No One Wants To End Up Holding The Bag

A report from Forbes. “Sagaponack, New York’s 11962 marked its third consecutive year as the second most expensive Zip code in the United States. Its $3.875 million median price was the result of a 10% year-over-year drop — the fourth year in the past five that this exclusive Hamptons community’s median sale price decreased. In 2015, it dethroned Atherton from the top spot with a jaw-dropping $8.5 million median, a position it managed to hold onto in 2016, despite a 35% price drop.”

“New York City’s real estate market felt the effects of Covid-19 at a sharper degree than others. The report found that no New York City Zip codes ranked among the 10 most expensive in the country.”

The Review Journal in Nevada. “Las Vegas started the year on strong footing. But the pandemic shut off much of the economy virtually overnight, turning the Strip into a ghost town and sparking catastrophic job losses. The valley’s unemployment rate, just 3.9 percent in February, shot up to 34 percent in April after Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered casinos and other Nevada businesses closed to help contain the virus’ spread. Resorts and other businesses have since reopened, but unemployment remains high in the valley, at 13.8 percent as of October, state officials recently reported.”

“John Beckmann has been a Las Vegas casino host for 20 years, luring gamblers with free airfare, show tickets and the like. Beckmann was laid off from Treasure Island days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Nearly a decade later, he and his wife lost a fortune on their house after the real estate bubble burst. And now he’s out of a job at Texas Station after the coronavirus pandemic shut off tourism.”

“His wife is still working, but amid enormous job losses in Las Vegas, he isn’t hunting for work. ‘There’s really nothing out there,’ Beckmann said.”

From Pasadena Now in California. “Pasadena rents have declined steadily since the start of the pandemic, currently representing the 10th highest in the Los Angeles Metro area, down from 7th highest in April, according to a new report. The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Pasadena dropped by $240 over the course of the pandemic, according to Zumper. Prior to that, it had been even higher, Zumper analyst Crystal Chen said.”

“‘Pasadena one-bedroom rent was consistently priced above the $2,100 threshold until April 2020 when it started a steady monthly freefall, reaching its lowest point on our latest November metro report at $1,850,’ she said. The decrease amounted to a 6.1% drop in October, compared with last year, according Zumper. The average cost of renting a two-bedroom apartment in the city had decreased to $2,640, representing a 10.8% drop compared with the previous year, the report found.”

“For small landlords, Bryant Companies property management, owner Matthew Bryan said issues of nonpayment due to the pandemic can have a much more significant impact. ‘A lot of mom and pop type of owners, in some cases, are caught between the buzz saw of: Rent is not coming in, but they’re still obligated to make repairs and their expenses haven’t gone away. So I think it’s really tough for those kinds of owners when they are experiencing vacancies,’ he said.”

From Mortgage Professional America on California. “Few cities have experienced the ups and downs of this year’s residential market the way Los Angeles has. The country’s second-largest city is defined as much by its suburbs as its downtown core, and has seen a variety of growth, stagnation, and decline across its various real estate markets. Downtown condo dwellers have struck out into the ‘burbs, in line with national trends, and the downtown multifamily market has stayed depressed.”

“‘This pandemic, in my opinion, is the time in history where millionaires and even billionaires are made,’ said Jeff Holzmann, CEO of IRR Management Services, a crowdfunded real estate investment firm. ‘There are some real estate investments that in 2019 had an efficient market rate, and are currently selling for a fraction of that price.'”

“Matt Douglas, who has been working on the frontlines of the multifamily and retail mortgage industry as principal of Venture West Funding in El Segundo California, within LA county, said the landscape for investment has grown more challenging this year. ‘The appetite for lending from banks has normalized somewhat, but it’s still very cautious,’ Douglas said when asked how his day-to-day is changing. ‘The underwriting has been much more conservative, just about everybody is reducing loan-to-values or increasing the debt coverage requirements on any loan.'”

The Mendocino Voice in California. “Ed Keller was sure there had been a mistake when he opened a letter from his home insurance company and read that his policy had been cancelled, and that purchasing a new policy would cost four times what he had paid in the past. Bewildered, he picked up the phone and called his provider, Mark Davis Insurance, to clear things up, only to hear from a company representative that it was not an error at all. Keller’s insurance premium had been hiked up by around 400%, from around $1,000 to just over $4,000 per year.”

“His story is by no means unique. Across California, almost one million homeowners have received notices of non renewal since 2015. Short of serious intervention, insurance experts, consumer advocates, and state agencies only expect this to continue.”

“It was just two years ago that Keller moved to the Golden Rule Mobile Village, a mobile home park for seniors that lies in a valley off US Route 101, about half-way between Willits and Ukiah. He put an offer on the home the first day he saw it and, using a mortgage, purchased it for $100,000. That was about a year after the Redwood Fire burned within a quarter mile of the Village.”

