22 October 2017. FDR On Why the Establishment Dems Are Going to Continue to Fail

The Repugs hate his legacy… that’s reason enough to bring it back. This time, we need to put the banksters down and do it permanently. However, shall we?

The Democratic Party has failed when it has fallen to the control of those who think in terms of dollars instead of human values. Until the party shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march to victory.

Franklin D Roosevelt

32nd President of the USA, 1933-45

The Clintons worship the Almighty Dollar. The Dems won’t win until they chase them and their scumbag pals out of the Party. That’s not a prediction… that’s a fact. As long as the Clintons and their Limousine Liberal buddies run the Party, the Dems will be out in the desert. Will the Dems wake up and toss the rascals out? Will the Dems return to a New “New Deal” and kick out the banksters? Time will tell us… however, I’m not holding my breath.

22 October 2017. The “Liberal” LOVES You…

________________________

“Liberals” “love” humanity in the abstract. That’s why so many of them do what they do. “Conservatives” love profit so much that they don’t care whom it hurts to get it… gee, it looks like both sides of the neoliberal coin are equally evil! Neither side cares about individuals. One cares only about abstract “humanity”… the other only cares about filthy lucre and how to get it. Neither one gives a good goddamn for you or for me. That’s why I voted for Bernie in the primary and for Dr Jill in the general. Anyone who voted for Hillary voted for evil… as did those who voted for Trump. Trump was an open chiseler… the Clintons cloaked their greed and power-lust under fancy frou-frou. As for me, Trump was the more honest man. He’s made no pretence of doing good. The Clintons issued saccharine and smarmy pronouncements as they fucked our country up the ass unmercifully and without let-up.

Conservative tyranny is evil… as is liberal tyranny. Neoliberalism is a rum go, no matter which way you swallow it…

22 October 2017. Are the Establishment Dems TRYING to Fail?

Read this:

It’s very important not to thumb your nose at your base. This was precisely what Hillary Clinton did. She selected Tim Kaine as her running mate, in what even Matt Yglesias acknowledged was an enormous “fuck you” to the party’s left flank. Her operatives spurned the offers of Sanders organisers to help get out the vote in Rust Belt states. We know how this turned out. Instead of granting the tiniest possible concession, the party decided to affirm precisely what Nancy Pelosi indicated… democratic socialists and social democrats don’t belong in the party. It’s not for them. What the party does depends on what billionaire donors want it to do. Progressives needed to receive some kind of gesture. Moreover, they received one… an enormous middle finger.

Voters decisively rejected Hillary Clinton in the election. The only group that stayed loyal to the Dems in large part was blacks. However, Clinton fucked them up the ass with no Vaseline when she rejected Keith Ellison and his bloc. That’s ASKING for blacks to stay home on Election Day. If the Dems think that Trump is so toxic that they need do nothing to topple him, they have another thing coming. Most of the country HATE the Clintons. The Clintons fucked most of the country and laughed at them. The rest of the country DID notice. I think that the Establishment Dems just put a pistol to their temple… all that they have to do now is to pull the trigger.

20 October 2017. The Kerch Bridge is Going Up…

________________________

The above image is of the new Kerch Strait Bridge linking the Crimea to the rest of the Russian Federation. It’s going forward and at full-speed. American sanctions haven’t harmed Russia. They’ve merely sped up the import substitution programme. Russian industry, agriculture, and commercial enterprises stepped up and replaced Western imports. The Americans tried to hobble Russia by having their Ukrainian puppets join the sanctions. All that did was to focus Russian energies. Now, Russia has replacements for everything once built in the Ukraine. The leading light in this was Deputy Chairman of the Government D O Rogozin, the defence industry head. He refused to give in. He gave industry goals and industry met them. In short, the American sanctions didn’t hurt Russia. They helped it!

Russia, China, and Iran form a homogenous contiguous economic bloc linked by landlines… that is, the US Navy can’t interdict them. That’s why the Americans hate the Chinese Silk Road initiative. This overland route would be invulnerable to US Navy pressure. The USN is the only truly strong part of the American forces (like Britain before it, the USA is a sea power, relatively weak in its land/air forces). As naval forces are inherently expensive to build, maintain, and operate, the USA can’t match Russia, China, or even Iran in ground and air forces. The USA simply doesn’t have the money. It must find the funds for a world-beating navy, which means that its army and air force must take what’s left. The USN is primarily responsible for the defence of the American heartland (as the Royal Navy was for Britain’s defence). The USA’s army and air force don’t protect the homeland… that’s always been a naval responsibility. Unlike Russia, China, and Iran, which must maintain large ground forces for homeland defence, the USA (with weak neighbours to the north and south, and oceans to the east and west, as Bismarck noted) must maintain a large naval force to defend itself and to control the sea lanes tying together the Anglosphere and its allies.

Besides that, Russia isn’t very vulnerable from the World Ocean. Most of the Russian coastline faces the Arctic (where naval operations would be extraordinarily difficult)… most of the rest lies in the confined waters of the Baltic and Black Seas. The only place where Russia faces the World Ocean is in the Pacific. Just as Russia poses no real threat to the USA, the USA doesn’t have a strategic advantage over Russia either. It can blockade the Russian Navy in home waters, but the Russian fleet has a different purpose than the USN. The USN is a bluewater high-seas control force. The Russian fleet has the tasks of coastal defence, protection of the two “fortress areas” for SLBM forces, and cooperation with the army. They’re two very different forces.

The Americans are simply not hurting their opponent. However, they ARE goading the bear. All that does is to make him vigilant…
