The Great Reckoning

For generations, going back to the middle of the last century, people have been warning about systemic problems in American society. Some of the warnings have been tricks to continue the cultural revolution. Some have been part of the financial legerdemain that defines so much of our economy and politics. There have been, however, many sincere warnings about long term structural problems. Out of necessity and expediency they were ignored, but that may be about to change.

The most obvious is the most immediate. Going back to the Clinton years people who understood money were warning about loose money policy. People forget that Clinton winning was a surprise. After all, Bush came into the election with a huge war victory and a solid economy. The Reagan expansion was viewed not only as a miracle of Republican policy, but a rebuke of left-wing economics. Then the economy soured before the elections and Clinton was president.

Much of official Washington blamed the tight money policies of Alan Greenspan for tanking the economy under Bush. Team Clinton made sure this could never happen again, especially with a Democrat in office. Loose money became official policy and only got worse with each administration. By the Obama years, we were in a world of Zero Interest Rate Policy. Now those ZIRP chickens are coming home to roost in the form of a systemic banking failure.

No one should be deceived by what is happening. Last weekend, the Federal Reserve decided that the banks are all broke due to holding assets that have a declining market value, so the Federal Reserve effectively nationalized the banks. The only way they can regain control of money policy is to eliminate the market for long dated bonds by promising to buy them at face value. The Federal Reserve has nationalized the banks by nationalizing the bond market.

This is required to avoid a bank collapse but also allow for the long overdue reorganization of the financial sector. A generation of free money has turned Wall Street into a drug addict. It is entirely organized around getting the narcotic of free money from the government, rather than the normal practice of banking. All of its schemes are designed not to create value in the economy but to generate the need for more free money, a portion of which ends up in executive pay.

This did not happen in isolation. The great auctioning off of the manufacturing base that began in the 1980’s has finally caught up to America. The subtext to the Ukraine war is the fact that America no longer has the ability to make the weapons it requires to wage war on the world. Russia, with a third of the population, can now make more weapons for war than America. Her production of ammunition dwarfs what America can muster, which is why Russia is slowly grinding down the Ukrainians.

Of course, one main reason for the auctioning off of the manufacturing base is it raised quick money to invest in the rigged casino that is Wall Street. This fact was masked to a great degree by cheap consumer goods. In fact, the culture of cheap consumer goods has justified all of the nation wrecking policies. Everything from open borders to wholesale political corruption have been justified by cheap lawn care and cheap products sold in big box stores.

The price tag for decades of cheap goods underwritten by the sale of the manufacturing base is now coming due. The only thing America makes now is sexual deviance and lectures in favor of sexual deviance. It turns out that there is no global market for rainbow colored marital devices and films promoting the culture around them, which means America does not have a real economy. The ongoing economic crisis is about to get much worse as that reality becomes clear.

In fairness, some of the proceeds from auctioning off of the manufacturing base went into the technology sector. In the fullness of time, the robot historians may remember America for having singlehandedly created the technological revolution. This has changed the world. The trouble is, the technological revolution ended decades ago, but Silicon Valley continues to consume trillions in money. With the collapse of SVB, that great money drain is now ending.

The war with Russia and the looming war with China has also brought other chickens home to roost. For a long time people have been warning about the military industrial complex and its addiction to expensive, high tech weapons. Those whiz-bang systems look great, but they are not what wins wars. What wins a war are the tools the average soldier uses to kill the enemy. We no longer bother making them and instead focus on rocket ships and space lasers.

What the war in Ukraine has revealed is that NATO would have to use nuclear weapons in a war against Russia, because NATO lacks the men and machines to fight a ground war against the Russians. Most NATO countries would run out of ammunition in a few weeks and have to surrender. Against China, the American military would deliver some serious early blows, but then run out of supplies. Chinese manufacturing capacity is now greater than America and Europe combined.

Overlaying all of this is the crisis of competence. The SVB fiasco is a great example of a problem that permeates American society. Instead of rewarding skill and accomplishment, our system is rigged to reward nonwhites at the explicit expense of whites, especially white males. The only market that is booming in America is the racial revenge market and the result is colorful people in positions of authority who lack the basic skills to do the jobs they have been given.

Thirty years ago, people warned about this. What started as tolerance in the 1980’s, became sensitivity in the 1990’s, then diversity in the new century. It has now turned into a full blown cult of anti-whiteness. While towns in Ohio suffer from an ecological disaster, the people in charge fret of racist sidewalks. Corporate America is more concerned with its ESG and DEI scores than its financial stability. We have combined demographic reality with anti-white fanaticism into a ruling ethic.

No society can run this way. Good luck fighting China with a rainbow coalition of drag diverse drag queens trying to operate space guns. Good luck weathering a reorganization of the financial system when the banks are run by people who were just recently coaxed from caves by European explorers. Imagine surviving an end of empire crisis with the productive portion of society seething with rage at the fanatics who brought about this disaster.

One could go on a long time listing the things that should never have been allowed to happen that are now turning up in the nation’s crisis list. All of these are the result of bad polices hatched in the late 20th century and used to loot the country by the new generations of rulers ushered in by the Clintons. The bill for the great bust-out is now coming due and there is no avoiding it. Like drunks at closing time, we await the bill for generations of reckless behavior.

