Romney May Get What He Wishes and Live To Regret It

Romney May Get What He Wishes and Live To Regret It

While I see little difference between the two pseudo clones/clowns running for the head puppet office of the crumbling American Empire, the Romney puppet does grab head lines better on his new Cold War strategy. It is interesting how crumbling, broke and breaking empires try to start wars of both the hot and cold variety in an effort to show the world that they are not broke and crumbling empires. This is similar to the old and blind man getting behind a car's wheel to show he is still young and sprce and can do all those things he once did, instead of conserving his health. As usual, this ends badly in a car wreck.

Romney, ever trying to show he is more hawkish than his missile shield, military expanding at the expense of a failing economy Obama, has decided to get a good start on a new Cold War the Americans can not financially afford and should not be risking. He wasted no time in making it clear to us Russians that he is going to be a foe at best and an out and out enemy rogue dictator at worst. Romney has already declared Russia is “without question our number one geopolitical foe.” That was his first statement out of the box. Four months later, the brain trust of Romney and Co has decided to try and talk its way out of the stupid corner, by stating this on CNN: “I’m talking about most of the United Nations and actions of a geopolitical nature, Russia is the number one adversary in that regard,” he said. “That doesn’t make them an enemy. It doesn’t make them a combatant. They don’t represent the number one national security threat.”

Sorry, not much of an effort. Anyone with half a starving brain cell can tell what will bring in the next four years. If Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama was not bad enough, now we have the fifth and most out and out instalment of "Break Russia up at all costs".

Than came the Poland visit. The theme was predicted early on, both by French and US papers.

The American goof-prone vice president Bidden, for once sounded sound, when he stated: “He acts like he thinks the Cold War is still on, Russia is still our major adversary. I don’t know where he has been.”

Even in Poland, while meeting with Walesa, Walesa's own organization, Solidarity, was working hard to distance itself from Romney: "Solidarity was in no way involved in the organisation of this meeting and did not take the initiative to invite Mitt Romney to Poland. Regrettably we learned from our American friends at AFL-CIO headquarters who represent over 12 million workers about Mitt Romney's backing of attacks on trade unions and worker's rights,"

Non of this topped the Romney drive. Romney worked to paint Poland as a Russian victim, ignoring not only 500 years of Polish occupation and aggression towards Russian lands, history I am sure he is clueless about, but the resent video recordings of hundreds of Polish skin heads attacking Russia families and tourists, both walking and sitting in cafes, after the Polish-Russian match. Yes, victims indeed.

But now on to Mitt's stupidest remarks on Russia, from his Polish stage.

Romney condemned Russia as a place where "country where the desire to be free is met with brutal oppression". Really? You mean a near riot where out of 18 injured, 11 were police, stabbed by the pro-"freedom" communists and Nazis who made up the bulk of the protest? Oh and how are those Occupy Riots working out? You men, they're good exercise for club and pepper spray wielding American police, with thousands arrested and hundreds sent to very long prison terms. The way the US system normally works is a policeman beats the life out of a Occupy protester and than arrest him for assaulting the police officer (or rather his baton).

The wanna be leader of one of the biggest police states in the modern world, where anti-homosexual opinions can lead to financial and personal ruin (see the Chikfela restaurant scandal), or ousting from universities or to an end to a military career, a nation where the 16 security spy agencies, yes 16, read your emails, texts and listen in to your phone calls, as well as sit on buses and search your bags at will, as well as thousands upon thousands of road blocks and checkpoints, has this to say about Russia: "In Russia, once-promising advances toward a free and open society have faltered,"

This from a man who ruined his state's economy with Romneycare, driving hundreds of thousands into poverty and who is beholden to a theocratic Mormon leadership that runs the lives of several million US citizen as well as the government of two states. This is also a prime backer of the continuing Arab Spring which in each infected nation has turned into an Arab Islamic Winter, with tyrannical and murderous Islamic regimes, led by the Muslim Brotherhood and that den of evil, the House of Saud (may the devil take the lot of them) in charge of Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, as well as sympathetic regimes in Sudan, Turkey and Jordan.

Mr. Romney is again absolutely ignorant of facts, not that that seems to stop him. From 1995-2010, Poland's debt to GDP ratio was averaging at 45%. In 2011, it was 56.3%, hardly a declining or shrinking government.

