what the left did to our country

friday, september 15th, 2023

In the last 20 years, the Left has boasted that it has gained control of most of American institutions of power and influence -- the reporting media, corporate boardroom, media, Silicon Valley, Wall Street, the administrative state, all of academia, foundations, social media, entertainment, professional sports, and Hollywood.

With such support, between 2009-17, Barack Obama was empowered to transform the Democratic Party from its middle-class roots and class concerns into the party of the bicoastal rich and subsidized poor—obsessions with big money, race, a new intolerant green religion, and dividing the country into a binary of oppressors and oppressed.

The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them.

The Obamas entered the presidency spouting the usual leftwing boilerplate (“spread the wealth,” “just downright mean country,” “get in their face,” “first time I’ve been proud of my country”) as upper-middle-class, former community activists, hurt that their genius and talents had not yet been sufficiently monetized.

After getting elected through temporarily pivoting to racial ecumenicalism and pseudo-calls for unity, they reverted to form and governed by dividing the country. And then the two left the White House as soon-to-be mansion living, mega-rich elites, cashing in on the fears they had inculcated over the prior eight years.

To push through the accompanying unpopular agendas of an open border, mandatory wind and solar energy, racial essentialism, and the weaponization of the state, Obama had begun demonizing his opponents and the country in general: America was an unexceptional place. Cops were racist. “Clingers” of the Midwest were hopelessly ignorant and prejudiced. Only fundamental socialist transformation could salvage a historically oppressive, immoral, and racist nation.

The people finally rebelled at such preposterousness. Obama lost his party some 1,400 local and state offices during his tenure, along with both houses of Congress. His presidency was characterized by his own polarizing mediocrity. His one legacy was Obamacare, the veritable destruction of the entire system of a once workable health insurance, of the hallowed doctor-patient relationship, and of former easy access to competent specialists.

The Left is coming for our Rights.

Yet Obama’s unfufilled ambitions set the stage for the Biden administration—staffed heavily with Obama veterans—to complete the revolutionary transformation of the Democratic Party and country.

It was ironic that while Obama was acknowledged as young and charismatic, nonetheless a cognitively challenged, past plagiarist, fabulist, and utterly corrupt Joe Biden was far more effective in ramming through a socialist woke agenda and altering the very way Americans vote and conduct their legal system.

Stranger still, Biden accomplished this subversion of traditional America while debilitated and often mentally inert—along with being mired in a bribery and influence-peddling scandal that may ultimately confirm that he easily was the most corrupt president to hold office in U.S. history.

How was all this possible?

Covid had allowed the unwell Biden to run a surrogate campaign from his basement as he outsourced his politicking to a corrupt media.

Senility proved a godsend for Biden. His cognitive disabilities masked his newfound radicalism and long-accustomed incompetence. Unlike his past failed campaigns, the lockdowns allowed Biden to be rarely seen or heard—and thus as much liked in the abstract as he had previously been disliked in the concrete.


His handlers, the Obamas, and the Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren radical Democrats, saw Biden’s half-century pretense as a gladhander—good ole Joe Biden from Scranton—as the perfect delivery system to funnel their own otherwise-unpopular leftwing agendas. In sum, via the listless Biden, they sought to change the very way America used to work.

And what a revolution Biden’s puppeteers have unleashed in less than three years.

They launched a base attack on the American legal system. Supreme Court judges are libeled, their houses swarmed, and their lives threatened with impunity. The Left promised to pack the court or to ignore any decision it resents. The media runs hit pieces on any conservative justice deemed too influential. The prior Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer whipped up a mob outside the court’s doors, and threatened two justices by name. As Schumer presciently put it, they would soon “reap the whirlwind” of what they supposedly had sowed and thus would have no idea what was about to “hit” them.

Under the pretense of Covid fears, balloting went from 70 percent participation on election day in most states to a mere 30 percent. Yet the rates of properly rejected illegal or improper ballots often dived by a magnitude of ten.

Assaults now followed on hallowed processes, laws, customs, and institutions—the Senate filibuster, the 50-state union, the Electoral College, the nine-justice Supreme Court, Election Day, and voter IDs.

The police state isn’t coming, it’s already here. The signs are everywhere. And once you recognize them, your senses will be heightened to the danger we’re all in.

Under Biden, the revolution had institutionalized first-term impeachment, the trial of an ex-president while a private citizen, and the indictment of a chief political rival and ex-president on trumped up charges by local and federal prosecutors—all to destroy a political rival and alter the 2024 election cycle.

Biden destroyed the southern border—literally. Eight million entered illegally—no background checks, no green cards, no proof of vaccinations. America will be dealing with the consequences for decades. Mexico was delighted, receiving some $60 million in annual remittances, while the cartels were empowered to ship enough fentanyl to kill 100,000 Americans a year.

“Modern monetary theory,” the Leftist absurdity that printing money ensures prosperity, followed. It has nearly bankrupted the country, unleashed wild inflation, and resulted in the highest interest rates in a quarter-century. Middle-class wages fell further behind as a doddering Biden praised his disastrous “Bidenomics.”

Biden warred on fossil fuels, cancelling federal leases and pipelines, jawboning lending agencies to defund fracking, demonizing state-of-the-art, clean-burning cars, and putting vast areas of oil- and gas-rich federals lands off-limits to drilling.

FBI: our focus is quickly shifting. We're now going after all "domestic terrorists".

When gas prices predictably doubled under Biden and the 2022 midterms approached, he tried temporarily to lease out a few new fields, to drain the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, and to beg the Saudis, and our enemies, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, and the Russians, to pump more oil and gas that Biden himself would not. All this was a pathetic ruse to temporarily lower gas prices before the mid-term elections.

Biden abandoned Afghanistan, leaving the largest trove of military equipment behind in U.S. military history, along with thousands of loyal Afghans and pro-American contractors.

Biden insulted the parents of the 13 Marines blown up in this worst U.S. military debacle since Pearl Harbor. He lied to the parents of the dead that he too lost a son in the Iraq war, and when among them later impatiently checked his watch as he seemed bored with the commemoration of the fallen—and made no effort to hide his sense that the ceremony was tedious to him.

Vladimir Putin summed up the Afghan debacle—and Biden’s nonchalant remark that he wouldn’t react strongly to a “minor” invasion of Ukraine if it were minor—as a green light to invade Ukraine.

When Biden did awaken, his first reaction was an offer to fly the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy out of the country as soon as possible. What has followed proved the greatest European killing ground since the 1944-45 Battle of the Bulge, albeit one that has now fossilized into a Verdun-like quagmire that is draining American military supply stocks and killing a half-million Ukrainians and Russians.

