Biden Orders Nuclear Weapon Grade Uranium To Australia, Organizes Preliminaries For WW3.

September 21, 2021

France created the USA, as a republic, in the name of diversity, humanism and freedom… against the British plutocracy. But plutocracy, that force which wants to destroy civilization always, rears again…. 

Neo-con Biden intervened,  between France and Australia. A somber machination was revealed. Setting up some preconditions for World War Three… Breaking a treaty between France and Australia was an aggression and it hides much greater ones, past and future. The US Deep State’s mentality was born before the first English colony, four centuries ago (it trained to massacre in Ireland, with the same “West Country Men” who financed the English colony in America). The main mentality of the US Deep State knows only one principle: maximal exploitation… Sustainability be damned. To get there the US Deep State will lie, dissemble and stab in the back, as needed.   

Native Americans were in the way, of the progress towards greater greed, they got exterminated. European empires were in the way: they got terminated from a crafty instrumentalization of German imperial racism and plutocracy with timely and judicious US support thereof.

The cancellation of the Australia-France defense contract is more of the same: upon deep examination, all the reasons presented by the Anglo-Saxon side are lies. What is left, is the truth… and it is definitively disconcerting.

Basically the Anglo-Saxon side hinted that the French submarines were not good enough. However France was designing a class of AIP(Air Independent Propulsion) submarines, with added fuel cells, at the request of Australia… Because Australia did not want nuclear submarines… That class of subs made for Australia, the “Attack” was derived from the SSN (Sub Surface Nuclear) type Barracuda, the existing class being the Suffren. AIP submarines do not have to continually move high temperature water and steam, so they are more silent than nuclear submarines (!). They also can stay under water without surfacing for a month or so… The contract was signed in 2016…

Suddenly, without any warning to the French, Australia decided to go nuclear, literally and figuratively, and announced its nuclear deal with Biden and cancelled the French conventional submarine contract.

The (implicit) presentation was hinted that the Anglo-Saxon subs were better. However the British attack submarines are not really British: their sensor and electronics are… FRENCH.

And the propulsion of the British subs of the Astute class, nominally by Rolls Royce is actually US American, under license. Plenty of other systems in the UK subs are US American. So the British subs of the Astute class are French and US American for their two most important elements: brains and nuclear power.

But it gets better than that: the Uranium the US uses in its submarines and its UK subs, is WEAPON GRADE (the French and the Chinese uses NON weapon grade uranium in their subs).  

So Deep State Biden is actually promoting NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION, WEAPON GRADE..   

Thus what is left is the truth: The US wants the Pacific to become a US lake, and New Caledonia is in the way, politically, geographically, strategically and civilizationally. More than half of the inhabitants of New Caledonia are Natives, demonstrating, once again, that France is too friendly to losers, and not oriented enough towards business… which, optimally demands maximal exploitation.

But not just this, it gets way worse: by unilaterally, without consulting with NATO, let alone Russia, China, India, Pakistan and Israel… Or Korea, or Japan, or Vietnam, or Brazil, and… Iran… The Biden administration is committing a major breach of NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION. 

Why would the US Deep State engage in such a deep, extremely dangerous international violation? Well, the obvious explanation is the only one visible, however troubling and despicable: the US Deep State WANTS NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS GRADE MATERIAL.   

Why? There again, the reason is disconcerting, but obvious: because it augments the probability of nuclear war. When the US fought the American Natives, it always had some on its side, at least for a while, and use them… against the other American Natives. The same method was used on a grander scale in the Twentieth Century: the US presidency and its plutocratic class, co-conspiring, encouraged the slightly demented leaders of Germany to attack in 1914, and then fed them materials for high explosives (among other things)… This made the Franco-British blockade much less efficient, and the war lasted 4 years instead of just one. After the bait, the US switched to the attack mode, intervening significantly in the war in the last few months, when French high explosives production was ten times that of Germany.

Something similar happened with Nazism. US plutocracy, discreetly helped by the Roosevelt administration (officially singing different tunes) encouraged, facilitated and enabled Nazism… Until the switch, massive aid to the Soviet Union, and Hitler understood he had been had and, enraged, declared war to the US in an act of suicidal bravado (Even before the United States entered World War II in December 1941, the USA sent arms and equipment to the Soviet Union to help it defeat the Nazi invasion… which it was simultaneously promoting through its plutocrats and their corporations; for example IBM had the monopoly of computation throughout Nazi Germany…)  

So now, here we are.

What’s the plan? Well, war, what else, between the Natives (whoever they happen to be)… The possibilities are endless, shifting alliances all over, just as during the French and Indian wars, and the 140 years after that… There has not been a real good war, with the biggest, most powerful weapons, since World War Two… What the Deep State of plutocracy needs, is nuclear war. 

You will tell me: this is monstrous, how depraved can you be? Well, not me, but those gentlemen, or, even worse, their subconscious. It is worse if what they are doing is subconscious, because they don’t even know what they are doing, but still do it. 

Meanwhile, France, very correctly, recalled her ambassadors to the US and Australia. This has never happened before. The hour is indeed grave: the US is getting rogue, conveniently hiding behind an apparently rudderless president.   

The US Deep State may feel: oh, you are overreacting, don’t you finally realize that you are all Indians?

The US Deep State forgets one thing: times have changed, the world has shrunk… And is more aware. When the US massacred the US Natives, the world was huge, and the US was conquering a continent. Canadians and Australians did the same, eradicating (most of) the Natives, with pack of lies and treason against reason but for the reason of rabid greed. However, now the world is small. It is a big village. Civilization is also pretty much one. China, for example, is, civilizationally speaking, strongly hybridized with Western European socialism… which the US is also hybridized with (consider Medicare)… Both giant countries, USA and China, although around the globe, on the other side, are on board with the technological, intellectual, and mental progressivism launched by the Franks after the collapse of the Roman state and which made the European Middle Ages the main motor of creation

That world coherence means there is no room for World War Three… Any world war now would have aspects of a civil war (not reassuring, considering US history!) Nor is it necessary to add another calamities to wake up from slumber: we already have several calamities on our hands, including the climate calamity… None of them are easy to fix, as they are entangled in industry, thus survival.  

It is high time to expose the US Deep Plutocracy and its Machiavellian tortuous conspiracies, where war among the others is leveraged for personal advantage… We need this exposition and explanation, so as to steer the future away from disaster.

As this enlightenment descends upon the planet, the US Deep State may find out that old allies may not share its enthusiasm for the the old White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) method of divide and conquer, eradicate and exploit. In other words if China does not engage in blatant worldwide aggression as the US of Biden is doing presently with its fostering of nuclear proliferation, it may find allies in Europe. Not everybody is so woke that they can’t wake up.

Progressives must mobilize to prevent Biden from introducing nuclear weapon grade uranium to Australia… Sneakily preparing conditions for a nuclear Armageddon: if Australia, a gigantic place without need, or enemies nearby, gets nukes, why not everybody?

Australia could mitigate the situation by ordering the Suffren class of French nuclear submarines: those French subs use NON weapon grade uranium for propulsion. They are state of the art, and arguably way better for Australia (they are way cheaper, and already exist).

The submarines ordered to France by Australia five years ago were the Air Independent Propulsion diesel variant of the brand new latest French nuclear attack submarine below:

The French Navy vessel called “Suffren”, first of the nuclear Barracuda class attack submarines, leaves the workshops of its construction at the Naval Group site in Cherbourg, France, July 5, 2019. Picture taken July 5, 2019. REUTERS/Benoit Tessier. These are enormous boats: look at the little worker to the right. They displace 5,200 tons. The UK and US submarines have 50% more mass. However that’s not necessarily an advantage as attack submarines are increasingly moving to LITORAL waters in which they are hard to detect from sound reflections, currents, waves, and also can better make their missions. The submarine above uses a hybrid steam-electric propulsion, steam for greater power, electric for greater silence…

US “Democrats” Destroyed Afghanistan; New York Times Part Of Plot Since 1979!

August 15, 2021

US President Carter, a so-called “Democrat”, attacked Afghanistan on July 3, 1979. The New York Times does not want its readership to know this, thus the NYT censored a comment of mine saying just that. This is a crucial piece of information: Carter did not just attack a country, Carter destroyed secularism in Afghanistan, and Carter also destroyed the Republic of Afghanistan. With that crucial piece of information: then Biden’s work, destroying Afghanistan some more, can be viewed as a continuation, a DEEP POLICY of the US “Democratic” Party. Here is the censored comment:

The US intervention in Afghanistan was launched July 3, 1979, by President Carter from advice of his National Security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Mr. Brzezinski said that the idea was to use Muslim Fundamentalists to destabilize the Afghan secular republic and force a Soviet intervention. The effect worked as anticipated, and then went further: Muslim Fundamentalists, worldwide, observed that they could get support from US strategists, and, given enough will and violence, could seize power, worldwide.

