Passive and Active Mooching

Not all mooching is the same. Passive mooching draws ridicule. Welfare mothers are passive moochers? A passive moocher does not lobby for benefits but uses current law to take advantage of existing opportunities. Not once in history have the poor lobbied Washington or begged to be taken care of.  The poor will accept food stamps, medicaid and welfare but have had no role in causing laws to be passed.

Active mooching is another story. For active moochers, mooching is a full time effort. Active mooching means going to congress constantly to get laws passed which increase one’s income and wealth.

Federal Reserve policy is what it is because of relentless active mooching. Zero interest rates give corporations a huge ongoing discount on everything they buy. Stock prices are driven higher, real wages are kept low and higher prices tax everyone else through inflation. Home buyers get mortgage rates for about 2% less than what the free market rate would be. This comes out of grannies retirement savings. So that active moochers can have low interest rates granny get little in earnings on the money she saved.

Government spending always favor groups who are huge campaign contributers.

Active mooching is not just aggressive. It is ruthless. Wars are fought for profit.

A favorite activity of conservatives is that of working up into a sanctimonious frenzy and pointing fingers at food stamp recipients and others getting passive benefits. That might be a lot of fun but it doesn’t help solve the country’s economic problems. With all of the active mooching going on in Washington, the absence of the passive moocher might not even be noticeable.

The rich never lobby for less spending or smaller government. They benefit from increased spending and large government. Otherwise they would.

At the very top of the income scale, virtually all wealth and income is gained by active mooching.  The benefits derived from active mooching become less and less moving down the income scale. The lower middle class and the poor get no benefit at all but actually contribute to the wellbeing of their more prosperous brethren.

Some examples of low end active mooching are government employees, all of whom are paid more than they would earn for the same job in the private sector. Incomes in the healthcare industry are elevated. There are man others.

Are You Out Mooched?

Governments form for the loftiest reasons. Who would feel safe without a government with armed forces? Without government who would guarantee rights of citizens and administer justice? Questions like these are taken into consideration when governments are formed and organized.

After a government begins, these noble considerations give way to the instinctive propensity of predictors to attempt to live off the efforts of others. Governments based on democratic principles, give all who live there a platform off of which they can mooch off of everyone else. The propensity to mooch is so strong that very few people will work before exhausting every opportunity to live of the efforts of others. Close to 100% will deny having any interest in mooching and will proclaim that it is others who do that. But they will and do mooch regardless.

In the republic today there are three identifiable camps. There are right wing socialists, left wing socialists and others with no political power. All groups want to mooch but only the politically powerful have the means to do so. Even folks with no political power refuse to give up perceived mooching opportunities in favor of a free market society. This all makes it hard to keep free market principles in place. The propensity to mooch is instinctive and part of nature. The process is so ingrained that attempting to mooch feels as normal as putting a coat on when it gets cold.

Left wing socialists make no apologies for who they are and what they want. Right wing socialists are the conservatives. Oddly right wing socialists do the preponderance of mooching in the United States today. This is largely done by equating pro business with pro free market as a way to get away with it.

Have you ever asked why the rich never lobby for smaller government? The reason is that their wealth comes from passing laws that enable and promote mooching at their level. As government grows, the rich get richer off the process.

Notice how conservatives spend their time. Where pro-life is concerned, they work tirelessly to restrict abortions and make them illegal. They are very successful in this regard. Conservative work hard in the name of second amendment rights. The have many success at preserving their rights and establishing new ones such as open carry.

Conservatives profess to be in favor of free markets but do absolutely nothing to get laws that destroy free markets repealed. Why do conservatives have no initiatives with respect to establishing free markets? Conservatives do most of the mooching in the country today. To go with free markets each conservative would have to give up his own personal mooch.

Who would benefit from a free market? The poor and middle class would benefit first because income opportunities would expand. The extremely wealthy would be hurt very badly because a great deal if their prosperity comes from mooching. In the end the vast majority benefit from a free market system.

