Maybe Donald Trump isn’t as stupid as I thought. I’d hate to have to admit that publicly, but it does kind of seem like he has put one over on the liberal corporate media this time. Scanning the recent Trump-related news, I couldn’t help but notice a significant decline in the number of references to Weimar, Germany, Adolf Hitler, and “the brink of fascism” that America has supposedly been teetering on since Hillary Clinton lost the election. I googled around pretty well, I think, but I couldn’t find a single editorial warning that Trump is about to summarily cancel the U.S. Constitution, dissolve Congress, and proclaim himself Führer. Nor did I see any mention of Auschwitz, or any other Nazi stuff … which is weird, considering that the Hitler hysteria has been a standard feature of the official narrative we’ve been subjected to for the last two years.

So how did Trump finally get the liberal corporate media to stop calling him a fascist? He did that by acting like a fascist (i.e., like a “normal” president). Which is to say he did the bidding of the deep state goons and corporate mandarins that manage the global capitalist empire … the smiley, happy, democracy-spreading, post-fascist version of fascism we live under.

I’m referring, of course, to Venezuela, which is one of a handful of uncooperative countries that are not playing ball with global capitalism and which haven’t been “regime changed” yet. Trump green-lit the attempted coup purportedly being staged by the Venezuelan “opposition,” but which is obviously a U.S. operation, or, rather, a global capitalist operation. As soon as he did, the corporate media immediately suspended calling him a fascist, and comparing him to Adolf Hitler, and so on, and started spewing out blatant propaganda supporting his effort to overthrow the elected government of a sovereign country.

Overthrowing the governments of sovereign countries, destroying their economies, stealing their gold, and otherwise bringing them into the fold of the global capitalist “international community” is not exactly what most folks thought Trump meant by “Make America Great Again.” Many Americans have never been to Venezuela, or Syria, or anywhere else the global capitalist empire has been ruthlessly restructuring since shortly after the end of the Cold War. They have not been lying awake at night worrying about Venezuelan democracy, or Syrian democracy, or Ukrainian democracy.

This is not because Americans are a heartless people, or an ignorant or a selfish people. It is because, well, it is because they are Americans (or, rather, because they believe they are Americans), and thus are more interested in the problems of Americans than in the problems of people in faraway lands that have nothing whatsoever to do with America. Notwithstanding what the corporate media will tell you, Americans elected Donald Trump, a preposterous, self-aggrandizing ass clown, not because they were latent Nazis, or because they were brainwashed by Russian hackers, but, primarily, because they wanted to believe that he sincerely cared about America, and was going to try to “make it great again” (whatever that was supposed to mean, exactly).

Unfortunately, there is no America. There is nothing to make great again. “America” is a fiction, a fantasy, a nostalgia that hucksters like Donald Trump (and other, marginally less buffoonish hucksters) use to sell whatever they are selling … themselves, wars, cars, whatever. What there is, in reality, instead of America, is a supranational global capitalist empire, a decentralized, interdependent network of global corporations, financial institutions, national governments, intelligence agencies, supranational governmental entities, military forces, media, and so on. If that sounds far-fetched or conspiratorial, look at what is going on in Venezuela.

The entire global capitalist empire is working in concert to force the elected president of the country out of office. The US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Israel, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Argentina have officially recognized Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela, in spite of the fact that no one elected him. Only the empire’s official evil enemies (i.e., Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Cuba, and other uncooperative countries) are objecting to this “democratic” coup. The global financial system (i.e., banks) has frozen (i.e., stolen) Venezuela’s assets, and is attempting to transfer them to Guaido so he can buy the Venezuelan military. The corporate media are hammering out the official narrative like a Goebbelsian piano in an effort to convince the general public that all this has something to do with democracy. You would have to be a total moron or hopelessly brainwashed not to recognize what is happening.

What is happening has nothing to do with America … the “America” that Americans believe they live in and that many of them want to “make great again.” What is happening is exactly what has been happening around the world since the end of the Cold War, albeit most dramatically in the Middle East. The de facto global capitalist empire is restructuring the planet with virtual impunity. It is methodically eliminating any and all impediments to the hegemony of global capitalism, and the privatization and commodification of everything.

Venezuela is one of these impediments. Overthrowing its government has nothing to do with America, or the lives of actual Americans. “America” is not to going conquer Venezuela and plant an American flag on its soil. “America” is not going to steal its oil, ship it “home,” and parcel it out to “Americans” in their pickups in the parking lot of Walmart.

What what about those American oil corporations? They want that Venezuelan oil, don’t they? Well, sure they do, but here’s the thing … there are no “American” oil corporations. Corporations, especially multi-billion dollar transnational corporations (e.g., Chevron, ExxonMobil, et al.) have no nationalities, nor any real allegiances, other than to their major shareholders. Chevron, for example, whose major shareholders are asset management and mutual fund companies like Black Rock, The Vanguard Group, SSgA Funds Management, Geode Capital Management, Wellington Management, and other transnational, multi-trillion dollar outfits. Do you really believe that being nominally headquartered in Boston or New York makes these companies “American,” or that Deutsche Bank is a “German” bank, or that BP is a “British” company?

And Venezuela is just the most recent blatant example of the empire in action. Ask yourself, honestly, what have the “American” regime change ops throughout the Greater Middle East done for any actual Americans, other than get a lot of them killed? Oh, and how about those bailouts for all those transnational “American” investment banks? Or the billions “America” provides to Israel? Someone please explain how enriching the shareholders of transnational corporations like Raytheon, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin by selling billions in weapons to Saudi Arabian Islamists is benefiting “the American people.” How much of that Saudi money are you seeing? And, wait, I’ve got another one for you. Call up your friendly 401K manager, ask how your Pfizer shares are doing, then compare that to what you’re paying some “American” insurance corporation to not really cover you.

For the last two-hundred years or so, we have been conditioned to think of ourselves as the citizens of a collection of sovereign nation states, as “Americans,” “Germans,” “Greeks,” and so on. There are no more sovereign nation states. Global capitalism has done away with them. Which is why we are experiencing a “neo-nationalist” backlash. Trump, Brexit, the so-called “new populism” … these are the death throes of national sovereignty, like the thrashing of a suffocating fish before you whack it and drop it in the cooler. The battle is over, but the fish doesn’t know that. It didn’t even realize there was a battle until it suddenly got jerked up out of the water.

