Nearly a third of Americans want to break up the United States into like-minded countries: Poll

The divide between Americans seems to be widening in recent years, and the political schism doesn’t appear to be narrowing any time soon. The major partisan divide in the country has gotten to the point that many Americans have contemplated a national divorce because they believe there are far too many ideological differences to bridge the line of demarcation.

An eye-opening poll found that a shocking percentage of Americans are in favor of the dissolution of the United States. According to a new Bright Line Watch survey, nearly a third of Americans want to break up the United States and create smaller, like-minded countries.

Between Jan. 28 and Feb. 8, the 2,700 poll participants were asked:

Some people say the divisions within our country have grown so deep that we would be better off dividing into more like-minded regions that would govern themselves separately. Do you support or oppose the idea of the United States dividing into more than one nation?

The survey found that 29% (10% strongly, 19% somewhat) of Americans were in favor of the dissolution of the United States into like-minded regions. There were noticeable differences based on political party lines and geography. Surprisingly, 37% of independents were most inclined for the country to go its separate ways. There were 35% of Republicans who wanted to secede, followed by 21% of Democrats who wanted their own country of like-minded individuals.

Bright Line Watch proposed to divide the U.S. into five regional unions based on geography and political affiliation:

  • Pacific: California, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska
  • Mountain: Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico
  • South: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee
  • Heartland: Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Nebraska
  • Northeast: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia

When respondents were asked how likely they would be to support joining these hypothetical regional unions, 33% of the South and the Pacific said they would. There were 50% of Republicans in the red South region who were ready to create their own nation, and there were 41% of Democrats in the blue Pacific union who wanted to separate from the rest of the country.

The temptation of separation might have been heightened in recent years by social media that breeds tribalism and echo chambers, while devaluing any sense of nuance. Another agitator could be the click-thirsty media that creates hyperbolic headlines that are at times antagonistic in an effort to grab eyeballs in the bustling and oversaturated social media ecosystem.

The sense of Republican and Democratic lawmakers seemingly unwilling to reach across the aisle could also spread divisiveness. The American populace regularly engages in disputes over reality, facts, science, and election results, which may galvanize calls for a divided states of America. All of these factors could fuel a lack of unity, an atmosphere where citizens distrust each other and harbor resentment of each other.

There have been fruitless secession movements in recent years in several states, including California, South Carolina, and Texas.

A 2017 Pew Research Center report revealed the widening divide between Republicans and Democrats. The study examined the partisan divide on political values between 1994 and 2017. The research discovered that the fractionalization between the two political parties has never been worse.

The partisan gap and disagreements regarding the topics of government aid to needy, racial discrimination, immigration, and diplomacy through strength have become farther apart since 1994, according to the study.

Biden’s Presidency Will Be A Catalyst For Secession – And Perhaps Civil War

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.us. 

Over the past few months, I have written a handful of articles that discussed what would probably happen if Joe Biden actually entered the White House and launched his administration. My initial belief was that Trump would refuse to concede and that this would be a trigger for national chaos blamed on conservatives, but I have also noted that Biden’s entry is almost just as disruptive, as it sends a signal to the political left that it is “open season” on anyone that disagrees with their ideology.

Of course, conservatives are not going to simply sit still and be purged and abused, they are going to strike back, and this sets the stage for a number of events and outcomes, some of which are completely unpredictable, even for establishment globalists.

First, though, we need to address how Biden and the globalists are going to create chaos so that they can then demand their own brand of “order”.

In my article ‘A Biden Presidency Will Mean A Faster US Collapse’, published in October, I outlined why the ongoing economic crisis will accelerate in the wake of a Biden takeover. More specifically, I predicted that Biden would implement a federal covid lockdown, probably within the first year of his presidency, similar to the Level 4 lockdowns implemented in Europe and Australia. Biden may lure Americans into complacency with promises of “relief” and fewer restrictions in his first couple of months, but he will then use the rather convenient news of “covid mutations” to bring in even harsher mandates.

Such a lockdown, if Americans submit, would mean an even larger spike in unemployment, a loss of hundreds of thousands of small businesses as well as a huge loss in tax revenues for some states (mostly blue states).

Another scenario is that Biden leaves the lockdowns in the hands of state governments, but pursues a nationwide program for medical passports. The passport, of course, would require people to take the vaccine and accept contact tracing apps on their phones; meaning 24/7 surveillance on the public. At least 30% of Americans have said in polling that they will refuse the vaccines outright. Another 60% have said they are wary of the vaccines and need proof of their effectiveness. So, the medical passports will lead to millions of people being denied participation in the mainstream economy and collapse happens anyway.

In other words, the elites are going to try to hold the economy hostage while telling the public that if we don’t accept medical tyranny it will be OUR FAULT if the system breaks down.

The economic crisis, however, started long before the pandemic, long before Biden, and long before Trump. It has been building since the credit crash of 2008, and in the 12 years since, the Federal Reserve and other central banks have been pumping out trillions in stimulus while encouraging non-stop debt accumulation. Right before the beginning of the pandemic, the US was suffering from the highest corporate debt in history, the highest consumer debt in history as well as the highest national debt in history.

What we are witnessing right now is the final phase of a collapse scenario that was more than a decade in the making, and Biden is about to help finish the job.

Biden will no doubt seek to hyperinflate the dollar in the name of offsetting the losses and keep things afloat for a short time, but the real agenda will be to trigger price spikes in goods as well as eventually killing the dollar altogether. No amount of stimulus will stop the crash that has already been set in motion; the bailout measures from this point on are Kabuki theater, a show put on for the masses to make us believe that the government and the banks “did everything they could” to save us. The elites have no intention of stalling or stopping the collapse; their “great reset” demands it.

One’s initial assumption would be that Biden would then take the blame for the economic crisis, but it appears that the establishment is going to set up a Herbert Hoover narrative and lay all the blame squarely on Trump and conservatives. In the past I have noted that Trump’s trajectory was very similar to Herbert Hoover’s, in that he was a business mogul and Republican that pushed for corporate tax cut policies and also extensive tariffs.

Hoover also served only one term, taking the blame for the crash of 1929 and the advent of the Great Depression, even though the crash was primarily caused by the Federal Reserve’s ultra-low interest rates and easy money, followed by a series of rate hikes (a fact which former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke would later openly admit to in 2002). This launched the three-term dominion of Franklin D. Roosevelt, one of the most communistic presidents in our history and the initiator of socialist programs which have since buried the American public in Quadrillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities.

Biden’s latest statements indicate he will be introducing numerous executive orders to “correct the mistakes of the Trump administration”, thereby implanting the idea that whatever happens next is Trump’s fault. The “Reset” globalists and their central banking partners will have to bring down the US economy very quickly under a Biden White House. Why? Because if they wait, or if they try to drag out the collapse and the worst happens a few years down the road, Biden and the globalists will get the blame. They MUST crash the old world order now so that Trump and conservatives can be saddled with the consequences.

The strategy seems to be this: Demonize conservatives as much as possible as quickly as possible so that our purge from social platforms can be rationalized. When we are incapable of defending ourselves in the public sphere because we have been removed from the internet, the establishment and leftists can blame us for everything going wrong. The public would have no access to any other points of view or contradictory facts and evidence because the alternative media will be gone. We become the monsters, the bogeymen, and the source of all American suffering.

We didn’t fall into the trap of supporting martial law measures during the BLM riots, so this must be Plan B.

