The Myth of Global Markets Explains Why The DC UniParty View POTUS Trump As a Risk To Their World Order…

If the U.S. were to exit NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), the price you pay for most foodstuff at the grocery store would drop 10% in the first quarter and likely drop 20% or more by the end of the first year. Here’s why:

Approximately a decade ago the U.S. Dept of Agriculture stopped using U.S. consumer food prices within the reported measures of inflation. The food sector joined the ranks of fuel and energy prices in no longer being measured to track core inflation and backdrop Fed monetary policy. Not coincidentally this was simultaneous to U.S. consumers seeing massive inflation in the same highly consumable sector.

There are massive international corporate and financial interests who are inherently at risk from President Trump’s “America-First” economic and trade platform. Believe it or not, President Trump is up against an entire world economic establishment.

When you understand how trade works in the modern era you will understand why the agents within the system are so adamantly opposed to U.S. President Trump.

The biggest lie in modern economics, willingly spread and maintained by corporate media, is that a system of global markets still exists.

It doesn’t.

Every element of global economic trade is controlled and exploited by massive institutions, multinational banks and multinational corporations. Institutions like the World Trade Organization (WTO) and World Bank control trillions of dollars in economic activity. Underneath that economic activity there are people who hold the reigns of power over the outcomes. These individuals and groups are the stakeholders in direct opposition to principles of America-First national economics.

The modern financial constructs of these entities have been established over the course of the past three decades. When you understand how they manipulate the economic system of individual nations you begin to understand understand why they are so fundamentally opposed to President Trump.

In the Western World, separate from communist control perspectives (ie. China), “Global markets” are a modern myth; nothing more than a talking point meant to keep people satiated with sound bites they might find familiar. Global markets have been destroyed over the past three decades by multinational corporations who control the products formerly contained within global markets.

The same is true for “Commodities Markets”. The multinational trade and economic system, run by corporations and multinational banks, now controls the product outputs of independent nations. The free market economic system has been usurped by entities who create what is best described as ‘controlled markets’.

U.S. President Trump smartly understands what has taken place. Additionally he uses economic leverage as part of a broader national security policy; and to understand who opposes President Trump specifically because of the economic leverage he creates, it becomes important to understand the objectives of the global and financial elite who run and operate the institutions. The Big Club.

Understanding how trillions of trade dollars influence geopolitical policy we begin to understand the three-decade global financial construct they seek to protect.

That is, global financial exploitation of national markets.


♦Multinational corporations purchase controlling interests in various national outputs and industries of developed industrial western nations.

♦The Multinational Corporations making the purchases are underwritten by massive global financial institutions, multinational banks.

♦The Multinational Banks and the Multinational Corporations then utilize lobbying interests to manipulate the internal political policy of the targeted nation state(s).

♦With control over the targeted national industry or interest, the multinationals then leverage export of the national asset (exfiltration) through trade agreements structured to the benefit of lesser developed nation states – where they have previously established a proactive financial footprint.

Against the backdrop of President Trump confronting China; and against the backdrop of NAFTA being renegotiated, likely to exit; and against the necessary need to support the key U.S. steel industry; revisiting the economic influences within the modern import/export dynamic will help conceptualize the issues at the heart of the matter.

There are a myriad of interests within each trade sector that make specific explanation very challenging; however, here’s the basic outline.

For three decades economic “globalism” has advanced, quickly. Everyone accepts this statement, yet few actually stop to ask who and what are behind this – and why?

Influential people with vested financial interests in the process have sold a narrative that global manufacturing, global sourcing, and global production was the inherent way of the future. The same voices claimed the American economy was consigned to become a “service-driven economy.”

What was always missed in these discussions is that advocates selling this global-economy message have a vested financial and ideological interest in convincing the information consumer it is all just a natural outcome of economic progress.

It’s not.

It’s not natural at all. It is a process that is entirely controlled, promoted and utilized by large conglomerates, lobbyists, purchased politicians and massive financial corporations.

Again, I’ll try to retain the larger altitude perspective without falling into the traps of the esoteric weeds. I freely admit this is tough to explain and I may not be successful.

Bulletpoint #1: ♦ Multinational corporations purchase controlling interests in various national elements of developed industrial western nations.

