Joe Biden: Our “Darkest Days” Are Ahead

Joe Biden is reminding people once again that we aren’t out of the woods with regards to the tyranny planned for the remainder of this winter. After many in the ruling class have already promised the “darkest winter,” Biden doubled down saying our “darkest days” are still ahead of us.

Joe Biden has urged Americans to prepare themselves for the upcoming struggle with the scamdemic hoax the mainstream media, ruling class, and elitists are pulling on us.  “One thing I promise you about my leadership during this crisis: I’m going to tell it to you straight. I’m going to tell you the truth. And here’s the simple truth: Our darkest days in the battle against Covid are ahead of us, not behind us,” Biden said in remarks in Wilmington, Delaware according to a report by CNN. 

“So we need to prepare ourselves, to steel our spines,” the President-elect continued. “As frustrating as it is to hear, it’s going to take patience, persistence, and determination to beat this virus. There will be no time to waste in taking the steps we need to turn this crisis around.” He added that “help” will be needed to distribute the vaccine.  Prepare for punishment if you decide not to take the “voluntary” shot.

This is not the first time the ruling class has spoken of darkness. Dr. Anthony Fauci had promised us numerous times that we’ll have a “dark winter.”

More Promises Of A Long “Dark Winter”

Joe Biden Warns: A “Dark Winter” Is Ahead

Those Who Planned The Enslavement of Mankind Warn Of “A Dark Winter” For Us

Secret Models of “The Darkest Winter”

This talk of a dark winter and dark days is no longer coincidental.  It continues to happen and it’s being done on purpose.  For what purpose? Who knows. My guess would be predictive programming, but it could be fear-mongering too.

As one of the rulers who think your life is owed to him, Biden is urging us all to just roll up our sleeves and take the vaccine. Just trust Big Pharma and the government. What could possibly go wrong?

“I look forward to the second shot, and I have absolute confidence in the vaccine,” Biden said on Tuesday. “But we’re in short supply. Taking the vaccine from a vial into the arm of millions of Americans is one of the biggest operational challenges the United States has ever faced.”

CRISIS Economy Error fiat currency final shakeout Financial funny money gains Gold government reaction Headline News Intelwars no recovery populism Precious Metals Silver

SUCKER’S SELL-OFF: Silver Can Double By MARCH 2021!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck with Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Silver is getting BEATEN DOWN in the past two weeks and there are tons of sellers; it’s a COLOSSAL ERROR to be selling right now, since, in our opinion, this is a FINAL SHAKEOUT before silver climbs over $30/ounce by the end of 2020!

This cash scare into dollars again is foolish and has NO MERIT.

As you can see, both gold and silver are OVERSOLD, yet the GOLDEN CROSS remains intact.

We believe that traders who opted out have signed their DEATH WARRANT.

They’re literally JUMPING SHIP, just as it is leaving the dock and sailing to the BAY OF PLENTY.

This correction in precious metals is SO NORMAL that it actually confirms the trend is in place.

Now I want to show you just how unique the BIG PICTURE OUTLOOK is for precious metals if the U.S. government continues to monetize the debt without some restrictive measures.

In the coming years, the ratio between gold and the S&P 500 is set to close and shrink, because of the DISTINCT CORRELATION between deficits and the speed at which it is growing and gold’s relative value.

Take a look at the following:

Do you realize the amount of funny money that central banks have used to fight off the MARCH PANIC? It’s stunning!

The way to play this trend is to understand just how UNPRECEDENTED MEASURES could manifest themselves in a few months, once the fear of Covid-19 is totally vanquished since what we’ll HAVE LEFT is all of this currency and debt.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

After the most aggressive sell-off in tech in the PAST TWO YEARS, we believe that this is a time to be ENTERING EQUITIES, precious metals, and real estate; we do believe in the recovery and we feel strongly that TREMENDOUS GAINS are to come!

Certainly, not everyone believes this, as you can see by September’s rout; the fact remains that populism is on the rise EVERYWHERE and that forces governments to react.

In 2-3 years, when silver is priced over $50/ounce, many will shake their heads at how obvious this was – I don’t plan to be one of them. I’m invested and believe that this SHAKEOUT was the last one before silver goes to $30/ounce.

Business buying now buying the dips Cloud Company CRISIS deep recession demand election equities experts Fear Forecasting health facilities healthy hospitals Intelwars markets Opinions pandemic panic recovery Stock Market Vaccine

PANDEMIC PANIC: 2nd Wave Climax – FED CRIPPLED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

What NO ONE expects is a deep recession; there are a number of CONFLICTING THEORIES as to what the recovery will look like, but nothing about entering a recession. The consensus is that the pandemic is highly contagious, but not lethal; “with a vaccine coming and FEAR LEVELS subsiding, a recovery has begun,” is the general idea.

Where OPINIONS DIFFER is about its strength and inclusiveness of the recovery:

  1. Dichotomy – This is the thesis that claims BIG BUSINESS is eating up SMALL BUSINESS, so the recovery is HAPPENING, but it isn’t a healthy one. We’ll see GDP printing better stats with each PASSING QUARTER, but poverty is increasing, since BIG gets BIGGER and small gets TINY.
  2. Vaccine-Dependent – This camp believes that the PENT-UP DEMAND will be unleashed, once first-responders agree to take the vaccine. That stamp of approval will LEAD to CONFIDENCE worldwide; I want to show you how much DISTRUST THERE IS in the value stocks, which are companies that dominate their industries but are growing slowly and predictably, not fast and sporadically.

The market believes that each company that isn’t on the cloud is going out of business, which has led to a bubble:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

You should consider THE FACTS about the pandemic before I move on to the THIRD CAMP, which are the investors who believe in the “V”-shaped or quick “U”-shaped recovery. They’re BUYING DIPS, as I am right now, following our FOUR WATCH LISTS: 1, 2, 3, and TECH.

The MOST IMPORTANT fact is that the PANDEMIC ITSELF isn’t lethal; the real crisis is overwhelmed hospitals and insufficient medical staff.

While no one likes to see CROWDED HEALTH FACILITIES, if those do return, this would be nowhere near the panic levels of March, when healthy people feared FOR THEIR LIVES.

Therefore, to expect markets to price in MARCH LOWS is a bit of a stretch of the imagination.

Instead, be agile in your thinking; there are REAL BARGAINS out there. Flexibility is needed, though. Don’t wait for sellers to hand you once-in-a-generation prices for the second time in six months.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, tight presidential races WEIGH ON PRICES, since it’s a huge unknown factor, especially when the parties are THIS POLARIZED on policy and public ideas.

It’s a tale of two Americas with two opposite agendas.

Where does gold come into the picture?

  1. Slow “V” or Fast “U” – Those who are FREE-MARKET oriented understand that businesses have muscled through the ROUGH PATCH and that capitalistic forces are driving innovation in this post-COVID-19 reality.

Wall Street and institutional money will be ENTERING EQUITIES on this severe dip and you ought to know that BUYING NOW is playing with fire, but I am certainly am.

Gold stocks have also reached their MOMENT OF TRUTH:

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

They MUST PENETRATE below the average of 2.5; that will signal a MULTI-YEAR TREND, which will confirm the bull market. The fact that Kinross and Newmont, among other large-cap miners, are RAISING DIVIDENDS, is a healthy sign of confidence from the most reputable management teams out there.

The September dip has allowed us to find companies with GREAT SUPPORT and I’m going to present new stock profiles, since, as the chart above shows, we’re ON THE CUSP of the REAL MOVE.

Gold might sell in this panic even further, but that’s not the REAL TREND; think ahead by 6-12 months and you’ll realize that inflation is accelerating!

Americans beast system Case fatality rate chaos Conspiracy Fact and Theory contested election Coronavirus CRISIS Destruction elites need fear Fake fears wane Federal Reserve Forecasting Headline News Intelwars leave the matrix Mainstream media mandatroy vaccines Mark of the Beast monetary takeover New World Order next crisis no masters no slaves order ab chao panic plandemic propaganda puppets resist the vaccine scamdemic SLAVERY system of control Vaccine wake up

Public Coronavirus Fears Wane, So What’s Next?

