Globalists WILL Sacrifice the Dollar to Get their 'New World Order'

Again, as-yet unpublished at Bob Livingston's Personal Liberty, by Brandon Smith:

Trade is a fundamental element of human survival. No one person can produce every single product or service necessary for a comfortable life, no matter how spartan their attitude. Unless your goal is to desperately scratch an existence from your local terrain with no chance of progress in the future, you are going to need a network of other producers. For most of the history of human civilization, production was the basis for economy. All other elements were secondary.

At some point, as trade grows and thrives, a society is going to start looking for a store of value; something that represents the man-hours and effort and ingenuity a person put into their day. Something that is universally accepted within barter networks, something highly prized, that is tangible, that can be held in our hands and is impossible to replicate artificially. Enter precious metals and stones.

Thus, the concept of "money" was born, and for the most part it functioned quite well for thousands of years. Unfortunately, there are people in our world that see economy as a tool for control rather than a vital process that should be left alone to develop naturally.

The idea of "fiat money," money which has no tangibility and that can be created on a whim by a central source or authority, is rather new in the grand scheme of things. It is a bastardization of the original and much more stable money system that existed before that was anchored to hard commodities. While it claims to offer a more "liquid" store of value, the truth is that it is no store of value at all.

Purveyors of fiat, central banks and globalists, use ever increasing debt as a means to feed fiat, not to mention the hidden tax of price inflation. When central bankers get hold of money, it is no longer a representation of work or value, but a system of enslavement that crushes our ability to produce effectively and to receive fair returns for our labor.

There are many people today in the liberty movement that understand this dynamic, but even in alternative economic circles there are some that do not understand the full picture when it comes to central banks and fiat mechanisms. There is a false notion that paper currencies are the life blood of the establishment and that they will seek to protect these currencies at all costs. This might have been true 20 years ago or more, but it is not true today. Things change.

The king of this delusion is the U.S. dollar. As the world reserve currency, it is thought by some to be "untouchable," a pillar of the globalist structure that will be defended for many decades to come. The reality, however, is that the dollar is nothing more than another con game on paper to the globalists; a farce that they are happy to sacrifice in order to further their goals of complete centralization of the world's trade and therefore complete centralization of control over human survival.

That is to say, the dollar is a steppingstone for them, nothing more.

The real goal of the globalists is an economic system in which they can monitor every transaction no matter how small; a system in which there is eventually only one currency, a currency that can be tracked, granted or taken away at a moment's notice. Imagine a world in which your "store of value" is subject to constant scrutiny by a bureaucratic monstrosity, and there is no way to hide from it by using private trade as a backstop. Imagine a world in which you cannot hold your money in your hand, and access to your money can be denied with the push of a button if you step out of line. This is what the globalists really desire.

Some people might claim that this kind of system already exists, but they would be fooling themselves. Even though fiat currencies like the dollar are a cancer on free markets and true production, they still offer privacy to a point, and they can still be physically allocated and held in your hand making them harder to confiscate. The globalists want to take a bad thing and make it even worse.

So, the question arises: How do they plan to make the shift from the current fiat paper system to their "new world order" economy?

First and foremost, they will seek a controlled demolition of the dollar as the world reserve currency. They have done this in the past with other reserve currencies, such as the Pound Sterling, which was carefully diminished over a period of two decades just after WWII through the use of treasury bond dumps by France and the U.S., as well as the forced removal of the sterling as the petro-currency.
This was done to make way for the U.S. dollar as a replacement after the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944.

The dollar did not achieve true world reserve status until after the gold standard was completely abandoned by Nixon in the early 1970s, at which point a deal was struck with Saudi Arabia making the dollar the petro-currency. Once the dollar was no longer anchored to gold and the world's energy market was made dependent on it, the fate of the U.S. economy was sealed.

Unlike Britain and the sterling, the U.S. economy is hyper-dependent on the dollar's world reserve status. While Britain suffered declining conditions for decades after the loss including inflation and high interest rates, the U.S. will experience far more acute pain. A complete lack of adequate production capability within U.S. borders has turned our nation into a consumer-based society, rather than a society of producers. Meaning, we are dependent on the demand for our currency as a reserve in order to enjoy affordable goods from other manufacturing-based countries.

Add to this lack of production ability the fact that for the past decade the Federal Reserve has been pumping trillions of dollars into financial markets around the globe. This means trillions of dollars held overseas only on the promise that those dollars will be accepted by major exporters as a universal store of value. If faith in that promise is lost, those trillions could come flooding back into the U.S. through various channels, and the buying power of the currency would crumble.

There is a delusion within the American mainstream that even if such an event were to occur, the transition could be handled with ease. It's fantastical, I know, but never underestimate the cognitive dissonance of people blinded by bias.

The rebuilding of a production base within the U.S. to offset the crisis of losing the world reserve currency would take many years; perhaps decades. And this is in the best-case scenario. With a plummeting currency and extreme price inflation, the cost of establishing new production on a large scale would be immense. While labor might become cheap (in comparison with inflation), all other elements of the economy would become very expensive.

