Horrible Service Situation- Need Advice

2020.09.15 19:29 xHourglassx Horrible Service Situation- Need Advice

Listen to my tale of woe and please give me some advice. I don't know where to go from here.
I took delivery of a Model Y in San Antonio, Texas in June. My wife and I live in Odessa, TX, which is about 6 hours from the nearest service center. For some reason, I wasn't offered home delivery for the vehicle; it was fine, we made a getaway weekend out of picking up the car. It appeared to be mostly perfect, with a few minor panel gap issues that I felt I could address later. While I absolutely love the car, I did notice two potentially major issues later on. For one thing, there was a bad leak in the rear hatch that would cause water to spill into the back when it rained. Additionally, the front driver's side wheel makes a loud clicking or grinding sound whenever it's driven forward or backward at low speeds. The sound cannot be heard from inside the car, but it's very apparent when standing outside or driving with the window down. It's concerning.
I made a service appointment for August 28 in Austin. I was quoted a turnaround time of just a few hours and offered some Uber credits. Because we're from 6 hours away, I fussed until we got a loaner. I don't like to be "that guy", but I knew that if something went wrong with the car, we'd have no way back home. Sure enough, a few hours later I checked my app and saw that the estimated completion date was now September 4th. Had I not begged for a loaner, we would have been stranded 6 hours from home. Anyway, we took the loaner back home with us and awaited updates on the car. September 4th came around and I never received any updates by text or email regarding the car. I started messaging the number they gave me and I was told no work had been done yet. I cannot fathom why I was even given the appointment on the 28th if they were so busy they couldn't touch the car for a week.
On September 8th, I suddenly got notification that the car was ready for pickup! Awesome. Except when I checked the invoice for tech notes, I noticed that they didn't even try to replicate the sound from the wheel because "It was thunder storming and so it was too loud outside for us to hear any noises from the car". Baffled, I messaged the tech and asked whether someone could please double-check once the storm dissipated. He insisted that they needed me to make a second appointment; they were in a rush to get the loaner back as they're in "high demand". I explained that the 12-13 hour round trip commute is logistically very difficult for us, and I can't simply take it back for a second service appointment for quite some time. Conversely, it would only take a couple seconds to get in the car and replicate the noise. It's very apparent. Plus I was out of state visiting family because a close relative had just died. I couldn't have gone to pick up the car that day even if I'd wanted to. What the tech said next floored me. "Sorry to hear about your family. Can a close friend possibly take your loaner from your house while you're away and drive it to the service center for us?" I didn't dignify that with a response.
I can't get in touch with anyone from the service center. The email address I was given weeks ago has yielded nothing as the guy won't respond. The messaging service auto-replies with "Your service appointment has concluded". I can drive all the way to Austin and get the car, but if it's still making a grinding sound then I won't feel comfortable taking it on a 300-mile trip back home (across the West Texas desert, no less). If I leave it there, they may not even touch it unless I make a new appointment (soonest opening is weeks from now), and god forbid there is a storm outside and they decide working on cars is suddenly impossible until it's clear skies again.
Is there any way to escalate this? What would you do?

2020.09.10 22:43 nise7en Austin, Texas & Mountain Biking - Interview Seth Buckner

Copied and pasted from medium, https://medium.com/@zacharysisson/austin-texas-mountain-biking-interview-seth-buckner-1dc89ac87a49 If you want to see the original post with pictures, see the instruction below: To get past the medium paywall, copy the link, and DM yourself the link on Twitter, and you are past the paywall! Enjoy!
One of the pushers and movers of the ATX mountain bike scene.
After I posted the last two pieces Austin, Texas & Mountain Biking, and Austin, Texas & Mountain Biking — Community. People have reached out to me, recommending me to connect with Seth. I did have the opportunity to learn more things from him. Interviewing Seth made me understand more of Austin’s MTB scene. Seth is one of the icons that contributes to the growth of the scene in a little/big city, Austin, Texas. I added you on Facebook because your name seems to be popping up on places I looked for Austin mountain biking. What is your story? — My Name is Seth Buckner, 34 years old; I’ve worked at Apple Corporate as my full-time career since 2011.
How long have you been around in Austin? — Born and raised in north Austin, TX, my entire life.
What got you into gravity bikes? — Well, the long story.
I have tons of childhood memories riding mountain bikes as a young kid. Most memorably, in the super rocky dry creek beds in a greenbelt behind a house grew up in, riding in the rain and thunderstorms through the neighborhood on a silver hardtail that said “alloyminium” on the side. I raced BMX (at the original Capitol City BMX location off FM620 in the late ’90s) until I was about 13. After that was involved in other sports (skateboarding and competitive NPPL paintball) for most of my adolescent years. I got re-introduced to biking/mountain biking after getting a DUI when I was 19 years old in 2006. I lost my driver’s license for a year and bought a Kona Hardtail that was way too small for me from the pawnshop in a ghetto part of town.
I started getting into mountain biking and urban assault free ride type of stuff. The first actual mountain bike I ever built was a 2007 Kona stinky deluxe 26 inch Freeride bike off of wheelworld.com with a frame and a build kit; that was my full-time trail bike. Like a 42-pound nine-speed free ride bike in the Texas summer heat. But I like big hit type stuff, and I’m glad I was dumb enough to start on a rig like that. Haha.
Over the years, I slowly progressed as a mountain biker and got into downhill parks. 2008–2009ish at Trestle Winter Park, CO was my first ever DH park trip; I fell in love with that and the mountains. I eventually started going to local enduro races also.
Seth, I’ve had people tell me that you have pushed the limits of mountain biking in Austin. How is this so? — I will call myself a very dedicated and inclined (pun intended) trail builder who wants to stamp my mark on my Austin hometown, and Texas state. With gnarly trails that I love to ride for myself and the mountain biking community. I have grown to be super passionate about trail building. I built pretty much the entire cat mountain trail system over the last five years, built a full 10 stage enduro specific trail system at Bandera bike park in 2019, and now building trails at camp eagle. Where my race timing company Victory Racing — u/victoryracingevents just had a two day, eight staged shuttle supported enduro race last weekend, and that was incredible!
What drives you the most? — Mountain bike life is easy to love. Traveling places bring in the greatest form of outdoors — the mountains! I love to build trails. And shred them with my friends and also blow outta-towner people away with Austin mountain biking. Texas shredding is the real deal!
From start to finish, I get to be creative out in the woods and use that as a huge outlet for me, and then I get to have tons of fun riding those trails I built with my dog and my friends.
I quit drinking altogether in January of 2017. With the trail building being such an outlet, it was one of the easiest, non-wavering things I’ve ever done as far as a big lifestyle change. I don’t think at all I would’ve done it as well without all the trail building to occupy me. It also helped me get better as a rider.
What gets you to go out on the land with a chainsaw, tools, and a few friends? — Trail building is super meditative and therapeutic for me. You being out there in the woods either alone, with your dog or with your friends. Fresh air, away from all the city stuff, exercise, and you get to be creative designing and building trail. It’s just like a bunch of grown men acting like kids out in the woods but with power tools and more focused visions.
Tell me about 512 Freeride and your involvement? — I helped manage and promote the free ride 512 mountain biking club and help to get people into that style of mountain biking. Urban assault, freeride, downhill parks, Red Bull Rampage watch events, dig and ride events. FR512 is Still in existence, and there’s an awesome mountain bike club with a good group of people running it! The Rocky Hill Ranch Freeride 512 location is unique, and I would recommend anybody to check them out.
What about Victory Racing — Victory Racing was born in early 2019 when we were gaining momentum building Bandera Bike Park. The business/property owner that I was building the trails for wanted to start having races there. We came to a loan agreement, and I purchased a complete SportIdent active timing system. Capable of 8 stages and 200 racers per day in its current configuration and beacon/timing chip count. I started Victory Racing Company and Race Team.
What I believe makes Victory Racing unique is that we create the trails/venues where we are hosting the races. We are the first ever to provide full shuttle supported events (Bandera Race #2 & 2020 Shred Eagle @ Camp Eagle). Our events generally have more stages per day than other promoter’s events (all except one have been eight stages per day vs. others’ 4–5 stages max per day). Victory Racing also tends to race higher-level-difficulty race stages. They are not always the most beginner-friendly compared to other Enduro promoters in the state of Texas. There is a Risk vs. Reward balance when choosing to race higher-level stages with potentially higher consequences. Still, our events have all been great successes with extremely low incidences with rider safety. They seem to be providing the ultimate Texas enduro racing experience based on participant and racer feedback.
Dude, what’s going on at Cat Mtn.? — Oh man! Cat Mtn. is my pride and joy, my happy place. What I am most proud of In my life to date. It also has a cool story behind it, and I’d love to tell you.
About 11–12ish years ago, a couple of local Austin guys (who now all live in Angel Fire, NM at one of the best DH parks in the USA) pioneered and built just a small few of like 2–3 rowdy DH bandit trails with some really-super-sketchy wooden works of trail art big hit features in the woods, at cat mountain. A 108-acre wooden canyon nestled right in the middle of a very nice neighborhood in the hills of northwest Austin. Me, Wesley Crow, Brandon Goodman, and others, used to go out there and hit these wooden ladder drops and some single-hit drops and stuff like that.
Years went by, the pioneer guys all moved out of Texas (to Angelfire, NM, where they still reside), the woods took back the trails, and the wooden features rotted. Cat mtn. just went back to a patch of woods.
I went to buy a set of brakes and a bleed kit from a guy on craigslist. The dude would only talk to me through email and wouldn’t give me his phone number, but gave me his home address to meet him there at 6:30 pm one day. I drive there, park in front of his house for like an hour. The guy no shows, and I leave. No responses to email, either. I went onto the local mob forum board and posted about how flaky craigslist people are, even the sellers, and told me a story about the brakes. I just told you.
The seller saw that post and replied, apologized, and delivered the brakes. That’s the first time I ever met the guy.
A year or two goes by, and the same guy I got the brakes from posts on the forum board that he purchased the entire Cat Mtn property…!!!!! I’m shocked! I messaged him and told him the background of Cat mtn. and that we used to ride there. I explained I was part if FR512 and would love to bring the place back to life. And to keep the rest short and sweet, he gave me the keys to the kingdom, and here we are today. The free ride 512 club started to resurrect the place as a group effort. Ultimately it became mainly my thing, and I have been digging and running the trail system for close to 5 years now.
Its meant to be a very advanced trail system, not beginner-friendly. I take advantage of the super steep, rocky, and raw terrain there. My opportunity to build advanced wood features to build my favorite kind of trails I like to ride in places like New Mexico and Colorado. A trail that inspires a lot of my work is Upper Chillin’ double black at Angelfire Bike Park.
It will continue to create new lines there and keep pushing to keep it the raddest place in the state. Cat Mtn Invitational Enduro #2 is happening there Later this year.
Do you love your pup, don’t you? Does the pup run with you on the trails? — My boy Mack. Best trail dog ever :) he’s now almost 7, black lab & slight pitbull mix. He has been on the trails riding and building with me since he was four months old. He is getting into his more mature years now but is still super active; I’m just a lot more careful with the heat and running him on rides like we did when he was younger. He loves to hang out while we dig and lay in the cool dirt as we dig it up.
Is there anything you want to add or shout out on this piece, Seth? — Thank you, everyone, who has supported me and my efforts within Texas trail building and race promotion. Or just being riding buddies or a friend, thank you, everyone, who has come out to help dig. Your donations to trail building, racing my events and Promoting Victory Racing.
The biggest shout out to the most help of trail building, being my long time bike trip homies, my all-around right-hand bros, and the biggest supporters have been Alan Paryzek and Jason Kennedy. Yall have been there for me the longest and have been such huge help, and I could’ve have done it all without yall! Everyone else yall know who yall are!
Thanks again, and stay tuned for more from Seth Buckner and Victory Racing.

2020.08.29 15:33 s810 Old Austin Tales: Stories From Old Brodie Lane - 1880s-1950s

There are no photos of the events I'm sharing with y'all today so put on your tl;dr goggles, it's time for a text post. Not a very long one today. Just a few stories from Old Brodie Lane.
Let me start out by saying I was born a North Austin person. I've lived in places all over town but only one on the Southwest side. That was back in the late 90s, in an apartment complex still today named after a salad dressing. You'd think they would have changed it in the last 23 years. I've talked about the experience here before. I didn't enjoy living there. I used to try to bike down Brodie in a time when the modern trail system along Mopac was just a faraway dream (South Mopac itself wasn't finished when I left). But anyway back then there were still pretty large swaths of farmland in that area along streets like Brodie and Davis Lane, waiting to be subdivided to become the growth of today.
I moved out of there after a year long lease back to my native Northside, but by the year 2000 it was all apartment complexes and HEBs and Home Depots and Targets and such down there, like death spores from the old West Gate Mall had been released in the wind and traveled southwest to spawn big box children over a wider area.
I wanted some more historical context to see how this strange area of Travis County full of caves and huge oak trees between Oak Hill and Austin became such a modern jumble of apartments and neighborhoods and giant commercial developments. What farms were those I saw in the 1990s? Who are streets like Brodie and Davis named after? Today with the help of The Statesman archive and a few other sources I hope to share with you a bit of what I found out.
I, among others, have discussed the small town of Sunset Valley here in the sub before. You may have gotten a speeding ticket there, the place exists in its current form as a giant speed trap. However, the place was founded in the 1950s by people living in a few of the older neighborhoods and farms around there who were trying to head off annexation by The City of Austin. It turns out some of them were descended from an even more stubborn and NIMBY-like stock of people who lived in the same area. They didn't want roads. Even when they got roads that connected with the City and the surrounding communities they didn't want them to be improved so traffic wouldn't come. Having relatives in County Government helps decide where the roads go. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
The Brodie Family was from Arkansas. They were a very large family. The patriarch was named James Brodie. You can see he had at least seven children of his own, and then he had nine siblings who also had lots of children. It's confusing without getting deep into genealogy sites, but some of these siblings and cousins came to live on the same property in Travis County.

August 7, 1883 - James Brodie Purchases Zivley Farm

Property of J.W. Hanning. Price paid, $8500. Zhapelman and Bergen made the sale.

August 17, 1883 - James Brodie Farm Sale

432 acres, highly improved,... a most desirable property

November 22, 1893 - The Horse Went Home

And the Question Now is Who Was in the Buggy House?
On last Friday night a son of Mr. Brodie who lives five miles out on the Fredericksburg road took his sister to an entertainment which was given in the neighborhood. When he drove home he passed a short distance from the house a gray horse hitched to a buggy and tied by the roadside but no one was anywhere in sight. After getting home and when in the act of putting up his own horse he heard someone moving around in the buggy house. He called several times to know who was inside and finally a man came out and said he lived there. On young Brodie's intimating that he lied the stranger broke and ran and as he did so he dropped several old sacks in one of which was found a buggy robe. The elder Brodie was aroused and he at once went up me road to watch the gray horse. No one came for it and on Saturday morning he brought it to town and wanted to know of Sheriff White what to do with it. Mr. White told him to turn it loose and follow it home. Mr. Brodie then took the old gray down to the foot of the (Congress) Avenue and turned him loose. He at once struck out for East Austin and never stopped until he reached the house of old Bill Reeves, where he was given a most cordial reception. In answer to Mr. Brodie's questions old man Reeves said that his horse and buggy had been stolen on Friday night on Sunday he went out to Mr. Brodie's and claimed the buggy. The Reeves tribe are hard stock, different members of the family having been tried for all kinds of stealing. Two of old man Reeves nephews and one of his sons are now serving terms in the penitentiary for theft.
James Brodie's kids grew up in Travis County at the turn of the 20th century in the same area where Brodie Lane still is today. Yet if you look on old maps like this one from the 1890s it's really hard to make heads or tales of the roads in the area. As the Brodie kids became adults, the girls got married, some to out-of-towners and moved away, some to local boys. One of the sons got divorced early in 1899, a very rare thing back then. Another son sold wood. The boys in the Brodie family who didn't stay behind on the family farm went to school and mostly got government jobs. In 1910 one son is listed as running a family dairy business, and by 1920 another son had a seat on the Travis County Commissioner's court.

September 23, 1910 Tuesday Evening Party

Tuesday evening a merry and beautiful party was given in honor of Miss Bonlta Zimmerman, who leaves next week to take charge of a school at Merrilltown. The scene of hospitality was the home of Mrs. James Brodie, on the south side, and a delightful occasion It proved to the charming honoree and her friends. The evening was passed with music, among the selections being several piano solos by Miss Zimmerman, and selections on the violin by Mr. Schwartz, interspersed with songs and instrumental pieces on the gramophone. Delicious refreshments were served in the prettily decorate dining room, which was in a color scheme of white and green, class colors of the guest of honor. Those present to bid her good-bye were Messrs. and Mesdames Charles Pace, C. H. Talley of Italy, Texas; Will Schwartz. J. C. Brodie, Will Scantlan. J. H. Langsford. Edgar Williamson, Misses Mary and Celia Pace, Gertrude... (names unreadable)

December 18, 1920 - Brodie Speaks of Road Work Going Forward in Travis County:

Important Short Cut About Complete
Permanent Strip On Fredericksburg Highway. . .H. E. Brodie, newly elected county commissioner from Precinct No. 3, stated Saturday morning, upon being asked concerning the matter; that the county road working outfit has just about completed the grading and graveling of a strip of road in his precinct near St. Elmo. This gravel will be carefully and compactly rolled before the workmen leave the place. The strip of road referred to is a short one, stated Commissioner Brodie, but is an essential connecting link between the Post and the Brackenridge roads and one traveled by many citizens in that community. Commissioner Brodie spoke of some other work that is going forward in that precinct on what is known as the Austin-Fredericksburg highway. It seems the road out as far as the end of the Davis lane, going west, is in fairly good condition, and the two and one-half miles now being- constructed from the end of that lane to Oak Hill will be permanent work, and Uvalde asphalt is being used. It is ten or eleven miles from Oak Hill to the Hays county line, whereas it was originally Intended that the Austin-Fredericksburg road being built from this city to the Hays county line, through an edge of that county, through Blanco county and a portion or Gillespie county to Fredericksburg, the county seat, j It has been stated that all counties concerned in the building of this high way west from Austin have voted bonds except Travis. The two and one-half miles of good road now being completed was financed by Travis county with warrants, stated Mr. Brodie, together with aid from the Texas High way department.
The patriarch of the family died in 1921. There were still plenty of Brodies around.
In 1925 the area around Brodie Lane was popular with young people from Austin looking for a place to make out. Along comes a mystery man with a shotgun.

