In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss how the Cantillon Effect has doubled the wealth of the landed gentry in the United Kingdom since the financial crisis, while the debt serfs have suffered austerity and worse. They debate the merits of free money for one group of non-productive members of the economy (landed gentry) who already have more money than they can spend in a lifetime versus another group of non-productive members (those unable to work) who, by necessity, spend every penny they receive. In the second half, Max talks to financial activist, Joel Benjamin, about the ballooning costs of HS2, yet another Private Finance Initiative (PFI) turned boondoggle. They discuss what Prime Minister Boris Johnson might do with these PFI deals and what the future is for austerity policies and Brexit.
Last weekend, the president got bored and decided to see if he could make Democrats defend one of the most dangerous, mismanaged places in the country. And of course, he could. It wasn’t hard. He just sent a flurry of tweets criticizing the city of Baltimore and Rep. Elijah Cummings. President Donald Trump called Baltimore a “disgusting, rat and rodent invested” hellhole, a “corrupt mess” that “no human being” would want to live in. A lot of people who’ve never been to Baltimore claimed to be deeply offended by those remarks. One person who seemed to agree with them was former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh. Just last year, she said things were so bad you could “smell the rotting rats.”
McGovern would scarcely recognize the Democrats today as it scarcely recognizes itself as the same political party prior to the 2016 election. Since election of the Orange One, the Dems have morphed into an identity politics regime with no rhetorical deviation allowance and a stern authoritarian edge as personified by the Antifa mob who appear confused by their own propaganda making it is easy to lose sight of which side the fascists are on.
If there seemed to be little difference between the Democratic candidates at the debate in June, that is because there is little difference between them. As one MSNBC sycophant put it, “this is not an issues campaign. This is who is the bully who can beat the bully.”
It is true that the DNC’s manufactured extravaganza, with its heavy hand in favor of those most simpatico to the party line, offered a series of semi-trivial ‘questions’ as if they represented the most urgent, the most pressing problems the country needs to address.
The two-night burlesque was awkward to watch as the party of quibbling dinosaurs unraveled before our eyes, approaching near total collapse just as the American Empire itself teeters between irrelevance and calamity. The upcoming 2020 election is enough to imbue any Pollyanna with a dread of the future.
Governor Gavin Newsom’s June 22 Facebook and Twitter address to the people of California should have been a big story in the conservative media-sphere. It wasn’t, because the right dismisses California as too far gone. And yes, we are, but that doesn’t mean what’s happening here isn’t instructive, not with fleeing Californians resettling in red states and swing states, making them bluer. Not with anti-American immigrants settling in the heartland and taking over entire congressional districts. So, sure, mock us in Cali. But don’t ignore what’s happening here, because there are plenty of people who want the same thing to happen to you.
Pay attention to California as a cautionary tale.
“Stalin” Newsom’s social media address was the speech of an occupier to a conquered people. The gist of his lecture was essentially, “Everything this state was was bad. You Californians who were here in the 1990s were monsters. But we’ve vanquished you; you’re desolated, done. Your opinions no longer matter, your accomplishments are being dismantled, and better people are replacing you.”
[Forty-eight] years ago . . . America held it’s very first Earth Day, an event credited with the birth of the modern environmental movement. The annual observance was intended by the day’s founder, Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, as a time to contemplate our natural world and to encourage efforts to conserve and protect it. Compared to today’s environmental establishment groups, however, Nelson had a more mature understanding of what environmental sustainability really is.
Central to the theme of Earth Day, the late senator once wrote, was “the understanding that U.S. population growth was a joint partner in the degradation of our nation’s environmental resources.”Like many early environmental advocates, Nelson appreciated that population growth and environmental stability were intrinsically intertwined. With America’s immigration intake representing 80 percent of its population growth-rate, groups like the Sierra Club had actually once been the biggest advocates for tighter immigration controls. But forty-six years on, those groups are now silent.
[Twelve] years ago when the U.S. population hit 300 million (it was only 200 million on the first Earth Day), the Center for Environment and Population warned, “The nation’s relatively high rate of population growth, natural resource consumption and pollution combine to create the largest environmental impact, felt both within the nation and around the world.” On our consumption-levels and its global effects, today’s environmental groups are always quick to remind that despite having only 5 percent of the world’s population, the U.S. uses 20 percent of its energy, 30 percent of its paper and aluminum, 40 percent of its cars, etc. If the Third World were to adopt a middle-class American lifestyle, they lecture, we’d need many more planets.
The event happened last week in San Francisco, CA to push for a privately-enforced Orwellian Nightmare.
The Koch Brothers and George Soros sponsored the “Private Sector Leadership Summit” last week in San Francisco, CA where the billionaire globalist oligarchs urged tech corporations to increase their Big Brother censorship practices.
