Great Replacement Redux 4

image: great replacement
TWENTY ONE YEARS LATER, President Ronald Reagan signed into law amnesty for more than three million illegal aliens who had entered the country. President Reagan then promised the new employer sanctions would"remove the incentive for illegal immigration by eliminating the job opportunities,” and that the law’s amnesty provision would allow millions who were hiding in the shadows to “step into the sunlight.” ... And now, another 21 years later, we hear the same language as the pro-amnesty and open borders advocates demand that American citizens ignore history, reason and the national interest. They are again marketing the same false assurances about border enforcement and insist there will be no social or economic cost to the taxpayer or the nation. More than four decades of disruptive and destructive immigration policy initiatives should be a sufficient history lesson for all Americans.

The Republican Party’s flirtation with pro-worker politics is both absurd and clever. It allows them to claim that racial and gender diversity and inclusion (not to mention anti-racism and anti-sexism) are somehow ploys of the woke - read ‘Jewish’ - elites to rob the ordinary (white) person of what they supposedly earned through hard work. Further, efforts to oppose racism, even symbolically, are portrayed as an assault on “American” history and the white population - the victims of a woke agenda that OPPRESSES “STRAIGHT WHITE MEN”.

This illusory pro-worker conservatism has nothing to do with labor rights… Rather, it is an opportunistic attempt to create a united front of the supposedly productive classes and fractions of American society against the supposedly parasitic forces - both elites and “Others” ( foreign-born and domestic) - that are draining the country of its national strength.

This was just as true in the lead-up to the Nazi domination of Germany. In fact, a wing of the Nazi Party focused on trying to win the German working class to Nazism.

The capitalist class is hoping and praying that white workers, in particular, will value their “white uniform” rather than recognize that they are being crushed - not by the poor, not by immigrants of color, not by people of color, not by those challenging heterosexism, but by those who never seem to be able to squeeze enough wealth out of the bodies of working people.
- Republican Redux Part 24, 2021
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty
- George Washington’s Farewell Address, 1796
White Americans have been discriminated against ever since Alfred Blumrosen broke the law in the 1960s and imposed discriminatory racial quotas. White Americans did nothing about their loss of constitutional protection. Consequently, after more than a half century of institutionalized racism against white Americans, white people cannot even get a job. In 2021 blacks comprised 12.6% of the population and got 94% of the new jobs. Whites comprised 59.3% of the population and got 4% of the jobs.

What does it take to turn the anger of despairing men into violence? The grief and antagonism that erupt after every school shooting focus on either a prevailing gun culture or mental health problems, but masculinity is surely an indispensable component. Research has shown that the roots of these paroxysms of violence are in the toxic relationship between “masculinity threat” a mans individual perception that he cannot live up to the ideals of dominant masculinity - and a cultural betrayal, the sense that men are owed something they are no longer getting.

Theory?  I doubt it.  This isn’t scapegoating Latinos, Mexicans, WELFARE APPLICANTS, or some other easy target.

It may have been the CRUSHING of the middle-class from jobs being OUTSOURCED, offshored, and union-busting - was done in the name of corporate greed with the blessings of government - shining a light on political corruption, corporate cronyism, and disregard for 99 PERCENT of the public, but today’s immigration thing is a step up in its sheer numbers from THE PAST.

The democrats letting them in can get lots of VOTES from their gratitude, and giving them money can help the economy because they’ll spend it right away, but there gotta be more to it than that.  If the establishment means to turn it into a class war, I hope we’re smart enough to realize the immigrants aren’t the enemy, and we’re all - even SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD kids - PAWNS of the ruling class.

Maybe not today, but soon enough we’ll SEE what’s in plain sight to our BLIND EYES, and when we do, hopefully not repeat history by taking to the streets and attacking our neighbors like we did back in the 60s when I was in gang fights of black vs white, before MARTIN LUTHER KING brought peace between us, and the next thing you know, we’re breaking bread together.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set forth the goal. Civil rights and union membership were to be intertwined. The labor movement, Dr. King wrote in 1958, “must concentrate its powerful forces on bringing economic emancipation to white and Negro by organizing them together in social equality.”

The intent of whatever PROPAGANDA the ruling class spreads, is to distract us from figuring out it’s them screwing us all, by getting us to hate everyone, and not care what they may be doing.

We’ve been replacing American workers for over 20 years.

Men - especially white men - TRADITIONALLY made up most of the workforce - so they they get hit the worst.

In it’s latest “Labor force characteristics by race and ethnicity, 2022,” the BLS REPORTS:

Among adult men (20 years and older) in the largest race and ethnicity groups (White, Black, Asian, and Hispanic), Hispanics were the most likely to be in the labor force, with a participation rate of 79.5 percent, and Blacks were the least likely, with a rate of 68.0 percent. The labor force participation rate was 74.9 percent and 70.1 percent for Asian adult men and White adult men, respectively. Among adult women, Blacks (62.0 percent) were more likely to participate in the labor force than were Hispanics (59.9 percent), Asians (59.5 percent), and Whites (57.1 percent). Among teenagers (16 to 19 years), Whites were more likely to participate in the labor force than were other groups, with a participation rate of 39.0 percent, followed by Hispanic teens (33.2 percent) and Black teens (29.8 percent). Asian teens were the least likely to participate in the labor force at 23.0 percent.

