Political Analysis

And not by me…

This is spot on. Best, likely most accurate account of the next election cycle I have yet to read:

Look for the R’s to hand President Obama the election.

Hillary: WaPo floated her as VP again, expanding the field of professional D’s that are flirting with a subversive assault on the Obama machine.  This will be the real story of the election cycle, I’m afraid.

All things considered, how does this impact your preps and the battlespace going forward? Doesn’t matter if you don’t dig on politics. I don’t either anymore, but as it has been said before, who is in office next January will have an impact on you going forward whether you like it or not.

 

Watch the Other Hand

This may be the overriding theme for 2012 and beyond. Watch the other hand.

See this:

Unfortunately this type of blatant doublethink and outright deception is becoming more prevalent and the upcoming Time cover is a great example of how the events of the world are shaped and spun in the American mainstream media to keep the people of the United States from becoming agitated or asking too many questions.

Ask questions. When you get answers you don’t like or know to be a lie, ask again. Keep doing this until you get something resembling the truth. Out maneuver them. If I can do this on a day to day basis in business, it’s simple because in the end, I’m not that bright… 🙂

By the way, do you have any idea what the big picture implications of this really are? Quelling the American public’s tendency to get agitated? Holy crap Suzie. Doesn’t get any more conspiratorial than that. Just sayin’.

 

 

A Political Question

If one were to speculate about the global machinations of certain large, controlling groups, one could come to the conclusion that certain pieces are being put into play at this moment that would facilitate certain outcomes down a road.

I don’t know about you, but I’m seeing what appears to be a concerted effort to bring about either a second Obama term or a Gingrich presidency.

Think about it. What would a Gingrich presidency due for the failing empire? For one, it would help bolster the Ambrose Bierce quote:

“War is God’s way of teaching American’s geography.”

Based on this Zerohedge post, some of those more macro steps are being taken. Classic 4GW disruption BTW.

Seriously though, what big picture (see global) moves could be made when the empire turns it’s military resources to another target? I’m pretty sure a Gingrich presidency would enable all kinds of military and industrial (as well as banking) powers to once again, expand their investment portfolios.

Just a few random thoughts on a Tuesday.

The Worst is Yet to Come

I agree with most of this.

Uncomfortably viewing the banking sector as a curse (and not a cure) for our problems, he sees the Japanese Zombie bank experience playing out which guarantees sustainable growth is not around the corner and suggests we would be far better off medium-term if bank defaults occurred and the painful medicine is taken.

I have no financial sector debt or equity exposure either.

Macro Manuvers

Not willing to put any money on this just yet as it has been the bugaboo theme for years now, but the noise coming out of the part of the world where Iran is are ominous.

Keep an eye on it. Norway pulled out last evening according to Drudge. The Brits are essentially done as well.

Should there be overt action, make no mistake, it will have an impact here at home – especially economically.

2012 Electoral Battlespace

Re-posting CA’s stuff because I got nothing…

Already got my head covering, and ghilie, and urban camo (iPod, daypack, trendy shoes).

More to come later on, or maybe not. Trying to get motivated as a corporate drone so I can get in the woods this week.
