And the Rubber Hits the Road…

 

On-track to Destroy Liberty

MLG
Behold the mercy of Michelle Lujan Grisham.

The Governor’s unlawful Executive Order is being implemented, the vaccine mandate is being pushed, with the aid of lies and false dealing and a cowardly refusal to stand against evil by the leaders in government. As we can plainly see, the “periodic testing” alternative is really just there to say “well, technically you aren’t required to get a vaccine”… just like technically you don’t have to pay your taxes.

The so-called “religious exemption” is false-dealing at its worst: by taking them at their word, allowing them to accept or reject your application, you are submitting to a religious test. You are literally agreeing to allow them to judge your beliefs as legitimate or illegitimate, and to allow or disallow [continued] employment based thereon. — What madness is this!? How can no-one see it?

NMSU is Dead-set on this Unlawful Activity

Let me stick this in you
Our hands are tied, it’s our policy!

My place of employment is NMSU, and the administration there has been particularly unresponsive to any concerns, as in literally no response:

I am quite disappointed and frustrated with the leadership, especially as there has been no real feedback, discussion, or debate on the issues I raised before. (See this post.) — As I said in the last e-mail, I refuse to comply with this lawlessness — so, now what?

Attack!

I am not going to merely sit back and watch as these people destroy my State, my University, and my people. While I may no longer be enlisted, I still love New Mexico and the United States, and the oath of enlistment still rings true: I am going to defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of New Mexico against these evil tyrants.

These administrators are either actively evil, or are so cowardly as to be functionally evil; they want us to simply roll over, to simply quit, to collapse in fawning obeisance over their every pronouncement. — It is quite obvious that they intend to push people who do not comply to either quitting or to committing an act of violence, so that they can run crying and screaming to mommy gov., but I have a better idea: as mentioned in my e-mail, the New Mexico Constitution allows for the collection of signatures of registered voters (per county) to compel the convening of a Grand Jury — if you’re in New Mexico, the required number of signatures are as follows:

Threats, and Treason, From the President

And What Is Treason?

The Constitution defines ‘Treason’ as follows: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to  their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

Now, to understand fully, we turn to a dictionary of the same period: Webster’s 1828 Dictionary and assess the definition of ‘levy’ — it is as follows:

LEV’Y, verb transitive [Latin levo; Eng. to lift.]

  1. To raise; to collect. To levy troops, is to enlist or to order men into public service. To levy an army, is to collect troops and form an army by enrollment, conscription or other means.
  2. To raise; to collect by assessment; as, to levy taxes, toll tribute, or contributions.

To levy war, is to raise or begin war; to take arms for attack; to attack.

First, note that ordering men into public service is a definition, and the President has announced he is doing just that; also note that the example of “levying war” is used as an example and includes raising/beginning war, and taking up arms for an attack.

Likewise, the definition for ‘war’ is similarly illuminating:

WAR, noun [G., to perplex, embroil, disturb. The primary sense of the root is to strive, struggle, urge, drive, or to turn, to twist.]

  1. A contest between nations or states, carried on by force, either for defense, or for revenging insults and redressing wrongs, for the extension of commerce or acquisition of territory, or for obtaining and establishing the superiority and dominion of one over the other. These objects are accomplished by the slaughter or capture of troops, and the capture and destruction of ships, towns and property. Among rude nations, war is often waged and carried on for plunder. As war is the contest of nations or states, it always implies that such contest is authorized by the monarch or the sovereign power of the nation. When war is commenced by attacking a nation in peace, it si called an offensive war and such attack is aggressive. When war is undertaken to repel invasion or the attacks of an enemy, it is called defensive, and a defensive war is considered as justifiable. Very few of the wars that have desolated nations and deluged the earth with blood, have been justifiable. Happy would it be for mankind, if the prevalence of Christian principles might ultimately extinguish the spirit of war and if the ambition to be great, might yield to the ambition of being good.

and

WAR, verb intransitive
1. To make war; to invade or attack a nation or state with force of arms; to carry on hostilities; or to be in a state of contest by violence.

