Do Not Post on What You Cannot Verify

"The Next News Network" and others are claiming that within Podesta's emails there was an e-mail that claims that Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich all received money to their PACs or SuperPacs from the Clinton campaign to stay out of the way and not support Trump during the summer. Sounds exciting doesn't it? Yet, nobody is publishing a copy of the e-mail.

Don't repeat what people say if they do not link to the source or an established outlet. The real threat to bloggers, vloggers and the alternative media (i.e. not corporate controlled) is themselves. There is nothing wrong with conjecture or opinion as long as it is not stated as FACT. There is nothing wrong with asking what motivates others, there is nothing wrong with questioning motives; but, if you are going to state something as fact you had better be able to point to a source that can be sued rather than you.

Censorship is coming. It will not be government censorship per se, it will be instituted by private companies like Facebook and Twitter and has already begun. You wait and see, the United Nations will make a treaty that says what can and cannot be allowed on the internet or at least that will be the effect of the treaty. These agreements, like the actions of the European Union, are unnecessary and meant to limit free speech. Countries already have their own slander and libel laws and those apply to the internet.

Let's say I post an article claiming that Barak Obama is a gay child molester, that might be allowed as political speech about a public figure. Say the same thing about your ex-wife and you could be sued unless you have proof. If you claim it about President Obama you are just a fool. Unsubstantiated claims without evidence undermine your credibility. Protect freedom of speech by acting responsibly.

More Fake News From the Washington Post - Russia Did NOT Attack Our Power Grid

The Washington Post - Russian operation hacked a Vermont utility, showing risk to U.S. electrical grid security, officials say

The Washington Post story begins with this statement, "A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials."  Firstly the "code" is not "associated" with Russia, Grizzly Steppe or anyone other than low grade hackers. The code is basically convincing someone to reset their password and that password is then given to the hacker. This is NOT high tech hacking, this is common everyday fishing that is used by most hackers out there. Secondly, NO code was found on the Vermont utilities "system. The reset password scam was accepted by someone who worked for the utility on, supposedly. someone's work laptop. I personally managed the systems group for a $250 million a year organization and guess what, this is pretty common especially when people use their laptops to view porn or other such garbage using company laptops.

Even the Washington Post is already backing off this fake news as at the end of the article they say this, "An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electric grid. Authorities say there is no indication of that so far. The computer at Burlington Electric that was hacked was not attached to the grid."  This is a common propaganda technique used by the media, say one thing in your headline and then walk it back in the article hoping that nobody reads the whole article. The Pimpernel reads whole articles and you should too.

The mere fact that this article comes out a day after the FBI posted their fake report which showed NO evidence of Russia hacking the DNC should raise questions and if you read the whole Washington Post article you will note that the Vermont Utility and the fed don't even know when this laptop was infected.

The Smoking Pile of ...

I cannot call this a smoking gun because the gun doesn't have any bullets in it. Yesterday the FBI released the linked report claiming that Russian agencies hacked organizations in the United States.

FBI - GRIZZLY STEPPE – Russian Malicious Cyber Activity

I have actually bothered reading the report and not one shred of evidence is provided to prove that Russia was involved in anything. Read the report for yourself. Claims without evidence are fake news. The Pimpernel wouldn't make claims that I cannot substantiate so why should I accept such claims from others without proof.

Saying that someone has been hacked is different that saying you know who did it. The FBI report provides NO information about the IP addresses that were responsible for the hack, nor does it even identify the nations associated with those IP addresses. NONE.

Now a little history. The CIA lied to get us into the Vietnam war and the Iraq war. The FBI for it's part has failed to jail anyone for crashing the economy in 2007-2008. Don't accept claims that are not actionable. I have said this regarding "pizzagate" and intentionally do not make unsubstantiated claims especially ones that could cause risky actions.

Let's start with the basics of reporting and charging someone with a crime. Who, what, when, where, why and how.

Who. Does the FBI report identify who the hackers are? No it does not. It does not claim Guccifer or any other hacker was involved.

What. What specifically was taken? We are not told in the FBI report.

When. We are not told specifically when anything was taken in the report. We are told vagaries about what might have been viewed; but, not when.

Where. We are not told where the supposed hacks were from because the IP addresses of those supposedly involved are not mentioned once. If you are going to hack from Russia than the IP address would be a Russian IP.

Why. The report does not say why hacks occurred. Nowhere in the report does it say that the hacks were done to effect the election because you cannot presume intent.