June 8, 1925 - Gun Man Invades Spooners' Paradise

Chases Petting Parties Away
Investigation of the reported hold up of a young couple in an automobile in Brodie Lane, about 5 miles south of the city of the Oak Hill Road, was started Monday by the sheriff's department, it was announced by Chief Deputy Sheriff John B. DuPriest. The sheriff's department admitted it had no knowledge of the affair until a news story was published Monday. The reported hold up was said to take place last Friday night.
According to the story told an Austin Statesman reporter by a man who said he witnessed the occurrence, a Hudson five-passenger speedster drove up to a car parked along the roadside along the Oak Hill road which was occupied by a young couple. The man in the Hudson, occupied with a shotgun in one hand and a flashlight in the other, is said to have walked up to the car and was surprised when the young man recognized him.
"I heard there was a man beating a woman up and I came out here to investigate," the alleged gunman, dressed in overalls, is said to have replied to the young man who asked what he was doing there at that time of night.
The alleged gunman then demanded to know if there were any other cars parked along the roadside, and when told in the affirmative, the man is alleged to have proceeded southward. There were eight occupants in the car, according to the story told the Austin Statesman reporter, who made a brief investigation of the affair Monday morning.
About 30 minutes later a Buick car with a Lockhart license number drove by going toward Austin," the Statesman's informant said. "This car was occupied by a young couple who appeared to be rather excited." According to the story told the Austin police department by the young man in the Lockhart car, he and his girl were parked along the roadside on the Oak Hill road five son automobile drove up behind them. A man dressed in overalls got out and pulled his gun and told them he held a commission from the Austin Humane society to arrest them. He is alleged to have told the young couple that he was tired of seeing young couples along the roadway "necking" and other things they should not do. The young woman is said to live in Austin.
Something might have happened between the Davis family and the Brodie family. The following happened in 1926:

August 31, 1926 - Davis Lane - Commissioners Settle Road Dispute

Charging $3000 of Travis County money had been expended by Commissioner W. E. Williamson in building a "private road," a delegation of citizens of precinct No. 3 Monday afternoon were denied a petition asking that the alleged money spent be returned to the road and bridge fund. Travis County commissioners refused the petition on the ground that only $750 had been expended and on a "legally authorized road." The committee charged that the road, known as the "Davis Lane" had been built out of county money for a private citizen and had cost $S000. Both claims-were denied by the commissioners and the request that the $3000 to have been spent was refused. The appearance of the committee Monday afternoon was the culmination of a dispute which has been going on for some months. --H. E. Brodie. who opposed Commissioner W. E. Williamson in the first primary, charged the road is a private road. Williamson answered by alleging that Brodie's name was on the petition asking for the road.
The Davis family appears to have won that round. 12 years later another road issue was before another court:

October 4, 1935 - Court is Restrained in Road Opening

Travis County's Commissioners Court Friday was temporarily restrained in 126th district court from opening a second class road in Precinct 3, as result of an in junction petition filed by five Precinct 3 property owners. Dist. Judge W. F. Robertson set Oct. 12 as a date for hearing of the case on its merits. The commissioners court last July 17 voted to open the road from the Davis and Brodie lane to the George Baker tract between Oak Hill and Manchaca, because of "public necessity." But the petition filed by the complaining property owners asserts that no public necessity exists for the road, that the road opening was designed by Precinct 3 Commsr. John E. Shell on "solely for the purpose of dispensing political favors at the expanse of Travis county." Plaintiffs in the case are N. A. Dawson and wife. Mr. and Mrs. R.H. Henderson, and Mrs. B. B. Davis.
In the 1940s after World War II the Brodies' neighbors started to move away. Change was coming to the area and by 1954 along comes Sunset Valley to the north.

September 16, 1954 - Incorporation Comes Dear to New Town

Incorporation of Sunset Valley the newest town in Travis County-cost that area two road improvement projects which had been planned by the County Commissioners Court. County officials Wednesday called off bids slated for issuance next Monday following incorporation of the town along the Fredericksburg Highway. The incorporation barred expenditure of county funds in the area. County Engineer Ian Morgan said late Wednesday afternoon there was no choice but to cancel the two projects, which included widening and repaving two miles or Brodie Lane from the Fredericksburg Highway, new paving for another mile stretch of the road and paving a half mile of Sunset Trail. Morgan said the county will go ahead at a later date with the new paving on Brodie Lane which will be outside the limits of the new village. Morgan said the county is barred from doing any road work in side incorporated towns unless the towns pay for it.
So there you have a few tales from Old Brodie Lane. There are not a lot of biographical details in the Statesman archive and I'm sure a lot more on popular genealogy sites. I don't want to give away too much modern history but most of the Brodie family moved away from Austin or were buried back in Arkansas. Today what remains of the Brodie Family Farm is a wedding venue. However there were so many members of the Brodie family I wouldn't be surprised to learn there were at least a dozen or so members of the family left in town today.
That's all for this week. The only photo close to the area in the UNT archive is this one of the intersection of Brodie Lane and Oakdale Lane in 1958. No other Bonus Pics today I'm afraid. I am told I do too many posts about the suburbs so something downtown next week.

2020.08.10 20:38 Buck_Joffrey Wealth Formula Episode 224: Multifamily Macroeconomics in the Twilight Zone

Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/224-multifamily-macroeconomics-in-the-twilight-zone/
Buck: Welcome back to the show everyone. Today my guest on Wealth Formula Podcast, he's been on the show before. He's economist Ryan Davis. He actually joined us at one of our last Wealth Formula meetups. Of course, the last one we had was canceled but Ryan was at the one before that. He serves as a chief operating officer at Witten Advisors and provides fact-based research analysis and discussion to help clients like us formulate their apartment strategies and these insights and for investment decisions for multi-family development and buy/sell opportunities which as you can imagine we're all looking for some of this advice these days. Ryan has a PhD in economics from the University of Texas. Ryan, welcome back to Wealth Formula Podcast.
Ryan: Thank you. Glad to be back.
Buck: Yeah it's been like a pandemic ago when we last talked right? Listen, you know I want to kind of jump into the whole you know what the heck is going on, I mean the overall, if you would, you know kind of give me your overall assessment of the economy. I mean obviously we know these huge drops in GDP etc which were expected last quarter. How is this all affecting real estate asset prices especially you know apartments which is you know is our interest and something that you specialize in?
Ryan: Sure so yeah the great unknown is the pace of the recovery. So we had that big drop through April in terms of employment and then we got a bounce back in May and June and the hope was that it was going to be a V-shaped recovery. But then we saw virus cases ramp back up in the second half of June into the early part of July and the local economy started rolling back some of their openings and so with that, we've kind of stalled out recently. So we'll get the July numbers this Friday for overall payroll gains and that could I think the consensus is anywhere between one, one and a half million jobs it could be negative so who knows but it looks like the hope for a v-shaped recovery in the economy has kind of stalled out after the first two months of optimism. And so we think that going forward we won't see any the worst is behind us really and so we won't see you know the big losses that we experienced in March and early into April so kind of what we're calling for right now is for the national economy to continue to add jobs for the remainder of the year and then beginning next year a recovery should emerge and that would sustain demand for housing and ultimately apartments going forward. In the near term as far as multi-family goes we expect some pain through the end of this year and then into the early part of next year. In terms of pricing power, if we had to boil it down to one number it's rent growth so year over year effective rent growth we think that declines to eight percent rent cuts this year and into the early part of 2021. That varies considerably on a local market basis I think our worst-performing market is Metro New York City probably no surprise there but then also many of the other gateway markets such as Boston, LA, the Bay Area, etc. We expect rent declines to be lower than that eight percent across the board, however many of the inner west, Texas, southeastern market should outperform still see rent declines but not closer to five/six percent range at the depth and so we expect near-term pain but then as we get out into 2021 and afterward and the economy begins to add a lot of jobs we would expect rent growth to return to multi-family. And then what that means for pricing in terms of apartment assets for right now in the second quarter hardly any deals trade at hand so it's really tough to get a sense of where pricing is and with the deals that have traded though the cap rates have remained relatively stable which is a good sign. We've heard from some of our merchant builder clients where they had assets they had constructed and were going out to the market to sell in the early part of April they were saying 10 discounts in terms of the compared to pre corona levels but that has since come back in the last 45-60 days and maybe it's only one to two percent in terms of the haircut that they're seeing out there right now. And there's a just a ton of capital that wants to get back into multifamily at the same time there's hardly any distress out there right now so there's a lack of available to you know supply to buy and so everyone is just kind of in this standstill there's a big ass gap because buyers aren't willing to pay yesterday's prices for assets but sellers aren't willing to give any you know deep discounts right now and so it's kind of a standstill and we’ll see how all this plays out.
Buck: Yeah you know it's really interesting we're obviously you know through, you work with Western Wealth Capital, one of my partners and you know it's funny because we were kind of thinking well maybe there'll be some real buying opportunities but you know we've seen a little bit maybe just you know from buyers who are sellers who just are just wanting to get out while they're ahead maybe they made some money you know maybe they and at this point you know they're just thinking let's just cash out and maybe they're willing to take a little bit less but for the most part you know if you look across our own portfolio and it might be because it's largely again Texas and Arizona, etc that and maybe it's because it's mostly working-class B and you know high C class apartment but our portfolio you know the numbers are just as good as they've ever been in terms of you know occupancy in terms of even our we're still raising rents. And so when you look at that you're like well I mean how do you expect there to be any you know smoking deals out there if the sellers really aren't feeling any distress. So is there a difference you know when you look at something like a B and C class apartment scenario versus A right now or have you been able to break that down a little bit because I think the people I know who are in the A-class and new build are you know they're certainly feeling things a little bit more than we are.
Ryan: Yeah so what we've heard from some of our clients in terms of early on so may June in terms of rent collections class A's were actually from a nationwide perspective actually exceeded the class B and C product. Now we don't think that will continue going forward and the main reason is that new deliveries that are coming online they will compete with the existing top of the market product and so we think that it will be short-lived in terms of the top of the market outperformance and another part is due to just the nature of this downturn where low-wage sectors were hit extremely hard in April, got some bounce back in May and June but the leisure and hospitality sectors lower-paying positions those have been the most impacted so far. But going forward we don't think that this downturn would be any different than prior recessions in terms of the class A leading the way down in terms of jobs and occupancy and also rent growth or rent cuts in the near term. So class A’s will lead the market down but then as we get out into the later part of next year and into early 2022 then class A's would outperform the broader market. So yeah we think through the end of this year until early next that B's and C's will hold up relatively better but that's mainly a function of just the competition that it takes to get these new projects they will get leased up it's just a matter of the market-clearing price and so those have to compete those could be mostly with the top end of the spectrum and so we see big rent declines and concessions in the class A space going forward.
Buck: You know there's this thesis that's going around in the multi-family space and you know I've been sort of you know looking at it this way too for a while though I'm starting to you know feel like it's maybe not gonna happen is this idea that there's going to be a potentially before we really rebound and start heading up again that there’ll potentially be a you know big tsunami of defaults and things like that. Right now at least what I'm you know seeing and hearing about in terms of the lending markets and in terms of these properties, there really isn't much indication of that right now is there I mean what do you think?
Ryan: No at least not in the short term I mean again there's it goes back to my earlier comment there's been no distress really and so that is due mainly to the huge stimulus packages that have been passed those from a fiscal standpoint and a monetary standpoint which is it's crazy to think that GDP declined at an annualized rate by 32 however incomes soared and so that's all due to the stimulus that we saw and so that's helped prop up renters incomes and allow them to pay rent. Now going forward I think some of these the number of defaults I don't think there will be a tsunami, at least that's how we view it right now, ask me again in a week and it could change, but I think that the defaults will be very market specific and so those geographies that have been hit harder we'll see a larger number but many of the Texas markets, Phoenix, Denver, southeast high growth markets where you've got this short-term tailwind in terms of folks at the margin more and the trends that have been in place for years of folks moving from gateway markets into these inner markets will be kind of you know given a stairway shot really in the near term and so that would help to prop up multi-family fundamentals and so yeah if you're expecting a tsunami of defaults in any of those markets that I've mentioned again it kind of gets a little bit granular in terms of you know potentially Orlando might have some problems just with the amount of supply and then the you know low-wage in tourism industries being impacted more dramatically and that would lead to some weakness in Orlando but out outside of that maybe Houston you could argue you know somewhat but outside of those two and those those areas of the inner west Texas, southeast Florida should be but hold up you know relatively well and I would think that the main stress points will be out you know on the coast in California potentially portland we do think seattle holds up relatively well and then northeast in terms of you know New York and Boston as well so I think it's very locally market driven.
Buck: Yeah it's interesting you know we did we were a little worried about Houston too but our you know Houston portfolio is actually doing awesome it's not having any problems at all which is which was you know again, knock on wood that’s what it's been so far. Let me ask you another question you mentioned the pent-up demand of you know money on the sidelines waiting to get back in and you know and in many situations, they have to get back in right they're mandated to deploy capital and that sort of thing do you the one thought that I've had through this is you know multi-family and well multi-family in general has held up so well during this period of time does that potentially create a situation where you know the big money that's coming in starts looking at this even harder as potentially a little bit of a hedge or a little bit of safe haven. What what do you guys think is going to be the effect of that you know the relatively stable performance and then ultimately you know having all of this money on the sidelines,? Do you see paradoxical even further compression of cap rates over the next couple years? What's your thought on that?
Ryan: Yeah and so kind of pre-corona our forecast was for cap rates to continue to decline and you know taking a step back it was mainly driven by global factors with the aging populations across the globe that have built wealth up and all that investment needed to be placed somewhere. And so those trends were driving returns lower for longer and so those are the demographic that have not been affected by the pandemic. And so just from a global standpoint, we're expecting returns across all assets whether stocks bonds you know all classes of real estate whether it's multi or industrial retail office, etc those returns would continue to head lower. Now we've had the pandemic and we've seen multi-family and industrial hold up exceedingly well and who knows what to make of retail office and lodging just lots of pain and in those sectors and so if you need to be allocated to real estate then multifamily and industrial or where you want to be at least in the short term and especially if you're looking for consistency of returns and you know risk-adjusted on a risk-adjusted basis you know multi-industrial or have outperformed other asset classes and so really to get into the lodging office retail space probably more opportunistic mindset in terms of those assets may need to be repositioned etc and so I think a lot of that money that's out there is not looking to get there's a lot that's looking for that type of asset turnaround story but there's also a lot of money out there that needs the stability. And so that should continue to compress cap rates or put a really put a cap on that cap rates and so it would be no surprise if cap rates on an aggregate basis hold steady and maybe even decline despite a deterioration in short-term fundamentals and part of that is due to the long-term belief in apartments going forward and so yes there's a short-term dislocation where we expect some move-outs that you know this year actually there are a lot of move-outs that we expect and so there's going to be a lot of doubling up folks moving back in with their families but then there's going to be pent up demand as we as that recovery takes hold next year and that will be released and so we see leasing to be through the roof next year and then out into 2022. Then at the same time as that demand story improves in the short term we see starts decelerating dramatically so we've we're going from a 400,000 unit run rate to about 200,000 units by the early part of next year. And so new production is going to get cut in half now that we don't get any benefit of that immediately so we have to wait till later part of 2022 and 2023 before we see that slowdown and production really lift fundamentals and so I think everyone is seeing that yes there's some short-term disruption in the multi-family market right now, but the long-term drivers are there and if you have the capital to wait out this very painful period in the short term then there will be major benefits after that we should see after next year.
Buck: Now one of the things you said I think earlier is that the worst is behind us do you believe that's the case in terms of rent growth and you know rent cuts and that sort of thing right now?
Ryan: I think the worst is behind us in terms of the economy. I think that going forward we should continue to produce job gains on a monthly basis, though this next report could see some layoffs we'll see the consensus is one million one and a half. In terms of multi-family we do not think the worst is behind us we think that fundamentals will continue to deteriorate into the early part of next year we think that you know kind of right now in terms of year over year rent growth in the early part of this year let's call it three, three and a half percent we've since gone down to zero percent in the second quarter. So on a quarterly basis we've seen some dramatic rent cuts, again this is on a national basis and then as we move forward we see occupancy dropping by about three percentage points into the early part of next year, rent declines of about eight percent through the remainder of this year into the first quarter of next year and so no we do think that there will be some deterioration and fundamentals going forward. On the flip side of that might present some opportunities and so any assets that were purchased specially in your space in terms of if they were bought at the top of the market at the end of last year in the early part of this year and now that value-add story isn't there where you might not be able to get the rent bumps that you were expecting so some of those assets will have to be recapitalized and so that might present some opportunity as the year progresses but again like you said we haven't seen that materialized so far.
Buck: Yeah that's the tricky part right I mean it's sort of like I think when you're on the buy side here you're saying well I mean these prices that we're seeing right now you know with prolonged you know low-interest rates which we can pretty much guarantee at this point for a period of time and then the pent-up demand. It's sort of like okay well I mean this actually might be one of the better times to buy if you consider what could potentially happen in the next you know 18 to 24 months in terms of you know explosive growth. When you look at those indicators that you're you know that you're talking about that may lead to some of the more explosive growth metrics what markets come to mind the most for you?
Buck: Now one of the things you said I think earlier is that the worst is behind us do you believe that's the case in terms of rent growth and you know rent cuts and that sort of thing right now?
Ryan: Yeah so our general geographic areas that we like we like the southeast, parts of Florida, Texas and the inner west. We really like Atlanta, we like South Florida though there's a little more pain in the short term some of our clients are saying it kind of in terms of you know rent collections you know northeast but also yeah LA but then South Florida is outperforming those two areas but still lagging some of these other markets. So we like the Texas markets long term the interwebs you have Phoenix, Denver, Salt Lake as well. We like Seattle that's an outlier on the west coast but then the other markets whereas in the Bay Area we expect those you know rent growth numbers to average four, four and a half percent which stack up really well across the nation but for those markets that's a recession pretty much and so compared to what's normal and the cap rates you have to pay the rent growth numbers there kind of you know lackluster. So the midwest the markets they won't be hit as hard but still they don't get that explosive growth going forward and so we really like the inner West Texas, southeast of Florida markets and you know part of that has been driven being driven by the migration flows. So domestic migration numbers have really helped out all of these markets we've seen outflows from the northeast boston new york the bay area Southern California we've seen migration outflows from those markets into the you know inner west you know Las Vegas the inland Phoenix, Denver you know people moving from the coast into those markets and then you know also parts of texas as well but then in terms of the northeast the flows that are coming in to the Nashvilles the Charlottes, Raleighs, Atlanta, Florida markets we and then also Texas as well and so those trends have been accelerated at least in the short term, but it's important to remember that those have been going on for a decade at least even more and then other markets and so it's not anything new but at the margin that will support many of these other markets.
Buck: Yeah on the west coast I mean there's that flight to Arizona as well right from California. One of the things that you know is worth talking about is what effect this has had you know the pandemic and the recession on the lending market, with Fannie and Freddie and you know how that might be playing into any of the growth or lack of growth.
Ryan: Yeah I think on the financing side you know debt for stabilized assets it's there and it's cheap you may have to you know have higher reserves than you've had typically but for the most part it's there and so that's part of the appeal of buying assets right now with these record low interest rates. So I think for stabilized assets yeah it's there for new construction it is dried up considerably and this is a change in the last 30 to 60 days and so the fed does a survey each quarter of banks and their tightening of multi-family construction lending standards and that the latest report shows 70 percent of banks tighten their multi-family construction loans last quarter which we haven't seen those levels since 2008/2009. And so I think part of it's the lenders are trying to make sense of what they have in terms of all these other asset types in terms of real estate or retail, lodging, office loans, they're trying to you know spend a lot of time working those out and so then you add on the uncertainty in terms of the economic recovery etc, they've pretty much put a halt on new construction loans. And so that's been a big change here in the last two months call it. Then on the equity side I think returns have been increased but still available and interested but you know a lot of you know equity and especially focusing in on the new starts pipeline if all the deals that have been started are continuing and it's kind of a mixed bag from our clients in terms of are you seeing delays or actually some other clients that reported these they were able to speed up the timing in terms of getting able to get trucks into sites very easily and then also the construction workers that were on you know working on hotels motels those have come into the apartment sector and so that's provided more manpower in terms of getting these deals done. And so those that were under construction are continuing to proceed, those that were capitalized I think that but haven't begun those have been they haven't pulled out completely they just said let's press pause to see let's say can we get any break in construction costs over the next several months and so the equity and banks they're still willing to do it move forward on those deals that have been capitalized but are you know slow playing it. And then you get to the others where there's land sites and they hadn't been entitled and haven't been capitalized those deals we think have been shelved for right now and so it kind of where some opportunity could be is on the land side of you know potentially purchasing some land sites that might be teed up for development as we get further along in this recovery.
Buck: Again one of the things that you're saying though in terms of construction loans not being there again it helps us for those of us who have apartment portfolios already that are already there that that again goes to the issue of a simple supply and demand issue which we can benefit from if there's not a whole lot of new builds. You know this is a major driving variable in in apartment buildings nationally can you give us a little bit of the idea of you know just not being able to keep up with you know population growth in various parts of the country, can you give us a little bit of you know sort of a thousand-foot view on the perspective on how big of an issue that actually is?
Ryan: I don't know if it's that big of an issue you know on on the whole and I think that you know some of these higher growth markets in terms of where we've you know call it the Atlantas and North Carolina markets, Central North Florida, Texas, the inner west regions where we've seen large population growth statistics you know high growth markets but they're also they also tend to be the highest in terms of supply for housing and so it's more easy to build in those markets especially you know out as you get away from the know central cities etc and so where we've seen the the biggest barriers to supply are out on the coast and so we've seen you know job growth be pretty good in those markets but the supply hasn't kept up at all and so that's why you're seeing you know these big you know rent affordability you know problems in the coastal markets and so we think that supply not keeping up with the population dynamics is more of a coastal problem but then you know as you get into the markets that are more accepting of new development then you know we've seen housing supply increase at a rapid clip in many of these other markets I think you know Austin you know even through the June of this year permit activity for multi-family continued to set it reached big big levels and so I think year to date in Austin it's already pulled permits on almost 10,000 units already which is you know huge numbers. And so I do think that while these population growth numbers and some of these markets are you know off the charts especially compared to you know some of the coastal markets, that supply has been able to keep up there and so yeah you see pockets of where you know rent growth you know bumps up to you know five, six percent levels, it's especially that was the case in Phoenix and Las Vegas over the past two to three years where those markets were leading in terms of rent increases but they tend to you know be markets that you know will accept more new supply and so that will tend to even out over the long term.
Buck: How's Vegas doing out of curiosity because that one was just crushing it. It seemed it seemed a little dangerous you know it seemed like one of those markets where it's like wow is it real or is it one of those things that's just gonna go back to Vegas.
Ryan: Yeah exactly and yeah kind of thinking that you know before kind of goes back to your comment earlier about people moving from the coast to getting in their car and driving to the riverside and then Las Vegas and Phoenix and so it was benefiting from a real out-migration from expensive coastal California. That said that just the nature of this pandemic crushing leisure and hospitality and the conference circuit that the job losses in Las Vegas I think you know through April into May led the nation. We've seen some a bit of a bounce back there but really the question is you know how fast does the the conference you know a circuit come back, how fast are people willing to travel to casinos, I know they have already, but I think that pre-corona the growth was real and yeah absolutely now it's a little bit different you know market in terms of the cost and you don't want to go in there and if you're a developer you don't you know want to build a high-rise there and so your strategy is a little bit different but so far it's held up relatively well, all things considered, but still a lot of weakness that is materializing in Vegas.
Buck: Interesting stuff. Well listen I don't want to keep you all day long, Ryan, but it's been great talking to you. Where can we learn more about your work?
Ryan: Sure. Probably the easiest is wittenadvisors.com you can go there, all our contact information is there, feel free to reach out with a phone call or send me an email anytime and I'll be happy to give you more details on the services that we provide and how we add value to many clients that are in either owner, operators, developers, equity or lender clients.
Buck: Fantastic thanks again and we'd love to have you again you know in a few months to reassess where we are at.
Ryan: All right. Sounds good. Looking forward to it.
Buck: We'll be right back

