Background on Patrick Andendall

Picture

Award Winning Author Patrick Andendall has always had an interest in politics, and being multicultural, he views issues from a more international perspective. In 2004, five days before the election, he flew to Cleveland and pitched in to help with the political process. What he discovered was the dissolution of the American Dream, which he writes about in his book, Stupidparty.

Andendall was educated at English boarding schools from the age of seven through eighteen, the final five years spent at Lancing College. This respected English high school, with its impressive literary and religious heritage, is also known for its stunning chapel, sitting atop the Sussex Downs. Leaving school, he immediately started work, sometimes holding three jobs at once—a trainee underwriter/claim broker at Lloyd’s of London, running his own one-man cleaning company (cleaning the very offices of a reinsurance company he would transact business at), plus doing seasonal work on various farms.

Having made some windfall profits after borrowing money to be a “stag” (short-term speculator)— taking advantage of opportunities created by Margaret Thatcher’s denationalization policies of the mid-1980s—Andendall evolved into an entrepreneur with a core specialty in reinsurance in London and New York, where he looks for patterns in numbers. Self-employed in a field not normally conducive to self-employment, he is able to remain in control, juggle different jobs, travel, and pursue his various interests.

Ending up in New York via romance in the African bush, Andendall now lives on Long Island with his wife, two children, and two dogs.

But being subliminally aware has not prevented the march of the Oligarchs. Many books covering this subject matter have been written by academics and no doubt many academics actually read those books. This book attempts a reboot, take the pieces apart, look under the hood, drill down to the real problem. Ultimately all this drilling leads to the same molten core, the outlet volcano oozing its lava into every crevice, eroding all that is held dear, leaving behind a scarred wasteland.   

By understanding the problem – solutions will materialize. Being aware, subliminally or other wise is not enough. This book is a call to arms. Take responsibility, take action – or you lose the right to grumble about the destruction of democracy in the USA.

      Patrick strikes me as being a couple of things one is a bit of a free spirit and the other is, from an assumption that I am making from his education, a pretty bright individual who is a real individualist. People like that generally travel extensively and that is how he probably met the lady who became is wife. I will ask him if you are curious.

    I wish somebody could explain to me why The Dow Jones Industrial Average is on the verge of a wild advance. This is something that can’t be explained by charts it must be psychological in nature. The forecasters have mostly been talking about gloom especially after the decline in December of 2018. Let’s here it from the geniuses out there. “This Is Nuts” to paraphrase what an American General said after The Germans asked them to surrender during “The Battle Of The Bulge”. This is not a political question but a psychological one, can somebody get a Dr. of quackery on the show to explain “Why The Stock Market” appears to be heading into a sensational upward advance especially with all the bad news out there. Surely it must mean that Trump is not going to be impeached and that having a businessman as President is good for the economy. With all the financial wizards out there somebody must know something. LOL!DT

      Trump will not be impeached but any “wild advance” that might materialize will have little to do with him.
      A few possible reasons for a higher stock market:
      -The massive bond market has topped
      -The economies of the rest of the world are in worse shape than the U.S. economy
      -Large U.S.-centric and international companies viewed as safer than governments
      -Fed policy/inflation

      All that liquidity has to go somewhere and, luckily, the gold/silver mining space is so tiny that it will blow away the Dow/S&P from here.

      • On February 17, 2019 at 12:06 pm,
        Big Al says:

        If that space is so tiny, how could it possibly blow away the Dow/S&P? It simply cannot do that and really never could. If has however; to a minor extent in the past. But only to a minor extent.

        • On February 17, 2019 at 4:32 pm,
          Matthew says:

          Al, the gold mining sector will move more easily than the Dow because it has a lot less room for big money to flow into it. Between 2002 and 2011, the HUI Gold Bugs Index went up almost ten times as much as the Dow. So the tiny space can and routinely does blow away the Dow/S&P —and to a MAJOR extent.

            I realize that Matthew. I don’t think that I said that it would not. But then again, Matthew I have not been diagnosed with dementia ,but sometimes I do feel like it.

      I think a lot of people don’t remember that the stock market and gold stocks moved up together last decade. Of course, the gold stocks provided about ten times the return…

    The senior gold stocks are up 30% since their September low and now look ready to go significantly higher. Even most bulls are underinvested and they will now be forced to compete with short-covering bears.

    Dick Tracy says:

    There is also the fact that America is a nation of addicts. If you take away their liquor as in Prohibition, they drink more. If The Stock Market starts to steadily decline they think it is a great buying opportunity and they set up a margin account with their broker or a home equity line of credit from the bank to keep the party going. Like Al Capone said, “I am a businessman who supplies a need.” If The Democrats ban guns the people will buy 3D printers and manufacture their own weapons. Then they will have a nation of people carrying guns that can’t be traced. Human nature will get what it wants when it wants, particularly if our brains are predisposed. DT

      That is so true and a very good point in this case, Mr. Tracy.

      MAGA army is upset . . . here’s where we lose. If people really do walk away, and they don’t come back and they don’t listen anymore . . . and say I am tuning everything out, are setting themselves up to be some of the first victims of the Deep State. This is a propaganda psyop that the Deep State is trying to run about this bill. Where we also lose is if President Trump supporter’s shut up and don’t say look boss, this was not good. Good job on the wall that is being built and good job on getting the money for the wall, but you messed up on the logistics. . . . You gave human traffickers an opening here, boss (Trump). Whoever told you that you had to sign this bill, never listen to them again.”

        I find it very difficult to believe that your and my MAGA army would really do that. I can assure you, Jerry, that I firmly believe in the MAGA philosophy as it represents my reasons for supporting Trump both philosophically and monetarily.

      Two Trump Cabinet officials were “ready to support” a DOJ scheme to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump, according to Bloomberg and Fox News, citing closed-door testimony from the FBI’s former top lawyer, James Baker – who said that the claim came from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

      The testimony was delivered last fall to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Fox News has confirmed portions of the transcript. It provides additional insight into discussions that have returned to the spotlight in Washington as fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe revisits the matter during interviews promoting his forthcoming book. -Fox News

          They get their book deals because the news is sensational and everyone will buy their books because they are portrayed as being credible.

      If I am not mistaken, the testimony was delivered last Fall and to date nothing has happened. My personal opinion is that Trump is simply a few steps ahead of these guys. What do you think about that?
