Electrical Engineer Pens Excellent Piece on Smart Meters

There is not much you need to say when someone has done it so well. We can only hope more people like him (IBEW we’re looking in your direction) will step up and do what is right by protecting everyone from these meters. 

Huge fan of the plain english style this was done with all the proper technical information without being way to techie on purpose just to sound smart.  Simply put, the guy nails it!

Special thanks to Michigan Stop Smart Meters for getting this out. Note to all of you in BC we use the same Itron meters noted in the article in BC.

This is a definite must read:

The Meter Itself is the “Hazardous Condition”

By William Bathgate, Electrical Engineer
October 12th, 2016
Revised October 13th, 2016

Editor’s Note: In the following article, originally written as a public comment to the Michigan Public Service Commission, Mr. Bathgate considers safety issues with the new electric meters as related to our current discussion of a proposed rule change concerning emergency shutoffs for “hazardous conditions.”

 A utility may shut off or deny service to a customer “without notice, if a condition on the customer’s premises is determined by the utility or a governmental agency to be hazardous.”

I hold an electrical engineering and mechanical engineering degree and previously was employed through late 2015 for 8 years at the Emerson Electric Company. While at Emerson Electric I was the Senior Program Manager for Power Distribution Systems and in charge of an RF and IP based digitally controlled high power AC power switching system product line in use in over 100 countries and I was also directly responsible for product certifications such as UL, CE and many other countries electrical certification bodies. I am very familiar with the electrical and electronic design of the AMI meters in use because I was responsible for very similar products with over 1 Million units installed across the world.

I have just reviewed the transcripts of the hearing held in Lansing on this subject and came to realize there were many comments regarding the issues identified from the effects of both the RF emitting AMI meter and the non RF emitting AMI Opt-Out Meter. I have personally tested the RF emissions from the AMI meter and measured that the meter does not send data just a few times a day as the utilities publish. It actually sends an RF pulse about every 4-5 seconds constantly and a longer duration RF emission after midnight running about 3-5 minutes. There is no need for the AMI meter to send a pulse every 4-5 seconds all day just to synchronize and time stamp the clock inside the meter, the meter only needs to send data once a day for 3-5 minutes. All these pulse transmissions the AMI meter is doing is a complete waste of energy and because it is a short but frequently pulsing signal that is not needed to measure power consumption, it is creating needless health effects and is impacting consumers as evidenced in the testimony. Some consumers have been affected to the point of near death experiences. The Mesh Network design is saturating the environment with RF transmissions mostly for the purpose of the network synchronization not the consumption measurement of power. I could not think of a worse network design for a power measurement device.

After reading the transcripts of the hearing I noticed quite a few comments from people affected to a terrible effect by the RF based AMI meter, and interestingly also the RF turned off Opt-Out Meter. It begs the question why do people also seem affected by the Opt-Out meter? Well I went out and purchased an ITRON

Open Way meter identical to the meter being deployed by DTE. I took the unit apart to examine the circuit design of the three boards inside the meter. Generally the boards seem well made with several important elements lacking or missing.

The switching mode power supply circuit is lacking effective Ground References, Lightning Protection and “Common Mode” EMI filters. The circuit boards are lacking a direct local connection to a Zero voltage potential ground at the meter to sink (ground) the current and voltage oscillations of the circuit boards.

Ground References:

Depending on the soil conditions and a solid or not solid low impedance connection ground point or surface, the ground plane reference (called a rotating return) of the circuit boards may be floating over a Zero voltage potential condition. This will create Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) via oscillation of the ground reference return paths. The use of no direct ground reference as in use today is a poor electrical practice with the AMI meter given all the environmental variables leads to a floating ground potential that could cause strong voltage and current ground potentials varying from zero to a worse case of 240 AC volts (due to a direct short). If there was a direct short of the feed wire because of a voltage surge on the input power from a power surge or lightning strike at the pole or where the two feed lines cross each other from a downed tree limb I would fully expect the circuit boards to likely explode or melt.

I have tested several homes for EMI created by the AMI meter and found that the ground environmental conditions dramatically affected the amount of EMI present. In one home I tested it had as a ground reference the copper water line feed from the city water supply. In this home there was very little EMI present as shown on my oscilloscope. In several another homes that had a standard 8 foot ground rod as the ground reference the EMI measured much, much higher. So there is a relationship of the AMI meter to the environmental reference to ground and EMI even though the circuit boards are not directly connected to a ground rod or ground reference. There was likely a magnetic coupling to earth ground taking place at the home using the water main as a ground reference. In all these homes all other lights, TV’s, PC’s, phone chargers etc. were disabled so I could avoid other variables affecting the readings. It goes to show that environmental variables can be very different from the test lab to the field environment.


First I have to say from my prior and current experience in very tall and large antenna arrays for the common house and business; lightning is very unpredictable and it is very costly to install effective lightning protection. Thankfully direct lightning strikes that are affecting the power feed and service entrance is random and less frequent. No commercial circuit board was ever designed to withstand a direct lightning strike. The US DoD has such designs but is very expensive to purchase. TV or commercial radio facilities have as much as $500,000 or more invested in lightning protection in order to stay on the air during a severe storm. All licensed amateur radio antennas are required by the FCC to have effective ground protection at the base of a tower to shunt a strike to ground. You are actually safer from lightning to be living close to a large metal antenna array because as a general rule lightning tries to reach ground via the shortest and lowest impedance electrical path. It is not uncommon to see a lightning trace zigzag across an electrical path as it seeks the lowest impedance and shortest path to zero potential ground. Note I did not mention the potential for RF exposure which is a separate issue altogether! A neighbor’s tall (over 30 Feet) metal antenna will be a shorter path to ground for lightning than your house next door.

In the AMI meter the circuit board that powers the solenoid actuator for the remote power disconnect feeding the power blade connection at the meter box is susceptible to the effects of lightning. When the low voltage DC power source on this circuit board becomes disrupted by a lightning strike and provided that the circuit boards survive the strike at all, this circuit board driven solenoid is subject to highly rapid disruption with a high frequency opening and closing of the remote disconnect contacts causing arcing and burnt contacts within the meter. This is completely undetectable by the consumer and may or may not manifest itself with flickering or dimming lights etc. The lightning may strike from two common sources; at the power pole or/and the surrounding ground area of the business or residence. The common person or business owner may not realize that the home or business ground rod reference wire runs in the middle between the two 240 volt AC power connections within the meter box and continues on to your entrance breaker panel. This is a minimal form of lightning protection because if the power pole gets hit by lightning the surge will likely jump the air gap between the two power line connections within the meter box and will shunt the lightning via the ground wire to the ground rod. Of course the meter and meter box itself may be damaged from this along with some of your internal house appliances etc. This ground connection was never meant to protect the meter box or your house internal wiring to survive a lightning strike; it is a power safety ground in case your internal house wiring or appliances have a direct short. Though not well known is that lightning can enter a building or home via your phone, DSL or Cable connections. I have learned from several catastrophic events by having my internet connections, TV’s and PC’s destroyed by a lightning strike many blocks away traveling these connections into the home. While I could not protect the DSL modem or cable modem from damage I could isolate the rest of my network with Ethernet Fiber Media converters. Once I did this I only lost the modem and nothing else downstream from it.

Analog Meters contained no electronic circuit boards and while not 100% immune from the effects of a lightning strike, they are much more tolerant than the AMI meter.    

Common Mode EMI:

A “Common Mode” filter attenuates high frequency currents. A common mode filter in this case would look like two coils wrapped around an iron or iron ferrite core either in the shape of a donut or a small cookie bar. This filter is not present in the current circuit design and if it was there the switching circuit which converts 240 Volts AC to 5-10 volts DC would be prevented from sending EMI oscillations back onto the 240 Volt AC wires entering the home.

I am very familiar with the design elements of a switched mode power supply because I had to include “Common Mode” filters into the products I was responsible for while at Emerson Electric to minimize the Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) coming from the switching integrated circuit back onto the feeding input AC circuit and the output AC circuit. A clean 50 or 60 Hz is needed and the AC input and AC output had to be void of any oscillation introduced by the switching circuit. I would not have been able to sell the same ITRON switched mode circuit design with the products I managed. I would have been fired for allowing such a condition.

If DTE (or any Utility) was to demand of ITRON, their supplier, to provide a “Common Mode” filtering circuit and tested this design for elimination of EMI and of stray capacitance present in the current design, I believe the troubles with people becoming ill from the Opt-Out AMI meter could be significantly mitigated. This should not be ignored or taken lightly. There could be a solution to help the people affected by the high frequency oscillations created by the switched mode power supply.

In short lacking a redesign of the AMI meter switched mode power supply the solution for people affected by the AMI meter program is very simple and costs nothing, allow those affected residents and business to retain an Analog meter which is readily available and meets all ANSI and other applicable standards.


The MPSC has been asked to grant the Utilities the ability to turn off power to people and businesses without notice for “Dangerous or Hazardous” conditions. Based on my professional examination of the metering technology deployed with AMI meters, the meters themselves are “Dangerous or Hazardous” due to their Lightning vulnerabilities, EMI and RF emissions. There has been a disregard for the health and safety effects of these AMI meters on the general population by the utilities and their AMI supplier. So by their own lack of definition of “Dangerous or Hazardous” all AMI meters deployed at present need to be subject to shut off of service without notice due to “Dangerous or Hazardous” conditions. This may be silly logic on my part but the logic of the proposed rule is equally silly logic and the rule change request should be denied due to lack of definition of what is “Dangerous or Hazardous”. Based on my analysis of the AMI meter and the Analog meter the AMI meter is far more dangerous to the general population than the Analog meter.

