It appeared that an 'AWFUL LOT' went crazy last week, ALL except Sir Charles, 'The Round Mound of Rebound' as his words last week were prophetic and most agreed upon. Does anyone really spend anytime thinking about statues and we certainly don't worship any of them? No one except Eisenhower perhaps, who admired General Lee's military leadership and military prowess.
Why not let the LEFT build their own monuments to past heroes? There are plenty of them if they want to spend the money on history to educate others. I would doubt that most don't even know their names like: Ida Wells Barnett, Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Harper, James Baldwin, Nat Turner, Dred Scott, Carter Woodson, Mary Bethune McLeod, Marcus Garvey, Paul Robeson, John Johnson and other lesser known individuals. Or they could just go with the already known heroes like: Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Thurgood Marshall, Medger Evers, Malcolm X, W.E.B. Dubois. The populace needs an education in history informing them of leaders that delivered the freedoms they take for granted today and possibly some would realize that you can't have freedom for some and remove that freedom for others! Just why are Venezuelans crying to end Socialism? Because they are eating sparrows and rats proof that Socialism doesn't work. Socialist leaders always evolve into dictators whom are corrupt because, total power corrupts completely! What is the LEFT thinking or are they? Are things perfect? No, but people aren't starving, or being bombed in our streets (yet). Here in the U.S. those whom do not work have subsistence at least, given by their government and provided by those who do work and pay taxes.
The populace recognizes that statues remind us of our painful history in the hopes that we never repeat our mistakes. However, that isn't the extremists plan and at this rate another Civil War or Revolution is brewing. One million souls once gave their lives in our bloodiest of wars (850,000 soldiers and 150,000 civilians) yet we SHOULD expect 20 times or 20 M, if the elites complete their mission of dividing and conquering us with paid rabble-rousers.
People need to wake up and realize that we have bigger fish to fry as countries are antagonizing the U.S. with real nuclear threats thanks to our own Kil-Liar-y selling our uranium. Every other month a new military destroyer is rammed and put out of service by rogue ships from countries that hate us. We are now down to ONLY TWO ships that could defend us from a nuclear attack. Will it take another tragedy the level of 9-11 to get the spoiled American to sit down and come together as a nation? It is really unfortunate that 'The Dictator of Dumb,' of questionable genetics, isn't friends with Charles Barkley, 'The Winn Dixie Beef Boy' instead of 'The Worm' Rodman.
The past 150 years has seen murderous Communist regimes kill 200 M people, half of which were but dissenters of the dictators parties. The worst was, Mao Zedong (not Hitler) and they ALL were Communist dictators from China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Africa, and the Middle East. The United States won the last world war and this IS the reason the U.S. is relied upon to police the world since WWII. The U.S. population is 330 M while the world's population is 7 B today. Our military, shrunk under Obama, was said to have less than 500,000 soldiers although it is increasing substantially under Trump. Meanwhile China has 2.3 M soldiers strong. Is that worrisome to anyone else? The bible says, "A 200 M army will approach Israel (Christians) from the East." Does that sound like China or possibly another threat, some refuse to name? We ALL should sense the danger that something is wrong and the danger is this! The threat of destruction from external forces surrounds us today in our homeland more so than at anytime in our history. Our internal division and dis-function, fomented over the past years has NEVER been worse than today. Internationally the U.S. is viewed as a weak target.
My real point today is that people and masses always go a little
crazy before full moons and even crazier before Total Lunar eclipses. It is a fact that people will act out during these times of the month and worse during eclipses. Animals, we know, possess a keen sense of danger, innately feel potential foreboding danger and become agitated. They will try to hide before an eclipse just as they do before a storm or tornado begins. The differences are apparent an impending darkness versus an atmospheric temperature pressure change as temperatures drop precipitously. They know immediately when something doesn't feel right, and they act on it without hesitation. During a recent Annular (large partial eclipse) people stayed home out of fear. Very few ventured out onto the streets to shop or eat at restaurants and even hotels saw their business drop. It was estimated that businesses would lose $700 M in lost productivity during the current eclipse.
