The Oligarchs are going to do to the USA what they did to Russia in the 1990’s and want to do again

The Oligarchs want to rule everything, even though their rule ends up being misrule and invites a counter response from the Deep State.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Oligarchs seized the Russian economy and stole everything that wasn’t nailed down. The country was broke, it was anarchy. Russians would have starved to death except for the fact that they still had a tradition of small scale farming and kitchen gardening.

I remember seeing in Moscow, elderly babushkas selling their home jarred pickles on the sidewalk. No joke. You could get home butchered meat, fish that some dude caught himself. Potatoes dug by a hardy factory worker, recently unemployed. Watching a proud, strong people survive a country devastated by the oligarchs was fascinating.

The Russians just accepted that their government would always be corrupt. There is no Anglo-Saxon sense of fair play and transparency and high trust over there. Russians are part Asian hybrids, and what was lost was the Anglo-Saxon orderliness. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing. What is gained is a reckless manliness (in a good way). Those guys are ready to fight. They have the mentality of old time barbarians.

So now we are going to experience what Russia experienced in the 1990’s, thanks to a recent Supreme Court decision. It will be interesting to see how the Anglo-Saxon core of this country reacts.

Anglo-Saxon America remembers a time of transparency and honest business; a country under control of small town conservative business owners who stewarded local resources and behaved with a modest sense of stewardship politics, rather than tribal chieftain Big Man politics of the oligarchs.

We were a small town country, and thus had a better sense of stewardship and limits on government. Old time USA government really did do less, and was happy with it. They believed in the wisdom of the ordinary citizens. If there was a natural disaster, private funds were raised for recovery.

The Oligarchs will attempt to preside over a defunded nanny state. Maximum control with minimum expenditure. But defunded and nanny state don’t play well together. They are antonyms, contradictions.

So the Oligarchy may turn out to be good for us precisely because it will be very inept rule. They will always try to do more with less; they will cut us loose, so to speak. They will not take responsibility for the survival of American citizens; we will have to look out for ourselves.

So Oligarchy will likely lead to ineffective government; a government that would like to over-regulate, but in fact can be bribed to go the other way. They won’t pay the government enough to make them less bribe-able.

There will be a gangland politics; the strongest gangs will bribe the government to do their bidding. The enemy will get a face.

White people will see gangland politics up close and personal, and adapt quickly to be the baddest gangsters themselves. Oligarchy will create its own worst nightmare. The ultimate shitting of the nest.

Most importantly, we will be forced to develop local economy, just to get a crust of bread to eat. The oligarchs will break the food system because they will neglect critical infrastructure until it breaks, or do something stupid that breaks the machine.

The oligarchs will not steward what we have right now, the abundance and the competence, into the future. They will screw it up, one way or another, unless the Deep State stops them. Putin was the Deep State rising up against the oligarchs. That could happen here too. The Deep State isn’t necessarily the good guys, but any circulation of the elites is good. Let them occupy themselves with fighting each other, and leave us alone!

This Robert Reich article is a very good heads up as to the implications of this latest SCOTUS decision regarding money in politics. This is going to hugely affect the culture of this country.

Worse is better for now!

The Supreme Court decision is inviting an American Oligarchy

If wealth and income weren’t already so concentrated in the hands of a few, the shameful “McCutcheon” decision by the five Republican appointees to the Supreme Court wouldn’t be as dangerous. But by taking “Citizen’s United” one step further and effectively eviscerating campaign finance laws, the Court has issued an invitation to oligarchy.

Almost limitless political donations coupled with America’s dramatically widening inequality create a vicious cycle in which the wealthy buy votes that lower their taxes, give them bailouts and subsidies, and deregulate their businesses – thereby making them even wealthier and capable of buying even more votes. Corruption breeds more corruption.

That the richest four hundred Americans now have more wealth than the poorest 150 million Americans put together, the wealthiest 1 percent own over 35 percent of the nation’s private assets, and 95 percent of all the economic gains since the start of the recovery in 2009 have gone to the top 1 percent — all of this is cause for worry, and not just because it means the middle class lacks the purchasing power necessary to get the economy out of first gear.

It is also worrisome because such great concentrations of wealth so readily compound themselves through politics, rigging the game in their favor and against everyone else. “McCutcheon” merely accelerates this vicious cycle.

