Pat Gray: We are NOT a democracy!

CNN tweeted on Tuesday: “A dangerous, cultish devotion. Analysis: The GOP’s embrace of Trump’s movement based on lies shows he doesn’t have to be president to pose great risks to democracy.”

Pat Gray addressed the post and explained that America is not a democracy. He also questioned what these “grave risks” are that CNN claims Trump poses to the country.

The Tyranny of the Majority

Which is better — to be ruled by one tyrant three thousand miles away, or three thousand tyrants one mile away?
-Rev. Mather Blyes (1706-1788)

Does it really matter if the instrument curtailing liberty is a monarch or a popularly elected legislature? This conundrum, along with the witty version of it put to a Boston crowd in 1775 by the little-known colonial-era preacher with the famous uncle — Cotton Mather, addresses the age-old question of whether liberty can survive in a democracy.

Blyes was a loyalist, who, along with about one-third of the American adult white male population in 1776, opposed the American Revolution and favored continued governance by Great Britain. He didn’t fight for the king or agitate against George Washington’s troops, he merely warned of the dangers of too much democracy.

No liberty-minded thinker I know of seriously argues today in favor of a hereditary monarchy, but many of us are fearful of an out-of-control hybrid democracy, which is what we have in America today. I say “hybrid” because, there remain in our federal structure a few safeguards against run-away democracy such as, the equal state representation in the Senate, the Electoral College, the state control of federal elections and life-tenured federal judges and justices.

Of course, the Senate as originally crafted did not consist of popularly elected senators. Rather, they were appointed by state legislatures to represent the sovereign states as states, not the people in them. Part of James Madison’s genius was the construction of the federal government as a three-sided table. The first side stood for the people — the House of Representatives. The second side stood for the sovereign states — the Senate. And the third side stood for the nation-state — the presidency. The judiciary, whose prominent role today was unthinkable in 1789, was not part of this mix.

In his famous Bank Speech, Madison argued eloquently against legislation chartering a national bank because the authority to create a bank was not only not present in the Constitution but also was retained by the states and reserved to them by the Tenth Amendment.

In that speech, he warned the creeping expansion of the federal government would trample the powers of the states and also the unenumerated rights of the people that the Ninth Amendment — his pride and joy because it protected natural rights — prohibited the government from denying or disparaging.

He gave that speech in February of 1791, eleven months before the addition of the Bill of Rights — the first 10 amendments — to the Constitution. Given the popular fears of a new central government, Madison assumed that the Bill of Rights would be quickly ratified. He was right.

His Bank Speech remains just as relevant today.

Had Madison been alive during the presidency of the anti-Madison Woodrow Wilson — who gave us World War I, the Federal Reserve, the administrative state and the federal income tax — he would have recoiled at a president destroying the three-sided table. Wilson did that by leading the campaign to amend the Constitution so as to provide for the direct popular election of senators. Nor would Madison have stomached the efforts today by liberal Democrats to amend the Constitution to provide for the direct popular election of the president.

Part of Madison’s genius was to craft anti-democratic elements into the Constitution. And some of them — like retaining state sovereignty — created laboratories of liberty. Ronald Reagan reminded the American public in his first inaugural address that the states formed the federal government, not the other way around. Had I been the scrivener of that speech, I’d have begged him to add: “And the powers that the states gave to the feds, they can take back.”

Reagan also famously said that we could vote with our feet. If you don’t like the over-the-top regulations in Massachusetts, you can move to New Hampshire. If you are fed up with the highest state taxes in the union in New Jersey, you can move to Pennsylvania.

But the more state sovereignty the feds absorb — the more state governance that is federalized — the fewer differences there are among the regulatory and taxing structures of the states. This has happened because Congress — sensing a popular majority — has become a general legislature without regard for the constitutional limits imposed on it.

If Congress wants to regulate an area of human behavior that is clearly beyond its constitutional competence, it bribes the states to do so with borrowed or Federal Reserve-created cash. Thus, it offered hundreds of millions of dollars to the states to lower their speed limits on highways and to lower the acceptable blood alcohol level in peoples’ veins — this would truly have set Madison off — before a presumption of DWI may be argued, in return for cash to pave state-maintained highways.

The states are partly to blame for this as well. They take whatever cash Congress offers and they accept the strings that come with it. And they, too, are tyrants. The states mandated the unconstitutional and crippling lockdowns of 2020, not the feds. The states should be paying the political and financial consequences for their misdeeds, not the feds. They took property and liberty without paying for it as the Constitution requires them to do, not the feds.

Blyes feared a government of 3,000. Today, the feds employ close to 3 million. Thomas Jefferson warned that when the federal treasury becomes a federal trough, and the people recognize it as such, they would only send to Washington politicians — faithless to the Constitution — who promise to bring home the most cash.

