If you think everything's OK with Dem-Socialists, you're nuts

Regardless of what social freebies the leftists will hand out next (out of your tax dollars), one thing is clear:

If you think everything's OK with Dem-Socialists, you're nuts…their debate in Detroit was filled with giveaways that are untenable.

How to wake society up to the big issues we collectively face vs. non-stop ‘get-even’, wasteful investigations. They are sabotaging America, especially the crop of so-called ‘new’ Dems who are in reality, Communists who have the same agenda as Karl Marx for this nation.

Are some humans wired to ignore the kinds of challenges facing society today?

If these far Left socialists manage further to exert control over our land in the coming years and decades there will be hell to pay for society failing to properly assess the risks they pose to a free society, for individual rights, property rights, etc. vs. the collective they seek.

When it comes to decision-making, I have great faith in individuals but almost no faith in groups [which is why our Founders created a Republic vs. a democracy].

 I’ll bet the founders of Google had the best of 'non-evil' intentions when they began.  But now the behemoth is busy spying for the government, helping to weaken and overthrow various foreign governments that are unfriendly to western business interests, and helping to rig domestic elections. Two guys doing pretty good.  Big giant powerful company becomes a censor and promoter of the socialist movement.

I listened to all of Mueller's testimony earlier in the week.

I especially focused on the Democrats questions and statements camouflaged as questions.

Here’s what we are witnessing right now:

The Democrats are laying the groundwork to try and spoil Trump's 2020 re-election by claiming it as a result of continued Russian interference with our election system.

They already know that he is going to be re-elected.

And, they're desperately trying to find a way to discredit the election results and hopefully bring him down.

They will continue to have large groups within the government and outside the government assisting in the civil overthrow.

If you listen to CNN, you will be able to hear their playbook.

CNN is already suggesting that the 2020 elections could be rigged by the Russians so that anyone the Russians want, could end up in the White House.



Further, they're claiming that if Trump does get re-elected, it will be proof of his collusion and cooperation with Russia.

They’re laying the groundwork now and the media is going to help with it every step of the way.”

It will be a crazy time over the next several months and the Dems will do anything they can to keep Trump out of office. Their hatred for Trump is never-ending. Nadler hated Trump even before he became President due to a NY real estate deal that Nadler opposed but Trump won…he’s had a personal vendetta against POTUS ever since.  Nadler by the way, has been office for decades and has an ego the size of New York state-he’s never even sponsored a bill of his own; just a political parasite feeding at the public trough!

Let’s talk about getting too woke… (Don’t agree 100% but it’s an interesting take about life today]

The FTC alleges Equifax violated the agency’s prohibition against unfair and deceptive practices. The FTC said Equifax failed to properly safeguard peoples’ personal information despite claiming in its privacy policy that it implemented “reasonable physical, technical and procedural safeguards” to protect their data.
“Companies that profit from personal information have an extra responsibility to protect and secure that data,” said FTC Chairman Joe Simons in a statement. “Equifax failed to take basic steps that may have prevented the breach.”

 


Facebook will have to pay a record-breaking fine for violating users’ privacy. But the FTC wanted more. The FTC also plans to allege that Facebook had provided insufficient information to users — roughly 30 million — about their ability to turn off a tool that would identify and offer tag suggestions for photos, the sources added. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity. The facial recognition issue appears to have first been publicized earlier this year by Consumer Reports. The FTC declined comment. Facebook also declined to comment.

 


The extensions affected macOS, Windows, Chrome OS, and Ubuntu operating systems and Chromium-based browsers like Opera and Yandex. The collected data was sold to any interested buyer. The data included typical information like usernames and passwords and less typical information like tax returns, genetic information, and genealogy. Some of the extensions like FairShare Unlock and SpeakIt! have been installed by over one million users. It is also believed that the data leak has affected over 45 major companies such as Apple, Amazon, Walmart, Dell, and Uber.

 


Women have been incorrectly informed by companies that they have faulty BRCA genes, which convey a high risk of breast and ovarian cancers. One patient was scheduled for preventive breast-removal surgery after a consumer genetic test suggested she had a BRCA mutation. The surgery was called off at the last moment when an NHS laboratory revealed the result to be a false positive.

 


“The proposed rule will increase access to a reliable legal agricultural workforce, easing unnecessary burdens on farmers, increase enforcement against fraud and abuse, all while maintaining protections for America’s workers,” U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said in a statement.
“When this rule goes into effect, our farmers will be released from unnecessary and burdensome regulations allowing them to do what they do best,” Perdue said.

