Spengler;
The Democrats’ Paranormal Economics
An excerpt at PJM is more pithily titled Bidenomics Will Bankrupt Us

The Dems have settled on MMT as official policy though they may not explicitly admit it is MMT.
You have to give it to the Dems, they are combining the policies of not only the Third Reich but also the Weimar Republic simultaneously.

Indeed

Mine was a chevy nova: didnt have much problem then with other cars, it was flooded in the no name storm of 2000, but otherwise.

Back to this crap:

Stupid communication games.

My guess is that the National Guard, and all the fencing, is to prevent law abiding citizens from approaching SCOTUS to file timely lawsuits that are dependent on waiting for Biden to be sworn in.

Wonder how soon I’ll be arrested for my “dont tread on me” flag.

Suppose the gave an inauguration and nobody came?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

It wasn't a dream ala MM, but I did wake up with a real sense of foreboding this morning.
It's not so much the specific policies the Dems will pursue, though those are awful enough. It is the cultural critical mass they have achieved that is so reminiscent of the 30s in Germany.
Weimar was a quite dysfunctional Republic but it was a legitimate republic which makes it much more apt as a historical guide than Czarist Russia, Imperial Shinto Japan or 18th century monarchical France.
And Weimar's moral depravity and embrace of modernism in all its demented weaknesses argues against our own 18th century experience as most useful.

What we're seeing is essentially an alternate history in which Weimar merged victoriously with the communists and the gruesome little Austrian Schicklegruber died in obscurity, a failed mediocrity of a painter or perhaps shanked in prison after the Beer Hall Putsch.

The Dems could easily add 20 million new prog voters through our southern border over the next couple of years. That alone will seal the fate of any peaceful political reversal of their slow motion boiling-frogs-in-a-pot revolution.
With the caveat that history regularly embarrasses those who try to predict it, it's hard to see how we avoid an extension of politics by other means to resolve what is becoming an untenable occupation of a single land mass by two incompatible tribes.
And, as in Nazi Germany it will be the complacency and the cork-in-a-river lassitude of the average middle of the road Americans who shrugged their shoulders when the Dems began openly embracing Marxists and folded like lawn chairs when the Dems took their rights and livelihoods and made the Constitution their doormat who ultimately made possible the Prometheus Unhinged Dem power grab that is precipitating what is coming.

I don't see how we avoid Rev 2.0 but what comes after I have no idea. Perhaps more importantly what China does while Rev 2.0 is underway makes this potentially the most extraordinarily risky period perhaps in our entire history. Unless the CCP succumbs prior to America going to war with itself it is difficult to imagine them not inflicting immense, possibly existential, pain on us, given the opportunity.

matt - deplore me if you must

I have been worried about exactly that for years, Ig. They hold trillions in our debt. Do we have the serial numbers so that we can cancel it? Can they crash our economy? Is it a suicide pact if they do?

Xi is preparing China for war. Massive internal crackdowns. Huge defense buildups and an extremely aggressive foreign policy. He's not doing it for his health.

He now has an extremely weak American president with no backbone or worse, one who thinks he has something to prove. That president backup is a feckless whore (politically speaking, of course) and his administration is riddled with fools and knaves.

Europe is a non-entity dependent on Chinese largesse while their throats are slashed economically. Russia is a tragic joke ripe for the taking. Siberia has always been coveted by China.

Trump was on the right track. Xi understands only strength.

The only real answer is to embargo the bastards but who will be willing to stand the short term pain? Imagine an American Renaissance. Ain't gonna happen with the assholes in charge. Wouldn't be surprised at all if they become China's Quislings.

Joe Biden nominates Gretchen Whitmer as Vice Reich Chancellor...err, sorry...Vice Chair of the DNC.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

So the power is out here for about 45 minutes so far with no apparent reason. If there are any Q people in the area, they are probably orgasmic.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Don't know the answer, matt, but without doubt, something wicked this way comes.

Tom R

This tweet is from the same person who published the video of the CNN reporter embedded with the ANTIFA/BLM terrorist. This person is reporting that the Biden transition team is requesting that all ammunition and magazines of the NG troops be taken away because they fear a Trump supporter will try to kill Biden.

Yes finally

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--This person is reporting that the Biden transition team is requesting that all ammunition and magazines of the NG troops be taken away because they fear a Trump supporter will try to kill Biden.--

That is a slight data point in the question of who the military might support should push come to shove.

Nothing Changes on New Year’s Day:

According to the government...

If I get vaccinated: 💉💉💉

1.- Can I stop wearing the mask?
Government Response - No

2.- Can they reopen restaurants, pubs, bars etc and everyone work normally?
Government Response - No

3.- Will I be resistant to covid?
Government Response - Maybe, but we don't know exactly, it probably won't stop you getting it

4.- At least I won't be contagious to others anymore?
Government Response - No you can still pass it on, possibly, nobody knows.

