The Deep State’s Stealthy, Subversive, Silent Coup to Ensure Nothing Changes

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

“You have such a fervent, passionate, evangelical faith in this country…why in the name of God don’t you have any faith in the system of government you’re so hell-bent to protect? You want to defend the United States of America, then defend it with the tools it supplies you with—its Constitution. You ask for a mandate, General, from a ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight, when the country has its back turned.”—Seven Days in May (1964)

No doubt about it: the coup d’etat was successful.

That January 6 attempt by so-called insurrectionists to overturn the election results was not the real coup, however. Those who answered President Trump’s call to march on the Capitol were merely the fall guys, manipulated into creating the perfect crisis for the Deep State—a.k.a. the Police State a.k.a. the Military-Industrial Complex a.k.a. the Techno-Corporate State a.k.a. the Surveillance State—to swoop in and take control.

It took no time at all for the switch to be thrown and the nation’s capital to be placed under a military lockdown, online speech forums restricted, and individuals with subversive or controversial viewpoints ferreted out, investigated, shamed, and/or shunned.

This new order didn’t emerge into being this week, or this month, or even this year, however.

Indeed, the real coup happened when our government “of the people, by the people, for the people” was overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic, techno-corporate state that is in cahoots with a government “of the rich, by the elite, for the corporations.”

We’ve been mired in this swamp for decades now.

Every successive president starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt has been bought lock, stock, and barrel and made to dance to the Deep State’s tune.

Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC. Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military-industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.

Joe Biden will be no different: his job is to keep the Deep State in power.

Step away from the cult of personality politics and you’ll find that beneath the power suits, they’re all alike.

Follow the money.  It always points the way.

As Bertram Gross noted in Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America, “evil now wears a friendlier face than ever before in American history.”

Writing in 1980, Gross predicted a future in which he saw:

…a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution. More broadly, consequences include widespread intervention in international politics through economic manipulation, covert action, or military invasion

This stealthy, creeping, silent coup that Gross prophesied is the same danger that writer Rod Serling envisioned in the 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May, a clear warning to beware of martial law packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

Incredibly enough, almost 60 years later, we find ourselves hostages to a government-run more by military doctrine and corporate greed than by the rule of law established in the Constitution. Indeed, proving once again that fact and fiction are not dissimilar, today’s current events could well have been lifted straight out of Seven Days in May, which takes viewers into eerily familiar terrain.

The premise is straightforward.

With the Cold War at its height, an unpopular U.S. President signs a momentous nuclear disarmament treaty with the Soviet Union. Believing that the treaty constitutes an unacceptable threat to the security of the United States and certain that he knows what is best for the nation, General James Mattoon Scott (played by Burt Lancaster), the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and presidential hopeful, plans a military takeover of the national government.  When Gen. Scott’s aide, Col. Casey (Kirk Douglas), discovers the planned military coup, he goes to the President with the information. The race for command of the U.S. government begins, with the clock ticking off the hours until the military plotters plan to overthrow the President.

Needless to say, while on the big screen, the military coup is foiled and the republic is saved in a matter of hours, in the real world, the plot thickens and spreads out over the past half-century.

We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’ve been on that fast-moving, downward trajectory for some time now.

The question is no longer whether the U.S. government will be preyed upon and taken over by the military-industrial complex. That’s a done deal, but martial law disguised as national security is only one small part of the greater deception we’ve been fooled into believing is for our own good.

How do you get a nation to docilely accept a police state? How do you persuade a populace to accept metal detectors and pat-downs in their schools, bag searches in their train stations, tanks and military weaponry used by their small-town police forces, surveillance cameras in their traffic lights, police strip searches on their public roads, unwarranted blood draws at drunk driving checkpoints, whole-body scanners in their airports, and government agents monitoring their communications?

Try to ram such a state of affairs down the throats of the populace, and you might find yourself with a rebellion on your hands. Instead, you bombard them with constant color-coded alerts, terrorize them with shootings and bomb threats in malls, schools, and sports arenas, desensitize them with a steady diet of police violence, and sell the whole package to them as being for their best interests.

This present military occupation of the nation’s capital by 25,000 troops as part of the so-called “peaceful” transfer of power from one administration to the next is telling.

This is not the language of a free people. This is the language of force.

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

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

In 2009, reports by the Department of Homeland Security surfaced that labeled right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists) and called on the government to subject such targeted individuals to full-fledged pre-crime surveillance. Almost a decade later, after spending billions to fight terrorism, the DHS concluded that the greater threat is not ISIS but domestic right-wing extremism.

Meanwhile, the police have been transformed into extensions of the military while the nation itself has been transformed into a battlefield. This is what a state of undeclared martial law looks like when you can be arrested, tasered, shot, brutalized and in some cases killed merely for not complying with a government agent’s order or not complying fast enough. This hasn’t just been happening in crime-ridden inner cities. It’s been happening all across the country.

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

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

So you see, January 6 and its aftermath provided the government and its corporate technocrats the perfect excuse to show off all of the powers they’ve been amassing so assiduously over the years.

Mind you, by “government,” I’m not referring to the highly partisan, two-party bureaucracy of the Republicans and Democrats.

I’m referring to “government” with a capital “G,” the entrenched Deep State that is unaffected by elections, unaltered by populist movements, and has set itself beyond the reach of the law.

I’m referring to the corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country and calling the shots in Washington DC, no matter who sits in the White House.

This is the hidden face of a government that has no respect for the freedom of its citizenry.

Brace yourself.

There is something being concocted in the dens of power, far beyond the public eye, and it doesn’t bode well for the future of this country.

Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by the antics of the political ruling class that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware.

Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware.

And anytime you have a government so far removed from its people as to ensure that they are never seen, heard, or heeded by those elected to represent them, you’d better beware.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we are at our most vulnerable right now.

All of those dastardly seeds we have allowed the government to sow under the guise of national security are bearing demon fruit.

The gravest threat facing us as a nation is not extremism but despotism, exercised by a ruling class whose only allegiance is to power and money.

BILL OF RIGHTS contested election Deep State fair elections Headline News Intelwars James Comey John Brennan John Negroponte Lawsuits secure elections Supreme Court technocracy terror campaigns Voting War

Was the Election Free and Fair? The American Foreign Policy Establishment Doesn’t Care

This article was originally published by Ryan McMaken at The Mises Institute.

There’s at least one good reason to support Donald Trump’s ongoing lawsuits challenging the election results in several states: the US foreign policy establishment doesn’t want you to.

As Newsweek reported last week, “A group of more than 100 national security experts” from Republican administrations have condemned the president’s challenges to some states’ vote-counting process. These “experts” are claiming these legal efforts “undermine democracy” and “risk long-term damage” to the nation’s institutions. The signatories include people like Michael Hayden, John Negroponte, and Tom Ridge. These are the usual sort of “deep state” technocrats—for example, James Comey and John Brennan—who chime in to defend the status quo in the United States and insist it is an outrage that anyone (i.e., Donald Trump) departs from the usual way of doing things.

This alleged devotion to “democracy” and “the nation’s institutions” rings a bit odd coming from people like Negroponte and Hayden. Hayden, after all, has supported a litany of spying programs, torture, and the wholesale destruction of the human rights of both Americans and countless foreigners. Negroponte was the first director of national intelligence and has long supported spying on American citizens without a warrant. He oversaw the US-funded terror campaigns against Hondurans during the Reagan administration. Negroponte also enthusiastically supported the US’s 2003 war in Iraq which failed to achieve any of the objectives sold to the Americans as the reasons the war was a necessity.