It sure looks like Americans can only be lied to for so long before they wake up and realize they were scammed. As the fears over the coronavirus wane, it’s important to remember that the elites need you in fear to submit to their New World Order system of control, so another crisis could be incoming.

We already know the election is going to be an ugly mess; the mainstream media has done their job of using predictive programming so the elites can model the most destructive scenario. It’s all a rigged game, and past time for us to say en masse: “we’re not playing anymore.”

But could something be in the works even before the election since the public is becoming less fearful of the coronavirus? Without fear, people won’t willingly submit to their own slavery. The ruling class (government puppets) and the elitists (Federal Reserve banking cartel) need you to be afraid so that you will need them.  We need to send a bold message that we DON’T need masters and are unafraid of their manufactured crises.

They Are Promising This Election WILL Be UGLY: Clinton Urges Biden to NOT Concede

A few mainstream media outlets are saying we can “beat” the scamdemic without a vaccine, but it should still be mandatory.  This could be our next crisis especially considering the military is going to be distributing the shot. There is a vested interest in making sure every human on earth get vaccinated for a disease with a .2% case fatality rate (and we know they are scamming us with those numbers to inject even more fear into the sheep).  Other mainstream media outlets are already using propaganda to convince the public that in order for people to work, they will have to get the vaccine. It sure looks like that could literally be the mark of the beast.

Some experts are already calling on employers to make it mandatory, which, they say, would generally be legal. But others caution against mandates, saying that they could backfire by making Americans more resistant to a vaccine they’re already concerned about and more likely to embrace anti-vaxxer sentiment. –USA Today

Whenever you mandate something, especially for this mild flu, people will start to wonder why that’s the case prompting more research and dissent. That could put a wrench in the elitists’ plans for their global totalitarian takeover.

Regardless of what’s coming, stay vigilant, and prepared. Brace yourself. This feels like the calm before the storm, but I really hope I’m wrong.

all a scam Americans coddled by lies Cognitive Dissonance Corporations CORRUPTION CRISIS Critical Thinking democracy is an illusion elitists enslave Fascist Federal Reserve free yourself global elites Headline News Hoax Illusion of Choice Intelwars LIES Mainstream media mental slavery mind control Politician power powerful military propaganda puppets voting sheep wake up Wealth

Global Elite Have More Control Over Us Than Most DARE To Imagine

Most people do not want the truth and prefer to be coddled by the lies.  The global elites have more control over all of us than most people can even comprehend at this point.  They control everything, including every politician.

In an excellent video by the Epic Economist, the facts are laid out. This is not about politics, the elites own the government (which is a system of slavery in and of itself anyway, another uncomfortable fact people don’t want to hear).  They have a powerful military standing between us and them and that’s how they keep their power. It’s beyond obvious at this point, and yet a good number of people reading this will still fall into a state of cognitive dissonance over the information and reject all critical thinking just to uphold the political party they have decided will be their savior.

One part of the population has not only escaped unscathed from the current crisis but in fact, consolidated even more of their wealth. The global elite. Regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs, it seems we can all agree that the global elites hold far too much influence over modern society, says the Epic Economist. And still, most Americans are unwilling to free themselves from their own enslavement.

We will not “vote them out” because the Federal Reserve decides the winners of elections, not the public. There is no capitalist, free-market system.  The government is in bed with corporations, which means we live in fascist democracy, and the word democracy is only being used to give the voting sheep an illusion of choice.

“It is not in the nature of politics that the best men should be elected. The best men do not want to govern their fellowmen.” George MacDonald

“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end.” –George Orwell
There is nothing to fear once you realize no other human being has and authority or right over you.

“A slave cannot be freed, save he do it himself. Nor can you enslave a free man; the very most you can do is kill him!” ? Robert A. HeinleinDouble Star

The solution everyone keeps asking for is simple. Wake up. Stop living like a panicked slave and obeying orders. Live free, as your creator intended. The elites don’t fear voters or revolutionaries.  They fear those who will reject slavery in all forms. They fear abolitionists.  It’s past time to wake up and realize that the initiation of force, violence, and slavery is immoral. Call it “government” all you want, but it’s still slavery, and it has to go along with the mind control that has lead humanity to willingly accept their subjugation to the elites under the lie of democracy.

Blame California Cool CRISIS demand Economy emergency Emergency Preparedness energy providers failure Gavin Newsom grid Headline News Intelwars Operations power Prepare rolling blackouts summer heat

Rolling Blackouts In California, Easy Ways To Prepare

California is experiencing its first rolling blackouts in 19 years.  While there’s plenty of blame to go around, there’s not much actual planning or preparation for such an event.

As more power outages loom, there still is no clear cause for the blackouts, according to the mainstream media.  That’s been causing everyone to point fingers. Energy experts on Monday cited a litany of potential causes for the rotating outages that affected hundreds of thousands of California residents Friday and Saturday nights. According to Politico, some of the reasons for the rolling blackouts could be ballooning demand, inadequate transmission, an overreliance on renewable energy, and the incursion of new energy providers that don’t have the same obligation to maintain reserves as traditional utilities do.

Governor Gavin Newsom, who is already loathed over his heavy-handed tyrannical response to the coronavirus panic, questioned all of the state’s electricity players about why the outages occurred and faced blowback from frustrated residents.

Earlier Monday, the California Independent System Operator blamed Friday’s outages on “high heat and increased electricity demand.” Yet some energy experts noted that demand wasn’t particularly higher than normal, as is typical for weekends, and CAISO had predicted it would have adequate reserves on hand for the 80 percent of California’s grid that it manages.

“What’s weird about what happened is they were adequate until they weren’t,” said Michael Wara, director of Stanford University’s climate and energy program and a member of the state’s Catastrophic Wildfire Cost and Recovery Commission. “It seems as if certain power plants for some reason we’re not able to deliver on the commitments to supply reserves and also supply energy.” –Politico

Regardless of the reason for the blackouts, Californians will face more of them in the upcoming days. The state’s grid operator held off for a second straight night, citing cooler than expected weather and widespread conservation.

To prepare for rolling blackouts in the summer do the following:

  1. Freeze large containers (water bottles, Tupperware, etc.) of water to keep food cool in a cooler. A typical freezer/refrigerator will keep food cool for about 48 hours.
  2. Fully charge your medical device(s) and consider securing backup power if you rely on power for your device(s).
  3. Keep extra water on hand in during the summer months to stay hydrated.  Without air conditioning, temperatures can soar quickly.
  4. Have some cash on hand and make sure to keep fuel in your vehicle.
  5. Make sure flashlights have batteries.
  6. Keep your bug out bag/emergency bag/vehicle bag in an easy-to-grab spot in case you need to use things in it.

Stay safe, cool, and prepared.

Americans be free businesses are doomed civil disobedience control the mind COVID-19 CRISIS disobey free people don't ask for permission Headline News human rights Intelwars Licenses LIES live free livelihoods obsolete permits political overlords propaganda puppets pushback reality of government ruling class scamdemic they need us United States wake up we don't need them

Americans Slowly Wake Up: Some Are Becoming Less Willing To Beg For Permission

Americans may be slowly starting to wake up to their slavery.  Many have become less willing to beg the government for permission to make a living in light of the ever-tightening restriction on our very humanity.

Government officials claim that doing business is a revocable “privilege,” but many Americans see it as a basic human right that they’ll exercise with or without licenses and permits, according to a report by Reason.  Finally, we are seeing some push back against the government. It may be late, but it’s better than nothing.

As the COVID-19 scamdemic narrative continues to simmer and lose its fear factor, the one competency that officials have consistently displayed is in tightening the screws, using the licenses and permissions they require as enforcement tools. For people tired of being bossed around, the obvious response is to carry on without the government’s imprimatur—and they’re doing so in droves. It’s an attitude likely to live on long after the crisis has passed.

