What is the lesson of the last 50 years? That money is free, of course. Fast forward to 2020 and you will find politicians still funding their pet projects with fiat money. As both AOC and Elizabeth Warren have said, you can pay for unlimited amounts of spending (like the Green New Deal) by just printing whatever money you need.

For the last 50 years, we have been off the gold standard and have been using the “petro dollar system.” As a result, we have been paying for our bills with worthless fiat money, and the world has had no choice but to accept our dollars.The problem is that all those dollars that were printed have eroded our living standard as we continue our descent into third-world nation status.

The petro dollar system is evaporating before our very eyes and the dollar is about to be replaced as the world’s reserve currency. What’s more, no one wants to buy our government treasury notes. Can you blame them?  We’re broke, and we’re acting as if we can still print trillions of dollars of fiat money to pay for it all.

In the future, there will be no more helicopter money. Politicians will be forced to find other ways to pay for all of the political pork which means that they will have to significantly raise taxes. Americans are about to get a wake-up call. Most of them have only lived in a world of fiat money. It has never been worthless…until now.

 

“When people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic.”   – Benjamin Franklin

Socialism is much in the news these days. Many of our elected officials are endorsing socialistic ideas such as the Green New Deal. However, socialism runs counter to the ideals of the American Revolution and the culture that ensued for well over 200 years. So, why now?

America can be defined as the “people’s government” as can be seen in the Preamble to the United States Constitution which starts with the words “We the People.” Abraham Lincoln, in his Gettysburg Address, elaborated on that concept with the phrase “Government of the people, by the people, for the people.” So, the American way is one of self-government, with the government being merely an extension of the people.

In socialism, ultimate power vests in the State, and an amorphous State at that. They tell the citizens what rights they can and cannot have. Whereas, the Constitution grants citizens “inalienable rights” which cannot be taken away by the government. Without the Constitution, there would be no protection for minority rights.

One of the appeals of socialism is that it appears that everything is free. I said “appears.” The proponents of the Green New Deal when asked how they were going to pay for the trillions of dollars that would be required to fund their programs said that the government should just print more money. Well, they obviously don’t understand basic economic reality or they think that the public is stupid enough to believe them, take your choice. Printing money is not nearly the same as paying for it. That is, the only money that the government has to pay its bills comes from the tax revenues that it collects.

Now, the why. Changes in political systems are rarely, if ever, about the political system itself.  So, socialism is just an excuse to change our form of government. It’s all about power. As James Carville, a top Democratic Party political strategist, said, “What we need is power! Do you understand? …But look, if no one’s persuadable, then let’s just have the revolution.” Is it possible that Carville views himself as the Che Guevara of the New American Revolution?

 

“I’m seeing what socialism’s like. It’s not only not free. It doesn’t freakin’ work.” – Chris Matthews, former MSNBC news commentator

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

War drums are beating around the world.  As the era of the American Empire comes to a close, other forces are rushing into the vacuum created because of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from around the world.

China has been flexing its muscles recently by illegally expanding its territorial waters into international waters.  Worse, China has violated an international treaty which historically ensured a measure of sovereignty for Hong Kong (resulting in the recent riots in Hong Kong). Now, they have even threatened the sovereignty of Taiwan. In the Middle East, Turkey has ambitions to reestablish an Ottoman Empire in the Middle East, starting with its invasion of Syria. As for Venezuela, they are trying to export their brand of communism throughout the hemisphere.

The U.S. is not becoming isolationists as some have claimed.  Rather, the money necessary to finance such worldly adventures is now beyond our means to deal with. The nation’s “credit card” is maxed out and the dollar is increasingly worthless. The world no longer buys oil with dollars. The petro-dollar system is dead and the American Republic is on life-support, financially speaking.

Even the civil war in America is a reflection of our country’s financial problems, as different groups fight each other to gain the upper hand in deciding what comes next. The general public is totally unaware of the shadow war that is being fought behind the scenes. As usual, the elites want to control, and profit from, any new system.  As usual, the average American will be asked to foot the bill. There are all kinds of slavery and I’m pretty sure that you never considered that you too might be a slave.

 

Epilogue

The nation’s financial problems go back to revolutionary days. The Civil War bankrupted the country resulting in a bailout by foreign bankers. As a result, the nation was “incorporated”   by means of the Act of 1871. As a result, we later wound up with the Federal Reserve and the I.R.S., both of which are not part of the federal government.

