If You Thought 2020 Was Bad, Watch What Happens In 2021

December 11, 2020

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Birch Gold Group

In terms of the economy and the American social situation, 2020 is definitely one of the ugliest years on record, there’s really no way around it. That said, I get the impression that many in the public are operating under the assumption that we are about to cross over the peak of the mountain and it will be all downhill from here on. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

All eyes have been focused on the pandemic event, and the thinking is that once the pandemic is “over”, the crisis will be over and everything will go back to normal. But, as the globalists have been telling us since the outbreak began, the world “will never go back to normal again”. It’s not because of the pandemic, mind you, it’s because THEY won’t allow things to go back to normal. The “great reset”, as the World Economic Forum calls it, is meant to go on for many years. And, the globalists intend that every aspect of our lives be changed into something almost unrecognizable.

First I want to make it clear that I don’t expect the reset agenda to be successful. In fact, I think it’s going to fail miserably. The globalists have reached too far too fast and exposed themselves, and millions upon millions of people around the world and in America are not buying the pandemic narrative. But here is the problem; the pandemic is a distraction from a much greater threat, namely the economic collapse that is developing right now.

The financial downturn has been created by international banks and central banks through massive debt creation and inflationary stimulus measures. The initial spark for the wildfire took place in 2008, the economic threat has been under the noses of the public for quite some time. Now, however, the establishment has some perfect scapegoats, including the Trump Administration as well as the coronavirus. The globalists are hoping that people will become so mesmerized by the pandemic crisis and the election fight that they will rest all blame for the collapse on those two ready-made targets.

Make no mistake, the economy was put on life support long before Trump ever entered office and long before anyone ever heard of COVID-19. The globalists are simply pulling the plug right now and letting it die.

Of course, stock markets remain high, but the stock market does NOT represent the economy. It does not reflect financial health or the stability on main street. The stock market is an artificially propped up Pavlovian bell designed to make the public salivate every time the tickers go green. A majority of people tend to associate stock prices with economic improvement (mainly people who know nothing about economics or stocks). The extent of their research is 15 minutes of mainstream news a day along with 30-second reports on the Dow rising or falling, that is all. A rising Dow is enough to keep a large percentage of the population believing that things are going to get better.

Eventually stocks will crash along with almost everything else, just as they did in the hyperinflated markets of Weimar, Germany. But, what the public should be focused on is small business closures, including U-6 measurements, retail spending while stimulus is cut off, eviction notices, etc. This will tell you what the actual story is behind the economy.

There are certain events that could also expedite the downturn, and we must be wary of black swans right now. The financial system has been made so fragile over the past decade that any single major shock could bring it down (remember 2008?). Let’s not mistake stimulus for resilience. Stimulus has its limits and I believe we are hitting those limits as we enter 2021.

Here are some of the events I predict will happen next year, along with the effects they will have on the stability of America and many other parts of the world…

Contested Election Continues into January

State electors are supposed to finalize the presidential election results a week from now, but I suspect legal battles may prevent the electoral college from completing the tally. This could lead to electoral college results being ignored, and the fight for the White House continuing into next year (unless the Supreme Court can hear all arguments and come to a decision in record time).

Growing evidence of election fraud specifically in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan has led many conservatives to question the outcome of the presidential election. I don’t think the majority of the doubters will accept a Biden presidency even if Trump decided to concede.

What I think is more likely is that Trump will stay in office beyond the January inauguration day, and that the political left will suddenly realize that the election was not as absolute as they originally assumed.

The contested election would not cause economic instability directly, but it would mean that the public will be knocked out of their stupor and that their faith in the future will be shaken. Overvalued, fragile financial systems rely on the “greater fool” to support prices and need the blind faith of the population in order to continue lurching forward. That faith is about to be tested.

