Hillary: Deceit, Debt, & Delusions (Part 2)

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

In Part One of this article I addressed the deceit of Hillary Clinton and politicians of all stripes as they promise goodies they can never pay for, in order to buy votes and expand their power and control over our lives.

I created the chart below for an article I wrote in 2011 when the national debt stood at $14.8 trillion, with my projection of its growth over the next eight years. I predicted the national debt would reach $20 trillion in 2016 and was ridiculed by arrogant Keynesians who guaranteed their “stimulus” (aka pork) would supercharge the economy and result in huge tax inflows and drastically reduced deficits. As of today, the national debt stands at $19.7 trillion and is poised to reach $20 trillion by the time “The Hope & Change Savior” leaves office on January 20, 2017. I guess I wasn’t really a crazed pessimist after all. I guarantee the debt will reach $25 trillion by the end of the next presidential term, unless the Ponzi scheme collapses into financial depression and World War 3 (a strong probability).

The total disregard for the most perilous issue confronting the nation by politicians of all stripes is a national disgrace, proving beyond a doubt the elite ruling class has no conscience, no sense of morality, and no loyalty to the common people or future generations. The sociopaths who act as if they are in control addressed the 2008 global debt meltdown by adding tens of trillions in new debt to an already unsustainable system, setting the world on a course towards total financial collapse and world war.

There is no denying Wall Street, through the greatest control fraud in history, purposely generated trillions in bad mortgage products, bundled them in packages of indecipherable derivatives, bribed and threatened the rating agencies for fake AAA ratings, sold them to unsuspecting clients, while simultaneously shorting them, and proceeded to destroy the global financial system in the process.

The national debt at the outset of this crisis was $10 trillion, with total US credit market debt of $54.5 trillion. The debt was too damned high. A massive deleveraging needed to take place, wiping out the bad debt and those banks who gambled and lost. But, those who would have lost were establishment Wall Street bankers, billionaires and politically connected players. The establishment circled the wagons, instructed their puppets at the Federal Reserve to do whatever necessary to save Wall Street, rolled out trillions of Keynesian claptrap spending schemes, and threw Main Street and specifically senior citizens under the bus.

Eight years later the national debt stands at $19.7 trillion and total credit market debt has leaped to over $64 trillion. The Fed has conspired with other central banks around the world (specifically the ECB and JCB) to follow suite, driving global debt to an all-time high of $152 trillion – 225% of a rapidly slowing world GDP. And this doesn’t include the trillions of bad debt within the financial sector, as insolvent banks like Deutsche Bank, all Greek, Italian and Spanish banks, and Citigroup teeter on the edge. Rogoff and Reinhart proved when the debt to GDP ratio in countries exceeds 90%, financial catastrophe isn’t far behind. What does that say about our global economy?

We have the greatest debt bubble in world history and neither presidential candidate thinks it worthy of 30 seconds during two 90 minute debates. Instead they focus on the important stuff like pussy, bimbo eruptions, emails, and mean talk. The proposals of both candidates would turbocharge already skyrocketing deficits. The people of this country should be scared shitless about the debt. But instead they are focused like a laser beam on Kim Kardashian’s latest escapade, twitter wars, facebook pictures of a distant cousin’s toe fungus, and the latest adventures of the Housewives of NY, NJ, OC, or Atlanta.

All honest borrowers know debt must be repaid. The U.S. government is not an honest borrower. With the national debt rising by $2.8 billion per day, one needs to question whether the U.S. government is an honest borrower. With annual deficits guaranteed to exceed $1 trillion per year for as far as the eye can see, how will the debt ever be repaid?

The Keynesian acolytes like Summers, Krugman, Bernanke and Zandi seem to forget Keynes promoted deficit spending during economic downturns, to be offset by surpluses during economic upturns. They are paid well by the establishment to forget. Hazlitt had to deal with superficial men of a similar ilk during his time. They care only for whatever cockamamie economic squandering idea they are paid to sell as the latest government salvation plan. The idiotic ideas never change, only the names of the foolhardy fanboys selling the idiocy to a disinterested and distracted populace.