When the US intervened in 2001, it should have required just one thing: a return to the status quo ante… which was a SECULAR, decentralized republic. Instead the US established in Afghanistan an “Islamic” “Republic”, highly centralized.

“Islamic” is close to “Islamist”, conceptually, depriving the anti-Islamists from any moral ground. Centralization enabled corruption and the tyranny of Kabul, depriving the local tribal leaders of power, including military power, to resist the Taliban. Centralization also created a centralized army which depended huge mechanical power to exist. Air power left with the US army and US private contractors who made heavy US machinery function, from helicopters to armored personnel carriers.

So what is the interest of the present ignoble defeat? More war and destabilization. A war in which Russia, Iran and China will have to engage. Thus, this is very different from Vietnam. This is much worse. It was called “The Great Game”… between the UK and Russia. Now the “Great Game” will involve all of the world’s greatest nations.

The article was  “Taliban Sweep in Afghanistan Follows Years of U.S. Miscalculations
An Afghan military that did not believe in itself and a U.S. effort that Mr. Biden, and most Americans, no longer believed in brought an ignoble end to America’s longest war.

The article was by David E. Sanger and Helene Cooper. Sanger is the chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times. A 1982 graduate of Harvard College, Sanger has been writing for the Times for 30 years covering foreign policy, globalization, nuclear proliferation, and the presidency.

Sanger has been a member of two teams that won the Pulitzer Prize, and has been awarded numerous honors for national security and foreign policy coverage. He is the author of three books: Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power[1] (Crown, June 2012); The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power[2] (Harmony, 2009), which was a best-seller; and The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age (Crown, 2018).

One can see that Sanger is an established member of the war mongering, Islam manipulating clique in Washington. His greedy mind, thirsty for the White House, publications and Pulitzer Pluto prizes, sees clearly how dangerous it is if the readership of the New York Times becomes aware that it has been had for 43 years, killing a few million Afghans on the way. This sort of censorship makes the New York Times part of a holocaust which, although a bit more subtle than those conducted by the Nazis, is perhaps even more dangerous, because, not only it kills millions, but it threatens billions, as war brings wars, and also keeps under delusion of innocence most of the US population, while sneakily conducting mass murdering regressive policies in its name.

Individuals such as Sanger are respected. However, should one respect deliberate propagandists who help to kill millions? At least one such propagandist, Rosenberg, was condemned to death, and hanged (slowly) at Nuremberg. Why should not Mr. Sanger be condemned to the same fate? Oh, no tribunal yet? Why not? Because the USA never did anything wrong in Afghanistan? Just got attacked out of the blue? How come this delusion?

Because US citizens have been deluded into the lying feeling and erroneous knowledge data point that Afghanistan attacked them in 2001… whereas it is the USA which attacked Afghanistan in 1979 (and actually before that, using Pakistani secret services, and the Pakistani ISI as proxies…). Thank Mr. Sanger and his ilk, and the institution of the New York Times for that.

Biden says he loves women. It is a lie. The Taliban hates women in any role, but baby making machines… Yes, that was a link to the New York Times, supposedly the newspaper of record in the USA.

Now some will feel, and not dare to say: “Oh, Afghans are savages, let them be!” It is not that simple: the Taliban army attacking on May 1, 2021, weeks after Biden announced the US would run out of Afghanistan, like scared rabbits, no matter what, was no more than 75,000… A fraction of the 300,000 underpaid and unsupported Afghan army of 300,000. The capture of an entire civilization by a small but determined horde of gangsters has happened many times in history, the best example being the fall of the Roman State in the Fifth Century in Occident. This is generally rendered possible by an entrenched, manipulative plutocracy which sees the small army of invaders as an help to its own control. In the case of Rome, Roman plutocracy made deals with the invading Germans (or even Huns!) Biden and company made a deal with the Taliban. Explicit or not. And the interest is to renew Muslim Fundamentalist control, which has proven extremely profitable to the US plutocratic elite over the last century, and counting….

US censorship is not all about the New York Times, of course. Just today the monopoly Google made it hard to find in searches my own 1979 US ATTACK AGAINST AFGHANISTAN Secretly Ordered

To Foster Divisive Muslim Fundamentalist Rule

P/S: to quote the Wall Street Journal: “The scenes of triumphant Taliban fighters conquering city after city, parading their Humvees, artillery pieces and U.S.-made drones, have unnerved many of America’s allies. In an unusual criticism of America’s rush out of Afghanistan., U.K. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace described the Doha agreement in a Sky News interview as “a rotten deal” that “effectively told a Taliban that wasn’t winning that they were winning.”

Once Biden told the Taliban it was winning, and acted as if it was won, the Afghan army and population were submitted to the will of the US, and the will of the Taliban. So they surrendered, trying to save their lives.

Mayan Electric Fallacy

August 5, 2021

Making transportation electric doesn’t solve the CO2 crisis per se. Maya shows that wrong tech choices when facing ecological disaster, can bring an even greater disaster.

We need clean transportation. We could use hydrogen, producing water. In the present and foreseeable state of technology, using batteries requires huge mineral extraction, itself very polluting. The same fundamental elements used in batteries are used in windmills [1]… causing a penury effect if pretending to use batteries and wind as a mass solution. What needs to be made CO2 free is energy production. Discreetly governor Newsom, a democrat, signed an order so that California goes through heat waves much better, producing electricity thanks to fossil fuels, as windmills, solar panels, and desiccated dams can’t produce enough “clean” energy (solar panels are made in China, using coal as energy source). Ironically, when the winds peak up, so do the fires: California, hoisted on its own petard of outrageous energy consumption, is burning ever better, every year…

Batteries are heavy and it is not clear that the full life cycle of an electric car uses less energy than an ICE car (ICE = Internal Combustion Engine). And the point is to some extent moot, as there are not enough lithium mines to electrify the entire planet… By a factor of ten… or much more.

Confronted to a drought they themselves caused, the Maya responded by doubling over on the technology they had which caused the crisis. That caused a megadrought. Instead Europe and Japan in the fourteenth century, took strong ecological measures: they saved the forests by restricting activity… The Maya did the opposite, cutting sacred old growth forests, replacing them by orchards and corn fields. Disappearing the tropical rain forests fully, far from augmenting agricultural activity, had the opposite effect: temperatures shot up, desiccation occurred, as humidity went down.

Europe, as it is, thanks to carbon taxes, produces half the CO2 per person than the USA does. In particular from massive investments in public transportation in adapted cities. Electric cars are a luxury solution for crafty investors, not a solution for the planet at this point. We need a carbon tax which will incite to produce energy in a cleaner way.

Instead of a carbon tax, which would be unpopular, Biden is proposing on 8/5/2021 to spend 174 billion dollars on electric car charging stations… There is little doubt that spending 174 billion dollars on thermonuclear would enable a to make a thermonuclear reactor connected to the grid (the bigger the reactor, the easier the fusion).

174 billion dollars on charging electric cars… So that people can spend hours waiting in the middle of nowhere doing what they do now in minutes, while enriching the Chinese dictatorship and making Biden’s sponsors wealthier. This is an exhibition of a mix of dramatic ignorance, corruption and stupidification. And also contempt for those who go long distance without using aircraft. Of course, the entire enterprise is just smoke and mirrors, a “shared aspiration” as the auto executives plotting with Biden put it… So much smoke and mirrors that nothing will happen… An aspiration of smoke and mirrors… The latter lack of logical substance being exactly what the Biden puppet masters are after… Learn to become stupid, little, deplorable people, by respecting your great masters’ professed madness…

Nobody said Machiavellianism was straightforward…

So poor people of the USA, rejoice! Your great “democratic” leader Biden wants your tax dollars so that the wealthy can drive electric in silence and comfort between their private airports and their mansions! Who needs thermonuclear, when one can have caviar?

Patrice Ayme

When Maya civilization collapsed, Yucatan was covered with orchards and fields, causing a megadrought. The tropical rainforest came back, centuries later, after the few surviving Maya had fled to the coasts. Uxmal temple.