Mass Protests, Riots, Possibly Armed Conflict

I have become rather suspicious of the behavior of the mainstream media these days, even more so than usual. Why? Well, every time a hard fact on election fraud is released, the media has chosen to lie outright about it. And I’m not talking about clever spin in an attempt to diminish the effect of the news, I’m talking about outright lying that could easily be checked and debunked by anyone.

This kind of disinformation would never convince conservatives or even intelligent moderates because we double-check the sources. People on the political left, though, are more inclined to believe whatever the MSM says without doing their own research. I’m beginning to wonder if the media is pulling the same stunt they did in 2016: giving leftists false hope through misinformation, so that when things don’t go their way, they will become enraged as if something was stolen from them.

Is the media setting up the left for an epic shock by refusing to report any of the legitimate election fraud evidence and making them think there is no case? Is the goal to hit leftists so hard with Trump staying in office that they riot viciously in response?

Maybe I’m wrong and Biden goes into office without any obstructions as many expect. Let’s be honest, though, there are only two ways the election situation can go at this point:

In light of election fraud evidence, Trump stays in office. Leftists riot en masse claiming the presidency has been stolen. Conservatives will be asked to support martial law measures to “stop the insanity.” By supporting martial law, conservatives would sacrifice the very constitutional protections and liberties they claim to defend.

Biden enters the White House under heavy suspicion of fraud. He then tries to institute a Level 4 national lockdown in the name of stopping the pandemic. With the death rate for the virus well under 1% for anyone not living in a nursing home with preexisting conditions, and no evidence that mask mandates do anything to stop the virus spread, millions of American refuse to comply. The states and communities that do comply will suffer even more small-business closures and unemployment.

Biden would then try to initiate martial law measures, erasing civil liberties and possibly triggering a civil war.

Medical Passports and Vaccination Blackmail

Government officials are constantly in the media these days claiming that vaccinations will not be made mandatory. What they don’t mention is that they are already trying to legislate that anyone without a vaccination or medical passport will be unable to participate in normal society or even be allowed to work in their job. This program is moving at an incredibly fast pace, which makes me think the globalists realize they are losing the battle for the minds of the citizenry and they need to rush their agenda before it’s too late.

Here is what will happen in 2021 in terms of the pandemic:

  1. The media and elitist organizations will continue to pump up the infection numbers to frighten the public, even though the death rate is so low it makes the infection rate meaningless.
  2. If Biden is in office, mandates will be made into a federal issue and will be federally enforced.
  3. If Trump is in office, state governments will try to enforce mandates and major corporations will help them.
  4. There will then be a major push to require medical passports proving a person is not infected to enter into any public place. This means submission to 24/7 contact tracing or getting a new vaccine whenever ordered to. Basically, your life will be under the total control of state or federal governments if you want to have any semblance of returning to your normal life.
  5. If this process does not work and does not intimidate enough people into compliance, governments will seek to offer stimulus checks or a form of Universal Basic Income, but only for those people who agree to tracking through their cell phones and to vaccination.
  6. New mutations of COVID-19 will be conveniently found every year from now on, meaning the public will have to get new vaccinations constantly, and medical tyranny will never go away unless people take an aggressive stand.

It Gets Worse From Here On…

2021 will be far worse that 2020, but at least the lines will be drawn and the fight will be more clear to everyone. The economic crisis is what concerns me the most. The events listed above will complete the final downturn in the global system and America in particular. Such a financial crash would cause far more chaos and death than the coronavirus ever could.

Ultimately, I believe the public will respond badly to pandemic mandates. Many conservative states and counties will simply refuse to enforce them. However, the question is, will people end up fighting each other and forget all about the globalists that created the problem in the first place? Will mass poverty succeed where the pandemic failed in convincing Americans to give up their liberties in exchange for some stability?

Distractions abound, and the reset agenda looms, but I don’t see the globalists coming out of this unscathed. Too many people now know who they are and what they are up to.

    Brandon, your thoughts on the Supreme Court decision tonight? Does this change your view of Trump staying and fighting?

