Our Economic Misery Isn’t an Accident, It’s the Plan

Americans can’t afford to buy a used car or even gas because the Left doesn’t want them to drive. They can’t buy homes because the Left wants to destroy the suburbs and force everyone to live in megacities. They have trouble buying meat because the Left wants them to eat soy.

The same is true for the whole exercise in planned economic misery that we’re experiencing.

Take Hoover's "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" and reverse it. That's the goal. What we’re living through is not an unintentional accident: it’s the American Holodomor.

The Left doesn’t want you to be able to drive, buy a home, or enjoy a burger.

Naive Republicans will say that, “Biden is not paying enough attention to the border” or “Biden is not paying enough attention to inflation”.

That’s like saying Jack the Ripper wasn’t paying enough attention to cutting up prostitutes.

2 million illegal aliens are expected to invade America because the Biden administration is paying a whole lot of attention to keeping the border open. That’s why it’s busy fighting in court to dump Title 42 so that every illegal alien who crosses the border will be sure to come here.

When an administration makes increasing the flow of illegal aliens a core legal priority for the DOJ, that means it’s paying a whole lot of attention to it. Much like Jack paid a lot of attention to ladies of the evening. The Biden administration doesn’t believe that there should be a border.

That’s why the border is open wider than Biden’s brain on a Tuesday night.

There are predictions that gas will hit $6 a gallon nationwide by the summer because the Biden administration has worked hard to raise energy prices and create artificial shortages. Biden’s people just got through once again sabotaging oil and gas leases because they want higher energy prices. $6 a gallon is not the result of political inattentiveness, that is the plan.

Inflation isn’t an unintentional accident either. The Left spends like drunken sailors to feed its agenda, but also because spending is an innate good in the Cloward-Piven sense. Devalue money and you wipe out the middle class. Then you can reboot the economy on new terms.

Biden wasted trillions of dollars and is busy blaming “corporate greed” for high prices.

Meanwhile, inflation is doing what it’s meant to do, wiping out savings, and triggering retaliatory interest rate hikes to “cool down” the economy. The middle class ends up poorer and more vulnerable, government dependency rises and social mobility falls. Socialism starts looking better every day. That’s how it worked in the twentieth century and still works today.

All of this is terrible for Biden’s poll numbers, but that’s only a problem for Hunter Biden and whatever Chinese, Ukrainian or American oligarchs are paying his crack bills this week..

Picking a dementia patient for the presidency was always a suicide mission. Republicans are somewhat right in that Biden really isn’t paying attention to the economy or much of anything else. On a good day he can mumble his way through a teleprompter and then go back down to the basement for some ice cream. It’s the radical leftists around him who call the shots.

Putting Senator Elizabeth Warren in the White House would have led to the same programs, but the blame would have been directed at the Left. This way, the Left gets its agendas through while the blame falls on the most out-of-it leader of a major world power since King George III.

The Left is wearing Biden like a skin suit and will casually discard him when it’s done. That’s why the media is suddenly interested in that “Russian disinformation” about Hunter’s laptop.

Biden was dumb enough to think he had finally made it, when he was just the Left’s fall guy.

And while he may be incapable of paying attention to anything, his administration is cheering every price increase. The worse life gets for us, the closer the Left gets to its core agendas.

High gas prices aren’t “Putin’s price hike”, but they’re not even “Biden’s price hike”, they’re the “Left’s price hike”. Car and gas prices are meant to squeeze Americans out of car ownership. It’s such an unsubtle ploy that administration members will actually boast about it. And then they’ll urge Americans to buy $60,000 electric cars that they know people can’t afford.

The utterly blatant goal is to eliminate millions of cars by making it too expensive to drive.

And Democrats are working on this on multiple ends, from environmental and safety regulations, to raising gas prices, to artificial car shortages. Even those who can afford an electric car or get a government subsidized one will be kept off the road by high power rates.

Home prices? The Left has spent generations trying to kill the suburbs and the housing market. Much as it’s worked very hard to wipe out private sector medicine by using the stresses of the system against it. Making the private market for a good or service completely inaccessible for the vast majority of people paves the way for nationalizing it. The Left does not want people living in smaller communities. It has plainly said that everyone should have to live in cities.

