The Mainstream Analogy With A School Of Fish Moving In Synchronicity

March 20, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

As I drove from east to west today across the state of New Mexico on our current trip, Mrs.J and I were talking. One of the subjects had to do with the political and ideological division in this country, and how there are incredible and powerful efforts underway to undermine the nationalist movement within the United States.

Be Independent Rather Than Labeled Left or Right

March 10, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

Something that has always bugged me… That is, how we are ‘forced’ and ‘herded’ into one of two ideals… LEFT or RIGHT.

We have been saddled here in the U.S. with a predominantly 2-party political system and I believe that it may be done this way for a reason.

Here’s the reason:

Why Have The Trump Supporters Stopped Prepping?

February 28, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I don’t mean to lump everyone on the ‘right'(ish) side of the political spectrum as Trump supporters, however I believe that this broad-brush paints the picture well enough.

I sense it, I see it, and there’s no doubt that many have stopped prepping since Trump won the presidential election. Certainly not all have stopped, though a percentage have stopped and an additional percentage have largely pulled back.

Apparently they are encouraged enough such that there is a belief that the problems, the risks, the dangers, are either gone or suppressed to the point of complacency that Trump will fix everything.

The mistake that they are making is that there is an epic battle going on, right now, between ‘the deep state’ (yes, it exists) and Trump himself and the ideals that he brings to the table. They are diametrically opposed to each-other. The deeply rooted globalist/socialist/communist (and the neocon) opposition versus a nationalist/populist movement is on fire, and this thing is just getting started…

When Inflation Causes Mortgage Rates To Spike…

February 16, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I couldn’t help but correlate what I recently read over on ZeroHedge to the reality that many people are ‘on the edge’ (paycheck to paycheck) with being able to pay their mortgage (“Mortgage Delinquencies Rise Most In 7 Years As Rates Spike”), indicative of the fragility that exists within the structure of our debt burgeoned system and society.

Evidently 30-year mortgage rates have increased from about 3.6% to around 4.4% during the past four months (inflation is coming) and the affects of corresponding higher mortgage payments (for some types of mortgages) have caused a sudden rise in delinquencies.

 
This is an indication of two things…

1. Inflation is coming (here?) 0.8% mortgage rate increase in four months.

2. Just how tight people’s budgets are – with literally zero wiggle room – such that they cannot afford to pay the uptick in mortgage payment. There’s no margin.

Is The Economic Melt-Up About To Melt-Down?

February 16, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

“STOCKS AROUND THE WORLD CONTINUE TO ADVANCE. The trend remains upward and although nearly every method we know of for measuring market sentiment is preposterously over-extended to the upside, and although nearly every method we know of to measure relative value is equally over-extended to the upside, the great game of investment musical chairs continues.”

“As happened in the dot.com Bubble of near the turn of this century, prices were egregiously, preposterously, stupendously, stupidly over-extended to the upside and then continued to become even more egregiously, preposterously, stupendously and stupidly over-extended for months and months and months.”

“The “Melt Up” has begun in earnest and it will stop when it stops and not a moment before.”

The Further A Society Drifts From The Truth…

February 3, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”
-George Orwell

What do you think of this quote from George Orwell?

Is this happening before our eyes? Is truth now considered ‘hate’ by some (or by many)?

If yes, then why is that?

The Soft Coup Against Trump May Accelerate Hard

January 17, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

It is a politically charged week for certain as we are truly living in historical times right at this very moment. Following yesterday’s heated discussion surrounding the question “Will Planned Chaos At Inauguration & US Streets Spiral Out Of Control?”, we will ask a new question “Will the furious actions to delegitimize Trump (an ongoing soft-coup) tailspin into a ‘hard coup’ if their present attempts fail”?
