The War with China we already lost

When you walk into a Walmart you can pick up any item and 99 out of 100 are going to say “Made in China” somewhere on it. We all know this to be true these days but that isn’t the war that I am referring to. The one that I am more concerned about is the one that even Donald Trump failed to see. While he talked about the deep state and pushed the question of Hillary’s emails there was another looming factor that was hidden behind all of it, our government is own by China, lock, stock, and fucking lock.

I could go back to Nixon opening the flood gates and getting us in bed with a culture most of our government officials will never understand, but let’s keep the evidence to more recent events. During the 1990s American jobs went to Mexico after NAFTA was signed with Canada and Mexico. The ultimate goal was to pump jobs to China, which was the second destination those jobs went to after they stayed in Mexico for a few years. After 9-11 it appears that all hell broke loose. I remember singing up my 403b for a China market portfolio and earned 10% a year plus the company matching amount. My retirement was looking good for a short time. Profits were high and the economy was looking great until 2008. For a decade there was a false sense of security. We were in two wars, people were making less money over time, myself included. Houses were skyrocketing in price for no reason. Then the bubble burst. It was at that time Obama came in to save the day.

While Biden was Vice President, he flew his son Hunter on air force two, to China for a business meeting. Later we would learn that Hunter received a lot of money, drugs, and Chinese hookers while overseas. That isn’t the scary part, when the laptop containing videos of Hunter doing drugs, having sex with underage Chinese prostitutes, and receiving a foot job from his niece, was discovered and reported in the news, it was the major news outlets that suppressed the story from voters during an election. It would be six months later, after Joe Biden was sworn into office, the story of the laptop was admitted to be true and at that point nobody cared. The story isn’t the laptop though, the story is that Biden has business dealings with China through his son. There were the no bid contracts that went to Biden’s brother for multimillion dollar jobs in Iraq. Hunter Biden was on the board of an oil company in Ukraine for no reason, making millions per year and paid $40,000 a month for doing nothing. At one point, the oil company was being investigated by the Ukrainian government and Biden bragged on camera about calling the president of Ukraine to have the prosecuting attorney fired or he would keep international aid from reaching their country. The attorney was fired and aid reached the country afterwards. He stated “there was a quid pro quo.”

Biden isn’t the only slimy POS who is in office at the moment. General Milley admitted that he called Chinese generals before Biden took office to let them know if President Trump decided to attack them, he would call them first to let them know. This is called treason and if we had any kind of court or justice system in our country, he would be standing against a wall waiting to be shot. He was not the only person involved in this story. Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi, asked Milley and other generals to form a coup if Trump decided to attack China or any other country before he was out of office. Pelosi’s personal driver for over a decade is a member of the Chinese Communist Party. In a recent interview Pelosi was asked about the concentration camps for Muslims in China. Her response was that we had to work with them if we were going to fight climate change. No joke, it was okay to exterminate people if they could help with climate change.

House Rep. Eric Swalwell had an ongoing affair with a Chinese Spy nicknamed Bang Bang. He was not forced out of his position in the government, didn’t resigned, and is still allowed to sit on boards and committees involving matters of national security.

The more I look into the election of 2020 the more I have to consider that the position of president was handed to Biden in order to hand America over to the Chinese. While Trump considered the Chinese government to be a bunch of “motherfuckers” General Milley stated that he didn’t consider them to be our enemy. The Pullout from Afghanistan was a benefit to one group and one group only, China. Before the last American plane was out of Kabul a representative from the CCP was in Afghanistan meeting with the new Taliban government. China is looking at 1 trillion dollars of mining ore and rare minerals for their tech operations. While the US was looking at short term gains of opium trade and feeding the heroin trade in the US, China was planning ahead for the future. Arms were left to secure the country. Americans were left behind to be used as hostages, feeding more money to the new Taliban government. The more secure the country becomes the less China has to invest in securing their new source of wealth. This trade deal with Afghanistan could not have come at a better time with the default of Evergrande and other companies in the hundreds of billions. Chinese bonds defaulted 18 billion in the first half of 2021. Evergrande is defaulting on $300 billion Yuan currently and there is no end in sight for their continued downfall. Afghanistan was the money crop they needed and Biden handed it over to them.

Then there is the adoption of the social credit score that China currently has with their citizens. Canada has agreed to implement it in their country and the US is working on doing the same thing by using private businesses to get it started. China became the model for how to run society, not just with how to handle a pandemic, but with everyday living and regulating the lives of citizens.

