Putin’s June Master Scam

I dare anyone to tell me they have not seen a news report about Putin being weak or Putin’s reputation damaged because of the recent “chaos” in Russia. How did this narrative take hold? It’s all bullshit. This head of Wagner group (No, I’m not going to learn to spell his cursed name!=) we will simply refer to as Joker, and explain why.

The telltale sign that I am right about this is if thousands of Wagner scum join Joker in Belarus! Simply said: If the Wagner Group had suddenly decided to bivouac in Belarus, alarm bells would scream in Kiev; in the Pentagon; in NATO Headquarters. A new front in east Ukraine would be possible – obviously! No, these are gangsters we’re dealing with. Putin has shown he’s willing to try new tactics, regardless of lives. Why not a whole charade of a Putsch in the Kremlin, a march on Moscow? Who knew about Joker’s plan? It was top Russian generals who would be enthusiastic about a new tactic. Top generals who are only a call from the Kremlin. But didn’t people get killed, real Russian soldiers? Yes, absolutely necessary to make the plot believable. So obvious for Russians it could be scripted. This is an army that sends poorly trained conscripts out in open battle with no chance whatsoever, just to pinpoint where Ukrainian troops have their machine guns placed. In reality, Wagner forces, vehicles are already well on the way to Belarus. Without this whole ruse, everyone would be aware and speculating about a massive Wagner forces relocation.

Another reason for a plausible basis to send Wagner to a country, Belarus, per secret agreement w/Putin is that country might be ripe for … social unrest. Putin already has had to send in troops to Belarus to hold up this clown president. This time it is Wagner and nobody even notices. But for the Russian side, this is better. Wagner specializes in terror, brutality, efficiency. The longer the war goes on, the more restless the people in Belarus become. It may take that brutality to keep Belarus in check. Maybe Putin really was scared of the Joker as a legitimate threat and is giving him Ukraine as consolation prize? We don’t think so. The Joker always lauds Putin in glamorous terms. The Joker just wants (present term!=) a bigger role in the Russian military gravy train. He initially wanted the jobs of the two lackeys that Putin has in charge of the military. These two scapegoats will eventually be blamed anyway when Russia loses.

But – to end on a really negative note – it all doesn’t matter really! Peter Zeihan talks a lot about these choke points into Russia & how Russia is now trying to go out and secure them. These are mostly gaps in landscape not conducive for tank movement. But why not build a barrier? If the Russians blow up the biggest nuclear plant in Europe, located deep in Ukraine, the whole country of Ukraine (& some) will become a radioactive buffer zone to Moscow. Extreme, but concisely efficient. Please realize that Putin realizes it is over for him anywhere outside of the Kremlin. If he didn’t become Peter the Great incarnate, he is still going to do everything to remain “Capo Oligarcho” & #1 gangster political figure in Russia.

Ukraine War (2)

In the first article about Abrams tanks, someone mentioned they can go 500 km or miles… forgot. But later someone mentioned miles: 300 of them. One can easily envision an afternoon excursion almost 100 miles deep into Russian territory and spend an hour (another 100m fuel) shooting up… a military stagion depot, any airport w/ a military target. Smoehow – almost regrettably – the Ukraine military refrain from the same uncivilized carnage the Russian inflict on civilians. The Russians will not be constrained until they feel the loss, when a sizable segement of the population is killed. This will, of course, be the 500,000 currently (Feb,23) being recruited or trained.

We would be most disapointed if currently there are not Ukraine pilots training on F-16s. Why F16s ???? In the big picture they are the equivalent of the Leopard2 tank: made in numbers by an ally & sold widely to many other countries & in reasonable quantities to support maintenance programs. The latter being friendy enough to Western interests & democratic ideals to qualify to buy them. Some of them will band together and form an alliance of sorts and insist that the US also take part, just like Germany reserved last OK for the tanks.

NOTE: In the tank deal, the US threw in something “new”. That is, with this behemoths burning aviation fuel in a damn jet engine to get enough power to take them to a dragstrip, this represents a sort of “icing on the cake”. Now in reference to F16s, a small addition of some A10s would be superb in the coming narrative. The US has developed more advanced models recently & more than few of the “older” models would be a good addition.