“There are men regarded today as brilliant economists, who deprecate saving and recommend squandering on a national scale as the way of economic salvation; and when anyone points to what the consequences of these policies will be in the long run, they reply flippantly, as might the prodigal son of a warning father: “In the long run we are all dead.” And such shallow wisecracks pass as devastating epigrams and the ripest wisdom.” ? Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson

These pretentious so called economists always promote some scheme such as Cash for Clunkers, first time home buyer credits, national infrastructure rebuilding, war, and other broken window fallacy programs designed to get something for nothing. They declare haughtily the government can spend without limit and pile up trillions of debt because we owe it to ourselves. These are nothing but falsehoods built upon flawed logic and sold to a gullible public by media mouthpieces, crooked politicians, and dishonest bankers.

An honest man, not beholden to the establishment, like Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, who manages $150 billion, knows a debt bubble when he sees it. The world is approaching the limits of debt expansion. He also understands the issuers of the debt, holders of the debt and taxpayers cannot possibly all be satisfied in the long run. It’s the common working stiff who will be screwed again.

“Debt is fundamentally a liability even though it is treated as an asset by those who “own” it. As a result, holders of debt believe that they are holding an asset that they can sell for money to use to buy things, so they believe that they will have that spending power without having to work. Similarly, retirees expect that they will get the retirement and health care benefits that they were promised without working. So, all of these people expect to get a huge amount of spending power without producing anything. At the same time, workers expect to get spending power that is equal in value to what they are giving. They all can’t be satisfied.”

The Federal Reserve, in their frantic and illegal endeavor to prop up their insolvent benefactors on Wall Street and crooked politicians in Washington D.C., have destroyed the free market system based upon saving, investing, risk, failure and creative destruction. They have created a stagnant zombie economy dependent upon zero bound interest rates and rigged stock markets to maintain the appearance of normalcy.

Their zero interest rate policy has destroyed the lives of millions of senior citizens (with 3.6 million turning 65 every year for the next two decades), guaranteed the bankruptcy of pension plans across the country, and signaled to corporate CEOs that it is smarter to borrow billions and buyback their stock than to invest in capital, equipment or people. They have sapped the life out of the real economy, making it impossible to ever achieve 3% GDP growth again. The wave of Boomers retiring will be an anchor as former providers of taxes become users of healthcare and pension benefits.

The national debt is poised to reach $25 trillion by the end of the next presidential term. This would push the debt to GDP to 120%, up from 106% today. Remember, when this level has exceeded 90% throughout history stagnation and economic collapse was not far behind. This brings us back to the so called economic gurus of our time who condescendingly declare Japan’s debt to GDP ratio of 230% as proof deficits and debt don’t matter.

They fail to mention Japan has been in a three decade long recessionary death spiral with their stock market is still 57% below its 1990 peak. The predictable nonsense emanating from bloviating windbags for the establishment about the ever growing jenga tower of debt not being an issue is no different than their blather about the fraudulent housing bubble not being a problem in 2005 because it hadn’t burst yet.

The fact is the Fed has artificially suppressed interest rates for the last eight years in a failed attempt to make their warped academic theories work in the real world. Emergency level rates may have been necessary in 2008 and 2009, but keeping them at 0% for eight years reveals their complete capture by Wall Street and the establishment politicos. Now they are trapped. They can never allow free markets to regain control of our economy, as the slightest uptick in rates will now blow the global economy sky high.

The feeble minded politicians that pass for leaders believe the $10 trillion increase in debt since 2008 is no problem because interest on the debt is less today than it was in 2008. For the fiscal year just ended the interest on the debt was a mere $433 billion. That is based on an average interest rate of about 2.3%. The average rate in 2008 was about 4.5%. Ray Dalio, our smart hedge fund manager, points out an inconvenient fact for the mathematically challenged dimwits running this shitshow.

