This is the worse I have seen things in America in my 65 years, and unless the American people soon take things in their own hands and put an end to this administration’s folly, they’ll see America as they have known it all their life come to an end. I’m not suggesting all out rebellion, at least not yet; but some good ol’ fashioned civil disobedience is in order.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if some oil executive and a group of shareholders moved to extract oil offshore against Biden’s current ban and in violation of “federal law”? What if they told Biden, we’re going to do this because we need to make a living and this is our area of expertise? Just exactly what would Biden do, what could he do? Send out the Navy to stop them?
Yes, we have to stop allowing elected officials do us harm in areas where we have done no wrong, especially when it comes to making our own way in the world and surviving as we simply try to live the best lives possible.
Maybe when matters become bad enough and people finally realize just how terrible the Democratic Party path is for everyday life, maybe then Americans will push back hard enough to restore something much more akin to true and righteous liberty in America. ~ J.O.S.
~ It’s Not Going To Fuckin’ Be Okay ~
American conservatives have long recognized the true intent of the Democratic Party was to destroy America, as we watched the slow slog from the 1960s when the radicals were just getting better organized and preparing for the long war. And now we are nearly held hostage under this illegitimate Biden regime, as we angrily witness that the slow slog of the 60s has now turned into a break-neck downhill slalom of destruction across the board in every important sector of country’s economic engine, as the seeds that were planted to subvert and end the republic have manifested themselves in the energy infrastructure, the supply chain, the food supply, and our currency.
Most Americans know virtually every path and wrong decision that have been the primary drivers bringing us to the current state of crisis we find America now facing, whether it was the strife and violence of the Weather Underground, Black Lives Matter and Antifa or the Cloward and Pivens plan to overload the system with massive debt and the succession of purposefully destructive policies, that led into 2018 and the emergence of the super-radicals, such as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who led the charge for the New Green Deal idiocy — once thought to be a fringe policy idea — that Joe Biden has fully embraced, in a nod to the most radical segment of Congress.
On February 13th 2019, I wrote:
“At the heart of the New Communists’ plan is a focus on renewable energy and the notion that they can move the nation completely away from the use of fossil fuel over the next decade. Electricity would triple in cost, and gasoline could easily rise to $6 per gallon, or more, just to reach fifty percent renewable energy, according to many independent studies … . If actually implemented, their plan will economically cripple the United States, even if it was gradually implemented over the next thirty years.”
Now here we are in the middle of an energy crisis that is driving all the other crises and the spiking costs of everything anyone wants to buy, as today’s [June 16th] listed average cost of diesel fuel across America stands at $5.786 per gallon, a full $2.50 higher than it was at this time last year — a 76 percent increase from last year.
Diesel fuel runs the locomotives and the eighteen wheelers that are the primary shippers of all commodity items in America, and when their costs rise in so exorbitant a manner, try as they might to keep costs low, they eventually have no choice but to pass the cost along to the consumer. This same dynamic is in motion on our country’s farms that must have diesel fuel for their tractors and combine harvesters.
As reported by Tyler Durden recently, Ohio farmer Holly Weilnau spoke quite forcefully on the inflated costs farmers are enduring at the moment, exclaiming:
“There are things that we have to buy. There’s something we have to buy that two years ago cost us $24, last year was about $46, this year it is costing us $96.
Please understand, food prices are going to go up. You wanna act like it’s the farmers’ fault — it is not the farmers’ fault. We are barely making it to grow the stuff so you guys are able to get it in August, September, October.
Guys, this is not going away. Stop sticking your head in the sand and thinking ‘oh, it’s going to be okay — it’s not going to fuckin’ be okay.”
And, in a previous video, Ms Weilnau told of another farmer who had been unable to get a fixed rate for his diesel fuel for this fall, due to the uncertainty caused by the skyrocketing diesel prices, noting:
“That alone guys — to fill the tractors and the equipment needed to get the product out of the field — is going to be astronomically bad all the way around. So understand, people are like, ‘Oh, plan ahead’ — we’re trying. They’re not letting us.”
In April 2022, phosphorous fertilizer was at $1047 per ton. The same fertilizer was just over $400 in September of 2020 and $638 per ton in April of last year.