In 2003 “outsourcing to India” caused KEVIN FLANAGAN to KILL HIMSELF.

In the months leading up to his 2003 suicide, Bank of America had forced Flanagan and his colleagues to train their foreign replacements before laying them off. These transplants entered the United States on the H-1B worker visa. After months of the humiliation of having to train his replacement, a BROKEN Flanagan climbed into his truck and shot himself in the head the day Bank of America let him go.

In 2007, we learned corporate America was BRINGING IN immigrants to replace us under H1-B WORK VISAS with this INSULTING VIDEO on skirting labor laws:

A video posted on YouTube is stirring anger and debate in Silicon Valley. It shows attorneys with Cohen & Grigsby telling their corporate clients how to get around Federal rules around hiring foreign workers.

A Reddit poster last month WRITES:

I noticed a trend starting early last year, the company starting doing layoffs at first for the tier 1 soc roles and helpdesk, not all of them but a good amount, then after a week or so we were introduced to NEW TEAM MEMBERS FOR THE SAME ROLES THAT WERE LAID OFF BUT THEY WERE BASED IN INDIA.

The employers of legal immigrants with WORK VISAS replacing American workers may get tax breaks for doing it.


The OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING (OPT) program, in which the AMERICAN GOVERNMENT pays American employers to discriminate against American workers has grown rapidly in recent years, and during FY 2017 it used nearly $2 billion swiped from trust funds for the elderly to favor 240,000 alien college grads over an equal number of U.S.-resident grads.

In April 2023 EPI WROTE:

The top 30 H-1B employers hired more than 34,000 new H-1B workers in 2022 and laid off 85,000 employees

Working America has been in big trouble for decades.

Government lets it happen, and propagandizes the opposite, while our quality of life KEEPS GOING DOWN:

Lowered expectations and acquiescence in long term working-class HARDSHIP are now built into what we are told to regard as RECOVERY.

20 years ago they knew outsourcing American’s jobs and production overseas, was gonna end up hurting the middle-class.

They must know that flooding the country with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants is gonna hurt us too.

Now they may be weaponizing immigrants and refugees to destroy society from inside.

It almost seems there may be a conspiracy by our own leaders to bring down our own country - and maybe NATO WITH IT:

NATO would be significantly weaker if the United States was not a member. Overall, NATO would lose around half of its strength in troops, tanks, aircraft, and warships

A 2022 article in Reuters READS:

Spain, as host of an upcoming NATO SUMMIT, will push for the inclusion of “hybrid threats” such as irregular migration, food insecurity and terrorism in the alliance’s new policy roadmap, Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares said in an interview.

If President Trump wins the 2024 election, he may PULL THE U.S. OUT OF NATO:

Last month, NATO, the world’s most successful military alliance, celebrated its 75th anniversary. Some fear that it may have been its last anniversary with the United States playing a leading role. Former U.S. President Donald Trump still views the alliance as obsolete. If reelected, he says he would encourage Russian leaders to do “whatever the hell they want” to member states that do not pay what he considers to be enough for defense.

Even though they seemed to play down the FORMER FOX NEWS REPORTER, I think POLITIFACT did a good job listing the “great replacement” issues:

The “great replacement theory” is white supremacist rhetoric that warns of an elaborate conspiracy by Democratic and Western elites - and possibly orchestrated by Jewish people - to systematically replace white Americans with non-white people through immigration, interracial marriage and other means. Online writings linked to the gunman show he was motivated by a belief that the white race was dying out, like several other mass shooters before him.

But Carlson has routinely invoked the ideas at the center of the theory, warning that Democrats including President Joe Biden have weaponized immigration as a political tool to strengthen their voting bloc, weaken the power of white people and seize permanent government control.

The New York Times reported that Carlson has “amplified the idea that Democratic politicians and others want to force demographic change through immigration” in more than 400 episodes of his show “Tucker Carlson Today,” totaling over 50 hours devoted to that theme.

What’s this about mass shootings and gunman?  I think the PROBLEM is related to LOW INCOME, a LOUSY LIFE, and all the other THINGS being POOR comes with:

Counties with growing levels of income inequality are more likely to experience mass shootings. We assert that one possibility for this finding is that income inequality fosters an environment of anger and resentment that ultimately leads to violence.

About immigrants and demographics, I’ve seen news over the years about letting them vote.


On inauguration day (Jan. 20, 2021), President Biden signed an EXECUTIVE ORDER to ensure the Census Bureau counted all residents, including undocumented immigrants. The order stated, “At no point since our Nation’s founding has a persons immigration status alone served as a basis for excluding that person from the total population count used in apportionment.” President Trump had pushed to have undocumented immigrants not counted as residents, presumably to reapportion House seats away from states with high numbers of undocumented immigrants.

NPR WROTE in December 2021:

Lawmakers in New York City have approved legislation that will allow about 800,000 legal non-citizens to vote in local elections…

Immigrants are counted for districting purposes.

I like to think Hitler is dead, but his evil may still be alive through the hearts and souls of people with tremendous power, and tremendous influence, including - if there really is a conspiracy - the people behind it.

