    “Downright Sinister”: The Real Motivation to Ban Cash Will Shock You

    Editor’s Comment: The system thrives on control, and the flourishing environment of digital, web-based transactions is making it easier than ever to force the majority of people onto a cashless grid, where privacy is a joke, everything is monitored and authorized, and they can shut down whoever they like.

    The real truth behind the cashless agenda is diabolical and depraved, and yet we are all walking into this new system with little to guard our interests, and keep our assets protected. Apart from those still setting some aside under the mattress, and leveraged in gold, silver, and barter items, the future looks gloomy and predictably controlled.

    Cash Is No Longer King: The Phasing Out of Physical Money Has Begun

    by Shaun Bradley

    As physical currency around the world is increasingly phased out, the era where “cash is king” seems to be coming to an end. Countries like India and South Korea have chosen to limit access to physical money by law, and others are beginning to test digital blockchains for their central banks.

    The war on cash isn’t going to be waged overnight, and showdowns will continue in any country where citizens turn to alternatives like precious metals or decentralized cryptocurrencies. Although this transition may feel like a natural progression into the digital age, the real motivation to go cashless is downright sinister.

    The unprecedented collusion between governments and central banks that occurred in 2008 led to bailouts, zero percent interest rates and quantitative easing on a scale never before seen in history. Those decisions, which were made under duress and in closed-door meetings, set the stage for this inevitable demise of paper money.

    Sacrificing the stability of national currencies has been used as a way prop up failing private institutions around the globe. By kicking the can down the road yet another time, bureaucrats and bankers sealed the fate of the financial system as we know it.

    A currency war has been declared, ensuring that the U.S. dollar, Euro, Yen and many other state currencies are linked in a suicide pact. Printing money and endlessly expanding debt are policies that will erode the underlying value of every dollar in people’s wallets, as well as digital funds in their bank accounts. This new war operates in the shadows of the public’s ignorance, slowly undermining social and economic stability through inflation and other consequences of central control. As the Federal Reserve leads the rest of the world’s central banks down the rabbit hole, the vortex it’s creating will affect everyone in the globalized economy.

    Peter Schiff, president of Euro-Pacific Capital, has written several books on the state of the financial system. His focus is on the long-term consequences of years of government and central bank manipulation of fiat currencies:

    “Never in the course of history has a country’s economy failed because its currency was too strong…The view that a weak currency is desirable is so absurd that it could only have been devised to serve the political agenda of those engineering the descent. And while I don’t blame policy makers from spinning self-serving fairy tales (that is their nature), I find extreme fault with those hypnotized members of the media and the financial establishment who have checked their reason at the door. A currency war is different from any other kind of conventional war in that the object is to kill oneself. The nation that succeeds in inflicting the most damage on its own citizens wins the war. ” [emphasis added]

    If you want a glimpse 0f  how this story ends, all you have to do is look at Venezuela, where the government has destroyed the value of the bolivar (and U.S. intervention has further exacerbated the problem). Desperation has overcome the country, leading women to go as far as selling their own hair just to get by. While crime and murder rates have spiked to all-time highs, the most dangerous threat to Venezuelans has been extensive government planning. The money they work for and save is now so valueless it’s weighed instead of counted. The stacks of bills have to be carried around in backpacks, and the scene is reminiscent of the hyperinflation Weimar Germany experienced in the 1920s. Few Western nations have ever experienced a currency crisis before, meaning many are blind to the inevitable consequences that come from the unending stimulus we’ve seen since 2008.

    In order to keep this kind of chaos from spreading like a contagion to the rest of the world, representatives are willing to do anything necessary, but this comes at a cost. Instead of having to worry about carrying around wheelbarrows full of money, the fear in a cashless society will likely stem from bank customers’ restricted access to funds. With no physical way for consumers to take possession of their wealth, the banking interests will decide how much is available.

    The level of trust most people still have in the current system is astonishing. Even after decades of incompetence, manipulation, and irresponsibility, the public still grasps to government and the established order like a child learning how to swim. The responsibility that comes with independence has intimidated the entire population into leaving the decisions up to so-called  ‘experts.’ It just so happens that those trusted policymakers have an agenda to strip you and future generations of prosperity.

    Some of the few hopes in this war against centralization are peer-to-peer technologies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. These innovative platforms have the potential to open up markets that circumvent state-controlled Ponzi schemes. The future development of crypto-assets has massive potential, but being co-opted is a real danger.