How. The most basic question is left unanswered. Instead we are told all the many ways that people may have been hacked and rather than being fancy, they are the exact same ways in which spammers and thieves go after data online. There is no special Russian way of hacking, all hacking is the same and some of the most famous hackers were just kids.

Now lets get back to the media's irresponsibility. Nowhere in the FBI report does it mention WikiLeaks. Nowhere in the report does it mention Putin. Nowhere in the report does it mention how the election was impacted. So, why is the media claiming things that are NOT in the report? The corporate media is as bad as the people who made mindless extrapolations about "pizzagate". It is a shame that we have to fact check the corporate media and even worse that they provide no facts, only unsubstantiated accusations.

Let me ask this really simple question. IF the electoral college denied Trump the presidency based on this report, would you feel good about it? There is NO connection between Trump and the Russians in this report and this is the report that the Clinton supporters wanted the electoral college without the rest of us seeing it.

More on Russia and the Media

About a week ago Russia announced it was modernizing it's nuclear capability. A day or two later Trump said he would do the same. The media ignored what Russia said and stated that Trumps statement meant that he was crazy and might cause a nuclear war.

Chicago Tribune - Commentary: Could Trump start a nuclear war with a single tweet

Then comes today and President Obama throws out 35 Russian diplomats and closes two of their embassies. This is in addition to Obama saying that we are going to retaliate against Russia for "hacking the election" And how did they hack the election and where is the proof. Well, Obama claims that Russia hacked the DNC and gave the information on Podesta's e-mails to WikiLeaks. The only problem is that WikiLeaks didn't get the information from Russia, it got the information from a Sanders supporter inside the DNC and most likely from Seth Rich, the IT guy in the DNC that was shot in the back of the head.

It should probably be noted that two Russian diplomats were killed within the last week or so. The simple question is why isn't the media concerned about saber rattling by Obama and Hillary; but, worried over Trump?

The globalist corporate media has made it very clear that they did not like Brexit (Britain leaving the European Union), does not like Russia because they are not globalist in nature and detests the fact that America, Italy and France are all rejecting globalism and want national boundaries.

While this is all going on, Obama passed the new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which calls for the government using propaganda within the United States and the European Union is saying they are going to fine websites like Facebook and Twitter if they do not censor what people can say.

New York Times - Germany Threatens to Fine Facebook Over Hate Speech.

Constitutionally, foreign countries do not have the right to fine American companies for what is on the internet. It is also against international law. They have the right to ban things within their borders and keep out the internet like North Korea does; but, they do not have the right to regulate content. Now in an attempt to get around that, the United States gave away control of the internet.

The Washington Post - U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet.

Remember all my posts about ICANN, the group that oversees your ability to find things on the internet? The government gave up control of that even though our taxes paid for it and the internet. The Pimpernel was talking about this coming seven years plus ago. When I first talked about this people could not hear me. I hired computer analysts that worked for me and not one of them was ever able to tell me who owned or controlled the internet.

The dumbest people I know are all experts. They are dumb because they don't pay attention to the details. If you think you understand things, you stop learning and that is a fail because the world is always changing. People only learn as much as they need to be successful as a rule and that is true for experts. The Pimpernel seeks to become an expert on everything he talks about which is why I spend over 12 hours a day, every day, reading and watching everything I can.

My day starts with taking my dog out to do his business. After that I have my coffee and while drinking it I read Fox News, Drudge Report, the L.A. Daily News, the Los Angeles Times, Yahoo News, MSN News, one of the many English newspapers, Ain't it Cool News and then I check my blog and e-mails. That is all done by the time I finish my coffee and then the real work begins. I may or may not eat something; but, usually not or something like a pickle or an olive. Then I check my phone to see if I got any calls or texts. Then I begin by reading all the offbeat and alternative media I can from the left, right and any other perspective that you can imagine. That is followed by watching and listening to all the media from the day before and that happened in the morning.

About 7 or 8 years ago I was on a website as a simple member. I met one of the owners, a systems consultant. I told her that they were going to regulate the internet and control what you could say. She laughed at me and called me a conspiracy theorist. She then moved to Australia and found out that they wanted to control which websites you could visit. That woke her up along with something else that she never told me about; but, I could see impacted her.

