It kneecapped China’s economy (America’s primary rival).
Virus hit just before Lunar New Year in China, the country’s biggest travel holiday, for maximum impact.
Also spread in Iran, another of America’s chief geopolitical rivals. In particular, several Iranian politicians have contracted the disease. A prominent adviser to Ayatollah Khomeini died from the virus.
An Israeli company’s suspicious comments about producing a vaccine. It claimed it had already been developing a Coronavirus cure before the outbreak of the virus, and had decided to begin developing a Coronavirus vaccine out of “pure luck.”
There are claims that the virus actually originated in the US, rather than China. At least one Chinese official is publicly claiming that the US military brought the virus to China in Ocotber 2019 under the guise of the Wuhan Military Games, which took place that month.
Of course, while the disease initially hit China the worst and then Iran, it is now spreading rapidly in a lot of countries considered to be America’s allies. South Korea, Italy, France, Spain and Germany are all getting hit badly.
In fact the virus has largely plateaued in China, and Europe has become the epicenter, according to the World Health Organization. Based on the official reports from China, the worst is over for them:
It has plateaued in South Korea and it seems they largely have it under control there, but it is not under control in Europe.
So if this virus was an American bioweapon, there has been an awful lot of collateral damage. But this is all under the assumption that only cases and deaths matter. What if infecting a lot of people wasn’t the ultimate goal for whomever released the virus?
To the extent that people discuss conspiracy theories about the Coronavirus, they think along the lines of it being a weapon intended to kill lots of people.
But I don’t think that’s accurate. If the Coronavirus was indeed a bioweapon, and whomever unleashed it intended it to kill lots of people, by any objective measure, they have failed spectacularly at that. It’s tough to say with certainty just how many people have been infected by this virus given that we’re taking the official numbers at face value and assuming they haven’t been underreported by any country. But even if we triple the official numbers, that’s still not a lot of people in the grand scheme of things.
No, I think if this was a bioweapon, the real goal was something else. To figure out what that something else is, let’s look at what the virus has succeeded in doing:
It has succeeded in spreading fear and disrupting the economy. If those outcomes were the actual goal of the coronavirus, then they didn’t even need an actual disease. They only needed a media fear campaign.
In fact, it seems that every year since Y2K there has been some media fear campaign over something or other:
And don’t forget Global Warming™, which has been an unrelenting fear campaign for the past 15 years.
Why would they want us to be afraid? A scared populace is a controlled populace. And it makes us more likely to give up our freedoms in exchange for perceived safety.
But there is one highly compelling reason that suggests the Coronavirus isn’t a bioweapon orchestrated by the elite, or the Pentagon going rogue, or what have you: it has exposed the structural deficiencies of the globalist world order. Open borders and free trade turn epidemics into global pandemics. Globalization means a virus in one country can spread to countless other countries and even bring down the whole global economy.
Pat Buchanan recently argued quite convincingly that the Coronavirus could end up delivering a knockout blow to the globalist ideology.
“In retrospect, was it wise to have relied on China to produce essential parts for the supply chains of goods vital to our national security? Does it appear wise to have moved the production of pharmaceuticals and lifesaving drugs for heart disease, strokes and diabetes to China? Does it appear wise to have allowed China to develop a virtual monopoly on rare earth minerals crucial to the development of weapons for our defense?
As for the “open borders” crowd, do Democrats still believe that breaking into our country should no longer be a crime, and immigrants arriving illegally should be given free health care, a proposition to which all the Democratic debaters raised their hands?
In this coronavirus pandemic, people now seem to be looking for authoritative leaders and nations seem to be looking out for their own peoples first. Would Merkel, today, invite a million Syrian refugees into Germany no matter the conditions under which they were living in Syria and Turkey?
Is not the case now conclusive that we made a historic mistake when we outsourced our economic independence to rely for vital necessities upon nations that have never had America’s best interests at heart?
Which rings truer today? We are all part of mankind, all citizens of the world. Or that it’s time to put America and Americans first!”
It’s probable that once the dust settles and this thing has run its course, the coronavirus will have done irrevocable damage to the credibility of the ruling globalist elite. Nationalist ideologies have already been growing in popularity since at least 2015, and the rapid global spread of this virus will only boost their appeal.
How many normal people have been red-pilled against globalism due to the coronavirus? More and more people are going to start rejecting open borders and free trade after seeing how a virus can spread around the world. The idea that China’s (or any other country) problems shouldn’t be our problems resonates with people on a very fundamental level.
Now, just because this virus destroys the credibility of the globalist elites does not mean it wasn’t orchestrated. It’s possible the military went rogue and did this on its own, believing it to be in its interests rather than those of the civilian elite.
Or maybe the globalist elite was on-board with the military’s plan and it was simply botched. Never discount the possibility that the elite can be incompetent sometimes. They may be powerful but they’re not all-powerful. They make mistakes sometimes. After all, they failed to foresee that 9-11 and their power grab after it (Patriot Act/mass surveillance, world policing, endless foreign wars, massive ramp-up in military spending, etc.) would backfire into a lot of the driving force behind the resurgence of nationalism and isolationism.
So what’s the verdict? I don’t know. I reflexively distrust the mainstream media/government narrative on just about everything, and the coronavirus is no different. But it’s tough to see how this benefits anyone. The economic impact in America (and everywhere else) is likely to be severe, and if anything, this only further damages the public’s faith in the ruling elite and its official ideology of liberal globalism.
But we haven’t yet seen the endgame. Maybe they’re planning on rolling out some sort of vaccine in the darkest hour that people will desperately accept. Or maybe they’ll use the virus to roll out sweeping policy changes regarding quarantines, lockdowns and other authoritarian measures, similar to the Patriot Act following 9-11.
It’s tough to say because we’re still in the middle of it. We’ll have to wait and see what changes the elite seeks to implement with the virus as justification.
Mainstream public “intellectual” Steven Pinker might well have said one of the dumbest things of 2020:
The thought never even crossed Steven Pinker’s head that globalization is a choice, and that there is an alternative.
“Viruses don’t care about borders.” Yeah, assuming you continue allowing people to cross those borders.
Assuming you continue the system of global trade and reliance on dozens of other countries around the world for your supply chains.
It’s all by choice. It’s all so the global economy can be structured like this:
“Intellectuals” like Steven Pinker cannot conceive of any other way for the world to work. To him, modern globalization is and always has been.
To him, there is no conceivable alternative to a world where one break in the supply chain leads to cascading problems all around the world.
Bizarrely, he cites a global pandemic as the reason why “neo-nationalism” (gotta throw in that word association with Neo Nazis) doesn’t work. But this is a vulnerability of globalism, not nationalism.
