New York Governor DEMANDS Compliance With His Totalitarian Rules

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces that the state will enact “aggressive enforcement” of COVID-19 protocols.  Cuomo has descended into a full-blown dictator and says he will close non-compliant businesses and schools.

Beginning this week, New Yorkers will be subjected to a police state and dictatorship never before thought possible in the “land of the free.” Queens, Brooklyn, Orange, and Rockland counties have all seen recent increases in positive coronavirus cases, which means politicians are taking new draconian measures against the people to maintain their grip on power.  These areas will be the target of direct enforcement,” ensuring businesses and citizens are abiding by mask mandates, social distancing orders, and other regulations in place in the state, according to a report by RT. 

“Local governments have not done an effective job of enforcement in these hotspot ZIP codes. [New York State] will be doing aggressive enforcement starting tomorrow,” Cuomo tweeted on Sunday after a conference call with members of the press. “As we saw with bars and restaurants when the state initiated enforcement actions compliance greatly increased.”

As far as looting and rioting go, those will likely be left to destroy whatever they want.  But police will be aggressively enforcing the draconian COVID-19 rules shoved down the throats of the public. This is a sad dystopian nightmare for the people of New York.

The boot is on the neck of New York business owners, and those who survive this horrific tyranny will be the few fortunate ones. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio also announced on Sunday he is seeking the governor’s approval to shut down schools and non-essential businesses in nine zip codes in Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods where there has been an increase in positive cases. 

“We’re having an extraordinary problem – something we haven’t seen since spring,’’ the mayor told reporters of the uptick in positive cases.

citizens Debt economic growth experts Federal Reserve Forecasting Government Income taxes Intelwars national assets tax payers traders unsustainable Wealth

BLINK OF AN EYE: Crashing -20% – IS IT IMMINENT?

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends

People love to focus on the NATIONAL DEBT and on DEBT per citizen or taxpayer, and they’re right – the FEDERAL DEBT is stupid, crazy, and unsustainable.

As of this writing, each citizen would owe $81,000 if the government tried to close the debt down by collecting EQUALLY from each. Of course, not everyone is an active taxpayer, so when done in that way, it comes out to $214,844/taxpayer since about 1/3 of Americans pay income taxes. The interest component on the debt per adult comes out to about $14,000, had the government wanted to just pay that.

Let’s look at the FLIP-SIDE of this debt equation, which is what getting into this MONSTROUS DEBT has allowed the United States to create: total NATIONAL ASSETS stand at a record $125tn, which is $381k/citizen!

Said differently, if wealth was COMPLETELY REDISTRIBUTED equally among all, debt would be wiped out altogether from the government balance sheet and each citizen would have $300,000 in their pocket.

What you see above is the reason why America works, will continue to PRODUCE WEALTH, and why mistakes are PART OF GROWTH; it works because THINKING AND DOING is rewarded or punished, thus people improve and take personal responsibility, not because everyone is rewarded for just breathing.

Do you know what would happen if America did its WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION experiment?

In 20-30 years, it would be back to what it is today…

In a free market system, some individuals have CRACKED THE FORMULA for creating value, so much so that their net worth is tremendous.

What these people are learning now is that their BIGGEST CHALLENGE is how to create additional value by giving their FUNDS TO CAUSES they believe in. Said differently, the rewards for creating value today are SO LARGE that the rewards are more than one needs to live his dream life and the surplus can be donated towards productive enterprises.

I want you to BE INSPIRED to reach those levels as well!

A great man is one that can earn as much as he needs to live a FULL LIFE with no excess. If he creates RESERVES, he can deploy his HIGHEST DUTY, and that is to reinvest those extra funds in ADVANCING HUMANITY.

Purely capitalistic men believe the way to do it is by investing in businesses that aim to SOLVE PROBLEMS. I, for one, believe it’s about investing in the YOUTH – the future generations.

The TWO CHARTS show you what capitalism is all about: individuals making DECISIONS that have repercussions, both positive and negative, depending on what’s happening. If a government tries to TAKE AWAY the personal responsibility that each has for his lot in life, it will produce STAGNATION and a lack of innovation. Greed, fear, reasoning powers, accurate thinking, herd mentality and deep analysis; these create the market drama and lead to results – there is NO REPLACEMENT to true ingenuity of thought.

