America could be standing on the edge of a revolution. Seriously, well, with National Guard troops deployed across the country, any uprising would likely be squashed.
We noted late last month that a “social bomb” was set to detonate over major Western cities. It was thought that the epicenter of unrest could begin deep within inner cities, such as those in Baltimore and Detroit, but that might not be the case.
It appears tensions are soaring among anti-quarantine protesters and state governments. The lockdown backlash started last Thursday in Lansing, Michigan.
Anti-quarantine rallies sprouted up across the country over the weekend, organized by right-wing groups that held rallies in Texas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Nevada, Maryland, Utah, Wisconsin, Washington, and Colorado.
Attempting to show force, some protesters wielded rifles, handguns, and shotguns, along with American flags, Betsy Ross flags, Trump signs and “Don’t Tread On Me” flags right up to the doorsteps of some state capital buildings.
The sight is absolutely stunning, but before we continue, we must understand the right-wing groups that organized the rallies are fed up with quarantine orders enforced by state governments to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While it is open for discussion if the strict lockdowns were worth it, several things are evident, and why many of these protesters are angry, is that the economy has crashed into depression, 22 million jobs lost, businesses bankrupted, and hunger crisis unfolding. Combined this all together, and a perfect storm of unrest could be nearing.
While we could show you images of the latest rallies from across the country, that would be a bit too much. So, let’s focus on the “reopen” Pennsylvania demonstration on Monday (April 20). The location was Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, more specifically, at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex.
The Daily Caller, citing AFP images, captured the moment when an M35 series 2½-ton 6×6 military truck, converted for civilian use, and packed with heavily armed protesters, arrived at the demonstration.
Seen within the rear of the vehicle, protesters were wielding AR-15s and shotguns.
Here’s a video of the “Pennsylvania Militia” rolling up to the rally.

More pictures show the overall crowd at the steps of the capitol building, holding signs that read: “Free PA,” “Tyranny kills,” “Let America Work Again,” and “We Do Not Consent.”
Rallies to “reopen” the American economy unfolded across the country after President Trump tweeted: “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!,” “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!,” and “LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!”
President Trump is eager to reopen the economy and save it from crushing depression. The danger of reviving the economy too soon is that it could spark the second wave of the coronavirus.
With warmer weather trends expected for the US, anti-quarantine rallies are only set to increase.
Philip Giraldi reported in his article today, “A Government Against the People” that the only small businesses that are receiving loans made available through the emergency relief are Israeli companies.
Giraldi also said that the shake-up in the intelligence agencies continues, with loyalty to Trump and Israel being the only litmus tests, which was obvious to anyonne that has been reading various legislative acts that have handed national security over to Israel, lock, stock, and barrel. The only people left in the intelligence agencies will be either complete imbeciles, double-agents, or a combination of the two.
Obviously, Israel and the Jews are panick stricken since they were guilty of the 9/11 attacks, and it is undeniable that the entire financial system, tech sector, and media are totally controlled by Jews, who have been 100% guilty of outright financial fraud, not limited to those in the financial sector, but the Jewish population at large who has disproprtionately benefited financially from an economy that has in fact been based on outright financial fraud that is defiant of all logic and math, which demonstrates that the goal and acheivement of the Jewish run financial and tech sectors has been to enrich the Jewish population at everyone else’s expense, even to the point of destroying the economy and country, and it was all done through the Jewish controlled media.
Who are the real racists here? Follow the money! 70% of Jews in America are millionaires. Considering that there are many Jews that are not of working age, or have been in the job market for a very short period of time, I would have to say that that is extremely unbelieveable that it is not a direct result of racism that favors Jews at the expense of everyone else!
I cannot remain silent any longer. I’m so tired of this crap that gets put on the web. I doubt this post will even make it on. This dumb comment about small business not getting money is ridiculous. I own a small business and have already received money and know plenty of others who have as well. Look it’s a free country and these people can protest if they want to. I’m not necessarily opposed on some businesses reopening in some area’s but I also think that protective precautions/measures should be put in place to do so. There has been so much misinformation out there regarding COVID-19, it’s a bit difficult to make heads or tails of the situation. I have a niece that works as a nurse in NY and she has seen the worst of it. This virus she has seen attack people of all ages and it has been bad for most of them. And then there are other areas where it’s not as bad. For the love of god this is why we prep people, this is why you save money to weather things like this. Maybe people should wake up and stop living paycheck to paycheck, start saving, start prepping, eat healthy and have enough funds put aside to weather something like this. At the end of the day I can choose whether to go out or not. If I do I will wear my PPE for my protection, my families and my neighbors. It’s just the right thing to do.
I have no reason to believe any Anonymous poster that just simply disputes a highly informed and credible intelligence agent like Giraldi. As far as covid, there is total proof that this is as contagious and fatal as a typical flu season. If you are intellectually incapable of arriving at that conclusion with the evidence presented, then you are unquestionable mentally deficient, or just plain old full of shit, like so many people in this cess pool of human waste as an excuse for a country.
Somebody finally figured it out.
Militia? Funny. The Pennsylvania Militia doesn’t wear skinny jeans, DayGlo Nikes, Hawaiin shirts, masks, full body tats, and hardware piercings. They wear camo cargos and lightweight mil grade boots and don’t hold their shotguns sideways like a nig nog. They don’t arrive on the scene in milsurp 6x6s with NAZI emblazoned on the tarp. These guys are hilarious fools.