And the majority will take whatever it wants from the minority that cherishes limited government, private property and personal liberty.

agenda barter centralized power control decentralization is the answer democracy discernment Economy global slavery government is slavery Headline News Hoax Humanity Intelwars left vs. right paradigm lie local localization lockdowns Manipulation Motivation no power oppression plandemic Relocating ruling class scamdemic The great reset Theft TOTALITARIANISM wake up

How To Protect Your Local Economy From The Great Reset

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.us at The Birch Gold Group. 

Over the years, I have written extensively about the concept of economic “decentralization” and localization, but I think these ideas are difficult for some people to visualize without proper motivation. By that I mean, it’s not enough that the current centralized model is destructive and corrupt; it has to start breaking down or show its true totalitarian colors before anyone will do anything to protect themselves.

Sadly, the majority of people tend to take action only when they have hit rock bottom.

In recent months the pandemic lockdown situation has provided a sufficient wake-up call to many conservatives and moderates. We have seen the financial effects of pandemic restrictions in blue states, with hundreds of thousands of small businesses closing, tax revenues imploding, and millions of people relocating to red states just to escape the oppressive environment.

Luckily, conservative regions have been smart enough to prevent self-destruction by staying mostly open. In fact, red states have been vastly outperforming blue states in terms of economic recovery exactly because they refuse to submit to medical tyranny.

I outlined this dynamic in detail recently in my article Blue State Economies Will Soon Crumble – But Will They Take Red States With Them?

The data is undeniable: the states and cities that enforce lockdown mandates are dying, the states that ignore mandates are surviving. However, with a Biden presidency, there is a high probability that the federal government will now seek to force compliance from all states. In other words, lockdowns will become a national issue rather than a state issue.

For now, Biden is pretending as if reopening is right around the corner, but as I have noted in the past, the Reset agenda will never allow this. A reopening, if it happens at all, will be short and lockdowns will return. We are already seeing a new narrative being introduced to the public involving “COVID mutations”, which are supposedly “more deadly” than the original COVID-19 outbreak. So, there is a brand new and useful threat and the establishment will exploit it as a rationale for more lockdowns and restrictions.

Beyond the pandemic mandates, there are also numerous Reset agenda policies that will be implemented under the Biden administration, including insane Green New Deal related executive orders and legislation claiming to reduce carbon emissions. What they will really do is annihilate resource production. Millions of jobs will be lost and entire industries will be erased unless conservatives act to stop Biden in his tracks.

This means doing far more than stalling through political maneuvers. We are going to have to use concrete strategies to retake control of resource management within the states. Pointless globalist carbon policies composed by entities like the UN have no place in American economic planning. A message needs to be sent that they will never be accepted here.

Time is running out to prepare. Lockdowns will return within a few months and this time they will be federally enforced. Conservatives must be ready to defy these orders if they have any hope of saving their local economies. This is going to take individual efforts to stock necessities and secure their finances, but ultimately wider organization is going to be needed to weather the storm.

Conservatives must establish coalitions of counties and states, and certain economic measures will have to be applied to insulate from damage. The federal government and Biden will attempt to punish red states for refusing to submit, and we need to be ready for that eventuality.

Here are some ways that conservative communities can stop the Reset agenda…

Localization

On a smaller scale, conservatives can accomplish a lot by simply changing their buying habits. If you do 80% of your retail spending with big box stores and online outlets like Amazon and only 20% at local small businesses, then try to switch that ratio. Spend 80% at local businesses and 20% at corporate outlets. Yes, small businesses tend to cost a little extra, but who do you really want your money going to? Do you want your money filling the pockets of international corporate moguls that are working to destroy your freedoms and undermine your economy? Or, do you want your cash to circulate locally?

Individuals can also start their own business from home focusing on the production of necessities or necessary skill sets. They can establish a small business co-op and encourage the community to buy locally. Often, people just don’t know how many services are available from small businesses in their area, so they automatically go to big-box providers. Small businesses must work together to change the dynamic.

This strategy also extends to local farms. Consumers and grocery stores need to buy more of their produce from farms in the area and less from chains that ship in produce from other countries. There are millions of acres of farmland in the U.S. that do not grow food at all because these farms are paid by the federal government not to. Encouraging local food production is paramount to remaining free from centralized control.

Organized Refusal To Comply

The problem with conservatives is that we tend to be so independent that we avoid organization. This is a problem because it leads to self-isolation. During the pandemic lockdowns in blue states, some conservative-owned businesses refused to comply, but they were left mostly to fend for themselves with no aid from the wider community. If more businesses were to ally with each other and protested in tandem, dozens or hundreds of defiant businesses working together would be a lot harder to shut down than just a few.

By extension, it’s not enough for conservatives to merely argue against the lockdowns and demand businesses stay open, we need to also defend those businesses that take action. We need to support them with our dollars and stand in the way of anyone trying to close them down. They are taking a big risk for us, so we need to be willing to take risks for them.

Imagine if Biden tried to assert a national lockdown order and more than half the businesses in the country ignored him? What if patrons refused to allow federal agencies to intimidate those businesses? The lockdowns would be nullified, and Biden would have little recourse.