In the worst-case scenario there would be complete societal breakdown likely followed by an attempted totalitarian response by government. In which case, forget any domestically funded economic recovery. Any future recovery would have to be funded and managed from outside the U.S. And here is where we see the globalist plan taking shape.

The banking elites have hinted in the past how they might try to "reset" the global economy. As I've mentioned in many articles, the globalist run magazine The Economist in 1988 discussed the removal of the dollar to make way for a global currency, a currency which would be introduced to the masses by 2018. This introduction did in fact take place as The Economist declared it would.

Here is how I believe the process will unfold:

The 2008 crash in credit and housing markets led to unprecedented money printing by central banks, with the Federal Reserve leading the pack as the greatest source of inflation. This program of bailouts and QE stimulus conjured and even bigger bubble, which many alternative analysts have dubbed "the everything bubble."

The growing "everything bubble" encompasses not just stock markets or housing, but auto markets, credit markets, bond markets and the dollar itself. All of these elements are now tied directly to Fed policy. The U.S. economy itself is not only addicted to stimulus measures and near-zero interest rates; it will die without them.

The Fed knows this well. Chairman Jerome Powell hinted at the crisis that would evolve if the Fed ever cut off stimulus, unwound its balance sheet and hiked rates in the October 2012 Fed minutes.
Without constant and ever-expanding stimulus measures, the false economy will implode. We are already seeing the effects as the Fed cuts tens-of-billions per month in assets from its balance sheet and hikes interest rates to their "neutral rate of inflation." Auto markets, housing markets, and credit markets are in reversal, and stocks are witnessing the most instability since the 2008 crash. All of this was triggered by the Fed simply exerting incremental rate hikes and balance sheet cuts.

The Fed will continue tightening, either by rate hikes, asset cuts, or both at the same time. The Fed's purpose is to create a crisis. The Fed's goal is to cause a crash. The Fed is a suicide bomber that does not care what happens to the U.S. system.

But what about the dollar, specifically?

The Fed's tightening policies do not only translate to crisis for US stocks or other markets, though. I see three primary ways in which the dollar can be dethroned as the world reserve.
  1. Emerging economies have also become addicted to Fed liquidity over the past 10 years. Without continued access to the Fed's easy money, nations like China and India beginning to seek out alternatives to the dollar as a world reserve. Contrary to the popular belief that these countries would "never" be able to decouple from the U.S., the process has already begun. And it is the Fed that has actually created the necessity for emerging markets to seek out other sources of liquidity besides the dollar.

  2. Donald Trump's trade war is yet another cover event for the loss of reserve status. If the trade war continues through the next year, it is only a matter of time before China, already seeking dollar alternatives as the Fed tightens liquidity, will start using its US treasury and dollar holding as leverage against us. Bilateral agreements between multiple nations that cut out the dollar are being established regularly today. If China, the largest exporter/importer in the world, stops accepting the dollar as the world reserve, or if they start accepting other currencies in competition, then numerous other nations will follow their lead.

  3. Finally, if the war of words between Trump and the Fed becomes something more and Trump undermines faith in U.S. credit, or if he shuts down the Fed entirely, the globalists are handed yet another perfect distraction for the death of the dollar. I can see the headlines now - The "reset" could then be painted as a "rescue" of the global economy after the "destructive actions of populists" who "bumbled into fiscal destruction" because they were blinded by an "obsession with sovereignty" in a world that "requires centralization to survive."
The specifics of the shift to a global currency are less clear, but again, we have hints from the globalists. The Economist suggests that the U.S. economy will have to be taken down a few pegs, and that the IMF would step in as the arbiter of forex markets through its SDR basket system. This plan was echoed recently by globalist Mohamed El-Erian in an article he wrote titled "New Life For The SDR?"

El-Erian also suggests that a global currency would help to combat the "rise of populism." The Economist notes that the SDR would only act as a "bridge" to the new global currency. Paper currencies would still exist for a time, but they would be pegged to the SDR exchange rates. Currently, the dollar is only worth around .71 SDRs. In the event of the loss of world reserve status, expect this exchange rate to drop significantly.

As the global crisis deepens the IMF will suggest a "reset" to a more manageable monetary framework, and this framework will be based on blockchain technology and a cryptocurrency which the IMF has likely already developed. The IMF hints at this outcome in at least two separate white papers recently published which herald a new age in which crypto is the next phase of evolution for global trade.

Without ample resistance, the introduction of the cashless society will be presented as a natural and even "heroic" response by the globalists to save humanity from the "selfishness" of destructive nationalists. They will strut across the world stage as if they are saviors, rather than the villains they really are.

Globalist disinformation spotlight on — Mohamed El-Erian

(By Brandon Smith, but not yet published at Bob Livingston's Personal Liberty site).

In this new series of "Spotlight" articles which I will be publishing intermittently I plan to highlight specific individuals who work within globalist institutions or who often express pro-globalist sentiments. More to the point, I will be dismantling propaganda coming directly from the mouths of globalists. I often hear people make the argument that alternative analysts should be "naming the enemy" more often in our work. Of course, if we chased that goal every time each article would be longer than a book.