Will their plan work? I doubt it. Just as the globalist rollout of the pandemic lockdowns and medical tyranny is failing to gain traction in the US as huge numbers of people refuse to take the questionable vaccines, I suspect millions upon millions of Americans are already savvy to the propaganda schemes of the establishment and will not buy-in. But, that doesn’t mean the elites won’t try it anyway.

In early November in Issue #47 of my newsletter, The Wild Bunch Dispatch, I war-gamed the Biden scenario extensively and concluded that if he was to enter the White House it would have to be followed by a massive erasure of conservative media platforms from the internet. I stated that:

If Biden does indeed enter the White House and take control of the presidency, expect certain consequences right away: A complete full spectrum censorship campaign of conservative news sources will be undertaken by tech companies and government. There is no way Biden and the democrats could keep control of the situation while conservatives are able to share information in real-time. Do not be surprised if web providers suddenly start kicking conservative sites off their servers, just as Bitchute (a YouTube alternative) was kicked off their server for 24 hours on election night.”

This is already happening, and Biden hasn’t even stepped foot into the role of “commander and chief” yet. The coordinated effort by Big Tech to remove Parler, a Twitter alternative, from the web completely was not all that surprising. Luckily, Parler will be back up and running by the end of the month, but the censorship campaign is only going to get worse from here on. Biden WILL support and defend the censorship efforts by Big Tech and the fascist marriage between government and the corporate world will be complete.

To summarize, the globalists have to silence us before they can effectively demonize us. The truth is on our side; facts and logic are on our side. They can’t win the war of ideas if we are allowed to speak; this is why they are so desperate to silence us.

Sweeping gun control measures will be issued by Biden, but only after the conservative purge from the internet is close to finished. If conservatives are isolated from one another in terms of communication, this makes it harder to organize a defense against aggressive gun confiscation. Biden will most likely try to exploit Red Flag gun laws first, this would allow federal agencies to declare anyone to be “a threat to public safety” without due process, and have their guns taken away preemptively.

There is an obvious outcome to all of these actions and I don’t think it’s far fetched to suggest that conservative counties and states will demand secession. At the very least, conservatives are going to continue to relocate to red states and red counties, just so they can continue to do business and make a living without government interference. There’s no way that most conservatives controlled states or counties are going to submit to federal lockdown mandates or medical passports, and economies in conservative regions are going to remain stable because of this while blue states are going to crumble.

Biden will seek to retaliate against conservative controlled areas of the country in response.

There comes a point when it is impossible for those that value freedom, logic, and reason to live side-by-side with those that are irrationally obsessed with control. The American constitutional framework in particular was designed to prevent collectivism from overriding individual liberties, but if the system is sabotaged through subversion and the Bill of Rights is violated, then maintaining the system is no longer plausible.

The best option for a number of reasons is to separate. Secession is often referred to as “running away” from a cultural problem, but this is an ignorant way of looking at it.

We are reaching a stage right now in the US where it will be virtually impossible to voice political concerns without risking retribution. If you are a conservative, you will be targeted.

If conservatives and moderates migrate away from leftist controlled areas and congregate in red states or red counties, then it will be difficult for leftists to attack them for voicing their views. If your employer is a conservative, then he’s not going to care if a leftist mob demands you be fired. If you own a business in a conservative community, then the people that live there will continue as your customers regardless of what leftists say about you.

Conservatives and moderates MUST start to physically separate from the political left. We must remove ourselves from the blood-sucking parasites that have attached themselves to us. This allows us to remain free to think and speak as we like, and it takes all power away from leftists to hurt us by disrupting our means of making a living.

Secession is a more extreme measure, but it WILL become necessary if leftists refuse to accept that we are no longer participating in their games of fear and subterfuge. Leftists are collectivist by nature, and collectivists see people as property. Walking away is not an option in their minds. So, though we might successfully separate, this would only be the beginning of the battle.

The important thing is to first make sure that conservatives KNOW that there are places they can go where their civil rights are valued and defended. If conservatives feel completely isolated and alone, many will give up, go dark, and pray they are not discovered. This is unacceptable.

The advantage of secession is clear; by separating, conservatives force the enemy to come to them, on the ground they have prepared. The leftists will be the aggressors by default. They will try to present the situation otherwise, but it won’t matter. We will have the moral high ground as well as the superior strategic position.

There are multiple narratives that will be used to demonize the secession movement beyond the terrorism angle. In particular, I think the government and the media will try to tie secession to “foreign entities”. In other words, they will claim the secession movement is being funded or supported by Russia, or some other foreign power. This is what almost every government in history has done when faced with a viable secession or rebellion that could threaten their control – They accuse the people that want to separate of being agents for evil outsiders.

It doesn’t matter.

Conservatives cannot live with leftists, their cultism and zealotry have made it impossible. And, we will not live under a globalist tyranny built around their reset agenda. Separation allows us to consolidate for defense and protects us economically. It is the only way to ensure that we remain free.

The globalists and the leftists will try to stop us; they can’t help themselves. They are insane, after all. This will lead to a war many of us have been expecting for quite some time. At the very least, with separation and secession, we will be in the best possible position to stop them. If we remain isolated from each other, the fight will be over before it even begins.

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…

Alt-Market Calls It Again: As Predicted In July, 2020 Election Will Be Contested

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.us

Just as I successfully predicted the outcome of the 2016 election months in advance, my predictions on the 2020 election are now coming to pass. 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.

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.”

The bizarre behavior of vote counters in swing states, including PA where they stopped the count altogether overnight, indicates a program to incite national tensions and rage. The media refuses to call certain states for Trump even though he held clear leads while rushing to call states for Biden even though the count was far from unfinished will only exacerbate people’s suspicions that the election is being rigged or stolen.

Trump has said he will take the results to the Supreme Court and there is no doubt that recounts will be held in states like Michigan and Arizona. I continue to predict that Trump will stay in office despite the close election. I also predict that numerous fake ballots will be discovered during recounts only throwing gasoline on the fire and implicating Democrats in certain districts with fraud. Social justice leftists will surely try to riot in response, and Trump will call for martial law if the current scenario plays out as I expect.

The leftists will NOT accept the results of a Supreme Court decision in favor of Trump. Conservatives WILL NOT accept a Biden presidency. I think it’s clear where this is all headed. Stay tuned to Alt-Market for further analysis of the situation as it develops.

Civil War Commodities experts Federal Reserve finances Forecasting illogical behavior Intelwars Jerome Powell Joe Biden Major Event millennials money Navy SEALs Rescue The Fed

STOCKS DEMOLISHED: WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Oh man, yesterday proved what happens when there’s uncertainty about a major event, coupled with the CERTAINTY that no Federal Reserve is coming to your aid in the days ahead. This is education for the millennials, who have been trained to expect Daddy Jerome Powell to show up every time they load-up.

There is no BACKUP COMING, no Navy Seals coming to the rescue.

This is it; between now and perhaps the end of the year, price discovery is going to be real. We’re going to see exactly what big money and algorithms think about valuations with nothing to prop up markets.

Panic? YES. Volatility? SURE. Buying opportunities? 100%. Craziness and illogical behavior? EVERYWHERE you look.

This will be one of the most important investment months of your career. By acting responsibly, professionally, and with poise and composure, not with an inability to see positions going up and down like yoyos, one will be able to exploit others’ mental incapability to handle bullets firing above their heads.

For the next few days, the FED is out of the business of putting a floor on stocks; perhaps even more than just a few days…

The major indices are now RED for the month of October.

