The same day the number of U.S. dead from the coronavirus disease hit the 15,000 mark, we also crossed the 15 million mark on the number of Americans we threw out of work to slow its spread and “bend the curve.”

For each American lost to the pandemic, 1,000 Americans have lost their jobs because of conscious and deliberate decisions of the president and 50 governors.

Some 60,000 citizens, we are told, will likely be lost in this pandemic. Are we prepared to accept 60 million unemployed to “mitigate” those losses?

What price victory in this good and necessary war to kill the virus? Is it unseemly or coldhearted to ask?

At what point do we “declare victory and get out,” as one senator told us to do in Vietnam, rather than continue to sustain the U.S. war dead, even if that meant South Vietnam would fall to our common enemies?

Economists at J.P. Morgan are forecasting that the U.S. gross domestic product will fall by 40% this spring and unemployment will reach 20% of the labor force this month.

These are numbers not seen since the Great Depression.

What does this deliberate decision to shut down the country and carpet-bomb our own economy, upon which we all depend, tell us about what we Americans value?

Consider. In a nation one-tenth as populous as ours today, Abe Lincoln sent more than 600,000 men and boys, North and South, to their deaths rather than let seven Deep South states secede and depart in peace.

While the daily loss of Americans to the virus appears to be leveling off, one-third of the way to that 60,000 figure, the other losses from the social and economic devastation we have invited upon ourselves have just begun to mount and will continue far longer.

How many millions of sick and elderly have we sent into solitary confinement? How many families have we forced into a daily struggle for the means to put food on the table and get medicine from the pharmacy?

When the decisions come from President Donald Trump and the governors to open up the economy and encourage Americans to go back to work, will the nation respond?

Will movie theaters and malls all reopen? Will shuttered hotels and motels fill up again? Will professional teams — the NFL, MLB, NBA or NHL — play again to the crowds they knew?

Will public, private and parochial schools, charter and high schools, colleges and universities, all open again to the same-sized classes?

Will conventions, concerts, rallies and recitals begin anew?

To save Americans from contracting a virus that may kill 1-3% of those infected, we have put America on a ventilator.

By courting a depression — a certain consequence of having a nation of 328 million mandatorily sheltering in place and socially distancing — we are telling the world the price we will pay to help save the lives of the thousands who might otherwise contract the virus and die.

Yet this decision raises related questions of life and death.

ORDER IT NOW

Can a nation that will accept a depression that destroys the livelihoods of millions of its citizens be credible when it warns another great power that it is willing to fight a nuclear war — in which millions would die — over who rules the Baltic states or who controls the South China Sea?

Would a nation so unwilling to accept 60,000 dead in a pandemic it would induce a depression to cut the casualties, engage in a nuclear exchange with Russia over Estonia?

The longer the shutdown continues, the broader, deeper and more enduring the losses the country will sustain.

We Americans already live in a nation and world atop a mountain of debt.

Student loan debt. Mortgage debt. Consumer debt. Corporate debt. Municipal, county and state debt. A national debt of $22 trillion now soaring into the stratosphere.

Then there is the sovereign debt of the Third World and of nations like Argentina and Italy. If we bring the U.S. and world economy down, who pays that debt? Or is that a ridiculous question?

The decisions we are taking today, hurling scores of thousands of small businesses and millions of citizens toward bankruptcy, could start a rockslide of loan defaults that will start tumbling the banks as well.

The decisions we take in this coronavirus crisis are defining us as a nation and a people. They are telling the world what we Americans will sacrifice and what and whom we will seek to save at all costs. They will tell us who and what is expendable and who and what is not.

They will establish a hierarchy of values that may not correlate exactly with what we Americans publicly profess.

Our decisions may tell us who we truly are.

Are we prepared to accept 60 million unemployed to ‘mitigate’ those losses?What price victory in this good and necessary war to kill the virus? Is it unseemly or coldhearted to ask?”…or is it sensible & coolheaded to ask? After all, we have been told much higher numbers of citizens (and non-citizens) would be lost not so very long ago, so why should we believe the latest guesstimates? The unemployment figure have actually been much more accurate.
    “Economists at J.P. Morgan are forecasting that the U.S. gross domestic product will fall by 40% this spring and unemployment will reach 20% of the labor force this month.These are numbers not seen since the Great Depression”…& somehow this does not seem to have sunk in yet but when it does it will cause a political tsunami.
    “The decisions we take in this coronavirus crisis are defining us as a nation and a people…Our decisions may tell us who we truly are”…and the scary part is, it won’t even be “our” decisions: all the important decisions that are “defining ‘us’” are all being made over our heads without even asking us. And this Chinese plague “crisis” is probably being used to further exactly those ends.