I often suggest to those wanting to know who the globalists are that they simply identify people who explicitly promote globalism. It's not as if the elitists are invisible. They are generally narcissists, and narcissists have big mouths. They are always looking for attention — it's one of their greatest weaknesses because it makes them easily identifiable.

But what is "globalism?" Well, it is a combination of ideological elements. First and foremost, they believe in total centralization of power. This means the eventual erasure of all national borders, all economic divisions, all cultural distinctions. They want a one world system, with a single economic authority, a single currency and a single global government.

This system is sometimes presented as a kind of "Utopia," in which war would be a thing of the past and poverty will be eradicated.  The cost of such trade is never mentioned, though. The complete extermination of individuality, personal choice, free thought and self-sufficiency is the price of the globalist contract with the devil.

Globalists also tend to support programs which openly or indirectly favor population control. This includes programs posing as environmentally conscious. The climate change and carbon taxation schemes in particular are designed to reduce access to energy, making production expansion impossible thereby shrinking the means to support the current or larger population.

Political puppets of the globalist agenda are not always obvious outright. They may at times even attack globalism and pretend to fight for nationalism or against climate change. We call these politicians "controlled opposition."

The easiest way to determine if a politician is controlled is to identify the people they surround themselves with. Who do they associate with? Who is "advising" them? If they are surrounded by known globalists and banking elites on a regular basis, then they are a puppet, either knowingly or unknowingly. Their actions will only ever serve globalist interests, and when their careers are over, it will be clear that their pro-sovereignty rhetoric sounded good while they were in office, but every policy they asserted pushed globalism forward or made anti-globalists appear absurd and dangerous.

There are also many who argue in favor of globalism without really knowing the evil that it entails. We call these people "useful idiots." These rubes are usually suckered into the fold by particular brands of propaganda. Some propaganda appeals to people's sense of superiority or vanity; suggesting that they are far more brilliant than the majority and thus more valuable to society.

Other propaganda plays on people's fear of standing outside the "mainstream." It seeks to create the illusion of consensus (global warming propaganda does this often), in which people are convinced that "everyone knows" that a particular lie is actually a universal truth. The facts might suggest otherwise, but false consensus is designed to make people feel afraid to express their doubts about mainstream viewpoints. They are afraid to be chastised by friends, family or the public at large. And so, they keep their mouths shut, never realizing that many millions of other people might share their doubts and that they are not an isolated minority.

Propaganda relies on calculated disinformation. Usually globalists use other people for this task. They exploit the controlled media, or they exploit controlled opposition, or they use anonymous disinformation agents to attack anyone that has the courage to present the truth publicly. But as stated earlier, most of them are narcissistic and cannot keep themselves away from the spotlight.

In this week's article I will be focusing on Mohamed El-Erian, who has been very active in the media the past month. Some of my reader may recognize the name — El Erian has been an active promoter of a global currency system based on the IMF's SDR basket system. He suggests that a global currency might be an effective way to combat the "dangers" of "populist nationalism."

El Erian is an Egyptian-born economic adviser to Allianz, the parent company of PIMCO, one of the largest investment firms in the world. Many Federal Reserve officials work within PIMCO before or after their time at the central bank, including former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke and Alan Greenspan. El Erian served as chair on Barack Obama's "Global Development Council" and worked as deputy director of the IMF in the 1980s.

With this kind of background, it should come as no surprise that El Erian spreads disinformation in favor of the globalist agenda.

Recently, El Erian penned an op-ed for Bloomberg news, in which he presented a number of fallacies on the state of the economy. Let's look at some of the most important pieces of disinformation.

El Erian argues that there will be no Recession

First, let's be clear — the U.S. and most of the world has been in a state of recession/depression ever since the crash of 2008. If your economy must be artificially supported by central bank fiat printing for 10 years just to keep the system from plunging into chaos, then your economy is in steep and permanent decline. Hiding it with central bank stimulus measures might hide recession status in a technical way, but fundamentally negative growth is always threat if the life support plug is pulled.

This is exactly what is happening today as the Fed tightens policy and removes liquidity from the economy. Currently we are seeing a steep drop in housing markets, auto markets, credit markets and stock markets are on the verge of entering bear market territory. All of this began after the Fed started raising interest rates and cutting its balance sheet. It should be obvious to anyone with sense that the economy is crashing, and it is crashing because of the Fed.

El Erian knows he is telling a lie, which is why he covers himself by noting that though we "will not suffer a recession," we will see a "slowdown unless we build pro-growth policies."

Why would globalists like El Erian lie about the real threat to our economic system? For one, they are the culprits behind the crash in 2008, they created the subsequent "everything bubble," and now they are deliberately popping that bubble to cause another crisis. It behooves them to hide instability until they are ready to blame it on a predetermined scapegoat. I have also found in my studies that it is very common for globalists and their media partners to attempt to keep the public as oblivious as possible before every crash.

I suspect this accomplished two things: One, it means that the public will be caught completely off-guard and unprepared for the crisis. Two, it fools the investment community into keeping their capital within the system when they should be liquidating their holdings and running for the hills. Before every market crash including the Great Depression there was a chorus of elitists and media puppets telling people they would be "fools" if they pulled their money out.

