    Government Extravagance and Mass Democracy: The federal government spent $6.8 trillion in fiscal year 2021. The excess of spending over tax revenue created a $2.8 trillion deficit in that year. The Biden Administration proposes to spend additional trillions and to raise taxes substantially. The Congressional Budget Office projects that deficits will total $15.1 trillion between FY2021 and 2031, and that federal debt held by the public will rise from 100 percent of Gross Domestic Product ($22.3 trillion) today to 106 percent of GDP ($35.8 trillion) by 2031, which would surpass the record level of federal debt set during World War II. The CBO also projects higher inflation (which is already occurring) and rising interest rates, which will adversely affect the budgets and savings of all Americans.

    Foreign Policy and National Defense: The United States faces serious challenges to its national interests from potentially hostile nations such as China, Russia, Iran and North Korea. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is rapidly modernizing its capabilities. China’s recent launch of a long-range maneuverable hypersonic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead is a potential game changer. China is expanding its militarization of the South China Sea and poses a threat to Taiwan and possibly to other east Asian nations. Its “Belt and Road” initiative seeks to make China the dominant economic power in Eurasia. To pay insufficient attention to the Chinese threat is to repeat the mistake of Britain and its allies in the 1930s in underestimating the German menace.

    The Afghanistan Debacle: When the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States occurred, it was clear that Afghanistan had harbored and supported the Taliban and al-Qaeda, so our military invaded Afghanistan and successfully disabled those terrorist entities in that country. The George W. Bush Administration decided to keep U.S. forces in Afghanistan and to encourage the formation of a modern, democratic government in the country. This process became known as “nation building,” which we also tried (with equal lack of success) in Iraq. Subsequent administrations continued America’s involvement in Afghanistan.

    Education: American education continues to deteriorate. The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 forced the closure of many public schools, and children had to learn online or through home instruction. As a consequence, parents discovered, to their dismay, what their kids were actually being taught in the public schools. It was obvious that the quality of the teaching did not match what the parents expected.

    Social Breakdown: Following the killing of a black man by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May 2020, rioting, looting and outbreaks of mob violence occurred in cities all across the country. The police officer was tried, convicted, and sent to prison, but the appropriate use of legal process did not stop the rioters, led by Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other radical organizations who were supported by America’s leftist media and academic elites. Political leaders in American cities did little or nothing to stop the violence. We know from history what happens when mobs in the street begin to control what happens in the cities. In the United States, the FBI reported that in 2020 murders rose by 29.4 percent compared to the previous year and the overall violent crime rate was up by five percent.

    American Culture: During the first two-thirds of the 20th century, the United States still had what could be described as a common culture. While modernism had certainly produced a certain amount of disruption in art, manners, and taste, there was a general acceptance of traditional moral and religious values, including personal responsibility, standards of behavior, and respect for law and order—even during the Great Depression. In the 1960s, these values began to deteriorate. Academic standards were lowered. A culture of rock music and drugs contributed to a mindless ethos of noise and vulgarity. Now, in the early decades of the 21st century, the “post-modern” culture reflects a culture that is rootless, devoid of spiritual values, disconnected from the past, infatuated with technology and driven by global markets with no traditional moorings or permanent ideals. In a secularized culture, God is forgotten and mammon reigns.

    The Media: The news media have always been a vital part of American culture. Traditionally, American newspapers and other media outlets have reflected a wide variety of opinions. Today’s dominant “mainstream media” (including the New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, National Public Radio and their acolytes) have become politicized followers of the leftist agenda.

    Immigration: Since its founding, the United States has benefited from a steady and relatively manageable influx of productive and motivated immigrants, mostly from European countries. Until the 1960s, the flow of immigrants was limited by various quotas and restrictions. Under the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, however, which permitted “chain migration” of family members, there was a surge of immigration, especially from Mexico and Central America and more recently from Africa and Asia. Much of this immigration in recent decades has been illegal, and many of the migrants are lacking in basic skills and are less likely to assimilate than previous immigrants.

    The Leadership Crisis: To overcome crises like those described above requires competent leadership. But such leadership is in short supply in America today. The leadership of Joe Biden since his inauguration in January 2021 has been an abject failure. His management of the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a disaster.

