First it was toilet paper.

Next came protective face masks.

Now, the U.S. Mint says, we’re facing a nationwide shortage of physical coins. As in pocket change.

Imagine a scenario where cash has become worthless. It could be hyperinflation, where it takes a wheelbarrow of cash to buy a loaf of bread. Or it could a devastating act of terrorism such as a bio-weapon or an EMP that sets the country back 100 years. Whatever the cause, there could come a day when our money becomes useless.

 

And it won't necessarily be a nationwide disaster that causes this to happen. In a local disaster such as a powerful hurricane or earthquake, the power will be out which means the banks will be closed. And if they don't reopen, there won't be enough cash to go around.

 

In any of the above scenarios, people will be forced to barter with one another until power is restored or a suitable currency emerges. In case that ever happens, it's a good idea to have a wide assortment of barter items. That way if someone has something you need, you're more likely to already have something they need...

A micro survival kit is exactly what it sounds like: A tiny survival kit. It is typically housed in a small tin can and designed to be carried around in your pocket. Alternatively, you can keep it in your vehicle, in a bug out bag, in the office, or anywhere else that is convenient for you.

However, you can't just grab a few of your smallest survival items and throw them into an Altoids tin. To fit everything you need in there, you have to be very strategic. In this video, Wranglerstar explains how to build a micro survival kit using items you can buy at Walmart. Here's what you'll need.

 

The first thing you need to get is an Altoids tin can, which should be easy to find nearly anywhere. This tin can will be used to house the rest of your survival items...

New York City is up 33% this year. St. Louis is up 66%. In Oregon it’s up 100%.

I’m not talking about real estate prices, local budget gaps, or even property tax rates.

These are the startling increases in the number of people across the country, and the world, who are in need of food.

Food banks across the Land of the Free are experiencing an enormous surge in demand from people looking to feed their families, many of whom are experiencing such economic hardship for the first time.

The director of a local food bank in western Massachusetts, for example, recently said, “I thought I had seen the worst during the Great Recession [of 2008-2009]. But what we have experienced since March due to COVID-19 has really overwhelmed us.”

saw a video last week showing thousands of cars “stretching as far as the eye can see” in line to receive free food from a local food bank in my hometown of Dallas, Texas.

Similarly, Miami had a “massive food bank line stretched for two miles.”

 

But not everyone is willing to enforce such ridiculous measures. Check out what this sheriff in Fulton County, New York has to say.

It’s Time For Civil Disobedience: America Needs To Say “Hell No!”

Posted by Ryan James | Nov 26, 2020 | Politics

 

Too many Americans are sitting back and allowing their individual rights to be trampled on by power-hungry government officials. Across the country, governors have used COVID-related fear to enhance their power while relegating state legislatures to mere observers.

This needs to end and it needs to end NOW!

Originally, we were all told to quarantine for 15 days to “slow the spread.” That was in March. Well, here we are at Thanksgiving and the lockdowns have begun anew in many Democrat-run states.

It is time for Americans to say “no more” and defy these unconstitutional orders. The Constitution isn’t suspended when there is a public health emergency.

Our country was founded on the God-given right to personal property. The government was instituted for the purpose of protecting that property from harm by others, not to usurp those rights. These governors’ actions are exactly why the Founders diffused power out of the hands of one entity and spread it around so that one man couldn’t behave like a tyrant.

James Madison once wrote that “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.”

John Locke—who was a major influence on the Founding Founders—wrote, “The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, liberty, or possession.”

It is baffling to me why so many Americans have stood by as state governments have forced their businesses to close and caused massive job-loss the likes of which we have never seen in American history.

Citizens are doing exactly as they are being told. It is time for civil disobedience. Americans need to stand up to their state governments, refuse to close their businesses, and to have as many people as they would like over to their private residences for Thanksgiving. The government has no right to dictate what people do on their private property.

An owner of a restaurant in Newaygo, Michigan is doing just this. He is defying Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s order to close dine-in service for three weeks.

Mlive reported, “The owner of a Newaygo bar and restaurant that has defied a state health order to stop in-person dining says his decision is meant to protect the livelihoods of his employees and his family’s legacy.

‘Because of the history here and the fact that I cannot put 30 employees out of work, it’s what’s right,’ Jim Corey, owner of Jimmy’s Roadhouse, told MLive Monday of his decision to continue dine-in service…

On Friday, Corey’s restaurant hosted a ‘Stand Up Michigan’ rally that attracted hundreds opposed to the latest round of coronavirus restrictions.

The group ‘Stand Up Michigan’ had backed an ‘Unlock Michigan’ petition drive that sought to limit Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive powers.”

Jim Corey is following in the footsteps of great movements of civil disobedience that affected change throughout American history. The Civil Rights and Suffrage movements ended segregation and earned women the right to vote.

It is time for a modern civil rights movement. It is time for We the People to take our Country back. If we don’t, the government will continue to grow their power. Governments never give up power willingly when they possess it.

