GREEK PRIVATIZATION & OUR ANTI-COMMUNIST FAKE LEFT, TRUMP, ET.AL.


Above subject and link below represent EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE, including HERE, altho, NO State owned industries and/or natural resources exist, except a few NOMINAL Federally owned lands, a Park System, US Gulf of Mexico territorial waters leased ALL to PRIVATE energy operations.
You MAY recall notorious BP, one of many, oil catastrophes in that particular part of the world.

Trump's PLAN, recipe, basically boils down to same with a good dash of "liberal" nationalism thrown into the recipe, namely, EXPAND, DEFEND, PRIVATE CAPITAL OVERSEAS, as well as more at home.

THAT IS HIS SOLUTION, PURE AND SIMPLE, IN A NUTSHELL.

ALL, for example, really want to do away with PUBLIC education, NOT a profitable venture, TAKING TAXPAYER MONIES AWAY FROM FINANCING EVER EXPANDED DEBT AND PRIVATE SUBSIDIES OF ALL KIND, INCLUDING MILITARY.

Towards this end, FOR EXAMPLE, an expanded CHARTER SCHOOL movement exists, representing profitable PRIVATE enterprises under guise, auspice, of public-private partnerships.

OUR FAKE Opposition and LABOR UNIONS, AFL-CIA/SEIU, INC., represent THE/A IMPEDIMENT to any REAL OPPOSITION regarding POLICIES NAMED ABOVE, partnered, invested, between health care AND pension funds, with ALL manner of PRIVATE capital.

Former AFT, Am Federation of Teachers, UNION President Albert Shanker, for example, initially being a great enthusiast and advocate of charter schools.
Same union also PROUDLY advertised THEIR help liberating Poland from Communism.

So, NO secret, or, another OPEN SECRET, like those supporting Born Again and brain dead oxymoron Democratic Socialist Sanders.

I can assure everyone, as our perpetually nauseating political Presidential bread and circuses campaign unfolds Trump will LOSE lots of his current luster and steam, along with ALL others combined.

Our career political class stands naked and exposed.

OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM IS BANKRUPT!

The ONLY difference between them and Trump being Trump does his OWN hatchet job rather than hiring professional, dispensable, disposable, replaceable, political front men and women to take the heat and bear the burden of finger pointing, parliamentary tricks.

But, it is NOT CAREER POLITICIANS who are THE problem, part of an illusory blame game.
They just FULFILL A JOB DESCRIPTION.

IT IS THOSE WHO OWN EVERYTHING STANDING BEHIND THEIR CREATED PARTIES AND POLITICIANS.

THEIR OWNERSHIP NEVER CHALLENGED, CHANGED, BECAUSE, AS BORN AGAIN OXYMORON DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST SANDERS SAYS, 
"WE DO NOT DO THAT HERE," i.e, NATIONALIZATION!

Just for the record, our nominal "socialist" Presidential candidate Sanders ALSO vehemently declared,
"The US would NEVER repudiate, default, not pay, its DEBT, declare bankruptcy." 
Unthinkable!!
And, he/they just love STIMULUS, QE, same policies that CREATE debt, SUBSIDIZING PRIVATE CAPITAL.

At the same time ALL rail, pontificate, against Wall Street!

"White man speak out of both sides of his/their mouths," to paraphrase an expression of original sin, i.e, indigenous economic and physical tribal slaughter, and, of course, slavery.
(A very and too complicated history for THIS OR ANY BLOG, not a simple morality tale, however.)

All our present day systemic apologists and collaborators put the cart before the horse.

We just need more democracy, say they, in unison.

MONEY OUT OF POLITICS???!!!

BUT, NO CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP! 

Which comes first, chicken or egg??

It's called POLITICAL ECONOMY, stupid!

HOW THE HELL DOES MONEY GET OUT OF POLITICS WHEN POLICIES, POLITICS, BY DEFINITION, ARE AN EXTENSION OF ECONOMICS, MADE, DETERMINED, IMPLEMENTED BY, THOSE WHO OWN EVERYTHING, INCLUDING CURRENCY.


Anyway, THANKS for a somewhat more extensive and updated report from Greece regarding this matter:

LEFT GATEKEEPERS & FAKE OPPOSITION


I thought to do a VERY SMALL, SIMPLE, quick and nasty, sample for those witting or unwitting HOW above heading, about which I write ALOT, works.

FIRST LINK BELOW represents a popular TV call in program interview with a PRIME example from above.

Point being, they, in this case, she, represents OFFICIALLY ANOINTED COVERT OPS MEDIA spokesperson/s for our FAKE Opposition, Left.

So, bear that in mind.

I apologize IF you sit through this interview.

IF you want to skip the entire thing, go directly to approximately MINUTE #35 THRU TO MINUTE #36, give or take a few seconds, minutes, when 2 viewers telephone asking 2 different questions.
Bless them!

NOTE answers to both questions.

THAT BEING THE POINT OF THIS LITTLE EXERCISE.

The first question regards SOROS AND WHAT/WHO he funds in our CURRENT political campaign cycle.
She simply conveniently states she KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT.
Discussion ends.