This is the kind of thing that will eventually make governments obsolete. Keep in mind, we do not need them for anything. They desperately need you to believe you need them, but we don’t. They need us, and that’s the disgusting truth they hope we never find out.

People across the United States have finally gotten to a point where they have nothing left to lose. “Our businesses are doomed,” Chris Polone, co-owner of a Fort Worth bar that was one of more than 800 such establishments to open in defiance of Texas closure orders, said at the end of July. “We have nothing to lose. We can either fight this thing, or we can starve ourselves out.”

As apocalyptic as that sounds, it’s a reasonable statement when the review site Yelp reports that 55 percent of all businesses shut during the pandemic is believed to have closed their doors forever. For many entrepreneurs, breaking the rules may be the only way to survive.

Free men and women don’t ask for permission to live or survive anyway. They already know that they were born free and no amount of voting or heavy-handed government can tell them what to live.  People all over seem to be realizing that historically, government has not been a friend of the people, but a way to slowly amass more power until there is nothing the public can do.  But people have been backed into a corner now, so the realization that they are either going to be free or live a life of enslavement to the ruling class is a choice to be made now.

However, those who are wanting complete control of everyone on this earth will not give up easily, and it’s important to note that they will double down as more people wake up and become free. Don’t fall for the fear, live freely as the creator intended, and stay alert. 2020 is not over yet.

bull markets COVID-19 CRISIS Emergency Preparedness epic returns experts forced Gold Hoarding Gold Intelwars mining stocks months Politics Precious Metals Silver United States

READY, AIM, FIRE: SILVER ON STEROIDS – BABOOM!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

This isn’t a time to be indifferent about GOLD AND SILVER gains. Though the modestly-bullish sentiment and lack of euphoria indicate that we could be a long way from experiencing the peak for this bull market, mining shares (both large-cap and junior-sized) have been MAKING SENSATIONAL strides in the past two months and we must address this.

Mining stocks are CYCLICAL. The ONLY WAY to capture gains is to be MORE EDUCATED than your peer investors and sell them your shares at the appropriate time in the cycle.

Gold has been the best-performing asset class in 2020 and mining shares have
seen EPIC RETURNS!

To me, this DOES NOT feel like 2016, when in the span of six months, my portfolio soared by 312%, on total average. This one is mild, with sensible profits, but not A MAD RUSH yet.

It also feels NOTHING LIKE 2011, when the sector gained 15%-20% on a daily basis for a couple of weeks and was GOING PARABOLIC. But we are entering a point of TOUGH TERRAIN for both metals – gold and silver.

Gold, for one, is ACTING PERFECTLY. I don’t like any asset class that doesn’t make mistakes since it means
one is coming soon. The demand for it has been EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH.

Take a look:

The HOARDING OF GOLD is epic and unless many NEW ENTRANTS come into this sector, we will experience a pullback, since demand
has been OUTRAGEOUS.

In December 2018, my wife and I were in New Zealand with our daughter and my mother-in-law.

While grandma watched over our then 3-yr-old for the day, my wife and I woke at 6:00 AM, drove two hours and reached Tongariro National Park. At 9:00 AM, the two of us were already pacing through the terrain, crossing this historic land, which the native Maori believe is sacred (the mountain tops).

2.5 hours into it, we were looking, from below, at the HARDEST CLIMB, which would also be the last.

We wasted no time, since there’s no sense delaying the inevitable. The last part was TRULY EXHAUSTING, but we did it, nonetheless.

Gold is at the base of the summit. It can see $2,000/ounce, but it WON’T BE EASY.

One must be mentally prepared for the UPHILL BATTLE.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, this pandemic is WREAKING HAVOC amongst various segments in many ways and Wealth Research Group doesn’t see us pulling out of the recession for another 18-24 months.

Add to that the fact that we now believe that Donald Trump could lose the presidency, something that wasn’t even considered before Covid-19 came along.

In U.S. history, there have been many CRISIS SITUATIONS. I’ve studied the lives of many of the country’s MOST ADMIRED presidential figures and here are FIVE CHARACTERISTICS they shared in times of peril:

  1. Country First: all presidents were PATRIOTIC and thought of what’s best for the country, leading by example. Donald has to step up his game on that front; he’s dishing out criticism when he should be showing leadership by helping the states to pull through. America would love him more for it.
  2. Politics Aside: The best presidents were able to persuade both parties to WORK TOGETHER. Here, again, too much friction still exists.
  3. Brutal Honesty: The American public might be westernized and accustomed to comfort, but they hate to be SUGARCOATED and they hate false promises of prosperity when it contradicts reality. Trump must not appear too optimistic (“By Easter, this will be over.”) and give people a REAL ACCOUNT. He can rebuild credibility that way.
  4. Showing Empathy: Tens of millions of people are suffering right now. During the months of March and April, many thought their lives were in IMMINENT DANGER. America wants the president to show that he is with the people, going through hard times. George Washington slept with his soldiers in the field. Empathy goes a LONG WAY!
  5. Clear Communication of Goals: Lastly, a leader needs to give the people a DISTINCT TRAJECTORY, a direction to head towards. There is disarray at present. Companies and individuals don’t know what’s next and can’t plan ahead. Every state is acting independently and sometimes at stark contrast from its neighboring jurisdiction.

“With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed.” – Abraham Lincoln.

The United States is a republic and a constitutional nation. People will not be forced against their will. In a free society, leadership starts with PERSUASION. America needs to BELIEVE AGAIN that it is strong, invincible, and roll up its sleeves.

If it can’t, gold will get to $4,000 and $5,000 PRETTY FAST.

beast system cases spiking crash the system creation of crises CRISIS elitists Emergency Preparedness Government Headline News Hoax incite a war Intelwars it's not about health Laws leave the system LIES Mainstream media new restrictions New World Order order out of chaos Politicians propaganda Scam second lockdown Second wave States system testing United States

There WILL BE A Second Lockdown: COVID-19 Cases “SPIKE”

The elitists cannot allow anyone to live freely without dependence on their system in order for their New World Order to get done. Because of this, and the predictive programming from the mainstream media, we know there will be a second lockdown.

The government and their puppets in the MSM want you to believe the cases of COVID-19 are spiking due to anything but the rioting and protests of course. This will not end until we end it.

Even though the evidence has shown that this was a scam and hoax from the beginning, massive amounts of slaves in the United States are still falling for it.  This is been a testament to just how well Operation Mockingbird has worked on people who believe they are free.

Coronavirus Panic & Fear: The Greatest Mainstream Media Hoax In History

According to RT, Florida, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, California and Missouri also each broke their own daily case records on Wednesday, the project’s data showed, and join 13 other states to have done the same over the last five days. This country will be lucky to get to the middle of next week before politicians start trying to lock people down again.

California Governor Gavin Newsom reported an especially alarming figure during a press event on Wednesday, noting the state had seen a 69 percent jump in cases in the span of just two days, warning he may “revert back” to tougher containment measures. The governor of Texas has similarly reversed course, authorizing local officials to impose new restrictions on outdoor gatherings and to mandate face masks in public, after an attempt to reopen last month. –RT

The fear-mongering will not end.  They know they need you in a state of fear to keep your vibrations low enough that they can bark orders and you’ll obey. Once you realize this is what they are doing, and reclaim your freedom (free people don’t ask permission anyway) from government, you’ve taken a big step in defeating the New World Order.

How do you leave the system? Use gold, silver, and “lead” and know how to improve your self-reliance. Grow your own food, learn to hunt and forage for wild food, and live freely.

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.

Central Banks competition counter fitters CRISIS Debt Dollar economic Federal Reserve Headline News Intelwars Jerome Powell layoffs Reserve Currency Struggling Thieves weaponized dollar

DEBT OVERHANG: Funeral Directors – FED CROSSED RED LINES!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. 

The U.S. dollar is, WITHOUT A DOUBT, a weapon at this point. The Federal Reserve uses it to PROP UP American businesses, mostly with the thought in mind that ANYTHING IS BETTER than seeing a debt deflation.

