The “New Confederacy”? Yes, It’s Time For Conservatives To Unite Against The Globalist Reset

December 17, 2020

By Brandon Smith

The narrative could not be more transparent or obvious, but then again, the elites are becoming lazy in their propaganda and the leftists are not all that bright. Essentially, every time conservatives (or moderates) organize to defend themselves against communist or globalist attack we are called “Nazis”, brownshirts, populists, bullies, etc. Now, I would remind these people that if we were really going the path of the Sturmabteilung then there would be rampant intimidation and assault on leftists to the point that they would be afraid to leave their homes or even identify as leftists. Conservatives believe in self defense, not coercion and terror tactics.

Such actions are the wheelhouse of the political left these days. They are far better than we are at imitating Brownshirt behavior. The reality is that across the board the only people engaging in widespread censorship and violence are on the political left, yet we are supposed to be the “Nazis”?

Historically, there does seem to be a pattern here, though. In Germany in the 1920s-1930s communist groups were highly active and initiated street violence, riots and even assassinations. This lured many Germans in fear of being overtaken by a communist regime to support national socialism, the other side of the coin when it comes to tyranny. In other words, to defeat the communists the public supported the fascists, and the fascists ended up being just as bad as the communists.

If you study the investigations of historians like Antony Sutton in books like ‘Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution’ or ‘Wall Street And The Rise Of Hitler’, you will discover there is incredible evidence proving that BOTH the communists and the fascists were funded and managed by the same global elites. In other words, the bankers win either way because they control both sides of the game.

I do suspect that a similar strategy is being implemented within the US today, and that part of the agenda of globalists hellbent on getting their “great reset” is to foment civil war in America while controlling or manipulating both sides of the fight.

It is indeed a Catch-22 for conservatives:

If we roll over and do nothing, then the extreme left and their corporate and political partners take control of the country and we will never see freedom again as they assert their “social justice” mandates along with their lockdown mandates.

If we fight back using the same tactics as the leftists or support martial law, then we ultimately erase the civil liberties protected within the Bill of Rights. Those rights will NEVER return (don’t believe the promises for a second) and we become history’s biggest hypocrites and a cautionary tale of the “dangers of nationalism” told to children generations from now, much like the Nazis.

There is, however, another option, and it’s not diplomacy.

The establishment likes to make people think there are only ever two choices during any crisis, and both choices involve giving up more freedom or giving government more power. What they don’t want you to consider is the third option – The people taking power for themselves and removing power from those that would abuse it.

Why should we rely on a middleman to enact such measures? Why are we always being told that we need to wait for a president or a government to do the job we can do ourselves? The liberty movement doesn’t revolve around Trump or the election, and it should NEVER rely on martial law as a means to secure our safety. We can do this on our own without asking permission or waiting to be led by a mascot.

It is true that the political left and conservatives are no longer capable of finding common ground (except, interestingly, among some moderate liberals that also stand against forced vaccinations and medical mandates). In terms of the hard left, their cult is so far beyond reality now that it would be impossible to reconcile. They live on another planet and their frothing zealotry is too entrenched for them to ever see reason.

In their delusional fantasies we are the ultimate villains, and they are the “noble freedom fighters”. Of course, every single establishment power platform in the corporate world, in Big Tech and in the mainstream media is at their disposal, not to mention millions in funding from globalist organizations like the Open Society Foundation and the Ford Foundation, so this tale of the leftist “underdog” makes us double over with laughter at times.

The majority of conservatives just want to be left alone to live our lives the way we see fit. You know, like real Americans are supposed to do. But this notion is not acceptable to collectivists. They argue that we are “all part of a society”…THEIR society, and we must abide by their ideologies and rules “for the greater good” or suffer the consequences. In other words, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

The fact is, groups in general are abstractions of the mind. Just because someone declares that you are a part of their society does not make it so. Walking away is every individual’s right as a human being. Groups that survive and thrive tend to be built on shared values and principles. They don’t all need to agree on every detail, but they can’t be diametrically opposed in every way either.

Usually those with principles that match with an inherent sense of conscience are the groups that most appeal to people.

That said, there are people in this world (around 1% to 5% of any given population) that do NOT have inherent conscience, or they suffer from an ingrained affliction called narcissism. These people are attracted to movements that seek to dominate others, and they maintain membership through force rather than appealing to principle. There is no possible way that this group can ever coexist with people that value freedom and empathy. At least, not without incredible conflict…

There is a large and growing opposition to pandemic lockdown measures, social justice policies that amount to cultural Marxism, as well as the prospect of a Biden presidency which would encourage both of these travesties exponentially. It’s not all about Biden or the leftists, obviously. The Reset goes far beyond them, but many conservatives are looking at the problem more according to what is directly in front of them and less according to the people behind the curtain.

In light of this the mainstream media is doing exactly what is it designed to do – Create propaganda to “shame” anyone that dares to oppose the prevailing establishment narrative. Their most recent strategy is to label the conservative rebellion against the Reset as “the new Confederacy”, and to bring up the specter of the Civil War.

This narrative is riding on the back of discussion among conservatives and state politicians that the possibility of secession should be explored in the wake of the growing impasse between leftists, the globalist agenda, and freedom loving Americans.

The establishment and the useful idiots on the left will have none of it. Despite the fact that all they talked about during the first two years of Trump’s presidency was secession, now that the shoe is on the other foot (if Biden enters the White House and maybe even if he doesn’t) the SJWs and their media counterparts are FURIOUS at the idea that conservatives might actually succeed where they failed.

Collectivists are good at destroying things, not creating things. Their calls for secession were a joke because we all know they are incapable of self sufficiency, and also they have no means of defense. One look at short lived autonomous zones like “The CHAZ” will give you insight to what would happen if leftists tried to separate within a states. It would be a disaster for them.

When conservatives talk about separation, though, the leftists and globalists listen. They might not ever admit it, but they know we are actually capable of it.

To be clear, what I believe is happening is that conservatives are being prodded and provoked, not to separate and organize but to centralize. I think they want us to support actions like martial law which would be considered totalitarian. Conservatives, the only stalwart defenders of civil liberties, using military suppression and abandoning the Bill of Rights to maintain political power? That is a dream come true for the globalists in the long term. And despite people’s faith in Trump, there are far too many banking elites and globalists within his cabinet to ensure that such power will not be abused or used against us later.

I think the concept of the “new confederacy” label being used by leftists and the media reveals what they truly fear, though:

If they can get us to roll over for the lockdowns and medical tyranny and a Biden dictatorship, they’re happy. If they can get us to support martial law under a Trump “coup”, they’re happy. But what they don’t want is for conservatives and moderates to form their own organizational resistance not beholden to any singular political figure or top down pyramid structure.