The Big Mooch

Government provides a way for citizens to mooch off one another. The more political power a citizen has, the more mooching can be done. Politically powerful people do the preponderance of mooching. Those with little or no political power get few opportunities to mooch but still expect to draw benefits by virtue of being part of the population. There are a number of programs that benefit select poorly paid or non-working member of society. For the poor and middle class mooching does not have a net benefit.

Notice that government never shrinks in size. Spending never decreases. No proposals are ever made to decrease spending. No efforts are made to establish free markets. Talk of doing these things is constant but it is only talk.

Citizens identify themselves as liberals and conservatives but both favor policies they perceive as enabling mooching by the group they belong to. The country consists  of multitudes of socialists. There are liberal socialists and conservative socialists and a handful of powerless people like myself who are strong free market advocates.

I explain over and over again that economic, social, and political problems have very simple solutions that can be explained in one sentence. Long theories and complex explanations emerge not out of necessity but because the simple solution is deemed unpleasant.

All human behavior is rooted in the laws of dominance and subservience. All actions are based in self interest which makes survival possible. All predictors have a strong propensity to live off the efforts of others.  Even lions search for an already dead carcass before expending the effort to hunt. Humans are no different.

The wealth of individuals depends on the ability to live off the efforts of others. This does not have to be theft. Hiring others to carry out one’s will is still living off the efforts of others. It is just a very noble way to go about the process. When government is available to be used as a tool, countless dollars are made by passing laws that give one person an advantage over another. While virtually everyone professes to favor free markets, they seek to remove themselves from the constraints they want others to be bound by.

The result is that free markets slowly disappear. Even if the chance is illusive, citizens are not willing to give up the perceived opportunity to mooch or live off the efforts of others.

The United States is largely treated as a free market country but it is actually a top down socialist operation. Old style socialism emphasized trying to even out income distribution in ways the benefited the poor. With top down socialism government is used to divert income and resources from the poor and middle class  and channel it to anyone who has the power to control government.

New Pillars of Manipulation

Since 2006 I have been writing that the purpose of Federal Reserve policy is to elevate asset values on behalf of the world’s most politically powerful citizens. This is the only agenda the Fed has and it is the only agenda it has had for many years. I am very careful to study institutions and people according to how they function and disregard how they are defined. The Federal Reserve has never had a policy, theory or anything else that had one iota of a chance of bolstering economic activity or doing any good for the common man.

The various programs from 2008 forward have all had the purpose of protecting the assets and incomes of those wealthy enough to buy the Fed’s services.

It is said that the Federal Reserve is out of tools for the stimulating the economy. It never has had any tools and never will because they don’t exist. The Federal Reserve still has plenty of tools for manipulating the stock market and those tools will be used. The greatest tool the Fed has for all of its activitis is the extreme stupidity of United States citizens who have for generations been trained to promote their own poverty.

Anyone following the stock market will notice many articles these days about how vulnerable the stock market is. Corporations like Bank of America and Goldman Sachs are constantly putting out statements of impending doom. These kinds of commentators are members of the Deep State and are in good standing. Everything written about the vulnerability of financial assets and the overall economy is absolutely true. That doesn’t mean asset prices are about to tank immediately. When articles and statements of this nature appear in abundance, it means there will be a new attempt to goose the stock market. The more negative sentiment there is the more short positions will be initiated. Short sellers are important buyers for the next leg up.

So what will be the essence of next stock market stimulation. Squeezing shorts will be an important element to start things off. Central Banks have already been buying equities. The emphasis will now shift towards governments buying up the factors of production on a worldwide basis, What is the Deep State other than a way to control control the economic activity of the entire globe?

Add together closely held stock of Deep State members to what governments can be enticed to buy through their central banks and total control is complete. How does a group take over the world? The Deep State already owns the United States of America as well as most other economic powers. Central banks are simply directed to start buying masses of stock outright. By virtue of owning the world’s largest governments plus stock they already own privately and the Deep State will own the factors of production.

The Next Stimulus

First, what is stimulus? Stimulus is a way rich folks with plenty of political power  protect and add to the value the value of their assets. Stimulus also prevents powerful produces and vendors from suffering from decreasing demand for their goods and services. Despite all of the lofty reasons for the Fed doing this that or the other, stimulus is a politically driven agenda. Fiscal stimulus enriches powerful corporations which benefit from the activities, that are chosen for government projects. There is a net loss to society.