I'm gonna be honest: An apartment is not a great place to be when disaster strikes. Not that you can't be a prepper while living in an apartment. You certainly can. In fact, I lived in an apartment for several years after getting into the prepper lifestyle.

 But the fact is, apartments are filled with lots of people and usually located in areas with a high population density. If you're forced to bug in, an apartment can be difficult to defend. It's hard to collect rainwater and other supplies. It's hard to deal with waste if the sewers are backed up. And there's not a lot of space for food and water storage.

 Now that all you apartment preppers are feeling depressed, I have some good news. You can still get through an SHTF event as an apartment dweller, but there are some things you need to know...

Brutal Truth of What Happens When Society Collapses

The Brutal Truth About What Really Happens When a Society Collapses He Was Just an Ordinary Family Man, Living His Life… and Then the Unimaginable Happened

It doesn’t matter how prepared you are. In a true sh*t-hits-the-fan (SHTF) scenario — where there’s been, say, a catastrophic attack on the power grid or where a massively destructive and disruptive civil war has broken out — being thrust into a life of rugged self-sufficiency would not be fun or romantic. Fending for yourself and your loved ones would be a living hell. If you doubt this, I would encourage you to pick up Selco Begovic’s 2019 book, The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival: The Brutal Truth About Violence, Death and Mayhem You Must Know to Survive.

 I’ve just finished it. It’s a quick read. As you can probably tell from the title, it’s not exactly a “nice” book. But in it, you’ll learn what life is really like when society completely falls apart. You see, Selco was just an ordinary guy living with his family in “a regular city in a nice country in Europe” when, in the early 1990s, civil war erupted around him. This, we know today, as the war in the Balkans that eventually led to the breakup of Yugoslavia. As Selco tells it, his city quickly came under siege. There was no escape. And so began a horrific ordeal in which he and others were forced to survive in the harshest conditions imaginable — for over a year. His story is the stuff of nightmares. And it’s all true.

Tremors Before the Collapse In the months leading up to SHTF, Selco writes how the media fanned the flames of discord in his country. Differences amongst antagonistic groups were stressed. Tensions were escalated. Conflict seemed all but unavoidable. “The media manipulated people,” he recalls. “[The media] increased the fear and hate.” In his own city, things began to deteriorate. There was scattered violence. All kinds of rumors. Then tanks and military units appeared.

Selco describes being “mesmerized” by what he was seeing unfold. “It was like being in a movie,” he writes. He even described this part as “exciting.” That quickly changed. “Pretty soon we all were like, ‘F**k, people are getting killed for real here’” — but by then they’d lost their chance to escape. Calling it his “big mistake,” Selco says that “one day it was simply too late to leave.” “It is important to believe that [this kind of an event] can actually happen,” Selco cautions. “Because after I saw all the signs, I just said to myself, ‘Oh, it cannot happen here. Somebody somehow is gonna solve everything.’” Supplies and Safety in Numbers As panic set in, goods flew off the shelf. Then the looting began. Yet most people were still unaware of what was taking place. Selco observes: I have seen people running from a mall with items that, in a few days, would become the most ridiculous items to possess... in the middle of a collapse.

 Things like a TV or a laundry machine… The majority of people could not imagine what was coming, so they couldn’t fathom that a bag full of AA batteries was gonna be worth more than 50 laundry machines. With his city under siege and rampant violence, destruction and looting underway, several of Selco’s friends and a handful of relatives moved in with him and his family for safety in numbers. From this point on, it was everyone for themselves. What Daily Life Is Like When SHTF Their sole objective became survival. “Just start to imagine every ‘supply’ you take for granted (fuel, electricity, water, stores, emergency services, etc.) being taken away and not knowing when it will ever come back,” writes Selco. Their days and nights became a desperate, ongoing struggle to obtain the necessities of life. They scavenged from wherever they could. “People do not understand how much hard work is needed [to do all this],” says Selco.

 He describes how everything in your life changes. Nothing is normal anymore. From when and where you sleep to your schedule, your bathroom habits, having to adjust to constant fatigue, thirst and concern about where your next meal will come from — everything. On the topic of food, Selco writes that “we ate when we had the chance… [including] things that most people wouldn’t think of as food. All that being said, Selco notes that: Even in a survival situation, you need to still care about a few little things to keep your dignity, to keep your spirits up, to not lose yourself. If you stop caring about everything, it is like a disease that eats you.” But as bad as all this is, there’s still one more key part to the story. The part that makes it truly terrifying — the ever-present threat of violence and death. Why You Need to Own a Weapon Selco writes about how when the SHTF, it didn’t take long for gangs to form. Some joined a gang for safety and to obtain resources.

