    What can an old woman alone do to protest? Well if the CV is so deadly that my mailman has to wear a mask then why didn’t they stop delivering junk mail? I told the mailman to stop delivering junk mail to my box. He said he was required to deliver it. So I over-stuffed my box to create non-delivery. He pushed the mail past it….(which was all junk mail). So I removed the box. Will I change the world? No. But giving the gov’t a taste of their own medicine makes ME feel better. And will I miss those letters from Mom? A little. But hey, freedom isn’t free.

      Morning LEKP
      Your post gave us a good chuckle and one needs that daily, nourishes sanity.
      Thanks

      Great sentiment. The human will cannot be subverted by the idiotic or illogical.

      How about we start calling our monetary supply VOTES? I have 30 votes a ten Vote and 4 five votes?

      Do you have change for 100 Votes?

      Maybe if we start labeling the structures for our participation and their actions the woke can be useful, and the Evil will get the VOTES? Nah Evil will be VOTED OUT?

      Next we call em like they are? Bayer to poison?

      “Did you see the other day? Poison purchased more Poison! I wonder who supports poison and more importantly what do they need all that poison for? I didnt vote for that I voted for Dr.Bronners and pulled my weeds.”

    I live in Copenhagen. This saturday there was another big demonstration by the group called “Men in black”. On their facebookpage they write all are welcome for a peaceful demonstration for freedom. Of course the media covers it with clickbait titles that emphasizes the AGGRESSION happening in europe. Someone had unfortunately made a doll of the primeminister and someone else apparently set it on fire. That will surely make for 10 more fear-mongering articles ignoring the actual topic.

    James, thanks for the pick-up-up video. You reminded me that I wanted to follow through with that Mieila’s comment, but I got sidetracked. About 15 times, or so.

    BTW, what’s your source stating that you need to have a source for your claims 😉

  9. Matt.c says:

    Forgive my terribly awkward writing I am working on it….Changing Money to Voting?

    In the 6th grade like 30+ years ago, my Project was “Money? or Votes?” IMHO the money having been given such prominenece should be far more effective at breaking the ignorance or nehscience our labors support if the Money was changed to its real power of influence in the form of Voting?
    So instead of Money change to Votes?
    Federal Reserve Note to Vote Notes?
    Monetary Supply to Vote Supply?
    Economic Structure to Democratic Structure?
    $20 dollars to $20 Votes?

    It seems to me that this Societal shift to acknowledging just how powerful the Votes in your Pocket or the Democratic Reserve Notes in your Wallet could fundamentally change the epistomological paradigm of simple pieces of green paper that represent virtually nothing but BELIEFS to just what they really are POWER.

    Knowing that my Financial decisions or My Authority and Power to support actions I agree with or Decline supporting is instant thorough,fully anonymous, accurate, and brings to bear the Integrity of personal beliefs on a system that thrives on ignorance and indoctrinates nehscience.

    The true value of simply shifting the name of currency to Votes is that society decides how we label the tools we use. How empowering to note just what a single $1 Vote can be. By Spending that vote at my local Hardware Store speaks volumes about my appreciation of their struggle, my support of locally owned business over the Mega Box Store, it simply comes from my pocket or Billfold, or even from my Voting Card, or pulled from the AVR Automated Vote Retreival machine.

    All these are just words but, the key is how we use those words the meaning of them and the physical meaning or actions we wish to be accountable for. We are responsible for our actions. As a society we are capable of the most powerful action of humanity cooperating voluntarily to do ANYTHING we see fit.

    In my experience nothing is more powerful and has the very best outcomes then free humans voluntarily changing that which is evil and ignorant to that which empowers and supports good through cooperation.

    Its Sesame Street 101 Cooperation whats not to like? So dont sqaunder your Votes people figure out what your voting for and whether their resting place is something you feel you should support, if not you have some very noble research ahead of you?

    James, this is old news from July, but when the churches were locked down and casinos left open, a church in Nevada put in slot machines so they could hold their Sunday services: https://www.soonerpolitics.org/steeplechasers/nevada-church-avoids-coronavirus-restrictions-by-installing-slot-machines?fbclid=IwAR2MuQObtaKkx9XN_id51us9O040BEJQmQnyyOONuB4Q9gPGDtCjB-1k_nU

    Here in the States two protests organizations to check out are: http://www.MakeAmericansFreeAgain.com which holds teleconferences evey Wednesday at noon ET on how to resist the tyranny; and http://www.TheHealthyAmerican.org which has made waves in Southern California and provides resources to resist, with special resources for small businesses.

      Incidentally, for those who believe encrypted emails are secure, I’m thinking that it might be a good idea to delete the bit at the end of every email that says: Sent with ProtonMail Secure Email, sent from my iPhone etc. I believe email providers insert those to give them a backdoor into encrypted emails, in the same way that the Enigma Code was cracked when they realised that the Germans ended every message with Heil Hitler

    In relative terms, Vancouver Canada has been more or less open for business, except for very irritating and completely useless rules like having to wear a mask to traverse the 10 feet from the door to the table at a restaurant or bar, when you can then shed the mask and sit there eating and drinking – surely that’s because COVID doesn’t work when you’re sitting down…

    Yep you read that correctly! It applies to OUTDOOR PATIOS as well as I found out yesterday, but at least I can go to some places unlike in other cities with far more draconian rules in place.

    But what about Vancouver businesses that ARE NOT restaurants or bars? They have been dealt unfair and inconsistent measures. Well a local movie theatre – Rio Theatre – located in the commercial drive area of Vancouver has come up with an interesting solution:

    http://riotheatre.ca/

    That’s right…. I guess as they say: screw the arts for now – we are a sports bar!

    I’ve been watching this well loved local institution and others try to struggle through these completely ridiculous and inconsistent rules in place by Workplace BC and it’s army of minions, and it is fantastic that they are (In the case of Rio) playing the loopholes and back in business at least to some extent.

    I for one am heading down to my new favorite “sports bar” later for a beer beneath the big screen and hope to see fellow sane Vancouverites there so we can discuss how to address the ongoing lunacy.

    • Blameitontheboogie says:

      I’ve worked in the arts myself and I have friends who still do and it is absolutely heartbreaking to see them being destroyed. But the powers that be have been going after live venues for some time now. It’s almost as if they can’t bear anything connected with fun or joy.

