The real Nazis in America.

CoUNKpFWcAA343v

SJW everywhere are depicting Donald Trump as the Antichrist. It’s no wonder that most of them are entitled Millennials who think that Socialism is a good idea – who wouldn’t want free shit right? But most of us – normal hard working people don’t feel right when we get something, that we don’t think we have earned. What happened to hard work, discipline and dedication? When I was a kid those were the values that my parents shared. Today all these nurtured and professionally raised spoiled toddlers are a disgrace to the their grandfathers who built this country and made America THE GREATEST NATION in the world.

Make no mistake, the west is the BEST. In most of the other parts of the world (except western Europe) these entitled brats would have been made a mockery out of and no one would have taken them seriously. The ideas that they are preaching and trying to physically impose on people (and they call us Nazzis?!) have already proven not to work in the real world – where the grown ups live. It’s no wonder that these people hate successful entrepreneurs. After all almost all are supporters of Bernie Sanders who’s whole narrative was “rich people are bad, poor people are good”. That’s the level of arguments that these people can produce. They are literally toddlers, who are in their twenties.

No wonder that none of them can form any real arguments – with facts aka grown up talk. No wonder that to them Trump is a monster because he is a rich white male, while Hilary is a hero because she is a woman. That’s how dumb they are. There is no gray area for them, it’s either BAD or GOOD. And we only have their parents to blame. All the feminists, fake liberals of the 1990ies that after all were responsible for raising these dummies. Does the country have some major issues we have to address? Yes of course, we have already mentioned those: the crumbling infrastructurethe next financial meltdownwar in Syriapotential war with North Koreathe seemingly endless war in Afghanistanthe ever growing influence of the military industrial complex. All real issues that our future depends on, but racism in 21st century? Really, this is the best you got? I am not impressed. Does Donald Trump have some major issues worth addressing? Of course. Do they include that he is a misogynistic white male? Of course, not. Grow up, mommy will not always be there to hold your hand, get a grip.

 

Does it really matter who the president is?

Four_Presidents

Couple of  months ago was election time in the US and everyone had to choose the team they would support. I’ve always found elections in general really interesting. How people, friends, family members just choose sides and could argue for hours which side is best. What if there is no best side? I followed the elections very closely and I found it fascinating how much of a popularity contest the whole elections and political process really is.

We, as people are generally not interested in certain policies, simply in the persona of the candidate. Donald Trump presented himself as not a part of the establishment – an outsider. This certainly won him a lot of supporters, that were fed up with the current system, that has done nothing for them. For most people it’s almost impossible to find any real differences between democrats and republicans. They all make deals behind closed doors, while we argue which side is best. When they are giving interviews on politically correct mainstream media shows, they pretend to be against each other, but in truth they serve the same masters.

How much does it cost to get in office?

Running a political campaign ain’t an easy thing, nor cheap. You gotta have a lot of sponsors and influential people behind you if you want to win. Do you really think that all those people won’t come for favours when a certain candidate wins an election?

In the last 18 years big companies have spent in total over $6,000,000,000 dollars in lobbying fees. Over $6,000,000,000 have entered the pockets of our “representative”. But the question is who do they really represent? Because it is certainly not us – the people. It is mostly big business corporations and certain influential groups.

The message I want to send is not one of apathy – the apathy comes from the politicians. They don’t care about us, they only care about their own interest. This is not a free market system. The bigger government you have, the bigger the corruption. We should not let ourselves be fooled by populists and liars that only want more for themselves and less for everybody else. And this is all in front of us – we just have to read the data.

The average American believes that the richest fifth own 59% of the wealth and the bottom 40% own 9%. The reality is strikingly different. The top 20% of US households own more than 84% of the wealth, and the bottom 40% combine for a paltry of 0,3%. The Economic Inequality is far worse than we think. Unless we do something now, it will only get worse from here and I don’t believe that the current system that we have in place is capable of dealing with this problem. It is only us – the people that can really make a difference.

