Countdown to Oligarchy

Updated June 27, 2021.

Those who view American politics as a contest between presidential personalities and a conflict between opposing political parties are missing the bigger picture. The division of power - and thus the battle - is between the ruling elite and the American people. While government is always organized as a top-down enterprise of centralized power, the aggregation of government power has visibly increased in recent years.

America began to transition from a Constitutional Republic to oligarchic rule quite a number of years ago. A reasonable marker for the noticeable beginning of this transition was the start of the Obama regime.

The 2020 election was in a very tangible sense America's Color Revolution, ushering in corporatism masquerading as democracy, or more realistically, as socialism. The Democrat party, aided and abetted by big tech censorship and mainstream media bias, today serves America's governing oligarchy. And in turn, the oligarchy supports the Democrat party because it protects their interests.

Socialism and corporatism gravitate toward centralized control: more government, not less government. More social and economic constraints, not less.

Here are some of the measures that may very well be implemented to cement oligarchic rule in America. These measures weren't pulled out of thin air; see Biden - Harris positions on key issues and Comparing Presidential Candidates.

Let's see how many of these measures are implemented by the Biden Harris regime in the next two, and the next four years.

  1. Co-opt America's educational system so as to de-emphasize American values and history and instead, teach socialist values. This was accomplished a generation ago. See Engineered Ignorance in Education, by Tom Shuford, February 8, 2020, and The Revolution in Minnesota’s Schools, by Katherine Kersten, Center of the American Experiment, January 21, 2021.
  2. Destroy the vibrant Trump economy. Shutdown the economy purportedly because of the China virus. Kill off small businesses, the owners of which vote Republican. Make the public dependent on government handouts in order to survive the crisis by giving people back some of their own money. Done.
  3. Condone and encourage leftist mainstream media and big tech censorship. Done.
  4. Condone and encourage censorship and financial deplatforming of conservatives. Underway. See Democrats Outsource Political Repression to Corporate Monopolies, by Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag, January 18, 2021.
  5. Erase the face. Mandate public asocial distancing and wearing of porous cloth masks (as opposed to fitted N95 masks). This discourages social interaction and conditions the public to subservience. Done.
  6. Mandate vaccinations in order to maintain social credit, travel by air, and to obtain employment, thus facilitating control and tracking of the masses. See Video: Naomi Wolf sounds alarm on Vaccine passports.
  7. Steal the election - done. Change voting rules in violation of some state Constitutions. Fake ballots, ballot dumping, and switching votes were all used in a death by a thousand cuts to ensure that the Democrat candidates won. See Ballot busting.
  8. Impeach President Trump and convict in order that he will not be permitted to run again in 2024. Impeached, but not convicted in the Senate. See Why They Hate Trump So Deeply, by Jacob G. Hornberger, Ron Paul Institute, January 17, 2021. See: Democrat-Led House Passes H.R.1 - a blatant power grab, March 4, 2021.
  9. Institutionalize the mechanisms of election fraud so that a Republican can never win office again, possibly via national election standards legislation. See: When Thieves Seek a Lock on Power: The Democrat Election Fraud Act, by Vasko Kohlmayer, Lew Rockwell, January 25, 2021. See: Democrat-Led House Passes H.R.1 - a blatant power grab, March 4, 2021.
  10. Reinstate the DACA program, generating more Democrat voters.
  11. Amnesty the 22 million or more illegal aliens in America. Illegal aliens vote primarily Democrat. See Biden’'s Immigration Plan Will Fundamentally Change America. See: Biden Regime Amnesty Would Import California-Size Foreign Population. March 4, 2021. 
  12. Implement an open border policy - that is, greatly increase the number of legal immigrants, illegal aliens, and refugees allowed into America. In process. See Population Driven to Double by Mass Immigration and Biden Regime Stops Wall Construction, Ends Anti-Fraud Border Program, Breitbart, January 22, 2021. See: Biden Regime Sets 2021 Goal of Welcoming 117,000 Migrant Youths, March 3, 2021.
  13. Fully implement Obamacare / Medicare for all, thus ensuring government control of one-sixth of the United States economy.
  14. Destroy the predominantly conservative suburbs by mandating low-income housing. Low-income individuals tend to vote for the Democrat party which gives them the largest taxpayer-paid handouts. President Biden would enforce the Obama's radical AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) regulation. Biden has embraced Cory Booker’s strategy to end single-family zoning in the suburbs. See excerpts from Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs, by Stanley Kurtz, National Review, July 2, 2020, and Biden’s Infrastructure Bill Aims to End Single-Family Zoning, by Stanley Kurtz, National Review, April 7, 2021.
  15. Nullify the Second Amendment. Firearms are associated with red states and with conservative voters. Outlawing guns is a way to criminalize and control the conservative American demographic which resists oligarchy.
  16. Implement a variant of the Green New Deal in order to further government control over the economy. Transition America out of the oil industry. See Biden Reportedly Putting Keystone Pipeline on the Chopping Block on Day One, by Bronson Stocking, Townhall, January 17, 2021.
  17. Pass a Patriot Act II that declares MAGA a domestic terror organization. See Prepare for the new “Domestic Terrorism Bill” The Patriot Act 2 is on the way, from the same author behind the smash-hit original, by Kit Knightly, Off Guardian, January 8, 2021.
  18. Grant the District of Columbia and Purto Rico statehood. This would effectively stack the Senate with Democrat senators. See 22 Republican State Attorneys General Argue Congress Making D.C. a State Is Unconstitutional, Breitbart, April 13, 2021.
  19. Pack the Supreme Court - that is, expand the court and appoint leftist justices.
  20. Abolish the Electoral College in order to elect the President via direct popular vote. See The Importance of the Electoral College, and Dem Lawmaker Introduces Resolution To 'Abolish' Electoral College: How Would It Be Done?, Zero Hedge, January 13, 2021. House Democrats Introduce Resolution to ABOLISH ELECTORAL COLLEGE, Geller Report, April 15, 2021.
  21. Reverse President Trump's order so that illegal aliens will now be included in census numbers used to decide how many lawmakers represent each state in Congress. Done on Biden's first day in office.
  22. Eliminate the Senate Filibuster. See Ruling opens door for Democrats to pass $2.2T Biden spending bill with just 50 votes - Democrats can now move the bill through the Senate without a single GOP vote, and The Democrats’ Filibuster Con, Daily Signal, June 11, 2021. Alternate view: Who Will Benefit Long-Term from Ending the Filibuster? Eliminating the Senate procedure could be a key step in dismantling the progressive administrative state, American Greatness, June 26, 2021.

