Civilian Control: The Pentagon Speaks

This article was originally published by Jacob Hornberger at The Future of Freedom Foundation. 

The Joint Chiefs of Staff have spoken. Issuing a remarkable memorandum to all members of the Armed Forces, the JCS have declared that Joe Biden will be the new president of the United States. The memo may have been not only one to military personnel but also to President Trump: No matter how convinced you are that the election was stolen from you, don’t even think about remaining in power because we will ensure your forcible exit from the White House.

Unfortunately, relatively few people, including libertarians, comprehend that the Pentagon, along with the CIA and the NSA and, to a certain extent, the FBI, are the part of the federal government in which ultimate power is being wielded. They are the ones who are ruling the roost in America. That’s why that memo is so important. It’s declaring how things will be.

This overwhelming power is usually exercised behind the scenes in order to make Americans feel comfortable that their government is different from other national-security governments. While the national-security branch of the government is driving the overall direction America will take, especially with respect to foreign affairs, it permits the other three branches to maintain the appearance of power. The idea is to convince Americans that the federal government operates the same as a national-security state as it did when it was a limited-government republic.

But it’s a lie, a very dangerous lie, one that unfortunately is lived by all too many Americans, especially those within the mainstream press.

If you haven’t read the book National Security and Double Government by Michael J. Glennon, you owe it to yourself to do so so. This is Glennon’s thesis — that the national-security establishment is the part of the federal government that is wielding and exercising the ultimate power within the governmental structure. At the same time, however, it permits the legislative, judicial, and executive parts of the government to continue appearing to be in charge.

Glennon is not some crackpot writer. He is a professor of international law at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. He has served as a consultant to various congressional committees, the US State Department, and the International Atomic Energy Agency. You can read a more complete biography here.

If Glennon is right — I firmly believe that he is — then it requires people, including libertarians, to reevaluate everything they understand about the country, especially foreign affairs.

Consider, for example, the many laments against America’s “forever wars.” It’s a popular mantra, including among libertarians. But what good does it do to complain about “forever wars” if the root cause of such wars is left in place, where it is in charge?

In other words, the national-security establishment needs those forever wars, just as it needed the Cold War. Any national-security state necessarily depends on fear, crises, chaos, and emergencies — or “threats” of such things to sustain its existence, its power, and its money. They will always find something for people to be afraid of, even if they have to instigate it. Communism, terrorism, drug dealers, illegal immigrants, Muslims, Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Iran, Syria, insurrectionists, revolutionaries, invaders, or whatever. Without such fearful things, people are apt to ask why they need a national-security state instead of a limited-government republic, which was the type of governmental structure on which America was founded.

What is the distinguishing characteristic of a national-security state, as compared to a limited-government republic? Power — raw, unadulterated power. With its vast military and arsenal of weaponry, along with extreme powers of assassination and surveillance, a national-security establishment has the means of imposing its will on government and on society. No one wields the countervailing power to resist.

This why precisely why our American ancestors opposed the creation of a national-security state or what they called “standing armies.” They understood that once such a governmental apparatus comes into existence, there is no practical way for the citizenry, even a well-armed citizenry, to oppose it. In fact, if the Constitutional Convention had proposed a Constitution that called into existence a federal government that was a national-security state, rather than a limited-government republic, there is no way that Americans would have approved the Constitution.

Practically from the beginning of the conversion to a national-security state, the other three branches have deferred to the overwhelming power of the Pentagon and its vast military-industrial complex, the CIA, and the NSA. All three of those branches have understood the nature of power.

For example, in the 1950s the Pentagon insisted that the Supreme Court grant it a state-secrets doctrine. Ordinarily, that is a legislative function; that’s the way things are ordinarily done in a democracy. The Supreme Court went along with what the Pentagon wanted, thereby circumventing the legislative process.

Consider assassination. The Constitution did not delegate such a power to the federal government. The Bill of Rights expressly prohibits the federal government from killing anyone without due process of law. Nonetheless, when the national-security establishment insisted on having the power to assassinate people, including Americans, the Supreme Court acceded to its demand.

Look at Gitmo, where people have been held for more than a decade without trial. Never mind that the Bill of Rights requires the federal government to grant people speedy trials. That doesn’t matter when it comes to the military and the CIA. The federal judiciary is not going to interfere.

Congress has proven to be just as deferential. For one thing, Congress is filled with people who could be considered to be self-designated assets of the national-security establishment. This especially includes military and CIA veterans. They are almost certain to go along with whatever the national-security establishment wants. For those who strenuously object, they encounter the threat of having military bases or projects in their districts canceled, in which case the mainstream media in their districts will go after them with a vengeance. And there is always the possibility of being “Hoovered” with the threat of having friendly assets in the mainstream press reveal compromising secrets about one’s personal life.

And woe to any president who takes on the national-security establishment. They all know this. That’s why there hasn’t been a president since John F. Kennedy willing to challenge them. For a while, it looked like Trump was going to do so but it wasn’t long before Americans saw that he too quickly fell into line.

It’s time for Americans to do some serious soul-searching and to ask themselves some penetrating questions: Is a root cause of America’s many woes the fact that it is a national-security state, just like China, Russia, and North Korea? Is it time to restore America’s founding system of a limited-government republic? Which governmental structure is more likely to lead to liberty, peace, prosperity, and harmony?

Americans armed protests break free certify election results Congress COVID-19 democracy is mob rule Donald Trump elections are selections FBI geo political government is slavery Headline News Hoax human rights Insurrection Intelwars Joe Biden Kamala Harris Law Enforcement scamdemic security officials Stop the steal Storm capitol

FBI Warns: Armed Protests Planned For All 50 State Capitols

According to the FBI, armed protests are planned for all 50 state capitols as the inauguration of Joe Biden approaches.  The FBI said in a statement: “The FBI is supporting our state, local, and federal law enforcement partners with maintaining public safety in the communities we serve.”

Supporters of President Donald Trump will descend upon the capital cities of all 50 states in advance of the inauguration if the FBI’s warning is correct. Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris are expected to be sworn in at a ceremony at the Capitol. The Biden team has already urged Americans to avoid traveling to the capital because of the Covid-19 hoax. But now, “authorities” are urging people to stay home.

Security officials have said there will be no repeat of the breach seen on 6 January, when thousands of pro-Trump supporters were able to break into the building where members of Congress were voting to certify the election result.- BBC

Not to be the ones to attempt unity, house Democrats say a vote to impeach the president will happen on Wednesday. They are accusing President Trump of “incitement of insurrection” and say the vote will be held unless Vice-President Mike Pence invokes constitutional powers to remove Trump from office. There is no sign that Pence is willing to do so.

Because Democrats hold a majority in the house, Trump is expected to become the first president to be impeached twice. This could have an impact on planned protests and it will also solidify the division the government is using to make sure the New World Order’s Great Reset is ushered in.

An internal FBI bulletin, reported by ABC News and other outlets, is also warning that one group is calling for the “storming” of state, local, and federal courthouses around the country if Trump is removed from office early and on inauguration day if he is not.

Democrats Plan To Pressure Pence To Remove Donald Trump

Violence and a show of force will only amplify the situation and cause a crackdown on the public. The best thing to do right now is to stay out of all of this.  Help others if you can, and try to do the right thing.  Stay out of this fray, stay prepared, and make sure you’re alert and use discernment. In the coming weeks, cooler heads will prevail.

The Gray Man Concept: Tips To Improve This Important Survival Skill

The solution is to leave the system and stop supporting it.

Americans authority conspiracy theories Debate Donald Trump enlightened government is slavery Headline News Intelwars left vs. right paradigm lie Leftists liberation Mainstream media matrix no masters no rulers no slaves oppression Self-ownership sheep Society the system trust is zeron voluntaryism

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT: THE LATEST!

This article was contributed by The Wealth Research Group. 

Why is America getting split apart? What is the underlying cause of the division, the root of the issue, the heart of the rift that is visibly growing between left and right?

If you ask a Trump supporter or a Trump hater, they would give you one of a myriad of answers, but the bottom line, as far as we’re concerned, is trust in authority.

Trump’s supporters want him in office, because they trust him. They have no faith in career politicians at all; there’s a growing number of Americans, Europeans, and other westerners, who have come to the conclusion that career politicians are bought and paid for, represent interests that are not those of the majority of Americans and are colluding with foreign interests to globalize and to strip the rights of the average person. In developing nations, where distrust in government is the norm, this seems obvious, but westerners somehow forgot that governments have historically been a hindering force, not a liberating one.

If the media calls these anti-establishment ideas conspiracy theories, then Trump supporters consider it a way for the mainstream media to delegitimize what they think in their heart of hearts to be true, thus they don’t panic when the media attempts to debunk anything.

They simply do not trust the mainstream media at all.

My purpose is not to debate whether they’re right or wrong; it is to show that in today’s world, there are tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of people, who have either zero faith or well below average confidence in their elected officials, whom they deem as crooked and working to enslave, deprive and censor them.

These issues are not to be brushed off and they’re not only shared by people on the sidelines or fringes of society; conspiracy theories once deemed as “nuts” have come to fruition, and now a great many feel enlightened about the nature of politics, big business and the deep state and the relationships that form between global interests.

As long as the system was reasonably working for most, they just sleepwalked through life, not caring about these issues, which have been known to many of us for decades. The ignorant were blissfully enjoying the invisible cage.

You and I have known about the elites, the deep state agenda, illegitimate warfare, global interests and secret societies for a long time; now there are many more who do, since the tragic comedy that is politics is much more visible to us. We can see their mistakes, their lack of self-discipline, their hypocrisy and double standards.

Criticism is labeled as spreading fake news and is censored; it’s a thin line that tech giants are walking on.

Wealth Research Group does not believe that these dividing issues are going away whatsoever; trust is impossible to rebuild, once it’s fully lost. Permanently shutting down Trump’s Twitter account may end up being a disastrous decision for this country.

While calls for impeachment have been made and articles have already been drafted, Trump is talking about building his own communications platform.

As I said before, it’s difficult to publish our letter without getting comments from both the left and the right, arguing their case.

Our mission is to analyze the politics and then translate it into finances.

In the end, being an efficient person requires handling YOUR BUSINESS, even in the midst of social crises. Stay disciplined about your affairs first; nothing is more important than realizing that being the best version of yourself is the most effective thing you can do for others.

American republic Americans Election abuses Georgia runoff election Intelwars U.S. Constitution

Levin: I am appalled at the election of Raphael Warnock

As an American who reveres our country, our founding, and our Constitution, I am appalled at the election of Raphael Warnock. His beliefs, as declared over the course of decades, about this country, race, Israel, and a host of other issues are frightening. As a Jew, I find Warnock’s relentless anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements shocking, yet they represent a growing view within the Democrat Party, the left, and the media. And those statements were never condemned by Democrat Party leaders and the media. In fact, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned hard for Warnock, and this morning the media are touting his historic victory without comment about what the election of such an extremist and anti-Semite means for the future of the Democrat Party and the nation. Such self-censorship is now all too familiar.