This is perhaps the most challenging to understand. In essence, thanks specifically to the way the World Trade Organization (WTO) was established in 1995, national companies expanded their influence into multiple nations, across a myriad of industries and economic sectors (energy, agriculture, raw earth minerals, etc.). This is the basic underpinning of national companies becoming multinational corporations.

Think of these multinational corporations as global entities now powerful enough to reach into multiple nations -simultaneously- and purchase controlling interests in a single economic commodity.

A historic reference point might be the original multinational enterprise, energy via oil production. (Exxon, Mobil, BP, etc.)

However, in the modern global world, it’s not just oil; the resource and product procurement extends to virtually every possible commodity and industry. From the very visible (wheat/corn) to the obscure (small minerals, and even flowers).

Bulletpoint #2 ♦ The Multinational Corporations making the purchases are underwritten by massive global financial institutions, multinational banks.

During the past several decades national companies merged. The largest lemon producer company in Brazil, merges with the largest lemon company in Mexico, merges with the largest lemon company in Argentina, merges with the largest lemon company in the U.S., etc. etc. National companies, formerly of one nation, become “continental” companies with control over an entire continent of nations.

…. or it could be over several continents or even the entire world market of Lemon/Widget production. These are now multinational corporations. They hold interests in specific segments (this example lemons) across a broad variety of individual nations.

National laws on Monopoly building are not the same in all nations. Most are not as structured as the U.S.A or other more developed nations (with more laws). During the acquisition phase, when encountering a highly developed nation with monopoly laws, the process of an umbrella corporation might be needed to purchase the targeted interests within a specific nation. The example of Monsanto applies here.

Bulletpoint #3 ♦The Multinational Banks and the Multinational Corporations then utilize lobbying interests to manipulate the internal political policy of the targeted nation state(s).

With control of the majority of actual lemons the multinational corporation now holds a different set of financial values than a local farmer or national market. This is why commodities exchanges are essentially dead. In the aggregate the mercantile exchange is no longer a free or supply-based market; it is now a controlled market exploited by mega-sized multinational corporations.

Instead of the traditional ‘supply/demand’ equation determining prices, the corporations look to see what nations can afford what prices. The supply of the controlled product is then distributed to the country according to their ability to afford the price. This is essentially the bastardized and politicized function of the World Trade Organization (WTO). This is also how the corporations controlling WTO policy maximize profits.

Back to the lemons. A corporation might hold the rights to the majority of the lemon production in Brazil, Argentina and California/Florida. The price the U.S. consumer pays for the lemons is directed by the amount of inventory (distribution) the controlling corporation allows in the U.S.

If the U.S. lemon harvest is abundant, the controlling interests will export the product to keep the U.S. consumer spending at peak or optimal price. A U.S. customer might pay $2 for a lemon, a Mexican customer might pay .50¢, and a Canadian $1.25.

The bottom line issue is the national supply (in this example ‘harvest/yield’) is not driving the national price because the supply is now controlled by massive multinational corporations.

The mistake people often make is calling this a “global commodity” process. In the modern era this “global commodity” phrase is particularly nonsense.

A true global commodity is a process of individual nations harvesting/creating a similar product and bringing that product to a global market. Individual nations each independently engaged in creating a similar product.

Under modern globalism this process no longer takes place. It’s a complete fraud. Massive multinational corporations control the majority of production inside each nation and therefore control the global product market and price. It is a controlled system.

EXAMPLE: Part of the lobbying in the food industry is to advocate for the expansion of U.S. taxpayer benefits to underwrite the costs of the domestic food products they control. By lobbying DC these multinational corporations get congress and policy-makers to expand the basis of who can use EBT and SNAP benefits (state reimbursement rates).

Expanding the federal subsidy for food purchases is part of the corporate profit dynamic.

With increased taxpayer subsidies, the food price controllers can charge more domestically and export more of the product internationally. Taxes, via subsidies, go into their profit margins. The corporations then use a portion of those enhanced profits in contributions to the politicians. It’s a circle of money.

