Brandon Smith: How States And Communities Can Fight Back Against Biden’s COVID Tyranny

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.us,

A war is coming. I have heard it argued that this war must be avoided; that it is “exactly what the establishment wants.” I disagree. I think globalists like those at the World Economic Forum certainly want enough chaos to provide cover for the implementation of their global “Reset” agenda, but they don’t want a full blown rebellion. They only want events in which the outcome is controllable or predictable – They do not want a massive organized resistance that might surprise them.

Ultimately it doesn’t matter because the war is already at our doorstep. A person has two choices: Fight or be enslaved. There is no third option. There is no walking away. There is no hiding from it and there is no passive solution to it.

Joe Biden’s recent declaration of a federal level nationwide vaccine mandate has all but ensured that conflict is inevitable. Why?  Because it is the first major step towards a two-tier society in which the unvaxxed are cut out of the economy. The next step? Forced vaccinations under threat of fines and imprisonment, the threat of confiscation of one’s children, or vaccination at the barrel of a gun. (more…)

ZeroHedge: PLA Military ‘On Alert’ As US Carrier For 1st Time Launches F-35 Stealth Jets In South China Sea

PLA Military ‘On Alert’ As US Carrier For 1st Time Launches F-35 Stealth Jets In South China Sea

For the first time ever a US Navy aircraft carrier with F-35 stealth fighters on board has entered the South China Sea this week. The Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group entered the contested waters near China days ago, and subsequently the Navy released a photo of an F-35 launching from the Carl Vinson.

This comes as the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Benfold is gaining most attention from Beijing after it sailed near Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands, which is an area long claimed by China.

Business Insider details of the new stealth fighter carrier deployment, “The F-35A is a variant built for the Air Force. The F-35B, mainly used by the Marine Corps, is designed to fight from amphibious assault ships. And the C variant is designed to operate aboard US Navy carriers. It can carry more fuel and weaponry and is built for catapult launches and fly-in arrestments.”

A subsequent report in Chinese state mouthpiece Global Times indicated that the presence of both the Benfold and stealth jet carrying Vinson carrier has put the PLA military on ‘high alert’.

Global Times wrote: “As the first carrier to get the F-35C, the USS Carl Vinson went straight to the South China Sea with the aim of deterring China, but China has already developed a number of anti-stealth radar systems, so the F-35C can be detected, Fu said, noting that China also has countermeasures against the vertical take-off and landing-capable CMV-22Bs, which could land on islands and reefs in the region.”

The PLA Southern Theater Command meanwhile charged the US Navy with “trespassing” and “violating” Chinese sovereign waters. It particular it claimed to have “warned off” the USS Benfold destroyer from near the reefs during the Wednesday incident. The US responded that the navy continues upholding lawful freedom of navigation operations.

State media also called the carrier’s arrival with the stealth jets on board a “provocative deployment” which China is able to counter if needed. (more…)

It was a lousy end to a lousy week…a week that began with such great promise, only to have the rug pulled out from under us again.

So all we can really do is take stock of what happened and why. We then move on to next week and what lays ahead, specifically the CPI and retail sales numbers before the FOMC on the 21st and 22nd of this month.

And as you can tell, I’m really…

ZeroHedge: The Covidian Cult (Part III): There’s Reality & There’s “Reality”

The Covidian Cult (Part III): There’s Reality & There’s “Reality”

Authored by CJ Hopkins via The Consent Factory,

In The Covidian Cult (Part I) and (Part II), I characterized the so-called “New Normal” as a “global totalitarian ideological movement.” Since I published those essays, more and more people have come to see it for what it is, not “insanity” or “an overreaction,” but, in fact, a new form of totalitarianism, a globalized, pathologized, depoliticized form, which is being systematically implemented under the guise of “protecting the public health.”

In order to oppose this new form of totalitarianism, we need to understand how it both resembles and differs from earlier totalitarian systems. The similarities are fairly obvious — the suspension of constitutional rights, governments ruling by decree, official propaganda, public loyalty rituals, the outlawing of political opposition, censorship, social segregation, goon squads terrorizing the public, and so on — but the differences are not obvious.