      • willnyu says:

        Yes you are right and it’s extremely shameful

        …and afterall, the Arts offer critique and, as we have learned, critique is now subject to censorship and deplatforming (that last word – “deplatform” – will be added to future Dictionaries no doubt, as it becomes part of the New Norm’ and that’s even more shameful)

  12. gauntlet33 says:

    “Hypothetical” Solutions:
    1. burn down COVID testing facilities
    2. burn down vaccine centers
    3. perform a citizen’s arrest of any police officer who falsely arrests or imprisons law-abiding citizens as their arrest is likely a felony
    4. create “mutual defense pacts” with your neighbors and friends
    5. open your businesses
    6. censor those who speak of COVID as if it’s some highly infectious deadly disease by leaving the conversation, disassociating from them as close friends, shame them by asking when they’re wearing a mask, “Are you afraid of the virus even though there’s a 99.9% chance that you’ll survive it even if you are infected?”
    7. call your local sheriff to see where he stands — he’ll fear retribution from the population, so there’s a high chance he may side for Patriots
    8. if you’re a business who’s been fined for staying open, fight it in court — I read recently that charges are always dropped because they know that they’ll lose on constitutional grounds and they don’t want to have a negative precedent.

    If you all have any other great ideas, please share them as we need strategies to fight this with our minds before we have to fight this with lead.

  13. amber71 says:

    I live in Ontario, Canada and there are a few businesses now that have opened (and gotten fined). The only reliable news source we have is this one and they report on those businesses that open. https://www.rebelnews.com/news
    They also report on the protests and show what REALLY goes on. The MSM report that the protesters are aggressive but it is actually the police who are aggressive. I can confirm that Rebel’s reporting is accurate as I attend the protests every week.

    • fer67 says:

      I am in Canada too and it’s totally bizarre how the left wing organizations have turned out to be totally co opted by corporations into the Green New Deal, and Rebel Media is now the source left for some accuracy in reporting, but I still don’t want to trust just one place or person. We need accountability at every level, and transparency. Corporations run everything with bribery here.

      • Blameitontheboogie says:

        That’s how it is here in Ireland, government by brown envelope. The pharmaceutical industry is the biggest industry here and they have a very cosy relationship with the Irish government and its advisors. I think that’s why we’ve had probably the toughest measures in Europe.

    This was a superb #TheGreatReopening – #SolutionsWatch!

    Corbett…He da man!

    This is Bonfire Building 101.

    James Corbett is wearing his Hat!
    The rest of the Alternative Media damn well better follow his lead. They better start publicizing every defiant action that they see or hear about…and play it up to glory.
    They better massage every fiber to these acts of defiance. They need to nurture this spirit; inspire and instigate.
    This is THE STORY for 2021 if we are gonna come out the other side.

    In bringing about effective change, the mainstream media is not really the lead weights on our shoes…it is the Alternative Media which has the opportunity to help broadcast the message of how common people are spiting the Authoritarians.
    If some of these folks in the Alternative Media don’t climb on board this ship, I’m ditching them. I won’t look back, because the ship is sailing.

      I’m sure she will get back to James but I know Richie Allen had to wait a while for a response from her about something. I know that she is trying to do so much and spreading herself pretty thin. There are only a very small number of people fighting back here in Ireland. I don’t know what’s happened to the Irish rebel spirit, it seems to have disappeared.

    About India,

    https://www.jagranjosh.com/general-knowledge/farm-bills-indian-farm-reforms-2020-1606901455-1

    By what I read the reforms look nice to me particularly Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act or Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act. If someone could explain what the problem is, I would appreciate.
    We have to remember that if the government withdrew farm subsidies in most western countries, we would have te same reactions, even though they benefit big producers more than smaller ones, shift production and harm tax-slaves (as always).
    The “people” are not always right, and just because they say some laws will benefit large corporations does not mean they will, or even that it is bad in itself.

  18. gauntlet33 says:

    I hate to be a “party pooper”, but I heard the 1-1/2 hours of The Greater Reset videos from Jan. 25th (and have not yet heard the videos from Jan. 26th – haven’t yet heard James Corbett’s section, which I’m most interested in, as well as Christian Westbrook’s (IAF)), but I’m a bit disappointed to say that I have yet to hear actual concrete solutions.

    Please don’t get me wrong, I think that it’s a total all-star cast of the best speakers on these subjects, and I highly trust each of them and have total faith that they want the best for all of humanity, but I can’t even make a “To Do” list of potential solutions. It was literally: 1. maybe don’t pay your taxes to the IRS (in which case it’s possible the IRS might not even need our money anyway since the Fed can print as much as it wants before our dollar just blows up), and 2. consider withdrawing your money from the banks (where I again point out that they can get the money back from us by raising property and sales taxes, or just hyperinflating the dollar).

    As an example, Rosa Koire, who I love listening to, just reiterated the same thing she’s been saying since Day 1. And while I like that these videos may be great for newbies (and this is not meant as a “dig” on any of these speakers, as I think they’re all incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable on these subjects and they were each in their own way inspiration), I think we’re way passed time to actually having tangible solutions.

    A “hypothetical” solution would be organizing dates, times, and locations for “protests” at the capitol buildings. Or here’s how you go about going from city-slicker to being a farmer, off the grid.

    Am I the only one who feels that at this rate, we’ll be shoveling snow in the Siberian gulags, or trapped in a megacity building with our allowance of 1 ounce of protein per week before we die of malnutrition?

    Please tell me if I’m wrong.

    • hidetora says:

      gauntlet33,
      I believe they are aimed at informing, I for example am not familiar with some speakers. About your solutions:
      > 1. maybe don’t pay your taxes to the IRS
      Go to jail? Unless you have a mass tax revolt, the Fed printing money is the least of your problems.

      > 2. consider withdrawing your money from the banks
      But don’t keep it in your local colored paper, buy gold or maybe crypto (though I would not put all or even a 10th of my savings in such volatile assets).

      The thing is that there is no easy solution, agorism may sound good however most goods will always be traded in white markets (the cost of moving them to gray or black markets is too great due to state violence) and most people will be wage-labourers paid in their local colored paper. If our enlightened leaders prohibit cattle farming or ICE vehicles, it will be very difficult to continue those activities since you cannot hide them. I am not saying agorism may not be useful to buy some food or weapons, but it is a very limited approach.
      If there is no opposition to this from at least 10% of the people (maybe less if heavily armed) then there is not much we can do. In regions, where ~25% of the people oppose this agenda, with a bit of regional sentimentalism, secessionist movements can be set up.
      What we really need is a cultural revolution, but that takes many years.

      • gauntlet33 says:

        @hidetora, thanks for response.

        Also, those were not “my” solutions…they were suggested by one of the speakers Derrick Broze.

        As for gold and crypto, what do you do with those? How would you spend them? I think most people figure they’ll buy gold and Bitcoin now, wait for the dollar to hyperinflate and then sell their gold and Bitcoin for 10x what they paid for them. But if that happens, in theory, your purchasing power hasn’t really gone up. Now you’re just paying 10x of what you used to pay in the same dollars that you had before.

