    This is not completely correct. All or nearly all of the monetary expansion by the Fed is concomitant with lower interest rates (because the injection-point of new money into the economy is the commercial banks, which are credit institutions... free cash for them translates to lower interest rates on loans), so the economy is, in fact, stimulated in terms of increased production (new investments -> increased production). But the problem is that this increased investment is not based on a prior reduction in popular consumer spending or other expenditures for the purposes of building capital. Therefore, the "price signal" of interest rates becomes distorted. In a sound money economy, savers increase savings in response to higher interest rates, and vice-versa. The artificial lowering of interest rates punishes would-be savers so they are forced to either invest or consume. So the entire economy is driven into a situation of simultaneous over-investment and over-consumption and this is the cause of the business cycle, as so well explained by Austrian economists...

    Yes... we can pick many origin points, I don't mean to discredit that. My personal "awakening" began about 6 or so years after 9/11... "Any serious effort at transformation must occur within the larger framework of U.S. national security strategy, military missions and defense budgets. The United States cannot simply declare a “strategic pause” while experimenting with new technologies and operational concepts. Nor can it choose to pursue a transformation strategy that would decouple American and allied interests. A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger policy goals and would trouble American allies. Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."

    The Federal Reserve is a private entity created by an act of Congress, a bit like the USPS. As such, it is regulated separately from other kinds of private entities -- importantly, it is not subject to FISA, Congressional oversight or other public accountability mechanisms. This makes the Federal Reserve a legal black-hole in respect to public policy. Even the CIA has to report to Congress through the intelligence oversight committee. Nor does the Federal Reserve directly answer to executive authority under the US President, although the relationship is obviously inherently cooperative. The stated reason for this arrangement is "independence" from the government, I guess to prevent corruption or something, who knows. The real reason is to shield the Federal Reserve from the apparatus of national power which is why the Federal Reserve has never been a friend of US nationalism and has consistently supported economic policy that is consistent with the aims of the globalists. Indeed. And the insidiousness of the effects of inflation is not limited to ever-rising prices and economic collapses: The Non-Price Effects of Monetary Inflation

    The "elites" have been programming the American public through the government schools for generations, in preparation for their big takeover. So, it's not an either/or, it's both. Today's popular leftism is the culmination of generations of preparation. It is even documented, search "Geneticist's Manifesto" (hard to find via web search, I can provide a Google Drive link if requested) which was published in 1939. The problem with many people in the right is that they believe that leftism can spread on its own, as a self-sustaining concept. By its very nature, it cannot, it is a self-defeating political philosophy. Look at the Soviet Union... America did not end the Soviet Union, it collapsed under its own weight, it was an unsustainable monstrosity, a walking contradiction. These globalist social experiments are only able to survive for a time by parasitically feeding on the wealth and human capital of the country they took over during the revolution. It is literally a case of the parasite taking over the host and killing it. Such insane social philosophy is inherently self-defeating. It can only exist temporarily through parasitism. The Geneticist's Manifesto was published in 1939 -- that's 80 years ago. And really, the collectivist eugenicism (biological Marxism) put forward in that document dates way back into the 19th-century. This goes way back.

    VPN will not help you open .onion links in a regular browser. An end-user VPN is a tunnel to a web-proxy. This means the web traffic has to go an additional "hop" between your computer and the web-site you are connecting to. A VPN alone can't completely conceal your identity from the web-sites you connect to and certainly does not protect you from the authorities (you have to pay for the service, which makes you trackable). Tor has multiple exit-nodes and when you connect to the network each time, you will likely be assigned a different exit-node. This, combined with the "onion routing" protocol, helps conceal your IP address and other identifying information. Unlike a VPN, the authorities can't track you down by calling up the VPN operator and even the Tor exit node (whose IP address is, of course, visible) will not be able to help them because that node operator will not have access to your originating IP or any other information about you (your traffic is encrypted before it is sent so that the Tor nodes themselves cannot read it). Tor hidden services or .onion links are the Tor equivalent of websites. When you connect to a Tor hidden service, you are connecting to a persistent server that is hidden behind the layer of the Tor network -- you cannot directly connect to the IP address of the server (or discover it), you can only connect to the Tor network, and then ask the network to open a connection for you to that hidden service.

