MAD Thought For The Day

Today, there is no instrument in international law that prevents the possibility of mutually assured destruction. Putin has been sending out warnings for over 10 years – all of which fell on deaf ears.

Who will push the button first?

You can read the rest and watch Putin's speech @

I don't know who will push the button first, but when it happens it will be because We The People of the United States did not prevent it.

Dilbert Says "Resist The Bullies"

Here is some great analysis and advice from Scott Adams, the creator of "Dilbert":

I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms.

If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.

If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.

if you speak of Trump at work you could get fired.

On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood.

We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. The media downplays it.

We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online. You don’t hear much about that.

Yesterday, by no coincidence, Huffington Post, Salon, and Daily Kos all published similar-sounding hit pieces on me, presumably to lower my influence. (That reason, plus jealousy, are the only reasons writers write about other writers.)

Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind the bleachers and beat him up. No one on Clinton’s side disavowed that call to violence because, I assume, they consider it justified hyperbole. 

Team Clinton has succeeded in perpetuating one of the greatest evils I have seen in my lifetime.

$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Yes, yes, I realize Trump supporters say bad things about Clinton supporters too. I don’t defend the bad apples on either side. I’ll just point out that Trump’s message is about uniting all Americans under one flag. The Clinton message is that some Americans are good people and the other 40% are some form of deplorables, deserving of shame, vandalism, punishing taxation, and violence. She has literally turned Americans on each other. It is hard for me to imagine a worse thing for a presidential candidate to do.

I’ll say that again. 

As far as I can tell, the worst thing a presidential candidate can do is turn Americans against each other. Clinton is doing that, intentionally.


& & & & & & & &

I don’t defend Trump’s personal life. Neither Trump nor Clinton are role models for our children. Let’s call that a tie, at worst.

And we can expect a LOT more bullying if she wins.

Hillary intends to rip the US apart and hand the remains over to her corporate supporters. If you think otherwise, you are a fool ... or a Clinton supporter.

Executive Orders For Sale ???

Now THIS is something which should put Hillary in jail:

A new revelation buried in the Wikileaks trove of tens of thousands of Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails shows him discussing executive orders in relation to an “idea” a wealthy donor has.

In a leaked email thread between Podesta and Mary Pat Bonner, a “donor adviser” who  gets millions for her elite connections in bringing in donors and for being what The New York Times describes as a “master of making donors happy,” it’s all but admitted that Executive Orders are another pay-for-play item on the corrupt American political menu.

You can and should read the rest @

Thank you, Julian.

If this is true, then isn't it likely Obama ad-Dajjal either ran a similar scheme or somehow benefited from the one Hillary was running?

Trump is right again - Hillary appears to be the most corrupt politician in US history.

Even worse than that, she appears to have almost single-handedly destroyed what used to be a fairly decent, honest system of governance.


Did Hillary Fall Again ???

That's a nasty gash! Did she fall down again?

Don't elect another Reagan; i.e., a sick old person who sleeps while her "supporters" run the government.

Thought For The Day

Whether it be Communist Russia, Nazi Germany or Fascist America, once the people have been successfully conditioned to allow Big Brother to dictate thought, the next step has always been totalitarian rule.

The Reason Trump Ultimately Will Lose

Whether or not Trump wins the 2016 election, his "make America great again" concept is dead on arrival.

Why? Because the banks and corporations don't want us to be "great again".

Evidence of this is everywhere. Here is but one example:

When a Chinese home-appliance company announced a plan in May to become the largest shareholder in one of Germany’s most advanced robot manufacturers, the backlash was immediate.

German politicians and European officials denounced Midea Group Co.’s offer for Frankfurt-listed Kuka AG, whose robotic arms assemble Airbus jets and Audi sedans. In a rare public appeal for alternative acquirers, Germany’s economy minister argued that Kuka’s automation technology needed to stay out of Chinese hands.

And yet in two months, Midea pulled it off. Thanks to a combination of political courtship, guarantees on jobs and security, and support from influential customers like Daimler AG Chief Executive Officer Dieter Zetsche, Midea overcame knee-jerk opposition to the deal. By July the appliance maker had secured an 86 percent stake, valuing Kuka at 4.6 billion euros ($5 billion).

The experience showed how some Chinese firms are learning to soothe misgivings about the country’s record $207 billion overseas buying spree. While Sinophobia isn’t yet a thing of the past and practices among Chinese buyers vary widely, merger-and-acquisition professionals say a new generation of savvy dealmakers is starting to emerge from the world’s second-largest economy.

As they say, money talks and bullshit walks. When the Chinese (or anyone else with big money) comes to the table, "outdated" concepts like patriotism, national security, and self-sufficiency are thrown out the window. It's the same in the US as it is in the EU.

Banks and corporations will continue to rule the world, and nothing Trump or anyone else can do will stop them. They're far more powerful than nation states now, and ultimately they are going to get what they want - global dominion.

Three Massive Mergers

How long until the entire world is run by just one giant, evil corporation?

You probably learned in high school that monopolies are bad for consumers; they eliminate the field of competition in the marketplace, leaving people with fewer options and higher prices. Mega-mergers in the food and energy markets are allowing a handful of corporations to dominate market sectors. Their market dominance means that when it comes to influencing public policy, politically powerful companies call the shots. As Elizabeth Warren said in a speech recently, competition is dying -- and the accompanying consolidation in sector after sector is a threat to our democracy.

Beyond the corporate quest for market dominance, there is another reason these mergers keep coming at everyone else's expense: the deals make big money for the powerful banks that wield enormous power over our democracy. One such bank is Credit Suisse.

Here are the three most valuable mergers happening this year: U.S.-based Monsanto is being bought by German corporation Bayer for $64.5 billion; ChemChina is acquiring Swiss seed and pesticide company Syngenta for $46.7 billion; and the Canadian pipeline company Enbridge is attempting to purchase Houston-based Spectra for $43.1 billion.

There is one thing these deals in the works have in common: they are all being advised by Credit Suisse. And that consultation comes at a hefty price: Enbridge and Spectra are expected to pay banks nearly $100 million in advisory fees alone. For the Monsanto-Bayer merger, fees could top $200 million.

Note well that both Elizabeth Warren AND Donald Trump have said such mergers are a threat to our democracy. You can expect many more such mega-mergers after TPP, TTIP, TISA, and similar "trade deals" conquer the Western world.

By the way, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America will profit handsomely from the AT&T - Time Warner merger. You can read about it here:


Welcome to the market state, where you can be all that you can be ... as long as you bow down to your bankgangster/corporate overlords.
