President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address Tuesday evening, and sacked all the sacred cows out there. He broke all the taboos of Washington establishment politics. Good on him. He rocked the boat and upturned the applecarts of all the petty bureaucrats, the mass media, and their barons… of the deep state establishment.

It was a true revelation that he spoke the blunt truth to all Americans, and to the rest of World as well. Indeed, President Trump alerted us all, that if we thought that the old models of leadership, the old ways of thinking about how America influences the World, the old ways of thinking about how America manages these complex issues that we’re all a part of, and if what we thought we knew and took for granted was good enough — it’s certainly not good enough today.

In his speech, whose theme was “a safe, strong, and proud America,” President Donald Trump emphasized the importance of compromise on the major issue of immigration, focusing on results when the Senate meets next week on legislation to protect young, undocumented immigrants from deportation.

He then spoke of Economic and Jobs Security for Americans, and introduced a $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill.

He also spoke eloquently about the recent tax cuts, and the resulting strength of the US economy. He focused his National Security part of the speech by addressing the security threat posed by North Korea, promising a “campaign of maximum pressure.”

In his address, President Trump said that the US has entered a “new American moment.”

He added: “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Indeed this is as good a time to be, feel, and behave like an American, as any time in our history.

Thank You Mr President.

Let’s all work hard together now, to Make America Great Again.

God Bless and God Speed.

Seattle Pravda 2018 — Сиэтл Правда 2018

Seattle Folks: Stop crying.

Seattle Women: Stop marching.

Seattle Men: Put down that marijuana pipe and listen.

Seattle Children: Ditto as above.

All of You: Stop whatever you are doing and give Thanks for there’s never been a better time to be alive and be American, than it is now.

Indeed, 2017 has been our best year yet, and 2018 will be even better…

And it is the best time to be any kind of Earthling in the year 2018, because this past year, has been mankind’s best year yet, and this new one promises to be even better.

No matter your nation, your color, your creed, your ideology, your identity, your profession — this is the best of times. And more is yet to come…

Because the year 2018 will be even better than the last one.

As for Americans, with President Trump firmly and comfortably on track to help America become great again — your family’s set to reap the rewards of his service handsomely, and more so in the years to come.

I know that’s an unfashionable view to express amongst the savages and the barbarians of the leftist persuasion that turn yellow like jaundiced Chinese sailors, at the mere mention of the name “Trump” — but who cares.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 10.09.35 AM

I get it.

I live in Seattle where the mere mention of the name “Trump” causes anaphylactic shock to most people around me. But in a deliciously naughty way it’s like purposefully crying “Fire-Fire-Fire” in a crowded theater, without the legal ramifications.

So we go forth boldly into the future, talking about the Donald, whenever we step into a comfy coffee shop in Seattle, and by virtue of our conversation we cause the Trump Derangement Syndrome to manifest in all the weak minds all around, as people start dropping whatever they were doing and in a frenzied fashion they run for the nearest exit door. And that’s how we get a decent place to sit down and enjoy our uber-gay sparkling caramel choco frappuccino latte, in the middle of the super gray Seattle winter, that sees all the coffee shops being fully booked.

You should try it some time…

Try it, just for fvck’s sake.

Go to a random coffee shop in Seattle, and start talking in a regular outdoors voice about Donald Trump and his successes with your mates. It sure as hell going to get the place empty, within the next 20 seconds. Liberal leftists, with hair in all the wrong places, will start scurrying away like rats leaving a sinking ship, lest they hear the name Trump again, the name that sends shivers down their spines. And you like a good pirate lad “Shiver me timbers” will grab the best seat in the joint, or the best joint in the place, depending which way your roll…

And this is how you get a comfortable centrally located table, in any Starbucks that you visit, including the much preferred Roastery, that is far too popular with the Japanese and Chinese tourists. Apparently in Seattle these exotic Orientals, respond to the name “TRUMP” in the same way as all the other various shades of broken people of Seattle, and they will all run for the exits pell-mell. You are welcome.

Am telling you, Lord Voldemort of Harry Potter fame, has got nothing on Donald J Trump.

And it is here in Seattle’s fragile mental-scape, that the official line is that we’re all going to hell in a hand basket, that the GOP is crashing our economy, that Donald Trump is threatening world peace, that our gardener and his provisioning of our illegal drugs is going back to Mexico on ICE, and now our living standards are stuck into plain “champagne & caviar” mode, without the delicious organic kale and the Mexican Ayahuaska our illegal gardeners brought over every time someone of their extended family crossed the Rio Grande.

As for me, I am not ashamed to tell you: “Mind you — there has never been a better time to be American.”

In fact, there has never been a better time to be alive anywhere on God’s green earth. And there has never been a better time to be _______ (fill in the blanc with your country’s nationality).

Now, let me prove the above proposition to you.

Let’s start with mankind in general.

People today, are living longer, healthier, and more fulfilled lives, than ever before.

Yet a whole industry of cry-babies, depends on persuading us that global poverty is getting worse, and we need to give them some of our hard earned cash to help the poorest of the poor, escape serious famine and starvation — but the numbers tell a different story.

Just back in 1985, more than 40% of human beings lived on a dollar a day or less. Today, that figure has fallen to just 9%.

You can take any world index measures you like, and you shall see this downwards trend in suffering, in pain, and in poverty amongst all of the world’s human beings.

We are all less likely to be ill, or less likely to be murdered, and even less likely to die in war.

More of us can read today, than at any other time in history.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 3.11.21 PM

Fewer women die in childbirth.

More children make it to adulthood.

More adults cast meaningful votes in elections.

In America and in your country, same as elsewhere — life is generally getting better.

The economy has flourished, to the annoyance of the “Chicken-little Democrats” crying that the sky is caving in…

Of course some of them, continue to moan about the impact of Trump in their mental fitness, if not in their finances, but most Americans have silently thanked him, for the tax breaks, and are enjoying the benefit of his tax overhaul policy.

More of us are gainfully working, than ever before. We’re making and selling things previous generations never dreamt of. We also consume more and better things.

Organic foods now account for a whopping 25% of all of our food consumption in America.

Those economists who say that things haven’t improved in a generation seem to have forgotten how we lived 20 years ago — with no cheap flights, no wifi, five channels on TV, and maybe the occasional Blockbuster video.

It is, of course, human nature not to see the improvements.

Every generation, going back to ancient times, thought it was going through unusually hard days, but that’s self preservation – not reality.

We moan about high prices without stopping to think that many of the things we are buying previously didn’t exist. We complain about immigration, but rarely ask why so many people are ­determined to come to “Trump’s America” rather than stay in high-crime Mexico, or __________ (feel free to enter your country here to fill in the blanc).

What of it?

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 3.10.01 PM

To the visible annoyance of some ­Clinton pining fools, our economy has continued to flourish since the vote. Manufacturing orders and industrial output are at 30-year highs. Unemployment is at a 42-year low. The Dow Jones hit 26.000 and just keeps on climbing…

Exports are rising.

The Stock Exchange is at an all-time peak. Wall Street remains the world’s premier financial ­centre and companies seek to register in the New York stock exchanges like never before.

The threats issued by the Clinton criers during the Elections, turned out to be bollocks.

As for political chaos, while it’s true that the 2016 election results took most observers by surprise — the Trump administration remains comfortably on track.

All the people who felt that we will fail as a nation, if their darling, the corrupt & crooked Hillary, wasn’t given the keys to the White House — have now come to terms with the fact that she was given the keys to the outhouse.

Yet this crowd of “private cloud” bearing upon their heads, sad individuals, persist that the World is coming to an end. Just read Paul Krugman, the odd economic fellow of the New York Times, who predicted the gloom & doom for Trump, and has now been “vindicated” fully NOT, and you get a sense of foreboding that these folks are drinking some strange Cool-Aid out there.

Maybe their Cool-Aid is laced with LSD?

That’s the best explanation that I can come up with. And of course, they want us to drink the same Cool-Aid they consume. Bottoms up and then we can all see the economy crashing down all around us, as the liquid walls of reality turn to all the colors of the rainbow…

Hope it doesn’t come to that.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 3.12.38 PM

As a matter of fact, I doubt it will ever come to that.

And as a counterbalance for the foolish economists like the NYT fuzzy math darling Paul Krugman, that prophesied the end of the world if Trump gets elected, we know that they are mostly insecure brokers of gloom & doom, laboring under a dark cloud of their own making. But then we also have the whole mass media of the Fake News industry, that is now just beginning to eat their just deserts, by the subscribing public that is abandoning them in droves, looking to get their news elsewhere — beyond the “Red Curtain.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 11.45.54 AM

We must turn asunder the “Red Curtain” and liberate ourselves from the purveyors of the PRAVDA style news manufacturers, that have forgotten that the TRUTH is not called PRAVDA.

That’s how we thrive.

Sure, some of you still tend to cry every time you hear the signal to unleash the waterworks: “Russia – Russia – Russia” dripping like poisonous venom from the collective mouth of the “three stooges” Rachel Maddow, Lemon, & Cooper, of the CNN (Clinton News Network) who collectively pay more money to their private therapists for psychiatric help, than all the citizens of a sizable African nation combined.

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 4.56.48 PM

Yet, the rest of us — we are far better than that.

Not that we don’t see our therapist. Not that at all. Everyone who lives in Seattle must have their heads examined, at least once a week…

But other than that…

We are healthy adults working hard at our jobs, our families, and our gardens.

We are not pessimists.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 3.11.43 PM

This is not the kind of people we are.

We are Americans.

We are optimists.

We are entrepreneurs.

We are an abundant nation.

We lead the world in everything.

We make the best of everything.

Our airplanes slice the skies 24/7/365 all over the globe.

Our computer systems and software runs the world.

Our Internet connects everyone and anyone.

Our Innovations make the World, a safer and better place to be.

Our space faring technology allows us to leave this rock hurling through space whenever we are good and ready.

We trade with all the nations of this earth including our enemies.

We give foreign and food aid to all the needy places of this earth and we even give food aid to North Korea who thanks us by threatening us with nuclear missiles every other day of the week — Sundays included.

The stock market is at an all-time high.

We are as well if not better placed, as any nation on Earth to make a success of this century and to maintain our pole position for the near future.

American Capitalism understands that we must help everyone, not just fat cats and big companies… and the presently enacted Tax bill of president Trump does just that.

We face challenges of course. And surely the eyes of the World, and other countries are upon us, watching to see whether we stumble, or fall into the trap of war and destruction across the Pacific.

Thank God, we escaped the war mongering Hillary and her cabal of murderers in high places, that would have surely by now taken us down to a nuclear war to end all wars…

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.01.27 PM

Yet methinks that we will avoid the trap of war and will surely show them that we are the resolute and innovative nation we have always been, and with this President, we also know how to make a deal that leaves enough around the table for everyone else, and thus we need not resort to war to maintain our Global Supremacy.

So what will 2018 bring?

That’s up to us.

We can now design policies to suit ­ourselves.

We can cut taxes further. We can scrap regulations. We can ensure lower prices through free trade agreements with the many countries queuing up to sign deals with us, individually and collectively, and we can still maintain Pax Americana all over the globe for unprecedented prosperity and growth for all.

On the issue of Climate Change and atmospheric greenhouse pollution effects, we can sort it out on our own. After the various globalist accords have been torn asunder, being a free country means being free to succeed and solve the problem in our own terms and not being dictated by bureaucrats at the UN or in Beijing about the carbon intensity of our economy.

But methinks that we are fine with President Trump, and most Americans would agree with me on this.

Except no one in Seattle sees things the same way as I do. So they all blindly and collectively, hate president Trump, for Making America Great Again.

The people of Seattle are so crazed about the 2016 elections, that they have been holding crying parties about President Trump, and are always trying to come up with new imaginative ways to impeach him for imaginary crimes. There is actually a drinking game about the impeachable offenses that Trump has engaged into, and every time a participant names one offense — he/she has to down a shot of vodka. The “Russia, Russia, Russia” president’s connection is obvious to them, so it better be a Russian Vodka that you get inebriated with…

To these amazing Seattle stoners, snowflakes, and buttercups, downing the Russian vodka shots for every imaginable & impeachable Trump offense, I have only one thing to say: “Nostrovia”

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 1.38.52 PM

Alcohol is obviously a depressant but then it is also the plentiful legal weed that is broadly consumed by the Seattle populace, and that is not helping their addled brains either, since most Seattleites are stoned out of their gourd; during most of the waking daylight hours. And with the edible marijuana pastries, now being part of the menu in most coffee shops — you get the idea. Productivity amongst otherwise intelligent workers is dropping like a lead weight.

