Tempest in a Teapot: The Story of Neoliberal Kristen McQueary and Longing for a Katrina in Chicago

by Scott Creighton

Sometimes the neoliberal apologists for the neoliberal Free-Marketeers go too far.

Sometimes their editors have to erase the little peek they give us inside the minds of the sociopaths who make up the Milton Friedman True Believer class.

Sometimes they have to write unapologetic apologies when civil society reacts with horror at the shear selfishness and cruelty these Ayn Randians harbor deep down inside.

“Envy isn’t a rational response to the upcoming 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

But with Aug. 29 fast approaching and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu making media rounds, including at the Tribune Editorial Board, I find myself wishing for a storm in Chicago — an unpredictable, haughty, devastating swirl of fury. A dramatic levee break. Geysers bursting through manhole covers. A sleeping city, forced onto the rooftops.

That’s what it took to hit the reset button in New Orleans. Chaos. Tragedy. Heartbreak

An underperforming public school system saw a complete makeover. A new schools chief, Paul Vallas, designed a school system with the flexibility of an entrepreneur (privatized). No restrictive mandates from the city (deregulated) or the state. No demands from teacher unions to abide (no labor protections). Instead, he created the nation’s first free-market education system

That’s why I find myself praying for a real storm. That’s why I can relate, metaphorically, to the residents of New Orleans climbing onto their rooftops and begging for help and waving their arms and lurching toward rescue helicopters” original version of Kristen McQueary’s libertarian/neoliberal screed

not so cute sometimes I guess

That’s what happened when cute little libertarian Kristen McQueary penned her latest OpEd for the Chicago Tribune in which she pined away wishing for a Hurricane Katrina to come to Chicago and wash away all that liberal excess so the neoliberal economic hit-men could remake the city into Galt’s Gulch like they did in New Orleans.

It’s called “disaster capitalism” and in the case of New Orleans, it only cost about 1,800 lives and countless people being made homeless. That’s to say nothing of the corrupt, fascist, privatized public education system (the kind promoted by Rahm Emanuel, Jeb Bush and Ron Paul alike) they installed in the wake of the storm which has cost countless futures for countless kids of the poor and working classes of that once great city.

Just for shits and giggles, you guys do understand that the father of modern day charter school ideology was Augusto Pinochet under his Milton Friedman inspired dictatorship, right?

Hillary, the Neoliberal, Globalist, 1% Serving Maniac, Will Announce Today on a Populist Platform

by Scott Creighton

The phony progressives and fake left (a.k.a. the corporate, moderate, just-right-of-Reagan Vichy “left”) are in a breathless tizzy this morning. They are all waiting for Hillary (Killary) Clinton to announce she is running for the White House in 2016 via a social media video she and her staff intend to release today.

Choking back my vomit I am forced to report, incredibly, her platform with be one of a populist revolution for the 99%

You can all take comfort in the fact that this latest project of Killary’s, like all of those in the past and even those she ran as Secretary of State, is designed to make her money and is of course in service to the oligarchs of the new world order she and her husband have served for so very long.

Aside from emailgate and all the other indiscretions of her past (like selling her services as Secretary of State for cold hard cash), her current campaign is already knee-capping itself as if Tonya Harding was running the show which makes you wonder what this 2.5 billion dollar campaign of hers is really about.

Rand Paul Calls for Nation Building – Wants to Give Brutal Kurds Their Own Country

by Scott Creighton

The one thing the libertarians claim sets their policy apart from neoliberalism is “no nation building”. Everything else, privatization, small government, end public education, decimate the social safety net, open borders to hot-money speculators, “free markets”, deregulation of big business on behalf of big business… everything is exactly the same. Just “no nation building”

Well, that’s out the  window.

I would draw new lines for Kurdistan and I would promise them a country,” Rand Paul

Yes, Little Entitled Randie has come forward during a Breitbart News interview and laid out the same plan I speculated on back in Nov. of 2014 and that is the Obama administration is using the brutal Iraqi Kurds against the legitimate uprising in Iraq and in order to get them to do it, they have promised them a new country: Kurdistan.

