The Deep State Has Complete Dominion Over America! An upcoming collapse is planned with the goal of total destruction, chaos and disorder

The pyramid defines the power structure the majority of humanity is subject to, in even the smallest details of our lives. This issue reveals the impending economic collapse, by explaining what is going on behind the curtain and what is being hidden and why.

The vertical axis of the pyramid represents; power, wealth, knowledge, etc. The shape of the pyramid describes the population distribution as measured by the vertical axis. The great majority of humanity, we the people, are on the lower levels near the bottom of the pyramid. The Controllers – The Powers That Be – the Deep State Elites occupy the lofty levels near the peak.

Control of events at the macro level is carried out from top to bottom by means of divisions at different heights in the pyramid. These divisions make each section and layer independent of each other to mask the full picture of the procedure. Designed on lies, intended to achieve certain goals, such as war, population reduction, increased control, redistribution of wealth, etc., in order to maximize the misery and suffering of the population further down.

Control of events at the macro level is administered top down by making divisions through particular areas in the pyramid. These divisions disconnect every section and layer of each other to disguise the complete picture of proceedings. And, are made by means of lies designed to achieve particular purposes such as war, population reduction, reinforced control, wealth redistribution, etc. and further down to enforce misery and suffering on the masses.

We, the people, let it happen before our very eyes by accepting as truth their promised support and propaganda lies. It stimulated their hunger for unbridled lust for more power and increased wealth. They are Satanists without empathy. Without a soul and heart, with only a mechanical blood pump that keeps them going.

So who are controlling the world? The Illuminati? Freemasons? Jesuits, The Bilderberg Group? Or are these all red herrings to distract prying eyes from the real global elite? The answer, like most topics worth exploring, is not quite so simple. Have no doubt, there are secretive global powers whose only goal is to keep and grow that power. But it really may not be as secretive as people may think. And that’s what makes it even more criminal.

Explore the three main categories: Financial, Political and Media. This is a harder task than may be imagined, since they all work by design in concert.

For the Financial Elite follow the money; Systems theorist James B. Glattfelder sheds light on the dark corners of bank control and international finance with his scientific process analysis and pulls some of the major players out of the dark.

From a massive database of 37 million companies, Glattfelder pulled out the 43,060 transnational corporations – companies that operate in more than one country – that are all connected by their shareholders. Digging further, he constructed a model that actually displays just how connected these companies are to one another through their ownership of shares and corresponding operating revenues.

Only 1318 transnational corporations form the core of the economy. In this graphic, the Super connected companies are red, very connected companies are yellow. The size of the dot represents revenue.

This image is a chilling one that looks like some sort of intergalactic light globe. Glattfelder has done a remarkable job of boiling these connections down to the main actors, as well as pinpointing how much power they have over the global market. These “ownership networks” can reveal who the key players are, how they are organised, and exactly how interconnected these powers are. From New Scientist:

Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What’s more, although they represent 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appear to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world’s large blue chip and manufacturing firms – which is the “real” economy – that represents 60 per cent of global revenues (GDP).

When further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that control 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. According to his data, Glattfelder found that the top 730 shareholders control a whopping 80% of the entire revenue of transnational corporations.

And, an amazing surprise! These are mostly financial institutions in the United States and the United Kingdom. That is a huge amount of concentrated control in a small number of hands. The top ten transnational companies hold the most control over the global economy. If you are one of the many that are convinced Big Banks run the world, you should get an amusing sense of justification for your view.

The top 25, include JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, and Goldman Sachs. What you won’t find are Apple, ExxonMobil, Shell, Microsoft, or General Electric, which is strange. In fact, only China’s Petrochemical Group Company stays at number 50, and is the first company in the row that produces something.

Among the1318 transnational corporations, are the well known product brands, like Big Oil, Big Pharma, High Tech, and all Communication, Media and Telecoms. Food suppliers like Nestle, Unilever, Heinz, Procter and Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Manufactures like Philips, Siemens, Alstom, Mercedes, BMW, VW, Renault, etc. Service providers like, Google, Face Book, Twitter, all are included in this 2nd tier group.

The top 49 corporations are financial institutions, banks, and insurance companies — with the exception of Wal-Mart, which ranks at number 15. The rest essentially just push money around to one another.

These financial institutions run the world. Which are essentially the “too big to fail” banks.” As, actual fact, the “too big to fail,” are the “too connected to fail”.

A high degree of interconnectivity can be bad for stability, because stress can spread through the system like an epidemic. It is one thing to have suspicions that someone is working behind the scenes to control the world’s money supply. It’s quite another to have scientific evidence that clearly proofs it. But these criminals can only exist within a political system that supports their goals. And those political systems are pretty much operating in the open, as the awake may know and see.

Agenda 2030 is well-advanced

The Deep State (DS) Elite have made every major geopolitical decision over the last one hundred years, that always came through one of their following organisations: The Bilderberg Group, established in early 50s by Nazi Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Bank, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), or the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Factually, those are the DS-global main power brokers.

The Fed, and almost all other central banks and governments continue to manipulate the free market and intentionally strip off future growth and earnings. Deep-rooted financial institutions and corrupt politicians continue to enrich themselves to maintain their wealth and power at the expense of the populace.

The fiat financial system is collapsing worldwide

Money creation via debt issuance must be balanced with economic growth. As the debt burden increases, more growth increase is required, and when this growth falters, so does the entire system, unless the excess debt is removed. In other words; Debt is now too far over-proportionated that this kills worldwide the current financial fiat system. Eventually this system will be replaced by the QFS once President Trump is in his second term.

The question now is; Would the collapse of the US dollar come before this happens, as the DS tries to enforce this to blame the Trump-administration to move Biden in, or will Trump-Team still have the time to replace it on their own terms? History tells us, it will become a narrow escape. Already, since 2008 on its current trajectory, the system seems destined to go-down pretty soon, the same way every other fiat currency in history has gone towards destruction and collapse.

An upcoming collapse is planned by the Deep State with the goal of total destruction, chaos and disorder, in which countless population reductions will take place while the controllers and high level minions hide out underground in hidden shelters. In this scenario, the entire worldwide financial system comes undone and must be built back up from scratch, with far fewer people, and a new worldwide money system based on the SDR fiat currency run by the IMF. This they have called the Great Reset, as regularly is read in the MSM.

From what is known of the modes of operation by the Deep State, this starts with their standard use of Problem-Reaction-Solution (PRS) to create situations of crises, and disasters that allow them to increase control, instead to losing it. Such a scenario would completely destroy the infrastructure through which they move and operate, from high level finance to media manipulation, to academia, right down to the local public school system. They have been heavily invested in this plan for a very long time. Whereas the COVID pandemic their substitute is for the planned WW3, that should have taken place under a Hilary Clinton administration.

Regardless of what people may think about the origins of the 2030 Agenda, it is wise to take your time to read the Protocols of Zion. Don’t just read them, but study them. They explain in precise detail what is going to happen in the world today and why.

Only a one-time chance to destroy the Deep State from top to bottom

There is no denying the adept implementation of each item over many generations, originates from the top of the pyramid. Their, knowledge of human weaknesses and the power of lies and deceit reign supreme. Conclusion, the DS-plan for destruction of all of the control infrastructure is being undertaken now, to have the opportunity to begin all over again. But, don’t worry, Trump-Team and the Patriots have the situation firmly under control.

The collapse of the Dollar Reserve Currency has been anticipated for many years at least since the crisis of 2007/8 and should be used to tighten the DS-grip over the masses without great loss to their infrastructure.

On the other hand, after the Central Banks have been eliminated, local physically gold-backed QFS currencies will be implemented globally, in a people-controlled system that will replace all existing Rothschild Central Bank systems where necessary. After, eliminating all Central Banks (CB), the TBTF – Too Big Too Fail banks will be dismantled and split into smaller local bank offices serving the public.

Meanwhile, countless lives are and have being destroyed by fraud committed at these CB and TBTF-levels. Look at their crimes of fraud as the last gasps of a dying fiat currency system. And by extension, ask: could it be an expression of “human nature” when faced with imminent collapse? No, there is a much better explanation.

The emergence of psychopaths in high-ranking positions of great power in government, institutions and businesses is an issue that many of us have been warning against for years. The psychopath is an excellent piece of the puzzle in the existing pyramid because of his or her sharp ‘instinctive awareness’ of who is in charge, and can always be expected to act according to supposed self-interest. The actions of psychopaths are unscrupulous and out of self-interest at the expense of others, in whatever sense. This means that all investigations of fraud at a higher level are sabotaged in terms of investigation and prosecution as a guarantee that the hidden agenda will be completed. All this is described in the protocols of Zion as defined in Agenda 2030.

Draining the swamp

The Deep State cabal with their cronies are the top 1 percent of the population who own more than half of the world’s wealth. They are an extremely powerful network of individuals that controls nearly everything around us. People won’t read about it in the mainstream media because they are also controlled by these very same people. Politicians won’t talk about it publicly as they too are complicit. That would be like a mobster discussing murder.

The Deep State is the source of all that is wrong, immoral and negative on planet Earth. To survive the coming rough times, it’s essential to understand what it is all about. The Deep State is organised of top-echelon employees of powerful agencies, like the CIA, FBI, NSA, IMF, CFR, BIS, FED, EU, ECB, BoJ, top generals, admirals, and other military operatives, legislators, long-term politicians, members of- congress, parliament, house of Lords and senators, directors of important supervisory agencies and CEO’s of most of the big multinationals, of which the majority shareholder ownership is in the hands of Deep State cronies.

