My morning began with a conversation with my wife. As I am in the habit of regaling her with a selection of the latest memes, current events was the topic. It doesn’t matter the topic, her response is always the same: “There’s nothing we can do about any of this.” I see the despair in her eyes as they meet with my own. Maybe “despair” is too strong a term. Hopeless resignation is more accurate, I think. I am hard-pressed to disagree with her entirely. I can see a different path. It is not an easy one. It is not a likely path but it is a path nonetheless. More about that in a bit. It seems more expedient to consider the most likely path, the one we all seem to be on. The road to hell.
Per my last post, pResident Slo Mo Biden is obviously hellbent on driving us down this road. Well, not him actually, on his best day he didn’t have the cajones, much less the brains to find his own way there. Forget about taking the wheel. So, more accurately, his handlers, who are likely employed by a globalist cabal, are chauffeuring all of us. We all know the issues facing us. If you see any news at all, everything is repeated ad infinitum.
As a nation we are on the brink of a “hot war” with the one nation possessing nuclear armaments rivaling our own both in quantity and in destructive force. The man with the “finger on the button” has a sterling reputation for consistently making awful decisions. This isn’t just some right-wing nut case talking…
“I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says of Vice President Joe Biden in his new book coming out later this month. Gates’ assessment of Biden’s boss is only slightly better, depicting an Obama administration with very murky lines of communication on military issues.
You can’t get much farther left than this. The problem is, the premise of a hot war with Russia is just the beginning. Meanwhile, some genius in the Biden misAministration decided to let Russia, yes Russia, work a deal with Iran to revamp Nobama’s nuclear deal. Today I learned the grownups (Russia and Iran) have shut the kids (the US) out of the room while they negotiate. Hey! I write fiction but even I can’t stretch MY imagination that far!
Let’s not forget the Biden’s long ties with Ukraine. While I admire Zelenskyy’s grit, it could very well be an act. There are also indications Ukraine is not the “democracy” we are all led to believe. Add to that, recent revelations that Ukraine has been working on bioweapons at the behest of our own US government and, well, the whole story is getting stinky.
Then there’s China. They’ve been caught playing footsies with Russia. So now we have a massive economic power (China) teaming up with an aggressor nation with vast resources and they are both bedding down with Iran. Oh, and let’s not forget India. They have ties to both Russia and China.
Put it all together and they have the manpower and resources to crush every Western nation if we all banded together. On a good day, the United States of America would have a tough time facing such a foe. Thanks to Slo Mo Joe, our nation is waning. Worse it is rotting from the inside out and it is all intentional.
Let’s start with oil. When President Trump left office we were a net exporter of oil and the price of gasoline was about $2.50 per gallon on average. Today we import much of our oil and the price of gasoline has hit an all-time high. What has changed? The occupant in the White House.
While speculation abounds about why Russia decided to invade Ukraine at this point in time, I find it hard to dismiss the availably of cheap energy as one of the prime factors. Certainly everything Joe Biden has done during his short occupation of the Oval Office has contributed but oil floats to the top of my list.
The short supply of US oil along with massive spending has fueled inflation to all-time highs. While “all-time highs” is not official, once you account for changes in how inflation is calculated, you’ll be hard-pressed to prove me wrong on this. Congress is complicit in all of this. Just today I saw this from Marjorie Taylor-Green
Yep, the House is vying for yet another spending spree. Just the other day Biden stood up before his fellow Democrats saying the idea that spending is the prime cause of inflation is “just not true”. I won’t waste my time in the mental midget but for anyone who needs to grasp it, the principle is simply supply and demand. As the supply of money increases, the value decreases and prices increase. The demand side is a bit more obscure but our government, via the Federal Reserve, prints money and then loans it via treasury notes to investors. As the glut in fiat bucks grows, it becomes harder to find investors. Short and sweet, as more money is printed the less value it has.
As if inflation wasn’t enough, the short supply of natural gas, another energy product, affects everything in our nation. Fertilizer is a primary concern as the production of nitrogen, one of the main components of fertilizer. Fertilizer prices have risen to the point were many farmers have decided not to use any this year – at least those who are still planting. Then consider the cost of harvesting. From planting to harvesting, machinery is crucial to American agriculture. Our machinery runs on fossil fuels. As those costs go up one of two things can be expected to happen. Either the farmer will decline to produce a crop as it becomes unprofitable to do so or the price of his goods will increase and we will pay dearly for them. Actually, both are likely to happen. Farmers are on the low end of the profit scale when it comes to food production. If anyone were to get rich from higher prices, it ain’t them.
Of course, none of the above takes into account the invasion. Not Ukraine. America. While the media and the rest of the circus clowns are wringing their hands over 190,000 Russian troops invading Ukraine, and rightly so to a point, our Southern border is flooded with over 2 MILLION illegal aliens, drugs and who knows what else? That’s TEN TIMES the number if insurgents overrunning Ukraine’s borders folks. The media? Crickets.
By the by, the US Census puts the total immigrant population (both legal and illegal) in the US at 46+ Million. In my cursory glance I didn’t see any breakdown of this figure. It would be nice to know what the folks charged with counting heads says the number of illegal aliens is now.
In addition to illegal aliens, our borders are also open to anybody who wants to stroll across, including criminals and terrorists. Story after story emerges documenting known illegal alien criminals assaulting, robbing and even killing innocent US citizens. Even so, they are not leading the crime wave sweeping our nation.