Nationalism would be closing the borders so we’re not susceptible to a virus that originated in China. Globalism means someone in Argentina can catch a virus that started in China. What on earth is Steven Pinker saying?
Is he trying to claim that nationalism is simply a political ideology that nevertheless still accepts a globalized world? This guy doesn’t know the first thing about nationalism.
“Nationalist politics is rising all over the world, so an international virus outbreak made possible and exacerbated by the still-dominant globalist world order proves nationalism is futile and stupid.” This has got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read.
If we actually lived in a world of independent nations rather than an interdependent network of “economies,” virus outbreaks in one country would be better contained and pose far less of a risk to other countries.
Globalism is why basically all of Northern Italy is under quarantine due to a virus that began in China:
“We are facing an emergency, a national emergency,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said in announcing the government decree in a news conference after 2 a.m.
The move is tantamount to sacrificing the Italian economy in the short term to save it from the ravages of the virus in the long term. The measures will turn stretches of Italy’s wealthy north — including the economic and cultural capital of Milan and landmark tourist destinations such as Venice — into quarantined red zones until at least April 3.
They will prevent the free movement of roughly 16 million people.
Funerals and cultural events are banned. The decree requires that people keep a distance of at least one meter from one another at sporting events, bars, churches and supermarkets.
The Italian outbreak — the worst outside Asia — has inflicted serious damage on one of Europe’s most fragile economies and prompted the closing of Italy’s schools. The country’s cases nearly tripledfrom about 2,500 infectionson Wednesday to more than 7,375 on Sunday. Deaths rose to 366.”
Globalism is why the stock market is plunging, and we’re only at 500 cases nationwide here in the US:
In New York, 103 nationwide cases of Coronavirus caused a flood of shoppers to descend upon local supermarkets and empty the shelves:
This is how quickly it happens. That’s all it takes to set off a panic and make people rush into the supermarkets to empty the shelves. Imagine if it was something worse, like a war or an invasion or an even deadlier virus.
This is one of the many rarely-mentioned downsides of globalization.
So what should you be doing?
Well, short term, if you have some extra cash lying around, I’d invest it in the stock market. There’s been a decent-sized dip in the market as I’m sure you’re aware. Might be a good time to buy. Of course, stocks are still highly overvalued in a big-picture sense, having fallen just 10-15% from all-time, human history highs. But they’ll likely resume heading upwards as this blows over. We’re not going into a recession or a cyclical downturn right now so I’m thinking the market should bounce back.
When is the right time to buy? I’d say now. Stocks were killed all last week and are getting slaughtered again today (down over 5% as of 11am c.t.) That’s a 19% drop from the market’s all-time high it hit last month. So I’d say the market has fallen about enough to warrant hitting the Buy button. It could fall even further, so I would gradually buy. Don’t spend all your money in one day, wait it out a bit and buy over the course of a few days in case it goes lower tomorrow. The strategy is called “Dollar Cost Averaging,” look it up if you want to learn more about it.
But the bottom line is that I believe the market gotten cheap enough to become attractive for bargain hunters. It might go down another 5-10%, but that would just be an even better opportunity to buy.
This tweet sums up the market panic nicely:
It’s funny but it’s accurate. Markets are in free fall because of the prospect that economic activity will likely slow down for a couple of weeks tops.
If you are considering buying stocks but are fearful given all the scary news headlines, ask yourself if we are witnessing the collapse of the US economy, or if this is just a temporary panic. If it’s the latter, I’d say this looks like a good time to buy. Look at some of the big name stocks that have fallen and start buying shares.
Again, the market still could go lower. The worst may not be over yet. But we’re pretty close to the turning point right now. Ease into the market and don’t spend all your money at once.
Big picture, however, you need to be making plans to become self-sufficient. Coronavirus has shown just how fragile our global system is to unforeseen events. You have seen how quickly the supermarket shelves empty out, and it should scare you. Most Americans only have a week or two of food in their houses at best, and the coronavirus should make us realize how vulnerable we really are.
We don’t think about this when the shelves are full, only when they’re already empty.
It’s time to get out of the cities and become self-sufficient. Global pandemics will affect the cities the worst. City-dwellers are dependent on the supermarkets for food. They’re tightly packed and live in close proximity to tons of other people, meaning it’ll spread fastest in cities. So get out.
When the shit really does hit the fan in the future, the city-dwellers will be the first victims. They won’t stand a chance.
Just as nations should start taking steps to become more independent and self-sufficient, so should individuals.
I don’t want jump the gun but it appears the Coronavirus has already long since peaked in China, meaning that although it will continue to spread around the world and peak later in different countries due to distance from the epicenter, it’s basically over. It’s no longer spreading uncontrollably:
“China is the origin of the virus and still accounts for over 80 percent of cases and deaths. But its cases peaked and began declining more than a month ago, according to data presented by the Canadian epidemiologist who spearheaded the World Health Organization’s coronavirus mission to China. Fewer than 200 new cases are reported daily, down from a peak of 4,000.
Subsequent countries will follow this same pattern, in what’s called Farr’s Law. First formulated in 1840 and ignored in every epidemic hysteria since, the law states that epidemics tend to rise and fall in a roughly symmetrical pattern or bell-shaped curve. AIDS, SARS, Ebola — they all followed that pattern. So does seasonal flu each year.“
This is why I’m writing about it as if it has already blown over. Of course, China may well be lying about its figures, but I think it’s safe to say the virus has already long since peaked there.
Again, the worst is still to come here in America due to the fact that the epicenter is halfway around the world and there’s a lag because of it. But this is not going to be a global catastrophe of historical proportions. Society is not going to collapse. We’re going to be okay. Things should largely go back to normal in a month, two months at most.
But don’t let that be an excuse not to take any lessons from the Coronavirus. I hope it has made you keenly aware of just how vulnerable you are to mass panics. You should be taking steps to make yourself less reliant on full supermarket shelves.
So, Chancellor Merkel makes it *unambiguously* clear. There will be an EU army. Germany will be the dominant power behind it. I guess she fears the peoples of the EU Nations rising up – so her Army can crack some skulls pic.twitter.com/ftQP5zDjk6
This is your periodic reminder that most Americans only “know” what the Uniparty Propaganda media allows them to know. Sadly, if it’s not on “the news,” then most Americans are completely ignorant to it. And they still believe themselves to be informed and free.
The US “media” stopped covering the Yellow Vests within a week of the first protests last November after it became clear the protests were against neoliberal globalism. No need to give oxygen to movements that threaten the power of the transnational elite.