Through scandals like the Abu-Graib debacle, unconstitutional wiretapping, torture, and ceaseless paranoid calls for an ever larger national-security state, the American foreign policy establishment has done more to undermine American democracy and institutions than Trump could ever hope for.

Yet,  these people are now speaking as if they are moral authorities on preserving the rights of Americans.

Given their clear disregard for basic human rights in recent decades, however, one suspects it is more likely that what really motivates the signatories’ denunciation of Trump’s election lawsuits is a desire to return to “business as usual.” This, after all, would make it easier for the regime to get back to dismantling the Bill of Rights, initiating new wars, and generally doing what it wants.

This becomes harder to do if millions of Americans begin to suspect that the regime isn’t as legitimate as has been long claimed, and that maybe the game is rigged against those who fail to be sufficiently friendly toward the permanent government in Washington and the so-called deep state.

But lest anyone think that investigating the integrity of American elections is a worthwhile endeavor, these national security bureaucrats resort to the usual, tired claim:

“By encouraging President Trump’s delaying tactics or remaining silent, Republican leaders put … national security at risk.”

The message is this: Dear Trump supporters, if you demand thorough legal proceedings and a careful look at this election’s outcome, then you support “America’s enemies.” We’ve heard a similar sentiment from these people before when the Bush Administration declared “you’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.” The message now is: “either you’re with us, or you’re with the Chinese totalitarians.”

It’s the usual sort of ruse that’s been used by the US foreign policy establishment for decades, and this is only the latest illustration. This same impulse is why the Conservative movement’s longtime leader William F. Buckley called for “a totalitarian bureaucracy” in the United States so long as it served the interests of the American national security state.

What’s the Harm in Contesting the Election?

More reasonable people however, should see the value and necessity of a slow, thorough, and public legal examination of the election.

Regardless of how one feels about Donald Trump, anyone who values fair play, honesty, and the votes of legal voters should want thorough audits and investigations. The question: “how much was this election affected by fraud?” warrants serious consideration and serious investigation into how the election was conducted. After all, whenever political power is at stake, there is no reason whatsoever to assume honesty and integrity are guiding the actions of all involved.

Fraud occurs with every election, of course. Anyone who claims any election contains no fraud lives in a fantasy land, or is lying. Voter fraud exists anywhere that votes are cast. Anecdotes of fraud in this election are plentiful, from backdated ballots in Pennsylvania, to  “coaching” voters in Detroit. The question is whether or not this sort of thing is widespread enough to change the outcome. In a number of lawsuits, the Trump campaign has suggested that it has been widespread.

And there’s no harm in allowing the legal process to proceed. After all, in legal and constitutional terms, the US election process is still very much on schedule.

Contrary to what various reporters seem to think, it is not the case that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris “were declared the election’s winners more than two weeks ago, after Fox News, the Associated Press and other television networks called” it. The outcomes of presidential elections aren’t declared by infotainment performers working at Fox News.

Rather, federal statutes and constitutional provisions stipulate that the Electoral College will meet in December, and the Congress will declare a winner shortly thereafter. This process is in no danger of being derailed.

It’s too bad that people like Michael Hayden don’t respect this constitutional process, but that’s just par for the course coming from someone who has been director of the CIA.

For those who actually care about some measure of accountability and transparency from government institutions in charge of running elections, there should be no problem with any presidential candidate demanding a wide variety of legal challenges. This in itself won’t solve the problem of election fraud, and it won’t make the regime respect anyone’s human rights. This wouldn’t make government by majority-rule any less problematic. But it would be helpful to gather more information on how much of a gulf lies between the perception of “free and fair elections” and the reality. And it is the very least that should be done in the wake of an election where the outcome is close, messy, and conducted by politicians who are very unlikely to have the average Americans’ interests at heart.

Congress Deep State Donald Trump experts Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Mainstream media national agenda no authority Presidential Election presidents race. power Ron Paul War

Powerful Presidents Are Incompatible with Liberty

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

The mainstream media has declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election. However, this does not mean the 2020 Presidential campaign has come to an end. President Donald Trump is continuing his legal challenges to the vote counts in some key states.

The emotional investment of many Americans into the race between Trump and Biden would have shocked the drafters of the Constitution. The Constitution’s authors intended the presidency to be an office of strictly limited powers that would not impact most Americans. The Constitution authorizes the president to administer laws passed by Congress, not create laws via executive orders. The president serves as Commander-in-Chief of the military following a Congressional declaration of war, with no authority to unilaterally send troops into foreign conflict.

The Founders did not intend for the president to set the “national agenda, “ and they would be horrified to see modern presidents assume the authority to order American citizens indefinitely detained and even killed without due process.

The idea that the president should exercise almost unlimited powers is a legacy of the progressive movement. Progressives, who are responsible for the rise of the American welfare-warfare state, have an affinity for a strong Presidency that is not surprising. A government that aspires to run our lives, run the economy, and run the world requires a strong executive branch unfettered by the Constitution’s chains. The Cold War also provided a boost to presidential power, as it justified presidents assuming more unchecked authority in the name of “national security.”

The concentration of power in the executive branch does not mean presidents are all-powerful. For example, even though presidents are judged by the state of the economy, the unelected, unaccountable Federal Reserve Board typically has greater influence over the economy then the president. Presidents often must tailor their economic policies to deal with the consequences of the Fed’s actions. This is why presidents spend so much time and energy trying to influence the “non-political” Fed. Fed Chairs usually, but not always, reciprocate by attempting to tailor polices to be “useful” to the incumbent president.

It has become cliché to say that “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This means no one—not even Members of Congress, should ever oppose or second-guess a president’s foreign policy decisions. However, this rule does not apply to those comprising what has become popularly known as the “deep state”: the military-industrial complex, the national security bureaucracy—including the CIA— congressional staffers, and members of the media. This deep state serves a permanent government and has an agenda it pursues regardless of the wishes of the president or the American people.

The deep state has derailed President Trump’s (modest) efforts to fulfill his campaign promise to pursue a less interventionist foreign policy and end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Members of the deep state were instrumental in the Russiagate hoax and the impeachment of President Trump. Many supported impeachment because President Trump’s actions contradicted the DC “consensus” on US -Ukraine relations and the need for a new Cold War with Russia. President Trump is not the first president to be undermined by the deep state and he will certainly not be the last.

The 2020 election has awoken many Americans to the corruption of the modern welfare-warfare state. These Americans are ripe for the message of liberty. They can help with the vital task of demystifying the US Presidency, destroying the deep state, restoring our constitutional republic, and regaining our lost liberties.

Barack Obama court system Deep State divide and conquer Donald Trump elections Gold Government Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Mainstream media never concede political agenda politics is a religion Scripted selections Silver swamp the system

PHONY RESULTS: JOE BIDEN, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

This article was contributed by Wealth Research Group. 

After Barack Obama’s long era in office, America was desperate for change. It wanted a newcomer, a person that wasn’t part of the “swamp,” but who could enact real reform in many of America’s key political agendas.

At first, no one gave Donald Trump a chance, but not only did he win, he proved to actually be a capable politician. We believe that he has lost this election, though, even if the court system will decide that voting irregularities did occur. Our assessment of the current state of affairs is that Biden has won, despite the allegations of software tampering that do allow for altering votes. We base it on the fact that, as of this time, every single Trump lawsuit has been tossed by the courts.