  2. Who knows exactly why our rulers chose to destroy the economy right now? But I don’t think it has anything to do with compassion for the American people. They’d have no problem sacrificing us in war in large numbers if they thought it would benefit them. If they gave a damn about Americans, our population wouldn’t have risen to 328 million from 250 million in 30 years, mostly from immigration, and manufacturing would have never left the country, especially at a time when the population is exploding. Any claims of tending to the best interests of Americans is done for shallow political reasons. Whatever the current scheme is, we won’t find out, at least we’re not supposed to.

    @OilcanFloyd

    You’re right. And the distinction you’ve drawn between “our rulers” and “the American people” is the long needed vaccine for the pronoun propaganda — “we, us, our” — spread by Mr. Buchanan. Notably, in this column he has mutated to “nation”:

    Can a nation that will accept a depression that destroys the livelihoods of millions of its citizens be credible when it warns another great power that it is willing to fight a nuclear war — in which millions would die — over who rules the Baltic states or who controls the South China Sea?

    Would a nation so unwilling to accept 60,000 dead in a pandemic it would induce a depression to cut the casualties, engage in a nuclear exchange with Russia over Estonia?

    What we know and he should say, of course, is that the people of this country have been gulled into accepting Uncle Sam’s efforts to rule the world for the last (at least) 75 years.

  4. Victory? You mean Cuctory.

    Covid-19 Crisis has exposed what the World Power Game is really about. It’s a contest among cucks to win the approval of the Jews. In this, Iran is the only true exception. Even China and Russia are in the Cuck-Victory or Cuctory camp. They are trying to win the game of “Jews Favor Us Most”.

    Anglo Cucks are Anglucks. Chinese Cucks are Chucks. Russian/Moscow Cucks are Moscucks. Hindu Cucks are Hinducks. They are all playing the game of Tug-a-Jew. Jewish Power is like the most awesome bachelor, and the various cuck nations are pleading with Jews to “Marry me, f*** me, and let me have your baby.” It’s truly a sorry sight. Among Anglucks, we see such putting-out behavior not only from the usual whores(in the Democratic Party, Republican Party, ‘mainstream liberalism’, and ‘Conservatism Inc.’) but from so-called Dissident Rightists like John Derbyshire whose anti-Chinese screed amounts to “We Anglucks sucky sucky you better. Master Jew, come to OUR whore house.” How pathetic that these major goy powers/nations are into ‘Me So Horny, Me So Horny’ mode at the feet of Jewish Power.

    Of course, Anglucks have a longer history of cucking to Jews. Indeed, Anglos once had power OVER Jews. They weren’t always Anglucks. But what historical ironies. Adolf Hitler and Nazis appealed to Anglos in UK and US for partnership. Northern Anglo whites and Germanics as Fellow Aryans who’d rule the world together. The official narrative says the Anglos, despite being imperialist and all that, said NO to the sinister Darth-Vaderian German offer. “Luke, join the Dark Side.” Anglos had supremacist tendencies and had their share of ‘racism’, but they had a sense of limits and were doing their best to move toward greater justice and liberty for ALL mankind. Anglos said NO to German ‘Aryan’ supremacism. They sided with pitiable Jews who were being victimized and slaughtered by the Nazi ‘Aryan’ war-machine that sought to ‘conquer the world’. Then, how ironic that the very Anglos who said NO to German supremacism ended up saying YES YES YES to Jewish supremacism? And Jews, the people who’ve been parading themselves as the primary victims of Racial Supremacist Ideology, are now the biggest practitioners of Racial Supremacist Agenda premised on the vile conviction that any number of goy lives and liberties should be sacrificed on the altar of the Almighty Jew. If millions of Arab lives are destroyed? Who cares? If Iranian women and children are made to suffer? Let them suffer, let them die. If EU is flooded with tons of African and Muslim invaders because Wars for Israel destabilized borders in North Africa and Middle East? Let the whites be invaded and replaced. Besides, Diversity is useful for Jews in playing Divide-and-Rule among goyim. Anglos rejected one supremacist offer(of the Nazis) to end up serving the supremacism of the other(the Jews as main victims of Nazis). Of course, as the Official Victims of Supremacism, Jews get a pass on their own Supremacism. Jewish checks, no matter how costly and ridiculous(or bogus), are written off as Reparations for the Holocaust. It’s the Holo-Cost.