Famed hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who got his ba**s handed to him for shorting TSLA, is convinced the markets peaked on September 2nd. He believes the bubble is over and cites IPO mania, elevated valuations for the Robinhood app darlings, market concentration (FAANG), options trading volumes being off the charts, and the parabolic charts of some stocks.

On top of that, Rasmussen polled Americans and has issued a VICTORY ALERT for President Trump – what a turnaround.

The same polling company actually found that tens of millions of Americans likely believe that a REAL McCoy Civil War is a possibility.

Courtesy: visualcapitalist.com

This chart has a lot to do with how America got here!

The ability to create currency and segregate it so it ends up in the hands of the rich and powerful to decide what to do with it has led to expensive asset prices, record buyback programs, no wage growth, and the worst income gap in history.

Think about the process of currency creation: how dollars are born and get pushed into the banking system where the institution cherishes safety and lends to the big and the wealthy, STARVING the real economy.

I personally bought shares yesterday, according to the watch lists we have previously published, taking nibbles at companies, not whole chunks.

NEVER buy a full allocation right off the bat; one can be fully correct on the potential of the company and COMPLETELY WRONG on the timing. Being flexible with your purchases (being patient about the process) is the tactic of successful investors.

Nothing is “now or never” – NOTHING. There’s always time to think things through.

The odds are fully in your favor; let the game come to you.

As I see it, if Joe Biden wins (despite this huge controversy with Hunter’s compromised dealings with China), between now and January 2021, it’s going to get sickening at times since the world will be paralyzed until Inauguration Day. If Trump wins, I still don’t expect SMOOTH SAILING because I think a contested result is coming either way, but Trump won’t lose a recount if he wins the initial vote.

THIS IS EXCITING.

Civil War David barrett Donald Trump Election 2020 Expensify Intelwars Joe Biden

Expensify CEO sends unsolicited email to 10 million customers telling them to vote Biden or risk ‘civil war’

The CEO of Expensify, a software company that develops a system for businesses to file expenses, sent an unsolicited email to approximately 10 million customers Thursday evening urging them to vote for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the upcoming U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3 and claiming that the country would head toward civil war if Biden doesn’t win.

“Anything less than a vote for Biden is a vote against democracy,” CEO David Barrett wrote in an email with the subject line, “Protect democracy, vote Biden.”

“A vote for Trump is to endorse voter suppression, it really is very basic,” he added.

Barrett told his customers that any vote for President Donald Trump or a third-party candidate or even the decision not to vote was tantamount to “allowing democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight.”

Addressing the concerns of “those who disagree” with the email, Barrett wrote that the First Amendment gives Expensify a right to weigh in on the election and that his company’s success depends on Trump losing.

“Expensify depends on a functioning society and economy; not many expense reports get filed during a civil war,” Barrett wrote.

“All evidence suggests that another 4 (or as Trump has hinted — 8, or more?) years of Trump leadership will damage our democracy to such an extent, I’m obligated on behalf of shareholders to take any action I can to avoid it,” he continued. “I am confident our democracy (and Expensify) can survive a Biden presidency. I can’t say the same about Trump. It’s truly as simple as that.”

The email specifically accused Trump of taking anti-democratic actions to suppress the vote and dismisses counter arguments about voter fraud as unsupported by evidence.

“I wouldn’t be sending this email if this election were just about ‘normal issues’ — taxes, legislative priorities, health care, etc. But it isn’t. This election is a referendum on what limits, if any, we place on our elected leaders to govern us in a fair and representative way. This election will decide if widespread voter suppression is an acceptable governing tactic,” Barrett wrote.

In an interview with Business Insider, Barrett explained that Expensify employees contributed edits to the letter and before it was sent, a “supermajority” of employees voted to approved the content and hit the send button.

“We’ve always been a very strongly values-driven organization, and we talk a lot about what we stand for, what we believe in, what we’ll put our money and efforts behind,” Barrett told Business Insider.

In the email’s conclusion, Barrett invited those who disagree with him to share their thoughts in an email or to message him on Twitter to discuss.

Daniel M. Rothschild, the executive director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, sent Barrett one such reply, criticizing the Expensify CEO for politicizing his company and contributing to a “breakdown in social trust.”

“For a variety of reasons, America is becoming a low-trust society. Conspiracy theories abound, relationships are breaking down on partisan lines, and institutions that are critical to a free and open society are being undermined in many cases by their won actions that destroy trust,” Rothschild wrote in a letter to Barrett. “Your email contributes to this breakdown in social trust.”

Rothschild accused Barrett of violating the trust customers place in Expensify by giving them their personal financial information and contact information, which was then used for political purposes beyond the scope of a business arrangement.

“A healthy society cannot exist if its political tribalism invades every aspect of commercial, civic, and community life. Team Red and Team blue have gone from being who we vote for to, in many cases, lifestyle determinants. That is unhealthy to our civic fabric,” he said.

“And again, you email exacerbated this. Until last night, I saw Expensify as a pioneering company that made my life a lot easier,” Rothschild continued. “Now, I see Expensify as a Team Blue company.”

civil unrest Civil War Coronavirus vaccine COVID-19 darkest winter Election 2020 election chaos Emergency Preparedness Headline News Intelwars left vs right paradigm LIES looting Martial Law Masters National Guard Pentagon Police State Prepare propaganda Property damage Rioting ruling class slaves standby United States Violence

National Guard Put On Standby For The Coming Preplanned Chaos

After a violent summer of looting, rioting, and protests, the national guard has been put on standby for the preplanned incoming chaos. The National Guard has put hundreds of military police on standby specifically to help law enforcement deal with any potential violence in the coming months, three United States military officials said.

Military officials told Reuters that while the units were not specifically created to address potential violence around the November 3 elections, their existence highlights how the military could help deal with unrest around the vote without deploying active-duty troops to cities. Apparently, this is a key tenet for Pentagon leadership.

Is it possible that the national guard is on standby for this too?

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

They have preplanned this election chaos, and for those who can see it, we understand that a military martial law police state was the plan from the beginning. Maybe the protests and looting and rioting haven’t been violent enough.  Who knows.  But we have been warned of the “darkest winter” and election violence for several months now. We should have known we would need to prepare for martial law, especially considering the government has already told us the military will deliver the vaccine around election time.

Vaccine Update: The Military Has A HEAVY-HANDED Involvement In Operation Warp Speed

A senior National Guard official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the military police “Rapid Response Units” had been established in the past month and could deploy to any part of the country within 24 hours if requested by a governor.

“We’re in very unique times right now in our country, we’ve seen several instances of where civil disturbances escalated very quickly to riots, extensive property damage,” the official said. The units would be on standby until at least the end of the year, the official said. –Yahoo News

Suddenly the government is concerned about property damage when looters and rioters have been destroying things for months? This is uncanny timing and bears scrutiny.

All of this seems to be set to coalesce into something big around election time. Please stay alert and prepared for anything. The signs are there that we need to remain vigilant and understand what could go down. The election is now a mere 26 days away.

2020 back to normal barometer Civil War Intelwars poll stockpiling Us civil war

SHOCK POLL: 62% of Americans believe US is ‘on verge of civil war,’ 52% ‘stockpiling’ in preparation

Are you preparing for potential coming unrest? If so, you’re not alone.

A shocking new poll reveals that 62% of respondents are concerned that America could be “on the verge of another civil war,” and 52% are stockpiling food and other essentials in “anticipation of social unrest.”

