One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes – Part 5 of 6

by Brandon Smith

(Editor’s Note: Brandon surprised me! He has two more installments of this series! Here is Number Five. I do not agree with all of Brandon’s conclusions, but he does understand that the American economy…as well as the US Government…is on a headlong rush to the cliff’s edge.)

One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes – Part 4

by Brandon Smith

(Editor’s Note: FINAL INSTALLMENT of this important series. Are you turning your paper assets into gold and silver? I hope these four articles have convinced you that IN OUR LIFETIMES there will be an EPIC economic shitstorm. Many people will be utterly destroyed. A tiny few will profit immensely from the chaos and will thrive. In every market, up or down, there is VAST OPPORTUNITY FOR WEALTH.

Brandon comes to some conclusions that differ from mine regarding China. But whether he is right or not, I am certain that a nation with vast reserves of gold will fare better than the USA. The TRUE Golden Rule is: “Them that have the gold make the rules.”)

(Editor’s Note: WordPress, the host of this blog, deactivated the blog Friday night, indicating that I had violated their Terms of Service as related to Advertising Policy. This blog has been going continuously since 2009…over FOUR YEARS with a perfect record of compliance. WordPress did not send me an email…make a note on my blog…call me…and tell me that there was some piece of content they wanted removed. They just shut me down. We here at DumpDC may need to move from WordPress to a private web host. We still love WordPress, but feel their treatment of us was pretty heavy handed. The site came back online about 3:00 Eastern Monday, and WP still has not communicated with me to tell me what they want done. We await their pleasure…)

Welcome to Flash Editorials for December 1st, 2012. Christmas…Bah, Humbug!!

I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by w w w dot Dump D C dot com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.


Now, to the news.

The pickins are pretty slim these days after the Obama win, but we do soldier on.

The Nation I: Two tickets for the $588 million Powerball lottery were sold Wednesday night…one in Missouri and one in Arizona. There is a hidden code in your Powerball ticket. If you still have one handy, grab it and I’ll tell you how to read your losing Powerball ticket. The First number is the number of car payments you still have to make. The second number is the number of years you’ll have to keep working at that job you despise. Third number is the number of major life mistakes you’ve made that led to a near-impossible Lotto win being your only hope for a debt-free existence…or a comfy retirement. Fourth number is how many dollars you have in your checking account. Fifth number is how many times you stood in front of the bathroom mirror rehearsing the ways you were going to tell your co-workers and boss to kiss your ass. And the sixth number is the number of times you will re-check the ticket before accepting that you had not a chance in hell of winning. (I stole that off of Facebook.)

The Nation II: The only other story worth mentioning here in national news is the death of Zig Ziglar. Zig died Wednesday in Dallas from complications of pneumonia. He was 86. Ziglar was the undisputed Emperor of all motivational speakers. He filled auditoriums where ever he spoke. His career spanned five decades, and Zig was…and still is…greatly beloved by those like me who are personal development junkies. His most famous quote is, “You can get anything in life you want if you’ll just help enough other people get what THEY want.” Rest well, Mister Ziglar. You’ve earned it.

International I: A tectonic economic shift occurred in Phnom Penh, Cambodia during the week of November 16th to 20th, and America still does not know about it. The 20th ASEAN Summit of 2012 brought together thirteen nations that represent half of the world’s population. Our Dearly Beloved Leader Barry showed up at the conference with his bag 0’tricks, and was politely tolerated until he left, as is the Asian way. America has little to offer the world at this point, and Obama’s proposals for American participation in Asia were shunned entirely. The world is lining up with China, and the nations of the developing world are looking to China for economic leadership…and finding it. China is leading the BRICS nations in an effort to replace the US Dollar as world reserve currency. Remember that China is the world’s largest producer of gold and silver, and China does not disclose much of their mining output. China also is not selling gold outside its own borders. So their lead on the world in gold production is far greater than anyone but the Chinese know. China has been a net seller of US Treasuries over the past year, not adding any more bonds to their holdings, but quietly selling them. And curiously, Japan has been the biggest foreign buyer of US bonds lately. Just goes to show you. Japan’s economy imploded from too much debt about 20 years ago and has not fully recovered. And now they are adding on more American debt instruments? Isn’t this the nation that just had a giant earthquake and tsunami that destroyed much of their nuclear power generating infrastructure? Japan should be plowing all its Yen into its own nation, not helping prop up Washington. Japan would not be buying all this debt unless it perceived some benefit from it. Don’t you wonder what DC has promised the Japanese government? These things have a way of leaking out. Stay tuned.

