The Black Swan Just Had a Hundred Babies

 

The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.  The term is based on an ancient saying that presumed black swans did not exist – a saying that became reinterpreted to teach a different lesson after the first European encounter with them.  The theory was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb starting in 2001 to explain:

  1. The disproportionate role of high-profile, hard-to-predict, and rare events that are beyond the realm of normal expectations in history, science, finance, and technology.
  2. The non-computability of the probability of consequential rare events using scientific methods (owing to the very nature of small probabilities).
  3. The psychological biases that blind people, both individually and collectively, to uncertainty and a rare event’s massive role in historical affairs.

Taleb’s “black swan theory” refers only to unexpected events of large magnitude and consequence and their dominant role in history.  [Source: Wikipedia]

Several red flags that an impending recession, following the inflation we are currently in, may be far more extreme than has been predicted, and quite possibly be something we haven’t seen in our lifetime.  I’m not shouting conspiracy.  I like to have a heads up so I can prepare within my abilities, and so offer the following observations that I’ve encountered:

Posted to another feed on April 6, 2022. This was the first post of what I imagined would be a multi-part series. The rate of change and the velocity of new research items hitting my inbox bowled me over. The subsequent post explains more and I think this is still worth posting here on the […]

Control the Food, Control the People

 

While everyone including myself, is gasping at the grocery check-out aisle here in the US when the tab comes up, I heard on the radio about a massive food cost increase in Germany. I don’t usually check German news.

While the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is wreaking havoc on grain, fertilizer, fuel, and other world exports, I found this story dated November 2021, so before the war, that describes the shift to “sustainable foods,” code for phasing out meat and replacing with plant-based substitutes. In Europe, there is something called a “Nutri-Score” nutrition label, as well as an “animal welfare” label.  This worldwide shift toward processed fake food (it’s what it is) was born out of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset. Make real food more expensive to buy, put restrictions on farmers and ranchers, and they reach their goals. This doesn’t apply to all those cannabis growers. They’re making room for that important crop. More on that later.

Here is another German article from a month ago.

The wealthiest of the wealthy support Democrats. Not only voting for them, not only donating millions to them, not only funding dark money PACs to swing elections for them, but perhaps actually buying elections for them including the presidency. Now, the president they elected wants to stick them with a big tax bill. Dubbed the […]

Are You Getting Nervous? Supply Chain Is the Next Shoe

 

COVID was a life-changing event for the world and it has yet to be solved or rectified. Its origin was somewhere in China, maybe Wuhan (we know that is the origin). We’ve been on high alert for so long, and I’m tired of it. The infection curve went up, came down, went up again, and now it’s leveling off. So can we calm down yet? No, because it seems the next crisis is unfolding and this is in our supply chain. Several have posted what they are seeing, shortages, longer wait times, costs going up. I am getting nervous again when I read sentences like this, from an article called “Inside America’s Broken Supply Chain”:

This month, the median cost of shipping a standard rectangular metal container from China to the West Coast of the United States hit a record $20,586, almost twice what it cost in July, which was twice what it cost in January, according to the Freightos index. Essential freight-handling equipment too often is not where it’s needed, and when it is, there aren’t enough truckers or warehouse workers to operate it.

Who Is That Nutty Klaus Schwab?

 

Some may have heard of The Great Reset, an overhaul of our entire worldwide economic system to usher in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. There is plenty of information on all of that, but who is Klaus Schwab?  He is the president and founder of the World Economic Forum. He is currently the person leading this “great” reset of world society as we know it. Did we know there was a reset coming and did we vote for it? Are all countries subject to these new sweeping changes described in The Great Reset,  that will impact how and if we work, what we own, what we eat, how we commute, how we bank, what we earn, and many other things that we have always taken for granted as personal choices. It gets better…..

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is leaving the old and introducing the new. According to Klaus, this includes an entirely digital world, where “computers” will run everything, and this can be done even on a personal level by inserting a chip into your brain or your hand. This has been in the plan for some time.  Here is Klaus in his own words five years ago – 2016:

I heard a segment on the radio today about last night’s 60 Minute’s episode that featured space age medical technology being developed by the U.S. Military.  I had no idea that they had a massive research lab containing countless disease and virus samples going back hundreds of years, including the Spanish flu. They’ve taken blood […]

Changing America – The World is Noticing

 

“The Europeanized USA” by Dr. Alex Joffe, published at the BESA Institute, is worth your time. This story sums up, in a not-so-tasty nut-shell, how the last bastion of the Free World, The “United” States of America, is doing, and how both our allies and enemies are viewing our current “situation” (demise).  Here’s the opening:

“America is undergoing a rapid transformation founded in a moral panic over race that masks the exercise of class-based power in which technology companies and left-wing politics have united to wield unprecedented control. The outcome will likely be a union of Europeanized states where freedoms are severely curtailed and social cohesion is minimized in favor of dependency.”   A slap in the face of Lady Liberty at best, who welcomed our ancestors to her shores –  a place of safety and freedom, based on a Declaration, and a Constitution, written with the blood of patriots, and the courage of those that fled the tyrannical control from another continent.  At its worst, the imports of slavery and inequality, who saw its imperfections and ugliness, through MLK and JFK and sought a path of reconciliation and opportunity – paths only found in a free society.

