Facebook Bans The Phrase “Stop The Steal” Ahead Of Biden’s Inaguration

Facebook is going all-in on their censorship campaign ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration in 8 days. The social media giant has now banned the phrase “stop the steal” from their platform.

Any content with the blacklisted phrase is being removed from Facebook and Instagram, under the Coordinating Harm policy, the company announced on Monday evening. The vice president for Integrity Guy Rosen and vice president for Global Policy Management Monika Bickert claimed that the phrase was used “by those involved in Wednesday’s violence in DC” and cited “continued attempts to organize events against the outcome of the US presidential election that can lead to violence,” according to reports by RT. “We’re taking additional steps and using the same teams and technologies we used during the general election to stop misinformation and content that could incite further violence during these next few weeks,” Rosen and Bickert wrote.

In addition to the “indefinite suspension” of President Trump’s account announced on Thursday, Facebook is keeping the temporary ban on all US political advertising and “connecting people with reliable information and high-quality news about the inauguration and the transition process.”

“After the inauguration, our label on posts that attempt to delegitimize the election results will reflect that Joe Biden is the sitting president,” wrote Bickert and Rosen. –RT

For months, social media giants have labeled any post challenging the validity of the 2020 presidential election as“disputed” or challenged by their coterie of fact-checkers. This includes posts by Donald Trump that were alleging voter irregularities.  Last Wednesday’s unrest at the Capitol provided Big Tech with a pretext to censor and purge accounts outright, including those of the president himself.

The outright deletion of content before Biden is even inaugurated is an escalation from Facebook’s actions prior to the election, when they “shadowbanned” all mention of a New York Poststory about Biden’s son Hunter and the incriminating emails found on a laptop recovered from a Delaware repair shop. Twitter had locked the Post’s account, but it later emerged that Facebook’s soft censorship turned out to be far more effective. –RT

The clampdown on free speech is here. Once that begins, history has proven that it doesn’t end well.

America control controllers deductions Fascism Federal Reserve Headline News INCOME INEQUALITY Injustice Intelwars legalized looting liars masses NEO-FEUDALISM plundered political parasites rigged system ruling class taxation is theft TAXES wake up War war on wealth Wealth wealth gap wealthy

The Coming War on Wealth and the Wealthy

This article was originally published by Charles Hugh Smith at Of Two Minds Blog. 

Here’s looking at you, Federal Reserve–thanks for perfecting ‘legalized looting’ and neofeudalism in America.

The problem with pushing a pendulum to its maximum extreme on one end is that it will swing back to the other extreme minus a tiny bit of friction.

America has pushed wealth/income inequality, unfairness, and legalized looting to the maximum extreme. Now it will experience the swing back to the other extreme. This will manifest in a number of ways, one of which is a self-organizing populist war on wealth and the wealthy.

To say the system is rigged to benefit the already-wealthy and powerful is a gross understatement. Take the tax code as an example–thousands of pages of arcane tax breaks and giveaways passed by a thoroughly corrupted Congress and thousands of more pages of arcane regulations and legal precedents.

How many pages apply to the bottom 95% of American taxpayers? Very few. There are the standard deductions for mortgage interest, healthcare costs, etc., but virtually no other tax breaks. Very few pages apply to even the 99%–go talk to a CPA and you’ll find there are no more tax breaks for a sole proprietor making $500,000 in earned income than there are for a sole proprietor making $50,000.

99.9% of the tax code benefits the top 0.1% and the corporations, LLCs, and philanthro-capitalist foundations and trusts they own/control. Stripped of artifice and spin, America’s tax code is nothing but legalized looting. This is only one small slice of the entire pie of legalized looting, of course, but it’s one we can all understand.

A sole proprietor pays 15.3% in Social Security and Medicare taxes. Why don’t America’s billionaires pay 15.3% in Social Security and Medicare taxes? Aren’t Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid the bedrock social safety net programs of the American people? Then why does a struggling sole proprietor pay 15.3% tax to support these essential programs and billionaires pay essentially zero?

There’s a term for this disparity/injustice/unfairness: legalized looting. The super-wealthy pay essentially zero percent of their income and wealth to the programs that provide basic economic security for the disabled/elderly citizenry, while Jose the sole proprietor pays 15.3% of every dollar he earns.

So explain to us again why Mr. Buffett can’t afford to pay 15.3% of every dollar of his income to help fund basic economic security for the disabled/elderly. In a system of even the most basic fairness, every dollar of income would be taxed at the same rate. In a system of even the most basic fairness, those with incomes of $100 million would pay the same 15.3% Social Security and Medicare tax as the sole proprietor earning $100,000.

Needless to say, if this most basic fairness was applied to America’s wealthy and powerful, these programs would not be facing insolvency.

If Joe the sole proprietor hits the big time, he pays 32% federal tax over $165,000, 35% over $210,000, and 37% over $524,000. If we add 15.3% to 37%, we get 52.3%. How many of America’s super-wealthy / billionaires pay 52% in Social Security-Medicare and income taxes? Zero.

Could America’s super-wealthy / billionaires afford to pay 52%? Of course, they could–they own the majority of all financial assets and skim the majority of all income. But they won’t, because the system is rigged to benefit the few at the expense of the many via legalized looting.

It isn’t just the inequality of ownership of capital and power that enrages the oppressed; it’s the blatant unfairness of our neo-feudal/neocolonial system. As I explained in Neofeudalism and the Neocolonial-Financialization Model (May 24, 2012) and Welcome to Neocolonialism, Exploited Peasants! (October 21, 2016), the Financial Nobility have “come home” and applied the same rapacious exploitation they perfected in colonialism to the domestic populace.

Here’s looking at you, Federal Reserve–thanks for perfecting legalized looting and neofeudalism in America.

The gulf between the lavishly praised American ideals and the putrid, corrupt reality of America’s neo-feudal system is wider than the Grand Canyon. As the pendulum accelerates to an extreme equal but opposite to the current extremes of unfairness, exploitation, and legalized looting, those who have suffered the consequences of this systemic inequality will find expression in whatever ways are available.

Since it’s difficult to get to the protected compounds of the super-wealthy, the signifiers of the merely wealthy will offer readily available targets. The new Tesla won’t just get keyed; it will be “reworked,” to the great satisfaction of the “workers.”

Please note that I am not promoting a war on wealth and the wealthy, I am merely pointing out that it is as inevitable as the gravity pulling the pendulum.

The war on wealth and the wealthy will manifest politically, socially, and economically. It won’t be a tightly controlled, top-down movement. It will be spontaneous, self-organizing, and unquenchable.

If you don’t understand why a war on wealth and the wealthy is inevitable, please study this chart: the way of the Tao is reversal.

bill gates billionaires Carmen Ang crony corporatism elitists Elon Musk Fascism Federal Reserve government is slavery Headline News Intelwars Jeff Bezos job loss Masters Money Creation Police State POVERTY rich ruling class slaves Stock Market wealth gap

The Rich Got Richer During COVID-19. Here’s How American Billionaires Performed

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

We’ve all been affected by the pandemic-induced mayhem of 2020. But, as Visual Capitalist’s Carmen Ang noteswhen it comes to finances, some have fared far better than others.

While job loss persists for Americans making less than $20 an hour, the rich have gotten richer. More specifically, the most wealthy American billionaires have seen their net worth bounce back dramatically, thanks to strong stock market performance.

Here’s a look at who’s gotten richer since the market bottom in March 2020, and just how much their net worth has increased since then:

Billionaire Net Worth Growth in 2020

Between March’s market bottom and December 2020, the billionaires included on this list grew their wealth by 57% on average. Interestingly, that’s about 10 percentage points higher than the overall growth of the S&P 500 index during the same time period.

Elon Musk saw the highest increase during this period, with a $129 billion boost in net worth—that’s a whopping 523% in gains.

This makes sense considering the year Musk has had. Tesla’s market value has skyrocketed throughout 2020, and SpaceX’s long-term valuation doubled after making some monumental strides in the private space industry.

Jeff Bezos saw the second-highest growth in net worth with a $74 billion increase. This isn’t surprising, given that Amazon’s stock price has climbed 69% since the beginning of 2020.

But Amazon hasn’t been the only company to benefit from the accelerated e-commerce market—other retailers, like Nike, have also seen a significant boost in online sales this year as well.

Billionaire Wealth, in General, is Up

It’s not just the billionaires on this list that have increased their wealth. In fact, during the pandemic, billionaire wealth on average has increased 27% worldwide. Growth has been exceptionally strong in tech and healthcare.

Will things level out post-pandemic, or will the wealth gap continue to grow?

basic human rights control COVID-19 Fascism give up liberty government is the problem Headline News Intelwars LIES Mainstream media Mike Ryan Politicians propaganda ruling class SLAVERY Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus World Health Organization

WHO Says COVID Scamdemic is “NOT The Big One”

As mainstream media outlets everywhere continue to warn of the mutant strain of COVID-19, the World Health Organization says it’s not “the big one.”  The WHO then suggests we “prepare” for the big one by giving up all of our basic human rights.