They are prolly provacateurs from Antifa.
You may be confusing the National Guard with the Militia. They are not the same.
What size is your Asshat you troll Soros commie? Extra large for all the shiott you have for brains. How is Gates treating you when he bends you over?
fools. whats the army truck for it not armored. they are your local gun range tuff guy meat bags. these idiots think they are gonna save america.
I lol’d, but, actually, most of them make some kind of inclusivity statement.
What? More crying about failing businesses?
I thought you were an entrepreneur and believed in capitalism. Look for the new opportunities for a different essential business that will have more demand in current environment. Howz about gravedigger or crematory operator? I’m sure you can think of a few for yourself instead of boohooing all day about it.
Maybe it’s because they go to work everyday.
Maybe they save their money. Maybe you should do the same instead of blaming racism
Maybe your an idiot and do nothing of the above. Poor little you guess we should all pay you to do nothing because your an entitled moron.
To everyone. Ask yourselves this. When they shutdown your work place, did you protest? When they shutdown your favorite restaurant/bar, did you protest? When they told you to stay inside your residence or else, did you protest? When you went to the park by yourself and the police told you to leave, did you protest? If you answered no to any of those questions, would you please move to North Korea? You don’t belong here.
Sputnik’s cointell-propagandists are claiming once again on circular logic that Trump’s decision to stop all immigration into America is a white supremist move.
News flash to Sputnik! There are white people all throughout Europe, Canada, Austrailia, Israel, and Russia that would be affected by this legislation as well!
This may come as a shock to you, but unemployment is the highest that it has ever been in every Americans lifetime!
Maybe CIA Kiriakou never really left America, and was just standing in front of an Oliver Stone back drop, like Ronald Reagan did!
I found an awesome site for preppers. It shows how to recondition and bring back old batteries and I was able to make a profit selling some dead ones I had lying around. I suggest y’all give it a try I’ll leave the link. https://bit.ly/3asPNoa
I fear Tyranny
I fear the Virus.
Don’t burn the Flag, burn the mask.
That’s almost a haiku! I’ll fix it:
I fear tyranny
More than I fear the virus.
Please don’t burn the flag!
Open it all up and see what happens next. You’ll die. There is no cure and no control over who spreads what.
National Guard put down a rebellion? I doubt that one seriously. 1. They are no better than cops. 2. During the winter all of their heavy weapons were taken from them by the Army. The heaviest arms they have are their M-4s. They don’t even have light machine guns anymore. 3. There are only 14,000 NG personnel FOR ALL 50 STATES. 4. The military including the NG have the same anti-public mentality as cops. They would be better off changing out of those uniforms and just blending in. Anyone who pulls a weapon on me will get lead poisoning regardless of what they’re wearing.
I used to do some work with NG folks. Many will go along and follow orders, but most dont want to follow unconstitutional orders or fire upon Americans. Its not what they signed up for.
Next, youre right about numbers, armament, and capability. Significant numbers will go AWOL if civilians start shooting back. The NG on the whole are good folks, and who want to go home to their families and dont want to hurt Americans. Many will stand down. Many will desert. The remainder will be outgunned and outmanned. They have better training than the average civilian, but most militia types are more tactically proficient and spend more time training, including in their own AO.
I am with you in that i doubt the NG alone could put down a rebellion.
This is a disease that kills sick and/or unhealthy people. Very elderly folks in nursing homes, morbidly obese people with diabetes and other diseases, people with lung disease, heavy smokers, young vapers. People with low vitamin D levels. Extremely low chance of death for healthy folks. Load up on vitamin D. Also, Asians and Africans have more Ace receptors in their lungs. Making some of them more vulnerable.
If you want to reopen the country, the solution is simple: EVERYONE WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC!
No matter what government officials say, wearing an N-95 or N-100 mask is the easiest, simplest way to prevent the spread of a RESPIRATORY virus.
If you don’t have N-95, N-100 masks, thick cloth masks will help reduce the amount of virus that you inhale.
BREATHING is the action that spreads a respiratory virus, along with talking, sneezing, coughing, spitting, singing, and shouting.
When we’re in enclosed areas (stores, libraries, restaurants, etc.), or outside and in close proximity to another breathing human being, we are INHALING THEIR EXHALATIONS, and if those exhalations contain a respiratory virus, we can become infected.
You can bathe in alcohol, and drench your counters, door knobs, and other inanimate objects in bleach, but if you continue to breathe the air unmasked, air that others are breathing, you are at risk.
Whether this virus is real or not, whether this virus is lethal or causes only mild symptoms, and whether this virus is man made or a naturally occurring virus, is at this point, of no importance.
What we can be absolutely sure of is that government will use every opportunity and situation, whether real or promulgated, to gain greater power and control over the masses, and to increase surveillance.
Right now, engaging in useless debate is counter productive, and serves only as a distraction.
If at all possible, everyone should become as independent and detached from the system as is humanly possible, and to take every precaution to minimize their risk of infection.
Notherenotnow, but, but, the government told us for four months that we didn’t need to wear masks. Why did they change their minds? Because it’s all a scam. And they’re looting the wealth of our nation now. Right now, 47,000 dead. Regular flu season, 80,000 dead. And they’re counting all deaths as covid 19 deaths. Red flag alert.
Did anyone notice the writing on the back of the truck?
“Nazis It’s Time To Get Back To Work”
What is it with disaster preparedness and nazis?
