This guy says that a $30 trillion debt isn’t REALLY $30 trillion, it’s more like $22 trillion, and that isn’t really that much. Besides, a large national debt isn’t really a problem.
I know that many of us talk about how the government seems to be protecting criminals. In New York, that has become quite literally what is happening. The city has established the country’s first “overdose prevention center” where medical professionals oversee and assist people in administering illegal drugs to themselves.
The people behind it say- and I’m not kidding- that this is based upon science. They are saving lives, don’t you know.
I wonder what science will discover next. Perhaps they will declare that the police need to escort thieves into your home, so that thieves don’t have to risk working and stealing in an unsafe environment. Think of the lives they will save.
Tyranny in Canada
For two years, we have been watching as people the left have been calling “peaceful protesters” killed people, burned down cities, and took over city blocks at gunpoint.
Then the left began to say that anyone who refused to follow mask and vaccine mandates deserves whatever they get in the form of violent physical attacks.
Some Canadian truckers decided to protest by parking trucks in Quebec and honking their horns. That, to the left, is violence that goes too far.
Now the cops are threatening the arrest of anyone who brings food, water, fuel, or any other supplies to the protesters. The blockade was supposed to begin at midnight, but the cops aren’t waiting.
My advice to the truckers: Do what the left has been doing. Wait for the cops to commit violent acts. Make sure a dozen people stream video of the event out on the Internet. Make them famous for beating up an old woman who is handing out sandwiches to hungry protesters.
Right now, it is the court of public opinion that matters. We need as many undecideds, as many soccer moms as possible to see the communists for what they are. Make THEM look like the crazy paranoid nutjobs.
Right now, this is about winning the PR battle. If we can get Suzie Soccermom on board, we win and they lose. If we can get a million trucks to simply stop delivering, they will HAVE to cave. The country will descend into chaos within 48 hours of no food deliveries.
Make it so no one gets food if the protesters in Quebec don’t get food.
It’s been a month since we last looked at inflation here at Sector 8.
The government has been creating too many dollars. In December of 2020, one third of all dollars that had ever existed had been printed in the past ten months.
It appears as though the Federal government was just getting started. Six months later in May 2021, it was said that 40% of every dollar that has ever existed was created in the preceding 12 months.
Another 5 months later, that had increased to 80 percent of all dollars that have ever existed were printed in the past 22 months.
This is a cycle that causes hyperinflation: Printing more money causes that money to become less valuable. To counter this, more money is printed, which causes it to become less valuable. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
In fact, the Fed printed an average of $27 billion per day in 2020 and put those dollars into circulation.
In 2021, the Fed increased that rate to nearly double that. Of course, most money today isn’t physically printed. It exists only in the electronic minds of computer systems. That’s because no one could physically print that many bank notes.
This out of control creation of money is warping the entire economy. Excluding food and energy, consumer expenses are up 4.9 percent from a year ago. This is the largest increase in 40 years.
According to a friend of mine who works in the banking industry, the Fed governors were recently polled on where they see the Federal funds rate going in the next 24 months. The average was 2 percent.
A two percent increase is a big deal. It also isn’t enough. The greatest impact that higher interest rates will have is on the largest borrower in the world — the United States government. The United States national debt is nearly 30 trillion dollars, which it finances through Treasury bills, notes and bonds. The public holds 80 percent of this debt, which requires direct interest payments, rather than ledger transfers on the Treasury books.
The fiscal year 2021 United States budget included over $562 billion spent paying interest on the federal debt. To put this into perspective, the cumulative net worth of the five wealthiest people in the US (Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Warren Buffet) was $465 billion. So, the interest paid on the debt in 2021 is more than these five people’s net worth COMBINED.
An increase in those interest rates will cost the government a lot of money. Money that they do not have. Any increase in interest rates will add hundreds of billions of dollars of interest to the federal budget. In fact, a one percent increase in interest rates means an extra $300 billion in interest on our national debt.
The only way for the government to pay the higher interest is- you guessed it- to print the money, which will cause the currency to be devalued, and worsen inflation, which will again cause higher interest rates. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
We are riding this sinking ship all the way to the bottom.
Anti American left
Antifa Intel Report
Several days ago, I posted about an active cell of Antifa operating in and around the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I have been doing some research and as much of a threat assessment of this as I can. I would have posted sooner on this, but I had several employees get COVID and have just worked a pair of 16 hour days covering their shifts. This is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and write this all out.
When the guy was caught, he had a checklist in his possession. The list itself shows that someone is training these guys to be good little insurgents. Read it for yourself, and you can see that they are being taught how to do this.
This also gives you an idea of the basic load carried by these guys. Note that they do not (yet) have firearms on the list, but as you will see below, many people in this group DO carry weapons as well as firearms.
Using this list and news articles on the arrestee, I was able to find quite a bit of information.
Here is the intel that I have on the cell he was operating with:
Command, Control, Communications
The particular unit he seems to have been affiliated with is the Florida Youth Liberation Front. The Front claims to have chapters in Oregon, Washington, California, Florida, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, New York, and Washington, DC, as well as in Canada. The Washington state version of the Front is known to have been around since 2018. The Florida chapter was formed in 2020.
They appear to be centrally controlled at the national level, and the different chapters coordinate their actions. The Portland chapter provides training for members of other chapters.
Their online presence is hosted by noblogs.org. This webpage is set up for insurgent groups. This platform caters to far-left causes, stating that it exists for the purpose of “connecting radical people.”
They use the crowdfunding platform GiveButter to collect donations. They use the messaging app Telegram to communicate, and include instructions on how to setup an anonymous account on their blog. Email is handled through riseup.net.
