Excellent presentation. Logical; factual; I can find little to argue with the presenter.

Two factoids, though: First, what the oligarchs, the Elites, discount...is that our world is SO rich, BECAUSE of full, free, voluntary participation in the economy. Planned economies, such as that of the USSR; or feudal economies, such as post-Roman Europe, do NOT produce much more than sustenance.

China is a Potemkin Free-Enterprise economy - a Fascist economy run by Communists. And that leads to stress. The "Mercantile" model explains best what's happening there; but what it means is, if the Untied Skates collapses, China quickly follows. They're a symbiant - living off the host, the West.

So...Transform (they love that word) us into a Stalinist planned economy, and we will be no more prosperous than Russia in Stalin's time.

Second issue is: Oligarchs are buying up land. LEGAL control. Dependent on Rule of Law - which they're eagerly undercutting.

Rule of Law did nothing to preserve Louis. It didn't preserve the ruling elites in Cuba. Any number of Central American nations' "Presidents" have been lined up against adobe walls and shot dead.

That's what will happen here, too, once the combination of hunger, racialism and Identity Politics, and ostentatious displays by the victorious Elites, comes to be. True fact: NO nation or society has EVER undergone a transformation or Regime Change without a complete changeover of the Elite Ruling Class. Generally that comes from the usurpers taking the former Elites out to trench graves. Sometimes it's a little less dramatic.

So...interesting times ahead. But in the end I think the Oligarchs' reach exceeds their grasp.

I reiterate;

They want to control energy output and bring first world nationals to their knees. Without energy we eventually starve and live shorter lives. Controlling energy in a fashion wherein they say we are running out and this is the way it is allows them to kill without blame. Not only do they want control, they want us dead. They also want us all to be mudbloods hence, the push to open borders.

In Biden, they have the perfect foil. An inept, corrupt bungler who does their bidding without remorse or even thought.

Of course (demonstrably) that's what they want.

When it starts to happen, though...THEY FAIL.

That's not to say they won't set in motion a whole lot of misery. It's just that in pulling the Free Market and the Middle Class down, they also come down.

And their survival skills are even less than ours. What do they have? **LEGAL** title to land and businesses. Dependent on Rule of Law.

And they have dollars. Dependent on the economic system they're destroying; coring out.

I think in the end, they will wind up worse than any Bolivian President who was overthrown, ever did.

Can't have a 1st world nation like America without AC.
From NBC so I refuse to link. Of course there is no mention of the alternatives. All lies by omission.

Biden admin’s first climate pollution rule takes aim at refrigerants​

Hydrofluorocarbons, used frequently in air conditioners and refrigerators, are greenhouse gases that trap heat — and do so far more than other gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.

By Josh Lederman
WASHINGTON – The Biden administration used its federal powers to limit emissions for the first time Monday, proposing a rule that would phase out the use of a common refrigerant blamed for driving global warming.
Hydrofluorocarbons, known as HFCs and used frequently in air conditioners and refrigerators, are greenhouse gases that trap heat — and do so far more than other gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. The new rule from the Environmental Protection Agency will require the U.S. to ramp down production and import of HFCs by 85 percent over the next 15 years.

Phasing out HFCs worldwide is expected to avert up to 0.5 degrees Celsius of global warming by the end of the century, the EPA said, a significant step toward meeting global goals of limiting climate change to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
“Put simply, this action is good for our planet and our economy,” EPA Administrator Michael Regan said.
The move marks the first new regulation proposed by the Biden administration to curb pollutants blamed for global warming, drawing on the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act, which was tucked into a massive Covid-19 relief and government spending bill that Congress passed in December and then-President Donald Trump signed into law.


As the Biden administration seeks to meet its goal of cutting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at least in half by 2035, tackling HFCs is among the rare low-hanging fruit, enjoying broad bipartisan support in Congress, as well as buy-in from industry groups.
Initially developed to replace other refrigerants like Freon, HFCs were once viewed as environmentally preferable because they have less of a depleting effect on the ozone layer. A fuller understanding of their ability to trap heat in the atmosphere has since prompted widespread global concern.

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute, a trade group that represents major refrigeration manufacturers, applauded the EPA’s move, saying it would “help create the certainty necessary for U.S. companies to maintain their natural technological advantage.”

“It continues our path of industry job creation, innovation and trade, and we are pleased at the signal it sends to the states and to other countries around the world,” its president, Stephen Yurek, said in a statement.
The EPA said that phasing in more energy-efficient cooling methods instead of HFCs would save “billions of dollars.” Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said the rule, combined with other climate-related investments in the December legislation, would “create hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs that will combat climate change.”
David Doniger of the Natural Resources Defense Council also lauded the move.
“Replacing HFCs is a critical and totally doable first step to head off the worst of the climate crisis, and we have safer alternatives ready to go that will save industry money in the bargain,” he said.
Phasing out HFCs globally is also called for in the Kigali Amendment, a 2016 update to the 1987 international treaty known as the Montreal Protocol. Shortly after taking office in January, President Joe Biden signed an executive order embracing the Kigali Amendment and starting the process for sending it to the Senate for ratification.
The EPA plans to finalize the rule later this year after a 45-day public comment period and a public hearing.

We knew it was coming.

Just not the timetable or specifics.

Remember...no matter how critical or basic the threat is, it's being done by IDIOTS. It won't be hard to beat them - all it takes is will, and total commitment to it.

I agree but never....NEVER, underestimate the enemy as those 'idiots' are only the front face of the Bolsheviks! They won't be easy to beat.

All the industry captains are trying to be Woker than Woke.

I guess in all their education, all their life-experiences, they never learned what comes of appeasement.

SWIM has been bankless for over a year. Pita at times but relieving overall.

If you can do it, good on you.

I can't even pay my rent without a bank, now. ONLY EFT payments are allowed.

My pension payments are Direct Deposit, yada yada. In the near future, it will be a problem; but for the moment, it's easier to just deal with it.

Rather than going low with Wells Fargo, or dealing with the venality of JPMChase (used to be my bank; and now they don't allow PMs or cash in SD boxes)...I just use a local credit union. Somewhat superior service; haven't had any problem pulling out $XXXX.xx over the years.

That’s impressive. I can’t see any way I could pull that off until retirement unless I became self employed. Most payrolls are direct deposit only these days. Beyond that the hassle factor would be tremendous.

If I may ask, what’s the advantage? Just personal satisfaction of opting out? I’m trying to think it through but in my mind as long as I’m still earning and spending in dollars I’m still playing their game, banks or not. Unless you are dealing strictly in barter or PMs, it seems like a lot of effort for not much return.

He says you are spot on. Not much effort though, for him. Particularly with his spending habits and prepaid debit cards
