Driving Nails In Our Coffin

Upload PDF Version

Every day that goes by where citizens allow the coverup the of most sinister crime crime in the history of the world to to be covered up and dismissed we are putting nails in the coffin of our way of life and perhaps the country as a whole. The media is already starting to shelve the story. Why? The same organization which wants the crime covered up owns the media. What do you expect the media to do?   This is what the situation appears from my fantasy free vantage point.

The whole Epstein episode has been in the planning for a long time. The appearance is that Donald Trump, hired William Barr as attorney general for the express purpose of making sure the case doesn’t go far enough to damage any of the multitude of the world’s elite who visited his Island.

So, what does Trump get out of it? Probably as long as the heat on them dies down, the elite will call off the media attack dogs and stop trying to sabotage the Trump presidency. They may even support his re election now. Lets watch and see if it doesn’t turn out this way. If the Deep State heat picks up again, then the Trump administration has the option of implicating them.  If the heat on Trump dies down, you can bet that is why.

There was such a comedy of errors in the handling of Jeffrey Epstein in jail that it is completely impossible that he wasn’t set up to be murdered and then of course murdered. The only other thing that could have happened is that it was made sure that he had opportunities to commit suicide should he want to. Another alternative is that the mob in charge convinced Epstein that committing suicide would be in his best interest to commit suicide. However, there was no way he was going to get out of that jail alive or even talk while he had a chance to. Epstein was murdered.

So, Bill Clinton was at the Island twenty seven times. Chances are he did more than play shuffle board, drink fine wine and enjoy the company of old friends. Suppose he did exploit the young girls. What if they grew up, got away and talked? To prevent that, they all may be dead and buried on the island? Are there any plans to dig around on the island and find out. If there are bodies on that island, you can bet there will be no effort to find them. Bill Clinton was just one elite who had the honor of indulging on that island. Certainly they all appreciate Trumps offer. Perhaps now, Trump can join the club.

I remember a while back members of congress insisting that investigations of things are warranted due to the seriousness of a charge. Is there anything not serious about charges being levied in the Epstein case. Are any lawmakers insisting on investigation?

Yes, there are ongoing investigations but all by folks who may have an interest in burying the episode. A panel of ordinary citizens needs to be organized as a means of investigating a crime like this. The same FBI that tried to rig the 2016 election has raided the island. Chances the efforts of the FBI’s effort are more to make sure there is no significant evidence rather than to find any. How about the CIA? Earlier in history the CIA helped orchestrate the assassination of John Kennedy? How much has the CIA changed since then?

The consequences to ordinary citizens from letting anointed people live above the law and commit crimes at will is far greater than folks yet realize. There is no one in government who will put this system to rest. Citizens absolutely must insist on justice. I don’t mean in a small way. I mean an effort at least equal to the antiwar effort during the Vietnam War era.

The kind of Depression the United States is entering is permanent. There will be no free market recovery because the free market system has been replaced with central economic planning. Recessions in a free market system are short and temporary. There is no free market so there will be no recovery. So, once a recession begins an all out depression will occur ensue. Continue reading

I Still believe Epstein Was Murdered

                                                                                                              August 16, 2019

Years ago I was sitting in an 8th grade science class. A message was sent from the office that President Kennedy had been shot. Shortly following the investigation, it was concluded that he was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and that he acted alone. I was 14 years old at the time. Even at that young age I didn’t believe for a second Oswald acted alone. I never believed for a second that Jack Ruby acted alone in murdering Oswald. Continue reading

Conspiracy Theory or Doubting The Veracity of What You Are Told?

Epstein’s body is hardly even cold and those who doubt the veracity of the developing official narrative are already being called conspiracy theorists. Personally, I don’t mind being called a conspiracy theorist. Why? The majority of conspiracy theories turn out to be true. Most that are false are those like the fake moon landing theory, and can be seen to not be true from the beginning. When news comes out, and minds go into the “what is wrong with this picture mode?, the story is generally incomplete or a fabricated lie.