Suddenly, there are three genders, not two. Women’s sports have been wrecked by biological men competing as women, destroying a half-century of female athletic achievement. Young girls in locker rooms, co-eds in sororities, and women in prison must dress and shower with biological men transitioning to women by assertion.

The demonKKKrat party is a crimewave.

There is no longer a commitment to free speech. The American Civil Liberties Union is a woke, intolerant group trying to ban free expression under the pretense of fighting “hate” speech and “disinformation.”

The Left has revived McCarthyite loyal oaths straight out of the 1950s, forcing professors, job applicants, and students applying for college to pledge their commitment to “diversity” as a requisite for hiring, admittance, or promotion. Diversity is our era’s version of the Jacobins’ “Cult of Reason.”

Race relations hit a 50-year nadir. Joe Biden has a long history of racist insults and putdowns. And now as apparent penance, he has reinvented himself as a reverse racial provocateur, spouting nonsense about white supremacy, exploiting shootings or hyping racial tensions to ensure that an increasingly disgusted black electorate does not leave the new Democratic Party.

Will their upheaval succeed in subjugating and destroying America?

The military has adopted wokeism, oblivious that it has eroded meritocracy in the ranks and slashed military recruitment. It is underfunded, wracked by internal suspicion, loss of morale and ginned up racial and gender animosity. Its supply stocks are drained. Arms productions is snail-like, and generalship is seen as a revolving door to corporate defense contractor board riches.

Big-city Democratic district attorneys subverted the criminal justice system, destroyed law enforcement deterrence, and unleashed a record crime wave. Did they wish to create anarchy as protest against the normal, or were they Jokerist nihilists who delighted in sowing ruin for ruin’s sake?

Radical racial activists, with Democrat endorsement, demand polarizing racial reparations. The louder the demands, the quieter they remain about smash-and-grab looting, carjacking, and the swarming of malls by disproportionally black teens—even as black-on-black urban murders reach record proportions.

In response, Biden tried to exploit the growing tensions by spouting lies that “white supremacy” and “white privilege” fuel such racial unrest—even as his ill-gotten gains, past record of racist demagoguery and resulting lucre and mansions appear the epitome of his own so-called white privilege.

This litany of disasters could be vastly expanded, but more interesting is the why of it all?

What we are witnessing seems to be utter nihilism. The border is not porous but nonexistent. Mass looting and carjackings are not poorly punished, but simply exempt from all and any consequences. Our downtowns are reduced to a Hobbesian “war of all against all,” where the strong dictate to the weak and the latter adjust as they must. The streets of our major cities in just a few years have become precivilizational—there are more human feces on the sidewalks of San Francisco than were in the gutters of Medieval London.

The FBI and DOJ are not simply wayward and weaponized, but corrupt and renegade. Apparently the perquisite now for an FBI director is the ability either to lie while under oath or better to mask such lying by claiming amnesia or ignorance.

Immigration is akin to the vast unchecked influxes of the late Roman Empire across the Danube and Rhine that helped to finish off a millennium-old civilization that had lost all confidence in its culture and thus had no need for borders.

In other words, the revolution is not so much political as anarchist. Nothing escapes it—not ceiling fans, not natural gas cooktops, not parents at school board meetings, not Christian bakeries, not champion female swimmers, not dutiful policemen, not hard-working oil drillers, not privates and corporals in the armed forces, not teens applying on their merits to college, not anyone, anywhere, anytime.

The operating principle is either to allow or to engineer things to become so atrocious in everyday American life—the inability to afford food and fuel, the inability to walk safely in daylight in our major cities, the inability to afford to drive as one pleases, the inability to obtain or pay back a high interest loan—that the government can absorb the private sector and begin regimenting the masses along elite dictates. The more the people tire of the leftist agenda, the more its architects furiously seek to implement it, hoping that their institutional and cultural control can do what ballots cannot.

We could variously characterize their efforts as destroying the nation to save it, or burning it down to start over, or fundamentally transforming America into something never envisioned by the Founders.

Will their upheaval succeed? All the levers of the power and money are on the side of the revolutionaries. The people are not. And they are starting to wake to the notion if they do not stop the madness in their midst they very soon won’t have a country.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee and breakfast, fed the squirrels front and back, took two 50mg Tramadol and a 300mg Gabapentin for various pains, fired-up the Win-7 Pentium HP desktop to let 32 million lines of code load, had a couple smokes in the nicely cooled garage and checked the leftover errands list.

Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

It was a mostly cloudy, very foggy, damp, a cool 66°, 72% humidity, and my rain gauge said we'd gotten a much-welcomed ¾" overnight; nice. The flora and fauna are pleased. Showers and t-storms were forecast for today, with more rain. No complaints. The sun broke thru the dense haze, and it looked like a nice day ahead. Sherry emailed to say she wasn't feeling well, so our afternoon walk is rescheduled, and I now have some errands to do. I tuned into the "Chris Stigall Show" until 9; then switched over to the "Chris Plante Show", from 9-12.

Part of last night's t-storms.

By noon, heavy clouds had overspread the York area, and more t-storms were forecast. I left for Rite Aid Pharmacy at 1:30p, and to get some small errands done. Back at 2:15, I resumed working on computer paperwork and maintenance, had a simple Egg & Olive Salad Sandwich, crashed from the morning's Kona Coffee, and tried took a short snooze on the LR couch. Aw crap, here we go again:

*** Severe Thunderstorm Warning ***
• WHAT: Severe Thunderstorm/ Lightening/ Hail Warning.
• WHEN: From 3:00pm EDT, Sep 08 2023
11:00pm EDT, Sep 08 2023.
• IMPACTS: High wind, possible hail and lightening strikes.
Watch your asses!
• Issued By State College (at Penn State) PA -- US National Weather Service.

After dinner, I watched NEWSMAX news, switched to Discovery's "Gold Rush: Freddy & Juan's Mine Rescue" and "Hoffman Family Gold", both of which are nearing their season's finale. Around 8:45p, a massive t-storm hit the area, and unleased some hellish rain for 20-25min. Flood quality. By 11:30, I'd had enough TV, and headed upstairs.