Three Types Of Tax Criminality: Legal, Illegal, And Unprovable. “Democratic Party” Corruptocrats Sponsor The Latter

July 24, 2021

Mathematical logic discovered three types of propositions: true, false, and unprovable. This conceptology applies to politics, and tax avoidance. The definition of the ultra-wealthy is that they pay, basically, no taxes… and it cannot be proven they paid no taxes. Some “Democrats” make a loud noise about increasing the budget of the tax agency, the IRS… “Catch all the miscreants!” This is, typically, disingenuous: the same “Democrats” organized the world tax system so that the wealthy, especially if fiscally in the US, pay no taxes. There is legal tax cheating, and illegal tax cheating: everybody knows this. But there is also an intermediate zone, unknowable tax evasion. The legal cheating enables potentially illegal tax evasion which considerably leverages the legal cheating. In other words legal cheating also creates convenient massive dark and grey matter which make the IRS job very costly, if at all possible, when dealing with wealthy tax evaders, and their armies of lawyers and accountants. So the IRS is discouraged to pursue the wealthiest, it just does not have, and could never get, the means to do so.

The obvious example is given by Delaware. The laws of the state of Delaware, thanks to a long serving “democratic” Senator, prevent the IRS from knowing what is going on… Delaware does not require companies to identify their beneficial owners when formed. Thus, although it is technically illegal for US citizens to use Delaware as a tax haven, it does not matter how much money the IRS has to find out if tax evasion has been committed or not: a wealthy cheater is protected in Delaware by inexpugnable secrecy. Any tax haven overseas is easier for the IRS to figure out than the “Diamond State”. 

This is why more than one million companies and two-thirds of the Fortune 500 and 90% of startups are based in Delaware… That’s right: more companies than people call Delaware home. In the present situation it is not just that it is easier for the IRS to persecute small taxpayers, it is nearly impossible to figure out what the truly wealthy really earn. That should be fixed first.

New triangular trade. The highest wealth value system involves “art”, old castles and other. Nowadays, Biden will sell you a painting for half a million, what the White House called “the right [for Biden] to make a living”. “Art” acts as a currency which escapes currency trading laws… That makes art very valuable to those who organize the planet, the plutocrats and their employed corruptocrats…

P/S: The preceding is a slightly extended version of a comment sent to Paul Krugman who published it immediately …are we friends again? Good. The Economist argued that the USA is “the Biggest Tax Loophole Of All”. Having launched and led the battle against offshore tax evasion, America is now part of the problem. 

Said the Economist:

“The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), passed in 2010, is the main shackle that America puts on other countries. It requires financial institutions abroad to report details of their American clients’ accounts or face punishing withholding taxes on American-sourced payments. America’s central role in global finance means most comply.

FATCA has spawned the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), a transparency initiative overseen by the OECD club of 34 countries that is emerging as a standard for the exchange of data for tax purposes. So far 96 countries, including Switzerland, once favoured by rich taxophobes, have signed up and will soon start swapping information. The OECD is also leading efforts to force multinationals to reveal more about where and how profits are made, and the deals they cut with individual governments, in order to curb aggressive tax-planning.

Because it has signed a host of bilateral data-sharing deals, America sees no need to join the CRS. But its reciprocation is patchy. It passes on names and interest earned, but not account balances; it does not look through the corporate structures that own many bank accounts to reveal the true “beneficial” owner; and data are only shared with countries that meet a host of privacy and technical standards…”

FATCA and CRS became weapons to impose domination of the USA, thus of the US based plutocracy which employs the US government.

Hillary and Bill Clinton set up two shell companies listed at “1209 North Orange Street” in 2008 and 2013. The names of the companies, but not their location, weret made public in tax filings released by Hillary Clinton in 2015.  “1209 North Orange Street”  is the locale for 300,000 anonymous shell companies.

One of the Clintons’ “1209 North Orange Street” companies is WJC, LLC, which was set up by Bill Clinton in 2008 as a pass-through for his consulting fees.

Another company at the same location, ZFS Holdings, LLC, was set up in February 2013, one week after Hillary Clinton left the State Department. Hillary Clinton received $5.5 million from her book publisher, Simon & Schuster, through the company. The Clinton Foundation also has three shell companies in Delaware, according to its financial disclosures released in 2015.

While campaigning in 2008, President Obama slammed the “Ugland House,” a five-story building in the Cayman Islands that is reportedly home to over 18,000 companies.

“That’s either the biggest building in the world, or the biggest tax scam on record,” said Obama. “Some of you may have just heard about these disclosures about outrageous tax havens and loopholes that super-rich people across the world are exploiting in Panama and elsewhere,” said Hillary Clinton during her campaign in 2016. She added: “Now some of this behavior is clearly against the law, and anyone who violates the law anywhere should be held accountable. But it’s also scandalous how much is actually legal.

Individuals with Trump Derangement will want to talk about him. But Trump’s tax situations are different. I used to be critical of Trump’s activities many decades ago. However, in the meantime I saw the dearth of housing in the most developed metropolises, the devastation it caused (homelessness, and distorted, racist housing markets)…. and I came to understand wealthy developers were necessary evils. However the “Democratic” Party (I belong to) has still not seen the light, and the dearth of ecologically and sociologically correct housing is the most blatant failure of the so-called “West” at this point… And has to do with the dominance of plutocrats, especially of the real estate variety.

Governmental All Encompassing Censorship Made Official. Thanks To Tech Monopolies, It Said.

July 18, 2021

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said people who are removed from one social media platform for spreading misinformation should face the same consequences across the board of the “Free Speech” society.

“You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others for providing misinformation out there,” she said during a White House press briefing on Friday.

Psaki also said social media companies, such as Facebook, should “publicly” share information about the “impact” of misinformation.

Except who decides what “misinformation” is? And what grave misinformation is? Biden, who spread misinformation for a decade so that the USA would go invade and occupy Iraq, kill dozen of thousands and practice waterboarding there? … For reasons having to do with the price of oil and just imperial ire?

Thus the Biden spokeswoman said, and repeated later, that, if someone is banned on a social platform, thus, by a private company, that person should be banned on ALL other platforms, by all other private companies. Thus, since I was banned for life from a few social platforms already 12 years ago, and some were then much larger than Facebook, I should be banned on all? And what of the New York Times which banned me for years, and has now, under new management, reinstated me? Are they illegal according to the Biden White House? 

[In the picture above, the health minister of the UK is kissing the multimillionaire woman he made his deputy, on taxpayers’ salary.]

All these bans against yours truly arose because yours truly had the impudence of correcting misinformation found on these platforms. The sort of misinformation which brought the death of millions throughout the Middle East. Misinformation can be in the eye of the beholder, at first sight at least. Daunting opinions viewed initially as “misinformation” can lead to productive debate out of which new truths can arise.

One “leftist” platform I was banned from was the Daily Kos…  that particular platform was founded by Kos, an ex CIA officer (about as left as US pseudo-progressives can go)… At the time I was called a “troll” there, for expressing dissatisfaction about Obamacare, finding it insufficient (and I was hated for telling the truth). But also I claimed the Democratic Party was manipulated by its wealthy sponsors… That was one “misinformation” too far… I did not even point out that a “leftist” site founded by the CIA seems to be an intrinsic contradiction: I was careful to not indicate to all these pseudo-leftists that they were basically CIA agents… unbeknownst to themselves… Or so they claimed.

Armed with a bachelor degree in English, but a competitive swimmer, Jen Psaki became close to Obama in 2008, serving as his secretary. I like the personal aspect of these things. Psaki was named Deputy Press Secretary. On  9 September 22, 2011, Psaki left her Obama position to become senior vice president and managing director at the Washington, D.C., office of public relations firm Global Strategy Group. She returned later to Obama, and then CNN. Psaki is a full member of the Deep State. She is apparently on three different salaries right now, earning perhaps more than half a million dollars a year for…violating the Constitution? This kind of career entangling personal relations should be unlawful, because they trade in access to the power of the few, and transcend the electoral process.

In Britain the Health Minister, Hancock, offered a taxpayer paid job to a similar multimillionaire public relation woman as his deputy. He was also having sex with her in his office and it was documented on government video. The Prime Minister’s office declared that the video was of public interest and should be released. Hancock resigned for not respecting his own office stringent social distanciation orders during COVID. The fact that multimillionaire influencers without any respect for the constitution fester in all Western capitals contribute to a lowering of what common people feel the constitution is about.

Biden has blamed misinformation for stalling U.S. vaccine rates, and suggested, “They’re killing people… they are murderers” when asked what his message was to the social networks for allowing misleading claims to spread.

“‘Misinformation’ is covered by the First Amendment. Under the First Amendment, all information, no matter how wrong, is protected by the First Amendment. That is why, for example, Holocaust deniers can say what they say (and why in countries such as France and Germany specific laws make the holocaust of the Jews  by the Nazis, or that of the Armenians by the Turks, a crime). Justice Holmes’s exception for falsely yelling fire in a crowded theater carves out the exception it does because the 100% certain consequence that will follow is that there will be an immediate stampede and, as a result, immediate death. 

