Ted Kennedy: Destroyer of Labor Unions

May 31st, 2015

“Our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.”
-Ted Kennedy

That quote is from when Kennedy was speaking in support of The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. He wasn’t lying, and maybe it was just a coincidence that one million is the exact level of legal immigration today (see the chart here), but one wonders… Was that the long-term goal discussed in the secret meetings of the Deep State? Did Kennedy make a Freudian Slip there? Accidentally revealing the secret goal that he was working toward?

The 1965 bill was the first step toward the modern regime of mass immigration. The second major step was The Immigration Act of 1990, introduced by, you guessed it, Senator Ted Kennedy. Though with nearly all things in neoliberal America, there was bipartisan support. When President George H.W. Bush signed the bill into law, he made an incredible statement:

“I am also pleased to note that this Act facilitates immigration not just in numerical terms, but also in terms of basic entry rights of those beyond our borders.”

Entry rights. Can you imagine?

Kennedy kept busy on immigration right up until his death in 2009. For example, in his failed Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, he wanted a new “Y” visa that would have allowed in another 400,000 “temporary” guest workers per year. Kennedy said that universal health care was the “cause of his life” but it seems to me that his cause was flooding the country with cheap labor.

What does this have to do with destroying unions? Like the snake and the mongoose, the deadly enemy of unions is mass immigration – not fascists as you might think. Don’t take it from me; take it from “diversity icon” Caesar Chavez who sent men to the Mexican border to beat back illegal immigrants – literally. Beatings were administered. Chavez knew that the mass immigration of farm workers would destroy his United Farm Workers union, and that’s exactly what happened. See what I wrote here.

It is no coincidence that the middle class rose to power, along with the unions, out of the restrictive immigration conditions adopted during the Great Depression. Low immigration made people scarce, and employers had to bid for their services. The people had bargaining power. Not so today. And as a consequence, wages have stagnated, unions have shriveled, and the middle class is rapidly being beat down to working-class status.

It was Ted Kennedy who laid the foundation for our degeneration back into a Robber-Baron nation.

Monetary Policy has no Effect on Wages in a Slave Society

May 9th, 2015

Imagine that you are Fed chairman in 1830, and at an FOMC meeting you ask the committee: “how can we adjust our policy levers here at the central bank to get a wage boost for the slaves down south?” What would happen? Your fellow fed-heads would probably look at you like you were insane. Then they would offer suggestions, trying not to giggle in the process.

In the future, a big milestone in the march toward a fascist slave-state will go into the history books when Congress formally relieves the Fed of its mandate to strive for full employment. Perhaps this will be done in the aftermath of a global financial catastrophe caused by the Fed pumping absurd amounts of liquidity into the global financial system.

This is inevitable because with the ever-expanding policies of free-trade and mass-immigration, what is left of the USA’s economic boarders are rapidly melting away. And that’s why the wage data is still punk after trillions of stimulus from the Fed: wages in the formerly-sovereign USA cannot rise until after wages rise in the “Mexico” and “China” and “India” regions of the neoliberal global empire.

It’s pretty obvious that the Fed, and the ECB, have succeeded only in creating massive distortions in global financial markets (such as negative rates on German bunds). Perhaps this is why Janet Yellen is so hesitant to make even a teensy quarter-point rate hike: she knows that she will have to engineer the mother of all soft-landings. The path of least resistance for her would be to keep rates at zero until a rise in inflation forces her hand. Once the CYA is in place, she can blow up the world.

If David Rockefeller and his neoliberal oligarchy were competent, they would have removed the Fed’s full-employment mandate long before they reached their goal of commoditizing global labor at a wage-rate of $2 per hour. But they are anything but competent, and the 2008 financial crisis was only a small taste of the havoc they will wreak upon this nation.

Godspeed Janet Yellen, Godspeed.

Brush Your Teeth

May 2nd, 2015

Did you know that poor people walk around with their mouths stuffed with cotton balls to avoid that toothless, sunken look? They do that because it’s very difficult to get, and keep a job otherwise. For example, have you ever seen a Starbucks barista missing teeth? Probably not, right?

With bad teeth, your job opportunities will be limited to areas where you are out of public view, like chopping carrots in the back of a restaurant, or working as a sled dog in an Amazon warehouse mushed by neo-Nazi overseers. So, brush your teeth, because when it is your turn to be kicked to the curb by the razor-sharp claws of the great neoliberal pincers of off-shoring and mass-immigration, your teeth are the very last thing you should sacrifice.

Don’t think it can happen to you? Consider this survey: 80 Percent of U.S. Adults Face Near-Poverty, Unemployment (at some point in their lives).

Here is Linda Tirado on the subject. If you Google her, you will find plenty of controversy, but her point about teeth is indeed valid.