Eclipses (Lunar or Solar) can be significant turning points in both stocks and commodity markets. That self destruction happened after March 7th, 1970 Total Lunar eclipse passed over the U.S. (yes, the media got it wrong again). Seven weeks later on Earth Day April 22nd, computer and tech. stocks dropped some 85% dissolving $450 M paper value for Henry Ross Perot (presidential candidate of 1992 and 1996). The cause of the market crash was low or no earnings which sounds very familiar. An eclipse is not always the case for a market slip, however we also see a Hindenburg Omen (named after the Hindenburg crash) which has been showing up with much regularity. What this means is that more stocks are hitting 52 week lows than 52 week highs on the NYSE. This event USUALLY leads to poor returns in the forthcoming days. In May of 2015 the omen showed up but nothing happened however in 2007 stocks fell by 4% in two weeks and more was to come. Most alarming is that five out of the last six Hindenburg Omens DID result in a big reversal in the stock market.
Are your senses alerting you to a potential dangerous course? Remember Lost in Space and Dr. Smith's robot alerting Will, "DANGER, Will Robinson, DANGER", "Does not compute!" "I cannot accept that course of action." One might want to temper your greed for more gains in stocks and be early to leave the party rather than too late. I recall Dr. Smith who was always in trouble for failing to heed the B9's warning and cackling comments like, "You bubble headed boobie!"
This chart of Spot Gold Futures shows the day to day gold movement to watch and dropping below the red line which would be REAL bad for gold and would support my belief that we are going lower in perhaps a big and final way this year or next.
During the year 1970 a lot was happening as Nixon invaded Cambodia and the Vietnam War wore on. Everyone had figured out that we either shouldn't be there because we weren't going to win or the government wouldn't let us win. Next, the Apollo 13 mission was almost 'Lost in Space' literally as a rupture caused loss of oxygen, water, all power and propulsion. I was tuned in more than the normal kid as my uncle worked for Rocket dyne in CA, the jet fuel company provider. Remember the movie starring Ed Harris as Gene Kranz Aero.Eng. and NASA flight director? Next throw in a recession engineered to fight inflation and a slow economy. Then in May, campus riots protesting the invasion broke out and a thousand National Guardsmen were called out to calm the student protestors. What happened next horrified the nation as four white students were killed at Kent State and two black students at Jackson State. I recall thinking the world seemed to be falling apart, my older sister was at school and my graduating brothers draft number was eleven and the hot summer had not even begun.
Not much has really changed except, 47 years later we finally got a president, like Perot, who is a non-politician. Someone whom we all believe is more in touch with the common man and less self interested than ALL our past and current politicians seem to be today. He warned us about the dangers of Super Pac's and even though we had figured that out already, we also could SEE that ALL our current politicians supported them. We voted for a man of action and while experience counts, we wanted a leader instead of a golfer and he trumped that. We don't care about the details and accept that he will say and make mistakes. We despise the lying media more everyday for arm chair quarter-backing the guy, examining ever word and step he takes and turning his sometimes (O.K. oftentimes) ill stated words as an indictment that he is a racist, xenophobe as are ALL of us deplorables that voted for him. The media today is young and liberal and voted for Hillary so they could be seen as self deprecating and politically correct. Today I like to imagine what the world would look like if we had elected Perot back in 1992. Somebody had blackmailed Perot into dropping out early and when he re-entered the race for the presidency late and he still garnered 20% of the Independent vote but not enough to be elected. There would have been NO NAFTA from Clinton as Perot had warned of its danger. He predicted what would occur with his ad of a "sucking" sound of jobs going to Mexico and the threats of illegal immigration growing rapidly! If only history's choices had been different we ALL would be better off today and the world would be different. Another reason to keep our historical statues today. Now don't miss your chance to protect your family before it's too late!
