2020 cast vote chaos chaotic Conspiracy Fact and Theory counting division Donald Trump. presidential election election Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Mail-in ballots social unrest States Trump supporters democrats Violence Voting voting is a scam Winner

The Stage Has Been Set For The Most Chaotic Election In U.S. History

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

If you are deeply concerned about what is going to happen in November, you are definitely not alone.  Experts on both sides of the political spectrum have been warning that it is very likely that we will not know the winner of the presidential election until well after November 3rd, and everyone pretty much agrees that the period of uncertainly that we will be forced to endure will not be good for our nation.

Those of us that are old enough clearly remember the pain that the election of 2000 caused.  The outcome hinged on the results from the state of Florida, and the endless recounts were finally brought to a conclusion after 36 very stressful days with George W. Bush up by just 537 votes.  Unfortunately, some are saying that we are potentially facing “the 2000 election on steroids” because vote counting will be going on in multiple swing states long after election night is over.

The big reason why this election is going to be so different from previous elections is because so many Americans are going to be voting by mail.  According to one recent survey, a whopping 37 percent of all voters plan to cast their votes by mail this time around…

Thirty-seven percent of registered voters said they are likely to vote by mail in the November election, by receiving a mailed ballot and either mailing it back or returning it in person, according to a new survey released Tuesday by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project.

Other estimates put the number as high as 40 percent, and it could go even higher than that because some states are promoting mail-in voting extremely aggressively.

In fact, as I detailed yesterday, one of my readers told me that he and his wife “have received three requests each for mail-in ballots” over the past five weeks.

We are also being told that Democrats are far more likely to vote by mail than Republicans are.  According to the same survey that I quoted above, supporters of Biden are more than twice as likely to vote by mail than Trump supporters are…

Among them, 48% of voters who plan to vote for Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden said they are likely to vote by mail, according to the survey. That’s more than twice the 23% of voters backing President Donald Trump who said they are likely to vote by mail.

It takes a lot of time to open and count ballots that have been mailed in.  If that work could be done in advance, that wouldn’t be that much of a problem.

Unfortunately, there are 14 states where it is prohibited by law to count mail-in ballots before Election Day, and that includes some of our most important swing states

Tens of millions of Americans will try to vote by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But officials in 14 states are prohibited from processing mail-in ballots until Election Day; counting them could take days or weeks.

Those states include Pennsylvania and Michigan, battlegrounds that could decide the election.

It should deeply alarm all of us to hear that it “could take days or weeks” for some of these states to finally count every single ballot.

And that is just the first count.  I am not even talking about any potential recounts.

At this point, many Democrats are warning of a possible “red mirage” on the night of the election.  Many of them believe that it will look like President Trump is winning on election night, but that Joe Biden will ultimately win once all of the mail-in votes are finally counted.

As evidence, they point to the fact that there has been a “blue shift” in all national elections going back to 2004

Since 2004, mail-in ballots have been disproportionately Democratic, a phenomenon known as the “blue shift.”

So, barring a landslide, we could see a “red mirage” on Nov. 3, an election-night count of in-person votes that suggests that Trump has won — even though millions of votes for Biden are waiting to be tabulated.

Personally, I do believe that it is very likely that President Trump will be leading on the night of the election, but what is really going to matter is what happens during the days that follow.

If a Trump lead evaporates and Biden is eventually declared the winner, there will be widespread allegations that the election was stolen, and that could cause tremendous explosions of anger.

And the big tech companies are already preparing for post-election chaos.  In fact, Facebook has openly announced that they will purposely “restrict the circulation of content” in order to try to control civil unrest…

Facebook announced this week that it may restrict certain aspects of its platform following November’s general election as part of a larger effort to limit social unrest. A spokesperson for Facebook suggested that executives including Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg may censor specific information if they believe it is likely to heighten political tensions following the election.

According to a report by the Financial Times, Facebook announced this week that it will “restrict the circulation of content” following November’s election to curb violence and social unrest. The announcement follows efforts by Facebook to address concerns from those who have alleged that the platform aids in voter suppression and promotes election-misinformation.

What is this country going to look like if it takes weeks or even months to officially declare a winner?

No matter who ends up winning, I believe that the process is so flawed that it is going to tear the country apart.

And no matter what the final result is, a large percentage of the population will never accept the outcome as being legitimate.

This is already one of the most difficult chapters in U.S. history, and a bitterly contested election result will only make things even worse.

At this point, even the mainstream media is admitting that we are heading into “wild” times.  The following comes from CNN

Ask anyone about the next six weeks and they will likely give you some version of this as a response: Whoa boy. It is going to be wild.

Which it is! The last 42 days of a presidential election are always filled with unpredictable storylines, big moments and, more than anything, uncertainty.

Just about the only way that we can avoid the type of scenario that I have described is if there is an overwhelming landslide on election night.

Wouldn’t that be nice if that actually happened?

It would be wonderful if one of the candidates conceded on November 3rd or November 4th and we could avoid weeks or even months of endless national strife, but I don’t think that is going to happen.

Instead, I believe that both sides are going to fight to the bitter end, and the end will definitely be very bitter indeed.

August average voter Corporations crash Debates division Donald Trump election Emergency Preparedness experts exploded finances Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden personal finances police brutality Presidential Run quarantine period rapidly approaching social unrest Stock Market TAXES Theft United States Unknown Vaccine valuations Winner worst month

NASDAQ NOSEDIVES: Can You Handle THE HEAT?

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

We warned all throughout the MONTH of AUGUST that markets just don’t accept the REALITY of VALUATIONS anymore and one week afterward, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ peaked and have since entered a correction (NASDAQ for now).

Historically, as we explained, September is the market’s WORST MONTH, but this is getting even more SCREWED UP since Europe is considering a second quarantine period while elections in the U.S., which are the BIGGEST UNKNOWN, are rapidly approaching.

Listen closely: Americans are so programmed by propaganda ON BOTH ENDS of the spectrum that the questions asked to everyday citizens reflect the SERIOUS NUMBNESS of the average voter:

As you can see, the RACE IS TIGHT and the stakes are high!

Yesterday, I watched the amazing documentary “The Social Dilemma,” which proves beyond any shadow of a doubt what the business model incentives of social media giants are, and it will be them that DECIDE THE OUTCOME of this presidential run come November.

Between now and then, here’s what could HELP TRUMP, and below that is what could help BIDEN:

  1. Vaccine news – the cure will obviously be positive for Donald Trump, who will RIDE THE COATTAILS, taking credit for the record-fast approval process.
  2. Quarantines and school closures – I have no doubt that Democratic states are going to MAKE LIFE a living hell for residents because they must show Trump’s inadequacy with containing the pandemic.
  3. Debates – obviously, the more we allow these two TO CONFRONT each other, the more Trump has a chance to shine.
  4. Social unrest – if chaos returns, police defunding claims will bring voters to Trump, who is against it. Police brutality, on the other hand, indirectly helps Biden.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

For now, markets are still IN SHOCK that Trump’s approval ratings aren’t what they were pre-COVID-19. In January, no one predicted a close race, so I believe that if Biden’s chances are real, it could be AN INITIAL re-rating of equities downwards due to the high probability of higher corporate taxes.

So, when looking at this -12% correction in the NASDAQ, don’t assume it has anything to do with the presidency because it doesn’t.

Prices of equities are TOO HIGH and it’s dawning on institutional investors that they can invest in the recovery by going LONG the beaten-down industries, thus leaving the “bubble territory” to the retail public to MESS WITH.

