THE NAME GAME

“The people’s silence is a tyrant’s greatest advocate. The less captives talked, the less they knew; the less they knew, the more they feared; and the more they feared, the more easily others could manipulate them to their own ends, the more easily the captives could be controlled.”

― John Kramer, Blythe

The socio-economic, geopolitical field is dominated by billionaires and multi-millionaires who have used their wealth and influence to seize power over the common man. Having reached the limits of control in their modern Game of Kings, these leaders of men will stop at nothing to further their goals and remain in power. The right person in power will lead a nation to prosperity, just as the wrong one will destroy all that is great. In 2016, the people spoke up and banded together to place a Washington outsider in office to ‘drain the swamp’ and take back power for the people. Since the upset against the liberal left in 2016, President Donald J. Trump has been working hard to undo the damage done by prior administrations.  The result has been lower taxes,  higher wages, the lowest unemployment  levels in decades, and unprecedented job creation.  His reward from the vocal minority has been constant criticism and insults.  The man has been doing a phenomenal job and being called every name in the book by confused fools who do not comprehend  that what he’s doing is for the good of the nation.

There are many different ways to control people, but perhaps the most insidious method is by confusion.   The less educated and intelligent a person is, the easier it is to be manipulated.  First off there is a difference between education and intelligence.

Education is the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.
Intelligence is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.

Our entire life is a learning experience, and knowledge doesn’t end at formal education. There are also various life skills and things that are not taught in school that one must acquire throughout one’s life in order to be successful and happy.  Unfortunately not every person is born a genius. Likewise there are few true morons born, and a vast number of average intellects. Public education attempts to mainstream and provide an average education of approved material. So the knowledge that is being disseminated to students is approved by a committee school board, and these board members are elected. As more and more leftists have taken over schools both as educators, and school board members, what has been being taught in school has changed drastically. The common core method of mathematics teaching is an abysmal mess that has produced a generation that can’t do basic math without a calculator.

“The Feeling of Power” is a science fiction short story by American writer Isaac Asimov. The story first appeared in the February 1958 issue of If: Worlds of Science Fiction. Although written over sixty years ago, this is a chilling cautionary tale of the distant future humans who live in a computer-aided society and have forgotten the fundamentals of mathematics, including even the rudimentary skill of counting.  A similar work of fiction “The Marching Morons” is a science fiction story by American writer Cyril M. Kornbluth, originally published in Galaxy in April 1951. In this tale, a present day man awakes from suspended animation to discover the world is 99.9% populated by morons, and the few smart people are trying to keep things running.  This second tale of the great dumbing down of society was the basis for the movie Idiocracy (2006).

Children are the future of society, and this is why every tyrant from Hilter to Kim Jong Un has focused on educating and indoctrinating the lest wise members of society so they can be better controlled. Liberals in the USA have been covertly using this same principal of brainwashing by subtlety changing words and confusing arguments. It’s all a power play to determine who’s  minding you   in a nanny state that has stripped you of freedom by tricking you into giving it away. The exceptions are NOT the rule.

The USA is the longest lasting Constitutional Republic in the history of the world. It is NOT a direct democracy, because direct democracies do not last, and fall victim to mob rule.

Democrats want to amend the  Constitution to eliminate the 2nd Amendment,  because they believe guns are dangerous, and you really don’t need one. Instead of focusing on mass shootings, they advocate gun control. If you ban guns, only criminals own guns. The 2nd Amendment protects the rest. Since most gun crimes are perpetrated by Democrats, perhaps we should bar Democrats from owning guns?

The 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Democrats really hate this one.  Whenever you disagree with them, the label it ‘hate speech’, call you a fascist, or a racist bigot. You can’t argue with liberals because they are convinced that they are right, and nothing you say will change their minds. Christianity is the backbone on American society, and liberals want it muzzled at all costs. They label passages in the Bible as hate speech for condemning homosexuality and abortion. Both are sins, and God hates sin. All sin. The Bible only contains truth. It is 100% free from error and the most successful and content people read it daily.

There is a constant stream of FAKE NEWS broadcast by left-leaning liberal media. It applies not only to the content of newscasts, but also popular  TV shows and movies which have taking on a stronger and stronger anti-conservative bias.  There was no Russian collusion, yet the liberal media continues to broadcast editorial opinions disguised as fact to further confuse viewers. They want to examine every word, and now every pause in a sentence. Yet they still find nothing while screaming the same narrative.

alzheimers-3068938_1920

Recently the left-leaning ‘fact check’ site Snopes came up with a new definition of truth,  the “factually inaccurate but morally right” fact check result for claims they don’t want to debunk because they coincide with Snopes editors’ worldview. First whose morals?

wrong

Atheists do not understand Christianity, and morals are not the same as ethics.  You can’t change the definition of a word to fit a narrative and call it truth. Lies are still lies. Morals are absolutes based on Biblical scripture, whereas ethics are situational and based on accepted societal norms and laws. This is why abortion is such a hot topic.  It’s not unethical because   it’s not illegal, but it is totally immoral despite being legal.  The fact that it was legalized to begin with is based on bad science and lies. Women were told it wasn’t a baby, it was a blob of tissue. It wasn’t a person. It wasn’t alive. It’s an IT not a he or she.

