Kunstler: The Unspooling

Public Policy

With spring, things come unstuck; an unspooling has begun. The turnaround at the FBI and Department of Justice has been so swift that even The New York Times has shut up about collusion with Russia — at the same time omitting to report what appears to have been a wholly politicized FBI upper echelon intruding on the 2016 election campaign, and then laboring stealthily to un-do the election result.

The ominous silence enveloping the DOJ the week after Andrew McCabe’s firing — and before the release of the FBI Inspector General’s report — suggests to me that a grand jury is about to convene and indictments are in process, not necessarily from Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s office. The evidence already publicly-aired about FBI machinations and interventions on behalf of Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump looks bad from any angle, and the wonder was that it took so long for anyone at the agency to answer for it.

McCabe is gone from office and, apparently hung out to dry on the recommendation of his own colleagues. Do not think for a moment that he will just ride off into the sunset. Meanwhile, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, have been sent to the FBI study hall pending some other shoes dropping in a grand jury room. James Comey is out hustling a book he slapped together to manage the optics of his own legal predicament (evidently, lying to a congressional committee). And way out in orbit beyond the gravitation of the FBI, lurk those two other scoundrels, John Brennan, former head of the CIA (now a CNN blabbermouth), and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, a new and redundant post in the Deep State’s intel matrix (and ditto a CNN blabbermouth). Brennan especially has been provoked to issue blunt Twitter threats against Mr. Trump, suggesting he might be entering a legal squeeze himself.

None of these public servants have cut a plea bargain yet, as far as is publicly known, but they are all, for sure, in a lot of trouble. Culpability may not stop with them. Tendrils of evidence point to a coordinated campaign that included the Obama White House and the Democratic National Committee starring Hillary Clinton. Robert Mueller even comes into the picture both at the Uranium One end of the story and the other end concerning the activities of his old friend, Mr. Comey. Most tellingly of all, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was not shoved out of office but remains shrouded in silence and mystery as this melodrama plays out, tick, tick, tick.

None of this makes President Trump a more reassuring figure. His lack of decorum remains as awesome as his apparent lack of common sense. But he has labored against the most intense campaign of coordinated calumny ever seen against a chief executive and his fortitude, at least, is impressive. What is unspooling for him, and the body politic, are the nation’s finances, and the dog of an economy that gets wagged by finance. Yesterday’s 724-point dump in the Dow Jones Industrial Average is liable to not be a fluke event, but the beginning of a cascade into the pitiless maw of reality — the reality that just about everything is grossly mispriced.

There is plenty of dysfunction in plain sight to suggest that the financial markets can’t bear the strain of unreality anymore. Between the burgeoning trade wars and the adoption in congress this week of a fiscally suicidal spending bill, you’d want to put your fingers in your ears to not be deafened by the roar of markets tumbling. A 40 to 75 percent drop in the equity markets will leave a lot of one-percent big fish gasping on the beach as the tide rolls out. But the minnows and anchovies will suffer too, as regular economic activity declines in response to tumbling markets. And then the Federal Reserve will ride to the rescue with QE-4, which will very sharply drive the dollar toward worthlessness. The result: a nation with a sucking chest wound, whirling around the drain en route to political pandemonium.

    What am I lying about? I showed the facts that their isn’t a mass immigration issue..and I am not a liberal I am a human.Sorry I dont buy into your scare mongering. Maybe you should go back to milking your goats. Since you dont seem to have a clue what you are even arguing about.

  2. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 12:23 pm 

    You are lying to yourself that your side is right and the other wrong.

    “I showed the facts”

    You didn’t show shit. You act like the number of immigrants matter. It more than high or low numbers it is about too many people now and any amount of immigration is problematic. Some is required if we are to continue globalization but not what is happening these days.

    Don’t have milk goats, mm. I raise registered breeding stock. I also have cattle.