The Ukrainians don’t even have to go to Russia, a forbidding landscape for vast swaths, to kill attacking Russians. The Russians are making themselves available, literally for slaughter, locally – all 500K of them!!


To end this war we refer to Peter Zeihan, who says Russians have only accepted defeat when a vast, ie V A S T, number of casualties were inflicted on them. Let it be! The Russians/Putin have started a war & put us all in commercial difficulty, but a clear understanding among the modern world – with devastating problems so much more important than a war-criminal, gangster, neurotic 19th century dictator – that if that – mass death – is necessary for this tragic, senseless war to end, so be it!

Putin .. hubris … a tragic figure on the world stage: Putin has amassed a financial fortune, so much as to be a fanatic king of all the oligarchs. But Putin is a ganster, a severe lack of morality seems to run with dictators. He saw himself among the world’s most powerful leaders, a kingmaker. Gangsters self-justify their immoral life by believing that everyone else is a gangster. Anyway, something has occurred to us…

Referring to and justa-phrasing Peter Zeihan, who states that both Putin & Xi have very much isolated themselves. We would say more crudely pretty much like mob bosses can’t trust anybody.

Well, does this mean that the communication between these two is the mainstay of the daily entertainment schedules of these two dictators? More on that later…

Ukraine War (1)

Well the tanks are rolling – and it feels good! The follow-up scenario will mimic the tank saga, but will be for F16s and different countries in the roles. Now the US instead of Germany; as the mass producer of F16s; will face a host of assorted countries, NATO & otherwise who will be willing to give their planes to Ukraine. Again to build a coalition, the US will though more willinglingly take part.

Abrams tanks should build additional Ukainian jet fuel infrastructure which will come in handy when F16s arrive.

But before we get lulled into this feel-good moment because we know that the West will supply whatever it takes to win this war, let us reflect if there is something missing in the bigger picture. To wit: Putin knows the war is getting difficult. Escalating to nukes doesn’t bring anything except total calamity. But a million Americans died of Covid. Why not Putin get a batch of better stuff from the Chinese & send people out to spread it in the USA. The mass Russian propaganda apparatus can spread even more disinformation & weird conspiracy theories.

If Putin is capable of sending people out to poison different people all over the world, why not a step further & poison enough that it causes social upheaval. Such would be truly Asymetrical warfare!

Elon Musk mea culpa

We’re really feeling foolish about ravings for Mr Musk…. most likely talented engineer, but just another MAGA guy sprouting endless population growth, busines growth…

Pertaing the Twitter saga we are reminded of the original Peter’s Principle: people get promoted to their level of incompentence. Of the many successful Musk enterprises, they seem to encompass the technical, the objective manipulation of data & tools. In essence: making stuff. Even PayPal is an IT project handling clear defined transactions. With Twitter you’re dealing with people – a LOT of people. Besides the programming, now you have involved interfacing with a LOT of users.

Was going to quit, but … what the heck! Starting a series about Ukraine War, seems to be all-encompasing living here in Europe.

2022 or NEVER!! Part 3: Democrats

It’s all important to emphasize that it is Democrats & democrats[i] together in this fight. The word “party” as in Democratic Party should be strictly avoided as: 1. It brings up negative images of the party machine as in times past w/corrupt party machines; Clinton Foundation financing… 2. It detracts from the image that this is a popular uprising against tyranny by a wide swath of the populace, regardless of otherwise political affiliations.

To give you a sense of the urgency; the importance of the midterm campaign, allow us some remarks about the 2024 presidential campaign. Pres. Joe won in ’20 & we are forever grateful! But now he is considered weak, even though many circumstances he has no control over & others are simply being sabotaged by Republicans.  Rivalry has always been intrinsic to political powers, but to base a whole platform, the purpose & zeal of an entire Republican party to harm, block the opponent EVEN WHEN IT HURTS the COUNTRY, EVEN WHEN IT HURTS the PEOPLE seems ludicrous, yet goes unnoticed by many. Instead Pres. Joe has to see low scores on evaluation surveys. Nevertheless we feel an overwhelming sense in the American populace that this war, and as tragic the war crimes in Ukraine are, we mean the global war; the global problems of inflation, food short supplies and that we need to vote some rational people in office to tackle them.

