Liberal Bias

It appears to me that Liberalism is inversely related to the distance people have from the problem…

Think about it.

Just think in terms of this Refugee Crisis that we are undergoing now.

All the Hollywood elites and the Democratic establishment are crying about the plight of the Refugees but you would never see any destitute Syrian refugees in the streets of BelAir or Malibu and certainly none in the Hamptons and Connecticut suburbs where the Big Whigs of the Democratic party like the Clintons, live and play.

Ever Wonder Why?

Indeed liberalism is greatest the further away one feels from the problem and the least the problem affects this person directly.

And while the Liberal Democrats who are mainly atheists, are crying crocodilians tears and are going out wearing pussy hats to demonstrate against the United States Immigration policies and are clamoring about this grave Human Rights issue — it is left up to the Christian Right and the real Compassionate adults, the Christians to actually help the arriving refugees and also to raise funds and volunteer to help the Syrians across the great migration journey towards exile and perhaps safety.

Make a note of it.

I’ve been working with several groups that I fund, on helping Refugees in the Eastern Mediterranean world since 2001, and have never received any help from any Liberal groups.

Never.

Nor have I had any non Religious volunteers join up the Charitable work that we do.

In contrast we had many Christians of all faiths, Jewish folk, Buddhists, Muslims, and even pagans — but we never had any Liberal Democrat Atheists join our life saving mission.

Wonder why that might be..

Why?

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

And although we never present ourselves as a religious group of any kind — we’ve always had young people from conservative religious upbringings swell the ranks of our volunteers through the simple belief and conviction that all good deeds are answered on Earth as in Heaven.

And we are happily trudging along putting one foot infant of another and helping all those in need. We do not discriminate but we choose to help all those Souls that come alive out of the ruins of Syria — a simple country — that the NeoCon liberal Globalist Democratic elite of this country has destroyed.

And up until the day when the Hollywood elites, like my friend Amal Clooney and George, start inviting refugees to live inside their mansions — and call me over to document their living conditions — I shall not believe a word these hypocrites are saying.

After all they are trained actors, to tell BS in front of a camera. Don’t believe a word they are saying because now they are mouthing more BS that is written on the script they are reading, for the role they are paid to play.

As for me — I put my money where my mouth is.

And if you want — please do come and give us a hand.

We need plenty of help.

And as for PHI — indeed People’s Health International, does God’s work and us Humans can only help carry on…

God Bless.

Travails and Tribulations Always Come At The Beginning of Spring

“Beware the Ides of March”

–William Shakespeare

As we enter the month of March, or otherwise known as Mars in the Roman calendar — we ought to remember that this time of year there is an abundance of weirdness amongst the people rising from a deep wintry period of darkness and meanness.

People rising up from the awful nightmare of annual “death” start turning their eyes towards the light that is sure to come any day now.

“Beware the Ides of March”: Yet as history places this in the mouth of the soothsayer warning Julius Caesar of the upcoming attack in the Senate — he neglects to pay attention, or to keep his guard about him, or to even avoid heading to the counsel meeting of the Senate…

As a matter of fact, Julius Caesar dismissed the warnings as haughty men often do… although in the days leading up to the assassination, Caesar was told by many of the visible conspiracies amongst his Senators and jealous powerful competitors for political supremacy.

Politics in the days of the height of the Republic caused so much divisions and rancor that they eventually destroyed Rome, and after many years of internecine warfare, the decline was such that the seat of the Emperor and the Crown of Caesar were sold for a few denarius, the equivalent of $200 today. Of course this allowed the Goth and the Hun Barbarians to take over the empire and even sack the Capitol City of Rome.

Yet back on the days the reign of Julius Caesar — Rome was at it’s apex of power. His victorious conquests made Caesar a very popular leader. Still in the waning days of February and leading up to the Ides of March, Julius Caesar was warned repeatedly by Mark Anthony, his elected Co-Counsel Rome, about the vast conspiracy against him coming from the Democrats in the Senate, and of the impending troubles ahead.  He was warned to keep his imperial guard about him at all times, and even to arm himself. Prescient knowing people like his doctor, his friends, and even his wife Calpurnia, begged him not to attend the Senate meetings during the Ides of March for various reasons, including medical concerns, troubling dreams, and bloody nightmares, that his wife Calpurnia had in the preceding nights of the Caesar’s assassination.

However, no matter how stern the news of Conspiracy were all around him — Julius Caesar declined to take any of those necessary precautions, that would have saved his Life, and would have sparred the Empire from many years of bloodshed, decline, and civil wars.

Does that remind you of anything going on today?

Do you see the foaming in the mouth of the Racist Democrats of the United States and Microsoft and many other Corporatists today,  attacking President Trump and vehemently rounding against his supporters, always seeking to spill blood and cause mayhem?

Does it seem similar to what I suffered in the afternoon of February 28th, at the hands of the Hillary-bot crazed man of Microsoft Mike Pell, the micro-manager of the so called “Garage” inside building 27? Yes it does. Because I was invited by Microsoft to go to their HQ campus in Redmond Washington, where I was to give a speech about Innovation, in order to support and spur all over again the creation of Innovation that eludes failing Microsoft since they decided to be serfs to the dark side, by eliminating all Freedom and Liberty from their employees.

And does it seem that this assault and battery and the racist attack against me  was orchestrated and conspired ahead of time — when the apparently “well meaning” Microsoft, invited me to Speak inside their Campus of the Evil Empire?

Methinks, that is the case and the currently blossoming investigation will prove it. Microsoft is an evil empire that seeks to undermine our 45th President and all that America stands for, because they believe in a virulently misguided version of Globalization and they choose to serve a NeoConservative World domination agenda of the moneyed Oligarchy. Surely in that world there is no room for Free Will or Free Speech, or Free Thought for that matter…

And if you have to get permission from a hundred managers to speak and then you get shut down, attacked and hurt… you get the idea that Free Speech is not welcomed inside Microsoft corporation. Got that? Do you want some Milk with that learning?

