What If the Next Major Cyberattack Targeted the Internet?

July 9, 2021

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

Over the past few months I have been writing analysis on a planned crisis war game organized by the World Economic Forum called “Cyberpolygon.” The event will be held this week on July 9th, and it’s allegedly designed to simulate a massive cyberattack that somehow disrupts the global supply chain, or at the very least disrupts the supply chain of multiple large economies.

Why am I so interested in this war game? Well, many of my readers will recall that the last major simulation the WEF and the Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation held was Event 201, a global pandemic exercise which portrayed a coronavirus outbreak spread by animal carriers to humans killing millions of people while forcing the shutdown of multiple first-world economies. Event 201 was scheduled for October 2019 – two months later the exact pandemic scenario they simulated happened in real life, save a few minor details.

Klaus Schwab, the head of the WEF, was very quick to exploit the COVID-19 outbreak as a rationale for the “Great Reset” agenda: A socialist reconstruction of the world’s financial system and political structure that globalists have been clamoring for since at least 2014. Truly, the biggest beneficiaries of the pandemic were the same people that simulated the outbreak only months beforehand during Event 201.

So, of course many people are beginning to wonder if lightning will strike twice for the globalists at the WEF. Will there be a large scale cyberattack that brings down the international supply chain within the next few months? Will there be another miraculous coincidence that destabilizes the world’s trade systems and creates social strife?

Cyber-terrorism is already disrupting the economy

There have already been a few disturbing near-crisis cyberattacks in the past month.

The Colonial Pipeline attack as well as the JBS meat packing attack both had the potential to cause severe supply chain disruptions. The pipeline attack in particular could have created a panic environment had it continued for any longer than a week. Imagine if there was no gasoline to fuel the freight trucks that transport the majority of goods and raw materials across the US for half a month or more? It would be a nightmare, as a majority of Americans have no preparedness supplies and are stocked with no more than a week’s worth of necessities.

That said, I have been considering the adaptability of western supply chains to a cyber event and I’m not so sure another pipeline attack or a similar sabotage would actually harm us for very long. If the goal of the attackers was to create maximum damage, then another target would have to be found. I have been pondering this question for a while now, and it finally dawned on me that the supply chain does not need to be attacked directly in order to break it.

The Fastly outage and Cyberpolygon

Recently when Klaus Schwab commented on the coming Cyberpolygon simulation, he stated that the next cyberattack would be like a “cyber pandemic” far worse in destructive scale when compared to covid. I realized that the next crisis may not need to involve resource manufacturers or suppliers; rather, what if the next cyberattack was on the internet itself?

Let me explain – In June of this year there was an internet outage event that led to large swaths of the web going dark, including a number of mainstream news sites, Amazon, eBay, Twitch, Reddit and a host of government websites went down. All this happened when content delivery network (CDN) company Fastly experienced a bug. Although Amazon had its website back online within 20 minutes, the brief outage cost the company over $5.5 million in sales (and that’s just one website!).

Fastly identified and fixed the problem within two hours, and continues to claim the outage had nothing to do with a cyberattack. However, it did reveal a huge vulnerability for the internet (what von Clausewitz would’ve called a schwerpunkt). A large portion of the web is dependent on only three CDN companies, including Fastly.

Here is what concerns me: If there was a cyberattack on such weak points in the web, and the attack involved a malicious worm or other highly infectious weapon, then Klaus Schwab could very well get his “cyber pandemic.”

The internet plays a much bigger role in daily life than you might think.

Payment networks, supply chains, distribution and communication

Consider for a moment the vast array of economic functions that are now tied directly to the internet, including the supply chain, retailers, information services and even the stock market. If vital pillars of the web were crippled for weeks on end, an economy already weakened by a year of covid lockdowns might not recover.

So what does the internet power? Professor Matthew Zook of the University of Kentucky has a list:

  • Communications (“Ham operators would be kings!”)
  • Banking and finance, including the stock market (“The gold bugs would be feeling very smug…”)
  • Transportation, traffic lights, airlines, some railways and ports (“The entire logistics industry would be in shambles.”)
  • Utilities: electrical grids and water (“I think sewer systems would still work…”)

The internet really is everywhere.