Yesterday’s DumpDC posting was all about this. Scroll down and make sure you read the article entitled, “The Asian Pivot Already Happened.”

Business I: This week’s Reuters Online has a story about entrepreneurs and “Lean Startup.” That term defines a web businessman starting with little or no capital investment. Another term I’ve seen is “Ultralight Startup.” Google that term to learn more. But if you have never done an online business, what do you do? If you ever dreamed of owning a small business, the timing for starting one could not be better. Your choice of which business to start is more important than any other consideration. Let me show you our business at: www.PortableOnlineBusiness.com

Here is tonight’s commercial message. Anybody read the Tim Ferriss book, The Four Hour Workweek? The subtitle is ”Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join The New Rich.” Ever heard a sexier title…a more irresistible tease? Who wouldn’t want a four hour work week? But I have something that is a variation on that. Maybe I’m not as good as Tim, or perhaps I have different talents and abilities than he has. But my system works just GREAT!

Let me offer to you the joys of 7 Hour Wealth! At 7 Hour Wealth, our sub-title is “Live How You Want To Live, Live Where You Want To Live, And Make Money Doing It!”

We still LOVE the DEAL concept that Tim Ferriss teaches. DEAL is an acrostic for a process of creating time freedom, which is what we are all about:

D – Definition: You must define how you want your life to operate before you can have it.
E – Elimination: We teach you how to get rid of time gobbling activity in favor of time spent that is rich in results.
A – Automation: being to outsource the stuff you know best to others, thereby freeing up your time while still maintaining control of the process.
L – Liberation: this is about living the success you defined at the beginning. And this level of success allows for the ultimate luxury…mobility and the freedom to live by your own rules, not someone else’s rules.

Sound tempting?

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 357,015 in the week ending November 17th. This is a whopping decrease of 46,541 over the previous week and is attributable to Holiday merchants hiring. Curiously, the Labor Department NEVER reports the number of claimants that reached the end of their benefits and fell out of the system. But the story is the number. Another 357,000 people just like you filed new jobless claims last week. Just last week. And corporations all across America will shed jobs in the final weeks of 2012 in an attempt to show greater profitability at the end of the 4th quarter. It happens every year.

And I’ll say it again. Think about all those jobs said to have been “created” by the Obama Administration, or promised by schmucks like Mitt Romney. First…government does not create jobs, either in the public sector or the private sector. Jobs are created by capital, not by taxation. Capital is investment; taxation is theft with the implied threat of death. All jobs are not created equal. If you create two jobs that pay $10 an hour in the low-paying service sector to replace the high-paying engineering job in manufacturing that paid $50 an hour, you can truthfully say you created more jobs than you lost. But the economic impact is not the same. This is the dirty little secret of the politician and job creation. And the only reason they can get away with this over and over is that the American people don’t know the difference and don’t know the numbers behind the headlines.

In Sports: Big rivalry in the NFL between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons got decided in Atlanta’s favor Thursday night with a 23-13 win. That leaves the Falcons with the best record in the NFL at 11-1, and the Saints effectively out of any hopes of getting to the playoffs. Playoffs? Playoffs? Jim Mora.

In Entertainment: The Rolling Stones are beginning their 50th Anniversary Tour with a show in London on Sunday night, then on to three more gigs in America…in the New York area. Can you imagine these old coots, all nearly 70 years old, still playing kick-ass rock and roll? Jagger was born in 1943…do the math. And what Vegas bookie would have even taken a bet on whether Keith Richards would even be alive in 2012? But here they are, doing four more concerts. And their concerts will be over two hours long, with nearly two dozen songs performed. But only four concerts…they’re old wankers. Ancient tossers.

Finally, in Entertainment: JRR Tolkien’s epic book The Hobbit has been lovingly turned into a three-movie series by Peter Jackson, the producer that brought us the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Hobbit One will be in theaters on December 14th. You must see this film.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for watching. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at Dump D C: Good night and good luck.

The Asian Pivot Already Happened

November 30, 2012

The “Asian Pivot” in the title is a recently-invented phrase which describes world nations pivoting away from American allegiance and pivoting toward Asia and specifically China.

Spengler is a link to an outstanding article by “Spengler” at The Asian Times. You MUST read this. The American Main Stream Media will not report this, yet this meeting that happened November 16th – 20th, was the single most important market shift in the last 100 years.

Here are a few excerpts:

“It is symptomatic of the national condition of the United States that the worst humiliation ever suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president personally, passed almost without comment last week.