Americans Have Still Not Snapped

Download PDF Version                                                August 8, 2019

These are facts:

Economic policy is theft. Yes, economic policy is theft, It has never been anything else and never will be. So, why do folks treat it as necessary? That is at least a partial mystery. I have explanations but that is for another time and place.

Why is economic policy theft? It has no potential to be anything else. Government makes political decisions, not economic decisions. Political decisions distribute income and wealth to whoever and whatever has massive political power. Economic policy always moves anything of material value from the bottom of the food chain to the top. No matter how virtuous leaders are assumed to be, they are no more virtuous than anyone else. Given that they are guided by self interest, just like the rest of humanity, and that power corrupts, leaders are by the laws of nature always more corrupt than the people they serve.  Economic policy, ostensibly benefits the country at large. Economic policy, especially stimulus, always impoverishes all except those who lobby for it and use government to enrich themselves.

The stock market only goes up due to organized support. Analyst after analyst, on a daily basis cites countless reasons why stocks are overpriced and that a vicious bear market is in the offing. Corrections always fall short of what is typical of any market. Stocks rally on the worst possible news and that is no accident. That doesn’t mean there will never be another bear market. It means that any bear market will occur due to a failure of organized support and not because mom and pop start liquidating.

Organized Crime has taken over the United States economy. 100% of bills which get passed contain layer after layer of skimming operations. I am not counting things like resolutions which have no chance of changing economic outcomes. I have been looking for a bill that is an exception. I haven’t found one. It is the controlling crime syndicate which owns the media and homogenizes public opinion in ways that cause people to support their agendas.

The justifying theory goes something like this. Back in the twentieth century, the mob in New York, forced all of the bakeries to raise the price of baked bread. Since all of the bakeries then charged more than the natural market price, all but a few were were happy with the arrangement. Bakers and mobsters split the difference. Basically the same thing has been done with the financial markets. Prices of stocks have been artificially elevated to the glee of almost everyone who owns some. People who don’t own stocks are encouraged to believe an ever rising stock market is an indication of good things going on in the country. Never mind the fact that they may not be doing so hot themselves. They accept the conventional wisdom that all is well and that their poverty is their own fault. A typical response is to waste money getting another college  degree or do something else that won’t be helpful.

Rising asset prices can positively influence GDP for a while especially now that so many wild cards have been added to to factors that determine its level. GDP grows and so does the disparity between rich and poor. Artificially creating an ever rising stock market is justified by the belief that through human engineering, it can be made to rise forever without even minor corrections. Please, understand that if asset prices could be caused to rise forever without any rhyme or reason, prosperity would actually increase right along with it. The problem is that, that can’t happen, regardless of all the lofty reasons proponents of the system might proclaim. That system of economic growth will fail for the same reasons a chain letter fails to accomplish its goals. Human nature does not allow these things to work.  Briefly, what happens is that corporations stop innovating and do what serves their interests most immediately. They start assisting in the process of artificially elevating asset prices. The whole economy eventually falters and it all comes crashing down.  The stock market will go down but only when organized support can no longer elevate prices independently of genuine economics.

I am frequently accused of not having facts when I write these things. The truth is that I have facts others are not willing to look at. Usually those facts come down to knowing incentives and assuming folks are acting on those incentives. Knowing an incentive is knowing a fact. Ignoring incentives is ignoring facts. Economists as a rule completely disregard incentives. I don’t.

Take a piece of white bread and spray a little water on it. Leave it out for a period of time without looking at it. Are you going to find mold on it or not? Leave it out in your yard. Would you be surprise if an animal ate it over night? Would birds fly down and peck it apart?

Are there human beings in the world who would manage the stock market for their own benefit and take over government so that they could extract money and wealth out of the overall population? For those with enough power and money to do these things, what would stop them? There is the incentive but no counter measure to stop this kind of thing from happening. Yes, an incentive is a fact. Those who ignore incentives are the ones who are operating without facts.