Establish Barter Networks

In the event that the U.S. economy breaks down completely, we must create contingencies to prevent total trade disruption. Without trade, populations become desperate because no one has the ability to provide every necessity all the time. People have to be able to barter goods and services in an open market.

Barter networks are a base fundamental, the universal go-to solution during an economic collapse. Every society in modern history has used barter markets to stay afloat during financial crises and to bypass government economic controls. We must be willing to do the same.

Conservatives must start organizing barter networks within their communities now. It does not matter if you are trading with a couple of people or hundreds; the process needs to start somewhere.

Why is this so important? Because there is a very good chance that the federal government will try to fiscally punish any state or county that opposes lockdown measures and Reset policies. This means that the government will first seek to cut off federal funding to red states. In the midst of economic crisis, many regions have become reliant on federal stimulus as a crutch, and this dependency makes them vulnerable to control.

To truly rebel against the Reset, local economies need to be free from federal oversight or consequences. With barter networks in place along with possible local scrip and alternative currencies, the public will be less fearful of economic retaliation.

Take Back Management Of Local Resources

We have already seen attempts by Biden to disrupt the production of carbon-based energy resources like oil and coal. Frankly, the time is long past due for states and counties to take back control of federal lands. The government has been stifling American production for decades and this has hurt rural communities in particular.

In my area, the EPA has essentially destroyed the timber harvesting industry through unfair regulations. This has led to federal mismanagement of forests to the point that fire hazard has become a major issue. All the young men in the county used to work as lumberjacks to support their families; now they have to leave or work as wildland firefighters. It’s completely backward. And this is happening while U.S. lumber prices are skyrocketing.

Conservative counties and states need to take back land and resource management and allow reasonable production to return. Biden should have no say in whether or not oil wells in North Dakota stay operational, or coal mines in West Virginia stay open, or trees Montana are selectively harvested. As long as the bulk of wealth from the resource production stays within the state where the resources were harvested, I see no downside to this kind of response.

If the federal government tries to retaliate by cutting off federal funds, it won’t matter because the states will be producing jobs and wealth for themselves independently.

Immunity From Cancel Culture

In our current political environment, it is becoming a fact of life that the hard left can and will try to harm people that oppose their ideology. Big tech companies and the government are helping them to do this. Now more than ever, conservatives that wish to remain free to voice their views and share facts that are contrary to the leftist narrative must seek protection from cancellation. But how do we do this?

For one, we can work for ourselves. Being self-employed means never having to worry about being fired because of your political opinions. Or, conservatives need to work for conservatives. This means conservative companies need to focus on hiring conservative employees, and if the leftist mob tries to attack an individual, those companies can easily ignore them. Of course, this also means that conservative consumers need to start making a list of conservative companies that have proven themselves to be immune to leftist pressure. We need to support these companies.

Conservatives should also look into the possibility of campaigns to build more platform alternatives to Big Tech and social media. We need more web service providers that are owned by people who respect free speech rights. We may even need our own internet.

All of these things are possible, but it takes organization and effort. Conservative communities can become safe havens for civil liberties, but this means we cannot be isolated from each other anymore. We have to be connected by more than our principles, we must also be connected through actions.

democracy Foreign Policy Intelwars International news Myanmar Myanmar coup President joe biden

Watch: Woman appears to dance obliviously as Myanmar military instigates coup in background

A coup was staged in the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar Monday when the nation’s military detained democratically-elected leaders including Nobel Peace Prize-winner state counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.

The BBC reports that military leaders are enforcing a night-time curfew in the country after declaring a one-year state of emergency as a pretext to seize power. U.S. President Joe Biden has condemned the coup and threatened new sanctions against the country.

In a video that’s beginning to spread virally on social media, a woman filmed herself doing an aerobics workout, oblivious to a convoy of military vehicles headed to the parliament building to seize control behind her.

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, was ruled under a military dictatorship for 26 years from 1962 until 1988 when the country’s socialist military dictator was forced to step down amid nationwide protests. In the period following through the 1990s, Aung San Suu Kyi, the daughter of the nation’s modern founder Aung San, became an advocate for democracy, with her party winning free elections in 1990. But the military refused to cede power at the time, placing Suu Kyi under house arrest and remaining in power for another 22 years until 2011.

Between 2011 and 2015, the country began to slowly transition to a democracy, adopting a constitution that was drafted in 2008 and holding elections in 2015, in which Suu Kyi’s pro-democracy party was again victorious. The military never fully relinquished power, however, retaining a right to fill a quarter of the seats in the country’s parliament under the 2008 constitution.

Monday’s coup came on the day the country’s new parliamentary session was about to begin following the Nov. 8, 2020, Myanmar elections. In this election, Suu Kyi’s party won 396 out of 476 seats in parliament while the military’s party only won 33 seats.

According to the Associated Press, military leaders claim that the election was fraudulent and they’ve cited a law in the 2008 constitution that permits the military to seize power in times of national emergency. The Myanmar electoral commission said that the allegations of widespread fraud made by military leaders were not supported by evidence.