Nevertheless, Act XII of the Gilets Jaunes movement is currently underway, despite the US “media’s” best efforts to pretend it isn’t:
“France’s Yellow Vest protesters took to the street on Saturday, for the 22nd consecutive Saturday of demonstrations. Tension rose in Toulouse as thousands gathered for the first time since a controversial anti-rioting law took effect on April 11.
Several hundred people had begun marching in Paris by 1pm on Saturday. Protests are also slated for Marseille, Grenoble, Lille and other cities.
On social media, Yellow Vest protesters in Toulouse were called on to keep up the fight against President Emmanuel “Macron and his world” and to “show that everything is just getting started after the results of the big debate”.
And this, right here, is why you don’t hear about the Yellow Vests anymore: because it’s a movement against Macron, the poster boy for elitist neoliberal globalism.
“Less than one hour after the start of the demonstration, clashes broke out when protesters threw stones at the police. The latter answered by firing tear gas.
Prime Minister Édouard Philippe on Monday presented the initial findings of a vast, nearly three-month-long public consultation known as the Grand Débat. Macron launched the initiative in January in response to the Yellow Vest unrest saying he “intend[ed] to transform violence into solutions”.
Which solutions? Certainly not solutions that have anything to do with the actual problems the Yellow Vests are so angry about.
No, the French government sees the Yellow Vests themselves as the problem:
“The new anti-rioting law, which was partially censured by the country’s Constitutional Council before taking effect and which has been condemned by dozens of organisations, makes it illegal to cover one’s face during demonstrations. It took effect on Thursday.
Wonder if this anti-face covering law applies to Muslims?
“Last week, “Act 21” of the protests drew 22,300 people into the streets, the Interior Ministry said, the lowest official figure since the demonstrations began in mid-November.”
That’s still a lot of people, though.
“Saturday’s showing is due to serve as merely a foretaste to larger demonstrations slated for April 20, with Macron expected to present his response to the nationwide debate in a speech in the interim.”
“The European parliament has overwhelmingly backed a watershed resolution calling for reparations for crimes committed in Africa during European colonialism.
The bill urges European member states to introduce a series of sweeping reforms aimed at tackling ‘structural racism’ facing millions of Afro-Europeans.
It calls on the countries to implement nation-wide strategies to deal with discrimination in education, health, housing, policing, the justice system and politics.
The resolution – approved by 535 MEPs, with 80 votes against and 44 abstentions – also calls on European member states to declassify their colonial archives, covering the most disturbing periods of Europe’s colonial past, and issue public apologies.”
While the article uses the term “reparations,” it does not mention any sort of large-scale cash payment white Europeans must make to Africans. That’s generally what the term “reparations” refers to in America.
However, the article describes “reparations” as reforms that ensure “Afro-Europeans” are favored by the system in virtually every way. That’s similar to what happened in America following the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s: in order to “make up” for slavery and Jim Crow, white Americans would be treated as second-class citizens until all the wrongs were righted.
White people in America have White Guilt over slavery, white people in Europe have White Guilt over colonialism.
The common theme is that white people are the Great Menace of the World.
All white people on earth are Guilty.
There is a coordinated international effort to demonize, demoralize and eventually dispossess all white people.
“When Caroline Farrow, a Catholic commentator, and transgender rights campaigner Susie Green, agreed to take part in a television debate about a controversial Girl Guides policy, producers would have expected differences of opinion.
But while the conversation on screen was certainly heated, it was what happened off-air when the pair continued the debate on Twitter that resulted in a six-month-long police investigation.
Mrs Farrow, a mother of five with strong religious views, allegedly used the wrong pronoun when referring to Ms Green’s transgender daughter.”
“Misgender” a tranny on Twitter: SIX MONTH POLICE INVESTIGATION!
Imagine living in a country currently experiencing Islamic pedophile rings, acid attacks, a knife crime epidemic, and Islamic terrorist attacks all due to elite-imposed mass Muslim migration, and the police have all their energy and time trained on you for using the wrong gender pronoun on Twitter.
Not only have native-born Westerners become second-class citizens in their own countries, they are now actively persecuted for daring to voice any dissent against the sexually degenerate, multiculturalist agenda being forced on them.
If you think this is an isolated incident, guess again:
Hey, anyone remember what free speech was like?
Americans: this is our future if we give any ground to the left on “hate speech laws.”
Those of you tempted to believe the left is acting in good faith when it says it doesn’t want to abolish free speech, only to “curb hate speech”: this is what they want.
Conservatives must reckon with the fact that multinational megacorporations, which are now found oppressing and marginalizing anyone to the right of Jonah Goldberg, were only allowed to get as large and powerful as they currently are because of Reaganomics.
This is a difficult pill to swallow because Reagan is the Messiah to the conservative right. In their telling, he saved and revitalized the economy which fell apart in the 1970s and particularly under Jimmy Carter. Reagan’s neoliberal, or “supply side,” economic policies began a 25-year economic boom that was largely uninterrupted until the collapse of 2008, bringing American prosperity and business to new, unparalleled heights.
Regan’s influence on the right’s economic philosophy is so absolute that even in the 2012 election–24 years after Reagan had left office and 8 years after his death–Republican Presidential candidates competed with each other to show they were the most like Reagan. They would take turns showering him with praise and promising to be just like Reagan. The whole primary campaign was like watching Tibetan Buddhists try to find the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama: who was the TRUE reincarnation of Ronald Reagan?!
A whole generation of Young Conservatives™ born in the years following Reagan’s presidency have grown up revering and worshipping Ronald Reagan, believing him to be completely beyond critique, and his policies having had no downsides.
But while it’s undeniable that Reagan’s policies were great for corporate profits and the stock market, and that a ton of wealth was created following the early 1980s, what’s rarely discussed (even by many of Reagan’s leftwing critics) is the fact that the neoliberal economic paradigm Reagan’s policies ushered in gave us the era of multinational megacorporations and all the troubles they have wrought today.
Reagan’s tax cuts, deregulation and general pro-business, pro-international free trade policies were the opening corporate America needed to take off to heights not seen since the age of the Robber Barrons at the turn of the century.
The difference today is that corporations are hugely influential over our personal lives. We live largely at their mercy, tech giants in particular.
Today, you need to have a social media presence, and yet if you’re a conservative banned from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, you essentially cannot.
We have reached a scary point in the history of our country, where major corporations are not only virtue signaling for the approval of the left via cynical “Faux Woke” ad campaigns and rainbow-flag social media avatars, but are actively working to oppress and victimize political dissidents.