Does the United States have a competitive advantage? Apart from commercial aircraft, power-generating equipment, and agriculture, it has few areas of real industrial pre-eminence. Cheap natural gas helps low-value-added industries such as fertilizer, but the US is lagging in the industrial space.

…The US still dominated the nuclear power plant industry. With the sale of the Westinghouse nuclear power business to Toshiba, and Toshiba’s joint ventures with China to build (thorium) power plants locally, that advantage has evaporated.

The problem is that Americans have stopped investing in the sort of high-tech, high-value-added industries that produce the manufactures that Asia requires.”

Welcome to Flash Editorials for November 23, 2012. I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by w w w dot Dump D C dot com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.

This was the week of Turkey Day, so not much happening in America except overeating. But before we go to the news, let’s talk about something called a ‘Black Swan event.” A Black Swan event was the subject of a book by Nassim Taleb entitled ”The Black Swan.” A black swan even is an event that is a surprise to the observer, nearly impossible to predict, has a major effect, and is usually only understood in hindsight. Got the concept? Now think about the turkey that adorned your Thanksgiving table. He recently had a Black Swan event. From his earliest consciousness, he was fed plentifully every day. Based upon his life experience, there was no reason for him to think that this lifestyle would not continue. Abruptly he was slaughtered. For the turkey, or for the pig that provided you your ham, there was no hindsight…no understanding of the event.

This Is A Black Swan Event.

As Soren Kierkegaard said, “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to accept what is true.” Don’t allow secession to be a Black Swan event in your life.

Now, to the news.

The Nation I: I had an epiphany this week. I figured out why Washington and the Federal Reserve are continuing with Quantitative Easing III. Chairman Bernanke said it was to help the fragile economy. But that was only the latest lie. The Fed could not care less about the economy. The Fed is buying US Treasuries and dropping that so-called liquidity into the US Banking sector. But banking cannot loan that money to business at market interest rates. So, what does the banker do? He loans his money back to the Fed for a safe return, no market risk. But this financial circle jerk protects WASHINGTON from higher interest rates on its own debt. If DC had to start paying anything north of 4%, it would melt DC down entirely. All taxation and all borrowed money would have to go to service the debt. No money for any government program, including Social Security and Medicare. DC is just covering their own asses and kicking the can down the road just a little farther. They will deal with the future crash when it happens…just not today.

The Nation II: Is it just me, or have any of you noticed that changing the party in power NEVER changes policy? Could it be that the two parties are essentially one party? It would be one thing if one party stood for strict Constitutionality, and the other party rejected strict Constitutionality. But BOTH parties totally ignore that tattered old document and do whatever the hell they choose. Actually, the truth is that they do what they are TOLD.

Now that the election is over, President Stepin Fetchit and his Congressional Homeboy Posse are now getting the Mainstream Media worked up over the latest meme, which is the phrase “The Fiscal Cliff.” Now… a moment. Now, for you friends out there that don’t know who Stepin Fetchit was…here’s a little history. Back in the 1920s and 30s an black actor named Lincoln Perry played a character named Stepin Fetchit that was very popular in movies. The name was a play on words…the words that a slaveowner would say to his slave… “I need my umbrella. Step and Fetch it.”

Stepin Fetchit and Will Rogers

This character was described as “the laziest man in the world.” The name Stepin Fetchit became an automatic label for a lazy, subservient, bumbling, dimwitted, good-for-nothing black man. So now you know who Stepin Fetchit was. And the reason I use that term today is that Mister Obama is Stepin Fetchit for the oligarchy that runs America. But don’t get the idea that Barry is the first. All of the presidents since Reconstruction have been Stepin Fetchit for the oligarchy. He’s just the latest. And Congress is filled with Stepin Fetchits, and that ain’t about their skin color.

But I digress.

This topic of the Fiscal Cliff was not discussed before the election, and it is almost as if the White House Press Secretary issued talking points in the briefing room for the reporters to carry back to their offices and implement. But now that the so-called Sabbath Gasbags (thanks Rachel Maddow) have done their duty and opened up the topic, the Republicans, starting with House Majority Leader John Boner, are lining up to make more compromises on keeping the spending going and raising your taxes. Both sides would get what they want if they would just shut the hell up and live with the deal they made in 2011. The Democrats would get huge cuts in military spending, and the Republicans would get automatic cuts in domestic spending. But BOTH SIDES cannot bear the thought of allowing the other side even the smallest victory. And even right after an election, Washington cannot abide the reality of big spending cuts sending the American economy into another tailspin. The scary part of this story is that the power elite talking about this so-called Fiscal Cliff doesn’t reveal how bad things are, and will help immunize DC from blame when the shit hits the fan. You can be certain that Washington will blame free enterprise, capitalism and the wealthy for the economic collapse that is at the bottom of that Fiscal Cliff.

