Surviving the Globalist ‘Reset’ – An Underground Financial System

Making money in the underground economy

As the Great Reset attempts to constrict everyday commerce…

More people inevitably want to know how to participate in the underground counter-economy to buy and sell goods and services beneath the prying eyes of the regulatory state.


   Over the years I’ve written about setting up your own barter system creating community currencies*, using precious metals and learning useful skills to enhance your financial position.

This pandemic and forced shutdowns [especially in our state of MI] forced the closure of thousands of small businesses and the layoff of millions by Dem Govs/Mayors...many say purposely.  Though many of those laid off got some really nice bonus government bucks added to unemployment compensation [for which taxes will be due this year]…many that we know sold stuff online to supplement incomes or, in the case of some hair stylists, cut hair in secret in the basements or kitchens to earn money – completely off-the-books or course.

eBay, Amazon, Bonanza and other online selling sites saw huge increases in sales…some we know did well, others not as well. With fees and increased postage hikes and so much competition, it’s tough to eke out a profit.  I use multiple sites and a local auction house to consign items to in their monthly online auction and manage a profit [this is how we donated to Veteran groups].

The Coming Collapse of the Republic

We’re just one election away from full-blown socialism, a man recently said to me during a short conversation. This sentiment has become increasingly common lately. Even among the previously apolitical. Yet something is overlooked:

In keeping with President Reagans observation, Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction, being one election away from tyranny means that not enough people noticed and took action when we were one generation away or two or three.

Also perhaps overlooked is that being one election away from tyranny now means well be one election away after the next election whatever happened November 3.

“The bottom line is that COVID is being weaponized to use vaccines and testing as channels to enhance what is already a massive surveillance state,”

Throughout the year, we’ve seen constitutional liberties tossed aside in favor of draconian government power. The worst part is that ordinary Americans were conditioned to celebrate it.

Big Brother is in your pocket,” Jim Rickards says, “and he’s not leaving anytime soon.

“We all know the surveillance state is in full swing,” he continues. “Amazon tracks your online purchases. Google tracks your Gmail message traffic. Facebook knows more about you than your mother knows. Apple tracks your whereabouts using the GPS function on your iPhone.

“That’s all bad enough,” says Jim. “But what happens when you combine digital surveillance with pandemic dictatorship?”

There is no doubt in my mind that, especially among younger Americans, socialism is increasingly attractive—and that this threatens the future of American liberty. As Winston Churchill noted, “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.” And education is the surest way to defeat it.  Better to start thinking of ways to earn a living via an underground economy!

A group of clandestine transactions that create value that are conducted with intent of escaping something- taxes, bribes, poverty, regulation, etc.

While estimates vary, some put the underground economy at 11% to 12% of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), or roughly $2.25 to $2.5 trillion. Elements of the underground economy vary from nation to nation.

It also includes everything from prostitution and drugs to arms sales to food stamp and welfare fraud…

The New Black Market: Understanding the Underground Economy

The underground economy, or black market, encompasses all off-the-books or unlicensed activities that make money. It’s a shadow economy of informal transactions that go untaxed. Law enforcement and security professionals play an important role in fighting the crime and illegal activity occurring in the underground economy.

What Is the Black Market?

According to Investopedia, black markets include “economic activity that takes place outside government-sanctioned channels.” These under-the-table transactions seek to avoid taxes or government regulation. So where and why do black markets thrive and gro

*A CCS is a agreement among members of a community (individuals and/or enterprises) to accept a certain exchange medium, which is not the national currency. The community currency is only valid within the community, thus stimulating local demand and eliminating the leakage effect commonly caused by imports.

We must fight as our country is at stake. In a larger sense, civilization itself is at stake, because the forces arrayed against the scholarship and the politics of freedom today have more radical aims than just destroying America…

What would or should be a logical argument against dividing America into two nations? It’s obvious Democrats want to overturn our Constitution & replace it w/ socialism; most of us do not want that…I’d even suggest we could start by turning MI into states as socialist-dems routinely gut our elections.

Thanks to developments over the last few days, it's now clear that President Trump has chosen the "declassification" option to release damning documents that will expose the criminal corruption of key deep state players.

The right people have been put in place to make this happen, and we expect to see more actions initiated over the next 4-5 days.

Making money in the underground economy

As the Great Reset attempts to constrict everyday commerce…

More people inevitably want to know how to participate in the underground counter-economy to buy and sell goods and services beneath the prying eyes of the regulatory state.

Case in point, a subscriber sent me the following message and I decided to dedicate this email to answering his question:

I am thinking about starting a "shop" to sell or buy essential items for the people who may get excluded from society due to the "great reset"

People talk about what a crazy year 2020 has been, but if you ask me, it's been a crazy decade.

We've had record-breaking hurricanes, wildfires, and natural disasters. We've gone through not one, but two of the worst economic downturns since the Great Depression. And the world has become even more dangerous, with scientists putting the doomsday clock closer to midnight than ever before.

 None of this bodes well for the next decade. So what can we expect from the 2020s? In this video, City Prepping talks about six things to watch for in the next 10 years. Here's what he talks about...

A lot of people I know sell drugs, both prescription & illegal, in order to make ends meet. I don't condone it but vice always does well-good times or bad.