Now, after the dynamite has exploded, we believe institutions will use stink bids and get back into tech.

We sure are exploring the matter using THIS new watch list.

After already being out of the woods, the SECOND-WAVE mentality that is taking over is depressing and I expect many controversies in the COMING MONTHS.

Lastly, we’re working on a BIG ALERT that you don’t want to miss, so stay focused on what’s coming.

accept martial law brainwashed brutality Cognitive Dissonance Compliance divide and conquer division elites Emergency Preparedness enslavement Headline News Humanity illusion of politics Intelwars Jacob blake killing law and order is communism left-right paradigm looting martial law increasing Morality National Guard New World Order no freedom not free pawns to the elites Police State police violence psychological operations rigged system Rioting social unrest tyranny United States Violence

Martial Law Becoming Increasingly Acceptable As Cities Fall Under Social Unrest

Martial law is becoming a reality for many Americans. As we continue to be bombarded by psychological operations and inorganic scenarios designed to divide us further, people are playing into the hands of the elites and increasingly accepting martial law.

This is not a good sign for the United States going forward.  The Minnesota governor has called in the National Guard now, as looters and rioters continue to destroy Minneapolis in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  Now, before everyone gets triggered, as they always do and put themselves on one side or the other completing the division necessary by the elites to divide and conquer us, just remember:

You Can Be Against Police Brutality & Looting and Rioting At The Same Time

Police violence against innocents is wrong. Looting and rioting are wrong. If we ever hope to get our freedom back and have a life that’s not lived in a mental prison, we need to wake up and stop taking sides when both are wrong.  Most people are unable to look beyond their own indoctrination into the left/right paradigm illusion to wake up and realize violence against other humans is wrong no matter who does it. This entire psychological operation is designed to get people to only accept martial law but demand it.

Martial law is not a solution unless you advocate slavery. The looting and rioting are absolutely absurd and should not be tolerated, nor should police shootings.  Living under a police state is not living freely, and that’s not an opinion. We have got to stop acting on violence and destruction and start living peacefully in unity.  The elites absolutely love police brutality and riots because they can swoop in and make more heavy-handed tyrannical changes that will be permanent chains around our necks.

Police State, The MSM, & Race Baiting: Why We Should Unite Agaisnt ALL Tyranny

This is NOT to say that looting and rioting are acceptable, and although I’ve said that before, people are going to accuse me of taking the side against them when I have no side other than humanity’s. Looting and rioting most absolutely are NOT acceptable. All violations of another human beings’ fundamental human rights given by the creator are unacceptable.  That includes the execution of other people, even if the killer is wearing a badge. The end result is the same. A fellow human being was killed.

Wake up. This division is exactly what the ruling class and elites want in order to shove the New World Order down our throats and most Americans are playing their roles as pawns in the game epically well. I already know this will ignite cognitive dissonance in the comments with people making assumptions about which side I am promoting; which is no side because neither is moral.

We cannot drive out the evil of the New World Order while playing its game. Choose to not play the game already rigged against you. This is a war for your mind, a spiritual war if you will. If you’ve chosen either side of the left/right paradigm, you’ve already lost to the divide and conquer tactics.

2020 Americans ammunition civil unrest Data firearm retailers foundation gun ownership gun rights gun sales rise Headline News Intelwars Lawrence G. Keane lead live free People personal responsibility Preparedness rigged system Self-Defense social unrest societal upheaval Statistics survey

Americans Sense Something Is Wrong: Gun Sales Up 72%

Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase.  Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020. “This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community,” said Lawrence G. Keane, a senior vice president at the foundation. “These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership. That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Mr. Keane said.

With social upheaval, political overreach and power grabs, and any number of other issues 2020 has thrown at the public, Americans appear to at least somewhat be willing to fight for their right to live freely.

The foundation’s current surveys revealed that 58% of all firearm purchases were among Black men and women, the largest increase of any demographic group. Women comprised 40% of first-time gun purchasers. Retailers also noted that they are seeing a 95% increase in firearm sales and a 139% increase in ammunition sales over the same period in 2019. –the The Washington Post

The general consensus seems to be that with four months left in 2020, we have yet to see the true scope and depravity of the elites who claim to own everyone and everything. But, lead is one of my personal favorites when it comes to storing metals.

Virus Unrest Turns Violent As Serbs Protest Being “Lied To For Political Ends”

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.

Social unrest has rocked Belgrade and other cities in Serbia this week in response to President Aleksandar Vucic’s reintroduction of government-curfews over surging coronavirus cases.

Serbian police fired tear gas and were dressed head to toe in riot gear, as demonstrators, mostly young people, assaulted police on Tuesday and Wednesday. The New York Times said the unrest was some of the first in Europe since the pandemic began – also indicating the severity of the unrest was worst since the rule of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s.

Young Serbs quickly took the streets on Tuesday after Vucic announced Belgrade would be placed under a new order restricting movement in the region for three days to mitigate the spread of the second coronavirus wave. Many were infuriated by the re-implementation of the lockdown after coming out of some of the strictest ones in Europe to allow the general election last week.
“Serbia protests over coronavirus pandemic management turn violent.” Serbia protests over coronavirus pandemic management turn violent.

“We don’t mind staying home for another three days — that wasn’t the problem,” said Dragana Grncarski, 45, who has been protesting this week.

“However, they’re playing with our minds and with the truth,” Grncarski added. “When it suits them to do elections, there is no corona. They organized football matches and tennis matches, and because of that we have a situation where the hospitals are full.”

“Citizens have been constantly deceived and lied to for political ends,” said Tena Prelec, a political expert on Southeast Europe at the University of Oxford.

Jelena Vasiljevic, an expert on Balkan unrest at the University of Belgrade, said the expiration of the lockdowns for election purposes – then re-implementation of the lockdowns took the population “from one extreme to another.” 

Vasiljevic said the “excessive use of force” by the government to combat rioters hasn’t been seen since the days of “Milosevic in 1996 or 1997.” Milosevic led Serbia through the Balkan Wars and was later charged for war crimes.

Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin was convinced the demonstration against the re-implementation of the lockdowns in Belgrade and other cities were “carefully planned” – and aimed at igniting a civil war. 

“We have terrible violence on the streets, we have an attempt at a coup, we have an attempt to seize power by force and an attempt to provoke a civil war in Serbia. It cannot be described and explained differently. There is no reason, there is no reason to set fire to the Assembly, to set fire to the City Hall in Novi Sad, to attack the police, to beat people on the streets, to endanger life and to endanger the property of Serbian citizens ,” said Vulin, a guest on the show Novo jutro on TV Pink, was asked to comment on the events in the previous two evenings.

Russian Times caught some of the unrest on video earlier this week. Young Serbs can be seen clashing with riot police in front of government buildings.

“There were indications of foreign involvement, and some criminal faces were there, too,” Vucic said on Wednesday afternoon. He added that virus cases will likely flare-up because of the mass unrest.

“I wonder who will be responsible for the fact that hundreds and thousands of people became infected yesterday and the day before yesterday,” he said

Vucic has also backtracked on the curfew after several days of unrest –  instead, the government is expected to impose restrictions on public spaces and possibly limit business hours. There’s also talk of fining people for not wearing masks.

When it comes to outside forces meddling in Serb domestic affairs, Russia came out on Thursday, denying it had any involvement.

