The Fake News Scam:

"....In attempting to understand where this trend is headed, it might be helpful for those opposed to the liberal media to begin with the following assumptions:

    It doesn’t matter if the story is false

    It doesn’t matter if the conservative media is able to expose the falsification

    It doesn’t matter if liberals learn of the exposés

At present, the US may well be in a state of the greatest political polarization in its history. This has been created by both the liberal and conservative media.....":      The Trump Monster

The Paul Krugman[Nobel Prize economist] Scam:

"The biggest threat to America (and the rest of the world) is the coming implosion of the Krugman Con . This “con” gets its name from the Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist who (like most of the economics profession) has spent decades advocating the continuous growth of government spending, taxation, borrowing and money-printing at a pace that is faster than economic growth.

The policies—camouflaged in terms like “fiscal stimulus,” “multiplier effect” and “Phillips curve”—are worse than a Ponzi scheme. They are a Ponzi scheme any grade 10 student can understand...."

The U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights Scam:

"..A great many people – especially conservatives – reverence the Constitution, consider that it has been abused and that if only the doctrines expressed within were revived and respected, all would be well with America again.

The Oklahoma City Bombing Scam:

If you have any interest/curiosity at all in the whole 1995 OKC bombing affair, you owe it to yourself to watch this video , [and part 2 as well], all the way through.

It appears that finally there is some real , genuine light being shone on the event, via a former CIA black ops specialist, Cody Snodgres. Snodgres was offered the $ million job of bombing the OKC [Federal] Murrah building but turned it down because he suspected that, as a long time operator who was "winding down" career wise, he would be a patsy to then be "neutralized" after completing the job.

Snodgres exposes the main reasons for the bombing :

(1) to destroy massive amounts of incriminating Gulf war records that revealed massive government crimes, and..
(2) to destroy recently moved Clinton records deemed dangerous to the Clintons].

He also gets into the whole CIA/ Clinton/Arkansas drug running scheme, as well as Waco [pt. 2 of interview]

Fucking mind-blowing even for a die hard ultra cynic such as myself.

[p.s. Whether or not the viewer judges Snodgres' claims to be genuine or not is, as always, an individual affair. For myself, after reviewing several hours of this mans interviews, he appears to be totally legitimate, given his current mindset and beliefs, post "coming out" ]:

The Donald Trump Scam:

"One of the most surprising (and disappointing) effects of the Trump presidency has been the shift of certain “independent” and ” alternative” media outlets from truth seekers to establishment supporters.

We have seen several once great outlets become part of the divide and conquer put forth by the powers-that-wish-they-were. It’s been one year of the Trump administration and I think it’s quite clear that any perceived benefits are vastly outweighed by the negative actions of the administration. Some indy and alt outlets saw that Trump was a deceiver from the get go, but others somehow fell prey to the deception......":

The Electric Car Scam:

"..From an editorial in Automotive News:

“…EVs are being propped up by subsidies; without the subsidies, there would be very few EVs at all. They cost too much, rendering them uneconomical. They take comparatively forever to recharge, which makes them inconvenient. Hence, most people – most people- are not interested in them – especially without generous taxpayer-financed assistance.....In other words, continue to throw good money after bad – because hey, we’ve already wasted “x” amount of money. Therefore, waste more. The Defense Department works on exactly this reasoning...."

The FDA/ AMA/Big Pharma Scam:

"....But just as regulators are about to slam homeopathy out of existence at least by creating negative public opinion if not by onerous regulations,………. science got in the way.

A researcher at the University of Florence, Italy, reports on studies unequivocally show that some metal-based diluted homeopathic remedies evoke a biological response.

“These studies show that, contrary to previous beliefs, when homeopathic medicines containing metal nanoparticles are progressively diluted and succussed (shaken), highly diluted solutions contains an unexpected amount of the original substance.............”

Homeopathy Is About To Be Regulated Out Of Existence, But Science Just Got In The Way

The Investment/Economic Predictions Scam:

"The discovery of an algorithm that would consistently generate outsized returns would be the holy grail of investing. The individual who came up with such an algorithm and published the methodology in a peer-reviewed journal would be a serious candidate for the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. To date, no one has done so.

This is not surprising. As my colleague Larry Swedroe noted, the market is "forward looking" and incorporates all publicly available information into current prices. The issue is not (as many investors believe) whether news is good or bad. It's whether the news is "better or worse than already expected."

No algorithm can accurately predict surprising news. By definition, a "surprise" is both random and unpredictable...."

"Notwithstanding this compelling logic, investors are often seduced by the "algorithm scam." A broker, advisor or hedge fund operator claims to have a "black box" that will predict future prices. Sometimes the people making these claims have superb credentials, which make their pitch more appealing.........."

"....This type of fraud is particularly insidious because it's difficult to verify. If you ask the creator of an algorithm to tell you how it works, he or she will often claim it's "proprietary" and instead will show you back-tested data supporting its efficacy. The problem with back-tested data is that it produces hypothetical results by showing how investments would have performed if the strategy at issue were implemented. It's easy to misrepresent back-tested data...."

The Communism /Socialism/Fascism/ Collectivism Scam:

"Collectivism, in fact, can be stated in no other way than as partisan dogma in which the commitment to a definite ideal and the condemnation of all others are equally necessary. ............. For that reason all collectivist doctrines are harbingers of irreconcilable hatred and war to the death."