Organized Crime Owns Your Government

Download PDF Version                                                                             March 4. 2019

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”

_ Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin was terribly misguided when he made that quote. Democracy had never been thoroughly tried, so he can be forgiven for not foreseeing that there were more serious issues with the abuse of democracy than what originates with ordinary people. So, the United States is organized as a republic and that is supposed to keep the masses from voting everything in the treasury into their own pockets. Continue reading

Fusion of Government Crime and Religion

Download PDF Version                                                                     November 15.2018

Danger is in plain view but the mind is trained not to notice. Danger itself doesn’t exactly hide. Looking at the world through the prism of fantasy yields danger unrecognizable. Seen through the prism of fantasy, danger appears to be a friend. The notion that government is your friend or even benevolent is comforting but it is only a fantasy. Entertaining that fantasy is comforting but it may also cost you everything you own or even your life. Continue reading

Mass Shootings

Download PDF Version                                                                 September 6, 2019

Laws, especially federal laws are now being enforced or not enforced depending on political power. The elite of the world are not bound by laws at all. The only time elites are prosecuted for anything is when not prosecuting them puts other elites in a bad situation. Madoff and Epstein are good examples. Organized crime has taken over government and runs it for their own benefit. Don’t think this situation has no effect on the behavior of people at the bottom of the food chain.

Nature provides ways for people to settle their differences. Originally violence was the main method used. Then democracy evolved. Democracy allows name calling, demonstrations, prejudice, discrimination and all else up to the point of breaking societies formal laws. Take away all of the not yet violent techniques for settling differences and getting ones way, and what is left is nothing but the violence democracy normally would minimize.

In the real world, which is where shootings take place, people and institutions have historically been defined and labeled according to how they appear to the people who are looking at them. When a man identifies as a woman or a woman identifies as a man, the identity is completely internal. The notion that individuals declare what they are and how others should see them is a brand new development. I am not picking on the trans folks in particular. They just provide a clear example. The fact is that we all end up being defined by the simple impressions people have of us and not the impressions we insist they have. Denying people the right to have their own thoughts and opinions on an everyday basis on anything and everything, regardless of right or wrong, makes things like mass shootings seem reasonable to those already on the fringes. That is a huge catalyst to gun violence.

So, what is government going to do to stop the shootings? If government is given the task of eliminating the shootings or stopping them entirely, we will have more mass shootings than can even be fathomed. Government initiatives to stop mass shootings will do for gun violence what programs to eliminate poverty have done for the poor people in Baltimore.

Do we create our own reality. Some argue that we do. It is a lot less convincing that we can create reality for others and that is the attempt that is constantly being made.

So folks are confounded that some on the fringes are flipping out and committing bizarre acts of violence? Given the overall atmosphere in the country, it would be surprising if these things were not happening.

Indicators Of An Impending Washout

I am not trading and have not been since 2013. I have been in a 99% cash position since that time. This doesn’t mean I will never trade again. It just means getting little or no return is my best option. Opportunities have abounded because the market has rocketed higher over and over again over the past 6 years. One of the interesting things about investing is that more fortunes are constantly flying in front of your nose than ones you take advantage of. The fact is that stock prices are manipulated to such a degree any indicators I use function as traps. I simply have no way of knowing how long the stock market can be elevated by means of government inspired affirmative stock market action. So, I have been on the sidelines. As for missed profits, others are welcome to them because they are accepting a degree of risk I have never seen in financial assets before. Anyone who has been long either by luck or expert calculus deserves what they have earned. Anyone now who can figure out how to keep their profits will be doubly deserving.

I still keep indicators because I will be back in eventually, provided there is still a stock market and a United States of America and I am still alive. I am going to show some indicators I keep to illustrate just how much danger there is in holding equities right now.

Notice the assenting head and shoulders pattern for Exxon Mobil (XOM). XOM is only one stock and not an index. But, patterns like that of XOM abound. The topping pattern covers a period of over 20 years.  What does it mean when 20 year long head and shoulders patterns break their necklines? It means a once per century washout and complete economic chaos for 5 to 20 years.