Furthermore, as Democrats and the media, as well as a sizeable number of GOP officials in Washington and their pundits and media, condemn the president for fighting to the bitter end over serious election abuses — the worst of which are the constitutional violations in key battleground states strategically instituted by the Democrat Party and Biden campaign — precious little is said about the declared intention of the Democrat Party to gut the independence of the Supreme Court by packing it with left-wing ideologues, destroying the Senate by packing it with new Democrat senators from Puerto Rico and D.C., killing the filibuster rule to ensure that all and any laws the Democrats wish to pass will come to pass, and destroying the Electoral College. If carried through, this will be the greatest attack on our Constitution and our republican system since the Civil War — when the Democrat Party led the Confederacy. The media, of course, are all in with this. From the New York Times and the1619 Project and the Russian collusion conspiracy by the media and the Democrat Party to the attempted coup and impeachment of President Trump, the cover-up of the Biden family ties to communist China (and other countries), the celebration of Antifa and BLM (violent anti-American organizations), the endorsement of fascistic orders from power-hungry governors violating freedom of association, the free exercise of religion, private property rights, etc., and a long list of other notable propaganda and/or censorship campaigns, the media have become a poisonous and corrupt force in our society.

In the House, Pelosi has the slimmest majority — about 10 more seats than the Republicans. If Ossoff should win the remaining Senate seat in Georgia, the Senate will be split 50-50, with Harris as the potential tie-breaker. This means by the smallest of margins, the Democrats would control Congress. Yet they would use their temporary, slimmest majority to forever alter the way in which we govern ourselves. They would shred the Constitution, which as statists they have long abhorred, and attempt to permanently control the administrative state and the electoral process. This is exactly how they turned states like California, the land of Reagan, into a one-party state with supermajorities in the legislature and no hope of Republicans retaking statewide offices.

We also face a difficult issue with Democrats who abandon the blue states they’ve helped create for Republican states, where they continue their voting pattern for Democrats and leftists. It is one of the main reasons why states like Georgia and Virginia have turned blue and Texas is moving purple. When this is combined with a half-century of unrestrained immigration and the concomitant purposeful lack of assimilation and identity politics (promoted by the Democrat Party), and now the unconstitutional evisceration of our election laws (Article II, Section 1, Clause 2), the consequences are bleak. So too with the ideological indoctrination on our college campuses and the intellectually corrupt and political partisan mass media in our country.

The Republican establishment and its handful of media propagandists are incapable of addressing any of this — and have not in any effective way. Instead, for the likes of McConnell, his first principle is his own continuing rule over the Senate Republicans. Even back in the Tea Party days, he, Boehner, and their small cabal did all they could to blunt that movement as it threatened their reign. The Democrat Party is a radical force that seeks to constantly alter our government and society, while the Republican Party is passive and ineffectual, clueless on whether or how to slow the growing tyranny. If you think about it, there have only been three Republican presidents in the last 100 years who have dared to confront the statists and their progressive movement — Coolidge, Reagan, and Trump. The disconnect between D.C. Republicans and Main Street Republicans could not be more pronounced. Yet the D.C. Republicans are adept at playing a deceitful game of saying one thing to their constituents when running for office and doing something much different once elected or re-elected. Many are simply unfit by nature, principle, or character for this struggle — a struggle for the nation’s future. Reagan won two massive landslides, yet much of the opposition he confronted to his agenda was within the GOP in Congress. Trump stopped dead the advance of the radical Obama agenda with his defeat of Clinton, but he also faced resistance within his own party — the so-called NeverTrumpers among them. Both Reagan and Trump brought the Republican Party great victories in Congress, as did the Tea Party, but the GOP establishment was not only ungrateful but contemptuous. Unlike the Democrat Party, which coddles its base, the D.C. Republicans attack their base.

While the election of an American-hating anti-Semite from Georgia to the U.S. Senate is being celebrated and the Republicans are collapsing and issuing self-righteous statements about how they’re upholding the Constitution during the electoral count today, let us remember that we are Americans. There remain tens of millions of us who love our country, our Constitution, and our freedom. We see what’s going on. We are engaged. And we are not rolling over. Like our forefathers, we care deeply about preserving our God-given natural and unalienable rights and ensuring that our children and future generations live in a free and just society. We are not going anywhere. I’ll have much more to say on the radio this evening.

already vaxxed Americans anti-vaxxers control Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci experts government is slavery Headline News Hoax immunize the population Intelwars liars mandatory vaccines moved the goalposts Operation warp speed plandemic power over people public punishments ruling class scamdemic SLAVERY tyranny United States

“Experts” Say 4.2 Million Americans Have Taken the COVID-19 Vaccine

According to mainstream media reports, 4.2 million Americans have taken the COVID-19 vaccine already. But “experts” and medical tyrants such as Dr. Antohony Fauci have said that more people need to take this vaccine.

“No excuses — we’re not where we want to be, but hopefully we’ll pick up some momentum and get back to where we want to be with regard to getting it into people’s arms,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Sunday on NBC‘s Meet The Press.

More than 4.2 million people had been given the first dose of coronavirus vaccines as of Saturday morning and 13 million doses had been distributed, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Covid Data Tracker said. The federal government had repeatedly promised 20 million people would have received their first shots by the end of the year. –CNN

Moncef Slaoui, the chief adviser for Operation Warp Speed, told CBS‘s Margaret Brennan Sunday that 17.5 million doses have been shipped and that the US federal government is optimistic they will be administered more quickly.

Head of Operation Warp Speed: The Goal Is To Immunize The U.S. Population By 2021

Currently, the vaccines are only going to healthcare workers and long-term care patients, but eventually, officials hope to distribute them to the wider public.

Medical Journal: Get The COVID-19 Vaccine, Or Be Punished HARSHLY

Fauci has already promised that this vaccine will be mandated, although not through the government. It would be needed to attend school, or go to a hospital and for those who want to travel. Basically, we’d be under a fascist system where the government doesn’t have to do anything except pay private companies to enforce their draconian enslavement of mankind.

This tyranny is far from over, and they have already moved the goalposts when it comes to this vaccine.  We aren’t going back to “normal.” It’s up to us, though, just how enslaved we are willing to be.

They Moved The Goalposts…AGAIN!: “It’s Not Over When The Vaccine Arrives”

This has never been about health, it has always been about control. Unfortunately, not enough Americans have the level of consciousness required to discern what’s really going on here.

The Propaganda Is Non-Stop For The Beast System: No Travel Without The Vaccine

Mainstream media is ramping up the propaganda in order to get the public on board with an unnecessary and unwanted vaccine. The rollout of “vaccine passports” is here, and if you want to travel, you’ll need to show proof of vaccination.

The beast system is arriving with the invention of COVID-19 and far too many Americans still don’t get it.  The dystopian future we’ve been warned about is here and it’s only going to get more tyrannical as the digital dollar is rolled out. The mainstream media is putting a nice spin on the adaptation of the beast system of control:

Now that coronavirus vaccines are starting to roll out in the US and abroad, many people may be dreaming of the day when they can travel, shop, and go to the movies again. But in order to do those activities, you may eventually need something in addition to the vaccine: a vaccine passport application.

Several companies and technologygroups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their Covid-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries. –CNN

The message is clear: if you want to buy or sell or move about freely, you’ll need proof of vaccination.

Big Tech also wants a cut for helping install the beast system of control over every single human on this planet.  “You can be tested every time you cross a border. You cannot be vaccinated every time you cross a border,” Thomas Crampton, chief marketing and communications officer for The Commons Project, told CNN Business. He stressed the need for a simple and easily transferable set of credentials, or a “digital yellow card,” referring to the paper document generally issued as proof of vaccination.

Large tech firms are also getting in on the act. IBM developed its own app, called Digital Health Pass, which allows companies and venues to customize indicators they would require for entry including coronavirus tests, temperature checks, and vaccination records. Credentials corresponding to those indicators are then stored in a mobile wallet.

all time high suicides Americans armed police closed permanently Closures control COVID-19 elitists Explosion Government hair salons Headline News helplessness Hoax Homelessness Intelwars liars in suits liberals nashville plandemic police states Raids ruling class scamdemic Shut-down sleeping tent cities United States wake up all

‘Tis The Season For Bankruptcies, Store Closings And Tent Cities…

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

We need to make 2021 a year of hope because right now there is more economic suffering in America than we have seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s.  More than 100,000 businesses have permanently closed down since the pandemic began, many of our most iconic chains have filed for bankruptcy over the past 12 months, and tent cities are popping up in major cities all across the country.

Coming into this year, the suicide rate in the U.S. was already at an all-time record high, and a Gallup survey recently discovered that the mental health of Americans is at an all-time low.  If we can’t find a way to give people hope, multitudes of Americans will decide that life is no longer worth living just like Anthony Quinn Warner did.  The explosion in Nashville should be a wake-up call for all of us because there are countless others out there that are feeling the hopelessness that Warner did.

In 2020, we saw retail stores close their doors at a pace that we have never seen before.  According to the New York Post, NYC lost more than 1,000 chain stores all by itself…

The Big Apple saw almost one in seven nationally recognized chain-store branches close their doors as the pandemic sent consumers scurrying for cover, according to a new report.

A record high 1,057 chain stores — including 70 Duane Reades, 49 Starbucks and 22 Papyruses — have waved the white flag over the past 12 months, according to the Center for an Urban Future’s annual “State of the Chains” report, set to be ­released Wednesday.

If you go back to 2018, 0.3 percent of all chain stores in the city shut down permanently.

This year, that figure has skyrocketed to 13.3 percent

The 13.3 percent decline shatters all previous records reported by the nonprofit agency since it began tracking the data 13 years ago. Last year, just 3.7 percent of all chain outlets closed, up from 0.3 percent in 2018.

Of course, the same thing is happening all over the nation.  Empty retail buildings now litter the landscape, and it is only going to get worse.

But it is hard to imagine that the next 12 months could actually be worse than the past 12 months.  In an article published earlier this month, CNN listed 30 major chains that have filed for bankruptcy in 2020…

Sadly, now that the holiday season is done there will inevitably be another huge wave of store closings and bankruptcies.

Of course the new lockdowns are certainly not helping matters at all.  Millions upon millions of people are staying home and not spending money, and this is hitting the restaurant business particularly hard.

In fact, the National Restaurant Association is warning “that 40% to 50% of restaurants may go bankrupt in the months ahead” if something is not done…

The National Restaurant Association said that 40% to 50% of restaurants may go bankrupt in the months ahead if they don’t reopen immediately. Two of the U.S.’s most iconic restaurants, the 21 Club in Manhattan and the Cliff House in San Francisco, announced they had closed their doors permanently after nearly 100 years of business. As they die, so do hundreds of jobs in these cities. The workers out of work aren’t rich. Overall, 15 million middle-income people work for bars and restaurants.

