    For your callow considerations...

    http://www.morethanonelife.com/ldquogive-me-an-asshole-who-can-play-helliprdquo.html

    “Give me an asshole who can play …”

    This is a famous quote from iconic drummer, Buddy Rich. Buddy only wanted the best on stage with him. He didn’t care about their “moral character” or if they were pleasant to be around. He didn’t even care if he, himself, liked them. He hired only guys who could burn the room down with him …not boy scouts who were mediocre. Hence, the famous quote.

    President Donald Trump appears to be in trouble. A series of confessions and convictions, of and by people around him, are casting a strange, dark light on his presidency at the moment. There is a perception (at least) that shady stuff has gone on around this guy. And when shady stuff constantly goes on around someone in charge, you have to conclude that the guy in charge is okay with shady stuff.

    Has he hung around tax evaders and money launderers? Clearly. Did he pay off porn stars and Playboy Playmates to keep their dalliances quiet? I think we can safely conclude that he did. Is he a petulant child in the Twitter-verse? One hundred percent. Does he say things in public my mother would slap me for saying? Literally, everyday. Did he conspire with a foreign power to win an election? Maybe. Will any of this make a difference to his supporters? That’s a complicated answer. Let me explain …

    I have a theory that all presidential elections are reactions to the sitting president at the time. I’m old enough to remember Jimmy Carter getting elected (in large part) because he was a wholesome, moral breath of fresh air in an atmosphere of corruption and scandal created during the Nixon years. I was only a kid, but I distinctly remember entire churches being excited to go out and vote for an openly Christian man for president. Then, after four years of that disaster, I remember those same people breaking speed limit laws to get to the polls to vote for Reagan as fast as they could.

    The conditions that created a “president Trump” kinda started with Bill Clinton, who led to George W Bush …who led to Barack Obama.

    By the time we got to him, Mr Obama was going to be the antidote to incompetence and corruption and war mongering and, yes …even racism. But a very strange thing happened during Mr Obama’s presidency. Racism didn’t end. Corruption didn’t end. Wars didn’t end. And incompetence might’ve actually gotten worse. My full day of talking to the customer service agent at the newly created healthcare exchange, did NOT leave me confident.

    And what was discovered during Mr Obama’s 8 years, was that in a free market nation, over-taxing, over-regulating and a leader who constantly berates the business community and supports policies that place more emphasis on celebrating the “diversity” of people groups than on law and order for every individual, and foreign policies that take everything but the nation you’ve been elected to lead into account, simply doesn’t work.

    Well there 'was' some funny right leaning things that I thought the DSP crowd would enjoy...

    but further investigation revealed that all sources were Trump related Russian media sources. Oh.

    Read the link at your own peril but it painted tRump in a semi-funny, if somewhat tolerable 'doofus' light...



    Should of known it was fake.

    But I smiled.

    Prevented Hillary from being president.

    We'd probably be at war with them by now if she was in office.

    Look at all that money not being made by devaluing foreign real estate so the IMF can buy it all up in the future and keep the people of the land as permaslaves.

    We should learn from Kuwait.
    Look who became millionaires off that war.
    Follow the money trail to find the money.

    Sure the MIC gets all the attention and that iron triangle is always the first to profit.
    But the big money comes after the fact. And not just from the oil and other natural reserves.

    If you can put in 1 dollar knowing that even if all assumptions and historical precedents are wrong and you don't make money the most you will lose is 10-20 cents from that dollar.
    But if the data is correct (it is) then your 1 dollar will bring back an average of a 2 to 4 dollar return multiplied by itself which would make a 4 dollar return into a 16 dollar return.
    If you have $100k that is the easiest way to become a millionaire.

    You then push that money on to the next wartorn area that is about to get redeveloped in a few years.
    It is the doctrine of gentrification writ large.
    Except you don't have to buy real estate.
    You buy the money locals use to buy real estate and other goods in their increasingly market/commerce/consumer/capitalist driven new society.

    And the biggest of them all is coming soon.
    Just like the king of the south will rise again so will Babylon.
    And Babylonians have the most exquisite of tastes when they have money to burn.
    When people are into burning money its good to be in the money making business.

    Yeah you wonder, why are the locals destroying their own refineries? because the locals got zero from them.. and they were paid to do so by Halliburton who benefitted from their re-piping.

    and I suppose that one could construe 'Babylonians' as anyone living in a modern metropolis where anything and everything is available at all hours on demand and life is all about money first, next and last. I could see that in Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai, London and especially San Francisco much more so than in small towns where values are different
    modern mega Gomorahs one and all


    Did I get that close enough?

    Close.
    But you missed the reference to the king of the south. That is ok because it is a biblical reference and that is your weak spot.
    Of course, all biblical references should be standard since great poets and authors of the past 2k years have been mining these references to create their stories.
    I was not speaking on Babylon at large but Babylon the nation-state. Which is why I mentioned Rise Again, the kind of the SOUTH in the same breath. This is future tense.
    Prior to that, I mentioned Kuwait and what happened there before and after the war.
    What was Kuwait money trading at vs the US$ before the war, what was it trading at during the war and what did it trade at after the war?
    I contrasted that with Babylon which is the 'romantic' name for Iraq. Like how the Iranians are called Persians.