“[O]ne thing we need to take from this pandemic, with all of the tragedy and loss, is we need to get our act together. We need to honor those we’ve lost by getting better at what we do every day,” says a WHO expert, Mike Ryan according to Market Watch. 

“But this is not necessarily the big one,” he said. “This is a wake-up call. We are learning now how to do things better — science, logistics, training, and governance, how to communicate better. But the planet is fragile. We live in an increasingly complex global society. These threats will continue. If there is one thing we need to take from this pandemic, with all of the tragedy and loss, [it] is [that] we need to get our act together. We need to honor those we’ve lost by getting better at what we do every day.”

Whenever an elitist or member of the ruling class discusses “governance” they mean control and the increased enslavement of the public. Ryan, who is the WHO’s head of emergencies, wants what all rulers want: control over everyone else. And the vaccine is all a part of the grand plan for worldwide slavery.

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus hailed the cooperation between the private and public sectors that has led to the development of several vaccines in record time (he’s literally applauding fascism: the merger between government and corporations), which are now being rolled out around the world. That “is an incredible scientific achievement,” he said.

Nurse Who Took COVID-19 Vaccine Tests Positive For COVID-19

The panic over the “mutant strain” is already starting with the fear-mongering mass media, which are quickly becoming the world’s latest domestic terrorism organization.

The WHO is working closely with scientists to understand the new variants of COVID-19 that have emerged in the U.K. and South Africa and evaluate whether they spread more quickly or make people sicker and have any potential impact on testing, treatments, and vaccines. –Market Watch

If you haven’t figured out that this whole scam isn’t about health, it’s about control, the brainwashing into an obedient slave to the ruling class and other “authorities” could be permanent for you.

BLATANT CENSORSHIP: The Great YouTube PURGE

A massive YouTube purge has taken place. Several channels have been removed from the platform proving truth is treason in the empire of lies.

Let me preface this by saying that whether you do or do not agree with the content published by some channels on YouTube, no one deserves to have the boot of tyranny on their throat or their voice silenced for any reason. Ever.   “When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.” – George R.R. Martin.

As far as I, personally am concerned, the content published on any of the sites purged is irrelevant. Censorship in any and all forms is immoral all the time.

“Censorship is to society what cancer is to the body.” –Brian, High Impact TV

“Those who burn books today will be burning bodies tomorrow,” Brian says.  Make no mistake, this is digital book burning. It’s time to come together and stand up for basic fundamental human rights. This is extremely serious, and it’s no exaggeration to say so.

After Brainwashing People For Decades, MSM and Governments Are Losing Control of People

This blatant censorship says one thing: the mainstream media and the controllers who pull the strings are scared. If they weren’t terrified of us, they wouldn’t be trying so hard to shut any of us up. The truth will prevail regardless.

Here is the list of the channels that we know about that were removed just today:

Destroying the Illusion

Redpill78

PrayingMedic

Joe M

IPOT

X22 Report

Edge of Wonder

SGT Report

Spaceshot76

WokeSocieties

Amazing Polly

Truth & Art TV

PatriotsSoapbox

Dustin Nemos

InTheMatrixxx

AndWeKnow

Stroppy Me

JustInformed Talk

MouthyBuddha

Know_More_News

The Last American Vagabond

Titus Frost

Dollar Vigilante

World Alternative Media

Try to find as many of these as you can on Bitchute or Steemit. Please try to take a few minutes to find any of these creators and support them on alternate sites.  This is economic terrorism. These people’s livelihoods were removed because they disagree with the official narrative.

Sean from SGT Report is trying to help et the word out about this. But honestly, as Brian from High Impact TV says is “we are all on borrowed time” now. This proves it. Please Tweet to @TeamYouTube and ask them to reverse this for any and all of these channels. I would happily do the same for you regardless of whether I agree with what you are saying or not. This is tyrannical enslavement.

SGT Report, for example, had access to both of his channels terminated for releasing a video last night about the new Hunter Biden emails, and the Seal Team 6 information coming from whistleblower Allen Parrot and Benghazi whistleblower Nick Noe.  Sean’s work can still be seen at SGTreport.TV and on Patreon and Bitchute (link above).

We need to rise up and stand together. We DO NOT have to agree on everything. But it’s time to call a spade a spade. The system is eliminating people and that should be intolerable to every single human being with an ounce of compassion left in their soul.

If you have been one of those constantly asking in the comments what you can do, you can at least stand against this and support these silenced channels and those who run them. It’s time to stand against this corrupt system of censorship and fascism.

Get ready, because things could get extremely intense from here.

beast system communism economic terrorists Emergency Preparedness enemy of the states evil classists experts Fascism financial decay governments Great Depression Headline News Intelwars lockdowns Marxists Nazis plandemic Police State scamdemic spanish flu Third Reich totalitarian tyranny

The Global Police State Is Swiftly Rising

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

There is always an excuse for the enforcement of totalitarian restrictions on the public. There is always a reason.  And, often these reasons are engineered to sound logical and practical at the time.

In Germany after WWI and into the early 1930s Bolshevik activists and the German Communist Party (KPD) engaged in aggressive economic sabotage, street violence, and even assassinations. This along with the Great Depression led to German middle-class support for the National Socialist Party and the Third Reich (fascism).  Much of history’s focus is on the horrors of the Nazis, but many people are unaware of the extreme threat of the communist revolution in Europe during this era, a threat which was used by the Nazis as a perfect rationale for constructing a police state. Arguably, without the existence of hardline communism, the fascists never would have had the public support needed to rise to power.

In Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, the Cheka secret police were established in the name of preventing “counter-revolution”. This is an interesting aspect common to communism in particular; they desperately cling to the narrative that THEY are the “revolutionaries”, even when they have all the power. Thus, the revolution never ends because there are always people who disagree with communism. Anyone who refuses to comply with Marxist mandates becomes an imperialist enemy and bogeyman and is held up as an example of why the revolution must perpetually continue. The police state must exist forever to root out the evil classists lurking in the shadows.

During the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, a virus with a much higher death rate among younger Americans compared to today’s coronavirus, major US cities such as New Orleans instituted martial law measures and lockdowns on the economy; closing schools, churches, public transportation, and places of leisure. Of course, despite claims in the wake of COVID, these measures did little to nothing to stop the spread of the virus and the public became frustrated with their inability to function in the day-to-day economy (sound familiar). The population began to rebel against restrictions that were leading to financial decay, and there was little governments could do about it.

I’ve noticed that the mainstream media has attempted in the past six months to rewrite the history of the Spanish Flu as if martial law measures were a success, even though ultimately the flu ran its natural course in the majority of US cities. Infections and deaths continued unabated until the virus burned itself out and disappeared (no working vaccine was ever produced though there were many failed attempts based on the assumption that the disease was bacterial). Martial law actions only served to drag out the timeline of the virus.

One could argue that a hundred years ago governments did not have the same tools at their disposal as they do now. But are we really that much further ahead? Virologists have been working on an effective SARS vaccine for almost two decades with little success; the idea that they could come up with a working vaccine for COVID in the span of a year (as many governments are suggesting) seems absurd. History shows us that when vaccines are rushed into production by authorities, very bad things happen.

Regardless of lockdown measures, infection rates continue to climb in many nations, thereby justifying EVEN LONGER or more frequent lockdowns. This creates an endless cycle of economic instability which the public cannot endure, and many people are beginning to wonder what purpose of the pandemic restrictions serve? It’s obviously not to slow the virus and save lives as an effective vaccine is unlikely to be developed in time for the lockdowns to matter. But, if you wanted to quickly implement a totalitarian system, then using a global health threat as justification might be the ticket.

The problem for the establishment will be this: How can they keep the tyranny going once they have it? Ultimately, for a totalitarian system to work it NEEDS a large portion of the public to support it on principle. The public has to believe that the loss of their liberties is necessary to their survival for the long term.

What I find most interesting is the disparity in response to the two sides of the crisis today. Just as in the early part of the 20th century, we have a communist uprising as well as a global pandemic that the public is growing increasingly suspicious of. How the government treats each problem is obviously different.

For example, the law enforcement response to the BLM and ANTIFA riots has been rather subdued and passive. I was in Pittsburgh for the G20 event in 2009 and I can tell you from experience that the police response was vicious and highly coordinated, and this was against groups that were doing nothing more than chanting slogans in the street without a permit from the city (the city government only gave out ONE protest permit while the G20 were present in Pittsburgh).

There was no rioting and minimal damage to private property, yet law enforcement deployed full force measures including Spartan formations, sound cannons, rubber bullets, and armored vehicles. Watch video footage of the G20 in Pittsburgh and then compare it to the riots in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, etc. It should become clear to you that for some reason police are being ordered to hold back the majority of the time.

Another glaring issue is the media response to the riots. They refer to the protests as exclusively peaceful despite mass looting, destruction of private property, and violence. They treat BLM as sacrosanct and untouchable and act as an attack dog against anyone criticizing the actions of the organization. The issue of social distancing and virus spread is dismissed or ignored when it comes to BLM.