Publicizing military information in wartime is also an exception to free speech. However, right now, misinformation on vaccines is greatly from derelict teaching by the state at school level. The First Amendment has to protect misinformation, otherwise, someone would have to decide what constitutes misinformation… And also because in some cases we don’t know how misinformed misinformation is. Saying that existing COVID vaccines are 100% safe is apparently itself misinformation (as health authorities have given warnings, most of them directed at the Astrazeneca-Oxford vaccine). 

As it is the government clearly cannot be given the power of determining what disinformation and misinformation are: that’s a direct route to dictatorship. But the Deep State has made the argument that a private company like Facebook is not subject to the First Amendment – which, of course, applies only to the government – Private companies can decide that someone is spewing false information and can decide not to give that person their time and means, their platform and access to their users.

However, first of all Facebook, with nearly three billion users, is not a private company anymore, but a world public utility, the world’s most prominent monopoly. The Facebook’s leader has been welcomed in the presence of ultimate leaders and palaces, all over the planet. If there was a world monopoly ever, Facebook is it; even the oil giants of the 1950s never had that sort of power

Secondly there is judicial precedent saying that using private companies to do, or say what the government wants in matters of opinion, is unconstitutional. Third, the platforms are not private companies anymore when they do what the government is suggesting them to do. That the government claims to be merely suggesting that the platforms ban people who spread misinformation but not requiring the platforms to do so, is a distinction without a difference… especially as the White House admitted they “worked closely”.

In other words, no isegoria and no parrhesia... This is outright sinister.

The way out is to establish an independent court of truth, debate and plausibility which would just give explanations, debates, recommendations and stars.

Debate rejuvenates society, just as fire rejuvenates a forest, by letting eternal truths stand bigger and stronger, by clearing the brush:

Greenhouse Crisis: No New Science, No Progress. Where Is The Science in Biden Climate Project? 

April 23, 2021

More than 174 billion dollars for electric cars does not impact the climate crisis. Yet it’s what the Biden genius is proposing. If anything, massive subsidies in electric vehicles make the ecological crisis worse: we would have to dig the entire planet for lithium all over, and it will not make a dent on overall CO2 production: digging requires CO2 production, oh Biden genius! (Instead, helping create a hydrogen infrastructure would be useful, all the more as much of the natural gas infrastructure can be repurposed that way; that was done in France in the distant past, for decades; 20% hydrogen mixed with CH4 works very well). 

The USA, as it does periodically, is displaying its future virtues in the matter of climate, giving the entire planet lessons. By now, everybody educated enough, and smart enough, and honest enough, should be able to understand that these US administration lessons are lessons in hypocrisy. Altogether, the US emitted more GreenHouses Gases, than all the jurisdictions which ever existed… Although China is now taking the lead, with one new coal plant a week or so; China installed 38.4 gigawatts (GW) of new coal-fired power capacity into operation in 2020; that’s roughly 30 large nuclear reactors equivalent in coal plants, in just one year: long live the Paris climate accord (for China to pollute as much as possible). 

This US virtue signalling is not just dishonest, but doubly dishonest, as usual: the emission of GreenHouse Gases (GHG) per capita has gone up in recent years in the US, from 16 tons up to a probable 18 tons in 2022. None of what Biden proposes will reduce this, as he refuses carbon taxes and carbon pricing, on a matter of principle. Not just this, but Biden proposes to cut the only leg carbon reduction rested on, innovation (by discouraging investments in new technology, by proposing the world’s highest capital gain taxes… Yes, the world’s highest… Above 55% in leading states…)

As it is right now, roughly 40% of emissions of CO2 are caused by 10% of humanity (Europe and North America). If there was a proverbial “equity”, worldwide, then CO2 emissions should be multiplied by ten (China is acting on this, and India rushing to follow… as is their right). Instead of wasting 174 billions on electric car, genius Biden should spend 174 billion dollars on (research in) thermonuclear fusion… That would enable to build a fusion production plant within a decade… Or then invest in 4th generation nuclear… or invest in an hydrogen economy. So why 174 billion on useless, polluting electric cars? Hey so that Biden friends can make money… This already happened under Obama. Friends, as early privileged private investors… Maybe AOC is on it? She liked those designer clothes… Surely Pelosi, that, we know for a fact is invested in the right stuff before companies go “public”…

By comparison, to the prospective emission of 18 tons of CO2 per person in the USA, France makes do with 5 (five) tons per capita. However, France paid a hefty price, in decreased GDP, lots of regressive taxation, and a chronic revolt (“Gilets Jaunes”, now discreetly cancelled by Facebook, the arbitrator of Thought on Earth). 

One can argue that the colossal increase of relative advantage in GDP per capita of the US relative to Europe has been caused by the advantage that enormous fracking brought to the US: the graphs are parallel

What else? Basically, the US gets its energy for free, while the Europeans have to perform like monkeys in a circus to get fuel (be nice to Saudis, be nice to Putin, be nice to the Americans, be nice to Chavez/Maduro, etc.) 

Biden scoffs all the way to the bank: fracking over 12 years of Obama-Trump has put the US ahead. Biden is ready to cash out. So Biden claims he will do great things about the climate… But without carbon tax nor carbon pricing, nor innovation. There will be giant subsidies for electric cars… One may as well subsidize lawn mowers. 

And where does the Lithium and other Rare Earths come from for all these batteries? China (see the one coal plant per week Xi climate plan, above). The Trump administration’s authorization of one lithium mine in Nevada (with approval of the local Native American government), brought three lawsuits: too much acid, too much water, to extract all this lithium. Better let the Chinese do it among Uighurs, in the Tarim Basin, we don’t want to pollute Nevada. And where does the electricity for electric cars come from? Fossil fuels, mostly. 

In super green California, sun and wind provided only 22% of the electric generation energy in 2019 (latest year). Notice the two words “electric generation”, they are crucial, each in its own way: exploring what they exactly mean will expose the gross lie: it’s mostly all smoke. Yet, California has made enormous efforts, and is basically the most energy efficient US state.

Coal is dying for reasons which have nothing to do with renewable energy, and that’s why coal died in Europe, well before the impact of wind and sun. Why are the US at 18 tons of CO2 per year per capita, and only 5 (five) tons in France?Because of the absence of major carbon taxes in the USA.

Digging a bit in the numbers of renewable energy is not readily done, because headline propaganda is very active, and people have little patience for the truth, which is rather catastrophic, and the opposite of headlines. 

If one looks at the total energy usage in California one realizes that electricity is just 15% of California energy consumption. Moreover, that electricity divides into 9% from electricity generated IN California, and 6%, imported from outside (a one million volt direct current line comes down from the states of Oregon and Washington, directly into Los Angeles. A similar line comes from the Hoover dam on the Colorado river in Nevada). 

California sun and wind is 22% of these 9% of total California energy made in California, as electricity. In other words, not even 2% of California total energy consumption is from renewable sun and wind! So much for the renewability of it all. Hot wind and smoke, all of it! In the same general mood of brazen fakery, private school addict governor Newsom of California announced today that the state regulators should evaluate phasing out all offensive rock oil production in the state by 2045 (California is one of the world top fossil fuel producing states).

As it is, even augmenting considerably renewables in say the South-West of the USA, which has plenty of sun and wind, changes nothing much to the GreenHouse Gases contribution: an enormous fossil fuel infrastructure has to be kept as a backup, for when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine, as happened in California last summer. If one built it, one will use it, this fossil fuel infrastructure, and as it is, it has to be used; there is not enough storage for the pitiful “renewable” production, especially with empty dams. 

To cut emissions of GHG seriously one has to replace fossil fuels by nuclear, fission or fusion (to reach places the sun doesn’t much, and there are many of those). Also, one has to do as Europe does, and institute huge carbon taxes. Ultimately, though, one has to have no illusion: the GHG crisis will require the mass deployment of new energy, nuclear and hydrogen (or hydrogen derived). One cannot pave the ground with solar panels, tear the landscape with transmission lines, and operate giant washing machines in the sky all over (windmills; the newest of which are taller than most skyscrapers). Only fundamental research in basic science will solve the planetary crisis of GreenHouse Gases. Innovation is key. 

Such misleading virtue signalling on the part of government is counterproductive, because it enables public opinion, its makers, and leaders to feel comfortable and think of other things. It reminds us of Catholic missions sent to better exterminate the Natives. But counterproduction is often what is exactly intended (I hope Machiavel covered that one).

Much of the “infrastructure program” of Biden targets “human infrastructure”, a laudable goal. But, once again, is it what is really intended? 

One should start with schools. The USA’s top schools used to be public (say in 1950). But now such schools are “defunded” (like the police) in the guise of “equality”. 