Do you love being able to turn on your air conditioner in the summer?

Had it not been for ONE PERSON taking responsibility for solving that issue for the rest of us, we’d still be sweating all day and all night.

Innovation is BORN FROM DISCOMFORT.

Many traders are about to find out that greed is good, but ONLY WHEN coupled with sound reasoning.

You cannot BET THE FARM with everything you’ve got on every idea and we believe that millions of people are about to RE-LEARN that valuable lesson.

We find it hard to envision a -20% move down, but we ACTUALLY ANTICIPATE a few (2 or 3) corrections following each other in the space of two or three months between them, each SHAKING OUT more traders with each passing time.

If you’ve AVOIDED tech thus far, know that 3D printing, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, genome sequencing, energy storage, blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, and their ANCILLARY INDUSTRIES understand that valuations are STILL CHEAP for a select few of them!

Expect an incredible list of companies to look into from us in a NEW special report!

Americans paralyzed by fear. commands brutality citizens Compliance control Fear follow orders freedom Greg Abbott Headline News human rights Intelwars liberty panic peace Ron Paul Shelley Luther stand up tyranny Virus

Authoritarians Using Coronavirus Fear to Destroy America

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. 

A Fresno, California waffle restaurant dared to open its doors for business this weekend to the delight of a long line of customers, who waited up to two hours for the “privilege” of willingly spending their money in a business happy to serve them breakfast on Mother’s Day. This freedom of voluntary transactions is the core of what we used to call our free society. But in an America paralyzed by fear – ramped up by a mainstream media that churns out propaganda at a level unparalleled in history – no one is allowed to enjoy themselves.

Thankfully everyone carries a smartphone these days and can record and upload the frequent violations of our Constitutional liberties. In the case of the waffle restaurant, thanks to a cell phone video we saw the police show up in force and try to push through the crowd waiting outside. An elderly man who was next in line to enter was indignant, complaining that he had been waiting two hours to eat at the restaurant and was not about to step aside while the police shut down the place. The police proceeded to violently handcuff and arrest the man, dragging him off while his wife followed sadly behind him to the police car.

It is hard not to be disgusted by government enforcers who would brutally drag an elderly man away from a restaurant for the “crime” of wanting to take his wife out for breakfast on Mother’s Day. A virus far more deadly than the coronavirus is spreading from Washington down to the local city hall. Tinpot dictators are ruling by decree while federal, state, and local legislators largely stand by and watch as the US Constitution they swore to protect goes up in smoke.

Politicians with perfect haircuts issue “executive orders” that anyone cutting hair for mere private citizens must be arrested. In Texas a brave salon owner willingly went to jail for the “crime” of re-opening her business in defiance of “executive orders.” To add insult to injury, Governor Greg Abbott very quickly condemned the one-week jail sentence of salon owner Shelley Luther – but the officers who arrested her were only carrying out Abbott’s own orders!

First, we were told we had to shut down the country to “flatten the curve” so that hospitals were not overwhelmed by coronavirus patients. When most hospitals were nowhere near overwhelmed, and in fact were laying off thousands of healthcare workers because there were no patients, they moved the goalposts and said we cannot have our freedom back until a vaccine was available to force on us or the virus completely disappeared – neither of which is likely to happen anytime soon.

Many politicians clearly see the creeping totalitarianism but lack the courage to speak out. Thankfully, patriots like Shelley Luther are demonstrating the courage our political leaders lack.

When Patrick Henry famously said “give me liberty or give me death” in 1775, he didn’t add under his breath “unless a virus shows up.” If we wish to reclaim our freedoms we will have to fight – peacefully – for them. As Thomas Paine wrote in 1776, “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

The Science of Fear: How The Elitists Use it to Control Us & How to Break Free

The Coronavirus, Fear, and Elitist Driven Market Insanity

This article was originally published by William Murray at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity

Fear is contagious: Fear is more contagious than any virus could ever be, and the media has really fed the fear factor when it comes to the coronavirus.