As the banking cabal and the globalists sell their holdings and position for the crash, they need greater fools to buy. Retail investors and day traders usually end up being the greater fools.

El Erian defends central banks

The former IMF official laments the idea that central banks might suffer more criticism over policy tightening and the consequences it might produce. El Erian instead blames turmoil in Washington including the government shutdown.

I have been warning for quite some time that Donald Trump has been providing the perfect distraction for the central banks as they remove stimulus support from the economy and deliberately initiate a controlled demolition of the financial bubble they created after 2008. I outlined Trump's status as controlled opposition in my recent article 'Trump Is A Pied Piper For The New World Order Agenda.'

El Erian's rhetoric added to Trump's consistent habit of taking credit for the stock market bubble supports my position. While Trump has criticized the Fed for raising interest rates and threatening the bull market in stocks, this comes off as the ranting of a manchild when Trump also claims he is the reason for the stock rally for the past two years, and that his own trade war triggered the "glitch" which has brought equities down the past month.

Ultimately, Trump's trade war and the government shutdown are already being used by globalists as cover for their activities. El Erian is just one of many elitists spreading the lie that Trump is causing a crash, rather than the central banks.

In the meantime, El Erian warns that 1,000-point swings in the Dow will become commonplace — which is the only truthful comment in his op-ed. However, he acts as though this should not be a concern, as if such volatility is normal.

El Erian says the economy will remain strong

Globalists often use faulty statistics as a means to misrepresent the true health of the economy. Unemployment numbers are a favorite tool. Though the official stats show unemployment percentages at all-time lows, the Bureau of Labor Statistics chooses to leave out certain important details, such as the fact that around 96 million people are not counted as unemployed because they have been jobless for so long they aren't on the rolls anymore. The BLS also counts underemployed people with minimum hours as if they are fully employed workers.

Sure, the unemployment rate continues to go down, because more and more people are being removed from the rolls, and more and more people are settling for low wage part time service jobs because these are the only jobs available.

Another stat globalists like to use is GDP. The official GDP number is a farce built on numerous fallacies. The most prominent tactic for juicing GDP is calculating in government expenditures as if they are production. Meaning, the government steals your money through taxation, preventing you from using it to produce, and then uses it on wasteful government programs which are then counted as part of GDP. This even includes such programs as Obamacare.

GDP also does not consider true inflation. Yes, American consumer spend an increasing amount of their income each year, but this is not because they are more affluent than the year before. It is because most goods and services cost more due to inflation.

GDP does not represent legitimate production or the health of the economy, and neither do labor statistics. El Erian is doing what all globalists do, which is misinform the public as much as possible up to a crash of the system. The more fear and uncertainty the public feels during a crisis the more malleable they become and the more power the globalists can take for themselves in the process.

As this series continues, you will find that globalists like El Erian are all pushing a similar narrative in concert with each other, indicating a cohesive conspiracy, not random coincidence.

LOCK HER UP FOR TREASON! Gen. Flynn Targeted For Knowing Hillary Made Millions Running Guns to Al-Quaeda From Benghazi

From here and here:

American Definition of Treason: "Aiding and Abetting the Enemy in a Time of War."

Former Law Enforcement Official: Benghazi Coverup Was To Protect Clinton Foundation – General Flynn Attacked Because He Knew Too Much

(Gateway Pundit) – A former Law Enforcement Officer named Roscoe B. Davis unveiled a number or tweets over the weekend tying the attack in Benghazi to the Clinton Foundation. The foundation reportedly made millions gun running and General Flynn was allegedly attacked because he knew too much.

The tweets are as follows and start with information about the Taliban having US Stinger missiles:

The Taliban had obtained the stinger missiles that Hillary and McCain had hoped to go to Libya –

McCain’s contact by the name of Marc Turi sold billions to the US in weapons and was involved in the Obama plan to give guns to Al-Qaeda to get them to overthrow Qaddafi:

Charges against Turi were dropped in Obama’s last days in office. He knew the US was running the arms through Libya but the CIA surprisingly was not supportive of this:

Hillary was the one who was for the arms sales to Libya and she was out to make millions on the deal –

Hillary put Stephens in Benghazi to clean up her mess after it was discovered that Al-Qaeda terrorists were obtaining the US arms. When he was murdered Hillary and Obama had to create a cover up story:

The story in Benghazi was why Stephens was even there:

Stephens was in Benghazi allegedly working for the Clinton Foundation:

The US was attacked in Benghazi which was bad because Hillary wanted to keep the operation there low key:

Americans knew from the beginning it was a terrorist attack — because it was!

It took the FBI 23 days to get to Benghazi and investigate:

Hillary tried to tie the attack to Turi but WikiLeaks released emails (which we wrote about at TGP at the time) showing Hillary’s plans and ties to Al-Qaeda –

Hillary then lied in front of Congress about the guns running in Benghazi –

General Flynn knew the truth behind the entire situation:

Obama got rid of General Flynn and even encouraged President-elect Trump not to hire General Flynn – he knew too much!

Hillary didn’t care about any deaths or guns to American enemies – she was making millions on the deal.

