Debunking John Oliver on Venezuela

June 9, 2018

The week of Venezuela’s presidential election, John Oliver dedicated an ENTIRE episode of his HBO show “Last Week Tonight” to the country—full of distortions and highly misleading to progressive-minded people. Responding to Oliver’s major points, Empire Files producer Mike Prysner walks us through the most glaring omissions and misrepresentations

Quick, buy more preps, and learn how to cook prime steak.

Quick, move to the Tropical Rainforest and feed your Chooks, Dogs & Cats to the Pythons.  After that, jump into your used car and drive on exorbitantly priced gas the locals can't afford to the nearest hospital to get the best free medical care you can get in Indonesia.  On the way, stop in at the bank to make sure your Pension Check got deposited because you are going to need the money to pay the locals who are clearing your driveway so you can get deliveries  of new Orange Pi computers to play with.  This will surely save you.  ::)

I'll take the Preps and the Steaks.  The preps are very good tools, and the steaks taste really good.

RE

The tools are all made in China, even Milwaukee and will get expensive soon for Americans if the tariffs hold up, so buy now. Hand powered drill that work like a eggbeater, axes, splitters, shovels, picks, saws and everything to do by hand buy at least 2, or 3 if u can afford.

GO: Perhaps it will lead to revolution but even that is doubtful.

The government will implode and collapse.  There won't need to be a violent revolution against the current powerful forces.  Only a need to work out how your local community intend to keep on doing things without electricity, phones, internet, mains water, sewerage and money/banking/shops. 

I don't know why nobody wants to discuss what programs should be shaped like to prevent wasting time and energy on creating another BAU system.  We are entering a time of dramatic change and we haven't even worked out what the "revolution" needs to be about.

Palloy, Your zeal and views are appreciated but it still escapes me at how taxing the rich to give ten or twenty million poor folks the ability to by a new SUV and three bedroom home in the suburbs, as well as credit card to dine in the nations thousands of steak houses and other eateries, solves the problems your concerned with.

Nor do I see how these poor unfortunates remaining so causes collapse or revolution.  :icon_scratch:

More logical to me would be trying to make everyone poor rather than the poor middle class, for someone who views the world situation as you.

There will not be a revolution.  There will be mayhem and lots of shooting when the police go home but it will not be a revolution.  Revolution is impossible.

Right.

You've seen our work in Fallujah, yes?

Exactly.  No revolution but plenty of mayhem.  Every revolutionary is surveilled by a face-book follower here.  Algorithms will identify them, these algorithms are already hard at work, then what we did in Fallujah happens to our revolutionaries.  The sheep then aimlessly mill about and starve to death instead of marching single file and starving to death led by the revolutionaries with nowhere to go.  Regardless sheep die because they can't feed themselves.



Revolutions succeed only if revolutionaries have food security.  Our food security is controlled by the machine so no revolution is possible here.  Since the early 70's corn syrup from the machine has metamorphosed the American citizen into inert vermin lumps not unlike the insect man written about by Kafka.



No revolution is possible here.  Besides having no food security America has been weakened by generations where the unfit have flourished to taunt Darwin's ghost.  That results in not all people walking down the street alone talking to themselves are on a cell phone.  Some don't even have a phone but enough do have phones to ruin any revolution. 

A people as diverse as America needs ideas around which a revolution can build.  These ideas are essential to unite the people.  Simple appeal to selfishness and greed only works when a revolution is fanned to flames by members from a single tribe.  In that case simple tribalism is enough so no intellectual gymnastics are needed to unite the people.  But in our case such ideas are essential and they now have to be tweeted out as there is no other way to get them around.  There are drones for that.

What Ideas can America rally behind.
  • What's behind door number 3 ?
  • Does it come with free shipping ?
  • Are curly fries extra ?
Such ideas do not a revolution make and other ideas are media managed out of existence as soon as they get any traction. 

Back in the day these things did not flash GPS locations to the king but we have nothing like them anymore.



All our devices have metadata which screams come and get me to the nearest cell tower or internet switch.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.