The draining of the swamp, essentially has to start with first removing the head of the Octopus before eliminating their puppets top down. We will witness this in the coming weeks, after President Trump has begun his second term in office. Enjoy this live show, only once in the history of mankind, this will be the greatest spectacle on earth. We, as human beings, are very privileged to witness it, and we are helping to ensure that every cabal puppet is arrested and brought to justice.

Trump-Team is ready to reveal something very big in the next couple of weeks. They have the swamp and the MSM trapped, the election fraud is out in the open. Now, starts the time we the people are able to take back our country, on the basis of the Constitution that shows the way. This will be the storm Q has talked about.

The World and Many Americans Do Not Realize That the US Is Now a Cancel Culture Totalitarian State in Which Exercise of the First Amendment Is Domestic Terrorism

There has been abundant and over-the-top discussion about the events of this past week and the so-called “insurrection” of Trump supporters—the Deplorables—at the United States Capitol on January 6. Since that day the major news media—the media establishment, including notoriously  Fox News—have kept up a constant and ranting drumbeat, with dire images of “sedition” and “treason,” and the absolute and (for them) undebatable demand to “suppress” and “cancel” anyone who disagrees with their views. Not just of Deplorables with a higher public profile, but ANY person who might in the slightest way demur or dissent from their template.

The persecution now reaches down to regular folk who have been denounced because they are Trump supporters.

Already there is news that literally hundreds of men and women have been terminated, fired from their jobs if their employers find out about their dissident views…not just attending a pro-Trump event.

Just the other day North Carolina’s Attorney General (and suitably “woke” Leftie) Josh Stein publicly demanded that Tar Heel citizens denounce their neighbors if those folks might have attended the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally. And your children? They should denounce their parents, says Stein. Remind you of the old Soviet Union? This may be worse: the advent of a new, more severe “totalitarian democracy.” Josh Stein is, ironically, North Carolina’s chief legal enforcer….

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

Already there is an FBI investigation occurring of a Fort Bragg [it still bears that name but not for much longer!] officer who as a private person helped a group of regular Moore County NC people to attend the January 6 rally. None of them invaded the Capitol—none of them. But that doesn’t matter: hold them up for media scorn, blacken their reputations, maybe even inveigle them in bogus legal charges; in other words, silence them and stomp them down so that they never again question Big Brother.

The airline stewards union demands that any Trump supporter be barred from flying, and they may well get their wish. So if you were one of the several hundred thousand folks who went to Washington last week, even as a peaceful and respectful participant, if some “woke” person knows that and squeals, Bam! You’re apt to be kicked off a flight or not permitted to board.

The coordinated and nearly universal cabal of Big Tech now asserts not only a total ban of hundreds of conservative groups AND individuals, but collaborates with the incoming Biden team, just as they collaborated with the Democratic National Committee to help steal the November election. Their minions will populate the incoming administration, and soon you will not be able to tell the difference. As in Orwell’s Animal Farm, the dominant pigs will become indistinguishable from the humans…and Big Tech and Big Government will effectively merge and control our lives.

Dozens of major banks and corporations now ritualistic “cancel” anyone who raises even the slightest question about what happened last November. Howls for blood go out for Senator Josh Hawley who stoutly defended the president and made a reasonable case that widespread election fraud existed last year. He must be expelled from the US Senate; his home and family have been threatened by real violent demonstrators. No problem about that, say the media.

You see, no one with a public profile can now openly state that there are “questions” about November 3. It is verboten to even meekly raise the issue. And if you do, then your wife and children may be terrorized with impunity by those “mostly peaceful” Antifa types.

Television personality, Black Live Matter enthusiast, and intellectual nullity, Joy Reid, dredges up the tried-and-true canard: the Trump rally was actually a manifestation of “white privilege” and historic “white supremacy.” Millions of Democrats AND Republicans agree. We simply must be stamped out…now!

National Washington Post columnist and media pundit Eugene Robinson—with much acclaim from the agents of Big Brother—declares that “Trump supporters are a cult and need to be forcibly ‘deprogrammed’.” Sent to re-education camps? Aren’t our children in public schools already there? So now our enemies, in the name of “defending our democracy” suggest we be sent to the Gulag? Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s experiences will be like a vacation compared to what may await us.

Joe Biden rails against Trump and all his supporters, blasting them as “followers of Nazi Joseph Goebbels [he can’t even correctly pronounce the name] and the Big Lie.” And this is the man who is supposed “to unite” America? His dementia surfaces nearly every time he opens his mouth. Can President Kamala Harris, waiting in the wings, be far away?

Welcome to the inevitable result of “our democracy”: the Globo-Socialist Republic of America. We were warned and we did not heed those warnings. Those wise men, like Southerner Robert Lewis Dabney, were as Cassandra at Troy: “predestined to prophesy truth and never to be believed until too late.”

Those that are aware of the machinations unfolding in America today see a potentially deadly situation beginning to unfold. The talk of detention camps and foreign soldiers being prepositioned. The Stalinist purge of many top ranking military officers and arming of government agencies to insane levels. The slow deterioration of our industrial capability and ability of families to feed themselves. The erosion of civil liberties and government attacks on patriotic Americans. The massive spy network established to contain and control the population.

For those who think that a financial collapse causing the loss of their savings and livelihood are the worst that could happen, they might want to consider this possibility.

The global elite that have their hand on all the switches know how individualistic and enterprising many Americans are. If this country were destroyed economically and our infrastructure were destroyed we have the ability to rebuild it all over time. Many of the global players know that a small core of Americans can never be subjugated and could cause many problems for years to come if left to their own devices. In a country as big as America it would be almost impossible to round up all of them so something more drastic may be needed.

Let us not forget the goal of some to return the Earth to a population of 500 million. This means the eradication of 7,2 billion people. Why would Americans think they are exempt from this depopulation event.

In this short VIDEO, I will unearth A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago

In the next crisis these lost skills will be more valuable than gold, food supplies and survival equipment combined. These skills have been tested and proven to work for centuries.

Here is just a small glimpse of what you’ll find in this massive 300-page sequel (in color) to The Lost Ways:

  • A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago. This mysterious dish was just recently rediscovered by NASA who has been giving away rations of it to our brave men and women in their month-long space missions. The Incas stored it in pit holes for up to 10 years, ate it year-round, and actually used it to survive a 4 year long super-drought that wiped out their southern neighbors. So, if it managed to save the Incas centuries ago and it still works for our astronauts today, you can bet your last dollar it will keep you and your family well fed in any crisis. And the best part is that you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

No One Is Listening: A Country Divided Against Itself

The U.S. may morph into two nations with the increasingly impoverished helot “deplorables” under the heel of the empowered social justice warriors.

In a recent article Catholic University professor Claes G. Ryn wrote “Few people are really open to persuasion in any case—not just on political subjects but on any subject about which they care and on which they have adopted certain views. Diehard partisans for a certain outlook will refuse to have their beliefs questioned, and so will many others. They will be no less dismissive of a document challenging their opinions if it is full of footnotes and appendixes. Such a document will, indeed, make them resist it even more. As for the relatively few people who are truly open-minded, they will not find another person’s observations dispositive. They will, as they should, want to consider the evidence on a contested matter for themselves.”

The observation immediately calls to mind the red-blue political division that has hardened in the United States over the past several years, with the two sides persistently talking past each other. Part of the problem is that once someone has staked out an essentially ideological position, he or she will regard new developments in such a way as to fit with that preconception. Once one is locked into a viewpoint in that fashion it becomes practically speaking impossible to “consider the evidence on a contested manner” for oneself.

That tendency to want to believe that something is indisputably true means that most people find it difficult to entertain two somewhat contradictory ideas at the same time. In the current context it should be possible to believe that Donald Trump has been a very bad president based on some aspects of his performance while also conceding that many of his failings have been spawned by the unrelenting criticism he has received from the media as well as the clandestine efforts within the government establishment to undermine and destroy him. Most who emphasize the conspiracy against the president also feel compelled to defend his record. Those who don’t believe there was a conspiracy against him, including Russiagate, support his being impeached and also condemn his achievements.

Or there is the election itself, with one side believing it was stolen and the other maintaining that there was no fraud. In reality, an objective review of the actual evidence and examination of the registration and voting systems that are in place suggests that there certainly was fraud, though the issue of whether it amounted to a change in the outcome is likely a question that will never be answered as the Democrats are now in charge. Voting by mail, much promoted by the Democrats, either was a way of expanding the voters’ rolls or a mechanism that would permit widespread fraud. It is not unreasonable to regard it as doing both.

COVID-19 is another good example of linear thinking. Critics of the pandemic tend to go all the way, minimizing the impact of the disease while also contending that it is a hoax contrived by the government to take away the rights of citizens. Against that, one should be able to recognize that the disease is both highly contagious and deadly for certain demographics while also accepting that the government has mishandled the response to it and is seeking to aggrandize its power over ordinary citizens. So both viewpoints can more-or-less be true.

