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?

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.

US provoking war with Russia that could result in total destruction: Ron Paul

from Press TV

Former American lawmaker Ron Paul says the United States is provoking a deadly war against Russia that “could result in total destruction” of both countries.

Paul made the remarks in an article published on Thursday, after the US House of Representatives passed a resolution that strongly condemned Russia’s “continuing political, economic, and military aggression” against Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova and the “continuing violation of their sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity.”

The two-time Republican presidential candidate called Resolution 758 “to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever.”

“In fact, the bill was 16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush, if they were capable of such a thing,” he added.

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

Ron Paul on Benghazi – Almost Sorta Gets it Right… til he gets it wrong

by Scott Creighton

According to Ron Paul, it’s all about the “unintended consequences” of partnering with “Radical Islam”

Well, he was doing OK up until that…

“It appears that the Administration scrubbed initial intelligence reports of references to extremist Islamist involvement in the attacks, preferring to craft a lie that the demonstrations were a spontaneous response to an anti-Islamic video that developed into a full-out attack on the US outpost.” Ron Paul

Yes, they did craft a lie about the anti-Islamic video causing a spontaneous uprising in Benghazi. But Ron forgets to remind his audience that the video was crafted by the FBI and one of their informants who was on federal probation a year prior to the Benghazi attacks and somehow it was retooled in order to serve as the pretext for this new uprising. So they “crafted the lie” in advance. That will be an important point in a few minutes. Keep it in mind.

Little Entitled Randie Shows his True Colors… again

by Scott Creighton

Truth finally comes out

No Joy in Paulville Today

This is a pretty worthless article so it will be short.

Surprise! Rand Paul is an establishment hack.(not much of a surprise is it?)

His “libertarian” leanings are nothing more than ideological WMDs designed to make the rebel love the fascist ideology of his oppressors.

For years I have also been pointing out the MANY various “little betrayals” that Rand and Ron have been doing.