It’s time that Hillary and Obama are brought to justice.

If President Trump does not bring to justice the people in the Deep State responsible for selling guns to our enemies and lying about it and the fate of four Americans, he will have a difficult time being re-elected!

Americans want the swamp drained and Hillary locked up!

UN admits 'refugees' are 'replacement migration' for Europe and other low-fertility countries

From here:

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 14:32:44 +0000
For those of us who’ve long suspected there’s a hidden agenda behind the invasion of “refugees” and “migrants” in Europe, here’s the smoking gun.
In 2000, the United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs issued a report, Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?, which proposes “replacement migration” for countries with an aging and declining population.
Below is the UN’s press release on the report, dated March 17, 2000 — that’s how long ago the “refugee” and “migrant” plan was hatched.
Press Release
NEW YORK, 17 March (DESA) — The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) has released a new report titled “Replacement Migration: Is it a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?”. Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to prevent population decline and population ageingresulting from low fertility and mortality rates.
United Nations projections indicate that between 1995 and 2050, the population of Japan and virtually all countries of Europe will most likely decline. In a number of cases, including Estonia, Bulgaria and Italy, countries would lose between one quarter and one third of their population. Population ageing will be pervasive, bringing the median age of population to historically unprecedented high levels. For instance, in Italy, the median age will rise from 41 years in 2000 to 53 years in 2050. The potential support ratio — i.e., the number of persons of working age (15-64 years) per older person — will often be halved, from 4 or 5 to 2.
Focusing on these two striking and critical trends, the report examines in detail the case of eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). In each case, alternative scenarios for the period 1995-2050 are considered, highlighting the impact that various levels of immigration would have on population size and population ageing.
Major findings of this report include:
— In the next 50 years, the populations of most developed countries are projected to become smaller and older as a result of low fertility and increased longevity. In contrast, the population of the United States is projected to increase by almost a quarter. Among the countries studied in the report, Italy is projected to register the largest population decline in relative terms, losing 28 per cent of its population between 1995 and 2050, according to the United Nations medium variant projections. The population of the European Union, which in 1995 was larger than that of the United States by 105 million, in 2050, will become smaller by 18 million.
— Population decline is inevitable in the absence of replacement migration. Fertility may rebound in the coming decades, but few believe that it will recover sufficiently in most countries to reach replacement level in the foreseeable future.
— Some immigration is needed to prevent population decline in all countries and regions examined in the report. However, the level of immigration in relation to past experience varies greatly. For the European Union, a continuation of the immigration levels observed in the 1990s would roughly suffice to prevent total population from declining, while for Europe as a whole, immigration would need to double. The Republic of Korea would need a relatively modest net inflow of migrants — a major change, however, for a country which has been a net sender until now. Italy and Japan would need to register notable increases in net immigration. In contrast, France, the United Kingdom and the United States would be able to maintain their total population with fewer immigrants than observed in recent years.
— The numbers of immigrants needed to prevent the decline of the total population are considerably larger than those envisioned by the United Nations projections. The only exception is the United States.
— The numbers of immigrants needed to prevent declines in the working-age population are larger than those needed to prevent declines in total population. In some cases, such as the Republic of Korea, France, the United Kingdom or the United States, they are several times larger. If such flows were to occur, post-1995 immigrants and their descendants would represent a strikingly large share of the total population in 2050 — between 30 and 39 per cent in the case of Japan, Germany and Italy.
— Relative to their population size, Italy and Germany would need the largest number of migrants to maintain the size of their working-age populations. Italy would require 6,500 migrants per million inhabitants annually and Germany, 6,000. The United States would require the smallest number — 1,300 migrants per million inhabitants per year.
— The levels of migration needed to prevent population ageing are many times larger than the migration streams needed to prevent population decline. Maintaining potential support ratios would in all cases entail volumes of immigration entirely out of line with both past experience and reasonable expectations.
— In the absence of immigration, the potential support ratios could be maintained at current levels by increasing the upper limit of the working-age population to roughly 75 years of age.
— The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require a comprehensive reassessment of many established policies and programmes, with a long-term perspective. Critical issues that need to be addressed include: (a) the appropriate ages for retirement; (b) the levels, types and nature of retirement and health care benefits for the elderly; (c) labour force participation; (d) the assessed amounts of contributions from workers and employers to support retirement and health care benefits for the elderly population; and (e) policies and programmes relating to international migration, in particular, replacement migration and the integration of large numbers of recent migrants and their descendants.
Note that, unlike Europe and other developed countries, the United States is a lone exception. Instead of population decline and ageing, our population is projected to increase by a quarter in the next 50 years.
That means America does not need to open our doors to immigrants, migrants and refugees. In fact, the UN report concludes that we only need to bring in 1,300 migrants per million inhabitants per year.
The U.S. population in 2018 is 327.16 million. That means that, at most, we need to bring in less than half a million (425,000) migrants a year — if even that.