  3. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 12:39 pm 

    Greg

    If the numbers don’t matter then why do you even care? You are in such denial and doublethink you aren’t even making sense.. And I did show shit and here i will show you again…

    https://imgur.com/a/cgKTh

    And this is the last time I argue about this subject with you. Ill tell you just like i told boat. IF you want to waste you time worried about illegal immigrants who dont even want to come to this shit hole country anymore. And legal immigrant who boost our economy and are coming in at less than a half percent a year. Go right the fuck ahead. I have more important issues to worry about. just wait till the oil crisis hits you will look back at the days you were worried about immigrants like the glory years…LOL

  4. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 1:11 pm 

    Mm

    What is up with you wanting to over populate when your doomer tirades have the world running out of oil very soon. Doesn’t your brain trigger that this is inconsistent.

  5. Cloggie on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 1:34 pm 

    “A world wide ban on immigration would extend them. Are you a closet undertaker looking for business?”

    Millimind thinks he is a Trotsky, in need of a proletariate, with which he hopes to wage a revolution against whitey.

    That would be you, boat.

    These people never change. He pretends to be a bleeding heart soft liberal, but what he really is is a genocidal bolshevik. You haven’t a clue of the danger you are in. That’s what you get if you consider studying history a waste of time.

  6. Cloggie on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 1:40 pm 

    “Go right the fuck ahead. I have more important issues to worry about. just wait till the oil crisis hits you”

    Yabut, the pear-reviewed university of Chicago, as repeatedly quoted by you, has said that the world will never stop using oil. Have you any idea how many Nobel-prices these folks have won? It’s obscene. Can’t you get your stories straight?

  7. DerHundistlos on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:05 pm 

    OMG, not again!!!!!

    “I am not right or left. I ridicule the right and left.”

    Since when???????

    Then, “You are a blind lying liberal like so many other here.”

    Now, that’s more like it. Back to reality.

  8. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:18 pm 

    Boat

    If I thought keeping immigrants out would make a difference to our oil crisis coming. I would agree with you..We are adding around one million immigrants a year. And there are around 250 million ICE owners..So its such a small amount its not going to knock off any oil demand. Just like EV’s!

  9. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:28 pm 

    Der Hund. Did you change your depends?

  10. GregT on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:28 pm 

    MM,

    “Greg, If the numbers don’t matter then why do you even care?”

    I’m not the racist here. That would be Davy and Boat that you’re arguing with.

  11. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:34 pm 

    Greggie, quite the lying. Your are a closet Nazi who supports, enables, and covers for the big cheese card carrying Nazi, nedernazi. You are an extremist anti-American west coast Canadian that stalks and pricks Americans exclusively. That is your sick perverted specialty. How can that pig take lipstick?

  12. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:35 pm

    Sorry.. I didnt mean to say your name…I just didnt correct it because I assumed Davy would know that comment was for him…Allow me to buy you a drink for that mistake…I think this one is right up your alley!

    “Your are a closet Nazi who supports, enables, and covers for the big cheese card carrying Nazi, nedernazi”

    Could you give us a rational definition of what it means in 2018 to be a “nazi”?

    Is it somebody who is against mass-immigration from the third world? If so, then I am a nazi.

    But hey, so are you, as you admitted you are against that too.

    Now tell me Davy-boy… when did you discover you are a nazi? Does your family know it? The local police, the ADL?

  14. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:49 pm 

    Nedernazi you are a lying white supremist. Are you a skinhead too. I bet you shave your monkey also. Lol

  15. GregT on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:52 pm 

    “I’m not the racist here. That would be Davy and Boat that you’re arguing with.’

    I might add, both of whom come from immigrant families.

  16. GregT on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 2:55 pm 

    “I bet you shave your monkey also.”

    So now Cloggie owns a monkey too? Your delusions just keep getting more and more insane Davy.

  17. Cloggie on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 3:07 pm 

    “Nedernazi you are a lying white supremist. Are you a skinhead too. I bet you shave your monkey also. Lol”

    I don’t want to give my country away to hostile foreigners. How does that make me a “white supremacist”? You do realize that you are parroting ADL-vocabulary, the very people who are busy organizing the demise of European-America. Your demise.

