Douglas Macgregor: Consent Of The Governed Has Turned Into Contempt For The Governed

The people bathing in blood are in Kiev and Washington, not in Moscow ~ Douglas Macgregor

Why a candidate like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is so important—and why even RFK, Jr., may not be cunning and ruthless enough to the task ahead. The rest are just too stupid.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor, oft verbatim:

Recent wars, and America’s latest interventions, have added $14 trillion to the national sovereign debt.

All debt-financed.

Average American earns 31K. He pays out $16K.

Each and every working adult American has a debt hanging over them of roughly 240K.

On retiring, working Americans will draw a monthly Social Security payment of $1400.

Treacherous American politicians hand every criminal alien crossing the border a sum of $2200, for their troubles. The Afghans, hanging onto the planes and being lifted to the United State by American military, so wedded to foreigners all over the world—they too receive $2200 per month. Read my “Empire’s Soldiers Head To Afghanistan To Defend The Homeland And Their Homeboys.” To quote:

All we hear from the neocon Rambo Rescuers of Fox News is of the urgency of bringing these ‘Afghan allies’ to America. Fox News celebrity anchors and their tough-talking guests continue to trip over one another to talk up the wonders of our Afghan allies and the legions of Afghan Americans who have American citizenship, but happen to hang out a lot in Afghanistan. It’s a terrible affront, they all say, that America has failed to lift them all to safety. Between the Republicans and the Democrats, there isn’t a country in the world whose countrymen would not be a target for resettlement in America.—ILANA Mercer, “Empire’s Soldiers Head To Afghanistan To Defend The Homeland And Their Homeboys,” Sep 9, 2021.

We put these criminal aliens on that diet of $2200 from there on. Yet an American who works his entire life will retire on a $1400 monthly stipend, if lucky.

The people who lost everything in Maui, announced Biden, will get a one-time payout of $700. This as billions flow to Ukraine, an exercise in deceit and criminality. It is America last on every level.

The Afghans, hanging onto the planes and being lifted to the United State by American military, so wedded to foreigners all over the world—they too receive $2200 per month.

400,000 Ukrainian soldiers dead to 50,000 Russians.

60,000 Ukrainian children gone missing (but the crook Zelenski’s kids are just fine); women sold as sex slaves.

INDEED, “The people bathing in blood are in Kiev and Washington, not in Moscow.”

***

Terribly distressing hour, skillfully navigated by Tucker Carlson—who listens and says very little—dominated by a formidable patriot, Colonel Macgregor.

And the permanent State remains untouched. Politicians come and go and nothing changes. Politics is the dead zone.

My Latest:  Win Or Die: Ukraine’s America-Engineered ‘Options’

UPDATE III (8/8/023) Ukraine Destroyed On The Altar Of The Imploding, Morally and Fiscally Bankrupt American Empire

WIN OR DIE, DUMMIES is what Ukrainians are being instructed by the US, its NATO marionettes and the treacherous leader Zelensky, who is protected by the aforementioned forces ~ilana

The depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality … ~ilana

Four minutes and 21 seconds into his YouTube interview with Aaron Mate, John Mearsheimer, a utilitarian political scientist, says this: “Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, made it clear that Ukraine would not be admitted into NATO until it had prevailed in the conflict [with Russia].”

Mearsheimer addresses the purely pragmatic, utilitarian aspect of the reality into which Ukraine was thrust. It cannot win the war with Russia. Therefore, deduces Mearsheimer, Ukraine will not be brought into the NATO alliance.

True. This much we all knew.

WIN OR DIE, DUMMIES

UPDATE (8/3/023): This depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality was seconded by one Dan Sullivan, Republican representative from Alaska.

Following a recent NATO Summit, which, naturally, determined that US stooge and puppet Ukraine would not be rewarded with NATO membership—the Fix News outpost, another fount of establishment deceit, entertained Sullivan for a comment.

Sullivan—with a demented grin you’d expect to see on a patient with end-stage syphilis (a career-destroying line I used on Genghis Bush in 2003)—offered that Ukraine has not won yet. The question was not Ukraine’s admission into NATO, said this Republican reptile; the question was winning against Russia.