America’s crumbling infrastructure

20170217_infra

On Tuesday it was reported that Hanford Nuclear Reservation tunnel collapsed, which triggered all alerts. Thousands of workers were warned to take cover as the collapse began. The tunnel was full of contaminated particles, as it was previously used for building nuclear weapons.  This is only the most recent accident with crumbling infrastructure in the U.S. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave our infrastructure a D+ grade. We are not even C students now… They have estimated that the problems with our infrastructure is costing U.S. tax payer around $3,8 trillion every year.

What happened?

Every 4th bridge is in dire condition and in need of repairs. Every year approximately 15,000 people die, because of the poor state of the highways. Most of you like me are probably wondering how we ended up here? Well, it really simple – not enough money are going to infrastructure. In 2017 Congress decided to delegate $300 billion to rebuilding our infrastructure, which many believe is not enough. In comparison the U.S. military budget is double that – $600 billion. The military industrial complex tentacles are all over our government as they have long gone bought all of the politicians. Over 30% of the country is on social welfare – highest number ever in U.S. history… The intelligence agencies budget is close to $500 billion and as we now know thanks to whistleblowers like Edward Snowden it’s mostly used to spy on hard working American people – not Islamic terrorists. This is what the government of former president Obama brought to the U.S. – socialism in it’s worse form…

Is Obama the worst president in the US history?

Obama-grinning-56a9a7683df78cf772a9409a

Obama left the White House the same way he got into it – lying to his teeth. He came with a promise of change, but all he offered was the Status Quo. He came into office in a time, when the country was in ashes and he didn’t leave it in a better place.

After 8 years of being in office he expressed how happy he was that he would leave this administration without a major scandal. But is this really the case?

In the beginning of his campaign he opposed the Patriot Act, which made spying on American citizens legal. However, after he entered the White House he increased NSA’s budget and under his leadership the organisation created dozens of new programs to spy on people. It was all exposed by whistleblowers like Edward Snowden. The increase in the capabilities of the NSA were of course accepted in the name of fighting terrorism. That’s what all dictators do. They hide behind fear tactics.

Moreover this is the slowest recovery from a financial crisis in US history, since the Great Depression. This is mainly because Obama’s administration got the Dodd-Frank Act passed, which made getting credit for the small business owners almost impossible.

Let’s talk about former president Obama’s foreign policy, after all he is a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Yes, you heard correctly – the man that helped in the creation of ISIS is a Nobel Peace Prize winner. He bombed and destabilized 7 countries in total – Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. The former secretary of state – Hilary Clinton, who was appointed by president Obama, was caught saying in an interview for CBS about Muamar Kadafi’s death: “We came, we saw, he died”. This pretty much sums up the foreign policy of Obama.

Don’t you think it’s time to wake up from this dream already? Isn’t time to stop believing politicians, that would say and do anything just to get in office so they could spend OUR money. During Barak Obama’s presidency a whopping 35,4% of the US citizens were on welfare. That’s over 100,000,000 people. That’s the legacy of Obama – one of ashes.

Another major blow for the U.S.

It has just been announced there will be four de-escalation zones in Syria, mainly in territories controlled by the “moderate” rebels. The guarantors of the ceasefire will be Iran, Turkey and Russia. Notice who is missing?

Who is to gain the most?

RUSSIA

This is a massive win for Russia as Syrian troops can now concentrate their efforts in liberating the east of the country from ISIS. Why is this a win for Russia? Well it cements Putin’s influence in the region and after Gazprom (Russia’s biggest oil company) signed a contract to control of the oil in the country (estimated to produce over 400,000 barrels a day) after the Syrian army liberates the east of the country they could start extracting the oil. Russian government deficits have been growing thanks to the cheap oil and low production. Now that can change as they practically take over Syrian oil and gas.

SYRIA

By Syria I mean the legitimate government of the country. If they manage to drive ISIS out of the country they would have practically won the war. Over 80% of the population is under Bashar Assad rule that means that he is collecting all of the tax money. After they liberate the oil and gas rich and around the banks of the Euphrates River – where the other largest part of the population lives the rebels would be left with almost nothing. The ceasefire is set to be in place for 6 months – enough of a time to liberate most of the central and eastern parts of the country as troops will be freed up from the western fronts and with all of the aviation help of Russia it seems reasonable.