The current threat against Taiwan has never been greater. Not only is China looking to reclaim Taiwan in the near future but Chinese ships sit off the shore of Alaska with no one in the federal government or the pentagon giving a crap. In the next couple of months expect China to start taking what it wants without anyone stepping in to stop it. The only issue that nobody is addressing is what happens when they come for us?

The news has been a sounding board for the idea of karma lately. 2020 was a crap year and it appears to have set the stage for even bigger disappointments, violence, and death. While some of these stories sound like the plots to cheap soap operas, others are straight out of Tom Clancy novels.

On the romance front it would appear that governor Gretchen Whitmer had her heart broken when she requested more vaccines for her state of Michigan only to be declined and told to lockdown again instead. Only a few months ago she had guaranteed the electoral votes of the state for Biden during the election. In return she has received no help or special privileges. These days I picture the stupid look on her face as she thinks to herself, he told me he loved me. You get what you pay for.

Onto the Ukraine and Biden front, the same country that Hunter Biden was given a cushy job is about to be invaded by Russia and they don’t appear to care about US involvement. Not only did Ukraine make the mistake of catering to the Biden family but they had the misfortune of having a man almost 80 years old elected into office. Over on the Chinese front, another country Hunter Biden received money from, there are 200+ ships off the coast of Taiwan and they don’t care about the US being involved. These situations have been simmering for the last four years and as soon as the administration is changed these two countries hit the “Go” button and prepare for war. You get what you pay for.

Riots erupted in Minneapolis again after a man was shot by a cop during a traffic stop. Stores are looted and the police chief resigned. The police were defunded after a voted and later abolished entirely. Crime went up and even with the mismanagement of the twin cities the state decided to vote more democrats in along with Biden and Harris. Now we have more riots and looting, the city can’t hire any cops for work, and people are moving out in droves. You get what you pay for.

People are dying from the Covid-19 vaccines and we don’t know the extent of it. The vaccines were pushed through without proper testing and now we are learning they can cause blood clots. Of course, I was covering this back in January when they said there was no link to the deaths of people two weeks after receiving the shot. Now there are 6 confirmed women with blood clots with one dead. This also ignores the deaths in retirement homes, the doctor in Florida that died, and Hank Aaron who also died less than two weeks after receiving the shot. Add in others that are not documented and I guessing we are in the thousands for people who have died from the vaccine. During the 4-14-2021 episode of the Tim Pool podcast a super chat added that their uncle died from a blood clot after receiving the shot. There are more out there that we are not supposed to know about. You get what you pay for.

I could go on about the great many things that have made me laugh lately but the list is too long. A few honorable mentions include the coming tax hike from Biden, pulling troops out of Afghanistan and letting the Taliban and Al Qaeda move back in after their vacation in Pakistan for the last 20 years, the news media losing their viewers, and the Kardashians buying their own doomsday bunker. If that doesn’t tell you something I don’t know what will. If you are not paying attention I guess you get what you pay for.

The Great Reset: Contact tracing, contact tracking and surveillance

“The most effective form of tracking or tracing is obviously the one powered by technology: it not only allows backtracking of all the contacts with whom the user of a mobile phone has been in touch. But also tracking the user’s real time movements, which in turn affords the possibility to better enforce a lockdown and to warn other mobile users in the proximity of the carrier that they have been exposed to someone infected.” Pages 160-161.

Let’s be honest here, for years now the NSA has been doing what is described up above. The recent shooter in Boulder Colorado was on the FBI watch list and was able to buy an AR-15 and shoot ten people six days later. I know that this suddenly changed from pandemic to gun control, but hear me out. Just like the failure of stopping a mass shooting on behalf of the FBI, the CDC will not be able to stop the spread of a pandemic by following every citizen digitally. This section talks about proximity but it does not discuss the usual method that a virus is spread, droplet. The CDC starts to look into patient zero and finds that they were on a train for thirty minutes returning home from work. There were a dozen other people on the car. But let’s say this person had a disease like Ebola which is spread through body fluids. Patient zero sneezes into his hand, puts his hand on a rail before leaving, and exits the train car. None of the other passengers touched that hand rail but yet according to this paragraph those are the ones who will be contacted and put into isolation even though they are not at risk. Meanwhile, several people board the train over the next hour, touching the handrail, following by their eyes, nose, mouth, biting their finger nails, etc. now you have infected people and nobody will know until they start to show symptoms. Digital surveillance is a nightmare waiting to happen and we already saw what can happen when the wrong people are using it like in China.