Up at 7:30a on Saturday, I started coffee, took my 3 painkillers, had some smokes in the garage, while the back patio furniture dried-off from last night's downpours (¼") and fired-up the desktop. The morning clouds gave way to some sun, and things started drying-out. 69°, very humid, no breeze, but lawns starting to green-up once again. I hate grass, but I digress. I tuned into some podcasts of the "CS Show" -- I listen to his early morning show, but only his podcasts on the weekends -- as it's going to be another NBC (Nothing But Crap) Day for TV. No races today; very little of interest, tomorrow.

After the storms.

I ran a small errand around 12:30p, and the heat was building, as was the traffic. Back home, I had a Meatloaf Sandwich for lunch, and crashed on the LR couch. 3hrs later, the t-storms moved thru with only a shower, and I watched some FIA WEC (World Endurance Championship) 6hr Race from Fuji, Japan, which would run into the evening. I took a dinner break and back to the racing. No F1 race on this weekend, so this would have to do for my hyper-speed "fix". By 12:30a, I was nodding-off, and unplugged. Tomorrow's another day.

Awake at 5:30a on Sunday, I rolled over and slept until 7:45. It was a heavily overcast, light rain, 67° morning. The forecast was for showers and heavier t-storms later in the day, as what's left of TS Idalia works its way up the East Coast. I discovered that a *cricket* was hiding in my office-sunroom, probably got in from the patio storm-screendoor, somehow. I looked around but couldn't find it, but could hear it, occasionally. Heh. I had a light breakfast, lots of Kona Coffee and smokes, had last week's "CS Show" podcasts on, before going up for my usual shower.

I did a load of laundry, while also doing computer "housekeeping" and maintenance -- that's how I've kept this 2009 HP-Compaq 6000 Pro Mid-Tower running smoothly w/ MS-Win7 Pro x64 & 8Gn RAM -- as I do every week, and listened to some more podcasts, until the IndyCar race came on at 2:30p. After 95 laps on the legendary Laguna Seca Race Course in Monterey, CA, it was a lousy race. Too many dirtbag foreigners, dumbassed rookies and stupid, careless assholes in those multi-million dollar machines, with accidents and stupid incidents, all over the circuit. It has degenerated into a clown circus show, compared to previous seasons, where professional drivers reigned. I was very disappointed. Screw that race of clowns.

After dinner, I did some quick condo chores, watched the evening news, some NEWSMAX political analysis shows, and more old episodes of the original "Gold Rush". Lights out at 11:30p.

Awake at 6a and up at 6:30a on Monday, September 11th, it was a cloudy, bleak, humid, 69° morning. T-storms and rain forecast. I made coffee, had some smokes in the garage, since it was drizzling outside. After tuning into the "Chris Stigall Show" 6-9a, I switched-over to the "Chris Plante Show" 9-12, and got ready for my usual weekly trip south to DeVono's Cleaners in Dallastown, and misc errands, which I do/do not look forward to each week. Heh.

Today marks 22 years since the Islamic(SPIT!) terrorist attacks on NYC, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Have We Forgotten? (New 2023 version) I'll NEVER FORGET that day. Here's the timeline of that morning and day. Somehow, it still feels like yesterday. It still bring tears to my eyes, and a lump in my throat. I can still taste the tears. I guess I'll always carry the feeling of anger, hate and rage with me, for the subhuman Islamic(spit!) terrorist murderers. Here's a good FR thread on 9-11. And here's the original FR 9-11 thread on that terrible morning. Also, here's a Navy SEAL's article on 9-11. Never Forget! And another 9-11 Timeline.

On 9-11-01, America was under attack from the Islamists(SPIT!) from over there. Today, America is under attack from the leftists, communists, socialists, fascists, Marxists, anarchists etc etc etc, from over here, and they are far worse. They are the "party of death", compared to the muzzie filth who murdered 2,997 Americans on 9-11, they have murdered 64+ million babies and untold millions more with illegal drugs, covert treason with our enemies and every other method to compromise America, and kill her Citizens and US Military. Those seeking to obstruct our pursuit of happiness matter -- they are the enemy of freedom, faith, families, and prosperity. And they need killing.

Monday is my usual MS-BackUp Day, where the entire system, on all internal & external drives, is fully backed-up in 2 location, but no 'cloud' crap. So-called clouds are NOT secure, regardless of the BS the hosts/owners spout. THEY have access -- as do "others" (Google, CIA, NSA etc) -- to your data. Use an external HD (USB Hard Drive), or whatever your system will accommodate. I'm still using 2009 Win-7 Pro x64, so I use the internal MS Maintenance/Back-up/Restore function. YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).

BREAKING HEADLINE: "Energy prices in America are going to get much worse than we’ve ever imagined". Who hasn't seen that coming? The Leftists filth are canceling oil drilling leases,everywhere, and now in Alaska. Supplies from the SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) are down so low, that there is only a week's supply for US Emergencies. Every time we go to the local gas station pumps, it gets higher and higher. Soon enough, all the stations will "disappear" -- bankrupted by no gas deliveries -- and the corrupt, criminal US Govt & Greenie Wack-Os will force us all to buy EVs, since zero gas will be available. And when we all plug-in, the pathetic 'Power Grid' will crash, and we'll be back in the 1700s, or worse.

Hmmmm, yesterday's local WGAL TV Station's article about the still on-the-loose KILLER, which somehow can't be found. "More sightings..." the article says. SEE HIM? SHOOT HIM, people! $20k reward.

Democratic demonKKKrat leftist bitch, New Mexico Gov Michelle Lujan Grisham, has "temporarily suspended" the US Constitution's Second Amendment: open and concealed carry across Albuquerque under an "emergency health order". There is NO SUCH THING as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution. NONE. The announcement was spurred by the fatal shootings of young children, including a 13-year-old girl in July, a 5-year-old girl in August and an 11-year-old boy this month. If that stands, the state of New Mexico is just a land mass, and not a part of the USA. Apparently, they didn’t love Freedom enough and let it happen.

Brief, heavy T-storms moved thru the area, and after 33yrs of living in this condo, I found that one of the giant 4ft x 9ft office-sunroom windows has a "small" leak, so I called Brown's Glass Co, and the handyman for the condo complex, for help in locating and fixing it. I may have to have the huge glass window removed and reset, or have roof repairs done. Who knows? Damn.

After dinner, I watched the news, and a number of 9-11 Memorial documentary and some special Twin Towers/Pentagon structural engineering programs, related to plane crashes. By 11:30, I needed to unplug, get away from it all in sleep. Too depressing. I still remember that day...