2020.08.06 08:27 BB-Boleyn I’m BB Boleyn - the most famous rock star in the world - and I’ve got a creepy groupie - Part 2

Part 1
Stan - my deranged stalker - has been turning up at different places: A fan, a roadie, a check-in agent, a pilot ... it’s beyond weird.
Houston, Texas.
Janie, my publicist has a surprise for me. After tonight’s show my boyfriend is coming to stay with me for the night: Brandon St John - professional wrestler.
It was what they call a “Showmance”. I’d met Paul, or Brandon as he was known to fans only 6-7 times. Janie’s sister was a wrestling promoter and put us in touch. Janie guessed it’d be good for my image. We had a few dates but suddenly People magazine were calling us 2020’s most powerful Super Couple. What an accolade. Our six dates had already netted us millions as a couple. Despite this we were still attracted to each other and it seemed to be working - so far.
Brandon met me after the show. He’d just “won” the Royal Rumble and was enjoying the publicity. Turning up at my show only amplified that. The press were rife.
I left the stage after our encore and Brandon met me. We walked the long walk to the dressing room pursued by Press.
A strange older lady intercepted me en route, her eyes crazed and hair a mess: “do not look at the outsider journalist - i beg you!” And with that, she turned down a side corridor at the arena and vanished.
”Ms Boleyn - when are you and Mr St John making things official?!”
”Do you want a baby hon?!”
”Brandon how does it feel to be Royal Rumble Champion for 2020?”
Then there he was. Stan. In a long trenchcoat with a notebook like some old-timey reporter. Just like he was dressing up for the part.
“Betty honey, what message do you have for your number one fan?!”
I stopped walking, frozen in fear. The cameras flashed.
Where was Tony?
Nowhere to be seen.
This is where you step in Tony - you really are the worst bodyguard...
Stan stopped abruptly, halting the crowd of journalists behind him. He shuffled two steps closer and inches from my face he said softly: “ 2nd Chance to say yes to me. You don’t want to regret this, honey!”
Brandon wasn’t even fighting my corner! He stood, staring deadpan into the middle distance.
“Have a look at my notes!” Stan whispered excitedly, pushing forward his notebook with a maniacal grin on his face. Then he fled.
Lightbulbs flashing all around, I reluctantly thumb through the notebook.
It’s not a scrapbook of images like last night. In some ways it’s more weird. It’s a transcript - a detailed and frighteningly accurate word for word account of everything I have said today since I woke up this morning.
The strange older lady appears again behind the journalists - shaking her head in frustration.
Paul - “Brandon” and I returned to the penthouse and within seconds he was shirtless. I’d been looking forward to this for weeks.
I fixed us a double scotch.
There was an urgent knock at the door.
Brandon rolled his eyes and went to see who it was.
Stan stooped in at speed wearing a suit and carrying a gun marching straight to the bedroom door - Almost as if he already knew the layout of the room.
“Tony asked me to keep watch tonight” he announced and took a seat by the bedroom door. Just pretend I’m not here”.
“No! Get out you creepy shit - I’m not having you sit outside the bedroom as we’re ....”
“It’s cool, babe” says Brandon. “He’s just keeping us safe”
What kind of man is ok with this?!
“No, this is the crazy stalker I told you about ... it’s not ok!! I want him out”.
Text from Janie: “Have a good rest - will get you at 12:00 tomorrow”.
I frantically text back: “he’s here in the room - get Tony quickly!”
A red ! appears - the message fails to send.
I look at Brandon, exasperated. I can’t believe he doesn’t care about Stan being here. It’s the first alone time we’ve had in months.
“Babe honestly it’s fine just pretend he isn’t here”. Still not comfortable with it I visit the bathroom and freshen up. When I return, Stan and Brandon/Paul have switched places.
Stan is in bed, naked and Brandon is sitting guard looking comotose. No reaction, no blinking. Is he even breathing?! He looks dead to the world. I rush over to check on him.
Stan smiles at me, leaps out of bed and lunges at me again with that filthy grey cloth. He smothers my face. The room spins and i pass out.
”Wake up call for Ms Boleyn”
I bolt upright. Sunlight ploughs through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the penthouse. I look around. I’m alone. No Stan and no Brandon. Not even a trace of them either. Weird.
My phone has died. I have no idea what time it is but I know I need to be up and ready by 12:00. I turn on the TV.
Hollywood airhead gossip columnist Carli Carlsson is on screen, busting at the seams to release whatever inside scoop she has. In front of a huge crowd she swings round to face the camera:
”Guys, I’m in Houston, Texas and it’s with a heavy heart I report to you today that Paul D Austin, known to fans as WWE Superstar Brandon St John has died aged 37 at the Metropole Hotel, downtown Houston. Consuela Gonzalez, a housekeeper at the hotel found the sports star hanging in his room at 7:30am this morning. A note left close by blamed his girlfriend, the British rock star BB Boleyn as the reason behind his suicide. This is Carli Carlsson, for Inside Scoop, TMZ!”
Before I could even digest this news, Tim, Tony and Janie burst into my room, dressing me and pouring me into an outside car.
Phoenix, Arizona.
“Sullivan Saxe” said Janie my publicist. “He’s the CEO of the hottest new social media site”.
“Janie, he is 24! 10 years younger than me!”
“It would be so HOT!” She insisted.
“Janie, my boyfriend’s dead - why don’t you care?!”.
She shrugged it off as if we’d simply broken up. Not that he had killed himself blaming me.
“It wasn’t a real relationship you know that”.
“I don’t buy his suicide note either - look you know Stan was in the room ...”
“No more details have been released! You just need to get over it!” She snapped.
“Look, I’m not ready for a new relationship, ok? I need to process what’s happened. This has really shocked me, Janie!”
She didn’t care. Narrowing her eyes, pursing her lips and peering into the distance she tapped her chin, deep in thought.
“Hmmm, come to think of it you do sell more music when you’re single” she mused.
My phone pinged.
“We need to get ready for tonight”.
An unknown number. I knew exactly who it was - and I dreaded tonight’s show.
Janie left me alone in my dressing room an hour before the show. She never leaves me alone.
My new make-up artist entered. She smelt bad.
She looked .... odd.
She looked at me in the mirror.
“Hello Honey! I’m thinking a classic Vintage Hollywood look tonight - red lips, strong eyebrows? Dramatic hair ...”
She looked so familiar.
She made up my face beautifully. My hair however was a different story.
Leaning down slowly behind me to my right shoulder and looking at me in the mirror, she put a hand to her face and slowly pulled off a prosthetic mask revealing herself to be Stan, grinning at me like the cat that got the cream. I gasped but before I could move he aggressively slapped handcuffs on my right wrist locking me to the bar under the chair arm - then matched it again with a new pair on my left wrist. Smiling and sniggering like a lunatic looking at me in the mirror he slowly began to shave my head. My thick, lucious, platinum blonde locks dropped pathetically to the floor as he transformed my long Barbie doll hair into a short, shaved crop. I squirmed and ducked in the chair desperately trying to escape the clippers.
Pain filled my nose and throat as i started to cry. My beautiful long hair. All the things that made me famous he was taking away from me - first my musical knowledge, my breast implants, my A List boyfriend and now my hair.
He finished the shave with a proud “ta-da!”
Gone was the sexy alter ego I spent years creating. I looked as deranged as Stan.
“If I can’t have you, nobody else can” he declared with a cocky and arrogant smirk.
“And now?!” He sang, smiling at me in the mirror. Then spun my chair round to face him: “IT’S SHOWTIME!”
There was no extra time. The opening act had been done for 35 minutes.
Opening the dressing room door, he sprinted at breakneck speed through the backstage corridors pushing me in the chair, manically laughing over and over. Whooping and cheering and sneering at me.
Arriving at the stage and with great speed - so much so I couldn’t process what was happening - he released the handcuffs, yanked me up by the back of my shirt, swung my Guitar across my shoulder and shoved me forwards towards the thousands of waiting fans.
I staggered onstage to fastly decreasing applause.
Bald.

2020.07.20 18:44 Colemanton Suspended License

I am a Texas resident and I was in an accident in Florida last spring, for which I was given a citation for reckless driving. While paying the ticket I selected the option to take the defensive driving course. I had taken the course within the last year so assumed that it would not ultimately keep points from being assessed, so I never took the course (bonehead move, I know. I am now aware that the year-count starts from the date that you elect to take the course, not the date you actually complete it).
Because of this, an extra $41 was assessed which I was never notified of, and upon receiving in the mail a notice that I had not satisfied the requirements of my citation I tracked down my payment receipt and just mailed that to the office in Florida (I know, bonehead move NO. 2, I should have taken the time to bring up my citation on the OC website to see if I had missed anything). Having never received any followup notices in the mail I assumed the matter resolved.
Fast forward to early June, and my friend gets arrested driving through Oklahoma after being pulled over for speeding. Turns out his license had been suspended for four years and he never even knew. This prompts me to check my status. Long story short it has been suspended since october of last year.
I check my citation on the florida website and get in touch with the collections agency they have sent it to and pay the 41 stinking dollars (FOR ELECTING TO DO SOMETHING THAT ISNT REQUIRED, AND DOESNT EVEN REDUCE THE CITATION FEE FOR CHRISTS SAKE). Anyway, they send the confirmation to Florida who in turn send me my confirmation necessary to get the non-resident suspension lifted. I overnight it to the office in Austin and according to the USPS tracker it was confirmed delivered on thursday, June 25th. I also paid the reinstatement fee on the DPS website.
Now, according to the DPS website, it can take up to 21 days for them to process the documents upon receipt. Ill allow that while they may have received the notice on the 25th, it may not have actually been collected until the next morning (Friday, June 26th)? Regardless, it has now been either 22 or 23 days since the office in Austin should have received my notice.
I have scheduled an appointment with the DPS in Austin but its not until December 22nd. Please... if anyone has any insight into what may be going on I would really appreciate some assistance. Thanks.
Currently on hold with my local DPS office (Galveston, going into hour 2) since every time I call the one in Austin I get an AM saying phone lines are too busy and they hang up on me
Edit: Only just now seeing the DPS website specifies 21 BUSINESS days, so I guess it has only been 17/18 business days. I guess I will wait another few days before I really start panicking then.