This blog was specifically created to be a magic trick, an illusion for a very few people who were watching the Pimpernel, ergo the name which I have used since day one. Try reading the Scarlett Pimpernel and it begins to become clearer.  Yet, I only publish what I can back up and believe to show bits of truth, even if that truth is the intent behind those who seek to control you. I let you see their words in documents of theirs, often on their own websites. I write to confuse the people who seek to monitor me and inform those who seek to understand how this world works.

When they begin censoring blogs, they may come after this little thing. Not at first; but later. The mistake is in thinking that I did not plan for these changes that I have been writing about for almost a decade. Here is what is going to happen next and it is very tricky.

Firstly, international bodies like the European Union will begin to fine companies like Facebook or Twitter for allowing "fake news" and "hate speech and "offensive language" and anything other useful buzz phrases they come up with. The Facebooks and Twitters of the world will then pass those charges on to their users by putting in their agreements that if they are sued for what you write then you are responsible for the fine and because nobody reads those terms of use agreements, the courts will begin (not at the first case but after it) enforcing those agreements and dissent will come at a literal price. Get it?

Let me ask a simple question. If North Korea said they had the right to fine Facebook for allowing people to say it was a bad government, would we allow that? So why would we allow the European Union to do the same?

More Hypocricy and Stupidity

I don't quite know what President Obama is attempting to do as he leaves office. First he lets Israel be censored by the United Nations over Israelis who are building homes in the Sinai while at the same time he is protecting illegal aliens in America. Lets think about this a little bit more.

The United States is allowing people to disregard our borders, come here illegally, receive benefits and stay here even after they break our laws by committing violent crimes; but, he doesn't believe Israelis should be allowed to live outside of their borders. Wait, it gets better, President Obama believes that Syrians and others from the middle east should be allowed to move into Europe without any vetting; but, he doesn't believe Israelis should be allowed to move into Syria or other Arab areas without permission.

Today the President announced he is kicking out 35 Russians from the United States because he is mad at their government; but, he doesn't believe we should kick out Iranians because we are mad at their government or Saudis because their government supports terrorists like the ones who blew up the twin towers.

Hillary Clinton supports open borders and bringing in millions of immigrants, in-vetted, from the middle east; but, doesn't believe you should be allowed to leave this country without a passport and supported the no fly list to prevent people from leaving this country. Where is the consistency with any of these people? Let me ask this simple question, why do I need a passport to go to England or France or Germany; but, Arabs do not when they come from countries that are known to have large numbers of terrorists?

MSN - Fiscal Times - Trump jolts the pharmaceutical industry with vow to 'bring down drug prices'.  Something that is not being talked about much is the fact that Trump intends to go after big pharma to bring down drug prices. I wonder why the media is not supporting and talking about this more? Oh yeah, I forgot, we are one of the few western countries that allows pharmaceutical companies to advertise their products on television and in newspapers.

MSN - AP - What it means if Trump names China a currency manipulator.  When President Obama calls China a currency manipulator he gets praise in the media, when Trump says it, the media says he is lying.

The Express - SCIENCE WARNING: Messing with genes could WIPE OUT geniuses from the earth.  The title sort of says it all.

Pimpernel Had an Amazing Year

I began this year losing my apartment and being forced to move. It turned out to be a great thing and I liked where I lived. This is a better situation. We see so many things in a year. I watched the establishment wring their hands and become hysterical over Trump becoming President. I told you I didn't care if Trump or Sanders won as long as the establishment understood that this is their "let them eat cake" moment. If they don't catch on, I am scared for what the future may hold.

The year ends with my wishing others to heal and my being offered a substantial amount of money to do the thing I do the way I do it. I enjoyed 2016 and look forward to 2017. I hope you do too.

Media Contradicts Itself, Again About Trump

Ever since election night the corporate media has been claiming that Trump is a pawn of the Russians. Stephen Colbert literally claimed that the election meant that the Russians had won the cold war. The media has been talking about Russia as if it were still a communist nation while ignoring the fact that China IS a communist nation.

Now the media is claiming that Trump wants a new cold war and is antagonizing Russia by saying we need to upgrade our nuclear arsenal. You cannot have it both ways, either Trump is working for Russia or he is a new cold war advocate.

The media's response to Trump exposes itself for what it is, propaganda and not very convincing at that.

Electoral College Lies

The establishment is actively fighting to fix the electoral college and the mainstream media seems unconcerned about it. In fact, there is a new video from celebrities calling for members of the electoral college who are pledged to vote for Trump to vote for anyone else. You should watch this and get angry.

YouTube - A Message for Electors to Unite For America.