So, we come to the incident at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington on January 6th. Various unofficial estimates put the number of “Stop the Steal” protesters objecting to what was seen as a fraudulent election at between 20,000 and 200,000. The language being used to describe what occurred that afternoon is suggestive and would likely delight George Orwell. The liberal media (nearly all of it) as well as some Democratic congressmen have officially declared it “incitement of insurrection.” Other expressions that are popping up include “domestic terrorism,” “sedition,” “right wing mobs,” a “coup” or a “storming” of the building, all reportedly driven by incendiary language used by President Trump. Others preferred describing a “breaching” of security or even a “riot” or possibly “treason.”

A local newspaper in Virginia wrote a headline saying that the Capitol building was “ransacked” while Politico sounded the alarm about the “mob who breached the Capitol.” The New York Times thundered that the “mob” included “infamous white supremacists and conspiracy theorists.” What is not in dispute is that five died during the incursion into the building, including a woman Air Force veteran who was unnecessarily shot and a Capitol Police Force officer who was murdered by being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. That the death toll was not higher is inevitably being attributed by some to restraint by the police due to “white privilege” as most of the demonstrators were Caucasian.

Trump allies reject the language and all it implies, insisting that the president did not ever unambiguously encourage actual violence on the part of participants in the “March to Save America” and that most of the demonstration was peaceful, consisting of ordinary Americans who are shocked by the dying spasms of the country that they grew up in. A Newsweek poll determined that nearly half of Republican voters supported the demonstrations at the Capitol, while no less than 68% opined that they were no threat to the American political system, demonstrating just how divided the country is. There have also been claims that infiltrators from Antifa and BLM might have exploited the opportunity to initiate the successful assault by the demonstrators that broke the police line and forced the entry into the Capitol building. Some Democrats are also suggesting that the entry was itself aided by some of the police, a not completely unreasonable suggestion given the inexplicably poor performance by the Capitol Police Force and some photographic evidence showing demonstrators being assisted by security personnel.

One might have noted that the only thing missing from the event had been the allegations that it included “interference” by the Russians or possibly even the Chinese, but it now appears that some Democrats are actually pointing their fingers at Vladimir Putin. And surely the Iranians and even the North Koreans must have had something to do with it. We will have to wait until the Biden Administration is installed, if it is, to find out which foreigners exactly will have to be implicated and punished. One eagerly awaits the inevitable Washington Post cartoon showing Putin in his office laughing while watching on TV events in Washington.

One thing that is for sure and that is being ignored by many of those who have taken up contrary positions is that there will be consequences from what took place last week. Given the polarization in the discussion itself, “truth” will be the first entity sacrificed as the Republicans will make haste to walk away from Trump while the Democrats will not be eager to permit anyone to dig any deeper into the mechanics of the election. No matter what the GOP chooses to do, it will be the long-term loser even if Trump himself is successfully made the designated fall guy and it will have to learn how to retain the support of the Trumpsters without Donald Trump.

In spite of all the media and talking head fulminations, it nevertheless remains unlikely that Trump will actually be impeached and convicted by both houses of Congress or removed under Article 25 as that would permit his lawyers to mount a defense, which would embarrass everyone. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has nevertheless raised tension by contacting the Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon and inquiring whether the president can be denied the nuclear weapons’ codes as he appears to be “unhinged.” There is also speculation that an attack on Iran in coordination with Israel might be under consideration to change the narrative.

Perhaps more interestingly, some Democrats are calling for investigation and punishment for some fellow politicians, government employees and ordinary citizens who might be found guilty of supporting the Trump “coup.” Several identified demonstrators have already lost their jobs while the Washington Post has demanded that “seditious Republicans must be held accountable.” There is even some discussion of setting up a “truth commission” to investigate and punish those individuals who aided in Trump’s other alleged crimes. Such people might have their liberty to travel on commercial flights, to associate in groups and/or to hold certain jobs restricted, expanding on existing anti-terror legislation that would now include a focus on “rightwing terrorism” while also increasing the number of “hate crimes.” Surveillance of individuals who have committed no crimes would likely increase dramatically. Any or all of those moves by Biden would, however, set a very bad precedent, sure to beget more violence.

And also there are calls for greater restrictions on what appears on social media. One ex-Obama adviser has even claimed that social media caused the Capitol building riot by “enabling the spread of the lies, hate speech, and conspiracy theories [by rightwing extremists] that led to” the attack. Since the Democrats now command a majority in both houses of Congress as well as the White House that will mean that those labeled “white supremacists” and their message will be expunged while politically correct social justice content will be promoted. Several social media platforms have begun banning what they call right wing material and Biden as well as several senators have, in fact, already promised to bring in stronger “domestic terrorism prevention” legislation based on the Patriot Act. And even those who believe themselves “safe” as holding reliably progressive views will eventually discover that any deviance from Establishment acceptable positions will be forbidden. Free speech in America will become as dead at the Dodo and the United States would become effectively two nations with the increasingly impoverished helot “deplorables” under the heel of the empowered social justice warriors. It won’t be pretty, and it won’t be stable.

The Blackout War: China, Russia And Iran Building Super-EMP Bombs for ‘Blackout Warfare’

Several nations, including China and Russia, are building powerful nuclear bombs designed to produce super-electromagnetic pulse (EMP) waves capable of devastating all electronics—from computers to electric grids—for hundreds of miles, according to a newly-released congressional study.

A report by the now-defunct Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack, for the first time reveals details on how nuclear EMP weapons are integrated into the military doctrines of China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran.

The report discloses how those states could use EMP attacks in theaters of battle in the Middle East, Far East, Europe, and North America.

“Nuclear EMP attack is part of the military doctrines, plans, and exercises of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran for a revolutionary new way of warfare against military forces and civilian critical infrastructures by cyber, sabotage, and EMP,” the report states.

“This new way of warfare is called many things by many nations: In Russia, China, and Iran it is called Sixth Generation Warfare, Non-Contact Warfare, Electronic Warfare, Total Information Warfare, and Cyber Warfare.”

Nuclear-electronic warfare also is called “Blackout War” because of its effects on all electronic devices.

EMP attacks will be carried out at such high altitudes they will produce no blast or other immediate effects harmful to humans. Instead, three types of EMP waves in seconds damage electronics and the strikes are regarded by adversaries as not an act of nuclear war.

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

“Potential adversaries understand that millions could die from the long-term collateral effects of EMP and cyber-attacks that cause protracted black-out of national electric grids and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures,” the report said.

The attacks are regarded by enemy military planners as a relatively easy, potentially unattributable means of inflicting mass destruction and forcing opponents to capitulate.

EMP strikes can be adjusted in the size of the area and the intensity of the wave by detonating at different altitudes. The closer to the earth the more powerful is the pulse. The higher the altitude, the wider the area of impact.

“A single nuclear weapon can potentially make an EMP attack against a target the size of North America,” the report said. “Any nuclear weapon detonated at an altitude of 30 kilometers [18.6 miles] or higher will generate a potentially catastrophic EMP.”

Super-EMP bombs produce gamma rays that generate a peak EMP field of 200,000 volts per meter—enough to fry strategic communications and intelligence systems. China, Russia, and probably North Korea are said to have these arms, according to the commission. The United States has no super-EMP weapons in its nuclear arsenal.

The bombs do not require accuracy and the weapons do not require a re-entry vehicle, heat shield, and shock absorbers required for nuclear warheads detonated in the atmosphere above targets.

The weapons can be delivered through a variety of means including satellites, long- or medium-range missile; short-range missiles launched from a freighter; from some cruise missiles and anti-ship missiles; from jets or a commercial jetliner; or a meteorological balloon.

The declassified report was cleared for release by the Pentagon after a security review and provides graphics showing for the first time in an official government publication how nuclear detonations triggered 18.6 miles to 248 miles above the earth will produce targeted electronic waves stretching up to 1,500 miles.

Portions of the report are redacted in order to prevent adversaries from learning U.S. electronic vulnerabilities.

The report shows how Iran—a state U.S. intelligence agencies have assessed is one year away from building a nuclear weapon—could use a single nuclear weapon fired on a medium-range missile to black out Israel, Egypt and Israel together, or Saudi Arabia without creating blast damage.

China also could use EMP weapons to plunge the island of Taiwan into electronic darkness and disable aircraft carrier strike groups sailing to defend Taiwan from a mainland attack.

China-Taiwan-Philippines

North Korea could set off a nuclear bomb in space over Japan. Both Japan and Taiwan are heavily reliant on electronics that are vulnerable to EMP.

Russia could fire off one of its super-EMP bombs over Europe to throw NATO and the continent into darkness and create chaos as well, according to the report.

The Islamic State might acquire a nuclear weapon from North Korea or Iran along with a short-range missile that could loft it into space and detonate over Italy.

For the United States, an EMP war scenario is shown as the result of conflicts involving Russian strikes on Canada and U.S. retaliation using conventional precision strikes.

In a major conflict with either China or Russia, the first shot in the war could be a space burst of a super EMP weapon designed to knock out U.S. nuclear command and control and weapons.

“A super-EMP warhead, in the possession of Russia or North Korea, could put at risk the best protected U.S. assets, even threatening the survival of the U.S. nuclear deterrent,” the report said.

Moscow has adopted a new nuclear strategy called escalate to de-escalate a conflict with nuclear arms that the report suggests is tailored to space-based EMP attacks.

