The first rule of screenwriting, or in fact any fiction writing, is, “Conflict doesn’t create character, it reveals it.” People are who they are and we only find out what they are made of when tested to their limit.
This is the essence of all good storytelling — create characters who rise to be role models for us as we navigate our way through a Universe hostile to our very existence.
While I hesitate to ascribe such noble ideas as ‘character’ to any politician there are a few out there who have shown great potential. I’ve written about all of them at various times in the past few years.
Matteo Salvini in Italy, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Russian President Vladmir Putin, Nigel Farage in the UK and even a flawed figure like Donald Trump are all examples of men who history will remember as having stood up when needed.
At times each of them tried to move heaven and earth to stop the degradation of society, culture and the human condition in the face of an implacable enemy – communist ideologues bent on forcing humanity into submission to their will.
But with the Supreme Court abdicating its primary responsibility under the Constitution last week citing itself in an unconstitutional ruling from 1925 (H/T Martin Armstrong for this) means it is over for Trump and the U.S. to stop the final transformation of the U.S. into an oligarchy in reality if not in spirit.
There is no mechanism for states to redress grievances of any import now. What was left of the compact between equal sovereign states died with a whimper in the halls of the SCOTUS and to thunderous applause by the BlueCheckMarked Sneetches on Twitter.
This means that a stolen election will in all probability stand up come Inauguration Day. The entrenched oligarchy has won this round.
Fine. But it doesn’t mean the efforts of the men I just listed will have been in vain. In fact, quite the opposite.
Because what it has done is revealed the character of everyone involved. What they do next now that they have the power they’ve always craved to transform America will determine what people who have principles other than raw power will do.
We’re beginning to see that response form up. This election isn’t over but the positioning for the future a post-republic America has already begun.
Since election day Tulsi Gabbard, a tweener between Gen-X and a Millennial, has been a non-stop source of, admittedly, Quixotic bills to put paid her insurgent campaign in the Democratic primaries as someone interested in fixing real foundational problems with the country and the bipartisan corruption in Washington.
She continues to reach across party lines introducing legislation which form the basis for a populist election strategy targeting the 2022 and 2024 elections.
From whistleblower protection to repealing Section 230 of the CDA to the bill in the tweet above co-sponsored with libertarian Thomas Massie, Gabbard is an example of what the future holds for the political future once this meta-stable, oligarchic rule-by-men period of America is over.
It’s clear that Gabbard wants no part of being a part of the Democratic Party that’s in power now. That’s why she didn’t run for re-election and I suspect these moves are all laying the groundwork for a return to politics in 2024 as an independent or Sanders-like outsider.
I’ve been writing for years now that our problems stem from an unwillingness of the older generations of politicians to give up power. If anything, they persist because they are owned by the forces that put them there in the first place to pull off this betrayal of the people that has been in the works for decades.
And they will stay in place until they are no longer needed. Just ask Diane Feinstein who is now being sacrificed to make way for the transition team to finish the job she started.
I always saw Trump as Gen-X’s moment to pull a Ronald Reagan and say, “Mr. Trump, tear down this Swamp!” but the real story is that Gen-X is allowing Obama to do that tearing down and hand what’s left back to the old monied elites.
The fight now is between the cross-currents within Gen-X. Equal parts commie and libertarian the one uniting principle is a desire to reform the old order.
It is my read that people like Gabbard, Massie, Sen. Rand Paul and a few others see the problem. Gabbard’s a leftist, but she’s no doctrinaire commie. That makes her and interesting pivot figure around which a coalition to retake control or build back better the U.S. can be formed. This will be necessary once Obama’s incoming crew of vandals overreaches and are thrown out on their asses.
Regardless of the outcome in the coming months and years the changing of the guard is close at hand. Post-Trump America will look very different than pre-Trump. Trump was the apotheosis of the Boomers.
His legacy will be forcing the Deep State into the open, bringing the fight against them out of the shadows.
Trump, however, doesn’t represent the future of America. He’s weighed down with the mythology of an America that never really existed.
That mythology, however, is something worth building on not allowing Obama and The Vandals to tear down. I believe Gabbard understands this.
I also believe at least 75 million Americans understand this.
For the American people to not be frog-marched into the dystopian nightmare of Klaus Schwab’s dreams it will be the revealed character of the Gabbards, Massies and Pauls to lead once the violence reaches a crescendo.
Make no mistake, there will be violence. It is inevitable because the people who voted for Trump will not be placated with UBI or settle down as their voices are silenced.
The fraudsters will forever be looking over their shoulders, lashing out at minor opposition as traitors who need to be put down.
Here we are presented with a staged picture with three white privilege guys straight out of central casting for the latest Obama-produced ‘documentary’ on equality coming to Netflix in the spring.
This is your “Unity” agenda from the most statist of state house organs, NPR, the echo chamber of choice for the low-information ‘informed’ shitlib. This is the face of the Biden/Harris administration.
