The Brink of Lexington
Or St. Petersburg?
We are no doubt in revolutionary times, it’s just a matter of which sort of revolution it will be. If one imagines Washington DC as King George, distant, hostile, arrogant, unresponsive to the needs of the people and unwilling to pass laws that benefit them, taking their money and spitting on the ground, one might better understand the absolute volcanic response of the Washington establishment to the removal of McCarthy from the Speaker’s chair. That was the people, average citizens, throwing tea into Boston harbor. That was rebellion egged on by the colonists finally disrupting the crown, this time in Washington DC.
It is, in some respect, an amazing time to be alive, to watch a powerful nation brought to its knees by sheer stupidity and avarice, thrashing about now with foreign troops (FBI) sent out to intimidate the colonists.
Then, there’s the comparison to Russia, broke from the First World War, weak from the losses and demoralization of the troops. Infused by communists in many government offices and their refusal to recognize the Tsar (Trump) as the head of government, when he was, and a refusal to recognize the voices of the people in terms of elections. The only question to be raised is whether the people will rise up like 18th Century patriots or lay down like Russian peasants.
Like many, I have long wondered what conditions brought about the 1917 Revolution in Russia, why it could not be stopped, why the danger was not foreseen. Now I know that it was and it was railed against, because the obvious flaws in their design were known, even then. I read a book not long ago, Volume II of the selected works of Maxim Gorky that delightfully illustrated the people, the times and the means by which the Bolshevik Revolution was effected. It was a series of works that told the story from the ground level, where we would find ourselves some hundred years later.
While the conditions, then to now, are not identical, the forces behind the means are very similar. Power and wealth at the expense of the weakest, the poorest seems to be a common thread. The appearance of authority over the fact of it, impressing the peasants with matching uniforms and shiny buttons with nothing, in fact, behind it, because the government (the constitution in this case) had been dissolved. It was really a question of whether the people would recognize their bogus authority or kill them with rocks. But poverty is its own oppressor, its own bully and the longer one is poor, the more likely one is to accept whatever comes their way. Even in the small villages the Bolshevik Revolution didn’t leap upon the people and drag them down into hell overnight. It was a sure, persistent objective obtained as they got around to it; as it will be here.
Of course, it could blow up over night, like at Lexington, but more likely it will be a steady grind down to nothing.
Here’s how I know the decision is upon us. The federal law enforcement apparatus is comfortable enough to target school board meetings and pro-life protesters in clear violation of the First Amendment, so they are signaling that the constitution is no longer in play, that’s the gist of the message. They manufactured a riot out of a peaceful protest simply to arrest Trump supporters. They hoped it would break their support of Trump and it worked in some cases. When one looks at Trump, all that he’s going through, you only have to understand that it’s a desperate attempt to get his supporters to break away, to turn their backs. Knowing that, when it is openly broadcast that the FBI has designated Trump supporters as domestic violent extremists one can see through their ploy. Despite the fact that other than the orchestrated fedsurrection of January 6th, there has never been any riot at any of the hundreds of Trump rallies in excess of tens of thousands present. Any disturbance at all was instigated by the feds or their useful idiots, Antifa or BLM. It only takes sustained support to frustrate their efforts and that’s all I care about.
A few other things are part of this, though. One is funding for Ukraine. You have to understand the massive political funding structure that has been built around aid to Ukraine to get why that’s so important to the people in congress. In fact, knowing these cowards and criminals, the war in Ukraine might have been instigated to facilitate the money laundering and/or to cover up evidence of past corruption.
It works like this: Congress passes spending bills that fund Ukraine aid, that aid goes to Ukraine, buys a few weapons systems and such to pay off political donors in the arms business, but most of it winds up in the pockets of Ukrainian politicians, who take their cut and then move the rest of the funds to international NGOs, probably administered by globalist billionaires hostile to America and those NGOs fund either the illegal immigration convoys being built and assembled in UN-run bases in South America or it goes to NGOs that contribute to political action committees that will provide funds to those who vote for aid to Ukraine. It’s a closed loop of funding.
