Politics: 5000 troops will remain permanently in DC for the foreseeable future. A wall remains around the Capital Building with check points at intersections around the area.

Next week the first impeachment for a former president will start creating a new precedent for charging former presidents for alleged crimes. If this goes through here is the list of crimes our former presidents could be charged with who are still alive.

Barak Obama: The assassination of US citizens without trying to apprehend them or giving them due process. Drone strikes violating international law. Prosecution of reporters in violation of the First Amendment. Illegal surveillance of a political opponent.

George W. Bush: Illegal invasion of a foreign country under false evidence of international crimes. Death of 2 million Iraqis.

William Jefferson Clinton: Illegal sex with a Minor.

Economics: After the Reddit hedge fund attack a new series of article is being published pushing the idea that Reddit investors are buying up silver. A news story posted on YouTube by RT even sold the idea that Silver is the next boom. While these stories have been proven to be false the media still tries to sell them as verified facts. If you go to reddit the top thread is Do Not Buy Silver! Citadel, the company at the forefront of the hedge fund shorting scandal, owns a large percentage of silver stocks. The media’s push for people to buy silver and paper stocks is to cut the losses of the hedge fund that is losing money on their bet. This goes to show that not only is the game rigged but there are people in power who will try to use the media to change the game to their favor.

Self-defense: HR 127 is gaining some press now appearing on several YouTube channels and being talked about on the Tim Pool podcast. Odds are favorable that the gun bill brought to Congress by a Texas House Rep will not pass but it is 2021 and nobody can guess as to what might happen next.

The bill includes such extreme laws as a gun registration, licensing to own a firearm, psychological evaluations, a ban on military style weapons, a ban on .50 caliber rifles, and a license to own a historical firearm whether it works or not. Copies of this bill can be found at:

Editorial: The Great Reset book review is under way. More installments will come out as I plow through this drivel.

The editing for my next book is coming to a close and should be available soon. Grey Nation will be available through Amazon and I will post when it goes on sale.

Special thanks to everyone who bought The Bangor Shuffle and continue to follow my work over the years. There is still some excitement when I see that a copy has sold.

Politics: Construction is underway for a permanent wall around the capital building and the presence of national guard troops is being extended suggesting a permanent post in the nation’s capital.

A bill was brought before congress to turn Washington DC into a state allowing for two more senators.

An executive order signed 3 days into the new administration cancelled all funding for the border wall between the US and Mexico.

Economics:

Redditors use Robinhood to kill Hedge Funds

A few days ago, the story broke of a group on Reddit pooling their money together to buy up stocks like Gamestop in order to drive the price up. The stocks were hovering around $3-4 per share and once the buying started it quickly rose. Several hedge funds had shorted the stock, betting that it would drop even further or that the company would go out of business, in doing so they shorted 140% of the stock available. This is illegal. Since the stock went up to almost $500 per share the Hedge funds were obligated to buy the stocks back for the new price costing them billions of dollars. Once it was learned that the Robinhood app was being used to buy the stocks and drive the price up, Robinhood ceased all buying of the stock and traders could only sell in an effort to drive the price down, taking the debt off that hedge funds. Most traders kept their stock, maintaining the price around $350. Robinhood has a partnership with the hedge fund group Citadel who is close to losing $1billion dollars due to Gamestop trading through Robinhood. The reddit page that this was organized on was taken down for hate speech. Currently the total loss for hedge funds is around 75 billion dollars and rumors are spreading that the Redditors are now looking at gold and silver which they presume to be undervalued.

To make matters more interesting, the new Treasury Secretary, Janet Yelling, was paid $810,000 to do a 45 min speech for one of the hedge funds connected to the Gamestop debacle. When the White house was asked about the obvious conflict of interest the response was “she is the first woman secretary of treasury.”

The End of Big Oil

The leasing of Federal land to oil companies was halted by the Biden administration. In the last four years the US became the largest producer of oil in the world. The excessive pumping of oil by Saudi Arabia and Russia drove the price down to almost negative numbers in early 2020. Now that fracking operations have come to a close and the life span of a fracking site is 1-3 years the time of oil dominance by the US is gone. Gas has already risen to $2.50 a gallon in Michigan and I expect it to go higher has demand rises from the reduction of lockdowns and economies opening back up. The price of oil will increase and the US will be back to importing what we need to use with an increased cost due to less oil on the market.

Food: Under one of the 42 new executive orders signed by President Biden 30% of all land in the United States will be preserve for wildlife by 2030. Included in this order is the authorization for farmers to be paid to not use their farmland and allow it to return to nature.

This is a copy of the law passed by Boris Johnson in the UK that would mandate 30% of the British Isles turned into a wildlife refuge. The island country is already limited as to how much food they can grow for their population. By using fossil fuels, they can produce enough food to feed 10 million people. The current population is 66.65 million and most trade has been cut off from the EU due to covid-19 restrictions and Brexit.

