Here’s How a Cashless Society Would Affect Day-to-Day Life
by Daisy Luther
Posted September 25, 2020
Have you ever thought about the ramifications of a cashless society? I’m talking about the real, first-person effects, not some ephemeral conspiracy theory or possible biblical prophecy. This is bad news for a lot of reasons, not the least of which are the ways it would affect day-to-day life.
Cash would no longer be legal tender, therefore you could not make purchases with it, pay bills with it, or spend it in any way. You would not be able to deposit cash into your bank account so you wouldn’t be able to accept cash for an exchange of goods or services.
What happens when there’s a Cyprus-style event and the government decides a bail-in is in order? If you don’t recall, back in 2013, billions of dollars were seized from depositors to protect the small country’s banking system. This was done to make good on an $11.6 billion dollar debt owed to creditors outside the country. More…
Send in the Clowns for the Circus Is in Town
by Edward Curtin
Posted September 24, 2020
Don’t bother, they’re here, already performing in the center ring under the big top owned and operated by The Umbrella People.
Trump, Biden, Pence, Harris, and their clownish sidekicks, Pompeo, Michelle Obama, et al., are performing daily under the umbrella’s shadowy protection. For The Umbrella People run a three-ring circus, and although their clowns pop out of separate tiny cars and, acting like enemies, squirt each other with water hoses to the audience’s delight, raucous laughter, and serious attentiveness, they are all part of the same show, working for the same bosses.
Sadly, many people think this circus is the real world and that the clowns are not allied pimps serving the interests of their masters, but are real enemies. More…
From Lockdown to Police State: The “Great Reset” Rolls Out
by Ellen Brown
Posted September 23, 2020
The need to maintain the appearance of a pandemic also explains the inflated reports of cases and deaths. Hospitals have been rewarded with increased fees for reclassifying cases as COVID-19. As deaths declined in the US, the numbers of cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control were also gamed to make it appear that America was in a “second wave” of a pandemic. The reporting criterion was changed on May 18 from people who tested positive for the virus only to people who tested positive for either the virus or its antibodies. The exploding numbers thus include people who have recovered from COVID-19 as well as false positives. The Loughborough and Sheffield researchers found that when controlling for other factors affecting mortality, actual deaths due to COVID-19 are 54% to 63% lower than implied by the standard excess deaths measure.
Forcing compliance with global vaccine mandates is one obvious motive for maintaining the appearance of an ongoing pandemic, but what would be the motive for destroying the global economy with forced lockdowns? What is behind the “agenda to destroy Western society” suspected by Australian commentator Alan Jones?
Evidently it is this: destroying the old is necessary to usher in the new. Global economic destruction paves the way for the “Great Reset” now being promoted by the World Economic Forum, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the International Monetary Fund and other big global players. More…
Exposing War Crimes Should Always Be Legal. Committing And Hiding Them Should Not
by Caitlin Johnstone
Posted September 22, 2020
The Kafkaesque extradition trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange continues, with each frustrating day making it clearer than the day before that what we are watching is nothing other than a staged performance by the US and UK governments to explain why it’s okay for powerful governments to jail journalists who expose inconvenient truths about them.
The Assange defense team is performing admirably, making the arguments they need to make to try and prevent an extradition that will set a precedent which will imperil press freedoms and creating a chilling effect on all adversarial national security investigative journalism around the world. These arguments appear to fall on deaf ears before Judge Vanessa Baraitser, who has from the beginning been acting like someone who has already made up her mind and who has been reading from pre-written judgements at the trial regardless of the points presented to her (an unusual behavior made all the more suspicious by her supervision under Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, who has a massive conflict of interest in this case).

