Upheaval in South Korea

Those massive protests have finally borne fruit:
Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who was removed from office earlier this month, was arrested Friday on charges related to abuse of power and accepting bribes.

"Major crimes have been ascertained and there is a concern that the suspect might attempt to destroy evidence," Judge Kang Bu-young said in a text message to reporters. "The court recognizes the need, necessity and reasonableness of the suspect's arrest."

Prosecutors announced Monday that they were seeking to arrest Park on charges relating to abuse of power, accepting bribes and leaking important information. "The suspect abused the mighty power and position as President to take bribes from companies and infringed upon the freedom of corporate management and leaked important confidential official information," said the statement from the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office.
The level of international instability seems to be getting increasingly out of control. But is it the globalists losing control, or is it instigated chaos out of which order will be ever-so-helpfully offered?

Or, as is most likely the case, is it some combination of the two?

"But is it the globalists losing control, or is it instigated chaos out of which order will be ever-so-helpfully offered?"

This is actually a decent example of the difference between the two. The Korean affair is an example of a circumstance which would be very difficult to create via institutional power; its the sort of thing that only arises organically, and can only (at best) be taken advantage of by the powers-that-be as it arises.

By contrast, the refugee crisis is precisely the sort of destabilization that can be effected by institutional power. Use military intervention to disrupt the Middle East, then capitalize on decades of inculcated Globalist sentiment in the populace to allow for the massive movement of differently-cultured people into the regions of interest. Then use the resulting instability to justify more authoritarian measures. Brilliant, though perhaps poorly-paced. Time will tell if nationalist backlash is strong enough to demonstrate they moved too quickly.

South Korea has much, much more integrity than supposedly "white" nations. Yeah yeah, the US is white like a rainbow flag these days, but Euro nations are much whiter- and much more corrupt by any standard.

Say what you want about Asians being less inventive, but Japan is about as inventive as Microsoft, and has about as much success. If innovation comes with hopeless corruption and instability, then stability wins every time.

While it was partially out of opportunity (Park is the daughter of one of their former dictators and wasn't very good at the job, Hello Nepotism!), my Korean contacts point out that a lot of the issue stems from the fact there was some obscure cult that had power over her.

Corruption is one thing; freaky cults with shamans & blood rituals is a bit too much. There's also a likely undercurrent of the first large Christian effect on Korean politics. The country will be majority Christian by the end of the century. So expect a civil war before then.

Blogger Eric Slate April 01, 2017 2:29 PM  

Based on the Rules for Rulers model, Park is insufficiently globalist and is being replaced. If the Globalists still wanted him in control of South Korea, they would brand the protesters as violent rioters using their media and antifa tools to fabricate evidence, then go in with the police.

Just based on the legacy media coverage, which seemed to jump on this story early, and gave it a lot of coverage, all of it seemingly following a Park = bad line from the start, I would guess that her ouster is an outcome desired by TBTP. Or at least one that they can work with, as in the "order out of chaos" that you cite. If that's true, it's hard to tell whether it was something they instigated, or whether they just fanned the flames.

Blogger Bob Loblaw April 01, 2017 3:04 PM

This isn't even close to being true. Korea is a lot like China in that bureaucrats demand "gifts" to "make things go smoothly". If a Korea national in Korea gets caught breaking the law, he can make the whole thing go away with the appropriate payments as long as it's not too public.

Park isn't going to jail because she's corrupt - all of them are and it's expected (within reason). She's going to jail because she came out on the losing end of a power struggle.

A couple weeks ago there was a 1/4 page ad on the front page of the LA Times, begging people to vote against the impeachment of Sum Yung Gal. Three things were clear:

1. Lamestream paper media is completely illegitimate.
2. If Koreans are buying front page ads in Californian newspapers to influence Korean votes, then there are WAY too many Koreans not in Korea.
3. They have to go back.

Yes, though I haven't been paying attention to this very much, rumor has it that the "cult" stuff is a tissue-thin excuse along the lines of impeaching Trump for alleged contact with the Russians, or something equally trivial, and that this is basically a globalist power-grab of some kind.

Have no idea if that's the case, but I guess we'll see.

As far as South Korea's corruption level, I only have old data. When my dad was stationed there in the mid-1960s, it was a totally corrupt military dictatorship that ran fairly openly on bribery, kickbacks, and what you might call "insider trading." Of course, that doesn't mean they haven't cleaned up their act massively since; neither he nor I are Korea experts by any means.