But others came together for far darker, more sinister reasons. This lawless, chaotic environment, simply put, gave people the opportunity to be evil. Targeted killings, torture, terror, rape — this all took place. Selco doesn’t linger on this stuff any more than he has to. He says he’s not trying to be shocking by talking about it. Rather, he wants to educate people about the realities of urban warfare and what a societywide collapse is actually like. “It is a needed but depressing realization that people, even regular folks, can become so cruel, so fast,” laments Selco. The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival is an instructive and practical book. You will learn a lot of specific advice that can only come from someone who’s experienced such an event firsthand. But the book is also a disturbing account of human nature when the paper-thin veneer of civilization is stripped away.

   The socialists infecting our Congress remind me of the 1930s

This fall of the mainstream and rise of fringe elements is straight out of 1930s Germany.  That period saw the stunning rise of extreme parties both on the right and the left.  In 1928 elections, the Nazi Party came in 9th with only 2.6% of the vote.  The Communists did four times better, with 10.6%.  Just two years later, after the 1929 stock market collapse, the Nazis won 18.3% and became Germany’s second most popular party.

The Communists were third, with 13.1%.  In 1932, the Nazis won nearly 40% of the vote. 

The move to the extreme Left by Democrats reminds me of how little people seem to learn from history-no one in the Democratic Party seems willing or able to halt the rise of so-called Progressives in their party [they’re now dominated by extreme ideas which will create an even bigger Nanny State while eroding more of our rights, especially gun ownership.

This domestic terror group might be termed the ‘Brown Shirts’ of the Democrat-Socialist Party…those were the criminal goons the Nazis used to impose their will on its enemies.
 

Antifa goons threw chemical weapons at Ng, a conservative journalist, by mixing quick-drying cement with milkshakes which causes chemical burns if it makes contact with the skin. Seattle cops just stood by, doing nothing.

 

 


Here are my ideas for new bill [s] to improve government

 

>Since term limits never seems to gain any traction perhaps we should entertain the idea of zero pay for elected officials after their third term in office…give them their office, expenses, health insurance while in office and a living allowance only=much like our Founding Fathers and see how many decide to remain in office.

 
>Perhaps we need to resurrect a new version of ‘war’ bonds, perhaps calling them “government bailout bonds” to help pay off our national debt and/or to help pay for our massive deficits and proposed new spending projects since fewer foreign nations are buying our debt!

>An idea I've suggested before:  Eliminate ALL city/state & Federal taxes on the 1st $25K of income for all people. 41% of citizens pay no Federal tax, many city/state taxes are killers for many. Tax laws that encourage more US manufacturing/jobs & elimination of red tape would help too.
 
 
 
 

More Updates:

Food, water, and shelter are the three essential requirements for survival after an apocalyptic disaster. Of the three, though, it is food that will be the most difficult to acquire.

 Making sure you have enough food to survive after the supermarkets are permanently closed requires a multi-faceted approach. While stockpiling canned food and other foods with a long shelf-life is a great idea, food stockpiles can only last for so long. In order to be prepared for long-term survival, you need to explore other options as well.

 One of the best ways to ensure you have food for the long-term is to build a survival seed bank. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what survival seed banks are, the benefits that they offer, and how you can build one for yourself...


 
 

Collecting rainwater for drinking purposes may seem simple enough, but there are many ways it can go wrong – some of which can actually be quite dangerous. If you would like to start collecting rainwater in a way that is both safe and effective, make sure that you avoid these common rainwater collection mistakes.

 Mistake #1: Using the Wrong Container - While there are plenty of containers that are capable of holding water, not all of them are suitable for collecting and storing drinking water. Some containers may leach dangerous chemicals into your water, while others are not opaque enough to block out the sunlight - which could encourage algae growth.

 Dark colored plastic barrels are ideal for collecting rainwater, but many other containers will work so long as they are large enough, opaque enough, and not coated with any chemicals that could leach into your water...

The China Threat: Blocking the USA out of World Trade

Blocking the USA out of World Trade

The global economy is being reoriented—away from the United States.  [Our ongoing series that exposes the true intentions of China-to dominate the world while dumping the United States]


Acolossal Eurasian supercontinent is forming. From Tokyo to Lisbon, groups of Asian and European nations are hammering out history-altering trade deals and building billions of dollars’ worth of infrastructure to better bind themselves together.

