Our Inflationary Future Unfolds in Zimbabwe

The role model for what liberals are fundamentally transforming America into is the Rainbow Utopia, South Africa. The template for South Africa is the hellhole that was known as Rhodesian, Breadbasket of Africa, before it was purged of the evils of colonialism. If we want to know where liberal economic policy is taking us, we can skip ahead of collapsing South Africa and jump straight to Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe, the country that brought the world the one-hundred-trillion-dollar bill, has reached a new stage of monetary dysfunction. Because of a lack of small change, businesses have started printing their own “money”—scraps of paper, sometimes handwritten, that customers can use to pay for future purchases. Others are handing out change in-kind, making customers whole with juice boxes, pens or slices of cheese. …

It started in the early 2000s, when the government of then-President Robert Mugabe printed ever more money in an attempt to compensate for a collapse in agricultural production that followed a controversial land-redistribution effort.

Soon people will read, “It started in the early 2020s, when irresponsible fools printed ever more money to hand out for free because Covid and to subsidize idiotic electric vehicles…”

Britons Pay to Make African Children Eat Bugs

The global elite want to make us eat bugs, whether in the form of mealworms, crickets, larvae, cockroach milk, or maggot butter. Problem is, they have not yet destroyed the economy, so they don’t have enough leverage to force the issue. Africa is another matter:

The British government is funding projects pushing Africans to farm and consume insects, including school-age children, in randomized trials, to assess their effects.

If all goes well, Brits will go from being forced to pay for it to eating creepy-crawlies themselves.

The United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) – a subsidiary of the country’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy – is responsible for backing the projects taking place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zimbabwe.

With a roughly $320,000 grant from the aid office, researchers in Zimbabwe will be experimenting with using mopane worms in porridge served to children in schools.

For that kind of money, you could get them started raising crops. Then they could feed themselves. But that would make it be too warm outside, according to moonbat doctrine.

Intones academic entomologist Dr Sarah Beynon, founder of the Bug Farm in Pembrokeshire,

“With a population that has an appetite set to far exceed the planetary limits, and with current agriculture decimating biodiversity and changing the climate, we have no option but to change how we produce and consume food … and our views on the topic too.”

Changing our views to comply with their ideology is the first task of the ruling class.

Zimbabwe was known as the Breadbasket of Africa, back when it was also known as Rhodesia. Then came moonbattery, which replaced white farmers with hyperinflation and starvation in the name of leftist politics.

The Caucasian colonizers are back. Unfortunately, this time they are there not to extend civilization but to spread more moonbattery.

USA Less Free Than 1 Year Ago per Fraser Institute

As Big Government grows, economic freedom continues to decline:

Each year, the Fraser Institute releases a report entitled “Economic Freedom of the World,” a ranking of countries around the world by economic freedom. … The ranking is calculated using numerous factors, including size of government, respect for property rights, freedom to trade, monetary policy, and regulation.

“Economic freedom is about people being free to mold and shape their own lives,” in the words of James Gwartney, a coauthor of the report.

The United States slots in at 7th place, down one spot from last year. But the U.S.’s score dropped more significantly, down from 8.25 to 7.97 on the index’s 10-point scale. The reason why America lost only one spot in the rankings is because economic freedom around the world fell in 2020…

It would be nice to think that the Land of the Free would stand against this alarming trend. But the USA’s score is the lowest in 4 decades.

Atop the list are Singapore and Hong Kong, where freedom will soon be snuffed out by the ChiComs. Toward the bottom, we find Zimbabwe and Venezuela, two countries that appear to serve as models for Democrats.

Give Biden et al. a few more years and creeping socialism will push America out of the top 10.

Biden Appointee Praises ChiCom Tyranny

The Biden Regime has pursued inflationary policy so aggressively that you might think Biden’s handlers are using Venezuela or Zimbabwe as a role model. Actually, the template for Democrats as they fundamentally transform America is based more on the totalitarian nightmare Mao Zedong established in China. They come close to admitting it:

Biden tapped Dominic Ng, the chairman of East West Bank, to represent the United States on the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Advisory Council (ABAC), comprised of a group of business leaders that advises governments on issues in the region.

While speaking at the Future of Asia Conference in 2018, Ng appeared to praise the Chinese Communist Party’s authoritarian economic system, remarking “there is nothing better than that.” Ng made the admission while answering a question about the future of China’s economy and a potential crash. …

The Chinese Communist Party, explained Ng, can “control the media to not get out of control” and stop them from “spreading rumors that would hurt the economy”…

We now have a Ministry of Truth for that sort of thing.

Ng’s comments follow his unearthed ties to a bevy of Chinese Communist Party-linked foreign influence groups including the Committee of 100 and the China United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), which function as part of China’s United Front Work Department (UFWD).

