Heinberg: Making America ungovernable

Heinberg: Making America ungovernable thumbnail

The US presidential election of 2020 is now behind us—or is it? President Trump has yet to concede his defeat, and many Republican lawmakers have demanded recounts and backed lawsuits. Some commentators fear that the current administration is laying the groundwork for a coup d’état by preventing the peaceful transfer of power, but—given the extraordinary incompetence displayed by the President and his minions during the past four years—that hardly seems to be a realistic prospect.

Trump & Co. can nevertheless salt the earth with disinformation and with resentment among the Republican voting base, making it impossible for the incoming Biden team to accomplish much. Claims of election fraudulence may prove highly effective to that end: up to 70 percent of Republicans apparently think the vote was hacked by Democrats. There’s no evidence of widespread malfeasance, and Republican lawsuits related to the election are being thrown out by judges in state after state for lack of proof. Still, Trump has spent four years training his followers to regard “evidence” as something you make up on the spot to suit the needs of the moment; for the faithful, mere accusations are sufficiently convincing.

In calm and carefree years, such nasty political infighting would just be grist for late-night comedic TV commentary. However, 2021 promises to be anything but calm and carefree. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is now entering the most virulent stage since its onset, with over 150,000 Americans testing positive for the disease each day. The first million COVID-19 cases in the US took 100 days to accumulate; getting from 10 million to 11 million took just six days. Death counts are also rising, and hospitals are filling up. Health care workers are beyond exhausted, the nation faces a rapidly worsening nursing shortage. While effective vaccines are now on the horizon, they won’t be widely available until spring at the earliest.

Meanwhile, the general public is tired of complying with masking and physical distancing orders. The holidays are looming, and people are hungry for social contact. Political polarization has seriously hampered the nation’s response to the disease, with households choosing to adopt either pro-mask or anti-mask beliefs and behavior. On November 15, a member of the Trump Coronavirus Taskforce called for the people of Michigan to “rise up” against Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s lockdown orders, which had been triggered by a steep increase in cases and hospitalizations. If the nation is to make it through the winter without sustaining a grievous toll, perhaps rivaling that of the 1918 influenza pandemic, it needs both leadership and social cohesion.

Is This a Depression?

Compounding the alarming pandemic risk is the specter of worsening economic conditions. Congress has so far failed to pass a renewed and expanded stimulus bill; if one isn’t quickly forthcoming, the bending economy may break. Businesses—including hundreds of thousands of restaurants, hotels, bars, movie theaters, and retail outlets—that were barely holding on are now starting to give up and shutter for good. Households that are behind on mortgage and rent payments are facing foreclosure and eviction, with up to 40 million Americans at risk of homelessness in the coming months. Food banks are already overstretched. If something doesn’t change, we may be headed toward a depression the likes of which hasn’t been seen in nearly a century.

The Republican-dominated Senate’s unwillingness to back a robust stimulus bill may be part of a longer-range political strategy. Without help from Congress, states are in desperate financial shape because, unlike the federal government, state governments (with the exception of Vermont) must balance their budgets. Since the start of the pandemic, state tax revenues have fallen off dramatically. Without a federal subsidy, states may be forced to go to court to restructure their debt—and many federal judges are now far-right Trump appointees who could demand that blue states like New York cut back on safety-net spending programs. Such cutbacks would undermine popular support for leaders of those states while bailing out wealthy bond holders, many of whom are big Republican donors. Democrats’ best short-term chance at defeating this strategy would be to win control of the Senate by taking both Georgia Senate seats up for a runoff vote in January; longer-term, states may have to set up their own banks and/or issue their own currencies.

But stimulus shenanigans are merely a side show in what is shaping up to be an extended period of map-shifting political, economic, and environmental turmoil.

The Backstory

At the risk of wearying my long-time readers, it’s essential that I review a bit of important context; it’s what I’ve been writing about for the past 20 years. I’ll do this as briefly as possible.