In highly developed nations this multinational corporate process requires the corporation to purchase the domestic political process (as above) with individual nations allowing the exploitation in varying degrees. As such, the corporate lobbyists pay hundreds of millions to politicians for changes in policies and regulations; one sector, one product, or one industry at a time. These are specialized lobbyists.

EXAMPLE: The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)

CFIUS is an inter-agency committee authorized to review transactions that could result in control of a U.S. business by a foreign person (“covered transactions”), in order to determine the effect of such transactions on the national security of the United States.

CFIUS operates pursuant to section 721 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended by the Foreign Investment and National Security Act of 2007 (FINSA) (section 721) and as implemented by Executive Order 11858, as amended, and regulations at 31 C.F.R. Part 800.

The CFIUS process has been the subject of significant reforms over the past several years. These include numerous improvements in internal CFIUS procedures, enactment of FINSA in July 2007, amendment of Executive Order 11858 in January 2008, revision of the CFIUS regulations in November 2008, and publication of guidance on CFIUS’s national security considerations in December 2008 (more)

Bulletpoint #4With control over the targeted national industry or interest, the multinationals then leverage export of the national asset (exfiltration) through trade agreements structured to the benefit of lesser developed nation states – where they have previously established a proactive financial footprint.

The process of charging the U.S. consumer more for a product, that under normal national market conditions would cost less, is a process called exfiltration of wealth.  This is the basic premise, the cornerstone, behind the catch-phrase ‘globalism’.

It is never discussed.

To control the market price some contracted product may even be secured and shipped with the intent to allow it to sit idle (or rot). It’s all about controlling the price and maximizing the profit equation. To gain the same $1 profit a widget multinational might have to sell 20 widgets in El-Salvador (.25¢ each), or two widgets in the U.S. ($2.50/each).

Think of the process like the historic reference of OPEC (Oil Producing Economic Countries). Only in the modern era massive corporations are playing the role of OPEC and it’s not oil being controlled, thanks to the WTO it’s almost everything.

Again, this is highlighted in the example of taxpayers subsidizing the food sector (EBT, SNAP etc.), the corporations can charge U.S. consumers more. Ex. more beef is exported, red meat prices remain high at the grocery store, but subsidized U.S. consumers can better afford the high prices.

Of course, if you are not receiving food payment assistance (middle-class) you can’t eat the steaks because you can’t afford them. (Not accidentally, it’s the same scheme in the ObamaCare healthcare system)

Agriculturally, multinational corporate Monsanto says: ‘all your harvests are belong to us‘. Contract with us, or you lose because we can control the market price of your end product. Downside is that once you sign that contract, you agree to terms that are entirely created by the financial interests of the larger corporation; not your farm.

The multinational agriculture lobby is massive. We willingly feed the world as part of the system; but you as a grocery customer pay more per unit at the grocery store because domestic supply no longer determines domestic price.

Within the agriculture community the (feed-the-world) production export factor also drives the need for labor. Labor is a cost. The multinational corps have a vested interest in low labor costs. Ergo, open border policies. (ie. willingly purchased republicans not supporting border wall etc.).

This corrupt economic manipulation/exploitation applies over multiple sectors, and even in the sub-sector of an industry like steel. China/India purchases the raw material, coking coal, then sells the finished good (rolled steel) back to the global market at a discount. Or it could be rubber, or concrete, or plastic, or frozen chicken parts etc.

The ‘America First’ Trump-Trade Doctrine upsets the entire construct of this multinational export/control dynamic. Team Trump focus exclusively on bilateral trade deals, with specific trade agreements targeted toward individual nations (not national corporations).

‘America-First’ is also specific policy at a granular product level looking out for the national interests of the United States, U.S. workers, U.S. companies and U.S. consumers.

Under President Trump’s Trade positions, balanced and fair trade with strong regulatory control over national assets, exfiltration of U.S. national wealth is essentially stopped.

This puts many current multinational corporations, globalists who previously took a stake-hold in the U.S. economy with intention to export the wealth, in a position of holding contracted interest of an asset they can no longer exploit.

Perhaps now we understand better how massive multi-billion multinational corporations and institutions are aligned against President Trump.

    The US farm policy promoted by Nixon’s Sec. of Ag Earl Buts helped corporate agriculture to the detriment of family farmers.