International I: This week I saw news reports and alleged photos that were supposed to prove that Iran (who else) was helping Venezuela build intercontinental ballistic missile silos in Venezuela. When US State Department reps were asked about the story, they said they could not vouch for these reports. I think these reports are planted stories…probably by the CIA. Think about it. Who are DC’s two biggest thorns in the flesh? Iran and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Doesn’t anybody else think it’s just too convenient that these two countries are supposed to be in cahoots on ICBMs? But whether the story is true or not…know what would make the story go away? Washington minding its own business and not pissing on all the other countries of the world and telling them it’s raining…that could make our enemies at least not wish us harm. But what do I know?

Business I: I am Founder of a private, secret, members-only Twitter group. We are limiting our membership to just 20 members, 5 are already in. If you have a Twitter following larger than 10,000, my group will give you exposure to over 200,000 tweets each day FOR FREE. If you want this kind of exposure for your Tweets, contact me on Twitter @russlongcore. Follow me, then leave me a direct message. We require members to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Here is tonight’s commercial message. Would you like to learn how you can make all your social networking PAY YOU! Let me introduce you to a new company named Solavei. Solavei just launched nationwide on September 21, 2012. They have created a company that will allow YOU to refer your friends and relatives and make money by doing it. You don’t have to sell anything. Simply post messages and links and let your friends, family and acquaintances look for themselves. If they like what they see and make a purchase, you get paid!!

Solavei’s first Value Proposition is this: Unlimited talk, text and data on a 4G nationwide network for $49.00 per month. No Contract. No Credit Checks. No Deposits. You can bring your phone and phone number with you. And enrolling takes about 5-6 minutes online. I saved $46 a month by switching! That’s $552 a year and I’m getting more that I got with ATT.

Think about this: Cell phone service is a life-essential service that nearly every person from age 10 to age 100 uses every day. And mobile phone users will not voluntarily give up their phone service. What would they do? Get a land line? That requires credit checks and deposits. So phone bills…like utility bills…will get paid every month even if other expenses get cut or eliminated altogether. That makes the business recession-proof.

Solavei’s business model is this: Refer people you know to Solavei. When those people sign up like you did, you will receive monthly commissions as long as those new customers remain Solavei customers. Solavei even has a plan whereby members can have their mobile phone service FOR FREE. How many people getting free phone service are going to switch to another carrier? NONE! No other phone provider can beat FREE, can they?

To learn more, go to http://www.DumpDC.com and look for this Flash Editorial article. Scroll down to the Solavei video, it’s only six minutes long. Watch it, then sign up TODAY!!

What is Solavei? from Solavei on Vimeo.

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 397,691 in the week ending November 17th. This is a whopping decrease of 80,872 over the previous week and is attributable to Hurricane Sandy hitting the Northeast. The previous week jumped up by over 100,000 and dropped by 80,000 a week later. But the story is the number. Another 397,000 people just like you filed new jobless claims just last week. Just last week.

And about all those jobs said to have been created by the Obama Administration, or promised by schmucks like Mitt Romney. All jobs are not created equal. If you create two jobs that pay $10 an hour in the low-paying service sector to replace the high-paying engineering job in manufacturing that paid $50 an hour, you can truthfully say you created more jobs than you lost. But the economic output is not the same. This is the dirty little secret of the politician and job creation. And the only reason they can get away with this over and over is that the American people don’t know the difference and don’t know the numbers behind the headlines.

In Sports: The Macho Man took his final shot to the head last Tuesday. Famous Puerto Rican Boxer Hector “Macho Man” Camacho was sitting in a car outside a bar in San Juan Tuesday night when a gunman shot him in the head. Doctors have declared Camacho clinically brain dead. The other occupant of the car was also shot and killed. Camacho had a professional boxing career record of 79-6-3. He had won the world titles in the Super Lightweight, Lightweight and Junior Welterweight divisions. Camacho had drug abuse issues throughout his life, and police found cocaine in the car where he was murdered.

Finally, in Entertainment: I watched the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” last night with The Redhead. British retirees travel to Jaipur India where they all stay in a fixer-upper hotel. There is no violence. There is no sex. There is no filthy dialogue. There is just humanity and love gently shown. Please rent this movie. There are a lot of spiritual themes in the movie that have nothing to do with any one religion. Carl Jung said, “You must give up the life you’ve planned for the life that is waiting for you.” This movie is all about that. See it.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for watching. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at Dump D C: Good night and good luck.