As for Polish "democracy" and "will of the people", the whole of the US missile "defense" shield proves this to be an absolute lie. In 2009, the year Poland officially accepted the US missile base and the $30 billion that Bush gave to grease those skids, Andrew Roberts of Northwestern University showed that opinion poles in Poland had 56% of the population against and 27% for the US bases and missiles, the rest being undecided. A two to 1 majority is against and their wishes? Ignored of course in the modern parlance of "democracy" or rather, a bunch of police state oligarchs with good PR. Bullucks on all of it.

That a return to Cold War status would be ideal for Romney and Neo-Cons is beyond doubt, that the US can ill afford this, is also beyond doubt. US 2012 budget spending is shaping up to be in the range of $3.6 trillion, of which, taxes and inputs only cover $2.47, thus over a trillion in debt added to the world's biggest debtor's account. Of this, defense related spending already makes up some 28.6% of the debt ridden budget, Soviet style spending that can have only Soviet style economic results. Of course, at least the Soviet Union died out without starting wars abroad in every corner (though there were plenty internal wars), something that can not be said for the Soviet Americans. Here is how it breaks down:

DOD Spending:                              $707.5 billion  Base budget + "Overseas Contingency Operations"
FBI Counter Terror:                         $2.7 billion      1/3rd FBI budget
International Affairs:                        $5.6 billion      Subsidized credits for arms sales abroad
Energy Department (mil projects)     $21.8 billion
Veterans Affairs                              $70 billion
Homeland Security                         $46.9 billion
NASA, mil satellites                       $3.5 billion      20% of NASA budget
Veterans Pensions                         $54.6 billion
Other Defense Mandatory spending  $8.02 billion
Interest on military debt                  $109.1 billion

With figures like this, with almost 30% of US gov spending going to defense, it is hard to see how a Cold War style outlay is possible without a final collapse of the opponent. Effectively, if Russia reeves up by doubling its outlays, it will be hurt and its backup funds will be sucked dry. If the US even matches by only a quarter increase, it will be crippled with over 36% of its budget going over. However, we know how US corruption politics works so we can easily expect a 50% reeve up, so a 43% of government budgets going to war production. In other words, a collapse.

Of course, Romney comes from a generation of inflexible clones who have, over 20 years, failed to adapt to a changing world. The results of a poll by The Voice of America showed that 47 percent of Americans over age 50 still view Moscow largely in  Cold War terms, while 70 percent of those under 50 consider it “friendly.” While this may be the last ride of the outdated and static, it will more than likely be the last ride that takes the youth over the final cliff. The American baby boomers will not go out in silence, they will go out yelling for blood and clawing their own nation and children to death. One more blood ride for the fizzling had beens. And Romney as their would-be leader has become a bad Hollywood characterature of a bad C grade movie.

Worse yet, Romney, a professing Mormon, hates Russia because we refuse to be colonized by his heretical faith and as much has been said often enough. It also does not help that many of the "Saints" of the Latter Day Saints, aka Mormons, believe whole heartedly that Russia is the font of all evil and will bring Armageddon. To that end, their religious job is to destroy us.

A few years ago, I read a book, whose title I can not remember (if any of my loyal readers can help, I would great appreciate it), that was written in 1919 and was available for free online. The novel was an act of fiction written about a future European war. The world was such that the US was ruled by a Mormon minority. Europe was a union of atheist socialists and Russia, the empire was ruled by an Orthodox Tsar. The Europeans attempted to enlighten Russia by invading it, to destroy the Christian God, backed by a militant Mormon America. At first they beat back the Russian armies to Moscow and Sevastopol, fighting street by street in insane combat. But those damned, God fearing and zealous Russians just would not give up. Instead, with blind faith in God, they counter attacked and pushed the Europeans back, back from Russia and back through the whole of Europe.

The Europeans who were couched to fear the barbaric and primitive Russian barbarian, over their atheist enlightenment, were instead startled to find that not only were they treated very civilly but were reintroduced to the Christian faith, to which they flocked in a maddening stampede. The book ends with Britain, the last stronghold of Atheist Enlightenment, awaiting the Russian/European Christian armada's lasting and the salvation of the American Mormon Armada raising to the Atheist rescue. Throughout the war, the Mormons in the US were supporting the Atheists in the destruction of the Christian Church. The book ends, when a Christian revolution in America overthrows the Mormon tyranny and the US Armada is ordered to turn around. The Russian Armada lands in England and the Tsar of Russia parades through the streets of London to cheering English crowds who have once again been freed to practice Christianity and to enjoy their own English culture as opposed to the Atheist uni-culture that was forced on them.

