War. Famine. Bitcoin. Ayn Rand. Kings and their illusory “economy”.
What does all of this have to do with the future of America and how real, traditional American PATRIOTS can help destroy what they love in order to save what they love?
Buckle up–it gets pretty bumpy from here.
Let’s take a look at an absolute, given reality for the times. Simply put, it is that what the mainstream press tells you is true is obviously false, and what it says is false is obviously true. This is especially evident when what they’re offering is merely parroted from whatever Establishment (re: anti-American) political body or person is spewing forth.
Leftist rags like Bloomberg are claiming that hyperinflation isn’t coming, isn’t possible, and oh look, we have the numbers to back it up.
They supposedly have the numbers to back up their climate change and COVID junk science, too.
The nonsense presented by outfits like this are meant to keep confidence up; to prop up the lie. When confidence falls, inflation follows. This “economy” is Biden’s baby. His proppers-up cannot allow bad news on his watch. Bloomberg and others like them say “hyperinflation isn’t coming”. Guess what that means?
Next, let’s consider what they offer as their “silver bullet”–the trick bag of the Federal Reserve. Things like “stimulus”, “quantitative easing” (“stimulus” on steroids), interest rate manipulation, and the buying of government bonds that the whole world knows are at this point worthless (with printed money that is equally worthless)…these are the tools the illusionists use to keep an otherwise deceased economy on life support. What the folks behind the curtain won’t tell you is that these tricks have been overused, and the cards overplayed, for more than two decades. It’s as if the whole current American economy was built on sand, but rather than let it crumble so it could be rebuilt on a solid foundation, these numbskulls just kept piling sand against the walls while they added a thousand floors to the unstable building. It’s simply no longer able to hold more weight, and the weight it’s currently supporting has eroded the foundation so badly that collapse is imminent in the first place. This shell game is now a mad scramble, where a single wrong move will send the whole thing tumbling, and there are simply no “right” moves available, to the Fed or anyone else, any longer.
The last bullet they have left in their magic gun is to “Volcker” the economy in an attempt to stop inflation in it’s tracks. This strategy was successfully used by it’s namesake to bring the alarming levels of inflation caused in the late 1970s (by the policies of that other weak Democrat Jimmy Carter) to an end. The method is to increase interest rates to ridiculous levels so that the flow of money virtually stops, which alleviates price rise at the expense of jobs. In effect, the Volcker method intentionally creates a recession to slow the speed of money and, one hopes, to regain control of an out-of-control currency.
Here’s the problem—Paul Volcker had a much more fundamentally sound economy to work with than we do today, a true conservative (Ronald Reagan) in the White House, and an American people that still believed in their country and the rule of law. Volcker was successful at a time when we all believed it was “Morning in America”. Do you believe that now? Remember, inflation is primarily caused by distrust in the stability and buying power of a nation’s currency. Trust is key. Do you trust the government, and believe that everything is going to be peachy moving forward?
Add to that the fact that by forcing a recession in a moment of relative financial stability and during a period where America was the preeminent nation on earth—still respected where logical and feared where necessary—was a much less risky proposition than throwing the dollar and the American economy under the bus in these perilous times. The “Volcker solution” is akin to jumping under the toppling tower of the economy and giving it a mighty shove in the other direction. On a solid foundation, this might result in the building coming back upright, as it did during the Reagan years…but in times like today, there is no solid foundation and no one on the other side to catch the building as it teeters and falls hard the other way. This is Depression 2.0 on steroids.
But that’s not the worst of it. The fact is that Depression quickly works it’s way from significant deflation straight back into massive inflation as the citizenry rapidly loses all confidence in the currency and expends all savings, as well as all money they do get their hands on, as soon as they get it. In other words, the building hits a giant rubber band as it falls the other direction and rebounds with incredible speed right back into the mess. Hello hyperinflation…on top of a now-depressed economy and a nation on the verge of collapse.
Depression. Hyperinflation. Does any of this sound appealing to you? That’s what’s coming, because the Federal Reserve has no ability to “fake it” any longer.
And then there’s this—another of those simple truths; when it’s all crumbling down around them, the ruling class will pull out all the stops. We just saw it with an openly stolen election. No fear of reprisal, no concern for the future, no attention paid to consequences whatsoever—just do whatever it takes. The ruling elites will do anything and everything to keep the illusion going just a little bit longer, no matter the final result. You know it, I know it, and the rest of the world knows it. How long before the economic leaders of the other countries get too nervous to keep pinning their own economies on the US dollar? Yet another fact that’s just ignored routinely by all those who keep telling us everything is fine.
This all begs the question posed by the scenario I put forth in the first part of this article; when it’s all coming down anyway, should we continue to participate in the lie for just awhile longer (at the expense of any chance of salvation for our kids), or should we attempt to hasten the fall so we can get to work rebuilding on a strong foundation with, once again, the traditional American ideals we’ve allowed the ruling classes to erode over the years?
You can guess my answer.
So how do we do that?
I’ll lay out that strategy in Part IV.
