Beware political 'power'

New Gallup Poll-Americans Hate Their Government

Faced with mounting criticism over his handling of troops in Afghanistan, vaccine mandates, illegal immigration, the Federal debt and a market decline, and his own classified documents scandal, President Joe Biden will eventually do what every brave elitist of the elected class has done before him: he will appoint a commission.

It will ostensibly be to investigate something, but will in reality distract the masses.

Commissions, you see, give the brave elected class cover to do the "hard work." No, not raising taxes and cutting spending. That's easy for them. The hard work is listening to what they see as a sniveling constituency unhappy that they just lost more of their money and freedom at the hands of a fascist regime.

If the appointed commission — which surely has only the best interests of the country in mind — says that such-and-such needs to be implemented, then so be it, Congress can say, we had no choice, the commission made us do it. End of story.

So the elitist fascist president will take elitist fascists from the political class, tell them to assemble a group of like-minded individuals and will charge them with coming up with a plan to "investigate" whatever it is their plan tells them to.

Many voters have been saying that the people will be able to right the ship of state come November of 2024.

Do we have that long?

Even if we do, state-based Democrats have made it clear they plan to poke the electorate in the eye with a sharp stick on everything from taking away gun rights to paying millions in "reparations" to handouts for illegal immigrants to anything else they think they can pass laws for... and then pass more legislation mandating you thank them for the poke!

More distraction

In the U.S. Congress, the Republican Party, which had already earned the appellation "the Stupid Party" based on its abandonment of moral and genuine conservative principles as well as its inability to lead in Congress — not that the Democrats are any better, mind you, because their claims to morality and principle are even more ludicrous! — will also begin to investigate Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and anything else that will take the focus off their social and financial intransigence.

The U.S. Government has turned its attention from its constitutional duty of assuring the general welfare of Americans to assuring the general welfare of the global elite and their globaloney economy.

The current "election process" is devious political demagoguery. The whole purpose of the political charade is the further advance of altruism. What a scam and what deception.

In former times, any ideal form of government instituted by a unified people was understood to be a natural outcome of that people's political, cultural, moral and spiritual cohesion and excellence. Today there is only one type of government that seems to be ideal, and that is democracy, a form of government expressly rejected by the American founders.



The strategy for authoritarianism throughout the ages is to divide and conquer. Now listen! All "public forums" are presented as opposing sides, or opposing politics, or opposing theology, or opposing morality.

Republicans claim to have the corner on genuine conservatism, much as Democrats claim to have the corner on genuine liberalism. Both claims are untrue but are perceived as true thanks to mass deception.

Today's pseudo-conservatives are particularly adept at leading astray large numbers of middle-class Americans, especially Christians, patriots and other good folks. Also, if not for the consistent acquiescence of Republican "conservatives" to the collectivist agenda, America would have retained its limited, constitutional Republic, even in this "sophisticated" day and age.

What I am writing here will challenge your mind and test your discernment.

I think that readers of this letter are advanced enough to evaluate reality. You, reader of these Alerts, have broken out above mental barriers (establishment words). You have broken the code words and phrases that inhibit the thought patterns of the crowd. You have achieved a perception of reality totally different from your neighbor.

The deception is that achievement, success and happiness come by power — and having the people identify with whoever is in political power — rather than by restraints upon power; liberals champion the power of the state, black power, pink power and "empowerment," while pseudo-conservatives promote police power, military power and so forth.

Power is what Lucifer deceivingly promised to a fasting and praying Christ in the wilderness.

Somehow, we need to focus on adjusting our private lives to the reality of government power closing in. We should be in shock over it.

Since you most likely cannot persuade your friends to wake up to this shock, spend your mental energy on your own survival and preservation of wealth. These Alerts are all about developing the mental capacity to understand the seriousness of criminal politics in America and the will to preserve your assets and your intellectual freedom.

Never think that as long as you are a law-abiding citizen, you have nothing to fear.