It’s not just about pandering to a leftwing audience in search of higher profits; it’s about actively enforcing a political agenda, even if it means alienating and even directly oppressing millions, perhaps tens of millions, of Americans.
The largest American corporations now fully realize just how much leverage they can exert over our behavior, and have begun using that leverage to silence political dissent and punish the enemies of Politically Correct Uniparty Globalism.
They have become the primary enforcers for totalitarian leftism. It’s not about profits anymore; it’s about power.
If you’re banned from Twitter, Facebook/Instagram, YouTube, Chase Bank, Uber, PayPal, and Airbnb it is going to be difficult to live a normal life and have a successful career.
That’s seven companies that collectively have an enormous amount of control over your ability to live a normal life and have a successful career in 2019.
Do you really want to get on their bad side? Is supporting Donald Trump really worth all the suffering you’re going to endure? Think of how easy it would be to just give up and support the Uniparty. You’d get to keep your social media accounts, you’d get to keep your bank account, you don’t have to worry about being socially ostracized, you don’t have to worry about being fired for Thought Crime. Things would be much easier if you simply gave in and supported the Uniparty, American Consumer #221,543,906.
And that’s just how it is now: it’ll get worse in the future. Soon, hotels will start denying rooms to dissidents. Airlines will blacklist them. Dissidents won’t be able to travel. They won’t be able to bank and get loans.
It doesn’t make as much sense for Amazon to close the accounts of dissidents, given that Amazon would be stupid to ban people who directly give it money on a regular basis, but is it that far out of the realm of possibility? Absolutely not. In fact I’d bet on it happening in the next few years. As of now I’ve not heard of Amazon denying political dissidents the ability to shop on their site, but they have for a while now been banning books written by dissidents, notably those by Roosh Valizadeh—and at the behest of Huffington Post, of course.
Even scarier is the prospect of Facebook and Google, who know everything about everyone, starting to use their vast trove of data to blackmail people into conformity.
Corporations have always been powerful, but never have they exerted as much control over our personal lives as they do today. And it was Ronald Reagan’s economic policies and philosophy that allowed these companies to grow so big and powerful.
We can better understand the rise of multinational megacorporations since Reagan in the following five trends that have emerged:
First, there are now fewer publicly traded companies than there were in 1980, a time when America had a population of 225 million (100 million fewer people than today) and when the US GDP was only about $2.8 trillion.
Today, a shrinking number of megacorporations control more and more of a $20 trillion economy. At the peak in 1996, there were over 8000 public companies in the US. Today there are around 4,000, a decline of nearly 50%.
This is mainly due to mergers and acquisitions, closures due to foreign competition, and closures of domestic competition caused by unfair, anti-competition government regulations written in large part by the megacorporations.
Here’s the market cap of that shrinking number of companies:
The entire economy has essentially become a cartel. Larger pie, fewer slices.
Second, since the early 1980s, the number of banks in the country has fallen by nearly 75%. Increasingly, our only options are the major banks like Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citi, US Bank and PNC.
More and more Americans use megabanks, and with fewer options for Americans, the banks are able to exert more control over our lives.
The name of the game is consolidation, both in banking and the economy overall. When did that begin? The 1980s.
Third, income inequality has taken off to the point where the top 1% of the country now holds more wealth than the bottom 90%:
Look where the divergence really begins: the early 1980s.
Median family income, which doubled from the end of WWII to 1970, has basically been flat for the past five decades:
Importantly, this is not a trend that began under Reagan, but the trend of income inequality largely did begin under Reagan:
Because while it’s technically accurate to say that real incomes for Americans haven’t really grown at all since the early 1970s, they have grown for the richest Americans.
The rich have left everyone in the dust; the actual gains that have been made since the early 1980s have gone to a small number of rich individuals and families at the top.
Fourth, global free trade has outsourced millions of jobs to cheap labor abroad. NAFTA may have been implemented in 1994 under Bill Clinton, but the negotiations began in 1988 under Reagan, continued under Reagan’s hand-picked successor George H.W. Bush and were completed under Clinton. NAFTA was Reagan’s idea originally, and in fact he made free trade a part of his campaign way back in 1979. NAFTA’s roots can undoubtedly be traced to Reagan.
This chart shows job outsourcing in the previous decade, the 2000s:
Multinational megacorporations added over 2 million jobs outside the US in the decade from 2000-2009 while cutting over 3 million jobs inside the US.
GE, for example, slightly increased its foreign workforce in the 2000s while reducing the size of its US workforce by 16%.
“In 2007, IBM reported having 121,000 workers in the United States. By 2009, this number had shrunk to 105,000, due to layoffs and outsourcing. But IBM is rapidly expanding its global workforce. Through a similar period in 2007, the company had 386,558 employees globally, a number which has since grown to 426,751.
But we don’t know how many U.S. employees it now has; IBM stopped publishing domestic statistics in late 2009, saying that it was no longer necessary because none of its competitors did.”
That’s because they’re all outsourcing like mad and don’t want anyone to know the true extent!
It is estimated that since China was allowed into the World Trade Organization in 2001 (one of the worst things to ever happen to American workers) over 3 million American jobs have been displaced:
Obviously Reagan was long gone by 2001, but China’s addition to the WTO was a lengthy process that began way back in 1986 and only culminated in 2001. Our trade imbalance with China and all the ills that accompany it began in the early 1990s:
You can see the divergence truly began in 1991 and is now completely out of control.
This has its origins in the neoliberal global capitalism/”free trade” philosophy that began under Reagan.
Fifth and finally, the rise of multinational megacorporations has coincided with the explosion of foreign immigration–both legal and illegal–into the US.
While the demographic transformation of America currently underway can be traced back to Ted Kennedy’s disastrous 1965 immigration overhaul, it was the big corporations that quickly realized they could exploit the left’s push for “diversity” and “multiculturalism” to obtain cheap foreign labor.
There is a massive amount of corporate support behind mass foreign immigration because big companies have realized that if they can’t ship your job overseas, they can bring someone from overseas here to do your job for cheaper.
The reason it has proven so difficult for Trump to stem the tide of foreign immigration is because there are a lot of powerful, wealthy businesses pushing back against him. They largely have Congress in their pockets.
Not only do mega corporations increasingly control our lives, they have also played a major role in destroying the fabric of this country via open borders immigration. Whether it’s cheap low-skilled labor from illegals or cheap high-skilled labor from the H1B visas, wage-killed immigration is in the best interest of the many big businesses that dominate this country.
So it’s no wonder our country is being flooded with third worlders: it is what’s best for the Big Corporations’ bottom lines.