Horror of horrors, polls and studies indicate that many millennials are embracing Marxism: they want somebody to fund their “needs”! Where did they learn this nonsense?

It must be those left-wing, snowflake sanctuary, social justice warrior haven, gender-bending colleges and their washed up Marxist professors.

This is America, where everyone stands on their own two feet. That’s not how they were reared!

Except it is how they were reared. Good parents know their kids pay more attention to what they do than what they say. America has been slouching towards collectivism for decades. This bipartisan trend has been differentiated only by the hypocrisies the red and blue teams peddle. Regardless of what’s said, this country does statist collectivism. That anyone should express surprise or dismay that the young embrace collectivism betrays self-serving delusion that only fuels their cynicism.

Believe it or not, a fair number of millennials are reasonably well-informed. They just don’t get their information from their parents’ and grandparents’ favorite hypocrisy peddlers. The median age of Americans watching CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News is over 60, with Fox the most geriatric at 68...."

The War On Terror Scam:

"According to the U.S. Department of State, Iran foments terrorism: “Designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1984, Iran continued its terrorist-related activity in 2016…”

The Department of State does its best to create an imaginary, unreal, nonexistent, mythical image of Iran as terror haven. This is false.

If this were true, State could list the terror incidents on American soil that Iran sponsored. They do not, because they cannot. If there were such a list showing the guilt of Iran in causing terrorist acts in America, the U.S. would long ago have declared war on Iran......":

The F.D.A. /D.E.A. /A.M.A. / Big Pharma Scam:

"Over the last 11 months, pharmaceutical companies have spent a stunning $3.2 billion on TV ads for drugs.

That much money buys you influence. It buys you control.

If a major network suddenly decided to set its hounds loose and investigate the overall devastating effects of medical drugs on the public, there would be hell to pay at the network. Drug companies wouldn’t stand for it....."

The F.B.I. Scam:

"'Politifact delivered a “pants on fire” slam to Fox News on Friday because one of its commentators asserted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “has become America's secret police.” The FBI has legions of new champions nowadays among liberals and Democrats who hope that its probes will end Donald Trump’s presidency. This is a stunning reversal that may have J. Edgar Hoover spinning in his grave.

In order to boost the credibility of the FBI’s investigations of the Trump team, much of the media is whitewashing the bureau’s entire history. But the FBI has been out of control almost since its birth.........."

The Federal Reserve/Inflation Scam:

"....In the 100-plus years since the creation of the Federal Reserve, the Fed has steadily inflated the US dollar.

He’s right—it has."

"..First, there is the GOP tax bill. We are still uncertain as to the details. So are members of Congress, who are waiting for lobbyists to work them out.

But the broad brushstrokes are so obvious, they must be visible from outer space: It is a scam.

Its real effect will be to enable the transfer of trillions of dollars more from the productive economy to the zombies, cronies, and Deep State insiders… leaving slower real economic growth and leaving most people poorer....":

"...internet regulation like net neutrality is just another form of central planning which requires a centralized rule-making body which must functions without  the essential first-hand experience and knowledge of real-world market actors.

"....one of the manufacturers of a fentanyl drug was exposed for lobbying against marijuana, while simultaneously bribing doctors to push their dangerous opioids. Now, after the federal government granted Insys permission to make a synthetic version of cannabis, they are claiming that it’s safer and more medically valuable than actual weed. Seriously.

The DEA recently announced through the federal register that the synthetic THC made by Insys, sold under the brand name Syndros, will be listed as a schedule II drug, meaning it can now be prescribed by doctors. In the meantime, actual THC—containing the exact same properties, but able to be grown in your backyard—remains on the same scheduling list as heroin, noting that it has “no currently accepted medical use” and “a high potential for abuse.”....."

The Government Welfare Scam:

"Fighting poverty is a favorite pastime of government because politicians get to portray themselves as champions of the poor. However, the unfortunate few tend to be far fewer in number when aid is extended privately instead of through tax funded programs.

Government Bureaucracies Benefit from Welfare Programs

Coercion is used to acquire the revenue (taxes) to finance welfare programs. As evidenced by the commission it retains prior to redistributing this wealth, government bureaucracies are one of the beneficiaries of these programs, and thus highly incentivized to claim a perpetual need for the programs. .............."

The National Defense Scam:

".....The Military-Industrial Complex has loomed over America ever since President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of its growing influence during his prescient farewell address on Jan. 17, 1961. The Vietnam War followed shortly thereafter, and its bloody consequences cemented the image of the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) as a faceless cadre of profit-seeking warmongers who’ve wrested control of the foreign policy. That was certainly borne out by the war’s utter senselessness … and by tales of profiteering by well-connected contractors like Brown & Root.

Over five decades, four major wars and a dozen-odd interventions later, we often talk about the Military-Industrial Complex as if we’re referring to a nefarious, flag-draped Death Star floating just beyond the reach of helpless Americans who’d generally prefer that war was not, as the great Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler aptly put it, little more than a money-making “racket.”

The feeling of powerlessness that the MIC engenders in “average Americans” makes a lot of sense if you just follow the money coming out of Capitol Hill. The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) tabulated all “defense-related spending” for both 2017 and 2018, and it hit nearly $1.1 trillion for each of the two years. The “defense-related” part is important because the annual National Defense Authorization Act, a.k.a. the defense budget, doesn’t fully account for all the various forms of national security spending that gets peppered around a half-dozen agencies.