Second question immediately thereafter regards supposed INDEPENDENT funding, like SANDERS, in this instance, for HER radio/TV program.
Again, she avoids SPECIFICS.
Like Sanders, she/they just get small donations, AND, oh, yes, SOME, ALITTLE, FOUNDATION MONIES.
She does NOT say HOW MUCH, WHICH, FOUNDATION MONIES INVOLVED.
After listening to this, go to my second link, just below this one:

http://www.c-span.org/video/?409079-3/washington-journal-amy-goodman-progressive-media-organizations-201

SECOND LINK BELOW.

IF YOU SCROLL DOWN TEXT BELOW TO THE VERY BOTTOM, AT THE END, YOU WILL SEE A FUNDING FLOW CHART.

This represents a RELATIVELY OLD and incomplete chart which need be updated but I can NOT find that information at my fingertips AT THE MOMENT.
So, this will suffice.

You are welcome to read the text and more, but, it is a very DIFFICULT essay to follow IF one is not already familiar with names, characters, associations, mentioned.

So, I am NOT urging you read it ALL.

THE FUNDING FLOW CHART at the BOTTOM BEING SUFFICIENT TO DEMONSTRATE MY POINT.

This definitely is NOT comprehensive, BUT, as I indicate, merely an EXERCISE DEMONSTRATING GENERAL OPERATING PROCEDURES.
A TEMPLATE for how things work.

FOR EXAMPLE, OUR AFL-CIA/SEIU labor unions NEVER EVEN MENTIONED and THAT is a VERY, VERY, IMPORTANT OMISSION.

Those below represent primarily media, cultural, political, intellectual, PROMINENT FRONT groups, covert ops, faces, names, voices, ones you all hear, read, or, see, much of the time.
Many, many, more exist, however.

IN CASE IT DISAPPEARS FROM THE INTERNET, AS AN INSURANCE POLICY, I DECIDED TO POST THE FLOW CHART FROM LINK BELOW, SO, YOU DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO READ ANYTHING ELSE IF YOU DO NOT WISH.

Just check out the FLOW CHART:

TRUMP & AN ITSBY BITSY, TEENY WEENY, MUTI-TRILLION $ NATIONAL DEBT PROBLEM; HOSTILE TAKEOVER; NAZI/FASCISM UBER ALLES


A report below from Greece regarding Greek and US DEBT and TRUMP statement being NOT quite accurate.

One OBVIOUS, fundamental, elementary, simple, basic, FACT, difference, between US FEDERAL and GREEK GOVERNMENT DEBT, namely, the US TREASURY AUTHORIZES MONEY PRINTED thanks to a WWI era US FEDERAL RESERVE "quasi government" institutionalized system, a PRIVATELY OWNED piggy bank, THEN, US GOVERNMENT DEBT BONDS ISSUED FOR FEDERAL MONIES "BORROWED" from THEIR Federal Reserve piggy bank whereas the Greek government can NOT do this neat, clever, little magic trick THANKS TO RELATIVELY NEWLY MINTED EURO ZONE CURRENCY over which THEY possess NO direct control!

THAT one simple FACT, difference, Trump actually points out in 2nd link, below.

That part being CORRECT.

All else said by Trump represents PROPAGANDA, garbage.

Of course, Trump does DOES NOT ITEMIZE FOR WHOM, WHICH, WHAT, PURPOSES all this nice, newly minted, currency goes in the form of stimulus, quantitative easing, CURRENCY MANIPULATION PAR EXCELLENCE, of which Trump accuses OTHER countries regarding trade imbalances

ONE GLARING FORM of STIMULUS, FOR EXAMPLE, being inflated PRIVATELY OWNED LUXURY REAL ESTATE SPECULATION, DEVELOPMENT, ASSET BUBBLE, leading to all sorts of negative social and economic consequences and 10 year LOCAL real estate tax abatements for THESE DEVELOPERS, thus, INCREASING ONEROUS AND BURDENSOME TAXES on EVERYONE ELSE, escalating economic disparaties, homelessness, deepening inequalities.

Needless to say Trump, NOR our STATE/FOUNDATION/CIA SPONSORED LOVE ME I'M LIBERAL FAKE OPPOSITION, to point out THAT particular glaring discrepancy, since he profits handsomely from PRIVATE luxury real estate, amongst other businesses owned, and, our FAKE OPPOSITION are apologists for the Administration.

Preceding policies AND MORE run rampant in DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED Philadelphia hosting their Presidential Party gala celebrations in July and surely NO protests, objections, to those OR OTHER policies to MANIFEST themselves vociferously either inside or outside convention halls. 

See my earlier posts for more on "Challenging Conventions."

But, much of everything else said by ALL, ANYWAY, MISSES THE MAIN POINT REGARDING MONEY, CURRENCY, ITS ROLE, VALUE, in ANY society, AND, specifically, OUR OWN, CURRENT, ECONOMIC SYSTEM.

Money has NO intrinsic worth.
It easily can and has become toilet paper in other historical contexts.

