"For The Sake Of Capitalism, Pepper Spray Davos"

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Yra Harris just posted a blistering critique of the crony capitalist crooks congregating in Davos. The first few paragraphs of his post, For the Sake of Capitalism, Pepper Spray Davos, are a must read.

Enjoy.

Please, PEPPER SPRAY ALL THE ATTENDEES OF DAVOS in order to halt the rape of taxpayers and consumers across the globe. This annual conclave is responsible for more wealth destruction and the widening disparity in GINI coefficients than any public policy. I believe that the cost of attending Davos is priced at such an extravagant rate because it is a giant insider scam. Hobnob with politicians and policy makers in an effort to be part of the “smart money” crowd. It was the great moral philosopher and economist Adam Smith who so presciently noted: “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for the merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.” The conspiracy against the public has been the financial repression of the global middle class in an effort to bail out those who are attached themselves to the public treasury to maintain the “animal spirits” of crony capitalism.

 

The cost of an entrance pass to this private/public  congress of mover and shakers should sound an alarm to all those who desire transparency in financial markets. In contemporizing the words of Adam Smith, Samuel Huntington was credited in the online research cite, Acton Commentary, as creating the phrase DAVOS MAN: “A soulless man, technocratic, nationless and cultureless, severed from reality. The modern economics that undergirded Davos capitalism is equally soulless, a managerial capitalism that reduces economics to mathematics and separates it from human action and human creativity.”

 

Friday’s release of the 2010 FOMC transcripts reveals that Chair Bernanke raised concerns “… about inappropriate access to information by outsiders other than the media, including consultants, market people and so on.” It was earlier revealed that Bernanke had held discussions with ECB President Trichet about the seriousness of the European sovereign debt crisis. The Reuters story post-transcript release–“Fed Helped ECB With Swaps after Trichet ‘Personal Appeal’”–quotes Chairman Bernanke: “Yesterday [ECB Chief] Jean-Claude Trichet called me and made what I would characterize as a personal appeal to re-open the swaps that we had before,” Bernanke told his colleagues at the UNSCHEDULED meeting.”

 

In a further analysis by Reuters, the article notes, “The transcripts, which are released after five years, show how closely Bernanke worked with Trichet, who shared ‘highly confidential’ information about the ECB’s part in a trillion-dollar ‘shock and awe’ rescue plan launched by EU leaders to combat an escalating financial crisis in Europe.” Ten months later Chairman Bernanke is openly warning FOMC members about leaks from its meetings. Curious about how much the DAVOScrowd made from the whispers emanating from the Fed Board Room? It costs more than $600,000 to be a strategic partner at Davos and be allowed into the most high-level meetings with the most important CEOs and policy makers. But if the inside scoop is info beyond the ears of mere mortals PRICE IS NO OBJECT BUT INSIDER PROFITS CERTAINLY ARE. More pepper spray to stop the rapes.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Of course Jon Stewart said it pretty brilliantly last year…

If they all weren't so special, they'd be worried...

Instead of Davos, the World Economic Forum should’ve been held where it belongs – in Raqqa.  ;-)

That would be the best thing that could happen to the world... if that building caught fire trapping all the attendees inside.

I wonder how many special closed sessions on internet control there will be.

Pepper spray!?!?

Try something they will not recover from (as in never regain conciousness)

Speaking from a point of experience here, as someone who has recieved a full face exposure to OC pepper spray, it fuckin' sucks. It is miserable. The best way Ive heard it described is "bobbing for french fries" and that is accurate. Its been a looong time since Ive had it done, and just the smell alone is instantly recognizable to anyone who has had that done. That said, it doesn't last that long. Depending on the person, 15 minutes to an hour(rarely that long) and you are fine. Based on the damage these people have done to other humans and the world itself, pepper spray is letting them off much to easily.

 

As Ive said before, I think perhaps the most miserable existence on this planet is to be a 'shipbreaker' in Alang, India. Very dangerous, and paid what are essentially starvation wages. Thats what Id like for these people.

If only we could get the rapefugees to rape Davos attendees instead of Swedish and German girls.

How many people of color are in Davos?  O was invited but they told him he could only use the servants' entrance.

I can't decide what I'd rather see ... a tactical nuke? (POOF - ALL gone) .... or a light dusting of mustard gas, followed by a sprinkling of cluster bombs, and finally topped off with a GBU-43 MOAB? ... (much more entertaining)  Seems only fitting - after all, these weapons are their creations, shouldn't they get to experience them?

Gregory Abbott, Governor of Texas,

Don't like seeing that name on the list...