    This is simply not true. Sound economic theory -- that is, the Austrian school of economics -- has no problems with the complexity of the real world because it's not pretending to "model" the real-world, as the modern "quantitative economics" theories do. Rather, sound economic theory is a theory of human behavior, in particular, human action. Human action is human action, whether there is an abundance or famine. No, the solution is to allow the market to do what it does best -- economize. Two families can live in one home if they have to. Rooms can be sub-let. Garages/basements can be converted. Camping trailers can be used as a living space, at least for a while. People who were debating the idea of off-grid living can be pushed off the fence by a rise in housing prices. And so on, and so forth. When the crunch really is that bad, high prices compel those with low demand for housing to economize their use of it, freeing up housing for those with high demand for it; at the same time, high prices incentivize developers (who may have significant idle capacity) to build more housing. Project timelines can be moved up, project-management is not Moses with the ten commandments... everything is flexible/negotiable. Money moves, so when prices rise, things move faster. And high prices help change their minds...

    It works for everything -- high prices are the cure for high prices. The trouble is that it works for everything, even money itself. So when a market is flooded with cash, the price of cash itself (its purchasing power) must fall. Therefore, there will always be a secular rise in all prices in the presence of monetary expansion. This was even true during the gold/silver era, it's just that monetary expansion could never occur very quickly because mining is so costly. Gold/silver inflows-outflows also occurred as a result of the insane bimetallist policies that governments would institute. But even these were nothing compared to modern inflation which has devalued the dollar to a tiny fraction of its value in the course of just a century (there are people born before the Federal Reserve was established who are still alive today...)

    *sigh -- it's a Hollywood word devoid of any real meaning Every part of the Internet that you cannot reach by typing something in a web search and then clicking a link is "dark". If you can create a login or pay a subscription, then it might be classified as "gray" but not fully dark. The defining distinction is whether the cops can snoop in it. If they can't snoop in it, they classify it as "dark". Every corporate intranet is "dark". Every invitation-only forum or other social media is "dark". Every encrypted email is "dark". Every end-to-end encrypted chat or platform is "dark". And, of course, there's the Big Bad of darkness... Tor (insert Psycho-slash-scene-soundtrack-here...) Unless you know what you're doing, please do not log on to Tor. You're just inviting problems for no benefit. If you have a specific need to use that tool, however, it can be very powerful. Ironically, the single biggest userbase of Tor is... law enforcement! Dun-dun-dunnnnn. In fact, there are many reasons to believe Tor was created by intelligence agencies, or on their behalf. Even more hilarious is the fact that Tor can only work for law enforcement purposes if there is a large group of non-law-enforcement users on Tor. So all the hand-wringing about "the dark web" on these local news stations evening news segments is downright hilarious...

    ^ This And even if Blackrock isn't getting "free inflationary cash", no matter, they're just a drop in the literal ocean of cash spewing out of the money-fountain in DC. In fact, most of it ends up going into "defense" spending. This is why it is so important to keep the MIC fully employed at all times. The true purpose of the central bank is not for the government to buy things -- rather, its primary purpose is to light the distributed savings/capital of the general public on fire because distributed savings/capital makes Marxist takeover impossible. "Paper assets" like stocks, mutual funds, bonds, etc. don't count because those are already in the custody of the banking system and can be seized at the snap of the fingers. Marxist takeover is only possible when the vast majority of liquid wealth is in the hands of the central-planners (whether through outright revolution or, as in the case of the US, through a "boiling the frog" approach). The Agenda is the same as it was since Marx wrote Das Kapital. Nothing has changed.
