What’s So Wrong With AOC’s Free Money ?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to be the most visible aggressive proponent of this Modern Monetary Theory bullbuzz going around lately, and I gotta admit it does sound tempting at first blush.

I mean the filthy rich have been doing it for themselves like forever, right, so why not for the rest of us, too ?

Her sales pitch , boiled down to its basic goo goes like this :  It doesn’t matter how much “borrowed into existence” debt is created because we can just fire up the good ol’ counterfeit machine and print up as many Yankee Dollahs as we need to pay it all off . That’s what we’ve been doing for decades, and despite a few glitches (like the crash of ’08 !) it’s been working great for us back here in the USSA.

So far (as in,   “up til now” )  however, it looks like all of this free money has gone only to the rich. It goes to them as “loans” (low-to-no interest , by the way) who launder it by “investing” in worthless imaginary shit like Apple or Microsoft stock , or gazillion dollar palaces in the Hamptons that can ALWAYS and FOREVER  be bought today for 1 dollah and sold tomorrow for 2 (netting a nice profit, over and over again).  Any shortfall in that scam is made up for by flogging the serfs to work harder for less money, or ( better yet !) . . . shipping their factories and jobs off to China where slaves are happy to produce the same items for fraction of the cost of making it here at home. Voila ! Lower prices and higher profits in one swoop.

The fantasy she is selling is to convince the peasants that they, too,  can get in on the free money long-con .   Of course anyone with a brain cell  intuitively  knows there’s something wrong with that picture, BUT  they sure would like some of that free money for themselves, too . Like , why should the rich get it all ?  AND  shit, we’ve gotten away with it this far, haven’t we?  Why not for a bit longer ?  And if the whole shebang IS all going to come crashing down anyway then why shouldn’t   WE   (poor folk) get in on some free buckets of honey  before they’re all gone ?

AOC presents a pretty compelling argument, insofar as the poor folk are concerned, but there are a few itsy bitsy little flaws (like mass starvation, world war and certain death) but , hey, nothing’s perfect right ? Here is what’s really wrong with her sales pitch :

1.   First and foremost : the rich guys who write the rules and make the laws will  never ever   let any more poor folk in on the racket to any greater degree than the poor folk are already in on the skim.  In other words, she can not get such legislation passed, and so the  temptation she dangles is just another politician-style lie to get herself elected.

2.   Unbeknownst to the poor starving masses in America (who sincerely do picture themselves as exploited victims)  America’s middle and lower and lowest classes are themselves beneficiaries of the scam already .  They’re just not “math aware” enough to see it clearly. You see it is not America’s poor who are being ripped off. It is the people outside our borders who are being bled dry.  They are forced to borrow worthless dollars (fake money)  and pay it back with REAL money , REAL work, and REAL  products. 

Everybody in America ( including the poor) have been enjoying the benefits of this free ride ever since the US Dollar became  the World Reserve Currency in 1944 (treaty of Bretton Woods, ratified by the 44 largest countries, including the USSR). If you wonder what the “financial system” is, well that system (Bretton Woods) is the system. The ratified agreement made it a legally enforceable fact that international debt would be denominated in U.S. Dollars. It made the dollar King.

Don’t break your brain on this point. It’s way more simple than it’s made to appear. Basically, if I loan you dollars then you can’t pay me back in wampum. You must get your hands on dollars to pay me back if I say so. And the courts of the world will back me up on it. No exceptions.

3.   No one knows the upper limit of just how far (or for how much longer)  this ridiculous ripoff can continue before the true victims  (i.e. the rest of the world) reach the end of their rope and declare  “No mas ! ” But there is one thing they all know and agree upon :  The world is teetering on the brink of that “system”  breaking under the load of too much real money being demanded from real producers (i.e. the rest of the world)  to pay back too much fake money to counterfeiters  (i.e. the USA). 

In other words,  no way  will the powers that be hasten ‘The End Of The World As They Know’ It by giving freebies to ungrateful poor people. Those same poor people, however, might soon hit the end of their rope, and put an end to the world of the rich anyway. In other words, revolt.

4. THEREFORE AND ON THE OTHER HAND :   Rich folks might  be persuaded to pay poor folks not to revolt,  and that is the card that AOC is playing .   China would like to see this  because it will speed up doomsday for the USA’s hegemonic empire. That’s why China has been so enthusiastically bank rolling every Democrat, publisher and commie agitator they can get their hands on by any and ever means possible, fair or foul. Buy, bribe, blackmail, trick, persuade, fake, or do it themselves and pretend to be someone else. Makes no difference to them, just as long as it works.

The Chinese Communist Party knows beyond the slightest shadow of any doubt that they cannot rule the world until the US Dollar Reserve Currency does NOT  rule the world.

