Good morning kids. Thursday and the October non-surprising surprise sliming of Herschel Walker five weeks before the midterms is appearing to be a flop. Polling shows him to still be in a virtual tie with Senate installee (no way he nor Ossoff legitimately won those races, despite the crappy candidates we had) Raphael “wife-beater” Warnock. If, as the prognosticator linked is correct in that this will go to a runoff, that is where the Democrats will probably try to pull off the steal. We shall see if Georgia’s latest voter integrity legislation is able to beat the attempt. On the other hand, the out of control crime wave that is ravaging the nation, in particular the areas of Democrat domination is emerging as a top concern for voters. Significantly, they blame the Democrats and their support for the Defund the Police movement and decriminalization of crime via bail reform, the emptying of jails and the non-prosecution of hardened criminals as the cause, despite the failed attempt at disavowal of same. And Warlock Warnock is as anti- law and order as the rest. In any case, election and polling guru extraordinaire Dave in FL will be on the next podcast to ponder this race as well as all the others and the factors behind the numbers, so BOLO for that.
Basta cosi. We are now circling the drain at a pace that should have us at the event horizon of a black hole within weeks if not days. I have to augment my chicken and egg question of “does the ideology drive the incompetence or vice versa” with “does the insanity drive the desperation or vice versa?” First up on the hit parade of what NOT to do in an energy crisis — aside from not intentionally destroying your own domestic petroleum industry — is not to piss off OPEC and specifically the Saudis when you come a cropper begging for more production. I should say not piss them off again, after labeling them as “a pariah state.”
But of course, he’s demented. And desperate. But, since proclaiming yesterday over a hot mic that “no one fucks with a Biden,” unless of course it’s Biden himself fucking his daughter in the shower, he lashed out at the Saudis in the wake of OPEC+ cutting production by not just one but two million barrels per day, seeing that as the moral equivalent of them telling him “Let’s Go Brandon!” to his face. Well, he’ll show them!
The White House on Wednesday accused the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC+) of siding with Russia by deciding to cut oil production.
“Look, it’s clear that OPEC+ is aligning with Russia with today’s announcement,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said to reporters aboard Air Force One. . .
. . . The White House was sharply critical of the OPEC+ decision to cut production by two million barrels a day, calling it “short-sighted” and a “mistake”. . .
. . . The White House did not make any mention of future efforts to increase domestic oil production but pointed to Biden’s efforts to increase the supply of green energy in the United States.
“With the Inflation Reduction Act, we are making a historic investment in accelerating the transition to clean energy,” Jean-Pierre said.
To be fair, the words came from Joey’s Malveaux-munching mop-top mouthpiece, but the insanity on every level is all his, or to be more precise his handlers’. Begging for more oil and being pissed you’re not getting it while there is literally one of the greatest reserves on the planet right under our own feet and prohibiting its extraction, while at the same time cheering on a “transition to clean energy.” And, driving a strategic ally directly into the arms of Vladimir Putin, ICBM-armed-to-the-teeth Vladimir Putin, while you’re allegedly trying to defeat his imperial designs on Ukraine? Yeah, that makes perfect sense. But wait, there’s more!
The Biden [junta] is now “preparing” to lift sanctions on Venezuela to allow Chevron to pump oil again from the leftist authoritarian regime in an attempt to stave off political disaster for the administration caused by rising fuel prices.
The [junta] would give “significant sanctions relief” if Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s regime held talks with the country’s political opposition and held free and fair elections in 2024. The [junta] has also worked out a deal freeing up hundreds of millions of dollars in Venezuelan funds that are frozen in U.S. banking institutions.
The Biden [junta] also released convicted narco traffickers related to Maduro in exchange for hostages taken by the regime, a move that could incentivize other hostile foreign powers to detain American citizens so they can use that as leverage over the Biden [junta].
“Well, the two Venezuelans that were released are the nephews of Maduro who happen to be convicted drug dealers,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said at the start of the week. “They were put in jail after being convicted after a fair trial in the United States. Evidence was produced and it was overwhelming.”
“That has now put a price tag on Americans. Every time you do one of these deals — and I wanted those people released as much as anybody,” Rubio continued. “But every time you do this, now others know, I can take Americans, I can hold them until I need something as a bargaining chip.”
Ask them if they care, Dondi. They don’t! They are desperate to keep the price of gasoline from rising until after the midterms. As if that is going to save their asses anyway. Pro-tip for the junta: the problem with draining the strategic petroleum reserve is that eventually, you run out of other people’s strategic petroleum reserves. All of this could end relatively quickly, the Dems could even preserve their Congressional majority and perhaps Biden’s replacement could keep the White House in ’24. All they have to do is the diametric opposite of this and every other policy they have instituted for the past 21 months and really since the beginning of time. And if the queen had balls she’d be the king, an expression that is destined to lose its meaning as the Left is actively doing exactly that to our children, but I digress.
It is evident that they are intentionally doing these things so as to complete the “fundamental transformation” of America into a nightmare socialist totalitarian state controlled by the Davos-Brussels-Beijing Axis. Muslim fecundity and mass global migration notwithstanding.
A commenter yesterday morning (sorry I should’ve saved the comment) said that much of this is the same playbook as the Soviets after 1917. I disagree. With the exception of Stalin’s intentional genocide of the Ukrainians, they actually believed that the dismantling of their economy and turning it over to central planners would lead to paradise and prosperity. I think they had actual “good intentions,” at least those who had been horribly oppressed and abused under the tsars. I do not believe that is the case of the Kalorama Klown Komintern. America especially since the end of the Second World War was the greatest economy and greatest engine of prosperity for everyone the world had ever seen.
But, in their eyes, you have to destroy paradise to create paradise.
The reason it’s important to know that I believe Obama is the real president is because Obama was my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983 — where we learned the plan to destroy America.
That plan was called “Cloward-Piven.”
Obama learned it well. It’s happening today. Look around. The powers that be have just given it a different name: “the Great Reset.”
But the goals are the same: destroy America; make us into a socialist nation; make everyone poor and dependent on government to survive; and make us into a one-party country (Democrat Party) with no opposition or dissent.
They are following the Cloward-Piven game plan to a T.
It’s death by a thousand paper cuts. Under eight years of Obama, they “boiled the frog slowly.” They attacked in slow motion, hoping you wouldn’t notice. Like cooking a frog, they set the temperature so low that the frog doesn’t realize he’s being boiled until he’s dead.
But now with Biden taking the heat, Obama is free to accelerate the process. Now Obama is throwing caution to the wind. He’s set the heat as high as it goes.
This is the final communist takeover of America.
The biggest scams in world history are all being carried out right now… all at once… right in front of your eyes. They’re hitting you from so many directions that you’re a combination of dizzy and punch-drunk.