2020.06.09 04:40 MilkshakeIsNice The Mute

Four and a half billion years ago, life began on the planet of Earth, and with it came the infinity of potential futures for it’s universe. The first forms were microscopic, only a few trillion atoms in size. They were as simplistic as it could get. They had the ability to consume for energy and reproduce; that was all that was needed. As time went on, life began to become more advanced, larger, (and most importantly) more intelligent. This life would be capable of surpassing the universe’s own perils. Perils some would refer to as cogs in the machine of “The Great Barrier”. Despite the mass extinctions that have threatened life time and time again on the planet, life continued on sooner or later. The grass became green, the birds grew wings to fly, and life started to become pristine and perfected with every passing millenia.
With this in mind, it is almost certain that the downfall began with the evolutionary trait of sentience, and eventually sapience. The evolving family tree in the Primates group eventually becoming known as homo sapiens, after constant evolution, now had too great of an intellectual potential for it and it’s home’s own good. At an exponential rate, they began switching the rules of life that had been going steady for billions of years. Rather than adapting to the environment, the environment came to need to adapt to them. The resources once abundant in every corner of the globe became perverted to suit the needs of the humans, as they would begin to call themselves. The species grew a carbon footprint that would never be able to dematerialize as they grew more knowledgeable, with the idea of higher powers in existence becoming obscured in favor that they were the peak lifeform.
Unbeknownst to all living things however, there was one creature watching, learning, and living vicariously throughout all of life, it too viewing sapience as the greatest gift imaginable. This creature lived solely outside the ever expanding edge of the universe, meaning as the universe grew larger with each passing second, it grew. This entity would never possibly on its own be able to reveal itself to any living thing in the universe, nor could it ever want to, for the mind of this being was a database containing all knowledge of everything that has ever lived. As nobody knew of this being, it too didn’t know of itself. This being, watching silently throughout the eons, is the mute; a higher power of unknown size, origin, and capability.
With a being of such inconceivable size, it is nothing less than ironic that the universe’s demise started with humankind’s discovery of items inconceivably small. This would mean the extermination of life in the universe would originate in the 1940s, with the discovery of virtual particles in the field of quantum mechanics, and roughly a decade and a half later with the discovery of neutrinos - subatomic particles so small they can pass through solid matter.
Despite the obvious nuclear threat that had been prominent in the world throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, it is almost undebatable that humankind had progressed farther in these 50 years than ever before. They took advantage of light’s near instantaneous traveling properties to make the internet. They would utilize semiconductors to create computers accessible to billions on the planet in compact sizes, but by far the most awe inspiring achievement accomplished was the demonstration of spatial travel. This event proved to humanity, and the mute, that life didn’t have to be confined to a planet that they were slowly but surely killing as they progressed onwards.
Throughout this span of time, humanity’s consequences were beginning to show on a celestial scale. A hole in the ozone layer of the planet’s atmosphere was discovered to be from human use of products being released to the air. Miniature continents of trash began forming in the once beautiful blue oceans, filled with toxicity that would take a millenia to degrade. Millions of acres were defaced, animal habitats were wiped clean off the map, and the degrading situation of Earth would mean the children of those who caused it would be doomed to attempt to face the consequences of their ascendants. They had successfully created slums in heaven, and branded mother nature as a slave, a mistake that a no miracle, however great, could fix.
Perhaps that's what the Gidim research team had been hoping to find when they announced operation Galaga back in 2032. Using virtual particle manipulation and photon manipulation, and a large amount of hydrogen, a group of astrophysicists in Houston, Texas, led by Austin Gidim, had created a machine known as the neutrino catapult, capable of launching particles faster than light. This launched particle, referred to as a Gidim particle, had managed a speed equivalent to the speed of light to the power of the speed of light (roughly 300,000 kilometers a second ^ 300,000 kilometers a second). Due to its original nature of a virtual particle, the first proven tests with these only lasted a few seconds before dissipating from existence, but the team had confidence that they would be able to manipulate these particle’s existence time to a few hours, being more than enough time to escape the known boundaries of the universe. This discovery was at first kept top secret, due to the potential unknown effects of these particles and what could arise from being shot at such a speed. For the first week of its discovery, only eleven humans knew of this discovery, and one unfathomable being outside of the universe.
Once the consequences were found to be insignificant at most, (slight radiation release here and there, as expected), the discovery was made public. The public announcement of the discovery was juxtaposed with the announcement of using the catapult to see outside the universe in the same speech.
It was Sunday, August 22nd, 2032 when Austin Gidim made the speech which had everyone wondering, waiting for what was inevitably going to be the most significant discovery of their reality. The mute, joining them in their excitement, not knowing of itself.
“Since our first trip to the moon in 1969, the world’s greatest and most revered scientists and thinkers have been seeing space as the final frontier; the ultimate goal for an inevitable utopia of this species to be present, with each person their own galaxy. And now, we have before ourselves, the possibility to go the extra mile. With this new faster than light catapult, we are planning for its use to see what lies outside the very boundaries that make up the universe as a whole.”
It was official. Mankind now had the technology and the intentions to know what was beyond the universe. Excitement was thriving in humanity, and none was more excited than the mute. The date for the launch was set to be a week after the speech, which was plenty of time for the team to work. Within these days, theories on what lies ahead were booming. Perhaps they had discovered the secret to exploring parallel universes. Maybe they would uncover an ethereal realm of some sort. Maybe they would find nothing at all. Whatever people believed, they waited patiently for answers. As for the team on the project, they had work to do. It felt like just another week in the office, even though everyone on the project knew it was much more. By the fifth day, they had their game plan set up.
The particles launched would emit heat, which would emit extremely high frequencies that traveled at the same speed. The frequencies would bounce off anything they successfully managed to collide with, and would return to computers on Earth with models showing its surroundings. Due to the particle’s extreme speed, there was an estimated 1e-6423 chance that a particle launched would collide with anything. It was obvious as well they would be launching multiple particles, in case one part of the border of the universe somehow happened to differ from another. By Saturday, there were half a thousand particles ready to be launched through the edge of the universe.
That Sunday, seemingly everyone with a television or internet tuned in to watch the broadcasted experiment as it happened. The scientists on the Gidim team were excited not only at the fact they were about to see what was beyond the universe, but also from the inevitable fame that would soon follow.
“It is with great pride we hold today that we are living in what will undoubtedly become one of Humanity’s greatest milestones and achievements in history. When this speech is over, we will launch roughly five hundred particles throughout various directions we have access to, and in an estimated three hours later we will have results on what is outside our universe.” Austin spent several more minutes thanking his friends and family, as well as old teachers, to help him get to the position he was currently in. With eager excitement, he launched the particles.
In a fraction of an attosecond, the particles passed mars, jupiter, pluto and neighboring solar systems. They warped through galaxies, then galactic clusters racing to their absolute limit. People spectating the events were cheering, whether it be at home or at work.
90 minutes had now passed since the launch, when everyone in the team unexpectedly felt an incredibly sharp jolt of pain surge through their bodies. Another 90 minutes passed, and then the results came in. It was a scientist by the name of Adam Porter that first noticed what had happened.
The particles’ frequencies had returned to Earth. This was expected.
The surroundings of the frequencies ricochet patterns had returned to computer simulations. This was expected.
The pattern of the frequencies proved that the particles had ricochet off of other objects, and flew past Earth. This is when the science team grew anxious.
The chance of one particle hitting anything at all was virtually nothing, nevermind all of them. Even if a particle did somehow manage to collide with something, the result would be estimated to be a supermassive blackhole the size of several large galactic clusters, which would wipe the other particles from existence, which they didn’t.
Confused and nervous, a scientist was ordered to load up the model the frequencies had produced. It took 5 minutes to load. The first thing they noticed was a large wall near the edge of the screen. Austin was the one to realize quickly that this wall wasn’t a glitch or a limitation of the technology; this was what the particle had collided with.
This mass couldn’t have been matter still being put out in the universe from the big bang fourteen billion years ago. Even with such high density, the particles still would have an impossibly low chance of colliding, and as previously mentioned, black holes of extreme sizes would immediately produce. There was something out there; something of such impossibly high density, something that ignored conventional laws of gravity and physics, something that was now hurt.
For the first time ever, the Mute had felt pain, and as it did, so did every living thing on Earth that was capable of. It wasn’t just physical pain the Mute had felt. The Mute, along with the scientists, were growing extremely nervous of what results had come up.
There was one person on the science team who had always had a more superstitious look on science as a whole; one Jonathan Tuckers. The team had been trying to debate each other, wondering what had just happened in the experiment. Jonathan was the first to try to link the jolt of pain they had collectively felt to the results they were seeing. Out loud, he proposed the idea of a living creature similar to that or identical to that of a God had been disturbed by what they had done.
As quick as he said it, the Mute became aware of itself. It looked through the eyes of all of humanity, to see the technology of the species that discovered it suddenly fail.
Structures like houses, offices, bridges, suddenly collapsed without any probable cause. The tires in speeding cars suddenly popped, causing them to violently crash, killing everyone inside. Aircraft suddenly stopped working, dooming everyone inside to die violent deaths.
This was frightening to say the least to the Mute, but what scared it even more were the unnatural, grotesque, almost cartoonish ways some people died. Some people running from the chaos ensuing around them tripped, breaking open their skulls like an egg, splattering their cerebrum across the ground. The density of water seemingly vanished, causing all those swimming in it to fall to their deaths as they hit the floor of the ocean or sea, their femurs impaling the sides of their torsos. People jumping out of aircraft in a desperate attempt of survival had their skin ripped off their body by the force of the wind blowing against them as they fell thousands of feet above ground, exposing the muscles while their human hides flew off of them like blankets.
Humanity, as rapidly as it had learned, was going extinct. The final charge in this unconventional end to the human race, was the failure of nuclear systems across the globe, frying the planet to a radiated crisp, swiftly ending life on Earth. At last, the universe was silent. With the death of all living things, the Mute put its previous knowledge together, to find out quickly what it was. It realized that this would mean it would never learn anything new ever again. But forever, it would always be haunted with a lingering fear. Was there something more powerful than itself? Were there other entities like itself? Surely this composure of everything couldn’t be so nihilistic in nature. With the death of life, the Mute realized that it would never learn why humanity died, and why it died in such a grotesque, unconventional manner.
Or perhaps it was for the best. Perhaps it was a lesson for what happens when life goes too far, and uncovers what isn’t meant to be known. If there were other Universes, however they may be separated from each other, then was humanity simply a special brand of life? The Mute, was forever now to permanently not know an answer to these questions, and after seeing what had happened to humanity, perhaps it was for the best.

The scientists on the Gidim team were excited not only at the fact they were about to see what was beyond the universe, but also from the inevitable fame that would soon follow.
“It is with great pride we hold today that we are living in what will undoubtedly become one of Humanity’s greatest milestones and achievements in history. When this speech is over, we will launch roughly five hundred particles throughout various directions we have access to, and in an estimated three hours later we will have results on what is outside our universe.” Austin spent several more minutes thanking his friends and family, as well as old teachers, to help him get to the position he was currently in. With eager excitement, he launched the particles.
In a fraction of an attosecond, the particles passed mars, jupiter, pluto and neighboring solar systems. They warped through galaxies, then galactic clusters racing to their absolute limit. People spectating the events were cheering, whether it be at home or at work.
90 minutes had now passed since the launch, when everyone in the team unexpectedly felt an incredibly sharp jolt of pain surge through their bodies. Another 90 minutes passed, and then the results came in. It was a scientist by the name of Adam Porter that first noticed what had happened.
The particles’ frequencies had returned to Earth. This was expected.
The surroundings of the frequencies ricochet patterns had returned to computer simulations. This was expected.
The pattern of the frequencies proved that the particles had ricochet off of other objects, and flew past Earth. This is when the science team grew anxious.
The chance of one particle hitting anything at all was virtually nothing, nevermind all of them. Even if a particle did somehow manage to collide with something, the result would be estimated to be a supermassive blackhole the size of several large galactic clusters, which would wipe the other particles from existence, which they didn’t.
Confused and nervous, a scientist was ordered to load up the model the frequencies had produced. It took 5 minutes to load. The first thing they noticed was a large wall near the edge of the screen. Austin was the one to realize quickly that this wall wasn’t a glitch or a limitation of the technology; this was what the particle had collided with.
This mass couldn’t have been matter still being put out in the universe from the big bang fourteen billion years ago. Even with such high density, the particles still would have an impossibly low chance of colliding, and as previously mentioned, black holes of extreme sizes would immediately produce. There was something out there; something of such impossibly high density, something that ignored conventional laws of gravity and physics, something that was now hurt.
For the first time ever, the Mute had felt pain, and as it did, so did every living thing on Earth that was capable of. It wasn’t just physical pain the Mute had felt. The Mute, along with the scientists, were growing extremely nervous of what results had come up.
There was one person on the science team who had always had a more superstitious look on science as a whole; one Jonathan Tuckers. The team had been trying to debate each other, wondering what had just happened in the experiment. Jonathan was the first to try to link the jolt of pain they had collectively felt to the results they were seeing. Out loud, he proposed the idea of a living creature similar to that or identical to that of a God had been disturbed by what they had done.
As quick as he said it, the Mute became aware of itself. It looked through the eyes of all of humanity, to see the technology of the species that discovered it suddenly fail.
Structures like houses, offices, bridges, suddenly collapsed without any probable cause. The tires in speeding cars suddenly popped, causing them to violently crash, killing everyone inside. Aircraft suddenly stopped working, dooming everyone inside to die violent deaths.
This was frightening to say the least to the Mute, but what scared it even more were the unnatural, grotesque, almost cartoonish ways some people died. Some people running from the chaos ensuing around them tripped, breaking open their skulls like an egg, splattering their cerebrum across the ground. The density of water seemingly vanished, causing all those swimming in it to fall to their deaths as they hit the floor of the ocean or sea, their femurs impaling the sides of their torsos. People jumping out of aircraft in a desperate attempt of survival had their skin ripped off their body by the force of the wind blowing against them as they fell thousands of feet above ground, exposing the muscles while their human hides flew off of them like blankets.
Humanity, as rapidly as it had learned, was going extinct. The final charge in this unconventional end to the human race, was the failure of nuclear systems across the globe, frying the planet to a radiated crisp, swiftly ending life on Earth. At last, the universe was silent. With the death of all living things, the Mute put its previous knowledge together, to find out quickly what it was. It realized that this would mean it would never learn anything new ever again. But forever, it would always be haunted with a lingering fear. Was there something more powerful than itself? Were there other entities like itself? Surely this composure of everything couldn’t be so nihilistic in nature. With the death of life, the Mute realized that it would never learn why humanity died, and why it died in such a grotesque, unconventional manner.
Or perhaps it was for the best. Perhaps it was a lesson for what happens when life goes too far, and uncovers what isn’t meant to be known. If there were other Universes, however they may be separated from each other, then was humanity simply a special brand of life? The Mute, was forever now to permanently not know an answer to these questions, and after seeing what had happened to humanity, perhaps it was for the best.

2020.06.09 03:43 MilkshakeIsNice The Mute (Cosmic Horror)

Four and a half billion years ago, life began on the planet of Earth, and with it came the infinity of potential futures for it’s universe. The first forms were microscopic, only a few trillion atoms in size. They were as simplistic as it could get. They had the ability to consume for energy and reproduce; that was all that was needed.
As time went on, life began to become more advanced, larger, (and most importantly) more intelligent. This life would be capable of surpassing the universe’s own perils. Perils some would refer to as cogs in the machine of “The Great Barrier”.
Despite the mass extinctions that have threatened life time and time again on the planet, life continued on sooner or later. The grass became green, the birds grew wings to fly, and life started to become pristine and perfected with every passing millenia.
With this in mind, it is almost certain that the downfall began with the evolutionary trait of sentience, and eventually sapience. The evolving family tree in the Primates group eventually becoming known as homo sapiens, after constant evolution, now had too great of an intellectual potential for it and it’s home’s own good.
At an exponential rate, they began switching the rules of life that had been going steady for billions of years. Rather than adapting to the environment, the environment came to need to adapt to them. The resources once abundant in every corner of the globe became perverted to suit the needs of the humans, as they would begin to call themselves.
The species grew a carbon footprint that would never be able to dematerialize, as they grew more knowledgeable, with the idea of higher powers in existence becoming obscured in favor that they were the peak lifeform.
Unbeknownst to all living things however, there was one creature watching, learning, and living vicariously throughout all of life, it too viewing sapience as the greatest gift imaginable. This creature lived solely outside the ever expanding edge of the universe, meaning as the universe grew larger with each passing second, it grew. This entity would never possibly on its own be able to reveal itself to any living thing in the universe, nor could it ever want to, for the mind of this being was a database containing all knowledge of everything that has ever lived. As nobody knew of this being, it too didn’t know of itself.
This being, watching silently throughout the eons, is the mute; a higher power of unknown size, origin, and capability.
With a being of such inconceivable size, it is nothing less than ironic that the universe’s demise started with humankind’s discovery of items inconceivably small. This would mean the extermination of life in the universe would originate in the 1940s, with the discovery of virtual particles in the field of quantum mechanics, and roughly a decade and a half later with the discovery of neutrinos - subatomic particles so small they can pass through solid matter.
Despite the obvious nuclear threat that had been prominent in the world throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, it is almost undebatable that humankind had progressed farther in these 50 years than ever before. They took advantage of light’s near instantaneous traveling properties to make the internet. They would utilize semiconductors to create computers accessible to billions on the planet in compact sizes, but by far the most awe inspiring achievement accomplished was the demonstration of spatial travel.
This event proved to humanity, and the mute, that life didn’t have to be confined to a planet that they were slowly but surely killing as they progressed onwards.
Throughout this span of time, humanity’s consequences were beginning to show on a celestial scale. A hole in the ozone layer of the planet’s atmosphere was discovered to be from human use of products being released to the air. Miniature continents of trash began forming in the once beautiful blue oceans, filled with toxicity that would take a millenia to degrade. Millions of acres were defaced, animal habitats were wiped clean off the map, and the degrading situation of Earth would mean the children of those who caused it would be doomed to attempt to face the consequences of their ascendants. They had successfully created slums in heaven, and branded mother nature as a slave, a mistake that a no miracle, however great, could fix.
Perhaps that's what the Gidim research team had been hoping to find when they announced operation Galaga back in 2032. Using virtual particle manipulation and photon manipulation, and a large amount of hydrogen, a group of astrophysicists in Houston, Texas, led by Austin Gidim, had created a machine known as the neutrino catapult, capable of launching particles faster than light.
This launched particle, referred to as a Gidim particle, had managed a speed equivalent to the speed of light to the power of the speed of light (roughly 300,000 kilometers a second ^ 300,000 kilometers a second). Due to its original nature of a virtual particle, the first proven tests with these only lasted a few seconds before dissipating from existence, but the team had confidence that they would be able to manipulate these particle’s existence time to a few hours, being more than enough time to escape the known boundaries of the universe. This discovery was at first kept top secret, due to the potential unknown effects of these particles and what could arise from being shot at such a speed. For the first week of its discovery, only eleven humans knew of this discovery, and one unfathomable being outside of the universe.
Once the consequences were found to be insignificant at most, (slight radiation release here and there, as expected), the discovery was made public. The public announcement of the discovery was juxtaposed with the announcement of using the catapult to see outside the universe in the same speech. It was Sunday, August 22nd, 2032 when Austin Gidim made the speech which had everyone wondering, waiting for what was inevitably going to be the most significant discovery of their reality. The mute, joining them in their excitement, not knowing of itself.
“Since our first trip to the moon in 1969, the world’s greatest and most revered scientists and thinkers have been seeing space as the final frontier; the ultimate goal for an inevitable utopia of this species to be present, with each person their own galaxy. And now, we have before ourselves, the possibility to go the extra mile. With this new faster than light catapult, we are planning for its use to see what lies outside the very boundaries that make up the universe as a whole.”
It was official. Mankind now had the technology and the intentions to know what was beyond the universe. Excitement was thriving in humanity, and none was more excited than the mute. The date for the launch was set to be a week after the speech, which was plenty of time for the team to work. Within these days, theories on what lies ahead were booming.
Perhaps they had discovered the secret to exploring parallel universes. Maybe they would uncover an ethereal realm of some sort. Maybe they would find nothing at all. Whatever people believed, they waited patiently for answers. As for the team on the project, they had work to do. It felt like just another week in the office, even though everyone on the project knew it was much more. By the fifth day, they had their game plan set up.
The particles launched would emit heat, which would emit extremely high frequencies that traveled at the same speed. The frequencies would bounce off anything they successfully managed to collide with, and would return to computers on Earth with models showing its surroundings. Due to the particle’s extreme speed, there was an estimated 1e-6423 chance that a particle launched would collide with anything. It was obvious as well they would be launching multiple particles, in case one part of the border of the universe somehow happened to differ from another. By Saturday, there were half a thousand particles ready to be launched through the edge of the universe.
That Sunday, seemingly everyone with a television or internet tuned in to watch the broadcasted experiment as it happened. The scientists on the Gidim team were excited not only at the fact they were about to see what was beyond the universe, but also from the inevitable fame that would soon follow. “It is with great pride we hold today that we are living in what will undoubtedly become one of Humanity’s greatest milestones and achievements in history.