In any event, here we are, at the advent of the global capitalist empire. We are not going back to the 19th Century, nor even to the early 20th Century. Neither Donald Trump nor anyone else is going to “Make America Great Again.” Global capitalism will continue to remake the world into one gigantic marketplace where we work ourselves to death at bullshit jobs in order to buy things we don’t need, accumulating debts we can never pay back, the interest on which will further enrich the global capitalist ruling classes, who, as you may have noticed, are preparing for the future by purchasing luxury underground bunkers and post-apocalyptic compounds in New Zealand. That, and militarizing the police, who they will need to maintain “public order” … you know, like they are doing in France at the moment, by beating, blinding, and hideously maiming those Gilets Jaunes (i.e., Yellow Vest) protesters that the corporate media are doing their best to demonize and/or render invisible.

Or, who knows, Americans (and other Western consumers) might take a page from those Yellow Vests, set aside their political differences (or at least ignore their hatred of each other long enough to actually try to achieve something), and focus their anger at the politicians and corporations that actually run the empire, as opposed to, you know, illegal immigrants and imaginary legions of Nazis and Russians. In the immortal words of General Buck Turgidson, “I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed,” but, heck, it might be worth a try, especially since, the way things are going, we are probably going end up out there anyway.

    And the propaganda is not always easy to spot. Just this morning, I questioned a needless sentence conveying the Establishment line on Venezuela in the featured article here at Unz about South Africa. It might be revealing to search for “Venezuala” in other, seemingly unrelated articles.

  2. “Ask yourself, honestly, what have the “American” regime change ops throughout the Greater Middle East done for any actual Americans, other than get a lot of them killed?”

    “‘American’ regime change ops” ensure the regular delivery of gasoline to American (and the world’s) consumers at reasonable* prices. This stabilizes global manufacturing and financial markets.

    When Americans give up their cars, then the need for invading oil producing countries and smashing OPEC-like cartels will vanish.

    *prices in line with the costs of extraction and distribution when compared with that of other vital commodities.

    CJ, Venezuelan oil is heavy crude. It takes a ton of refining to turn it into money. Its not like Libyan sweet crude that the French and Italians had to grab with Hillary and her girls running the shop. The US is the world’s largest exporter of oil and gas. Pricing wise, it is in our interests to allow Venezuela’s oil industry to shut down. It is basically there at the moment. The issue that interests the US WRT Venezuela is two-fold: Narco Terrorist State and Refugees. We already have a Narco Terrorist state in Northern Mexico. We eradicated the Narcos of Columbia and would like to keep it that way. Cuba runs on Narco operations. WRT to Refugees, we already have a large number of Venezuelan refugees living the US. These are mostly the European Venezuelans that were chased out of Venezuela by the Indios/Cholo types practicing Liberation Theology and Identity Politics. The next wave of Venezuelan refugees will be the Indios and Cholos. Low IQ, illiterate and predatory. The US has the same interest in refugees that Western Europe does. Exxon/Mobil will do just fine under either outcome.

  6. Americans (and other Western consumers) might take a page from those Yellow Vests, set aside their political differences…and focus their anger at the politicians and corporations that actually run the empire

    In an opinion poll published today, 46% of the gilets jaunes think that the elites—political, intellectual and media—are deliberately using mass immigration to replace Europeans. 44% of them believe that there is a worldwide Zionist conspiracy. Their fellow countrymen are less savvy.

    Click here and scroll down to Les gilets jaunes plus complotistes que l’ensemble des Français.

  7. This pretty much stitches the story together. I think about it a lot. It’s too daunting and hopeless. Who can prevail against them? When was the last time there was a clear victory against the global empire? There’s nothing I can do but hide from them, try not to get noticed. Soon I won’t even be able to post comments like this. And how long until the empire seizes all of our assets?

    “please tell us what special deals the US received by invading oil producing countries”

    The House of Saud agreed to take only dollars in exchange for their petroleum. Also, they broke ranks with OPEC whenever OPEC threatened to turn off the spigot. And finally, we don’t directly import most of our oil from the Middle East as Venezuela was (formerly) our leading source. Until Chavez. But now we’re rejigging things down there to restore that relationship.

    No, our role in the Middle East has been to ensure that Europe and Japan have a reliable supply of Middle East oil. That’s their source.

    You see, Wally, the deal was, Europe and Japan, China etc. would let the USA be the world’s policeman as long as we could guarantee a regular supply of oil at a reliably, stable price. That’s why they finance our trade deficit. Everyone benefits from the stability of the Bush World Order.

    Oil is the keystone of the arch. All prices depend on the price of oil, so critical is it to manufacturing.

    The other part of the deal is that America’s (and London’s) Jews get to control as much of the world’s financial markets as they can lay claim to with their strong-arm techniques. With the dollar as the currency in which oil is traded, we can put the screws to any nation who doesn’t fall in line with our overall plan.

    So, I’m not specifically singling out American oil consumers; after all, the world is now swimming in autos. The difference between Europe today and thirty years ago is startling. Back then, there were relatively few cars and everyone used public transport; today, cars are everywhere.

    So I’m not specifically blaming Americans but I am saying that if people aren’t willing to give up their autos, then they should shut up and stop complaining about American foreign policy in the Middle East and Venezuela.

    This is rank nonsense – an actual shameless defender of globalist fascism, I can’t believe it! Anglo-Zionist globalist fascism simply needs to be DEFEATED, period – I don’t have to “offer a realistic option” to “replace them with”. It is an irredeemably evil, retrograde ideology that is ruining the world, entire nations and continents, and needs to GO. Only an idiot would try to argue that we must endure evil oppression indefinitely because there supposedly isn’t something ready-baked right this moment to “replace it with”. It doesn’t need to be “replaced” with anything equivalent – it just needs to GO. Even an intelligent 10-year-old would laugh at the self-serving silliness of this “argument” (and the evil globalist system actively demonizes, derides, delegitimizes, and persecutes any ideas or movements that might provide an alternative to it, anyway).

    Really!?