It’s not the result that 70,803,881 Americans, who voted for Donald Trump, want to see, but in a democratic system, within a constitutional republic – assuming that any cases of alleged vote counting irregularities don’t rattle the cage and expose a grand conspiracy – the Trump supporters will have to put Donald behind and focus on living in the present, planning for the future. Donald may never concede, but he understands that if he can’t convincingly change the narrative, he’s fighting gravity.

As I write this, the vitally-important swing states are all blue, apart from North Carolina:

  1. Georgia: The blue lead is razor thin. It boils down to 9,000 votes, which is 0.2%. In case of a recount, which looks to be in the works, it will be interesting to see what the results truly are.
  2. Nevada: 92% of the votes have been counted and Biden has a commanding lead.
  3. North Carolina: Trump has essentially won it by 0.4%.
  4. Pennsylvania: This crucial state has seen a reversal, with Biden now leading by 0.6%. This also happens to be the most contested electorate, as they have shown favoritism towards Biden throughout.
  5. Arizona: Biden has probably won.
  6. Michigan: Biden has probably won.

Trump claims that it isn’t over, but I would be shocked if there’s anything that could be done, at this point. Joe Biden gave a victory speech, so I’m pretty convinced that we can stick a fork in it; the mainstream media is shaping the reality for America and the world, before the court system actually get their say, which is distorting the real stance of this presidential race. For now, Biden is president-elect, but put a little question mark, right next to that statement.

For sure, I’ve learned much about the American voter this year: 70.8M Americans is not some marginal number to be discarded. With the mainstream media propaganda and the social media censorship, which many receive for their Trump-oriented opinions, it’s pretty remarkable to see how much “Trumpism” is real and will continue to be part of society.

It will be interesting to see if some common ground can be found; to me, that fertile soil has always been wealth, health and peace of mind — if politicians on both sides of the aisle can concentrate on that, instead of “being right,” the country would be much better off.

Gold has certainly been a huge beneficiary of this election, thus far. As you can see, under the fiat monetary system (1971-2020), gold has never seen such a surge during an election week. What it shows is just how much the dollar was held by both domestic and foreign institutions, who now feel that USD strength is behind us.

I’m not sure that competing fiat currencies are superior to the dollar and that Europe’s currency or Japan’s offer a better alternative, but I do sense a general theme of acceptance of the fact that interest rates are not going to rise at all or to meaningfully change under Biden, which investors did bet on (record number of bond short position indicated a bet on higher rates), in case of the dreaded Blue Sweep.

Here are the biggest risks, then, in the period that is in front of us, between now and January 20th 2021:

  1. Contested elections, which do end up showing voter suppression of a sort.
  2. Potential violent eruptions in unstable pockets of society
  3. No stimulus plans announced, especially not ones that are focused on rents.

WealthResearchGroup.com estimates, by using various data sources that, as a country, the United States is around $20bn behind on making rent payments. The country might make good on its rental promises; it’s a basic function of an economy; paying for shelter, provided by landlords.

  1. A complete change in the pandemic strategy, following blue pressure, which may include lockdowns.

We already knew, judging by David Einhorn’s research, that smart money has been exiting the markets since September 2nd, but this chart really puts it into perspective. Now, we shall see if they plan to return, as I believe they are.

bamboozle CON Game control Deep State Donald Trump elections Emergency Preparedness experts freedom governement is the problem Government Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden liars in suits mind manipulation power rigged rights Robbery Scam selections shills SLAVERY voters are duped wake up

The 2020 Election Bamboozle: We Are All Victims of the Deep State’s Con Game

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

“We’re run by the Pentagon, we’re run by Madison Avenue, we’re run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don’t revolt we’ll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche… As long as we go out and buy stuff, we’re at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people’s Villages, but we are all prisoners.”— Patrick McGoohan

This is not an election. This is a con game, a scam, a grift, a hustle, a bunko, a swindle, a flimflam, a gaffle, and a bamboozle.

In this carefully choreographed scheme to strip the American citizenry of our power and our rights, “we the people” are nothing more than marks, suckers, stooges, mugs, rubes, or gulls.

We are victims of the Deep State’s confidence game.

Every confidence game has six essential stages: 1) the foundation to lay the groundwork for the illusion; 2) the approach whereby the victim is contacted; 3) the build-up to make the victim feel like they’ve got a vested interest in the outcome; 4) the corroboration (aided by third-party conspirators) to legitimize that the scammers are, in fact, on the up-and-up; 5) the pay-off, in which the victim gets to experience some small early “wins”; and 6) the “hurrah”— a sudden manufactured crisis or change of events that creates a sense of urgency.

In this particular con game, every candidate dangled before us as some form of a political savior—including Donald Trump and Joe Biden—is part of a long-running, elaborate scam intended to persuade us that, despite all appearances to the contrary, we live in a constitutional republic.

In this way, the voters are the dupes, the candidates are the shills, and as usual, it’s the Deep State rigging the outcome.

Terrorist attacks, pandemics, civil unrest: these are all manipulated crises that add to the sense of urgency and help us feel invested in the outcome of the various elections, but it doesn’t change much in the long term.

No matter who wins this election, we’ll all still be prisoners of the Deep State.

We just haven’t learned to recognize our prison walls as such.

It’s like that old British television series The Prisoner, which takes place in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly idyllic retirement community known only as The Village.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned, monitored by militarized drones, and interrogated in The Village, a beautiful resort with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

While luxurious, the Village is a virtual prison disguised as a seaside paradise: its inhabitants have no true freedom, they cannot leave the Village, they are under constant surveillance, all of their movements tracked. Residents of the Village are stripped of their individuality and identified only by numbers.

First broadcast in Great Britain 50-some years ago, The Prisoner dystopian television series —described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka”—confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the loss of freedom, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, groupthink, mass marketing, and the tendency of human beings to meekly accept their lot in life as prisoners in a prison of their own making.

The series’ protagonist, played by Patrick McGoohan is Number Six.

Number Two, the Village administrator, acts as an agent for the unseen and all-powerful Number One, whose identity is not revealed until the final episode.

“I am not a number. I am a free man,” was the mantra chanted on each episode of The Prisoner, which was largely written and directed by Patrick McGoohan, who also played the title role.

In the opening episode (“The Arrival”), Number Six meets Number Two, who explains to him that he is in The Village because information stored “inside” his head has made him too valuable to be allowed to roam free “outside.”

Throughout the series, Number Six is subjected to interrogation tactics, torture, hallucinogenic drugs, identity theft, mind control, dream manipulation, and various forms of social indoctrination and physical coercion in order to “persuade” him to comply, give up, give in and subjugate himself to the will of the powers-that-be.

Number Six refuses to comply.

In every episode, Number Six resists the Village’s indoctrination methods, struggles to maintain his own identity, and attempts to escape his captors. “I will not make any deals with you,” he pointedly remarks to Number Two. “I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own.”

Yet no matter how far Number Six manages to get in his efforts to escape, it’s never far enough.

Watched by surveillance cameras and other devices, Number Six’s attempts to escape are continuously thwarted by ominous white balloon-like spheres known as “rovers.” Still, he refuses to give up. “Unlike me,” he says to his fellow prisoners, “many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages.”

Number Six’s escapes become a surreal exercise in futility, each episode an unfunny, unsettling Groundhog’s Day that builds to the same frustrating denouement: there is no escape.