According to our own State Department, UFWD advances ChiCom interests by infiltrating our media, universities, and government.

Personnel is policy. That’s why it is so alarming that Biden’s handlers keep appointing communists and other malevolent kooks.

The communist Chinese government to which his appointees and even Biden himself have ties is the most malevolent in all of human history, based on the number of its own people it has killed. Mao’s genocidal regime was never overthrown, but evolved into today’s China, where the same utter contempt for the liberty and very lives of the Chinese people continues to be on open display, with people locked in their apartments to starve lest they spread Covid.

Shopping in South Africa

Let’s check in on the rainbow utopia, where the globalist Left got what it wanted. Here’s how grocery shopping is done:

What happens when people start starving because looting delivery trucks and killing white farmers leave the grocery stores empty? Europe and North America send free food, of course.

It’s when liberals have turned the entire West into South Africa en route to Zimbabwe that we really have a problem. Maybe Putin will send us some free food.

Yesterday’s Joke Is Today’s Democrat Economic Policy

The last time Democrats inflicted this much damage on the economy, Jimmy Carter was bumbling around the White House and Saturday Night Live was funny:

Dan Aykroyd must have been peering into the future:

“I will present to Congress the Inflation Maintenance Program, whereby the US Treasury will make up any inflation cost losses through direct tax rebates to the public in cash.

“Now you may say, Won’t that cost a lot of money? Won’t that increase the deficit? Sure it will. But so what? We’ll just print more money.”

Unsurprisingly, California leads the way in actually implementing this policy. If you want to see what Democrats will do to us next, look to the erstwhile Golden State. To see what comes next after that, refer to Venezuela, then Zimbabwe.

A long list of other states have plans to counter inflation with tax rebates:

Even so, the rebate checks aren’t likely to cover the increased costs that most Americans are facing, since states are typically proposing checks of several hundred dollars while the average family will pay an estimated $2,000 in additional costs this year due to the higher prices of gas alone.

But inflation is insidious, so you don’t notice just how much it is costing you. In contrast, even a modest tax rebate can feel like a bonanza — especially if you are getting rebated the taxes someone else paid.

The rising cost of gasoline — a major driver of all rising costs — is mainly the result of Democrats’ ideologically inspired war on fossil fuels. The media has been gaslighting the gullible into blaming Putin, but only our real enemies inflate our currency or prevent us from drilling our own oil — namely, Democrats.

World Begins to Move Away From Dollar

When people of Joe Biden’s caliber took over Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and Venezuela, the resulting looting spree produced hyperinflation that reduced the currency to virtual worthlessness, so that money literally was not worth the paper it was printed on. The inflation Biden has presided over is bad but not that bad yet, because the US dollar is the world’s reserve currency. The ongoing spending blowout by Democrats — financed largely through inflation — comes at the expense not only of Americans, but of the whole world. But this arrangement will not last forever, because the rest of the world does not like being looted by our corrupt and insatiably greedy politicians.

Saudi Arabia has had enough:

Saudi Arabia is in active talks with Beijing to price some of its oil sales to China in yuan … a move that would dent the U.S. dollar’s dominance of the global petroleum market and mark another shift by the world’s top crude exporter toward Asia.

Reckless spending is not the only factor debasing the value of American currency. Democrats’ inept foreign policy also plays a role:

The Saudis are angry over the U.S.’s lack of support for their intervention in the Yemen civil war, and over the Biden administration’s attempt to strike a deal with Iran over its nuclear program. Saudi officials have said they were shocked by the precipitous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year.

The pro-terrorist rhetoric from prominent congresswoman Ilhan Omar of the Committee on Foreign Affairs probably doesn’t help.

China buys more than 25% of the oil that Saudi Arabia exports. If priced in yuan, those sales would boost the standing of China’s currency.

ChiComs’ gain is Americans’ pain, as this comes at our expense. But as Kamala Harris reminds us, many Americans asked for this.

The majority of global oil sales—around 80%—are done in dollars, and the Saudis have traded oil exclusively in dollars since 1974, in a deal with the Nixon administration that included security guarantees for the kingdom.

What is a security guarantee from the USA worth after Biden’s debacle in Afghanistan?

The Saudi move could chip away at the supremacy of the U.S. dollar in the international financial system, which Washington has relied on for decades to print Treasury bills it uses to finance its budget deficit.

Ham-fisted attempts to punish Russia over Ukraine are not helping:

Ali Shihabi, who … ran a pro-Saudi think tank in Washington, said the kingdom can’t ignore China’s desire to pay for oil imports in its own currency, particularly after the U.S. and EU blocked the Russian central bank from selling foreign currencies in its reserves stockpile.