Adding to the lunacy, it’s simply astounding to know that the Biden administration is also currently paying farmers to let their farmlands lay fallow, unused and growing nothing, especially as the situation in America grows more dire by the day.
In the meantime, Biden and his spokespeople feign outrage and engage in a tin of bad kabuki theater, writing scathing letters to the oil companies and demanding more gas production, when from the very beginning they were all open about their desire to destroy fossil fuels in America. And then, maddening as it is to hear, Biden presents himself as America’s hero for “[leading] the largest release from the global oil reserves in history” — it’s actually the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve but try telling that fool the same, and still it barely dented the price of gasoline by mere pennies on the gallon. This from a liar-in-chief who has done everything he could to obstruct the production of oil and gas from his first day in office.
In a letter sent to Biden on the evening of June 15th 2022, both the American Petroleum Institute and American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers responded to a letter Biden had sent seven major U.S. oil companies, in part, as follows:
“Refiners do not make multi-billion-dollar investments based on short-term returns. They look at long-term supply and demand fundamentals and make investments as appropriate. To that end, following on your campaign promises to ‘end fossil fuel,’ consider just some of the policy and investment signals being sent by various federal agencies and allied state governments to the market about our refining industry.
The timing and reasons for shutdowns of several refineries, including the Philadelphia Energy Solutions and Shell Convent refineries, were primarily due to the lack of buyers willing to continue operating the facilities as petroleum refineries given growing rhetoric about the long-term viability of the industry.”
None of this really matters to Biden, since he could care less about the pain his policies are causing, as he admitted the high prices are by design during his May visit with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo, where he said the “secret” part out loud that most of us already intuitively knew before ever seeing all the statistics and facts. Revealing his true agenda, Red Joe stated:
“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”
The problem is that Biden’s regime doesn’t have anything in place to effectively and efficiently take the place of oil. Essentially, everything related to green energy and renewables is sketchy and extremely unreliable; even electric cars require energy from fossil fuels when they need recharging. There’s nothing ready for any real transition, as we’re about to find out when the rolling black outs start appearing across the country, contributing to the deaths of thousands, perhaps millions, of Americans during the hottest and coldest months of the year; but then, what’s a few million dead Americans to the Democratic Party death cult that concerns itself only with holding power at all costs.
Our current extremely high inflation rate and the rising costs of everything — grocery prices up 12 percent over last year — from a loaf of bread to cars and houses is being driven by the current shortage of fuel and its rising cost, not the war in Ukraine, not anything Putin has done. This is strictly Red Joe’s baby, as he and his red, radical cronies cry for the release of trillions of more dollars into the economy, in the guise of child care subsidies and green energy initiatives and carbon tax credits, which will further stoke the flames of inflation already set in motion by his $1.9 trillion Covid Relief Package on top of the previous two trillion passed for Covid relief during Trump’s presidency.
Although the official rate of inflation is 8.5 percent, once one looks at the economy and the Consumer Price Index in greater detail, the real rate of inflation is somewhere between 17 and 20 percent, according to several economic experts. May’s CPI revealed the largest jump in prices during this new inflation cycle and the highest CPI numbers since 1981, and this too is somewhat deceptive, since the CPI has been altered over the past few decades and used by government officials to hide the severity of inflation. Using the old CPI formula from the 1970s, today’s CPI is higher than 17 percent, a historically high number for the record.
Whatever increase in wages Americans received after the pandemic are now being eaten up by the rising cost of everything.
Joe Biden’s brand of capitalism is a tightly regulated system that stifles productivity and economic growth and redistributes U.S. wealth to Americans and foreigners alike, and somehow, despite the current rejection of his policies and trends showing a Republican retaking of the House in November, the Democrats seem unconcerned. They have done the damage, so much so that it is almost certain our economy can do nothing but continue on its downward spiral, and they truly believe that when things become so bad, that they will be able to convince and coerce the largest percentage of America to follow them into a full blown socialist state, as the young commies like Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep advancing the need to abandon the free market ideology that they mistakenly see as “imperialistic” and oppressive to the poor and people of color.