2020.06.06 22:53 pennylanebarbershop Here's what I think happened on 11/22/1963

For the past 5 years, I have studied, analyzed, and thought about the JFK assassination while sadly conceding that I might never be able to determine what really happened. So much of the evidence steered me in opposite directions, and I could never develop a scenario that didn’t conflict fatally with what appeared to be solidly established facts. That is, until now. Finally, I believe I have it figured out.
This change occurred mainly for two reasons- I put myself in the role of an assassination planner and secondly I came to a conclusion that much of the eyewitness testimony was flawed, itself for two reasons- simple mistaken observations/memory and, more importantly, the likelihood that many witnesses made up stories for various reasons- to feel important, to make money, to gain fame, just for fun, etc.
It became clear to me that having Lee Oswald or another person shooting from an open floor of the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD) would not have been an element of a competently-planned assassination plot. Nor for that matter using a Mannlicher-Carcano (MC) rifle, one of least reliable weapons available at that time.
But first, let’s consider the folly of planting an assassin on the 6th floor of the TSBD. This was an open floor accessible to many of the workers employed there. At any moment, some of these workers could have accessed this floor, perhaps to get a better view of the motorcade. At the time of the shooting, three of these employees were at a 5th floor window, directly beneath the sniper’s nest. They easily could have decided to go up one floor to get a better view, making it virtually impossible for the gunman to take a shot, unless he was willing to give himself up on the spot.
The cheap mail-order MC rifle would have been a poor choice to take (especially) the first shot, because the first shot would likely be the only one with the presidential limousine moving at a relatively slow speed. It would have been assumed that the limo driver would accelerate rapidly after initially hearing gunfire. Any subsequent shots would have been more difficult with the limo traveling faster. (That this speed change did not occur in the actual scenario could not have been foreseen).
Even if a professional assassin had been hired to shoot from the TSBD, he would have had to use the MC rifle so that the forensics would line up to support Oswald as the patsy. This is highly problematic and largely defeats the purpose of using a skillful assassin, but it is even worse when you consider the extreme difficulty of getting this person into and out of the building without being seen. Further, Oswald would have needed to hide to avoid being seen too soon after the shooting and thereby receiving an unwanted alibi. Anyone seeing him within about 75 seconds of the shooting would have destroyed the plot. The bottom line, though, is that a professional sniper would not have been positioned within the accessible working space of an open place of business. All it would have taken is for one of the TSBD employees to have seen the assassin exiting the sniper’s nest with a rifle to completely destroy the Oswald-as-patsy scheme. For these reasons, I have concluded with near certainty that Oswald fired the MC rifle from the 6th floor of the TSBD.
Having reviewed most of the eyewitness testimonies, it is impressive that over 75% of them reported hearing three shots, a few heard 4 or more. Aside from the three shots fired from the TSBD and possible echoes, there is one other source of sound that might have been mistakenly interpreted as a gunshot- the sound of the bullet cracking the skull of JFK. With the bullet traveling twice the speed of sound, bystanders near the limo at the location of the head shot would have heard the skull crack a fraction of a second before hearing the rifle blast. This would have sounded like two shots fired in rapid succession, which is consistent with the testimony of several witnesses, including some of those riding in the limousine. To people standing on the south side of Elm St. and near the head shot location as well as motorcycle cops on the left side of the limo, the skull explosion would have sounded like a shot coming from the direction of the grassy knoll. This is perhaps the reason for the subsequent rush of people up the slope of the knoll.
The most trustworthy eyewitness in my estimation is Karen Westbrook Scranton. She was located near the Stemmons Freeway sign, an ideal vantage point.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJghyNiPOoU&t=2096s
She heard three shots, with the first two close together, followed by a pause, and then a third. She reported that all of the shots came from the same place. Her account supports my theory of when each shot was fired.
Based on an extensive review of the Zapruder film, I have placed the three shots at Z185, Z232, and Z313. With each frame representing 1/18.3 seconds, there were about 2.5 seconds between the first two shots and about 4.5 seconds between the second and third shot. The timing of the second two shots was determined by analyzing Zapruder frames, whereas the time of the first shot was largely based on the reaction of Rosemary Willis, the little girl who can be seen running alongside the limo. She suddenly stops and looks over her right shoulder, a movement she later stated was in response to hearing a loud sound. The MC rifle could be fired every 2.3 seconds according to tests performed by the Warren Commission. This implies that Oswald fired quickly after the first shot, but paused after the second, either to take better aim or because he had trouble operating the bolt action.
The first shot was taken before the limo cleared an oak tree from the point of view of the sniper’s nest, but it was in an area of a gap in the foliage, offering a fairly good view. Oswald probably realized that time was running out and that he needed to get a shot off quickly even though it was not a totally clear view. This shot entered Kennedy’s back a few inches below the neckline and slightly right of center. It then ranged on a slightly upward path through the lower part of his neck and emerged just below the Adam’s apple, very slightly to the left side. Its energy was mostly spent at this time and was stopped from going any further by the knot of Kennedy’s necktie. This explains why this exit wound appeared more like an entry- it was a low velocity exit. This bullet fell out within the limo or else on the operating table in Trauma Room #1 at Parkland Hospital. It was picked up by someone who later placed it on a stretcher (that was not used by Kennedy or Connally). This became the famous ‘magic bullet’ CE 399. The relatively un-tumultuous path of this bullet explains its near pristine condition. By Z195 Kennedy is showing signs of being hit as his right elbow which was previously resting on the door frame as he was waving elevates to the level of his eyes. Later, by Z225 he reacts by raising both arms to the same level. Meanwhile Governor Connally is clearly not hit as late as Z230.
The second shot was at Z232. Oswald hurried this shot to almost the fastest he could get it off and he missed the president by about 6 inches. The bullet entered Connally’s back, broke a rib, and exited through his chest. By this point the bullet was still intact but was structurally damaged. It then hit his wrist and broke into at least three parts. One part entered his thigh, another hit the windshield of the limo, and a third exited the limo and landed near a manhole cover on the south side of the street (photos show a bystander picking up this fragment). The thigh and windshield fragments were retrieved and became Commission exhibits, though the fragment that landed near the manhole cover was not.
The third and final shot was taken at Z313 (to be precise, this shot left the rifle at Z311 because it took about 1/9 of a second for the bullet to reach the president). This bullet exploded Kennedy’s skull and dug out a good portion of the right lateral brain. A fragment of this bullet exited the limo and hit a curb on Main St. and ricocheted to the cheek of James Tague, a bystander. Other fragments composing most of the constituents of this bullet also exited the limo but were never recovered.
These three were the only shots fired in Dealy Plaza. I will now address the controversy surrounding a possible shot fired from the Grassy Knoll.
There has been much speculation that a shot was fired from the Grassy Knoll, most often credited to have occurred at Z313, the time of the head shot. The evidences supporting this theory are:
  1. Kennedy’s head and body lurched back and to the left after the head shot.
  2. A puff of smoke was observed by some witnesses in the area of the knoll.
  3. A motorcycle cop left and rear of the limo was hit with brain and blood matter with enough force to have him conclude that he might have been hit also.
  4. Acoustic analysis of a dictabelt recording suggested the presence of a shooter on the knoll.
  5. Lee Bowers, from the vantage point of a railroad tower observed people standing behind the fence on the knoll at the time of shooting.
  6. Ed Hoffman, a witness standing on Stemmons Freeway reported seeing a gunman running alongside the fence and handing off his weapon to a railroad employee before returning to his previous location.
  7. A police officer and then scores of bystanders stormed the knoll after the shooting, believing that a shot had come from there.
  8. A photo taken by Mary Moorman at the moment of the head shot was analyzed by photographic expert Jack White and was claimed to reveal the presence of a gunman dressed in a police uniform aiming a rifle at the president and a muzzle blast was also shown.
  9. Ralph Yarborough and perhaps others in the motorcade reported the smell of gunpowder as they rode along Elm St. near the point where Kennedy was hit in the head.
  10. A policeman reported that he challenged a person behind the knoll who displayed a Secret Service badge, whereas it was known that no Secret Service agent was in the area.
  11. An eyewitness reported that the gunman in the 6th floor window before the shooting kept looking to his right in the direction of the knoll, perhaps to see if the assassin was in place at that location.
  12. Doctors at Parkland hospital reported a large would in the back of the president’s head indicating a shot from the front.
Before tackling each of these points, it is best to consider some aspects related to a potential assassination plot and the reasons why placing an assassin on the Grassy Knoll would have been poor strategy.
The area behind the fence on the Grassy Knoll was a public parking lot. There was no way to ensure that a car would not pull up and park within several feet of the assassin at the exact moment that he was taking his shot at the president. A man stationed in a railroad tower a few hundred feet away would have a direct and unobstructed view of the assassin’s activities. At the point where an assassin would have a good shot from this location, the motorcade would have been essentially over, with the limo heading downhill and preparing to access the entrance ramp to Stemmons Freeway. It would have been assumed that the limo would be traveling well above the parade speed of 15 mph, more likely 25-30 mph at this point, making it very difficult to take an accurate shot at a target moving rapidly across the field of vision. In fact, it would have made it just as likely that the assassin would hit the First Lady instead. (The fact that the limo actually slowed down below the nominal parade speed at this point could not have been assumed by assassination planners. This was a combination of two things- the driver William Greer initially had a delayed response to the shooting and then hit the brakes to slow down so that S.S. Officer Clint Hill, who he must have seen in the rearview mirror running behind the limo, could climb aboard).
Speaking of the First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, there is another reason to conclude that the Texas trip would have been taken off the list for an assassination attempt. Normally Kennedy traveled alone, and it is likely, based on intelligence, that plots to kill him were in place during his recent trips to Chicago and Miami, where motorcades were cancelled for that reason. There might have been a reluctance to kill Kennedy while he was sitting next to his wife, for basic humanitarian reasons and the fear that Jackie would be killed as well, leaving the children without parents. (Yes, it’s hard to imagine assassination plotters thinking this way, but it is certainly possible).
So, beginning with solid reasons for concluding that a competent assassination plot would not have placed an assassin on the Grassy Knoll, it will take some extraordinary evidence to conclude that a shooter was indeed at that location. It is my opinion that none of the 12 points above are sufficient to make that conclusion. Here I address them all:
(1) It is true that Kennedy lurched back and to the left following the head shot. An analysis of Z312 and Z313 indicated his head momentarily moves forward. This may have been caused by a bullet strike or possibly due to the limo decelerating as the driver (Greer) was riding the brakes in order to allow S.S. agent Clint Hill to board the limo. Immediately after this, Kennedy’s moves dramatically in a direction away from the Grassy Knoll. From a physics perspective a bullet striking Kennedy’s head would cause only a small displacement, rocking his head around the neck pivot point, not driving his entire body back and leftward as observed. The bullet simply could not have carried that much momentum. It is much more likely that this was a neuro-muscular spasm caused by the extensive brain damage which occurred in the area of motor-muscular brain tissue in the right lateral hemisphere. Based on this, I conclude that the movement of Kennedy after the head shot does not require a shot from the Grassy Knoll.
(2) A puff of smoke was observed by some. This seems to be a red herring because an assassin’s rifle in 1963 would not produce smoke. There is no report of smoke emanating from the 6th floor window rifle and it seems unlikely that smoke would be observed from any modern weapon of its time, unlike weapons used during the Civil War, for example. It is possible that the reports of smoke were fabricated by some witnesses to bolster their impression of a knoll shooter.
(3) The motorcycle cop (Bobby Hargis) was characterized in some assassination books as being hit so hard with blood and brain matter that he felt he had been hit as well with a bullet. This, I found out by examining his testimony, was an exaggeration of what he testified. Yes, he was hit by some of this material but it was not so dramatic as to make him think that he was struck. The fact that he thought a shot came from the knoll was likely because the sound of the bullet hitting Kennedy’s skull was very loud and it would have seemed to have come from the direction of the knoll.
(4) The acoustic evidence has never been validated to have represented the time of the shooting and much evidence suggests that it was actually recording events after the shooting had taken place. Further, the Moorman photo clearly shows no shooter at the corner of the fence where the acoustic analysts placed the shooter.
(5) and (6) I take these together because they both represent eyewitness testimony from persons who had a view of the back side of the fence on the Grassy Knoll. Their testimonies conflict fatally. Hoffman reported seeing the gunman running west along the fence line and handing his weapon to a person dressed in a railroad worker’s uniform, who then broke down the weapon and placed it in carrying case. The assassin the brushed himself off and calmly walks back eastward along the fence line. Bowers, located in the railroad tower, reported none of this, but if it had happened, he could not have missed it. This totally discredits the Hoffman account. Bowers testimony was ingeniously massaged by several assassination authors to make it seem like he saw something suspicious, but actually he did not. He reported seeing two men standing behind the fence but that they were in line with the throat of the overpass, not anywhere near where anyone has placed the knoll shooter. Bowers’ testimony is perhaps the most powerful one suggesting that there was no shooter behind the fence because he could not have missed such an event had it happened.
(7) As discussed earlier the sharp and very loud sound of the bullet cracking the skull of the president would have been heard by the bystanders and for those located south of the limo, it would have seemed to have come from the direction of the knoll. This sound would have preceded the sound from the rifle by a fraction of a second, and so they would have seemed like separate shots.
(8) The Moorman photo did not have enough resolution for Jack White to have made his conclusion of a shooter and muzzle blast as well as an accompanying accomplice. The location of the ‘badge man’ was also ridiculously placed and would have been in full view of several bystanders, including Abraham Zapruder. I consider the Moorman photo to be counter-evidence for a knoll shooter because it eliminates the area of the fence line that would have been the optimal placement for the shooter.
(9) This seems to go along with puff of smoke, in that gunpowder would not have been smelled even within a few feet of the rifle, much less 45 feet away on a windy day. This cannot be anything more than a mistaken impression.
10) It is well established that there was an FBI special agent who walked to the area behind the knoll and who was challenged by a policeman. He showed his badge. It is likely that this was later mistakenly referred to as a Secret Service badge.
11) The 6th floor gunman was observed by witness Howard Brennan to have been repeatedly peering down to his right in the direction of the grassy knoll before the shooting. Perhaps to see if the knoll shooter was in place, but more likely he was sighting his points along Elm St. where he intended to take his shots.
12) This is the hardest point to refute and I remain uncertain how to do it. The Parkland doctors all agreed on the location of the head wound, being posterior and in the area of the cerebellum. But mysteriously, when they were asked to observe the autopsy photos, they all indicated that they looked legitimate. The Zapruder film is consistent with the autopsy photos showing the location of the wound as being mostly lateral. With some hesitation, I have concluded that the way Kennedy was placed on the table in Trauma Room #1 at Parkland Hospital, combined with the high stress situation, a priority placed on saving the president versus examining his wounds, and the way his hair was drenched and matted down in blood and brain matter, the doctors experienced a bit of an optical illusion as to where the head wound was located. I cannot believe that the Zapruder film was changed that expertly and that quickly as to mask the true position of the wound, though I realize some people have hypothesized this. So, in conclusion, I have to rely on the autopsy photos, the Zapruder film, and the doctors (hopefully not pressured) acquiescence to these photos to conclude that the president’s head wound was consistent with a shot from the TSBD and inconsistent with a knoll shot.
One additional point should be made- the groundskeeper for Dealy Plaza, Emitt Hudson, was positioned on the steps leading up to the fence. A Grassy Knoll shot would have occurred about 15 feet directly behind him and the bullet would have come close to hitting him. Yet, his testimony does not suggest that he experienced anything like what that suggests. This, by itself, comes very close to ruling out a shooter behind the fence.
Based on all of the above, I have concluded that an assassin was not located on the Grassy Knoll.
I will now address some of the issues that followed the shooting. Oswald had plenty of time to place his rifle on the floor next to the stairs on the 6th floor and walk down four flights to the second floor lunchroom before being accosted by a police officer and the building manager about 75 seconds after the final shot. The fact that he was not winded is not too surprising considering the little effort needed to descend stairs and his physical condition.
I believe the Warren Commission was correct in all of his subsequent movements, including taking a short bus trip, a taxi ride, a quick stop at his boarding house to fetch his pistol, shooting Officer J.D. Tippet at 10th and Patton, entering the Texas theater without paying ,and being arrested there.
Before I continue I will address the controversy about whether Oswald shot Tippet. One key piece of evidence in my mind is that Oswald attempted to shoot Officer Nick McDonald during his arrest in the theater and was stopped from doing so only by the skillful effort of another officer. This, to me, indicates his willingness to shoot police officers in a devil-may-care way, indicating a likely predilection to shoot Tippet as well. Eyewitness testimony is all over the map on who shot Tippet, but there is an important marker on the path from the Tippet scene to the theater where Oswald shed his jacket. This places Oswald in the time and place of the shooting. Also, Johnny Brewer, the shopkeeper who noticed Oswald’s guilty behavior on Jefferson St., followed him to the theater, and pointed him out to police- which backtracking places Oswald in the correct time and place to have killed Tippet.
There is evidence that another person entered the theater around 1 pm, before the Tippet shooting at around 1:12 pm, and went to the balcony of the theater. This is likely the person who was arrested and taken out the back of the theater. I believe that this person was not part of any conspiracy.
There has been much speculation that Tippet was part of the plot and that he was assigned to either kill Oswald or to take him to Redbird Airport for a plane trip out of the country. I have concluded that Tippet was not part of any conspiracy. His erratic movement in the moments leading up to his death are a combination of two things- he was involved in some controversy unrelated to the assassination that had him outside of his assigned district. Also, he was aware by police radio that the president had been shot and so would have been in suspense as to how he should respond, whether he would be called into Dealy Plaza or elsewhere.
There were two descriptions of the suspect broadcast on police radio prior to Tippet stopping Oswald at 10th and Patton. Thus, it is not surprising, given Oswald’s perhaps erratic movements (possibly changing walking directions after seeing Tippet) combined with his appearance matching the description, that Tippet would question Oswald. The forensics of Tippet’s bullet wounds was enough of a match to Oswald’s pistol to make me fairly sure that Oswald’s pistol was used in the shooting.
For all of these reasons I have concluded that Oswald shot Tippet. For the day, this makes Oswald taking 7 shots, the 1st and 3rd hitting Kennedy, the 2nd hitting Connally, and final 4 hitting Tippet, plus an attempted shot at Officer McDonald in the theater at the time of his arrest.
I realize that there is an issue related to Oswald arriving at 10th and Patton on time to kill Tippet. Oswald’s rooming house landlady testified that Oswald entered the house around 1:00 pm and left shortly thereafter, walking across the street to the bus stop located there. This would have made it nearly impossible for Oswald to have arrived at the Tippet scene one mile away at 1:12 pm without him running to get there. What I think likely happened is that Oswald grew impatient waiting for a bus to come by, so he thumbed a ride that took him only so far as to be in the vicinity of 10th and Patton. It might seem strange that the person who gave Oswald a ride would not have alerted authorities, but perhaps he or she did not want to get involved for their personal or legal safety. Nevertheless, this hitchhike theory is a way to explain Oswald’s on-time appearance at the Tippet shooting location.
It might seem strange that Tippet located Oswald so quickly following his arrival in Oak Cliff and for some time I considered this evidential of his involvement. But since then I learned that he was responding to a street disturbance very nearby in the moments prior to his murder. This coincidence may explain the unlikely meeting of the two.
One thing that must be discussed is a series of events preceding the assassination that appear to have been efforts to set up Oswald as a patsy. This included an incident at a shooting range and at a car dealership. The shooting range is very likely a fabrication or it involved somebody else because the dates do not match up with Oswald’s known movements or the fact that his rifle was stored in Ruth Paine’s garage for months prior to him retrieving it the night before the assassination. The car dealership story is also very likely a made-up story based on the face of its farcical elements.
However, there is one pre-assassination story that was determined by researchers and well as government officials to have been legitimate- the meeting at Silvia Odio’s apartment. It is probably true that Oswald was involved in both CIA activities and anti- and/or pro-Castro groups. This would not in itself preclude him from killing the president on his own initiative.
The main reason that I reject the Oswald-grooming theory as a prelude to the assassination is that it would have involved a very elaborate effort to make Oswald look guilty when all that was really needed was for him to bring his rifle to the TSBD and for the forensics to confirm that his rifle was used. Why would you need to do anything extra to prove his guilt in the shooting and to establish him as a patsy? Another point is that it would seem ridiculous to set the scene for Oswald to be guilty whereas the actual shooting was done in a manner that had a very low probability of success. As mentioned earlier, anyone could have accessed the 6th floor right before the motorcade appeared, or the motorcade could have been on time instead of 5 minutes late giving less time for the shooter to get set up, or Bonnie Ray Williams could have remained on the 6th floor after eating his chicken lunch instead of departing 15 minutes before the shooting for the 5th floor. In other words, the chance that Oswald would even get off a single shot was very low to merit going through all of the trouble to unnecessarily establish his guilt by staging pre-assassination tableaus.
Another point should be made concerning the method Oswald used to get his rifle into the TSBD. He relied on a 19 year-old co-worker to give him a ride home on the night before the assassination and to get him back to work the next day. Anything could have gone wrong with this plan. Also, retrieving his rifle from Ruth Paine’s garage was no sure-fire success. Ruth could have gone to the garage while Oswald was breaking it down and placing it into the bag. Being a smart woman, she could have put 2 and 2 together and realized that Oswald had made an un-customary trip to her house on a Thursday night, that he was retrieving his rifle to take to the TSBD, that Kennedy would be in a motorcade passing the TSBD, and that Oswald had previously taken a shot at General Walker 7 months earlier and learned from Marina that he had threatened to shoot Nixon. Ruth knew the TSBD building manager and would have called him and told him to confiscate the rifle upon Oswald’s arrival, killing the plot.
As an aside, some have theorized that Ruth Paine was involved and got Oswald the job at the TSBD for the purpose of him participating in the assassination. This is ridiculous. The motorcade route was not published at that time and also Oswald and another new employee started on the same day and it was only by coincidence that Oswald was assigned to work in the TSBD whereas the other employee was assigned to the annex building four blocks to the North. It is a quirk of history that if instead Oswald had been sent to the annex building the assassination would not have taken place.
The final point is a look at history and how almost all shootings of this nature end up being the work of a single shooter acting alone. We have seen this play out in countless scenarios where initially it is theorized that there might have been multiple shooters, but in the final analysis, it comes down to just one. Columbine H.S. being one of the few exceptions.
Oswald, his rifle, and his shooting location were not elements of anything approaching a competent assassination plan. The evidence is not overwhelming, but it is sufficient for me to conclude that Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963. This does not mean that he was not influenced in some way to kill Kennedy nor that he didn’t tell anyone that he was going to do it. But the bulk of the evidence suggests that he was inclined to perform a political assassination, as indicated by his attempt on the life General Walker in April of 1963 and his threatened assassination of Richard Nixon as reported by his wife, Marina.
My conclusion based on the preponderance of the evidence is that Oswald acted alone in killing Kennedy and Tippet and in wounding Connally. Other plots to kill Kennedy were in play but Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth, and San Antonio were eliminated from consideration perhaps due to the First Lady accompanying the president. Oswald may have been aware of these other plots but decided to take matters into his own hands, and he succeeded against all odds**.**