By extension, examine the mainstream media response to the protests against coronavirus lockdown restrictions. No riots, no looting, no violence on the part of conservative and moderate protesters, yet the media demonizes them as if they are a threat to the very fabric of our society. Look at how quick authorities have been to arrest people who refuse to follow lockdown restrictions, and take into account how aggressive arrests have been in other countries like Australia, Spain, or the UK for doing nothing more than posting messages on Facebook or not wearing a mask on the street.

I think my point here is clear: The establishment supports social justice violence and unrest and is cracking down hard on any resistance to medical tyranny. The hypocrisy is evident.

But this brings up some questions; such as why they are so keen to allow the BLM riots to continue? As noted at the beginning of this article, I think the strategy is evident – It’s a two-pronged attempt, a bait and switch: If the Marxists are successful and meet little resistance from the public then they will tear down the current system, and the elitists’ institutions that fund them like George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and the Ford Foundation will use the opportunity to build an Orwellian collectivist society from the ashes.

On the other hand, as in Germany in the 1930s, the civil unrest caused by hard-left groups could also convince the general public that martial law measures are an acceptable solution and make them willing to sacrifice constitutional protections in order to rid themselves of the threat. There have been examples of this recently when federal agents initiated a black bagging of protester in Portland using unmarked vans; all I saw from most conservatives was cheering. This would undoubtedly lead to a long term totalitarian structure that, once again, benefits the elites that inhabit every aspect of government including Trump’s White House.

In both cases, the power elites get what they want – a police state.

In terms of the pandemic response, a police state is already being established in many nations, and with most Western people’s predominantly disarmed there is little chance they will be able to resist the crackdown that will ensue as they try to protest the restrictions. But what about in America?

This is why it does not surprise me that the BLM riots are being encouraged so openly in the US. Look at it this way: If the elites cannot get us to go along with medical tyranny for fear of sparking an armed uprising from conservatives with actual training and ability, then they figure maybe they can trick us into supporting martial law in the name of defeating the political left.

The only solution is to refuse to support either option. We must repel the establishment of medical tyranny and stand against any overstep of state and federal governments against the constitution when it comes to protests. Riots and looting can be dealt with and dealt with within the confines of the Bill of Rights. Also, once again I would point out that in almost every place where armed citizens organize and take up security measures in their communities the protests remain peaceful, or they don’t happen at all.

There is no legitimate excuse for a police state. There is always another way. Anyone that tells you different has an agenda of their own.

authoritarians Business corporate Economic Pain elitists Emergency Preparedness experts Fascism Federal Reserve Forecasting Hoax illusion Intelwars lockdowns Manipulation Neel Kashkari Orwellian pandemic plans Ppp loans scamdemic stimulus system The Matrix too late TOTALITARIANISM wake up

The Economy Continues To Unravel Despite All Stimulus Measures

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

Since the pandemic lockdowns were first implemented in the US I have been more concerned with the government and central bank response than the virus itself. As I have noted in past articles, the pandemic restrictions and subsequent economic and social crisis events they help to create will cause far more deaths than Covid-19 ever will. Not only that, but the actions of the Federal Reserve continue to con the American public into believing that there is some kind of “plan” to stop the crash that THEY engineered.

The only agenda of the Fed is to increase the pain in the long term; they have no intention of actually preventing any disaster.

This is evidenced in comments by voting members of the Fed, including Neel Kashkari who recently argued for the enforcement of hard lockdowns for at least six weeks in the US, all because the US savings rate was going up. Meaning, because Americans are saving more in order to protect themselves from economic fallout, Kashkari thinks we should be punished with an economic shutdown that would force us to spend whatever we have been able to save.

Do you see how that works?

Fed members and government officials demand hard lockdowns, depleting public savings, and destroying small businesses. Then, the public has to beg the Fed and the government for more and more stimulus measures so that they can survive. The people and the system become dependent on a single point of support – fiat money creation and welfare. Yet, the evidence suggests that this strategy is failing to do much of anything except stall the inevitable for a very short time.

If the goal was really to reduce the pain of the pandemic as much as possible, then the strategy should be to keep the economy as open as possible and let the virus run its course.  By initiating lockdowns, all we are doing is extending the economic damage over the span of years instead of months.  We can deal with the comparatively minimal deaths associated with the virus; we cannot handle the disaster that is about to befall the financial system.

The small business sector appears to be the most fragile element of the economy right now. The PPP loans that were supposed to shore up small businesses failed miserably, with data showing only 13% to 19% of applicants getting a loan of any kind. Over 64% of small businesses that received a loan are also worried about being approved for loan forgiveness. In other words, of the few small business owners that got a PPP loan more than half do not have the ability to pay the loan back if they end up not qualifying for an exemption.

This problem does not seem to be affecting the corporate sector, however. International companies are enjoying incredible cash infusions from the Fed through overnight loans as well as Fed stimulus propping up stock markets (at least for now). Tech companies in particular are enjoying a rush of investment as the assumption in the day trading world is that the central bank will not allow these companies to fail.

Maybe they are right, but stock markets today DO NOT reflect the health of our system in any way. Stock tickers are a placebo, a Pavlovian trigger for the public, a tool to make people believe that the situation is improving merely because share values are going up. This is not the case.

Small businesses in the US account for around 50% of all employment and job creation. They are a vital part of the economy. Yet, government and central bank measures seem to have left them out in the cold to die.

To be sure, the $600 weekly unemployment enhancement created through the CARES Act passed in March did boost consumer spending, primarily on durable goods such as computers, TVs, cellphones, etc. Spending on services declined though, which is where the majority of small businesses make their money. And, considering the fact that most durable goods are manufactured overseas, this means that the majority of stimulus dollars that went to consumers did not go into the US economy, but foreign exporters like China.

Now, the unemployment enhancement has ended and its return is in question. It will be interesting to see if the boost to purchases of goods will continue without that extra $600 weekly stimulus. Consumer spending rose in July by 1.9%, but this was already a weak print compared to the increases during the previous two months.

Unemployment numbers have declined due to soft reopenings in numerous states, and at the very least some part-time jobs appear to be returning, but nowhere near the level needed to erase the millions of jobs lost since February after the initial lockdowns began. If you count U-6 measurements and unemployed people who have been removed from the rolls for being jobless for too long, the REAL unemployment rate is closer to 30% of working-age Americans. This is essentially Great Depression levels of joblessness.

US GDP has continued to decline by 32% according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (despite statistical rigging by the Fed and government agencies), and while it’s possible that stimulus slowed the effects of GDP loss, there is no indication what the trillions of dollars created by the Fed have actually bought other than a few months of time and a massive bubble in the stock market.

The economy cannot survive extreme lockdown conditions for any length of time, let alone almost two more months. And, if you want to know what it means when elites in government and central banking call for a “hard lockdowns”, just look at Level 4 restrictions in places like Australia and New Zealand, where only one person can leave home at any given time, can only travel 3 miles from home and only for food and supplies, and anyone caught not wearing a mask is subject to arrest or a $10,000 fine.

This mother in Melbourne, Australia was arrested because of a Facebook post calling for protests over the lockdown restrictions.  She later had to take the post down and offered an apology, saying she did not know it was illegal to post such statements on social media:

Yeah, this kind of Orwellian response will do wonders for any economic recovery, and this is what Kashkari is calling for in the US.  It’s almost as if the Fed and certain politicians WANT a financial collapse in America…

The REAL solution is to stop the lockdown restrictions altogether. If the goal is truly to protect as many American lives as possible for the “greater good”, then the pandemic response must stop. Luckily, it seems that more and more people are beginning to see through the facade and are rejecting the restrictions. Even in Europe and Australia, there have been some signs of protest and rebellion. The problem is that, at least in terms of the economy, it may be too late.

We have to consider the fact that once a large portion of the business sector (like small businesses) takes a massive hit like the one they have suffered over the past several months, many such businesses and jobs will simply not come back. There are many reasons for this, but primarily it’s a matter of debt. The average small business owner carries almost $200,000 in debt for 3-5 years before he reaches profitability or breaks even. This is assuming that there are no major economic catastrophes in that time.

With the pandemic, the riots, the restrictions, etc., businesses will have to take on much more debt with little guarantee of recovery in the next few years let alone the next few months.  Chapter 11 business bankruptcies in the US rose over 26% in the first half of 2020 alone.

Even if lockdown restrictions were completely eradicated tomorrow, a large number of businesses would go bankrupt anyway.  The “Retail Apocalypse” has been growing over the past decade, LONG before the coronavirus was on issue.  Thousands of businesses shut down last year and tens of thousands more are slated to close this year.   The virus and lockdowns simply accelerated the existing decline.

This is why large banks are cutting off loans to business owners and consumers right now; they know exactly where all this is headed.

Banks act as middlemen for the PPP loans financed by the Fed, yet those loans are not getting to most businesses. Banks have also cut credit card lending in the past few months, and general lending has crashed. All of this despite low interest rates for banks receiving stimulus injections from the Fed. Where is all of the money going? They are keeping it for themselves, buying up hard assets as well as propping up the stock market. As noted above, the elites have NO INTENTION of saving the economy, only themselves.

