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.

The people in Govt

I was also responsibly for taxes.

We were in the big company classification for taxes which means we were always audited on a 2 year cycle by the IRS. More often than not, the auditors, supposedly the best, were also lazy.

One strategy was to give them a cushy conference room with "WATTS" lines--eg toll free numbers coming in or going out.

The blew their time budget on the phones.

Yeah they are partisan, mostly to the left.

I never saw one auditor, state or federal, working hard. A couple of times I had the agent tell me that if I gave him adjustments he would push it thru and get out of my way (my answer was the books are clean go find something).

This isn't full crazy. Just

This isn't full crazy. Just crazier than everybody is used to, since 2016.

Full crazy is still coming towards the world down the US Prez election pipeline.

>> The people in govt making

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

They're partisan, and know somebody else pays the tab for their activist decisions.

OPM (other peoples' money) and OPP (other people pay) are and always were the great enabler.

Look at the volume spikes

Who is selling and whom is buying? I hope every ounce sold this morning is going to someone who plans to stand for delivery. Likely, as has been the program for the last decade, Bullion bank selling to another ‘approved participant’ (and they just later ‘EFP’ the contract for ‘cash’ created from nothing...) This continues until buyers respond by taking this paper price and standing for delivery.
