UK Heads Into A Second Lockdown Citing COVID-19 Cases

United Kindom prime minister, Boris Johnson is taking a “cautious approach” to second UK coronavirus lockdown. Restrictions have been announced today, and affect small businesses and the few remainin people who actually have a job.

Pubs and restaurants will be forced to close at 10 p.m. and people will be encouraged to work from home under new restrictions announced Tuesday. So far, Johnson has held back from imposing sweeping restrictions to keep people at home, as was the case at the height of the first wave. However, these measures are going to finish off wha’s left of the economy.

Sadly, people are continuing to follow in lockstep with the demands of these tyrannical politicians. It’s like they haven’t learned their lesson from the first lockdown.

According to Politico, Johnson told the House of Commons that Britain had reached a “perilous turning point” toward a second wave of the virus but said “we are acting on the principle that a stitch in time saves nine.” Johnson added that without a breakthrough in treatments or a vaccination, the new measures could be in place for around six months, but he warned that harsher measures could yet be imposed if the virus continues to spread quickly.

“I must emphasize, that if all our actions fail to bring the [reproduction] number below one, then we reserve the right to deploy greater firepower with significantly greater restrictions,” he told MPs. “I fervently want to avoid taking this step, as do the devolved administrations, but we will only be able to avoid it if our new measures work and our behavior changes.”

There is no doubt that this second lockdown hysteria could spill over into the United States. Prepare now for a second lockdown. Based on the media’s predictive programming, and the response of other countries to the “second wave,” we could be facing another lockdown too.  If it never comes, than at least you’re prepared for the next crisis.

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.

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.

Blame Charles Johnson Chelsea Manning Dana Rohrabacher declined Democratic National Convention dnc Donald Trump emails Headline News Hillary Clinton Integrity Intelwars Jennifer Robinson john podesta Julian Assange Pardon Russian hackers Seth Rich Source torture United States WAR CRIMES

Trump Offered Assange A Pardon In Exchange For His Source, Assange Declined

There is still some integrity in the human race.  Julian Assange was offered a pardon from President Donald Trump in exchange for giving up the source of the Democratic National Convention emails that he leaked.  Assange declined the offer refusing to throw his source under the bus.

Assange’s defense revealed the pardon deal to a court in London on Friday, where the WikiLeaks founder is currently fighting extradition to the United States. Should he lose, he will be tried for espionage offenses and could face 175 years behind bars, according to a report by RT. 

Assange has literally declined the offer to stop the brutal torture he’s enduring in London in order to protect his source. Defense lawyer Jennifer Robinson told the court that former US Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and another Trump campaign associate, Charles Johnson, offered a pardon if Assange were to reveal the source of the emails, which are widely considered to have helped Trump win the 2016 presidential election.

“Rohrabacher proposed a ‘win-win’ situation,” Robinson said.

“Assange can get ‘get on with his life’ – a pardon in exchange for information about the source.”

“Information from Mr Assange about the source of the DNC leaks would be of value to Mr. Trump,” she added, paraphrasing Rohrabacher and Johnson. –RT. 

Ron Paul Interviews Julian Assange: “Going After Wikileaks Because They Humiliated the CIA”

The source of the Democratic National Committee emails remains a mystery, however, there is an abundance of evidence to suggest it was Seth Rich who was mysteriously murdered.  Opponents of both Assange and Trump have pinned the blame on “Russian hackers”, yet Assange himself has gone on record as saying that Russia was not the source.

The espionage charges against Assange stem from WikiLeaks’ publication in 2010 of a tranche of documents revealing U.S. war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq. The documents were leaked by former soldier Chelsea Manning, who was imprisoned from 2010 until her sentence was commuted in 2017.

Virtual School Dangers: The Hazards of a Police State Education During COVID-19

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

“There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984

Once upon a time in America, parents breathed a sigh of relief when their kids went back to school after a summer’s hiatus, content in the knowledge that for a good portion of the day, their kids would be gainfully occupied, out of harm’s way, and out of trouble.

Back then, 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 or suffering through a parent-teacher conference about your shortcomings.

Of course, that was before school shootings became a part of our national lexicon.

As a result, over the course of the past 30 years, the need to keep the schools “safe” from drugs and weapons has become a thinly disguised, profit-driven campaign to transform them into quasi-prisons, complete with surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero-tolerance policies, lockdowns, drug-sniffing dogs, school resource officers, strip searches, and active shooter drills.

Suddenly, under school zero-tolerance policies, students were being punished with suspension, expulsion, and even arrest for childish behavior and minor transgressions such as playing cops and robbers on the playground, bringing LEGOs to school, or having a food fight.

Things got even worse once schools started to rely on police (school resource officers) to “deal with minor rulebreaking: sagging pants, disrespectful comments, brief physical skirmishes.”

As a result, students are being subjected to police tactics such as handcuffs, leg shackles, tasers, and excessive force for “acting up,” in addition to being ticketed, fined, and sent to court for behavior perceived as defiant, disruptive, or disorderly such as spraying perfume and writing on a desk.

This is what constitutes a police state education these days: lessons in compliance meted out with aggressive, totalitarian tactics.

The COVID-19 pandemic has added yet another troubling layer to the ways in which students (and their families) can run afoul of a police state education now that school (virtual or in-person) is back in session.

Significant numbers of schools within the nation’s 13,000 school districts have opted to hold their classes online, in-person or a hybrid of the two, fearing further outbreaks of the virus. Yet this unprecedented foray into the virtual world carries its own unique risks.

Apart from the technological logistics of ensuring that millions of students across the country have adequate computer and internet access, consider the Fourth Amendment ramifications of having students attend school online via video classes from the privacy of their homes.

Suddenly, you’ve got government officials (in this case, teachers or anyone at the school on the other end of that virtual connection) being allowed carte blanche visual access to the inside of one’s private home without a warrant.

Anything those school officials see—anything they hear—anything they photograph or record—during that virtual visit becomes fair game for scrutiny and investigation not just by school officials but by every interconnected government agency to which that information can be relayed: the police, social services, animal control, the Department of Homeland Security, you name it.

After all, this is the age of overcriminalization, when the federal criminal code is so vast that the average American unknowingly commits about three federal felonies per day, a U.S. Attorney can find a way to charge just about anyone with violating federal law.

It’s a train wreck just waiting to happen.

In fact, we’re already seeing this play out across the country. For instance, a 12-year-old Colorado boy was suspended for flashing a toy gun across his computer screen during an online art class. Without bothering to notify or consult with the boy’s parents, police carried out a welfare check on Isaiah Elliott, who suffers from ADHD and learning disabilities.

An 11-year-old Maryland boy had police descend on his home in search of weapons after school officials spied a BB gun on the boy’s bedroom wall during a Google Meet class on his laptop. School officials reported the sighting to the school resource officer, who then called the police.

And in New York and Massachusetts, growing numbers of parents are being visited by social services after being reported to the state child neglect and abuse hotline, all because their kids failed to sign in for some of their online classes. Charges of neglect, in some instances, can lead to children being removed from their homes.

You see what this is, don’t you?

This is how a seemingly well-meaning program (virtual classrooms) becomes another means by which the government can intrude into our private lives, further normalizing the idea of constant surveillance and desensitizing us to the dangers of an existence in which we are never safe from the all-seeing eyes of Big Brother.

This is how the police sidestep the Fourth Amendment’s requirement for probable cause and a court-issued warrant in order to spy us on in the privacy of our homes: by putting school officials in a position to serve as spies and snitches via online portals and virtual classrooms, and by establishing open virtual doorways into our homes through which the police can enter uninvited and poke around.

Welfare checks. Police searches for weapons. Reports to Social Services.

It’s only a matter of time before the self-righteous Nanny State uses this COVID-19 pandemic as yet another means by which it can dictate every aspect of our lives.

At the moment, it’s America’s young people who are the guinea pigs for the police state’s experiment in virtual authoritarianism. Already, school administrators are wrestling with how to handle student discipline for in-person classes and online learning in the midst of COVID-19.

Mark my words, this will take school zero-tolerance policies—and their associated harsh disciplinary penalties—to a whole new level once you have teachers empowered to act as the Thought Police.

As Kalyn Belsha reports for Chalkbeat, “In Jacksonville, Florida, students who don’t wear a mask repeatedly could be removed from school and made to learn online. In some Texas districts, intentionally coughing on someone can be classified as assault. In Memphis, minor misbehaviors could land students in an online ‘supervised study.’”

Depending on the state and the school district, failing to wear a face mask could constitute a dress code violation. In Utah, not wearing a face mask at school constitutes a criminal misdemeanor. In Texas, it’s considered an assault to intentionally spit, sneeze, or cough on someone else. Anyone removing their mask before spitting or coughing could be given a suspension from school.

Virtual learning presents its own challenges with educators warning dire consequences for students who violate school standards for dress code and workspaces, even while “learning” at home. According to Chalkbeat, “In Shelby County, Tennessee, which includes Memphis, that means no pajamas, hats, or hoods on screen, and students’ shirts must have sleeves. (The district is providing ‘flexibility’ on clothing bottoms and footwear when a student’s full-body won’t be seen on video.) Other rules might be even tougher to follow: The district is also requiring students’ work stations to be clear of ‘foreign objects’ and says students shouldn’t eat or drink during virtual classes.”

See how quickly the Nanny State a.k.a. Police State takes over?

All it takes for you to cease being the master of your own home is to have a child engaged in virtual learning. Suddenly, the government gets to have a say in how you order your space and when those in your home can eat and drink and what clothes they wear.

If you think the schools won’t overreact in a virtual forum, you should think again.

These are the same schools that have been plagued by a lack of common sense when it comes to enforcing zero-tolerance policies for weapons, violence, and drugs.