I could not be more disgusted. I will explain why.

They begin by saying they are making a message specifically for the members of the electoral college. Why? They are not talkin to all Americans because they don't care about all Americans. They are actively promoting rigging the electoral college and in the open. What is wrong with them?

At about 5 seconds in they make the claim that the electoral college to protect us from a demagogue. Please, idiot morons that do not have legal degrees, don't preach the constitution to me. I not only have a Law Degree with honors; but, one of those honors is the American Jurisprudence Award for Constitutional Law. It drives me crazy when people who haven't spent their lives learning about this tell me what it means and make basic mistakes. Which they do for the rest of the video. It is okay to disagree over minutia; but, you should at least understand the basics and they don't.

Martin Sheen quotes the Federalist Papers without understanding that they are not dispositive of anything. They were specifically written to urge for the ratification of the constitution by one side. They were propaganda pieces, read your history morons. This is a basic thing in law, it is pretty simple. A judge must ask himself what was intended when a law was written to try and be true to it. Sometimes that is tough because some laws were written when blacks were considered less than a whole person and women were not considered people who could vote at all. The difference between strict and loose constructionists of the constitution is NOT simple.

Hamilton was an elitist. Hamilton did not believe in democracy for all. He believed that your betters should choose for you and he lost that battle. The constitution allowed people other than land owners to vote too. By the way, Hamilton did not write the Constitution so all he could do was given an opinion and suggestions.

This video takes comments from Hamilton about why the electoral was useful in limiting democracy and claims they are the truth; but, it is not correct. The truth is what was passed is what is law. The truth is what was passed got passed because it did not say what he wrote in the Federalist papers. The fact is that many states passed the constitution with an electoral college because it gave a say to the states with fewer people rather than have all decisions being made by the large cities, it gave some say to the rural areas too. If it had been to only benefit the big cities then many states would not have joined the union.

After saying misinformation about what the constitution means they then proceed to tell the electors to "vote their conscience". What a lot of garbage. They were not given the job to vote their conscience as that would deny democracy to those who disagree with the elites and we didn't pass that. We did not create a House of Lords. We already have elected federal officials for every state and each state has as many senators and representatives in congress as they have electors in the electoral college. That is why if the electoral college does not do it's job, the election is thrown into the congress and that is what these people really want; but, they are not smart or truthful enough to tell you that.

What elitists like is when your decisions can be made by unelected bureaucrats and that is what electors are. Did you vote for electors or candidates? The parties pick your electors and that is NOT in the constitution.

One of the imbeciles in the video says that the American people trust that the voice of the electors speaks for us all. That is nonsense. They only speak for the voters of their state. They were chosen to go to Washington D.C. to represents the voters of their states choice. That is the only reason they get to vote.

The real endgame is not to have Trump denied the presidency by the electoral college because it will only get thrown to the congress and they know that and admit that in the video. The real endgame is to ignore the smaller states and the Midwest. That is the same reason that many now want to eliminate the electoral college. Their real game is to let the congress which does not represent you now choose your president; but, we did not create a Parliament like England. We did not choose to have the congress pick our president, we wanted the states to pick our president based on who the people in their state voted for.

This video is not proclaiming democracy, it is calling for elitism and what would it mean for the future if the states do not choose the president based on the electoral college? What would the precedent of allowing electors to pick our next president be when they were not sent to the electoral college to do that? It would mean the end of representational democracy, not the beginning of direct democracy.

I Am Afraid My Dog Will Be Deported

I am petrified that my dog will be deported. He is a Mexican Chihuahua and has been fixed, which I guess makes him transgendered. I don't dress him up in dresses so I cannot call him a transvestite. He cried the night Trump got elected and so did I. President elect Trump, please don't deport my dog.

FYI - The truth is that I do have a Chihuahua; but, he is not fixed. I paid the extra money to let him keep his testicles and I don't actually breed him. I pay the extra money so that I don't have to force him to have a sex change operation. Why is it that people who are okay with transgender think all dogs must loose their gender and sexuality. Why do people who are good with all gender identifications believe dogs must be spayed or neutered?

Why do people who are against all circumcisions think it is okay to spay and neuter dogs? Why do the people who are animal rights people believe that all dogs should be spayed or neutered?

You will say that it is different, that it is a case of too many stray dogs. Hmmm, if you believe that then are you against killing other wild animals when they overpopulate, like mountain lions? The United States government has allowed the killing of untold numbers of wild horses, why didn't they just spay and neuter them?

