Skip to comments.Market Strategist: Why Are Our Leaders ‘Trying to Resurrect’ Communism?
Posted on 02/20/2012 2:16:35 PM PST by Carbonsteel
Bob Janjuah, a noted investment strategist for Nomura International, has written an analysis, appropriately titled Bobs World: Monetary Anarchy, wherein he offers his own unique take on the current state of the markets.
Janjuahs report, which first appeared on Zero Hedge, claims that we are in a bubble. Whats worse, according to his analysis, is the fact that the markets have also become so manipulated and rigged by policymakers that its near impossible to predict where things are headed.
He also notes that all over the eurozone, as well as in the U.S., the rule of law has been disregarded for the sake of political expediency. He warns that if this sort of behavior isnt curbed or restrained, there could be long-term sociopolitical repercussions (i.e. the rise of totalitarian states).

Anyone who thinks this isn't by design, hasn't listened to people like Van Jones, Valarie Jarret, Stephen Chu, Dick Trumka, and others associated with this current President.
US Bankers financed Communist take over in Russia. Its easy for the 1% to control the money under Communist.
It basically comes down to the leftist belief that they must control resources so that they can live like kings while we subsist on scraps.
Yes, it was intentional....these cultural Marxists “marched” through and took total control of all our institutions to collapse them. We need to get education out of their hands and teach Classical education—which includes the Moral Virtues that that Socialist Dewey kicked out of American schools.
I am reading CS Lewis who stated in the early 20th century how Tolerance replaced all the Moral Virtues in their schools and was destroying the moral fabric of the English society.
The concept of “Tolerance” as the most important Virtue— forced people (Chamberlain) to tolerate evil acts—and pretend they are not happening and eliminated the earlier teachings of Justice, Courage, Duty, etc. They replaced individual excellence with the collective egalitarianism of Marx. Emotion trumps the intellect and discipline is discouraged-—”feel good, do it”. There is no Right and Wrong in totalitarian states except what the master says.
And now it looks like Putin wants to stimulate the Russian economy by upgrading the entire Russian military. I guess if he does that then we will have to stimulate our economy by spending more on the military. There goes our balanced budget hopes.
The Left does not want prosperity...they want power.
They aspire to the former position.
” And now it looks like Putin wants to stimulate the Russian economy by upgrading the entire Russian military. I guess if he does that then we will have to stimulate our economy by spending more on the military. “
IOW, Reagan-Gorbachev in mirror image....
(And we know how that came out....)
I’m reading Whittaker Chambers’ “Witness,” his partial autobiography and details of his involvement in the US and international Communist parties and the Soviet spy network in the 20s and 30s. He wanted to thoroughly document all of his testimony so the communists could not revise history and accuse him of having fabricated the evidence. In the book (published in 1952), he lays out the entire communist plan to infiltrate and take over education, government, unions, churches and businesses — every institution critical to our long-term survival.
The communist infiltration of many of FDR’s New Deal agencies and the State Department is just astonishing. I suspect it is even worse today, but we don’t have a Eugene McCarthy or HUAC to root out this cancer on our Republic. And the communists effectively shut down the ability to root it out through the “tolerance” taught in “political correctness.”
Again and again I ask myself “why are they doing this”? Is it a naive child-like belief in Utopia by the useful idiots? Is it the ultimate power grab by the elite few? Even Chambers doesn’t address this (and actually says he didn’t have enough room in his 600 page book to address it!).
They want prosperity, for themselves.
The rest of us can go to pot.
That’s why they need the power, so they can do this.
Yes, but that was before Russia discovered lots of oil, and before we spent blood and treasure in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In the 1930s my parents and friends set up a consumers’ coop which eventually bought out the local grocery chain. They were furious and disillsioned when the Communist treasurer stole the treasury. After WWII, my father spent many hours fighting to prevent the Communist takeover of his union on the east coast.
We’re in the midst of a manufactured crisis that was intentional and purposeful.
Why Are Our Leaders Trying to Resurrect Communism?
They are doing so because they are woefully ignorant due to:
1. A VERY inadequate education.
2. Personality development problems resulting from a
dysfunctional/unstable family life.
3. No wholesome religious foundation.
4. A series of sinful choices.
5. An exorbitant amount of influence and/or manipulation
by persons described in #1, 2, 3 or 4.
6. Any combination of the above listed factors.
From one of the posts on TheBlaze— I don’t know what to make of it:
Another quote from a poster there says it all very succinctly:
“The reason our leaders want to resurrect communism is because their bosses, the really rich families, believe the odds of them losing their wealth is much higher in a world where the common people have a say in governance and the economy is based on free market capitalism. They know they cannot control the masses in such a world and fear they may one day end crony capitalism. But if they can set up a supposedly communist/marxist world government where all power is held by a few elites (namely them), then they can control the world and protect their wealth even if it means impoverishing the masses reducing overall wealth.
Because they can and they want to do so.
Marxists only believe in the State not God.
Everyone must be harnessed to the same social-corporate-union-collectivist yoke.
''America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.'' -- Josef Stalin
Oh that’s why the ‘report’ about millions of ‘baby boomers’ having hepatitis C and not knowing it, are coming out.