    As Anglos went from Anglo-Lords or Anglords to Anglucks, they set the template for all of the world. Following World War II, the Anglo World was richest and most powerful. US, Canada, and Australia were in great shape. UK was drained by WWII but less damaged than most major European nations. Also, its empire was still intact. Even with the decline of UK and rise of US, it was Anglo Power just the same as the ruling elites in the US were WASPS and Anglo-Americanized whites. Anglords had the supreme power.
    But their Christian Moralism of guilt and redemption gave an opening to Jews. Also, there was an element of naivete and ‘innocence’ in the American Character owing to the official mythology of America as the Nation of Freedom, Liberty, and Equality that had broken free of old, repressive, and corrupt Europe. As such, Anglo-Americans were more sensitive to criticism of American failures. Still, Anglords would surely have kept the power if not for the presence of Jews who not only took over key industries and institutions in media and academia but used them to bait White Guilt. Also, Jewish Big Think or Propheticism seemed sexy like Ron Jeremy’s dong to the Anglos who’d grown accustomed to moderation, pragmatism, empiricism, and restraint. Whether it was the Big Think of Jewish Leftists or Jewish Libertarians(like Ayn Rand), Anglos felt ‘liberated’ by the sheer excess of Jewish ego, confidence, and pride. (Likewise, black music had a similar effect on whites because blacks held nothing back and drew their musical energies directly from their loins.)

    [MORE]

    Initially, Jews began to gain influence over Anglo/Americans by intellectual fireworks and moral appeal. Back then, Jews didn’t have the power to FORCE Anglos to change their views and values at the drop of a hat. They just seemed to make the stronger or more compelling arguments, made easier by their increasing control of the media and narrative. As such, Anglos who changed their minds in accordance to Jewish appeals were not necessarily Anglucks. But with each passing year, Anglos went more and more from Anglords to Anglucks. The children of WASP parents in elite colleges were trained to regard ‘racism’ as the worst crime and made to believe Jews are pure as snow in historical innocence. They grew up with Anne Frank as the new madonna and the Holocaust as the new crucifixion. And as Jews grew richer and more powerful, more whites came to realize they can’t get anywhere without Jewish support. But it wasn’t just the increasing influence but the consecration of Jews as Holy Holocaust Victims that made it nearly impossible to speak honestly about or challenge Jewish Power. Whether it was Democrats or Republicans, their highest concept of Morality and the Good was “We are more supportive of Israel and servile to Jewish interests.”
    If such dynamics had unfolded in some second-rate nation, it wouldn’t have mattered much. But it happened in the US, the richest and most powerful nation on Earth. And the people who cucked to Jews were Anglos, the most dominant people around the world for at least three centuries. So, whatever Anglo-Americans did wasn’t just something they did on their own with Jews. As the very national group associated with world dominance for centuries, it had a seismic effect on all the world. If Anglos, the lords of the world, cuck to Jews, it must be the New Standard for all mankind. If lowly Greeks or Mexicans had cucked to Jews but if Anglo-Americans hadn’t, things would have been different. But Anglo-Americans were the guys who beat Germany and Japan. They were the guys who contained the awesome Soviet Union in the Cold War. Indeed, they’d achieved the tremendous feat of turning the North American wilderness into a superpower in a historical blip. And yet, these mighty people submitted to Jews and found themselves unable to say NO to Jews on anything. So, the ripple effect of this was HUGE. Furthermore, Anglucks didn’t just submit to Jews politically and economically but ‘spiritually’ and ‘morally’. Jews weren’t merely giants but holy gods. Jews were might and right. And this holiness was associated with Jewish Victimhood, a Narrative that could be used to hide the extent of Jewish Power. So, the message around the world was ‘Jews Rule America and Are Not to Mess With’ but also ‘You Cannot Call Out on Jewish Power’.

    As Anglucks surrendered Moral Legitimacy and Political Power to the Jews, their only hope was as comprador cucks of Jews. Let Jews play first fiddle, but Anglos can at least play second fiddle IF they suck up to Jews. This mentality has seeped so deeply into the American Psyche that even those Anglos and whites who’ve been persecuted and de-personed by Jews do everything to win back the Jewish Affection(that never really existed in the first place). So, the National Review magazine, which cucks to Neocons, had John Derbyshire purged, but Derbyshire thinks his China-bashing will put him back in good graces with Jews. Alex Jones was de-platformed by Jews, but he pretends as if the ‘Chicoms’ are behind it. Jared Taylor was taken off Twitter and Paypal by the Jews — and his views are often censored on Youtube — , but his priority is always to suck up to Zionists and censor anyone on his site who calls out on Jewish Power. If Dissident Right Anglos act this way, just imagine how Anglos in Democratic and Republican Parties act. The Joe Bidens and Mitt Romneys of the world. What a pathetic bunch.

