China steals 614 gigabytes of data from Navy contractor, while we probe Russian “collusion”

Just read another article about Russian collusion, this one on Monday in Vox about why there might, possibly, circumstantially be something dangerous or suspicious in past contacts between the Donald Trump Presidential campaign or its members or associates and anyone who ever knew or worked for Vladimir Putin.

Xi Jinping

He’s smiling now!

It’s tiring to read the same old litany about why Trump beat Hillary Clinton, and you might conclude “what difference, at this point, does it make,” as she once noted.

But it does make a big difference to the giant in the room – China!

Xi Jinping, anointed China’s lifelong leader, is suddenly smiling in his noodles, as America’s media seem to be continually chasing ghosts, while our country is burglarized. Continue reading →

We use medicines made in China, marketed in U.S. If you import same drugs: $100k fine + year in jail!

A popular blood thinner now costs U.S. Medicare patients and insurers more than $5,000 a year. This drug, which has amassed sales of more than $10 billion, uses Rivaroxaban as the main ingredient – a compound available from 26 manufacturers in China.

$13,50 a day!

When you check prices for Rivaroxaban for sale in the U.S., the cost of a 10, 15 or 20 mg tablet is virtually identical, so the product quantity is not an issue. Rivaroxaban tablets sold in America, by the way, are so small they are almost impossible to cut in half to make a 20 mg tablet into two tens. Wonder why?

Since the price of materials is obviously so low (two for the price of one), it would seem that where it is manufactured is not very important, but to pencil-poking plutocrats, a penny saved is a salivating savings event of graphite proportions.

But what is the danger from manufacturing our drugs in China?

Federal Reserve is now big part of National Debt for bailing out banks; Social Security $$ not owed to us?

What government pretends to owe…

National DebtThe Social Security Trust Fund of some $2.8 trillion is often listed in charts – such as the one above – as part of the National Debt. This particular graphic, the latest available, is from the Federal Reserve, an institution that is part of the huge debt and is owed $2.465 trillion by taxpayers.

The difference between the Social Security “debt” and the Fed debt is an amazing accounting sleight of a sharp pencil. Continue reading →

Remember those 13 American colonies of Britain? Get ready for 50 American “colonies” under China

50 more stars?

The American Revolutionary War was really all about trade and the exploitation of colonies across the world by the British Empire. Nobody wanted to live under foreign subjugation, and you can’t blame them.

Today, we face a trade war with China that could set us back 214 years to colony status.

The British were the worst in trade with colonies. They even allowed a government-chartered corporation to build an army of 28,000 to rule India, so that nation’s conquered poor would supply cheap raw goods to Britain.

The London mills then turned cotton, for example, into expensive cloth, sold for top dollar. The people in India never shared in the wealth their country generated until freedom in 1947.

Another example of Britain’s avarice was the slave trade. While some 300,000 Africans were shipped to the American South, some 2.6 million were sent by the British to the Caribbean to harvest sugar. By the Civil War the 300,000 in America had grown in population to 3 million, but 2.3 million Caribbean slaves had died off, leaving just 300,000 survivors. Hell Britannia! Continue reading →

Trilateral Commission 2018 membership list of who influences politics in U. S. A. and around the world

The 2018 Trilateral Commission complete membership list is included in today’s blog. Each member’s current and past major affiliations are described.

This group meets annually in secret and participants are primarily from media, big business, think tanks, finance, education, lobbying and government. All major countries are represented, except Russia. The organization’s goal is a new world order without nationalist interests and a future dictated by elite technocrats.

Former North American Trilateral chairman Joseph Nye last month outlined the group’s opposition to President Trump’s populist trade policies, comparing him to Richard Nixon:

Will US leadership in Asia survive the Trump years?

History provides some perspective. In 1972, President Richard Nixon unilaterally imposed tariffs on America’s allies without warning, violated the framework of the International Monetary Fund, and pursued an unpopular war in Vietnam…The following year, David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski created the Trilateral Commission, which meets once a year to discuss such problems.

You can compare this year’s list to 2017, 2016 and 2015. Continue reading →

H-2A workers don’t pay Social Security (FICA) tax, neither do the millionaires who are exploiting them

Foreign agricultural workers temporarily admitted into the United States on H-2A visas are exempt from U.S. Social Security and Medicare taxes on compensation paid to them for services performed in connection with the H-2A visa. This is true whether they are resident aliens or nonresident aliens.

