    My favorite fish, further butchered beyond recognition, by insane humans bent on greed. And hopefully angering the gods to retribution for the crime against one of god’s creatures…
    Without drastic action; the wild salmon are doomed to extinction.
    Remember; whole nations existed because of the salmon; without which, they never would have thrived…
    Of course, retribution will be all the genetic scientist’s bad kharma coming back; on all of us; after all, we permitted it…

    If we get through 2020, we won’t get through 2024. Remembering these words by then won’t help. The biggest story in media is silence. If a tree falls in the woods, and no hears it, did it really ever fall?

    If you are 15 years old, emissions rose 30% in your lifetime.
    If you are 30 years old, emissions rose 60% in your lifetime.
    After 30 years of trying, solar and wind are just 2% of total world energy use.
    To avoid 2 C, emissions must drop 50% in 10 years, and 100% in 20 years.

    5 of 13 major tipping points are triggered like dominos below 2 C.

    When these 5 tipping points begin, they reinforce each other and trigger the other 8.

    Runaway hothouse earth cannot be stopped or reversed once started.

    The earth will take many, many thousands of years to recover.

    Runaway mass extinction cannot be stopped or reversed once started.

    The earth will take many millions of years to recover. If indeed, it does.

    Runaway mass extinction is preceding runaway hothouse climate change.

    Usually, hothouse happens before mass extinction, not this time. Nobody wants to admit it.

    There are 25 billion chickens on earth. Humans and livestock are 98% of all land vertebrate biomass.

    10,000 years ago, humans and livestock were 0.03% of all land vertebrate biomass.

    Livestock production caused 80% of species extinctions.

    Virtual extinction precedes total extinction, where populations become too small to be sustained.

    We ignore virtual extinction.

    All male vertebrates are being biologically emasculated, feminized, sterilized, stupified and crazyfied. If you want tons of data on how and why, go to

    Top 20% income earners = 70% of emissions.

    = 0% for corporations, NGOs and governments

    = 100% private universal basic income

    The first time I read your “list”, it was interesting; but the 3rd time is somewhat pedantic, don’t ya think?
    There is a dynamic in the daily, and things do change; even when not for the better, yes?

    “Pelosi Folds: Confirms House Will “Reluctantly” Pass Trump’s Emergency Border Bill”

    Gosh, somehow leverage appeared. 21/6, Iran [non]strike. 25/6, Democrats suddenly agree with Trump and approve border funding. Is that because the NYT themselves reported that the airstrikes, including their targets, were all leaked to Iran in minutes? And would that be Treason, Sedition, or just Espionage?

    Sadly, this border support is being vetoed by AOC and corporations: AOC has Wayfair refuse to give children mattresses (what???) and the Banks – who are regulated by the government on the grounds that they will be impartial and provide service to all equally – are refusing to fund detention centers. You can do that – really. However, you need a court order to explain why you feel you can discriminate against customers on the basis of their creed or political affiliation. Good luck getting one. If not, you’re in violation of civil rights and have your license pulled. …If anybody enforced the law anymore.

    And really: Wells Fargo and AOC WANT children sleeping on the floor? They WANT there to be no bank accounts to buy food with? Don’t know what to say. And this is after yesterday’s scandal of AOC wearing $1,000 outfit and $600 watch to do a selfie photo-op crying about “the childrens,” “concentration camps.” She was actually crying over an empty parking lot, I assume because when she showed up she couldn’t find any bad conditions at that facility, otherwise, why not some pictures of the kids? We don’t go to Dachau and take pictures of Robert Capa in his Brooks Brothers. Owens did a tour last year showing what is pretty normal US detention conditions: 3 free meals, free doctor, playing soccer and video games, watching cable TV, and with the new age, practicing yoga. Sure you need a day pass but better than Hondouras. Better conditions than Assange and Manning. Or me. Sign me up.

    But hey, if it was reported by an adult in the media, that’s your personal guarantee that it’s the exact OPPOSITE of true. As we’ve seen in the last 24 hours, anything that’s true, like 2016/2020 election-rigging by google, is purged off the media in hours. All the people de-platformed, de-banked, and slandered. Ask Assange.