He teacheth my hands to war 2 Samuel 22:35.

Now consider that the threat to remove governors makes it plain and leaves no doubt that the motivation and object of such actions is “obtaining and establishing the superiority and dominion of one over the other” — that is, we have just heard a declaration that the federal government is utterly superior to the States and, implicitly, that the States are not [to be] sovereigns but rather subjects.

The Citizenry Threatened

President Biden also threatened the People directly, and on multiple levels. From things like travel to education, from employment to even children… the pervasiveness of the treats uttered in this speech is astounding.

Those Rejecting Unlawful Claims of Authority

Those who are rejecting these unlawful and tyrannical policies were threatened quite bluntly — “we’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin” — which is interesting on several levels:
First, is it not the ever changing list of things that you have to do to show subservience (like masks, or lockdowns), and rights you have to surrender (like attending church, or social gatherings) that should make people hesitant? (In reality, though, ‘defiant’ and ‘rebellious’ are better stances against this lawlessness.)
Second, is it not true that multiple times the reason given for vaccination is to “protect the vaccinated”? (A hidden admission that these vaccines are NOT effective.)
Third, the implicit ‘or else’ — as if those refusing are children, incapable of making their own decisions and dangerously close to getting discipline.

Those Attempting to Go About Their Business

Likewise, the declarations of the intent to use the Transport Safety Administration to molest the citizenry going about their business, to wit “the TSA will double the fines on travelers that refuse to mask” — a blatant declaration of the intent to violate the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of excessive fines… what’s more, the entirety of response to the pandemic by governments (federal and state, in tandem) is violative of the prohibitions on cruel and unusual punishments: quarantining the healthy, shutting down people’s businesses, prohibiting the normal living of life, and the gathering together to worship.

It seems much of what government has done has increased the pain and suffering, and only just now are Sate governors saying “no more” — and good for them! — but what needs to happen is those enforcing these unlawful policies need to be punished, and more than the “slap on the wrist” punishments many egregious crimes are getting these days. (The truly vindictive sentences seem specially reserved for people like Kyle Rittenhouse who dare to defend themselves against the covertly-sanctioned and -supported ‘riots’.)

Those Who Just Want to do Their Job

And let us not forget the threats to people who just want to do their job, being left alone. It’s too late though: you may not have an interest in politics, but those in politics have and interest in crushing you. — The declaration that all federal employees must get vaccinated (the ‘or tested’ is a lie: a fiction that operates like the mafia’s “or else”), as with everyone who does business with the federal government.

Final thoughts

So, in the end, it looks like aside from the threats, and the declaration of war against the States, is a big game of chicken — who is going to stop him? You? Your company? Your State? — this is an interesting proposition, and it is obvious that it is not Biden but those controlling him making these dares.

I, for one, will not comply with illegal orders — and make no mistake, forcing people to undergo medical treatment against their will is criminal — remember RAMP:

  • Return fire with aimed fire. Return force with force. You always have the right to repel hostile acts with necessary force.
  • Anticipate attack. Use force first if, but only if, you see clear indicators of hostile intent.
  • Measure the amount of force that you use, if time and circumstances permit. Use only the amount of force necessary to protect lives and accomplish the mission.
  • Protect with deadly force only human life, and property designated by your commander. Stop short of deadly force when protecting other property.
You always have the right to us necessary force, including deadly force, to protect yourself and others.(Link)

Texas, Abortion, Roe V. Wade, and the link to Vaccine Mandates

Finally it should be noted that Texas prohibiting abortion is an interesting development — while I condone, in the strongest possible terms, the Texas lawmakers that enacted it there is cause for caution:

  1. This is NOT pro-life winning the war, this is the first time pro-life gaining ground in the battle.
  2. Roe v. Wade’s USSC decision was such that found a Constitutional right to privacy of medical records, especially from the government.
  3. As current precedent stands, it is unconstitutional on its face for government to demand access to medical record data… including vaccination status.
  4. Therefore, watch challenges to Roe v. Wade, because they might just set up the legal-equivalent of a false-flag to overturn Roe v. Wade, and then surprise everyone with the “now ‘legal’” invasion of medical privacy legitimizing the government demands for vaccination status.

