America Can No Longer Straddle the Fence with North Korea

The following is based on internet information, in most cases, dated less than a year old.

North Korea – the Basics

N. Korea is a communist dictatorship, of authoritarian/totalitarian rule. It utilizes a Socialist economy where private enterprise is (mostly) forbidden.

The supreme leader is worshiped as a religious god; Christianity or any formal religion is taboo. In the words of a former N. Korean Propagandist, the leader is a deity (not unlike the Sun God was for the Egyptians). Get too close to him and you’ll burn; stray too far away and you’ll freeze.

In N. Korea, you are either an intellectual, a worker or a peasant. Citizens are programmed from early childhood to be loyal to the State. Most of the programming occurs in the capital, Pyongyang – N. Korea’s stage for showing the world the best of their best. Those who are permitted to live in the capital have a much more prosperous life than those who reside in the other (lesser) cities, towns and countryside.

Housing is allocated, based on your relative worth to the government. Power outages are said to be common while running tap water is not. It has been estimated that 75% of N. Koreans don’t have enough to eat. A third of the country suffers malnutrition, requiring a (grossly inadequate) public food distribution program. Agricultural requirements for equipment and fertilizer can’t be met. Those in the outlying areas have it the worst, some stating they have had to eat sand and wood. In Pyongyang, there are fully stocked grocery stores for display only. Any tourist granted entry into the country will likely have a guard and a guide, minimally. The tourist will stay, eat, go and see only what and where the State permits on a regimented schedule. The choreographed itinerary has been described as serving two purposes: to speak down of or degrade the actions of U.S. Imperialists, and to praise the achievements of the supreme leader/North Korea.

State radio is said to be piped into (at least some) homes and is ever-present in the public as it  blares from street corner speakers. Television is State-controlled as well, for the 5 hour duration its single channel broadcasts each day. Any other filming is (or can be) considered treason.

The State controls nearly all information that comes in, or out. Mobile telephones have recently become available but have been modified to permit in-State communications only (although this modification is said to be illegally reversible). Internet is available to scientists/persons of need as deemed by the government. Access to popular culture, either by foreign radio, television or cinema through illegally obtained radios, DVDs and thumb drives, is the greatest threat to central command for its promotion of the idealism of democracy, driving defection rates. This short-term solution, however, is far from foolproof when friends and neighbors act as agents of the State, either for rewards. Or out of fear that they knew but didn’t report it. One documentary, filming a conversation among Pyongyang elitists, showed a translated statement wherein the speaker believes that one out of every three persons would secretly report someone planning to act contrary to the government’s doctrines.

Military might, for the most part, is composed of obsolete vehicles and weaponry. Their army outnumbers South Korea >2:1, not counting their reservists that number in the several millions. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHGbG_I3v28)

Essentially, the primary differences between North Korea and South Korea is night and day, literally. When the Korean peninsula is viewed at night from space, North Korea is completely dark (except for a small area believed to be Pyongyang) compared to the bright speckles of varying light intensities throughout South Korea. The north lives in the stone age, comparatively, relative to the south. Residents to the north are kept primitive by controlling their perceptions, thoughts, actions and any interactions with outsiders. The reverence they display for their leader can only be explained as either fear-induced acting for the camera or the results of a lifetime of mind control (brainwashing).

Life in North Korea is little more than slavery, similar to how Black Americans were treated in the South. The State owns you and can do what they want, when they want. You can either be a mindless robot in a voluntary labor camp, what they call “life,” or you can have your brain kicked in at an involuntary labor or prison camp.

Power – How it is Obtained and Maintained

Each presiding supreme leader seems to select his successor. Since North Korea was founded by a member of the “Kim” family, each successor has coincidentally also been a “Kim” family member. There are elections and r-elections, but power at the top always seems to get the same person on the ballot (see next paragraph).

Other high-ranking officials are said to be elected by a people’s vote every 5 years. Voting is mandatory and serves as a census. If a resident over the age of 17 isn’t on the list as having voted, they risk serious consequences. There is only one name on the ballot. If the voter chooses to NOT vote for that candidate, they must cross out the name on the ballot and deposit their ballot in a special booth box. Abstaining to vote or voting against the candidate is grounds for treason, thus ensuring that the ballot candidate always wins.

Government control (power) is achieved by inflicting fear on the commoners. One tactic used for asserting control is the government’s practice of guilt by association. If anyone commits an act against the State, the entire family is just as guilty. Political prison camps and their population has grown as a result. Torture is commonly used within these camps. “Frontline” has stated that it is estimated that 1 in every 100 N. Koreans is a political prisoner, most of which are captured defectors. Technically, since N. Korea continues to remain at war with S. Korea, having signed an armistice but not a peace treaty, this border is heavily patrolled. Defection is usually attempted via China, a close ally of N. Korea. Any defector caught in China is sent back to N. Korea for punishment. One documentary states that a second capture for the same crime of attempt to flee (defect) results in execution.

For the not-so-common senior officials, power and control over them is achieved through the use of gift politics. This entails the awarding of gifts for loyalty, supposedly after-the-fact. Whether it occurs before or after the demonstration of loyalty, it’s intended to win over the hearts of senior officials. It’s a psychological ploy not unlike overwhelming someone with niceties, or “catching more flies with honey.” It’s a tactic Kim Jong-un learned from his father, who used it “to firmly establish power.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKYBu9xIfac) Others might say it sounds a lot like buying someone’s support. In America we refer to this as (subtle) bribery.

Where Does the Money Come From?