The explosion of the stoner population, coupled with the anti-business sentiment of the political class has driven companies like Amazon to search and find a new locale in order to migrate to a city that does not offer legal marijuana, and crying games of suicidal neurotics and psychopaths, but instead presents a level headed populace and a friendlier business environment to operate in…

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 1.33.58 PM

So who knows why Seattleites are unhappy?

Maybe its the weather and the seasonal depression that has become a constant for all people here, and they try to medicate against…

But weather being what it is — at least it keeps the Californicators away — I have never seen so much sadness amongst perfectly healthy & wealthy people, that otherwise enjoy the best that Life has to offer.

Still Seattle is the suicide capital of the world, and the high span of the Aurora bridge holds the record for more suicides per inch of that bridge, than any other place on earth…

So clearly the consumption of marijuana does not work against depression, or against suicidal tendencies, and the self hate that animates all those broken people to suicide, is the same self-hate that animates their lives against their parents, against this conservative, and against President Trump.

Still this much self-hate, does not help either.

So what to do?

We could, I suppose, opt for stronger medically prescribed medicine, or for a change of perspective and solution to their daddy issues, or for stronger medicine still, like declaring Bernie Sanders as the President in this alternative reality little town of Seattle.

Bernie Sanders, who regrets that the Soviet Union lost the Cold War, since that’s where he took his new bride for their honeymoon back in the day that there still was a Soviet Union to speak of.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 1.39.54 PM

Imagine that…

Taking your sweetheart for a honeymoon to the gray Soviet paradise. The people’s paradise. The place where every second person was a KGB informer and the paranoia was even greater than the paranoia of the people of Seattle that is induced by the abundant use of marijuana…

Bernie must have thought the Soviet Union, to be the world’s ninth wonder. A place full of “Homo-Sovieticus” and Bernie Sanders with his new bride in tow. Maybe he thought that in the Soviet paradise his new bride must be safe from the advances of other men, since when he read the Travel brochures, the place was described as full of Homo Sovieticus.

Analyze that…

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 1.33.26 PM

Sadly the Soviets didn’t publish suicide statistics, so I cannot compare them with Seattle’s suicide rates, but between those shot by KGB, those who died in the gulag from privations, and those who were trying to escape that infamous Soviet paradise and got murdered by the border guards — methinks that Soviet life expectancy was on the average about the same in the old Soviet Union, as it is in the last remaining Soviet town, the leftist world’s darling, the City of Seattle.

And if you don’t believe me, here is the Seattle statue of Vladimir Lenin proudly lording it over the slaves and the microserfs, of the unaccountable corporations like Microsoft that walk and pray in the image of Lenin just bellow the Aurora bridge in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 1.32.59 PM

Here is the man in his entirety, that brought the fruits of the Soviet Paradise to the Russians and all the slavic states and many far east and caucasus states during his reign.

Conservative estimates peg the political murder rate from Lenin’s purges to at least 30 million people across the vast expanse of the old Soviet Union that came to be after the collapse of the nascent Russian Democracy that the Bolsheviks usurped.

Some nasty people those old Commies proved to be, when History was able to record the truth about their dastardly deeds….

President Trump: A year of real change
by President Donald J. Trump | Jan 20, 2018, 9:14 AM

“Even as Democrats continue to obstruct and play politics, I have never stopped fighting for the people, and I have no intention of changing course. I promised Jan. 20, 2017, would be remembered as a new day for all Americans – the day the people became the rulers of this nation once again.

For the past 365 days, that promise has been my guide. We are putting America first, making real change in Washington, and creating opportunities for all of our people. From coast to coast, there is a renewed spirit. Our country is roaring back more quickly than anyone could have predicted. The American Dream is real again.

Estimates predict the U.S. economy grew at an annualized rate of more than 3 percent in the fourth quarter of last year – just like it did in the two quarters before that. The economy has created more than 2 million new jobs, and the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest rate in 17 years: 4.1 percent. We have achieved the lowest African-American unemployment rate on record, and the unemployment rate for Hispanic Americans has also hit historic lows. Chrysler has announced plans to bring jobs and production back to the U.S. from Mexico. And the stock market continues to set record high after record high.

Screen Shot 2018-01-20 at 10.47.06 PM

Just before Christmas, we enacted massive tax cuts and tax reform for the American people. For the first time in 30 years, we reformed the tax code to make it simpler and fairer. We have lowered rates for both individuals and businesses, expanded 529 education savings accounts to be used for K-12 education, and doubled the child tax credit. These changes will not only allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money, but they will help make American workers and businesses competitive again. This sweeping reform also repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate – an unpopular, cruel, and burdensome tax that hit low- and middle-income Americans the hardest.

Over the year, as Americans have seen increases in their paychecks and retirement accounts, American companies in every sector have grown their business and created more jobs. I have created a more business-friendly environment by mandating, early on in my administration, that for every one regulation an agency proposed, two regulations must be eliminated. Many said that could not be done. Not only did we meet that goal, we far exceeded it, eliminating 22 regulatory actions for every new regulation.

As your president, I have unleashed our abundant American energy by ending the war on coal and approving major projects like the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. After 40 years of fights with those who want to keep America’s potential locked in the ground, we have opened a small portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve to safe and responsible exploration and development.

Americans are living in communities that are safer, stronger, healthier, and more secure. We are rooting out violence and restoring the rule of law. The federal government will not turn a blind eye to the widespread opioid epidemic that has caused too many funerals for too many families. I directed my Cabinet to make responding to the public health emergency one of their most urgent priorities, and I provided more than $1 billion in funding in 2017 to address opioid addiction and other drug-related problems.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 10.22.38 AM

Real change is happening on the world stage as well.

Immediately upon taking office, I directed the rebuilding of our military, a new national security strategy, a comprehensive nuclear posture review, and the fielding of state-of-the-art ballistic missile defenses. I personally engaged with 150 world leaders at home and abroad, and our great military is executing new strategies that have liberated Mosul and Raqqa, retaken almost 100 percent of the land that ISIS had seized in Syria and Iraq, and lifted restrictions on U.S. forces in Afghanistan to defeat the terrorists and create conditions for a negotiated political settlement.

In recognition of the amazing job our military does protecting the homeland, a debt we can never truly repay, I am making sure this government fulfills its obligation to our veterans. We have already enacted major reforms to strengthen the Department of Veterans Affairs’ ability to provide high quality healthcare and benefits to millions of veterans and their beneficiaries. We have increased accountability, as the VA has fired 1,440 failing employees, suspended 430, and demoted 79, all as part of my efforts to make sure veterans get the help they need, in the time frame they deserve.

Finally, I have filled numerous vacancies in our federal courts with judges who will interpret the law as written – including our exceptional new Supreme Court Justice, Neil Gorsuch.

After one year, I am proud to report to the American people that we truly are making America great again – for all Americans!”

–Donald J. Trump, President of the United States.

Posted by: Dr Churchill | January 20, 2018

Read on…

via Vision 2020, and the “Russia Crying Game” of the unaccountable corporations, and their “serfing” class of slaves…

I have a rather personal experience informing my opinion, and have also been able to amass the necessary evidence that the election of 2016 was rigged.

You see, I ran as a Senatorial candidate for the State of Washington in the elections of 2016. And faced the barrage of Democratic party corruption and illegal game playing, so much so, that I was disgusted by that “crying game.”

I was utterly disgusted by how the Clinton leaning Patty Murray the incumbent sought to silence any and all opponents by dirty game playing done by her Moxie Media productions and her operatives that seek to empty the field in advance of her interests, and they do so ruthlessly gaming the system. In Washington state for example and in King County where we are certain that the majority voted for Bernie Sanders, somehow by “magic” Hillary Clinton was declared the winner. With no less that 97% of the vote, she rivals Gaddafi, Mugabi, Stalin, and Saddam Hussein, with these results that are mathematically impossible in a Democracy…

We all know how Hillary Clinton and the Democrats cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Primaries, and that unapologetic assault against our Democracy, by the Democratic party, further proves my theory that some of those cancerous elements of the monopoly, oligopoly, or duopoly, of the two party system, should have been put to rest long ago.

At least we should break up their exclusive stranglehold on power that allows the interplay between Democrats and Republicans, and force both of them to take the test of Democracy in public. That is, we ought to ensure fairness for our next elections and thus prevent what happened in 2016, from ever happening again. At the very least, we ought to gear up, and prevent all the kinds of abuse that we have identified from being pivotal players in 2020.

That is the “2020 Vision” of the Lincoln party now. No Corruption in Electoral Politics, in order to receive a Transparent and Fair Election in our Presidential 2020 elections.

To do just that, we have found that we need to isolate and prevent the undemocratic elements such as the whole powerful and yet unaccountable corporations of the Internet, from interfering with our elections.

We ought to stop the unaccountable and ungovernable Minnie-me elitist globalist corporations and their billionaire leaders, from making another run to steal our mid-term 2018, and our 2020 presidential elections.

We should also stop foreign billionaires from voting with their vast wealth in our elections, like prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal from Saudi Arabia, has famously done through his personal contact with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. This sinful relationship with the Saudi billionaire, along with the Uranium One Russian relationship of Hillary Clinton in a pay-for-play-excahnge of illicit money transfers to the Clintons for approving the sale of America’s strategic Uranium assets to the Russians — marks the high water mark, of the tide of corruption the Clintons & the Democratic party have engaged into, and that guarantees their title as the Evil party to be good for ever. Seeing as Al-Waleed Bin Talal, a primary shareholder of Citigroup, Facebook, and Twitter, was arrested recently for corruption — it would seem that the Saudi monarchy is ahead of the United States in combating corruption.

Meanwhile back in America we now have discovered that the Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose brother John Podesta, led the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, is a registered foreign agent on the fundamentalist jihad Islamic Saudi government’s payroll. We now finally know that the Podesta lobbying firm was created by Tony and John Podesta in 1988, and is still to this day receiving a retainer of $140,000 a month from the Saudi government. This is a totalitarian government that beheads nonviolent dissidents, uses torture to extract forced confessions, doesn’t allow women to vote, let alone to even drive, and bombs schools, hospitals, and residential neighborhoods in neighboring Yemen where it exerts it’s influence. But during the electoral season, the Saudis also wanted to exert their influence in America and thus they channeled billions of dollars though the Podesta group. They channeled billions of dollars in slush funds, in corporate funds, and in illegal PAC funds, that were “invested” onto the Hillary Clinton campaign aims, on behalf of the Saudi influencers and meddlers of the American elections. Yet, the Podesta Group’s March 2016 filing, as required under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, shows that Tony Podesta himself oversees the Saudi account, at the same time, Tony Podesta is also a top campaign contributor and bundler for Hillary Clinton. So while the one brother John Podesta, run the Clinton presidential campaign of 2016, the other brother Tony Podesta helped fund it, with capital that came from the Saudi elites, and helped guide billions of dollars in support of the Clinton campaign. A lot of that cash came from the corrupt Saudi Al-Waleed prince who was a personal friend to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and acted as their Saudi “Illegal Cash Bundler.” He is the man who now rests in jail in Riyadh, as due payment for his corrupt services to the losing candidate of the American elections, and along the way fostering corruption in his own country as well.

Whoever said that elections have consequences, must have been right about that…

Elections have consequences for the supporters of the loser too, especially in far away places, because these ingrates who have benefited from America should learn the lesson to not interfere with their globalist corruption in our elections. Consequences will be swift but in America John and Tony Podesta still remain at large. Maybe because they have been heavyweights in the DC insider swamp as politicos for decades, or maybe because American Lady Justice is blind and she takes a long time to get to her intended place — but that she will do in proper time. Now John Podesta, who had also served as President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, also founded the influential DC think tank “Center for American Progress, and was special privy counselor to President Obama. Tony Podesta was dubbed by the New York Times as “one of Washington’s biggest players“ whose clients “are going to get a blueprint for how to succeed in official Washington.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 7.09.49 PM

The two willy Podesta brothers seem to have no problem mixing their roles into the same pot, and attempting to fix American Elections, as we see that Tony Podesta, a top Clinton campaign fundraiser, bundler of illicit money, and behind the scenes PAC steersman — also assisted his brother, John Podesta, who at the time was the Hillary Clinton campaign chairman for her 2016 presidential bid.