As journalist Scott Thill concludes for Wired, “Rebellion always comes at a price. During the acclaimed run of The Prisoner, Number Six is tortured, battered, and even body-snatched: In the episode ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling,’ his mind is transplanted to another man’s body. Number Six repeatedly escapes The Village only to be returned to it in the end, trapped like an animal, overcome by a restless energy he cannot expend, and betrayed by nearly everyone around him.”

The series is a chilling lesson about how difficult it is to gain one’s freedom in a society in which prison walls are disguised within the seemingly benevolent trappings of technological and scientific progress, national security and the need to guard against terrorists, pandemics, civil unrest, etc.

As Thill noted, “The Prisoner was an allegory of the individual, aiming to find peace and freedom in a dystopia masquerading as a utopia.”

The Prisoner’s Village is also an apt allegory for the American Police State: it gives the illusion of freedom while functioning all the while like a prison: controlled, watchful, inflexible, punitive, deadly, and inescapable.

The American Police State, much like The Prisoner’s Village, is a metaphorical panopticon, a circular prison in which the inmates are monitored by a single watchman situated in a central tower. Because the inmates cannot see the watchman, they are unable to tell whether or not they are being watched at any given time and must proceed under the assumption that they are always being watched.

Eighteenth-century social theorist Jeremy Bentham envisioned the panopticon prison to be a cheaper and more effective means of “obtaining power of mind over mind, in a quantity hitherto without example.”

Bentham’s panopticon, in which the prisoners are used as a source of cheap, menial labor, has become a model for the modern surveillance state in which the populace is constantly being watched, controlled, and managed by the powers-that-be while funding its existence.

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide: this is the new mantra of the architects of the Deep State and their corporate collaborators (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Instagram, etc.).

Government eyes are watching you.

They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.

Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to amass a profile of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.

When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies.

Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we’re approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between obeying the dictates of the government—i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be—and maintaining our individuality, integrity, and independence.

When people talk about privacy, they mistakenly assume it protects only that which is hidden behind a wall or under one’s clothing. The courts have fostered this misunderstanding with their constantly shifting delineation of what constitutes an “expectation of privacy.” And technology has furthered muddied the waters.

However, privacy is so much more than what you do or say behind locked doors. It is a way of living one’s life firm in the belief that you are the master of your life and barring any immediate danger to another person (which is far different from the carefully crafted threats to national security the government uses to justify its actions), it’s no one’s business what you read, what you say, where you go, whom you spend your time with, and how you spend your money.

Unfortunately, George Orwell’s 1984—where “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”—has now become our reality.

We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed, corralled, and controlled by technologies that answer to the government and corporate rulers.

Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on, and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.

This doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts, and other activities taking place in the cybersphere.

Stingray devices mounted on police cars to warrantlessly track cell phones, Doppler radar devices that can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, license plate readers that can record up to 1800 license plates per minutesidewalk and “public space” cameras coupled with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology that lay the groundwork for police “pre-crime” programspolice body cameras that turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras, the internet of things: all of these technologies (and more) add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, read your emails, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.

As French philosopher, Michel Foucault concluded in his 1975 book Discipline and Punish, “Visibility is a trap.”

This is the electronic concentration camp—the panopticon prison—the Village—in which we are now caged.

It is a prison from which there will be no escape. Certainly not if the government and its corporate allies have anything to say about it.

As Glenn Greenwald notes:

“The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what [government officials] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals. This dynamic – the hallmark of a healthy and free society – has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable.”

None of this will change, no matter who wins this upcoming presidential election.

And that’s the hustle, you see: because despite all of the work being done to help us buy into the fantasy that things will change if we just elect the right candidate, the day after a new president is sworn in, we’ll still find ourselves prisoners of the Village.

This should come as no surprise to those who haven’t been taking the escapist blue pill, who haven’t fallen for the Deep State’s phony rhetoric, who haven’t been lured in by the promise of a political savior: we never stopped being prisoners.

So how do you escape? For starters, resist the urge to conform to a group mind and the tyranny of mob-think as controlled by the Deep State.

Think for yourself. Be an individual. As McGoohan commented in 1968, “At this moment individuals are being drained of their personalities and being brainwashed into slaves… As long as people feel something, that’s the great thing. It’s when they are walking around not thinking and not feeling, that’s tough. When you get a mob like that, you can turn them into the sort of gang that Hitler had.”

You want to be free? Remove the blindfold that blinds you to the Deep State’s con game, stop doping yourself with government propaganda, and break free of the political chokehold that has got you marching in lockstep with tyrants and dictators.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, until you come to terms with the fact that the government is the problem (no matter which party dominates), you’ll never be free.

banksters cash credit Debt Deep State demand experts Federal Reserve fiat currency Forecasting global events Gold Headline News Humanity Intelwars manipulating currencies Media Metals own the world powerful families Precious Metals public perception rise Rothschilds Silver spot price United States Warren Buffet

ROTHSCHILD ACUTE HEADACHE: GOLD’S METEORIC MOVE!

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

This isn’t Warren Buffett’s best year, in terms of PUBLIC PERCEPTION. He’s been ridiculed for selling the airlines a number of days before their SHARE PRICES bottomed and began TURNING AROUND. Gold, which Buffett often says does nothing and “Just Sits There” is SITTING PRETTY and outperforming Berkshire’s by miles and miles. Meanwhile Berkshire’s CASH PILE is eroding fast in PURCHASING POWER, but one thing to remember about Buffett is that he is the greatest capital allocator to ever live.

No one has championed the art of deciding where to put your next dollar to get the best RISK-ADJUSTED RETURN like he has. The chief reason for that, according to Warren himself, can be plainly summarized by his first rule of investing: NEVER LOSE MONEY.

The rule is obviously a rule of thumb (since never losing is impossible), which speaks to his STATE OF MIND – his obsession with playing defense, not offense, and with being consumed by the idea of RISK MANAGEMENT, not with maximum leverage.

Of all the quotes and pearls of wisdom that he has shared over the years, this is the one I see as fitting for the crumbling currency system: “Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.”

While Warren has a HUGE BLIND SPOT when it comes to gold, his psychology is incredible when it comes to making DIFFICULT DECISIONS and being disciplined with shareholders’ funds. He cuts losers fast and for good, a habit that a major survey found was the one that most investors just can’t BRING THEMSELVES to do.

Most investors who have a losing position will SINK WITH THE SHIP; they’ll refuse to admit failure and move on. I’ve talked extensively about position sizing, setting stop losses, rationing buy and sell orders, risk tolerance and net worth, more than I’ve talked about any other topic, but most investors just go ALL-IN regardless. They can’t help themselves.

Back in March, the world went ALL-IN on the dollar. It was such a crowded trade that the system couldn’t HANDLE THE DEMAND for cash. The distrust in any financial instrument was one that we did not even reach in 2008.

DOLLAR BEAR MARKET: DEEP STATE BANKERS LOST THE GAME!

As Buffett said above, then, energy spent on patching holes in a chronically leaking boat is a wasted one; the solution is to JUMP SHIP. More specifically, it is to jump to a BETTER SHIP, not into the cold, open ocean.

The media, owned by deep state bankers, will ALWAYS portray the fiat monetary system as the ONLY VESSEL AT SEA, so that if we don’t save it from sinking to the abyss, we’re ALL DOOMED.