Me either, I am forced to admit the truth. All professional politicians are corrupt.

nuubee's picture

oh, jesus...

 

"The speed, scale and systemic nature of this transformation has the potential to disrupt all sectors and call into question the essence of human nature and identity. The purpose of our Meeting this year is to build a shared understanding of this change, which is essential if we are to shape our collective future in a way that reflects ultimately that the human being should be at the centre," said Professor Schwab.

 

So, yeah, those guys really do sound like all they want is central control of human innovation.

Is it okay to use the word "psychopath" in this case?

Nubee - Meanwhile during cocktail hour a discussion:

"So John, what country is the safest if WW3 heats up?"

"Well Mike, we are heading to New Zealand."

Or even Rio.

I hope they remain unconcerned for just a little longer.

Send in an "errant drone".

Failing that, do a Jason Bourne move: natgas leak and a magazine stuffed into a toaster.

Krugman would come in his pants, with all the "broken window" economy.  So would the hotel's competitors.

Nuke it.  It's the only way to be sure.

Di Caprio and Trudeau jr. are there! 2 of the brightest of our time!

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

It's got nothing to do with the "brightest", but everything to do with PR faces for the Agenda.

That's a better idea for these special people.

If there is a WWIII and these special people hide in the southern hemisphere their just as dead. Because at that point their money doesn't matter. It's survival of the fittest. If I were a bodyguard I would instantly think there are more resources (Food, drink, etc) with one less person.

I wonder if Davos is a gun-free zone. No? I wonder why not.

Sadly neither actually kill.  Perhaps one of the VX family is more siuted to your purpose?

this year, according to rumors, the attendees of Davos will perpertrate a false flag on themselves.

they plan to turn over control of the conference to operatives who look like poor people.  the attendees will appear to have been kidnapped.  they will look angry and say nasty things about the rich.  and even though they might lose a few in the theatrics, it was decided this would be a great PR move and worth the effort.

For the sake of HUMANITY, NUKE Davos.

Fixed it.

@ Dr. Spin: 

Mustard gas? I'd rather use bullets. 

Bay Area Guy's picture

Neutron bomb the place. I'd say nuke it, but the surroundings are too pretty to destroy.

drendebe10's picture

Sandpaper the skin off of all the attendees, bury them in salt then throw them all out in the middle of an iranian desert with a can of Pennzoil.... there, fixed it...

Gitmo.

They're terrorists.

dirty bomb and daisy cutters to take out their bunkers

Baa baa's picture

Is the "Daisy Cutter" the one that uses vaporized gasoline? If so, it does provide a certain symmetry.

J Jason Djfmam's picture

You are thinking of the fuel-air bomb.

Biggest bang short of a nuke.

Daisy cutter's a shrapnel laden XL conventional bomb.

Hence the Daisy Cutter nickname.

It will mow the lawn.

Don't be an a-hole.  The area is way to nice to do that.  

It doesn't sound like you're the "Ideas" guy.

Pepper spray is not strong enough.

Magnum's picture

All the Davos attendees are protected by guys wearing masks carrying machine guns on rooftops. They don't trust anyone, including the people they represent.

semperfi's picture

and more - they aren't stupid - they probably privately announced that they have dead man fuzing contraptions of various sorts all over the place

PTR's picture

In "represent," I hope you weren't referring to the masses, because they certainly don't represent that group in any way other than lip service.

Ghordius's picture

no, as far as I am informed it's the Swiss military that protects the whole Davos circus. that's regular guys serving their yearly spell in the militia that Switzerland still boasts, complete with conscription

frankly, I find both circuses distasteful, the Davos inner one and the one ouside

once, Davos was simpler. it was only economy. then... politicians started to flock there. I would prefer to ban politicians to go there. it's their presence that is wrong, imho

Money breeds power and power breeds moar money concentration.

That in essence is Davos; new elitist Versailles of the "happy few" outside the walls of nation-state control.

Since when was Davos supposed to be anything else ?

It got kickstarted bigtime when Voelcker went there to explain in 1980 how he had "saved" the world and banking by killing the hyper-inflation dragon that was threatening the eurodollar banks drowning in malinvestment recycling of petrodollars to EM like Mehico & Brazil; in what was then called "Crash of 1979"; as oil went to 36$/bbl making the creditor/debitor divide between producer/consumer spike beyond control to fEED salaried inflation.

Davos kicked off that great monetary experiment we call neo-liberal Reaganomics... a name that says it all : Political Power and monetary hegemony to fuel the WS pump.

So since 1980 its been the name of the game that made its fame and created the 1% class.