And although conspiracies are most often successful because a conspiracy is a rather hard thing to believe that it exists in the fist place — it is even harder to defend against it. Especially when it is orchestrated by your colleagues and people that we customarily tend to trust. And that is why old Julius Caesar didn’t take precautions — same as me — when he showed up to talk with the Senate, or Microsoft as the case might be…

Today through the historical writings of Nicolaus, Suetonius, & Plutarch — we all know that Caesar went to meet the Senate unarmed and without his customary Praetorian Guard. He went alone at the Theater of Pompey, where he addressed the assembly of Senators and he spoke “Reason” as his assassins massed about him, and even when he was attacked — he did not resist, but instead covered his face with his cloak, as he was repeatedly stabbed to death inside the very meeting of the Roman Senate. This meeting is famously dramatised in William Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, when Caesar was warned by the soothsayer to “beware the Ides of March. The Roman biographer Suetonius identifies the “seer” as a haruspex named Spurinna who had perfect recall of history and always warned that it gets repeated…

Yet as I am writing this — I do not intend this as just a note for the Julius Caesar wannabes, or for the big Chiefs out there, but I intend this as a serious note for all Christians and Intelligent beings out there, that are occupying positions of Leadership or aspire to being an ethical leader.

screen-shot-2017-03-05-at-3-52-52-pm

On the Ides of March — March 15th of 44 BC — the conspirators staged a game of gladiatorial sport at Pompey’s theatre. The gladiators were provided by Decimus Brutus in case their services were needed. They waited in the great hall of the theatre’s quadriportico. Mark Antony, having vaguely learned of the plot the night before from a terrified Liberator named Servilius Casca, and fearing the worst, went to head Caesar off at the steps of the forum. However, the group of senators intercepted Caesar just as he was passing the Theatre of Pompey, located in the Campus Martius, and directed him to a room adjoining the east portico of the Theatre of Pompey.

And as Caesar arrived at the Senate meeting room, Lucius Tillius Cimber presented him with a petition to recall his exiled brother. The other co-conspirators crowded around him, in order to offer their support. Caesar waved him away, but Cimber grabbed Caesar’s shoulders and pulled down Caesar’s tunic. Caesar then cried to Cimber, “Why, this is violence!” (“Ista quidem vis est!”)…

At the same time, Casca produced his dagger and made a glancing thrust at the dictator’s neck. Caesar turned around quickly and caught Casca by the arm. According to Plutarch, he said in Latin, “Casca, you villain, what are you doing?” Casca, frightened, shouted “Help, brothers”. Within moments, the entire group, including Brutus, was stabbing the dictator. Caesar attempted to get away, but, blinded by blood in his eyes, he tripped and fell; the men continued stabbing him as he lay defenseless on the lower steps of the portico. According to Eutropius, sixty or more men participated in the assassination. Caesar was stabbed 23 times. Suetonius relates that a physician who performed an autopsy on Caesar established that only one wound (the second one to his chest that pierced his aorta) had been fatal. This autopsy report (the earliest known post-mortem report in history) describes that Caesar’s death was mostly attributable to blood loss from his stab wounds.

Caesar was killed at the base of the Curia in the Theater of Pompey.

Caesar’s last words were the Greek phrase “καὶ σύ, τέκνον;” (translated as: “Kai su, teknon?”: “You too, child?”) when he saw Brutus his protege, amongst his assassins. Caesar said nothing more, pulling his toga over his head when he saw Brutus among the conspirators. The version best known in the English-speaking world is the Latin phrase “Et tu, Brute?” (“You too, Brutus?”); this derives from Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar” (written in 1599), where it actually forms the first half of Caesar’s monologue: “Et tu, Brute? Then fall, Caesar.”

According to Plutarch, after the assassination, Brutus stepped forward as if to say something to his fellow senators not involved in the plot; they, however, fled the building. Brutus and his companions then marched to the Capitol while crying out to their beloved city: “People of Rome, we are once again free!”. They were met with silence, as the citizens of Rome had locked themselves inside their houses as soon as the rumour of what had taken place had begun to spread. According to Suetonius, all the conspirators made off, and Caesar lay there lifeless for some time, and finally three common slaves put him on a litter and carried him home, with one arm hanging down.

A wax statue of Caesar was erected in the Forum displaying the 23 stab wounds. A crowd who had amassed there started a fire, which badly damaged neighboring buildings. In the ensuing years a series of civil wars resulted with the end of the Republic and the rise of imperial Rome.

Now, we don’t all get killed in a bloodbath orchestrated from 60 murderers, but we all have to go through the trials of March. The ides of March, affect all of us, albeit to varying degrees, and with varying intensity. Who amongst us has not been hurt by evil conspirators seeking to enlarge themselves at the expense of another?

Who amongst us has not received the hate of those that think they have the Power to attack others because they believe that they have some Authority stemming from large institutions, such as Big Business, Big Government, Big Unions, Big Political Parties, and all the other contrivances of men who seek the anonymity of the mass that riots against personal liberty and the Freedom to Be whom God has declared to be made of Free Will…

Yet who amongst us has not suffered my suffering when I was attacked by the microsoftie drugged out lunatic — for no reason whatsoever?

Legal Cannabis in the State of Washington has caused all kinds of Losers to lose their mind completely and behave in totally irrational ways, and that is why I recommend to all Companies to administer drug tests to their employees.