Speaking of Russia,

Russia, many of whose banks have been cut off from the Swift financial network, is exploring opening alternative payment channels with India…

India and Russia are also exploring the possibility of using China’s yuan as a reference currency to value the rupee-ruble trade mechanism…

The rupee-ruble trade is a payment mechanism that can allow Indian exporters to be paid in rupees instead of standard global currencies such as the dollar…

Says Dmitry Solodov, a spokesperson for the Russian embassy in India,

“[T]here is an ongoing natural tendency, which is aimed to decrease the level of dollar-denominated transactions. This tendency is relevant not only to Russia or India but to many other countries too.”

Attempts to marginalize Russia may have the effect of marginalizing the dollar.

Barack Obama used to promise to make America “more like the rest of the world” — i.e., just another country, with no advantages over the rest of them. Biden has followed up on this promise.

Democrats Are Spending America From Freedom to Socialism

There are over 10 million open jobs in the USA. Small businesses are going under because they can’t get people to work. This is because the federal government is paying them not to work with other people’s money. To state the obvious, socialism does not work.

The Washington Examiner reports on the economic insanity imposed by the Marxists who now control the federal government:

Joe Biden may be too cognitively disadvantaged to understand what they are doing to this country, but his handlers aren’t. They know about Weimar Germany, Argentina, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and other countries that have pursued similar economic policies. They are destroying the American economy on purpose so as to reduce us to government-dependent slaves under socialism.

A crucial step is to erase our savings by inflating the dollar to worthlessness. This is the ultimate objective of the ongoing unfunded spending spree. No matter how high they raise taxes, there will be no other way even to pay interest on the debt they are running up than to print ever more money that is worth ever less.

South Africa: At the End of the Rainbow Nation

If you want to know the future of the West, look to South Africa, where the demographics liberals aspire to produce in America and Europe are already in place and their political objectives have been achieved. The white oppressors who built the country out of wilderness are now effectively slaves to blacks who immigrated from other parts of Africa, in accordance with racial justice. Now it remains only for the oppressed to finish looting and burning what others worked to create.

Major upheaval was set off when the judicial system showed encouraging integrity by jailing infamously corrupt former President Jacob Zuma, age 79. At last word, at least 45 people have been killed in rioting, 10 or more of them in a stampede of looters at a shopping center in Soweto.

Nearly 800 people have been arrested. But you can’t arrest the entire population, and you would almost have to in order to restore civilization.

Fires have been set, highways blocked, ATMs disemboweled. Looting is rampant. In Durban, even a blood bank was looted. The lavishly rewarded mostly peaceful protests of Black Lives Matter may have served as an inspiration.

Zuma governed at the head of the same African National Congress that produced liberal demigod Nelson Mandela and current President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Via the Beeb:

Ramaphosa was accused of belatedly deploying troops – and only 2,500 of them compared with the 70,000 he deployed to enforce a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19 last year.

In South Africa as in the USA, Covid lockdowns are serious business, whereas left-wing riots are no biggie.

Police Minister Bheki Cele told journalists on Tuesday that, if the looting continued, there was a risk areas could run out of basic food supplies.

What do they need food for? This is utopia, the country where liberals completely got their way. Let them eat moonbattery.

If South Africa follows former Breadbasket of Africa Zimbabwe into basket case status, Western countries will provide just enough food to keep the half-starved population exploding. Reducing a prosperous country to hell on earth is a small price to pay for the eradication of white privilege.

Not all law-abiding citizens have been disarmed yet. Watch armed citizens fire on looters:

The Battle of Wi Spa

If a single battle sums up the Culture War, it is the Battle of Wi Spa, which began when a woman had the courage to stand up to the liberal establishment by complaining about a transgender person exposing himself in the women’s locker room. The battle escalated on Saturday, with Antifa goons beating Christians outside the spa in the name of the LGBT agenda.

Paul Joseph Watson brings us up to date on this absurd but critical chapter in history:

No one except sociopathic perverts benefits directly from what leftists are attempting to inflict on the innocent at the Battle of Wi Spa. Yet victory would be precious to progressives, because they know their opposition cannot afford to lose.

If liberals can force us to accept degenerates menacing little girls with their private parts in public, they have won. It is too late to defend sanity and decency anywhere if we can’t defend them here. The rest of the war will be a mop-up operation, as moonbats reduce what’s left of the West to an obscene hybrid of the Soviet Union, Zimbabwe, and a San Francisco bathhouse.

Rainbow Utopia Continues to Decay

Maniacs have taken the wheel. They are driving us down the wrong road. The next stop is Belarus. Given our rulers’ obsession with critical race theory and with using immigration and welfare police to make whites a minority, the likely next stop after that is South Africa:

What do an airline bankruptcy, a national post office bankruptcy, a Road Accident Fund bankruptcy, a city’s largest hospital burning down because the fire hydrants weren’t maintained, and parts of a nation’s oldest university destroyed by arson have in common? They all happened in the last four weeks in South Africa, the Rainbow Nation that was supposed to show the world how wonderful things would be if only whites were driven from power.