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

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

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

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

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

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

COVID-19: The Biggest Psyop In Human History

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Collapse Of The United States Is Going To Be Messy

The United States, and several other countries, are on the verge of an epic collapse.  Not just a collapse of the central banking system, but the control system that’s been in place for over a century.  Most people on this planet don’t even realize what true freedom is thanks to the indoctrination and mental prison they’ve been put in.

If you haven’t noticed, the cities of the U.S. are burning and people are angry. Many are finally realizing the prison they’ve been put in their entire lives has all been fabricated by the handful of “elitists” and those in the ruling class, so they can be used as tax cattle and fodder in the bloody wars concocted by the .01%.  It sure looks like people get upset when they realize they have been lied to for their entire lives.

ROBERT KIYOSAKI: “It’s Not A Free Country Anymore! Pray For The Best-Prepare For The Worst”

The collapse is coming, and it’s going to get worse. Those in power will not loosen their grip willingly. In fact, they are doubling down in an effort to control us all.  Human beings were actually fired upon by their own government in the U.S.S.A. after agents of the state said:”light ’em up!”  These people were committing the crime of being on their own porch.

Instead of quitting, and taking off their uniforms, cops and the military are becoming increasingly violent against their fellow Americans on American soil.  Maybe all that war in foreign countries was practice so they could cram the globalists’ agenda down our throats.

Military and law enforcement are following the orders of the ruling class to destroy your freedom. The real question is, when is it enough? It appears that that time has finally come. People all over are realizing they don’t have to live their lives enslaved to anyone. “The system is in collapse. Your own government is going to be your biggest enemy,” says Jeff Berwick at the beginning of the video linked below:

“This is mostly all orchestrated,” says Berwick.

SHTFPlan also warned that the real problem will be the rioting and looting, and general social unrest caused by the collapse of the central banking’s debt-based monetary system. COVID-19 was most likely a cover for the collapse of the central bank they (the ruling class and elitists) already knew was coming.

The Worst Part About The Pandemic Isn’t The Virus, It’s The Mass Panic Which Will Cause An Economic Collapse

Coronavirus Crisis: The Virus Will Bankrupt More People Than It Kills

Although, we thought it would be due to the unemployment and extreme poverty and overly exaggerated levels of fear caused by the government’s reaction to the coronavirus plandemic.  Of course, none of this would be possible without the help of the mainstream media. Nonetheless, the collapse is here.

The next step will be to bring in United Nations troops to make sure you’re effectively enslaved. All of the agendas are being attempted right now. There are only two options. One, complete enslavement for all of mankind for the rest of humanity’s existence. Or two, the complete abolishment of all slavery (all power structures), meaning absolute freedom. Figure out which side you’re on because ultimately, it will end in one of those two scenarios. Our hope is that it’s the latter.

Alan Dershowitz born free civil disobedience democide despotism forced vaccinations freedom Government Headline News human rights Intelwars Murder no rights oppression Pentagon Police State power grabs social unrest swat raids TOTALITARIANISM tyranny violence by the state voluntaryism

The Slippery Slope to Despotism: Paved with Lockdowns, Raids and Forced Vaccinations

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

“You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business… And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.”—Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor

You have no rights.

That’s the lesson the government wants us to learn from this COVID-19 business.

Well, the government is wrong.

For years now, the powers-that-be—those politicians and bureaucrats who think like tyrants and act like petty dictators regardless of what party they belong to—have attempted to brainwash us into believing that we have no right to think for ourselves, make decisions about our health, protect our homes and families and businesses, act in our best interests, demand accountability and transparency from government, or generally operate as if we are in control of our own lives.

We have every right, and you know why? Because we were born free.

As the Declaration of Independence states, we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights—to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness—that no government can take away from us.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped the government from constantly trying to usurp our freedoms at every turn. Indeed, the nature of government is such that it invariably oversteps its limits, abuses its authority, and flexes its totalitarian muscles.

Take this COVID-19 crisis, for example.

What started out as an apparent effort to prevent a novel coronavirus from sickening the nation (and the world) has become yet another means by which world governments (including our own) can expand their powers, abuse their authority, and further oppress their constituents.

Until now, the police state has been more circumspect in its power grabs, but this latest state of emergency has brought the beast out of the shadows.

We are on a slippery slope to outright despotism.

This road we are traveling is paved with lockdowns, SWAT team raids, mass surveillance and forced vaccinations. It is littered with the debris of our First and Fourth Amendment freedoms.

This is what we have to look forward to in the months and years to come unless we can find some way to regain control over our runaway government.

The government has made no secret of its plans.

Just follow the money trail, and you’ll get a sense of what’s in store: more militarized police, more SWAT team raids, more surveillance, more lockdowns, more strong-armed tactics aimed at suppressing dissent and forcing us to comply with the government’s dictates.

It’s chilling to think about, but it’s not surprising.

We’ve been warned.

Remember that Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command? The one that anticipates the future domestic political and social problems the government is grooming its armed forces to solve through the use of martial law?

The chilling five-minute training video, obtained by The Intercept through a FOIA request and made available online, paints a dystopian picture of the future bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots.

But here’s the kicker: what they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

This COVID-19 crisis is pushing us that much closer to that dystopian vision becoming a present-day reality.

For starters, let’s talk about the COVID-19 stormtroopers, SWAT team raids, and ongoing flare-ups of police brutality.

With millions of dollars in stimulus funds being directed towards policing agencies across the country, the federal government plans to fight this COVID-19 virus with riot gear, gas masks, ballistic helmets, drones, and hi-tech surveillance technology.

Indeed, although crime rates have fallen dramatically in the midst of this global COVID-19 lockdown, there’s been no relief from the brutality and violence of the American police state.

While the majority of the country has been social distancing under varying degrees of lockdowns, it’s been business as usual for the nation’s SWAT teams and police trained to shoot first and ask questions later.

In Kentucky, plain-clothed cops in unmarked cars used a battering ram to break down Breonna Taylor’s door and carry out a no-knock raid on her home after midnight. Fearing a home invasion, the 26-year-old emergency medical technician and her boyfriend—who had been in bed at the time of the invasion—called 911 and prepared to defend themselves. Taylor’s boyfriend shot one of the intruders—later identified as police—in the leg. Police fired at least 20 shots into the apartment and a neighboring home, killing Taylor. The drug dealer who was the target of the late-night raid lived 10 miles away and had already been arrested prior to the raid on Taylor’s home.

In Illinois, police opened fire in a subway station, shooting a 33-year-old man who allegedly resisted their attempts to tackle and arrest him for violating a city ordinance by passing between two cars of a moving train. Ariel Roman, a short-order cook, claimed he was suffering from an anxiety attack when he was “harassed, chased, tackled, pepper-sprayed, tasered and shot twice” by police.

In Maryland, police dispatched on a nuisance call to break up a crowd of neighborhood kids( half of them teenagers, and the other half youngsters around 4 and 5 years old) gathered in an apartment complex parking lot opened fire on a 29-year-old man seen exiting his car with a gun. An eyewitness claimed “the officer pointed a flashlight and his gun at the group immediately and began chasing and shooting a minute or two after getting out of the patrol car.” Police reportedly shot the man after he threw down his gun and ran in the opposite direction.

In Virginia, more than 80 local, state, and federal police agents risked spreading COVID-19 to “a highly vulnerable population” when they raided a low income, public housing community in an effort to crackdown on six individuals suspected of selling, on average, $20 to $100 worth of drugs.

In Texas, a SWAT team backed up with a military tank Armored Personnel Carrier raided Big Daddy Zane’s Bar whose owner and patrons were staging a peaceful First and Second Amendment protest of the governor’s shutdown orders.

