A Digest of Urban Survival Resources



My last analysis focused on the unfolding economic consequences of the corona catastrophe that really should never have happened. Instead due to gross incompetence and negligence of our governments we are rapidly descending down a black hole the depths of which we can only guess at, as economic contraction numbers for Q2 range from -20% to -40% for the UK and the US. For worse than anyone could have imagined even a few weeks ago as the gauge of possibilities were mostly centered around the Financial Crisis of 2008. Where this crisis apparently looks set to be many times worse! ALL courtesy of the headless chickens in charge with their mad scientists advising them.

If you think the TV talking heads are there to inform you of the truth about what’s going on during this health crisis…

Or if you expect our media to be fair and balanced regardless of who’s in the White House…

Please do us both a favor and stop reading now.

The liberal media would have you believe that we’re in the midst of some horrifying medieval plague that will leave tens of millions dead.

But what if it was all just an overhyped “crisis” cooked up by desperate liberals to destroy President Trump?


How does one define an economic "reopening"?

I think most people would say that a reopening means that everything goes back to the way it was before the crisis... or at least as close as possible. Simply saying "America has reopened" while keeping many restrictions in place in certain parts of the country, continuing to inject bailout after bailout and continuing to see a steady number of deaths from the coronavirus seem to me to be a bit of a farce.

For example, both New York and Los Angeles have extended their lockdown; with Los Angeles's extension remaining ambiguous after they initially declared restrictions for another three months. New York's lockdown is extended to the end of May (so far). This is the case in many major U.S. cities, while rural areas are mostly open. This is being called a "partial reopening," but is there a purpose behind the uneven approach?

As I predicted in my article "Pandemic and economic collapse — the next 60 days," the restrictions will continue in major U.S. population centers while rural areas have mostly opened with much fanfare. The end result of this will be a flood of city dwellers into rural towns looking for relief from more strict lockdown conditions. In about a month, we should expect new viral clusters in places where there was limited transmission. I suggest that before the 4th of July holiday, state governments and the federal government will be talking about new lockdowns, using the infection spike as an excuse.

This is happening in Northeast China right now — another resurgence has occurred, and 100 million people are now subject to quarantine restrictions. China's reopening is barely two weeks old, and concerns of infections "flare-ups" were widespread when the announcement was made. Now the mainstream media seems to be confused; is China open or locked down? Of course, we may never know how bad the problem is and was in China as their numbers have been shown to be utterly rigged, but the point is that the term "reopening" is meaningless there, just as it will be meaningless here in the U.S.

This is part of the plan. The farce of reopening has a purpose. I discuss this in great detail in my article "Waves of mutilation: Medical tyranny and the cashless society" published in April. The globalists are clearly the only beneficiaries of this event; with a worldwide surveillance state now openly on the table along with an accelerated shift into digital currency systems, the globalists are either taking advantage of this crisis to push their agenda or they created the crisis to push their agenda.

white papers published by globalists at the Imperial College of London and MIT, the plan is openly admitted. They suggest using "waves" of economic openings and then lockdowns to control the spread of the virus. The timelines seem to vary, but in general the models call for a one month open/ two months closed cycle. The goal is to deliberately increase infections every couple of months in specific regions of a country, then declare economic shutdown and quarantine measures once the spread reaches a certain level; this is meant to continue until a vaccine is developed, which could take years.

When the globalists at MIT say "We are not going back to normal," this is what they mean. Right now, the general public is cheering the reopenings, but what they don't realize is that the reopenings are an illusion. Restrictions are going to remain in place in some states and cities, while they will be lifted and then re-instituted in others. In fact, the situation is going to become much worse over time, by design.

The next lockdown, whenever it is announced, will be absolutely devastating to the U.S. economy which is already in a downward spiral. The mitigating factors will be how effective central bank stimulus is at stalling the freefall (not very effective so far), what percentage of small businesses survive the first lockdown and how many jobs those businesses can bring back to the economy. The first lockdown may be survivable for a large percentage of Americans and businesses; the second lockdown will financially destroy all but the most prepared. And make no mistake, there will be more lockdowns.

In the meantime, international banks like Wells Fargo and JP Morgan have seen to it that small businesses are hit hard by the crisis by funneling bailout money and paycheck loans to their larger clients over the smaller businesses that the money was intended to go to. Of the 300,000 clients of JP Morgan that applied for an emergency loan through the government bailout program, only 18,000 actually received one and many of these clients were not small businesses.

If the cycle of lockdowns continues, small businesses will be wiped off the map. The elites have rigged the game; they control where every dollar of the bailout money goes, and many of their corporations are the only institutions that are equipped to survive the onslaught. Some of these companies will go down, but in the long run the goal, in my view, is the total centralization of production and distribution.