    You know what the real kicker in that story was? The mattresses she was denying had been bought by a non-profit charity who were helping the kids, not an INS/DHS agency. So here people, perhaps even Republicans, are trying to donate over top of their tax dollars, but they are not ALLOWED to help immigrants even privately. That’s your #Progressives. That’s your love and caring.™ That’s how bad they want to gin up this border crisis. Then they’ll complain “death camp”, “TrumpTrump”. “Stop the hate of children sleeping on floors.” #StarkRavingMadness.

    Here’s an idea: swap your $1000 dress for Peebles, sell your watch for a Timex, and use the $1550 to buy 10 mattresses for kids wholesale instead of actively preventing ME from buying mattresses for migrant kids. And to think I thought they only wanted to help using MY money, not theirs. Nope. They actually want BOTH my money AND not to help at all. #SocialismInAction. Check 150 years of history if you think I’m kidding.

    Speaking of:
    “Large US Companies Are Getting Bigger While the Small Wither Away (MW)”

    Because #Socialism. Or #Fascism, which is the national version of #socialism, either way. Government support and control for my pals, with complete backstop and guaranteed profits, while #NOTpals, the little guys, that annoying competition to my piss-poor monopoly service, is run out of business. Bankruptcy for them, bailouts for my friends! Golf at three, Winston? Yay! Muh “private corporations can do whatever they want.” Yeah, under socialism, apparently. Under Capitalism, they’d all go bankrupt and stop being a menace.

    “The First Genetically Modified Animals Approved For US Consumption (AP)”

    They already said that because of mating attraction, the release of one salmon would completely destroy the wild population in 10 generations. But when has science ever gone wrong? I mean since 1815 when Mary Shelley wrote “Frankenstein”. Every time? But not this time. This one time, nothing will go wrong again.

    John Day
    The second night of Democratic debate went to Kamala Harris, with good wordmanship and instincts. Kamala got lots of Google searches, the new measure, but also subject to Google’s “social responsibility” department… (I’m told that Tulsi Gabbard’s search wave has been attributed to “Russian ‘bots” by some). What course does Kamala have planned? Hold that thought for awhile. Medicare for all is the only thing agreed upon so far. Who has a clear vision for the upcoming economic reset? Bernie Sanders has shaped political discourse and direction. Is he just too old? (Despite his rebel persona, he has always cut good deals for business.)

    Moon of Alabama digs into the different presentations of Tulsi Gabbard’s first night “win”/”loss” as portrayed by Google searches, alternate media, and network media/pundits. She was supposed to be nowhere, not the front of that modest pack. That place was reserved for Elizabeth Warren.

    Here is fairly broadband proof that Warrior-Sister Gabbard won the first night debate, real polls and all.

    Here more of what Gabbard opposes, and the others ignore.
    Venezuela foils attempt on President Maduro’s life: government
    An attempt to assassinate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has failed, the crisis-hit country’s government said. The leader has accused the United States of being behind an alleged coup plot.

    CIA funded Venezuelan opposition denies it all. It’s OK, they didn’t have to be much of a part of it. Mostly out-of-that-loop.

    Pat Buchanan says Trump should trade Bolton for Gabbard as National Security Advisor. I think Trump never had that choice, and that train left the station a long time ago. Buchanan’s point goes farther, to what America wants, which is not supposed to be on America’s menu in 2020.

    The end of Deutsche as a global player. It fires half its global equities workers.

    Deutsche Bank To Fire Up To 20,000: One In Six Full-Time Positions

    While Deutsche Bank finally delivered some good news for a change to its long-suffering investors, when it miraculously failed to fail the latest Fed stress test, on Friday the chronically sick bank reverted to its “cutting into muscle” baseline when the largest German lender with the €45 trillion notional derivatives was said to be preparing “to cut as much as half its global workforce in equities trading as part of a broad restructuring to boost profitability”, according to Bloomberg with the WSJ adding that the total number could be between 15,000 and 20,000 job cuts, or more than one in six full-time positions globally.

    The cuts being contemplated by senior executives reflect an acceleration of Deutsche Bank’s downsizing and another major pullback from its global ambitions. If followed through, the reduction would represent 16% to 22% of Deutsche Bank’s workforce of 91,463 employees, as disclosed by the bank as of the end of March.