The Risk of Dystopia

“As the last few pages have exposed beyond a reasonable doubt, the pandemic could open an era of active health surveillance made possible by location-detecting smartphones, facial-recognition cameras and other technologies that identify sources of infection and track the spread of a disease in quasi real time.” Page 168.

To be fair this section of the book sounded like a general warning of what could happen if policies are put into place and expanded beyond what is considered safe for society. It is difficult to know if this was added as an insurance policy against what will likely happen so that the authors can say “we warned you” instead of “this is what we wanted.” This chapter maps out what could happen if surveillance is taken to new extremes. While the book focuses on the spread of diseases in the near future it is not difficult to see this same technology being used to control the population in regard to climate change, social justice, or pollution. Could we receive warnings via cell phone saying that our stop to the local grocery store was not justified because we didn’t buy enough to warrant the trip and the carbon emissions created? Maybe our cellphone hears us using a word that is no longer allowed even though it was said in the privacy of your own home and now you have to pay a tax or a fine for saying it. In China we are already seeing trash cans that monitor how much food is being thrown away and penalizing these people for wasting food.

The people who implement these policies don’t think they are creating a dystopia. Nobody in history ever thought they were making the world worse than it was before. Stalin thought that he had created paradise but in doing so it was against the law to criticize the new society that he had created. Mao thought that he was standing up for the little guy while invading Tibet, changing the social structure, outlawing any symbols of the “old way” and in the end millions of people died. None of these people thought they were doing more harm than good. In the future, will people look back at those implementing the Great Reset and wonder how we could have gotten things so wrong by following a policy that will, in the end, kill billions of people, for what is considered, the great good?

There are two movements that are happening at the moment. One pushes the ability to monitor the public through cell phones that the majority of people own. The other is looking at using less or no technology in order to save the planet. The mostly peaceful anti-technology protestor Theodore Kaczynski wrote a handful of books about technological slavery and an anti tech revolution. In the last year Greta Thunberg, the now 18-year-old environmental activist, has been writing Kaczynski trying to figure out a way to push an anti-tech agenda in order to save the planet. If people starting tossing their cell phones aside and start to live a life with less where does that leave the CDC with contact tracing and monitoring the public? I have to say that this is not such a bad idea, minus the mail bombs and killing innocent people. The FDA is in the process of requiring farmers to have GPS coordinance for all of their crops in order to sell their product, but where does that leave the Amish? There are still large populations of people who do not participate in the modern world and I am happy to see that they are there. It’s a control group in a scientific sense of the word. During Covid-19 the Amish have refused to wear mask because they believe that only sinners can catch the disease. We have not seen any numbers for the infection rate of the Amish during the pandemic. These people do not own cell phones or travel very far from their homes, but they still interact with the general public through trade. Furniture stores and grocery stores remained open and yet we did not hear about anyone in the Amish community contracting Covid-19. In a place as rural and remote as Amish community how does the CDC do their job in contact tracing and isolating the disease? Or do they not care?

The Great Reset: globalization and nationalism part 2

“There can not be a lasting recovery without a global strategic framework of governance.” Page 113.

“Put bluntly, we live in a world in which nobody is really in charge.” Page 114.

If this book is supposed to make an argument for a one world government then they are not doing a good job. When I look at the failures of the last year, the tens of thousands of dead at the hands of people who are praised for doing the “right thing,” and how other states and countries breezed through the pandemic by not changing anything in their society I have to wonder why we would encourage a system where one idiot thinks they know best and how many people would die from their mistakes? It is because of the lack of unified rule that I have some confidence that we will move past this depressing period of time. As I write this, Texas is completely open with no restrictions on its population. Mississippi no longer requires mask. Florida is opening up along with California. The list of states continues to grow and the Federal government couldn’t be more pissed off about it. The moment that Texas announced they were done with lockdowns the flood gates opened for everyone else to follow suite.

The phrase “nobody is really in charge” is inaccurate to say the least.

“This failure is not the WHO’s fault. The UN agency is merely the symptom, not the cause, of global governance failure.” Page 118.

The WHO is a failure and continues to be a failure, unable to function outside of the prying eyes of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), the results that we have seen are pathetic at best. The WHO was not allowed in China until the start of 2021, more than 9 months after the initial outbreak in Wuhan. Even when they did go to Wuhan the WHO did not go to the infectious disease lab that many experts speculate the virus came from. When the WHO left Wuhan, they said that their data was inconclusive and that they could not say China was the source of the virus. This whole process is absurd, try to figure out what happened at a crime scene 9 months after it happened and billions of people have moved through the area destroying any and all evidence.