The survey, conducted by Engagious, the Sports and Leisure Research Group, and ROKK Solutions as part of their “2020 Back to Normal Barometer” study, found that even moderates believe major unrest is coming, too.

“This is the single most frightening poll result I’ve ever been associated with,” said Rich Thau, president of Engagious.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck reviews these truly frightening findings.

Civil War election Intelwars war game

LIVE NOW: Civil War: The Left’s Election-Night War Game

The Left has big plans for this election, and we could be just four weeks away from the fundamental transformation of America. They’ve been building a network of street activists since 2008, and the plan is to unleash them on November 3.

Tonight, in part three of this series, Glenn Beck reveals everything: how the Arab Spring inspired Occupy Wall Street, how Occupy Wall Street inspired a new era in left-wing activism, and how this newly evolved street movement has been behind nearly every major leftist movement over the past several years. But in their own words, that was just the warm-up. The real movement begins in about one month.

Glenn takes you line by line, from their own documents, to show you the four scenarios Democrats have planned and also equips you with the action plan to prepare for election night and the weeks to follow.

Civil War Election 2020 Intelwars Playbook for revolution

LIVE NOW: Civil War: The Left’s Revolution Playbook EXPOSED

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there’s a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the “Seven Pillars of Color Revolution” written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style “Color Revolution.” The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race “are trash.” We’re being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

burn it down Civil War court reform division Donald Trump election Elizabeth Warren escalation Headline News IMPEACHMENT Intelwars left vs. right paradigm lie looting Mitch McConnell Nancy Pelosi promises Rioting Ruth Bader Ginsburg social media warnings this is war Threats Violence vows

Democrats Promise Violence: “This Is WAR!”

The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has prompted President Donald Trump to act quickly to secure a replacement before the election. That decision has upset the left and they are promising violence in increasingly concerning statements such as “this is war!”

We may not be able to escape a civil war in this country. There’s simply too much division. Even though Donald Trump has vowed to replace Ginsburg with another female justice, those on the left feel that it should be put off until after the election.

The fight over the 2017 Kavanaugh nomination already looked tame by comparison Sunday as Democrats geared up to block whomever President Trump picks to fill the seat left by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to the Washinton Times. 

Calls of “burn it down” and “this is war” raged on social media as activists held weekend protests outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s homes in Louisville, Kentucky, and Washington, D.C., and a rally outside the Supreme Court featuring Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave. This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them,” tweeted progressive Hollywood director and actor Rob Reiner.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday warned that another impeachment attempt of Trump is on the table. They have also suggested making big changes and expanding the government, which is never a good idea for the public.

“If in fact, they are successful in placing a justice on the court, I think that what Democrats have to do, assuming that Biden is president and there is a Senate majority in for the Democrats, we need to think about court reform,” said former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on MSNBC. “And at a minimum, as part of that reform package, I think additional justices needed to be placed on the Supreme Court.”

The election has already been promised to be one of complete horror.

Brace For The Worst Election In U.S. History

Systematic Collapse of Society: Manufactured Election Crisis & FAMINE

Now is the time to ensure you have adequate protection. Violence appears inevitable and if we can trust anything, it’s that violence and looting and rioting will all be on the table this year no matter what. Brace yourselves, it will get uglier.

Civil War Intelwars Mail-in voting Obama admin in ukraine Public school indoctrination revolution

LIVE NOW: CIVIL WAR: The Way America Could End in 2020

We’re being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they’re not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department’s relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don’t act now.

Barack Obama blinders Censorship Civil War Conspiracy Fact and Theory cult destruction of the United States divide and conquer division Donald Trump elites have planned this elitists Emergency Preparedness erupting globalism government is slavery Headline News Hegelian Dialect Intelwars leave the system left-right paradigm Military mind control pawns political ideology propaganda rigged election The Matrix the system unite Vaccine

Has The Civil War Has Begun? Left Vs. Right Violence, Just Like The Elites Want

Americans are hopelessly devolved into a dangerous left vs. right paradigm that has now erupted.  This is just what the elitists wanted when they planned the destruction of the United States, and angry voters on both sides are playing the pawns for those attempting to cement the totalitarian enslavement of humanity.

This “civil war” is going to be blamed on conservatives, Donald Trump supporters, and those who pretend they want freedom while also voting for the guy who says he’s going to use the military to distribute a vaccine. You cannot make this stuff up. It’s 2020, and I guess that just means most are going to put on their blinders and make sure they harden their stance with their political cult and allow it to drive their decisions, which are becoming increasingly violent and already predetermined by the mind control and propaganda games the elites contrive.

The Angry Prepper makes the case that the civil war planned by the elites has arrived:

It was announced on Facebook, that The “Trump Cruise Rally” that would drive into the dark heart of strife-riven Portland, Oregon. It was also touted as “conceal carry ONLY!” and began at the Clackamas Town Center.  This was nothing more than an instigation, yet the media is painting the Trump supporters as akin to the Taliban.

Both sides are wrong here and both are simply acting like pawns of the globalists willing to do violence to keep a particular slave master calling the shots. Instead of working together to take down the real enemy, Americans have turned on each other, as has been the plan of the elitists for a long time.  This is all likely to escalate through the elections.

Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama have both laid the groundwork for the division we are seeing, even though both are on the same side: the side of the international banking cartel and cabalists. If you can’t see it by now, the elitists have already enslaved your mind. For example, Richie from Boston and Brian from High Impact Flix and High Impact Vlogs were both censored by YouTube for calling out the left/right paradigm and making videos proving Trump is a part of all of this and the military is training to arrest and detain American citizens.

Richie from Boston Backup channel

High Impact Tv, Brian’s backup channel

Those censored now, are calling out the entire system, uniting together, and elimination the entire system of control we’ve stuck in for centuries. The elites can’t have that. They need people divided and to show up and vote in the rigged system that they are tightening around all of our necks. Wake up!

Remember, the elitists have already done an “Event 201” style model for this year’s election.  The worst-case scenario, according to their models is going to come from an election that’s contested over Biden winning the popular vote and Trump winning the electoral college. They have literally already planned this out. Your vote will be a waste of time but will also be a signal to the elites that you approve of and will continue to participate in their rigged game of slavery.

Brace yourselves. Things are ramping up. Food shortages, election violence, and a digital dollar are all on the horizon.

Civil War communism conflicts Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Fake Conservatives Fascism Forecasting freedom from government Globalists Headline News Ideology Intelwars Joe Biden leave the system left-right paradigm liberty lockdowns non-aggression principle one party system peace scamdemic SLAVERY survival tyranny United States voluntaryism voting doesn't matter

Is America Heading For Civil War? Of Course It Is…

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market. 

In last week’s article, I discussed the issue of American “balkanization” and the rapid migration of conservatives and moderates from large population centers and states that are becoming militant in their progressive ideology. In my home state of Montana, there has been a surge of people trying to escape the chaos and oppression of leftist states.

Some are here because of the pandemic and the harsh restrictions they had to endure during the first lockdowns. Others are here because they can’t stand the hostility of identity politics, cancel culture, and race riots. Either way, they are fleeing places with decidedly leftist influences.

Uprooting and moving to an entirely new place is not an easy thing to do, especially in the middle of a pandemic. For many people, such an idea would have been unthinkable only a few years ago. Believe me, moving to a place like the Rocky Mountain Redoubt is not an easy transition for most. Hopefully, these people understand that they will have to make extensive preparations for the rough winter and be ready to work hard in the spring and summer months to survive. Maybe they don’t realize yet how tough it is here; maybe they know and don’t care.