More Vaccine Shenanigans

They Are Lying

Yesterday the media was blasting out that the FDA has approved the so-called vaccine (namely Pfizer) — but there seems to be some confusion, as there are two documents, a “BLA Approval” (Archive) and this “extension of Emergency Use Authorization” (Archive) — the latter has in it the first paragraph of page 12 & its last paragraph which are, respectively, as follows:

• This product has not been approved or licensed by FDA, but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA, under an EUA to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) for use in individuals 12 years of age and older;

and

This EUA will be effective until the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of drugs and biological products during the COVID-19 pandemic is terminated under Section 564(b)(2) of the Act or the EUA is revoked under Section 564(g) of the Act.

So, it is obvious that there is no actual approval for the product; and how could there be? The first paragraph of the FDA’s mission statement is:

The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; and by ensuring the safety of our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.

How, one might ask, could the FDA approve a product which has not completed its clinical trials and still even pretend to care about safety or efficacy? — You see the Phase 3 trial end-dates are in 2022 and 2023; see below:

  1. Pfizer: Phase 3 trial estimated end date 2023 (Archive)
  2. Moderna: estimated end date 2022 (Archive)
  3. Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen: estimated end date 2023 (Archive)
  4. AstraZeneca: estimated end date 2023 (Archive)

And what about the tainting of the control-group, as reported by NPR (Archive), which destroy the long-term study’s validity: the whole point of a “control group” is to be able to measure any difference your experiment/trial made.

The only sense this makes is when you adopt a cynical or paranoid filter: this is the spoliation and destruction of evidence… they were hoping to have so many “vaccinated” with their gene therapy that there would be no significant group of unvaccinated to compare against. — Do not submit, stand strong and reject any mandates.

Oh, and remember to pray.

Ask Not Which Flag Is False, They All Are!

“You’re a terrorist if you don’t comply with our tyranny!”
“You’re a terrorist if you don’t comply with our tyranny!”

Today there was a bomb-threat, at the Library of Congress — allegedly with a pickup-truck containing a toolbox full of Tannerite, driven by a “veteran” and “Trump-supporter” discontent with the situation in Afghanistan… how lucky is it that they put out a Terror Advisory matching this and historic  “Right–Wing Terrorism” profiles recently? Almost as if it were on-cue.

Terror plots foiled by the FBI turn out to be planned, funded and weaponized by the FBI itself
Want to end Domestic Terrorism? Defund the FBI!

Of course it really helps when you’re funding, planning, and directing the whole operation. In fact, it really brings up the ‘effectiveness’ metric for your “anti-terrorism” operations when you’re the one planning, funding, and enacting the whole “terrorism” plot in the first place. — Remember that ridiculous “Kidnap Governor Whitmer” plot? As soon as I heard it I knew something was off, it was just too convenient, and the way it was spun was more like “…and that’s why citizen revolts (and militias) are wrong!” — Well, it turns out that many (most?) of the people involved in that whole thing were FBI agents or informants and the FBI is trying to deny the defense access to evidence for their entrapment case. (Don’t be surprised if you hear they destroyed evidence in the future.) — So, given all this, I would be unsurprised to learn that the FBI is insanely jealous of both Hollywood and the MSM and the ability to just produce a story.

1109 DifferencesGoing back to Afghanistan, remember how their army said they were betrayed, ordered to stand down by their leadership? And remember that clip of Afghani people riding the plane, and the outrage of people over the falling bodies? Well, turns out that the one they were riding may have been a prop, like the balloon-army we used in WWII, which means the whole “bodies falling” may have been a complete fabrication and more evidence that our own military leadership has betrayed us.

It’s starting to look like everything is fake and gay.