Up at 7:30a on Tuesday, I made coffee, had a smoke and scanned the news and weather sites. I did the usual "CS Show" --> "CP Show" Talk Radio routine, and relaxed for the morning, and worked-up a small food shopping list, for early afternoon. It was a sunny, 62°, deep blue sky, humid (70%) and little or no breeze. Heavy t-storms were forecast for this afternoon and tonite. I'm prepared to tend to the office-sunroom's large window leak, until I can get either Brown's Glass or our handyman over to check the seal or roof. I did some algae cleaning on the back patio's screen/storm door's bottom glass pane. After 30mins with an algaecide and a sharp knife tip, I had all the channels cleaned-out and algae/mold killed. Well, that worked great, so there's one-in-a-row, for me.

The condo's handyman -- who nicely prepped and replaced my front doorframe & door last Fall -- called back to set-up an app't for next Monday; still waiting for the glass company to call for theirs. I finalized the food shopping list, got ready for the day, and left for Weis Market at 12:15p. Back by 1:30p, I unpacked, had Stuffed Shells for lunch, did a load of laundry, rehearsed my 5-min presentation for tomorrow's 10:30a meeting, and plopped on the LR couch for a snooze.

Just thinking... You go to the supermarket, get sliced cheese and meats, each enclosed in separate plastic ziploc deli bag; you also get various pasta salads at the deli in plastic containers with snap-on lids; you get a ½-gal of milk in a plastic jug; you get a loaf of bread and it's in a plastic sleeve bag; get a dozen eggs in a plastic styrofoam carton; get a 12-pak of Gold Peak Sugar Free Iced Tea with plastic 16oz bottles; you get a bag of Buttercrunch Lettuce in a plastic pouch bag; you get 7 nice bananas in a flimsy plastic veggie bag; and go to the checkout station where the lady charges you 5¢ for each plastic grocery bag. All that plastic inside a 5¢ plastic bag. Huh? It's another gov't scam. The store and distributors get nothing; the gov't gets every nickel. It's just another gov't shakedown.

*** Areal Flood Warning ***
• WHAT: Flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues to be possible.
• WHEN: From 8:00pm EDT, Tuesday, Sep 12 2023
06:00pm EDT, Wednesday, Sep 13 2023.
• WHERE: A portion of central Pennsylvania, including the following areas: Columbia, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montour, Northern Lycoming, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Southern Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga and York.
• IMPACTS: Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
A frontal boundary will bring a round of heavy rain and possibly violent thunderstorms to the area this evening into tonight. Some of the thunderstorms could produce torrential downpours, with rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches or locally higher possible. With the recent wet conditions this could be enough rain to cause additional flooding or flash flooding concerns.
• Issued By State College (at Penn State) PA -- US National Weather Service.

After a light dinner, I watched the usual news, and some old episodes of Discovery's "Homestead Rescue", checked the AccuWeather radar maps for the approaching t-storms. I had a large plastic GLAD® container, ready to catch water if it came into the office-sunroom, thru the top of the left side (3 windows total) 4ft x 9ft window, plus a pile of towels. I kept checking the weather radar maps for the massive red/orange/yellow t-storm's progress, and we'd be getting the worst of it between 11:15p - 12:30a. I set out a large plastic container and towels, finished the computer work, caught the last news report, and unplugged at 11:15, as I have to get up at 6a tomorrow. Lights out.

Up at 5:45a on Wednesday, I turned-off the 6a alarm, made coffee, checked the office-sunroom window's leak(s) (removed towels to let 3 small areas dry out), had a couple smokes in the 66° garage, and scanned the weather and news. BREAKING NEWS: "Escaped murderer Danelo Cavalcante captured following intense manhunt". Good; I'm surprised that they didn't purposely kill him. Now, we taxpayers have to foot the $70k/yr bill in SuperrMax, for him, until he's dead. Kill him.

I left at 10:00a for Nt Rose Cemetery, for the 10:30 meeting with 5-6 others at their offices. I was early and met Sis and Alan in the parking lot. My short presentation went "swimmingly", and my comprehensive document was well-received. Back home by 12:15p, after several errands, I had lunch, checked the office-sunroom window to make sure it had dried-out, worked on finishing the morning's Kona Coffee, and had a short snooze on the LR couch. It was truly a beautiful day, and tomorrow is forecast to be even nicer, as a cold front passes thru with low humidity and Fall-like temps. Nice.

I think I approaching my "BEST IF USED BY" date.

As Republican-led House committees launched an impeachment inquiry into President Lunch Bucket Joe Bidet this week, Democrats and their corporate media allies have been scrambling to claim the move is just a political attack. Some claim the investigations are revenge for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. Corporate media “journalists”, meanwhile, are trying to claim there is “no evidence” against Bidet. However, the idiot GOP's House Oversight and Judiciary Committees have gathered mountains of evidence over recent months, including bank statements and multiple witness testimonies. The evidence strongly indicates that Biden has been running a lucrative foreign influence-peddling business since serving as Obama’s VP. Bank records show millions of dollars flowing into the Bidets’ accounts from foreign nationals. Use this list when debating any libtard-prog-leftist POS. The evidence gathered so far, includes:

• Hunter’s business partners & associates met in the White House over 80 times when Biden was VP.
• Biden on the phone call with Hunter’s business associates at least 20 times as VP.
• Hunter taking trips to at least 15 countries when his dad was VP and subsequently meeting with business associates on multiple occasions.
• Joe Biden meeting IN PERSON with Hunter Business partners and a Moscow mayor’s wife who subsequently wired $3.5 million to Hunter’s firm and then avoided Russian sanctions under his presidency.
• Joe Biden meeting with Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskiy in 2015 which prompted his turn on the Ukrainian prosecutor's office.
• Joe Biden was “the brand” behind Hunter’s influence-peddling operation.
• Hunter Biden cashed in on his father’s name to the tune of millions of dollars.