It ONLY is an accepted medium of exchange for REAL, tangible, goods, services, products, representing LABOR VALUE ADDED.

But, as a society, COLLECTIVELY, WE do and can NOT allocate natural and industrial resources where, when, how, as NEEDED, THIS BEING NOT A STATE, COMMUNAL, COLLECTIVELY OWNED, PLANNED, ECONOMIC SYSTEM, ALL natural resources and industry remain PRIVATELY OWNED, including money, thus, dependent upon competing, conflicting, contradictory economic PROFIT driven motives, decisions, COMMODIFIED stock MARKET exigencies, speculation, price fluctuation, gambling casinos, stock exchange, "special interests," expansion abroad, imperialism, mercantilism "buy cheap sell dear", colonialism, gunboat diplomacy, "lebensraum," monopoly hegemony, etc.

(As an aside, I thought Lena Wurtmuller did a FABULOUS job fictionalizing and symbolizing money and CLASS in her movie, "Swept Away.")

But, that subject matter, of course, along with the N word, OFF THE TABLE, NOT FOR DISCUSSION, VERBOTEN, HERE.

I DID in previous posts bet that Trump would NOT raise interest rates.

So be it.

And, of course, he wants to spend more CHEAP money on MILITARY hardware for PRECEDING REASONS.

Our military is NOT defensive, but, offensive, mercenaries EXPANDING, PROTECTING, PROMOTING, MARKET SHARE, PENETRATION, ASSET STRIPPING, PRIVATE APPROPRIATION OR EX-APPROPRIATION, as the case may be, and, so on.

All those nice little barbaric social antiquities, relics.

Military expenditures DO represent JOBS, but, as usual, with PRIVATELY OWNED MANUFACTURE AND military items, NATIONAL DEFENSE, the NATIONAL SECURITY STATE, those jobs and production represent GENERALLY NO added USE VALUE since most military related products are designed for death and destruction.
Not 100% true, but, a very high percentage.
Some items could and do, of course, have dual purposes.

As for Trump's "solution" suggested below about DEBT restructuring, well, spending more and declaring a debt haircut ONE OR ANOTHER way EVENTUALLY to happen, MOST LIKELY, since everybody agrees our current ASTRONOMICAL DEBT BUBBLE MUST explode or deflate, a meaningless, unpayable, number--ONEROUS DEBT.

Yes, SOME, or, MANY, people to get affected by debt discounting, but, which people in particular and how??

"People" ALREADY are affected adversely by EVERY policy made at the moment.

This being THE BASIC reason Trump has so many followers!

Our ONEROUS debt simply becomes an extension of an expanded VIRTUAL REALITY game, another superficial, superflous, artificial, ASSET BUBBLE, like COMMERCIALLY APPROPRIATED redundant electronic internet digital gadgets producing NOTHING of any real worth.
FUCK FACEBOOK!
AND ALOT MORE TOXIC INDUSTRIES, BUSINESSES, including many Trump names and others he does not.

But, above were NOT AGREED upon pre-election agenda issues.

All above being dirty little OPEN secrets, best not uttered publicly aloud.

However, it is NOT just US Federal, but, an ENTIRE COUNTRY DEBT DRIVEN for much of post WWII years.

INDIVIDUALS, WAGE EARNERS, spend MORE money then they earn or save purchasing all sorts of COMMODITIES from homes, cars, education, smaller consumer goods, food, etc., with CREDIT CARDS, DEBT FINANCING, MORTGAGES, STUDENT LOANS, and so on.

(Of course, individually, they, unlike the US FEDERAL RESERVE and TREASURY, do NOT own a printing press and do/can NOT receive STIMULUS MONIES, unless they counterfeit very WELL!)

ALSO, JUST AS IMPORTANT, MANY, if not ALL, local, MUNICIPAL, STATE, CITY, governments BORROW extensively to finance their costs, ALSO issuing BONDS with INTEREST, since they have NO other way to finance expenditures EXCEPT thru ever greater taxation.

This ALL combined together represents a MORTALLY SICK, WOUNDED, INCESTUOUS, CIRCULAR, PROFOUNDLY MORTGAGED, ECONOMIC SYSTEM no matter which way one slices the cake.

Trying to unravel it one piece or a string at a time is like a proverbial elephant and blind men, each touching a point on the elephant but NOT able to piece together the information sufficient to declare IT IS AN ELEPHANT!
Or, a jigsaw puzzle with a single CLUE.
So:

Next, I thought a nice, simple, business characterization of Republican Party upstart minor billionaire TRUMP, DAVID, versus HISTORICALLY entrenched MULTI-TRILLION dollar GOLIATH, NAZI Rockefeller CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN INTERNATIONAL POWER MONOPOLY BEHEMOTH, octopus, cartel, is similar to a "Hostile Takeover." 

They, above, do NOT want someone in the Presidential office whom they can and do NOT DIRECTLY own, control, influence, like their present day CIA boy Emperor and puppet AND those before him.

ALL our professional, CAREER, politicians are purchased, owned, hired, by PRIVATE CAPITAL.

