With the rise of all of these authoritarians like Herr Drumpf, for example, it’s sometimes called “nationalism” or dare I say even absurdly “populism” (although  I don’t know that nationalism is any less absurd). I would say however that it’s more like kleptocracy and totalitarianism rising, myself! It definitely ain’t Nasserism… That people actually vote for these folks without one iota of integrity who have spent their lives fleecing people truly beggars belief! The Central Asian Republic model apparently will defeat democracy in that future that we’ve all seen in science fiction movies! (Paul Krugman had written a very apropos op-ed in this regard “America Becomes a Stan” not long after the election.)

The neocons have been so jubilant since the Berlin Wall fell that democracy defeated communism, but post-Sovietism apparently will be the next “progression” for humanity! What goes around comes around for all of our crimes of “Yanqui imperialism” during the Cold War, I guess that one might say! And for those who think that the Ruskies saddled us with perhaps the dumbest and most depraved leader since Caligula, Putin should look out for that playboy Jewish oligarch who owns the Brooklyn Nets! He may still yet be coming for you, Vlad!

Herr Drumpf has yet to bring back coal! The dodgy scheme that he rolls out that will ostensibly do that, I’m certain will be a wonder/marvel to see! (And promptly go down with a whomp, whomp, whomp much like DrumpfDon’tCare.) But anyway, I’m sure that Uday and Qusay must be working on it right now in fact, whilst Madame Ivanka Nhu manages the war making activities in the Middle East! Mossad son-in-law does all else apparently (with his “uber-portfolio”)!

No emoluments here! Just the cleanest gubermint er swamp er cesspit that’s ever been seen in the good ole U.S. of A!