Force Majeure
by Pete Garcia
This year has been shaping up to be an even more prophetically charged than 2019. One of the more interesting, yet under-reported, strange goings-on, has been the lemming-like procession of Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) leaving their corporate respective organizations.
According to Challenger, Gray, and Christmas Inc., who has tracked statistics like these since 2002, the years 2019-2020 had seen the highest exodus of CEOs depart their organizations since they first began. Unlike 2008, in which the mortgage meltdown threw the entire economy into a tailspin, the economy had been booming up until the current COVID19 (Wuhan Flu) began its pandemic rampage across the globe.
For example, over 172 Chief Executives left their post in October 2019, making it 1,160 departures for the year. The previous year (2018), had seen only 425. However, back in October 2019, no one even knew what COVID19 was, much less worried about it ever becoming a pandemic. That month, held the highest record departures since 2008’s financial meltdown.
However, that single month record was shattered in January 2020, when over 215 Chief Executives left their position. At this point, the news of the Chinese-flu had just started to leak out of China, but the economic impacts had not yet been felt in the West. Here are some of the more notable departures:
~Bob Iger- Disney
~Page and Brin- Google
~Bill Gates- Microsoft, Berkshire Hathaway
~Dennis Muilenburg- Boeing
~Steve Easterbrook- McDonald's
~Mark Parker- Nike
~Devin Wenig- EBay
~Adam Neumann- We Work
~Kevin Burns- Juul
~Oscar Munoz- United
~Mark Okerstrom- Expedia
~Kevin Tsujihara- Warner Bros
~Ginny Rometty- IBM
Although I had seen these departures come across the news as they happened, I did not begin to consider this as a sign of the times until watching a Jason A video on YouTube. Although he does not answer it either, my initial question was why is the ‘managerial aristocracy’ departing at breakneck speed and in significantly high numbers? What do they know that we don’t, and when did they know it?
You have to remember that CEOs are the corporate-worlds equivalent of Four-Star Generals. They get all the perks. They get all the VIP passes. They get the best parking spots, offices, houses, hotels, paychecks; they literally live like Kings and Queens.
Why would anyone ever voluntarily give that up?
Also remember folks, CEOs are not dumb. They did not get (or stay) at the pinnacle of their respective empires by being ill-informed dummies. It does not make any sense that with a booming economy and technology literally evolving by the day that these managerial aristocrats would step down (or aside) when the going is really good. Their mass exodus makes sense when times are bad (2001, 2008), but not when things are on the up and up (record high stock markets).
Something has them spooked.
Assessment
Some have argued that the primary reason for all these CEOs stepping down is that the cultural dynamics have shifted since the MeToo movement began back in 2015. However, this does not explain why female CEOs are also stepping down (IBM, Altria, etc.). Many on the far right (Q for example) have connected this to a grand-scale conspiracy, intricately linking Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and death, as well as Harvey Weinstein’s arrest and conviction, to their sudden flight. It is argued (rightly so) that the rich and powerful tend to run in the same circles, thus, the fate of these two men may have spooked them about their own shadowy pasts.
Furthermore, many of these CEOs tend to lean left ideologically (if for nothing else, political top cover), it could be that they see retribution coming their way in light of the Democrat's repeated failed attempts to remove President Trump from office. Perhaps they fear the ongoing Durham and Barr investigations, which has, as of yet, not been fully released their findings in total.
My opinion on this is that why some of the aforementioned reasons might be true (to one extent or another), it does not answer the mail on why so many have left, and so quickly. They cannot all be in a giant, grand, conspiracy. Not now, when even the most guarded of secrets are leaked to the press at a dizzying rate. Even the most secretive of groups who do not even permit the press (e.g., Bilderberg) routinely leak information as if their prized information were guarded with a chain-link fence. Nevertheless, linking 2019 and 2020’s exodus of top executive chiefs to the May 2019 Bilderberg meeting, might have served sufficient suspicion, had US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner, not been in attendance.
However, perhaps it is more sinister and less conspiratorial than we think.
Let me explain.
As mentioned previously, many of the top CEOs (esp. in the technology sectors) lean left. They lean left because they primarily operate out of liberally controlled areas like California’s Silicon Valley, New York City, Seattle, Washington, Dallas and Austin, Texas. The people they employ in the tech sector, also live in these liberal, culturally diverse areas. They donate to top left-causes such as Planned Parenthood and any number of Soros-affiliated organizations. They do this, not so much because they care or believe in what the left is selling (socialism), but they do not want to take the political, economic, and cultural backlash for going against the cultural tide (see Nike’s absurd support for Colin Kaepernick).
They are in it to make as much money for their companies as humanly possible, and to do that, they have to be as politically neutral and left friendly as possible. They do not want the negative press either from academia, the media or from Hollywood, boycotting their goods and services. They have seen what the left can do to businesses who have stood their ideological ground (ex. California’s Proposition 8, Chick-Fil-A, Hobby Lobby, etc.) and want nothing of it.
Therefore, the current crop of top corporate officers is all that remains of the almighty western economy in 2020. Boardroom after boardroom filled with corporate cowards and ideological eunuchs. They care more about their golden parachutes than they do about the welfare and trajectory of their nation. These CEOs are leaving while the leaving is good. They know what goes up (the Dow for instance) must come down. They know that this economic boom of “Make America Great Again,” is not sustainable. Not with the nation being $22T in debt. They know to what depths, the Democrats and the left will go to either get rid of Trump, or ensure he does not get re-elected. Even if it means wrecking the economy in the process. Enter the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, panic-demic. From the New Yorker’s Intelligencer,
Last October, two months before the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 emerged in central China, a group of public-health experts gathered in New York City for a simulation. Their objective was to determine how industry, national governments, and international institutions could work together to respond to a hypothetical “pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences.”
Such a pandemic is no longer just a hypothetical. This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it’s preparing for a coronavirus pandemic and the organization’s former director flatly declared that COVID-19 “will become a pandemic.”
The characteristics of the virus currently causing global havoc are remarkably similar to the one proposed in the simulation, dubbed “Event 201.” The simulated virus, called CAPS for Coronavirus Associated Pulmonary Syndrome, began in Brazilian pigs who passed it to farmers. It resulted in symptoms ranging from mild flu-like symptoms to pneumonia. Three months in, the hypothetical illness had caused 30,000 illnesses and 2,000 deaths. (Source)
For the record, it is not strange or bizarre for organizations like ARNORTH (Army Northern Command), the CDC (Center for Disease Control), or the WHO (World Health Organization) to run disaster-scenarios linked to viral outbreaks. It is, however, curiously conspicuous that an exercise and an actual pandemic coincide so closely and seamlessly.
Whether the world’s top CEO’s knew what was coming ahead of time is both unprovable and irrelevant. What is relevant, and a more likely scenario is that these top CEO’s know the left’s desperation and know the intent and extent the left will go to, to use a major disaster to wreck Trump’s booming economy. The left cannot afford to go into the next election with a bumbling Biden at the helm, and a nation enjoying economic prosperity the likes of which, it has not seen in decades. That spells out four more years of Donald J. Trump, something that is completely unacceptable to the Democratic left.
That is the obvious explanation.
Here is where things get sinister.
When we think of the politically left, we think of Joe Biden, Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, etc. These are the elected leftist politicians who promote varying shades of socialism, social justice initiatives, and anti-Christian legislation that has progressed from bad to worse over the decades.
Yet these circus clowns are not the real power brokers.
They answer to those forces who fund their campaigns and keep their pockets lined.
Men like George Soros, the recently departed David Rockefeller, the Roman Catholic Church, and functionaries in and associated with the United Nations. There is undoubted many more of whom, we likely do not even know exist. These powerful men and women are avowed globalists. What that means, is they believe in true globalism, which equals, a singular, all-powerful world government. Everything else is just a means to an end. They are true believers in the idea that the cure to all that ails the world is an all-powerful, global government. From their perspective, you could end war, poverty, and man-made climate change, if a single government were in charge. Take, for example, this quote attributed to David Rockefeller,
“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” "The Powers That Be: America's Dirtiest Secrets". Book by William Caniano, 2007.
While the last few years have been extremely busy at debunking anything, anyone has ever said, one could simply look at the organizations David Rockefeller has helped chair or found (Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group). He was a well-known and devoted internationalist, and as such, the above quote (and many others) is not out of character. Nevertheless, what Rockefeller means here when he says “national auto-determination,” he means, the sovereignty and/or right of a nation to make its own path. The United States has its Constitution to guide its government; the British have theirs; the Russians, theirs, and so forth. What he was saying was that the world would be better off it was ran by a group of supranational (or above individual nations) intellectual elite and world bankers, rather than allowing individual nations to determine their own future.
Frightful thought.
However, because he thought that way, and many other powerful men and women do as well, how do we get to there (i.e., removing auto-determination) from the world we live in now?
Force Majeure. From as neutral a source as I can find, Wikipedia
Force majeure (/ˌfɔːrs mɑːˈʒɜːr, -məˈʒɜː FORSS mah-ZHUR, -⁠mə-ZHUR; French: [fɔʁs maʒœʁ]) – or vis major (Latin) – meaning "superior force", also known as cas fortuit (French) or casus fortuitus (Latin) "chance occurrence, unavoidable accident",[1] is a common clause in contracts that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties, such as a war, strike, riot, crime, plague, or an event described by the legal term act of God (hurricane, flood, earthquake, volcanic eruption, etc.), prevents one or both parties from fulfilling their obligations under the contract. In practice, most force majeure clauses do not excuse a party's non-performance entirely, but only suspend it for the duration of the force majeure.
In other words, acts/events that fall outside of anyone’s control. A force majeure event, forces, or can force a leveling of the playing field, a renegotiation of terms, a cancellation of obligations, and so forth. Global pandemics fall into this category.
So if we were to consider the present COVID19 (Wuhan Flu strand) a global pandemic, what is up for renegotiation? What does this mean for the average person out there? How will this be accomplished?
Let me answer in reverse.
  1. Through stages
  2. It means a reinvigorated attempt to push globalism through the finish line
  3. Anything that does not immediately and indefinitely support globalism is up for renegotiation.
Through Stages: This is part of what we have come to know as “incrementalism.”
Small incremental changes to how we live, or will accept as normal. If we look at the past and see the initial successes and ultimate failures of men like Napoleon, Hitler, Hirohito, etc., we see that they tried to implement their will by force and in short order. History has pointed out repeatedly, that the world rejected it and fought back.
However, if those changes were to come in small, incremental steps, we would become the frog in the proverbial pot. We would not know the water was too hot until it was too late for us to jump out of said pot. Moreover, that has been the story of the second half of the 20th-century.
At the conclusion of World War II, the world leaders met at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire in 1944, and came to what is known now as the Bretton Woods Agreement. It largely established the global financial structure going forward in the eventual defeat of the Third Reich and the rise of Western democracies.
The Bretton Woods standard worked from 1944 through 1971, but with both Europe and Japan on the rebound, the US’s ability to cover its debts with actual gold was in peril. That was when President Nixon “shocked” the global markets by replacing the gold standard with the ‘free-floating’ fiat currencies. Although the concept of the petrodollar was born in 1945 with then-President Roosevelt’s formalized alliance with the Saudis, it could not become politically viable until after Bretton Woods Agreement dissolved.
In the aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, 12 OPEC nations proceeded with an oil embargo (as recompense for the US support to Israel). This sent gasoline prices through the roof in 1973-74 but largely kept the prices to double what they had been before 1973, even after stabilizing. By 1979, the Carter Administration had negotiated a renewal of the petrodollar, assuring the seven-kingdom stability in exchange for assurances that all petrol transactions be conducted using US currency. This guarantee gave the Saudi’s geopolitical top cover with a resurgent Iran and the adversarial Soviet Union, as well as ensure US currency remained the world’s primary reserve currency. The world has largely operated under these rules until the advent of the internet age.
Once the world began dabbling online in earnest (mid-late 1990s), everything has been trending towards digitalization. What started out with meager efforts has become a full-force deluge of information digitalization. We are in the middle of what has been dubbed, the Industrial Revolution 4.0. As a refresher, these are:
~Industrial Revolution 1.0- Mechanization, steam, and waterpower
~Industrial Revolution 2.0- Mass production and electricity
~Industrial Revolution 3.0- Electronic, Information Technology (IT) systems, and automation
~Industrial Revolution 4.0- Cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, quantum systems, artificial intelligence
Therefore, what does the 20th-century globalist do in light of the evolving technology of the 21st-century?
The same as they always did.
The Hegelian Dialectic model.
Agenda: the centralization of power into fewer and fewer hands
Thesis: manufactured problem designed to invoke a particular reaction
Antithesis: the stated reaction to a manufactured problem
Synthesis: the predisposed solution to a manufactured problem
The 20th-century has been to date, the most violent and turbulent century on record yet at the same time, humanity was at the pinnacle of innovation, invention, and information processing. How could we get too-?
· 101 million deaths due to famine?
· 177 million deaths due to murder?
· 131 million deaths due to war?
1,680 million deaths due to infectious diseases?

