The easiest way to get someone to change their behavior is to make it cheaper for them to do something else. Look at cigarette use in America after the government began taxing them heavily. In 2022 only 11% of adults told pollsters from Gallup that they smoke, as opposed to 45% in 1954, and 21% as late as 2014.
You know architects of the Great Reset want the world to use fewer fossil fuels. The easiest way to make that happen is to make fossil fuels too expensive for more people. Fossil fuels happen to be the bedrock of the modern economy, and without them, standards of living across the globe will, in the short to medium term, necessarily decline. So the plan is to change the world by destroying its economy.
The NY Post explains that this is the plan for Joe Biden, but that he doesn’t want voters to know that, for obvious reasons. They write:
Team Biden displayed some rare honesty Thursday, essentially admitting the prez is fine with high gasoline prices — he just doesn’t want them to hurt Democrats in the midterms.
Rather than deny Saudi claims that Washington had only asked for a month’s delay of OPEC+ plans to cut oil production, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby confessed: “We presented Saudi Arabia with an analysis” that showed OPEC “could easily wait” until its next meeting before its planned reductions. And that next meeting is Dec. 4, after America votes.
Our own Michael Goodwin rightly and thoroughly flagged one outrage here: This is a clear case of asking a foreign power to interfere in US elections, exactly the charge Democrats used to impeach President Donald Trump. So let us beat home another obscenity: This is further proof that no amount of American suffering will end President Joe Biden’s war on gas and oil.
The only difference is that he used to be open about it. In 2020, when gas prices were low under Trump, Biden publicly “guaranteed” he’d completely “end fossil fuel.” Debating Trump, he said he’d “transition” the oil industry to death. As late as this May, he cheered the soaring gas costs clobbering motorists: “We’ll be less reliant on fossil fuels when this is all over.”
And, for all his claims to be doing everything in his power to bring prices down, he hasn’t relented in his war on domestic production. It’s all been temporary gimmicks, like depleting the Strategic Oil Reserve and asking the Saudis to wait a single month, plus dubious moves like reaching out to Iranian and Venezuelan tyrannies to boost US imports.
It recalls then-President Barack Obama’s open-mic 2012 oopsie, “confidentially” telling Russia’s Dmitry Medvedev to “tell Vladmir” he’d have “more flexibility” to give Putin what he wanted once the election was over. Obama plainly feared telling Americans his real views; Biden’s loud complaints about the Saudis now fit the same script.
Soaring energy prices are one of voters’ top concerns, yet Biden’s only interest is in snowing the public with gimmicks like a one-month OPEC+ delay on cutting supplies and pretending that rising prices are all Putin’s fault.
The president and his entire party won’t abandon green extremism, but try to deceive the nation about it. (Heck, they just labeled their huge green-energy corporate-welfare bill “The Inflation Reduction Act” when it did nothing to cut inflation.) That leaves any American who wants energy prices to stop soaring no choice but to vote for every Republican in sight in November’s elections.
Action Line: The Great Reset is about controlling your behavior to reach the goals of the “elites.” The inflation is intentional. It’s policy driven. You need to be aware of it, prepare for it, and work to avoid it. Your money is its chief victim, as inflation deteriorates the value of your savings.