For a high-level overview of the consequences of a total internet failure, Professor Mark Graham at Oxford Internet Institute offers this summary:

If the entire internet was shut down, we would witness an almost immediate global economic collapse. The internet is the nervous system of contemporary globalization. Explicitly digital interactions [like] core banking and payment networks, and so on. But then, even parts of the economy that initially seem relatively disconnected would begin to grind to a halt because of the fact that all contemporary societies rely on long-distance supply chains, and long-distance supply chains rely on the internet. [emphasis added]

“Almost immediate global economic collapse.” That’s frightening.

That part about long-distance supply chains might not sound so important, until you consider that most people live in cities. Most food is not produced in cities. Supply chains get a lot more important when you’re hungry.

Professor Graham continues, “if there are two things that are guaranteed to cause chaos in the contemporary economy, it is an inability for food to be distributed and an inability for people to access money and the banking network.”

Sit with that for a moment. If you had no food and no money, what would you do?

Cui bono?

Consider who would benefit from this scenario and how they would benefit. Just as covid was used as an excuse to quarantine the public from economic participation, and businesses that were deemed “non-essential” were locked down, a cyber pandemic could also be used as a means to forcefully isolate parts of the web that governments do not like.

Alternative news sites like mine could simply be deemed a potential “cyber infection hazard” and shut down while controlled and agreeable mainstream news sites continue to spread propaganda.

The biggest failing of the Great Reset agenda has been that the alternative media exists. We have been effectively countering disinformation about the necessity of the lockdowns. We have also helped to expose the Wuhan lab debate.

The globalists will have to shut us up somehow, and it seems like a cyberattack on the key mechanics of the web might be the trick they need. Or at the very least, they would be grateful for any further “coincidences” that cause their critics to suffer and go silent.

Chance favors the prepared

I suggest that readers watch out for the possibility of a global internet collapse, and prepare accordingly. I imagine any people disenfranchised by internet exclusion would have to turn to alternative technologies such as HF ham radio, digital packet modems and ham based internet systems like AMPRnet or Winlink. As a General Class ham I can say that these are probably our best options for a future in which the internet is no longer available or safe for communications.

Possibly ham internet networks could be adapted for transactions, matching buyers and sellers, and could fill in at some level for broken supply chains.

I also would be wary of relying on cryptocurrency systems during an internet-wide cyberattack. Physical commodities like gold and silver coins would be essential as universal currencies in a world where digital trade is either highly unstable or highly restricted according to your politics or a refusal to comply with various mandates.

Maybe nothing will happen in the next few months. Maybe the WEF’s Event 201 was a fluke. Maybe Cyberpolygon will come and go without much fanfare and the warnings of this article will be treated like “doom and gloom” or “chicken little” paranoia.

Maybe not.

What I do know is that there has been a considerable uptick in the scale of cyberattacks and disruptions just in the past month, and I know that there are certain people out there that would find great benefit in another global crisis so close to the covid pandemic.

Imagine waking up one day and discovering that your internet access is completely cut off and the only sources you can go to for information are CNN or MSNBC. Imagine how a frozen internet would undermine thousands of retailers and freight networks. The effect would be almost the same as if someone deliberately shut down the electrical grid or hobbled multiple gas pipelines. It’s a possibility we should consider.

    The same folks at the WEF who will be behind a major cyberattack, want to abolish cash and replace it with cryptocurrencies. Seriously. Do they really think they can fool all people all of the time?

    • Dave July 9, 2021 at 6:08 pm

      That’s what cyberpolygon is about. Their web site is telling you what they plan to do. They don’t care whether or not we’re fooled because they know we can’t do anything about it.

  • bhk4usa July 9, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I am very happy not to live in a major urban center. Those cesspools are almost entirely infested with DEMONcRATs that are entirely incapable of providing anything for themselves or others. Just imagine what those urban centers will turn into when they loose water, food, fuel and power. Then the rats will attempt to flee their sinking cities in order to take from those in rural areas. Be ready and prepared to drive off hordes of varmints.