    The greatest threat to individual freedom is financial dependence, and as long as your wealth is under someone else’s control, it can never be completely secure. Unfortunately, private blockchains are becoming increasingly popular, creating trojan horses for those just learning about the technology (in contrast, Bitcoin’s transaction ledger is public) . Without the decentralized aspect of a financial network, it is just a giant tracking database that can be easily compromised like any other.

    The World Economic Forum released a report on the future of financial infrastructure. Giancarlo Bruno, Head of Financial Services Industries at WEF stated:

    “Rather than to stay at the margins of the finance industry, blockchain will become the beating heart of it. It will help build innovative solutions across the industry, becoming ever more integrated into the structure of financial services, as mainframes, messaging services, and electronic trading did before it.”

    The list of countries who are exploring integrating blockchain technology into their central banking system is extensive. Just to name a few; SingaporeUkraine, France,  Finland and many others are in the process of researching and testing out options.

    For those who appreciate more tangible wealth, diversifying into hard assets like gold and silver is a great first step. It’s not about becoming a millionaire or getting rich quickly, but rather, using precious metals as vehicles for investment in the long-term. Regardless of what events unfold over the decades to come, the wealth preserved in physical form is more secure than any other asset. Forty years ago it was possible to save your money in the bank and accumulate interest over time, but that opportunity no longer exists. Those who fail to adapt to this new financial twilight zone will likely find themselves living as slaves to debt for years.

    Control and confidence are two of the most important things in the system we live in. Once these digital spider webs have been put into place, the ability for an individual to maintain privacy or anonymity will all but disappear. Only through understanding the subversive actions being taken can people protect themselves from having to put their future in someone else’s hands. The cash that allows free transactions without tax burdens or state scrutiny won’t be around much longer. There will be many rationalizations for a cashless society in the years to come, but without fixing this broken financial system first, this will only ensure that despotism gains an even sturdier foothold.

      Its coming folks. Buy everything you need now or don’t want the government to know about because when we go cashless you better have pms or be barter savvy. everything else will be recorded and digital.

      • Paranoid says:

        Not a problem. If HRC is any guide they will just forget where they put all the data.

        • Zeus says:

          This Statement: “everything is monitored and authorized, and they can shut down whoever they like.”

          Damn Strait!!!! This is exactly why they want to go Digital. And their full control of the digital money which can be easily installed. Just like the Obama Admin did with “Operation Choke Point” where as the fascist Government based on their personal and political whims, can shut down the opposition’s bank accounts, like 2nd Amendment friendly businesses like Gun Shop’s and Gun Manufacture’s checking accounts, credit card transaction processing, and or freeze all your financial assets if you are just one IRS payment behind. A pick and choose, to shut down opposition. Its a Massive Power grab financially and elimination of the Freedom of free commerce to trade, and do business.

          Going digital is all very evil. The Grid Crashes or the Computers running it, or hacking and DDoS attacks. What we need are more methods of currency to compete against the existing monopolies like MC & Visa. Its all the same crew. BANKS!!

          The Government should not even collect Income Taxes, as they can print as much money as they want for their programs. Why do they need to enslave us? All to make us make tax payments to them, to carry on their adventurism and phony illegal wars, and create massive debt to lavish themselves. We need a massive Tax Revolt. Stop paying all Fed Taxes Period. Sure pay your local and state taxes, but Federal taxes are insane.

          For many it is not worth working on the Grid for all your profits to go to Taxes. Why work? It is a great way to destroy an economy when you tax people to death or control all their financial assets. Get rid of all Taxes and just charge a “Consumption Tax.” Get the F- out of our lives.

          Bitcoin is hack-able and the same thing- Digital. We need currency based on hard assets, off the electric or communications grid where Hard assets just don’t disappear at the click of a mouse. Its like give us all your guns for safe keeping. Yeah right. NEVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS OR PM’S.

      • Muddy says:

        In the meantime my Ben Franklins are being broken down into Lincoln’s, Jackson’s and Hamilton’s. Go to the self checkout lane, pay for one item with a Franklin, then scan another and repeat the process. But a banana for fifty cents and get 20’s and 5’s back. Five items, one at a time, each time break a Franklin, and no teller at a bank will be suspicious and writing up a S AR on you. In a self checkout lane there is no cashier to ask me what I’m up to. The larger denomination bills are being removed from circulation in other countries, so I’m going to get ahead of the game and get into smaller bills. If the day comes where we face a situation like India, then I’ll go on a buying binge and unload as may worthless FRN’s as I can. I maintain a minimal amount in the bank.

