We are just over a hundred days into the Biden Administration and already there is a series of “crisis” taking place. Immigration, war in the middle east, a gas shortage, domestic terrorism, cyber-attacks, and a pandemic that was supposed to end after a two-week lockdown that extended to a year and a half in parts of the country. Many of these things have nothing to do with Michael Ruppert’s book Confronting Collapse but considering the recent fuel shortage that has been created by bad policies one should be wondering what is really going on.
A computer hacker group shut down the Colonial Pipeline and within hours a ransom was paid. Before this event, President Biden stopped the construction of the Keystone pipeline while at the same time Governor Whitmer of Michigan placed orders to shut down the Enbridge Pipeline that transports oil from the Upper Peninsula to the lower peninsula of the state. Colonial supplies 30% of the nation’s gasoline, oil, and natural gas to the East coast of the United States pumping 100 million barrels of Gasoline a day. Even with the ransom paid the pipeline did not function for days as gas stations ran out of fuel. As of 5-18-2021 gas stations in the state of Virginia were charging $7 a gallon for gasoline. Add that the pipeline was shut down again and things are not looking good for the nation’s energy independence.
Ruppert’s book argued that peak oil would be the cause of a world wide societal collapse. What he never considered is that it could be a man-made phenomenon and not naturally occurring as he argued. A man named Hubbard theorized that we would reach peak oil around the year 2000. This was the same time that 9-11 happened and a few years later we invaded Iraq. At the time this all appeared to be a US policy to counter peak oil for national security, and maybe it was. Then we started to invest in fracking and a decade later became energy independent and the leading exporter of oil in the world. Within a few weeks into the Biden administration that all changed and now we have $3 a gallon gasoline and several pipelines shut down and fracking banned on federal land where most of it takes place. Peak oil was achieved in the US but it was man made.
Peak oil was not the only concerning aspect of Ruppert’s book and the movie Collapse. There was a map of social unrest and the chaos that would happen during the breakdown of social order. For a while, cities and other smaller governments were shutting down different parts of infrastructure in order to save money. Street lights were turned off, water was no longer available to certain parts of cities, roads were no longer maintained. Then technology stepped in. LED lights started to be installed in street lights and in government builds using a small fraction of traditional light bulbs. But even with the money saving factor of this new technology studies found that cities were using more electricity even with the new lights. Somehow the problem was still not solved.
Riots broke out in 2020 and the nation is still experiencing this in various places. These are not the food riots that were predicted. Instead, this is an artificial event that was built on lies and a social agenda including but not limited to removing Trump from office.
What we have started to see now is the break down of the federal government. There are several parts of this and they all appear to be happening at the same time. The death of the US dollar through inflation and a spending spree that doesn’t appear to have an end in sight. States refusing to follow Federal laws that counter state laws, or even better, the state’s interpretation of Federal Law (the constitution). We are seeing 2nd amendment sanctuary states and in some cases the state police are authorized to arrest federal agents who try to break state law. Texas even has a bill going to their state government considering leaving the Union because the federal government doesn’t represent the people of Texas. This argument is well documented with the resent law suit that was refused by the Supreme court claiming that Texas voters were disenfranchised in 2020 when other states changed their voting laws through executive orders and not through state governments like the constitution says. Texas had precedence with the 2000 verdict of Bush v. Gore where the same thing happened in the state of Florida. As one pansy judge stated during an inner office argument “I don’t want to hear about Bush v. Gore. There are riots in the streets.” Even the Supreme court appears to be dictated by mob rule.
Looking back, it would appear that Ruppert was correct about many things but of course the details are sketchy. Ruppert wasn’t a prophet and he never claimed to be. He read the signs of the times and for the moment he could see where it was going. There are factors he could never had accounted for and while peak oil doesn’t appear to be the ultimate culprit society does appear to be collapsing right on schedule. I wonder if Ruppert had stuck around if he would have considered the uprising of Wokeism and the current Communist revolution that is taking place in the country. Could this be a symptom of the limitation of energy in the world? We saw what happened in Texas when renewable energy stopped working and the shut down coal fired power plants could not be brought back online. There would also appear to be the connection of UN programs like Agenda 21 that were not considered and how they have been brought to the forefront through The Great Reset and 30 by 2030. The information that Ruppert had at the time is what he had to work with, although I am surprised that UN programs were not considered in his map of the world order. Of course, the first decade of this century had the UN appearing to be an incompetent organization that could not stop its own officers from sex trafficking and had a horrible inability to stop genocide in any country on the planet. They signed bills and laws, whined about the deaths of thousands of people but didn’t have the ability to do anything about it. The UN functioned like a castrated rooster in a hen house. It talked big, acted like it would do something, but in the end, there were no results. Now with the World Economic Forum, the UN, and the adaptation of the Great Reset in the policies of countries across the planet the UN appears to have a new power implemented through national policies rather than a world governmental body. Now instead of having one group of idiots trying to run things they don’t understand we have several groups of idiots taking orders from those idiots and creating systems that will cause chaos and death across the planet. Great.
To answer the question, was Ruppert right? Yes and no. the Peak oil argument has fallen on its face and while it could still happen in the coming years it would appear the greater threat to civilization is government policy and the new secular religion of Wokeism. Throw in a little communism and you have the break down of society that Ruppert described. All the small details are there, the riots, the inability for supply chains to function, loss of revenue for government, the death of the dollar as the reserve currency, and the outbreak of war. Its funny how so many of these were delayed while a different president was in office and suddenly, we are seeing an uptick in chaos with a change of office. If you were to take out the peak oil argument from Collapse then his predictions would be correct. While Ruppert wasn’t a prophet he was a brilliant man who could put pieces together and figure out what was really going on. I know that some people will want me to say that he was wrong and had some mental issues but with every bit of genius comes a hint of crazy. The man lived an interesting life and when you know what he does its difficult to stay sane in an insane world. Ruppert saw the collapse of society coming and I am left wondering what he would have thought about the revelation of UFOs, now that would have been interesting.