Globalization as the end state.
Fair to say, that if I were a 20th-century globalist, with the means and ability to affect change at the national and international level, I would use a crisis to advance my agenda. So what is my agenda?
Agenda: Centralization of power for a global government
Thesis: The world is a dangerous and lawless place and requires international (or supranational) laws to provide peace and security to the populace
Antithesis: Pandemics, terrorism, authoritarian despots with dangerous ideology, religious extremism, and climate change
Synthesis: Use each crisis to embolden some new global initiative that diminishes the sovereignty of the individual state, and gives power to a supranational governing body
So far, that thinking has gotten us the League of Nations (failed), the United Nations (failing), and the European Union (failing). So why, and how can the global elite of international bankers and financiers, make the world bend to their will?
Renegotiation
This is where technological advancements come into play. What is something that everyone needs? The obvious answers would be food, water, clean air, and shelter. Yet, as the world has moved on from being primarily agrarian barter-based system, to that of a market based one, more and more people require currency in order to survive, particularly in Western society. This is something that the pioneers in financing noticed going back as early as the 16th-century. There was a most notable Jewish-German family in the 18th-century who took notice of this and capitalized on this growing reality with a fury. The Rothschild family has been in the money-business since the late 1700s, and they have made their fortunes, often funding every side of a war or conflict. Their version of the “golden rule” was whoever owns the gold makes the rules.
This fits in line with our understanding of freedom and incrementalism. The Rothschild did not care what flag you waived, or whether you voted or not, they simply wanted to be the power behind the throne. They stayed in power by keeping this regimen. However, they never let a crisis go to waste.
When a crisis of significant magnitude occurred (force majeure), they always used those moments to advance their causes and put themselves in greater positions of authority. That is who has real power. They have set up shop in major centers of commerce, often transforming the landscape of those cities into the hubs of financial power for world leaders for centuries. I mention them only in reference to a quote that has long been attributed to the British Baron Nathan Meyer Rothschild (1840-1915), which states,
“Let us control the money of a country and we care not who makes its laws.”
Wealthy families like the Rockefellers and Rothschild’s may not care who is at the helm of nations, so long as they remain the power behind those thrones. However, if devoted globalists and internationalist view a singular world government, as their ultimate end-state, then we should be able to measure each major global crisis (going back decades) to see what was giving up to reach said end-state?
Conclusion
You might be wondering what the exodus of powerful CEOs and this long history lesson of 20th-century globalism has in common with our ongoing global reaction to the Coronavirus (Wuhan-Flu strand)?
First, let me say what it is not.
It is not simply a Democratic plot to unseat a republican president by crippling the US economy. As much as the left hates Donald Trump- Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of their political ilk, have a hard enough time stringing simple sentences together, much less, coming up with a multilayered scheme for global domination. They simply lack the mental bandwidth to ruminate on that level of strategy.
Congressional Democrats think only terms of two-year blocks of time and their party’s immediate social-justice efforts. Unseating Trump, whether through unconstitutional efforts, phony investigations, and illegitimate impeachment show-trials, is only part of the larger machinations at hand.
What is at stake is the international “swamp” stepping up to shut nationalism down. President Trump represents a return to nationalism and the American supremacy that dominated the second half of the 20th-century. This is wholly unacceptable to globalists around the world, which includes leaders from Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa. Unseating him is primary in the sense of stopping any momentum he can get the nation to build upon, which is why this particular pandemic, is interesting. Compared to other pandemics (Spanish Flu, H1N1, MERS), the Coronavirus (Wuhan Flu) has both the mildest symptoms and reactions, as well as the lowest lethality rates of all the other major pandemics.
Yet, the international community’s response to this particular pandemic is the most severe we have seen in living memory. It makes you wonder, since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, which saw sixty-million infections, three-hundred thousand hospitalizations, and almost two-thousand deaths, barely warranted a mention on the news.
Let me put this another way. If our media had treated this Coronavirus (Wuhan Flu) as if it did the 2009 H1N1 (Swine Flu), would you have noticed? Again, I am not downplaying the potential severity of it; I am simply asking a question as to the legitimacy of the present national and international response.
Yet, as of 24MAR2020, the US has 44,183 cases of infections and 544 deaths (Source-CDC). Most of these deaths were of people over the age of 70 and/or, already had underlying health conditions. The lethality rate globally is far higher, but that is in large part due to either the lack of adequate public health and access to medical facilities. Still, in terms of lethality, COVID19 (Wuhan Flu) is by a large measure, still less lethal than previous pandemics.
In response to the potential threat, the global economy began to ground to a halt. Many have argued that the reaction to this is most unwarranted and that the mandated cure (social distancing/quarantine) is worse than the disease. Tens of thousands of businesses are facing shutting down, putting millions at risk of unemployment, homelessness, and aggravating other medical issues they may have required employment and insurance to cover. Whole industries face solvency issues, in light of the present panic: airlines, cruise lines, travel, manufacturing, theme parks, sports, and service/hospitality industries are facing severe disruptions and varying forms of bankruptcies.
Did any of the exiting CEOs have any “insider knowledge” concerning what was coming last year, and decide to cash out ahead of the coming financial tsunami? As of March 2020, we do not know. Perhaps a whistleblower will step forward in the coming months, who can provide the truth regarding why so many CEOs have decided to remove themselves from the pinnacles of power just before the worst economic slowdown the US has seen since the Great Depression.
However, we do know some things for certain.
  1. We know that since the beginning of the 20th-century, power has historically and consistently becoming consolidated over the past 120 years. Every time a crisis happens, the little banks are bought out by the big banks. Big businesses buy out the little businesses. That has been the model since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The federal government has grown in power and authority.
  2. We know that the Bible states that in the last days, the world would go through birth pangs (Matthew 24:3-14). These birth pangs would build in frequency and intensity until the Rapture of the Church presents the world with its perfect crisis (1 Thess. 5:1-9).
  3. We know that a man known as ‘the lawless one’ or the ‘Antichrist,’ will rise to power who will control all of the buying and selling in the world. The False Prophet, who will aid him through supernatural signs and wonders will enforce his rule of law. This man is able to control all the buying and selling in the world, through a form of forced worship that embeds some form of technology onto the bearer’s forehead or hand (Revelation 13).
However, what if the Mark of the Beast isn’t a currency per se, but simply the technological platform (e.g., blockchain?) by which all cryptocurrencies and information outlets are rendered useable? What if, without this technological “key” embedded in the bearer, nothing works? Eschatologists and prophecy students have long wondered how one man could control all buying and selling over the entire earth.
What if he didn’t have too?
What if the Antichrist just needed to control the technology, which opened all the doors to buying and selling?
Like a newer, more sinister version of Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs. If we married that thought of controlling access with the more recent suggestions by some that the Antichrist will be a hybrid of sorts, embedded with a form of artificial intelligence. If that were the case, he might easily garner control of a complex system (or system of systems), perhaps tied to a central quantum computing mainframe, that has the processing power to control numerous networks all at the same time. The only people who would have access to the system (to buy, sell, rent, go online, etc.) were people who have demonstrated loyalty to The Beast by permanently taking the mark.
If access by loyalty is what the mark of the beast represents that leaves only the logistics of getting everyone on board. At present, there are three major (and many minor) initiatives ongoing at the global level that seem to be pointing toward this very thing.
Global Network/ Infrastructure- (Project Kuiper, OneWeb) corporations and governments join to enshroud the earth with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites supporting a global, 5G network
In a world divided between digital haves and have-nots, billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson are trying to close the gap. The three entrepreneurs separately aim to launch thousands of small satellites to zip around the globe in what is known as low-Earth orbit, or LEO. Their plan is to prosper by offering high-end data services to stock traders and others willing to pay richly to shave a few milliseconds off their transmission times. The satellites should also deliver high-speed internet coverage for regions too poor or remote to attract it on the ground. Neither result is certain. Startup costs in the billions of dollars are. (Source)
With OneWeb, it doesn’t matter where you are. Soon everybody will have access to high speed, reliable Internet. We are a pioneering company building the first global communications network to be powered by a constellation of low-Earth-orbit satellites and will be providing connectivity to people and businesses everywhere around the world. Available from 2021. (Source)
Global Currency- (Sovereign Sky) a space-based, blockchain global, digital currency
The Planet’s first space-based superfast block chain powering the new “Free World Currency” designed to re-distribute the world’s wealth to provide and protect our children, save and preserve our wildlife and aim to help eradicate global poverty. (Source)
Stage 1: “Connectivity” boxes will be distributed by charities to villages and people in need throughout the world.
Stage 2: Satellites connect to the Modems and the Antenna.
Stage 3: The modems convert the satellite signal to Wi-Fi which the phones pickup.
Stage 4: The idea is to create a global Wi-Fi network and establish a space-based digital “Free World Currency” to help redistribute the world’s wealth to the less fortunate and help support the one billion children worldwide who live in poverty. (Source)
Global Identity- (ID2020) a global initiative with numerous, international organization, seeking to implant every person on the planet with biometric technology
Combining the power of biometrics and blockchain to provide a global identity solution (Source)
On Friday, 20 May 2016, ID2020 – a strategic, global initiative launched in response to the Sustainable Development Goal 16.9: “provide legal identity to all, including birth registration, by 2030”, in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, hosted the “ID2020 Summit – Harnessing Digital Identity for the Global Community” at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
Around one-fifth of the world’s population (1.8 billion people) is without legal identity, which deprives them of access to healthcare, schools, shelter, justice, and other government services. Commonly affected groups include refugees displaced by war, territorial disputes, victims of famine, societal outcasts, global disorder, political instability, competition for resources and climate change. (Source)
What is of interest to us today is that the Bible foretold all of this some two-thousand years ago. Note the underlined in the passage below and the corresponding parenthesis noting what we just finished discussing. While we do not yet know the meaning of 666 beyond its stated meaning in Revelation, and its historical, biblical connection to the weight of King Solomon’s gold (1 Kings 10:14), at least both instances have a tangible connection to wealth. The Greek word for calculate is psēphizō and it means to either count or to vote. Perhaps this 666 is something people willingly vote for in a moment of crisis (like say after the Rapture of the Church). We know that the Rapture will remove tens of millions of believers off the face of the earth in a moment. That will have significant global economic and political ramifications, far beyond what a pandemic could do.
He causes all (denotes absolute authority), both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one (access) may buy or sell (commerce) except one (loyalty) who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name (some form of technology).
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. Revelation 13:16-18

(February-March 2003)


Recent findings about the exotic properties of monatomic gold and the platinum group metals are rediscoveries of an advanced science understood or at least known by the ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Israelite priests.


Throughout the past century, and especially since the days of Albert Einstein, scientists have been searching for the Holy Grail of modern physics, which they classify as a "Unified Theory of Everything".
This has led to some amazing discoveries and the emergence of a whole new language, which includes superstrings, quarks and superconductivity, along with an awareness of hitherto unknown planes of existence beyond our own familiar space-time.
In the field of quantum mechanics, scientists have recently confirmed that matter can indeed be in two places at once. It is now established that, through quantum entanglement, particles millions of light-years apart can be connected without physical contact. Space-time can now be manipulated, teleportation is becoming a reality, gravity-resistant material is heralded for air transport, and virtual science has led to a greater understanding of hyper-dimensional environments.
When discussing the attributes of monatomic gold and the platinum group metals in Genesis of the Grail Kings, I remarked that it would not be long before the potential of these noble metals was announced for environment-friendly fuel cells. These, I suggested, would supersede fossil fuels for transportation and other practical purposes. At the same time, I touched on their future use in the medical arena, particularly in the field of cancer treatment. More especially, we looked at the gravity-defying attributes of these exotic white-powder substances and at their abilities to superconduct and literally bend space-time.
The truly astonishing fact about the enigmatic white powder of high-spin gold and platinum group metals is that it is not actually a new discovery. The ancient Mesopotamians called it shem-an-na and the Egyptians described it as mfkzt (vowels are omitted in the hieroglyph translation), while the Alexandrians venerated it as a gift from Paradise and later chemists such as Nicolas Flamel called it the Philosophers' Stone.
At all stages of its history, the sacred "powder of projection" was reckoned to have extraordinary powers of levitation, transmutation and teleportation. It was said to produce brilliant light and deadly rays, while at the same time being a key to active physical longevity. In today's world, the Institute for Advanced Studies (Austin, Texas, USA) has described the substance as "exotic matter", and superconductivity (one of its primary characteristics) has been claimed by the Center for Advanced Study (University of Illinois, USA) as "the most remarkable physical property in the universe".
It is clear, however, from the documentary evidence of ancient times, that the attributes of superconductors and gravity defiance were known, even if not understood, in a distant world of priestly levitation, godly communication and the phenomenal power of the electrikus. In Greek mythology the quest for the secret of this substance was at the heart of the Golden Fleece legend, while in biblical terms it was the mystical realm of the Ark of the Covenant, the golden coffer which Moses brought out of Sinai and was later housed in the Temple of Jerusalem.
Irrespective of all this, the earliest historical record of mfkzt powder is probably the most telling of all. It appears in a very specific guise in the Egyptian Pyramid Texts, sacred writings which adorn the 5th dynasty pyramid tomb of King Unas at Saqqara. Here is described the locality in which the King is said to live forever with the gods, and it is called the Field of Mfkzt, an ethereal location associated with an otherworldly dimension called the Field of the Blessed.
Given that mysterious processes concerning gold have an alchemical ring about them, and since the monatomic powder of projection, although made from noble metals, is classified as a "stone", let us consider the writings of the 17th-century alchemist Eirenaeus Philalethes.
This renowned British philosopher - revered by Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Elias Ashmole and others of his day - produced a work in 1667 entitled Secrets Revealed. In this treatise, he discussed the nature of the Philosophers' Stone, which was commonly thought to transmute base metal into gold.
Setting the record straight, Philalethes made the point that the Stone was itself made of gold, and that the Philosophers' art was in perfecting this process:
Our Stone is nothing but gold digested to the highest degree of purity and subtle fixation ... Our gold, no longer vulgar, is the ultimate goal of Nature.
In another treatise entitled A Brief Guide to the Celestial Ruby, Philalethes pronounced:
It is called a Stone by virtue of its fixed nature; it resists the action of fire as successfully as any stone. In species it is gold, more purer [sic] than the purest; it is fixed and incombustible like a stone, but its appearance is that of a very fine powder.
Some time earlier, in the 15th century, the French alchemist Nicolas Flamel wrote in his Last Testament, dated 22 November 1416, that when the noble metal was perfectly dried and digested it made a fine "powder of gold", which is the Philosophers' Stone.
The Light of the Ancient World
Returning to ancient Egypt, we find further references to mfkzt at various sacred locations. One of these relates to the treasures of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III, as reproduced in a bas-relief at the Temple of Karnak. In the metals section, there are a number of cone-shaped objects. They are explained as being made of gold, but carry the rather odd description, "white bread".
It was at Karnak where, in about 1450 BC, Pharaoh Tuthmosis III founded his metallurgical fraternity of Master Craftsmen, with 39 members on the High Council. They were called the Great White Brotherhood - a name which, it was said, derived from their preoccupation with a mysterious white powder of projection.
The powder features again in an Alexandrian document called the Iter Alexandri ad Paradisum. This is an old parable of Alexander the Great's journey to Paradise: the kingdom of Ahura Mazda, the Persian god of light. The account features the enchanted Paradise Stone, which had numerous magical properties and was said to outweigh its own quantity of gold--although, when transposed to a powder, even a feather could tip the scales against it!
The powder's association with light was discovered again by the archaeologist Sir William Flinders Petrie in 1904. Researching the mountain wilderness of Sinai for the Egypt Exploration Fund, he discovered a hitherto unknown Egyptian temple at the summit of Mount Serâbît (better known as Mount Horeb, from the Bible account of Moses and the Ark of the Covenant).
Here in this complex of halls and shrines, there were numerous inscriptions relating to mfkzt, accompanying a variety of hieroglyphs for light. Also, in line with the Karnak reliefs, presentations of conical bread-cakes were apparent in the Serâbît wall carvings. One of these was a representation of Tuthmosis IV in the presence of the goddess Hathor. Before him were two offering-stands topped with lotus flowers, and behind him a man bearing a conical object described as "white bread".
Another relief portrays the treasurer, Sobekhotep, presenting a conical loaf to Pharaoh Amenhotep III. In this respect, however, Sobekhotep is described as,
"He who brought the noble and precious stone to his majesty", and he is called "The Great One over the secrets of the House of Gold".
In all cases where the mfkzt powder of projection is allied to gold, bread and light and classified as a "stone", it is also related to fire. Interestingly, these things are all brought together in the Old Testament book of Job, which states (28:5-6):
As for the earth, out of it cometh bread; and under it is turned up as it were fire. The stones of it are the place of sapphires, and it hath the dust of gold.
Another biblical text, from the book of Exodus, discusses this mysterious combination - but in a form which moves one step nearer to the "bread" connotation by describing the white powder as a type of food.
It appears in the story of Moses and the Israelites at Mount Horeb in Sinai, when Moses is disturbed to find that his brother Aaron has collected the gold rings from the Israelites and forged from them a golden calf as an idol of worship. The account relates that Moses took the golden calf, burned it with fire, transposed it into a powder and fed it to the Israelites.
This story has long baffled theologians because heating or burning gold with fire does not, of course, produce powder; it produces molten gold. Later in the story, however, it is explained that the fine powder could be wiped with frankincense and made into white bread cakes, which the old Septuagint Bible calls "bread of the presence".
All of this is mixed and mingled with accounts of fire on the mountain, and the express importance of the Ark of the Covenant, the golden coffer which sent out deadly spears of lightning from between the wings of the cherubim which surmounted its lid. In keeping with the bread of the presence, these bolts of Ark-light were similarly referred to as "the presence" (seemingly, the presence of God), and the Greeks called it the electrikus (or electrum).
Back in old Babylonia, the enigmatic white powder was called an-na, meaning "fire-stone", and when made into conical cakes it was shem-an-na, denoting cone-shaped or highward fire-stone. According to the Bible, the Israelites referred to the bread-powder as manna, which sounds somewhat similar. It is explained by Flavius Josephus in his 1st-century Antiquities of the Jews that the word manna was actually a question, meaning "What is it?"--and the book of Exodus confirms this, stating "They called it manna because they knew not what it was".
This is totally in line with mfkzt revelations from the Egyptian Book of the Dead (alternatively called the Papyrus of Ani). This 18th-dynasty scroll from Thebes, acquired by the British Museum in 1888, is extensively illustrated and is around 76 feet (over 23 meters) in length. In this ancient ritualistic work, the bread of the presence is associated with a pharaoh who seeks the "terminal enlightenment" and, at the completion of each stage of his journey, asks the repetitive question, "What is it?"
Other similar texts date back to the 3rd millennium BC, and it is clear from the Mount Serâbît relief's in Sinai that the Egyptian kings were ingesting the white manna of gold from around 2180 BC. However, only the metallurgical adepts of the mystery schools (the Master Craftsmen) knew the secret of its manufacture, and the ultimate High Priest of Memphis held the title of Great Artificer.
The "terminal enlightenment" (or, as the Greeks called it, the gnosis) was an ideal of perpetual quest. As against the physical body, one was also reckoned to have a "light body", which similarly had to be fed so as to be nurtured and to grow. The "light body" was called the ka and, although essentially an intangible feature of life, it was said to remain active in the Afterlife. The food of the ka was light, which generated enlightenment, and the generative substance of light was the mfkzt white powder of gold.
Holding this information in mind, while remembering that all aspects of such discoveries have been a constant source of bewilderment for historians, theologians and even scientists, we can now move forwards in time to our present era.