Taking out the home and car markets are both means of limiting mobility and forcibly concentrating populations in dense urban clusters under their panopticons. These are the same strategies used by the Soviet Union and Communist China. And have the same intended end.

Food prices? The Left has been equally adamant that ordinary people must stop eating meat. Replacing traditional staples like bread and meat, milk and eggs, is another agenda item and was once again pursued through a combination of regulations, environmental, safety and animal rights measures, and more artificial shortages that are meant to transform the American diet.

You won’t be able to eat, drive or have a home to live in… and you will be told to be happy.

Or else.

This is not a conspiracy theory. The only assumption being made here is that the Left is achieving its stated goals as the result of a plan rather than a series of accidental coincidences.

Too many Republicans are failing to hold the Left accountable by refusing to state what is going on. Hanlon’s Razor, “never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity” is fine when it’s not being applied to an ideology that is achieving its objectives through its actions.

That’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s policy.

Pasting Biden’s “I Did It” stickers on gas pumps is fine, but he’s completely expendable.

If Americans don’t understand that our misery isn’t an accident or incompetence, but part of a plan then the downward cycle will continue to play out with increasingly worse outcomes.

Until the Left finally gets what it wants. And then the rest of us won’t have anything left.

    The goal is to switch the economy over to the prison economy. It has been being perfected for generations.

    Not but one way to even begin to save America, and that is to throw every democrat out of our Country.
    Just throw them out, let them perambulate down to Venezuela, which is already a socialist paradise.

    Putting personal gain and power above civic
    duty is common among politicians. Today we
    see contempt for America and its free valid

    Suppressed is common appreciation of why our
    heritage is strong enough to bond us with
    loyalty, pride, gratitude. Instead, there's
    envy, bitterness, sensitivity.

    From the snobbery of W. Wilson and FDR, brain
    trusts elbowed out our common sense. LBJ
    built a plantation of dependency. Obama, as
    intended, weakened us inside and out. He and
    his team continue.

    Sadly, most Republicans were too busy trying
    to get a seat at the "Cool Kids" table. They
    tried and failed at the welfare auction. It
    came as a surprise realizing citizenship
    meant little and we had to apologize for
    being American. Outsiders have a bigger lien
    on our future than our own kids.

    Please learn from Washington, Jefferson,
    Franklin, Lincoln, Ayn Rand, Ronald Reagan,
    Andrew Breitbart, Donald Trump, David Horowitz
    and Daniel Greenfield.

    As an old hillbilly once said, "I hate these people more than books."

    This isn't an overnight, or even a short term project. It takes time for achieve their ends, and although they've got a good start, they're going to have to find a way to "postpone" November's elections. If/when that happens we'll know they've declared all out war on the country. The left's propensity to short-term thinking may just come back to bite them.

  7. Exactly correct. And it ONLY will be stopped through force.

    Obama's running the show; these are all his policies.

      Obama was to my mind a socialist and a Globalist

    You must also consider that moves like the baby formula shortage initiate a policy of importing EU goods into the US---whether we like it or not. Kind of like the irrational policies the EU pushes, where the UK can't fish in its own waters.

    Absolutely. My hair catches on fire when I hear a 'pundit' say, "Biden needs to change his policies."

    I just read Mollie Hemingway's Federalist piece on the midterm elections. I strongly recommend it. I've been concerned that Republicans are crowing about the coming Red Wave. A plot is afoot to prevent it.

  12. Problem with inflation is that it's snowballing out of control judging by the last few months. Prices keep rising and rising without any sort of major increase in avg earnings over those months. By the time market reacts to this inflation rate - it's going to put so many out of business due to this lag...

    I agree with your premise 100% that we are seeing the results of a carefully executed plan by the left with bitem as the fall guy.
    One thing that is apparent, when the collapse comes, as it will, the left will not be spared. They think they will be, but they won't. Not being the first to be eaten by the alligator doesn't make you a survivor, it just prolongs the agony or the inevitable end.
