Ok, I'm bearish society in general, but this from Ishmael is perhaps a bit further over to one side of the boat... like far enough for it to flood -- Ed


The comments at Tickerforum are full of unbridled optimism, especially on the recent election. Everyone is bubbly and excited for the future, and joy is evident from their words! 

…then the alarm went off and the dream evaporated like common sense does in clown world.

But you know what?  Things can always get worse.  How?  This guest Ticker explores one possibility as pure doom porn, election edition.

Take this one with an entire tin mine.

I don't think the scenario outlined is likely to happen. But if it does, we'll all miss lockdowns, vaccine mandates, $5 gasoline, and peanut butter shortages. 

It'll be a hell of a way for America to go out.

Now that we’re far enough down the screen a human reader won't catch it, the subject of today's doom porn is an Austrian rising in America. You know what I'm talking about.  By the way, everything I say could apply to a woman too.  I just refuse to torture the English language by writing his/her 50 times.

Also for the grammar aficionados out there: this entire thing could be written in future tense, but I don’t like torturing readers either, so I chose present instead.This in no way implies I believe we already have an Austrian among us.  It is simply for clearer communication.

Our resident Austrian is young enough that no one thinks he's going to croak in office. He is good looking enough, but not so much that every man is worried his wife wants to bang him. He is married with 2.8 children. In other words, he looks like Joe Six Pack if he’d made another career decision instead of politics.

Our Austrian is a popular politician. There's no real reason for it, he is just as much of a fuck up as the rest of them. “But he's our fuck up,” his fans say. Whatever he did, it was better than the other guy! 

Little objective thought or observation goes into that statement. Memories are incredibly short when it comes to his many missteps. In other words, instead of beloved policies, he develops a cult of personality.

After the past three years of covid psyops everyone is ready to embrace a leader who will solve The Problem. It doesn't matter what the stated Problem is, or how he intends to solve it, or what the ramifications of the solution are. What matters is enough people fervently believe only he can solve it.

This is one of the biggest existential threats we face as a nation because most of us won't see it coming until we are shoved into a mass grave.

When 10 Joe Americans are asked what Problem our Austrian stated he would solve, the Joes give 15 different answers. When asked what solutions were offered, Joe stares like a deer in the headlights. 

In fact, unless Joe specifically thinks about it, he doesn’t realize our Austrian conveyed no information. It's clown world and being buried under bullshit is par for the course.  

Our Austrian initially plays to all sides in a magnificent fashion. Look what an everyman he is, uniting the people! Yet when you view his actions, they are decidedly slanted. He says a few things most people like, and that is enough to ignore any red flags and concentrate on more pressing matters like rising inflation.

Our Austrian lulls us into complacency. This is incredibly easy. Most of the American electorate is apathetic at best, or single issue voters. His next step is selecting a scapegoat that eliminating will “solve The Problem.”

New laws, prosecutors, and police forces are developed specifically to arrest, convict, and guillotine the scapegoats.  Some of these are purebloods, but most aren’t.  That detail is important later.

His initial scapegoat selection is a popular one and most people support him. If our Austrian rounded up monsters like Emily Oster, Fraudchi, a few biotech CEOs and executed them, I would cheer that shit on. 

The Austrian’s crusade begins as justice. And justice must be served one way or another. Eventually, executions move into the realm of revenge. I'm okay with that, too. There’s half a million people who were murdered in the name of fighting a cold, a few heads rolling is the least compensation we deserve.

And then overnight it happens.  Now the definition of scapegoat expands to include targets of the first monsters killed. Now our Austrian moves to the next phase, blaming a minority for all the problems that remain after the initial scapegoats are gone.

Currently in America there is a convenient minority to target: purebloods. According to statistics, we are about 20% of the population. Our numbers can only increase through births. And many of us are fed up. We are susceptible to someone who offers a solution for the depraved indifference the medical industry showed for covid patients.  The first phases were justice, and now we are lined up.

The odds of our Austrian being on the pureblood side forever are zero. In order to keep his power, he must persecute us in some fashion. This persecution won’t be obviously violent at first. It begins with policies that raise a few red flags, but are never enforced.

Any purebloods who were part of the newly created enforcement arm are fired.  This is one of the only warnings of what’s coming next.

Why is he targeting purebloods? All we wanted was to be left alone.

We purebloods are in possession of the most valuable commodity in the universe: time.  We did not desiccate our organs and immune system. We have more time to live healthy, enjoyable lives.  The walking jabbed do not have this luxury.  Many of them have organ damage.  Organs are always in high demand, and people die on the transplant waiting lists now.  What happens when roughly 3% of the jabbed develop myocarditis?