Anonymous David Carver April 01, 2017 3:17 PM  

"Based on the Rules for Rulers model, Park is insufficiently globalist and is being replaced."

An interesting coincidence: Park's father was removed from power too, before his term was up. He was assassinated by his intelligence chief back in the 1970s, during the time of Jimmy Carter.

Supposedly, the motive was over a petty dispute, but I always wondered. At the time, Park wasn't getting along with the US, and Carter was beating him over the head over human rights violations. Park had promised to step down years earlier, but then changed the constitution to allow himself to be president indefinitely.

After Park's murder, the military took power in a bloody coup. The first foreign official the new military dictator received was David Rockefeller. Go figure.

Bob, usually I'd agree completely- few nations even pretend to be looking out for the interests of the people anymore. But if their Assembly is accusing Samsung, LG, and Hyundai of complicity, asking "cui bono" is even harder than normal. Even if Soros was pumping billions into their government to make this happen, he would still be up against the rest of the South Korean economy.

Compare how ex-President Park is treated to Hillary Clinton, and it's not even a contest.

I just wonder if the globalists' witch-statecraft is like the little boy who discovers all the cool things that happen when you pour some common household items together in the sink, and then it gets out of control quickly.

*** Marvels at the cloud forming
*** Notices the burning sensation, hard to breathe

I'll try and keep it simple, basically Park managed to turn S.Korea into a sjw feminist dystopia, and while most S.Koreans were willing to go with it, someone on the inside leaked out that she was basically the puppet of a monied cult which lead to her being ousted from governance. This all comes from the only guy on the ground who posts on 8ch known as gookanon, and I managed to find a greatest hits compilation of his posts, plus one other gookanon:

Also, while I hate double posting, I forgot to mention that it shouldn't be surprising that western media ignores S.Korea's myriad issues beyond (expected) corruption. Why would they want to show what is essentially a feminist state is also completely off the rails with oppressive totalitarianism and feral women?

Also read that Maduro's considering major Russian and Chinese investment to keep the lights on.

So does the U.S. represent the 'people'? Or are the 'people' an extension of Chavez, AND Obama?

The case against immigration:

"In the United States, there is strong evidence that the national interest has not been well served by the country’s immigration policy over the last five decades. Even as levels of immigration have approached historic highs, debate on the topic has been subdued, and policymakers and opinion leaders in both parties have tended to overstate the benefits and understate or ignore the costs of immigration."

Hi, I'm a South Korean and I think the easiest way for you to get a slight grasp of what's going on in the country without having to read long articles, is to compare this situation to what happened in Ukraine during 'Euromaidan'

Because, I bet it's the Chinese behind the scene, who's orchestrating this entire process, using the pro-Chinese members of the parliament and the mainstream media which is heavily infiltrated by pro-Chinese people.
Their purpose is to get rid of the U.S. influence in S.Korea and establish 'pro-Chinese' government, just like 'the globalists' who overthrew the pro-Russian government in Ukraine to get rid of the Russian influence in the country and set up the government they wanted.
Tens of thousands of Chinese students who are here to "study" were believed to have participated in the early stages of anti-government protests.(There are lots of pictures that prove it.)
Lots of people who took part in those anti-government protests are just like the pets for them who were easily manipulated by the mainstream media.
They celebrated after the impeachment of the President like it's the victory of the people, but what has that 'people's victory' done to Ukraine?

If you have any additional interest in what's going on in the country,
I recommend you to go to these pages and read articles written by her attorney during this impeachment process to get the better understanding of the situation.

Expat living in Korea

This was a well-coordinated leftist hit job in collusion with Korea's uber liberal MSM.

Same as the liberal media tried to do with Trump, but he's squeaky clean. The thing that got all this started--taking cues from a spiritualist--is the left's usual guilt by association.

As for the public outrage, the initial protests were astroturfed, but you'd have to understand the mob and serf mentality over here to see how millions of ppl would take to the streets based on knowing absolutely nothing other than what they read in the (fake news) media.

As i see it, the globalists' set the heading/course and let any resulting insignificant vacillations occur as they will.

Occasionally a more 'hands on' approach is necessary as may be seen by the use of weaponized migration or by the punishment of an underling who has fallen out of favor for whatever reason.

There does recently though seem to be an element of haste indicating that while this evil may have the upper hand, their control may not be quite as ubiquitous as the marketing implies.
