Umm... Ham Radio anyone. When everyone knows things are controlled they'll find a way to communicate the truth. I know several people that grew up in communist block countries during the cold war and their parents all knew the score and listened to dissident media of some sort. Only the children, who the parents didn't even trust to tell the truth for fear of being sent to the gulag by "patriot child snitches", believed the MSM bullshit.

SS: This article "There’s a News Blackout on the Fed’s Naming of the Banks that Got Its Emergency Repo Loans; Some Journalists Appear to Be Under Gag Orders" is blowing up for good reason. The economy/government has been hijacked by Wall St. No shit Sherlock, I know, but still.

And the banks have been, again, operating if not illegally, then, let’s say, stretching the envelope, by pretending that what really are margin loans to help people buy stock are really disguised, or somehow their lawyers have drawn up these contracts as derivatives contracts.

And a derivative you can lend 50% against, instead of just 15% for margin loans. So the banks actually have been working around the whole spirit of the law to make much larger loans than they should have.

And when the stock market, as you have been watching, back then is doing what it’s doing today; it’s zigzagging, up and down, and up and down in a zigzag. That’s how you make money: Push it up, computerized buying; push it down, computerized selling.

And one part of it was other banks venturing not only into derivatives but into the margin loans.

I don’t think the ownership can control management. It’s not that Citibank and Chase can say, “Well, we own the majority stock in the Fed, so we’re just going to appoint one of our own guys as manager.”

They don’t have to. They’ll give money to the Biden administration, and Biden will appoint their people.

Reality TV is fine, if it's really reality, i.e. rigorously statistically valid "average White family", "average black family", etc. No agenda driven editing. I'd love to see the average black child's upbringing vs. the average White's. In my upbringing, all White schools and neighborhood, the biggest concerns were grades and acne. Other than that there wasn't much to worry about.

Demographics changing before my very eyes. I grew up in an all White city and amazingly enough it was idyllic, go figure. Now, nobody hardly speaks English and there is zero sense of community. My city had summer fairs that were pure wholesome fun.

irrelevant issues

Yeah, the destruction of nearly every, large city in the US due to negros being unable to into civilization is irrelevant. The destruction of our schools becoming mayhem, streets too dangerous to walk, needing not only locks but iron bars on doors and windows in the very houses our grandparents left wide open all night, etc. ... irrelevant.

Are Blacks the root cause, no, they're a symptom of a deeper rot. But they're hardly irrelevant. Being outraged at Blacks' effect on society can be the beginning of wisdom, it leads to asking questions, which Jews (yes yes among other poisonous forces like oligarchs, but I repeat myself) can not tolerate.

I never said that. Nice straw man though.

I suppose this argument is for the more numerically minded, or at least those that can parse a sentence.

Would you say it was "a lie" if 1 million Blacks committed murder and 1 White that I said "essentially all murders are committed by Blacks"? Would you delete "essentially", misquote me, and then call me a liar?

Jesus, that IS a fact. There's frequently a lot of value in distilling a problem down to it's simplest form. e.g. If you were given ONE policy change to solve crime, what would it be? Our (((enemies))) would say remove Whites. But they'd be 180 degrees wrong. If you asked them what is the total solution they give Byzantine solutions involving White guilt, prison reform (free the Blacks), 1619 project indoctrination, Affirmative Action, No Child Left Behind, miscegenation, Hate Speech laws, ...ad nausea. But the truth is, and we can go back in time to prove our one policy change is all that's needed, just remove Blacks from White society and crime goes away, TO A FIRST ORDER APPROXIMATION.

I don't think you understand his valid argument, i.e. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_approximation#First-order. In simplest layman's terms, if you rounded to 1 significant digit, a bit if you will, or "all of it" vs. "none of it". Likewise if you did the same question with Chinese you'd get "none of it", same with Whites.

It's NOT an exaggeration, it's a first order approximation. If you were a politician, social engineer, law enforcement, etc. and someone said "solve crime", the first thing you'd do is remove Blacks from the vicinity or heavily police them and you WOULD solve most crime.