Additionally, MANY THOUSANDS of LOCAL, STATE, CITY, MUNICIPAL, elected offices exist throughout the country, NOT just Federal ones.

PRIVATE CAPITAL, like NAZI lineage Rockefeller CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN international cartel can NOT DIRECTLY, THEMSELVES, sit in ALL elected offices.

So, they have a cadre of CAREER politicians, front men and women, representatives, ORGANIZED INTO PARTIES, whom they FINANCE, directly and/or indirectly.

Various estimates exist depending upon which source one reads regarding numbers of ELECTED US city, county, local, state, federal, judges, officials, "dog catchers," combined.

Last number I saw was around 500,000, but, I would imagine, it could be closer to a million, maybe more.
For arguments sake, let us say one, or, a couple, million, more or less, counting EVERY single minor and major ELECTED position thruout the US. 

The NATIONAL offices, of course, BEING THE MOST IMPORTANT, prestigious, especially the IMPERIAL PRESIDENCY, since HE/SHE/IT has ACCESS to intelligence information, NATIONAL SECURITY STATE APPARATUS, agencies of the NSA/NSC/CIA/STATE/DEFENSE, POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, and, FOREIGN POLICY.

ALSO, he/she/it MAKE and/or influence POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS, like, FOR EXAMPLE, FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIR and Supreme Court judges.
(Trump, by the way, indicated he would REMOVE GRANDMA YELLEN as FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIR.)

So, NATIONAL level obviously being MOST IMPORTANT and influential from THEIR perspective.
The rest being TRICKLE DOWN.

More to say, but, this little capsule will have to suffice at the moment.

To be continued at a future date.

However, before ending today's NAZI BIG Shop of Horrors latest episode, TWO REMINDERS, rejoinders, editorial commentary, something which might as well be Greek or Martian HERE:

TRUMP. NATIONALISM; MAKING THE WORLD SAFE FOR GE & FAKE OPPOSITION

Q&A: Senior Deputy Oil Minister Fayadh Nema

Senior Deputy Oil Minister Fayadh Nema (back row, center) attends a signing ceremony for a deal with General Electric on April 25, 2016. (Source: GE) 


GE (General Electric) being another major NAZI supporter, as are, were, almost ALL significant US financial, commercial, corporate PRE AND POST WWII PRIVATE BUSINESS interests, names familiar and a few perhaps less so, to ALL.

On preceding and other websites, one can easily see another NAZI STATE ASSET STRIPPER, TERRORIST, NAZI THUG IN CHIEF IRAN IN IRAQ SADR, and, his militia gang of followers.

These being amongst the SAME ones OUR FAKE OPPOSITION COULD AND STILL CAN NOT FIND!

Not to mention Egypt Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey's AKP, ("whose passion is to sell State Industries"), and, so on.

Then, of course, OPENLY competing and conflicting energy pipeline asset strippers like KRG, present and accounted for.

Above and TRUMP video, speech, link below, intimately connect, intertwine.

Trump, as PRESUMPTIVE Republic-rat Presidential nominee, made a Foreign Policy speech a few days ago at one of our "prestigious" Think Tanks, link at the end, bottom.

(They will continue TRYING to stop Trump until Convention time, most likely. 
The game NOT yet finished and done.)

I find it particularly nauseating listening to THIS speech BECAUSE his HISTORICAL characterizations, narratives, are such total and complete garbage, ideological spin, propaganda, brainwashing, fiction, regarding POST AND PRE WWII FASCISM AND COUNTERREVOLUTION SPONSORED BY PRECEDING CORPORATIONS and their international partners in crime.

HOWEVER, our FAKE Opposition BASICALLY says the same thing.

Remember, in the world according to oxymoron, born again, Karl Rove and Soros supported Democratic Socialist Sanders, "we don't do that here," i.e., nationalization.

OFF THE TABLE, NOT FOR DISCUSSION!

And, by extension, any other country managing to pull off such a revolutionary event, by definition, becomes evil "totalitarianism" incarnate!!

Our hypocritical "moral, humanitarian," FAKE Opposition, represented by Sanders and a Rockefeller sponsored Love Me I'm Liberal, AFL-CIA, Progressives, are worse than outright Trump BECAUSE THEY PRETEND BEING SOMETHING THEY ARE NOT.

BOTH dissent and consent artificially manufactured HERE.

They function as DIVERSION, BLOCKING ANY UNITED COALITION, POSITION, THREAT, CHALLENGE, regarding above.

SO, THEY DESERVE WHATEVER BEFALLS THEM.

Our present day existential crisis NOW being AN OUTCOME OF PRECEDING GLOBAL INTERVENTIONS, COUPS, which most everyone supported, so, really, nobody should cry, complain.

These are YOUR JUST REWARDS, just like those who did and STILL can NOT find NAZI OCCUPIED IRAN IN IRAQ, Hezbollah, Hamas, or anywhere else in the Mideast, for that matter.

I did promise in earlier posts EVERYONE recognizing, apologizing, partnered with, NAZI IRAN would go down together. 

It comes to pass.