“Keller felt a bit of sticker shock when he saw the amount he would be paying for home insurance then, around $1,000, but brushed it aside. Of course, that pales in comparison to what his insurance company raised it to this spring, around $4,000, which Keller said is more than what some of his friends with houses worth close to half a million dollars pay for their home insurance.”

“As hotter, faster, larger, and more frequent wildfires make California a more dangerous place to live and own property in, homeowners, government agencies, and the insurance industry are all trying to figure out who should be responsible for the vastly increased risk of extremely destructive wildfires. No one wants to end up holding the bag.”

“‘At some level, insurers are overreacting,’ said Amy Bach, the executive director of a nonprofit that advises consumers on how to navigate the insurance market ‘Their reaction is out of proportion. But, to a certain degree, people can’t just point the finger at somebody else and say, ‘well I’m a victim of climate change and somebody has to do something about it.’ People who have made that choice to live in a heavily forested area, in some way have to bear the consequence of that decision…You’re gonna get more and more people asking the question,’ ‘Should I stay here?'”

        I did some digging around last night and found this (WARNING) PDF:

        https://www.dacis.com/budget/budget_pdf/FY20/RDTE/F/1203110F_294.pdf

        It’s dated Feb. 2019. If you word search Kraken (‘respond’ category), you’ll find it twice on page 4. This unit 305 person is in the affidavits in Powells lawsuit.

        1. This unit 305 person

          The 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, which is part of the 111th Military Intelligence Brigade, which Gen Flynn commanded.

          1. There is a Kraken, and it’s been activated. In light of the recent replacement of the swamp Sec. of Defense, by a soldier no less, it seems there is a showdown between the deep state and the federal government.

            ‘Mr. Christopher C. Miller is the Acting Secretary of Defense, appointed Nov. 9, 2020. Earlier this year, he Performed the Duties of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (ASD) for Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict. He also previously served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (DASD) for Special Operations and Combating Terrorism (SOCT). Mr. Miller was responsible for overseeing the employment of special operations forces in counterterrorism, Military Information Support Operations (MISO), Information Operations, unconventional warfare, irregular warfare, direct action, special reconnaissance, foreign internal defense, counter proliferation, sensitive special operations, and personnel recovery/hostage issues as specified by the Secretary of Defense.’ Mr. Miller was sworn in as the DASD for SOCT on Jan. 6, 2020.’

            ‘From March 2018 through December 2019, Mr. Miller served as the Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Counterterrorism and Transnational Threats at the National Security Council (NSC). In this position, Mr. Miller was responsible for strategic level policy making and implementation, and support to senior NSC and White House leadership.’

          2. showdown between the deep state and the federal government

            Or between the deep state and the military? With the FBI and DOJ AWOL, we’re seeing just how embedded in the federal government the deep state really is.

          3. The handwriting is on the wall.

            I mentioned before, if you or a family member have anything to do with this mess, you better step forward because the window is closing fast.

          4. Lt. General McInerney: US servicemen died defending election integrity

            Himalaya Australia
            7 hours ago

            Transcript from 42:00 to 47:05

            General:

            In all of these, we have not seen any footprints of the DOJ, of the the FBI nor the CIA on the friendly side. It has been on the deep state side.

            Host:

            Let me stop you there General. You just said something very interesting. You just said that who has just opened up the Kraken and you just describe what the “Kraken” was. We all know the term because of Sidney Powell using it. You just said what it is. Can you back up on that?

            General:

            Yes. Sidney got the term “Kraken” because it is the nickname of the 305th military intelligence battalion. And that has been her source along with other sources that Mary and I know about but we don’t want to talk about and so we’re getting different sources that are relaying this.

            But the important thing is they identified. Now get this. They identified, China, Iran and Russia as being involved in this and manipulating the vote.

            In addition, the US Special Forces command seizes a server farm and fight for Germany because they were sending these data from those five states or six states through the internet to Spain and into Frankfurt for Germany. Special operational force seized those, that facility so they have those servers. They know all these data and they are providing.

            Host:

            Did that go down without incident by the way? Did that seizure go down without incident?

            General:

            I heard it that it didn’t go down without incident. I haven’t been able to verify it. I want to be careful in that. It’s just coming out. But I understand my initial report is that there were US soldiers killed in that operation. Now, that was a CIA operation.

            So that’s a very worrisome thing. Did that occur because of what Mary and I and Alan were notifying on the Sunday and the Monday in different networks that this was going to happen, that they were using HAMMER and SCORECARD. And so they decided to bounce it overseas so the server farm that HAMMER and SCORECARD were using in United State couldn’t be used. I don’t know that.

            In any case, it makes it more vulnerable because when you start to moving that kind of data overseas other people look out.

            Host:

            You are saying there was a CIA facility and that was the server taken from by the special force was a CIA facility in Germany?

