If there ever was a noble theme to the Olympic games (and this is not altogether clear), there certainly is no longer.

The games have become a giant celebration idolizing the globalist ideals of corporatism, consumerism and leverage. In London, these are embodied in the banking and finance industry.

These Olympic games are opening under the "invigilating" eye of TPTB and the copyright police, to great inconvenience to the ordinary citizens of London, aka LIBORIA.

Coincidently, the citizens of the last two venues are not fairing well this week either. In Beijing they are wondering how so much could be spent on grandiose Olympic facilities when the city's outdated sewage and drainage system contributed to 37 deaths as a result of floods.

In Athens, there is no need to wonder how so much could be squandered on grandiose Olympic facilities that now stand idle, they are all too busy worrying about how they are going to put bread on the table when Greece inevitably defaults.

No matter...let the games begin:

Citius, Altius, Debitum...















The Ancients are running in fear
A banking collapse could be near
They're stretching their loins
Withdrawing their coins
While trying to shield their rear

Funny how the proles never quite grasp who really gets the bill for these monuments to waste.

Then again, I'm a cheap bastard that actually uses a bar of soap until it is no more.

Crazy, huh?

i just love the olympic mascot with one unblinking eye watching you and without feet. Feet, in Daniel's interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's dream, symbolize the last not so great imperial empire of the world-- feet of clay, and of iron mixed together (but they don't mix and it is weak).

Archery was point on-------- uummmm forgeting something WB ?

Rocket launchers and such things that protect the jocks.

Looking forward to more creative "O" lympic coverage as the manufactured drama unfolds...I am sure you will come up with creative themes. 

I won't be watching the Olympics, but will be wathing your posts!!! 

Thanks Bud.

By the way who was that Gerbil?  (Brings nightmare visions to mind)

williambanzai7's picture

The Gerbil is Barroso, the President if the EU.

Did you know that Goebbels was the originator of the idea of the Olympic torch relay?

Joe sure knew how to herd sheeples with symbolism and propaganda.

What a (twisted) guy.

Thanx for the factoid WB7.

Great work as always, sir.  The archery event got me to thinking about George Carlin's ideas for capital punishment.  He had a special place in his heart for bankers:

Nice work again Professor Banzai.

My favorite is the Jesse Owens piece.

The three drones on the 'cover' page are a nice touch as well!

You need to contact Merriam-Webster. I think some of these words need to be added. Invigilating - lol!

I was hoping I was not the only one thinking, what a complete waste of money that the British do not have. What happened to simple games at minimum expense.

And this from Bloomberg: So very, very sad.

WB7: please keep it up (so to speak) wrt your publishing (at least).

"The games have become a giant celebration idolizing the globalist ideals of corporatism, ..."

The games started as a different way to appease the Oligarchs in the various Greek "city-states".  The losers lost, and oh by the way LOST. prestige, money, injury, ...

VDH is quite good on this.

But, excessive celebration at the peon/serf/plebz expense?  Nothing new here tovarich.

Just coincidence or is it, anyone notice when a nation hosts a summer olympics they go broke


76 Montreal took Canada 30 years to pay it off

80 Moscow the fall of communism

84 LA California Broke.

88 Seoul Korea the exception to the rule

92 Barcelona Spain Broke.

96 Atlanta 147% cost over run, US broke.

00 Sydney we all know about their massive housing bubble, soon to be broke.

04 Athens Greece Broke. 

08 Beijing The only country on the list that could afford the games.

12 London and we all know England is broke.

There is a simple reason that can be summed in one word: grandiosity

AldousHuxley's picture

boom then doom


boom during olympic inspired infrastructure spending and olympics are not given to countries whose finance is going down hill but up.


then of course after the party excess comes clean up and paying debt.


olympics is just another stimulation package.


enjoy the show, don't buy anything they advertise....actually those products are exactly the stuff you don't want to buy.


Fruits and Vegetables don't need olympic advertisement (nor they need nutrient labels)...but BigMacs need marketing to get people to eat that unnatural shit sandwich.

old naughty's picture

...76 Montreal, they are still paying for the stadium...

And you have not factor in the untold damages to the environment...wonder what they are using the "nest" for these days?

I didn't mean that thing i said about "not being gut busting funny" the other day. Just in case you were wondering. Now where's that Sandy Weill pic? He reminds me of Robert McNamara who showed his TOTAL WORTHLESSNESS IN THE EYES OF HISTORY when after the Cold War ended he testified before Congress that "he knew that Vietnam had been lost as early as 1965." REALLY???? And "financial supermarkets" (especially illegal one's under ANY condition) "are a bad idea"? REALLY????? Wow. And "Wall Street is total bullshit" too? Wow! That's really phucking COOL, man!

These are pretty good...I like the one where the black sprinter is being chased in the streets by the white British cops.

Man, image if you live in London, or britian, and have to take the train to work while these rich Olympic assholes are in town.  What a pain in the ass.

Hilarious and brilliant and wondrous..Should be mandatory in school syllabus. Even if it wasn't true, you help us to not take ourselves and the world seriously. Do not, under any cost, get swept away in torrential rain!

It fascinates me to no end how technology enables us to account down to one thousandth of a second in a running race but on the other hand it cannot keep track of over one billion dollars that Corzine seemingly lost track of.

Time for black boxes to be installed in all big banks.

Or those Quintillion's of U.S. Dollars missing from the Treasury...

Bernanke must have had (a very large) boating accident...

Whose stolen the Gold medals ?

falak pema's picture

ha ha ha ha, what a crazy world. All it needs is Boris the Oligarchy goof; the king's fool, he does drool like in :

"ladies and gentlement, under this purple tent of millenium gold lies the caves of Britannia's untold wisdom. An age like none other to regale humanity with the tales of Shakespearean poetry jumping the vaults of debt from here to infinity, Montezuma's curse.

Never before have so many owed so much to so few. Ah, our City lights that illuminate the century born in fiat hope and Oligarchy dope of which I your humble servant be the Master of ceremony!

May the games begin like in Olympus of old where men were bold in relating feats untold. Herculus smashes the serpent of one hundred disdainful heads of human doubt and Perseus slays the Gorgon of human treachery singing, rule the City of all derivative dreams. Amen, and goodbye to all that, sweet candle in the wind which goes out once the lights are turned off by my all consuming single word; voice of imperial will. 

I'll be there to sing you a lullaby to tell you we are in insolvent debt forever more.

But why spoil the party when stiff upper lip is soooo British. Tralalal Toot toot and all that! Never complain, never explain, what! 

We've been there before! The last time we had such exciting times in London was when the great fire burnt all and sundry; in 1666!

Drones, cameras, cops. Do they fear the olympic spirit might come visit this time or is it because of the safety of the consumer spirit?