      Not yet. It was a long shot bid to begin with. The constitution is restrictive in how states can influence the policies of other states. There are so many lawsuits and fraud cases right now that I suspect eventually one or more of them will go to the Supreme Court. If not, Trump still may not concede. But if I’m wrong and Biden enters the White House, expect a FAST moving federal lockdown, economic crash and civil war.

        Do you think that the elites will come up with another virus, with a much higher mortality, if people refuse, for the most part, vaccination?

          Brandon Smith December 12, 2020 at 2:48 am

          Possibly. But going by Event 201, I think Covid 19 was supposed to be much deadlier than it is. So, if they failed once, they will probably fail again. Once a virus goes out into the wild, there is no controlling how it evolves, and the vast majority of viruses evolve to be LESS deadly over time, not more. Also, viruses tend to balance themselves out. If it is more deadly, it is less infectious. If it is more infectious, it is less deadly. I think they are rushing out the vaccinations because they know they screwed up. They were talking about the vaccine taking at least 18 months to develop only 3 months ago, and now suddenly they are pushing a barely tested vaccine into production? This may be their only chance. Good luck trying to trick the majority of the public again with another virus.

          • Ron R December 12, 2020 at 11:05 am

            Well, they already had that vaccine 3 months ago when they were “officially” talking about it taking another 18 months to offer it. Numerous articles around the world have mentioned “test subjects” in recent months and at least one article I saw talked about a guy who had antibodies still present 3 months after his own injection, meaning he had to have gotten the injection at least 3 months ago. To me, everything points to a real virus that was lab-grown, vaccine already in the works for years, released somehow into the public, and was supposed to be more deadly than it was. All the above agrees with reality.

          • Implied Violins December 13, 2020 at 3:17 am

            I think this whole show has been about the vaccine, not the virus. The virus isn’t something that they can control completely; heck, it could mutate and infect THEM. The vaccine, however, is another matter; and something they can fake taking and control who gets it. Viruses won’t infect people whose immune systems are strong anyway; Antoine Bechamp demonstrated that with his work developing Terrain Theory. The vaccine however CAN be made to destroy people’s immune systems – as has already happened with many being used today.

            Though there is a growing number of people who are waking up to the dangers of vaccines, there is a larger number who are still convinced they are necessary. Where I work, my boss has said he will mandate them – and almost all my coworkers will take them. I approached my union rep with the question of whether or not they will stand up to this, and they folded. This is going to be a much larger problem going forward than COVID ever was, because of the coming restrictions on travel and simply living unless one has their vaccine schedules punched properly…and as they keep telling us, one vaccine will NEVER be enough.

            Most Americans will take this vaccine just to “end” the pandemic and avoid the restrictions. And they will keep taking them every year, even as their health fails because of them. Just look at all those who continue to eat GMO’s even as they ruin their health. Something needs to be done to expose the entire Medical Industrial Complex and how they are in bed with the CDC and politicians, media, etc. before a majority will wake up to this evil – and even then, most never will change their minds as doing so would cause them to question their beliefs, which they have identified with. It would be too soul-crushing to face. – Tony Costa

            I agree on the first point; this has always been about the vaccine, the virus is incidental. And, from the analysis of the former Pfizer VP and other virology experts, it looks like the goal may be to sterilize a large portion of the population. That said, from the polls I’m seeing at least 1/3 of the country will refuse the vaccine outright. And, at least 60% of Americans are skeptical and will need some convincing. I’m also being told by multiple people in the medical field that nurses and doctors are going to REFUSE to take the vaccine, at least in the red states. I think the globalists are seeing the same data I’m seeing, which is why they went from saying the vaccine would not be available for 18 months, to all of a sudden releasing it right now. They are in a panic, and I suspect they are trying to get as many people poisoned as possible before too many in the population get wise. With a 0.26% death rate, they are going to have to hurry, because the virus isn’t scaring as many people as they had hoped. I feel bad for Europe and Australia, though. I think a lot of people are going to refuse the shot, but they have way less leverage over there than we do here. I hope they can fight back effectively.