That’s how bad the situation has become – Rational and reasonable people are willing to leave behind their old life and risk it all to keep a margin of freedom.

In my view, it is clear that the political left has gone so far off the rails into its own cultism that there is no coming back. There can be no reconciliation between the two sides, so we must separate, or we must fight. I advocate for separation first for a number of reasons:

First and foremost, conservatives are the primary producers within American culture. If we leave the leftists to their own devices there is a chance they will simply implode in on themselves and eat each other because they have no idea how to fill the production void. The recent developments in the defunct CHAZ/CHOP autonomous zone are a perfect example. Those people don’t have the slightest clue what they are doing and it shows.

Second, if conservatives separate it provides a buffer that helps defuse future random conflicts. When you force the two sides into a box together eventually they will find a reason to try to kill each other. Putting some distance between them and us reduces the angst.

Third, if the leftists decide they don’t like that we have separated and are thriving on our own, and they attempt to antagonize or attack us where we live, then we hold the clear moral high ground when we smash them to pieces in response.

I fully realize that the third outcome is the most likely. War is probably inevitable. Why? Because collectivists and narcissists are never satisfied. They desire unlimited control over the lives of others and they will use any means to get that control no matter how destructive. Separating from them is only a stop-gap that allows us to take a superior position. Through peaceful migration, we set the pace of the conflict. Eventually, they will come after us, and there will be no doubt about our response then. There will be no way to spin the result in their favor, no way for them to play the victims.

Some people might question if we are actually to the point of open conflict; they might accuse me of “doom-mongering”. Others may argue that conservatives are acting “passive” and that we will never take any action. These assumptions are common right now because such people do not understand how history progresses and how group psychology evolves.

Domestic war is not something pursued lightly, or haphazardly. The average person knows at least subconsciously that it’s better to seek resolution or to remain patient as events unfold. Conservatives aren’t stupid; we know that before any civil war there is first a culture war. And, we know that the cards are stacked against us and that if we act rashly in any way we will lose position in that culture war.

So, we let the leftists spit and rage like madmen for a little while. Each day people who were on the fence when it comes to the culture war are witnessing this and come over to our side because we’re the only side that is sane. The drawback is, there comes a point in which calm professionalism might be wrongly perceived as weakness. And when people sense weakness among conservatives, they might run into the arms of the extreme left thinking that it’s safer to join the “winning team”.

I believe conservatives have not been sucked into a reactionary stance yet because they are thinking logically and refusing to play the game for now. In some ways, it is how we enter the fight that is more important than the fight itself.  To understand why, we have to look at the bigger picture beyond the left/right conflict.

As I noted last week, the political left is a tool for a greater agenda. They are being used as a weapon of chaos by globalist interests. This is not “conspiracy theory”, this is a conspiracy fact. Millions of dollars have poured into Antifa and BLM related groups through elitist donors like George Soros and his Open Society Foundation as well as the Ford Foundation. Globalist institutions like these have been influencing the extreme left and promoting identity politics for DECADES. This is openly admitted. What we are witnessing in 2020 is simply the culmination of a half-century-long propaganda campaign that created the modern feminist movement, victim group status, entitlement culture, etc.

The reason for the agenda should be obvious: Chaos creates fear. Fear creates division and crisis. And, crisis creates opportunity (as globalist Rahm Emanuel once bragged). Meaning, the extreme left is going to start a war because that’s exactly what the global elites created them for.

Now, some might suggest that this places conservatives in a Catch-22 position; if we don’t fight back then we will look weak. We will be culturally isolated and eventually overrun and wiped from the history books. If we do fight back we will be giving the globalists what they want – A civil war that will tear America apart.

The suggestion by certain special interests will be that there is only one way out; use government power to turn the tide to our advantage. In other words, institute martial law. I don’t really see it that way.

Once we understand that a fight is coming regardless, our task is to position ourselves with the most advantage possible while keeping our culture and our principles intact. This includes our belief in constitutionalism, civil liberties, and opposition to tyranny in ANY form. Winning the fight is important, but maintaining our principles in the process is more important. Becoming a monster to fight the monster is the same as losing.

When the left comes for us (and they will), the fight has to be won by us, not government. We cannot hand even more power to government in the name of security. We cannot become the fascists the leftists accuse us of being.

I am often asked these days about my view of the 2020 election and how it will turn out. I did predict Trump’s election win in the summer of 2016 based on the idea that Trump’s presence in the White House would drive the left insane, as well as give the globalists a perfect “conservative” scapegoat for the economic collapse they had been engineering since at least 2008.

Trump’s cabinet of global elitists suggests his complacency in this plan.  We still live under a one-party system pretending as if it is a two-party paradigm.

Furthermore, I am not convinced there will even be an election in November. With pandemic lockdowns surely returning as infections spike once again, the US economy will be in ruins by winter. Voting in a traditional fashion will be difficult or restricted in some states. And, mail-in or digital ballots will not be accepted by most conservatives because of their history of being used to rig election outcomes.

Look at it this way: If Trump “wins”, or delays the election, the left will riot and a civil war will be triggered. Conservatives will have to deal with the violence of the left while also dealing with the potential for martial law (which we cannot tolerate or support either). If Biden “wins”, it will be perceived by many conservatives who still think elections matter as a stolen presidency engineered through fraudulent ballot practices.

To summarize, if Trump is still in the White House in 2021, get ready to fight back against leftist mobs as well as martial law measures. If you believe in freedom, realize that fake conservatives that support government tyranny will be as much a problem as Marxist lefties. If Biden enters the White House, expect him to immediately implement unconstitutional policies including medical tyranny, gun confiscation, and martial law. Either way, it ends in war.

It’s also the classic false choice narrative:  You can choose Marxism and communism, or you can choose fascism.  Communism being the elevation of the weak and the oppression of the strong in the name of arbitrary “equality”, and fascism being the elimination of the weak or less fortunate in the name of making more room for the strong.  Both sides rely on totalitarian government to assert dominance, and both sides benefit the elitist establishment.  The great con is that there is no third option when there is; the non-aggression principle, citizen defense, voluntarism, and freedom.

Frankly, I almost prefer a scenario in which Biden and the left are perceived as stealing the election. At least then conservatives will be fully united once again and ready to fight, instead of passively relying on a Pied Piper like Trump to save them.

The truth is, in 2020-2021 we stand at a massive nexus point in human history. We are spiraling into a decade and a fight that will decide the fate liberty for the next century or more. On one side stands the global elites and the useful idiots on the hard left. They will push for a collectivist system that erases all memory of the Constitutional Republic we once knew, and they will get help from fake conservatives that value power over principle. On the other side stands the people that just want to be left alone; the free minds, the people that don’t need or desire to have power over anybody.

If humanity is to have a future at all, the second group must continue to exist and prosper. They are the wellspring that feeds us, that gives us something to hope for. If the elites and the social justice mob take control, there can be no future for our species. They desire what they cannot and should not have. They value only what they can take from others. They have a hunger that can never be satiated. They will devour the world until there is nothing left while claiming they stand for the “greater good”. War cannot be avoided with such people; the only question is, will liberty-minded people stay the course and stick by their principles or will they fall to their darker impulses to ensure victory?