If the stimulus is not getting to the main-street economy then the only purpose it serves is to give the public a false sense of comfort.  The people who gain the most from the ongoing pandemic chaos are establishment elites that want severe restrictions on personal liberty.  Not to mention, the virus and lockdowns offer a convenient scapegoat for the financial crisis that was already brewing due to central bank mismanagement of stimulus, inflation, and interest rates. The bottom line is, the banks do not want the crisis to end.  Why would they?  The longer the panic continues, the more they benefit.

Robert Kiyosaki: American Is Headed For Totalitarianism

Author Robert Kiyosaki, who wrote the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad says the United States is headed for totalitarianism and that he wants to flee the country with his gold. American is already fascist, regardless of opinions on the matter.

Fascism is the merger of corporations and the government, while totalitarianism is a complete subservience to the state. We are the crossroads of both, to be honest. And the faithful sheep who serve the state and the banking cartel will dutifully go vote in November for a puppet who has already been chosen by the Federal Reserve to complete the enslavement of mankind.

In an interview with Kitco, Kiyosaki explains that Americans have almost lost every smidge of liberty that their ancestors had. “The freedom of speech is gone. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and also the freedom of religion,” he said.

Kiyosaki has prepared for a time when he would have to leave the U.S., he said, by holding safe-haven assets like gold and silver. “Way back when I started storing gold in Switzerland and in Singapore, so in case I had to run, plus I had different passports. Gold and silver are flight capital, and as you know, the only people making money today in America are moving vans,” he said.

Regardless of the price of gold, whether it’s $1000 or $15,000, Kiyosaki says he will continue to buy more because it’s one way to protect yourself from the central banks. Kiyosaki wants to remind people that he fought for capitalism, not socialism. But the U.S. is becoming Marxist quickly.

He added that bitcoin also qualifies as a safety asset because it’s “international currency; it operates outside the Fed and the Treasury. Kiyosaki says he holds gold because it’s “God’s money” and Bitcoin because its the “people’s money.”  He seems to be attempting to remove himself from the system of enslavement set up by the Federal Reserve.

Australian government Big Pharma centers for disease control and prevention Corporations Covid-19 vaccine elitists Emergency Preparedness Fascism Forecasting Headline News human beings Intelwars LIES mandatory vaccine Military money Operation warp speed Oxford University Pentagon public Scott morrison SLAVERY tax cattle traced tracked

Time is Running Out: Australia Secures a COVID Vaccine Deal With Big Pharma

The Australian government has secured a deal for a COVID-19 vaccine with big pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. Under the deal, the Australian government would manufacture the vaccine and offer free doses to all citizens.

Time is running out!  The vaccine is coming.

British-based AstraZeneca is developing the vaccine in partnership with Oxford University, with advanced trials now underway with thousands of volunteers across multiple countries. “The Oxford vaccine is one of the most advanced and promising in the world, and under this deal, we have secured early access for every Australian,” said Prime Minister Scott Morrison in a statement released late Tuesday local time. “If this vaccine proves successful we will manufacture and supply vaccines straight away under our own steam and make it free for 25 million Australians.”

The goal is to vaccinate every human being on earth with a coronavirus vaccine, and no one really knows all of what’s in these shots. Apparently, the deal is still in the early stages. Both parties have signed a Letter of Intent. A final formal agreement at a later stage will layout more concrete details like pricing and distribution. However, the Australian government has previously indicated that it will spend billions of dollars on its vaccine strategy.

Plans like these have more than likely been in the world for far longer than we are being led to believe.  The goal has always been to vaccinate, track, trace, and surveil the entire global population turning everyone into tax cattle for the sole purpose of serving the elitists.

Invisible Ink Tattoos Could Be Used By The Elites To Identify Unvaccinated Kids

Under the Trump administration, Operation Warp Speed is kicked into overdrive. The military will be used to vaccinate the public and the Pentagon has partnered with the CDC in order to make this a dystopian reality.

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

AstraZeneca released early results of its closely watched Phase 1/2 trial in late July, which suggested that its vaccine candidate was safe and induces an immune response.

The Phase 2/3 trials will now aim to prove whether the vaccine protects people against the novel coronavirus. Results are expected later this year, and will depend on the rate of infection within the trial communities, AstraZeneca said.

The company has already reached agreements with several governments and organizations to produce at least 3 billion doses of the vaccine, with the first deliveries starting as early as September, it said on its website. -CNN

While everyday human beings are impoverished by the edicts of governments, AstraZeneca is raking in billions from those same governments.

Time is running out.

banking cabal Central Banks Corporations corporatocracy Donald Trump Economy elections are selections Fascism Federal Reserve Games Greg Mannarino Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Masters Oval Office political puppets Politicians rigged system slaves triggering Truth united states government Wall Street Banks

Greg Mannarino: “It’s A Game. It’s A Charade. It’s Theater.”

Gregory Mannarino, a market analyst hasn’t been mincing words lately.  The political pandering for this year’s election is “a game. It’s a charade. It’s theater,” he says. But, it’s also imperative that we understand this.

The more you understand, the less likely it is that you’ll be duped, and since that’s all politics is, it’s critical to realize that it’s the Wall Street banks (central banks) that choose the president, not us. Once you realize that, everything begins to make sense. As Mannarino says, it’s past time to wake up and stop getting triggered when someone tells the truth about the puppets in the government and the Federal Reserve. It’s time to “understand why things are the way they are,” says Mannarino.

Mannarino predicts that unless Donald Trump throws the Federal Reserve/Wall Street Banks a bone, we’ll see Joe Biden become the president of the United States in November. The banks, who are trying to take over the world, will choose the political puppet who will do their bidding the best.

Greg Mannarino: It’s Critical To Understand That The Goal Is “Full Control By The Federal Reserve”

“It doesn’t matter who sits in the Oval Office, and I don’t give a damn who wins because it’s not the president that’s running the show, it’s the banks!

And the sooner your understand that, whichever aisle you’re in right now, the better off your whole life is going to be, because you have no voice here. Wall Street, the banks, they’re the real masters of the universe.” -Greg Mannarino

I can attest to that as well. Once you refuse to be dragged along by the system rigged against you, you make clear decisions with a free mind.  Knowing is the first part of the battle. Once you wake up to this, the war for your mind is over. Free people cannot be controlled or brainwashed into heading to the ballot box to vote for their new master. You have to take your power back and stop giving it away to politicians in the hopes that they will save you.

“Let me say this real quick again, and understand what I’m talking about here. I know people are gonna get triggered all over the place: I don’t care who wins. It doesn’t matter. It’s not the person who’s sitting in the oval office that dictates policy in any way shape or form. But UNLESS president Trump delivers something BIG to Wall Street, he cannot possibly win here.” -Greg Mannarino

Sadly, we lost this country a long time ago. The banks are running the show and have been for longer than most reading this have been alive. It’s all coming out now. The evidence is there. If you choose to not see it, then that’s on you. Being easily triggered by politics doesn’t change the fact that the central banks are in control. Wakin up to this reality is the only way to change it.

More Ugly Details Emerge in Federal Bribery Case with Ohio Utility, Legislators, Lobbyists, Donors, etc.

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

Activist Post has reported about recent legislator-utility bribery scandals in both Ohio and Illinois (see 123). Many don’t realize that similar bad behavior has also been pervasive for the last several years with the introduction, promotion, and installation of utility “Smart” Meters – electric, gas, and water.

Americans and people worldwide have been opposed to these 2-way wireless transmitting “Smart” Meters since they were first deployed. Their problems include fires, explosions, increased bills, and more (see 1234). They also DO NOT save meaningful amounts of energy – as originally promised. Unfortunately, this hasn’t stopped legislators, utility companies, and other ne’er-do-wells from continuing to promote and force their installation on homes and throughout communities.

Only time will tell if some of the same folks being investigated for what’s happening in Ohio used similar tactics for promoting and forcing the installation of First Energy “Smart” Meters in the state.

From the Columbus Dispatch:

Householder case: ‘Company C’ CEO Wayne Boich gave cash to HB 6 ‘dark money’ groups

The leader of a Columbus-based firm that made its family fortune in Ohio coal provided $25,000 of the money used to open bank accounts for the “dark-money” nonprofit at the center of the House Bill 6 scandal, The Dispatch has learned.

Wayne M. Boich, chairman and chief executive officer of Boich Companies, also later gave $100,000 to a for-profit company that spent nearly $1.5 million to support former House Speaker Larry Householder’s Republican candidates in the 2018 general election.

Boich is the CEO of “Company C,” listed in a federal court criminal complaint charging Householder and four others with racketeering, The Dispatch confirmed with a source close to the investigation of those involved with the campaign for HB 6.

Officials of the company have no comment, Boich spokesman Mike Dawson said Tuesday.

The House Bill 6 pay-to-play and bribery case, as described in a federal complaint, involves Akron-based FirstEnergy and affiliates routing nearly $61 million to Generation Now, a dark money nonprofit, to secure passage of the bill and defend it against a referendum repeal effort.