Politicians may let big company executives get away with hollowing out the middle-class for their own selfish financial gain, or the pleasure of watching us suffer, but like we witnessed with covid - lockdowns, censorship, and blind obedience to follow authoritarians’ directions to stick ourselves with dangerous drugs - they can flip the switch to full-blooded totalitarianism anytime. But, they may get the same pushback from those of us that refused to wear covid masks, challenging NIH leader Fauci’s head games that DIDN’T WORK.

Thanks to Trump supporters in the beginning, and others who refuse mask mandates today - TO THE EXTREME of getting in physical fights, the globalists and politicians in their pockets may be wondering if they can control us as easily as they may have thought when they published that COVID-19, GREAT RESET BOOK.

The other TOTALITARIAN WANNA BE - PRESIDENT BIDEN - and his BARKING at all of us to GET VACCINATED or feel his WRATH - isn’t doing too well either, even though he’s threatening US citizens like me and you to get a shot or not be able to do things like walk in public.

Besides pledging their loyalty to their American saviors, giving the illegals free money and homes may help get more money in circulation, hiding how bad our economy really is, and they probably won’t push away the next covid kool-aide if asked to drink, or go AWOL if drafted.

The Center For Imigration Studies in 2022 WRITES:

United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR), which receives billions in U.S. taxpayer money, is handing out cash debit cards and other funds for lodging and prescription medicines to U.S.-bound migrants who spill out into this southern Mexican city by the hundreds of thousands.

Paul Craig Roberts NOTES:

EVERYONE KNOWS that the IMMIGRANT-INVADERS are not “refugees” from oppression. Official US statistics document"refugees" from 160 countries. As there are only 200 countries, that would mean 80% of countries are tyrannies from which people are refugees.

A new documentary by the EPOCH TIMES asks more questions and begs more answers.

Over 7.2 million illegal immigrants have entered the United States since President Joe Biden came into office. This record border crisis is not organic, behind it are official policies, heavy financing, and agreements between the U.S. government and the United Nations.

The world is watching different pieces of this unfold, with video of groups of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States, not trying to evade border patrol, but rather waiting to be arrested. What is being left out of the discussion is: Why?

This Epoch Original Documentary “Weapons of Mass Migration” exposes how the United States and United Nations work hand-in-hand to facilitate mass migration, which is being weaponized to destroy America.

Directed and hosted by Joshua Philipp, senior investigative reporter and host of EpochTV’s Crossroads, he sets out to investigate what is really taking place behind the border crisis and why is it being carried out.

I often think the ignorance of the masses, and rulers blinded by greed and lust for power - would be our undoing.

If not, ALL OF US WOULD BE JOINING today’s campus protests against U.S. support of Israel’s extermination of the Palestinian people.

CAYCE MAY BE RIGHT about his prophesy and the ongoing Russia/Ukraine war going on over two years.

In Russia there comes the hope of the world, not as that sometimes termed of the communistic, or Bolshevik, no; but freedom, freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man! The principle has been born. It will take years for it to be crystallised, but out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.

When/if Ukraine looses, that’ll be a blow to NATO, and weaken the alliance, REGARDLESS HOW MANY MORE COUNTRIES are joining to pick their side FOR WORLD WAR THREE.

So, back to that question - why?

NATO’s collapse may do more good to turn back the DOOMSDAY CLOCK - than any peace negotiations by U.S. WARMONGERS.  Just last month the UNITED STATES VETOED Palestine’s request for UN membership, something overwhelmingly approved by other countries.

Imagine if the world realizes peace because Trump wins the 2024 elections, pulls the U.S. out of NATO, and using his NEGOTIATING STYLE, helps end the bloodshed of the Russian/Ukraine and Israel/Palestine conflicts?

He’s already THE SAVIOR for victimized white America.

Trump rallies build a sense of community among “mostly older white men and women who lived paycheck to paycheck retired or close to it, estranged from their families or otherwise without children… Trump had made their lives richer.” He noted how Trump supporters came to share homes and transportation, form relationships, and chant the same slogans (like “Build the wall") in unison. I would add that those slogans can get so much uglier: “Fuck those dirty beaners” and “Fuck Islam” are anything but unheard of.

Imagine, Trump and Putin - two guys I would never have figured - save the world.

Then, a few years later - RIGHT OUT OF SCRIPTURE - ARMEGEDDON.

In a study of all the passages that relate to the end time, it becomes clear that there are three major time periods between the Rapture and the Second Coming. The first is the period of preparation, a relatively short period, in which the TEN-NATION KINGDOM EMERGES. Its leader rises to conquer first three and then all ten kingdoms. When this leader becomes powerful, because of his backing of the ten kingdoms, he is able to make the covenant with Israel for seven years described in DANIEL 9:27. This introduces the second period of time, which covers the first half of the seven years mentioned in the covenant. In the middle of the seven years, however, a dramatic change takes place, and the ruler of the ten kingdoms becomes a world dictator, apparently without a war. This sets the stage for the third period, the last three-and-a-half years leading up to the second coming of Christ. Accordingly, there is first a period of preparation leading up to the seven-year period. Then there will be three-and-a-half years of peace, the second period, and this will be followed by the third of great trouble and tribulation. The third period will be followed immediately by the Second Coming.

