Kunstler: Wokester’s Nightmare

Public Policy

The tides are shifting. Something’s in the wind. And it’s not just the fecund vapors of spring. The political soap opera of RussiaGate ended like a fart in a windstorm last weekend, leaving Mr. Mueller’s cheerleaders de-witched, bothered, and bewildered. And then a crude attempt was made to cram the Jussie Smollett case down Chicago’s memory hole. These two unrelated hoaxes emanating out of Wokester Land may signal something momentous: the end of the era when anything goes and nothing matters.

Welcome to the new era of consequences! All of a sudden, a whole lot of people who have been punking the public-at-large will have to answer for their behavior. Despite the fog of misdirection blowing out of The New York Times, The WashPo, CNN, and MSNBC, it’s become obvious that the RussiaGate hoax was kicked off by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and a cabal of Obama appointees in several executive agencies. The evidence is public, fully documented, and overwhelming that the so-called Steele Dossier was the sole animating instrument in both the 2016 pre-election effort to incriminate the Golden Golem of Greatness, and the Mueller Investigation launched post-election to cover-up those same political misdeeds of the Clinton campaign, the FBI, the Department of Justice, the CIA, NSA, and State Department.

It’s also very likely that Robert Mueller learned that the Steele Dossier was a fraud in the summer of 2017, if not shortly after his appointment in May of that year, and yet he dragged out his investigation for almost two years in order to defame and antagonize Mr. Trump — and deflect attention from the ugly truth of the matter. It is certain Mr. Mueller knew that the Steele Dossier was purchased by Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS political “research” company, which was simultaneously in the paid employ of Mrs. Clinton and the Russian political lobbying agency Prevezon (as reported by Sean Davis in The Federalist). If the FBI brass did not bring that to Mr. Mueller’s attention right away, then either their incompetence is epic or they are criminally liable for concealing the hoax.

There is your essential collusion, and a lot of participants are going down because of it. Mr. Mueller himself should be summoned to a grand jury to answer for his deceitful inquisition, his abuse of FISA warrants, and the malicious prosecutions of General Michael Flynn and Trump campaign supernumerary George Papadopoulos. This story is far from over and it is now moving in the opposite direction. Former CIA Director John Brennan is going down for chaperoning the Steele Dossier through congress, the FBI, and the news media. And many others will follow. It will go very hard on the claque of lunatics like Rep. Adam Schiff and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow as the painful consequences unspool. The Democratic presidential hopefuls will have to run shrieking from this giant hairball, but it will roll over them anyway and possibly even flatten their party.

In another instance of justice miscarried, charges in the Jussie Smollett racial attack hoax were dismissed in a hasty, unannounced motion by the assistant to Cook County Prosecutor Kim Foxx, who had pretended to recuse herself from the case, but actually did not follow the proper procedure for doing it. Ms. Foxx has apparently been consorting with members of Jussie Smollett’s family and with Michele Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, a Chicago political operator. It’s easy to imagine what they were bargaining about: the fear that Mr. Smollett would have a very hard time serving any sort of prison sentence, given his celebrity status, his sexual orientation, and the laughable idiocy of his crime. It was probably a reasonable fear — but not a viable excuse for summarily dropping the case. The further excuse that he had already paid the price by hanging out in Jessie Jackson’s Operation Push headquarters for two days is also a joke, of course.

The Chicago police chief and mayor objected loudly, as did the Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association, which declared the move was “abnormal and unfamiliar to those who practice law in criminal courthouses across the State.” An understatement for sure. What’s next for Jussie? The City of Chicago will tote up the cost of investigating his stupid prank and haul him into civil court to compel him to pay for it.

Further and greater consequences will emanate from the Smollett hoax. Despite former Vice-president Joe Biden’s recent lamentations over the wickedness of “white man’s culture,” many American’s will show a renewed interest in that hoary old system devised by white folks called Anglo-American law, which includes such niceties as due process. The Jussie Smollett scam may be the end of many intersectional culture heroes getting a free pass on their bad behavior. Won’t that be refreshing?

    “Brexit’s Message To The European Union”
    Authored by Amir Tehari via The Gatestone Institute,

    “The first problem with the EU is that, though it is called a union, it isn’t really one. To be sure it has a flag, an anthem, a parliament, a council of ministers, and even pseudo-embassies in many countries, but despite such trappings of a state, the EU is essentially an economic club; not a state. Even then, the EU is basically concerned with two branches of the economy: industry and agriculture, sectors that represent around 32 percent of the combined gross domestic product (GDP) of the 28 member states. In the case of Britain, which is primarily a service-based economy, industry and agriculture account for around 25 percent of GDP.”

    “The EU’s member states represent many different historical memories and experiences. The British are shaped by two centuries of colonial experience, followed by a brief flirtation with social-democracy morphing into the Thatcherite version of capitalism…Germany and Austria pride themselves in their “social market” economic model…Italy, and to a lesser extent Greece, Spain and Portugal have a “black-and-white” model in which the unofficial or black economy is almost as big as the official one. The Benelux three, Belgium, Holland, and Luxembourg have lived with what they call “social capitalism” — a system in which the principal role of the state is redistributing the wealth created. France, depending on the party in power at any given time, has vacillated between the German-Austrian and the Benelux models. The Central and Eastern European members were all parts of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet-dominated Comecon .”

    “The 28 member states also have different political systems, ranging from traditional monarchies to republics with a revolutionary background and nations emerging from the debris of empires. They also have long histories of enmities with one another.”

