Comments on the Current U.S. Budget Debate
The assumptions underlying the current budget debate are erroneous….
It is only after the deficit begins to expand again that the economy recovers. The historical correlation is 100%….
Contrary to general perception, fiat money is driven by the fact that taxpayers need the government’s money to pay their taxes. … so it can obtain the real goods and services it desires via the spending of its currency.
…. Treasury spending is a reserve add. Selling securities, by the Fed or Treasury, is simply a reserve drain, a monetary operation. This underlies the empirical evidence that nations can run any debt ratios they want, in their own fiat currencies, and still “fund the debt.”
How large a deficit is prudent? …., the government could offer a job to anyone who wanted one, at some minimum rate of pay deemed appropriate, and let the deficit float. This would end unemployment and unemployment compensation, eliminate the need for minimum wage laws, and promote price stability,…
The Federal debt is all the money spent but not taxed. …
The current budget debate is based on erroneous assumptions. Washington does not understand fiat money. Until it does, efforts to reduce the deficit will continue, and the economy will continue to underperform.

I’ve come to the conclusion that America today is the living manifestation of “Universe 25”. Russia is not. Unless we change course, and get back to basics, we’re screwed. Russia wins by default—meaning that they’re not even trying to win. We’re just losing on our own.
One thing I am grateful for is how the US war on Russia has revealed fully the cowardly and treacherous nature of the Labour Party leftists. Here’s Ian Lavery, a former miner, pledging his loyalty to US imperialism and thus betraying the miners of Donbas who were the first to to resist the 2014 fascist coup sponsored by US imperialism. Lavery is treacherous swine, worse than any Tory because he is able use his working class credentials to serve imperialism behind a veneer of leftist language. https://shop.thecommunists.org/product/neo-nazi-natos-proxy-war-against-russia/ The real story of Ukraine is much darker, and detailed here. Get hold of a copy.

There are still no adequate explanations about 9/11. Al-Qaeda never had the sophistication to plan and carry out such a complex operation by itself. How is it that only a decade after 9/11, the US would cooperate with Al-Qaeda in both Libya and Syria. It doesn’t make sense.

“Look, I just gave him the gun, taught him how to use it, told him where they lived, gave them a picture and told him what time person who got killed would be home, but I had nothing to do with the murder.”
Canada spent $347 million (in 2011 dollars) to participate in NATO’s destruction of Libya. Canada is spending a paltry $5 million (in 2023 dollars) to aid Libyans in their moment of dire need. That, in a nutshell, is the “rules-based international order”. #cdnpoli #Libya
The US Government has no sanctions left to “Punish” North Korea with if it sends weapons to Russia, They have instead threatened to open a U.S. Embassy in Pyongyang, with Victoria Nuland as Ambassador.
My family’s lineage traces back to Scottish-Irish immigrants who arrived on American shores in the 17th century. My relatives have fought honorably in every American war since the Revolution. My Grandfather flew with Eddie Rickenbacker in WW1, and one Uncle fought Nazis in Europe. Fighting Germans is a tradition in my family. Don’t let my last name confuse you, Soi Boi…I’m as American as one can get. And while I advocate for peace, I won’t hesitate to fight. Like I said…kicking the crap out of Germans runs in my blood.
German authorities forbid media to talk about a huge anti-NATO protest in Magdeburg.
Germans are protesting against the country’s pro-NATO policy, the supply of weapons to Ukraine and the restriction of civil liberties.
The largest protest action of this year in Germany is taking place in Magdeburg today, with the number of participants, according to various estimates, ranging from 20,000 to 80,000 participants.
The entire square and surrounding streets are filled with peaceful protesters. The stands of the German aKiZ “Alley of Angels” and “Children Need Peace” attracted the attention of many people, they carefully examine photos of children who died due to NATO wars, including in Ukraine.
Here is what the opposition German publications write: “The state media will say that a hundred far-right Putinists have gathered. But we see that many thousands of thinking Germans have gathered in Magdeburg!”
But it will no longer be possible to hide information. Hundreds of videos and photos from the event have been posted on social networks.

