Jul 16, 2018 - Illegal Immigration Replaced
In past blog posts, I explained how illegal immigration is a
form of slave labor. It seems powerful people explained this to former President
George W. Bush, but didn't tell him not to repeat it in public and that
Americans no longer pick cotton by hand. As a result, Bush said
this during a speech earlier this year:
are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do. Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there
are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do
that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”
Bush failed to note that millionaires pay only $10 an hour
with no benefits for these tough jobs, yet most field workers are US citizens or
green card holders. Illegals are hired to hold down wages and deter unions and
strikes. If they would pay $20 an hour, plenty of Americans would show up to
work. Most Americans don't know that millions of
white Americans once picked cotton by hand, and picked more than Blacks or
Jul 15, 2018 - Real Organized Crime
Corporate television teaches us that organized crime are local
rackets run by Italians. In reality, the world's most powerful people
routinely colluded to profit from illegal activities. For example, in 1967 Israel
invaded and occupied Syria's Golan Heights. Most of the native people fled or
were expelled and Israelis moved in. In 1981, Israel officially annexed the
Golan Heights over the objection of the UN and USA, and no nation recognizes
this land grab.
For the past several years, lots
of oil has been stolen by Genie Oil from under the Golan Heights with
no compensation or royalties paid to Syria. And remember that Israel had plans
to seize another 25 miles (40km) of southern Syria as a security zone until
Russia thwarted that idea. (see my Jan. 29, 2018 blog post) Have a peek at who
is paid to overcome political objections and keep this news out of
the UN and our corporate media:

Jul 9, 2018 - Please Don't Call an Ambulance!
As a follow up to previous blog posts about America's
dysfunctional for-profit health care system, read:
Most ambulance rides in the USA are
over $1000, some are twice that amount, and bills of over $8000 are not
uncommon. At one time, some cities provided ambulance
rides as a free public service, or hospitals provided them for free to boost
business. I suspect more than 90% of Americans would agree that their state or
federal government should limit ambulance bills to perhaps $500. If this makes
companies unprofitable, the government would need a subsidy scheme. The
biggest problem for ambulance companies are poor people without insurance, which
is why they boost fees for paying customers. The government could pay their $500
if they submit a financial form claiming poverty.
Once the government must pay some of
the cost, it will end waste, like when highly paid fire department paramedics
show up at the scene to provide care, but don't transport to a hospital because
an ambulance is called too. So the patient is double billed, which pleases the
ambulance company and the paramedics who prefer to return to their fire station
quickly to resume their movie. In many cases, people with minor problems in
rural areas could be transported to a local urgent care facility, but are driven to a
hospital ER over an hour away because of a wasteful policy that ambulances only
transport to hospital ERs.
You don't get a bill when the fire
department shows up for a fire, so why when they show up to save a life? In many
cases, an ambulance is called because someone is mugged or hit by a car. Why
should a victim get billed? In other cases, an ambulance is called for someone
who has a minor injury or dizzy spell, but the ambulance employees insist that
hospital care is required so they get paid for showing up. Governments can
easily control the ambulance racket because they control 911 dispatches, so can
negotiate prices and rules for ambulances they dispatch.
Jul 5, 2018 - Tyrant Assad?
Did you know the "evil" leader of Syria lived in
London for several years where he studied to become an eye doctor? Did you know
he speaks English? This information is allowed on American corporate
media, nor on youtube. Thanks to the great Ron Unz, you can watch
Syria's President Assad answer questions in English about the fighting in his
nation and American politics.
Jul 4, 2018 - NBC Hires News Faker
In my last post, I mentioned the fake news that suddenly
appeared to undermine President Trump's peace effort with North Korea. I now
learn the sole source of this "news" is Ken Dilanian, the former
national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times. He was
fired for having a “collaborative relationship” with the CIA. Ken
Dilanian was publicly fired from a major newspaper for inventing fake news in collaboration
with the CIA, yet was hired by NBC News! Now NBC allows him to write national
security articles citing unnamed intelligence sources! The worst part is that
dozens of other corporate news organizations cite his NBC stories. If they insist
on repeating fake news, they should print this disclaimer at the beginning of
This writer was fired by the Los Angeles Times for producing fake news
in secret cooperation with the CIA.
