You cannot stand aside, watching America go pure Marxist and do nothing to save what is so DEAR to us all.

Face facts. We are watching in silence everything meaningful to us fall into oblivion in large chunks almost on a daily basis.

There is no need to list the many freedoms that threaten to be obliterated. Reading about this horror does nothing to reverse this cliff, for which we have been pushovers. The slippery slope is well behind us. The hellhole of the Marxist is growing like a giant vacuum sucking the life out of us all, even if you are sleeping or just plain ignorant.

In 1776, there was a mandate of King David not unlike the “Red Flag” now being debated by the legislative will, if not eliminated from the financial bill, in discussion for an upcoming vote. America will be disarmed on something as simple as a complaint from your woke neighbor. As a result, the Second Amendment will be amended out of existence.

The Colonies in 1776 were the true home of the brave, as farmers took their squirrel guns and dared to take on the largest military power on the planet at that time. The Revolution has little to do with taxation . It had everything to do with a forced mandate from King David.

If this “Red Flag” becomes law the Constitution is fully destroyed. Did you do anything to stop it?

I am by no means s adopting the battle cry of our Founding Fathers which was “To Arms, To Arms.” Citizens have no power to fight a techno-armed force.

However, we are to let our deepest faith be known as ” One Nation Under God,” in a democratic non-confrontational way.

If you do not have an American flag – buy one. It can be 10 inches out of an apartment window or ten feet on a large property. Fly your flag in defiance of American Marxism by any new fancy name, or by any new narrative being promulgated.

Be Proud of Old Glory. Be it a lapel pin or a large flag on a pole. You are then publicly saying NO to American Marxism and to those that would burn her.

Be brave enough to simply express your feeling right in their faces. So many proudly died for this privilege. Use it or we all succumb quietly to the fallen angels of Satan, so powerful among the world’s elite 1% Globalists.

Love her, or Leave her

“WOW” pretty much sums it up! They get to resign and keep the spoils? And the punchline is …gold and silver are down in the aftermath because the dollar is a stronger entity now that we know the corruption goes to the very top? Any questions?

Robert Kaplan Was Trading Like a Hedge Fund Kingpin for Five Years while President of the Dallas Fed; a Dozen Legal Safeguards Failed to Stop Him
September 27, 2021

Dallas Fed President, Robert Kaplan, wasn’t just trading like an aggressive hedge fund kingpin in 2020, he’s been doing the same thing for five years at the Dallas Fed while simultaneously having access to non-public, market moving information from the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate setting FOMC meetings and other confidential communications.

In 2017 and 2020, Kaplan was a voting member of the FOMC. In the other years since he joined the Dallas Fed in 2015, he sat in on the confidential FOMC deliberations and was allowed to participate in the discussions.

Each of Kaplan’s financial disclosures forms dating back to when he first became Dallas Fed President on September 8, 2015 (which we obtained directly from the Dallas Fed), show that Kaplan was trading in and out of S&P 500 futures, a highly speculative form of trading used by hedge funds and day traders. Each of Kaplan’s S&P 500 transactions are listed at “over $1 million.” The phrase “over $1 million” could mean anything from $1,000,001 to tens of millions of dollars per transaction. The phrase is a form of opacity that leads to more loss of credibility at the Dallas Fed.

30 Facts You NEED To Know: Your Covid Cribsheet
September 22, 2021

We get a lot of e-mails and private messages along these lines “do you have a source for X?” or “can you point me to mask studies?” or “I know I saw a graph for mortality, but I can’t find it anymore”. And we understand, it’s been a long 18 months, and there are so many statistics and numbers to try and keep straight in your head.

So, to deal with all these requests, we decided to make a bullet-pointed and sourced list for all th

Here are key facts and sources about the alleged “pandemic”, that will help you get a grasp on what has happened to the world since January 2020, and help you enlighten any of your friends who might be still trapped in the New Normal fog (click links to skip):

“Covid deaths” – Lockdowns – PCR Tests – “asymptomatic infection” – Ventilators – Masks – Vaccines – Deception & Foreknowledge

Part I: “Covid deaths” & mortality

1. The survival rate of “Covid” is over 99%. Government medical experts went out of their way to underline, from the beginning of the pandemic, that the vast majority of the population are not in any danger from Covid.

Private Equity May Now Own Your Life Insurance Policy
September 26, 2021

Ownership of many life insurance policies are changing hands from the traditional insurers who once ran the industry to private equity and asset management companies.

While insurers look to offload the risks associated with policies, names like Blackstone are moving into the industry, according to a new write up by the Wall Street Journal. The shift has been caused by rates falling, which has “led traditional insurers, which invest policyholders’ premiums and the capital backing up their obligations primarily in plain-vanilla bonds, to retreat from products most hurt by low rates”.

In other words, insurers are looking to get out of the policies and annuities that become a drag on profitability thanks to the Fed rigging the bond market.