The Saudis hired the Podesta Group first in 2015, because they were getting bad press over the heavy children collateral damage, and civilian casualties, from the Saudi war incursions, the siege of towns, and the constant air bombings & aerial strikes into Yemen, all taking place amidst the Saudi crackdown on political dissidents at home that included sentencing blogger Raif Badawi to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for “insulting Islam.” Since then, Tony Podesta’s fingerprints have been all over Saudi Arabia’s white washing efforts in Washington DC. Efforts to paint the Saudis clean, such as when Saudi Arabia executed the prominent nonviolent Shia dissident Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, causing protests throughout the Shia world and inflaming sectarian divisions, The New York Times noted that the Podesta Group provided the newspaper of record, with a Saudi commentator who defended the execution. The Podesta-Clinton-Saudi connection should be seen in light of the recent media exposes revealing the taudry pay-to-play nature of the Clinton Foundation. Top on the list of foreign donors to the Clinton foundation is Saudi Arabia, which contributed upwards of $25 million to the CGI, money that ultimately lined the Clinton pockets… But one must ask the important question: “What did the Saudis get in return for their largesse and access?” We don’t certainly know but we can surmise that access to the corridors of power is what they got, and a sympathetic ear from the Obama administration when the restricted armament sales to an Islamic terrorist sponsoring state came up for review. Wikileaks revealed a 2009 cable by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying: “More needs to be done since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, and other terrorist groups.” Yet in an apparent about face, Ms Hillary Clinton who was then Secretary of State, instead of sanctioning the Saudis, she did the opposite. Indeed it was right then that Secretary Hillary Clinton, authorized enormous quantities of advanced weapons systems, including bombs, F-15 airplanes, and missiles to be sold to the Saudi Arabian regime. The icing on this cake was the signaled tacit and quiet agreement given by the Obama-Clinton administration for the Saudis to finance and to built Ten Thousand mosques across America. And thus came the time that on Christmas Eve of 2011, Hillary Clinton and her closest aides including the Saudi spy Huma Abedin, celebrated a massive $29.4 billion sale to the Saudis of over 80, eighty F-15 fighter jets additionally configured for bombing raids, manufactured by Boeing, a company which coincidentally contributed $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation’s CGI black hole. In a chain of enthusiastic emails, an aide exclaimed that it was “not a bad Christmas present.” However, methinks that the Yemenis at the receiving end of the Saudi bombings from those F-15s, the “Madame Secretary” gave them, would not be so enthusiastic about the Christmas message that Ms Clinton hand delivered to them, and to their dead children.

Yet in the aftermath of this disclosure, the Clinton foundation said that if Hillary Clinton were elected, the foundation would stop taking foreign donations. But they never said anything about no longer taking campaign contributions from people who are paid by the Saudi government to whitewash its image, like the Podesta Group receiving money from prince A-Waleed and all other beneficiaries of the Clinton ruthless pay-4-play campaign of terror. If Hillary Clinton wanted to be even considered as a woman-symbol for human rights and women’s empowerment, her campaign should have made some effort to live up to the values she claimed to be representing, but we all know that crooked Hillary misrepresented everything and that’s why she lost this election. People knew her to be the most corrupt person that ever run for the Office of the Presidency and came out to vote in droves everywhere that mattered.

As the story of the massive Saudi corruption purge develops in Saudi Arabia, Americans should also anticipate that these arrests, and the subsequent investigations, will implicate Podesta, Obama, and Ms Clinton, in major ways. So much so that the current investigations into the Russian interference with the Trump team, will result in investigations of the Obama-Clinton improprieties by the special counsel Robert Mueller, as he encompasses the Obama and Clinton’s financial ties, and their dubious political alliances, with both Saudi Arabia and Russia alike.

This is what Donald Trump tweeted from his Twitter account back on December 15th of 2015 and that today seems almost prophetic… @realDonaldTrump: “Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016” (7:53 PM – 11 Dec 2015)

Obviously the stench of corruption this Clinton-AlWaleed-Election meddling scandal entails, is sufficient to gag any self respecting patriot, but action must be taken in order to protect our future Elections, from just this kind of interference.

So if we want to avoid a re-run of this movie, equally to objecting to the foreign billionaires from interfering with our elections, we should stop the local Billionaires from also interfering unjustly with our elections.

One man one vote is what Democracy demands.

Women too. One woman one vote.

And young adults too, as allowed by the Constitution.

But nowhere in the Constitution do we see the right of Corporations, or Super Pacs, or the slush funds of the Democratic party, or of the mega foreign donors, or of New Bourgeoisie from the liberal classes, masquerading as multiple voters, behind the Hillary Clinton campaign of all brokenness — as the New Saviors of the country.

Screen Shot 2018-01-20 at 2.42.55 PM

Indeed the Supreme Court ought to have heard arguments about whether these huge and gigantic foreign to Democracy, direct and indirect campaign donations, constitute common-law bribery, and there is no reason not to ask again the question of the Corporate personhood, with its inbuilt bias against Citizen voters and against minority candidates, and minority, and third parties.

However, the Supreme Court, is unalloyed in it’s reticence to take up these questions now, and thus it appears that all these and many other undemocratic exercises of wealth, power, and intimidation options, are likely to be exercised again in 2018, and in the pivotal Presidential Elections of 2020.

That is unless the entire system is challenged in a serious way.

And the only serious challenge to the Electoral Status Quo would be the announcement by the United Nations, or the international community, of sending a politically neutral electoral monitoring force, in order to supervise the next American elections.

Of course this is not what I am advocating — in my humble opinion — yet it is needed. Needed is a strong word, but having seen the deterioration of our political dialogue into a McCarthyism akin to the Red Menace, with all of the Mass Media crying like Rachel Maddow “Russia Russia Russia” every thirty seconds. Because of that polarizing extremism that allows the evil party of the Clintonites absolving their adherents of any crime and rewarding them for literally killing their opponents as the Seth Rich case proved. So something drastic needs to be done urgently, lest we erode the People’s confidence in the Democratic electoral process even further than what we now have. And much like it’s used elsewhere an electoral monitoring force of foreign UN observers “Rapporteurs” as yours truly has served in many African elections — now might be what the Doctor ordered for the American ones too.

And that force of electoral monitoring reporters, or “rapporteurs” is the “something that needs to be done” lest we allow those who want to rig our elections again, as we fester in the sewer of electoral mistrust, deceit, and discrimination against large classes of voters that the persistent mass media rallying cry of, Russia, Russia, Russia, wants to disenfranchise.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 7.57.56 PM

Of course for those in the “know” the Mass Media’s rallying cry of “Russia – Russia – Russia” echoes the Democrats’ constant cry of “Russian interference, Russian interference, Russian interference” ad infinitum. And this is obviously a smoke screen that the Democrats use, in order to cover up their own foreign interference through their Clinton campaign for President in 2016. And now that they have been “discovered” to interfere and collude with the Russians and with the Deep State — they now want to throw the electoral result, our very Republic, and our Voting system, “under the bus” by crying “foul” and falling down clutching their “private parts” after swinging a kick at the shin of the opposing goal scorer. The soccer analogy is apt for those of us who like the game of footie as the best game practiced by all people around the world.

In typical footie fashion, the soccer player that rolls onto the green moaning and crying foul, typically belongs to the losing side, trying to get the attention of the crowd to mask his duplicity, to fake a foul, and to maybe gain the Referee’s sympathy for the whistle ruling, that will give the ball to his team to execute a penalty kick.

It’s all just politics. Nothing more to it than that. And yet somehow your Life depends upon it.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 7.59.55 PM

Similar to that sports metaphor, Ms Clinton’s camp of revanchists and apologists in the Media — seeing that their unholy efforts to rig the American elections of 2016 backfired and the people hated them for their insidious ploys — they enlisted their supporters amongst the unaccountable corporations, to become the “Referee” of the Electoral result and to force upon us a different outcome as if Elections don’t mater.

Of course the disdain of the Corporatists towards the simple people and their electoral choices is abundantly clear.

All these asshat libtards that think that they are better than You, and that your vote shouldn’t matter as much as theirs, simply because they smoke plenty of weed and in their fragile minds and stoner dreams think that they know better since they happen to work for the Evil Empire of Microsoft, or for Yahoo, or for Facebook, or for Tweeter, as MicroSerfs, the indentured slaves of software.

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.12.54 PM

This “serfing class” of well paid slaves, cannot even fathom the idea of Liberty because of their personal condition, of being chained facing the wall of the cave. They can’t even understand the idea of Freedom judging everyone else by their living inside the “Cave paradox” so that all those who somehow free themselves up, and see the Light of Day, are immediately becoming their enemy and need to be dehumanized and killed.

And that is how the demonization of the true Liberal Spirit has occurred in America today. The mass media rallying cry of Russia, Russia, Russia, is the signal of attack, for the armies of the enslaved “serfing class” of modern slaves, that are the so called “Liberals” that stoke the “machine” of Oppression that the Democratic party represents in it’s very DNA, that harkens to the plantation days of the past.

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.14.23 PM

And that attack signal is leveled against anyone whose opinion is different, or who does not believe in the Orthodoxy of the Democratic Illiberal “serfing class,” or if simply happened to dislike crooked Hillary and her army of automatons, rigging the elections and then blaming someone else for their malfeasance, trying to cover up their own crimes.

And as this “serfing class” army of illiberal leftists attempt a “Coup” against our Republic, and have the means and the experience to cheat, to rig, and to steal elections — this is an urgent appeal from myself and from a large group of respected Americans for such an international Elections monitoring force to be brought into being with America to protect the 2020 elections.

I am seriously asking for that because we have less than a year to refuse the front-loaded, bought-and-paid-for pseudo-mid-term-elections of 2018, that is being prepared to be served upon us.

And because already, the primary process for the 2020 election has been short-circuited, rigged by the same crooked Democratic party apparatchiks, and having it’s result pre-determned, as it now clearly seems. And as we all know that the 2020 presidential “debates” will be rigged again. Same as they were rigged last time in 2016, with Dona Brazile, and her crew of excrement from CNN giving all the questions in advance, to their “little darling” crooked Hillary, and then having her answers being validated by the same unelected and unaccountable corporate interests that are the Mass Media channels of television, declaring her the “Winner” even before the votes were cast for the Elections.

Apparently the people’s votes don’t matter because these unaccountable corporations and their “serfing class” all in unison singing like a boys choir, “Russia, Russia, Russia” till kingdom comes.

Indeed rigged elections may be true even if Donald Trump tweets about them in the middle of the night…

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.42.37 PM

These same things may be true even if Bernie Sanders says them, and the inescapable fact is that the 2016 presidential election has so far been a rigged affair, bearing more resemblance to a plebiscite in some banana republic than to anything recognizable as a democratic contest.

However, the entry of Trump as the insurgent candidate could not itself be part of the pre-arrangement and the manipulation, only as it appears that the Democrats wanted to use him as a stalking horse and they got outmaneuvered by his genius in closing the deal with the Voters.

For all other concerns it was a rigged election that the Clinton Democrats wanted to handle as they had handled Bernie Sanders when they stiched-up the old man in a bag of his own liking.

Yet, because it appears that we have here a loyal Beltway veteran, grown in the dark and the manure, of the DC swamp, and well known to the powers that be, as someone absolutely reliable as he had already shown himself to be quite willing to play the game of slush funds, PACs, slick advertising campaigns, Washington lobbyists, and Political campaigns, with Democratic party funds, and an operational agreement with the Democratic party that spelled out his position to simply energize the youth and then retreat into obscurity.

There’s your designated dissident of “Our Revolution” fame, sorry we left that out of the mix when we were telling you who the candidates would be and what their “issues” would look like. Just for fun, why not set her up against Donald Trump, so that even the supposed outsider faction can replicate the only allowable division, between machine-produced clones on the one hand, and nutball narcissistic tycoons on the other.

It was only the Lincoln party, a genuine foe of oligarchy, with our reasoned case for the public financing of campaigns, that really does seem like a quixotic effort to our consensual mass media television channels and the obliging press, along with the globalist Social Media. And since we don’t manifest any crazy nostalgia for the icons of the past, besides the Great Emnacipator, Abraham Lincoln — we are given a wide pass.