The American mainstream media used to be obsessed with South Africa. Then they got their way, as Marxist terrorist/liberal demigod Nelson Mandela was placed in power. Now, if you want to learn what’s going on there you have to rely on alternative sources of information.

It is doubtful that many Americans want to live the way South Africans are now forced to do. However, our liberal ruling class believes that its own standard of living will be maintained, even if it manages to inflict its conception of utopia on the rest of us. So we are dragged along the road that formerly wealthy and functional South Africa has traveled before us. It leads to Zimbabwe.

Next Stop, Belarus?

Other countries serve as mileposts on the road that lies ahead of us if we continue to let leftists steer our course. A few years into the future, we will catch up to South Africa, Venezuela, and after them Zimbabwe. The one we reach first may be Belarus, where Alexander Lukashenko has resorted to increasing authoritarianism to quell resistance after “winning” a rigged election:

Over the last few days, a 13-year-old schoolgirl was detained for spraying a protest slogan on the pavement, a mother of five was jailed and charged with extremism for tea parties with her neighbours…

Tea parties? Attorney General Merrick Garland just pricked up his ears. He is currently focused on “stopping domestic violent extremists before they can attack” and “battling the spread of the kind of hate that leads to tragedies.”

Since last August, investigators have brought charges against at least 2,300 people for their involvement in the protests.

Black Lives Matter/Antifa rioters have no need to fear. The tiny minority who are arrested will likely see their charges dropped. But those who attended the Trump rally that preceded the Capitol Riot may receive a visit from authorities, who are searching for thought criminals they can lock up for trespassing.

Innocuous gestures such as displaying the white-and-red protest colours have become a jailable offence in Belarus…

Similarly, the Confederate flag — long a symbol of rebellion — has been criminalized in the Democrat stronghold New York.

Fumes a Belarusian,

“We live in a time when you can get jailed for your thoughts.”

In the USA, this is called committing a hate crime. Legislation in this area will expand rapidly once the Constitution has been removed as an obstacle by packing (or intimidating) the Supreme Court.

The government is poised to harshen the repressions. One draft law would allow police to open fire at unarmed people “at their own discretion” …

Ashli Babbitt could not be reached for comment. Neither could the Capitol Police officer who apparently executed her, because authorities will not tell us his name, only that he will not be charged.

The USA will catch up to Belarus quickly if Democrats are able to impose HR1 and thereby establish single-party rule by reducing elections to banana republic charades.

Tucker Carlson to Be Canceled?

They want more than to subvert the American system of government by institutionalizing election fraud and packing the Supreme Court. They want to eradicate the American nation by displacing its people.

“Replacement theory” is not so much theory as observable fact. Leftists, prominently including Joe Biden, have extolled their strategy of achieving a permanent Democrat majority by importing massive numbers of nonwhites from the Third World. This is why no effort is made to resolve the crisis at the border, which could easily be accomplished simply by closing it. It also provides insight into why Biden’s spending blowouts (both the “coronavirus” and “infrastructure” looting sprees) include cash incentives for single mothers who can’t afford to raise them to have more children.

If you doubt the importance of replacement strategy to leftists, behold their reaction if you draw attention to it. Tucker Carlson recently discussed Democrats’ replacement strategy in strictly nonracial terms, yet it triggered vehement denunciations of his alleged racism. Mark Dice thinks leftists will be able to use this to drive him off Fox News:

Things will not go well for Caucasians when leftists achieve their white minority holy grail. The USA will follow South Africa on the road to Zimbabwe.

The Merriam-Webster definition of genocide warrants repetition:

the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

Leftists will try to silence anyone who draws attention to this objective.

Biden Runs for Senate, Promises $15 Million Minimum Wage

Excellent news! Soon we will all be multimillionaires. Joe Biden has promised a $15 million minimum wage.

He made the promise in Las Vegas Friday, but since no one attends Joe Biden events, it took a few days for word to get around:

Okay, so he lowered the $15,000,000 to $15,000 and then to $15. Zeroes make zero difference with socialists in charge, as anyone from Venezuela or Zimbabwe could tell you. Whichever number Biden’s handlers settle on, jacking up the minimum wage will drive up inflation and unemployment, the latter being not a bug but a feature from the Democrat point of view.

Here’s better news. Biden isn’t really running for president. He’s hoping they will let him back in the Senate:

“We have to come together, that’s why I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate,” Biden said, seemingly misreading his teleprompter script during his remarks in Toledo, Ohio.

Or maybe he is running for both president and senator:

The Adderall must be working wonders to pull Biden’s mind back into focus. So far as I know, he has not forgotten that he is running for president, not senator, since last February.
