Last week the White House published the “Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets” that will pave the way to a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) while regulating, and possibly eliminating, all competing cryptocurrencies.
This is the end game for the Great Reset, which started with the COVID Plandemic in 2020, and is being further advanced today with the war in Ukraine.
The Globalists who run the world’s financial systems are mostly bankers, and they know that “payday” is almost here now, while the masses are mostly clueless and just assume that the world’s economy, particularly in the West, will just continue on forever running up debt and creating fiat cash out of thin air, not realizing that at some point people need to stop consuming and start producing something.
The end goal for the Globalists here is the complete replacement of fiat currencies and hard cash with digital money that is controlled by the Central Banks.
Just how far they are able to advance to reach this end goal is dependent upon YOU, the consumer, and how willing you are to resist, and to change your way of living to start moving into the segment of the population that produces goods and services, rather than depend upon “the system” to take care of you and provide everything for you.
Because once that “system” eliminates cash and local currencies in favor of CBDCs, then your slavery to that system will be complete, and there will be NOTHING you can do without their permission.
Much of the Biden EO on digital currencies give 6 months to plan most of how this will be implemented, but don’t be fooled into thinking you still have a lot of time to prepare for this, because China is already far ahead of the U.S. in moving to a financial system based on CBDCs, and the U.S. is playing catch up at this point. The days of the U.S. dollar being the world’s #1 currency are almost over now. See:
The current financial system is hanging on by a thread, and that thread can snap at any point, any day now. Massive food shortages await Americans, and have already begun in poorer countries around the world, which will cause massive social unrest.
At any point an attack on our infrastructure, such as power grids and the Internet, or a military strike on our military bases such as a nuclear attack, could crash the financial system and leave people almost completely helpless if they are not prepared to live outside of “the system.”
And if you are one of the believers in cryptocurrencies and believe that you have found a safe haven there, you are in for a rude awakening. Just ask the 25,000 Russians who were locked out of their digital wallets last week.
I had a few comments from cryptocurrency believers email me after I published that article, telling me I was wrong, stating, among other things, that digital wallets do not have to be stored at the digital currency exchanges, as if that really mattered.
Even if you have all of your digital currencies stored on a local computer that is not connected to the Internet, what good is that going to do you if the power grid and Internet go down? Even if you have backup power to run your computer or device where your digital wallet is, what do you plan to do with that “digital currency” when you cannot access the Internet?
Bitcoin, the largest of current cryptocurrencies, is probably on the way out due to its “energy-intensive computing process known as proof-of-work.”
The Biden EO just published has plenty to say about “climate change,” and there can be no doubt that they are targeting Bitcoin and its power hungry methods for “mining.”
We must take strong steps to reduce the risks that digital assets could pose to consumers, investors, and business protections; financial stability and financial system integrity; combating and preventing crime and illicit finance; national security; the ability to exercise human rights; financial inclusion and equity; and climate change and pollution.
If we have learned anything from the past two years during COVID, it is that the U.S. Government has ZERO interest in protecting us from anything, but instead is suspending all rule of law through emergency orders with the goal of controlling every aspect of our lives.
The current cryptocurrencies are a threat to the U.S. Government and the Bankers who control the world’s financial system, and not a threat to “consumers, investors, and businesses” that need to be “protected” by the U.S. Government.
What Can you Do to Prepare for the Move to CBDCs?
The implementation of CBDCs and the replacement of cash is a train that has left the station, and it is not coming back.
China is already in the implementation stage, as CNN Business reports:
China, the world’s second-largest economy by gross domestic product, soft-launched its digital renminbi in January and the CBDC already boasts more than a hundred million users. All told, around 100 countries are exploring CBDCs at one level or another, International Monetary Fund managing director Kristalina Georgieva said during remarks at the Atlantic Council think tank last month.
“We have moved beyond conceptual discussions of CBDCs and we are now in the phase of experimentation,” Georgieva said. “Central banks are rolling up their sleeves and familiarizing themselves with the bits and bytes of digital money.”
David Yermack, the finance department chair at New York University’s Stern School of Business, told CNN Business that it is now “inevitable the entire world will be issuing money in this way.”
In the United States, the pandemic propelled demand for cashless payment methods and many Main Street investors have embraced cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ethereum, putting pressure on the government not to fall behind on the trend. (Source.)
If the implementation of CBDCs in the U.S. follows the same path as China, there will be a transition period where it will be voluntary at first. I am sure there will be financial incentives to lure people into the system, like luring an animal into a baited trap.
Do not volunteer! The fewer the people who volunteer to setup the system, the more difficult it will be to develop and implement it.