In addition I think the MPSC should have a more active role in the technology decisions made by the utilities themselves. In the case of AMI meters the MPSC overlooked this responsibility to assure the utility monopolies are providing a safe metering technology to the consumer and businesses. Based on the effects on the population with people reporting near death experiences and crippling of their bodies with the AMI meters, this decision should be revisited by the MPSC in unison with the various groups that have reported serious issues with this technology. Otherwise the affected population at some time in the future will hold the MPSC directly accountable in a class action law suit which would have to be defended by the State of Michigan using scarce tax dollars for legal expenses. In the Flint Water Crisis the State of Michigan failed to provide proper governance and oversight of the water decisions in Flint costing the State of Michigan many hundreds of millions of dollars and it is far from settled yet.

Does the MPSC not see the similarities of Flint here with the AMI technology that has serious issues that can be simply solved? I do not want my tax dollars spent on defending the MPSC from a class action lawsuit. This requested rule set request is both deceptive and it is also obvious that the utilities want this rule provision to force every person to comply with whatever they want and bypass the MPSC to do it. This will permit the Utilities to use Social Media posts and other forms of protest criticizing them as a condition that is “Dangerous and Hazardous” and turn off power to shut people up and use the intimidation of shutoff of their power service without notice to deny them their first amendment rights. The public is not that stupid, significant numbers of the public knows the Utilities are going to use this tactic to force every home and business to have an AMI meter or else they will shut off their power without notice, even though there is no Federal or State law that specifically calls for an AMI meter. This AMI technology is specified in Federal law as a voluntary option for consumers not mandatory.

Forcing 100% compliance to AMI metering is not the solution; this will only lead to big legal troubles for the MPSC as a whole and direct legal liability to all individual MPSC members. Based on the testimony already made regarding AMI meter health issues the MPSC needs to step up and fulfill its charter to the residents of Michigan to provide SAFE and reliable power and not leave this to the sole discretion of the utilities. The current AMI meters are not safe, as evidenced of the dramatic testimony of residents that are suffering terribly and the engineering analysis such as I and many others in this field have performed.

If the MPSC approves these rule changes, then the MPSC should disband because your role in governance is of no value, merit or benefit to the citizens of the State of Michigan who are paying your salaries. You would have abrogated your governance role to the utilities to do as they see fit for their own exclusive benefit and no one else.





Pensions, War and Carbon Laundering

In the last 48 hours a post was put on this site warning of AI and the roll it will play in accelerating the pension crisis that is coming. Other factors are unfunded liabilities, negative rates on government bonds hurting return projections among others.

There is also the effect on bonds that will happen (a huge holding of pensions) as rates rise, particularly in the USA. Borrowing will cost more in the future or payments based on rates will increase reducing borrowing capacity (increasing cost) or paying down old debt issuance.

Many governments borrowed in USD so when rates rise AND the USD rises these payments will simply cost more and more accelerating an already ugly situation. You can take this scene from the Big Short and apply it to the entire pension and bond market.

Not so much the inner workings (although we now have sub prime auto, student loans and not much has changed in housing gambling) but more so the reaction Mark Baum at about 3:04. This is going to be the reaction on a global scale once critical mass is reached. Some critical mass actions have already happened in the USA.



‘The Dallas police and firefighters pension fund has just 45% of the money it needs to cover benefits. The fund rates to be out of money in 15 years at the current rate of withdrawals.’

One of the biggest issues is simply just denying reality when it stares at you. Humans are exceedingly good at that. Many fund managers will ‘assume returns’ in their calculations that aren’t exactly happening.

 If you think the above is isolated, I prepared some headline shots so you can see this is your city pension, provincial, state, federal, private… doesn’t matter.



Sometimes it is that the ‘perfect hell’ needs to come to pass before people wake up either personally or as a group. We are close.

Government is never going to tax big energy now, since they never have in the past. There will be no ‘neutral’ aspect of the coming gas taxes (yes, it won’t stop at Carbon, it will move to Methane and any other gas or element on the periodic table else after that).

Now for some  propaganda from carbon tax lovers:

This guy is an assistant ‘professor’ at University of Calgary. These are the people you are paying to teach your kids. Here is how the real world works.

Screen Shot 2016-10-17 at 3.08.12 PM.jpg

That government is going to introduce a tax that gives people in AB $5000 when their treasury has already been looted, they are in fiscal deficits and the entire energy sector which they are a primary investor/beneficiary is in shambles is complete lunacy. This will likely earn him a promotion to professor soon.



We see the energy sector losses for CALpers. Now let us get a good look at this sector as whole globally:

Puts it all into perspective doesn’t it? When a government sees commodity prices in the gutter and these companies suffering it will do anything in it’s power to make it all better. 

Governments like Canada who have this a top industry for tax generation (for the pre-looted treasury) have bigger problems.  Cue all the hurried meetings to get a carbon tax in.

How’s this going to work?

The easiest ways to explain it is: Exactly the opposite of the “$5000 for everyone chart above” and in favour, as always to the carbon traders, those who can accumulate the most credits and the worst polluters.

So here is how the ‘spread’ will be worked and what made Site C, Fracking and Pipelines ‘sustainable’ through carbon taxing.


You will pay for Site C, which is power no one needs at all but is now ‘justified’ by environmental groups like Pembina Institute because it is ‘renewable’ and ‘clean’ 

Notice how they never talk about how much ‘CO2’ will need to be made in order to pay off the debts of Site C? 

If you look at anything on the other end of the spectrum, it is ‘not so clean’ 

This would cost you all manner of ‘carbon offsets’ for your dirty deeds. No need to worry, you can dump as much fracking chemicals into the ground (which is way safer than CO2 of course) build dams and destroy farmland and lives and put pipelines through any reserve because according to the BC and AB NDP, BC/FED Liberals you have magically become sustainable! 

Simply by getting your ‘clean power’ (offsets) from Site C or any other ‘clean’ energy will make your dirty whatever disappear. It is called carbon laundering, kind of like money laundering. (alright not kind of like, exactly like).


‘Neutral Carbon Pricing’ or “Neutral Planetary Destruction” either or.

This is what we are doing instead of dealing with out pension crises.

The very governments that Green Peace,

Pembina Institute and the rest kiss the feet of (in exchange for your tax dollars) who say they are wanting to ‘decrease carbon footprints’ are instead making many footprints of war across the world for that very carbon.


Isn’t it crazy how Trudeau gave BILLIONS to countries like India to ‘fight global warming’ who then turn around and tell us they have authorized $150 BILLION in war spending?

I’d be smiling and shaking hands too if I were them. ‘Thanks for the cash suckers’

Screen Shot 2016-10-17 at 1.54.52 PM.jpg


And the world leader in Paris for saving the world by blowing it up a bit at a time has done his part also, like all those before them.


So supporting the above is always more important than the below:screen-shot-2016-10-15-at-2-45-22-pm

Ok, screw you and thank you!


Makes sense, somehow I though using energy was using it, not saving it. At least Green Peace isn’t confused on who they support:ABOMBA.189.jpg


We should all be giving the boot to these warmongers and tuning out their supporters like ‘Smart Prosperity’ and Pembina Institute who is teaming up with SHELL to ‘save the world’ from carbon.

Or else, as they say, we deserve what we get. And that will be… nothing. Or of course, negative nothing. Tell me, from the bottom of your heart, and the top of your mind, you truly believe that these people deserve more of our money? Do you truly believe those that commit ecocide, genocide, debt warfare and all manner of destruction, who are the causes of these problems and the primary profiteers of them are going to turn a new leaf? I know ‘environmental’ groups have clearly shown what they support. But you don’t have to.
































A.I. and the Pension Ponzi

Ponzi scheme:
A form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors.
The big key to this equation that we all need to wrap our heads around is ‘later investors’

Most people are generally aware of the above headlines coming out constantly now. Others are aware when senior staff leave their place of employment and no one replaces them. Still more in areas such as banking and finance are well aware of the acceleration of technology making them obsolete. If they are not aware, they will be, when it is that they are obsolete. 
The primary assumption for those that are facing this reality is ‘they can’t replace me’ and perhaps that is the case, for now.
Do you make less than $20/hour? Do you know that the projection by government and industry who have a good pulse on this (because they have to) is that 83% of these jobs will be replaced by AI.
$20-$40/hour? 31% chance. The sad reality? This came out in February 2016,  a lot has changed since then in this rapid evolution.
When John Chambers tells us 40% of ALL businesses will disappear that is, as they say, kind of a big deal. 
If you are paying attention to this trend, banks, tech and all other companies do their best to ensure we are blind to this reality as long as possible. Here are some of the phrases they use which means ‘we are cutting staff because tech, software, robots, AI has made them obsolete’ That way, when you see this moving forward you know why you, someone you know or your colleagues somewhere else have lost their jobs.
The massive acceleration will occur when paper money is banned and thus all those in any cash handling situations are toast. This is part of why banks are pushing this and of course Government owned pension funds being the primary holder of banks wants to ensure that less wages gets them a better ROI.
At this point I think it is clear the direction of tech, finance etc. However transportation and construction are moving quickly in this direction.
“We’re moving into the era of robots” said the chairman of Land Securities, the £8.2 billion FTSE 100 construction company.

“Businesses are focusing on [productivity], they want to reengineer how their people can work, they recognize that technology is upon us and is going to destroy thousands of jobs,” said Ms Carnwath, who has been on Land Securities’ board since 2004 and has been chairman since 2008.