Such organization is happening right now. Millions of liberty minded Americans are leaving leftist counties and states, taking their wealth and businesses with them, and going to more conservative regions where they feel they will be safer. There has not been an ideological immigration like this in the US for well over a century. The reality is that conservatives are congregating (FINALLY) and they are starting to work together for their own security.

In my own area in Montana I have been running local open meetings on preparedness and current events in the hopes of getting people on the same page and networked in the event that the current crisis spills over and rule of law breaks down. Or, in the event that there is an attempt by the state or federal government to enforce medical lockdown mandates where we live. These meetings have been expanding in the past couple of months and needless to say, people in my town are not going to submit to restrictions and do not plan to hide quietly in their homes while their community and businesses are destroyed.

These groups are forming across the country, and thank God, because without community organization there is ZERO chance of survival or freedom for liberty minded Americans. As I’ve noted in some of my latest articles, the rebellion against lockdowns and vaccination mandates is visible even in hard-left states like California and New York. There is much to be optimistic about. However, the fight is going to be difficult and there will be ample vitriol leveled against us as we successfully unify.

Organization requires a tit-for-tat philosophy to do well. Meaning, everyone must take some risk in order to encourage others to join the fight.

For example, conservatives want business owners to refuse to enforce lockdown rules. But, if a business owner makes this courageous choice and faces off with government health officials, then patriots need to be there to back them up. This might even mean standing in the way of law enforcement that is violating the constitutional rights of that business.

I call this “creating a wall of worry”; many police and sheriffs are not onboard with the enforcement of illegal mandates, but those that are need to understand that there are potential consequences for doing so. The wall of worry is a deterrent, and the larger the group of people involved the better. Police are not going to risk escalation of a fight over lockdown mandates if they realize that fight could go badly for them. And, if people in their own departments are against the lockdowns, the consequences double if they seek to enforce them. They should be the ones worried, not us.

Health Department officials are even less likely to push the issue in the face of opposition.

By extension, if your local sheriff’s department or police department is standing against the unconstitutional mandates and the state or federal government threatens them with repercussions, YOU must be there to offer help and support. They are taking a risk for you, so you must be willing to take a risk for them.

I am also hearing considerable chatter that many medical professionals including doctors and nurses are going to REFUSE to take the poorly tested and questionable Covid vaccine for fear of damaging side effects. And why should they? Why take a vaccine for a virus that only threatens less than 0.3% of the public outside of nursing homes?

Medical professionals are under immense pressure to take the vaccine or lose their license to practice. Conservatives MUST defend them if they rebel against mandatory vaccination.

This means helping them to set up their own clinics outside of the controlled system where they can continue to aid people and still make a living. This means networking liberty minded patients that need treatments for various ailments to doctors and nurses that will not demand they show a medical passport and will not report them to the government. This means protecting doctors and nurses from retribution should government officials try to punish or arrest them.

Communities will need to build their own localized economies, using barter and trade and maybe even creating a local currency scrip (hopefully backed by some kind of commodity). They are going to have to insulate themselves from the lockdowns economically in order to defy the lockdowns in a practical way. Otherwise, anyone that does not conform to medical passports and contact tracing will be denied access to the establishment controlled economy and die of poverty. We have to create alternatives. We have to offer people a choice outside of tyranny, otherwise many will go along with the tyranny.

Finally, conservative communities are going to have to provide for their own security. Regardless of how the election situation actually ends, and even if Trump stays in the White House and refuses to concede, martial law is an unacceptable scenario. Conservatives don’t need it anyway. We should be establishing localized security (otherwise known as militias) composed of any able bodied person in the community that wants to join. These militias would have to form as unofficial organizations, as it is unlikely that state politicians will sanction them.

That’s okay. We don’t need them to sanction our own security and defense. Like I said, we can handle it ourselves.

In the meantime, the leftists will label us “brownshirts”, but as mentioned they are the people that have proven over and over again to be violent and totalitarian, so their accusations ring hollow. The media will call us the “new confederacy”, which is funny because the majority of the original confederates and slave owners during the Civil War were Democrats.

We’ll set aside that irony and point out that people have an inherent right to self defense and to freedom from oppression, and none of us are slave owners. Anyone that calls for the globalist Reset is an enemy of individual rights, and anyone that tries to enforce medical tyranny is on the wrong side of history and of morality.

They can call us whatever they want and make erroneous historical comparisons until they are blue in the face; it won’t change the fact that we are seeking to be free and they are seeking to take that freedom away. This is all that matters.

    Agree with you, BUT… If the Democrats are not stopped and they take office in Jan.. The first things coming down the road is GUN LAWS and that will make things worse.. Do not know if there is time to get the ball rolling on your program, before major problems come about.

        I read your article first on Zero hedge. What you are saying is absolutely correct even though many patriots may not understand – Yet. We are living in the age of “Perception Deception”.
        Actually, what you are saying is what I am reading in so many of David Ickes books and messages and if you have not read them I would say it is the same forces that are guiding your pen and your thoughts and you know what I am talking about, I am convinced.

        YES! You are right, FREEDOM must be build and cared for from the bottom up. The pyramid structure is the structure of control and total tyranny. Humanity knows better than that but we were lead in forgetting who we are and how powerful we are once we will re-discover ourselves.

        “They should be the ones worried, not us.”
        The day any corrupt banker, politician, ngo workers/leaders, police chiefs etc fear to step outside, we will finally know a real resistance have emerged from the people.

      • Justin December 25, 2020 at 2:17 pm

        I totally agree that a gun grab is not in their best interest, and so that is not likely. I also think there will be no mandatory vaccination, but they will bribe people or cut off their government aid, or require a passed Covid test for a ‘travel permit’, in order to ‘coerce’ them into the vaccine. In other words, they will use financial coercion, not physical coercion.
        Your suggestions for side stepping this are all great, and we should implement as many of them as possible. That third option you mentioned is definitely the best one!

        As you also mentioned, it seems that they are worried that they are losing control, so they went all out in desperation to retain their control. They probably did over extend themselves, since they are in a do or die desperation to survive. Any ‘Covid-19’ vaccine will be ineffective against any new ‘Covid-21’ virus, so this shows how desperate they are. The same for flu vaccines that are always 1-2 years behind the current strain, and why they are not very effective in any given year. Viruses are a moving target, with the ‘odds’ not favorable for any vaccine.

        Ever since this global take over started in March, I have approached it as a criminal investigation. As most criminal investigators would, I suspected foul play from the beginning.
        I have collected far more than enough evidence to support that foul play is involved in every aspect of this massive crime. The problem is that there are too many crimes involved, with too many co conspirators and partners in crime for any single investigator to investigate.
        Fortunately, we have several teams of investigators to investigate and expose every aspect of this massive tangle of crimes. Correlating and connecting all of the pieces is next.