This is why you saw the vitriol explode out of lobbyists on “K” street over the ouster of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House and why they sent their bought-off minions into the spotlight to cry foul. Not only had McCarthy assembled a consensus on a debt ceiling deal that was passed through the House, that included a big aid package to Ukraine, but had other budget limitations that interfered with the Democrat objectives, he went into negotiations with Biden and the Senate with the strongest political support from the people. Seventy-five percent (75% ) of those polled either wanted to keep the debt ceiling in place, or to enact the Republican bill. McCarthy promptly folded this hand in favor of everything the big donors wanted. He was a “K” street hero from then on. All he had to do was bury the hatchet in the backs of everyone in the Republican caucus in the House. When he did that, he was a “K” street legend, but those betrayed by him didn’t forget and when he did essentially the same thing on the Continuing Resolution, Matt Gaetz exposed him and led the charge to hasten McCarthy’s downfall. This was a feat that had never been accomplished in the history of the United States and that fact led to McCarthy’s arrogance and insolent betrayal, secure in the knowledge that it could not or would not be done. He was wrong.
Aid to Ukraine is how they intend to fund the 2024 election for all of those Democrats and Republicans who have long since given up on their fidelity to the constitution and the rule of law and just try to figure out who they have to stab to get what they want. Usually, that’s easy to determine, it’s their constituents, but now they need that aid to Ukraine and the easy way has been yanked from their reach and they’re angry. But not so much at Gaetz, as one might think, but at the people who support Gaetz with donations, because Gaetz doesn’t take PAC funds or Lobbyist money. They can’t get to him any better than they could get to Trump, because he’s funded by $20-30 donations from real people and outside the funding loop. Washington works on corruption and Gaetz doesn’t play.
Now, the beast is wounded and it sees the people, at least half of the nation, as the enemy. So much so that they brought out Hillary Clinton to describe Trump supporters as people in need of “reprogramming.” They need to be held in camps and reprogrammed. That’s a completely Bolshevik thing to say. It’s a Stalinist attitude about the voters who, in her mind, betrayed her in 2016.
While all of this is important to understand, how far down the nation has fallen politically, there are worse reasons why this government cannot stand, not for much longer, anyway.
In less than a month, weeks actually, the debt rose from $33 trillion to $33.5 trillion. Where did that $500 billion come from? Where was it hiding? In what corner of the building was it sequestered waiting for a chance to be acknowledged? That is astonishing, but it isn’t the problem. Not knowing where it came from or why it was dumped into the debt out of nowhere is. No news networks mentioned it, no tweets went out to acknowledge it. Half a trillion dollars of debt just appeared on the ledger overnight.
(I know this is tedious, I apologize)
Now that inflation has driven the bond prices lower with unacceptable interest rates and the banks are full to overflowing with unrealized debts in the trillions of dollars and no one wants to buy the bonds, the federal reserve will have to do it. How will they buy those bonds no one wants? They’ll print money. What happens when the federal reserve prints money? It inflates the cost of goods. How do you manage inflation? You raise interest rates. And the snake consumes its own tail.
As this continues, inflation rises, interest rates rise and the government consumes more and more of the available credit to pay the interest on the debt which is now closing in on $1 trillion a year on the $33 trillion debt, just the interest, that $1 trillion buys nothing, not a piece of paper, a pencil or a soldier’s boot, it just buys time.
How does one finance a piece of equipment or the costs of expansion for their business to grow when those loans cost upwards of twice or three times what they did in 2020? If the federal government hasn’t already consumed the funds that they would borrow? They don’t, so the economy is stalled into neutral, workers are not hired, they are laid off, because the companies that can’t keep up with demand lose business. Thus, tax receipts are reduced, which increases the debt, because the $5 trillion they expected to take in to help pay for the $7 trillion they need to spend to get their kickbacks from the defense industry and pay for government workers who will vote the way they want, turns out to be only $4 trillion moving the deficit to $3 trillion rather than the $987 billion it was in 2019.
