Evil Uses Hopelessness to Keep Us from Acting

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, no matter that evil is repulsive in it’s purest form, disguised it can be very attractive, evil feeds off people’s desire for justice. It directs and feeds a sense of anger and frustration, and therefore a burning desire for justice, at the end of a gun if that is what it takes… ever impelling us towards violence, and when violence erupts, evil hides it by diverting our attention, thus further nurturing a general sense of unease and hopelessness. Once the mixture of oil and ammonium nitrate is exactly right, all it takes is a small pre detonation, an otherwise small event like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, and the whole thing explodes. History is nothing if not this story recurring over and over. The first most pernicious thing about evil though, is just that, it’s ability to hide it’s hideousness with a porcelain mask.

Today we can see the actions of evil clearly if only we look behind the mask, with an open mind and open hearts. We have a faction that is rioting in the streets, attacking peaceful protesters and disrupting events to shut down speakers they disagree with, another faction that is daily attacking anyone not of their faith and even those of their faith that are not sufficiently correct in the interpretation of that faith, and the elite claim it is the victims they are afraid of not the perpetrators. The elite in other words, cheer on the bullies while lamenting that the kid on the ground with the bleeding lip, who’s lunch money is being stolen every day, might stand back up and punch the bully in the nose… because they get a cut of that lunch money! All done in the name of social justice.

We have the Antifa movement that openly calls for violence, in the name of justice, even against white babies, holding violent demonstrations where they smash anything they get their hands on and leave heaps of garbage behind, as if to show their utter disregard for even their own kitchens. The Black Lives matter movement that openly calls for the murder of police, even as police are shot by snipers in Dallas. As the Tea Party was setting on lawn chairs listening quietly to speakers talk about the US Constitution, and fastidiously cleaning up after themselves out of respect, the media that calls itself unbiased was slandering the Tea Party as violent extremists, and the Occupy Wall Street a grass roots groundswell of peaceful protest, even as the OWS hoodlums spilled garbage and human feces into banks, smashed windows and engaged in a rape culture. We tolerate George Soros funded crypto fascist beating up Conservatives at conservative rallies, then the same media claims it was the Trump protesters, who were beaten up at the Trump rally, that were the instigators! In every case here the media sides with the bully and blames the victims! Could it be more obvious than that?

The globalist elite are, as one mind, in this. There were no terrorist attacks in Europe before the Islamic immigration waves of the late 1980s. The rise in terrorism and terrorist related attacks is directly correlated to the increase in Muslim immigration, yet the more Islamic terror attacks, the more the elite bring in more Muslims. It is almost as if the terror attack at the Olympics in 1972 gave the global elite the idea to destabilize the west, by intentionally creating the civil disaster, daily terrorist attacks, we have in Europe today. It would seem the elite understand, as does everyone, that most Muslims are very nice people, so to get in the few that are not nice, there needs to be hundreds of thousands brought in. Moreover, once war breaks out the elite know even the nice Muslims will side with their not so nice brethren to establish Sharia.

It is a delicate balancing act though. The globalists have to keep us feeling more hopeless than fearful. They have to keep it in balance because if the balance gets too far off we will act. The idea is to ratchet up our feeling of hopelessness along with our fear and disgust at what is going on until we feel we cant take it anymore, the balance of ammonium nitrate to oil has been achieved and some small event will trigger the reaction, say, the rape of Lucretia by Sextus Tarquinius… and we will explode. Eventually we always get there, it is only a matter of how long it will take. The longer it takes, the more violent the explosion and the more human blood will be spilled. Sadly, by talking to people, the feeling of hopelessness in us, has grown so strong that the usurpations will build to a very well balanced oil and ammonium nitrate mixture… before we blow.