All this goes back to Reagan and his ideology of neoliberal capitalism. It is virtually impossible to say otherwise.
If we are ever going to have any hope of salvaging our country, we must be honest about where the problems began.
Most importantly, the right must move on from the ideology of “free market capitalism.”
There may have been a time when “free market capitalism” truly meant “free market capitalism,” but it has now come to represent an oligarchy of multinational megacorporations.
This does not mean we have to embrace socialism. Not at all. It’s a false choice to suggest that we either have an oligarchy of multinational megacorporations or we have Full Blown Soviet-Style Communism, complete with gulags and Five Year Plans.
We must return to real capitalism. What we have now is basically an unholy alliance of big business and big government. This is not capitalism at all.
It’s not right to say that business is a good thing in and of itself. Small businesses are good, and even larger businesses can be good, but megacorporations are bad—especially when they work hand in hand with the government. Megacorporations spend millions of dollars each year lobbying Washington to write favorable regulations, which usually have the effect of warding off competition and entrenching the megacorporations even further.
“Pro-business” today usually ends up meaning “pro Big Business,” and that’s a bad thing. What we really need is pro-competitionpolicies.
And yes, we do need to reject the ideology of “free” trade because it’s killing us. Cheap Chinese shit has not been a worthwhile tradeoff given how many millions of jobs we’ve lost to outsourcing, and how much capital has been invested overseas instead of here in America.
“Free market economics” generally has a very positive connotation on the right, and conservatives will point to luminaries like Milton Friedman and Adam Smith to justify their views. I know because I used to be a devout, Reagan-worshipping “free market conservative,” believing that the free market was always and everywhere right and any form of government intervention was wrong.
Free market conservatives believe businesses almost always do the right thing, and that if simply left to their own devices, they will create a sort of perfectly efficient utopia in which all demands are met with supply, every problem is solved by an innovative entrepreneur or business, and no one is ever oppressed because only the government can oppress you. This last part about the government being the only institution with the power to oppress you is probably the single greatest blind spot of Reagan-worshipping free market capitalists.
And it’s pretty easy to see that when left to their own devices, businesses operating in a free market will not do what’s best for everyone. For instance, a long-held critique of Reaganomics from the left is that unregulated businesses don’t give a shit about the environment and will pollute and dump to their hearts’ content if the government doesn’t forbid them from doing so.
Free market conservatives, however, instead of simply admitting they don’t give a shit about the environment, often make the ridiculous argument that ackshually, businesses will naturally take better care of the environment because The Free Market is Jesus.
No. They will only care about the environment if it is profitable for them to do so.
Another example is labor costs: free marketers think businesses will care about wages if you simply removed government regulations.
No, they don’t care about wages: they care about profits. And everyone knows the single largest expenditure for businesses is labor. They are always and everywhere looking to cut costs and maximize profits, and when they can cut labor costs, they will.
This is why we have layoffs and outsourcing: if you can’t eliminate the job, find someone who will do it for cheaper.
If these big companies could, they would automate almost every job. Robots and AI are the ultimate cheap labor. But for now big companies have to settle for foreigners.
Before global free trade came around, companies were generally restricted to finding Americans who would do the jobs for cheaper. But now they’re not limited to just Americans: they can find Taiwanese kids in sweatshops who will do the job for way cheaper. Or they can move their plants to Mexico.
The ultimate example of post-Reagan neoliberal capitalism is Apple: Apple is the largest publicly traded company on earth with a market cap of $821 billion. Last year, before its more recent fall in share price, Apple became the first company to sport a trillion-dollar market cap. Yet Apple only directly employs about 50,000 workers here in the US. Foxconn, however–the Taiwanese company that makes Apple’s iPhones and iPads–employs over 800,000 people. And the reason Apple uses Foxconn is because they manufacture for dirt cheap.
(Walmart, in contrast to Apple, employs over 2 million people in the US. McDonald’s employs about 2 million Americans.)
So we’ve got a multinational megacorporation that is worth over $800 billion yet only employs about 50,000 people in the US. Apple is turning just stupid profits and the actual economic benefit to Americans in terms of jobs created is relatively tiny.
This is all because of the ideology of free market economics: just let businesses do whatever they want and trust that they act in America’s best interests.
It’s a faith-based ideology at heart. The Almighty Free Market will be our salvation.
But the past several years should show us all–especially conservatives–that big business is not our friend. The free market does not always get the best result for everyone.
Left to their own devices, companies will consolidate market share and power by gobbling up smaller competitors. They will cut labor costs by moving operations overseas, and they will use their might to lobby and influence Washington for favorable regulations and policies, which suppress, rather than encourage, competition.
We seem to have forgotten this sometime after the end of the first Roosevelt administration, but the primary tendency of unconstrained businesses is towards domination and monopoly. They don’t want competition, they want supremacy.
If the great Trust Buster himself Theodore Roosevelt came back to life and saw that the prevailing economic mindset among America’s modern day political class–especially among his Republican successors–was to simply sit back and allow companies to do whatever they want, under the presumption that businesses only ever act in our best interests and will never harm us, he would be furious. He would wonder if his time in the White House had been forgotten by history.
This all goes back to Reagan. His economic policies were anchored in the desire to fully unleash and unchain American businesses.
We did, and his philosophy took root among our political establishment. Neoliberal capitalism has been the dominant consensus of economic thinking in Washington for the past three decades. All of Reagans successors until Trump were disciples–yes, that includes Bill Clinton, and yes, that even includes Barack Obama, who made a lot of talk about the middle class and taxing the wealthy but ultimately presided over an economic recovery in which virtually all the gains went to the wealthy. From 2009-2017, big corporations saw their values and profits explode while regular Americans were largely forgotten.
It all goes back to Reagan.
I’m not saying we haven’t benefitted from neoliberal capitalism. We clearly have. Our economy is incredibly efficient, and costs on virtually all essential consumer goods have come down significantly over the past 35 years. Today the poorest Americans are much better off than the poorest Americans of prior generations. Today poor people have appliances, cellphones and even luxuries poor people of previous generations could have never dreamed of. Poor Americans today aren’t starving, instead they are actually more likely to be obese. We live in a land of plenty, and that is largely due to neoliberal capitalism that began under Reagan.
But it has all come at a great cost.
The bottom line is that increasingly, regular Americans—conservatives in particular—are out of options and at the mercy of the megacorporations, which they increasingly need to live normal lives. Nobody is self-sufficient anymore. We need big corporations for virtually everything.