What lies ahead MAY HAVE OTHER SURPRISES, and may be worse, if the conspiracy theory crowd is right and the adrenochrome filled EVILDOERS and WEF take over the planet, and except for themselves, see the rest of us as the “USELESS_CLASS”, using that as a reason to EXTERMINATE MOST OF HUMANITY, saving the finite resources of the planet for themselves.


The Global Compact for Migration is the first-ever UN global agreement on a common approach to international migration in all its dimensions. The global compact is non-legally binding. It is grounded in values of state sovereignty, responsibility-sharing, non-discrimination, and human rights, and recognizes that a cooperative approach is needed to optimize the overall benefits of migration, while addressing its risks and challenges for individuals and communities in countries of origin, transit and destination.

While white America disappears into a new multinational society, the PALESTINIAN people disappear from GENOCIDE by the ZIONISTS of the holy land.

Whether the future is TOTALITARIANISM, a DESPOT DICTATOR, Jesus’ SECOND COMING, GREAT RESET, or NEW WORLD ORDER where we’ll “all own nothing and be happy,” “the great replacement” of something is HERE.


20 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.

Imagine a world with no borders dividing countries and resources, with no more petty wars over who owns what land.

Imagine the leader of that world.

NWO - Money’s Grim Future

image: book the final countdown
Richistan wealth may prove artificial and crash, bringing an end to the new Gilded Age. But the plight of the rich in distress will never compare to the decimation of America’s middle class. The offshoring of American jobs has destroyed opportunities for generations of Americans.  Never before in our history has the elite had such control over the government.  To run for national office requires many millions of dollars, the raising of which puts our elected representatives and our president himself at the beck and call of the few moneyed interests that financed the campaigns. America as the land of opportunity has passed into history.

What is the WEF Transhumanist movement? Although their stated objectives are cloaked in tones of benevolent concern, they are more or less open about the fact that they want to trade our self-governed and representative democracies in for AI-managed surveillance systems that will ration resources and keep tabs on individual performances. The proposed tools for this include, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), Social Impact Investing, and gamified software for education, health monitoring, welfare recipient monitoring, and job skills training.
- NWO And Free Will
As technology surges forward, our world teeters on the precipice of a significant shift in global finance. The imminent threat? Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), which are government-controlled digital currencies that provide authorities with unparalleled power to surveil, control, and manipulate the financial existence of billions.

Abuse CAN ONLY take place if enough people are silent about it, which is to say that those who are silent about the abuse are complicit in it. EVIL can only PLAY ITSELF OUT without restraint when good people see what is happening and do nothing. Staying silent in the PRESENCE OF ABUSE, though seemingly a passive role, is to unwittingly play an active role enabling our own victimization.
- Paul Levy
Refusing to actively resist injustice and flagrant violations of international law, refusing to attempt to turn back the tide of American tyranny, is surrender. It is the death of hope… To resist, while there is still time, is not only the highest form of spirituality but the highest form of patriotism.

Money’s Grim Future

By Alan Lash
Brownstone Institute
May 15, 2024

Prepare for total control of your economic life. That is the message from Brownstone Fellow Aaron Day at his 4-hour workshop in San Jose, California last Saturday, May 11.

Day has written the excellent book THE FINAL COUNTDOWN, which carefully describes the increasingly aggressive assaults on our freedoms by our government and by the global elites. He has just begun a series of workshops around the country to deliver that message and to show us a way to resist. The book was published just last year, but Day acknowledges during the presentation that he had to make alarming updates to his slides from current news, not even weeks old - more government intrusion, more legislation, and more spurious arrests, all attacking our ability to interact freely and transact our business.

As in the book, the presentation begins with a fictional account of a family set in the near future in a Western democracy, but perhaps all too familiar to current denizens of China, with their controlled currency and social credit scores. The image is easy to dismiss; it could never happen here. And yet, Day goes on to show how it actually is happening here. With a litany of article after article, official statement after statement, and video after video he makes his case. It is happening he leaves no doubt.

Day gives ample historical reference points as well. How did we get here? It has been a long time coming. The constant push of globalist powers to remove our freedoms and control all resources has been in the works for a century. Perhaps it has never been different; the powerful seek more power, and the levers of technocracy make that easier than ever. The difference now is that the reach is truly global. There has been ever-increasing control over food, water, energy, and even the space we occupy and the air we breathe.

The particular focus of the workshop is on CDBCs in America and throughout the West. Our central bank has been developing digital currency for some time, hoping to eliminate our ability to keep our business to ourselves. In this new world, all our actions can be easily monitored, tracked, and nudged into whatever direction the elites deem right or beneficial to their wealth and status.

Within the two hours of historical facts, somber reflections, and sometimes horrifying news, the audience did not sit quietly and take the emotional beating. On the contrary, there was already much knowledge of these events, grunts of awareness, gasps of disbelief - we all knew it, but perhaps didn’t know it was this bad, with all the detail that Day presented.

Digital currency is in the works, folks, and it is undoubtedly coming, sooner than we all think. One more emergency is all it could take for the government to say we are all doing this now.

The audience was generally older, probably retired, or with a nest egg they were hoping to protect from debasement. A lively bunch, clearly committed to freedom, voiced their questions often in the quickly paced session. Each query exhibited a tacit but palpable urgency from the attentive crowd, who are all fully aware that what Day exposits is not some futuristic dystopian fantasy, but soon to be the new reality as he predicts.

