If you'd like to avoid all of the tempting sales this weekend, here are some things you can do that can help you free up some extra cash for your holiday budget or simply improve your budget:

·         Put together a holiday budget: If you still need to plan your holiday expenditures, spend some time figuring out how much you have to spend and what you'll need to spend. Then figure out how you might cover the difference.

·         Sell some stuff: With so much shopping going on this week, why not post some things for sale on eBay or other selling sites and earn some of what everyone else is spending?

·         Start a side gig: An additional income stream can be a wise move right now, given the current economic climate. Spend the long weekend finally getting that side gig started, or search for a part-time job opportunity.

·         Do a mini pantry challenge: Clean out and organize your pantry, fridge and freezer and plan meals you can make with the ingredients and foods you have on hand. Avoid the grocery store for the next few weeks and use the extra cash for the holidays.

·         Shop for new auto insurance: Insurance companies might not offer Black Friday deals, but it doesn't mean you can't score some discounts. (You can get quotes here.) Even if you don't shop for new coverage, review your current coverage to ensure you're getting all of the discounts that apply to you.

 

   13 Things You Can Scavenge From Cars After The SHTF

Cars are everywhere. If you're anywhere near a city when the SHTF, you'll come across thousands of them. And if the disaster is severe enough, many of these vehicles will be abandoned. Why does this matter? Because there are many survival items you can scavenge from abandoned vehicles.

Some people will object to this article, saying it's wrong to take what isn't yours. Normally I'd agree, but I believe morality varies depending on the circumstances. If you're in a situation where an apparently abandoned vehicle has items in it that you need to survive, then I would argue that you're morally obligated to take them. If not for yourself, then for your family.

Besides, you could find yourself in a scenario where your own car breaks down or is totaled, in which case you might want to make use of its parts. In case either of these things ever happens to you, here are 13 things you can scavenge from vehicles...

12 Energy-Saving Tips for Your Apartment

You don’t need to own your home to reduce your utility bills. We’ve put together a list of energy-saving tips to help apartment dwellers save.

DIY Cooking Spray

Since I cook and bake a lot, I was buying cooking spray frequently. Finally, I decided to make my own. I mix one cup of shortening, one cup of flour, and two tablespoons of vegetable oil. I mix it up and keep it in an old butter tub in the fridge. I use a crumpled-up paper towel to spread it on my pans.

Saving on Carpet Cleaning

I clean carpets for a living. If you want to clean your carpets yourself, mix 1/2 cap of liquid laundry detergent to about a gallon of water in a bucket. Scrub soiled areas with a stiff brush. Get the carpet pretty wet to make sure it gets clean. Load a home machine with hot water only, no soap. You'll just be using the machine to rinse. Dry by using a fan.

It's cheap, and it will save you the cost of bringing in a professional.

Stakeholder capitalism is global fascism by another name

Stakeholder capitalism is global fascism by another name

The concept of "fascism" was originally entered into the Encyclopedia Italiana by Italian philosopher Giovanni Gentile, who stated that "Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Benito Mussolini would later take credit for the quote as if he had written it himself, but it's important to note because it outlines the primary purpose of the ideology rather than simply throwing the label around at people we don't like as a dishonest means to undermine their legitimacy.

Despite the fact that leftists today often attack conservatives as "fascists" because of our desire to protect national boundaries and western heritage, the truth is that all fascism is deeply rooted in leftist philosophies and thinkers.

Mussolini was a long-time socialist, a member of the party who greatly admired Karl Marx. He deviated from the socialists over their desire to remain neutral during WWI and went on to champion a combination of socialism and nationalism, what we now know as fascism. Adolph Hitler was also a socialist and admirer of Karl Marx, much like Mussolini. It is actually hard to find where Marx, the communists and the fascists actually deviate from each other. Nationalism seems to be one of the few points of contention.

Though Marx saw the existence of nation-states as temporary to the proletariat and to the ruling class, he noted that the industrialists were erasing national boundaries anyway. Marx argues in the Communist Manifesto with some optimism:

National differences and antagonisms between peoples are already tending to disappear more and more, owing to the development of the bourgeoisie, the growth of free trade and a world market, and the increasing uniformity of industrial processes and of corresponding conditions of life.

As we have seen over and over again in history, the natural progression of Marxism, communism, socialism, etc. all ultimately lead to a kind of globalism and erasure of cultural separation. Some think this is a good thing, but it is actually quite poisonous. Globalism requires an overarching social dynamic, a single hive mind, otherwise it cannot survive. If people have the ability to choose or create better options (or different options) for living, then globalism loses significance. The existence of choice has to be erased, and this is a behavior that the political left has fully embraced. You are allowed to believe whatever you want, as long as it does not conflict with what they believe.

This is a form of globalism that corporate elites are actively creating. Mussolini's fascism is the root of the very corporate-engineered global governance that leftists today applaud and lust after. They have far more in common with fascists than they realize.

That said, it is the original definition of fascism that I want to focus on here because what we are seeing today is a kind of rebranding of leftist fascism as something called "stakeholder capitalism." It is a term often used by globalists at the World Economic Forum and the head of the WEF, Klaus Schwab. The media-friendly definition of stakeholder capitalism is: A form of capitalism in which companies do not only optimize short-term profits for shareholders, but seek long-term value creation, by considering the needs of all their stakeholders, and society at large.

But who are "all stakeholders" in the opinion of the WEF?

Well, according to Klaus Schwab they are all of human civilization, of course, now and in the future. In other words, the goal of SHC is for corporate leaders to take responsibility for the entire world, not just their own employees, shareholders and profits. And such leaders would not be acting as individuals, they would be acting as a collective. In other words, SHC requires all major corporations to act as a single unit with a single purpose and a unified collectivist ideology. An ideological monopoly posing as separate corporate entities.