To say that nobody is in charge ignores the obvious group running the world right now behind the scene, China. The main financial support for the WHO is China. The official story behind Covid-19 was written by China and handed over to the WHO. Any failures in global governance that Klaus Schwab has an issue with he can take up with China. China refused to reveal that the virus was contagious when they knew that it was. China refused to let the WHO into Wuhan when the outbreak started. China said that the virus was not spread person to person and the WHO repeated it as if it was a fact. It wasn’t until the virus had passed borders into Europe and North America that the WHO finally said we were in a pandemic. We had to wait for the obvious to happen before people would react.

A group of men wearing mask park a car outside your bank. They step out carrying guns in their hands. The teller asks you, the manager if she should call the cops. “No, its fine it’s not a robbery.” The men shoot the guard outside. “And now?” she asks. “they aren’t robbing the back.” The doors open and one of the men shoots the ceiling. “And now?” You look around realize that the robbery is happening but now its too late. The world watched as the virus spread but the picture was always developed two weeks after it was taken. Symptoms start to show after 14 days of contracting the virus. Once you have your first confirmed case the virus has been spreading for two weeks and nobody knew. In a global economy and a global system waiting for confirmed cases was the dumbest policy and only ensured that the virus would spread and kill enabling inhumane policies like the great reset. The failure of dealing with the pandemic starts at the top including the UN, the World Economic Forum, the EU, and the WHO. Had it not been for the political situation in the US things might have been different except when the borders were closed a certain party on the left called the president at the time a xenophobe and a racist. The stopping of a virus that could have had a high mortality rate was not a priority for some people until it worked for their advantage. Every country has their political problems, their social problems, and their economic problems. A global government is not going to magically solve these problems and work for every culture on the planet. To try to implement a system of one rule government will cause a backlash of violence. To really look at what Schwab is suggesting I have to ask if this is any different from the Spanish coming to the now world or the British pushing their rule over other lands like India for example. Why is the idea of the Great Reset something that everyone should or needs to follow?

The US needs to be a lifeboat for the rest of the world. The current administration is set on following the Great Reset regardless of how the public, who “elected” them, thinks about it. On a positive note, we have a constitution and the idea of state’s rights. For Texas and others to no longer follow the CDC or the WHO for Covid-19 protocol is a positive sign for where this program might end up, in the trash. The more states refuse to follow the guidelines of the federal government the more the public can see which policies work and which ones don’t. when given the option of having less freedom after a year of lockdowns or being open and returning to normal the answer is obvious. That is what the Biden administration fears the most, losing control of a public who were following pandemic guidelines. If people no longer fear the virus how will they follow guidelines to solve climate change or systemic racism? There is a long list of no existent problems that the left what’s you to worry about but when they create the problem and only they have the answer to the problem its like any other religion. You enter wanting answers to something, you are given a certain truth and then spend your time trying to spread the word and fighting to make the world a better place in that image only to learn later that you are the new asshole of the world making things worse for people, not better. Nobody likes a new convert to a religion and the religion of social justice has many new coverts that are pissing people off across the globe. There is hope. More people are saying “no.” the word is getting out about these clowns and their weird ideology. The people who scream about racism are finally being called out as the racist they admit to being. The damage is done and while BLM was marching through the streets setting fires to businesses and killing people the supporters in officer had Covid-19 positive patients put into nursing homes killing the elderly by the tens of thousands. Nobody marched in the streets about these policies. The last thing that the US needs to do right now is take orders from some one world government of people who are not elected and obviously know less than the people who should be running things. We can’t keep track of the criminals that are currently running the country, why would we trust the criminals running a world government?

Covid-19: a world of stupid

I took my daughter to the mall the other day. The family drove to Traverse city and while my wife shopped at the Target store, I decided our oldest daughter should see species that is going extinct, the mall. I wanted to see how many stores had closed and house soon the final death throws would be seen in this particular animal. Target was crowded, social distancing, optional.

In the mall, there was vast space to move and breathe. Shops had signs posted about the number limit on customers. Victoria’s Secret had a robe across their mall entrance telling customers to use the outside entrance to shop. The real kicker came when we reached the end of the mall where a small playground was set up. The entrance was closed off with a gate and signs were posted the entire 360 degrees around it saying it was closed due to Michigan orders from the Governor. My daughter climbed over the wall and started to make her way to the fiberglass tree with a slide. Two middle aged, beer gutted, old men watched from tables as my daughter defied orders like the rebel that she is. She was the only kid in eye sight, who was she harming? As I noticed more people watching I called her over and pulled her out to hear a wail and scream as she yelled that she wanted to play on the tree. I explained to her that the lady in charge was an asshole and that she couldn’t play on it because of that.