Yours for the truth,

Bob Livingston

13 Things to Do Before the Economy Collapses

I once shared an article on Facebook about the potential for an economic collapse in the near future, and someone left a comment saying, “Why do I keep hearing this warning over and over for years, and yet nothing ever happens?” Good question. When people keep saying that the sky is falling and it never does, it’s hard not to be skeptical.

As I said in my response to him, “After the stock market crash in 2008, everyone started claiming an economic collapse was about to happen, but what they didn’t realize is that it DID happen… in 2008. Since then, the economy has slowly been recovering. But the systemic problems that led to the crash were never corrected, and the bubble has been re-inflating. It can’t re-inflate forever.”

To stop the economy from completely collapsing into chaos, the Federal Reserve had to print huge sums of money to prop up Wall Street. Then they had to do it again during the Covid recession. But every time they do this, they print even more money than before, and the bubble re-inflates and gets even bigger. The larger it gets, the larger the next crash will be...

The Dollar Collapse is now in motion

Money Saving Tips

The decline of a currency's world reserve status is often a long process rife with denials. There are numerous economic "experts" out there that have been dismissing any and all warnings of dollar collapse for years. They just don't get it, or they don't want to get it. The idea that the U.S. currency could ever be dethroned as the defacto global trade mechanism is impossible in their minds.

One of the key pillars keeping the dollar in place as the world reserve is its petro-status, and this factor is often held up as the reason why the Greenback cannot fail. The other argument is that the dollar is backed by the full force of the U.S. military, and the U.S. military is backed by the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve. In other words, the dollar is backed by... the dollar; it's a very circular and silly position.

These sentiments are not only pervasive among mainstream economists, but they are also all over the place within the alternative media. I suspect the main hang-up of liberty movement analysts is the notion that the globalist establishment would ever allow the dollar or the U.S. economy to fail. Isn't the dollar system their "golden goose"?

The answer is no, it is not their golden goose. The dollar is just another stepping stone toward their goal of a one-world economy and a one-world currency. They have killed the world reserve status of other currencies in the past, why wouldn't they do the same to the dollar?

Globalist white papers and essays specifically outline the need for a diminished role for the U.S. currency as well as a decline in the American economy in order to make way for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and a new global currency system controlled by the IMF. I warned about this years ago, and my position has always been that the derailment of the dollar would likely start with the end of its petro status.

In 2017 I noted that the sudden power shift over to crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman signaled a change in Saudi Arabia's relationship with the U.S. I stated that:

To understand how drastic this coup has been, consider this — for decades Saudi Kings maintained political balance by doling out vital power positions to separate, carefully chosen successors. Positions such as Defense Minister, the Interior Ministry and the head of the National Guard. Today, Mohammed Bin Salman controls all three positions. Foreign policy, defense matters, oil and economic decisions and social changes are now all in the hands of one man.

The rise of MBS was backed by something called the Public Investment Fund (PIF), a fund comprised of trillions of dollars supplied by globalists within Carlyle Group (Bush family, etc.), Goldman Sachs, Blackstone and Blackrock. MBS garnered the favor of the globalists for one specific reason. He openly backed their Vision For 2030, a plan for the dismantling of "fossil fuel" based energy and the implementation of carbon controls. Yes, that's right, the head of Saudi Arabia is backing the end of oil, and part of that includes the end of the dollar as the petro currency.

In 2017 I stated that:

I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been the symbiosis between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been the single most important key to the dollar remaining as the petrocurrency from the very beginning.

I believed that the threat to petro status would ultimately be spurred on by a proxy war between East and West. I noted that:

World economic war is the real name of the game here, as the globalists play puppeteers to East and West. It is a geopolitical crisis they will have created to engineer public support for a solution they predetermined.

Back then I thought that such a proxy war would be initiated in the Middle East, possibly in Iran. However, it's clear that Ukraine is the powder keg the globalists have chosen, at least for now.

In the years since I made these predictions, the relationship between Saudi Arabia, Russia and China has grown very close. Arms deals and energy deals are becoming a mainstay of trade, and this has led to a quiet but steady distancing of the Saudis from the dollar. This past week, the dominoes were set in motion for dollar collapse when Saudi Arabia announced at Davos that they are now willing to trade oil in alternative currencies.