    There are still family farms but they do not recieve the support they need. NFFC (National Family Farm Coalition) promotes socially just farm and food policies and empowers family farmers to reduce corporate control of agriculture.

    Their website states the following: U.S. farm and food policy must change in order to reverse the economic devastation currently faced by our nation’s family farmers and rural communities. In addition, our international trade policy must recognize each nation’s right and responsibility to make their own decisions about how to develop and protect the capacity to grow food, sustain the livelihood of food producers, and feed the people in its own borders. We envision empowered communities everywhere working together democratically to advance a food and agriculture system that ensures health, justice, and dignity for all. Future generations will thrive when the family farm is an economically viable livelihood supported by environmentally sustainable and socially diverse vibrant rural communities.

        US agriculture is not environmentally sustainable. Large corporate farms plant a single crop that relies on GMO seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Monsanto/Bayer is the primary beneficiary of this practice. The resulting crops are devoid of natural nutrients. This is why processed food needs to be artificially fortified.

What I would like to see is that conglomeration must stop. Just think of Amazon, et al, owning or taking over other businesses like they are starving to death, and the result is higher costs for those items. We need to protect the small business and encourage more starting up businesses for I think better quality products and costs that are affordable like I grew up with. These biggies are annoying as hell and literally are forcing themselves on us.

          • Well my family (myself & husband in our 50s & the three of our four kids that live w/ us in their 20s) watched Idiocracy last night. We pretty much laughed our way through it. Very witty, ironic, crass, & disturbing. I don’t know that we’d watch it again but it was definitely worth the viewing.

            Yes that movie probably couldn’t be made the same way today given how much it mocked everything PC.

            My husband looked up Idiocracy on IMDB & it was pretty highly rated overall. The relatively recent Rollerball, which I also acquired from the library, however was given some of the worst IMDB reviews he’d ever seen. (We enjoy reading user reviews, especially of very low rated movies, some of those writers can be Very Entertaining!…) Is it possible you were recommending an earlier version of Rollerball? I might not be able to con anyone else to watch the one I have out now (starring LL Cool Jay etc).

            My special needs son (autistic etc) commented during Idiocracy that a lot of those people in that theoretical future were worse off than this group of special needs people he “fellowships” with on a weekly basis (people with autism, down’s syndrome, & other challenges). He thought that even he could do a better job than most of those idiots portrayed, which of course cracked us all up!

    If you are a small regional manufacturer, you have no where to go for the raw materials to make your product. There is no commodity market, you are literally begging Tyson for their scraps.
    Lucky you to get it and at whatever cost ’cause you have no where else to go.
    And it’s not just control of the raw materials, they’re vertically integrated. They own the corn that feeds the flocks, they own the flocks, they own the kill floors, the processing plants, the packaging , the distribution etc. There is no competition any where in the production of the food you buy.
    You can count on one hand the number of corporations that manufacture all of the meat products in the US.
    They spent the first 15 years buying out all mid sized manufacturers and once they owned the brand the next step was to shutter the plants. The last 15 years have been spent trying to eliminate the remaining family businesses by controlling the raw materials.

The stewards of the land (now Mexican) do not care for they are on the social welfare system, and, get paid as labour as well. Care for the crops is an afterthought. The corporate buyers agree to prices beforehand on acreage. As well the Farm Bill socialistically supports farmers so price signals based upon quality of product do not exist.

    Excellent !! SUNDANCE

    We can see this same GLOBALIZATION or controlled pricing even here state by state . With the goal being maximize profits by regional or state to state pricing by the CoC . Housing prices being the most GLARING . When the BIG CORPORATE BUILDERS use the same taxpayer subsidized illegal labor to build their homes across the nation they can’t claim labor costs to be the pricing factor .

    While the cost of land is relevant the other factors are relatively fixed . You can charge more for the same house in Maryland to a government worker than you can to a private sector worker in just about any other state .

    Taxpayer subsidize housing although a lessor degree that food price manipulation.

    The prices are set to states that rely on taxpayer funded GOVERNMENT JOBS or taxpayer funded contractors on the high end . Then states that rely on private sector jobs on the low end of pricing .

