The following article, which was submitted to the Hyphen-Report by an average, working-class citizen, is intended as an opinion piece regarding the 2024 U.S Presidential election as well as the ongoing war in Ukraine.
Judging by a lot of conversations I’ve had with everyday people, I’m getting the impression that, on the right, Ron DeSantis is going to be people’s favorite pick for winning the 2024 U.S presidential election. Many people will quickly proclaim that Trump is out, and DeSantis is in, but is this true? Many of these same people also claim that the Ukraine conflict and its unintended consequences in the West (ala high gas prices and inflation woes) will merely end “in a few months.” Well, dear reader, I’ve seen a few months come and go, and Putin recently said that Russia hasn’t even started yet!
This talk always leaves me to consider the future, and I can’t help but think that these two topics are somehow linked.
Let’s start with the war. Russia’s special military operation (AKA: the War in Ukraine) is quite unlike the annexation of Crimea in 2014. For those not paying attention, this is a full-blown war with a death toll of approximately one-hundred-thousand White men. The numbers are hard to calculate precisely, since both sides are pumping numbers for propaganda purposes, and we won’t know the full extent of the casualties for many years. That being said, it’s not ending anytime soon as the United States and NATO are making sure of that. How much aid NATO and the U.S. have given Ukraine is also unclear. Statista shows that from January 24th through May 10th of this year, the U.S. has already given over a whopping 25 billion dollars of aid alone.
On May 9th, President Joe Biden signed the “Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022.” The last time a U.S. president signed a Lend-Lease Act was 1941, and I don’t think anyone reading this needs a refresher on how that worked out for Europe. To put it bluntly, this is not looking good. Anyone still saying the war in Ukraine will be over in a couple of months needs only look at the desperation being displayed by the government, and how easily they seem to roll out dusty old relics like “lend-lease” to keep the wheels of a foreign war spinning. In reality, this new Lend-Lease Act is nothing but a blank check to give Ukraine anything the U.S. wants—or thinks—they need.
To put this into perspective, the U.S donated over 50 billion dollars (equivalent to $690 billion in 2020) worth of supplies to the Soviet Union for its campaigns in the Second World War. By repeating these expensive political actions of the past, the U.S. is signaling to the world that it will spare no expense when it comes to the demand of a power-hungry Western elite. The significance of signing this new Lend-Lease Act cannot be understated.
“Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Well, what can I say? Let them try,” Putin said, according to Reuters…“We have continuously heard that the West is ready to fight with us until the last Ukrainian is left standing. This is a tragedy for the Ukrainian people. However, it seems like everything is going towards this,” he added.
Despite this extravagant show of support from the U.S. and NATO, Russia simply isn’t going to stop. They can’t stop, and even if they could, why would they? Suddenly halting their advances and suing for peace at the behest of a corrupt West would spell disaster for Russia and Putin, who’s worked his life to bring Russia back from economic and cultural ruin since the end of the Cold War. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Russia cannot lose (although the probability of this outcome is highly unlikely) but it does mean that a retreat at this point is off the table. Both the U.S. and Russia are now thoroughly dug into this conflict.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy couldn’t care less how many Ukrainians die because, let’s face it, he’s not Ukrainian. Sure, Zelenskyy may have been born inside the political boundaries of Ukraine, but ethnically, he is thoroughly jewish. Because of this, his true loyalties will always be placed into question and leave those to ponder just how many white men this neo-liberal dictator will send to the killing fields of the Donbas? Unfortunately, the answer is not enough.
The propaganda surrounding this war is frustrating to navigate for someone living outside the conflict, but this is exactly why people should disengage from the propaganda altogether. Unless you are Russian or Ukrainian residing in those places and living the wartime experience, then the propaganda is simply not devised for you.
Citizens of the West are not the only people watching the war from afar. Many nations are watching this charnel house unfold from the safety of their own lands. Ukraine’s resistance against the Russian invasion has morphed into a vicious proxy war of imperial U.S. interests against an increasingly slighted Russia. Meanwhile, China is watching with bated breath to see what U.S. resolve will look like when tested by a nation that is willing to buck the status quo.
When the U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi was told not to interfere in Taiwan, she had to cancel a planned trip to the far eastern power citing warnings of possible military action by the CCP. China is, of course, joined in the spectator seats by many others with national interests of their own. Add the meddling of nations like North Korea and whispers of a more independent Japan to the mix. Suddenly, the entire Asian theater is beginning to look more and more like a bubbling soup of danger on the horizon of contemporary American history.
“China will respond with unprecedented countermeasures – the strongest it has ever taken since the Taiwan Strait crises,” said Shi Yinhong, an international relations professor at China’s Renmin University.
And then there is the Middle East. Iran is well on its way to maturing into a Nuclear power, and the U.S. is no longer in a position to negotiate a new nuclear deal. The Persian state is also set to supply Russia with a fleet of drones, which is sure to provoke a response from the U.S. Tensions between Iran and Israel are also very high due to Israel, once again, being suspected of assassinating Iranian scientists. Russia has also been upgrading Syria’s air defense capabilities for quite some time to thwart Israel’s unprovoked bombings of Syrian cities.
