You take the government’s money, you dance to the government’s tune.

The semiconductor industry is learning that this week — good and hard.

Yesterday the White House rolled out its terms and conditions for companies that want a cut of the $39 billion in subsidies included in the CHIPS Act passed last year.

Among other things, says this morning’s New York Times, “they will need to provide child care for employees, run their plants on low-emission sources of energy, pay union wages for construction workers, shun stock buybacks and potentially share certain profits with the government.

“That decision is a bet on the power of the federal government to transform private industry. But it is also a distinct break from how the United States has traditionally engaged with corporate America.”

Let’s call it what it is — an attempted nationalization of the one American industry government hasn’t totally mucked up at this point. Socialism through the back door.

Catherine Austin Fitts is one of the leading voices in the truth and liberty movement when it comes to financial sovereignty and independence. 

In "I Want to Stop CBDCs – What Can I Do?", Catherine recommends:

1.   Bank at an intimate scale at a local bank or credit union in your community. After all, these people stand to lose their jobs when CBDCs are implemented and are incentivized to help you fight back against a new financial slave system, too. 

2.   Buy from people you can trust and that support your values. Shop at smaller grocery stores rather than Walmart, boutique shops rather than Amazon, family restaurants rather than chains, etc. 

3.   Arm yourself, train your shooting skills, and stock up on ammo just in case SHTF. 

4.   Live a more "analog" life, meaning, LESS digital and more IRL activities. Also, remove surveillance systems from your home such as Alexa or Echo or other smart devices. 

5.   And above all, use cash as often as possible. Cash is still king when it comes to financial sovereignty and privacy. 

She recommends a few more things, but these are the best takeaways.
I'd like to add one more recommendation to this list...

CREATE cash-based alternatives that people in your community can benefit from

As the saying goes, “money makes the world go around,” but today’s battle of digital currencies, inflation, and paper currency has humanity at a tipping point between freedom and fascism.

The pandemic and accompanying lockdowns have been wildly successful, creating the right environment for total control of society, health, money, and food. Huge portions of the population, influenced by fear and mind control, are in complete submission. Every aspect of life and how it functions is now approaching Mr. Global’s grasp.

Why the need for total control? Who knows.  People like Catherine and Dr. Joseph Farrell have spent decades trying to figure it out…

It all starts with practicing emergency preparedness.


Stock up on long-term emergency food, invest in a water filtration system, and keep extra medications on hand.


Consider all the basics of emergency preparedness for hurricanes, earthquakes, and power outages – and prepare the same way.

1. Invest in a Water Filtration System

One of the scarier cyber attacks recently was when a cyber criminal tried to poison a Florida city’s water supply.

The hacker gained access into their systems and upped the sodium hydroxide levels to dangerous levels.

Unfortunately, these types of cyber attacks on critical infrastructures, such as water treatment plants, are on the rise.

Given that public water systems can be attacked by cyber criminals, it is wise to consider investing in a water filtration system for your home.


2. Stock Up on Emergency Food

Emergency preparedness always involves stocking up on emergency food.

Just as you would stock up before a hurricane or keep a pantry full of non-perishables in the winter, you should have emergency food in case of pandemics, martial law, riots, etc.

How to Choose The Perfect Stove for Off-Grid Cooking

Whether you’re a survivalist, camper, or an off-grid enthusiast, we can all agree that camping outside presents some unique challenges. Choosing the right cooking stove is based on a lot of factors that can change on a dime, depending on how mother nature is feeling that day. 

The market is inundated with products from all over the world that run off of various fuel types, all with different cooking capabilities. To decide which stove is best, you have to understand the type of situation you will be cooking in.

Cooking in an off-grid environment is a much different experience than simply turning on your stove at home and heating some food. For example, precipitation can mean the difference between having an outdoor kitchen and a miserable time...

How Your Family Can Make a Difference on $5 or Less

Even struggling families can teach their kids to be thoughtful! Here are five ways your family can help others. It won’t cost you but a few bucks, but the values it can teach your kids are priceless.

50 Preparedness Items for Less Than $5 Each

Prepping can be expensive if you're buying huge boxes of freeze-dried food and the latest survival gadgets. But if you buy a few small items every week for several years, eventually you'll have everything you need to survive a disaster (short of something apocalyptic like a nuclear war).

In this article, I'm going to prove my point by listing 50 items for less than $5 each. Many of these aren't normally thought of as "preparedness items," but nonetheless they are things you'll want to have during a long-term disaster, so even if you already have some of them, it can't hurt to have extra.

The new year has just begun, so here's what I suggest if you're a brand new prepper. Every week, buy one of these items along with a day's worth of food for your family...

The Left is assaulting America [the Middle Class] on ALL fronts from our pocketbook to schools to morality and seems supported by most media hacks. It's a challenge to see so may work in tandem to undermine our nation. too many traitors screwing America.

Disasters and emergencies happen every single day. Earthquakes, wildfires, tornados, hurricanes, car accidents, and even pandemics are all events that happen on a normal basis. These are things we should be prepared for, but none of us really are. Having an emergency survival kit doesn’t make you paranoid, it makes you smart.