These are the very same schools that have exposed students 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.

Zero tolerance policies that were intended to make schools safer by discouraging the use of actual drugs and weapons by students have turned students into suspects to be treated as criminals by school officials and law enforcement alike while criminalizing childish behavior.

For instance, 9-year-old Patrick Timoney was sent to the principal’s office and threatened with suspension after school officials discovered that one of his LEGOs was holding a 2-inch toy gun. David Morales, an 8-year-old Rhode Island student, ran afoul of his school’s zero-tolerance policies after he wore a hat to school decorated with an American flag and tiny plastic Army figures in honor of American troops. School officials declared the hat out of bounds because the toy soldiers were carrying miniature guns.

A high school sophomore was suspended for violating the school’s no-cell-phone policy after he took a call from his father, a master sergeant in the U.S. Army who was serving in Iraq at the time. In Houston, an 8th grader was suspended for wearing rosary beads to school in memory of her grandmother (the school has a zero-tolerance policy against the rosary, which the school insists can be interpreted as a sign of gang involvement).

Even imaginary weapons (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 detention. Equally outrageous was the case in New Jersey where several kindergartners were suspended from school for three days for playing a make-believe game of “cops and robbers” during recess and using their fingers as guns.

With the distinctions between student offenses erased, and all offenses expellable, we now find ourselves in the midst of what Time magazine described as a “national crackdown on Alka-Seltzer.” Students have actually been suspended from school for possession of the fizzy tablets in violation of zero-tolerance drug policies. Students have also been penalized for such inane “crimes” as bringing nail clippers to school, using Listerine or Scope, and carrying fold-out combs that resemble switchblades.

A 13-year-old boy in Manassas, Virginia, who accepted a Certs breath mint from a classmate, was actually suspended and required to attend drug-awareness classes, while a 12-year-old boy who said he brought powdered sugar to school for a science project was charged with a felony for possessing a look-alike drug.

Acts of kindness, concern, basic manners or just engaging in childish behavior can also result in suspensions.

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.”

Things get even worse when you add police to the mix.

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 (nearly 20,000 by 2003). What this means, notes Mother Jones, is 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 (SROs) have become de facto wardens in the 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.

The horror stories are legion.

One SRO is accused of punching a 13-year-old student in the face for cutting in 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 tased after ignoring an order to put his cell phone away.

A 12-year-old New York student was hauled out of school in handcuffs for doodling on her desk with an erasable marker. Another 12-year-old was handcuffed and jailed after he stomped in a puddle, splashing classmates.

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 for simply failing to follow directions or throwing tantrums.

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

For example, a 4-year-old Virginia preschooler was handcuffed, leg shackled and transported to the sheriff’s office after reportedly throwing blocks and climbing on top of the furniture. School officials claim the restraints were necessary to protect the adults from injury.

6-year-old kindergarten student in a Georgia public school was handcuffed, transported to the police station, and charged with simple battery of a schoolteacher and criminal damage to property for throwing a temper tantrum at school.

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.

Yet these police state tactics did not make the schools any safer.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, police state tactics never make anyone safer so much as they present the illusion of safety and indoctrinate the populace to comply, fear, and march in lockstep with the government’s dictates.

Now with virtual learning in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, the stakes are even higher.

It won’t be long before you start to see police carrying out knock-and-talk investigations based on whatever speculative information is gleaned from those daily virtual classroom sessions that allow government officials entry to your homes in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

It won’t take much at all for SWAT teams to start crashing through doors based on erroneous assumptions about whatever mistaken “contraband” someone may have glimpsed in the background of a virtual classroom session: a maple leaf that looks like marijuana, a jar of sugar that looks like cocaine, a toy gun, someone playfully shouting for help in the distance.

This may sound far-fetched now, but it’s only a matter of time before this slippery slope becomes yet another mile marker on the one-way road to tyranny.

anti-iran news Bahrain defeat fabricate stories failures Hassan Rouhani Headline News humiliating defeat impose sanctions Intelwars Iran ISRAEL Mainstream media Media PALESTINE president stay alert United Arab Emirates United Nations United States wake up War

Iranian President: The U.S. Will Suffer A Humiliating Defeat This Weekend

Photo Credit: AP Photo/Vahid Salemi

Speaking in a Wednesday cabinet session, President Hassan Rouhani said Washington failed in its attempts to reinstate a United Nations arms embargo as well as international sanctions on Iran, and these failures amount to major victories for Iran. Rouhani added that the U.S. would “suffer a humiliating defeat this weekend.”

“The US suffered ignominious defeats,” he said. “Our people should pay attention. This Saturday and Sunday will be days of the Iranian nation’s victory and days of humiliating defeats for the U.S,” he added according to Iran Front Page News.

 

“So, I urge anti-Iran news channels abroad not to fabricate stories that would indicate that the U.S. has made a claim and has waited for a month, so it can use this mechanism,” the president said. “After all, no mechanism ever started in the first place to be producing any results,” he added.

“I congratulate the Iranian nation, in advance, on the success that Iranians will secure on Saturday and Sunday, the same way that I congratulated Iranians on their resistance during the eight-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran [in the 1980s],” he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the president fulminated against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain for normalizing their relations with Israel. “[Israeli authorities] are committing more and more crimes in occupied Palestine every day. How come [the UAE and Bahrain] are extending your hands to Israel? Then you want to give Israel bases in this region. You will be responsible for all grave consequences of this move. Your action is against regulations and regional security,” he said.

A month ago, mainstream media in the U.S. declared that Trump has suffered a “humiliating defeat” at the UN in his efforts to impose sanctions on Iran.

US efforts to indefinitely extend an arms embargo collapsed last week when it suffered a humiliating defeat at the UN Security Council. A resolution sponsored by Washington only secured one other vote from the 15-member UN Security Council.

The US continues to maintain that despite its unilateral withdrawal it nonetheless has “an explicit right” to initiate the snapback sanctions and that any argument to the contrary would “create a perilous precedent that could threaten the force of virtually any Security Council decision.”- Middle East Monitor, 8/20/2020

Hopefully, this doesn’t elude to a war. It’s important information, however. Stay alert and aware. If history has shown us anything, it’s that things will get crazy as the rhetoric ramps up.

Central Banks chaos crash by design crushed destroyed Dollar Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Great Depression Greg Mannarino Headline News Intelwars last battle LIES Main Street no recovery The Federal Reserve unemployment United States Wall Street

The Federal Reserve Is “Fighting the LAST BATTLE!”

The central bank of the United States, the same one that creates dollars out of thin air, is “fighting the last battle.” Things are going to get a lot worse, and it’s all by design.

The goal is a full control centralized dollar and dependence on the system for a universal basic income. In other words, complete slavery is the ultimate final goal of the New World Order. The central banks are in control right now, the dollar is collapsing, and this is all being done on purpose.

The Fed won’t be changing anything dramatically with regards to their monetary policy, and if you already know what the end game is, you know this.  The “last battle” they are fighting now is for ultimate control over every single transaction of all human beings.

Interest rates will be allowed to drop even further and the dollar will be destroyed all while Americans continue to struggle to put food on the table and the corporations get ridiculously wealthy. Last night, Greg Mannarino uploaded his “Market Wrap Up” and tried to remind those listening of what is really going on.

 

“They are on a mission to own it all,” says Mannarino of the Fed’s ultimate plans. “They’re gonna buy more debt, they’re gonna issue more debt, and they’re gonna melt the dollar…nothing is gonna change here. The goal of these central banks is to inflate massively. Debts and deficits are going to balloon.”

Mannarino continued, saying:  “It’s pretty obvious and it should be to anyone that things are going to get monumentally worse by design...it’s all a scam. This entire thing is a charade, it’s fake.”

The United States alone has Great Depression levels of unemployment, half (or more) of small businesses are gone for good, never to return, meanwhile, Wall Street executives are ettin the biggest bonuses in history this year. Let that sink in. There is no recovery. There was never meant to be.

chaotic concede election chaos election terrorism fraudulent Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden left-right paradigm legal team Lie Mail-in voting massive election protection program New World Order plandemic political strategies political theater predictive programming scamdemic United States war room

Biden Expands Legal Team In Preparation For “Voting Fight”

Democrat Joe Biden is gearing up for an election battle. He’s now expanding his legal team to prepare for the election chaos we have promised.

Biden is bringing on two former United States solicitors general and other top attorneys to oversee what could devolve into a fierce battle over the results of November’s vote. The build-up comes as the mainstream media continues to report on the issues confront election officials nationwide as they prepare to conduct this year’s election amid a global plandemic ushering in the New World Order.

President Donald Trump is also anticipating election chaos, suggesting mail-in voting could be fraudulent. The back and forth between Trump and Biden is alluding to major election chaos regardless of the results this November.

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

“For months, the Biden for President campaign has been quietly building a massive election protection program–the largest in presidential campaign history,” a Biden campaign adviser said of the new legal expansion, according to a report by ABC News. He added that the program involves integrated legal, communications, and political strategies to ensure that jurisdictions are properly prepared to handle the challenges that come with holding safe in-person voting and also to combat misinformation about voting via mail.

This election is already messy, to say the least, and it wouldn’t be wise to assume that it’ll smooth out.  It’s only going to get bumpier in the near future. As this election approaches, expect it to get more chaotic. It’s all bein setup and is nothing more than theatre.  Don’t fall for it!

It’s All A Set-Up! Politician Calls For “Unrest In The Streets” Before Election

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder (the guy who ran the Fast & Furious scandal) will also have a roll on the legal team, leading a communications operation aiming to “interact broadly with all stakeholders in voting rights,” per the Biden campaign.

