Congress recessed for the summer passing neither the infrastructure nor spending bills that were the focus of all of Washington’s attention for weeks thanks to Krysten Sinema from Arizona. She personally torpedoed the Biden Administration’s signature piece of legislation that took months to wrangle to that point and then gave the whole thing a big John McCain-like thumbs down.
The debt ceiling suspension put in place under Trump has not been renewed. We are currently more than $6 trillion over it as I type this.
Fungal President Joe Biden looked up from his jello cup long enough to implore Congress to extend the eviction moratorium for those behind on rent and mortgage payments which has been in place for more than a year. Estimates are 6.5 million people will now face eviction who are behind on their rent.
U.S. tax-cows have drawn down their savings at an alarming rate while facing this eviction cliff. But, hey, your per child tax credit is now showing up as a monthly check as long as the Post Office stays on the job. By the way, they are refusing to go along with Biden’s plans for forcing all government employees be vaccinated against a virus which isn’t killing anyone anymore.
This latest wave of homeless people wandering the streets of the U.S. over the next year will be used by the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) to demonize the evil Republicans for not DOING SOMETHING about this new crisis.
Never mind that it was wholly manufactured by locking down parts of the world and blowing up both the financial markets and disrupting the natural flow of goods that is a functional economy.
The panic many will feel will be real but the question is who is actually panicking?
Is it the “dirty spreaders” and “anti-science” losers who refuse to take an experimental gene therapy or the ones who ordered all of this insanity in the first place for their own personal and political gain?
Sometimes Losing is Just Losing
At every turn the Biden Administration lost major political battles in the past week. There is no denying that. That is an unqualified good thing. It ensures the anger and frustration over the direction of the country post-Trump will be unstoppable come the mid-term elections despite even the expected voter fraud next fall.
We can count on that just like we could count on it in 2020. But the bigger question I have now is whether or not we’ll actually have those elections if it looks like we’ll have a landslide on the populist side of the political ledger?
What the little people want is anathema to those that congregate every year at Davos, Switzerland to plot out their dystopian future plans for humanity.
So, the odds rise everyday that they will suspend elections in Germany or France as a trial run for next fall’s mid-terms. Book this prediction and double down on it regularly, you might make more on it than in the coming crypto bull market, but only just barely.
When you stop to think this through in normal political calculus, how can Biden and Pelosi spin their failures as anything like victories now? The truth is plain to everyone. They lied, cheated, stole and by all rational accounts staged a coup on January 6th.
They have everything they ever wanted… all the power of the Legislative and Executive branches while simultaneously cowing the Judicial branch into irrelevance …
… and a MILF from ‘Zona undid it all with a press release?
Don’t underestimate the chutzpah of these venal people to try because in Davos’ New Normal all instances of public decency are simply a dog whistle for latent fascists and
white people racists.
But given this string of failures it is no wonder Pelosi is thinking about finally giving up her House seat. After all, what’s left to do after nearly single-handedly destroying every aspect of U.S. legislative procedure. I feel her ennui, there are just no more glass ceilings to break.
Pelosi bluffed hard on the spending and infrastructure bills but forgot that having a 50-50 split in the senate and a united Republican front who knows they are in the mid-term driver’s seat meant that any single Senator with a nominal “D” after their names could take ‘awesome power of the speaker’s gavel’ and shove it right up her saggy, angry bottom.
Cue Sinema, who is truly a free spirit. She also knows the situation in Arizona is a powder keg she doesn’t want to be near when it finally explodes over the results of the election audit.
Action Jackson Reaction
The Davos-beholden Democrat and GOPe reaction to these losses has been increasingly strident and desperate jawboning about the Delta Variant bogeyman while everyone in the West is sick and tired of this nonsense.
Then remember, it was just Monday where Biden was offering $100 to ‘please get the vaccine’ and by the end of the week we’re listening to this ….
This is honestly a bigger needle scratch then when the media turned on a dime about the COVID Lab Leak theory two months ago.