One of the foremost (defected) experts on the N. Korean Economy states that there are actually two economy models in use: “a People’s Economy and the Royal Court Economy, which serves as the financial foundation for the Kim Dynasty. The People’s Economy is a typical Socialist economic system. Citizens use plans, compiled by the Party and the Cabinet, to produce goods and services. They receive supplies in return.” Kim Jong-un’s father “started using public funds as his own property to strengthen his power. That’s how the Royal Court Economy began. This supreme leader siphoned off large amounts of money that he could use as he wished, without seeking the party’s approval. He used the money for gift politics and also military projects, such as developing missiles and nuclear weapons. The Royal Court Economy has expanded at the expense of the People’s Economy and is now believed to account for more than 60% of the nation’s entire economic activity.”

“The Royal Court Economy… it is a parasite that sticks a straw into the People’s Economy and sucks out the flesh. The money is stored in (the Workers’) Party Headquarters. It holds a huge amount of Japanese Yen, dollars and euros.” One method of earning foreign currency was through the sale of weapons to countries, including Iran and Syria, produced locally in N. Korean factories. More recently, N. Korea has traded gold, from its huge deposits, for cash. Both activities channeled the monies through a bank in Macau.

Approximately 3 years ago, it appears the Royal Court Economy had started to dry up (presumably due to overspending). Whereas Kim Jong-un has, since day one of succeeding his father, given out gifts far more lavish than his father to gain acceptance and maintain power, most recently, some beneficiaries were receiving gifts of gratitude (words) only. Efforts to keep the Royal Court Economy tills stocked have included the construction and sale of bronze artworks – statutes – some twenty-five or more, as contracted by African nations. N. Korea has also obtained contracts to send labor personnel outside of their country, such as to build apartments in Mongolia. Female laborers are not exempt and have been placed to work in such jobs as a sewing factory, also in Mongolia. “It’s estimated that there are now 100,000 N. Koreans working around the world.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKYBu9xIfac).

Money has also been obtained illegitimately, reputedly through counterfeiting U.S. currency, insurance scams with their State-owned Insurance Company – Korea National Insurance Corporation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LO8UhOoL7R8), and government-produced heroin, sold on the black market. “Corruption is institutionalized.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NF8astthMc)

Brief Analysis

It would appear that N. Korea is spending a good portion of the People’s money to fund the State nuclear program. In fact, the government has had to cut back, at least during one period of time, on their gifts to senior officials, due to a shortage of funds. Since gifts have routinely been used to buy loyalty, a change in this practice would most certainly jeopardize future allegiance and create instability. Therefore, the Royal Court Economy must seek out a means to reinstitute the practice if power for the current regime is to be maintained.

Weapons trading is a known fact, as is the sale of gold and other precious minerals. Both are being monitored and Macau, the banking capital for N. Korea’s illicit financial transactions, is under close scrutiny and has had at least one major account frozen. Likewise, insurance scams have been identified, limiting their future donations to N. Korea’s economy.

United Nations sanctions appear to have done little if anything towards creating a hardship on N. Korea’s Economy. The sanctions must go further, inclusive of the expelling of all N. Koreans from every country where they are utilized as a work force. Additionally, all countries with contracts for goods (like uranium?) or remote services from N. Korea must cease and desist immediately. World Courts must be given the authority to shield any country that has to breach a contract from any legal ramifications. All ports outside of N. Korea should be banned from accepting N.Korean shipments of any kind, by any means (via satellite tracking). Countries that do not enforce these sanctions should be sanctioned themselves for their interference in achieving world stability. In the words of Eldridge Cleaver, “There is no more neutrality in the world. You either have to be part of the solution, or you’re going to be part of the problem.”

N. Korean Allies

A country’s governmental structure typically defines who they befriend. In N. Korea’s case, being a non-democratic, communist state with a dictatorship, under authoritarian/totalitarian rule, they have been known to align themselves with other countries of similar structure and make-up. Most notably, the countries of China and Russia come to mind, both of which have formidable, “complicated” relationships with the United States.

Other dictatorships have included the names of Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Saddam Hussein. Other countries utilizing a dictatorship include Iran and Syria. This list would seem to bear out that any country operating under an archaic form of government that includes a dictatorship, should never have access to nuclear weapons.

Brief Analysis

It’s likely that any last-ditch funds, necessary to continue their uranium enrichment program and Inter-continental Ballistic Missile technology, will come as a debt from one of their allies. Banking audits, identically or similar to that used to discover the Macau connection, must become standard practice, at least in the short-term. Additionally, it’s not inconceivable that N. Korea may, in the future, sell or otherwise trade their ICBM technology and uranium/nuclear stores to a lesser-advanced country, also likely to be a non-democracy, communist dictatorship. This would provide the financial means to support further research and developments. Cyber monitoring to detect this dissemination is critical.

N. Korean Enemies

The short list falls to a definite three – Japan, South Korea and the United States. Both Japan and South Korea are allies to the U.S.

Brief Analysis

The U.S. bombed N. Korea nearly into oblivion during the Korean War. The U.S. siding with N. Korea’s rival, S. Korea, adds to the U.S.’s “guilt by association.” Despite N. Korea’s threats to annihilate the U.S. by nuclear means, their true “backyard” enemy is S. Korea, whom N. Korea can’t touch due to S. Korea’s alliance with big brother, the U.S.

Likewise, the U.S. is unable to exercise a heavy hand without jeopardizing Seoul, the capital and largest populated area of S. Korea, within earshot (about 35 miles) of the demilitarized zone between the two countries. China and Russia’s alliance with N. Korea’s may provide these allies with an open door to any conflict with the U.S. that is created with N. Korea.

Hence, the stand-off.