IRAN and HEZBOLLAH

Obviously every win for the Syrian government is also a win for Iran. The Islamic Republic grip will be even stronger now as many of the militias fighting in Syria are Shiite. This of course is a massive loss for Israel as they have been fighting Hezbollah for years now and it sure seems like this won’t be the last war in the Middle East. When the war ends they will go to reap the benefits of being the victor in a war, have no doubt about that.

TURKEY

Turkey has been supporting the rebels since day one – providing them with ammunition and sophisticated weaponry. That’s not a cheap thing to do especially now when the country is on the brink of economic collapse. So they could now reallocate these resources in their fight against the Kurds.

The Syrian people

By far the biggest winners are the Syrian people as they have suffered the consequences of war for over 6 years now. The sooner this bloody war comes to an end the better for them.

Who are the biggest losers?

Well that’s pretty easy to answer – America. The Russian MOD has already come out with an announcement that U.S. planes won’t be able to fly freely over Syria anymore. Admittedly, they have said this in the past, as well and have not followed their threats through. However, this time this is supported by Turkey – a close ally to the U.S. Iran’s growing influence in Syria is not good news neither, as they are deemed the biggest threat to the Western world by the U.S. The fact that the U.S. wasn’t even invited to the talks in Astana says it all – the U.S. influence in the Middle East is slowly but surely coming to an end.

Who is taking over the Middle East?

 

Oil-drilling

Middle Eastern counties possess 47% of the world’s proven oil reserves. For Saudi Arabia the oil industry accounts for 87% of budget revenues. And the picture is almost the same with other Middle Eastern countries. So it’s not really a surprise that whoever controls the oil will effectively control the Middle East. However Saudis are beginning to lose market share and since 2015 they’ve experienced huge deficits. This has only increased the issue of debt and the Kingdom had to draw from reserves. This is very bad timing for the country, as Saudi Arabia biggest oil company – Aramco is preparing for an IPO next year. They are slowly losing market share to Iran and Iraq.

96294.o

How is the market changing?

U.S. companies like Exxon Mobil have been the dominant players on the ground for many years, but that is starting to change now. Since Russia entered the geopolitical clusterfuck around Iraq and Syria, Gazprom (Russia’s biggest oil and gas company) signed a deal to monopolize the whole Syrian oil industry, which is estimated to produce over 400,000 barrels a day. Shortly after that the SAA (Syrian Arab Army) with the huge help of the Russian Airforce and Russian Special Forces on the ground started liberating all the gas and oil fields around Palmyra.

This comes only after months of negotiation between Gazprom and the Syrian government, which only goes to show you that there is no free lunch in this world – especially when it comes to the Russians. Moreover, this is one more win for the Russian’s in Syria – they seem to be the biggest beneficiaries of the war.

Who is the biggest winner from the war in Syria?

With only a handful of planes they managed to revive the Assad regime, take over the oil industry and cement there foreign gun export industry in the region. Do you think that they are giving all these tanks, rockets, air defense system and ammunition for free? When we draw the line and this bloody conflict is finally over, it would seem that Russia’s profits from the war would have skyrocketed after their involvement in 2015.

Russian companies are also cooperating with Kurds on the ground and are exploring this option as well – as Iraqi Kurdistan oil industry is estimated that it can produce over 600,000 barrels a day.

So will there be a new hegemon in the Middle East?

In a word – NO. United States arch enemy – Iran has also taken over Iraq. This is bad news for the U.S., that’s why we have seen a shift in the U.S.’s policy recently. They have changed their support from Iraq’s central government to the Kurds in the north and east parts of the country. After all, they control 50% of the oil in the country and have been very effective on the ground against ISIS. The U.S. is also still a close Ally to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE, so to say that the U.S. is losing its grip on the whole situation is over exaggerated. However, there’re emerging new players on the ground that currently are controlling a small portion of the market, but are growing ever faster and there is certainly a trend to be noticed here.