The age of the audience is to be expected, perhaps: with time and money on their hands, they are probably more aware of the unfolding events with a perspective of history and have more wealth to lose. Indeed, many of the questions the audience asked centered around their ability to maintain their legacy when a CDBC replaces the dollar - how do I protect my assets when the currency falls and centralized control follows?

But that is not the point, says Day. The point is not that our money is a store of value; the point is that it is a medium of exchange. It is not the inherent value of gold or crypto that is important, whether it goes up or goes down; its importance is its utility and its freedom from tracking by the State

Viewing the importance of money through this lens of freedom and impact on the future, we could easily see that those with truly the most to lose were largely not present at the workshop. The young adults - whose lives will be impacted the most gravely should the economic stranglehold ensue - will not make their financial decisions freely according to their own obligations, their own goals, and their own dreams.

Every purchase will ultimately have to pass the test of the State’s agenda: did they use too much gas or too much water? Did they say something against the State? Will it be possible for them to attain the kind of comfort that their parents attained, out of the State’s watchful eye? If Day’s CDBC roadmap to economic tyranny is deployed, he clearly demonstrates what follows, and he proves it by citing recent events.

The second part of the workshop focuses on what can possibly be done to counter this insidious march into economic slavery. Unfortunately, as Day describes, it is not possible to simply pack up and move out. Even with ample wealth and mobility, escape is not possible. Day recounts the stories of several colleagues who tried a different way - many of them arrested for saying too much and being too influential. Live in a different country? Doesn’t matter. We’ll call our people there and have you picked up.

No, the only true way to BEAT this movement into CDBC tyranny is to stand in the light and refuse to participate. Use other methods to transact your business wherever you can and get others to do likewise. See which businesses will accept payment in crypto, and get yourself a wallet. Giving the waiter a tip? Give her a Goldback.

As Day also makes clear, no one such solution will work; we have to use them all, as the effort to undermine the options is well underway. You may have heard that the largest threat to the dollar, Bitcoin, has been subverted into a system to be CONTROLLED BY INSIDERS, who are ultimately influenced by the State. Roger Ver’s recent book, Hijacking Bitcoin, tells this story. Tellingly, Ver, a citizen of St. Kitts since 2014, was ARRESTED in Spain at the behest of the US just weeks ago.

Day explains that this is the point of using EVERY WAY POSSIBLE to SIDESTEP the use of the dollar. IF ONE METHOD gets too big IT BECOMES COMPROMISED BY ATTACKS OF THE STATE.

The other important takeaway from the workshop is the idea of self-custody. Any crypto account you keep, or any asset anywhere, should be kept under your own custody, where only you have the keys. This is not possible with many cryptocurrencies by their construction, and not possible if you leave custody with a bank. Its a lot harder for the State to go after millions of anonymous accounts than to go after one central repository that has the keys. Day notes which cryptos do and donҒt allow self-custody. If you trade crypto through a large exchange, they too will most likely keep the keys.

I have only touched on the depth and breadth of Aaron Days workshop. It is well worth the time to understand the evil before us and practical ways to combat it. We will all need to work together to keep our financial freedom. Get in touch with Aaron via EMAIL and ask him to visit your city and present his workshop, or sign up to receive information through his WEBSITE. Share those valuable lessons with your family and friends, and pay particular attention to the youth. It is their world being taken from them before they even get the chance to call it their own. 

Every attendee walked out of the workshop empowered with practical tools for resisting the move to CBDC. We each had a crypto wallet set up on our phone, to which one of AaronҒs sponsors donated $5 in self-custody crypto. We also left with a New Hampshire Goldback, currently worth $5, and a Citizens for Sound Money 1/5 oz round of silver worth about $5. As Aaron explained, there is growing acceptance of these forms of payment everywhere. Goldbacks can be used in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, New Hampshire, and South Dakota. The workshop also included a signed copy of Aarons book.

On my drive back home after the workshop I met some friends at a local pub. I tried out my newfound power as I attempted to buy a beer with the Goldback, going through all the waiters all the way up to the owner. He looked the gold foil leaf up and down examining the obvious care and purpose in its making. He scowled. “I don’t think so,” he said.

We have a ways to go in California. I for one will keep trying, and encourage all to join me in the pursuit of economic freedom.

Household Debt Rose by $184 Billion in Q1 2024; Delinquency Transition Rates Increased Across All Debt Types

Press Release
New York Fed
May 14, 2024

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Center for Microeconomic Data today issued its QUARTERLY REPORT ON HOUSEHOLD DEBT AND CREDIT. The report shows total household debt increased by $184 billion (1.1%) in the first quarter of 2024, to $17.69 trillion. The report is based on data from the New York Fed’s nationally representative CONSUMER CREDIT PANEL.

The New York Fed also issued an accompanying LIBERTY STREET ECONOMICS BLOG POST examining credit card utilization and its relationship with delinquency. The Quarterly Report also includes a one-page summary of key takeaways and their supporting data points.

“In the first quarter of 2024, credit card and auto loan transition rates into serious delinquency continued to rise across all age groups,” said Joelle Scally, Regional Economic Principal within the Household and Public Policy Research Division at the New York Fed. “An increasing number of borrowers missed credit card payments, revealing worsening financial distress among some households.”