            General:

            That’s correct, Frankfurt Germany.

            Now, we have all this information. General Flynn of course people must realize, was a senior military intelligence officer in the US commands as a defense intelligence agency, he is a career intelligence officer he knows this backwards and forward. And from my experience in the cloud business. This was a trivial operation relatively speaking but the magnitude because so many people were involved, so many people like General Flynn mentioned, the Democrat person saw this are coming forward.

            But what we are doing? We are competing with the constitution and 14th of December date for the electoral college. And why? Because we have all these information and we know that not only did we have the deep state in the executive that President Trump had to fight, we also had the legislature, where we have Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Schumer all of those people were involved in this. They were involved in the Russian hoax, they involved in this coup d’etat. But we also had the judiciarer, Judge Sullivan who was General Flynn’s judge outed himself on this.

            And so you have the compromise there and that’s why the 305th, the ‘Krackens’ were targeted and selected I believe, because the president could trust them. That’s why Chris Miller who is now the Acting Secretary of Defense and a former special operations hero, that’s why (Chris Miller) is the Secretary of Defense.

            https://gnews.org/603684/

          5. Wouldn’t the hand recounts just expose the machine fraud? You have to have paper ballots to back up the electronic numbers. The voter fraud is where the real rot is. Those fake ballots are the issue.

          6. I really don’t know what’s going on. I’m still worried about the timing and the State legislatures. PA might be able to choose electors, not sure what AZ will do. GA seems like a lost cause. What about MI and WI? I don’t know. It might come down to Nevada.

          7. What about MI

            Former MI state senator, who presented at the AZ hearing, said that MI is still in play as far as he’s concerned.

          8. I really don’t know what’s going on.

            I’ve been following this the entire time, and this is my take:

            The fraudulent software was used to give the appearance of Biden winning the election running away starting the morning after the election. They backed that up with millions of phony ballot dumps – that’s what caused those parabolic spikes that Ben posted above.

            The recounts continue to count those phony ballots instead of dismissing them. Unless you can get rid of the phony ballots, the numbers will continue to support Biden. This doesn’t even take into consideration all of the Trump ballots which were destroyed, and the illegal vote switching done at some of the local levels. It’s fraud all around.

          9. I wanted to add that, as General Flynn said, this is the ongoing coup attempt by the deep state going back to before Trump was ever elected. They have been hell-bent on destroying his character and presidency to protect their graft rackets. It’s all about money and power. Trump is an outsider, and they saw their gravy train coming to an abrupt halt.

            They have exploited the stupidity of the American public to pull this off. Without such a braindead electorate there would be no way they could do this. It’s been a nonstop anti-Trump “orange man bad” propaganda war since he won the nomination.

            They struck gold when they found the “grab them by the pu**y” video. That did the most damage of anything. While he was able to win in spite of that, it served as rocket fuel for all of the Karens and freaks and lemmings out there who were just drooling for some dry tinder. Rather than appreciate the gift that Trump was insofar as putting the country back on the right track and improving everyone’s life, they fell right in line where the globalists and deep state wanted them, buying into the entire thing. Then the deep state just went to work on a phony impeachment sham and everything else, using the angry mobs as cover.

          10. Is someone monitoring and protecting the phones of state legislators? If there’s truly a failure to certify a few states and it brings Biden under 170, every kid, grandkid, dog, and cat is going to be threatened just like they were in Michigan.

          11. I see both Arizona and Wisconsin went ahead and certified their election results. It looks like plan all along was just to certify fraudulent results and move on with the stolen election as if nothing happened, calling the sitting President a kook while they make fun of him on the fake news media. Just WOW.

          12. Can’t those certifications be challenged in court? Other than that, it looks like the clock is going to hit 0:00 before the Kraken hail Mary leaves Powell’s hands.

            I feel like I’m living in Rome circa 425 A.D. We’re not yet to the point of being sacked, but it’s baked in the cake. There are no more elections, there’s no more court system, and soon there will be no money system. Life is going to get nasty, brutish, and short. And half the population is happy about it. All the preppers and some finance folks are telling me to buy land and plant a garden, but really, I don’t have it in me to do that. What to do?

        2. Qanon is looking more and more legit with each passing day. All these events really started with the Ukraine overthrow, guccifer hacking hillary and ed Snowden (cia) infiltrating the nsa.

          BTW, Mcinerny said Sandy hook was a false flag and the missing Malaysian airplane was used in another false flag where Russia supposedly shot down another maylasian airline a bit later. Both stunk. I’m guessing the big Vegas shooting at the start of the Trump presidency was another. That was another bizarre event that largely got memory holed. Remember the witness that disappeared and then showed up on Ellen? Last 6 years has been like living in a Tom Clancy or James bond novel

          1. Both stunk. I’m guessing the big Vegas shooting at the start of the Trump presidency was another.

            Me too, glad it didn’t work for what they wanted (I think). It’s amazing how fast something can be forgotten when that’s what the system wants.