Sincerely,

John Pepin

Stagnationist Economic Policies

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

 

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, we have learned nothing from the stagnationist policies that created the Great Depression, and so are repeating it. The policies that kept the US, and indeed the entire world, in recession for a decade led directly to the Second World War are being mirrored today, with the only exception being unprecedented monetizing of US debt by the Federal Reserve and aped by most of the rest of the economic powerhouses around the world. The economic stagnation has been only slightly mitigated by the flood of printed money flowing into the world’s economies, but the potential for economic disaster is greatly magnified. Had our economists learned a thing from their history books, they would be decrying the stagnationist policies of the US government, for causing such stagnation in the US economy and by extension the entire world’s. Our jobs, wages, retirement, children’s future and our very lives are all put at risk by the stagnationist policies of the US government.

 

When FDR was elected he ran on a platform similar to Calvin Coolidge’s laissez faire policies. Once Roosevelt gained power however he turned to the policies of Hoover instead. FDR increased regulation by orders of magnitude, just like Obama, taxes were raised by Roosevelt higher than they had been under Wilson, the same as Obama raised taxes on everything he could and is still raising taxes today, Roosevelt vilified business and the free market exactly like Obama has. The only place the policies of Roosevelt and Obama have differed are the price fixing that Roosevelt was so in favor of, and the money printing Obama has had the “benefit” of.

 

In US economic history there have only been three recessions that led to stagnation. The Great Depression, Stagflation of the 1970s and Obama’s New Normal. All of them had Progressive Presidents and all of those Presidents taxed, regulated and attacked the free market. They all poured sugar into the gas tank of the economy and then claimed the fault was the economy’s. All had a willing media to muddy the water so the American people couldn’t see what the real problems were. The policies of those three President’s, Roosevelt, Carter and Obama are the epitome of stagnationist.

 

Two of those periods of stagnation took the unseating of the President and new policies to be adopted to break the cycle of stagnation. Roosevelt’s Great Depression took the Second World War to shock the economy and the American people out of the malaise that builds up during extended periods of economic stagnation. When Roosevelt died and Truman took over, the policies of over taxation and regulation were backed off, and the economy roared to life. In the case of Jimmy Carter’s Stagflation, it took the laissez faire policies of Hayek, and put into action by Ronald Reagan, to get the economy going again. The economic rebound of the 1980s were in stark contrast to the economic malaise of Carter’s Stagflation. Obama’s New Normal is still underway and will take the removal of Obama and a wholesale overturning of his economic policies to get us and the rest of the world out of stagnation.

 

The Second World War was largely a result of the Great Depression. The economy was bad in the US but it was much worse in Germany under the Wiemar Republic. The blatant socialist policies fueled by money printing, coupled with the draconian reparations from the armistice of the First World War, destroyed Germany’s economy. The result was poverty, hopelessness and famine, which always leads to social unrest. In such a climate, the conditions are ripe for an autocrat to seize power, and in Germany in the 1930’s one did. Adolph Hitler used his Brown Shirts to distribute food to the hungry, medicine to the ill and hope to the hopeless, (just like Caesar did a few centuries earlier). This gained him the good will of the masses and they ignorantly flooded to him. The people of Germany didn’t take seriously Hitler’s rhetoric about world conquest, they only saw the fattened faces of their children. The result was the war and all the misery it visited upon the world and Germany.

 

The conditions are becoming ripe for a replay of that tragic war because of the stagnationist economic policies of Obama and the world’s leaders. The policies of Obama, like Obama care, eliminating tax deductions to businesses for plant and tool upgrades and burdensome regulations that make it impossible to make a profit, unless the firm has political favor and doesn’t have to compete in the marketplace and instead get’s it’s profits from the taxpayer… the list goes on and on. These are all stagnationist policies similar to Carter’s and Roosevelt’s. Stagnationist policies always lead to stagnation and stagnation always leads to social unrest. In a climate of social unrest the conditions are ripe for a maniac to seize power. Where the next psychopath will rise is only known to God, but that one will unless we change our path, is certain. With the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction the next world war will make the last look like a walk in the park. So, isn’t it time to stop the stagnationist policies, and return to economic policies that lead to growth instead?