    According to 2018 BP Statistical review;
    The US;

    Oil: Production in million tonnes*
    2017 – 571
    *Includes crude oil, shale oil, oil sands and NGLs (natural gas liquids – the liquid content of natural gas where this is recovered separately). Excludes liquid fuels from other sources such as biomass
    and derivatives of coal and natural gas.

    Oil: Consumption in million tonnes oil equivalent*
    2017 – 913
    *Inland demand plus international aviation and marine bunkers and refinery fuel and loss. Consumption of biogasoline (such as ethanol), biodiesel and derivatives of coal and natural gas are
    also included.

    Oil trade in 2017 in millions of tons
    Crude imports 394
    Crude exports 46
    Product imports 104
    Product exports 221

    These number don’t support your theory.

    On the positive side the U.S exports more oil products than it imports. 221-104=117 million tons for 2017.

    On the negative side it exports less crude oil than it imports by wide margin. 46-394= -348 million tons.

    Finally the consumption is way more than production, so all in all the U.S is big net importer of oil. This could very well play a role in it’s interest in Venezuela’s vast oil reserves – currently estimated @ 303 billion barrels vs 50 billion for the US.

  16. MomGreat read. Hopkins is essentially right to say the nation state is dead OR dying. Indeed, you could say that US/western actions over the last 30 odd years have aimed at the destruction of any “nation” — that is, any nation which asserts it’s sovereignty; sovereignty being the essence of a nation. Venezuela, Russia, China & Iran are beyond the pale b/c refuse to simply bend over for the globo-capitalists. A nation can whore it’s self or it will be targeted for destruction.

  17. Power (manifested as interest) is the motivation for war, not principle. That’s not to say leaders don’t have principles: they just don’t go to war over them. The Whitehouse wants Maduro removed because of his socialism. If ideological compatibility was the only criterion for judging someone suitable Washington would treat people such as President Ngunyen Phu Trong of Vietnam or YPG commander General Sipan Hemo in exactly the same vein, both Marxists. It serves US interests to be allied with them. History is unambiguous: the pursuit of interest ultimately undermines that very interest. Washington risks unleashing a ‘Latin American Spring’. Already you have the two largest states in the region, Brazil and Mexico, lining up on opposing sides. Such a spring was disastrous for the Middle East. Combined with deteriorating conditions in other global hotspots, events seem to be fulfilling the pattern of history: another world war – nuclear war.

    “…a supranational global capitalist empire, a decentralized, interdependent network of global corporations, financial institutions, national governments, intelligence agencies, supranational governmental entities, military forces, media, and so on…”

    Mussolini called the system “corporatism”, Orwell called it “oligarchical collectivism”. The network is complex but it is certainly not “decentralized”.

    The Rockefeller CFR and its interlocking affiliates (Brookings, Aspen, Davos, Bilderberg, CSIS, CNAS, Atlantic Council, etc) have dominated US policy since WW2. Most of the Fed chairmen and the secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense and CIA have been members of the CFR network. Many of the major post-war institutions (United Nations, World Bank, IMF, NATO, etc) were founded by CFR members.

    Exxon, Chevron, BP, BlackRock, Deutsche Bank and Pfizer are corporate sponsors of the Rockefeller CFR along with Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop, Raytheon, Time-Warner, Reuters, Google and Facebook. Several of their directors and execs are also CFR members. See lists in the CFR annual report.

  19. I am still trying to figure out how a devout capitalist like myself is actually defending my opponents.

    I guess it has to do with issues such as sovereignty, and minding ours and letting them mind theirs. kind of a good fence makes good neighbors thing. As far as I know no one from Venezuela is sneaking into my home. They are not about spreading untruths about me or any citizen I know. They are not demanding that I support them or sign the ant-semetic hate list or express approval of everything they do. They are not manufacturing tales of aberrant sexual activity. They are not demanding that I let them in the country at my expense.

    I just don’t see a threat to me or the country I live in. And I am not sure why my president, a man who based on the record never should have been elected, but I millions of others supported him against all odds — largely on the premise that he would not do what he is now doing, threatening regime change.

    Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France, Germany, and other European states are socialist. I take they are in line for regime change . . boy are we going to be busy. As a fan of monarchy, I am going to miss it.

    Trump is also keeping his globalist masters plenty happy by promising to bring in the largest number of legal immigrants ever, a promise he made off the cuff during his SOTU address, and has since doubled and tripled down by calling for mass expansion of legal immigration.

    And today he called for Ilhan Omar to resign, for having the courage to call out the true nature of AIPAC and Israel’s political influence on the US.

    MAGA is really MIGA, both for Make India Great Again and Make Israel Great Again.

    All politicians are liars, but Trump is turning out to be the biggest liar of them all. A guy who campaigned on no more foreign intervention and no more immigration is now giving us endless foreign intervention and endless immigration. With “nationalists” like him, who needs globalists?

    ‘Pocketing 1,000% Markup, Venezuelans Smuggle Out Precious Food’, Oscar Medina, Matthew Bristow, Bloomberg, February 12 2019, 6:00 AM February 12 2019, 5:40 PM, https://finance.yahoo.com/news/smugglers-pocket-1-000-markup-120000549.htmlhttps://www.bloombergquint.com/business/pocketing-1-000-markup-venezuelans-smuggle-out-precious-food

    Market shelves in the scruffy Colombian town of Puerto Santander are loaded with Venezuelan maize flour, rice, cheese spread and more, heavily subsidized consumer goods smuggled by government officials and ordinary citizens alike and sold at big mark-ups. Gasoline is ferried from Venezuela too, as people cash in on the arbitrage opportunities created by extreme price distortions.

    The spectacle of food being spirited out of a country where hunger is becoming epidemic shows in microcosm how Maduro’s socialist government has created an economic and humanitarian disaster. While this black-market trade has been going on for years now, it’s jarring to witness it at a time when much of the world has thrown its support behind efforts by Maduro’s rival, Juan Guaido, to bring emergency supplies into the country.

    “It makes you angry to see these products for sale,” said Lisbeth Cisneros, 28, a pregnant mother of four who fled the Venezuelan town of San Cristobal three months ago and works as a street vendor on the Colombian side of the border. “The situation is horrible over there.”

