Propaganda Report with Perez & Binkley

scaramucci_romney_spacey_bush_twitter_328.jpegIn Davos, Anthony Scaramucci Translates Trump Message to Global Elite
Financier-turned-Trump adviser seeks to soothe nerves about the president-elect at the World Economic Forum; ‘one of the last great hopes for globalism’

“This is my 10th year here, but my first year here with a food taster,” Mr. Scaramucci quipped at the beginning of a conference session Tuesday afternoon nominally on the “Outlook for the United States” but really about President-elect Trump—and a little bit about Anthony Scaramucci….

Mr. Scaramucci depicted the system of global trade, whose apostles and architects compose the core of the Davos audience, as in need of repair. President-elect Trump “could be one of the last great hopes for globalism,” he said….

“If you guys get a little bit upset about the tweeting or some of the things that he’s saying, I want to put your mind at ease,” he said. “Directionally, this is a super-compassionate…

401ks, Baby Boomers & “Privatizing” Social Security

Propaganda Report with Perez & Binkley

mousetrap-dumb-money-imageThis is a follow-on to my recent post on Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s handler-apparent.

The Champions of the 401(k) Lament the Revolution They Started
The dominant vehicle for retirement savings has fallen short of its early backers’ rosy expectations; longer life spans, high fees and stock-market declines

Ms. Ghilarducci wants to ditch the 401(k) altogether. She and Blackstone Group President Tony James are recommending a mandated, government-run savings system that would be administered by the Social Security Administration and managed by investment professionals. While both are Democrats, they believe their solution has bipartisan appeal.

“There are a lot of governors and mayors who are Republicans, and the first wave of the crisis will affect states and cities,” Ms. Ghilarducci says.

She says she has already reached out to President-elect Donald Trump’s advisers to float the plan.

You might think that as a libertarian, I would be for anything with the word…

Going Galt / Pulling a Ron Paul (new glossary entry)

Going Galt
Expression for undergoing a voluntary financial strike or decrease in income. An individual might choose to do this in order to protest the amount of money going to the government, or to protest what they feel are unfair taxes (if they earn less, they will be taxed less, therefore hurting the government). The term is taken from a character in Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged”; the main character John Galt leads a movement where the wealthiest individuals leave their jobs for low-paying jobs in order to protest the socialist economy.

Pulling a Ron Paul
As a take-off on the concept of Going Galt, I’ve coined Pulling a Ron Paul whereby an individual can break-through the economic glass ceiling, accumulate a little capital or simply forego it, and head to Washington to fight the system full time on its own terms.

Cognitive Dissonance (new glossary entry)

In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time; performs an action that is contradictory to their beliefs, ideas, or values; or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas or values.[1][2]

Leon Festinger‘s theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. An individual who experiences inconsistency tends to become psychologically uncomfortable, and is motivated to try to reduce this dissonance, as well as actively avoid situations and information likely to increase it.[1]

Snowflake Generation (new glossary entry)

individualityI hate it when I think I’ve coined a term only to discover someone beat me to it – and I must really be late to the game if there’s a wikipedia entry! But alas, I was not the first to label post-Millenials Generation Snowflake. Obviously I didn’t think I coined the term snowflake, but I hadn’t realized the entire generation had been thus Christened, but here it is, from wiki…

Generation Snowflake, or Snowflake Generation, is a term used to characterize young adults of the 2010s as being more prone to taking offense and less resilient than previous generations, or too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own. It is considered derogatory. Some sources attribute the characteristics ascribed to Generation Snowflake to methods of parenting and education, particularly those that focus unduly on boosting self-esteem.

If you’re in a listening mood, here’s a show I did on the phenomenon, though I don’t think I was onto the term “snowflake” yet–I was still on “micro-aggression”:

Yeah…I’m gonna need those Knowledge Reports…

Propaganda Report with Perez & Binkley

lumberghIf someone in your family is suspicious, turn him in or be held responsible for his crimes.

Regardless of what really happened in Orlando or what the alleged shooter’s wife did or didn’t do in furtherance of the crime, this case will be used to broaden the scope of how family members can be held accountable in the crimes of relatives. This reminds me of the Scientology expose by Leah Remini that I’ve been watching lately. She explained that family members will submit Knowledge Reports about other family members who have begun questioning the Church (a crime in that organization) because if they don’t tell on the thought crimes of their associates they will be considered guilty of the crime itself. According to Remini et al, as a result of Knowledge Reports, families can be broken up as the guilty party is expelled and “disconnected” from the family members…

Feds Continue to Assert Authority Over Police

Propaganda Report with Perez & Binkley

10-th-tenth-amendment

One by one the Black v Blue Crisis is being used to upsource policing to the feds in contravention of the Tenth Amendment. As per my recent post on Baltimore, this time it’s hitting Chicago and, in my opinion, it won’t stop until every state has the same rules just like it was for drinking ages, abortion, regulation of marriage, etc.

Justice Department Finds Chicago Police Use Excessive Force in Violation of Constitution
City officials have agreed to negotiate a consent decree aimed at reform

CHICAGO—Justice Department officials announced Friday that they found the Chicago Police Department engages in an unconstitutional use of excessive force, including deadly force, following a 13-month investigation.

The probe was launched in December 2015, in the wake of the release of a video in which a police officer killed Laquan McDonald , firing 16 shots as the 17-year-old African-American veered away from the officer.
