Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796

2018 was the year for religious prophets to predict the end of the world and be wrong. Seems like 2019 is starting off with a bang. It’s all about a flip of the Earth’s magnetic poles these days. Up is Down. Down is Up! Learn more in Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796.

True North Ain’t True No More

Especially relevant is the movement of the magnetic North Pole from the arctic over Canada, toward Siberia. Our magnetic pole is moving so fast even NASA has put out emails noting the speed of the shift and its effect on your devices and GPS systems.

From Canada To Siberia

According to NASA the northern magnetic pole is racing away from Canada toward Siberia with ‘surprising acceleration’. While the magnetic poles normally ‘wobble’ around, this is unprecedented. Enter YouTube to save the day.

Disaster Porn

Suddenly YouTube is full of videos describing calamity and disaster. From Russia Today to the BBC and all points in between. Moreover it won’t be long until the mainstream cable networks and broadcast television get hold of this story and run with it. Step right up and get your disaster supplies right here!

cYouTube Goes Overboard Again

Due to intertest in moderately factual accounts of the magnetic pole movement YouTubers have gone overboard with all kinds of information and theories. As a result factual lines are getting blurred. Theory becomes immanent danger with warnings that the actual geographic north and south polls will follow the magnetic poles, and the earth’s rotational axis will ‘flip’.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul Will Be The New Miami!

Most noteworthy to Minnesotans is the prospect of Minnesota slipping down to the equator in a new orientation. Could this happen? Theoretically possible. Would we survive it? To go from 13 degrees to 93 degrees in one afternoon? All of us northerners would like to try!

Sleeping Psychics, Sumer and the Plastic Crust

Finally, who came up with these theories to begin with? From Edgar Cayce, “The Sleeping Psychic” to Immanuel Velikovsky and Zechariah Sitchin. In Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796 I tie it all together and you can decide.

Political Dealignment-Culture Shock-Bob-Davis-Podcast-750

I find it harder these days to make sense of politics. We’ll talk about it in Political Dealignment-Culture Shock-Bob-Davis-Podcast-750.

Role Of Podcasting

Moreover it’s time to talk about the unique role of podcasting in sorting out the noise. Especially since our day to day news coverage has become a reality TV drama. A minstrel through the lens of Cable TV News and Social Media.

News Is A Reality Show

What will it be this week? A reveal in court that has to be walked back? A trade deal touted as the greatest thing ever that closer examination turns out to be just ok? An economy that is the ‘best ever‘? Diplomacy and policy discussion conducted via twitter?

Sorting Out The Noise

Especially relevant to me is the role of podcasting in this political realignment. How do podcasters help listeners navigate these times? More opinion disguised as news? Or worse, opinion disguised as ‘truth‘.

Let Politicians Defend Themselves

Most noteworthy is the idea that the ‘little people‘ need media to defend and interpret everything politicians say and do, when those politicians should be able to defend themselves. Find out more in Political Dealignment-Culture Shock-Bob-Davis-Podcast-750.

Tuning Out

Finally I am beginning to get the impression people are turning away and tuning out the noise anyway. Should podcasters rush to cover stories in depth that will be forgotten in twenty four hours?

Mean Discourse

I spent a weekend delving into the last one hundred years of history for Podcast 749. Our country and the world has changed so much over the last century. We have exchanged the industrial revolution for a technical revolution. Technology has made our discourse meaner.

An Invisible America

There is an America where people share their passions and help each other out regardless of their political opinions. That America just isn’t always visible on social media and definitely not visible in news coverage of every breath taken in Washington DC.

Maybe that’s the problem.

I find it more difficult these days to talk about breaking news. Propaganda passes for actual news. Find out more in News-Information Vacuum-Personality Cults-Propaganda-Podcast 731.

Attack or Leaping To Defend

In addition correspondents are on the attack or leaping to defend the president’s summit with the North Korean leader. Furthermore, rather than report on the economy talking heads assert there is a ‘boom’ without new GDP numbers to support their contention.

The Narrative Is Controlled By The Wizard Of Oz

What happened to news reporting? Now the narrative is controlled by the president. Media personalities seeking relevance are expected to defend Trump’s increasingly bizarre assertions or say he can’t do anything right. Moreover the media seeks to predict elections before they happen.

Twitter and Catfights

Moreover, newsrooms don’t cover issues.

Reporters cover twitter feeds and catfights.

Since the president inflates any small accomplishment as a world beater it’s especially relevant to talk about actual results.

Results? We Don’t Need No Stinking Results

What are the results of the Trump-Kim meeting? The so called booming economy? The draining of the ‘swamp’? Find out in News-Information Vacuum-Personality Cults-Propaganda-Podcast 731.

Trump Political Vacuum

Welcome to the Trump Political Vacuum. You’re either defending or attacking Trump. Everything else is fake news. Trump is the antichrist. Trump is under the protection of God. The president is a child, or playing “four dimensional chess“. Take your pick. There’s no in between.

Welcome To the Delusion

In conclusion people suffer in the vacuum. Finding a good source is almost impossible. Discerning what’s real and opinion is even more difficult.

So, we live in a dreamworld of delusion.

Finally without facts surrounding an event a free society cannot make informed political choices. I can identify two times in history when it was this bad. Neither ended well. Moreover, this kind of situation erodes the foundations of a free society.

(Editor’s Note: These days in these rambling podcasts sometimes I make confused references. This time I made a reference to the Berlin Wall falling ‘in 1983 or 1984’. Of course I know the fall of the Berlin Wall occurred on November 9th, 1989. Subsequently the Soviet Union collapsed in December of 1991.)