The Ukraine war has revealed that Western “values” — US and European — are a mere façade. What we want is to give orders to others, reestablish colonialism all over the planet. Democracy and human rights are values that we do not practice at home.
Russian rescuers in Libya Earlier, the country experienced a flood of terrifying proportions. According to the latest data, about 11 thousand people died as a result of the disaster and several thousand more are listed as missing. On behalf of Vladimir Putin, several planes with rescuers, doctors and airborne hospitals were sent to Libya.
Today the third special flight from Russia arrived in Libya.

MUAMMAR GADDAFI’S, LIBYA ‘S FORMER PRESIDENT, LAST FORMAL SPEECH.
“In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful… For 40 years, or was it longer, I can’t remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food. I I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Ronald Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child. Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.
I did all I could to help people Understand the concept of real democracy, where people’s committees ran our country. But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were they wanted more. They told Americans and other visitors, that they needed “democracy” and “freedom” never realizing it was a cut throat system, where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those words, never realizing that in America, there was no free medicine, no free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food, except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup.
No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we’ve had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people, it was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination – from thieves who would steal from us.
Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history, my little African son, Obama wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called “capitalism” ,but all of us in the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the people suffer.
So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die by following His path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters.
I do not wish to die, but if it comes to that, to save this land, my people, all the thousands who are all my children, then so be it.
Let this testament be my voice to the world, that I stood up to crusader attacks of NATO, stood up to cruelty, stoop up to betrayal, stood up to the West and its colonialist ambitions, and that I stood with my African brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon of light.
When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in a tent. I never forgot my youth in Sirte, I did not spend our national treasury foolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader, who rescued Jerusalem for Islam, I took little for myself…
In the West, some have called me “mad”, “crazy”, but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know that our land is independent and free, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been clear and for my people and that I will fight to my last breath to keep us free, may Allah almighty help us to remain faithful and free.”

The President of Lithuania did not know that his wife worked as a war correspondent in Donbass. A scandal in the Lithuanian government threatens to result in the resignation of President Gitanas Nauseda. As local journalists learned, his wife Dalia Nauseda has been running an anonymous military blog on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic since 2018, in which she supports the desire of the people of this republic to become part of Russia. The reason for the scandal was an article published in the newspaper Lietuvos rusofobas, which published more than 20 photos of the wife of the President of Lithuania with the leaders of the DNR and LNR, as well as military intelligence officers and PMC “Wagner” fighters. The authors of the article claim that Dalia Nauseda is the only author of the anonymous telegram channel “OD SLOBODY pre DNR! Z”, which informs about military activities on the territory of the republic. The channel has more than 20,000 followers and regularly collects funds for the purchase of quadcopters for DNR fighters and humanitarian aid for the people of Donetsk. The Lithuanian president said he did not know about his wife’s hobbies and is sure she is traveling to Brussels on business.
The good thing about this European Council of Foreign Relations article is that it says the quiet parts out loud: https://ecfr.eu/article/the-end-of-germanys-china-illusion/
For instance it describes how the German government will “need to weigh up whether Chinese electric vehicles should be regarded as a threat to German competitiveness and deploy anti-subsidy measures, as suggested by European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen.” => Everyone who was paying attention knew this already but it confirms the subsidies excuse is just that, a bullshit excuse. The fundamental reason is to prevent stronger competitors from getting in the market, which they hilariously describe as protecting “German competitiveness” when it’s exactly the contrary, it’s protecting Germany’s lack of competitiveness! And hampering it from getting better, which is what happens when you distort competition (the Chinese car industry got so strong BECAUSE it welcomes foreign car companies in its market!).
Other example, the article says Germany “will require a decent narrative to justify ripping out freshly installed Chinese telecommunications kit from 5G networks”. Again proving the decision is taken for unspeakable purposes (like maybe pleasing the Americans) and you need to bullshit the public about it…
All in all, you’d have thought the “European Council of Foreign Relations” would be a bit more thoughtful than this. The article doesn’t even make logical sense. It starts out by describing how Germany has been “a massive beneficiary of China’s economic development” but because of “the new global economic reality – in which geopolitics is back with a vengeance” (they don’t go into too much details on what they mean by this…) it needs to say goodbye to this and find all sorts of excuses to justify it
Let’s just say that the depth of the strategic thinking here is quite reflective of Europe today: dumb and dumber.