The secret money helped ensure a $1 billion-plus electricity ratepayer bailout of two nuclear power plants then owned by a FirstEnergy subsidiary and helped elect “Team Householder” House candidates to provide the votes needed to make him speaker, according to the charges.

Householder directs a dirty campaign to save bailout as millions flow:

Activist Post Editor’s Note: This is the final part of four in a series examining the FBI’s criminal complaint against former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder and four others described as the Householder Enterprise. All five men and the group Generation Now were indicted Thursday on federal racketeering charges. Facts in this series are based on public records, including the charging documents, and past and recent interviews with public officials and other sources.

Former Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges asked Tyler Fehrman to coffee in September 2019.

The two apparently had become friends when Fehrman worked to help elect a couple of legislative candidates backed by now-former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder.

But in late 2019, Fehrman was working for the other side: He was the regional manager for the referendum campaign to overturn House Bill 6, known as a bailout for two nuclear power plants owned by a FirstEnergy Corp. subsidiary.

And Borges hoped Fehrman would give him inside information to help the Householder “Enterprise” keep the referendum off the ballot, the FBI says in a criminal affidavit.

In exchange for the information, Borges offered to give Fehrman a substantial sum of money, the affidavit said.

The affidavit doesn’t identify Fehrman by name, but The Blade in Toledo revealed his identity and Fehrman later told The Plain Dealer of Cleveland what happened.

“Never did I ever think that Matt was going to put me in the position that he did,” Fehrman told The Plain Dealer. “One of the first things he told me was, ‘Dude, I don’t have a mortgage anymore. Like, I’m so taken care of. And we could do the same for you.’”

Since utility companies have installed tens of millions of “Smart” Meters – it’s likely that you have them installed on your home and throughout your community. Good luck with that.

banking terrorists Cabal cartel crash creature decimate the dollar dollar crash Economy Emergency Preparedness Fascism Federal Reserve Future global one world currency goal Greg Manarinno Headline News Intelwars live free lockdown again Masters Minneapolis New World Order no recovery no right to be a slave no right to rule One World Government slaves solutions traced tracked wake up Walmart world wide domination

Federal Reserve Banking Terrorist Says We Need Another Lockdown To “Save” The Economy

A member of the Federal Reserve’s rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee said on Sunday that the only way to secure a robust economic recovery is to lock down the country again.  These people will stop at nothing until we all end up their tagged and tracked slaves.

The International Banking Cartel, which is bringing in the New World Order quickly, must crash the economy and decimate the dollar in order to go to a digital one world currency where every transaction can be tracked and traced along with people. These “creatures” as they’ve been called by Greg Manarinno before, want total world domination and another lockdown would finish off what’s left of small businesses so they can implement their goals through the Walmarts across the globe. (Corporations merging with the government is fascism and this the goal on a worldwide scale.)

“If we were to lock down hard for a month or six weeks, we could get the case count down so that our testing and our contact tracing was actually enough to control it the way that it’s happening in the Northeast right now,” said  Neal Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, who appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation. “That’s the only way we’re really going to have a real robust economic recovery.”

Kashkari wants to shut down to do intensive testing, tracking, and tracing. It has nothing to do with the economy, other than the more money they create, the faster the dollar will implode.

Most Dangerous Superstition

The only way to have a recovery to remove the Federal Reserve and the government that has meddled in the lives of the many in order to control them. Prepare your mind first. All your preps are worthless if you cannot save your mind/spirit during this horrific spiritual war on all of us. 

Stop giving others power over you. In history, it has ALWAYS turned into rule over the many by the few. People say I offer no solutions. I do, but most don’t like them because it requires critical thinking and an exit from the left-right paradigm that’s been in control of your mind for your whole life. The easiest way to beat those who want your subjugation (banking cartel and government) is to just live. Voting doesn’t matter, the Fed chooses the president and most politicians all the way down except maybe the mayors of small insignificant towns.  Actually, in most of my articles towards the end, I offer a simple solution, and the only one that will actually work: stop believing ANYONE has power over you.  You were not born to be a slave and others were not born to be your master.

Stop living in fear, but be aware of what’s coming so you can prepare. Live your life freely the way the creator intended. If you need help understanding this situation and why you should never allow anyone to have power over you, steal from you, or control you, read Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition. This book is essential and something the powers that shouldn’t be don’t ever want you to figure out.  Reading this book removes all illusions, however, so if you like being coddled or lied to about the true nature of power, and giving your power to other people (be they politicians or bankers) you’ll have a hard time getting through this. If you do read this book, it’s life-changing, empowering, and eye-opening. You’ll undergo your own “apocalypse” or limiting of the veil.

The solution is simple: enough people need to wake up and realize NO ONE has the right tow own them or control them.

analyst Central Banks Corporations crash dog and pony show Donald Trump Economy election enslavement experts Fascism Federal Reserve Forecasting full control globalists agenda Government Greg Mannarino Headline News Illusion of Choice impoverish Intelwars killing middle class Middle Class New World Order owners Paradigm puppets selection slaves small businesses The Fed two tier society wake up

Greg Mannarino: The Fed Is “Trying To KILL What’s Left Of The Middle Class”

The Federal Reserve, with the help of their puppets in the government, is trying to kill what’s left of the middle class.  This should be obvious by now, and yet people are still walking around more afraid of a virus than opening their eyes to what’s happening.

Who would have thought a face mask over the mouth and nose would cause such epic blindness. Greg Mannarino has been pointing out the goals of the Federal Reserve for years now.  It’s all coming to fruition, and in order to own the world, they must eliminate the middle class.

They are going for small businesses and have 50% of those gone already. “Maybe they’re going for, I don’t know, 75, 100%, while coroporate American, right now is stronger than it’s ever been!” Wake up, people.  This is all by design. It’s a century-old plan to own and rule the entire world.

It’s in our face and it’s no shock, adds Mannarino of the corporations and government merging together via the Federal Reserve. They are no longer hiding the agenda. There will be no middle class in the New World Order. They need poverty-stricken slaves only, while they sit at the top and rule to the world.  It’s pretty sad that most people still haven’t figured it out yet and will go cast a ballot in November thinking the Federal Reserve hasn’t already selected the puppet they will use for the next four years.

The only reason there are two political parties is to give people the illusion of choice. This should go without saying, but so many are still stuck in a paradigm that will wholly enslave and impoverish them unless they wake up to it, and soon! It’s “critical” to use Mannarino’s word.

Basically, we don’t control the outcome of elections. The central banks do. If for one second, the Federal Reserve sees Biden as being more “on board” with their epic distribution of debt and credit, he WILL be the next president.  Trump could still  be reelected because he’s been incredibly effective at helping the central bank take over the planet. –SHTFPlan

Trump Is A Pied Piper For The New World Order Agenda

Pay attention to what’s happening. It’s all in front of our faces now.

This process of controlled demolition needs a considerable distraction so that the central banks and the globalists ultimately avoid blame for the painful consequences of the event. Enter Donald Trump and the false Trump vs. Globalist paradigm. As I mentioned last week, the Fed is only one side of the equation for the crash; Trump is the other side.

After two years of witnessing Trump in action, it is clear to me that he is an active participant in the new world order agenda, and not just an unwitting patsy for the economic crisis.-Brandon Smith

However this plays out, it was all set up this way. The set up has begun for a contested election and overwhelming societal dysfunction regardless of which puppet the Federal Reserveselects for the illusionary throne. Take off the left vs. right paradigm glasses that are being used to divide and distract and look around clearly while applying critical thinking.

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

MSM Frenzy: Trump Floats The Idea Of Delaying The Election

The election in November could be the start of massive uprisings, no matter which puppet the Federal Reserve has selected, and it’s set up that way already. The puppets are already beginning their dog and pony show and dancing for the public on command.

If you feel the desire to protect your wealth, you still can’t beat gold and silver. Other than that, have a lot of a third metal, lead, on hand.

Mask Propaganda Intensifies: It’s “NOT Your Right To NOT Wear A Mask”

This is nothing new, but for some strange reason, the political puppets need you all to wear a mask. Jim Murren, the head of Nevada’s coronavirus task force says it is “not your right to not wear a mask.”

This lacks logic on all fronts. It’s still difficult to figure out why they are so desperate to get as many people as possible in face masks unless this isn’t about logic at all, but control. Murren, who heads the Nevada COVID-19 Response, Relief, and Recovery Task Force, made the comments at the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance’s Las Vegas Perspective event on Tuesday.

It surprising that people aren’t just returning to their lives and ignoring these tyrants. Just how much enslavement will it take to get Americans to wake up? The masks are not for your good, and they never were. Just listen to Fauci say it:

Mask propaganda and the third wave are the newest brainwashing ideals being pushed by mainstream media. But what if it’s more sinister than we could imagine?

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

We should all be aware by now that this is a spiritual battle for your mind. Look around.  You’re surrounded by propaganda, and if you can’t remove your cognitive biases for just a moment to realize it, you are going to have a hard time in the upcoming months. Be aware, but prepare.

