America in Decline: Will Culture Wars, Foreign Dependency, and Failed Policies Alter the Fate of the World’s Great Superpower?

An Original KTJ Nation Article | March 24, 2022

The notion that America may be in the stages of decline is not a new idea.  Several intellectuals have argued that our decline began shortly after the end of World War II, although most agree the most significant shift occurred sometime in the early seventies when the rise of academic Marxism, extremist political economies, and critical cultural studies began tearing at the fabric of American ideals. In 2016, when Donald Trump selected “Make America Great Again” as his campaign mantra, the implication became clear to generations of Americans who had not been privy to the subject of American decline as academic discourse. America was no longer great, at least not as great as it had once been, and measures would need to be taken to restore our economic stability, national security, and manufacturing and energy independence.  And if Trump’s stunning presidential win showed us anything it’s that even when political roadblocks are overcome and new ideas are installed, implementing policy changes in a now corrupt and broken system not controlled by the people for the people but by career politicians, special interest groups, bureaucrats, media companies, and the super-rich, was going to be an uphill battle.

How did we get here? And is Donald Trump’s dream to “Make America Great Again” even fully possible in a country that elected a man like Joe Biden to commandeer our future and our interests and the interests of our children? When younger and younger generations of Americans are being taught to believe the American experiment has outlived its usefulness and it’s time for a radical reboot, how can we expect to reverse course if we can’t convince our own citizens that what we had and have is still the most viable path forward? These are polarizing questions and there are no simple answers, but what has become more and more clear is that neither Republicans nor Democrats seem 100% capable of running the show.

While thousands die and war rages in Ukraine, and China seriously contemplates a similar invasion of Taiwan, and our allies ponder their geopolitical futures as well as the liberty and safety of their citizens, we continue to fight amongst ourselves. It has been 156 years since the Civil War ended and nearly 70 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement, yet we continue to promote this idea that America has not evolved at all. This idea of an active and pervasive inherent racism or prejudice, once solely reserved for African Americans, is now everywhere. The belief is expanding to include perceived marginalized people of all kinds despite the historic successes achieved for equality under the law not only for African Americans, but for women, gays, and trans people too.

We are not a perfect country, but this strife and conflict is an insidious distraction perpetrated by the internal and external enemies of American democracy. It’s making us weaker as a nation, less safe, and less smart. While our kids are Keeping up with the Kardashians and we bicker about race, gender identity, and critical race theory, a truly dangerous threat is growing all around us. Today, it’s more money at the gas pump or a few innocuous supply chain issues. A year from now, it’s food shortages and life-saving medications that are not available.  If you think sketchy leaders and failed leadership policies don’t have the ability to cripple our economy or even annihilate life as we know it, think again. We are at a precipice. How we choose to govern ourselves and what we decide is truly important now may very well seal our fate as a nation. And if God forbid, we fail, what may eventually unite us is despondency—the despondency we feel when we realize we don’t recognize and may not be able to survive the system they put in play while we weren’t paying attention.

Watch Tucker Carlson Explain Why Biden And This Administration Failed Our Country

ANALYSIS/OPINION: This is almost unbelievable. Two decades of lies have now begun unraveling, along with the lives of the Biden administration. They are prioritizing everyone except Americans that are trapped in Afghanistan. It is actually being called “Benghazi on steroids.”

As of today, 8/29/2021, the United States has less than 2 days to get the thousands and thousands of innocent American citizens out of Afghanistan – all because of Biden’s deal with the Taliban.

Americans are dying and will continue to die, and all their blood is on this administration’s hands. It is quite disturbing to learn that the United States is now considered feckless, weak, and incompetent.  This country has always been strong, powerful, respected, and a beacon of hope.  But Biden has given away American credibility and endurance. We are no longer respected. He gave it all away .

You will be disgusted. The Democrats have orchestrated this entire disaster – from The Afghanistan humiliation to the disaster on our southern border – to kill and distract as many people possible to hide their decades of crimes.

WARNING: The guests appearing on the show in this video are extremely upset, angry, and highly emotional.

Tell Congress NO on HR1!

Congress is about to vote itself a second salary while Americans suffer. While the American people are suffering, Members of Congress, led by Schumer and Pelosi, are pushing a new bill called HR1, which will let elected representatives draw a SECOND SALARY worth as much as $600,000 per year. This in addition to their current salary. Also, this bill allows swamp politicians to use taxpayer money to get elected, takes over our elections, floods the system with fraudulent mail in ballots, and bans voter identification so anyone can vote in anyone else’s name. Even yours! This bill is coming down for a vote in less than one week. Meanwhile, they are planning to give America’s COVID-19 victims – including millions who are out of work and have NO income – just $1,400. That’s 400 TIMES LESS than the money Congress is about to give itself! It is urgent that key lawmakers hear from you NOW and all of us combined as we work to stop this in its track. Please click this link and tell Congress: Help America, Not Yourself! Please share this link and email with every single person you know and ask them to do the same to help us spread the word and stop this insanity.

CLICK HERE TO TELL CONGRESS NO!!

We Could Not Have Said this Better Ourselves…

These are the words of Larry Beane, a Lutheran pastor you’ve probably never heard of.

But when you’re right, you’re right. Here is what this wise man said. And we agree with him 100%

“I want to commend the Left. They are much better at government than the Right. The Left understands that governance is ruthlessness. They understand that you succeed by social and political tyranny, by quashing free speech, by crushing dissent with mob rule and fear, by control of information, by dominating all of the institutions of society, by seizing the reins of power and using it not to defend the liberties of the people, but to compound even more power, like pyramiding interest upon interest to build a fortune out of thin air.

The Left has fostered cancel culture, and has rolled back all standards of law and order and decency to where those who disagree will be removed. It is a fact of life. And fear of being unpersoned and unable to provide for one’s family is the ultimate means of totalitarian control.

Whether this is done by hard tyranny with boxcars and camps, or soft tyranny with social credit control, it doesn’t matter. The goal is control, total and unquestionable, unchallengeable control.

The Left understands that the news and history are not things to report, but things to control and use for the sake of control of people. They understand the iron fist and the velvet glove. They understand how to remake education into propaganda — for control. They also understand that the real power is not the doddering demented figurehead…but rather the power is in the Deep State, the Swamp, the murky underbelly where deals and threats are made. For that is where the behind the scenes control resides and multiplies.

And while most Americans are either too naive, stupid, or distracted — or afraid — to fight back, while they are easily bought off with promises of free stuff and enforced equality (promises made by every despotic regime in history), and while useful idiots believe fairy tales by CIA operatives on “news channels” pushing silly conspiracy theories about an “insurrection” and a “coup attempt” (all the while footage from 2016 Inauguration Day violence and actual 2020 insurrections are available for all to see), the slack-jawed subordinates follow along like zombie lemmings empowering the very people who will enslave them.”