10 Reasons to Use Linux Mint
by Martins D. Okoi
Posted September 22, 2020
Linux Mint is 100% free and open-source so you are well within your right to use it for whatever you choose whether it is for educating people, understanding operating systems better, or for providing proprietary services.
Together with elegance, simplicity, and reliability, security and privacy are at the core of Linux Mint’s philosophy and the developers have made sure that all services running in the OS are respectful of users’ rights to data privacy.
Users are bound to feel at home, or at least, welcome, when using Linux Mint because of its familiar setup to that of Windows. Its configuration and navigation options don’t use text different from other operating systems so it is easy to find what one is looking for. To put in simpler terms, from the time you install the Linux Mint to your first boot, you wouldn’t feel lost and will be able to find your away around without outside help whether you are coming from a Windows, macOS, or non-Linux platform.

The Global Elite Have Far More Control Over Us Than Most People Would Dare To Imagine
by Michael Snyder
Posted September 21, 2020
No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, you probably agree that the global elite have too much power and influence. It has been said that “money is power”, and today that seems to be more true than ever. Those at the very, very top of the pyramid dictate the rules of the game for the rest of us, and there isn’t too much that the rest of us can do about it. When we talk about how the global elite dominate our lives, the focus tends to be on how they influence national governments, but the truth is that is one of the areas where the global elite have the least control. I know that may sound strange, but I believe that things will become clearer by the end of this article.
I would submit that corporations are the primary vehicle that the elite use to control our lives. In fact, many global corporations are now larger and more powerful than most national governments, and collectively the network of global corporations that dominates the planet is far larger and far more powerful than any single national government.
A number of years ago, a remarkable study was conducted that closely examined the interconnecting relationships of major corporations all over the world. That study discovered that a network of 1,318 enormous companies dominated the global economy, and it also found that 147 colossal corporations at the core of that web formed a “super-entity” that controlled 40 percent of the entire network… More…
The Pandemic Pattern – How the Illusion is Built
by Jon Rappoport
Posted September 20, 2020
This article is based on my study and investigation of so-called epidemics over the past 30 years. In the case of COVID-19, I’ve written at least one piece covering, in detail, each main element of the illusion. Here, I’m laying out the pattern. It is the same for each fake epidemic.
Researchers can babble for hours about their vaunted diagnostic test, the PCR. However, the simple truth is, the test has never been vetted. The test has never been tested in the real world outside the lab.
I have written about this extensively. Using a little guideline called SCIENCE, you would “test the test” by lining up, say, a thousand patients, some healthy, some sick from a supposed virus. Any virus. Tissue samples would be taken from each patient.
I include this illustration to indicate there are, indeed, ways of exposing professional liars, if you change the venue on them, if you use common sense, if you stand outside their self-appointed temples of mystical pretense and observe what their lies look like when you boil them down to human terms.

Welcome to THE GLOBAL GULAG…
by Clive P. Maund
Posted September 19, 2020
Let’s start with the timing. Why was the virus, or bioweapon if that’s what it is, released when it was? The answer to that is simple; after years of exponentially increasing fiscal profligacy, debt across all levels of society had risen to wild unsustainable extremes so that the world economic system was teetering on the verge of collapse – witness the Fed’s emergency interventions in the repo markets last Fall.
If the system was about to collapse those in power didn’t want to take the blame for it, so they needed a scapegoat, enter the virus – “Oh it wasn’t our mismanagement that caused the system to implode it was the virus”
In the United States, which is one of the countries that will be hardest hit by the economic meltdown, they are playing a very crafty game by pitting Left against Right and black against white. The name of the game is “divide and conquer” – the masses will be too busy hating and killing each other to go after their joint enemy. So the Left call for draconian State intervention to stop the spread of the virus and the Right call for draconian State intervention to stop the rioting, which was bankrolled by powerful forces.
The World is Waking Up… and It’s Magic to Watch!
By Phillip J. Watt
Posted September 18, 2020
It’s inspiring to witness many of the Earth’s people, especially in the Western world, becoming aware of the deep corruption in our social system — particularly because we are building our innate capacity to actually do something about it.
More and more people now understand that we are ruled via a corporatocracy where the money supply, banking, governmental policy and other vital public infrastructure has been hijacked by oligarchs and the ‘corporate elite’. In addition, public discourse and the official narratives are dictated by the corporate media who are owned by the same people who control politics and macro public policy, as well as the unprecedented wealth they have at their disposal.