          2. The Vegas shooting was likely an assassination attempt of Saudi Prince Bin Salman; there were pictures of him being escorted out of a hotel by armed guards. Shortly after that he took control of the kingdom and basically rounded up prince Alaweed and others and gave them an offer they couldnt refuse. Not clear if theyre even alive. Alaweed was likely CIA and funded HUMA, the harvard muslim outreach organization that probably was a CIA recruiting op and surprise surprise funded Obama while he was there – he sure wasnt doing any school work, theres not a single record of his efforts there. Alaweed was also a huge investor in many big tech firms and was possibly using them as means for the CIA to get around domestic surveillance limitations in place. Would explain why there are pictures of Alaweed and Jack Dorsey of twitter fame sufacing now. Twitter was likely developed early on as a CIA tool for agents to communicate as well as to help hype the various coups they foment around the world. For Trump to go on there was just rubbing it in their faces.

  1. ‘There are some real estate investments that in 2019 had an efficient market rate, and are currently selling for a fraction of that price’

    Oh dear…

    ‘He put an offer on the home the first day he saw it and, using a mortgage, purchased it for $100,000’

    Snapped it up, eh Ed? Well, it was cheaper than renting.

  2. ‘median price was the result of a 10% year-over-year drop — the fourth year in the past five that this exclusive Hamptons community’s median sale price decreased. In 2015, it dethroned Atherton from the top spot with a jaw-dropping $8.5 million median, a position it managed to hold onto in 2016, despite a 35% price drop’

    I’d like to point out this area is where UHS says red-hotcakes.

    1. Yes – two points.

      All the “rich” from NYC are supposed to be escaping to the Hamptons and snapping up real estate like hotcakes.

      However, mathematically speaking, a market that sells relatively few homes at uber high prices is going to have lots of fluctuations that don’t mean that much.

  3. ‘he and his wife lost a fortune on their house after the real estate bubble burst. And now he’s out of a job at Texas Station after the coronavirus pandemic shut off tourism’

    ‘His wife is still working, but amid enormous job losses in Las Vegas, he isn’t hunting for work. ‘There’s really nothing out there’

    Oh yeah, UHS says Vegas red-hotcakes. Sure.

    1. If this guy didn’t have bad luck, he would not have any luck at all.

      I know, I know – very bad decisions on his part and, I am sure, lots more to this story.

      1. The photo of the empty fountain on the strip is kinda bleak. There are people who want to bankrupt the country with this CCP virus freakout.

        The article is mostly about how LV tried and failed to diversify the economy. If you’ve ever driven out there, it’s purely a destination. Not on the way to or from anywhere. Better open up those casinos.

        1. It is really all they got besides two air bases in the far NE and NW of the city.

          But airmen really don’t get paid that much – it is a steady income but they ain’t buying no $500,000 homes.

  4. And this is for a mobile home.

    And all due to the insanity of fire and forest management in California.

    Amazing how these fires and consequences stop at the border.

    “Mark Davis Insurance, to clear things up, only to hear from a company representative that it was not an error at all. Keller’s insurance premium had been hiked up by around 400%, from around $1,000 to just over $4,000 per year.”

  5. Can you imagine being forced to fix something in one of your rentals, after being called by the renter to fix something, while he/she has not paid rent in 6+ months?

    “Rent is not coming in, but they’re still obligated to make repairs and their expenses haven’t gone away.”

    1. wow! Small landlords are truly screwed – yet the big guys will manage to bribe (err … negotiate) their way out of these regulations

      1. It sure seems like the PTB are doing everything they can to destroy anyone who owns a small business. I don’t have a lot of sympathy for small landlords, but we know that these properties will end up foreclosed and in the hands of oligarchs, who won’t have to obey rules.

    2. if I owned a place and the tenant wasn’t paying and then demanded repairs, I’d torch their car on the way out.

      The most important thing in life is to know oneself. That is why I’ll never be a landlord.

  6. And yet, obama recently purchased a $16 million beach vacation home…

    “But, to a certain degree, people can’t just point the finger at somebody else and say, ‘well I’m a victim of climate change and somebody has to do something about it.’ People who have made that choice to live in a heavily forested area, in some way have to bear the consequence of that decision…You’re gonna get more and more people asking the question,’ ‘Should I stay here?’”

    1. “People who have made that choice to live in a heavily forested area, in some way have to bear the consequence of that decision…”

      …à la Paradise, CA. However, the California Public Utilities Commission and PG&E will raise those rates to recover their losses.

  7. The absolute destruction of the only business in Las Vegas (tourism).

    Mass layoffs.

    Nothing out there to replace these jobs.