Only Christians understand Christianity. It comes from Bible study. You can’t take words out of context, and change meanings to fit your narrative.When you hear people swapping out one term for another and changing the conversation mid-topic, beware. When you try to explain a question they ask you, and talk over your answer, they do not want to hear your response. Liberalism is a mental disorder. You can’t confuse someone with facts. If they are a confused person , no fact in the world will make sense to them. The Bible has some sound advice for arguing with fools.

  • Proverbs 23:9 – Do not speak to a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words.

  • Proverbs 26:4- Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him.

  • Proverbs 29:9- If a wise man goes to court with a fool, there will be raving and laughing with no resolution  

  • Matthew 7:6- Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

Electing Donald J. Trump was the first step towards healing our lend. When America blesses God, God will bless America, land of the free, because of the brave. InstantCoffeeWisdom .com will return in June. Happy Memorial Day Weekend and as always, I wish you success and happiness!

A HOUSE DIVIDED?

Only you can prevent Socialism!

a house divided

“Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.” -Albert Einstein

You don’t have to be a genius to realize that the United States Of America is unique among nations. As the oldest constitutional republic and longest lasting capitalist country, it has been attacked from day one by those who would see it destroyed. Unfortunately not all enemies are foreign. Since he US Civil War (Apr 12, 1861 – Apr 9, 1865) it has been evident that various leaders of the Democratic National Committee have been attacking the fundamental principals which made this great nation. None would dare call their actions treason, but they are a cancer which must not spread to the next generation. Patriots aren’t born, but patriots need to educate their children to inculcate them from the disease of Socialism. Freedom is only ONE generation away from extinction.

It’s a Grand Old Flag!               

One of the most striking changes that I witnessed following the events of September 11th, 2001 was that in the days that followed that despicable  terrorist attack against the USA, suddenly everyone was a patriot  and nearly every house was displaying an American Flag. Unfortunately, instant patriots do not last. While slightly more than half the nation remained vigilant, the new instant patriots slowly went back to their old ways.  Since the TERRORIST ATTACK that destroyed the Twin Towers and damaged the Pentagon, an entire generation has been born and these 18 year olds and younger have been taught such lies as the US deserved the attack, it wasn’t TERRORISM, and most recently to quote the words of DEMOCRAT  Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district since 2019 Ilhan Abdullahi Omar, “Some people did something.”

“The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think. The problem is that Johnny doesn’t know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.”– Thomas Sowell

God, guns, and guts made America great!

Changes in public education have slowly removed the teaching of The Bible in schools, trivialized or eliminated entirely the faith of the Founding Fathers, and streamlined American history in favor of teaching world history and world religions. Children are being taught what to think, not how to think. Civil discourse has all but disappeared and topics of religion, politics, and economics have become the big three no-nos of ‘polite’ conversation.   These are the same tactics that Mao Tse Tung and Adolph Hitler utilized when they created The Red Guard and The Hitler Youth. By co-opting and corrupting the minds of impressionable children, they were able to create brainwashed young adults whom they used to change and  destroy any opposition to ‘the party line’.  These useful idiots are exactly whom Saul Alinsky’s  protégés will use to attempt to win the 2020 election.  In the USA, the head of the DNC Nancy Pelosi wants to lower the voting age to 16 because it’s “important to capture kids when they’re in high school”. DNC Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was pushing her ‘Green New Deal’ and attempting to convince the youth of the nation that is something isn’t done,  the world will end in 12 years. Such attempts by the Democrats to sway children to ‘The Dark Side’ should strike terror into the heart of every parent in this country.   We need to ignite the spark of patriotism in our children so they can become a light against the darkness that threatens to destroy our land.

2020 Vision

In 2016, Donald J. Trump was elected 45th President of the USA to the stunned disbelief of every Democrat. A grassroots campaign lead by conservative Christians and right-wing Republicans helped launch this great patriot into the oval office.  A constant barrage of Fake News  has been slandering this man since day one. Trump has been on record for over thirty years as saying that he would only run for president if he felt this nation was in danger of being destroyed, and that was exactly what the previous administration was in the process of. All of the freedoms that make America great were being slowly attacked, and Trump was the only man who could stand up to the career politicians and ‘Drain the Swamp’.  No American president in our lifetime has loved and defended our nation and our way of life more than Donald. J. Trump. He has been fulfilling his campaign promises since day one, and this terrifies the Liberals.  They know that when he wins re-election in 2020, the DNC will never regain power in their lifetime.  Currently there are 21 contenders from the DNC considering a run for the White House in 2020. This is the largest attempt by any party to seize power, and such attempts usually end in failure with few exceptions. In 2020, just as in 2016, there will be many new first-time voters 18 and up. We need to convince them of the importance of voting for another four years of the Trump presidency because the fate of our nation and its continued prosperity are on the line. Nearly all of the DNC hopefuls including Kamilla Harris and Joe Biden claim the 1st thing they will do is repeal the Trump Tax Cut, and instill higher taxes.  Taxation is theft, and when Walter Mondale tried this tactic with the Reagan Tax  Cuts, he lost 49 states in 1984. Donald J. Trump could become the first US president to win all 50 states in the Electoral College, another creation by the Founding Fathers which the Liberals want to abolish. Liberals want to re-write or re-interpret the Constitution and preferably ban all private gun ownership, meaning only criminals will own guns.   Also, having lost the liberal majority in the Supreme Court, they want to change than as well.   The 2020 President Election may be the most important election since Abraham Lincoln won, and if Donald J. Trump loses, America loses. Were  we go one, we go all. Our entire way of life is under attack.  As always, I wish you success and happiness!

