Turley: Happy 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrim's Landing!

In addition to reading the following column from Jonathan Turley, have a look at my post called "Squanto was the Answer to the Pilgrim's Prayers in 1620 Plymouth."

From the magnificent Jonathan Turley at the

Thanksgiving dinners this year may come with a heaping serving of shame. Student newspapers have called on students to confront their racist relatives, while Professor Abigail Adams of Indiana University of Pennsylvania gave students instructions on how to “decolonize” Thanksgiving. MSNBC guest host Jason Johnson suggested that Thanksgiving be known as “Colonizer’s Christmas,” while others insist it be called “Thanks-taking Day.”

Despite today’s growing attacks on the Pilgrims, they embodied a key defining character of this country as people who refused to conform. The problem with the Pilgrims is not that they came to these shores but that, 400 years later, Europe seems to have followed them with the very types of restrictions that the Pilgrims fled — restrictions which may find support from some key figures of the next presidential administration.

Such objections to Thanksgiving may explain why there has been little celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims arriving in November 1620 at what is now Cape Cod, Mass. Indeed, most people seem unaware of the anniversary, which has been “Voldemorted” into some “event that must not be named” — except to denounce it.

There is no question that the colonization of America led to great atrocities against the native population, as well as disease and displacement. It is an indelible, shameful part of our history. Yet in this shrill debate, there is little room for a full understanding of the Pilgrims or who they were. Indeed, critics of the holiday often push their own simplistic stereotypes of the Pilgrims while denouncing similar stereotypes in modern life. Johnson, for instance, insists the Pilgrims should not be viewed as victims seeking religious freedom but as “part of a commercial venture.”

In reality, the Pilgrims were extraordinary individuals with an inspiring tale. They were part of a persecuted Puritan minority known as the English Separatist Church. Hounded out of England under King James VI, they first went to the Netherlands to pursue freedom of faith and speech; they became known as the “nonconformists” for refusing to adhere to the approved orthodoxy of the English Church. They eventually sailed aboard a ship, the Mayflower, to seek freedom in the New World. Their Mayflower Compact was the hemisphere’s first articulation of self-government and a new “civil body politic.”

The fact that the first settlers were known as “nonconformists” carries special meaning for civil libertarians. Our nation has been shaped by nonconformists since the Pilgrims made landfall. After playing a critical role in our independence, Thomas Paine irritated the Framers with his critiques, including John Adams, who called him “a crapulous mass.” Nonconformists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan Anthony demanded full rights for women, despite being jailed and harassed. Nonconformists like Martin Luther King demanded full rights for African Americans, and nonconformists like Cesar Estrada Chavez did so for migrant populations and Harvey Milk did so for homosexuals.

They are why Confucius observed: “A reasonable man adjusts himself to the world. An unreasonable man expects the world to adjust itself to him. Therefore, all progress is made by unreasonable people.” The Pilgrims were unreasonable people who refused to be silenced, refused to be deterred in advocating for their values — and, in so doing, they reflect the progress produced by unreasonable nonconformists throughout history.

Europe, in contrast, has never widely embraced such nonconformity, notably the type of robust free-speech protections that define our constitutional system. Indeed, free speech still is being dramatically rolled back in countries like Germany, France and England. Now, four centuries later, Europe seems to be landing here in full force. Many liberal academics and Democratic politicians openly call for censorship and the regulation of free speech to achieve greater social harmony. The Pilgrims would be the first to warn that harmony for some is conformity for others.

The incoming administration is shaping up to be one of the most anti-free speech governments in decades. Joe Biden has demanded that Big Tech companies block those, including Donald Trump, who in his view spread “disinformation” or undermine society. Advocates for speech controls often employ Orwellian terms, like Richard Blumenthal demanding “robust content modification” on the internet. The Pilgrims would have had no difficulty recognizing what that means: They themselves were “robustly modified” out of Europe.

One of the more chilling examples of this trend is the man selected to head Biden’s transition team on media agencies and policies — Richard Stengel, one of the leading anti-free speech voices in the country. Last year, Stengel wrote a Washington Post column that denounced free speech as a threat to social and political harmony. He struggled to convince readers that what they need is less freedom: “All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”

In his column, Stengel showed frustration in not being able to answer Arab diplomats who asked why we tolerate people who blaspheme religion: “Even the most sophisticated Arab diplomats that I dealt with did not understand why the First Amendment allows someone to burn a Koran. Why, they asked me, would you ever want to protect that? It’s a fair question. Yes, the First Amendment protects the ‘thought that we hate,’ but it should not protect hateful speech that can cause violence by one group against another.”

So Stengel was referring to diplomats from a part of the world where people are flogged and even executed for blaspheming religion and yet, he was unable to explain why we would tolerate such free speech. Stengel just can’t understand why people cannot be forced to conform in the interests of harmony. His view is enough to persuade you to board a leaky wooden ship in search of a new world.

The problem is that we're all out of new worlds to discover. So this Thanksgiving, I will celebrate the Pilgrims and all other nonconformists. One of my students is even making duck a l’orange in the ultimate act of nonconformity. Despite my culinary traditionalist impulses, I will even embrace an orange duck as a dish fit for the continued “Pilgrim’s Progress” toward unapologetic nonconformity.

[Doug here: Don't worry Jonathan, the Pilgrims likely ate clams, corn and lobster once Squanto taught them to harvest them!]

Obama Administration Started the War on Police, the Lawlessness and Racial Strife We See Today

True to his ignorant Marxist and racist nature, Obama always stoked racial tensions rather than calming them. Obama started a war on police and a race war that continues to this day. You can correctly say that Obama started this insane period of lawlessness in this country. He was the "lawless and disorder president."

He never missed an opportunity to inflame race relations and show blatant anti-white discrimination especially when it came to white police officers. In every instance, Obama took a stance against law enforcement in any headline case of white officers interacting with black citizens. He would never say anything sympathetic about a white police officer killed by a black assailant. Obama's reactions were always knee-jerk and without any facts---showing his obvious bias and racism. Obama and all the black "leadership" assumed that the white officer in every case was guilty. This is just mob rule that you might see in a 3rd world country. But, in each case it inflamed already chaotic and emotional situation, causing destruction of black businesses and black deaths. Obama has blood on his hands (but he will NEVER see it because he is either brainwashed by his Marxism or stupid or both).

Heck, it started early on with the Cambridge cop incident. Obama invited that officer over for beer, but you can be 100% sure that he learned NOTHING even though he pronounced it a "learning opportunity." He learned nothing but a portion of the nation learned a great deal. And Obama never learned anything in his LLD either as we found out over the years. 