And all of a sudden millions of voices cried out in anger and couldn’t be silenced.
At every turn those in the highest cabinet positions of the Biden junta embarrass themselves with doublespeak and cognitive dissonance that even the most mind-virus addled normie can see as illogical. I know there’s no getting through to some people but it doesn’t take them to have a critical mass simply step back, fold their arms and say, “You know what? No.”
Saying “No” to Davos, however, comes with a terrible price. Just ask the Brits who’ve been locked down for more than a year since winning their ‘freedom’ from the EU via Brexit.
Now add in the vagaries of Mother Nature dealing with an increasingly precarious dance between the Earth’s weakening magnetic field and the Sun’s increasing activity and we have extreme weather all over the globe making the day of every climate alarmist ninny with a diaper on their face and a stick up their ass.
The Western half of the U.S. is either on fire or suffering from a crop-destroying/herd depleting drought which has everyone there looking to a dysfunctional, if not outright paralyzed, FedGov for help but there is none forthcoming. Supply chains for basic goods like meat, lumber, electricity and water are failing and the damage done to them will take years to undo.
These natural disasters wouldn’t be so difficult to deal with if Davos hadn’t pursued this Great Reset operation in the first place and carried it through the first six months of Biden’s anti-Administration.
But, you know, in for a penny, in for millions dead for the greater good.
Davos doesn’t even care about the people who are its staunchest supporters, no less those that it wants to destroy — meat eaters, individualists, white people and Christians, you know, most Americans.
Just look at their home turf of Europe. Floods wiped out whole towns in Germany while the presumed incoming leader, hand-picked of course Davos style, cried crocodile tears over hundreds dead while virtue signaling about Climate Change and laughing at the plight of the plebes he’s expected to lead in a few months.
At the rate the protests in France are going, the ECB will go bankrupt just supplying the Gendarme with tear gas and water cannons.
If you don’t realize that the Delta Variant only exists to make the excuse to cancel any election that is set to go against Davos then you really aren’t paying any attention at all.
Do You Really Need the Jab?
We have reached the moment where Davos’ plans to vandalize the American and European people are coming to fruition.
From this week’s events forward we will be in a state of ’emergency’ described brilliantly in V for Vendetta where the media is used to ratchet up the fear beyond any reasonable level and the people increasingly say, “Oh, bollocks.”
Or, as we say here in the States, “Fuck this noise!”
The ride from here will only get worse and our only recourse is to look to shoring up our local communities rather than hope for any saviors at the ballot box. The rules have changed.
Democracy has been outlawed and the courts neutralized. The push for total control over your movement, your thoughts and your basic right to make your way in the world is no longer protected by law.
In fact, the law is openly hostile to your very existence. Just ask Australians and Canadians.
We’ve always known that public health was the cheat code to tyranny. Now we’re seeing it weaponized in a way that isn’t just creepy, it’s chilling in its inhumanity.
But the kids still think Communists care about them.
There is an urgency to this now that wasn’t there before. In the days after neutralizing Trump they backed off thinking there was more time, that there was more than a full year to stepwise up the pressure on us.
But it turned out that COVID-19 simply wasn’t deadly enough and therapeutics for it strong enough to unmask the agenda behind the operation.
So, Don Lemon can get stuffed if he thinks we’re going to give up our livelihoods when we could just buy ivermectin over the freaking counter and man up. But, that’s not something Don’s good at.
I suggest locking Don in his office and he can Door Dash his tofurkey and bean sprouts between segments of his unwatched television gig subsidized by fake Fed funny money. But no toilet paper for him or the vaxxed. That needs to be reserved for real men eating the meat and growing the soybeans and the sprouts while we sort out the pulpwood shortage he helped create.
So while they think it’s time to turn the unvaxxed into the scapegoats for why we all can’t have nice things, it’s quickly going to turn against them.
People like Don are there to create the consensus to justify the pogroms they envision in their oxygen-starved brains.
I’d smile and say something pithy like molon labe but it would be a little too on the nose.
The Long Dark or Just Long Dollars?