    Housing prices keep going higher…??????

    “His wife is still working, but amid enormous job losses in Las Vegas, he isn’t hunting for work. ‘There’s really nothing out there,’ Beckmann said.”

    1. I hope that he didn’t run out and buy a new pickup truck while he was getting $1000 a week in unemployment.

  8. New York Times — The Rich Kids Who Want to Tear Down Capitalism (11/27/20):

    http://archive.is/pWuAZ

    I don’t even want to quote from the article, it’s just a standard template of self-hating white people (at least one with non-gendered pronouns, can’t exclude that).

    Note that the article does not mention, not once, the role of the Federal Reserve in creating the alleged “inequality” they seek to address by pushing for state-mandated equalized outcomes, which in every attempt in history has unanimously resulted in starvation and genocide.

    1. The Rich Kids Who Want to Tear Down Capitalism

      But I’ll bet they expect to continue living in the lap of luxury while everyone else starves.

      1. In his autobiography, The Seven Story Mountain, Thomas Merton describes how rich kids in the 1930’s were no different than today. He came so disgusted by it all that he became a Trappist monk.

        1. rich kids in the 1930’s F. Scott Fitzgerald elegantly described the similar situation in the 1920s in his “The Great Gatsby”

      2. “they expect to continue living in the lap of luxury while everyone else starves”

        That’s basically of Reddit now.

        Awarding themselves karma points for worshiping at the altar of the Church of the Perpetual Lockdown, while getting all of their food delivered via “no contact” delivery.

        1. EDIT: all of Reddit.

          Article notes that FORTY TWO PERCENT of the adult ‘Murica population is now obese.

          I know someone who has lost 30 pounds in the past few months and is aiming to drop another 20. That’s not easy, people like that should be applauded for their effort.

          Sloth is considered on of the “deadly sins” for a reason.

          1. See also the Washington Post promoting the #Narrative that the obese (all of Reddit) should be prioritized for the CCP Flu vaccine.

            They are welcome to it, they can be the guinea pigs.

          2. Colorado, I agree. They can use up the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines on the guinea pigs. By the time they get to me, Astra-Zeneca and J&J will likely be available too.

      3. But I’ll bet they expect to continue living in the lap of luxury while everyone else starves.

        I think the extra stupid ones (most of them?) think that the money is already there for everyone to live like them, you just have to protest until someone stops being greedy and coughs it up. Then we can all live happily ever after. The Fed’s magic money printing every time they want something doesn’t help that perception at all.

        1. I was on a zoom meeting earlier. One thing I have noticed on recent zoom meetings is that those in the US wear shirts, while those in Europe all seem to wear hoodies or light jackets. I get the distinct impression that their flats are on the chilly side. Funny how all that onerous taxation they have doesn’t translate into abundant and affordable heating.

    2. So this is where money goes to die ? Young stupid not having a normal life. Eventually they will be old and stupid and none will care when they are broke.

  9. UPDATE: Judge REVERSES Order AGAIN, Georgia Officials Cannot Wipe/Reset Voting Machines

    November 30th 2020, 10:44 am

    State officials had planned to erase voting machine data and bring count to zero on November 30th

    Update 2: In yet another reversal, federal Judge Thomas Batten has again issued a revised order barring Georgia officials from wiping or resetting the state’s voting machines for up to 10 days in three counties: Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee.

    Read the THIRD order:

      1. Georgia Gov’t Lawyers Claim “Trade Secrets” of Voting Machines Must Be Kept

        by Kit Daniels
        November 30th 2020, 12:29 pm

        “Defendants’ counsel also argued that allowing such forensic inspections would pose substantial security and proprietary/trade secret risks to Defendants,” read the order by Judge Timothy Batten demanding that voting software and information should not be destroyed, erased or altered in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee Counties.

        Interestingly, The National Pulse pointed out the contract between embattled Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger and Dominion Voting Systems mentions the phrase “trade secrets” at least nine times.

        “The bizarre nature of government lawyers defending a private, foreign company’s ‘trade secrets’ instead of attempting to secure the vote of the American public will raise further questions about the company’s involvement in U.S. voting systems,” The National Pulse quipped.

        https://www.infowars.com/

        1. There should be no such thing as trade secrets when it comes to voting machines. I can’t think of a better candidate for open source. The trick is to not let anything else get compiled in undetected.

  10. Newt Gingrich: I Never Thought the Election Would Be This Corrupt

    November 30, 2020

    “Not only do you have crooked politicians running crooked elections, but you have crooked . . . Internet companies deliberately censoring and biasing,” Gingrich told Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM-N.Y.

    Unless this presidential election’s corruption is exposed, Republicans will face too many obstacles to winning a fair election in the future, Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis.