    According to the proposed plan the bank will eliminate hundreds of positions in equities trading and research, as well as derivatives trading, and is expected to start informing staff of cuts – including in the U.S. and Asia – as soon as next month. Rates trading is also affected.

    This is a Hopi Indian word used as the name of a film which is a collection of film clips in timelapse and slomo to a soundtrack by Philip Glass. I think it is a film which can change how you see the world.

    According to a Hopi Dictionary koyaanisqatsi is defined as

    “life of moral corruption and turmoil”
    “life out of balance”

    The film also defines the word as

    “crazy life”
    “life in turmoil”
    “life disintegrating”
    “a state of life that calls for another way of living”

    To me the key word is ‘balance’ [or ‘fairness’]:

    – True capitalism may be the most efficient way to manufacture goods, but socialism is needed to make sure the benefits are spread fairly.

    – Defence is important to a country but not when the cost leaves the country in a ramshackle state.

    – Industry does need to have some influence on governnment but not to such an extent that it controls the government

    – People should be allowed to express their point of view but not to use their influence to stop other people expressing their point of view.

    – Security is important for a country but not when it turns it into a surveillance state.

    Wherever you look things seem out of balance and there does not seem to be any effective forces trying to get things back into balance.


    @ anticlimactic
    Trump said, “Drain the swamp”
    Still waiting.
    Democrats are saying, We have got to stop Pharma, med., wall street, buying politicians, etc.”
    Still the same thing.
    Still waiting.
    Sanders says, The people have got to revolt against the inequalities and scamming.

    Like you said, “Wherever you look things seem out of balance and there does not seem to be any effective forces trying to get things back into balance.”


    It’s a little bit amusing to see someone bring up Koyaanisqatsi as if it’s something new here, when i’ve referred to it so many times. Example from Sep 2017:

    The Koyaanisqatsi Economy

    Due to its initial success, Reggio and Glass made two sequels to the film, Powaqqatsi (1988), meaning “parasitic way of life” or “life in transition”, and Naqoyqatsi (2002) which means “life as war”, “civilized violence” and “a life of killing each other”. If you haven’t seen them, they come highly recommended.

    Koyaanisqatsi is a fitting term to describe not only our world in general, but also our economies. They are severely out of balance, and getting more so every day. But economies, like nature, need at least a minimum in balance. If that disappears, this lack of balance will tip them over. It is somewhat strange that this is not being recognized, and not even discussed.

    It’s as if people think that when almost all wealth goes to a select very few, an economy can still continue to function. It can’t. The rich getting continually richer means the poor getting poorer (as overall growth is slow or non-existent), until the latter reach a point where they can no longer afford even basic necessities. That’s when parts of an economy will start dying, in the same vein that parts of a living body, an organism, die off when the supply of blood, nutrients and oxygen is cut off.


    I’m not exactly sure what it is that you say is not being discussed about an economy being out of balance when that’s pretty much all Bernie and Elizabeth Warren talk about. As does AOC in her House questioning putting on full display how the rules allow and in fact support corruption in Congress.

    You can buy that watch on Ebay all day long for $138 and if you’ll notice in the photo of her, everyone was wearing white and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a $1000 outfit. God forbid a pretty woman running for Congress would dress stylishly. And by the way, the press takes pictures of AOC in a vein similar to most celebrities. Children in prison camps, not so much.


    Boeing pretty much encapsulates what went wrong with the financialization and globalization of the West that has been spurred on by exploding inequality. Workers and the environment are eliminated from economic decisions. With global corporations and trade pacts superior to nation states; a multitude of anomalies are now baked into human society.

    When people don’t matter there is no incentive to design and build safe airplanes. That costs money. Workplaces become toxic. The life expectancy in the UK and USA declines. The US dollar becomes a military weapon. Monopolies buy up innovation. Breaking the law is punished by fines which are added to the cost of doing business, not jail time. The environment (that has no concern about the fate of the human beings) bites back. Families migrate to survive. Nationalist and globalist oligarchs go to war over the spoils. Last week the global economy was 10 minutes away from collapse by an American air attack on Iran.


    Good summary, VVet:

The US dollar becomes a military weapon. Monopolies buy up innovation. Breaking the law is punished by fines which are added to the cost of doing business, not jail time.