Civil War fourth of july frederick douglass Intelwars New York Rochester SLAVERY Statue vandalism

Frederick Douglass statue torn down in city where he gave speech about the Fourth of July and slavery prior to Civil War

A statue of iconic abolitionist Frederick Douglass was torn down over the weekend where it stood in a park in Rochester, New York, the
Democrat & Chronicle reported — and the act occurred on the anniversary of Douglass’ speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” that he gave in the city prior to the Civil War.

What are the details?

The Douglass statue in Maplewood Park was toppled from its base and left near the Genesee River Gorge, about 50 feet from its pedestal, police told the paper. The base and lower part of the statue were damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand, but police added to the paper that there were no signs of graffiti.

Image source: Democrat & Chronicle video screenshot

“It’s particularly painful that it happened at this time,” said
Carvin Eison, a leader of the project that brought a number of Douglass statues to Rochester in 2018 in remembrance of his 200th birthday, the Democrat & Chronicle reported.

More from the paper:

That year,
two St. John Fisher students were arrested for severe damage to one of the downtown statues. They maintained they were drunk when they vandalized the statue, while one witness claimed he heard racial slurs before the crime.

They later pleaded guilty to criminal mischief and participated in a restorative justice program in which they learned of the legacy of Douglass.

Eison told the Democrat & Chronicle that the damage to the Maplewood Park statue is too severe for a repair, but another Douglass will take its place. The damage is under investigation, the paper added.

More from the Democrat & Chronicle:

There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism — though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance — just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location. The
Maplewood Park location includes Kelsey’s Landing, where Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and others helped shuttle slaves to safety along the Underground Railroad.

Across the United States, Douglass’ July 5, 1852 speech, has been shared widely on social media
and elsewhere as a reminder of the country’s legacy of slavery and racism.

Douglass, a former slave, delivered the speech to the Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society at
Corinthian Hall in downtown Rochester. He told the listeners there and beyond that the country could not lay claim to the purest of ideals while willingly enslaving and oppressing its black citizens.

Douglass escaped slavery in Maryland in 1838 and
settled in Rochester for about 30 years, the paper said, adding that in his speech Douglass said July 4th’s celebration of liberty and citizenship was offensive to the enslaved population.

“Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice, are not enjoyed in common,” he said, according the the Democrat & Chronicle. “This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

Winn-Dixie supermarket chain actually has ‘no immediate plans’ to change name despite TMZ report

An exclusive report from TMZ last week said Winn-Dixie, a popular southeastern U.S. supermarket chain, was considering dropping it’s nearly 100-year-old moniker due to its “problematic” connection to “the old south and its way of thinking.”

Such a move wouldn’t be that much of a surprise amid leftist cancel culture’s recent flurry of activity — and particularly given that popular musical trios formerly known as The Dixie Chicks and Lady Antebellum both changed their names to The Chicks and Lady A to stay as woke as possible.

TMZ said the supermarket chain — “billed as a southern heritage brand serving Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi” — didn’t have a new name picked out but “the folks we spoke with it looks like it may only be a matter of time before making a switch.”

Not so fast

However, Southeastern Grocers spokesman Joe Caldwell told the Jacksonville Daily Record there were “no immediate plans to rename” Winn-Dixie.

“At Southeastern Grocers we’re committed to cultivating an inclusive culture and community that promotes belonging, inclusion and diversity,” he told the paper. “As such, we stand against racism and support the Black Lives Matter movement across our country.”

Caldwell also said, “Our Winn-Dixie banner has proudly served our communities for nearly 100 years, however, many things have changed during that time. While we have no immediate plans to rename this banner, we have always been and will continue to be responsive to the needs and concerns expressed by the communities we serve,” the Daily Record said.

TMZ didn’t appear to be buying it, though: “Translation … something’s coming down the pike.”

College football rivalry drops ‘Civil War’ name because of ‘connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery’

The college football rivalry between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University will no longer be referred to as the Civil War after students and alumni complained about the name’s connection to slavery, according to the Oregon State University athletics department.

The Oregon State-Oregon football matchup dates back to 1894, and was first referred to as the Civil War in 1929.

“Changing this name is overdue as it represents a connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery,” Oregon State University President Ed Ray said. “While not intended as a reference to the actual Civil War, OSU sports competition should not provide any misconstrued reference to this divisive episode in American history. That we did not act before to change the name was a mistake. We do so now, along with other important actions to advance equal opportunity and justice for all and in recognition that Black Lives Matter.”

Oregon’s director of athletics, Rob Mullens, agreed.

“We must all recognize the power of words and symbolism associated with the Civil War,” Mullens said.

One player who supports the name change, Oregon State safety Jaydon Grant, told Oregon Live that the name needs to be changed even while admitting that it is harmless.

“I had an emotional attachment to the name being an in-state kid,” Grant said. “But then I had to practice what I have been preaching. You cannot pick and choose what areas we are going to push for change in this fight. Right is right, wrong is wrong. I know the name seems harmless, and it really is, but I applaud my university for changing the name due to its historical ties to war that had everything to do with racism.”

As a result of racial unrest across the country, activists have made a renewed effort to remove statues, monuments and references to racism, slavery or the Confederacy from public spaces, with some high-profile examples including NASCAR’s banning of the Confederate flag at races, Walmart banning the Mississippi state flag from its stores, and even The Dixie Chicks changing their name to The Chicks.

2020 Bankers Civil War CRISIS destabilization elitists enslavement Federal Reserve Headline News historical cusp Intelwars jobless leave the matrix messy year New World Order Peter Turchin Predictions psyops researcher social unrest system United States upheaval wealth gap world domination

Peter Turchin: “Unfortunately, Things Are Not As Bad As They Can Be”

A decade ago, Peter Turchin, a researcher at the University of Connecticut, said 2020 was going to be a messy year.  Now, he’s said that even though it’s already been difficult, it isn’t nearly as bad as it can get.

Turchin thinks the social upheaval is still to come, and it’ll be about the dramatic erosion of the middle class (done intentionally with the lockdowns) as money was given to wealthy elitists in large amounts with little left for the regular worker. In 2010, he predicted on Nature.com that the United States would endure major social upheaval beginning around 2020.

“Very long ‘secular cycles’ interact with shorter-term processes. In the United States, 50-year instability spikes occurred around 1870, 1920, and 1970, so another could be due around 2020,” he wrote at the time. “Records show that societies can avert disaster. We need to find ways to ameliorate the negative effects of globalization on people’s well-being.”

Those negative effects on people’s well-being are only ever amplified however, as the elites continue on their quest for world domination and the complete permanent enslavement of mankind.

COVID-19: The Biggest Psyop In Human History

“We are rapidly approaching a historical cusp, at which the U.S. will be particularly vulnerable to violent upheaval,” he wrote. “If we understand the causes, we have a chance to prevent it from happening. But the first thing we will have to do is reverse the trend of ever-growing inequality,” he said in an essay on Aeon.com.

“As a scientist, I feel vindicated,” Turchin said in the Time story recently. “But on the other hand, I am an American and have to live through these hard times.” He warned that the worst may be yet to come, as societal crises can typically last for five to 15 years.

This problem discussed by Turchin all comes back to the Federal Reserve, its owners, and their goals for the future.

Turchin says the government’s reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic has further worsened the wellbeing of large swaths of the American population. Many have lost their livelihoods and businesses after the government declared them “non-essential.” The government has been a leading driver of national instability to help the elitists with their end game and has made the public less likely to trust government institutions, and with good reason. As millions of Americans remain jobless, Turchin says there will be other triggers (psyops) after this. He worries tensions “may escalate all the way to a civil war.” And if they don’t the elites have plans to force it.