The Supreme Leader

Kim Jong-un assumed power with but a year of exposure and experience to his father’s party dominance, prior to his father’s death. Kim Jong-un spent his first two years under the guidance, some say mentorship, of his Uncle, Jang Song-thaek, a key policy advisor for the new leader lacking leadership skills. While Kim Jong-un’s father was in power, “uncle” had been in a political position that was second only to the supreme leader and had achieved de facto leadership of N. Korea when Kim Jong-un’s father took ill and later died. Jang Song-thaek was then promoted to a 4 star general.

Kim Jong-un’s gift politics has included the building of an amusement park(s), water park(s), golf courses and a ski resort, to the detriment of funding the People’s Economy. These perks aren’t affordable for the vast majority of N. Koreans, who earn a paltry $3-5 per MONTH. Kim Jong-un  also has millions of dollars in cars, a private yacht and a private jet.

When the coffer funds began to dwindle, Kim Jong-un ordered his Uncle to find new sources to restore the Royal Court Economy. This resulted, in part, with Jang Song-thaek influencing previously established sources, bringing to him not only money but power. It is believed that Kim Jong-un deemed his Uncle to be a threat, perhaps inclusive of losing access to the money Kim Jong-un was in desperate need of. Jang Song-thaek was held responsible for the economic problems of the nation, charged with violations against the State, found guilty and  was executed. At least one defected expert in N. Korea’s Economy believes that Jang Song-thaek “was trying to normalize economic conditions.” Whatever Jang Song-thaek’s rationale, his death is said to have somehow created a rift between N. Korea and China.

Brief Analysis

Based on his lack of military and political experience, Kim Jong-un was immature at the beginning of his reign. His current day threats seem to confirm that nothing has changed. He has shown the barbaric extent he is willing to go to protect his reign and his kingdom of assets.

The Solution

What Do We Know?

The United Nations has failed miserably to recognize and circumvent a problem that threatens a few countries directly but all countries indirectly. Their actions have, thus far, been few and futile, as has been their history of engagement in similar matters. A nuclear winter will have to occur before they realize the seriousness of the situation that could have been prevented. Therefore, it’s unreasonable to expect the world-wide expulsion of N. Koreans from all countries or the enforcement to terminate all contracts for goods or services and to blockade all ports against N. Korean shipments. Bank audits are ineffective against cash transactions and cyber monitoring may not be possible against a country that has, themselves, advanced their hacking capabilities.

Their Current Armament

N. Korea has, as early as September 2016, successfully tested a nuclear weapon with a yield of 25 kilotons. This is equivalent to 25,000 tons of TNT. This amount surpasses the yield delivered in the bomb dropped on Hiroshima (13-18 kilotons) and Nagasaki (20-22 kilotons). Most recently, it has been estimated that N. Korea has 15-20 nuclear bombs with a total yield of 50 kilotons.

Short range missiles, capable of reaching out to 124 miles, number to be roughly 600. Mid range missiles, able to hit targets about 620 miles away, number to be 200. Long range missiles, able to fly 1550 to 3100 miles, amount to 50. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j261NRIXoWI)

Intermediate ballistic missile testing (1800-3400 mile range) is ongoing, as is their Inter-continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM; range greater than 3400 miles) program. A recent ICBM launch, in late July 2017, achieved a height and distance which, when extrapolated out, presents a trajectory that is said to enable it to hit Chicago and possibly the east coast of the United States. However, there is currently no assurance that a nuclear or non-nuclear payload would survive reentry. (http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/analysts-doubt-north-koreas-icbm-entry-capability-48960714)

Brief Analysis

The U.S. has developed and installed their Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system in S. Korea and neighboring areas. This defensive weapon is designed to shoot down short, medium and intermediate range ballistic missiles in their terminal phase (as they descend to their target). Additionally, the U.S. has deployed guided missile destroyers into Korean waters to shoot down short and intermediate range ballistic missiles in their post boost phase (as they level out from their ascent) and prior to reentry (the mid-course, between ascent and descent). Neither system is 100% accurate (and if you take another look, neither appears to be designed for an ICBM). (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j261NRIXoWI)

N. Korea would be unable to ascertain the legitimacy of their (continually) refined missile technology if the U.S. purposefully terminated the missile flight prior to a successful splashdown. Once the missile exits N. Korean airspace, its flight should be aborted by whatever measures necessary. This would prevent N. Korea from creating a verifiable method for nuclear (chemical or biological) payload reentry. The fact that the U.S. has not excised these missiles from the skies lends serious doubt as to their defensive capability for this task.

Summation

Relative to other political leaders, Kim Jong-un is immature at best. Despite this, he dismissed half of the generals he started with. He is egotistical and displays arrogance rather than restraint for reflection. His actions are self-serving and self-gratifying, with a sense of  invincibility, as is evident by his ongoing threats to attack U.S. property and domains. These threats have included the use of nuclear weapons which he has successfully created. He need only learn to compact them and to refine a delivery vehicle for transport. Culturally, his threats could just be words “to save face” in front of those he commands and requires respect and allegiance from. However, he has reputedly killed, his policy advisor, a family member no less, as if he had pulled the trigger himself, all in the name of self-preservation.

These are not the decisions of a rational leader. They are self-indulgences for personal gain. A primitive mind, bent on reigning through terror, cannot be bargained with.

INTELLIGENCE – Kim Jong-un idolizes his grandfather, Kim Il-sung, considered to be the founding father and eternal supreme leader beloved by N. Korea. It is thought that Kim Jong-un tries to imitate him so that he might be accepted and glorified as his grandfather was. More study should go towards analyzing Kim Il-sung, including his leadership and whatever decisions he enacted (his legacy) that might be brought to Kim Jong-un’s attention by the U.S. if it will help to temper the current situation.