    “It’s not about Donald Trump,” Gingrich continued. “It’s about your right as an American citizen to assume that your vote is sacred – to assume that every legal vote will be counted, and that illegal votes will not be counted – because otherwise the illegal votes drowned out the legal votes and cheat the legal citizens of their right to representation.

    “I never thought it would be this corrupt.”

    Gingrich noted a “number of corporate lobbyists” in the prospective Biden administration “almost guarantees it may be the most corrupt administration since Harding in 1921.”

    “The Hunter Biden stuff is real,” he added. “The amount of money coming out of China, Russia and Ukraine is real. The degree to which all of that has been covered up is real. I think all of us have to recognize how serious a problem this is.”

    And now the two Jan. 5 Georgia Senate runoffs will be compromised, too, according to Gingrich.

    “Unless [Republicans] fix this, they’re going to have a hard time winning the election,” he concluded. “The Democrats have nominated two left-wingers who, in an honest election, could not possibly win an election. Therefore, the only hope the Democrats have is to find a way to steal it.

    “Given what they did in the presidential election, I think it’s a very great danger that they will find a way to steal it.”

    1. Once they were able to pull off a sham impeachment, I lost faith in the government. But when I look back I should have lost faith much sooner. When I consider the blatant fraud on Wall St. where nobody ever goes to jail, the scams that the FED has been running, all of the programs to prop up a fake economy which benefits the top 1%, the off-shoring of all the companies to Asia, the poisonous food coming back, the counterfeit goods sold on Amazon – by the world’s richest man -that are widely accepted, etc., were massive red flags that something was very, very wrong. There is no rule of law anymore.

  11. Rules for thee but not for me:

    “California Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a Monday press conference the state is considering a new stay-at-home order in purple-tier counties if cases continue to surge.

    “If these trends continue, we’re going to have to take much more dramatic, arguably drastic action,” Newsom said.

    With 51 of the state’s 58 counties in the most restrictive tier, 99% of the population could fall under a lockdown. The governor didn’t outline the details of the potential new order, but when the state issued one in March it required people to stay indoors except for essential services and exercise.”

    1. “If these trends continue, we’re going to have to take much more dramatic, arguably drastic action,” Newsom said.

      Translation: “We’re going to finish off as many small businesses as we can, so our globalist co*ksuc*er billionaire buddies gain even more market share. We’re going to destroy the entire economy with the exception of the lucky few.”

      1. I can’t imagine why there isn’t a veritable stampede out of the former golden state. They should change the state motto from “Eureka” to “I’m outta here!”

        1. I can’t imagine why there isn’t a veritable stampede out of the former golden state.

          I can. Even after the extra taxes I can still make more here than anywhere else. And I don’t have to deal with snow or humidity unless I want to. But they are 100% right that the relationship is purely transactional. And the RV is always fueled and carrying tire chains and antifa bear spray.

          1. Best if you do not have to leave the coach to deploy!

            Best if you don’t set it off inside the coach. “This Side Toward Enemy”. I don’t plan to get out to engage with anybody.

    Stablecoins ‘Pose Serious Risks’ to Financial Security, ECB’s Lagarde Says

    In the piece, Lagarde makes a bullish case for a digital euro while throwing shade at potential rivals such as cryptocurrencies and stablecoins – digital assets the values of which are pegged to fiat currencies.

    Lagarde said the main risk of cryptocurrencies is a feature that crypto proponents consider a plus, namely that cryptos rely purely on technology and that there is no identifiable issuer or claim. As a result, Lagarde said, cryptocurrencies suffer from a lack of liquidity, stability and trust, and therefore “do not fulfil all the functions of money.”

    Public may need immunity passport for ‘restaurants, bars, and cinemas’, says vaccine minister (11/30/20):

    “The government is looking at ways to enable businesses to establish whether customers have received a coronavirus vaccine before allowing them onto their premises, the vaccine minister has announced.

    Nadim Zahawi, the business minister who was appointed vaccine tsar over the weekend, told BBC Radio 4’s World at One: “We are looking at the technology, and of course a way of people being able to inform GP if they have been vaccinated.”

    “Restaurants, bars, cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system as they have done with the app,” he added.

    It comes after NHS Test and Trace boss Baroness Dido Harding over the weekend revealed plans to introduce immunity passports in a bid to return to normality.”

    https://www.cityam.com/public-may-need-immunity-passport-for-restaurants-bars-and-cinemas-says-vaccine-minister/

    A bid to return to normality?

    Those of us in the U.S. should understand this is what the globalist pigmen want for us.

    “Bidding.” Not being Born with rights as a U.S. citizen. Bidding, bowing, begging, on your f*cking knees

    There’s not much time left for a way to defeat these nationless borderless parasites peacefully…

    1. Public may need immunity passport for ‘restaurants, bars, and cinemas’, says vaccine minister (11/30/20):

      I’m sure the businesses are going to be thrilled as they lose even more of their customer base.

