The Last Days of the Trumpian Reich

So, according to the corporate media, this is it for Russian-backed Hitler. Game over. The walls are closing in. It’s the last days of the Trumpian Reich. Get those vuvuzelas ready!

Yes, apparently, the American people, who were all a bunch of Putin-worshipping, white-supremacist neo-Nazis when they elected Trump in 2016, have come to their senses and are going to deliver a landslide victory to “Slappy” Joe Biden and bring down the curtain on this “Age of Darkness,” or save the world from “racial Orwellianism” or the “bottomless pit of facsism,” or whatever.

White supremacy will be defeated and globalization will rise from the ashes! Decency will be restored! Love will trump hate! Black lives will matter!

Slappy and Kamala will immediately fly down and liberate the concentration camps. Trump will face some sort of Nuremberg trial, where he will have to answer for mass-murdering six million people with the Coronavirus by taking off his mask on the White House balcony.

Hillary Clinton will be appointed … something.

Exuberant liberals will pour into the streets, chanting unintelligible slogans through their designer masks and plastic head bubbles. OK, sure, the global economy will be ruined, and millions of people will be unemployed, and homeless, or will have needlessly died, so that GloboCap could simulate an apocalyptic global plague, and foment racialized civil unrest, and just generally create an atmosphere of confusion, depression, and paranoia, but the War on Populism will finally be over … and GloboCap will start to “Build Back Better!”

OK, it won’t be “better” right away. As our friends at the World Economic Forum note:

“Thanks to the ongoing pandemic, the world is off-balance – and it will remain so for years to come. Far from settling into a ‘new normal’, we should expect a Covid19 domino effect, triggering further disruptions – positive as well as negative – over the decade ahead. The wave of civil unrest that spread across America and beyond recently may be one example …”

So, all right, maybe not quite the end of the War on Populism, but at least a new stage of it. A chaotic, destructive, violent stage of it, which will require a lot of “emergency measures” and will end up radically transforming the planet into one big pathologized-totalitarian marketplace.

We conspiracy theorists are calling it The Great Reset … but don’t take it from us, take it from TIME magazine, which just happens to be owned by a guy named Marc Benioff, a World Economic Forum Board of Trustees member, whose net worth is approximately $7.8 billion, and who is deeply concerned about the environment, and inclusivity, and economic fairness, as is everyone at the WEF these days.

Fortunately, just by sheer coincidence, this apocalyptic global plague has provided Marc and his billionaire buddies (who own the majority of the corporate media, and who meet once a year in a remote location guarded by heavily-armed security to discuss our future with major government leaders) with an opportunity to “reset” capitalism and save the planet from … well, themselves.

That’s not how they see it, naturally. No, the way they see it, they’re not the problem. The problem is … well, the problem is people. Not rich and powerful people like themselves, or the people they need to continue working, consuming, and servicing the interest on their loans, but … you know, all those other people. Uneducated, un-woke, working-class people. Gun-toting, fanatically religious people. Racist, conspiracy-theorizing people. Deplorable people. “Populist” people. People they don’t need anymore.

These people have been a problem recently. Not only are they a drag on the system, they have been actively interfering with it, voting for Brexit, electing Donald Trump, refusing to abandon their traditional values and outmoded ideas (e.g., national sovereignty, freedom of speech, and mammalian biology) and get on board with global capitalist ideology, and have been otherwise being a real pain in the ass.

It was one thing when these problem people were mostly black- and brown-skinned people with “extremist” beliefs in faraway countries that most Western consumers couldn’t care less about, because GloboCap could just bomb the crap out of them, but they can’t really do that here in the West. Hence, the War on Populism that we have been experiencing for the last four years … and whatever new, dystopian stage of it that awaits us in the post-Trump future.

2020 has been a preview of it. The lockdowns, the masks, the “social distancing,” and other so-called “emergency measures,” the Orwellian propaganda, the censorship of dissent, the banning of political protests, the corporate media finally transforming into a full-blown Goebbelsian keyboard instrument, the goon squads raiding people’s homes, the cult-like, totalitarian conformity … it’s just a taste of what’s to come.