Police have even been called out to shut down churches, schools and public parks and beaches that have been found “in violation” of various lockdown orders.

Now there’s talk of mobilizing the military to deliver forced vaccinations, mass surveillance in order to carry out contact tracing, and heavy fines and jail time for those who dare to venture out without a mask, congregate in worship without the government’s blessing or re-open their businesses without the government’s say-so.

There are rumblings that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will start thermal screenings to monitor passengers’ temperatures in the coming weeks. This is in addition to the virtual strip searches that have become routine aspects of airport security.

Restaurants in parts of the country are being tasked with keeping daily logs of phone numbers, emails, and arrival times for everybody who participates in dine-services, with no mention of how long such records will be kept on file, with whom they will be shared, and under what circumstances.

With the help of Google and Nest cameras, hospitals are morphing into real-time surveillance centers with round-the-clock surveillance cameras monitoring traffic in patients’ rooms. Forget patient privacy, however. Google has a track record of sharing surveillance footage with police.

And then rounding out the power-grabs, the Senate just voted to give police access to web browsing data without a warrant, which would dramatically expand the government’s Patriot Act surveillance powers. The Senate also voted to give Attorney General William Barr the ability to look through the web browsing history of any American — including journalists, politicians, and political rivals — without a warrant, just by saying it is relevant to an investigation. If enacted, privacy experts warn  that the new provisions threaten to undermine the free press by potentially preventing the media from exposing abuses of power or acting as a watchdog against political leaders.

If we haven’t already crossed over, we’re skating dangerously close to that line that keeps us on the functioning side of a constitutional republic. It won’t take much to push us over that edge into a full-blown banana republic.

In many ways, this is just more of the same heavy-handed tactics we’ve been seeing in recent years but with one major difference: this COVID-19 state of emergency has invested government officials (and those who view their lives as more valuable than ours) with a sanctimonious, self-righteous, arrogant, Big Brother Knows Best approach to top-down governing, and the fall-out can be seen far and wide.

It’s an ugly, self-serving mindset that views the needs, lives and rights of “we the people” as insignificant when compared to those in power.

That’s how someone who should know better such as Alan Dershowitz, a former Harvard law professor, can suggest that a free people—born in freedom, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights, and living in a country birthed out of a revolutionary struggle for individual liberty—have no rights to economic freedom, to bodily integrity, or to refuse to comply with a government order with which they disagree.

According to Dershowitz, who has become little more than a legal apologist for the power elite, “You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business… And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.”

Dershowitz is wrong: while the courts may increasingly defer to the government’s brand of Nanny State authoritarianism, we still have rights.

The government may try to abridge those rights, it may refuse to recognize them, it may even attempt to declare martial law and nullify them, but it cannot litigate, legislate or forcefully eradicate them out of existence.

Up to now, we’ve been largely passive participants in this experiment in self-governance. Our inaction and inattention has left us at the mercy of power-hungry politicians, corrupt corporations, and brutal, government-funded militias.

Wake up, America.

As I  make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, these ongoing violations of our rights—this attitude by the government that we have no rights—this tyrannical movement that is overtaking our constitutional republic and  gaining in momentum and power by the minute—this incessant auction block in which government officials appointed to represent our best interests keep selling us out to the highest bidder—all of these betrayals scream for a response.

To quote the great Rod Serling: “If we don’t listen to that scream—and if we don’t respond to it—we may well wind up sitting amidst our own rubble, looking for the truck that hit us—or the bomb that pulverized us. Get the license number of whatever it was that destroyed the dream. And I think we will find that the vehicle was registered in our own name.”

America On The Brink? Shocking Images Show “Pennsylvania Militia” Rolling Up To “Reopen America” Rally

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

America could be standing on the edge of a revolution. Seriously, well, with National Guard troops deployed across the country, any uprising would likely be squashed.

We noted late last month that a “social bomb” was set to detonate over major Western cities. It was thought that the epicenter of unrest could begin deep within inner cities, such as those in Baltimore and Detroit, but that might not be the case.

It appears tensions are soaring among anti-quarantine protesters and state governments. The lockdown backlash started last Thursday in Lansing, Michigan.

Anti-quarantine rallies sprouted up across the country over the weekend, organized by right-wing groups that held rallies in Texas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Nevada, Maryland, Utah, Wisconsin, Washington, and Colorado.

Attempting to show force, some protesters wielded rifles, handguns, and shotguns, along with American flags, Betsy Ross flags, Trump signs and “Don’t Tread On Me” flags right up to the doorsteps of some state capital buildings.

The sight is absolutely stunning, but before we continue, we must understand the right-wing groups that organized the rallies are fed up with quarantine orders enforced by state governments to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While it is open for discussion if the strict lockdowns were worth it, several things are evident, and why many of these protesters are angry, is that the economy has crashed into depression, 22 million jobs lost, businesses bankrupted, and hunger crisis unfolding. Combined this all together, and a perfect storm of unrest could be nearing.

While we could show you images of the latest rallies from across the country, that would be a bit too much. So, let’s focus on the “reopen” Pennsylvania demonstration on Monday (April 20). The location was Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, more specifically, at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex.

The Daily Caller, citing AFP images, captured the moment when an M35 series 2½-ton 6×6 military truck, converted for civilian use, and packed with heavily armed protesters, arrived at the demonstration.

Seen within the rear of the vehicle, protesters were wielding AR-15s and shotguns.

Here’s a video of the “Pennsylvania Militia” rolling up to the rally.

 

Another protester was carrying an AK-47 or AK-47 style rifle.

Another group with guns.

More pictures show the overall crowd at the steps of the capitol building, holding signs that read: “Free PA,” “Tyranny kills,” “Let America Work Again,” and “We Do Not Consent.”

Rallies to “reopen” the American economy unfolded across the country after President Trump tweeted: “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!,” “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!,” and “LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!”

President Trump is eager to reopen the economy and save it from crushing depression. The danger of reviving the economy too soon is that it could spark the second wave of the coronavirus.

With warmer weather trends expected for the US, anti-quarantine rallies are only set to increase.

Balance sheet Bretton Woods agreement Central Bank debt issuance Economy experts Federal Reserve Forecasting Gold gold standard Government Headline News Intelwars Money Printing Overreach overreaction Precious Metals public spending reset social distancing social unrest Stock Prices tyranny United States War ww2

SYSTEM RESET: $3,448 Gold – MASSES TOTALLY NAÏVE!

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

I want to treat what we’re going through AS IF IT WERE WAR since the reaction is no less than that. Even in wartime, quarantines, stay-at-home orders, curfews, and temperature checking measures, as well as mandated vaccines, are CONSIDERED DESPERATE MEASURES and tyrannical policies.

In wartime, all of the resources are focused on WINNING IT. This is exactly what’s happening at the moment. During conflicts, there are casualties, wounded (infected, in this case), frontlines (hospitals, in this case), and UNMATCHED government intervention. In our current era, there is also UNPARALLELED central bank balance sheet expansion.

You can clearly see that even during WW2 when the gold standard was in place, the government will spend when it determines that it NEEDS TO, and the deficits could be QUITE OVERWHELMING.

History is clear that after such OUTRAGEOUS government spending, the public immediately demands a reversion to the mean, which means A RESET – a real one. In 1945, the last time Washington WENT NUTS on public spending, the Bretton Woods agreement came about.