Berne, Switzerland is home to one of the largest N. Korean communities abroad. This could be a valuable intelligence source, at least from a historical perspective.

The film companies that have created the documentaries; the American tourists (Dennis Rodman, anyone?) who have visited or have family in N. Korea. All may have intelligence contributions now, or could be utilized through their connections to gain intelligence.

The list of N. Korean defectors is said to be enormous, 25,000 or more resettling in S. Korea. Again, these persons may serve as an intelligence source for more recent information on Kim Jong-un and the logistics of his life.

If defectors can be smuggled out of N. Korea, multiple intelligence agents, separately, should be able to be smuggled in.

Once Kim Jong-un, the person, is fully known and understood, a psychological profile must be created if we are to know his true behavior and capabilities.

NAVAL BLOCKADE – The U.S. should seek and obtain UN support for a naval blockade to eliminate all import and export activity for all N. Korean ports. Any cargo vessel attempting to enter a N. Korean port via international waters must be indefinitely detained or turned away before they can reach State or ally coastal waters. Any vessel attempting to leave N. Korean ports, into international waters should receive like treatment. Ideally, confiscation of goods should occur.

“They already possess the capability to transport Weapons of Mass Destruction anywhere in the world through their trading companies, their affiliates and a very sophisticated shipping network. North Korea is already a nuclear threat.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=madZhwKI2dA)

RIVAL FACTIONS – State competitors for power and/or control are known to exist against Kim Jong-un. This needs to be aided and exploited to weaken the current regime, with the intent to oust him if a known better alternative exists. At the very least, any fear that can be harnessed against the leader may alter his behavior, perhaps delaying progression on the tasks geared to enable a nuclear attack.

CONFLICT – If a conflict is warranted, the best possible attack would come from a so-called ally – China or Russia – wholly or in part, as a sign of solidarity against nuclear weapons. These countries house the political figures willing to negotiate for actions that could serve both them and the U.S. For example, what would the U.S. be willing to do for China or Russia to take care of this nonsensical bully? Remove THAAD from the region? Lift sanctions? Provide economic stimulus? Improve trade?

China and Russia, you’d be smart to try and get something out of this. N. Korea is your dog. If you can’t keep him on a leash and it goes off and bites us (U.S.), we’re going to punish the dog and you for not preventing it. So if a nuclear bomb lands at our doorstep, you best go outside and look over the skies for the one coming back to you. We ALL have a stake in this and we’re ALL going to share in it, one way or another! Besides, let’s get real. If China or Russia was being threatened with a near-future nuclear missile by, let’s say, India, you wouldn’t give it a second thought to go in and neutralize their program by whatever mean necessary.

Kim Jong-un IS the head of the snake. Remove the head and you remove the immediate threat, perhaps the entire threat. The most likely means of guaranteeing U.S. Homeland Security is to –

  • Internally, facilitate a change of regime, using the rebels already in place.
  • Internally or externally, facilitate a change of regime, inclusive of a highly defined and concentrated tactical “strike” on specific sites, equipment and personnel.
  • Externally, canvas the country with a bombing campaign, preceded with the use of non-nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse(EMP) weaponry, such as the CHAMP cruise missile and selectly equipped  drones in overlying zones near the DMZ, known radar and missile installations and over Pyongyang, prior to supplementation with smart bombs and guided missiles, such as cruise and tomohawk missiles, when a reduction in collateral damage is warranted.
    • All electricity-producing plants and/or electrical transmission grid outside of the EMP zones or where hardened electronics are believed to be in use.
    • The DMZ where artillery batteries have Seoul within range and areas within the southern half of the State suspected of containing artillery;
    • Any other known locations housing “first strike” weaponry with an emphasis on missile battery locations, including launch sites for prior missile tests;
    • All military installations housing their Air Force, with the goal of grounding them;
    • Any military installations known to house troops;
    • Suspected or known locations at or near the DMZ where troop tunnels may exist; and
    • Any munitions storage areas with an emphasis on biological and chemical weapons.
    • Use the existing naval blockade force, described above, as a water extension of the DMZ boundary on both sides of the peninsula, preventing their navy from penetrating S. Korean coastal waters; and
    • Place E-3 Sentries or similar aircraft in the skies to surveil for missiles or enemy aircraft blind to naval ship radar, with fighter jets in the air to intervene. An overlap grid has to be in place to identify any missile flight and multiple layers of anti-missile technology readily available for in-flight termination.
    • If an attack is commenced under cover of darkness, amass S. Korean troops in select, staged fronts near the DMZ (in case they are brought into the conflict, have N. Korea bring the ground war into S. Korea). Use infrared monitoring from the sky to identify temperature gradients from N. Korean movement (relative to their background heat signature) to give away troop and tunnel locations. Heat plumes from missile/other launchings would also persist long enough to create a homing beacon for a retaliatory strike. Otherwise, an ideal time for both a devastating physical AND psychological attack would be during one of N. Korea’s military parades where a large gathering of troops and equipment could be removed from the playing field. Unfortunately, if Kim Jong-un is to be considered America’s enemy, every citizen in Pyongyang (constituting the majority of their reserve army) must also be viewed with the same label for their idolization and allegiance to him.
    • Lastly, don’t forget about their satellite that has an orbital path across the U.S. This may well be a weapon waiting to be used.

Politically speaking, it’s extremely important that all offensive and defensive weapons come from OUTSIDE South Korea. If the U.S. is to attack, it must come exclusively from them and not include an ally, to avoid a defensive retaliation against the allies and to keep them out of the blame game. If S. Korea is brought into the conflict, it will be in RESPONSE to having been attacked. Once S. Korea has been dragged into the fight, all gloves come off. There’s no humanity in war and I’d be playing by their rules, primitive as they may be. At least this is the way I’d respond to a person who rots the spirit of the (once) innocent.