        • B. Frank January 3, 2021 at 8:19 am

          Yes, and – People need to be aware that the vaccine manufacturers, those administering vaccines, and those mandating them (government officials), and those enforcing mandates are all protected from any harm those vaccines cause. Even if permanent disability results from receiving a vaccine. Or your child dies as the result of receiving one.


          Vaccine manufacturers have the ideal business model:
          – Much of the cost of development of childhood vaccines, flu vaccines, and now COVID vaccines has been paid for by the public.
          – For vaccines recommended by the CDC and required by States for school attendance, etc, Big Pharma has no marketing costs. (Overall, Big Pharma corporations spend more on advertising than on Research & Development.)
          – For all vaccines recommended by the CDC, the manufacturers have no liability.
          The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is funded by the public. This violates our Constitutional Right to take those who have done us harm to court and sue for damages – and removes essentially all incentive for Big Pharma corporations to make their products safe. (In spite of systemic efforts to stifle reporting of vaccine injury, and the difficulty of proving long-term harm, the NVICP has paid out many MILLIONS.

          1. Civil engineers, not vaccines, produced the large gains in life expectancy over the 20th century.

          Guyer et al. (2000) reviewed a century of annual vital statistics for the U.S. and found that about 90% of the decline in infectious disease mortality among U.S. children occurred before the introduction of mass vaccination campaigns. The large gains in life expectancy over the twentieth century were mostly the result of the construction of water and sewer systems, improvements in food safety, hand washing, improvements in housing, and decreased crowding in U.S. cities.

          (And penicillin, of course. Along with a few other antibiotics, though misuse and over-use have been decreasing their effectiveness.)

          Obviously, the push to make multiple doses of multiple vaccines mandatory – in addition to the 70-some doses of multiple vaccines, including those for which there is little or no risk (hepatitis vaccines given to newborns even if the mother is negative, and vaccines for illnesses that are virtually never fatal in otherwise healthy people not living in abject poverty)… multiple injections of any vaccine increases the risks.

          This new mRNA containing vaccine is a totally new type of vaccines (as far as we are being told) that has never even been tried in animals. WE are the guinea pigs.

          Bottom line: What can we do to protect ourselves and our families?

    Brandon interestingly enough the Georgia run off election is on Jan 5th to determine who controls the senate, and congress votes to certify the upcoming president on January 6th. If Biden does get in wouldn’t they want total Democrat control of government. House, Senate and Presidency. They’ve overplayed they’re hand for sure

      Here is their publicly documented plan for ‘Preparing’ for the fraud election from September 2019.

      Now here is their updated version of that document from August 2020, ‘Preventing’ the fraud election.

      Hmm, are they as suspicious to you as they are to me?

    • B. Frank January 3, 2021 at 11:00 am

      Regardless of who wins, or supposedly wins, elections, Congress as well as the presidents, have been violating the Constitution and our Rights for a long time. And/or allowing the Constitution and our Rights to be violated by government agencies and officials, and corporations.

      It got worse after 9/11. Wars and the ‘war on drugs’, etc have been used as excuses. Now a virus – though our bodies have been fighting off viruses since our first ancestors.

      No election is secure where electronic voting machines are used, or official results are
      compiled electronically. Nor can such votes or results be verified to have been free of tampering.

      Securing votes cast by mail or dropped into a box… How could that even be done? Especially if we are to maintain the secret ballot? Whoever is in office can be manipulated – yet there was ZERO reason for any continuing masks, or un-social distancing, or avoiding voting in person (except for the small percentage of people who are immune-suppressed, or those both elderly and with pre-existing conditions, or otherwise of fragile health).

      From the CDC’s own (inflated) data:
      For ages 0-19 years, the survivability rate is 99.997%.
      For ages 20-49, the survivability rate is 99.98%.
      For ages 50-69, the survivability rate is 99.5%.
      For ages 70+, the survivability rate is 94.6%.

      Regardless of who is declared the winner of whatever election, it is up to us to hold OUR public servants accountable. Hold them to their Oaths of Office to UPHOLD the Constitution – of our States and our federation of States.
      Harder to do when we can’t visit their offices and look them in the eye… and the powers that be knew this. Still, we must stand up for our country, our families, our neighbors, and our Liberties. Before it is too late.

      This could be done without martial law, using the insurrection act…if…he has the proof, and goes after specific targets associated with said proof …

      Insurrection act does not suspend constitutional law. It is used to enforce rights, which the states refuse to enforce themselves, been used many times in US, in support of our constitutional rights.

      Interestingly, seems the courts and state have been given plenty of time, yet failed to act, despite plenty of evidence of voter rights being…..abused.

      Of course….keeping the misinformed masses from burning the joint down …better be some indisputable proof.

        Unfortunately, Trump is surrounded by globalists within his cabinet and any use of the Insurrection Act would undoubtedly lead to full blown martial law and the erasure of the Bill Of Rights. Trump is not important. Biden is not important. This is not a fight between them, this is a fight between liberty minded people and the globalists. Trump is NOT going to save us from that fight, and neither will martial law.

          An excellent article. I have been saying many of these same things for a while. The boards are filled with calls for Martial Law or Insurrection Act. WHO are these people, and have they considered the ramifications of that. THIS response of yours is also a KEY FACTOR to the equation. Henry Kissinger has been on my mind, sadly, and his prediction of the US begging for UN boots on the ground. Off topic but related. — Does Godzilla mean anything to you?

            Some of them are well meaning and have simply been misled, but I believe others are paid provocateurs trying to create a false consensus. From what I can tell with the people I have talked to personally, almost no one supports the martial law idea; maybe 1 out of 20. I think there is an internet propaganda campaign to convince conservatives to support it and abandon the Bill of Rights in the process.

          Well…prior to 2016 the agenda was moving right along, quietly, steadily, deforming our country.

          Trump has stood up against globalization, made the term “fake news” a household term, stood up and spoke out against said fake news and section 230, NOT started new wars, spoke out against the shipping of american jobs to slave-wage China, and now he is standing up for free and fair elections.

          That is significant, no?

          Where does the future take us without free and fair elections?

          So…I respectfully disagree. Trump Is a true patriot….the only reason we have any resistance to the globalist take over at all in 2020, is because of Donald Trump.

          But yes, we must watch for a double cross, and WE must hold Trump accountable to the constitution. We cannot let this movement be misdirected in any unconstitutional direction. We also cannot accept blatantly fraudulent elections.

