The Constitution vs. the Oligarchs

To “save the lives” of Americans, Uncle Joe Biden’s CCCP junta (Covid-CriticalRaceTheory-Climate Party) mandated that all of us with whom they have lost patience must do what we are told. Now.

Federal Court: No.

To “save the planet,” the CCCP cancelled new exploitation of oil resources on federal lands. Because who cares about the economy, jobs, prosperity, families, the future … or the law … when in conflict with the opinion of a guy whose only domestic job is to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” at which he is epically failing (immigration, anyone?).

Federal Court: No.

And not a drop for us.

As oil prices skyrocket in tune with the demands of Democrats, it’s good to know that America began storing oil in a Strategic Petroleum Reserve in the 1970s when the OPEC cartel stopped shipping the stuff to us. And now that Uncle Joe has terminated new production and has gone hat-in-hand to the cartel begging them for more (OPEC: “No”) at least we’ll have the SPR to help offset the economic hit. Well, we would have if the CCCP weren’t selling off our strategic oil reserves to Asia.

The Davos elite, led by Klaus Schwab, would have us all believe that freezing to death this winter in the absence of real energy (for which wind and solar are only imaginary substitutes) will be remembered in the coming 2-3-5-degree increase they forecast as the good old days.

In fact, quite a few real scientists are processing actual data (not long-ridiculed “Hockey stick” that started this entire hoax, or ever-re-manipulated global temperature readings). What are these scientists seeing?

Earth is also currently experiencing a surprisingly long period with very low sunspot activity. That is associated with the earth's history with even lower, colder temperatures. The pattern was seen during a period known as the Dalton Minimum from 1790 to 1830, which saw temperature readings decline by two degrees in a 20-year period.

The Maunder Minimum, 1645–1715, also preceded by fewer sunspots (and the lengthening solar cycles we may be seeing now), was both colder and longer. If you think being a bit warmer with more food and fewer deaths from extreme weather is a problem, try growing food and living beneath a mile of ice… Snowball earth will be far worse than temperate earth.

Come to think about it, if the interpretation by scientists of the real data is accurate (and history suggests that it is), a colder-than-average winter may, indeed, be the good old days. If we are approaching another mini-ice age only a century or two since exiting the last, “freezing” may be remembered as “a balmy day.” In the 18th and 19th centuries, Londoners were ice skating the Thames and Hans Christian Anderson was writing about Silver Skates on the Zuiderzee. And who's to say the next Ice Age will be "mini"?

O where O where have the sunspots gone?

Consider: food plants (and humans) thrive in warmer temperatures and higher CO2 concentrations, which is why those searching outer space for habitable planets are looking for warmer ones. But Bill Gates, the individual owning the largest amount of farmland in America (and who is polluting enormously while buying more, globally) wants lower temperatures and lower CO2 concentrations. Let us ask Mr. Gates about his plans to own all the farmland yet be unable to feed the global population as the earth cools, shall we?

It is important to remember that the same Davos oligarchs who gamed the pandemic in advance, demand the CCP Virus “vaccine” mandate and passports, and insist we reduce/eliminate energy usage and thereby our standard of living are not in the least negatively affected by the policies they apply -- not to themselves but only to us.

It also is important to remember that the intent of this crowd is to do away with self-rule globally and to place the planet’s population under their dictatorship. This is why their policies on Covid, Climate, CRT are destroying the middle class. They are not stupid and these are not “mistakes” resulting in “failure.” This is all part and parcel of their Great Reset.

This is not a game. With their enlistment of global media, education, healthcare, bioweapons labs (what could one call “gain of function” other than a "bioweapon"?), supply chains and manufacturing, it’s a war. But only one side is fighting.

America has the advantage of a written Constitution limiting the power and reach of its federal government. Occasionally a federal court will grasp that it means what it says, as in the two examples with which this column began. Other Western nations lack this – but are more competent at filling the streets with people, trucks and tractors in protest. We are growing tired of these parasites we feed, clothe, house, enrich, and transport deciding and acting against us, our children and our future.

In Schwab we don't trust.

The rule of law will survive – or Davos and the CCCP will destroy it. There are millions of us on the side of law. Against a few dozen oligarchs polluting the planet “to save it.” If the nascent dictators don’t pull-back and adhere to law and the traditions of Western Civilization, sooner or later a spark will ignite a conflagration.

When “disobedience” starts, it will remain civil only for so long. BLM, Antifa and the oligarchs taught that civil disobedience is punishable; but burning down cities is not. Somewhere in Switzerland, the international oligarchs are weighing their next moves.

The Attack on Energy is an Attack on You

Two goals exist in the attack on energy by the Left. By focusing on their secondary goal (the environment), Democrats accelerate toward their primary goal: destroying the global middle class. This is the demand of the Great Reset and the politicians they own in the western democracies.