Earlier that day, the army’s TV station announced that power had been handed over to commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing. Suu Kyi, Myanmar President Win Myint and other leaders of their National League for Democracy (NLD) party were detained and the BBC reports it is unclear where they are being held.

So far no violence has been reported. After reports emerged that NLD leaders were detained, television, phone, and internet communications in the capital city of Naypyitaw were cut off. The military blocked roads in the city and passenger flights were grounded. Banks also said they were forced to close.

The coup has received international condemnation.

President Biden said the military’s actions were “a direct assault on the country’s transition to democracy and the rule of law” and promised restored sanctions against Myanmar.

“The United States will stand up for democracy wherever it is under attack,” he said in a statement.

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres also said the coup was a “serious blow to democratic reforms” and called for an emergency meeting of the U.S. security council.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the “unlawful imprisonment” of pro-democracy leaders.

“The vote of the people must be respected and civilian leaders released,” he tweeted.

Brian mast Commitment democracy IMPEACHMENT Intelwars Jake Tapper Legs War

Jake Tapper questions rep’s ‘commitment’ to democracy after vet who lost his legs argued against impeachment

CNN anchor Jake Tapper questioned a GOP congressman’s “commitment” to democracy on Wednesday for arguing against impeaching President Donald Trump in a rushed vote, after noting that the representative lost both his legs while fighting overseas for the United States.

What are the details?

During a segment covering debates on the House floor ahead of the vote to impeach Trump for allegedly inciting an insurrection, Tapper told co-host Dana Bash, “Congressman Brian Mast, a Republican from Florida, who lost his legs, by the way, fighting for democracy abroad, although—I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States.”

Rep. Mast, a Purple Heart recipient and veteran of the Afghanistan War, tweeted in response, “I lost two legs for @jaketapper’s right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election.”

In reaction to Tapper’s statement, BlazeTV’s Dave Rubin tweeted, “This might be the most vile thing ever said on cable news. Tapper was CNN’s last hope and he turned out to be the absolute worst.”

Mast, arguing against impeaching Trump, had asked rhetorically on the House floor earlier in the day if any of the people who stormed the Capitol building last week had been brought before the lower to chamber to testify as to “whether they did that because of our president.”

Bash, after promising to share evidence to the contrary, posted a video online showing a protester yelling outside the Capitol, insisting, “We were invited here! We were invited!…We were invited by the president of the United States!”

Mast tweeted after the impeachment vote, “In the debate of this very serious decision to impeach a President, Congress has not held one hearing or asked any questions. Congress cannot make an honest assessment without conducting an honest deliberation!”

The Democrat-led House acted swiftly Wednesday to vote on impeaching Trump in a 232-197 vote that saw ten Republicans vote in favor of the action.

Democrats have pressed for rushing to impeach the president before he leaves office next week, but the GOP-led Senate will not conduct its trial on the charge against Trump until he leaves office next week, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

ANY MINUTE NOW: Has Biden Won – VIOLENCE NEXT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global.

Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do! If these instances mentioned below even closely resemble reality, Biden’s victory lap is premature:

  1. A state stops counting and upon resumption, Biden’s tally surges.
  2. A USPS worker was arrested while bringing three absentee ballots from Canada into the U.S. – claims he took a wrong turn.
  3. Software glitches across the board. By the way, some of these software systems can be hacked online.
  4. Backdated envelopes.

For the sake of democracy and the American way, we hope these prove to be false or over-exaggerated, but we can’t deny that there are many Trump supporters who now doubt the official count.

When Trump tweeted “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT,” it took him four minutes to reach 40K likes. When he tweeted “Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of president. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are now beginning!” he received over 600K likes. These represent probably 10% of the people who genuinely believe this election was not conducted fairly, so, in reality, we believe millions of Americans are now convinced these results to be real.

This may become a legal battle and I’m pretty sure that markets won’t like that in the least.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see above, the media, in our opinion, will begin to report that a massive third wave of hospitalization and death cases has begun. With the elections currently tilting towards Democrats, all fingers will be pointed towards Trump (perhaps globally).

Biden’s security has been greatly enhanced, with a wide no-fly-zone over his home.

Germany has openly condemned President Trump’s behavior as dangerous and within his own party, he is under pressure to concede and to hand over the baton.

I am going to keep you posted on developments, perhaps even on a daily basis, since circumstances are changing so quickly.

For now, let’s recap what we got:

  1. Precious metals enjoyed an historic week of gains.

  1. Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency that we mentioned and highlighted right here in this newsletter when its price was less than $600/coin is now worth $16,000. This represents a 26.6x appreciation!
  2. Societe Generale, a very famous French bank, has calculated that QE programs have suppressed interest rates in the United States by a dramatic number.

This, of course, has served to widen the wealth gap, bring about societal unrest and lead to a debt bubble.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

If bonds were not purchased by the Federal Reserve, they argue, the S&P 500 would be 1,800 points and the NASDAQ 100 would be worth around 5,000 points.

The proof is in the pudding.