White Powder Gold Rediscovered
Taking our leave of the Middle East, our story will continue for a while in America where, quite by chance, the mysteries of this long-forgotten science were rediscovered quite recently.
Not only did mfkzt re-emerge to find its place at the forefront of quantum physics research, but the stories of the Ark of the Covenant, the accounts of lightning, levitation and other godly attributes of the ancient texts, quite suddenly became modern scientific reality.
In 1996, the story of this initial discovery was reported in NEXUS articles by the Phoenix, Arizona, crop farmer David Hudson [see 3/05-6]. He explained that his soil suffered from a high sodium content, which caused the surface to be hard and impenetrable by water. To combat this (back in 1976), he was injecting sulphuric acid into the ground so as to break down the crust to a manageable consistency, but, on testing soil constituents that were not dissolved by the acid, he found that one particular material had a most unusual quality.
When heat-dried in the Arizona sun, it would flare into a great blaze of white light and totally disappear. Under spectroscopic analysis, however, the substance registered as "pure nothing"!
Following unsuccessful tests at Cornell University, a sample was sent to Harwell Laboratories in Oxfordshire, England, for neutron activation analysis, but even they could not obtain a suitable reading. Eventually, with assistance from the Soviet Academy of Sciences, it was determined that the mysterious, glowing white substance was composed entirely of platinum group metals in a form hitherto unknown to science.
In the course of continued research, the material was regularly heated and cooled, with a resultant fluctuation in its gravitational weight. It was also discovered that, at a certain temperature, the white bead would fall apart to become a monatomic (single atom) powder, at which point its weight fell dramatically to 56% of its starting weight. Further heating at 1160ş centigrade then transformed the precious substance into a wonderfully clear glass, at which point the material weight returned to its original 100%. It was seemingly impossible, but it happened time and time again!
Totally bewildered, the scientists continued their investigations. When they repeatedly heated and cooled the sample under inert gases, they found that the cooling processes took the sample to an amazing 400% of its starting weight; but when they heated it again, they found it weighed less than nothing--way below zero.
When they removed the sample from the pan, they discovered that the pan actually weighed more than it did with the material in it, and they perceived that the sample had the ability to transfer its weightlessness to its supporting host. In other words, even the pan was levitating! This was precisely in accordance with the old Alexandrian alchemical text which had discussed the golden Paradise Stone over 2,000 years before: that the material could outweigh its original quantity of gold, but, when transposed to powder, even a feather would tip the scales against it.
The substance was also determined to be a natural superconductor with a null magnetic field, repelling both north and south magnetic poles, while having the ability to levitate and store any amount of light and energy within itself.
At that stage of development, David Hudson met with Dr Hal Puthoff, Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin, Texas. In his research into zero-point energy and gravity as a zero-point fluctuation force, Puthoff had determined that when matter begins to react in two dimensions (as Hudson's samples were doing), it should theoretically lose around four-ninths of its gravitational weight. That is about 44%, precisely as discovered in the white powder experiments.
Hudson was therefore able to confirm Puthoff's theory in practice, explaining that when entering a superconductive state the monatomic powder registers only 56% of its starting weight; also, that when heated it can achieve a gravitational attraction of less than zero, at which point, the weighing-pan also weighs less than it did when empty.
Since gravity determines space-time, Puthoff concluded that the powder was "exotic matter" and was capable of bending space-time.
However, the mfkzt powder would then be resonating in a different dimension, under which circumstance it should become totally invisible. Again, Hudson confirmed that this was precisely the case: the sample certainly did vanish from sight when its weight disappeared.
What was being said here was not simply that the substance could be moved out of perceptual vision, but that it was literally transported into an alternative parallel plane, a fifth dimension of space-time. The proof of this was ascertained by attempting to disturb and scoop the substance with spatulas while it was invisible, so that it would be positioned differently when it returned to a visible state. But this did not happen, and the substance returned to precisely the same position and shape as last seen. Nothing was moved or disturbed in the invisible interim, because it had not been there. In short, it was not invisible: it had actually altered its physical state and had transposed into another dimension.
Dr Puthoff explained that this was like the difference between a conventional stealth aircraft, which cannot be detected by radar, and one that can literally disappear into another dimension.
This, then, is the superconductive dimension of the Orbit of Light or, as the Egyptian tomb records called it, the Field of Mfkzt.
In the early 1990s, articles concerning stealth atoms and superconductivity began to appear with great regularity in the science press. The Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen as well as the US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratories in Chicago and its Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee all confirmed that the elements discovered by Hudson certainly existed in the monatomic state. These included gold and the platinum group metals: iridium, rhodium, palladium, platinum, osmium and ruthenium.
When filing his patents, Hudson had the substances classified as Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements (ORMEs), and the scientific terminology to describe the monatomic phenomenon is "asymmetrical deformed high-spin". The substances are superconductors because high-spin atoms can pass energy from one to the next with no net loss of energy.
Warping Space-Time with Exotic Matter
Manipulation of space-time also became a subject of special interest, leading to an astonishing May 1994 announcement in the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity. Written by the Mexican mathematical scientist Miguel Alcubierre, it stated:
It is now known that it is possible to modify space-time in a way that allows a spaceship to travel at an arbitrarily large speed by a purely local expansion of the space-time behind the spaceship and an opposite contraction in front of it--a motion faster than the speed of light, reminiscent of the warp drive of science fiction.
This was followed a few months later by a related article in the American Scientist ("Space-time Hypersurfing", vol. 82, pp. 422-3, October 1994). In this study, Michael Szpir showed how Alcubierre's concept did not violate Einstein's theory that no object can travel faster than light. He explained that, when in warp mode, the craft would not actually be traveling at all. The theoretical acceleration would be enormous, but the true rate of acceleration would be zero.
Here, then, was a form of speed-of-light travel that required minimum time and minimum fuel ... only that the necessary chunk of space-time would ostensibly have moved from in front of the craft, to be relocated behind it, by means of contraction and expansion respectively.
But what was the necessary device to make this possible? The Alcubierre article explained that "exotic matter will be needed to generate a distortion of space-time".
Britain's BBC News science editor Dr David Whitehouse subsequently reported:
The idea relies on the concept that, to physicists, space is not empty ... Space has a shape that can be distorted by matter ... The starship would simply rest in a warp bubble between the two space-time distortions.
So, what is the "exotic matter" to which Alcubierre referred? It is matter which has a gravitational attraction of less than zero. Szpir described it as,
"matter with the curious property of having a negative energy density, unlike normal matter (the stuff that makes up people, the planets and the stars), which has a positive energy".
The necessary exotic device is an operative superconductor, and Hal Puthoff had already explained that, in this regard, the Phoenix mfkzt was exotic matter with the ability to bend space-time.
Modern Science Meets Ancient Alchemy
Reverting to where we began, we can now take another look at ORMEs in relation to their regular ingestion by the Egyptian pharaohs and Babylonian kings, to see precisely how these monatomic elements were used to feed their light bodies, with some astonishing results.
In the May 1995 issue of Scientific American, the effect of the platinum group metal ruthenium was discussed in relation to human DNA. It was pointed out that when single ruthenium atoms are placed at each end of a short strand of DNA, the strand becomes 10,000 times more conductive. It becomes, in effect, a superconductor. For some time, chemists had suspected that the double helix might create a highly conductive path along the axis of the molecule, and here was confirmation of the fact.
Similarly, the Platinum Metals Review has featured regular articles concerning the use of platinum, iridium and ruthenium in the treatment of cancers (which are caused through the abnormal and uncontrolled division of body cells). When a DNA state is altered (as in the case of a cancer), the application of a platinum compound will resonate with the deformed cell, causing the DNA to relax and become corrected. Such treatment involves no surgery; it does not destroy surrounding tissue with radiation nor kill the immune system, as does radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
The medical profession entered the high-spin arena when the biomedical research division of the pharmaceutical company Bristol-Myers Squibb announced that ruthenium atoms interact with DNA, correcting the malformation in cancer cells. (Monatomic gold and platinum metals are in effect "stealth atoms", and it has now been ascertained that body cells communicate with each other by way of stealth atoms through a system of light waves.) What the new science determines is that monatomic ruthenium resonates with the DNA, dismantles the short-length helix and rebuilds it correctly, just as one might dismantle and resurrect a dilapidated building.
It is known that both iridium and rhodium have anti-ageing properties, while ruthenium and platinum compounds interact with the DNA and the cellular body. It is also known that gold and the platinum metals, in their monatomic high-spin state, can activate the endocrinal glandular system in a way that heightens awareness, perception and aptitude to extraordinary levels. In this regard, it is considered that the high-spin powder of gold has a distinct effect upon the pineal gland, increasing melatonin production.
Likewise, the monatomic powder of iridium has a similar effect on the serotonin production of the pituitary gland, and would appear to reactivate the body's "junk DNA" along with the under-used and unused parts of the brain.
It is of particular significance that, irrespective of all today's costly and extensive research in these areas, the secrets of the highward fire-stones were known to our ancestors many thousands of years ago. They knew that there were superconductors inherent in the human body: they were the elements of individual consciousness which they called the "light body" (the ka).
They knew that both the physical body and the light body had to be fed to increase hormonal production, and the ultimate food for the latter was called shem-an-na by the Babylonians, mfkzt by the Egyptians and manna by the Israelites.

The magical powder of projection was manufactured by the priestly Master Craftsmen of the temples (the Guardians of the House of Gold) for the express purpose of deifying the kings ... and it re-emerges today as the primary new substance in fields ranging from cancer treatment to stealth aircraft, and will provide the essential "exotic matter" required for warp-drive space travel in hitherto insurmountable dimensions of space-time.
In Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, the story of monatomic mfkzt is told in detail from the earliest times to the present day, with specific reference to the importance of the biblical Ark of the Covenant. There are many mysteries associated with this enigmatic coffer--not the least of which is the manner of its original creation at Mount Horeb.
The book of Exodus explains that, when Moses destroyed the Israelites' golden calf, God issued a specific directive forbidding the manufacture of graven images which represented any living creature on Earth or in Heaven.
But then, immediately after this, God seemingly instructed the craftsman Bezaleel to construct the Ark of the Covenant, specifying (in complete contradiction of the directive) that two golden cherubs should surmount its lid.
What then (if not angels, as commonly thought) were the arcane cherubim? How did they have the power to produce the devastating Ark-light of the presence, which wreaked such havoc on the subsequent battlefields?

Through our present understanding of high-spin elements, it becomes apparent that the biblical Ark (along with similar devices in Egypt and Babylonia) was directly responsible for the scientific manufacture of the monatomic fire-stone (the shem-an-na), while also providing its own storage facility for the substance, hence the Ark's levitational and superconductive powers.
From the time of Moses, the Ark's history can be followed to the Temple of Jerusalem. There, as described in the Septuagint, King Solomon used its powers to "provide bread for the household of the King of Tyre", who in return supplied ships, horses and chariots for the Royal House of Judah.
Subsequently (despite what many have written to the contrary), the Ark can be tracked for another 2,000 years to its astonishing role in the history of the Knights Templars in Europe.
Its last historical record comes from the early 14th century and, from this, its final resting place is determined ... a resting place which could never have been understood until this present era of quantum physics and the superconductor research of high-spin monatomic elements.

2020.02.16 20:59 Venus230 The Elite Has Been Pushing Population Control For Decades. Now That It Is Working (In The West) The New Mantra Is We Must Import People From The 3rd World To Save The West!

1. Charles Darwin (his thinking is at the foundation of so many of our scientific theories today): “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state as we may hope, than the Caucasian and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.”
2. Bill Gates: “The problem is that the population is growing the fastest where people are less able to deal with it. So it’s in the very poorest places that you’re going to have a tripling in population by 2050. (…) And we’ve got to make sure that we help out with the tools now so that they don’t have an impossible situation later.”
3. UK Television Presenter Sir David Attenborough: “The human population can no longer be allowed to grow in the same old uncontrolled way. If we do not take charge of our population size, then nature will do it for us.”
4. Paul Ehrlich, a former science adviser to president George W. Bush and the author of “The Population Bomb”: “Solving the population problem is not going to solve the problems of racism… of sexism… of religious intolerance… of war… of gross economic inequality. But if you don’t solve the population problem, you’re not going to solve any of those problems. Whatever problem you’re interested in, you’re not going to solve it unless you also solve the population problem.”
5. Dave Foreman, the co-founder of Earth First: “We humans have become a disease, the Humanpox.”
6. CNN Founder Ted Turner: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
7. Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso: about medical patients with serious illnesses: “You cannot sleep well when you think it’s all paid by the government. This won’t be solved unless you let them hurry up and die.”
8. David Rockefeller: “The negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.”
9. Richard Branson: “The truth is this: the Earth cannot provide enough food and fresh water for 10 billion people, never mind homes, never mind roads, hospitals and schools.” (But Sweden Can!!!!!)
10. Environmental activist Roger Martin: “On a finite planet, the optimum population providing the best quality of life for all, is clearly much smaller than the maximum, permitting bare survival. The more we are, the less for each; fewer people mean better lives.”
13. HBO personality Bill Maher: “I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving – that’s what I’m for. It’s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”
14. Al Gore: “One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principal ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women. You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children to have, the spacing of the children… You have to educate girls and empower women. And that’s the most powerful leveraging factor, and when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices.”
15. MIT professor Penny Chisholm: “The real trick is, in terms of trying to level off at someplace lower than that 9 billion, is to get the birthrates in the developing countries to drop as fast as we can. And that will determine the level at which humans will level off on earth.”
16. Julia Whitty, a columnist for Mother Jones: “The only known solution to ecological overshoot is to decelerate our population growth faster than it’s decelerating now and eventually reverse it—at the same time we slow and eventually reverse the rate at which we consume the planet’s resources. Success in these twin endeavors will crack our most pressing global issues: climate change, food scarcity, water supplies, immigration, health care, biodiversity loss, even war. On one front, we’ve already made unprecedented strides, reducing global fertility from an average 4.92 children per woman in 1950 to 2.56 today—an accomplishment of trial and sometimes brutally coercive error, but also a result of one woman at a time making her individual choices. The speed of this childbearing revolution, swimming hard against biological programming, rates as perhaps our greatest collective feat to date.”
17. Colorado State University Professor Philip Cafaro in a paper entitled “Climate Ethics and Population Policy”: “Ending human population growth is almost certainly a necessary (but not sufficient) condition for preventing catastrophic global climate change. Indeed, significantly reducing current human numbers may be necessary in order to do so.
18. Professor of Biology at the University of Texas at Austin Eric R. Pianka: “I have two grandchildren and I want them to inherit a stable Earth. But I fear for them. Humans have overpopulated the Earth and in the process have created an ideal nutritional substrate on which bacteria and viruses (microbes) will grow and prosper. We are behaving like bacteria growing on an agar plate, flourishing until natural limits are reached or until another microbe colonizes and takes over, using them as their resource. In addition to our extremely high population density, we are social and mobile, exactly the conditions that favor growth and spread of pathogenic (disease-causing) microbes. I believe it is only a matter of time until microbes once again assert control over our population, since we are unwilling to control it ourselves. This idea has been espoused by ecologists for at least four decades and is nothing new. People just don’t want to hear it.”
19. Kofi Annan, UN Secretary-General from 1997-2006: “The idea that population growth guarantees a better life — financially or otherwise — is a myth that only those who sell nappies, prams and the like have any right to believe.”
20. Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, UN Under-Secretary-General from 2000-2010: “We cannot confront the massive challenges of poverty, hunger, disease and environmental destruction unless we address issues of population and reproductive health.”
21. Bill Nye: “In 1750, there were about a billion humans in the world. Now, there are well over seven billion people in the world. It more than doubled in my lifetime. So all these people trying to live the way we live in the developed world is filling the atmosphere with a great deal more carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases than existed a couple of centuries ago. It’s the speed at which it is changing that is going to be troublesome for so many large populations of humans around the world.”
22. Actress Cameron Diaz: “I think women are afraid to say that they don’t want children because they’re going to get shunned. But I think that’s changing too now. I have more girlfriends who don’t have kids than those that do. And, honestly? We don’t need any more kids. We have plenty of people on this planet.”
23. Democrat strategist Steven Rattner: “WE need death panels. Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”
24. Matthew Yglesias, a business and economics correspondent for Slate, in an article entitled “The Case for Death Panels, in One Chart”: “But not only is this health care spending on the elderly the key issue in the federal budget, our disproportionate allocation of health care dollars to old people surely accounts for the remarkable lack of apparent cost effectiveness of the American health care system. When the patient is already over 80, the simple fact of the matter is that no amount of treatment is going to work miracles in terms of life expectancy or quality of life.”
25. Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger: “All of our problems are the result of overbreeding among the working class”
26. Gloria Steinem: “Everybody with a womb doesn’t have to have a child any more than everybody with vocal chords has to be an opera singer.”
27. Jane Goodall: “It’s our population growth that underlies just about every single one of the problems that we’ve inflicted on the planet. If there were just a few of us, then the nasty things we do wouldn’t really matter and Mother Nature would take care of it — but there are so many of us.”
28. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
29. Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger: “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
30. Salon columnist Mary Elizabeth Williams in an article entitled “So What If Abortion Ends Life?”: “All life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides.”
31. Paul Ehrlich: “Basically, then, there are only two kinds of solutions to the population problem. One is a ‘birth rate solution,’ in which we find ways to lower the birth rate. The other is a ‘death rate solution,’ in which ways to raise the death rate — war, famine, pestilence — find us.”
32. Alberto Giubilini of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and Francesca Minerva of the University of Melbourne in a paper published in the Journal of Medical Ethics: “[W]hen circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … [W]e propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.”
33. Nina Fedoroff, a key adviser to Hillary Clinton: “We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can’t support many more people.”

34. Barack Obama’s primary science adviser, John Holdren: “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.”
35. Another quote from John Holdren: “If population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.”
36. David Brower, the first Executive Director of the Sierra Club: “Childbearing [should be] a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license … All potential parents [should be] required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”
37. Maurice Strong: “Either we reduce the world’s population voluntarily or nature will do this for us, but brutally.”
38. Thomas Ferguson, former official in the U.S. State Department Office of Population Affairs: “There is a single theme behind all our work–we must reduce population levels. Either governments do it our way, through nice clean methods, or they will get the kinds of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it…”
39. Mikhail Gorbachev: “We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”
40. Jacques Costeau: “In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it.”
41. Finnish environmentalist Pentti Linkola: “If there were a button I could press, I would sacrifice myself without hesitating if it meant millions of people would die”
42. Author Dan Brown: “Overpopulation is an issue so profound that all of us need to ask what should be done.”
43. Prince Phillip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II and co-founder of the World Wildlife Fund: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.”
44. Ashley Judd: “It’s unconscionable to breed, with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries.”
45. Charles Darwin: “With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilised men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilised societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.”