The defeat of the rather tepid initiative about campaign finance US House, and Senate, also marked the eclipse of any remaining hope for a fair or open race the next time around when we look for a new President. Take note that the “Democratic Fix” is in, and that the special interests will pretend to have an election, and you and I, if we choose to do so — we can pretend to vote in it thinking that our votes count for something.

Sp the only recourse that I can see is an appeal to the international community and the United Nations to send us a bunch of accredited observers, who will monitor the presidential elections of these United States in 2020. I am not asking anything for 2018, because we need to experience the abuses of 2018 in order to put our pride aside, and openly unafraid, come out and ask for the UN’s help…

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.09.46 PM

And that’s a really good vision for 2020, that will surely come sooner, rather than later.

ON that note, I want to wish Good Luck to all of us, no matter what side of the political spectrum we occupy, hoping that we can become united for a moment in time, in our joint pursuit of Fair Elections for the maintenance of our Democratic Republic.

So, in conclusion, I want to wish you all, Good Luck and God Speed.

And God Bless these United States of America.

Yours,
Dr Churchill

PS:

We all know how the United States loves nothing better than to certify other countries’ ballots as “free and fair” and perhaps this is the time to apply the same medicine to itself.

So there can hardly be any principled objection to a delegation of monitors from democratic nations taking up position, pens in hand, as America makes its “choice” in 2018, but especially in 2020.

Indeed, given the awful power of the United States Presidency, and of the US Congress over the affairs of other nations, and indeed of the Globe, it is surprising that this hasn’t been suggested already by other notable observers of the corrupt electoral systems that many states and Counties have in place.

And for convenience and support, here is the dirty dozen of questions that the United Nations, and the international monitors would have to consider, before validating the 2020 American presidential election:

1) Has there already been the open purchase of votes, as seemed to be the acknowledged case in the various caucuses by the Clinton campaign against Bernie Sanders all across America?

2) How has the response been on the revelation of the “open purchase of candidates” as proven by the immense and, regarding the source of donations, rather obscure funding, amassed by the Democratic party, by the Secretary Clinton supporting PACs, by the Podesta group, and by her Billionaire globalist foreign and domestic friends seeking to influence the US elections well beyond their vote?

3) Are there restrictions placed on the entry of third-party or independent candidates? Have these restrictions been imposed by a collusion of the existing parties?

4) Do there exist impediments to the placing of minority parties on ballots?

5) How can we overcome those obstacles to the development of a multiparty Democracy?

6) Do there exist impediments to voter registration?

7) How can we overcome these obstacles to voters?

8) Is access to the media fairly apportioned among candidates and parties, irrespective of wealth?

9) Do the laws barring convicted felons from voting constitute discrimination against any minority group?

10) Does the two party only allotment of federal matching funds constitute a subsidy to the duopoly that has been sharing the power for the last one hundred and fifty years?

11) What can States do to overcome these angularities in our pursuit of a more perfect Union and a better Democracy?

12) What can the Federal government do, in order to overcome these angularities in our pursuit of a more perfect Union and a better Democracy?

The above dirty dozen of questions need to be answered fully before the International Elections Monitors and Rapporteurs can do their job in an adequate manner.

MLK for breakfast…

Early morning Monday the 15th of January, I gave a speech at the University of Washington, and reminded the students that our Life is only as good as the Service we offer to others…

Many students in the audience agreed, and joined the Lincoln Party in order to serve the poor, the infirm, and those enslaved in mental or physical slavery, and help them liberate their life.

Screen Shot 2018-01-15 at 12.56.02 PM

And in the process I spoke about how when you serve others, you really serve yourself first and foremost. Especially when you do not stop speaking in the face of evil as Dr King reminds us every year through his Life’s example…

Martin Luther King, Jr life’s example was his vision for All Americans to reach the state of equality of Civil Rights, where “Equal protection under the law” could be enjoyed by all. Indeed since “All Men Are Created Equal” as out Constitution claims, Dr King explained brilliantly in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” the cause for equality in front of the eyes of the LAW.

It is this letter from the Birmingham City jail, that I studied again, these past few days, as I was preparing for my speech at my Alma Matter, the University of Washington, that I had to deliver on MLK day, to complete my humble and small contribution to the “Day of Service” and to the nationwide effort to teach the young People of America to live in harmony with each other, and to do this through the way of service to each other. And the way of service to other people, as it turns out, it also leads to the Lord, whose people rejoice, as Dr Martin Luther King worked, preached, and enjoyed, living in Grace filled Life, in the eyes of the Lord.

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 9.44.42 PM

Dr King asked for a simple thing: “Equal Protection under the law for ALL Americans.” And this has largely been delivered to all Americans today. But as a Society we are far from perfect, yet we have to keep united.

E Pluribus Unum… and Equality Under the Law for All Americans… that will surely make us a more perfect Union.

Heavy words, coming from a heavy man, representing a heavy legacy, that to this day carries us forth. And that is pretty much the essence of my remarks that I delivered on this gathering of young minds on a wintry yet sunny day in Seattle’s most beautiful University Campus at the UW.

Yet, for Dr King and the same for this writer, public speaker, and ethical politician — as we all know — “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” in America, and as Martin Luther King was assassinated for his labors to free all of us from the bondage of racism and inequality, so have myself suffered grave hurt, pain and brain damage from an enraged group of leftist Antifa mob, that attempted my assassination, inside the headquarters of Microsoft where I was delivering a speech.

See it all here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_75RzVfbAM&list=PLqnp3V-4rLcxy2sL2D4qALWkHvdtKQ81q

This all happened on February 28th of this past year 2017, and I am still suffering from the blunt head trauma, abut also from the lawlessness and there corruption that permeates the Redmond Police Department that has not to this day interviewed or charged my attackers with this dastardly crime, right in the heart of this wealthy suburb of Seattle, the little company town named Redmond, WA, that is made up of ultra rich liberals, the MicroSerfs, that disdain Liberty, Free people, and the Law. And by the way, they also really hate our President, our Republic, and anyone who thinks differently than their little weed addled minds can fathom…

So when I see how my work has suffered this past year, I recall the words of the wife of the slain civil rights leader Dr King, Coretta, who plainly said that her main concern was that her husband’s work would be carried on, after his death, and she advised all the people to hold the peace. Against her advise and against the peace marchers and the words of Dr King, sudden and spontaneous rioting erupted in most all major American cities. Following Dr King’s assassination, all hell broke loose in America, as Coretta rightly feared that the nonviolence King had preached, would be lost in the embers of the fire-breathing looters, vengeful attackers, and rioters.

It was a bad time for America, and yet the only city that kept the Peace, amongst the major cities, it was Indianapolis, where no riots were reported. maybe this was simply because another enlightened person spoke to the people and that was the brother of the slain President JFK, who went in the midst of the African-American’s ghetto defying the Police advise for his safety, and spoke about King’s assignation more eloquently than any other time he had spoken about anything in his Life.

And that’s how the Peace held, that night in Indianapolis…

You can see and hear RFK speaking in Indianapolis about Dr King’s assassination here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoKzCff8Zbs

The Sunday following M. L. King’s assassination, his wife Loretta spoke to the congregation of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where she implored the people to continue the peaceful movement for civil rights, and to continue to act as he would have done, for all the causes he believed in.

She said this: “Our concern now is that his work does not die. He gave his life for the poor of the world — the garbage workers of Memphis and the peasants of Vietnam. Nothing could hurt him more than that man could attempt no way to solve problems except through violence. He gave his life in search of a more excellent way, a more effective way, a creative way rather than a destructive way.”

“We intend to go on in search of that way, and I hope that you who loved and admired him would join us in fulfilling his dream.”

“The day that Negro people and others in bondage are truly free, on the day want is abolished, on the day wars are no more, on that day I know my husband will rest in a long-deserved peace.”

At that time, King’s activism had taken a turn from his campaign for civil rights in the American South — to a much more radical PEACE stand, one aimed against the war in Vietnam and against inequality, and vast poverty.

King at the moment was refusing to choose between Civil Rights for African-Americans and Peace for the American and the Vietnamese people, and that alienated all the Democratic party Politicians who were complicit in the war along with the Southern Democrat the President LBJ…

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.35.59 PM

Yet this Dr King did, in full conscience that he will be blackballed because for years, M. L. King had been troubled by the war in Vietnam, and had raised the issue privately in all his conversations with the Democratic President Lyndon Johnson, but he realized that nobody heard him. And as the conflict dragged on, and as American men came back in body bags, or broken to bits, Dr King felt he had no choice but to publicly denounce the war.

So in an April 1967 speech at Riverside Church in New York City, Dr King, the renown civil rights leader didn’t speak about Civil Rights, but he spoke against the War in Indo-China, and publicly denounced the American involvement in the Vietnam war and its extensions in Cambodia, and Laos.

He had this to say: “This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love,” he warned. “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

Naturally many advisors and friends, and all of his colleagues in Dr King’s inner circle, warned him against making that speech, and against publicly campaigning to Stop the war in Vietnam, but he wanted to go on. Their argument was that Johnson had risked his neck for the African-American community on issues like civil rights, health care, and welfare, and for Dr King to now start publicly condemning LBJ’s foreign policy — would irreparably harm the relationship between the Civil Rights activists and the President of the United States.

Yet King was adamant by saying: “We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls “enemy” for no document from human hands can make these humans any less our brothers.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 9.36.46 PM

King reserved a section of his remarks to also address his friendly critics who wanted to preserve the relationship with LBJ, because Dr King labeled the war an “enemy of the poor” saying that its budget was draining anti-poverty programs; and he also pointed out that it was hypocritical for him to preach nonviolence to activists at home, while watching his government reject that principle abroad.

But ultimately King said, that his stance came from “personal moral conviction” and from his “devoted Christian beliefs.”

As he explained: “Beyond the calling of race or nation or creed, there is this vocation of sonship, and brotherhood. Because I believe that the Father is deeply concerned, especially for His suffering, helpless, and outcast children, I come tonight to speak for them. This I believe to be the privilege and the burden of all of us who deem ourselves bound by allegiances and loyalties, which are broader and deeper than nationalism and which go beyond our nation’s self-defined goals and positions. We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls “enemy” for no document from human hands can make these humans any less our brothers.”

And that is when Dr King was vehemently attacked form the Democrats whose leader was the sitting President LBJ who had enlarged the war in Vietnam. The virulent backlash from the liberal establishment that had once praised King for his civil rights campaign, came as hard, and as fast, as King’s friends & allies had initially feared, when they advised him to keep quiet about the Democrat’s dirty war in Vietnam and Indochina.

Among the first, it was the New York Times editorial board, and the NYT journalists, who lambasted Dr King, for linking the war in Vietnam, to the struggles of civil rights, and poverty alleviation, within these United States… The NYT the Democrat establishment voice, attacked Dr King, by saying that it was “too facile a connection” and that he was doing a “disservice” to both causes. It concluded that there “are no simple answers to the war in Vietnam, or to racial injustice in this country.” The Washington Post another Democratic mouthpiece, attacked the good Doctor through their editorial board by writing that Dr King had “diminished his usefulness to his cause, his country and his people.” A political cartoon in the Kansas City Star, depicted the civil rights movement as a young black girl crying and begging for her drunk father Dr King, who is consuming the contents of a bottle labeled “Anti-Vietnam.”

In all, 168 newspapers denounced him the next day. Johnson ended his formal relationship with King. “What is that goddamned nigger preacher doing to me?” Johnson reportedly remarked after the Riverside speech. “We gave him the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we gave him the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we gave him the war on poverty. What more does he want?”

The whole of the Mass Establishment Media, and the Democratic party, starting form the President Lyndon Johnson and going down to the state level and even amongst the Dixiecrats and the Southern Democrats, all aligned with the Northern Democratic party to smear Dr King as a disturbing anti-war agitator and as someone to be “done with” as they often described him…

Even the African-American establishment, fearful of President Lyndon Johnson’s reaction, and also aligned with the Democratic party also distanced itself from Dr King, and attacked him as a Fool on a Fool’s errand…

The NAACP under the leadership of Roy Wilkins refused to oppose the war and explicitly condemned Dr King’s effort to link the peace and civil rights movements into a powerful alliance, and instead they disowned Dr King…

Whitney Young, the leader of the National Urban League, warned that “Johnson needs a consensus. If we are not with him on Vietnam, then he is not going to be with us on civil rights.”