  1. Lastly, because of the gain in the price of gold, which appears to have bottomed around $1,860 and silver, which appears to have bottomed just below $23.00, the sector has been recovering and mining shares are up noticeably.

AMERICA VOTES: Are Trump Crusaders CORRECT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Today, America is voting. One year ago, at this time, President Trump was pretty confident that he’d win a 2nd term. After all, tax cuts and major regulatory hurdles were removed. Through a combination of natural trends that were in motion and his administration’s policies, America was booming, economically speaking and the improvement was felt by enough Americans to give Trump a landslide victory.

Covid-19 opened the door for Democrats to re-enter the presidential race, so to speak; it forced Mr. Trump to manage a healthcare crisis, which is obviously not what he really wants to do, as a business-oriented individual. Many millions who weren’t raving Trump fans, but were quite happy with the way their careers and finances were going, were laid-off and now had an excuse to change their tune on the Republican Party.

It’s pretty safe to say that President Trump hates this virus, from a personal perspective. He was riding on the gravy train until it came along and forever changed many aspects of our lives, at least for the next 5-10 years.

The markets have changed as well; the puck has moved towards fiscal stimulus and away from a monetary one. Tens of millions of Millennials have now become actively involved in stocks.

If, up until now, any word uttered from the mouths of Bernanke, Yellen or Powell, caused trillions of dollars to change hands, the next president will have an impact even greater than that. There are new top-trending fund managers; less than 1% of the population has truly realized just how different of a world we are entering.

The markets are now following what Congress does more than it cares for what the Federal Reserve can do. As a child, if you’d gone to Six Flags and went on the same ride a few times, even if it was the best one, the thrill factor had a diminishing effect. Even if there were no lines and you could do it time and again, most kids wouldn’t.

They’d much rather try a brand-new ride, a rollercoaster that they’ve never seen before – one with new colors and a fresh design in another part of the park.

Fiscal stimulus measures like direct deposits, checks to the bank account, and other socio-economic policies, which we will see in the years ahead, will be a critical catalyst for markets. They will be much broader in scope than Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security, and include demographics much younger than retirees.

We believe the U.S. government will act in such a way that inflationary expectations will rise, while the FED will attempt to suppress rates, thus sustaining negative real rates (as we’ve predicted for more than a year), while leaving the nominal bond yield in the positive range.

Trump or Biden; Washington will be fully engaged in MASSIVE DEFICIT SPENDING in this decade and commodity investors will flourish.

Bitcoin Censorship central banking Commodities control speech controlled Crush the Street democracy Donald Trump Dou Casey election experts failures Forecasting gold mining stocks Government Greater Depression Headline News hopes Intelwars Joe Biden Kenneth Ameduri lied to monetary system Scam selection Silver social media giants third world country tracked United States

Doug Casey: “I Wonder If The U.S. Isn’t Devolving Into A 3rd World Country”

In an interview with Kenneth Ameduri of Crush the Street, infamous analyst, and author Doug Casey. Casey didn’t mince words and came down hard on the ruling class and the establishment terrorizing all of us.

Casey begins the interview by explaining that neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden said anything of substance during the recent presidential debates. In fact, he wondered “if the U.S. isn’t devolving into a third world county” as the people put all of their hope and faith in the government on one side or the other.

Casey then touches on the subject of big social media giants and their censorship campaign.  He’s hoping that they [social media] are going to  “cut their own throats” by continuing to centralize power and attempt to control speech. He also makes the good point that without direct and indirect subsidies from the government these social media giants would be midgets.

“The Constitution is a dead letter,” says Casey. “It’s a document that exists, but it’s not observed.” He adds that he’s not a fan of democracy either “It’s two wolves and sheep deciding what to have for dinner,”  he says. “Democracy is mob rule dressed up in a coat and tie.”

Casy’s interview sheds light on the biggest problem we face today: politics. The government has initiated a power grab many have missed and even more people are unaware of. Our future is bleak if we continue down this path. The printing of money is going to be catastrophic, Casey says of our economic situation. We will see the destruction of the dollar.

Because of that, he’s staying away from all stocks, except gold mining stocks.

All of the awakening of the coming “Greater Depression” is forcing people to reevaluate central banking and control. This coming depression will be worse than the unpleasantness of 1929-1946, Casey adds.  And a lot of people are figuring it out and dumping the dollar for gold, silver, and Bitcoin.

Mainstream Media’s Grip On Mind Manipulation & Public Perception Is Slipping

The mainstream media, which has been the mouthpiece for the government puppets who dance for the banking cartel is losing its grip on public perception. Once that goes, so will the power of the government and those elites who are pulling the strings.

This is good news for the future of humanity.  The mainstream media, at the behest of governments, has propagandized information and lies in order to shape perception and keep Americans firmly stuck in the left-right paradigm falsely believing that they have some kind of a choice. Well, the facade is fading away.  The apocalypse or “lifting of the veil” is here.