Most economists assume that GDP growth is normal and that the current pandemic-caused economic downturn will be temporary. But, as the authors of The Limits to Growth warned in 1972, no economy can expand forever. The unprecedented manufacturing booms of the 20th century came about because industrial societies had discovered new energy sources—fossil fuels—that enabled far higher rates of production than had ever been seen previously. Since 1820, both population and per-capita energy usage have grown eight-fold globally. Due in part to the fact that some of the world’s best petroleum resources happened to be located in the US, Americans ended up being the top beneficiaries of the most powerful wealth-generating mechanism in human history.

But the fossil-fuel era is heading toward its inevitable conclusion. Oil, gas, and coal companies harvest fossil fuels using the low-hanging fruit principle, targeting the highest-quality and easiest-to-get resources first. After many decades of this, what’s left are largely low-grade resources that require extra effort to extract or process. In effect, the wealth-generating machine is starting to run low on fuel.

Even assuming a serious effort to build out alternative (i.e., solar and wind) energy infrastructure over the next couple of decades, we are in for economic contraction—which is required in any case to prevent catastrophic climate change, resource depletion, and habitat destruction. Sadly, America’s political, economic, media, and scientific elites have utterly failed to alert the masses that the rest of this century will see economic shrinkage. Without planning and preparation, uncontrolled and chaotic collapse is more likely than controlled contraction—which, in the best instance, could yield a way of life that’s more localized, more equitable, and happier, at perhaps a 1950s US level of per capita consumption.

This backstory continues to evolve as fossil fuels deplete and as conditions shift in the economy and society at large. One of the less foreseeable kinds of developments during the rise and decline of the industrial era is the eruption of pandemics; and one of casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic is the oil and gas industry. In the wake of global lockdowns and the resultant cratering of tourism and the airlines, oil prices have been depressed. Fuel prices are too low to yield profits for companies that specialize in fracking, so dozens of drillers are set to go bankrupt. Climate activists will applaud. But given that what’s left of America’s oil and gas will be increasingly costly to extract, it’s likely that declining energy demand (due to the pandemic and its lingering economic impacts) will curtail energy supply, which will further impede the economy in a self-reinforcing feedback loop that is, in some ways, a mirror image of the process that drove global growth in past decades.

Now add climate change to this toxic recipe. Even with declining rates of fossil fuel combustion, we are headed for worsening storms, droughts, floods, fires, and crop failures. Towns and cities around the world will need to adapt quickly, and that will be costly. Further, adaptation will, again, require leadership and social cohesion. Instead, America may be lurching toward further political division and violence.

Bad Timing

Ecologist Peter Turchin began his career studying beetles. After using unprecedentedly large piles of data to resolve long-standing theoretical issues regarding beetle population growth and decline, Turchin—now tenured at the University of Connecticut—decided to turn his attention to a bigger problem: human history. He teamed up with colleagues to build a database of hundreds of societies over the past 10,000 years; then he looked for patterns. One that immediately leapt out was a periodicity of growth and decline based on economic inequality: elites always tended to capture more and more of society’s wealth, but that trend would typically reach a limit when the general populace became utterly impoverished. Then an “Age of Discord” would follow, when the government became destabilized and political violence increased.

Another cyclical factor that emerged from the data was what Turchin calls “overproduction of elites.” As societies grow and as wealth is continually transferred toward the top of the social pyramid, ambitious families understandably prepare their children for powerful and rewarding careers. But the number of elite aspirants typically tends to grow faster than the number of elite positions in society, leading eventually to growing competition among elites. Crises of economic inequality and elite overproduction tend to coincide; at such moments, discouraged elite aspirants often present themselves as champions of the downtrodden masses in order to gain power by overthrowing the establishment.

Turchin has been warning for almost a decade that the US is, by all the measures he studies, approaching such a crisis. He says the next five years are likely to see political violence on a scale that America has not witnessed in decades.

