AN HOROSCOPIC OUTLOOK FOR NOVEMBER

From November 1 through 30, that cosmic troublemaker, Uranus, will be retrograde, and transiting from 01ºAries15’ through 00ºAries41’.  This planet-sign combination equates to heat and violence, and in these degrees, portends particular trouble for the the USA, and thus, unlocks the door (but not necessarily opening it) for earthquake and erratic weather, natural disasters such as flooding, as well as disasters involving manmade things, such as dams and power generating plants (including those that operate on uranium).  That same heat and violence equates to inflamed passions in the hearts and minds of men and women, and is most likely to involve Uranian-types, those being radical, rebellious, revolutionary minded people, often with a propensity towards violence, or at the least, towards destructiveness.  Ergo, there is a potential for significant acts of violence to take place in the USA, or perhaps in those places the USA occupies or has interests.  As the influence is Uranian, it is likely that, in the event of violence or rebellion, it will involve Uranian influences (a major cyber-attack, something involving uranium-based technologies, or it could be another event incited through the internet’s social-networking).

But beware!  The potential rebellious actions of Uranian-types, and any accompanying violence, or any natural disaster or manmade accident, is the least of what America needs to worry about through the month of November, 2011!

Transiting Pluto, now direct, will be making an opposition to the USA’s Jupiter, which rests in the country’s Seventh house (bringing unseen or secret forces involving the use/misuse of power, to the planet of law, and in the house of politics).  This stellar influence suggests a serious attack on America – a grand power-play by plutocrats, that is, the world’s wealthiest individuals, with their intended prize being greater access to, and control of, America’s lands and natural resources, as well as the theft of an even greater share of the product of the American people’s labor.  And the stars suggest that, the present, and quintessential Uranian episode, commonly referred to as Occupy Wall Street (or now ‘Occupy whatever’) will play perfectly into the plutocrats’ hands.  (And once again the world can credit the hopeless idiots on the Left for handing over even more power to the fiends and maniacs on the Right.)  The climax of this attack on America by plutocratic forces will coincide with other stellar influences indicating the presence of highly-polished orators, as well as a demagogue or two.  Readers may find an unpleasant repetition in my admonishments in this one particular area, but I am certain that these frequently appearing negative stellar influences relating to attacks on America through monetary policy are relative to exactly what America has been dealing with!  The USA has been – and is presently – at war!  This is a silent war during which the USA has been under relentless attack for decades by enemies from within and without, and in particular, sustaining attack and damage from enemies cloaked as allies.  Remember, there is no greater way to control the people of a nation – or to rob them of their substance – than through the manipulation of monetary policy!  Does anyone not understand that?  I’ll reiterate:  Manipulation of monetary policy is the most effective means to control (or even destroy) a nation and to rob its people of their country’s natural resources and the product of their labor.  And my repeatedly reporting my interpretations of stellar influences to suggest that America is under attack through manipulation of monetary policy coincides with the unrelenting attack America has been under, by those aforementioned enemies found from within and without, whose primary weapon against the USA has been the manipulation of monetary policy!  As it has become their well established modus operandi, I am 100% certain that, during this month, the highly-polished orators and demagogues whom have been employed by the plutocrats, will manipulate American monetary policy to their own designs by effectively manipulating the American people through an appeal to the emotions, and thus, in public discourse, they will do their best to instill in the hearts of Americans, greed, guilt and fear.

From November 1st through the 20th, hard aspects made by transiting planets to those points and planets with the USA’s chart representing the President and Executive Branch of government indicate that the White House will be under greater pressure than what is normal.  This pressure is most likely to be related to a need to manage exposure for malfeasance, as well as being pressure coming from very wealthy people and corporations seeking preferential treatment by the Executive Branch.

PREDICTIVE EXEGESIS

The reader should understand that, in my horoscopic outlook for the mundane (that which effects the whole world) or specifically for the USA, what I am interpreting is what is made possible, or perhaps, potential, by the various stellar influences.  The great astrologer Charles E.O. Carter, was famous for having said, “The stars incline, they do not compel.”  Good astrologers live by this.  There are, however, certain stellar conditions by which what is ‘possible’ or even ‘potential’ is also made probable.  For instance, in 2010 I began advising my readers, and adamantly so, that transiting Saturn’s position in the USA’s horoscope was likely (probable) to coincide with damage to the nation’s reputation, credibility and credit, and that is exactly what happened.  My adamancy on the matter was based largely upon the very strong influence of America’s Saturn return.  The stellar influences I was following elevated the issue from being what was ‘possible’ or ‘potential’ to what was ‘probable’.  But not all influences are so clear or powerful.  So for the record, unless I specifically state that a particular event is ‘probable’, then the influence is to be considered ‘possible’ or ‘potential’.

