Here we go

As always, please do check sources for their sources because this is critical as to whether to believe or dismiss.

For a start, while others scan the loony-press for that take on things, there are also dilemmas within the centre-right-liberty sphere.  The first here is alt-right by designation, but maybe closer to straight reportage this time:

In a nutshell, there’s a case that the Donald has effectively nationalised the Fed and Corbyn must be red with envy – Pelosi and the Hildabeast though will be in deep fear.

Before my own very left-field take further down, our special correspondent sends:

… with the suggestion that Gab is also not a bad place to be.

It’s essentially about the Donald doing what we’d hoped for a long time he would, even promised in 2016.  Quite possible but with what ulterior motive?  Just to clear away his opponents?  For us?

Because I keep coming back to scriptural references to prophets, don’t I, and not even the Elect realising in the latter days and all that.  Many learnèd takes I’ve read over the years on the Anti-Christ say he doesn’t even know he is until quite late in the game – he goes public once the Temple is rebuilt and he walks into the Holy of Holies.  Sometime around then is the tribulation.  he is meant to be taken as the champion of Israel, the Messiah, but in fact becomes a very naughty boy.

I’d say that if that were so, it’s still a fair way down the track, maybe not, who knows?  One thing for sure is that if he’s done this – please go back to the Triangle post – the other two apexes [apices?] are not going to be too happy at this power grab.

We’re also caught in that age old ‘it goes against the grain to jump this way but what choice do we have’ dilemma.  For the Donald to be able to do this, there had to have been a totally OTT opposition, corrupt beyond measure, insane [AOC], such that no one sane could vote for them – we’ve been through all that.

And that’s every step of the way.  For the next power grab, there needs to be a new crisis … and so on.  Which is not to say that that’s a bad thing at this point – if you argue from that eschatological perspective, he’s not actually a baddy yet and anyway, did he nearly die as a child and come back to life?  Prince William did.  I might be quite wrong and you might well say it’s all bollox but it does seem down the track some way.

Still, interesting times, eh?

    From the screen shot on Vox
    So how can they do this? The Fed will finance a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for each acronym to conduct these operations. The Treasury, using the Exchange Stabilization Fund, will make an equity investment in each SPV and be in a “first loss” position. What does this mean? In essence, the Treasury, not the Fed, is buying all these securities and backstopping of loans; the Fed is acting as banker and providing financing. The Fed hired BlackRock Inc. to purchase these securities and handle the administration of the SPVs on behalf of the owner, the Treasury.

    One may love democracy, and one might also love freedom, but it is a leap to assume they are particularly compatible. Yet people in democratic societies usually do so. As this mytic belief in democracy has taken the place of religion so to has it has devalued the coin of freedom.

      The standard riposte, James. 🙂
      No less true for a that.

        Since the Blair years democracy has become a tyranny of the minorities over the majority.