As the above measures are implemented, America will further transition from a Consitutional Republic to oligarchic rulership and totalitarianism. Hang on to your hats - it's going to be an interesting ride.

The New Oligarchs Will Not Tolerate Secession, by Edward J. Erler, American mind, December 16, 2020:

America has not been a constitutional republic based on the consent of the governed for many years. It has, in fact, been a thinly disguised oligarchy, dominated by ruling class elites in the media, in academia, both political parties in government (where politicians freely make promises to voters but find it easy to evade and ignore), the bureaucracy, the deep state (including the intelligence agencies), corporations, Silicon Valley, and other centers of influence....

Oligarchy is not a permanent; it too is subject to regime change. It can become a democracy, or it can become a tyranny if one or a small segment of the oligarchs becomes predominant in wealth and power. In the near future, the latter prospect is most likely.

One Circus Is Over as the Next Begins: Hence, Unabated Tyranny Will Continue, by Gary D. Barnett, Lew Rockwell, January 8, 2021

Government by design is structured as a top down system of class, with the common people always being at the bottom of the hierarchy.... Never in the history of this country have so many been controlled by so few, all with only a modicum of resistance....

What has happened to date has set the stage for extreme totalitarian rule. Those of us willing to speak out and disobey any government orders have now been put on notice that we are the enemies of the state....

It is imperative to understand that none of this is accidental or natural, it is the result of long-term planning, all purposely designed and implemented as a strategy meant to create and sustain a “Great Reset;” a complete restructuring of all economic and monetary systems worldwide with the singular goal of global dominance by the few....

It's Been Morphed into a "Democracy" So What Else Would You Expect?, by L. Reichard White, January 9, 2021:

In a nutshell, the difference is that in a Republic the minions retained to operate the machinery are bound by a strict set of theoretically unbreakable rules while in a democracy they have excuses to do whatever they want to do — or are campaign-bribed and lobbied to do.... At that point as Samuel Clemens observed long ago, “No man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”

Censorship is Now the Norm – Free Speech is Officially Gone, Armstrong Economics, January 8, 2021.