    Unchaining FOOD prices from the global multinational corporate control opens up the market for American’s BREAD BASKET region of Northern California to flourish . Cost benefit analysis replaces GLOBALIZED price fixing .

    OPEC-ing or manipulating the World’s oil market buy throttling supply is out the door . One could extrapolate part 2 of this AMERICA FIRST restore local control as ….NOW THAT YOU (CoC) no longer wield control over our markets …the access to the US MARKET comes with a cost . Oh say a tariff .

    Following the parallel of Steel and Aluminum to also restore the constitutional role of funding SMALL government with tariff’s and excise tax .

    With the US MARKET being approx 1/4 of the WORLD GDP I’d say that access to the US Market is vital to the multinational corporations bottom line . Where as under the past GLOBALIST puppet regiems in the DC Federal Democracy we now have an AMERICA FIRST POTUS to apply the ART OF THE DEAL . To wit …. leveraging that access in favor of the American people for a change instead of purchasing it outright from the DC uniparty via K-street .

    Now the WTO NWO WORLD BANK system will have to pay to play in the USA !!

    “It wasn’t always so. Prior to ratification of the 16th (income tax) Amendment in February 1913, the federal government managed its few constitutional responsibilities without an income tax, except during the Civil War period. During peacetime, it did so largely — or even entirely — on import taxes called “tariffs.” Congress could afford to run the federal government on tariffs alone because federal responsibilities did not include welfare programs, agricultural subsidies, or social insurance programs like Social Security or Medicare.

    This article is simply brilliant! This is the first time I have seen the dots connected.
    Now, here’s the challenge:
    I have a BS in Engineering, an MBA, and forty years of experience both working in Industry and owning multiple businesses. I have seen all the pieces of this over the years, but this is now a unified explanation. I understand. Spot on.
    I have 35 High School students I spend every day with in the classroom, a very liberal wife for the past 37 years, and two daughters, ages 28 and 32. None of these people have a clue about any of this. My wife and daughters, plus a number of my students are intelligent people, considered to be thinkers by their peers. They hold very strong opinions that President Trump is a tool of the elites, advancing the interests of his “rich” buddies, at the expense of the rest of us, the “great unwashed”, and minorities. Many of my immediate friends and family consider me to be almost a “Nazi” because of my beliefs and have on occasion called me that to my face. My Dad grew up in Nazi Germany. I have heard many, many, first hand stories about the Nazis, how they came to power and their tactics. NOTHING could be further from the truth.
    Somehow this has to be boiled down into a simple explanation that High School students and others can believe. I think it can be done. My students are cynical, they are willing to be agents of change, but they have been fooled into thinking that supporting the globalist elites is “fighting the power”. They want a better world for the future. Some are willing to dedicate their lives to it. When my daughters were teenagers, I used to call them “rebels without a clue”. They found “causes” all right – all led by false prophets. Up is down, left is right, right is wrong. America is bad, Anti-American is good.
    This site is terrific – I am starting to revive my Hope again for the future. Almost all of the participants here want to be part of the solution. I have no idea how many trolls Sundance has to remove to keep the discussions on point and authentic, I’ll bet the number is huge.
    Bottom line: I think this is the forum to fabricate a decentralized plan to help turn things around, one person at a time. No single one of us can do it – but it does no good to simply commiserate among ourselves. We need to find a clear, simple message to repeat endlessly and use to recruit young understanders and believers. I think it can be done, it HAS to be done. It’s time to figure out a way to do this. I thought the Tea Parties were the start of this, but the Globalists used Lois Lerner as the tip of their spear to quash them.
    We now have a President to lead the fight – the next step has to be “fifty million farmers with pitchforks”. That will be the unstoppable force we have to help create.
    How do we do it?

      “When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – You may know that your society is doomed.” — Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged”, 1957

      Take away the attribution from the above and millions will agree. Tell them who said it and most will change their minds to be politically correct.

      The place I start with the unbelievers and the #NeverTrumpers is with JFK !!

      What was it that JFK was attempting to do that got him killed ?

      What did he say and mean in his SECRET SOCIETIES speech ?

      What did he mean by ” a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy ” ?

      You see the tactic is to find areas of AGREEMENT . The MSM has polarized TRUMP by design .