        Texas case was tossed on standing, not merit.

        It seems as though the scotus is not willing to clean up the mess that the disputed state legislators failed to prevent in the first place.

        It also seems that the scotus is more willing to review cases that have come up from lower courts. More likely to correct bad rulings, than hear the merits themselves.

        So…it’s time for the legislature of disputed states to admitt their failure, get their head in the game, and work to fix it….


        One of these cases must move through lower courts into scotus to force a scotus ruling on merritt.

        The left will block these two channels because a scotus ruling in trump’s favor would be the most legitimate, and therefore most likely for the nation to accept…

        They want controversy, not legitimate rulings, and yesterday the calls for succession began.

        A court will hear, and rule on merritt, or the division the left is working for will continue to destroy our republic.

        Thanks for the good work brandon. You got followers in The State of Jefferson….we aren’t all fruits and nuts out here. The hill country north and south of the oregon cali border is still patriot country.

        • Justin December 12, 2020 at 4:26 pm

          Thanks for that update on the Texas case being tossed. Now they have exposed themselves as complicit in the fraud. It is well proven that they always go with precedents, stare decisis, and are not concerned with merits or the actual rule of law.
          That has been their major flaw, not to mention their bad habit of legislating from the bench.
          It does look like you are right that they don’t care about fixing any messes, or the merits, or the actual rule of law.

        • Justin December 14, 2020 at 6:30 pm

          So now it goes to the House of our so called Representatives to make the final decision.
          Any guesses on how that will go?
          It will be very interesting to say the least…
          It was not surprising that the SCOTUS kicked that decision away from them to the House.
          Many others already predicted exactly that would happen.

      • Justin December 12, 2020 at 4:03 pm

        It sounds like that lawsuit that Texas filed with 17 other States will be the one that matters.
        If the SCOTUS rejects it, then they just exposed themselves as complicit in the fraud too.
        Even so, there will be repercussions from that in Civil and State courts, not to mention the massive loss of trust and confidence in them and the election process in general.
        Part of their plan seems to be to undermine confidence in the election process to the point where few will bother to vote again, and few will trust any election result. Not to mention the division that it causes. They exposed themselves by showing us that it doesn’t matter who the votes are for, it only matters who counts the votes.
        If Biden gets in, then he will have the economic collapse on him to deal with, since it most likely won’t happen until well after January.
        Also, I read that Kamala has not resigned from her senate seat yet. Is that correct?
        If so, that is very interesting and telling indeed.
        I also agree with you that the resistance to the lock downs and vaccine is so great now that it will be a failure for them, and that another virus will fail too.

    Why would Biden need to do a huge federal lockdown if we are nearly two months into the vaccines which just got approved today? Do they expect almost no one will take the vaccines so the lock downs are our punishment if Biden gets in?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith December 11, 2020 at 10:49 pm

      Because conservative states and communities will refuse to accept federal lockdowns, which will not end simply because the vaccine exists. The vaccine is incidental to the issue.

      • Soldier December 11, 2020 at 11:32 pm

        But if the vaccine is 95% effective there is logically no need for any lockdowns. Their narrative makes no sense unless they openly admit the vaccine is not a treatment and lockdowns are still necessary.

          Brandon Smith December 11, 2020 at 11:57 pm

          The vaccines are only effective for 3 months, and they will continue the lockdowns regardless of what makes sense. You do realize who we are dealing with, right?

          They will not “openly admit” that any vaccine is not a treatment. They will use a multi-prong approach, stating that ALL covid-19 mandates are necessary to stop this extinction level event or we’re all gonna die!!