This comes at a time when all grains are in short supply especially soy. The department of agriculture adjusted their books for how much soy is in the US and it is less than originally anticipated. Currently, China is buying from the US and where ever they can find soy available. The crops that were expected out of south America fell short when a La Nina caused a drought for the season and no soy was grown.

Editorial:

What to Expect in the Coming Years

Biden has been president for just over a week as I write this and already 42 executive orders have been signed. Included in those orders is the theft of land to be turned into a wildlife refuge, the termination of oil companies in the US, and more surveillance on US citizens. Washington DC is occupied by National Guard troops and an increased level of law enforcement. The most popular president ever elected is acting like the president of Somalia who is not in control of his own country. More money is being printed to keep things moving and more lockdown measures appear to be coming our way while some states open back up. There is a game being played with the American people and we never asked to be a part of it. While the democrats are in power of the white house, senate, and house they act like they are at war with half of the country. People who do not follow their political ideology are labeled as domestic terrorist and some people are losing their jobs for having accounts on Parler and Gab.

A crunch is coming and it will come from all angles. With the loss of jobs many people will become dependent on the government for income. With less food national rationing will become a new policy while the production of food will be regulated to cause the shortage. Look forward to mandatory gun buy backs. Hunting will be regulated to the point that most people can’t afford the fees. Land will be seized by the government as the taxes rise. Welcome to the social credit score. With monetary transactions turning more towards digit currency how much a person receives or is allowed to spend will be dictated by the thought police. If you say something wrong in a conversation you could see you balance go to zero. We have already seen this with the cancellation of Trump as he is integrated back into normal society.

The fascist state is here and we should not be surprised it is brought to us by the same people who claim to be anti-fascist. A puppet sits in the white house signing papers presented to him as the rest of the staff waits for him to die. John Kerry wasn’t kidding when he said that the new administration would roll out the great reset at lighting speed and with nobody to question these orders. The only way to override an executive order is for congress to vote it down afterwards. With the Dems holding the senate and the house the executive orders will remain laws and the rest of congress will sit with their thumbs up their butts like the useless idiots they are. If they really want to do a great reset they could start with themselves.

Jordan Peterson solves the Twitter problem

Appropriately enough, Jordan Peterson announced on Twitter that he is backing the formation of a new platform called Thinkspot. There are several hopes and purposes for this platform, providing a town forum where people can comment and have conversations without the threat of being banned or kicked off, and a new payment system to replace Patreon after they started banning creators due to public outcry. The internet is still the wild west and Peterson just started a new town with its own rules and a new sheriff. Criticism has already started to flood in through various news outlets claiming that Peterson will be shadow banning users from having their comments seen in threads. What they fail to see is that this policy solves the Twitter problem. Twitter will remove a person from their platform completely if comments are made that violate their policies, however policies are always changing and they are not uniformly enforced across the platform. Thinkspot has two things going for it that take this kind of policing out of the equation. Users will have to pay to participate, that alone will eliminate many trolls from using the site. Comments will be voted on by other members as to their importance in the conversation. If you have more likes you move up to the top of the thread, if you have move dislikes you move down likely never to be seen. People paying for a site will have an interest to have less of their time spent reading trolling comments and want more content in line with what the conversation is about. To survive on the site like this, trolls will either have to be creative and funny or have a valid point that other people will recognize. Posting comments like “your mom should have swallowed” will likely disappear and the thrill of being a douchebag on the internet will disappear on this site.
People I know have compared Thinkspot to Reddit but I have a feeling that the subjects discussed will be more concentrated on certain subjects as opposed to having everything under the sun discussed. In a sense Thinkspot might have brought democracy to the internet. It acknowledges that not every voice is equal, especially if someone is speaking without any substance behind their words, and the public can choose as to who is able to be heard more. This could literally be the opposite of our current news channels where the person who brings in ratings has more airtime. The users have a hand in filtering comments and therefore have a better experience online without needing to shuffle through garbage to find a gem.
I hope that more sites like this are created in the future, I can’t imagine that they won’t. even with Donald trump being the poster boy of Twitter the company has failed to make a profit in the last three years. Facebook might want to lookout as well. They haven’t made any friends with their policies over the past three years and with their involvement in the last election its not difficult to see why. I can’t see the Kremlin investing in infiltrating a site like Thinkspot only to have their content shuffled to the bottom of the feed and never seen.
The big question is whether or not people will be willing to pay to use a site like this. I am already on the waiting list and hope to have an invite to the beta version. If Facebook and Twitter have no interest in fixing their sites its nice to see that an alternative is on the way. Welcome to the new town of the Dark web. Read a book, have something to say, or your voice will not matter.