As if on cue, groups of mostly young men appear to be prepping for bloodshed. The far right has generated an array of such groups, including The Proud Boys, The Base, Oath Keepers, The Missouri Militia, and many others, with varying priorities and strategies. Armed groups on the left appear to be far less numerous (though minorities, women, and anti-gun supporters are buying guns), the main example being Antifa, which is comprised of autonomous groups and individuals seeking to combat fascists and racists using both nonviolent and violent direct action. Each group has its favored theoreticians and tacticians. One strain of thought, known as accelerationism, has both right- and left-leaning adherents, who all believe that capitalism—with its socially and environmentally disruptive side effects—should be accelerated instead of moderated so as to precipitate industrial collapse, after which society can be reordered from scratch along lines preferable to members of whatever group happens to be prepared to take charge amid the chaos.

While a few commentators are warning that another Civil War could be looming, an organized face-off between groups of states, as occurred in the 1860s, seems highly unlikely. Political violence will more likely take the form of increasingly bloody public demonstrations phasing into episodic and regional guerilla-style attacks, reprisals, and government assertions of force.

Misinformed and Disinformed

Personally, even though I know the industrial economy we all depend upon has no future, I’m no accelerationist. Instead, I believe we should look for ways to minimize both human and non-human casualties during the inevitable period of economic decline and political turmoil ahead. That means moderating the various forms of physical power (energy usage, weaponry, resource extraction) and social power (wealth inequality, top-down coercive institutions, population growth) that have propelled us to the precipice of collapse, while finding alternative low-energy, equitable ways of fulfilling basic human needs. Democratic governance is essential to that project. Speeding up collapse might arguably reduce nonhuman casualties, but the human toll would be horrific.

Unfortunately, public support for a managed power-down is still minimal, because most people are still unaware of the nature of our collective crisis and the available options for dealing with it. Misinformation and disinformation are everywhere. Much misinformation comes from trusted sources—the mainstream media and various political, scientific, and economic elites trotted out as experts. The centrist, establishment media—including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, CNN, and the broadcast networks—are making increasing effort to discuss climate change, but they still generally fail to help readers and viewers understand the links between economic growth and environmental breakdown; instead, we are all encouraged to believe that the economy can continue to grow forever while technological miracles somehow rescue the polar bears.

Then there’s deliberate disinformation—which is being raised to a high art. Was the coronavirus deliberately created as a bio-weapon? Is the pandemic a hoax? Do Democratic politicians keep young children as sex slaves and harvest their organs? Did Vladimir Putin place Donald Trump in office so as to undermine the United States politically and economically? Are the oil companies suppressing free-energy technologies? Do vaccines cause autism? Did Democrats steal the recent election by hacking Dominion voting machines? If you spend a lot of time on social media, you could be forgiven for believing any of these things. One or two of them might even be partly true—but the relevant facts will be ignored by millions of Americans who have already been convinced by evidence-free assertions flowing freely on Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms. And for those who want evidence, there are now convincing digital ways of faking it.

We humans are inclined to believe things that we want to be true. That’s always been the case; it’s just our nature. But, during the past four years, we’ve had a full-time disinformant as President. And that has seriously corroded our collective ability to think straight. People also want to believe things that relieve them of cognitive dissonance. Even if the “answer” isn’t one they like, it is appealing to have an answer, any answer, for why things are the way they are or for what should be done, rather than live with the messy ambiguity of complex issues with no simple solutions.

When those who follow mainstream media are misinformed on our most critical survival issues, and those who follow alternative media are largely disinformed, social cohesion and governability get stretched thin. And without social cohesion and governability, the prospects for minimizing casualties grow dim.

Can Governability Be Conserved?

What will the trends toward political polarization and radicalization in the US lead to? In the worst instance, a violent breakup of the federal system into competing regional polities and economies. In the best imaginable case, crisis leading to a cathartic renewal. The most likely outcome: elements of both.