The U.S. corporation formed by the Act of 1871 is now bankrupt. Where will the financing for the nation’s trillions of dollars of debt come from?  The shadow war will have to play out in order to get us out of the stalemate that we’re currently in. Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

 

“War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.”
– George Orwell

 

While everyone is glued to the TV watching the riots and the coronavirus lockdowns, the real culprit is getting away with outright larceny.  I’m talking about the Federal Reserve, of course. Yet, very little is being said about the fact that the Federal Reserve is destroying our economy much as they did back in 1929 by engineering the Great Depression.

Why don’t we hear about these things? Well, it’s called censorship. As Brian of HighImpactVlogs said about the increasing censorship on the internet, “Truth is the new hate speech and truth will always be treason in the empire of lies.” Mac Slavo of SHTFplan.com put it this way, “The corporate entity, known as mainstream media, is LITERALLY, the propaganda arm for the military-industrial complex, so they WILL NOT expose lies.”

Lise Kingo, executive director of the UN Global Compact, said that the coronavirus pandemic was “just a fire drill” for what will follow. That is, world governments have committed economic suicide praying at the altar of social distancing, setting the stage for complete government collapse. In the U.S for example, more than 45 million people have filed initial unemployment claims over the last three months.

Kingo should know because the UN is involved in much of the pre-planned chaos that has blanketed the globe. Riots and lockdowns, as bad as they are, is just so much smoke and mirrors. As usual, you need to follow the money and you know who has all the money. The chaos is not primarily about health issues, racism or social activism. By the time people figure this out, it may be too late.

 

Epilogue

The Federal Reserve is planning on dumping/destroying the U.S. dollar in favor of a digital currency. Then, through biometric identification, the Fed will be able to trace every single purchase. Welcome to slavery in the 21st century.

What if I told you that the response to the coronavirus was all a “change of heart?”  That is, as late as January 29, 2020, Dr. Fauci was telling the Today Show that the coronavirus was nothing to worry about. Two weeks later, he said that there would be about two million deaths in this country and that we had to shut it all down. Why the change of heart?  As for the WHO, they based their projections on one man and one study, without confirming the data. Only later, they had a change of heart and said that the data from that study was seriously flawed.

Now, the coronavirus conversation has turned to something referred to as “asymptomatic transmission.” The other day, the WHO said that asymptomatic transmission was very rare. Then, the very next day they turned around and said that the transmission rate could be high as 40%.

The WHO and the CDC are supposedly the experts. However, one day they say one thing, the next they say something else. One can only conclude that they’re either incompetent or lying, or both. One of the reasons you get this flip-flop from the so-called experts is that there are two perspectives in medical science: those doctors that do real research and those that are bought and paid for by big pharma and big government.  It should be obvious, but I’ll let you guess why that is so.

If it wasn’t so tragic, the whole Covid19 response would be laughable.  Masks don’t prevent the spread of Covid19 unless a sick person is walking around in public (which they obviously shouldn’t be). Social distancing is fine, but again, a healthy person is not going to infect anyone.

Of course, people who have the coronavirus should be quarantined if they are sick. The treatment should be no different than the flu, because just like the flu Covid19 is caused by a coronavirus. Did we lockdown the world when the Swine flu hit? No. The Asian flu? No. The Hong Kong Flu? No. And yet we survived, with no lockdowns. Sweden was one of those that survived Covid19 without a lockdown, while the rest of the world panicked and committed economic suicide.

When they eventually write the history of Covid19, how many lives are they going to say resulted from locking down everything? For example, the United Nations warned that “Hundreds of thousands of children could die this year due to the global economic downturn sparked by the coronavirus pandemic and tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the crisis.” Here’s the link to the full article from Reuters:(https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-children-un-idUSKBN21Y2X7. Here’s a couple of other links that you also might find interesting:

No vaccine has ever been created that eradicated a virus. Not ever. One of the reasons is that viruses mutate. Another reason is that we don’t even know what a virus truly is. The experts don’t really know yet they prescribe a treatment anyway. What we do know, though, is that old people and people with underlying medical conditions are the groups that are at risk. The vast majority of the people, however, don’t need to be locked down. The results of past flu pandemics, and Covid19 itself, prove that.