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

Americans’ trust in the mainstream media to report the news honestly continues to spiral downward. A whopping 86 percent of respondents in a new Knight Foundation/Gallup poll say they see either “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of political bias, toward on side or the other. Mainstream media’s goal has been to give people the illusion that their vote matters making them believe they have a say in how the government is run. Sadly, this has led to the tyranny most Americans are living under today.

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

“Most Americans have lost confidence in the media to deliver the news objectively,” Knight Foundation Senior Vice President Sam Gill said. “This is corrosive for our democracy.” Good. Democracy is nothing more than two wolves and sheep voting on what’s for dinner. No amount of humans should have any rights, whether through voting or otherwise, to control any amount of other humans beings by appointing a master over them. The fact that people are finally realizing this, is going to make for a shaky immediate future, but a great one in the long run.

Manipulating The Masses: Edward Bernays & Why The System Needs Your Compliance

The survey of 20,000 Americans also showed that respondents believe the biased and erroneous reporting is by design. A total of 74 percent believe that media company owners are influencing news coverage, while 54 percent said inaccuracies are reported on purpose. Some 28 percent said reporters make up their stories entirely.

As public distrust goes, the media’s influence diminishes. When their influence diminishes, so does the power of the government, and when that slips, so will the banking cartel’s grip around our necks. We all need to wake up to the prison system we were born into. Being a free-range slave (although that’s even questionable now that the scamdemic seems to have emboldened political parasites to take away the few liberties we had left) still means we are slaves.

We were all born free. We had to be taught to be obedient slaves to the ruling class puppets.

2020 asteroid drills civil unrest Conspiracy Fact and Theory contested election control Coronavirus Coverups democracy destroy documents Donald Trump elitists Emergency Preparedness enslave Event 201 exercise experts Federal Reserve Hoax Intelwars Joe Biden LIES Mainstream media model operation lockstep own the world pandemic Plan plandemic predictive programming Rockefeller rule the world scamdemic ugly politics Voting

Another Secret Model: A Contested 2020 Election

A new model was conducted by a bipartisan group that set out to see what would happen if the 2020 election was contested. The results are nothing short of ugly.

Before anyone says something like “it’s just a model,” I suggest you read Event 201, which modeled a “deadly coronavirus pandemic” and the Rockefeller Foundation’s Operation Lockstep, which is an elitist plan detailing how a pandemic would lead to an authoritarian form of government with total surveillance and the enslavement of every single human being on earth.

Not to mention NASA’s odd asteroid drills that all seem to see Earth getting hit in September of 2020. Perhaps this is all some sick and twisted occultic plan to alert us to what they intend to do to us, and while the media distracts only a few actually take the time to look beyond the veil. 

NASA & FEMA Conducted “Asteroid Impact” Drills For Impact In September of 2020

Don’t worry though. The mainstream media is doing their job to make sure they cover for the elitists and “fact check” anyone who dares to use the actual words and quotes from any of these documents. But sometimes, they let information slip through, and that’s probably some kind of predictive programming.

According to the Boston Globe, on the second Friday in June, a group of political operatives, former government and military officials, and academics quietly convened online for what became a disturbing exercise in the fragility of American democracy. This basically details a scenario in which Donald Trump and republicans contest the election results and will not give up power to Joe Biden.

“All of our scenarios ended in both street-level violence and political impasse,” said Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown law professor and former Defense Department official who co-organized the group known as the Transition Integrity Project. She described what they found in bleak terms: “The law is essentially … it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it.”

“[Trump] doesn’t have to win the election,” said Nils Gilman, a historian who leads research at a think tank called the Berggruen Institute and was an organizer of the exercise. “He just has to create a plausible narrative that he didn’t lose.”

The stage is being set. If you’ve been paying attention, you know elections are just smoke and mirrors anyway designed to give the public the illusion of choice. The Federal Reserve will choose the president as they have for decades and that’s who will win in 2020. If people would understand this simple fact, they could finally direct their attention to those trying to actively rule and enslave them. The information is out there, it’s time to wake up. Time is running out.

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

The games are not meant to be predictive; rather, they are supposed to give people a sense of possible consequences in complex scenarios.

Each scenario involved a different election outcome: An unclear result on Election Day that looked increasingly like a Biden win as more ballots were counted; a clear Biden win in the popular vote and the Electoral College; an Electoral College win for Trump with Biden winning the popular vote by 5 percentage points; and a narrow Electoral College and popular vote victory for Biden. –Boston Globe

The most destructive outcome was an Electoral College win for Trump with Biden winning the popular vote by 5 percentage points. This would be the second election in a row that the democrats would lose in that manner, and the outcome will be massive civil unrest and potentially widespread violence.

1884 acquiescing to power Aldous Huxley Books boot on the human face Censorship control democracy forever free speech freedom George Orwell Government Headline News human dignity human rights Humanity Intelwars liberty LIES power propaganda totalitarian Voting

Orwell & Huxley’s WARNINGS To The World

As George Orwell neared his death, he made one final warning to planet Earth and every human on it. Scarily, we are seeing human beings demand their own enslavement and that of others which was exactly what Orwell said would happen.