Record Payroll-Tax Receipts in March

April 3rd, 2015

As you probably know, the world ended on Friday morning when we learned that only 126,000 jobs were created in March, and the Dow futures dropped 165 points. However, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that that number will be revised higher eventually. Why would I do that? Because America’s payrolls were fatter in March than any other month in history. The Treasury Department withheld a gargantuan $218 billion dollars from the paychecks of American workers. That cannot happen unless there are a whole lot of workers. Here’s the Daily Treasury Statement (click to enlarge):

DTS

March topped the previous record set in December 2014, and was a solid 6.8% higher than the former record month of March 2014. Here’s a chart from the good folks at DailyJobsUpdate.com (that would be me) showing the record-breaking months:

Records

Note: the y axis begins at 150 billion so the the relative size of the bars are exaggerated.

Notice that the record set in December 2007 (left-most bar) lasted for five years. Since then, new records have been set every December and March. Payrolls are very seasonal; the retail industry staffs-up in December, and in March there are 31 days, no holidays, nobody goes on vacation, teachers are at work, and many banks pay out their bonuses.

So, March is always strong, but this March crushed last March, so things are obviously still popping. Perhaps the economy is like Wile E. Coyote in that moment when he goes over the cliff but has yet to whoosh down. And maybe you are thinking that a moving average of the withholding-tax data would shed some light, and you would be right. So why not go over to DailyJobsUpdate.com and have a look-see?

Don’t expect Zero Edge to report this; that would be against their “Death to America” mandate from the Kremlin. :-) Besides, Rick Santelli is busy snorting coke off of “Tyler Durden’s” ass as they celebrate Friday’s futures plunge.

Is Russell Brand an Illuminati Agent?

March 29th, 2015

Comedian Russell Brand wants us to believe that he is some kind of revolutionary. But look at what he said during his Messiah Complex comedy special (at 1:21:00):

“…free movement of global capital will necessitate free movement of a global labor force to meet the demands created by the free movement of that capital.”

He wasn’t making a joke there, but rather was ridiculing the Republicans on Fox News. But what’s important is that he was singing from David Rockefeller’s hymnbook. Compare what Brand said to what Rockefeller wrote in his Memoirs:

“The free flow of investment capital, goods, and people across borders will remain the fundamental factor in world economic growth…”

Brand was regurgitating Rockefeller’s neoliberal credo; that corporations should be free to rearrange the peoples and nations of the world to their liking. Would Che have approved of that? Hell no; he would have executed Brand on the spot. But if you go and look at Brand’s YouTube site, you will see him portraying himself in the iconic Che Guevara pose.

During the 2014 Congressional elections, Brand told his young audience not to vote, and everybody knows that low turnout helps the Republicans. So, I’m calling bullshit on Brand. But wait! There’s more!

Also in Messiah Complex Brand carries on about “The Divine Female Sexual Energy” (at the 1:29:00 mark). This is very reminiscent of Dan Brown’s “Divine Feminine” in The Da Vinci Code, his best-selling novel of Catholic-bashing Masonic propaganda. The Illuminati likes to criticize its arch enemy, the Catholic Church, as being patriarchal to score points with women. Ironically, the Masons are just as patriarchal, not allowing female members, and segregating them into their own ghetto organization called the Eastern Star.

Here is an inane scene from The Da Vinci Code movie where the hero, Robert Langdon (played by Tom Hanks) reads his own book, Symbols of the Sacred Feminine (2:42:37):

Langdon

Whether or not women are divine is not the issue. The point is that this meme, as far as I can tell, only exists in two places: a Masonic propaganda film, and Russel Brand’s comedy show. Curious, no? And this ties back to David Rockefeller because he has the Masonic symbol, the compass, carved into the facade of Rockefeller Center:

Great Architect

The next photo shows the evil mastermind of the 1927 film Metropolis holding a compass. That film later became a favorite of German Nazis in the 1930s:

Metropolis

And finally, the most notorious police state in history, East Germany, put the compass right on their flag:

East_Germany

According to Wikipedia: “The hammer represented the workers in the factories. The compass represented the intelligentsia, and the ring of rye the farmers.”

Russel Brand is certainly an intelligent guy. And by repeating elitist memes, he has outed himself as a member of the ruling oligarchy. So, is Brand just cashing in on the pseudo-revolutionary market as a left-wing version of Alex Jones? Or does he forward your email address over to the CIA when you subscribe to his YouTube channel?

I don’t know the answers to those questions, but in my opinion, Russel Brand ain’t no revolutionary.

Note: Putting an intelligentsia in charge, regardless of its political flavor, is the dumbest thing a nation can do. Eastern Germany is still a basket case, and our own banker intelligentsia almost destroyed this country in 2008. The multinational corporations that write our laws today are no different. If they were, we wouldn’t have 46 million people on food stamps. Being smart is not an asset when you are evil.