That’s a LOAD OF CRAP.

Not only are there other ships better equipped to handle the turbulent waters, but those ships are BATTLE-TESTED, metaphorically speaking.

My message isn’t that Buffett is always right or that one should treat him as an all-wise guru, but that in CUTTING LOSSES, he has shown that there is no such thing as being HALF PREGNANT. We either stop with this MONETARY LUNACY, or we’re doomed to pay a HEFTY PRICE.

Luckily, you and I have figured out that we don’t have to wait for others to see what we HAVE UNDERSTOOD long ago about the national debt. We’re looking at the sinking fiat currency ship, using binoculars from the deck of the GOLD & SILVER superyacht.

The Rothschilds, along with other powerful families, have STIRRED GLOBAL EVENTS for centuries, manipulating currencies and advocating that banks are safe institutions that the general public ought to trust.

Gold is THE ANTIDOTE to this credit and debt disease.

Lord Evelyn, you and your ancestors have amassed a fortune, at the expense of humanity, but you’ve paid with your soul.

There’s definitely a global resistance movement to the idea that MORE debt will solve the deficit nightmare.

Pain is nature’s way of telling man that he is on the WRONG TRACK.

Those who have trusted governments are about to learn the hard way that absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Trump Doubles Down On Coronavirus Propaganda: Pandemic Will “Probably, Unfortunately” Get Worse”

Donald Trump, now championing face masks as “patriotic” has also been helping promote the official coronavirus narrative.  He now areas with the mainstream media, that the pandemic “probably, unfortunately,” get worse before it gets better.

Remember when Trump said the churches would be open and full on Easter, which was back in April? Well, he seems to be now aligning with the mainstream media’s fear-mongering and promotion of mask-wearing. “We’re asking everybody that when are you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask,” Trump said, a day after tweeting a picture of himself wearing one. “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact,” he said.

He is also backing a vaccine, and with the military’s help, will roll it out. He says that’s the priority.

Trump Pushes Mask Wearing Propaganda: It’s “Patriotic”

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

Getting a vaccine is a “top priority” as he appeared at a White House virus briefing for the first time since April. He has been in charge of Operation Warp Speed, to roll out a vaccine as quickly as possible, saying the pandemic “will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better, something I don’t like saying about things but that’s the way it is.”

Medical Tyranny: Trump Pivots To Mandatory Vaccinations Under Operation “Warp Speed”

Of course, it’ll get worse. The numbers are completely fabricated and the whole coronavirus is a scam to create an economic collapse, and usher in the New World Order and one world currency using the plandemic as an excuse, hoping the elitists will escape blame. Well, some of us have already figured it out.

The only thing Trump is doing now is letting us all know that he’s in on it. The sad fact that people still look at him as some kind of savior is kind of disturbing at best and blasphemous to their religious dogma at worst.  He’s literally telling us, in not so many words, that he’s on the side of the international banking cartel (the Federal Reserve) and the globalists who need the planet to take the vaccine.

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

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

The next round of stimulus money will once again, be created out of thin air, and the Federal Reserve will scoop up land, businesses, and other assets as people default on the loans of imaginary money. Hopefully, if nothing else, Trump’s words from his own mouth and actions in recent days will wake up those who are still asleep, believing this is a democrat problem. It’s not.  It’s a war for your mind. It’s psychological and spiritual warfare, and Trump has chosen the side of those who want to enslave humanity.

The goal of the Federal Reserve since its inception was world domination. This isn’t a secret.

“Full control of the global markets by the Federal Reserve, who is running the entire charade right now. It’s simple. It’s the Wall Street banks and the Fed that are running the world. And they will do whatever they want. They will get whoever they want in office. That’s it.” –Greg Mannarino

We have no control whatsoever on who wins these elections.

Basically, we don’t control the outcome of elections. The central banks do. If for one second, the Federal Reserve sees Biden as being more “on board” with their epic distribution of debt and credit, he WILL be the next president.  Trump could still  be reelected because he’s been incredibly effective at helping the central bank take over the planet in the aftermath of the COVID-19 scam too. –SHTFPlan

We’ve been warning about this from the beginning. Trump was put in power by the central banks, and if they decide he’ll advance their plans to enslave humanity, he’ll remain as their puppet in power.  If he even tries to step out of line, Biden will win. That’s why he’s changing his tune and aligning with the New World Order.  He wants to be the puppet in power. Please wake up.  This is beyond obvious at this point, people.

Prepare, and refuse to live your life in fear.  Live freely like the creator intended and protect your loved ones from this madness. The power is within you. Stop waiting for someone to save you and save yourself.

brainwashing COVER UP Death Deep State elitists exposure Ghislaine Maxwell Headline News how it works Intelwars Jeffrey Epstein Justice Lawyers LIES Mainstream media Murder propaganda rigged against us rigged in their favor ruling class same jail silenced Spence Kuvin Suicide system victims

Lawyer: The MSM Will Report On Ghislaine Maxwell’s Death In Jail

Much like Jeffrey Epstein, if Ghislaine Maxwell even comes close to “singing” and naming names, she will die in jail.  Many have already pointed out that her fate is about to be the same as Epstein’s and the mainstream media will cover it up for as long as they can get away with doing it.

We have already seen how the mainstream media reported on Epstein’s death.  His “suicide” that we all know wasn’t a suicide. We all know we aren’t getting the truth from the media, so why would they suddenly start doing so now especially when it would take down their handlers?

MSM Is Losing Control of The Official Narrative: “I’m Looking For The Truth!”

The only thing good coming out of this is the exposure of what the government and mainstream media have been for at least a century: puppets for the central banking cartel who is looking to take over the world. But don’t expect any information from Maxwell.  According to a New York Post article, her lawyer is already saying she will die in jail.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Madame’ Has Been Arrested: Will She Face A Similar Fate?

Maxwell will be silenced” in jail (like Epstein), a victim lawyer has reportedly predicted — a year after he correctly forecast Jeffrey Epstein’s early death behind bars. “I don’t think she is going to get out of jail alive,” Spencer Kuvin, an attorney for several Epstein victims, told The Daily Mail. “I said the same thing about Jeffrey Epstein and people laughed at me,” he told the news site. “I think she knows way too much information — I just have this gut feeling.”

We all know it.  The “deep state” isn’t going to allow themselves to be taken down. They set up this system and laugh at those who actually believe we can use it to take them down. It doesn’t work that way. They control the elections, the monetary supply, and mainstream media, and that’s all you need to craft whatever narrative you want.

In fact, if you want some more irony, experts told the Post Friday that there’s a good chance the 58-year old British socialite will be transferred to Lower Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center — the same facility where officials say Epstein hanged himself last August while awaiting trial for sex trafficking.

Epstein’s Autopsy Photos Are Just More Evidence That He Was Murdered

Much like Epstein’s “suicide” the mainstream media will whitewash and coverup any information she does have. This isn’t news really, just a reminder that she probably won’t be taking down the deep state as some hope.

clear agendas COVID-19 Deep State elites Gold Headline News Intelwars investors LIES Mistake Politics propaganda roman emperors social brainwashing

BREATHING YOUR OWN EXHAUST: Vipers and Thieves!

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

The elites have BEEN WINNING for so long that they feel they’re invincible. This is exactly what ROMAN EMPERORS believed and what every monarch and dictator has felt at one point or another, but the MISTAKES BEING MADE by the Deep State agents, specifically in the fields of politics and social brainwashing, ARE PLAIN STUPID.