        Also, sounds easy, but what if the gold is prohibited as a means of transaction and you can’t get your dollars back? Or what if you sell your gold and the govt says that you can’t deposit your new dollars in the bank because they may be laundered since they can’t track where it came from? Sure, you can keep your dollars at your safe place at home, but for most people those dollars will eventually be used up.

        As for crypto, what if the govt erases/deletes the value in your “wallet”? Nobody can prove that they can’t, and I and many others here believe that the crypto is a psyop and/or at best a beta test for the new digital currency that will be rolled out. Or what if all crypto are deemed illegal? The value would plummet overnight.

        You’re right…I don’t expect an easy solution, but I would like solutions, and I believe that’s what The Greater Reset advertised, and after listening to 1.5 hrs, there was a lot of positivity (that’s great), but there were no solutions.

        In short, without a “list” of CONCRETE things that people need to being doing right here and right now, and people actually taking action, we are going nowhere with this movement.

        I therefore come to the conclusion that secession and armed conflict (as mentioned by Brandon Smith at http://www.alt-market.us are the only “solutions” until one side wipes out the other, or a new equilibrium is found wherein natural rights are respected in a truly representative govt.

        Someone please tell me that I missed something and that there’s actual solutions on Day 2.

        • gauntlet33 says:

          Crickets…

          With all due respect to the speakers here and at The Greater Reset, if you’re looking for actual solutions, see Brandon Smith’s articles at http://www.alt-market.us

          That’s the only solution I actually see working. The rest is just unicorn farts and wishful thinking. Sorry, but true.

          • Fact Checker says:

            Imagine a bunch of rats live in a habitat together. Some of the rats are aware enough to notice that the humans on the outside have gone on eBay and sold the cage the rats are living in to the highest bidder, and have committed to shipping it the next morning. In addition, a new box has arrived at the humans’ doorstep. It’s a contraption that appears to have a tiny slot for each rat to be strapped down in, constrained in a tiny cell that is not big enough for his body, and plugged full of electro-shock electrotrodes and IV lines of mutagenic fluid.

            THAT’S THE GREAT RESET

            Now, the aware rats start talking to each other about how best to hoard and hide their food under the wood chips of their habitat, so that when they all get moved into the torture-cage…the food…will…uh, well. The food will still be in the old cage…

            THAT’S THE “GREATER RESET”

          > Also, sounds easy, but what if the gold is prohibited
          For the first one, the easiest way is to sell it for fiat or crypto on a need basis, the main purpose is to shield your savings from inflation. For the second, you are supposed to use it when you can and exchange it for fiat when you cannot.
          It is highly unlikely that gold is forbidden, it is a very important commodity both for industrial purposes and as a hedge against inflation. The super rich also have got gold.
          There could be gold confiscations, and that is why you do not declare it and keep some of it in an offshore vault.

          > As for crypto, what if the govt erases/deletes the value in your “wallet”?
          Impossible, the blockchain technology makes it impossible.

          > therefore come to the conclusion that secession and armed conflict (as mentioned by Brandon Smith at http://www.alt-market.us are the only “solutions”
          Secession is the only way out of this, down to cities and towns, and ideally to individuals too. Extreme decentralization and organic communities is the only possible answer to this. I found out about Brandon a few months ago at LewRockwell.com, he’s excellent.

          • cu.h.j says:

            Secession sounds excellent and like a viable option in the US. Also supporting your militias is probably a good idea too. Salvaging your wealth is also important which gold and crypto can help with.

            I would get out of the city and build a community in rural places.

    • cu.h.j says:

      Well I’m building a house in another state in a rural area. I will have chickens and try to trade food with others. The area I’m moving to is very liberty oriented so hope to build community. I anticipate working a regular job until (if and only if) they mandate a vaccine and I think there’s going to be pushback because these injections are not fully approved by the FDA.

      You mentioned learning skills in another post. That’s a very good idea. As momentum builds as people resist the state will have to back off. I think grey and black markets will grow.

    • mkey says:

      I’ll address some of the points made in this comment thread.

      Gold in standard conditions can servr as a store of value, it has done so for thousands of years. Albeit, in intermittent periods. If you go hungry and so does the majority in your surroundings, gold probably will not get you far.

      So this depends on what you are planning for. If it’s a mad max scenario, a couple of rifles and a few dozen fruit trees will serve you a lot better than several bars of gold.

      Nobody will tell you what to plan for.

      Regarding bitcoin being stolen, I would say there’s a very high probability something like that will happen inside a few years. That will probably destroy many people’s lives. Unlike gold, bitcoin is a lousy store of value.

      Solutions are out there, it’s just that it is very difficult to cater to masses. Get autonomy, speak the truth and stop believeing that someone else will swoop in and save the day.

    Dear all,
    I don´t know if you´ve already considered this idea. Maybe you already talked about it in your episodes or comments. I wanna mention that Claire Edwards delivered to theh President of Austria and with a chop of received.
    1. The documentation together with a Notice of Liability regarding all current situation, delivered to the president (can too to other bureaucrats or even hospitals) as part of the responsibles of not only the Covid Fraud, also the Vaxx, the 5G EMF, and all diseases caused to the populations because of Covid, 5G, stress, lack of jobs and money, psychologic harm due to the lockdowns. 3 documents:
    **Notice Of Liability to Austrian President, Alexander van der Bellen
    **Declaration To Take The Planet Back
    **The COVID-19 Genocide of 2020
    The link of the documents, I´m translating to Spanish:
    http://ageoftruth.tv/watch-us-today-livestream-press-conference-from-vienna-austria/

    2. The Appeal to the 5g, the organization lead by Claire Edwards, as seems on of the reliable ones, the others (don´t know which ones exactly) are “purchased” by the gov. And do the same, deliver to the governments this appeal letter.I think that´s so important, that´s a big key part of their all elite plans to kill, spy and control people.
    https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/the-appeal

    3. Together with the demonstrations talked about in this episode, at least we can make more noise.

    I HOPE IT HELPS AND WISH YOU ALL THE BEST!!!
    THANK YOU AGAIN JAMES FOR YOUR WORK!

    I think Germany was a flop because of the extreme snowfall.
    Also videos of police storming stores might have been to discouraging(there was no “safety in numbers”).
    Doctors practices who write to many (more than a small handful) medical-exemptions for masks, get stormed by police. Many doctors just outright refuse to consider writing one NO MATTER how severe the problem.

    And lot`s refuse to treat anybody without a mask (even dentists and it`s just for the waiting room – empty or not)
    And now we have to wear hardcor medical masks (made in China and stinking like hell and expensive).

    How about, rather than a “flashmob”, something we can agree to call a “normality bomb”? …

    Arrange a group of 30-40 people to all arrive at a grocery store inside of a 20 minute window, let’s say, for example, from 12:35pm to 12:55pm.