But as a Leader, I have to be aware that much like Julius Caesar, more awareness of the circumstances and the enmities that lead misguided people to want to assassinate us in word, in action, and in deed, needs to be shared so that we may prevent some of those from happening. Because sometimes these assassinations today, do not involve daggers and swords, but are character assassinations, equally dastardly and painful or deadly, but that is how they often exist in our world.

Yet a strong Christian who believes above all Political parties, in the one party of the little known Carpenter from Nazareth  — has got to rise above all that. Because no matter how painful these “assassinations” might be — we just have to avert our eyes, and stop our ears, very much like Julius Caesar did, and cover up our head in our own cloak to soak up the blood, and make sure that nobody sees the Leader crying.

And maybe we ought to remember that it usually involves a Conspiracy with many people involved, in order for the scoundrels to work up the riot that gives them the courage to attempt to bring down a Great Leader. That is what happened to me at the Microsoft building 27, this past week, where a group of premeditated “assassins” lured me in under the pretext of inviting me to give a Speech about Innovation, and they ended up attacking me, assaulting me, and ultimately denigrating me and my work.

And that is what we all suffer as Great upstanding Leaders in this Life and Time of Trials and Tribulations. In the Ides of March… in the period of Lent where great crimes of passion are committed, and where we all have to be careful and guard ourselves accordingly.

Beyond all of our personal travails – now I will speak of another Leader, the man known as the Carpenter of Nazareth, Jesus Christ, who was strong enough and went a step further, than what is humanly possible: Jesus having not a single bone of vengeance in his body — asked his Father, our God, to do nothing more and nothing less to his assassins — but to forgive them.

Let’s place that story in context in our own Life, and feel pity for our Assassins this time of the year as we relive this year’s time of Repentance.

Put another way: There are always plenty of Trials and Tribulations to come at the beginning of Spring, the so called Period of Lent.

And this of course brings up a bunch of questions for me, because I have slowly become aware of what my Lenten practice might be…

Indeed my practice might be Spiritual Core Strengthening Exercises. In other words, it just might be the development of some type of studied indifference towards the many ignominies and attacks the “small minded people” out there throw at me.

Or it might be the reflection of maturity towards the many slights and assaults of the enemies of Liberty and Human Free Will towards my outspoken Civil Rights.

Or it might be the series of many inimical rejections by the haters and the fascists.

I was asking the other day in my meditations “Why the Racists from Microsoft attacked me?”

Why do the MicroSerfs attack a person that speaks of Liberty and Freedom to Innovate?

Is it an extreme example of the Socratic teaching that Plato described as the “Cave Paradox?”

Why?

Why is it that the chained to the wall slaves, attack to kill the person that brings Liberty, Freedom and the news about the bright Sunlight and the breath of Fresh Air, existing outside the bondage of the Cave?

And maybe this is Why I was attacked inside Microsoft when I was just speaking of Liberty, and helping people get it, and showing them the road to the sunny uplands to go to with their Startups.

I came to MicroSoft to teach, and support the Spirit of Innovation, in order to assist this once great company with regaining Innovation that is now as elusive as Unicorns and rainbows in that campus of the MS company now known simply as the evil empire residing in Redmond Washington.

But I always choose the High Road, and find the right questions to assist me in finding my true bearings, learning from both Caesar and the Carpenter of Nazareth.

And that’s the secret to avoiding being resentful…

Ask the right questions.

Here it goes…

I usually start with this one:

“Where is love leading you today?”

Who is hard for you to love?

Why?

Might there not be a way for you to love that person that “assassinated” You, anyway?

What is the difference between your attacker’s description of you, your highest values, and the way you actually live?

What unfinished spiritual business do you have that ought to be completed in light of the trauma this assassination has generated?

What are you running away from, and what would happen if you stopped avoiding it, and started healing from the PTSD that you suffered?

What exists below the surface of the image you present to the world, and the one your attackers present?

What are you hiding bellow the surface?

And what would happen if you revealed what exists below the surface?

What can you discover by taking time to keep silence?

What arises out of your meditations?

What have you wrought through the courage to look deep within?

So now pray tell: What is getting in love’s way, for you?

What kind of help do you need?

Are you willing to ask for it in prayer?

Are you open to receive it?

What gift do you have to give today to those others, the assassins of humanity and to your attackers?

How does your decision to forgive them, and all those others that you do not know — affect all those evil people you know, or even if you don’t know, and will never meet?

What can you do to make life better for those poor misguided folks, and the assassins, and all other inimical people bloodying our world as some drunken misguided vulnerable people usually do in the wider world?

What message do you need to share, but don’t feel ready to give?

What can you do to get ready to share it?

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

It is a mystery to me why People attack us with the express purpose of assassination.

Yet maybe all of this is the other side of the Socratic Cave paradox, where Free people are always attacked because Slaves begrudge their Freedom and the personal Liberty the Real Leaders exhibit in their Life and Work.

Case in point Jesus, Julius, Trump, and I would deign to humbly include myself in that list of Great Men.

But maybe there is an even deeper secret and a mystery difficult to understand if you are a non believer. And that is the mystery that as Christians we have no lasting place on this earth, and that only God loves us the way we want to be loved…

And maybe, just maybe, all these attacks and assassinations, are reminders and warnings, that we are all travelers on the way to a sacred place where God will hold us in the palm of his hand and will forever place us in the soft place of his heart…

And for that I am Grateful.

Grateful to my assassins, including the indignities and the sufferings I’ve had to go through, to get there.

Life

Somedays we meet with extreme hate, or ignorance, and right then we are faced with a choice…

Take the high road and turn the other cheek — or fight back and cause war, bloodshed, enmity, and chaos.

Hard as it is to resist the temptation to fight — we need to allow the proper authority and the divine law, to bring about Justice as befits the crime.