Election Abnormalities and The Design of a Secure Voting Machine

Election Abnormalities

The election of 2020 is the strangest I’ve ever seen: I stayed up fairly late, seeing Donald Trump in the lead and then woke up to a ‘miraculous’ turnaround setting Biden as the victor… and then reports came out about vote-switching, vans at 3 AM, networking anomalies, and more.

There were legal challenges, which I thought had the feel of being designed to lose — “taking a dive” — and that’s only on Trump’s legal team’s part. The entirety of the Judiciary seemed unconcerned with Justice, culminating when the Supreme Court declined to hear the case with Texas and 20 other States in their original jurisdiction. (This alone would be reason to support judicial reform, as I have thought for decades, but that’s a rant for another time.)

Then came January 6th, the certification of the electors and their votes. What we saw there was disappointing: not only was the judiciary unconcerned with a just election, but the Congress certified these questionable votes — the whole ‘riot’ seeming to be perfectly engineered to give an excuse for doing so, while simultaneously setting the stage for the oppression of patriotic Americans under the guise of fighting “white-nationalism” and “domestic-terrorism”… despite the clear difference between the events at D.C. and the so-called “peaceful-protests” of the last year which left many buildings ash, and destroyed small businesses.

So, this opens up an uncomfortable question: how many of our elections have been subverted? How many policies were snuck in, shoved down our throats by subterfuge? — A friend told me that up in Maryland the first vote with electronic-voting machines had homosexual marriage as one of the items, it passed, but nobody he talked to had voted for it. Even California, via it’s Proposition 8, decided to reject homosexual marriage. (Proposition 8 was thrown out by a single federal judge as ‘unconstitutional’ and the US Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal, letting the judge’s pronouncement stand.)

The Design of a Secure Voting Machine

  1. No ethernet-, USB-, FireWire, RS-232, parallel or other such ports;
    1. An exception for a single read-only mechanism for tabulation; preferably something standardized but uncommon, like GPIB;
  2. No radios: WiFi, Bluetooth, etc;
  3. Custom CPU, eliminating all unnecessary opcodes;
  4. No Operating System;
  5. Use of formally provable software: custom bare-metal vote-counting program;
  6. Use of formal proving on the CPU.
  7. At least two write-only records for the purpose of auditing.

Auditing

719098
A device that prints an audit-trail during its operation.

The inclusion of auditing information is essential for rebuilding trust in our elections, and thanks to the miracle of the technology of the 1970s, we can have two audit trails just like grocery stores across the nation: print one copy of the ‘receipt’ for the store internally, and another for the ‘customer’.

Formal Proof

While traditionally the usage of formal proof in large software projects has generally been seen as ‘cost-prohibitive’ by the management in charge of software development, there are some exceptions: NASA’s spacecraft, Aeronautics (Airframes & Air-Traffic Control), and Medical Devices. — Why not the software used in our elections?

The cornerstone of formal proof is the ability to (a) prove that given some precondition, some postcondition must follow; (b) ensure that certain properties are met, typically in service to (a), but sometimes; (3) ensuring the functional correctness of the underlying object, be it code or electronics-systems… twenty or twenty-five years ago doing this in a cost-effective way may have been impractical, but the Department of Defense commissioned the programming language Ada in part to be formally provable given static analyzers. That tooling has been upgraded and incorporated into a toolset operating on a restricted subset of Ada such that you are able to prove the functional-correctness of the code [generally] automatically. — The Department of Defense also commissioned a similar project for hardware, which later became VHDL.

It’s beyond ridiculous that these two technologies haven’t been used to ensure the provable correctness of both the software and hardware involved in handling our elections.

Restricted Hardware

The purpose of restricting hardware via elimination is obvious: it reduces both the opportunity to subvert the system, as well as reduces the amount of time & effort required to verify as correct. — After all, there can be no internet breach if there is no ethernet-port, network-stack, or even the circuitry  to operate it!

GPIB, as mentioned above, is a standard from the 1960/70s and is commonly found in automated test equipment; it should be simple enough to implement in hardware so as to provide read-only access to the votes tallied on the voting machine.