      Your challenge is to discuss what Trumps intended plan of MAGA really is without using TRIGGER WORDS like TRUMP or CAPITALISM . Those words have been PROGRAMMED by the Cultural Marxist to trigger HATE in the ill-informed and uninformed.

      My own family practically disowned me because the words I used to warm them TRIGGERED FEAR and ANXIETY . So I modified my tactics . They pulled down their protective UNINFORMED WALLS and we began to communicate again .

      Mostly the just didn’t like to talk politics or religion . The nature of that is they have no understanding of EITHER !! They just want HAPPY TALK and BLUE PILLS .

      THIS is exactly why Trumps slow roll plans . To RED PILL more and more .

      PATIENCE is required and FACTS are not always the solution . Finding areas of agreement pulls down the walls the EGO build up . Once you are there then you can slowly lob in the truth bombs !! GOOD LUCK

        “without using TRIGGER WORDS like TRUMP or CAPITALISM . Those words have been PROGRAMMED by the Cultural Marxist to trigger HATE in the ill-informed and uninformed”.

        That is so true. Once one of those “trigger” words hits the eardrums, it seems to trigger a “turn off” mechanism in some people that tunes out any and all further consideration, no matter how true or persuasive the argument/debate.

        2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

        Also, you see on TV how people like Jesse Watters will be on the street asking people about something like an economic policy. Mr. Watter’s will attribute it to being a democratic policy when it is actually what PDJT proposes.

        The vast majority of people will respond by saying that “it makes sense” or “sounds like a good idea”.

        Then they are dumbfounded when they are told that it is actually one of PDJT’s positions that they just agreed was a great idea.

        Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

          There ya go ! on the money !

          I developed the tactic in the time of TRAITOR 44 . I called it WALKING THE HALLWAY OF AGREEMENT . I used the BOR to get a series of “YES ” answers to questions .

          Little ole ME …

          ” Don’t you agree that we should all have the right to speak our minds without being silenced ? ”

          ” I’d like to live in a world where my personal papers , property and information is protected and secure . How about YOU ? ”

          ” I like where I live because my neighborhood has a fence around it and guards to protect our property and safety . We don’t worry about strangers sneaking in and stealing our stuff or robbing us . Wouldn’ t you like to live in a safe and secure neighborhood too ?”

          ” I believe it is a natural right of ALL AMERICANS to protect themselves from harm or attackers , don’t you ?”

          you see where I’m going here . If the question is asked without political TRIGGER WORDS or MSM planted trigger phrases , even the average American would agree the Bill of Rights is natural .

          Look at the series of Questions above and just add a word or two and your “YES ” response would be likely ..” RACIST BIGOT HOMOPHOBE XENOPHOBE etc ” r

          Once you have them all nicey nice as your best friend that is when their protective walls are down . That is the time to download some real truth . I learned not to expect too much at first but to leave this open for further conversations .

          I set aside my own EGO that wants to unload a YUGE TRUTH BOMB for allowing my Holy Spirit to break down the barriers the MSM build in their minds . I play the LONG GAME of Holy Spirit rater than the short game of EGO .

          I leave them with a puzzle to ponder ..

          REAL EYES …realize …REAL LIES !!

          ” 2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. ”

      Teach, have enjoyed reading your contributions, glad you found CTH, keep writing!

      As for your question on how to Red Pill the ignant and the normies, it seems a complex task, one that I will be contemplating much in the days to come. At the moment, all I can offer is that I suspect that Red Pills are to intended to Wake, but that does not imply that Red Pills are all the same flavor, nor should they be. Likely we need to develop a toolbox full of various thought experiments intended for different people, as well as different circumstances.

      Life presents it’s teachable moments, chances to capitalize on an incident or situation that has already caught our subject’s interest. We should be prepared to seize those moments and use them, without off-putting missionary zeal.

      We might also consider creating our own thought experiments for others, a challenge to answer a question or find and share evidence to support their opinion, regarding matters where an honest person seeking truth can find it, but not where they initially expected to.

      Examples might be to ask students to write an essay defending the superiority of Communism in producing prosperity and individual rights and freedoms, on the basis of facts and figures and history, not propaganda, not emotion. It they aren’t shocked by what they find, if they don’t recognize the depraved and destructive ideology it is on their own, then at least you have a starting point for administering ideally flavored Red Pills. (I highly reccommend The Black Book of Communism as an indispensible reference tool to keep close by for students to happen upon.)