Check out how the 1940-1944 period LED TO an utter reset:

In less than two weeks, the U.S. economy will begin to REOPEN, but it won’t be SIMPLE. Measures such as social distancing, no shopping centers, no gatherings of over 50-100 people, no schools, no international traveling, and other protective restrictions will MAKE A “V”-SHAPED recovery impossible.

This is going to put a seal on higher STOCK PRICES. We saw a lightning-fast bounce in the markets, which are up over 30% since the March lows, but there’s no reason for anyone, sophisticated or rookie, to chase stocks much higher, even if they have a long-term outlook (2 to 5 years).

STOCKS AREN’T CHEAP.

To recap:

  1. Bonds are beyond expensive, brushing on being ALMOST IRRELEVANT to free markets (super-bubble).
  2. Stocks are expensive, with NO JUSTIFICATION to go higher (earnings will not improve for 1-3 years).
  3. Systemic risk is being avoided – the need for holding cash is DIMINISHED. Investors want to put money to work and are LOOKING FOR RELATIVE VALUE.

Conclusion:

Reopening while keeping many EMPLOYEES out of work since their industries are DEEMED TOO RISKY, will result in slow recovery and MONETIZED DEBT ISSUANCE.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The uptrend in the gold/equities ratio is CLEAR AS DAY.

Assuming we only REVERT to mean and DON’T OVERSHOOT, and assuming the S&P 500 stays flat for the foreseeable future, a 1.2x multiple to the S&P 500 brings us to ($2,874*1.2=$3,448). This is PURE MATHEMATICS.

The amount of oil that is stored will PUT A LID on prices going forward. I don’t think that $20/barrel is a long-term SUSTAINABLE price, but in the coming months, there’s A SERIOUS GLUT to work through.

Salaries and abundance in workforces will allow companies to retain personnel quickly while keeping margins HIGH.

Nowhere is this advantage of (1) low energy prices and (2) stagnant salaries MORE IMPORTANT than in the commodities sector, where oil and labor are the TWO LARGEST expenses.

Newmont Mining is already the SECOND-BEST performing stock this year in the S&P 500.

Other mining operators are also GENERATING big returns as well.

In order to keep the millions of unemployed workers of the airline, casino, cruise line, hotel, restaurant, tourism, clothing, furniture, and other FROZEN industries WHOLE, the government will continue paying larger-than-normal BENEFITS.

More money out the door without increases in productivity is a RECIPE FOR INFLATION if I’ve ever seen one.

My projection:

Gold might see some headwinds in the coming weeks because so many people moved into the trade in the past few weeks, but it will build the new baseline at around $1,750. From there, we climb to a NEW ALL-TIME HIGH.

Next, infrastructure programs will cause IN-DEFICIT base metals, such as copper, to enjoy ROBUST FUNDAMENTALS.

As we previously warned, this pandemic will bankrupt and kill more people from suicide than the virus will. When you sacrifice people’s livelihoods, you create a difficult situation of desperation for many who will see no other way out.

TRUMP: Suicides From The Coming Economic Depression Will FAR SURPASS Those From The Virus

Coronavirus Crisis: The Virus Will Bankrupt More People Than It Kills

We are about to have a mental health crisis during an economic depression that will be tough to live through.  The virus is no longer the problem.  The government’s reaction has been the problem and even some politicians have figured it out. Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs revealed in a weekly update that our solution to this pandemic has not been a good one. “Thus far, our reaction to COVID-19 has been to sacrifice the global economy,” said Jacobs. “The truth is: a sick economy produces sick people.”

Most people don’t want to hear the truth, unfortunately, and the longer state governments insist on businesses being closed and an economy shut down to combat what’s looking like a fairly insignificant virus for most of the population, the aftermath will worsen.  Each day that drags on will make the next few years more difficult.

“Last year, our medical examiner performed autopsies for 199 confirmed or suspected suicides from across the region, with 83 of those coming from Knox County. Over the past 48 hours, that office has now examined nine suspected suicides, eight of which are from Knox County alone. For Knox County, that’s almost ten percent of last year’s total number in the past two days alone,” Jacobs added.

We’ve said it before and it needs to be said again, we should no longer be preparing for a pandemic, but social unrest, violence, and economic depression. he longer the economy is shut down, the more horrific the future social unrest will be. Jacobs is questioning the tyrannical measures and authoritarian power grabs by politicians.

Jacobs called the suicide numbers “utterly shocking” and said he is questioning if the government is taking the right approach in responding to COVID-19. “Is what we are doing now really the best approach? How can we respond to COVID-19 in a way that keeps our economy intact, keeps people employed, and empowers our people with a feeling of hope and optimism, not desperation and despair?” he said.

“That’s startling and disturbing and really, really challenging to think about how some of the things we have to do as a community right now could be contributing to these things,” she said. “The more important message today that I want to deliver is that now more than ever we need to be kinder and gentler with ourselves and with each other. If there’s anybody out there who’s struggling, I encourage you to reach out.”

We want to thank Jacobs for standing up against all the other tyrants out there using this virus as an excuse to commit economic suicide and impoverish millions of people. Now let’s face reality: it’s time to reopen the economy and salvage what’s left if we can.  The longer this drags on, the direr our situation becomes.

CDC civil rights comply Coronavirus COVID-19 economic ramifications enslaved food crisis Great Depression Headline News human rights Intelwars lockdown mass surveillance Obey pandemic Riots shutdowns social unrest tracked tracking unemployment violations

You Are Being Tracked: More Than You Were Before

The United States government has rolled out incredibly totalitarian measures that amount to human rights violations in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.  Unfortunately, long after this pandemic is a distance memory, the authoritarian controls will still be in place.

Local governments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have received the anonymized data about people in areas of “geographic interest,” with the aim being to create a portal of geolocation information for 500 cities across the country. The development follows reports of other countries using cellphone data to monitor citizens and see if they are complying with curbs on movement, and elimination of income in order to defeat the viral outbreak.

Simple Prepper Hacks To AVOID Getting The Flu

European mobile carriers have reportedly been sharing data with health authorities in Italy, Germany, and Austria, while at the same time respecting Europe’s privacy laws. Earlier this month, Israel passed emergency measures that allow security agencies to track the smartphone data of people with suspected COVID-19 and find others they may have come into contact with.

Even if you end up making it through this pandemic without getting sick, the economic ramifications are going to be immense and it’s expected that the government will use the implemented mass surveillance and tracked to squash riots.  It’s likely that this pandemic will affect you for much longer than the virus will. The mainstream media is calling those who care about people’s livelihoods “greedy,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth.  If people cannot feed their families, the social unrest and riots that could result from this lockdown may be overwhelming and could result in a massive amount of suicides and homicides.  The mainstream media can continue to ignore that fact all they’d like, but people will get violent if they get hungry.

Pandemic-related unemployment and shutdowns are a recipe for social unrest, reported Reason.  That’s a huge concern as forecasters expect the U.S. unemployment rate in the months to come to surpass that seen during the depths of the Great Depression.  If that happens, the fallout from the shutdown will be worse than the deaths during this pandemic. Expect these totalitarian measures being put in place now to be used to control the public when they can’t make a living anymore.

America apocalyptic bear markets clients Commodities Coronavirus COVID-19 economic suicide experts Federal government Forecasting Gold Headline News hyper inflation imposing Intelwars job losses left destitute Market Crash Pay The Bills Precious Metals Rioting social unrest Stay at home

OUT OF GOLD: Severe Shortfall – Market RESUSCITATION FAILS!

This article was originally published by Lior Gantz at The Wealth Research Group. 