I can definitely understand why so many restaurant owners are absolutely furious right now.

You can watch one restaurant owner give an impassioned speech in which he boldly declares that “I’m not ready to give my country up to these people” right here.  I have to admit, I got pretty fired up watching that one.

Unfortunately, the control freak politicians have shown that they are willing to take draconian measures in order to implement their ridiculous lockdowns.  For example, just recently heavily armed police heartlessly raided a hair salon that refused to comply with the COVID lockdown in California.  If I was that salon owner, I would move out of California and never look back.

What is ironic is that many of the politicians that are supposed to be the most “liberal” are the ones that are actually hurting those at the bottom of the economic food chain the most

Democrats and their liberal economic advisers obsess about income inequality. Will someone please tell them that no act in modern times has widened the gap between the rich and the poor more than the lockdowns going on right now?

Diane Yentel, the president and CEO of the leftist National Low Income Housing Coalition, said, “The majority of the up to 17 million households at risk of losing their homes this winter are people of color.”

As economic conditions continues to unravel, more Americans are falling out of the middle class and into poverty with each passing day, and we continue to see more evidence of this all around the nation.  In Chicago, it was being reported that people were lined up for 15 blocks to receive food and toys at a holiday giveaway…

A Chicago actress and her foundation brought 3,000 toys, food, and countless smiles to the West Garfield Park neighborhood for the holidays Wednesday.

As CBS 2’s Marissa Parra reported, people waited for more than two hours in their cars for the giveaway, and there were lines that stretched over 15 blocks – dramatically underscoring the need.

Can you imagine waiting in a line that is 15 blocks long?

The bread lines during the Great Depression were long, but I don’t think they were that long.

Homelessness is also growing at a very frightening rate, and this is fueling the rise of tent cities from coast to coast

Tent cities are expanding across the United States as experts warn that the ongoing pandemic could lead to a ‘catastrophic’ homeless crisis where hundreds of thousands more Americans are living on the streets.

In Phoenix, authorities have converted two enormous parking lots into tent cities for the homeless, but even the homeless are being required to follow social distancing protocols

To deal with an exploding homeless population and encourage social distancing during the pandemic, Marcipoa County officials turned this pair of asphalt-topped parking lots into the area’s newest homeless shelter. The county has more than 7,500 people on the streets, and nearly 5,000 dead from COVID-19.

Inside the crowded encampment, ringed by security fencing and barbed wire, each family has been allotted a 12-by-12-foot lot, marked by paint, to separate people as much as possible.

This is the cold, hard reality that multitudes of people are living at this point.  Dependence on the government and unquestioning submission to authorities have become a way of life for countless numbers of Americans, and economic conditions are not going to be getting better for the foreseeable future.

This is why we must give people hope in 2021 and beyond because the amount of economic pain that we are witnessing around the country is already off the charts.

The government may be able to send checks to people, but it cannot give them hope.

And when people have lost all hope and have become extremely desperate, they can end up doing very foolish things just like Anthony Quinn Warner did.

For 55 Percent Of Americans, 2020 Has Been “A Personal Financial

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

One of the big reasons why so many Americans are angry about the size of the “stimulus payments” in the COVID relief bill that Congress just passed is because this year has truly been a “financial disaster” for millions upon millions of people.  More Americans than ever before are just barely scraping by from month to month, and $600 is just not going to go very far.

In 2020, small businesses have been getting slaughtered by the thousands, millions of Americans are in imminent danger of being evicted from their homes, and more than 70 million new claims for unemployment benefits have been filed since the COVID pandemic first started.  The U.S. has plunged into a brutal economic depression, and most of the country is desperately hoping that the federal government will do more to bail them out.

Of course, the truth is that we can’t actually afford another 900 billion dollar “stimulus package” on top of all the other “stimulus packages” that were already passed this year.

We are already 27.5 trillion dollars in debt, and all of this reckless spending is putting us on a highway to hyperinflation.

But most Americans don’t really care that we are literally destroying our national finances.  Most people are in desperate need of money, and the vast majority of them want checks from the government as soon as possible.

A OnePoll survey that was just released asked Americans about the current state of their finances, and that survey discovered that a whopping 55 percent of us consider this year to be “a personal financial disaster”

While there is no question 2020 has been an unparalleled health challenge, many are not losing sight of how devastating the year was for their wallets as well. A new survey finds over half of Americans (55%) consider 2020 a personal financial disaster.

That is over half the country!

And for those that are employed, that same survey found that 62 percent are planning to take on a second job in 2021 in an attempt to make ends meet…

Among employed respondents (59% in total), seven in 10 say they need a raise at their job in order to make ends meet. Sixty-two percent plan on taking on a second job in 2021 to meet their financial goals next year.

That number can’t possibly be correct, can it?

Of course there aren’t that many jobs to go around.  Already, there are millions upon millions of Americans that can’t find a “first job”.  As I discussed the other day, we have got unemployed workers sleeping in lawn chairs or sleeping in their own vehicles because that is all they can afford at this point.

We haven’t seen anything like this since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and this latest wave of lockdowns is making things even worse.

With so many Americans financially hurting, it shouldn’t be a surprise that millions of households are getting behind on their rent and mortgage payments

One-in-seven renters with family incomes from $35,000 to $100,000 were not current on their rent in November. The overwhelming majority of these renters – 79.9% — expected to face eviction within two months. Similarly, 9.6% of homeowners with a mortgage were not current on their mortgage in November. And 56.1% of those homeowners expected they will be foreclosed on in the subsequent two months.

Congress keeps extending moratoriums on rent and mortgage payments, and that has been financially devastating for landlords and mortgage holders.

At some point, the moratoriums must end, and when that happens we are going to see a tsunami of evictions that will be absolutely unprecedented in U.S. history.

Meanwhile, many Americans are going very deep into debt in a desperate attempt to keep themselves afloat financially…

More than one-third of households with incomes between $35,000 and $100,000 borrowed from credit cards, other loans as well as from friends and family to pay for their current expenses in November. Soon, debt payments will come due, burdening families that still suffer from long-term unemployment and added health care costs. This could mean rising credit default rates as well as spillovers of economic pain to other households, from who people borrowed to pay their bills.

If economic conditions were to “return to normal” in 2021, most Americans would be able to weather this financial storm just like they did in 2008 and 2009.

But things are not going to return to normal next year.

Instead, this new wave of lockdowns is going to cause thousands of more businesses to close and will force millions more Americans on to the unemployment rolls.

What we are doing to our small businesses is absolutely criminal.  At this point, small business revenues are down more than 32 percent nationwide since the month of January

Small business revenues have also taken a hit nationwide. The national average is a decrease of 32.1 percent in small business revenue since January. Washington D.C. had the worst loss in the nation at 61.6 percent. Oregon small businesses lost 16.3 percent. Illinois small businesses saw 39.2 percent decline in revenue since January.

Every day, more small businesses are closing up shop permanently.

Millions of hopes and dreams have been brutally crushed, and there is nothing that our politicians can say or do that will bring those businesses back to life.

If you have lost a business or a job this year, then that would definitely qualify as one of the “personal financial disasters” of 2020.

And as you have seen in this article, you are far from alone.

Most of the nation is deeply hurting, and the road ahead is only going to get more challenging.

In the short-term, “stimulus payments” from the federal government will definitely help tens of millions of suffering Americans.

But of course every additional dollar that our government borrows and spends just makes our long-term problems even worse.

A national economic meltdown has begun, and our politicians will try lots of things to mitigate the damage, but all of their “solutions” will only help temporarily.

This is going to be an exceedingly dark chapter for America, but most Americans still do not understand the true nature of the crisis that is now unfolding all around us.

Americans Anthony Sabatini basic human rights comply convenience COVID-19 digital dollar enslaved Floridians forced quarantines forced vaccines freedom grip on power Headline News Hoax Intelwars Laws liars in suits orders personal liberties plandemic Politicians Ron DeSantis ruling class scamdemic sovereignty stand together the masses vaccines words on paper

Politicians Warn: Vaccines Can Be FORCED On People

Politicians are now coming right out and saying they believe they have some kind of right to force a vaccine on you. They fully believe that all they need is a law (words on paper) that they wrote themselves to violate your basic human rights.

Anthony Sabatini, a Republican state representative, has already warned Floridians that under the current law, Governor Ron DeSantis or any future governor of Florida could violate “personal liberties” (basic human rights we were all born with) by forcing people to quarantine or forcing them to receive a vaccine. He also claimed he was going to file legislation to repeal the state law that could force people to get vaccinated during a public health emergency, according to Newsweek. 

“Right now in Florida, under the public health emergency statute chapter 381, they can literally take you, test you, quarantine you, but also force you to take a vaccine. They can restrain you and force you to do that,” he said. “The powers have not been used yet, but they’ve been on the books for over 25 years and it’s important that Floridians know that this power can’t be exercised by government because it’s just too much an invasion of their personal liberties.”

The law has never been used, and DeSantis has already stated that he would not force any Floridian to get a COVID-19 vaccine when one is made available.  “The state will not mandate that Floridians take these vaccines – that’s going to be the choice of each and every Floridian,” DeSantis said on November 19. Yet, never forget that politicians lie. They will do anything to maintain a grip on power.

This law actually doesn’t have to be repealed even.  Everyone simply needs to disobey the orders to get vaccinated. If we all stand together against this, no one has power over anyone else, and that’s every human being’s birthright: to be free.

In August, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said that the U.S. would likely never mandate a vaccine for the general public. And they may not. Even worse, they won’t have to. If they don’t mandate the vaccine, there will be punishments for refusing it and your life will be much less convenient than if you just bow to the ruling class and obey. Sadly, most Americans will choose convenient slavery over difficult freedom.

Medical Journal: Get The COVID-19 Vaccine, Or Be Punished HARSHLY

Recent polls suggest only 58 percent of adults would be willing to get vaccinated, but that number will likely rise when they begin issuing punishments to those who are not complying. While they probably won’t force anyone, they will make it hard to get a job, buy groceries, and could tie vaccine compliance to welfare or universal basic income. Meaning you must comply, or your finances will be cut off.

Richie From Boston: “The Darkest Winter” Is Here

We should not ever believe any politician when they say they won’t make this mandatory.  Here’s what that means: take the vaccine, and you will be a slave. Don’t take the vaccine, and we’ll make your life hell. What great choices…

Americans Citgo 6 Intelwars Prison Venezuela

American oil executives known as the ‘Citgo 6’ sentenced between 8 and 13 years in prison in Venezuela

A group of American oil executives known as the “Citgo 6” have been found guilty of corruption in Venezuela, three years after being arrested in the socialist nation shortly after they arrived for a purported business meeting.