In response, Xi Jinping pledged to ramp up efforts to promote the use of the Chinese yuan in energy deals. This falls in line with another article I wrote in 2017 in which I how conflict with Eastern nations (China and Russia) would be exploited to create a catalyst for the end of the dollar's petro status.

The importance of the Saudi announcement cannot be overstated; this is the beginning of the end of the dollar. The dollar's world reserve status is largely dependent on its petro-status. Without one, you cannot have the other. This is almost the exact same dynamic that led to the implosion of the British Sterling decades ago as the global petro currency which resulted in the rise of the dollar to take its place.

This time, though, it will not be a single foreign currency that takes on the role of world reserve, it will be a basket currency system controlled by the IMF called Special Drawing Rights, along with a single global digital currency that is yet to be named but is now under development.

The consequences of the loss of reserve status will be devastating to the U.S. economy. It is the only glue holding our system together. The ability to defer inflation by exporting it overseas is a superpower only the U.S. enjoys. The Fed can print money perpetually if it wants to in order to fund the government or prop up U.S. markets, as long as foreign central banks and corporate banks are willing to absorb dollars as a tool for global trade. If the dollar is no longer the primary international trade mechanism, the trillions upon trillions of dollars the Fed has printed from thin air over the years will all come flooding back to the U.S. through various avenues, and hyperinflation (or hyperstagflation) will be the result. It would be a veritable disaster.




This dynamic is already in play, as foreign holders of U.S. debt and dollars have been dumping them at a record pace since 2017. The process continues at a time when the Federal Reserve is cutting its balance sheet and raising interest rates, which means there is no longer a buyer of last resort.

The effects of the decline of the dollar may not be immediately felt or become obvious for another year or two. What will happen is consistent inflation on top of the high prices we are already dealing with. Meaning, the Federal Reserve will continue to hold interest rates higher, and prices will barely budge, or they will climb in spite of monetary tightening. Even in the face of a major recessionary contraction, which I predict will be triggered starting in April, prices will still remain higher.

All the while the mainstream media and government economists will say they have "no idea" why inflation is so persistent, and that "nobody could have seen this coming." Some of us saw it coming, and it's because we accept the reality that the dollar's days are numbered.

To truth and knowledge,

4 Ways to Store Food Without a Refrigerator*

Have you ever wondered how people preserved their food in the days before refrigerators existed? Ensuring food was properly stored and preserved was a major priority for families in the era before refrigerators (fun fact: the first refrigerators for home use were invented in 1913).

Today, sticking food in the refrigerator or the freezer so it lasts is a major luxury that most of us take for granted. It’s for that reason that haven't taken food storage without a refrigerator seriously…at least until now (after all, you’re reading this article).

The truth is that even today there are many reasons to learn how to store food without a refrigerator. Besides it being a crucial life skill that you would be wise to learn, these reasons include...

5 things you need to prepare for a disaster

 

In today’s world we need to be vigilant and prepared for sudden changes in our environment which may be brought on by Mother Nature or Political Activities. We all want to protect our family from harm, and preparedness for disaster emergencies should be one of our top priorities. I’m not advocating that you pack up your family and move to some isolated location to hide from the world, but I am offering simple preparations for ice storms, floods, hurricanes, or terrorist activities will make your existence much more palatable during the disaster.

1.   Be prepared – Yes, the first thing on the list is to use the list to be prepared. It is one thing to take a glance at the list, but unless you actually put this list into a workable plan for your family, then reading this is just wasted time on your part. Just making the preparations will give you a sense of calm when faced with the disaster.

 

This sense of calm will work in your favor because you will be less likely to be one of the hordes of people acting in a reactionary, fear driven, panic when the reality of the disaster is recognized (usually when the news anchors start saying things like “This is going to be bad.”… or… “We can’t stress enough the dangerous nature of this storm.”… or… “Here is video of people fighting over the last of the bread at this grocery store.”… or… “The police have lost control of this area of town.” While the crowds are rushing to the grocery store and emptying the aisles of bread and milk, you will be safely at home making last minute preparations to keep yourself and your family safe.