The woman interviewing Orwell from his death bed asked if he demonstrated that he had the ability to face some of these unpleasant facts. Orwell replied:

“I think that allowing for the book being after all a parody, something like 1984 could, actually happen. This is the direction the world is going in at the present time. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self basement. The sex instinct will be irradiated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the party (the government/ruling class) but always there will be the intoxication of power.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot, stamping on a human face. Forever.”

As David Icke said, “Stop acquiescing to power.”

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

Orwell’s eerie warning is coming to fruition right before our eyes and even “freedom-loving” Americans are allowing it, even cheering for it to happen. “The moral to be drawn from this dangerous situation is a simple one. Don’t let it happen. It depends on YOU,” Orwell said.

Yet we have people in the “land of the free” calling for martial law and the use of violence to put down dissent. We have violent people stealing, looting, and rioting to protest police violence.  We see people defend the military for firing on innocent people on their own porch.  We have people demanding free speech be eliminated because they don’t like what’s being said. We have people get outraged the second they read something that disagrees with the brainwashed bias in their mind (cognitive dissonance.) And we have a government and military all too ready to go to war with the American people in order to maintain control and eliminate every single right all humans are born with to usher in the New World Order. This is absolutely absurd, but it’s happening right before our eyes.

Aldous Huxley also tried to warn humanity of their fate:

 

Orwell and Huxley both said all basic human rights will be eliminated and slavery will prevail in one way or another. Mostly because humans cannot fathom functioning without a master, or ruler commanding them thanks to the brainwashing that has been highly effective. 

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.” -Aldous Huxley

The solution is to realize what has been done to us.  We all need to wake up to the damage of giving anyone power over anyone else. Giving other humans power over other humans has never worked out well for those being controlled, and democracy has been no salvation. The argument over how big a government should be is one of “just how much slavery will the population tolerate.”

“So this is how liberty dies…with thunderous applause.”

China plans to bypass Hong Kong legislature, impose massive new national security law on city

China announced that it is stepping up its abuse of Hong Kong citizens with a sweeping new national security law that will outlaw “foreign interference” and further quash pro-democracy forces in the once autonomous city.

What happened?

A year ago, pro-democracy forces in Hong Kong began demonstrating against pro-China polices backed by the city’s leadership, especially Chief Executive Carrie Lam. In June, thousands of protesters took to the streets to protest their local government’s efforts to pass a bill that to make it easier for China to extradite fugitives from the city to the mainland.

The protests upset Communist Party leaders in Beijing, so the regime announced Thursday at its annual Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference that it would bypass the Hong Kong legislature and impose an oppressive new national security edict by fiat, the Washington Post reported.

Hong Kong has enjoyed relative autonomy since the British turned it over to Communist China in 1997. But recent and repeated moves by Beijing to suppress civil liberties have led to increasingly disruptive and sometimes violent protests by pro-democracy, pro-West factions.

The communist regime cited the protests as evidence that the sweeping new security law is necessary.

Chinese President Xi Jinping warned in December that his Communist Party would not tolerate challenges to its authority or interference from “external forces,” the New York Times reported. But protests continued until the coronavirus pandemic led world leaders to begin issuing stay-at-home orders.

And a Thursday letter from China’s foreign ministry said, “The opposition in Hong Kong have long colluded with external forces to carry out acts of secession, subversion, infiltration and destruction against the Chinese mainland,” according to the Times.

The law, which Chinese leaders declared is a “direct response to last year’s protests” that were spurred on by “secessionist forces” and outside influence, the Post said, “will ban secession, subversion of state power, foreign interference and terrorism.”

Stanley Ng, a pro-Beijing member of China’s legislature from Hong Kong and long-time proponent of the security law, said the city’s failure to quell the protests only proved that China needed to step in.

“The social unrest last year showed that the Hong Kong government was unable to handle passing [national security legislation] on its own,” Ng said, according to the Post. “Hong Kong’s status will be sacrificed with or without this law if society is unstable due to the protesters’ violence.”

Pro-democracy forces were stunned by the move. From the Post:

[U]nder Xi’s leadership, the Communist Party has encroached on Hong Kong’s autonomy with stunning speed.

“I’m speechless,” said Dennis Kwok, a pro-democracy lawmaker, of the proposed national security legislation. Kwok was singled out for criticism by Beijing and was recently removed from his chairmanship of a key legislative council committee. “This is a complete and total surprise and I think it means the end of one country, two systems.”

Kwok said that the Hong Kong government and Beijing had used the coronavirus pandemic as cover to clamp down on the city.

“When the world is not watching they are killing Hong Kong, killing one country, two systems, and using social distancing rules to keep people from coming out to protest,” he said. “This is the most devastating thing to happen to Hong Kong since the handover.”

After the state announced its plan to implement the new security law, calls went out for protesters to take to the streets of Hong Kong.

“The arms of tyranny have reached Hong Kong,” pro-democracy leader Ted Hui said, according to the Post. “Darker days are coming.”

This move follows a recent trend of anti-democracy abuse.

