When the U.K. voted for Brexit in June 2016, the globalists were stunned. They couldn’t believe it. They then did everything they could to delay and fight Brexit. Then when Donald Trump won the election as president in November 2016, the globalists were even more stunned. They went into complete denial and put their heads in the sand. They comforted themselves with the convenient myth that Russian interference lost them the election, not a popular rejection of their ideology.
Yet it kept getting worse for globalists. Both China and Russia have become more nationalistic and completely turned their backs on globalism. The pandemic only strengthened the trend away from globalism, and the fractured supply chains we’re now seeing expose globalism’s fragile underbelly. These chains may be efficient and economical, but when they break down, it has a rippling effect on the global economy. It’s like pulling on one strand on a carpet. The entire thing is affected.
Globalists worship at the altar of free trade. But free trade is a myth. It doesn’t exist outside classrooms. France subsidizes agriculture. The U.S. subsidizes electric vehicles. China subsidizes a long list of national champions with government contracts, cheap loans and currency manipulation. Every major economy subsidizes one or more sectors using fiscal and monetary tools and tariffs and nontariff barriers to trade.
America grew rich and powerful from 1787–1962, a period of 175 years, using tariffs, subsidies and other barriers to trade to nurture domestic industry and protect high-paying manufacturing jobs. In fact, tariffs are as American as apple pie. Beginning in 1962, the U.S. turned its back on a successful legacy of protecting its jobs and industry and embraced the free trade theory. This was done first through the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, or GATT, one of the original Bretton Woods institutions in addition to the World Bank and IMF.

Vaccines Don't Stop The Virus. Get Vaccinated Anyway
Medical literature indicates that the immune... who undergo vaccination… are 56% more likely to acquire the virus. Why then must they endure vaccination? Besides, it is now known these potions lose their oomph within months. The magic dissipates. Another dose is then required. It too will fade. Even Dr. Fauci acknowledges this fact. Even Mr. William Gates — vaccine kingpin — acknowledges this fact. Yet they insist upon universal vaccination. (Taken from the article)