They were each handed sentences of several years in prison, leaving their anguished families vowing to appeal and pleading for their return.

What are the details?

The six men are brothers Alirio Zambrano and Jose Luis Zambrano, Gustavo Cardenas, Jorge Toledo, Jose Pereira, and Tomeu Vadell, all American citizens who “are employees of Houston-based Citgo refining company, which is owned by Venezuela’s state oil company, PDVSA,” according to the Associated Press.

“They had been lured to Venezuela in November 2017 for a business meeting and were arrested,” the outlet noted.

On Thanksgiving Day, they were all found guilty of corruption and handed sentences of 8 years, 10 months in prison except for Pereira — Citgo’s president at the time of his arrest — who received 13 years.

Pereira’s family has written a letter to Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, pleading for the release of the 63-year-old and the others, citing his serious health conditions.

Alirio Rafael Zambrano, the brother of two of the men, told the Daily Mail the men were “undeniably innocent,” saying they had fallen victim to “judicial terrorism.”

“We, the family, are heartbroken to be separated even further from our loved ones,” he said. “We pray that the leaders of our nation step forward and continue to fight unceasingly for their freedom and human rights.”

The outlet noted that “Roger Carstens, the U.S. envoy for hostage affairs, said in June all six men were ‘in mortal danger’, with several displaying Covid-19 symptoms.”

The Daily Wire pointed to a Wall Street Journal article quoting Maduro’s attempt to justify the arrest of the Citgo 6 at the time that it occurred, when he said in a speech, “These people were born in Venezuela. They’re Venezuelans and they’ll be tried for corruption, for being thieves and traitors against the fatherland.”

What has the Trump administration done to help?

The Trump administration has called repeatedly for the release of the Citgo 6 by Caracas, but relations between the U.S. and the Maduro regime are tense at best. America has imposed strict sanctions on Venezuela and does not recognize Maduro as its president.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted Friday, “We unequivocally condemn the wrongful convictions of the Citgo 6 in Venezuela. There was no justice, no evidence, and no opportunity for defense. The use of a legal system to exert political power is yet another example of why free and fair elections are needed in Venezuela.”

Americans authoritarian authority is a myth commands COVID-19 disobey division Do what you're told Dr. anthony fauci Emergency Preparedness face masks Fraud Headline News Hoax Intelwars liar liars in suits Lie lockdowns Masters Medical Tyranny Morality no fear no masters no slaves Obey Politics propaganda Rand Paul ritualistic shame muzzles ruling class scamdemic slaves submission who owns you

Tyrant Fauci: “Now Is The Time To Do What You’re Told”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the medical tyrant, is trying to force people to comply with his authoritarian psychotic rules to stop the alleged rise in cases of COVID-19. Fauci said that “now is the time to do what you’re told.”

If there was ever a way to get free people to push back, it’s to use rhetoric such as that. Fauci can pound sand. And he’s upset that he’s been accurately labeled a dictator and authoritarian denying the truth. But he added that Americans should listen to and obey the health authorities (like himself), according to a report by Fox News. 

Senator Rand Paul said on Thursday that Fauci is demanding your submission to him.  “He believes that submission and lockdowns are fine, he’s not too worried about individual liberties,” Paul told Fox News’ Martha McCallum before adding that lockdowns and mask mandates are the equivalents to living in an “authoritarian” society. It’s perhaps worse, however.  It’s a slave state. Where some people issue commands and use force and violence and punishments to get others to comply.

He also said that he believes people are unwilling to listen to what scientists have recommended because of the “divisive” state of the country — a belief backed by a Pew Research report that found Democrats are more likely that Republicans to believe the coronavirus is threat to public health.

“All of a sudden science gets caught in a lot of this divisiveness,” he said. –Fox News

Fauci believes that if people wore their ritualistic shame muzzles and listened to social distancing advisories while maintaining sanitary measures like washing or disinfecting their hands, this virus will be able to stay in check and he’d allow the country to remain open.

It’s long past time we take matters into our own hands and keep it open ourselves. Fauci cannot close everything down unless we, the people, submit and allow it to happen. Wake up and put morality above legality.

Get Ready! MSM Predictive Programming Calls This The “Calm Before The Storm”

Many states and counties or cities within states are going into various stages of lockdown once again. Those that aren’t in some stage of lockdown already will be pushed that way in the coming weeks. As we’ve said before, if the ruling class believes they can get away with putting everyone on house arrest so they can conceal and cement their plans for world domination, they will do so.

And once again, it’s up to us to stand up and say: “No. We will not comply.”

acclimate the public Americans Bigger Picture chaos Civil War contested election council on foreign relation Donald Trump Election 2020 Faith globalist establishment government is a religion Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden max boot no concession Riots we lose Winners

Get Ready For Chaos Regardless Of Who Ends Up In The White House

In July of this year in my article ‘Election 2020: The Worst-Case Scenario Is The Most Likely One’ after I outlined the strange factors surrounding Biden and Trump, I stated that:

These factors and more lead me to predict that Election 2020 will be a contested election which ends with Trump staying in office but accused of usurping the democratic process. This outcome is the worst possible outcome and also the most advantageous for the globalist establishment.”

I also noted the predictive programming campaign by the media and members of the Council On Foreign Relations like Max Boot to acclimate the public to the idea of a contested election while also “wargaming” (planning) that exact outcome. I stated:

“…Boot is back again, this time writing about how he thinks Donald Trump will try to “hijack” the presidency in 2020.

In an article for the Washington Post titled ‘What If Trump Loses But Insists He Won’, Boot outlines a scenario that was “war gamed” by a group called the Transition Integrity Project. The group played out a scenario in which there is a razor-thin victory for Joe Biden, followed by actions by Trump to keep control of the presidency through lies and legal wrangling. The group also predicted civil unrest leading to potential “civil war” as the fight over the White House expands.

This article is, I believe, an attempt at predictive programming by the establishment. They are TELLING US exactly what is about to happen. A contested election, civil war, martial law, economic collapse, and the US will be destroyed from within.”

So far it appears my prediction was correct. As I write this the Trump Administration is filing suit in Pennsylvania over suspicious ballot actions including blocking Republican observers from watching the vote count. The fact that PA is allowing mail-in votes to be counted even though they are postmarked well after the cut-off date will also come into question. Evidence of ballot fraud is popping up in multiple swing states; it’s starting to look like Trump might remain in office after all.

If ANY of the reports of fraud are verified by the courts then the election situation changes completely. Millions of Americans will lose faith in the process and the election itself would be invalidated. Even if the uncovered fraud is not proven to have effectively shifted the vote in favor of Biden, no conservative will accept Biden as president, and the Trump Administration will have a perfect rationale for refusing to concede the White House.

Many Americans do not seem to understand the dynamic at play here. They think “winning” the vote count means an automatic Biden presidency, but this is not actually the case. Trump is already in possession of the White House – If he will not leave because of possible election tampering, then who is going to remove him? Perhaps one of the alphabet agencies, but on whose orders or authority? The military won’t remove him as the majority of them are conservative, and certainly not the Democrats as they have no ability to project power. Trump stays in because the only people that could possibly pressure him to leave (conservatives) will probably not do so.

Another scenario could involve “activist” state electors. Voters within the electoral college do not necessarily have to vote according to the popular vote within their respective states. Some states have laws that bind electors, but many do not, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, and Minnesota. The states that do have laws have little ability to enforce them, and activist electors can only be slapped with a misdemeanor. Basically, there is nothing anyone can do to stop the electoral college from voting for Trump instead of Biden.

If electors in swing states congregate in December to cast their votes and decide to cast for Trump instead of Biden because they suspect ballot fraud, this would be perfectly legal, and again, Trump stays in office.

Then there is the issue of congress finalizing the election results. Neither party currently holds a 218 seat majority in congress, and if one half of representatives refuse to validate the election then challenges to the results will arise. Once again there is a problem of legitimacy going forward for Joe Biden.

I realize that these factors and many more are giving conservatives continued hope of pulling out an election “victory”. However, I want readers to set aside the concept of “winning” for a moment and consider the bigger picture.

I was able to predict the outcome of the 2020 election (so far) because I based my analysis on what would be the most advantageous result for the globalist establishment. Meaning, even if Trump stays in the Oval Office, the globalists have much to gain.

First, lets not be naive about the situation – Trump’s cabinet is LOADED with globalists from the Council on Foreign Relations as well as numerous banking elites. If they want to steer the election response from Trump’s side, they easily can. Trump is contesting the election because he is being advised to do so.

Second, the mainstream media and the Biden campaign are already preemptively declaring Biden the winner. This sets the stage for a dangerous dynamic; consider what would happen if leftists go into December/January under the assumption that they have the presidency in the bag, when suddenly it is all snatched away from them? This narrative creates the ultimate rage scenario for the political left; they will consider Trump a usurper of the presidency and from that point on they will rationalize any and all mob violence. This civil unrest will be blamed entirely on Trump and conservatives.

Third, a mass unrest event triggers a demand for law and order. There are two ways this can be achieved: A constitutional way and an unconstitutional way. The elites in Trump’s cabinet will push for the unconstitutional response, meaning they will push for martial law. Martial law will inevitably lead to numerous violations of the Bill of Rights, which are UNACCEPTABLE under ANY circumstances.

Not only this, but what would happen if conservatives, normally staunch defenders of individual rights, suddenly decide it’s okay to trample those rights in the name of “defeating the political left”? We become the greatest hypocrites of the age, we lose the moral high ground in the long term and no one will listen to us when we argue for liberty in the future. The greatest defenders of freedom become freedom’s greatest destroyers. Again, the globalists benefit.

Anyone who tells you martial law is “the lesser evil” and that we have no other choice has an agenda they are not being honest about.

Fourth, with Trump still in office the establishment’s “great reset” agenda will continue using conservatives as the scapegoats of the economic collapse they created. Beyond that, the contested election can be used as further excuse for economic instability. The central banks which have used endless stimulus measures to inflate the massive “Everything Bubble” ever since 2008 need to divert blame for the bubble’s eventual implosion, and now they have numerous distractions that will allow them to do just that.

Fifth, even if millions of Americans view Trump’s actions as justified and the election results as rigged, much of the rest of the world will treat Trump and conservatives as pariahs. The situation becomes much worse if conservatives support martial law. The narrative will be that America is under illegitimate and tyrannical rule, and that international intervention may be required. At the very least, there will be global economic penalties, including the loss of the dollar’s world reserve status which will lead to a flood of dollars returning to the US from overseas and hyperinflation in prices.

Now don’t get me wrong, a Biden presidency will lead to immediate and violent repercussions as well, but conservatives need to wake up to the reality that a Trump presidency is not an answer to any of their problems or fears. It’s a Catch-22 situation.