Mortgage balances rose by $190 billion from the previous quarter and was $12.44 trillion at the end of March. Balances on home equity lines of credit (HELOC) increased by $16 billion, representing the eighth consecutive quarterly increase since Q1 2022, and now stand at $376 billion. Credit card balances decreased by $14 billion to $1.12 trillion. Other balances, which include retail cards and consumer loans, also decreased by $11 billion.

First Lawsuit Against New York’s New Voter Protection Law

image: nassau country court
A new voting rights law in New York is already having a dramatic effect, with lawsuits in several local communities seeking to reverse decades of voter disenfranchisement that prevents minorities from electing representatives of their choice.
Shortly after the Democrats took control of New York government, they passed the nation’s harshest laws restricting voter choice to keep Greens and other grassroots candidates off the ballot.

[T]the Green Party recently lost its ballot line in New York State because its candidate did not meet a strict new voter threshold - 2 percent of the total votes cast in the 2020 presidential election. And so to get on the New York ballot this year, the Green Party must gather 45,000 signatures in a six-week window that closes at the end of May.

Lawsuits under New Yorks new voting rights law reveal racial disenfranchisement even in blue states

By Ayanna Alexander
AP News
April 20, 2024

Weihua Yan had seen dramatic demographic changes since moving to Long Islands Nassau County.

Its Asian American population alone had grown by 60% since the 2010 census. Why then, he wondered, did he not see anyone who looked like him on the county’s local governing body, the 19-member Nassau County Legislature?

Last year, he decided to do something about it and ran for one of the seats. He pulled together a campaign team that knocked on 10,000 doors and developed what they believed would be a solid strategy - focusing on their potential base: white Democrats and people of color, especially Asian voters.

The strategy worked to drive voter turnout, but it didn’t help Yan win. His bid to become the first Asian American on the county’s governing body fell short, and he thinks he knows why.

Minority residents and voter advocates blame a redistricting process overseen by the county Legislature, which has a Republican majority. They say the county political map drawn after the 2020 census was done to mostly preserve the existing power structure, and in doing so prevented minority voters from electing a board that was more representative of the area’s burgeoning diversity.

The county is now facing a lawsuit over those maps. Four Latino residents and a local civil rights organization sued the Legislature earlier this year, claiming it manipulated the mapmaking process to dilute the influence of the county’s Black, Latino and Asian communities. Whites are just 56% of the county’s nearly 1.4 million people but comprise nearly 80% of its governing body.

Yan isnt part of the lawsuit, but said he supports its goal.

“When I look at Nassau County, there’s been an increase in population of Asian communities ever since I moved here 16 years ago,” he said. “However, there was not a single elected office held in Nassau County by Asian Americans. So for me, we really have to make sure that we have our own true representation.”

The action against Nassau County is one of at least four lawsuits that have been filed under NEW YORK’S VOTING RIGHTS ACT, which was enacted two years ago. New York is among at least seven mostly Democratic-controlled states that TOOK ACTION TO PROTECT VOTING RIGHTS after lawmakers became frustrated by the tide of new VOTING RESTRICTIONS in many Republican-led states after the 2020 election and the failure of voting rights legislation in Congress.

The lawsuits, which include challenges filed against Mount Pleasant, Cheektowaga and Newburgh, help dispel a longstanding narrative that racial voting discrimination happens only in the South or in deeply Republican states.

“New York is not immune from racial inequity and racial vote dilution simply because it may tend to vote more in a progressive way than Southern states,” said Perry Grossman, who is director of voting rights at the New York Civil Liberties Union and helped writethe new state law.

Under the federal Voting Rights Act, some states and local governments were required to get approval in advance from the U.S. Department of Justice before making voting-related changes because of their history of discrimination. That practice, known as preclearance, was effectively ended by a 2013 SUPREME COURT RULING.

Although Nassau County wasn’t subject to the preclearance provision, it had a history of racial segregation since the early 1900s, especially related to housing and policing, according to the lawsuit. The Ku Klux Klan held rallies and burned crosses THROUGHOUT NASSAU COUNTY in the 1920s.

“Drastic differences remain today between communities that are affluent and mostly white and ones that are more diverse,” said Lucas Sanchez, co-executive director of New York Communities for Change, which is a plaintiff in the Nassau County lawsuit.

“Long Island is a place that was built on the principle of exclusion, that was built on the principle of segregation,” he said. “The map, as it stands, keeps us away from the table, denies us seats at the table, and this is why weҒre a part of this lawsuit.”

Mary Studdert, spokeswoman for the Nassau County Legislature Republican Majority, said the current map conforms to the law and is a result of public feedback that combines communities of interest.

The lawsuit paints a different picture. It says the map splits minority communities or combines them with others that are starkly different, diluting the political power of their voters.

The lawsuit cites the village of Freeport, which is nearly 44% Latino and 32% Black. Under the countys map, part of the village was folded into a district that includes Merrick, which is predominantly white. The districtҒs representative more than likely will always be someone from Merrick, said Maria Jordan-Awalom, a plaintiff who is Latina and a Freeport resident.