Obama and the Left-wing, DNC Media complex also made matters worse when a young Hispanic, George Zimmerman, on February 26, 2012, shot dead a young black man, Trayvon Martin, in what was widely reported as a racial hate crime. NBC edited a recording of Zimmerman’s call to the police to give the false impression that Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin solely because he was black. Instead of trying to calm the situation, Obama stoked the idea that Zimmerman acted out of racial hatred and said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” 

There never was a good case against George Zimmerman, which is why Sanford police never even arrested him in the first place. Local and State police won't prosecute cases where they don't have a reasonable chance of winning. The local police alone knew the facts of the case early on and decided that there was no case. But a trial was precipitated as a "political" prosecution only because many all the discredited black race hustlers, including Obama, whipped up protests and racial resentment and ALL jumped to the WRONG conclusions---before hearing the facts. That's called mob justice, which isn't justice at all.

Holder was a piece of shit too. When he took office, the Justice Department was pursuing a case against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation in Philadelphia. Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, abruptly dropped the case in May 2009 and refused to cooperate with further investigations, giving the impression that the Black Panthers were getting away with voter intimidation because of their race. Amazing how this is ESPECIALLY relevant for today's election fraud in Philadelphia and in Pennsylvania.

He refused to enforce many laws when that was his sole duty -- because he didn't like them! He and his black Attorneys General lied all the time to cover their misdeeds and failures. They ignored Congress' demand for information all the time. Because he was unable to work with anyone in Congress, he broke or bent the law dozens of times. And he did everything possible to divide and hurt this nation. And he did everything he could to also hurt America's interests abroad, weaken the US or to snub traditional US allies. His and Hillary's foreign policy was a unmitigated disaster -- 100% failure all around. What a disaster!

It's no wonder many Americans questioned if he really was American which explains the persistence of his birth certificate controversy. He always seemed like he didn't like America. And that's true and very few other black "leader" really like America. They are so brainwashed and steeped in racism against white people.

Obama, Holder and Hillary started the mob action that we see on the streets today. Let's hope there will never be another black racist President again for 1000 years!

How the Democrats Attempted to Steal the 2020 Election

 (Video 3.24 minutes)

Here's the link to the Gatewaypundit video in case Google cancels it: 

We're Literally on the Verge of Revolution --- Both Here and Abroad

Three pieces today in Martin Armstrong's blog give even more urgent credence to his understanding that the Covid "crisis" is being used to usher-in a totalitarian state of control and lockdown in the developed world.  They call it the Great Reset, but it's really a communist revolution underway in the EU, Canada, the USA and Australia under the guise of a Covid "crisis."

This is happening just as Democrats have made an outrageous effort to steal the 2020 election from Trump. Evidence keeps mounting of the outright criminal activity of the Democratic Party in many key State elections. Trump is the only thing standing in the way of this global power grab. 

We're literally on the verge of revolution---both here and abroad. It's entirely possible that the Democrats will be caught in their gambit. I can see the Democratic Party being "decertified" due to their massive fraud. We are entirely reliant now on Trump, Sydney Powell and Linn Wood for our country's survival and to avoid a civil conflict in the US.

Democrats are eager to join this Global Reset to assert total control through the "Green New Deal" which is a huge power grab as I discuss in the links below. Warnings of this totalitarian Globalist takeover/power grab are leaking out not only from Martin Armstrong, but Archbishop Vigano and from many Conservatives including myself. 

Biden will be pushed out of the way for more "useful tools" like AOC and Kamala Harris, don't kid yourself. The US Democratic party is completely in-sync with Klaus Schwab's and Thomas Piketty's global reset or Communism 3.0. We're at a dangerous place if Trump loses.

Take a look at these recent posts on this blog: 

Here's the recent Posts from Martin Armstrong. Each Sub-title is a hyperlink to each Armstrong blog:

Denmark Also Passes Emergency COVID Law Coordinated with Germany – They Are Now Moving Rapidly Globally

Denmark has taken a major step to a totalitarian state. This new law allows forcing people who test positive for ‘dangerous diseases’ to be ‘medically examined, hospitalized, treated and placed in isolation’. This further grants the Danish Health Authority the power ‘to define groups of people who must be vaccinated in order to contain and eliminate a dangerous disease’. The government can now coerce people who refuse to have the vaccine ‘through physical detainment, with police allowed to assist’.

These clauses present the collapse of all freedom. The government can simply say they “think” you are a member of such a group they define arbitrarily without any court to step in with respect to human rights. All individual liberty is now officially extinguished. This law allows full discretion to government officials with respect to defining what is now even a ‘dangerous disease’ and which groups will be forced to take a vaccine.

All the lessons of tyranny born with such horror and human suffering, for which so many gave their lives in defense against such unbound discretion handed to government agents, has been pushed aside. This agenda is being imposed because SOCIALISM is collapsing – they can no longer fund the pensions and programs for they can no longer borrow other people’s money. Instead of revising the system to preserve our humanity, world leaders have chosen the path to authoritarianism and the end of all our rights.

We no longer have world leaders who even remember World War II. They think only about their own status and power. They do not represent us. Just open your eyes, they are all using the very same slogan – Build Back Better.

Now listen to the words of Schwab. His set has the same slogan. This is the 2030 Agenda being pushed by the World Economic Forum. They believe they can terrorize people with the virus and keep the people locked down long enough to destroy the economy leaving no choice but to accept their agenda.

I have warned that this 2020 election was NOT simply Republican v Democrat or even Trump v Biden. This is about the very survival of the United States for they are counting on Biden being senile enough to have the sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations and fulfill George Soros’ dream of a one-world government.

My family fought in the American Revolution and in every war ever since. This is my contribution to have access to those who dissent and wish to save what we have.

Please repost this everywhere. We need to build momentum or everything will be lost.
Germany Passes Law they Can Now Do Anything in the name of COVID 

Germany just passed the new law on infectious diseases, which means now the govt will be able to, “legally”, mandate closures of businesses, lockdowns, masks, testing, and any other tyrannical measure they want, under the pretext of any virus/disease.

There were several thousand people peacefully protesting this law today in Berlin. As usual, the cops attacked them with brutal force (water cannons, tear gas, etc), and arrested over 200 people.

South Australia going into Total Lockdown

As of 12:01 am Thursday, 19 November 2020 South Australia time, the whole of the state of South Australia will be placed under house arrest for a period of 6 days – at least initially. All this due to a few people testing positive for covid19.

“… South Australia will be implementing a circuit breaker from 12:01 am Thursday, 19 November 2020 for the next 6 days aiming to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our state. … South Australia will pause, and people will need to remain at home for the next 6 days. …”

As I write this, there are currently only 35 active cases (test positive – not necessarily with symptoms), 2 in hospital, zero in ICU, and for this, they throw us all in-home detention.
Trudeau Has Joined the Conspiracy
Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, has just come out publicly confirming now that Trump is out of the way, they will bring about the Great Reset.