Biden says Trump is sowing distrust in the voting process. “I have confidence that Trump will try and not have that happen, but I’m confident the American public’s going to insist on it,” Biden told reporters outside a polling location in Wilmington when asked if he has confidence that all votes will be counted in November’s election.

cases rise Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci Emergency Preparedness experts fear porn government tyrants Headline News human rights Intelwars johns hopkins university lapdog media lockdown Mainstream media news Preparedness reporting short supply SLAVERY States time is running out tyrants United States Vaccine

Brace Yourselves: MSM Reports Coronavirus Cases Are Up in 11 States

It’s coming: the second lockdown appears all but imminent. The mainstream media is now reporting that the coronavirus cases are on the rise. Brace yourself for another lockdown.

COVID-19 cases were growing by 5% or more, based on a weekly average to smooth out daily reporting, in 11 states as of Sunday, according to a CNBC analysis of data collected by Johns Hopkins University, an increase from eight states on Friday.

While cases are growing in 11 states, the overall daily average of new cases in the U.S. is declining. Over the past seven days, the country has reported an average of about 34,300 new cases per day, down more than 15% compared with a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of Hopkins data. That’s far lower than the roughly 70,000 new cases a day the U.S. was reporting weeks ago. So that means they’ll open up more, right? Doubtful. If the statistics don’t fit the aenda, they will be made to fit the agenda.

It won’t be long before the “experts” start to see a rise in cases all over the country and in all states. It will not take much more than what’s already been reported to worsen to the point of another lockdown.  Please take the time to prepare for what’s coming. Based in what’s being broadcasted now, that there could very well be another harsh lockdown and soon.

Things that I, personally have noticed are in short supply are seeds and canning jars. If you can find either, I suggest grabbing them. If you have doubts about what else is planned for us, take note:

Even if a vaccine is approved to be distributed before the end of the year, it will likely be in short supply. The vaccine will likely require two doses at varying intervals, and states still face logistical challenges such as setting up distribution sites and acquiring enough needles, syringes and bottles needed for immunizations.

For now, leaders can stop new outbreaks by practicing the “basics” of public health and disease control, medical experts and officials say. –CNBC

If we translate that last sentence, CNBC is saying that tyrants in government should forcibly remove basic human rights until we can all be forcibly vaccinated.

Scrolling through the news today was not comforting. It’s time to make sure your preps are in order. Time is running out. Stay safe, and hopefully, you can stay alert and be fearless in the face of this New World Order attempted takeover.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday ordered a new countrywide lockdown for the coronavirus plandemic. Schools and most other parts of the economy are expected to shut down again in a bid to “bring down infection rates.”

Beginning Friday, the start of the Jewish High Holiday season, schools, restaurants, malls, and hotels will shut down, among other businesses, and Israelis will face restrictions on their freedom of movement and on gathering together, their basic right to freedom of assembly.

“Our goal is to stop the increase (in cases) and lower morbidity,” Netanyahu said in a nationally broadcast statement according to Voice of America News. “I know that these steps come at a difficult price for all of us. This is not the holiday we are used to.” That “price” isn’t high for the government, but it’s eternal enslavement for the rest of us.

A second lockdown is looking extremely likely in the United States as well. As we approach fall and the mainstream media continues to perpetuate the fear propaganda,  Dr. Anthony Fauci is also warning us that there is going to be more terrorism committed against the public. We may have seen nothing yet.

The terroristic lockdown is Israel’s second.  The country’s first lockdown destroyed the economy, sending unemployment skyrocketing, and all but ruied the country.  This new lockdown will remain in place for at least three weeks, at which point officials may relax measures if numbers are seen declining. Israelis typically hold large family gatherings and fill synagogues during the important fast of Yom Kippur later this month, settings that officials feared could trigger new outbreaks.

The Persecution Of Christians Is Escalating Dramatically All Over The World

Some government ministers in Israel are wholly blaming the public.  They have pointed fingers at what they’ve called an “undisciplined public,” who they have accused of violating restrictions against public gatherings and mask-wearing. Basically, all of the world’s governments are saying we deserve to have our basic humanity and freedom destroyed because we disobeyed and wanted to take life’s risks upon ourselves, taking the chance that we could get sick.  We live in a disturbing society when the government is balming our enslavement on us when they are the ones continually trying to control and dictate our every move.

If you still think the government is going to help you, you may be in for a shock. People are already struggling to eat and pay for their basic necessities. A second lockdown would finish off what’s left of the middle class for good.

Brace yourselves, and take the time to do an audit of your preps right now. Be prepared for what can come, and it’s not looking good. Stay alert and make sure you understand that this is not about health, it never was. This is about control. Adjust your preparations accordingly (like “beefing up” your self defense capabilities.)

Fauci’s Warning: “Hunker Down” Over Winter, Second Lockdown Coming

Dr. Anthony Fauci alluded to a second lockdown, saying Americans need to “hunker down” this winter because COVID-19 is “not going to be easy.” This is all about control, as the mainstream media reports that coronavirus cases remain “unacceptably high” as schools and restaurants reopen, and flu season approaches.

We have already been warned that a “darkest winter” is in store for us, could that include another lockdown? Most likely. Prepare for it now, because autumn is quickly approaching. We have also already been told they are planning a second lockdown, so that might be something to at least make preparations for right now.

“We need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it’s not going to be easy,” Fauci said during a panel discussion with Harvard Medical School on Thursday according to Market Watch The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases drew on his experience (and fraud) battling the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s, which began with a handful of cases before becoming a global pandemic that has caused tens of millions of deaths and infected more than 70 million people worldwide in the decades since. For an in-depth look at who Fauci really is, check out the documentary, Plandemic. This documentary has been heavily censored all over the internet but can be watched here. 

The psychopath Fauci also warned that we should expect the worse, and not hold out hope that these tyrants will stop committing terrorism against us. “We’ve been through this before,” he said. “Don’t ever, ever underestimate the potential of the pandemic. And don’t try and look at the rosy side of things.”

“I keep looking at that curve, and I get more depressed and more depressed about the fact that we never really get down to the baseline that I’d like,” he said.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Robert Redfield also recently warned that Americans are in for “the worst fall, from a public health perspective, we’ve ever had, citing concerns of a possible “twindemic” of COVID-19 cases and the seasonal flu both overwhelming hospitals. The flu has seen between 140,000 and 810,000 people hospitalized each year since 2010, and is responsible for between 12,000 and 61,000 deaths a year. –Market Watch

It sure looks like they are advertising and ramping up the propaganda for another lockdown.  Be alert, and prepared, but don’t fear. These tyrants feed off of your fear, and this COVID-19 scare is nothing more than that and their own statistics prove it.

Australia is a Full Scale Pilot Test For The New World Order

Several journalists and content creators have noticed that Australia looks like the most totalitarian police state that has existed in recent history.  It has become a full-scale pilot test for the elitists to see how well they can implement the New World Order.

Australians have been subjected to some of the most horrendous basic human rights and dignity violations during this entire scamdemic. The elitists are using Australia to test out these authoritarian measures, such as getting the public used to a police state in which the military and police both patrol the streets ready to commit violence against other humans for refusing to quarantine when not sick or not wearing their New World Order issued muzzle…I mean, face mask.

“These guys know full well what they are doing. They are psychopaths, but they aren’t stupid,” says Brian in the above video. The politicians are redistributing both wealth and power away from the public and consolidating it into their own hands. We are in big trouble if we cannot get the military and the police who are committing violence on behalf of the tyrants to realize what they are doing to humanity.

David Icke To LEOs & Military: “Look Your Children In The Eye” & Tell Them YOU Enforced Tyranny

All of this is over 17 new cases of COVID-19. This absolutely horrifying that people continue to buy this scam. “Heavy-handed tyranny and oppression is happening everywhere,” Brian adds. If you don’t think this is coming back to the United States in the form of a second lockdown, think again.  The media has been preparing us for a “dark winter” and a “second wave” since the first false wave happened.

This Is How We Beat This Beast System: What Unity Looks Like

Wake up. Time is now extremely short. If you don’t have food or water, now is the time to get what you can. If you don’t have emergency plans, now is the time to make some with your family.  If you are already well prepared for any disaster, the best thing you can do is to stay alert and fearless.  Dont’ live a life terrified (they enslave you with your fear), but make sure you know what’s going on. The best preparedness plan includes one of awareness of this situation we’ve found ourselves in today.

Americans authority Central Banks centralized power Coronavirus CORRUPTION Dow Jones Economy elections Emergency Preparedness EMPIRE experts fall of the USSA Federal Reserve Forecasting Headline News Intelwars labor LIES mortgage bonds numbers plandemic propaganda recovery scamdemic Stock Market United States

If You Feel Like Something Really, Really Bad Is About To Happen, You Are Definitely Not Alone

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

If this is “the recovery”, what are things going to look like once economic conditions start to deteriorate again?  As you will see below, more than half of all households in some of our largest cities “are facing serious financial problems”, and Americans continue to file for unemployment benefits at a rate that the United States had never seen before prior to 2020.

When 695,000 workers filed for unemployment benefits during a single week in 1982, it established a record which stood for nearly 38 years.  But now we have been way above that old record for 25 weeks in a row.  On Thursday, we learned that another 884,000 Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits last week…

Weekly jobless claims were worse than expected last week amid a plodding climb for the U.S. labor market from the damage inflicted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Labor Department on Thursday reported 884,000 first-time filings for unemployment insurance, compared with 850,000 expected by economists surveyed by Dow Jones. The total was unchanged from the previous week.

Of course, it is always important to look at the non-adjusted numbers, and according to those numbers, we actually saw an increase over the previous week

The Labor Department changed its methodology in how it seasonally adjusts the numbers, so the past two weeks’ totals are not directly comparable to the reports from earlier in the pandemic. Claims not adjusted for seasonal factors totaled 857,148, an increase of 20,140 from the previous week.