      Contact Tracing Update:

      We now have approximately 3,000 contact tracers on the ground.

      Nearly 70% of individuals refuse to cooperate with our contact tracers.

      This is not a witch hunt. This is about protecting you, your loved ones, and your community.

      Take the call.

      1. individuals refuse to cooperate

        I made it across PA and back over the past few days. Along the highways were flashing info signs reminding me of rules and quarantine requirements.

        1. The only thing sicker than that freak State Health Commissioner “Rachel” Levine pretending to be a woman is the monster that appointed her.

          Wolf has a problem. A big problem. But what can we expect from a state with two cities that hand picks politicians like Wolf, Biden, Rendell and Obama??

          You want outright bonafide fraud? PA is ground zero for it.

    3. So that’s why the drug companies didn’t do any research on whether the vaccine stops spread, instead of just stopping infection. If the vaccine stopped spread, then you could allow a lot more people to refuse the vaccine.

      Those companies were pretty piss-poor in determining effectiveness, likely by design. All they did was shoot up 60,000 people and then just wait around for some to get symptoms. This is a massive amount of lost data. They should have been testing these volunteers — quantitatively — every other day to trend the data and publish a thousand papers. Better yet, bring them in weekly for a quick EKG and blood testing. You never know what you may find which might help out the research on the next pandemic.

      I’d say that scientists should have KNOWN to do this, but based on what I’ve seen, I’m skeptical. I guess I must not be a very good scientist, because every time I tried to do it I was thrown into a meat grinder. I would have done better to practice my suction skills.

        1. From the article:

          “So, roughly 150 out 21,750 participants (less than 0.7 percent) became PCR positive in the control group and about one-tenth that number in the vaccine group became PCR positive.”

          So only 1/10 of the vaccine group showed up with measurable virus at all? If you’re not showing up on the PCR test, then you don’t have enough virus to spread. That’s a 90% effectiveness against spread. So why didn’t they say the vaccine prevents spread? Oh, right, they hate small business.

          1. There is no information about safety. None. Government agencies like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) appear to have two completely different standards for attributing deaths to covid-19 and attributing side effects to covid vaccines. If these vaccines are approved, as they likely will be, the first group to be vaccinated will be the beta testers. I am employed by a university-based medical center that is a referral center for the West Texas region. My colleagues include resident physicians and faculty physicians who work with covid patients on a daily basis. I have asked a number of my colleagues whether they will be first in line for the new vaccine. I have yet to hear any of my colleagues respond affirmatively. The reasons for hesitancy are that the uncertainties about safety exceed what they perceive to be a small benefit. In other words, my colleagues would prefer to take their chances with covid rather than beta test the vaccine. Many of my colleagues want to see the safety data after a year of use before getting vaccinated; these colleagues are concerned about possible autoimmune side effects that may not appear for months after vaccination.” (emphasis added)

          2. This same author damages his credibility with this:

            “Antibody response following covid-19 appears to be short lived. Based on what we know, the covid vaccine may require two shots every three to six months to be protective.”

            He says nothing about T-cell memory immunity or cross immunity with SARS-1.

        1. These are appearing on overpasses around the country.

          Happy nine month anniversary of “two weeks to flatten the curve.”

      1. They should have been testing these volunteers

        They know the PCR test is useless to diagnose individuals.

    4. Public may need immunity passport for ‘restaurants, bars, and cinemas’, says vaccine minister (11/30/20)

      If only we could just put it on our forehead or the back of our hand and just be done with it.

    Can History Predict the Future? – The Atlantic
    https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/12/can-history-predict-future/616993/

    A snip …

    “He has been warning for a decade that a few key social and political trends portend an ‘age of discord,’ civil unrest and carnage worse than most Americans have experienced. In 2010, he predicted that the unrest would get serious around 2020, and that it wouldn’t let up until those social and political trends reversed. Havoc at the level of the late 1960s and early ’70s is the best-case scenario; all-out civil war is the worst.

    “The fundamental problems, he says, are a dark triad of social maladies: a bloated elite class, with too few elite jobs to go around; declining living standards among the general population; and a government that can’t cover its financial positions.”

    1. One of Turchin’s most unwelcome conclusions is that complex societies arise through war. The effect of war is to reward communities that organize themselves to fight and survive, and it tends to wipe out ones that are simple and small-scale. “No one wants to accept that we live in the societies we do”—rich, complex ones with universities and museums and philosophy and art—“because of an ugly thing like war,” he said. But the data are clear: Darwinian processes select for complex socie­ties because they kill off simpler ones. The notion that democracy finds its strength in its essential goodness and moral improvement over its rival systems is likewise fanciful. Instead, democratic societies flourish because they have a memory of being nearly obliterated by an external enemy. They avoided extinction only through collective action, and the memory of that collective action makes democratic politics easier to conduct in the present, Turchin said. “There is a very close correlation between adopting democratic institutions and having to fight a war for survival.”