“It would only take a 100 basis point rise in Treasury bond yields to trigger the worst price decline in bonds since the 1981 bond market crash. And since those interest rates are embedded in the pricing of all investment assets that would send them all much lower.”

What the politicians ignoring the 20 trillion pound elephant in the room fail to tell the American public is a 1% increase in the average interest rate would cause interest on the debt to soar to $660 billion, a 52% increase over the FY16 level. A similar increase around the globe would blow a $1.5 trillion hole in governmental budgets. At the end of the next presidential term when the national debt will be $25 trillion or more, a 3.3% average rate across all bond durations would yield annual interest expense of $825 billion, almost double the current level.

Only a brain dead Keynesian, Ivy League educated economist, mainstream media spokesmodel, or bought off political flunky cannot see the inevitable financial Armageddon approaching unless we reverse course now. But there is absolutely no one within the deep state establishment with the moral fiber or courage to stand up and do the right thing. The plan seems to be to pretend the debt is not a problem, increase taxes and use the most vicious form of taxation – hidden inflation on those least able to pay – to make the unpayable debt less burdensome and screw the bondholders with guaranteed losses. Hazlitt had their number 70 years ago.

“Here we shall have to say simply that all government expenditures must eventually be paid out of the proceeds of taxation; that inflation itself is merely a form, and a particularly vicious form, of taxation. It is perhaps the worst possible form, which usually bears hardest on those least able to pay.” ? Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson

Politicians and central bankers play both sides of the fence when lying about inflation. Bernanke and Yellen have set a magical level of 2% inflation, which is somehow supposed to promote full employment and stable prices. Why 2%? Why not 1.8956723%? It’s just as outlandish in its conception. Over the last eight years we’ve listened to these highly educated boobs lie about raising rates as soon as inflation hit 2% or when unemployment dropped to 6.5%.

Inflation has been over 2% during these eight years and according to the BLS bullshit spreaders, unemployment is currently 5% – still no rate increase. We are lost in a blizzard of Fed lies. They are now trapped by their own lies. Normalization of interest rates will never ever happen. Negative real rates have been in effect and negative nominal rates are in our future. How Yellen and her fellow banker cronies sleep at night knowing they have destroyed and continue to destroy the lives of senior citizens, the middle class and the millennial generation is beyond me.

Here’s the game being played behind the curtain, never to be revealed by Hillary, Yellen, the captured dying legacy media, or anyone beholden to the establishment for their paycheck or bribe:

(1) You keep the lower classes trapped in ghettos, dependent upon welfare scraps provided by the state for their sustenance.


(2) You keep the masses dumbed down and socially stunted through government indoctrination in public schools.


(3) You tax the working class heavily while convincing them piling up consumer debt is the path to happiness.


(4) You bastardize, manipulate and fraudulently reduce the reported level of inflation in order to screw senior citizens out of their Social Security benefits.


(5) You run up the national debt to astronomical levels while making $200 trillion of unfunded welfare promises to future generations.


(6) Since the debt is unpayable, you generate man made real inflation exceeding 5% per year in order to inflate away the debt.


(7) You never speak of this plan while paying your media mouthpieces to distract the populace with electronic bread & circuses.


(8) As a last resort you start World War III to divert attention away from your traitorous actions.

As we come down the home stretch of this election, the stakes have never been higher. The future of the country is at stake. Do we believe in liberty? Do we believe in the truth? Do we care whether this country survives the next decade? Do we care about future generations? Then it’s time to stand up and be heard. It’s time to fight. It’s time for the putrid, corrupt, evil establishment to be eradicated like filthy roaches in your basement. Hazlitt sums it up nicely:

“The times call for courage. The times call for hard work. But if the demands are high, it is because the stakes are even higher. They are nothing less than the future of liberty, which means the future of civilization.”

In Part Three of this article I will dismantle Hillary Clinton’s pie in the sky delusional economic proposals with facts, logic, and a cold dose of reality. Feeble minded mathematically deficient ideologues need not read it. Their heads would explode.