An indirect proof of that is the sight of politicians (including Biden and Obama, those loud “democrats”) getting their children in the most expensive private schools. In the same spirit of hypocrisy, public union teachers literally refuse to teach, while admonishing us for “accountability”. Some public teachers’ union leaders joined the fray by getting their children in… private schools [1]. 

What causes a dissonant cognitive mess in climate and infrastructure? Uncritical admission of irrealism in too much of the influential population. Biden talks the talk, but he walks in the opposite direction, while insisting he is going the right way. Media carefully don’t notice

Biden got the most votes than a US president ever got… followed by Trump. The difference in the number of votes was six millions… And of these six millions, 5.5 millions came from… California, this temple of hydrocarbons and plutocratic hypocrisy (where yours truly is located, in full view of San Francisco…) So basically, Biden is California, at this point: talking the talk, walking the other way. None of this is coincidental. The temple of hypocrisy voted for the great master of hypocrisy and dissonance…

[1] The head of a California teachers union has been blasted as a hypocrite after he was caught dropping off his 2-year-old daughter at her private preschool, since Spring 2020 — despite saying it was unsafe for children to be back in classrooms. “Meet Matt Meyer. White man with dreads and president of the local teachers’ union. He’s been saying it is unsafe for *your kid* to be back at school, all the while dropping his kid off at private school,” a group known as Guerilla Momz said on Twitter.

Meyer, president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, has fought for what he called the “gold standard” for the educators — saying the schools should only reopen to in-person learning when the teachers are vaccinated, among other criteria, KQED reported… Similar hypocrisy was demonstrated by the governor of California, who, while keeping public schools closed, sent his four children to private school. Hey, he can afford it; he owns eleven (11) companies, including a winery and a resort at the major olympic resort of Squaw Valley (soon not to be called “Squaw” because it reminds us that the natives were exterminated…)

America Was Always A Governmental Project

April 3, 2021

The colonization of the West Indies, Central and South America, but also North America, were all governmental projects manipulated by private individuals. The “Crowns” of Spain, France, Portugal, England (in that chronological order) financed them. And so it was for centuries: government first, organized everything. The myth that the “Free Market” colonizes all, and is the ultimate organizer was just a (self-serving) myth invented by US plutocracy to better colonized all. Wait, some will say, aren’t you contradicting yourself? No, century or so was a period when the wealthiest individuals in the world, US plutocrats, acquired a variable, but occasionally domineering level of control of the US government: cursus honorum, as the Romans used to call it, American style.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the government, in a real democracy (people-power)… Except for the flaws Athens exhibited in its short lived total democracy dominance (namely over-passionate, poorly studied, hubristic and intemperate decisions). Now Athens had a basic problem: it was not the domineering military power (Sparta was stronger on land, and Persia was immensely stronger on land, more than equal at sea). Right now, the West is domineering militarily. but democratically incomplete. Biden is trying to grow government. He can be exactly what the doctor ordered, IF done right (spending where government spending will change the future for the best).

Governmentalism, done right, is growing, and has to grow… Be it only because it works so spectacularly in China,while the “free market” is failing spectacularly in Europe (see the European COVID debacle; Europe did less well than China, or the US, the latter mostly at the origin of the vaccines, through Trump’s efforts).

Overall, since the Communists took control, China has been driven by smart (and violent) governmentalism… when the government intervenes in all ways. For example, the Chinese Communist Party intervenes decisively by outlawing marriage with close relatives (which bolster kinship). What the CCP was doing was to impose frantically laws similar to those of Western Europe. Western Europe, led that way mostly by France, had been, for two millennia, the prime actor of governmentalism. England, a subsidiary of France initially, was not far behind.

(I prefer the word “governmentalism”, to “statism” which is too… static. The most dynamic societies have practiced “governmentalism… but were, precisely, far from static. Landing on the Moon, a government project, was not static!)

In 2020, massive intervention of the US government in private research, through development funding and rewards brandished, brought the spectacular arrival of half a dozen vaccines (“Operation Warp Speed”). The European Union did nothing similar to what Trump did, brutal governmentalism. Instead Europe waited for private enterprise (much of it now financed by Trump or… Boris Johnson!) to come up with solutions. So Europe failed monstrously, and now depends upon Trump financed vaccines. Now this is not exactly about Trump: governmentalism and mercantilism (governmentalism applied to “free trade”) have always been American traditions.

The part of America which became the USA has long been a government enterprise. English America was first founded by the “West Country Men”, a group of famous plutocrats which had included Sir Francis Drake, who died in an American military expedition… and where King James I would be most prominent.  

The Erie Canal made New York the economic capital of the USA, displacing Philadelphia.

The English North American colony, the 1607 project, was founded by the Virginia Company, a joint-stock entity which was empowered by the Crown to govern itself… with the help of military officers (such as the fierce and experienced Captain John Smith who was part of the governing council). So, from the beginning, the North American colony was a joint military-government-investors venture. 

Biden wants to augment significantly government spending, in a reversal of the Reagan program of considering the government as the enemy. There are powerful antecedents to this: Roosevelt, Eisenhower, JFK and LBJ. Ike rose the marginal tax rate to 91% (a bit higher than Truman left it).

Nowadays, what needs to be industrialized correctly is the entire world. In particular, in the long term, no more fossil fuels, no more deforestation, no more environment killing plastics, chemicals, heavy metals, phosphates, etc.

This reconfiguration of the world economy can only happen at the direction of governments. Taxation, anywhere in the world, just as the economy, anywhere in the world, or democracy, anywhere in the world, is a global problem. There never was, and never will be, a free market as the adjudicator of all things economic: it is the government itself which is the adjudicator. The government determines what freedom is, and what the market is. 

Around 655 CE, the government of Queen Bathilde of the Franks ruled that trading slaves was unlawful: this restraining of the free market led to investments in education and higher technology, making Europe what she became: a fulcrum of progress and relative freedom… As usual the link is indicative; I do not fully agree with the description of Bathilde as given by Encyclopedia Britannica; in particular, the British encyclopedia lies about Bathilde freeing only Christians. Bathilde [correct spelling from contemporaneous 7C, Seventh Century Latin documents] OUTLAWED SELLING and BUYING SLAVES… Even from OUTSIDE FRANCIA: more exactly, a slave bought outside Francia was automatically freed when brought into Francia. The religion, ethnicity, gender and origin of the slave did not matter; the slave was freed. The Bathilde governmental policy of outlawing slavery did not just change the socioeconomy of Europe, but of the planet.

She outlawed slavery: Most important political leader of the planet? Ever?

All the great civilizations have been driven by smart governmentalism: Darius greatly improved the Achaemenid Empire by experimenting with the free market, while engaging in massive government spending in all sorts of infrastructure, canals, some underground, irrigation, communications, roads, state banking, a powerful navy, etc. China built a giant canal system, over millennia, and had a powerful educational system. Nowadays the most important spending should be research in fundamental science, something the “free market” and its greed can’t provide for… The world CO2 crisis can only be solved scientifically, not fiscally

Bidenomics consists, roughly speaking, of more of what I call “governmentalism”: large-scale public investment paid for with more taxes. 

The Biden administration infrastructure fact sheet alludes to part of that history, declaring that the plan “will invest in America in a way we have not invested since we built the interstate highways [Ike] and won the space race [JFK, LBJ].” I have long advocated to bring back the Dwight stuff — with much higher government investment as a share of gross domestic product than we do now, and also much higher tax rates on both high-income individuals and corporations.

The era of big government investment and high taxes on the rich coincided, not incidentally, with the US and Europe’s 30 glorious years the greatest generation — the post WW2 decades of rapidly rising living standards….

Public investment and progressive taxation in America in particular and the greatest civilizations in general goes back much further than the mid-Twentieth Century.

An example is the construction of the Erie Canal between 1818 and 1825. It imitated what the Romans and the French had done. When Marius’ legions arrived in Provence and waited two years for the savage German invaders to deign showing up, he occupied his soldiers by building a canal. The land which came to be known as France would keep on building canals, at government expense, for another two millennia. 

Unlike the privately owned canals of 18th-century plutocratic Britain, the original Erie Canal was built by the government of New York State, at a cost of $7 million (in 1818 dollars). This was carried out over the years 1818 to 1825. The canal is a 363-mile  (nearly 600 kilometers) waterway that connects the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean via the Hudson River in upstate New York. It connected New York City to the Great Lakes, and through Chicago, to the Mississippi system. 

The legislative act allowing bonds to be sold to finance the canals’ construction specified a maximum interest rate of 6 percent… apparently was the interest rate which the bonds actually paid. Over the period from 1824 to 1882 the total tolls collected amounted to approximately $121 million. This ranged from $300 thousand in 1824 to $4.5 million in 1862. Thus the canal paid for itself in less than twenty years.

