Great Compression Anonymous 03/04/2017 (Sat) 18:41:38 Id: db8811 [Preview] No. 33845 [Reply]
Explain the great compression to me. What is the cause of income inequality shrinking in America from the 50s until the 1970s, and then it ballooned under Regans deregulation? Why don't we talk about the policies that worked during that Era today? This chart is the smoking gun that ought to blow Wall Street deregulation pundits out of the water.

It's a bold topic OP, I am tempted to namedrop zerohedge since of course, all forums have different ideas about economics.

I would say that a lot of it is fluff and economist-chatter, when Jews control capital. And if they want to fund this war or that they do so. "If my sons did not want war there would be none." Mother Rothschild.

I would also think that at some point around 1947 when they had the post war victory, the transistor, and gold fixed at 35 dollars per ounce, they could do whatever the fuck they wanted.

De Toqueville said Americans are enamored with "equality", and perhaps at our pinnacle, we tried to how that, i.e. the perfection moment of the 1950s, wages and unions, vehicles, all at their best. We waned an equal republic sot of thing,

**Of course if you went to Korean War, you got the short straw. That's the unfair part of the 1950s. The Sparta type of footsoldier, he got chewed up in Korea and Vietnam. It's not selling in the modern age like it does in Sparta.

So if we could

1: neuter Jews economically,
2: invent some new alien-tech level like transistor, and
3: have free market metals and commodities prices, and also
4: end the drug war, and
5: Kick out all the immungratefuls and gangs.

Then we could have the 1950s again, and we would have a pretty equal society. So in that light, I also described what fucked us up between 1970 and oh whenever we do this.

It's very convenient that you ignore the purchase of the District Capitol in 1911, the reenslavement of the people in 1913, and the debasement of lawful currency in 1933. The kikes must be wholly exterminated before we can even imagine good times again.

>purchase of the District Capitol in 1911,

Will research a bit more before reply, but thanks for the good comments.

>the reenslavement of the people in 1913, and
>the debasement of lawful currency in 1933.

Very nice, good points. OP was more asking about from great depression after but you are totally right.

>The kikes must be wholly exterminated before we can even imagine good times again.

No I said fiscally neutered meaning illegal for Jews to have anything to do with banking, money or currency or trade exchange, mercantilism of any kind. I m not a mass murderer if someone is willing to repent and do right. But yes it was they who did the things you mentioned of course, 1913 done by Jews, DC takeover and civil war done by Jews. General Grant knew, and would have expelled them all from the US but Abe was lenient with them, look how they and the Jesuit repayed him. Murder.

May I also ad the 1933 gold confiscation is not the same as the gold price fix. Only one could be done post war after the bomb is dropped and the Axis put down. So one represents the greed of the Jew but one represents the true goal of the Jew which is to own gold only so as to rule global credit utterly.

Their "source" decided to get even with Jews when he got fired. Turns out, Trump was right about reversals. But ask yourself, did he get paid by Jews, to lie? Obviously his anger went in a very heavy, specific direction. Also hated white people, so why is he all up in Jewmedia?? Was there unity at one time between these mediashits and tombtoppler whitehater sourcedude?

^^^ This is the sidebar shitarticle they have. It slings hate and disinfo onto Sovereign Americans and also LaVoy. I would say our work is having an effect on these fuckers, they are so scared, it's awesome to see them act out so obviously in the media protocol rags.

Only God himself could expose them and make them fall so hard. I advise everyone to make a list of brands or advertisers in these shitrags you loathe, and never buy one product ever again from said brands. Then write a letter to that media craporation, telling them what brand you so notified. Crush their moneyflows into the dust, and these vampires will continue to shrivel in the light.

By the way, I am well versed on sovereign court tactics. War is a battlefield and requires all fieldcraft, and also, to not be drawn into the battlefield 99% of the time, is key to winning over a lifetime. Do not go to court, do not fuck with cops, let the system fall on its own. As to are Americans sovereign, yes of course. In Chisolm v. Georgia 1793. Also it is only Jews and the UK Bar based ADL that writes such great polemics against such a obvious god given state, as sovereignty.

As Jay said (and this was prior to the unconstitutional and unwanted and unneeded Jewish and Vatican con trolled "Supreme Court" of 1805):
"[...] No such ideas obtain here;
at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people, and
they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but
they are sovereigns without subjects (unless the African slaves among us may be so called), and
have none to govern
but
themselves;
the citizens of America are equal

But you see true ghey activity is to be a Muslim and hate women as they do. Also the Jew has his stoning bullshit, so they both go in the same bag. Jesus being a non fag, stopped them from killing a girl hooker, and for that people loved him, because when you treat girls well, you are golden. But again, Muslims, being utterly fags, can never understand Jesus and that's why they act out. The world will not miss their sorry religion, nor will it miss mecca.