There’s no doubt that the Internet has made their existence known to many tens of millions. If you do not understand that the politicians we have, our most successful performers and influencers, our news media flow, our educational systems, and our cultural principles are CONTROLLED FROM ABOVE and impacted by clear agenda, you have not truly internalized the existence of the most powerful people of the past 100 years.

I want to be clear that this is no longer UP FOR DEBATE. We know, for a fact, that the stock market has been TAMPERED WITH by the Plunge Protection Team and by central banks. You can see how growth is continuing to outperform value for the LONGEST STRETCH of our lifetime.

The CLASSIC INVESTORS, the veterans, are out of the markets, though.

I will say it again: the well-known billionaires that normally outperform the index are sitting IN CASH. You can’t convince them to get bullish right now!

Do you want a textbook definition of a bubble? WE’RE IN ONE! If you’re calling it out like I am, you’re on the outside and you’re ACKNOWLEDGING THAT you’re fine with missing out on the upside because it will pop, leaving you with a real chance to buy cheaply.

The bubble isn’t over, though, since it is gathering momentum, so know that it still HAS WIND at its back. In fact, the biotech sector, which is one of its MOST VOLATILE subsectors, is shooting up.

As you can see below, the sector has done INCREDIBLY WELL in this century, and it just announced itself again, beating its 2015 all-time high, which tells you the TREND IS STRONG.

What this historically means is a SUBDUED GOLD market for a while. Biotech and precious metals are INVERSELY CORRELATED, so know the odds are gold has peaked for the time being and it will consolidate above $1,500 and gather momentum for its 2021 move.

The ONE THING that could change all this is AN ELECTION STUNNER, which means a Biden victory.

That could CHANGE EVERYTHING, and I believe the Deep State is really going to FLOOR IT to make this a reality, but I’ve never seen a lousier candidate, so it will take MOUNTAINS OF PROPAGANDA to upset the status quo and TILT THE ODDS.

For now, buyers ARE CERTAIN that Trump will win and Powell will KICK INTO 6TH GEAR since their appetite for stocks is insatiable right now.

You can see how the markets are trying NOT TO SUCCUMB to the reality that COVID-19 and its unemployment disaster have inflicted; they are trying to go back to the FEBRUARY HIGHS, but it’s a foolish mistake.

Sure, the COVID-19 bear market was artificial – it’s not really a natural market event, so we can’t refer to it as such, but we also CAN’T IGNORE the power grab and the CRAZINESS of the response.

By bailing out just about everyone in the name of social justice, the government and the FED have also created a class of companies that DON’T DESERVE to breathe another day.

Take a look at this:

These companies are RIDDEN WITH DEBT and they’re doing no good to you and I. They exist thanks to FREE MONEY, but they actually delay real growth.

COVID-19 Deep State Donald Trump election rigged elitists Gold Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden markets MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX Precious Metals prices rigged Silver system weaker dollar

HOLLYWOOD ENDING: Silver $22/Ounce – HOLD ON TIGHT!

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

In our opinion, a Joe Biden victory is actually what will take GOLD over $2,184/ounce, our BULL MARKET target for the metal, but a Donald Trump win is what will propel silver to CENTER STAGE. Biden will BRING BACK the middle-class preppers to buying precious metals since their confidence level WILL DROP.

Trump’s agenda is to DECOUPLE with globalization and to make American industrial capacity more independent. His economic policy inspired much confidence and in his tenure, before Covid-19 hit, precious metals sales in America ALMOST DISAPPEARED.

His plan also requires a weaker dollar, and we will GET ONE, one way or another.

COVID-19 made people FLOCK TO DOLLARS, but that was an anomaly, not the trend.

As you can see, now that NEW YORKERS, some of which are prominent Wall Street hedge fund managers, understand that COVID-19 is NOT A LETHAL PANDEMIC but a mere case of a flu-like novel virus and they UNDERSTAND the risk of a recession is DIMINISHING, are resuming normal market activity.

Similar to 2009, they are lowering cash balances, getting back in the game, and SHOWING TRUE COLORS by betting on a recovery.

Most of them are CONVINCED it will be a long one (a “U” or a “W”), but we believe THEY UNDERESTIMATE just how much red tape Trump’s administration has cut through in the past four years. The recovery will be FAST AND STRONG.

No matter who wins, but especially if Donald Trump does, there will be an IMMEDIATE OUTCRY that the election was rigged.

I cannot tell you just HOW HATED he is in the circles of the Deep State, which have run this country behind the scenes since the rise of the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.

When Hillary lost in 2016, it shocked the elites so badly that they have THROWN EVERYTHING at him, but he hasn’t folded.

It is almost a miracle that no attempts have been made on his life.

If he wins a second term, China will realize that the American public is supportive of his anti-globalization agenda and they will have to MILITARIZE QUICKLY.

We believe a Trump victory, therefore, will lead to high silver prices.

Either way, it is our analysis that the election will be a PIVOTAL MOMENT for this nation.

We are working on a MASSIVE-SCALED report on both candidates that has never been published before.

We intend to PULL THE CURTAIN!

ballooning deficit control Debt Deep State deflation dependence enslavement Headline News hyperinflation Intelwars POVERTY Theft ticking time bomb trapped voters Wealth

HOSED DOWN: America’s Back – I DON’T BUY IT!

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

Fiat currencies are a STRANGE INVENTION. Sometimes, they fail miserably. At other times, they fail slowly, but NEVER have they been able to STAY ALIVE for long. Even the British Pound, the oldest fiat currency of them all, doesn’t have MUCH GOING FOR IT.

Fiat currencies are INHERENTLY diminishing in value since the money supply will ALWAYS INCREASE. The world is getting richer, so even if we were under a gold standard, the currency supply would enlarge constantly.

The BIG DIFFERENCE would be that it would have grown in accordance with debt and productivity levels. Politicians couldn’t JUST CREATE new units on a whim, nor could central bankers LEND currency to the entire RUSSELL 2000 index.

Simply put, when a central bank creates MORE CURRENCY than is needed for an economy, which it ERRONEOUSLY DOES, the excess currency floats to the rich and to assets, which inflate in price.

It’s easy to DETECT this flow of currency and it is what fuels our public debt.

The public learns TO DEPEND on this ballooning deficit (as shown above), instead of on itself for solutions. They don’t develop skills, but they develop dependence, which is just what politicians want – TRAPPED VOTERS.

Finally, what happens is that there’s STRESS between those who can’t figure out how the game of life works and those who have got the knowledge and the strategies.

Debt is a disaster, and if you think that just because there’s LOW INFLATION that debt doesn’t come with a price tag, YOU’RE WRONG.

Debt allows bad actors to get rich at your expense. It allows deep state to operate and PERPETUATES POVERTY.

Courtesy: Incrementum AG

This is the reason that in EVERY COUNTRY, the best option is to STORE WEALTH in gold, as you can see above!

I believe in American enterprise and I believe in this country and its people, but I’m NOT NAÏVE. Most have LITTLE TO NO financial education and can’t understand basic economic terms.

I don’t see this changing anytime soon and though it saddens me, I know the part I have to play in this and that is to publish this letter and inspire anyone that listens that the door to wealth is open, but it’s NOT EASY.

Through this platform, my objective is to allow everyone to COME INTO the world of finance.