This was always in the cards, of course. It was just a matter of time until we got here. The folks at GloboCap are no fools. They know they can’t remake the world into one big happy neo-feudal marketplace without breaking a few proverbial eggs … and not just in those “terrorist” countries, but everywhere, throughout the global capitalist empire. And that is exactly what they intend to do. So, they needed a new official narrative to justify all the broken eggs.

They haven’t settled on an official slogan yet. “The New Normal,” “The Great Reset,” “The Green New Deal” … they’re all just trial balloons at this point. It doesn’t really matter what they call it. It amounts to a new type of totalitarianism. As I noted in my previous column, “[i]t isn’t national totalitarianism, because we’re living in a global capitalist empire, which isn’t ruled by nation-states, but rather, by supranational entities and the global capitalist system itself.” But it is totalitarianism nonetheless.

They aren’t hiding it. They’re spelling it out, not in spittle-flecked Hitlerian speeches, but, clearly, unmistakably, in corporate-speak. Here is Klaus Schwab, Chairman of the WEF:

[T]he world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

I added emphasis for those new to corp-speak. And, for those interested in reading more about Klaus Schwab, Winter Oak has published this disturbing profile, which you can also read on Cory Morningstar’s blog (along with a lot of other censored content).

Sorry … I was supposed to be writing about the final days of the Trumpian Reich, and I got all sidetracked with this GloboCap business. I hope you’ll forgive me for not being able to get all fired up about the election next week. Given everything else that is happening, and everything that has happened over the last four years, I’m just having a little trouble believing that there is any realistic scenario wherein GloboCap lets Trump serve a second term, regardless of who actually wins. So, that kind of takes all the suspense out of it.

Don’t worry, though, I’ll get back on the horse when the post-election rioting begins, and Donald Trump finally goes full-Hitler, declares himself Führer, dissolves the Congress, and orders his legions of Russia-loving white supremacists to start rounding up the Jews, as the corporate media, the fake “left” media, the Intelligence Community, the Democratic Party, fascism experts, Hollywood celebrities, and every hysterical liberal in existence have been promising he would since 2016.

Seriously, if he doesn’t go full-Hitler this time, and start rounding up and mass-murdering somebody, or else order the nuking of the United States and then blow his brains out in his underground bunker, some people are going to have some explaining to do.

    1. It’s like what Anais Nin said: “You cannot save people. You can only love them.” I think of that whenever I despair along the lines of, “What’s the point of telling people the truth, if they won’t use it?” All you can do is put it out there and hope for the best. Thank God for C.J.

  1. Con, I’d say it’s a two-stage process.

    1. Teach them to uncouple their thinking from their feelings.

    2. Educate them.

    Both stages are actively and energetically discouraged today.

  2. Did not get it.
    What are you trying to say?
    What exactly is your message?
    My impression is you turned leftrightleftright and ended where you started…..
    Please enlighten me :)

Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

    The great reset will come – but who needs the masses of people at all? Who needs workers to accumulate more capital than is already extant, when the best places of earth are already sold and bought, when technology needs fewer and fewer workers to produce anything, when it is all about who will survive in the greatets comfort?
    Here is my proposal (again) as it seems to be closer to the truth than anything that is voiced so far:

    Original title was:
    What if..another conspiracy theory based on the current state of the world

    But I think I call it the real great reset….

    The situation of depletion of resources, the threat of global warming and the inability of the planetary resources to bear the demands of an ever increasing population, the unabating increase in wealth of a small group of already immensely wealthy people – all well known and factual – lead to the conclusions by a small group of oligarchs worldwide:

    The planet with the current load of population and their demands is under threat, the present model and mode of production, creating wealth and wealth distribution does neither work nor is it sustainable.

    We have at our demand available all resources and have accumulated wealth sufficient that we control almost all the worlds production

    We with the means that are available to us can radically change the current situation of over-population.

    Therefore we decide:

    The vast majority of the people not of our class is superfluous.

    We do no longer need to increase our wealth with gains based on the debt slavery and production by hired labour

    We substitute any needed labour with AI sufficient to produce what we need for a sustainable life in comparable luxury with non human labour, demanding no food or space.

    We save on energy, free up space for the regrowth of forests und undisturbed wilderness and reduction of CO2 sufficiently to curb global warming to prevent the ecosystem we rely on from collapsing.