The only cure for a virus is “herd immunity.” You need 7 billion people who are asymptomatic with respect to Covid19. So, when you hear that’s there is a spike somewhere in Covid19 cases you need to realize two things: First, we now have more Covid19 cases in some places because more people are being tested. They always were positive, it’s just that we didn’t know it. Second, more cases means that we are getting closer to “herd immunity.” Only then, will the virus have run its course. Everything else that we do, is just politicians and so-called experts pretending that they are taking action…because that’s what bureaucrats always do.

Besides, they’ll probably have a change of heart.

 

“We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing. They’re following asymptomatic cases. They’re following contacts. And they’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare.”  – Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are three city states that run the world.  You no doubt have heard of them without ever realizing what they really were. These three city states exist inside sovereign countries but are totally separate from them.

The three city states, and the countries where they are located, are as follows:

The Vatican (Italy)

The City of London (England)

The District of Columbia (United States)

Again, the Vatican is not part of Italy. They have their own government, their own laws, their own flags and their own security force (police). The same is true for the City of London, as it is not part of England and for the District of Columbia which is not part of the United States of America.

These three city states have separate functions, as follows:

  • The Vatican is a religious control center.
  • The City of London is located within the city that you would call London, England. It is a one-square mile district which contains the world’s financial power center.
  • The District of Columbia is a military/industrial complex.

At the center of all three city states is an Egyptian obelisk, which represents a tribute to the ancient Egyptian sun god Amen-Ra.

What ties these three city states together is something called The Crown which is a directorate consisting of the some of the most influential people in the world. The British royal family is only a figurehead for The Crown and, furthermore, the British royal family is illegitimate. They are actually from a German royal family.

The world elites have succeeded in keeping this information away from the prying eyes of the general public. It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.

 

Epilogue

Taxes paid by Americans go to the I.R.S. which is a corporation separate and apart from the U.S. government. The I.R.S. remits these taxes to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Both the I.R.S. and the IMF are controlled by The Crown, as is the Federal Reserve (which runs the U.S. banking system). In effect, The Crown rules the world through the three city states.

And you probably thought that we were free, right?

Why are the governors of some states committing economic suicide?  You know, states like New York, Michigan, Illinois and California, in particular.

Politicians are not good at very much of anything except one thing – spending other people’s money. They think that money grows on trees.  If you need some, just crank up the government printing presses. AOC, for one, has said that since the government can print money you can spend as much as you want.

Of course, states can also ask the federal government to bail them out. To them, it matters not that taxpayers of fiscally responsible states would then have to foot the bill for bankrupt states. Regardless, you would eventually run out of other people’s money.

California has got real fiscal problems.  There are 340,000 employees/retirees earning over $100,000 a year in base salary.  Truck drivers make as much as $159,000, lifeguards $365,000 and nurses half a million. Maybe, you would like to have one of those jobs, right?  California spends so much on employee salaries yet they don’t bother to fund their pension liabilities.  As a result, unfunded pension liabilities now total $1 trillion.  That’s trillion, not billion. So, now, California wants a bailout from Uncle Sam (you and me). The thing is that they don’t intend on reducing staffing or cutting back on $100,000 salaries.

You would think that the governors of these states would appreciate that the coronavirus lockdowns have exacerbated their fiscal problems. Thirty million workers have filed initial unemployment claims since the coronavirus crisis began. States’ revenues are sinking like a rock making their fiscal problems that much worse.  Yet, these governors seem to be in no hurry to reopen.  That’s because money grows on trees…and they expect you and me to plant the trees. Just don’t touch those $100,000 salaries, though. They only want to use other people’s money to make their problems go away.

 

“When the desirable jobs are spending other people’s money, reporting on spending other people’s money and lobbying to spend other people’s money then you know that the society is f***ed.”  – Tim Worstall

 

 

Truth is like oil in water.  It always rises to the top. Now, we’re finally hearing the voice of reason even as the mea culpas commence concerning the coronavirus pandemic.

The news headlines tell the story:

Actual data is finally coming in. Even an idiot can see what the statistics plainly tell us. Even the great prognosticator Dr. Fauci finally is admitting to what is now painfully obvious (link – https://dailycaller.com/2020/05/22/fauci-flips-lockdown-coronavirus-irreparable-damage/).  Too bad, it’s all too late. The damage is done. We’ve been had. The sheeple can now start lining up for their mandatory vaccinations.