Under Biden, expect the economic crash to speed up dramatically. Biden will initiate Level 4 lockdowns nationwide within weeks of becoming president and this will cause the destruction of the small business sector, which is already barely hanging on for dear life. The globalists will have to bring down the economy faster under Biden so that they can claim the crash is a residual effect of the Trump Administration. If they wait too long, the blame will fall on Biden and by extension the globalists.

Level 4 lockdowns would also help prevent conservatives from relocating to more friendly states and regions. And, they would help prevent conservatives from congregating in large groups and organizing resistance to leftist policies.

Censorship of conservative voices and platforms will have to accelerate under Biden as well, because the more conservatives are able to share information in real time, the more galvanized they will become and the more confident they will be in refusing to submit to pandemic restrictions (among other things). I believe that web service providers will start directly censoring conservative websites that use their servers. Sites like mine will be removed from the web entirely, or filtered out completely by search algorithms.

Finally, under Biden there will be an immediate call for draconian gun control measures and perhaps even gun confiscation. This will be done by executive order, and it is likely that Red Flag laws will be used. A leftist or globalist agenda cannot progress while conservatives are armed. It is impossible. No one will go along with pandemic restrictions in conservative leaning states. No one will agree to carbon controls. No one will adopt new and insane hate speech laws designed by social justice lunatics.

A Biden presidency would galvanize and unify conservative groups more than anything in recent history. Eventually, conservatives will revolt (including many in the military and law enforcement) and there will be nothing leftists or globalists can do about it. Disarmament would have to happen quickly.

This is why I believe that Trump staying in office is a better model for the globalists. Tricking conservatives into jubilantly supporting martial law measures and bringing in tyranny under their own banner is a better tactic than creating a direct confrontation between conservatives and globalists through Biden’s lockdowns.

As mentioned above, though, there is a solution. Welcome a Trump presidency if fraud is discovered but refuse to support martial law. Instead, conservatives can protect their own towns and counties by organizing community security for themselves. There is no need for the military to take on domestic security concerns. Rather, conservatives must react as many did in Idaho during the BLM riots.

When BLM and Antifa tried to bus hundreds of protesters into rural parts of the Northwest, conservative groups fielded hundreds of armed members of the community to maintain security. BLM and Antifa activists remained relatively peaceful and quiet, there was no looting and no one was hurt (as opposed to numerous other cities). It was the best possible outcome.

This model must be enacted all over the country, and Americans must take their security into their own hands. I would even suggest we start using the “M word” again: Militia.

Conservatives states and counties should start seriously considering the formation of community militias, because government cannot be trusted to remain benevolent or just when it is given the ultimate power of martial law. In the event of a Biden presidency, militias will also be necessary as a deterrent to totalitarian enforcement of federal pandemic lockdowns. If leftists want to destroy their own local economies through unnecessary lockdowns, let them. Conservatives don’t need to follow the lemmings off that cliff.

Constitutionally, militias are supposed to be verified by state governments. This might not be possible. If not, then communities should form militias anyway; just don’t call it an official or “organized” militia. If state governments try to sabotage such measures then they should be bypassed and ignored. We don’t need them in order to provide security for ourselves.

If this solution is not taken seriously and conservatives do not take matters into their own hands, I foresee catastrophe. Either we will be lured into giving credence to liberty crushing martial law, or, we will be at the mercy of Biden’s medical tyranny. The future depends on us…

Americans cavalry chaos Coronavirus COVID-19 dark winter Donald Trump Dr. anthony fauci Draconian Headline News immorality Intelwars liars LIES lockdowns Medical Tyranny Military no normal plandemic propaganda PSYCHOPATHS scamdemic tyranny Unites States Vaccine

Fauci Warns: Wear Your Mask, Or We Will Lock You Down Again

Dr. Anthony Fauci is continuing his tyrannical approach with new warnings.  He says that if we want to avoid being locked down again, we should be wearing the ritualist shame muzzles the political parasites keep pushing.

Dr. Fauci says he doesn’t believe the United States will need to go into lockdown to fight the coronavirus scam if people double down on wearing masks and social distancing. The nation’s top infectious disease expert medical tyrant says “the cavalry is coming” in the form of vaccines and that “Help is really on the way.”

Army General In Charge Of COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Fears The Public Won’t Take It

Based on statements from Donald Trump that the military will be distributing the vaccine, the use of the word “cavalry” isn’t that surprising. The fact that anyone is lining up for this vaccine after these psychopaths have already told us it won’t return our lives to “normal,” is surprising.

They Moved The Goalposts…AGAIN!: “It’s Not Over When The Vaccine Arrives”

Fauci says there are fundamental things Americans can do to stem the spread of the coronavirus. They include “universal and uniform” wearing of masks, avoiding crowds, keeping social distance, and washing hands. He says that sounds simple against a very difficult challenge but “it really does make a difference.”

This is an absolutely absurd and ridiculous notion that we can somehow stop all humans from ever getting a cold ever again. As The Mises Institute points out, this is not about a virus or health. This is about control and power.  The more they can get people to obey their draconian edicts, the more power they have.

But, putting such life-altering power—over matters such as forced lockdowns—in the hands of people who pay a negligible price for being wrong (some political damage, maybe) is not only asinine, it is plain wrong. Coercion is wrong. Taking the freedom of choice away from people by force is wrong. Tell the old woman living with a terminal illness that she must spend the final months of her life in isolation; that she can’t take a trip to the lake she’s visited since she was a child; that she can’t be surrounded by her loved ones during the remaining time she has left. Tell a business owner that their business isn’t essential. Tell the man who’s prone to depression and lives alone in a tiny studio apartment that this lockdown is for his own good. Tell the woman whose cancer diagnosis will be delayed—and thus her chances of survival reduced—that this lockdown is for her own good. –The Mises Institute

Lockdowns are immoral, plain, and simple because they violate the consent of those being forced on house arrest even though they have done no wrong. And they are coming.  It doesn’t look like we will avoid a second lockdown at this point.

Americans banned COVID-19 Deutsche Bank Donald Trump Government Headline News Intelwars LIES Middle Class office workers plandemic propaganda scamdemic tax breaks tax increase taxation is theft taxed to death work from home punished

Deutsche Bank Proposes A 5% “Work From Home” Privilege Tax

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.

At a time when the Fed is already monetizing the entire US budget deficit thanks to helicopter money, sparking conversations about the utility of taxation, and when a Biden administration is set to at least try and roll back most of the Trump tax cuts, the last thing the population wants to hear about is even more taxes.

Yet in a “modest proposal” from Deutsche Bank, the bank argues that in a time of pervasive covid shutdowns, “those who can work from home (WFH) receive direct and indirect financial benefits and they should be taxed in order to smooth the transition process for those who have been suddenly displaced.”

In other words, the argument goes that working from an office is somehow punitive, and since WFH during the pandemic leads to “many benefits” as a resulting “disconnecting themselves from face-to-face society” a 5% tax for each WFH day “would leave the average person no worse off than if they worked in the office.” The bank calculates that such a tax could raise $49bn per year in the US, €20bn in Germany, and £7bn in the UK. “That can fund subsidies for the lowest-paid workers who usually cannot work from home.”

In the report written by DB strategist Like Tumpleman, he argues that the popularity of WFH was growing even before the pandemic: “between 2005 and 2018, internet technology fuelled a 173 percent increase in the number of Americans who regularly worked from home. It is true that the overall proportion of people working from home before the pandemic was still small, at 5.4 percent based on census data, but the growth was still way ahead of the growth in the overall workforce.”

Naturally, the covid shutdowns have turbocharged that growth, and as a result the proportion of Americans who worked from home increased ten-fold to 56% during the pandemic. Many of these people will continue to work remotely for some time. Indeed, two-thirds of organizations say that at least three-quarters of their staff can work from home effectively, according to S&P Global Markets. Meanwhile, a DB survey shows that, after the pandemic has passed, more than half of people who tried out WFH want to continue it permanently for between two and three days a week.

This sudden shift to WFH means that, for the first time in history, “a big chunk of people have disconnected themselves from the face-to-face world yet are still leading a full economic life” as if that is somehow a bad thing.

It gets crazier: the bank claims that working in the comfort of one’s own home leads to a slew of financial benefits including:

  • financial savings on expenses such as travel, lunch, clothes, and cleaning.
  • indirect savings via forgone socializing and other expenses that would have been incurred had a worker been in the office.
  • intangible benefits of working from home, such as greater job security, convenience, and flexibility.
  • There is also the benefit of additional safety.

As if it is difficult to find someone who also sits in front of a computer all day long in Bangladesh and has the exact same skillset but would work for a fraction of the pay.

Yet those people who are working remotely are, according to DB, the equivalent of social parasites as they “contribute less to the infrastructure of the economy whilst still receiving its benefits” potentially extending the slump in national growth. In other words, the mere act of working from home makes you guilty of not propping up the economy!

That, according to Templeman “is a big problem for the economy as it has taken decades and centuries to build up the wider business and economic infrastructure that supports face-to-face working. If a great swathe of assets lie redundant, the economic malaise will be extended.”

In short, those who failed to develop the appropriate skill set and are “forced” to work in society – mostly employees of service companies – and who were unable to refuse to educate and train themselves to be able to “enjoy” the benefits of work from home jobs which incidentally include sitting in front of a computer for hours on end and in some notable cases masturbating in front of a zoom conference call, have to be rewarded monetarily by all those who are lucky enough to not have to work in public.

While it would be easy to laugh and merely brush this idea off as another ridiculous policy proposal from a bank whose very existence would be very much in question had it not been for several rounds of generous taxpayer-funded bailouts, since this is yet another grossly socialist proposal we are concerned it has a very high probability of passage not only in Europe but also in the US, especially if Democrats manage to pull of a “Blue wave” sweep in Georgia in January.

So far a WFH tax has merely been floated by a handful of Wall Street strategists; however once this idea gets more popular coverage, expect a groundswell of support for the idea which will promptly lead to yet another tax.

Below we republish the Deutsche Bank note in its entirety because it is clearly a blueprint for what’s to come:

A work-from-home tax, by Luke Templeman

For years we have needed a tax on remote workers – covid has just made it obvious. Quite simply, our economic system is not set up to cope with people who can disconnect themselves from face-to-face society. Those who can WFH receive direct and indirect financial benefits and they should be taxed in order to smooth the transition process for those who have been suddenly displaced.

The popularity of WFH was growing even before the pandemic. Between 2005 and 2018, internet technology fuelled a 173 percent increase in the number of Americans who regularly worked from home1. It is true that the overall proportion of people working from home before the pandemic was still small, at 5.4 percent based on census data, but the growth was still way ahead of the growth in the overall workforce.