      People attracted to Socialism, Communism, Totalitarianism, don’t truly understand what it is. They are brainwashed from birth. It’s about feelings. They are not only not honest seekers of truth, they aren’t seekers of truth at all. Were they so they would not be Superior Super Special Super Sensitive Socialists at all.

      Challenge them to document evidence supporting their presumptions, without overtly challenging them. This can as easily be done in a conversation I’d think, though one must avoid showing one’s hand at the outset. Easier said than done, I’m sure.

      I think also we must be less anxious to see them arrive at our conclusions right before us as if a light switch had been thrown. Truth and understanding I believe most often comes less suddenly, like the light of the morning dawn.

      Also, I believe ego is a substantial impediment in accepting a near mirror image of a reality they have their very self-worth invested in. Even if there’s a spark behind their eyes, they may not be willing to admit it in front of the challenger. If we are gracious, we let them save face, come to a rational conclusion “on their own,” and, hopefully, begin the process of conversion. It’s far too easy to smother that spark in our eagerness to fan it into flame and feed it great gobs of fuel.

      Not that animated, enthusiastic and frank conversations aren’t a good idea, or a lot of fun. Honestly, our interlocutors may not even be the subject we are intending to influence; those around us hear and listen too.

      We have to have faith that we have good seed to plant, yet not be discouraged by the poor soil we see before us. We don’t truly know that those seeds will or won’t germinate and take root, or that they won’t in time somehow journey to a more hospitable plot. We have seeds, but rain and sun are not our province, we hope and we pray, as we do with all seed that contains such precious potential. To do our part we must resist the temptation to be silent.

      I like the idea of sharing our thoughts on effective flavors for Red Pills. Seeing what thoughts or question Treepers pose to others to pry open their minds. You’ve posed a most intereresting thought experiment yourself, Teach. Quite worthy of pursuing as MAGA rolls on.

      Loved your post, which stirred me up. I was a product of a long line of Democrats in the NE. I was weaned on the NYT (henceforth known as INYT. The I stands for Irrelevant).

      My political perspective changed beginning with coverage by the INYT when Trump threw his hat in the ring. My guts kept telling me what I was reading ‘inauthentically Trump.’ I’d always thought establishment coverage of him to be biased anyway, writing it off as Trump being snubbed by the blue-bloods. But I got to be more critical when they were now covering a presidential candidate, and a lot of what they were saying my gut was telling me, was sounding increasingly ‘inauthentically Trump.’ When I started watching his speeches instead of only letting the INYT interpret for me, I realized the INYT was lying….then I checked other lefty media, and realized they had it in for him too. The day the INYT editorial board endorsed HRC the night before even the 1st primary, fer cryin’ out loud, I’d had enough, and unsubscribed….that was a big step for me. Then looking for alternative news sources, I started off with FOX, which a lot of treepers criticize, but believe-you-me, it was oodles better than nothing – anyway, I finally found these scoundrels here, and I’ve been re-examining everything I thought I knew about history, politics, and economics, ever since.

      None of this went over well with my family and friends, and I was disappointed to find them quick to think that overnight, I had turned sexist, (my own sex!) racist, homophobic, and fascist! I thought things would calm down after the election, but with Trumps winning, my family comprised of ‘educators’ became increasingly worked up.

      It’s been hard, with the exception of my Canadian husband also taking the road to the right. He inherited some beautiful firearms, and since Canada’s also been assaulting gun owners rights, he started smelling the covfefe, LOL & thank God.

      My own opinion of trying to educate people, is do it carefully; your job could be at stake. You know, kids come home and blurt things out to a leftist parent, and ‘uh-oh’…. Some of my family has been whipped into a frenzy by the Teachers Union, which will defend or attack you depending what side you’re on. They loved Obama, supported HRC, and the majority of them I believe, are ‘resistors.’ In case you missed it, here’s a great Sundance article on how the Dems spun that one:

        I went to a business conference about 25 years ago where Trump spoke solely on NAFTA. I live in the central valley of California which is primarily farmland. My husband has worked in the agriculture business for 30 years and his father has been a farmer in Oklahoma for 45 plus years. Yeah, he’s 80 and still farming.

