This is why I hate [most] pop music these days…

A short-attention-span culture demands short-attention-span songs. The writers of Tin Pan Alley and Motown had to write only one killer hook to get a hit. Now you need a new high every seven seconds—the average length of time a listener will give a radio station before changing the channel. “It’s not enough to have one hook anymore,” Jay Brown, a co-founder of Jay Z’s Roc Nation label, tells Seabrook. “You’ve got to have a hook in the intro, a hook in the pre, a hook in the chorus, and a hook in the bridge, too.”

The production quality is crucial, too. The music is manufactured to fill not headphones and home stereo systems but malls and football stadiums. It is a synthetic, mechanical sound “more captivating than the virtuosity of the musicians.” This is a metaphor, of course—there are no musicians anymore, at least not human ones. Every instrument is automated. Session musicians have gone extinct, and studio mixing boards remain only as retro, semi-ironic furniture.

The songs are written industrially as well, often by committee and in bulk. Anything short of a likely hit is discarded. The constant iteration of tracks, all produced by the same formula, can result in accidental imitation—or, depending on the jury, purposeful replication.

Pop hitmakers frequently flirt with plagiarism, with good reason: Audiences embrace familiar sounds. Sameness sells. Dr. Luke in particular has been accused repeatedly of copyright infringement. His defense: “You don’t get sued for being similar. It needs to be the same thing.” (Dr. Luke does get sued for being similar, and quite often; he has also countersued for defamation.) Complicating the question of originality is the fact that only melodies, not beats, can be copyrighted. This means a producer can sell one beat to multiple artists. The same beat, for instance, can be heard beneath Beyoncé’s “Halo” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone,” hits released within four months of each other in 2009. (The producer, in his defense, claimed they were “two entirely different songs conceptually.”) As Seabrook notes, although each song was played tens of millions of times on YouTube and other platforms, few fans seemed to notice, let alone care.

Globalists Are Telling Us Exactly What Disasters They’re Planning for The Economy

The core of their globalist organization is the desire for total power, built upon full blown narcissism and sociopathy leading to naive notions that godhood, for them, is attainable.

Now, one might assume these globalists would never restrain themselves with such a thing as “rules of etiquette”; that chaos is their sole strategy. However, this is not entirely accurate. From my observations, it appears that they do follow some rules. One of those rules seems to be this: For whatever reason, they willingly and openly volunteer their plans or reveal future outcomes to the public for consumption before they implement those plans or trigger those outcomes.

The rationale behind this could be any number of things. Perhaps it is a method of gloating. Or, being high level narcissists, they would psychologically be in the habit of hinting at the crimes they plan to commit and then view our lack of reaction as “permission” to go forward. My theory – it is a combination of both, as well as the idea that revealing a plan and then enacting a plan without resistance gives that plan even more power than if it had been kept strictly hidden.

What the globalists want, ultimately, is public acceptance and submission to their authority. They don’t want to have to operate from behind the curtain. They are narcissists. They don’t like hiding.

You see, globalists are perfectly happy to tell you in advance what is about to happen, but they are never going to tell you truth about WHY it happened.

It is likely that on top of the reasons already discussed, these elitists happily admit to their schemes because they think there is nothing anyone can do about them anyway.

n terms of financial protection, the answer is also clear – central banks in nations like China and Russia are stockpiling precious metals at an unprecedented rate. Here again, globalist institutions controlled by the BIS are telling us exactly what is about to happen. With the US slated to enter a steep decline, and stagflationary dangers looming, major players are moving into gold and to some extent silver. It only makes sense that the common man, while he is still able, place a percentage of his saving into these commodities as well.

With tangible commodities in hand, backed by the stability of localized trade, any community could weather the storm of a fiscal downturn. Without these things, survival is far less certain. The very despots that have the ability to cause a collapse are telling us a collapse is about to happen. It is time to take the matter seriously, and prepare accordingly.

Invaders Are Not Immigrants

Instead of becoming the melting pot, as symbolized by the motto e pluribus unum, the promotion of multiculturalism has fragmented and balkanized America into two very distinct and divisive camps.  One (the GOP) seeks a return to Constitutional governance while the other (DNC) seeks a Socialist/Marxist Statism.  There are now enough minority lobbyists with funding from George Soros and the Arab oil barons influencing American foreign policy to change the direction of our country.  It is the heartland of America that refuses to surrender.

The Meaning of Independence Day

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ~ Samuel Adams

Celebrate that which deserves to be venerated, shun that which deforms our indispensable values and noble aspirations.  The Fourth of July is not a government anniversary.  It is a time to remember that independence is the spirit and the soul of the nation.  The fireworks are for as John Adams rightly affirms – a Day of Deliverance.  That liberation from captivity is what we honor and so often forget.  If you are incapable of understanding the distinction between the goal of liberty and the reality of tyranny, you should study your heritage on this solemn day.  
You will find a wealth of information on the Fourth of July Celebrations Database.  Display the original Betsy Ross flag and beware of the reasons that cause the fifty star forgery to be disgraced.  The Meaning of Independence Day has not changed.  Now, citizens who are oblivious to the national crisis just yearn for the intoxication of a never-ending party.  What kind of an American are you, an original patriot or a government lackey?  This day is yours if you know who you are and what you should be . . .

The Trump-Putin Peace, Trade, And Friendship Talks

The fact that Washington’s warmongers so violently oppose his forthcoming talks with President Putin is evidence enough that he is on the right track. Let’s hope that President Putin can keep him on the rails that lead to peace, trade and friendship.

“If this sale goes through to Hydro One in Canada it will bankrupt the middle class, lower middle class, and the poor people of Eastern Washington , North Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Alaska. It will destroy family budgets and businesses.”