I am by no means playing down the deadly Covid-19 coronavirus. It is a killer. Depending on the reporting nation, it appears that on average 3.4 percent of every 100 who catch the coronavirus die. Those are not good odds.

Adding to the problem, the Center for Disease Control allowed the virus to spread in the United States out of an act of pure stupidity. The CDC refused to allow testing of those with coronavirus symptoms unless they had visited certain areas of China. And what about those who were exposed at airports, restaurants, and stores? People died of the coronavirus in the United States before the CDC diagnosed a single case.

Because most of those infected are asymptomatic the scope of the spread of Covid-19 could only have been accurately measured by random testing. But months after the first actual warning from China there were not even enough test kits produced in the United States to test those with symptoms. Random testing still is impossible. Even citizens returning from hotspots in the first half of March were not tested at airports.

The headlines about seven dead in Seattle the first week of March emptied out stores and brought commerce to a standstill in that city. Shops and restaurants emptied out. With no guidance from federal, state or local officials the panic buying spread throughout the United States endangering the lives of millions of people as they coughed, sneezed and fought each other over toilet paper in Costco stores nationwide.

When the CDC began to test those with symptoms who had not been to China, the numbers exploded. As President Trump pointed out in his announcement most of those coronavirus cases came from Europe. But the CDC did not test anyone coming from Europe with the symptoms of the coronavirus despite the headline news of the virus outbreak there. Why?

Elitism: The problem at every level of the federal, state and local governments is elitism. All the bureaucrats think they are far smarter and superior to those they serve, and as a result, they come to very intellectually stupid conclusions. Romans 1:22 describes the government, business, and academic elites well: “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” (KJV)

Stock market reactions were bizarre even for that fantasy world. The DOW was down over 1,000 one day, back up over 1,000 the next, and then on Monday, March 16th down 12 percent, the worst day since 1987. The White House and the Federal Reserve announced the coronavirus would be fought with interest rate cuts.

Interest rates went to zero and the Federal Reserve pumped in $1.5 trillion before March 16th and then another $700 billion the day after.

WHAT? Using interest rate cuts and QE (Quantitative Easing) from the Fed to fight a killer virus?    NO … an interest rate hike to save the stock market from the coronavirus fear factor. The Federal Reserve also doubled down on overnight loans to help banks cover cash shortfall. The markets crashed anyway.

The bank liquidity problem predated the coronavirus. The bank bailout has been going on since last September. The Federal Reserve printed half a trillion dollars to save banks over the last six months. Does that make sense? Most of that money went to cover loans for more stock buybacks and operations of big corporations. The market plunge now requires even more Federal Reserve money printing to cover losses.

The Fed money could not bring the Markets back up because corporations had stopped “buybacks.” It was the buyback of their own stocks by corporations that drove the market up over the last decade or so, not value. Corporations like Exxon – all the big ones – bought back hundreds of billions a dollars a year of their own stock to drive up the share price for investors, and I might add, to increase the bonuses by millions of dollars a year of the CEOs of those companies.

The collective corporations in the S&P bought back more than 100 percent of their total free cash flow in 2019 and for many years before that. Some companies, even in the DOW, paid out more to buy back stock than they made in profit. They borrowed money to buy back stock and drive up the markets.

Total buybacks in 2018 were $806 billion and in 2019 an estimated $710 billion. All down the tubes now, lost in a few days of panic selling. Not enough left of it to buy a coffee at 7-11.

Remember Boeing Aircraft and the 737 Max problem of two crashes that grounded the planes worldwide? Over a period of six years (2013-2019) Boeing paid out $17 billion in dividends and bought back $43 billion of its own stock to drive up the stock price. That $60 billion came to 140 percent of profit for those years.

The CEO of Boeing received tens of millions of dollars for raising Boeing stock value! When he was finally forced out because of the 737 Max crashes he was given $18 million to leave as a reward for cutting production corners and artificially driving up the cost of the stock.

Corporations, like Netflix, that have never made a profit had shares trading at hundreds of dollars.

The markets are so important to the elites that President Trump along with the House Democrats and Republican Senate will do anything to get people buying and cash flowing so the big corporations can restart the buybacks they had to stop because of Covid-19 loss of business.