It’s true; a debt-deflation would lead to riots ONE HUNDRED TIMES worse than the ones you’re currently seeing. A debt deflation would lead to MARTIAL LAW, to curfews, to ROBBED ATM machines, to a WORLD OF PAIN, so you know the central bank cannot let this happen.

In the movie The Godfather, the head of the family Michael Corleone is confronted by his wife and mother of his children, Katherine “Kay” Corleone, saying she doesn’t love him and that she wants to take his children from his house and raise them on her own. He tells her that “He will use all of his resources and power to stop that.” It’s a powerful scene.

To Jerome Powell, a debt deflation is what taking children from their father is to Al Pacino’s character. He will turn heaven and earth before he lets it happen.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

This is the reason the system IS BROKEN. It can’t undergo recessions and slowdowns; TOO MUCH DEBT allows it to work only in boom times.

The world is too divided to DECIDE ON a new monetary structure, so when China finally HAS ENOUGH of American currency dominance, THE SEPARATION will be like an earthquake.

My analysis doesn’t show the Yuan becoming the new reserve currency, but that China will be able to persuade ITS BLOCK OF COUNTRIES – which give more of their allegiance to China than they do to the U.S. – to trade in a basket of Chinese-led currencies/commodities.

The dollar will NOT CEASE being the world reserve currency, but it will have competition.

As can be seen above, the number of bankruptcies IS INCREASING; no doubt Covid-19’s economic damage has been PAPERED OVER, but you can’t bail out everyone – it’s NOT POSSIBLE.

This will put additional pressure on government and central banks – more stimulus packages WILL FOLLOW.

This crisis has hit both the young and the elderly, FINANCIALLY SPEAKING (check it above).

It mostly hurt the ALREADY-STRUGGLING, who are laid off more quickly since they’re replaceable. And if a competitor recruits them, it doesn’t create long-lasting damage.

For America, Covid-19 will be remembered as the crisis in which the Federal Reserve showed what it means to be ALL-IN, and I believe this will change how investors view future crises.

The reason I say that is because from now on, the focus will no longer be on the Federal Reserve, but on the DEBT OVERHANG that its programs create. It will be considered a given that the central bank fixes market issues, but the debate will revolve around the unintended consequences of their policies.

Central banks have entered a NEW ERA. They will need to prove that their actions don’t create UNSOLVABLE problems for countries.

Everyone understands now that central banks simply print currency; nothing fancy about it… they are just COUNTERFEITERS WITH A LICENSE.

brainwashing process CRISIS Demoralization destabilization dissent freedom Government Headline News ideological subversion Intelwars military boot military oppression New World Order Normalization order followers Police State ruling class SLAVERY tyranny wake up Yuri Bezmenov

It’s Time To Wake Up: KGB Defector’s DECADES OLD Warning To America

A KGB defector has a brutal warning for the United States. Unfortunately, we are living through the destruction of a system set up by the elitists in order to bring in the New World Order, and Americans are still falling for it; still calling for martial law; still calling for the destruction of their rights because their ruler is in power. Wake up before it’s too late.

Yuri Bezmenov tried to warn us of what’s coming a long time ago. As a KGB defector, Bezmenov knows all too well how governments are brainwashing people into becoming their slaves. Specializing in the fields of Marxist-Leninist propaganda and ideological subversion; Bezmenov tried to warn us about the silent war being waged against America as part of a long term plan to take over and destroy the American system and way of life.

Agenda 21 Requires Martial Law

This goes far deeper than left vs. right, and it’s the truth people don’t want to hear. This warning is from over 35 years ago. Brace yourselves, you won’t like this if you’re still fighting over which person should have the right to rule you and others:

Ideological subversion is a phrase most Americans don’t understand.  It’s simple though. This is a war for your mind. They need to convince you that they have a right to rule you and you have the obligation to obey. In Bezmenov’s words:

“Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate, overt, and open- you can see with your own eyes. All you have to do, all American mass media has to do is unplug the bananas from their ears, open up their eyes that they can see. There’s no mystery.

According to my opinion, and opinion of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage and such. The other 85% is spent on a slow process, which is we call either ideological subversion, or active measures…or psychological warfare.  What it basically means, is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their communities, and their country. It’s a great brainwashing process, which goes very slow and it’s divided in four basic stages. The first one being demoralization. It takes 15-20 years to demoralize a nation.”

You are stuck with the politicians (both left and right) that now adhere to a Marxist ideology. You cannot get rid of them. That’s because people who value liberty and freedom do not go into politics to rule over their fellow human beings. The system is corrupt from the bottom up and the top down. Eliminating the system is only the first step.  The second step is to realize no other system of power should be put over humans ever again. In every instance, even in the United States, the power structure called “government” has descended into tyranny. Breaking free requires the complete comprehension that no other man has the right to rule any other man.

Most demoralization is done “by Americans to Americans, thanks to lack of moral standards,” Bezmenov adds. “Exposure to true information does not matter anymore.”  We are seeing this play out right now, as morality takes a backseat as Americans divide themselves and choose which violence is acceptable: violence of looters or violence by the state.

“The psychological shock, that they will see in the future what the beautiful society of equality and social justice means in practice. Obviously, there will be walls that they will be very unhappy, frustrated people. And the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously, they will join the ranks of the centrists….There will be no place for dissent.”

The demoralization is complete. When will Americans understand? According to Bezmenov, “when the military boot crashes him, then he will understand. But not before then.” 

It is time to wake up.  The government is not your friend.  The system will not be used to take down the system. It’s being used only to control and enslave and it doesn’t matter which political party you vote for. As we’ve said from the beginning this is a war for your mind.  The government will continue to alter the perception of the public to make sure they help usher in the New World Order, and people on the left and the right are still falling for the myth of government and will, therefore, be taken into the new system willingly.

Patriots, if they truly embodied it, would be more concerned with the freedom and liberty of all human begins, and less concerned about making sure the police state of enslavement and control grows.  Those on the right are the ones calling now, for big government and militarized police so powerful there will be no room for dissent from their embedded ideology and blind support of big government. That’s not freedom. That’s slavery to the ruling class. It’s time to use critical thinking skills and wake up.

We are in a period of crisis now. The next is normalization, and it lasts indefinitely with every single human being enslaved to the ruling class.  The only way to prevent this is to wake up and realize no one has the right to rule you. No one. There are no other options. You are either a slave or you are free. There is no gray area.

Bezmenov talks about how tanks and show of force by military will be used to “normalize” the situation. Strange. That’s exactly what’s happening, and people are STILL PROMOTING it and get upset when someone points out that all that force will eventually be turned on you.

If you are religious, pray. Because no human is coming to save you. You are going to have to wake up and save yourself and stop promoting slavery.

The COVID-19 “Dark Winter” PsyOp: Question Everything…

This article was originally published by Gary D. Barnett at Lew Rockwell. 

Those Who Planned The Enslavement of Mankind Warn Of “A Dark Winter” For Us

“If you would be a real seeker of truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things” René Descartes – Principles of Philosophy

The only real defense that is valid during this exercise in mass tyranny is a total refusal to comply with any and all government mandates. We are in the midst of the largest psychological operation (PSYOP) in the history of mankind.

By questioning everything concerning this manufactured “virus pandemic,” the resulting attitude cannot leave anything other than extreme doubt, and doubt is what can bring the masses out of the dark and into the light. The newest term being targeted toward the masses is the coming of the “Dark Winter,” which is nothing more than propaganda based lies meant to prepare the sheep for a planned continuation and escalation of this fake pandemic in order to bring about world domination.

Those Who Planned The Enslavement of Mankind Warn Of “A Dark Winter” For Us

Operation Dark Winter was the code name for a senior-level bio-terrorist attack simulation conducted from June 22–23, 2001, which was designed to carry out a mock version of a covert bio-weapons attack on the United States. The players involved in this were the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (CCBS) and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and the project designers were Randy Larsen and Mark DeMier of Analytic Services. It is very interesting that the same Johns Hopkins along with the evil Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation conducted Event 201, a coronavirus “simulation” just this past October, on the verge of this so-called pandemic. The same players, same objectives, but now it is real.