WIN OR DIE, DUMMIES is what Ukrainians are being told by the US, its NATO marionettes and the treacherous leader Zelensky, who is protected by the aforementioned forces.

UPDATE III (8/8/023): August 7 was Joni Ernst’s time to make the fur fly. (Cynicism alert.) Ernst, Republican representative from Red Oak, Iowa, proves, in the end, that it is as Dr. Johnson said: “There is no settling the point of precedency between a louse and a flea.” Neoconservative or neoliberal; louse or flea, a pest is a pest.

The words of this particular political pest were the as follows:

Once Republicans explain to us, Americans, the nature of the mission to Iraq, oops, Ukraine—yes, where have I heard such GOP Machiavellian talk before? Rhetorical—we The People will get behind the mission.

“Shock-‘n-awe of the old days,” said Ernst, will garner support for the war in Ukraine.

Oh, and, if this following cliche is new to you: Ernst thinks that our “adversaries do not fear us.” No worries, Ernst. On August 5, also on Fox News, Victor Davis Hanson critiques Obama for the few good things 44 did: returning to Iran monies stolen by the American government. Diplomacy with Russia.

VDH has been avidly cheering for the Ukrainian project—and seems unable to quiet his rhetoric about American foreign-policy Manifest Destiny. His first instinct was to support the Ukrainian endeavor and he holds the most mundane neoconservative views on Russia. Being Neocon, wrong and immoral earns America’s pundits plaudits aplenty.

The tête-à-tête between these two effetes—Fox News’ interchangeable anchor and Sullivan, archetypal Republican—revealed a tidbit that backs my longtime theorizing about Canada: That country is not too serious about tyranny. Canada makes noises about following Uncle Sam. It badly wants to be the USA when it grows up. But it always falls flat. Kudos. Thus, talk aside, Canada contributes minuscule sums to NATO.

In any case, the depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality is that, the United States, via its NATO front, has used Ukraine, mercilessly dangling NATO membership before this poor nation, to attempt to dislodge Putin. Putin is a reactionary Russian patriot, natural ally of any sovereign, conservative nation-state. The radical American objective is to make Russia over in the image of America: an abiding Jacobin stronghold at heart.

UPDATE (8/4/023):  As this writer remarked in commentary about “America’s radical, foreign-policy Alinskyites, in March, 2021, “Certain national-conservative governments in East Europe should be natural allies to conservative policy makers, stateside, if such unicorns existed. Vladimir Putin’s, for example. Before his death, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, one of Russia’s bravest and most brilliant sons, praised Putin’s efforts to revive Russia’s traditional Christian and moral heritage. For example:

In October 2010, it was announced that The Gulag Archipelago would become required reading for all Russian high-school students. In a meeting with Solzhenitsyn’s widow, Mr. Putin described The Gulag Archipelago as ‘essential reading’: ‘Without the knowledge of that book, we would lack a full understanding of our country and it would be difficult for us to think about the future.’ …
If [only] the same could be said of the high schools of the United States. (Via The Imaginative Conservative.)

For a long while, the Russian president patiently tolerated America’s demented, anti-Russia monomania. And, as America sank into the quicksands of what Cons call “Cultural Marxism”I, since the get-go, have framed the new Western dispensation as anti-Whiteness—Putin’s inclinations have remained decidedly reactionary and traditionalist.

He prohibited public sexual evangelizing by LGBTQ activists. He comes down squarely on the side of the Russian Orthodox church, such as when vandals, the Pussy Riot whores, obscenely desecrated the cathedral of Christ the Savior. The Russian leader has also welcomed as refugees persecuted white South Africans, where America’s successive governments won’t even officially acknowledge that they’re under threat of extermination. Also, policies to stimulate Russian birthrates have been put in place by the conservative leader.

The command-and-control US Media have purged any news of peace talks with Russia. “Peace” is a dirty word in the Western Warfare State, for “war is the health of the state.” Ukraine, for its part, is led by a vainglorious fool. “Zelensky is a kept man, his flesh softer than sin under the khaki costume.” For all his Jewish-lineage boasts, Zelensky ought to know that,  “It’s biblical. “A leader who fails to haggle for the lives of his people is a failed leader.”

So, it has been ordained that Ukraine be destroyed on the alter of the imploding, degenerate, morally and fiscally bankrupt American Empire and its European zombie satellite states.