Soldiers, Police, FEMA – Essentially, Martial Law

 

The markets are open, the banks are functioning, food is there for the average American to purchase, for the most part, and the Covid-19 is getting ALL of the attention on the municipal, state and, of course, the federal level. Still, we’ve just SUFFERED the steepest-ever MARKET CRASH that America has ever had to endure.

The chart below shows the comparison with the 20th and 21st centuries’ most APOCALYPTIC bear markets and nothing even comes close to this one!

We are living in the most DISRUPTIVE RESET since WW1. In wartime, in contrast to the ECONOMIC SUICIDE we’re imposing on ourselves, the economic machine still functions.

In a SUPER-DEFLATION, everyone is just sitting on cash, selling any asset that is liquid, cutting all non-essential expenses and barely making it by. In this scenario, the potential for RIOTING and for SOCIAL DISORDER is realistic.

Millions of people have either lost a bloody fortune, lost a loved one, lost their job, lost their clients, been forced to stay at your home without the ability to pay the bills or, WORSE yet, have been left DESTITUTE.

Look at this horrific market crash:

It would be suicidal to buy the dip in a meaningful way now. There’s NO RUSH at all. The markets have given back a lot, but with NO MATERIAL PROGRESS on an approved drug to treat the virus, no VACCINE on the horizon, more SHUTDOWNS announced (NYC, California, Chicago, Baltimore, Italy, regions of China, Israel, Spain, France and The Netherlands), the most important ECONOMIC POSITIVE event would be to see the community spread DIMINISH, so we can start getting back to routine.

Right now, there are no signs of that occurring.

In fact, if anything, we’re seeing clothing manufacturers turning into mask producers. We’re seeing companies RE-FITTING their floors to produce ventilators, hospital beds and all the essentials needed to make sure the healthcare system is ready for the population at large to step back out and live normal lives, with the notion that most will contract the disease and get treatment.

Unless a GAME-CHANGER catalyst surfaces by way of a drug, the federal government is “buying time,” stalling until it can’t quarantine anymore and must allow the people to resume their routine, even if it’s a new one.

As you can see below, even though this has been a CATASTROPHE, more EMERGENCIES could be on the horizon, since this biological and medical crisis is actually ESCALATING. We’re learning that the younger generation is certainly NOT IMMUNE, as was previously believed.

Since many of us are confined to our homes, it’s difficult to TRULY COMPREHEND the daily struggle of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank to keep the credit market OPEN.

There’s an ACUTE shortage of buyers, even for T-bills. I’m 100% CONVINCED that President Trump is concocting a plan for a massive 50-yr bond with 0% interest and, if there’s not SUFFICIENT demand for it, Jerome Powell will shove that bond onto his balance sheet, which is already a SICK JOKE.

This fiat monetary system is such an illusory concept, which works mostly because of the reluctance to come up with better solutions – since there ARE NONE – that don’t require a gold standard, and politicians certainly HATE THAT IDEA.

On Friday, I made the rounds, calling the most trusted bullion dealers in America, some of them close contacts of mine; I’m going to CAPITALIZE on the disparity and POLARITY between the TOTALLY FAKE paper ETFs and the BULLSHIT spot price and the real price that silver is BIDDING online and with the dealers. Silver Eagles sell for over $20/coin, while spot is around $12!

Personally, I’m using the options market to do this.

In short, my analysis is that with the disruption to supply chains and the mandated closures of mines, which will then take MONTHS to re-open, the price of silver will be so much HIGHER than what’s shown on the COMEX.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

I believe a DEFLATION HURRICANE like this will birth a totally new global financial culture, as 1987, 2000 and 2008 have done prior to this.

The recently-approved RESCUE PACKAGE is worth $2 trillion, which is a FREAKY amount. This money will go somewhere, and I estimate that much of it will be devoted to the DE-GLOBALIZATION effort on the part of companies. This means salaries for American workers will rise, demand for raw materials will dramatically expand and inflation will be a huge risk when the entire planet operates on ZIRP and NIRP.

This crash has cost equity losses of $30 trillion, which is NEARLY 135% the size of GDP for the USA. The volatility of this bear market crash and the coming depression is the most severe in history. I’ve been in communications with fund managers, who EXPRESS the concern that DOLLAR demand is putting the system on the brink of derailment.

From the 13th of March, the U.S. dollar has gone up by 9%, which is its most DRAMATIC rally since it was formed!

The reason is because NOTHING is considered safe and I mean NOTHING. Investors even question Washington’s SOLVENCY, as you can see below:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

A quarter of a trillion dollars has moved back into money-market accounts. This is a MIND-BOGGLING run on equities of all kinds.

People around the world are sleeping with cash tucked under their pillows, figuratively speaking.

New York City, the world’s most iconic metropolis, will now be under QUASI-martial law. The Army is deployed.

Globally, over one billion people are at home. 85 million Americans are quarantined.

We will defeat the virus, I’m certain of that – but at what cost?

At the start and close of each day, I go over my principles, making sure that the virus and its impact don’t leave a scar on my psyche.

This is what I READ!

accept the state authoritarian China control Coronavirus COVID-19 Crowd Control dictates FEMA camps forced quarantine government censors Headline News human rights Intelwars isolation Italy Mainstream media medical martial law militarized police nationwide lockdown Orwellian Police State POVERTY Preparedness social unrest

This Is a Test: How Will the Constitution Fare During a Nationwide Lockdown?

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

“It takes a remarkable force to keep nearly a million people quietly indoors for an entire day, home from work and school, from neighborhood errands and out-of-town travel. It takes a remarkable force to keep businesses closed and cars off the road, to keep playgrounds empty and porches unused across a densely populated place 125 square miles in size. This happened … not because armed officers went door-to-door, or imposed a curfew, or threatened martial law. All around the region, for 13 hours, people locked up their businesses and ‘sheltered in place’ out of a kind of collective will. The force that kept them there wasn’t external – there was virtually no active enforcement across the city of the governor’s plea that people stay indoors. Rather, the pressure was an internal one – expressed as concern, or helpfulness, or in some cases, fear – felt in thousands of individual homes.”—Journalist Emily Badger, “The Psychology of a Citywide Lockdown”

This is a test.

This is not a test of our commitment to basic hygiene or disaster preparedness or our ability to come together as a nation in times of crisis, although we’re not doing so well on any of those fronts.

No, what is about to unfold over the next few weeks is a test to see how well we have assimilated the government’s lessons in compliance, fear and police state tactics; a test to see how quickly we’ll march in lockstep with the government’s dictates, no questions asked; and a test to see how little resistance we offer up to the government’s power grabs when made in the name of national security.

Most critically of all, this is a test to see whether the Constitution—and our commitment to the principles enshrined in the Bill of Rights—can survive a national crisis and true state of emergency.

Here’s what we know: whatever the so-called threat to the nation—whether it’s civil unrest, school shootings, alleged acts of terrorism, or the threat of a global pandemic in the case of COVID-19—the government has a tendency to capitalize on the nation’s heightened emotions, confusion and fear as a means of extending the reach of the police state.

This coronavirus epidemic, which has brought China’s Orwellian surveillance out of the shadows and caused Italy to declare a nationwide lockdown, threatens to bring the American Police State out into the open on a scale we’ve not seen before.