Be prepared, because they will not stop trying to get the NWO established. No government stands in the way, only we do. Stay alert for the next “crisis,” which will most definitely be another psyop.

It All Comes Back To The Federal Reserve: The NWO Is Being Shoved Down Our Throats

This can all end. But we have to recognize the problem, and most people are too concerned about keeping the current rigged and corrupt system in place to actually worry about their freedom and the future of their children. Once we stand together and leave the Matrix en masse, the entire system crumbles.  It needs your compliance. They need us. We do not need them. It’s going to take several more created crisis for people to figure it out, which is the worst part, and every future crisis designed to divide us and keep us dependent on the rigged system will bring us closer to the New World Order.

Americans are sheep banking elitists Civil War Criminals elections governments Headline News Intelwars last president New World Order one world currency power psychological operations reject the system selections slaves sovereign humans they need your compliance Voting wake up Zionists

The Truth: “Governments Are The Biggest Criminals In The World, And They Don’t Want Competition”

In a recent video posted by Richie From Boston, he connects the dots the governments of the world don’t want you connecting. “Governments are the biggest criminals in the world,” says Richie. “And they don’t want competition.”

This video is likely to upset people still stuck in the left/right paradigm who believe that they have some sort of a voice during the (s)elections. This is meant to wake you up, and the angry responses in the comments of this video just go to show that people are still brainwashed by the mainstream media and falling for the political divide and conquer.

Manipulating The Masses: Edward Bernays & Why The System Needs Your Compliance

“Remember one day when it was the election or the selection period in America? And Americans were presented with two choices because it’s a free country. Choice A was a murdering, psychopathic, scumbag, evil, man-hating, witch named Hillary Clinton..the other choice was a multi-billionaire, who was a billionaire twice in America, who is also an actor on a show called ‘The Apprentice.’ ‘You’re fired.’ Now, in the religion of freemasonry, when you’re trying to transform someone, something, a country, a continent, a world; that ritual is considered ‘The Apprentice’…Donald J. Trump, who is a Israel first, zionist, capitalistic, maybe father-in-law of the anti-Christ, who knows…they used him to get to the disgruntled white American.” –Richie From Boston

And Americans, like the predictable sheep they are, fell for it.

“Many of us said long ago, that because of what things like The Economist magazineand many other hints the elites throw out there in publications, that Donald Trump was going to be the last president selected in the corporation of the United States of America.” –Richie From Boston

I agree with this one.  Trump will be the last president. It’s up to us how to proceed.  We either realize we don’t need any other human beings to have any amount of power or control over us and become the free sovereign humans we were always meant to be, or we become slaves to the New World Order.  There is no gray area. History has shown there’s no gray area. Power corrupts. Period. Those are the only two options.

Love him or hate him, Richie From Boston does not mince words. He is trying to break through that cognitive dissonance most Americans have that will ensure we are all slaves to the New World Order.  The only hope we have is for more people to wake up and realize what’s been done to them, and how they can break free.  If no one takes the NWO’s one world currency, it will not exist for long. Wake up! Humanity depends on it.

Everything is one huge psychological operation. “They’re doing this to piss off the same people who thought Donald Trump was gonna fix, ‘Make America Great Again.’ They’re gonna keep pushing this til we have all-out civil war.” They are using your loyalty to politicians and the ruling class (government) against you.

The fact that people haven’t figured this out yet is just more evidence that the television programming and the school indoctrination to obey the government at all costs has really worked.  Humans are easily manipulated and controlled are hating those who are trying to awaken them before it’s too late.

“The elites can’t have you ignoring [the psyops]…if white Americans continue to see Black Lives Matter all over everywhere like they will, there will be another ‘event.’ Even if they have to manufacture one. They do it all the time! The government is the criminals!”

Not all of them are criminals, says Richie. But the vast majority, because over the decades, they have weeded out anyone who would stand up against the crimes they are committing against humanity.  The United States government is helping the elitist usher in the New World Order. “They did all this so the government can consolidate power and buy more of the Earth.”

“We’re all being played!”

Draconian Lockdown Powers: It’s a Slippery Slope from Handwashing to House Arrest

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute. 

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”—Viktor Frankl

We still have choices. Just because we’re fighting an unseen enemy in the form of a virus doesn’t mean we have to relinquish every shred of our humanity, our common sense, or our freedoms to a nanny state that thinks it can do a better job of keeping us safe.

Whatever we give up willingly now—whether it’s basic human decency, the ability to manage our private affairs, the right to have a say in how the government navigates this crisis or the few rights still left to us that haven’t been disemboweled in recent years by a power-hungry police state—we won’t get back so easily once this crisis is past.

The government never cedes power willingly.

Neither should we.

Every day brings a drastic new set of restrictions by government bodies (most have been delivered by way of executive orders) at the local, state and federal level that are eager to flex their muscles for the so-called “good” of the populace.

This is where we run the risk of this whole fly-by-night operation going completely off the rails.

It’s one thing to attempt an experiment in social distancing in order to flatten the curve of this virus because we can’t afford to risk overwhelming the hospitals and exposing the most vulnerable in the nation to unavoidable loss of life scenarios. However, there’s a fine line between strongly worded suggestions for citizens to voluntarily stay at home and strong-armed house arrest orders with penalties in place for non-compliance.

More than three-quarters of all Americans have now been ordered to stay at home and that number is growing as more states fall in line.

Schools have canceled physical classes, many for the remainder of the academic year.

Many of the states have banned gatherings of more than 10 people.

At least three states (Nevada, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania) have ordered non-essential businesses to close.

In Washington, DC, residents face 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak. Residents of Maryland, Hawaii and Washington State also risk severe penalties of up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine for violating the stay-at-home orders. Violators in Alaska could face jail time and up to $25,000 in fines.

Kentucky residents are prohibited from traveling outside the state, with a few exceptions.

New York City, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., is offering its Rikers Island prisoners $6 an hour to help dig mass graves.

In San Francisco, cannabis dispensaries were included among the essential businesses allowed to keep operating during the city-wide lockdown.

New Jersey’s governor canceled gatherings of any number, including parties, weddings and religious ceremonies, and warned the restrictions could continue for weeks or months. One city actually threatened to prosecute residents who spread false information about the virus.

Oregon banned all nonessential social and recreational gatherings, regardless of size.

Rhode Island has given police the go-ahead to pull over anyone with New York license plates to record their contact information and order them to self-quarantine for 14 days.

South Carolina’s police have been empowered to break up any public gatherings of more than three people.

Of course, there are exceptions to all of these stay-at-home orders (in more than 30 states and counting), the longest of which runs until June 10. Essential workers (doctors, firefighters, police and grocery store workers) can go to work. Everyone else will have to fit themselves into a variety of exceptions in order to leave their homes: for grocery runs, doctor visits, to get exercise, to visit a family member, etc.

Throughout the country, more than 14,000 “Citizen-Soldiers” of the National Guard have been mobilized to support the states and the federal government in their fight against the coronavirus. While the Guard officials insist they have not been tasked with martial law, they are coordinating with the Pentagon, FEMA and the states/territories on COVID-19 response missions.