Syria before the War

Full of ancient Mosques, Roman ruins, castles built during the Crusades and souks, Syria has been the cradle of civilisation for at least 10,000 years.

main_1200

It has been part of the major empires of history – Egyptian, Persian and Roman. This is one of the most beautiful countries in the Middle East.

isis-plants-mines-and-bombs-amid-roman-era-ruins-in-syrias-palmyra

 

Syria population was 22 million with majority being Sunni Muslim, but the country is quite diverse – with large minorities of Alawite Muslim, Druze, Orthodox Christians, Shiite Muslims, Kurds in the north, and small Jewish enclaves in the large Syrian cities. All these different ethnicities have been living together for centuries now in peace. Mixed marriages between Orthodox Christians and Sunni Muslims are not uncommon.

Daily Life In Syria

In a cultural sense Syria is probably the most important country in the Middle East – captivating almost 10,000 years of history and dozens of great civilizations. Syria also boasts with one of the oldest and most sophisticated literary traditions in the world, with rich tradition in storytelling that dates back thousands of years.

_83002752_478680659

Syrian economy – as it’s people is quite diverse – the most important sectors including agriculture, industry and excavation, retail and tourism.

main_1200 (9)

In 2012 the GDP of the country was at a record high level – over $72 billion dollars, which for a population of just 22 million is quite an achievement. It went a long way since a record low in 1960 – just $400 million dollars.

Syria has a vibrant, bustling marketplaces in the old cities of Damascus and Aleppo.

The IT industry was also booming, despite sanctions by the west. However, the real beauty of Syria is in spies, jewellery, cloth, traditional handcrafts and a variety of foods. Especially the sweet industry of Syria. Delicious desert play almost legendary role in Syrian folklore – central at weddings, parties and other festivities.

1004-DSWEETS-DISPATCHES-SYRIA-PASTRY-RAMADAN

Sounds hard to believe? I know, right. Especially now when the country is in ruins. This was all true before 2012. After that Jihadist and other Islamist groups infiltrated the country, sponsored by Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, with the help of the U.S. of course.

main_1200 (13)

It all started in 2011 when peaceful protesters were arrested by the regime forces. It has been long thought that President Assad has spied on his people – it’s only ok if the U.S. does it. He personally has expressed his worries that the country will be infiltrated by Jihadist, sent from neighbouring Arab states.

main_1200 (14)

Well, surprise, surprise that’s what happened after the protest movement started. I’m not saying that the CIA and Saudi Arabia started the protests themselves – that would be very hard to organize and won’t go unnoticed.

main_1200 (15)

However, it is almost certain that they helped jihadists infiltrate the movement to radicalize it – with intelligence, weapon and armour support.

is_2

Once a political and military giant in the region (probably the only reason it is still a country) Syria has been taken over by Jihadist, supported by Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia on the one side and Russia, Iran and Hezbollah on the other. There are no winners from this war, however there are clear losers – the Syrian people, who used to live in one of the most secular and modern, peaceful countries in the Middle East.

There is no such notion as The UNITED States Of America

vintage-american-flag-yfmoxzct

Currently there are 50 states that are in the Union. So, I have always found it interesting how people generalize when they talk about the “United” States of America. Yes, there is a federal government that imposes a lot of control over the states, but how different are states from one another?

The 10th amendment states (no pun intendent): “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” So obviously the founding fathers new how important state independence is.

Let’s examine how different are all the states from one another really. Well, let’s start with the most obvious thing first: what kind of people live in different states? Well, you would be surprised. After a quick look at the map we can see just how diverse the U.S. in terms of ethnicity is. The north east side of the coast is dominated by people from English, Irish, Italian and French decent. The south east coast is dominated by people from German, African American and American decent. The whole upper part of the Mid West is dominated by people from German decent.

article-2408591-1B95A350000005DC-125_964x720

By far the largest ancestral group stretching from coast to coast are Germans – over 49,000,000 people. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Nebraska, South and North Dakota, Minnesota, Wyoming, Montana, Kansas, Colorado and Oregon are almost all dominated by people with Germanic roots. 14 states are dominated by people with whom the U.S. had two of its bloodiest wars.

