It is characteristic of collapsing regimes that as they feel their subjects turning against them, possibly preparing to rise, they strive to tighten their grip to the maximum. This is happening in the United States as we speak:
Policymakers in Washington have proposed requiring banks to report virtually all their customers’ bank account information and activity to the IRS regardless of the customers’ consent.
While community banks do not endorse such broad IRS access to their customers’ account information, consumers need to be aware of the potential effects of this proposal.
Mandating new, broad bank account reporting to the IRS would infringe on the privacy of bank customers, push more people away from a banking relationship and overload the IRS with more personal information about American citizens than it can possibly process or keep safe from a data hack.
Applause to Mike Miles at 90 Miles from Tyranny for the reference.
Remember, just a few years back, when government economists – and if that doesn’t strike you as a contradiction in terms, it damned well should — were openly proposing the complete elimination of cash? You can count on that idea coming back to their table. Cash is the only truly private transactional medium. The doings of people who buy and sell in cash are known only to themselves. Our omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent federal Leviathan doesn’t want us to have any privacy at all. Privacy makes insurrections and revolutions possible.
The Usurpers are frightened. They’ve heard the talk; they want to know who’s talking it and how serious he is, and they want to put a stop to it right BLEEP!ing now. Why else would the Justice Department and Homeland Security be forming intimate relationships with the giants of Big Tech? Why else would they be straining to eliminate the privacy of our communication via cell phones? Why else would Biden’s puppeteers have told him to mandate The Jab?
Do you think there’d be anything the Usurpers couldn’t learn about you, once your financial and medical dealings have been laid bare?
Once more, with feeling: There is no time. The collapse is in progress. Whether we rise soon or late will determine how bad the destruction will be.
Take it seriously, Gentle Readers:
- Deal in cash, exclusively if possible.
- Know the leanings of those you do business with.
- Keep a significant portion of your savings – at least 10% – in gold and silver.
- Fill your pantry with foods that will keep your family alive and healthy for at least a month.
- Be armed. Be well armed. Before all else, be armed! (With copious thanks to the spirit of Niccolo de Machiavelli.)
I can’t say it loudly enough. Soon I might not be able to say it at all. So take heed.
I want to add something here, from personal knowledge.
The IRS took a hellacious shellacking 20 or so years back (the commissions where people were trotted out to cry about how mean the IRS was). Yes, I know, they’re the Infernal Revenue Service. Bear with me here.
The end result, though, was to badly damage it. The IRS today does not have the personnel it needs, and sometimes the personnel it DOES get is so badly unsuited (read: incompetent) that such persons are jettisoned. Fruits of affirmative action and diversity, baby.
And they want to stack more on the IRS’s plate? Holy 1040 forms, Batman. Hang onto your capes; this is gonna be fun.
If I may add to the above:
Train with your weapons’ of choice and without them. Don’t be the damn fool that pulls and then fumbles, allowing your attacker time to respond while you are focusing on your error. Not so long ago, there was a video of a guy that pulled a freaking bow and arrow on some antifa thugs. While he was trying to nock his arrow, they closed and beat the shit out of him. He got off easy. Pay what you can and get a quality instructor. You’ll make it back in not wasting ammo.
Speaking of ammunition, buy more on the dips. You still don’t have enough. Besides it’s intended use, it’s value makes it a medium for barter.
STFU in public and private unless you know your audience intimately. The ‘muh constitution’ bros never seem to learn that a piece of paper won’t protect you without a society that enforces it. Ask the people rotting in jail from 1/6 about their rights. Ditch those graphic t-shirts and go gray.
Your smartphone provides tracking and surveillance the Stasi could not dream of. Keep that in mind. And burner phones aren’t a panacea, as some have found to their regret.
Harden up your online profile. Get a quality VPN and use it. Keep your gmail account for strictly vanilla comms. Yes, they not only gleefully provide your mail to any authority that asks, but they also read everything. Not OK with that. I used to recommend proton mail for better comms, but they’ve been forced to provide evidence in Europe. My business account is hosted off google, which at least makes it harder for my emails to be read. Keep a separate email for online subscriptions that does not tie back to your physical presence. Pay for that via bitcoin or other less tracible method. And if you’re still trying to shitpost on Facebook, FFS, stop.
In short, hunker down and make yourselves anonymous and ready. The time to remove these leftists may not come in our lifetime, pray though we might that it does, but we can still do what we can for the next generation – if we’re thoughtful.
Last – be humble and ashamed. We let this happen. I pray the Lord may forgive my failings, but even He has His limits.