However, one can easily understand WHY major FOREIGN ECONOMIC interests as those represented by our current NAZI ROCKEFELLER CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN MONOPOLY INTERNATIONAL CARTEL, are NOT happy replacing TRUMP at the helm of THEIR COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY, REACTIONARY, NAZI DUNG HEAP, overturning their premiere global status and renegotiating terms.

It upsets THEIR fragile applecart with outcomes even more unpredictable than already they seem.

But, they have a cul-de-sac, a point of no exit and/or return, on their plate.

At least, Trump RECOGNIZES and NAMES some OBVIOUS PROBLEMS that DO EXIST, but, which he does NOT state, of course, are CONSEQUENCES of USSR DISSOLUTION and NO LONGER RED CHINA. 

And, REST ASSURED, HE WILL NOT LIQUIDATE, PROSECUTE, or, NATIONALIZE, those named above, their assets, despite recidivist crimes against humanity, theft, and REPEATED roles creating the problems he names.

But, then, NEITHER WILL our FAKE OPPOSITION.

They do NOTHING except make empty noises and gestures.


So, ownership NOT threatened by all or anyone combined above.

NO significant CHANGE.

All these problems are NOT new--they are SYSTEMIC BOOM AND BUST CYCLES SPIRALING upwards with each and every historical collapse, catastrophe, disaster, each one being presented supposedly as last and final.

And, I am willing to take bets Trump will NOT raise interest rates significantly, NOR, of course, repudiate DEBT THEY CREATED for themselves, Federal Reserve policies of STIMULUS, QE, TARP, etc.

HIS answers are OLD, NOT NEW, as a PROFOUNDLY REACTIONARY, MORBIDLY DEFUNCT, PRIMORDIAL, PRIMITIVE, PARASITICAL, ARCHAIC, ECONOMIC SYSTEM being UNABLE to resolve its own manufactured, underlying, endemic, STRUCTURAL issues DESPITE what he OR ANY OTHERS say.

It ALL represents BAND AIDS on a hemorrhaging patient.

OWNERSHIP DOES and WILL NOT CHANGE, except, of course, imperialist rivalries.

ECONOMIC, PRODUCTIVE, POWER TO REMAIN IN PRIVATE HANDS.

THAT BEING THE DEFINITION OF CHANGE YOU WILL NOT GET.


It, he, they, we, are as delusional as ALL the rest combined.

The answer to ALL ABOVE should be MADE LOUD AND CLEAR BY AN ENTIRE GLOBE whose STATE ASSETS, NATURAL RESOURCES, INDUSTRIES, SHOULD NOT BE PRIVATIZED BY ANY FOREIGN OR DOMESTIC NAZI CLONES, TOOLS, SURROGATES, CLIENTS, PARTNERS, no matter who they are.

Trump, most likely, will be President for reasons stated above and reiterated in my many previous posts.

But, it will NOT work AS he or others presume.

Our species will NOT survive a DEPRAVED ECONOMIC SYSTEM of PRIVATE ownership, production, distribution.

The greatest threat to humanity being NOT, per se, climate change, but, endemic, systemic, POVERTY, OUR OWN MAN MADE ECONOMIC SYSTEM, which creates CONDITIONS BOTH FOR CLIMATE CHANGE and POVERTY WITH ITS ENDLESS, CEASELESS, REDUNDANT, DEMAND FOR INCREASED CONSUMPTION, EXPLOITATION, APPROPRIATION, MILITARISM, IMPERIALISM, COLONIALISM, ASSET STRIPPING, ALL FOR THE SAKE OF GREATER PROFIT, COMPETITION AND MARKET SHARE!

Commodity fetishism, as Marx called it, ON STEROIDS.

As to a question often asked, whether or not to vote??

My answer, do as one pleases.

It IS a Hobson's choice, NAZIS EVERY WHICH WAY ONE LOOKS, as far as the eye can see.

IF you do vote, I recommend you hold your nose and vote Trump, because, as I have said, he puts a dent into an otherwise nauseating, sickening, repulsive, NAZI MONOPOLY DICTATORSHIP, thus, opening a door to OTHER POSSIBILITIES as a consequence.

What you see is what you get. 

Trump represents the BEGINNING of an END, so try PRODUCTIVELY using the very wee, small, crack, dent, space, opening, he already creates in an otherwise unchallenged POWER VACUUM.

Of course, even TRYING to take organizing advantage of a wee bit of political space opened by Trump, one has to overcome, disregard, pass a hurdle, gauntlet, of FAKE OPPOSITION intent on throwing spears in your path!:

$17 TRILLION PENSION FUND MONIES, GIVE OR TAKE


I REPEAT in ALL posts a mantra about USA LABOR PENSION (retirement) FUND INVESTMENT and WHY NO PRINCIPLED CLASS OPPOSITION and COMPROMISE exists in this country, extending outwards, elsewhere.

Well, above figure, see link below, MORE OR LESS represents gross estimated value of USA Pension (retirement) Fund, commonly referred to as INSTITUTIONAL, INVESTMENT.

The USA being among the world's LARGEST.