MUNDANE INFLUENCES (AFFECTING THE WHOLE WORLD)

Beginning November 1st and culminating on the 6th, Mars’ opposition to Neptune indicates the worsening of the global cold and influenza season.  (The USA’s already began in October.)

Beginning November 8th and culminating on the 12th and 13th, Mars quindecile to Uranus suggests an elevation of violence around the world, as well as accidental conditions involving aircraft and wheeled vehicles.

Beginning November 10th and culminating on the 12th and 13th, a minor influence, Sun’s semi-square to Pluto suggests assorted power plays, as well as the potential for violence of particularly brutal nature.

Beginning November 17th and culminating on the 20th, Sun’s square to Neptune will likely coincide with a peak in the global cold and influenza season.

Active November 22nd & 23rd, a separating trine from Mars to Pluto, combined with a separating trine from Sun to Uranus, indicates the potential for violent acts committed by brutal, revolutionary-types.

Beginning November 27 and culminating December 1st & 2nd, Suns’ square to Mars makes possible a large scale military event, and while action is a potentiality, it may, in the end, result in nothing more than saber rattling.  This period is also likely to coincide with an increase in the occurrence of cardiac arrest.

FUNDAMENTALS, THE STARS, AND THE BROAD ECONOMY: NOVEMBER, 2011

Readers have likely noticed that, in this issue, I did not publish a daily call on either the equity markets or the US$ in relation to other benchmark currencies.  This is due to the obvious fact that, after July, 2011 my trading model fell apart, and my daily predictions became irrelevant.  But I’ve “caught the bug” for this sort of work now, so I will certainly be pursuing the perfection of my short-term prognostications, but will not be again publishing the work until it is of use to the reader.

 

One would think that, for all the prattle emanating from government, Wall Street, media, etc., at least someone would mention the fact that tariffs and duties must be adjusted so as to protect domestic productivity and put the American people back to work.  This point serves as incontrovertible evidence as to the utter worthlessness of America’s labor unions (they are now being run either by idiots, or liars who’ve been paid off, or both).

Our nation of paper-pushers and slaves (the latter in reference to “service provider” (sic) “industries”) will see a little boost when Jupiter goes direct towards the end of December.  This benefic influence will last through June, 2012.  Afterwards, things may be quite different.

 

CURRENCIES

As far as my long-term economic outlook is concerned, I must take a moment to blow my own horn, as what I stated in late-2010 has certainly proven to be the case:  That the US Dollar has problems nearly irreversible, but would be safe due to the fact that the Euro has problems quite similar.

Obviously, and judging by the international spectacle a whining George Soros has made of himself – Soros being a man whom I have long-believed to be a top-lieutenant in service to those who hide in the shadows – demonstrates that the world’s plutocrats have much to lose in the failure of the Euro, and that means that the US Dollar is once again, the whole world’s primary reserve – still at least the temporary reserve of even the plutocrats.  Thus, while there is certain to be fluctuations – and even violently so – as long as the Euro is in trouble, the US Dollar is, to varying degrees, slightly safer.

I wish now that I had spent more time writing about the Swiss Franc, because had I done so, I would have more clearly driven home the point that, a currency that is controlled entirely by the government of the nation from which it is issued is a strong currency – and that a currency that is ‘managed’ by private interests operating within the issuing nation is, at least eventually, a weak currency.

Back to the Dollar – I believe that, after December, 2011 the wheels of inflation will run faster than they have ever done before, and somewhere around June, 2012, that inflation will become an undeniable force in the lives of everyone who earns, profits, buys or sells in Dollars.

 

PRECIOUS METALS

The downward movement in gold and silver should not be regarded as the end of an upward trend, but simply the long-awaited (and well overdue) correction to a market that has responded to world-wide fears of currency/central-banking failure.  Acquire on the dips, maintain an long-term perspective, and do not respond emotionally to market fluctuations.