In the end, it’s not all doom and gloom. The signs are everywhere that the bonds holding this cartel of oligarchs together are breaking. I’ve talked about this in previous pieces. Honestly, you have to be a complete nincompoop to think Jamie Dimon and the narcissists on Wall St. will roll over to Herr Schwab without going a few rounds in the Oligarch version of the UFC Octagon.
Yellen may be trying to destroy Wall St. for Schwab but Powell and the FOMC are still on the job, even if they sound as incoherent on inflation as the CDC Director does on, well, everything.
I ask you to think again about the last two Fed meetings.
First, he drained overseas markets of dollars by raising the Reverse Repo Rate to 0.05%. This week he created a standing Repo Facility for foreign counterparties to hand them back those dollars. They’ll do this only because they are now desperate for them but it will drain them of their high-quality Repo collateral, i.e. US. Treasuries.
Since the Fed knows there will be no new U.S. Treasuries issued for the next few months thanks to the debt ceiling kerfluffle being unresolved, they need a supply of them to hand back to the banks they know are going to be in need of them.
The result was the first $1+ trillion print of the Fed’s domestic Reverse Repo Facility, which hands Treasuries back to the banks in exchange for dollars providing them with now very scarce collateral.
Downstream this should further destabilize overseas markets (read: Europe) while handing Wall St. and domestic banks all the collateral they could ever need to cover this dangerous period we are entering.
This, to me, doesn’t seem like Powell is playing in the same key as Yellen.
My bet is that whatever the Fed says at Jackson Hole will tell us just where the Fed stands in all of this and that will tell us whether or not we have any friends at all in high places.
The storm created by Davos has made landfall. The next two months will tell us just who is and who is not still on their payroll or is compromised by them. To me the key is the Fed. We’ll find out soon enough if Wall St. really isn’t down with the Commintern.
Either way, we’ve run out of time to prepare.
Join my Patreon if you aren’t down with the Commintern
I have to disagree with Tom’s analogy on this one.
Every Floridian including Tom knows that the back side of a storm is generally the weaker side. The front side has more wind, it has the storm surge, it does most of the damage. The back side (after the eye passes over) is mostly added rain. Its still a hurricane and you still have to respect mother nature’s power, but the part after the eye is generally nowhere near as dangerous as the front side.
But this isn’t the eye of the storm. This is the part in the children’s story where the Chinese merchants have sold the emperor 40ft containers filled with invisible cloth, emptying the King’s bank accounts. The emperor went on parade in his birthday suit, and Donald Trump pointed and yelled out that the emperor is butt naked.
And this part wasn’t in the children’s story, but emperor Biden just held a press conference, naked except for the tightie-whities pulled over his head, to tell us he is wearing one article of clothing and thus he isn’t actually naked.
If this was really the leader of the free world, the Chinese merchants could not have sold him invisible cloth. Biden is a dementia patient who, in when his mental faculties were still there, solicited and accepted bribes — he was known as the senator from MBNA before he took bribes from Ukraine and Beijing.
It isn’t just Biden. Rank and file troops fought incredibly brave in Afgan / Iraq, but the generals and admirals at the Pentagon managed to lose the war(s) anyway. The FBI was spying on and harassing Martin Luther King and looking the other way on mafia murders long before they tampered with evidence against Mike Flynn. Customs and Border patrol get out-witted by uneducated illegal immigrants every day, not to be outdone by the DEA which stops (by their own estimates) less than 5% of illegal narcotics. Elon Musk sticks his middle finger up at the SEC in public, but he bought off enough members of Congress that it doesn’t matter. And speaking of the financial regulators, Nancy Pelosi isn’t even trying to hide her repeated insider trading.
The public no longer believes a word lying Fauci says, so they dragged out CDC bureaucrat Walensky and then surgeon general Murthy to tell excactly the same lies… and the are suprised that the exact same lies told by a different bureaucrat yields the same public distrust.