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

Rick Bright, the former director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, and claimed whistleblower, has been all over the mainstream news as of late projecting the “darkest winter in modern history.” Using this term was no accident, and in fact, was meant as propaganda to frighten and alarm the already cowardly and pathetic public. It was also meant to instill a mindset of a killing plague soon to come. This was completely staged in my opinion, but it will nonetheless be accepted by a society steeped in fear due to this “crisis.”

I would expect the term “dark winter” to become a new buzzword, as this new term the second time around, is strictly tied to the original scenario, but applied to today’s panic. None of this is a coincidence, none of it is accidental, but it is sinister. If things continue as they have been, and this lockdown remains in place, whether fully or partially, the anticipation of this “dark winter” will be on the minds of most all American sheep, especially if it is continually used as the threat of things to come.

With that in the minds of the people, they will be expecting the worst, and will probably get exactly what they expect; another planned pandemic.

Dark Psychology: A Comprehensive Guide To Learn The Realms of Manipulation, Deception, Human behavior, and Mind control

The current government plan, regardless of what is partially opened this summer, is to continue to mandate social distancing and masks as some sort of faux protection against this non-existent threat, to continue to shame those dissenters that refuse to comply with government orders, and to use more force to stop any dissent. In addition, testing as many people as possible with flawed tests will continue, and more demands to test will be forthcoming. While that is happening, the contact tracing of individuals will become more and more evident as tracking technology is advanced and implemented nationwide. All of this is leading to this current crisis stage’s ultimate goal, which is forced mass vaccination. As I wrote a few days ago, “the government has announced that a contract for $138 million has been issued to fund the production of 500 million pre-filled Covid-19 vaccine “injection devices,” this before any vaccine is available or tested.” As any should be able to see, this is a complex, but an easily identifiable plot that is coming to fruition very quickly and with little resistance. It is planned down to the last detail, just as were all the practice runs that were acted out in the past. I have always thought that bad people will expose what they are up to if only people would listen. Well, this time, they have told the public over and over again what was coming, but few listened.

The “injection devices” are already available, and now Trump is mobilizing the entire military to make war against the American people, by sending armed soldiers into the streets to vaccinate by force everyone in the country. Without mass resistance, this next phase will be successful, and then the following phase of population control would have already been implemented due to the poisoning, sterilizing, and possibly chipping of all those vaccinated. These plans are being accomplished out in the open, and with the consent, implied or not, of the people in this country.

Multiple agendas are being advanced, and the destruction of the economy and the resulting dependence of the population on government are going forward and being accepted. Pending legislation to print more money and dole it out to those out of work is already in process, as $3 trillion will most likely be distributed in small part to appease those not working, but most of that newly printed money will be used to continue the transfer of wealth to the few at the top. As debt, poverty, and bankruptcy continue to decimate the general population, the top of the heap will continue to buy up assets at depressed prices with taxpayer money, so in essence, those now starving are helping to enrich the perpetrators of this fraudulent virus scam.

We are definitely facing a horrible pandemic, but it is not due to any virus. The real pandemic is that the United States government and the enforcers for the controlling ruling class, are waging war on American citizens, and will not relent until the people themselves stop it. This totalitarian takeover will never cease by using the political system, as that corrupt system is why we are in this mess in the first place. A belief in the nation instead of self-led to nationalistic pride where none was deserved, and has brought complacency, weakness, and dependence on government, and left the people without the will to self-rule. The result is obvious, but more than that, it is now fatally dangerous. As I said earlier this year here:

“No vibrant society can exist in a state of obedience. While many great minds have discussed the natural desire of man to obey authority, including Sigmund Freud, this trait in man does not allow the capability to seek or claim freedom. The obedient are bound to a life of rule, as that is their nature.”

Freedom and independence can only be achieved and held by non-obedient, non-conforming individuals. Therefore, we must in order to defeat this criminal government force, become a nation of dissenters by not complying with any government order concerning this government created a fake crisis.

Just Keeping You Safe: The Federal Government Buys Riot Gear Citing “Pandemic”

They are gearing up for a battle. The Federal government has just purchased riot gear and increased its spending citing a “pandemic.” Last I checked, riot gear is to protect them from the public when we’ve finally had enough of their control, and has nothing to do with keeping us safe from a virus.

The purchase orders include requests for disposable cuffs, gas masks, ballistic helmets, and riot gloves, along with law enforcement protective equipment for federal police assigned to protect Veterans Affairs facilities. The orders were expedited under a special authorization “in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.”

The Veterans Affairs department, which manages nearly 1,500 health care facilities around the country, has also extended special contracts for coronavirus-related security services. The Intercept

The Inspector General report noted that there is “additional strain caused by the need for additional police presence for COVID-19-related screenings” of veterans at all VA health facilities and recommended the hiring of contract security services. Riot gear? For COVID-19 screenings? It sure sounds like they know they are enforcing tyranny and want to be protected when the majority of the public finally figures it out.

President Donald Trump signed off on this when he signed the CARES Act into law.

The CARES Act, the $2.2 trillion stimulus legislation passed in late March, also authorized $850 million for the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding program, a federal grant program to prepare law enforcement, correctional officers, and police for the crisis. The funds have been dispensed to local governments to pay for overtime costs, purchase protective supplies, and defray expenses related to emergency policing. The Intercept

Last month, the federal government secured a contract to purchase 100,000 body bags to dispose of “COVID-19 deaths.”  However, since we know based on their own numbers that not many are dying from the virus, those bags are likely for what’s coming next, and I don’t mean the fake “second wave” they already have planned.  I mean the uprising from the fake second wave.

As we have said from the beginning, the virus is not the problem here.  The problem is the tyrannical response by the government, and this IG report proves that they know they are pushing people to a point of rebellion.

Keep your eyes and ears open. Hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.

“When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.” -Attributed to Thomas Jefferson

$2,100 Gold: Middle-Class Verdict – DEATH ROW INFLATION!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends. 

Inflation is being HELD CAPTIVE at the hands of gold. On Friday, both the EURO and the BRITISH POUND hit ALL-TIME LOWS relative to gold. That’s another way of saying that in the Eurozone, as well as in the U.K., you’re shit out of luck if you held your excess savings in fiat currency because it COST YOU in a big way. Put differently, gold hit all-time highs, in both Euro and the Pound.

On September 5th, 2011, the nominal price of gold in U.S. dollars hit its all-time high of $1,917, subsequently falling all the way to $1,053, only to climb back up, now reaching $1,755/ounce.

Another 10% gain would have the dollar-denominated ounce at $1,930 (an all-time high). This can ACTUALLY happen before the end of this calendar year.

About 18% of global GDP, or 70% of America’s GDP, is tied to consumer spending. Right now, the average American is losing confidence in the economy, as you can see. They are uncertain that they’ll make their next debt payments (utilities, rent, mortgage, auto loan, credit card, student loan, and other obligations), mostly because their job is UP IN THE AIR or their business is standing on SHAKY GROUNDS.

When COVID-19 first reached American soil, the panic was largely due to the health aspect of it. The authorities feared the SYSTEM of hospitals couldn’t handle the load of ventilator-needing patients, so it rushed INTO A FRENZY of apocalyptic decisions, which took a massive toll on the economy, as well as on our LIBERTIES and constitutional rights.

As you can see above, consumer confidence PLUMMETED from a 19-year high last seen near the turn of the century, right before the Dotcom bubble burst and the 9/11 tragedy.

It’s now in line with the later stages of the 2009 recession but it will get MUCH WORSE before it gets better.

The reality is that we still don’t know MANY FUNDAMENTAL THINGS about COVID-19. Until we learn more, this is SIMULTANEOUSLY a health crisis and an economic PREDICAMENT.