While I have other, more specific, thoughts on the matter, I think this should impress on you not only how feasible a provably correct voting system is, but how the current voting machines are, to put it bluntly, optimized for election fraud.

Welcome to the Trump Depression!

Job-market: Packed & Desperate.
7 Hours in, and more than two hundred applications!
Entry-Level job, requiring BS, BA, or advanced degree in computer science… ans 10 years experience.
Apparently entry into the field requires a decade of experience in the field.

Now, whether or not you’re a supporter of Trump, whether or not you think he could have done anything to prevent the pandemic outbreak here in the U.S., one thing is clear: we are in a real live Depression. The economists and politicians will deny this, for the obvious reason that because  of the historical and psychological connotations make them fear that the downturn will self-reinforce on a downward spiral, crashing everything if they use the D-word. — And history will remember it as the Trump Depression because, even if everything was beyond his control, he was President when it happened.

Entry-Level job requiring BS in Mechanical Engineering… and 7–14 years experience.
Entry into the industry only takes 7–14 years experience!

A true assessment would likely reveal that 20082010 was a Depression, too — and I would argue that we never really recovered from 2008; I remember the job market around then, and it was a slow ramp-up, but that’s when we started to see the “Entry Level” jobs requiring prior experience, that’s when I saw the Computer Science and IT fields really start to require more experience in a technology than that technology had existed… that’s when the corporations made it plain that they not only desired H1Bs but preferred them over the Citizen.

You know what, screw a role: we want an entire department!
Since one technical person is the same as another, one guy can do EVERYTHING!! (Right?)

I remember 2011/2012, where it was common to hear people (especially employers) talk about how lucky someone was to have a job — and the mayhem that the Affordable Care Act caused, providing incentive for employers to drop hours rather than keep people full time. I remember job-hunting in 2015/2016/2017 and how job-postings for even the Entry Level jobs had gained requirements for 3-, 5-, 7-, and sometimes even 10-years: something rotten was going on — I believe it’s systemic H1B fraud, such that the HR departments in companies are gathering resumes from applicants to send back home, where their countrymen plagiarize the résumé and then be pushed by advocates in HR — and you would have to be a fool to think the economy was either healthy or strong.

Data-analyst 6-month contract.
We want a data-analyst who’s already experienced in what we do, and able to be a team leader… but only for six-months!

And now we have 2020: the businesses lost number in the tens of thousands, and they AREN’T coming back, despite what overly optimistic politicians claim — and 44 million unemployed out of an employment-population of 150–175 million (it varies due to seasonal employment) yields us an unemployment rate of 25.1–29.3% — and this is before people have gotten desperate.

Full-time front-desk job requires Master’s degree.
Ah, yes, the ever elusive Master’s degree in “Receptioneering”.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what’s going to happen: employers are going to inflate requirements, drop wages, cut benefits… and wait until people get desperate. They’ll use the phrase “you’re lucky to have a job!” again, and push for things like unpaid overtime, working off-the-clock, taking advantage of your ‘luck’ and fear of being replaced with someone more desperate and therefore more pliable.

1960 with a high-school diploma: “Here’s your job, which is totally capible of supporting an 5 person family and owning a home.” 1960 with a college degree: “Here’s a giant bag of money and a cadre of people to jerk you off for the rest of your life, congratulations.” 2017 with two bachelor’s degrees, a master’s, a trade and experience: “You might have to work at Wal-Mart for a while, at least you don’t live in Somalia or something………here’s an article by a Baby Boomer about why your generation is lazy.”
It’s even worse when you realize this is by design.

Recently [14-Jul-2020] Ivanka Kushner, President Trump’s daughter, announced a White House campaign “Find Something New” aimed at the unemployed which has been observed to be rather tone-deaf, if you’re feeling charitable this is the sort of cluelessness found in the story of Marie Antoinette where upon hearing the peasants were starving without bread exclaimed “Let them eat cake!”, or if you’re not feeling charitable it’s mean-spirited taunting akin to seeing a homeless man starving on the street and while eating biggest sandwich possible while exclaiming “Be well fed!” and then throwing the sandwich on the ground and grinding it underfoot. (It’s about apprenticeships in the U.S., but that’s putting the cart before the horse given the requirements on jobs.)