        • Justin December 12, 2020 at 5:25 pm

          From the many authoritative reports from many real virologists, unlike Fauci, the Pfizer vaccine is not 95% effective. That is a marketing lie. The research is out there for anyone to find. Their test was a joke, lacking any scientific reality or standards. Their so called joke test did not accept anyone over 55, and they were never tested for reinfection.
          NO vaccine has ever been more than 50% effective. Flu shots are only 0-40% effective. Based on historical data for vaccines, to believe that a rushed vaccine could be 95% effective is absurd. Not to mention their immunity to any legal liability.
          All vaccine manufacturers are immune from any legal liability. Who in their right mind would trust ANY company or product that was immune from legal liability?
          Their narrative is a blatant lie, and I have dozens of very qualified links to prove that, but I won’t post them here. The truth is out there. You just need to find it…

        • Seamus Padraig December 14, 2020 at 5:10 am

          What did logic ever have to do with it? For a ‘plague’ with a 99.74% survival rate, there was logically no need for any vaccine to begin with.

        • Brad December 16, 2020 at 6:04 pm

          The vaxxes have been stated at achieving 95% effectiveness in reducing symptoms of a mild to moderate CV infection. This for an illness that only has mild symptoms for most people. The makers do not know if their product will stop infection or its spread. Their product design is to minimize symptoms to which they claim a 95% success rate…..but the side effects of their vaxx seems just as bad as the original illness so why would anyone bother taking it without the heavy handed coercive measures that are waiting.

          Indemnity for damage extends to the makers and all health positions doing the dirty work. It does not extend to employers. No doubt there will be lawsuits on a grand scale if an employer mandates the vaxx for employees and some of them are damaged. This should be pointed out to employers who may consider mandating the vaxx. As a come back and if forced to I would make my employer sign a letter accepting liability if I am damaged by the vaxx they are mandating…making bthem put their money where their mouth is!

            On top of that, the effectiveness rate is based on very limited trials and is completely arbitrary. Meaning, the 95% stat is made up. But if they can convince a large number of people to take the vax without thinking and perhaps sterilize a considerable portion of the population, they will have accomplished what they set out to do. They are already building up the narrative that the pandemic response is also needed to “stop global warming”. I would not be surprised if, years down the road, they claimed that mass infertility is a “good thing” because it saves the planet from evil carbon emissions.

            There are remedies that can largely nullify the effect of having your body injected with toxins. Taking PectaSOL -c (citrus pectin) and fasting (to quiet the immune system) prior to and after the jab is one. I had this explained to me in medical terms as to how this works in our bodies but to reproduce that here does little for the lay if they have little knowledge of the complex medical/biological terms used.

        Or maybe what Biden would do is lockdown the country UNLESS you got the vaccine. IE taking the vaccine makes you exempt from the federal lockdown. Now that makes narrative sense.

          No, he’ll lockdown the country and try to keep it locked down permanently. The vaccine will allow you to work a job, or go to the movies, but it won’t get you your freedoms back. Contact tracing and medical passports will become a daily concern for the public if the elites get their way. This is the reset. It is meant to be forever. The narrative doesn’t need to make sense to you, it only needs to be implemented and accepted by a majority of people who are not you. You are looking at the situation from a very 1 dimensional perspective.

        • Ron R December 12, 2020 at 11:18 am

          “Or maybe what Biden would do is lockdown the country UNLESS you got the vaccine. IE taking the vaccine makes you exempt from the federal lockdown.”
          The problem with that statement (one of the problems with it) is the fact that there are very many people, including moi, who will not be harpooned. Since we know for a fact that not everybody will receive the vaccine (MILLIONS will not), exactly what threshold will Biden determine to be the floor, at what vaccination rate does he decide that we would no longer need a lockdown?
          Please remember what our buddy Bill Gates has said about the ungodly triad of vaccines, depopulation, and saving the planet. All these things related to cv19 – mask mandates, vaccines, lockdowns, etc. – are related to cv19 in the minds of the public, but they are separately used as a means to a greater end, an end that far supersedes any mere virus.

