High Plateau Drifter

An astute analyst described the 2016 presidential election as a contest between the CIA and the military, each with its own candidate.

That same analyst stated that Trump wanted to pull Russia away from its alliance with China, thereby limiting the economic resources needed to maintain world wide military dominance. Thus it is remarkable to see how the generals, who backed Trump as soon as he took the lead in the Republican presidential primary, and now have taken over his foreign policy positions, will have none of it and want to reinvigorate the Russia China alliance and keep preparing for war against both at once.

These Generals seem to have no grasp of economics and more specifically, the meager resources available to the U.S. to undertake such a military posture over an extended period of years. Ironically, until recently China and to a lesser extent Russia were lending us the money to fund our military through their purchase of treasury bonds. Lately they have been selling, presumably to central banks.

We now have elements of the deep state fighting with one another - competing for scarce resources, generating conflicting factions within the intelligence community and now competing with the military. As the bureaucracy metastasized and generated multiple fiefdoms, this kind of conflict became inevitable. And as the CIA formed and funded armed proxy forces which then went rogue requiring U.S. military intervention resulting in the deaths of American soldiers in the clean up operation, natural tensions have arisen. The abortive raid in Yemen (which the enemy knew was coming) is a classic example.

And now the Republican Congress is talking up Greek style "austerity" with no stimulus and paying down the national debt. This will end badly. We either inflate or crash, and in either case working class anger increases, and with austerity it boils over quickly.

Have you followed Peter Turchin’s work on Cliodynamics?

His theory is that periods of increased equality and abundant opportunities (say 1950-1960’s) lead to a widening of the elite pool (as more people get the chance to study at college, or new positions in businesses etc).

The power-holders can get along in a cooperative consensus-way. However the number of power-holding positions stays roughly the same as the number of contenders increase more than the number of power-holding positions that in turn stops to increase (or increase slower than the number of contenders).

For example, the US population has almost doubled since 1960 but there are still only 100 senators, 435 rep., one president and so on at the federal level of politics. Not only in politics but in other areas as well (university faculties, medicine, businesses) competition for power-holding prestigious positions increase as the supply pool increase more than the number of power-holding positions.

All true re Turchin, but I think that the problem he notes will manifest itself much more quickly and clearly in a government bureaucracy where participants must struggle against competitors for power with out the external reference yardstick of individual contribution to market based profit and loss.

Steve Sailer misses David Brooks’ point in his NY Times column. Brooks is calling for Civil War II against the European Christian ancestral core of the United States. David Brooks is now open about his eliminationist intentions regarding White Christians.

David Brooks writes of Abraham Lincoln:

“Lincoln was no soulless technocrat. He fought fanaticism by doubling down on Enlightenment methods, with charity, reason and patience. He worked tirelessly for unity over division.”

David Brooks is suggesting that Americans of European Christian ancestry who want immigration restrictions need to be put down in a bloody civil war so as to preserve his precious “Enlightenment.” I prefer Van Morrison’s song “Enlightenment” to Brooks’ thinly veiled desire to see Civil War II break out in order to crush White Christians who resist mass immigration and multicultural mayhem.

Abraham Lincoln was responsible for the death of 600,000 or more Americans. William Seward of New York wanted to avoid the Civil War, but Northern financial interests who owned Abraham Lincoln wanted a war. Just like David Brooks’ co-religionists in the evil Neo-Con gang wanted war in the Middle East to benefit Israel.

Trump is a cuck. So of course he’s for it. Get ready for about 300 million new “Americans” coming here. He caved like a limp noodle because Ivanka and Jared want to be popular, and what do they care about ordinary working people?

Women are in fact the key to this. White women figure that any man who can’t succeed in a sea of non-White immigrants is a genetic loser who deserves to die...

“Lets you and him fight” is the reason for Third World Mass immigration. It lets women figure quickly who the top 5 percent dominant ones are and discard the rest...

Remember that back in 1860 the Federal Government was financed primarily by tariffs and secondarily by excise taxes. U.S. tariffs gave the manufacturing North a huge profit advantage over its European competitors in sales to the South.

Secession meant that the South could erect its own tariffs including against Northern goods, plunging the North into depression.

At that time national politics in the North was largely financed by contributions from the railroad barons competing for franchise rights west of the Mississippi. A federal grant meant the right to lay rails and included every other quarter section (160 acres) along each side of the rails. Such grants were worth a fortune.

An independent South would have removed much of the Federal pork and if extended along the parallel that defined the northern border of the Mason Dickson line, would have deprived the Northern lines of the desirable southern pass (what is now Interstate 10) around the Rockies.

Now is like the last few weeks before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Other people are coming to this conclusion. For example, see comment #24 at:

We are facing the same circumstances/processes of Wiemar Germany and 1930s Spain but also what happened in Jamaica with the slaves wiping out the whole population of whites. All the whites were murdered in the Jamaican slave uprising--the first intifada.

In America, the minorities are being filled with rage and revenge. They are out for white blood. Listen to Lena Dunham. Christian SJWs, like Angela Merkel, like the 400 Roman Catholic Bishops, are selling us down the drain. Christian SJWs are the same as Marxists. They are channeling the Spirit of Evil.

We are in one big mess. With European Atheists, European Masons, SJW Christians all working hand in hand with Jews for the re-building of the Tower of Babel.

Consider the battle of Badajoz in [S]pain when the nationalists began overrunning “republican” communist/anarchist controlled territory. Watch the following starting at 35:00: https://youtu.be/8YhBDJvbl4k?t=34m39s That is what is coming. The western Marxists, Merkel, Obama, etc are setting the stage such that the forces that push back will have little choice but to exterminate all who stand against them. They are setting up a conflict that will be brutal beyond any of our imaginations. I'd say prepare, but the rate of ammo and firearm purchases suggest that enough people can smell the scent of war on the winds.
