Tea Party Shutdown Revealed to be Chinese Plot to Destroy American Hegemony: A Creditanstalt IB Exclusive Report!

The Creditanstalt Intelligence Bureau (IB), based on an exclusive leak of top-secret NSA dossiers obtained by Edward Snowden, outs the Tea Party faction of the Republican Party as covert ‘Manchurian Candidate’ agents of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) bent on once-and-for-all destruction of American global economic and political hegemony.

The story in brief:
  • Tea Party leaders, masquerading as ultrapatriotic know-nothing Americans, are actually Chinese sleeper agents wittingly or unwittingly programmed to self-destruct American power as part of a long-term CCP subterfuge program initiated by Chairman Mao Zedong in the 1960s, codenamed “Manchurian Candidate II (MCII),”  inspired by the 1959 novel and 1962 hit movie.
  • Their chief media outlet, Fox News, long ago aligned itself with the Chinese MCII program after News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch reached an agreement in 1993 with the CCP to allow his Sky TV network to broadcast in mainland China (after dropping BBC from his programming and other acts of groveling self-censorship – see NY Times, NY Review of Books and Guardian revelations about Murdoch’s China connection).

  • The wealth of the Tea Party’s chief financial backers, the Koch brothers, goes back to their father Fred’s petroleum activities in the Soviet Union under Stalin. Fred Koch disguised his communist sympathies after returning to the US by becoming a rapbid spokesman for the John Birch Society.
  • Manchurian Candidate II follows upon previous failed Chinese subterfuge programs against America such as currency manipulation (now undermined by accelerating Chinese wage inflation) and the American gross obesity epidemic due to addictive consumption of high-fructose corn syrup (now undermined by McDonald’s promotion of salad bars). Both of these programs were initiated during the Nixon administration, and achieved their early success due to the subtle but effective brainwashing and heavy doses of MSG Nixon had been subjected to during his historic meetings with Mao in Beijing.
  • Chinese leaders realized that they could never overtake America by economic growth alone due to their declining birthrate and the limitations of a pure catch-up strategy, as became clear after the Japanese relative stagnation in the 1990s. Their current reliance on MCII is proving to be much more cost effective while preserving the façade of a nativist, anticommunist, anti-big-government grassroots movement. 
A number of prominent commentators have pointed out that the Tea Party Republicans’ use of the debt ceiling as an instrument of political blackmail is tantamount to assisted suicide for American economic and political hegemony, and threatens the stability of the entire economic structure of the Western world (see e.g. Simon Johnson’s “The Loss of U.S. Pre-eminence,” the IMF’s Christine Lagarde’s recent speech, Kenneth Rogoff’s “America’s Endless Budget Battle” or Jonathan Freedland’s “Shutting Down the World?”; read them in the context of my 2009 web essay). While isolationists in America’s past were eager to turn their backs on the rest of the world, their Tea Party descendants actually seem willing to sabotage the foundations of their own country for the purported principle of denying their citizens access to (near but not universal) health insurance, something every other industrialized country has enjoyed for decades cheaper and more effectively than the USA. That the shutdown is not really about ‘Obamacare’ is something leading Republicans have admitted in the meantime:
“We’re not going to be disrespected,” conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., [told the Washington Examiner]. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”*
President Obama’s cancelation of his Asian trip this week to APEC and ASEAN meetings is already a notable triumph for MCII, since it decisively undermines his ‘Asian pivot’ strategy that the Chinese rightly see as targeted against their great-power aspirations in the Asia-Pacific region.

Even without the Snowden documents it is clear just on a cui bono basis alone that there can be no other rational explanation for the Tea Party’s hijacking of the Republican Party and its unprecedented flirtation with US default than China’s covert Manchurian Candidate II program. The only alternative—pure pleasure in playing a game of chicken with President Obama at the American people’s expense—is patently implausible.

The Tea Party Caucus would like us to believe that the government shutdown and debt-ceiling showdown are a desperate but justifiable game of chicken to forestall ‘Obamacare’, big government and deficits. After the Creditanstalt IB revelations, however, we now know them to be solely in the interests of China’s strategy for world hegemony, in which Tea Party politicians are witting or unwitting pawns. (Still from Rebel Without a Cause)

[The Creditanstalt Intelligence Bureau wishes to point out to the particularly dense that the above is a (reverse) satirical exercise in “The Paranoid Style in American Politics.” Since the game of chicken the Tea Party Caucus is pursuing is indistinguishable in its effects from the purported Chinese Manchurian Candidate II strategy outlined above, the distinction between real foreign sleeper agents and libertarian American patriots seems entirely moot.]