    But you know that you lost your country, America is gone. Below 20 only 46% is European. Now how do you think this will play out? You seriously think that this will end well? Of course not, there is a reason you are a doomer, but you are too pc to openly acknowledge the truth, so you hide behind “peak oil” and “climate change”, serious long term problems for sure, but they won’t bite in the remainder of your life time. No, you are a doomer, because you know this will end in tragedy. America is gone because there are too many spineless idiots like you, Davy, who are too lame to defend their country.. I’d rather be called a Natzi than having to fight a civil war, or in your case, cowardly run off to ultra-white Italy. Your mental development stopped when you were 12 years old, fake prepper and all that remains for you to do is juvenile name-calling. Poor Davy, he has no country he can call his home. It was slipped away from under his feet like a rug. Now he thinks he belongs to the 1-percent of this Washington run terrorist organization. Now WW3 is next. Davy against the rest of the world.

  18. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 3:17 pm 

    The two Nazis join hands or hold hands, how sweet. Greggie did the same thing with billy 3rd world. I guess with his boyfriend awol it is you nedernazi he wants a relationship with now. Greggie is a chameleon. He takes on the personality of his boyfriends.

  19. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 3:17 pm 

    Mm, greggiet

    This influx of immigrants adds up over a generation. There are more foreign born immigrants than there are Canadians.
    I am about steps towards sustainability. Ending immigration is just an obvious step.

  20. GregT on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 3:39 pm 

    “I am about steps towards sustainability.”

    As mentioned numerous times before Boat, population overshoot is a global problem, not a regional one. It won’t make any difference in the long run, whether you racist Trump supporters build your wall, or not.

  21. Cloggie on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 3:52 pm 

    “I am about steps towards sustainability. Ending immigration is just an obvious step.”

    Very wise boat. The bad news is that your voice doesn’t count. Your (((owners))) have decided that whitey needs to go:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2017/09/27/paul-krugman-white-americans-are-losing-their-country/

    And the deep state (your owners) are too powerful, even for president Trump. Immigration will never stop until their numbers are big enough to attempt the US-equivalent of the 1917 Petersburg revolution. This time the revolutionaries will be mixed white/coloreds, against the once white majority.

    You see boat, that is why the Germans put them on the train to the East. But like the 1917 Russians, present day Americans lack the resolve and understanding of the situation to do the same. Americans are in strength somewhere between the 1933-Germans and 1917-Russians vis-a-vis J-power. They are still protected by their western-European strength Constitution, but that institution is eroding fast. It is going to be a close call between America becoming the next USSR or European-America managing to escape from the grip of Washington.

    WW3 is coming in which America will finally be driven from Eurasia. The question remains open if Eurasians will manage to make it onto North-American soil in order to provide Washington a “Carthagenian Peace”. If European-Americans fail to rise up, nothing can be done and Orwell’s worldview as presented in “1984” will become reality:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/which-future-world/

    Obviously we should aim for an identitarian “Huntingtonian world”.

  22. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:14 pm 

    “As mentioned numerous times before Boat, population overshoot is a global problem, not a regional one.”

    wrong, greggie, the worst is in Asia but you are an Asiaphile so you won’t admit this.

  23. Davy on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:16 pm 

    the nedernazi is back at explaining modern current events with WWII history revisions. What a intellectually lacking effort from a lame brain. You look so stupid nedernazi when you do this and you do this daily with your same wordpress links.

  24. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:17 pm 

    greggiet

    Your memory is fading. No wall needed. Just arrest those who hire ileagles. That is a law here in the US. Let’s just follow the rules of law.

  25. Anonymouse1 on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:21 pm 

    What do you have against ill eagles boatietard? I thought that was your national bird or something. Is deporting sick eagles supposed to make amerika great again boatretard?

  26. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:25 pm 

    Boat

    We dont have another generation or two left. I wish you were just honest. And would say you dont want any minorities in the country. you want an all white aryan nation like Hitler…I mean I can respect honestly even if I disagree with the concept..I mean I dont expect you to be Gandhi for Christ sake. You are from a state where the state executes woman and the mentally challenged. So no need to be a fake. At least clogg has the guts to be an openly racist low life…

  27. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:27 pm 

    Part of my own vision for climate change Dynamics is the increasing amounts of death will drive continents and trade inward. You need food? Sorry, we need the water. Smaller populations will become a goal and it will be about sustainability, not racism. Throw in AI and robotics, and who needs most of the world.

