Trump offers leadership, then sells the masses...,

by Argentus Maximus

Trump offers leadership, then sells the masses ... on their tab for future tax .... exactly what they want. He knows full well that the thing they want was put into their heads, by somebody else deliberately, and he even tells the masses this every time.

Then if they still want it after his warning and explanation, he gives it to them in a practical way.

It's quite straightforward when you look for it.

"We don't need to bomb anyone."

"Ok You want me to bomb someone? Did the fake news tell you that? You know it fake news, right? You really want I give you this thing?"

"Fair enough. I'll let my colleagues know to clear their people out so we do the thing but do not do anything more serious inadvertently. And you can pay for the obsolete cruise missiles we will replace afterwards with shiny new ones."

Masses happy.

Fremenies happy or not at all out war.

Military industrial complex happy.

Army/Navy happy.

Fake news happy since they delivered the new biz to payers behing the curtain.

Even taxpayers happy, since they are too dumb to rein in their loony demanding taxpayer colleagues and neighbours who demand this expensive useless action.

... time goes by ....

"So does anybody believe this (COVID) data? Oh you all do. Really? OK .... You remember they are fake news still? No? OK .... Just reminding you for your own good. Now. After I told you its stupid, what do you still demand I do for you to earn your vote? (You'll pay for it, that's understood, right?) "

"You need a Gatesean-Vaccine czar? You sure about that? It might hurt you yourself you know. OK ..... You still want one of those chemical dictators ordering you around? I'll see to it then .... you agree to pay the costs again, right? ..... I'll get to it so. "

Don't expect this to climax, or peak, or end, until after the masses have endured enough personal pain and anguish and realized they did it to themselves. And even after that it will take time for the slow ones TO CHANGE WHAT THEY WANT.

The boomers are shuffling off the stage.

They were the epitomy of TV-programmed automatons, since TV was new for their generation and potent on their minds.

The boomers were complete suckers for the marketing mind control. They were young and impressionable. They bought into the american dream, the imaginary paradise of success, they whole nine yards of utter BS. They spent. And spent. So much consumerist crap was required to sate their demands, that production moved to other continents to fill the demand. New powers were created on the money flow.

The boomers created and built consumerist society just as they had been (covertly and subliminally) instructed by their masters of marketing. They lived their lives out measuring success today by the new bauble the people next door had bought yesterday, that they didn't have.

So boomers in their millions climbed onto their hamster wheel to earn, steal, or grab what money they needed to pay for the trinkets of success that the man next door or the ad on TV dangled in front of their jealous eyes.

Today TV is less potent on some generations than others. Consumerism is faltering, maybe failing completely.

The boomers are going away,one by one. Losing voter control. And not coincidentally, their pensions and savings are being stolen right in front of their eyes by a plethora of thieves. Banks with negative interest rates take their money. Markets have collapsed downwards, at the time they want to sell and cash out of that stock portfolio, or holding. Taxes are rising by license and regulator fees to producers embedded within every price.

And the following generations after the boomers are to a certain degree anti consumerist. Hardened against mainstream lifestyle propaganda, to a certain degree. Those following generations, in their millions are more aesthetic, less wanting of baubles, possibly due to being less wealthy or well paid compared to prices and tax levels.

The following generations matured and markets went sideways for decades. From 2000 the stock market topped and went sideways for a decade. Money printing and wash trading by central banks created the illusion of a breakout, but the money flow required became exponentially large. They invented a new word for this money printing, called Quantitative Easing. But really, it was boomer industry support for car manufacture, financial sector, and other big employer lobby corporates.

Now this is wobbling and in need of further support. More QE won't do it. People must be made to spend what they have. Especially if they don't have it and they are incited to borrow. Loans are the finance sector's main product and Wall St bailouts will be reduced if the fools/people can be ... encouraged ... nudged is the new word... particularly well.

Along comes individualized personal marketing via AI character trait exploitation and personal small screen devices. Minds can be entrained via bespoke (personalized) news (poropaganda) delivery now.

- First weld the individuals into a team, to suppress individual critical thought.

- Then direct the less intelligent young crowd towards creating and supporting whatever will sustain the underfunded structures that used to live off stupid boomers.

- Then let the trained (fools/people) mad dogs loose to bite their more sensible colleagues among the populace and bring them inline with .... plans.

- Then make out like bandits for another fifty years or until they run out of earning/loan repaying power. And repeat at that time if required.

Donald may say: It's fake, you remember that? You really want me to borrow trillions for this thing? You don't have money to buy a house, or any savings due to negative interest rates, but you want this? Absolutely sure? OK .... if you really say so ....

Donald is the enemy of of the media, who are the ones paid to deliver the nudging/propaganda/marketing. Whatever you want to call their mind control information. He actually warns the masses. That's not supposed to be the way it goes!

