Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #45 Starts HERE At 6pm Mountain Time!

December 22, 2020

The Q&A portion of the Wild Bunch Dispatch will be held on this page from 6pm to 7:30pm (Mountain Time) today.  Any questions you might have on the 45th issue please post here and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.  Some ground rules:

1)  Please stick to the subject matter of the newsletter.

2)  This is not a debate forum.  If you have some concerns I’m happy to address them, but I can’t get into a long circular debate while other people have questions.

3)  If I do not respond to your question immediately, don’t freak out.  I’ll get to it, don’t worry.

4)  Try to keep to one or two questions each time you write a post.  Please refrain from essay-long multi-question posts.  It is much appreciated. 

I will begin discussion at exactly 6pm Mountain time.  Looking forward to your questions and thoughts on the Wild Bunch Issue #45.  The next issue of the newsletter will be released on January 2nd.  If you missed out on this discussion you can still subscribe for the next issue and participate.  For more information on how to subscribe, visit the link HERE.

    Discussion on Issue #45 is now open.

  • Byron December 22, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    1) As we begin winter, do you think the stark increase in the price of food will have an impact on any of the scenarios you go over in this newsletter, or will that take longer to effect the population?
    2) What do you make of this latest coronavirus strain allegedly originating in the UK (as well as the one supposedly coming from South Africa)? Just curious why the MSM is hyping this one so much when other mutations haven’t had as much impact.

      1) Prices on many bulk foods have already doubled, but I think the REAL inflation spike will come mid-2021, maybe in the spring. There is still time for people to prepare.

      2) My next article will be on that exact issue. It will be published either tomorrow or Thursday.

    Brandon, how would the banks fit into this collapse scenario. Do you expect that the banks are going down or closing or a bank holiday?
    Are you expecting money printing to the end and the banks staying open or a surprise Monday morning closure?

      It looks like the major banks are being fully propped up, so they will continue to operate well into the economic crash. It makes some sense, the elites need them to carry out any shift into a cashless system (as is clearly the plan according to the World Economic Forum and the IMF). It’s possible that there will be bank runs or bank holidays but I think they WANT people to keep their money in bank accounts so that the transition into cashless will be smoother. There are dozens of paths the crash could take from this point on (in terms of the financial side) so it’s difficult to predict exact details.

  • Rick O"Shay December 22, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    How much pain do you think the average American will endure before bringing out the pitchforks? I live in a rural area near an extremely affluent town in Kentucky. The folks in town seem completely oblivious. In spite of the blatant fraud evident in the 2020 election, the townies all seem complacent and look forward to the 2022 election. Uh, if they cheated once, what makes you think it won’t happen again? These people have money but that’s all they have-no land, no common sense, and most of them are educated professionals. What’s it going to take?

      I’m betting if you start a preparedness discussion group that’s open to the public you will meet MANY people who see the same things you see. People might seem oblivious, but there are millions that are not. Look at what is happening in CA, NY and in Oregon right now; people are uniting and organizing and refusing to comply with the lockdowns. Sheriffs and LEOs across the country are openly refusing to enforce lockdown mandates. The pitchforks are coming out right now. Rebellion is like an avalanche, it starts with a minor tremor and then builds and explodes.

      • Aware December 22, 2020 at 6:46 pm

        What do you think the “elites” will do in response to the growing rebellion? Try and institute martial law?

          It seems all roads lead to martial law, or at least attempted martial law. If Trump stays in – martial law. If Biden gets in – federal lockdowns and martial law. This plan will not succeed if the public organizes now to defy such measures.

  • Greg B. December 22, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    As far as I’m concerned the conservative counties, states and communities that band together and decouple from the current system are going to become the only areas where real law and order will remain as the system comes crashing down.

      Agreed. The leftists have no idea that they are setting themselves up for disaster. They what to create chaos but they are completely unprepared for the consequences. They will be eaten alive when the rule of law breaks down in major cities.