If you're worried about the economy, then elect Hillary. She has a 100-day jobs plan that is verified by top economists from around the world. It focuses on bolstering our infrastructure and making America the green energy capital of the world, and is expected to produce millions of jobs and grow our economy by billions of dollars.

There is literally nobody on the planet better suited to lead the planet than Dear Leader Hillary. It took her under 9 months to kill Muammar Qaddaffi. She will kill Assad in about the same amount of time, and Putin should be even easier since Dear Leader Hillary has the will and strength to use tactical nukes. Give her one year, and Dear Leader Hillary will literally make the world safe again by turning Damascus and Moscow into steaming glow-in-the-dark turd buckets. Hail Dear Leader Hillary! Hail Baal-Hassem!

Wow.  Someone out there is actually trying to look like MDB?  Wait a minute...  Is this you MDB?

Also remember that fiat can never pay away all of fiat debt because more fiat would have to be created to do so which increases the debt.

Can we increase debt on debt fast enough to make a loop in the graph?

Parabolic trends are so 20th century

What can go wrong...AAA rated by 2/3 big rating agencies...DOJ keeps things in line e.g. AAA MBS bank fines...

Not a peep from let me think...hmmmm...has not been in any news lately...hmmmm...can't recall that other troublemaker rating agency that downgraded U.S. debt 4 or 5 times...you know...the one threatened and sanctioned for one year after last downgrade...what...3-4 years ago...EGAN-JONES

Then there is Weiss ratings...U.S. debt just above JUNK. To small and not much publicity...

Trump does not need to talk about debt...as he once said U.S. bond holders should expect losses.

People better fucking stop replying to BOTH of them or the comments section is done.

It is already like picking through shit looking for peanuts due to the upcoming (s)election.

And to think Francis gets banned 35 times (and Francis, when you come back, keep it low, tough keeping track of who you are) yet MDB and all the clones can fuck up every single thread.  Has to be money involved.

The correlation between regular posters and their consistent hierarchy in the queue says the system has been gamed for years.

My friend, MDB is satire second only to Jonathan Swift. He's brilliant.

replaceme's picture

Once in a while he actually makes me mad; that's when I really know he's on a roll. I almost laughed out loud at the tactical nukes reply; pure, satirical genius.

bobsmith5's picture

Are we therefore to assume that his entire website is devoted to satire too?   I think not, satirist do not create entire websites to express their views.  There are people out there who think exactly like MDB and sincerely mean every word of it.  As hard as it is for people to believe it there is no question that MDB is real.

Stranger_in_a_Strange_Land's picture

Personally, I think MDB does a favor to show you what too many people actually believe.  MDB regurgitates it perfectly...it's for effect, almost satire and I'm pretty sure that's the point.

Check it out...it's a real phenomenon.  Scary and laughable at the same time.



"Hillary Clinton's plans for the economy would boost growth and create millions of jobs, according to a new analysis."


"A 100-days jobs plan: Break through Washington gridlock to make the boldest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II.

And she will make the U.S. the clean energy superpower of the world—with half a billion solar panels installed by the end of her first term and enough clean, renewable energy to power every home in America within 10 years of her taking office."

Hillary's own words:

"This country of ours, this system of ours, the rule of law...created the biggest engine of economic growth in the world...but we should not and we will not respect those who get rich by cheating everybody else."


Serious delusions abound.  In 10 years, Hillary will personally ensure every home is powered by solar.  How?  Who the hell knows, but she'll do it!  Her own words about 'rule of law' and 'not respecting those who get rich by cheating other' is definitely a laugh coming from her.  I also remember that current Prez talking about 'rule of law' promises, 'return to Constitution,' back in his campaign.  Funny how that promise turned into writing secret laws and secret kill lists to merely make extrajudicial killing, lying and such 'legal' now...because Executive says so.

Yeah, and that Devil-pig bitch also probably has a bridge for sale, somewhere....why not, since everything is for sale, in the minds of the Clintons.