At least she doesn’t beat around the bush on the destroying of jobs. 
Those that follow this blog know that it has been discussed that fast food workers because of ill conceived ‘fight for $15’ movements (that the fast food industry absolutely adores) are going to get the same treatment. 
We have also clearly shown how teachers are going to get pushed out of the workforce.
Of course, they are most likely just waking up to this possibility. Like many though, most still believe they are ‘safe’ from getting the axe from the very government that could care less about them and tech who will profit most from replacing them. Tech of course is a primary holding of Government Pension Funds. Yes, that very government who closes schools and weakens unions for this exact purpose.
We can see this accelerating now that the minister of education wants to ‘hear from you how you want your kids education’ in an effort to ‘provide a deeper understanding of their child’s progress at school.’
Report cards are a primary workload for teachers, when that is eliminated (and it will be) and when teachers become ‘guides’ instead of teachers, they will lose more bargaining power. Article have shown teachers somehow being worried this will ‘increase their workload’ which prompts me to wonder who is running their union? Why do none of them see this freight train running right through their smart boards, iPads, routers, data collectors (and classroom)?
It is really as simple as all testing done on the computers and email sent to parents in real time. No more need for report cards except on behaviour, which of course can be monitored by tech.
If you are a teacher just watch the trend unfold just as you have watched it unfold in the labour discord side and the tech side. It cannot be anymore obvious by now.
The government knows that both the tech and the will of parents to drown their kids in radiation in exchange for ‘preparing them to succeed in our changing world’ are now there. 

‘The robots are a project of Google, which has been working in secret but in plain view on robot engineers that can program themselves, using artificial-intelligence software that can reason about programming and mimic the decisions made by a human engineer.

With a technician nearby with root access to monitor the robot talk, seven test engineers have given over 1,000 tech talks without human intervention and written more than 140,000 lines of code with only occasional human debugging. One even programmed itself to learn product management, a task that requires creative and analytical thinking.’

They are preparing kids for jobs that are already not even there! Brilliant. They know this, but have to sell tech as the ‘future’ because no one can learn anything without complete dependance on tech and government.

The ponzi  scheme was mentioned. Ponzi’s simply rely on later investors to pay out to early investors. That is in general what a pension is. 
Has anyone… even once… thought to ask: What happens when all those jobs are gone, baby boomers are taking out instead of putting in and pension funds cannot get their yields in line to stay solvent?
Screen Shot 2016-10-15 at 2.45.22 PM.jpg
If a good majority of pension funds both public and private are already insolvent along with social security and medicare going negative in 2017 how on earth will this work when every sector of the economy will be losing jobs by the boatload?
Here is the answer on how it will work: It won’t.
It is 100% mathematically impossible, and they know it.
What happens when businesses (like the 40% John Chambers told us about) go under? 
Simple, bankers take your pension and you get nothing.
It is also important to realize what is coming in the government bond market. Government bonds will start to collapse when people realize they are insolvent also.
While no one believes it can happen and will look for any downtick in the stock market as the sign of the ‘next stock market crash’ they will be blindsided over the medium and long term support the market will get when people rush out of bonds and into stocks when they smell the rat.
It will start with emerging markets who borrowed in USD under a low rate environment. The USA WILL RAISE RATES and this will force the dollar higher as the entire insolvent EU collapses under the gross financial incompetence of all those leaders who now tell us we need to pay carbon taxes to try and fix their idiocy.
Before this, emerging market bonds will get hammered into the ground and this will be the tell of the markets that all hell is going to break loose on the bond side in Western Governments.
Guess what will happen? Governments will simply force the pension funds to buy the bonds to put a floor on them. Or they will convert a 10 year note into 30, maybe 50 year notes or 100 year notes.
So we ALL get to take the bath when the debt goes sour. 
Next time when you go to work, talk about this with your fellow employees, see the blank stare you will get as they likely will say ‘I can’t do or hear anything over 140 characters’ or “I don’t have time” and go back to scrolling their phone 5-10 hours a day.
This is what we get when we wish and hope and put our money behind this world and those that run it. When the people’s hero’s are whoever has the most tweets and selfies. We in reality, don’t want to see what is coming, we will look for anything but and thus we have:

Legal Lies It and Fentanyl


In the end it comes down to one leaf vs. another.

The primary topic that will have the most impact on the future of pot in BC/Canada is something that is never discussed. 

When something has been illegal for so long it has a way of establishing itself as a cash machine for various groups.

Political decisions are always based on money.

Safety is a non-existent concern.

For if our governments really cared about safety, they might want to direct more resources into the Fentanyl epidemic (which our governments invest in).

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 12.49.26 PM.jpg

Johnson & Johnson. Let’s see if the Canadian and BC Government is a DIRECT INVESTOR in Fentanyl makers:


Now underneath there, you see another company called Teva, which is a maker of Fentanyl. BC Liberal government crony run BCIMC loves to invest in Teva. Before that, let’s look at a statement from the BCIMC website.

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 2.24.44 PM.jpg

‘Responsibility to the broader society’ on full display here:


From 2014 to 2015 the BCIMC actually increased it’s holdings into a company that is part of killing, roughly 2 PEOPLE A DAY in BC. Sure, much of what is happening is synthetics from China which often people seek after using this drug or other powerful painkillers ‘legally’ at one point or another.

Buy some pot from a dispensary = Organized Crime.

Investing in drugs that are killing kids and adults that never needed to be made in the first place = Protecting Public Health. Got it.



Keeping BC safe means getting your BC Liberal buddies at the BCIMC to invest in drug companies that kill children. Got it.

Good sad look by Clark and Terry Lake for effect though.

Now that a few things have been established let’s turn back to pot.

A good portion of politicians are former lawyers. When things that people do all the time and have done for centuries are illegal, it makes them money. In the USA the primary purpose of ‘illegal pot’ on top of billable hours is civil asset forfeiture, which dwarfs ALL burglary related thefts.


When you are used to pulling in that kind of cash you don’t want that gravy train to stop.

Canada is no angel either. 


Stealing people’s houses to buy tickets to Mayoral gala’s protects the public and keeps kids safe. Got it.

Remember, the BC Liberals asked the Federal Government for money for 500 hospital beds for Fentanyl addictions/help.

Remember that the BC Liberals under their carbon schemes are STEALING money from hospitals and giving it to their buddies who donate to their campaigns who also just happen to be BCIMC investments!

If you know of someone close that died of a Fentanyl overdose, or is seeking treatment… let that all sink in and see for yourself below.


Let’s start with Interfor:


Then Canfor:

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 1.41.28 PM.jpg

Finally ARC Resources:


And then of course their connection to the BC Liberal BCIMC:


Of course a big congrats to the Pembina Institute and their buddies who are pushing for even more carbon scheme theft from our Hospitals that prevents people from getting the treatment they need. Nice work CO2 tax lovers.

You literally can’t make this stuff up.

In fact, you don’t have to.

So on top of losing a large chunk of Civil Asset forfeiture, we have another problem.

Canada’s pot czar is a former Police Chief for Toronto.

Which just happens to be right next door to the Peel Region who steal people’s houses for mayoral gala’s public safety.

If there is less police needed, there is less money going into the very pensions that buy Fentanyl drug makers. Essentially, police are battling against fund managers that use their pension contributions to proliferate these drugs.

So now perhaps we can understand part of the manufactured delay of using a typewriter and pen for a couple minutes and making pot legal: They need to find something for these guys to do.

One avenue many might be noticing coming is attacks on free speech. The other avenue is road side testing for drugs (which most likely will not include SSRI’s, Percocet and other legal mind altering drugs) but for… pot.

No one is saying driving stoned is good, although less likely to cause an accident than something like texting and driving, which is a top killer of teenage (and adult) drivers.

Don’t worry, it will never happen to you. And as most of you know, I have covered extensively how government is invested in these companies.


So we will have a reduction in pension contributions and police, lawyers, judges needed to prosecute those terrible bong smoking hippies that are out to ruin our youth.


This is a big issue for pension ponzi schemes that are insolvent/grossly underfunded across North America.

It is also a big problem for one of the deadliest group of companies on this planet: Pharmaceutical Manufacturers.


Yep, more people are addicted to legal drugs… than illegal drugs. Why? Your government gives them a pass since they are a primary investor in Pharma Companies. 

Let’s take a quick look  at CPP investments in these opioid makers. First, we will pick one at random: Vicodin, made by Abbott Labs



How about our favourite BC Liberal run BCIMC?

$60 Million into it, not bad.


We are just looking at pain ‘care’ at this time.


Simple, if you don’t know a good majority of people eat or smoke pot for? Pain.

Many of which recovered from addictions to the governments favourite ‘safe’ drugs or found that the Vicodin’s etc. gave adverse reactions.

What if 20% of the people figured out that this was a viable alternative for their pain?

20% less profits is bad news for the governments stock (and bond) holdings of these companies.

Another avenue that people use pot for is Cancer. Let’s take a look at the top selling Chemo drugs out there:


This is a $200 BILLION a year industry.

An industry our Government LOVES investing in.

And with these kind of profits, who wouldn’t want to invest right?

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 2.46.48 PM.jpg

CPP Holdings of the company ROCHE that makes the top Chemo Drugs:



Random coincidence that 560 MILLION is invested in Roche I’m sure.

What if people were curing their cancer left right and centre with cannabis? What if Hemp oil (which has ZERO psychoactive agents but is still ILLEGAL) was curing cancer all over the world? Wouldn’t that be grounds for our BC Health Minister Terry Lake to drop everything and give it an honest look?

The real question you need to ask is. How would this affect government investments in the Cancer industry? 

If you were pulling in $200 billion a year and lost 30% of your revenue from a plant that can’t be patented, that would be a serious hit to your bottom line wouldn’t it? 

We’ll look at the markups on 4 other drugs just for fun:

Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 3.31.16 PM.jpg

When politicians parade around about ‘getting tough’ on drug companies while simultaneously investing in them, allowing them to offshore earnings to avoid taxes and then working for them before or after public ‘service’ I hope you understand they are lying directly to you. They love those 50 000% markups.





The highest probability outcome as that Pharmacies  will be the ‘preferred choice’ of the government to ‘safely’ distribute pot.