 

REAL ESTATE

I stand by all that I have already reported on residential real estate.  There will be pockets of price increases and decreases around the country.  There are a few areas – those that once saw meteoric increases – that have still failed to see their ultimate lows.  There will be a transient nature to the US population as people try to make a living, and thus, in the areas that are able to offer employment, there will be some increases, or at the least, support for current prices.  Remember though that, the chambers of commerce in many communities have members who hold investments in residential real estate, and they may want to get out of those properties, and it may not be above them to skew figures regarding employment opportunities in their communities in order to lure in potential buyers.  Thus, once reality sets in regarding employment facts, reality will also set in regarding residential real estate values.

Commercial real estate, guilty of the crime of over-valuation, will eventually face the executioner.  Figuratively speaking, the trial is over, the judge’s verdict rendered, and the market is on its walk to the chopping block.  Exactly when the hooded man will bring down his axe is dependent upon the next severe downturn in commerce.

 

STOCKS

Short and sweet, equity shares are likely to continue to languish until the end of December, 2011.  I believe that, the market will then show some significant profits – so significant that, those in them market will not be able to pry themselves out of before this last little run exhausts itself in June, 2011.  Thus, I might suggest holding current positions, or taking this time between now and December’s end, to do a little bargain shopping, and then adjust one’s ego and emotions to taking whatever profits one may have by June, 2012 and moving them into something inflation-resistant.

 

ANTIQUES,  ART, COLLECTIBLES AND NUMISMATICS

I believe that the world’s wealthiest have been dumping ill-gotten gains into collectible automobiles.  The outrageous sums recently commanded for truly rare rides, and the present demand by buyers for privacy, convinces me so.  Numismatics, thought to be non-confiscable in the event of another government gold-grab, have also risen greatly due to supply versus demand.  Those who bought their numismatic coins 10-15 years ago are probably gloating by now.  The rising values of very high-end works of art also seem to have been the beneficiary of the of the world’s financial elite looking for a rock to hide their wealth under. But that makes this area a seller’s market at the present time.

 

AMERICA CATCHES A LEFT HOOK FROM ‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’

Allow yourself to imagine a humanoid figure standing before you.  This figure is devoid of sex, race or religion, but it represents a productive, law-abiding, civilized individual with respect for its neighbors’ inherent rights, product of labor and property.  This figure symbolizes “middle” America.

To the right of this humanoid figure is giant fist.  The fist to the figure’s right is also devoid of sex, race or religion, but it has a consciousness, and it represents corporatism, institutionalized usury, authoritarianism, as well as collectivism and globalism.  The giant fist to the right of the figure despises capitalism, and it loathes free enterprise, preferring instead to have all men and women employed by one of its corporate subsidiaries, believing that wage and debt slavery is for the masses, and profits only for the elite.  The fist recognizes the figure for its aforementioned qualities, and has reasoned that it can be of great use, so the fist now pummels the figure with the intention of beating it into submission so that it might make it its slave.

To the left of the humanoid figure is another giant fist, and it too, is devoid of sex, race or religion, and it also recognizes the value in the humanoid figure’s aforementioned qualities.  But the giant fist to the left of the figure represents government in the form of socialism, communism and totalitarianism, as well as representing idealism, environmental extremism, and social engineering.  Strangely enough, it, like the giant fist on the right, also represents collectivism and globalism.  The giant fist on the left also despises capitalism, and loathes the very thought of free enterprise, preferring instead to have all men and women employed by government, unless of course, employment just isn’t their thing.  In the mind of this fist, wage and tax slavery is for the masses, and wealth and privilege is to be withheld for only the elite.  Like the giant fist on the right, the giant fist on the left would like to make use of the humanoid figure, and though it finds the word “slavery” very distasteful, it is indeed a slave that the fist on the left wants to make of the figure.  So it too, pummels the figure, with the intention being to beat it into submission.