We made our way to the food court where there was a different Covid-19 world happening. Electric cars that kids ride in were open. The type that rocks back and forth making a kid think they are driving, for a dollar a ride you could do that. The photo booths to take stupid pictures that you regret later, those were open. The carousel that you could ride for a dollar, turns out that was open as well. The carts that you could rent to haul your kid around it, parked right in front of the security office, for some reason that was shut down. A sign was posted over the paying system that they could not be used. However, before leaving, I spotted a woman pushing her kid through the mall with one of those carts. Either she could not read or did not give a crap. Actually, thinking about it now, good for you lady, you keep on with your bad self.

As I waited for my wife, Zoey climbed all over the cars pretending to drive. Other kids came over and they chatted from their cars like adults at the stop light. When I bought some food from the Chinese place, I had trouble finding a table that wasn’t covered in food and muck. The Carousel was open after our meal and Zoey was able to ride on a horse. Each horse was marked as used and wiped down afterwards. Beside American Eagle who took customer’s temperatures before entering, this was the only part of the mall following protocol. Zoey threw a fit when the ride was over and we waited in the entrance for my wife.

Not once did the cars get wiped down while we were in the food court. None of the photo booths were cleaned after they were used. Security walked past people not wearing mask and said nothing. The mall was a strange bizzarro world of backwards policy and lack of procedure that left my head hurting.

One of our first stops in the mall was the arcade. This was a little corner shop with two entrances. Both of them had signs asking people to scan their phones in before entering for contact tracing incase there was an outbreak. I ignored it and walked inside. Zoey rode on the small carousel that was in there, pretended to play Pacman and we walked out not seeing another person in the area.

My only regret upon leaving was not letting her play on that fiberglass tree. I have read the stories about dads being arrested for playing at a park with their kids. What was the worse that could happen? We get kicked out?  If you asked me six months ago if covid-19 was a hoax I would have laughed and said those people are stupid. Now, with hearing the people in charge consistently say or do things that under mind everything they have been saying about the virus I have to consider, maybe all of this is just a hoax for an evil purpose.

Lately there has been talk about how the flu virus has somehow disappeared this season. I call complete BS on that. Hospitals have not been testing for it and anyone who has flu like symptoms are diagnosed with Covid-19 even without a test being done. Lab technicians have reported finding Strains A and B of the Flu in Covid-19 test but not the Coronavirus that had been confirmed before. Dr. Fauci has been pushing the idea of double masking not because of the science but because it is “common sense.” Political leaders hold large gathers at places like the French Laundry spending hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars doing the same thing no one else has been allowed to do for the past year. Then we learn that the WHO discovered that the virus did not originate in China but they also never checked out the lab that some people question the virus might have escaped from. When it comes to Covid-19 none of the dots line up. We are looking at different puzzles from different books and no matter how you over lap them nothing connects. If this is a hoax it is the worse thought out, brainless attempt and changing society that they could have come up with. After all the back and forth, all the denial, lack of confirmation about anything I can only conclude that this whole ordeal is based on BS. It’s only common sense and if the doctor in charge can create policy using common sense over science why can’t the rest of us?

The Great Reset: Societal Reset, Part 2

Social Unrest

“If the crisis goes on for long, unemployment could hit 20-30 per cent while economies could contract by 20-30 per cent … there will be no recovery. There will be social unrest. There will be violence. There will be socio-economic consequences: dramatic unemployment. Citizens will suffer dramatically: some will die, others will feel awful.” Jacob Wallenberg, Swedish industrialist, March 2020. Pages 85-86.

This opening statement appears to be pretty obvious considering there are riots happening in the Netherlands in opposition to lockdowns. More protest sprung up with businesses opening their doors defying orders to stay closed. Mask mandates go unenforced in some areas while the federal government pushes for double mask wearing. As I write this (2-19-2021), the US unemployment rate is at 6.3%, far from the 20-30% projected. However, as policies in the United States change and with the not too distance future bringing automation into the scene, we may see a rise of unemployment after the pandemic is over. The violence we are seeing today is not from unemployment its from the lack of liberty and freedom that the public expects and demands from the government. When security goes to far for too long you will see a backlash against those who claim to be protecting the public. At what point does the government resemble an abusive husband more than a police officer patrolling the streets?

