Art of the Collapse, February 2024 - John Rubino's Substack


Civil War?…

So the US opens its borders and millions of people stream across. Border states are inundated, and Texas blocks one of the more popular illegal entryways with razor wire.

Supreme Court Rules Texas Must Replace Barbed Wire With Giant Red Carpet

(Babylon Bee, Nogales, TX) - In yet another 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court has ruled that Texas must remove all barbed wire along the border and replace it with a massive, plush red carpet.

"How will migrants be able to get in the country if there's barbed wire in the way?" said a visibly confused Justice Sotomayor. "They might get hurt! An elegant red carpet makes much more sense. It's soft and red and can helpfully point the way to gaps along our border and make our new migrants feel welcome. It says that in the Constitution somewhere. Like, in Section 3 Article B or whatever."