 

I have previously written that, among its many attributes, the planet Uranus represents rebellion, and most often, mindless rebellion – that is, rebellion for the sake of rebellion alone – as well as destruction for the sake of destruction alone.  A Uranian-type [of personality] is easily identified, as they cannot hide their rebellious nature, and while their rebellion will be justified by them with all sorts of idealistic and humanitarian platitudes, that rebellion will have behind it very little logic or rationale thought, that is, if it has any of those qualities at all.  The Uranian-type’s rebellion is based entirely upon the notion of breaking down what is regarded as ‘the old’ and replacing it with what is regarded as ‘the new’, even if parts, or all, of what is regarded as ‘the old’ are vital to their own survival, and parts, or all, of what is regarded as ‘the new’ has nothing ‘new’ about it at all.  Thus, the frivolity of the Uranian-type’s rebellion is easily led (or manipulated) by the latest trend or fashion.  Due to the Uranian-types’ willingness to destroy, this results in the Uranian form of change being quite effective, but most often, of no real value.  And in many cases, Uranian forms of change are quite costly to humanity, and can take decades, or even centuries, to recover from.

Most astrologers regard the planet Uranus as a malefic planet, id est: a planet with an evil influence.  This is because the effects that Uranus has, through its daily motions, on the Earth and the minds of men and women, is usually unexpected, mostly unpleasant, often deadly, occasionally cataclysmic, and frequently involving large masses of people.  In its effects upon society, Uranus is the key planet associated with socialism, and socialist movements.  (Actual communism is associated with both Uranus, and the fraud and deception of Neptune, the latter associated also with communal living.)  Uranus is also the planet associated with technology – the generation and harnessing of electricity, the telephone, powered-aviation, radio communications, nuclear fission, rocketry, the computer, the Internet, et al.  And while being a positive addition to the lives of men and women in so many ways, many of these radical Uranian technologies have been quite deadly.  I cite the electric chair, aerial bombardment, the atomic bomb, etc.  Perhaps the latest and best example of the potential deadly nature of Uranian technology is found in the phenomenon of what has been termed “flash mobs.”  Using the Internet’s (Uranian) social-networking (Uranian) resources, a group of people mass in one spot for the sole purpose of engaging in unprovoked acts of violence against victims chosen at random.  (For years, a constant source of aggravation for me has been the government and media’s  (as well as those who parrot such) frequently mistaking what actually constitutes guerilla action as “terrorism”.  The fact that these “flash mob” participants, no matter their ages, have not been classified as “domestic terrorists” – classified as domestic enemy combatants engaged in treasonous acts of war against the USA (and summarily executed) – leads me to believe that, either government and media do not understand how to define “terrorism”, or they are intentionally misusing the term.)  More widespread use of this Uranian social networking technology is found behind what has been termed “The Arab Spring” – named after the nineteenth century European uprising against monarchies and aristocracies (correlative to an earlier transit of Uranus through the sign of Aries!) and which, in the end, proved to be mostly ineffectual.  I believe the same will be found true of this Arab trend towards rebellion, too, as the region’s old oppressive and corrupt plutocracies and oligarchies will simply be replaced with new ones.

Most astrologers associate the planet Uranus with playing a large role in the experience of social change.  Here in America, we tend to look back upon our culture in terms of decades, but what I am seeing is that most of those things we might call trends or fads seem to run in 7-year cycles, which is correlative to the approximate transit of Uranus through one of the signs of the zodiac.  As history demonstrates, social change can be positive or negative.  The last time Uranus transited the sign of Aries was about 85 years ago.  Then the forms of social change brought to the unsuspecting world by emboldened Uranian-types was the rise of communism and nationalist socialism.  And while it is impossible to convince FDR-worshippers with any amount of facts on the matter, America’s socialist “New Deal” was certainly of a Uranian nature, and in the long-term, a highly destructive change for the USA.  The Uranian-types that rose to prominence during the previous transit of Uranus through the sign of Aries included Chang Kai-Shek, Benito Mussolini, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and Adolph Hitler.

Is it possible that, 85 years ago, if Earth’s mass of humanity had exercised restraint, separated themselves from ego and emotion, and thoroughly analyzed the long-term effects of communism, nationalist socialism, and America’s “New Deal”, there would have been a rejection of these destructive forms of social change?  In other words, had ‘cooler heads’ prevailed, and different directions been taken, could, in the years that followed, those events that led to World War II, have been avoided?  I believe the answer to the question is “yes,” but also recognize that, under the circumstances of that day, during that critical point when the incendiary effect of the Uranus transit of Aries was stoking the fires of rebellion in the hearts of all but the most Saturnal men and women, ‘cool heads’ – clear and rational thought, and the taking of time for careful analysis – was made nearly an impossibility.  In those days, from Europe to Asia, millions of men and women had already been subjected to centuries of brutality and oppression by monarchy (and its hereditary right) as well as the parasitism of institutionalized usury, and in many instances, hard lives consisting of little more than fruitless labor.