This is exactly what happened during the Great Depression when JP Morgan and other major banks devoured thousands of small local banks across the country and removed them as competitors from the system. After the depression, banking was completely centralized into the hands of a select few mega-companies. Today, they are attempting to erase all localized small business competition to international corporations.

Taking over the business infrastructure of entire nations and removing all independent competition is only one incentive for the lockdowns to continue. There is also the process of acclimating the public to the idea that lockdowns are the "new normal." While I do see resistance in certain parts of the world, including the U.S., many countries in Asia and Europe have witnessed a rather sheepish response to the idea of medical tyranny. I also see an immense flashfire of unconstitutional legislation and illegal state measures being rolled out in the U.S. while the public is distracted by financial circumstances and the virus threat.

Certainly, it appears that most Americans hate the lockdowns. But will they be fooled by the "reopening" into complacency for the next several weeks while the government gets ready to hit them with the next round of restrictions? Will they be so caught off guard they won't know how to react? Imagine the economic devastation of just one more nationwide lockdown event? It will be carnage and a lot of hope within the population will be lost.

This will lead to two possible paths: submission or rebellion. Either the majority of the American people will accept the lockdowns as a new fact of everyday life or they will become so enraged by the destruction of their economy that they will revolt.

If the intent is to keep the cycle going until a vaccine is introduced and elitist publications assert, then we have a long way to go and this first lockdown was child's play compared to what comes next.

The excuse for the wave model will be that they need to control and slow the spread of infection over time to avoid overwhelming our medical infrastructure. But this makes very little sense to me at this stage. Perhaps within the first month or two of the pandemic this makes some sense, so that we could gauge the threat of the virus. What we know right now is that the virus is at least three times more deadly than the annual flu, which is something to be concerned about... but not something we should be destroying our economy over.

Frankly, there's no logic to the wave model unless the agenda is to destroy the economy. If the goal is to continue infecting the population until everyone has developed an immunity or a vaccine is offered, then why not simply remove all the lockdowns permanently and get it over with now? This would result in far fewer deaths in the long run compared to economic collapse. If the goal is so-called "herd immunity," then we can achieve that much faster through viral transmission than waiting years for a vaccine that may or may not work.

But the elites don't care about "herd immunity." What they care about is control. The vaccine narrative itself is a form of control. You have to wait for the establishment to save you. You have to wait for them to allow the economy to be opened, even for a short period of time, so that you can then be allowed to work or run your business. You have to wait for permission to live your normal life. And, if the elites get their way, you won't be given permission until you accept immunity passports, tracking apps and a vaccine.

I will be covering the vaccine issue in a future article, but the underlying message that the public is hearing daily is that you no longer have the power to make decisions for yourself, you must wait for instructions. While the coronavirus is something that should be taken seriously (to a point), the wave model is not an acceptable solution to the problem.

Do not be fooled by the reopening. It is not real because it is not meant to last. It is a steam valve to calm public outrage and to condition us to periodic tyranny. The elites believe that we will eventually acclimate to lockdowns as long as we have a reopening to look forward to a couple of months down the road. They believe that our tendency to rebel will be suppressed by false hopes that the next reopening will be a permanent reopening. They believe that after 18 months or more of the wave model we will be so desperate for normalcy that we will do anything to get it, including willingly giving up every last ounce of freedom we have left. This is the true purpose of the pandemic.

To truth and knowledge,

 Making the most of what you have on hand... and for right now, what you have on hand might be time.

 Right now, I've got some time on my hands... I previously mentioned that I've been developing my woodworking skills. I've also been brushing up on some traditional food preservation techniques.

 Our ancestors lived this earth over many centuries before us, even back when there was no oven, no electric meat dryer, freezer or refrigerator.
They survived despite not having the tools for modern food preservation. The lack of all this comfort we have surrounded ourselves with today didn’t stop them from surviving. They made the best of what little resources they had available at the time.

With simple tools like a piece of metal or sharpened wood they were able to hunt animals and preserve meat for extended periods through a process of drying or smoking meat.

The art of smoking meat as a way of preserving it probably started many thousands of years ago. An early tribesman would simply hang out meat to dry. The lack of chimneys in ancient caves and huts often made their shelters smoky. Early people realized soon enough that hanging out meat in such smoky places made meat acquire a different flavor and meat was also preserved for longer periods of time, avoiding spoilage.

 Smoking as a way to flavor and dry out meat and extend it's life became preferred. 

Over time, early people also discovered that adding salt (curing) to the meat also increases its shelf life dramatically. Thus curing and smoking became popular and passed on from one civilization to the next.

 This curing and smoking process continues to today - ham, bacon, and many forms of charcuterie still follow this basic process to this day.
