Kunstler: Cascading Cat Litter

Public Policy

And so now Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been dragged out of his sanctuary in the London embassy of Ecuador for failing to clean his cat’s litter box. Have you ever cleaned a litter box? The way we always did it was to spread some newspaper — say, The New York Times — on the floor, transfer the used cat litter onto it, wrap it into a compact package, and put it in the trash.

It was interesting to scan the Comments section of The Times’s stories about the Assange arrest: Times readers uniformly presented themselves as a lynch mob out for Mr. Assange’s blood. So much for the spirit of liberalism and The Old Gray Lady who had published The Pentagon Papers purloined by Daniel Ellsberg lo so many years ago. Reading between the lines in that once-venerable newspaper — by which I mean gleaning their slant on the news — one surmises that The Times has actually come out against freedom of the press, a curious attitude, but consistent with the neo-Jacobin zeitgeist in “blue” America these days.

Anyway, how could anyone expect Mr. Assange to clean his cat’s litter box when he was unable to go outside his sanctuary to buy a fresh bag of litter, and was denied newspapers this past year, as well as any other contact with the outside world?

US government prosecutors had better tread lightly in bringing Mr. Assange to the sort of justice demanded by readers of The New York Times — which is to say: lock him up in some SuperMax solitary hellhole and throw away the key. The show trial of Julian Assange on US soil, when it comes to pass, may end up being the straw that stirs America’s Mickey Finn as a legitimate republic.

The bloodthirsty hysteria among New York Times readers is a symptom of the mass confusion sown by agencies of the US government itself when its own agents ventured to meddle in the national election of 2016 and then blame it on “the Russians.” As you will learn in the months ahead, it was The Times itself, and other corporate news organizations, who colluded with officers of the FBI, the Department of Justice, the CIA, and the Obama White House to concoct a phony narrative about Mr. Trump being in cahoots with Vladimir Putin, thus depriving Hillary Clinton of her “turn” in the White House; and then to join those agencies, and the grotesquely dishonest two-year investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in a cover-your-ass operation to hide their nefarious and criminal acts.

The USA has a lot of sorting to do and, of course, the new Democratic-led congress is already trying as hard as possible to prevent that from happening, the latest being their piling on Attorney General William Barr for testifying under oath that he believed the government ran a spying operation on candidate Donald Trump. The existence of FISA warrants establishes that as a fact, as does the million dollar payment by the CIA and US Defense Department to international man of mystery Stephan Halper, the secret agent man (posing as an Oxford professor) commissioned to entrap Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The ugly cascade of truth about that ploy, and many other seditious subterfuges run by US officials, will eventually bury the Jacobin “resistance” under more used cat litter than the Ecuadorian embassy staff could ever dream of.

The official charges so far against Julian Assange include skipping bail in the UK and supposedly attempting to assist the US soldier then known as Bradley Manning to find a password for entering certain US government computer data bases. The UK bail matter revolved around Assange’s extradition to Sweden on a bullshit rape charge that was subsequently dropped as having no merit by Swedish authorities. The US supposedly reserves the authority to lob additional charges at Mr. Assange, though they may face a lengthy extradition battle with his attorneys to lever him out of the UK and into US custody. In the meantime, Mr. Assange may receive a Nobel Prize as a symbol of a lone conscience standing up against the despotic deceits of the world’s deep states. Wouldn’t that gum up the works nicely? I’d like to see The New York Times’s front page headline on that story: Russian Colluder Wins Nobel Prize, Put on Trial in Federal Court. By then, the United States of America will be so completely gaslighted that it will pulsate in the darkness like a death star about to explode.

    Pussy Assange will blab in exchange for dropped charges. W/Leaks has plenty of juicy bits on the Trump Campaign. There is no way the current US
    Att. General Barr will make more than a cursory effort to bring Assange to the US (like ever).

    (the big) However. Trump has major enemies in the UK and Sweden. He faces a year for bail jumping. Swedish cops are thinking about reviving rape charges, If he wants to avoid further detention he’ll sing like a rat.

