Onebornfree's Special Scam Alerts [no.21] - Nov. 5th, 2017

"The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic"   
 H.L. Mencken

 "My first rule- I don't believe anything the government tells me- nothing!- ZERO!" George Carlin


The Investment/Economic Predictions Scam:

obf sez: A good piece on the fallacies of what is usually called "technical analysis" in investment circles:

"....Let me be clear. I am not talking about Chart Makers, diligent folks who map the crust and waterways of the planet. Nor am I degrading the Chartists, those English political reformers, active between 1838—48...."

"....I'm talking about those arrogant snobs who promote the belief that the future performance of markets can be predicted from analyzing yesterday's lines and dots on a page.

This group is deadly dangerous: They leave empty bank accounts and broken spirits in their wake.

Look, if there are customers willing to pay the Gypsy lady to read tea leaves, that's OK with me. After all, she entertains her clients — but never presents herself as possessed with a body of scientific knowledge........":

obf sez: good news, dear reader, there is no need to rely on "chartists", nor any other type of  financial fortune-teller to safeguard your precious savings. See:

The "Meat Glue" Scam

Is Your Dinner Steak “Glued” Together?

"Transglutaminase is an animal-blood enzyme used as “meat glue” to create a prime filet steak, which many cooks and eaters can’t tell the difference."

The Las Vegas Shooting Scam

Why Has The Las Vegas Massacre Disappeared From The News Cycle?

"It is without a doubt, our news cycle – in the age of 24/7 constant-connectedness – moves at a breakneck pace. With so much information and news reaching us, it’s easy to become overburdened and burned out on the world around us and the things taking place. It is true, too, that the mainstream media dictates what stays center in the mind of the public and what is allowed to fade away and be forgotten. It is of the utmost importance we remain aware – however exhaustive it may be – of stories that just don’t add up.
Enter the Las Vegas shooting; the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history..."

The Big Pharma/ M.D./ Allopathic "Medicine" Scam

[obf sez: A very important examination of how big- government sanctified allopathic medicine systems and pharmaceuticals came to dominate in the US, China and Europe. { one word hint : "Rockefeller"},  and how that "top- down" system has inevitably led to the recent scam currently known as "Obamacare" . See also, "The "Robber Baron" Scam" below. P.S. , I'm 66, and have not been to an allopathic "doctor" or hospital for 25+ years- I make it a point to avoid them all like the plague!]:

What Your MD Doesn’t Tell You Can Harm You

"The opioid problems notwithstanding, has it ever occurred to healthcare consumers and allopathic medicine’s patients as to why you aren’t told the warnings, contraindications or adverse effects regarding the Rx-prescription MDs give you, often as many as 3 “scripts” at a time, when no studies have been done to determine if there are adverse reactions or contraindications from taking various chemical pharmaceuticals and legal drugs simultaneously?

Doctors are swift to advise patients about not taking vitamins, supplements, herbal and natural remedies—that’s a known given.  However, are they as quick to tell patients about the chemicals they are prescribing?....."

The Tesla/ Elon Musk Scam

A Sneak Peek at the Economy of Tomorrow
"....the losses are getting bigger; a record $619 million in capital disappeared in the last quarter alone......"

The Central Bank/Federal Reserve:

"Can Gradual Interest-Rate Tightening Prevent a Bust?"

" it possible by means of a gradual monetary policy to undo the damage inflicted to the economy by previous loose monetary policies? According to mainstream economic thinking, it would appear that this is the case...."

The "Robber Baron" Scam:

"The Truth About the "Robber Barons"

"...As common as it is to speak of "robber barons," most who use that term are confused about the role of capitalism in the American economy and fail to make an important distinction — the distinction between what might be called a market entrepreneur and a political entrepreneur. ..."

The Missile Defense Scam:

"Don't Trust the US Government on Missile Defense":

"....The claim of 97% reliability for the U.S.’s anti-missile defenses is being challenged by Cirincione and others, who argue that the United States can only “shoot down some…missiles some of the time.” They make a number of arguments that are quite convincing, even to a layman who has no understanding of the physics involved......"

The Immigration Scam:

""....Arguments about immigration will always be with us. But it’s important to understand that the real issue isn’t freedom for immigrants – it’s your freedom......... new laws to limit immigration will affect you considerably. You may think those laws will keep America pure, but they will succeed only in taking more of your liberty."

The Public Education Scam:

"Indoctrination Has Always Been the Goal of Progressive Education"

"..A prime example of this is the Edina public schools, where teachers have been giving lessons driven through the lens of race, class, gender, and other social justice norms.

As reports indicate, such news has not gone over very well with parents, many of whom express shock and disappointment that their children are being indoctrinated rather than educated.

But these parents really shouldn’t be surprised, for such an approach to education has been touted by progressives since at least the 1930s, if not sooner......"