WHO’S MINDING YOU!

Escaping the ‘nanny-state’!

This is the forth article in the ‘Who’s Minding’ series. For the first three parts read Who’s Minding the Bank?, Who’s Minding the Market?,  and  Who’s Minding the Food?

I’ve got no strings

To hold me down

To make me fret

Or make me frown

I had strings

But now I’m free

There are no strings on me–  song I’ve Got No Strings by Dickie Jones, 1940

Everyone has an agenda. Some are obvious, are some subtle, and some are hidden and secretive.  Except in the most rare of cases, the person pulling the strings wants what’s best for themselves above all else. Sometimes what’s good for them is also good for everyone else,  and sometimes it’s unashamedly mercenary.  Without question, the two thousand plus billionaires of the world wield great power over the average person.  They are the modern kings of today’s world, and they are playing a Game of Kings to stake out their own little section of the world to rule.  They are the tops of the pyramid, the kings of the hill.  Next in line are the millionaires and multi-millionaires. They too have great power over the lives of the average person.  Independent, hard working people come next. At the very bottom of the pyramid are the wretched dregs of society. People who have either giving up on trying to better themselves, and are dependent upon social welfare programs and the kindness of strangers to survive.

If you are fortunate enough to live in the United States of America,  then you are blessed indeed. The USA is a land of limitless opportunities, and built upon the tenants of freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  Since the nation was founded 243 years ago, it has been the target of powerful people who want to subvert and destroy our great nation. For parts of the nineteenth and all of the twentieth centuries,  the Democratic National Committee has been trying to remake the USA and destroy the Christian country created by the Founding Fathers.  Democrat is indeed the new communist as the liberal left slinks further  and further towards radical socialist agendas and establishing a permanent power over the average citizen. In their new vision of America, we the people will be dependent on the government from cradle to grave.  They will slander and attempt to destroy anyone who dares to oppose them.

Our nation and its government is BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.  There is nothing wrong with wealth. There is nothing wrong with success. We live in a capitalist society and our economy grows through consumerism.   If people are buying, selling, and trading, there are jobs being created.  What is wrong is when a government tries to enslave all its citizens and destroy the means of creating wealth while raising taxes and killing jobs. This is what Barack Hussein Obama II was in the process of doing, and what Hillary Rodham Clinton would have continued had she been elected.  Fortunately,  there was a very powerful patriot, billionaire Donald J. Trump who was willing to fight to save our nation from those who were willing to save it.  Trump’s love for our nation exceeds that of any president in our lifetime, even greater than Ronald Reagan. Fortunately, WE THE PEOPLE banded together in such force to elect this great man to the highest office. Donald J. Trump has been insulted, slandered, belittled, and bashed by all those who oppose him. The liberals are losing, and they know it!

  • Billionaires control our world.
  • They control our banks.
  • They control our economy and industry.
  • They control our food.
  • They control our media.
  • They control our communications and social networks.

They control so many aspects of our lives, but they can only control us if we allow them.  All of the media, communications, and social networks THEY created can also benefit US if we take the time to navigate the sea of lies and misinformation that powerful LEFTIST billionaires are imposing upon us.  Every wealth group from the ultra-poor to the mega-rich can be divided into two main camps, the left (liberal) and the right (conservative). There are also two other smaller subgroups that are far dangerous to our nation. The centralist, who can flip-flop on issues at the drop of a hat, and the anarchist who wants no government of any kind and doesn’t care about politics at all.  Both of these groups are products of the post-modern school of thought which claims there is no right or wrong.

In God We Trust!

There was a reason that Madalyn Murray O’Hair fought hard to ban studying the Bible in public schools in 1963. She was a militant feminist, communist, and atheist who founded the group American Atheists.  She  claimed that religion was “a crutch” and an “irrational reliance on superstitions and supernatural nonsense”.  In reality this was all part of a greater plan. The USA was founded as a Christian nation, and by removing the study of the Bible from public schools, O’Hair was sowing the seeds for the destruction of the US.  Without God, there is no USA. 