    Now, why didn’t Jews accept the Angluck bargain in good faith? After all, Nazi Germans would have been more than happy to form a partnership with Anglos. Indeed, Germans would have accepted an equal or even an subordinate partnership with Anglos. Germans had no designs on the British Empire. Hitler admired the Anglos and wanted to be on good graces with them. Hitler was a shit in many ways, but he did believe in mutual respect with leaders and nations he admired. We see this between Germany and Italy. Though Hitler’s view of Italians wasn’t much, he truly admired Mussolini and kept his end of the bargain. He did everything to make the cowardly Italians look good. After the third-rate Greeks whupped fourth-rate Italians, Hitler had Germany take Greece to save Mussolini’s face. So, if Anglos had made a deal with Hitler, Hitler would have kept it: Germans and Anglos together as best friends forever.

    So, why didn’t Jews take this offer from the Anglos: Jewish power and Anglo power together would have been unbeatable. But there was one difference. The factor of ethno-psychology. It all hinged on how Jews saw Anglos and regarded themselves(through the imagined Anglo gaze). If the Nazis regarded Anglos as racial equals and brethren, Jews regarded Anglos as the Goy Other(and felt that Anglos, despite their all-too-sudden sentimentality about Jews, privately regarded Jews as a bunch of nasty ‘kikes’). Also, if Nazi Germans regarded Anglos as equal to them in every way — intelligence, ability, vision, talent, looks, etc — , Jews felt both massive inferiority complex and superiority complex vis-a-vis the Anglos. Too many Jews who looked like Anthony Weiner and Woody Allen hated the fact that they were funny-looking compared to Anglos. Even when Anglos didn’t make fun of Jews and treated them nice, Jews got into an Edgar-Allan-Poe-like paranoia about what Anglos REALLY think. It’s like Woody Allen in the opening of ANNIE HALL saying he heard the guy say ‘Jew Eat?’ instead of ‘Did you eat?’ So, as long as Jews co-existed with Anglos, the very reality of Anglo looks was an affront to Jewish self-image, made all the worse by the fact that Jewish Portnoys agreed that Anglo women were preferable to Jewish women in looks, the subject of THE HEARTBREAK KID. As Jewish women rose up the ranks, they brought their own brand of neurosis into the mix from the hurt that they felt over Jewish men and society finding White Women more desirable than Jewish Women.
    At the same time, Jews felt superiority complex over Anglos as they couldn’t help feeling smarter, more clever, and wittier than the Anglos. Whether Woody Allen vs Anglos in his movies or Frederic Raphael’s GLITTERING IMAGES, there is abrasive Jewish arrogance in beating White goyim in the arena of wit, insight, and cunning. So, both the angry inferiority-complex-side and arrogant superiority-complex-side of Jews in relation to Anglos didn’t make for a stable partnership. No matter how much Anglos sucked up to them, Jews were offended & belittled by the fact that Anglos were taller & more attractive AND felt contempt & arrogance toward the less intelligent and/or more naive Anglos.
    Besides, it must have been a truly piteous sight for Jews to see the once-mighty Anglos grovel at their feet. Here was this race that had conquered and ruled the world. The race that produced Douglas MacArthur and George Patton. But they were now on their knees begging the Jews, “Can I suck your cock? I will swallow.” It’s impossible to feel any respect for such cucky-wucks. It’s one thing for poor folks in some hapless third-rate nation to act thus. But for Anglos, the world conquerors and leaders? And to a bunch of nebbish Jews? (Ethno-psychology matters. If Hitler would have kept his bargain with Anglos, he certainly didn’t keep it with Stalin and the Slavs, whom he despised racially and culturally. Had Anglos cut a deal with Hitler, they were on safe ground. But Russians weren’t.)

    Because Anglos created the New Order, Jews formed a partnership with them, BUT it could not be equal or based on mutual respect/interest. Rather, while Jews increased Jewish Power, Jewish Identity, and Jewish Interests, Anglos were to ever decrease their own. Jews would grow more the Master while Anglos would grow more the Dog. While Jews emphasized Jewish unity among Jews of all nations and classes, they demanded that Anglos totally abandon Anglo/white identity except as a dirty epithet or smear. ‘Jewish’ is noble, ‘White’ is awful. Therefore, the Terms of Agreement in the partnership was that (1) Jews keep their identity, interests, & unity, and furthermore, whites support, defend, and honor Jewish identity, interests, & unity (2) White elites denounce white identity, white interests, & white unity, and whites may operate & succeed ONLY AS deracinated individuals IF AND ONLY IF they cuck to Jewish Power, Magic Negro Cult, and Globo-Homo-mania.
    In other words, Anglos and whites can still become rich and rise up the ladder BUT only as individuals and as cuckish servants & toadies of Jewish Power and Jewish Supremacism.