The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls.

We are straying away from our roots on a dangerous road from which there will be no turning back. And the good and bad news is that we are the last generation that can truly do something about it.

We no longer know how to live without refrigerators, without cars, without phones or without supermarkets.

What will you do tomorrow if you simply are unable to buy things?

In this short Video, I will unearth a long-forgotten secret that helped our ancestors survive famines, wars, economic crises, diseases, droughts, and anything else life threw at them… a secret that will help you do the same for your loved ones when America crumbles into the ground.

Russian nuclear missile submarines could use super-EMP warhead to paralyze U.S. strategic and conventional forces and blackout the national grid.

The report states that 14 EMP bursts up to 60 miles would create powerful electronic waves for key facilities, including national missile defenses at Alaska and California; the command center at the Pentagon outside Washington; and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado.

Other EMP strikes would shut down missile and bomber wings in Minot, North Dakota, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming and Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana.

Bomber wings in Missouri, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Texas also could be blacked out along with nuclear missile submarine bases in Washington and Georgia.

A U.S.-China conflict over Taiwan could lead to Beijing conducting a black-out EMP strike on the lower 48 states that it hopes would disrupt military command and control and communications and knock the United States out of the regional Asian conflict.

Iran, too, could launch a long-range missile nuclear attack in space over the United States as a way for the Islamic regime in Tehran to destroy what its leaders regard as the “Great Satan.”

If North Korea or Iran covertly supplies the al Qaeda terrorist group with a nuclear weapon, the terrorist group that attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon could obtain a short-range mobile missile and fire the nuclear warhead into space above the country as part of its war against the United States.

North Korea, which several years ago covertly transferred SA-10 surface-to-air missiles on a ship after repairs in Cuba, could use a short-range missile with a nuclear warhead to black out the Texas electric grid in a bid to force the United States to halt military exercises in South Korea.

“The United States is particularly vulnerable to this new type of warfare, because we have come to rely on information systems and computerized technologies,” said Peter Pry, a former CIA officer, commission member, and author of the new report.

“Much of the administrative information in the armed forces goes through the civilian internet,” he said. “Ours is the most technologically advanced society, and therefore the most susceptible to attack. What is surprising is that our enemies do not consider an EMP attack to be an act of nuclear war.”

The report makes clear that the potential use of EMP attacks is a real danger and one openly discussed in military doctrine writings.

Russian Gen. Vladimir Slipchenko first disclosed Moscow’s intentions for using EMP in his book “Non-Contact Wars” in 2000. “A single low-yield nuclear weapon exploded for this purpose high above the area of combat operations can generate an electromagnetic pulse covering a large area and destroying electronic equipment without loss of life that is caused by the blast or radiation,” he stated.

China’s military doctrine is similar and was outlined in a book on “Total Information Warfare.”

“As soon as its computer networks come under attack and are destroyed, the country will slip into a state of paralysis and the lives of its people will ground to a halt,” the author Shen Weiguang wrote.

Shen urged China to build “nuclear electromagnetic pulse” along with cyber weapons that will “enable it to stand up to the military powers in the information age and neutralize and check the deterrence of Western powers, including the United States.”

Iran’s doctrine is contained in a military textbook “Passive Defense” that calls for EMP attacks. “As a result of not having the other destructive effects that nuclear weapons possess, among them the loss of human life, weapons derived from electromagnetic pulses have attracted attention with regard to their use in future wars,” the book states.

North Korea has threatened to use nuclear EMP attacks following its most recently underground nuclear test. State-run North Korean media said the thermonuclear test blast involved tests for EMP strikes.

In this short VIDEO, I will unearth A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago

In the next crisis these lost skills will be more valuable than gold, food supplies and survival equipment combined. These skills have been tested and proven to work for centuries.

Here is just a small glimpse of what you’ll find in this massive 300-page sequel (in color) to The Lost Ways:

  • A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago. This mysterious dish was just recently rediscovered by NASA who has been giving away rations of it to our brave men and women in their month-long space missions. The Incas stored it in pit holes for up to 10 years, ate it year-round, and actually used it to survive a 4 year long super-drought that wiped out their southern neighbors. So, if it managed to save the Incas centuries ago and it still works for our astronauts today, you can bet your last dollar it will keep you and your family well fed in any crisis. And the best part is that you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

What Will You Eat When the SHTF? Neither FEMA Nor Any Other Governmental Agency is Prepared to Take Care of You In the Aftermath of a Major Crisis

On October 29, 1929, the US Stock Market crashed, surging the country into what we know as the Great Depression. During the Great Depression, countless jobs were lost, millions lost their incomes, and families started to go hungry. This was during a time when many still lived off their own homestead, and if they didn’t, they needed to start.

Situations got so desperate, hungry people made food out of almost nothing. Canned goods, flour, and eggs from your own chickens were sometimes all that was available, if anything at all. Some only had one meal per day, and went hungry at nighttime. Others ate the same food for days or weeks on end because that’s all that was available to them.

Although this happened over 90 years ago, today we prepare ourselves for all types of worst-case scenarios. We know that, of course, this Depression-era famine will happen again, so here are some recipes that your parents or grandparents made during the Great Depression out of nearly nothing.

By no means you need to follow any of these recipes exactly, just adapt with what you have.

Depression Bread

Firstly, this bread is a huge loaf made from only 4 ingredients, all of which will already be in your food reserve.

Keeping homemade bread on-hand adds to many of the dishes on this list.

Ingredients

  • 5 lbs. flour
  • 5 tbsp yeast
  • 6 tsp salt (optional, if you have it)
  • 6 cups warm water, more or less depending on your flour

Instructions

Add flour to a bowl or board and make a well in the flour mound.

Add yeast, salt, and warm water to well and knead into a dough.

Allow to rise for 60 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Add to a baking pan and make 3-4 slits with a knife on the top of the dough.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until the bread is nicely browned on top.

Chipped Beef On Toast

Secondly, using the bread you just made, slice off some nice thick slices to serve with this dried meat Depression delicacy.

What You’ll Need

  1. Add jerky and oil to a pan over medium heat. Cook until the meat softens, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Stir in your flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add milk and bring to a low boil. Allow sauce to thicken for up to 5 minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper if you have it.
  4. Serve over homemade bread, toasted if desired.

Dandelion Salad

This salad can be harvested from your own backyard, just as they did in the 1930’s.

As we know, dandelions are totally edible and delicious, they just require lots of cleaning before eating.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. freshly picked dandelions, cleaned well
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp oil

Guidelines

Head outside and pick the largest, freshest dandelions you can find.

Then, cover the dandelions completely in cold water and rinse 3-4 times.

Using a knife, peel off the darkest outer leaves from the root. Rinse again.

Once clean, either chop or leave whole, depending on your preference.

Add to a large bowl and season with vinegar and oil. Serve immediately.

Baked Beans

Beans are cheap, plentiful, and filling.

They were very common in the Depression era, and recently have had a resurgence with the Covid-19 epidemic.

If you do not have every vegetable used, omit without issue.

What It Is Needed

  • 1 package soaked dried beans, or 2 cans of beans
  • One tomato, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp lard
  • Two tbsp molasses
  • One cup water
  • Instructions
  1. Soak your beans, if using dried, overnight and drain the liquid.
  2. Prepare your veggies by chopping. Omit any vegetable that you do not have on-hand.
  3. Add lard to a stock pot and cook your vegetables until tender.
  4. Add the beans, molasses, and water. Cook all together with a lid on for 2-3 hours or until the beans have your desired consistency. Add more water if needed.
  5. Serve hot. Leftovers of this dish keep very well and can be eaten many days in a row.

Ash Cakes

Ash cakes got their name because different renditions are cooked in the hot white ash of your campfire. These are only 3 ingredients but are filling and have a great texture.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup meat stock or water
  • 2 tbsp lard or grease

Instructions

Mix both ingredients together in a bowl and allow to sit overnight to hydrate the cornmeal. Pat into a bread pan and refrigerate or add to your cool storage before allowing to set up.

The next day, slice into 1-inch slices and fry in melted lard. Serve hot and crispy.

Hoover Stew

This stew is an amalgamation of what you currently have in your reserve. This recipe is very easily adaptable to the items you already possess.

Essentials

  • 1 box noodles
  • A can of tomatoes
  • 1 package of hot dogs, or 1 can of sausage or meat
  • A can of corn, peas or beans
  • 2-4 cups water

Guidelines

Mix all ingredients together in a pot until boiling.

Then simmer for 15-20 minutes until the noodles are tender.

If you have aromatics, onion and garlic would be a great addition.

If not, the recipe is great as is.

Potato Soup

Many of us have potatoes buried in our yards right now, saving them through winter. This is a great way to use up your potato harvest at the end of winter, but you can always use canned potatoes too.

Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and sliced (or 2 cans of potatoes)
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • One carrot, sliced
  • A can of meat, sausage, or hot dogs (optional)
  • 3 cups water or stock
  • 3 cups milk
  • Any herbs you have on-hand
  • Salt to taste

What To Do

Slice all your potatoes, garlic, and carrots. Add to a soup pot with the meat,  water, and milk. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat, keeping the mix at a low simmer.

Then, cook for 30 minutes until all veggies are tender.

Add herbs and salt, if using. Serve hot.