    We keep those of the population needed for research into further development of AI so it becomes ever more autonomous, research into diseases threatening the remainder of humanity and research into agricultural projects to with increasing efficiency needing ever less human interference keep food production viable and continuous for the remainders.

    Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? What if talks about overpopulation being a real threat is quite correct – but with different solution not imagined by those not of the oligarch class?


    1. Scary, but sounds a reasonable deduction. Historically there are numerous precedents of ruling classes brutally dispensing with populations they viewed as superfluous to requirements and detrimental to their interests. Why, in dear old Blighty, the Irish famine, the Highland clearances. Millions died/ were displaced and killed themselves in despair.


  4. ‘People they don’t need anymore’.

    That is the crux of the Trump vs globalists dispute. He constantly refers to the jobs outsourced to China, Mexico and the rest of the cheap labour Klondyke countries. Naomi Klein and George Monbiot walked away from the anti globalisation movement to promote the corporate global warming agenda which is every single bit as fake and self serving as the post plandemic Great Reset. The WEF sees the two as fitting hand in glove.

    So do Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Marc Benioff, George Soros, Pierre Omidyar seem like the kind of folks who want to make the world a better place for deplorables everywhere as the WEF promises ? I’m not sure.


  5. a World Economic Forum Board of Trustees member, whose net worth is approximately $7.8 billion, and who is deeply concerned about the environment, and inclusivity, and economic fairness, as is everyone at the WEF these days.

    It’s been some time I didn’t like you any longer. But when I read that, I couldn’t but like you again.


  6. The mainstream media and Big Tech are not even pretending to hide their bias against Trump and for Biden. It is so obvious that it must be intentional. I suspect that it is a performance targeted at a future audience. Trump will be reelected and start WW3, or some other calamity (I believe he is in “the club” and is merely an actor playing a role), and in the aftermath the mainstream media, Big Tech, and the elite oligarchic class in general will have gained credibility by pointing to how they diligently tried to stop this “madman”. Furthermore, everything Trump is meant to stand for – nationalism, borders, “climate change”-denial, patriarchy, capitalism, etc – will have been permanently sullied using the same method that racialism and national aggression was forever discredited by the Hitler script. I can almost see the History Channel programs on the 2030s showing out-of-context clips of Trump Rally speeches from that “dark time”.


  7. I am just hoping that CJ knows it’s Oct. and he wrote this for Halloween to scare people,because it did the job on me. When I read CJ and don’t laugh I should be scared. At least half the people seem to want this new normal, woke,culture that embrace total surveillance of themselves and everything they read or see.
    The China virus is doing the job for the WEF in ways that could have taken them years or decades before. A real time, live test to see how much a government can get away with. Flatten the curve, say what? slow the spread, please lock us down.
    What the fuck has happened to my former Democrat party which is now the establishment party of war and global cap and is in bed with the surveillance state and guess what, that will not end well for them but they are so lusting of power that they will do anything to get rid of orange man. One of my old favorites Christopher Hitchens would probably now be considered a far right wing, neo nazi in this woke culture. Where are all the leftys for free speech?
    This is probably the test case for bill’s pandemic II soon to be coming to a word near you. Except now that they have the delivery system tested this one will be deadly. I mean China could lose 300,000,000 people and still have more to spare.
    The US and Europe lose that and they cease to exist.
    Not a happy time for liberty,free speech, and all those other pesky things in the bill of rights.


  8. No the banksters that inception-ed the mental virus “Covid” are calling it the great reset(as oppose to the Great Virus Hoax of 2020) “conspiracy theorists” are not calling it that. Maybe you work for the world bank if thats what you call their proposed tyranny and fascism no?
    Trump like Biden is just a banking cabal puppet.We do not have a democracy thats just dogma , the fairy story the economic and political monopoly tell the debt slaves.


  9. Very well written, CJ.

    The only thing I would add is that the silver lining to all of this is that the GloboCaps have had to come completely out into the open as a result of Trump winning the 2016 election, and Brexit.

    And as always, sunlight is the ultimate disinfectant. In their case, the sunlight will have the same effect on them as it does to any Vampire, only it will happen in slow motion. So they will have time to wreak a lot of havoc while they are in their death throes.

    But death throes, are still death throes, so the end result will be the same.
