Quote of the day—Brandon Smith

What we are witnessing right now is the final phase of a collapse scenario that was more than a decade in the making, and Biden is about to help finish the job.

Biden will no doubt seek to hyperinflate the dollar in the name of offsetting the losses and keep things afloat for a short time, but the real agenda will be to trigger price spikes in goods as well as eventually killing the dollar altogether. No amount of stimulus will stop the crash that has already been set in motion; the bailout measures from this point on are Kabuki theater, a show put on for the masses to make us believe that the government and the banks “did everything they could” to save us. The elites have no intention of stalling or stopping the collapse; their “great reset” demands it.

One’s initial assumption would be that Biden would then take the blame for the economic crisis, but it appears that the establishment is going to set up a Herbert Hoover narrative and lay all the blame squarely on Trump and conservatives. In the past I have noted that Trump’s trajectory was very similar to Herbert Hoover’s, in that he was a business mogul and Republican that pushed for corporate tax cut policies and also extensive tariff’s.

Biden’s Presidency Will Be A Catalyst For Secession – And Perhaps Civil War
[I’ve been listening to the book When Money Dies: The Nightmare Of The Weimar Hyper Inflation. There are a bunch of takeaways which I think are relevant to our current situation. The ones I have taken note of so far include:

  • The government was, in a sense, without options because of increasing obligations which they could not pay for. The option of defaulting was “too terrible to confront” and they could avoid the confrontation in the short term by printing more money. Our situation more than parallels theirs.
  • The volume of paper became so large people carried their money in baskets and wheelbarrows. People would have their baskets and wheelbarrows stolen and the thieves would leave the money behind.
  • Things moved quickly. A cup of coffee was priced at 5,000 Marks when you sat
    down on the table but was 8,000 Marks after you drank it and went to pay for
    it.
  • One of the things that slowed the increase in the currency supply was the physical creation of the paper bills*. Our digital money will not have these restrictions on the rate of increase.
  • Some people did well in this environment. Among these were people in businesses where their costs were upfront and product sales were much later.
  • People in union jobs with effective striking power producing essential goods were able to avoid the worst of the situation.
  • People in the services industries, include doctors, lawyers, etc. did poorly.
  • People in government jobs and on pensions were the worst hit. They had nothing to barter with and no effective ability to go on strike.
  • Certain areas (I’m thinking these were something like an equivalent of our counties) issued their own currencies with exchange rates based on a quantity of grain or fuel.
  • The masses of the people, including well respected economists, did not understand why it was happening. They needed someone or something to blame. Jews became the “winners” in the scapegoat Olympics.

We live in interesting times.—Joe]


* The capacity of the infrastructure for producing and distributing the currency was exceeded. With the denomination of the bills increasing at an exponential rate even the limits on things like the speed of the design of the bills was exceeded. The ability to produce and delivery the paper to the printers, get it through the printing presses, and distribute it to the banks exceeded the truck transportation capacity.

  1. Exactly! And just as FDR screwed the public with his government meddling last time. BOHICA is the future this time around also..
    Remember, Biden voters are still out there. Ready to fix the problems with their feeling.
    Hoe duc Harris and an army of starving 3 rd. world friends will not a freedom loving, constitutional republic make.
    But were Americans. And what survives is going to have the rest of the worlds knees knocking together.

  2. friends:

    the continuation of covid-19 shutdowns and restrictions on social interaction among potential opponents of such measures will hasten the process. we are heading for a “democratic party” made depression.

    • It’s not just the democrats, believe me. The republicans are only slightly less bad, and just as deaf to their constituents.

  3. One unsustainable system replaced by a far worse even less sustainable system. If this too a decade I wonder when they get there great reset how long it will actually last before they are sent to the guillotines?

    If money is worthless that means there money is also worthless.

    I wonder what you should buy now before you can’t? Guns? Ammo? I have enough relatively speaking. Gold and silver? Could always get more. What else?

    • Wheelbarrows to carry the money around. There was a story from Weimar of a guy that took his wheelbarrow of money to the store, went inside to arrange the purchase and came back out to find that someone had dumped his money and stole the wheelbarrow. So you will need several.

  4. Trump is like no other president in our history. Yes, the left would like to blame him for the coming depression, just like FDR made the Great Depression worse but always blamed Hoover.