In that day, a significant portion of humanity fell under the influence of Uranus in Aries, and people were essentially saying, “anything other than the way it has been.”

And the moment men and women succumb to Uranian influences, the most radical Uranian-types [of personalities] descend to nurture any signs of rebellion, exploit any discontent, envy or resentment, and to lead the disgruntled to wreak havoc upon the social substratum about them, even if it brings them greater injury or loss.  To clarify, even non-Uranian-types can fall under the influence of Uranus and become, at least temporarily, a quasi-Uranian-type.  Those people who are highly subject to fads and fashion are most vulnerable.  And they are often the same people with the mindset in which, in the face of every tragedy, uncomfortable societal change or mass incident, demand for some radical measure to be taken by government, even if the measure is of no effect or consequence to the matter at hand, worthless, or even more destructive.

But what may be most critical of all is that, the most important thing the Uranian-type fails to take into consideration is, in the process of creating this Uranian pandemonium, those whose personality reflects the attributes of the planet Saturn, those who we call the Saturnal-types, stand by, observing, often hiding in the shadows, waiting to seize opportunity for the control over society that the Uranians inevitably hand over to them.  True Saturnal-types do in fact comprise a portion of the ‘cooler heads’ that stand by during an Uranian ‘episode.’  They are recognizable as the mature, stern, austere advocates of tradition (but tradition for the sake of tradition alone – whether the tradition is a good one or a bad one) they are often the very religious (as opposed to the spiritual).  But most of all they are the authorities – the authoritarian, force of stabilization that steps in and seizes control when the Uranians have either exhausted or destroyed themselves in the process of creating havoc.  And this is a perfect situation for them, because Saturnal-types are inherently power-mad – but not power-mad in the same way as a Plutonian-type, that is, one who wins the loyalties of his or her followers by commanding, or appealing to, the emotions of his or her followers.  Nor are they [Saturnal-types] like a Neptunian-type, that is, one who seizes power through fraud, deception and mesmerization (and which these types do much to their own joy and/or self-righteous self-delusion) – as a leader of a cult, or similar.  Nor does Saturnal authority have anything to do with what is referred to as being Jovial – that is, taking on the benevolent qualities of Jupiter.  Instead, Saturnal-types justify their power-madness through misuse and intentional misinterpretation of law and regulation.  They are an authoritarian aristocracy, and epitomize the maxim ‘any excuse will serve a tyrant’, because they are tyrants, or at the least, aspire to be tyrants.  They are ardent supporters of slavery – not chattel slavery, at least not in this present day – but advocates of wage, debt and tax slavery.  Saturnal-types are users, and through usury, and usury schemes, thrive on placing the yoke of debt-slavery upon all whom they can.  Saturnal-types are found as leaders of both the political Right, and the political Left. In this present day, on the Right, there is no more clearly defined example of the Saturnal archetype found than among the world’s corporatists, and on the Left, that same archetype is embodied by government’s tax-and-spend liberals/progressives, bent on engaging in various forms of social engineering.

Saturnal-types see Uranian-types as nothing more than mindless fools, or as children, perhaps, engaged in one petulant frenzy or another, and regard every Uranian episode as an opportunity to later swoop in and gain even greater power and control than they possessed over the masses beforehand.  “Buy when there is blood in the streets,” is the famous quote regarding the opportunistic attitude of quintessential Saturnal-type, and corporatist, 18th century English banker Anschel Mayer Rothschilde.  And in this contest of rebellion versus opportunism, while the Uranian-types will have spared no act of violence in an attempt to break down the old order, the Saturnal-types spare no act of cruelty or oppression to restore that old order.  A “peace protest” turned violent is a perfect example of an Uranian episode.  This is why hippies (Uranian-types) for instance, while festooned in ‘peace signs’ and ‘love beads,’ will engage in behavior so provocative that they frequently find themselves being clubbed over the head – and often justifiably so – by the authorities (Saturnal-types).  Ultimately, in the struggle for dominance, the Uranian-types exhaust their energies (at least temporarily) and the Saturnal-types gain ground, or prevail outright.