If we don’t stand up for our rights, we will be one step closer to tyranny…and that would be a shame indeed.

Postscript

 


It is widely claimed today that our nation is irredeemably flawed—that America has been fundamentally unjust from the beginning due to “systemic racism.”

The purpose of promoting this falsehood is to sever Americans’ patriotic attachment to our country and its founding principles in order to replace our limited government Constitution with a radically different form of government.

The only way to confront this false and dangerous narrative—and preserve free government—is to counter it with the true and honest story of America’s quest to achieve justice.

SIDEBARS

Although some survival supplies can be pretty expensive, most of the things people will need after the SHTF are dirt cheap. For example, right now toilet paper costs less than a dollar per roll. But when the store shelves are bare, most people will trade a lot for a single roll of toilet paper. And that's just the beginning.

 When you think about disaster preparedness, keep in mind that a lot of cheap stuff we take for granted will be extremely valuable after SHTF. This is the stuff you want to stock up on now. Not only will you need it for yourself and your family, but you may also need it for bartering.

 Here are just 50 examples of cheap items you'll want to stock up on while they're still available. I'm sure there are plenty more, so if you think of any, be sure to leave a comment below. Now on to the list...

Woman shares ridiculous government overreach

Woman shares ridiculous government overreach

[This letter was written by Viktorija, our Sovereign Woman.]

My experience with ridiculous government overreach began literally on the day I was born.

It was more than three decades ago, in the tiny Soviet Socialist Republic of Lithuania, back when the Soviet Union still existed.

As my mother tells the story, she and my father hurried to the closest hospital when her contractions started. But the hospital administration staff informed them that they were not allowed to give birth there.

Apparently we weren’t registered with that municipality. So the bureaucrats turned my parents away and ordered them to drive to the correct hospital that matched their records.

Unfortunately, my parents were nearly out of gas.

Gasoline was in very short supply at the time and considered a major luxury; the Soviet Union was near collapse, and people routinely had to wait in line for more than a day just to fill up a few liters of gas.

So, my parents were without any means to drive to the ‘correct’ hospital. And that’s when they resorted to what most people ended up doing back in Soviet times: bribery.

They went back to the hospital that turned them away, and paid off the nurses and administrators to let them give birth there.

And poof, shortly thereafter, I came into the world.

My mother is full of these stories about Soviet times; in her youth, she worked at a clothing store… and almost all of the inventory was Soviet-made garbage.

On rare occasion, though, a new dress would come in that was made in Western Europe. My mom would immediately hide it, and sell it to special customers who were willing to pay much more. That was the only way she could afford to buy enough food that month.

Anything foreign, in fact, was considered a major luxury.

Vehicles were fairly common in the Soviet Union, but they were all pitiful Soviet brands like Zaporozhet, Moskvitch, or Volga. Even just seeing a Mercedes was a dream come true.

Travel was the same. If you were lucky enough to have any money, you were allowed to travel. But only inside the Soviet Union… so you could look forward to a fancy vacation to Azerbaijan.

Only big bosses with special connections were allowed to travel outside of the Soviet Union. But for most of us in the proletariat, visiting Paris or London was an unimaginable luxury.

It’s funny how the things that we consider luxuries tend to change over time.

As children we used to get really excited about a new toy, which, in adulthood, probably seems rather trivial to us now.

And I remember the first time I saw someone with a cell phone. It was the size of a suitcase, but I thought he was the wealthiest man in the world.

Now everyone has a smartphone; it’s not even close to being a luxury anymore.

I’ve been to some of the poorest countries in the world—places like Myanmar and Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland, in southern Africa). And even there, people have smartphones connected to the Internet.

This was inconceivable 15 years ago.

Most people still consider ‘luxuries’ to be things that require a lot of money-- private jets, fancy cars, and expensive champagne.

But as corny as it may sound, I believe one of the biggest luxuries right now is freedom.



Covid-19 lockdowns around the world have taught us how precious freedom is, and how easily simple things like going outside, breathing fresh air, and the ability to travel, can be taken away from us by people who refuse to follow their own rules.

Frankly this was another theme of the Soviet Union—the big bosses had one set of rules for themselves, and the rest of us peasants had another set of rules that we had to follow.

You see this all over the Western world now, with politicians who can’t be bothered to adhere to their own lockdowns, but require everyone else to isolate from friends and family.

It’s easy to be angry about this. But it’s more effective to do something about it.

Unlike expensive luxuries like fancy handbags and supercars, freedom doesn’t require suitcases full of cash. It requires rational thinking, the right information, and the will to take action.

You might be eligible for a second passport, practically for free, simply because you have ancestors from a certain country (including my native Lithuania!)

And having a second passport or second residency is a huge step towards being able to take back your freedom. It means that, no matter what rules are imposed, you’ll at least have another place you can go.

Fear Has Won In America

Now that it looks like Joe Biden may become the next POTUS, Americans are preparing for ANOTHER lockdown, emptying stores around the country…