The multinational megacorporations, after decades of plundering our economy, hoarding all the gains, importing millions of immigrants for cheap labor, and shipping millions more jobs overseas, are now actively oppressing those who dare speak out against them.
The megacorporations are out of control. This much we can agree on.
But when the question turns to, “How did we get here?” the uncomfortable truth for free market conservatives is that this all started under Ronald Reagan.
The rise of multinational corporations is a large part of the reason things have gotten so bad today—whether it be immigration, corporate censorship, the hollowing out of the economy, the greater concentration of wealth in the hands of the 1%, the rise of the banking cartel—and the modern multinational corporation is a product of free market (or supply side) economics, i.e. Reaganomics, neoliberalism.
We need small businesses. We need thriving families that are not buried in debt. We need strong communities characterized by high-trust, assimilation and shared values and institutions.
Multinational megacorporations have eroded much of that.
We must disabuse Mainstream Conservatives of their belief that the free market is always and everywhere wonderful, and that big business always has our best interests in mind.
This begins by deconstructing the Reagan Mythology.
We will never make any progress on breaking up the modern day trusts until we convince the Free Market Conservatives that businesses can be bad and that the Free Market does not always deliver what’s best for everyone.
Reagan himself would be horrified by what the Big Corporations are doing to conservatives today. Reagan may have been a neoliberal capitalist, but first and foremost he was for individual liberty and the constitution. That’s why he hated communism and the Soviet Union so much.
Reagan would recognize that today’s multinational megacorporations are the very tyrants we feared the government would become.
It’s time to leave Reaganomics in the past and get to Trust Busting before it’s too late.
The leftwing globalists always show their true colors eventually:
“Sweden’s ambassador to Hungary has received protests from the Hungarian government following Social Security Minister Annika Strandhäll’s incendiary tweet against Budapest’s policy to completely exempt mothers of four from taxes.
Strandhäll wrote that Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s demand for “more genuine Hungarian children” was offensive, “reeked of the 1930s” and effectively offset the benefits of feminism.
“What is happening in Hungary is alarming. Now Orban wants more ‘genuine’ Hungarian children to be born.The policy reeks of the 30s. A right-wing populist you need smokescreens for what this type of policy does to the independence women have been struggling for”, Strandhäll tweeted.”
But I thought declining birthrates in the West were a major problem?
According to the globalists, we need millions of migrants because we can’t increase our populations ourselves, organically.
In other words, because the native populations of Western nations are not reproducing adequately, we need migrants to ensure our populations increase at the same rates they did in the 20th century.
But when a nation like Hungary implements policies to increase birth rates in the native population, and expressly rejects the idea of importing migrants to increase the population, the globalists freak out.
Not importing migrants to replace your native population is Nazism, apparently.
The globalists are rarely so honest about their intentions: they want to ethnically cleanse white Western nations and replace their populations with third world migrants.
It was never about birthrates. It has always been about demographic replacement.
“Viktor Orban’s call for “Hungarian children” didn’t resonate well with the Swedish press, either. Sydsvenskan‘s columnist Sofia Nerbrand wrote that Orban “should be ashamed” of steps to stimulate childbirth in Hungary.
“Viktor Orban’s stated goal is that the Hungarian people will increase with the help of white Hungarian offsprings, not migrants,” Nerbrand wrote, calling this approach ‘unsavoury’. “Rhetoric and politics that put one’s own people first and shut out the others should have no place in today’s Europe.”
All but the most outlandish caricatures of modern leftwing globalists can parody their sheer lunacy. They are nearly impossible to parody because their actual, genuine statements equal and often surpass the parodies. You can’t tell the difference.
Globalists: “Your native population is growing too slowly. You need migrants.”
Orban: “What if we simply implement policies to increase the birthrate among our native population?”
Globalists: “No. That is not allowed. You MUST import millions of third worlders. Do not attempt to boost the birthrate among native Hungarians. Your population increase will come exclusively from migrants.”
They’re actually saying this now.
And how is this not ethnic cleansing?
They’re declaring that your population increase must come from African and Middle Eastern migrants alone, and that if Hungary attempts to boost birthrates among actual ethnic Hungarians, it is literal Nazism.
Fortunately Hungary doesn’t care what the globalists say:
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto called Strandhäll’s statement “unacceptable” and noted a big difference between Sweden and Hungary in terms of politics.
“Hungary spends money on families, while Sweden spends it on migrants”, Szijjarto said.
Europe now stands at a crossroads. Most of the major, Western European powers have already decided to take the path of open borders and political correctness, which will lead to multicultural oblivion.
Eventually one day, the Swedish people will be but a memory because their Feminist Government has decided that the future of their country is African and Middle Eastern migrants, not ethnic Swedes. Like the Phoenicians, the Celts and countless other ethnic groups no longer in existence due to conquest and displacement, the Swedes will exist only in the pages of history books.
But other nations, like Hungary, are rejecting this suicide pact foisted on them by powerful nations like Germany, as well as elite institutions and governing bodies like the EU and the UN.
The policy differences today between self-confident, nationalist countries like Hungary and suicidal globalist nations like Sweden will only become more apparent in the coming decades. But the time for choosing is now.
This is how it goes. First, the right accuses the left of wanting some policy goal (say, gun confiscation and repealing the Second Amendment) which the left pretty obvious wants. The left, however, knowing that said policy goal is wildly unpopular with the American people, vehemently denies they want the policy.
However, before long, the left will inevitably come out in favor of the policy goal they previously spent a good deal of energy denying they wanted.
Leftists in 2012: “Nobody wants to take your guns.”
Leftists in 2018: “Repeal the Second Amendment, and we’re coming for your guns”
This guy is definitely gonna wrestle your guns away from you:
Or maybe that’s a girl. I genuinely can’t tell.
At any rate, today, “We are coming for your guns” is the mainstream consensus position of the Democratic Party, even though several years back they vigorously denied it and claimed they supported and respected the Second Amendment.
When did they change their minds? Never: they’ve always wanted to confiscate all the guns and repeal the Second Amendment. The only difference now is that they feel safe showing their true colors.
It was the same thing with gay marriage: prominent Democrats insisted right up until the 2012 election that they opposed gay marriage and believed marriage was between a man and a woman. Then they all publicly came out in favor of gay marriage. They were always privately in favor it, and we on the right knew it all along, but by 2012 they felt as if it was politically safe for them to come out and admit it.
Socialism is another thing Democrats have always pretended to be against while privately being in favor. Then the proud and open socialist Bernie Sanders ran for President in 2016 and was quite popular, proving once and for all that, yes, Democrats are socialists. The party’s new face is Congresspersyn Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is proud to be a “democratic socialist”. Democrats are socialists. They’ve always been socialists, of course, but now they’re comfortable with admitting it.