            Unfortunately, you have been conned. Rhetoric is not the same as action. If Trump was truly anti-globalist, he would have removed the globalists within his own cabinet first. Trump is either oblivious or he is controlled. This is reality. The resistance started LONG before Trump ever showed up. Trump was a RESPONSE to the liberty movement gaining influence, he was not the cause in the slightest. Bloomberg even bragged back in 2016 that Trump would co-opt and destroy the liberty movement, an idea they were very happy with.

  • Gauntlet33 December 17, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    @Brandon, cool reference to the Eagles’ “Hotel California” song.
    Also, I agree that Patriots must band up together now “tit for tat” to through armed militias (“localized security” (as you put it) sounds so much better), and be ready to fight a defensive battle when the riots and/or martial law begin, which I believe will begin once the power goes down, which they’ll initially say is looting of stores for food, but will escalate for them to then send in the troops.
    My question is: Will the globalists (who declare themselves to be kings in this game) be captured and executed and wiped out, OR will only their pawns be taken where they live to try global domination again a few short decades from now? My gut tells me that most of the globalists will hide and be spared, but we’ll find out.
    Last, the irony of the secession movement reminds me of an actual marriage, where one wants to leave, but then is pissed off when the other pulls the trigger first.
    P.S. I said it before, and I think it’s worth repeating: We all need to make a list of our local mayors’, health department officials’, Sheriff’s, and governors’ home addresses, etc. so that if/when SHTF, we know where to go to “protest”.

      And I don;t see that happening since all sides are controlled by the Secret Societies (JFK).

  • Implied Violins December 17, 2020 at 7:24 pm

    Nice article, I agree, its time to get with your tribe and prepare to fend off the invasion. And thanks for reminding people about not getting on the martial law/”insurrection” train – I see people like Dave Hodges, “Jim Stone NSA”, Alex Jones, and Mike Adams of Natural News jumping on that bandwagon. It does make it easier to see who the real patriots are, at least.

    Being cynical as I am, I fully expect if that does happen, then all those “sealed indictments” “Q” has been talking about are probably for guys like us…and people STILL trust Trump. All he did was buy time for the elites to finish building our prison. The Russian BS, sex scandals, Supreme Court Justices, election crap, impeachment…it was all grand theater to keep people from seeing what was really going down: a carnival barker suckering the masses to distract them while his audience gets fleeced.

    ALL of this was about installing medical martial law. And I’m starting to think you may be right about enough people standing up to the vaccines to throw the elites into a panic. That alone may be enough to unite the nation against them, but I’ll not let myself get lost in “wishful thinking”.

      @Implied Violins, I agree with you on all your points.

      Also, although we obviously have to resist, disobey, and fight back, I tend to think that the globalists are so entrenched and committed to their quest for global domination that they won’t back off now and that they’re determined to go for it at all costs and will throw all available weapons and schemes of attack even at the risk of further being exposed. Dangerous times for sure, but I think freedom will prevail as it did when they last tried this during WWII.

    • Dawn December 19, 2020 at 10:59 am

      I to have noticed the tendency of those you mentioned to support the idea of martial law and calling for Trump to active the Insurrection Act. These folks are either stupid or useful idiots for the extreme leftists. In any case they all have large followings.

    If you don’t already have a friendship with your county sheriff, you should develop one ASAP. Then ask that sheriff to join so that they can learn how to legally defend YOUR constitutionally-guaranteed rights against over-reaching bureaucrats. If you know how to handle a weapon safely, the sheriff may choose to deputize you and many of the other patriots in your county at times when a larger defense is needed than just the sheriff alone.

  • Dan December 17, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    Why should we declare defeat and leave our nation. The radical traitors should be arrested and sent to a special place.. x communicated for ever. You can put them on a floating prison in the middle of the ocean. We had a sovereign confederacy. That will not work. We must eliminate the threat.

      Who said anything about “leaving”? Congregating and organizing is not leaving, it’s the exact opposite; it’s preparing for a fight. Also, eventually the elites will suffer consequences for their actions, but it will be on OUR TERMS, because martial law is a trap for fools. Support martial law and ultimate government power and you are only helping the globalists. You become the enemy of freedom.

      • Sam Calabrese December 21, 2020 at 10:49 pm

        Brandon well said great article. If trump is with the elites, martial law following the an insurrection act would then be beneficial for the elites?

    • B. Frank January 3, 2021 at 9:44 am

      Nor should we have to leave our State.

      The history is important, as the echos are rippling into our current time and situation.

      As all patriots know, the sovereign States formed an alliance for things like common defense. The States were not originally a division of a country, but a federation or coming together of the States so they could help each other against powerful opponents, like England, France, and Spain.

      Of course, there were those who pushed for more centralized power and control from the beginning.

      A lot more ground was lost in the middle of the 19th century, during a war that was not about slavery, but about the Rights of The People in those States- and Congress’ refusal to uphold the Constitution.

      Yes, it all came down to money, blocking and piracy on shipping to and especially from certain States that were sending their cotton to England and bringing back shiploads of goods- the import/export business. After the perfection and widespread adoption of the cotton gin, the price of wool produced and processed in the States north of the Mason-Dixon line, especially New England, crashed. Fine wool, comfortable for wearing against the skin, sold for the rough equivalent of >$100./lb. The few wool growers left in the USA today would be THRILLED to get $10./lb. Mill owners were furious that their factories were idle. They did not need many slaves, though there were slaves in the North, and slave running ships were owned by Northerners- the factory owners paid children and women less than it cost to keep a slave. And that does not factor in the purchase price.

      Obviously, the exploitation of anyone by anyone else is unacceptable – regardless of the excuse.

      Yet we should remember that the Confederacy did NOT start the War Between the States, aka the War of Northern Aggression. Nor was it a ‘civil war’. The States south of the Mason-Dixon line, after repeated attempts to resolve the problems through appeal to the government, did NOT try to overthrow the US government- which is the definition of a civil war. They simply left.

      Those who hold power today will be no less pleased about any State that attempts to leave now.

      Back then, the ‘Union’ sent their armies to invade the States that succeeded.
      When and only when the families of the North got tired of having their horses taken, and other property taken by the government for the war against those who dared to leave when their rights were abused,
      and when the families of the North got tired of losing their sons in the fight that not all of them were in favor of… then and only then was the cause of the abolishon of slavery raised as a way to pesuade the people of the federation to continue to sacrifice to fight the people of the confederation.



      Except a few incursions a few miles over the border for the purposes of self defense, the States that succeeded did not invade the Union. Didn’t burn their homes or cities, etc.

      The Confederates were not traitors. There was no ‘civil war’ (yet) in the USA. Gen. Lee had the chance to take Washington, D.C. early in the war but chose not to, since the goal of the Confederacy was NEVER to overthrow the USA, but once they felt they had no choice but to leave, they only wanted to be left alone to live their lives.

      Sound familiar?