As an example, since the debt ceiling deal went through, the deficit is now $1.5 trillion, but it was promised that it would not exceed $1 trillion. It’s now on its way to $2 trillion and that or greater amounts will be sustained forever, because so much of the deal McCarthy made allowed for the creation of new programs and entitlements (like paying up to $4,400 per illegal immigrant family) that will never go away, not without a counter-revolution. We are here, because they already effected a revolution. To get away from this reckless spending, there will have to be a counter-revolution.
None of this is reversible, no matter who is in office or what party they represent. It might be mitigated if there was some interest in fiduciary responsibility in congress, but there isn’t. Fiscal responsibility was the primary issue when Gaetz led the charge to vacate the chair. The vitriol expressed after that happened demonstrated the lack of will to address this unending and ultimately nation-crushing debt.
They are spending the United States into oblivion and taking its people with it. Right now, due to the vacant Speaker’s position, no one is feeding the monster and it’s getting angry. The people it blames for its hunger are the Trump supporters who supported Gaetz. Instead of being a little introspective and doing the right thing, they’re just demanding to be fed.
It can’t last.
The other existential aspect of the current situation that will lead, and I would suggest purposely, to the demise of the United States, at least as a political framework for the governance of America, is the unending, out-of-control flood of illegals at the border. Among them are military-age men and some of them are foreign troops. There are thousands and thousands of Chinese who have come in through the southern and northern borders. There are people who claim to be paid by the United Nations who have entered the United States through the same route, because they don’t have to provide identification and they don’t have to be truthful about where they will be living or what they intend to do here. The child sex trafficking and human trafficking along with massive amounts of deadly fentanyl are side hustles of the Mexican cartels, but the greater threat and the greater treason is in allowing these foreign fighting men to enter and disappear to wait for instructions on what to sabotage, or what to bomb. Theoretically, they have access to arms and explosives shipped into our ports and accessible when the signal is given.
No nation survives that, not without open hostility, but our military is already captured.
The final threat I will highlight, though not the only one that exists, is the looming confrontation with Russia. The war in Ukraine is too big of a money laundering operation for the corrupt legislators to recognize that the war is already lost. They don’t care how many Ukrainians die in the process, as long as they can keep up the illusion that it’s being waged for some noble purpose. It will, eventually lead to a direct war with Russia that we will lose, because it is likely to involve nuclear war for the simple fact that Putin has threatened that possibility and none of the American military or politicians consider that a real threat. As Mike Vanderbough said in our film Lies of Omission, “it’s possible, because no one thinks that it is.”
Our problem, as a nation, is who is it that has the ability to launch a counterstrike? Biden? Does the military take the order to launch nukes from Joe Biden? Will they launch on the orders of someone who is not in the chain of command? Barack Obama, perhaps, or if he’s busy will it be Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice? Whose biometrics are keyed into the system?
So, truly, we are all bugs on the big blue marble. What will we have to face in the coming months now that they’re calling for all patriotic Americans to be rounded up and put into reprogramming camps? Will we survive until the economic collapse? Will we be killed by foreign soldiers on our own soil? Will some states recognize that their survival as a state requires their rebellion from the lunatics in Washington, or will they cooperate and attack their own citizens? If so, how do we respond? Or will we get obliterated in a sudden flash?
It just seems to me that 90% of these concerns would not be entertained were Trump to have prevailed in 2020. All of it is a direct result of a stolen election allowing a whole cadre of treasonous excrement to rise to the highest levels of the United States Government. Many of them would have been exposed and removed in 2021 and that’s why the election turned out the way it did.
Granted, we could always fight for it, ignore all of those officious authorities that surround us now and just go to the mats, but I’ve seen nothing of that spirit to date. If I were to bet, and I truly hate to say this, I think we will more likely suffer the fate of Russian peasants rather than rise to the cause of freedom like the colonists.