When it comes to this delicate game of geopolitical chess being played out around the glove, Iran, Syria, and China all appear to be firmly in Russia’s corner. The world stage is a veritable powder keg; the only thing keeping the fuse damp is the U.S.’s ability to project its military might abroad. But just how mighty is that military? Let’s set aside hardware and talk about manpower. The U.S. is currently experiencing a drought in recruitment, and branches from across the spectrum are finding that most Americans are ineligible to serve. As a result, not a single branch of the military can currently make its recruitment goal for 2022.
“An internal Defense Department survey obtained by NBC News found that only 9% of those young Americans eligible to serve in the military had any inclination to do so, the lowest number since 2007…“This recruiting crisis is like a slow-moving wave coming at us,” said one senior defense official involved in recruiting and personnel issues. “As the military has gotten smaller and the public have gotten less and less familiar with those in uniform, it has grown. And Covid accelerated it.”
The U.S. Military has also been targeting their recruitment drives specifically for non-whites, women, homosexuals, transexuals, and anyone but the patriotic white men needed to fight and win a hot war. One wonders what percentage of the current military would simply abandon their post and go AWOL in the face of a real conflict? While speculative, I would wager that number to be very high indeed.
A recent video posted on TikTok shows young enlisted of both genders being asked why they joined the Marine Corps. While the answer to a question like this should be easy to answer, only one of the recruits cited “patriotism,” and yes, it was a white male. The others struggled to come up with a reason, instead opting for cheap excuses like “I was bored,” or “for money.” The most common reply was simply “I don’t know.” Not exactly the response you want to hear before you make the order to charge into battle.
All of this brings me back to Trump and the presidential election of 2024. Ron DeSantis can wave his hands like Trump, say things like Trump, and pretend to be Donald Trump, but guess what? He’s not Donald Trump!
DeSantis is still just a two-bit controlled opposition politician riding the coattails of someone who played the game better, but this time there is much more at stake in the world of geopolitics than back in 2016. DeSantis isn’t going to manipulate the spirit of a nation in the same way that Trump did, and if it came to it, he would be powerless to stoke military recruitment in the face of a potential world conflict.
To be frank, he’s not the most inspiring picture of a “commander-in-chief.” He’s just another Republican coat pretending to be something he’s not. While Donald Trump didn’t make many lasting friends with the White people he courted back in 2016, in a way, he did manage to transcend becoming your typical skinsuit politician. The only reason DeSantis is the focus of the media machine right now is that they need him to distract from Trump’s more critical failures.
Get ready to hear about stolen elections and gas prices returning to $2 dollars a gallon. Prepare yourself for talks of curbing inflation. Once again, we’ll be told that the don will fix it guys! We may even see Trump incorporate the political prisoners of January 6th and enchant his base with false promises of clemency in an attempt to shift blame for their misguided actions onto Biden. I predict that this will be one of the most frustrating election cycles that many of us will have the misfortune of enduring.
While it may never come to fruition, the potential for a full-scale war with Russia—made possible by the obstinate bumbling of the Biden regime and his team of bloodthirsty jewish foreign policymakers—is higher than its ever been. Simply put, the U.S. is not ready. If this nightmare scenario were to materialize, America must be able to field much more competent soldiers if boots were to hit the ground.
If elected, Donald Trump might be able to usher in a small, shot-lived wave of false patriotism that could see a spike in military recruitment. But a true solution to the manpower problem could only rest in the form of a national draft. The move would be widely unpopular, of course, but under a second Trump administration, he could be the only one capable of playing the unwitting patsy needed to get something as momentous as a draft passed. Citing Russia’s aggression and national security interests, the United States could tap into its surplus of young, disaffected White men already angry with the system. Coincidentally, the move could solve many of the domestic woes that the system currently faces, killing two birds with one vicious anti-White stone.
Being able to halt the ever-swelling ranks of White nationalist groups like Patriot Front, Proud Boys, and various other right-wing groups deemed taboo by the system by funneling strong White blood into a Western meat grinder would be a godsend for jewish power. Lots of men with good moral character will be forced to face an inconvenient decision: go to prison as a traitor or be fast-tracked to the front lines.
In this terrible turn of events, the U.S. would be able to clean house of all its political rivals in one fell swoop. The system would be forcing us to kneel on its own bloody terms all while saying: “If you can’t beat em, absorb them”
In order for the unjust, American-imposed status quo to survive into the coming decades, the United States needs to put someone at the top that can get away with unpopular acts of government power, especially if it now faces the looming specter of Russian hot war (no matter how fake it might be under the surface.) Donald Trump—not a Floridian nobody like Desantis—would be the perfect dupe to get it done. In the unfortunate event that my armchair politicking is correct, and I hope that I’m not, then this global powderkeg will finally explode, and life is going to get much, much harder.