      I don’t have time to cite references for all this, but I could if I had the time. Even ‘The New Yorker magazine ran a book review on yet another biography of Lincoln, which includes documentation that Lincoln did not really care about the issue of slavery directly. As each territory applied for Satehood, there was a fuss over whether that State would be ‘slave’ or ‘free’ – like the ‘red’ vs ‘blue’ States, it was about power and control.

      It was the Northern States that wanted the freed slaves to count not as a full man, not the Southern States. This is not intended in any way to excuse the institution of slavery.

      Or overlook the fact that, though tactics were used to prevent them from exercising it, black men had their right to vote legally recognized about a half century before women were ‘given’ the right to vote.

      This, in spite of the fact that most everyone knew that the words ‘man’ and ‘men’, ESPECIALLY when capitalized , meant every human. Those words come from the Latin ‘mannus’ for hand, not another appendage.

      “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men were created equal…” Not identical, but equal.

      While we have never fully brought into existence the ideals and the promises of our founding documents (the poem on the Statue of Liberty is not one of them), that does not mean that we should not hold ourselves and our elected and appointed officials to them.

    There are MANY patriots in the area, both homegrown and transplants, who moved to get on stronger ground, and we are ready to defend from leftist incursions. We need to be highly unified and active, as a team. Surely, we must hang together, or we will all hang separately.

    BALLS to the WALL – ACCEPT

    Too many slaves in this world
    Die by torture and pain
    Too many people do not see
    They’re killing themselves, going insane

    Too many people do not know
    Bondage is over the human race
    They believe slaves always lose
    And this fear keeps them down

    Watch the damned (God bless ya)
    They’re gonna break their chains (hey)
    No, you can’t stop them (God bless ya)
    They’re coming to get you
    And then you’ll get your

    Balls to the wall, man
    Balls to the wall
    You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
    Balls to the wall, balls to the wall

    You may screw their brains
    You may sacrifice them, too
    You may mortify their flesh
    You may rape them all

    One day the tortured stand up
    And revolt against the evil
    They make you drink your blood
    And tear yourself to pieces

    You better watch the damned (God bless ya)
    They’re gonna break their chains (hey)
    No, you can’t stop them (God bless ya)
    They’re coming to get you
    And then you’ll get your

    Balls to the wall, man
    Balls to the wall
    You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
    Balls to the wall, balls to the wall

    Come on man, let’s stand up all over the world
    Let’s plug a bomb in everyone’s ass
    If they don’t keep us alive, we’re gonna fight for the rights

    Build a wall with the bodies of the dead, and you’re saved
    Make the world scared, come on, show me the sign of victory
    Sign of victory, sign of victory

    If 50% of all Doctors and Nurses take the vaccine and there are major complications for all that took it at 6-12 months, who will be providing healthcare in this country?

    • Ron R December 19, 2020 at 10:51 am

      All the rest of us with medical/health care training. I’m sure globalists wouldn’t mind a crippling of our medical industry, as that would give them further ammo centralize that as well.

      • gauntlet33 December 19, 2020 at 11:44 pm

        @Ron R, I agree. I figure it’s a win for the globalists on many levels as they get to wipe out a big part of medical providers and those that survive can then attest to it working for them for the sheeple, and those that die will further be attributed as COVID deaths. It’s no wonder they’ve been designated as the first round of the proposed vaccinated.

        • Ron R December 21, 2020 at 10:55 pm

          Yes, and here’s something else to consider: The VAST majority of health care workers (CNAs, doctors, nurses [I am one], and others) are younger than the elderly set that is more likely to suffer the effects of covid-19. Most of those in the health industry are not at high risk (for dying from cv19 infection), and even if they did get the virus, most of us would never know it, as we’d be asymptomatic. If they really wanted to benefit humanity with the vaccine, why not start with the most vulnerable groups? Why not speak with families of residents in assisted living and nursing facilities? Probably because they are not really interested in saving the lives of the elderly, as that would run counter to their depopulation agenda. The elderly are expendable, not “viable economically,” as I’ve heard some say.

            You are right, they don’t care about OUR Elderly.

            It’s OUR side of the Balance Sheet that is being Decimated.

            They Just Culled the Very Elderly on Social Security in the Nursing Homes, Accounting for 70 – 80 Percent of the Plandemic Deaths.!!!!!

        • Justin December 25, 2020 at 6:21 pm

          Agreed, and the question those who refuse the vaccine need to ask is,
          how can they possibly infect those who do take the vaccine if it is supposed to prevent it?
          Yes, they don’t want to deal with such obvious logic.
          Anything else they spew forth is just their distraction from that basic logic.

    • el Gallinazo December 24, 2020 at 12:21 pm

      Since most medicine in the USA is Rockefeller medicine, if half the MD’s in the country went down with the virus, the health of the country would probably improve. That would be a sure thing with pediatricians with their 78 vaccines before the age of 5.

  • Mr. Crowley December 18, 2020 at 7:34 am

    One would like to believe that what you envision will work.
    “what they don’t want is for conservatives and moderates to form their own organizational resistance not beholden to any singular political figure or top down pyramid structure. Such organization is happening right now. Millions of liberty minded Americans are leaving leftist counties and states, taking their wealth and businesses with them, and going to more conservative regions where they feel they will be safer.”
    History has shown that there will be ‘pushback’ when those in power feel that the status quo is threatened and a show of force is required to reinforce control. Remember what happened to the Branch Davidians and those at Ruby Ridge (to name two fairly recent examples)…

  • Jon Apostolatos December 18, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Guys, I believe this is what is happening behind the scenes for the reset. This is NOT a conspiracy theory–just see the piece of the puzzle come together.

    1. As Brandon has shown many times, most investors are really stupid, and think that the Fed can print unlimited amounts of money to bail them out. The Fed actually gets its money through Treasury authorization. Mnuchin has asked the Fed to give back the money it has on hand, and ended 8 of the 12 programs to inject money into the economy.
    2. The Fed will be out of bullets soon and defanged. I wonder why?
    3. Now they want to limit the powers of the Fed over the latest stimulus bill. Why is that? Why are they all of the sudden saying that the Fed emergency measure should end now, when we are running straight into a wall?

  • J Bolton December 18, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    “What they don’t want you to consider is the third option – the people taking power for THEMSELVES and removing power from those who would abuse it.”
    Game, Set and Match, Brandon…kudos therefore.

