It’s the War Mobilization, Stupid!

Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign defeated incumbent president George HW Bush with the help of Ross Perot and an unrelenting focus on the be-all-end-all of presidential campaigns: “It’s the economy, stupid.” Clinton’s slogan pithily summarized the accumulated wisdom of more than two centuries of presidential politics: Voters identify the incumbent president and incumbent party with their perception of the current state of the economy. If times are good, the president and/or his party will likely be re-elected. If not, it’s time to “throw the bums out.”

I learned this in 1979 in a course on American Economic History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. According to the professor, it was an open secret that every president tries to strong-arm the Fed into juicing up the economy prior to his re-election campaign, usually with some success.

The 2020 election provided a classic example of the power of current economic trends over national election results. As of late 2019, the US economy was booming and Donald Trump was cruising toward an easy victory. Then COVID-19 hit, the economy imploded, and suddenly Trump no longer looked like a “very stable genius” to the crucial tranches of undecided, uninformed, and/or independent voters. Also, thanks to COVID and the economic implosion, Democrats could be whipped into a much more hysterical anti-Trump frenzy than would have been otherwise possible, leading to frenetic and heavily-funded get-out-the-vote efforts. So whether or not Trump is correct about alleged vote padding in swing states, he is certainly right that absent the COVID pandemic he would have won easy re-election.

Now that we have established the crucial connection between economic trends and incumbent parties’ prospects in national elections, it’s time to ask the million-dollar question: What the @&# are the Democrats thinking?! The Biden Administration, facing very tough midterm contests this year and at least equally monumental challenges in the 2024 presidential race, has made the apparently idiotic decision to blow up the US and global economies by provoking war with Russia.

As I write this, stocks, crypto, and even the bond market aren’t just swirling around the porcelain bowl, they’re plunging through the pipes and well on their way to the sewage treatment facility. The worst inflation in 40 years, driven in part by higher food and energy costs from Biden’s war on Russia, has forced the Fed to start ratcheting interest rates upward, pushing America towards 1970s-style stagflation at best, or a 2008 or even 1929 scenario at worst. Biden’s ever-escalating giveaway of US tax dollars to Ukraine is contributing to the economic as well as military mayhem.

Is Biden senile? Is Harris an idiot? Are the Democrats suicidal? Though the answer to the first two questions is undoubted “yes,” I’m not sure that the Democratic Party leadership and the oligarchs who own it are entirely bent on political self-destruction. There must be some sort of method in their apparent madness. And I think I know what it is:

“It’s the war mobilization, stupid!”

The oligarchs who own the Democratic Party (who may overlap somewhat with the ones that own the Republicans) aren’t going to seek success in 2022 and 2024 by riding a strong economy. Instead, they are hoping to win by dragging us into war and pounding their chests and telling us to support our fearless wartime leaders—and if you don’t you’re a treasonous unpatriotic Russia-loving Putin-loving Trump-loving transphobic white nationalist conspiracy theorist scumbag.

If the war gets bad enough, and the propaganda gets loud enough, people will put up with just about any amount of economic devastation. Consider World War II. Even though the US didn’t enter the war until more than two years after it started, and never experienced the level of combat and losses other nations suffered, the American people were quickly convinced to endure draconian rationing, forced conscription, virtual slave labor in war factories, and various and sundry economic unpleasantness, all in the name of defeating the evil racially-inferior slanty-eyed Japs and the evil white supremacist Adolf Hitler. FDR, who had cruised to re-election in 1940 by promising to keep America out of the war, had no problem winning in 1944 despite his broken promise (and his Pearl Harbor treason). When the nation is on a total war footing, people snap to attention and salute and do what they’re told and don’t ask questions, and the incumbent party and president enjoy almost godlike status.

My parents were children during World War II, and they (and my grandparents) experienced food rationing, gasoline rationing, and the near-total unavailability of all sorts of consumer goods, from appliances to automobiles. Sounds familiar? It’s like what we’re heading into now—only in 2022, we’re merely facing de facto rationing as many people can no longer buy their customary allotments of food, gas, and goods. Fortunately, the authorities probably won’t start issuing ration coupons until the war really heats up.

And heat up it will. Biden’s seemingly crazy policies, foreign as well as domestic, make sense only on the assumption that we’re heading into all-out World War III. Why would the US refuse Russia’s repeated entreaties to negotiate Ukrainian neutrality and cap NATO expansion, thereby provoking a ruinous war? Why would US leaders refuse Russia’s (and Zelensky’s) overtures for a negotiated solution? Why would they create what will soon become a 100-billion-dollar arms pipeline to Ukraine, while pushing Finland and Sweden to join NATO—a move that Russia will inevitably greet with military strikes?

The real rulers of the US empire, the neoconservatives who overthrew the Republic on 9/11/2001, are bent on world conquest. A decision has apparently been made behind the scenes to fight World War III sooner rather than later, in service to the Wolfowitz Doctrine that the US will tolerate no challenges to its global hegemony.

The neocons have made their position clear: They will either rule the planet unilaterally or destroy it. That is why the Empire and its vassals are inflicting economic devastation on their own people, and the people of the world, as they frantically mobilize for the biggest and most destructive war in human history.

If we are going to stop it, the time is now. Once NATO is officially at war with Russia, dissent will be ruthlessly quashed. And once the nukes start flying, we will spend whatever is left of our lives wishing we had done more to stop the neocon Strangeloves from pursuing their mad dream of world conquest.

