April 6, 2018 Retrospective

Guido Bonatti, one of the great astrologers of antiquity, wrote that the most difficult thing to do in the world is to predict the future.

Indeed, it is a challenge.

On March 28, 2018 I posted a geocosmic forecast titled, ‘This Is No April Fools’ Day Joke’ and in it stated the existence of a threat to the USA beginning March 29 through April 5, 2018. My first interpretation of geocosmic forces upon the USA was that of an unannounced and unprovoked act of war against America, but due to other stellar influences subordinated that possible manifestation to that of the potential for a significant act of guerilla warfare (terrorism) against our nation.

I gave the date of April 4, 2018 as the date of strongest influence.

Well, war it was- with China -but manifested as a ‘trade war’. I suppose my many critics will consider that a miss, but honest men and women will see it as not exactly a bull’s eye, but at least on target. Besides, this is how World War One began – aristocratic English industrialists getting their heads handed to them by German manufacturers, set out to vilify and antagonize Germany into a military conflict through a trade war (and then subsequently relied upon the USA to bail them out of a fight they couldn’t win).

Naturally, the America-hating corporate media (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, etc.) has set out to characterize President Trump’s defense of America’s long-term economic survival through implementation of reasonable tariffs as some sort of inflammatory action against China, but that is certainly not the case. The first injury in this “war” was inflicted upon the USA by China through proxies, those proxies being former Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, George Walker Bush, Barrack Hussein Obama, and their accompanying administrations and congresses. It was Bush Sr. who at the end of his one-term Administration initially pushed hardest for China’s admittance into the WTO- an act of betrayal that was rejected by Congressional Republicans at that time but which Al Gore and the Democrats ultimately rescued. Then, eight years of Clinton corruption saw to it that through the WTO China would receive an outrageously unfair imbalance in trade policies that would eviscerate America’s domestic industry (as well as middle and working-class incomes). Only a fool would be surprised that China would ultimately take total advantage of the betrayal of the American people carried out by Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama and exploit America’s heretofore self-injurious trade policies.

President Trump’s recent imposition of reasonable tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum is a significant effort towards the elimination of trade policies that have been killing the American economy for 25 years.

Thus, China’s April 4, 2018 foreign trade policy actions are NOT retaliatory, but provocative. And instead of gracefully admitting to exploiting 25 years of unfair advantage and subsequent pillaging of the American economy and then renegotiating trade relations in an honest and honorable manner, China has stooped to the barbaric practices of English aristocratic industrialists from a century ago.

Indeed, as the stars foretold, April 4, 2018 did in fact bring an act of war against the United States of America by a dishonorable adversary- China -an act of war that was accompanied by elements of betrayal from within our own ranks.

Due to the stellar influences upon the USA on April 4, 2018 I am expecting this China-matter to remain an issue through the year. And if there is anyone in the nation who can bring this matter to the table and negotiate a fair and equitable arrangement for both parties (and in the process avoid military conflict) it is President Trump.

The past 18 months of blatant anti-Americanism and attempted obstruction of (and hatred towards) a duly elected American President by the American corporate media has been stomach-turning. But the corporate media’s obvious hatred of America’s middle and working classes goes back decades. Thus, their spin on the recent changes in America’s foreign trade policies are of no surprise. Besides, now it is just expected that what ever President Trump does to improve the lives of America’s middle and working classes (as well as any action he may take to ensure America’s national security) will be vilified by the wealthy elitist globalist-socialists who control the corporate media and employ the army of cons currently masquerading as the nation’s journalists.

Remember: any American man or woman who would defend foreign nations’ means of achieving prosperity over that of America’s means of achieving prosperity hates America and, in my opinion, is a Benedict Arnold.

Remain vigilant, America. There are traitors all around us.