They will achieve equality by reducing the wealth and employment of the middle class while the superrich will become the overlords of this new normal. They are deliberately destroying the economy to create economic chaos for they believe they can rebuild it GREEN and end the disparity of income which is Communism 3.0. 

Trudeau, PM of Canada, has just come out publicly confirming now that Trump is out of the way, they will bring about the Great Reset. They will achieve equality by reducing the wealth and employment of the middle class while the superrich will become the overlords of this new normal. They are deliberately destroying the economy to create economic chaos for they believe they can rebuild it GREEN and end the disparity of income which is Communism 3.0. There have been leaked letters many say are fake because Trudeau had come out and had to deny them three times. They have said what he is saying just with more detail.

There is a great risk that they will seize all assets and you will own nothing precisely as Klaus Schwab has been telling these leaders when they come to his World Economic Forum at Davos. Schwab and Thomas Piketty are out to conquer the world and force Marxism once again by sheer authoritarianism/tyranny. They have used this fake pandemic to terrorize people in order to collapse the economy. These politicians no longer represent us – they have crossed the line into despots. They do not believe in capitalism, freedom, and human rights. We are the great unwashed, unworthy to be considered for we are too ignorant to know what is best for us or our family.

Their promises of utopia even Lenin knew were false claims. They wish to strip us of all freedom, keep us locked down to destroy our jobs and the fossil fuel industry, and then for survival hand us basic guaranteed income. If we dare to object, they will cut off all funds and starve us to death.

Trudeau has confirmed that Canada is on track for the 2030 Agenda following the World Economic Forum. Those who foolishly voted for Biden will soon realize they voted against their own self-interest, employment, their families, and their posterity. Listen to the words of Trudeau, then listen to Schwab’s 8 predictions for 2030 that Trudeau has just endorsed. All the European leaders are also on board as are the Democrats in the USA. Biden will declare a national lockdown in February and it will not be for just 4 to 6 weeks.

For those who think this is all BS, you better start opening your eyes and your mind or you WILL lose EVERYTHING! We do not have a lot of time left. They will suspend elections next come 2022.

A Nation Drowning in Lies: Massive Lies and the Largest Fraudulent Election in History

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”                                               
--Joseph Goebbels  
The entire Democrat-Media-Entertainment-Deep State complex (incl. top echelons at the CIA, DOJ and FBI) has maintained an endless drumbeat of false accusations directed at President Trump during his entire administration and during BOTH of his campaigns. It's been non-stop lies as 93% of all Big Media coverage was shown to be negative by Media Research. And that doesn't count their lies of omissions for not reporting positive news such as the recent outbreak of peace in the Middle East thanks to Donald Trump. This got ZERO coverage at all the mainstream media outlets. Good GDP news was barely covered for 4 years.  FRAUD!

Then, this same CABAL was all friendly and positive for the Biden campaign by asking the dementia-addled candidate softball questions, never panning away to show that the venues were empty when Biden or Harris spoke.

Speaking of total corruption, the US media complex was entirely successful in killing the entirely convincing evidence that the Biden's are compromised and/or beholden to the Chinese Communist Party with sweetheart deals and/or bribes --- not unlike Hillary's massive pay-to-play scheme. 

The CEO of Hunter Biden's shell corporation of graft, Tony Bobulinski, a life-long Democrat, came forward to warn the American people of all the details of their sordid Biden corruption. Joe Biden was part of $millions in graft from China's communist party-linked companies. Again, the nation was left un-informed. Also add that Biden bragged that he got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired so as to not expose Biden family's Burisma corruption.

The "fix" was in for Biden and Harris all along.   For all practical purposes, Biden and Harris didn't even campaign. Apparently "The plan" was for him to stay hidden even during the last week of campaigning, but Trump was having dozens of gangbuster rallies with massive attendance and enthusiasm. So Joe and Kamala "hit" the campaign trail at the end and spoke to empty fields and empty venues. Cher try to cheer on a handful of Biden supporters in Las Vegas before she gave up entirely in just 10 or 15 minutes. No one was there. Meanwhile Trump had a reported 57,000 followers show up outside of Pittsburgh. Biden and Harris basically hid from view and said little to avoid making gaffes and showing incompetence.

During election night as Trump saw comfortable leads in all of the toss-up states, then suddenly counting was discontinued late night on November 3rd in all these key states! Mere 4 or 5 hours later, in the middle of the night, suddenly those leads were dramatically reduced with 10,000s of ballots for Biden (only) were produced. Countless other irregularities are also reported.

Remember, Nancy Pelosi told us months ago that it would appear that Trump would be winning on election night, but then it would change later.  Also, Biden slipped in a very recent interview, saying that "he had assembled the biggest voter fraud organization in history."  

These people told you their plan. 

We're Seeing the Largest Fraud and Election Scandal Ever Committed In America -- EVER

The entire massive Democrat-Media-Entertainment-Deep State COLLUSION has maintained an endless drumbeat of false accusations directed at President Trump throughout his administration and during BOTH of his campaigns. The election interference or "meddling" is really outrageous. Russia didn't "meddle" in elections, the DEMOCRATS did!

Fraudulent FISA warrants allowed Obama, Hillary and Democrat machine to spy on Trump before and after the 2016. No one has paid any price or has been held accountable. This led to the Mueller scam, the post-Mueller scam and an endless number of frauds thereafter. This unholy alliance has created propaganda and election-meddling interference on steroids all along---all the way to Trump's 2nd election night. 

The corrupt Left-wing media cabal has been creating fraudulent reporting all along: the Russia Hoax, the Mueller "Investigation" Hoax, the still-ongoing Mike Flynn Hoax, the Roger Stone Hoax, the RENEWED Russia Hoax after it was debunked!, the despicable Fine People Hoax, all the variously insane Hate Crime Hoaxes, the White Nationalist Hate Hoaxes, the "Nation of Hate" hoax at CNN, the "Impeachment" Hoax and on and on.......

Trump was accused of quid pro quo in a Ukraine Hoax, but it was Biden that was proven to have had undue influence on Ukraine.  Biden bragged that he got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired so as to not expose the Burisma corruption in obvious quid pro quo..

Trump was accused of collusion with Russia, but it was Hillary that was found to have colluded with Russia by creating the Steele dossier and an underhanded deal to sell USA's Uranium One to the Russians in a huge graft scam that included Mueller and Rosenberg from the FBI!