Covid has turbocharged that growth. During the pandemic, the proportion of Americans who worked from home increased ten-fold to 56 percent. In the UK, there was a seven-fold increase to 47 percent. Many of these people will continue to work remotely for some time. Indeed, two-thirds of organizations say that at least three-quarters of their staff can work from home effectively, according to S&P Global Markets. Meanwhile, a DB survey shows that, after the pandemic has passed, more than half of people who tried out WFH want to continue it permanently for between two and three days a week

The sudden shift to WFH means that, for the first time in history, a big chunk of people have disconnected themselves from the face-to-face world yet are still leading a full economic life. That means remote workers are contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy whilst still receiving its benefits.

That is a big problem for the economy as it has taken decades and centuries to build up the wider business and economic infrastructure that supports face-to-face working. If a great swathe of assets lie redundant, the economic malaise will be extended.

WFH is financially rewarding

WFH offers direct financial savings on expenses such as travel, lunch, clothes, and cleaning. Add to these the indirect savings via forgone socializing and other expenses that would have been incurred had a worker been in the office. Then there are the intangible benefits of working from homes, such as greater job security, convenience, and flexibility. There is also the benefit of additional safety. The newly-discovered gains of home working, both tangible and intangible, all have value. And they generally outweigh the costs. The latter have mostly come in the form of additional mental stress of juggling work and children and dealing with an imperfect home-office setup. These costs should not be underestimated, however, they usually pale in comparison with the gains. Hence why the vast majority of homeworkers want to continue remote working, on at least a part-time basis, after the pandemic passes.

First, the tax will only apply outside the times when the government advises people to work from home (of course, the self-employed and those on low incomes can be excluded). The tax itself will be paid by the employer if it does not provide a worker with a permanent desk. If it does, and the staff member chooses to work from home, the employee will pay the tax out of their salary for each day they work from home. This can be audited by coordinating with company travel and technology systems.

The tax rate? Those who can work from home tend to have higher-than-average incomes. If we assume the average salary of a person who chooses to work from home in the US is $55,000, a tax of five percent works out to just over $10 per working day. That is roughly the amount an office worker might spend on commuting, lunch, and laundry, etc. A tax at this rate, then, will leave them no worse off than if they had chosen to go into the office. If we apply the same tax rate to workers in the UK with an assumed average WFH salary of £35,000, it works out to just under £7 per day. In Germany, a WFH salary of €40,000 leads to a tax of just over €7.50 per day.

A tax at this level means that neither companies nor individuals will be worse off. In fact, companies may be far better off as the savings from downsizing their office will more than makeup for the cost of the WFH tax they will incur.

How much will the tax raise?

First the US. Of the 104m Americans who work full time, half worked from home during the pandemic. That is up from the 5.4 percent who already worked from home before the pandemic. Of that additional 45 percent, our survey shows that three quarters want to work from home to some degree post-covid with 16 percent wanting one day a week, 33 percent two days, 19 percent three days, 4 percent four days, and 4 percent five days.

Adding this up, there could be 4.2bn new days every year being worked from home post covid. With an additional 394m days for those part-time and full-time staff who already work from home and are not self-employed, that gives 4.6bn WFH days per year. At an average salary of $55,000 and a tax rate of five percent, the WFH tax will raise $48bn per year. The same calculation in the UK and Germany (using country-specific WFH data and the salary levels assumed above) yields a tax take of £6.9bn and €15.9bn respectively.

What can the government do with this money?

In the US, the $48bn raised could pay for a $1,500 grant to the 29m workers who cannot work from home and earn under $30,000 a year (excluding those who earn tips). Many of these people are those who assumed the health risks of working during the pandemic and are far more ‘essential’ than their wage level suggests.

Similarly, in Germany, the €15.9bn raised could fund a €1,500 grant to the bottom 12 percent of people in the country who have a standard of living equivalent to €12,600 (after adjusting for the size of their household). Similarly in the UK, the £6.9bn raised could provide a grant of £2,000 to 12 percent of those aged over 25 who work for the minimum wage. Of course, the exact amount of the grant could be based on an asymmetric tapering system.

Some will argue against the tax. They will say that engagement with the economy is a personal choice and they should not be penalized for making that decision. Yet, these people should remember that governments have always backsolved taxes to suit the social environment. Consider that in centuries past, when it was socially unpalatable in the UK to introduce an income tax, the government implemented a window tax. As society changed, the window tax was abolished and, eventually, an income tax was introduced. In the same way, as our current society moves towards a state of ‘human disconnection’, our tax system must move with it.

Best of all, a WFH tax does not merely subsidize businesses that have no long-term future. If, for example, a city-center sandwich shop is no longer needed, it does not make sense for the government to support the business in the medium term. But it does make sense to support the mass of people who have been suddenly displaced by forces outside their control. Many will have to take low-paid jobs while they retrain or figure out their next step in life. From a personal and economic point of view, it makes sense that these people should be given a helping hand. It also makes sense to recognize that essential workers assume the covid risk for low wages. Those who are lucky enough to be in a position to ‘disconnect’ themselves from the face-to-face economy owe it to them.

Americans Army General COVID-19 Delusional democrats will take the vaccine Donald Trump food and drug administration Gus Perna Headline News Intelwars medical terrorism Military Operation warp speed political vaccine Prepare propaganda Vaccine vaccine rollout vials of vaccine

Army General In Charge Of COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Fears The Public Won’t Take It

 

Army General Gus Perna was two months from retirement in May when Donald Trump asked him to head up Operation Warp Speed, which aims to get 300 million Americans vaccinated for COVID-19.  But now, the general fears Americans won’t be willing to take the vaccine.

A recent video from CBS’ 60 Minutes shows hundreds of vials of a vaccine being stockpiled ahead of its approval by the FDA.  Far too many delusionally believe that the military won’t be involved and that somehow this nefarious plan to innoculate the globe wasn’t drummed up under Donald Trump. Nothing can be further from the truth:

Make preparations as necessary if you intend to refuse this vaccine when the military comes around. It’s coming and it’ll be soon.

Medical Journal: Get The COVID-19 Vaccine, Or Be Punished HARSHLY

A Pew Research poll conducted in September found about half of US adults (51 percent) wouldn’t get a COVID-19 vaccine should one be available today. In May the figure was 72 percent, according to the DailyMail. 

Those who say they would not be happy to get the injection also runs roughly along party political lines with less than half of Republicans (47%) saying they would take the jab but with 81% of Democrats ready to line up to be inoculated, according to the poll by Gallup. –DailyMail

Top Lawyer Says The Government Has THE POWER To “Plunge a NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM”

He said the two scenarios believed to be likely were the approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of a vaccine developed by Pfizer, followed by approval of another from Moderna. Once the FDA gives the green light, the vials of the vaccine will start rolling out – with most states planning on giving the first doses to healthcare workers and frontline service employees.

The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses and could be available as soon as this month. Along with it will come a huge propaganda push to try to get everyone to take the shot.

Americans control crash Debt desperation digital dollar election elmination experts Forecasting Greg Mannarino Headline News Humanity hungry Intelwars livlihoods selection SLAVERY social credit score stock markets Taxed traced tracked

Greg Mannarino: “They Want People Desperate. People Aren’t Desperate Enough”

Greg Mannarino says the stock market will continue to rise for now and expect more debt after the election to spur inflation. The big goal now is to destroy the middle class and make people desperate. And they aren’t yet desperate enough.

Another lockdown that impoverishes more and takes the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands more people could very well be coming down the pike. Already, “more Americans are going hungry today than we have seen in the last  75 years. That’s pretty profound,” says Mannarino.

That says a lot about the current financial state of affairs in this country right now.  But unless people get more desperate, they won’t be taking the central bank’s new digital dollar, which will be tracked, traced, taxed, and tied to a social credit score.  You can be eliminated at will and prevented from spending money if the powers-that-shouldn’t-be decide it.

This should honestly horrify everyone.  Our permanent enslavement is around the corner if we don’t wake up and stop letting political psychopaths and central banks dictate our lives. If you want a clear picture of what the establishment ruling class wants, it’s the New World Order and can be summed up by reading this article:

If America had any sense, we would be locking down again now

Poverty must occur to create dependence on the system in order for this to work in the elitists’ factor.  Once you understand the end game, you should know their next moves, at least to some extent.

This market is all fake, everything is staged, and we are living in a Matrix far too many are hopelessly dependent upon.

Americans Conspiracy Fact and Theory DECEPTION democracy is a scam Donald Trump elections entitled federal agencies Full Disclosure Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden liars in suits LIES Mainstream media Obey People Politicians rottenness of conduct rulers ruling class slaves slaves suggestion box tactics Thomas Jefferson voters voting booths

“Choose Your Liar” Democracy

This article was originally published by James Bovard at The American Institute for Economic Research. 

The final weeks of a presidential campaign are aome of the best opportunities to view political perfidy in spectacular colors. While the media lectures Americans about their civic duty to vote to save the nation, the candidates continue conniving nonstop with no respect for the facts or decency.

After the election is settled, the media and the political establishment will announce “the system worked” and Americans must again respect and obey their rulers (unless Trump is re-elected, of course).

Politicians have mandated warning labels for almost everything except voting booths. Federal agencies require full disclosure of risks for everything from mortgages to volunteering for medical experiments. People are entitled to far more information when testing baldness cures than when casting votes that could lead to war.

Hopefully, Americans will not be as gullible after the election as many are before casting their ballot. Dishonesty is the distinguishing trait of the political class, going all the way back to ancient Athens and the satirical plays of Aristophanes. In 1799, Thomas Jefferson observed, “Whenever a man casts a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct.”

A successful politician is often merely someone who bamboozled more voters than the other liar running for office. Political campaigns rely on deception because, as economist John Burnheim explained, “Overwhelming pressures to lie, to pretend, to conceal… are always present when the object to be sold is intangible and its properties unverifiable until long after the time when the decision to buy can be reversed.”

Lying has long been part of presidents’ job description: the names of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon practically became synonyms for deceit. Former President George W. Bush is being rehabilitated by the media nowadays. But Bush made “232 false statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and another 28 false statements about Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda,” as the Center for Public Integrity reported. Bush’s determination to dishonestly drag America into another Middle East war led to the deaths of more than 4,000 American troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

President Barack Obama received sainthood even before his election and he retained his halo even though he falsely promised dozens of times that people could keep their doctor after Obamacare’s decrees took effect. Obama campaigned in 2008 on a peace platform and then bombed seven nations. Obama promised “no more illegal wiretapping” but he unleashed the National Security Administration to target any American “searching the web for suspicious stuff.”

The 2016 presidential race was a landmark: never before had American voters been obliged to choose between two such widely despised candidates. Routine deceit by both candidates helped make “post-truth” the 2016 word of the year according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

The 2020 race is also deluging voters with near-record levels of malarkey. Joe Biden denied referring to American soldiers as “stupid bastards” (despite a video of his spiel), denies that his son Hunter has done anything wrong (despite the pesky laptop emails), and exaggerated the Covid death toll a hundredfold. Trump has ludicrously portrayed his pandemic response as faultless, wildly exaggerates the economic achievements of his administration, and perennially denies the damage inflicted here by his trade wars. The one certainty is that the 2020 election will not be won by an honest man.