    Here might the Russian gate camouflage produced into fake news propaganda?

    https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/02/13/588433/US-Saudi-Arabia-nuclear-deal-nuclear-weapons
    ‘This comes as US Energy Secretary Rick Perry has been holding secret talks with Saudi officials on sharing US nuclear technology.’

    finally, a hypothesis to explain
    1. why the Joint non nuclear agreement with Iran and the other nuclear power nations, that prevented Iran from developing nuclear weapons, was trashed? Someone needs to be able to say Iran is developing …, at the right time.
    2. Why Netanyohu made public a video that claimed Iran was developing nuclear stuff in violation of the Iran non nuclear agreement, and everybody laughed,
    3. Why the nuclear non proliferation agreement with Russia, that terminated the costly useless arms race a decade ago,
    has been recently terminated, to reestablish the nuclear arms race, no apparent reason was given the implication might be Russia could be a target, but
    4. why it might make sense to give nukes to Saudi Arabia or some other rogue nation, and
    5. why no one is allowed to have nuclear weapons except the Zionist owned and controlled nation states.
    6. Why Trump protected MBS from the consequences of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi

    Pre hypothesis Statement: Zionism is an economic system that demands all competition of whatever kind to be eliminated. It is a winner get’s all, take no prisoners, system. Economic Zionism targets all who would threaten or be a challenge or a threat; does not matter if the threat is in in oil and gas, technology or weapons, knowledge, gold, whatever as soon as a possibility exist, the Economic Zionism requires that it be taken out, decimated, and destroyed and made where never again it could even remotely be a threat to the Empire, that Zionism demands.. The obvious result of such a system, is that the winner is not just a winner, he or she has complete total monopoly power ( the lawless Power of a king or a pope).

    Hypothesis: A claim that another is developing nuclear weapon capabilities is sufficient to take that other out?

    ‘Russia warns United States against intervention in Venezuela’, MOSCOW Reuters, Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Peter Graff, WORLD NEWS, FEBRUARY 12, 2019 / 1:52 PM / UPDATED 15 HOURS AGO, https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-usa-venezuela/russia-warns-united-states-against-intervention-in-venezuela-idUSKCN1Q12G7

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo against any interference, including military, into Venezuela’s internal affairs, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement following a phone call between the two. Lavrov said that Russia was ready for consultations about Venezuela in line with the United Nations charter.

    The Monroe Doctrine is a United States policy of opposing European colonialism in the Americas beginning in 1823. It states that further efforts by European nations to take control of any independent state in North or South America would be viewed as “the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the United States.”

    The three main concepts of the Monroe Doctrine—separate spheres of influence for the Americas and Europe, non-colonization, and non-intervention—were designed to signify a clear break between the New World and the autocratic realm of Europe.

    The USA has lots of intermediate crude oil deposits, which can be produced via modern horizontal drilling and enhanced fracking technologies. Intermediate crude is suitable for use in a wide range of chemical products, as are natural gas and light crude oil. Saudi Arabia exports a lot of intermediate crude oil to the USA.

    The USA continues to import some tar (bitumen, asphalt, heavy crude) from Canada, Venezuela, Indonesia, Argentina, Angola, Peru and other nations. Asphalt is mostly useful for paving roads and making roof shingles.

They supported Wilson “because he kept us out of war” at the same time that Wilson was making preparations to enter the war. The rulers can negotiate “secret treaties” at home and abroad. The people, knowing nothing of either the theory or the practice of secret diplomacy, commit all sorts of follies for which they themselves must later foot the bill.

  41. Anon49 says:

    Notwithstanding what the corporate media will tell you, Americans elected Donald Trump, a preposterous, self-aggrandizing ass clown, not because they were latent Nazis, or because they were brainwashed by Russian hackers, but, primarily, because they wanted to believe that he sincerely cared about America, and was going to try to “make it great again” (whatever that was supposed to mean, exactly).

    I live in the Pennsylvania county that Ben Bradlee, Jr., believes was the turning point for the 2016 election. He even wrote a book about it: The Forgotten: How the People of One Pennsylvania County Elected Donald Trump and Changed America. And another good source for what really happened is Chris Hedges’ new book: America, The Farewell Tour.

    We were not so starry-eyed as to believe anyone was going to make America great again, nor do we believe any and every politician who ever ran in our area when they promise that they are “going to bring back the coal industry in northeastern PA”.

    This area is a litmus for the rest of America–industries shut down or went to Mexico, population decreased by 50%, home values plunged, the area began to swell with illegal hispanics and out-of-town (Brooklyn, Bronx and South Philly) blacks, the drug trade boomed as did heroin arrests and overdoses, homicide rate in proportion to population reached a national high, once the 52nd largest market in America we are now tied with Little Rock, Arkansas, for most economically depressed area in the US, corners are filled with Mexican day laborers and in-between corners are packs of feral black teenagers armed with guns and knives who are robbing locals 24/7, local health care is monopolized by one corporation (Geisinger) who no one with only Medicare can afford to go to, the local cities are broke and selling off assets to survive (parking garages, meters, utilities all going private). Take our area and multiply it times 19,000 other municipalities in America and you get the picture.

    I don’t know anyone who viewed Trump as a knight on a white horse. But as a county and state that was straight Democratic for 35 years, people simply got tired of voting for change over and over and seeing things get worse. Hillary Clinton–even though she’s considered a homegirl since her father’s family are from Scranton–came to be a despised representative of the establishment, nothing more than a mouthpiece and a whore for Jewish/Israeli interests. Voting for her would be voting for an invasion of Syria, Iran, and ultimately Turkey and then, why the hell not, Jordan.

    Honestly, most of us don’t think anything is going to be accomplished or changed. Not with Trump or any other politician. What is needed is an American revolt, Gilets Jaunes on steroids.

It is an irredeemably evil, retrograde ideology that is ruining the world, entire nations and continents, and needs to GO.

    I agree — those who want to get rid of something that is manifestly bad bear no obligation to specify a replacement. (“Cure polio? But what will you replace it with?”) I will, however, suggest an alternative: a voluntary association of sovereign states with a small, starved, inoffensive central government, the functions of which are limited to a minimal number of necessary coordination tasks. An Articles-of-Confederation sort of deal. It wouldn’t last, you say? True enough. But it might be tolerable for a few decades, maybe even a century, until needing to be overthrown again. Wasn’t it Jefferson who talked about the need for the tree of liberty to be periodically nourished by the blood of patriots? That’s the basic trouble with the USA: it’s way overdue for, shall we say, comprehensive and fundamental regime change.

