Inflation is now at its highest level in 31 years, but the Biden Administration would have us believe that higher prices have no connection to its big government policies, and that the president and his subordinates have little if any influence on the cost of purchasing what we need to live.
Article by Thomas McArdle from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
Biden himself passes the buck and claims that high gasoline prices are “because of the supply being withheld by OPEC.” His secretary of energy, Jennifer Granholm, laughs off a query about the administration’s domestic fossil fuel policy because it would take a “magic wand” to influence the global oil market “controlled by a cartel … called OPEC.”
At least she didn’t encourage the wearing of Gerald Ford’s “Whip Inflation Now” buttons with their implicit message that it is consumers’ own fault for buying what they liked. Presumably this administration considers it a coincidence that the energy independence we enjoyed before Biden came into office went hand-in-hand with low costs at the pump.
It would be political suicide to encourage Americans to learn to stop worrying and love the boom in the prices of their food and fuel, but despite this White House’s rhetoric, the notion that “inflation is good” is far from new as a principle of class warfare. And global warming fanaticism makes it all the more attractive to the left.
For instance, the late Marxian journalist and “Secrets of the Temple” author William Greider, whom Rolling Stone magazine enlisted to make taxes and spending look as cool as the free market was cruel, believed that higher prices have “a redistributive effect from those who have accumulated financial wealth to those who are borrowers.”
And probably no one’s work has been used to justify big-spending, inflationary policies more than that of the most influential economist of the 20th century, John Maynard Keynes. As conservative economist Thomas Sowell has noted, “In the heyday of Keynesian economics, many economists believed that inflationary government policies could reduce unemployment, and early empirical data seemed to support that view.”
Yet Keynes himself, in “The Economic Consequences of the Peace” in 1919, warned that inflation is a favored weapon of collectivists—including Communists—to damage or even destroy the free market.
“Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency,” Keynes pointed out over a century ago, during the infancy of the Soviet Union. “By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens …. Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency.”
In the 2020s, “saving the planet” provides a powerful new rationale for overturning the basis of the free world’s society. In the United States, gasoline prices have been among the lowest in the world for decades, an obstacle to making alternative forms of energy price competitive. We may not hear Democrat politicians call for big increases in fuel prices, but such calls are to be found under the radar in the work of the academics and other thinkers of deep thoughts who provide the intellectual foundation of Democrats’ policies. Higher gas prices are euphemistically referred to as “Incorporating the real costs of health, carbon and resource degradation into fuel pricing.”
Back during the Obama Administration, one green scholar cited the work of a German transportation economist to advocate massively increasing gasoline taxes in the United States by “more than $7.62 a gallon.” This was deemed necessary so our country would be ”fully corrected for the social costs of car reliance” in spite of the admitted fact that doing this “would upend life as Americans know it.”
Oil brings food from farm to table, gets us to work and back, takes those in danger of death to the emergency room, and warms us in the winter months. When fossil fuels get more expensive, it cannot help but exacerbate inflation in the general economy.
We may live in a democratic republic, not a totalitarian tyranny, but as inflation rages it is worth appreciating what Keynes recognized to be up the sleeve of the founder of the Soviet state over a century ago: that government, “secretly and unobserved,” uses inflation to confiscate the wealth of its citizens as a sure, if subtle, means of upending a society based on economic freedom.
Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