Think about the fact that if every American adult would go out and buy 6 ounces of silver (worth around $100 today), more than one billion ounces of silver would be needed. This would bring forth the national debt debate TO THE FRONT AND CENTER and would FORCE AUTHORITIES to figure out new ways to conduct themselves.

Wealth creates destinies, not handouts.

It is DEEPLY DISTURBING that they don’t show this chart in schools and mainstream media outlets. EVERYONE should know that they’re saving wealth in a ticking TIME BOMB unless they own precious metals.

America’s future will be great, but the problem is that it’s not inclusive; the GDP grows, but so do the polarities between classes. The rich are FINDING OUT that unless they learn profitable ways TO ELEVATE others out of poverty, by inspiring them to get trained in new skills, and unless the government LEAVES STUDENT TUITION alone so that its price can fall by 90% and be realistic, the income gap will continue to WIDEN and they’ll be scrutinized much more and won’t be cherished for creating jobs, but vilified for exploiting workers.

America’s back, but its problems remain BLATANTLY VISIBLE.

Don’t be fooled.

Coronavirus crafting the narrative Deep State deep state actors facts Headline News Hoax Intelwars Martial Law Military Force Opinions pandemic plandemic 2 Politicians power Q Violence x22 report

X22 Report: The Power Structure is Dismantled

YouTube channel X22 Report’s recent video is up, and in it, are claims that the deep state’s power structure has been dismantled.  We knew this power grab was destined to fail from the beginning, and we also know there will be more events perpetrated, including plademic 2, which is expected to occur in the fall. 

No One Is Talking About The Plandemic Anymore

According to X22 Report, yes. It’s all over. The deep state and mainstream media event has “failed big time.” There is so much information in this video that an article cannot do it justice.  If you have time, listen to it. Whether or not you agree or disagree with what’s being said, information is what’s powerful. In this age of censorship, it’s important to listen to everything you can and find what’s right and what resonates with you.

These riots are the army of the deep state. The real protesters are being pushed aside so the violent deep state actors can create violence and chaos, says Dave at the beginning. Most people are waking up to that fact.  Unfortunately, a lot of innocent people who only want to protest a murder by police are getting caught up in the chaos.  “They are dismantling the power structure of the deep state.”

“Remember, the deep state, they are going to do event after event. They’re gonna use everything they have. Watch for what’s next. It could be ISIS, it could be something else. We don’t know. But they’re gonna continually try to push an event after an event after an event and put pressure on Trump.” Once the riots come to an end, they are going to need something else to get the masses riled up over.

People are waking up. As they wake up they are looking for answers. People want to know what’s going on. It could be soon when people start to hear about what politicians have been doing behind closed doors for so long.  Remember, everyone has an opinion. Everyone has the right to that opinion. But, they may not have the facts to support their opinion.  Now is the time to read and listen and learn. Have a strong enough mind to entertain an idea and think about it critically. That’s how we grow and learn.

I disagree that violence an military intervention used on the American public is an acceptable response to agitation caused by the deep state. That doesn’t mean that perhaps I didn’t miss something.  I’ve said it before, IF I’m wrong about Trump, I’ll be the first to admit it. So far, he looks to be aiding the deep state by sending in the military for martial law especially if he KNOWS these riots are deep state caused. However, X22 says it’s all about crafting the narrative and preparing for more information to come out.

X22 Report says that this is about dripping out the information. Buckle up. It looks like the rest of 2020 will be just as eventful as the first part of the year was.

anthony fauci Barack Obama Cabal control Deborah birx Deep State Donald Trump election elititsts enslavement Evidence facts Fear government control Headline News Humanity indictments Information Intelwars liars lockdowns plandemic political Politics Q Q anon scamdemic shadow presidency technocracy TREASON Truth Virus

Dismantled: Shadow Presidency, Truth Prevails

In a recent video done by X22Report titled Shadow Presidency Dismantled, Panic, Nothing Can Stop the Truth, Nothing, it is laid out how Barack Obama has been pulling the strings since Donald Trump was elected. The video also says that this whole situation is not about a virus, but it’s about the election and defeating Trump.

The [DS]/MSM (democrats/mainstream media) event push has nothing to do with the virus, it is now slowly turning into the mail-in election narrative. Panic is in the air. The entire shadow government, shadow presidency is now dismantled. The [DS] is in trouble, the truth is now coming out and the people are starting to put it all together, the truth is reaching the population, this is just the beginning.

There is far too much information in this video for me to type it all out, but it’s well researched and well done:

Anyone who has read my articles for any amount of time knows I’m not a Trump follower or worshipper.  I am incredibly skeptical of what he’s done and how he’s handling everything, including this “plandemic.” He looks like just another politician to me.  However, if I turn out to be wrong, I will be the first to admit it. But we should still be aware that he is pushing for mandatory vaccines, and admits that he, himself, is in control of the vaccine rollout.

More Proof Trump Is Working On Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”

In the video linked above, which I suggest everyone watch in its entirety, is evidence that Barack Obama was operating as the “shadow president” and that Trump is really attempting to take down the “deep state” or “the cabal” or “the elitists” whatever term you choose. X22Report uses posts from Q to draw conclusions, and I must admit, I’m intrigued, and I honestly hope he’s right and I’m wrong about Trump.

My skepticism stems from the fact that Trump signed the coronavirus stimulus bill that he had to know was a disaster for the economy. Is he trying to take down the Fed by doing that? It’s possible. But he destroyed the livelihoods of millions of Americans by allowing Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx to control the lockdowns. Those two technocrat tyrants even patted governors on the back for grabbing as much power as possible.  If he was really concerned about freeing the American people, wouldn’t he have done it already and stopped those two from destroying livelihoods?

Again, I am a skeptic because of Trump’s actions, and his actions alone. But I hope I’m wrong and I hope Trump can somehow bring down the disgusting cabal and bring to light what they’ve done to humanity for centuries. Because if he’s successful, humanity will realize that they should never give up any of their rights or freedom for any amount of time to any other being for any amount of false security. The awakening has already begun, and if this is Trump’s plan, Godspeed.

bill gates Cognitive Dissonance Deep State Donald Trump eyes open freedom general and admiral Headline News hypocrites Illusions Intelwars liberty mandatory vaccines Operation warp speed Truth tyranny Vaccine vaccines wake up

More Proof Trump Is Working On Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”

So many didn’t want to hear that Donald Trump is helping get the Bill Gates vaccine ready in record time under “Operation Warp Speed.” But the truth is more important than feelings, and people should be aware of what’s going on: this is full tyranny, and Trump is working with the “general and the admiral” to help roll this vaccine out.

What would he need the help of generals and admirals for if this was not going to be mandatory?  We all need to stop looking at the left vs. right paradigm if we ever want true liberty and freedom, and too many are turning a blind eye to this.  Why is to not ok for Bill Gates to work on ID2020, but it’s fine if Trump does? I’ll answer: neither is acceptable and both are tyrannical.

Liberty should not be negotiable, and if Trump does something to stomp on human rights, I am going to mention it, even though it’ll upset some people.  Your feelings don’t change what Trump said with his own mouth.

Yes, what Trump said in the last video about “forced vaccines” was about measles, and it says so in the video clip where he says it.

Medical Tyranny: Trump Pivots To Mandatory Vaccinations Under Operation “Warp Speed”

Yet that mentality still should not be forgotten and that is why it was included. If he wants mandatory measles vaccinations, he won’t stop at just the measles and it’s delusional, at best, to think that he would. Trump admits that he is in control of Operation Warp Speed with the plans to have 300 million vaccines available as soon as humanly possible.

