  • So, when do you estimate that the Democratic coalition will start to seriously implode? It's already starting, I'm just wondering when it's truly going to start moving.
    Separate question for this: would you say that in regards to things like China and trade and whatnot, it's almost irrelevant what Biden wants to do, for reasons pointed out by Peter Zeihan?
    I hope you're not annoyed by my asking various questions; I am genuinely interested in what you have to say, which is why I ask you so many.

    So, what do you see happening if Biden tries to move against fracking?

    *Peak Oil Intensifies.*
    *blinks* Come again? What do you mean by that?

    Basically, gas prices soar and his ass is fucked six ways to Sunday.

    Biden won't move against shale. He might pass regulations and such that hurt shale, but he won't choke it or ban it. He'll do what Obama did and ignore the Greens.

    It's basically when the price to extract oil from the ground starts to exceed the profit margins of extraction and the refining process to be more precise.

    Edit.
    My reasoning for the above comment is that if Biden is actually insane enough to go hardline and ban shale we will be one step closer to running out of fuel.

    That's not even taking into account that even if Biden doesn't go hardline who'a to say the same thing won't happen when the left further radicalized at the base level.
    What do you think about the likelyhood of the Dems getting their wishlist fulfilled? You know, eliminating the filibuster period, statehood for DC and Puerto Rico, packing the Supreme Court, mass amnesty for illegals, etc. And the results of them getting it.

    On another subject, what do you think will be the end result of Big Tech's current purge of Trump supporters?

    They are. But that's just how it has to be. It's not that these businesses want to do this. If they had it their way, people would be posting porn and shit without anyone batting an eye. The problem that they're facing is that these same people are threatening their business model; spend a shitload of money on R&D to produce high end technological products. Then force slaves or near-slaves in different countries to produce the goods at rock-bottom prices to ignorant Americans. Big Business is doing this in the same way that you might cut off your arm to stop necrosis from spreading through your entire body.

    As for Biden and Harris, I'm not entirely sure what to think.

    On the one hand, Biden is old and is in the earlier stages of dementia. So his ability to lead is going to be compromised. The fact that his son is under investigation and that he had alleged connections with China is also not going to work in his favor. Then again, it's obvious that Biden's administration is going to be "led by committee" sort of thing. That means that him being the weak joint won't really change much. And when you think of it, in a time of political peace, a lot of leaders are actually limited by the needs and wants of their political party and voters.

    Putting in Kamala Harris won't necessarily make the administration better. If it's led by a group and not an individual, then Biden being the weak link is not a necessarily big problem. And Biden, even though he is going through dementia, is well educated in politics. So it's going to be the aspect of his mind that suffers the least, because of how deeply engrained that knowledge is. Harris is also far less popular than Biden--which is saying a lot. Kamala is probably the back-up plan for if/when Biden loses too much of his wits to be able to hold onto his position.
    Could you give your opinion on current events? Particularly the loss of the Republicans in the Senate runoff elections in Georgia, and the growing split between the old neocon establishment and the populists?

    Basically, the old Neo-Liberals have realized that they can't win an election by pandering to the SJWs/Commies/Greens, because of the growing populist attitude in the United States. Their hope is I think, to try and turn the dial back to 2008 or 2016, when things started to go wrong. To that end, they have made common cause with the Neo-cons to oust Trump so that they MIGHT retake their party. The Neo-Liberals are intent on slowly pushing the far left out of positions of power and steering things back on course.

    The goal of the old guard is to get rid of the populists who they view as the troublemakers and revert things back to the way they were.

    That is not likely to work out. The GOP cannot win another election without the populists. The populists will probably end up purging the Neo-Cons, who will then shift over into the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party will probably shift more towards the center and leave the far leftists out in the cold. Because really, when you come down to it, they're mostly situated in Deep Blue states and don't have any other option as far as voting goes, save to spoil their own side.

    I heard Ted Wheeler got punched. The cracks are starting. Not on video but after the video stopped.
    What would you tell those that think the Democrats will win through unprecedented levels of vote fraud and a compliant media? I've said elsewhere that I think it's nonsense, but I'd like to know exactly what you'd say. I find your responses illuminating.

    Democrats, for sure. Trump lost a bit of enthusiasm during Covid from the looks of it, but I think it's still much higher than he had in 2016. Meanwhile, Biden's gains were still not as high as Clinton's. And with the media blackout on the Biden scandal, we're still seeing large search trends on Google. Without any sort of objective means of measuring it due to media corruption, Biden may be suffering a systematic collapse in support and we wouldn't even know it.

    But all signs to show that his in-party support is lower than what Clinton had. And it cost her the election.

    Severely worried about election theft RN!
    Tell me, what do you think those who call this a Flight 93 election, and that the Democrats winning means that the US will turn into the United Socialist States of America? (I think I know generally what you think of that, but would like specifics.)

    Second, the Communists and maybe even the Progressives, are on their way out. The DNC has realized that they cannot sway Middle America with communist policies. Instead, they're moving toward a moderate position by trying to draw in the globalists members of the right; the national security and business people. The next major orientation for US politics is likely to start settling along the lines of Globalist Liberals versus Nationalist Conservatives. And with the accelerating fall of the global order, the globalist liberals will mainly focus on overseas American business investments in a fashion similar to Pre-WWII America.

    Meanwhile, the Republicans will shift to bring in more Blacks, Hispanics, and Catholics, while trying to secure SCOTUS and roll back a lot of liberal judicial activity. The race card won't vanish, but it will certainly be a lot less formidable as it has been in the past 20 years.

    Third, US partisans either seem to think that permanent victory is at hand or imminent doom will devour us. This is really nothing new. The US political system is simply reaching an end phase of its political and economic cycles, which happens every 80 to 50 years respectively. It's just right now it's happening with both cycles ending at the same time, which then sends the shockwaves around the world as the US's apathy to the world system creates power vacuums and wars. It's not the end of the country and it's not the herald of US communism nation-wide.

    State Governors and legislations will simply begin refusing to follow the ideology of the others and you'll see more power shift towards the states until the country as a whole establishes two parties that lean more toward a balanced middle, where power will then probably re-focus back on the Federal level.

    You know, my immediate thought is that's probably a more natural divide than the previous arrangement.
