This is going to be a long politics blog post. The bad news takes up most of this post, but there’s a bit of good cheer at the end. Recognizing the magnitude of events unfolding can feel overwhelming and it’s important to realize that big picture part, but it’s also important not to let that hamstring you or discourage you from just working harder to remain positive and proactive in your own life.
Last night President Biden gave a dark speech warning about the threat MAGA Republicans pose to democracy:
That’s what I believe was going on with Biden’s blood red speech last night in Philadelphia, PA.
I’m going to rehash the pandemic response around the world in 2020, because there’s something that’s been bugging me, after reading the Klaus Schwab book, COVID-19: The Great Reset. The “experts” and “elites” pushing all the COVID mitigation efforts on us already knew after the first few months, that this pandemic, in historical terms, would be mild and they knew all along which groups of people were most at risk, yet they deliberately opted for some of the most extreme economic, social and political measures all to condition people for this Great Reset (green-energy transformation,) they were already planning in the Spring of 2020. They planned the economic turmoil that devastated millions of small businesses across America, they planned the social mitigation efforts and they planned the political measures, using the pandemic as cover, I believe. Here’s a quote from Schwab’s book (I highlighted the last sentence, which has been bugging me since I read it):
“There is no denying that the COVID-19 virus has more often than not been a personal catastrophe for the millions infected by it, and for their families and communities. However, at a global level, if viewed in terms of the percentage of the global population effected, the corona crisis is (so far) one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experience over the last 2000 years. In all likelihood, unless the pandemic evolves in an unforeseen way, the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health and mortality will be mild compared to previous pandemics. At the end of June 2020 (at a time when the outbreak is still raging in Latin America, South Asia and much of the US), COVID-19 has killed less than 0.006% of the world population. To put this low figure into context in terms of lethality, the Spanish flu killed 2.7% of the world’s population and HIV/AIDS 0.6% (from 1981 to today). The Plague of Justinian from its onset in 541 until it finally disappeared in 750 killed almost one-third of the population of Byzantium according to various estimates, and the Black Death (1347-1351) is considered to have killed between 30% and 40% of the world population at the time. The corona pandemic is different. It does not constitute an existential threat, or a shock that will leave its imprint on the world’s population for decades.”

This book was published in July 2020 and many of the world leaders, WEF crowd, and UN crowd invested in the green-energy transformation, had already planned how to use the COVID pandemic to set the stage for their green-energy transformation. So, all the phony laments about “trust the science” were cynical mass psychological warfare being used against the American people by our leaders and health officials, I believe. We were being conditioned to accept doing what we were told was for the common good, as decided by politicians, elites and experts, who made those decisions for us. All that public virtue-signaling and the public-shaming efforts were orchestrated to target people who refused to do what they were told by the elites (the experts).
In America, President Trump, presented a huge obstacle to the western leaders’ green-energy grand plan. Under Trump, America, for the first time in my lifetime was actually energy independent, despite the chaotic ways he ran his presidency, his character flaws, his spending so much time on his reality show presidency. The truth is Trump’s actual policies, like freeing up American oil and gas production, promoting American business, and his unwillingness to just green stamp policies coming out of the G-7 crowd, who were completely committed to turbo-charging the green-energy transformation on the back of the COVID pandemic, made Trump the #1 target of the global elite “green dream” crowd.
The current economic turmoil was planned – it’s not an accident. The same group of world leaders and elites who orchestrated the COVID mitigation chaos are deliberately orchestrating this economic collapse. They believe they can manage this collapse and the conversion to not only green-energy, but to forcing the world into a new ESG-centric world, where people are forced to downsize, not only their energy consumption, but every aspect of their lives, to conform to groups of unelected global elites forcing people to do as they’re told or be ostracized and basically cut off from everything – from energy, from goods and services, from medical care, from employment. It’s a total control program to force people to give up their personal freedoms… all for the “greater good of the world”… as decided by a bunch of elites.
Since the largest business leaders in the free world are already on-board with the ESG/green-dream policies and have been pushing ESG compliance for several years now, unfortunately most of the leaders on the right in America, either didn’t take the green transformation effort seriously and dismissed it as just far-left activist kooks or they opted to quietly just go along to get along and continue to make a lot a money. The green-energy train has not only left the station, it’s racing around the world now. At this point, the moves have already been made to impose the green-energy transformation on the West and the areas of the world the West can exert pressure on. China, Russia and their allies might pay lip service to the green-energy transformation, but nothing China and Russia have done with their efforts to bolster their fossil fuel capacity, leads me to believe they care one iota about the green-energy transformation, besides hoping it will collapse the West – and it might. There are a myriad of tentacles in this transformation, beyond just “green energy.” There are global currency upheavals, and it moves down to even what type of foods and how much people will be allowed to consume, what goods and services will be available, what temperature you have to keep your thermostat set on, how much you can travel, etc.
In the conclusion chapter of Schwab’s book, he writes:
“In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold, an entire village foresees a looming catastrophe, and yet none of the villagers seem able or willing to act to prevent it, until it’s too late. We do not want to be that village. To avoid such a fate, without delay we need to set in motion the Great Reset. This is not a “nice-to-have” but an absolute necessity. Failing to address and fix the deep-rooted ills of our societies and economies could heighten the risk that, as throughout history, ultimately a reset will be imposed by violent shocks like conflicts and even revolutions. It is incumbent upon us to take the bull by the horns. The pandemic gives us this chance: it “represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine and reset our world”.