5. So, probably yeah. We could all get free money for a while  (just not very much and not for very long ) . . . BUT it will trigger the true end of US hegemony and hand the world over to the CCP on a china platter. Pun intended.

 Conclusion :  If you do get the free money, use it to learn Mandarin.

It’s not what you think

If you have been feeling uneasy recently in a distinctly peculiar sort of way, then this essay may help you relax, a little. The current situation is not what you probably think it is. Neither you nor the world are that much crazier than it (or you) have ever been.

That weird cognitive disorientation you feel is the effect of actions inflicted upon you that are known as PsyOps ( Psychological Operations.) People used to just call it propaganda, but in these days labels have to sound more “techno” to be taken seriously. It’s just more bullshit. By my age you get used to such crap, and try not to give it any undue respect. In other words, you are being shot at , in a “virtual” manner of speaking, by both sides in a very large and important world conflict. Their narcissism knows no bounds. Their psychological manipulations are not even close to being as workable or effective as they flatter themselves to believe, but it does fuck people up when being administered from multiple fire-hoses, 24/7 , for years at a stretch. People need true information in order to think straight. They feel awful when they just can’t get it.

So who’s fighting ? Pretty much the same sides that fought the last few big ones ( World Wars 1, 2 and Cold) and pretty much over the same issues. That should come as no surprise, and I’m guessing that it doesn’t, really. Political divisions are based on human nature, which changes very slowly, if at all.

Here is the situation in a nutshell. This war is very very much a continuation of the previous war , that didn’t really stop in 1945. It just fell back and regrouped. And why would it stop, since so little actually changed. There was an intermission, that’s all. All the players still had most of their previously held “wherewithal” necessary to the prosecution of war. Yes the Axis military got their toys smashed, and a few of the worst war criminals were executed, imprisoned or made to sit in the corner for a few years . . . but not bloody many. Most of them were back up and running by 1950. The wants and intentions of the major factions were exactly the same as before, and so their objectives and actions were the same too.

The material wherewithal (cash, industry and real estate) of those factions didn’t change by much either , except to the extent that democratic republics got a few decades head start on the fascist dynasties and communist masses. But it wasn’t long before everyone was back in the game. Left, Right and Center , just as before.

We are now at the internecine violence stage of that Great Game . For all practical purposes this might as well be 1939. Right on schedule. World Wars happen every few decades , so this one is right on schedule ( a tad overdue actually.)

You might think I’m being hyperbolic. Fine. Suit yourself. The world doesn’t not care whether you believe what’s in front of your nose or not, and neither do I.

I just want you to understand that the “boggled mind” and broadband hysteria that you and everybody else has been experiencing is not some unexplainable ‘never-before-seen’ new aspect humanity. And it’s no accident, either. It’s the effect of being PsyOpped , so relax. You’re not insane.

As of this writing the rhetoric is rising and battle lines are being drawn. I do not see anyone backing off or backing down, so that means the next stage is violence. and by that I do not mean hooligans and citizens mixing it up on the streets. I mean organized military violence. Between nations. If you choose the wrong side on that one, when that time comes around. it can go very badly for you. So please, clear your head and choose wisely. The Chinese Communist Party are very bad people.

On January 20th, 2021 three million seven hundred twenty-nine thousand four hundred seventeen Chinese Twitter bots (“Twitterbots”) will anoint Joe Biden POTUS

Of course anointing him so doth not make it so, but they will say he is President, nonetheless. No need for a full length essay when the headline says it all. I invented that number, by the way, but it is factually damned close (based on published facts) , and is certainly an underestimate of the real number of anti-American political “bots” in play by our adversaries in the ongoing saga of the 2020 US presidential election.

Confusion is confusing, which explains why they work so hard to keep you confused

It’s all so confusing. Reality is confusing. Except it isn’t, really. You have understood it well enough for quite some time now, you just don’t choose to get up off your fat (safe) arses to do anything about it. Just like me. And there’s is a perfectly rational explanation why that is.

The horrifying reality  ( and yes, it is horrifying, and yes it is also reality )  is that the economic system of the world is a single system.  A Muslim or Chinese or American billionaire is  . . . first and foremost . . .  simply a billionaire, and that billion has no loyalties. Money has no moral sense, nor patriotic fervor.  It’s just wampum.   The control of money ( and thus the ownership of all things, all salaries, all institutions, all possible interests.)  has no national boundaries. It respects no national values, and obeys no (ridiculously fictitious) “national elections.”  The United States Presidential Election is not an election.   It is a transnational “auction”  attended by all of the billionaires from all over the world.  It will be “won”  by the most powerful faction of players (i.e. has greater control of the money). Right now it looks like CCP and its stake holders have the advantage, but that could change . 