Ok, what to do about it all? Answer: make a “run-around” play; make the 2024 Democratic Presidential Nomination Convention the “biggest show on Earth” & simultaneously blind-side the Republican hate machine!

Ok, how do you do that? Answer: Let Pres. Joe announce that he will not run for re-election & he will support any of the candidates coming out of this convention. And by convention we mean a real national convention with all the pageantry of presidential national convention, it needs to be now – BEFORE the mid-terms!!! That deflates all the hype about usual mid-term swings. Look, Joe’s old, people are scared (more on that later), Republicans via FOX et al  propaganda have invested all their hate directly on him personally. Such a convention negates the massive negative efforts to smear Pres. Joe; Republicans will have to start with new crazy stories. Presidential candidates could get an early name awareness.

This convention has to stress 1 single all-important topic: the fight against tyranny! It’s already about 2024!! The battle for democracy is present, it is now! That should actually be pretty simple, pretty obvious, but it needs to be elevated as the all-important conspicuous public debate. (For some of us here it is, obviously, but we are talking national strategy here.) That in turn, means a lot less of the 2020 Presidential Campaign type blah-blah of single candidates fighting each other about how to finance this or that; what they wore or said at the high school prom 30 years previously. This needs to be an almost orchestrated cascade of candidates expounding how they each can better win over Putin, over China (WW3, the economic version, will be in full swing by then), preserve here & restore democracy elsewhere in the world. That happens to be also the wy to solve the problems of fuell costs, food costs. The convention needs to be the equivalent of years of name-recognition building for a kick-ass, dynamic person. Pres. Joe was the right person – balanced, calm, professional – to collect all those anti-Trump votes in ‘20. Now we are at war! The public image Democrats need for the 2024 campaign is NOT someone going into their 80’s!! Simply someone who talks, but also looks like they can kick some ass, as oversimplified as that sounds. Pres. Joe has spent a lifetime to become el Presidento, let him enjoy it, take a winning record 1 for 1, with him & become another exPresident, even a very influential one.

But back to the midterms: Yes, a few loonies like the current Karen sisters in Congress may get through and continue to be a side show, maybe even some of the Putin enablers in the Senate, but overall people will recognize they need rational people in charge of government. These are trying times and not place for people with their heads swimming around in fantasies or actively working against the interests of America. There we think will come the golden moment when Democrats actually build on their numbers, allowing Pres. Joe a strong hand in the last 2 years, maybe even a few SCOTUS appointments.

May 1 (2022) is coming & war crime despot Putin has dug himself in a hole. We would not be surprised to see a tactical nuke dropped on Kiev. A truly spectacular finale for the big Moscow May Day parade. We could go on, but the point is that this war is going to continue otherwise. Stress levels are high. People will tend to be more cautious & sober. Republican crimes , lunacies, absurdities get most of the press these days, but let us not forget the actual gigantic 2020 voting numbers. The MAGA types are slowly waking, their delirium weakening & the millions upon millions more who voted for Pres. Joe are exactly those who recognize the severity of our current state of affairs.

We predict a massive voter turnout, with even better margins; overwhelming numbers for Democrats as was the case in the 2020 presidential vote.

[i] Just in case…. Big “D” -> formal name, capitalized (Democratic Party members), little “d” is just any person who believes in democracy.

2022 or NEVER!! Part 2: Republican Party

Ok, so the Republican Party apparatus in many states & even nationally has been hijacked by a bunch of loonies, but the Trump lunacy is actually on the decline. And the remaining loonies are starting to make an impact: ironically, showing undecided people exactly how crazy & chaotic things can become if these loonies are not stopped. That’s not to say it won’t be a major effort necessary to get the vote mobilized. Now that people are starting to realize we are at war with Russia, the mid-terms should be about loyalty. It is much more serious than people generally recognize! Any U-tuber should be able to notice a markedly more Soviet-style propaganda campaign. Supposedly economic sites now screaming The END!!, pouring pessimism on any & all things. Some we speculate are even sleepers: first gather users with a lot of click-bait & regurgitated news and waiting…until called.

(Note: Facebook we never even started. In their blind quest for profits, they’ve long ago crawled in the hind crevace of Putin’s propaganda machine. Along with other hate, trash & porn, just not worth it.)