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. – Psalm 33:12

There is a difference between religion and spirituality, just as there is a difference between morals and ethics. Unfortunately few take the time to learn the distinction.  Spirituality is a belief in God, and the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Religion is a system of rules and doctrines.  This is why Jesus said in James 1:27 “Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. ”   

There is no such thing as a moral atheist because morals are based on Biblical absolutes whereas situational ethics are fluid and can change with the individual or situation. Good can be bad and bad can be good  in the mind of post modernists. God is good ALWAYS and when you eliminate the study of the Bible, you erode the moral backbone of the nation.  If something is legal, it is not unethical. If it were unethical, it would be illegal. Immoral is always immoral, whether it is legal or not. So the word of God is not a ‘controlling’ force, but a guiding factor which is for our benefit.  Warning us about destructive behaviors is not HATE, it is truly being done  for our benefit so that we may life a healthy, happy, and productive life.  The only time I’ve ever seen happy atheists are when they were insulting Christians.

The bottom line is that there are many forces in this world that are trying to control us, even up to and including the point of a gun.  The power we give these earthly forces over us is an illusion we allow them, one that we can shatter at any time. WE THE PEOPLE have the real power, and if God is with us, who can stand against us? As always, I wish you success and happiness!  

Who’s Minding the Food?

Junkfood junkies!

whos minding the food

“Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.” ― Orson Welles

The Standard American Diet is about 2,200 calories per day, with 50% of calories from carbohydrates, 15% protein, and 35% fat. It is very different from those of our forefathers.  

Since the start of the industrial revolution, the everyday lifestyle of mankind has changed in many ways.  When the United States was founded in 1776, the vast majority of its citizens lived in an agrarian society. We farmed and grew our own food, or worked for those that did. Once industry took hold, and large cities began to spring up, we shifted to a largely metropolitan society. In 1870, almost 50 percent of the U.S. population was employed in agriculture, today it is less than 2%. Farming is neither glamorous, nor easy. 

This shift has resulted in a two-fold negative lifestyle impact on the people in our nation:

One – We must buy processed and preserved food from supermarkets.

Two– We no longer endure the physical labor needed to burn off the calories in the food we eat.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”– words of Jesus Christ from  Matthew 7:9-11 NIV

We in the USA may take it for granted because our nation has never known long-term widespread famine, or food shortages, but food is perhaps the greatest way to control a country. Laws ,economics, and education  may restrict your life in a myriad of ways, but cut off your food and water long enough and you’ll die. Poison the food supply, and you slowly sicken, weaken and given enough time, kill the people who eat it.  All food is made of up to three components: Fats, proteins, and carbohydrates (carbs for short).  Carbohydrates are just the scientific word for sugar, and comes in two forms, complex and simple. Simple carbohydrates are made up of just one or two sugar molecules. As such, it doesn’t take much for your body to break them down and absorb them (as glucose) into the bloodstream. For this reason, simple carbohydrates raise blood sugar much faster and usually higher than complex carbohydrates.

According to a study printed in The BMJ (formally called The British Medical Journal) in an average American diet,  about 57.9% of the daily caloric intake of about 2200 kcals is coming from ultra-processed foods, 9.4% from processed foods, 2.9% from processed culinary ingredients. Only a mere  29.6% (less than a third) of our food intake is from unprocessed or minimally processed foods.

There are more than 38,000 processed food products on grocery shelves in the US. This includes the so-called ultra -processed foods which accounts for 90% of the added sugar in the Standard American Diet .  Additionally the majority of these items contain chemical additives, dyes, and preservatives that are unhealthy to say the least. High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) often takes the place of refined sugar, but is far worse. The human body can’t process this artificial sugar made by converting starch into fructose. HFCS has been added to many products to ‘make them taste better’. Whenever you see ‘new improved’ on a box, automatically think added sugars and fat. Any calories you consume that you don’t burn off daily are stored in your body as fat.

 The Standard American Diet is SAD indeed.

Feed The World?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock your entire life, it should come as no surprise to you that billionaires (and to a lesser extent multi-millionaires) control the world. They are the modern day equivalents of kings, and world domination is a game of kings. As such, these contemporary would-be rulers reign over almost every aspect of our lives. They may not officially own the country, but they do control either the food supply, or the distribution chains for it. (I’m not even going to get into restaurant chains. Americans may be eating-out more than ever, but restaurants are still just a luxury, not a necessity.)

Of the 38,000 processed foods on the shelves in food stores, more often than not we go for a trusted name-brand. All of the major supermarket chains have an in-house brand that’s comparable or sometimes superior to the national brand. They may even have similar packaging and be placed side-by-side on the shelf.  Many of these knock-offs or, no-frills alternatives are manufactured by the same exact factories as the recognized brand.  All of the official brands in the world are owned by just ten corporations as shown in this infographic from Oxfam.   

oxfam

Additionally most supermarkets stock all major brands. There are few exceptions such as the Trader Joe chain which stocks nearly 95% of their store brand instead. Trader Joe is an American company which specializes in organic health foods.  Their groceries are top-notch, and cost a few pennies more. You get what you pay for. The top-selling supermarket company in the world is Kroger.

We are what we eat!