Biden is wandering around in public naked except for the tightie-whities on his head, and Trump pointed out the emperor is naked… but the problems in Washington DC are far more indigenous than just Biden or just Pelosi or just McConnel or just Schumer or just the health bureaucrat du jour. They are all the problem.
I like the back side of hurricanes. Its a brief period of rest before we have to go outside and start to clean up the mess. The emperor is still naked, and looks stupid with his underwear on his head.
Very sobering commentary, Tom.
Yet, quite accurate from my perspective.
I don’t know if Sinema is a mother, but she is openly bi-sexual, so I guess that makes her a BILF.
Given her stances lately, the AZ Dem machine might not manufacture or steal votes for her next election. She could probably run as a R and nobody in AZ would bat an eye.
MILF, BILF, potato, po-tah-to. Saving the country 3.5 trillion is hawt.
I have always enjoyed reading your articles and appreciate your insight, Tom. What do you think will be the undoing for the Davos elite? Here in Europe, they are tightening the screws on the “unvaccinated” and I sense it will come to a breaking point in the next several months. I don’t foresee a peaceful resolution but, we can only hope they come to their senses soon.
Hubris and basic economics.
Why do you all hust roll over.There should Not be a peaceful solution as they are quite obviously evil antihumans.Learn and use every survival technique possible.Prep,gold,silver,comms,grow and preserve food.Stop witing for these vipers to suddenly turn human,your kids and grandkids depend on you.Who are They to conmure up a Live Exercise plandemic,lie,lie,lie,terrorize and imprison you.They have 0 legitimacy,0 legality,make them prove their true authority-they are Not your creator or an agent thereof.Queen E. Was an imposter and stole legal heir from Hanover royal branch’s right to ascension.HSBC is eyeballs deep into moneylaundering for illicit nasty enterprises including pedoperv rings.
Many will be amazed at what is revealed in the coming months.Join or start a mutualaid group,prepper/survivor group,Hamm radio group,get a scanner radio if you are allowed to listen to public channels used by emergency personnel.Nothing is as it seems.Help other decent people,peace! :-)
Le Monde reports 15k on the streets of Paris, 200k nationwide. Multiply these figures, muck like VAERS data by something like 10x or more to begin to estimate the truth.
The important indicator is what the police are doing. They are still brutally repressing anti-lockdown protests. We know where the sympathies of police leadership lie, to wit kneeling bedore BLM or, in Colorado, telling the rank and file to stand down while AntiFA and others attacked a “Support the Blue” rally. You’ll only know the elite’s gig is up when you start seeing LEOs stand down or start taking smiling selfies with the protestors (which they were doing in London last year).
Meanwhile, the Aussies have deployed the military to help the police roust sunbathers from those COVID-danger-zone beaches. As long as they actively do that job, rather than yuck it up with the proles and then move on, we are a long way from the end of this BS.
That is very true. Hence my article from the other day imploring the police to do exactly that.
To Tom Re “imploring the police.” Seems a bit late for that. The police are enforcers, the enemy. They need to be made their-life or their-death offers they can’t refuse.
I disagree. It’s always time to offer someone peace rather than the stick
S.nist masonbastards are allied only with each other,they are Legion.Bill Cooper posted detailed vid on bitchute before mysterious death.You all better learnup to survive.Learn the symbolism,significant dates,numbers,meanings.Way more Humans need to stand up to this especially lawyers,dr.s,medataff,researchers,port workers,farmers.We know some of what the a.holes care about where they live,where they dock their polluting yachts.National day of prayer,exorcism,Strike!!!!!!Enemy seeks to degrade humanity then Massacre us After they Extract terror and $!!$$!$&$&!!

White space and proper punctuation would help you better get the point across.
In my view Tom, you are so far ahead of most who comment on the world and explain what is in our future. In fact, most media sources are down with the Great Reset (Communism 3.0).
I have some slight differences with you. First “Commintern” signifies Russia as the main predator seeking global communism. Next, I believe the Fed is fully committed along with Wall Street and the corporatists who benefit. The system is broken because sound money is irreparably broken by the complete world of fiat currencies, and mostly by the world’s reserve currency, the fake dollar.