There are 325 million people in the United States.  That doesn’t leave many unvaccinated. Go to 1:30 in the video to hear Trump say, himself, that’s he’s in control of this operation:

Trump, himself, said:

“I hope we’re gonna come up with a good weap-vaccine, ah, Johnson and Johnson and Oxford and lots of different great companies, representative of our country in sometimes-in some ways, the NIH is working very hard and doing a terrific job. Uh, no, I hope we’re gonna have a vaccine, in and we’re going to fast-track it like you’ve never seen before. If we come up with a vaccine, I think they probably will.”

Next, a reporter asks Trump “who is in charge of this operation?” Trump says:

“Uh we have, you know who’s in charge of it? Honestly, I am. I’ll tell ya, I’m really in charge of it. I could say somebody else I will say we’re dealing with the general and the admiral. They’re very much in charge, but, I think, probably more than anything, I’m in charge. And I’m the one that gets blamed and I get blamed anyway. Don’tforget, if we come up with a vaccine in record time, they’ll say they should have done it faster. But we have a lot of good possibilities.”

Germany even confirmed that Donald Trump attempted to buy the firm working on a coronavirus vaccine in Germany. The president is not “draining the swamp,” He’s going all-in on a vaccine that will be horrifyingly fast-tracked.

And while Trump didn’t say the vaccine would be mandatory, it’s hard to imagine this going any other way when he’s wanting 300 million doses and is working with the “general and the admiral” on this operation.

Operation Warp Speed intends to fast track Bill Gates’ vaccine and Trump admits he’s in control of that operation. Don’t take my word for it. Listen to him say it yourself. I only want your eyes fully open to what’s going on, and what they intend to do to all of us. If you want to berate the messenger for bringing you this information, do so. But it’s information you all should be aware of.

Does anyone honestly believe that this vaccine won’t be mandatory? That obviously the goal of the scamdemic.

bias CDC CNN community transmission Coronavirus criteria Deep State Epidemic fake news global pandemic Globalist Headline News Intelwars Mainstream media news outlet official narrative outbreak pandemic propaganda Virus

CNN Begins Calling COVID-19 Outbreak a Pandemic

Even “fake news” CNN, which is known for its pro-government bias and pushing the official narrative, is calling the coronavirus a pandemic. The World Health Organization has still refused to designate this viral infection as a pandemic, despite it meeting the criteria.

Many epidemiologists and public health experts argue the world is already experiencing a pandemic because of the novel coronavirus, according to CNN Even though the WHO and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) are not dubbing this a pandemic, many have decided to take matters into their own hands.  This shouldn’t be alarming, however, as we all knew this virus was floating around out there and close to (if not completely) meeting the criteria for a global pandemic declaration.

There are now over 100,000 cases and over 3,000 deaths attributed to this new virus. In one day last week, the number of new cases outside of China, where the virus originated, was nearly 9 times higher than the number of new cases in China. This virus has found a foothold on every continent except for Antarctica. In several countries, the number of cases continues to climb. CNN

Some of those countries “have had sustained community transmission of a substantial sort,” said Dr. William Schaffner, a Vanderbilt University professor and longtime adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Put that together, that spells pandemic.”

But because this is CNN, it’s difficult to trust that they aren’t just continuing to shove an official narrative down our throats.

‘This Is FAKE NEWS’: CNN Runs Globalist Sponsored Propaganda Piece That Claims That The Deep State Is NOT Real, No Conspiracy Against Trump

CNN‘s motives have been far from helpful for too long, making it incredibly difficult to trust the news outlets.

CNN Vows To Manipulate The 2020 Election By Not Showing Any Of Trump’s Rallies

While the specific criteria for a pandemic are not universally defined, there are three general criteria that an outbreak should meet. First, a virus that can cause illness or death. Second, the outbreak must have sustained person-to-person transmission of that virus; and evidence of spread throughout the world. And third, the CDC says a pandemic is “an epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, usually affecting a large number of people,” while an epidemic is “an increase, often sudden, in the number of cases of a disease above what is normally expected in that population in that area.”

“I think we’re there,” said Harvard epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch of calling the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. “I think the definition you have there … an epidemic that’s in multiple locations affecting a large number of people — is the basic issue. And I might add, that’s not under control in those places. I think all of those criteria are met.”

By those criteria, CNN isn’t wrong in labeling the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. But is it just some sort of propaganda in order to push an official narrative? The news outlet is hardly trustworthy.  So what’s the end game here?

2016 election Bernie Sanders betrayal Conspiracy Fact and Theory Constitution Deep State DNC corruption Donald Trump Espionage exposing the government Extradition Free Press free speech Headline News Hillary Clinton HYPOCRISY Information Intelwars John Brennan journalism Julian Assange Presidential Candidate Ron Paul russian election meddling torture Trump administration WikiLeaks

Trump’s Betrayal of Julian Assange

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

One thing we’ve learned from the Trump Presidency is that the “deep state” is not just some crazy conspiracy theory. For the past three years, we’ve seen that deep state launch plot after plot to overturn the election.

It all started with former CIA director John Brennan’s phony “Intelligence Assessment” of Russian involvement in the 2016 election. It was claimed that all 17 US intelligence agencies agreed that Putin put Trump in office, but we found out later that the report was cooked up by a handful of Brennan’s hand-picked agents.

Donald Trump upset the Washington apple cart as a presidential candidate and in so doing he set elements of the deep state in motion against him.

One of the things candidate Donald Trump did to paint a deep state target on his back was his repeated praise of Wikileaks, the pro-transparency media organization headed up by Australian journalist Julian Assange. More than 100 times candidate Trump said “I love Wikileaks” on the campaign trail.

Trump loved it when Wikileaks exposed the criminality of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, as it cheated to deprive Bernie Sanders of the Democratic Party nomination. Wikileaks’ release of the DNC emails exposed the deep corruption at the heart of US politics, and as a candidate, Trump loved the transparency.

Then Trump got elected.

The real tragedy of the Trump presidency is nowhere better demonstrated than in Trump’s 180 degree turn away from Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange. “I know nothing about Wikileaks,” he said as president. “It’s really not my thing.”

US pressure and bribes to the Ecuadorian government ended Assange’s asylum and his seven years in a room at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. After his dramatic arrest by London’s Metropolitan Police last April, he has been effectively tortured in British jails at the behest of the US deep state.


Today, Monday the 24th of February, Assange faces an extradition hearing in a UK courthouse. The Trump administration – led by a man who praised Assange’s work – seeks a show trial of Assange worthy of the worst of the Soviet era. The US is seeking a 175-year prison sentence.

The Trump administration argues that the Australian Assange should be tried and convicted of espionage against a country of which he is not a citizen. At the same time the Trump administration argues that the First Amendment does not apply to Assange because he is not an American citizen! So Assange is subject to US law when it comes to publishing information embarrassing to the US deep state but he is not subject to the law of the land – the US Constitution – which protects all journalists and is the backbone of our system of government.

It is ironic that a President Trump who has been the victim of so much deep state meddling has done the deep state’s bidding when it comes to Assange and Wikileaks. President Trump should preempt the inevitable US show trial of Assange by granting the journalist blanket pardon under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The deep state Trump is serving by persecuting Assange is the same deep state that continues to plot Trump’s own ouster. Free Assange!
