When Stimulus Isn’t!

Spending, at the Federal Level is either Wealth Consumption or Debt Creation; often it’s both. Government is rarely, if ever, capable of Investing primarily because Politicians use the Government’s ability to tax as a form of political vice the consequence of which is that nothing is ever created that inures a recurring monetary benefit either to the government or to the taxpayer who pays for it. If these statements/observations weren’t true then there’d be no 24 Trillion and growing federal debt and 200 plus Trillion in unfunded mandates.

Richard Blumenthal & Mazie Hirono’s mission matters more (than truth)!

Understanding the deplorable state of the processes of government it is rightly appropriate to point out that these two Senators are the ornamental fringe of a much larger game of staged whoresmanship, one whose sole purpose is to keep Trump from a court upending nomination. Whatever Ms. Blasey-Ford endured can only be known by her and no amount of empathy can or should be used as a tool for endorsing allegations, or should we encourage the fashionability of synthetic rage staged by political operatives expressly for the purpose of overturning the foundational core of our legal system so as to facilitate a temporal power grab. We need to be reminded that it is the durability of our legal system that needs to be respected so that its reliability is further enhanced by our unending reverence for it.

G7:Meeting and Understanding the Structure of Generational Waste

Yes of course! Merkel (Germany), Macron (France) and Trudeau (Canada) should be unsettled by President Trump wanting to carve-out a new trade structure, after all, since the end of World War II, the U.S. has bent-over backwards to resuscitate these Post-War Economies. The problem is that although the injection of inflationary monetary policies may have awakened their capabilities it will never, on its own, keep them alive and these Heads of State, and I’m speaking specifically of the EU and Canada, need the U.S. to help keep their social experiments, their Corporate Elite afloat. The Opposition-Press, by its insistence that the President has somehow offended our Allies, has once again injected its signature hyperbole into an issue it is ill prepared to intelligently discuss, for now however let’s leave it at this: One must understand that the public friction demonstrated by Ms. Merkel and Mr. Trudeau is not over national (public) interests but Corporate Financial/Economic Interests. In effect what the global-elite has accomplished is to have imbedded a fiat monetary policy concealing within it an incrementally expanding global trade policy built on the theory of comparative-advantage, the idea that some States perform certain things/tasks more effectively than others, ignoring the fact that this notion on its own serves to imbalance the equation whilst ignoring the fact that there are certain components of the “viable trade equation” that must ultimately achieve balance if they are to work; as it is (presently) we just blow them up and call it a recession/depression. Think of it this way: the U.S. may have an exemplary capacity for consuming things however for the scheme to work if it must also have a self-multiplying capacity to offset the drain, the ability to produce wealth from which it draws funds from to pay for its consumption, it doesn’t of course and therein lies the problem. In short order, nothing you are told that works the way it should works at all!

GOP Bill Hurrah! Not So Fast!

In the end, success or failure of the GOP Tax Reform depends on five key prospects:

(1) Whether or not the effort (the new/modified Tax Code) sufficiently incentivizes Business to invest in domestic capacity. Which,

(2) will then triggers, it is hoped, a massive surge in domestic economic activity including employment and wage increases. The result of which,

(3) it is believed will generate an incoming flood of Tax Revenues which can then be used to,

SALT: The Distortions of Privilege

Prior to the 16th Amendment (1913), and by no coincidence the very same year the Federal Reserve Act was thrust upon an unsuspecting population, direct taxes levied upon any individual (by the government) was deemed a violation of the U.S. Constitution unless it was “apportioned” among the States in a manner proportionate to that State’s population to that of the entire national census.