Entry-level, but must have senior-level skills… and be a great communicator!
We want Senior level talent and experience, but are only willing to pay Entry level wages!

Those of us who have been unemployed in the last five years know one thing that Ivanka and Donald Trump likely have absolutely no clue about: how utterly demoralizing and dehumanizing the modern job-hunt has become. Not only do most applications disappear into nothingness, thanks to Applicant Tracking Systems (ATSes) wherein you have to fill in your résumé’s data again and again, but when you finally do get an interview it often ends with someone saying something like “we’ll get back to you, whether or not we go with you or some other candidate”… and that’s the last you ever hear from them, and this happens even for interviews where you do very well.

Angular experience 5 years (preferred) vs Angular (initial release 3 years ago).
We require more experience with this technology than the length of time it’s existed!

Now here’s where the generational divide comes in: Boomers will say ‘just walk in, demand to see the hiring manager, look him in the eye and give him a firm handshake!’ oblivious to the fact that a lot of places don’t allow access to the hiring manager and force you to go through the ATS — Generation–X will tell you “it’s a number’s game, just keep applying and move on.” — Millennials know ATSes and how utterly broken they are, acting as a firewall against candidates, the scams corporations pull to hire ever more H1Bs, the ridiculousness of being simultaneously underqualified and overqualified and will offer you “good luck” but have no delusions that the job-seeking is anything close to a fair game.

Another entry-level job, requiring a decade of experience…
Do these people not realize “Entry Level” means entry into the industry, not their stupid company?

The answer is clear: in order to secure jobs for the citizens who are out of work, the U.S. must immediately cancel all ‘guest worker’ visas, deport all illegal immigrants, and let the citizens take those jobs — otherwise, if the U.S. will not take care of its own People… what use is it?

And that is why it is imperative that we seek to make the virtue of Justice a goal in government: without Justice, we fall apart — and it is because of injustice that God destroys nations.


Job-hunting — No reply. 77% of applications ignored.
One of my contacts saved the results of his job-hunt; the results tell you one indisputable thing: You are NOT alone.

Job-postings — That’s not a full-stack developer; that’s an entire IT department
Do they just pick random technologies and buzzwords until the job posting has some particular word-count?

The “Find Something New” Ad. And CBS’s take.

Three Gorges Dam: A Modern Cautionary Tale.

Screenshot - 07052020There are reports that the Three Gorges Dam in China has failed: they have opened the ship-locks and are using that to disgorge water from the reservoir thereby relieving the pressure. This means that the dam cannot fulfill its function as a flood-control mechanism and the downstream cities are in danger of flooding.

River & Flood Profile

Even at the time of the dam’s construction there were concerns raised about the dam’s soundness, and there is some evidence (though not conclusive) that there was some fudging of the safety standards during that era.

 

07JUL20, China River Warning

Recently there were a few photos from Google-Earth or somewhere showing a deformed dam which was quickly stated to be artifacts of composing the scene together of several satellite-pictures. Whether or not there is deformation is almost immaterial if the ship-locks are opened, for that means that the cities downstream will certainly be flooded. — The loss of life will be enormous, no matter what the Chinese government does now, and the destruction will likely be staggering in its scope.

3 Gorges Dam Risk

Additionally, there are reports that China’s banking is under serious pressure: a Chinese company named Kingold, headquartered in Wuhan and specializing in gold processing and jewelry, took out a loan of about $2.8 Billion with pure gold as collateral… gold which turned out to really be copper with a thin coating of gold — and this is suspected true of 4% of China’s reserve gold, with some suspicions that it’s really much higher.
Those of you that watched the Chernobyl miniseries should spot a running theme here: lies cascading and interacting with reality snowballing into ever worse outcomes… without Truth, that’s where we are heading, it’s only a matter of time.