• Joe Biden used three different pseudonyms to exchange official government information with Hunter Biden: Robert L. Peters, Robin Ware, JRB Ware.
• A “trusted” and “reliable” source in the FBI provided testimony that both Hunter and Joe Biden participated in a $5 million international bribery scheme.
• There are bank records and shell company statements showing multiple suspicious transactions amounting to over $20 million to the Bidens.
• An email trail shows that Hunter Biden sought "10 held by H for the Big Guy" -- the Big Guy meaning Joe Biden according to multiple witnesses.
• Hunter Biden described Joe Biden as an office mate and then listed Chairman Ye of CEFC as his partner.
• Business associate Rob Walker told the FBI that Joe Biden met personally with CEFC business members.
• CCP-connected businessmen, including spies, sent millions of dollars and even a diamond to the Bidens as part of the influence-peddling scheme.
• The Bidens set up elaborate methods of hiding these illicit Chinese payments.
• Hunter business associates implicated that Joe Biden was involved but not to mention it because “they are paranoid.”
• Joe Biden wrote a recommendation for the daughter of a Hunter business partner to get into Georgetown.
• Joe Biden met with Hunter’s Mexican business associates on Air Force 2.
• IRS whistleblower investigating Hunter Biden’s business affairs testified that Biden-appointed D.C. U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves refused to charge Hunter Biden in his jurisdiction and allowed the statute of limitations to pass for specific tax charges.
• IRS whistleblower on the Hunter Biden case Joseph Ziegler testified how the Bidens were given preferential treatment during the Justice Department’s investigation.
• Both IRS whistleblowers confirmed they were not allowed to follow evidence that could have led to Joe Biden.
• Hunter Biden lamented to his daughter in a 2019 text message that he was giving Joe Biden “half” his salary.
• Emails between Hunter and his business partner Eric Schwerin detail bill payments for ‘JRB’ -- believed to be Joseph Robinette Biden -- incidentally one of Joe Biden’s pseudonyms was JRB Ware.

After dinner, I caught the 6p news, and watched History's "American Pickers" until around 10; then switched over to Discovery's "Expedition X", both old favorites of mine from years ago. By 11:30, I was ready for some sleep. Good night, Irene.

Up at 6:15a on Thursday, I made coffee, had some smokes in the cool, 57° garage. Very low humidity, but no breeze. I fed the squirrels, tuned into the "CS Show" from 6-9, since I had 2 techs coming from Brown's Glass Co between 9-10a, to check the L/S 4ft x 9ft window's outside seal on the office-sunroom. The 2 techs arrived at 9:15, climbed ladders to examine the sunroom overhead gutter and roof, and caulked a small nail hole and the top rail of the gutter. It probably needs replacing; we'll see what happens in the next t-storm. After they left, I did some errands in the cool morning; no AC and Jeep HEMI V8 windows all wide open. All condo windows and screen doors open, too. Feels like a late October day. Nice!

It's getting lighter later in the morning, and darker earlier in the evening, as we get closer to the Winter Solstice.

I had a big plate of Cheese-Filled Ravioli for lunch, got the week's mail -- I've got 40-50 organizations mailing for donation, and I limit it to 10 -- so the crap gets dumped. Sherry stopped by at 2p, we walked at nearby Springettsbury Twp Park, and then drove east to Flinchbaugh's Orchard &Farm Market, to get some goodies. Back at my condo by 4p, we talked for an hour and Sherry left at 5; she had some stops to make, and traffic would be building. Time to get some dinner.

pResident Lunch Bucket Joey Bidet's crackhead, stripper-knocker-upper, lowlife, scumbag son, Hunter Bidet, was indicted Thursday on federal firearm charges and could face up to 25 years in prison. Fat freaking chance. You and I would already be in prison, serving 15-20 years, if we pulled the shit he did. Bidet is facing three criminal counts, including making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm, which carries a maximum of up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release, the documents show. The second count, a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer, can garner up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release. The third count, possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, can land up to a maximum of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release, according to the documents. GUESS WHAT? HE'LL NEVER SEE THE INSIDE OF A COURTROOM, LET ALONE A PRISON CELL.

I watched the news, tuned into "Jesse Watters" and then over to some episodes of last season's "Gold Rush", which I hadn't finished on tyhe rerun trail. Temps were dropping into the low-50s, and it felt great sitting in the garage, having a last smoke for the night. Lights out at 11:30p/

Tomorrow starts a new week, here in the "Journal" and, with the exception of the condo assn's handyman coming to look at my office-sunroom roof for laks on Monday, I've got a clear week. Perhaps Sherry and I can get together more often than this past week.

Technocracy’s Control Freak Agenda Is Rapidly Moving Forward.

The future is here, and if you enjoy being dominated by control freaks you are going to love it.  “Digital identification” is one of the primary areas the globalists are focusing on right now, and as you will see below, the radical changes that are now being proposed are extremely scary.  But most Americans have no idea that any of this is happening.  Instead, many of them are obsessing over the relatively meaningless dramas that our corporate news outlets are constantly pushing.  Meanwhile, the globalists are achieving their goals at lightning speed, and there is hardly any resistance at all.  The following are 8 signs that the futuristic control freak agenda of the globalists is rapidly moving forward…

Technocracy as the driving force. Technocracy’s evil and twisted agenda is behind all efforts to digitize humanity and to create a universal financial system. The ultimate result will be a global social credit scoring system that will either include or exclude you, depending on your behavior. Resist. Reject. Refute.

#1 Starting in September, the EU will “mandate” that all member states offer a “digital identity wallet” to all of their citizens and businesses…

The European Union will mandate digital identity under eIDAS 2.0, which will go into effect in September 2023 and ensure all Member States offer a digital identity wallet (DIW) to citizens and businesses. According to the European Commission, “At least 80% of citizens should be able to use a digital ID solution to access key public services by 2030.”

#2 A system of “digital fingerprints” for Americans has suddenly become Barack Obama’s biggest issue

Former President Barack Obama suggested in a new interview the development of “digital fingerprints” to combat misinformation and distinguish between true and misleading news for consumers.

Obama sat down with his former White House senior adviser David Axelrod for a conversation on the latter’s podcast, “The Axe Files,” on CNN Audio. During the interview, Axelrod noted he’s seen “misinformation, disinformation, [and] deepfakes” targeting Obama.

#3 A UN policy brief that you can find right here is proposing a global system of digital identification that is linked to our bank accounts

Digital IDs linked with bank or mobile money accounts can improve the delivery of social protection coverage and serve to better reach eligible beneficiaries. Digital technologies may help to reduce leakage, errors and costs in the design of social protection programmes.

#4 The World Health Organization has adopted “the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification” and plans to transform it into a “global system”

In June 2023, WHO will take up the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification to establish a global system that will help facilitate global mobility and protect citizens across the world from on-going and future health threats, including pandemics. This is the first building block of the WHO Global Digital Health Certification Network (GDHCN) that will develop a wide range of digital products to deliver better health for all.

“Building on the EU’s highly successful digital certification network, WHO aims to offer all WHO Member States access to an open-source digital health tool, which is based on the principles of equity, innovation, transparency and data protection and privacy,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “New digital health products in development aim to help people everywhere receive quality health services quickly and more effectively”.