“Over the past six years, nearly 100 African Americans have died in police custody, but it took the killing of George Floyd to trigger a national uprising.” Page 86.

This statement overall, is false. The 100 African Americans mentioned were not in police custody.  Most of them were armed while confronting police. In the cases of those who were not armed the police were investigated, brought up on charges and sent to prison if found guilty of wrongdoing. As for the case of George Floyd several factors are left out in this chapter regarding the large amounts of methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroine in his system. Then there was the portion of the video that was removed for 6 months showing Floyd demanding that officers hold him on the ground. The knee on the neck was a properly performed technique according to the standards of the police department that trained them to do it. As for BLM being a movement caused by a pandemic, that fails to be seen. BLM is an organization run by black women for the removal of men from society. Their platform on their website states they want to dissolve the nuclear family. The only purpose George Floyd served was as an excuse to push their communist agenda into American society under the disguise of equity and equality. Add the fact that it was an election year and that we haven’t heard a peep from BLM since Biden became president and I think the “uprising” argument remains dead in the water. The last time we heard from BLM was their disappointment that they were not invited to talks with the Biden Harris administration after their alleged election victory. Never underestimate the power and stupidity of useful idiots. The only way that Covid-19 became a factor during the riots as the socially acceptable ability for a person to wear a face mask in public and not be identified while committing a crime. The riots, till this day, remain the most eye-opening aspect of these lockdowns. A man throwing a ball with his daughter in a park will be arrested for not adhering to lockdown orders. Wear a mask, go out at night, break windows, burn down a few buildings, scream black lives matter and you will be released in the morning by the district attorney with no charges filed. If the riots showed us anything, it wasn’t about racial inequality, it was that the lockdowns didn’t matter.

“Social unrest negatively affects both economic and social welfare, but it is essential to emphasize that we are not powerless in the face of potential social unrest, for the simple reason that governments and to a lesser extent companies and other organizations can prepare to mitigate the risk by enacting the right policies. The greatest underlying cause of social unrest is inequality. The policy tools to fight unacceptable levels of inequality do exist and they often lie in the hands of governments.” Page 88-89.

If you want to fight inequality do not give the power to the government. If you want to look at the history of social unrest you don’t have to look any further than the drug war waged by the federal government since the 1970s, the crack epidemic of the 1980s, The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, or the wall street bail out of 2009. We could go back further, maybe look at the LA riots of 1992. None of these were caused by inequality. The problems didn’t spring up due to unfair hiring practices, or bad schools. Should we really be looking to the same government that pumped crack cocaine into the streets, jailed black men at an alarming rate, left the public to rot while handing over hundreds of billions of dollars to Wall Street, that is the government that Schwab wants to fix the problem of inequality? The same government that is unable to hand out a check to the public without billions going to dead people, foreign citizens, and fraud. The government is unable to balance a check book, why would we trust them with setting things right in the world? According to the current administration the concentration camps in China are okay because they have a different culture from us. I do believe that the German’s had a different culture from the US before WWII but maybe our standards have changed since then. The only thing the government has proven themselves good at its mismanagement of funds and making bad decisions. If Schwab thinks inequality is bad now, wait until the government steps in to fix it, he hasn’t seen nothing yet.

Politics: Hunter Biden released a book this month called Beautiful Things. It immediately hit #1 in sales in the Chinese market. Meanwhile the reports of Hunter receiving a “foot job” by his niece in the notorious laptop videos has been proven false. It turns out that while she may have resembled his niece, she was in fact just a prostitute.

A New York times article “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign that Saved the 2020 Election” was published on Feb 4th detailing the cabal of political elites and corporations that worked together to make sure Biden won the election.

Economics: While most countries reported a loss of GDP growth in 2020, China still reported a gain at the end of the year.

The US economy struggles to recover with more jobs being lost in the service industry. In the UK the economy appears to be recovering at a fast rate with the roll out of the vaccine. State and federal governments are now pursuing Covid fraudsters who received unemployment and Covid loans during the pandemic. The UK government is investigating small businesses who took loans before closing their doors. In Michigan, the state is now demanding payments of unemployment back from people who were unemployed due to government shutdowns.

Food: World food prices have climbed to a six-year high. According to the UN cereals, vegetable oils and sugar have climbed 4.3% since December of 2020 reaching prices not seen since 2014. Cereal prices have risen 7.1% monthly mostly due to a lack of north American corn. Maize is now up 11.2% and is 42.3% higher than the January 2020 level.