    “Brexit has highlighted the key challenges that the EU faces. The first challenge concerns a widespread overestimation of the EU’s role. This is due to its perception as a supra-national state which it certainly is not…The EU is also facing the challenge posed by the return of the nation-state as the most popular model of socio-political organization across the globe. Right now all supra-national and/or international organizations, from the United Nations to NATO, are regarded with suspicion, if not outright hostility, not only in Europe but also throughout the world.EU leaders and those who support it would do well to offer a more modest and realistic image of the union as an economic club concerned with just certain aspects of its members’ economies and not as a putative “United States of Europe.” The EU has been pretending to be a machine trying to impose uniformity on nations that have always prided themselves in their specificity. It may survive and even prosper if it works for unity in diversity. Even if it never actually happens, the message of Brexit to the EU is: Pull down thy vanity!”

    “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a fan of a geeky economic theory called MMT: Here’s a plain-English guide to what it is and why it’s interesting” business insider

    “Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) should be “a larger part of the conversation” in an interview with Insider in January. MMT is a big departure from conventional economic theory. It proposes governments that control their own currency can spend freely, as they can always create more money to pay off debts in their own currency. The theory suggests government spending can grow the economy to its full capacity, enrich the private sector, eliminate unemployment, and finance major programs such as universal healthcare, free college tuition, and green energy. If the spending generates a government deficit, this isn’t a problem either. The government’s deficit is by definition the private sector’s surplus…MMT proponents argue governments can control inflation by spending less or withdrawing money from the economy through taxes. Needless to say, traditional economists have some issues with all this.”

    “Enter the bond market vigilantes There is an elephant in the room which we have avoided discussing so far, and that is the bond and foreign currency markets. Countries aren’t economic islands. Their economies are linked to their neighbours and worldwide trading partners. Even if everything MMT proposed were true, and money creation and deficit spending were not inflationary at the national level, runaway inflation might still kick in if foreign investors decide that MMT is going to make your nation’s currency worthless, your government bankrupt, and your central bank default. Bond, credit, and foreign exchange investors essentially make bets on the health of national economies — and their currencies — by buying and selling government debt, and currency, based on how risky it appears to be. The FX markets might decide they don’t want to hold the currency of a country that is printing money to pay its own bills. The bond markets might decide they don’t want to buy the debt of a country that has no intention of curbing its deficits. The flight of their capital out of your country, coupled with short bets against your assets, might devalue your domestic currency on the international markets.”

    “Political bias: If the central bank follows the government’s direction, it could face accusations of political bias or corruption, erode people’s trust in financial regulators, and struggle to make painful decisions in the short term that benefit the economy in the long term. Lack of discipline: The government might not spot when the economy has reached full capacity, or lack the discipline to stop spending, leading to inflation. Politically impractical: Relying on taxation to extract money from the economy and cool it down could well be politically infeasible in countries where tax hikes are deeply unpopular, such as the US. Tax policy already has an important role: Tax policy plays an important role in redistributing money from the wealthy to the poor. Supply-side shocks are a problem: A supply-side shock such as a spike in the oil price could reduce economic growth but with rising prices. Raising taxes in this case could worsen the economic slowdown and increase unemployment. Foreign debt: If the government holds a significant amount of debt in another currency, printing money and depreciating its currency could make that debt harder to pay off and even force it to default. FX markets maybe skeptical: Printing money with reckless abandon could also make investors wary of currency volatility and inflation, leading them to ditch the currency for foreign exchange, gold, and other assets.”

    Kuntler writes all this as if it really matters.

    I think we are past Peak Kunstler and are sliding down the Seneca Cliff. “Wokester”? Really?
    Grumpy old man.

    “Taxes of Ukraine’s Poroshenko show his income jumped 10,000% thanks to Rothschild Trust”


    Humanity’s last hope: Russia, China, Italy, Hungary, Iran, Syria, hostile Brexit, US white nationalism, European populism.

    Order, Ordur!

    Again, the MPs have AGAIN rejected ALL proposals, originating from patliament.

    My proposal to break the deadlock: the RAF caryying out 50 sorties against Westmonster.

    Message to Brussels: kick them out.

    “NO, NO, NO, NO…clue: Furious MP Nick Boles QUITS the Tories after Commons votes down all four alternatives for Brexit AGAIN – amid fevered election speculation as PM orders ministers to five hour cabinet showdown tomorrow”

    The breakup of the Anglo-dominated West is near. Bring it on! Do Europe right and turn to Russia and create a super power twice the size of the US. Next, together with China withdraw from ALL US-centric institutions like UN, SC, WB, IMF and position ourselves as the protector of European America.

    The AIVD (“Dutch CIA”) issues strong warning against increased young Muslim radicalization at Islamic schools in Dutch society. A “parallel society” is developing.

    Surprise, surprise, groups with radical different values don’t mix. Inevitable outcome diversity: civil war and genocide.

    It is high time to accuse the diversity mongers among us and get tough with them. Hotbed presence: media and politics and academia.

    A lot of people including none-Whites are fed with this Whites bashing and none-Whites immigration. Notice they say White nationaite. When saying that they are talking about all whites no matter what countries Whites are from

    Islam alive and kicking:

    “Brunei implements stoning to death under new anti-LGBT laws”

    Reminds me of this Dutch television classic: leftist idealist politicians confronted with reality. Debate between leftist diversity monger Femke Halsema and an authentic and scenic Muslim, who in all earnest promotes stoning in the Netherlands:

    Halsema lost any credibility when shortly after she took her kids from a socalled “zwarte school” (black school) in very diverse Amsterdam, under the comment “my children are not a social experiment” (implying that the children of less fortunate parents, who have no choice, will remain a social experiment).

    Halsema has exactly the same mentality as the most hated poster on this board, empire dave. Lustfully insulting everybody to be a “rrrracist” and “natzi” and in the mean time sneaking out to white areas and preparing for the flight to white Italy.
