The political left has demonstrated a remarkable affinity for replacing what actually works with what will bring about ruin and chaos  This is true when it comes to government policies, fiscal policies, or culture.  Wherever leftists gain control, nations collapse because of their intolerance for what has brought about prosperity and stability.

For well over a century fossil fuels have powered the world, bringing about the Industrial Revolution.  The Industrial Revolution brought freedom and prosperity to every nation which protected individual rights and property rights.

Free and prosperous people are difficult for tyrants to rule. Poor and downtrodden are much more pliant   Fear is also one of the favorite tools used by tyrants to rule over those who do not wish to be controlled.  Creating an imaginary extended crises and hyping it endlessly in the media has proved most effective in turning the United States into a nation populated by compliant sheeple.  That strategy was used by Democrats most effectively over the past two years in the form of the Wuhan Flu pandemic.  It made the theft of the 2020 presidential election possible.

Globalist elites have longed for decades to implement a one world socialist government.  That would mean stripping the rights away from everyone individual.  A significant portion of the world’s population would object to this.  Climate change is the crisis used to create the overwhelming sense of fear needed.   If these elites could scare us enough to agree to ban fossil fuels in most nations, that would collapse the world economy, making everyone so miserable they would submit to being ruled by tyrant elites who would run a global socialist government.  That is being implemented through a plan called the Great Reset.  In the United States the plan to implement the Great Reset is called the Green New Deal.

This article documents the havoc caused by one nation’s attempt to implement a green new style plan. Sri Lanka Crisis Shows Consequences Of Elites’ Green Revolution (thefederalist.com)

Sri Lanka, a small island nation in South East Asia, is on the verge of total political and economic collapse after its president’s “green” policies have brought famine to the island’s 21 million people. 

From the 1970s to 2020, with the help of synthetic fertilizers, Sri Lanka had become self-sufficient in rice production. However, Sri Lanka’s government fell under the spell of the “green” revolution promoted by Western liberal elites. In a now-deleted article published by the World Economic Forum (WEF), then Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe vowed to make his country “rich by 2025,” partially by adopting WEF-sponsored “climate change” initiatives.  

Advised by the Rockefeller Foundation, Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa promised to transition the nation’s agriculture industry to organic farming within ten years. In April 2021, he banned “the importation and use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and order[ed] the country’s 2 million farmers to go organic,” according to Foreign Policy magazine. The Western green revolutionists were so pleased that they bestowed Sri Lanka with a near-perfect Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) score of 98, much higher than the United States’ score of 51.

But Sri Lanka’s adoption of green policies brought nothing but disasters. Its rice production has dropped more than 50 percent, while domestic rice prices have increased more than 80 percent. Once sufficient in rice production, the nation has been “forced to import $450 million worth of rice.” In the words of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Sri Lanka is experiencing “a government-created famine reminiscent of Mao.” 

And there is this article, Germany’s ‘Green’ Energy Disaster Is A Warning To The United States (thefederalist.com)

The move to “clean energy”—without nuclear—has accomplished three things:

1. It has prompted Germany, and the rest of the EU, to begin relying more heavily on Russian natural gas as it “transitioned.” Putin, who has begun demanding EU nations pay for their energy in roubles, is now able to undercut the European economy at will.

2. It has created the highest global electricity prices per household in the world. In 2019, German households were paying 34 cents per kilowatt-hour compared to 13 cents in the United States. The price of energy has doubled since 2000, when Germany first mandated decarbonization, an effort that forced energy companies to purchase long-term inefficient renewables at high, fabricated prices.

3. It has meant the burning of coal. Even before Russia began cutting off supply, Germany was more reliant on coal than the United States. This week, Germany’s Economy Minister Robert Habeck, who earlier this year rejected a European Union label of nuclear energy as “green,” announced that in an effort to avoid future gas shortages—because cars can’t run on wind—the government would incentivize the use of more coal-fired power plants.

Thanks to their version of the Green New Deal, conditions in the Netherlands are so bad mass protests are taking place, Media Ignore Dutch Farmer Protests To Protect Climate Fearmongering (thefederalist.com)

The government of the Netherlands seems to be willing to starve Europe to browbeat Dutch farmers about climate change, and American corporate media outlets are largely ignoring it.

The Netherlands is demanding its farmers drastically reduce their herds of livestock in order to eliminate 50 percent of the nation’s nitrogen pollution by 2030. That leaves just eight years for farmers whose livelihoods revolve around cultivating land and raising animals to figure out how they can keep supplying the continent with food.

Under the new “green” restrictions, many generational farmers say that they risk bankruptcy or being forced out of the industry altogether. Even the government has admitted that “The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business.” That’s why, for more than a month now, large numbers of these Dutch farmers have protested government policies forcing them to wreak havoc on the nation’s agricultural industry.

A disruption like this, to a nation that is the “largest exporter of meat in Europe and the second largest exporter of food overall after the United States,” will also likely exacerbate food shortages caused by the Ukraine-Russia war throughout the European Union and other parts of the world.

Joe Biden is hell bent on cramming the Green New Deal down the throats of the American people through executive order.   So far, the Biden regime has done tremendous harm to the American economy by closing one major pipeline and a large number of wells.  The economy would be ground to a halt if the Green New Deal is implemented?

I have a son who is discerning a vocation as a religious brother and in pondering it I found myself re-reading the book of Samuel.

At one point in the book of Samuel the people of Israel demand a king to rule over them and God tell him to grant this but before you do warn them what it will mean and as the Lord commanded Samuel tells them:

Samuel delivered the message of the LORD in full to those who were asking him for a king.

He told them: “The rights of the king who will rule you will be as follows: He will take your sons and assign them to his chariots and horses, and they will run before his chariot.

He will also appoint from among them his commanders of groups of a thousand and of a hundred soldiers. He will set them to do his plowing and his harvesting, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots.

He will use your daughters as ointment-makers, as cooks, and as bakers.

He will take the best of your fields, vineyards, and olive groves, and give them to his officials.

He will tithe your crops and your vineyards, and give the revenue to his eunuchs and his slaves.

He will take your male and female servants, as well as your best oxen and your asses, and use them to do his work.

He will tithe your flocks and you yourselves will become his slaves.

When this takes place, you will complain against the king whom you have chosen, but on that day the LORD will not answer you.”

1 Samuel 8:9-18

That instantly came to mind when I saw this:

The reason this reminds me of that passage from Samuel is that the results of a Biden Presidency was not only predictable but were directly predicted by Donald Trump. One example:

This is of course just one example. He predicted the crash of 401K’s gas prices, failures abroad, etc etc etc but this is just one post

This is why btw the left and the media and big tech are so big on censoring content, the truth of these failures are so self evident that even the NeverTrumptm Principled ConservativeTm are acknowledging them.

That being said you can be sure of three things:

  1. Every single one of those folks would not trade their vote for Biden for a Trump vote in 2020
  2. In a 2024 rematch between Trump and Biden they will remain all in on Biden
  3. If the GOP nominates someone other than Donald Trump whoever it is whether it be Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Kristi Noem or even a Prune Danish they will decide that said person or pastry is even worse than Donald Trump

In fact the media’s acknowledgement of these failures is only in the hopes of replacing the no longer useful idiot in the White House with a useful one.

But be aware that all of these failures and all of these pains are a direct result of the willingness confront the reality of a stolen election and like the Democrat cities that are unwilling to confront the realities of gangs and the Israelites who were unwilling to heed the warning of Samuel we shall continue to pay the price.