With the ideological lines that divided East and West during the Cold War fading away, the links between Asia and Europe are solidifying at hypersonic speed. Latin America, too, is being drawn deeper into the Eurasian orbit.

All of these trends, deals and projects have one common denominator: The United States is excluded.

And this is all happening in fulfillment of specific end-time biblical prophecies.

Rebuilding the Ancient Silk Road


China has taken the lead in working to integrate Eurasia. It is accomplishing this largely with the Belt and Road Initiative (bri), the brainchild and foremost national priority of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The project was enshrined into the Chinese Constitution in 2017 as part of Xi’s “Chinese Dream.” It aims to rebuild the ancient “Silk Road” network of routes that facilitated the flow of goods and ideas across Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Xi has been working to convince nations in those regions to cooperate with China to build roads, rail networks, bridges, ports, pipelines and Internet systems to rebuild and greatly expand those ancient routes. If the Belt and Road Initiative comes together as planned, its infrastructure will connect more than 60 percent of the global population and about 36 percent of total global gross domestic product—to China. And it is all for the purpose of reshaping the international system to place China at the center.

Many countries, especially in poorer parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, immediately signed on. They calculated that accepting Chinese loans and granting China the right to build road, rail and port infrastructure might be risky, but the benefits to their economies would be worth it.

But in Europe, most nations were skeptical. They worried about China’s human rights abuses and deceitful trade practices, including its tendency to steal the intellectual property of foreign investors. Europeans also feared China’s debt trap diplomacy, by which it uses loans to gain leverage over borrowing countries and force them to make concessions they would never make otherwise. They worried about how the expansion of Chinese interests globally sometimes precedes the expansion of Chinese military assets and deployments.

On top of all that, Europe’s historical postwar alignment has been toward the United States. And American leaders view the bri as a dangerous drive for Chinese global hegemony, and often encourage nations in Europe and elsewhere to shun it. These factors combined to darken EU countries’ view of the initiative, and to initially dissuade them from integrating more deeply with China.

But over the years, especially as Europe’s anti-American sentiments grew stronger, some of the less powerful, mostly southern European nations rejected U.S. warnings and joined the Chinese project. And in March a major European power made the extremely significant decision to follow suit.
When in Rome

Italy normally reserves its most lavish welcomes only for close allies. But on March 21, it hosted Xi for a state visit in Rome, including an elaborate, red-carpet reception, state dinner and private concert by an opera megastar. But the highlight of the visit for Xi was Italy’s signing up to the Belt and Road Initiative.

“Xi Jinping’s dream,” Business Insider wrote after the signing, “just claimed one of its biggest victories yet.”

The victory was enormous, not just because Chinese ships will be able to easily unload cargo at Italy’s choicest ports, but also because Italy is a member of the G-7. This group of democratically governed, advanced economies also includes Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the U.S. and the United Kingdom. The G-7 are powerful nations that help shape global policy. Now that one is on the list of Belt and Road participants, other European nations are seriously considering joining.

Quartz noted that Italy’s move was partly motivated by its desire to break with traditional partners, including the U.S., which has been its ally since the founding of nato 70 years ago. “[An] endorsement for bri … can signal the likelihood of a country breaking ranks with traditional allies to side with China over politically charged themes,” it wrote (March 19).

Italy’s “signal” of anti-Americanism is sobering. And European, Asian and African countries are not the only ones demonstrating that they are eager to side with China. Alarmingly, it is also happening with more and more countries in the U.S.’s periphery.
Crashing America’s Neighborhood

The Belt and Road infrastructure development initially concentrated on Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe, the same regions that were linked by the ancient Silk Road. But in 2017, Xi said he views Latin America as a “natural extension” of the project and invited nations there to join. Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Panama, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago have already signed on. More Latin American and Caribbean nations are preparing to follow.

Chinese money has already built a port in Trinidad and Tobago, railways in Argentina, and roads in Costa Rica and Jamaica. As China persuades more Latin American and Caribbean nations to join the project, this region, which is vital to U.S. security, will become increasingly aligned with Beijing and its partners.

And the Belt and Road Initiative is just one of many ways that China and its anti-American partners are deepening their influence in Latin America.

In the case of China’s closest comrade, Russia, the influence is becoming overtly militaristic. In recent months, Russia has modernized Nicaragua’s military, loaned Cuba $43 million for military gear, and said it may build a base there. In Venezuela, Russia has sent soldiers and military gear to prop up the regime of failed dictator Nicol├ís Maduro, and Russia’s Nezavisimaya Gazeta has reported that Moscow may build a permanent military base there.