    The military can’t be everywhere. Even if we fully supported martial law, many communities would have to provide for their own defense.

  • Aware December 11, 2020 at 11:38 pm

    People are rebelling even in more liberal states. Here in California many restaurants and other small businesses are refusing to comply with orders to stop or significantly restrict their business. The resisitance is good to see but I don’t think TPTB are relying only on this “pandemic” to collapse the nation. The “pandemic” restrictions have already done enough damage. Coupled with a lack of stimulus for the average citizen, many have been left destitute or on the edge of destitution. I think they will end QE (which is barely supporting the system as is) and we may suffer a cyber attack. Stocks and estate are where the last vestiges of wealth reside for the dwindling middle class. I think they are willing to sacrifice stocks/RE, because they will always have access to the moneyprinter in the next system.

    hi Brandon, one of the possible scenarios you have alluded to is Trump “just staying” in the White House if all else fails. How exactly would that play out? What forces/people.circumstances would back that move? And which ones would drag him out? When those opposing forces clash, what do you think the globalists have planned for that scenario? (The same question regarding invoking the Insurrection Act). Do you think the globalists are playing this script to the very last minute to yank Biden away from the left so they go berserk to the max? If the steal succeeds, do you see the right reacting with the same force (or more) as the left if Trump were to remain in office? Thanks.

  • Angélo December 12, 2020 at 8:28 am

    Hello Brandon, thank you for your amazing content and exact analysis.

    As a Frenchman, I look at the situation in the U.S. from the outside and I see that there are still more high-ranking fighters for the truth in your country than in ours, here we are falling into a totalitarian dictatorship, the French government has ordered thousands of drones and has passed laws that are totally liberticidal during the draconian confinements. Having said that, we can clearly feel a resistance being put in place here and everywhere else, and which is being heard more and more. I think we’re all anxious to know what will happen in early 2021…who of the alliance behind Trump or the cabal behind Biden will turn the big reset and social upheaval to their advantage….

    Note to Brandon. I am determined not to get the vaccine and am willing to move out of california if there is a place that does not require a vaccine. The truth is hard to find these days. Would love it if you had a section somewhere in the future where people could write in what the vaccine laws are in their locale. It could be a community service contribution or alternatively I would be willing to pay for this information.

    Thank you.

    • Gauntlet33 December 14, 2020 at 1:38 pm

      Hi, I researched South Carolina there’s no mandatory vaccine law there.

    • Justin December 14, 2020 at 5:58 pm

      AFAIK from the research I have done so far there are no, and will be no mandatory vaccines in any US state, unless you accept that a mandate is law, which it is not.
      They probably will create some sort of virus pass in order to travel, but that is still a scam.
      Mandates from governors are not law, unless it was legislated by the State legislature.
      Understand how the law works, or does not work…
      Governors and the SCOTUS cannot legislate anything, so the State legislatures and SCOTUS are where attention should be focused. That is where they are both over stepping their authority, and where that must be stopped.
      BTW, the feds just introduced a bill to legalize cannabis, since more than half of the States already have, so they realized they lost that war, and gave into it.
      That is the trend and picture that is forming….

        They will say it’s not mandatory, but if you can’t get a “medical passport” to go to work or participate in the economy because you refuse the vaccine, then it will be the same as mandatory. I agree that state governors have no authority whatsoever to create such mandates unilaterally. They are not dictators though some of them would certainly like to be.

        • Dawn December 15, 2020 at 9:49 am

          Kinda like the whole Obama era BS of “if you like your doctor you can keep em” and “there will not be a penalty for not having health insurance.”
          Both complete lies and the proof was in the pudding so to speak. Now no one can afford insurance. What a disaster that was and this will be no different.

