More On The TPP And Why It Must Be Stopped – 03.30.15

March 29, 2015

The Administration wants the TPP to be seen as its legacy so they are giving maximum push to gain Fast-Track authority in Congress. This is a renewed effort. Here at the Wake-Up Call we fired up a response months ago – which apparently worked! – but we need to get ready to do so again. There is more support for this than there was before. Not much but enough to be of concern. I discuss only a partial account of why this is an execrable bill. There’s lots more (that I’ve discussed before). Listen to Mike Maloney talking about ‘net neutrality’, which basically turns the Internet into a utility, thus regulated by the dreaded FCC.  A simplified explanation of how Greece got into its mess. How Janet Yellen manipulates Wall Street. A new account describing the immense fragility of the economic situation and how the system has falsified reality in favor of the ‘in-crowd’. It’s all about to come crashing down. I explain why.

How The Economy Arrived At Its Current Point Of Absurdity – 03.27.15

March 26, 2015

The underhand, scurrilous way in which the banks passed money over to each other, courtesy of the Fed. All taxpayer money for which the taxpayer is ‘on the hook’. The bankers’ desperation has them revisiting the subprime market for even crazier loans than they made ten years ago. Listen to surreal stories of car loans made for greater than the value of the car and converting them to AAA-rated paper. Memories? The Icelandic economy is rebounding despite rogue bankers having been successfully prosecuted and jailed. Listen to a clip describing this. The economy is showing serious signs of failure. House prices are soaring despite ordinary people being unable to buy a home. The Healthcare web site STILL doesn’t work eighteen months later. Why we don’t (and won’t) have hyperinflation. The horror story of ill-educated American youth, scoring systematically last or near-last in comparative surveys with other developed countries. Journalist “presstitutes”, unwilling to tell the truth for fear of upsetting their sponsors. How their lies affect foreign policy. More on the dissolution of the American Dream.

The Unemployment Scam Revealed – 3.23.15

March 22, 2015

Lee Kuan Yew died a few minutes ago. An appreciation of his work in developing Singapore to become the powerhouse it is today. An attempt to unravel the lies and prevarications put about by the Bureau of Labor(ed) Statistics. The 5.5% unemployment rate is manifestly a sham. A breakdown of the figures shows this cannot possibly be correct. In addition, those with just one hour of employment per week are counted as ‘employed’. We delve quite deeply into the nonsense at the end of which you should, hopefully, be much wiser. The powers-that-be will go to any lengths to hide the brutal reality of a declining America from you. And when the lying (as in Vietnam) doesn’t work, they invoke other means of stifling dissent. This includes putting pressure on journalists to confirm to the government-inspired, wrong policies, otherwise risking their careers. The futility of higher education and the despair of overqualified applicants for menial jobs. The story of Tesla, a ridiculous concept, funded by politically correct regulated industries. It has a surreal twist

A Close Look At Student Loans - 03-20-15

March 19, 2015

A close look at student loans. Stripping away the feel-good repartee, we are left with a system that encourages people to sign up 4.5 million more students per year than are capable of earning a degree. Yes, it’s your money. The loan defaults are going to be epic. We’re talking $250 billion of losses. Deleveraging has not happened. Debt continues to grow. You must deleverage to solve a crisis caused by excessive debt. The inevitable collapse will be earth-shatteringly horrendous. Another clip from Nigel Farage, this time about the Greek situation. Up-coming regulation of the Internet. More on the future disaster ahead for America. Iceland has dropped its application to join the European Union. The absurdity of the European financial situation. Characterization of the U.S.A.: a decomposing corpse of a nation lorded over by a tiny clique of oligarchs who control the herd by wielding Orwellian methods of mind-control.

Full Stock Market Appraisal Louder Version - Monday 03-16-15  

March 18, 2015

Comparisons with the economic situation before and after the market’s 2009-2015 rally. Unraveling the excuses put about by the pundits. The desperate additions of funds by the companies themselves, hoping to levitate the market by adding shareholders’ money into the casino. The fuel has been spent. What are they going to do for an encore? Economists have no clue as to why bond market yields are so low. Business investment has collapsed. All available funds are being churned into the stock market. Listen to Nigel Farage talking in the European Parliament. His usual repartee does not disappoint. The fall in gasoline prices has not resuscitated the economy. It is easy to see why, despite the lies you are told. U.S. CEOs are more pessimistic about corporate earnings than ever. Earnings-per-share have risen by 250% since 2009 but revenues have grown by only 33%. Is there a disconnect there? A quick assessment of Greece.

How The Financial System Will Unravel  - Friday 03.13.15  

March 12, 2015

Debt must always be paid back or reneged upon. There is no other way. Since the current monumental pile of debt cannot possibly ever be repaid, we must face and understand the process of default. I give various scenarios, all of them excruciatingly dire but probable. Learn what happens to credit. We follow through how it seizes up, rendering all your credit cards useless overnight. You will have to live with cash. Americans don’t have much of that now. The statistics (quoted here) tell their own story. Do not take the status quo for granted. It is about to change in a dramatic way. The absurdity of the lies behind last month’s job figures which were released last week. Fox news gives America’s “most trusted news coverage”, according to a new poll from Quinnipac University. How the banks were able to doge bankruptcy six years ago and how they continue to do so today. Suicide is growing alarmingly in the United States.

The Rumbles of War over the Horizon

March 8, 2015

The emphasis today is on ‘War’. War is the theme of the Wake-Up Call for 2015 and we examine the background and possible prelude to the outbreak of such a war. We look at previous examples of war (Civil War, WW1 & 2) and find similarities in the lead-up to hostilities. Possible scenarios to look out for. The use of terrorism ( a straw man, if ever there was one) and fear-mongering by governments to pacify potential trouble-makers who oppose war. The pernicious effects of renewed subprime lending, already ramped up to levels not seen since the 2008 financial crisis.

How They Manage To Lie About the “Economic Recovery”

March 8, 2015

The Federal Reserve issued their fourth quarter Report On Household Debt And Credit last week to the sounds of silence in the mainstream media. Here’s some actual analysis which describes how they manipulated a fake recovery and kept the masses sedated, misinformed and pliable. Lots of figures for you but they tell their own story. We can even see clearly how Americans are using their credit cards to survive daily existence. You may want to listen to this section twice. You will be supremely well-informed if you understand this. How the system will ensure that only warmonger candidates will be fielded for the 2016 presidential election. Interesting observation from Edward Snowden. The ECB (European Central Bank) has started its own ‘QE’ this month. Same mistakes as the Fed and Bank Of Japan. Same results will obtain. Radicals, however, will dominate local politics. Excerpt from a Putin speech of interest. My prediction of a total collapse of the U.S. socioeconomic system.