Whereas 20th-Century totalitarianism (i.e., the form most people are generally familiar with) was more or less national and overtly political, New Normal totalitarianism is supranational, and its ideology is much more subtle. The New Normal is not Nazism or Stalinism. It is global-capitalist totalitarianism, and global capitalism doesn’t have an ideology, technically, or, rather, its ideology is “reality.” When you are an unrivaled global ideological hegemon, as global capitalism has been for the last 30 years or so, your ideology automatically becomes “reality,” because there are no competing ideologies. Actually, there is no ideology at all … there is only “reality” and “unreality,” “normality” and “deviations from the norm.”

Yes, I know, reality is reality … that’s why I’m putting all these terms in scare quotes, so, please, spare me the lengthy emails conclusively proving the reality of reality and try to understand how this works.

There is reality (whatever you believe it is), and there is “reality,” which dictates how our societies function. “Reality” is constructed (i. (more…)

The U.S. Has 6.3 Times More COVID-19 Cases Per 100,000 than Canada. What Went Wrong?

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: August 30, 2021 ~ As of this past Friday, August 27, the U.S. had 330 COVID-19 infections per 100,000 over the last 7 days, according to the Reuters COVID-19 tracker. Canada had 6.3 times fewer cases, reporting only 52 per 100,000 over the past 7 days. The U.S. stood at 62 percent of its prior peak of cases on Friday while Canada stood at 32 percent of its prior peak. The U.S. and Canada confirmed their first cases of the virus within a week of each other in January of 2020. Both countries began vaccinating their population at roughly the same time, in December of 2020. The majority of shots in both countries came from the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, which require two doses to be considered fully vaccinated. But the U.S. fell dramatically behind Canada in the early days of testing for the virus. … Continue reading

ZeroHedge: Airbnb Removes Sexual Assault Arbitration Clause, Allowing Hosts And Guests To Sue The Company

Airbnb Removes Sexual Assault Arbitration Clause, Allowing Hosts And Guests To Sue The Company

Heading into 2021 with the tailwind of lockdowns and travel restrictions finally loosening (at least for now), Airbnb is signaling to hosts and guests that it can now be sued for sexual assault and harassment, replacing an arbitration clause that’s been in place for “more than a decade”. 

The new update takes effect in the fall, Bloomberg wrote last week

The company said in a statement: “We believe that survivors should be able to bring claims in whatever forum is best for them. We encourage our industry peers within the travel and hospitality space to consider taking similar steps for their respective communities.”

Bloomberg had previously reported on violent crimes that had taken place at Airbnb listings. That report pointed out that Airbnb had spent millions of dollars on settlement payouts and had used its binding arbitration clause as a shield from being sued.

Since 2011, Airbnb’s terms of service have stated that “any dispute arising out of a stay booked on the platform will be settled through binding arbitration,” Bloomberg noted.

This stood at odds with the ethos of the #MeToo movement that has been sweeping the country over the last few years. Previously, Airbnb had joined companies like Microsoft and Google in removing binding arbitration in sexual assault and sexual harassment claims filed by employees, the report notes.

Its new terms of service “will codify a practice we have already had in place,” the company said, noting that since January 2019 it hadn’t asked a court to throw out a lawsuit in favor of arbitration.

Congressman Andy Barr Wants Robinhood’s Young Day Traders to Be Free to Trade Themselves into Poverty While All of His Own Money Remains Professionally Managed

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: March 19, 2021 ~ During the Wednesday House Financial Services Committee hearing on the toxic business model gaining steam on Wall Street, where market makers pay for order flow from online brokerage firms like Robinhood in order to trade against the so-called “dumb money” from retail investors, there were regular bursts of hypocrisy from the Wall Street-funded Republicans on the Committee. One of the most gag-worthy lectures came from Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY). According to the Center for Responsive Politics, nine of Barr’s top 15 donors to his Campaign Committee and Leadership PAC for the 2019-2020 campaign cycle are connected to Wall Street. Those donors include Prudential Financial (which is a derivatives counterparty to mega banks on Wall Street); Apollo Global Management, a private equity firm; Bank of America, parent of the giant brokerage firm Merrill Lynch; Charles Schwab, the retail brokerage firm; FMR Corp., … Continue reading

ZeroHedge: Jaguar To Go Fully-Electric By 2025

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food.

