The anticipation
By Steve A. Stone

Dear Friends and Patriots,

I don’t know about you, but anticipation for the future is having a truly dramatic effect on my being. To say it’s disturbing me would be mild in the extreme. Some, or maybe all of my friends believe I’ve gone around the bend. They point to the car I bought in May, a 1984 Chrysler Crossfire, and comment that I’m having a late mid-life crisis. More recently they look at my bike, a 1985 Harley Davidson Sportster, and think I have a latent death wish. Most of them know about the 1928 Model A hot rod I paid for in February, but still haven’t quite taken delivery on, and they think that’s just silly. But, I have plans!

The Crossfire is small. It’s nimble. It’s quick. And, it’s very, very reliable. The running gear is all Mercedes. Mine has 38K miles on it, even though it’s over 17 years old. If I need to go somewhere really fast, but also want something that’s not too big to hide easily, the Crossfire is my answer. Besides, it’s a really fun car to drive.

The Sportster is built for night ops. It’s not intended to be an open-road tourer. I mean … look at it. It’s purpose-built for what I might want to use it for, which is to get where I want to be quickly and unobtrusively, do what I need to do, then get out without being noticed.

The Model A has a purpose, too. It’s EMP-proof. I don’t understand anyone not having a vehicle that will run regardless of any EM interference. If a “hostile actor” wishes to disable most of America it would be easy – just fry the electronics. OBTW – that capability is inherent in 5G technology. I just thought you might want to know that. But, my Model A is 1960s technology. It will run, come what may.

I began to get really stirred up late last year – before the elections. I could see “the steal” coming a mile away. Trump was right on the money on that one. I saw it all, too. I knew what was coming – a regime change that was intended to demolish all that we think of as America. I shifted into survival mode and began to think of all the things I’d need if things got really, really bad. I’m talking Zombie Apocalypse bad. Then, I made lists of things I’d need and considerations to make. I armed and ammo’d up. I bought survival food, just in case. I bought a light trailer that I can tow with any of my vehicles. Then I verified that an old offer of a safe haven 9 hours away was still good (it is). After that, it was just thinking through the different scenarios that might occur and how I’d need to be situated to react and respond.

What’s surprised me this year is the resilience of our nation. Even though a case could be made that our economy is teetering on the edge of oblivion, things seem awfully peaceful. Even though the entire COVID saga is so obviously an historic scam, people aren’t all that excited. Even though the Biden administration intrudes a little more into the residual of our personal freedoms each and every day, it would appear most aren’t actually aware of it. Even though every major institution in America seems to be in the tank with the coming New World Order, there’s no obvious nervousness about it. The majority of Americans think they can do what they’ve done for the past 100 years – ignore all that’s going on and wait until it just goes away.

For 100 years, and perhaps more, America has withstood one test after another. It would seem we’re invulnerable. But, what everyone missed all along the way were the things going on behind the scenes. They missed that every major crisis that presented itself appeared to melt away or to be mitigated to the point the citizens believed the problems had been fixed. Meanwhile America has had a nest of termites gnawing at its soul; termites unseen, unfelt, yet ever more destructive. As with anything termites invade, if they aren’t detected and killed off early the damage they do can only be fixed by replacing major parts of a structure. If no one is looking for them and the damage isn’t systematically fixed, one day the entire structure may just collapse. All the strength in the systems needed to keep it intact will have been eaten away. That is where America is at. Our national structure is termite-ridden and in danger of immediate collapse.

When I survey our nation’s institutions and major structural aspects I’m appalled. It’s all rotten. Here’s a brief list to illustrate:

    Congress – filled with socialists and politicians who act more out of self- interest than concern for the nation’s well-being. A den of thieves.

    The Federal Judiciary – as politicized and unreliable as any judiciary on the planet. We used to believe judicial rulings had to be in accordance with requirements in our Constitution. We haven’t seen much of that in decades.

    Colleges and Universities – most, except for a very few private institutions, are so filled with progressive, socialist, and communist professors and administrators that it’s tantamount to a crime to send young people to any of them. If the intent is to get one’s children fully indoctrinated in modern socialist thought, then you can do that. If you want them truly educated and to be assured they’ll be an asset to the nation’s future – perhaps you need to think again.

    The Media – is there any reason to elaborate? I think not. If your mind isn’t made up by now regarding the media, YOU are part of the problem.

    The US Military – all branches. They’ve all become infected with progressivism and their top leaders all seem proud of how “woke” they are. They can no longer be trusted to be our guardians. They’re being conditioned to be our jailers. Believe that and nothing you see or hear regarding our military can surprise you.

    Unions – they were in the tank on progressivism and socialism from the very start. They’ve had moments when it seemed they might have escaped, but it’s safe to consider them all on the wrong side of the freedom equation. They can’t help us; they can only cause harm.

    Major Corporations – remember when corporations had a national identity? General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler were solidly American. All our domestic beers were, too. We had the world’s largest steel producers. American electrical and electronic manufacturers were giants in their industries. Now, we still see most of the same names, but none of those corporations identify as “American” anymore. Most of them now claim to be bigger and more powerful than any national government. Want to know who you should fear when you think of the future? Start with major international corporations. The plans for the planet’s future – yes, those are their plans.

