  • ‘CONSPIRACY’ THEORIES KEEP INCREASING in response to today’s radical & inconsistent federal administration. Millions are utilizing social media to support extreme views ranging from “the Covid pandemic being a dark plot engineered by Bill Gates to control population, to the Floyd killing being a deep state psyop, mass shootings being ‘false flag’ operations, California wildfires being sparked by space lasers, online retailer Wayfair trafficking children inside cabinets, that Democratic politicians & Hollywood celebrities molest & murder children, and that a sinister cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is running the country… Conspiracies prey on people’s fears (of the coronavirus, civil unrest, government overreach, a stolen election) …and have resulted in voters choosing to ignore blatant mongering or writing it off as protected political speech… with Conspiracy theorists winning local elections – from mayors to city-council members to school-board trustees – and direct authority over decisions in their communities, in positions that offer a measure of credibility to delusional beliefs, and the power to shape policies that directly affect the lives of millions of Americans.”  [TIME – 4/26/21]
  • GEOPOLITICAL DYNAMICS ARE FAST CHANGING. According to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the CIA Director, “the unparalleled priority for our intelligence community is the Chinese Regime, which is pushing to revise global norms, to challenge the U.S. role in global affairs, and posing the leading threat to national security… The just released ‘Global Threat Assessment’ notes: (1) Substantial cyber capabilities to cause disruptions to critical infrastructure – like last year’s global hack of Microsoft email software which hit government agencies, businesses & customers; (2) 5G and semiconductor competition in technology; (3) Increasing capability to shoot satellites out of the sky with missiles or disable them with lasers; (4) Lack of transparency or providing of data as to still questionable origin & spread of the Covid coronavirus; (5) Deep, wide, and persistent tools to influence operations of businesses, academic institutions, and governments at all levels including elections… China is now a near-peer competitor.”  [EPOCH TIMES – 8/14/21]
  • THE ‘TROJAN HORSE’ LEGEND is about a hollow wooden-sculpted horse, secretly filled with Greek soldiers to infiltrate the Walls of Troy, then burst out to open the gates for their army to besiege, battle & defeat the Romans. “Simply put, based on the liberal hordes which have taken over the new federal Administration with extreme ideology & actions, wasn’t this a campaign rooted in rhetoric emphasizing moderation, compromise and unity, but in reality a thin façade used to usher in an ultra-progressive agenda through the back door – a Trojan horse masking a sweeping liberal agenda?” [WASHINGTON EXAMINER – 4/10/21]
  • ODDS & ENDS: (a) UBER riders are stuck waiting for a car in some cities over an hour, as former drivers have opted for pandemic-extended unemployment benefits, despite UBER pay increases up to 75% and, in California, allowing drivers to set their own rates by up to five times; (b) Hundreds of thousands of discarded surgical masks & latex gloves are now littering beaches tangling up birds, eaten by wildlife, and polluting the oceans with microfiber, reports AP News;  (c) Over 16,000 immigrant children & teens are now being housed in ten ‘emergency’ shelters operated by HHS at a cost of some $60 Million weekly, reports Washington Post.
  • THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK: “To err is human; to blame it on someone else shows Management or Political potential.”

         “CONUNDRUMS OF SOCIALISM IN THE U.S.A.:  America is capitalist a   nd greedy – while half the population is subsidized, yet think they are victims.  Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.  They have luxuries and material things that people in other countries only dream about, yet want America to be more like those other countries (including the ones they left)…  All these lead to a (media contrived) perception and direction of our current government and cultural environment:  (1) We are advised to NOT judge ALL of any group by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics; (2) While we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money, we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money – and it’s irrelevant that the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t; then, (3)  Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for military and cutting our army, but increasing payments & benefits to illegal aliens. ‘If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools’ (Plato)” [INTERNET ANON]