While this book was written almost 100 years ago, it seems to have been a great inspiration and prophesy of the way this world is now shaping up: with the Atheist European Union and the Mormon influence and possible control of America vs the reChristianed and soon to be monarchial Russia.

God save us all.

There's an underlying recognition that Romney is not going to win the election in November. There's a certai level of apathy in the electorate and if a Iran war starts Obama is sure to win.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday launched political grenades at Mitt Romney, arguing that Republicans haven’t coalesced behind the GOP frontrunner because they don’t believe he can beat President Barack Obama in November.

“If the far right thought that Romney could win, they might be more enthusiastic about him,” Pelosi told POLITICO’s Mike Allen during Tuesday’s Playbook Breakfast. “But they question what he stands for and they don’t think he’s going to win. So what’s the sell? I’m not sure he knows what he stands for, and that makes it harder too.”

Well, Romney did get one thing right on his tour: ‘my’ country is making a mess of the Olympics.

And as our media is going into paroxysms of rage over the Pussy Riot issue, and the supposed attack on freedom, we are a lot calmer about soldiers being able to install rockets on our roofs, MORE CCTVs installed in London (I’m not so much surprised that the Brits are not complaining or the government is getting more authoritarian so much as that they’ve FOUND SPACE for them), the fact that our civil liberties are being taken away because of the risk of Islamists whilst we are pouring money into Islamist causes in Syria/Libya, the government paying a fortune to G4 for them to do something which they failed to do and… well, anything else basically. But we can still get into a self-righteous rage over ‘singers’ being arrested for being offensive in a church.

Believe it or not I actually quite like Romney’s open contempt for our quisling politicians and parliaments and for the squeaks of protest they’ve replied with: ‘We’ve been your slaves, being loyal to your congress rather than our electorate, at least you could LIE on our behalf’.

But sadly, the Brits are indifferent as ever.

I say Brits but utterly neglected by the media/ political establishment, the SNP has been making strong electoral gains, especially amongst Scottish youth. Many of us see no future in the union.

The ironic thing, speaking of warmongering, is that Britain has a fecundity of middle-aged blood-thirsty arm-chair warriors who think that every war is worth fighting. But the Brits can’t take more than 400 casualties in a conflict without wanting to withdraw. I hope that Scotland gets out of the Union before they get the opportunity to lick American behind and join yet another 'good fight'.

I wouldn't agree with Romney that Russia is the US's greatest "foe", that belongs more to China, even as they creep toward capitalism while the US heads toward communism. I'd say that the US and Russia are more akin to opponents than "foes", both competing for the favor of the various minor countries around the world. I agree with your assessment that we're spending more than we can afford in those ventures, likely with the similar result of your USSR, bankrupt and splintered. (Tho my personal wishes for Texas independence would approve of the end result.) I have a feeling that any Democrats in power would continue to pretend the problem doesn't exist, printing more and more worthless money to give to their constituents at the bottom of the economic ladder; more bread and circuses to appease the proletariat.

Your assessment of the Chic-Fil-A "scandal" if off-target, as they had their most successful business day, breaking world records for sales that day, due to the overwhelming support by people fed up with the condescending attitudes from the pro-homosexual lobby (pretty much the entire US Left, the Media "Elites," as well as some apathetic moderates), while the Gay "kiss-in" counterprotest failed miserably two days later, with almost no visible support.

Great piece. Don t forget this clown has surrounded himself with so called Neocons. These are just ex Trotskyites who still have a hard on for Russia.

Caryl said...

Thanks for another great post. Hope you can find the name of that novel- I'd love to read it. Mormonism seems to me the absolute nadir, the absolute parody of true religion.

@gregor

Yes, it does amaze me that they're still finding places to place new cameras...there must be 3-4 watching your every step every day. All in the name of freedom.

Stanislav said...

@barry

Yes, that is worrying. Read about the 48ers, the 1848ers, they are the founders of the socialist Republican Party.

Stanislav said...

@caryl

Yes there's a mormon nest not far from my neighborhood....see them constantly coming and going. Mostly young American kids.