    ** WEAR A MASK! **

    Everyone sets their phone to vibrate, and sets an alarm for EXACTLY 1:00pm. at _EXACTLY_ _EXACTLY_ _EXACTLY_ 1:00pm, everyone in “the group” removes their masks quietly, and continue grocery shopping as if nothing is out of the ordinary. The idea is to have 40 maskless people all appear, seemingly, out of thin air.

    Don’t give anyone in the store any reason to think an organized protest is taking place. Deny, Deny, Deny you’re a part of anything.

    If anyone asks if there’s an anti-mask protest taking place, reply, “not one that I’m aware of.”

    If someone tells you to, or asks you why you’re not wearing a mask, simply reply, “There’s at least 50 people in here without a mask on, I don’t see what it would help for me to wear one.”

    It would be interesting to watch and see how many other shoppers remove their own mask when they see that most customers aren’t wearing one. You’d know who’s not “in the group” if you see them taking it off at 1:01, 1:02, etc, etc.

    The ‘Common Man’ sticks it to Wall Street – the recent “GameStop Event”

    This should be a long story, but I will give a brief, coffee-shop rendition…
    Starting around Friday January 22nd , a group of Wall Street traders on Reddit with more than two million users (called “WallStreetBets”) completely disrupted the mainstream narrative. In fact, MainStream Media didn’t know what to do, because they lost control of the narrative. Mainstream Media could no longer could ply their trade of influencing markets, and some of the heavy weights of the Wall Street gang (Hedge Funds) were losing control. Not only did some of these Hedge Funds lose control – they got their asses whooped badly.

    SHORTING A STOCK
    In the stock market, if an investor thinks that a company’s stock price will go down, they can “short” it. Considering 2020, there is no argument that a variety of stocks should go down in price.
    However, as is often the case, some Hedge Funds have been taking advantage of this “short” aspect to the extreme. By being heavily invested in shorting a stock, it tends to manipulate the marketplace in the Hedge Fund’s favor and drive down the price of that stock.

    “WallStreetBets” Reddit Group decided to go against some of these Hedge Funds who were shorting stocks. The news spread on alternative media platforms such as Zero Hedge. A host of companies whose stock price was headed for the grave yard because they were highly shorted, suddenly found their stock price surging to unheard of levels.
    EXAMPLES: GameStop Corporation (GME) went from $40 a share to almost $400 a share in the span of less than a week.
    AMC Theatres (AMC) stock price had been hanging on by a thread. AMC stock price had been hovering between $2 and $3. By Wednesday it was near $20 per share.

    However, the real story here is how the MAINSTREAM SYSTEM responded.
    From restrictions by Trading Platforms to the Biden Administration monitoring the situation…
    …the narrative. Mainstream lost control of the narrative.
    At first, there were harsh media critics, but then later, some of the pundits on the airways cautiously muffled their descriptions of “The GameStop Event” for fear of ticking-off the common man.

      WallStreetBets User Writes Open Letter To CNBC
      https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/wallstreetbets-user-writes-open-letter-cnbc

      FULL STORY
      In the aftermath of Gamespot’s historic eruption, where infamous r/wallstreetbets, a group of traders on Reddit with more than two million users, was able to outsmart and blow up a bunch of hedge funds short the stock. A user on the reddit site published an open letter, criticizing CNBC’s reporting of the investing forum.

      Here is u/RADIO02118’s open letter to CNBC:
      Before you spend another day hosting your shill hedge fund buddies to come on the air and demonize r/wallstreetbets I hope you read this.

      Your contempt for the retail investor (your audience) is palpable and if you don’t get it together, you’ll lose an entire new generation of investors.

      I keep thinking about these funds that are short GME like your boys at Melvin Capital / your coverage of this subreddit and I’m getting madder and madder.

      These funds can manipulate the market via your network and if they screw up big because they don’t even know the basics of portfolio risk 101 and using position sizing, they just get a bailout from their billionaire friends at Citadel. Then they have the nerve to turn us into public enemy #1 just because we believe in an underdog company getting a second chance.

      We don’t have billionaires to bail us out when we mess up our portfolio risk and a position goes against us. We can’t go on TV and make attempts to manipulate millions to take our side of the trade. If we mess up as bad as they did, we’re wiped out, have to start from scratch and are back to giving handjobs behind the dumpster at Wendy’s.

      Seriously. Motherf**k these people. I sincerely hope they suffer. We want to see the loss porn.

      This open-letter comes after a renewed battle today in the video-game retailer stock (this time involving Chamath Palihapatitya and Cameron Winklevoss) is likely to gain business media’s attention.

      Users of r/wallstreetbets appear displeased with CNBC’s reporting. It only takes one Reddit post on the forum to go viral, one where it calls for a boycott of the financial television news network.

      ”What does it mean to SHORT STOCKS?” – (Very Simplified)

      A person or Hedge Fund can bet that a stock price will go down by “Shorting the Stock”.
      The person enters a contract with the promise to pay the price of a stock at some time in the future to a Broker on a bet that the price will be lower in the future.
      The contract states that the bettor MUST buy the stock in the future.

      Thus, if a stock is currently $100 per share, but falls to $10 per share in a month, the bettor gains $90 per share.
      However, if the stock rises to $200 per share, then the bettor will have to pay the broker $100 per share. The bettor loses $100 per share.

      If 1,000,000 shares are on the bet, this can be a sizable amount of money gained or lost.
      The Broker protects himself by insisting on funds any time the stock price rises.

      Here’s the rub:
      SHORT SQUEEZE
      If the bettor is losing money rapidly, he becomes forced to BUY the stock at the higher price.
      The more people buying the stock, the higher the demand and thus, the higher the price.
      Suddenly, the bettor is buying stock at high prices which drives up the price of the stock even more. So the “Short Seller” is buying tremendous amounts of stock forcing the price higher and higher and higher.

      BUT THERE’S MORE…
      Example: There are 100,000,000 shares available of XYZ stock.
      However, a “Short Seller” Hedge Fund is betting 150,000,000 shares will go lower in price.
      Get it?!!!!!
      Even if the Short Seller buys every last 100,000,000 stocks available, how can the Short Seller buy the other 50 million shares?
      Stock prices could go to the moon!

      This was the exact essence of the “GameStop” scenario. A bunch of ‘common folk’ at WallStreetBets recognized the insanity of this kind of stock shorting.

        The Basics of Shorting Stock
        A Beginner’s Guide for How to Short Stocks

        https://www.thebalance.com/the-basics-of-shorting-stock-356327

        EXCERPTS
        — Beware of the Risks —

        When you short a stock, you expose yourself to a potentially large financial risk.
        One famous—and catastrophic—example of losing money due to shorting a stock is the Northern Pacific Corner of 1901. Shares of the Northern Pacific Railroad shot up to $1,000, resulting in the bankruptcy of some of the wealthiest men in the United States as they tried to repurchase shares and return them to the lenders from whom they had borrowed them from.