Rice Pudding

And finally, our only Great Depression dessert recipe. There aren’t many comforts during a depression, but at least this rice pudding will bring some familiarity to an undesirable situation.

What It Is Needed For This

  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp honey, maple syrup, or molasses
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Therefore, we may need our parents or grandparents’ Great Depression-era recipes sooner than we think, thanks to the increasing instability brought on by governments and the current pandemic.

Cooking with almost nothing is possible, as the 1930’s and early 1940’s taught us. All of these recipes are easily made with what you should already have in your root cellar and non-perishable reserves. Use your judgement to add or omit any ingredients that suit you.

In conclusion, the next time the economy crashes, which may be sooner than we think, keep prepared with some recipes to keep your family fed and your homestead moving forward.

The United States Is In A Time Of Great Danger – It Feels Like A Civil War Is Imminent! Do Nothing And You Will Make Sure Your Wife And Mother And Children Will Be Raped And Potentially Murdered

The fear campaign has served as an instrument of disinformation.

In the course of the last eleven months starting in early January, I have analyzed almost on a daily basis the timeline and evolution of the Covid crisis. From the very outset in January 2020, people were led to believe and accept the existence of a rapidly progressing and dangerous epidemic.

Media lies sustained the image of a killer virus which initially contributed to destabilizing US-China trade and disrupting air travel. And then in February “V- the Virus” (which incidentally is similar to seasonal influenza) was held responsible for triggering the most serious financial crisis in World history. 

And then on March 11, a lockdown was imposed on 193 member states on the United Nations, leading to the “closure” of national economies Worldwide.

Starting in October,  a “second wave” was announced. “The pandemic is not over”.

The fear campaign prevails. And people are now led to believe that the corona vaccine sponsored by their governments is the “solution”. And that “normality” will  be restored once the entire population of the planet has been vaccinated.

Welcome to the age of the transhumans. If we allow it.

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

As COVID-19 continues to ravage our nation, the economic toll is racing to outstrip the toll in lives taken. While there is clearly no way of comparing the two, the millions of people who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic are the ones who are suffering the brunt of shutting down our country. Many of those people will never get those jobs back, because the companies who laid them off have gone bankrupt.

We have yet to see the full impact that COVID-19 will have on our country and the world.  Even so, it’s surprising that we haven’t yet entered into a time of economic depression. Many financial gurus are predicting that it’s just around the corner, so we’re clearly not out of danger yet. Probably the only way we’re going to see the end of that risk, is by going through the depression and coming out the other side.

Most Americans who have been around for a while know life is nothing like it used to be. When someone wanted a job one was found with a little bit of searching. Today jobs are difficult to find, especially in small communities.

When I was growing up in the 70’s, there were several car dealers in my community. There were three tractor dealers and too many mom and pop stores to count. Today there are two used car dealers and the nearest tractor dealer is twenty miles away. So how is it that we now have more people, but fewer businesses to employ them?

A nations wealth is derived from having a product to sell. That wealth needs to circulate in towns and cities to compound the wealth effect and create jobs and businesses. When wealth is not created or it is siphoned off to other places, the wealth effect can not happen, and in many cases goes into reverse. A community needs a certain amount of service related jobs to function but it also needs some type of production jobs to bring in money from the outside. This can be mining , agriculture or manufacturing type jobs, but they must exist to insure a healthy economy.

America has two major problems today. A large amount of our production is done outside the country eliminating production jobs in local communities and many of the small local businesses that kept wealth within communities have been supplanted by large corporations that siphon wealth out of communities and send it to wall street.

In the past when a small business made profit, that profit was kept in the local community because that is where the owner lived. Now, that profit leaves the community never to be seen again. With less money to circulate within the community the businesses that depend on people spending their extra dollars, have fewer customers and eventually go out of business. With fewer jobs there is that much less money circulating and the economic situation spirals down until nothing is left.

These days corporate businesses and government jobs make up the major part of many local communities. In many cases if it were not for the government jobs, many communities would no longer exist. So what do you think would happen if the government suddenly no longer had money to pay those workers? What would happen if corporate profits dropped to the point where corporate stores decided to close and cut their losses?

To some extent we are seeing this happen now in many places. Corporate stores moved in and drove small local businesses out. Then when the profits dried up the corporate stores closed leaving the community with no jobs or products to buy. With no capital in the local communities to rebuild small businesses, the people simply drive to other areas to do their shopping.

The corporate cronies and government laggards control most of the money flowing through communities now and they want to keep it that way. Any attempt to rebuild local businesses is met with luke warm results. Any business that might make a difference is either killed outright or regulated into oblivion before it can get off the ground. The county where I live has all but abandoned local businesses. The bulk of their income comes from property taxes generated by vacation homes and retirement homes of retired government employees. As long as the government pensions and paychecks continue, they see no reason to change the status quo. The result is that the younger people leave as soon as they can and the average age of the population continues to get older. As with many places today, this area has no future.

Where I live is a microcosm of the nation. Corporate and government entities continue to siphon what little money there is out of communities and just as small communities are dying, the nation will soon follow if current trends do not change. A return to small local economics is the only way to reverse some of the damage and keep our communities livable. But, do not be deceived. There is no way to undo all of the damage that has been done and even if we survive, we will only be a shadow of what we once were as a nation

Will Americans just let this happen? Will lazy Patriots just give a minimal effort?
For readiness, the hour glass has almost run out! In the absence of your local FEMA rep (that is, local spy) organize your neighbors into groups of three and four (so they can’t be infiltrated) and get ready! There is a Wild Ride just ahead! Let’s make a swift effort of taking the Red door, now opening, and painting it black!  Death to all destroyers of America!

Otherwise, the death of America is at hand. And the greatest betrayer of the children and aging of America will be… You! You!  Do nothing and you will make sure your wife and mother and children will be raped and injured beyond belief! Are we locked and loaded yet?

The Elites Are Preparing a New Currency to Replace the U.S. Dollar

Together, gold and cryptocurrencies will play a part in the new monetary paradigm, not out of choice, but out of necessity

Looking back at history, it’s no surprise that today’s economic system produces a vast array of hardships, injustices, and inequalities. Century after century, dictators, bureaucrats, even convicted murderers, have commandeered the financial system, abolishing sound money principles to siphon off wealth for themselves. But no matter what empire, state, or nation the elites have come to rule over, each time, they lay the foundations for an inevitable collapse, corrupting the value of money, and destroying the currency they have bent to their will.

Right now in the 21st century, as the stock market climbs to all-time highs, as the Wall Street machine peddles the “stonks only go up” narrative, as the departing Trump camp celebrates DOW 30,000, the financial rot continues to build under the surface. We’re getting to the stage where we can’t ignore the impending “great reset” any longer, the great unwind we must face to purge deformities from the system.

In the last half-decade, we’ve witnessed the rise of a modern technocracy, where the elites have battled against the hidden forces of economic gravity to cling to power and wealth. By doing so, they created the greatest wealth transfer in history, but they have also destroyed 97% of the U.S. dollar’s purchasing power, producing a vast array of societal and economic defects, deficits, and delusions that will take generations to unwind. This, of course, has set us on a path toward economic ruin, and the inevitable death of the U.S. Dollar. It’s a question of when not if.

The 1971 Nixon Shock was the beginning of the end for shared American prosperity. Although disparities and inequalities still existed on the gold standard, they were nothing compared to what we have today. The U.S. dollar’s gold backing offered unrivaled stability. Productivity rose alongside wages, inflation remained stable, and, despite the Federal Reserve destroying 2% of the Greenback’s purchasing power each year, citizens enjoyed the simple luxury of earning a positive yield on their savings.

It was after Nixon pulled off the greatest illusion in monetary history, ending the gold standard, and forcing the world to embrace a fully-fledged fiat currency system, that financial order descended into chaos. Slowly, over time, income inequality has skyrocketed, currency and banking crises have emerged at a Napoleonic pace, and public debt has almost exceeded War World II levels.

These monetary dislocations have impacted several areas of our society. Consumer health relies on heavily inflated asset prices, not the health of the real economy. With price stability dissipating, rampant inflation has lifted consumer prices, lowering our standard of living. As we lose 2% of our purchasing power leaving our money in the bank, we must throw our savings into an overvalued stock market fueled by speculation and greed — not a booming economy that we desperately need. Since we have to work 300% harder to buy the same stock, we’re always busy, tired, and broke. We take shortcuts, bolstering the disastrous American diet. Our lust for fast food has created a simultaneous mental health and obesity crisis.

Yet, after all this, society has yet to lose total faith in the system. The 21st-century elites will go down as the greatest perception managers of the modern age. Deep down, however, they — and we — know this system cannot last. No power has suspended gravity forever, and mother nature will make no exceptions for modern-day technocrats. This abomination of a system will eventually meet its demise, but as it benefits the elites, they will try everything in their power to keep it alive. Recognizing the U.S. financial hegemony is under threat, they have started to devise a Plan B to maintain power when the old system reaches breaking point: An Orwellian crypto-based monetary system.

The rise of blockchain technology has revolutionized how we think about money in the 21st-century. It’s the first time in history where money can be transferred peer to peer without passing through a central authority, the first decentralized network to enable the financially savvy, from hardcore Cypherpunks to GenZ libertarians, to break free from the tyrannical forces of the modern financial system.