 

“The best slave is the one who thinks he is free.”  – Johann von Goethe

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WHO has changed its mind about COVID19. Now, they are saying that the lockdowns weren’t necessary after all. They point to Sweden as being the model for how to respond to the coronavirus (i.e. Sweden had no lockdown). Further, recent studies show that the mortality rate is no worse than the flu. Yet, most states have yet to reopen. One obviously has to ask the question why.

For example in Europe, this flu season has actually been milder than some recent previous years, despite COVID19. Hospitals are far from overcrowded and the healthcare system is operating just fine. Yet, they’re on lockdown (still).

For sure if they relax the restrictions, the infection rate will go up. The real question is, though, when does it have to be high enough for a country to commit national economic suicide. Do you know how many people die when you lockdown a country? Was this even a consideration before everyone panicked and overreacted?

For example, did we lockdown everyone when the Asian flu swept the world in 1957? No. How about the Hong Kong Flu in 1968? No. Then, how about H1N1 in 2009? Also, no. Yet, they were all more severe than COVID19. By now, you should be seeing the point. None of this was necessary, and the WHO knew it all along. They caused the panic and now they are trying to back away before they get sued (or shut down), just like what’s happening to China. The name of the game is lie, try to cover it up and then…it’s mea culpa time.

The bottom line is this: If it wasn’t ever necessary to lockdown our nation, why aren’t we just reopening ASAP? You may not like the answer that I’m about to give you but here it is.  Reopening is strictly a political issue, it’s not really about your health. The states that will resist reopening the longest will be states with socialist governments (states like California, Illinois, Michigan, New York and Virginia). For them, you never let a good crisis go to waste, just like Rahm Emanuel said. For them, this crisis was a good time to impose authoritarian controls that they may not even do away with after COVID19 is gone. For them, this is nirvana and they just can’t wait until COVID19 returns which it invariably will.

Even after COVID19 has come and gone, your life may never be the same. Your future may well include mandatory vaccinations, universal basic income and a surveillance state. George Orwell was right except it wasn’t 1984, it’s 2020 (and beyond).

 

Epilogue

Based on a new study, countries like Switzerland and Holland are now sending their kids back to school. Turns out that school-age kids are highly unlikely to get COVID19 and just as unlikely to pass it to someone else.

 

The coronavirus crisis is “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”  – House Majority Whip James Clyburn

 

Even after it has come and gone, the coronavirus effect will significantly affect our future. That is, the world will have to reinvent itself to protect against the next global pandemic. As a result, governments and companies will have to reassess and reorganize to meet the perceived threat.

The two biggest changes brought on by the coronavirus pandemic will be in the areas of politics and commerce, as follows:

Disruptions in supply chains caused by a potential global pandemic, especially of critical products, will force companies and governments to find ways to survive (even in a global pandemic). It will become a necessity for companies to have much shorter supply chains and the goal of governments will be to be self-sufficient. Free trade, to a great extent, will become a thing of the past.

In politics, globalism will not survive, at least not in its present form. Immigration and free trade policies promoted by globalism were an unmitigated disaster during the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, countries will be forced to become more nationalistic in order to survive (the next global pandemic). Governmental reactions to future pandemics will also have to be different. The current situation in Sweden is instructive here. That is, Sweden did not commit national economic suicide by locking down their country. They kept the country open for business.

Note: Sweden has about half the population of New York City, yet has only 1/10 the fatalities from the coronavirus.

The still open question is what will happen in the field of healthcare. The race is currently on to find a vaccine.  A cautionary note is that there is no vaccine that has ever stopped a virus. There is really only one solution to a virus pandemic. It’s called “herd immunity.” Sweden did not observe social distancing and as a result they are going to quickly achieve herd immunity. However, the rest of us will still be exposed to a second wave of COVID19, thanks to Dr. Fauci and the CDC.

Epilogue

Maybe next time, we won’t panic when the WHO cries wolf.  Maybe by then, we will have realized that the WHO is, in reality, a front for globalist interests (primarily Bill Gates and big pharma) as the contributions that fund the WHO show.  Maybe by then, we’ll have tumbled to the fact that vaccines are an instrument of social control, part of a coming police state…  or, mavbe we’ll be just as stupid then as we are now.

“It (the coronavirus pandemic) delivers on a number of long held globalist objectives. A cashless society, mandatory vaccination, universal basic income, a surveillance state, restricted freedom of movement and a complete restructuring of the global economy….”