A year ago we thought we were free. Today we find our energy industry under attack, ourselves unconstitutionally locked-down in urban complexes, growing increasingly distrustful of others due to useless masks and media lies, with food and housing so expensive that families are not formed, and children becoming a thing of the past.

Oh – and travelling not at all – no planes, and electric cars with an overnight stay at a hotel while “fueling” a car rather than the current ten minutes for the next 400 miles of seeing what once was a free country.

They hate your children too.

Killing energy kills the middle class, the foundation of global democracies that arose through and via the Industrial Revolution, the cornerstone of which was using energy resources (coal, oil, water) more productively than ever before.

Without a middle class, the only possible society remaining is a post-modern serfdom, living and working where, how, at what and for a labor price our betters command. The advance of Big Tech is being encouraged no longer to better our lives, but to better surveil us and to increase the homogenizing of work, speech, thought and culture as demanded by a literal handful of unelected, unaccountable billionaires who think because they’re rich they must be smart (they’re not), and that what they think is “right."

This is the story of tyrants throughout history. And, like all tyrants, these, too, are enemies of people, families, nations, cultures and progress.

As we move farther into the Information Age, what happens to those not able or willing to move into a career that entails staring at a screen all day? What happens when the work of anyone (other than a parasitical politician or indolent bureaucrat) can be offshored to anyone, anywhere on the planet?

Labor needs traditionally have been a community or a national question. The Resetters reject these needs and desires, so intent are they upon forcing us to do their bidding.

This is not a jeremiad against technical progress or a rejection of living standards that unquestionably have advanced due to the digital revolution. It is a demand that those who have most profited from these advances are not allowed, undemocratically, to use their profits to destroy the middle class.

As a culture progresses in resource productivity (food, water, energy, labor) this increased productivity allows that society to create a cohort that pursues specialization, education, travel, art, literature and leisure – the things that make life more than a short, brutal, hungry trudge from cradle to grave. The more productively a society can use resources, the more the living standards of that society increase across all socioeconomic classes.

No petite bourgeoisie wanted here, buddy.

The entire world benefits from the Western middle classes: the wealthy who invest in and benefit from their education, inventions and work, the leisure industries in which they participate, and the benefits a now-wealthier society can distribute to the less-well-off.

But that need for a middle class remains until the need for labor itself is vanquished, as long as we require food, water, shelter, clothing and energy, i.e., as long as people exist. The need for those with skills lacked by the rest of us, indeed, increases: fewer of us every generation can run a water main, repair an electrical problem in our home, or harvest our own food. If advancing technology means one worker can do what ten once did, the need for that one is more, not less, critical. If one of ten no longer can work, the other nine can supply the labor. If one of one no longer can work, who is going to repair your oven?

Trade encouraged by a world shrinking due to industrialized transportation productivity has encouraged lower-skill occupations to migrate to toward what we call the “First World.” This has provided their populations with jobs through which they could advance their standards of education and living, bettering humanity as a whole. As these populations advanced, lower-skill work travelled to less-advanced nations. Wholesale removal of work from Western middle classes for reasons of labor costs alone, however, causes nothing but destruction.

Paying workers in other countries less money to do jobs that have been relocated from the First World specifically to reduce labor costs, cannot help but reduce living standards of the First World. This decelerates all progress globally, including environmental progress and the support of benefits for the poor.

It is a simple fact that a First World country must pay First World wages… or it can’t be a First World country.

Marching for "migrants' rights" in Paris.

The plain fact is this: Western “leaders” no longer value the living standards of their populations. This is past-evident in the intentional failure of education and the offshoring of jobs over the past two generations. Reduced living standards are their goal.

At some point – the point we've likely already reached – either we retain manufacturing and energy production jobs rather than shipping them to less-advanced countries at a lower price, or those who can’t “learn to code” become a detriment to society in the eyes of the “leaders” of that society. Then what?

By killing the Keystone XL pipeline and attacking similar pipelines, as well as protesting against LNG port facilities, the useful idiots of the left are placated in the name of the non-existent global-warming hypothesized by many but supported by nothing.

But the leadership wielding the knives slitting the throats of the middle class couldn’t care less about warming or the environment. They know warming isn’t real; they aren’t stupid. They can read charts and data. Their lack of care for the environment is proven by imposing strict environmental regulations on energy production, while ignoring countries with zero environmental regulations, such as Russia or Nigeria. They also know pretending to care about the environment is a  useful tool to use in the destruction of dissent from their rule.

The entire drive to reduce energy consumption (not theirs, of course), to embrace socialism and Progressivism and the tyrannical Great Reset, is fostered by those who know the terrible harm it will cause to the people of the world… and simply do not care.