We know that Google subversively altered search results to give more Democrat-led "news" articles and less of Conservative ones. One study shows that Google has been able to manipulate search results to shift 15 million votes to the Left without any paper trail

Twitter is notorious and obvious about it's war on Conservatives, led by Jack "Rasputin" Dorsey who hides in a foreign country for his own safety apparently. He admitted in testimony that they basically employ a mob-rule style of fact-checking and censorship. It's mob is full of know-nothing 20-something Leftists on the both coasts that decides "truth" according to these little idiots.

Jack "Rasputin" Dorsey
After the 2020 election, The Fraud News Networks have all lost their minds in insanely biased propaganda and virtually 100% biased FOR Democrats and against Trump and Republicans. Their insanity and hatred AFTER the election is really off-the-charts.  From Martin Armstrong
"A Milwaukee news anchor is off the air for saying why “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek died this year while Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell keeps on ticking. CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour, who I once respected, compared President Trump’s four years in office to Kristallnacht which began the Holocaust in Germany. The sheer hatred being put out by those on various news organizations is unbelievable."
Other frauds that we know of:

Voting software with known glitches, Dominion Voting, was used in 33 states and in all the battleground states. In Michigan, a "glitch" in the voting software caused 6000 votes to be transferred to Biden from Trump......until someone discovered it. This is the same system scam used in 33 states.

What I find most disturbing is the impunity with which Democrats are gaming the system. They’re not even trying to cover their tracks. They are 100% certain that there will be no consequences for their actions. They know that the media, which should be a watchdog on behalf of American citizens, is actually an arm of the Democrat party that will do everything necessary to cover for Democrat election crimes.

The Possible Solution

From Martin Armstrong, he's proposed 
The ONLY way out I see is to declare the 20th Amendment unconstitutional for its lack of a process in the middle of a national emergency making the election impossible [Doug here, the 20th Amend is the place that puts a hard date on the election and for inauguration, but Armstrong is arguing that we need an "extension" in the current election due to shear quantity of irregularities]. Put Pence in charge temporarily and call for a new election banning mail-ins other than people actually unable to vote such as invalids or those overseas. Create an APP whereby everyone votes online. It cross-references to the IRS and sees if they are currently filing taxes. The IRS can send the link to vote and that will eliminate dead people voting. Then, perhaps the nation MIGHT accept the winner. Otherwise, as Julius Caesar said, people will still believe what they want to believe.

CHS: The Greatest Bubble Of All Time

Sports fans debate who qualifies as GOAT--the greatest of all time: in hoops, Kobe, Jordan, Kareem, Magic; in boxing, Ali, and so forth.

What we have today is GBOAT--the greatest bubble of all time That it's GOAT is beyond doubt, as the charts below reveal.

Bubbles have a few unique characteristics which cannot be captured by financial metrics. The most important such characteristic is that mainstream financial managers don't see it as a bubble. For those who do admit valuations may be a bit stretched (heh), these professionals shrug and say that since the music's still playing, they have to keep dancing, i.e. yes there may be a bubble but it won't pop anytime soon.

The other characteristic of a bubble is that it continues expanding far beyond historic valuation redlines, as if nothing in the real world (earnings, multiples, etc.) actually matters. Anyone proclaiming such extremes are unsustainable is laughed off the stage as extremes become more extreme, and those who bet against the tsunami of euphoric confidence that this isn't a bubble can be found huddled in a cardboard box beneath the freeway overpass, begging for a handful of Cheetos.

Another characteristic worth noting is the acceleration of duration, amplitude and volatility as bubbles reach their zenith. So while bulls are cheering the greatest post-election rally in 73 years (or was it 743 years? 2,743 years? Whatever...), they should be quaking in their designer boots for what increasingly manic rallies are signaling: it's about to pop, baby.

Jesse Felder of succinctly summarized the case for GBOAT in This Is The Textbook Definition Of "Late Cycle" In The Stock Market (Zero Hedge).

The charts below bolster the (painfully obvious) case for this being the greatest bubble of all time.

Wilshire total stock market capitalization to nominal GDP: record disconnect from GDP.

Regression to trend: all-time high. (via

Private sector financial assets as a percentage of GDP: all-time high

Every leg higher takes less time and reaches greater extremes:

So enjoy the greatest bubble of all time but watch the clock. Those Cinderella gains vanish at midnight.[Doug here: this bubble has been going for a long, long time. It's certainly not a good way to trade the market in the short or even medium term. I have been wrong, wrong, wrong about the markets as the Federal Reserve and Government have been so successful in "kicking the can" seemingly forever.  Where it stops, no one knows]

The Moral and Emotional Injuries of Abortion

Guest Post at Burning Platform by Mary Christine

Read Part One

The next day, I stuffed all of those feelings deep down inside and went on with life as if nothing ever happened. Many of us are very good at emotionally numbing ourselves so that we can appear to function normally after dealing with this kind of trauma. We just keep on keeping on. It’s really not that easy, though. The impact this has on us both physically and emotionally is great. The scientific community likes to pretend that there is no impact. One small study of about 800 women comparing PTSD symptoms between women who obtained an abortion with women who were unable to obtain an abortion found no difference in PTSD symptoms. It did admit that:

“This study has some limitations. Findings from this study are limited to symptoms of PTSD. Without clinical diagnosis, we were unable to assess whether women went on to develop full PTSD. Furthermore, we were unable to precisely identify the source of women’s trauma. In-depth qualitative interviews about women’s lives would have been better able to explore the coexisting stresses and complex life experiences that may have contributing to symptoms of PTSD.”

In other words, this study was a waste of time and money. No widespread unbiased studies have been done because of the politics behind it. There would be a terrible price to pay for the abortion industry if it was ever shown that abortion damages the mothers and fathers whose lives have been altered because of the after effects of abortion. Because abortion is all about women’s health, right?

An internet search for Post-Abortion Syndrome will return links to Ramah International, a Christian ministry dedicated to helping women and men recover from the after-effects of abortion. Another link will take you to, a private organization dedicated to researching the physical and mental effects abortion has had on women. According to their website:

“There is no disagreement over the fact that abortion may trigger, worsen, or exacerbate mental health problems, but rather the main controversy is over whether abortion is ever the sole cause of severe mental illnesses, according to David Reardon, director of the Elliot Institute and author of the review published in Sage Open Medicine. Additional conflicts arise over how known facts are best interpreted and over the definition of key terms."

Notably, while many pro-choice activists dismiss the idea of any link between abortion and mental health issues, this denial of any and all links is supported by AMH minimalists whose own research has confirmed higher rates of mental illness following abortion for some women.

For example, even the hand-picked team of abortion-supporting psychologists who wrote the 2008 Report of the American Psychological Association Task Force on Mental Health and Abortion, acknowledged that “it is clear that some women do experience sadness, grief, and feelings of loss following termination of a pregnancy, and some experience clinically significant disorders, including depression and anxiety.”