I’ll play the villain here, but I see a lot of people high on hopium. The collapse is not here. There will not be a run on the banks or any widespread collapse right now. They’ve taken measures that will calm the markets just enough for now. Furthermore, I doubt there’s going to be any more real moves in fed interest rates. If they move up, they’re going to trigger failures of more banks. If they move back down, inflation runs out of control. They’re going to freeze here like a deer in headlights and accept the ensuing “7-9%” CPI.… Read more »

We often speak about the “Day of Reckoning” in the future tense, but the reality is that the collapse is happening in slow motion before our very eyes on a daily basis.

Tired Citizen: With all due respect, how much is a particular ‘friendship’ worth to you? Is it truly a friendship if you hold such dramatically different visions of reality? And of course you’re not going to change your parents’ minds at their age – most people get incredibly stubborn after age 50 or so and actively resist change. If you love them, then visit with them and determinedly keep the conversation to inconsequential things. Trying to discuss dissident political positions just confuses them and distresses you. Nod your head, ask about their health, and maintain detachment.

If the system was worth saving, if there was hope of working within it, then two possible legitimate victories would be:

* overturning the doctrine of disparate impact (unequal results among races proves discrimination) by race realist arguments

First Boomers then Gen-X and now Millennials are not having enough children. This falls squarely on feminism. What is most infuriating about it is women traded a family for a cubicle.

Not sure about the downvotes here. There’s a reason for the saying, “why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”

In Eden, man failed to stop woman from introducing sin into the world, and every man since then has been born into the same dynamic. Some do better than others in taming that impulse to sin, but it’s generally easier done when living in the context of a moral society. We don’t have that now, with predictable results on the part of men.

Who is Herbert Marcuse?

“It was absolutely understood by both [immigration] restrictionists and antirestrictionists in Congress that Jewish organizations spearheaded opposition against the 1924 law’s national origins, despite little public support.

In the 90s, there were open debates about free trade vs. protectionism, NAFTA and GATT, etc, which spurred Ross Perot to run for president. Lately I’ve heard chatter here and there about Perot being controlled opposition to enable Clinton to win, but I disagree. I think he was truly alarmed at the destruction of the manufacturing base. Back then I listened to Pat Choate’s (Perot’s second running mate) radio show enough to realize Perot’s campaign wasn’t some cryptic psyop. He was genuinely sickened about what was happening. Choate, a fellow Texan, knew him well. Even though the protectionist side had… Read more »

I don’t really buy this. Everything began rolling downhill rapidly ca. 1965 several years before the women’s lib movement gained any traction. What we began experiencing at that time was a broadbased anti-Western movement exemplified by Satanic inversion, part of which was dethroning men and replacing them with women. But that was only part of a much larger and more complicated picture.

“China needs the US market for its cheap junk”

First, China is aware of this relationship and has been pushing to make itself a “consumer driven” society rather than an export driven society. It is not far from that tipping point, thanks to our greedy capitalists and China’s economic policies.

Second, China makes quite a bit of solid, high tech products—certainly more than we make in the USA currently. What we may see in Walmart is not representative of the majority of China exports.

The problem is not the derivatives. Positions will be paired off and retired over time, unless counterparty failures overtake them.

The problem is the govt guaranteeing face value (no mark-to-market) of all govt bonds in the bank portfolios. It enables the banks to absorb all of the massive future governmental fiscal deficits, through govt bond issuance, and give them a guaranteed home. Thanks to the face value backing, the banks’ books will always look clean, no matter what is going on in the real world.

Bourbon, DNA get transcribed to mRNA, mRNA is translated to protein normally. They are simply synthesizing mRNA(modified so it doesn’t get degraded so fast) and putting in lipid drops so it can get into cells. This what they inject. Once in the cell it is translated to the protein encoded, in this case spike protein (the cells machinery does the work). I haven’t looked into this deeply but i think they use spike because it has features that make it immunoreactivity. This allows the immune surveillance system to detect and raise anti-bodies against this viral protein. Normal vaccines just isolate… Read more »

In other words, the huge money making applications of technology, haven’t been of much benefit, and in fact, may have turned out to be a detriment when looked at on the whole – this includes importing an alien elite that has formed the new anti-white oligarchy.

But it’s worth exploring the technology issue more. I don’t think the technology revolution is over.

Even if the 40% private sector grows its productivity at 3%, the remaining 60% is at zero or worse. So we end up with 1% productivity growth overall (not… Read more »

“I haven’t seen the efficiencies the technological revolution promised.”

Partly because tech was about control, rather than efficiency. Also, on a side note, even where there has been increased efficiency it’s been at the expense of core human competency. It’s the world of Idiocracy. There was a book published around thirty years ago but still well worth reading — Clifford Stoll’s “Silicon Snake Oil.”

I think of the British Expeditionary Force at the start of WWI. Professional and very competent, the Germans thought they were facing machine guns when they first faced them, but they were only experiencing the shocking rate of fire the BEF could generate with their bolt-action rifles. The BEF suffered something like 60% casualty rate during those first couple months and the model shifted over to massive armies of conscripts.

Lately, the Army sent a tweet for recruitment featuring a photo of White men leading a unit. Imagine how desperate they must be to do that.