    Our Power Grids – we have three. The Eastern and Western grids are huge, encompassing 80% of the continent’s territory. The other 20% is the Texas grid. I’m led to believe the Texas grid has been EMP hardened. To what extent isn’t something one can find out – it’s a security thing, you know? The Eastern and Western grids – still as un-hardened as ever. Thirty years ago a study group determined the entire nation’s electrical grid could be hardened for a total of $2B. That number was re-visited ten years ago and found to be essentially the same. Yet, nothing has been done. The utilities seem content to wait for the federal government to hand them the money. Congress is aware of the potential for danger, yet has not taken the first step to act. Do you find that curious? I do. We’ve heard talk for the past few years of a potential North Korean EMP strike against America. That should sound like a bunch of bologna, but it doesn’t, and isn’t. America is incredibly vulnerable. Loss of the grids is the single quickest way to find ourselves in one or another of the Zombie Apocalypse scenarios. Our government knows it. FEMA and Homeland Security have war-gamed those scenarios many times.

    The US Intelligence Community – in recent times we learned there are 17 agencies that are considered members of the US intel community. They even count the US Coast Guard Investigative Service as a member. I don’t know about you, but my trust in any of those agencies is nil. If you just want to consider the records of support for individual liberty, the records of the bigger agencies – CIA, DIA, FBI, and NSA – are abysmal. I am almost to the point of stating America is reminiscent of the old Soviet state when it comes to intelligence agency abuses of citizens’ rights. There’s only one way to ensure you’re safe from any of them – make sure they don’t know your name. Once you’re on their radar it’s impossible to get off. Their files are permanent. One question I can’t answer – how many of the 17 are “players” in the “surveillance state” operations against the people of our country? My current thought is 13 are. The other 4 are, also – when requested.

    Big Pharma – the major drug manufacturers in the country have doctors and the government in their pockets. They supply doctors with free meds occasionally. Is there a price? Nothing in life is free. Only the doctors can tell you the prices they pay. The government is in something of a symbiotic relationship with Big Pharma. The regulatory bureaucracy is strangely lenient sometimes. The members in Congress often word bills dealing with drugs in odd ways that somehow favor Big Pharma at times. There are many scandals there that should be investigated and reported on, but strangely – they rarely are

All of the organizations and structures pointed to above are part and parcel of “the game” being played with the American public, as are many more. They are all in league against us, to one degree or another. Not totally. Not all the time. But, enough of the time to where there should be zero trust for any of them. Everything above is factored into The Green New Deal, which is almost guaranteed to come to realization this year.

The monthly jobs report came out yesterday. Did you catch that? 192,000 jobs were “created” last month. The administration’s expectations were advertised as somewhere near 500,000. The administration’s response was “disappointment.” Let me ask you, how can they be disappointed? What did the administration do to encourage people to work? There are just a bit less than 11 million jobs open in this country, yet people won’t work. Or is it because many are just disillusioned? If they apply for a job that requires vaccination – and they aren’t – there’s a quandary. The administration encourages all companies to implement vaccine mandates. They promise to enforce mandates on any company that employs greater than 100 people. Most of the lower-paying jobs are at companies employing less than 100 people. The government essentially paid people to stay home during the so-called pandemic and ensured they’d still bring in the equivalent of $15/hour. Now, with the mandates we’re already seeing people quit their jobs, retire, or planning to force their employers to fire them. In most cases anyone who gets fired for not taking a COVID vaccine will not qualify for unemployment. Is it just me, or is there some confusion in all the messaging. What DO they want? I know. So do you.

My Congressman was in the house on Monday night. I’ve never heard him refer to The New World Order and almost never heard him speak of The Green New Deal. I need to have a heart-to-heart talk with him sometime to find out if all that’s because he really doesn’t know or because he doesn’t have enough authoritative proof to unequivocally state there’s a grand conspiracy to destroy our nation. To me, it’s not theory, but fact. To him … who knows? When he was speaking about the upcoming $3.5T budget bill, that even he says is more like $5-5.5T, he did reveal one thing. One of the most likely scenarios going forward is a “baby-split,” where both sides agree to just cut the bill in half money and time-wise, but to leave all the various “wanna haves” in it. My Congressman knows the bill is larded with every single Green New Deal initiative there is. The fact that he’d bring up a baby-split instead of ranting about how passage of such a monstrosity at any Dollar cost would bring about that fundamental change in America that Barack Obama used to talk about is telling, but I’m not sure exactly what it tells me. My inclination, skeptic that I am, is not to trust – anyone.

I speak often about the “connectedness” of everything going on today. It’s true. Once Agenda 21 was created it was relatively easy to make plans for each of its sections to move forward to its desired conclusion. Agenda 2030 just updated and refined that plan. When you examine Agendas 2030 it should be apparent that every single human endeavor is captured within them. That’s why it’s so powerful when used as a master planning document. Each element of the Agenda can be decomposed to the point where concrete mini and micro goals are established to accomplish by an agreed-upon schedule. The entire Agenda is decomposed into a giant network of interlocking activities and actions, all centered on one goal – to build every component part necessary to facilitate a complete realignment of all aspects of life on Earth. That’s what The Green New Deal is a part of. That’s what the giant omnibus budget bill will facilitate.

But, perhaps I’m wrong.

Meanwhile, my car, motorcycle, Model A, and survival gear are my immediate responses to all that’s happening. I need to believe I have a chance in the future. I know I won’t have one if I just … comply. I know I won’t have one if I trust the untrustworthy. I know I won’t have one if I just sit and wait. You won’t, either.

As I’ve said many times in the past – NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOUR CHOOSING.

In Liberty,