Given the proximity of these Latin American nations to the U.S. and to the Caribbean shipping lanes that the U.S. economy depends on, the deepening influence of Russia and China there should be red flags to U.S. policymakers.
The World Is Banking on China

On Jan. 16, 2016, while inaugurating China’s new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Xi told the assembled dignitaries they were witnessing “a historical moment.”

The bank was established mainly to support Belt and Road projects and to advance China’s broader goal of asserting leadership on the world stage. The bank offers nations an alternative to the post-World War ii U.S.-dominated institutions, such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. It is another economic weapon for China to openly challenge American leadership.

Despite U.S. pressure, several of America’s Asian allies and partners joined China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, including the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore. Several of America’s closest allies outside of Asia—Britain, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and France—also joined.

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers wrote in the lead-up to the Bank’s inauguration: “[T]his … may be remembered as the moment the United States lost its role as the underwriter of the global economic system.” Summers also stated that America’s failure to persuade allies to stay out of the Chinese initiative is a “wake-up call.”

Luxembourg’s finance minister said in 2016 that the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is “further proof of the rebalancing of the world economy.”

Trade Blocs Blocking Out the U.S.


“[G]overnments have proven eager to move forward with trade negotiations as a way to counter some of the uncertainty in the global trading system today,” John Murphy, senior vice president for international policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told usa Todaylast November.

As a result of this push, major new trade blocs are emerging around the globe.

The European Union has been especially aggressive. In recent years, it has signed new agreements with Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ukraine and South Korea. In December, Europe announced two deals with Japan: the EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement and EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement. The latter integrates 635 million people and one third of the world’s gdp, making it the largest trade bloc on the planet. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the deal brings EU-Japan trade and political ties “to a whole new level.”

On April 9, the EU hailed a “breakthrough” in its push for a trade agreement with China. The two sides agreed to dramatically boost their trade volumes, broaden market access, work together on World Trade Organization reform, and for China not to force EU companies operating there into divulging sensitive knowledge. “It is a breakthrough,” said European Council President Donald Tusk. “For the first time, China has agreed to engage with Europe on this key priority for wto reform.”

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said of the deals: “Not only will this be conducive to China’s reform and opening up, but also Europe’s unity and prosperity.”

China also recently signed a free-trade agreement with the Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union. This group includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in April that the bloc’s goal—facilitating the free movement of goods, labor and capital in the region—perfectly aligns with the aims of the Belt and Road Initiative. Putin said the Eurasian Economic Union member countries “unanimously supported the idea of linking the construction of the Eurasian Economic Community” and the Belt and Road.

Meanwhile, in December, the Japan-led Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership came into effect. This deal includes Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Chile, Peru and Malaysia. The 500 million people living in these nations, constituting 13.4 percent of the global economy, can now trade nearly tariff-free.

And all the while, the EU has been frantically working toward a landmark free-trade deal with the Latin American trade bloc mercosur, which includes Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. “This trade agreement will impact the whole world!” Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote of the EU-mercosur deal in our March issue.

These agreements are fundamentally altering the world economy. And they all have one thing in common: They exclude the U.S.

In the case of some of the agreements, America chose not to participate. Nevertheless, the trend is undeniable: More and more nations are forging massive economic alliances—and America is out.

Many of these history-altering trade deals have been under negotiation for years. And now they are suddenly becoming reality. “Analysts attribute that to the Trump administration’s policies,” (usa Today, op cit). In reality, the anti-American sentiments that helped shape these trade deals predate the Trump administration, but his leadership has intensified such feelings and made more world leaders feel urgent about acting on them.

The Belt and Road Initiative, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the multiplying number of U.S.-excluding trade blocs are reorienting the world economy—to the detriment of the United States. 

China’s rising power and the increasing number of trade blocs that exclude the U.S. are shifting global power away from “Israel” and toward these non-Israelite nations. Prophecy shows that as this shift continues, cooperation between China, Europe and several other Gentile nations will be consolidated and take a sharply anti-American turn.

The situation will morph into a European subjugation of Latin America, “The Latin American countries will become vassal states to Europe!”

With this level of control in Latin America, the European and Asian powers will be geographically situated to lay siege to the United States. “With a German-led Europe … possessing great maritime power, North America will be surrounded on the east by Europe and the south by Latin America” (ibid).

At first I had no idea why President Trump talked so much about sovereignty. I’ve changed my mind. To be more precise, Xi Jinping changed it. Mr. Trump is the only thing that stands between us and a world dominated by China. –Sen. M Rubio/WSJ