Ultimately, the U.S. must be willing to overlook the possible fallout of a conflict with North Korea even if those actions have repercussions on South Korea or Japan. If a war (or other menacing conflict) between N. Korea and the U.S. is inevitable, a war fought with conventional weapons is far more preferred than one with nuclear weapons. Once the Payload has been compacted and the delivery vehicle has been perfected, by some estimates to be within a year, the threat from a self-absorbed dictator – or other political figure from a country he sells his technology to – can become a reality that affects anyone at any time, regardless of provocation.

The precedent set now must deter any other country from following in the footsteps of N. Korea if planet Earth is to survive.

A Hostile Divorce is Inevitable

Every relationship has its differences; opinions can vary widely. Seemingly, no opposing opinion is more poignant than when it comes to money – as in, what to do with it or how to spend it. The American public is no different.

We are a nation of poor relations, ESPECIALLY when it comes to money. We live in a society, not upon a deserted island. We socialize with neighbors, fellow students or working peers. We create relationships, all the while unknowingly immersing our lives with those we would call enemy if we knew their political viewpoints. So strong the concept of political money management, we have become a divided nation.

This is a story of three factions: the “haves”, the “have-nots” and those who believe the “haves” should share equally with the have-nots. Not too surprising, this latter concept can be taken from the pages defining an idealistic One World Government, that all IN THE WORLD should have the same regardless of their capacity (or desire?) to obtain it.

In a One World Government, there are no rich or poor, in theory. There is no working class. There are only equals, regardless of whether they work or produce. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough resources available so that ALL may be equal. The answer? A One World Government supports that some, perhaps many, must DIE to bring the number of “equals” to a sustainable level. Who gets to choose? Those that would decide deploy the weapon of human destruction?

Fate, and the weapon utilized to annihilate a quarter to a third of the world population, determines who will survive.

  • Some weapons, such as nuclear (wide scale airborne), has the greatest chance to affect all persons fairly evenly, except for the rich who have already purchased underground residences, or the politicians afforded access to those bunkers in existence so that this country of “equals” can continue.
  • An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) or a tampering with the electrical grid will hurt the industrialized nations most.
  • A chemical or biological weapon (local scale airborne, waterborne or foodborne) is most likely to snuff out the least developed countries who lack the expertise to confront it.
  • An economical collapse will locally kill off those with less retained money and those who aren’t prepared with appropriate amounts of stored food until the depression lifts.
  • Lastly, a monetary collapse (of the U.S. dollar, as some allege) will have the same outcome as a well dispersed nuclear strike in the U.S. except that those in (or with) power will continue to have access to their daily needs, by privilege or force.

 

Obviously, this wasn’t intended to be an all-inclusive list, nor is it the major theme of this post. It’s an example that there are no equals, regardless of promises or plans.

There will always be various socio-economic classes that will be permitted to have more  than others. For the most part, this is based primarily on drive and determination and less by corruption.

There will always, ALWAYS be those who feel they are entitled to what others have such that they will steal or use force to take what they want. These are your obvious psychopaths, sociopaths and those with an antisocial personality disorder. Try as you may to help these persons, they are a waste product to society.

There will always, ALWAYS be those who have the relative means or capacity to join the lowest of the working class, however little that position may pay, who CHOOSE to be a deadbeat so that others pity them with government social programs. They are quite content with what little they receive free rather than to have to work for it. They rationalize themselves to be fatalists, unable to change who or what they are.

There will always, ALWAYS be those who make the wrong decisions and believe that their compromised state deserves amnesty by the government, also known as, their fellow taxpayers. Whether they finance a higher education that ultimately gets them nowhere, or a house that loses value, far exceeding what they owe. These are the “poor me” who are unable to take responsibility for their actions and are driven to seek financial absolution by the same government who, time after time, takes care of the fatalists. As you can see, this class of persons are only slightly better than those beneath them.

There will always, ALWAYS be those who are quite able to do for themselves but feel that they should share. More so, they demand that everyone else adopt their “principle of humanity” by finding ways (politically) to force everyone else to share as well. Their (highly) questionable charity for the lesser in society comes about by unethical and/or immoral means. Whatever good they think they are accomplishing is wiped clean from their slate of godliness by the way they achieve it. They want to believe they are the present day, noble and giving “Robin Hood” except that they take from everyone rather than the rich exclusively.

And then there will always, ALWAYS be those who believe in doing right for themselves and expecting each and every person to equally be accountable for themselves. They are motivated to excel, to the best of their ability or situation, as each person should. They ask for nothing but, likewise, ask that others be equally responsible in the support of themselves, children and family. They recognize that everyone has a choice and should be held to the consequences of those choices. They believe EVERYONE who pays taxes is equally entitled to any taxpayer amenities.

The recent presidential election has created a huge rift in what was once a cohesive society…and I think it should have come sooner! I make no “pretends” by saying that everyone should live in harmony. They shouldn’t! I’m more than tired of the mantra that Americans should take care of their poor or the disadvantaged. Far, FAR too many choose that label. EQUALLY, I’m tired of paying their way through life. I work for me, my family, and the society I live in so that it can function with a modern framework and accessories.

If the “bleeding hearts” want to stand out in our society and believe they are morally better, by all means stand your ground and put some money where your mouth is BUT don’t force me to stand next to you. If you believe so heart-heartedly that the poor and disadvantaged should be taken care of, pool YOUR money and make that difference YOU believe in. Show everyone YOUR decency and how wrong the rest of society is. I’m willing to bet my life you won’t, because you can’t. Your “decency” is superficial at best. You are ALL TALK (but willing to throw a few peanuts into your gallery of have-not dependents in exchange for votes) and NO ACTION. Your “concern for humanity” is NOTHING more than an illusion to ensure you retain power and rule. The Clinton’s know this all too well and you are no better than this bottom sludge that serves as your foundation for principle.