        • Paranoid says:

          Just deposit them and withdraw $20’s, What’s the problem? I’m paranoid, but not stupid. Yes, you try to get 5K in $20 you have a problem, all at once, but over a few days, no issue. I don’t get to have 10 Million in $20’s.

          • Al Liguori says:

            Excellent overview article. A caveat and some advice.

            Bitcoin is NOT anonymous, but “pseudonymous.” A dedicated opponent can use metadata and the careless re-use of wallet addresses to identify the owner of a transaction. Because Bitcoin is the most prevalent cryptocurrency, users have the same protection that one anchovy has when its school of anchovies is attacked by a predator.—Which one gets eaten first?

            It takes knowledge, effort, and risk to buy Bitcoin anonymously and to “mix” it.

            There are better designed cryptocurrencies that afford true “zero knowledge/zero trust” privacy, but they have much smaller user bases than Bitcoin, so fewer “anchovies” make a more distinct target.

            As with my earlier post on stocking antibiotics, I recommend learning how to protect your privacy using VPNs, Tor, the dark net, and, yes, cryptocurrencies. Further, some of the best news sources are on the dark net, for example, deepdotnet DOT onion. You’ll need Tor, but don’t use Tor unless you tunnel with a VPN. In fact, use Tor on a virtual machine on a hardened system and use one of the serious non-logging VPNs that you can buy with cryptocurrency.

            Another risk of course is that when there is no internet, the utility of cryptocurrency is nil. At that point, rely on precious metals, Au, Ag, and Pb.

            • Genius says:

              KEEP SWIPING THOSE CARDS CARDTARDS!

              • Zeus says:

                I bought an extra 200 Oz of Silver on a Credit Card at todays dollar value. If the entire system crashes I win. And I, like Millions of others will be unable to pay any credit cards off cause the system crashed. Its unsecured debt. Tough luck Mr Banker. You gambled, You lost, and I won fair and square. Some can call it a structured default if they like. How many business sell off all the assets of a company, before they file bankruptcy. If you can see massive economic disaster coming at you, go max out your credit card on Food stores. You win.

                Hey, who knows what’s coming, but most important, keep your family fed, and housed. Screw thee banks, they been sticking it to us for decades. Keep an open mind. We are entering into survival mode for the unknown this next year. The Fed raises Interest rates on Dec 14th. Go buy a year of food on a credit card, before the rate increases. You win.

        • Zeus says:

          Exactly Muddy, I had a lot of brand new Franklins, and traded much of them for Silver on the cheap. As the dollar dissolves and Silver increases in value, I win.

          Anybody sitting on a pile of cash right now, pay off all your debts, get some PM’s and Get off the Grid. The more you do now while you still can, the less pain you will suffer when it all changes with a headline announcement. People in India got only a 4 hour notice 86% of their money will be come null and void. We saw the panic. Go buy a years worth of food with your cash. Buy more guns and lots of ammo. Most all canned food will last at least 2 years. Salmon 5+ years, canned tomatoes maybe 9 months to 1 yr. Rice and beans, vacuum packed. long time… Sitting all in cash is Moronic. And outing it in the bank creates a paper trail. I had an IRS agent tell me, any money you deposit in a bank is considered Income, unless you can prove it otherwise. You like paying taxes? I don’t.

          • Leonard says:

            I don’t know how to verify this, but I once read that according to the DOD, canned foods are considered to be good pretty much forever, if the cans aren’t rusted or punctured. In 2011, I found some cans of Dinty-Moore beef stew that I had stashed away in 1998. After carefully trying small amounts to be certain it was safe, I found that the stew’s flavor was weak, and I simply added a can of beef gravy and heated it up–it was better than when the stew was new.

        • Archivist says:

          Why do you have $100 bills? I never have any. The ATMs only put out $20 bills.

          I keep ones and fives, plus lots of change. They won’t replace change if they decide to reissue currency to devalue it. So if they replace everyone’s hundreds with new $1 bills, my change will be worth 100 times the new money.

          • still playing in the mud says:

            When you do a $20,000 job and a customer brings 200 $100.00 bills, well you get the idea.