Long time readers will know, this blog has switched it's purpose many times. I think the last year was mostly about the media and the election lies. I think I should make it's new direction just looking at throwing curve balls at people's inconsistencies.

Calling For Faithless Electors Has Nothing to do With Russia

Fox - Podesta backs bid to overturn electoral vote.

Yahoo - The December 19 Electoral College Vote Must Be Postponed Until We Figure Out What's Going On With Russian Electoral Interference.

The Morning Call - Electoral College should support Kasich, not Trump.                   

YouTube - CNN - Ex-CIA operative calls for new election

Reuters - Exclusive: Top U.S. spy agency has not embraced CIA assessment on Russia hacking - sources. Wait the head of the organization that oversees all 17 intelligence agencies in the United States does not believe there is proof that Russia hacked anything.

There is currently a lot of talk about why electors to the electoral college should vote for someone other than Trump. The lie is that they are promoting is that Russia hacked Podesta's emails and gave them to WikiLeaks. I will prove this is a lie.

Firstly, here is the post I wrote in March before Trump had even become the Republican nominee.

TTIIY - Why Do We Pay For Non-Democratic and Non-Representative Primaries.  In it I linked to a post in the Washington Post.

Washington Post - The electoral college could still stop Trump, even if he wins the popular vote.  At the time I wrote that post, WikiLeaks had not released Podesta's emails and Russia wasn't discussed AT ALL.

TTIIY - Manipulating the Electoral College to Fix the Race.  I wrote this post back in August, prior to Trump winning and linked to three separate articles calling for the electoral college to refuse to vote for Trump if he won the election. None of those articles discussed Russia or WikiLeaks as being the reason for the electors to violate their constitutional duty. The linked articles are from the same newspapers that are now calling for faithless electors because of Russia, the only thing that has changed is their excuse.

Free Speech and "Fake News"

Anyone who reads my blog will notice that I am selective in who I will link to. However, in addition to the mainstream media that I will link to, I also read and watch lots of alternative media; both left and right. Today I am going to link and embed some of these alternative sources.

Since the election has ended there has been a concerted effort to go after the alternative media and has been labeling all non-corporate media as "fake news". The poster child for this attack has been "pizzagate". Now, I personally wrote a post here saying that those pushing the pizzagate narrative were being foolish and libelous. My point was simple, if you cannot provide actionable evidence of a crime then you should not accuse people of committing a crime. I also stated in that post that this story would be used to limit free speech and now it is.

One of the people who has been accused of being a leader in fake news is Alex Jones of Infowars. I do not recall ever having linked to his site; but, I read and watch his reports daily. In fact I also watch The Young Turks daily and they are the exact opposite of Infowars on most issues. Jones would be associated with the Libertarian-Patriot movement and The Young Turks are associated with the Progressive movement. I watch both and many more to get a 360 degree perspective on the news. I don't link to or agree with either of them most of the time because I do not believe in either a left or right perspective and have said many times that there is no more Democratic party or Republican party, their is just a corporate party using the Democrats and Republicans for the benefit of the establishment and wealthy.

The last 18 months have exposed the mainstream media as completely biased and this is not surprising as 90% of our media is owned by 6 companies. Monopolies always ignore the truth and what is correct in exchange for having their monopoly. This election cycle we have seen members of the media openly say they do not need to be objective (Washington Post and New York Times among others) and have seen them provide debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of debates, clear articles through the Clinton campaign and countless actions designed to propagandize in order to get Hillary elected. The result of their failure to determine the outcome of the election is that companies are now questioning the value of the mainstream media in selling products and ideas and advertising revenue is dropping across the board for them. At the same time, the alternative media is exploding and growing.

As the mainstream media goes after the alternative media I think my readers should know what is out there and judge for themselves these alternative sources.

So, here is some of the alternative media that I read daily.

YouTube - The Alex Jones Channel

YouTube - H.A. Goodman
Mr. Goodman is a Sanders supporter and progressive. He is not a conservative or even a Republican.

YouTube - styxhexenhammer666
Styx is a Libertarian and an Occultist. Having said that, he gives a fairly good overview of facts and his analysis is worthy of hearing.

YouTube - The Jimmy Dore Show
Mr. Dore is a Progressive and a sometime comedian.

YouTube - Secular Talk
The person who makes this show is a Progressive and anti-religious; but, again some good analysis.