The claims are already being put out that they should of course be the logical choice to sell pot since they ‘safely’ sell drugs every day and have done so for years. 


Extremely effective is of course defined as 10 000 people dying every year in Canada  due to overdoses, wrong prescriptions  altogether and so on. That number is astronomical in the USA.

Ranked #4 in DEATHS of Canadians.

1,2,3 in order are: Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke.

What is a primary cause of this? SMOKING 

 Smoking has killed 100 000 000 people in the 20th Century.

Smoking: 100% legal.

Remember this guy?

CPP Loves him to the tune of over $275+ MILLION Invested:


If you were responsible for even 1 death a year, you would be in Jail, then again, you don’t pay dividends or increase ROI of pension funds like these guys. Those returns make people MILLIONS a year.

Sleep well Doug. Just know you have done the whole world a good service.

Government investments will be moving to shut down ALL dispensaries.

When you hear the word ‘illegal dispensaries’ you need to understand that with one stroke of the pen they can ALL be made illegal just as quick as pot could be made legal.

This creates force of law and just like with the pipelines etc. they will use their thugs to go destroy people’s lives to protect their profits by giving them sole monopoly on this industry.

So while JT and the gang have you focused on ‘organized crime’ perhaps we should be looking into other crimes altogether?

“He who profits most from a crime is the one most likely to have committed it”

Once again,

Thanks guys, glad you are on our side.

“In the ideal world, the drug-impaired legislation would come first and then Health Canada would spend a year educating Canadians, especially parents, on the risk of cannabis use, closing the illegal dispensaries followed by the start of legal recreational marijuana sales through a public health model,” he said.






Big Oil, Big Pembina, Big Money

Do you know who this is?


This man may have one of the single biggest impacts on your pocketbook in the coming years. You likely have no idea who he is, but you should.


There is a reason why he always seems to show up at every press conference. That reason is he is virtually fully dependant on government money for his corporation.

‘The other 90 per cent of our revenue comes from Canadian governments, companies, foundations and individuals interested in the innovative thinking we bring to sustainable energy challenges.’

This is the man that is working directly with government and industry to find ‘solutions’ Those solutions include more Pipelines, Site C and Fracking. 


How did he work with industry to fleece the people, get Site C built, increase fracking in BC and get a pipeline built? Simple.

Pushing for a carbon tax on you because without it, Big Oil would not be able to take advantage of Cap and Trade, Governments would not have a new unlimited tax resource and he, of course would have no relevance to society nor would the millions he gets from you continue.

How did the Alberta NDP show their ‘climate leadership’? Did they give us a tell on what John Horgan and the BCNDP really stand for?


How did the Federal Liberal Government show their ‘climate leadership’

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 9.57.50 AM.jpg

(hey, at least it wasn’t a selfie and at least his shirt is on)


Here is their ‘vastly different approach’ of the Alberta and BC NDP, the BC Liberals and Justin Trudeau.  Ready?

Destroy some of Canada’s best farmland and vast amounts of forest to build Site C. This will allow Alberta to meet its ‘30% renewable targets’ for 2030

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 9.41.40 AM.jpg

Nice work Shannon and Ed, you pulled the nail out of the Site C coffin in the name of helping the environment. NONE of that electricity is needed at all, so you guys + Trudeau got together with Clark and Notley to ‘get this thing done’ Rachel Notley placed an ultimatum on BC to get the NDP’s coveted pipeline projects built. 


Then, magically a knight in shiny twitter algorithm selfie armour shows up to save the day:

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 12.02.44 PM.jpg

What a ‘vastly different approach’  than previous governments don’t you think?


The old government wanted to get oil to port. They failed. The  ‘new’ Government wanted to get oil to port so they passed a new tax and made some deals. Pass.

Here is the ‘vastly different approach’ in a nutshell

Old Government: More Oil to port.

New government: More Oil to port

Old Government: Permit Site C

New Government: Permit Site C

Old Government: Increase Fracking

New Government: Increase Fracking

Yeah, totally different. Sounds good, tastes good, but in the end, it makes you sick.


How do  you make Fracking, Site C and more pipelines magically fight climate change? Simple, make a  tax. Yes, it’s magic folks. Have a ministers meeting every month where everyone flies in on private jets. Get an ‘authority’ on the environment (Pembina Institute) to affirm your ‘logic’ in exchange for keeping the gravy train going and sell out BOTH the environment and the people for big industry. That is what Ed, Rachel, Justin, Christy and their parties have always excelled at.

No Carbon Tax?

No MILLIONS for Ed and his 40 employees with offices everywhere waiting for the phone (and cash register) to ring.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 9.50.40 AM.jpg

There you go. You pay for these guys to sell you out. They do have 40 employees now so I  guess in some way you are contributing to the ‘strong economy’ of the government he works so closely with.

This is another favourite token line the politicians spout, first from the Alberta Government Climate Plan:

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 9.49.04 AM.jpg

Directly from Pembina ‘Institute’ Website:

‘The Institute continued to work with First Nation communities, municipalities and regional governments on energy efficiency and renewable energy, while also providing high-quality life cycle research and sustainable energy solutions for industry.’

And of course JT Chequebook and his ‘Nation to Nation’ comments (while simultaneously not recognizing the indigenous charter):

How lovely, hand over the heart in a true sign of caring for the land, the people and the world.

Here is the reality:

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 12.02.24 PM.jpg

Here is another cognitive dissonance generating reality: Trudeau, not for one second of his life cared or ever will care about First Nations. There is no commitment to First Nations groups and there never will be. Ever.

Just like his dad and ALL Prime Ministers before him, he could care less.

If he did, he would not be sending away BILLIONS of our dollars to purchase smart grids in other countries so Microsoft can profit but actually investing in helping First Nations communities.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 11.57.43 AM.jpg

How do you work ‘Nation to Nation’? Simple, violate every possible treaty you can to make sure your Big Oil buddies get paid.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 10.04.19 AM.jpg

And what is Canada really good at doing? Violating treaties and land plundering. Justin Harper or Stephen Trudeau… doesn’t matter.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 10.57.29 AM.jpg

What First Nations groups don’t see coming is that the Carbon Tax will be the all seeing tax and GST/PST will be phased out in the long run in an effort to create an entirely new tax base which represents roughly 4.3% of Canadian population. 

So while many hailed ‘climate action’ and Trudeau  as the saving grace, they got their land stolen and now will be paying taxes. Didn’t see that in any ‘Nation to Nation’ speech, but those are the actions taken.

This is not isolated. As you can see, continuing on the federal level, Pembina also shapes taxation policy or at minimum makes recommendations that you need to be taxed at drastically higher levels to, of course, save the environment… by increasing fracking, pipelines and building Site C. Because after all if it is taxed, that ‘pollution’ that is carbon (not toxic fracking waste chemicals) will save the world.

The top graphic is from the Pembina website, the bottom the government. They are one in the same in their support for environmental destruction. 

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 10.47.20 AM.jpg

Now, the more ‘revenue’ the government can rake in because it is broke, means more money for Pembina to ‘grow organically’ this can happen when you ‘use public funds strategically’ to pay for photo ops and ‘science based papers’ to keep the gravy train coming to station.

Their recommendation is not as completely insane as some have been quoted. They only want a 500% increase in the carbon tax over the next 5 years. While others deem a 2000% increase as the exact number that will make the clouds cooperate. (based on science of course)

“Dined regularly” with Suncor to make a climate ‘compromise’ with Rachel Notley? Wonder if that ‘compromise’ was to ensure one of Canadian Governments darling investments (Suncor) was able to capitalize on the Climate ‘Plan’? Magically in time that big dirty Suncor all of a sudden was ’embracing’ the Carbon Tax…why? Simple, Pembina and co struck a deal to funnel money into their pockets via Cap and Trade and steal from schools, small businesses and hospitals that you pay taxes on or to run.screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-11-58-22-am

Amazing how this works isn’t it?

I have showed countless times how heavily invested Justin Trudeau’s Government is in Big Oil. Here is a nice chart to simply display what our bread and butter is and how, of course, the saviours of the world would never dare to ‘hit them in the pocket book’

If you had the power to put in laws that would hurt or help your investments, obvious logic concludes you would help, not hurt them. 

Note how transparent government has been about real estate and also note Alberta’s bread and butter with the understanding that real estate (Mortgages that banks hold the paper on) there has been in decline and it will continue just like it will in BC.


Hmmmmm… maybe that is why there were so many minister’s meetings that produced a ‘new approach’ to climate change?

Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 3.21.01 PM.jpg

Also note the BILLIONS in debt that was issued by these companies (bought by banks and pension funds all over Canada) If there are issues with the bonds or stocks of these companies, who would lose most? Banks and the Government of Canada! Hopefully they can find a revenue vehicle to bail them out in the event this happens. Maybe an air tax… or something like that.

Don’t call it a pre-emptive bailout, call it ‘Climate Action’

After all we still haven’t got paid back for the last CANADIAN BANK BAILOUT, which helped all the banks you will see below and in every pension plan.

This bailout was only $114 000 000 000 (billion) so of course our government would never secretly do a back door bank bailout without telling us right? Wait, that was Harper, Trudeau is honest and nice and does lots of selfies, he wouldn’t organize any secret bail in deals on the hush would he?

He would never create a law that would allow banks to STEAL your deposits for making bad  bets on something like Real Estate, Oil and Gas… because he is not Harper, he is the red guy and the red guys are good. None of those banks are profiting from the fact that for the first time ever our DEBT EXCEEDS GDP so as long as he says ‘my friends’ and ‘diversity’ and cuts a few multi billion dollar cheques, who cares.