These communities, however, are in for a shock. The system that took Satoshi Nakamoto a decade to perfect will not only fail to upheave the financially repressive system but will help the elites create a new system even more tyrannical than the last, placing more power and control in their hands.

After snubbing the inherent benefits of crypto for years, elites worldwide have responded to crypto’s historic rise. In October 2018, the Maltese government declared that digital currencies were the future and that they would become the first nation to adopt this new paradigm. More recently, in November 2020, ECB Chief, Christine Lagarde, said in a tweet, “We’ve started exploring the possibility of launching a digital euro,” inaugurating the European elites’ attempt to gain power through digital means. Plus, the Chinese government issued 10 million yuan of digital currency to 50,000 random citizens who willingly signed up.

As the U.S Dollar hegemony starts to fail, these competing powers will show their cards, battling it out to secure their currency’s status as the dominant global player. While the elites “restore order” — code-speak for the tyrannical cycle starting over — cryptos created outside the realm of government will be censored. They will also gaslight the people, saying we need to learn from our mistakes, that we need to part from monetary madness and return to stability.

What will the new reserve currency look like? Will gold or crypto become the reserve asset, stabilizing the system, creating a new monetary order? This debate between the crypto nuts and gold bugs is unwarranted since both assets will play a part. Like gold, crypto is unviable as currency and money. To the dismay of hardcore fans within each group, these two communities will unite, creating a truce. Crypto will be used as currency; gold will be used as money — and the feud between the crypto nuts and the gold bugs will come to an end. Together, they will fix each other’s flaws.

Perfect money does not exist, of course, but gold is the closest thing to it. The shiny metal might be a pet rock or a barbarous relic to some, but it has remained the most stable asset over the last 5000 years, granting stability every time monetary collapse ensues; the best candidate to replace whatever the elites claim is backing the fiat monetary system. In the early 1800s, during the first of George Friedman’s U.S. socioeconomic cycles, the greed of the Second Bank of the United States’ stockholders created an economic depression. To enrich themselves, they issued paper currency with no backing, prompting rampant speculation, ultimately leading to a crash.

The 1837 Panic ensued as President Andrew Jackson, a sound money advocate, had responded to the speculation by backing the U.S dollar with gold and silver to purge economic deformities from the previous cycle. The economy remained somewhat stable until America fought a civil war thirty years later. Abraham Lincoln’s government committed the same economic suicide as the shareholders of the now-defunct Second Bank of the United States. Issuing vast sums of paper currency to finance the Civil War— plus speculation on railways — drove America into yet another depression, which led to the Coinage Act of 1873 where President Ulysses S. Grant enacted the de facto gold standard to suppress malinvestment and inflation.

This period in U.S. history is what American’s should expect when the next crisis unfolds, only this time with a modern twist. The next major collapse will coincide with both the mass adoption of crypto and the resurgence of commodity money. Crypto suits an increasingly technological world in which we desire speed, security, and privacy. Using precious metals as a currency — trading in grams, and transporting freight loads between parties like in the California Gold Rush of 1848 — is a crazy proposal for a modern medium of exchange. Transacting with a crypto wallet beats transacting with a gold debit card, hands down.

Crypto, however, isn’t perfect money either. At best, it’s a currency without commodity backing. Though we live in a society where the elites have replaced gold with debt, this doesn’t mean we must continue their mission to destroy money’s intrinsic value. As history shows, we need a gold-backed currency to reverse the sickness that fiat currencies have inflicted on society, and to have any chance of preventing elites from siphoning off wealth for themselves via monetary manipulation.

Only when the great reset occurs — where the fiat system relinquishes, and money regains its value, meaning, and purpose — will we know whether this new monetary paradigm will be governed by the people for the people, or by the same type of elites who always finds a way to exploit the system. It’s obvious which outcome will create a better, fairer, juster world, but it’s also clear, based on history, that the power will end up in the hands of a more autocratic, digitally empowered elite. Is this the moment when the people finally rise up and take charge? We’re about to find out.

COVID-19 THE LAW OF WAR: It’s An Unspoken Crime Against Humanity In A New World Order Era….It’s Not an Epidemic, It’s An Operation

The accumulated evidence is overwhelming that Covid is an orchestration the purpose of which is to eliminate human autonomy and make the concept of freedom a dirty word that will bring you Covid illness and death.  

As physical currency is one necessity for human autonomy, globalists are working on its replacement with digital money. Paper currency, coins, money orders, and checks pass hand to hand and allegedly carry possible infection with Covid. In contrast, digital money is virtual.  No one touches it. More importantly for the globalists, It cannot be drawn out of an account in physical form and horded or hidden.  You cannot make anonymous payments with digital money.  Privacy leaves your life. You become totally transparent.

Some hope that people will have their own private digital money in the form of crytocurrencies. However, transfers can be prevented between an official digital monetary system and private crytocurrencies.  Moreover, private cryptocurrency payment of rents, mortgages, car loans, grocery store bills, and so forth can be banned and enforced.  A private cryptocurrency economy would have to operate outside of the official digital money economy. As the purpose of digital money is to eliminate human autonomy, such a parallel economy would be suppressed. 

The same goes for payments with gold and silver coins.  You could pay for a private service or for privately grown food from gardens if gardens are permitted in a world of artificial food made in factories, which is what the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” encompasses. But you couldn’t purchase a house or car or airline ticket with gold or silver. 

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

People welcomed the digital revolution without recognizing its totalitarian consequences. They love their smart phones, the Internet, video games, social media, online payments, the ability to work from home.  Perhaps many are agreeable to giving up independence and autonomy for these conveniences.  Even if they are not, they are likely to find themselves trapped inside such a system before they become aware of its consequences.

Not that warnings are not all over the place.  MIT’s Gideon Lichfield tells us that there is no going back to normal from Covid.  Controls over our behavior are the new normal.  Freedom, liberty, civil rights are not compatible with a Covid world and the Great Reset that the Covid world is being used to put in place. The World Economic Forum isn’t bashful about describing what is being put in place for us.

The change that elites are bringing to us is so radical that people dismiss it.  But their smart devices have already ensnared them into the change.

The future that is unfolding is a restoration of ancient times when people were regimented under the control of priests or Druids.  Any person showing any sign of independence was a prime candidate for sacrifice to appease the gods. Throughout the Western World this is already happening to truth-tellers.  Manning, Assange, Snowden.

If people want to be free, they are going to have to eliminate the globalists and dispossess the billionaires.  Every last one. It is pointless to peacefully protest, because as the stolen US presidential election makes completely clear, the elites have no regard whatsoever for democracy and the people’s voice.  They hate the concept of government accountable to the people.  

The preferred government is one accountable to the elites, just as ancient governments were accountable to priests, Druids, and pharaohs.  It seems clear enough that this is the direction in which the Western World is headed. World Economic Forum Founder Klaus Schwab explained on May 13, 2019, to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs that the era of freedom was over and done with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVIy3rjuKGY 

Notice that the new era of freedom’s absence “is upon us.”  

Why is is upon us? How is it that it is independent of “us.”  Did God unleash the new era?  No.  It is upon us because it is what the elites are doing to us.  The global elites are making us think that it is ordained and cannot be resisted. If we fall for this and permit it, we will be responsible for destroying our own freedom.  Why not instead destroy those who seek to destroy us?

They can be resisted.  All that has to be done is to round up a handful of totalitarian globalists.  Nothing like the casualties of the Bolshevik Revolution, the American Revolution, the French Revolution are required.  Freedom is not up against an established multitude that needs to be eliminated.  Only a few globalists who are seizing power while people sit cowering sucking their thumbs.

If the globalists are not eliminated, they will eliminate us in the sense of our autonomy, our independence, our ability to express a point of view contrary to the elite’s, our humanity.  

These last few lines will produce demands to know if I am advocating violence.  I am advocating nothing.  I am describing a situation and asking a question. We are losing our freedom.  Are we going to do anything about it?

Perhaps I am mistaken.  But based on available information it is apparent that governments in the Western World are committing violence against the peoples whom they allegedly represent. Violence against people goes far beyond arrests for not wearing a mask and fines for not maintaining social distance.  Lockdowns are dispossessing people of their businesses, prohibiting family gatherings and freedom of association.  These are massive interferences with rights that took centuries of struggle to achieve.  And it is all for nothing as the death rate from Covid is miniscule.

The Western World frozen in fear by lies and propaganda has abandoned freedom.

Are the people of the Western World going to accept the violence enacted upon them and the cancellation of their rights?

If the people of the Western World will not defend their freeom, they will not have it.  

In this short VIDEO, I will unearth A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago

In the next crisis these lost skills will be more valuable than gold, food supplies and survival equipment combined. These skills have been tested and proven to work for centuries.

Here is just a small glimpse of what you’ll find in this massive 300-page sequel (in color) to The Lost Ways:

  • A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago. This mysterious dish was just recently rediscovered by NASA who has been giving away rations of it to our brave men and women in their month-long space missions. The Incas stored it in pit holes for up to 10 years, ate it year-round, and actually used it to survive a 4 year long super-drought that wiped out their southern neighbors. So, if it managed to save the Incas centuries ago and it still works for our astronauts today, you can bet your last dollar it will keep you and your family well fed in any crisis. And the best part is that you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

The U.S. Is on the Path to Destruction. Descending Dystopias: America Faces 2021

It is given to few countries to face a future without any bright sides. Those that have done so in the past, have usually confronted overwhelming external challenges, perhaps compounded by internal difficulties. In the case of the United States today, that is not the case. To be sure, there are external challenges with both allies and competitors. But in a very real sense, America today – like so many Western countries – is its own worst enemy, and it may well portend the death of our Constitutional order if not the country itself.

