The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Silicon Valley is expecting government to take care of unemployed as they replace millions of workers with robots

Technology, automation, and the elimination of jobs is nothing new, and has been around since the beginning of time.  However today the world is suddenly coming upon a threshold in which there are few natural horizons through which workers who lose their jobs to innovation can have something they can transition into.

Ie... when the automobile replaced the horse and buggy at the beginning of the 20th century, workers in that industry could retrain themselves to labor on the assembly lines of the new one.

But there are very few 'new industries' being created, with most of the automation being simply about replacing workers to do the same jobs that are currently available.  Drivers are being replaced by automated cars, fast food workers are being replaced with order kiosks and robot cooks, and 3-D printers are just now beginning to replace construction workers in the building of homes.

In fact, it is being estimated that by 2035, up to 75% of all current jobs could and will be replaced by robots or some other form of automation.  And without some completely new innovation that would require the use of human labor and intellect beyond what a robot could do itself, how will hundreds of millions if not billions of people sustain themselves without a viable means to earn a living?

Since Silicon Valley is one of the primary drivers behind this rush into automation, corporations like Alphabet (Google), Apple, and Tesla give little thought as to the plight of the average American, instead pushing for replacing these workers with cheaper foreign labor until robots, AI, and other technologies can eliminate them altogether.  And as a result there will one day soon be hundreds of millions of angry and restless workers with nothing to do, little purpose, and plenty of time to build up the momentum for civil unrest the likes of that no government has ever seen.

But of course the brains at these multi-national corporations have a solution to this problem... and it involves the government simply adding everyone to the welfare teat at a time when their coffers are completely insolvent.

Silicon Valley will be watching closely. As job loss due to automation becomes more of a foregone conclusion, pressure is likely to build on the tech industry to help usher in policies that will address it. 
Elon Musk, who promised that all of Tesla's new vehicles will be capable of driving fully autonomously sometime this year, admitted recently that he thinks universal basic income will be necessary. Eliminating driving roles alone would wipe out 2 million jobs in the U.S., increasing unemployment by 6 percent. - INC
The saddest part for the average American is that most are ill prepared to do anything but accept a decline to their standard of living, and to suffer through the ultimate shame of being on the public dole for the rest of their lives.  The U.S. education system, which 40 years ago was in the top 5 in the industrialized world, is now languishing in the bottom 30 as many high school as well as college graduates can't function beyond an 8th grade level.  And as the future of jobs and entrepreneurialship moves onto the internet and away from the factory floor, few will have the skills or talents to seize upon these opportunities to try to build a life through the necessary paradigm shift which is in the creation of multiple streams of income.

For the most part, human labor has always been considered cheap and disposable, and those in power and who have reached the pinnacle of success rarely consider the plight of those who struggle to simply survive and wrest a decent living during their productive years.  And whether it is in the slaves and citizens forced to build the Egyptian pyramids or Great Wall of China, or those who were treated as criminals by the Rockefellers when they didn't work hard enough in the coal mines of Appalachia during the latter part of the 19th century, the destruction of the working class in favor of automation will only result in the destruction of a society no matter how much free money or 'basic incomes' a government deems to provide them.

European Union proving once again that it is both fascist and anti-free trade

As more and more time goes by, it appears that Britain is by far the smartest nation within the Euro sphere as the un-elected Brussels government ruling the European Union shows its stripes once again through their policies to stifle free trade on the continent.

The European Union started out so many decades ago as a way for nations, and primarily businesses on the European continent, to engage in beneficial trade in the aftermath of World War II.  However, as with any alliance that grows to involve multiple countries, the trade union morphed into a draconian political union, which today has evolved into a fascist anti-free trade coalition that penalizes achievers, and props up companies that cannot compete on their own merits.

competition
Brussels launched another volley of competition complaints against Google on Thursday, marking the latest gambit in a protracted antitrust saga. 
Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s competition enforcer, issued two extra sets of charges against the US group, alleging that it abused its search clout to muscle out smaller rivals in online advertising and shopping comparison markets. 
However, rather than significantly broadening the regulatory assault against Google, the moves largely consolidate the European Commission’s position as it edges towards infringement decisions and possible fines. These would only come to pass in 2017 at the earliest — some eight years after the first complaint against Google was filed. 
Competition investigators generally wish to avoid additional charge sheets, which indicate their legal case is trickier than first expected. But the concession does not mean the investigation is dead — Ms Vestager stressed such follow-up charges were issued in Brussels’ successful cases against Microsoft and Intel. 
Indeed, her decision signals that she is raising her stakes and is likely to see the matter through to a decision and possible fine — rather than opting for a settlement — according to legal analysts. - Mish Talk
The European Commission has a long history of restricting, fining, or forcing companies not from Europe to pay outrageous prices if their products or services wind up being better than European equivalents.  This decade, the target of EC focus has been Google, but last decade the EC went out of their way to slam Microsoft because their own European software and OS companies couldn't compete with the world's top technology company.

And interestingly enough, the primary reason why European companies and startups can't compete with U.S. and Chinese equivalents?  You guessed it... that same EC bureaucracy.
“Europe is stuffed to the gills with talented people with plenty of ability and ideas.  Let down by lack of enlightened investment, painful (near corrupt) board level management and government that hasn’t changed since the 60s.  Where are the exits for high tech in Europe? No exits = no investments.” 
“Yes indeed Europe’s biggest enemy is its own unprecedented bureaucracy whose sole purpose it is to keep the status quo in the respective membership countries uniquely isolated from the other membership states and collectively the world. There exists a common platform with common laws, rules and regulations, but largely to keep others out, rather than focus to compete on the international front, both for individuals, companies and institutions! I am a Dutchman (proudly) but unfortunately living in a world where the politicians have branded everybody that earns more than them a ‘graaier’, greedy! A most unfortunate attitude, because these are the same people that draft the laws, rules and regulations! Respect for creativity, entrepreneurship, individualism, success  are alien concepts to the European bureaucratic machinery.” - AIE
If you want to know why a predominantly 'Communist' country like China is rising to become the world's most powerful economy and financial system, it is because in both Europe and the United States, the incentive to achieve has been almost completely removed due to political ideologues and political correctness.  And what we have in the West today is the merging of a few corporations with the State to create a fascist form of government that by its very nature stifles innovation and competition, and leads only to collapse.

America’s economic decline: 23% of all 23-54 year old workers unemployed

Imagine a family farm, which is run by two older patriarchs and the families of their offspring.  Now picture that the total amount of potential workers living on that farm is 6 out of a total of 10 people living there, with two being the elder parents, four being their two children and their wives, and the other four being grandchildren too young to account for much in labor.
Now imagine that one of the four adult children is unable to be employed because the patriarchs can’t afford to pay for their labor.  And added to this is the fact that the two ultimate parents have limited capacity to work and are available only part time.
This is a microcosm of the American labor system today.  And this example is validated by a new report out that shows that nearly one fourth (23%) of all able bodies Americans between the ages of 23-54 are unemployed, and offering little in the way of production for the overall U.S. economy during the prime capacity of their working lives.