Britain had immensely wealthy individuals and banks, the USA did not (both the US Revolution and presidents such as Jackson made sure to keep away European plutocrats and their banks). So governmentalism was a necessity in the USA. As a share of state G.D.P., the canal was probably the equivalent of  $1 trillion today

Big public role in infrastructure continued down the generations, and it was accompanied by a policy not of “Free Trade” but “Mercantilism“: the US government would mostly maneuver to advantage private enterprise and greed, at the cost of all and any notions, including basic decency or filial piety… for example profiting from World War One by selling to racist fascist invasive mass homicidal genocidal Kaiser Germany what it needed to keep fighting World War One, by evading the Franco-British high seas blockade; this caused great suffering and weakening of France and Britain, the parents of the USA.

The US government would send the US Cavalry, massacre and clear the Indians, and distribute their lands around the newly built railroads. Land grants enabled railway construction and universities. Teddy Roosevelt finished the Panama Canal (started by the French Ferdinand de Lesseps and his French banks). F.D.R. brought electricity to rural areas. Eisenhower built the interstate freeway network.

So what is today’s infrastructure to be built? Mostly fundamental science. We need to leap scientifically: COVID was just a little warning. Very sophisticated scientific advances (mRNA vaccines and Adenoviruses gene carrier vaccines) enabled to solve the crisis promptly. Meanwhile the climate and toxic crises are squeezing ever more the world ecology. After the enormous expansion of the world population, it is to be feared that, barring spectacular scientific advances, cannibalism may come back. After all, it was practiced in the original English colony of 1610 CE, not just the Donner Party of the Nineteenth Century.  

When India was created as a modern country, respect was paid to Islam: (wealthy) Muslim men were allowed to follow their religious edict, the Sharia, and marry several women. Meanwhile, China, duplicating Europe, was explicitly outlawing polygeny. So India was created with a low level of government intervention, the opposite of the brutal dictatorship of the CCP. India was then wealthier per capita than China. Now China is much wealthier than India in capital (but not in capita).

In 2015, the India Supreme Court found that secular law should apply to Muslim men too. Thus governmentalism has been on the rise in India… And so has been the economy. The smartest governmentalism implies the smartest laws, the smartest “free market”, the smartest tech and science, and the smartest driver of them all, the smartest smarts… The latter point escapes autocrats. As Biden (who has personal experience with them) pointed out, autocrats such as Putin and Xi think the world has become too complicated for democracy and requires autocracy. Well, it is democracy, democratic governmentalism, which created that more complicated, smarter world. Yet, yes, it is a fine line, sometimes democracy backfires, as Socrates pointed out luridly, indeed, there are all sorts of thin red lines not to cross. But, done right, democratic governmentalism can’t be beat.

A piece of advice: too much spending giving money directly to low lives, is what was started in Rome, and it brought only the opposite of what it claimed to want to achieve. Besides many “Republicans” may resist it (rightly). The way to improve civilization the most is through education, availability of work, and fundamental science. A consensus should be buildable in that perspective.

Life Is A Riot

February 19, 2021

 

THAT LITTLE RIOT… NOTHING. BUT THAT BIDEN IS WORSE THAN TRUMP, A BIGGIE.

So Trump was dis-impeached, the plan of preventing the President to run again failed. At least that way. The Demoncratic forces will have to find another way… Meanwhile the Biden presidency is proceeding… Along the lines set by Trump. This is very interesting in several ways: basic Machiavellianism at work, and also the global plutocratic forces having perhaps learned something important: China is not the Third Reich, Trump had got an important point there. Also Biden flew a B52 escorted by Saudi F15s: an other important message, this time to china’s would-be ally, Iran.

That little riot, around and inside the US Capitol, incompetently managed by the Capitol police, was not a coup… And Trump’s free speech to go out and fight has little to do with that major police failure… The Federal government had proposed to help, days prior, and the capitol police declined because of “bad optics“.

What was a sort of passive aggressive coup was that the so-called “Democrats” impeaching Trump quite a bit for more than 4 years, by accusing him of being a Russian agent. The opponents of the so-called “Democrats” will remember this continual impeachment (which drowned reality in an ocean of lies). What was much more of a coup was that those who conspired to invade Iraq, in violation of international law, were never tried… or not even suspected by the sheeple, thank to plutocratic propaganda!

Democracies have riots, it goes with the concept of the People Power (Demos-Kratia). Debate itself is the core concept of democracy, and “debate” means beating up completely. Agreed, in a civilization functioning optimally, it is best that individuals do not get hurt physically, or even psychologically… But the later is unavoidable: the Socratic method, as related by Plato, could be very harsh.

Progress means turmoil. The best way to generate better, that is newer, ideas is emotions, even passions, thus turmoil. Idea making means trouble making…

And thus trouble making should be cracked down upon only when clearly it violates the law.

And free speech ought to be rarely in violation of the law. When free speech goes too far, one should go the British route, the way the French used to do it, and have the police give a “warning”. And circumstances are crucial. Say somebody writes on the Internet:”Kill all whites!”. That’s different from a teacher teaching children with:”Kill all whites!”

Is that a coup? Or a comedy organized by a self-declared “Nordic Shaman” (pictured, with horns)

So that little riot was not a coup. In a coup, even a self-coup, the army is involved. When ignorant Trumpists marched on the Capitol, it is not them, the rioters, who got tacit approval of the army. Quite the opposite. The Capitol Police had declined the help offered by the National Guard. I have been in a country during a coup, that’s something else entirely. Or look at Myanmar/Burma last week for what a coup is. I have ALSO been in street riotting (many times, and not on the side of law enforcement). The Capitol Police was incredibly incompetent. Since 1871, no riot ever breached a serious public building in Paris… with much more numerous, powerful and determined demonstrations (including one where more than 100 individuals got killed). The lack of nerves of the US elite calling that little riot a coup is part of the “Manifest Destiny” problem, a kind of hypersensitivity of the elite for any inconvenience coming its way. The fact the present president is held, in cogent circles, as a criminal against humanity is not “whataboutism”. Only those who don’t mind killing millions of foreigners say such a thing. It never happened in the history of the US, and rarely in the history of the world. Do you have any idea of the monstrosity visited upon Iraq? Is it un-American to notice it? Why?

One can be wrong by deliberately ignoring right.US citizens do not know the US attacked Afghanistan secretly on July 3, 1979, to provoke a Soviet reaction in 1980… Under DEMOCRATIC saint Jimmy Carter. US citizens should learn this, it is a moral imperative, because the initiation of massive war by the USA in the Middle East, in several alliances with ultra violent Muslim Fundamentalists, killed at least 5 millions… and the mood of secrecy and viciousness presiding over this assault is still NOT suspected, let alone examined. One needs to learn about the fact US leaders engage in secret wars: it is a coup against humanity and a war crime. Because they could get away with that, US leaders could get away with various crushings of rights, within the US.

So where are we at? Biden, so far, is leaving the meat, the core, the essence of the Trump era… in place. All the changes, so far, are cosmetic. The border has become porous: in a few weeks, the invasion situation (3,000/day, it is said) will become obvious, and Biden will say:”Sorry, but we have to do something!”. Same story, basically with the pipeline. Magically, the economy is not free of fossil fuels. As long as Canada is allowed to sell its tar sand poison, it will be transported… Doing it with a pipe in as lesser evil. And the Paris Accord will not change a thing: if anything it encourages those increasing the most their pollution (China, India, Poland)… to do even more so. Not that they are culprit, really, it’s the absence of new technology which is the cause of the problem, and that’s where the real fix is (aside from taxing the most polluting activities).

In any case, something real progressives ought to keep in mind:

COVERT ACTION MAGAZINE.COMBiden’s Key Role in the Crime of the Century: The 2003 U.S. Invasion of Iraq – CovertAction Magazine

Biden has much to do, if he wants history to forgive him for inciting and helping to invade Iraq (among other global plutocracy friendly conspiracies he was a principal of). We have to wish him luck, but we will verify, step by step…

And the way? NASA’s Perseverance, the Plutonium powered robotic rover cum helicopter successfully landed on Mars. A magnificent success including entering the atmosphere at 11 kilometers per second, around 400 times per unit of mass the kinetic energy of the fastest bullet, followed by a deceleration of ten gs (ten times Earth’s gravity), then braking with a hypersonic parachute, followed by braking with rockets, and finally a “sky crane”… There is no way forward but with much more and much better tech.

In 1976, the two US Viking landers found biological activity in Martian soil. The results were disbelieved (that’s OK)… But then its was not tried to repeat the experiments… And that’s not OK. Indeed the experiments are so far unexplained. The original head of the Viking project now believes life was detected.

