Service Sector Speak. From Citi To The Savoy, It’s All Just Wallet-Prying Word Play.

FEBRUARY 19, 2019. Being treated with “Elite” status feels up-lifting, like a warm oily ass massage. And that’s precisely what it is. It’s just business. Well, of course it is. Neither your doorman or your waiter with your spoon love you.
In this world you will receive wedding “invitations” to be a”guest” with you paying the entire nut, and for the gift that absolutely everyone will see and judge. 2K later you wonder what kind of person calls you their “friend” and “invites” you to be “their guest” at a resort on the opposite coast. The wedding industry established that absurdity. That’s all just service sector speak, coast to coast.
Often, very smart people direct very clever and chic businesses. That includes many financial services “firms” flogging frozen dog scat they refer to as “retirement planning.”
Such people intimately know how to open your wallet effortlessly. No crowbar required. That’s their dollar snugged into your wallet. They do this magic like a stone pro, and they are. You are the wallet-flower they cooz into bloom. Next and without exactly realizing it, you’re burning for that honey love. It’s all good yo, if you enjoy being played. But it’s gonna Fa King cost you.

Equifax Man.

JANUARY 26, 2019. What’s not to love? Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, all high-jacked your data, regularly flog it to whomever they please, refuse you a slice, make you beg or pay for access, and then in Equifax’s case lose it. Where does that leave you? STOCKJAW takes a look.
Identity thieves, drug cartels, and the mob all behave in the above manner. After creating the problem, the credit cartels now want to sell you the “solution.” Sound familiar? Speaking solely for ourselves, we want some pay-back. But how? Can we make them work for us? They deal in your sensitive data, but can’t promise to keep it safe, even from their own bungling. Perhaps they can provide some safety from other thieves. In varying ways they’ve provided a process. Here’s precisely how.

America The Targeted.

JANUARY 1, 2019. American innovation did not fall complete from heaven in a Ziploc. It’s American ingenuity and ingenuity isn’t free. So called “forced technology transfer” is neither free or trade. It’s Fa King theft. No level playing field exists internationally, nor will any soon–if ever. Some say that “no one wins in a trade war.” Really? Such nonsense can only come from the uninvolved. The real question is how much brute and outright theft does it take before the U.S. acts? Don’t look to the WTO or the EU for any help.
China has no intention of engaging in fair trade. Really? It’s no surprise to anyone who reads us, that we harbor zero respect for The Economist’s bent globalist agenda. They don’t hide that. They call it “advocacy journalism.” Thus, no confusion remains when even The Economist admits the Chinese are cheats, liars, and thieves.
We can hear it now. “Chauvinism.” A Google search defines chauvinism as “exaggerated or aggressive patriotism.” Such terms are largely subjective. What we do know is that years ago Google told the Chinese apparatus to go screw itself and promptly vacated the country. That was over censorship. How can America ever trust a system that’s systemically dishonest with it’s own people?

Eclipse of the JPMorgansons? Paypal’s Digital Wave.

AUGUST 15, 2018. No one hides. Don’t turn your back. P2P is only the edge. That glistening cutter-fin circling the water is mobile. You got a phone? You run a POS? Every “point-of-sale” is fresh game. Ask Paypal. Or just listen right inside management’s Q2 huddle. Dazzling, and yet ringing in our ears.
Making sense of where to invest in the financials is easy. It’s a three-way. Goldman, JPM and the old guard, the cards, or fintech. The financials’ future is written on the wall. So are the numbers, and charts. We lined it up. You decide.

Come Fly With Us.

FEBRUARY 11, 2018. They’re back. Just in time for ax season. The EquiClowns refuse to fully vanish from the footlights of financial farce. But you knew this was coming, as did we. #s are revised. And fraud #s are as a rule revised upward.

No. It’s not magnitude here, not this time. The fun facts hare involve what we now know they lost. What else could they lose? Done your taxes?

Exactly How Vulnerable Are You? Broom And Lock Down, Before the Rain Booms.

JANUARY 30, 2018. Debit and ATM/bank cards are wired directly to your stack. Electronic pirates know that. That’s why they “War Drive.” Have one of these cards? Most people do. Remember TJX? War Driving. Debit cards?
Branded? Or lowly ATM/bank card? Which and where should you use of these? We’re telling you which and we’re telling you where–including the sole place we’re comfortable using one of these. Know which one? We have two even better ideas.

Equifax lost what they stole and it was yours. That data’s a time bomb, and it’s tied to your leg. Limit the potential damage. Which is easier, locking it down(20 minutes) or attempting to mop up when it blows? Besides, they’ve got it coming–or you do if you do nothing.