Their Twitter feed is not open to the public, but Twitter seems to have no problem allowing a group that advocates for violence, as long as that group is on the left.
One common theme I found on every site is the desire for the violent overthrow of government. I don’t understand how these guys’ meetings aren’t attended by a dozen cops. Every other criminal enterprise in the nation has been infiltrated to the point where they have more cops than real members, but these guys? This HAS to indicate some kind of government support. Reading the group’s website, and especially their “ezine” is fairly instructive.
The Front is broken down into smaller “affinity groups,” who operate at the local level. These groups participate in sabotage, vandalism, and other violent acts, which they call “direct actions.” This is a classic cell structure that has proven to be quite effective.
Other Antifa-affiliated groups claim they are not connected to YLF, but other left-wing extremist groups have shared the Front’s propaganda on social media, and YLF shares their propaganda and event announcements. The wording, images, and tactics are similar enough to indicate a common controlling entity at some level.
The Front explicitly discourages peaceful protest. In June 2020, the Front advised protesters that they “can never be peaceful” if it means complying with police demands. Journalist Andy Ngo says that the Front “openly advocate[s] for violent uprisings.” In his testimony to Congress in August 2020, he identified YLF as the organizers of riots in Portland and other cities during the summer of 2020.
Their members are known to frequently carry loaded firearms, as well as use destructive devices such as Molotov cocktails, as well as commercial fireworks, which they sometimes modify into antipersonnel IEDs by wrapping them in duct tape and nails.
The Front is known to have carried out several violent acts:
- They instructed rioters in Portland to target private property and called for “death to America.” CSP said that multiple store fronts and a Catholic church were vandalized in riot that followed the Front’s statements.
- The group took credit on Twitter for the firebombing of an Oregon police officer’s home in November of 2020. Twitter declared that the tweet did not violate their community standards against the glorification of violence.
The Front recently sued Andy Ngo for “stealing” their comments and photos. They dropped the suit when it was pointed out that Ngo was covered by “fair use.”
What is the threat?
It would be fairly easy to dismiss this group as a bunch of 20 something soyboy cucks who are cosplaying the revolutionary role while still living at home with mom and dad. That would be a mistake. While it is accurate that they are a bunch of man-children who still live at home and have no real career, this group is much more than that.
They have organization, a decent command and control network, funding enough for travel, attorneys, equipment, and an extensive propaganda network. Their members are motivated and becoming better equipped and trained by the minute.
Judge them by the fact that they are brazen and have no problem breaking the law. They have little to lose, and are out there carrying out violent attacks while the government sits on its hands, and those of us on the right largely sit around and complain on the Internet. Those on the right who DO stand up and say something are declared to be the terrorists and wind up being tortured for over a year in Federal prison, without trial and without bail.
They are dangerous and effective by the only metric that matters: they are succeeding, especially in Democrat controlled areas.
What can you do?
The best thing that we have going for us in Florida is our governor and our legal climate. So, the best thing we can do is stay right here in Florida.
Next, whenever you are in a crowd, keep a close eye on anyone dressed all in black. Especially if they have a backpack. If you see them making any attempt to place or use a device, remember that it is a forcible felony in Florida to do that. In fact, you should probably review the rules in Florida for deadly force in riot situations, found on this very site.
Be prepared to GTFO to a safe location. Be armed.
Use your head. Now that you have seen how people at the J6 event were treated, you can see where this is going.
The Biden administration is planning to prioritize medical care to people based upon race and ethnicity. Anyone who is not White will receive priority of care in order to correct “longstanding systemic health and social inequities.”
Genocide always follows a similar pattern. It’s a process, not a single event. A key feature of the genocidal process is that it is a patterned form of attack on a group. The first step is in causing others to recognize that a group of people is different, then systematically placing the blame for society’s woes upon those people.
Once everyone is good and angry at those “other” people, you can begin to take action, like denying them the rights of citizens. It isn’t long before denying rights moves on to camps, boxcars, and active elimination.
If you are white, you have been targeted as one of those other people as, undeserving of the rights that the rest of society is entitled. In history classes, I always wondered how the people living in nations could sit and watch as their government moved down the path to genocide.
Now I know.
From the NY Post: A fresh wave of supermarket price hikes is expected to begin in January, raising prices anywhere from 2% to 20%
Year over year inflation at the wholesale level is now at 9.6%. This sets a new record, surpassing the old records for 12-month increases of 8.6% set in both September and October.
I think that true inflation is even higher, because this number still doesn’t include food and energy. Remember that gasoline is up 58% for the past year.
The price of oil one year ago today was $42 per barrel. As of today, oil is selling at $82.50, and is expected to hit $100 per barrel within the next three months. Oil hasn’t been over $100 a barrel since July of 2014.
Let’s go Brandon.
More on Shortages
Winn Dixie, a southern grocery chain that is headquartered in Florida with stores in five southern states, is joining Publix in limiting the purchase of certain items. Items with purchase limits are:
- Canned cranberry sauce
- Canned pie filling
- Jarred gravy
- Cream cheese
- Canola and vegetable oil
- Paper napkins
- Disposable cups
- Cutlery and plates
- Toilet paper
- Rolled sausage
- Sports drinks
- Refrigerated pet food
- Canned cat food
The shortages are being blamed on a surge of post-recession spending by U.S. households flush with cash from stimulus checks, booming stock markets, and enlarged home equity along with supply chain issues. The key part of this is “flush with cash” because the government is putting too much cash into the economy: in other words, inflation.
People are taking that money and preparing for what they know is coming. Things continue to worsen.