Jackie Robinson, the celebrated African-American baseball player and civil rights advocate, wrote to Johnson two weeks after King’s speech to distance himself from the civil rights leader by saying: “While I am certain your faith has been shaken by demonstrations against the Viet Nam war, I hope the actions of any one individual does not make you feel as Vice President Humphrey does, that Dr. King’s stand will hurt the civil rights movement. It would not be fair to the thousands of our Negro fighting men who are giving their lives because they believe, in most instances, that our Viet Nam stand is just.”

Additionally most all of the Christian and people of faith, who were donors to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, wrote to Dr King in order to announce that they were pulling out their support, and will never support him in the future, because of his dangerous path to oppose the war…

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 6.59.44 PM

Imagine all the News Media, all the newspapers, all the television stations and Channels, all the Powerful Democrats, the President and the Vice President of this country, the whole of the Democratic party, all the Governors and the legislatures, and all those powerful establishment figures and financiers — all being arrayed against Dr King because he dared to oppose the War in Vietnam…

No wonder I truly believe it is their culpability that led to his death. It is as if they all collectively put him on their gun sights, then pulled the trigger that struck the cordite, that caused the explosion that released the bullet that struck Dr King’s heart and pierced his body through and through.

Dr King was killed by a Mass Media and Democratic party execution in public. An otherwise described as an “Assassination by Smear” following a tremendous character assassination, the likes of which we hadn’t seen until the current frenzy of the Media seeking blood of this new champion of the people that sits in the oval office today…

History repeats itself, except every time it gets a little worse for wear.

Yes, Dr King was literally and figuratively assassinated by the Democrats who wanted to continue the war in Vietnam and Indochina, in a wholesale way, for their own continued corporate profits of the military industrial complex machine, and for the personal interests that satisfied the Agenda of the Democratic party and the bloody Texan and Democratic party Machiavellian operative LBJ, who already had the blood of the most popular President Jack Kennedy, on his hands.

And that is why Dr Martin Luther King also “had to go” because not only he spoke eloquently against the Vietnam war, but he was a great leader, and intellectually strong and able to connect the dots for all the people to understand the corruption of the Democratic party and the evils of the War since as he said: “Injustice anywhere, is injustice everywhere.”

Dr King was a man of peace, and when he saw Peace destroyed in Vietnam, he understood that Peace was destroyed back at home in the United States too. And since he took it upon himself to speak everywhere, and anywhere, and because in his talks to thousands of young demonstrators, he stirred up amazingly vivid passions, he had to be silenced. He “had to go” lest the Democrats lose the next elections.

Indeed, the evil and calculating people amongst the leadership of the Democratic party, sought to assassinate Dr King several times. Assassinations were ordered and held back, such as the one time when he spoke on the United Nations Plaza on April 15th of 1967 in New York City and was sighted by the assassin’s gun scopes. At the last moment this plot was foiled, and the Democratic assassins thought better of it, and rehashed their plan, for when the circumstances appeared better. They determined to kill Dr King in the South, in order to shift the blame to others, and they did just that — playing the peace card all over again, and causing division and discord by employing the race identity card in Dr King’s assassination, and then causing there mass riots in all American cities that burned down the ghettos of the Black American  communities, and further inviting oppression by the Police…

But that’s another story of why the Democrats are still exploiting the Black Americans and the Minorities in the same way as the days of plantation and by always sowing the seeds of fear in their hearts — they maintain their control over the “Slaves” and their descendants.

Yet as Dr King always said: “It Is the Truth that will set us All, Free”

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 7.09.46 PM

Dr King was well aware of all the Democratic party Evil and their involvement in the creation of the KKK, and their desire to continue the plantation politics of the days of Slavery —  and that is why he was a staunch Republican.

And because Dr King would never submit to the Democratic party’s plantation politics, he identified fully with the party of the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln. And indeed he was hated by the Democrats for that, and as the anti-war demonstrators all over the country were brewing up, with all the young people who were protesting the war in Vietnam seeking new uncorrupted leaders, and splintering away from the corrupt Democratic party of LBJ — Dr King became one of the Leaders of the March called the “Spring Mobilization against the war in Vietnam” and thus the race to kill him intensified…

And as he further alienated the Democratic party, the Democratic liberal establishment became vengeful, and more and more sought to silence him for good, because Dr King had become a serious threat to them when they found out that he planned to mobilize mass demonstrations, and civil disobedience, aimed not only at his old foes in the segregationist Democratic party and KK weaponized Southern Dixiecrat States, but also against the Democratic party politicians north of the Mason Dixon line, who he correctly believed were failing to act to stop endemic poverty. And because through his campaign against the Vietnam War, Dr King had already become the most hated person by the Democratic party, he now became their assassination target, because they wanted to shut him up for good, as they saw that there was not another way to stop him, or corrupt him, or even embrace him. Of course as we saw, they attempted to discredit him, they smeared him, they slandered him, they painted him as a dishonest stupid man, as a philanderer, and in general, they painted him “black” in their evil ways through a vast campaign of character assassination that predated the physical assassination of Dr Martin Luther King, by the deep Democratic State, the Mass media, and the Establishment, that had earlier killed the most popular President too…

As it turns out, he didn’t care too much about his Life, because he was not a fearful person as all the Lord’s servants can be rather brave. And indeed in August of 1967, Dr King told the SCLC that he was calling for activists to “dislocate” northern cities with nonviolent civil disobedience campaigns, demanding action on federal aid. He said he would consider tactics, such as school boycotts, blocking plant gates with unemployed African-Americans, and mass sit-ins in federal buildings — and that although this was a dangerous policy that would elicit a strong response from the Federal government — he was willing to take the risk associated with that campaign.

It was then that all hell broke loose, as the New York Times, that was in the past, a seeming ally of King’s during the time of his civil disobedience campaign in the South — now was furious and turned against him in a violent way and they denounced him as a dangerous agitator and a Communist sympathizer. Two days after King’s SCLC address, the New York Times editorial board called King’s ideas a “formula for discord” that will bring the country to the brink of Civil War. The so called “newspaper of record” the Democratic Establishment New York Times, also complained that there is an “inherent contradiction in Dr King’s summons to the Negroes to act “peacefully but forcefully to cripple the operations of an oppressive society” and that he aims for Civil War. The Editors also falsely wrote at the front page of the New York Times, accusing that “Dr King himself has acknowledged that nonviolence is losing its appeal” and that “Once the spark of massive law-defiance is applied in the present overheated atmosphere, the potential for disaster becomes overwhelming” but that is apparently what King wants to do…

This inflammatory character assassination and slandering against Dr King was completely false, because MLK was absolutely never, an advocate for any kind of violence. He studied, practiced, and believed in the Ghandian form of Non-Violence called Ahimsa. He was a man of pure Peace, and he preached Love, not hate, first and foremost.

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 6.40.23 PM

And although the Democrats, and all those on the left, both during King’s time, and more so today, used and continue to use violence — Dr King spent all of his life trying to prevent the rioting, and the violent unrest. That proves that his very nature was exactly the opposite of what the New York Times falsely claimed that they were so concerned about in Dr King’s pivot of the civil rights movement, against poverty, and against the war in Vietnam. To back my point, we see that back in February of 1968, Dr King, warned the people in his speeches, during his tour of the South, and in his tour through Alabama, that “increased rioting could lead to a right-wing takeover” of our country and that the movement has no right to give them that excuse, so they should always stay peaceful and peaceable. In his speech, he also pointed to the segregationist governor George Wallace, and his Presidential bid, by saying this: “Every time a riot develops, it actually only helps George Wallace” to become President.

Later, when Dr King was speaking about his plan to take the poverty protests to the doorsteps of the Democratic National Conventions — he portrayed his path of Ghandian nonviolence, as the golden middle path, of salvation, between acquiescence, and violence. He went on to say this: “We need an alternative to riots, and to timid supplication” and the “Middle Way” is Civil Disobedience and NonViolence.

But at that moment, any kind of tolerance for Civil Rights Disobedience, and peaceful assembly, had ended at the Mason-Dixon Line, because of the Establishment Democrats that by now really hated Dr King, and saw him as enemy Number One.

MLK understood that, and he launched the Poor People’s Campaign, aimed at providing good jobs, housing, and a decent standard of living to all Americans, and in his Mountaintop speech he correctly forecast that he will not be amongst the living for very much longer, but he was planning a path for his people to follow even after he would be gone.

He was indeed a prophet and he knew the hour for him to rejoin the Lord had come.

Indeed I am reminded of Dr King today, because more than 40 years before American protesters took to the streets of New York City, and Washington Square, and Wall Street, and many other locales and city centers, to “occupy” spaces in order to protest inequality — Dr King had proposed a massive tent encampment in Washington, D.C. to demand action on poverty.

That was the heart stoping moment, and when suddenly Dr King’s Life came to an end, from the bullet of a crazed Democrat who was whipped up into a frenzy from all the hate mongering against Dr King from the popular Mass media, the all powerful newspapers, and all the TV channels. Identity politics and the race card played by the Democratic Party killed Dr King directly and indirectly.

This indictment stands firmly as we have observed how the Democratic party deals with it’s enemies, time and again, and we see this old story playing out again today, in a similar way, when we observe what the Democrats and the Mass Media Establishment, attempt to do today by turning the fragile minds of the deluded Democrats and those foolish enough to believe them, against a popular People’s President.

Back in the Day of Dr King, all his process of fighting poverty, ended when Dr King was assassinated during his campaign to organize the garbage & sanitation workers in Tennessee, to protest poverty, and inequality. It all stopped, because in April of that year, and just before he was able to set up the encampment of the garbage collectors, and well before he had organized his fellows and his leadership team — he was felled by a registered Democrats’ assassin bullet at the door of his motel room.

His widow Coretta Scott King, along with the simple people of the whole nation — cried and mourned him, and when she along with civil rights leader Ralph David Abernathy, finally gathered their wits — they attempted to go ahead with the plan to create what they called the “Resurrection City” for the garbage haulers, the homeless, and the destitute poor…

It was not to be.

The only camp that was created, was the “Resurrection City camp” that was already planned by Dr King, and that alone lasted only six weeks, until the time that the police under Democratic controlled administration, attacked the camp, and then moved in, to shut it down, and with harsh violence evicted all of its inhabitants, burned their possessions, and they covered their ugly acts, by pointing to three sporadic acts of provocational hooliganism, as justification for their violent war on the homeless people. This was similar to what the Democratic Mayor of Seattle did to the homeless city of Seattle under the pretense of law and Order. Of course this was the pedophile Mayor of Seattle enacting this ugliness in 2017, but the facts are the same.

People were horrified, saying that the crushing of the “Resurrection City Camp” was worse than any of the police violence they saw in the South: “It was worse than anything I saw in Mississippi or Alabama,” he said. “You don’t shoot tear gas into an entire city because two or three hooligans are throwing rocks.” is what Andrew Young said at the time…

And that is how Dr King stopped speaking against the duplicity of the Democrats in their search for votes…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Following King’s assassination, the mood in America shifted quickly, and Dr King was remembered fondly once again…

President Johnson, who had terminated all communication with Dr King, after the latter spoke against the War in Vietnam — praised him.

Indeed LBJ, who had cursed King’s name — now went so far as issuing a statement saying the “Heart of America is heavy, the spirit of America weeps.”

Following Dr King’s death, Georgia’s segregationist Gov. Lester Maddox, a frequent critic of King, even begrudgingly allowed Georgia’s flag to fly at half mast.

Bobby Kennedy, who once authorized the wiretaps of Dr King’s phones, attended the slain Civil Right leader’s funeral and he spoke eloquently and bravely in a eulogy to be remembered for ever, by saying: “He gave his life for the poor of the world — the garbage workers of Memphis, and the peasants of Vietnam.”

And that’s how Dr King’s vision, his purpose, and his work, were reconciled for the rest of time for All Americans…

Seeing this beautiful full moon that we all saw these last few days, I was reminded of my speech a decade ago in front of the young future astronauts from the NASA AeroSpace students, in an event in Seattle’s Museum of Flight where I said to considerable applause that:

“We must get back to the Moon — soonest — even if only to appreciate the beauty of this Earth we call Home.”