The chart below shows the total ETF volume as a percent of regular stock volume. During this long period of affirmative stock market action, a significant increase in relative ETF volume has reliably predicted bullish market turns. For the past year it has not been nearly as reliable. One of the things the manipulation consortium does is load up on bullish derivatives before goosing the averages. There has been no bear market since I have been keeping this index. Chances are signals will be reversed in a bear market. Look at the red ellipse. Relative ETF volume literately went off the charts on Friday. That means one of two things. Either the Deep State is planning to commit unprecedented resources to getting the bull market back on track starting on Monday. Or, they are giving up and loading up on bearish derivatives instead. My guess is that it is the ladder.

TZA is a popular 3X bearish ETF. TZA volume has suddenly rocketed to an extreme level. That is a good indication that folks who have rigged the market to the bullish side are flipping and plan on making windfalls on a significant ensuing drop. It also lends credence to the guess that super high ETF volume is occurring in advance of a washout.  Overall volume is increasing on the downside. To control the market, the Deep State must keep volume down. Folks may be selling without their permission. The nature of trading volume cultivated or otherwise has been perfect ALGOS and all who participate in rigging the market. That can change. As it is, almost all volume comes from from trades that last from less than a second to those which exit before the close. When long term holdings start hitting the market, the Deep State’s job may be too difficult. What happens when split second trading prowess ceases to be an asset. There are reasons why low volume is cultivated.

One time tested market breadth indicator is the percent of stocks trading higher than their 200 day moving averages. Unless averages are manipulated higher purposefully there is no way, stock averages are going to make new highs with only around 53% of stocks trading above their 200 day moving averages. Breadth divergences are typical at turning points in financial history. This is one of those times and the poor market breath is much worse than would occur in a free market setting.

I have made the point many time that using indicators to trade is pointless when supply and demand are not what is causing stock prices. It sure works that way over short and mid term trades. This it the first time I have seen long term indicators this negative. They usually do look negative in a market rigged to the plus side, but not this bad.

Bailouts Begin When Organized Support Fails

Download PDF Version                                                                  July 18, 2019

Do not think that the stock market has reached new highs for any other reason than organized support or affirmative action for stocks. Notice that lazy writers of most articles still expect the financial markets to correct in the same way markets have always changed direction.  That is not the case. Markets have been completely manipulated and are still being manipulated. Organized support will fail. At that time, new bailouts will begin immediately. Bailouts will begin before a bear market is even officially acknowledged. The market is barely off new highs and there is an aura of panic in the air already.  Waiting too long is risky. It is better to begin the bailouts before the public has time to gain information and raise objections.

Stealth bailouts have already begun. When Federal Reserve members and other economists say that inflation is needed, what they are really saying is that we need to bail out borrowers. Economists are routinely paid to use their credentials to justify sinister policies thought up by the parties who hire them. What will the trade war do in addition to impoverishing consumers by way of higher prices? The trade war will create much inflation and that will be to bail out holders of massive debt both public and private. If you don’t know how inflation serves as a tax and reduces debt, type a few key words into a search engine and read about it. It takes less than ten minutes.

The purpose of government is misunderstood. It is tempting to go with the lofty definitions learned in school and in popular culture. More important is how government is used. Fantasy Free Economics defines everything according to how it functions and not according to how it is explained to society.

Government is supposed to administer justice. Does it? No it does not. It serves more as a medium for controlling markets and managing the behavior of others for profit. To understand government, that is the process that needs to be focused on. I study government in keeping with what it really does and not according to what it is imagined to do.

The wealthiest people in the world basically have the United States government and most others working on their behaves. Who owns most of the world’s equities? They do. Since they have the enormous political power it takes to dictate government policy, they are doing just that. It makes sense that they would use government as a means of creating an ever rising stock market. They have and they will as long as it is possible but it won’t last forever. Chances are it won’t last much longer at all.

When the stock market fails the bailouts will begin. The same group that has had the political power to create government sponsored financial markets has enough political power to limit any losses by insisting on bailouts.

It has to be early in the collapse because the political structure of the country is starting to change. If they wait too long, they will have lost their advantage of political power and won’t be able to get their way.
