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.

MEDICAL MANDATES HAVE NO PLACE IN A FREE SOCIETY

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 (R)KY: Resist The Biden Mandates

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.

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.

Mass Civil Disobedience: Increasingly, the Only Answer

by Dr Michael Hurd

August 23,2021

ANALYSIS/OPINION: If it hasn’t become abundantly clear to you what a mess we are in, then it probably never will, and you should stop reading right now. However, if you see what is happening and want to stop it, here is what we suggest…. It doesn’t involve violence, or bloodshed, it simply suggests that you do not comply. Do not comply with things that make no sense. Do not comply with rules that hurt you or make you uncomfortable. Do not comply with nonsense just because you don’t want to be bothered and you want to be left alone.

In this article written by our friend Dr. Michael Hurd, he explains how those in power are using our compliance to crush us and take away our freedoms. Please take a moment to read and take (or do not) take action! Once our freedoms are gone we will NEVER be able to get them back.

READ: Without mass civil disobedience, we will not make it out of this mess.

As Senator Rand Paul said recently, “They can’t arrest us all.” They can’t. If enough people stop complying with unconstitutional mandates and directives, it will send the government into chaos. It’s what they fear most: losing control. Control and power are all the people in power care about. Yes, they care about money, too. But without power, they don’t get any money. People in politics and government don’t make their money through voluntary persuasion, as legitimate businesses (small and large) do. Nancy Pelosi didn’t become a billionaire through creating a product or service that millions wish to buy. She became a billionaire through coercion, deceit and manipulation — decades of it, assisted by a dishonest, fawning media as well as many ignorant voters. Ditto for Joe Biden, and all the other politicians who became millionaires and billionaires.

Civil disobedience is the Kyrptonite of politicians. When they see us wearing masks, staying inside, getting vaccinated because they say so — regardless of our concerns, or the concerns of our doctors, including our mental health professionals — then they are happy. They know that if they can get the vast majority to do all these things, they can probably get the vast majority to do anything. This makes them happy; and their happiness is their sickness. They know if the vast majority do their bidding — some of them resentfully — then they can get the vast majority to intimidate and threaten those who will not (yet) comply. Everything now unfolding with vaccinations and vaccination passports demonstrates the polar opposite of civil disobedience — and everything is now unfolding precisely as evil, powerful people desire it.

It’s not about masks or a mostly survivable virus. It’s not about health or safety. It’s about the “safety” of the powerful to maintain/expand their control and, where relevant, their money flow. That’s all it is, and all it ever will be. It’s human nature at its absolute worse. It’s human nature just a couple of rungs above the actions of a Nazi Germany. We’re almost there. I believe today’s power mongers have the potential to be much worse than Hitler, inconceivable as that is. Just watch. People in power can go wherever they want with the unqualified and unconditional support of the vast majority of the people behind them. Unthinking or fearful people are all they need.

So far, they have ZERO losses in their column. Nothing, absolutely nothing, stands in their way. Other than mass civil disobedience, which has yet to happen.

What do we have to do? In mass numbers, we have to stop complying with the idiotic, the insane, the unsustainable and the brazenly, openly unconstitutional. Stop complying. It’s as simple as that. If you’re afraid of being put in jail, just remember that they can’t put all of us in jail. Break down the system. Make it all come to a screeching halt — not through fire and violence; but through simply refusing to participate in it, under these conditions.

If you’re too afraid to take those steps, now or ever, then you’re going to have to accept the consequences. Those consequences are unfolding very rapidly, almost daily, right before our eyes. Those consequences will become much worse than anything you ever feared about disobedience. And just think: You can tell your children and grandchildren that YOU are the generation who lost our freedom, when they ask, “What’s all the ‘freedom’ I hear about prior to 2020?”

Civil disobedience will not be enough. There is no one single thing that will fix this mess. In many respects, it’s too late. It’s too late to avoid a disaster because, if we’re honest about it, the disaster is unfolding. Joe Biden is not the cause of a disaster; he’s the result and consequence of a disaster that already happened, and that’s getting worse by the day. Kamala Harris and all that’s to follow will be even worse.

But we can minimize the impact and at least try to reverse course. We can experience, in authentic solidarity with fellow freedom-loving citizens (millions of them), the satisfaction that emerges from simply not complying, and from doing so in numbers of tens of millions.

You can make the tyrants crazy. They’re already evil, and that will never change. But let’s make them suffer. Let’s torture them, by refusing to comply.

You’re not helpless, so long as you remember that.

Note: I still have a Facebook account (Michael Hurd, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware), but Facebook has suspended my account until August 27. They are also threatening to terminate it — for being rational. If you value my posts, please sign up for the Dr. Hurd twice monthly digest on this site, and you’ll be tuned in forever. Tell your friends too, including on Facebook and other social media.

We Are Living In The Twilight Zone

I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

But today I woke up and I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so filled with hate that they will agree with opinions that if they were in their right minds they would never express as their own.

It’s absolutely unbelievable. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone…..then I saw this and I think that it’s pretty close to describing how I feel.

I’m not starting a fight, but it is something to think about. This may open up a ton of outraged comments by some. Many who will argue how “wrong” this post is. My suggestion, save your time and effort! You’re not changing the reality of what we are living by trying to somehow justify this insanity.

Nevertheless, I couldn’t resist because we are becoming the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

• If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis, Covid and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.

We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right, where darkness is light and light is now darkness.

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.

The choice is yours to make. What will it be?

Time is short, make your choice wisely!

The COVID-19 Scam and How We’re Paying For It | Rogue Economics

by Bill Bonner

July 21, 2021

OPINION/ANALYSIS: Great article from Rogue Economics. In this article, the author visits with a French hotel-owner who journals the negative impact of COVID-19 restrictions and regulations on business owners. Meanwhile in America, the Federal Reserve is screwing us by rescuing dying businesses and avoiding the inevitable.

It’s not a matter of “if but a matter of when” this party will end. The disastrous consequences we will suffer from these lockdowns and terrible policy concerning this virus will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

In addition, people do not realize that WE are the ones paying the price for this lunacy and poor decision- making by lawmakers!

Now they are trying to force even more restrictions on us. We must say NO. We cannot allow this to get worse than it already is. #stopthemadness #justsayno #standupforyourights
