The Morning Rant: Globalism’s Gift To America – Mutual Assured Scarcity

It looks like global scarcity and starvation are going to be defining features of the 2020s. And thanks to all the globalists here in our own country - who were successful in destroying America’s self-sufficiency - the US is now guaranteed to suffer along with the rest of the world.

Forget, “Mutual Assured Destruction.” We’re now in the era of “Mutual Assured Scarcity.”

The Age of Scarcity Begins for the Global Economy [Bloomberg – 5/19/2022]

Fault-lines in the world economy are deepening as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s Covid Zero lockdowns disrupt supply chains.

Do you remember how the big selling point of unilateral, unreciprocated “free trade” was lower prices for consumers?

Although Principled Free Traders™ were transparent about the cruel pleasure they derived from seeing blue-collar Americans lose their livelihoods (“Learn to code, deplorables”; “Move, hillbillies, your jobs aren’t coming back” ) they always professed that they were motivated by the goal of lowering consumer prices. Every American job they could ship to China meant lower prices for those Americans who hadn’t yet lost their jobs!

But now the shelves are empty and prices are out of control. That is not what consumers were promised.

We are helpless here in America because of the damage wrought by our own globalists. American farmers being able to feed the country is a national security issue. But US tractor manufacturers can’t even supply enough tractors to our farmers now, because we allowed even that critical facet of national security to be controlled by China and its sphere of influence, which also includes pretty much all trans-Pacific shipping.

The tractor shortage is bad and getting worse.

There are no microchips available for tractors which means many factories are shutdown or limiting supplies.

And by the way --- another casualty is in the midst --- tractor batteries are now in low (or zero) supply in certain areas.

While I genuinely believe that a primary motivation of the Principled Free Traders™ who inflicted this situation on us was their globalist hostility toward the sovereignty of the United States, malice is not the only problem. At the elite schools where they learned to think of themselves as world citizens rather than as Americans, they were poisoned with an education that taught them that weakening America and strengthening our adversaries would bring about universal peace and prosperity.

We cannot let these people cause any more damage. Donald Trump’s America-first, anti-globalist agenda was prescient, but still too late to roll back all the damage done before his presidency.

Mutual Assured Scarcity leads to Mutual Assured Starvation. If globalist politicians in the US believe we must face shortages and hunger here because the rest of the world is dealing with shortages and hunger, then our politicians should not be surprised when hungry citizens start expressing their anger in uncivil ways, as in Sri Lanka right now.

Strangely enough, Democrats are effectively defining themselves as the “The Party of Scarcity.”

John Nolte made some interesting points in a recent Breitbart article.

This is what happens when you give Democrats political power. You see, above all — unless, of course, you’re an illegal alien — Democrats believe in scarcity. Less is what Democrats believe in. Less for everyone. Less energy, less water, less speech, less housing, and (unless you’re an illegal alien), less baby formula.

The “green energy” fairy tale and the climate change agenda will make scarcity a way of life if not stopped, with an accompanying diminution of freedom and our standard of living.

To save this country from Mutual Assured Scarcity and the global pathologies that are unfolding, the Republicans need to fully embrace an America-first agenda that rejects the globalist agenda.

Anti-scarcity is not only a winning political agenda, to maintain peace and prosperity in this country it will require political leaders who embrace American self-sufficiency.