Jul 2, 2018 - Peace Lover Trump?
It was nice to see Trump’s sudden return to sanity by
holding talks with North Korea. I never understood why he accepted psychopaths
like Bolton into his office. One could be cynical (or realistic) and
realize that Zionists don’t give a damn about Korea, Iran is their target.
Trump can secure peacenik creds and free up forces to focus on Iran. Others note
that South Korea’s president walked crossed the DMZ to hug North Korea's leader, and probably
told Trump that he can do this with or without him. The neocons realized they
need to give peace a chance or get dropped from the game.
It’s a puzzle, but so far it's good news, especially
since it showed that never-Trumpers prefer world war rather than congratulating
Trump for peace. We didn’t give up anything. I’ve taken part in these war
games. South Korean land and airspace is so crowded that war games there are unrealistic and stupid.
Our military is better off
practicing elsewhere. The Deep State is in
shock and counterattacked. Trump's peace effort was widely denounced by
media, and fake news has just appeared from "anonymous intelligence
sources" that North Korea is suddenly increasing production of nuclear
Hopefully, Trump will push ahead and learn that he can pull
thousands of non-combat GIs out of South Korea to save a couple billion dollars
a year and actually improve our combat readiness in Korea! Don't fall for lies
that keeping troops in Korea saves the USA money because of contributions from
South Korea. It costs a lot more money to maintain equipment and soldiers on the
other side of the world, and to pay GIs thousands of dollars a month to live off
base. South Korea does not pay any of these costs. Its
contributions are paying land rent and base construction payments to South Koreans and
bogus contributions like forgiving import fees, income taxes, and on-base sales taxes for American GIs.
G2mil published these detailed
proposals to cut military fat in Korea over the past few years:
Pull Aircraft and
Airmen Out of Osan - now in a kill zone
Tomorrow - it commands nothing
Cut Army Fat in
Korea - 8th Army and Daegu
Withdraw from DMZ
Bases - as ordered
Jul 1, 2018 - Sell!
I once traded stocks. It was fun and I made some easy money,
but the events of 2008 shook my faith in the system. It has become a
casino run by computers, so great companies with solid profits can lose half
their value in a few weeks. The collapse pattern starts when overhyped companies
that never made a profit quickly lose value, as they should. As speculative
investors see their balance sheet fall and need cash to meet margin
calls, they sell their solid stocks to book profits so they don't have to sell and book
losses from their speculative ones. Index funds are huge, so when investors sell
shares all stocks get sold, even the healthy, profitable ones. Other funds and investors decide to reduce
their holdings and begin to sell all stocks, and the downward momentum
Speculative stocks aren't just small corporations. For
example, since it went public eight years ago, Tesla's
share price has risen nearly 2000 percent and the company is still unprofitable!
CEO Elon Musk said he expects Tesla to turn a profit in the third
and fourth quarters of 2018. Tesla's stock market value is $56.7 billion,
surpassing Ford's market value of $43.2 billion and General Motors' value of
$55.5 billion. This is despite the fact that Ford and GM sell several times the
number of cars Tesla does, and have consistently delivered profits over the last
several quarters. This means that if Tesla helps crash the market, Ford and GMs
stocks will fall too!
Most agree the current market is due a pullback. The
S&P 500 value remains the same as the beginning of this year. This is the same
pattern as 2008 and I've been looking for
a sell signal, which should occur when bitcoin and it's related crypto
scams unravel. These imaginary coins are quickly losing value and may
soon become worthless, wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in
This is a sign of a pending downturn, and Tesla may report another unprofitable
quarter in August. If I had stocks, I'd sell all and sit on cash the rest of