Renewal, if it’s to occur, might have to start with the two political parties. Both are at evolutionary dead ends. The Democratic Party was once the party of wage laborers and union members, as well as southern whites; now it is dominated by highly educated coastal elites in alliance with ethnic minorities. Republicans have long been the party of big business, but lately their leaders have learned how to appeal to the less-educated rural and evangelical populace by harping on hot-button issues like abortion and gun rights, while continuing to benefit the super-rich by cutting taxes and gutting financial and environmental regulations. Democratic voters come disproportionately from high-density communities, and Republican voters from low-density communities, with battlegrounds typically located in medium-density suburbs. Trump has been brilliant at tapping into anti-elite and anti-establishment sentiment among less-educated, economically insecure whites who have been left behind by neoliberal, globalist-oriented economic policies embraced by the Democratic Party. Neither party is equipped to reach across the divides that separate Americans, and the political system is set up to make it nearly impossible for a third party to take root.

President-elect Biden is at least making an effort toward reconciliation by promising to be a leader not just of blue states, but the United States. But a third of Americans will be unwilling to grant him the opportunity. Superficial gestures toward healing will be insufficient. Genuine social catharsis is called for, as well as something along the lines of a Rural New Deal.

This is the part of the essay where the author knowingly offers guidance toward a collectively desired outcome. In this case, that’s exceedingly difficult. My guess is that, over the coming years, the nation will be shaken to its foundations. And those foundations, resting as much on genocide and slavery as on democracy and freedom, may not hold. What to do during such a time of upheaval?

I intend to hold fast to my goal of trying to minimize casualties. That requires maintaining social cohesion, which in turn means steering clear of demonization and rumor-mongering. If you share my goal, I suggest you avoid the temptation to start fires or dance on your enemies’ graves. Push yourself to step out of the confirmation bias bubble we all tend to slip into, so as to hear what others are saying and why. Push yourself and others in your circles to avoid making blanket judgements about people with different political or cultural beliefs. If you’re in a community where this is possible, consider hosting a People’s Supper (you can even do this virtually): these have brought together 10,000 people from different backgrounds and viewpoints in more than 100 communities across the US since 2017.

Remember that we are all just frightened animals trying to survive. Help those in need. Be a good neighbor. Educate, don’t disinform. And take care.

    Heinberg hates Trump but loves Pelosi. The latter is the one who has prohibited any kind of economic relief to destitute people and businesses;  instead, he just talks about a generic “Congress.”  That is typical of the Left.  Richard mentions a “robust stimulus bill,” which means paying off grotesquely wasteful states and their unions who have wrecked their budgets.  Budget balancing is out of style nowadays, and has been for a long time.  Rich wants to continue the practice of squandering everything on union bribers.  So-called “safety-net spending programs” are little more than kickbacks to bigsalary-dependent bureaucrats and Mafia-type henchmen backing the freebie-promoting Democrats.  And by the way, the “big Republican donors” are thin on the ground nowadays.

    Heinberg is correct about the global limits to growth which was first forecast half a century ago.  But, like Rahm Emmanuel and many political fat cats after him, Rich is hoping to use the impending disaster to import Communism (under a different name, of course).  He ignores the political reality of what America is and what America does.

    The United States is dedicated to the termination of 4.5 billion years of evolution, starting with the genocide of the White race.  Mr. HolyMan, Ahab Lincoln, was determined to destroy the White Whale and replace him with godly Negroids.  So he mass-murdered ~800,000 Whites in his attempt.  Later, the U.S. attacked Germany, killing millions of Whites there, afterwards claiming that it was all God’s will and that Yankeeland had “saved civilization.”  Of course, they put an exclamation point to that vast slaughter with genocidal nuclear blasts to subjugate another high civilization, Japan.  Anything to put a stop to Nature and her advance.

    Those crimes were followed by the nuclear pollution of the Pacific Ocean by umpteen thermonuclear tests, prompting the USSR to imitate the U.S., using the arctic for their bomb testing-and-radiation dumping ground.  Later, other countries followed suit in their R&D of the globe-killing weapons.

    To advance the American economy, single-use plastics and all sorts of other pollutants were invented and spread, through sale or copying, over the entire earth.  Today the planet is facing death because of America.