As Thomas Piketty shows in his monumental “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” this was the pattern in advanced economies through much of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. And it is coming to be the pattern once again.

Picketty is pessimistic that much can be done to reverse it (his sweeping economic data suggest that slow growth will almost automatically concentrate great wealth in a relatively few hands). But he disregards the political upheavals and reforms that such wealth concentrations often inspire — such as America’s populist revolts of the 1890s followed by the progressive era, or the German socialist movement in the 1870s followed by Otto von Bismarck’s creation of the first welfare state.

In America of the late nineteenth century, the lackeys of robber barons literally deposited sacks of money on the desks of pliant legislators, prompting the great jurist Louis Brandeis to note that the nation had a choice: “We can have a democracy or we can have great wealth in the hands of a few,” he said. “But we cannot have both.”

Soon thereafter America made the choice. Public outrage gave birth to the nation’s first campaign finance laws, along with the first progressive income tax. The trusts were broken up and regulations imposed to bar impure food and drugs. Several states enacted America’s first labor protections, including the 40-hour workweek.The question is when do we reach another tipping point, and what happens then?

Robert Reich, one of the nation’s leading experts on work and the economy, is Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton. Time Magazine has named him one of the ten most effective cabinet secretaries of the last century. He has written 13 books, including his latest best-seller, “Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future;” “The Work of Nations,” which has been translated into 22 languages; and his newest, an e-book, “Beyond Outrage.” His syndicated columns, television appearances, and public radio commentaries reach millions of people each week. He is also a founding editor of the American Prospect magazine, and Chairman of the citizen’s group Common Cause. His new movie “Inequality for All” is in Theaters. His widely-read blog can be found at http://www.robertreich.org.

  1. SomeAnon says:

    This SCOTUS decision is odious, undoubtedly, but American elections have belonged to various oligarchs for decades.

    United States campaign finance laws may permit more corruption than those of most other first world countries, but it’s not like robust campaign finance laws have saved places like Sweden and France from becoming Cultural Marxist dumps.

  2. Wally D. says:

    Multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson is an American Oligarch and has been given a blank check by the Court to buy the next president, with the condition that the new president bombs Iran, for Israel.

    • Matthew says:

      I’m suspicious about the sudden surge of attention to Adelson. I had never heard of him until last week, when I saw his name in three different articles on different topics on the same day. Perhaps he’s a sacrificial goat.

      • Denise says:

        Oh – he’s been around for some time. Years. He IS your RULER. Je is one of THE main Money Jews. You are hearing of him because all the GOP POTUS candidates just slithered on their bellies in front of him, supplicating and pledging deathless fealty.

      • Mr. Rational says:

        Google “Adelson Dollar Disorder” for a hint of where he’s been getting press.

        I doubt that the sudden media exposure will be good for him.

      • Dan Poole says:

        VDARE’s been all over his ass for a long time now. He’s no scapegoat. He’s the real deal. And the good news is that he’s hated by the mainstream left as much as he’s hated by WN’s. Adelson has no friends outside of the corporate whores in Conservatism Inc.

      • Adelson is the guy that hired Newt Gingrich to run in 2012, taking South Carolina, Georgia, and a bit of the religious right away from Santorum, or any other challenger to Romney. Kevin MacDonald wrote a really good article about him a few days ago. He’s an international gambling magnate, which essentially means he’s an organized crime leader. You can just imagine: money laundering, drugs, tax evasion, gambling, sex trafficking, etc. Some of his overseas properties have been getting some negative publicity due to their direct links to organized crime.

        The GOP is truly a party of abject whores. Adelson is a pro-gay marriage, self-described liberal promoting illegal immigration, race replacement, anti-Christianity, and is openly anti-American, Zionist, and pro-Israel.

        Yet the so-called “conservative” “family values” “Christian” Republican party can’t suck up to this guy enough.