Of course, this loud, total, public adoration of Czar Putin by Fox News et al & of course the Orange Glob brings a whole new element into play. Will all the conspiracy madness, massive misinformation, support of anti-democratic violent-ready pockets of individuals be enough to paralyze America going into a crucial, if not existential national midterm vote? Much of this Qanon-type crap comes from Putin’s Fucking Sinister Bastards & it looks to us he has pulled the trigger. That is, he wants others to know he will escalate. WW3 is just getting started. Putin’s blah blah about nukes simply reflects his KGB past: act big, bring in all tools available to make citizens unsure. But whether military intrusions or Internet attacks or social media hate campaigns by Putin, we are just in the beginning of drawing the “frontlines”. They will be (already are, looks like) international, they will disrupt trade, they will feed the new inflation, they  will   be   problematic. BUT, we did not start this war, nevertheless must defend ourselves – everything that we have or enjoy! If that sounds a bit strong, this author remembers East-European (In Poland, in Hungary, in Czechoslovakia) demonstrators being mowed down by Soviet tank machine guns in the days of the ‘great’ post-WW2 Soviet Union. This is the great plan Czar Putin has (again) as he lists country after country in his dream speeches of a Soviet Union of the Past.

Yes, the election image Republicans make will be strongly flavored by their support for Russia in this growing conflict. Just saw an investing video (creeps don’t get no plug !=} where a whole panel talks about how great Russian oil stocks look. Has their greed just turned their brain to mush? This was after 1 guest talks about starving Americans! First, it’s disgusting. On further reflection, probably wrong as well: in an at least “more active” war (Which one hears definitely in Czar Putin’s speeches!=[) everything will be in play except nukes (though he threatens that too!!). After “consolidation”, drawing front lines…, Russia will sell gas/oil to China (China is on the same debt trap as the West, but the 2 giant dictatorships together will make a formidable foe – in the end, after being consumers, we’re all just Uighurs to the China commies ); the “rest” of the world will buy from Western energy producers. Really will come down to which side you want to win (or be more profitable).

We really don’t know the allocation of this Russia support. How much of it comes from the vast, malign Internet hate & fear channels the Russians are shooting out & how much is residual love of Putin by Orange Slob because the Russians have dirt on him & subsequently carried over to his followers. The latter is ebbing; the former is just getting started.

Actually it’s NOT the Republican candidates & their positions that worry us – the more extreme idiots the better. No, it is the supporters who will volunteer to “monitor” voting lines with their AR-15s. It is the Republican incumbents who will see their only future in massive vote manipulations! The continuing misinformation about voter fraud is exactly what you want to confuse the populace with if you are going to then actually do it yourself. First accuse the enemy of any outrage that you want to commit yourself.(That you CAN read in any old KGB handbook!=). It radically reduces the sting – and holds many at bay – when one can say ‘It happened last time too! The others did it’.

And most worrying are the nazi laws now being passed in many Republican state legislatures. They really make no bones about it: restrict black voting at all costs; control voter registration data to manipulate or use to advantage; and even laws making partisan officials to be “in charge” of election processes. This will be the most contentious midterm for a long time. Republican officials everywhere are doing what they can to manipulate the system, actively & cognizantly corrupting the election process completely.

We use that word “nazi” a lot talking about Republicans, but think about it: wasn’t the Jan.6 riot just an unsuccessful version of the Nazies burning down their Reichtag (congress building) in 30’s? If you want the village to depend on your (inferior) mojo, you necessarily have to poisen or cover or destroy the mojo well of the existing popular Witch Doctor to avoid open comparison! Again, different words, but same idea you find in Mein Kampf & also FSB handbooks. When local school boards taken over by extremist political fervor start banning books, reminding you of Fahrenheit 451, is that not also reminiscent of the public book burnings in 1930’s Germany? And please spare the silly comparison of TrumpChump & Adolf. Nothing like it, not even close. Hitler was a consummate evil person & also capable political intriguist. TrumpChump is a narcissistic career criminal who – for $$$ & applause – fell into Putin’s palm to be made a Manchurian Candidate. We really think people are starting to wake up to that!