REVISED, CURRENT, best guess-estimates NOW RUN OVER $20 TRILLION!

Link below being from 2010-11, not THE most current.

These figures vary depending on source, date, but, it really does not matter for MY purposes.

Information available on this subject being SO prolific, dense, I merely chose RANDOMLY a small, simple, link to make my point.

One can research DETAILS and DATA forever since specifics are voluminous, indicated by many trillions!

MULTIPLE, EXPONENTIAL, TRILLIONS, with a TR, not B, sufficient to make the/my point.

Precise accuracy NOT necessary in this case.


Be clear.

Pensions, retirement, funds, in WHATEVER FORM, shape, they may take, whether as DEFINED, PRIVATE, GOVERNMENT, INVEST in SPECULATIVE STOCK MARKET FLAVORED ENTITIES OF ONE OR ANOTHER SORT.

GUARANTEES DO NOT EXIST.

ALL depends on fluctuating MARKET VALUES, hedge funds, commodities, interest rates, annuities, exotic financial tools, derivatives, casino capitalism.

Stock market pension fund investment represents THE OPPOSITE, ANTITHESIS, thus, by definition, COMPETITOR of what HERE is known as a NON, or, NOT FOR PROFIT, GOVERNMENT RUN, NATIONAL entity called SOCIAL SECURITY,  an "entitlement"
benefit system for elderly; anyone with ANY working history, background, reaching age 66 automatically eligible with an optional, but, reduced, early benefit for 62, I believe.
(Age eligibility modifies upwards slightly from time to time.)

And, a NON-PROFIT GOVERNMENT MEDICAL HEALTH INSURANCE SYSTEM, MEDICARE, TIED TO SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFIT ELIGIBILITY at age 66.


Monies NOW ALLOCATED by our PRIVATE PENSION FUND AND HEALTH CARE INVESTMENT SYSTEM, SHOULD AND MUST, INSTEAD, GO DIRECTLY TO SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE to EXPAND BOTH SYSTEMS, rather than into subsidizing a casino stock market or any other profit generating and speculative financial instrument.

Labor unions MUST DIVEST THEMSELVES OUT OF THEIR CURRENT BUSINESS PRACTISE OF PRIVATE PENSION AND HEALTH CARE INVESTMENT NEGOTIATIONS as bargaining agents, tools.


It represents a basic, fundamental, contradiction and conflict of interest.

LABOR UNIONS play Russian Roulette with employee pension contributions, bundling and investing them into profit generating vehicles, along with ensuing corruption, CORPORATE, POLITICAL, MARRIAGES, kickbacks, commissions, all those nice little schemes.


IF an individual CHOOSES to invest his or her OWN money in a gambling stock market casino or any other profit generating business, activity, then, he or she bears FULL consequences of their OWN ACTIONS.

But, when intermediaries like our nominal labor unions, AFL-CIA/SEIU, AGGREGATE, BUNDLE, COLLECT, LARGE SUMS OF MONIES for and from employees, as middlemen, representative agents, an employee cedes ALL control over his or her own portfolio with NO income guarantee forthcoming despite what MAY be promised. 

Guarantee being ILLUSORY.

It depends on CORPORATE SHAREHOLDER VALUE, PROFIT, DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION, INTENSIFIED EXPLOITATION, RAPE, PLUNDER, AND, ALL ELSE ATTENDANT TO PRIVATE CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP and CAPITAL development.

And, once again, as in every other supposedly private enterprise in this country, GOVERNMENT becomes an insurer, or, payer, of last resort with insolvent, bankrupt, pension funds, but, government does NOT NECESSARILY mean equal, full, or, even ANY compensation, depending on disparate legal circumstances of pension, union, corporate, insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation, obligations:

TRUMP AND BEYOND


I thought a recent Trump video link below especially helpful, insightful, as his crowds are NOT manufactured like ALL other "candidates," especially FAKE, ERSATZ, Karl Rove/Soros/NOW a Pope thrown into the bargain for good measure, Born Again, oxymoron, Democratic Socialist Sanders and suckers following him.

However, only 2 basic themes, parts, of Trump's campaign issues, points, are THE ones garnering MOST, if not ALL, his support and attention namely--
TRADE DEALS and MANUFACTURING JOB LOSS, and, comments on a rigged party primary system.

The rest basically represents garbage, nonsense, including his Great Wall, educational reforms, etc.

Remember, a "tear down this wall" slogan used by someone truly deplorable, which, at that time, our NAZI PROPAGANDISTS argued was to keep people in, not out, said they.

Trump, in another rally, even FALSELY characterized Sanders as a "Communist," AN EQUAL LIE, FARTHEST FROM THE TRUTH AND TRUMP KNOWS IT full well!!

LIKE ISIS, a Saudi manufactured group of mercenaries and provocateurs.

The US IS NOT and NEVER WAS GREAT as Trump asserts--except POST WWII, THE GREATEST REACTIONARY FORCE ON PLANET EARTH, a job they inherited as a consequence of a VERY prostrate Europe, CONTINUING TO THIS VERY DAY.