            • rabbitone says:

              Cash banning is a fact and will happen. However, the U.S. will be the last to ban cash unless the reserve currency status is removed from the U.S. Why? Because most of the worlds illegal deals still go down in U.S. cash. You say no that is not true? Look it up …the Obama administration sent a plane load of cash to Iran. They paid them $490 million in cash!

              While working in IT at a bank in 2001 I read “…the Federal Reserve estimated that 90 percent of the $100 bills ordered by the Federal Reserve (which accounts for the overwhelming majority of C-notes ordered nationwide) were paid out to foreign banks “to satisfy foreign demand…

              • Leonard says:

                It could play out that the dollar bills will be legal for foreign business–just not legal for US civilians. This is true of the $500 and $1,000 bills that were still in circulation back in the 1970’s. When’s the last time you saw one of those?

      Here’s some serious news—well, it would be news here if the US Knesset had made it a crime to criticize Islam or Islamic crimes against humanity…

      The gradual erosion of the First Amendment:
      The U.S. Senate has passed the “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act”

      revisionist review DOT blogspot DOT com/2016/12/anti-semitism-awareness-act-passes-in.html

      By Michael Hoffman

      No, this is not a joke, or a newly discovered appendix to a dystopian George Orwell novel. The United States Senate on December 1 did indeed pass the “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act” [complete text is here]. A companion bill has been sent to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

      We are unfortunately all too familiar with this type of abridgment of freedom of speech and press. In Canada, Australia, Britain, France, Germany, Austria, and everywhere that the “error has no rights” standard of the Inquisition has been revived, dissident writers and activists have been fined or imprisoned. Ten years ago yesterday historian David Irving was released from an Austrian prison after serving more than a year for his alleged “anti-Semitic” speech and writing.The American media are mostly not interested. In their view this is the right kind of repression.

      The official explanation for the thought police enabler in the Senate is that the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act “seeks to adopt the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism so that the Education Department may consider it in investigating reports of religiously motivated campus crimes.” Note that word: “crimes.” We will return to it in a moment.

      The bill was proposed by Senators Bob Casey, a “family values” Pennsylvania Democrat, and Tim Scott, a South Carolina Republican, and co-sponsored by “Conservative” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, also of South Carolina, to “ensure the Education Department has the necessary statutory tools at their disposal to investigate anti-Jewish incidents,” according to a news release.

      The misnamed bill (it’s not about merely raising “awareness”), gives the federal government the authority to investigate ideas, thoughts, and political positions as violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It’s supported by the Israeli lobby in the U.S. and appears to be the work of the Israeli government. Supporters include the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Federations of North America, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

      Mainstream media such as the New York Times, which are obsessed with detecting supposed ominous Russian “meddling” in American politics, have reported barely a word about this legislation, which has the fingerprints of a foreign power all over it.

      Senator Casey listed the following examples of anti-Semitic crimes covered by the bill:

      •Accusing Israel as a state of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust

      •Judging Israel by a double standard that one would not apply to any other democratic nation

      •Demonizing Israel by blaming it for inter-religious or political tensions

      Are political thoughts and words a hate crime which should be investigated by colleges and universities, or the Department of Education? That’s what this Act will require if it passes in the House of Representatives. Should criticizing the government of China be treated as a hate crime against Asian students?

      Passage of the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act will have a chilling effect on freedom of speech at America’s institutes of higher learning, and this is its intent. The Act is an extension of growing Israeli supremacy over our Republic through the implementation of laws consonant with Talmudic halacha, which consists of one law for the lower-souled goyim, and another for the higher-souled Judaics (cf. BT Sanhedrin 57a; Kiddushin 66c; Erubin 21b; Bava Metzia 114b; Kerithoth 6b and 58a; and the Chofetz Chaim’s Mishneh Berurah: O.H. 330, among many other halachot).

      Zionist students on American campuses are free to denigrate, insult and mock every nationality, government and religion on earth. On the glass toilet known as television, Zionist Larry David urinated on a portrait of Jesus Christ in October of 2009, on the HBO TV show, “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” There’s no “Anti-Christian Awareness Act” on the legislative agenda of our cowardly Congress.