The Occupy Wall Street phenomenon is, and unquestionably so, an Uranian episode.

An obvious affront to conscious corporatists, as well as those whom erroneously believe themselves to be capitalists, but whom are, in fact, corporatists, I am regarding the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon as the West’s correlation to what has been regarded as the “Arab Spring”.  The Occupy Wall Street phenomenon is also correlative to the highly disruptive influence observed upon the USA when Uranus transits 0º – 3º Aries.

I define Occupy Wall Street as an Uranian episode, due, and firstly, to the participants’ lack of understanding of that which they are protesting.  Foremost in this regard, Occupy Wall Street expresses an overt, overall anti-capitalist, anti-free-enterprise position, hidden behind slogans that make reference to the evils of corporate greed.  Occupy Wall Street is, at least in some large part, comprised of individuals who do not know the difference between corporatism and capitalism, and in a typically Uranian manner, they have directed their rebellion at whatever target has become fashionable or trendy to attack.  And in this case, it has become both a trend and fashionable to target capitalism.

I attribute Occupy Wall Street as an Uranian episode, due secondly, to the fact that among their ranks is a powerful presence of ardent socialists, as well as an overt and overall sentiment in support of socialism.  This is a highly Uranian attribute.  The Occupy Wall Street participants’ growing reputation as an “unwashed mass” unwilling to clean up after itself at its points of gathering is very typical of the socialist mindset.  Also, the support of certain Hollywood and other liberal and (sic) progressive celebrities – those who love the idea of altruism but still retain their own massive fortunes – is another indicator of the presence of the socialist mindset.

IS ‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’ ALL WRONG?

Is the Occupy Wall Street crowd all wrong?  I do not believe so.  But they are certainly severely  misguided, and as a result, their activity serves only to cause additional damage to America. Though, I must confess that I am amused at the thought of scumbag anti-capitalist corporatists being harassed at their homes by angry mobs, and in this regard, I would say that the Occupy Wall Street crowd has certainly targeted at least some of the correct individuals responsible for America’s economic woes!  But to challenge these corporatists with public protest, while classifying them as capitalists – as the Occupy Wall Street crowd does – is akin to demanding a guilty murderer be brought to justice while incessantly referring to the murderer by his victim’s name.  I doubt that among the ranks of those participating in the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon there are many individuals who know the difference between corporatism and capitalism (actually, there may none at all!).  And this misguidedness is why the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon will absolutely fail in having any positive effect whatsoever upon America’s social conditions.  And that same collective lack of understanding which they suffer from will most assuredly be exploited by the very individuals whose abuse of authority and monetary policy has resulted in the conditions they protest.

Until the Occupy Wall Street crowd has developed a clear understanding of the differences between corporatism and capitalism, and the participants overtly disavow the inherently anti-American nature of socialism, they would do America a much greater service simply by staying home.

 

JUST IN: AMERICA HAS MISTAKEN ‘ACTIVITY’ FOR ‘PRODUCTIVITY’

On occasion, I have been guilty of mistaking what is rightly regarded as ‘activity’, that is, a state wherein things are happening or being done, for ‘productivity’, the latter being the quality of actually producing something tangible, or actually accomplishing something of value.  Recognition of the difference between the two qualities has proven to be invaluable to me, and my own cognizance on this matter is owed to a friend who was renown for frequently, and not often gently, pointing out the difference of the two qualities whenever he saw them being confused.  In observation of the present conditions of America, it is clear to me that I am not the only person in the USA who has been subject to making this same mistake.  Thus, through the aforesaid, I have returned to my compatriots the favor that was once done for me.  Alas, my concern is that I may be doing this too late, as this mistaking of ‘activity’ for ‘productivity’ is now made so frequently by the USA’s elected officeholders, I am beginning to believe that the very concept of ‘productivity’ has evaporated from the minds of anyone who presently holds any office in the American government.  Moreover, the absence of any challenge by the electorate to the government’s failure to recognize the difference between ‘activity’ and ‘productivity’ – or the importance of the latter – serves as an indicator to the likelihood that the nation itself has largely lost an understanding of the quality of ‘productivity,’ as well.

