    Dems: Kill the economy to win the election. That summarizes the Left’s grand strategy to Communize the country.  Yes, proles, we’re all in the together, and you need Communism — led by us Antifascists — to save you.  Bring in the outhouse world to help get rid of Whitey, starting with the Satanic Hitlerian, Trump.  With us in command you will experience the Workers’ Paradise.  With everything free and without work.

    The Democrats are already wielding their power in the realms they reign.  The state with the Batman’s-Joker-faced governess, Whitmer, and coastal states east and west, are imprisoning large numbers of their populations.  All in the name of salvation by “science.”

    So enjoy your new poverty or die.  Never mind DeepState criminality or the self-enrichment by Basement Biden and his family.  Don’t worry, smile and be happy.  And obey.

    Obama legacy is crashing and burning in a huge failure of corruption and illegality. One lady as exposed this crime of one man and his cabal the best. You can trash the American of things but then there is this beacon of meaning that comes out of this American failure:

    “Flynn’s Lawyer Excoriates Obama In Open Letter”

    “Last week, former President Barack Obama reacted to the DOJ’s move to end its case against Michael Flynn by declaring in a leaked private phone call that the “rule of law is at risk,” and that “there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.” “That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places,” said the former President. On Wednesday, Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell punched back – correcting Obama’s inaccurate diatribe, while managing to drop MOABs on his “wingman” – former Attorney General Eric Holder, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch and others. It’s quite the read.”

    “Hunger Pandemic: Visualizing COVID-19’s Effect On Global Food Insecurity”

    “While COVID-19 is dominating headlines, another kind of emergency is threatening the lives of millions of people around the world – food insecurity. However, as Visual Capitalist’s Iman Ghosh notes, the two are very much intertwined. By the end of 2020, authorities estimate that upwards of 265 million people could be on the brink of starvation globally, almost double the current rate of crisis-level food insecurity. Today’s visualizations use data from the fourth annual Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC 2020) to demonstrate the growing scale of the current situation, as well as its intense concentration in just 55 countries around the globe.”

    “Laut dem Monthly Treasury Statement des US-Finanzministeriums erzielte der US-Bundeshaushalt (Federal Budget) im April 2020 ein Haushaltsdefizit in Höhe von -737,851 Mrd. Dollar.“”

    “According to the US Treasury’s Monthly Treasury Statement, the US federal budget had a budget deficit of $ 737.851 billion in April 2020.””

    I listened through the podcast but learned nothing from it. Two smart Jewish folks in despair about the developing situation with corona and shale oil. But in the end of the day they are more American than Jewish, as they are completely unable to think outside of the oil drum.

    In horticulture there is a practice that you can increase the well-being and longevity of a plant by pruning it back. That could apply to entire human cultures as well. The very fact that the West could “fall back to the seventies” is seen by mr. Berman as a “disaster”. I beg to differ. Prune it back as it will solve a lot of problems. Oh and mr Berman, we were quite happy in the seventies, thank you very much:

    The most striking aspect about this talk is the complete absence of any clue about a way forward. They are looking like paralyzed rabbits, staring into the poachers light, waiting for the inevitable blow on the head. There is no difference with these two people or Donald Trump or Alex Jones or Michael Moore or most of the posters on this board: they all share the same dead wrong conviction that there is no civilizational light after the sun will have set over the oil age.

    America = life = oil.


    They managed to talk about the end of oil without even mentioning it’s inevitable and very viable successor: renewable energy. For them it doesn’t exist, or if they do have a grasp, like Michael Moore, they talk it into the ground.

    Storm clouds gathering:

    “Fears of global trade war with China after Beijing slaps 80 per cent tariff on Australian exports starting TODAY as brutal payback over country’s call for coronavirus inquiry backed by 100 nations including the UK”

    Australia setting itself up for disaster.

    Europe and Russia won’t participate in an anti-Chinese trade war.

    Not that the Anglos can afford free trade much longer:

    Current account balance:

    EU +202B
    Japan +195B
    China +164B
    Russia +40B

    Australia -32B
    Canada -49B
    UK -107B
    US -466B

    Giving the rest of the world the “Germany-treatment”, like in 1914/1939, is no longer an option for Anglosphere. The only real option is abdication from Anglo-supremacy. One way or the other. Your pick.

    OH, dear we have the cloggo cherry picking economic information he is clueless about yet again. This is something I have rebutted maybe 20 times over the years. The reason cloggo grabs these numbers is he is a goal seeker with numbers. He uses numbers that have the appearance of an argument but he does not understand what is behind them.

  14. Davy on Tue, 19th May 2020 5:37 am 

    “Europe and Russia won’t participate in an anti-Chinese trade war.”

    Europe is showing itself to be spineless. They know China is a problem but their decision committees get int he way.

  15. REAL Green on Tue, 19th May 2020 6:46 am 

    We just lost another debate again Davy. And were to stupid to no why. The cloggo kicked are as.