Mandate of Heaven

But we are not without hope here in the US, we can still turn to God through Jesus, and Do Justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.

2020 Presidential Run Announcement

Greetings everyone!
Today, on the first day of summer, I am announcing my candidacy for president. There are many things that I would like to do, but most all of them can be reduced to one overarching theme: bringing the virtue of Justice back to governance.

Stocks vs the Economy

The picture to the left is outdated, and the number of unemployed is closer to 40 million — and we have only begun to see the corporations attempting to take advantage of the desperation of the unemployed: you will soon see jobs that used to be $50k/yr offered at $30k/yr, the really nice $90k/yr jobs will be $52k/yr… even now, we’re seeing calls for “relaxing” (i.e. dropping) restrictions on foreign labor. (See: Temporary Changes to Requirements Affecting H-2A Nonimmigrants Due to the COVID-19 National EmergencyAll Employment Growth Since 2000 Went to Immigrants, & Cheap Labor Lobbyists: 40 Million in U.S. Out of Work Proof of ‘Worker Shortage’)

Job-huntingSo, like the Boomers that they are,  instead of making things more difficult for corporations using foreign labor and easier for employing citizens, they obviously push for foreign labor in their ridiculously myopic push for short-term gains. It’s almost like they’ve been bought by foreign interests, either directly or through the large corporations themselves… but that’s getting dangerously close to accusing them of Treason, isn’t it?

The meaning of racketeering activity is set out at 18 U.S.C. §1961. As currently amended it includes: • Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act); • Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and many other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18); • Embezzlement of union funds; • Bankruptcy fraud or securities fraud; • Drug trafficking; long-term and elaborate drug networks can also be prosecuted using the Continuing Criminal Enterprise Statute; • Criminal copyright infringement; • Money laundering and related offenses; • Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain); • Acts of terrorism.Then again, that would explain a lot of the government’s inaction regarding things like Google’s abuse of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, or the heavy usage of H1B by Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft… even when such actions should net them a nice RICO investigation.

I remember the government saying, for decades, that (a) the illegal alien population was 11 Million; and (b) that the yearly number of new illegal immigrants was about 1 Million — so, using the Dark Arts of Arithmetic we can see that 11 Million + 20 Million is 31 Million… so if we got rid of all the illegal aliens, we would clear up a huge portion of jobs for our unemployed citizens. — Now, I could be misremembering, as this 2018 study [PDF] puts the number at 22 Million, but either way that’s a lot of people that we could just deport and open up that many more jobs.

Economic oddity: Stocks versus Employment

Stocks vs the EconomyOver the past several weeks, we have seen the economic shutdown of much of the United States due to the Covid–19 virus and associated panics, from things like the ridiculous toilet-paper shortages to the initial 6 million initial unemployment claims that have risen to more than 20 million now.

All of that does raise concern, given that the 22 million is in excess of 12% of the working population of the US, and would lead one to think that massive stock drop-offs would follow… instead they have risen. Why?

The reason is simple: greed and corruption.

The initial round of firings mean that companies are no longer paying their pay and other payroll-related expenses, furthermore the government’s stimulus means that instead of making money off of some product or service they’re making money of merely existing. Moreover, as we see more and more of the results of the expedited CARES Act being revealed it becomes more and more apparent that instead of these monies going to actual small businesses, the funds are being directed by the banks to larger businesses that are heavily indebted to the banks themselves — in other words, the banks are bailing out the people who owe them money so that they can get that selfsame money instead of those companies having to go through bankruptcy.

What does this mean for you? I’m not an economist, nor am I particularly experienced in the wide world of business… but I can tell you that this seems to me like it will be, in reality, the reduction of a vast majority of people to a meager existence, depleting savings and undercutting wages while those who are connected reap the profits. I anticipate ever more manipulation of things like stock values as they become more and more divorced from reality. And, atop all of this, I anticipate more pushes for H1B (and similar) labor despite the existence of more than 12% of the labor-force being unemployed means that ‘STEM shortage’ claims are beyond ridiculous.