Some will scoff about the interest of finding life on Mars. But biology on Mars, if it exists, is sure to advance our understanding of biology on Earth. Science is like that: any experiment helps, positive or negative. Even the very humanly costly COVID experiment… helps. Helps whom, what? The essence of humanity, to go where no monkey has gone before…

Life is a riot…

Hedge Funds And Financial Bandits Financed Biden: The List

January 31, 2021

BEST PRESIDENT THUGS’ MONEY WANTED TO BUY. Read All About The High Finance Thugs Below!

Janet Yellen received $810,000 in speaking fees in 2019 and 2020 from Citadel, the hedge fund wrapped up in the Gamestop saga. Citadel has spent $240k per year lobbying Congress and the Treasury Department. The Gamestop story has thrown a light on one of the many ways in which the elite colludes. 

The collusion between immense financial wealth and politics is not new. President Jackson, a duellist with unextracted bullets in his body, the greatest general of his time, massive invader of a giant swath of what became the present USA, ethnic cleanser of civilized Native Americans on an epic scale, defeater of the British, declared on his deathbed that he was most proud of having kept the USA safe from European bankers. 

Well, they finally arrived through the backdoor… For example by secretly financing some American banks. This helped bring World War One, but was not really noticed. Next came the crash of 1929-1930, which ushered the Great Depression. The bankers had pulled the strings during the boom… but the politicians took the erroneous decisions, mostly by rising tariffs too brutally and letting everything collapse… In any case, bankers hated President Roosevelt, and he “welcomed their hatred” as he put it… FDR signed the Banking Act of 1933, repressing the financial plutocracy by separating speculative banking (investing in the financial markets), and industrial banking (investing in the real economy). However, under the reign of king Clinton I, the Banking Act of 1933 was greatly dismantled. The consequences were the collapse of an elite hedge fund, LCTM, which threatened the entire financial system. The Fed intervened, saving the system. The work of Clinton I came to light again in 2008, with a somewhat similar crash. This time the Fed , and kings Bush II and Obama I intervened and saved the wealthy, with taxpayer money, to the great applause of the ignorant Commons.      

President Joe Biden’s electoral campaign raised a known total of more than $1.6 billion that we know of so far, according to OpenSecrets (January 2021). This amount includes donations to his official campaign committee and outside groups like single-candidate super Political Action Committees and hybrid PACs. Many of those contributing to Biden belong to the Financial Plutocracy, the core of the Global Deep Plutocracy (the sort that already existed in the Sixteenth Century, when Francois I and Charles Quint, fighting each other, were financed by bankers… And the sort which financed the war against the French Republic in the Eighteenth Century, and their descendants which never seemed to have seen since something nefarious enough not to finance…)

During the Gamestop scandal, some financial institutions blocked trading to buy shares, advantaging massive hedge funds which were short. When Internet critters spoke about it, Big Tech shut down their babbling… Because it is nefarious to the elite, by suggesting that the elite conspires, which, obviously it does on a planetary, global scale. Not much of that Internet censorship differs in essence upon what is done in the Chinese dictatorship. The only difference is that in China, it’s the government which represses, whereas in the “West”, it’s the bandits themselves, without any pretense at governance, as they claim to be driven by greed… Whereas the Chinese Communist Party claims to be driven by its desire to make We the People thrive (and can justify this to a great extent!)

Where Is Big Money Funneled?

Large donations in U.S. presidential elections are directed toward super PACs (super Political Action Committees), or hybrid PACs because of the $5,600 limit on how much an individual can give to a candidate’s official campaign committee per election.

Priorities USA Action, a liberal, hybrid PAC in its fifth election cycle, has received the most money of any pro-Biden, single-candidate organization. Millions of dollars have come into the PAC from the affiliated Priorities USA nonprofit, but since it doesn’t disclose donors, it is a “dark money” group: we can’t be certain who contributed to it. Biden supporters may also give to joint fundraising committees set up for the presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee like the Biden Victory Fund and Biden Action Fund.

Top Industries

The biggest industries represented among Biden donors are (thuggish) Finance, Securities & Investment, and Internet plotters, known as “Big Tech”.

The following were the top donors to the Biden 2020 election cycle, according to processed Federal Election Commission data.

1. Donald Sussman, Paloma Partners – $9 Million

The founder and chief investment officer of hedge fund Paloma Partners, Sussman has been a long time major donor to Democrat candidates. He gave to the Priorities USA Action and Pacronym political action committees. What is the problem with hedge funds? First only the hyper wealthy have access to them. OK, next donor, and here comes evil so deep, most people are never heard about it, as they pursue their enslaved low lives:

2. James Simons, Euclidean Capital – $7 Million

Jim Simons, a mathematician of definite renown (“Chern-Simons differential form”), co-founded the legendary, but all too real, hedge funds of Renaissance Technologies. Renaissance was founded in the 1980s by Simons and other mathematicians (who crucially contributed mathematical trickery). Simon, an award-winning mathematician and former Department of Defense code breaker, is known as the “Quant King“. 

The idea is actually extremely primitive: it consists in stealing people before they know it. As the idea is rather embarrassingly simple, pigeons do this everyday to each other, it is hidden below a mathematical mumbo-jumbo to make the naive and easily dazzled, believe in wizzardy. All what Simons and his henchmen do is to process massive trades a tiny bit faster than everybody else, while leading the market where they want it to go (by using their size and an arsenal of tricks). 

This sort of trading is thoroughly unethical that it should be unlawful, because it is a sure way to transfer more wealth to the wealthier, by giving a systematic trading advantage to the wealthiest. From there to systemic racism, there is a distinction without any difference. Thus, Simons is a revered figure, especially among mathematicians (he gives them crumbs, founding an institute… where I was hosted, sort of). Simons gave to the Priorities USA Action and Unite the Country political action committees.

3. Deborah Simon, Retired – $6.1 Million

Her father was the late Melvin Simon, the co-founder of America’s largest mall operator, Simon Property Group. This self-declared friend of man, “philanthropist”, gave to the American Bridge 21st Century and Unite the Country political action committees. Her sister Cynthia also donated $1.75 million.

4. George Marcus, Marcus & Millichap Co. – $4 Million

The billionaire real estate magnate is the founder of Marcus & Millichap Company and chairman of Essex Property Trust. Last year he co-hosted a fundraising event for Biden, and he has contributed money to the Priorities USA Action, Unite the Country and American Bridge 21st Century political action committees.

PPP On September 23, 1998, the chiefs of some of the largest investment firms of Wall Street—Bankers Trust, Bear Stearns, Chase Manhattan, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, and Salomon Smith Barney—met on the 10th floor conference room of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York 

5. Michael Moritz, Sequoia Capital – $3.5 Million

The Welsh native is a partner at venture capital firm Sequoia Capital. He’s also an author and former tech journalist. The venture capital firms and Silicon Valley in general have been operating in concert with the US Deep State. They too use tricks which should be illegal (founding startups which are bound to get sure contracts with Big Tech down the street, in exchange for what are basically kickbacks…)

It is better than the anti-innovation attitude of the Roman imperial state… But not that much better. After all, Louis XIV financed the famous physicist Huyghens… And this sort of pseudo-intellectual pseudo-goodism may have persuaded Louis he was a good person, enabling him to engage in repression against Protestants, which brought tremendous wars which were catastrophic for civilization and Europe in general and France in particular. Moritz gave to the Pacronym and American Bridge 21st Century political action committees.

6. Kenneth Duda, Arista Networks – $3 Million

Duda is the co-founder, chief technology officer and senior vice president (software engineering) at cloud networking solutions provider Arista. He gave to the Pacronym and American Bridge 21st Century political action committees.

7. Seth Klarman, The Baupost Group – $3 Million

Billionaire investor Seth Klarman is a longtime independent and has given to the Republican Party in the past. “I’ve seen meaningful numbers of people put aside what would appear to be their short-term economic interest because they value being citizens in a democracy,” he grandly told The New York Times in August. He gave to the Pacronym, Priorities USA Action and Unite the Country political action committees.

8.Reid Hoffman, Greylock Partners – $2.5 million

Hoffman is the co-founder and former executive chairman of LinkedIn. The billionaire tech investor is currently a partner at a venture capital firm. He backed Alloy, a data exchange platform for the Democratic party which will begin to wind down its operations next year. He gave to the American Bridge 21st Century and Unite the Country political action committees.

9.Stephen Mandel, Lone Pine Capital – $2.5 million

Mandel founded hedge fund Lone Pine, which has an excellent long-term track record. He was among the top 10 highest paid hedge fund managers in 2019, with an income close to $1 billion. He gave to the American Bridge 21st Century political action committee.

