In today’s column, I want to point out several noteworthy news items. As I wrote last week, America and Western Europe are in a steep freefall that mirrors the collapse of the old Roman Empire. And the pace of that descent is increasing exponentially every day.
The following items help to illustrate the utter disregard for Life and Liberty displayed by Big Government lackeys and their super-rich (and super-evil) handlers that are facilitating America’s decline and fall.
Public Enemy Number One: Bill Gates
Bill Gates continues to earn his reputation as the most evil man on planet earth. This diabolical mass murderer never seems to run out of ideas on how to inflict the most damage possible on innocent people while enriching himself at the same time. Gates is truly a genius—an EVIL genius.
Livestock industry leaders have urged Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthrophist [sic] Bill Gates to undertake more research into livestock production after he called for policies requiring people in rich countries to eat “100 percent synthetic beef”.
Mr. Gates, who has invested in range [sic] of ‘synthetic meat’ startups including Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat, Memphis Meats and Hampton Creek Foods, made the comments in an interview promoting his new book ‘How to Avoid a Climate Disaster’.
“I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef,” he said.
“You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time.
“Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”
Mr. Gates said in the MIT interview he wasn’t sure if ‘lab grown’ meat like Memphis Meats will ever be economical.
In his new book Mr. Gates says using regulation to force a shift to synthetic meat is only one of a wide range of government policies that will ultimately be needed to avoid a climate disaster. (Source)
Now you know why Gates is buying up so much farm land.
The Real War on Climate Change is War on Freedom
Tyler Durden quotes Barbara Baarsma. Barbara is the CEO of Rabo Carbon Bank.
“Let’s ensure that every household or every citizen of the Netherlands receives a certain amount of carbon emission rights. This way we can ensure that we do not emit more than our yearly limit. Your emission rights will be stored in a carbon wallet. So if I wanted to fly, I would buy some carbon emission rights from someone who can’t afford to fly. For example this way this poor person can earn some extra money.
Or if someone lives in a small house, he can sell his emission rights to someone who lives in a big house, this way poor people can benefit from the green economy.”
Wow. Quite something, isn’t it. Let’s pick it apart and then look at how they are probably going to implement it.
You could argue that it’s just another level of taxation which the globalists will take. I think it runs far deeper. When Bankers start using expressions like rights, poor people and green economy you can be sure that they are envisaging a world for the elite. They don’t give a fig about anyone else.
So in its most basic form, you'll have no fun and won’t be allowed to travel anywhere. But don’t worry the elites will have the fun for you.
This is nothing more than Totalitarianism.
Did I forget to mention that Rabobank and Baarsma are both in the World Economic Forum.
When most people think of carbon emissions and carbon footprints they think it only refers to travel, fuel, gas and electricity all under the guise of emissions. I hate to break it to you but it runs far deeper than that.
Let me now introduce you to Doc Ono, a company you may never have heard of.
Doconomy is a “credit card” endorsed by Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.
In May 2019 an article appeared on the WEF site called
“This credit card has a carbon-emission spending limit”
In the article it says
“Swedish fintech company Doconomy has launched a new credit card that monitors the carbon footprint of its customers - and cuts off their spending when they hit their carbon max.”
Yikes, cuts off their spending.
“The DO card tracks the CO2 emissions linked to purchases to calculate the carbon impact of every transaction. The aim is to encourage people to actively reduce their carbon footprint and demonstrate the impact that small changes can have on the environment.
The card uses the Aland Index as the basis on which it calculates the carbon footprint of each product purchased. Users can set a maximum value for their carbon spend and learn how to compensate for their carbon footprint by contributing towards schemes to reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions.”
Now we are getting closer to the truth of how this is going to operate. It isn’t just travel, it will be for everything.
Biden Creating IRS Brown Shirts
A former IRS whistleblower sets the record straight about the doubling of the size of the Internal Revenue Service.
William Henck, a former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) lawyer who was forced out after making allegations of internal malfeasance, said the government will target middle-income Americans with new audits under the Inflation Reduction Act.
Henck added that he thought it was "insane" to double the agency's budget. He said the IRS will target businesses who don't have enough money to hire Washington lobbyists.
Americans with an annual income of less than $75,000 would be subject to nearly 711,000 new IRS audits under the legislation, according to a House GOP analysis that used historic audit rates. By comparison, individuals making more than $500,000 will receive about 95,000 additional audits as a result of the Inflation Reduction Act.
Matt Agorist adds:
In response to the record inflation facing Americans currently — thanks to massive and irresponsible printing of money by the Federal Reserve — the US government has come up with a "plan." This new plan involves doubling down on the same irresponsible fiscal behavior which brought us to this nightmare scenario in the first place, which is hundreds of billions in new spending.