All across the US, crime is surging. From flash robberies of upscale boutiques and high-end jewelers to murders in the streets, crime is rampant and the criminals? Well, in many cases they are simply let go without bail. Prosecutors across the nation are refusing to hold and sometimes even charge those arrested for criminal activity. Instead they free them, allowing them back on the streets to commit even more crimes.
The current crime wave is endorsed and backed by useful idiot liberals who lobby to defund the police while supporting no-cash bail laws. Lately many leftist politicians who worked hard to put these measures in place are now publicly backing off. Have they really had a change of heart or simply changing their positions to avoid the political wind? You be the judge.
I’m just scratching the surface but you get the picture. At every turn something comes up to eat at the very foundation of our nation. The rule of law no longer exists. Ghislaine Maxwell sits in jail, convicted of child trafficking while her long list of politically-connected clients remain at large and uncharged. One must wonder why. Mounting evidence of Hillary Clinton’s role in the now-debunked Russian Collusion Hoax has failed to result in any charges filed against her. While numerous, validated questions about Hunter Biden’s illegal activities arise, he remains untouched. Though federal authorities executed a full-swat raid on Project Veritas head James O’Keefe in search of Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley Biden’s diary. Never mind the fact that no federal crime was committed. Unless of course you want to explore the utilization of federal assets for personal reasons. Joe?
Again and again, my wife and I discuss these stories. Again and again she shrugs her shoulders saying, “it’s not like anyone can do anything about it.”. Well, if this is the attitude of the citizens of our nation then she’s correct. Nothing will happen. Nobody is going to save us. How does this all end then?
Here’s scenario number one:
Nobody does anything. The politicians and their minions continue to rape, pillage and destroy our nation until we reach a breaking point. [Note, the money men are counting profits all along. They like to stay behind the scenes and run things from afar. ] At some point something will give. It has to. Whether it is our economic system, race riots, war or some other, unforeseen event or series of events, it will all come to a head.
When that happens, all bets are off. Someone might declare a “national emergency” and seize power on the spot. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. The deciding factor, as always, will be how much they believe we citizens will tolerate. We’ve already proven quite docile. They could simply engage the troops. Of course, first we’ll see law enforcement deployed in all their glory. Then the National Guard will be called in. Last but not least, we’ll see the military put boots on the ground. Once this happens, it is only a matter of time before a “provisional government” assumes power. At some point they will defer to some “global leadership”. The globalists will finally be able to establish their world government because our nation no longer stands in their way.
It will all start with a crisis of some sort. Some time after that, citizens may or may not rise in protest at the draconian measures imposed on us. Covid was just a precursor, you ain’t seen nothin yet. Then the hammer comes down, on us. Stick a fork in us, we will be done.
Granted there are many ways this sort of thing can play out. God knows the authoritarians (notice how this word has become more popular since I first started using it?) are tossing everything they can to get this fire blazing. They are not going to stop. If they could have figured out what it would take to push us over the edge, they’d have done it already. We’ve been maddingly resilient but even we can only take so much. As I’ve said so many times before, I’m no prophet. All I do is extrapolate from the present. So the what may blindside me, but the end result will be the same.
Scenario number two
We, the People stand up. We take back our nation. In my little mind, I envision a county by county effort. Yes, I’ve advocated this before. What I would really love to see is for citizens to gather at our respective county seats on a single day to send a message to the politicians and their money-men.
“Your Reign of Terror is OVER!”
We are in charge now. This would be just a start. Continuing on, we would initiate a series of resolutions designed to take back our nation and regain control. These resolutions would direct our elected representatives concerning our wishes for our states and our nation. The first ones would need to be sweeping and big – such as directing our federal government to produce a budget AND prohibit them from borrowing another dime. And so forth.
This concept is similar to Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary movement. Just before Covid hit, citizens all over our commonwealth convinced our county boards to declare our respective counties to be Second Amendment Sanctuaries. The movement was a response to the State’s recent attack on our 2A rights.
To date, the politicians largely ignored our efforts. Most of them scoff at us. We ain’t done yet. They can ignore us at their own political peril. We have a glimmer of hope. Virginia citizens spoke loudly again last November. This time the overwhelming reason was our kids. What point an be taken away from all this?
Yes, we CAN vote our way out of this… so to speak. Many, especially my brothers on the right, disdain the idea. I understand why. For decades we citizens vote and vote and vote. Sometimes we see some light at the end of the tunnel but it is always extinguished far too soon. The problem is our vote is only part of the answer. As was demonstrated in November 2020, what also matters is who counts the votes. We’ve been far too lax on that matter. Even then we are not out of the woods.
Because the real problem facing us citizens is politics, in particular, party politics. As long as the baton is passed from Democrat to Republican and back again, all we will see is two sides of the same rotten egg. Inside it is black and putrid. This needs to change. We need to divorce ourselves form party politics.
The good news is modern technology can overcome this. In most places in this nation citizens can write in our votes. Forget the old whine about who might win if we go “third party”. If all we can do is choose between two evils we then are forced to choose evil. But we are not forced. Not really.
Thus I am convinced it is possible to rebuild our nation. In order to do so, we citizens, must reclaim our birthright to self-government. We need to shove the politicians to the side of the road and drive away, never looking back. We need to decentralize, to make our county seats the centers of our political lives. From there we rule our own patches of American soil. From there we direct our representatives and hold them accountable.
As much as I see how this dream is possible, I have to agree with my wife. It won’t happen. Why? Simply because the citizens of our nation will not make it happen. Instead we all shrug our shoulders saying “Well, somebody’s gotta do something.”. And along comes another politician promising everything under the sun and a chicken in every pot. Good luck with that.