  1. Every future US president is invited by the Bilderberg Conference. Regarding Obama election He and Hilary Clinton were invited, Probably to inform her they were not going to keep their promise to her. All these expensive University studies trying to interprete what is going on in our world are totally nonsense. Another source is the Rockefeller Scenario for the Future, written over a decade ago. Too complex to understand for laypeople or for one expert. Short vid showing on YT. Need to know basis for zombies and psychopaths.

    • Why bring him to the argument? We all know already that if the things are going to get tough, he´s not with us! As he haven´t been in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, was he with the enslaved africans, weren´t the one´s that represent him the one´s that allowed skavery?

    • I see a lot of people saying that these are the end times and claiming God will come back to save us. Well, he did save Noah and his family so if he comes back to save us, will it be just one righteous family? As far as slavery, I assume that Romo is referring to the slave trade from Africa to North America, yet about 3 times as many slaves were taken from Africa to South America during that same time frame. Not to mention that slavery has existed since the beginning of time and in every nation against every nation. It was never right but it has always existed because bullies are everywhere.

  2. 1. NATO is the EIC (East-Indies Company) all over again.
    2. NATO’s purpose is to collateralize Russia’s $75 Trillion
    worth of natural resources.
    3. The puppet-masters wish to exterminate the straight-white-Caucasian
    the world-over aka the great-replacement policy which was installed
    with RBG in 1963.
    4. The more misery on the street – the more clients for state-welfare.
    5. Imported, imbecile, ignorant, maniacal, doped, jabbed, stabbed and poor
    mooricans are a captive-audience for the Do.miNion.Corp (DNC) NWO.
    6. The more resources they can collateralize abroad,
    the more imbeciles they can foster at home.
    7. The DNC doesn’t want to rule America, but rather to turn it into a dumpster fire, because it doesn’t lend itself to vassalization under the Feudal-cast from Europe, e.g. the Sovereign-order of the Knights Templar.
    8. America’s hope is in supporting Ron DeSantis and Rand Paul.

    • Agree with you on all of your points. All of the illegal aliens flooding into US are the replacement people. They do not have to be vaxxed and are given everything free, even baby formula, which can not be found in many stores across US.

  3. “The real rulers of the US empire, the neoconservatives who overthrew the Republic on 9/11/2001, are bent on world conquest.”

    We’ve known this for close onto 20 years, Kevin. Two decades of so-called “world conquest” have left us $30 trillion in debt and the US dollar about to implode as the world’s reserve currency. Remember what Netanyahu bragged about back in 1990, “America is a golden calf, and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and agai. 9/11 was just the practice round, Kevin. A catastrophic war with Russia will be the coup de grâce.

    • 911 IS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
      DO THE REPUBLICANS HAVE MINDS LIKE AN ELEPHANT
      OR A RINO .HOW DID THUMP TAKE SUCH A DUMP.
      EVERYONE WITH WITH HALF A BRAIN KNOWS THIS IS BS
      THE 911 RELIGION IS RE LEGION AS IN ROME UNBIND THE STICKS
      OR FAGS . IN OLD ENGLAND STICKS OF THE KING WERE MONEY BY FIAT
      THE TALLY STICKS DO NOT MATCH THUS THIS WILL NOT STAND. WAS WATERLOO A REAL BATTLE OR THE 911 DAY FOLLOW THE MONEY WHAT A GLORIOUS BATTLE FOR ENGLAND LIKE THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION
      HIC SCIBIT

  4. Great Kevin.
    I’m Italian and crap about Italian blogs cd. “against the system” I ended up on V.T.. But the music hasn’t changed. However I have to thank V.T. if in some cases they made me understand the madness of Italian blogs. And I’m referring to TRUMP vs BIDEN (Obama, Clinton, Bush and Reagan). Will you also want to receive how much thanks to you (e.g. J. Simon) lays bare the King? You have no idea of the repression I suffer but “I don’t vindo, I don’t rindo ” (the Chè). Resist to Exist.

  5. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Ankara would not agree to the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO after the two countries refused to satisfy the republic’s request for the extradition of suspects of involvement in terrorist organizations.

    “There are reports that they will not give us the terrorists. We will not say yes to the accession of these two countries to NATO,” the Turkish president said at a press conference in Ankara following talks with Algerian President Abdelmajid Tebboun. This is reported by Rambler.

    • No one can count on Erdo. He’s more of a shekelstein than any Dönmeh you have ever crossed.
      Remember I was telling you that UK is your number one enemy and I wasn’t even talking about their historical animosity, I was talking about something that The Guardian (their press is so filthy that they pretend to have a free hand but in truth their self critical write-ups are always about normalizing their crimes and at the end of the piece they always insert that after all it is all human nature) wrote recently “Secret British ‘black propaganda’ campaign targeted cold war enemies” you will see how they have used Russia and “communism” for decades to sell wars for profit.
      Filthiest creatures on earth. Tony Blair is probably on his knees right now in front of the big Ottoman ruler to let Finland be finished …

    • Like always, Erdogan is just blackmailing Nato to get some weapons and an economic relief. After some F16 (maybe he is pointing to the F35) and other equipment, he will sign the admission of them.

    • He is a politician. They are all whores. No exceptions. It’s part of the job description. Why are people still surprised by this behavior?