This is the second week in a row that the non-seasonally adjusted initial claims have risen.

That definitely wasn’t supposed to happen.

We are supposedly in a “recovery” right now, and things are supposed to be getting better.

But instead, they appear to be getting worse.  According to Wolf Richter, continuing claims under all state and federal programs were way up last week…

Total continued claims for unemployment insurance (UI) under all state and federal programs rose by 380,000, to 29.6 million people (not seasonally adjusted), the highest since August 1, according to the Department of Labor this morning. This was the second weekly increase in a row, after the 2.2-million jump last week.

At any other time in American history, the numbers that were just reported would be considered “catastrophic”, but we have been getting these sorts of catastrophic numbers for so long that we have become desensitized to them.

But at least the unemployment numbers are not as bad as they were earlier this year, and other economic figures seem to have hit a bit of a plateau as well.

So for the moment, there is relative calm, but it won’t last for very long.

If you feel like something really, really bad is about to happen, you are definitely not alone.  There are countless others that are also waiting for “the other shoe to drop”, and I believe that it could literally happen at any time.

But for now, we wait.

I would encourage you to enjoy these remaining days of summer while you still can.  This weekend, put some burgers on the grill and enjoy some time with your family.  Unfortunately, there are many Americans that are under such financial stress that it is hard to enjoy much of anything right now.  In fact, one recent survey found that 50 percent or more of the households in some of our largest cities are currently facing “serious financial problems”

There’s no question the coronavirus pandemic has forced many Americans into financial hardship, but a new NPR/Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey provided a clearer picture of the extent of the struggles in the United States’ four largest cities.

At least half of all households in those cities — 53 percent in New York City, 56 percent in Los Angeles, 50 percent in Chicago, and 63 percent in Houston — reported facing serious financial problems, including depleted savings, problems paying credit card bills, and affording medical bills.

How can that be possible if we are in the midst of a tremendous “recovery”?

Of course, the truth is that we aren’t in any sort of a recovery, but at least things are a whole lot better than they will be after the upcoming election.

I had such an ominous feeling coming into 2020, and I shared this repeatedly with my readers, and now I have such an ominous feeling about the rest of 2020 and beyond.

In particular, I am extremely concerned about what will happen in November.  No matter who is ultimately declared the winner, the other side is going to be convinced that the election was stolen from them and that is likely to throw our nation into a state of chaos.

And we are already being told that we probably will not know the winner until long after election day.  That period of uncertainty is almost certainly going to spark more civil unrest, and I believe that faith in the integrity of our elections will be greatly shaken.

Before I end this article, there is one more thing that I wanted to mention that I found to be extremely interesting.  This year the Federal Reserve has been buying up mortgage bonds worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and according to Mish Shedlock the Fed now owns nearly a third of that entire market…

  • The Fed has snapped up $1 trillion of mortgage bonds since March. It bought around $300 billion of the bonds in each of March and April, and since then has been buying about $100 billion a month.
  • The Fed now owns almost a third of bonds backed by home loans in the U.S.
  • Buying the securities has pushed mortgage rates lower, with the average 30-year rate falling to 2.91% as of last week from 3.3% in early February.
  • Morgan Stanley analysts pointed out in late March that the buying was running at eight times the pace seen in prior episodes of Fed purchasing under programs known as quantitative easing.

No matter who wins the election, the direction of the Fed is not going to change.  They are going to continue to engage in exceedingly reckless manipulation of the markets, and that is going to have very serious long-term implications.

All around us, we can see our society being thrown into convulsions as all of our systems begin to fail.

I know that so many of you out there are feeling the exact same way that I am.

A sense of anticipation hangs in the air, and millions of people are waiting for the next big crisis to erupt.

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need To Get Through Extreme Weather Emergencies

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

Generally speaking, the American lifestyle is largely dependent upon the power grid. And when the grid goes down during the hottest times of the year, our eyes are opened to the need to have essential off-grid preps on hand to survive.

A sweltering heat wave that has enveloped most parts of California causing a surge of demand on the power grid. During the hottest part of the day on Friday, energy companies made the decision to start rolling blackouts – something that has not been done for 20 years.

The heat wave is ramping up this weekend, and some areas could reach triple-digit record highs, weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles said, adding that the temperatures are more typical of mid-summer than August.

An excessive heat warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Friday through Tuesday, and the combination of heat and wildfires prompted air quality warnings as well.

Ozone pollution in some areas reached levels Friday afternoon not seen in 10 years, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Gonzales said several different factors would play into whether the rolling blackouts continue.

“We’re dealing with weather, clouds, wildfires … these are quickly evolving situations, quickly changing,” she told the AP.

The situation will be evaluated on a day to day basis, she said.

Many believed rolling blackouts were a thing of the past, but all that changed Friday when the lights went out on 350,000 thousand homes. Many were caught off guard and felt PG&E had not fully communicated the likelihood of this occurring. But the worst is yet to come as more rolling blackouts are planned for the coming week. Excessive heat warnings are forecasted through Wednesday for Central Valley, Delta, foothills, and mountains southwestern of Shasta County to western Colusa County.

With scorching temperatures forecasted in many parts of the country, it is important to know that certain preparedness items can provide safety and protection when you are off the grid during the hottest part of the year.

Priorities During a Blackout
  1. Safety concerns – Heat-related deaths are the number 1 weather-related killer in the United States. Therefore, when a rolling blackout occurs, make sure you find the coolest part of the home for the family to be in. Set up battery-operated box fans in essential rooms, provide flashlights if needed, drink lots of fluids, and monitor those who may be at risk for heat injuries. Here are some tips to stay cool during a rolling blackout. Many preparedness experts suggest always having at least a half a tank in gas and this is a perfect example why. If rolling blackouts last longer than intended and you are feeling that your health is becoming affected, go to your car and sit in the air conditioning to cool off.
  2. Securing food supply – The next priority is protecting your food supply during a power disruption. Keep in mind the season, and the geographic locale where you reside with regards to your food supply and food shopping. During a rolling blackout, minimize the opening of refrigerators and freezers. While most of your perishable food supply will keep for at least 24 more hours in the refrigerator be prepared to do what you can to save your food supply if your refrigerator and freezer cannot hold cold temperatures. As an added measure, add a thermometer to the refrigerator to monitor the temperature. If the temperatures start increasing above a certain point, plan to move the food into the freezer. In an article on the subject, Jeremiah Johnson makes some great suggestions on using up your perishable food supply.
  3. Protecting appliances from power surges – Generators are great to have around – especially if you find yourself in an off-grid situation! Those that are dependent on power for medical equipment are especially vulnerable during power outages. Portable or permanently installed standby generators provide a temporary source of power during emergency power outages. However, if you do not know how to use these tools properly, they can be dangerous. When plugging in appliances to generators pay careful attention to wattage allowed. Follow these safety tips to stay safe.

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need

If you have not done so already, take inventory of your light preparedness supplies, checking to see if batteries work and that you have extra supplies of batteries in case the blackout lasts longer than intended. Last year, I went through a similar circumstance and highlighted the preparedness items used and even the mistakes I made in my preparedness plans that needed to be improved on. Here is a list of the 10 essential blackout-proof supplies I used to get through my off-grid emergencies.

  1. Generator with gasoline
  2. Surge protector
  3. 2 battery-powered lanterns (for the communal areas in the home)
  4. Flashlights (1 for each family member)
  5. Battery-powered headlamp
  6. 24 Cyalume light sticks
  7. An assortment of candles
  8. Solar-powered battery charger
  9. Extra batteries
  10. Battery-powered fans 

Other alternative light considerations could be solar garden lights which can be charged outdoors and then brought in the evening to use.  Oil lamps are another lighting alternative and an added benefit to this is you can recycle used cooking oil or use rendered fat to power these. Also consider having a supply of long-burning candles, and solar-powered flashlights.

I hope this helps some of you better prepare for off-grid events. Please check out The Prepper’s Blueprint and 52-Weeks to Preparedness for more information on preparing.

control CORRUPTION Government Headline News illusion Intelwars left-right paradigm Lie Masters Morality Self-ownership SLAVERY The Matrix the system United States wake up

Most Americans Think The Government Is CORRUPT

Americans may finally be waking up, even minimally. A majority of those living in the United States believe that the government is corrupt and unaccountable.

This brings to mind a quote:

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. -John Dahlberg Acton

That means that anytime you hand power to anyone, their morality will decrease as the desire to control others increases. No one cedes power willingly either. If we have learned anything from 2020 it’s that those in power or authority figures are not in it for us, but themselves.

Seventy-three percent of Americans say that elected officials do not face “serious consequences” for misconduct, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. A closer look reveals that a mere 21 percent of those leaning Democrat and 32 percent of Republicans believe there is some basic justice for delinquent politicians. This is not the only issue where US liberals and conservatives almost reach a consensus.

Seventy percent of US citizens don’t think the government is “open and transparent,” while 60 percent of both Republicans and Democrats believe that judges aren’t free from the influence of parties and politicians. RT

However, Americans still think reform is the answer. It’s not. Not allowing others to have power over you is the answer. That means once the system falls (and it will) we replace it with nothing. No more masters and no more slaves.  The good news though, is that some Americans are at least finally understanding that corruption is inevitable in every government under any “established rule” over others.