    BTW, your sewers may or may not work depending on the type of system. If you have a septic system in your yard you may be fine (as long as you do not have a ‘smart’ sewage ejector pump). If you are connected to ‘city sewer’ you may or may not be fine depending on what type of system the ‘city’ has, how it is configured, and where you are located on that system.

    Another internet connected ‘system’ that many people do not think about is their ‘smart’ home. How many people have been sold over recent years on making their new homes smart. For these people almost everything electric and some things not electric (door locks) are connected to and controlled through the internet. Their have been many homes where absolutely nothing works when the internet ‘goes down’ and there are no manual bi-passes.

    The modern Internet is a far cry from the original ARPANET concept of nuke-survivable network. It’s becoming a centralized monoculture. Fewer and fewer peering points among Tier-1 networks, increased reliance on cloud providers in a small number of large datacenters, outsourcing to monolithic SaaS for critical business logic, BGP vulnerabilities etc.

    With the modern structure of the Internet it’s entirely possible that an attack could be focused on a particular continent such as North America or Europe while leaving other parts largely untouched. Just like China suffered less from covid than western economies, a cyber attack could take out Amazon, Azure and Cisco hardware, while leaving Baidu, Alibaba and Huawei unaffected. Presto, American decline and Chinese ascendancy is complete.

  • JustOneGuy July 9, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    I’ve dwelt on the critical relevancy of the Internet to virtually every part of today’s way of Life for some time and frankly if that were successfully nullified the ramifications would mount up very, very quickly indeed.
    A mere 25 years ago it would have severely inconvenienced everyone if the phone company lines failed but it wouldn’t have halted Civilization…as would almost certainly be the case now. Some time back, a paper which can be had online via simple google search titled, Tradeoff.pdf authored by Kozlowski (if memory serves…) looked at JUST the interconnection between the JIT (Just in Time) logistics system and the financial services sector…and explored the ramifications of a significant disconnect between the two.
    The paper is rather long at over 70 pages and his verbage is VERY specific…I had to re-read it multiple times before grasping his full thesis and analysis. I could not find fault with either.
    In a nutshell, he laid out an analysis which asserted directly that any such occurence would have extremely severe consequences – Regionally, Nationally or Globally – according to the range of effect, in around 7-10 days; in his words (beyond that point) “Irreperable Harm” to the economies involved.
    In truth, the modern Telecomm system is effectively irreplaceable in terms of the traffic it carries…and the heavy reliance on and traffic conducted through such via the Internet now only compounds the magnitude of any serious disruption thereof.
    I spent twenty plus years in the Army Signal Corps and multichannel comms though easy to operate simply REQUIRE specialized equiptment not available to the general public. To wit, Multichannel Multiplexers (Time domain Multiplexers) and various actual transmission systems; UHF (34M MOS), LOS (Line of Sight), Troposcatter and SatCom (26Q MOS) Microwave.
    The LOS systems are generally limited to 30-50 miles, Tropo maxes out around 250-280 miles and SatCom is effectively unlimited in range due to the satellite uplink.
    If the Freedom Lovers in this country have a single overwhelming weakness it lies in our reliance on the backbone communications provided by Globocorp.
    HF can be used as auxiliary comms but simply doesn’t possess the requisite bandwidth for mass communication. Yes, it is a quandry… one for which I have no good solution to offer.
    However – that said – your greatest asset lies in being SELF-SUFFICIENT and having a cadre of competent neighbors ready to intercede on your behalf at a moment’s notice.
    Self-sufficiency includes but is not limited to food and water access (in a long term sense) but also in the ability to create your own “Micro-Grid” to serve your electrical needs. There is a REASON why the people of the 1800’s tended to live short, brutal lives; without electricity there’s no refrigeration – at a minimum – little light at night, yada, yada, yada.
    Solar can certainly assist satisfying that need but simply can’t be relied on 24/7, season to season. For that you absolutely NEED an adequate generator and the bad news there is that gens based on gasoline ran extensively will not last, period. Diesel is honestly the only on-demand power that can be ran long-term under continuous significant load. Point in fact, those LIKE being kept at a 70-80 percent load range and can readily sustain such for several thousand hours of operation (and much longer if you’re saavy)…IF YOU DO THE REQUIRED MAINTENANCE on schedule without fail. PERIOD.
    By comparison, a Gas-based gen under that sort of sustained load will most often be dead after 1200 or so hours.