And the Uniparty “media” claims we’re the ones who have taken an extreme turn.
The latest issue the Democrats are about to stop pretending to oppose is open borders. Someone named Farhad Manjoo wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times entitled, “There’s Nothing Wrong With Open Borders.” Remember the day January 16, 2019, because that’s the moment the Democratic Party took the first step toward formally and publicly supporting open borders (“formally and publicly” being the key words, because they’ve always been for open borders privately):
Here’s an excerpt:
“The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers.
Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel.
I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here.
Imagine not just opposing President Trump’s wall but also opposing the nation’s cruel and expensive immigration and border-security apparatus in its entirety. Imagine radically shifting our stance toward outsiders from one of suspicion to one of warm embrace. Imagine that if you passed a minimal background check, you’d be free to live, work, pay taxes and die in the United States. Imagine moving from Nigeria to Nebraska as freely as one might move from Massachusetts to Maine.
When you see the immigration system up close, you’re confronted with its bottomless unfairness. The system assumes that people born outside our borders are less deserving of basic rights than those inside. My native-born American friends did not seem to me to warrant any more dignity than my South African ones; according to this nation’s founding documents, we were all created equal. Yet by mere accident of geography, some were given freedom, and others were denied it.”
Fantastic reasoning: it’s “unfair” that most of the world was not born in America, the greatest country on earth. So let’s just let everyone in the world move to America!
This is how it starts. First an Op-Ed in the New York Times, then the rest of the Democratic Party elite will come out in favor of open borders. Right now, GOP virtue signalers and cucks are pushing back against the claim that the New York Times itself has formally come out for open borders, pointing out that it’s only an op-ed writer who has come out for open borders and he doesn’t necessarily speak for the NYT overall:
I mean, it’s someone writing an op-ed in the Times.
Come on. Stop denying what we all know to be true. I know Guy Benson and the rest of the Fake Republicans dream of one day writing for the New York Times, but this is just ridiculous.
Manjoo’s op-ed was the NYT testing the waters to see what kind of response it would get. If the response was negative, they could say, “Hey, it’s just an op-ed. Doesn’t mean it’s the official position of this newspaper. That’s one guy’s opinion. We just published it.”
But we all know better. Nobody publishes an op-ed unless they more or less agree with it. Outlets only provide platforms to those views which they seek to promote. Only a fool would believe otherwise. I know the disclaimer at the bottom of every op-ed says “this does not necessarily reflect the views of the paper at large,” but we all know what’s going on. The NYT very seldom runs op-eds by people who go against Uniparty dogma.
Eventually the NYTimes editorial board will formally announce the paper’s support of open borders. We all know it’s coming.
More to the point, we all know the left has always wanted open borders.
Now, they’re finally audacious enough to admit it.
What could be the next issue the left “evolves” on? Pedophilia. I’m serious. You don’t have to look very hard to find SJWs and freaks on Twitter trying to argue that there’s nothing wrong with pedophilia. And Twitter isn’t exactly doing much about it, either.
If you think it’s ridiculous that pedophilia could one day in the future (10-15 years down the road) come to be openly embraced by the left, consider that in 1985 it was also pretty inconceivable to think that the Democrats would in just under 30 years make support for gay marriage their party’s official stance.
Summed up, the process for Democratic “evolution” on issues is as follows:
“That’s ridiculous. Nobody wants x.”
“Okay, maybe some of us want x.”
“The Democratic Party now officially endorses x.”
“Anyone who opposes x is evil.”
Open borders is the next x. They’re about to go from, “You’re crazy. We don’t want open borders.” To: “Anyone who opposes open borders is racist.”
What will follow? It’s anyone’s guess. There are a number of contenders, including polygamy and pedophilia.
There’s also free healthcare and welfare for illegals (already happening in California and New York City), as well as voting rights for illegals, but I would say open borders automatically includes healthcare, welfare and voting for foreigners, no?
Another contender would be the War on Traditional Masculinity, but the American Psychological Association has already formalized the left’s opposition to that.
Perhaps they’ll come out in open support of white genocide next? “War on White People? Pfft. That’s absurd. White people have the most privilege!” Eventually, “Actually, the War on White People is Good and anyone who opposes it is Evil.”
The bottom line is that anything you suspect leftists truly want, they probably do, no matter how much they deny it.
Also, I keep seeing all this talk about how we need millions of foreign immigrants (presumably low-skilled ones) to combat our “population crisis” and ensure that we remain a nation with a steadily increasing population. From the Manjoo piece:
“Economically and strategically, open borders isn’t just a good plan — it’s the only chance we’ve got. America is an aging nation with a stagnant population. We have ample land to house lots more people, but we are increasingly short of workers. And on the global stage, we face two colossi — India and China — which, with their billions, are projected to outstrip American economic hegemony within two decades.”
Oh, no! Our GDP might not increase as much! Why is GDP the be-all, end-all? Why is GDP the measure of a nation’s worth.
Don’t get me wrong, to a large extent, GDP does tell you a good deal about the state of a given nation, but you can’t boil everything down to GDP.
“More people = more workers = more production = higher GDP = Everything Awesome” is how the globalist elite thinks.
We have a depraved culture of sex and hedonism, a crisis of masculinity, an opioid epidemic ravaging our communities, a spiritual and emotional void caused by superficial consumerism and obsession with entertainment, eroding family values and families themselves, and we are balkanizing into self-segregation along ethnic and racial lines.
And our elites think all we need is more immigrants to boost GDP.
On a related note, Britain apparently never got the memo that immigrants boost GDP. Britain’s GDP per capita (the measure that matters the most) declined by almost 20% in just four years primarily due to increased migration:
I’m pretty much resigned to the fact that we’re not getting the wall. It’s not just because the Democrats don’t want it but also because most Republicans don’t want it. Republicans—at least those that haven’t been fully converted to full-on “Diversity Is Our Strength!” cultural leftism after spending years enmeshed in DC—know deep down that we need the wall, it’s just that they rely too much on donations from corporate America and thus will either never allow it or just keep it far down on their priority list (the latter is effectively the former, just a more cowardly and corrupt way of going about it.)
We elected Trump to build the wall, drain the swamp and reclaim America from the corrupt globalist Uniparty, but it turns out the corrupt globalist Uniparty is simply too vast and powerful that not even the President of the United States can make a difference.
The only thing that can save America is a revolt like we’re seeing in France. I’m pretty much resigned to this fact by now.
I’m going to reiterate that I don’t want a revolt. I don’t want social upheaval and possible collapse.