    Why has the world been turned on its head these last few years?  Why does it seem as if everything true is labeled false and everything false is labeled true?  Why is it that, even in the absence of all-out global war, everything feels chaotic and uncertain these days?  Why is it that at the height of global prosperity and peace, the world is going mad?

    What if I were to tell you that what we are experiencing has nothing to do with events currently unfolding in the present and everything to do with a future event that sits just over the horizon?  What if I told you that everything the titans of government, finance, and technology do today is in preparation for something they are desperate to prevent tomorrow?  What if I told you that this looming disaster for those who hold power now would one day be known as "The Global Revolt of the Peasants"? Would all the craziness around us make a little more sense if you knew that the only thing our "leaders" actually fear is we?

    Even the most free and dynamic social systems degrade over time as the people who govern those systems distort them in pursuit of greater personal wealth and power.  Corrupted systems eventually lead to breakdown and collapse.  As collapse nears, social systems become so vulnerable to unsanctioned actions and ideas that they close themselves off.  Freedom is replaced with tyranny.  This is by design.

    In present-day America, the federal government has decided that working-class Americans are a danger to the security of the United States. What can you do to protect yourself? 

    The situation traditional America faces is no secret. The persecution of dissent, religious beliefs, and traditional values is now in the open for all to see. The magnitude of the change in American culture is shocking—not from a sense of surprise as much as from the rapidity and deliberateness of it. We are overwhelmed by the radical changes in our present society. Many are having difficulty processing the totality of it.

    When the U.S. government decides you are a threat, they can bring frightening powers against you in order to “disrupt” what they view as your threatening activity. The tactics they employ are designed to circumvent your due process rights while simultaneously intimidating, coercing, and, in some cases, purposely ruining your life—a method colloquially described as “process as punishment.”

    The FBI and Department of Homeland Security use a sort of checklist to build their cases with informants. This checklist is commonly referred to as Indicators of Mobilization to Violence, or IMV. The IMV is composed of a list of both common and less-common human activities. They range from attending church, going camping, owning firearms, to traveling abroad, having relatives associated with “extremist” activity, or writing political manifestos, á la the Unabomber.

    In 1900, the USA had the largest economy in the world; its technical and production capabilities were unrivaled.  The corporate structure had been defined in the previous few decades, and each company knew where their lines in the market were delineated.  Growth was reasonable but expansion was limited by the size of our market. The only bubble was a war against Muslims in far-off Asia.

    We provided the know-how to our alleged greatest enemy.   The academics and other simpletons jumped aboard the socialist nirvana train to nowhere and spent 75 years lying cheating and stealing to advance an aborted idea.  Big business, of course, knew better and laughed at the leftist dogma proclaiming Russia was leaving us behind with a superior system.  The profits of course, continued to flow. The Russian Communist empire imploded due to its inefficiency caused by political and cultural stagnation.

    Today we have China in the identical position of dependence on our technologies. Anthony Sutton predicted this predicament thirty years ago. We created our new rival by greed and lack of foresight.  The lure of a billion customers is incredibly strong, but ultimately self-defeating as offshoring jobs has destroyed our manufacturing base.  This problem started with simple telephone systems and now includes all electronics and rocket technology. Every part of our government has been infiltrated by the Chinese.  The academics have been purchased as well, using the Confucius Institute for infiltration of our colleges.

    “In the government of this commonwealth, the legislative department shall never exercise the executive and judicial powers, or either of them; the executive shall never exercise the legislative and judicial powers, or either of them; the judicial shall never exercise the legislative and executive powers, or either of them; to the end it may be a government of laws, and not of men.”

    The phrase “government of laws and not of men” conveys that those who wield the reins of power have an obligation to conform their conduct to the existing practices, laws and Constitutional provisions.  While it is true that existing legal and constitutional barriers were erected by men and women, those enactments were done pursuant to the authorizations of the people or their duly-elected representatives, so that by following the rules laid down, we are maintaining the sovereignty of the American people themselves.

    It is now increasingly clear that the explosion in Nashville was not caused by an RV bomb, nor a conventional missile but rather a “Directed Energy Weapon.” This topic is covered in more detail in the December 28th Situation Update.