As Klaus Schwab states:

The most important characteristic of the stakeholder model today is that the stakes of our system are now more clearly global. Economies, societies, and the environment are more closely linked to each other now than 50 years ago. The model we present here is therefore fundamentally global in nature, and the two primary stakeholders are as well.

...What was once seen as externalities in national economic policymaking and individual corporate decision making will now need to be incorporated or internalized in the operations of every government, company, community and individual. The planet is thus the center of the global economic system, and its health should be optimized in the decisions made by all other stakeholders.

The SHC concept is deceptive on its very face because it pretends as if corporations will be held accountable by the public within some form of "business democracy," as if the people will have a vote on what the corporations do. In reality, it is corporations telling the public what is acceptable to think and do and corporations in conjunction with governments using their power to hold the public accountable if people do not agree.

Ironically, these same unified corporations use the shield of "private property" and business rights as a means to control society without repercussions. After all, a primary principle of conservatives is private property, thus stepping in to disrupt corporate governance would be violating one of our own beloved ideals. It sounds like a Catch-22 but it's really not.

It's important to note that corporations are at their very core a socialist concept: They are created through government charter, allowed legal personhood and given special protections from the government. They are not free market entities and Adam Smith, the originator of most free market ideals, stood against corporations (what he called "joint stock companies") as destructive and prone to monopoly. As long as they receive protections from the government, corporations should not enjoy the same private property protections as regular businesses do.

They are parasitic creations, alien to the natural business world. They should be dismantled.

SHC is also an incredibly arrogant premise because it assumes that corporate leaders have the wisdom or objective intelligence to expand their role beyond business and into social and political spheres. This has already happened in many respects with much chaos created, but open corporate governance is the end game, and it is anything but objective or benevolent.

What are some examples of this kind of corporate/political governance (fascism) in action?



How about Big Tech social media censorship leaning heavily against conservatives and liberty activists? How about evidence of collusion between Big Tech companies and the government, such as the Biden administration working closely with Twitter and Facebook to actively remove voices and viewpoints they don't like? How about corporate leaders colluding to destroy conservative-based social media competitors like Parler?

Corporations run by leftists/globalists work together to create an ideological monopoly and then censor people who stand against their beliefs. There is not much that people can do about it because if they create an alternative and it gets too big, the corporations band together to eliminate that alternative.

How about ESG loans funded by corporate backers such as BlackRock or globalist nonprofits like the Rockefeller Foundation?

If all corporate lenders apply ESG to their loan practices, then in order to get any loan a person or business would have to adopt leftist social ideologies and dubious environmental claims. ESG is monetary incentives created by corporate government to keep all other businesses in line. If it continues, ESG will wipe out all other political organizations in the span of a single generation.

And, what about the Council for Inclusive Capitalism? This is the most blatant expression of open global fascism I have ever seen, with money elites and politicians working in concert with religious leaders like Pope Francis to institute a single centralized world governing platform. They aren't even trying to hide the conspiracy anymore, it's right out in the open.

Schwab takes special care to mention often that global crisis events are the "opportunity" that is needed to push the public into the arms of Stakeholder Capitalism. Meaning, he thinks that widespread fear and desperation must exist (or be engineered) to perpetuate the SHC framework quickly. Obviously, the globalists are on a shrinking timeline and it's hard to say why. More than likely, they understand to some degree that if they go too slow the public will mount a defense and stop them.

They will conjure up all kinds of distractions and scapegoats to prevent the public from hitting them back. They'll aim us at Russia, they'll aim us at China, they'll aim us at useful idiots among the leftists. They'll aim Russia, China and the leftists at us. They will try to send us to war, they will call us insurrectionists, they will call us terrorists, they will say we started the whole collapse. None of this matters. What matters is that the globalists at the top pay the price for the harm they cause. When the head of the snake is removed, only then can we sort out who is to blame, who are the heroes, who are the villains, and who were the idiots.

To truth and knowledge,

Brandon Smith

Thursday is Thanksgiving, which means this coming Friday is Black Friday. What was once one day of sales has now become a more-than-week-long event. First are the pre-Black Friday deals. Then there are the Black Friday deals that last through the weekend that lead up to Cyber Monday. This can be a good week to save money on necessary holiday purchases. Or a week to blow your budget…and the USPS holiday surcharge on all shipping is discouraging the shipment of gifts…we’re sending checks only this year-screw the GREEDY USPS!

11 Emergency Skills to Learn While There's Still Time

For years, I’ve heard one financial guru after another talk about a pending financial collapse. For the most part, they were concerned about the rising national debt, although they typically had something else to go along with that.

But there’s a difference now; before, the people predicting financial doom were somewhat on the fringe; now it’s mainstream financial analysts and advisors saying so. Some of the heads of the biggest financial institutions are warning about the rocky financial times to come. 

Even without that, we can all see the problems that inflation and shortages are causing our country. People who normally live from paycheck to paycheck are finding that their paycheck no longer reaches until the next week. They are having to make decisions on what critical things they won’t pay for, so that they can make sure that they have other things they’ll need...

5 Ways To Bake Bread When The Power Is Out

As one of the oldest foods, bread is a staple in many diets that is important in a survival situation. Bread, either with or without yeast, is often the foundation of a meal. Bread is a great side dish to help boost caloric intake during an emergency, and it can stand alone as a meal if needed.

When the SHTF, it is highly likely that you won’t have power or access to the grid. So, how do you make this staple food without using electricity? We know that variations of bread have been made for centuries, so it definitely can be done without a modern power grid. 

It is important to think outside the box when it comes to making food in a blackout. Really, a modern oven is just a fancy heated box, and you likely have other things you can use already. A blackout shouldn’t be a reason to let your family go hungry...