The rest of what he says being empty rhetoric, propaganda, mythology, NOT HISTORY!

NYC values has much to do with LIBERAL philosophy necessitated by its eclectic, amorphous, polyglot, cosmopolitan, population, often denigrated elsewhere as a US Sodom and Gomorrah.

BUT, ALSO, NY CITY, had, as I indicated in previous posts, a CITY SYSTEM of FREE QUALITY HIGHER EDUCATION, COLLEGE, for all ITS citizens, extensive public transportation, a  MILLION OR SO RENT CONTROLLED APTS, A NATIONAL CENTER OF PUBLISHING, HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF USED AND NEW DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN BOOK STORES, INEXPENSIVE, INDEPENDENT, FOREIGN FILM OUTLETS, FOOD, ART, a vast cultural phenomena and a WORKING CLASS CITY with LARGE TRADE UNIONS and manufacturing.

STILL, with that above, NYC had extensive POVERTY, slums, ghettos, and NO NATIONALIZED INDUSTRIES.

ABOVE bonuses NO LONGER exist.

Trump is a beneficiary of a NYC REAL ESTATE MASTER PLAN for SPECULATION, LUXURY DEVELOPMENT, CONDOS, playground of the rich and wealthy, which helped END ALL those nice little perks.

NYC rents now simply being too exorbitant for low incomes, businesses, bookstores, art, food, movies, life, anything.

Comparable real estate development occurs NOW in another DEMOCRATICALLY controlled City hosting their national convention in July in Philadelphia.

Rest assured NOBODY outside or inside will challenge their PRECEDING real estate and TAX POLICIES of virtually FREE FEDERAL STIMULUS MONIES used to finance this ARTIFICIALLY MANUFACTURED REAL ESTATE BOOM AS WELL AS 10 YEAR LOCAL REAL ESTATE TAX ABATEMENTS.

LOCAL REAL ESTATE VALUES MULTIPLIED BY FACTORS OF 10 OR MORE OVERNIGHT along with TAXES for EVERYONE ELSE.

I can NOT vouch for these ESTIMATES, but, I believe, local tax relief for LUXURY housing represents a loss to the City in the range of 90 MILLION annually, plus or minus, more or less!
That's alot for a RELATIVELY SMALL City bleeding financially and constantly moaning about its school system funding, which, like ALL others, relies predominantly, heavily, on REAL ESTATE TAX.

So, everyone else must offset, supplement, preceding LOSS!

Additionally, as I have indicated, MONSTER, TWIN, FRANKENSTEIN, PRIVATE, CABLE AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANIES VERIZON AND COMCAST PAY NO FEES TO RIP UP CITY STREETS PROVIDING REDUNDANT, EXORBITANT, CRAPPY, BROADBAND SERVICES when MUNICIPAL BROADBAND COULD HAVE EXISTED!

I also DEPLORE removal of PUBLIC pay phones with land lines--a BIG mistake, very shortsighted.

These are just a few of the more egregious highlights.

ALL PRIVATE INDUSTRY FEEDS OFF THE TROUGH, SUBSIDIES, POLICIES, OF STATE TAXPAYER MONIES.

THE STATE CONSTANTLY SUBSIDIZES PRIVATE PROFIT, ALL THE TIME!

Real estate being a PRIMARY one.
Industrial agriculture, another.
Of course, energy.
Foreign direct investment and so on.

The US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THUS, TAXPAYER MONIES, for example, subsidize ALL PRIVATE INSURANCE from an OBOOMACARE boondoggle, gift, to PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES TO WHAT IS CALLED FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC, GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED, GUARANTEED, MORTGAGE PROGRAMS (as well as Federal Income Tax homeowners deductions) FOR PRIVATE HOUSING PURCHASES.
Then, there is HOMEOWNERS AND PROPERTY INSURANCE.
The US GOVERNMENT ULTIMATELY INSURES THESE COMPANIES WHEN MASSIVE LOSS OCCURS, major catastrophes, damages, of one or another sort, floods, fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, whatever.

The US government is the PAYER OF LAST RESORT DIRECTLY TO THESE COMPANIES, but, NOT individuals, per se.

We do NOT need these PRIVATE companies.

The money could go directly to US GOVERNMENT coffers.

MILITARY PRODUCTION, which is totally wasteful, predicated upon instruments of death and destruction, AND, ITS HUMAN LABOR FORCE, BEING ANOTHER MAJOR RECIPIENT OF TAXPAYER LARGESSE.

Trump's solutions are predicated upon GLOBAL MILITARY DOMINANCE, HEGEMONY.

The US will return to THE MIDEAST regardless of WHO is in office, as well as elsewhere around the globe, including sub-Saharan Africa, an area I do NOT discuss much BUT another battleground of PRIVATE CAPITAL INTERESTS and CHINA.

The USA military is NOT defensive--we have NO external enemies knocking on our doorstep, ready to invade, ALTHOUGH WE WILL NOW.

IT IS AN OFFENSIVE, IMPERIALIST, COLONIAL, POWER PROJECTION.