Sound money is the only solution. It will will in the end and destroy a totalitarian takeover of humanity. Why and how do I know? #BitcoinFixesEverthing
I use the Commintern motif to highlight that it may have officially ended in the 1940’s but the vestiges of it live on today all throughout our culture and media.
And yet…………..do you agree that the Cold War efforts made by America and the Soviets to undermine each other’s cultures by penetrating their institutions resulted in the West being encumbered by a communitarian parasite, and the East by an oligarchic one, long after the Cold War ended?
That Cultural Marxism in the West is essentially a toxin that was introduced long ago by Soviet agents (?), who have not survived to see us sicken from it?
Or do you dispute the effect exists, or believe it has different architects?
Do you only read what want to read and not see the implications of what I write? What in God’s name do yo think the phrase “down with the Commintern” means?
I’m still a little unclear Tom.
Are you agreeing that a) some kind of manufactured trigger event IS imminent, but you believe that the stupefied, indoctrinated and those with COVID PTSD will still not demand the Great Reset to alleviate their resultant suffering?
Or that b) despite their demands, the Davosians will for some reason be unable to enact it?
Or are you suggesting that c) NO such crisis event is imminent, and so the Davosians will simply keep clownishly tightening their grip as more and more people slip through their fingers, until their generational Malthusian scheme falls apart and their dupes realise that their Emperor has no clothes?
Or D all of the above consecutively and concurrently
A crisis event is not imminent, and yet is somehow imminent?
How very Schrodinger.
“the vagaries of Mother Nature dealing with an increasingly precarious dance between the Earth’s weakening magnetic field and the Sun’s increasing activity and we have extreme weather all over the globe”
If you’re a member of the ancient hereditary families still around you’d want to kill off as many of your potential competitors as possible, front-running the disaster.
Very good overview.
One more thing. Communists are not mentally healthy and live in their echo chamber where their stress and panic grows without calming information from outside.
This may play out like 1991 coup in the Soviet Union. There is no information until today what caused this coup. In the august 1991 nothing special happened in the Soviet Union. It was a summer here, people had vacations and there was absolutely nothing what demanded immediate action. Even Gorbachev himself went to vacation.
Communist echo chamber induced hysteria about nonexistent enemy forced them to act, bring tanks to the street and burn down Soviet Union without any reason whatsoever.
The hysteria what we see right now was already present in the Davos meeting in 2019. After January 6th, some kind of invisible dam broke and hysteria flooded down the Swiss mountains like recent flood in Germany.
” We’ll find out soon enough if Wall St. really isn’t down with the Commintern.”
Serious question…you don’t know?
Regarding certain distinctions between communism/Marxism and whether or not this is what we’re actually seeing here in America, I recommend reading the review of Mark Levin’s new book American Marxism by Paul Kengor at the American Spectator. Kengor explains that Levin’s book has made a mark by distinguishing “Marxism” from this new thing that Levin calls “American Marxism”. Two completely separate ideologies. My point is that instead of many of us having to defend what we see as Marxism here and Communism there (but never in perfect Marxist/Comm textbook form), we no longer have to … as it’s not Marxism/Comm at all, but instead an American original with it’s own separate and distinct ideology. And it has a name that people need to get used to (let’s name the enemy); American Marxism. Come on, this is America afterall…we may follow or borrow occasionally, but ultimately we’re going to create our own version of whatever it is. Seems that’s already happened.
Great article btw, Tom. Haven’t heard any succinct explanations for that new Fed facilities.
The real Marx, as in Karl Marx the man himself, was what we now call a trust fund baby. Without a regular payment from his wealthy capitalist father, Marx would have starved to death or been forced to get a job like a normal person. He wouldn’t have time or energy at the end of the day to write all his nonsense.
Marx was ultimately too lazy to finish his own book, so after his death, one of his assistants compiled his notes and assembled them into the book that Marxists try to claim is “the real Marx”. The real Marx was a pile of rambling (mostly incoherent) notes from a man who lived off his capitalist father.