There are countless diet cooks, cook books, and health books in print and on line, yet two out of three Americans are overweight.  This is senseless!  Food is necessary for life, but not everything we are able to eat is good for us. Sometimes it’s a matter of the ingredients, other times it is portion size. The times of day and the frequency of which we eat can also play a part. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. Of all the addictions in the world, food addiction is the worst because you need to eat to live. Junkfood may taste wonderful, but all things in moderation. The quality of life of a morbidly obese person is far diminished from that of a person leading a healthy, active lifestyle. The bottom line is that health is far more important than wealth if you want to live a successful and happy life.   No one can force you the eat healthier, that decision rest sole with you. As always I wish you success and happiness!

Who’s Minding The Market?

Is the game rigged?

‘The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.’ —Brian Tracy

You’ve probably heard the old cliché ‘the rich get richer while the poor stay poor (or get poorer)’. Although this truism  is often used by the media as a way of stirring up class warfare, it would be more accurate to say, ‘you get what you pay for.’  Success expert and motivational speaker Brain Tracy often remarks that the real reason people are poor is because they haven’t decided to be rich. The truth hurts, but facts are facts. Facts may offend, but facts are incontrovertible, transcendent of whomever says them. Rich people didn’t get rich by making poor people poor, for the most part, they did it by fearlessly investing their money somewhere. 

Knowledge is power

There is a lot of fake news out there, and our society has never been more plugged in and connected. Unfortunately there is a big difference between reading something and understanding it. Not every bit of information being relayed to you is for your benefit. Some information like advertising contains subliminal messages to entice you to purchase their product. Is that flashy new model automobile really that much better than the car you own, or than the dozen other advertisements from other car companies all of which claim to be the best and most reliable on the road? At the end of the day, you can only drive as fast as the posted speed limit, and few people are impressed by your car for very long, if ever. A 17-year old Hyundai Accent that still runs will get you to work just as fast as a brand new one.

Subliminal messages appear in just about every piece of information presented to you. It is a hidden suggestion in the content intended to sway your opinion to their side of the issue.  Someone is pulling your strings, and you won’t even know it unless you learn to read between the lines.  The poor are exploited by the rich because the rich have power, and the poor lack it.

Money is power

Financial freedom is one example of power that the rich have. When you have enough money, you can do anything and go anywhere.  With the possible exception of the nouveau riche, all rich and successful people invest in the stock market. Poor people do not invest in the stock market for a variety of reasons.

  • The most overused excuse is that they lack money. The reality is that they waste money on junk.
  • The next excuse is that they don’t want to lose their money. The reality is your money is gone the moment you spend it on any consumable item. Try getting your money back for the pack of cigarettes you smoked.
  • Stocks are very expensive.  Amazon may sell in excess of $1860 a share, but there are literally thousands of ‘penny stocks’ that cost less than a pack of smokes or even a can of soda.
  • They don’t understand it. That is a valid excuse. A fool and their money are soon parted. However, it is a limitation which can be easily overcome by study and time. Leaders are readers!

“It’s my own desire

It’s my own remorse

Help me to decide

Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure

Nothing ever lasts forever

Everybody wants to rule the world.”   – song Everybody wants to rule the world by Tears for Fears (1985)

Power is power

The rich have knowledge, money, and power. This allows them to control various aspects of our lives.  Some rich people like President Donald J. Trump root for the common man and want every citizen to achieve whatever goals and dreams they aspire to. Others like Bernie Sanders want to control every aspect of our lives from cradle to grave. To warped frustrated old men like Sanders, we are not people, we are cattle. Unfortunately many young mush-heads believe the socialist garbage being spooned down their throats. America is a great nation because of Christianity and capitalism.  No nation on Earth is perfect, but the USA is the greatest bastion of freedom, liberty, and opportunity in the world, and there are powerful men that are working hard to change that. The current generation, known as millennials, are the first generation born in the USA not to be richer than their parents.  They were duped and manipulated by misinformation, fake news, liberal teachers, and mass media.

Is the stock market being gamed?

All media outlets are ultimately owned  by the rich, and they can use these media outlets to influence the thoughts and behaviors of the masses.  If a financial expert on a top news program  suddenly proclaims that the bull market is nearly over, some people panic and sell their shares because the price drops. A short while later, the stock rebounds to new heights. Not only has the skittish investor  lost on their initial investment, but they also missed out on potential gains had they held on to their shares.  An important book to read on this topic is Unshakeable by Tony Robbins. It is impossible to ‘time the market’ and a wise investor knows that bull markets are around long, and bear markets only last a short while. The key is to stay the course. The market is not rigged, but there is some level of manipulation being used against unseasoned investors to exploit their fears. As Warren Buffet would say, ‘when everyone’s selling, he’s buying’.