Indeed, the APA Task Force went further, identifying at least 15 risk factors which can be used to identify the women who are at greater risk of psychological problems after an abortion:
  • terminating a pregnancy that is wanted or meaningful
  • perceived pressure from others to terminate a pregnancy
  • perceived opposition to the abortion from partners, family, and/or friends

I would encourage you to go to the link to the entire article. It’s a rather long but very informative article that gives you a well-balanced insight into both sides of the argument.

I think we can agree that pregnancy, regardless of whether it is planned or unplanned, will change your life. Even when you think you are ready to have a child you are confronted with all kinds of physical and emotional changes that you have to learn to deal with. Our minds are in turmoil as we question how we are going to deal with the upheaval. As women, our bodies are changing quickly. A flood of hormones puts our emotions on a roller coaster up and down. Crying jags can come on for what seems to be no apparent reason. If the pregnancy is unexpected, then we are dealing with even more emotional turmoil and it can be very hard, if not impossible to make a reasoned decision when we are in this state. The abortion industry knows this and women who are in a panic are easily convinced that having an abortion will solve all of our problems.

When we choose that option, it does seem to solve the immediate problem, at least in the short term. It does not relieve any of the problems that existed before the woman became pregnant. It is true that someone died so that we could deal with the rest of our lives the same way we were dealing with them before the pregnancy. Either way, abortion or not, there are consequences.

Statistics have gone back and forth between 1 in 3 and 1 in 4 women who have had at least one abortion by the age of 44. Half of those women will go back for a 2nd abortion, many times, within the next year. My mentor once had a woman walk into her office and confess that she had had 10 abortions. As peer-to-peer lay counselors, we are trained to help the post-abortive mother. We are also trained to know when to send them to get professional help. This woman was so far gone that my friend said she wasn’t sure that she could ever recover.

So we make our choice, and we stuff those feelings way deep down inside so that we can continue to function. Or do we? What kind of emotional blowback is there after an abortion? A year ago I wrote an essay entitled “What Really Made Women Go Nuts?” in response to another essay entitled “Why Did Women Go Nuts?”. Neither essay addressed the proliferation of abortion, although the subject came up in comments under both.

Since 1972 abortion went from around 100,000 a year, which was a rough estimate to about 1.5 million a year. What are the underlying emotional problems that arise after an abortion? Maybe we should first examine what are the most common reasons women have them in the first place?

Number one on the list is “Having a baby would dramatically change my life”. Coming in at a close second is “financial strain”. Relationship problems and a desire to avoid single motherhood are also high up on the list. The health of the mother and fetal health factored in, as well as women who have decided they are done bearing children.

Done bearing children. The surprise baby. Born 17 years after my brother, with no siblings in between, I was a surprise baby. If my mother had decided she didn’t want to start all over again raising another child I would not be here. All she had to do was tell the doctor that she would commit suicide if she had to continue the pregnancy. She was embarrassed enough to quit her job before she began to show. I don’t believe that maternity leave was offered back then so she would have had to quit anyway. I wonder how many of us would not be here if abortion had been legal much earlier than 1973? But I digress.

We always feel like abortion is our only choice. That’s rather ironic, isn’t it? Very few women will consider adoption. The reason given for this aversion to adoption is that it is wrong to give your baby away to someone else. I can relate to that feeling. I did not want to carry a baby for nine months, only to give it away for someone else to raise. Honestly, ever since then I have looked in awe and admiration at women who were able to do that. At least they let their child have a chance at life.

There is no doubt that an unplanned pregnancy feels like a crisis. Pregnancies that result from rape or incest can certainly be called a crisis, but those pregnancies are quite rare and even women who have abortions for those will have emotional problems that are not solved by the abortion. Pregnancy is a part of life but we have turned it into a disease that needs to be remedied.

People who have never had to deal with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy will commonly ask why, when there are so many options for birth control available, is this such a big problem for society? The answer to that question is complicated. The short answer is that for many women, hormonal birth control, which is the most reliable form of birth control, is not really as reliable as it is stated on the package inserts. Hormonal birth control must be taken at the same time of day, every day, without missing a single pill to reach the upper 90% effective target. Any variation from this and the reliability begins to drop. Other drugs can interfere with the efficacy. Many women have unpleasant side effects and are unable to take them. The biggest reason seems to be that women and men either are not consistent with it or they don’t practice it at all.

60 million abortions since 1973 are the result of our sexual escapades. Do you think it is possible to have that many people dealing with the kinds of emotional blowback that underlies abortions and have a sane society? If it feels like society is becoming more and more insane, there has to be a reason for it.

Some of the most common emotional difficulties that women experience after an abortion are:
  • Flashbacks or nightmares
  • Compulsive thoughts and feelings that started after the abortion
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Lack of attachment to your children (bonding issues)
  • Self-hatred
  • Shame
  • Social isolation
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Compulsive or addictive behaviors that started after abortion
  • Anger
Do you ever wonder why the divorce rate is so high? No doubt there are other reasons but relationship difficulties following an abortion are bound to factor in. You see, we never link having an abortion to any of the other problems we might be having in our lives.

I really did go on to function as normal, married mother of two children for many years after my abortion. At least that is what I thought. A health crisis in my early 40’s caused me to think back on my life and even though I was very pro-choice at the time, I began to think about my abortion. I began to believe that I deserved to die for what I had done and no matter how I tried to divert my attention, those thoughts would not go away. Eventually, the crisis was remedied and the thoughts did go away for a while.

About a year later I had an encounter with the Lord and became a Christian. Sometimes this will change the minds of people immediately but more often than not, it’s a process and I remained pro-choice for a couple years after that.

One evening, I happened to be watching Fox News and Bill O’Reilly was interviewing actress Jennifer O’Neil. She had written a book about her experiences with abortions and her testimony brought me to tears. It forced me to look at my abortion from a different angle than I ever had before. Over the next few days I came to the decision that I wanted to help other women, not really understanding that in order to help others, I had to deal with my own issues that were intertwined within my psyche like the roots of a dandelion.

Fortunately, most crisis pregnancy centers understand this and they will require a volunteer who wants to work directly with clients to go through a post-abortion recovery class before she be in direct contact with the clients. I have spent more than 10 years serving in some capacity with a CPC and later a ministry that serves only post-abortion mothers and fathers. I stepped away from it in the past year but I will serve again, sometime in the near future. There is a definite need for this type of service.

“What do these classes look like?” you might be wondering. They go by different names but they all deal with the emotional stages women go through after an abortion.
  1. Relief
  2. Denial
  3. Anger
  4. Depression
  5. Grief
Forgiveness and acceptance are necessary to be able to move past the other stages and the class helps us to learn to do that. Like many of the women that take these classes, I was certain that I understood forgiveness and equally certain that I was not angry with anyone connected with my abortion. I was certain that I had moved past those things years before. I was wrong, and most of the time, they are too. Women don’t want to open up those old wounds but there is infection still there and it nearly always rears its head as we journey through the class.