United Airlines used over 80 percent of its free cash flow in 2019 to buy back stock and now has gone begging for money from President Trump and the Congress to continue operations.

The elites who run the businesses and the bureaucracies are worried about their status and will do anything to keep the markets flying high. Their wealth is based on a fantasy bubble that something like the coronavirus could pop. The elites were so fearful they pretended there was no problem until the problem was too big to hide. Now the public must suffer.

Some final numbers: As of March 17th, the Fed has tossed $2.2 trillion into the whirlpool sewer of the American stock markets. The money could have gone to rebuild the entire rail network in the United States or to relieve the roads of congestion. The money could have been used to repair and replace the thousands of bridges in the United States that are deficient.

OR … That $2.2 trillion could have been used to increase the number of hospital beds per 1,000 persons in the United States up to Chinese or Russian numbers. Yes, the United States has just 2.5 or so hospital beds per 1,000 population in the United States, less than even Turkey. The United States ranks 32nd and for the Covid-19 pandemic, the tents are starting to go up.

“Greatest nation in the world.” Agreed. We have an unequaled military that can go anywhere and do anything. It should be able to — the government prints nearly a trillion dollars a year to pay for it. “Greatest nation in the world” starts to sound flat when the roads, bridges, rail systems and patched together hospital systems are examined under strain.

The Elites, the top 10 percent that own or control 80 percent of the wealth of the nation, have failed us. That includes not just the billionaires, but the Donald Trumps, Joe Bidens, Nancy Pelosis, Mitch McConnells along with the bankers, brokers, CEOs and academic leaders who have produced so many college graduates who now work at convenience stores.

They built the system to do what it does … Create false value in stocks because capital gain is taxed at a far lower rate than dividend income. The tax system was designed to do what the CEOs did to raise the value of their stock at the expense of quality, safety, and jobs.

The political, financial and educational systems have been broken by blood-sucking elites and the time for true populism is now. The nation belongs to the people, not to the elites, and now is the time for the people to take back their nation.

Libertarian populism, the fundamentals as taught by Frederick Hayek in the Constitution of Liberty must finally be turned to for the true freedom the people want and deserve.

Bush Administration CIA museum citizens Device dragonfly foia Government Headline News Intelwars mass surveillance Patriot Act spied on spying tracked United States

During The 70’s, The CIA Created A “Robot Dragonfly Spy”

The United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is well known for its desire to spy on, track, and contact mass surveillance in order to store information on every single human being possible. And now, thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request, it’s known that they created a robot dragonfly to spy on us.

Newly-released CIA documents show how the espionage agency developed a robot dragonfly spy. The tiny aerial surveillance device – known as the “insectothopter” – was built in the 1970s according to the CIA Museum, where it has been displayed for 16 years. But blueprints for the robotic insect were released this week by the U.S. spy agency to the website The Black Vault. Those blueprints reveal the finely honed microengineering behind the little spy machine.

They show how CIA engineers had built miniature listening devices by 1970, but getting them over obstacles such as an embassy wall remained a major obstacle. Many know that the U.S. government, under the Patriot Act, began to spy relentlessly on our every move and store all of the information that they could on us.

When it was first revealed that the Bush Administration had implemented a secret program of warrantless wiretaps and domestic spying on US citizens, few Americans knew that all of this had happened before. In the early 1970s, it was revealed that US government agencies, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, and IRS, were being used as part of a deliberate plan to infiltrate and disrupt political opponents, and this plan had continued for 20 years under four different Presidents, both Democratic and Republican. This report by the Senate Select Committee (the Church Committee) details the elaborate efforts by the FBI, CIA, and NSA to spy on Americans by tapping their telephones, by intercepting and copying their mail, and even by burglarizing their homes (known as “black bag jobs”). In response to this report, Congress established the FISA courts that Bush bypassed when he directed the NSA to once again spy on Americans without court approval or oversight.

“The ultimate demonstration of controlled powered flight has not yet been achieved,” the CIA chief scientist, who helped develop the robotic dragonfly wrote.

In the end, the robot dragonfly – developed 40 years before unmanned drones – never flew and the spy agency closed the project, but they didn’t stop their quest to find new ways to conduct mass surveillance.