    Good luck to everyone, things are likely to get REAL fairly soon; be READY or be DEAD.

  • Ron R July 9, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    “The biggest failing of the Great Reset agenda has been that the alternative media exists.” And this is exactly why suspicion of Cyberpolygon is warranted. It is also why I fully believe that internet disruption on a MASSIVE scale is inevitable. We’ve been told it will happen. Ever since Klaus told us it “will” happen on a scale that will make covid seem like a mere “disturbance,” I knew the internet would take it on the chin, and in ways that will be permanent. There is no disruption of any system, pipeline, producer, or supply chain that, in itself, could cause the havoc the WEF has forecast. But the internet itself… different story.

    The USA will be “infected” and affected severely, as we are practically the only “first world” nation to flip off the WEF with our refusal, among many of us, to cower in fear and agree to get injected with an experimental gene therapy cocktail.

    I’m telling you that I’m one of the least “conspiracy” types you would ever meet. I used to be far more inclined to assume the best about people, despite my own faith which teaches that the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. I was one of those guys who called other people “conspiracy theorist!” But the year of the covid has taught me well. It taught me that the political, medical, educational, media, social, and tech establishments are corrupted beyond repair and they are not redeemable. They all have a seat at that table, and NOTHING they do would surprise me.

    We WILL have a massive internet collapse, likely this year, or soon afterward, and we WILL see far bigger changes than covid mitigation measures brought. They are going to go for it. They want it all and they are about to pull the plug on everything. The collapse will not be all-encompassing at the beginning. Like the “cyber pandemic” they are preparing for, the “virus” in THAT pandemic worms its way through the system so that we’ll probably see internet “brown outs” and blackouts, in various parts of the world, seemingly unrelated at first, but then quickly followed by sudden collapse of global finance, communications, and transportation. Utilities will not be the main target initially. I believe people can adapt better these days with utility problems than they could do without their smart phones. You want to plunge the world into chaos? Close the banks, suspend Wall Street, shut down transportation with its lights and signals, cell phone towers, and the ability to buy and sell on the internet, and you would have instant chaos.

    Afterward, it will be “discovered” that the cyber attacks conveniently came from the very places that predicted them in the first place, like the alt media, conservatives, Qanon, Republicans, etc., and all the small fry websites will be hunted to extinction. The government is already predictively programming how bad all these conservative groups are and how we are America’s #1 terrorist concern. They KNOW it’s about to go down, and they’re setting up the patsy. Be ready.

      Looks like you took a while to wake up. Welcome to the real world. Until those still asleep finally awake, we are at risk. Our job is to awaken them.

      • Ron R July 10, 2021 at 12:48 pm

        I’d say I was semi-conscious, not fully awake or asleep. The thing is, I was teachable. I don’t buy into anything without evidence, and I need to trust the source of that evidence, so that keeps me from believing every conspiracy people think up. The problem is that most people, from what I can tell, are simply not teachable. There are some who are asleep and can be awakened; they are teachable. They really want to know the truth of a matter, no matter where it leads, but most just want to hold onto the reality of their own choosing.

    As a person who was born in 1948, having no internet or even a cell phone until I was an adult, I think those of us in this group have already considered this scenario for some time now. I have witnessed, as most of you have, that people are entirely reliant upon the internet for most things. There was a post on my local blog that our electrical company is adjusting Smart thermostats that people bought and installed here in California. How stupid can people be? Very.

    There can be unlimited conversations about “what if’s” but the smart person sets up their lifestyle to not be dependent on any kind of power, whether it be solar or gen.

