This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there
(at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
So use “Tips” for “Oooh, look at the interesting ponder thing!”
and “W.O.O.D” for “Did you see what just happened?! What did you think about it?”
What’s Going On?
The G20 is coming next week. The Globalist Cabal is pushing Climate Change, Migration, and “Multilateral Trade Agreements” (that are more about removing sovereignty than actual trade). Trump continues to push “America First” (as he ought, being our President) and the YSM is calling that “isolationist” when it isn’t. He’s “winning” on China, which is causing all sorts of heartburn for everyone not in America. Heiko Maas (German Foreign Minister) is pushing “Europe United” in counter point…all while Europe is becoming ever less united over their own invasion of “migrants”.
Turkey Day is behind us (but the ‘fridge is still full of turkey…). The Spouse did her entire “Christmas Shopping” in one day all on-line… So we’ll get a month of intensive advertising for no reason.
The Climate Change Fraud continues. Very Officious Reports bemoaning that All Will End and Death Is Near and Abandon All Hope!!! Unless, of course, you hand over money and sovereignty to un-elected folks in the UN… I really want to “continue the good fight” on this, but really, once it became clear that “science” was only a prop for a political agenda driven by a small powerful rich globalist cabal, it became less clear why to bother pointing out the crap being passed off as science. You can’t fight propaganda with science and what the other side is pushing is pure propaganda, with lipstick on it.
Brexit drags on. Lots of votes. Lots of noise. Where it ends up nobody knows.
France is in full riot over rising fuel costs in the “Yellow Vest” protests. So how’s that forcing people to move away from gas and Diesel working out for you, eh Macron? What happens when Globalist Ideology meets financial reality.
The USA Stock Market has been killed by The Fed with incessant rising interest rates. Tech stocks are dropping too (Twitter Facebook Google Apple…) but that is also enhanced by their desire to drive 1/2 their customer base away by suppressing conservative voices.
Oil prices are dropping nicely due to more production. Another thing the Globalists must contend with: How to keep justifying expensive alternatives as oil & coal remain very cheap. It’s pretty clear very high prices are due to political stupidity, not production limits. Piss off people enough, well, see France.
The Republican House ought to be busy getting done what they can while they still are in a position to do something. They instead are busy with holidays and drinks. The Democrats are continuing to “vote late and by the crate” – will anyone ever go to jail for this fraud?
Somewhere around Monday a new Mars Lander will try to not turn into a fireball. Stats have not been good, so “we’ll see”…
It has become very clear that government “Of the People, By the People, and For the People” has ended. Instead we have government driven by external and often foreign actors, for the benefit of the rich and powerful, and not at all of American values. What is very unclear is how to reverse this state of affairs. Just the octopus of influence agents and agencies fielded by George Soros has acted to plunge America into a variety of chaotic and disruptive processes. The Globalists are far more than just Georgie Boy, and they are pushing the same agenda in countries all over the world. This is exactly the opposite of “of the people” and “by the people” and “for the people”. It must end. But how?
Will it end in violent revolt? With 100K to 200k folks in the streets of France, it looks like that is the only way to be heard. When the Dimocrats take over the House and turn it into an “Attack Trump And The Deplorables” machine, it will be hard to avoid similar stresses here. The Color Revolution playbook says the goal is just such violence. Is it really a choice of “giving them what they want” (and hoping they can not leverage it) or just accepting their level of irritating violence without response? I hope not.
Then a ponder. In retrospect, realizing Hillary & The Big O are firmly in the Globalist camp: Was the war in Syria (and perhaps other wars back even to Libya) done for the purpose of creating the “refugees” to flood into Europe? How far back in time does this process have roots? How many of the various regimes were overthrown mostly due to their being Nationalists who would not surrender to the Globalist Cabal?