The event took place on July 17 at the Airbnb headquarters. The summit is an offshoot of the “Communities Overcoming Extremism: The After-Charlottesville Project.” Top sponsors included the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the Soros Fund Charitable Foundation, the Charles Koch Institute (CKI), Comcast NBC Universal, the National Immigration Forum, and neocon Bill Kristol’s organization, Defending Democracy Together.
Speakers at the event included CKI Director of Free Expression Sarah Ruger, Cato Institute Vice President John Samples, ADL Extremism Center Director Oren Segal, ADL Senior Vice President of Programs George Selim, and Americans for Prosperity Vice President for Legal and Judicial Strategy Casey Mattox. The event made official the peculiar union of the Koch foundation with the political Left, as they scramble to protect the globalist status quo.
When Mueller, 74, was led into the lion’s den of the congressional coliseum on Wednesday to defend his 22-month, multi-million-dollar investigation from the slings and arrows of partisan power-brokers, the temptation to feel some pity for the man was surprisingly strong.
The former special counsel appeared frail, disheveled and, as many others have acknowledged, well past his prime. His demeanor resembled that of a powerful official who had just been yanked from bed at gunpoint to appear before a midnight military tribunal. The flimsy shield he hid behind when confronted with any serious question regarding his 448-page report was deference to “the ongoing investigation.”
Within hours of Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt began summoning the heads of American industry to Washington. Roosevelt knew the country would need an unprecedented buildup of planes, ships and other war materiel.
Without hesitation, American companies responded. Ford, Packard, Chrysler, 3M, Hormel, General Mills, Pillsbury, Cargill, Boeing and many other major U.S. companies gave their all to the war effort. At Roosevelt’s request, the president of General Motors even left his company to oversee the war production effort as a lieutenant general in the U.S. Army. Roosevelt’s initial request for 50,000 new airplanes per year was openly mocked by the Germans as outlandishly high and impossible to achieve. But the mighty U.S. industrial base roared to life and pulled it off. By war’s end, the United States was producing 100,000 warplanes a year. U.S. industry literally transformed itself to save our country. It’s fair to wonder if our current CEOs would do the same.
Would American companies in a new globalized economy drop everything for their country? Do American companies even consider themselves American anymore? (RELATED: Peter Thiel Blasts ‘Treasonous’ Google For Choosing China Over U.S. Military)
The Daily Caller News Foundation asked 19 of the biggest names in corporate America if they saw themselves as “American” companies. It shouldn’t be a very hard question to answer. But 10 of the 19 — including Amazon, Apple, Chevron and General Electric — refused to answer altogether. The others mostly gave weasel answers. Only General Motors and the bank JPMorgan Chase were willing to clearly identify as American institutions. And even with them, the actual record is cause for concern.
Modern progressives accuse America of being racist, imperialist, and xenophobic in the past. To the extent that they mean racially conscious, expansionist, and insular, they’re right too. Conservatives who deny this look foolish, as when they claim Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican in spirit. Many non-whites will always resent early American history and traditional American symbols such as the Betsy Ross flag and the national anthem.
The solution is not to condemn the Founders, but to destroy contemporary racial dogmas. Unless we dispose of these modern “values,” we must constantly justify our national existence to non-whites and immigrants. No self-respecting people does this.
Whatever President Trump’s intellectual shortcomings, he was fundamentally right that these non-white congresswomen, especially Ilhan Omar, hate our country. If you were in a relationship with someone who said she loved you but hated your appearance, beliefs, and character, you’d leave. Rep. Omar says she and her colleagues speak from “extreme love for every single person in this country.” Really? Does that include President Trump? His supporters? Those who respect the “genocidal” Founders? White nationalists?
Consider Congolese immigrant Therese Patricia Okoumou, who scaled the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July to protest American immigration laws. She showed up in court with a shirt saying, “No human is illegal on stolen land.” This isn’t “love;” it’s naked hostility. It’s an open declaration that our country is illegitimate. If whites showed up in other countries demanding they change their customs, heroes, and traditions, the natives wouldn’t stand for it.
Ilhan Omar and her ilk are foreigners whatever their passports say. President Trump recognizes this in some vague way; so do many of his supporters. Yet he can’t really define the problem. He enthusiastically accuses Congresswoman Omar of being anti-Semitic, but lacks the courage to call her anti-white or say that she is not really American.
She and others don’t hate only our government or our economic system. They hate the founding population—white people. And they will replace us if they can. Our political leaders must stop the invasion. If they don’t, whites must replace them.
Gooden accused Speaker Pelosi of sedition.
Rep. Gooden: Suggesting that people break the law in this country is sedition. And I think we are going down a very difficult path that we, and I say we to represent Nancy and the gang, that we cannot turn back on.
Gooden then accused Rep. Escobar of “allegedly” instructing her staff to cross the border into Mexico and encouraging illegals to break the law.