    This week we saw Wells Fargo eliminate personal lines of credit. The smart person keeps all their credit cards maxed out at this point. Let them be the ones left holding the bag. Better bird in hand, than in bush.

  • bluebird July 10, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    @Davilyn – I was born in 1949. I’m sure I could get by without the Internet or cell phone for a few days or week(s). What I worry most about is the power grid suffering a cyber attack and there would be no electricity for weeks. Probably only a few people who would not need any kind of power – electric, solar, battery, or generator.

    The internet is the fulcrum. It has so many pay offs for them it will definitely be destroyed. It is witness to all they crimes. Getting rid of it will give complete cover for the many crimes they have committed. Once internet 1.0 is gone, so goes all the data. You know the thing, election fraud, banking fraud, FED fraud, science fraud, MSM lies, plandemic fraud, death tallys from vaccidents, and of course, the details of those movers and shakers responsible for it all. Beautiful.
    When you can’t even prove you own the house you just spent 40 years paying for, or the stonks in Tesla you so enthusiastically bought at the top of the market can’t ever be located, the truly masterful nature of their plan is revealed. It is Diabolical. So, yes, I strongly believe Internet 1.0 is going down.

    I for one won’t miss it, but I will miss convenient access to banking, ATM’s and everything else. The gen Xer’s and the Millenials will take it a lot harder, and will have existential breakdowns en masse without their smartphones. They will be totally hamstrung without their tik tok and Facebook. They will resemble the living dead as they struggle to comprehend what the hell just happened to their lives.

    Eventually, after immense societal pain, they will re-boot with Internet 2.0…..and we’d better hope the ‘good guys’ control it, because if not, it’s over for all of us.

    One thing does occur to me ….a benefit of a total internet loss is that they go blind when we go blind… might give a window of opportunity for defensive action of a variety of kinds.

    In the film Bladerunner 2049 it is referred to, as in “Everyone remembers where they were during the Blackout. You?”….10 days darkness, everything stopped cold”. That’s a total data loss, and the film uses it as a marker in the history of man. Hope to see some of you on the other side….or maybe not. Good luck and God Bless…

      I thought the same thing re: 2049. There is a lot of predictive programming going on in that direction…The episodic Mr Robot comes to mind. (Essentially a lone hacker crashes the interwebs.) I think all the preamble and foreplay is just a way of grooming the public for the “See? I told you so” moment which helps get everyone on board the next phase of restrictions. Nothing make me want to be more self sufficient….

  • dipdooo July 11, 2021 at 12:43 am

    @Brandon – the entire strategy of the elite depends on technology. I thought in the past they could just collapse everything and wait until everyone is desperate and afraid and many have died and then bring in the solution. But I think this would not work and they know it. The problem is the whole apparatus of gov relies on tech, which relies on people, smart people being comfortable and doing their day jobs. A huge number of gov/commercial tech jobs (knowledge workers) are working remote now, due to the pandemic, and so they couldn’t just easily cordon these people off into campuses to keep working on their gov tech stuff. These people would suffer just like everyone else and the gov would tech apparatus would collapse. If everything went to heck, so would the organization of the gov and they would be set back years. Whatever they are planning, it won’t be allowed to affect tech.

    Just my 2 cents.

      That’s incorrect. You are forgetting they control where and when the tech goes down, so there is no reason that an attack on the internet would affect them. This is kind of the same argument people make when they claim that the globalists will “never bring down the dollar” because they seem to think the globalists are reliant on it. This is simply not true. They have brought down reserve currencies before and easily replaced them. An internet down situation would mean that they would bring the system back online slowly with the portions that support them and block the portions that hurt them (alternative media). And, they can bring it back after the economy and supply chain are sufficiently damaged to the point that the public is desperate. I’m not saying that this tactic will work in the long run, but it is certainly what they plan to do. All the evidence points to it. Never assume the elites will not let the world burn, at least for a short time. You will only be setting yourself up for disaster.