Trump is a pied piper for the new world order agenda - Brandon Smith

As-yet-unpublished at Personal Liberty

Confidence games are highly varied affairs. They can be extremely simple and often obvious to everyone but the most inept and unobservant, or, they can be highly complex with many moving parts of deceit combined into a single elaborate con-machine. It is important to understand that confidence games are not just a means to steal money or valuables from unwitting people; they are also a vital part of economic manipulation, government dominance, and warfare in general. Almost all mainstream economic "authorities," politicians, military tacticians and covert operatives are con men in one way or another.

With the exception of military tacticians acting in defense against an aggressor, con men are predominantly sociopaths. In order to carry out a "grift" against innocent people, an extreme lack of empathy is required. Understanding the mind and motivations of sociopaths and narcissistic sociopaths makes it possible to identify them faster and allows us to see their con games ahead of time.

In terms of social control, elitist con men are highly preoccupied with preventing spontaneous organization of rebellion. But this does not always involve the outright crushing of dissent. Instead, the elites prefer to use co-option and misdirection (con games) to lure rebellious movements to focus on the wrong enemy, or to trust the wrong leadership.

I am often reminded of the infiltration of the Tea Party movement by neo-conservatives in the years after the 2008 election. Neo-con men exploited the desire among Tea Party activists for mainstream legitimacy and more widespread media coverage. They gave them what they wanted, by injecting their own political puppets into the movement. It did not take long for the Tea Party to abandon its initial roots in individual sovereignty and the Ron Paul campaign and adopt a decidedly statist tone.

The smart people left the movement early and went on to launch their own efforts, but the goal of the establishment had been accomplished — the grass roots threat of the Tea Party was no more.

That said, the principles of conservative economics, small government and personal liberty remain entrenched in the American psyche and continue to grow. These ideals have a life of their own, and almost seem to act autonomously at times from any particular group or leader.

The single most important dynamo behind the rise of sovereignty activism has actually been the liberty media, or what some might call the "alternative media." This group of people has been working tirelessly for years to inform the masses on the real news and statistics behind global events. Over time we have earned the trust of millions based on honest reporting and accurate predictions. It was only a matter of time before the establishment attempted to co-opt us as well...

The downfall of the Tea Party was a lack of cohesive leadership. There was no one there to put a stop to the neo-con infiltration. There was no one in a strong enough position to vet incoming influencers and prevent poison pills from entering the bloodstream of the movement. The problem with leadership, though, is that it denotes centralization and a bottlenecking of decisions and action. It's quite a quandary for advocates of decentralization.

The most effective method for the establishment to sabotage a rebellion is to place one of their own puppets into a leadership position in that rebellion. This exploits the movement's subconscious appetite for top down leadership. It neutralizes activists by tricking them into waiting for order from on high instead of acting on their own individually. It makes a movement lazy and impotent.

The con game of false leadership goes beyond this, though. A charismatic puppet leader can trick activists into following a path completely opposite of their foundational ideals. He can turn the movement into something they would have originally despised (like turning a limited government pro-sovereignty movement into a big government pro-state cult). He can also take actions which are self-destructive, thereby making the movement appear insane or foolhardy by proxy.

I warned of this potential dynamic with Donald Trump long before the 2016 election. In fact, I predicted that Donald Trump would win the election based on the premise that the globalists were planning a grand con; to not only use Trump as a scapegoat for the crash of the "everything bubble" they had been inflating for the past 10 years, but to also use him as a pied piper to lure conservative movements into individual inaction, as well as being named as co-conspirators in the economic collapse that Trump was about to be involved in.

In my article 'Clinton vs. Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement,' published in September 2016, I noted:

"To summarize, the elites need a patsy for the breakdown of the financial system they have engineered. That patsy will not be Trump per se, but conservatives in general. Whether Donald Trump is aware of this program or not, I do not know. I have no hard evidence indicating that Trump is anti-constitution; then again, I don’t have much evidence indicating he is pro-constitution. All I have at present to go by is his rhetoric, and rhetoric counts for nothing.
What I do know is that triggering a fiscal crisis under the watch of Trump and blaming conservatives is far more useful to the elites than triggering a crisis under Clinton and risk blame falling on international banking syndicates."

The crash has now begun in the final quarter of 2018, with housing markets, auto markets and credit markets in steep decline, as well as stock markets trending into bear territory. In the same article I also stated:

"I believe Clinton is meant to lose. If this is the case and Trump is inaugurated in January of next year, the liberty movement needs to ask itself if Trump is truly an obstacle for the elites, or if he is an ally to the elites.

The Left is already salivating over the possibility that the Trump campaign will devour the liberty movement and turn it into something unrecognizable. Just take a gander at this editorial from Bloomberg called 'The Tea Party Meets Its Maker,' which announces the death of the "Tea Party" at the hands of Trump..."

After two years of witnessing Trump in action, it is clear to me that he is an active participant in the new world order agenda, and not just an unwitting patsy for the economic crisis.

Trump started out his presidential campaign with two very important issues. First, he argued for the need to "drain the swamp" in Washington D.C.; which included a sharp criticism of Hillary Clinton's ties to banking elites and globalists. Second, he criticized the fraudulent state of the U.S. economy, pointing out that the stock market was in a massive bubble created by the Federal Reserve using near zero interest rates.

Trump's first action upon entering the White House was to invite multiple "swamp creatures" into his cabinet, going against his core campaign promise. This was not all that surprising considering his past.