Imagine that $114 BILLION the government gave the banks for screwing up the entire economy went into Solar Panels? Or… of course the question is, if Trudeau and all the rest say the economy is ‘back to normal’ why don’t we get our $114 BILLION back?

Now, let’s take a quick look at just one Alberta Pension Fund:


As you can find yourself, in any plan, this is how they invest. The other side of the equation is the investments in Oil and Energy, here is what BC does, yes that is $600 MILLION in Suncor shares. So while one government dines and makes deals with Suncor on carbon schemes, another (just like Alberta) is a heavy investor in the very company they are making ‘compromises’ with. Coincidence I am sure.


Good job by the Pembina Institute to support Big Oil, Big Fracking and Big Pembina’s pursuit of your  money.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 12.15.25 PM.jpg

So here is where the ‘Cap and Trade’ factor comes in. They will put a cap on carbon (not chemical pollutants, but something that makes up the very fabric of all life) and reduce that cap, making it so the remaining ‘credits’ become ever more valuable. Genius.

Who will trade those credits in the $10 TRILLION/year (yes TRILLION) carbon market?


That’s right, the banks pushing for carbon taxes. We won’t even get into the Billions a year made underwriting/buying ‘green bonds’ which is an exploding industry (debt vehicle) the banks will also profit on.

Most of which continue to have to be issued because of completely failed energy policies that Pembina helped contribute to in places like Ontario which are coming to BC and AB. Yes, the $300 Billion in debt province is now exporting its ‘green’ policy to the west. Soon we will be in permanent Green Energy bail out mode, like Germany, who is now exiting the wind energy market after finding it to be a $1.1 TRILLION failure. 


Here is Pembina pushing hard for the same complete failure of a program to take over Alberta and BC like it has destroyed the landscape, finances and energy of Ontario who has seen massive increases in power costs since the passing of the act.

Love that the ‘clean energy benefit’ is called a benefit… because you benefit from having less money? Government certainly have valid logic.

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 11.41.21 AM.jpg

Thanks, really appreciate it.

Notice the skyrocketing power rates in BC? (and the entire country) Removing disposable income is always a net benefit to the economy. Right.

The Minister of ‘Climate Change’ who is rubber stamping with Trudeau more fracking, more pipelines, more destroying of treaties, farm land and the creation of a massive pile of debt to build Site C for power we don’t need so Oil Sands  companies can qualify for ‘carbon credits’ is telling you this is for ‘sustainable prosperity’ Don’t question, just believe. Governments always tell the truth.

Look at this picture, it is the picture of 2 people so excited about how much money they will soon take from you and give to their best buddies in Big Oil, Big Climate:

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 9.08.38 AM.jpg

We are always told that keeping the temperature under 2 degrees increase is the way to save the world, and the way to do that is to tax everyone so there is less C02. Then, the solution to that is to create MORE CO2 and higher taxes? Orwell reincarnate?


This is the same groups of Government that are pushing for the biggest energy wasting system on this planet of Big Data, Big IoT and the Smart Grid.


I suggest you read this PDF to see the direction these  guys are taking us and the massive power needs required. Have a quick look at the Coal/Power requirements for the Smart Grid. What happens when they ‘phase out’ coal? Massive new power needs, less power to sell (perhaps site C will be the fix for that) which means higher profits per watt sold for utilities that are seeing energy use declines. Weird how that accidentally works so perfectly don’t you think?

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 11.49.11 AM.jpgScreen Shot 2016-09-24 at 11.49.25 AM.jpg

These will become the energy suckers of our era. Not. One. Word. on that.


Simple. The Energy Companies will be able to sell more energy to these data companies. The governments are more invested in them than anything. 

So when Big Oil uses power from Site C, they can get carbon credits. When massive amounts of renewable energy are used simply to store, track and sell data, they will get carbon credits. When fracking is considered ‘clean energy’ they will get carbon credits. Yes the dirtiest energy, with the help of Pembina and Government, becomes clean. As they say, dirty or clean money is always Green!

Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 11.52.44 AM.jpg

Big Data will do the same thing, they already are. Might have been some nice farmland but who eats food when you can eat data right? Although, the trend really seems to be destroy farmland for power so… (yes, this is just one data center)


No one ever talks about the massive waste of power these things are, just how much of that power is ‘renewable’ (eligible for your money in carbon credits)

Sounds like a lot of credits… who is the debtor?


Who is the loser? The environment, First Nations, our resources, our money, our future, our farmland, our energy systems.

Who is the winner? Pembina Institute, Big Oil, Broke Government Coffers, Smart Grid Industry, Banks and Pension Funds.


So, while Ed Whittingham pushes for more money to be stolen from your already failing school and hospital systems in exchange for his lifestyle being paid for on your dime I am hopeful that you wake up to the truth that NONE of these people or parties give a damn about you, your future or the environment. This is ALL about money. 

No one is saying we don’t have work to do. No one is saying ‘we should do nothing’ No one is saying there are no alternatives to try and work with. What we are saying is that trusting serial liars who work constantly to steal your money, no matter how noble the issue sounds and no matter the truth in the fact we need to find better ways to live (like waste less resources on war) we simply cannot trust people who  will do or say whatever to put their interests over that of the world and it’s people.

Once you stop believing the lie, it will cease to exist.

Fight For 15

You might have noticed in the title of this post there is no $ sign. This is mostly because of the fact that once this movement has gotten itself to ‘mission accomplished’ stage it will not be a fight for $15 dollars, but 15 hours.


Just like everywhere in North America, the BCNDP have decided to put their weight behind this movement in an attempt to gain votes from those that might get themselves a nice raise. The consequences? Irrelevant, so long as votes are gained.

Obviously when you look at CEO/Upper Management, Administrators and all else in areas like Banking, Government etc. we know there are huge discrepancies in salaries.

We know that many of these people get paid fortunes regardless of performance and at times it seems (BC Ferries, BC Hydro… anything with BC in front of it) they get paid more the worse they do. Even if it something else that would have you or I in jail, they walk.


We all watched as massive bonuses were paid to CEO’s for Sub Prime Crisis (and dozens of others like it.) We know that barring the fact that a few pennies are getting paid to hundreds of millions of people we have outright slavery at most Fortune 500 companies or their subsidiaries.

We know that many people are not fighting for $15, they are fighting for 15 calories, fighting large corporations/governments stealing their land, fighting over e-waste to burn so they can get some metal from it to sell for food.


We are well aware slave labour is being used to make your phones, mine the metals for them and so on. There is a long way to go for true equality beyond the CEO buzzword use of equality to make the twitter algorithms work. Or the buzzwords we want to say while supporting someone else non ‘living’ wage in a foreign land.

The point of this article is not to get into how to perfectly solve this problem but rather the problems the political ‘solution’ will create.

I am sure you have all seen articles talking about how this increase in wages is going to somehow increase employment or at a minimum ‘not affect’ jobs. Right.

Typically, someone will point to some obscure situation over a short period of time in 1 city and say ‘look here, it works’ and then a year or 2 later they will never revisit their claims after the dust has settled and the jobs cuts keep coming.

You start to wonder if any of these people making these claims have done either A) basic math, B) ever owned a business or C) have any understanding of the speed at which technology is replacing people in the work place.   This is roughly 90% of all politicians.

These ideas are very romantic. Who doesn’t want a government forced wage that increases your hourly wage by 20-50% without you having to show you have added anymore value to the company you work for? That’s right, no one. In fact the probabilities are high that this doesn’t stop here, for many will feel ‘this is what we should have got the whole time’ and continue to do exactly as they have which will be a further erosion on productivity. In case you were not aware, despite all the tech, the training and all else productivity of workers is getting to all time lows.

One of the primary reasons cited? People on the very phones that are supposed to ‘save time’ while they are supposed to be providing productivity (value) for the company they are working for. Looks like many companies are just bypassing the phone/human thing and just going phone:


I grew up in Ontario. We were very close to the USA border. While I was on the younger side of life when NAFTA came around, I remember a video by Ross Perot (of all people) The video is appropriately titled ‘giant sucking sound’ It was made for the purposes of talking about the continued push by big corporations to get legislation done to reduce labour costs.

As time passed I was still too young to care about the effects this ‘deal’ would have. Slowly as each factory went from 3 shifts to 2 to 1 to Mexico it can be hard to see it. Like when you see a child every day you might not notice them growing but if you don’t see them from age 6 to 10 and then do you see the difference.

I also recall at the time there was much debate and in fact there were many in the industries that were completely gutted that were duped into believing politicians and industry were going to do ‘what is best for middle class families’ 


Last year I went home and many of the factories, hotels and the rest are just weed infested parking lots. Same in other towns close by where people used to work.

Why? Everyone’s friend Math.

Every companies best friend: The Cheapest Labour Possible.

A small reminder was put out the other day of what we all used to see almost daily where I am from. Some plant moving to Mexico because labour is a fraction of the cost there than it is to produce in Canada/USA.


97% reduction in labour costs. Wow. Inversely to the question posed earlier, what CEO in the world wouldn’t want a 97% decrease in labour costs? What CEO wouldn’t want a 5% decrease in labour costs?

A huge factor in accelerating this trend is another completely failed policy that was supposed ‘be a permanent fix’ and that is Obamacare which is driving businesses large and small out of the country or just out of business altogether.

While in Canada our ‘free’ Health Care  is not exactly a push out of the country, it is our massive increases in Hydro costs, MSP, benefits and all the rest that are drags on profits. We can get into just about anything but the driver of all things, in the end is costs.

Rule # 1: If there is a cheaper alternative to anything, all things being equal, the corporation MUST go with it.

Here is the issue. Costs either get eaten or passed on in the event there is no alternative. However since the dawn of time we know that countries (which are legally corporations) and corporations will ALWAYS look for the labour that is as close to slavery as possible. In fact most countries were founded on slavery which is part of what ‘got them ahead’ of the competition. When countries (the worlds largest corporations) and corporations (what most believe are the largest corporations) get together on something it is a 100% guarantee it will be for their interests and no other.