Nonetheless, the matter of America’s mistaking ‘activity’ for productivity must be addressed, particularly in light of President Obama’s much resisted plans for “creating jobs.”  Firstly, it must be said that, while government is in fact capable of “creating jobs,” government is in incapable of creating jobs without creating an equal amount of debt – debt upon which there is usury, and which will ultimately be repaid in a sum much greater than the original debt.  Is there still anyone among us that does not see the damage done to the USA through the country’s current levels of debt?  (Let alone the addition of another half-trillion-dollars to the principal of what is already owed!)  In the absence of reasonable tariffs and duties on imported goods, as well as excise on certain exported goods (especially technology) no form of public works employment, or infrastructure rebuilding jobs, can be funded without acquiring new and credit-destroying, dollar-diluting levels of debt, or through counterproductive increased taxation on whatever domestic productivity is left in the nation at present.

Secondly, what Congress and President Obama seem to regard as “jobs” is that which is defined as ‘activity’ and which has nothing to do with productivity.  Because it furthers the socialist cause to have people only occupied with some worthless pursuit to justify their being handed a check, there is no challenge at all coming from the political Left on this matter.  Because it furthers the corporatist cause to strangle free enterprise, any challenge coming from the political Right has been superficial, and focused only on Obama’s plan for spending his way into job creation.

To summarize:  The solution to America’s unemployment problem is not found in the government “creating jobs,” but in government’s ceasing to destroy domestic productivity.

Yeah, you read correctly, my position is that government has destroyed America’s productivity, and subsequent to destroying American productivity, government destroyed America’s prosperity.  My position on the matter is upheld by the following chronology, in which there is found statistical evidence:

Towards the end of World War II, and shortly after its conclusion, America’s elected officials volunteered the American people to sacrifice a great deal of domestic productivity to aid in the rebuilding of Europe and Japan.  This was accomplished through membership in the General Agreement for Tariffs and Trade (GATT).  American productivity declined.  In the 1960s, American membership in the United Nations led to participation in the UNCTA trade agreement, which forced greater sacrifice upon the American people, for the ostensible purpose of elevating poor countries through their increased domestic productivity.  Again, American productivity declined.  Later, in the 1970s, and through the Council on Foreign Relations’ offshoot, the Trilateralist Commission, further attacks on American productivity were accomplished through memberships in the IMF and World Bank, while the Trilateralist Commission enlisted members in government, law, academia and business, to begin an attack on capitalism, American small business and entrepreneurs.  This began a massive conversion of the American economy from capitalism to corporatism.  And yet one more time, American productivity declined, this time, sharply.  Along the way in the process of conversion from capitalism to corporatism, there was one false ideology after another spoon fed to the American public, and here is where the Trilateralist Commission’s members in media came into play.  So powerful a hypnotic effect did the endless drumbeat of their rhetoric contain, that soon, anyone who questioned the so-called good intentions of the Trilateralist Commission, or who was too smart to buy into their lies, would be labeled something akin to a kook, or worse, a “conspiracy theorist.” And all the while, American productivity continued to decline, and now rapidly so.  Years later, America was further sabotaged through the General System of Preferences (GSP) a program which allows over 120 countries to import their goods into America while paying no duties.  Does it comes as a surprise that, once again, American productivity declined?  Following the GSP was NAFTA.  And though NAFTA was predicted by those with a properly functioning brain that many American jobs would be lost, key figures in government and media assured the American public that the end result would be beneficial to America.  In the end, the Mexican aristocracy, and the whole country of Canada benefitted greatly.  And, in what was now true to form, American productivity again sharply declined.  The USA’s membership in the World Trade Organization (a frightening corporatist global octopus which fundamentally supersedes GATT) essentially subverted American sovereignty, destroyed any last capitalist stronghold, and left the American people to face a life of wage, tax and debt slavery, while no longer serving to even ostensibly develop the economies of poor, emerging nations, while firmly establishing a world dominated by a corporatist economic system, and rule by plutocracy.  Need I mention that, once again, American productivity has again declined?