    The Babylon you talked about is called Confusion. We are in the land of confusion and we are an expanding empire.
    All big cities/systems fall into confusion as they attempt to ascend the ladder of civil prosperity.
    If you want to be like us there is one catch... you have to be like us.
    While it feels like progress, it feels as if we are climbing higher and higher, it feels like we are helping and doing good... we are actually in the downward spiral that is the drain to the grave. We have the process turned upside down.
    Confusion is like sun worship. It blinds you and makes your mind hazy and your heart weak.
    Stare at the sun for a little bit and you will see.
    And Sun worship in literature equates with the worship of emotions, yours and others. Being overly emotional, letting the bright rays of emotions control how you think and act and how you view the world and those around you. People that are 'woke' or 'enlightened' or any of the hippy new age shit people who just want to feel good talk about.
    The Illuminati is composed of 99% of these types of people. The same ones talking about the dreaded evil Illuminati are the left and right hands of the Illuminati. They are the foot soldiers and incorporated body of the Illuminati. And they will never know it until it is too late.
    Because that is what confusion is like. And what the Bible calls "Strong Delusion".
    This is a spiritual topic though, and not one I was really getting at. This was a more tangible post.

    I was talking about dinero. Or more precisely the original dinero, the dinar.
    You already know how money is made from the people of the land.
    You mentioned outsiders inciting locals to create chaos so big money can come in and 'fix' the chaos.
    Have you watched The Wire?
    You know that first the real estate must be turned into chaos before it can be remade into something out of nothing.
    That is how money has been mined for ages without having to dig too far down.
    From the small neighborhood block to the eastern bloc. It is why people are made to fight one another.
    Money is the root of all evil. And everyone one of us wants some of that root.
    Tell me who can resist the power of 'the precious'?
    Not even Frodo could for too long.
    If he did not repent in time he would have ended up like his little friend Fredo.

    So Babylon. It is in ruins right now. Iraq is a chaos.
    Liker Kuwait was after that war. But now?
    How much is real estate in Japan today?
    How are things economically in South Korea?
    We took on L on Vietnam, apparently... but dig deeper and follow how the money comes there. It still boils down to real estate and how it is used to generate either bulk windfalls or massive profits over time. Do you know of the trillions in gold and treasures still within sacred temples in south east asia? They opened some temples at the turn of the century but the monks regrouped and will die defending the rest of these giant vaults.
    Same with Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador.
    How did all of that Mexican real estate we got turn out? Hollywood and Silicon Valley are in old Mexico.

    Now how much is the Kuwaiti Dinar worth right now vs the Dollar?
    Go check and then think for a bit. Look at your dollar bill and tell me how many of that 1 Kuwaiti Dinar will buy?
    Now go look at how the Kuwaiti Dinar was trading before the war there.
    About the same as it is now. Not much difference. It was doing well vs the dollar.
    Except during that period where we 'liberated' it from Saddam.
    Their Dinar was pennies on the dollar.
    So how much was the Iraqi Dinar right now?
    It is worth pennies on the pennies. No joke.
    Look at what the Iraqi Dinar was worth during Saddams reign.
    Where do you think it will be at once the Haliburtons and their type are done with their latest gentrification project?

    Babylon is coming back and soon. It is not only because of biblical prophecy but because all secular historical signs point to it as well.
    That was the most opulent city the world has ever known. Give a dirt farmer massive amounts of money and he loses his head quick.
    Look at all the shit they build in Dubai. All those emirates are but a shadow of the craziness that Babylon will become.
    They did not kill Saddams dream when they killed him. They just stole his plans.
    Or do you think they killed Hitlers dream?
    Go take your German Marks of the beast and trade them in for Euros.
    And when those trades first started to happen what happened to the Italian Lira and the Greek Drachma?
    Lots of other European monies went down the tube which kills their economies and turns their society into a chaotic mess.

    Which is why the King of the South will rise again as well.
    Do you know that there is a King our there that can unite most of the world.
    It can't be a classic White European Protestant King or a Catholic or a Muslim or any one of those things.
    It has to be a King from a country that is south enough and east enough without losing its touch with the north and the west.
    A country who has a great muslim and arab tradition without sacrificing its european white sensibilities.
    Yet one who speaks a language spoken in the entire world without being English or Arab.
    The language of the conquering white man and the conquered brown man.
    There is only one King that can restore the Catholic church and bring the Muslim world closer to the west than ever before.
    Like the Phoenix that once ruled the Southern part of Europe, the Western part of Asia, the Northern part of Africa, and finally the Eastern part of the Americas and discovered and colonized most of the rest of the navigable world... the King of Spain will rise out of its Phoenician ashes and speak the original language, the mother tongue of the world and we will all be hooked on phonics.
    Irish remembers some chats of about Phoenicians back in the day.

    Now just because I talked about Phoenicians and the King of Spain and all this stuff does not mean that I mean that this is a 'good' thing.
    It is the thing that is. Things exist and they are either profitable to you or they are not. Remember that I am not talking about good or bad at all but profitable or not profitable.
    This post was about profit and where the next gold rush is going to strike.
    It is about turning a 1 into a 4 at minimal to at most 10%-20% risk.
    If you could turn 100K into 400k would you do it?
    You would ask to know the risk.
    The risk is that your 100K can become 80K if every marker is wrong and the analysts make the most colossal mistake in their history.
    That is not a lot of risk.
    Go look at what an Iraq Dinar is trading at. GO!
    Or go not.
    Because it is better to sell levis during a gold rush than to actually go and wade in the mud yourself.
    The profit is still 4 to 1 and the potential losses are minimal... from 10 to 20 percent.
    And 4 to 1 is, of course, the conservative estimate because that is the only sound way you should look at something.

    Not a fan of Kavanaugh, as he doesn't respect the 4th amendment and he would probably vote in favor of every government surveillance overreach for the next 30 years.

    ...and no comment on the accusor and the validity of the story...

    But what Fienstien did with this by sitting on
    it for two months is absolutely shameful. She should have disclosed it the moment she was in possession of the letter.