          Don’t forget the animals. Zoetis is the animal health division of Pfizer. In 2020 they recorded over $6 billion in vaccine sales for livestock and companion pets. They have over 11,000 employees.
          In early 2020 they were pushing the USDA to approve Covid vaccine trials for animals. In late 2020 they got the ok.
          On 1/21/21, Karen , a 28 year old Orangatan from the San Diego Park Zoo was nominated. She had no side effects to the jab. Since then 3 dozen zoos have requested the jab.
          In 2017 Zoetis received $14 million from, wait for it, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It was for the African Livestock Productivity and Health Advancement initiative. Since then 1.7 billion shots have been given to various African countries.

        After the so-called “Arab Spring”, pundits spouted rhetoric about how the internet could NEVER be brought down in the US like it was in Egypt as they sent swat teams to the six total ISPs in Egypt. I had to laugh. First, any or all of the internet in the US [and elsewhere] could be selectively shut down by turning off any portion or all of the fiber backbone and/or switching hardware. Second, and perhaps easier, it would be a piece of cake to bring it down by simply shutting off access to all DNS servers whether the servers themselves were actually shut down or there were a ‘sudden unadvertised change of IP’ address. Even generously saying that there could possibly be 10% of the sleeple that were tech savvy enough to have set up their own on their local network [or those favored and given access to the new IPs], shutting off even half, maybe less, of the country/world would be devastating enough very quickly. The techstas, the bankstas and any others would be protected to the degree that they are ‘on the team’, but anyone else? Not so much.

        That giant clanging sound you’ll hear will be the sound of simultaneous jaw drops on the anvil. Not sure however if that will be due to a) loss of internet/cell infrastructure, b) realization that maybe those conspiracy nuts were correct about ‘normal has left the building’, c) living like how the vast majority of the rest of the world lives every day, or d) all of the above. Kill the cell service and they’ll be jumping out of the windows within 24-72hrs.

        Been reading about all this for decades, watching, and studying God’s Word. It’s all happening in real time, right now. Front. Row. Seats. Use the restroom and load up on refreshments now while there’s still time. Wouldn’t want to miss the show!

      • Gauntlet33 July 12, 2021 at 9:23 am

        Good point. I previously thought it was all or nothing in that either everyone in a geographic region loses internet, or no one does, but I do think it’s entirely possibly (and more likely) that they can leave the internet on for themselves so they can continue to monitor and control, and even openly do so under the guise of “Well, the internet infrastructure is just not “safe” yet in all areas, and we’re gradually opening it up”…
        Imagine if you have no cash and can’t pay for anything since your credit cards don’t work. I advise anyone reading to have at least a few months of spending cash…however, I wonder if even that may not be enough if stores can’t electronically process a sale…

          “The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy.” – Morpheus –

            @Dennis, apparently you’re suggesting that just because people didn’t plan because they were completely unaware of the epic tsunami of criminality that is about to hit them that they somehow deserve it? If that’s what you’re saying, then you’re no better than THEM.

          Given that you seem to have taken on the role of policing the moral fiber of other posters here I’ll bite. In your first sentence you are implying that I have an evil mentality, but that you don’t understand it. Ok, let’s see what other assumptions you make…
          Apparently I like to watch people suffer and lack compassion, but that I will become happier once I realize this. All this from one sentence. Do you engage in this kind rash presumptuousness in real life or just on the internet?

          For the record: the TINY amount of delight I would experience would be due to greedy holders of wealth experiencing the sense of loss they so regularly inflict upon the majority of humanity.
          Think before you type, especially in regard to the character of people of who itch you know nothing.

    I attended the WEF Cyber Polygon July 9 2021 exercise. The public webinar is out on Youtube.
    Russian partners (Kaspersky & BI.ZONE) prominently curated discussion, including Red Team vulnerability countermeasures.
    ICANN official emphasized supply-chain internet fragility due to DNS hostname points of failure.
    Following session emphasized the need to disrupt mis/disinformation sites internet sites that threaten Pandemic recovery.
    Last session discussed the need for adopting Trusted ID single sign-on for accessing the internet public and private websites.
    Brandon is correct. It is apparent WEF-govts plan on disrupting the internet, focus blame on libertarian non-MSM sites, eliminate target sites, recover internet via biometric authentication Trusted ID web sign-on. Print everything important, and get the ip address of every site you value.