        I mention this because his views today are the very same as they were in 1993. George H.W. Bush signed NAFTA is 1992.

        So there you go…it’s always the same criminals.

    “Approximately a decade ago the U.S. Dept of Agriculture stopped using U.S. consumer food prices within the reported measures of inflation. The food sector joined the ranks of fuel and energy prices in no longer being measured to track inflation and backdrop Fed monetary policy.” – SD

    When I researched this, I found that the USDA uses the Consumer Price Index (CPI) provided by the Dept. of Labor to estimate inflation. The CPI for food is one component of the all-items CPI. The CPI uses a “basket of goods” (175 in all) as their measure. This Basket of Goods currently includes meats, poultry, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bakery items, and full service restaurant food. It also includes gasoline (all types), fuel oil, piped gas, and electricity costs in its calculation.

    Can someone please explain how this squares with SD’s claim in the article that fuel, energy and food are excluded from the reported measure of inflation? Thanks in advance.


    • reverence1 says:

      It looks for me he refers to core inflation, which does not include food and energy (“as they are volatile”).


      • Pelicansview says:

        Thanks for that. It looks like core inflation, which excludes fuel, energy and food, is based on the Core Personal Consumption Expenditures or (CPCE). This index is primarily used by the Feds in determining interest rates. The USDA, still uses the CPI metric as far as I can tell, which is also used to tune social security benefit adjustments.


    • Deplorable_Infidel says:

      I know one of the ways they did it was to stop using the same exact item. For instance, say one of the items measured was a can of name brand Campbells tomato soup.

      Well, at some point “they” starting using a generic store brand of tomato soup and considering it to be the same thing. Another prime example of lying statistics.

      My father is a retired truck driver. He worked PT for awhile after retirement. During one PT trip he brought over a load of golf shirts from Canada that were manufactured overseas.
      Samples were taken from the load to check for drugs (soaked into the fabric by cartels and later laundered out). The custom’s inspector at the Peace Bridge (Buffalo, NYFt. Erie, ON) told him that the retailer paid ~$5 each for them. They would sell for about $50 in the US stores.

          It was just routine sampling done because of previous attempts, many successful until it was discovered. My main point was the profit margin on the imported goods. The reason my father found out about the profit was because the load was stopped and the Custom’s Inspector was just making small talk while he took the samples.

    I have know this for years. Multi-national corporations are almost like nations. Their interests are profits and their markets are global. They do not have loyalty to a country. If they can route raw materials and production around the world and then sell to markets for maximum profits they will. China is a government and corporation in one. President Trump is upsetting their plans by putting the interests of the United States and the citizens ahead of multi-national corporations interests. Politicians have been in bed with them in an incestuous relationship for decades. My favorite mantra is appropriate here, Follow the Money!!!!!!!

    In the fractional reserve GLOBALIST banking system ” inflation ” is not only JUKIN’ THE STATS on multinational corporate price manipulation numbers as much as it is
    EXPORTED INFLATION, Exported inflation is when a nation exchanges its currency for FED NOTE to buy oil and energy in the World market . The status as CURRENCY OF RECORD of the FED NOTE .

    The novice asks …WHY DOES A Nation trillions of dollars in debt send billions in foreign aide around the world ?

    The answer is simple . To keep the CRACK HEADS addicted to FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE CRACK !! Because it can be printed up or digitized out of THIN AIR . And PRESIDENT TRUMP has exposed …the FED could give a sh$% about the American people or worker .

    Each time a country converts their currency to FED NOTES they EAT some of our inflation . Each time new debt is issued to print more money those nations have to work HARDER to buy the same amount of energy with the fiat notes .

    The DC FED democracy sends foreign countries millions they return BILLIONS to the owners of the not federal and no reserve . If they send billions they expect TRILLIONS of 10’s or 110’s of billions in return. or ” your gotta print money to STEAL LABOR & RESOURCES around the world ”

    Rinse and repeat . The GLOBAL HUMAN FARMERS system has run it’s course . NOW WHAT ?
