Systematized, on-going ruination.

According to Obama our immigration system is broken because it doesn’t allow illegal aliens who illegally crossed the border to take American jobs. That’s not a broken system, that’s what the system is supposed to do.

When illegal aliens aren’t allowed to legally take American jobs, that’s how you know the immigration system is working. In the language of progressivism, helping means ruining and fixing means breaking. A system that fulfills any useful purpose must be reformed out of all usefulness.[1]

To conceal their true destructive purpose, progressives must lie. Today, every single area of public life is awash in lies of the worst kind. The lie about the numbers of unwelcome foreigners in our country is one.

Another is the lie about St. Trayvon in Sanford and Michael Brown in Ferguson. Both were thugs and thieves and the insolent Brown took to walking in the middle of the street and clearly – clearly – attacking the police officer who witnessed his "fuck you" behavior and confronted him. The black segment, for I can find no evidence warranting the descriptor "community," including our first anti-American occupant of the White House, have united behind the manufactured fantasy that Brown was a pleasant soul yearning to attend Rocket Science School. Even, the "conservative" Newsmax cable channel just a moment ago showed a picture of Brown wearing a . . . SHMG . . . school graduation cap. The scholar! Another image showed him wearing earphones. An innocent "youth" enjoyin' him some tunes safe at home!

The picture of him stealing from the store clerk was not shown. The lie of omission.

The authorities grovel before liars and thugs in Ferguson -- not a few of them New Black Panther scum and other outside communist agitators -- as though they were upstanding citizens with legitimate grievances. Progressive "truth." And the U.S. Dept. of Justice investigates the officer and his department when he and it enforced the law as they were sworn to do. Something needin' fixin', yo.

Effective law enforcement = broken system. Persecution and personal ruination for the officer = solution of choice.

Progressives are at war with common sense, human nature, basic morality, simple decency, the rule of law, tradition, custom, economics, religion, truth, and even cultural survival. The summum bonum of progressives is the immiseration of the productive middle class; the enslavement of the middle class, the poor and the lumpenproletariat; and the installation of a new Constitution-free alliance of voting parasites, intellectuals, the ultra wealthy, Muslims, other foreigners, and the courts.

The lie of 11 million illegals.

Collapsing the System and America’s First World identity has been the objective of Obama’s government all along.

Immigration patriots need to know that it’s not about Amnesty for five million people—it’s about enabling the fifty million that will reduce the U.S.A. to a geographic expression and the historic American nation to a despised minority.[1]

Fred Elbel of the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform, cited in source, "now believes the total to be closer to '50 million.'”

On the national disease.

When you just have a slight headache, you don’t imagine that it is the first indication of a much worse ailment. But as with my very sick friend, the symptoms have gotten bad enough that we can no longer ignore them. And now we have the terrible diagnosis: our nation has a late-stage political cancer rotting our republic from the inside out.

[Obama's actions] are the symptom, not the disease.

* * * *

. . . [This "belief in executive authority without limits"], like cancer, is an assault on the internal political structures on which our nation’s health rests.

Libertarianism in a nutshell.

Too often, public libertarianism is reduced to a cartoonish state by overcompensating on liberty and leaving unconsidered other important concerns.

Our best thinking.

Right now, JPMorgan Chase has more than 67 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives but it only has 2.5 trillion dollars in assets.

Right now, Citibank has nearly 60 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives but it only has 1.9 trillion dollars in assets.

Right now, Goldman Sachs has more than 54 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives but it has less than a trillion dollars in assets.

Right now, Bank of America has more than 54 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives but it only has 2.2 trillion dollars in assets.

Right now, Morgan Stanley has more than 44 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives but it has less than a trillion dollars in assets.

Most people have absolutely no idea how incredibly vulnerable our financial system really is.

Alcoholics at AA meetings will occasionally recount how they were low-bottom drunks and lost job, family, and self respect. Then they'll add, "And my best thinking got me there."