Just like NAFTA provided the avenue to find cheaper labour as did China, India, Mexico and whatever name is on the back of your shirts and shoe tongues so will iPads, computers and automation. (which are also not made in North America)

While politicians and workers hail this as ‘a long time coming’ small business owners are letting the world know what it means to them. Pay cuts for owners, dropping total hours for all staff, more hours for entrepreneurs, eliminating staff, cutting fringe benefits or total compensation or outright replacement. This article is a great real world example. You will be seeing many like this moving forward. You will also see less workers, more iPads.


This article is having a heavy lean on the food services side. The reason is it is this industry that is mostly doing all the pushing. It is also their unions jumping on the bandwagon. Inversely it is companies like Starbucks who are echoing the sentiments of small businesses with actions. What are those actions? Adding more jobs? Increasing hours? Increasing ‘total compensation’? 

No, of course not. They are firing people, reducing hours AND moving to phones/tech doing all the work (which also provides them data to sell). These are the companies that can’t just move to Mexico. These are also the big multi-national companies who will, under no circumstances ‘eat the losses’

In fact, they stand to benefit the most for while other small coffee shops, eateries and the like have to eat the costs (or close) and don’t have the capital to invest in expensive computer systems, Starbucks, McDonalds etc. have a few aces up their sleeves.

The first one is to secretly pretend they don’t want wage increases.

Impossible you say?

Yes, it certainly seems that way. However, what better way to push out workers than to let the workers do it for you. Some companies really don’t care. If you are in Finance, look out because this is one that is moving fastest. Finance is mostly transactional based. When you start to learn that 80% of ALL TASKS will be done by software, you know that as a minimum 50% of ALL finance jobs will no longer be needed.

This way, when they do their quarterly updates, or fire people by the 1000’s, they can say ‘Look, the government passed this law, so we had to adapt to protect shareholder value’


So the food industry plays this card with politicians. I really hope that by now many of you will know where this is going. These multi-nationals buy politicians and elections. Not only them but the entire complex of Big Ag and all things up and down stream. There is not a single piece of legislation ever created that hurts election donors. Ever.

A quick look at the Province of BC pensions alone and how they invest in these very companies. Remember, they do not invest in mom and pop stores. They sure do love to tax them to death while letting Starbucks, McDonalds and the rest offshore their earnings in Luxembourg or wherever. If you’re clever, you know the reasons come companies can do it and the others can’t already: Destroying all competition to government investments, increasing revenue via taxation to compensate for the taxes multi-nationals don’t pay is the CRA’s job.

Here are some documents of reference. I am showing one from California below which is seeing people and businesses close and leave to better pastures due to min. wage laws just passed and high taxes. Typically they are ahead of BC in their folly and politically imposed idiocy. Here is BC

As you will see if you look, the numbers are all right there. When you consider that governments make up the bulk of the $25 TRILLION pension industry and also pass the laws to ensure no taxes are paid and competition is destroyed via CRA/IRS you start to see things clearly. Many of you have seen this image. It is a great image. This is literally an image of Every. Single. Pension Fund.


One thing I wish these people did was somehow find a way to show how heavily invested our governments are in these companies. Since that is not the case, I will do some of it for you. You will see that for the most part, it resembles the below image vs. anything to do with ‘equality’. Municipal, Provincial/State, Public, Private, Federal, Union… they are all invested the same.


Let’s show a company called Yum Brands. It is the controller of Taco Bell, KFC, Eastside Mario’s, A+W and Pizza Hut. Yum Brands, in the end, is owned by Pepsi. Pepsico, via CalPERS (just one of many pension funds in California) is owned to the tune of more than $400 MILLION. You can find Nestle, Proctor and Gamble, Coke… whatever on your own time.


McDonalds? Same thing. Every other fast/medium food chain? Same thing. BCIMC? Same thing. Canada Pension Plan? Same. All pensions? Same.  Whether you are talking about tech replacing teachers, lawyers, doctors, drivers or fast food workers, it is all the same. The government is going to look after their investments via legislation. This is why ‘working with’ fight for $15 proponents ‘against’ corporations that they are fully invested in? Right.

Just like in schools and every other place someone is going to provide the Wi-Fi routers, tablets/iPads, computer software, cyber  security, data harvesting/mining/selling and so on.

It just so happens that those iPads that are going to replace your friendly server trying to pay tuition, are massive holdings by the very government that will introduce the laws to make those workers obsolete or less competitive, just like they did with NAFTA and other ‘free’ trade agreements they continue to push for multi-nationals.

It just so happens, they (like Big Oil who pay no taxes and pay for every election) also pay for elections and just so happen to run algorithms to favour certain candidates. No different than big Oil, they seem to for some strange reason have the ear of the most powerful people. Wonder what it is they talk about?


You can clearly see this is an everyone wins scenario. The only problem is that you and I and all those workers are not part of everyone.

So we can get a snap shot of downstream value that will be coming to other entities as well. We see that Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow and all the rest are huge holdings. Their chemicals are in just about all the food we eat, which all these companies sell to the public. Hard to ignore the marketing of these ‘quality safe products’


By now many of you (in some cases it is said 80% plus) know that these chemicals are absolute poison and cause sickness which hurt our health care resources. (meaning increases profits for government Pharma investments) My hope it is beyond obvious at this point why all these deadly chemicals are miraculously ‘proven safe’ and ‘have no known effects’

When you are all over yourself for your party passing some law to ‘save the world’ by increasing taxes… do you ever wonder why they don’t touch these guys? Do you really think they care if they are letting these guys poison the entire planet? Do you really think these people care?


These guys know exactly what they are doing and who they work for. It is in no way for the commoners among us. It is in no way to ‘ensure a living wage’ for how do you have a living wage if you are replaced by an iPad? How do you have a living wage if you are replaced by a machine that makes burgers perfect every time, wants no days off, pensions, never sleeps and is twice as productive?

This is strictly to give their pension fund investments an advantage in market share, overall profits, EPS and whatever metric you want. I have warned before of these funds desperate search for returns since bonds are negative and it is hard to get yield out there. Warnings have come from everywhere of governments looking to trim costs (staff) which is the same as we here from Private Firms (like banks and the rest). See what Starbucks did.

The ramifications are huge. We already see issues with companies dumping current workers and going to laws (once agains passed by bought and sold politicians) to hire cheaper labour (because that is what companies do) to compensate for cost increases.


Yes, those multinationals that say words like ‘living wage’ and equality go around in the background, fund campaigns to let them hire cheap foreign labour and then fire people by the 1000’s.


There are 2 aspects that no one seems to want to discuss, for perhaps if they did, they would get the usual labels we all know well. Every one of these countries is taking in millions of people. These people usually take on these entry level lower wage tier jobs.

There is just one problem, millions are coming in and millions of these jobs are disappearing.

For example, in Germany over 99% of 1 million refugee/immigrants don’t have jobs.

This is a whole other story on it’s own. We will leave this here but it is definitely something to think about.

If you are of the belief that somehow your private or public pension is going to be there in 10-20 years ask yourself this question. If slowly but surely we keep moving in this direction and people that are leaving are being replaced by robots/iPads/AI who is going to keep the pension ponzi going? If pensions are already in a massive crisis across the globe because of lack  of returns on government debt how are they going to cope with those losses AND people contributing less since they have been replaced by machines AND people in record numbers drawing on pensions?

Sorry folks, when 1 pension plan in California has over 1 billion invested in Exxon, they are not going to go after them with any carbon taxes. Same as in Canada. When they have billions invested in Monsanto etc. that is why votes don’t pass to label GMO’s. When they have countless billions invested in Big Fast Food, they are not going to pass laws that hurt them and help you.

Until we wake up and smell the money, this will only continue and people will be duped into whatever government says if it fits their mutual agenda with their investments that are protected by the very laws they pass.

Don’t want to break it to you to intensely here, but yes, if your party you vote for (wherever it is) can be considered in the top 2 or 3 parties… they are in on it. That is just how it works. Put the pride away and look at the numbers and the actual actions beyond the headlines and one liners on podium lecterns.


If you hear some politicians talking about this stuff you know it is just ‘strategy for the upcoming election’ to get people to vote themselves out of a job. They will get in and your job will be taken out, what do they care?

The question I ask is ‘How do you give someone a raise who doesn’t have a job or gets their hours cut? You don’t. That said, you can certainly give your share/bond holdings a RAISE in value by one stroke of a pen. That is where the election ROI (return on investment) comes in.

Just as with the Smart Grid, Data Mining Schools and virtually every other law, they are bought and paid for. There is one thing we always must consider: No matter how much money is involved with who or when, if we don’t buy the lies and we act on them with knowledge and understanding… they won’t work. If we believe the lies and form our entire opinion on headlines and phone scrolling press releases they will work. For there is nothing else to point to but the shape we are in now to see this is true.

Lies cannot be sold without a buyer. Don’t buy it.
















Site C vs. Dakota: Follow the Money

Site C and the Dakota pipeline project have some differences in their size, scope and geographical location. Where they are the same is in a category that doesn’t care about where it is  or what’s in its way.

What I am talking about is in the minds of man. Also, we are talking about money, which is on the minds of men at all times. More importantly how to get more of it.

Sure, you may not be one of those types. However those that control that money whether by this issuance of it or creating legislation to get it most certainly think about nothing but getting more of it.

For both these projects, this is what it is all about.


Dakota was not something I was overly familiar with until some brave people put it on the radar for myself and many of you out there. While most people are focused on what hand out they will get next, these brave people are actually getting off the couch and standing up for all of us.