  28. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:29 pm

    You must be child on his mommy’s computer…Just arrest “Those”? Right there is your problem boat..Do you know who ‘Those” corporations are? They run the show in this country and the Swamp. Not the people anymore. And they are not going to ever allow that to happen. Since it would be counter productive to their corporations bottom lines.

  29. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:31 pm 

    Your right Boat..And what about asteroid mining with nano bots? Future’s so bright!

  30. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:35 pm 

    Mm

    Sending ileagel immigrants home from every country works for me. Not letting in another white works for me. Even the Swedes with their great potato sausage would no longer be welcome.

  31. joe on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:36 pm 


    Sure, Joe. It’s those damn niggers and spics and dope smoking kids and liberals to blame. How dare they rise up against your Dear Leader. Oh, the outrage of it.”

    Please don’t get me wrong. Trump is not my dear leader. Also you should read what I wrote. I haven’t blamed anyone for anything. I just think it’s funny that the left was so happy that Facebook elected Obama and then Facebook hid its face when it elected Trump and the overseers of the left kept quiet and organised a campaign to blame RUSSIA. Its amusing to me just how gullible Americans are, they cant think for themselves, you just pick groups to belong to and devot yourselves forever to that group and idealise it like the Muslim’s do for their prophet. Its childish and sad, but also very dangerous. You are as brainwashed as any Putin devotee.

  32. Boat on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:48 pm 

    Mm

    I realise you have problems wrapping your head around obvious sustainability steps needed by all countries for the greater good of all. Go find another peer reviewed study that for tells collaspe and how more immigrants chewing up the earth helps.

  33. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:48 pm 

    Boat

    You are grasping at straws I feel. one million immigrants a year isn’t enough people to make a difference in a country of 325 million people. New York city alone has around 60 million people. The US is the third most populated country on earth. If we were taking in like 10 million people a year or more I might agree with you. My point is that even if they stopped all immigrants from coming in we have already blown pat the point of no return. A better option would be to offer free abortions and birth control to anyone who wants it. But we cant do that because of the church..That is why there is no solution but collapse…

  34. MASTERMIND on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 4:51 pm 

    Jesus christ now we have another Trump supporter on this blog Joe..What is with this site attracting the dumbest of the dumb…i guess people on the right are more prone to doom subjects because they are all religious nut jobs!

  35. joe on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 5:05 pm 

    Few of us will ever realise or understand just how much each of us are monitored and how our news is just ‘fake news’. They hated Trump because he pointed out reality. Trump got elected to his suprise and then he realised what he was really up against. He caved in early and I started calling him a marshmallow for which a received some abuse. Now he turning ever more to the swamp he sword to drain because they were able to use the lefts unconstitutional attack on him to leave themselves as his only defenders.

  36. Cloggie on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 5:52 pm 

    “I guess people on the right are more prone to doom subjects because they are all religious nut jobs!“

    So when did you discover you are a rightwing religeous nutjob, millimind, since you are doomer #1 here.

    Trump didn’t win the election it was hacked by an unknown source. Could be any of the rich and powerful And look what they got for their services! A huge tax cut for the one percent! and increased military funding during peace times. And more troops in the middle east! The deep states greatest wet dream come true! The exit polls proved Hillary won all the battleground states easily. And not one state the exit polls showed Trump ahead and hillary won the state.

    We will just have to disagree. I think that you should really thank God you got Trump and not Killary. Seriously. I watched a documentary about Wacko, there were Delta force (cag) officers on site. Only the US president can tell them what to do. She helped Bill cover up the murder of children at Waco. Shocking stuff. Makes murdering Gaddafi and leaving the American Libyan ambassador out to hang seems kind tame, let’s not forget that Libyan guns helped found ISIS. They are all psychos. Trump, Killary, Blair, all of them.