Modern Marxists play activist in antifa. When those folks were rampaging around NYC and got arrested, it turned out that many of them are …. wait for it… lazy trust fund babies.
The co-founder of BLM whines about racism while buying expensive real estate properties (plural) in nice neighborhoods.
Marxists are all the same. Trust fund babies who were spoiled as children and never learned to work. Not even cushy jobs at their father’s business.
Socialism is the same as Marxism, except socialism uses taxpayers as their sugar daddy. Socialism only works until they run out of other people’s money,
Excellent comment sir. It’s an ideology based in the unquenchable envy of trust fund babies. Envy born of their own inner self loathing.
Marx was a kazharian fake jew from the…….R.child family.Saw the family tree with suppirting docs elsewhere.Very hateful,antiChristian/white things supposedly said by Marx.Lenin,Trotsky,Hitler were all Kazharianfakejews.Mao was trained and funded by R.child and gang. Blantifas gets lots of $$ from soros Sunrise Foundation which is a falseflag terrorist group which recruits teens.Other blantifathugs are mercenaries/f.b.I.Antifawatch.net.Patriots4Truth.org,henrymakow.FED needs to be abolished,they are a cancer upon the world.Silver/gold/bitcoin.Regarding ca drought:Self-inflicted wound due to mismanagement,corruption,and……..They dumped the LARGE EXCESSES THEY WERE RECORDED AS HAVING IN ALL AQUIFERS AS OF 2019.Astute commenters on z.h. This week posted Proof of this as a screencapture graphic from ca govt. Site.Besides this insane fact,theres rampant weather wars.Texageddon was an attack-No way it was natural.
Some of the problems listed in Tom’s piece can be traced back to the general softening of Western attitudes. Most men have become pussies, in simple words. And this has infected the government as well, since the government is composed of ordinary men, not supermen. I go into detail on all this at my blog RIGHT HERE.
The citizenry is the backbone of the state. It’s not the elite who makes things turn. Without a strong citizenry, there can be no progress.
I’m sticking to the previous analogy. Davos is a cornered animal that will try something desperate, but ultimately will end up someone else’s meal.
I would take exception to Powell and Dimon being independt of Davos (WEF) – blackrock manages powells portfolio and Fink is on board of directors of WEF! The only casuality is your rights New Normal! world order o own nothing and be happy
It’s a theory Mike that is supported by some of the weird things we’ve seen recently. It may be hope on my part or it may be the splintering of a Davos Crowd that has lost too many skirmishes and can’t close escrow so some of the rats are gettting off the ship
That was quite good Tom.
The situation is very grim-here is my take.
The media – both news and entertainment – have now politicized nearly everything in our society as an extremely powerful mechanism of control.
Most humans emotionally connect their personal belief system to the belief system of their political party, and so then any attack on their party – legitimate or otherwise – is interpreted by their brain as an attack on themselves. Reason and logic then jump out the nearest window as raw emotion takes the helm.
This is an extremely damaging and regrettable exploit of human nature. Worse, this exploit is as easy to execute as flipping a light switch for the majority of the population.
The largest PSYOP in history is unfolding right before our eyes, armed with incalculable amounts of human behavior data collected from internet and smart phone usage geared toward manipulating us to walk in lock-step into the incinerator of our own destruction.
We’re dealing with a captured media and the transparently obvious military grade psychological operations they are relentlessly employing, the millions of sheep that believe their every obvious lie and preach it as gospel, and their near total obliviousness to the self-evident fact that this plandemic is a blatant takeover of the world by a handful of psychopaths.
Here are two essential articles detailing how politicians hack our brains with fear as a means of political control:
If you found this information useful, please share it with this link:
Tom, how does the tyrannical crackdown in Europe against anti-lockdown (not anti-vax, anti lockdown) protestors effect elections in a few months?