      • Greg B. December 22, 2020 at 6:53 pm

        Also unlike the leftists we actually have objective and reliable standards as a base for law, order and justice: The Constitution, Bill of Rights, natural law, the Non Aggression Principle, etc. The left have none of these things; their notions of simple right and wrong basically amounts to whether or not something hurts their feelings.

          Yes. The leftists only have one principle: Destruction. They have no idea how to build or create anything new, they only know how to destroy what other people have built. Just look at the “CHAZ”; it was a hilarious disaster. That said, the globalists are using the leftists as suicide bombers. They have a system they want to put in place, the leftists are simply being exploited as a tool to destroy the old systems.

  • William Wallace December 22, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    Do you think executive order 13848 will be used in the next month? Do you believe the stories General Mcinerney was reporting on about the German server farm and the rumor that Gina Haspel is at Guantanamo?

      Brandon Smith December 22, 2020 at 6:49 pm

      Well, the Qanon stuff is a pure psyop and there is no chance that Trump is playing 4D chess with the globalists, being that the globalists are packed into his own cabinet. That said, Order 13848 is a rather convenient setup for an extension of the election fight well into 2021. My suspicion is that Trump will not concede and that the elites are going to try to provoke the leftists into all out riots across the country. Trump will declare martial law in response and the process of erasing the Bill of Rights will begin in the name of “defeating the left”. The question is, will conservatives go along with this? My hope is that they will not. Order 13848 is very broad in its potential uses; it could very well be used as a means to initiate the first stages of martial law. We can secure our own communities. We don’t need martial law.

      • William Wallace December 22, 2020 at 6:53 pm

        Zuckerberg has been dumping Facebook stock everyday since election day 15-20 mil. It will be interesting to see if Trump uses that EO to go after some of his enemies.

          The problem is that giving the government power to micromanage the internet is just as bad as allowing corporations to do it. The solution that no one is talking about is for the government to STOP giving these Big Tech companies bailouts and welfare handouts and let them collapse. The government could also remove their corporate charters and make them into partnerships rather than having limited liability. Instead, Trump is trying to create a scenario where ALL companies are left unprotected from lawsuits and this means only major corporations could survive the onslaught of lawsuits that would follow. All smaller companies would be destroyed.

  • John White December 22, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    What are your thoughts on possible black swan events that hasten the collapse? Is there anything on your radar?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith December 22, 2020 at 6:53 pm

      There’s hundreds of options for that, but I suspect the election fight IS the black swan event. It has all the elements the elites need to create total chaos and collapse within the US. That does not mean they will succeed, but it seems they are going to try. The crash is going to happen and there’s nothing that can be done to stop it, but we can ensure that we are the ones that rebuild and not the globalists.

  • Greg B. December 22, 2020 at 6:54 pm

    Any thoughts on recent events in Salem, Oregon?

  • Aware December 22, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    What do you think about the theater on the latest “stimulus” bill and Trump kicking it back to Congress with an interesting demand for a higher amount of direct payment that the Senate will unlikely approve. It seems to be setup that no stimulus will get to the American people. By design of course…

      Brandon Smith December 22, 2020 at 7:10 pm

      I agree. I think this is about driving the public to desperation; making them think they are going to get handouts or relief and then snapping it away at the last minute. Stalling the stimulus bill will primarily affect lower middle-class people that are dependent on welfare subsidies (in other words, mostly Democrats). This may be an attempt to further drive leftists into riots over the next few months. I think this is building towards mass unrest in the spring. Also, there is the possibility that the goals is to simply create cover for the coming stagflationary crisis. The media can say “Look, Trump WANTED all this money printing, and now the dollar is collapsing…”