Hardships and suffering come to all. And they all come in different forms but all are as strong as the person can bear…

Just keep in mind that they are not meant to break you but to shape you.

And as for the singular lack of compassion some of our enemies exhibit — they are simply blind, because God is watching and he smites and blinds those he is willing to lose…

And then there is a word for it. Perdition. We suffer, yet our enemies are heading towards a fate far worse than anything we wish for them.

And never mind the darkness — because the morning dawn is never further than a few hours away.

We have just got to get through that, for if there is no dark night of the soul anymore — there can be no brilliant sunlit dawn to be found on the sunny uplands.

And if there is darkness that isn’t lit with the flickering light of the candle of faith, then there is no morning of hopefulness either.

Yet we all know that you never feel completely sad, completely indifferent, or completely happy — instead you just feel…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

And then you forgive and try to forget…

You’ll never discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

But if you have the courage to lose sight of the shore — I assure you there are no dragons, and you will discover new oceans, and maybe find some new shores and new lands to explore.

Yours,
Dr Churchill

PS:

Cheers to your new discoveries

Happy Valentine’s Day Mr President

screen-shot-2017-02-14-at-4-21-53-pm

Sure things happen rapidly with President Trump now, and the pundits and their heads are exploding all around us…

It happens because contrary to the long held and erroneous popular belief that the markets hate uncertainty — markets rally around uncertainty and that is what makes people profits.

So if people make profits, then people should learn to love “uncertainty” and that should be considered good for the markets.

So by extension we should turn the old saw around and let it be known that secretly Markets pine For Uncertainty, like a blonde bitchy beauty queen pines for a bad boy on a Harley, who will mistreat her, do drugs, rough her up, and generally cause her plenty of life affirming drama & heartache — all the while she’s finally happily validating her boring existence.

And so do the Markets. Being females of the puritan sort — they like a good thrashing in the barn with the other barn animals and thus they always choose to rally for the uncertainty that comes with a bad boy to the boring nice & steady certainty of the boy scouts.

Beautiful Markets, beautiful women — they are all the same.  Crazy, hot, ecstatic, and loving the bad boys that will thrash them around pulling their hair in the process. Sure they are also unstable, vulnerable, dramatic and erotic — but you would be hard pressed to describe whether I am talking about the Chicks or the Markets.

But take my word for it — I know both rather well in the Biblical sense, and they both like the Bad Boy induced uncertainty and drama, and that is the only thing that makes them tick. That is their reason for being. Their Raison D’ Etre. The bad boy uncertainty is what makes their pulse rise, and their blood pump, and what makes the wetness & the lovely mistiness to return to their nether southern parts.

And if you like the resultant fecundity that causes all of us to make money, from all the thrashing, the rising, and the rallying, going on — just remember that this happened because Bad Boy Trump has riled the Market’s ire…

Of course, lots of drama ensues… And we love it. The markets keep rising. Good job.

So if you happened around a television set after the Presidential elections that gave us Donald Trump as the President — you must not have escaped the litany of minions and pundits offering that tired cliche that “the Markets hate uncertainty.” It must have been unavoidable to escape hearing that red herring ad nauseam, because it was the pundits’ preferred proverb, and it could be heard throughout the Politically Correct Media on TV, on the newspapers, and on the radio, all over the land.

Yet apparently the Markets don’t own a television set, like yours truly — and thus having heard nothing of the “terribly tired Cliche” they did their own thing. The Markets did their thing and rallied. Rallied wildly according to my axiom that “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

“Markets love Bad Boys in Charge” and thus the US & UK and the World Markets went crazy and rallied strong, like unpinned bulls. The Bulls have it, and the markets went higher and higher, conquering peak after elevated peak, breaking record after record, in session after session of Wall Street and the City — behaving appropriately like bitches in heat, runaway fillies, or better yet — a horny bulls let loose, in a china shop.

Through these bulls running on Wall Street we all make loads of money now.

And in order to entertain us — these bulls started attacking the pundits, the globalist bankers, the Hilbot Fake Media, and the self loathing hedgies,  in a head on jump on their startled faces. Clearly as the picture shows, that caused a lot of wet “accidents” down there, like in the instance pictured bellow:

screen-shot-2016-11-09-at-4-05-12-am

Apparently Wall Street has a sweet tooth for such stupid investing maxims like “The Markets Hate Uncertainty” but truth be told — they enjoy them a bit too much. Fully knowing them to be fake like the news they peddle. Yet because it is through these cliches that they manage to keep the green traders, the uneducated investors, and the investment advisors under control, they make sure to infect the trading community with that brand of PC trading agenda. And Politically Correct trading is just as bad as the PC talk, and the PC Media and the PC Cultural Marxism, because it enforces the herd mentality, by spreading wildly amongst all people, and all of the servants of the Markets, like influenza in December. And it enforces a uniformity that doesn’t not allow the Freedom of Belief and Action that people with Free Will know and enjoy. It is plain and simple propaganda, because after all, the pundits all know that if you repeat these mindless dictums of insanity and stupidity, ad nauseam, they could become the accepted wisdom.

That’s where the essence of the PC propaganda rests.

These pundits, like good modern puritans along with the banker wankers and their brethren — can’t very well say my Axion “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty,” nor do they dare share it, without blushing and eating their words…

But You and I can. We are free people endowed with Free Will from our Creator.

So say it clearly so you remember it:

“Markets like Bitches like Uncertainty,” because “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat, and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

It’s simple and a memorable Meme: “Markets like Bitches like Uncertainty.”

And we can go even further: “Markets love Bad Boys in Charge.”

“Markets Love Bad Boys on Top”

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

So don’t be afraid to be a contrarian and appropriate these new Memes that prove that markets rally upon uncertainty and they love the stuff like cats love catnip.