I want peace and prosperity and America. I don’t want this country to be turned into a third world hellhole.
I just want what we voted for.
But the Uniparty is determined to prevent us from getting it, and at that point there’s really no other option for us, is there?
What is the last resort of people who are continually trampled and abused by their supposed public servants, who in reality have become rulers? When the elites have for all intents and purposes killed democracy, there’s only one other option.
We’ve almost lost the revolutionary spirit over the past few centuries because democracy has more or less worked for the vast majority of American history. Elections actually meant something and people had no need to revolt because democracy actually worked. You could actually achieve real, substantial change simply by voting.
But now the game is rigged. The outcome is predetermined. Trump sort of threw a monkey wrench into the Uniparty’s plan of continued dominance and higher profits for multinational corporations by winning the presidency but it turns out the presidency is just one part of the equation. The Uniparty still controls Congress, the federal bureaucracy (especially the Justice Department), and the media, and that’s enough to cancel out having Trump in the White House. They are able to hold him in check.
From the moment Trump was elected, and even before that, the Uniparty has sought to destroy Trump. Their mechanism for doing this centers on the false narrative of “Russian collusion” that they created in order to delegitimize Trump and, more importantly, launch an endless and boundless investigation into him in hopes of impeaching him. They all want it. The media talks daily with hope and delight about “the walls closing in” on Trump. Impeachment is so transparently their prime objective they don’t even really try to deny it.
Republican voters, don’t get mad at Trump. He’s the only one actually on our side. It’s just that it’s impossible for him to actually do what he said he would because the Uniparty is too pervasive and too powerful.
If you want to know what the Uniparty is just look at any image of the Obamas, Clintons and Bushes together. An example is Bush 41’s funeral: the Uniparty was assembled and in full display. The media was gushing. You’d never think the Bushes were Republicans given the way the media was singing their praises. But Trump made the media realize who its real enemy was, and also that the Bushes were basically on their side. Look at how they treated Trump: he was the unwanted guest, the Party Crasher. At least they invited him to 41’s funeral: McCain’s funeral they wouldn’t even let him attend. McCain’s funeral was strictly Uniparty.
Trump was the last best hope of defeating the Uniparty democratically and peacefully. And two years in it’s pretty clear that he is unable to do so.
Eventually it will come to revolt. I don’t know when, but it will. I’m sure of that. Because when voters don’t get what they voted for, they don’t just forget about it and give up. They get even angrier and their discontent with the status quo only gets worse.
Working on Capitol Hill for a member of Congress, I spent all day taking calls from constituents and the one thing I remember is that people were pissed. Super pissed. This was over four years ago and I don’t remember all the issues they called about specifically but the one constant theme was that people were at wits end over not getting what they voted for. Taking the House in 2010 midterms did nothing. Adding the Senate in the 2014 midterms got them nothing as well. They would always ask why the hell they keep giving Republicans more power in Washington and yet nothing changes.
In hindsight I should have seen Trump coming from a mile away after hearing from all those constituents day after day. They were fed up. They were done with getting shit on by Republicans who would promise the moon and deliver nothing. The callers correctly realized there was little difference between the Republicans and the Democrats: no matter who you voted for you always got the same thing. So of course they were going to take drastic measures and go with the outsider candidate to turn Washington on its head.
Those people haven’t just calmed down over the past few years. They haven’t given up. They haven’t simply accepted that they will keep getting the same Corporate-approved, politically correct globalist garbage shoved down their throats want no matter who they vote for.
They vote Republican and carry the party to power, and they expect to see results. They’re never going to be okay with the fact that they’re not allowed to simply get what they want. They weren’t okay with it in 2011, they weren’t okay with it in 2015 and they’re not okay with it now.
Maybe they could partly accept not getting what they wanted when the Republicans weren’t in full control of government, but were finishing up two years of full Republican control of the federal government and the people still haven’t gotten what they voted for. This is something they’re definitely not fine with. This is something they won’t tolerate. You can’t tell people who represent the majority that they still can’t get what they voted for. That does not go over well.
And yet somehow the Uniparty still believes the opposite is the case: the people will eventually learn to accept all this. Your country WILL be overrun with illegals and foreigners, your jobs WILL all be shipped overseas or taken by robots, and there is nothing you can do about it.
People can only take getting screwed over so much. They won’t just accept the fact that they’re powerless and don’t have a say in how their country is run.
And why on earth would they ever? They’re Americans for God’s sake. They know the history of their country. They know it was born of revolution and rebellion against tyranny. Sure the Uniparty is trying to erase their history and ruin their past by stigmatizing all their heroes as RAAAAAACISTS, but people still have that sense of American don’t-take-no-shit independence.
We know who we are.
Americans are hardwired to reject tyranny. We just are. This country was founded on the idea that we don’t have to take crap from some ruler. Try as the Uniparty might, it cannot stamp out the American spirit of self governance. It can never turn red-blooded Americans into passive subjects who will simply accept that do not have a say in how their country is run.
People who historically have known nothing but self-governance and freedom will not simply wilt into downtrodden peasants who accept the top-down dictates of their self-appointed ruling class. It’s just not gonna happen.
Sooner or later the Uniparty will push the American people to their breaking point.
This, of course, is a major reason the Uniparty has been working so hard for so long to import an entirely new electorate of foreigners who are more accustomed to obeying a ruling class in exchange for handouts and benefits.
But the Uniparty will fail. I’m sure of this.
So whenever you see Uniparty elites celebrating this victory or that over Trump, just know that one day they will have their comeuppance. Don’t get caught up in the daily manufactured drama of Failure Theater, whereby Republicans talk a big game of finally putting their feet down and doing what they’ve been promising to do for years, yet end up folding at the last minute, giving Democrats everything they wanted and getting no concessions whatsoever. Don’t fall for the act.
It’s simply the Uniparty trying to trick you into believing there isn’t a Uniparty aligned against your interests. The outcome of whatever they were pretending to disagree over was never in doubt. That’s just to maintain the illusion that the parties actually disagree and that there is a reason to continue voting.
Each time they thwart or obstruct Trump, it is only hastening their downfall.
Each time they deny us what we voted for, it only further solidifies the fact that the people will rise up and stop playing their rigged game.
The rules were written down clearly at the beginning: the people will govern themselves. They will not be subjects of a ruling class, in fact just the opposite will be true: the elected officials will be public servants of the people.
But somewhere along the way the whole thing was flipped and the public servants became the rulers while the public became the servants.
And so because the rulers stopped playing by the rules, it won’t be long before the people do the same.