Another way to understand stimulus is to know that it really boils down to giving huge amounts of unearned money to the rich under the premise that money spent at the top will create activity within the rest of the economy.

The Federal Reserve cannot lower interest rates any longer. We are at the point where defaults will start occurring. Because of that, rates will start to rise regardless of what the Federal Reserve does. As it is, the Federal Reserve is under a political directive which says, do not let asset prices fall for any reason.

Central banks around the globe have been buying stocks outright for sometime now. When stocks start to slide, they will buy more.  At a moment of crisis, the United State’s central bank will announce that they are initiating an emergence equity buying program. to save the world. The reasons given will be similar to those used when the TARP bill was passed in 2008,

After the Federal Reserve announces a program to buy stocks “to save the economy”, they will not stop unless they are forced to.

Remember, the mentality in the United States is that the Federal Reserve and its policies are good and necessary. Ordinary Americans are actually being completely fleeced but they are completely unaware that their troubles have anything to do with the Federal Reserve.

Yes, the Federal Reserve is already supporting stock prices. Announcing an official program to do so, will enable them to buy huge  quantities of stock with the public cheering them own. That will be much more effective than buying stocks while pretending not to.

There is a good reason why the new stimulus will be nothing more than buying stocks. High asset prices are all that are all that is holding the economy up. Even a 10% correction would spin the whole country into a deep depression.

The public will be fleeced at much higher levels than it currently is.

Virginia Shooting

Politicians seize every opportunity to virtue signal and engage in recreational grief. Do not forget that all of these folks are hybrids of the human race in that they are sociopaths or if you prefer have political personalities. Don’t forget that you have no representation in congress. Upon taking their seats, the representation you claim as your right is freely transferred to the highest bidder. You as a citizen are simply there to be exploited if you allow it to turn out that way. There is not a soul in any branch of government who will not try and use this tragedy or any other as a means for personal gain. The vast majority in congress are nothing more than agents for the deep state which uses them to exploit you the citizen for profit.
 
The one thing this shooting did is help verify that the violence will start from the left. You can expect more of it because the everyday lawlessness we tolerate at the top does in fact trickle down. Those who are only on the fringes of sanity are the first to snap.
The economy has been destroyed. When there is not a drop of income left for the deep state operators by virtue of artificially elevating stock prices, all will see that there is very little left in terms of opportunity for the average person.
Don’t let yourself, due to mushy feelings, forget how much corruption and outright crime is ongoing in congressional dealings and the everyday running of government.
Government is for taking, not giving.

What is the Deep State?

What is the Deep State?

The Deep State is network of politically powerful people and organizations who dictate policy to all of the major governments of the world.

From Wikipedia:  “The concept of a deep state suggests that there exists a coordinated effort by career government employees and others to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership.”

Is the Deep State a conspiracy? Conspiracy is the wrong word. Governments naturally become infested with crime. The Deep State, regardless of how it is defined, functions as an organized crime organization. Odds are, there is no formal membership. Symbiotic relationships form over a number of years. Most likely the Deep State functions in a way that is similar to the way crime families of old used to cooperate with one another.

It is important to for Americans to know, that the Deep States owns the government of the United States of America. All legislation today supports the agenda of the Deep State organization. The well being of individual lawmakers, depends on how effective they are in accomplishing the goals of the Deep State. This is why, politicians take completely confounding  positions on issues when they are put on the spot. Voting contrary to the will of the Deep State, has severe consequences.

It is extremely important, to know that the Deep State itself as well as other cooperating wealthy persons are above the law. That is because they own the government. By virtue of owning the United States government, the Deep State also owns the FBI and the CIA. Why do employees of these agencies do and say such bizarre and unexpected things? There loyalty lies with the Deep State and not United State citizens.

The goals of the major media organizations are completely compatible with those of the deep state. The media is not actually biased, but just working in ways that bolster its bottom line.