Because I realize that there is a definite cost factor in making these preparations, I will try to prioritize the items on the list as to which are absolutely necessary and which ones can be added as funds are available. Any item with an * next to it is a priority item and needs to be included from the beginning. To my Prepper friends, I do realize that this list will not satisfy your need to prepare for any and all situations and it is only a short term duration solution, so don’t pounce on me with a long list of items that you think I have left off. It is intentionally a short, condensed list which is meant to help an average family through a short term disaster situation, not a nuclear holocaust. I also have not addressed any need for firearms or ammunition. That is for another article.

A big part of the preparation is being organized. There will be enough things to be concerned with when the situation presents itself, trying to remember where all of your supplies might be stored should not be one of them. Buy one of the following. We will be storing everything possible in them, so your preparedness items will be readily available to you when you need them.

a.    Storage Locker* – Find a well built, heavy plastic storage locker that is large enough to hold a lot of gear, but still small enough to fit in the trunk of your car or the bed of your truck. This is not one of those plastic storage bins that people use to store winter clothes in during the summer, this thing needs to be a bit more durable than that. Find one with handles to make it easier to move into and out of your vehicle. Most stores like Academy will have them starting at about $20.

 

b. Backpack* – This is not a child’s school backpack. Go to the camping section and find one that is well made, durable, and large enough to hold lots of stuff. Don’t worry about it being too big, we are not going to have to backpack across the Grand Canyon with it, and my experience is that you ALWAYS need more space to store stuff. The starting price for a good one will be around $39, but if you can only afford a back-to-school type backpack, go ahead and get it, we can always upgrade later.

 

2. Shelter from the weather – Unexpected disasters will likely subject you to the elements. This could be due to a fast developing situation where you are caught away from home when the disaster strikes, or it could result from a storm that has caused widespread power outages, broken windows in your home, or taken off a portion of your roof. Exposure to the weather is not just annoying, it can be dangerous. The combination of being wet and cold is deadly.

 

a. Polyethylene tarp – These come in a variety of sizes and are quite inexpensive. (a 6×8 tarp is only about $5 if you check some camping supply stores). These are great for keeping out the weather if windows are broken during a storm. They can also be used for a makeshift tent if you happen to be caught out of your home when the disaster strikes. They will be great for keeping you dry and holding off the wind. Get 3-4 of them. Put them in your storage locker.

 

b. Plastic rain poncho* – One for every member of your family, plus a few extra (they are cheap (as little as $1) and will get torn when being worn for any length of time). Get the kind that fold up into a small pouch. Put into your backpack.

c. Quart – ½ Gallon sized plastic zip-lock bags* – These will be used to store some of the items on this list as well as storage of food and medicines. These are important, but cheap. Put in the storage locker.

 

d. Wool, Cotton, Fleece pullover or Hoodie – One for every member of the family. My preference would be wool, but anything is better than nothing. They are about $12 each for Haynes brand at most stores. If the power goes out, or if you are caught away from home, the cooler temps at night are deceptively dangerous. One main goal is to stay dry and warm. Roll up and place into a zip-lock bag and then put in your backpack.

 

e. Extra wool or cotton socks* – Two or three pair for every member of the family. Style is not important here, regular white tube socks are just fine (about $8 for a pack of 3). Cheap, but a fresh change of socks can do wonders, and will help keep your feet more healthy and comfortable during the disaster situation and can act as emergency mittens if needed. I can’t say enough about taking care of your feet. I know it sounds trivial, but it is not. Put unopened packs into zip-lock bags and then into your backpack (keeping them dry is key).

f. Change of clothes* – A complete change of clothes for each member of the family. This is not time for a fashion statement, we are after durability and function here. Long pants (blue jeans) and a long sleeve shirt. Don’t forget a change of underwear. Also include a pair of shoes that you would be comfortable wearing for long periods of time. An old pair of tennis shoes might be the answer. Really no costs here, we are going to use clothes we already have in the closet, but probably don’t wear because it has a stain on it, or it is not a color we wear often. Put in the storage locker.