    Indeed, there is – now – not a shred of common ground left existent between those who love the Freedom and Liberty envisioned by the Founders…and hence no further point in making efforts to ‘meet in the middle’, which is non-existant.
    Several times in the past few decades the notion of an actual State secession from the United States has been mused on – most notably by Texas – without that thought being given much shrift; NOW perhaps – just perhaps! – that idea might actually be duly considered as an actual alternative to the lunacy the Left is determined to ram down everyone’s – else’s – throat.
    “But when a long train of Abuses and Usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their RIGHT, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” (emphasis added at points…)
    Anyone who has ever read those words – even lightly or briefly – will remember from whence they came from. So, have we seen enough as yet to fully know what the opposing camp intends..or no? Dwell on it now, if you have not already done so…for very soon it will have become too late to act profitably in that sense. In short, there is a TIME to act, to preclude the Fall of Night ere it happens…and not after.
    As always, I am delighted to have amongst us a spokesman of Brandon’s ability…many such are yet needed to impell those undecided – gently – towards the Light. The notion of meeting force with force, slight for slight does indeed diminish us and allowing ourselves to be drawn onto a battlefield of THIER creation is the absolute worst thing I can imagine; one whose outcome is all but certain and wholly unfavorable.
    If we cannot live WITH those of that mindset, so be it! Then let US live apart and seperately…or ELSE. The Union our Forefathers created is clearly now Corrupted beyond recall, we should not allow any further energy be expended in attempting to revive a corpse; it is a fruitless endeavor.
    Instead, the recent idea of the “United American Counties” might be dwelt on – seriously – it’s necessities examined and considered closely; time is becoming short, exceedingly short…obviously. In the event that no one has noticed (yes, sarcasm!) The RED States comprise the bulk of the land area of the (once) United States and if an actual Secession – en masse – did occur, the the BULK of the natural resources of the country would be on OUR side; Agriculture, available Shale deposits, REFINERIES, etc. Frankly, I’d enjoy watching Biden/Harris attempt to run a country split in half by a Red wedge which leaves them with little other than an excess of ‘useless eaters’ and very little else.
    As a final thought here, IF the other side entertained the idea of Lincoln-type response to a demand for a peaceable Secession and responded accordingly, then I would like to point out a single salient point: the RANKS consist of our sons and daughters, our nieces and nephews…give THAT order and not only will OUR’S walk away from you, but they’ll also bring damn near everything they can lay thief hands on – military equipment – when they come in no small part due to the preponderance of military bases being in RED Country.
    Dwell on that for a bit…think THRICE, act ONCE.


    • Truth in Tension December 22, 2020 at 8:01 am

      Excellent comments on secession. The blue areas are based on a parasitic model, while the red areas are based on a productive model. The blue areas reduce freedom and eliminated individual property rights while the red areas increase freedom and protect property rights. These two opposing models / ideologies will never coexist in harmony.

      I liked your statement “The Union our Forefathers created is clearly now Corrupted beyond recall, we should not allow any further energy be expended in attempting to revive a corpse; it is a fruitless endeavor.”

      Brandon is correct American Patriots do not need President Trump or anyone in Washington. Secession has already begun by the thousands of people taking part in the mass exodus from blue areas to red areas. This trend will probably result in large areas eventually seceding from blue tyrannical areas and becoming part of red freedom areas. I believe it can be done in a peaceful manner, however, there is always the northeastern establishment and globalists central bankers that should remain a concern as they unanimously oppose freedom and property rights.

      The year 2021 is going to be a year of significant friction, however, this increase in friction may result in a significant awaking of the American Patriots.

  • Zdravko December 18, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    Brandon, I discovered you by chance. I was trying to find second opinion and was able to do that just because I persevered and found you on 6th page of G search (and I should be good at it). So, definitely not easy to find. This is my first post here. Two questions.

    (1) How real is this and is there a timeline? Short summary of a great video is that there is a coordinated attack on protein supply and shift to whatever they call meat these days
    (2) I am in SF Bay Area now. Work, as you can guess. I am not American yet, but chose to come here for variety of reasons other than poverty and standard of living. However, I am utterly unprepared for what is inevitable. I know math and software, not helpful for what is coming. Ironically, I have strong connection to land (my family still has a lot back there), but never truly learned how to work it (‘smart’ kids do not work land, so they were saying). Adopting that lifestyle now will create short term stress I may not survive. Long term, has to happen. What are the tips for someone like me? Which skills I need to acquire so I can feed my family through first 2-3 years until I actually learn something?

    Thank you again.

      Brandon Smith December 19, 2020 at 3:32 am

      Yes, I noticed around a year ago that Google started burying links that led to Alt-Market. You can still find them once in a while if you are willing to go several pages into a search. To answer your questions…

      1) I wrote an article not long ago about the globalist war on meat and animal protein in our diet. Yes, there is indeed a plan to remove animal protein in the name of “stopping global warming”. Meat protein contains several important enzymes that are impossible to reproduce in vegetable form, and these enzymes are known to increase cognitive function in the human brain. Our brains were actually tiny until we became omnivores and started eating meat, after which our brain evolution exploded and our intelligence grew exponentially. It is my belief that the globalists (the UN in particular has been on a crusade against meat in our diet) are trying to remove animal protein because within a couple generations this would make the average person less intelligent and easier to control. Here is my article on the subject:

      2) Your best option for now is to retain a location outside of the city that will be safer during a breakdown in rule of law. Next, stockpile necessities including bulk foods – At least a year’s worth to start with, more if you have the money. Finally, if possible, obtain a firearm and some ammo. I don’t know how if you aren’t a US citizen yet, and I’m not going to suggest how you should go about it; all I’m saying is you are going to need one. After doing all of this, you can then start focusing on skill sets. I would try to learn a trade skill that involves fixing useful items, such as small engines. Welding and fabrication would be another useful skill. Use the skill as a means to barter for items in the future, and over time you can learn to grow your own food if you have some land to do it. The most important step is to secure that first year of survival goods and finding a safe place to move you and your family if things go bad.

      • Zdravko December 19, 2020 at 10:20 am

        Thank you, Brandon. I am moving to a more conservative area, still in CA though. Not ideal, but probably better than here.

      • Automatic Feeder December 22, 2020 at 10:21 am

        I do stockpile some foods, but I think going forward it will be significantly more important to be able to produce food. That means more than just a garden.

        Probably the best cheap, easily renewable food resources are chickens and rabbits.

        The chickens can provide eggs daily and each bird will lay for at least two year with most laying eggs two out of every three days. You can hatch some of the eggs (takes 21 days) and they will be good eating in about 5 months.

        Rabbits reproduce like crazy and can have several litters a year, so a mating pair of rabbits can end up being a solid food source in a matter of a few months.

