Radical New Rules for Post-America

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness

There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently.  

1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. 

Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits. But at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. 

Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe permanent zero interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution. 

2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” But he has willfully rendered federal immigration laws null and void. Some rioters are prosecuted for violating federal laws, others not so much. Arrests, prosecutions, and trials are all fluid. Ideology governs when a law is still considered a law.

    The writing is all over the walls, it is the destruction of America and the removal of freedom to this country. A blind person can see what is going on and on. the balance of justice has shifted if you are left there is no penalty for breaking rules, if you are from the right throw the book at them. The sad part all these articles, and all these politicians just keep talking and talking and the left keeps spending money like their is no tomorrow and it just keeps getting worse and the talk just keeps going. their is no knowledge or accountability in any of the branches of the government any more freedom is a thing of the past. I will end by saying if that flag is attempted to be taken down it shall and will be a blood bath and any one who is even thought of being with the deep state will be dealt with in a very unkind manner. The people are sick of what is going on

  2. What a censorious world that this remarkably distillative piece is in Am Greatness and Epoch Times and not the New York Times, or even the WSJ. You, along with Heather Mac Donald are my heroes. You’ve both been on my show and, having Heather on got me fired for not being Woke. Yes, we’re in the new and expanded McCarthyism.

    We are going into an abyss of radical, dangerous transformation! Once Biden, corruptly, was elected, our
    realistic sinister expectations, have become a reality. Power & monetary wealth is the Democrat’s goal,
    regardless of the dire consequences we are experiencing! Most voters are ignorant of the tyranny
    that is occurring! Voters need to be educated!