The Donald Trump Scam:

Trick or Treat: One Year Later, Is Trump a Blessing or a Curse to the Deep State?

"...the American police state is still alive and well and flourishing.
Nothing has changed.

Rather than draining the corrupt swamps of Washington, as he repeatedly promised, Trump and his brand of reality TV politics have merely redirected our attention.

Trust me, the swamps are still stagnant with corruption......."

The Technocracy Scam:

"Brave New World and individual power"

"Huxley’s 1932 novel about a World State and its version of Utopia is still one of the most important and relevant novels of our time.

It is the companion piece to Orwell’s 1984. The overt brutal force has been removed from the equation in Brave New World. Instead: all births are synthetic, hatched in artificial womb factories, with accompanying genetic manipulation; no more nuclear families; no more monogamy; education is achieved through hypnotic sleep-learning; a caste system is engineered so the lower, less intelligent classes are happy with their lot, and the upper-level “alphas” occupy the top positions; the castes have little interest in associating with each other. Technocracy has triumphed......."

The "Nazis Were Capitalists" Scam

"The Myth of Nazi Capitalism"

 [ obf sez;  the Nazi's were socialists, through and through]:

"It is now the conventional wisdom that the Nazis were capitalists, not socialists, despite their misleading name “The National Socialist German Workers Party.” Anybody with a college degree knows they were capitalistic, if not in name, then at least in principle.

Of course, this is all nonsense. But the question does arise, where did this myth come from?..."

The Communism/Socialism/ Marxism Scam:

"The Bolshevik Great Experiment: One Hundred Years Later"

"Stealth socialism: follow the money":

".........The federal government hands out money like an endless Niagara, to private companies and to itself—and in this way, it controls the operations of a major part of the economy. THAT IS SOCIALISM. BY STEALTH.

If you don’t think so, imagine what would happen if the government withdrew its funding.

Karl Marx might have quibbled about this form of socialism, but in the end he would see its intent and practical results:

“Well, the government puts onerous taxes on the people, and bankrolls a major portion of the economy…hmm, not bad, all in all. It’s a start.”

Of course, the super-rich secreted their wealth, long ago, in non-profit foundations. And they—the Rockefellers and Carnegies, and so on—they’re the people who want to expand socialism........"

"The Insatiable Utopia"

"In February 1917, a 30-year-old Bolshevik named Valerian Osinsky wrote to his 22-year-old mistress about a coming revolution that would wipe away czarism and deliver what Christianity couldn't: the kingdom of heaven on earth. "Only in the world of insatiable utopia," he wrote, "will the simplest ethical rules become real and free from exceptions and contradictions."

Twenty-one years later, he would be executed as an "enemy of the people" for his blasphemies against the Soviet Union.

Stories like that abound in the Berkeley historian Yuri Slezkine's 1,100-page epic, The House of Government, which chronicles the lives of elite Bolsheviks and their families from their early days of revolutionary awakening through the overthrow of the czar, the building of "the dictatorship of the proletariat," Joseph Stalin's Great Terror, and their children's loss of faith. ....":

"This year marks the hundredth anniversary of one of the worst mistakes ever made: the Communist revolution in Russia."

Communist regimes went on to kill about 100 million people. Most died in famines after socialist tyrants forced people to practice inefficient collective farming. Millions of others were executed in political purges...........That won't stop some Americans from celebrating Communism's anniversary. A day of anti-Trump protests is scheduled for Nov. 4, and I'm sure some protestors will wave hammer-and-sickle flags. Some will wear Che Guevara shirts.
A few commentators will call the protesters "idealistic" but impractical. They shouldn't. We should call them supporters of mass murder......"

The JFK Assassination Scam:

"The Kennedy Assassination":

"...If you really want to know who killed President Kennedy and why, read JFK and the Unspeakable. Yes, there are other carefully researched books that you can read.

Douglass concludes that Kennedy was murdered because he turned to peace. He was going to work with Khrushchev to end the Cold War. He refused the CIA US air cover for the Bay of Pigs invasion. He rejected the Joint Chiefs’ Operation Northwoods, a plan to conduct false flag attacks on Americans that would be blamed on Castro to justify regime change..."

The "Brain = Consciousness" Scam:

"The brain vs. consciousness: the phony debate and the real debate"

"...Nearly all brain researchers insist that consciousness arises from the functions of the brain.

These researchers concede they don’t know HOW consciousness arises—but “they’re getting there.” They’re making progress. This is their story and they’re sticking to it.....""......But suppose all their fundamental assertions are completely wrong? Suppose they’re never going to prove consciousness arises from the brain? Suppose all their efforts in this direction are dependent on nothing more than circular reasoning—assuming what they’re trying to prove?......"