It’s time to figure it out. In fact, it’s past time. We all need to stand up, unite, and stop allowing other people to steal from us, dictate to us, start wars, and use order followers to enforce the “laws.” We don’t need them. They need us. Once we withdraw our consent to be governed (which means controlled) it’s over. We are not their property or their slaves. We all need to realize this quickly.

accuracy Emergency Preparedness Headline News ICMB Intelwars mass destruction Minuteman III missile Missiles Northrop Grumman nuclear arsenal nuclear options Pentagon United States

The Pentagon Awards Contract To Northrop Grumman To “Beef Up” Nuclear Weapons

The United States is spending $85 billion to upgrade its nuclear arsenal. The Pentagon has handed arms manufacturer Northrop Grumman a colossal $13.3 billion contract to develop a new ICBM to replace the Minuteman III missile.

What else does 2020 having in store for us? It is difficult to say, but one thing is for sure, the United States is going to be spending a lot of money to update weapons of mass destruction. This “beefing up” of nuclear weapons is part of a sweeping modernization effort to update the U.S.’ nuclear triad.

The new long-range missile, according to the Air Force, “will have increased accuracy, enhanced security, and improved reliability to provide the United States with an upgraded and broader array of strategic nuclear options.” It is expected to be in operation by 2029 and could ultimately cost up to $85 billion.

Though Boeing also vied for the contract, it dropped from the bidding in July after Northrop’s acquisition of Orbital ATK, a solid rocket motor manufacturer, one of only two US-based suppliers for that type of motor. Boeing argued the other supplier was not suitable for the GBSD project, and that the Northrop-owned company dragged its feet in price negotiations, claiming Northrop had an “unfair advantage.” The Air Force refused to act on Boeing’s complaints, however, and the firm withdrew its bid. –RT

President Donald Trump has embraced the nuclear initiative with open arms, even approving greater spending for the project in the 2021 budget. In addition to replacing the Minuteman III, whose first variant was put into service in 1970, the military is also working to revamp the other two legs of the U.S. nuclear triad, including upgrades for its nuclear-capable aircraft and submarines.

Of course, we know the government and elitists have weapons that we don’t know about.  The development of a new ICBM comes as part of a massive nuclear modernization scheme instituted under former President Barack Obama, initially set to cost $1 trillion and span three decades.

Stay aware and alert. Know this is going on. Be prepared. Times are strange, to say the least, and the timing of this feels “off” at best.

9 11 China Coronavirus cost COVID-19 current crisis Debt Donald Trump dystopia Economy Emergency Preparedness expansion of power experts Federal Reserve Forecasting freedom Government gullible Headline News Intelwars Japan liberty matrix Pentagon plandemic Police State scamdemic Social Security system taxpayer expense tyranny United States

Since 9/11, the Government’s Answer to Every Problem Has Been More Government

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

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”—Anonymous

Have you noticed that the government’s answer to every problem is more government—at taxpayer expense—and less individual liberty?

The Great Depression. The World Wars. The 9/11 terror attacks. The COVID-19 pandemic.

Every crisis—manufactured or otherwise—since the nation’s early beginnings has become a make-work opportunity for the government to expand its reach and its power at taxpayer expense while limiting our freedoms at every turn.

Indeed, the history of the United States is a testament to the old adage that liberty decreases as government (and government bureaucracy) grows. To put it another way, as government expands, liberty contracts.

To the police state, this COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge boon, like winning the biggest jackpot in the lottery. Certainly, it will prove to be a windfall for those who profit from government expenditures and expansions.

Given the rate at which the government has been devising new ways to spend our money and establish itself as the “solution” to all of our worldly problems, this current crisis will most likely end up ushering in the largest expansion of government power since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

This is how the emergency state operates, after all.

From 9/11 to COVID-19, “we the people” have acted the part of the helpless, gullible victims desperately in need of the government to save us from whatever danger threatens. In turn, the government has been all too accommodating and eager while also expanding its power and authority in the so-called name of national security.

As chief correspondent Dan Balz asks for The Washington Post, “Government is everywhere now. Where does it go next?

When it comes to the power players that call the shots, there is no end to their voracious appetite for more: more money, more power, more control.

This expansion of government power is also increasing our federal debt in unprecedented leaps and bounds. Yet the government isn’t just borrowing outrageous amounts of money to keep the country afloat. It’s also borrowing indecent sums to pay for programs it can’t afford.

The government’s primary response to this COVID-19 pandemic—flooding the market with borrowed money in the amount of trillions of dollars for stimulus payments, unemployment insurance expansions, and loans to prop up small businesses and to keep big companies afloat—has pushed the country even deeper in debt.

By “the country,” I really mean the taxpayers. And by “the taxpayers,” it’s really future generations who will be shackled to debt loads they may never be able to pay back.

This is how you impoverish the future.

Democrats and Republicans alike have done this.

Without fail, every president within the last 50 years has expanded the nation’s debt. When President Trump took office on January 20, 2017, the national debt—the amount the federal government has borrowed over the years and must pay back—was a whopping $19.9 trillion. Despite Trump’s pledge to drain the swamp and eliminate the debt, the federal debt is now approaching $27 trillion and is on track to surpass $78 trillion by 2028.

For many years now, economists have warned that economic collapse would be inevitable if the national debt ever surpassed the size of the U.S. economy. The government passed that point in June 2020 and has yet to put the brakes on its spending.

In fact, the Federal Reserve just keeps printing more money in order to prop up the economy and float the debt.

At some point, something’s got to give.

As it now stands, the U.S. is among the most indebted countries in the world.

Almost a third of the $27 trillion national debt is owed to foreign entities such as Japan and China.

Most of the debt, however, is owed to the public.

How is this even possible? Essentially, it’s a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

First, the government requires taxpayers to pay a portion of their salaries to the Social Security Trust Fund. The government then turns around and borrows from Social Security to cover its spending needs. Then the government raises taxes or prints more money in order to pay out whatever is needed to the retirees.

It’s a form of convoluted economics that only makes sense to government bureaucrats looking to make a profit off the backs of the taxpayers.

According to the U.S. Debt Clock, each taxpayer’s share of the national debt is $214,000 and growing.

That’s almost five times more than the median income for what Americans earn in a year. That’s also almost five times more than the average American has in savings, across savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, call deposit accounts, and prepaid cards. Almost 60% of Americans are so financially strapped that they don’t have even $500 in savings and nothing whatsoever put away for retirement.

Just the interest that must be paid on the national debt every year is $338 billion and growing. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the fastest-growing item in the budget over the next decade will be interest on the debt.

As the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget reported in 2019, before COVID spending pushed the country over the fiscal cliff, “Interest payments will rise from $325 billion last year to $928 billion by 2029, a nearly threefold increase. If tax cuts and spending increases are extended, interest will exceed $1 trillion and set a new record as a share of the economy. The federal government will spend more on interest than on Medicaid or children by 2020. By 2024, interest will match defense spending.

Bottom line: The U.S. government—and that includes the current administration—is spending money it doesn’t have on programs it can’t afford, and “we the taxpayers” are the ones who will have to pay for it.

As financial analyst Kristin Tate explains, “When the government has its debt bill come due, all of us will be on the hook.”

Despite the tax burden “we the people” are made to bear, we have no real say in how the government runs, or how our taxpayer funds are used, but we’re being forced to pay through the nose, anyhow.

We have no real say, but that doesn’t prevent the government from fleecing us at every turn and forcing us to pay for endless wars that do more to fund the military-industrial complex than protect us, pork-barrel projects that produce little to nothing, and a police state that serves only to imprison us within its walls.

All the while the government continues to do whatever it wants—levy taxes, rack up debt, spend outrageously and irresponsibly—with little thought for the plight of its citizens.

This brings me to a curious point: what the future will look like ten years from now when the federal debt is expected to surpass $78 trillion, an unsustainable level of debt that will result in unprecedented economic hardship for anyone that does not belong to the wealthy elite.

Interestingly enough, that timeline coincides with the government’s vision of the future as depicted in a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command.

According to the video, the government is anticipating trouble (read: civil unrest), which is code for anything that challenges the government’s authority, wealth, and power, and is grooming its armed forces (including its heavily armed federal agents) accordingly to solve future domestic political and social problems.

The training video, titled “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” is only five minutes long, but it 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.

And then comes the kicker.

Three-and-a-half minutes into the Pentagon’s dystopian vision of “a world of Robert Kaplan-esque urban hellscapes — brutal and anarchic supercities filled with gangs of youth-gone-wild, a restive underclass, criminal syndicates, and bands of malicious hackers,” the ominous voice of the narrator speaks of a need to “drain the swamps.”

Drain the swamps.

Surely, we’ve heard that phrase before?

Ah yes.

Emblazoned on t-shirts and signs, shouted at rallies, and used as a rallying cry among Trump supporters, “drain the swamp” became one of Donald Trump’s most-used campaign slogans.

Far from draining the politically corrupt swamps of Washington DC of lobbyists and special interest groups, however, the Trump Administration has further mired us in a sweltering bog of corruption and self-serving tactics.

Funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Now the government has adopted its own plans for swamp-draining, only it wants to use the military to drain the swamps of futuristic urban American cities of “noncombatants and engage the remaining adversaries in high-intensity conflict within.”

And who are these noncombatants, a military term that refers to civilians who are not engaged in fighting during a war?

They are, according to the Pentagon, “adversaries.”

They are “threats.”

They are the “enemy.”

They are people who don’t support the government, people who live in fast-growing urban communities, people who may be less well-off economically than the government and corporate elite, people who engage in protests, people who are unemployed, people who engage in crime (in keeping with the government’s fast-growing, overly broad definition of what constitutes a crime).

In other words, in the eyes of the U.S. military, noncombatants are American citizens a.k.a. domestic extremists a.k.a. enemy combatants who must be identified, targeted, detained, contained and, if necessary, eliminated.

Funny how closely fact tracks fiction these days.