        If you want to sell stock short, do not assume you’ll always be able to repurchase it whenever you want, at a price you want.
        Understand that stock prices can be volatile, and never assume that for a stock to go from price A to price C, it has to go through price B.
        The market for a given stock has to be there.
        If no one is selling the stock, or there are many buyers caused by other short sellers attempting to close out their positions as they lose money, you may be in a position to incur serious losses.

        — Different Than Investing —

        Shorting a stock is subject to its own set of rules that are different from regular stock investing.
        This includes a rule designed to restrict short selling from further driving down the price of a stock that has dropped more than 10% in one day compared to the previous day’s closing price.
        The risk of losses on a short sale is infinite, in theory, because the stock price could continue to rise with no limit.
        The short-selling tactic is best used by seasoned traders who know and understand the risks.

      SILVER & WallStreetBets & First Majestic Silver Corporation’s Stock SHORTS

      Coincidently, on Tuesday Jan 26th, I called the company “Miles Franklin” which deals in physical gold and silver. After getting some information on ordering some 1 oz “U.S. Mint 2021 Silver American Eagles”, I told the broker I would call him back Wednesday morning depending upon how much money I could scrape together. Wednesday morning, for the coins, the silver spot price was $25.19 plus $4.25 premium per coin.
      SIDENOTE: Everyone should hear this interview segment (or read the transcript) with Andy Schectman, President of “Miles Franklin” :

      https://www.corbettreport.com/the-year-ahead-part-1-currency/#comment-103200
      During the interview, Schectman mentions Keith Neumeyer of “First Majestic Silver”, who you will hear about further below.

      By Wednesday evening, after I had made my coin purchase, and also after I had started this Sub-Thread here at Corbett Report, “WallStreetBets” was whispering about going after the Silver market.
      They did!
      Thursday morning at the market open, the silver ETF ‘SLV’ was climbing high, but First Majestic Silver Corporation (AG) blew out the ceiling.

Then retail investors started flooding into IShares Silver Trust (SLV), driving it up by as much as 7.2%. Spot silver gained 6.8% at one point, the biggest jump since August….

Will silver and First Majestic short sellers be delivered a painful lesson?

        (This gives some insight into how Mexico is going after revenue.)
        …First Majestic is facing down authorities in court after other major companies including Wal-Mart de Mexico caved in front of potential criminal tax charges last year and made more than $1 billion in tax settlements. Mexican tax prosecutors have discretion to settle criminal charges even after they have handed complaints over to the Attorney General’s Office.

        While other countries doled out tax breaks during the pandemic, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador pushed forward with a campaign using criminal enforcement of the tax code. Lopez Obrador has accused major companies of failing to pay their fair share for decades.

        Mexican tax authorities won a court victory in September when magistrates ruled that Primero Mining Corp., which First Majestic purchased in 2018, had hatched an illegal pricing agreement with tax authorities early last decade.
        First Majestic filed an appeal in late November to that decision….

        SILVER UPDATE – Saturday Jan 30, 2021
        Reddit Preparing To Unleash “World’s Biggest Short Squeeze” In Silver

        https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/reddit-preparing-unleash-worlds-biggest-short-squeeze-silver

        EXCERPTS
        …and judging by the unprecedented flows into the Silver ETF (SLV) they just got started…
        SLV saw inflows of almost one billion dollars on Friday, almost double the previous record inflow for this 15 year-old ETF.
        [GRAPHS]
        Which helped prompt a spike in SLV off Wednesday’s lows of over 11% (and note that every surge in price was mimicked by gold, but gold was instantly monkey-hammered lower after the spike)…

        …This surge came after Reddit user ‘TheHappyHawaiian’ posted the following thesis on buying silver noting that “the worlds biggest short squeeze is possible and we can make history.”
        ‘TheHappyHawaiian’ cites two reasons to buy – The Short Squeeze and Fundamentals.

        — The short squeeze: —
        Buy SLV shares (or PSLV shares) and SLV call options to force physical delivery of silver to the SLV vaults.

        The silver futures market has oscillated between having roughly 100-1 and 500-1 ratio of paper traded silver to physical silver, but lets call it 250-1 for now.
        This means that for every 250 ounces in open interest in the futures market, only 1 actually gets delivered.
        Most traders would rather settle with cash rather than take delivery of thousands of ounces of silver and have to figure out to store and transport it in the future.

        The people naked shorting silver via the futures markets are a couple of large banks and making them pay dearly for their over leveraged naked shorts would be incredible.
        It’s not Melvin capital on the other side of this trade, its JP Morgan.
        Time to get some payback for the bailouts and manipulation they’ve done for decades (look up silver manipulation fines that JPM has paid over the years).

        The way the squeeze could occur is by forcing a much higher percentage of the futures contracts to actually deliver physical silver. There is very little silver in the COMEX vaults or available to actually be use to deliver, and if they have to start buying en masse on the open market they will drive the price massively higher.
        There is no way to magically create more physical silver in the world that is ready to be delivered. With a stock you can eventually just issue more shares if the price rises too much, but this simply isn’t the case here….

        Why #SilverSqueeze​ ‘backfired’; price is now collapsing – Peter Hug

        https://youtu.be/6FWNbN6Ksk0

        DESCRIPTION
        The silver price dropped 10% on Tuesday as the CME raised margin requirements for silver contracts.
        Peter Hug, global trading director of Kitco Metals, said that the silver squeeze attempt has now “backfired” as bullion inventories have run dry as a result, and with premiums up and few physical products to sell, it is now even more difficult for retail investors to push the price up.

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        RELATED: On Tuesday, “First Majestic Silver” was suddenly in the news cycle (Reuters and others) with recycled stories about their ongoing litigation with Mexican tax authorities, with the stories painting it bad light, which of course would be negative for stock prices.
        “First Majestic Silver” stock was in the middle of a short squeeze with prices skyrocketing higher, then crashed on Tuesday.

        UPDATE – Physical Silver Short Squeeze
        The objective is to buy physical silver in order to squeeze the “paper derivative market” (which might ‘own’ 500 ounces for every one ounce of real silver.)
        – RECAP –
        Thursday – Jan 28th – Silver prices start going higher
        Friday – Jan 29th – Silver shoots up
        Weekend – Physical silver virtually sells out
        Monday – Feb 1st – Silver prices shoot higher touching $30 oz
        Tuesday – Feb 2nd – Silver prices crash lower to near $27 oz
        Wed & Thurs – 3rd & 4th -Silver is below $27 oz

        Two ETF’s – SLV and PSLV are stocks which are supposed to allocate physical silver to their warehouse inventory when people purchase shares. PSLV is more trusted, because Sprott controls it. SLV has dubious parties in control of the inventory and audits, such as JP Morgan.