    And the cancer is not the fault of the one party that Heinberg hates.  It is the unspoken agreement of both parties to end evolution.  The sayings of a mentally defective, 16-year-old Swedish brat before the U.N. are basically true, even if mouthed by a female marionette operated by billionaire strings.  We have very, very little time left to change before everything spirals out of control.

    Of course Heinberg, like a good Lefty, claims that everything should be settled amicably, that we should all “come together” (under Harris and Biden, of course), give the lower races all of Whitey’s wealth to equalize them, and have them increase and multiply while White civilization gives way to a planet of the apes.  In reality the Davos elites need to be toppled from their thrones, and at least the lower two thirds of the global population eliminated.  But that will not happen, because the American elite want to eliminate only that fraction that is White.  So the future looks grim indeed.

    Because of the U.S.

  7. Antius on Sun, 22nd Nov 2020 1:40 am 

    Heinberg comes across as an amateur on the energy patch. Well intentioned, but lacking in depth knowledge of what is going on. He is a sociologist by training, so lacks a firm grounding in hard science and engineering. Politically, he comes across as being extremely naive.

    He talks about the obvious damage unleashed by climate change and alludes to wild fires as proof of this, ignoring the fact that these had more to do with poor forestry practices than rising temperatures. The damage unleashed by flooding have more to do with rising population on coasts and on flood plains than they do to changing weather patterns.

    That is not to say that climate change isn’t something that we should be concerned about, but it should be discussed without sophistry.

  8. Abraham van Helsing on Sun, 22nd Nov 2020 1:45 am 

    “Trump & Co. can nevertheless salt the earth with disinformation and with resentment among the Republican voting base, making it impossible for the incoming Biden team to accomplish much. Claims of election fraudulence may prove highly effective to that end: up to 70 percent of Republicans apparently think the vote was hacked by Democrats… we may be headed toward a depression the likes of which hasn’t been seen in nearly a century.”

    Exactly so. Covid is a white nationalist dream coming true, with a little luck. Not that Heinberg has any white nationalist motivations.

    “Due in part to the fact that some of the world’s best petroleum resources happened to be located in the US, Americans ended up being the top beneficiaries of the most powerful wealth-generating mechanism in human history.”

    And geopolitical success came with it. Forget fighting “evil Hitler”, that was never the real motive. The American Empire was no “accidental empire”, but intentional… because they could. Global GDP distribution 1940, thanks to oil:

    USA 29%
    USSR 13%
    British Empire 11%
    Germany 11%
    Japan 6%
    France 5%

    These figures say it all. The Americans and Soviets had oil and gas, the Europeans hardly. All the Americans needed to do was set up Europe for war and use the UK and Poland as useful idiots for American interests. The Americans not just wanted to conquer Germany, they wanted to topple the British Empire as well, a fact that is studiously ignored by the British until today, so they can book themselves as “winners of WW2”, where in geopolitical terms they were the biggest loser of them all and were toppled from planetary pole position by their “allies”. And in 2020 the woke destruction of Britain has yet to begin in earnest, where the monkeys are standing by to take over. Obviously Heinberg would reject such an interpretation of history. He is a secular Christian, ready to turn the other cheek to every biped posing as a victim of “white supremacy”.

    “Turchin has been warning for almost a decade that the US is, by all the measures he studies, approaching such a crisis. He says the next five years are likely to see political violence on a scale that America has not witnessed in decades. As if on cue, groups of mostly young men appear to be prepping for bloodshed. The far right has generated an array of such groups, including The Proud Boys, The Base, Oath Keepers, The Missouri Militia, and many others, with varying priorities and strategies. Armed groups on the left appear to be far less numerous (though minorities, women, and anti-gun supporters are buying guns), the main example being Antifa, which is comprised of autonomous groups and individuals seeking to combat fascists and racists using both nonviolent and violent direct action.”