We are seeing video of German authorities using police force against peaceful anti-lockdown protestors. There is a video of polizei throwing an elderly woman to the ground for her own safety, and another of a kid crying while his mother was beaten with batons.
Does merkel think these videos won’t effect CDU voting in October? Does laschet?
Many Germans worry that AfD and other parties might be too extreme, after that pesky WW2 business. But if CDU is going to beat up old ladies and lock up mothers while their children look on… all so the economy can go full Weimar?
Suddenly there isn’t much difference between AfD and CDU.
A few months ago, The Green Party looked like they would take over German politics… then Germans saw what the true price of green policies would be. The greens are no longer a factor.
Will Herr Laschet speak out in support of anti lockdown protests, or should we take a look at the SpD candidate?
We know Davos favors merkel and merkel 2.0. That doesn’t mean German voters will support polizei beating old ladies in the street.
Someone who supports vaccine availability without passports and without crushing the economy looks really good going into elections.
Laschet beating old ladies so he can shut down the economy that props up the EU? That’s a lose lose proposition
these are very good questions and I don’t think they will help Laschet and the CDU at all, honestly. I do think the Greens peaked too early and that there could be a price to pay at the ballot box in a few weeks.
But, at the same time, they have to feel they’ve got the situation under control there if they are willing to beat old ladies in the street. After all, it didn’t do much to change the voting results in places like Spain when the authorities there did the same thing during the Calalonian portests.
We’ll see. I’d love to see a backlash against the CDU/Greens but I don’t know if this will be enough.
If we assume Laschet wins and he supports continued lockdowns…. that means the German economy tanks, taking German welfare and EU financing down with it.
Continued lockdowns is winning the battle but losing the war, regardless of which politician does it.
Agreed. But I don’t think they believe they have the time to be nice about it anymore. You can see the coordinated effort now by the fascists/commies to say, “Okay, we’ve indulged you enough. Submit or be destroyed.”
I think the big global Fuck you is coming. Because once the police are overwhelmed in one place they will be overwhelmed everywhere.
I’ve said davos is a cornered animal and may do something crazy in a fruitless attempt at survival.
But an economic lockdown is self defeating regardless of who does it or why. Ask davos brother Clinton and he will tell you “it’s the economy stupid”. Ask Frau Merkel if she wants to defy Biden on nordstream 2, and she will say it’s the economy stupid.
We are seeing this in the USA too. Did Biden and pelosi really want eviction moratoriums to end, or did the solvency of big banks, private landlords and FNMA leave them no other choice?
You might be right that they opt for beatings in the next few months. That isn’t a winning strategy and everyone (including davos) knows it.
They could lower the threshold for PCR testing, which would miraculously reduce the number of reported cases… and then declare a hollow victory over covid. Some started doing that last month.
Or they could wreck their own economies and discover that guilotines are very uncomfortable.
I don’t expect a cornered animal to make a rational decision. Nothing says Laschet won’t get elected short term and later get a no confidence vote as the German economy collapses.
Democrat pollsters are already predicting a republican sweep in 2022. The incumbent party usually has a set back, but if the economy is bad it will be a full blown opposition sweep. A Biden lockdown now is a guaranteed republican sweep a year from now. Pelosi doesn’t care, but the other Democrat votes that she needs do.
I know dozens of bankers in NYC who have already told JPM, GS and the like that they will not be returning to the office. Of course, the CEOs are going to fire them, paying lots of severance.
Everyone knows the severances now will be a lot better than severances will be after the rent/mortgage moratorium gets recognized on bank balance sheets.
The only German politician talking common sense in support of the people and the German nation is Sahra Wageknecht of Die Linke Partei. Her own party hates her for her open advocacy for Germany as a nation, and some of her economic comments seem more in support of a German economy for the German people than you hear from anyone in the CDU, SPD, and certainly the Greens.
When the government forced through the last lockdown to save the hospitals from being overwhelmed, she had the temerity to suggest adding more capacity in beds and healthcare workers, and then actually backed that up by showing how much capacity had been removed in the pursuit of profit since the 1990s, which would have more than covered a COVID shortfall.