        QUEUED VIDEO of Wed. Feb 3rd (about 5-10 minutes)
        Chart is shown. 34 million ‘physical’ ounces of silver bought Friday to SLV

            “Houston, we have a Problem”: 85% of Silver in London already held by ETFs.
            https://www.bullionstar.com/blogs/ronan-manly/houston-we-have-a-problem-85-of-silver-in-london-already-held-by-etfs/
            Ronan details the numbers.

            …Conclusion
            If the above 14 ETFs see continued investment inflows, they will all have to compete for the available silver in London which is not already held within these ETFs. And that available silver is at an historic low, some 3000 tonnes or so. A few more days of inflows like the ones seen over 29 January to 2 February would be a major emergency for these ETF providers, particularly the iShares SLV. Because there is just not that much physical silver left in the vaults of JP Morgan, Brinks, Malca-Amit, Loomis and HSBC, which is not already reported as being in these ETFs.

            And lets not forget all the unallocated silver positions which are outstanding which are claims against the bullion banks for silver which they have not got. Anyone with deep enough pockets could now cause a serious run on the remaining available silver stored in London that is not currently attributed to the above ETFs.

        UPDATE Feb 20th – Saturday SILVER SHORT SQUEEZE
        Physical silver is still in extremely high demand. People are paying very high premiums to get it (if the dealer is not out).

        I have been following the scuttlebutt and silver COMEX prices daily.
        GATA – Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee – GATA.org is a good source for news items. They have been at this game a long time.

        Some pretty wild recent developments which highlight the covert manipulation to keep silver prices depressed…
        There are some big silver ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) which are supposed to add physical silver into their vaults when people purchase their stock shares. Examples SLV and SIVR.
        These ETFs are supposed to be for the shareholders who advocate physical silver and higher silver prices.

        They also have intimate ties to the Big Banks. Just after the huge spike in silver prices a few weeks ago, they quietly amended their Prospectus to imply that they do not have to add physical silver. In fact, they made it where the shareholder gets taken for a ride, and also stated that they did not want higher silver prices.

      INFORMATION about TRADING & CORPORATE FISCAL RESPONSIBLITIY
      I want to help set a balanced view regarding all this “WallStreetBets” market mayhem, and there some data that people should know.

      There is what is called “T+2 Settlement Date” (“trade day” plus two days). It takes some time for funds to transfer. A place which handles your stock trades like Charles Schwab, Ameritrade, RobinHood, etc. need to have extra funds available is order to process the trading transactions.

      “Option Trading” gets even trickier.

      In this era, a huge number of traders are operating on “margin”. In other words, they are controlling a vast amount of stock with temporarily borrowed money, but very little of their own money.
      This is what happened in 1929 when the stock market crashed: Most people bought stock on margin. When everyone was selling all at once, the congestion was so bad that sell orders could not be processed fast enough, plus no one was buying. People lost their shirt is a flash.

      Webull CEO explains why trading was restricted amid the GameStop market mania
      https://finance.yahoo.com/news/we-bull-ceo-explains-why-trading-was-restricted-amid-the-game-stop-market-mania-172539318.html

      EXCERPTS
      As trading of GameStop (GME) got wilder on Thursday, “Robinhood”, “Interactive Brokers”, and “Webull” shut down the buying feature for the beleaguered video game retailer’s stock.

      The move has been roundly bashed by politicians on the left and right and caused a wave of anger towards Wall Street for supposedly rigging the system against individual retail investors, and specifically Robinhood for abandoning its core beliefs of “democratizing finance.”

      But in an interview with Yahoo Finance, Webull CEO Anthony Denier explained that the situation was not an unsavory conspiracy against traders who had made money from the so-called short squeeze on GameStop.

      “There is an outcry because a lot of the retail, they don’t actually understand the dynamics that happen after a trade,” Denier said. “It has nothing to do with the decision or some sort of closed room smoke-filled cigar room of Wall Street firms getting together to the dismay of the retail trader. This has to do with settlement mechanics of the market.”…

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        (…continued…)

        …The stock went from $65 a share at market close on Friday, Jan. 22 to close at $347.51 the following Wednesday.

        That’s when the three online brokerages stepped in to put the brakes on the buying. For Webull, this was not a nanny move to protect investors from buying at the top and then getting mad nor was it a move to save the hedge funds that were shorting GameStop, Denier said.

        “Our clearing firm simply cannot afford the cost to settle those trades,” he said.

        During moments of volatility, the transaction costs can spike due to risk and a variety of factors.

        “We cannot use customer funds to front that cost due to regulation,” Denier said. “So the brokerages or the clearing firms have to go into their own pockets to do it. And they simply can’t afford the cost.”

        That, he said, was the reason GameStop, AMC (AMC), BlackBerry (BB), and a handful of other stocks experiencing a similar phenomenon were taken off the table for prospective buyers.

        Charles Schwab Corporation Statement on Recent Trading Activity
        https://www.aboutschwab.com/schwab-statement-on-recent-trading-activity

        EXCERPTS
        In recent days, much attention has been paid to trading in a group of securities that include GME, AMC, EXPR and others, that are part of what is being called a “short-squeeze.” As part of the increased media attention around this activity, there has been some confusion about what Charles Schwab & Co. and TD Ameritrade have each done in response to the situation. To clarify:

        Neither Charles Schwab & Co. nor TD Ameritrade halted buying or selling ANY stocks this week. Neither firm restricted buying or selling basic options. Both firms did adjust margin requirements on select stocks to ensure clients had sufficient assets to pay for stock purchases. Both firms also restricted certain advanced options strategies.

        (…Schwab continuing…)

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          (…Schwab continued…)

          More specifically, the actions taken include:

          Both firms put in place some restrictions on certain types of options transactions to help mitigate risk. For example, we are not allowing clients to sell naked call options in order to mitigate an unlimited risk situation. These decisions are based on risk and volatility and are made on an individual security basis.

          Both firms, as normal course of business, review and alter margin requirements in highly volatile securities. As margin requirements increase, clients are required to hold more equity in their accounts to make trades in these securities.

          As an example, for the GME security, both firms changed the requirement to 100%, thereby removing margin from the security. This process began on Jan 13th, 2021. Since that time, clients have been restricted from using GME as collateral for a margin loan; before Jan 13th clients could do so in a limited way. The example below illustrates what this means:
          a)~~~ Client owns $100,000 of a marginable stock (i.e., XYZ). They can take out a margin loan against XYZ to buy non-marginable securities, like GME.
          b)~~~ Client owns $100,000 of a non-marginable stock, like GME. They cannot take out a margin loan against GME to buy XYZ.