 

g. Sleeping Bag – One for each member of the family. In this case, I am recommending a specific product, SOL Emergency Bivvy Bag* (do a Google search for stores selling it). Sells for about $17 each but packs up very small and will save your life. Much smaller than a standard sleeping bag (starting price, around $20). If you have the room for a sleeping bag for each person, by all means get them. Store the SOL Emergency Bivvy Bag in your backpack, and the Sleeping bags in a single location near where you will store the backpack and storage locker.

 

3. Safety and Security – There are several items that you will need to make sure that you and your family remain healthy and safe.




 

a. Medical Kit – You should get two kits.

I. The first is a small, compact first aid kit* that can easily be stored in a zip-lock bag and placed in your backpack and are designed to take care of minor medial issues like blisters, splinters, sprains, etc. They sell for less than $20.

ii. The next is a more complete kit, sometimes called a trauma kit. It contains more supplies and tools and is usually marketed as a Sportsman’s First Aid Kit, or an Outdoors Adventure Medical Kit (starting price is about $49). Store this in your storage locker.

 

b. CPR Training* – At least one person in your family needs to be CPR certified. The Red Cross and American Heart Association offer classes on a regular basis, but usually charge for the certification class ($70-$110). Most fire departments also offer classes but these classes do not provide a certification needed to fulfill any job requirements (usually free).

 

c. Know your evacuation routes* – Think about where you could go if you had to quickly leave your home due to the disaster. Keep in mind the destinations that would be appropriate for the situation (going to stay with your Uncle on the coast may work well if your home is threatened by a fire, but is not a good idea if you are fleeing a hurricane). Get an old fashioned paper map ($5-$10) and learn how to read it, don’t rely on your navigation app to get you anywhere, the system could be down due to the disaster. Have more than one route mapped out for each destination, roads may be impassable and you may need to find a secondary route. Keep the map in your vehicle.

 

d. Make a list of contacts* – Everyone in the family should have a list of important contacts they carry with them. Make sure you include numbers for your office, your partner’s office, your children’s schools, day care, doctors, and close family members. Include the numbers of your health and home owner’s insurance companies, as well as your policy numbers. On this list include information of any medical condition and medications needed for all family members (for young children, also include the date of birth). Also designate a family member or friend that will serve as the point-of-contact if your family is separated. Choosing someone out of town is a good idea because they may be less likely to be experiencing the same issues in their area as you are experiencing in yours. Put this list inside of a zip-lock bag and place in your backpack (and an emergency contact list in your child’s school backpack).

 

e. Money – In disaster situations, ATM’s, credit cards and debit cards may not work or may not be accepted by merchants. Have a stash of emergency funds available in cash. It doesn’t need to be lots of money, but make sure that you have both small bills and some change (probably quarters) already packed in your backpack. The amount that you choose is up to you, but I suggest that it is enough to get a tank of gas, a few meals for the family while on the road, or buy some last minute item needed for the situation at hand.

POSTSCRIPT 1



The US won the Cold War…But, now we mirror the Soviet Union.

  Look at the budget that Congress just passed.  It’s a $1.7 trillion budget, and over half went to the military industrial complex.

The economy is in big trouble, and that means war is a lock, according to Gerald Celente.  “The global economy is crashing.  It was artificially built up when they started the Covid war.  There were countless trillions of dollars that they pumped into it. . . . This thing is going to crash big.  When all else fails, they take you to war.  What followed the Great Depression?  WWII.  What followed the dot com bust?  The war on terror, and the same thing is going to happen now.”

Celente says the economy is already falling apart, and the tip-off is the mass firing of temporary workers.  Add in inflation, and real pain is happening in the economy right now.  Celente says, “They bought less in terms of dollars, but it’s way worse because they don’t factor in inflation.  In other words, people paid a lot more to buy a lot less.”

Celente also predicts a huge commercial real estate meltdown.  The meltdown in residential real estate will be a bit less.