As an aside, Goering appeals to us as an appropriate comparison to TrumpChump. Goering was actually an ace pilot in WW1 and – true to Peter Principle (the original was that people get promoted to their level of incompetence) – he was not up to administrative tasks of air force head for the Nazies in WW2. Instead he had pompous uniforms designed for his large & overweight body to make him look like something out of some Imperial Past, all the while robbing art works – from Jewish families, but also straight from museums all over Europe. Literally the man used his power to steal trainloads upon trainloads of artwork. So you see a pretty straight comparison: just two fat-ass, loud-mouth, deplorable crooks, elevated to positions of responsibility they could never handle.

The real running for Führer of this racist, undemocratic attack on American freedom & democracy by the Republican Party would be someone in power orchestrating openly racist laws, voiding national health mandates for zealot dogma, thereby causing actual deaths of fellow Americans. When one is willing to see people die – the same people one has taken an oath to defend – to follow political zealotry & opportunist dogma, then they become eligible for Führer. The current candidates are the Governors of Texas & Florida. For hypocrites like Senators Cruz, Rubio, Hawley et al who went to elite universaties, the German word “Mitlaüfer” is apropo. Mit=>with & laüfer=> walker –> simply walking along with. These creeps know better but for personal gain or quest for power simply go along (& cheer on too) this anti-democratic grab for power, much like many opportunists “walked along” with the Nazies in Germany. Again simply for personal gain or quest for power, but no real convictions for anything. Pimple-assed opportunists, stoking the fire, thinking they can bail out of this like changing bowling shoes…. No- all will have to own their actions in this conflict.

We conclude to say we welcome this national contest against fanatics in 2024, but only if we can have a fair election in 2022. Should the Republicans steal enough of these 2022 midterm state elections, a fair vote in 2024 will become impossible. In fact, if Democrats are not able to make ground in 2022, to have enough support for national voting rights law, for national standards for fair elections processes, this fight for fair elections will escalate & continue to harm America’ image.

2022 Part 1 Covid

The following chart should show Covid in recurring, but declining waves. We are – internationally – in decline, but another, smaller wave is most probably likely – if nothing worse happens. “Small wave” internationally probably means giant waves in a few locales. By the time of the midterms, one million Americans will have died from Covid! Imagine saying to a firefighter person that has just put out a fire in your house “That’s Ok, I didn’t need you, it would eventually have gone out all by itself.

The sheer amount of intellectual discord in a supposedly modern nation is a sure sign education systems are lacking. Now Republican states unashamedly adopt Nazi regimes in book burning banning. But continued Covid care is costing some states dearly. Will “Covid MONEY” come into the political discussion. (We keep saying “discussion”, when you see/hear the lunacy of Fox-type outlets confusing so many people, just for the Murdochs & others to gain money, political power over actual corpses, maybe its time to communicate a bit more frankly, call a spade a spade, a nazi a nazi. America is facing external threats & part of the strategy of these adversaries is supporting tacitly, financially exactly these movements e.g. Qanon, in the domestic American population to stir dividedness, disseminate hyped or total false information to scare & make people uncertain. Call everything into question! Probably find that in Trotsky’s notes somewhere….

Solid political stance relevant to Covid seems difficult to cultivate from this current fixed divide. I privately wonder if the main news outlets will look at Covid deaths in the runup to election and analyse if it made any difference in the results. Simply how many Republicans, Democrats, etc. died & was it large enough a number to influence an election. Want to tread carefully here, but… you reap what you sow!

2022 or NEVER !!! Fed Addendum

In succinct, but brutal words: the 1% now owns everything.. literally! And the FED for 40 years has been the official enabler. Most people think of the word rent, in terms of the pad, house, apt… domicile facet. In financial terms it encompasses all income from ownership of rented assets (ie. everything). That’s why billionaires have become so media aware. In times past, wealthy people simply stayed to themselves. They make good press now, even tout their do-good causes, but the real dirty work is done by other funds, institutes… extraneous organizations. Blackrock now is bringing homelessness to Europe, the way they have mastered it in the stateside. There’s even a fixed coefficient in their formulas, though it differs region to region. This matrix coefficient, empirically based, relates homelessness, media coverage thereof, rent optimization, base prices.