If a new president is elected next month, the media will insist that “this time is different” and that Americans can safely trust the White House again. In reality, Election Day merely marks a brief intermission between campaigning lies and governing lies. Yet, if Biden wins, Americans will be encouraged to pretend that election victories expunge the sins – or at least the character defects – of triumphant politicians. Winners supposedly deserve a “honeymoon” where people pretend they are trustworthy enough to enact new laws and launch ruinous new federal programs.

But nothing happens after Election Day to make politicians less venal. Presidents and members of Congress take oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution. But, as former U.S. senator Bob Kerrey explained in 2013, “The problem is, the second your hand comes off the Bible, you become an asshole.” When elected officials scorn the Constitution, politics becomes little more than promising and pilfering.

America is increasingly a “Garbage In, Garbage Out” democracy. Politicians dupe citizens and then invoke deluded votes to sanctify and stretch their power. In the post-9/11 era, politicians treat Americans like medical orderlies treat Alzheimer’s patients, telling them anything that will keep them subdued. It doesn’t matter what untruths the people are fed because they will surely forget them.

Lies subvert democracy by crippling citizens’ ability to rein in government. As Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco and mentor for Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, said, “In politics, a lie unanswered becomes truth within 24 hours.” Any lie accepted by a sufficient number of ignorant voters becomes a political truth.

Disregarding political lies paves the way for official crimes. As former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg declared, “When we tolerate dishonesty, we get criminality.” If elected politicians can lie and cover up their actions, then how can any reasonable person not expect to be oppressed?

Politicians assure that voters’ apparent consent is irrevocable regardless of how many lies permeated election campaigns. But there is no such thing as retroactive self-government. Belatedly exposing political lies does nothing to resurrect lost freedoms.

Deceiving voters is as much a violation of their rights as barring them from the polling booth. Only if we assume that people consent to be lied to can pervasive political lies be reconciled with democracy. And if people consent to deceit, elections become little more than patients choosing who will inject their sedatives.

President Obama, in his January 2017 farewell address, criticized Americans who “blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them.” By Obama’s standard, the perpetual perfidy of the political class would justify condemning voters almost regardless of how they cast their ballots. Obama also condemned people who did not vote. Obama thereby created a no-win situation – except for politicians.

Obama, in his 2016 speech to the Democratic National Convention, also declared, “We do not look to be ruled.” Regardless of the irony of a heavy-handed ruler tossing out that line, it rings true for tens of millions of Americans who make their own liberty their supreme political value.

In the short run, the political game is rigged so that winners capture far more power than many, if not most, Americans would willingly cede to them and vastly more than the Constitution permits. But citizens can reduce the hazards they face by remembering that winning votes never redeemed a rascal. The winner of next month’s presidential election will be a clear and present danger to Americans’ rights and liberties regardless of his margin of victory.

Americans bill gates Censorship challenges coercion complaining control Donald Trump Federal government Headline News Intelwars LIES mandatory Manipulation Military no vaccines propaganda campaign public outcry United States Vaccine vaccine hesitancy war for your mind Warning

Bill Gates: The U.S. Should “Brainstorm” Ways To Reduce “Vaccine Hesitancy”

Bill Gates is warning that there will soon be a hardcore propaganda push in the United States in order to convince people to take the coronavirus vaccine.  Gates says the U.S. should brainstorm ways to reduce “vaccine hesitancy.”

Gates is not the only technocrat who wants to use a harsh propaganda campaign with totalitarian forced compliance undertones of control disguised as “voluntary.”

Coronavirus czar Anthony Fauci hinted back in June that he was already on the task of pushing vaccine propaganda, revealing the government had a “public relations blitz” planned in which “people [vaccine-hesitant Americans] can relate to in the community.” These “relateable people” will be “sports figures, community heroes, people that they look up to” and will aid the federal government in the spread of the pro-vaccine gospel.

Gates had harsh words for both people who don’t want to be controlled and manipulated and the social media platforms he believes enable them, complaining about free access to opinions and information. Gate whined that “very titillating things” like the notion that “somebody intentionally made this virus, or that there’s some conspiracy” spread online “so much faster than the truth, which is that it comes from a bat,” according to a report by RT.  Gates called on social media to censor information and use their power to silence others to promote things such as the ritualistic shame muzzle face mask.  He said he wants to “slow down or annotate things that actually cause huge damage, like not wearing masks or not being willing to take the vaccine if it proves that it is this key tool to getting back to normal.”

Except we aren’t ever going back to normal, Those elites and the ruling class puppets have already said the vaccine is not going to give us a free pass to return to normal, so what’s the point? In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the point is authoritarian control over everyone.

WHO Says We Won’t Return To “Normal” After The Vaccine Is Released

Tyrants: “Prepare To Wear Masks & Socially Distance Even After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine”

Medical tyrants are also suggesting that the punishment for not taking the vaccine “voluntarily” will be harsh. A prominent medical journal (funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) stated that a straight-up mandate would probably be challenged and nullified in court. So the journal suggested earlier this month in the New England Journal of Medicine should first focus on “at-risk populations” and those who refuse should be threatened with punishments such as job loss for failure to get vaccinated. Australian PM Scott Morrison similarly had to walk back comments that vaccination should be “as mandatory as possible” after intense public outcry.

U.S. President Donald Trump has promised the military with delivering a vaccine to the public.

Americans bill bloodstream CDC Coronavirus COVID-19 Department of Defense Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Federal Reserve Force Forecasting free vaccine Headline News health care workers Intelwars mandatory Military plans released playbook Prepare Robert redfield store food toxic concoction vaccinated everyone vaccnine vital workers

The Government Has Released Their Initial Plans To Force a Vaccine on EVERYONE

Earlier today, the Trump administration released its plans to vaccine everyone in a short time.  Three potential vaccines are currently in Stage 3 trials in the United States and could be ready in weeks, President Donald Trump said Tuesday.

Time is running out. And Trump has the military lined up and ready to distribute this vaccine to the public, whether you want it or not. The plan is to distribute the vaccine first to health care and other vital workers, as well as those most vulnerable (likely the older populations). After production ramps up, it will be made available to all Americans who want it. If you decide you don’t want it, don’t worry, the military will help convince you.

The Department of Defense and federal health agencies have outlined plans for a coronavirus vaccine, which includes having them available for free for all Americans. We have warned that the DoD is about to become the enemy of the public. Instead of committing terrorism abroad, they will be going that here. Prepare yourself.

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

This toxic concoction will also be “free.” The government says they will foot the bill (borrow money from the Federal Reserve) to get everyone vaccinated, according to the Watauga Democrat. 

“Preparing for the implementation of the safe and efficacious COVID-19 vaccine programs is a critical next step in the efforts to protect Americans and reduce the impact of COVID-19 and restore our normal way of life,” Centers for Disease Control and Director Dr. Robert Redfield said Wednesday, according to CNN.

The plans came in the form of a report to Congress and a “playbook” for states and local governments, according to the Associated Press and Fox News. The agencies are looking at January for a potential beginning of a vaccination campaign, although it remains possible that this could come later this year.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s playbook, the vaccination campaign will be “much larger in scope and complexity than seasonal influenza or other previous outbreak-related vaccination responses.”

President Trump said in a “Fox & Friends” interview Tuesday that a vaccine could be approved “in a matter of weeks.”

Time is almost up. Once this vaccine gets into your bloodstream, you cannot take it back out. This one is different from every other vaccine made, and it’s going to be necessary if you want to get groceries or leave your house. Mandatory or not, they will do what they can to convince you to take this vaccine.

Stay alert and be prepared.

Americans Bay Area California Commodities costs Electricity Emergency Preparedness Extra Money Federal Reserve Financial Food Headline News inflation Intelwars lockdown Middle Class money Money Creation Preparedness Struggling

Cost of Living Continues to Rise RAPIDLY As Americans Struggle to Get By

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released new data that says the cost of living is going up as the main street economy crashes and the dollar loses its purchasing power. This also comes as more and more Americans continue to struggle to get by in the aftermath of the government’s reaction to the scamdemic.

The new numbers released are comparing the consumer price index, which is essentially the price of common things we pay for all averaged together, of 2019 to that of 2020. The number has gone up.

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.4 percent in August on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.6 percent in July, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 1.3 percent before seasonal adjustment. –BLS.gov

Since the Federal Reserve, the central banks, is continuing to bail out corporations and create money out of thin air, inflation and costs for basic necessities will continue to rise. Some areas of the economy are being hit harder than others too. The cost of food has jumped in the Bay Area of California, propelled by meat, poultry, and fish prices that have skyrocketed, joining soaring electricity costs, according to a report by Mercury News. Meat, fish, and poultry prices have soared a whopping 17.4 percent over the past 12 months ending in August in the Bay Area. This means that these prices are at a super-heated pace that’s 11 times greater than the region’s cost of living during the same one-year period.

Because the cost of living is going up as the economy is struggling for everyday folks, it’s important to make a plan. Preparedness should include financial emergencies. Even though the dollar is crashing, having a little extra money on hand to be able to pay 3-6 months’ worth of bills will help you get through tough times. All it would take to eliminate the middle class is one more lockdown.

If You Feel Like Something Really, Really Bad Is About To Happen, You Are Definitely Not Alone

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

If this is “the recovery”, what are things going to look like once economic conditions start to deteriorate again?  As you will see below, more than half of all households in some of our largest cities “are facing serious financial problems”, and Americans continue to file for unemployment benefits at a rate that the United States had never seen before prior to 2020.

When 695,000 workers filed for unemployment benefits during a single week in 1982, it established a record which stood for nearly 38 years.  But now we have been way above that old record for 25 weeks in a row.  On Thursday, we learned that another 884,000 Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits last week…

Weekly jobless claims were worse than expected last week amid a plodding climb for the U.S. labor market from the damage inflicted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Labor Department on Thursday reported 884,000 first-time filings for unemployment insurance, compared with 850,000 expected by economists surveyed by Dow Jones. The total was unchanged from the previous week.

Of course, it is always important to look at the non-adjusted numbers, and according to those numbers, we actually saw an increase over the previous week

The Labor Department changed its methodology in how it seasonally adjusts the numbers, so the past two weeks’ totals are not directly comparable to the reports from earlier in the pandemic. Claims not adjusted for seasonal factors totaled 857,148, an increase of 20,140 from the previous week.

This is the second week in a row that the non-seasonally adjusted initial claims have risen.

That definitely wasn’t supposed to happen.

We are supposedly in a “recovery” right now, and things are supposed to be getting better.