Facebook Stock is currently trading at $178.28 as of  April 18th 2019. The 52 week high was $218.62 and the low was $123.02. If you panicked and sold it at $123, you would have missed a nearly 50% gain. If you sold at $218, you could have locked in any gains you made, and reinvested it at a later time buying something else, or buying shares at the current $178 price in the hopes of future gains. If you had bought Facebook in 2012 at its IPO of $38, you would have made out like a bandit in either case. Imagine how the people feel who sold their shares a week after the IPO when the stock plunged to about $26 per share and so-called experts were calling it a bad investment! Better yet, imagine if you had brought AMAZON in 1997 for its IPO at a mere $18 a share. A $10,000 investment in that company alone would have made you a millionaire today.  What you hear about a company on the news may cause you to panic and sell at the wrong time, or encourage you to buy at the wrong time, or worse yet never even buy at all. Past performance is no indication of future performance.

Inside, OUT!

You may have heard of Insider trading, where sensitive information about a company is clandestinely shared with an individual so that they can gain an advantage over the average investor. This is against the law, MOSTLY. There are exceptions to this rule for certain people, and possibly even ways to theoretically circumvent the laws if you are rich and powerful.

What exactly is insider trading? In order for a person to be considered an ‘insider’ they need to have either a 10% stake in that company, or access to valuable, non-public information about that company.  CEOs, presidents, vice-presidents, and board members  are all considered insiders.  In order to LEGALLY trade on shares  IF YOU ARE AN INSIDER,  these transactions must be properly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and are done with advance filings. It is also illegal to share insider information to protect friends and family members who might own stock in that company.  That’s what happened to Martha Stewart in 2001 when she found out  her friend’s company ImClone’s new cancer drug was being rejected by the FDA, and she suddenly sold all her shares days before the official announcement.   Attempting to save $250,000 landed her in jail. Illegal is still illegal even if you don’t like the law. Had she just waited until news of the rejection of the new drug was publicly aired, she might have taken a little or no loss, avoided jail, and would have been able to write off any losses as a tax credit. Greed can get you in trouble fast.

The bottom line

You will never be able to spend your way into prosperity. The only way to get rich quick is to do it slowly. Rich people run the world, and they got rich because they made the proper choices, took risks, and invested their money. They earned their money the old fashioned way, they worked for it. The good news is that opportunity exists everywhere if you are willing to look for it, and do the work. As always, I wish you success and happiness!

WHO’S MINDING THE BANK?

Whoever controls the money also controls the country!

whos minding the bank

In 1913, president Woodrow Wilson pushed though his Federal Reserve Bank enforcing a central banking system upon the country, supposedly for the good of the country. The Bank that Woody built in turn allowed the USA to begin running up a massive federal debt by borrowing huge sums of money to pay for any shortfalls in the federal budget.  As you may have heard, CASH IS KING because cash on hand provides opportunity to seize the moment and clinch the deal. No one benefits by being a day late and a dollar short.  Borrowing money at interest may at times be necessary, but it is never cost effective over the long term because due to the compounding of interest eventually you end up paying two or three times the original price.  The only difference between personal debt and government debt is the scale, but the result is the same. Whenever the interest rate is increased, the ability to repay the debt is decreased.  Until recently, ultra-low interest rates, set by the Federal Reserve to support the economy, allowed lawmakers to borrow without fretting too much about the cost of that debt. But as the economy has strengthened, the Fed has gradually raised rates.

Each time the Fed raises rates, the stock market also reacts negatively. This is because all banks in the USA are required by law to be members of the Federal Reserve Bank.  These local banks then loan out money to consumers,  which they have in turn borrowed from the Fed. This is known as fractional reserve banking.  If the Fed raises rates, all debtors suffer. Local banks have to raise their rates, to recoup the loss. New loans suddenly become more expensive than old loans, and spending drops. If spending drops, the economy slows, businesses close, jobs  are cut, etc. It’s a cumulative effect. Fractional reserve banking is a sort of ponzi scheme in that as a result, approximately 90% of the ‘money’ in the world really doesn’t exist. It’s just debt on paper, an I.O.U.  The only ones growing rich are the owners of the banks.

How do you make money on ZERO?

Short answer, you don’t. Zero means zero. It’s also bait for a trap.

Forget government spending for a second, and let’s go back to basics. (Remember the only real  difference between macro and micro economics is the scale.)

You receive a credit card offer in the mail offering 0% interest on new purchases and balance transfers for a year, or longer.  For the sake of this hypothetical example, we’ll set the term at two years, no interest, and a credit limit of $20,000. You now have a revolving credit line, and the bank is secretly hoping that habitual use of this line of credit will result in a maxed out card. Let’s assume that on day one, you make a $20,000 purchase on some extravagant item that you can’t afford, but have always wanted.  Now assume that the minimum monthly payment is just 1% of the total balance.  The 1st month you pay $200, the 2nd $198, the 3rd $196 etc. At the end of one year, you still have a balance over $17,729. And you only have 12 more months to pay this off before your 0% offer ends, and the bank starts charging you its normal 22.9% rate on your outstanding balance.  If you could only afford the minimum balance with your current income, you will never be able to pay off this debt in time, and even worse you’ll be getting charged more in interest than you are paying in, so you’ll be enslaved by debt for the rest of your life. The only way to pay off this initial debt in a 24 month period is to make 24 equal monthly payments of $834 and make no new charges. Under that repayment plan, you have a true zero fee loan that the bank makes no money on, and you beat the trap that most people fall prey to.