Where does Donald Trump fit into this picture? For unknown reasons, Donald Trump is not part of the Deep State. A non affiliated president serves as a serious threat to them. The Deep state is a for profit organization. Their profit largely comes from managing the opinions and activities of the overall population. If Americans discover how much they are being fleeced, that will be a huge financial blow to the Deep State.

The emergency mode of efforts to get rid of Donald Trump are not based on political ideology but out of fear he might cause the break up of the Deep State or at least disrupt its business model which is based on exploiting ordinary members of the world’s population.

The End of Capitalism

Central banks are buying massive amounts of stock.Does that spell the end of capitalism? In capitalism, the factors of production are privately owned. As central banks continue to buy up the world’s supply of stocks, governments control a greater and greater supply of the factors of production. But,since what they own now is such a small percent of total stock outstanding, why does it matter?

What is bought on a daily basis is adding up rapidly. Add what central banks own to what is owned by a handful of super wealthy individuals, who control government policy and capitalism will die.

What happens during the next economic downturn? Central bank will go on parabolic buy programs.

Popular dogma, declares that central banks are working tirelessly for the good of the economies of various countries. That is not actually the case. Central banks by virtue of political systems, work tirelessly to further enrich the most politically powerful members of the human race.

Mainstream economics treats all money the same but that is false. There is money which is backed by work. That is the kind of money ordinary citizens use when buying equities. Central banks and favored citizens buy stock with unearned money. Unearned money is available in unlimited amounts.

Unearned money is created under the auspice of stimulating economies but its purpose is actually to change the behavior of others who only have earned money to work with.

Yes, central banks buying stock directly or through surrogates will destroy capitalism. Capitalism is in fact being destroyed while we watch.

Stock Market and Governments

How is it that the stock market goes up forever?  The fastest and most efficient way to create an endless flow of income and wealth is to buy the government and then give a directive to to operate an asset value enhancement initiative.  Declare that the program is in the public interest, create massive amounts of money out of thin air and then have the central bank push stock prices up.

But wait. Why only buy the U.S. government? Why not buy all of the others also? It takes massive amounts of money to buy the U.S. government. The smaller countries can be bought for a song and a dance relative to what is costs to buy the United States. Tell the world’s population that it is for their own good and that experts are in charge. There it is done.

Since we know why stock prices are rising while the world’s economies are collapsing, it becomes a piece of cake to understand why markets go up instead of down during times of global stress. Central banks simply buy enough stock to offset the negative sentiment.

The moral here is not to expect a decline ever on bad news. The public in all countries are unaware of economic danger more so than at any other time in history. The losses to the public are enormous but they are stealth in nature. As long as the public doesn’t mind, central banks will continue to move asset prices higher. If they have to, they will buy up all of the worldwide supply of equities.

Will this actually happen? It will happen, provided the public does not figure out how they are being fleeced. Complete destruction of all of the world’s economies will occur. This is no problem for the deep state. The deep state is interested only in personal gain. At whose expense is not even relevant. The world economy collapses, and they will not worry. They will have made so much money it will make little difference to them. They might be sad that this game is over. They will just start another one.

World Leaders Kill

It takes a political personality to become a world leader. That is similar if not the same as sociopath.

Shortly after being elected, without flinching, Donald Trump launched a missile attack into Syria. Somebody died for sure. We don’t know who are how many. Most only guess as to why.

Vladimir Putin is said to have ordered the execution of a number of people deemed to be traitors to Russia.

Chances are that during evolution, certain personality types came into being as various tasks within groups of people needed to be performed. World leaders are likely a result of that process. The ability of an aggregation to survive called for a leader who could make life and death decisions without the handicap of a conscience  or feelings of remorse.

That being said, Vladimir Putin is one of the greatest communicators the world has ever known. His defusing of Megyn Kelly’s ridiculous questions in St. Petersburg was totally masterful. I know little about Russian intentions on the world stage so this is not an endorsement of Putin or anything Russian. It is not a condemnation either.

Putin does not flinch. He remains businesslike regardless of the silliness of the person who is interviewing him. That is to be commended.