This is all by design, and once you realize the government is nothing more than theater to distract you from what the Federal Reserve is doing, you will be able to see how to prepare and be ready for what’s coming. Never succumb to fear,  but you need to know what’s happening.  You need to open your eyes ad be aware of the global take over so you can prepare to the best of your ability. These psychopaths feed on fear, so instead of being afraid, learn, grown, become self-reliant, and store food and water. 

Greg Mannarino: It’s Critical To Understand That The Goal Is “Full Control By The Federal Reserve”

It’s All Been Planned: Prepare For The Great Reset

None of this is ending anytime soon because there are not enough people who see the truth. Once people wake up to what’s happening, we can begin to work together to create a better world without this master-slave relationship we all have with the current ruling class puppets doing the bidding of the Federal Reserve.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

California Draconian Elon Musk enslavement Fascism freedom Headline News human beings Intelwars livin no more power panic Politicians power rights Shelter in place Tesla

Elon Musk: Politicians Who “Stole Our Liberty” Should Be “Tarred & Feathered”

Elon Musk, the infamous CEO of Tesla, has been finding himself on the side of liberty lately.  Musk, who is getting pushback now from politicians in California said that those in government who stole our liberty should be “tarred and feathered and thrown out of town!”

Lately, Musk has been a vocal skeptic of the response from state governments, including the rulers in California, where he has battled power-hungry state elitists to keep his Tesla manufacturing plant in Fremont open. Earlier this week, he said he was going to keep his factory open and dared law officials to arrest him, according to a report by The Washington ExaminerOn Wednesday, Musk said he was considering moving to Texas after Los Angeles County officials announced they would extend stay-at-home orders through the end of July.

“What The F**k”: In Expletive-Laced Rant, Elon Musk Blasts “Fascist, Undemocratic” Shelter-In-Place Orders

Musk even said that “politicians and unelected bureaucrats” who have abused their power during the coronavirus pandemic deserve to be punished for their decisions to shut down state economies across the country. “Well said!” Musk tweeted. “Please run for office. The politicians & unelected bureaucrats who stole our liberty should be tarred, feathered & thrown out of town!”

We all know by now that the elitists are struggling to hold onto their power over us, and it all ends when we say it does, and when we all decide to disobey their commands. Those “in power” will never give it up.  It’s on us to take it back.  If you act like you deserve to be commanded and enslaved, that’s what will happen to you.  It’s long past time to get off your knees and start acting like the free and sovereign being you were born as.

Elon Musk may be trying to come down on the right side of history, however, keep in mind, he’s said we need to merge our brains with artificial intelligence if we want humanity to continue.

Elon Musk Announcement: Let’s Merge Human Brains To “Achieve A Symbiosis With AI”

AI, so far, has been used for the brainwashing and enslavement of mankind with very little benefit to us as a species. Skepticism of merging our brains with AI is rightfully a big issue.

Joe Biden: Let’s Use The Coronavirus To “Fundamentally Transform America”

The politicians are telling you what they expect from you if you dare to pay attention and wake up. They have control over a lot of people, but what they desire is the ultimate enslavement of all of humanity.

It’s long past the time to wake up and stop living life afraid in the left/paradigm. It’s all about control no matter who is elected. The illusion of choice has changed nothing over the past century and it’s not going to in the future.

But Donald Trump, a guy “on the right” is doing just as much damage to liberty and freedom, especially because he’s got a base of people who will consent regardless of what he does. Biden’s no different.  Some will vote for him in November as the “lesser of two evils” (which is still evil, by the way) and Biden will remain as a part of the ruling class elites whether he’s elected or not. And so will Trump.

The goal is to change the U.S. into China so a New World Order and one-world government with top-down authoritarian controls to the point of slavery can be imposed on humanity by a tiny few elitists. We have reached the point where this is the goal, and the politicians are all in on it. Some are opening their eyes.

“And I truly think, if we do this right, we have an incredible opportunity to not just dig out of this crisis, but to fundamentally transform the country,” Biden told a group of Latino supporters during a live stream. In order to do that, they require only your enslavement and the enslavement of your children and grandchildren.

It’s not the first time Biden has talked about leveraging the crisis to advance progressive policies.

He said April 22nd:

I believe, because, sort of, the blinders have been taken off, because of this COVID crisis, I think people are realizing, “My Lord. Look at what is possible. Look at the institutional changes we can make – without us becoming a ‘socialist country,’ or any of that malarkey – that we can make to provide the opportunities to change the institutional drawbacks …” from education, all the way through to all the other things we talked about.

On April 17th, Biden said: “We have an opportunity now to take, in a recovery act, a real recovery. We can fundamentally change the science relating to global warming.”

And on April 16th, he said: I think we have an opportunity now to significantly change the mindset of the American people, things they weren’t ready to do, even two, three years ago,” all thanks to the fear they induced over the virus.

Remember, the virus didn’t lock people in their homes putting them on indefinite house arrest.  The virus didn’t command people to close their businesses and starve. The virus didn’t tell farmers to kill animals and no longer sell meat to the public.  That was politicians and their order following police that did that, and we all need to remember this. Obedience to tyranny caused this and the only way out is for cops to realize what they are forcing upon humanity.

Larken Rose’s Most Dangerous Superstition details how the belief in authority is the most damaging one that humanity has ever faced. The primary threat to freedom and justice is not greed, or hatred, or any of the other emotions or human flaws usually blamed for such things. Instead, it is one ubiquitous superstition that infects the minds of people of all races, religions and nationalities, which deceives decent, well-intentioned people into supporting and advocating violence and oppression. Even without making human beings one bit more wise or virtuous, removing that one superstition would remove the vast majority of injustice and suffering from the world.

The truth is that the government is lying about the real statistics and continuing to tell us that reopening the economy can’t happen right now. Well, it’s time we reopen it ourselves.  We’re Americans! Since when have we ever needed the government’s permission?

Fear and panic has gripped the public as the mainstream media did their job of providing the right kind of scary propaganda to the masses.  I walked on eggshells before Easter so we wouldn’t get shadowbanned more than we already are. But not anymore.  It’s time we, as a people, stand up to tyranny and tell the elitists they don’t control us!

ZeroHedge and others, such as us are targets of big tech for speaking truth to power! They don’t want people exposed to even differing opinions at this point, because the official narrative is all they want you focused on. If you are panicked and afraid and need them, you are easy to control and manipulate.

Not only has our favorite site for financial news (ZeroHedge) been banned from Twitter, but I recently noticed that when I went to click on its articles shared by others, I end up getting a special disclaimer that gives the vibe that it’s a virus site and is about to crash my computer!

We should have stood up years ago when they throttled our freedom in the aftermath of 9/11 to “keep us safe.” But with the coronavirus, I now see the mainstream press and its elitist master are going for the final death blow to our liberty – a decapitation strike that has been very successful so far while they keep pushing lies about the viruses severity to keep everyone in a deep state of fear.

They’ve managed to get Americans to stay home, even from church on Easter Sunday. I’m not religious at all, but I was depressed last Sunday when realizing that the government had an enormously successful lockdown of Americans and there wasn’t even a single protest I could find to cover.

Where is the tea party? The Occupy Wall Street crowd? Bernie and Trump supporters? Ron Paul people?

F*CK! And then I look in the mirror and realize I didn’t protest, either.

If that wasn’t enough, Google began to blacklist sites to destroy our search results and bury us!

NO MORE! ENOUGH!

If you’re interested in opening up your business, going for a walk on the beach, taking a hike, or visiting a park with your kids, print this out. It’s a permission slip that allows you to live your life and pursue your dreams.

Download it now and give it to any of these people who are following orders – let them be on the wrong side of history. Government has as much power as we allow it to have. Don’t let them rule you! Start acting like you own yourself and act like you deserve your God-given right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

Mac Slavo

P.S. The elitists are getting desperate.  They are desperately trying to scrub an interview David Icke did with London Real‘s Brian Rose.  Rose refuses to allow Icke to be silenced even as the elitists try to prevent the interview from getting out. You can watch the entire interview with Icke here. If the elitists are trying this hard to hide an interview, then it isn’t because it’s “fake” it’s because it exposes them for who and what they really are.

Rose, who was on the side of the lockdowns before beginning the interview with Icke can now see that there are people who want ultimate power and control. He’s been silenced for the crime of getting information out to the public that the elitists don’t want anyone to know. But he’s standing up.

And we should all be standing up to the draconian tyrannical orders of the government and the elitists who think they have the right to rule over everyone.