Trump was saved in the 1990s by Rothchild banking agent Wilber Ross, who bailed him out of his debts tied up in his failing Taj Mahal casino. Wilber Ross is now Trump's commerce secretary. I ask, who is Trump going to be loyal to? The American people, who can offer him nothing of consequence, or the Rothschilds, who saved his public image and his billion-dollar empire?

Trump is also currently "advised" by the likes of Steven Mnuchin formerly of Goldman Sachs, Larry Kudlow formerly of the New York Fed, and John Bolton of the CFR, among others.

Trump also flip-flopped on his economic position. Instead of warning about the huge financial bubble the Fed had created, he adopted a Twitter campaign taking credit for the bubble for the past two years. As the stock rally crumbled the past few months, the script that Trump would follow was also rather predictable.

In my article 'In A Battle Between Trump And The Fed, Who Really Wins,' published in February 2017, I reminded readers that the goal of the Fed is a controlled demolition of the U.S. economy and the dollar to open the door for the "global reset." The reset is the event that the globalists hope will allow them to introduce a single global currency system and single world economy with the IMF and perhaps the BIS at the helm.

In my article 'Trump vs. The Fed: America Sacrificed At The NWO Altar,' I outlined the details of the con game. The globalists want to sacrifice the Fed and the dollar to make way for their new world order system, but they cannot do this in a vacuum. They need a distraction. Trump's "battle with the fed" will likely escalate into a full-blown war. But Trump's position against the Fed is not honorable.
According to the narrative, Trump is not going after the Fed because it has created the everything bubble and is now deliberately imploding it. Trump is going after the Fed because he wants the Fed to make the everything bubble even bigger by continuing to prop up a stock rally that Trump has attached to the success of his presidency. Trump will be painted as a spoiled baby in the mainstream, throwing a tantrum and attacking the "innocent" central bankers who were only trying to "normalize markets."

In the meantime, the globalists can slowly kill the world reserve status of the dollar while avoiding the blame for the severe economic consequences this will produce. A conflict between the White House and the central bank will be presented as a sign that faith in U.S. debt and the longevity of the dollar is a bad bet. Foreign holders of dollar and T-bills, already quietly dumping these assets, will accelerate the decoupling. Trump's trade war activities add to the distraction, creating a brilliant theater in which conservatives are conned into supporting a puppet leader on the verge of collapse, and confirming the crazed arguments against conservative principles in the minds of globalists and leftists.

The con game is to get liberty advocates to invest themselves fully in Trump, to the point that we end up owning every mistake he makes, and every disaster that is pinned on him. There is a concerted propaganda campaign targeting the liberty movement which is telling us that Trump is playing "4D Chess"; that Trump is planning a "coup" against the banking elites, that Trump is planning to bring down the Fed as a means to save the U.S., and even that Trump is working with Jerome Powell to crash the globalist system as a means to "restore the Republic."

There is no evidence to support any of this. And, considerable evidence as I have linked above supporting my position that Trump is controlled opposition working with the globalists to initiate a collapse that will be blamed on conservatives and limited government liberty activists. We shall see in due course. It is unfortunate though how many otherwise very intelligent people within the liberty movement have bought into Trump as a hero on a white horse.

The activists and alternative media are the real heroes. They are the people that forced liberty philosophy into the mainstream. Trump merely rode the wave that they created. Even if he was a legitimate conservative and constitutionalist (which he is not), the movement doesn't need his leadership. It never did. The globalists know this and hope to chain us to Trump as he sinks into historical oblivion, destroying us all in the process.

To truth and knowledge,

Angela Merkel: Nation States Must ‘Give Up Sovereignty’ To New World Order

From here:

Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.

No this wasn’t something Adolf Hitler said many decades ago, this is what German Chancellor Angela Merkel told attendants at an event by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin. Merkel has announced she won’t seek re-election in 2021 and it is clear she is attempting to push the globalist agenda to its disturbing conclusion before she stands down.

In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel joked, attempting to lighten the mood. But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech condemning those in her own party who think Germany should have listened to the will of its citizens and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact:

There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.

[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed.

Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.
Angela Merkel as Chancellor of Germany has embraced globalist ideology by opening the nations borders, accepting millions of migrants.

‘One world government’

Her words echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”

The French president’s words were deeply unpopular with the French population and his approval rating nosedived even further after the comments.

Macron, whose lack of leadership is proving unable to deal with growing protests in France, told the Bundestag that France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.
The Franco-German couple [has]the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace”.

Europe must be stronger… and win more sovereignty,” he went on to demand, just like Merkel, that EU member states surrender national sovereignty to Brussels over “foreign affairs, migration, and development” as well as giving “an increasing part of our budgets and even fiscal resources”.

YAY SLOVAKS! Muslims Butthurt as Slovakians BAN ISLAM!

From here:

The ongoing and increasing effort to criminalise Islam throughout Europe, a continent that prides itself on being a bastion of liberal and pluralistic values, operates under many guises and covert methods, all of which have a singular purpose: To make life as difficult for Muslims as lawfully possible.