I was talking about a recipe to keep BAU going.  Of course I don't want to actually keep it going.  Taxing the rich is going to have to be very much harder than you are anticipating - in Europe, governments take 50% or more of GDP in tax, and then provide the people with free health services, free education, unemployment support that lasts for ever, and so on.

Re: Wealth Inequality FEMA Barges enroute to Hawaii
« Reply #23 on: June 11, 2018, 06:07:35 PM »
http://www.someonesbones.com/blog/fema-barges-en-route-to-hawaii/

A flotilla of FEMA barges, each able to hold 2000 people in cramped conditions, set sail from a secret staging area near San Diego and is currently en route to Hawaii, says a FEMA employee speaking under condition of anonymity.

The vessels, he said, departed California on June 5 and, travelling at a speed of 20 knots, will arrive in Hawaii on the eleventh. Rather than berth at Port Allen or Hiwo Harbor, the ships will drop anchor ten miles offshore and use powerboats to ferry displaced persons to one of three FEMA housing ships. But FEMA is on no mission of mercy; anyone escorted onto a FEMA barge will be incarcerated and transported to a mainland FEMA internment camp in Region IX. There, they will be held captive by a controversial agency with a long history of imprisoning people against their will.

FEMA is trying to avoid the same mistakes it made during Hurricane Harvey, which caused $125 billion dollars in damages to the Houston metropolitan area. Floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes and displaced over 50,000 people. In the storm’s aftermath, FEMA sprang into action, but not to help. FEMA barges the size of container ships were spotted near Port Arthur and Corpus Christi, and agents acting under the authority of the United States Government herded 17,000 dispossessed people into floating prisons.

“FEMA wants to be discreet in Hawaii. They don’t want to leave a big footprint like they left in Texas. That’s why they’re keeping the big ships ten miles offshore. I hope people are smart enough to avoid us and not get on the boats. Otherwise, they’ll be carted off to camps just like what happened to the people in Texas who haven’t been heard from now in over a year. I don’t know what happened to them—I don’t want to know. I know everyone put on a boat is micro chipped and pretty much imprisoned in the worst of possible conditions,” our source explained.

Single prisoners, he added, are housed in six-by-nine foot compartments with a cot and a toilet. Families are given slightly larger accommodations, but the atmosphere still reeks of a jail cell. Doors remain locked twenty-four hours day. Everyone receives cold cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and lukewarm soup or other surplus entrées for dinner.

“There is no consideration for hygiene or sanitary conditions,” our source said.  “Lice infestations are common. There are no shower facilities. Rats are everywhere. I’ve heard stories of people getting gnawed to bits in their sleep, but that might be hyperbole. There’s typically only one doctor and one nurse aboard each ship, and they don’t even want to be there. If I were in Hawaii, I’d rather deal with the lava and volcanic ash than my own people.”

He said FEMA will likely trick Hawaiians onto the ships. “They’ll say there’s a cruise ship waiting offshore to shuffle them to safety, or some other outlandish lie. By the time anyone sees the FEMA coffin carrier looming on the horizon, it’s too late. What will they do? Jump into the water and swim for it seven or eight miles from land?”

In closing, he offers a few words of wisdom to any Hawaiian encountering a FEMA agent: Run, hide, but do not get on the ship.

So...I made it through 5 minutes before the evil of colonial powers in 1499 were deemed the core problem that led to all other problems. And of course we can do better than that by going back to Noah..but perhaps I should just ask, what do you think the most important reason is for the current collapse of Venezuela? And if it is referenced in that video, can you point me at the minute:sec mark so I can review that? Assuming that we don't roll the clock back all the way to Noah of course.

Summer Camp for the Ultra-Wealthy Teaches Kids How to Stay Rich
« Reply #26 on: August 02, 2018, 05:14:32 AM »
Attendees at Next Gen functions hosted by the likes of UBS, Citi Private Bank, and Credit Suisse will one day rank among the world’s most sought-after clients.

Fifty-two heirs to lavish fortunes luxuriate in sleek splendor at the Four Seasons.

They sip designer lattes and speak the language of wealth. The talk is of money, noblesse oblige, technology, Formula One. At lunchtime, out comes chilled rosé, with a tasting led by Jon Bon Jovi’s son Jesse.

Welcome to Camp Rich.