Occasionally there is a woman who, it seems, has built a brick wall made of ice around her heart and we facilitators wonder if we are having any impact.

Forgiveness is the hardest brick to remove. It’s hard enough to forgive others who were involved in some way with our decision. When it comes to forgiving ourselves, that takes it to a whole new level. Scripturally there is nothing in the Bible about forgiving ourselves. It’s really not so much about self-forgiveness; it’s more about stopping the self-condemnation.

“4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame Ps 34 NIV

Near the end of the class, we have a memorial for their children. At If Not For Grace Ministries, where I most recently volunteered, we have a weekend retreat and on the final day before we leave to go home, we set up a chapel. We encourage the women to choose an item, or write a letter to memorialize their child who has passed on. This is when we will see the ice break. This is when we will see them finally be able to move on. Never have we had a mother who was not positively affected by this experience.

Always, they believed they did not have a right to grieve. We give them a real chance to put it all behind them, not to forget, because that will never happen, but to finally cut all of the chains they have been dragging around with them. This all may sound weird or creepy but it is not just a Christian issue. Japanese women have their own way of dealing with pregnancy loss and abortion and it’s not by ignoring it, they too have memorials for their lost children.

Very few women will take advantage of these types of classes. Partly because they are unaware they exist and partly because they are afraid to open up those old wounds.

Men are affected as well, and even fewer men will ever be able to put their experience behind them. I wonder, what does it feel like, having no voice in whether your child lives or dies?

“While studies on the impact of abortion on men are scarce, available research and anecdotal evidence shows that men can experience problems such as broken relationships; sexual dysfunction; substance abuse; feelings of self-hatred; risk-taking and suicidal behavior; increasing feelings of grief over time; feelings of helplessness, guilt, and depression; greater tendencies toward becoming angry and violent; and feelings connected to a sense of lost manhood.”

Numerous musicians have written about their experiences with abortion, even Eminem. It is raw in typical Eminem style. The video is a mini-documentary recounting how he is unable to forget about his child.

“I can’t keep my lies straight, but I made you terminate my baby; This love triangle left us in a wreck, tangled,” he raps. “What else can I say? It was fun for a while, bet I really woulda loved your smile, didn’t really wanna abort, but f*** it — what’s one more lie, to tell our unborn child?”

It is sad, because the insanity will continue until we realize what we are doing to ourselves.

Figurehead Joke Biden to Allow the Dirty Rotten Swamp RATS to Run Rampant

From Raul Ilargi Meijer at Automatic Earth Blog:

"With Biden you don’t just get Biden, you get the entire cabal that went after Trump: the Democratic Party, the media, the intel agencies... How people do not find that a whole lot scarier than Donald Trump is beyond me..."

Since the US has no official institution to call an election soon after the polls have closed, and people want a result fast, it has befallen on the media to make the announcement. And by and large, this hasn’t been that big a deal. But when those same media have for 4 years relentlessly hounded one of the two candidates, it should be obvious that this “system” should not be applied. If only because it has no legal status whatsoever.

However, people both in the US and abroad don’t appear to be aware of this. So when the New York Times et al declare a winner, this is seen as an “official” announcement. It is not. That won’t come until the Electoral College gathers in December (8-14th?!). And at least until then, Trump will have every right to contest the election in court. Still, “world leaders” are congratulating the “next president”. Do they really not know how this works?

The idea behind it all is obvious, of course: to make Trump look like a sore loser, and Biden the president-elect, a title the media claim they can bestow upon him. Do remember that both Biden’s and Kamala’s campaign were considered dead in the water at one point, before they were magically resurrected by the party machine, which ensured that =two people very unpopular in their own party now lead the ticket. Be careful what you wish for.

In that light. I found this intriguing. Twitter adds a warning to this Trump tweet: “Official sources may not have called the race when this was Tweeted”. I haven’t seen one instance where they attached the same warning to tweets about Biden winning and being President Elect. But wouldn’t that be the same thing?

No, I don’t particularly mind Biden winning, Washington is a shit hole whoever occupies the White House and other posts, but this is not about Biden. It’s about the people behind him. About the people who elected him to be a candidate, and that’s not his voters; it’s the DNC, the FBI and media that made him possible.

Everyone in the MSM is talking about Trump’s alleged lies, as they have for 5 screeching years, main news networks on Thursday even cut off/short a speech by the President of the United States -that must be a first-, but nobody reflects on the 5-year neverending constant lies they have all told ABOUT Trump, on the entire Russiagate episode, the Mueller report based on only lies, the whole shebang.

The DNC that paid for the Steele dossier without which there would never have been a Mueller special counsel, commissioned by Rod Rosenstein when he was Deputy Attorney General, which was based on lies, exclusively, the FBI that used the Dossier to falsify FISA applications, people like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi who kept on lying about having evidence of Russian collusion.

And still these are the people accusing Trump of lying. And they feel they can get away with it, because their media also incessantly repeated their lies, and is still doing that. Forget for a moment about what you think about Donald Trump, and tell me how you feel about an attempt to unseat an elected American president with nothing but lies.

Do you think that will be a one-off? If so, you’re blind. If Joe Biden and his handlers ever get into the White House, respect for the Office of the Presidency will still be gone, and it will be for a long time, decades. That’s the price the American people pay for the attempt to unseat Trump based on lies only. Do you really feel that’s a price worth paying? I suggest you give that some serious thought.

With Biden you don’t get Biden, you get the entire cabal that went after Trump, the Democratic Party, the media, the intelligence agencies. And yes, Biden was and is very much part of that cabal. How people do not find that a whole lot scarier than Donald Trump is beyond me.

If -and no that is not when- Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20 2021, that cabal will take over the country. And we’ve seen plenty indications that they intend to make it impossible for the Republicans to ever get one of their own elected as president again. Moreover they will not be investigated for what they concocted over the past 4-5 years.

How the Hillary campaign and the DNC leaked things to the FBI, and the FBI to the MSM, how they lied in courtrooms to get FISA applications on Trump campaign people like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos. How they set up Lt.-Gen. Michael Flynn so he wouldn’t be Trump’s National Security Adviser, because Flynn knew too much.

It’s a scheme so full of illegal actions that it will be devastating for the entire American political system if it is never investigated, or even if it isn’t investigated very very thoroughly, by an impartial party. And it won’t be if Biden becomes president.

The cabal wants you to think this is about Trump, and any given way to get rid of him is justifiable no matter what, but that is a very dangerous way of thinking. If crimes have been committed, they must be brought into daylight and before a court.