    This was stickied today on Zero Hedge:

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-04-04/us-threatens-russia-sanctions-over-petrodollar-busting-deal

    US Threatens Russia Over Petrodollar-Busting Deal

    On the heels of Russia’s potential “holy grail” gas deal with China, the news of a Russia-Iran oil “barter” deal, it appears the US is starting to get very concerned about its almighty Petrodollar

    *U.S. HAS WARNED RUSSIA, IRAN AGAINST POSSIBLE OIL BARTER DEAL
    *U.S. SAYS ANY SUCH DEAL WOULD TRIGGER SANCTIONS
    *U.S. HAS CONVEYED CONCERNS TO IRANIAN GOVT THROUGH ALL CHANNELS

    We suspect these sanctions would have more teeth than some travel bans, but, as we noted previously, it is just as likely to be another epic geopolitical debacle resulting from what was originally intended to be a demonstration of strength and instead is rapidly turning out into a terminal confirmation of weakness.

    ZOG is putting out ridiculous agitprop about Russia invading the USA. They are beginning to get hysterical:

    • MOISHE says:

      I studied this jew prick whilst I was doing my economics degree at uni – he was the guru of industrial relations – another smarmy yid giving his 2 sheckels worth. I remember that Chomsky was another yid that everyone took seriously in the 90s – I guess 911 blew that apart – exposing Chomsky’s gatekeeping attributes and his love for his tribe.

    • mindweapon says:

      The remark where he says, “let’s make sure the stimulus doesn’t go to white male construction workers” right?

      I think that was a reveal of what kind of man makes Mr. Reich feel inadequate. he sees a white man construction worker and has that kind of Portnoy’s Complaint anxiety.

  8. Anonymous says:

    Overall your point is true wrt oligarchs desire to do to USA what they did to ussr. But don’t fall for this campaign finance bullshit. Multicult anti whites obsess over it which is how you know it’s not a big deal. It’s a smokescreen at worst. The ruling class will rule the country until it or they or both are destroyed. They will adjust their means as neccesary. No system approved measures can possibly erode their power. Ie, passing a law will never, ever, work. Who writes campaign finance law?They do. Do you think McCain and feingold would write a law that benefitted us more than it benefitted the ruling class? Do you think that by putting limits on money donations we the people were on the cusp of taking power back? And then the Supreme Court took that away? Please

  9. ConantheCoNtrarian says:

    Although Reich might be right about the situation, I fear his solution, which would be more statist, collectivist, Frankfurt School Bolshevism. He is all that through and through.

    • mindweapon says:

      Conan,

      All the bad policy leads to a good outcome — collapse and then they have no more control over us because they can’t pay the enforcers.

      Just as the epidemic of single motherhood could be symbolized by a government check replacing a father, a liberal enforcer is nothing but a walking paycheck. A liberal enforcer is a government contract.

      The government will still hand out paper but it won’t be worth anything, like in Russia in the 90’s. I was there. I knew people who were paid millions of rubles but were still poor.

      A huge underground economy came out of this. When the USA is forced to bring back an underground economy to survive, we’ll be free because we will dominate the marketplace because of our greater competence.

      The US government has been purposely hobbling us for decades in order to make “equality.” It’s been breaking our eggs to make their omelette, and by eggs, I mean the eggs of our women are being broken.

      We are being genocided because we would have had a much higher birthrate if not for the Judeo-Government thumb on the scale actively suppressing our birthrates.

      But when the Government is no longer able to so egregiously thumb the scales to the end of our harm, decline and genocide, we shall bounce back very strong.

  10. Craig says:

    Interesting I noticed some anti-white propaganda on a news show last night, an assimilated Chinese and a Jew asking for more equal representation in the federal parliament. Emphasis was on assimilated Chinese, an interesting tactic. Australia also takes part in the G20. The break up seems to be coming, I have a feeling they want more visa worker immigration though, and I can see that getting the kick in the arse, if they up it too much more, which is the plan for the next 20 or 30 years… Fights breaking out in the pubs already…Next will be smashed shops and then kaput after that.

    • MOISHE says:

      craig – the 457 visa scam will be increased for sure – this is the way of keeping whites un-skilled and flooding us with turdskin slaves – is pretty obvious even to the dumbest observer. Abbott seemed to throw crumbs out by stopping the ludicrous jew-written ‘hate-speech’ legislation – but whats the use criticising the invasion of turd-world slaves when they are given zog-mandated visa’s to come into oz and invade our workplaces/society??