She has also pointed out the paradox that Green policies are just fine for the urban elites, but will crush the people on the land who are supposed to keep the urban elites fed.
Who would have expected common sense from a socialist? I guess that’s how the draw you in.
“Never mind that it was wholly manufactured by locking down parts of the world and blowing up both the financial markets and disrupting the natural flow of goods that is a functional economy.”
“Wholly” is a major stretch. The Hoovervilles were steadily growing before covid.
I’m not sure why Tom didn’t put my last comment through… maybe it was too long? So here is an executive summary:
All countries must choose between the following TWO choices (everything else is a subset of these two choices):
(1) Take your chances on a virus that has a 99.7% survival rate (actually much higher if you are younger than 70). Return to pre-March 2020 lifestyle. No mask theater. The virus will continue to mutate and become indistinguishable from the common flu. Like the flu vaccine, covid vaccines will be 50% effective. If you are over 70 years old — enjoy your time with your grand-kids or playing golf, Don’t waste your remaining days cowering in fear over something inevitable that you have no control over
(2) Stay in lockdown. 100% chance of insolvency, economic suffering, and the health problems that come with poverty. Governments can print currency, but they can’t print stuff to put on store shelves to spend that currency on — we are already seeing shortages in many categories. Unemployed people don’t pay rent, they don’t pay taxes and most importantly they don’t create/deliver goods and services the government wants to buy with newly printed currency.
That is what the data is telling us. That is what the science is telling us.
Even for government bureaucrats, option 2 is already difficult and will be infeasible within a few months. Supply problems are popping up everywhere
James if i missed a comment it is not any formal thing. Sometimes i just miss them.
Now you’ve had a chance to digest Gensler’s public obeisance to the Davosians and their Great Reset scheme, do you still think that private crypto has a long-term future and Amerika is going to resist the globalists?
Because I think we can now measure their lifespan in weeks – there has never been such an array of national leaders more enthusiastic for global technocommunism and more eager to take their seat at that table.
I love that clip from V for Vendetta, it says it all, and the timing is perfect for where we are in this state freak show. Getting ready for breakdown. Driving for 16 hours listening to various radio stations the past few days all the state-casters could talk about was covid, delta variant, peppered with a bit of climate change emergency, and the imminent mass evictions, and reminding us of that attempt to take over the government that was January 6th. I mean they are nervous and getting ready to eat their own.
It’s truly chilling isn’t it, Karen. Lovely to see you stop by here, by the way. I’ve read your work for years and am a huge fan. I’m a little star-struck here.
Tom, back at you, I love your work and it is so needed.
Yup. The only hope we have now is that somehow, the Davos crowd fucks up.
Is a possibility. Anything can happen during the transition of complex systems.
Tom – if you value information and have spare funds for 300TB worth of hard drives (to include backups), look up the libgen.io project which backs up all the scientific medical research for Sci-Hub plus a huge archive of medical and other scientific textbooks. Libgen makes available the entire archive via torrents, you can ask but I’m sure you can figure it out, no links here to bypass spam filters. They contain medical and scientific textbooks and all research papers for decades and I’ve used it to fix my own medical problems so the information is priceless. Some papers have serious errors and peer review problems in the industry but it doesn’t matter, it contains everything and people like me manage to weed through the errors through sheer volume and repeated experiments. You especially also want the textbooks for alternative doctors. We need as many independent people to backup the wealth of science before they close in, but not all of us have the funds or bandwidth. You’d have to protect the backups in a faraday cage. Several thousand in costs, but out of everything on the public internet this is the holy grail. Someone mention to James Corbett if you have the chance, can’t contact him.
I’m translating your post for the website “Le Saker Francophone”. Could you explain to me what “Action Jackson Reaction” ? I don’t have this cultural reference.
Action jackson was a bad action movie from the 1980’s. It’s just a play on Action/Reaction because sometimes I let my right brain to the talking
Just stumbled on this. Suprised it did not get much press…..intrusive banking proposal…