So, look upon these people below and realize he/they use patriotism, America First, trade protectionism, jingoism, etc., ULTIMATELY TO FILL THE NEEDS OF IMPERIALIST POWER PROJECTION with BODIES.

To do that, one MUST have SOME DOMESTIC PRODUCTION and make them believe they have a vested interest in fighting for something tangible as well as being less dependent upon foreign, external, sources of energy, industry, etc., since that can be used as weapons against us/them.

But, all this happens BECAUSE the N WORD, nationalization, can NOT be found by ANYONE HERE, least of all our FAKE OPPOSITION.

So, we have nationalism instead.

This thanks MOSTLY, PREDOMINANTLY, TO NAZI PARTNERED LABOR UNIONS AND POLICIES ABOVE WHICH NOBODY WANTS TO CHALLENGE, CHANGE, OR, CONFRONT.

I can assure everyone, these policies will NOT have the simple desired outcomes as Trump suggests because we can NOT as a country, species, exist any longer without being able to allocate limited, scarce, resources based on NEED, PLANNING, conservation, a COMMAND ECONOMY, not greed, an endless bottom line called the GDP and a PROFITABLE production pit for SHAREHOLDER VALUE.

The WORLD simply to become an ENDLESS BATTLE GROUND with competing, conflicting, CONTRADICTORY, ECONOMIC forces, shifting trade and military alliances, insurgencies, liberation and occupation movements, labor strife, AND, NATURAL DISASTER for good measure:

From JUNE, 2004 I featured video below in earlier posts, but, as reminder, I do it again.


This is the sort of ORWELLIAN world these CERTIFIABLY INSANE project to DEFEND and EXPAND THEIR NAZI LUNATIC FRINGE PRIVATE PROFIT SYSTEM:

DAVID AND GOLIATH


Despite braggadocio about economic prowess, COMPARATIVELY MINOR real estate and casino developer and upstart billionaire David, aka, alias, Trump, possesses unmitigated audacity, temerity, BALLS, CHUTZPAH, to challenge from within BEHEMOTH, DOMINANT, GIANT, MONOPOLY GLOBAL GOLIATH Rockefeller Citigroup/Exxon/Morgan NAZI OCTOPUS DICTATORSHIP, their LONG TENTACLES, domestic and international CRIMINAL partners, cartel, clients, FRONT groups, organizations, think tanks, publications, CFR, Kissinger, NSA, NSC, virtually an entire NAZI Establishment, empire, and, those responsible NOW and BEFORE for THE MOST heinous, barbaric, atrocities and crimes against ALL humanity encompassing the 19th-21st centuries WWII, post WWII, pre WWII, nightmares of the worse imaginable, conceivable, kind, including and up to the present day.

When viewed from preceding perspective, minor player Trump phenomena, campaign, signifies a major power struggle, upset, both within and without this country.

He, it, does have a SMALL Shakespearean aspect to it.

Trump DOES possess SOME significant DOMESTIC BOURGEOISIE, CAPITAL, behind him, but, as I say, they are up against THE MOST dominant and DIRTY GLOBAL force on Planet Earth representing an ENTIRE FILTHY SYSTEM for the last century and longer.

His candidacy represents a SPLIT RULING, PROPERTIED, CLASS for reasons that can and will NOT be resolved by EITHER, or, ANY, choice involving fundamental, systemic, imperialist, neo-colonialist, PROFIT, military supremacy, trade imbalances, asset stripping, intensified, aggravated, human, industrial, and, resource exploitation, endemic poverty, manufactured gross inequalities, financial debt, climate change implications, CONTRADICTIONS.

Nonetheless, as I repeat, Trump opens a door in an existing power vacuum putting a dent into THEIR cart and raising some OBVIOUS facts, truths, questions, that everybody chooses to IGNORE at their and our OWN peril.

Trump is NOT listed on any stock exchange.

Our criminal AFL-CIA/SEIU labor unions being PARTNERED WITH PRECEDING NAZI MACHINE due in major reason to PRIVATE PENSION AND HEALTH CARE INVESTMENT FUNDS which they BUNDLE, PEDDLE, negotiate, are PART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT SOLUTION.

They are useless.

Our unions would happily construct concentration camps on the basis it/they CREATE GOOD PAYING JOBS!

Indeed, presently unions DO urban and rural real estate construction developing LUXURY HOUSING, CONDOS, BUSINESSESS, ASSET BUBBLES, thanks BOTH to FEDERAL STIMULUS MONIES and LOCAL TAX ABATEMENT, creating ever MORE POVERTY, homelessness, tax increases, FOR EVERYONE ELSE!

A ghetto in the making.

To be fair, not all construction work done is union.
Some of it non-union workers, contractors. 

So, will the NAZI machine WIN or NOT??

Stay tuned for the denouement to be held at CHALLENGING CONVENTIONS.

To conclude, below, a somewhat allegorical, or, emblematic, movie to which I have linked in the past, namely, 
"The Little Shop of Horrors."
Above represents a BIGGER Shop of Horrors, but, theme basically the same, namely, 
"FEED ME!!":