What Is Your ESG Credit Score?

 

Major banks are rolling out a new platform and their lending practices will be driven by your ESG score. ESG stands for your Environmental, Social, and Governance. What, you ask, does that mean? What you buy and sell, what charities you support, and your environmental impact are being tracked and translated into a score. I don’t know who the scorekeepers are, but Glenn Beck’s guest had a friend who checked his Merrill Lynch account, and he was quickly educated.He had a low score of 4.7 and didn’t understand how they arrived at that number.

No, this isn’t China, this is now being implemented here in the US, and it will affect whether you qualify for a car loan, a home loan, a business loan, or if you are a good credit risk if you are applying for other things, like a job. Did you buy a gun for example, or give to a particular political party candidate, or do you purchase meat? What kind of car do you drive, and how often do you drive it? Not kidding – this will have an impact on your freedom in the new world that is unfolding. A story in Forbes from 2019 explains it.

Money lenders are grading you by this new system because they are now being graded by the new system. Every company will be graded on their hiring practices and how many minorities and even diverse genders are hired, what their social and environmental footprint is, and they must prove it, as their scorecard will impact their ability to do business in the new world system. Their ideology is also being incorporated into education. From the World Economic Forum’s “The Great Reset,” being implemented into every sector, corner, and cell of our lives, these are the new rules.

@daviddeeble, our Ricochet resident Comedian, posted a not-so-funny observation. In his recent post, his title sounds like a parody, but something happened on the way to total government control: https://ricochet.com/894863/americans-forced-to-work-job-just-to-put-food-on-table/, From his post: “Our studies suggest that there’s a cultural component,” said Theodore M.

What’s the old joke? Oh, yes. “How can you tell when a politician is lying?”

Answer: “His lips are moving.”

If anyone missed these stories, chalk it up to suppression by the news media.  No matter what happens on January 20th, read the report for yourself and draw your own conclusions. My conclusion is this ship has sailed. The Great Reset is and has been underway. The EU, the WEF and other global entities will […]

Why the Biden Choice Seems So Unsettling

 

Elections come and go, but this one feels very different and disturbing. There are the obvious reasons that are and have been playing out before us including the suppression of voting standards, changing the rules in the eleventh hour, extending days of voting beyond Nov. 3rd, and the damaging “laptop” information. Yet…..it’s something more.

When Obama and Biden won in 2008, there was a mantra of hope and change. We had our first black president, and while I didn’t vote for Obama, I was not alarmed at the prospect of this new leadership. In fact, I thought he would be good for the black community as well as other minorities, and therefore, the country. I went back and read through Obama’s acceptance speech. He didn’t apologize for America, he championed it. He said we would rebuild brick by brick our broken cities. There was only the promise of better days for everyone – no exclusions.

Touted as a way to allow international travel to resume before a COVID-19 vaccine is widely available, ‘CommonPass‘, a new app designed to be a clearance mechanism for airline passengers, has already been tested on two flights.

‘The Great Reset’ Trumps the Election

 

There is a lot of pressure on President Trump to win re-election. So let’s add some more. Something called “The Great Reset” is being globally staged, using the COVID-19 virus to accelerate the Reset. Conspiracy theories? Think again. Rapid draconian changes are being planned across all sectors, including financial, economic, social, and religious, with the virus restrictions giving it gas. Loss of freedom, and socialistic measures will replace our Judeo-Christian civilization, with the United States as the last big block in the way to be knocked down.

This month, Time magazine is devoting an entire issue to the global reset. Biden’s stumbling comments on phasing out oil, gas, and fracking, then retracking his statements, was no accident. He was reciting the “Green New Deal” and lest you think this is just AOC crazy talk, think again. The New Deal is a global goal. Time Magazine’s featured guest writers include Black Lives Matter, the International Monetary Fund, The World Economic Forum, and others that describe the elimination of cash and digitizing all transactions, health tracking, extreme hiring and monitoring of private companies and their business practices, and many other prospects. These measures are ready to go, and one writer even described “American life in the year 2023” starting off with a Trump defeat in 2020. They are so confident.

On October 23, Archbishop Vigano sent another letter to President Trump, on the eve of a US presidential election that will impact the entire world, and warning what is coming. You can picture a bullhorn in his hand. I can’t help but think of the passage where the world was eating and drinking as Noah and his family entered the Ark.