In addition, compensation paid to H-2A agricultural workers for services performed in connection with the H-2A visa is not considered to be “wages” for purposes of federal income tax withholding, and thus is not subject to mandatory withholding of U.S. federal income tax…Internal Revenue Service

More than 160,000 new temporary (up to three years extension allowed) workers were issued H-2A Visas last year, with about half of those going to Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Washington and California. Their employers did not pay the company share (6.2%) for FICA (Social Security) or Medicare tax (1.45%). Their bosses didn’t even withhold income taxes, making net pay almost the same same as gross pay. Continue reading →

Make American workers poor again with H-2Bs; Trump bows to business buddies and hotel honchos

During his Saturday campaign rally in Washington, Michigan, the “Hire America” President Donald Trump said that the U.S.A. unemployment numbers were so good that it was now possible to allow many more guest workers into the country to work the fields and take millions of other jobs. The audience gasped and then was silent.

FDR-PROGRSS-PROVIDE-FOR-POORIt reminded voters, some who vigorously supported Barack Obama, of how that progressive candidate promised to reform the finance cartel, but then appointed nearly everyone from Wall Street to the Cabinet and highest councils.

And many may have recalled the first George Bush’s lip-reading campaign promise of “no new taxes.”

Or FDR’s pledge in the 1940 election to not send “our boys” into a European War.

I always thought it was a choice of two scenarios: some Presidents change their mind and some lie. But now there is the third possibility – that the President doesn’t have a clue about what he is saying. Mr. Trump, are you listening carefully? Continue reading →

Congress votes to destroy Social Security, 233-184

Those April showers have drowned the media this year with reports of a petulant, prosthetic protuberant princess, also know as “What’s Her Name” or “Smarmy Scandals.”

Meanwhile, back in Congress, 233 members – 54% of that angst body – voted to destroy the Social Security system by not allowing the use of its $2.9 trillion in reserves, forcing cuts of up to 24% in coming years.

As a big boy bonus, this bookkeeping manipulation will allow the fiscal twits to proclaim that nearly three trillion dollars has been cut from the National Debt. These reserves come from excess FICA taxes previously paid by Americans to subsidize years where there was a tax collection shortfall.

But like Tiger Woods winning this year’s Masters (tied at 32), it was not to be. The bill – H.J. Res 2 – required a 66% vote to pass. It fell short by 12%, but under House rules this Constitutional Amendment can be brought up over and over again. Continue reading →

2018 Bilderberg Group listing includes familiar names of America’s leading power brokers

Any group that includes such seemingly diverse guests as Lindsay Graham, Wilbur Ross, Madeline Albright, Herb McMaster, John Kerry, Rick Perry and Ben Bernanke can’t be called political, so what’s left to describe it?

These folks and their ilk will be celebrating once again as the Bilderberg Group meets for the 66th time on June 7-10 in Turin, Italy. There won’t be anything to report on what will be discussed by the establishment’s rich and powerful, and you surely will never be invited to this or any other get together. Ah, the fate of the little people.

You could call it a secret society that meets annually at the world’s fanciest hotels and resorts, surrounded by an army of rifle-wielding private security and public police, for a closed-door session of some 140 royals, corporate kings, technology brainiacs, international bankers, politicians and military experts. You could also describe it as an event with no other apparent reason – except conspiracy. Continue reading →

How does a 100% tariff only increase the real price of a $10,500 stent or a $600 eyeglass by only $15?

What does President Donald Trump’s tariffs on $50 billion worth of imports from China actually mean, and how will this affect you?

The blather ministers of mainstream media have received their talking points from the same lobbyists who control Congress, and they are using scare tactics on the public.

“A 25% tariff on a product will raise the cost of needed goods by a third, hurting the American consumer,” one son of a billionairess announced.

“We will have shortages of needed goods,” a genius two years out of college lamented.

“There will be a trade war, like the one that caused the Great Depression,’ a fellow with a bad wig grumbled.

The last point first. The Great Depression and crash of the stock market was in 1929. The Hawley–Smoot Tariff act was passed in 1930. The Depression was the result of the greatest economic inequality in our history – until today. The Crash was not caused by tariffs enacted after the fact by the unfettered capitalist administration of GOP president (Herbert Hoover). Continue reading →