    And so, Anglords turned into a race of Anglucks. And as Anglo-Americanism was the template of whiteness in the US, whites of all other ethnic groups followed suit. We have Italian-Americans who follow the Angluck model. Rudy Giuliani kisses Zionist ass and wears woman’s clothing at globo-homo parades. This means that while rich elite Jews can care for and champion the needs of ALL Jews, white elites could not act for white interests or white solidarity. White elites can keep their elite status ONLY IF they serve Jewish elites who stand for Jewish Unity. So, even as whites did everything to ensure and promote Jewish preservation, power, and glory, Jews did everything to chip away at white power and unity. Paradoxically, the Jewish allowance of white elite success undermined white power/interests even more. Had Jews targeted all whites for collective ruin, then ALL whites would have gotten the message that they are NOTHING in the Jewish Dominated Order. Then, there would have been white unity and resistance as smart whites would have sided with lesser whites against Jews. Jews figured that the best way to undermine white unity is to provide lots of carrots for the best-and-brightest whites who would be showered with prizes and accolades as long as (1) they sought success as atomized individuals (2) praised & revered Jews (3) denounced white identity and white pride in favor of Diversity and Jungle Fever. That way, Jews got to own the best-and-brightest whites who, otherwise, might have sided with the white masses against Jewish Power. The most effective kind of oppression is not to equally oppress all of the Other but to provide goodies to the best-and-brightest among them so that they will work for you than champion and lead their own people. (It’s interesting how Jews went from appealing to white vulgar mentality to appealing to white elite mentality. When Jews were on their way up, many non-elite whites cheered the Jews as ‘populist’ bad boys, as with the Marx Brothers, who gave the Middle Finger to rich white snobs. Of course, the Marx Brothers ridiculed the goy in the street as well as the goy in the Ivory Tower, but the sheer anarchic energy of such Jewish comics was appealing to many whites who felt down and out. Back then, plenty of whites in the South, Midwest, and the West resented the ‘Eastern Establishment’ of Anglo Brahmins. So, when Jewish comedians and mavericks championed unruly class rebellion, they seemed like heroes of the Common Man. The unwashed goyim had no idea that Jews were mocking Wasp elites so that THEY THE JEWS would take over as the new elites. Once Jews did gain the status as the New Rulers of America, they no longer had use for white American populism. If Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges once used to represent Jewish comedy, Jewish humor was epitomized in the 90s by Jerry Seinfeld whose show appealed to urbane yuppie tastes and went over the heads of the hoi polloi. And then, incredibly enough, Jews even waged War on Humor as comedy and jokes could be used to mock Jewish Power and Supremacy by the likes of Sam Hyde. Of late, Nick Fuentes has used comedy to provoke Jewish Power, and Jews won’t have any of it, which is why he was taken off Youtube. And today, Jews appeal to white elites in the denunciation of lowly, crude, and vulgar populism of the white working class, the very opposite of what they’d done with the Marx Brothers.)

    Anglos, once the rulers of the world, turned into Anglucks. And the world realized this. They came to understand that the US, the lone superpower, is essentially about White Folks cucking to Jews. Jews are like the gods of politics, and in US as Valhalla, Angluck Warriors worship and sing praises to the Jewish gods. If Anglos and Anglo-Americanized whites, the bulk of the US(as lone superpower) act this way, then the message heard around the world is the formula for global success is to serve the Jews to gain their tolerance, approval, and blessing. (It’s like Sollozzo the Turk needed Don Corleone’s approval to do business in New York in THE GODFATHER.) And Jews know that the world sees Global Power this way. A people or nation won’t rise to great wealth UNLESS they put out to Jews as the global godfather or godpimp. Though Anglos had been much diminished under Jewish Power, the fact is many continue to do well in the New Jewish Order only because they serve the Jews for approval and blessing.