    Heinberg is a leftist and de facto globalist material, regardless how much he professes localism and chooses to ignore that in the run up to the elections, it were Antifa and BLM doing most of the violence. Heinberg loves to imagine that “racism” is evil, rather than a fact of life, that explains almost all wars in history. “Humanity” is merely an abstraction, in reality you competing ethnic-religeous groups, who have an ancienity of centuries if not millennia and who all have a “preference for their own kind” and only in the best case can forge temporary alliances with other groups, usually directed against other alliances.

    US oligarchs for a few decades could hope that they could own entire “humanity” and put it in their kosher pockets, but that turns out to be a bridge too farm thank God. As we speak, the Chinese are consolidating their power by forging a trade alliance of 2.2 billion people, including 2 out of 5 Five Eyes. Difficult to see how Anglosphere could ever make inroads into that constellation.

    On the other end of Eurasia, France is preparing to make its classic Gaullist move, away from Anglosphere and the West, towards Russia, dividing Eurasia into 2 giant power blocks, who not necessarily need to be each other’s enemies, because both blocks have trade surpluses that could absorb each other.

    Heinberg is a legend the most informed and highly regarded expert on peak oil and it’s ramifications I concur with every thing he says .

  10. 2pac on Sun, 22nd Nov 2020 3:12 am 

    The good thing about heindberg is he hasn”t changed his tune after all these years and sticks to his principals concerning peak oil unlike Kunstler who sold his soul to go to the dark side joining the cultists maga church and is moving away from peak oil topics now just spewing conspiracy theories rigged elections. Lol

  14. Lyapunov on Sun, 22nd Nov 2020 5:24 am 

    There is a need to express what is happening in 2020 in a structural dynamic way. Social polarity is destroying honest science. Heinberg is being Manichean here and risks delving in the same elements of the dark side he is against. 2020 is a departure period or a positive Lyapunov exponent. I would caution the resilience movement of losing itself in binary politics. As an old fashion liberal, I am very uncomfortable with modern liberalism and its revolutionary stances. There is science denial with solutions and unscientific political inspired behavior all because of the feeling of profound importance of the message of transition to save humanity and the planet.

    If one accepts failure then it is apparent with honest science the planet is tipped and negatively feeding back in uncontrollable change in regards to the stability of the Holocene. Human forcing is now overtaken by planetary forcing meaning human geoengineering and social green programing will likley fail. In regards to civilization there is in the end game of corruption of the elites on both sides within an ecosystem of social succession. In this case it is a global delocalized world in dramatic overshoot of population and consumption going dysfunctional. This means a revolution and a civil war will be much more destructive because of delocalization. In 2020 divergence is dramatic and increasingly exponential. This is increasingly self-fulfilling and self-organizing as irrationality often is. As a science respecting earth loving liberal at least self-examine behaviors and emotions. Even the brightest allow emotions to overtake objectivity.

    “America in November 2020: a Structural-Demographic View from Alpha Centauri”
    http://peterturchin.com/cliodynamica/america-in-november-2020-a-structural-demographic-view-from-alpha-centauri/

    “structural-demographic theorists distinguish between two causes of revolutions and civil wars: structural trends, which build slowly and are quite predictable, and much less predictable, or even unpredictable, triggering events. In this view, a revolution is like an earthquake or a forest fire. As Mao once wrote, “a single spark can start a prairie fire.” A fire needs fuel—dead plant material—which accumulates gradually as plants die and fall down. But what it needs to start is a spark—somebody throwing away a careless match, or a lighting strike coming from the sky… Each side sees the world in Manichean terms and increasingly endorses violence as the necessary means to prevent the other side from staying in, or coming to power. As a result, we are in an extremely fragile state, which in technical terms is known as the revolutionary situation. What comes next—in November and in the months ahead? In dynamic systems terms, we are on the cusp with a highly positive Lyapunov exponent. What it means in English is that, unless there is a clean win, we will be in situation where possible trajectories start diverging dramatically. All kinds of outcomes become possible, even ones that seem outlandish right now, such as American Civil War II. Many social scientists, who study civil wars and revolutions, don’t believe that a civil war here is likely. They look at the current wave of violence and don’t see how it could escalate to a civil war—the United States has a strong and well-armed police force that can easily put down any popular insurrection. But this view misses an important point: successful revolutions rarely result from the revolt of the masses. The most important factor is the divisions at the top, with dissident elites mobilizing the masses to advance their political agendas.”