If and when a nationwide lockdown finally hits—if and when we are forced to shelter in place— if and when militarized police are patrolling the streets— if and when security checkpoints have been established— if and when the media’s ability to broadcast the news has been curtailed by government censors—if and when public systems of communication (phone lines, internet, text messaging, etc.) have been restricted—if and when those FEMA camps the government has been surreptitiously building finally get used as quarantine detention centers for American citizens—if and when military “snatch and grab” teams are deployed on local, state, and federal levels as part of the activated Continuity of Government plans to isolate anyone suspected of being infected with COVID-19—and if and when martial law is enacted with little real outcry or resistance from the public—then we will truly understand the extent to which the government has fully succeeded in recalibrating our general distaste for anything that smacks too overtly of tyranny.

This is how it begins.

The coronavirus epidemic may well be a legitimate health concern, but it’s the government’s response to it that worries me more in the long term.

Based on the government’s track record and its long-anticipated plans for instituting martial law (using armed forces to solve domestic political and social problems) in response to a future crisis, there’s good reason to worry.

This is not a government with a rosy view of the future.

To the contrary, the government’s vision of the future is particularly ominous if a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command is anything to go by.

Obtained by The Intercept through a FOIA request, the training video titled “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity” provides a chilling glimpse of what the government expects the world to look like in 2030, a world bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots.

Add health contagions to the mix, and we’re arrived there, ten years ahead of schedule.

The training video is only five minutes long, but it says a lot about the government’s mindset and the way it views the citizenry. Even more troubling, however, is what this military video doesn’t say about the Constitution and the rights of the citizenry: nothing at all.

In typical fashion, the government seems to consider the Constitution only when forced to do so. It complies with the dictates of the Constitution even less frequently. Indeed, the government’s efforts to systematically lock down the nation and shift us into martial law have not been stymied one iota by the restraints imposed upon it by the Constitution: when it’s not bulldozing its way through the Fourth Amendment, the government just sidesteps it (with the help of the courts).

So what should you expect if the government decides to declare a national state of emergency and institute a nationwide lockdown?

More of the same of what we’ve been seeing in recent years.

After all, like the proverbial boiling frogs, the government has been gradually acclimating us to the specter of a police state for years now: Militarized police. Riot squads. Camouflage gear. Black uniforms. Armored vehicles. Mass arrests. Pepper spray. Tear gas. Batons. Strip searches. Surveillance cameras. Kevlar vests. Drones. Lethal weapons. Less-than-lethal weapons unleashed with deadly force. Rubber bullets. Water cannons. Stun grenades. Arrests of journalists. Crowd control tactics. Intimidation tactics. Brutality.

This is how you prepare a populace to accept a police state willingly, even gratefully.

You don’t scare them by making dramatic changes. Rather, you acclimate them slowly to their prison walls. Persuade the citizenry that their prison walls are merely intended to keep them safe and danger out. Desensitize them to violence, acclimate them to a military presence in their communities, and persuade them that only a militarized government can alter the seemingly hopeless trajectory of the nation.

It’s happening already.

The sight of police clad in body armor and gas masks, wielding semiautomatic rifles and escorting an armored vehicle through a crowded street, a scene likened to “a military patrol through a hostile city,” no longer causes alarm among the general populace.

We’ve allowed ourselves to be acclimated to the occasional lockdown of government buildings, Jade Helm military drills in small towns so that special operations forces can get “realistic military training” in “hostile” territory, and  Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers, and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis.

Still, you can’t say we weren’t warned.

Back in 2008, an Army War College report revealed that “widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.” The 44-page report went on to warn that potential causes for such civil unrest could include another terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”

In 2009, reports by the Department of Homeland Security surfaced that called on the government to subject right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans to full-fledged pre-crime surveillance.

Meanwhile, the government has been amassing an arsenal of military weapons, including hollow-point bullets, for use domestically and equipping and training their “troops” for war. Even government agencies with largely administrative functions such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Smithsonian have been acquiring body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition. In fact, there are now at least 120,000 armed federal agents carrying such weapons who possess the power to arrest.

Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to turn American citizens into enemy combatants (and America into a battlefield) is a technology sector that has been colluding with the government to create a Big Brother that is all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable. It’s not just the drones, fusion centers, license plate readers, stingray devices and the NSA that you have to worry about. You’re also being tracked by the black boxes in your cars, your cell phone, smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty cards, social media accounts, credit cards, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and e-book reader accounts.

All of this has taken place right under our noses, funded with our taxpayer dollars and carried out in broad daylight without so much as a general outcry from the citizenry.

And then you have the government’s Machiavellian schemes for unleashing all manner of dangers on an unsuspecting populace, then demanding additional powers in order to protect “we the people” from the threats. Almost every national security threat that the government has claimed greater powers in order to fight—all the while undermining the liberties of the American citizenry—has been manufactured in one way or another by the government.

We have made it way too easy for the government to lock down the nation.

Consider that it was seven years ago when the city of Boston was locked down while police carried out a military-style manhunt for suspects in the 2013 Boston Marathon explosion.

Six years ago, the city of Ferguson, Missouri, was locked down, with government officials deploying a massive SWAT team, an armored personnel carrier, men in camouflage pointing heavy artillery at the crowd, smoke bombs and tear gas to quell citizen unrest over a police shooting of a young, unarmed black man.

Five years ago, the city of Baltimore was put under a military-enforced lockdown after civil unrest over police brutality erupted into rioting. More than 1,500 national guard troops were deployed while residents were ordered to stay inside their homes and put under a 10 pm curfew.

Three years ago, it was Charlottesville, Va., population 50,000, that was locked down while government officials declared a state of emergency and enacted heightened security measures tantamount to martial law, despite the absence of any publicized information about credible threats to public safety.

Fast forward to the present moment, with the world on the verge of a possible coronavirus pandemic, and growing numbers of Americans are already voluntarily sheltering in place in an effort to avoid falling ill.

For those like myself who have studied emerging police states, the sight of any American city placed under martial law—its citizens essentially under house arrest (officials used the Orwellian phrase “shelter in place” in Boston to describe the mandatory lockdown), military-style helicopters equipped with thermal imaging devices buzzing the skies, tanks and armored vehicles on the streets, and snipers perched on rooftops, while thousands of black-garbed police swarmed the streets and SWAT teams carried out house-to-house searches—leaves us in a growing state of unease.

Watching the events of the various lockdowns unfold, I couldn’t help but think of Nazi Field Marshal Hermann Goering’s remarks during the Nuremberg trials. As Goering noted:

It is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.

It does indeed work the same in every country.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much for the American people to be terrorized into compliance by the government’s latest and greatest scare tactic, even if it means being stripped of one’s constitutional rights at a moment’s notice.

This continual undermining of the rules that protect civil liberties has far-reaching consequences on a populace that not only remains ignorant about their rights but is inclined to sacrifice their liberties for phantom promises of safety.

It may be that we’ve already gone too far down this road. However, don’t let this latest “crisis” cause you to panic to such an extent that you relinquish your fundamental right to make decisions for yourself and your loved ones and willingly surrender what remains of your freedoms.

This too shall pass.

Remember, a police state does not come about overnight.

Yet as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American Peopleno matter how it starts, with a questionable infringement justified in the name of safety or a nationwide lockdown to guard against a global pandemic, it always ends the same: by pushing us one step closer to a future in which the government has all the power and “we the people” have none.

CDC Warns on Coronavirus: “It’s Inevitable…” Here’s How To Prepare

This article was originally published by Tess Pennington at Ready Nutrition. 

