The Greater Depression

AS Steve noted earlier today, the St Louis Fed estimates US unemployment could reach 32 percent as a result of the coranavirus shut-down. The highest rate during the so-called “Great” Depression was 24.9 percent in 1933. Catastrophes of this magnitude can tip nations into war. See how well the world’s ICUs cope with that. Or, let’s not. As I wrote yesterday, the hysteria now crippling the whole world – caused ultimately by the Third Reich’s 21st century counterpart – is partly selfishness garbed as succour. It won’t be the old sent to fight a general war or single-theatre skirmish brought on by the West’s bankruptcy and social annihilation. It will, as always, be the young. When you learn the US Marine Corps is ditching its tanks after 100 years to re-arm for atoll-hopping in the South-China Sea, you realise that behind the scenes tactical plans with frightening implications are already being executed. Not for several decades has it been so important for the West to be politically stable, wealthy, energy-rich, industrially strong and socially integrated.

All of these metrics of national fortitude have been wilfully denuded by a brainsick left in a quest to bring down Donald Trump. Before reaching a finale of sorts in a hoax impeachment, the Democrat Party – led, tactically, by mentally frail sociopath Nancy Pelosi – sought to shatter the public’s confidence in the Supreme Court during the Kavanaugh confirmation process; purchased from the Kremlin a fake sex dossier about which its operatives lied to FISA judges; corrupted the FBI beyond rehabilitation; opposed any serious border controls; and worked to destroy every economic recovery initiative brought to the table by the President. That’s not even counting the destruction wrought by a climate racket whose only purpose is to morally wedge non-leftist political parties in the eyes of media-primed electorates for the next 50 years or more. Jeffrey Lord in the American Spectator has compiled a damning timeline of the Democrats’ depraved priorities from the start of the current pandemic. As events began to unfold that now expose all Americans to grave existential risk – of social breakdown and war, I mean – they worked assiduously to ruin the administration and the United States itself in the eyes of the world. Only Kennedy, Roosevelt, Lincoln and Washington have faced a crisis of such scale before. None has ever faced enemies foreign and traitors domestic – of equal loathsomeness – simultaneously.

    Australia has already become full-retard Marxist-communist. No resistance was offered.

    Comrades.

    May we live in interesting times!

    Its pitty that they will cost my wallet so much though, I was one of the suckers who saved for most of my life, and will now surely see it all erroded by tax/inflation/theft/etc.

    You should try being a mobilisation planner here.

    It won’t be the old sent to fight a general war

    And it’s not the old calling for destruction of the economy.

    Most of them understand what it means and that it will be worse than any virus.

    It’s innumerate Gen X virtue signallers and social media hysterics driving this shit.

    Pelosi is total filth. What a fuckwit place San Francisco is to send that evil old slag to DC.

    The USA, Australia, and most formerly cohesive western democracies have been so determinedly weakened for decades – and made so divided – that rescues of the broad Trump variety or of the more narrow Morrison variety might not succeed. The zombie left (which includes the Greens and much of the media) cannot be defeated by a few good politicians, or a few good journalists.

    And yet here he is, still pimping the Russia bullshit.

    Just as well we’re not descending into “chaos” like “some Countries”, eh SloMo?

    What’s the “other side” look like – Venezuela?

    Your god Trump has extended his shutdown beyond Easter, saying this will save a million American lives. Is he a fool or, as he Fauci says, he showed Trump something he immediately understood?

    Either Trump is an easily manipulatable fool or the measures are right and proper. Please choose.

    Robber Barron, who do you think you are, John Constantine?

    Robber Barron, who do you think you are, John Constantine?

    RB can answer for himself, but I’d just say he’s one of those who finally ‘get it’.
    The only question now is whether in the near future, we’d best address each other as ‘comrades’ or finish our sentences with ‘Sieg Heil!’
    The final outcome will be the same, however.
    So to be ‘safe’, maybe we should just use both.
    Sieg Heil, comrades!

    Trump is as left wing as anyone in the Democrat party. This week alone should’ve proved that beyond the doubt of even the most ignorant conservative.

    But don’t let the fact that your narrative and random talking points have no basis in reality prevent you from continuing to push that narrative.

    After all, the only way to deal with total ignorance is to double down!

    “Trump is as left wing as anyone in the Democrat party. “

    Yeah, it’s pretty plain, innit?
    I mean, they support all his decisions to the hilt, right?

    You need to have only the most superficial knowledge of politics to figure this out.
    Just broad, general policies show this.
    Rights violating government policies like regulating trade and immigration.
    Trillion dollar spending bills
    etc.

    Basically most high school kids can figure this out. Just not conservative “thinkers” and certainly not the general conservative punter.

    It just doesn’t fit with random talking points which passes for “discussing politics” among conservatives.