The things that are going to be blocked are not going to be fake storiesThe things that are going to be blocked and censored, the things they are going to keep from people is going to be stuff they just don’t want you to focus on or know about.” – Melissa Dykes

The Coronavirus, Fear, and Elitist Driven Market Insanity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

William J Murray is the president of Washington DC-based Religious Freedom Coalition and author of several books, his last, Utopian Road to Hell, details the historic pitfalls of collectivism.

children are suspects Civil Liberties cops in schools Emergency Preparedness experts Fascism fences government oppression guns Headline News human rights hurting students Intelwars mass surveillance police states prison complex schools are prisons totalitarian Trump administration zero tolerance

Compliance 101: Gun-Toting Cops Endanger Students and Turn the Schools into Prisons

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

“Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning.”—Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes

Just when you thought the government couldn’t get any more tone-deaf about civil liberties and the growing need to protect “we the people” against an overreaching, overbearing police state, the Trump administration ushers in even more strident zero-tolerance policies that treat children like suspects and criminals, greater numbers of school cops, and all the trappings of a prison complex (unsurmountable fences, entrapment areas, no windows or trees, etc.).

The fallout has been what you’d expect, with the nation’s young people treated like hardened criminals: handcuffed, arrested, tasered, tackled and taught the painful lesson that the Constitution (especially the Fourth Amendment) doesn’t mean much in the American police state.

For example, in Florida, a cop assigned to River Ridge High School as a school resource officer threatened to shoot a student attempting to leave school for a morning orthodontist appointment.

In Pennsylvania, school officials called in the cops after a 6-year-old with Down syndrome pointed a finger gun at her teacher.

In Kentucky, a school resource officer with the sheriff’s office handcuffed two elementary school children with disabilities, ages 8 and 9. A federal judge made the sheriff’s office pay more than $300,000 (of taxpayer money) to the families, ruling that the handcuffing of  the students “was an unconstitutional seizure and excessive force.”

Welcome to Compliance 101: the police state’s primer in how to churn out compliant citizens and transform the nation’s school’s into quasi-prisons through the use of surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero-tolerance policies, lockdowns, drug-sniffing dogs, strip searches and active shooter drills.

If you were wondering, these police state tactics have not made the schools any safer.

Rather, they’ve turned the schools into authoritarian microcosms of the police state, containing almost every aspect of the militarized, intolerant, senseless, over criminalized, legalistic, surveillance-riddled, totalitarian landscape that plagues those of us on the “outside.”

Two years after President Trump announced his intention to “harden” the schools, our nation’s children are reaping the ill effects of gun-toting, taser-wielding cops in government-run schools that bear an uncomfortable resemblance to prisons.

America’s schools are about as authoritarian as they come.

From the moment a child enters one of the nation’s 98,000 public schools to the moment he or she graduates, they will be exposed to a steady diet of:

  • draconian zero-tolerance policies that criminalize childish behavior,
  • overreaching anti-bullying statutes that criminalize speech,
  • school resource officers (police) tasked with disciplining and/or arresting so-called “disorderly” students,
  • standardized testing that emphasizes rote answers over critical thinking,
  • politically correct mindsets that teach young people to censor themselves and those around them,
  • and extensive biometric and surveillance systems that, coupled with the rest, acclimate young people to a world in which they have no freedom of thought, speech or movement.

Young people in America are now first in line to be searched, surveilled, spied on, threatened, tied up, locked down, treated like criminals for non-criminal behavior, tasered and in some cases shot.

In my day, if you talked back to a teacher, or played a prank on a classmate, or just failed to do your homework, you might find yourself in detention or doing an extra writing assignment after school.

That is no longer the case.

Nowadays, students are not only punished for minor transgressions such as playing cops and robbers on the playground, bringing LEGOs to school, or having a food fight, but the punishments have become far more severe, shifting from detention and visits to the principal’s office into misdemeanor tickets, juvenile court, handcuffs, tasers, and even prison terms.

Students have been suspended under school zero-tolerance policies for bringing to school “look-alike substances” such as oreganobreath mints, birth control pills, and powdered sugar.

Look-alike weapons (toy guns—even Lego-sized ones, hand-drawn pictures of guns, pencils twirled in a “threatening” manner, imaginary bows and arrows, even fingers positioned like guns) can also land a student in hot water.

Even good deeds do not go unpunished.

One 13-year-old was given detention for exposing the school to “liability” by sharing his lunch with a hungry friend. A third-grader was suspended for shaving her head in sympathy for a friend who had lost her hair to chemotherapy. And then there was the high school senior who was suspended for saying “bless you” after a fellow classmate sneezed.

In South Carolina, where it’s against the law to disturb a school, more than a thousand students a year—some as young as 7 years old—“face criminal charges for not following directions, loitering, cursing, or the vague allegation of acting ‘obnoxiously.’ If charged as adults, they can be held in jail for up to 90 days.”

These outrageous incidents are exactly what you’ll see more of if the Trump Administration gets its way.

Increasing the number of cops in the schools only adds to the problem.

Thanks to a combination of media hype, political pandering, and financial incentives, the use of armed police officers (a.k.a. school resource officers) to patrol school hallways has risen dramatically in the years since the Columbine school shooting.

Indeed, the growing presence of police in the nation’s schools is resulting in greater police “involvement in routine discipline matters that principals and parents used to address without involvement from law enforcement officers.”

Funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, these school resource officers (SRO) have become de facto wardens in elementary, middle and high schools, doling out their own brand of justice to the so-called “criminals” in their midst with the help of tasers, pepper spray, batons, and brute force.

In the absence of school-appropriate guidelines, police are more and more “stepping in to deal with minor rulebreaking: sagging pants, disrespectful comments, brief physical skirmishes. What previously might have resulted in a detention or a visit to the principal’s office was replaced with excruciating pain and temporary blindness, often followed by a trip to the courthouse.”

The horror stories are legion.

One SRO was accused of punching a 13-year-old student in the face for cutting the cafeteria line.

That same cop put another student in a chokehold a week later, allegedly knocking the student unconscious and causing a brain injury.

In Pennsylvania, a student was tasered after ignoring an order to put his cell phone away.

When 13-year-old Kevens Jean Baptiste failed to follow a school bus driver’s direction to keep the bus windows closed (Kevens, who suffers from asthma, opened the window after a fellow student sprayed perfume, causing him to cough and wheeze), he was handcuffed by police, removed from the bus, and while still handcuffed, had his legs swept out from under him by an officer, causing him to crash to the ground.

Young Alex Stone didn’t even make it past the first week of school before he became a victim of the police state. Directed by his teacher to do a creative writing assignment involving a series of fictional Facebook statuses, Stone wrote, “I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur. I bought the gun to take care of the business.” Despite the fact that dinosaurs are extinct, the status fabricated, and the South Carolina student was merely following orders, his teacher reported him to school administrators, who in turn called the police.

What followed is par for the course in schools today: students were locked down in their classrooms while armed police searched the 16-year-old’s locker and bookbag, handcuffed him, charged him with disorderly conduct disturbing the school, arrested him, detained him, and then he was suspended from school.

Not even the younger, elementary school-aged kids are being spared these “hardening” tactics.

On any given day when school is in session, kids who “act up” in class are pinned facedown on the floor, locked in dark closets, tied up with straps, bungee cords and duct tape, handcuffed, leg shackled, tasered or otherwise restrained, immobilized or placed in solitary confinement in order to bring them under “control.”

In almost every case, these undeniably harsh methods are used to punish kids—some as young as 4 and 5 years old—for simply failing to follow directions or throwing tantrums.

Very rarely do the kids pose any credible danger to themselves or others.

Unbelievably, these tactics are all legal, at least when employed by school officials or school resource officers in the nation’s public schools.

This is what happens when you introduce police and police tactics into the schools.

Paradoxically, by the time you add in the lockdowns and active shooter drills, instead of making the schools safer, school officials have succeeded in creating an environment in which children are so traumatized that they suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, nightmares, anxiety, mistrust of adults in authority, as well as feelings of anger, depression, humiliation, despair, and delusion.

For example, a middle school in Washington State went on lockdown after a student brought a toy gun to class. A Boston high school went into lockdown for four hours after a bullet was discovered in a classroom. A North Carolina elementary school locked down and called in police after a fifth grader reported seeing an unfamiliar man in the school (it turned out to be a parent).

Police officers at a Florida middle school carried out an active shooter drill in an effort to educate students about how to respond in the event of an actual shooting crisis. Two armed officers, guns loaded and drawn, burst into classrooms, terrorizing the students and placing the school into lockdown mode.

If these exercises are intended to instill fear and compliance into young people, they’re working.

As journalist Dahlia Lithwick points out: “I don’t recall any serious national public dialogue about lockdown protocols or how they became the norm. It seems simply to have begun, modeling itself on the lockdowns that occur during prison riots, and then spread until school lockdowns and lockdown drills are as common for our children as fire drills, and as routine as duck-and-cover drills were in the 1950s.”

The toll such incidents take on adults can be life-altering, but when such police brutality is perpetrated on young people, the end result is nothing less than complete indoctrination into becoming compliant citizens of a totalitarian state.

Schools acting like prisons.

School officials acting like wardens.

Students treated like inmates and punished like hardened criminals.

This is the end product of all those so-called school “safety” policies, which run the gamut from zero-tolerance policies that punish all infractions harshly to surveillance cameras, metal detectors, random searches, drug-sniffing dogs, school-wide lockdowns, active-shooter drills, and militarized police officers.