HOLLYWOOD’S BETRAYAL

I’m not star struck. I am, however, political, and due to the powerful influence that Hollywood has upon the nation, I do keep an eye on what’s going on there. Wow. What a bunch of freaks. Also, having long ago made an attempt to break into Hollywood myself as a screen and television writer, I am painfully aware of the widespread cheating and outright theft of creative material that exists within Hollywood’s production side. With some exceptions, the behind-the-scenes world of America’s motion picture and television industries is one big bucket of swap scum. And while I have no experience in dealing with it, my instincts tell me that the very same is true with America’s music industry. But what can we expect? These people comprise the entertainment arm of the very same corporate media collective (CMC) that delivers to America a daily dose of demagogic manipulation of fact regarding current events, and then unabashedly calls it journalism. We now call their product “fake news.”

This term, “fake news” was actually coined by former President Obama’s team during the 2016 US Election out of frustration when the presumed DNC successor to Obama, Hillary Rodham-Clinton was rejected by the majority in America who could legally vote. This obvious frustration of no longer being able to manipulate the vote by skewed polls being reported by fraud-journalists and broadcast in hypnotic repetition led the Obama team to attack the nation’s rising true journalism (such as Breitbart) with this term “fake news” but which was, and in such a delicious irony, then turned 180-degrees back towards them – the “real fake news,” or corporate media collective – and perhaps most notably, by President Trump himself.

While the extremes of Hollywood’s bizarre and shameful reaction to the Trump Presidential victory was a surprise to most conservatives, it was not a surprise to me, as I was expecting to see some variation of exactly what has played out since November 8, 2016. I was expecting this reaction for two reasons. The first being that, and as the much maligned former Senator from Wisconsin, Joe McCarthy pointed out, Hollywood is filled with ardent communists, and to that I add, a whole lot of socialists, too. President Donald J. Trump is the antithesis of either a communist or a socialist, thus, the outcome of the election was the antithesis of their tender little hopes and dreams of a continued undermining of American sovereignty and furthering the cause of globalist-socialism. (These popular but self-destructive Utopian ideologies are an inclination that, and sadly so, exists in the overly-idealistic and unrealistic minds of so many creative and artistic people.) And what happens when members of this praise-hungry group’s every spoken word are not met with sycophantic exaltation or they do not get their way? A petulant frenzy.

But there is a second reason why I was expecting this sort of reaction from Hollywood, and it is also what I believe to be the root cause for the exacerbation of the condition brought about by the first reason, which, due to the almost inconceivably narcissistic nature of many screen and television actors and actresses, as well as musicians, should have burnt out on its own by now. This second reason is found in the motivations of the big money earners in Hollywood. Those for whom receiving a percentage of the profits of a single block-buster film equates to a king’s ransom.

I realize that while sometimes I take the long road in getting to my point, it usually pays off for the reader to follow me, so bear with me on this, please. And while this next point may seem a bit off topic, it is in fact relevant to the greater point, that being the suggestion that the CMC may harbor a propensity to manipulate, not only the outcome of American elections, but US trade relations and economic policy, as well.

It is amazing to me how self-glorifying and full of themselves are the various high-profile members of the CMC, especially those from Hollywood. Just think of all the televised awards programs. On and on they go about themselves. Amidst all their self-praise, on occasion, and usually in the process of some form of licking their own boots, their arrogance will lead them to inadvertently expose some unflattering aspect of themselves or their industry.

The airing of the CBS program 60 Minutes, coincidentally preceding the second Presidential Debate, on Sunday, October 9, 2016, was one of those occasions.

As a blogger analyzing and reporting on past, present and potential future US and world events, this program was a gold mine. Not that it was filled with the product of good journalism, but instead, valuable information in terms of the lengths the CMC was willing to go to in what could be regarded by some as an attempt to manipulate the outcome of a presidential election. This segment began with a story on the potential for America to one day face the prospect of nuclear war and America’s readiness, or lack thereof, to meet such a challenge, for which the summary conclusion was that the prospect was, “greater than one might think,” and that the nation’s readiness for war was intact. Now, either by pure coincidence or something more nefarious (and unless some CBS executive comes forward we will never know which it is) for weeks prior to the airing of this piece, the Clinton Campaign had been running television commercials carrying a message intended to instill a fear of the possibility of nuclear war, and that in the face of such a challenge, a Clinton presidency was the nation’s best choice. (Okay, now hold in your mind the image of Hillary, and in that infamous condescending tone, cackling, “Oh! Conspiracy theory!”)