  • Ron R December 12, 2020 at 12:03 pm

    “However, the question is, will people end up fighting each other and forget all about the globalists that created the problem in the first place? Will mass poverty succeed where the pandemic failed in convincing Americans to give up their liberties in exchange for some stability?”
    That is the question, and there is a complicated answer.
    I’m probably in a different camp from most people here. Since our worldviews affect our perception and expectations, and since, as a Christian I see things through a spiritual perspective, I believe that ultimately, it is not the globalists we have to worry about, but the very people who should be on our side fighting them. What this world is moving toward is about much more than what dystopia a rich and powerful group of Gaia worshipers and communist lovers wish to achieve. As rich, influential, and powerful as they are, they themselves are being moved by powers that are beyond even them. And it’s in the midst of this great struggle between good and evil that the masses of people will make decisions that will last for eternity.

    • Gauntlet33 December 14, 2020 at 1:35 pm

      I agree that people shouldn’t fight each other and that all our energy should be directed towards the globalists. But what happens when there’s a home invader in the middle of the night?

      The big picture right now is the globalists, and the “bigger” big picture may be GOOD (God) v. Evil (Devil). Are we unwitting soldiers in that war? If we choose wrong, will we be condemned to hell? By choosing to fight for justice, will we be granted a place in Heaven? I don’t know, but I do tend to believe that the only thing we can do is the “next right thing” (borrowed from Frozen II). Also from that movie, Elsa says, “No fire, no water, the earth is next. We have to get out!” Is she making a reference to “Dark Winter” if they shut off electricity and water? (This movie was release right before COVID, so it just makes me wonder.)

      Also, I read somewhere that they’ll forgive our debts if we agree in writing to not hold any property ownership interest for the rest of our lives. That would push their agendas and makes sense why they want to impoverish everyone and leave everyone as debt servants/peasants to them.

      Also, watch this video where this lady was intimidated and killed for her speaking out against the restrictions here in CA:

      Anyway, I am very much against killing, but I have come to the conclusion / rationalization that I would only kill if forced to kill. I would not enjoy it, but would only do so to save myself and my loved ones from those who attack, and I may even be helping God in His battle against Satan by doing so, and if that’s the case, I’m happy to join in His army.

  • ilo December 12, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    Everyone needs to know don’t fear COVID. Of course people are realizing en masse that the test doesn’t mean anything. But there is a sickness. But there are CURES. Find the protocol for high-dose Vitamin C. Find the protocol for chlorine dioxide. I have used both to fight off others “viruses”. They work. There are clinical studies that prove this. Do not take the vaccine. If everyone knows these cures, this situation will go away and we can get back our lives.

    • Stephen P December 12, 2020 at 2:09 pm

      There are so many natural solutions. Colloidal silver, elderberry, Vitamin C, D, Zinc, HCQ just to name a few. Unfortunately ILo too few trust thier own judgment and are unwilling/unable to do thier own research and take chances via trial and error.

  • blue horizons December 12, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    An economic issue related to the Great Reset aka Fourth Industrial Revolution that I haven’t observed being discussed much is Human Capital Markets which are already being trialed. The person who seems to be most well known as a public researcher on this subject is Alison McDowell – a progressive leaning education activist. Her findings are circulating widely on Twitter. She’s done some very extensive research.

    Please look into this, Brandon. We need analyses on this from Libertarian, conservative, and freedom-minded people. McDowell seems a bit reluctant to reach out to other groups. She’s only been awake for about 3 years and, imho, hasn’t quite let go of identity politics yet. Here’s a relevant interview on her website. >

    I’m noticing the globalists are trying to avoid public focus and energetic analyses on privatization and human capital markets. Those are two key agendas already rolling out for 4IR. Of course, privatization, as a transfer of power to big corporate insiders, has been going on for years. However now it’s really accelerating in every nation.