Unfortunately, advocates for such harsh police tactics and weaponry like to trot out the line that school safety should be our first priority lest we find ourselves with another Sandy Hook.

What they will not tell you is that such shootings are rare.

As one congressional report found, the schools are, generally speaking, safe places for children.

In their zeal to crack down on guns and lock down the schools, these cheerleaders for police state tactics in the schools might also fail to mention the lucrative, multi-million dollar deals being cut with military contractors such as Taser International to equip these school cops with tasers, tanks, rifles, and $100,000 shooting detection systems.

Indeed, the transformation of hometown police departments into extensions of the military has been mirrored in the public schools, where school police have been gifted with high-powered M16 rifles, MRAP armored vehicles, grenade launchers, and other military gear. One Texas school district even boasts its own 12-member SWAT team.

According to one law review article on the school-to-prison pipeline, “Many school districts have formed their own police departments, some so large they rival the forces of major United States cities in size. For example, the safety division in New York City’s public schools is so large that if it were a local police department, it would be the fifth-largest police force in the country.”

The ramifications are far-reaching.

There can be no avoiding the hands-on lessons being taught in the schools about the role of police in our lives, ranging from active shooter drills and school-wide lockdowns to incidents in which children engaging in typically childlike behavior are suspended (for shooting an imaginary “arrow” at a fellow classmate), handcuffed (for being disruptive at school), arrested (for throwing water balloons as part of a school prank), and even tasered (for not obeying instructions).

Instead of raising up a generation of freedom fighters—which one would hope would be the objective of the schools—government officials seem determined to churn out newly minted citizens of the American police state who are being taught the hard way what it means to comply, fear and march in lockstep with the government’s dictates.

So what’s the answer, not only for the here-and-now—the children growing up in these quasi-prisons—but for the future of this country?

How do you convince a child who has been routinely handcuffed, shackled, tied down, locked up, and immobilized by government officials—all before he reaches the age of adulthood—that he has any rights at all, let alone the right to challenge wrongdoing, resist oppression and defend himself against injustice?

Most of all, how do you persuade a fellow American that the government works for him when, for most of his young life, he has been incarcerated in an institution that teaches young people to be obedient and compliant citizens who don’t talk back, don’t question and don’t challenge authority?

Peter Gray, a professor of psychology at Boston College, believes that school is a prison that is damaging our kids, and it’s hard to disagree, especially with the numbers of police officers being assigned to schools on the rise.

Students, in turn, are not only finding themselves subjected to police tactics such as handcuffs, leg shackles, tasers and excessive force for “acting up” but are also being ticketed, fined and sent to court for behavior perceived as defiant, disruptive or disorderly such as spraying perfume and writing on a desk.

Clearly, the pathology that characterizes the American police state has passed down to the schools.

Now in addition to the government and its agents viewing the citizenry as suspects to be probed, poked, pinched, tasered, searched, seized, stripped and generally manhandled, all with the general blessing of the courts, our children in the public schools are also fair game for school resource officers who taser teenagers and handcuff kindergartners, school officials who have criminalized childhood behavior, school lockdowns and terror drills that teach your children to fear and comply, and a police state mindset that has transformed the schools into quasi-prisons.

Don’t even get me started on the “school-to-prison pipeline,” the phenomenon in which children who are suspended or expelled from school have a greater likelihood of ending up in jail. One study found that “being suspended or expelled made a student nearly three times more likely to come into contact with the juvenile justice system within the next year.”

By the time the average young person in America finishes their public school education, nearly one out of every three of them will have been arrested. Nearly 40 percent of those young people who are arrested will serve time in a private prison, where the emphasis is on making profits for large megacorporations above all else.

Indeed, this profit-driven system of incarceration has also given rise to a growth in juvenile prisons and financial incentives for jailing young people. In this way, young people have become easy targets for the private prison industry, which profits from criminalizing childish behavior and jailing young people.

None of these tactics are making our communities or schools any safer, and they’re certainly not contributing to environments in which learning flourishes. Incredibly, despite the fact that the U.S. invests more money in public education (roughly $13,000 per child per year) than many other developed countries, we rank around the middle of the pack in science, math and reading, and behind many other advanced industrial nations.

Without a doubt, change is needed, but that will mean taking on the teachers’ unions, the school unions, the educators’ associations, and the police unions, not to mention the politicians dependent on their votes and all of the corporations that profit mightily from an industrial school complex.

As we’ve seen with other issues, any significant reforms will have to start locally and trickle upwards.

For starters, parents need to be vocal, visible and organized and demand that school officials 1) adopt a policy of positive reinforcement in dealing with behavior issues; 2) minimize the presence in the schools of police officers and cease involving them in student discipline; and 3) insist that all behavioral issues be addressed first and foremost with a child’s parents before any other disciplinary tactics are attempted.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, if you want a nation of criminals, treat the citizenry like criminals.

If you want young people who grow up seeing themselves as prisoners, run schools like prisons.

If, on the other hand, you want to raise up a generation of freedom fighters, who will actually operate with justice, fairness, accountability and equality towards each other and their government, then run the schools like freedom forums.

Remove the metal detectors and surveillance cameras, re-assign the cops elsewhere, and start treating our nation’s young people like citizens of a republic and not inmates in a police state penitentiary.

The U.S. Economy IS RIGGED, & It Isn’t To Favor You

Most Americans correctly believe that the United States economy is rigged and manipulated.  While most don’t understand how (The Federal Reserve, lobbying, and taxation) it’s done, businesses and government regularly collude to create an economy most favorable to their own wealth and power goals.

Establishment elitists in both business and government collude regularly to run the American economy to their own advantages and have increasingly done so for decades.  It isn’t really a secret. Although while some media sites claim Americans have rebelled, that number is few.  Most are more than content to be used as tax cattle and cannot be bothered to put down their phone long enough to realize it.

The Political Parties Are An Illusion Designed To “Relegate The Governed To A Position Barely Above That Of Cattle”

The solution to this problem cannot be found then, in more government since they are the ones colluding to rig the economy in their favor. Laws are not written to control the elites, the elites write them to control everyone else.  When politicians, corporate executives, pundits, journalists, academics, and activists alike propose ways to make society more just or efficient or globally competitive, they invariably call for some kind of government-corporate cooperation, as written by National Interest. But the cooperation, once initiated, seems always to lead to collusion and an economy that will benefit those already at the top at the expense of those who are not.

Ron Paul: ‘When Our Financial System Crashes…The Elites…Will Suffer The Least’

This isn’t new.  But it is finally becoming common knowledge. Will humanity wake up to the disaster that government (yes, even democracy) has done to everyone?

HOWEVER INNOCENTLY and naturally these collusive, corporatist arrangements have developed in the United States, there can be no mistake about their origins. The approach was pioneered in the 1920s and 1930s, first under Benito Mussolini in Italy and later in Germany under Adolf Hitler. Popular imagination immediately and understandably links fascism to government-sponsored violence and worse. America is free from such horrors, but the economic impulse nonetheless looks remarkably similar.

The fascists wanted control of their economies. Having rejected government ownership of industry—the means by which the communists and socialists achieved centralized control—Mussolini, and after him, Hitler settled on something subtler. They allowed private ownership and acquired control by offering huge benefits to firms that cooperated with their agenda—government contracts, protections from foreign and domestic competition, freedom from certain regulations (even from the law), and help in calming labor disputes—effectively all the advantages of monopolies. It was a prize hard for managers and stockholders to resist. Fascist agendas were, of course, very different and far uglier from those of the United States, but that is a different matter from the means used to serve them. –National Interest

Americans are free from the abundance of violence seen in most fascist states, however, that won’t last. If they do ever figure out that they are nothing more than slaves to be abused and stolen from as the government sees fit, a real rebellion could occur.  And if history has taught us anything, they won’t give up power willingly.

“Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” It may be just this association that prompted President Dwight Eisenhower to warn publicly on January 17, 1961, of what he called a “military-industrial complex.”

On top of all of that, we have a police state that is all too happy to get paid with stolen money to make sure the elites stay firmly in power: whether corporate or government.

One of the best and most comprehensive books on the advancement of the police state was written by constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead. Battlefield America: The War On The American People is the harrowing tale of how we have gotten to a place of totalitarian control without most even realizing it. It has been done to ensure those in power remain in power and the rest of us serve them as they see fit.

Police forces across the United States have been transformed into extensions of the military. Our towns and cities have become battlefields, and we the American people are now the enemy combatants to be spied on tracked, frisked, and searched. For those who resist, the consequences can be a one-way trip to jail or even death. Battlefield America: The War on the American People is constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead’s terrifying portrait of a nation at war with itself. In exchange for safe schools and lower crime rates, we have opened the doors to militarized police, zero-tolerance policies in schools, and SWAT team raids. The insidious shift was so subtle that most of us had no idea it was happening. This follow-up to Whitehead’s award-winning A Government of Wolves is a brutal critique of an America on the verge of destroying the very freedoms that define it. Hands up!?the police state has arrived.