Gerald Celente, a renowned trends researcher, is back this time to talk about uniting for the fight for freedom.  If we don’t, we will all be a “slave on the Slavelandia plantation” or worse.  Whether it’s the economic repression or coerced vaccinations, the problem comes from the elite masters and corporations running the world.  You are seeing this in the economy that, under the surface, is stalling out. Celente explains, “Drug store chains, grocery chains, stationery chains, hardware chains, chains, that’s all we are.  We are run by the chain.  So, they don’t care about the general economy.  All they are caring about is boosting the equities, and that’s all they are doing. . . .  The economy is going down already.  It’s not being shown because it not showing up in the markets. . . . Median household income has had its sharpest decline since they have been taking records. . . . The average price of a home now is $365,000, but where is the growth?”

Celente says that since the Covid crisis, mom and pops have been driven out of business leaving market share for big companies.  Celente also says, “Once upon a time, America was called the land of opportunity.  That’s gone, finito, finished.  The bigs are in control of everything.  They run our government.  They run our lives.  It’s banksters, the drug dealers (Big Pharma), the Military Industrial Complex and Big Tech.  So, the markets have nothing to do with reality.”

Heckler’s Veto: 66% Of College Students Say Stopping Speech Is Free Speech
September 24, 2021

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

We have previously discussed the worrisome signs of a rising generation of censors in the country as leaders and writers embrace censorship and blacklisting. The latest chilling poll was released by 2021 College Free Speech Rankings after questioning a huge body of 37,000 students at 159 top-ranked U.S. colleges and universities. It found that sixty-six percent of college students think shouting down a speaker to stop them from speaking is a legitimate form of free speech. Another 23 percent believe violence can be used to cancel a speech. That is roughly one out of four supporting violence.

Faculty and editors are now actively supporting modern versions of book-burning with blacklists and bans for those with opposing political views. Others are supporting actual book burning. Columbia Journalism School Dean Steve Coll has denounced the “weaponization” of free speech, which appears to be the use of free speech by those on the right. So the dean of one of the premier journalism schools now supports censorship.Free speech advocates are facing a generational shift that is now being reflected in our law schools, where free speech principles were once a touchstone of the rule of law. As millions of students are taught that free speech is a threat and that “China is right” about censorship, these figures are shaping a new society in their own intolerant images.

The most chilling aspect of this story is how many on left applaud such censorship. A prior poll shows roughly half of the public supporting not just corporate censorship but government censorship of anything deemed “misinformation.” Perhaps the same citizens and academics will embrace the Chinese model on social scoring and praise actions that the reported move by Chase bank.

We discussed this issue recently with regard to a lawsuit against SUNY. It is also discussed in my forthcoming law review article, Jonathan Turley, Harm and Hegemony: The Decline of Free Speech in the United States, 45 Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy (2021).

Over 3,000 Doctors and Scientists Sign Declaration Accusing COVID Policy-Makers of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’
September 24, 2021

A “Physicians’ Declaration” produced by an international alliance of physicians and medical scientists strongly condemns the global strategy to treat COVID, accusing policy-makers of potential “crimes against humanity” for preventing physicians from providing life-saving treatments for their patients and suppressing open scientific discussion.

The document states that “one size fits all” treatment recommendations have resulted in needless illness and death.

As of 1:00 Friday afternoon, the declaration had garnered over 3,100 signatures from doctors and scientists around the world.

A group of physicians and scientists met in Rome, Italy earlier this month for a three day Global Covid Summit to speak “truth to power about Covid pandemic research and treatment.”

The summit, which was held from September 12 to September 14, gave the medical professionals an opportunity to compare studies, and assess the efficacy of the various treatments that have been developed in hospitals, doctors offices and research labs throughout the world.

The document, reprinted below in its entirety, sprang from that conference.

The Clock Is Ticking: The Financial Crisis Is Now Potentially 30 Days Away
September 25, 2021

By Stan Szymanski

On Thursday the worlds’ most in hock (indebted) developer, Evergrande, let its’ interest payment on its dollar denominated bond due March 2022 come and go without the interest payment being made to bond holders. Technically, they are not in default until 30 days past the due date of the payment date of the bond. On the heels of that event, Evergrande has another interest payment due on another dollar denominated bond this coming Wednesday.

Just this past Wednesday CBS News ran a story stating that Evergrande -would- make its interest payment that are due this week. That payment was not made as promised. Companies that know they are circling the drain put out information to keep comforting investors that are worried. They also put out this information to try to keep these same investors from becoming sellers of the wretched security of the potentially bankrupt institution and pushing the price of the security into the dirt.

Although that horse has already left the barn and Evergrande stock and bond prices have already been pummeled, in a CNBC article by Weizhen Tan dated 9/23/21 states that ‘Market sentiment was somewhat soothed when Evergrande assured investors on Wednesday that it would fulfil its interest payment on a mainland-traded, yuan-denominated bond also due Thursday.’ So the company is saying that they -would- pay their yuan denominated interest obligations while letting the dollar denominated bond interest payments ride (for now) through the 30 day grace period.