For 40 years, the FED has steadily & relentlessly widened inequality to the point of national concern. Probably brushed off as circumstantial, or however you say collateral damage financially, in their hallowed halls, it is starting to enter the national discussion. We are convinced the pending attention paid to next federal budget authorization; budding finance hysteria; even all other news, will eventually devolve toward the current status of gigantic financial misalignments. Will people quietly accept their serf status in a medieval world?

Let’s get real for a minute: if enough of the querdenkers vote into local state office enough of loonies like Marjorie Green in any 1 state, even a single state with a Republican Governor, expect that state to secede! We discuss this later, here just want to make the point that this social calamity is something in the making of years and years by the FED – totally open.

In political terms, Pres. Biden re-appointing latest Greenspan-Resurrect is a sign of weakness, a prayer to the status quo. Any big change coming from this FED, instead of a new face, would only be seen as panic, not decisiveness. That is sad, their effectiveness has been neutered by their past lethargy. Of course, there are academic scenarios where just a few points move by the FED would bring down the whole house of …. debt. “No good choices” as described in John Mauldin articles.


Today RUSSIA, under Putin the CZAR, has INVADED the closest non-Soviet, democratic and next-door neighbor country Ukraine!!

The FED, regardless of any opprobrium deserved, now has no choices! Some jawboning may even pick up, but supply chains are going to be massively adjusted. Rates will have to remain low! Money will need to keep flowing! We’re on pump – all of us: EU, US, ASIA, … but now this war is going to quickly spill over to commerce. Militarily nukes are out (hopefully!!!), but in the economic theatre, total warfare is called for, actually be unavaidable. If for no other reason is that they have already started, in bad faith, long ago. The constant cyber-attacks coming from Russia against any & all targets: corporations, water works, electric networks has clearly shown their active hostility.

Dictatorships, left or right style doesn’t matter, all of them cannot stand comparisons. You have to block out (eg. North Korea) or destroy anyplace that shows a richer, happier population. Yeah, that sounds “korny”, but this war is going to test many loyalties, even convictions about democracy.

Can you believe that an insane (& dumb!=) ex_President and a major network feeds (FOX NEWS et al) are cheering Putin on??? How effective has Russian propaganda been in America?

Europe needs to get off Russian gas! Gas is going up as we speak. How cold are Europeans willing to live to help establish a new eco-political order? If not, Czar Putin will put stronger touch on Latvia, Estonia & Lithuania even though they are in NATO. That is going to cost everybody massively but the balance sheets are not as healthy as when Pres. Reagan outspent & ultimately led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

The only way to topple Czar Putin is by his own people, at least a couple of the rich, powerful who wanted to travel the world. If Russia is nothing but a giant gangster gas station, it’s time to turn off the tap. That will cost & the FED must pray that the status quo holds for awhile longer.

2022 or NEVER !!!

The Importance & Impact of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.

In more normal times mid-term elections see fewer voters as national elections & often the party in power nationally sees a reverse of fortunes in the Congress. So much for normal times. Let’s get right down to why this is not anything like normal times & will not be for quite some time! We had intended a more normal rah-rah for how important this particular mid-term election will be. But other cataclysms seem to be on the horizon that completely upgrade the urgency.

In no particular order:

  • Climate Change is an established topic can be relegated back to academia & research centers for further study. Back here on earth, the term now becomes weather has changed! It will take monstrous public works projects to mitigate – at best – flood & storm damage occurring w/ much higher frequencies anticipated.

As of this writing, a massive storm has swept over England & northern Europe, causing a lot of storm damage. This is after the US experiencing literally a stream of very similar structured storms, with each wave causing serious infrastructure damage in one area after the other. Who is going to campaign for cutting fire fighters and other state-funded emergency personnel with only bigger & bigger storms more & more certain? Answer: The same minority hoard that never recognized Covid as an emergency! So weather disasters in a political campaign are not going to convert any of the many flavors of querdenkers out there. “Querdenker” is a new German word & means quer => across; denker => thinker. Pretty much someone who stands in the way of things, thinks against prevailing ideas; even lining trucks across the road to block, keep it from being used. In Germany it’s the people who demonstrate against …. (waiting for a noun? No, no noun necessary. These certain groups resemble a little child that simply throws a temper tantrum; says no to everything … on “principle”; and perseveres as far as they can take it. What can happen?!?! It’s a high for them. Of course, being childlike, they are not aware (or worse!=[)  of any possible grave consequences.)  Point is, however, that MONEY will be a campaign issue. Weather Changed = MONEY