Donald can be identified as talking to a growing middle ground people within the masses. This group is more cynical. more anti consumerist. More anti (programmed) lifestyle. They are more propaganda resistance. It's not good those people exist, or can be allowed to speak in public. They are a silent resistance.

Some don't go to blockbuster movies, with hidden subtexts to bend their beliefs. They don't pay for their propagandistic indoctrination!

This stuff costs money! The movie industry is losing money! Like the legacy (corrupted) media. Actions to combat these losses of control must be taken against the middle people, and their communications channels. The system requires it.

Some of these measures may look bizarre, but it's absolutely necessary to shut the sensible voices up.

And thus we see "business" decisions and "news" like these:

CNN Caught Lying AGAIN??! Claim People NEED Vaccine But Even Fauci Is Now Saying It Might Not Work

Tyrant Governor Whitmer Calls Protests There "Racist"

Twitch Hires Anti-Male "Trust & Safety Council" Member..

This analysis is revealing:

Facebook Launches Hateful Memes Challenge With a $100k Prize to Build an AI That Detects Spicy Mem..

And so is this analysis:

Its Unlikely google is rolling back diversity and inclusion to "please conservatives"

Ask yourself honestly. Would you have caught this nuance?

Once you see it, if you are not crowd immersed and peer proximity controlled, it seems obvious.

Now here's the thing. Are you scared to pass the message on? Afraid the other person might be "other"? Want to keep quiet? If so, and I am not judging, how can the new middle crowd grow and oppose the gullible masses?

Is there a conclusion here? Is there a prediction available, based upon interpretation, honestly, of the power of self when talking to near friends and associates? Because, in a strange way, when we bet on the market, we bet on power of self, or lack of that power.

Because, in this, once again, every part is connected to the other.

Good people are fearful (with reason) even while winning:

VICE Announces 155 Layoffs As Downward Spiral Continues, I have a HUGE Announcement Related

BRITISH MEDIA SING A DIRGE FOR BUZZFEED UK

In a world where information is so filtered, so controlled, winning is less obvious than it should be.

However, winning battles is only a part of winning wars. Even wars of the dominating culture.

And so it goes. Round and round and nobody stops it.

Even when Trump say it loud and clear.

Why not smash 200,300,400.

If they can do this why not just go for the gusto and smash 200,300,400. All the talking heads would make up some BS story that the economy is opening or something. Nobody gets in trouble or goes to jail so all is good in FED land. Actually quite scary to see the control they still maintain to manipulate everything.

Boomer-on the restaurants

I am familiar with restaurants , family owned a couple when I was a kid.

The business drains you, physically and emotionally and financially. I just remember working with my Dad to pay bills, setting aside some which in a bad week, we could not pay.

Few credit cards then, customers paid mostly with cash.

The vendors actually spotted him with investment cash provided he signed a long term deal to buy from them-bread, meats etc. That was a no interest deal and the only way the amount came due if if he wanted to change suppliers.

Fast forward to today. One of my Dads friendly competitors sons has a huge chain in Chicago. Wildly successful and great products and service.

The son of that son, now operational CEO of the group, was interviewed the other day about the IL locked down going beyond June 24 for restaurants, and dissed Gv Pritzker, saying it was a blow to restaurant owners emotionally and financially. There are going to be many casualties.

I have a small interest in a couple of the deals. Their strategy is to create a theme restaurant, eg italian old school, run it a couple of years till it is successful, then sell it to guys like me, After a couple more years they leverage it and the investors get their money back as a cash distribution. and then keep getting payouts .

Last year will be the last payout probably for some time as even if they open, max customers will be 50%.

Before they re-open its time to ask if its throwing good money after bad.

The people in govt making the decisions are --there is no word for it. they are either incompetant or corrupt.

this is so outrageous

Yet the MSM and the mining CEOs could not care less.

PoundTown

CDG now down $30 and CDS down 75¢...in 75 minutes...because, you know, Powell was SO bearish for the PMs last night.

May 18, 2020 - 9:14am

Pretty remarkable

Powell appears on 60 Minutes and discusses "infinite" cash.

What do you suppose would be his/their ideal outcome? Perhaps higher stocks and lower gold by the time the NYSE opens?

If so, it's Mission Accomplished.

Their keyboard is working just fine

Well he (Powell) even told us they print it digitally. I guess the enter key is getting a double workout this am. Pre Market DOW up 700, gold smashed . Just another day in the criminal world of the US FED.

Normally I'd be pissed at the AM smash..

but I sold a bunch of miners near the close on Friday, not knowing what Chief Goon Yellow Stain (Mannarino's nickname for CGP) was going to unveil to our detriment on 60 Minutes.... So now I can buy them back without all the pre-market premium that had me quite regretful of my compulsiveness on Friday.