I don’t think most people on the right, who get worked up repeating stuff they heard on right-wing media about the “Great Reset” quite grasp, that this green-energy/ESG global transformation effort is already well in progress. It’s not some future plan – it’s already been implemented and anyone who gets in the way will be silenced, destroyed, and cut-off from economic, not only opportunity, but even from the very basics of goods and services, we’re all used to. The controls over energy usage are already being rolled out, there will be controls on everything we consume – everything. The people driving this Great Reset believe they can manage a collapse of the world economic system without driving all of us off of a cliff and they have no “mitigation” plans to soften the fall for millions of people around the world.
Free speech poses a particular threat to the green-energy transformation agenda, so the social media word police games will escalate, but also, people who pose any sort of threat of disruption will be silenced, either overtly by being locked out of social media and online forums, to having their jobs threatened, to being doxxed. The Zuckerberg admission in the past week about being warned by the FBI about “Russian disinformation” stories right before the Hunter Biden laptop story broke in 2020, shows that “algorithmically” social media companies can (and did) banish accounts and stories into a literal internet wilderness, where no one would even see the stories. The FBI facilitated squashing that Hunter Biden laptop story in October 2020. And dozens of former intelligence officials went public dismissing the Hunter Biden laptop story as “Russian disinformation.” The public corruption runs very deep.
I see a lot of people fuss and fume about this or that story that hits the media and while being pissed off is understandable, it’s really counterproductive at this point. Squashing free speech in America is a top tier Democrat effort right now and somehow too many Republicans in Washington still seem to want to out meme Dems or own liberals on Twitter, when Democrats are making huge moves to silence opposing views, especially via their big tech friends. “Owning the libs” on social media isn’t a plan, it’s wasting time. I don’t have a solution or ways around this huge communication problem yet, but it’s been on my mind a lot longer than the green-energy transformation agenda’s been around. Liberals own the online spaces and they can work together to crush alternative platforms.
For instance, Trump was banned from Twitter and facebook in January 2020 and we’re now in September 2022. The first few Trump-friendly social media venues failed quickly, but finally Truth Social, a alt-tech social media company by Trump Media & Technology Group, launched in February of 2022. A couple days ago, I saw this: Truth Social’s Ban From Google Play Renews Calls for Apple to Remove App. There is an orchestrated effort to silence and demonize, not only Trump, but any Republicans or people who get in the way of the Great Reset transformation underway. There’s a big tech cabal working to destroy Truth Social and knock Trump offline again.
President Biden isn’t running anything, he’s doing what he’s told to do by the Obama apparatchiks, inside the Biden White House. They wrote that divisive speech he delivered last night; they staged that speech that way deliberately.
One of the hardest lessons I’ve struggled with is to not react in anger and develop more self-discipline and self-control – it’s hard, when something smacks you in the face as an affront to all the values you hold dear. However, working calmly and diligently to prepare your own family for coming economic upheavals, so you can, not just survive, but still thrive is paramount. Then finding positive ways to build bridges of helping hands with other like-minded people, to try to bolster a sense of community and networks across America is way better than fuming and ranting right now. People who are calm, positive and prepared will fare better than the millions of people who trust the Biden administration and Democrats to take care of them. What’s going to matter in the end of this, I believe is strong, competent, calm American leadership – not partisan politics.
This morning I was thinking about a blog post, Who Will Defend Our Castle?, I wrote in 2014. I mentioned a WWII story about the Battle of Castle Itter, one of the last battles in WWII. I still think this remains true about American leadership:
“The almost farcical nature of the characters and events in the battle for Castle Itter provides a quirky, yet almost emblematic view of how in the unlikely circumstance of fighting for their lives, this castle’s curious mix of inhabitants, like people everywhere, can put aside national and personal loyalties, to unite in moments, because not much else mattered, except surviving.
The story centers on VIP French prisoners, whom the SS kept imprisoned in Castle Itter during WWII. As the Americans advanced across Europe in the waning days of the war, a young American first lieutenant, John C. “Jack” Lee, Jr., made the mistake of volunteering to go secure the castle, after a surrendering German major arrived to tell the advancing Americans about the VIP prisoners held prisoner in nearby Castle Itter. The young American officer sets off with 8 volunteers, plus 5 soldiers from the African-American Company, along with the surrendering German major and a truckload of his German soldiers. The French VIPs, upon seeing their small rescue force, were unimpressed that such a paltry band of soldiers was sent to rescue their grand personages. But quickly the scene changed as the castle fell under attack from SS troops. The squabbling French VIPs (which included two French generals, who despised each other) and the surrendering Germans all turned to the young American lieutenant to take charge of their castle defense. To get the full impact of the absurdity of the events, read the full story of the battle for Castle Itter (here’s the link again).”
Calm, unflappable, disciplined American leadership still matters and it can come in many forms and from unlikely places, from stepping up to the plate to organize and guide your own family, to working in your church or community to help others, to even figuring out how to handle emergency situations. Buying into believing we are powerless is the ultimate form of surrendering and giving up. There’s still hope left all around us.