Secondly, use cash instead of credit cards right now as much as possible. Every time you make a charge on your credit card when you are out in public, you are leaving a digital footprint to track and analyze you.
Start practicing now on how to use the system as little as possible, while it is still voluntary.
Have some cash on hand in case the grid goes down and you cannot use an ATM or go to your bank to make withdrawals.
It is very likely that a “black market” will develop as a parallel economy if enough people resist, and cash may still hold some value for a while even after the switch over to CBDCs is completed.
However, like the “mark of the beast” mentioned in the Bible, the day is coming, probably sooner rather than later, where to participate in the “system” you will be forced to use their CBDCs.
It is going to take not only consumers resisting the roll-out of CBDCs, but also business owners, who will have no choice but to start participating in a parallel economy if they don’t want to be part of the “system.”
And it won’t be easy. That’s why it ultimately all comes down to the consumer, and just how much they resist, or comply, to the Globalists’ system.
Private membership clubs will need to be formed at the local community level to support these businesses, in order to bypass the “system.”
But to participate in a parallel economy like this, you have to be able to produce something that has value to others, or you won’t survive.
Some of that “production” will be service production, and people who have skills to “fix” things will be in high demand, and able to easily trade their services for hard assets, like food.
Others who are “healers” and know how to deal with illness apart from the medical system and their toxic poisonous products will also be in high demand.
If you are a homeschool parent, the best skills you can be teaching your children right now are how to provide these high-value services that will be needed in the future to serve those who choose to not be part of the “system.” If you want to teach them a second language, strongly consider Simplified Chinese, as there is little doubt that China is poised to take over as the world’s largest economy in the future.
As a business owner of an ecommerce company for the past 20 years, let me tell you what we have been planning since the roll-out of COVID.
We fully realize that our days of being able to sell our products over the Internet are probably numbered at this point. Once Digital IDs are rolled out and CBDCs implemented, we will probably not be able to continue selling over the Internet without complying to the “system.”
So for the past two years we have been actively recruiting local distributors where we can spread our inventory out across the country and have our products available in local communities, and not just at a central warehouse.
We are investing heavily in long-term storage products, like whole grains, honey, sugar, green coffee beans, and coconut oil, which all have an indefinite shelf life.
We currently have a 2-3 year supply of grains, and are actively trying to buy more. And these are not just any grains, but grains that meet our standards and are not contaminated with glyphosate and other herbicides and pesticides, focusing on ancient and heirloom varieties, so that these grains can also be planted and grown, if necessary. Our corn is an heirloom variety from Central Mexico where GMOs are banned.
I have seen this coming (the elimination of cash and the roll out of CBDCs) since COVID started, and changed our business management to focus on purchasing and storing food that has a long shelf life, as opposed to keeping a cash reserve in the bank.
And you would do well to start planning the same way. Be prepared for the day, which may not be too far off in the future, where your U.S. dollars sitting in a bank account will become almost worthless. Watch what is happening right now in Russia and Ukraine to their financial systems, and understand that the very same thing can happen here in the U.S.
If you run a small business that serves your community, start doubling and tripling your supplies while you still can, rather than leaving your money in the bank where it can quickly disappear.
Start networking with the producers in your community. If they are in the agricultural industry supplying the commodity food chain, chances are pretty good that they would gladly start selling to consumers in their community instead, if there are enough people willing to stop purchasing from national corporate chains, and buy local instead.
In the meantime, start making some changes in your life to get prepared for what is ahead. Spring is coming, and this is a good time to store some heirloom seeds and begin growing some of your own food and herbs. Start investing in things that will allow you to become more of a producer than a consumer. Start moving your cash into hard assets, which does NOT include cryptocurrencies.
Stock up on food, ammo, lumber, and other supplies that will probably become in high demand when the economy crashes, especially supplies for any business or trade you are a part of.
Start learning new skills that you can leverage in an alternative economy. Learn how to butcher animals, for example. We saw in 2020 how farmers were stuck with animals they could not butcher because of not being able to book processing time at their local meat processor, and you can be sure that is probably going to happen again.
If you don’t want to be a slave to the tyrants once they switch over to a cashless society with only CBDCs, then you are going to have to earn your freedom, because no one is going to just give it you.
If you are not prepared, then the day may soon come where your only option, if you want to have food to survive and have a place to sleep, will be something like a government-run FEMA camp. And even then, you most assuredly will need to be fully vaccinated to be able to enter.
Yes, that is the worst case scenario, but do you really want to take a chance that this would never happen?
