Nobody will really rise up against our growing tyranny in D.C. (and many states) unless or until the economy truly goes bad. And stays bad, worse than 2008, more like the Great Depression — only with Venezuelan hyperinflation.
This is not something to wish for. But the Uniparty coalition of career bureaucrats and career politicians wrecking our rights to consume energy, to make our own medical decisions, to own weapons, and to practice free speech are the very same ones wrecking our economy with little to no prospect of punishment by a rigged ballot box.
The thing to be most concerned about is when the bottom falls out of the middle class and the Bidenistas (or whomever succeeds them, Harris-istas, Newsom-istas) use that catastrophic development as an excuse to declare indefinite martial law in the name of “preserving democracy.”
It’s a lot more plausible and closer than you may think. After COVID, mass millions are primed for an American police state. The 2007-2008 economic meltdown, once underway, was shocking in its speed. You’re going to see civil strife, racial and socioeconomic antagonism and breakdown like never before experienced in America unless we reverse all policies of the Biden regime 180 degrees, and almost immediately. How is that going to happen?
And remember: the cultural and political Marxists running the show want that civil breakdown. They are not businesses in search of profit; they are monsters in search of power.

The Inflation Reduction Act is a ruse with an Orwellian name.
One day before federal agents raided Donald Trump’s home, Vice President Kamala Harris acting as tiebreaker for a deadlocked vote, helped the senate pass the $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Among the bill’s planned expenditures are billions earmarked for battling climate change, as well as increasing the staff of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). On Friday, August 12, the House signed on too. Despite the promises and propaganda being touted by Democrats and other supporters of the IRA, this sweeping piece of spending – massive in scale and scope – is simply the latest chess move in a sinister game where the radical transformation of the United States is taking precedence over solving a looming economic crisis.
The U.S. economy is at a dangerous tipping point. Forty-year high inflation is causing the average American household immense strain and small businesses to fold. Interest rate hikes, while necessary to counter out-of-control fiscal spending, are propelling us toward an even deeper recession. Rather than trying to tame inflation, those responsible for championing the IRA are using the same fiscally irresponsible approach that has contributed to our current economic woes. Deceptive legislation aimed at inflation and climate change will combat neither. Politicians are cheating us again and we are letting them. If you haven’t been paying attention, our freedoms cramp at the government’s style and those freedoms are under attack. At every turn, those in power circumvent or simply ignore the freedoms granted by the Constitution of the United States to impose what they perceive to be their superior intellect and virtue on the rest of us. This bill is another example of a shady backroom deal designed by people beholden to a donor class who think they know what you need and corporations who never had your best interests at heart.
To some degree, our public policy has always shaped our personal finances, but the malfeasance at work today is vastly different than anything we have previously encountered. The things that safeguard our way of life – our prosperity, our ability to provide an equitable standard of living for ourselves and our families – are being derailed by people who crave power and want to control the rest of us.
When does it stop? How do we fix the problems when the people who caused the problems are still making decisions for the rest of us? The answer is not as complicated as it may seem. Stop electing officials who don’t believe in the American way! Trump’s America First policy is a winning policy and putting our interests first doesn’t mean we can’t still be an integral part of the global community. America has always lead the way, but now we are lagging.
The New Left wants you to believe we live in a world that doesn’t require borders, police, guns, or a strong military. They want you to believe in a system that rewards everyone, especially those who don’t try to be productive. They want you to believe that violent criminals need mental health programs instead of prison or incarceration. They want you to believe that gender is a construct but at the same time expect you to shut up and “follow the science” as it relates to everything else. They want you to believe their policies work while asking you to ignore the facts and the statistics that say otherwise. They want you to own nothing – and still be happy!
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 importantnow 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.
Stand together and let the nation know that we will not comply. Today, President Joe Biden gave a chilling speech that made it abundantly clear- “this is not about freedom or personal choice.” It is only about what our government believes is best for us.
Sign this petition to show solidarity across the nation and the world that medical mandates have no place in a free society.
Congressman Thomas Massie, opposed by midwits everywhere, but cheered by lovers of freedom and science, has been a voice of reason over the past year and a half. Watch and listen as Tom Woods discusses with him, Biden vaccine mandates and what people can do.
The tweet pinned to the top of Congressman Massie’s Twitter account reads:
“Inserting needles and chemicals into people without their consent is violence. Depriving them of their basic human rights because they won’t give consent is also violence. Those who promote either should be ashamed.”
Make sure to follow him on Twitter @RepThomasMassie
ANALYSIS/OPINION: Congressman Massie really nails it on the 1969th episode of The Tom Woods Show. Watch and listen for an amazingly accurate description of Biden’s attempted dictatorship and know what your rights are. We must not give in and allow ourselves to be bullied or threatened into putting something into our bodies that we are opposed to. Whether you support the vaccine or not, this is a total violation of our Constitutional rights and our personal freedoms.
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.