    Several years ago Matt Taibbi wrote an important article that was published in Rolling Stone magazine. I think it might have been titled The Highway Men. It went into detail on the march towards privatization of public assets, typically sold to foreign multinational corporations, and especially transportation related. It described how state governors were being trained to do this in their states. Maybe a year or two later Taibbi had a well known article published in the Rolling Stone about Goldman Sachs and related banking cronies, it was titled The Vampire Squid. That article stayed on Rolling Stone’s website for a long time but the privatization article was taken down. I suspect some powerful people didn’t want any deep probing on what was behind P3. The magician’s trick. Look here, no there.

  • Karen December 13, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    I have read that in the event of a Trump lawsuit win, that the world would “lose faith” in the U.S. voting system and a selling off of Treasuries would ensue leading to the dollar collapse and the end of the dollar as the world reserve currency. Are you of this opinion as well?

      Brandon Smith December 13, 2020 at 2:11 pm

      The economy is crashing regardless of what happens in the election. I think with Trump it will just happen a little slower. Under Biden and federally imposed lockdowns the small business sector will collapse completely in the span of 6 months and 50% of US jobs will disappear. The dollar will get hit eventually, but not until the rest of the economy is already in dire straights.

      • Tobias December 15, 2020 at 1:55 pm


        what do you think will happen when the dollar gets hit? Sound innocuous, but do you think the U.S. in its current form (territory and single form of federal government), can actually survive a hit like that? After all, all we have is a printing machine.

        Thanks and some people think wrestling is real. The left/right red/blue paradigm is a mirage. Both political parties are two sides of the same coin. It was the Republicans who helped pass Obamacare when prior to its passage they were sounding the alarm on why it needed to be defeated.

        People need to realize that those in power love to “play people”. They have little to no interest in the public.

            Trust no one and yes we the people are on our own because those in charge including the MSM are not looking out for us. Find like minded Liberty minded folk in your community. Liberty minded people have figured out the left vs right BS. They are all in on the same Globalist plan. One party wants to slow it down while the other wants a fast track but make NO mistake both parties are heading in the same direction with the same goal, a one world government with a global currency.

          • Rodster December 16, 2020 at 12:03 pm

            Yes, Trump is part of the Globalist plan. If he wasn’t he would not have filled his cabinet with Globalists and creatures from The Swamp.

          • Mark December 17, 2020 at 7:14 am

            I don’t know. I still think Trump is one of the good guys. The way the media demonizes him like no other, the way his enemies tried to remove him from the office, etc, but you’re totally right; can’t trust anyone. My family and I live in Denver. We’re planning to move because this state is too blue. I’m thinking about Texas and Idaho. I’m even thinking Russia if all hell breaks loose. If you had to relocate, where would you go?

            Bottom line: Trump’s cabinet is loaded with globalists and banking elites. Even if he is on the level, the people that influence him are not. We have to keep that in mind and not rely on Trump to save us. We have to save ourselves. Both Texas and Idaho look good for relocation. Also, Montana is seeing quite a surge of conservatives the past 6 months.

          • Mark December 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm

            I’m in Florida and “so far” we have a Gov with good ‘ol commonsense which is in short supply these days. I plan on sticking it out as long as we have sensible Gov’t. If not I will be moving to Texas as well.

  • Brad December 16, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    Always an interesting article by Smith with much thought put into them. I concur that a catastrophic economic collapse is already in the works for main street and it will only unfold further getting much worse…Wall Street and beyond get a funny money bail out. Many other clear visioned alt pundits are seeing the same scenario. I don’t know that it matters who gets the WH as this agenda will be pushed for all it’s worth. Only the rhetoric would change. What is heartening is the growing push back by some folks and authorities in some areas, primarily in the USA because of its Constitution and a few other nations but with less of a legal standing in them because of a lack of the necessary constitutional rights and privileges required for true freedom to exist at all but the lowest levels. The fight for human freedom and dignity is about to be joined and control of the narrative will be most of the battle….unless actual violence begins to take place against the metaphysical mistakes and their henchmen/women that have had their way for far too long.