    What is needed is an American revolt, Gilets Jaunes on steroids.

    Any revolt will amount to changing one master for another, while any true revolution requires changes in the ways of thinking and such things are fought tooth and nail for practically ever, I think.

    Even the simplest concepts are rejected and despised until the obvious is ultimately forced upon people. As an example, recently I happened to read that the basics of blood circulation, which everyone now accepts as obvious, were not known until only about 5oo years ago and were apparently discovered and described by William Harvey whose ideas were largely and vigorously rejected by many of the “experts” and “authorities” of the time.

    I suspect it’ll be centuries until the basics of something as complicated the management of human affairs is accepted as obvious especially since the arguments have been hashed and rehashed for all of known history and philosophers and gods have come and gone with their “solutions” and ain’t nothin’ worked yet.

    [The masses], as no one may deny, have often risen against governments extorting too high a price for their services, or threatening to overwhelm them with intolerable burdens, but the success of such movements seldom results in more than a change of masters, and the new governing class has usually been larger and of inferior quality. The result of these revolutions has been what it always must be—augmented burdens and a recrudescence of the State of War.23

    Actually it died right then and there, if not sooner.

    It began dying with the crushing of Shays’ and the Whiskey rebellions and the ratification of the constitution, if not sooner.

    Read the said constitution, and consider it well before you act. I have done so, and can find that we are to receive but little good, and a great deal of evil.

    Aristocracy, or government in the hands of a very few nobles, or RICH MEN, is therein concealed in the most artful wrote plan that ever was formed to entrap a free people. The contrivers of it have so completely entrapped you, and laid their plans so sure and secretly, that they have only left you to do one of two things-that is either to receive or refuse it. And in order to bring you into their snare, you may daily read new pieces published in the newspapers, in favor of this new government; and should a writer dare to publish any piece against it, he is immediately abused and vilified.

    Look round you and observe well the RICH MEN, who are to be your only rulers, lords and masters in future! Are they not all for it? Yes! Ought not this to put you on your guard? Does not riches beget power, and power, oppression and tyranny?

    I am told that four of the richest men in Ann-Arundel County [Maryland], have offered themselves candidates to serve in the convention, who are all in favor of the new Federal Government. Let me beg of you to reflect a moment on the danger you run. If you choose these men, or others like them, they certainly will do everything in their power to adopt the new government. Should they succeed, your liberty is gone forever; and you will then be nothing better than a strong ass crouching down between two burdens.

  51. In sum, then, the primary development of republicanism in America, for the most part under direction of Alexander Hamilton, effectively safeguarded the monopolist, the capitalist, and the speculator. Its institutions embraced the interests of these three groups and opened the way for their harmonious progress in association. The only interest which it left open to free exploitation was that of the producer. Except insofar as the producer might incidentally and partially bear the character of monopolist, capitalist, and speculator, his interest was unconsidered.

    Real Reason the U.S. Wants Regime Change in Venezuela

  66. E. Michael Jones has said that once you become conscious of the problem, there is no going back to not knowing. This consciousness is happening globally; the problem itself afflicting the globe.

    The oligarchs’ rule ends when we people, individually and united as one, stop serving them through fear. And, as Herve Ryssen of the Yellow Vests has said, fighting their agenda and living in accord with ideas that correspond to the truth is worth suffering for. We are going to carry a cross in this life whether we like it or not; the Truth’s burden is “easy”and “sweet”; any of the competing counterfeit crosses is truly unbearable. God or Mammon: take your pick.

    The late Joe Sobran insisted that these oligarchs possess no power we do not give them . He saw this point best encapsulated by the Coen Brothers’ film, “Miller’s Crossing” with its lines:

    “You don’t run this town (Sheldon), people just think you do. Once they stop thinkin’ it, you stop runnin’ it.”

  67. Or, who knows, Americans (and other Western consumers) might take a page from those Yellow Vests, set aside their political differences (or at least ignore their hatred of each other long enough to actually try to achieve something), and focus their anger at the politicians and corporations that actually run the empire, as opposed to, you know, illegal immigrants and imaginary legions of Nazis and Russians. In the immortal words of General Buck Turgidson, “I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed,” but, heck, it might be worth a try, especially since, the way things are going, we are probably going end up out there anyway.

    Another option is to realize that no one can organize a reasonably free life if there are 10 billion people living on the planet and therefore make preparations to try to survive the inevitable population collapse.

    This is a natural process. Human beings are just animals responding to their environment, but at the present time the social environment is full of all sorts of stresses that are unlike our evolutionary environment. Pointing fingers and blaming only takes your precious time and attention and casts it to the wind.

    “And I am not sure why my president, a man who based on the record never should have been elected, but I millions of others supported him against all odds — largely on the premise that he would not do what he is now doing, threatening regime change.”

    I believe Trump was elected because he was seen as being the lesser evil at a very dangerous moment in time. To many of us, the main issue in the 2016 election was the looming conflict with Russia, and the message was loud and clear: If you don’t vote for Trump, you’ll get Clinton, which means WW3, or something like that.

    Moreover, I believe Obama’s provocations in Syria in the late summer and fall of 2016 – which dramatically escalated tensions with Russia – were intended to undermine Clinton’s electoral prospects, thus benefiting Trump. And the plan apparently worked. I could be wrong, but if I understand correctly, Trump’s margin of victory in a few key states was less than the number of Sanders supporters who voted for him in those states, for example. Most Sanders supporters who voted, voted for either Jill Stein or Clinton, but a percentage of them apparently held their nose and voted for Trump in a vain attempt to avoid the dangerously confrontational foreign policy that Clinton promised.

    Sh-tholery is relative. And the US has been good at making other countries worse sh-tholes than the homeland.

