This Government Shutdown Is About To Get Really Interesting Really Quickly
This scenario is tough to lay out because I’m struggling with two different viewpoints here:
One the one hand, we cannot have President Trump cave like a sniveling coward on this issue – it’ll for the most part spell the end of the beginning stage no matter what sort of deal is worked out (it would come down to either the same old game, or an exchange of DACA amnesty for a few hundred miles of pathetic border fence).
But on the other hand, I feel for the millions of Whites dependent on food stamps, WIC, and other essential programs that are set to run dry by the end of next month at the very latest.
I understand their pain and worry, and fear for their well-being if everything continues on its current course.
But perhaps (I’m going to get a bit dark minded) this is what’s needed – take away comforts and security and make the White Man realize the real nature of things.
The country would face an economic hellscape if the government shutdown lasts “months or even years,” as the president has suggested it might, experts tell NBC News.
The doomsday scenario might be unlikely — the longest the federal government has ever shut down is 21 days, a record that will fall if the current closure lasts until Saturday — but it is chilling.
“We’ll be in no man’s land,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told NBC News.
If the worst were to happen, experts say the devastating impact would be widespread:
38 million low-income Americans lose food stamps
6 million face an uncertain timetable for collecting tax refunds
2 million without rental assistance and facing possible eviction
800,000 paycheck-less federal employees plunged into dire financial straits
Shuttered parks and museums while overstressed airports cause tourism to tank
Federal court system slows to a crawl
Disaster relief money doesn’t get to storm-ravaged areas
Lapsed FDA and EPA inspections lead to dangerous outbreaks
Private companies looking to go public are stuck in limbo
Stock market plummets
The end isn’t near — yet. But if the standoff persists — talks blew up at the White House on Wednesday — and Congress and President Donald Trump can’t reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling in a few months, “it’s game over — you’ll have a pretty severe recession,” Zandi said, adding that given the trade war with China, and Brexit looming, “you could start seeing some pretty dark scenarios” worldwide.
WITHOUT FOOD, HOMES
By the end of February, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, run by the Department of Agriculture, would be out of funding — meaning almost 40 million low-income Americans could find themselves struggling to pay for food, said Joseph Brusuelas, chief economist for the accounting firm RSM US.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development, meanwhile, has already seen 1,150 contracts with private landlords housing low-income tenants lapse. Another 500 will expire by the end of this month, and another 550 by the end of February, the agency says.
Funding for rental assistance for millions of tenants could be at risk as soon as next month.
“The near-term impact is people getting evicted, having their heat turned off and not having enough food,” Brusuelas said.
The list goes on and on – remember that tax refunds are about to get disrupted or delayed into timetables of insanity.
But we can now say that this (not Supreme Court picks, not fights over bump stocks, and not Obamacare) is the focal moment of Donald Trump’s Presidency.
He has the chance to become something truly of legend (memes aside), or the chance to go down in White folklore and history as the bumbling Orange Fool who had the chance to prevent catastrophe on an epic scale.
It really comes down to the Nationalism description, and whether President Trump holds to his statements or whether he was lying for the tasty news coverage (I have my suspicions, but let him show his hand publicly).
Because you see, a true Nationalist is willing to sacrifice himself for the common good of his people – legacy means nothing, and individualism and freedumbs mean nothing contrary to what Cuckservatives will tell you.
A Nationalistic President would not care if his reelection fails, and wouldn’t care one iota if a gaggle of Jewish journalists slam him until he lies on his deathbed – it’s the race and/or nation that matters above all, and personal feels are expected to be relegated to a secondary role.