    And so, the Angluck Template led to the rise of the Chucks(Chinese Cucks), Moscucks(Moscow Cucks), and Hinducks(Hindu Cucks). Of course, there are many others such as Polucks(Polish Cucks) and Japucks(or Japanese Cucks), but as their nations are second-rate political puppets of the US empire, it doesn’t really matter. They have no choice but to be cucks. But China, Russia, and India still have some degree of real sovereignty. They are not part of the US empire and therefore must make an extra effort to win over Jewish Approval and Blessing. They must play the game of Tug-A-Jew.
    Of course, they play this game with a certain trepidation. They don’t trust the US, and they don’t trust Jews. (And they don’t want to end up as pathetic as the Anglucks.) At one time, Russians did trust Jews in the 1990s and got burned real bad. Boris Yeltsin and his crew thought being Moscucks would bring many blessings. Invite Jews to fix the Russian economy, and both Jews and Russians would get richer and do well. But what did Jews do? They raped the entire economy and let countless Russians die of despair and drugs. Of course, some Russian elites did get rich by collaborating with Jews, but the Jewish-Russian bargain was like the Jewish-Anglo one. Russians could get ahead as individuals(collaborating with Jews), but they better forget about Russian solidarity or Russian nationalism. But things got so bad that it led to a backlash under Vladimir Putin who rejected the Hyper-Moscuck strategy of the 90s. Russians realized that Jews could never treat Russians on equal terms. Jews saw Russians as either collaborators or cattle. Still, Jewish Power around the world was such that Putin could not drop the Moscuck Strategy completely. Rather, he changed the dial from Hyper-Moscuckery to Moderate-Moscuckery. Of course, for Jewish Supremacists, even this was outrageous. How dare Russia not totally put out to the Jews? Don’t these dumb, stupid, drunken Russians know that Anglos, once the mightiest people on Earth, totally cucked to Jews? Then, how dare the Russians not totally cave to Jewish demands? (Ukrainians totally cuck to Jews, and that’s really been great!) So, that set of the Jewish War on Russia, but there still hasn’t been a Russian War on Jewry because, even as Jews piss on Russia, Putin knows that Russia still needs connections to the Empire of Judea to have a role in the global economy. Putin’s partial-cuckery is on display every time he meets with Benjamin Netanyahu. Israel undermines everything Russia tries to do in Syria. Jews in Israel work with Jews in the US to sanction Russia and apply pressure. But Putin has to show his philosemitic credentials by shining Netanyahu’s shoes and kissing his arse.

    One thing about cuckery is it breeds jealousy. While all cucks are in the same boat of cuckery, they are jealous of the affection or approval that other cucks get. It’s like all dogs are dogs but envious of other dogs getting more hugs, pets on the head, or doggy-biscuits from the Master. If you give one dog something, other dogs feel resentful. If you hug one dog, other dogs want their hugs and more. Cucks are like Concubines. If one concubine is favored by the lord, other concubines feel jealous and want to knock her down a few pegs.

    And this is why Anglucks, Chucks, Moscucks, Hinducks, and others sometimes go out of their way to show that they are more ‘horny’ and ‘sucky-sucky’ with the Jews as top pimp. Part of the reason why Anglucks are so hostile to China and Russia is that they see them as cuck-competitors for Jewish Blessing. “We Anglucks cuck to you Jews most, so please oh please love us most, dear master.” In the 90s, the Jewish-Russian Axis became nearly a thing as Jews were totally taking over that country. Also, the Jewish-Chinese Axis began to emerge around the same time as Jewish Globalists figured on totally destroying white unity in the US by having corporate elites hire Chinese and others while dumping on the American working class. As Russian elites and the Chinese had much to gain from this New Order, they cucked to Jewish globalists. Though Anglucks didn’t publicly protest this(as they were totally afraid of their Jewish Masters), they were feeling jealous and neglected. Instead of strengthening the Jewish-Anglo partnership, Jews seemed to be forming New Partnerships with other would-be cucks. Israel was building Jewish centers in China. The Jewish-Chinese marriage became a big thing in elite circles. China fawned on Jews, and Jewish Media promoted closer US-China ties in the 1990s and 2000’s. Around the same time, Thomas Friedman was traveling in India and promoting the Hindu-Jew or HinJew partnership. Jews seeme to think it’d be a neat idea to replace many white professionals with Hindu ones. Google hired a Hinduck as CEO. Jewish Disney figured on bringing over tons of Hindus to replace white managers and professionals. Anglucks were feeling sad and blue over such developments, but if the Jewish Master wanted it, what could they do?

    But the Covid-19 crisis offers an opportunity for the Anglucks to win back the affection of their Master. Even though Jews spearheaded globalism and made all those deals with Chucks and Hinducks, Anglucks don’t blame the Jews. Instead, they hope to regain the status as the main cuck-darling of the Jews. So, Anglucks make noises about, “Look Master, Chucks lied and People died. Chucks are bad, so please love us Anglucks, dear master.” Hinducks see an opening too. “Oh, Jewish Master, Chucks are bad news, so please send bulk of the global economy our way to India, and we Hinducks will serve you most loyally like that Uncle Dot.com CEO at Google.” And I’m sure Chucks will look for some pathetic way to appeal to Jews by sucking up to Israel more, cutting ties with Iran, and collaborating with World Jewry to suppress white identity.

    It’s all so pitiful. It’s time for Russians to stop being Moscucks. Chinese must stop being Chucks, and Indians must stop being Hinducks. Maybe they see themselves as just playing the game, but Jews always win because they got so many cuck-suitors willing to take it up the ass. These nations need to learn to live within their means. Let Anglucks have the Jews. Anglucks may believe their future is bright as the main ‘partners’ of the awesome Jews, but they are doomed. Even if Jews once again chose Anglucks as their main cuck-allies, they will continue to do everything to reduce whites to a occupied and defeated people who must always take orders from Jews, be demographically replaced by diversity, and be sexually Afro-colonized. If Anglucks are so eager to serve such a master, the world should let them have it.