But instead, they appear to be getting worse.  According to Wolf Richter, continuing claims under all state and federal programs were way up last week…

Total continued claims for unemployment insurance (UI) under all state and federal programs rose by 380,000, to 29.6 million people (not seasonally adjusted), the highest since August 1, according to the Department of Labor this morning. This was the second weekly increase in a row, after the 2.2-million jump last week.

At any other time in American history, the numbers that were just reported would be considered “catastrophic”, but we have been getting these sorts of catastrophic numbers for so long that we have become desensitized to them.

But at least the unemployment numbers are not as bad as they were earlier this year, and other economic figures seem to have hit a bit of a plateau as well.

So for the moment, there is relative calm, but it won’t last for very long.

If you feel like something really, really bad is about to happen, you are definitely not alone.  There are countless others that are also waiting for “the other shoe to drop”, and I believe that it could literally happen at any time.

But for now, we wait.

I would encourage you to enjoy these remaining days of summer while you still can.  This weekend, put some burgers on the grill and enjoy some time with your family.  Unfortunately, there are many Americans that are under such financial stress that it is hard to enjoy much of anything right now.  In fact, one recent survey found that 50 percent or more of the households in some of our largest cities are currently facing “serious financial problems”

There’s no question the coronavirus pandemic has forced many Americans into financial hardship, but a new NPR/Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey provided a clearer picture of the extent of the struggles in the United States’ four largest cities.

At least half of all households in those cities — 53 percent in New York City, 56 percent in Los Angeles, 50 percent in Chicago, and 63 percent in Houston — reported facing serious financial problems, including depleted savings, problems paying credit card bills, and affording medical bills.

How can that be possible if we are in the midst of a tremendous “recovery”?

Of course, the truth is that we aren’t in any sort of a recovery, but at least things are a whole lot better than they will be after the upcoming election.

I had such an ominous feeling coming into 2020, and I shared this repeatedly with my readers, and now I have such an ominous feeling about the rest of 2020 and beyond.

In particular, I am extremely concerned about what will happen in November.  No matter who is ultimately declared the winner, the other side is going to be convinced that the election was stolen from them and that is likely to throw our nation into a state of chaos.

And we are already being told that we probably will not know the winner until long after election day.  That period of uncertainty is almost certainly going to spark more civil unrest, and I believe that faith in the integrity of our elections will be greatly shaken.

Before I end this article, there is one more thing that I wanted to mention that I found to be extremely interesting.  This year the Federal Reserve has been buying up mortgage bonds worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and according to Mish Shedlock the Fed now owns nearly a third of that entire market…

  • The Fed has snapped up $1 trillion of mortgage bonds since March. It bought around $300 billion of the bonds in each of March and April, and since then has been buying about $100 billion a month.
  • The Fed now owns almost a third of bonds backed by home loans in the U.S.
  • Buying the securities has pushed mortgage rates lower, with the average 30-year rate falling to 2.91% as of last week from 3.3% in early February.
  • Morgan Stanley analysts pointed out in late March that the buying was running at eight times the pace seen in prior episodes of Fed purchasing under programs known as quantitative easing.

No matter who wins the election, the direction of the Fed is not going to change.  They are going to continue to engage in exceedingly reckless manipulation of the markets, and that is going to have very serious long-term implications.

All around us, we can see our society being thrown into convulsions as all of our systems begin to fail.

I know that so many of you out there are feeling the exact same way that I am.

A sense of anticipation hangs in the air, and millions of people are waiting for the next big crisis to erupt.

Ivanka Trump Says She’ll “Take The Vaccine” on The View

President Donald Trump’s daughter claims she will be vaccinated with the coronavirus concoction on the TV show The View after Joy Behar announced she has no intention of taking a Covid-19 vaccine before Ivanka Trump. Not only will Ms. Trump attempt to convince us to take the vaccine, but she also says we should “trust” the FDA.

Trust the FDA? Yes, she wrote that on Twitter. Everyone, including politicians on the right (who want to use the military to roll out this vaccine in a “powerful way”), wants you to get vaccinated. This should be a major red flag.

According to RT, most of the reactions to Trump’s offer have been slams against her and her father, she was offered some support by her brother, Donald Trump Jr, among others.

Trump declared this week that a Covid-19 vaccine could be ready by October and will be “very safe and effective.” Critics have pushed back against his claim, citing a rushed process as a reason to be distrustful of the efficacy of any such vaccine.

“As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America, in case we don’t know this because I looked all this up for you, the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries,” Behar said on Wednesday. –RT

This is all just more propaganda using the left/right paradigm illusion to convince you to suspend your critical thinking, roll up your sleeve, and take the shot.  Even with all of the politicians on all sides demanding we get vaccinated, around half of the country is still skeptical.

Trump Administration Is Stockpiling 3 Different Types Of COVID-19 Vaccines

President Trump himself has offered to take the vaccine “first or last,” depending on what is better for his political standing. “Well, you know the way it works. If I’m the first one they’ll say ‘He’s so selfish. He wanted to get the vaccine first. Then other people would say ‘Hey, that’s a very brave thing to do,’” he told Fox News in July. “I would absolutely if they wanted me to and thought it was right, I’d take it first or I’d take it last,” he added.

Sadly, this is just more evidence that they are all in  on it and they all want you to get vaccinated.

“Demand Is Insane”: NYC Movers Turn People Away, Suburban & Rural Housing Snagged Up, As Big City COVID-Exodus Accelerates

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zerohedge. 

The pandemic-induced summer of escape from New York continues at a moment violent crime is on the rise, restaurant and public venue closures make the city less appealing, public transit is reeling in debt, and remote working set-ups are giving those with means greater mobility.

More worrisome trends… or rather signs of the times signaling that for many the gentrified Big Apple has as one family recently put it reached its “expiration date”. Two separate NY Times reports on Sunday detailed that moving companies are so busy they’re in an unprecedented situation of having to turn people away, while simultaneously the suburbs are witnessing an explosion in demand “unlike any in recent memory”.

And then there’s fresh data showing that during the pandemic Americans are fast getting the hell out of the more expensive “real estate meccas” of New York and New Jersey.

First, New York City moving are reporting a rush of customers so high it feels like “move out day on a college campus”:

According to FlatRate Moving, the number of moves it has done has increased more than 46 percent between March 15 and August 15, compared with the same period last year. The number of those moving outside of New York City is up 50 percent — including a nearly 232 percent increase to Dutchess County and 116 percent increase to Ulster County in the Hudson Valley.

“The first day we could move, we left,” a dentist was cited as saying of the moment movers were declared an “essential service” by Gov. Cuomo late March. Her family moved to Pennsylvania where they had relatives.

And second, the Times details the unprecedented boom in the suburban real estate as an increasingly online workforce is fed up with closures in the city, losing its appeal and vibrancy.

July alone witnessed a whopping 44% increase in home sales among suburban counties near NYC compared to the same month last year, as the report details:

Over three days in late July, a three-bedroom house in East Orange, N.J., was listed for sale for $285,000, had 97 showings, received 24 offers and went under contract for 21 percent over that price.

On Long Island, six people made offers on a $499,000 house in Valley Stream without seeing it in person after it was shown on a Facebook Live video. In the Hudson Valley, a nearly three-acre property with a pool listed for $985,000 received four all-cash bids within a day of having 14 showings.

Since the pandemic began, the suburbs around New York City, from New Jersey to Westchester County to Connecticut to Long Island, have been experiencing enormous demand for homes of all prices, a surge that is unlike any in recent memory, according to officials, real estate agents and residents.

They’re not just fleeing for the suburbs or upstate, but also to the significantly cheaper and lower cost of living areas of the country like Texas, Florida, South Carolina, and Oregon, or to rural areas.

COVID-19 is fast reviving American mobility on scales reminiscent of the mid-20th century. Bloomberg describes separately that “Far more people moved to Vermont, Idaho, Oregon, and South Carolina than left during the pandemic, according to data provided to Bloomberg News by United Van Lines.”

Two charts via Bloomberg:

“On the other hand, the reverse was true for New York and New Jersey, which saw residents moving to Florida, Texas and other Sunbelt states between March and July,” the report finds.

General fear of living in densely populated areas, better enterprise video communications platforms making possible fully remote workplaces which in some cases are ‘canceling’ the traditional office space altogether, and a lack of nightlife or entertainment allure of big cities is driving the exodus.

In addition to the aforementioned states, “Illinois, Connecticut and California, three other states with big urban populations, were also among those losing out during the pandemic,” according to United Van Lines data.

Americans banker puppet chaos Commodities dollar crash Dollar Destruction Donald Trump Doug Casey economic elections Emergency Preparedness experts Federal Reserve fiat currency Financial Forecasting Headline News Indoctrination Intelwars left-right paradigm livelihoods lives Money Creation nasty and chaotic Precious Metals Silver Social Stocks United States Youtube

Think It’s Bad Now? “It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins, The Dollar Is Going To Be DESTROYED!”

In an interview with SGT Report, Doug Casey explains that we’re in the midst of the “greater depression” and the real chaos, both societal and economic, is dead ahead.  If we think things are bad now, just wait until after the election, because “it doesn’t matter who wins, the dollar is going to be destroyed!”

Most of our readers already understand the dollar is being destroyed and it’s being done on purpose by the Federal Reserve to bring on their new fully centralized, unbacked, digital dollar, which will be a system of complete control and enslavement. When the dollar finally falls for good, things will get so chaotic, it’ll be unimaginable. Casey says we’ll see financial chaos, economic chaos, and societal chaos.

This is not a matter of if the dollar will crash, but a matter of when, it won’t make any difference who is chosen to be the next banker puppet (president) when that finally happens.

Casey says that gold is still one of the best ways to protect your wealth.  Preparedness will help you get through the chaos of a destroyed dollar.  Most people won’t know what’s coming, but those who have precious metals will have a better chance of getting through.  Silver is a “high tech industrial element” and could end up being in high demand.  Casey predicts silver will of over $50 per ounce.

These next few years are going to be chaotic.  But you can try to become as wealthy as you can to insulate yourself from the chaos. Casey says old and silver are the best way to do that.

SGT Report asks Casey about the democrats destroying the dollar and Donald Trump swooping in as a savior and returning us to sound money. Casey says: “Well, I wouldn’t plan my life around Trump doing anything that’s terribly intelligent economically, although I very much appreciate his efforts to deregulate the economy and fighting against the deep state.”  Casey then says he doesn’t necessarily think Trump will win.

As we’ve stated before, presidents are chosen, and if Trump can give the Federal Reserve what they want, and as long as he won’t stand in the way of their destruction of the current system as we know it,  he will be reelected. The economy is going to get much worse by the time the election comes, and that will weih heavily on voters.

Both sides will be cheating, and “I’d gear up for stormy weather,” says Casey of these times leading up to election.