I’ve been making this point from the start. The U.S. will burn through a Brigade every 2-3 days. The entire deployed force in Europe would be depleted in less than two weeks, assuming we can keep them supplied with fuel and ammunition, which we can’t. A war in Europe is suicidal.
As UN rapporteur I issued press releases on world democracy day 15 September. Today I continue to denounce the democracy deficits in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, etc. We live in a Brave New World of cognitive dissonance.

Lavrov: no matter what the United States says, they are managing the war in Ukraine, supplying weapons, ammunition, intelligence – they are waging a war against us.
Wow this is even better, the author of this demented article , Janka Oertel, is running as a candidate for the EU parliament, with the German Green party (of course)…
Which is immensely ironical because check out what she writes in the article: “German decision-makers will have to consider whether they should reduce their dependence on Chinese green technology products because that enhances autonomy, is good for German industry, and prevents complicity in human rights violations – even if that comes at the cost of temporarily slowing down the green transition.
” Literally: we should prioritize the new cold war on China over the green transition. And she’s running on a Green ticket!
Absolutely unreal but that’s the German Green party for you

The statement by the Poltava military commissar that the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost 80-90% of those recruited last fall caused a lot of noise. When Ukrainians learn the whole truth about this war, many heroes and idols will become traitors/enemies. It is already clear to everyone that many functionaries of the Office of the President make money from blood, and the mobilization of the sick is a necessary measure, since there are simply no healthy people left in the country. Now information about losses has become public, and the figure of 80% seems simply catastrophic, but that is the reality of war.
The realities of the war are that the Ukrainian army of the USA and NATO will simply be destroyed, no matter how much more cannon fodder the Ukrainian Nazis send to slaughter. https://t.me/vicktop55/17086
The consensus among policymakers in Washington is to push for endless conflict, no matter how many Ukrainians die in the process. As long as Russia loses men and material, the effect on Ukraine is irrelevant.
Ukrainian victory was never the goal....

On this day in 1939, the Soviet Union joined Hitler’s invasion of Poland in line with the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. This alliance destroyed the continent, brutally killing and subjugating millions. For many of us, the end of WW2 did not bring an end to Soviet terror.

Warren Mosler Plan A + Plan B
Economist Warren Mosler describes his solution to the Italian / EU crisis in terms of Plan A and Plan B
Foundations of Modern Monetary Theory
- ? Warren Mosler is the founding father of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), an increasingly popular but controversial theory on money, currency, and unemployment.
- ? MMT is a full theory of macroeconomics that covers various aspects such as money, taxes, unemployment, and inflation.
- ?ﾸﾏ The tax liability is the basis behind the whole system of government provisioning, as it provides the means for the government to transfer real goods and services from the private to public domains.
- ? Mainstream economic theories lack a clear explanation of where the price level comes from, while MMT provides a framework that identifies the government as the determinant of inflation and price level changes.
- ? According to Warren Mosler, in Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), the only two things people can do with money is either pay taxes or save it.
- ? The two reasons for the economy at the macro level are to pay taxes or to save, and the net financial assets in the economy are the dollars spent by the government that have not yet been used to pay taxes.
- ? “You want to start a government from scratch start with the tax liability because that will give your currency value.”
- ? MMT is a framework for analyzing the monetary system, not a policy, and understanding it can prevent damage to the population.
Implications and Applications of Modern Monetary Theory
- ? The concept of a job guarantee, where there are always available jobs that pay in a specific currency, can help prevent inflation and provide stability in the economy.
- ? Unemployment is a significant loss of real wealth, with the losses from unemployment in one year potentially surpassing the losses from all wars in history combined.
- ? “You want to have maximum output and the first thing you do is you gotta have everybody working to get maximum output, anybody not working represents a lost output.”