    Lots of Conservative AND Lib Pols in the UK blame Trump style ultra nationalism for their own screw-ups around Brexit.

    Trump still has OVER 15 state and federal investigations pending. Somewhere in that moras
    is proof of his Russian connections.
    J. Assange will be a big help connecting the dots.

    The bribe-ocratic Dems want to destroy the country.  With the help of slave-demanding and profoundly venal RINOs (Republicans In Name Only), that is.  Whenever Trump or anyone else talks about a wall or other physical barrier against the tsunami of invading low-IQ trash, the Dems+RINOs change the topic to “comprehensive immigration reform,” or other euphemisms for importing illegal parasites who vote Democrat (and, yes, the Dems will make sure they can vote).  There is now doubt that now, quite apart from the pro-illegal screaming, the sob stories, and screeching, “Jesus wants you to breed more stupidoes,” the United States is already past the point of no return on the path to decline and collapse.

    The founding fathers hoped that, by dividing the governing organization into three different branches (Legislative, Judicial, and Executive), they could establish a system where those branches would counteract and form checks on one another, thus providing governmental stability and avoiding totalitarianism.  It worked partially for two centuries.  But then the invention of baseless, unfounded monetary inflation took over, and megabillionaires (e.g., Georg Sörös & co-conspirators) bribed the Legislators and presidential aspirants, and corruption overcame the plan.  Moreover, the world’s central banks, led by the U.S. Federal Reserve, deprived currency (in particular the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency) of backing by anything of worth whatsoever.  The dollar became, in other words, simply a plaything of the potentates in power.  Which means it is today nothing more than a tool for clandestine inflation in order to preserve the reign of the current powerholders.  The fraudulent phrase “full faith and credit of the U.S.” means in fact the gullibility of the swindled American masses.

    Then there is the fact that the new hypersonic and space-based weaponry developed by Russia and China have already made the U.S. militarily inferior at the strategic level.  The masses just don’t know this fact yet, nor do the elites make it widely known, despite the fact that the spendthrift U.S. military keeps lobbying Congress for more money to address it.  Instead, the Administration and other bobbleheads talk about going to Mars and engaging in similar fancies in order to divert the boobs who do the voting.

    None of the above includes the various global environmental concerns such as universal poisoning due to discarded plastics, exposed and leaking nuclear waste in “temporary” storage sites, devastation due to nuclear plant accidents (Chernobyl, Fukushima), mass human-caused extinctions of fauna and flora, and so forth.  Or the grotesque population explosion among the lowest-IQ subspecies of homo sapiens on the planet.

    But then, when worlds collide, the oligarchs and overlords will all be safe and secure in their bunkers.  Or so they think.

All comfortable in their lifetime career of greed with lavish retirement plans if they actually retire. Most die in office.

    UKIP split the labour vote before. It’s likely to do it again. The Torys need to think about who their real opposition is. Red Jeremys blanket support for a soft brexit without a confirming referendum will not work. Theres plenty of road left in this saga. May knows she doesn’t have to budge and she can split labour eventually, she has 6 months and an EU referendum. Losing seats with a tory government with say, 10 DUP votes and an extra few ‘Brexit party’ votes could put no deal right back on the table. With a more right wing anti immigration eu parliament eager to rip the EU a new one, then the landscape for a northern ireland border will make sense. Merkel is making g promises she knows she will not be in office to have to keep, all this Ireland love is fake.

    The only ones who have actually come out and made breaking the Belfast agreement a red line is the Trump government.

  49. Davy on Sun, 14th Apr 2019 12:07 pm 

    Kunstler is a liberal at heart disillusioned by the corruption of liberal America through the Democratic Party. He has proven himself as an honest broker of collapse. PO Collapse is not the same animal as it was in 2005 when he did much of his best work. He has changed as other doomers like myself have changed. He still sees collapse on multiple fronts happening in a process of decline. He has spent a great deal of time on politics lately because it represents the newest aspect of a collapsing America. Honesty should not be tied to party lines.