Now late in year 2011, when American household income has plummeted, the cost to survive (and never mind thrive) in America has skyrocketed, and even the creditworthiness of the nation is in question, the US is forming new self-injurious trade agreements with foreign nations, while renewing old self-injurious trade agreements with foreign nations.  Is there anyone at this point that does not yet see the connection between prosperity and productivity?  Is there anyone still, who does not understand that, a nation of service providers, id est: slaves, will reap only the bounty of a slave?  Is there anyone who does not understand that, a nation of paper-pushers will ultimately be left with only that – a mountain of worthless paper to push?

The matter is really quite elementary.  What created 18th century England’s fantastic wealth was domestic productivity.  What caused England’s fantastic wealth to diminish was a loss of domestic productivity.  What was responsible for post-World War II Germany and Japan’s rebounds from devastation to world economic powers was domestic productivity.  What had created America’s theretofore unimaginable wealth was domestic productivity.  What has caused America’s theretofore unimaginable wealth to diminish has been a lack of domestic productivity!

Resolving the confusion lies in several critical points, the first being the understanding of the difference between ‘activity’ and ‘productivity’, and the inextricable relationship between the latter and prosperity.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

The tidal wave of irrational fears regarding the environment that has swamped America through the ensuing environmental activism, should be regarded as an ingenious component within the overall strategy of attack on America’s capitalist economy.  A persistent rumor has circulated that some of the most rabid environmental activists have had their activities financed through the family trusts of the very corporatists who have been the biggest environmental abusers, and who have had the most to gain by using environmentalism as a means to attack American domestic industry so as to nurture the growth of their foreign investments.  The dubious science behind the ‘green movement’, and the need to rely upon the use of fear and guilt to manipulate America, should serve as sufficient evidence that the voluntary part of America’s relinquishing its industrial might came due to a massive – but highly effective – con job.  Entire generations now fully believe the standard ‘climate change’ hoax to be reality.  So far, the loss of America’s industrial might has been of no measurable benefit to the environment that I am aware of, and benefitted only those embittered, envious, anti-American opportunists hiding in the shadows, along with the army of con artists whom they employ.

Lastly, consider that America has now been subjected to years of psychological warfare on yet another front.  And while so far quite effective in misleading the people of the USA, it is essential to remember that it is not the American peoples’ job to fix or coddle the world, no matter how much guilt and fear is hurled at America by the collectivist-globalists’ henchmen employed in media.  America is not the kindergarten cop to the world.  It is not the American peoples’ obligation to lose their own jobs and homes so that people in a foreign land can have jobs and homes.  But there are those among us – weak-willed idealists whom have obligated the rest of us without our permission to taking part in their madness – those bent on “saving the world” and whom have fallen into the corporatist trap of sacrificing America’s domestic productivity for building up the productivity of the outer world.  And they have done, and will continue to do, their damnedest to drag us all into their conscience-easing madness with them.  Ironically, while these idealistic boobs are feeling as though they have made some great gesture of self-sacrifice to the world, the corporatist plutocrats have been laughing at America’s apathy towards self-injury, and have found great opportunity in the idiocy of it all.

THE FOUR RESTORATIVE MEASURES

There is but one way, and one way only, to fix America’s economy, and that is through increased domestic productivity.  Increased domestic productivity can be achieved only through policies that encourage, reestablish, nurture and protect domestic productivity.  Pure capitalism, that is, free enterprise, is the most effective means to achieve and maintain thriving domestic productivity, and its subsequent prosperity.  American can only achieve a purely capitalistic economy, and a state of free enterprise, by returning to the economic structure that created these things in the first place.  Thus I reiterate from the previous issue of Judicium Astrologica, the Four Restorative Measures:

1. Tariffs on imported goods must be raised so as to compensate for foreign government subsidies to their own exports, to compete with foreign slave-labor and slave-labor wages, and to reestablish, nurture and protect American industry.

2. The Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches of the US government must cease in their giving advantage and preference to multi-national corporations over individual American citizens.  This is effected through an immediate withdrawal of the USA from GSP, NAFTA and WTO, IMF, and World Bank (as well as any other self-injurious trade agreement).

3. Congress must cancel the un-Constitutional-in-nature (and thus, illegal) charter with the privately owned, self-serving Federal Reserve Bank, and reestablish a national bank as sole creator of currency, sole setter of interest rates, and commercial lender of last resort.

4. Government spending must be eliminated for anything not directly related to the nation’s defense, or to the investment in infrastructure and technology.