>Trump was referring to the Fox thng he had seen last night, you dumbfucks.

Yes, I don't doubt that Trump was referring to an Israeli Zionist neo-con propaganda segment on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox News:

>Others speculated that Mr. Trump might have been influenced by a Fox News interview of Ami Horowitz, a filmmaker who asserts that migrants in Sweden have been associated with a crime wave, by the correspondent Tucker Carlson. “They often times try to cover up some of these crimes,” Mr. Horowitz said, arguing that those who try to tell the truth about the situation are shouted down as racists and xenophobes.

>(Mr. Carlson interjected, “The masochism of the West knows no bounds at all.”)

>Mr. Horowitz said, “Sweden had its first terrorist Islamic attack not that long ago, so they’re now getting a taste of what we’ve been seeing across Europe already.”

>It was not clear what he was referring to. In 2010, a suicide bomber struck central Stockholm, injuring two people. The bomber, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, 28, was an Iraqi-born Swede who had developed an affinity for Al Qaeda. But that attack occurred long before the current wave of migrants fleeing war and deprivation.

ANd if I may comment further, having watched entirely his speech to Congress, I must say he is a powerful and fine speaker, and the teleprompter is a powerful tool, and he uses it well. However, in terms of police having more backup, what they need, is to have less duties. Less duties means they need to be doing less code enforcement and more flatfooting to find the true evil that is at this time, being ignored.

As a Captain in the USMC I commanded sometimes over a hundred Marines. They will follow orders from a little Sicilian likea me. However they are merciless verbally with you, if you fuck up, and especially if you get any of them killed. You see, a good cadre values itself, each member cherishes the life of his brothers. The way to make this work in real life and have it not be just words, is, to ask only a few basic things from the men, under your command.

When for example, Forrest Gump in that movie, shows up into Vietnam, his commander tells him the basics, keep your feet in good condition. Keep your weapon operation and ready at all times. In having less to think about, your footsoldier is able to be a better man, a better father, and TIME is what all men run out of, time and the childhood of their children. So you have to give them less to do, not more to do. You cannot load them up with powerful Cicero type words and then ask them to go do it, with double the workload. You have to know the backs of the men whom you ask to do this thing for you.

Your cadre is therefore improved by having more time to work together in solutions, mapping, planning, fieldcraft, because you didn't ask them to do a bunch of pushups and so forth, unnecessary things, just to impress your superiors or those who wrote your ticket. Soldiers can tell when you see them as brass polish.

Therefore, for this administration to lean into merging cops and military, and toward more laws and codes, "ala muerte" as one might say, more death, means less freedom for Americans. I would ask instead, that they show respect for common folk of both lands, and total decriminalization of drugs. yes, I advocate complete decriminalization combined with funding of some of these military billions, into hospitals to help people get off the drugs and to help families rebuild and heal. Said hospitals would be military necessity under the admission that the drug war was a failure and has caused a true national emergency requiring all drug agencies and policing to be stopped immediately.

Admittedly I have never been and never will b President, so please forgive this crude comment and it's location in time and space. I wish no disrespect, and my Original Post perhaps was in a moment of anger. That is not ho I normally am, I am normally very calm. Thanks to cannabis.

I applaud his idea to track immigrant violence, because these mooks have no honor like hmm, well, historically violent immigrants like me and my family. I am being funny here, can you see the humor? Truth is, my family is populated with military men. Many mafia fathers were Generals, and how does a son compete in peacetime with the relic of his father, a war hero? Thankfully my own father was just a humble man, known to be good. But not all immigrants are good, nor are they all children, as he was.

I am in the mood to continue my musings for one more post.

This is about the portion of the speech where we saw a young lady, a student at a college, who only survived due to her father working tirelessly and making and or finding, a rare drug. Then also, is there the capitalist martin shrekchi or whatever his name is, who says he can charge thousands of dollars for his company's drug, over there. See? Two different types of man entirely.