          We believe these steps appropriately balance investors’ ability to trade these securities with the firm’s duty to protect itself from potentially absorbing losses incurred by an individual’s trading or investing strategies. They are consistent with our long-standing risk management practices and similar to steps we have taken with other high-risk or highly volatile securities in the past.

      So much for “sticking it to the suits”.

      The unfortunate reality of Wall Street is that, sooner or later, we knew that hedge fund players would emerge who capitalized on the Reddit-fueled squeezes of the last two weeks.

      One such fund was Jason Mudrick’s hedge fund. Mudrick Capital Management made almost $200 million, fueled by stakes in names that squeezed higher during the GameStop frenzy, according to Bloomberg. His fund made 9.8% in January, one of the best months since the fund’s inception. Most of its gains came from debt and equity options in AMC and volatility bets in GameStop…

      …Mudrick bought AMC’s second-lien bonds for 7 to 20 cents on the dollar, before they rose to about 70 cents on the dollar last week. His firm specializes in distressed debt investments and is in the process of expanding further into Europe. It recently bought a credit hedge fund run by CVC Credit Partners….

      UPDATE – Feb 14th Sunday – Zero Hedge
      – FRONTRUNNING –

      It is kind of ‘understood’ by many traders that when orders are placed, some big outfits can use that inside data to their advantage in trading stocks,(e.g. making trades in advance of the trader’s order fulfillment).
      It should also be known that by default, Robinhood traders get signed to margin accounts (credit). Margin accounts can get expensive to the trader, because a high interest is paid for the credit.

      … Citadel which made billions by having an advance look at the biggest surge in retail stock and option orders flow in history, and being able to trade ahead of and around it…

      …Well, we now officially know all about Citadel’s modus operandi because just a few days after we received that letter, none other than financial regulator FINRA, revealed that Citadel Securities was censured and fined for engaging in – drumroll – “trading ahead of customer orders” as Letter of Acceptance No. 2014041859401 revealed:…

      …Now we admit that our financial jargon is a bit rusty these days, but “trading ahead of customer orders” sounds awfully similar to another far more popular “term of art”, one which we know very well: frontrunning!…

      …we were not the first to expose Robinhood’s ways. That honor falls to our friend Joe Saluzzi and Sal Arnuk, who for over a decade have led the crusade against high frequency trading, and who in November 2014 wrote “Beware of Those Offering Free Retail Trades.”….

    James and dear people,
    James asked us to tell what we´re doing in our countries to help. I´m in Mexico, and despite there was a protest of the restaurant owners to open, I can see most of the people very very blind. Sadly, in Latinamerica, there are less vaulable and truth information about what´s going on. First, cause the good info is mostly in English, like corbettreport. Second, they´re not interested in those topics, they´re totally hypnotized by the mainstream media and most really believe there are conspiracy theories. Besides that, people ignorance is high, the common sense is not used, the denial is huge!!! The fear to change or to accept something different is a barrier for them. I´m worried about Latinamerica, as it´s a considerable % of the world as a barrier to make a change. The other factor is the corruption, at least here in Mexico, no matter the socioeconomic level, most of people prefer $$$ than tell the truth, than investigate, than question a doctor or an authority. They can sell themselves easily for few pesos. The doctors, the people in general scared of losing the jobs, they prefer money to keep silence, most of them are accomplices.

    WHAT I´M DOING TO HELP PERSONALLY:
    I´m translating relevant videos of the current situation, all kind of videos non copyrighted about 5G, covid scam, vaccines, bankers, great reset, the surveillance system that is exporting China, the social credit system. I open a Channel and accounts in spanish to give access to people to the real information. No matter they´ve been censored me in different media, I keep opening new accounts. People need information!!!

    I lived 6 years in China, I lived there the beginning of the Covid Jan-Feb 2020. I could luckily find a flight back to Mexico. I´m in shock to see that all I saw in China is coming true. Specially the Xinjiang “experiment” as I call it, is being applied in all countries. That´s not a joke, we can´t miss any minute to keep fighting and trying to find solutions, to stop the Great Reset and all those criminals intentions for the world.

    Thank you,
    MEFF

  25. Thanks James it’s great to hear about all the actions being taken around the world in protest of the lockdowns and other Covid measures.

    A couple of housekeeping notes:

    I mentioned a few months ago that the file size of your videos had started to balloon to huge sizes for even short videos.
    Soon after the file sizes dropped to regular sizes again.

    Once again there is a balloon in size (200 Meg for this video 23 minute video.)

    I tried to clean my monitor during this video as I was sure there was some dirt on the screen.
    I had no success.
    Turns out it was James’ cursor that was pinned to the top right of his sweater for the first half of the video. 🙂

    Thanks for the information on the Indian Farmer protests. We live in Brampton, Ontario, a city with a very large Indian population, and we have seen many related rallies (usually on Saturdays), sufficient to create traffic issues on some of the busier main streets. For several weeks now, I have seen many vehicles with signs saying “Support Indian Farmers” on them. So I just wanted to let you know that the Indian Farmer movement is having an impact beyond India’s borders. Your piece helped to put our local situation into context. Many thanks for covering this.

    I live in France.

    A restaurant called Poppies Brasserie in NICE decided to go against the government dictates and opened their doors for eat in service on Wednesday during lunch time.

    Currently, restaurants can only stay open if they offer take out service.

    Anyway, the police got word, arrived before opening and watched outside until the lunch service ended.

    They then arrested the owner Christophe Wilson. They also included in the charges that one of his employees did not have proper working papers. So that person probably got deported.

    Apparently all of this was video taped etc. Because the police also announced that they will fine anyone who attended, if they are able identify them, for non-compliance of the compulsory mask laws and for not respecting the ban of groups of more than 6 people. Even though people here are allowed to cram themselves into public transport, offices, super markets, shopping malls etc.

    The dictatorship real and is already in place here in France.

    Happy days! 🙁

    • manbearpig says:

      Unfortunately, this sounds exactly like the France I came to know and fear… and flee just in time last summer.

      In that country where generous taxpayer-sponsored state aid for healthcare, unemployment and family subsidies has made many completely beholden to government diktats, (while others further to the right complain of an expensive “assistance state” that kills initiative)

      formatting public opinion seems to be a cinch.

      I remember, upon arriving in that country 34 years ago, being struck by an image: that of the “bocage” or hedges that divide up the rolling French countryside into parcels in a most bucolic and picturesque way.

      I had no idea back then that it was also the reflection of the French mind that is completely compartmentalized preventing any acute critical thought from ever wandering into certain forbidden pastures for nourishment.