This time, however, there will be a literal army of enforcers to take your money to pay back some of this interest to the Fed.
The Schumer-Manchin tax bill known as the Inflation Reduction Act, which passed the Senate on Sunday, raises taxes and allocates a whopping $80 billion to the Internal Revenue Service so they can increase enforcement. Just how big is "whopping"? The proposed increase is more than six times the current annual budget of the IRS which sits at $12.6 billion.
With this insane increase in spending, the IRS will be doubling their total workforce by hiring an additional 80,000 to 87,000 additional employees who will be trained to separate you from the product of your labor.
The plan is being lauded by Democrats who claim that this $80 billion and 87,000 more agents are necessary and will be used to "crack down on wealthy tax evaders." But this is simply not true.
According to an analysis from Credit Suisse, there are roughly 788 billionaires in the United States and roughly 89,510 people worth more than $50 million. If the establishment was truly concerned about going after the "wealthy," they would only have about 90,000 folks to monitor. And, if they doubled their ranks, it would mean nearly two IRS agents per extremely wealthy individual.
In reality, this new army of wage thieves will be enforcing a system of slavery on the 99 percent of Americans below the "wealthy" range.
Sadly, this bill is receiving support in Washington and widespread praise in corporate media. This is in spite of the fact that it will do nothing to reduce inflation and had loopholes built in for the super rich before it even went to the Senate floor.
Plus, the IRS will use part of its new found wealth to open a Sniper School for agents. You can bet your last dollar that the 1% will not be in those crosshairs. In addition, part of the IRS-published job descriptions is that applicants "Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary" and "Be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments."

Remember how Rome would send its military troops to take taxes from the peasants at the force of arms with death being the penalty for non-compliance? It appears that Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats in Congress want to bring that day to America.
The Police State in Ohio Shuts Down a “Criminal” Lemonade Stand
Asa Baker is an 8-year-old girl from Ohio with an overwhelming entrepreneurial spirit. Over the hot summer, rather than spend the days inside watching TV, Asa would set up a lemonade stand in her front yard to make some cash.
“It’s fun and you get lots of people,” Asa told FOX 8 news in an interview, adding that lots of truckers stop by and pay more than the $1 per cup that she charges.
“Especially on a country road, I get a lot of people,” she said.
Unfortunately for Asa, however, her summer of entrepreneurial spirit would come to a grinding halt when police shut down her stand for the crime of selling lemonade without a permit.
Earlier this month, Asa had her first experience with the state's iron fist when she set up her stand at her father's business downtown. Everything was cleared with the property owner and she had permission to be there during the town's annual Rib and Food Festival.
Asa was in an alleyway about a half block from the festival and business was good — until police showed up.
Asa says when she saw a police officer walking up to her stand she thought he was going to buy a cup of lemonade. But that was not his mission. Instead of encouraging the little girl's business acumen in the lemonade realm, he was there to shut her down.
“We looked it up and it was pretty much anywhere in Ohio. You have to have a license and I’ve never heard of that,” said Kyle Clark, Asa’s Dad.
FOX 8 reached out to the city who stated that the police department is obligated to enforce the city's ordinances — apparently, even if it means quashing an 8-year-old girl's spirit.
The good news is that Asa was unphased and a week later, she was back out on the street, selling lemonade. After the negative press on social media, this time, police said they were going to leave her alone — a win for civil disobedience. (Source)
I think John Whitehead’s quote of Harry Truman (one of my least favorite presidents, by the way) summarizes our current state of affairs very well:
Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.
The increasing tyrannical nature of our federal government has a lot of people talking about civil war. The truth is, our Founding Fathers fought a revolutionary war over infractions FAR LESS egregious than those the American people have been willing to tolerate for decades now.
But then again, I don’t see very many people today with the courage and character of our Founding Fathers. The only modern American in national politics that reaches to the sublime heights of Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry is Dr. Ron Paul—and he is now retired.
Plus, the glaring difference between Colonial America and modern America is the absence of Colonial America’s patriot pastors. Instead of the spiritual giants Jonas Clark, John Peter Muhlenburg, James Caldwell and John Witherspoon, we are stuck with the spiritual pygmies Robert Jeffress, John Hagee, Franklin Graham and Kenneth Copeland.
At this moment, our society is too comfortable, too complacent, too ignorant of history, too spiritually unfit, too self-absorbed, too pleasure-mad and too in love with dependency on government to even think about civil war.
However, if the so-called “Assault Weapons” ban passes the U.S. Senate and becomes law, the NEXT gun control law will be the mandatory confiscation of all semi-automatic rifles. If that should happen, all bets are off.