You’ve got to go against the mainstream PC line, because that’s the basic principle of this silly PC game. Cultural marxism expropriating the stage of any reasonable debate, thus resulting in prescribed actions that make people behave in a predictable drone way. 1984 all over. George Orwell warned us about this. And for the Banker Wankers and their candidates like Bill Clinton, George Busch, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton — it’s nice if you can get this obedience by the sheeple — until the proverbial bull’s dick comes to rest on your face, looking for an entry into your pie hole.

And that’s what happened to all the news pundits with the arrival of Donald Trump into the scene. They all lost their mind…

screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-9-01-17-pm

Because The Donald, blew all of that Political Correctness out of the window. And along must go these supposed eternal proverbs, like the fallacy that markets hate uncertainty, because the problem with these supposed truisms is they are no more accurate than the flip of a coin, that is double faced.  Because a closer look at this uncertainty meme reveals it to be a falseism — one of those emotionally appealing phrases that idiots ping around trading desks, because they like to stay bored and boring doing the steady same thing time after time again and again. In essence doing no work but repeating easily done machine like actions that produce the same results.They should all be replaced by automatic trading machines and Artificial Intelligence acting computers.

Because it is the lack of evidence supporting their steady same premise that seems to matter to me since I am a Big Believer in nature. Have you ever seen any kind of certainty in existence n nature?

Pray Tell…

So in order to recognize how meaningless these statements are, consider the opposite:

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

Otherwise think of this simple question: Could markets even function without uncertainty?

It takes only a little thought to realize that markets actually thrive on doubt, imperfect information, uncertainty, and a lack of consensus.

Uncertainty drives the market’s price-discovery mechanism.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

Mark my words here because basic investing requires there to be differences of opinion. When there is broad consensus agreement as to an asset’s fair value, trading volume falls. Without any uncertainty, who would take the opposite side of your trade?

History teaches that whenever the opposite occurs — when certainty overwhelms uncertainty — the herd tends to be wrong.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

The herd tends to be wrong of course most of the time, but that’s another story…

In many instances, when there is a near-total lack of uncertainty in the market, the outcome is usually a spectacular disaster.

But let’s see what happens when absolute Certainty Rules…

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

Recall the dotcom – dot bomb Era, when everyone knew that profits no longer mattered. Uncertainty seemed to be banished.

An epic crash followed.

You Remember well what happened next…

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

We — the Contrarians were the only ones making money.

Right?

screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-8-51-04-pm

After the Internet implosion, the opposite extreme was operational: Profitable, debt-free tech companies were being traded for less than book value. In a few rare instances, they were being sold for less than cash on hand. Investors had become certain that a dollar was worth only 75 cents.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

There was little uncertainty heading into the March 2009 stock-market lows. Almost everyone was sure the world was falling into the abyss. In that massive and indiscriminate selling, it seemed almost certain that no one was ever going to buy another house or car, or send their kids to school, or for that matter, clothe or feed them.

How did the consensus work out in that instance?

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

There is No Reward from Certainty, so when we discuss uncertainty, what we are really discussing is risk. All unknown outcomes contain risk, and therein lies the possibility of loss. Risk is inherent in the concept of uncertainty. However, anyone looking for performance must embrace risk, for without it, there can be no reward.

Uncertainty is what makes alpha, or market-beating gains, possible. Smart traders know that uncertainty is where the money is. No uncertainty, no risk; no risk, no possibility of outperformance.

Want some certainty? Go buy yourself Treasuries. You can pick up a very lovely two-year bond yielding 0.41 percent. Good luck charging two and 20 on that…

Track Record, is all about the future, which, by definition, is unknowable. But on the basis of the past people choose to invest their Capital for the Future. Just think how crazy that sounds…

Investing involves making our best guesses about the value of an asset at some point after this moment in time. There will always be an element of uncertainty involved. We can discount various outcomes, engage in probabilistic analysis, but no one knows for certain what tomorrow will bring.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-8-27-46-pm

Because those “wise pundits” who claim to know it all — suffer from the “Fail Army” malady and completely fail to understand the most basic workings of the markets. Maybe because they are nice geek boys and have no working knowledge of women, or maybe because they have never talked to women before — whatever their problem — they don’t know jack shit about the markets. And we only need to consider the track record of Wall Street’s pundits & prognosticators, in order to see the truth in this statement. As much as the future is uncertain, the most likely outcomes are well understood.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

As an example, consider the uncertainty of tax rates. The 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts will either be eliminated, or they won’t. Marginal rates will go up by three or four percentage points, or not; capital gains rates might revert to 20 percent from 15 percent, or not.

The impact on the economy isn’t all that difficult to discern, even for Wall Street economists. Thus, uncertainty is far less uncertain than you might have been led to believe if you paid any attention to the chattering classes. Even the tax on dividends — which might rise from 15 percent at present to a 39.6 percent rate in the worst-case scenario — is less uncertain than it looks. Many dividend-paying stocks are held in tax-free or tax-deferred accounts, or are owned by non-taxable pension plans, foundations and trusts. This mutes the impact of even this uncertain tax change.

Pundits may hate uncertainty, because it tends to makes them look foolish twice: Before and after the fact. Whichever way the market goes, they look like fools, coming and going — but markets harbor no such bias. In fact, markets thrive on uncertainty. It is their reason for being.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

And so we have now to LOVE the uncertainty that the new President Trump has injected into the Markets.

And he understands that principle and that is why he makes it obvious that he likes to cultivate Uncertainty by the boatload.

Not only because he doesn’t want to telegraph his intentions to the world and to our enemies but because he is certain that the UNCERTAINTY IS ALL AROUND US.

Yet now it’s happening wholesale and bigly, and we all love it even though the pundits heads are exploding, and are all blaming the President for it.