        We are now in the Post America world. Those who understand that and move on have the best chance of survival. And that starts by being able to feed yourself indefinitely with no outside help…

    • DaBuddha December 20, 2020 at 8:29 am

    I am one of those nurses who will under no circumstance take the vaccine. I have a business and have several nurses who work for me. I will require none of them to get the vaccine, although some of them would accept it as a condition of employment, but as I said, I will not require them to get it, and I actually discourage them from getting it.
    The work we do is mandated and supported by state regulators from the state’s DHHS office. If they require that I get the vaccine (and by extension require that our nurses also be vaccinated) before we can go into medical facilities to render the third party services that we provide, then we will lose our business, completely.
    I have a brother who stocks shelves at a local Walmart. I never thought I would see the day where he has more job security than I do.
    But whether or not I am supported by others, I’ll do what I know is the right thing.

  • Brad December 19, 2020 at 10:48 am

    The faux left (actually intolerant brown shirts in the service of the ‘cap’) of today are the captured descendants of a grassroots left that fought for and won many a battle, at great cost in lives, that bettered the lives of the working classes against a far right wing of combined industrialists and financial interests. This is a known history. However as that may have been that old left has been destroyed by nefarious means (all being fair in love and war) and what remains is a totally corrupted version given its mission statement by those same industrialists and bankers but with their now world spanning interests stated openly as the 4th industrial revolution, the great reset, sustainable development-global warming-biodiversity concern et al with all the disguise of feel good rhetoric that also serves as a means to and end. The spectrum of working class conservatives, from the professional to common workers. stood by and watched with glee as the old left was destroyed. Now the same forces which destroyed that old left is coming to destroy the conservatives using the new bastardized fascist ‘left’ as the battering ram. In fact in Britain it is called the New Left. While I fell sorry for the conservatives of today who will be sold out by the pragmatic self interests of elected conservative representatives, under grand political theater, it is my belief that those freedom loving conservatives must try and make contact with the few remaining freedom loving lefties to avoid being spun from both their more vital democratic principles into the waiting arms of the pyramid cap funded radicals on both ends of the spectrum. This as dialogue is destroyed and sides of the lesser evil have to be chosen. I’m a old leftie to some extent but also a reformed leftie and I see that I have much more in common with democracy and freedom loving conservatives under the threats seen today than any minor differences in comparison to the existential crisis of humanity’s survival against the anti human agendas of the metaphysical mistakes and their golden handcuffed minions that serve them. Bastions of freedom must have a large enough tent to accommodate all who choose human freedom and dignity over the very dark future being rolled out now. It is a game of numbers and our side needs all it can get. WE, underscored in neon, must also learn to organize OUR people to be effective. Saul Alinsky provided US the way to do this in his book ‘Rules for Radicals.” These rules are now in use against US at the local level and WE must learn to turn the tables and use those rules to regain what has been lost. Not easy when the likes of a soulless Sorros put over two million dollars in a county sheriff campaign but eminently winnable when the truth of the true nature of inalienable rights are understood as the gift that was given to human kind.

    Anyone have suggestions for low income people living in large cities, like NYC, that would like to move to more rural areas? People with no hunting/fishing skills, no backwoods skills, and no connections/relationships with anyone outside of where they now live?

      I would suggest finding a family member or good friend willing to move with you to a new area and then planning it out. If no one will move, then it really does not matter where you go, you could throw a dart at a map of the US and as long as you don’t land on a major city you would be better off than being in NY.

      @Bliss, I agree with Brandon, with the exception that if you’re going to move, then I would suggest moving south to be away from the extreme cold temperatures you’re in as there’s lots of very affordable housing in rural areas all the way down to Florida.

      • Bliss December 21, 2020 at 2:43 pm

          There is a great book by Joel Skousen that would help you evaluate where you may wish to move. I can’t recall the name of it right now, maybe someone else can post it here. Looks at stuff like cost of living, pop density, gubmint corruption, taxes, weather etc. Very useful book to have.
          My hubby and I used it to look at a lot of things before we moved from NE Ohio to NW Missouri. I would have looked harder at Montana but my hubby hates snow! That being said, we love our new, remote location with some many less people!

        Florida has a massive population, so I would avoid it. Also, a cold winter is not always a bad thing; it helps stop wandering looters from moving around too much.

        • Ted Baber December 21, 2020 at 8:36 pm

          I’ve read your articles for a long time and appreciate your work. Northwest Florida is not that densely populated and is strongly conservative. There is a lot of military representation here as well. I won’t give specifics about location but there are places to go here. Sorry, but I’m not a big fan of snow, either!

            I lived in NW Florida near Pensacola for several years; the problem is the population density is very high for the entire state, and that includes the NW. Also, it’s very flat, and warm year round; meaning, groups of looters and desperate migrants will have an incredibly easy time roaming the region looking for handouts (or easy targets). If you live in Florida then I guess you have to work with what you got, but as a preparedness expert I would never recommend people relocate there when there are so many better options in terms of safety and security.

        • Bliss December 22, 2020 at 1:27 pm

      Having lived in many different places throughout the US and internationally I’ve always kept a few rules on learning how to fit in.

      First: have a good sense of humor because that is how you’ll first be tested.

      Second: Be willing to pitch in and give a hand.

      Third: Keep your beliefs to yourself until you get a hand on the beliefs of the community.

      Fourth: Have good horse sense. People everywhere trust in it. So do horses and all other animals.

    As a homeschool Mother with two children and a husband who is retired military but works as a contractor we are desperate to find like minded Patriots. We have many here in Arizona, but as the Nation watched we were flipped from red to blue in November on Fraud Night. Our Governor has really shown his RINO side and rolled over and now we are at a impasse. We are trying to decide if we stay here and attempt to hold out with our friends who are just like us, or leave. Ideally I would love to just drop everything and head North to find fellow Patriots but that would mean leaving work and our home . We have been stock piling and preparing for what we knew was coming when Bush Sr. Mentioned the “New World Order” back in 1990. We ramped it up on 9/11 and ramped it up again the day Obama stepped foot in office.
    I guess I am just asking for your input. What is the best way to go about finding a group of like minded people in our area? We know they are out there but obviously will not search for militias online. People are pretty tight lipped at the gun range, understandably so. So if and when you have time I would appreciate your input.
    Thrilled to have found your article. I have scouring the internet looking for every Patriot I can find. I found Matthew Bracken on a podcast link off ZH and was intrigued as he did a talk about the coming civil unrest and what he thinks it will look like.
    Sorry abou the long post just looking for any help and guidance. We are a retired military family that loves our Nation, Children and fellow Patriots and just want to be able to survive the future collapse.

      I would stay where you have close friends and family, no need to move. You are relatively safe where you are. I would not be fooled by the supposed “flip” of Arizona, as long as you are not in a major city it is likely the vast majority of the people around you will be conservative. In order to find people to organize with, you would have to create a venue for people to meet. I started a gun and preparedness group that meets every couple of weeks; you could do the same. Or, if you know a person that is willing to head up such a group and plan the meetings then let them handle it and support them if they need it. My thinking is, if you build it, the patriots will show up. Maybe not many at first, but as this crisis escalates, more and more will be looking to organize. Make it open to the public and avoid any discussion of private preps or anything that could be construed as violent felony activity. Information and organization is all that is important. Resistance strategies come later when the time calls for them.