      The cult of group-think has a strangle-hold there amongst the very vast majority and stigmatization through universally known boogy-men such as Alain Soral, Dieudonné, and even Dr Raoults is perfectly effective in squashing any doubt about the judicious and generally benevolent nature of the government.

      “comme il faut” and “le juste milieu” are mantras there and anything slightly deviant to MSM headlines is “n’importe quoi”.

      In other words, France has long been a template for what the future will look like: populations depending completely on governments for financial survival which will effectively squelch any flowering dissidence in the bud.

      Now a moment of silence for the Yellow Vest movement that very quickly earned the contempt of the vast politically correct and politically apathetic majority.

      And the crazy thing is that both the population of France and the World look up to the French as being wildly free thinkers and spirits…

      However, this warmed my heart an hour ago:

    This is great to see and will not be televised, beyond stories calling out protestors. For example, look at this https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-55810229 for a non-too-subtle brainwashing headline from the BBC, using the old trick of adding a quote around words to tell you what to think. Throw in a pic of a crying woman for added emotion and unfortunately you have successfully started to turn msm-watching Joe Public against his fellow humans.

    Unfortunately, we only need to look at the ten stages of genocide to know what’s going on. Exactly what Nazi Germany did, where supposed Jewish saboteurs and communist assassins disrupted life for the average German and set fire to the Reichstag. Then Poles supposedly invaded Germany hours before Germany was forced to retaliate in 1939.

    Now they will turn those screaming for the vaccine against those who are trying to resist. Every time i sit in a work meeting I despair at supposedly intelligent colleagues who just can’t wait for it all to return to normal after the vaccine (not realising it’s never coming back).

    This story here from the BBC may well be the first one I have seen in the Nazi Germany saboteur style. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-55822838. “How could those awful unclean anti-vaxxers disrupt the saving of lives?”, they will cry, with no evidence at all.

    It feels like they are about 50 chess moves ahead, unfortunately.

    Regarding India and the farmers protest, here is something very relevant.

    “THE LARGEST peaceful protest in the history of humanity took place on November 26, 2020 where a staggering 250,000,000 protestors stood together in a pan-India workers strike. Why? The protests are against the now nefarious “3 Farm Bills”, illegally passed, without debate, during India’s brutal lockdown. Threatening food sovereignty, the livelihood of farmers, and accelerating the globalist corporate takeover of food supply – Human Rights and Environmental Activist, MEDHA PATKAR, of the National Alliance of Peoples Movements, says the 3 Farm Bills are “an absolute violation of the Indian constitutional framework”.

      Thanks for your book, I have read and listened to it. While I understand the points it brings forward and as much as I’d find it pleasurable to stick a dozen bananas up the mayors towncar muffler, I find it a more natural to just walk away from the system as much as possible.

        Mkey: Thanks for the kind words. As you likely know, I was just one part of assembling that book and its audio version. Many people, credited and silent, made that project happen. I am currently working on a Field Manual #2.
        However, to your point, escapism and its limitations leave The State alive.
        Our job won’t end as long as The State lives. It will follow us. It will hunt us. It will kill and imprison us, as it always has since its inception, until we kill it.
        If any person is not ready to take on the true fight, then I still respect that person and wish them the best. Protect yourself and your family as best as you can.
        But I must fight and not flee.
        I must walk into the flames.
        Those like me should learn how to use wisdom and fight productively and move to the goal of killing The State.

        • mkey says:

          I wouldn’t refer to it as much as “escapism”, it’s more something akin to “starvation”. Srarvation of “money”, energy and meaning.

          The example you have given is certainly not without its merits, but in the end does it boil down to anything more than debt funny money? I think not.

          Additionally, as is pointed out in the book, it leaves you open to getting caught, especially if the “act of vandalism” is repeated several times. I’d say it is quite difficult to disable dozens or hundreds of these devices without being seen. While for them sufficient to just monitor one of the points and wait.

          These guys know how to spend something they don’t own; they have been doing it since the dawn of government and it is up to each individual to understand what is happening, what is real and what is not.

          The state will fail only when people get smart to its ways. To that end, I see some potential in stickering up the place, following the lead of, for instance, the order of white rose.

          It’s either that or I’m simply not immaginative enough to figure out ways to hinder the state in an efficient way.

          • Ben Stone says:

            Thanks again for the reply, mkey, but keep in mind, I’m not speaking in theory. We are practicing these things and so far, since 2015, not one of us has been caught. We don’t repeat tactics. We meet in small numbers and exchange ideas and plans. Then we act. Coverage of our actions stays mostly with local news, which is what we count on happening. I only meet with two people, and they only meet with a very few people. We exchange ideas, then we never know if the others acted or not. But we trust that actions are happening. We monitor the local news of the areas where our cells operate, even though we don’t know who is in those cells.
            There is a very real risk. All of us know this. But the risk of letting another generation become slaves is greater for us than our fear of being caught.
            But it’s not for everyone.
            Our actions should be denounced by most.

    Solution: Critique Policy, Hang Them With Their Own Words – Put Officials on Public Record – Shame Them

    Most of my efforts deal with sustainable development (SD). I’m in Southern California, USA, which means that SD is driving the economic agenda here and the rest of the USA now that the Paris Climate Accord has been reinstalled by president Biden.

    Local dissent is what we specialize in. The strategy is to review public policy and “hang them with their own words”. This is not hard to do because SD is a agenda, based on relative consensus, not science.

    Method:

    1. Critique Policy

    a. Review/Study the issue – Officials will present policy: a report, resolution or ordinance. Usually this a draft is prepared in advance by city or agency staff before it is voted on by a commission or city council. You can find proposed policy via meeting agendas at agency and city Web sites.

    b. There will be “claims” made in policy to support arguments. It is your job to disclaim the claims. This is not hard to do since much of what is presented in regards to SD is opinion. If someone has an opinion and it is not supported with evidence, simply note this and demand evidence. If “faulty” evidence is used to support a claim, disclaim it with your own evidence, citing sources. Note your questions and comments.

    2. Put Public Officials on Public Record

    a. Put your critique on public record – Put your critique in a letter and,
    b. Send the letter to the “clerk of the board”.
    c. If you send via email, ask that the clerk confirm your email and that your letter has been distributed to all parties addressed. This is important. The conformation from the clerk will be your PROOF OF DELIVERY AND DISTRIBUTION.

    3. Shame Them – Promote Your Findings

    a. Send copies of your letter to local press, post to local social media and send local clubs and network groups.
    b. Read your critique and promote your findings in person at city council and committee proceedings…
    c. If you need more time to then the typical three/five minutes to speak, break the critique into segments and have other people read it into the public record. This “tag-team” works well.