Wheat is expected to level out in price when Russia’s exports double in March flooding the market. Vegetable oil is expected to rise from the lack of soy produced in 2020 and in the southern hemisphere.

Self-defense: The purge continues as an NYPD police officer is under disiplinary action for wearing “Trump related” badges on a tactical vest. One badge was the Punisher skull with trump hair on top, the second said “make enforcement great again” with an outline of Trump’s head. The NYPD said they are investigating white supremacy in their organization. NYPD policy states that officers are not allowed to wear political paraphernalia while on duty. This rule appears to not apply when ordered to protect political signs and banners such as the BLM murals in NYC.

Country music star Morgan Wallen is being cancelled for partying during a night out with his friends. A few months back Morgan was cancelled as the musical guest on SNL after there were photos of him found posing in selfies and kissing random women at a bar. His performance was cancelled and Jack White replaced him for the appearance. Currently Morgan Wallen is #1 on the country music charts and in the Billboard top 100. After a long night of drinking, Morgan and his friends pulled up to Morgan’s Nashville home. Morgan stumbled to his house before turning around and telling his friends to “take care of that n-word” referring to one of his friends in the group. The friends replied “we’ll take care of this n-word” and Morgan when into the house. The context of the word is obviously in a friendly manner but the n-word was used and Morgan is not black. Since the video has been released, by the neighbors of Morgan, his record deal has been cancelled, his appearance at the CMA is cancelled, and all endorsements have been cancelled.

Editorial: The purge is alive a well in the United States, or should I say Un-United States? People are losing their jobs because of their political ideas, media outlets debate the justification for using drone strikes on US citizens on US soil, Trump voters are compared to Al Qaeda, and Bank of America bypassed the 4th amendment by handing over information to the FBI on customers who might have been at the Trump rally on Jan 6th. Maybe the Purge isn’t the best analogy of what is happening. If you happen to be a libertarian The Hunt might be more applicable. Keep in mind that even Libertarians are on the Dem chopping block since they don’t agree with the Woke philosophy of identity politics now running rampant in the country. If we have learned anything from 2020 its do not underestimate how crazy things can get. HR 127 continues to come back into the news and most people assume that it will never pass. Have we already forgotten Kamala Harris’s famous quote? “I think we could do this through Executive order” during the first Democratic debate. As for the use of deadly force against US citizens, it wasn’t that long ago that a man named Christopher Dorner was being hunted by the LAPD after killing the daughter of the chief of police, allegedly. There was no trial. The investigation was limited to what the media reported at the time. The last post Dorner put on his Facebook page had been tampered with, content added in the last half to make him appear crazy. He was an LAPD officer, former military, war veteran, impeccable record and his career was ruined for turning in a training officer for abusing a suspect in her custody. What he didn’t know was that the female officer he turned in had an affair with the chief of police while they were partners on patrol years before. His career was ruined and left unemployed. During the manhunt for Dorner there were rumors that the Obama administration had authorized the use of drones to help in the manhunt and possibly take the suspect “out.” This was denied later. Like Waco, the cabin Dorner was in was set on fire and he burned alive. He was unarmed, having dumped his firearms into a dumpster on camera while on the run. The weapons found in the remains of the cabin were display models that did not have any ammo available for them.

We have to assume that there is a good possibility that HR127 could be passed, the use of anti-terrorist tactics could be used on US citizens, and that the media and social media will be used to push public opinion on who is a villain and who is not. Too many times in our past the court was bypassed and the truth of a situation had not been revealed to cover the mistakes of the people in charge. In the past it could be said that the mistakes were made by educated people who made a poor decision. If there is one thing I know about SJWs is that they are not intelligent and they tend to made poor choices out of fear for no reason.

The world prepares for war

https://www.businessinsider.com/us-bombers-persian-gulf-deterrence-irran-2021-1

China is ramping up their aggression towards Taiwan. In the last years reports have been confirmed that China built a replica of the Taiwanese capital and staged practice runs on taking control of it. President Xi told soldiers in the Chinese army to say goodbye to their family and friends, war is coming soon. On January 29, 2021 13 Chinese military aircraft including 6 bombers simulated an attack on the USS Theodore Roosevelt, an aircraft carrier in the region. Radio calls were intercepted giving the order and aircraft were viewed on radar completing the mission.