To this day, I still strongly believe that we are best able to see the true beauty of the Earth from afar.

We can truly feel the longing for this eternal home of the Human Race, from far out in Space.

And maybe we can also define the purpose of our existence better when we are far from Home…

So onwards Christian soldiers, to the Moon we Go…

As the legendary Moon shot mission brought us so much to be grateful and to recall:

“When I was the last man to walk on the Moon in December 1972, I stood in the blue darkness and looked in awe at the Earth from the lunar surface… What I saw was almost too beautiful to grasp. There was too much logic, too much purpose — it was almost too beautiful to have happened by accident.”

Entrepreneurship Is a High-Stakes Game and funding your Startup is at the Heart of it all …

So here is the supreme list of the “dirty dozen” of Startup Capital Raising Methods that you can employ right away…

Because still today, after thirty plus years as an Angel investor — I get asked to mentor entrepreneurs and when we meet, always the first question is “How do I find the money to start my business?”

And I always answer that there isn’t any magic to it, and contrary to popular myth, it is quite easy to do if your business has the simple quality of being fundable.

Of course the Entrepreneurs always like to fantasize that somebody is waiting in the wings to throw money at them, just because they have a new and exciting business idea, that in due time — will no doubt change the world as we know it.

Once that exchange is done — we can move on to Reality Check territory, where I have to explain that there are many more options available for funding a starting business, than they might find when looking for financing to buy a car, a home, or any other major consumer item.

So if you have the urge to be an entrepreneur, I encourage you to think seriously about each of these, before you zero in on one, two, or three, and then get totally discouraged if those few options, don’t work for you.

Of course, every alternative has advantages and disadvantages, so any given one may not be available or attractive to you.

For example, professional investors put great priority on your previous experience in building a business, and they expect to own a portion of the business equity and control for the funds they do provide. These are tough for a first-time entrepreneur.

Thus it is always a question of what you qualify for, and what you are willing to give up, to turn your dream idea into a viable business.

So here is my list of the 12 most common sources of funding today, in sequential form, with some rules of thumb to channel your focus…

Screen Shot 2017-11-19 at 4.35.09 AM

Topmost are the incredible DOTs that you can see up above that help involve and inform the fundraising of every intelligent Startup that seeks the help of the American Angels.

Naturally every funding decision is a complex tradeoff between near-term and longer-term costs and paybacks, as well as overall ownership and control. Yet with the many options available, there is no excuse for not living your dream, rather than dreaming about living. As a general rule, professional investors will expect that you have already put your own money in the Startup and that you already have commitments from friends & family, in order to show your credibility. If yourself, or your friends and family don’t believe in you, you shouldn’t expect others and especially professional outsiders to jump in. Your own pocketbook, and your F&F are the primary source of personal and non personal funds for very early-stage startups.

As you read this article, you shall see, that all of the other options besides the incredible DOTs of the AMERICAN ANGELS, require far more work and commitment on your part, in order to maintain and grow the Startup because there is no Alladin’s magic djinnie, Irish pot of gold at the end of the rainbow with a green gnome marking the spot, or some treasure money from a long lost Pirate relative that hid his Spanish golden doubloons in a deserted island of the Caribbean, but there are DOTs and I see them everywhere…

However here is the supreme list of the “dirty dozen” of Startup Capital Raising Methods that you can employ right away:

1) The incredible digital currency named DOT allows for an Internet Coin Offering (ICO) to raise abundant capital for your Startups. This method of the DOTs is the newest digital currency that helps us perform an ICO with a digital currency that is solid, and as a FinTech software token, is not subject to SEC approval, but rather is a simple SAAS service method of raising Capital for a Tech worthy StartUp. The American Angels specialize on education the World about this method of ICOs for all Tech & Science Startups, and this is the current iteration of this budding method of Fundraising.

We got our start in the Silicon Valley and in the Pacific Northwest, and You could attend a meeting of the American Angels in Seattle, in Bellevue, or in San Francisco, and Stanford University, in order to see if this system of ICO funding via the digital SAAS token currency DOTs, is for you, and for your Startup. Look for upcoming meetings at the American Angels Crowdfunding Meetup site here: http://www.MeetUp.com/AmericanAngels or http://www.MeetUp.com/AngelInvestors and RSVP to the next meetings to educate yourself fully.

2), 3), 4), Bootstrapping, by Self, Friends, & Family. The truth of the matter is that you can partly or even fully jumpstart your Startup with these Big Three, at the earliest stage. These are the TOP-3 methods of funding your Startup: 1) By Yourself bootstrapping it. 2) By your Friends pitching in. 3) By your Family giving you the capital you require. So these 1,2,3, are the top funding mechanism for Startups because these days the overall starting costs of a digital business, are at an all-time low, and over 90% percent of all startups are self funded, through bootstrapping for the first year of operations and sometimes all the way up to their 18 month energy limit. Of course for someone straight out of school, it may take a bit longer to save some money before you start your company, but what the hell are you going to do with the Financial Aid and your Student Work, if you cannot save some of it for your dreams?

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 3.55.22 AM

And this method truly helps your Startup dream come to the world and grow organically, in the protected garden of your self, friends & family’s patch. And there are many other massive advantages of bootstrapping, such as the fact that you don’t have to give up any equity or control to others.

Yet you still have to built an Executive team of co-founders, and share fairly equitably some of the Startup equity with them. But for all practical purposes the business is owned by the Founders alone, at this stage, and this gives you a certain kind of Freedom that is unprecedented, and a rather freeing experience, to do as you damn well please.

5) Small Business Grant: These are government funds allocated to support new technologies and important causes, such as education, medicine and social needs. A good place to start looking is Grants.gov, which is a searchable directory of more than 1,000 federal grant programs. The process is long, but it doesn’t cost you any equity.

6) Start an online crowdfunding campaign: This newest source of funding, where anyone can participate as the JOBS Act passed by Congress in 2011 and regulated by the SEC in 2015, is exemplified by the internet schemes that help you fund your project online and can be found in sites such as Go-Fund-Me, Indie-gogo, Kickstarter, etc. Here is where many internet savvy people make online pledges to your startup during a campaign, or to pre-buy the product for later delivery, or give donations, or qualify for a reward, or even for a partnership, or a job deal, or to participate in the gig economy and the sharing internet economy, etc.

Screen Shot 2017-12-31 at 7.38.52 PM

7) American Angel Investors from your local business community: Most metropolitan areas have groups of local high-net-worth individuals interested in supporting startups, and willing to syndicate amounts up to a million dollars for qualified startups. Use online platforms such as Gust to find them, and local networking to find ones that relate to your industry and passion. For example American Angels is everywhere, and can be accessed from here: http://www.meetup.com/AngelInvestors or here: http://www.AmericanAngels.net

8) Venture Capital Investors: These are professional investors, such as Kleiner Perkins, Sequoia, Draper, Accel Partners, Bain, Graystock, and many others who invest their general partners’ funds, that are derived from institutional Capital, in some qualified startups, usually Tech and Science, with a proven business model, great Executive team, and ready to pursue growth & scale. These VC investors typically look for big opportunities, needing a couple of million dollars or more, with a proven team of executives. Always must look for a personal and warm introduction, to make this work.

9) Join an incubator or an accelerator to help yourself find your way and the means to find your niche. These organizations, such as Y Combinator, and many others, are quite popular these days, and are often associated with major universities, community development organizations, or even large companies. Most provide free resources to startups, including office facilities and consulting, but many provide seed funding as well.

Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 1.43.33 PM

10) Negotiate an advance from a strategic partner or customer and thus find a major customer, or a complimentary business, who sees such value in your idea that they are willing to give you an advance on royalty payments to complete your development. Variations on this theme include early licensing or white-labeling agreements.

11) Trade equity or services for startup help, for your early stage needs. This is most often called bartering your skills or something you have for something you need. An example would be negotiating free office space by agreeing to support the computer systems for all the other office tenants. Another common example is exchanging equity for legal and accounting support.

12) Seek a bank loan or credit-card line of credit: In general, this won’t happen for a new startup, unless you have a good credit history or existing assets that you are willing to put at risk for collateral. In most of the United States, you may find that the Small Business Administration (SBA) can get you infusions of cash without normal backup requirements.

And there are of course millions of other ways that you can raise Capital for your Startup.

So now is the time to go out and find yours…

Please keep in mind that all of these methods are available to all of you, and you are only limited by your resourcefulness, by your imagination, and by your creativity, in finding and connecting the DOTs, and the Capital, you need, and then pursuing them to your benefit, to the benefit of the Startup that you are building, and to the utmost benefit of that dent we’ve trying to put on the Universe…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

The American is the Englishman left to himself…

Alex de Tocqueville said that “The American is the Englishman left to himself” and it seems to be just right as descriptive phrases go…

Edmund Burke, wrote the greatest British encomium to conservatism, when he was a Whig, titled “Reflections on the Revolution in France” which is a political pamphlet and published in November 1790. It was indeed one of the best-known intellectual attacks against the French Revolution, and Burke’s “Reflections on the Revolution in France” to this day is considered the defining tract of modern conservatism, as well as an important contribution to international theory. Above all else, it has been one of the defining efforts of Edmund Burke’s transformation of “traditionalism” into a self-conscious and fully conceived political philosophy of “Conservatism” that informs the ideological wars of today and shines the cathartic light of day upon the plantation politics of todays Democratic party in America and the New Labour party in the old Blighty.

is one amongst all of Edmund Burke’s books, speeches, and pamphlets, has not been easy to classify, because academics have had trouble identifying whether Burke, or his tract, can best be understood as a realist, or an idealist, a Rationalist or a Revolutionist, supporter and enthusiastic political philosopher. Yet, largely thanks to its thoroughness, superb rhetorical skill, and awesome literary power — Burke’s “Reflections on the Revolution in France” has become the most widely read of Burke’s writings and a classic text in political theory. Still today, in the twentieth century, it has greatly influenced the conservative and the classical liberal intellectuals, who recast Burke’s Whiggish arguments as a clear critique of all communist, revolutionary, leftist, socialist, and illiberal political statist programmes.

Now Daniel Hannan, who is a Tory, an ultra euro-sceptic conservative MEP, in fact has written a great encomium to Burke’s pean to Whiggery, that was last seen hiding inside Burke’s “Reflections on the Revolution in France” of 1790…

The title of this new conservative achievement is “How We Invented Freedom & Why It Matters” by Daniel Hannan, and it is a joy to read and think through…

Interspersed with the eloquence of Macaulay or Trevelyan – both of whom are liberally quoted here – Hannan sweeps us through English history to show the triumph of law-based liberty and “that total understanding which can only exist between people speaking the same tongue”.

And with incredible ingenuity, he finds the marks of this genius in almost everything the English have done.

Screen Shot 2017-12-27 at 10.45.57 AM

I say “the English” because Hannan has no race theory, pointing out, for example, how “English” oriental people can be in Hong Kong, Singapore or India – but he certainly believes in the Anglo-Saxon tradition. The Norman Conquest was, in his view, a “calamity” since it is because of Saxon Witans, Saxon law, and Kipling’s Saxon yeoman who “stands like an ox in his furrow” demanding fair dealing, that we are a free people today. He even complains that the Normans, being more snooty, let us keep plain Saxon words – cow, pig, lamb – for living animals, but imposed their own French-derived ones for the cooked version – beef, pork, mutton.

There are some Great Passages here as one shows how – despite having had what was called the Peasants’ Revolt – the English were never peasants at all since they had property rights. Another explains how our freedom to make our wills in favour of anyone we wish, upholds the rights of property by extending them beyond death, whereas on the Continent, the law makes you leave things equally to your children.

But though this book is ultra-patriotic, it is also global. “Let observation, with extensive view, survey mankind from China to Peru”, wrote Dr Johnson. That is what Hannan does, particularly from the latter vantage point. He is Anglo-Peruvian, brought up mainly in Peru, and this enables him to contrast a Spanish-based polity where no one believed in the rule of law, with our own dear habits. He says he loves Iberian culture but, the more he knows both, “the harder it is to sustain the idea that the English and the Spanish speaking worlds, are manifestations of a common Western civilisation”.