But now to the purpose, it was the show’s later segment on the current relationship between China and the American movie industry that served to illuminate me on this matter of Hollywood’s hypocrisy and betrayal of America. This 60 Minutes segment revealed that, on average, and due to China’s vast population, the staggering profits that are made here in America on a block-buster movie are calculated by a multiplier of approximately 1.5 when the movie hits the box office in China. This CBS program also revealed that it has been only in recent years that Chinese sensors have been allowing Hollywood’s movies into the still strict communist nation, and that the reason the sensors have become lenient is due to the current trade deals that are making so many citizens of Communist China into millionaires. (Remember, every communist is a liar and a hypocrite!) I’ll reiterate: the wealth that would normally be circulating in the American economy, but, and due to self-injurious trade deals either promoted or supported by former Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, has found its way to China, has opened the door for Hollywood to slip its movies past Chinese sensors, and reap the big money earners in Hollywood a multiplier of approximately 1.5 on their motion picture productions.

This is the very same trade arrangement that since the middle 1990s so many pro-America economists warned would destroy the American working and middle-classes, and which President Donald J. Trump has threatened to renegotiate. If you’re still reading, then you’re most likely smart enough to comprehend by now what appears to be the real motivation behind Hollywood’s virulent anti-Trump movement.

Like former Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, who sequentially sold the American people down the Yangtze River for the benefit of the obviously America-hating manufacturing industry, so has now the obviously America-hating Hollywood big money earning sector sold the American people down the Yangtze River yet again, and now for the sake of greater profits upon their already immense movie profits. See? Every communist is a liar and a hypocrite.

And now, We the People suffer a daily barrage of condemnation and ridicule by the CMC, who in their vain efforts to shame those of us who support President Trump, are simultaneously working to inflame the passions of anti-American radicals (ANTIFA, etc.) living within the USA, and whether the CMC is intentionally trying to incite violent insurgency within the USA or not (which, I believe, if it were to be the case, would be a serious felony), it is at the least inadvertently accomplishing just that.

Just like the CMC’s demagogic propagandists, who while masquerading as journalists, push their “fake news” out to the American people every day in hopes of leading the USA towards continued self-injury, so has the CMC’s entertainment arm, Hollywood, proven its disloyalty to the American people through its willingness to rob the American working and middle classes of domestic industry all so that they can heap greater profits atop already immense profits.

Based upon these discoveries, one rational deduction would be to assume that Hollywood’s big money earners are doing all they can to both pressure and rally those beneath them, to keep the fires of division burning in America in hopes that the Trump Administration will be too otherwise encumbered to tackle the China trade arrangement. I’ve deduced this because, at this time, Hollywood’s smaller earners, in their having taken on the role of some sort of social goon squad, do in fact seem to be doing all they can to incite an atmosphere of obstruction towards the Trump Administration in the public’s eye. In reality, what they are obstructing is the return of good paying jobs – the kind that only come from thriving industry – back to their own parents, siblings, children, extended family, friends, neighbors and countrymen. How selfish.

In my opinion, Senator Joe McCarthy was no liar, and Hollywood truly is a bucket of commie swamp scum, and collectively, an enemy of the American people. And I’ll say it yet one more time: every communist is a liar and a hypocrite.

I am going to do my part as an American citizen and boycott, to the best of my ability, the product of Hollywood. And while I will not cut out of my life those around me who do not follow me in this effort, I will constantly remind them that patronizing the product of Hollywood, is, in my opinion, the enrichment of people who either hate America, or who could not care less about the USA’s welfare, as well as being the enrichment of Communist China’s new oligarchy, the latter being an un-American act, and ultimately serving to add to the great injuries the American people are already suffering.