On January 27 the Biden administration sent Bombers into the Persian gulf as a sign of force against Iran. a year ago a top general in the Iranian military was killed in a drone attack. Iran has swore revenge for the assassination that took place at the Baghdad airport in 2020. Iran has refused to work with the Biden administration, swearing to never sign another nuclear deal and demands sanctions be lifted from their country.

From the Cabin

1-19-2021 Vol 1 Issue 2

Politics: Only a few days before the presidential election in Washington DC the FBI is now trying to vet the 25,000 national guard troops stationed in DC. Fear has risen that a person or group within the national guard might try to commit a terrorist attack during the election. While vetting FBI agents during the hiring process is a long and involved investigation, the current vetting is based on the loyalty towards the current president Donald Trump.

The House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Trump a second time. He is currently the only president to be impeached twice. The senate has not voted for the impeachment yet and if it passes the hearing will be scheduled for after the inauguration to keep Trump from running for president again in 2024.

Economics: A run on freezers for food storage has increased the price for copper to $10,000 a ton, a sharp spike from previously lower prices. Fear of food shortages are raising the demand for food storage abilities in the United States.

Gold: $1840.20 troy ounce

Silver: $25.26 troy ounce

Platinum: $1,091.20 troy ounce

Copper: $3.60 Pound

US National Debt $27,810,170,000,000

Debt per citizen: $84,025

 Food: Post Brexit UK is not seeing food disappearing from super market shelves as the importing of goods has been shut down from Europe and other parts of the world due to Covid-19. During 2020 the UK shut down several farms from Covid-19 infections limiting the production of food throughout the country. During a normal year the island country of the United Kingdom can produce for 10 million people. The current population is 66.65 million. Without food being imported the UK will run out of any food within a few weeks.

Chaos and Riots have broken out in China from the rising cost and limited supply of food. The Chinese government have tripled their import of Corn from the US, going from 7m tonnes to 22 m tonnes by the end of 2020. The higher price of rice has made things difficult for the Chinese as well since the cost of a freighter has doubled and when rice is ordered from other countries it takes 3-4 months for the order to arrive.

The import and export of good have been halted for many countries. Russia shut down the export of all grains raising the prices on the world market. The hopes of food joining the market from South America were crushed after a season long drought from a La Nina that kept rain from falling on the fields.

While commodities prices around the world have risen, they have remained the same in the US while China buys whatever is available on the market. Only after the Department of Agriculture released information that Soy numbers were much lower that they originally anticipated the price of soy did not rise a substantial amount.

Due to the coming shortage of food in China the government has implemented food waste laws punishing people with huge fines for buying too much food or throwing away any food. Dumpsters are under the surveillance of cameras and keep track of who is throwing items away and how much. Face identification software is being used for the documentation of who is throwing away food.

Self-defense: Many states at the moment are starting the year with new gun bills being brought before local governments. Texas has 16 bills, ranging from Castle Doctrine changes to the limited size of magazines. New York state is trying to make it illegal for citizens to own bullet proof vests. On the agenda for the Biden administration is making the online sale of ammo illegal and the banning of firearms. As Kamala Harris said during a presidential debate, “I don’t understand why we can’t do this through Executive order.” Biden did reply, “it’s because we have a constitution.” But this doesn’t mean it will actually be followed during his administration.

In Germany, the government is building detention centers, camps, for people who violate the Covid-19 lockdown orders. If someone has violated the current orders dictated by the state they will be arrested and taken to these centers. It isn’t clear if this is to quarantine the individual for 2 weeks to see if they are infected or to re-educate the individual to follow the rules.

Editorial: While starting this newsletter I have gone back into my library and pulled out a few documentaries about collapse. There is the informative book by Jared Diamond that does a great job of outlining how societies collapse. Then I re-read Michael Ruppert’s book Collapse.

Years later, it’s obvious that Ruppert was ahead of his time, knowing what was to come. Back then I thought there was a chance to change things and maybe prevent what was to come. These days I accept where things are going and try to do little things to make sure myself and my family can learn to adapt and get through this.

At the local dollar store I found a rack of vegetable seeds, 4 for $1. I picked up several packs and added them to the seed bank I have accumulated over the years. A local discount food outlet had boxes of MREs for $12. I bought 6 boxes and stored them away just in case. Plans are coming along for the remodeling and repairs for the root cellar attached to the house. Compost bins slowly fill up over the winter months to create top soil for the garden to come.

When you grow to accept that there is nothing you can do to change what is happening all over the world there is some comfort in taking command of your own journey and trying to make it as pain free as possible. When pain does come your way learn from it the best you can.