Screen Shot 2017-12-27 at 10.44.27 AM

Hannan’s obsession is not England, but the Anglosphere. Out of it all, came the Magna Carta, the Civil War, the Glorious Revolution, and then came along the non English bits – the American Revolution, for instance, and the Statute of Westminster, which relinquished British parliamentary control over Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Part of his theme is captured in the couplet from a play that convicts first performed in Sydney in 1796: “True patriots we, for be it understood, that we left our country, for our country’s good” Either that or was it in order to beat us at cricket?

Hannan shows the continuities and the links of AngloSaxon culture to great effect. I am ashamed to say that I had not known, before reading this book, that Abraham Lincoln’s most famous phrase was invented by John Wycliffe in 1384.

Wycliffe’s prologue to the earliest English translation of the Bible said that “This Bible is for the government of the people, for the people, and by the people.”

And some three centuries later, the 16th American President, Abraham Lincoln echoed that sentiment in his Gettysburg address rather deftly, so much so, that he now owns the phrase.

To his credit, he stole it beautifully and restored it to a far greater height of Political Reason than any of the previous users. The fact that our Democracy today still utilizes this wonderfully worded sentiment that was “smithed” over the passage of time and over many centuries of lugubrious existence is n an of itself a testament to the power of biblical rhetoric… in the power of the 1, 2, 3, ascending tri-colon of the Art of Oratory that the Great Emancipator was a sublime practitioner.

Screen Shot 2018-01-01 at 9.10.13 PM

Today, Hannan believes, that these awesome virtues of the Anglosphere, are more secure in governments like that of President Donald Trump in America, Tony Abbott in Australia, Stephen Harper in Canada, and John Key in New Zealand, than in today’s British government, struggling to leave the totalitarian European Union. Yet still being left behind the EURO curtain, even thought the BREXIT referendum was quite clear as to the intent of the British people. And even though the slow cooking method of Teresa May that betrays her personal fears of abandonment, and her efforts at appeasement of her “Herr Fuhrer” friends in Brussels and Berlin, have in many cases supplanted the will of the people — we are certain that their clarion call for Liberty will be resoundly heard across the whole of Europe and the World.

Still in Hannan’s mind, the love of liberty is above all else, more fully expressed and protected within the US Constitution, where it is enshrined far deeper, than in England’s own parliamentary sovereignty in its current, and debased form. Because in the United Kingdom of today, the government represents very few Free Englishmen, in its bondage under the EU overlords and their Nazi “Gauleiters” the likes of Mr Junckers and all the other Eurocrats. And until such time that the Conservatives stage their own Glorious Revolution, and oust Auntie Teresa, the wiccan ugly witch who conspires to deny their Freedoms — there is no end to the grave humiliations that she and her lot will put us all through…

Here is where Hannan quotes with approval Alex de Tocqueville when the latter stated that “The American is the Englishman left to himself” when he argues for a revised British Bill of Rights – sort of a 1689 constitutional bill, adjusted for today and with modern knobs onto it, in order to Americanize the English constitution, and thus, paradoxically, make it even more “English.”

It is all such a tremendous book, that I feel sad to say that I do not, strictly speaking, agree with its classification as history, since its account of ever-increasing freedom, for example, cannot properly be squared with the royal drive for control that lay behind the English Reformation. Indeed, as Hannan half acknowledges, the persecution of Catholics, was a constant theme of more than 300 years of our all too English history, going far beyond a reasonable suspicion of papal power in both length of time, intensity of Reforms, and in the ceaseless destruction of Monasteries and Catholic churches, proves beyond reasonable doubt that the the English people detest foreign control…

You see?

That’s how it’s done.

Drive the parish Papal Talibans out to sea… and reclaim your country.

The same will happen with the EU overlords.

They will be driven out to sea so that we can be left alone and Free to dispose of our own affairs.

Screen Shot 2018-01-01 at 6.40.38 PM

But I do not want to complain too much here, because as Hannan himself quotes Renan, “Getting its history wrong is part of being a nation.” And the admirable way Hannan gets our English history wrong, works to the good for all of us.

Even if it is not always true that we have upheld liberty and the law, it helps us to do better if we believe that this is our special role in the world. In all countries, at all times, there are a shocking number of people who want to diminish freedom, and at the very least we are not one of them.

At in the final analysis, the enemies of Liberty, at least within the Anglosphere — will certainly never succeed, without a fierce fight.

Screen Shot 2017-12-31 at 7.40.11 PM

And we also know how to win those fights were everything is at stake, as our grandfather Winston Churchill fought and proved.

And as the Liberty that is still ours, proves beyond reproach.

And as along the way we managed to secure the Freedom of many other nations and various Peoples too…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

“We should remember who we are”.

Indeed, we should.

And, I am happy to play along, even if it might involve a bit of false memory syndrome, because Daniel Hannan is surely right, when he says that certain trends in the world today, favour what he advocates as the elemental pursuit of Freedom and Liberty…

One interesting example is how the Republic of Ireland, which so long chose to define itself by how anti-British it was, is now a much more relaxed part of the Anglosphere.

Screen Shot 2018-01-01 at 9.49.03 PM

Another is that the prolonged agonies of the eurozone, after its apparently successful beginnings, are showing the world how painful and foolish it is to impose a new order upon disparate and vivid nations.

Instead, we few English, we happy few, by contrast, have become many, and spread Albion’s seed freely all over the place that we now have comer to call Anglosphere…

And we can surely even win the fights to come, if only, when Daniel Hannan blows “Reveille” we weren’t so sunk in swinish slumber, or drunken stupor, as we are now fond to be wallowing in the sea of Kool-Aid drinks the hypocritical leftist illiberals have gotten us accustomed to drown our liberty, along with out sadness & sorrows into … as a concentration camp diversion due to drinking way too much German plonk.

So go read Hannan’s book and give me your thoughts here:

Let’s get to work…

Cyberwar, cybersecurity, and cyber sabotage, are very much in our mind, and on our plate today, as North Korean ICBMs with nuclear heads target most of the major US cities according to intelligence. Of course we all know that the Korean missiles are the tip of the arrow of the Chinese Military, that provide plausible deniability to our adversary and commercial ally — People’s Republic of China.

And this is what I remembered when I thought back on Thomas Jefferson, who had been away as ambassador to France, for three years right after the American Revolution, and who when he came back home, asked: “What did I miss?”

In the New Year, we all have a “What it is that I missed moment” because stuff & shit, happens all the time, all around in the world, and we keep learning and thinking about that, and about what is right and what is wrong, and what has been left out of the Mass Media News stories, that we best get to know soonest.

Because we all know that it is our responsibility to be educated and it’s always up to us to keep abreast of the News and the Intelligence that needs to be read behind the News. And if you do that in earnest, you get ti know the stories because even though you might have missed important stories and events, that continued to develop as we were traveling around the World on a Lecture tour — things unfolded as I had predicted about the important events of this year, like the first cyberwar that our enemies brought against the United States and won since they caused all the guidance and navigation systems of our Naval Fleet and the Air Force and our Missile Command, to fail. They demonstrated that Victory quite well, when they caused our navy vessels to crash onto each other, and onto random commercial traffic, with tragic loss of life and other terrific consequences that placed our dominance on the High Seas in question and doubt.

So of course, we lost that cyberwar, quoting an anonymous US government official to whom I had spoken in the waning months of the past year 2017 that saw the exploits of the Chinese hackers into our satellite GPS systems being successful. Of course, in the months since the navy ships collisions, the scope of that cyberwar has become even more apparent, as has now all of the imagined scenarios we used to prepare. Our nightmares have turned out to be true, but also to be the tools that mislead us terribly and throw us off target.

Mainly because we thought that cyberwar, would involve hacking into our terrestrial systems, denial-of-service attacks, manipulating data, or perhaps taking down the power grid, telecommunications, water supply, nuclear plants, or banking systems, and we missed that it would be a war directly targeting the human guidance element that results from the GPS system that is rotating above the Earth’s atmosphere.

It was that GPS system that was hacked and purposefully failed us. And in turn this failure destroyed the trust of the navy navigators, the pilots of said ships, and our gunboats, same as our Air force pilots, and our missile guidance operators — onto the same system that is vital for anything that we need to do and that involves telemetry and telematics.

In this version of cyber warfare it is indeed, we, not only our machines, that were hacked, because on the US Navy we have several layers of observation and command for the vessels to follow a certain course, and they all failed massively as the various collisions proved. The machines were simply the vector by which it was done, but the human assets failed like a series of dominoes as well.

Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 4.06.14 PM

The satellite GPS algorithms were not modified by the Chinese and their North Korean brotherhood of malicious hackers, but the GPS satellites’ positioning ability was. And so was the trust that these satellites had earlier given to the navy navigators, and the captains, and pilots and now all their coordinates are suspect, and our faith on the system has been badly shaken. The Chinese hackers unleashed imaginary bots, that masqueraded as phantom shipping traffic, and at the same time masked the real vessels sailing and operating nearby, and thus caused our vessels to maneuver onto the oncoming traffic, and cause catastrophic mid-sea collisions.

Now, we could effectively compare the current state of algorithmic big data satellite hacking systems, the physical take over of satellite communication systems, by one of our enemies, and the requisite Artificial Intelligence required to accomplish this, with our wish for Technological Superiority, forgetting that sometimes we need less Tech, not more. As a matter of fact, we need less tech that goes badly awry, and we need more human intelligence to fall back on. We need now more paper maps and charts to compensate for the digital ones that get hacked and become the “Trojan horse” and the onboard enemy saboteur.

And in all of my North Korea Nuclear Threat talks, since the Naval “accidents” and the various Navy vessel Mid-sea “Collisions,” I’ve also used that image of our overt reliance on High-Tech that can be our downfall, since it perfectly sums up, and encapsulates the state of Cyberwar against our enemies, but also against those friends who are now trying to come to grips with the monsters that this cyberwar has unleashed, and they want more technology, instead of more disruptive technology and old fashioned Human Tech to rely upon.

This image also perfectly captures what we should be afraid of AI, not that it will get a mind of its own, but that it won’t and will continue its relentless pursuit of our ill-considered wishes, whose consequences we don’t understand.

And this, is what we must fear the most, because we must also consider the abuse of AI by those in military power, and in positions of authority, like the Admirals that have close contacts with the military industrial complex that always pushes for more fancy weapons systems that cannot operate on the disrupted battlefields of tomorrow that has suddenly arrived. This cyberwar pushed the food off of our plate, because too few people understand, let alone worry what foreign powers will do with the abundant AI that can hack into our satellite systems and our terrestrial radars, and guidance and navigational systems onboard our vessels and our flying assets, missiles, and airplanes, as well as rockets of all kinds…

And we also have to think about the fragility of the whole of our satellite fleet, and our other celestial assets, even more than what we worry about the naval fleet, or the missile, and gunboat fleet, that are guided by them.

At least after many decades of government’s complacency in Space, we finally have a SPACE COUNCIL that was inaugurated by President Trump, and that is the trenchant light that we need to shine on the Heavens Up Above too.

Now, I make the case that we don’t need to look to a far future of hacking enemy’s AI in order to see a runaway objective function with the unintended consequences of their algorithms.

Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 4.05.46 PM

That’s my call to all of you thinking, like me, about what we’ve learned in the past year, and what we must resolve to do going forward.

Most important is to give up on fatalism, and the idea that technology is going to make our our military and our world a safer place to be, and that the future we hand on to our children and grandchildren will be better than the one we were born into.

Let’s get busy making a better world, and a safer world by re-learnig the ancient skills of the Mariners that were able to navigate accurately by the stars and the landmarks using a magnetic compass and an astrolabe. Because if we cannot have these capacities now — we will eternally beholden to a technology that can be hacked at will by our enemies as they demonstrated and that will push our missiles and our airplanes and vessels astray and thus make our greatest military assets obsolete.

Yet, I am optimistic not because the road ahead is easy but because it is hard.

And this is my faith in humanity, and the American exceptional Spirit of Innovation and Enterprise coupled with that unique Spirit of Liberty.

And it is that we can rise up when the circumstances demand it, to meet the great challenges ahead of us.
Because it is a high moral imperative to do so. It is not a choice, not intelligence, nor creativity, that is our greatest asset — but this sense of a Christian Moral Imperative to safeguard and save Western Greco-Roman Christian Civilization.

Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 1.37.43 PM

Please keep that in mind because things will surely get much worse before they start turning around and begin to be getting better.

But we can choose Life, and Decency, and to Fight for our Democratic Republic, because this is the only way for us to lift each other up, to build a war machine that is not fully reliant on electronic tools that an EMP ICBM could render completely useless in a few seconds, and to create a resilient all inclusive economy where people’s well being and basic needs matter far more than luxuriant High-Tech toys that are easily broken.

Surely, we can dream big dreams and solve big problems, but we don’t need an electronic donkey substitute when we can have a platoon of real donkeys, mules, and horses, for far less money than the cost of a single Boston Dynamics built fake mule.

Capice?

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

So instead of using technology to replace people, and beings, we should use it to augment the living assets, so they can do things that were previously impossible.

After all the most important Capital in every war is always the Human Capital and the power of Intelligence to subvert, subterfuge, and sink, the enemy’s morale, their psychology, and their will to fight, along with all of their military plans – long before the war has even started.

And that is what Ulysses taught us from that long ago famous and utterly successful Trojan war of the cunning Man winning against the brutal strength of the barbarians…

After all, according to Homer, Ulysseus’ heroic trait is his cunning intellect, his intelligence, and his Stratagems that have elevated him high enough, to be considered as a “Peer of Zeus” in Counsel, in Strategy, and in Military Genius & Vision.

So now, we only have the use of our natural Human Intelligence in order to thwart our Enemy’s plans so we best get cracking.

And until such time that our Satellite technology gets “hardened” and improved to that stage where we can reliably outfox and outwit our opponents — we need to go low tech and disruptive tech to be able to stem the tides of Nuclear War and Total Catastrophe, and replace them with a conventional show of force in the Skies Up above…

A showstopper for our enemies is what we need to produce now urgently…

And that is what we are busy building as we speak.

Startup RM = Revenue Models for your Startup

Here are a dozen different Revenue Models for Startup Companies for the founders and the executive team to think through and establish for their own Start-Up.

Of course as with anything else, seasoned, serial, and first time entrepreneurs alike, need to take the time to decide which model is most suitable for their startup — not the one that makes the most money — and implement it.

And of course you ought to know that once a Startup company, settles on a revenue model, it can be rather hard to switch, pick another, or change course of revenue creation mid-stream.

As with every revenue model used by startups, highlighting the most effective revenue models, should help you pick the ONE that will boost your startup into the big leagues.

Now, regardless of what your product, service, or mobile app might be — it’s only useful if you can get it into the hands of your target customers in a reasonable exchange for folding money.

Because once you’ve got an MVP, an Alpha, Beta, or Gamma version of your software, or a finalized offering, there still remains the most important job of selling your “thingy” to the consumers, the aliens, or the “whomevers” you plan on selling to…

And this is not an easy job either, since there are countless factors that need to be taken into account when you set out to bring your service/product to the market, that need to be taken into account, like the industry you’re in, whether you’re selling a web-based product, SAAS, other software, or even physical hardware, and consumables — the channels that you will be using in order to attract your customers, and close the sale, are all commensurate to the method that you have selected in your business model for how to generate revenue for your budding enterprise…

And with the beginning of a New Year, we ought to double down on all of our Startup’s viability, because that is the best time to let go of the old things and try new ones, and that includes the Startups that we are so fond of. Think of the comparative advantage of working with a viable Startup vs working with one that hasn’t got a prayer to survive, or most importantly, one that hasn’t got a proper Revenue Model.

So that is why I’ve prepared this extensive guide that clearly outlines some of the most commonly and widely used startup business revenue models that our various early stage startups use to sell their offerings. This guide is written with a basic description of each one, along with the advantages and the curious disadvantages of each “R.M.” in order to help you pick the best Revenue Model for your company. Please keep in mind that there are foundational and fundamental differences, between the Business Model, the Revenue Model, and the Revenue Stream, for our various types of Startups.

Yet, before we delve into the different types of revenue models, we need to bone up on the fundamentals, so we shall spend a little time differentiating between the terms “business model,” “revenue model,” and “revenue stream,” as they are all used incorrectly and interchangeably as mixed up business management concepts. And that is mostly why the MBAs earn their keep by often being the only ones able to recognize the key differences in these management discussions. They simply speak the “lingo,” they know the “language,” and they’ve got the “Argot” down pat.

Now, basically the correct way to think about all of these business concepts, is that a revenue stream, is a company’s source of revenue. A company can have one or multiple revenue streams, depending on its market size, but at least it has to identify one or even few of them and employ them until it finds out which ones work, and stick with them. Contrast that with the revenue model, which is the strategy of managing a company’s revenue streams, and the resources required for each revenue stream to flow. Lastly, a business model is the infrastructure of the Startup company as comprised of all the working aspects of a company, including the aforementioned revenue model, and the revenue streams, and the description of how all of them fit and work together, in order to ensure the company’s growth, as well as it’s long-term survival, and viability.

So here bellow are the s types of revenue models in the startup community, with the most popular and effective revenue models, highlighted ahead of the other models since they are employed by the greatest number of Startups and Grown-up companies, big and small ones, unicorns, and uni-mice, too.

We start with the Ad-Based Revenue Model that entails creating and placing ads for a specific website, service, mobile-app, or other product & service, and then placing these ads, on strategic, high-traffic channels, banners, pop-ups, scrolls, and third party ads. If your company has a website or you have a web-based company, Google’s AdSense is one of the most common tools to get ads and create ad revenue from the get-go. Yet, for most startup websites, AdSense will earn about $5-10 dollars, per 1,000 page views. Here the basic advantages are in making money from the ads in one of the simplest and easiest ways to implement revenue models, which is why so many companies utilize web based ads, and specifically Google Ads, as a source of revenue. Of course, there are some clear disadvantages here too, because in order to generate sufficient revenue to sustain a Startup business, you will need to attract many millions of users. In addition, to having to climb that molehill, you ought to know that most people find these pop-up and many other kids of targeted ads, super annoying, which can lead to low clickthrough rates, and therefore, lower revenue, since it defeats the first rule…

Second, we will talk about the Affiliate Revenue Model, which is another popular web-based revenue model, that works by promoting links to relevant products and collecting commission on the sales of those products, and can even work in conjunction with the above mentioned ad based revenue model, or separately. The obvious advantage is also the most obvious benefit of employing an affiliate revenue model in that it generally makes far more money than a simple ad-based revenue model. But the disadvantage is that if you use an affiliate revenue model for your startup, remember that the amount of money you make is limited to the size of your industry, the types of products you sell, and your audience.

Third is the transactional Revenue Model that is employed by countless start-up companies, both tech and otherwise, that strive to rely on the transactional revenue model, for good reason, since this method is one of the most direct ways of generating revenue, as it entails a company providing a service or product and customers paying them for it straight up. The advantage is hat consumers are more attracted to this experience because of its simplicity and the wider set of options, and because it mimics the bazaar mentality that has been a staple of the man experience for Thousands of years, whereas the main disadvantage is the directness of the transactional revenue model, and the fact that far more companies employ this method themselves, which means far more competition and price deterioration, and therefore, less money to be made by anyone and everyone who uses this RM – revenue model.

Then is the subscription revenue model which entails offering your customers a product or service that customers can pay for over a longer period of time, usually month to month, or even year to year. And the obvious advantage is that if your company is far enough along in its development curve, this model can generate recurring revenue, and can even benefit from customers who are simply too lazy to cancel their subscription to your company, which is the dirty little secret of a subscription-based model. There are clear disadvantages, because this model depends very much on having a overly large consumer base — so it’s critical to maintain a higher subscribe rate than an unsubscribe rate, and to keep stoking it upwards.

Next up is the Web Sales Revenue Model, which is an offshoot of the classic transactional revenue model, in which a customer pays directly for a product or service, except that the new customers must first come to your company via a web search, or an outbound SEO or other type of marketing, and then you need to conduct all the transactions solely over the internet. The advantages of Web sales are mainly, in that it works with a wide variety of offerings, including software, hardware, and even subscription services, whereas the disadvantages are that relationship sales are incompatible with the web sales model, so if your company is related to others, such as in consulting, or selling big ticket items (high-value items such as houses, appliances, and cars), you should consider employing a model that’s more suited to your offering.

We also have Direct Sales Revenue Model, where there are two main types of direct sales, the inside sales, in which someone calls in to place an order or sales agents calling prospects, and the outside sales, which is a face to face sales transaction. Advantages of Direct sales models is that they work great with relationship sales cycles, enterprise sales cycles, or complex sales cycles that entail multiple buyers and influencers. The disadvantages, are that the direct sales model often requires hiring a sales team of some sort, which means that it isn’t optimal for small ticket price items. If your offering is priced below the $1,000-$2,000 range, you’ll have trouble building a scalable company.

Channel Sales (or Indirect Sales) Revenue Model, is the model where the channel sales model consists of agents or resellers selling your product for you and either you or the reseller delivering the product. The affiliate revenue model is a good companion model to this one, especially if your offering is a virtual product. Advantages: The channel sales model is ideal for companies who have a product that’s an incremental sale for their channel and can produce incremental profit. Disadvantages: Don’t employ this model if your product requires you to evangelize your marketplace, or if your product competes with that of your partners, as they will push their products first and foremost, and not yours.

Retail Sales Revenue Model: Retail sales entails setting up a traditional department store or retail store in which you offer physical goods to your customers. Keep in mind that the retail sales model will require shelf space (that you’ll have to pay for) at existing stores, and is best suited for products that require logistics to reach your customers. Advantages: Retail sales is a great way to offer deals and complimentary products to an existing customer base to help boost brand awareness. Disadvantages: The retail sales route is not ideal for early stage companies, or companies that offer digital products like software or apps.

Product is Free, But Services Aren’t Free, Revenue Model: This model is unique compared to others, in that you have to give your product away for free, yet require customers to pay for installation, customization, training or other additional services. Advantages: This model is great for building trust with your customer base and boosting brand awareness, as any company that offers anything for free will generate considerable buzz. Disadvantages: Remember, employing this model means that you are basically running a services business with the product as a marketing cost. Also, a model like this isn’t always the best for scaling your company in the long term, so keep your eye on additional revenue models to utilize later on.

Freemium Revenue Model: The freemium model is one in which a company’s basic services are free, yet users must pay for additional premium features, extensions, functions, etc. One of the biggest companies to use this model is Linkedin, the most popular business/social media platform. Advantages: Similar to the previous model, the freemium model offers something free to users, which is a great way to give them a taste of your product or service while simultaneously enticing them to pay for something later on. Disadvantages: This model requires a considerable investment of time and money to reach out to your audience, and even more effort to convert free users into paying customers.

Product or service is free, yet we get the revenue from FB ads, and that is why this is also known as the “Facebook Model.” This one is the most common Revenue Model, currently used by Internet startups around the globe the interface with Facebook Apps. With this model, your service is free, while the revenue comes from click-through advertising, making it excellent for customers, and truth be told, a little less excellent for fresh startup companies that are on a tight budget.

Lastly the “Product is free, but you pay for support services” revenue model, means that if you opt for this revenue model, your product will be given away free of charge, but the users will be paying for installation, customization, training or other additional services. This is a good model for getting your foot in the door, but be aware that this is basically a services business with the product as a marketing cost.

And that completes the “Dirty Dozen” of Revenue Models for your Startup and for your Future Life.

And by taking all this into account, we must also remember that the various ways that a startup company can sell their products or services is directly affected by how the market you choose to ply your trade in, affects the way in which you actually bring your product to the marketplace and how you are being rewarded for your efforts, or not…

As for finding out if you have chosen the right Revenue Model of not, follow your nose for success.

Once you find a Revenue Model that works — stick with it.

Stick with it, because it’s rather hard to argue with success.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Choosing the right revenue model for your business is not an easy thing to do, especially with so many people confusing it with the marketing model. Although the two are indeed closely related, make sure you know how to differentiate between these two concepts. A good marketing plan is crucial if you want to get visible, but revenue model takes care of your money in the long run.

A key challenge for every entrepreneur seeking funding is to convince potential investors that the marketing model will substantiate your positive revenue model, customers will buy the offering, and you have a viable business model.

Once you choose the right revenue model – then your investors will be happy to fund you bec cause they can smell SUCCESS.

And by the way, “Sex” still sells…