#5 Federal agencies in the United States have been purchasing massive amounts of information about U.S. citizens from data brokers, and we are being warned that such information could potentially be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming”

Federal agencies are secretly accumulating mountains of data that could be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming” of American citizens.

That allegation doesn’t come from a pink-haired civil-liberties fanatic — it’s in a new report for the nation’s chief spymaster, Avril Haines.

#6 It has been revealed that the Pentagon has been using very creepy online tools in order to “covertly track, locate and identify anyone expressing dissent or even dissatisfaction with the actions of the U.S. military and its leadership”…

In a shocking report published by The Intercept on June 17, details have emerged of a U.S. national security surveillance strategy to covertly track, locate and identify anyone expressing dissent or even dissatisfaction with the actions of the U.S. military and its leadership.

The measures, undertaken by the Army Protective Services Battalion, fall under their remit of safeguarding top generals from “assassination, kidnapping, injury or embarrassment.”

#7 As I discussed yesterday, the UN has developed a global fact-checking system known as “iVerify” in conjunction with big tech companies and Soros-funded organizations.  The goal is to be able to police “disinformation” and “hate speech” all over the planet

The United Nations has unveiled an “automated” fact-checking service to counter so-called disinformation and hate speech on the internet in a project partnered with Big-Tech and Soros-funded organisations.

In response to what they brand as “online information pollution”, which they claim is a “global challenge”, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched its iVerify platform to counter alleged disinformation and hate speech online.

#8 The IMF is publicly admitting that it is constructing “a global CBDC platform” for all of the national central bank digital currencies that will soon be rolled out…

During a presentation at a conference in Morocco, Kristalina Georgievahe the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced that the global body is “working hard on the concept of a global CBDC platform.”

Georgieva declared that Central Bank Digital Currencies need to be interoperable between countries, noting “If we are to be successful, CBDCs could not be fragmented national propositions.”

“To have transactions more efficient and fairer, we need systems that connect countries,” Georgieva continued, adding “In other words, we need interoperability.”

If you can read through that entire list without becoming extremely alarmed, I don’t know if there is any hope for you.

The globalists are building a worldwide digital control grid which would potentially give them unprecedented power over the lives of every man, woman and child on the entire planet.

Under such a system, if you insist on being a rebel, your access to the digital system could be revoked completely.

What would you do then?

How would you survive if you could not buy, sell, get a job or open a bank account?

The extremely advanced technology that we possess today has allowed us to do a lot of really good things, but it also has the potential to be used to impose tyranny on a global scale.

We must resist these changes that the globalists are trying to impose on us.

Unfortunately, most Americans are not even talking about these changes, and that is because the mainstream media is telling them to focus on other things.

Reducing Humanity to the Status of Animals -- Leftism and The Decline of A Civilization.

“Civilization” or “being civilized” are not terms that are wholly easy to define. Vagaries and degrees can exist; it would be hard to argue that any human being is totally “uncivilized” or that any human being (or culture) has a monopoly on the term. We tend to think of “civilized” societies as those who possess at least a modicum of decent behavior and progress. Perhaps “civilization” can best be defined—though possibly not with total accuracy—as a distinction between man and the animal kingdom, or in the word Durant used, the “jungle.”

Animals—despite some idiotic Leftist claims today—don’t have morality, art, economic goals, religion, science—things that we have often considered to be representative of “civilized” societies. Some animals do, on occasion, show some features of what we might call “civilized” behavior, but such is not planned by intelligence; it is wholly by instinct and a desire for self-preservation. The “jungle” isn’t “civilized” in any intelligent definition of the word. “Civilization” is an offshoot of humans created in the image of God, yet with a crucial, important conception: God gives man freedom of moral choice and thus the freedom to descend into barbarity and the jungle if we choose to do so. As the quote from Durant suggests, and any good historian will tell you, such has happened in human history and not necessarily infrequently. Not many of us would call the Nazis “civilized.”

Thus, there is a standard of behavior—again, not always clearly or distinctly defined in human activity—which we can call “civilized” vs. “uncivilized.” When people sink below a certain standard of decency, responsibility, concern for their fellow creatures, and wise, virtuous conduct, it would be hard to call them “civilized.”

Are the inner cities of most Democratic Party-controlled metropolises “civilized”? I, personally, would not call them that. There is some behavior everywhere that classifies as “civilized,” but when that certain standard is no longer reached, barbarity becomes dominant. The streets of Chicago and San Francisco are probably more dangerous than an Amazonian jungle.

What other kinds of human behavior do we see today that qualify as “uncivilized”? Let me suggest a few examples.

1. Civilized beings do not kill their own offspring for pleasure or self-gratification. There are indeed some animals who do occasionally kill their offspring; a male bear, for example, might kill his own cubs to have sexual access to the female again. Quite frankly, this sounds a lot like abortion to me, at least in principle—the destruction of life for the carnal gratification and selfishness of the parent, in this case, the mother. We accept male bears doing this as simply part of their nature; they aren’t “civilized,” they are acting by instinct, and as a result, we cannot hold them morally responsible for their behavior. But that’s the point. The killing of one’s offspring is not “civilized” behavior, and in creatures who do (supposedly) have moral “sense” (humans), it becomes a reprehensible, uncivilized act. All the more because it is done deliberately and primarily for ultimate carnal gratification. A baby would be a nuisance; the procreation of the species, which is the ultimate purpose of the sexual act, is no longer in view. Pleasure is. This isn’t “civilization,” it is barbarity gone to seed.

2. The mutilation of children for sexual purposes is also a distinctly “uncivilized” act. As noted, some animals will kill their offspring. Perhaps there are some who mutilate their children in order to produce a creature they can eventually have sex with, but I know of no such creature—except humans. What the Left is doing to America’s children today is beneath barbarity. It is savagery in the basest meaning of the term. Civilized people do not mutilate their own children. Period. Anybody who believes that conduct is proper is as uncivilized as any creature can be, even below the most monstrous of animals.

3. Contrariwise, civilized people nurture and care for their children, educate and discipline them, and protect them from uncivilized predators. It is called “the family,” and it has been the foundation of every civilized society in history. The more a society destroys the nuclear family, the less “civilized” it becomes.

4. A civilized society knows the difference between males and females. Even animals do. Any society that doesn’t have descended beneath a jungle level. Nature cannot be destroyed, and civilization can be advanced.