  6. Very good article today by Mr. Buchanan. A YouTube blogger named Kim Iverson has been doing great work on exposing the myths about this virus that the media, corporations, and politicians have been jamming down our throats for the past six weeks. How could any rational person say that these power-mad people are acting in our best interests?

    In a short video I recently watched, Iverson showed hundreds of Germans defying their governments stay-at-home mandates by congregating peacefully on city streets. Kim then asked why this has not yet happened in the US.

    Why are our citizens so cowed? As Judge Napolitano said on Tucker’s show tonight, these edicts coming from power-crazed fascist governors are not laws. Laws can only be passed by legislatures after public input, and, after the “War on Terror,” there is far too little of that. So, even if you are charged with violating a governor’s stay-at-home edict, you have not broken any law as long as you remain non-violent. When will the sheeple get up off of their couches, turn the damn TV off, and reclaim their rights? If they don’t do it soon, it will be too late.

And Utah is requiring people entering its borders to complete a fairly detailed health questionnaire within three hours after arriving, probably a violation of the commerce clause of the Constitution.

    I’m sure that’s true — but what difference does that make ? When dont polictians do that ? They made a judgement, right or wrong, if we sit back & do the minimum, we may lose X 100,000 to the virus. If we slam on the social brakes maybe it’ll be in the 10,000’s. Which will be politically safer ?
    One thing: if anyone thinks Trump actually wants to do as he has done ( ie shutdowns etc) is delusional. He’d have everything back to “normal” in heart beat, if he thought he could (politically) get away with it….

    Who knows exactly why our rulers chose to destroy the economy right now

    This is a multifaceted phenomenon that hasn’t received a full treatment.

    As I see it, at root was the basic response of herd panic — people simply caught the emotional contagion of fear. Very soon thereafter, the social media virtuous turned it into the usual game of virtue-signaling; “stay home”, “omg people are dying”, etc., became the moralistic dogma of the day, and as we know these people shout the loudest. Once become dogma, it was then about altruistic punishment normally devoted to political correctness.

    In the broadest sense, it’s this species of banal, hysterical moralism that has prevailed against any calmer narrative. If influenza and pneumonia had appeared during the age of social media, they’d have had exactly the same effect; but they appeared long before people were so narcissistic, hysterical, and afraid of dying, or enjoyed being publicly afraid of dying. Celebrities’ role in this can’t be underestimated. Indeed, the entire “influencer” complex may be largely to blame at least at the outset.

    Media, of course, also started pushing the new political correctness almost as quickly as it appeared; as Tucker and Trump have pointed out repeatedly, they went from downplaying it to the now-famous overestimates of millions dead. Fauci, a harmless but seemingly smart old guy, with every hallmark of being invited to dinner at Chappaqua, was trotted out to be the face of calm overreaction.

    One of the most durable non sequiturs in this process has been the “young people are dying too” retort, as if exceptions suddenly disprove the rule. The majority, led by the media, very quickly decided that no group at greater risk should be singled-out or emphasized; everyone must be equally susceptible, “we’re all in this together”. Media reports have included the facts, but usually buried midway through the article, or after juggling numbers so as to confuse readers.

    Of course, we cannot discount people’s “fear for their loved ones”, another central dogma. The majority decided that extending the lives of their elderly relatives is worth the collapse of the economy and your personal freedom, relative though it be. We also can’t leave out the skiing elite, who were disproportionately affected as they all hang out in the same exclusive locations. These are people with a lot of wealth, influence, and power.

    At last the state, which after all is run by spineless boomers, stepped in to enforce the dogma officially — probably also sensing an opportunity at that stage, no way to tell. I think just here the motives splinter according to country; in America, you have the multi-billion dollar bailout and the Federal Reserve’s plan to “leverage” it into trillions, while in Russia, you have mayor Sobyanin’s desire to look like a big-shot with Putin, and of course Putin’s desire to look like a world-hero by sending shitty supplies, which are sorely lacking in Russia, to other countries.

    I also believe a large part of the motivation here is simply the exercise of power — elites love controlling people, “mobilizing resources”, being the man in charge, and of course not being held responsible if something goes wrong. To that end, the leftist establishment is now going hard on the “Trump should have done something sooner” angle.

    Just now here in Russia, a doctor appeared on a talk show and tried dissecting the whole sham. The hosts quickly cut him off and they went to a commercial. This illustrates another big part of this: simple sunk cost fallacy. Politicians have invested in this narrative; they have to enforce it or they’ll be shown to have been the stupid cowards they actually are. Anyone deeply invested in a narrative will remain in denial, incurring greater losses over time.

