As President Joe Biden’s first actions become clearer, he is going to be a disaster. He suspended President Trump’s executive order to lower insulin and epinephrine prices for low-income people. The measure, was aimed to require some community health centers to deliver savings to low-income patients. The medicines people need to survive. The health centers objected, claiming the regulation was merely an administrative burden that paints them as entities that price-gouge patients. And now he’s just ordered ICE to release all their prisoners. We are the world, I guess. Come one, come all.

Trump aimed to use executive orders in Operation Warp Speed to get vaccines faster than anyone thought possible, and the industry fought back. Under Trump, prescription drug prices fell on aggregate for the first time in nearly half a century.

Now we have learned that Joe Biden has called British Prime Minister Boris Johnson about their “Build Back Better” agenda during a Saturday phone call. This is a very big deal. They apparently are accepting the appalling ideas of “The Great Reset” which are not only meant to destroy capitalism, but to put the world’s peoples firmly under government control. Enter the words “The Great Reset” over Bob Hope’s head in the sidebar and read it all, and use those words for your own search online. Visit Climate Depot, Wattsupwiththat, and Dr.Roy Spencer. The world has apparently gone certifiably nuts, and we’re just left behind to try to figure out what the hell is happening.

They don’t want the people to actually have all those freedoms promised by the Constitution. They can’t pack the courts to get them to deliver more favorable rulings. Freedoms that allow nasty people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul to say unkind things about them and fight against their proposals, and actually allows someone like Donald Trump to become president. And of course they want to arrange things so that they win the elections all the time, not just part of the time.

Biden just ordered ICE to release all their prisoners, who are not just illegal aliens who have overstayed their welcome, but also people who have committed serious crimes, released. All of them, no matter what they have done, selling drugs, rape, everybody come and live in America? For careful accurate information on all matters about immigration, visit the Center for Immigration Studies, a think-tank devoted to that:

That, of course, is the reason for choosing cabinet members, not for their experience and skills, but for checking off “inclusiveness” blocks. New Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was not chosen because he loves to ride on trains, but because he is an openly gay man in a gay marriage. There is another official chosen because they are transgendered. I was going to point out ageism, but them I remembered that Joe Biden is our oldest president ever, and realized that category was covered.

The British medical journal The Lancet claims in its latest issue that “the effects of the dual crises of climate change and the coronavirus are “converging” and require a concerted response.” Let’s start with the fact that there is no climate crisis. The earth is warming, very slightly, but it has warmed far more in the past, and proved to be no big deal. I will say it again. The most recent science says that the earth has been warmer in the past. Swedish autistic child Greta Thunberg has been misled, but her parents are doing very nicely on the revenue from her efforts. The Lancet says:

Despite their apparent dissimilarities, the causes of both crises “share commonalities” and “their effects are converging,” it declares. “The climate emergency and COVID-19, a zoonotic disease, are both borne of human activity that has led to environmental degradation.”

The journal asserts that both the coronavirus and climate change “have led to the preventable loss of lives through actions that are delayed, insufficient, or mistaken,” giving, of course, no examples of death by climate change.

Joe Biden wants to combine the climate and coronavirus in order to get them through the Senate. Nancy Pelosi has just inadvertently admitted that she has been withholding the Coronavirus relief funds so desperately needed by closed restaurants and stores, in order to get the credit for a new Democrat president instead of the hated Trump. These lefties, Democrats, the World Economic Forum, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Joe Biden, Pope Francis, are arguing for a “global reset”, the object of which is to end capitalism,  bring on world government, an end to nations, and other lefty delusions.

The trouble with Capitalism is, of course, that it allows some people to get rich, even very rich. AOC is selling a tee-shirt that says in small type on the front “Tax the Rich”, for which she is charging $58. The primary delusion of Communism or Socialism is that you can make everybody equal. Then you don’t have to feel guilty if you drive a better car than your neighbor. People are not equal. You cannot make them equal. Some people are pretty, others fat and ugly. Some people are very intelligent, others not so much, ambitious, while others are lazy.  Our differences are what make us human. We are an imperfect race, but we are not yet a mindless bunch of identical robots. The hallowed Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the Great Depression last seven years longer than was necessary, and died in the arms of his mistress in Warm Springs, Georgia, leaving Eleanor behind, I assume with the little dog Fala.

How anybody can, in the face of so many bad examples, Russia, China, Cuba, Venezuela etc. think that communism is a good idea, boggles the mind. You might search out The Black Book of Communism at your public library or at Amazon. Or if that is too big and fat a book for you, Richard Pipes has out a very nice history of Communism. Also, while I’m at it, look for Thomas Sowell’s A Conflict of Visions, and Marxism.

What is The Great Reset? by The Elephant's Child

You don’t have to have read a lot of history to realize that every so often somebody pops up with a better idea for humanity. They want to fix us. The names in modern times are familiar, Benito Mussolini, Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung , some get far enough to make it into the pages of history, some try but never catch on. It takes a certain kind of mindset to think you have the correct plan to fix humanity. We do have to admit cheerfully that we are imperfect. But very possibly we were meant to be that way.

But the events of 2020 have changed all that because COVID-19 has provided the perfect pretext for the kind of co-ordinated globalist takeover which might previously have been little more than an evil glint in Klaus Schwab’s eyes. Here’s a new name to add to the list: Klaus Schwab. He’s a bald German in his early Eighties, who in the 1970s founded what is now known as the World Economic Forum. They have an annual summit in Davos, Switzerland. James Delingpole notes “that’s where billionaires go to lecture millionaires on how ordinary people live.”

You start with believing the Autistic Swedish child that the world is going to end shortly if we don’t DO SOMETHING about climate change. If you would listen to scientists who have spent lifetimes studying climate science instead of Autistic Swedish children, it would be a good start. Dr. Roy Spencer (link in the sidebar) not only has spent a lifetime studying the science but he runs the satellites that measure the temperatures of the earth for NASA. On his website, you will find a handy essay on global warming and what it means, as well as all sorts of other valuable information. Visit Climate Depot (link in the sidebar) where you can order Climate Hustle 1 and 2 to explain the Climate Wars. Climate Hustle 2 looks at both popular scientific claims surrounding climate change and examines the motivations of those clamoring for immediate action.

Interestingly, some 30 percent of Democrats want a more thorough and official investigation of the Joe Biden/ Hunter Biden affair and all its implications.

Way back in 2015, Christiana Figueres, at the time the General Secretary of the IPCC, at a press conference, announced that “Climate Change” was our best opportunity to get rid of Capitalism, permanently. I assume that is still what they’re after. I’m rather fond of capitalism myself.