5.- If we vaccinate all children, will school resume normally?
Government Response - No

6.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?
Government Response - No

7.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop disinfecting my hands?
Government Response - No

8.- If I vaccinate myself and my grandfather, can we hug each other?
Government Response - No

9.- Will cinemas, theatres and stadiums be reopened thanks to vaccines?
Government Response - No

10.- Will the vaccinated be able to gather?
Government Response - No

11.- What is the real benefit of vaccination?
Government Response - The virus won't kill you.

12.- Are you sure it won't kill me?
Government Response - No

13.- If statistically the virus won't kill me anyway ... Why would I get vaccinated?"
Government Response - To protect others.

14.- So if I get vaccinated, the others are 100% sure I'm not infecting them?
Government Response - No

So to summarise, the Covid19 vaccine...

Does not give immunity.
Does not eliminate the virus.
Does not prevent death.
Does not guarantee you won’t get it.
Does not prevent you from getting it.
Does not stop you passing it on
Does not eliminate the need for travel bans.
Does not eliminate the need for business closures.
Does not eliminate the need for lockdowns.
Does not eliminate the need for masking.

So...what the hell is it actually doing?

Do we really want President Harris that soon?

RSBN went around last night showing what things look like in DC and interviewed people as well as showing the fencing, tents, National Guard, etc. Half an hour.

Biden may have dementia but he knows how evil and corrupt the people are who got him elected. I would not be surprised that the evil Deep State has a plan ready to go to get rid of Biden and make it look like a Trump supporter did it.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

“So...what the hell is it actually doing?”

People worried about the immediate negative effects of the vaccine are missing the real danger, IMHO.

I think the near-term impact will be just exactly what the globalist Deep State / Technocrats want. It will appear safe, and the “danger” of COVID will pass .... since it was a manufactured crisis to begin with. The vaccine and the subsequent mandatory “proof” that you’ve taken it in order to travel, work, conduct trade, etc., is their objective.

But what adverse and dangerous “payload” can they deliver through the “Trojan HORSE” of the mRNA technology LATER?

THAT is the question we should be asking.

Regarding that crowd of people heading up from Nicaragua:

Notice how they mostly have on the masks? Oh, thank goodness for their concern for spreading Corona.

Coincidentally, the masks also make it easier for Iranians and Chinese to enter without people becoming alarmed, as all you really see is black hair and perhaps some dark eyes. It also makes it impossible for Border Patrol to identify those repeat offenders, wanted criminals from MS13, etc.

Crazy talk, I suppose.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

Tom R,

Exactly. I think we all know Biden will be a short-timer.

henry

The vaccine pass pushed by big tech sure looks like a national id in sheep’s clothing .


Plus... new thread. Wherein TM realizes what he voted for.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

-- I think we all know Biden will be a short-timer.--

Possibly but I have previously expressed my doubts in this area.
I think he is less demented and more tenacious than he is generally given credit for.
I think he is a tough, crooked, corrupt, quite maggoty survivor and if someone wants to knock him off they better not miss. He is without a doubt a moron, but he is sly and cunning and has sharp elbows. I'm not sure Harris oughtn't to watch her back more than him, because she seems to be few of the things Biden is, besides corrupt and nasty.

Steph--

Don't know about your power outage, but Red and I were out running errands and we discovered there is now a HUGE homeless camp on buford hwy at sidney marcus and apparently they set a chemical fire of some sort from the smelly black smoke. Multiple fire engines responding as we cut through and I then went back another way.

Eerily large camp.

Momto2

I imagine now that our useless governor and other elected officials have been exposed as dems in sheep's clothing - more and more disorder and lawlessness will erupt undeterred.

I have jury duty this week. When I got the notice I called to cancel and they told me I had to do it online. Of course, like every7thing I forgot. So I went on this morning and they said it had to be done 5 days in advance. Then I looked at the schedule and they said it was cancelled on Monday. I’m not going, so I’ll probably be arrested for that too. I’ve always wanted to serve on a jury, but lawyers never get chosen, and since I can’t remember 1/2 hour ago,it would be a disservice. I guess I’ll have to go to jail for that too.

Terrorists aren't allowed to sit on juries, are they? Just tell them you voted for Trump and therefore you've been designated a domestic terrorist.

Jim Eagle

When I lived in San Fran I got called to jury duty. I was picked on the third day of doing crossword puzzles and my first question was about asbestos insulation since this was a damages suit. So, I answered that i had some experience with in my powerplant days and before you could say objection the judge dismissed me.

First and only jury experience.