  11. Sam says:

    I read Reichs’ book “The Work of Nations,” and it’s reasonably good. I wouldn’t trust him or anyone he approved of to pull off an industrial policy though.
    A good book is “Blindside: Why Japan Is Still on Track to Overtake the U.S. By the Year 2000” by Eamonn Fingleton . Yes he was somewhat wrong but the fundamental ideas he covered were very revealing. The Japanese still make a lot more items than is let on by trade figures. They make lots and lots of components that go to China where they’re assembled and stamped “made in China”. They also made large amounts of tools that the Chinese use in their factories. They also do this all over Asia. The Japanese learned in the 80’s to keep your mouth shut if you’re doing well. I think a lot of their statistics are way lower than the actual figures. In some ways I believe that the Japanese have the best country in the world. Their elites actually look after the common guy to a much larger extent than most places. They keep the Jews at arms length. Even their crime is somewhat regulated. Their gangsters follow set patterns and don’t get too violent. If they do the gov. cracks down BIG time but as long as they only do a little gambling and small time drugs they let them be.

  12. JB says:

    The main way of transferring wealth downward is tight control of the borders. The wealthy aren’t the only ones getting richer, a study done a short while back showed that virtually all new jobs created went to immigrants. The basic law of supply and demand hasn’t been repealed. It goes without saying that in the long run these third-worlders are incapable of running or even contributing much to an advanced economy, they are parasites. And they’ll eventually put in a series of Hugo Chavezes into power. What does Reich and his ilk think that will do for the economy? Genocide against white people through racist colonialism takes precedent over economic health in the minds of the left, and particularly in the minds of Jewish racists like Reich. It takes precedent over everything. He supports the main program impoverishing America while moaning about the periphery. (None of which means we don’t desperately need campaign finance reform.)

    • mindweapon says:

      Quite true, JB. Closing the borders and deporting the invaders would certainly raise wages and transfer wealth downward.

      It was still useful information to post about campaign finance though, because it shows that the oligarchs are over-reaching like they did in the post USSR period.

      • Mr. Rational says:

        Yesterday my local rag ran an article about high rents causing stress to people.

        We have 20 million unemployed.  How could rents be high when incomes are down?

        Simple:  the country is flooded with immigrants, some of which are illegal and live 8 to a 2-BR apartment, others who receive subsidized or even free rent.  Americans get nothing.

  13. wobbly says:

    “The Oligarchs are going to do to the USA what they did to Russia in the 1990′s”

    Yup. They have no brakes hence they always destroy themselves in the end. Unfortunately they always take down civilization with them in the process.

  14. Sam says:

    You may need this info. Kurt Saxon of “The Poor Man’s James Bond” fame is a survivalist. He has good books on Hydroponics, old time chemistry, and other stuff suitable for survivalist. He had an article on his web site about cheap eating. He used grains cooked in a thermos. Boil water, put grains and water in thermos. One thing he said was to get your grains from a feed store for animals. Same grains. Get animal feed as growing seed may have coatings. Sprouting grains is very important. You can get all your vitamins from sprouting grains. You can use screen for covering mason jars to sprout or they make nice plastic ones that screw on to jars.

    Pemmican is a long lasting dried meat and fat food that was the main food of plains Indians, trappers and explorers. People say Pemmican will last almost indefinitely. I don’t know if this is true. Meats expensive but the kind you use is less costly and you only need a small amount every day. Takes about a pound and a half a day for average male.

    Great book on making pemmican,

    Might not need this info now but it may come in handy later.

    One thing I forgot they have miniature cattle and sheep now. With a half an acre of grass you can raise a cow. They’re almost 50% more efficient in converting grass to meat than a normal monster breed American cow. I bet with two or three acres and judicious crop rotation you could feed a family of four. Would be cutting it close though. Five acres and you would be set.

  16. Sam says:

    My favorite sheep. An old English breed before they breed them larger. I want a couple of these but they cost $400 or so. Not too much compared to dog breeds I know a guy who gets $1000 for bulldogs.
    https://www.google.com/#q=Miniature%20Cheviot%20Sheep
    One reason I want miniatures is so I don’t have to buy fence. Put them in a body harness with a chain. Tie a big block to the chain and they can’t run off. Move the block every couple days.