10. Phillip Ragon, Intersystems Corporation – $2.5 Million

Also known as “Terry,”Ragon is the founder and CEO of private healthcare software company Intersystems. He and his wife, Susan, have signed The Giving Pledge, a trick to persuade the Commons that the plutocracy will redistribute all its money to them: so no need to tax plutocrats, aka “philanthropists”. Ragon gave to the American Bridge 21st Century political action committee.

Other Biden Loving Plutocrats:

Renaissance Technologies director Henry Laufer and his wife, Marsha, together contributed $4 million to back Biden. Stewart Bainum Jr., the chairman of Choice Hotels International, gave $2 million to the Unite the Country political action committee.

Big donors from the media industry include director Steven Spielberg and his wife, Kate Capshaw, who together gave $2.5 million. Jeffrey Skoll, the first president of eBay and founder and chairman of Participant, which has produced more than 100 feature and documentary films, gave $2 million. Family Guy creator Seth Macfarlane donated $700,000 and media mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg gave $200,000. Kathryn Murdoch and James Murdoch, son of News Corporation executive chairman Rupert Murdoch, together contributed $1.6 million. That’s called hedging, in case you wonder. The demolition of Donald Trump by Fox News’ “moderator” Chris Wallace in the first presidential debate looks less of a coincidence in this light….

Is Biden hopeless for progress? Not necessarily. As he put it long ago:

Politics is a damn expensive business. I had one hell of a time trying to raise money as a candidate. I had to put a second mortgage on our house to get that campaign started, and I ended up spending over $300,000 to get elected. I believe that public financing of federal election campaigns is the only thing that will insure good candidates and save the two-party system. It is the most degrading thing in the world to go out with your hat in your hand and beg for money, but that’s what you have to do if you haven’t got your own resources.

Well, it’s not just about little Biden getting humiliated. This is about the planet. When vicious thieves become the wealthiest, most influential persons in the world, we get a world founded on vice and thievery. No way to ensure the survival of civilization, being guided by the most despicable. This is a lesson to meditate worldwide, including with the Russian and Chinese dictators.

These bandits did not steal pizza slices. They stole the future.

Fake Left, Fake Free Press, Tools Of The Plutocratic Conspiracy

January 17, 2021

The Cancel Culture Is A Form Of Violence:

The tribalism encouraged by Internet behavior and lack of overall education is bearing its poisonous fruits. All too many people say whatever, insulting individuals and attacking them… Instead of insulting and attacking specific ideas after cogently deconstructing them. Such a behavior ad hominem hatred, instead of intellectual debate guarantees the progress of hatred and other basest instincts, instead of furthering intelligence and consideration.

I have seen people calling me names completely opposite to what I believe and write about. Why do they do this? Need to hate? Or simply an aspiration to simple basic animalistic passions? Instead of sophisticated reasoning founded on precise facts, an increasing number of writers attack others for mysterious “code words”, “dog whistles”, not being “woke”, to be “cancelled”, etc.

One does not even know what they are talking about, except for their will to alienate others, after making sure they know they are horrendously despicable persons the world is better without… In other words, they prone violence. Violence of the old racist behavior, exclusion, rejection, alienation, in other words…We have arrived at the point where difference is confused with violence. Alarmingly, this is coming from a fake left financed by plutocrats… Fake left financed by plutocrats happened with the USSR (Lenin said it himself, Stalin confirmed), and other fascist regimes (Mussolini, Hitler, Franco…).

No Free Press, Only Plutocratic Press:

Just concentrating on financing of “right wing” media by plutocrats diverts attention from the worst problem, the financing of the fake left, the fake opposition by the same, or alternate plutocrats.

An example. The Guardian, long ago, decided to ban my comments. Reason? I was a… Jihadist (they outrageously claimed). True reason: that element of the fake left media got secretly 50 million dollars from the Gates of Hell… who do not like me very much, for excellent reasons (BTW I am NOT found on Bing for things written in the last 12 years). OK, everybody needs to eat.

Biden keeps on saying that Trump attacked the “Free Press”. This statement, that there is a “Free Press” is itself a piece of propaganda of the Plutocratic Conspiracy (PC), aka, Davos Elite…. And that denial is itself an evidence of said Plutocratic Conspiracy. Only somebody from the fake left elite would say such a contrafactual thing.

For example, for opposing the Iraq invasion, I was banned for more than 13 years from the New York Times (although a full subscriber writing only polite and cogent comments!)

There is no such a thing anymore, as the “free press”. There is the PLUTOCRATICALLY OWNED OR INFLUENCED MEDIA. Any media with a modicum of awareness and honesty has to admit to this. Real progressives will recognize the fact and ponder how to get out of this. Maybe by organizing a sort of permanent TRUTH & RECONCILIATION Commission a la Mandela… but on all important subjects?https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/does-gates-funding-of-media-taint-objectivity/

The elephant and pony show. Just watch the cute pony and the bad elephant, little sheeple, and learn what you are supposed to learn through what Biden insists is the “Free Press”! Remember: if you start to make a theory about a conspiracy, call 911, you are obviously deranged.

When exposed to this sort of evidence, the sheeple bleats, hoping to contradict me with the insult that I smack of a “conspiracy theorist“. Well, any criminal activity committed involving a corporation is a conspiracy (learn, oh, you who don’t want to learn!) And plutocrats and their corporations are not going to tell you what they plotted, and howl to high heavens that they are good, and only “conspiracy theorists” conspire with conspiracies.

Who knew of “Jedi Blue” the conspiracy of Facebook and Google to dominate advertising? It is only surfacing because ten states, led by Texas, are pursuing criminal charges. Today, January 17, 2021, the New York Times finally mentions it. It was inconvenient to the Trump hating crowd that it was Trump who sued Google. The suit for “Jedi Blue” mentions the word “antitrust” twenty times.

A Bad Dream: Dream On, Demented Dems Tell “Dreamers”

So we hear that Biden will come up with plenty of executive orders on day one, the method I had recommended to Obama, 12 years ago. (Obama opted for purely symbolic orders, with no consequences, aside from cutting hydrogen research, which set us back a lot, although under Trump, hydrogen research was re-established… but not enough…).

Executive orders is the way to… do something. Congress can follow by transforming those orders into law. One of the orders would address “Dreamers”, children brought illegally to the USA, who grew up in the USA. Would I be president, I would order that, if they speak enough English, have a (potential) job, arrived as small children, went to recognized schools, they be given US citizenship, right away. Why not? … after the usual questions asked to immigrants…although that could toughened up (as it should for all new immigrants).

That the “Dreamers” problem was not solved under Obama is an evidence of the fake nature of the pseudo-left. Not to understand the inhumanity of not giving citizenship to children brought up in the USA is beyond the pale.

So why did the demented Dems do this? Do they think that those who want the decent thing to be done are just dreaming? That it is enough to dream? Are they just going to keep on talking about “Dreamers”, not doing the decent thing, ad vitam eternam, to make the Republicans look bad?

We Will Control What You Learn, So You can Be What We Think; The Case Of The Roman Plutocracy:

Fake everything is the way to go if one wants to make people ever more stupid. Beyond some threshold of stupidity in We The People, plutocrats have only to fear other plutocrats, in other words, plutocracy is stable: this is how Greco-Roman civilization collapsed. This was achieved exactly as it is tried to be achieved today: by a mastery of all and any of the media. In the Fourth Century, the media was in papyrus rolls. So the Christians destroyed libraries, and threw out of teaching, or killed secular teachers as heathens.

In 389 CE, a Christian mob led by Pope Theophilus of Alexandria  destroyed the Serapeum of Alexandria. All forms of pagan religion were suppressed under decree of the Roman emperor Theodosius I in 391 CE. Half a million scrolls were destroyed (more than 100,000 books). Sheeple may bleat that, once again, I am after Christianism… Yes, but not just that: actually membership of library of Alexandria had been suspended in 260 CE, and th gathering of books well before that. So one sees that the impulse, by the Roman dictatorship to control all the media predated by centuries, the establishment of the fanatical Christian theocracy, which was, therefore, the ultimate achievement of this process.

And who controlled the Roman dictatorship? Well, Roman plutocracy. Remember that dinner under emperor Domitian with Rome’s wealthiest men around the table, including Domitian? They all agreed it did not matter if some of them had to be assassinated: had they not slipped into one conspiracy too many, they were still friends, conspiring into the sharing of power was what they did. Roman plutocrats also practiced philanthrocapitalism, a propaganda trick to make themselves look good to the sheeple. The New York Times opined, eight years ago, that it would be difficult for plutocracy to hold back populism. But that was before control of the media, including the Internet, got into high gear. Now populism is held back, by increasing cretinism, though controlling what the public is exposed to . So Biden will keep promoting the idea that the most prominent crime is to harbor any suspicion against the “free press”, and to dare attacking it.