So how do we pay off the federal debt?

In a nutshell, the same way. We need the Fed to reinstate the zero percent interest rate, and keep it there while we trim all the fat from the federal budget  eliminating any and all unnecessary spending.

Who’s the boss?

Unfortunately, the Federal Reserve is a private bank, not owned by the government. It is unique in that it is both public and private, and is independent within the government. As such, it can control our economy for better or worse. Just as nominees appointed by the president to the Supreme Court of the United States can impact our country for decades, so can nominees to the Fed. President Donald Trump may have a golden opportunity to reshape the orientation of the Federal Reserve as several of its board members will be retiring in the near future.  Currently, Trump’s two recent nominees to the central bank, Herman Cain and Stephen Moore, are imperiled by growing resistance from within the president’s own party.   The RINO Republicans are jeopardizing the president’s promise to strengthen our economy, eliminate our national debt, and Make America Great Again by opposing his nominees.  Cain was a former presidential candidate famous for his 9-9-9 tax reform plan and is a big supporter of Trump, as well as a long-time friend.  Herman Cain’s nomination is effectively dead, but that may have been a ploy to get Stephen Moore confirmed instead. Moore is a strong supporter of capitalism, and has stated that the 16th Amendment which created the national income tax was the most evil law passed in the 20th century.   All of this is a moot point is the Democrats should somehow steal the 2020 election, so it is of the utmost importance to stand behind President Trump, now more than ever. As always, I wish you success and happiness!

FAKE NEWS?

‘Q’ the footage!

fake news

(This is the second in a two part series, for part one read EVERYONE’S WATCHING!)

In 1897, Adolph S. Ochs, the owner of The New York Times, created the famous slogan “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” It was a declaration of the newspaper’s intention to report the news impartially. It  still appears on the masthead of the newspaper today.  Print news is dying and many small town newspapers either get absorbed by larger competitors or shutter their doors forever if they fail to find buyers. Every large newspaper still in existence is owned by some billionaire somewhere for reasons both whimsical and nostalgic.  Democrat Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, owns The Washington Post.  Democrat Bill Gates, second richest man owns at least four papers. Warren Buffet, also a Democrat, is the third richest man in the world and owns 30 regional newspapers through his Berkshire Hathaway holding company.  Although using newspapers for obtaining news is rapidly declining , they  still have a significant subscription base as about one in seven adults still read them. Forget newspapers for just one second. EVERY FORM of information distribution be it print, radio, television, film, or internet is ultimately owned by some billionaire, and reflects their personal political, religious, and economic agendas.

More people get their news from the internet than newspapers, and television is still the king of media but internet news as a whole is gaining rapidly . These demographics change when you filter out age groups, as most younger Americans get the lion’s share of their news from the internet and through social media platforms such as Twitter, Face book, YouTube and even Snapchat. In 2016 the Pew Research Center released a study showing 89 percent of surveyed college students said they got at least some of their news from social media. The future of the nation lies in its youth. If you can influence children from an early age, you will be able to control their thoughts and manipulate them for the rest of their lives.  We get information from many sources, but it’s up to us to use our cognitive abilities to determine if the news makes sense.

Back in 2012, a viral video produced by Invisible Children blew up on social media. It focused on a barbaric Ugandan warlord named Joseph Kony.  Since the 1990s, Uganda has been engaged in a number of civil wars, the most protracted being a 20 years’ war against Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) .   Joseph Kony makes Idi Amin look like Mickey Mouse in comparison. The video and the group behind it stirred up the youth of the nation with the tagline KONY 2012 and a plea have someone somewhere do something to bring Joseph Kony to justice.  Of course, nothing resulted from the media stunt except that the young social justice warriors found other causes to champion, such as the ice-bucket challenge, or eating Tide Pods.  Turning 18, or even 21 doesn’t make you an adult, it only gives you a legal status. These young adults lack discernment, life-experience,  and enough wisdom to see that although something may have seemed like a ‘good idea at the time’ it truly wasn’t.  They are what Saul Alinsky   referred to as ‘useful idiots’ and are targeted by powerful liberals who ultimately want to destroy the USA and kill the American dream.

Upper echelon liberals in the DNC (Democratic National Committee) want the best possible lives for themselves while destroying the American dream for the average citizen in the process. They will lie, cheat, steal, and in if they think they can get away with it, even kill in order to gain and retain wealth and power.  One example is  Bill Maher who has publicly rooted for an economic downturn which would destroy the life savings of hard-working American citizens because he believes it’s the best way to cost Trump reelection to the presidency in 2020. The talk show host, comedian, actor, and political commentator’s net worth is $100 million.

Using the power of the internet and social media platforms, these powerful members of the DNC have been waging a non-stop media war against the rightfully elected US President, Donald J. Trump. They have slandered and libeled him ever since his unprecedented win against Hillary R. Clinton in the 2016 election. The DNC tried to stir up college students to support their platform by comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler, and calling him deranged, arrogant, incompetent, and just an all-out ‘bad man’. They spent two years alleging Russian collusion that was non-existent. When the findings of The MULLER REPOERT were summarized and released, they could not accept the facts, just like they could not accept the election results in 2016.      