    On Thursday, January 10, in Washington, DC, the OAS Permanent Council finally had the votes to approve a Resolution that “does not recognize the legitimacy of Nicolás Maduro’s new term as of January 10, 2019”, and among other things, “calls for new presidential elections” to be held in Venezuela with the participation of international observers as guarantors of its fairness and transparency. This move by the OAS Permanent Council, whose Presidency is currently under the government of El Salvador, signals the beginning of the isolation of the Maduro regime from the international community. It also signals (finally) the full support of the majority of the democratic states in the Inter-American system to the Venezuelan people and democratic institutions in the country.

  85. For those who demand a definition of fascism, good luck pinning one down.

    For if you examine the press you will find that there is almost no set of people — certainly no political party or organized body of any kind — which has not been denounced as Fascist during the past ten years. Here I am not speaking of the verbal use of the term ‘Fascist’. I am speaking of what I have seen in print. I have seen the words ‘Fascist in sympathy’, or ‘of Fascist tendency’, or just plain ‘Fascist’, applied in all seriousness to the following bodies of people:

    -George Orwell, What is Fascism? TRIBUNE (1944)

    For me, fascism is any system of government that the international moneybags crowd needs to smear at any given time.

    In fact, the Monroe Doctrine, (now extended worldwide) was declared so’s to keep the whole of the Western Hemisphere under the exclusive meddling and influence of the moneybag crowd that owns the US of Usury.

    Now getting back to Mexico, let the “lefty” General Butler enlighten you.

    I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

    I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
    During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

    -MG S Butler, War is a Racket

    http://www.fas.org/man/

    Now, tell us all about them “lazy” Mexicans…(I hear, and have observed, that they’re generally pretty hard working.)

  99. Smedley Darlington Butler was a United States Marine Corps major general, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history.

    During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. Butler later became an outspoken critic of U.S. wars and their consequences. He also exposed an alleged plan to overthrow the U.S. government.

    By the end of his career, Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to receive the Medal of Honor twice, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal (along with Wendell Neville and David Porter) and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.

    In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations, but a final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler’s testimony.

    In 1935, Butler wrote a book titled War Is a Racket, where he described and criticized the workings of the United States in its foreign actions and wars, such as those he was a part of, including the American corporations and other capitalist-imperialist motivations behind them.

    -Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC

    I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

    War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag. I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

    There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism. I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it.

    I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints.

    ….Europe and Japan, China etc. would let the USA be the world’s policeman as long as we could guarantee a regular supply of oil at a reliably, stable price. That’s why they finance our trade deficit. Everyone benefits from the stability of the Bush World Order.

    Oil is the keystone of the arch. All prices depend on the price of oil, so critical is it to manufacturing.

    The other part of the deal is that America’s (and London’s) Jews get to control as much of the world’s financial markets as they can lay claim to with their strong-arm techniques. With the dollar as the currency in which oil is traded…

    Pretty much.

    That could open the uncomfortable question: does the World need a policeman?
    Then, another one: policeman is just a tool; the important is really a “thing” the “policeman” actually works for.
    And, going deeper: what exactly are the values and goals of that “thing”?

    So, the “policeman” can work for a global “entity” which brings better life for people on the planet.
    Or….it’s actually something quite different.

    At the moment it appears that the “policeman” works for,say, some global oligarchic entity first and foremost. The crumbs of benefits there get to selected nations, or better, some layers of those nations, in West.

    That’s right.

    MI5 was heavily involved in forming “House of Saud.” The 73 Saudi Kissinger petro-dollar agreement had many factors:
    1) Saudi gets front line military gear
    2)Fifth fleet protection for shipping
    3) America guarantees security
    4) Saudi Coup is recognized
    5) OPEC Cartel is allowed

    What does the U.S. get?
    6) Oil priced in dollars
    7) All dollars are spent into western markets and dollars zones, in effect returning to private banks which in turn hold dollars as reserve.

    Yes, it was a CFR agent (((Kissinger))) who was main agent for the plan.

    When Nixon went off of the gold system it was soon replaced with Petro-dollar TBill “floating exchange rate” system. The 73 agreement is the nucleus for this TBill Petrodollar system.

    This floating exchange rate system gave private banks inordinate power, and so here we are today, with the money power firmly burrowed in like a tic.

    The U.S. is not sovereign, it does not have its own money. At source virtually all of U.S. money is “notes” issued by private banking corporations. These notes in turn are reflected in a debt instrument.

    But beside that he is not talking about what the Zionist Jews are doing today.
    He is for US but he never mentions that US is being run by Zionist Jews under instructions from Natanyahu.

    Minus having taken serious into account the successful “businessman’s” flexible history including key contacts, and amazing rise to POTUS, in tragic error, Ilyana Rozumova mistakenly suggested: “Trump is a sheep (maybe ram) surrounded by growling Zionist wolves. He can do only so much.”

    Greetings, Ilyana, and fyi, I come here now not to insult, but to educate.

    Trump is now a popular Zio Judas Goat, with allegedly 50% American “job approval” rating, & who as Commander In Chief of US military forces, is tasked by international Jewry with taking down Iran’s Islamic Republic.

    Average ‘Merikans have have little idea about the young & very ambitious, Donald Trump’s, dubious connections to mafias who helped him escape bankruptcy and enter the lucrative realm of Atlantic City, NJ, gambling, for example, Resorts International. My sincere regret, Ilyana, that I forgot the name of the Jewish racketeer who helped Donald J. get
    into the “big time” eastern US casino deal.

    Not being judgemental, that’s because (of course) fabled US politician talent for advantageous changes to their traditional ideological identity, and I suggest both you & the trail-blazing Holocaust revisionist U.R. commenter, “Wally” are inclined to offer modicum of support for President Donald Trump’s Zionist-based method to MAGA. (zzzZigh)

    Fyr, down below, is linked an article by the Zio Huffington Post which offered a pretty good example of Trump’s “dancing with wolves,” and afterward denying it.

    Sadly, Wally called Venezuelan people “lazy” for allowing “commies” like Hugo Chavez to take government control. In contrast, the same “Wally,” perhaps inadvertently, takes up the go-getter “Deplorables” cross🤗 and lets proceed Israel’s march to Neocon-Golgotha, along with the satanic-slogan cry “Death to Iran!”

    https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5819ff2ee4b01f610e3949b2

    Am very grateful for Jacques Sheete’s having brought Brother Nathanael Kapner’s enlightening video on Venezuela to Wally’s attention. Like Wally, I suggest Bro Nat knew what/who HRC was is. Unlike Wally, Brother Nathanael knows who/what Trump is.