    @Gauntlet33. Those are two different things, everything you encounter in your life regardless of you being aware of it or not, you attract in your life. This has to do with your level of resonance. Everything you experience in your life, is a reflection of your inner consciousness. ‘If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.’ -Nikola Tesla-

    What I am saying is that we are all responsible for the outer world we are experiencing together as the human collective soul group.

    It is understandable that, as long as you look at other people and project your own psychology into them, you can never reach harmony with yourself. “Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes.”. -Carl Jung-

      @Dennis, first, I can’t remember your previous posts, but I believe I recall you being a good guy, so I was surprised by your apparent support of Chevrus.
      Anyway, my general point is this: if you don’t want to help someone who didn’t adequately prepare, then I can’t blame you for that because forcing help on others equates to a form of slavery and is completely contrary to the freedom movement that I am personally about. But I have encountered tons of posts (mostly OFF this site) where people actually take joy in others’ prospective suffering. Unquestionably, at least in my mind, those are evil thoughts…

      • Chevrus July 15, 2021 at 8:53 am

        Again you are assigning yourself the judge of moral character. In this case Dennis is simply adding something to my post in a supplementary manner, rather than supporting me as you say. Despite your apparent message of peace and tolerance one might suspect you of sowing discord….

    • Gauntlet33 July 12, 2021 at 11:18 am

      Also, I think that you’re right that many times the energy we put out, is the energy that returns to us, but I think it’s a gross exaggeration to say that “EVERYTHING you encounter in your life regardless of you being aware of it or not, you attract in your life” (emphasis added) as I believe there have been countless people over the millenia who have been murdered, raped, etc. who did nothing to provoke the situation. Moreover, according to your logic, you would therefore be condemning Jesus and every other rape victim as “asking for it”.
      Sorry, but references to quotes, albeit by very intelligent people, doesn’t cut it for me.

      I was contemplating this issue a bit more this morning…essentially, we need to be united like the majestic, loving and compassionate elephants. Sounds corny, but here’s what I mean. Individually they are strong and can fight off one lion. However, as massive as an elephant is, several lions can overwhelm an elephant and take it down. Similarly, one lion can pick off a baby elephant, but not when it’s encircled by the adult elephants.
      Anyway, if we each let our neighbors be “picked off” under the approach of “well, at least it’s not my family”, then we may be destined to die at our doorstep or in a FEMA isolation camp when it’s eventually our turn for “education” of the jab. But if instead we educate others and form localized mutual defense compacts and blockades if necessary, then we can prevail over the Feds. And whether you look at it as compassion or just being pragmatic/practical, either way, it’s a winning strategy, so in the end, I don’t care for talk of “let them die” (or relishing others’ pain, as their pain will one day become your pain) and instead I rather subscribe to the Beatles “Live and Let Live”.

    One thing Brandon mentioned more than once is the importance of, and not neglecting, comms. Although not nearly as versatile as Ham Radio, GMRS is also viable. (I’m trying to master both) and you don’t have to sink a ton of money in radio gear. The GMRS repeater in my area sits on a mountain top and rivals some of the best Ham repeaters. I’ve established comms with like minded folks over 60 miles away with a 5 watt radio. My Wouxun (pronounced ocean) KG805G is a business class quality radio that costs less than a hundred bucks and I picked up a Yaesu FT60R 2nd hand at a Hamfest for 50 bucks. Both are great SHTF radios.

    Brandon, although you have sent out a newsletter with the information in the past, please consider another edition with shortened info regarding “communication without internet” when alt-media sites go down and people need to stay connected….

  • Mike July 20, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Yes, it seems pretty transparently obvious that the best solution for the globalists is to intentionally collapse the internet so that it can be “built back better” with strict centralized controls to prevent “covid/vaccine misinformation” and stop or hunt down “domestic terrorists” who are “planning another January 6 insurrection.”