 “President Trump is a truly unique leader in American history. He’s a kid from Queens who became an international business leader and made billions by getting things when no one said he could,” –John McLaughlin, Trump’s 2016 campaign pollster

“They told him he couldn’t be president and beat the establishment and he did. For two years the establishment is telling him he can’t do things in Washington and he’s succeeding in spite of them. He never retreats. He doesn’t back up. He’s relentless. He just wins,” ­–John McLaughlin

Facts are facts

‘Pics or it didn’t happen’ is a phrase used on Internet forums to counter the vast range of unverifiable claims made by users. It’s ironic because even when presented with facts, many will question the information. There are verifiable facts that even the brightest college students will ignore. There are kids that don’t even believe the moon landing in 1969 happened, instead choosing to believe it was filmed on a sound stage.  This is one of the reasons that young Americans are embracing the lie of socialism, and  if they are not educated to this folly, one day they might succeed in electing a tyrant intent on destroying the US once and for all. Donald Trump is the only man intent on repairing the damage done by the Obama administration. Had the majority of voting Americans been tricked into electing Clinton instead,  It would have been a continuation of the destruction of our way of life.  To date, Donald Trump has accomplished 289 of his campaign promises in just 20 months.

Enter Qanon

The left obtains power by silencing and destroying their enemies, but the truth is out there  if you look for it.  The problem is the signal-to-noise ratio, and being able to filter though the mind-blowing amounts of information.

Currently more than 3.7 billion humans use the internet . Each day, more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is created. That’s more information than you could process in a lifetime being generated every single day. Half of all the web searches are being done from mobile phones. The most popular search engine is Google, which now processes more than 40,000 searches EVERY second (3.5 billion searches per day)  and accounts for 77% of all the searches conducted.

The Internet has expanded the variety and amount of accessible political information. On the positive side, this may create a more pluralistic form of public debate; on the negative side, greater access to information may lead to selective exposure to ideologically supportive channels. It is possible for a person to create their own virtual echo chamber through search engine optimization and the proper key words.  In other words, if you love Trump, you’ll find sites praising him, and if you hate Trump, you’ll find sites damming him. It is more important to consider not only what is being said, but who is saying it and why.  Consider the source. Both parties have an agenda. Both parties believe in their cause. Only one is right, even though they both believe they are right and the other is wrong. I have said it from day one, I am a conservative Republican, and I fully support President Donald J. Trump and his political agenda of Making America Great Again. I’d also like to see the entire DNC united on a platform, one with nooses and a trap door.  They have conspired and committed treason against this nation, and treason has a death penalty. Just ask Julius and Ethel Rosenberg .  

Since October of 2017 an anonymous online poster code-named ‘Q’ has been dropping cryptic tips and information in various internet chat rooms first in 4-chan, than on 8-chan. Many of these posts invite the reader to examine various articles, images, and tweets which support the claim that Trump has been targeted by members of a ‘Deep State’ which has been trying to destroy the USA in secret. There are many sites and even apps for your smart phone which will allow you to filter through the various Q ‘drops’ and read post made by fellow Q researchers. Donald Trump managed to do with Twitter what Roosevelt did with radio, and what Reagan did with television. He used the medium to directly address the American people.  The internet is far more powerful than newspapers, radio, or even television ever were. The sum total of human knowledge is stored online, and can be directly accessed by anyone with a  wi-fi  capable smartphone. These phones record video and take pictures which can be uploaded by concerned ‘citizen journalists’ in an effort to counter the lies of the left. When Liberals claim Trump had a rally, and no one showed, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of posts of pictures and videos to discount the hoax. Trump was elected by a grassroots movement to reclaim our nation from those who would see it destroyed.  Career criminals have been pillaging the USA for years, and Trump was the only person powerful enough to stand up and fight back.

Consider this analogy:
Say there is a school yard bully. He terrorizes the smaller and weaker children, beating them up and staling their lunch money  so he can enjoy a free lunch while his victims suffer and starve.  The only true way to defeat the bully is to find a champion willing to stand up for the little guy.  Trump is the champion standing to  those who are trying to transform our nation into a third world socialist nightmare. Trump is a patriot and believes in the American dream.

The world is run by billionaires and it takes another billionaire to face up to those who would be kings in a game of kings for global domination.  It may be like David vs. Goliath, but if God is with us, who can stand against us? A storm is coming and there has been a ‘Great Awakening’. In order for us to continue to enjoy our economic success, to live our lives in the pursuit of liberty and happiness, America needs to be strong and remain free.  The DNC will do anything and everything it can to steal the 2020 election and undo all the good Trump has accomplished.  If you don’t support Trump, you don’t support the USA, and you don’t belong living in it. America is a nation governed by the people for the people, we have the power to take back our country from those who are willing to destroy it, and despite who we elect to represent us, the real power still rests in us, and our votes.