Republicans are tired of being bullied; tired of being ambushed. Mostly, they’re tired of your kind of government always taking from us what WE earn and feel entitled to retain. We are ready to fight back and defend OUR values. No, we don’t pretend to be phony, righteous, pseudo-charitable humanitarians like yourself. We believe everyone has the ability to be self-sustaining except for the louses that want nothing more than to live off of us. Yes, there are some truly poor and disadvantaged that deserve aid but your definition is way too “liberal” and you care not to hold them accountable to change themselves for the betterment of our nation. A TRUE human being will make something of themselves, not sit back and wait for the crippling welfare the democrats use to control them with. YOU are responsible for making people the parasites they become, feeding them an easy existence in exchange for their devotion to a party of enablers.

If it’s a civil war you want…

Surely that will drop your numbers if a One World Government is inevitable.

Transgender? Fact, Fad or Fiction

On January 20, 2017, Barack Obama officially departed his 8-year tenure as the most powerful man in political office within the United States. His journey had taken him to unimaginable highs and lows, effecting policies and law for the betterment of (wo)mankind. In those 8 years of grandeur Obama was granted the Nobel Peace prize, (too) early on, for making “extraordinary efforts (read, attempts without actual accomplishments) to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

A lone, unknown news reporter approached Obama that fateful last morning and asked him, “What are you going to do now?” Obama replied matter-of-factly, “I’m going to take Michelle to the bathroom of her choice at Disneyland!”

Okay, this never happened but it could have.  One population of apparent g-r-a-v-e concern to Obama, and one he felt the world needed to recognize and patronize, has been the “transgenders.” Transgender is a label applied to “a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex.” In other words, they are the physical “he’s,” who think they are or want to be, “she’s” and vice versa. Definitions aside, what humanitarian action did Obama single-handedly perform for these lost souls? He allowed them to use the bathroom of their choosing, regardless of what sex they were born into or what genitalia they were physically equipped with.

This supreme idiot (denoted only because of the public majority who voted for him) was so emphatically motivated, he legislated that public bathrooms, for children within schools around his great nation, be relabeled and permitted for transgender use. Those previously assigned, single sex restrooms, originally created for the most private of bodily functions involving genital nudity, would now have to submit to an open-door policy for any sex individuals IF those persons personally identified as being more comfortable in that atmosphere. Imagine that boys and girls, the physical female having to share near-immediate space with a boy who thinks he’s happier if he were a girl, forcing a normal person to potentially give up their privacy and decency while in the company of the “less than normal”? Wouldn’t it have just been easier to put a porta potty in the hall and label it for the mentally ill? Make no mistake, they or someone very close to them have decided to take a path less traveled and in doing so, have cast doubts upon who or what they are. As you will read further, they are in fact described by the American Psychiatric Association (APA).

In a world marred by various and simultaneous warring conflicts, preceded or potentiated by international terrorism, rendering societies useless and people destitute, how is it that the (then) King of America could only think to help these exceedingly few “disadvantaged”? Some might suggest to you that he did it out of love for his wife, Michael, I mean Michelle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2EKzoh6AAo). A man’s love for his “he” who identifies best as a “she,” has no bounds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFbZxOR6wd4).

But I digress. This isn’t about Michael/Michelle, whomever or whatever he/she/it may be. This is about handing out recognition cards and favoring the imbalanced. You may not like the way that sounds but there is no question that these people need (a lot) more help than society can give them through the free rein to use the bathroom, locker room and shower of their freely chosen gender identity rather than their biological sex.

“Gender identity is what the person says it is and a school must treat students consistent with their gender identity [i.e. their internal sense of themselves] even if their education records or identification documents indicate a different sex. Most people assume that being ‘transgender’ is a diagnosable or legal category that one meets by making certain observable changes or being declared such by a medical or psychological professional. This is not the case. One is to be accepted as transgender simply by declaring it so. The transgender person need not show any external confirmation of his claim. If a transgender person wishes to make no outward physical change at all, that is his or her decision that everyone must honor. Any male, with ill intent (or not), can enter a woman’s restroom, shower, or changing room and present his naked self under the false auspices of changing his clothes, dropping his pants to tuck in his shirt, shower after a workout, etc. There are many things boys and men will be able to do in the girls’ facilities that cannot be questioned but will be deeply disturbing to the average woman. Many of the world’s leading clinicians working with such children do not refer to them as ‘transgender’ but as gender dysphoric. This is because the best research reveals that 75 to 98 percent of children who at some point identify as the opposite sex return to their biological sex identity at or sometime before the onset of puberty. It is not something they are, but something the overwhelming majority deal with for a period of time in childhood. Leading clinicians working in the Netherlands report the results unequivocally showed that gender dysphoria remitted after puberty in the vast majority of children. Thus, referring to gender dysphoric children as ‘transgender’ is not advised by the best research. This is primarily why the Amsterdam Gender Identity Clinic, one of the largest clinics in Europe treating gender dysphoric children, does not recommend that parents, teachers, or clinicians facilitate pre-adolescent sex transitioning:

‘Because most gender dysphoric children will not remain gender dysphoric through adolescence, we recommend that young children not yet make a complete social transition (different clothing, a different given name, referring to a boy as ‘her’ instead of ‘him’) before the very early stages of puberty. In making this recommendation, we aim to prevent youths with non-persisting gender dysphoria from having to make a complex change back to the role of the natal gender.’