Earlier this week, pro-China forces within the Hong Kong legislature had pro-democracy lawmakers forcibly removed and blocked from re-entry in order to install pro-communist leadership for a key legislative committee as the body fought over a bill that would criminalize disrespect of the Chinese national anthem.

And last month, pro-Beijing Chief Executive Lam used the coronavirus quarantine to arrest democracy advocates.

Americans authoritarian comply democracy disobey Fear Headline News Intelwars Laws livelihoods order followers rebellion sheep slaves tax cattle tyranny

Judge Napolitano: “Americans MUST STOP Acting Like Sheep!”

Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote an article for the Washington Times titled, “Why Americans Must Stop Actin Like Sheep, and Tell The Government To Take A Hike!”  So many of us have been saying this from the beginning.  They don’t care about us, and it’s up to us to disobey them out of existence.

There are no orders if there are no order followers. But like sheep going to slaughter, Americans line up to obey the very people responsible for mass murder (called war), the theft of the fruits of their labor, and the dumbing down and enslavement of their children.  In a matter of months, Americans have fallen into line like good sheep to obey those we know use the mainstream media as enslavement propaganda.

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

If anyone had suggested that the governors of all 50 states, in varying degrees of severity, would be using police to interfere with personal choices — choices that we and our forebearers have all made without giving a second thought to the preferences of the government — no one would have believed it.

Think for a moment of how you would have reacted to any pre-COVID-19 idea that the police in America — using not the force of opinion but the force of arms — would prevent you from going out of your home, operating your business, jogging in a park, patronizing a restaurant or clothing store, buying a garden hose, going to Mass or church or temple or mosque or even joining a small public gathering of folks who want to protest these prohibitions. –Judge Napolitano, The Washinton Times

The good news is that some people have gotten off their knees and stood up to the tyrants.  The bad news, is there still aren’t enough of us.

If You Want To Be Free, Stop Complying With Tyranny

We have fought wars against tyrants who wanted to tell us how to live. Today, we have elected our masters who are doing just that.

Americans seem to accept the restrictions on our rights to speech, religion, travel, and commercial activities simply because the origin of those restrictions is a popularly elected person. But even an elected government can be tyrannical. –Judge Napolitano, The Washinton Times

As Napolitano says, too many Americans are now afraid of the government.  They fear repercussions if they actually live freely as the sovereign beings they were born to be. It’s time to take some responsibility. If any of us want to be free, we must stop complying with tyranny or line up for the slaughterhouse like good little sheep. It has come to the point that there are no other options.

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

Alan Dershowitz Americans democracy enslavement freedom Harvard professor Headline News Intelwars Jason Goodman majority rules the minority my body my choice rights sheep slaves subjugation tax cattle Trump lawyer tyranny wake up

Top Lawyer Says The Government Has THE POWER To “Plunge a NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM”

A top American lawyer, Alan Dershowitz has shown just what he thinks of the tax cattle, saying the government has the power to “plunge a needle in your arm.” According to Comrade Dershowitz, you have “no right not to be vaccinated.”

Dershowitz, who infamously defended President Donald Trump during his Senate impeachment trial says you have no right to decide what goes into your body. That is for the government to decide. Americans need to wake up, or before we know it, everyone save a few will have “the mark of the beast” in no time.

Speaking with Crowdsource the Truth host Jason Goodman over the weekend, Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said the public’s safety outweighs any private liberty concerns of U.S. citizens who do not wish to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. “Let me put it very clearly, you have no constitutional right to endanger the public and spread disease, even if you disagree,” he said. “You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business.”

In the “land of the free,” you have no rights that the government doesn’t give you, according to Dershowitz. He later says that “this is what democracy is all about.” Meaning that if a majority of the population wants to take your rights and freedom, you have to submit to your slavery.  Democracy has become nothing more than a cruel joke played on people for thousands of years giving them the illusion of choice. When is enough, enough?

EDITOR’S NOTE: Yes, I know the U.S. is “supposed” to be a “Constitutional Republic,” but anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows it hasn’t been for a long time and never will be again. 

If you refuse to comply with mandatory vaccinations, Dershowitz says you will be forced to comply.  “And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.”

The lawyer said that U.S. residents don’t have a right to infect others and that if they wish to opt-out of vaccination, they could be given an alternative in which people rejecting the state mandate could remain in their homes permanently so as not to risk infecting others. “That’s what a democracy is about,” he said. “If the majority of the people agree and support that, for public health measures, you have to be vaccinated, you have to be vaccinated. They should give you an alternative. The alternative is to live in your home, don’t get vaccinated, but never ever leave your home or live in a bubble. But if you want to interact with other people, you cannot become Typhoid Mary. The Constitution doesn’t give you the right to spread your illness to other people.”

The Constitution also doesn’t give the government the right to enslave the public, but that’s exactly what’s happened in a matter of months.  The government is not coming to “save” us.  We are the ones we have been waiting for and the only way this stops is by waking people up to their slavery.

 “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” -Often attributed to Harriet Tubman