    There is just one problem. Now, I realize that at any other time, for any other election, if someone told me “it ain’t over” I’d reply “sorry, bub, but the fat lady has sung, done an encore performance or two, and left the building; it’s OVER!”

    But that fact is, this one is not over. I can’t explain it any more than a lot of people can explain their deep faith in God to a non-believer. but there are simply too many things that just do not add up. I don’t know exactly how it’ll work. I don’t know if it will be a military thing, a quo warranto thing, something that springs from their attempted impeachment, or something else entirely out of right field none of us saw coming. But I firmly believe from the “connect the dots” evidence, lack of evidence, stories, action of the Dems and Trump and everyone, that all is not as it seems, and Trumps cryptic remarks indicate he knows what’s going on. He’s letting joe Average Dem Voter SEE, with their own eyes, what the Dem Party hacks will do when they control the white house, etc. Biden is killing jobs, destroying women’s sports, legalizing millions of aliens, banning fracking, killing energy independence, etc., etc., etc. Middle and lower class Dems are gobsmacked and saying WTF?! It won’t take long before The Don can take back the WhiteHouse to thunderous applause, and seriously clean house. Right now, he’s just taking a break and letting the Dems be Dems. They are illegitimate, and it can all be undone.

    So keep needling the Dems you know, make sure they OWN it. ALL of it. And smile like you have a trump card up your sleeve. It’s all good.

    • It didn’t just work for FDR. It also worked, much more recently, for O. If he were campaigning today he’d probably blame everything on Trump, then blame Trump on Bush.

      It will be incredibly difficult to make the Dems own anything. They haven’t owned anything politically since Carter, and that was probably a fluke.

  5. I think you give the general public way too much credit. They will be told bull and blame anyone but the perpetrators.
    Look at the Trump caused covid nonsense.

    • It won’t take much.

      Assuming 70 million (and yes, I know that’s a lowball number) Trump supporters, a half-percent — not even the eponymous ‘three percent’ but -half- — is 350,000 people.

      A relative handful of people made Congress wet themselves and surround the Capitol with National Guardsmen. Chris Dorner ran wild in LA for almost 2 weeks before they caught him and they knew who he was. The DC sniper pair wreaked havoc as well.

      How much trouble do you think 350,000 people could cause?

      And that’s assuming the Dems don’t piss off anyone else.

  6. You mentioned “people in government jobs … were the worst hit”.

    That isn’t the current pattern (in the 2020 CCP Virus depression). And I don’t expect it to be the future pattern, either. Instead, expect the government to take care of its own first and foremost. At least anyone in unimportant and overhead jobs; what I just said don’t apply to people doing real work like police and firefighters.

    If you don’t believe this, consider what happens today when a town gets into budget trouble. When in doubt, raise taxes. If that isn’t sufficient, lay off cops and firefighters — but retain all the chairwarming parasites.

    • Local government is different from the government printing the currency. The local governments were hit hard on their tax revenues because things like property taxes were based on assessments made months or years earlier. The same sort of thing with most other types of taxes and fines.

  7. You must realize that this QOTD points to a global conspiracy. And so, once the concept is grasped, the question becomes, not one of the minutiae of policy verses policy, but of identifying the perpetrator(s) of said conspiracy, their generals, lieutenants, and other players within the system, and their goals, strategies and tactics. After identification comes exposure. After exposure comes…well we have to accomplish those first steps first, don’t we, to know what we’re dealing with?

    The point, which I assert is self-evident, is that it is a step-by-step process, with one step being prerequisite to the next. So concentrate on the first step until it is accomplished to a significant degree. Otherwise we’re doing nothing at all.

    Using the building of a house as the analogy; everything we do is akin to arguing over which roofers and painters are better than the others when we own no land and have no plans for the digging of a foundation. Order of operations, and all that.

    Using war as the analogy, we’ve been suffering attack wave after attack wave, not even having identified the enemy, much less his purpose, location, strength, nor having discerned the fact that his forces have infiltrated all throughout our camp, blending in with our own forces unnoticed, even influencing our very thought processes, even to a large extent raising our children with his doctrines and ideals, and having raised to a significant extent even us ourselves, and our parents!

    And so, in your daily searchings, investigations and reporting, would the above described and heretofore neglected initial identification process not be the most important of all?