5. A civilized society knows that all its collective parts should contribute to the well-being and advancement of that society. It will structure itself in such a way as to accomplish that. A civilized society does not encourage wanton, degraded, degenerate, slothful—or uncivilized—behavior. It isolates the animals inside it in order to protect its civilization.

6. The glorification of violence and sex in a society is uncivilized. These things appeal to the most squalid nature of man, his most carnal appetites, not his noblest. Uncontrolled lust and violence are characteristics of the lowest common denominator of humanity. Jungle instincts must be restrained, contained, and overcome for civilization to exist. Any society that refuses to do so will suffer dire consequences, as indeed we see in America today.

I could mention other matters pertaining to a “civilized” vs… “uncivilized” society, but space is limited. It is evident to any wise, just observer that many parts of the United States today have descended into the jungle and are getting worse. And all at the behest and encouragement of those who should know better. It is critical to understand -- and too many people do not -- that left unchecked and unhindered, a jungle will overrun everything in its path. But when the jungle is the source of someone’s wealth and power, it is obviously in their best interest to let it grow and flourish.

Hence, the Democratic Party in America.

Why I Will Always Support Donald Trump.

How can educated men like former Vice President Mike Pence, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and former Texas Representative Will Hurd be so stupid? (I am leaving out former Attorney General Bill Barr since he’s busy looking at bridges.) They have spent much of their lives in Republican politics and yet have a minuscule understanding of the largest grassroots Republican movement in modern history that is embraced and endorsed by more than half of Republicans—primarily the “base.”

No Republican can win the nomination without the MAGA base. America First Patriots stand with Donald Trump just as we did in 2016 and 2020. These Republican elitists, along with Marxist Democrats, are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and accuse us of being in a cult of personality. What chutzpah! We are proudly in a Cult of Patriotism!

Never Trumpers say we shouldn’t litigate the last election. If a loved one had been murdered in 2020, would they stop trying to find the assailant just because a few years have passed? To many Patriots, America’s cherished election process was murdered in 2020 and the culprit has yet to be arrested and tried in court.

June 16, 2015

When Donald Trump rode down the Trump Tower golden escalator and formally announced his candidacy, he had me and millions of other Patriots at hello. During his 46-minute speech, we knew Trump would win the election. It was just a matter of waiting for everyone else to board the Trump Train.

Once in office, Trump kept many promises with minimal to no support from his own party. The first two years of a Republican Congress were led by Rep. Paul Ryan (aka Paul RINO). Ryan is now a member of the board of directors at Fox News and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. A trifecta for Ryan would be joining MSNBC’s board of directors.

Yes, Trump made mistakes with the Communist Chinese COVID virus, in large part because he naively relied on those who insisted they understood “the science.” However, while Trump was diligently working for the American people, RINOs (many in his administration) along with Marxist Democrats were focused on advancing their Deep State tentacles. It was easy to do, thanks to a complacent media filled with “reporters” who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Election Day Eve 2020

With the Republican National Committee once again failing to prepare, Patriots saw Trump leading in swing states only to have multiple alleged voter fraud incidents change the final results. Fox News joined the leftist media and eagerly called the election for a candidate who once confused his sister with his wife. It would take pages to list all of Joey’s dementia gaffes since his inauguration, which is why Americans see him as old and confused.

Those who believe Joe “Big Guy” Biden got 81 million votes probably also think it’s normal for a grown man to shower with his daughter. Or that Biden interrupted Hunter’s business calls (on speaker, no less) just to discuss the weather.

Here we are today

Three years later, most Republicans still believe the 2020 presidential election was as kosher as a ham sandwich. Polls show that approximately one-third of Americans from all political parties believe Biden fraudulently “won” the election.

As to the indictments (with possibly more to come), it’s obvious that Joe Biden’s handlers fear the ballot box. So, like a banana republic, they get the “Big Guy” to go after his leading political opponent through lawfare. In the process, they are unraveling the foundation on which America was founded. Progressive Dr. Naomi Wolf has said about one of the indictments:

Don’t people understand – much as they may hate this fellow – that this is exactly what coup leaders in every banana republic do? Seek to imprison their political opponents? Especially while the political opponents are on the campaign trail?

Trump supporters are still going to vote for Donald Trump even if a biased jury finds him guilty because he is the only candidate with a proven track record of pushing back at UniParty insanity.

The GOP should be very concerned because in some states (such as California) you cannot write in a candidate in the general election. In other states, write-in candidates are allowed only if the candidate has registered as such before the election. Stalwart Trump supporters writing “Donald Trump” could invalidate their entire ballot including all down ballot Republican races.

The RNC can keep holding debates, but along with millions of Patriot Americans, I want The Donald to win a third time for his second term. No matter how many people stand on the debate stage, Trump is our candidate.

From unveiling Uniparty deep state corruption to creating a robust economy; from Middle East peace through the Abraham Accords to America being respected throughout the world; from energy independence to having a secure border; and everything in between, Patriots like me know that The Donald can Make America Great Again … Again.

Mr. Trump, I’ll be the loudest person applauding when you speak at the California GOP convention on September 29!

Beware The ‘Big Brother’ Digital Dollar That Will Take Your Freedom.

It turns out there’s another concern about the growing power of the deep state that the corporate media don’t want you to think about. Florida is the most recent state to pass a bill banning the use of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, and North Dakota are also considering the measure.

Why the concern about a form of digital currency that has yet to be issued?

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis refers to the idea as a “wolf in wolf’s clothing.” Both DeSantis and insurgent Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have rightly raised the issue in the presidential campaign and have been smeared by the corporate press for deliberately “misconstruing” the clearly stated intentions of the Biden administration to move toward a federal digital currency. If you weren’t sure whether their worries are justified, the furious nature of the corporate media’s pushback against their criticism of this Democratic wish-list item is an indication that they are probably onto something. The idea has been peddled for years by the World Economic Forum (WEF) crowd.

The CBDC is only in the drawing board stage, but if you’re wondering what Democrats can do to advance their agenda of greater government control of every aspect of American life, as well as to stifle dissent if they win the 2024 election, this should be on your radar.

A D.C.-Controlled Digital Wallet

The threat is clear. Imagine an America in which almost all financial transactions are not only able to be monitored by Washington but administered by it via a government-run digital currency. Such a scheme would put the government’s hands even deeper into our pockets and make Treasury Department bureaucrats the masters of your digital wallets, giving them not just detailed information about your life but power over your ability to exist in the modern marketplace.

