Lael Brainard – recently nominated as Joe Biden’s Federal Reserve Vice Chairman – controversially refused to label the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) a currency manipulator during her stint in the Obama administration and is married to Kurt Campbell, who has deep ties to Beijing’s foreign influence operations and propaganda organs, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal.
When reporting on the nomination of Brainard earlier this week, corporate media outlets all neglected to mention the nepotistic appointment, as well as Brainard’s long-standing ties to CCP influence groups.link
I believe many of these people are naive and easily charmed (and bribed) by China. Many Westerners have been gulled by a 25-year Chinese charm (and bribery) offensive. This is yet another result of losing all of our major institutions to, firstly, infiltration by dedicated bad actors (beginning 70 years ago) and then, secondly, to a system that from then on promotes generation after generation of obedient mediocrities, each weaker and more obedient than the one before. We can see this same phenomenon in our medical institutions and schools where the rot has gone on for so long we now have virtually all doctors and hospitals being controlled by a few people at the top, where some of the earliest mediocrities still reside (Fauci, Collins, Birx, etc). We probably can safely extrapolate from this sketch and apply it to empires throughout history. Empires fall for all the same reasons we all know but the constant promotion of obedient mediocrities probably should be moved to the topmost part of the list. The psychology of this is the first mediocrity (Fauci, for example) rules by vanity and decree and cannot bear anyone smarter or more outspoken than him being anywhere near him. So he hires and promotes obedient mediocrities who share his weakness and hatred of independent thinkers. As this process moves from one generation to the next, the mediocrities become weaker and vainer at each step. This paradigm can also be applied to academia, legacy media, unions, political parties, etc. It’s not just corruption or professional tribalism, it’s also a progressive encroachment of weakness, vanity, and stupidity to the point where an entire culture is brought to its knees.