Jaguar To Go Fully-Electric By 2025

Submitted by Market Crumbs,

As automakers transition to a future of electric vehicles, a handful of them are targeting specific dates to offer only electric vehicles.

Bentley Motors announced in November that its model range will be exclusively plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicles by 2026 and full electric vehicles by 2030. General Motors announced just a few weeks ago that it will also phase out the internal combustion engine as it will offer only electric vehicles by 2035.

Jaguar Land Rover is the latest automaker to commit to a date to offer only electric vehicles as the company announced earlier this week the Jaguar vehicle lineup will be all-electric by 2025. The company also announced Land Rover will see offer its first all-electric variant in 2024 with a total of six pure electric variants to be offered in the next five years.

By 2030, Jaguar Land Rover estimates 100% of Jaguar sales and around 60% of Land Rover sales will be electric vehicles. Jaguar Land Rover’s goal is to achieve net zero carbon emissions across its entire supply chain, products and operations by 2039.

Jaguar Land Rover has committed £2.5 billion, or about $3.5 billion, per year to to invest in electrification technologies and the development of connected services. The automaker is also developing hydrogen vehicles with prototypes expected in the next 12 months in anticipation of the expected adoption of clean-hydrogen fuel-cell power.

“As a human-centred company, we can, and will, move much faster and with clear purpose of not just reimagining modern luxury but defining it for two distinct brands,” Jaguar Land Rover CEO Thierry Bolloré said. “Brands that present emotionally unique designs, pieces of art if you like, but all with connected technologies and responsible materials that collectively set new standards in ownership.

Subpoenas Start to Fly in the GameStop Saga as a Dude Sitting in Federal Prison Offers Guidance

Subpoenas Start to Fly in the GameStop Saga as a Dude Sitting in Federal Prison Offers Guidance

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: February 12, 2021 ~ We knew Keith Gill’s worst nightmare was about to happen when we learned that he lived in Massachusetts. That state is uniquely the worst place to flout securities regulations because the Secretary of the Commonwealth, who oversees its Securities Division, is William Galvin, who has been reelected to that post every four years since first obtaining the position in 1994. Galvin is nationally known as a Pitbull for going after security frauds taking place in his state. Keith Gill is the man who hawked the shares of GameStop on Reddit’s WallStreetBets’ message board under the screen name DeepF***ingValue and on YouTube under the handle Roaring Kitty. As we reported on January 30, far from being an “amateur trader,” as Gill was being characterized by the media, he actually held sophisticated trading licenses and was registered with the broker-dealer unit of … Continue reading

America’s Out Of Control Teens Are On A Historic Crime Spree

via the economic collapse blog Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food.

Young people are running wild all over the country, and nobody seems to be able to come up with a solution to slow down the violence.  Following the tragic death of George Floyd, teens were disproportionally involved in the rioting, looting and arson that erupted in major cities throughout the nation for the remainder of 2020.  And sometimes they would just take out their frustrations on random people on the street.  But in addition to violence that was spurred by social movements, most of our urban areas also experienced dramatic spikes in their murder rates.  In fact, one recently released report found that murder rates rose by an average of 30 percent in 34 of our largest cities…

THE HOMICIDE RATE across 34 American cities increased by 30% on average during 2020, according to experts, as the U.S. reeled from the coronavirus pandemic and widespread protests against police brutality.

The newly released report from the National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice found that homicides rose in 29 of the 34 cities studied and that the three largest cities in the sample – New York, Los Angeles and Chicago – accounted for 40% of the additional homicide victims in 2020.