So… “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

It’s happening fast, and it’s happening for all the right reasons, now that Trump has pulled back the cloak of invisibility that the German EuroMasters thought that would forever cover their puppet management of the ECB and Draghi, and their minions inside the Brussels EU machine. And by the way he does the same with the Chinese and the other allies of this Globalization NeoNazi agenda.

And maybe now, the sheeple of Europe can finally wake up from the vivid nightmare they’ve been living into because one of the most common cognitive tricks we play on ourselves is our tendency to explain what just happened with a story line that seemingly makes sense out of randomness.

Nothing ever just “is,” and we fabricate a comforting tale that (of course!) accounts for the latest events, making it possible for us to imagine we know what is going to happen next.

And then we have the problem of suspension of disbelief when perceived Authority figures speak, like Mr Draghi and Mr Carney. That problem we should correct ourselves, lest we fail to heed the warnings of our perilous existence.

Simple really. “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

Because uniform opinions and certainty leads to trouble when it comes to markets. And as usual, all too often, reality begs to differ. To wit: The post-election rally is an example of just that sort of story-telling.

Do you recall the drama on election-night as the so-called impenetrable blue wall (another narrative fantasy) crumbled and the Liberals started crying crocodile tears and Crooked Hillary went blotto, and broke all the furniture in a drunken alcoholic temper tantrum because the Good people of the Midwest spat on her face?

Good you remember that the blue wall developed just enough cracks in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that resembled Aleppo in Syria, and that made it obvious that the lead will go to Donald Trump and lead the Conservative Leader into the White House.

And despite the closeness of the polling heading into the last few days of the campaign, the Banker Wanker were assured of Hillary’s victory and kept pumping millions and billions into the election of their servant Crooked Hillary. Even the Saudis who gave her a whooping Billion dollars went to the global markets to borrow this Capital and for a moment it seemed that everybody was unprepared for the lovely “No-Surprise” of the TRUMP PRESIDENCY. However the Markets in their wisdom had anticipated and priced this outcome, and although the reflective pessimism of the new Bears sell out helped them fall as much as 5 percent on the news — they immediately rebounded sky high.

After all — Perception is Reality.

screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-8-32-06-pm

The pundits after-the-fact explanation was that Trump was going to start a trade war or a currency war or an actual shooting war, any of which would be bad for business and corporate profits, and that is why everyone was recommending a sell off. A panic sell out followed that brought down 900 points in the futures markets overnight… Surely the sheeple followed that bad panic driven advise and along with the milennial traders crying over spilled milk of Hillary’s loss, and losing their shit – many others lost their shit and lost their shirt too. Hedgies like George Soros who is estimated to have lost a whooping Ten Billion Dollars acting out on bad advise of his own pessimism about Donald Trump, are now crying in their cups. Hillary Clinton’s losses and the Clnton’s wealth invested in her son in law Hedge Fund were so massive — that the Hedge Fund has to be shuttered. Along with the losses of the Clinton’s in the Free markets, the capital of the Clinton Global Initiative has flown the coop in these monumental Market Reversal and are now shutting down the whole CGI corruption outfit that was masquerading as a Charity for the benefit of the Clinton mafia alone.

Well deserved deserts for all concerned. As for George Soros losing his shirt from the Free markets reacting as Free and Brave People expressed themselves — that’s the cost of an old Nazi expressing his undying Love for Crooked Hillary, America the land of the Free and the brave. Well Done Moffos…. Ba-Ha, ba-ha, ba-ha…

These morons lost their shirts because even before the markets opened in the USA, their futures had already reversed as cool headed people celebrated Donald Trump’s Victory with an Optimistic and “Super Buy” mood. Markets kept rallying day after day and the Losers’ losses kept mounting. That’s why they unleashed the Riot Brigades to scare the Markets into submission by showing stupidly that the US was ungovernable…

Now questions have come up about the ties between Goldman Sachs and another member of the Clinton family: Hillary’s son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky. He worked at Goldman for eight years, then formed a hedge fund in part with help from Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein, and the money of the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton’s private wealth… Marc Mezvinsky, the hedge fund manager son in law of Hillary Clinton, has now officially shut down his hedge fund after losing all of his investors money.

Chelsea Clinton’s husband, failed hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky, has closed his failed hedge fund, Eaglevale Partners, according to a Bloomberg report.

The hedge fund, which was launched in 2011 with the help of Goldman Sachs CEO and longtime Clinton supporter Lloyd Blankfein, shut down in December, and is in the process of returning money to investors.

Eaglevale Partners was not very successful. In May 2016, Mezvinsky announced the shutting down of a special Greece-focused investment fund that had lost nearly 90 percent of its value in two years.

Mezvinsky’s career in finance has been slightly more successful than that of his father, former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky, who served five years in jail for defrauded his friends and family members out of millions of dollars.

Like Father, like son…

Well they failed. They all failed. And they failed bigly. They failed big league. And they now officially populate the Fail Army and looking for a job as your next Financial Analyst. Let’s throw them a bone and hire them to clean the toilets.

So, the after-the-fact explanation requires a serious rewrite.

In my mind here are the three things that are the cause of the Markets’ Tremendous Upswing:

  1. Donald Trump
  2. Donald Trump
  3. Donald Trump  — The cause of all this Goodness is simply Donald Trump leading from the White House and working on behalf of Making America Great Again. Because those who thought that the simple expectations of the Markets, like the incoming big infrastructure stimulus, the future big tax cuts, and the broad deregulation for banks and industry that are all coming, would do the job alone — are fools. All of these things are now on the menu — simply because DONALD TRUMP became the 45th President of the United States. So because of him, all of the U.S. markets took off, rallying more than 12% during the course of the next month.

How is that not beautiful?

