or yellow vegetables, or even fruit listed at all. The ideal diet is 50% whole grains, beans and legumes, green and yellow vegetables, seafood (optional) local fruits, and good soups and salads. This is right from Business Insider, and they  know the markets very well:

 

white flour desserts (e.g. cakes, cookies, etc.)

yeasted white bread

chicken

sodas

pizza

alcohol

white pasta

tortillas/burritos/tacos

beef

milk

fried white potatoes

hamburgers

milk desserts (i.e. ice cream)

cheese

sugared refined cold cereal

sausage and bacon

potato chips

candy

eggs

white rice

quickbreads (waffles, pancakes, etc.)

coldcuts

 

Americans eat twice the calories they need, twice the protein they need, eight times the fat they need, only 1% whole grains, and 160 pounds of sugars every year. Now they are swilling down cancer causing sucralose instead of regular sugars. Overfed and undernourished. The above is why we have stratospheric rates of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer's, and every other disease known to man.

 

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE BUBBLE IS BURSTING


THIS WILL BE A WORLDWIDE DEBT COLLAPSE

 

This is a six country chart showing debt far, far exceeds the domestic production.  The entire world is over their heads in debt.


The Labor Participation rate is down from 67% in 1999 to 62% currently. 38% are doing nothing but sitting at home watching Jerry Springer. The LP rate simply means how many able bodied people are actually employed. The problem with the US labor statistics is that it conveniently disregards the 95.4 million people, a record level, who are able to work but are not working. Over 95 million able bodied people sitting on their dead rear ends, not working. That is over ONE THIRD of people who could be productive and contributing to society. The total US labor force capable of working is 256 million. Of those, only 161 million are actually working or actively looking for a job.

 

So, the 95.4 million not working, many of which have given up looking for a job, represent 38% of the all those capable of working. With fewer people working, and with average workers’ real pay having declined since 1975, it is hard to understand that people in the US are feeling so optimistic. That’s right, real wages have fallen for almost 50 years now. Every day we are closer to a third world welfare backwater police state.  History proves conclusively that all democratic countries fail after about 200 years. 1976 marked that 200 year period. Nothing can stop the total collapse of this once great country.

REAL WAGES ARE DOWN 50% IN 50 YEARS


ONLY CONTRARIANS WILL SURVIVE

 

Take just a minute to Google, “only contrarians will survive”.  You’ll find an excellent article by Egon von Greyerz.  This is the source of some of these charts. This planet was never meant to hold over 7.6 billion people. We should only have a HALF BILLION.

The Chinese alone comprise 18% of the world, but have dropped their reproduction rate to 1.6 per woman. You need a rate of 2.1 to maintain your numbers. They did this by very strict laws. China and India alone comprise 2.5 billion- or ONE THIRD OF THE world population. The Indians are still breeding like cockroaches. The African countries out-breed everyone else by a country mile. Niger, for example is 6.6!!! If all the overbreeding countries were reduced 94% in population it would be the best thing that ever happened  to them. This is what they need.   The Black Plague killed off about 40% of the world population. At least half of the population is going to get killed off by starvation, nuclear war, forced lowered birth rates, and military caused biowarfare. We need to get rid of 94% of the current population. We should have a half billion people on this planet, not 7.6 billion. Earth would be a paradise with a half billion people.  Contrarians will survive though. Be a contrarian. Be prepared. We’ve covered this repeatedly in the rant. If you live in a city or crowded suburb then move. Be ready for whatever is ahead of us.

 

 

 

DIANE FEINSTEIN AND HER TRIBE WANT TO BAN ALL GUNS

 

Every one of the many Jewish Congress men and women vote anti-gun all the time every time. That's a fact. Here is Diane's latest anti-gun bill. Remember "assault" weapons are fully automatic. You need both a BATF dealers license, and a Class 3 license to own one. Very, very few people have both of these, and own a fully automatic rifle. The media constantly calls semi-automatic rifles "assault weapons". You will not be able to sell or give a gun to anyone for any reason without BATF paperwork. When you die, you cannot leave your guns to family members without BATF paperwork. Nearly every Democrat in Congress will vote for this bill. One of the pillars of Marxist, Socialism, and Communism is to ban all guns, except for the police and military. The Second Amendment is meant to protect you from the government. That is the real purpose.

 

Key provisions

  • Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Other provisions:

  • Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.
  • Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.
  • Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.
  • Bans bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.

 

That's it for November. See you in December. Prepare for what is ahead. Be ready. Be prepared in every way possible.