One of the world’s leading pro-gay think tanks puts the total population of transgender adults no higher than 0.3 percent; the percentage of young people is much lower.” For these few, everyone else must jump through hoops? (http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/01/5-reasons-president-obamas-new-transgender-school-policy-is-foolish/)

The ramifications of the abuses this begs to offer are astounding. This “guidance,” viewed as a violation of the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, was enacted by a Constitutional Law Professor no less. We may have been a superpower at one time but we have quickly become a nation of superfreaks (AND yet to be discovered, sexual deviants), whom the normal have been forced to cater to.

Have you ever heard about the Human Rights Campaign’s Parents for Transgender Equality Council (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/parents-of-transgender-children-request-meeting-with-trump-devos-sessions/ar-AAnoJyW?li=BBnbcA1)? Apparently, there’s a “council” for everything these days, this one because “The Obama-era guidance specified not only that transgender children should be allowed to use bathrooms matching their gender identity, but also how schools should navigate questions about which names and pronouns to use and which athletic team a child should be permitted to join.” Fortunately, several states sued and an injunction was issued that currently prevents the federal government from enforcing this ludicracy. That hasn’t stopped some states (who, no doubt, favor Obama) from taking the reins and acting towards Obama’s desired endpoint.

That article alludes to one written by the Washington (yes, THAT Washington) Post, titled “Parents of transgender child: Our magnetic 5-year old is not a threat to anyone” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/education/wp/2016/06/03/parents-of-transgender-child-our-magnetic-5-year-old-is-not-a-threat-to-anyone/?utm_term=.e08bf8d436d4). “Ellie” was born male but at FOUR (4) years of age, “she let us (HIS parents) know who she truly was.” Presuming you missed that, a FOUR year-old is telling his/her parents that “he” should have really been a “she” and they are going with it!

His/her parents would have you believe that the transgender issue isn’t so much about bathrooms but equality and the lack of discrimination. DISCRIMINATION, as to the “use of facilities based on race, nationality, creed, color, age, sex or sexual orientation” in strictest terms, doesn’t apply.

  1. Their sex is listed on a birth certificate and are being treated according to that state document, not some whim or notion of theirs that pops up for reasons unknown.
  2. Sexual orientation is sexual preference, as in what sex they are attracted to for sexual activity, not which sex they prefer to be.

Oh, and although the parents are an interracial couple with the father being black, I’m sure this had nothing to do with his discussions WITH Obama prior to Obama’s enactment of transgender bathrooms, despite the ill effects his presidency created with regard to racism.

 

Not far behind Ellie is Avery Jackson, a born male. At FIVE (5) years of age he decided “he” was really a “she”, as reported in, you guessed it, the Washington Post, titled “Applause and anger greet 9-year-old transgender girl on January cover of National Geographic”(https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/12/19/applause-and-anger-greet-9-year-old-transgender-girl-on-january-cover-of-national-geographic/?utm_term=.f823f3153e81). The article adds that, medically speaking, a psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center states, “in children, gender solidifies at about 3 to 6.” This statement would seem to contradict the American Psychiatric Association (APA) website that states, “medical transition is only relevant at and after the onset of puberty.” I guess that time range for gender solidification isn’t as valid as it was portrayed if the APA doesn’t recommend the disturbed person to medically act (by hormone therapy or sex-change surgery) on their possible indecisiveness for years AFTER that gender identity has solidified.

 

How about that 17 year-old, Mack Beggs? He’s that “born girl, turned boy” with the help of testosterone treatments, who was profiled with notoriety for winning a wrestling championship. Did her/his testosterone treatments give her/him an unfair advantage over the other GIRLS he wrestled? Had (s)he not been a transgender, would it even have been newsworthy?(https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/more-sports/transgender-wrestler-wins-state-championship/ar-AAnp4HH?li=BBnbfcL) You can’t tell me that she, her parents, or influencing friends and contacts aren’t more than just a little f##cked up! A 17 year-old, not having reached the age of legal maturity much less completing puberty, who probably can’t tell you what (s)he wants to do when (s)he grows up, is able to tell you what (s)he wants to be when (s)he grows up? Come on!

Children are far from being considered any kind of an authoritarian, on ANY subject. That comes with real world experience, coupled with knowledge in most cases. Where is their experience or knowledge coming from at pre-puberty stages in life? Children are born with a blank slate. It’s only what they perceive that changes that slate. Who controls that slate? Their parents initially, who will then relent some responsibilities to the other siblings present, only to be joined by acquaintances turned friends outside the family. In all cases, the overseer is the parents so yes, there is a responsible party for the mayhem and it starts with overly indulgent parents (http://thefederalist.com/2017/02/28/blame-parents-share-sudden-emergence-trans-kids/).

Before we start to unconditionally accept a child’s wish to be different than who they are, perhaps someone should rule out the childish reasons for that wish. Who were their role model? Did THEY act the part? Was their a sibling, same sex or otherwise that was treated better in the eyes of the child? Are they accepted by their friends for who they are? Are they bullied? What are they running away from, or towards?

Then there are the Caitlyn Jenners of the world.

God forbid what comes out of the closet next!

Cal-Exit? There is a God!

Many, perhaps even most, of the inhabitants of California awakened to a wet dream the day following the U.S. Presidential Election – Donald Trump, a REPUBLICAN, had been elected. So enthralled were they by the 4 year plight to come, half or more of these residents probably wet their pants (and panties; for those of the female and LGBTQ persuasion). Panic set in. Chaos ensued. “Who will take care of us?”