WAR! Just listened to Putin & – I swear – he sounded just like Hitler talking about German speakers in neighboring countries in 1938 & his “worry about them.”… exact same verbage. Our personal opinion about the man goes back to these pics of him riding bareback & bare. Could it be that these enhancing weightlifter drugs are causing him to think of himself as resurrected Peter the Great (or maybe more like Ivan the Terrible), bringing Russia to Europe. In his big speech, he listed off the many countries the Soviet Union “lost”. Donald Trump, a simply despicable person in our opinion, his mentor** Putin is now on a MAKE RUSSIA GREAT AGAIN! Campaign.

**Yes,yes, he fell in love with Rocket Man & still keeps his letters, but Putin is the one who gave him a football!

  • WAR!!! Xi has China in a nationalistic mood, what will be necessary to take Formosa. In the countless U-tube channels about Chinese economy, has it occurred to anyone that an easy unifying action/distraction is a war? Maybe some old faction in the Chinese commie world thinks it’s time to remind the populace who is in charge? Especially now, because the real estate debacle is making local governments look corrupt, weak, underfinanced… susceptible?! And what would be better than a nationalistic unifying endeavor, a simple non-nuclear clash? Then everything else falls back in importance; Evergreen? Has to wait…poisoned water, air? Later….
  • Inflation! Simple as that! Inflation is kryptonite to this Super-Bubble. What the FED has done now for 4 consecutive chiefs (actually “chefs” of easy money salads, just green everywhere, for years & years, same stupid salad, never changing….  in the end looks almost criminal. Whether corrupt or not arguments will probably arise. The longer inflation runs, the more the damage. But it will recede occasionally as things really slow down. But it will be like a rattler drawing back his head, just building for more forward momentum, probably for the next supply chain surprise.

Inflation in US/EU is there! Exact numbers, ranging though probably 5-10%, are not as important as trend. When will a clear, irrefutable trend be established? Answer: Exactly in the run-up to 2022 mid-term elections! Meantime, the Fed runs this game of MANY rate hikes (sounds just sooo hawkisch), but each is a puny  ¼ of 1% and they are starting …. LOW! More important – to the FED – is that there will be PAUSES (as in MONTHS…. EACH!!! ) between these …..hmmm**… moves that will placate politicians that the markets are served.

**’momentous’ wanted to say in sarcastic way. But if the FED/politicians don’t get this right, manage to steer some kind of way through the brewing The Great Reset ocean storm, then there won’t be any FED anymore to worry about anyway. These actions – as they stand now – will be well remembered as a momentously monumental fiasco!! But the FED people will still get their milli$on $peaking engagements…or will they?

Ok, back to the topic at hand:

2022 Notes

Musk Presidency REVISITED

We made the case that Mr. Musk would be more than a valid contender; however, we realize the man has bigger projects in mind – really! And in recognition of the growing power of corporations (corporations that know they need to be international players to be viable), eventually political power will come to him without him having to chase any elected post. This is not to say that Mr. Musk will at some point be forced into a more active political role. The German government must be driving the man mad w/ never ending pettiness from a visionless bureaucracy. In the US, Pres. Biden sets himself up beside the old hallmark GM as the “EV Leader of the World” even as slowly people discover the hidden deal GM made with China. In short, GM completely sold out (probably didn’t have a real choice on their way to bankruptcy), gave away all leading tech they may have had and now a large majority of EVs come from China, then Mexico. A Chinese Cadillac anyone? Pres. Biden has made an absolute fool of himself parading around with the GM CEO  but he can’t help it: he is simply a product of classical American politics going back ages. Which brings us to a crucial question for Democrats: will they save GM again w/vast taxpayer money??? This time it will not work, instead it will absolutely backfire. Should this administration even try to save GM, there would be national coverage of GM’s EVs made in China, made in Mexico, the details of deal made w/China! (We  cover the impending chaos that will bring this question into the public discussion in “2022 or NEVER”)