YouTube - Mark Dice
I don't watch this guy everyday as I find him somewhat annoying; but, sometimes he is funny and points out things worth thinking about.

YouTube - The Young Turks
Cenk, the leader of this channel. is a Progressive and Sanders supporter.

Patent Law and Jobs

So President elect Trump convinced Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the United States that they were going to send to Mexico and certain Republicans complained that he was picking winners and losers. They have stated that the President should not get involved in business matters. I want to discuss what can be done to get the attention of companies that outsource.

Lets consider only enforcing patent laws for companies that build products in the United States. Giving patents is choosing winners and losers. If it is wrong to pick winners and losers than we can eliminate patents and copyright.

Other things we can do is refuse to allow products to be sold in the United States if the products were not made in an environmentally friendly way or if they have been transported here on one of the 500 hundred cargo ships that pollute more than ALL the cars in the United States combined. We already ban many products, like elephant ivory, that people wish to sell.

Finally, if a company hides money overseas then we nationalize them and bring the money back. If you don't pay your taxes the government can take your house from you. There are a lot of things that could be done to bring jobs back.

Money and Media

YouTube - Mark Blyth ─ Global Trumpism.  This is a good video of a lecture by a world famous economist. What he is discussing is anti-globalism on the left and right. I don't agree with everything he said; but, his discussion of the economy is dead on.

Yahoo - Fannie and Freddie's fate depends on whether Trump goes with John or Jeb.  The reality is that Wall Street would like is for the government to give Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to Wall Street. We created it, we funded it and Wall Street wants the profit. They have been saying this for a couple of years and I wrote about it them, this is just a reminder.

YouTube - The Media's Meltdown Over Donald Trump Victory - The Bolt Report.  The view from Australia and New Zealand. Interesting to see how they understand that the election was driven by people wanting jobs while our own media does not.

Bloomberg - Ford Willing to Work With Trump If Policies Are Right: CEO.  Ford in a preemptive roll is saying that they will keep jobs here if they get to tell the government what the fuel economy goals should be. That approach will be a loser with democrats and Trump supporters.

YouTube - UKIP Nigel Farage MEP on BBC Questions - Donald Trump & BREXIT.  The views in England regarding Trump.

Yahoo - Reuters - Web giants to cooperate on removal of extremist content.  "Web giants YouTube , Facebook , Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database." This is called illegal collusion and is a violation of anti-trust laws.

The Economy and Trump

Washington Post - Trump just scored perhaps the biggest victory of his new tenure. But it comes with a huge asterisk.  Lets start with the fact that the Washington Post hates Trump and go back and look at the links I posted to their articles over the last year and a half. They knew Trump was going to win the electoral college six months ago and back then were talking about how electors could be faithless to stop him from winning while still saying it was impossible for him to win. They knew the polls were lies. Well, Trump convinced Carrier (the air conditioner manufacturer) to keep 1,000 jobs in the United States that were scheduled to be sent to Mexico and he did it in a brilliant way. He threatened to not give their parent company government contracts and the parent company makes war machines.

The only thing the United States makes in the United States is war machines. It provides the best jobs here and it is a crime and treason to give those patents to other countries. LOL. In fact, it is an international crime to sell nuclear secrets and many other weapon secrets. Real hard to outsource. Trump knew that these companies are connected and that subsidiaries are an illusion. Why haven't we done this before? Why didn't Obama do it before? Why did Bush allow Halliburton, the people who make the most money from supplying the army, keep their headquarters in the United States and allow them to move their headquarters to Dubai? You think Halliburton might be just a little bit concerned right now. It was a brilliant move, period. I wish I had thought of it.


So I started this post yesterday and did not finish it. Today the media responded to Trump saving these manufacturing jobs.

Yahoo - CNBC - Trump's Carrier speech 'absolutely chilling,' economic analyst says.

MSN - USA Today - Carrier incentives stir debate over 'rewarding' offshoring.

The response to saving manufacturing jobs is to say that it is a bad thing. Huh? You have to scratch your head and wonder why keeping manufacturing jobs here is a bad thing. The answer is depressing. For the past 40 years the politicians have all been owned by the business class. The government has been unresponsive to the voters. Trump has shown he meant what he said and that bothers the owners who were used to doing whatever they want.

Let me say it again. They don't care about you or this country and do not like the fact that you can vote to change the rules and control the companies. They don't like democracy, they don't like a strong middle class and they like rigging the system. Trump they fear will fight back.