Just recently, in fact, I re-watched Escape from L.A.John Carpenter’s 1996 post-apocalyptic action film that imagines a future (2013, in fact) in which the United States has elected a president for life who runs the country according to his own theocratic moral law. Anyone who runs afoul of the president’s moral laws is stripped of their citizenship and either electrocuted or deported to the island of Los Angeles, a penal colony where lawlessness reigns supreme.

As the film’s opening narrator recounts:

In the late 20th century, hostile forces inside the United States grow strong. The city of Los Angeles is ravaged by crime and immorality. To protect and defend its citizens, the United States Police Force is formed. A presidential candidate predicts a millennium earthquake will destroy L.A. in divine retribution. The earthquake measuring 9.6 on the Richter scale hits at 12:59 P.M. August 23rd in the year 2000. After the devastation, the Constitution is amended, and the newly elected president accepts a lifetime term of office. The country’s capital is moved from Washington, D.C., to the president’s hometown of Lynchburg, Virginia. Los Angeles Island is declared no longer part of the United States and becomes the deportation point for all people found undesirable or unfit to live in the new, moral America. The United States Police Force, like an army, is encamped among the shorelines, making any escape from L.A. impossible. From the southeastern hills of Orange County to the northwestern shore of Malibu, the great wall excludes L.A. from the mainland. The president’s first act as permanent Commander in Chief is Directive 17: once an American loses his or her citizenship, they are deported to this island of the damned, and they never come back.

Carpenter is a brilliant filmmaker whose dystopian visions of the future are eerily prescient, but this film is particularly unnerving: environmental disasters; engineered viruses used like weapons to control the masses; riots and looting that leave the populace longing for law and order; religion used as a weapon; martial law; surveillance that keeps every citizen under the government’s watchful eye; and a growing awareness that the only path to freedom left for humanity is to shut down the government and start over again.

We’re almost there now.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, unless we make some effort to reject the sorry excuse for a representative government that we have been saddled with, the future that awaits us—whether it’s the future envisioned by the Pentagon in its training video or the future imagined by Carpenter—will be a living nightmare from which there is no escape.

Bonds cash Dollars drops election fiat currency Gold Headline News Intelwars liars marekt rally money Politicians propaganda Silver things are bad United States value

THIS IS SICKENING!

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

There’s much that Americans CAN’T AGREE ON, but one thing is for sure: when it comes to spending money that ISN’T THEIRS by creating more currency out of THIN AIR, most fall in line and share the view that MORE SHOULD COME!

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Do you understand that the markets are ACTUALLY RALLYING because things are bad?

Here’s the rationale: the economy is shrinking, unemployment rates are SKY-HIGH, the elections are coming, and politicians will treat EVERY DAY like it’s Christmas, so markets must go up.

In fact, August 2020 was the S&P 500’s BEST AUGUST in 26 years! The problem is that the Volatility Index is rising along with it in tandem. This ONLY OCCURS before big pullbacks.

This isn’t the only MARKET RARITY of August 2020. Along with the VIX rising with stocks, August saw the markets BEAT BONDS by the greatest amount in nine years!

Cash has simply been a POOR CHOICE for an investor since March; as you’ll see below, SILVER is the best-performing major asset in 2020:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Silver’s beating gold, and even the NASDAQ 100 composite in August and throughout 2020.

The gold/silver ratio is now the lowest it’s been since MARCH 2017!

You’ll remember that we called the bottom on it when it hit 120:1, and WE’VE BEEN SO RIGHT. With the index now at 69:1, I expect the gap to close EVEN MORE.

The main reason for this rally is that the U.S. dollar has gone from OVERBOUGHT in March to NOT OVERBOUGHT today, but anyone who tells you that the dollar is losing its supremacy or that the world is LOSING FAITH in it is being premature or disingenuous.

For lack of an alternative right now, the dollar is still the king of fiat currencies.

As you can see above, since peaking on the 5th of August, gold has traded down and THEN FLAT, yet real rates have resumed their downtrend. They’ve gone back to -1.09%, which CAUSED GOLD to reach its all-time high, so I’m BULLISH AGAIN!

In fact, I’m constructing a WELL-DIVERSIFIED gold, silver, and base metal stock portfolio, which I’ll publish NEXT WEEK.

In our company’s history, we’ve never done anything QUITE LIKE THIS.

The portfolio will be in the form of a special PDF report and the aim is to give you a POINT OF REFERENCE so you can conduct your own due diligence.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com, SentimenTrader.com (amazing charts)

As you can see, sitting at home and TRADING STOCKS ALL DAY seems to be the pastime of the millennial generation. They need to prepare themselves to GET WHACKED by the professionals, which won’t be able to resist selling since prices have just GONE PARABOLIC, with TSLA up 75% in August alone, for instance.

I know for a fact that the world’s top investors are DISGUSTED WITH this bubble and that they’re pursuing creative and alternative ways of buying value and generating returns.

Unless this recovery HAS LEGS in the real economy, these options traders are about to learn A VALUABLE LESSON; greed must be contained – OR ELSE!

Apple blind obedience to the state Central Banks Conspiracy Fact and Theory contested election crash Donald Trump elections Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting free markets Gold Headline News high alert Intelwars Joe Biden maniacs portfolio Silver stimulus stock markets ugly United States

WARNING: YOU’VE ENTERED A TERRIFYING STAGE!

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

Between now and elections, I’d like to request that you remain on HIGH ALERT. The United States isn’t the fairytale land of opportunity that Hollywood films of the 1990s sold the world on; it’s a VERY COMPLEX country, with many ulterior motives going on behind the scenes.

One can really get caught IN THE CROSSFIRE and end up becoming a pawn in SOMEONE ELSE’S game. Right now, that theatre is the elections and it’s played on the GRANDEST of SCALES.

The soul of this country is what’s AT STAKE and that’s a fight that NEITHER SIDE is willing to lose without taking the ship down WITH IT.

You’ll see trash dug up about Biden’s and Trump’s pasts; any SKELETONS they have will be exhumed. It’s going to get STREET-UGLY!

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The reason that markets ARE CHEERING ON blindly to these insane valuations is because, FUNNY ENOUGH, the economy isn’t recovering quickly, so more stimulus IS EXPECTED.

The Federal Reserve has essentially formed a partnership with investors and it’s acting in a way THAT ENCOURAGES risky behavior.

It’s a fair assessment of the situation to realize that this generation of new investors, which are at present TRADING LIKE MANIACS, do not yet realize what risk/reward is in a FREE MARKET, where the central bank is not manipulating prices.

Since the MARCH CRASH, what has been their experience, after all?

  1. The dollar has gone down for FIVE MONTHS in a row, so that confirms their notion that printing is debasement of currency. 
  2. Silver was the top-performer for the 2nd month in a row, up 15.4%. In 2020, silver is up JUST OVER +55% and gold hit an all-time high in early August, so that’s FURTHER CONFIRMATION that central banks are creating too much liquidity.
  3. Apple Inc.’s market cap is now BIGGER THAN all of the Russell 2000 index:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

They keep chanting that STOCKS ONLY GO UP, and are actually seeing the so-called evidence of this in REAL LIFE, so you can readily understand the type of THINKING BUBBLE these traders are in. In their minds, this market is heaven and they’re there to enjoy the fruits.

In contrast with this stock market mania, gold stocks FOLLOWED CLOSELY in the footsteps of gold and have not yet recovered from the August 5th all-time high for spot gold prices. That day, the gold stock group of companies ALSO TOPPED.

The way we see it, this UPCOMING EARNINGS SEASON will highlight just how robust this industry has become and next week could be one of the best POSITIONING OPPORTUNITIES we get in 2020.

In light of this, we’ve been finalizing an INCREDIBLE PROJECT; it is our FIRST-EVER fully-diversified portfolio of natural resource companies:

  1. It includes a silver company, which is still 50% below its 2016 HIGH!
  2. A gold miner, which is in a league of its own.
  3. A NEW gold producer!
  4. A company that we’ve profiled in the past which is up AS MUCH AS 900% in 2020!

This upcoming Sunday and Monday, we’ll be publishing THE FULL REPORT!

Bonds Businesses Commodities Dow Jones Industrial Average Economy experts Forecasting Gold Government Treasury Headline News Intelwars lose income NASDA Precious Metals risk factor S&P 500 safe havens Silver Stock Market United States

I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS BULLSHIT!

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

On Sunday, I wrote the first of two WARNING ALERTS about the stock market. Today, I am publishing the second one. My message boils down to this: as of right now, the S&P 500, the NASDAQ 100, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average are EXPENSIVE.

The chief reason for this is the LACK OF VIABLE ALTERNATIVES for generating returns in a ZERO-RATE world.

This is factored in, but some people still SHAKE THEIR HEADS in disbelief regarding how much the markets have extended themselves, so here’s some perspective as to how much more expensive GOVERNMENT BONDS are than stocks:

  1. A 10-year U.S. Government Treasury bond is GUARANTEED to lose income since it yields 0.65%. As a whole, the G-10 governments offer less than 2%. On the flip-side, the S&P 500 has a P/E ratio of 27, which implies an earnings yield of 3.7% (100/27). Add the dividend yield of 1.7% and the “lack of judgment” on the part of investors becomes clear: STOCKS are better than BONDS. It’s not even a question. Given the choice, I’d buy an index fund over a bond any day of the week.

 

  1. The RISK FACTOR with bonds and stocks has changed. Bonds used to be looked at as ULTIMATE SAFE HAVENS, but fewer and fewer people ASCRIBE A PREMIUM to a government than to the world’s best businesses.

Can anyone really say that they are more concerned about the future prospect of a company like Google or Starbucks than with Washington? To me, the safety that some companies have in their brand’s loyalty is bulletproof.