Black or African Americans are the next group with 41,000,000 people. Predominantly living in the south of the nation, where they were brought to work on cotton plantation as slaves in the late 18th century. African Americans gained the right to vote by the power of the 15th amendment in 1870, but still struggled after that with their civil rights.

Other groups include people with Iris heritage – 35,000,000; with Mexican ancestral roots – 31,000,000 mostly living in cities as Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas and San Antonio.; The next largest grouping of people are those who claim to be English-American – 26,000,000 people. Notable people with English ancestry are Orson Welles and Bill Gates. The most interesting group of people I found are people who claim to be Americans – 19,000,000. There are mostly making a political statement or are uncertain about their direct descendants. Smaller groups of people include: Italian – over 17,000,000, Polish -Just under 10,000,000 and French little over 9,000,000.

All these numbers go to show you that racially discriminating against someone, because they are not “American” is kind of pointless, as most Americans come from diverce backgrounds.

The states are very distinguishable from one another, when it comes to contribution to total GDP as well. The 3 biggest states, contributors to GDP are California ($2.424 Trillion), Texas ($1,648 Trillion) and New York ($1,444 Trillion). Unsurprisingly they are also the 3 most populated states. In the map below you can see just how productive different states are compared to other COUNTRIES.

States contribution to GDP by numbers:

United_States_GDP_by_States

States by population:

Map_of_each_state's_population_as_of_2013.svg

There are also political differences between states. A review of the four elections since 2004 shows that most south and mid-western states tend to vote Republican, while the coastal states (especially on the west coast) tend to vote Democrat.

114th_US_Congress_House

Some groups are also much more represented in the military than others. Teens and young adults from Florida, Georgia or Maine are twice as likely to join the military than their counterparts in North Dakota or Utah. The official answer from the military is that “a soldier’s demographic characteristics are of little importance in the military, which values honor, leadership, self-sacrifice, courage and integrity”. Still, the army seems to recruit people that live in states, where there are larger number of Naval, Marine, army or Air force bases – that seems to be the case with Florida and Georgia.

enlisted personnel division map

When it comes to gun culture there is a massive difference as well. The variations you can see on the map below are due to firearm laws, cultural and social norms. Unsurprisingly the most liberal states when it comes to guns are those with high percentage of gun owners. In those states people tend to believe that the second amendment was put there for a reason and that no federal government could have a say in that. The states that oppose the second amendment are California and those on the north-east coast.

guncontrol

There hasve always been rivalries between different states as well. With all the Americans I have talked, when I ask the question “Where are you from?” very few say the U.S. Most of them just say the state or the city they are from. I found this very interesting. There is an inherent pride in being from a certain state. Every state has its different heritage and traditions. People from different states have different accents. So how come when Europeans speak about the U.S. they never really specify witch state they are talking about.

This just goes to show that America as a whole entity doesn’t really exist. There are deep political, cultural, ethnical and financial differences between most of the states.

This is just PART 1 from my examing of the U.S. and different states. In the next days to come I will publish PART 2. 

The Day Care Generation

maxresdefault

“The Fascists of the future will be the anti-fascists”

This is a famous quote from Winston Churchill that certainly rings more true today, than any other time in history. We see SJW (Social Justice Warriors) calling everyone with a different opinion from theirs a fascist now. Most of them grew up in the 1990s, a time when the feminists of that era assured everyone that day care is a smart idea. Well, now it’s obvious that nothing can replace a mother presence in a child’s life.

Many people from this generation are addicted to being treated like they are special. That’s why there are numerous videos of Millennials throwing tantrums when someone questions their beliefs. They are obsessed in grabbing the attention they were denied by their parents, who sent them to day care.