And given all of this, I have my own after-the-fact explanation: UNCERTAINTY RULES.

YES, uncertainty rules. Uncertainty, although not in the way you’ve been conditioned to think about it based on the widespread misuse of the term by too many market pundits and commentators, is a necessary ingredient of Life, Markets, & Nature.

A more appropriate definition of this concept probably can explain the market’s shift in sentiment: “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

We have addressed the issue of uncertainty and why uncertainty is a necessary driver of markets. Yet for today’s exercise, let’s use “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.” as an explanation of the difference between what is unknown and what is uncertain.

screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-9-06-13-pm

It’s something like this:

Unknown: We don’t know exactly what any specific outcome might be, but we do know the data set we are working with — the range of possible outcomes is limited.

Uncertain: We don’t know exactly what any specific outcome might be, and we also have an open data set — many outcomes are possible. The data set is unknown and unknowable.

For money managers, the difference between these two matters a great deal, as it significantly affects how they determine what the risk of any given investment or market or environment might be.

Consider various unknown but not uncertain events: Toss of a coin, roll of a dice, flip of a card from a deck — all of these are unknown outcomes within a very defined data set. Because of that, mathematicians can quantify the probabilities of these outcomes; we know what the distribution looks like. From that, gamblers can derive estimates of risk.

However, once we venture into the realm of the wholly unknown possible outcomes — e.g., building a border fence, imposing a huge tax on imports, shutting down immigration — calculating risk becomes from difficult to impossible.

Which brings us back to the period since the markets began to rally after the election: My thesis is that Trump has re-introduced true uncertainty into the equation. Many market participants are coming to realize they have no idea what is going to happen next. And that is helping Markets rally, because “Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

The PC media and the PC collective wishful thinking assumed Trump would pivot to the middle, to being presidential, to predictable professionalism, failing to really pay attention and hear the man himself speaking. They fail to hear President Trump and hear whatever it is they like to have heard. If that s not mass hysteria and massive illusion then I don’t know what that is. Because President Trump basically executes on what he promised to do on his pre-election program, on his promises, and on his agenda. Still idiotic people don’t believe him because they have never seen a Politician that carries on what they promise to the Office after they won.

screen-shot-2017-01-22-at-7-21-26-am

But the Donald, is not a politician and that is what throws the spanner in the works.

He does what he promised but uses reverse psychology on the Politically Correct Media and the Pundits and that has altered the mind of the Public to the point that they don’t believe what is happening. The PC brigade has seen their own heads explode, and we see that all over the Media.

And of course as a response the PC media and the PC pundits claim that all kinds of devilish scenarios are playing out, but it all turns out peachy. We win. Victories abound. Peaches and cream, along with flag and apple pie, and even the amazing Patriots win at the Super Bowl.

As for the apocalyptic end of the world scenarios that the Libtards have promised the Trump presidency will usher — none of that has happened, none of the panic is real, and the markets that according to pundits should have have been somewhat put off by the president’s erratic, even bizarre, behavior, have instead just rallied and rallied ahead breaking new and fresh records.

Apparently the sort of stability and certainty that is supposedly good for business has been notably absent, and the Markets love the uncertainty.

“Markets, behave very much like Bitches in heat and Love the Bad Boy induced Uncertainty.”

So to all the Casandras out there — I have one thing to say to you:

Pull up your panties high and tight, and let’s enjoy the ride.

Join up and enjoy the ride, because there is an after party for the Winners too.

After all, it’s the Chinese year of the Phoenix-Rooster, and that looks awfully like Donald Trump and the Year of Making America Great Again.

Saving the European Union, the EuroZone, and the Euro coin itself from extinction is nobody’s priority today, except Germany’s.

And even if that were doable — who is going to save Germany from itself ?

Because saving Germany from it’s dark ego psyche is just an impossibility.

Especially since the very “nature” of Germany is what causes this problem.

The Hun psychology is evident in the actions of the EU and the ECB and also in the craziness that has befallen it’s beleaguered Frankfurt stooge, Mr Draghi…

The euro was born in 1999, and so is still technically just a teenager. Growing pains and volatility are to be expected, but to be using the Euro in order to bind people and whole Nations into slavery under the Huns is unprecedented. And to have built a whole bureaucracy of faceless complicit bureaucrats and unelected puppets pretenders to European leadership i order to subjugate a whole continent to the German jackboot of the ECB is having a historical parallel to the Second World Era occupation where the then EURO known otherwise as the European Deutche Mark, ran the European economies to the ground in order to produce surpluses for the German War Effort.

Sounds similar to today?

Of course the Good Germans would never do that…

Right?

For those of you who haven’t got a good reading of WWII history and of the German Reich, or of their vast conspiracy to exterminate upwards of ten million of people in an industrial way — I suggest that you probably remember more fresh German ignominies.

If you can forget the Holocaust — then I don’t have much faith in your mental faculties but I’ll still give it a go…

How about the Volkswagen scandal of emissions taking place this last year ?

Do you remember the institutional fraud of the biggest Auto maker in the world conniving to fool the emissions testers of the EPA regulators in the United States and Europe, in order to pass muster with their secret over the board emissions ?

And do you recall the Company’s constant denial after the fact ?

And the CEO and Board of Directors constant denial until the Prosecutors in the US took them to task and they had to give up the blame game and threw a lowly engineer under the bus in order to shield the leadership ?

Surely only a lowly VW engineer was involved in this historic and massive scandal. It must have been the software surely could have been a better explanation but these super busy and super industrious Germans can’t think of everything…

Surely this vast fraud, was not a conspiracy from the top.

Well, if you believe that one — then I’ve got a bridge, a White House, and a tower, I want to sell to you.