That 30 percent average increase was the biggest one year spike ever recorded, and way too much of the time these murders are being committed by Americans under the age of 20.

For example, two Milwaukee teens were just charged with the rape and murder of a young woman named Ee Lee…

Kamare Lewis, 17, and Kevin Spencer, 15 each face one count of first-degree intentional homicide, as party to a crime and one count of first-degree sexual assault (great bodily harm), as party to a crime.

Lee was found Sept. 16, 2020 in Washington Park by “bystanders,” still breathing but unconscious, severely beaten and left for dead. She was undressed below the waist, indicating sexual assault. She suffered severe contusions to the face/head. A hospital examination confirmed the sex assault.

Lee later died from her injuries on September 19th.

But it wasn’t just Lewis and Spencer that were involved in this brutal attack.  In fact, we are being told that a total of 11 youths were seen leaving the area

Video from the Washington Park Library showed 11 people leaving the park — six in a group on bicycles; five in a separate group, some on bikes and others on foot.

Sadly, young girls are also murdering one another.

Here is an example of one young girl stabbing another young girl to death

Lyric D. Stewart, 14, of Rock Island, was stabbed to death Dec. 30 during a fight in the 1200 block of 11th Street.

Jimena Jinez, 18, also of Rock Island, was arrested in the early morning of Dec. 31, 2020, and charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death. She has been in custody in Rock Island County Jail since then, and is being held on $1.5 million bond.

Our nation is degenerating right in front of our eyes, and it is only going to get worse.

In Jacksonville, Florida a group of teens recently ganged up to kill three people, including a very young mother

In the first time since a Washington Heights triple-murder, the family of one of the victims, Sara Urriola, is speaking out. The Jacksonville mother was murdered by four suspected teens at the Calloway Cove apartments.

“We have lost a loving, caring, wife, mother, daughter, niece, cousin, sister, aunt, best-friend and friend today. Sara loved her friends and family very much and the friends that knew her know she was all about the well-being of her family. She loved to dance, dress up, and enjoyed all family events,” the family said in a statement to Action News Jax.

How twisted do you have to be in order to do something like that?

Horrific murders like this happen day after day, but they barely make a blip on the news anymore because they have become so common.

Meanwhile, carjackings are on the rise all over the nation as well.

According to NPR, the number of carjackings in Minneapolis more than tripled last year…

In Minneapolis, for example, there were 405 carjackings last year — more than triple the number in 2019. The suspects arrested were often juveniles between the ages of 11 and 17.

Other cities saw huge increases too, including New Orleans; Kansas City, Mo.; Louisville, Ky.; and Washington, D.C. Last year in Chicago, there were 1,400 carjackings.

Speaking of Chicago, there are certain parts of the city that now resemble a war zone.  If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, there is a good chance that a kid could stick a gun in your face and demand the keys to your vehicle.

What would you do if this happened to you?

On a sunny January afternoon, Amy Blumenthal drove to her Chicago home after picking up groceries. She turned off a street and into an alley, backed her car into her garage and started unloading the bags.

“All of a sudden, I heard something and looked up and there was a boy with a COVID mask on holding a gun just inches from my face,” Blumenthal says. He demanded she hand over her keys. Another young male, also wearing a mask, told her to hurry up.

Amy Blumenthal was not prepared to face this sort of a scenario.

She eventually pulled herself together enough to give her two attackers the car keys, and she was later totally shocked to find out that they were both under 16 years of age

In shock, she fumbled as she complied — they let her keep her house keys. Then they jumped in the car and sped off. Chicago police officers noticed their erratic driving, gave chase and the two were quickly arrested after crashing the vehicle into a building.

The robbery had left her shaken, but learning more about who they were left her stunned: They were just 15 and 13 years old.

Thanks to decades of running in the wrong direction, this is what our country has become.

We have become a completely and utterly lawless nation from the very top to the very bottom, and yet we continue to refuse to see the error of our ways.

So the fabric of our society will continue to unravel, and the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis will continue to disappear.