She said a dearth of parks and poor roads is one way to distinguish Freeport from Merrick. She also referenced a local BLACK LIVES MATTER protest in 2020 as an example of the towns’ differences. She and at least 100 demonstrators marched along what she called an imaginary wall between Freeport and Merrick. Local media reported on a public outcry from Merrick residents, some telling the protesters to “go back West” to Freeport.

“We’re not connected in any way,” said Jordan-Awalom, who also is president of the Freeport School Board. “For the decision-makers to make this choice, to connect us and lump us with this community that doesn’t even want to be a part of our community and doesn’t want to have any relationship with us as residents, its just mind-boggling.”

The village of New Hyde Park, which also was mentioned in the lawsuit, provides another example showing how the redistricting process has diluted the voting power of minority communities.

Nearly a third of its residents are Asian, but it was stripped from the district where Yan lives during the latest round of map-drawing. Added instead was Manhasset, which is overwhelmingly white. Yan plans to run again, but the district’s boundaries donҒt seem to give him a successful route, advocates said.

“I dont want this opportunity to pass because, win or lose, I’ve always wanted to make sure that Asian Americans have the right representation,” Yan said. “Without people representing us, we don’t have a voice at the table.”

Redistricting experts expect more lawsuits under the new state voting rights acts, especially if current litigation succeeds. But Grossman, of the Civil Liberties Union, hopes the challenges become more of a lesson that pushes jurisdictions to focus on improving parks, libraries, schools and other amenities in minority communities.

My hope is that what these initial cases do is provide the foundation for a lot more collaborative resolution because my strong preference is not to see taxpayer money going to litigation,” he said. “I hope that local governments in New York and elsewhere see state voting rights acts as an opportunity to do better.”

The Gen-Z Economy

image: retirement poll
As an economist, I am astonished that the American economics profession has no awareness whatsoever that the U.S. economy has been destroyed by the offshoring of U.S. GDP to overseas countries. U.S. corporations, in pursuit of absolute advantage or lowest labor costs and maximum CEO performance bonuses, have moved the production of goods and services marketed to Americans to China, India, and elsewhere abroad. When I read economists describe offshoring as free trade based on comparative advantage, I realize that there is no intelligence or integrity in the American economics profession.
- Truth Has Fallen And Has taken Liberty With It, Paul Craig Roberts, 2010
The national debt has never been higher. Consumer debt has never been higher. Savings have never been lower. The trade deficit has never been higher. The dollar is spectacularly weak. Foreclosures are mushrooming. Quality jobs are disappearing in droves. People are working longer to maintain the same standard of living, or often less. Employers are economizing, among other ways, by cutting healthcare benefits. Real estate values are plummeting.
-The Fire This Time, 2008
In 2007, the financial crisis destroyed America’s retirement fantasy. Jobs evaporated or were downsized. The stock market took a nosedive. Millions of Americans who had worked hard, straining to sock away a portion of their salary for 401(k)s, watched helplessly as a black cloud formed over their golden years. In October 2008, the Congressional Budget Office revealed that Americans had lost $2 trillion in just 15 months - money that will likely never be recovered. Not long after, President Obama betrayed the public by turning away from the jobs crisis to create a deficit commission whose leaders had the stunning lack of foresight to advise cutting Social Security at a time when the retirement train wreck was quickly picking up steam.

Economic recovery is now treated as consistent with declining standards of living. Lowered expectations and acquiescence in long term working-class hardship are now built into what we are told to regard as recovery.
- Still Trapped In Unemployment, 2013
Looking at the situation in which a proxy is being waged on Russia from Ukraine, nothing seems to add up. The same is true for the genocide now going on in Gaza. And when we superimpose problems like curing cancer and other diseases, environmental problems, and failing economies, the only thing we can see is that our leaders have failed miserably at prioritising. It’s also obvious that we, the people, are the farthest thing from their minds.
There are over 33,000 homeless veterans who fought these wars for the United States. The billions in military support only for Saudi Arabia would be enough to gift each one of those vets $1.7 million. You do the math. What is being spent to kill millions of us, could save the millions being killed plus millions of others starving, wasting away, or swept away by disasters.

Generation Z Is Furious About What Has Happened To The Economy
And They Are Blaming Previous Generations For Wrecking It

By Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog
May 12, 2024

No matter how hard they work, millions of Gen Z Americans are just barely scraping by month after month, and many of them are seriously pissed off about it.  In fact, videos of Gen Z Americans ranting about the economy on TikTok have been racking up millions of views.  Many of those that are ranting about the economy absolutely hate the fact that no matter how much they try they can never seem to get ahead.  Others just keep getting deeper and deeper in debt because they can never seem to make enough money to pay all the bills.  And do you know who they are blaming for the pain that they are experiencing?  They are blaming those that belong to previous generations for wrecking the economy, and they are right.  We were handed the keys to the greatest economic machine in the history of the world, and for decades our leaders have been systematically destroying it.  The bright future that future generations of Americans were supposed to have has been wiped out, and Gen Z Americans are starting to REALIZE that EVEN MORE PAIN AND SUFFERING ARE AHEAD.

If I was a member of Gen Z, I would feel the exact same way.

The economy has been ruined, and it is people my age and older that did it.

We should be absolutely ashamed of ourselves, but we’re not.

For many years I have been warning that someday young people would be absolutely furious because of what we have done to their future, and now that is precisely what is happening.