      Thus far the Los Angeles Times has been one of the few newspapers willing to broach this topic. In a Times’ guest editorial Liz Jackson writes: “This fall, Berkeley suspended an academic course called ‘Palestine: a Settler Colonial Inquiry’ after complaints from the same Israeli advocacy organizations who had previously tried to get the Education Department to stifle campus debate. This is how the chilling effect plays out. Campus administrators understand the specter of federal investigations —not just the threat of losing funding, but the fallout from bad headlines — and they suppress legitimate speech to avoid problems.”

      To add insult to injury, the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act contains the following coda: “Nothing in this Act, or an amendment made by this Act, shall be construed to diminish or infringe upon any right protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

      Sure. And some are more equal than others.

        Al Liguori… Excellent post and very true indeed. The only positive point about such event is the Zionists worldwide are fully aware that their days are numbered. People all over the world clearly are aware of the full involvement of this blood sucking microbes in financial and other crimes against the humanity.

        They are panicking and they should.

      • It is the last disclaimer/denier that is the most informative part of this irrelevant piece of legal sounding garbage, because one can not make something that is definitely in opposition to the First Amendment To The Constitution of The United States.

        Critism of the State, the Government, Political Controversy, one’s beliefs put into speech or the written word is exactly the purpose of the First Amendment.

        This is no law. This is foreign interference by Isreal. This is a declaration of war. The J*ws are putting it on the line to challenge Americans who are becoming aware of their hatred against us. We Americans must know that our beloved President Kennedy was opposed to Isreal having Nuclear Weapons because he came to understand the plan of Isreal to kill the Arabs and expand into their lands. That they planned to use the children of America to fight in these wars for J*wish power; for land and oil in the Middle East and to make slaves of the rest of us.

        Dummies have bitten off more than they can chew. China and Russia are forming a pact against Isreal, and with this stupid attempt to stifle free speech, they are making enemies of the last loyal, even to their own loss, American Citizens.

      best investment for Fed notes….Guns and ammo

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        Absolutely.

        • Not at the present time! Prices have dropped and continue to drop when it comes to just about everything. Two reasons:

          1) Seen the dollar index lately? Up over 100. Dollar is very strong right now.

          2) Trump and his pro-2A views, there is no urgency. Wait until after christmas and the “they’re gonna take our guns” talk will completely die down, then start buying. I saw an ad for new ARs for $440.00. …and they’ll keep doing down. At the beginning of the year, low end retail on them was 600+ but now we’re down into the 400s.

          At some point, though, it will reverse. Buying now wouldn’t be as bad as not buying at all. But, I’m just saying: you’ll get even more discount if you wait. There’s still some chaos out there. The recount reprobate retards who keep stirring things up only to find themselves losing votes for Hillary, the liars and distorters (lamestream media) that lie about Trump’s positions and the things he says, etc, keep things stirred up. Once he gets in office, we’ll have several months of calm before the earth sized bucked of shit gets dumped on the USA. You’ll see it coming. Buy before then.

            Netraanger, I still see Gold and Silver manipulation. The bankers are still depressing PM’s to prop up the US Dollar and so they can scoop up all the physical. When their vaults cant hold any more PM’s, the ball swings the other way, the Dollar crashes on purpose, and PM’s go to the moon and they win. Crshing he Dollar pper money, and going digital, as the fall back plan, saves them printing costs and they can create digits with the click of the key board. Here lets try this ourselves.

            Net,agree with you on firearm pricing unless you are just getting around to buying your first firearm,then,buy it now(and some ammo/mags ect.)!I have seen a lot of good deals on good/basic semi-auto rifle platforms.That said,buy parts with cash ect. and while still legal build a gun as still legal and no trail.Will say the govt. starts hunting down folks who purchased guns,well,many millions to follow and things have gotten to boiling point.

          • smokey says:

            Those holiday prices for ARs are not going to last much beyond New Years’ Day, the stores bought a bunch of them in anticipation of a Clinton victory and a gun rush, but the orders stopped the day after the election. Stocks are being depleted and will not last for very long.

            If you want to wait to buy, go ahead, but the ‘normal’ price for an AR is not going to as low as these holiday deals. Every store in the country does a third of it’s business during the last 6 weeks of the year, and gun stores are no exception. Everyone is competing for your limited dollars right now.

            • Genius says:

              Yep go out and register yourself with every agency there is. Why not instead buy privately or get a terminally ill person buy it for you? AR’s are all over the place for sale privately. I personally would never buy one of those pieces of shit. Get a real tool that is reliable and more powerful (ak). For over 200 yds. get a 30.06 or 300 win mag or 270 or 243. Or go register with the enemy and buy a piece of crap lol.