Some businesses are bigger, better, and more resilient than most of the world’s treasury departments.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

But, as much as I think that a basket of high-quality stocks are more attractive than bonds, I also have to say that GOLD STOCKS beat the traditional equities right now!

No matter how I spin it around, I love the resource sector’s health, strength, corporate behavior, and I MOST LOVE the fact that the product it sells is in HIGH DEMAND and its price is in a bull market.

Since June 2019, this newsletter has profiled more than TEN OPPORTUNITIES that have doubled in price or more. One company is up close to 400% and another is close to 300%, yet I feel that it isn’t the end of this.

In September, some of this EUPHORIA MODE with retail investors will die off.

No one knows how SEVERE IT will be, but any LOSS OF MOMENTUM would immediately shine a light on gold again.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you know, Warren Buffett is buying stocks, so he clearly knows that he can’t KEEP WAITING for lower valuations like in the last few decades because we live in a DIFFERENT REALITY.

The point is that stocks do look more attractive than bonds, but the resource sector is the MOST UNDERVALUED within the major industrial sectors.

Any weakness exhibited by the S&P 500 will serve as a MIRROR OF CONTRAST to how good gold companies have managed their BALANCE SHEETS.

Don’t struggle with why stocks are so richly valued as an index:

  1. Either act as a STOCK PICKER, focusing solely on those that offer good value, OR
  2. Step outside of the general equities and look at the value in the resource sector!

When gold SURGES ABOVE $2,000/ounce again, this sector will ERUPT!

GOLD $2,134: CAN’T GET ANY MORE OBVIOUS!

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

We wrote last week that gold stocks PEAKED on the 5th of August. Right after that, we saw a flood of INBOUND INQUIRIES, so let me clarify that our message is not that they hit a top and are now moving towards a bear market, but that they’re PULLING BACK, churning and gathering momentum for their next move!

The case for gold stocks is REALLY LEGITIMATE today, even for mainstream investors, shown best by Berkshire Hathaway’s ENTRANCE INTO the sector.

What are they seeing?

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com, Crescat Capital LLC (great charts)

The S&P 500 companies are STILL GROWING, even in these uncertain economic times, but the RISK/REWARD isn’t appealing, as you can see above.

I want to recap the important factors to consider going forward, as the plethora of equities clearly doesn’t OFFER TOO MANY BARGAINS, as we speak.

A. The Wilshire 5000, an index that is far bigger than the S&P 500, since it shows a clearer picture of 10 times the amount of companies, has reached the milestone of NEARLY TWO-TIMES the U.S. GDP!

That has never happened before. In fact, it was only in 2012 that it reached 100% of GDP, so prices of equities have SKYROCKETED. This is testament that multinational companies, which are global, boost the GDP of other countries, at the expense of The United States’ and that’s part of the reason for the deficits.

B. S&P 500 alone is worth nearly 1.5 times the GDP of the United States

C. Still, with 8 in 10 Chief Financial Officers indicating that they believe markets are overvalued, the contrarian move is still to BE INVESTED, rather than have everything you got in cash.

Fear is largely over-hyped; the pandemic is A FRACTION of what it was presumed to be, medically speaking, so the PARALYZED CASH POSITION might not be your best course of action.

As you know, our stock profile opportunities have delivered INDEX-BEATING returns and I’d love to see the streak continue.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

When the VIX is GOING UP, at the same time as the index is hitting ALL-TIME highs, the result has been a CORRECTION every single time, so as I warned this past Sunday, don’t expect a RAGING BULL this month.

September is already the most volatile month of the year, historically, with an AVERAGE NEGATIVE return.

On the other hand, gold is going to enjoy SO MANY tailwind catalysts, as we approach the elections; the uncertain political outcome, coupled with the NEW INFLATION TARGETING process that the Federal Reserve has announced, will play a major role in making gold surpass $2,000/ounce again.

Gold stocks, which peaked one month ago, will SOAR BACK and you can already see the uptrend developing:

The top is noticeable, as well as the bottom. We’ll need to see a BREAKOUT ABOVE $64.05 and it’s off to the races.

I’m looking at some stats that leave NO ROOM for doubt; the bull market is very strong and the MANAGEMENT TEAMS are acting very responsibly.

The bull is BACK and we’ve uncovered a BRAND-NEW company, which has some features that lead us to believe that it could be added to the HALL OF FAME of gold stocks, if it pulls off its goals in the next twelve months.

The numbers we looked at were so DELICIOUS that we stopped all other tasks to make sure we gather all available data for you on it.

Expect a MAJOR UPDATE from us in the COMING DAYS!

Americans banker puppet chaos Commodities dollar crash Dollar Destruction Donald Trump Doug Casey economic elections Emergency Preparedness experts Federal Reserve fiat currency Financial Forecasting Headline News Indoctrination Intelwars left-right paradigm livelihoods lives Money Creation nasty and chaotic Precious Metals Silver Social Stocks United States Youtube

Think It’s Bad Now? “It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins, The Dollar Is Going To Be DESTROYED!”

In an interview with SGT Report, Doug Casey explains that we’re in the midst of the “greater depression” and the real chaos, both societal and economic, is dead ahead.  If we think things are bad now, just wait until after the election, because “it doesn’t matter who wins, the dollar is going to be destroyed!”

Most of our readers already understand the dollar is being destroyed and it’s being done on purpose by the Federal Reserve to bring on their new fully centralized, unbacked, digital dollar, which will be a system of complete control and enslavement. When the dollar finally falls for good, things will get so chaotic, it’ll be unimaginable. Casey says we’ll see financial chaos, economic chaos, and societal chaos.

This is not a matter of if the dollar will crash, but a matter of when, it won’t make any difference who is chosen to be the next banker puppet (president) when that finally happens.

Casey says that gold is still one of the best ways to protect your wealth.  Preparedness will help you get through the chaos of a destroyed dollar.  Most people won’t know what’s coming, but those who have precious metals will have a better chance of getting through.  Silver is a “high tech industrial element” and could end up being in high demand.  Casey predicts silver will of over $50 per ounce.

These next few years are going to be chaotic.  But you can try to become as wealthy as you can to insulate yourself from the chaos. Casey says old and silver are the best way to do that.

SGT Report asks Casey about the democrats destroying the dollar and Donald Trump swooping in as a savior and returning us to sound money. Casey says: “Well, I wouldn’t plan my life around Trump doing anything that’s terribly intelligent economically, although I very much appreciate his efforts to deregulate the economy and fighting against the deep state.”  Casey then says he doesn’t necessarily think Trump will win.

As we’ve stated before, presidents are chosen, and if Trump can give the Federal Reserve what they want, and as long as he won’t stand in the way of their destruction of the current system as we know it,  he will be reelected. The economy is going to get much worse by the time the election comes, and that will weih heavily on voters.

Both sides will be cheating, and “I’d gear up for stormy weather,” says Casey of these times leading up to election.

benjamin franklin Election season Emergency Preparedness experts extremists Forecasting Gold Headline News highly violent Intelwars Preparedness Society United States Volatility

SEPTEMBER 2020: Prepare For HELL ON EARTH!

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

August is DRAWING TO A CLOSE and the focus of the whole world is going to be on how the United States readies for a HIGHLY VIOLENT (both verbally and physically) election season.

Benjamin Franklin, who had a lot to do with the formation of the country, said that failing to prepare is preparing to fail, so I want to go over some of the things you ought to KEEP IN MIND as we enter an extremely important period for our global village.

  1. Media Editorial Priorities: Do not FALL PREY to the trap that mainstream outlets are setting up for you!

Don’t hate the media; their MORAL COMPASS has misdirected them and they’ll have to pay for the reality that they PORTRAY TO THE MASSES, which attempts to only present the things that divide us, not bring us together.

Know that the media is going to HAMMER THE NATION with innumerable cases of the extremists in our society, and that will act as a SNOWBALL, fueling even more division.

Remember that the overwhelming majority of people aren’t on the fringes and they are rightly guided by tolerance, compassion, patience, and kindness. These are considered to be “boring” and aren’t broadcasted.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see above, the DXY index is already trading at a 27-month low because since the last FIVE MONTHS have seen the equity markets rally LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

The perception of reality is radically different from one person to another, and it’s THIS EXACT UNCERTAINTY that the media will exploit.

  1. Inequality Making People TOTALLY FRUSTRATED: Riots and protests are now BEING LEGITIMIZED. Because unemployment rates are so high, people are susceptible to all sorts of ideas, some of which are VIOLENT AND DANGEROUS.

It’s admitted by the Federal Reserve and by practically every wealthy individual that the response of the central bank and the way the recovery has been happening UP UNTIL NOW has only favored the rich!

Therefore, with tens of millions of people that think their voices aren’t heard, the potential that riots will be more frequent and bigger than ever before IS ALIVE AND WELL.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

I don’t have to tell you how HISTORICALLY-EXPENSIVE markets have become, mostly due to ever-lower interest rates on bonds, both governmental and corporate (even junk), along with never-ending INJECTIONS OF LIQUIDITY!

There’s also a widespread trend of day trading and blogging about stocks by influencers. This is attracting millions of new investors into the markets and it’s all part of a bigger theme, which is to CAPTURE, record and share EVERYTHING we do and blast it online for the world to see.

  1. Body Cameras and Injustice Documentation: If it seems to you that the world is GOING TO THE SHITTERS, it’s because social media and RAW HUMAN emotion are much more attracted to the sensationally-negative than to the more overwhelmingly common positive.

George Floyd is hardly the FIRST CASE of police brutality towards minorities. I mean, if anyone saw a DAILY FEED of the atrocities of WW2, it would have ended much earlier.

If TENS OF MILLIONS got a daily glimpse of what poverty is like in Africa, they would sign up for the cause, not stay silent.