    • Gauntlet33 December 22, 2020 at 10:06 am

      @Hope, first, I totally agree with Brandon…stay where you are where you already have a job and connections.

      Also, a little off topic for other readers, I’ve been asking my mom to promise for the past 6 months to not take the vaccine. Here’s an email I just sent her, but I’m pretty sure she’ll just do it anyway:

      “Hey mom, I know you think we’re crazy, but I’ll say it anyway. 
      Since you’re asking, I believe that lots of these nurses and doctors will get sick and die after they take the vaccine.
      [In response to why the Republicans are now taking it] My wife and I keep telling you that it’s all “political theater” — the Republicans and the Democrats are two sides of the same coin and both sides are controlled by the globalists bankers who own almost the entire world. And all these high ranking politicians like Marco Rubio are only pretending to take the vaccine. The one that is given to the population will kill millions…Just keep your eyes open and you’ll see that people will get sick and die only after they take the vaccine.

      Love you”

      I previously sent her an email saying that I don’t want her to take the vaccine as I don’t want to have to tell her young granddaughters that grandma, grandpa, and “unckie” can no longer see them because they are dead because they didn’t listen when we asked them not to take the vaccine. I want our last few years to be joyous and peaceful, but the brain-washing is so deep. I’m sure they’ll all take it as the “rabbit hole” of truth scares them.

    What I see in this Marxist movement is that ANTIFA, BLM and others are being use as pawns to start a civil war, and groups like Proud Boys are being nudged to engage; as you stated, a civil war or martial law only benefits the Marxist. We should not engage as a civil war but as a Revolution, our real enemies are Fauci, Gates, Soros, Zuckerberg, Mayors in our own towns, Health Departments in our own Counties, Governors and the Marxist in DC. Those are the real targets not the distraction they are putting in our way. Look over here, look over here BLAMMM! you have just been hit.

    Three (3) Economic Collapses in Two (2) Decades.

    2000 – Dot Com Tech Bubble Collapse.
    2008 – Bankster Mortgage Bubble Collapse.
    2019 – Everything Bubble Collapse.

    Where in the Summer 2019 the FED Got Caught Bailing Out the Banksters in the Repo Market & Had to Immediately Reverse Course from Raising Interest Rates to Immediately Lowering Them to Almost Zero. Five – Six Months Later Comes the CoronaVirus Plandemic as the Scapegoat.

    The FED used the Filthy Rich Politicians & Billionaires to Shut Down the Economy to Crush the Small Business’s, Mom N Pop Stores & Church’s as Non-Essential – But They Saved the Too Big Too Fail/Jail Corporations & Banksters Where They Have All Their Investments with Trillions in Taxpayer Bailouts (Again)….. No AUDITS Once Again….MSM & Controlled Opposition Alt Media Are Gatekeepers.

    Pretty Obvious the FED Are Trying to Save Their Side of the Balance Sheet & No Longer Care At All For Our Side of the Balance Sheet.

    I am a nurse whose husband was injured by a prescription medication. We have been living in the alt healthcare world since 2012 and he is alive today because of what we learned. We were also both injured by vaccines, in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. We will never take another vaccine. We will never comply with the current mandates. We are not outspoken unless asked about our methods because we live in a urban, socialist/leftist community. Moving is not an option for us. We have been hoarding supplies since Obummers first term. We will quietly do whatever it takes to survive. There is no saviour, save Jesus, coming to the rescue. No one in healthcare, the government nor liberal family members that are coming to help us. Trump is a fading hope. The constitution is defunct-It died a slow death. Our country has been taken over. Having said this, going forward there must be an underground of Patriots that stick together through inter-relational support of each other via alternative systems of economics, electronic communication, healthcare, and community of faith. There is always a way out of “their” control. We just have to be smart about it. Martial law, civil unrest and anarchy is not the answer. Preparedness and critical thinking are an answer. Thank you for your articles. BTW, The link from ZH to you is dead. Google won’t let you be found. Soon we will be isolated in the internet world as well. We are not on any social media but Parler, but for how long will this venue be “free” from tyranny?

    • anonymous December 24, 2020 at 8:28 pm

      i agree with you 100 percent. I am sorry you were injured by vaccines – God revealed to me right before I had my daughter that I should neither give her any nor take any myself. I live in a leftist community too and God has not released us to leave this place. I wish I could band together with other patriots but I don’t know how to get to them. I left another comment below to Brandon suggesting a mass email list, as pedestrian as that sounds, it’s better than being on Facebook and giving Zuckerberg access to our plans. I don’t want to play on their terms anymore anyways. I haven’t been on any form of social media since 2009 – again, something God revealed to me. He reveals all things! Don’t give up hope, He is with us and no weapon formed against us shall prosper.

    The elite who control the liberal-left are hellbent on taking humanity down a soul-destroying collision course. The entire Establishment has arrayed themselves on the side of the liberal-left, but I believe we oppositional forces have 4 hallmarks that indicate we will ultimately prevail (hopefully in my lifetime):
    * TRUTH — the evidentiary facts
    * PATRIOTISM — love and respect for our home, our country — notwithstanding its many faults
    * SPIRITUALITY — belief in God, Spirit, Allah, Grandmother Spiderwoman — whatever you call the Universal Divine
    * COMMON SENSE — the ability to be independent thinkers and not accept at face value what the oligarchs tell us

    Hey Brandon,
    What about starting some kind of private email list with patriots’ emails all over the nation that are willing to band together? I don’t want to use Facebook or those technocrat public mediums – i see them as part of the problem and are another form of current tyranny. Here in Oregon I don’t know many conservatives, at least not in my town, but I would definitely want to join something like what your article is describing. I just don’t know where to begin – is a (very) mass email or perhaps a newsletter an option? What if we just started collecting names and numbers?

      I think it’s better to focus on organizing locally first. The liberty movement has been stifled by the idea that we need to organize “nationally” and through the internet, when we will never be able to do that without organizing our own communities beforehand. I am working on an idea now that I think will help in terms of keeping patriots in contact and informed even during a crash, but for now you should work on getting your friends and neighbors on the same page.

    Hey Brandon,

    Merry Christmas!!!!

    One comment

    For people moving to / living in remote areas to generate income sell products you make / source locally online on websites like Etsy.

    Buy / make local, see global.

    Few examples would be source items from old farms, houses, etc. Fix up sell online.

    If you make your own soap sell it online, quilts, clothing, boots, the possibilities are endless.

    If anyone has questions post back to this article and I will help how I can.