This whole FIXATION with a vaccine is the wrong way to approach SOLVING the problems, and it will lead us up many DEAD ALLEYS. Therefore, I want to stress that while the government has an IMPORTANT ROLE in communicating a coherent message about the policies and direction it will take, the private sector will, AS ALWAYS, lead us out of this mess.

We need to find an IMMEDIATE STRATEGY for parents whose children aren’t getting back to school yet. Parents who are not being productive are both deteriorating in an economic sense, as well as mentally. We will have a national tragedy if an adequate solution isn’t implemented at once.

The elderly, the immune-compromised, or those who simply fear the virus need a solution as well. They need to be looked after until we know more about COVID-19.

Those who want to GO BACK to work and return to living a full life should be allowed to do so under the constitution; it is ABUSE OF POWER to interfere with people’s basic rights. As with the Influenza breakout of 1918, the Spanish Flu, we absolutely know that the simple act of wearing a mask helps in not spreading the disease. Washing hands for about 20 seconds frequently and properly is another easy habit to implement. Being physically distant from others by a couple of steps is another practice that is becoming part of the norm. Lastly, BEING OUTSIDE instead of confined is actually proven to be 1,900% SAFER.

Being out is SCIENTIFICALLY BETTER.

A vaccine isn’t the MAGIC PILL that Bill Gates and the rest of these supposed health experts are drooling over; we need to ADJUST now, as in today, to the new behavioral habits and go back to being productive.

Otherwise, this CRISIS hasn’t even BEGUN!

Because of this uncertainty, we see an opportunity with gold that’s UNPRECEDENTED, and we don’t have to wait TO SEE PROFITS – we’re making them hand over fist.

Gold is headed to $1,917, at which point it will make the news, creating an avalanche of retail demand that will take it over $2,000/ounce, creating MORE NEWS, which will take it even higher.

Be ready to EXIT POSITIONS as well. Gold and gold stocks are CYCLICAL.

Coronavirus CRISIS Hike Intelwars Mayor nashville property tax

‘It’s an insult’: Nashville mayor proposes 32% property tax hike amid crisis

Nashville Mayor John Cooper (D) floated a 31.7% property tax increase in his budget proposal this week, saying the city is facing “the greatest financial challenge” its seen in decades.

The citizens of Tennessee’s capital city have had a devastating year already, after being hit with deadly tornadoes and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But Nashville had a massive budget shortfall long before those tragedies struck, and critics say a dramatic tax hike on struggling residents and small businesses during the current crisis is “an insult.”

What are the details?

The Tennessean reported that “Cooper’s $2.44 billion budget proposal is about $115 million more than this year’s budget,” and noted that “after two deals to bring in an influx of cash faltered last year, Nashville’s house of cards collapsed, leading to a $42 million shortfall.”

Since the city was already deeply in the hole, being hit with a terrible storm followed by the coronavirus put Nashville in an even more dire situation — and the mayor says federal funds to help with both emergencies are not enough to bridge the gap.

So, Cooper insists, a property tax rate is necessary in order avoid layoffs of city employees, and that budget cuts would still be necessary. His proposal to raise rates by $1 would mean that the tax bill for a home valued at $250,000 would go up by roughly $625 per year.

WKRN-TV reported that business owners in the city “are in disbelief” over Cooper’s plan for the nearly 32 increase on property taxes. Just like for homeowners and renters, whether they own or lease, they will bear the brunt of the hike while many are out of business or out of work.

Will Newman, who owns Edley’s Bar-B-Que and Pancho and Lefty’s Cantina told the outlet, “It’s an insult to small businesses in Nashville that are literally at best on their knees, but most are on the ground. It’s like getting kicked in the gut with a steel toed boot.”

Newman said, “This will absolutely crush whatever restaurants are left. Crush it. Small businesses in Nashville are on life support and you know our plea now is to metro council: do the right thing and propose an alternate budget that is balanced in its approach and not shocking to the core.”

New Numbers: Economic Downturn Could Kill Hundreds of Thousands of Children in 2020

Even the most authoritarian of all regimes, the U.N., is warning about the upcoming death toll due to the economic destruction by governments. The United Nations is saying hundreds of thousands of children are likely to die in the upcoming year because of the economic depression caused by the lockdowns.

Let’s be clear: the pandemic didn’t cause the economy to crash. The tyrannical and draconian commands from governments and people willing to obey those commands crashed the economy.

On Thursday, the United Nations warned that in addition to the deaths of children, tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the economic crisis.  That’s far more severe than the virus has proven to be. The world body also said in a risk report that nearly 369 million children across 143 countries who normally rely on school meals for a reliable source of daily nutrition have now been forced to look elsewhere.

They Don’t Want You To Know The Truth! It’s Time To End The Tyrannical Lockdown Ourselves

“We must act now on each of these threats to our children,” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said. “Leaders must do everything in their power to cushion the impact of the pandemic. What started as a public health emergency has snowballed into a formidable test for the global promise to leave no one behind.”

Unfortunately, “leaders” have failed. “Leaders” have caused the economic depression and “leaders” cannot fix anything.  It’s up to the rest of us.

According to a report by Reuters, the U.N. report warned that “economic hardship experienced by families as a result of the global economic downturn could result in hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths in 2020, reversing the last 2 to 3 years of progress in reducing infant mortality within a single year.”

We can do something about this.  Governments have no desire to have a booming economy or see people capable of taking care of themselves.  What can we do? Disobey.  Open your business, go about your life, and live as you own yourself because you do.  Governments won’t end the shutdown and intend to drag out the misery for as long as possible to prove they have the power to do so.

We have to end the tyranny now and we have to do it ourselves.

Even evidence from tyrants is showing that the shutdown has done more harm than the virus. It is time to wake up to what’s being done and push back. We all need to let all people in government know that we know they want to use fear to control us, and we won’t be accepting that any longer by disobeying their tyrannical commands.

No, We Are Not “All In This Together”…

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

EDITOR’S NOTE: It seems crazy in this day and age that we have to congratulate people for speaking up when they know they are likely to be censored or shadow banned, discredited, lied about, or worse. But SHTFPlan would like to thank Brandon Smith for his continued adherence to the principles of freedom and liberty.  He’s speaking and writing about those regularly.  The upcoming months will be difficult, not because of the pandemic, but because of tyranny and oppression and suppression of thoughts that go against the totalitarian control being put in place as I type this. Thank you, Smith, for staying the course.

A common phrase I have heard lately all around the internet as well as all around the area I live whenever the pandemic situation is broached is that “We are all in this together, and WE will get through this together….” The sentiment is repeated like a religious mantra and I believe it is rooted in a collectivist reaction in the minds of many.

The idea is that if we all comfort each other by repeating the lie that we’re all in the same boat, and if everyone believes it, then the threat of the outbreak along with the economic collapse will somehow simply “disappear”.

The notion that “we are going to get through this together” seems to be based on the assumption that the crisis is going to move quickly, and if we hold tight, our sacrifice will be minimal and all will go back to the way things were before. This is simply not so.

I highly respect the ideal of giving hope to others whenever possible (as Aragorn says in Return Of The King “I give hope to men.  I keep none for myself”). However, hope has to come from a legitimate place. It has to be based on some reality. There are too many lies driving public psychology right now to give concrete hope to anyone. The lies have to land, they have to touch the ground, and the facts have to hit people hard before we can then come to an understanding of what we have to do to survive this event. In the meantime, the majority of people are going to be trapped in fantasy land, hypnotized by delusions of magical cures and economic silver bullets that will lead to salvation “in just two more weeks”.

On top of all that, the American public has never been more divided than it is right now. Sure, we can soak in a bathtub of brain-dead dreams with worn-out elitist celebrities like Madonna, telling us that the virus “makes us all equal”, but does it really? I’m sorry, but the truth that not all people are equal is about to become more apparent than ever before.