              • Genius says:

                You can also get an ak to fire full auto with no mods at all. Can’t do that with a POS AR it’s to weak. I used to do 600 yd. shooting all the time with my .243 and it was very accurate. 1/4 moa scopes are a piece of shit too. You need 1/10 milrad scopes for real long range accuracy. Go to swfa . com and check out the super sniper 1/10 milirad scopes. If you don’t load your own ammo your an amateur and will never be a real marksman…

                • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

                  Genius, or anyone else here. I’m considering getting an AK or maybe something in .308. Any advice is welcome.

                    Per NRA:
                    *The Year of the Gun: Carry Permit, Sales Figures Explode in 2016

                    The number of persons in the United States with concealed carry permits has reached an all-time high of close to 15 million. John R. Lott, Jr. of the Crime Prevention Research Center explains:

                    Also-
                    *November Gun-Check Numbers Break Records While Surpassing Expectations

                    The number of firearm-related queries to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in November 2016 set new records despite predictions that Donald Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton would diminish gun buyer demand.

                  Both AR15 & Commie AK are both Junk.
                  Go buy a Swiss Sig Sauer 5.56 Swat battle rifle. Piston Driven. AKs are not accurate, just spray and pray and AR’s jam and why they need a pussy forward assist mechanism. The Swiss know how to build a fire arm. Sure it is Twice the Price of an AR and 3 x the price of a Commie AK. Hitler did not take Switzerland for a reason. If you want to play commie Jihad like a rag head go ahead. Not me I will play survival. Never had a single problem with factory green tips 5.56. And the sig eats ammo like candy. Learn to bump fire your rifle for fully auti. No need to go to jail over an illegal weapon with out the permit. I never buy a used gun, could have been used in a crime or murder or it was stolen. Both can also land you in jail. Criminals buy used cause the have to. I like new and clean weapons put of the box. That is if tpu value your life. If you like worn out POS to defend your life go for it. I prefer a young virgin over an old used whore. But thats me. And fresh food over someone elses left overs. Lol.

                  Guys check out the Echo trigger system for your Ar15. Patented and invented by a couple guys in Indiana. Basically is a 2 round burst system that is ATF legal. No need for bump firing or those ugly slide-fire stocks. 6 month backorder so order now and u may have it by summer. We ordered 3 trigger groups 5 months ago. I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. These are great equalizers to gubmint full autos. And they are legal.

              • Zeus says:

                Hey Genius, You think the Government Gun Grabbers when out on their runs, will be looking at some list and say oh this guy here, is not on the list, so he has no guns? Leave him alone? LMFAO!! Anybody where you live has guns, and will all be treated the same. Then they will ask where did you get these guns? Oh look this one is stolen..same with this one when they run the serial numbers. And what else you hiding? A still? Oh looky here…. Are you that gullible? Every Red white and blue bleeding American in the country is on the Gun Registry. Criminals hide sh!t, and for a reason. Nothing illegal here in my camp. No used gun that tracks back to a murder robbery. I like New over used condom.

                • Genius says:

                  You might want to rethink that. They will demand you produce ALL registered arms. If they have no record of other arms they can be successfully hidden away from confiscation. Why make yourself a target? Why put your arms in harms way? Murder weapon? The chances of that are near 0 because I would think most weapons used in a murder would be destroyed period. So if I hide my stuff from the polizia I am a criminal? That’s a pretty statist opinion….

                  • Zeus says:

                    Genius. You are paranoid. Trump won, so its not happening for at least 4 to 8 years even if gun grabbing happens. Let us know when it happens in your area. Until then relax and go shooting and have some fun.

                  • Zeus says:

                    And with Trump appointing the next 3 Supreme Court justices, we are safe on the 2nd Amendment for another generation or at least in our old man lifetimes. So go buy what you want. A NICS background check only tells the FBI that it is either a long gun or a pistol. Does not say what the gun is. Could be a .22 or a .50 Cal. Its all classified as a long gun. Do you get a background check on the history of the gun buying used from a private owner??. How do you know it wasn’t stolen from your other neighbor? When he sees you carrying his stolen gun watch your back. Then you can explain to the judge how you acquired the gun. Show your receipt? Bwhahahaha.. Good luck. I never have a single worry buying new and can walk out the same day with the gun from a gun store since I am also a concealed weapins permit holder. Yep saves me from a felony charge for carrying. Proud to be on that CCL carry list as well.