With this rapidly evolving outbreak, the CDC has done its best to stay in control of the rhetoric of keeping the public informed. Their main focus was to stay cautiously alert and keep the public calm, but as of today, they have significantly shifted their official statement and there is no denying the fact that coronavirus will come to communities in the U.S.

[UPDATED] As of today, the total number of accumulated COVID-19 infections worldwide is 115,755, with 4,085 deaths.

With this rapidly evolving outbreak, the CDC has done its best to stay in control of the rhetoric of keeping the public informed. Their main focus was to stay cautiously alert and keep the public calm, but as of today, they have significantly shifted their official statement and there is no denying the fact that coronavirus will come to communities in the U.S.

“Ultimately, we expect we will see community spread in the United States,” Nancy Messonnier, a top official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters. “It’s not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses.” (Source)

In another article, “The CDC said the agency would be shifting strategies and using a dual approach. Health officials still plan to try to contain the spread and slow down the spread of the virus into the United States. At the same time, health officials are now urging businesses, health-care facilities, and even schools to plan now for ways to limit the impact of illness when it spreads in the community.”

Without a tested tried-and-true vaccine, it is just a matter of time before the same things that are happening elsewhere start happening here. And with that, also comes the panic from those who are underprepared. The following are six key warning signs you should be looking for. The following information was taken from The Prepper’s Blueprint:

When these events come to pass or you see these signals, you should strongly consider implementing a self-quarantine lockdown:
  1. Emergency officials say they have the situation under control, but more cases continue to pop up.
  2. Local and state governments officially declare an emergency.
  3. Cases have been identified at your local hospital or at schools in your general vicinity.
  4. The general public begins to panic and store shelves start running out of key supplies like food and bottled water.
  5. Looting and lawlessness occur within the local community.
  6. The virus breaches a 50-mile radius surrounding your home or town.

If any of these signs begin to appear around you, it’s time to seriously consider distancing yourself from society, and especially highly dense venues like retail stores, sporting events or schools.

You Have an Opportunity To Get Prepared 

In our last article, 9 Ways to Prepare for COVID-19, we mentioned there is a small block of time to get supplies in order before this virus winds up knocking on your door. Moreover, to be prepared for an infectious outbreak, home quarantine procedures and avoiding contact with the outside will need to be your focus. Therefore, you need to focus on a wide range of preparedness subjects in order to get fully prepared and you are running out of time.

The Grim Reality About Pandemics They Don’t Want You To Know: “No Country is Prepared”

Here’s an important factor to consider: You want to have all supplies and a plan in place before the virus spreads out of control and before government officials force mandatory quarantines. Once the signs start to appear, it may already be too late to start stockpiling supplies because panic-buying will be the order of the day. We’ve already seen this with major internet suppliers of medical gear, who report that their inventories have been nearly cleaned out. The same will happen on a local level.

In this type of disaster, you need to prepare for the likelihood of living in an off-grid setting with the supplies in your home for at least a month. That’s the bare minimum! Here is a basic starter list compiled from portions of The Prepper’s Blueprint. If you are serious about protecting yourself from a potential pandemic there is a lot to do, but the following guidelines can fast-track your preparedness and contingency plans.

Bug In Supplies

Water – Have a short term water supply. Emergency organizations suggest 1 gallon per person for 30 days. If one goes by this suggestion, to have 1 gallon per person per day, a family of 5 will need 35 gallons of water per week. Further, it would be ideal to have some tools to treat water such as a portable filtration system, chemical treatment tablets, etc., as well as a portable filtration system for your bug out bags. To learn the different methods of purifying water, click here.

Note: As a backup plan, consider investing in manual water pumps, tarps, rain gutters for the home to collect rainwater and condensation from the ground, trees, and bushes. This could save your life!

Food – Have a 30-day supply of shelf-stable foods. You need to assume that electricity could go out, therefore look to foods that do not require refrigeration. Create a menu based around your shelf-stable foods to ensure you have enough food to feed your family. Your menu should be realistic in the sense that it will provide your body with the necessary energy needs. At the very least, plan for 1200 calories per meal. Keep healthy whole grains in mind when adding carbohydrates to your larder. Above all, ensure the foods you choose to promote health.

Health – First and foremost, mimic what the healthcare professionals are doing. If the CDC is getting ready and recommending healthcare professionals to have protective equipment or PPE, then you should too! At the very least, here are some items they are recommending to healthcare professionals: Disposable gowns, gloves, NIOSH-certified disposable N95 respirator, eye protection. Further, have a supply of medicines for respiratory illnesses, health-boosting vitamins, immune-boosting teas (try these). Get a full list of pandemic supplies here.

Sanitation – In a pandemic, everyone will fear going to their jobs and all forms of normal life will be on hold. This includes your trash pickups. Have a basic sanitation kit and prepare for the fact that toilets won’t flush, trash won’t be collected and you will be on your own. When sanitary conditions are not up to par, there is an increase in diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and diphtheria. Typically, women and children are the most affected by poor sanitary conditions. Women’s personal hygiene is essential to her health and should be considered a priority in your sanitation preparedness measures. Taking proper precautions and stocking up on sanitary items will help eliminate most issues regarding poor sanitation.

Alternative power – Disasters of any kind cause grid-down scenarios. In this case, if a pandemic ensues, people are not going to risk exposing themselves to a deadly contagion just so the public has their electricity. Prepare to live in an off-grid environment and invest in alternative means of power and invest in rechargeable batteries, solar battery chargers, generators, ample supplies of fuel and even a siphon for fuel. As well, if cold weather threatens the area where you live, have ample firewood and matches or a way to start a fire.

Communication – You can’t cut yourself off from the world, especially in a disaster. Our normal forms of communication – television, cell phones, landlines may not be available following a disaster. Therefore, you will need alternative forms of communication to communicate with neighbors, loved ones or to learn what is happening in your community. Having police scanners, radios, Ham radios to communicate to the outside world will give you a huge advantage in survival and security.

Security – Never underestimate the desperation of those who are unprepared or ill-equipped to survive. When one’s needs are not met, there is nothing they won’t do. Bugging in will require more planning and security on your part. Although living in an urban center may be the most difficult in terms of survival, those that live on the city’s outskirts and suburban areas will not be without their own set of challenges.

Considering that the majority of the U.S. population is centered in 146 of the country’s 3000 counties, chances are most of us live in urban areas, and special attention must be placed on security. We’ve read enough survival stories to know that drug addicts, released prisoners, those with mental illnesses and the unprepared will be the ones looting and pillaging. Those that live in densely populated areas will be the most vulnerable to this. To curtail this, amp up your security endeavors and preps.

For those with special needs, ensure that you have supplies and necessary medication ready for them (infants, elderly, handicapped, etc.).

Tess Pennington is the author of The Prepper’s Blueprint: The Step-By-Step Guide To Help You Through Any Disaster.  Across the ages, in every survival story, a disaster of some sort plays a prominent role. Sometimes the part is played by the government, sometimes it is played by Mother Nature, and other times, the role is taken on by a random mishap. If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not. A crisis rarely stops with a triggering event. The aftermath can spiral, having the capacity to cripple our normal ways of life. Because of this, it’s important to have a well-rounded approach to our preparedness efforts. Due to the overwhelming nature of preparedness, we have created the Prepper’s Blueprint to help get you and your family ready for life’s unexpected emergencies. To make a more comprehensive, easy-to-follow program, The Prepper’s Blueprint has been simplified and divided up in a way to help you make sense of all the preparedness concepts and supply lists provided. We have divided the chapters into layers of preparedness.