    Manichean – vocabulary.com
    To be Manichean is to follow the philosophy of Manichaeism, which is an old religion that breaks everything down into good or evil. It also means “duality,” so if your thinking is Manichean, you see things in black and white. When you see Manichean, think “two.”

    Lyapunov exponent – wiki
    In mathematics the Lyapunov exponent or Lyapunov characteristic exponent of a dynamical system is a quantity that characterizes the rate of separation of infinitesimally close trajectories… there is a spectrum of Lyapunov exponents—equal in number to the dimensionality of the phase space. It is common to refer to the largest one as the Maximal Lyapunov exponent (MLE), because it determines a notion of predictability for a dynamical system. A positive MLE is usually taken as an indication that the system is chaotic…initial separation vector will typically contain some component in the direction associated with the MLE, and because of the exponential growth rate, the effect of the other exponents will be obliterated over time.

    When is a perfect oval evidence of vote fraud?
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/11/when_is_a_perfect_oval_evidence_of_vote_fraud.html#ixzz6eWS1XqA5

    “In the video we have a team of sales and demo experts (Dr. Eric Coomer, Waldeep Singh, David Marino, CEO John Poulos and other support staff) “…to outline new voting equipment options in Chicago on April 13, 2017.” This was the 4th of four election equipment videos and had a few items of note that I haven’t heard or read anywhere before and I wanted to share those with you…First, let’s talk about the elephant in the room, Dr. Eric Coomer. Recognize that name? In this video, Coomer comes across as a consummate professional, knowing hundreds of thousands of dollars are on the line…As he walks through his measured and informational demo, you would never know the alleged radical and hateful conservative contempt kicking around in the back of his head. So rather than dismiss Mr. Coomer outright, let me present some information that has been hiding in plain sight in what is otherwise an unremarkable video…The presentation takes an interesting turn when Dr. Coomer presents the Imagecast Evolution Ballot Marking Device (BMD) at the 15:00 mark. It functions as an all- in-one (votes, tabulates, and prints the ballot) and Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) solution as well. ADA voters get a blank ballot to insert and the voter can use any ADA compliant input device attached to the unit or use the device itself. An internal printer marks the ballot for the voter and directly deposits into the ballot collection box…A library of different random marks to avoid a ballot appearing differently from hand marked ballots becomes more critical considering the next segment of his presentation. In other words, their system prints electronically cast ballots that cannot be differentiated from a hand marked ballot…As recently as September of this year, a fascinating article was published in the Election Law Journal Volume 19, Number 3…Voters can make mistakes in expressing their intent in either technology, but only BMDs are also subject to hacking, bugs, and misconfiguration of the software that prints the marked ballots. Most voters do not review BMD-printed ballots, and those who do often fail to notice when the printed vote is not what they expressed on the touchscreen. Furthermore, there is no action a voter can take to demonstrate to election officials that a BMD altered their expressed votes, nor is there a corrective action that election officials can take if notified by voters—there is no way to deter, contain, or correct computer hacking in BMDs. These are the essential security flaws of BMDs. Risk-limiting audits can ensure that the votes recorded on paper ballots are tabulated correctly, but no audit can ensure that the votes on paper are the ones expressed by the voter on a touchscreen: Elections conducted on current BMDs cannot be confirmed by audits. We identify two properties of voting systems, contestability and defensibility, necessary for audits to confirm election outcomes. No available BMD certified by the Election Assistance Commission is contestable or defensible. There is a double-edged sword to technology that mimics hand marking for the sake of anonymity. I am terribly curious to hear if any ballots in the statistically impossible contested ballot dumps have perfect standard oval marks where Dominion’s library of hand marks was used? Could the thieves have outsmarted themselves? Were the adjudicators relying solely on Dominion’s adjudication ballot recognition software that fails to detect anomalies while rushing through ballot images too fast to tell anything was amiss? Can Dominion’s software correctly distinguish fraudulent ballots that are too perfect? All in the name of voter anonymity. Are we certain the fraud is not anonymous as well? Time will tell.”