Just as President George Bush convinced too many Americans that they had to abandon capitalism “temporarily” in order to save it in 2008, the Democrats believe if the system can be overloaded enough to cause it to crash completely, regardless of whether a Republican or Democrat administration is holding the reins of government, it ultimately serves the purpose of the Democratic Party Communists and will see them emerge as the leaders of a new one party system and in control of all the land and resources in America. They’re counting on weakening Americans financially, physically and spiritually enough to make this possible.
No one should be surprised when some food items will cost twice as much as they do now by October of this year with many millions of people who are near, at or already below the poverty line facing starvation. Don’t be surprised to find food lines at the soup kitchens, missions and food banks not seen since the Great Depression, if this march into madness continues.
Those of us who wish to remain free will need to work with one another inside our respective communities to survive and take steps to see that a truly free market system emerges from the ashes, rather than this fascist economic system headed by an unconstitutional and illegal Federal Reserve Bank we have suffered for over 100 years, as it has created each boom and bust cycle leading up to where we now stand.
No, this inflation isn’t transitory, and Jerome Powell and the Federal Reserve Bank aren’t going to be able to do enough to stop this runaway inflation and economic pain anytime soon, no matter how much he raises rates.
Even as the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite fell into a bear market by dropping nearly 22 percent, Joe Biden was apparently in the throes of one massive delusion as he still protests to America that we have made historic economic gains and “the fastest growing economy” as a country. He’s flat out lying, in denial and wrong, when he suggests out-of-control Congressional spending isn’t the problem and says that he’s tired of hearing about high spending causing inflation, when everyone with the slightest economic acumen absolutely understands it does. But he goes right on pretending that Americans aren’t in real trouble, when the truth reveals many Americans can’t afford to eat or pay for gas; they are having to decide whether to buy groceries or pay their electric bill, as the baby formula in this country is under lock and key and our nation seems to be being driven into a Third World status with empty grocery shelves across the country. And our food shortage is going to get worse, primarily due to fuel and the rising cost and recent shortages of fertilizer — this is just the start of things.
Nearly every conservative and independent cogent-thinking American knows that a great part of the solution is found in the government removing all current arbitrary obstacles to oil exploration and extraction in America and supporting the oil industry, as well as the coal, nuclear, wind and solar energy industries, through consistent U.S. policy. And get those pipelines going, finishing and opening Keystone and Minnesota’s Line 3, as well as other pipelines that were stopped by Biden radicals; reopen the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska for oil exploration and extraction; reopen offshore drilling.
America is sitting on more oil reserves than any other nation in the world, and all of what we now endure has been so unnecessary, except for the fact this is what Red Joe and the Democratic Party Communists insisted we must do. They insisted on shutting down fossil fuels for some fantasy Green Utopia that no one will ever see in this lifetime, supposedly to make us “energy independent”, as they have selectively forgotten we were energy independent under President Trump’s administration, for obvious reasons. And now — acting for show or due to a lunatic fit — Biden is going on his knees begging for oil from the Organization of Oil Exporting Countries (OPEC), as his Build Back Better policies have made it impossible for our nations bulldozers, tractors and combine harvesters and locomotives to run the hours necessary to keep our economy’s engine running at peak efficiency.
America is witnessing what happens when an enemy to Her principles and founding sits in power over the country and all legal checks and balances are incapable and failing to stop an assault on the nation, because our institutions have been infiltrated by their apparatchiks.
The American people are currently suffering under the worse economic plans in Her history, and death by Biden. Red Joe and his corrupt, radical, anti-American cronies are killing America’s economy, according to plan, and they’re killing America along with it.
Sure. Raise hell everywhere one can, from the local mayor’s office to Congress and the White House to attempt to get these red, radicals to finally see reason and actually change course, by peaceful means, tho’ we may be more angry than ever before. But, as their policies keep speeding us down the path to becoming Venezuela and we start seeing our people reduced to “equality” in the lowest common denominator in extreme poverty, just to serve their agenda and a hard push towards communism, all American patriots must now be prepared to also fight these anti-American commie bastards to the death to stop them, if and when it proves necessary, because anyway one looks at it, death goes hand in hand with Red Joe’s policies.