This is what being overprotective of your children gets you. They become thin skinned and not capable of dealing with tense situation. The first controversy they encounter, they start crying for their mommy. They have never been taught how to debate and formulate an argument. Of course, people first blame the education system, but It’s really the parents who are to blame. A child is the product of their parenting. If you spoil your children too much, there is a very real possibility that you will cripple them. There is nothing wrong in letting your children make mistakes. That’s how they learn and grow.

Of course I am generalising here. There are a lot of Millennials that are capable of taking care of themselves. However, there is a massive trend with 1990s generation of kids (now young adults) to behave in a manner, not suited for their age. Millennials in the West grew up in the best, easiest times to be alive. Western civilization had reached its peak and logically there were no real struggles. Now, all grown up, they want to have a cause to fight for. Moreover, they need an enemy, an oppressor. Well, sorry to disappoint you, Millennials, but there’s no one out to get you, except probably the people you are presumably fighting on the behalf of.

My main message is this – raise your kids right, don’t be overprotective, do society a favour and let them absorb their surroundings.

 

Why we should always remember Communism

Obama-Socialists-Spreading-The-Wealth-Since-1917-closeup-Liberty-Maniacs

I personally have never lived during communist rule in my home country of Bulgaria, however my father was 20 years old when the communism system finally failed and the regime was taken down. This was in 1989 almost 30 years ago. Most of the Bulgarians from my father’s generation absolutely hate communism. The only people that talk fondly of the system are considered losers and degenerates.

That’s why I find it astonishing how millennials from Western Europe and the U.S. consider communism to be an alternative to capitalism. The idea of Karl Marx of a strong country with an authoritarian leader, who will resign after the system has been put in place, has remained this- only an idea, an illusion. Communism has always brought with itself dictatorship and misery – never prosperity.

In the early 1920s no one really looked at communism seriously. A system that would make everyone equal? In the end it did just that – it made everyone equally poor. Through populism the communist leaders of the world caught the wave of discontent of the people. If we don’t learn from our mistakes, there will never be progress. The noble idea of equality lead to exactly the opposite – massive social inequality. The members of the ruling party controlled all the wealth, while the poor had to make do with what was left, which often was very little. Using their propaganda machine, the elite maintain the masses happy, telling them how fortunate they were that they didn’t share the values of the evil West. There was no free speech either. You think the NSA is spying on you now? You have no idea. If you said the wrong thing about the party you were quickly sentenced as a traitor and sent to a concentration camp.

As an economic system communism has failed as well. Almost every communist country went bankrupt. Except maybe for China, but that is only the case because of the massive changes that China implemented. In the beginning the Soviet Union relied on contributions from the West to rebuild its broken economy. In the 1920s the USSR was an agricultural country. With the U.S.’s help, however it became a modern industrialized country. Nevertheless, they still managed to fuck up their economy and in the 1990’s the USSR became a failed state.

Stalin, the most famous of the USSR’s leaders is responsible for more than 25,000,000 people. Forced collectivisation moved millions of people from the countryside to the cities. This move alone caused massive famine in which at least five million Ukrainians died. He also sentenced 750,000 member of the military or the Communist Party to death, simply because he thought they might oppose him. In my home country of Bulgaria with a population of just over 5 million back in 1945, the Communist Party sentenced almost 2730 people to death, because they had different views. In the Nurnberg trials for comparison were sentenced only 19. Almost every business owner lost his equity – in favor of the new Communist regime.

One of the Millennials biggest argument is that this wasn’t really communism and it deserves another shot. Well a quick google search shows that 45 countries declared themselves to be socialist states under the Marxist-Leninist or Maoist definition – that is to say, “Communist states” – between 1979 and 1983. This period marked the greatest territorial extent of Communist states. Of these 45 countries only 4 remain communist – China (the system has since evolved massively and private enterprises draw 50% of the economy), Laos (which in 2011 was declared by the Obama administration as a “no longer Marxist-Leninist state), Vietnam and Cuba (where they still drive cars from the 1950s). This fraudulent system already had its chance, it’s time to move on now, Millennials.

The only thing that communism has to offer is dreams, that if followed or fallen for quickly turn into nightmares.
