This nation is in a vice. Some on the inside might not feel it like those on the outside, who’re subject to the iron jaws against flesh and bone, but we’re all there. Those turning the handle, cranking it down, feel nothing. The force from immigration is no different than the force of inflation. The force of corruption is no different than the force of perversion. They all work to tighten the screw.
The interesting thing about this point in American history is that you don’t have to agree with anything, you can stay at home and mind your own business and it won’t make a difference. The monsters have all escaped and the American people are simply points targets in a bigger game.
Inflation is irresistible for many of the reasons in this post (h/t Westernrifleshooters) it’s simply a game that has gone on too long, with too many cheating players. Like the bank in Monopoly, the fed can never run out of money, no matter what it ultimately calls “money” just to control the game. But all the most brilliant economists can do now, other than shake their heads, is repeat the mantra, “there’s nowhere to go.” The brilliant political move of isolating the Ruble has done nothing but devalue the dollar.
How long does it take to run out of discretionary spending in your home when the price of goods outpaces not only any possible raises, but the devalued dollar at the same time? In one hand, the shaving cream you purchased two weeks ago now costs twice as much and you have to pay for it with dollars that are worth half what they were. Yes, you can grow a beard, but its spread across the market and growing scarce. “You will eat nothing and be happy.” How can it all go so badly to quickly? It hasn’t. This has been coming since the 2008 banking crisis, the minute George Bush didn’t have the guts to let the banks crash, he simply put it on a hair trigger a few decades in the future.
Those in the Trump White House understood how to keep the ball rolling, kudos for that, but that’s all they would have had time for, even if he had not felt the iron jaws of the
corruption end of the vice.
The famine is baked in, the economic crash that should have happened in 2008 and only benefitted from getting bigger and more devastating in the meantime, is baked in. Cultural suicide has been ongoing since the 1960s and its just more remarkable now that its not done out of innocence, but out of bullying cynicism.
Where does one hide from a meteor? A planet-killer? These are the questions Americans should be asking themselves when they bother to look out the window at all. It doesn’t matter what constellation the meteor comes from, it’s going to destroy everything and all it took was Joe to have the guts to challenge both Russia and China to a battle of wits.
Michael Yon, typically a pretty sensible and logical thinker, sees a real possibility of nuclear war as a result of the devalued dollar not being able to pay off the nation’s debts even over time, even if they all stopped now and when the US is no longer the prime reserve currency, no one will buy another dime of bonds. To avoid bankruptcy, $500 billion in manufactured currency will have to be spent just to make the payment on the debt, wait ‘til the Venezuelan Bolivar starts to outpace the dollar, then see how easy it is to finance a war, even if it’s to defend the nation from the bigger kids on the block.
Biden played his role in the great reset. Now it’s our turn, what will we choose, destitution, imprisonment and slavery or resistance to the mad entourage of Joe Biden?
I was hoping for rifle shooting news at westernrifleshooters.us. Do you have matches?
Hopefully the next congress will take steps to rein in the economic death spiral. It's up to us to make them behave.