    There are, doubtless, other angles I have left out. I haven’t looked at vested financial interests beyond noting what’s already been noted about the bank bailout and fiat currency in overdrive, but I’m sure that would all become evident very quickly. Overall, I think the bulk of this is simple herd panic and sunk cost fallacy, aided by a state hasty to allow the usual vulture capitalists to bolster the new zombie economy.

    Stage 2: Fear-mongering
    Stage 3: Dogma

    This is exactly right, and what is happening now is that the US is trying with all its might to avoid the problem. There is a rational response to Covid-19 – here is a graphic from Peak Prosperity who posts updates on YouTube …

    And here is a vid summarizing the rational approach taken by the South Koreans, which the US wants to avoid, let the grandparents be damned,

    And a synopsis by Linh Dinh –

    After China, South Korea was hit hardest by the coronavirus, yet it never locked itself down. By comprehensively testing people, regularly disinfecting places, contact tracing and having nearly everyone wear a face mask while in public, it has managed to suffer only 211 deaths in 11 weeks. On just April 8th, 799 people died from it in New York State.

  36. Excellent article. As I said in a previous comment, this is about placing Ethics before Survival. Of course I do not mean that you should be forced to go out and infect yourself. If you want to spend a whole year inside your house on welfare, I think the government should provide you with a modest monthly amount to keep you going, if it can. (Note: I do not live in the U.S., so I speak in general terms applicable to any country). But please do not demand that of everyone else. Don’t forbid people to earn their living.

    I was plesantly surprised that a very renowned scholar named Peter Singer agrees with me. He is a philosopher who writes on Ethics, and he took part at a debate promoted by The New York Times. He said the obvious: we cannot condemn a majority of people to a humiliating life, and in poor countries even to death, just to save a small fraction of people who are already very old and ill. It would be unethical to do so.

    Whatever the truth is behind this pandemic, the virus will be with us for a long time. Science has an article* saying social distancing should be maintained, possibly in an intermittent way, until 2022, and a resurgence of contagion could appear as late as 2024. It’s unthinkable to keep what we’re doing that long. Everyone would go broke, if they didn’t go crazy first. In another article**, that magazine reports that mass vaccinations have been put on a halt. This is completely unbelievable. People will be exposed to some really deadly diseases just to avoid a relatively mild one. Somebody wake me up.

    COVID-19 has been way over hyped and exaggerated. It’s also heavily impacting those areas with the most third world immigrants and racial diversity while areas with little diversity remain relatively unscathed. If America never enacted mass immigration in 1965 we wouldn’t be dealing with this and blowing up our economy.

    Even if the nation “opens up” on May 1st the six week shutdown blunted the economic momentum we had and we’ll be in a recession the rest of the year. But the damage to the Constitution will be permanent.

    Singer might be right or not, but his thoughts on altruism lead, in my view (and that of others) to the conclusion the best one can do is to (figuratively, at least!) sacrifice himself for the future generations. Not only for the poor who are here today, but for the ones who are yet to be born. (See the quote about art/society commonly attributed to Burke for some musings on that).

    If that proceeds, it would possibly mean going over capitalism as it currently exists as fast as possible, as it might be depleting the chances of the next generations’ means of survival. (Some might disagree, including Singer, but it’s not a bad bet to fall on)

    And so, that

    It’s unthinkable to keep what we’re doing that long. Everyone would go broke, if they didn’t go crazy first.

    might be very true if we try to cling to our society as it was in January 2020. But not necessarily if instead it’s accepted that world is gone, is not coming back, and some other one worth living in must take its place. One in which a sustained quarantine might not be as needed. (Covid-19 will probably not be the pandemic to end all others)

Fundamentally, the crisis he faced was that certain organized, anti-democratic elements had used his election as a pretext to confiscate all the federally owned property in their states. This included all the post offices, court houses, customs houses, all the forts and arsenals their agents in DC had systematically stocked with modern weapons, even the U.S. Mints at Charlotte, Dahlonega, and New Orleans, with millions in bullion and new coin. Then, these “combinations too powerful to be suppressed by ordinary means,” as Lincoln correctly described them, hypocritically howled about being “invaded” when the armed forces of the legal, elected government were sent to repossess and secure the assets they had pilfered from the American people.

    That was the whole point of “Event 201”, collapse the economy so jews and their whores can take it over effortlessly, like what they did near both World Wars. You were stupid and fell for the trick without any resistance, now demented spoiled sheltered hook nosed morons repeat their shallow stupidity while your lives are destroyed, commemorating like it was some sort of retarded commie revolution without providing any solution to it or letting real humans solve anything.
    If most of you starve to death in the process they won’t care (not that I care either, but I hate them much more than I hate you).
    The cost of being a complete imbecile is going to fall heavily on your shoulders very soon.