Here’s how Little Entitled Randie put it;

“I think [the Kurds] would fight like hell if we promised them a country. It’s a little easier to say than it is to actually make it happen, because in order to actually draw a new country, you’d have to have the complicity of Turkey and probably Iraq a little bit as well,” the senator added. “There really is no Syria to be complicit with, but there is just a little piece of Syria — Kobani, and in there is predominantly Kurdish. I think if you did that and could get peace between the Kurds and the Turks, and then the Turks would actually fight if the Kurds would give up any claim to Turkish territory.” Rand Paul

Notice how Randie dismisses the elected Syrian government saying “there is no Syria to be complicit with”

It should be noted that this plan of “anti-establishment outsider” Rand Paul is not only Obama’s plan, but it was also championed back in January of this year by the Vice President of European Parliament.

Ron Paul to Cash in on Neoliberal School Privatization

by Scott Creighton

It’s so nice to see Ron Paul profiting off Bill Clinton’s neoliberal plan of action isn’t it? Nothing says “LIBERTY” like a Slick Willy endorsement. Am I right?

“That’s why I ask my colleagues to appreciate, as well as tolerate, my concern over a public tribute to former President Bill Clinton, who today received the first-ever lifetime achievement award from the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools.

To his credit, Clinton used his Bully Pulpit to tell the American people that charters are good for us. He said he wanted to see 2,000 charters by the end of his administration and indeed growth did occur. The effort he and Congress led to create and grow the public charter grant program helped spur the growthEdreform.com 2011

Our education system is broken by design. They deliberately underfund it and set ridiculous standards so they can undermine the country’s confidence in the public school system in order to push for the wholesale privatization of the entire system and thus set their eyes on the real prize… the billions of dollars annually spent on public education that await them like the fabled pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

And there is no subset of this for-profit education scam like the “online charter” programs for generating massive profits for very little cost. It’s the wave of the future for snake oil salesmen from Maui to Maine.

Little Entitled Randie Goes Full NEOLibtard

by Scott Creighton

Little Entitled Randie, the guy who got into medical school at Duke without a bachelor’s degree because his daddy went there and then later got into the senate because his daddy was in congress, is complaining that someone actually suggested the federal government bailout Detroit before the banksters and technocrats can chop it up and hand it over to the oligarchs for fun and profit.

He screeched “over my dead body” in reference to the suggestion.

After all, the entire point of the demolition of our economy was too facilitate the fire-sale that is going on right now in Detroit and cities like it across the country, so how much sense does it make to bailout Detroit at this final stage of the counter-revolution, the re-feudalization of America?

When asked about all those people living on their pensions in Detroit and what is going to happen to them, Little Entitled Randie simply said “yeah, that’s a problem”

NEWSFLASH – Rand Paul is just another corporatist sycophant looking to feather his nest while suckling up to the country’s financial masters. His “libertarian” ideology is the EXACT SAME THING as the neo-liberal economic shock therapy model used by the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds for decades in other countries across the globe. Only difference is, over there they resisted it, here, the Paulites call it “liberty” Scott Creighton

Obama Administration Backtracks on Drone Policy – Claims They Can’t Kill Citizens on U.S. Soil

by Scott Creighton

It seems Rand Paul’s little filibuster may have had some effect after all. After a day of serious abuse being leveled  at the Obama administration and other dems for failing to support the Paul filibuster, today U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent Rand Paul a short letter which stated:

“It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: ‘Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil? The answer to that question is no.” Eric Holder

Today was filled with all kinds of questions coming out about Rand Paul’s filibuster and the Eric Holder letter which started it all in which he said he thought the president could “under certain circumstances” like another 9/11, use the military drones to take out a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil without any due process of law. Today’s letter is a bit of a turnaround for Mr. Holder. Not much, but a bit.

Eric Holder: Obama Can Kill Citizens in the U.S. with Military Drones

by Scott Creighton

Indefinite detention via the military, endless drone strikes across the world, the economic “Brick” being dropped on the people of the U.S. while Wall Street and corporate profits soar…  and now Eric Holder claims he thinks President Peace Prize can order a MILITARY drone strike against any U.S. citizen here in the continental United States.