  • Davvidcarrt December 22, 2020 at 7:20 pm

    Great article! The section that talked about the drop in the birthrate got me thinking about the decline in “family values”. Now before I ask my question DO NOT confuse me with evangelicals. Truth be told they did more to sabotage family values than any hedonist or satanist ever could have dreamed of by being the driving force to create laws to discourage immoral behavior (drug laws and prostitution laws). What do you see as the cause of the collapse in the birthrate? Let me give you some example/anecdotes from history to see what you think of them. There is a certain Roman historian, whose name escapes me right now, that remarked how promiscuous people became towards the end of the Rome’s domination of the Mediterranean. Two examples he gave were a sky high divorce rate and a growing number of orgies. Although he was certainly biased, so we can never be for sure if his accounts are true, modern archeology confirms his first account. What do you view as a root cause(s) of the drop in child births in the west? Do you think it is solely financial or if a decline in family values has something to do with it. Do you think family values have anything to do with it or do you think my example is an annoying moralistic tirade?

      I think it’s a combination of the bad economy and also the mainstream trend of encouraging narcissistic thinking. Newer generations entering into adulthood are afraid of the responsibility of having a family in terms of financial costs and they are also being told that it’s better to remain single and keep all their money for themselves and for “fun”. This creates a mentality of perpetual childishness. When you have people in their 30s still living with their parents and playing video games all day then your society has a serious problem. The fault lay in the hands of the parents, though. They are enabling this selfish behavior. Helping your kids when they are having a crisis is one thing, but perpetually coddling them and shielding them from responsibility is another.

      • Aware December 22, 2020 at 7:33 pm

        Don’t forget the plastics, poor diets, pharmaceuticals, or the thousands of other man-made chemicals permeating our water and food supply. These things all lower fertility rates.

      • Cynthia January 3, 2021 at 3:17 pm

        I know many Cimate change activists that think bringing children into the world is due to end in 12 years.Could this be another reason?

  • Pita December 22, 2020 at 7:27 pm

    My governor recently instituted a statewide 10pm-5am curfew & no alcohol sales for onsite consumption after 9pm, effectively killing the bar businesses and deeply impacting many restaurants. At least half of the people are starting to get more angry. The area I’m in has been blue for many years, even though it is rural. My fear is that it will get very ugly because our state population is definitely split and I live on the wrong side of the political dividing line. In cases of purple political areas where there has been no progressive/conservative dividing lines and everyone is intermingled, do you have any suggestions as how to wake up more people? Half of the people are unable to hold a conversation about anything based on their political bent and hatred of conservatives and their full faith in our local media (which is extremely biased in its reporting).

      Organize open public meetings for conservatives and preparedness people. I guarantee you will have like minded folks show up if you stick with it.

  • Davvidcarrt December 22, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    Are you in NC? Same garbage is happening here. If so, approximately where do you reside?

    • Pita December 22, 2020 at 7:37 pm

      Yes. Eastern side of NC. I can’t even watch Cooper’s weekly “briefings” anymore. Cohen has been in sjw mode since she became a doctor and worked with Obama’s group while he was in office. There are so many of us here who are completely over his authoritarianism.

    Apart from current discussion , did you know you got positive mention in Luongo ‘ s article today?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith December 22, 2020 at 11:25 pm

      Someone sent it to me this evening. What I would add to his analysis is that separating or seceding from the violence of the political left and the globalists is more about securing the moral high ground than it is a long term solution. It is only a part of defeating the globalists. My article was meant to drive home the point that conservatives must not be lured into using totalitarian measures as a weapon against the leftists. But, if we separate from them and they still come after us (as psychopaths are likely to do) then we must be ready to defend ourselves, and that does include violent means. Not by giving government more power through martial law, but by organizing a citizens defense and taking power back from the government. Secession or separation from the leftists does not get us out of a fight, it allows us to unify and organize for a fight that is probably inevitable.

      To Luongo’s credit he does understand something that I’m not sure if the majority of conservatives understand – That the elites are using the left, not as stormtroopers to overtake conservatives, but as an electric cattle prod designed to enrage us into going full totalitarian and selling our souls in order to “win”. If we do that we might win in the short term, but we will lose in the long term. The globalists are playing the long game, and so must we.