Their fellow jabbed people do not have suitable organs.  Only purebloods do.  Thus begins the next phase:  rounding us up and harvesting our organs.  Any leader who promises to give dying people more time is lauded as a hero, never mind how many other people he kills.

Think this can't happen? Three years ago you'd have laughed if I said outdoor parks and beaches would be closed for a fucking cold, or that personal medical history must be shared with complete strangers in order to attend a concert.  The same asshole who called public health to rat someone out will call the organ collectors on their neighbor.

People will follow such a leader when they believe only he can get us to the other side of whatever the vaguely stated Problem is. And that makes us all incredibly dangerous, because we create hell as we go.

Note for the binary thinkers out there: This in no way negates my previous guest Ticker against forgiveness.  Not even a little.  I want heads to roll and don’t care much how they do.

Hey, but the Austrian has good hair, nice white teeth and a winning smile, and dresses up well. CNN likes the Austrian. Tuck Chodd, too. Any dislike of the Austrian is, frankly, un-American.

Doubt it will start with organ harvesting. More likely it will be compulsory blood donation. It will apply to everyone equally, but as purebloods have the good stuff they will be required to donate frequently. The damaged jabbed will get medical exemption from donating. No different to compulsory conscription and 4F not getting drafted..

Well... there's a formula and it works. Target a minority group and focus all energy and animosity of the population on them: Kulaks, Jews, merchants, maybe eventually purebloods.

It wouldn't have to progress all the way to old-school executions. Simple restriction of liberties to an exaggerated degree would go a long way.

As far as whether someone who trashed the Constitution could be popular, maybe 100 years ago not. It's definitely possible now (and early stages are happening, although Biden isn't a charismatic leader).

Another thoughtful lone wolf warrior piece.

A figurehead is easy to throw mud at - this lone person who will change everything.

What seems to be missed, in this piece and others written like it, is the lone person can't do anything by him/her self.

They need a willing beurocracy to implement these ideas. They need an organization. And, when the masses become tired of the current salesman, the people take their anger out on the individual, forgetting the apparatus which did the real work.

Once an organization is created, it is very hard to kill. And the organization will gladly feed the masses an occasional person as a sacrifice to keep them from hurting the actual organization.

Many times the beurocracies become so entrenched in our daily lives we can't see continuing forward without them.

We have yet to change this aspect of human nature.

So it was, and so it will be.

Pass the beer nuts...

The problem is most people want to point a finger rather than their thumb when dealing with challenges.

(Spoken with an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent)

Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

Doom porn yes. But my money is on the cashless society forcing this sort of dystopia to grossly steer individual choice and gov't coercion to do crappy things to us...but it occurring in a passive way, IOW, no cattle car trains.

I think Karl's warning to not need to use the healthcare system is true whatever dystopia you suscribe to.

So... a man who loves his country and wants to see it out from the yoke of oppression forced on it by outside forces (Treaty of Versailles), and whom history (written by those same oppressors) misremembers as something quite different to what he actually was? Albeit he certainly had issues, and ran a totalitarian dictatorship... in direct response to the shitty situation he was trying to extricate his country from at the time.

Or do you mean the caricature version of him that was taught in school?

Good luck with that either way though, because the media (including anti-social media) is fully owned by the other side, and they'll never let someone like this rise before the country has already collapsed.

Unless I missed something, one would think that the author is writing about the governor of the state that's known as God's waiting room. I made a post in the comments a few articles ago about the calamity facing Germany and it needing an Austrian corporal to straighten things out. America has some problems that may well turn into catastrophe in the near future. America's economy has been transformed from a manufacturing one to a huge rigged financial casino. A significant percentage of the population has had its health impaired by the jabbing crusade. Our borders are non-existent. A large percentage of the public has lost trust in government due to its inaction on or exacerbation of these problems. When our house of cards economy collapses, people will become desperate.

When people become desperate or fearful, they are more prone to make bad decisions. Couple that with a friendly media behind a candidate and we could well end up with an Austrian. A more highly literate country than ours went down that road and it ended in disaster.

I don't foresee purebloods being forced into organ donation as there are millions of desperately poor Indians and Pakistanis who would sell a kidney or part of a liver. I understand that China makes good use of those subjected to capital punishment. Then again, Americans allowed themselves to be cowed into compliance with a wide scale insufficiently tested jabbing campaign.

