Lydia from comments thread setting the stage: With President Donald John Trump settled in the chair used for decades by the great and dearly long-departed Sir Winston Churchill, we all know by this time the litany of events over the past two years that have made us a laughing stock and a patsy. The Saudi’s have made videos mocking Joke Biden and Kamala. There is no need for China to explain how the Wuhan Flu originated. Just ask Fauci, since he paid for it. Or maybe ask the US military, since they were the ones that pushed for ongoing GOF research. Oh, and the reason Fauci was the highest paid employee of the government? The DoD paid him too, to go around Obama’s restrictions on GOF.
Hillsdale College has posted an enlightening speech that RFK Jr. gave there recently. Whether you like him or not, it’s worth an hour of your time. (Note: sometimes RFK is difficult to understand with his voice problems, but the tremors are minimal in this speech.) The global chaos Biden has caused is no accident. If it was incompetence, the regime would self-correct rather than double down.
On the other hand, VDH seems to have forgotten items that have made the US the world’s pariah, since there’s little question who blew up the Nordstream pipeline, and as Trump noted, it wasn’t Russia. The other is the whole-government twisted fixation with LGBTQXYZ ideology and denial of sexual reality. A country that encourages the mutilation of children’s bodies and bolsters mental illness is too much, even for violent authoritarian regimes. Flying Pride flags at our embassies only advertises the sickness that has taken hold. [end]
For those who still value the rule of law, regardless of what the Russians and Ukrainies are up to, there can be no acts of war committed by the US without war being properly declared, thus one hopes everything’s kosher about the weaponry, but one has to doubt it. People don’t have any real idea how much of what is going to Ukraine any more than millions more of us do. Matter of fact, the DoD doesn’t even seem to know exactly under what circumstances the current administration have allowed plenty of modern stuff to be dispatched to our enemies already. THAT!
Little by little, the regime is convincing people they’re out of touch and out of their minds. People don’t believe it until it actually affects them. Gas prices are rising again and even the dumbest can’t blame Trump. Even going after Trump with unsubstantiated criminal claims has penetrated to some degree.
Things will need to get even worse before enough people wake up. Yours truly has a feeling this will be a “hot” summer in more ways than one. Either way, provoking another nuclear power for no other reason than protecting an important part of your theft operation is way too dangerous to be taken so lightly. THAT!
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness: ‘The Biden 10-Step Plan for Global Chaos’ …
Our enemies do not fear us, our allies judge us unreliable, and neutrals assume America is in descent and too dangerous to join.
Why is French President Emmanuel Macron cozying up to China while trashing his oldest ally, the United States? Why is there suddenly talk of discarding the dollar as the global currency? Why are Japan and India shrugging that they cannot follow the United States’ lead in boycotting Russian oil? Why is the president of Brazil traveling to China to pursue what he calls a “beautiful relationship”?
Why is Israel suddenly facing attacks from its enemies in all directions? What happened to Turkey? Why is it threatening fellow NATO member Greece? Is it still a NATO ally, a mere neutral, or a de facto enemy?
Why are there suddenly nonstop Chinese threats toward Taiwan? [-]
[+] … Let us answer by listing 10 ways by which America lost all deterrence.
1) Joe Biden abruptly pulled all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. He left behind to the Taliban hundreds of Americans and thousands of pro-American Afghans. Biden abandoned billions of dollars in U.S. equipment, the largest air base in central Asia—recently retrofitted at a cost of $300 million—and a $1 billion embassy. Our government called such a debacle a success. The world disagreed and saw only humiliation.
2) The Biden Administration allowed a Chinese high-altitude spy balloon to traverse the continental United States, spying on key American military installations. The Chinese were defiant when caught and offered no apologies. In response, the Pentagon and the administration simply lied about the extent that China had surveilled top-secret sites.
3) In March 2021, at an Anchorage, Alaska mini-summit, Chinese diplomats unleashed a relentless barrage at their stunned and mostly silent American counterparts. They lectured the timid Biden Administration diplomats about American toxicity and hypocrisy. And they have defiantly refused to explain why and how their virology lab birthed the COVID virus that has killed tens of millions worldwide. [-]
[+] … This list of these self-inflicted disasters could be easily expanded.
But the examples explain well enough why our emboldened enemies do not fear us, our triangulating allies judge us unreliable, and calculating neutrals assume America is in descent and too dangerous to join.
Yet without America, the result is a new Chinese order in which, to quote the historian Thucydides, “the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.” [end]

Little by little, the regime is convincing people they’re out of touch and out of their minds. People don’t believe it until it actually affects them. Gas prices are rising again and even the dumbest can’t blame Trump. Even going after Trump with unsubstantiated criminal claims has penetrated to some degree. As mentioned above, my personal opinion is that things will need to get even worse before enough people wake up. I’ve got a feeling this will be a “hot” summer in more ways than one.
That’s just it – Americans want none of this. It is a government run amok, with no jurisdiction over any of this, and intentionally ignoring the Constitution. What else could convince people this entire administration is an illegitimate occupation of OUR government and country!
The world sees a country imploding from within, unstable and crazy to boot. We’re ripe for the picking. Pay close attention to what is aimed at Israel, and if those forces are inexplicably defeated and their hosts neutralized, if not utterly destroyed, that is the point at which those with eyes to see and ears to hear should get right with Jesus, because that is the start of the excrement hitting the ventilator, and He will not be far behind it. The FJBiden 10-step plan for idiocy. THAT!
Only strength can cooperate. Weakness can only beg. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