    “Understanding the left’s plan for a ‘Great Reset’”

    “Once the majority of people are dependent on the government, it’s time for “The Great Reset.” There’s even a website, to which Antonio Chavez, who drew the parody image that graces this post, introduced me. A video at the site explains what’s going on: The Wuhan virus has been a useful pause in the way we’ve abused the world. (National Geographic was one of many sites suggesting that decreased pollution during the lockdown should “inspire us to do better.”) “We now have an opportunity to use our influence for society and the planet’s best interest,” intones a heavily accented Cockney voice. And then comes that word BLM activists threw around: It’s time to “reimagine” society. The “reset” concept is the brainchild of two men: Klaus Schwab (an engineer who is eerily like Auric Goldfinger) and Thierry Malleret (a futurist journalist). At the World Economic Forum, they joined with some of the world’s wealthiest (and often least savory, useful, or moral) people to discuss a better way to control the rest of the world – all for the little people’s benefit, of course, and with those assembled providing the world’s leadership . . . that is, when they’re not eating caviar and drinking fine wines. Stripped of its fancy trappings, the Great Reset is simple: Socialism, sold as the answer to apocalyptic climate change. In this brave new world, there will be no pollution, no climate destruction, and no private property (although one gets the feeling that the movement’s advocates, people like Prince Charles, will keep their stuff). Overpopulation will also end (although, again, I’m betting that the nomenklatura will keep their procreative rights). At bottom, the only thing that will distinguish this Brave New reset world from the Middle Ages, given that the ultimate plan is to roll back the industrial era, will be that what little energy is still produced will be used for computers to control us. Otherwise, the world will be home to absolute monarchs and serfs. Stripped of its cult-like language, the Reset is a typical leftist Utopian project. As with all such projects, it will fail – but not before the world first welters in blood, pain, and death. We’d better hope Trump really released the Kraken, or else there are ugly times ahead.”

    dear dratrepus tak
    i can’t thank you enough for showing me bitchute. i enjoy learning about muzz-19 and convict-19 from whitey supertard president Brian aka HighImpactFlix very much. Even though he speaks low english and us academics would consider them untouchables, i really enjoying learning from him

    my journey into low english is very difficult but i’m learning from books i purchased off amazon and elsewhere

    low english is very nuanced and factual. for exampel “muzzie died like a dog” is how whitey supertard president trump said and i agreed because dog is regarded as dirty in muzzie culture. so a muzzie carcass is a mess so it’s similar to a dog

    high english is for muzzie lovin
    i begin to understand the differences. i aim to be well rounded in my education because college accepts students who are well rounded in and i should be too. well rounded means mastering both low and high english

    ps: i hope you are able to purchase a LIB URN but there are others like me still bulk purchasing it so i’m not very optimistic that you will

    sincerely

    Heinberg is becoming more moronically ingrained in Democrat talking points as time goes by.

    There is no independent or critical thinking going on here, just childish political zealousness.

    Collapse will certainly occur, but Heinberg’s rhetoric will be irrelevant in the public’s interpretation of it.

Did Vladimir Putin place Donald Trump in office so as to undermine the United States politically and economically? Are the oil companies suppressing free-energy technologies? Do vaccines cause autism? Did Democrats steal the recent election by hacking Dominion voting machines? “

    In the Drop and roll technique, they shut the voting down, calculate what they need, then drop a batch in to “Catch up”. After that they roll out for example, 53 batches in a row and each batch measures exactly 51.2% for Biden and 48.8% for Trump and they roll that difference forward. All this will be released tomorrow.

    The five cities where the deep cheating went on: Atlanta, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Detroit, and Maracopa County, Arizona. They hide behind black regions so then they will call you a racist if you question it.