@Nymcoy. That scenario of harvesting a percentage of the offspring lasted for centuries in the Ottoman Empire. Regular round up of Slavs to be sent south to the worlds biggest slave market in Constantinople nominal rulers of vassal states sending thousands each year to become janissaries, eunuchs, harem slaves, galley slaves etc. There were entire countries, cities and trade routes from the north such as Crimea or the south such as Zanzibar.
Tomorrow we could be the ones sent each year to be slaves in Chinese owned mines, or just be replacements for the Uighers as living organ donors for ailing CCP members or their local officials of the DNC.

All American politicians are Israel lobby compliant and we won't have an Austrian come to power without their imprimatur. Ron DeSantis is perhaps the most compliant of the politicians.

This version of the Austrian is only about half like the original. Maybe less. Actually he sounds more like a wall-street trained and financed Russian or three from around the same time.

The Austrian is the beginning of the UPSWING from those guys, same as uncle Joe. None if it much higher than rock bottom, but it's still different characters on the way down.

There comes a point when only fire will burn out the rot. We're there, but we're still soggy as hell. No uncles or Austrians yet.

Meh...I agree it's about control but the motivation is wrong. Money and population limitations were a side show.

Don't forget, they tried to eliminate the control population. They didn't believe that they were needed. That means something went wrong.

I think this is fitting for the Austrian outcome opined in this ticker. They seemed concerned about long term damage from the jab, that even PFE is now looking at "studies" to see the effect of heart damage. Looks like the organ damage signals is flashing too bright like a oncoming freight train in a dark tunnel. Lets say our host told us first of the potential effect on the population.

" They'll breed us and harvest our offspring, of course! "
This is a more likely outcome if we divulge into that. And of course to push the tin foil, what happened in West Africa with the slave trade(Africans hunting his neighbor for sale to slave ships) would be widespread worldwide if you are thinking of running to some foreign location. The degree at which it happens might just be different. As money talks, no need for foreigners to do the hunting.
I am obviously just expanding the tin foil thinking, because yes, if any small version of what is in this ticker comes to fruition, we will wish for lockdowns and the like.

I see a Soylent Green scenario is more likely with half the population starving because of the insane policies of the Shitler assclowns and the rest of the loony left. I triple dog dare the maniacs that think they run the country to go down the "harvesting" route. I and plenty of people I know have injecting devises for 7.62 and 5.56 that are just itching to be used when they come this way. The maniacs should be more concerned about retribution from all the people they poisoned with their myocarditis brain damaging clot shot. Hell, all the anarchy these clowns are creating could end up being a lot of fun for people that are good shots.

Since we have our tinfoil hat on today, I posit there will be several Austrian style leaders arise worldwide in the next few years. One in, of all places Austria (or Europe), one in Asia and one in the Middle East. Maybe he or she will be a Berg or a Stein in the ME. One may arise here, but not before Europe. Hardship is coming to Europe in weeks. We still have another several months to a year before it hits here. /TFH

Fun times ahead.

Mass organ harvesting always seems implausible due to the requisite immunosuppressive therapy. There's a reason they don't replace my (useless) pancreas, the anti-rejection regimen is worse.
I would worry more about the figure described in this piece if any of them had an iota of charisma.
I think it's almost more effective having the opposite in place, see the dessicated kiddie sniffer. The machine pushes on with the opposite of a strongman at the front because how could an absent minded, feeble old man forcibly sodomize you?

Interesting 16 tons of tin. What is sad, the ability for this personage to emerge is already in place. The results of the recent election proves the pond is doomed. The entitled class has won. The support of the FSA with a future GBI will rally the FSA troops to do Great Leader's bidding. Desiring to insure "fairness" the FSA shock troops will cause enough chaos for the entitled class to demand something be done. It will not be the FSA who will be blamed. It will be their victims for resisting the "reasonable" demands by the FSA. The ruled will be exploited by the entitled rulling class. There will be no pretense of justice. Just vast killing fields.

Well written, currently improbable absent other factors. We were not bitterly defeated in a war and under an oppressive treaty. These are required for all the current similar variables to fall into place.

DeSantis is an interesting archetype for the model. Just the right level of virility and helps that he has a decently attractive but not very beautiful wife. The American women will not lust over him while at the same time not be too jealous of the wife being that much more attractive than they.

@Radiosity -- good to hear from you again. Excellent points regarding Hitler.

People cannot accept that there are plenty of potential candidates who merely require the correct formula. Properly run societies and cultures naturally control this formula and route these same candidates into more worthwhile pursuits.