MDB ...

Every single thought you and the "HEAD" despot with a reprobate mind (CLINTON) propose is at enmity with the GOD of the Bible. 

I feel very sorry for you.

[Eze 7:4 NKJV] 4 My eye will not spare you, Nor will I have pity; But I will repay your ways, And your abominations will be in your midst; Then you shall know that I [am] the LORD!'

And my heart goes out to America and her people ...

[Isa 3:4-5, 12 NKJV] 4 "I will give children [to be] their princes, And babes shall rule over them. 5 The people will be oppressed, Every one by another and every one by his neighbor; The child will be insolent toward the elder, And the base toward the honorable." ... 12 [As for] My people, children [are] their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause [you] to err, And destroy the way of your paths."


Say What Again's picture

On a serious note -- I believe that "debt" is one of the most serious threats to our well being.  Debt Bubbles causes more harm than the terrorists.  More people are affected, and the negative consequences last longer.

Let's Review Why Debt is a Problem by Looking at America's Accomplishments.

Most Americans have never seen a Trillion Dollars visually. So let's review what has transpired under the current DEMOCRATIC executive leadership.

1.) Student Loan Debt - 2 Trillion

2.) America's debt - UP over 100% in 8 years,

3.) America's unfunded liabilities - 150 Trillion plus and climbing rapidly

4.) Corporate Debt - Up over 100% in 8 years.

5.) Bank Derivative Expsosure - Up over 300% in 8 years.

6.) Crime and Violence - Out of Control (Billions in Lost Property, Lives)

7.) America's foreign policy - America now pays ransom to terrorist states like Iran (1,700,000,000)

8.) State and Municiple Pension Shortfall - 6 Trillion plus

9.) Fed Balance Sheet - At 4.5 Trillion - Up Over 400% in 8 years

10.) US Government Cannot Account for 6.5 Trillion in its books.

Well done FED, Mr. Speaker and Mr. Preseident ... Well done!!! Long live "Rules for Radicals" and Central Bankers.

WE ARE ON THE TITANIC AND WE HAVE HIT THE ICEBERG and everyone is more interested in straightening up the deck chairs!!!

"Just one last shot, then I am going to Lexington for the cure."

The cure no longer exists, because the drug of debt has turned lethal. The "patient" (addict) will die from withdrawl unless more debt is added. But the patient will die anyway. That is why our POTUS is named Oblivio.

There is no way out.

Nobody will discuss "The debt" in politics.  It is the real third rail.  

My question for either candidate:

'How, in a finite world, can you have a monetary system that requires YoY (exponential) expansion in order to survive?"

Most folks in the trailer parks can't get beyond simple arithmetic.  Asking them to understand compound interest, or anything with an exponent is too unreasonable.  But they WILL know everything about the Kardashitians

Dolus's picture

Our society has really turned quite sick and stupid. We're happy to talk about raping and pussy grabbing but no one dares to mention the doubling of debt of the Bush era and then again in the Obama era. It needs to double again in another 8 years or the whole thing blows.

It reminds me of the desperately poor who argue over who has the nicer wheels on their decades old import luxury cars, meanwhile their iPhones are ringing because the electrical company is calling to shut off their service.

Went with a friend one Saturday as he traded his Cadillac for a Porsche. On Monday I got a frantic phone call trying to sell me the Porsche before the bank took his house. He was 5 months behind on his payments.

To be fair, he was in a bad car accident some years back and has a steel plate in his head. His decision making has been somewhat erratic ever since.

For those without massive head injuries, I don't know what their excuse is.

JRobby's picture

I believe Trump has spoken to how much debt has been added under Oblivio several times that I witnessed.

$10 trillion

I am talking about WHY we keep adding to the debt, aka keeping up with the exponential funtion.

Sure they will fling turds (you added 10 trillion in debt, no YOU did, no YOU DID!) but they never will they speak about the system.

Your question is spot-on, but the MSM is far too dimwitted to every ask it.  The bigger problem with your question is that you would get the following response / reaction from both candidates or any politician for that matter.