European parliaments are legalising Islamophobia at breakneck speeds, with European citizens becoming increasingly fixated on what Muslims can and cannot wear in public.

Consider that France became the first to ban the Islamic face veil in 2011, but since then only six of the 28 EU countries haven't considered banning headscarves and face veils, those six being Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Poland, Portugal and Romania.


Countries that have passed general national laws that criminalise wearing the face veil include France, Belgium, Bulgaria, and Austria, while Denmark and Spain have enacted bans in specific public settings or sectors, according to a recent report by Open Society Foundation.

All of this is taking place as far-right political parties and movements spread throughout Europe at rate alarmingly similar to the Nazi military in the late 1930s to early 1940s.
Moreover, some European states are going even further than France, Belgium, Denmark and others in their respective efforts to stifle and repress the rights of Muslim minorities and expression of the Islamic faith.

Slovakia, for instance, recently passed a law that effectively outlaws Islam for the foreseeable future and/or forever.
Given Muslims represent only 0.4 percent of the population, Slovakia's anti-Islam law represents a solution to a problem that doesn't exist
The bill changed a pre-existing law that stated a religion must attain 20,000 followers (signatures) before it can be considered a state religion.

Without that legal status, a religion is deemed unlawful by the state, deeming it ineligible for government tax subsidies, while, at the same time, forbidding public houses of worship. The new law, however, doubled the threshold from 25,000 to 50,000 signatures.

Given Muslims represent only 0.4 percent of the population, Slovakia's anti-Islam law represents a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, but Slovak politicians haven't tried to conceal their motive behind this bill. In fact, they have publicly stated it's intended to outlaw all aspects of Muslim life in the country forever.

"Islamisation starts with a kebab and it's already under way in Bratislava, let's realise what we will face in five to 10 years," said Slovak National Party (SNP) chairman Andrej Danko in an interview with Reuters. "We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in the future."

As it stands, there are roughly 5,000 Muslims in Slovakia, but not a single mosque. This law restricts the day-to-day life of Slovak Muslims in very harmful and repressive ways. Not only are they denied basic rights regarding freedom of speech and expression, but also they can't have religious leaders, perform Islamic marriages, nor can they receive funding or assistance from the government, unlike the members of 18 other registered religions in the country.
"As Muslims, we do really need to be recognised and to have a feeling that we are well accepted and well integrated by the government, by the society. We as Muslims, we are citizens. We have, beside our duties, also some rights," said Mohamad Safwan Hasna, chairman of Islamic Foundation Slovakia, in a recent interview with TRT World.
Moreover, failing to recognise Islam as a religion means schools are not allowed to teach their students about the religious faith and/or the contributions Muslims have made towards technology, medicine, philosophy and the natural sciences, which also denies students being knowledgeable about the historical presence of Muslims in Slovakia.

"There is no mention of the contribution of Arabic travel books to the reconstruction of the history of Central and Eastern Europe in the early middle Ages," observes Jozef Lenc and Monika Zavis, Slovakian authors of a recent report into Islamophobia in Slovakia.

"In Slovakia, we do not even teach anything about the Muslim communities of early Hungary (for example, around Nitra) or the contributions of the Tatars, who settled in the territory of today's Poland, Lithuania and Belarus, to the Polish army and society."
This climate of anti-Muslim animus is urging Slovak politicians to expand the 2017 bill by more than quadrupling the number of signatures required to attain status as a legal religion
This, according to Lenc and Zavis, is creating the intellectual space for Islamophobia to thrive and proliferate, which also creates space for political entrepreneurs, particularly on the right, to exploit and mobilise a political base.

For instance, a prominent Member of Parliament, Stanislav Mizik, recently stated, "Every normal European, Christian or atheist, has to fear this satanic-paedophile creation of the devil, which is the religion of Islam."

Of course, like everywhere else, seemingly, Slovak media also helps perpetuate negative stereotypes about Muslims and disinformation about Islam, and in particular has further fueled ill feeling towards the country's tiny Muslim minority.

"Most often Islam is associated with terrorism - in fact all Slovak media use the word 'jihad' as a synonym for 'terrorism,' and 'jihadists' as a synonym for 'terrorists.' This creates a societal image that all Muslims who act as jihadists are terrorists, and that terrorism in the form of jihad is a part of Islam," observe Lenc and Zavis.

This climate of anti-Muslim animus is urging Slovak politicians to expand the 2017 bill by more than quadrupling the number of signatures required to attain status as a legal religion, but even more concerning is the fact that hate crimes against Muslims in Slovakia are on the rise, like pretty much everywhere else across the continent.
They are creating the intellectual space for Islamophobia to thrive and proliferate
At the heart of these European anti-Muslim laws is the fear of terrorism, with right-wing politicians foolishly and dangerously espousing the misguided notion that being tough on Muslims will defeat "Islamic" terrorism, despite the fact that counterterrorism academics and practitioners contend the exact opposite - that social cohesion, pluralism, equality and inclusion are the enemies of violent extremism.

Slovakia, unfortunately, is yet another example of a modern European state falling victim to the worse impulses and imaginary of fears of a more virulent and threatening far-right.