Problem is, of course, that at least half the nation has no idea of what’s been going on. Because they get their news and information from those media that are in on the whole deal. They won’t know that the DNC paid for the Steele Dossier, or that is was just a bunch of lies, or that the FBI knew this even before Rosenstein appointed Mueller as Special Counsel. All that has been kept away from them.

And yes, 4 years ago Trump said he would fight the swamp, but landed right in the middle of it. Early in his presidency he found himself surrounded by the likes of McMaster, John Kelly, Tillerson, and many other swamp creatures, and today he still has people like Mike Pompeo. But at least Trump is an outsider, and if anything can ever be done to drain the swamp, it will have to come from an outsider. That it may take more than 4 years is something we have to take for granted.

The swamp has fought back, and they may yet win. Joe Biden is the face of that. But people who celebrate that victory should think again, whether they like Trump or not. The swamp is not good for you, and it’s not good for your country, your rights, your freedoms. Its entire MO is to take all these away from you. This is not a partisan thing; the fat ass of the swamp easily fits and sits across the divide.

Joe Biden is not Joe Biden, the man doesn’t stand for anything other than holding on to power while getting richer off that power. He’s done it for 47 years. Term limits are desperately needed in Washington, but the only people who can make that decision are those who profit most from not having term limits. If there’s one area where McConnell and Schumer and Pelosi and Lindsey Graham agree, it’s that.

And meanwhile, Trump, unlike Joe Biden, is just Trump. He doesn’t represent a cabal, or a swamp. Even if he’s surrounded by them. Trump is not the biggest threat to America, that’s just something they’ve been wanting you to think for the past 4 years. Successfully, too, for millions of Americans.

The swamp is the biggest threat, whether their handpuppets come in a Democratic or Republican disguise. But to recognize that, you would have to be able to think for yourself, and if you read or watch the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, you simply can’t do that. You just think you can.

The Nation Should Have a (Partial?) Election Do-over or Electors Must Act

I think we need a do-over election in all the contested states. If necessary, Trump should declare a national emergency (Insurrection Act) to organize the national guard to supervise a re-election in those states. They should bypass any computer or terminal and use scan-able cards (like we used to use to take tests using a No. 2 pencil) so that the results can be scanned and quickly determined.

The guard can ask for voter ID to verify if someone is registered. No hanky-panky this time.

This is necessary for the integrity of our democracy. If it happens to show that the Dems cheated, that too is necessary to uncover. If the re-do shows the same results, then Trump can apologize to the nation.

Another avenue of redress is to mobilize the Electors from the disputed states to throw out the false results and choose to re-elect Trump despite popular (fake?) vote.  This is EXACTLY what the electoral college is for!  The Electoral college was designed to negate "mob rule," fraud and madness of crowds.

From the patriot Tom Luongo:
"The legal case is being built now to go to the State Legislatures, who are the ones who actually decide whose electors go to the Electoral College, and invalidate the votes in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan, at a minimum.— Jim Jatras (@JimJatras) November 6, 2020


Getting those Republican-controlled legislatures to throw out the suggested results of a tainted election is exactly why the Electoral College exists. It is the last defense against mob rule and the corrupting nature of politics. The commies in the DNC and The Davos Crowd don’t like to hear that and frankly don’t care but that is the reality of it.
That’s Trump’s path to the presidency at this point, because the votes will be tallied to ensure that he not only loses but lose by a large enough ‘electoral vote’ majority to nullify any rulings by the Supreme Court."

We all need to pray for real Patriots to act for the good of the country, since nothing else in this country is even remotely functional or un-corrupted including the courts.

Paul Craig Roberts: Evidence Mounts of a Stolen Election

 From Paul Craig Roberts at

United States Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney explains a special software developed by the National Security Agency that can be used to alter vote counts in elections. He explains the software and its use in this 7 minute video:

In this article, the Off-Guardian explains the use of the software to alter the outcome of the vote in Wisconsin and Michigan:

In this article the Fake News Site, CNN, attempts to explain away the obviously altered vote:

Voting by mail greatly facilitates the use of the vote-altering software and the use of ballot dumps. One reason for the mask mandate and Covid fear was to justify mass voting by mail.

The media speaks with one voice. The print, TV, NPR, social media, and the anti-Trump Internet sites exercise censorship and control the explanations.

We are experiencing a well designed and successful coup against American democracy and accountable government.

No, this is not a conspiracy theory. It is a revolution against red state America.

Republicans are too establishment to effectively fight back. They fear that exposing and resisting a stolen election would discredit American democracy. In effect, patriotism makes them impotent.

Republicans should think instead what it means to be governed by a President covered in criminal scandal who also seems to be suffering mental confusion and is likely for one or both of these reasons to be moved aside. If Kamala Harris becomes president, we will have in the Oval Office a female of color who hates white people and is vindictive against them.

The Democrat Party is now in the hands of indoctrinated leftists who despise the working class and champion “oppressed minorities.” Immigration floodgates will be thrown open. Red states will be cut out of the federal budget. Gutsy Republicans such as Devin Nunes and Jim Jorden will be falsely investigated, and Trump will be falsely prosecuted. The rest of us will be silenced in one way or the other.

Think about how unlikely the Biden/Harris ticket is for success. Everyone knows that Biden suffers mental confusion. His campaign events were barely attended. Harris had so little support in the Democrat primaries that she was the first to drop out. Even the Democrats didn’t want her; yet she ends up the Democrat VP choice. Americans watched as Democrat regimes in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and other cities responded to rioting and looting by hampering and defunding the police.

How can such an unattractive party whose elected officials refused to enforce law and order win the presidential election?

The answer is fraud.

Whether or not you believe this report from a US Postal Service employee that he was ordered to backdate late mail-in ballots in Michigan, it serves as an example of how easy voting by mail makes vote fraud:

The threat posed to democracy by the software described by General McInerney is devastating. With such software in the hands of intelligence services, every election in every country can be decided behind the scenes.

This makes it easier for elites to rule. The vote altering software turns democracy into a cover for self-interested rule. Yes, elites have always tried to purchase elections, but now they can program them.

I have often written that the digital revolution was the greatest threat humanity faces. Proof piles up every day.

Accelerating US Collapse Due to Massive Incompetence and Corruption

In an almost unreal situation, dementia-addled Joe Biden and the proven "biggest-loser" Kamala Harris are close to "winning" the 2020 election. What's amazing is how Joe hid in his basement nearing the entire campaign season. "The plan" was for him to stay hidden even during the last week of campaigning, but Trump was having dozens of gangbuster rallies with massive attendance and enthusiasm. So Joe and Kamala hit the campaign trail at the end and spoke to empty fields and empty venues. Cher try to cheer on a handful of Biden supporters in Las Vegas before she gave up entirely in just 10 or 15 minutes. No one was there. Meanwhile Trump had a reported 57,000 followers show up outside of Pittsburgh. 