“The US is today running bigger deficits than ever.” According to gold bug Egon von Greyerz, “There is only one buyer of US debt – the Fed.” The last assertion is hard to verify, namely that nobody is now buying US debt. Nevertheless, this is entirely believable.

America Has More Political Appointees In Its Federal Government Than Any Other Developed Democracy

Debt, Federal Reserve Bank, Government, Political Economy, Politics, Republicans

“Shut the hell up”: That’s what you say to the next Republican who bleats at you about the GOP being the party of small government.

If GOPers then argue that governments have grown the world over, but the American government is still the smallest: Yet more lies.

Reports the Economist:

America has far more political appointees in its federal government, some 4,000 in all, than any other developed democracy, according to David Lewis, a political scientist at Vanderbilt University. No one ever really stops to wonder whether, if so many roles can sit empty, all these jobs are needed in the first place. [Of course we wonder out-loud; you just don’t listen]

Presidents used to be free to hand out every job in the government. But in 1881 a spurned office-seeker assassinated President James Garfield. His successor, Chester Arthur, signed into law the act creating the civil service and, with it, the seeds of a permanent bureaucracy that would grow from administration to administration, developing many fine public servants along with an unknown quantity of rot.

In the case that Republicans then tell you that the Democrats have, exclusively, presided over the growth of government that, too, is tummy rot.

“Contrary to popular myth,” wrote James Ostrowski, President of Free Buffalo, in 2002, “every Republican president since and including Herbert Hoover has increased the federal government’s size, scope, or power—and usually all three. Over the last one hundred years, of the five presidents who presided over the largest domestic spending increases, four were Republicans.”

“Include regulations and foreign policy, as well as budgets approved by a Republican Congress, and a picture begins to emerge of the Republican Party as a reliable engine of government growth.”

The Evil Party and the Stupid Party are a political match made in hell.

Most ludicrous is that these huckster Republicans still believe there’s a case to be made for “small government.” Have they looked at the debt clock? Do they think the American State will ever again be small; can ever be shrunk?

National debt stands at over $28 trillion. Each individual taxpayer owes $225,000—and while government will just print money to satisfy and procure voters—Quantitative Easing ad infinitum—taxpayers will still be expected to pay-up on pains of imprisonment.

The Small-Government ship has sailed and some Republicans don’t even know it.

Cryptocurrency’s Max Keiser Vs. Gold’s Peter Schiff

Argument, Debt, Democrats, Donald Trump, Economy, Federal Reserve Bank, Foreign Policy, Republicans, Russia

I’ve never known what to make of the financial expert RT has stuck by, Max Keiser of the eponymous Keiser Report.

I had been more of a Peter Schiff gold devotee. Thing is, the devotion was not returned. Most of Schiff’s clients, especially the small fry, fared poorly over time and seldom or never heard from the money maestro (who himself is very wealthy; broker fees and all).

Schiff is still calling “Bitcoin the latest iteration of fool’s gold and anybody buying it [the] ultimate fool.” Keiser, the choice on the business page of RT (Russia Today), is a Bitcoin guy. Bitcoin is holding the value of assets and then some. Gold? It has been fractionalized (spelling?)—fractional reserve banking has bad connotations!—and manipulated by the brokerages.

Speaking of RT (which once published this writer’s weekly column): Republicans, like the Democrats, speak of that TV station as an arm of the Kremlin (presumably nothing like CNN or MSNBC or WaPo which are never an arm of the Democratic Party).

In truth, Trump conservatives never defended President Trump’s conciliatory position toward Russia and Vladimir Putin. Rather, Republican defense of Trump’s correct stance toward Russia consisted of bolstering his alleged anti-Putin credentials, and boasting that he was ACTUALLY tougher on Russia than the Dems. So weak. So dumb.

It’s never about principled argument with Republicans. In their narrow little minds, the American Empire is supposed to war with Russia. That Trump came to power opposing that position was no reason to reexamine their asinine assumptions.

Since they invariably always fall in-line with neocon and neoliberal foreign-policy orthodoxy—Republicans and conservatives only ever tried to nudge Donald Trump toward America’s wrongheaded, Russia monomania.