The general election of 2020 will be the stuff of argument and analysis for many years to come, here and abroad. Suffice to say here that a panicky over-reaction to the onset of the COVID-19 virus produced economic hardship and social disorder, compounded by months of riots, looting and arson afflicting hundreds of cities (almost all Democrat-governed) beginning in late May 2020. All of this set the stage for an election won overwhelmingly on November 3rd by President Donald Trump and lost by him in the following weeks to his Democrat opponent. Joseph Biden, as dumps of hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots appeared in dubious circumstances amidst widespread allegations of fraud and lawsuits challenging the outcome.

The Paths to Dystopia

At this point, only an anarchist or a radical (both of which seem to abound in the modern Democrat party) believing that from chaos arises their utopia would view the future with a sense of satisfaction. I am neither, and while I am not inherently a pessimist, I simply see no way forward that does not present one form or another of disaster – a true dystopia, differing only in type and degree of violence.

What I can say at this point is that the Democrat strategy led them to a victory of sorts in the aftermath of the general election, and set the stage for the dystopias likely to emerge. That strategy had three elements: First, they had deeply flawed presidential and vice presidential candidates – the former in at best questionable mental health with a great deal of family baggage, the latter so weak as a presidential contender she dropped out of the race after the second debate and before the first Democrat primary in Iowa. Their public exposure therefore needed to be limited, especially that of Biden, who simply had to be kept out of the public eye as much as possible.

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

Second, the Democrats had “on call” large numbers of left-wing and/or paid Antifa and BLM (Black Lives Matter) “streeties” (street fighters) with a demonstrated proclivity for violence and a willingness to use the tools of rioting, looting, arson and intimidation for months on end. These people added to the disruption already caused by the over-reaction to the onset of COVID-19, doing their worst with little or no resistance from Democrat mayors and governors whose cities they looted and burned – and often with the implicit or explicit approval of those officials. The hesitation and unwillingness of the President to do what these mayors and governors would not, and restore order, only emboldened these streeties.

And third, the Democrats had on their side a mainstream and social media that was all but united in its opposition to President Trump, and had been since at least 2016. For all intents and purposes, these platforms functioned as a propaganda arm of the Democrat National Committee (DNC). The DNC knew that no matter how much their candidate fumbled around, the media would conceal it from the American public, and no matter what Trump did well, to the American people he would be condemned. The media – especially the social media platforms – could be depended on to censor anyone raising differing views critical of Biden or the Democrats, and they did just that. And when widespread and visible election fraud occurred in numerous states in the immediate aftermath of the general election, the media mimicked the three monkeys who neither saw nor heard nor especially said anything about it.

The Dystopias Ahead

It seems to me that navigating the waters between Scylla and Charybdis would be child’s play compared to managing the limited array of dystopias awaiting the American people as we edge toward 2021. There is simply no longer any safe passage, nor any safe outcome, and there is no point in deluding ourselves into thinking otherwise.

The first of the four possible dystopias I envision is I’ll call the “cancel culture” dystopia, because that is what its dominant theme will be. It is also the one with the least overt violence: Biden and Harris are inaugurated on January 20, 2021 (although how long Biden will be kept in place is very much an open question). Disgruntled Trump supporters grumble, but do no more, nor is there any reason to expect more from them. For years they have let Leftists do great damage to our society, with nothing more than brief protests – and few enough of them. For months this year, they let Antifa and BLM mobs ruin cities, intimidate and even kill citizens – and while they rallied against them and for Trump, they did not lift a finger to stop them.

This dystopia will see the whole “woke/social justice” agenda pursued with active Federal support and intervention. Mandated diversity will be the order of the day, offending statues or names or books will be removed, and the America that was will not be, culturally, morally or politically. And the enfranchisement of illegal aliens now in the United States, coupled with the end of immigration control (ICE), will bring a large voting bloc into the Democrat camp – making us for all practical purposes a one-party state at the national level. There’ll likely be sporadic resistance at some point, but with the armed forces and intelligence agencies at the administration’s beck and call – trust them to put people in charge who WILL do their bidding – not much will come of them. The American experiment will be over.

The second alternative is the “civil war” dystopia. In this scenario, after weeks of Biden proclaiming and being proclaimed President-elect, the 2020 general election is flipped and Trump is declared the winner – as in fact he was and should be, absent mountains of Democrat-run fraud. It does not matter how this comes to pass: a SCOTUS ruling discarding some or all mail-in ballots, state legislatures de-certifying pro-Biden electors and certifying pro-Trump electors giving Trump a majority in the Electoral College, a vote in the House of Representatives certifying Trump as President and in the Senate certifying Pence as Vice President, whatever – no matter how it happens, Trump is in, Biden is out, and the Left will go absolutely berserk. Indeed, the difference between the likely behavior of disappointed Trump partisans and disappointed Biden partisans is proof positive that the Democrats should never again be trusted with national (or other) power.

This is a bloody future, make no mistake about it, and I can understand why 7 members of the SCOTUS – including all three of Trump’s appointees – shied away from hearing the Texas lawsuit which might well have led to it. Its beginning would make the orgy of rioting, looting, arson and general mayhem from late May 2020 on seem like a garden party. However reluctant conservatives generally might be to take up their weapons and fight, they would have no choice but to do that for their own survival and that of their families. The states would split, and not along obvious geographical lines: the bluest of blue states has conservative sections, and most red states have large urban areas with black majorities that are Democrat strongholds. How Asians and Hispanics would split is anyone’s guess.

Add to this the reality that the military will split politically if not racially: The POTUS can Federalize the National Guard but the National Guard in disaffected states like Oregon and Washington may not all obey. Navies and air forces are traditionally the most vulnerable to revolutionary propaganda, having the most people who have gone through college and thus been exposed (in the case of the U.S.) to the same “cultural Marxist” indoctrination as their civilian counterparts. Even the Army and Marine Corps are not immune – does no one recall the photos a few years back of a group of graduating black female West Point cadets giving the “black power” salute while in uniform? None was disciplined, they are likely captains today, and they are NOT alone out there. POTUS and conservatives can prevail, but it will be a close-run thing, and the country will be torn asunder. One shudders to think what other countries will do as this unfolds.

The third and very grim prospect is the “endless civil war” dystopia – akin to an American internal variant of Europe’s gruesome Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648). This conflict never really ends on its own, although external intervention might eventually bring that about. There are the same splits as in the preceding example. Contending governments are declared in different places, each claiming to represent the entire country – expect them to come and go like leaves in a high wind. This may well remove the U.S. from the roster of nations as it essentially consumes itself. And as for losses? Well, one estimate is that in the Thirty Years’ War, one-third of the population of the German states died. I expect to at least match that in this dystopia.

The fourth and final dystopia is a true “Orwellian world,” an unholy blend of 1984 and Animal Farm – and I apologize to the spirit of George Orwell if I unwittingly have taken him out of context. It is the same in most respects as the second dystopia, with one key difference: the Marxist or neo-Marxist (however one thinks of it) Left wins the civil war, defeats Trump and his conservative supporters, and at least nominally brings a Democrat party to power – minus Biden, of course, but he would be long gone in any case. Want a precedent? Think Russia in 1921 at the end of its civil war, when the Bolsheviks defeated the Whites and their foreign allies. Think of what followed in the Soviet Union, in relatively short order. What happens in the Democratic People’s Republic of America (or whatever it comes to be called) is likely to be far, far worse.

The Path Not Taken?

Am I exaggerating the alternatives awaiting America? No. Could America have averted this dismal fork in a more than muddy, bloody road? Ultimately, no – the rot has been festering in our colleges and universities and in our society at large for too long: those committed to the erasing of our history and the destruction of our culture and system of government have used the very freedoms we treasured to cloak their activities. Had Trump invoked the Insurrection Act no later than early June, arrested some of the most outrageous Democrat mayors and governors for sedition, and sent regular troops – Marines and Airborne preferably – to some of the most violent cities with orders to crush the riots, it might well have bought time. But we are where we are, and that is the end of it.

These outcomes are not equally likely. The first is most likely to occur; the third and fourth are possible but not probable. The second is the wild card, a real unknown: Trump made serious mistakes but the fraud was very real. How much do his supporters really care? I have only one piece of advice: If you fight, make damn sure you win – because if you lose, we lose everything, and there will be no second chance for generations – if ever.

Here is just a small glimpse of what you’ll find in this massive 300-page sequel (in color) to The Lost Ways:

How the Black Death Radically Changed the Course of History And What that Can Teach us About the Coronavirus’ Potential to do the Same

In other words, the virus is calling the shots, which is the singular reason for the protracted probable depth and length of the coming post-virus urban hangover even as increasing numbers of states elect to reopen. And the longer that businesses are in limbo and shoppers in large numbers remain leery of crowds, the worse the economic fallout will be. “Without an effective testing and tracing infrastructure in place, ‘re-opening’ is just a synonym for ‘second wave of the pandemic,’” Erik Brynjolffson, a professor at MIT, tweeted few months ago.