Funny story tho, is that, when fighting in Vietnam (a War I was thankfully too old for) in the rubber tree plantations of Michelin and other French corporations we mistakenly decided to prop up by fighting in Vietnam, I saw good soldiers, courts martial-ed and jailed at home in the US, for firing at the VC, who were in the rubber trees. Although the VC were in the trees, and firing down, those men could not fire back due to accountants, lawyers, judges, etc. Moreover they were imprisoned rather than having their command chain admit that it was dong wrong putting them there when they couldn't fight correctly.

In the story above, which is true, --and you can ask any Veteran of Vietnam that it is true, one asks; "How much does it cost his country, when you take a father from his family, due to corporate stupidity such as that?" And t is corporate power that causes the drug war. Yes corporations in the form of banks but actually the corporate form is most effective for fraud, that's what "limited liability" means you see.

Ending the drug war means, to break gangs apart. To create a superior gang that frees everyone. What this would look like, is, regular citizen-families get to interview an ex con and get paid to monitor him, and cops/citizens will publicly punish or execute him if he doesn't comply to live as a "normie" and be crime free. Yes, there will be prisoners we need to closely surveil and perhaps yes even maybe only release them into limited custody. I am saying, gulags and prison industry has to end, and it has to end now not sooner or later.

Returning power to Americans and yes indeed, all families who do right, is my primary tactical objective. Some day the prisons will open anyway, and you had better begin figuring out how to normalize your nation now. Men like me have a lot to offer in that we can see the truth. And the truth is this: it is hard to make drug, or to make drug, go away, depending on the drug.

And also that, some members of society, are far more vulnerable in times of breakdown, than others, and, in the name of the vulnerable, we should immediately begin making a better way forward. A "new system" so to speak. Where a man has the time to sit in his garden under his fig tree, or whatever tree he wish. Now I must go tend my soil as it is almost spring and I will be planting tomatoes soon. Happy March to all of you.

I'm an old man now. I got my pension at age 60 like any other Marine. Retired Marines live on not much but the new kids do okay. Still, you do not do what I did for money, it's more about using that meager money to potentially have to buy somethings for your widow when you'd heroically died in combat, as every Marine wishes. Nice to know your lady home has a bit of dough to live on. I would pay them more in money but far more in terms of post death car of families, and of course, medical performance.

Medicine is complex, yes, but aging is something all humans do, so we should have better common ground. Sorry for the long winded answer, here are links where you can find out about my rank if I were in the force today at my retirement rank. Also some facts on how much vets get to retire on. Answer is, not much.

Actually when I say not much money, that's not entirely true. For example this quote from the website I listed shows the math:

>Example: An E-8 transfers
>to Fleet Reserve on July 31, 2000 with
>22 years, 8 months service.
>The July 1, 2000 Active duty rate
>for an E-8 over 22 years is $3,161.10.
>2.5% x 22.67 years = 56.68%
>56.68% x $3,161.10 = $1,791.71

Now, this is not just any man living on that much money, --and, if it is a lot or not is subjective/relative. That is, until all base costs begin rising.

But this retired man, is not like other men, because an old marine still has a damn good rifleman rating, even if his hand trembles he knows he can use a tripod and rest it on that. Nothing will stop him if he needs to defend America.

Donald Trump's 'Shadow President' in Silicon Valley
h ttps://w ww.politico.com/story/2017/02/donald-trumps-shadow-president-in-silicon-valley-235372

Billionaire iconoclast (((Peter Thiel's))) fingerprints are all over the administration.

By Eliana Johnson | 02/26/17 07:06 AM EST

In early December, the name of a candidate to be the science adviser to the president began percolating in Trump Tower: David Gelernter, the reclusive Yale University computer scientist known for his dripping disdain for the liberal intellectual elite and for surviving an attack by the Unabomber.

Gelernter had no connection to Trump or his top political aides. And he would be an unconventional choice for the post: The 61-year-old professor is neither a physicist nor biologist, as is typical for the post, but a pioneering technologist credited with predicting the rise of the Internet.

But Gelernter has long been friendly with Peter Thiel. He regularly attends an annual conference of iconoclastic thinkers that the Silicon Valley billionaire hosts on the French Riviera. So it was on Thiel’s recommendation that Gelernter sat down at Trump Tower with the president-elect, his chief strategist Steve Bannon, and Thiel himself four days before the inauguration. The meeting followed a prior discussion between Gelernter and senior transition officials.

Gelernter’s potential elevation is just one small sign of Thiel’s growing stature in Trump world. He was a near-constant presence throughout the transition: Working with a staff of four to six aides from an office in Trump Tower, Thiel dispatched associates from his investment firms to help staff agencies across the government.