Democrats Outsource Political Repression to Corporate Monopolies, by Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag, January 18, 2021:

Democrats love public-private partnerships and they outsourced political repression to the private sector. The Constitution has inconvenient things to say about freedom of speech and so the Democrat government of elected and unelected officials outsourced the problem of censoring and suppressing speech to the handful of Big Tech monopolies of the internet.

That same old document written by old white dead men, not to mention centuries of jurisprudence and tradition, prevents the government from kicking down your door in the middle of the night for wrongthink. But nothing keeps corporations from firing you for wrongthink, for being related to someone who committed wrongthink, or for insufficient political correctness.

US Capitol Protest: Ruling Class Tantrum Shows Americans We Must All Hang Together, by James Kirkpatrick, VDare, January 9, 2021:

Where others see despair, I see a crucible, something that will pave the way for a true national rebirth. We are the heirs of those who endured Valley Forge. Greatness can emerge only from struggle.

With its absurd talk of “insurrection” and ludicrously obvious double standards, the Ruling Class has designated tens of millions of deplorables as something less than citizens, people outside respectable society.

It’s a mistake. Our rulers need us. We don’t need them....

But in the end, no matter what we do, millions of Americans are about to feel the iron boot of repression... Nevertheless, my guess is a lot of us are going to look at each other, as American patriots did after George III responded to their Olive Branch Petition by declaring them traitors subject to the death penalty, and conclude that whatever our differences, “Now we will all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.” (See Benjamin Franklin in the clip.)...


What Experts on Extremism Want From the Biden Administration By James D. Walsh, NYMAG, January 8, 2021:

Jake Sullivan, Biden’s choice for national security adviser, has said the president-elect asked him to “reimagine national security” to include “threats to democracy, racial justice, and inequality in all forms.”

Why They Hate Trump So Deeply, by Jacob G. Hornberger, Ron Paul Institute, January 17, 2021:

Would you like to know the real reason for the deep, unfathomable, uncontrollable hatred and rage that these people have for Donald Trump?

It is acceptable practice for any politician and bureaucrat to criticize things that happen within the Washington, D.C., sandbox in which these people play. But woe to the politician or bureaucrat who challenges the sandbox itself. He is toast... No president since John Kennedy has dared to do that.

Trump had committed the mortal sin of any national-security state — he had questioned the system itself. He had to go. They have to send a message that this type of thing will never be permitted again....

Welcome to West China, by Roger L. Simon, Epoch Times, January 8, 2021.

And Occam’s Razor tells me the United States is turning into a near clone of the People’s Republic of China.

That’s not communism in the traditional sense. Karl Marx wouldn’t recognize it, not that what he had on offer was any better. For China, the word communism is a kind of paleo-virtue signaling.

What China actually is (and where the United States is headed or has already arrived) is a form of oligarchic fascism. The capitalist market’s fine as long as it’s my capitalist market and you’re a member of my party.

Communist Party, Democratic Party, what difference does it make? As long as it’s ONE PARTY. And we’re in charge. The state über alles.

So forget about personal liberty and free expression and brush up your “social credit score.” Learn to be obedient, if you wish to survive.

The Fall of The Republic...?The Rise of The Oligarchy, by Ray DiLorenzo, Canada Free Press, January 23, 2021:

Whether Big Media, academia, large corporations, and Biden supporters are aware of their future is unclear. Many, for the time being, seem to be falling in line. They are voluntarily complying. This is evident by announcements of their refusal to do business with those that do not cooperate with the new political order. Democrats have announced a new war on domestic terrorism. Sounds good until you realize the enemy are all those Trump supporters. Liberals are demanding deprogramming of conservatives. It makes further central government directives unnecessary. They have created the hate, and it has blossomed. Many on the left have not understood that their progressivism was a required prerequisite for what is to come. It is only a minor turn for what Democrats and the CCP are planning…a totalitarian, secular, socialist society using political, social, and financial coercion within a new world order of which China will be pre-eminent....

What Is Fascism? It's the System We've Been Living under for Decades. by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.,, January 18, 2021:

Fascism is the system of government that cartelizes the private sector, centrally plans the economy to subsidize producers, exalts the police state as the source of order, denies fundamental rights and liberties to individuals, and makes the executive state the unlimited master of society.

This describes mainstream politics in America today. And not just in America. It’s true in Europe, too. It is so much part of the mainstream that it is hardly noticed anymore....