The pandemic along with the economic collapse is going to separate people into clearly definable categories, and many of these groups will be in direct conflict with each other:

The Prepared

These are the people that saw this event coming ahead of time and spent many months if not many years stocking supplies and training to survive it. The Prepared were smarter and had more insight into the reality of the situation than most people. If we were to apply evolutionary standards then The Prepared would be at the top of the food chain, the alpha species, but let’s not let this go to our heads; there are many downsides to being a member of The Prepared.

In a just world, the masses would be going to The Prepared for answers to the crisis, and some do, but overall I think The Prepared will be more hated for their predictive capabilities than admired. This is why prepared people have to stick together, organize and protect one another; because the day is coming when they will be targeted as enemies of the collective.

The Unprepared

The Unprepared are not all alike. There are people who are arrogant and ignored all evidence of collapse presented to them ahead of time, and now they are going to suffer for that. These are the people I call “grasshoppers”, as in the fable of ‘The Ant And The Grasshopper’. They danced and played all summer and laughed at all the warnings of impending winter. These are the people who will act indignant and vicious when they are deprived of comfort, and they will demand that the ants give up their preps to save them (which is not going to happen).

There are other people who were merely oblivious to the situation and are mostly innocent in their lack of preparation They just weren’t exposed to the available information for whatever reason. They live decent hard-working lives and they are mostly innocent in all of this. They too will be faced with hard decisions in the near future – Some of them will try to prepare as best they can while the crisis is still in its early stages. Others will join the grasshoppers out of fear and demand a draconian government response.

The Independents

The Independents are people that will seek to solve the problems surrounding the crisis with their own ingenuity. They will not demand help from the government, nor will they demand that other people “share” their resources with them out of a sense of entitlement. They will ask for help where needed, but they will try to do the best they can to endure the crisis without trying to force others to make things easier for them.

The Independents will understand the difference between collectivism and voluntary organization. The first strategy requires force and fear, the second strategy does not. The Collectivists will try to interfere or even destroy The Independents, because if they are successful in organizing voluntarily and becoming prosperous through free market innovation then this will prove that the collectivist ideology is unnecessary and outdated. The Collectivists would rather “win” than be right in their thinking.

The Collectivists

Collectivist people will applaud the vast expansion of government power and control because within their cult religion government is god. To them, the pandemic is not a curse but a blessing, because it gives them a rationale to take part in a grand subjugation of other people and feel the power they have always wanted to feel. These are the people with inherent narcissistic and sociopathic traits within our culture. They represent only 1% to 5% of the total population, but they are predatory and single-minded in their goal to control others and feed off the world like parasites.

These people are not always elites. In fact, most of them are just like you and me in terms of status and income.  In times of great crisis, these creatures tend to rise to the surface and reveal themselves.  They feel particularly energized within environments that fuel tyranny; they love the feeling of power and will exploit crisis events as an excuse to act as evil as they always wanted to but could not during normal times.  Take for example Doctor John Rademaker in Louisville, Kentucky who attacked a group of girls and tried to strangle one of them for “not social distancing”.  Once we consider the fact that by attacking the girls he was also breaking social distancing guidelines, it becomes clear that people like this don’t actually care about their own rules, they only care that OTHER PEOPLE follow those rules.

They want to be the observers like the Soviet Cheka.  They know will never be at the top of the power totem pole, so they ride the coattails of tyranny and feed on whatever scraps of power they can get.

These people seem like they would not work well with others, but they do tend to congregate in groups as long as there is mutual gain to be had.  They have all the character qualities of global elites including a complete lack of empathy, a penchant for self-worship and idolization, zero belief in anything greater than themselves, a propensity towards deceit and violence to get what they want, and using disasters to their advantage.

The Global Elites

This is a tiny group of creatures that benefit the most from the pandemic crisis.  Through this disaster they will be able to absorb vast amounts of hard assets for pennies on the dollar, devouring wealth and property from the middle class and changing the entire economy into something unrecognizable.  The elites don’t want your property and wealth simply because they are greedy; they want your property and wealth because they don’t want YOU to have any.  They want to end the concept of private property for all time, for without property and the ability to accumulate wealth through our labors the masses are always dependent on the government for their survival.

Beyond this, the ultimate goal of the elites is a one-world cashless society, as well as a one-world government.  Already, the US Senate is considering a bill that would create a digital dollar and a digital wallet system to replace paper currency.  Other nations have begun going cashless, and the coronavirus is being used as an excuse to speed up the process.  The UN’s World Health Organization has specifically called for going cashless as well.  Once the public is trapped into a digital system, they will never be able to trade without using the banks as the middle-men, and all transactions will be tracked.  Nothing will be private ever again, and with the push of a button what little wealth you are allowed to accumulate can be frozen within the new socialist control culture.  You will be at the mercy of the government and the banks.

Moving past the economic the elites have bigger dreams of a massive surveillance society in which every person is tracked 24 hours a day.  Bill Gates is all over the mainstream news lately promoting the idea of tracking apps (like those already being used in China) to “fight the coronavirus”.  Apple and Google are pushing the agenda as well and are ready to launch tracking apps whenever the government is ready to write them into law.

The Global Elites do not care about saving lives.  They do not care about saving the economy as we know it.  They do not care about political affiliations.  They are on their own side, and they only care about power.  Like I said, we are NOT all in this together.

The Sheeple

Sheeple are people that have no capacity for self-leadership. They will follow whoever they think has the best chance of securing their survival, even if those people have evil intentions. Sheeple are not necessarily nefarious minded, they just don’t care about the bigger picture and they only see what is right in front of them. This is a different mindset from those of us that look for leadership in people that display integrity, experience, and competence; Sheeple don’t care about any of that. They just want to feel protected and secure no matter what, even if they have to sacrifice their freedoms in exchange for that feeling. They are a prime target for The Collectivists and The Global Elites.

Trying to talk sense to sheeple is almost impossible. They will not listen. You probably know a few Sheeple in your life who even now in the midst of a global collapse still think this crisis will be over in a matter of weeks and that the government will save them. Attempting to convince them otherwise is a waste of time.

All you can do is provide a better solution than the collectivists and hope The Sheeple follow your lead instead of the evil empire’s when the crash hits hardest.

Irreconcilable Differences

These different types of people are mostly at odds with each other. There is no “we”, there is no “us” and there is no “getting through this thing together”. I will say that the vast majority of people do have a conscience, unlike the globalists that created this calamity in the first place, but that does not mean we will all end up on the same team. The dark magic of chaos is that it can be used to convince otherwise peaceful people to support horrifying tyranny in the name of the “greater good”.

Beware anyone promoting the notion that we are “all in this together”; this is the gateway to collectivism and it is a blatant lie. As mentioned, there are establishment elites that plan to gain from this event while the rest of us suffer; they are NOT on our side or in our boat. They will use the pandemic and the simultaneous economic collapse (which they have engineered) to maneuver the public into abandoning their freedoms in the name of collective safety.

There are useful idiots and narcopaths out there that thrive in these types of unstable environments. They too are vampires seeking to bleed people dry while using the disaster as cover. These are the people screaming at strangers walking down the street that they need to “go back home” and “flatten the curve”. These are the people calling the cops on their neighbors for talking in a group bigger than two or three. These are the local government officials calling for bans on church services even when they are held outside and follow the “guidelines” of social distancing. These are the people calling preppers “hoarders” and demanding that their supplies be redistributed. These are the people that revel in authoritarianism.

Understand that there are many sides to this conflict and very few of them are honorable. Listen to your conscience, listen to evidence, truth and reason, and choose your side wisely

10 Foodss To Help You Start Your Emergency Food Storage

Thank You, ShtfPlan.com Staff

Food storage is one of the first things you should consider when beginning to prepare for a crisis like the one we are in now, or the aftermath of this one, which will be far more severe. Other than water, your focus should be on food and how to make sure you’ve got enough.

The ten items that I’ve listed below are going to be a good way to start preparing.  They can still be purchased right now and will offer decent nutritional content when there’s no food anywhere else. The sooner you start, the better.   You may choose to purchase these items all at once, or you can pick up one or two items from the list each time you go grocery shopping.