Once something is visual, it sits in your memory and penetrates your consciousness.

We will witness many more of these GRAPHICALLY-VISUAL stories.

What’s the bottom line? VOLATILITY!

When you have the world’s MOST SEASONED hedge fund managers, with hundreds of employees with super-computers looking at this data and not understanding how markets can behave in this way, they will SWITCH TO GOLD – and they already are.

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

As you can see, that 3% mark for inflation is CRUCIAL FOR GOLD!

Inflation is currently about half of that and gold is STILL trading within a short range of its all-time high from a couple of weeks ago.

Gold has a partnership with me; whenever I’m tempted to GET OVERLY BULLISH, it serves as a voice of reason.

When in doubt, own more precious metals, it says to me.

September and October are going to be wild.

acquiescing agenda Australia authoritarianism Bill Clinton chaos Civil Liberties democracy is a scam division dog and pony show Donald Trump elections are selections elites Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting freedom Globalists Government H.G. Wells Hillary Clinton independence Intelwars law scams liberty advocates mind control muzzles New World Order peace plandemic Police State political theater power never concedes puppets ruling class scamdemic Socialism Society sovereignty Strobe Talbot Thomas Jefferson tyranny United States voluntaryism

The Totalitarian Future Globalists Want For The Entire World Is Being Revealed

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

All over the Western world ever since 9/11 there have been incremental steps towards what many liberty advocates would call a “police state”; a system in which governments are no longer restricted by the boundaries of civil liberties and are given the power to do just about anything they want in the name of public safety. The use of “the law” as a tool for injecting tyranny into a culture is the first tactic of all totalitarians.

The idea is that by simply writing government criminality into the law books, that criminality somehow becomes justified by virtue of legal recognition. It’s all very circular. Whenever government abuse of the people is initiated, it’s always initiated in the name of what’s “best for society as a whole”. To save society, the individuals that make up a society must be sublimated or destroyed. This mentality is the complete opposite of what the Founding Fathers in America fought and died for, but as Thomas Jefferson once said:

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

In countries like Australia, which claim to value Western democratic principles of liberty and rule by the people, the perception is that civil rights are codified into the legal framework just as they are in the US. However, there are some glaring differences and issues; specifically, Australian citizens (like many European citizens) have absolutely no means to compel their government or the elites that influence their government to limit themselves. It is these nations, in which the populations have been mostly disarmed and pacified, that any agenda for tyranny will first be established. But we will get to that in a moment…

Make no mistake, there is a very OPEN and easily identifiable agenda on the part of globalists to establish a heavily centralized police state system in every country they are able. This is not “conspiracy theory”, this is a conspiracy fact.

For many years now there have been numerous analysts, economists, and geopolitical experts in the alternative media that have predicted and warned the public about the globalist strategy of “order out of chaos”. In other words, the ultra-wealthy power brokers that hold influence over most governments on Earth seek to “reshape” the existing social order through the creation of crisis and disaster. By engineering public desperation, they hope to lure us into accepting restrictions on our freedoms that we would have never considered otherwise.

The goal of a single global economy and government has been spoken of by elites time and time again, yet it is still to this day called “conspiracy theory” or “paranoid delusion”. I could quote these elites and their organizations all day long, but I’ll cite a few choice statements to make my point.

As former Deputy Secretary of State under Clinton and Council on Foreign Relations member Strobe Talbot wrote in an article for Time Magazine in 1992 titled ‘America Abroad: The Birth Of The Global Nation’:

In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”

As elitist and Fabian Socialist HG Wells outlines in his non-fiction treatise titled ‘The New World Order’:

“…When the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”

And how about one of my favorite revealing quotes from Trilateral Commission member Richard N. Gardner, former deputy assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations under Kennedy and Johnson? He wrote in the April 1974 issue of the Council on Foreign Relation’s (CFR) journal Foreign Affairs (pg. 558) in an article titled ‘The Hard Road To World Order’:

In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end-run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”

Members of globalist foundations and think-tanks like the CFR have inhabited nearly every US government office and presidential cabinet for the past several decades. This includes the two dozen or so CFR members in Donald Trump’s cabinet.  Draining the swamp? Not going to happen.

As Harpers Magazine candidly revealed in a 1958 expose titled ‘School For Statesmen’:

“The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in common, they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for “the purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government.”

The easiest method for the globalists to get what they openly say they want is to either conjure a crisis or exploit an existing crisis in order to “erode sovereignty”. The current pandemic fits this plan perfectly, but before sovereignty can be eliminated on a national level they need to undermine sovereignty on an individual level first.

Actions within the US and nations allied to the US suggest an accelerated attack on personal liberties is at hand.

There are sister foundations to the CFR in many other countries. For example, in Australia they have the highly embedded and influential Strategic Policy Institute, which has been consistently advocating for complete centralization of government power in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Their stated plan is to concentrate policy administration in the hands of a new “commission” or “department” made up of the “brightest minds”. This commission would not be tasked with getting Australia back to normal, but convincing the public to ACCEPT the “new normal” beyond the pandemic.

The ASPI enthusiastically heralds the idea in an article titled ‘Coronavirus Response A Chance To Reimagine Future For Australia’:

The agenda of such a department now is not about getting Australia back to normal after the pandemic. It’s about re-imagining what Australia can be and how we can thrive and prosper in our future beyond the coronavirus and in light of the drought, bushfires, and climate change. Think about the kind of new economy we can have after the forced, rapid adoption of dispersed home working and schooling through digital means. We can be the leading digital economy the prime minister desired before the pandemic, not by 2030 but much earlier.”

This reminds me immediately of the post 9/11 push to rapidly remove constitutional protections while the public was blinded by fear and confusion.  As US globalist Rahm Emanuel would say:

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

The ASPI reveals the true agenda, which is the complete federalization and unilateral implementation of law without public approval. The plan is to do this by exploiting the pandemic event to its full potential and then applying the rapid societal changes in government structure. This will then be carried on long after the coronavirus disappears in the name of the economy, welfare programs, and so-called “global warming”. The pandemic response is just a means to an end, and the end game is the total dominance of the population.

I focus on Australia and the surrounding regions in particular because this seems to be the place where globalists are enforcing technocratic policies first. Or at the very least, they are test-running their strategy and using Australians as guinea pigs. When the ASPI says they plan to keep the pandemic changes in place well after the virus is gone, they aren’t just talking about shifting into a digital economy.

Right now, Australia and New Zealand are slamming citizens with perhaps the most draconian measures yet in the Western world. These are policies that the elites want to introduce everywhere, but they are going full bore in Australia, and it just keeps getting worse.

In various areas of Australia, “Level 4” response measures have been enforced for at least the next six weeks, including curfews, strict mask policies including people being forced to wear masks OUTSIDE (contrary to everything science and virology has to say about the low possibility of transmission in sunlight and open-air), residents are not allowed to travel more than 3 miles from their homes and only one person from a household is allowed to leave at any given time. Citizens violating these rules are subject to $10,000 fines or arrest. And yes, people are being arrested simply for not wearing a mask or being too far from home.

In New Zealand, the situation has become exceedingly grim and I think it should be treated as a warning to Americans specifically as to our potential future if we allow the narrative of “public health security” to be turned into a vehicle for tyranny.

While Australia has been using quarantine facilities to force people considered high risk to isolate, NZ quarantine camps are now fully under the control of the military, and ALL citizens that test positive or are suspected to have COVID can be separated from their families and placed in the camps, which are hotels converted into prisons.

It is the complete erasure of personal liberties all because of an increase in cases which has amounted to a mere 525 deaths in Australia and 22 deaths in New Zealand.

I believe the reason Australia and New Zealand have been targeted with this level of restrictions first is because they have been almost fully disarmed and have no means to defend themselves from government overstep. That said, I see signs that similar measures will be attempted in the US as well. In states like New York, there are low key programs to set up COVID checkpoints stopping and checking vehicles coming into the state. This is where heavier restrictions start.

First, checkpoints will be established in the name of keeping infected people out of a state or city. Then, those same checkpoints will be used to keep people from leaving a state or city. Then, checkpoints will be set up at random to test people for fever or symptoms of illness. If allowed to continue, the natural progression of checkpoints is to terrify the population into not traveling anywhere for any reason. Like in Australia and NZ, people will effectively be imprisoned in their homes. At this stage, bringing in laws or executive orders punishing people for leaving home will be easier; they will have already acclimated to being trapped at home anyway.

Furthermore, elites and globalists within the US are calling for hard lockdowns for at least six weeks, just like the Level 4 lockdowns in Australia. Federal Reserve member Neel Kashkari recently asserted that Americans are saving more, thus they should be subjected to hard lockdowns “because they can afford it”.

Virginia is planning mandatory COVID vaccinations, even though vaccines for SARS-like viruses have proven impossible to develop in the past, and rushed vaccines have a history of harming or killing people rather than protecting them. Set aside the issue that giving the government the power to force citizens to inject anything into their bodies is immoral.

What’s next? COVID camps? Well, yes, unless Americans make a hardstand. Mainstream media outlets have been suggesting this strategy for months. The Washington Post applauded the use of forced isolation camps in other nations and asks why the US has not yet used them beyond ports for foreign travelers? The reason is this: Many Americans will not go along with such measures, and will use force in-kind against anyone trying to lock them up because of a virus that is a moderate threat at most to a small percentage of the population.

That said, don’t assume that the establishment will not eventually try it here. They will. Be ready when they do so. Look to the actions in places like Australia and NZ and ask yourself, am I willing to go along with that? And if so, for how long? Because the globalists intend for these restrictions to become the “new normal”. They intend for this nightmare to last forever.

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.