If you are in any way skeptical or unsure of the ‘social quality’ of a project, you need only look where the money is coming from or going to. That’s it.

“Get your snout in the trough” is an old British saying. In general it means:to have or get a share of a supply of money or some other advantage that people eagerly and sometimes dishonestly take’

In the case of Site C and Dakota unfortunately, it goes way beyond dishonesty although that is a large component. 

The money side of it is on great display for all to see in this article. and in the graph below:


Loans and Credit. Go on, take another look, when you do just consider this is just. one. project.

An outside guess is these banks have already considered the project ‘done’ and want to take the paper (industry term for loan documents) and sell the paper to someone else for a fee just like sub prime.

Understand that also High Yield Energy Debt is a ticking time bomb right now and who is most exposed? Yep, all the banks (and more) that you see above. What does that mean? If these HY Debts head south, banks will be forced to write them off or sell them for pennies on the dollar. This is already happening as the Oil industry and governments who depend on their revenue struggle with low prices and more entrants into the marketplace. If prices are low and there is more people in the market, they only ‘way out’ is to sell more oil. Here is one problem with that which I will touch on later.

Coming back up to Canada, we all watched as the BC Liberals, the Alberta NDP and the Federal Liberals worked with the demands of environmental groups and got Site C pushed forward. Sure, we saw the Clark and co. wanted this more than anything else but the icing on the cake was ushering in a Carbon Tax scheme for the sole benefit of all the people we hold dear: Big Banks and Big Energy. These entities are morphing into the same thing and intertwining with Big Data.

They did this for the same reasons MONEY. It was a clever plan in taking anger at those ‘dirty Albertans’ and ‘Conservatives’ and turning it into a brand new tax regime that was ushered in for the sole purpose of propping up completely broke governments. If you go to this link, keep in mind it might cause you problems. It might upset your paradigm that your party is superior for ALL these provinces and our Federal government got into the mess they did because of all the parties.

What this also did was affirm that those that believe in CO2 killing the planet were ‘right’ and who affirmed that right? Why of course the biggest wasters of resources on the planet who have bankrupted Health Care, Education, The Treasury our Environment and all else.

Not sure I would be so excited about the very people who caused these problems (and more) giving me a seal of approval but environmental groups will take it if it fits their agenda and keeps the money flowing to them just like Big Oil and the rest.

They sold it well. While they had untold premiers meetings talking about ‘saving the planet’ what they did not tell us what that it was strictly about saving themselves and their power structure. Think of pneumonia, the body will keep the centre warm and lose the extremities to stay alive. Same here. You are the extremities that if they need warmth, blood (money) they will just take it from you.


If you didn’t notice the peculiar timing of the fact that oil was half the price it had been for some time (still is years later) and a third of it’s all time high (still is now). This is across the energy sphere for various reasons but good ol’ trusty lack of demand and cheap credit fueling supplies was a main factor.

Now, if you look at the cost to produce for Oil and you understand for us to get LNG to those ‘hungry asian markets’ (who are turning to cheaper producers like Iran and Russia for their needs anyway) you realize there are very large gaps.


No one cares about these gaps when oil is over $80/barrel. Where they start to look really ugly is when Oil and LNG are priced below the actual cost to produce. Which, if you have been paying attention is exactly what is going on right now and why massive layoffs and cuts have been happening in the sector. Yes, this will tax the treasury on EI etc. so more revenue will be needed to pay banker debts on our loans from them.


Oil companies are worried. Your government (all parties) is worried. Most people only think about royalties from extraction and taxes/revenue from employment. What they don’t consider is who is the primary shareholder of all banks  and all big oil companies? That’s right, the Government of Canada and the Government of the USA.

So, does anyone really believe that those that paid to get these politicians into office will get ‘hit in the pocket book where it hurts?’ Or was their anger and hatred for these companies cleverly steered into getting them more profits? Let’s see.

What does seeing require? Looking at things objectively, peeling back the layers, the rhetoric, dogma, emotion… all of it and going to the facts, numbers and true motives.


I even heard someone say ‘Was Trudeau intimidated by Big Oil’ and things like ‘Trudeau was forced to do this’

Guess what?


It was the plan the whole time,  and those that bought the lie made it real, for there is no seller without a buyer. Same with those that voted NDP in Alberta to ‘give those conservatives the boot’ (for the record, I never once liked Stephen Harper, never voted conservative. I am not here to say one is better than the other. I am pointing out they are the same, for they are politicians, human and love money.)

The NDP worked with the PM and the BC Liberals to make Site C happen. Why? I can hear ‘but they really care about the environment, they said so on their signs’

What runs a Party? Simple. Money. What runs a province Simple. Money. (OK Debt)


Yes, I know, not even household debt:


Man that is a lot of debt wonder if any banks are making money off all this debt? Wonder if in exchange for these profits they donate to the parties who will ensure the flow continues. Ever wonder why no one can ever seem to balance the budget? Simple, no debt for you to pay down, less profits for banks which governments invest in. Not to worry taxes are for building roads and schools 


What happens if all these companies get into trouble with a prolonged slump in commodities? Simple. You bail them out.

We know that these ‘terrible companies’ that Trudeau and Notley are going to ‘hit hard’ most of them, in most countries, provinces and states pay little to no taxes, just like tech companies. So, why now all of a sudden will some ‘magic’ tax come in and ‘really stick it to them?’

They don’t pay taxes, so the profitability will be higher. Higher taxes imposed by government means lower returns for Government who invests in these companies. Also, by charging any potential up and coming companies full taxes (like small businesses) it reduces competition for government investments (why do you think the CRA crushes small businesses but turns a blind eye to multi-national tax fraud?)

Why also do you think CEO’s of big oil companies were so against the Carbon Tax then all of a sudden changed their tune and are using words like ’embrace’ and ‘adapt’?


Do you think these companies who kick people off their own land, fund governments that blow up entire countries for resource domination all of a sudden grew a heart? Nope. Do you think those very governments who are destroying countries (with your tax dollars) and using those precious finite resources magically started to care? Nope. 


Do you think the NDP, BC Liberals and Federal Liberals who are destroying this countries best farm land and violating long standing treaties solely for profit give a damn about the world? Same as Dakota.

The government knows it is bankrupt. The government knows that it needs a new revenue source. The government knows that these Big Companies need a new revenue source. The government and these companies know one thing also. That is to get as close to the money trough as possible. Unfortunately for you you are both at the end of the trough AND the one the puts all the money in it.

Think about all the ‘looking out for the middle class’ nonsense you have heard from every party, in every jurisdiction since the 50’s.

How’s that working out?

Think about every lie you were told where they said one thing and the exact opposite  happened. I am going to show you how Site C and Carbon Schemes are the same.


Alberta was having issues getting it’s oil to market. It is also in the fiscal dumps. Solution? Tax people more so they can buy less stuff…which helps the economy. Got itThen give that money to Oil Companies who will profit, and then not pay taxes.

It’s odd how there is an entire country called Canada who could use that oil/energy as we are already importing lots of oil but that is for another time. It needed to get oil over and across British Columbia where they know there is very stiff opposition. So, the question became ‘How do we appease the environmental groups and still achieve our goal of making our massive investments in Oil and Gas stocks and bonds profitable’?

Simple, you sit down with all the Big Oil and Banking CEO’s that paid for your election and ask them to come up with a scheme beneficial to you, because you know it will be beneficial to them as they want to make money and so do you.

So you fire up the teleprompter or the speech writers and simply repeat the same things over and over and over again until that is all people think about. ‘2 degrees’ ‘If the temp goes up 2 degrees’ ‘We need to fight climate change”We need to save the planet or else’

Now the centuries old tactic of scaring people young and old can be used to obtain the financial objective. For when people are scared they do anything, the one thing they don’t do is think and reason they are emotionally steered along to the desired outcome.

“We’re all going to die if you don’t give the biggest wasters of resources more resources to waste” Essentially when you peel back the layers this is what they are saying. The saddest part? People buy it out of fear or out of ego to prove they were ‘right’

This becomes the substitute for ‘logic’ and that is exactly the objective. Here is a prime display of what passes for logic these days:


In a nutshell, in order to ‘stop climate change’ all the NDP in Alberta had to do was get more oil to tidewater? If you are a diehard NDP, you are now in a walking contradiction. If you are a BC NDP supporter notice how John Horgan said nothing (as usual) about this whole thing?

So if it is taxed enough whatever pollution or damage it does magically disappears?

How did the conservatives not figure that out? Must be stuck in the past.  It appears the NDP took a page right out of the PC book.

Here is another beauty from someone I know you all love and trust with more of your money and is really concerned about your family, so much so that she is stealing from hospitals and schools (which will only get worse) to fund carbon ‘exchanges’ which ‘exchange your money’ to people who fund her campaign and just happen to be large holding of BC pension funds.



So (and this is hard to type without laughing) environmental groups are pushing for Clark to ‘do more’ on this.


As in, steal more from schools and hospitals? Nice work. They rally around this logic. Not to worry, it is all arms length stuff. Governments fund these groups as do banks and people who will benefit from the carbon taxes, they make them look independent and then let them do the PR work.

It really works well. For some of you yes, this is hard to understand that all other banking/government co-opted ‘movements’ would operate this way, except yours only, but it does. It’s alright if you don’t believe, do some homework and follow the money.

This is the logic that Fracking will ‘help fight climate change’ And put all their faith and trust into the very person that is most against the environment and people of this province? 

Do the banks we talked about look at anyone who is even close to bankruptcy and lend them money? No, and here we are giving more of our money to these financially, ethically and morally bankrupt people. We deserve what we get, we get lies, we believe them and pay the price. (literally)

Every single province, territory, state, USA/Canada are beyond bankrupt. If a company or corporation like Ontario were $300 000 000 000 in debt (that’s billions) would a bank lend them money? No, of course not.