This is just the beginning of what we can look forward to when the GOP loses both seats in the Georgia run-off and the Democrats, despite historically-low support and engagement with actual voters, run the table.
Once ensconced they will persecute their political enemies in ways only Alex Jones has contemplated to this point. And it will be this escalation that will reveal the quality of the character of these next-generation politicians.
They will have the choice, leader of men or cowards. The republic we’ve known is dead. Maybe that’s a good thing. But what comes after won’t be up to the people who just destroyed it. That job is the next generation’s job. Their moment is coming in the next couple of years. They will have to be ready.

Honestly, Tom, I’ve been taking a break from doom pr0n lately, but this is good, thank you.
It ain’t over, not by a long shot. This Pennsylvania political leader explains why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkTyJ3igf1Y&feature=emb_logo (watch before Youtube suppresses it)
Oops: MICHIGAN political leader.
Tom, great work here! I’m trying to access your podcast with Jim Kunstler but it’s the Jim Jatras one (which was really good btw). Been a big fan of Kunstler for years and would love to hear your interview with him.
The USSC could have resolved this in a manner that would have been the least costly. The real lesson from them is that freedom i not free. But if you think screaming b!@ch Roberts has ended the legal fight, you do not know how to fight.
Can’t speak for the others as all I have is reflected news from abroad, but as a born-raised-and-resident Italian I need to correct you on Salvini – he’s a clown who will always follow the money and jump on the most convenient bandwagon. The Lega and all other supposed “opposition” parties have rapidly caved to the mainstream New World Order line, and are now among the main enforcers of this criminal dictatorship. Their fiercest “opposition” these days consists in suggesting that maybe you should be allowed to invite 3 close relatives over for Christmas rather than 2, and that curfew be moved back a half an hour. Had he and Meloni actually stood up to this criminal plot, they’d be at 65% combined. But evidently that wasn’t worth trying to stand up to our globalist overlords… So instead they’ve gone all-in on the fear party, spewing case numbers, pushing masks, advocating stricter measures and calling for mandatory mass vaccinations.
There will be violence? As if violence hasn’t been an integral part of the Human government from the Beginning. The People run rule of Law Courts will ‘slaughter’ the Innocent in a heartbeat to keep Their Delusions alive. They profess to be Shepherds, Leaders of the Flock ,but in Reality they are Nothing but Hirelings. They have no concern for the Health and Safety of the Little One’s. Actually, They Despise Humble People, whose personal freedoms were given to Us by Our Creator. This scenario can Only go One Way. To Destruction. But ,that’s neither here nor there to the Humble. We have a Promise that They do Not! Rising up isn’t an option for a Lamb of God, neither is Diplomacy and Compromise. Rome had it’s day. The Germanic Tribes have had their day. The Great and Terrible Day of YHWH is on the Horizon. Go Ye Out to meet Him.
And he said to the human race,
“The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.”
Humility and Gratitude are the 2 most valuable qualities an ego can have.
SLV has it’s trending mojo now, Tom.
A modern day Job is something to be…
There will be militia groups converging on Wash DC 1/4/21 no telling what the outcome, some of us need to stand up for the next generations, the Republic is dying fast now. Maybe already be too late tho’. https://www.brighteon.com/e1779f7a-4030-4a83-969b-4c3c9667b765
How low does your self esteem have to be for you to think that you can vote for someone who is good enough to rule over you?
“Grown men do not need leaders.” – Edward Abbey
Not “rule” but represent — surely you agree that some government is necessary. As is the police. Unless, of course, you are assuming an enlightened population of philosophers and saints. Which, alas, is nowhere to be found.
Extract: ” Gabbard’s a leftist, but she’s no doctrinaire commie. That makes her and interesting pivot figure around which a coalition to retake control or build back better the U.S. can be formed. This will be necessary once Obama’s incoming crew of vandals overreaches and are thrown out on their asses.”
Apparently Tom hasn’t integrated the full meaning of the recent s-election: there will never be another unadulterated vote to permit access to levers of power for reformers like Gabbard or Rand.
Oh i have integrated this outcome into my thinking Moe. But nothing is set in stone. Consider what you quoted and now stop thinking in terms of elections “throwing the vandals out of office”
That’s when a Gabbard/Paul coalition ticket could make a lot of noise.
Blind fools, selecting Blind Liars to represent them. They will All Fall into the ditch. Actually ,maybe not so blind. Willful Deception is a greater evil still. I find myself in Apostle Paul’s shoes of Perils among False Christians.
Make a lotta noise? Who likes Noise. Let Every Man speak the truth to his neighbor. Church Fairy Tales, Fallacies, Greek Jesus, these are not real things. You are All Extremely Delusional.
Yes it could. Interesting idea.
Gabbard should not be trusted.