A quick civics lesson: Martial law is a raw exercise of executive power that can override the other branches of government and assume control over the functioning of a nation, state, or smaller area within a state. The power has been exercised by the president, as President Lincoln did soon after the start of the Civil War, and by governors, as was done in Idaho to quell a miner’s strike that broke out there in 1892.

In areas under martial law, all power rests with the military authority in charge. As British General Wellington wrote, “martial law” is no law at all, but martial rule; it abolishes all law and substitutes for it the will of the military commander. Military personnel are not bound by constitutional restrictions requiring a warrant and may enter and search homes without judicial authorization or oversight. Indeed, civil courts would no longer be functioning to hear citizen complaints or to enforce their constitutional rights.

Thus far, we have not breached the Constitution’s crisis point: martial law has yet to be overtly imposed (although an argument could be made to the contrary given the militarized nature of the American police state).

It’s just a matter of time before all hell breaks loose.

If this is not the defining point at which we cross over into all-out totalitarianism, then it is at a minimum a test to see how easily we will surrender.

Curiously enough, although Americans have been generally compliant with the government’s suggestions and orders with a few notable exceptions, there’s been a small groundswell of resistance within parts of the religious community over whether churches, synagogues and other religious institutions that hold worship services should be exempt from state-wide bans on mass gatherings. While many churches have resorted to drive-in services and live-streamed services for its congregants, others have refused to close their doors. One pastor of a 4,000-member church who stood his ground, claiming that the government’s orders violate his right to religious freedom, was arrested after holding multiple church services during which attendees were reportedly given hand sanitizer and made to keep a six-foot distance between family groups.

It’s an interesting test of the First Amendment’s freedom of assembly and religious freedom clauses versus the government’s compelling state interest in prohibiting mass gatherings in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

Generally, the government has to show a compelling state interest before it can override certain critical rights such as free speech, assembly, press, search, and seizure, etc. Most of the time, it lacks that compelling state interest, but it still manages to violate those rights, setting itself up for legal battles further down the road.

These lockdown measures—on the right of the people to peaceably assemble, to travel, to engage in commerce, etc.—unquestionably restrict fundamental constitutional rights, which might pass muster for a short period of time, but can it be sustained for longer stretches legally?

That’s the challenge before us, of course, if these days and weeks potentially stretch into months-long quarantines.

For example, the First Amendment guarantees “the right of the people peaceably to assemble.”  While the freedom to travel has been specifically recognized only as in the context of interstate or international travel, the freedom of movement is implicit liberty given that government agents may not stop and question or search persons unless they have some legal justification.

As Supreme Court Justice William Douglas once wrote:

The right to travel is a part of the “liberty” of which the citizen cannot be deprived without the due process of law under the Fifth Amendment. . . .  Freedom of movement across frontiers in either direction, and inside frontiers as well, was a part of our heritage. Travel abroad, like travel within the country, may be necessary for a livelihood. It may be as close to the heart of the individual as the choice of what he eats, or wears, or reads. Freedom of movement is basic in our scheme of values.

As a rule, people are free to roam and loiter in public places and are not required to provide police with their identity or give an account of their purpose for exercising their freedom.

However, as with all constitutional rights, these freedoms, as the Courts have ruled, are not unqualified. Even content-based restrictions on speech are allowed under the First Amendment if the restriction is needed to serve a compelling government interest.

The Supreme Court long ago “distinctly recognized the authority of a state to enact quarantine laws and health laws of every description[.]” Such laws are an exercise of the state’s police power, and if there is a rational basis for believing they are needed to protect the public health, they will be deemed to serve a compelling government interest.

The point was made over 100 years ago in circumstances similar to today’s COVID-19 outbreak when a smallpox outbreak occurred in Cambridge, Mass., invoking a state law allowing localities to make vaccinations mandatory and enforceable by criminal penalties.  In upholding the law and local order against a claim that it violated the constitutional liberty to control one’s own body and health, the Supreme Court declared:

The possession and enjoyment of all rights are subject to such reasonable conditions as may be deemed by the governing authority of the country essential to the safety, health, peace, good order, and morals of the community. Even liberty itself, the greatest of all rights, is not unrestricted license to act according to one’s own will.

The Court went on to write that “[u]pon the principle of self-defense, of paramount necessity, a community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic of disease which threatens the safety of its members.”

Most states have enacted laws that recognize the need for prompt action in times of emergency, including epidemics, and have delegated the authority to and executive officer to take action to address that emergency.  For example, Tennessee law provides that the governor is given the power to issue orders that have the force and effect of law to address emergencies, which include disease outbreaks and epidemics. That state’s law similarly grants mayors or other local chief executive officers the power to issue orders and directives deemed necessary, including closing public facilities, in order to address civil emergencies.

Courts have ruled that they will defer to the decisions of executive authority on the decision as to whether an emergency exists and whether the means employed to address the emergency are reasonable and legal, although there could be situations where a court would declare that the executive decision is arbitrary and unreasonable.

When governments act under their police power to control plagues and epidemics, those laws are valid even though they may restrict individuals in the exercise of constitutional rights.  As one legal scholar recently noted, the balance between individual rights and protection of the public “assumes that there will be times when there are truly compelling emergencies justifying severe measures. A global pandemic that spreads even among those who are asymptomatic and could exceed the capacity of the American health care system would appear to be just such a compelling situation.”

At the moment, the government believes it has a compelling interest—albeit a temporary one—in restricting gatherings, assemblies, and movement in public in order to minimize the spread of this virus.

The key point is this: while we may tolerate these restrictions on our liberties in the short term, we should never fail to be on guard lest these one-time constraints become a slippery slope to a total lockdown mindset.

What we must guard against, more than ever before, is the tendency to become so accustomed to our prison walls—these lockdowns, authoritarian dictates, and police state tactics justified as necessary for national security—that we allow the government to keep having its way in all things, without any civic resistance or objections being raised.

Martin Niemoller learned that particular lesson the hard way.

A German military officer turned theologian, Niemoller was an early supporter of Hitler’s rise to power, having believed his promises to protect the church and not allow pogroms against the Jewish people. It didn’t take long for Hitler to break those promises, but by the time the German people realized they had been double-crossed, it was too late.

As Niemoller warned: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

The lesson for those of us housebound and watching from a distance as the Fourth Reich emerges from the shadows is this: all freedoms hang together.

Niemoller’s warning for our modern age would probably go something like this: First, the government went after the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and I did not object, because I had nothing to hide. Then they went after the right to not be spied upon, and I did not object, because I had done nothing wrong. Then they went after the right to criticize the government, and I still did not object, because I had nothing to criticize them for. Then they went after the right to speak—worship—and assemble freely, and I did not object, because I had nothing to say, no one to worship, and nowhere to congregate. By the time the government came to lock me up, there was no one left to set me free.

In other words, don’t be naïve: the government will use this crisis to expand its powers far beyond the reach of the Constitution. The Justice Department has already signaled its desire to suspend parts of the Constitution indefinitely.

That’s how it starts.

Travel too far down that slippery slope, and there will be no turning back.

Curiously enough, although Americans have not been inclined to agree on anything much lately, given the extreme polarization of the country politically, a recent survey indicates that “people of both parties seem rather okay with undermining core civil liberties in order to fight the pandemic.”

This way lies madness.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, if you wait to speak out—stand up—and resist until the government’s lockdowns impact your freedoms personally, it could be too late.

What would be far worse, however, is handing over your freedoms voluntarily—without even a semblance of protest—to a government that cares little to nothing about your freedoms or your lives.