    Thanks for lending an ear, Ilyana! Protest to my comments are always welcome. And Trump ain’t no “sheep,” he is just another appointed-president with the novel assignment to be Judas Goat-leader of the allied D.C./Tel Aviv/London-based (wolf pack’s) war on Iran.

    Post scriptum:
    In Laurent Guyenot’s latest & valuable U.R. article is a curious photograph depicting Trump and JFK, Jr. at an event, seated beside one another & rapping. Just more politically rich & ambitious celebrities, rubbing shoulder? Okay, okay, grant that!
    But some here will recall the GOP presidential debate, in particular the shock & awe one where Trump attacked “Lyin” Ted and insinuated Cruz’s father was at Dealey Plaza when JFK was hit. Uh, W.T.F.?
    No MSM followup to that volatile inference.
    Uh, our Talking Heads must be only “lazy.”
    Right?

    In conclusion, on You Tube, there might be a clip alive & that shows Donald Trump & his building engineer on-site at Ground Zero, and their being confounded as to how airplane crashes & pursuant fire. Full disclosure: Am to “lazy” to recover this burning video.🤗

    As far as the interests of the average American are concerned, Obama was far more pro-American than orange clown. Thus it seems anyone can do better than orange clown because orange clown is nothing but a liar, con man and treacherous anti-American traitor.

    Given spectacular Zio Corporate Media coverage of a (possible) Zio-President Trump impeachment process, his Jewish Lobby-owned Congressional ACCUSERS (zzzZigh) would no doubt escape all scrutiny as to determining the level to which they betrayed the obligatory & Bible-sworn oath to serve the “Homeland,” and instead opted to serve Israel’s, first.🤗

    Etherized, I ramble on: The pit. The pit. Support the pit! Love the pit or leave the pit. True pit grit. Pit shit is all ‘ya git.

    Re, your engaging point above;
    I have been on the Northeast Pennsylvania road with Linh Dinh. “Adventures,” he eventually dubbed them.

    During our first walks around both Taylor Borough and Scranton, I noticed Linh’s obsession (awe?) about American flags hung everywhere upon resident porches, many which were rented by poor working folk; pit people which upper caste Old Europe Reds would call “lumpenproletariat.”

    Everywhere we went, L.D. would suddenly take hold of camera. “snap, snap!” Everywhere American flags! “snap, snap.” Tall flags posted upon the bed of a Ford F-150! An obese man fashioning a flag T-shirt which could cover a refrigerator. “snap, snap.” Soon, photos galore of the US flag appear on Linh’s blogspot!

    An extraordinary talent he has for eyeing symbolic ‘Merkin pathology as expressed (otherwise unseen!) by the grateful downtrodden’s jingoistic-display of patriotism.

    Fortunately…,
    did not take me forever to comprehend Linh Dinh’s recognition of a weird penchant for locals to love the Stars & Stripes flag, and simultaneously ignore the “pit” for which it stands.

    He could be Freud & Jung with a camera, but it clear to me Linh prefers a non-glitz profession/lifestyle, like the one illustrated by the late-Joe Bageant.

    Two nations out of fifty, well forty four if you discount the transcontinental nations. Two, one of which in 1985 was divided into a western sector and an eastern sector thanks to that great historical event called The Cold War. Yeah there’s a freaking good standard for the rest of Europe to be compared to, a nation torn in two with only the western side having anything that looks like a solid good economy and public numbers to review.

    As for Britain, the 1990s were a period that contained a housing bubble, economic recession and a general dark outlook on the future by the time it reached 1995. So people selling their cars to pay off the banks to keep their homes is to be, frankly, expected and since the 2000s saw the economy recover with more people getting good, well paying jobs again, it makes sense for the sale of cars to go up.

    You are too far out in the wing, …or not far enough, the draft is getting at you.

    Unfortunately, there is no America. There is nothing to make great again. “America” is a fiction, a fantasy, a nostalgia that hucksters like Donald Trump (and other, marginally less buffoonish hucksters) use to sell whatever they are selling … themselves, wars, cars, whatever. What there is, in reality, instead of America, is a supranational global capitalist empire, a decentralized, interdependent network of global corporations, financial institutions, national governments, intelligence agencies, supranational governmental entities, military forces, media, and so on. If that sounds far-fetched or conspiratorial, look at what is going on in Venezuela.

    On Juan Guaido (alas gaio, young rooster, as his predecessors in the family tried to botch his peasant modes). No testing for education, IQ, achievement, as all politicians out of the blue. Could have been a horse, “but it is our horse”. By the way we got our own “Ron Gaio”, next president, shimmering to be useful somewhere in the future.

    The entire global capitalist empire is working in concert to force the elected president of the country out of office. The US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Israel, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Argentina have officially recognized Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela…}

    Could it be said that the “elites” are global, “Americans” are stuck locally.

    What what about those American oil corporations? They want that Venezuelan oil, don’t they? Well, sure they do, but here’s the thing … there are no “American” oil corporations. Corporations, especially multi-billion dollar transnational corporations (e.g., Chevron, ExxonMobil, et al.) have no nationalities…

    Global capitalism has done away with them. Which is why we are experiencing a “neo-nationalist” backlash. Trump, Brexit, the so-called “new populism” … these are the death throes of national sovereignty…

    Yes, evidently and manifestly, there is some global rule tentatives, since over thirty years, (allowing time to dawn into the minds of the money elites’ skulls).
    What is the hardest parts of this? For the locals, most certainly, giving up the idea that as a group they are defined as Americans, have a stake in the global riches or as it goes decadence. That they will get lucky on an individual basis.

    [MORE]

    Just with a slight advantage as to efficiency, not big enough to analyse the long term future, but at least in suppressing the global tarball masses, the elites, once in a while making coherent decisions, mostly infighting which of course furthers the cause as much as non in a timely manner.

    Globalism must be, at least the planet and it’s near surroundings cannot be grasped in a systemic way by considering problems on a local scale. Bolshevism was global, Fascism had a global aspect, Christianity had global ambitions, and all showed some phenotype of it. They were mal digested, as compared to Capitalism propping the cocoon dream of individual comforts and no responsibility. The religion of consumerism at the low end of financial capitalism is the grandstand of history in crowd control.