  1. 20 lbs. of rice – this is a great filler and can be easily added to soups to bulk up the meal.
  2. 20 lbs. of beans black and pinto beans are both good choices. Beans are filling and nutrient-dense. You can get white beans or kidney beans too.  Really, just get something you’ll want to eat.
  3. 24 cans of meat – get something you like.  If you don’t like spam, don’t buy it.  We store canned chicken because that’s something everyone likes and will eat.
  4. 24 cans of vegetables – getting a variety of different vegetables could help with food boredom if you actually have to start eating from your prepper pantry, but it can be easier to just buy a whole bundle of the same canned vegetables.
  5. 24 cans of soup/broth – Again, but what you like and consider different kinds of soup.
  6. 12 large cans of spaghetti sauce – this stuff is cheap and it’s easy to make a quick meal out of it.  You can even heat it up without having pasta in a pinch and add some water for a tomato soup.
  7. 2 lbs. peanut butter – it won’t hurt to have more peanut butter.  It’s universally liked and lasts for years when stored properly and is full of healthy fats and proteins.
  8. 5 lbs. of salt to cure meat or season food.
  9. 10 lbs. pancake mix – look for one that only requires the addition of water to make up a batch of batter. These can be made for any meal and eaten with peanut butter, jam, or honey.
  10. 1 gallon of cooking oil – try to choose something like olive oil or coconut oil because those healthy fats will be a lot better for you.

Please don’t forget to have a working can opener on hand. These are fairly inexpensive but it will be worth having to get in your canned foods if you have to. You don’t have to spend a lot on a can opener, the only suggestion is to get one of decent quality that won’t break after a few uses and make sure it’s manual in case you need to use it in the absence of electricity.

Eating healthy may not be our biggest concern if we have to dip into our prepper pantry.  But during a pandemic such as the one we’re all living through now, it is beneficial to make sure your body has a fighting chance if you do come in contact with a viral infection.

These foods can hopefully help some people begin to start storing food and organizing a prepper pantry.  These aren’t, by any means, all of the foods you can store, but they are a good starting point for those just beginning.

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.

Privacy Violation: Google Publishes Location Data During “Lockdown”

In what can only be described as a major basic human rights violation, Google has published the location data fo those who they say are violating the lockdown orders handed down by governments. “Community Mobility Reports” show where we’re going amid the lockdown, according to Google.

This pandemic has come at a great cost to all of humanity.  Rights and liberty have gone and in place of them, a false sense of security. This is evident in Google’s new reports. Google has unveiled the COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports in an effort to help public health officials understand how people are moving about in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The reports show location data from folks who have agreed to share their location history with Google in order to show places that are following instructions to shelter in place — or not.

“As global communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increasing emphasis on public health strategies, like social distancing measures, to slow the rate of transmission,” wrote Google Geo SVP Jen Fitzpatrick according to Engadget. “In Google Maps, we use aggregated, anonymized data showing how busy certain types of places are—helping identify when a local business tends to be the most crowded. We have heard from public health officials that this same type of aggregated, anonymized data could be helpful as they make critical decisions to combat COVID-19.”

These reports are designed to “shame” and force Americans to fall victim to the propaganda.

Here in France, as shown in the top image, there has been a massive decline in movement to most categories — up to 88 percent — with a 56 percent drop in workplace travel and an 18 percent increase in people staying at home. That’s down to a government-mandated lockdown (confinement) that prohibits any unnecessary travel, with penalties ranging from fines up to 1,500 euros and even prison time for extreme recidivists.

In California, which has implemented some of the strictest confinement rules in the US, we see a drop of just 50 percent in retail and recreation zones. Those rules are still essentially self-enforced, however, which could explain why France has started flattening its infection curve, while the US curve is a rocket ship traveling straight up. –Engadget

NPR Station Is CENSORING Donald Trump as MSM Pushes Totalitarian Propaganda

Google has also said its also collaborating with epidemiologists to create an updated dataset of anonymized aggregated data, “to better understand and forecast the pandemic,” the company said.  Which basically means we should all prepare for more slavery and an enhanced Orwellian state.

Prepare for social unrest as people figure out they were duped into giving up their livelihood in the face of this pandemic.  While it’s still a good idea to not spread this virus around, preparing for a pandemic now is a waste of time.  Once people figure out that a $1200 stimulus check will never be able to replace their life’s work, things could get really ugly. This is a recipe for massive rioting and social unrest on a scale never before seen that will make this pandemic look like child’s play.

The government is ushering in a totalitarian and Orwellian state the likes of which will eliminate human rights and dignity for the foreseeable future.  The worst part is that people are allowing it in the name of “safety.”

Body common cold Coronavirus CRISIS Emergency Preparedness face masks Fear Flu foods Headline News Health Immune System Intelwars pandemic panic Preparedness Prepping stockpiling survival viral infections

Prep Your Immune System To Fight Off Viruses

Preparing for a pandemic is only half what you stockpile.  The other half is fortifying your body and its immune system against viral infections.  The better health you are in, the more likely you will be to not get sick in the first place or to beat the illness swiftly.

Make sure you have some personal protective equipment, especially if you’re older or have underlying health conditions, as the coronavirus will likely be more severe if you contract it.  Most suggest using a properly fitted face mask (N95 or higher) and keeping your distance from others while in public.  You could also wear safety goggles if you’d like.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOME (QUARANTINE) FOR A PANDEMIC

Your health should come first though!  Your immune system is your first line of defense against any viral infection.  Once a virus is introduced, the body’s immune system goes into high gear to fight back.  We’ve written extensively on some things you can do to improve your immune system.

Before you start stockpiling for the next crisis or pandemic (or at least in tandem) you should try to get as healthy as possible. Keep your weight in a healthy range, avoid the excess consumption of alcohol, and try to quit smoking.  Get an adequate amount of sleep. You should also cut out as much processed food and sugar as you can.  It’s not good for you, and a healthy gut can go a long way to help your body fight off an infection.  Add more vegetables to your diet and make sure you are eating healthy fats such as avocados or olive oil.

You should also exercise some and do some light stretching if possible. Even now, while most of us are on lockdown, you should move a little.  There are thousands of videos on YouTube of home workouts you can do. This is not new information.  We all should be as healthy as we can be.

Simple Prepper Hacks To AVOID Getting The Flu

The Truth About CBD, the Immune System and Coronavirus COVID19

Prep For Cold & Flu Season: How To Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Make sure you are prepared and not scared.  Stress is not good for the body and can negatively impact your immune system.  If you’re properly prepared for a crisis, you won’t be stressed out.  Panicking and living in fear can raise the stress hormone cortisol making it harder to fight off a virus.

You should also improve your handwashing. This step is vital at the prevention of most viruses, such as the novel coronavirus, the rhinovirus (common cold) and the flu.  Take the time to wash your hands well and don’t touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth unless you’ve washed your hands.  Just this one small step that could go far when it comes to combating the spread of communicable diseases.

Prepping For The Coronavirus: Hand Washing Is Vital

There’s no time like the present to start preparing or getting the body in better shape for optimum health and wellness.

Bailout communism Coronavirus COVID-19 CRISIS Economy fiscal relief package GOP proposal Headline News Intelwars liberal agenda money Nancy Pelosi pandemic political elitists Politicians Rahm Emanuel Socialists

Democrats Try To Use COVID-19 To Push Their Socialist Agenda

In a bit of not-so-surprising news, democrat politicians have decided that during the coronavirus pandemic, they should push a liberal agenda.  In the words of infamous socialist Rahm Emanuel, Democrats will “never allow a crisis to go to waste.”

Democrats used their stimulus bill, which was a response to the GOP’s proposal, to pack it with funding to advance a liberal communist agenda.

Both Republican and Democratic senators had spent several days negotiating a nearly $2 trillion package that would provide financial assistance to workers, small businesses, large corporations, and certain industries hit particularly hard by the economic shutdown in response to the public health crisis.