Some very smart people have gotten us to this point, which I've hitherto variously described as one characterized by utter delusional thinking or lies stretching out to the horizon on all points of the compass.

Earnestly discussing the abrogation of the Constitution, the metastatic growth of the federal government, or the perils of multiculturalism seems not to ignite the awakening of a great many citizens. A collapse of the major banks following the collapse of the derivative scam will be more instructive.

Goodbye to the Age of Acquarius.

This essentially means that the state’s economic apparatus is now all about stimulus, all of the time. In fact, the state’s central banking branch has gotten so deep into ritualized Keynesian governance that it’s essentially attempting to micro-manage vast accumulations of GDP—-about $17 trillion each in the US and Europe—-on a monthly basis.That’s entirely what the meeting statements and post-meeting press conferences are all about.

Yet this is absurd. The information flow in a $17 trillion economy is far too vast to be digested and assessed by the 12 mortal members of the FOMC, and their policy control instrument—-the bludgeon of interest rate manipulations—- could not possibly shape its short-run course in any event. That’s especially true since the macro-economy is not a closed system, but one open to every manner of complicating and countervailing influence from trade, capital flows and financial impulses in a $80 trillion global economy.

Still, the Keynesian policy apparatchiks have not even an inkling that they are attempting the impossible or that their patter about objectives, forecasts and policy actions have gotten downright moronic.[1]

As a certified shade tree mechanic I not infrequently venture into projects on my beloved 25-year-old Honda, which is a machine of a certain complexity. With the help of decent manuals and a little beer it's sometimes possible to bird dog problems in a satisfying way, especially when I realize that my efforts have left a decent amount of my money where it belongs – in my pocket. Admittedly, I would have more confidence had I attended Bailey Tech at some point in my meandering career but it is still possible to figure out problems as a rank amateur.

The point of saying this is that even with more knowledge, I would have my work cut out for me, especially where electronic components are possibly at fault or there might be an accursed short to chase down. Mr. Stockman puts his finger on the problem with "managing" a national economy when the complexity of the systems involved is several orders of magnitude worse. Cliff Notes version: It can't be done. Even a simple electrical problem in a single automobile with relatively ancient fuel injection technology is daunting and time consuming, whoever is chasing it down.

Thus, it's all the more reason to watch with some dismay as Janet Yellin speaks with glibness and confidence of how this economic lever will be pulled and such and such level of employment will hopefully result with this or that "desirable" target rate of inflation in her sight reticle. (That would be the "desirable" inflation rate envisioned by her predecessors that has caused the dollar to lose 97% of its purchasing power since 1913 in case your were wondering.)

Modern man has been intoxicated for well over a century with the idea that sufficiently smart and educated people can competently manage the affairs of other people. It's a delusion fast proving to be a disaster as statist busybodies find they are running out of options when economies stall under the regulatory and tax loads imposed, massive borrowing is necessary merely to pay the interest on existing debt, and existing debt can't be paid off but merely rolled over. The fiscal flexibility and cushion available to such as FDR and Lydon Johnson are no more. And the noxious seeds that they planted are now the mighty oaks that are about to fall across our path.

An old cartoon had an army sergeant remarking to his buddy while they were out on the town: "Just look at all those people walking around unsupervised." It's an approach that mystified the sergeant and terrifies the statists and their parasites. Liberty was once prized by our elites but now takes a back seat to sophomoric social, political, and economic tinkering by people who have no idea at all of their human limitations. And we all get to go down with them, worst luck.

Not loathsome?

If you're ever tempted to think that the GOP is, in the main, not loathsome, you should read Chuck Baldwin's excellent article below.

It's important to vote against the ultra leftist, sellout, anti-white, progressive Democrat trolls this one last time but, after we get the finger in the eye from the GOP sellouts and cowards after this election, which we will, it will be time to go full third party.

We different.

All these foreign and economic woes led to political instability [in the Chinese Ming Dynasty], which led a centralized imperial bureaucracy whose rigidness and endless passing of laws was [sic] totally incapable of addressing the nation’s problems.