That would make it impossible for independent contractors and small businesses to conduct operations “off the books,” increasing government tax revenue. But it would also give the feds the ability to close the bank accounts of those it disfavors for political reasons and prevent them from conducting business of any kind. That’s something already experienced by Brexit promoter Nigel Farage and dissenters in Canada who backed trucker protests against authoritarian Covid rules.

The role of cash in the economy has been gradually diminishing for decades. But in recent years, the idea of a digital-only economy has been embraced by those who believe that what we need is more central planning that would be guided by the imperatives of environmental extremists and globalist politics. That’s exactly the kind of financial world that was envisioned in “Covid 19: The Great Reset,” by WEF chairman Klaus Schwab and French economist Thierry Malleret.

A Boost for the ‘Green New Deal’

The Davos set sees the CBDCs as a way to push their “Green New Deal” ideas about ending the use of fossil fuels and preventing the eating of meat or air travel (except by elites who use their own private planes to attend global warming summits). You don’t have to be a 21st-century Luddite to know that if it is implemented, it would be a potentially fatal blow to individual freedom.

The already diminishing role of cash was helped along by the coronavirus pandemic and created much of the impetus for the creation of a CBDC. A federal digital currency would offer an opportunity to eliminate the middleman of credit card companies or online purchasing companies like PayPal. It would compete with other digital currencies like Bitcoin with the advantage of having the force and credit of the United States government behind it rather than being a commodity floated by speculation. In theory, a CBDC-dominated economy would lower costs for consumers.

There is no going back to the world that existed before credit cards became ubiquitous. But there’s more to the push toward the creation of a digital dollar, which was set in motion by an executive order signed by President Joe Biden last year, than a desire on the part of Washington to make life more convenient or affordable for the rest of us.

Data mining conducted by Big Tech and its corporate clients allows them to deluge consumers with advertisements based on the preferences exhibited when they click on links. But the willingness of social media companies, which essentially own the virtual public square on which our political discourse is now largely conducted, to act to censor unpopular opinions — such as those that contradicted establishment orthodoxies about Covid or might undermine the politicians that Silicon Valley oligarchs and their deep state allies prefer — has made them a clear and present danger to the future of democracy. Yet the Washington establishment dismisses fears about CBDCs as conspiracy-mongering by either right-wing politicians or those who might stand to lose money.

ESG Guidelines

There is every reason to believe that the new digital money will be guided by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) guidelines that will favor some forms of economic behavior and punish or ban others in much the same way those measures are already being used to restrict investment. An ESG-influenced currency could force consumers to stop buying or limit the purchase of items liberal elites don’t approve of, such as guns, meat, or gasoline. That could make it that much easier for the United States to end protests against its policies in the way Justin Trudeau’s government did. And it will all be done in the name of consumers and global competitiveness.

There’s little doubt that a CBDC will be on the agenda of a second Biden administration should one come to pass. It may be just one among many aspects of the way continued Democratic rule will implement the “Great Reset” and remake our society while diminishing our rights. Preventing this Orwellian development from becoming a reality must be a priority if we are to preserve the liberties Americans once took for granted.

15 Signs That Social Insanity Is Eating Away at America Like a Cancer Is Visible All Around Us.

The fabric of our society is coming apart at the seams, and you can see it with your own eyes. If you live in a major city, all you have to do is walk around, and you’ll find many signs that our core urban centers are decaying, and just about every sort of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us.

Our so-called leaders continue to make stupid decisions, and now we are all going to reap the consequences. Predators are roaming our streets. American families are collapsing. Traditional moral values have been completely discarded. Young people are running wild in the streets, lawlessness is growing, and our system of government is melting down in plain sight.

Analysts with ZeroHedge pointed out that there’s a sudden panic leading Americans to search for a way out of our society. Research has shown that the number of people in the U.S. searching for the term “live off-grid” on the Internet has hit the highest level in five years.

The driving force behind finding a rural piece of land for dirt cheap, buying or building a tiny home, installing solar panels, and sourcing your own food and water might have to do with the worst inflation storm in a generation, the experts noted. The worst housing affordability crisis in history and the deterioration of people’s confidence in our institutions are driving many to try to become independent from our system because they can already feel that it is only a matter of time before everything starts crumbling down.

As economic conditions get worse, people are becoming more desperate. This is fueling a shoplifting wave all over the country, and some grocery stores are being forced to implement extreme measures right now. A new report by the Washington Post reveals that Giant Food stores are taking all Tide, Colgate, and Advil products off the shelves completely because theft has become an enormous problem.

The grocer is also clearing its beauty and health aisles of all national labels. Shoppers also will have to present their receipts to an employee before exiting the store. Executives said the decision was made to prevent the stores from shutting down.

Moreover, when people can’t trust our major institutions, it’s just a matter of time before they start breaking down. And a new Gallup poll shows that Americans do not believe in those that are currently running our country. The study found that only 8% of Americans trust Congress, while just 14% trust Big Business, and the rate same said they believe in Television news.

Worryingly, the poll uncovered that only 17% of Americans trust the justice system. About 26% trust in the federal government, and only 32% believe in the church. In other words, the majority of the population can tell that the foundations of our society are solid enough at this point in time.

If we stay on this path, our future will be doomed. As a society, we need to turn around and reverse course immediately. We are literally destroying ourselves, but things have been wrong for so long, that many people don’t even notice it anymore. Deep changes must happen soon. Otherwise, we are going to see things happen in the years ahead that will completely shock all of us.

Today, we compiled several facts and stats that help to illustrate the social insanity that is going on all over America. Some of the things we’re about to share with you can be disturbing, but we must look at our issues to understand what is happening to our country. Here are 15 Signs That Social Insanity Is Eating America Like A Cancer.

Here’s the List

  1. A mass exodus from liberal cities has begun
  2. Our major cities are degenerating into rotting, decaying hellholes
  3. San Francisco has become known worldwide for a very shameful problem
  4. Famous public parks are being described as “lawless”
  5. Even state governors are bluntly admitting that U.S. urban areas have a “major crime problem”
  6. Our schools are being absolutely flood with fentanyl
  7. More people are trying to live off-grid
  8. Young Americans are becoming delinquents
  9. Pestilences are raging in many areas of the nation
  10. Supermarkets are taking essential products off the shelves because of rampant shoplifting rates
  11. Retailers are losing thousands of dollars every day as brazen theft continues to escalate
  12. Authorities continue to blame the victims instead of the actual offenders
  13. Confidence in our institutions is eroding
  14. Our population doesn’t have faith in God anymore
  15. Our priorities have gotten way out of whack
