"Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore, Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible..." -- George Orwell, 1984

The problem with wars, beyond all the death and destruction, is that they are seldom fought for the reasons that governments claim. In most cases, there is an underlying agenda which the public may or may not discover many decades later, and such agendas are not for our benefit. Wars rarely erupt over mere circumstance. Wars are rarely random.

War is a tool for social engineering because war creates crisis for the unprepared masses, and as the unprepared scramble for safety, the state can institute authoritarian powers they never could have asserted in peacetime. Not only this, but in our modern era over the past century there has been a distinct pattern following the aftermath of each war in which power and governance are centralized. Every time disaster strikes, the proposed solution is global government. You would think the political elites would offer some new ideas after 100 years... but no, they only have one idea that they try to sell to us relentlessly.

Today the American people find themselves in the middle of numerous wars including two relatively new conflicts — the "war" on the coronavirus, and the war on China. Neither fight is meant to keep us safe. Both serve the interests of a highly select group of people. Getting people to understand this, though, is a difficult task.

Certain assumptions are almost always present in war, and the biggest assumption made by people is that the fight is between two governments and two nations. This is usually not the case. In fact, the real fight is the governments and the elites that control them versus the citizens of both nations. This fact is backed by considerable evidence collected by researchers like Antony Sutton. His book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution as well as his book Wall Street And The Rise Of Hitler outline a clear and provable conspiracy by global elites to fund both sides of any given conflict and then benefit through further globalization when the ashes settle.

I have been warning for many years about this same dynamic being created between the U.S. and the East, specifically Russia and China. In my articles on what I call the "false East/West paradigm," I give ample evidence that the very same money elites who control Washington also greatly influence nations like China through a shared ideology.

Yes, that's right, the elites of China and the elites of the U.S. are on the same team and have the same goals. There is no war, at least not at the top of the pyramid. Their stated goals include the creation of a one-world digital currency system controlled by the International Monetary Fund and a 24/7 surveillance society in which every person on the planet is tracked through biometrics and through the blockchain. Without tracking, participation is denied. In other words, you submit or you starve.

The pandemic, or the war on the "invisible enemy" as Trump calls it, is an excellent cover event for these goals. China has already launched its own tracking apps and immunity passports using cell phones and QR codes. These same measures are being pushed forward here in the U.S. by elites like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The revelation that China's Wuhan Lab received millions of dollars in funding from the U.S. government for work on SARS-like viruses, greenlit by none other than Dr. Fauci in 2015, is but one of many instances in a long trail of aid and support that came from the West and the U.N. to China, from weapons development to economic support to viral research.

Did the U.S. help create a monster? If we did, it was a monster that the elites absolutely wanted and have a specific use for.

I have long believed that China would be the primary villain used as a catalyst to trigger the "economic reset" that the globalists desire, but the roles of the U.S. and China will remain ambiguous and amoral as this conflict drags on. For many in the U.S., China is seen as an economic pirate and now the cause of the coronavirus pandemic. As I noted in last week's article, this is in some ways true but not the whole truth. Without the aid of Western governments and the World Health Organization, the spread of the pandemic would not have been possible.

Now, the other big distraction, the trade war, is about to return to the mainstream discussion, and in the trade war, we see the forever war unfold.

To be clear, the trade war never ended. I have said that the Phase 1 deal was a farce of epic proportions and that it was designed to fail as China would never be able to fulfill the promises they made to increase U.S. export purchases. Well, we'll never know now as the coronavirus has become the prevailing excuse to nix the trade deal and accelerate trade tensions. Of course, in this case, Trump plays the monster as he initiates renewed trade attacks on China in the middle of a global crisis; at least, that is what the mainstream media is saying.

I warned that this would happen back in January. In fact, CNN even cites the comparison between Trump and Hoover at the onset of the Great Depression — something I also warned would happen back in 2018.

In this scenario, Trump continues to play the role of bumbling conservative villain for leftists and much of the socialist world, while China plays the villain for U.S. conservatives as they rally around Trump, a pied piper leading them to disaster.

Scrutiny over China's role in suppressing the source of the virus as well as the real numbers of infected and dead is creating unprecedented tensions between East and West, but of course, we are meant to forget in all of this the fact that the elites in the West kept flights going for weeks after human-to-human transmission was identified and thousands had died in China. We are also meant to forget that Trump and Dr. Fauci denied any threat from the virus for months and defended Chinese data back in January. The pandemic tango needs at least two dancers to successfully spread. China did not act alone.

For now, Trump has announced the possibility of increased tariffs for China. China has responded to accusations of a virus cover-up with warnings of a possible war with the U.S.

China has expanded into the South China Sea during the pandemic which is being treated as an exploitation of the crisis. But ultimately, I think the war will be primarily an economic one, as this serves the interests of the globalists most.

The primary target, in my view, is the U.S. dollar's world reserve status along with the U.S. economy. With the pandemic speeding up the process of nations going cashless, it is a no-brainer that the digital monetary world will end the dollar's long time role as world reserve. Add to this the huge crash in oil demand and oil prices to which the dollar derives its power, as well as the fact that the Federal Reserve has printed another $6 trillion which has barely stalled the market collapse and has not solved any of the underlying deflationary problems.

We now have a recipe for what is sometimes called a "stagflationary event," which means price inflation in certain necessities and hard assets and deflation in other parts of the economy. Foreign Treasury bond holdings will probably continue to dwindle as this event progresses. Dollars are sought after for now, but this will change as more and more nations go digital.

For people in the U.S., I believe the intent is to convince us that China has ruined everything — our health, our economy, our dollar, etc. I think the war, in one form or another, is supposed to last for a very long time; at least, until the globalists get everything they want.

We are supposed to forget all about the globalists and their creation of the very conditions that led to this collapse in the first place. Is the Chinese government being falsely accused? No, they are a part of the problem and they did indeed help cause a global pandemic and financial crash, but they are not the whole problem. And this is where big lies gain power — all big lies contain a kernel of truth.

To truth and knowledge,

Justice Dems Open Big-Money Floodgates With Formation of New Super PAC

Justice Democrats, a far-left political group associated with the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democratic Party, has quietly formed a super PAC.
The move opens the big-money floodgates for a group that routinely lambasts the "power of large corporations, billionaires, and wealthy campaign contributions in our democracy." Natalie Trent, treasurer of the Justice Democrats PAC, informed the Federal Election Commission on May 1 that the group is creating a new account that is able to collect unlimited contributions from corporations and labor groups.



You probably already know that you should be prepping for food shortages, especially during these quarantines and lockdowns (with store shelves empty for so many of us for the first time in YEARS).

But to review, 
remember these 3 tips:

--1. Every time you buy food, buy more than you need as long as it will keep for a good while. That way, your food stockpile gets a little bit bigger each time.

--2. Eat some of the food you buy for "survival purposes" and rotate it out of your stockpile. You do this so that, when you have to rely on that food to get you through lean times, you're not radically changing your diet and "shocking" your system. Changing the food you eat suddenly can give you the runs or cause other issues.

--3. Keep an eye on the sodium content of any of the dehydrated survival foods you buy. Salt content in all our processed foods is really high anyway, but it can be worse in some survival food. Even ramen noodles WITHOUT the flavor packet are very high in salt. If you're sensitive to salt intake, be really careful to ration your food so you don't eat too much sodium at once.

It also helps to have an 
overall survival food plan - a way to plan ahead so that you're ALWAYS ready for when these food shortages come up. I found a great set of survival food plans online (although the NASA Doom video is a little weird, the information content of these manuals is really good):