    So thus the “American” elites, and Trump, the moron baby of a misfiring and only concerns them so much as to their ego, the crowds are not their foremost problem.

    Crowd control is not the biggest issue, but how to sustain capitalism is. Since to some insiders the limited shelve live left of current method and means butting the environment, toxicity, secondary derivatives, of anything conceptually doctored are showing. The uncontrolled growing global populations, the migratory effects beyond their grasp mostly, but as phenomena to be addressed are ostensibly visible even to them.

    Globalism must be, the question is how to build it on to long term goals. The, in the public domain politicians, who better understand this, and can level with the global corporations, seem to be the clusters around Putin and the Chinese elites. Their public appearance is more homogeneous by far, American politics looks and feels cheap, an old flip-flop.

    “American” corporations, have not gotten rid of the believe in theoretical economics of “growth”.
    Mind most of their own brethrens believe in it (a Jared, a Trump are genuinely erratic), the concept of what real power means has not yet dawned. As it goes, they are squandering their own off-spring’s chances, and their interests of privilege over the long term (ten generations should not be thinking too far ahead).

    Crowd control, (Macron), growth economics, copy catted from base American method and history, (Russia and China alike, nothing much new), national economies (Victor Orban, Trump), politics as a whole are nothing but obsolete.
    Their are no historical models that are applicable to reality as is.
    Ex nihilo, “nobody knows” should rule. Outliers not unlike Assange should be the norm.

    In fact, tacking as goes, since the complexity of the overview requires extensive analysis, but here what concerns: the “American locals” do not want so much as to assume failure of systemics, systemics is an abstract, that is not what a human brain is built for.

    Excesses of their own elites, are pertinent, acute, the matter to them. The “American dream” is kept alive by inertia of these same crowds (immigrants as what they stand for in the bigger part, are the champions).

    Now for the real issue, the middle class bread-scribes, the caterers to public opinion, might be obsolete in less then a generation. Hopkins prepare for your insignificance. Or has it been felt yet? The future of yours is racks with rags, since crowd control can be done much more efficiently without recourse to a “media” middle class, as is conceived today.

    There is no predictive power in our comment, nor is their in your article, we are way late , way out, (for one George Carlin, and in lay terms, to a chock-full auditorium, throwing base humor to meaningful content) was better at it.

    As a whole this above average public forum, cannot, does not grasp the meaning of relevancy, overview, based on rational, as compared to “smart” psychological shoveling, and astute advantage taking of old tactics of numbers before all.
    Ron is our hero, he herds, and if herding means not grazing the flats, then so be it.
    For you Hopkins, if told so, the sheep of our flock, indeed, do not like the flats.

    AI, better expressed as “taking decisions based on massive and intelligibly sorted out data, throwing algorithms at data till a scenario can be squeezed out that cannot be contradicted by it’s own data, seeing history as another local pathway, or America now as an historical perspective inside other localities, going from a two dimensional world in politics to at least three”, will replace the grandest idiocies, but at once do away with linear journalism. Every war has it’s victims, as it goes, looks like the middle class is up next. Human processors scale badly, put two smart individuals together, and you get not necessarily a benefit, put two morons together and most certainly one gets multiplied randomness.

    Or, who knows, Americans (and other Western consumers) might take a page from those Yellow Vests, set aside their political differences (or at least ignore their hatred of each other long enough to actually try to achieve something), and focus their anger at the politicians and corporations that actually run the empire, as opposed to, you know, illegal immigrants and imaginary legions of Nazis and Russians. In the immortal words of General Buck Turgidson, “I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed,” but, heck, it might be worth a try, especially since, the way things are going, we are probably going end up out there anyway.

    That our dear friend Hopkins, is praying, not what priests do.
    Get organized, have a stealthy approach in parallel, gather the courage left in your old bones, not wack off on the wall.
    Top down will stay as a feature, global will stay as a feature, the “numbers games” of theoretical economics (college Hudson, staying always one step short of systemic abuse), of indirectly growing global populations, proportionately shrinking populations, migrations, need to be addressed as such.

    Nature points the way, we can readily observe what happens to bees …and big mamals when “disgenic” concepts settle in. Toxicity learns us precious lessons.

    We appreciate your efforts C.J. but they are sterile and humorless under the cover of seriousness. Do not forget, the reason, we readers (and commenters), linger here and not in front of different screen fill, is because of our limited progressive cognizance, not our superior intellects. We are not ready for your message, our nature, emotions, are tuned to looking for the bad guy and pointing fingers to what was, what be, (Saker), what is close to our consumer cocoon, is what matters to us.

    We need structure, you offer none, we need solutions in the short term, we have partisan interests, and we need repetition-ing of easy conceptuals, preferably spiced up with graphics (A. Karlin?).

    Associative thinking and searching will unearth the obvious, so obvious, it leads to frustration…

    No stealth, no power. No global reach no reach at all. No centralized execution, no strategic survival. No disparate physical presence, no quality of life.

    The ‘groups’ mentioned were first in building a working model of an imposing concept that tends to prefer conceptual thinking above “markets”. They own the merit.

    Where it fails is in the goals and “desires” of what is to be the long term future of our planet, and what the extroversion of the human presence, the individual quality of life should be. The tools are shaped, and can be molded, what fails is the concepts, that can be sustained over generations with maximal stability.

    A single notion, to see every individual as human, equal, and having rights, will have to fade.

    Exactly. Thus Corporate Global Finance can market a Marxist-Lite, feel good, totalitarian “anti-fascist” system of control by simply manipulating semantics. I’ll agree that the whole hair splitting shebang has become mind-twistingly oxymoronic.

    On Haiti et al.

    Haiti can stay what it is, a social, milito-politico experiment, the smallest lab globally. Less significant then Gaza, and for that matter Israel. They are the close up experiments to follow.

    Nothing concerning Haiti matters in the real world. The Clintons netted a half a hundred million out of it, no sweat, really, a one man pay. No game for deep state, the bounty is not worth the ammunition.

    That’s what I thought so. But somebody (relevant) may notice the hypocrisy.