      Wonder how AI will affect things? An interesting read. Thanks!

      1. “There is a very close correlation between adopting democratic institutions and having to fight a war for survival.”

        Sounds like we’re about due for our next war for survival.

        1. Sounds like we’re about due for our next war for survival.

          Given the availability of nukes, perhaps no one will survive.

          1. Given the availability of nukes, perhaps no one will survive.

            That would require things to really get out of hand. I don’t expect nukes to be very important…the people who control them are trying to take exclusive ownership of the planet, not destroy it.

          2. the people who control them are trying to take exclusive ownership of the planet, not destroy it.

            True, but what about zealots?

          3. True, but what about zealots?

            In my mind that would be the “out of hand” factor. If the masters of the universe lose control to a zealot (gee, that’s never happened before) then anything could happen.

      1. The Corona stadium cop trying to stop a Corona infected ball from being thrown back on the playing field and listening to what the other people (although chumps attending a Social Justice NFL game} are saying.

    1. That was a patriotic act right there. The only thing the guy failed to do is drop the control freak with a accurately planted left hook.

    Firm That Owns Dominion Voting Systems Received $400 Million From Swiss Bank With Connection to Chinese Government Before Election

    Infowars
    December 1st 2020, 8:20 am

    An investigation into SEC filings has revealed that the firm which owns Dominion Voting Systems received $400 million dollars from a Swiss bank with close links to the Chinese government less than a month before the election.

    The investigation, conducted by Austin Security and Investigation Solutions, centers on Staple Street Capital, which acquired Dominion Voting Systems in 2018.

    Dominion Voting Systems operates voting machines in 28 states and has been accused by President Trump and his supporters of being involved in deleting millions of votes for Trump in addition to switching votes to Biden on election night.

    “On Oct 8, 2020, Staple Street Capital filed SEC Form D offerings and sales amount of $400,000,000 with the Sales Compensation Recipient identified as UBS Securities,” states the investigation, which also notes that another payment of $200,000,000 was received in December 2014.

    “UBS Securities is a swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” states the report.

    The overall owners of UBS Securities Co LTD are;

    – Beijing Guoxiang (33%)
    – UBS (24.99%)
    – Guangdong Comm. Group [zh] (14.01%)
    – China Guodian (14%)
    – COFCO Group (14%)

    Aside from UBS, the other four owners of UBS Securities are all Communist Chinese front groups.

  18. This is for you Newsom

    (Reuters) – Families of 15 public school students sued California on Monday, claiming the state has failed to provide equal education to poor and minority children during the pandemic.

    The impoverished students, who range from kindergarten to high school and were only identified by first name in court documents, were not provided devices and internet connections to attend online classes, according to the lawsuit, the first of its kind in the United States.

    The children attend schools in Oakland and Los Angeles, and many were described as Blacks and Latinos. The lawsuit also claims that schools did not meet academic and mental health support needs, English language barriers and the unmet needs of homeless students.

    1. Its always about race today…..instead of do you have a phone line you can easily get DSL all over america it wont support 4k video, but this is school work not a Hollywood movie class.

    2. We’re all in this together!

      Sending some of that Gretchen Whitmer kidnapper Boogaloo love your way, Gavin.

  19. If these Looters and invaders of the USA are going to rig elections to put in their treasonous Puppets, than how is this overturned?

    They control everything , and now they are using a fake pandimic to lock down the population and bring on their rule, which would be a nightmare.
    When they brought in the Commie Obamacare, that was enforced by the IRS, I knew it was only a matter of time that medical would be used to screw us.
    If you can’t even vote to throw the bums out because the elections are rigged, than how do you stop this overtaking of the GOVERNMENT by these treasonous forces.?
    Fake everything at this point so something evil can be ushered in.
    So, Klaus Schwab and his Goldfinger band of Hilter like masterminds are going to control the World.?
    Will a Revolution stop this takeover of America?

    Just based on what they have done so far, there is no humanity in them, therefore they are dangerous.
    I hope Trump prevails on election fraud, but if not, what else but a REVOLUTION to take back the Government from these Invaders?

    1. Will a Revolution stop this takeover of America?

      The tattoo parlors, weed and vape shops are busier than ever. Our populace is essentially stoned stupid.

    2. but if not, what else but a REVOLUTION to take back the Government from these Invaders?

      The invaders are counting on Joe Sixpack being apathetic. And I can see why. When the left gets agitated, there is burning, looting and murdering, and there are no consequences, if arrested they are promptly released without any charges. When the right gets agitated, a teenager blows away three thugs, gets arrested and will probably be sent to prison.

      If I were a Bolshevik, I would be grinning from ear to ear.
