When you think about it, the parallels between the Health bureaucrats’ insistence on the safety of Covid19 “vaccines”, and the bromides being issued by those in charge of the US economy, are striking. Or suspicious, depending on your outlook.
I shudder sometimes when I look back over the Coronavirus saga and remember how one high-ranking member of the State after another stood up in his or her legislature, place of learning or other corridor of power to swear blind that mRNA-based, largely untested experiments in bioweaponry were “safe and effective”.
Having done so, they put in hopelessly loose systems to measure adverse reactions, and often didn’t follow up on such cases – preferring to smear perfectly good management drugs costing 5-7 times less with 30-50 year histories of impeccable safety
The ensuing evidence that they were lying through their omnivorous teeth has been tragic to behold. In just four months of so far monitored 2021, COVID-19 vaccines have killed more people than all available vaccines combined from mid-1997 until the end of 2013 — a period of 15.5 years. The highest annual flu-vaccine death rate in a US “season” was 203; between mid-December 2020 and April 23, 2021, there were 3,544 reported deaths following COVID vaccination. Grossing that up to an annual figure, the reality is stark: the vaccines are, on average, 53 times more deadly than a flu jab.
There is a psychological syndrome – known pretty well among professionals across the globe – called post-cognitive rationale. Over and over for half a century in social, marketing and political research, it has shown that, having made and completed an important purchase or policy decision, humans defend and rationalise it to utterly irrational degrees. Those in charge of Psy-Ops like Contrick19 exploit this, feeding the madness with coordinated ‘placement’ fake news to offer further reassurance to the victim.
My biggest single gripe against the financialised bourse monopolism we labour under today is that it represents another exercise in the suspension of empirical observation. The largest banking firms are engaged in criminal frauds dastardly enough to make the average mafia crime family seem like Sesame Street by comparison. The oldest defence of neoliberal wealth gaps was that only by such things “can wealth trickle down”. Funny how we never hear about that any more. It is, to be clear, a ludicrous insult to the citizen’s intelligence. The Federal Reserve – how prudent, official and all-knowing that title sounds – supports monetary clap-trap and banker frontal-lobe incontinence to the hilt…and largely to the detriment of the vast majority employed in the real ground-level economy.
Yet the painted horses still go up, down and around.
The JPMorgan Chase bank that gambled with the bank deposits of moms and pops across America in 2012 by trading exotic derivatives in London (losing $6.2 billion along the way) is the same bank that admitted to two felony counts in 2014 for its role in facilitating Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi ripoff using the life savings of thousands of wannabe America retirees. It’s been indicted so many times, one suspects that Jamie Dimon – the monster at the top of it throughout the entire panoply of law breaking – sees the whole thing as some kind of cute Board Game in which Go To Jail never actually happens, as such.
Fast forward to 2021, and watch the antics of Fed boss Jerome Powell as he tries to soft-soap his way through a No Man’s Land of financial trickery and fiscal lunacy. His watch has seen a massive monetary response to Covid – $4trn in assets were bought by the Fed – a staggering 18% of gdp, far bigger than that required during the global financial crisis, thus swelling its total balance-sheet to $8.3trillion.
The trend going forward (given the fiscal horror that is Bidenism) isn’t looking great: on July 21st this year, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected government debt levels in the U.S. not seen since World War II. It observed: ‘After all the government’s borrowing needs are accounted for, debt held by the public rises from $21.0 trillion at the end of 2020 to $35.8 trillion at the end of 2031’.
Powell’s reaction to this rarely varies: “At the Federal Reserve, we are strongly committed to achieving the monetary-policy goals that Congress has given us: maximum employment and price stability”. So there you are…or rather, you aren’t, because every inflation model forecast keeps being overtaken by the rampant inflation on the ground. Curiously, this is now referred to in US investment circles as ‘the Powell doctrine’. Maybe I need to recalibrate my doctrinometer in order to live in the New Normal: expand the ‘doctrine’ phonetics there, and you get to ‘doctoring’ – an outcome that strikes me as far closer to reality.
A long-established economic mishmash of financialised globalist neoliberal tosh is approaching what should be its final hours. However, it is now abundantly clear that there is no be no self-absolution in the form of a deathbed confession: the psychoclowns whose inestimable greed got us to here are going unapologetically to Hell. And the general idea is that we’re going with them – in the role of tied serfs.
Little else can credibly explain the sudden odd philanthropy of State employees with a long history of misanthropic sociopathy; as they conflate the threats of, variously, death by virus, climate change, Taliban terrorism and bogey-man cyber attacks, the overall result becomes obvious – a planned, wholesale destruction of personal liberty and earned wealth.
They play, we pay. Unless we act with solidarity and dogged sabotage now, it’s coming to your bank account sooner than you think.