How could it not change ? Things are breaking, shrinking, disappearing (open communication of sensible thought being not the least of which.) The world is getting weaker as a result, and the value of peasant votes weakens right along with it.

In other words, the election and the votes themselves do not mean shit because everything that could possibly pertain to the election and to the votes  (e.g. who got the most votes,  or which votes were legal or illegal, or fraudulent etc.)  is for sale to the aforementioned billionaires.   Even the information about that information is for sale.  That’s why the Chinese Communist Party bought up the  mainstream media,  or suborned it with cash and blackmail as pregame warm-up step #1.  Just as they have also done with Academia,  and the “Uni-Party”. [ Uni-Party;  the financial elites of all stripe considered as a single, politically collaborative,  entity].

The volume , magnitude  and awe inspiring chutzpah of the lies being told (to the American electorate in particular, at the moment) is so overwhelmingly overwhelming that I’m losing interest in even talking about it any more.It would take a science fiction writer of considerable imaginative skill to even match the depth of deceit and betrayal  that is simply the day-to-day business of the folks who run our world,  and nearly impossible to exaggerate.

It’s all very confusing because deliberate confusion is the primary product of our times. It’s what they’re selling. Hell, they’re shoving it into your face whether you asked for it or not. Why ? Because confusion is better even than secrecy for hiding the dire fuckery they are up to.

No one thinks any of the proposed solutions are going to work. No one. Everyone knows the system is irreparably broken. Everyone. The only question is about what the hell is going to happen as a consequence? Theories abound. Here’s mine :

Some folks are going to get wiped out. Others will be rubbed out. And a precious few will bask in the drug-rush of temporary ( very temporary) and reduced power as the combined strength of failing shrinking illogical systems gets smaller and weaker and dumber.

Most of us , however, ( and here is the good news) are simply going to continue doing what we have always done, which is also the only thing we are able to do. And that is to go on living until further notice.

It’s official: The US has gone coup coup

The government of the United States of America is completely capable of knowing the precise number of legal votes that have been cast for all candidates in the 2020 national election that took place on November 3. Do you not think our empire is able to count? The numbers were known immediately. Period.

The explanation for those numbers not being revealed is that there is a battle raging over which version of the numbers will become official. Which is to say, an ongoing coup d’etat . I say coup rather than election because the election was over a week ago, and what’s happening now is a fight . It will be won by the side with the most power. In other words, a coup.

So, until the official version is certified, the country is officially coup coup.

Free Drinks Tomorrow

Back in the early days of the computer revolution it was called “Vaporware,” promises of astoundingly wonderful hardware or software that was going to be coming out “real soon now” , only to never appear. All that came out were more promises . Vapor, distracting from the reality of ever increasing piles of bullshit.

Enter the new age of political vaporware. Huge changes, sweeping reforms, stunning revelations followed by arrests and jailings of this or that big name political malefactor. Yadda, yadda, yadda. After four years I’m just sick of it. Put up or shut up . Call me when Hillary is in Super Max, Joe seeks asylum in Beijing, and Julian Assange has been pardoned.. Y’all be sure also to let me know just as soon as that election fraud thing ends in a second term for the Donald, and even one fraudster goes to jail.

Until then, I would be quite pleased if both sides just shut the fuck up.

I don’t want free drinks in a tomorrow that’s always a day away.

I thirst for justice today.

If you could dump Trump FOREVER . . . would you ?

I have a straightforward question for all Democrats and Trump haters everywhere.

If you could dump Trump FOREVER . . . would you ?

Well, obviously that depends on whether you like the Donald or you do not. If you don’t like him ( a lot ) and you could dump him ( forever ) then the answer to the question should be a no brainer, right ?

So why don’t they do it?

It would be so easy. Just call Trump’s bluff. Count the ballots and prove that not only did Joe Biden win the presidency fair and square , but also prove to the entire world (including his most ardent supporters) once and for all, that Donald Trump is both a loser and a god damned liar. It would take all of two days , max, do do that.

So why don’t they do it ?

I can think of a reason.

Can you ?

Freudian slippage

America’s media ( and I mean all of ’em) , Social Networks and Big Tech in all of it’s manifestations are in a virtual orgy of self congratulatory celebration of Joe Biden’s proclaimed ( but not yet factual) victory over Donald Trump.

So how do they explain that unanimity of joyousness, exactly, since more than 48 % of Americans are far from happy about the outcome?

You might actually think that the media (and Social Networks and Big Tech) were all prejudiced from the start , and opposed to the wishes of roughly half of the people in America (or more than half, if that voter fraud thing proves out.)
