The Real Reason We Are in This Mess - American Capital, Its Greed and Lack of Patriotism

In 2020, a socialist is a Republican in a pandemic. A nationalist is a leftist who has suddenly discovered the wisdom of borders and citizenship. Both wings of the money-power vulture and its managerial class chicks have at least temporarily rediscovered the value of the nation, and the power of national collectivism viz-a-viz individualism and cosmopolitanism.

When the White House announced a relief plan to temporarily send every American citizen a subsidy, expand health care and mandates for paid sick leave, I expected a deluge of Jewish media concern trolls: “what about all our illegal immigrants? Why must big business continue to suffer? How are we going to pay for this non-essential stimulus white people might benefit from? Let’s attach an emergency amnesty or else this is racist and can’t be passed!” — distractions that would doom such a bill in Congress. This sentiment shockingly never materialized. If you’re an illegal immigrant, go home and get your government to take care of you.

Ordinary Americans, especially those of European descent who are not allowed community advocates or state protections, have been indefinitely suffering from a myriad of problems on par with coronavirus in our country. The solutions the hedge fund managers, think-tanks, lobbyists and journalists usually present is to exacerbate these problems for their own profit, financial or cultural.

What has changed this time around is that the coronavirus has brought blood to the doors of rich cosmopolitans, who love to travel and go to Shabbat dinners. They’re going to have trouble advocating for their disastrous policies now that we are sharing the consequences together.

The Impossible Becomes Possible

The fact that so few people control so many trillions of dollars on the market in liberal “democracies” around the world means that no amount of federal reserve rate cuts or handouts to banks can alone save the economy. In Canada, the stock market collapse is historic. In Britain, the Pound is in a free fall as international speculators start betting on the US dollar (sorry gold-bugs). The trend in capitalist nations around the world is to lower bank lending rates, which so far has led to short term 1-day rallies that are followed by another dive. What are interest rates going to do after you’ve hit 0%?

The public’s dash for toilet paper, food, water and dollars is partially a product of elite fright — the only thing that really trickles down to workers from the stock market. It’s not just about getting sick, the oligarchs are afraid there will be a slave revolt if a Great Depression tier contraction intersects with many 9/11’s worth of human carnage. Peter Turchin previously predicted that a pandemic or economic meltdown would lead to the collapse of the already fragile neo-liberal order during the 2020s and many laughed.

They’re not laughing now. Suddenly, what Jews like Steven Pinker have held is an “impossible” task — closing borders and stopping immigration — has been made reality overnight in Europe, Canada, and to some degree America.

Now, the GOP has dropped its “socialism vs America” crap to outflank the corporate Democrats from the left and propose drastic state action to prevent electoral slaughter next November. The open borders anti-white left has been shoved out of the way and eliminated from the conversation entirely. Liberal ideologues, whether economic (GOP) or cultural (the “woke” left), have finally shut the hell up so that we can have a serious conversation about our nation, though I suspect they will reboot the white noise machine the second they think the coast is clear.

In Europe, the European Union is doing the bare minimum to help Northern Italy as it is ravaged, raising the question as to what the point of regional integration even is. After initially pledging to sit back and watch Italy financially explode, leaving them with all the downsides of a Euro and none of the ups, it seems Christine Lagarde has now changed her mind as her owners started to taste the backwash. But nations are still turtling up on a very primal level. The Schengen zone has been temporarily suspended and it is now almost impossible for non-Europeans to enter the continent. Germany has declared that it will not be sharing crucial medical supplies. The supposed solidarity the EU claims to represent with its member states just isn’t there, much less for aliens who should not be allowed to immigrate to Europe by the millions to begin with.

The EU’s only point seems to be as a corral for sovereign countries for high finance’s benefit, as well as a cash cow to produce record profits for French and German corporations, who swamp smaller nations with their products and loan them cheap credit to buy them in order to hollow out the manufacturing of their neighbors and make them permanent debt-slaves.

As citizens of the West, we now ask: Why do we only stop immigration when there’s a pandemic? Why is the largely white middle and working class only entitled to decent health care when it’s coronavirus and not any of the countless other crippling diseases that people die from, often getting into massive debt in the process? Why does Mike Pence only express solidarity with the tribulations of average Americans now? Why are so many people living paycheck to paycheck, indebted up to their eyes or working as “independent contractors” for “gigs” that provide absolutely no benefits, no stability or even basic worker’s rights?

It is now, during a meltdown finally impacting those at the very top, that the public sees clearly that what they constantly vote for and never get is a product of corruption rather than inability.

The Price of Doing the Wrong Thing

Corporations, especially those in charge of airline travel and plane construction, are begging for bailouts after blowing trillions of their profits and Trump tax-cut on parasitic stock buybacks that have been wiped out in the blink of an eye.

A modern country cannot survive a total collapse of its flight industry. They have no cash on hand and these scum are trying to extort the taxpayer into massive subsidies, which they will predictably try to use to continue malpractice like astonishing compensation for failed CEOs and speculative counter-productive trickery that led to them being in these dire straits to begin with.

Enough of the Reaganist nonsense. Pay their shareholders what their stock is currently worth and nationalize these companies.

In respects to our healthcare system, investment banks are planning for companies to gouge consumers on life-or-death medication, including a potential coronavirus cure. This monstrous plan must be met with an iron fist, including criminal charges if necessary.

On the foreign policy front, the Zionists setting foreign policy in the Trump administration have decided to suddenly increase “maximum pressure” sanctions on the ability of Iran to use banking services, despite being one of the hardest hit by the epidemic. These are sanctions most of the world is expected to abide by, and the country’s request for a $5 billion dollar International Monetary Fund loan could be rejected. Some estimates suggest that millions of Iranians will needlessly die at the hands of genocidal Jewish brutality if this policy holds. The right thing to do is to purge the Israeli agents in our state apparatus and lift the sanctions now.

Whatever happens in the future, this time around a lot of countries around the world are sick of America. Russia has responded to attacks on its economy with a counter-punch on American shale oil, another industry currently desperate for bailouts. The Chinese have the power to leverage their $1.5 trillion in holdings of US debt and dump it, thus crippling our bond market. Not to mention that they currently produce all kinds of vital supplies we will need.

Some will follow Trump and Fox News and get angry at the Chinese for this. They do share some degree of blame, though they made enormous sacrifices and demonstrated amazing national cohesion as Western media attacked their measures to successfully contain the outbreak for now. But it’s important not to lose sight of the real reason we’re in this mess: American capital, which is unprecedented in its greed and lack of patriotism.

The elites should see this as a powerful warning that they cannot get away with what they’ve been doing forever. Graft and inaction during this global crisis is not just morally wrong, it will provoke the angels of vengeance to bring them their just desserts.

If you’re wondering why the biggest bookseller monopoly has decided to ban all copies of Mein Kampf except for the Anti-Defamation League version, it’s because our overlords know we’re going to be furloughed at home watching. World War II is the founding myth of neoliberalism and globalism, and as its discrediting moment grows nearer, some might conclude that there was merit to Hitler’s struggle. A third nationalist position against capital and the left is an existential necessity. The current scramble by our governments proves this, but what if its too little, too late?