It’s no secret that California is a putrid blue state, by and large. Their borders house so many (illegal and legal) morally decaying residents, they have been gifted with 55 electoral votes. Sorry to say, they seem exceedingly unwilling to accept the fact that their Republic (according to their state flag) has fallen under Republican rule at the national level. Rather than to change their symbolic flag, they’ve chosen to excise the Cancer they have become from the remaining (relatively) healthy organism – the other contiguous states in the Union. Bravo!

President Trump, you DO NOT hold the honor for sparking the Cal-exit revolution. That apparently goes to Obama, being that this movement was initiated under Obama’s presidential reign, with the polls asserting that H. Clinton would succeed. One misinterpreted succession has given rise to a secession I can only hope will succeed.

For Cal-exit to occur there is the “Yes California” movement, chiefly spearheaded by two male life partners who “don’t want to live under the same dysfunctional household anymore.” Are you talking about your household within California as part of the U.S. or just your marital situation in general?

Their movement has a post office box headquartered out of disease-infested Fresno (because drug addiction IS a Disease; just as all criminal behavior will be labeled in the very near democratic future). They have to obtain over half a million signatures to bring the topic to the March 2019 Special Election ballot. Once secession does occur, the liberal democrats (is there really any other kind?) can retain $452.8B in annual federal income taxes to pay for their woes, like the Oroville Dam they have already asked federal aid for. How ironic is it to have hotshot California wanting self-determination, to be self-sufficient in their utopianism, and still come crying to daddy for money? Seems like a pretty weak display of a “can do” nation that says they want to be left alone!

I propose that you Californians utilize your greater-than-thou superior principles to:

  1. become a Sanctuary State of refugees and illegal aliens, from Syria to Mexico to the Middle East. Bring in those 280M new people “knocking at the door and asking for visas” to live in your nation AND support them (so we don’t have to, cuz you’re so much better than the rest of us);
  2. pay your new immigrants, including farm laborers, a starting wage of $20/hour with a complete compensatory package, such as full medical (and whatever you do, don’t forget the mental health), and put the rest of your ex-Union states to shame;
  3. take over all social programs for your citizens, including subsidized housing, food stamps, energy/utilities, medical, education and child-care; the unemployed; the disabled; rehabilitation for your druggies; imprisonment (or will it be hospitalization) for your criminals;
  4. build that wall, to safeguard your citizens from the political infidels that live outside your borders and “to defend ourselves from the rest of this country”;
  5. continue to pay in full your pensioners, numbering greater than any other state;
  6. discreetly withdraw from all infrastructure funds you are receiving, such as for high-speed rail;
  7. buy out the federal government for all transportation and energy assets, as well as federal lands (including military bases) you’ll be taking control over;
  8. weather out your droughts, floods and mud/landslides; fight your Santa Ana-fueled wildfires; and rebuild your earthquake debris fields without bellyaching;
  9. aspirate your wine while we get ours from Oregon and Washington; and
  10. choke on your fruits and vegetables while we get ours from other greenhouses, fertile fields, Florida and Mexico.

When you fail miserably, through a lack of signatures, votes or through incompetent government rule, don’t come whimpering back with your tail between your legs. Be the dog that you are and lie in the bed you’ve created.

“France, Please take Obama. I’ll Pay You!”

According to MSN news (internet site), “Petition calls on Obama to run for President in France.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/petition-calls-on-obama-to-run-for-president-in-france/ar-AAnhSHk?li=BBnbfcL

I think the first paragraph in this article sums it up quite well. “Amid a presidential campaign that has been marred by scandal, conspiracy theories and the spectre of a new far-right leader, disillusioned French voters have called for an outsider to join the race: Barack Obama.”

No, Obama hasn’t had any MAJOR scandals, according to his friends and the media. In his own words he has had (cough, cough) a scandal-less presidency.

Disillusioned French voters: Obama’s tenure in the presidential office certainly created a lot of disillusion; more than any president in MY adult lifetime. I can see why voters already disillusioned would tend to drift towards him.

But alas there is the “so-called” disqualifying statement: “French law requires presidential candidates to be French, which Obama is not.” Don’t start tearing up just yet. American law has the same criteria for a U.S. presidential candidate to have been born in the U.S. and Obama was able to steer around that.

Oh, and by the way U.S., congratulations on achieving a new low point for corruption by faking Obama’s credentials. This greatest governmental fraud was perpetrated on the American public whose ignorance and lack of scruples supported the unscrupulous one.

 

According to https://www.indy100.com/article/the-most-corrupt-countries-in-the-world-ranked-in-order–xJUZ5u9j_x (site displays “URL Not Found” but if you scroll down a little you’ll actually see supporting text), although the U.S. manages to avoid recognition as one of the top 10 most corrupt countries, they ALSO avoid being praised in the top 10 least corrupt countries.

http://www.worldaudit.org/corruption.htm ranks the U.S. at 15 (least corrupt countries) in 2015.

https://www.transparency.org/news/feature/corruption_perceptions_index_2016 ranks the U.S. at 18 in 2016. http://fortune.com/2017/01/25/these-are-the-most-corrupt-countries-in-the-world/, which references their statistics from transparency.org, states that the U.S. dropped 2 points from the 2015 ranking.

 

Oh, and Antoine, the Frenchman in the article who was inspired by Obama’s “enthusiasm,” you only know what you read in the newspapers/online news services or saw in news reports comprised mostly by mainstream media outlets who slant their “Kool-Aid” to favor their chosen one.

By the way, France, you’re the 23rd least corrupt country, behind Estonia and Uruguay (who are more reputable). That explains a lot.

France, allow me to introduce to you, your next president, BARACK OBAMA SOETORO, America’s leading fraud (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-HqHSkYG-Y).