One Gen Z TikTok user named Nicholas Summers recently made headlines all over the nation when he ranted about the fact that he is struggling to survive each month even though he makes THREE TIMES THE FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE:

But when NICHOLAS SUMNERS took to TIKTOK to rant about the difficulty of surviving in America, millions of people tuned in to agree. He claims that he makes three times the MINIMUM WAGE, which would mean hes making at least $21.75 per hour and is still struggling to survive.

This isn’t surprising, considering the RISING INGFLATION and WEALTH GAP between America’s richest and poorest. Some see America as the greatest country in the world, but many citizens live like its a third-world country. And now, the masses are angry and ready for a revolution, as evidenced in Nic’s rant, which he concludes by saying, “The American dream is dead.”

A lot of my readers can identify with what he is going through.

It can be absolutely soul crushing when there simply is not enough money month after month even though you are working as hard as you can.

In his video, he asked if someone can explain to him IN CRAYON-EATING TERMS why even the basics have become so difficult to afford:

With hot inflation numbers to prove it, one hacked-off Gen Z American took to TikTok, where he detailed a “struggle to survive” and pay for everyday items.

“Can somebody explain to me in crayon-eating terms why I make over three times the federal minimum wage and I cannot afford to live?” the user allegedly named Nic started to say.

“And I do not want to hear the ‘Pull yourself up from your bootstraps, work 90 hours a week.’ That’s not the goal, guys,” he continued ranting. “A one-bedroom apartment, $1,800. Two-bedroom apartment, $2,200. Who the f*** can afford that? It is embarrassing to come out and say that it is a struggle to survive right now. But I know so many people are struggling.”

I can certainly understand his frustration.

I have been writing about these things for years, but our leaders never listen.

Conditions have been deteriorating for a very long time, and in a subsequent video Nicholas observed that this has been happening NO MATTER WHO HAS BEEN IN CONTROL IN WASHINGTON.

I just now realized that regardless of which side I vote, it wonӒt be fixed, Nic said. ԓThey continue to pull this bulls. The spending budgets that they keep approving, the foreign aid they keep sending out when we need that in America.ה

“How many homeless veterans are out on the street right now?” he added in the recent post. “Government overreaching, government overspending has continued to happen and it is getting worse and worse.”

Our leaders are just going to keep doing what they are doing until the entire system completely and utterly collapses.

Another rant about the economy that has already been viewed more than 6 million times was posted on TikTok BY A GEN-Z WOMAN NAMED CHAILYN:

In her candid VIDEO, Chailyn, a Walmart employee, stated, “I cannot stand how the news has been dogging Gen Z and calling them lazy for not wanting to work 9-5 for the rest of their lives… I work five days out of the week, 40 hours a week. I [still] do not make enough to live on my own.”

She then highlighted the stark financial disparities that exist between her generation and previous ones.

“Twenty years ago, when you were getting started [with your career], you could live on your own. Twenty years ago when you first started, you were able to do everything that I am now struggling to do,” she said.

And she is very clear about who she thinks is responsible for creating the giant economic mess THAT WE ARE NOW FACING:

“You can sit here and call Gen Z lazy all you want, but I have been working my tail-end off just to barely make it by, and respectfully, I don’t want to do that for the rest of my life,” she said. “I don’t want to work my tail-end off, wasting all of my life working, just to barely be able to pay my bills.”

Chailyn concluded her message with a pointed argument, shifting the blame to previous generations for the current state of the economy and the burden it places on Gen Z.

“You tell me how it got ruined. We can sit here and we can call Gen Z lazy all you want. But you let the economy turn into what it did.”

She added, “You let it all run to hell, and now it’s Gen Z’s ‘fault’ because we don’t want to work to fix your mistakes.”


She doesn’t want to work for the rest of her life to pay off the 34 trillion dollars that has been ruthlessly stolen from her generation and future generations of Americans.

And I don’t blame her one bit.

If we lived in a just society, those responsible for getting us 34 trillion dollars in debt would be in prison.

But instead we treat them like heroes.

Shame on us.

Because the cost of living is so ridiculously high, most young adults cannot make it on their own in this economy.

As a result, vast numbers of them ARE LIVING IN POVERTY, and debt levels among our young adults have risen TO VERY ALARMING LEVELS:

Then there’s Gen Z, which has higher debt levels and delinquency rates for a number of credit products - from credit cards to mortgages and student loans - than Millennials did at the same age a decade ago. “The Gen Z frustration is real,” writes Jonathan Levin for Bloomberg Opinion. “If you have a job, a house and some stocks, you’re probably doing just fine. But America’s two-track economy is leaving many behind, particularly young adults.”

In recent years, the Federal Reserve flooded the system with TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS, and the “experts” assured us that there wouldn’t be any serious consequences.

They were dead wrong.

And our politicians have been adding about a trillion dollars to the national debt every 100 days, and the “experts” assured us that everything would work out just fine somehow.

They were dead wrong about that too.

Our leaders are destroying our currency, they are destroying our economy, and they are destroying our future.

And if you think that things are bad now, just wait until you see what THE NEXT FEW YEARS bring.

We are on a highway to economic oblivion, and when Gen Z blames the generations that came before them they are right on target.