One conspicuous fallout is a potentially final blow to Main Street — the future likelihood that, when you walk or drive down your favorite roads, many of the shops and restaurants you love won’t reopen. In an April 22 note to clients, Barclays said Covid-19 had accelerated what it calls the “retail death curve,” the shift of business to e-commerce. Over the coming five years, 30% to 40% of still-existing physical shops will close, the bank said. Neighborhood shops hoping to survive may have to feature cashierless technology resembling Amazon Go, vending machine sales, and kiosks offering grab-and-go clothing combinations such as T-shirts, jeans, and jackets.

It will be the same with restaurant takeout and delivery. Restaurants will be far from finished as an urban thing. Some restaurants will vanish, but others will arise in their place. Dining out, however, may no longer be the main alternative to cooking at home. The winners will be Amazon and Uber, Walmart, DoorDash, and Target, whose boom in delivery will grow at almost everyone else’s expense. Other emerging businesses, perhaps to support the unicorns, will be reliable, close-at-hand farms growing enough food so the nearby city needn’t worry about future pandemic disruptions, said Alice Charles, a cities analyst for the World Economic Forum.

Much of our current aversion to crowds will dissipate with time. Richard Florida, a professor at the University of Toronto, said that after the 1918–1919 flu pandemic, it took five or six years until people got comfortable taking trains again but that ultimately they did. “There was short-term adaptation and then no long-term change,” Florida said. It’s hard to know what residue of the Covid-19 pandemic will remain with us long-term — an obsession with disinfectant? Different dating practices? “Hindsight suggests that some behavioral and societal changes spurred by a pandemic can be lasting,” Barclays said, “and a vaccine may not be available for at least another year, at which point behaviors could be more ingrained.”

The Taiwanese capital of Taipei is an example of how a city can reopen before a treatment or vaccine are created. In the city, temperatures seem to be taken at every building entrance — at shops, malls, apartments, schools, workplaces, and offices. IDs are checked on the way in and out of apartment buildings. Movements are tracked by cellphones. If you have just arrived in the country, you are subject to a 14-day quarantine. Today, the island’s case count for the entire pandemic is 429 with six deaths.

That is not how the story ends in American cities. For us, life is likely to return to normal only when herd immunity is reached, Covid-19 burns itself out, or a treatment or a vaccine takes its course.

Bythe measure of the 2008–2009 crash, the Covid-19 recession should propel Generation Z to flock to the urban core and reignite the fortunes of New York and Chicago. But powerful counterforces suggest that history may not repeat nor even rhyme. One of them is the probable duration of social distancing, the depth of the economic downturn, and the hit to city comforts. The greater anti-urban force, though, may be geopolitics.

Even before the virus, President Donald Trump’s trade war with Beijing had initiated a decoupling of the U.S. and Chinese economies. Last year, U.S. manufacturing imports from China dropped 17%, “evidence that U.S. companies were starting to significantly” shift away from a reliance on Chinese goods suppliers, according to a recent report by Kearney, a consulting firm. Now, Covid-19 looks likely to accelerate the decoupling. The driver is how the virus laid bare the perilous fragility of globally stretched supply lines. U.S. companies will want far more diverse sources of parts and places to manufacture. “Companies will bring their strategic stockpiles closer to the U.S., maybe to Mexico,” said Sridhar Tayur, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

But the shift may directly affect U.S. cities, too, because some companies will bring factories back home. Michele Acuto, director of the Connected Cities Lab at the University of Melbourne, said that the U.S. lacks sufficient numbers of engineers to restore manufacturing at scale. But to the degree manufacturing does return, companies will shun expensive urban centers and intensify the buildup of city outskirts, where there is cheap, plentiful land and access to labor and transportation. “Rebounding manufacturing jobs would probably favor suburbs and red-leaning counties,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed. Lily Fang, a professor at France’s Insead, said medical technology — China is often the singular provider of critically needed pharmaceuticals and medical gear — is a primary example of an industry that would return to the U.S. and specifically to smaller cities. “Paris will still be Paris,” Fang said, using her own capital as a proxy for our great cities. “But it reduces the distance between Paris and the rest of the country.”

Always, pandemics seem to lead to a scapegoat — often perceived outsiders. During the Roaring ’20s, the U.S. went into an immigrant scare. Among those ringing the alarm was Calvin Coolidge, then governor of Massachusetts, who argued that the U.S. had become a “dumping ground” for “the vicious, the weak of body, the shiftless or the improvident.” The United States needed “the right kind of immigration,” he said. In 1921 and 1924, Congress passed a new quota system that clamped down on the immigration of eastern and southern Europeans and banned Asians outright. The closure of borders hit the U.S. with almost immediate effect and lasted for four decades: a 68% plunge in U.S. patents in the fields where the blocked immigrants worked, including electrochemistry, fluid dynamics, and mathematical analysis, according to a recent paper co-authored by Petra Moser, a professor at New York University. The innovation drought continued through 1965 when the Johnson administration’s Immigration Act reopened the country.

On April 22, Trump ordered narrow new restrictions on immigration that largely affected the families of green-card holders, and Moser says the hit to innovation is likely to repeat. “Our research suggests that blocking immigration today will damage U.S. science and innovation and that any damage may persist for a very long time,” Moser said. “Even when such policies have targeted low-skilled immigration, they are likely to discourage scientists and other high-skilled immigrants from the same countries to come to the United States.”

Even in a Hobbesian age of one nation, one state, and one city against the other, the pandemic is making a lot of people at least silently concede that we are all in this together.

Moser also says that the new law seems likely to accelerate the shrinkage of major cities across the country. Some 85% of U.S. immigrants live in the top 100 metro areas, according to a report last year by the New American Economy, a pro-immigration think tank. From 2014 to 2017, the population would have declined without immigration in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Memphis, Tennessee; San Jose, California; Dayton, Ohio; Omaha, Nebraska; and St. Louis, Missouri. The new loss of immigrants will morph into a worker shortage in certain professions: Foreign-born U.S. residents are 34% of the health care workers in El Paso, Texas; 18% in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and 16% in Tuscon, Arizona, for instance.

Some of the country’s most important companies have launched during adverse times, going back to the depressions of the late 19th and early 20th centuries (GE, GM, IBM) and right up to the last financial crash (Square, WhatsApp, Slack). Cities seem likely to continue to be founts of creativity. But they will be hobbled by Trump’s immigration crackdown.

Brynjolffson, the MIT professor and co-author of the classic on automation, The Second Machine Age, said the Trump administration’s immigration policy had already had a “clear negative effect” on innovation in his own lab. “It’s not just the written rules but also the people enforcing them who have now become much more nitpicky: delaying responses, being uncooperative, and denying visits for minor mistakes or bureaucratic obstacles,” Brynjolffson said.

“The key thing to understand is that [U.S.-born] American researchers and innovators are not hurt when the U.S. is a talent magnet, and neither is the general public,” he said. “On the contrary, immigration is a big part of what has made Silicon Valley, the Boston area, and many other parts of the U.S. so innovative, increasing everyone’s living standards. Forcing innovators to do their work in other countries hurts the U.S. in the long run.”

Roger Keil, a professor at York University, points out that urban life has already changed from what it was a few months ago. “Being urban is about freedom and mingling,” he said. “But now we are prisoners in our homes.”

Yet it is not all bad in the city. Even in a Hobbesian age of one nation, one state, and one city against the other, the pandemic is somewhat breaking through the usual hardcore divide and making a lot of people at least silently concede that we are all in this together. The virus, says Rebecca Katz, a professor at Georgetown University, is showing cities that they need each other. While Trump parcels out blame, local political leaders are forming alliances. Largely they are governors — on the West Coast, in the East, and in the Midwest. But at their core are the big cities that dominate them. “Governors and cities are taking this approach because of a lack of national leadership,” Katz says.

This is a global trend. For instance, in order to protect their own populations, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Vietnam have stopped new rice exports. As a response, seven food-importing and -exporting countries have formed a pandemic trading union. Australia, Canada, Chile, New Zealand, Myanmar, Brunei, and Singapore have agreed to keep their own mutual supply lines open regardless of conditions.

All this détente is a gigantic black eye for another epidemic: populism. Countries where garrulous demagoguery has taken root over the last four or so years — the U.S., the U.K., and Brazil, for instance — have shown themselves to be less-adept crisis managers than technocratic places like Singapore, Denmark, Austria, Germany, South Korea, and Taiwan. Pushan Dutt, a Singapore-based professor for Insead, the French graduate business school, notes that all the latter countries are electoral democracies, putting the kibosh on the idea that you can only effectively impose pandemic strictures if you are a king. These countries learned the lessons of the last pandemics, had plans in place, and executed them. The U.S. government also had a plan in place but distrusted “the deep state.” The resulting chaos has left what successes there have been to old-fashioned city mayors and state governors.

“The rise of populism in the West is proving very expensive in this crisis,” Dutt says. “The correct dichotomy isn’t between democratic and autocratic countries. It’s between competence and incompetence.”

That thought, while reassuring politically, still doesn’t leave much room for comfort if you live in a city where it does matter if the trains run on time — and whether you feel safe riding on them.
