Experts: American capitalism has descended into the abyss of Marxism

  In the 70 years of Soviet power, which precipitously imploded by 1991, Pravda was the No 1 organ of Communist propaganda, only to be closed down along with other Soviet institutions, as the Soviet Uinion came crumbling down in 1991. Another publication, in a popular on-line tabloid format assumed this name popular with the Russians. It has no relation to, no staff, no pedigree from the orginal newspaper with the same name.  Nowadays, there are nearly forty (40) political parties in democratic Russia, most of them represented in the Russian Parliament (Duma).  In this Pravda-printed article about America's descent into Marxism, of a particular interest is the author's observation that American population has been successfully dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system. Never mind its bookish language, pay attention instead to the clarity of the analysis. Eric Ross, PhD

    American capitalism gone with a whimper
by Stanislav Mishin  27.04.2009 
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonald's burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breathtaking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.
Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper.
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this andthe option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Within 48 hours of Obama's Re-election, 48 major Corporations Announce Layoffs

 Posted by Eric Ross, PhD, formerly financial adviser with Smith Barney, Citigroup Global Financial Markets

The facts below are purely of the macro-economic nature (the layoffs) and technical nature, reflecting the market's sentiment in regards to the latest major news, and its likely behavior in response to it in the near future.

Within the past 48 hours after Obama’s re-election, the following companies have announced layoffs:

1. Westinghouse
2. Research in Motion
3. Boeing
4. US Cellular
5. Commerzbank
6. Iberia
7. ING
8. Ericsson
9. Bristol-Myers
10. Corning
11. Boston Scientific
12. Abbott Labs
13. St. Jude
14. Caterpillar
15. CVPH Medical Center
16. Lightyear Haqwker Beechcraft
17. Hawker Beechcraft (also closing facilities)
18. Pepsi
19. Groupon
20. Energizer
21. Lightyear Network Solutions
22. Providence Journal
23. Momentive Performance Materials
24. Gameforge Berlin
25. Vestas Wind Systems
26. Husqvarna
27. SRA International
28. PerkinElmer
29. Majestic Star Casino & Hotel
30. Center for Hospice New York
31. Lower Bucks Hospital
32. Oce North America
33. United Blood Services Gulf
34. Atlantic Lottery Corporation
35. Welch Allyn
36. Dana Holding
37. Stryker
38. Medtronic
39. Smith & Nephew
40. Covidien
41. Kinetic Concepts
42. Hill Rom
43. Darden Restaurants
45. Kroger
46. Alcatel-Lucent
47. Umatilla Chemical
48. Rocketdyne

Layoffs by the small businesses are expected to make an even greater impact on unemployment than the head count cuts by large corporations.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average came crashing the morning after Obama's re-election 313 points on the day, and another 112 points the following day, Thursday. The Dow futures came completely undone at the 13,200 level during the Thursday session. The candle on the Japanese Candle Chart is massive and red; it signifies that we have entered a new down leg in the market. The 13,000 level has been broken significantly, with conviction, and this psychologically important area should now offer upward resistance. There exists no particular reason to see this market rising over time, and we suspect that a downward move to 12,400 is likely. Given the increased risk, we expect market weakness until the US government finds a solution to the “fiscal cliff.”