During election night as Trump saw comfortable leads in all of the toss-up states, then suddenly counting was discontinued in all these states! Mere hours later, in the middle of the night, suddenly those leads were dramatically reduced with 10,000s of ballots for Biden (only) were produced. Countless other irregularities are also reported.

It appears to me that the fix was in for Biden/Harris all along. Why else was their campaign strategy to stay out of sight and out of scrutiny for virtually the entire campaign?? The answer is presumably so as to not embarrass themselves with gaffes and stupidity. These people and their handlers are the most stupid, conniving, corrupted and incompetent people on the earth and they are about to take the White House and maybe the government. The Deep State is firmly in control of this country.

Speaking of total corruption, the US media complex was entirely successful in killing the convincing evidence that the Biden's are compromised and/or beholden to the Chinese Communist Party with sweetheart deals and/or bribes --- not unlike Hillary's massive pay-to-play scheme. Again, 1/2 of the nation was left uninformed. No need to even bring up the Burisma corruption. Apparently this behavior is not illegal. Presumably it's going on in both political parties, but not during Trump's administration. After countless investigations, Trump has proven to be the most spotless, upstanding and honest dealing candidate ever. Every accusation against him has been disproven. He's basically passed every test. There may never be another one like him. 

A near total collapse of competence in corporate governance and the US government is worsening. The government sectors can't do anything right, including counting votes in an election. So, this election is royally screwed-up. The "government" cannot even remotely manage our immigration "system" or even track those persons visiting on visas. It's total and utter incompetence and $100s of billions are spent on a vast number of employees to accomplish LESS than nothing. 

See my prescient 2016 post Time For A New American Revolution: Burn Down Our Bloated, Failing Central Planning Bureaucracy!. It's definitely worth a re-read. I said:

"Much of the Federal Government and Federal Reserve "central planning" bureaucracies should be largely burnt to the ground. There are so many failures and it is so expensive that they are threatening our Nation. The "Government" colossus is marching our once-great country to ruin. Anything the US Government touches turns to shit. How can anyone want more of it?? Dismantle it! Devolve power back to the States. Save our nation from financial and social ruin!"

US government statistics are becoming as bad as China's with falsified economic numbers, especially inflation. Virtually nothing is working in "government" except the redistribution of $trillions to elderly and welfare recipients and massive payments to the military, medical and pharmaceutical cartels and it's own unionized "workers" who sit around all day watching Pornhub.

But the government doesn't even have the money to redistribute, so the Federal Reserve is "printing" or creating excess reserves in the banking system in an asset swap to buy Treasuries to fund the government. This is a well known trick of diluting the monetary aggregates in a way that doesn't produce inflation right away. Since it's been proven that the Federal Reserve's excess reserves CANNOT be reduced, those reserves remain in the hands of the top 0.01% to do as they please and enrich themselves fabulously. Eventually, those reserves will leak out into markets or loaned-out to the crony-capitalists. Eventually inflation will appear (I realize that it hasn't happened yet, except for financial asset inflation).

From my post The Second American Revolution Pt 2: The Massive Reset That We Need

The massive amount of debt written in recent decades, now totally unsustainable in a slow-growth environment, has to default to a more sustainable level. This will blow-up the entire world economy in a massive financial, economic and humanitarian crisis. In fact, analysts at Deutsche Bank said the following:

"..the global financial system remains broken and extremely fragile. Secular stagnation trends are everywhere. The world has too big a debt burden for the current growth environment. We would feel far more comfortable if the world went through a huge creative destruction period where zombie, inefficient debt was allowed to default - thus 'right-sizing' the ratio between debt and GDP. However we've long accepted that this is highly unlikely to happen outside of perhaps a future break-up of the Euro."
The US government is ruining our economy and our society!  Stagnating incomes coupled with inflation of health care, rent, college tuition, even defense procurement costs are all the result of government spending or policy. Rising rents are caused by zero interest rates engineered by the Federal Reserve, who have created a new housing bubble that is pricing out a new generation of buyers and hurting the economy. If you can't buy, you must rent. But even the price of renting is a severe hardship to many, many people. It's really a catastrophe as record high house prices aren't sustainable at "normal" interest rates. The geniuses, the educated idiots like Bernanke and Yellen, haven't thought about what happens when rates and mortgage rates rise again with record high house prices? No one can afford anything! "Government" is CAUSING THIS!

The government-funded tuition bubble has also priced-out the next generation. It's also loaded-up millions of young people with unsustainable debt that is already collapsing

Meanwhile debt at all levels, and across the world continue to pile-up with no end in sight. Perhaps, like Japan, the US will be able to skate by and double our national debt (once again) in the coming decade or so. It's possible. But peripheral countries like Nigeria, Venezuela, Italy, Portugal, Russia and many, many other countries can not sustain stagnated economies coupled with higher debts. Something will break. Sovereign debt defaults will bring down the banking system in Europe and start the end-game crisis.

From my April 2020 post Our Dystopian Future: Recession Without End

Figure 1 US GDP After the GFC in 2008
Shows Organic Contraction

 In my post Why Our Economy is in Depression and Will Get Worse, and We're Reaching the End of the Road, I mention a number of reasons for why our economy has already been mired in prolonged recessionary conditions and why things won't be improving anytime soon. For instance, I've pointed out that if you subtract government spending that was funded by debt, US GDP has actually contracted since the first Great Financial Crisis (GFC).

Figure 1 shows that the US GDP has shrunk by $5.9 Trillion since 2007, if you back out debt-financed spending in the government sector alone. This is Recession Without End (otherwise known as "Depression").

I wrote in 2016  America's March to 3rd World Status, Then Collapse

"The key thing about the march to 3rd world, is when politicians will say or do anything to stay in power and don't give a shit about the good of their country. This is made worse when the media is in bed with these very people and act as their propaganda apparatus to "cover up" the truth.
Crisis is coming to our country and world and it's being brought to you by failed politicians and horrible central bankers. It's "baked-in." Crises have already enveloped many countries in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Crisis always starts at the periphery and works toward the core. Next will be Europe and Russia [should have said China]. The Brexit vote is signaling EU political and financial collapse there in the months ahead. China is drowning in bad debts--- debts taken out to literally "save the world" in 2009 until 2014. Massive devaluations in China will reverberate around the world. Banking crises in Europe will bring back financial crisis conditions soon to the entire world. I don't see a way out as everything is so broken."

I don't see a way out since everything and EVERYONE is so corrupted and broken. Biden and Harris will not only be able to do nothing to stop the oncoming train, THEY ARE THE TRAIN.