Still, the defensive tone of this morning’s European Parliament testimony by the new European Deutche Mark, the EURO currency’s chief puppet steward, European Central Bank President, Mr Mario Draghi, spoke about the currency union’s especially troubled youth, and why it has to be redeemed…

Mr Mario Draghi, a closely watched cartoon character — Super Mario — who famously helped ease the euro’s deepest crisis in 2012 with the three simple words “whatever it takes,” still seems to be doing whatever he can, in order to fend off the currency union’s vocal detractors, and in order to serve his Masters, the German High Command…

Earlier in his tenure at the ECB, Draghi’s primary critics came from the German & the European Parliament, where officials worried the central bank’s easy money policies might help weaker economies while generating inflation for Germans — a fear that has proven repeatedly unfounded, since the system is designed to help Germany control the European economies and thus produce German surpluses in perpetuity.

But now, with presidential elections looming in France in the wake of right-wing political victories first in Britain and the United States, the magnitude of the existential threat to the euro only seems to have become greater.

“It is easy to underestimate the strength of this commitment,” Draghi said. “But that would overlook the progress we have made. With the single currency, we have forged bonds that survived the worst economic crisis since the Second World War.”

“This was in fact the original raison d’être of the European project: keeping us united in difficult times, when it is all too tempting to turn against our neighbors or seek national solutions.”

It’s not hard to understand why Draghi chose to speak of the common currency in such broad, historical terms. This was Draghi’s message to the continent’s nationalists, like France’s Marine Le Pen, who would like to dissolve the euro.

Draghi, being a mouthpiece of the failed European globalization policies, also didn’t mince words when it came to the Trump administration’s recent accusation that Germany was manipulating its currency by undervaluing the euro, rejecting the claim outright, by saying that “Trump’s talk is a curious claim considering Germany has also been calling for higher interest rates, which would likely be accompanied by a stronger euro.”

Of course that is a well placed smoke screen for the ECB and it’s handlers in Frankfurt, as seen by how Super Mario Draghi  used his podium, to sail a few words past his less radical, pro-euro German critics, saying: “The objective of Economic and Monetary Union should be to strive to achieve ‘economic and social progress’ as was the intention of the signatories to the Maastricht Treaty.”

“And for this, we need sustained growth and job creation,” Thus said Super Mario. And we believe him… Not.

He then went on to list the economic stabilization and improvement seen in the last few years in detail, adding “our monetary policy has been a key contributor to the positive economic developments I have described.”

It is surprising to see how the central bankers who grew so accustomed to having their every word being front-page news during the global financial crisis and heard around the globe like gospel readings — now in the aftermath — it must come as an adjustment to suddenly be relegated to the back pages, and to be made fun of…

And so, they suddenly rail against their return to insignificance, by even making up news for themselves, by becoming visibly animated and sticking their finger and tongue out in places they should never have been in the first place — instead of continuing being the inoffensive colorless, odorless gray & quiet men, they should always be. The obsessively solemn accountants — that never speak unless spoken to.

On the other hand another Globalist, Mr Mark Carney, the Canadian governor of the Bank of England, says he views this change of status as a positive development, in one of his many visible and verbose interventions in the daily news… “In many respects, we’re coming to the last seconds of central bankers’ 15 minutes of fame, to use the Warhol line, which is a good thing,” Carney said during his press conference on Thursday that followed the Bank of England’s policy decision.

“It’s a more balanced policy mix. Also, structural policy is becoming more important, trade policy clearly important here and elsewhere.”

However, the former Goldman Sachs partner’s reading of the situation may be too optimistic. After all, the reason the Bank of England, and the US Federal Reserve, have suddenly become less relevant is that both are facing levels of political turmoil and uncertainty not seen in decades.

In the UK, a slow, halting Brexit process is pushing up inflation and depressing investment, which is why policymakers decided to leave interest rates on hold Thursday.

Stateside, the first two weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency have been a whirlwind of rolling mini-crises that threaten to become bigger problems down the line, most recently an unusual diplomatic spat with the US ally and trading partner Australia. This is on top with ongoing beef with Mexico, China, Iran, and others.

Making interest-rate policy boring again would be wonderful if the US and the UK had suddenly embarked on constructive debates about better ways to use fiscal policy or other major economic initiatives. But that’s just not what’s happening.

On the upside, the turmoil simplifies the Fed’s decision-making, and the classical thinking going along the lines, of why raise interest rates when the Trump uncertainty factor so overwhelmingly clouds the outlook…

Whereas the question that should be on everybody’s mind is what is the best for the Economy of the US and the General World Economic Outlook via Mercantile Expansion.

And if our friend Donald Trump is willing to tackle the American debt and manage a structured restructuring of it, to the favor of the United States — he is the man to accomplish that in a decent and favorable way.

A restructuring of the massive debt will help all of the world’s economies breath better…

Yours,
Dr Churchill

PS:

It appears that the European Central banks’ “15 minutes of fame” are coming to an end, far sooner than what the Germans and their puppet Brussels bureaucrats along with their Frankfurt counterparts could wrap their heads around the inevitability of history branding them as useless pariahs.

The Peoples of Europe will take a little longer to wake up, but that should not be too far away now — especially since the Brexit breach of the PanEuropean vessel named EURO whose trajectory now resembles the fate of the infamous Swedish imperial ship named VASA, becomes visible.

People must look after each other…

As People, we must look after each other, no matter what religion we all are…

Humans have an intrinsic tribal belief that distinguishes friend from foe, based along lines of proximity and relative connections.

All these connections are questioned today that we are all connected at most through six degrees of separation — yet we still fear more than anyone else the “Stranger” or the “Foreigner” regardless of their origin, their customs, their religion, or even their nationality.

Yet people are people, regardless of all else, and we can build on that singular quality.