    4. A “Private” blockchain… is a contradiction. It’s quite literally nothing more than a normal database with remote access. It’s even LESS secure than a normal database, but people are trying to use Bitcoin’s secure PUBLIC blockchain status to fool people. Bitcoin is only secure because thousands of people, who are not in cahoots with one another, run equipment that keep it secure. If more than half the equipment is in control of just one entity… it ceases being secure (AKA “Private” blockchains.

      Bitcoin is the future. It is the only way to get your wealth out of the control of banks & gov entities. Gold? They can come and raid your house. Bitcoin? They only way they get that is if you hand it over yourself.
      Do some research on it.

      Guns and ammo are great, but don’t neglect physical fitness/hand to hand combat.

      Not every problem requires a hammer.

      Often in real life we are confronted with situations requiring physical strength, agility, and training. I have seen men in their sixties and seventies who could still fight effectively. I had a friend who still rode a bicycle into his late eighties and still had muscles. We worked out together at the gym and he was there every day as was I. This man looked like a young guy, but you knew he was old. I asked him what kept him going. He said he got arthritis and his doctor recommended he change his diet and exercise.

      Once I was with a friend who had slender hips and legs and wore droopy baggy pants. He had his head and torso inside a booth leaning in to talk with the sales person. Some dude started yelling obscenities at him wanting to fight, then my friend backed out with the food for us. As he emerged and revealed that he was a large muscular man, the little bully changed his attitude immediately.

      My point is that, we should be prepared to deal with trouble from less prepared people who might try to push, or grab something. Just being fit and trained to fight.

        Frank Thoughts – and what country did you live in when hyperinflation took place?

        Surely even you are too young to have lived in the Weimar republic! So that leaves Argentina, Angola, Brazil, or any one of 19 other countries.

        Now I know that you’re a well travelled man (and super smart, because you keep telling the www) but even you, with all your talents (spy, top level secret Government employee, master builder etc – see, we know, because it’s all here, in the archives) can’t have lived in them all!

        But I am intrigued as I’m thinking of doing a re-write of “The secret life of Walter Mitty” with you cast as Walter. So, which country was it?

      The real reason the left hates new EPA Dir,: BIG GREEN MONEY threatened

      Speaking of money, IMHO, the whole global warming scam is one of the very top issues facing the world, in that it is a way to redistribute money, force socialist centralized control (all while outright LYING about the whole warming issue – cf. the ClimateGate and it’s “hide the decline,” fake hockey sticks, ad nauseam, legerdemain) on a gullible public, foster increased leftist fascism (remember: fascism is formally defined by Mussolini, and later seconded by Hitler’s National Socialist Workers’ Party as the merger of the socialist state and co-opted, crony capitalism that is at the beck and call of the state), and worse.

      The EPA pick of Pruitt was extremely important, and this article is, IMHO, one of the most important to come out in the past week. If you have time to read this short article, please do. Very important http://theresurgent.com/the-real-reason-leftwing-groups-are-freaked-out-by-trumps-epa-pick/

      Has anyone else noticed that the BDI is now heading downward? It’s been going down since before Thanksgiving. It’s now at 1090. That’s less than half of the 2330 peak three years ago.

      It has just finished its third bounce in three years, and the valley between the peaks has been lower each time. The last valley, earlier this year, was 291. How low might the valley be later this year?

      The Bible tells why they will be doing away with cash in America, as Revelations says that you may not buy or sell unless you take the Mark of the Beast, which is mandated Sunday worship and rest. The Pope and his Roman Papacy/Leadership are pushing for a uniting of church and state, all in the name of peace and safety. America the 2nd Beast of Revelations, gives it’s power to the 1st Beast, the Roman Catholic Papacy, by passing a national Sunday Law, and enforcing it with threats of persecution, and even death. The Papacy of the Dark Ages, has it’s wound healed, and becomes a world power again.. This is the battle of Armageddon, Satan vs Jesus, where you either take the Mark of the Beast (Sunday worship), or have the Seal of God the Creator, (4th commandment, Saturday worship). It’s all about who do you worship? Without the 4th commandment, the other nine can pertain to Any God you wish to worship, including Satan, Buddha, Pope, a statue, or Obama.