Thank you Jim Quinn, for eloquently describing the anger, frustration, outrage and disbelief, that we have all felt for the last 10 years.

Tell me something I don't know; hell, this shit could have been written in 2008 with only the numbers changed. But no, a clueless white, very liberal, suburban crowd of affluent upper middle income "useful idiots" cast their vote for the "black guy" because of guilt and the fact their midnset was it couldn't get any worse than Bush. "How's that shit lookin' now?" So, unless you are part of the "free shit" crowd, or you have a vested inteerest in the bribery, graft, & corruption trade the Clintons specialize in, somebody please tell me why anybody with just 1 fucking brain cell working would ever vote for this Cunt? Just how fucking stupid is this country? [Asking the question answers it]

Do you think President McCain or President Romney would have been better?

Fiscally speaking probably not, but there would be a slight chance of better numbers. Foreign policy wise, I have a hard time envisioning anybody doing worse than President Empty Suit; everything he & Cankles touch turns to shit almost immediately. Morally & socially I can't see how America would be any worse than Obama and/or Cankles; both are "race pimps", their specialty dividing groups against one another.



conraddobler's picture

I think people miss the point.

I don't want Hillary to be president and yet she's probably winning the race, mostly due to poor strategy and an opposing candidate who is continually shooting his mouth off and attacking Hillary.

That simply won't work.

As I have said so many times I have lost count, the Clintons are NEVER without a scandal, never!

They live in that world.

Trying to go negative on her is like hitting her direcly on her power up bar, if this were a video game the more you bashed on her the more you'd notice her life bar gaining life.

Trump is crushed with women.

Absolutely crushed.

What I want to know is why the best and brightest minds in his camp can't figure out how to solve that issue?

If they don't solve the woman issue this is all over.  

Attacking Hillary won't work, women get attacked from birth by other women, they assume it's natural, nothing negative you say about Hillary will ever work.

Trump has one issue for women, childcare, and that's not enough.

I think this whole thing is a farce if you have professional campaign staff that you pay millions to then they should figure out what you need to do to attract more votes from women.

So far they are going backwards on this front.

If Trump was found out to be having an affair that would HELP him with women, but making comments about trying to buy a woman off by buying her furniture is what's dooming him.

Not the pussy comment, he just outed himself as extremely shallow, shallow enough to buy a woman, that was BAD!

It's not the language that's pissing women off it's that he tried to whore her out and failed too, that's bad, if he had nailed her then it wouldn't have been as bad.

It was just BAD all the way around.

Women would of said hmmm she went for it, that's juicy, how was he?  etc.

This is so fucking stupid that the fate of the free world hangs on this, but it does.

I'm just waiting for all of these insane asset bubbles to burst and for the S*** to really hit the fan. Starving people aren't going to listen to reason, on the laughable assumption that the hereditary inbred subnormal IQ elite morons (aka Intellectual Yet Idiot classes) can even spell "r-e-a-s-o-n". I'm just going to sit back and enjoy listening to the all of the lame excuses as the status quo criminals are led to the gallows and guillotines.

If you have a strong stomach it should be hilariously entertaining to hear the KKK (Klinton Krime Klan), the Bush Krime Klan, the banking gangsters, the Con Street Swindlers, the crony capitalist conporate criminals, the neoconservative war criminals, the mainstream media & entertainment oligopoly propaganda whores and the various and assorted political parasites all screaming:

* "It wasn't my fault!",

* "But, we were doing God's work!";

* "I tried to stop it!"

* "I'm really one of the people!"

* "I'm innocent!"?

* "I'm a woman of the People!"

* "I was the first black President!"

* "I was against the [Iraq] War after I voted for War!"

* "I never gloated 'We came, We saw, He died' about Qaddafi!"

* "They made me read their lying propaganda on the nightly news every night!"

* "I always knew that everything the government said was all LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES!"

I'm saving my popcorn for the greatest show in world history.
