TR 576 - Juggling the Nonsense to Separate the Wheat from the Chaff

Tossing several competing narratives up in the air to see where they land.

I’m excited.

Life is good and getting better, isn’t it?

Behold the narrative:

*** I could go on, but I don’t want to make you puke…

The stock market is teasing new records, the economy has seen 39 months straight of growth, wages are out pacing inflation, job growth has blown past expectations, unemployment has dropped to 3.8%—and even the illegal immigrants are boosting the market, without overheating it and causing inflation of course.

I’m sure you’ve heard it said that Biden’s economy is booming, and now you’ve seen the headlines that “prove it”—all from Trusted News Initiative sources, no less.

Now then, try to imagine if you were living off government subsidies, like the 70 MILLION other Americans currently on welfare programs, and that was all you ever heard, over and over again, ad nauseam: that Biden’s economy is booming.

In that situation, what reason would there ever be to question the hand that feeds you? Why would anyone question what the financial experts at CNN tell them? Why would anyone even have reason to believe anything other than what they’re being told?

Thus, we have millions of useful idiots who believe the lies, who’ve bought the narrative hook, line, and sinker, and who will be voting accordingly in November.

Thanks to the algorithms, most people will never stumble upon any evidence to the contrary. Even those who did get that itching suspicion that they’re getting conned would be hard-pressed to dig up any truly counter-narrative news.

Instead, they get fleeced with propaganda like this:

Don’t miss the subtle suggestions in those headlines. Biden’s economy is the world’s best, but dirty, nasty, dumbass Donald Trump is lying and calling it a cesspool. That’s why all those ignorant MAGA extremists (i.e. 50% of voters) think their financial situation is getting worse — even as markets and employment hit record highs.

Every single month, for 39 straight months, all the government’s carefully produced reports have been “flexing” the economic strength of Biden’s Build Back Better Policies, utterly defying the “lukewarm attitudes” of all of us ignorant peasants.

If we only knew what was good for us!

If only we would learn to trust the government’s trusted sources! Then we wouldn’t be bothered with silly, nonsensical, racist propaganda like this:

From that last article, written by the venerable Jeffrey Tucker of Brownstone:

“All the assurances we get from official economists that life is great, achieve absolutely nothing in terms of convincing the public that what they are seeing all around them is not true. The instincts of the public are absolutely correct, contrary to the one thousand articles pouring out of the legacy media that say otherwise.”

So, what’s really going on with the economy?

The truth is, you get to choose who to believe, and so does everyone else.

The implications of this fact are profound, so let’s zoom out.

Life is good.

Life is good, not because of the lies about how Biden’s economy is booming, but because life is fundamentally good. As discussed many times before, we are hardwired to enjoy the human experience. It can be hard to maintain that perspective when things go sideways, the rug gets pulled out from under you, you’re struggling to buy groceries, and the whole world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket…

And yet the truth remains: life is still good.

It’s like that quote in the Lord of the Rings:

“There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it is worth fighting for.”

If we were to frame the current geopolitical chaos in terms of the timeless battle between good and evil, as Tolkien so brilliantly did, I think we’d find enough breathing room to take a step back and reconnoitre our current situation.

For those of us on the right side of the spectrum (and the right side of history), we’ve been steeped in headlines pointing toward the fact the world is falling apart all around us. Just to prime your palette with a taste of what’s out there:

Speaking of eclipsing things, it’s always intriguing to me when CNN and Fox News are on the same page:

How exciting, right?!

There’s nothing like a national “plunge into darkness” to really bring the country together, right?

That thought could sure put a conspiratorial twist on this story:

Today’s The Day: CERN Will Fire Up Powerful Particle Accelerator During Solar Eclipse

Today’s plunge into darkness might also be a good time for the commies to unleash another “stealth attack” on the grid, one that has the capacity to “wreak havoc” on our critical infrastructure and do something like, you know, like taking control of a barge’s navigation system, crashing into a bridge, and bringing one of America’s busiest ports to a screeching halt, or something like that.

But honestly, it feels like we’ve been through this drill before. It’s always that something might happen—and as long as every day we are reminded that something might happen, then we become sufficiently fixated on the potential impending doom, just long enough to forget that we’ve got a hell of a lot of work to do if we actually want to be prepared for any worse case scenario, let alone do anything to try to prevent that worst case scenario from ever happening.

By the way, here are a few fun shots from the last time we were waiting for the aliens to land (total solar eclipse in east Idaho back in 2017)—can’t tell if the dog was bored or laughing at us!


There are bad things happening, right now, all around the world—there always has been and there always will be—and yet, life is still good.

The world is coming apart at the seams, and it’s all by design—but life is still good.

The commie global cabal is trying to take over the world, the sociopaths running the show do want another global war, the radical climate crazies are trying to depopulate the planet, and the bulk of our bureaucratic establishment is in on all these schemes… but even in the face of all this madness, is it not true that life is still good?

Don’t let them mess with your mind. Let’s ask the only pertinent question:

What the hell are you or I or anyone else going to do about it?

What can we do about it?

Rather than repeating myself about the need to solve macro-level problems with local level solutions, I’d like to shine a little light on how all this has been going down, for much longer than most of us have realized.

Two weeks ago, Jay Inslee, the Illustrious King of Washington State, who is himself an Enlightened Leader (product of the WEF’s Young Global Leaders program), signed into law HB 2000 — “An ACT Relating to renewing Washington’s international leadership.”

How many of Washington’s roughly 7.8 million residents realize that the Evergreen State actually aspires to international leadership? Furthermore, how many people do you think have actually read the resolution? Beyond that, how many would even try to parse the legalese and comprehend what the hell is really going on?

How many people do you think have a problem with designating foreign jurisdictions such as “international organizations” as jurisdictions of “strategic importance” in their everyday lives?

Washington’s international leadership is really all about “policy cooperation” that enables the implementation of the “strategic international engagement plan”—i.e. Agenda 2030. In other words, international leadership is about falling in line, and subjugating the will of the people to the unelected global cabal.

I could even bring it closer to home and point out that globalist corporations and NGOs are actively taking control of our local resources in Klickitat, Wasco, Sherman, and Skamania Counties—all under the guise of sustainable development, emergency management, and “environmental justice” funded by the EPA—right now, right under our noses, and yet virtually NO ONE is aware this is happening.

Not even our locally elected leaders. Though their intentions are generally looking out for the good of the community, they simply cannot see it for what it is. They miss the fact that federal grant money is going directly to international consultants, who then tell local leaders what they must do if they want to keep getting the federal money.

The proof is in the board packets.

All the strings attached essentially tie the hands of local government.

Behold the threat of global governance!

Tyranny is not far behind, I sure you.