But what if Ontario said ‘I know it looks bad, like really, really, really bad. But I have something you might want  to consider which is the ability to instantaneously make money with a stroke of a pen’

Of course, the bank knows all about this so their ears perk up. ‘We can pass sets of laws over time to ensure that BOTH the debts will get paid and it will help your investments in the companies you own’

Certainly the banks are looking at the metrics of taxes and so on and wondering ‘Society seems quite upset with taxes on everything and are near their limits and their level of trust in you is approaching zero, how will you convince them to pay’

‘Oh that is simple, we will tell them it is for a good cause like protecting their children’s future or protecting their land’

“Sounds great I think it will work”

‘Yes, First Nations groups are all over this kind of thing, and the beauty of it is we will get a whole new tax base of them for over time we will eliminate the taxes they are exempt from and implement the Carbon Tax on all people because  they will all have to do ‘their fair share’They will never even see it coming. So not to worry, we will have even more people to draw on to pay back the debts we owe you and why wouldn’t we pay, we own most of your stocks and bonds?’

If you are First Nations… did you catch that? Did you realize the government that wants to work ‘Nation to Nation’ is now working to eliminate one of the only ‘benefits’ you received from being virtually wiped out and having your land taken by the very people who still, to this day are destroying/taking your land, water and treaty rights? Nothing has changed. The biggest thing that has not changed is our belief that voting red will be different than voting blue. There is only one party… the MONEY PARTY and none of us are invited.

So, while people fall all  over themselves about guys like Obama stopping keystone and sticking up for minorities or less advantaged people. Or liars like Trudeau with his ‘Nation to Nation’ nonsense we see the true colours, the action and inaction clearly shows they are complete liars. How is Site C or Dakota happening if these people actually cared?

They don’t. Put the Liberal/PC or Democrat/Republican nonsensical pride aside and look at it for what it is. They are ALL owned by money and power. That money and power is strictly maintained so long as people believe their lies.



The question that I usually ask is: ‘What is the exact tax threshold that we all need to pay in order to balance the weather’

This has been asked to economists, people in government and environmental groups, with of course the classic replies ‘Oh so you support big Oil’ or ‘So your solution is do nothing’ The reality is (as I will show) it is they who will be supporting big oil and that doing nothing (that involves the government stealing my money to support big oil) would actually solve the problem quicker. When it resorts to name calling and cookie cutter responses that fit google algorithms, you know there is nothing there in the logic department.

I typically follow with “If you cannot balance any budget in any area large or small how are you going to simultaneously balance the budget and the weather at the same time’ Is it the red line on those charts where the clouds look down and say ‘That’s it, you got it, we will behave now’? Does the tax change the chemical composition to safe for all those chemicals they use for fracking and all the oil spills magically are ok now?

To this day, I have never gotten an answer to those questions which would seem like they would have obvious and clear answers.

So this is how the Carbon scheme got Site C passed and this is how specifically it will benefit banks, big oil and federal/provincial coffers.


Do you see it right there in front of you? Do you also know as part of the CLEAN Energy Act we get Site C? And what is CLEAN energy? Simple, not dirty energy like big bad oil energy.


So what if magically an Oil and Gas company was using ‘clean’ energy for it’s operations? How would that benefit them? Well that is an easy one. Let’s say you had solar panels, and the government deemed it ‘clean’  and then there was a carbon scheme where those that used/produced clean energy would be eligible for ‘credits’ (that means money) You would certainly be rewarded. 

Think about that only on a much more unimaginable scale of energy used/produced. Now wouldn’t it be just so convenient if the rush to implement these schemes just so happened to be at the exact time Energy prices are plummeting or flatlining and have done so for a few years and are forecast to do so for a couple years to come? Funny the timing don’t you think?

Guess what? Site C will also be deemed clean energy. My guess is you are aware of the two primary sources of revenue Site C is supposed to generate. Either 1.) Earth saving fracking or 2.) Environment saving Shale Oil.

Why was this such a rush to push through? (both Site C and CO2 tax schemes) because EVERYONE NEEDS A BAILOUT. And where do bailouts come from? YOU! (and new taxes)

So, if Fracking co’s are both producing and using clean energy… who is going to be eligible for all the Carbon Credits? That’s right, the very big oil, gas, whatever that the environmental groups wanted to ‘force’ this tax on to ‘really hit them in the pocket book’ and because of this it is they and us who will end up paying to pad profits of these companies.

Most of you know I follow the money. I have found the easiest way to do this similar to doing a big pile of dishes. Look at the big stuff first it makes all the small stuff easier in the end.

Here, I will show you just one pension fund. The governments, listed on the Security and Exchange websites are CORPORATIONS first, counties, countries etc. second. This is a whole other story I won’t get into at this time.



This is why in Title it always says BRITISH COLUMBIA investment management corporation. Or CANADA pension plan. By right, title and claim it is the government (corporate entity) that owns control of the money. This is the mechanism they use to confiscate pensions all over the globe. Here are some examples of how they do this globally and how bad a shape our pensions are in. (I will cover this in detail in another post)


What does that all mean? If you did not know, when governments get desperate, they do desperate things… they just hide it well and have an unlimited supply of money from you to deal with it.

The problem with this is that most people that want to see ‘social change’ don’t look at numbers. Even if they did, if the numbers were not inline with their belief structure, they would not believe them. This is called cognitive dissonance. Here is 1, just 1 pension fund. I have stated before, they all copy each other so no matter where you are, it’s the same.


Should we believe? That is the question. Not whether we should help the environment, not whether we ‘should all pay our fair share’ not about who is right or wrong or who’s vehicle is smaller and therefor more morally acceptable than another’s but should we believe the greatest wasters of resources should get more of our money? So odd that all those ‘humanitarian missions’ just happen to be in the most resource rich countries don’t you think?


Should we believe that when these people spend this much money on war for procuring resources for the companies they are invested in (and get to work for when they leave office) really want to ‘stick it to big oil’? If we are ‘all going to die tomorrow’ and that we ‘can’t waste finite resources’ why are we spending all this money and resource on destroying people and the world? Have you asked yourself did the party you voted for do this? The answer is YES, because they are ALL in on it. This is over time and parties. Just like the NDP, BC Liberals and Federal Liberals worked to push through Site C the Democrats and Republicans spent this money on looting and pillaging.


This really could have been a lot of solar panels, but then again, if people are generating their own power, they are not buying from Big Energy… so we can’t do that either. Unless of course they are getting heavily subsidized (like Big Oil)


Right… fixing the weather, that’s what the money is for.


It just so happens that the governments are also heavily invested in war stocks. It also just so happens banks are pushing extremely hard (by pushing I mean funding campaigns of those who will push carbon taxes) because it will profit them also.



Don’t you find it somewhat coincidental that Obama’s top donor just happens to be Goldman Sachs who stands to profit most by the $10 TRILLION a year carbon market? Do you know that Goldman Sachs is one of the top pension fund holdings of ALL government pensions?

It works like this. If you started with 10 000 ounces of gold (carbon) and the price was $1000/oz and then by some strange force of nature, that gold started disappearing and over time it was 1000 thousand ounces. By logic of supply and demand you would have roughly a 10 fold increase in price.

Now, ‘Cap and Trade’ does this. Big Companies will be able to suck up all the credits (why do you think Apple, Google, Facebook and the rest are going to clean power???)

This is what they are going to do to you, small businesses and anyone else they are not invested in. This is repeating for sure, but it needs to be said: THESE COMPANIES DON’T EVEN PAY TAXES and you will be giving them even more money.


So since they amount of credits they are issuing will fall, this will increase the value of the existing credits. Now where to you REALLY make money? Simple, if you know the government (that you paid to get into office) is going to reduce the amount of credits you bet on the price going up using carbon derivatives and make a killing. If there is one thing banks love it is derivatives. Because? That’s where all the money is, and if they implode, you get to pay! Don’t you think governments are extremely excited when they hear groups pushing (and people believing) this kind of thing? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could walk into your boss’ office and ask for a 2000% raise and if he said no, make a law forcing him to pay you without your consent?


So wrapping it up, who wins? Big Oil, Big Data, Big Carbon, Big Banks, Big Pensions and Big Government. And since all your money is going to be taken to give to these guys, you will have less money/capital to get your own clean power, which is fine for the government and big companies because this is how they push down competition. After all, how many shares does your government own in you? Your small Business? Exactly.

Who loses? Those people around Site C, Dakota Pipeline and everyone else who has to pay for these schemes. This is all covered in detail in the videos below. It is a 3 part series where it is all laid out for you, with numbers and facts.

It is started with those who people are trusting to fix the environment because they truly care burning people’s houses to the ground for money, just like razing land and houses to build pipelines.

Lastly, on and for the record: I am a huge supporter of Solar and various other economically logical renewable projects. However when I look at the constant debt being piled up for ‘Clean Air or Clean Energy’ laws that are designed to profit Big Everything that is where  there is an issue. If we are getting money to someone, it should start truly with lowest income people and highest return areas. There is a tonne we can do as people if we get all these leeches off our backs and out of our wallets. If you do not know, I can’t stand BC Hydro so any sensible direction that cuts them out of the equation I am all for it. The ‘transition’ needs to be to energy freedom for us all not just transitioning tax credits to government invested companies. That is all that is going on here.

My confidence in us and proper direction is extremely high. Our issue is we don’t follow money, we don’t use logic, we believe lies and most of all, we rely on governments to solve the very problems they have created instead of looking at ourselves. We are the only ones that can fix things, not them and when they take our energy (money and time )and waste it this is the single largest source of pollution for  we rarely put into the equation how much energy was used to generate those taxes. Once we can understand the money game, we can understand everything.
