The Most Probable Crises You Need To Prepare For In 2021

The year 2020 has been declared by many to be “the worst year in history.” But that name has been given to other years before.

In 2018, a medieval scholar named Michael McCormick declared the year 536 AD as the worst in history. During that year, much of the world went dark, possibly due to a volcanic eruption. This caused a fall in the temperature, crops to fail and many to die.

But then there’s 1349, when the Black Death wiped out half of Europe. Other years had their own problems.

Whether history will decide that 2020 was worse than 536 or 1349 is something that none of us will see. Nevertheless, it could easily be the worst one in our lifetimes. But that too is yet to be seen. We don’t know what the future might hold.

There are many who are acting like they think the world will change at the stroke of midnight on December 31st, doing away with all the problems and replacing this bad year with a good one. I don’t see anything to tell me that things will suddenly get better, just like they didn’t in 537 or 1350.

If anything, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they actually got worse. I have nothing to back that up, just a gut feeling. But I can’t ignore it.

Having that gut feeling, I’ve looked around, searching out the most likely crisis situations to confront us in the coming year.

Another Surge of COVID-19

It’s only appropriate to start out with the pandemic that has defined 2020. For months, I’ve been hearing people make statements that sound like they believe that COVID will disappear on January 1st. Yet, medical experts are already warning us that we will need to keep all precautions in place until well into 2022. The idea that this disease will just disappear is unrealistic, to say the least.

But I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw another massive surge in people becoming infected with COVID-19 in the coming year. First of all, there will be a surge in January, caused by people getting together for Christmas. Whole families will come down with the disease, as it spreads through the family, having been brought to the party by one family member.

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021That’s not the surge I’m concerned about though. The one I’m seeing is the one that will come when everyone suddenly decides that we no longer need to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Whether that happens because officials decide that it’s safe to lift those restrictions or because of people just plain getting fed up with the restrictions on their lives, it’s going to come. When it does, we’ll see another massive surge.

We’ve already seen this happen in last summer’s surge. Once lockdown restrictions were lifted, many people took that to mean they could go back to life as normal, even though officials were warning against that. They didn’t listen and many got the disease.

Another Pandemic on the Heels of COVID

I can’t help, but feel that COVID-19 has been a dress rehearsal for something bigger that’s coming; a much worse pandemic, which is going to sweep the globe.

As with many pandemics, there’s a good chance that this one is going to come out of China, just like COVID-19 did and like so many other diseases have since the Black Plague.

There are those who are saying that COVID was actually an act of biological warfare on the Chinese government’s part. The jury is still out on that. But either way, the communist government definitely took advantage of it.

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021

Considering that the government lab it supposedly escaped from was studying viruses from bats, and that it is still studying a couple of other viruses from bats, it’s natural to wonder how many other such labs the Chinese have and how many viruses they are studying.

If, in fact, the Chinese government released the Coronavirus on the world intentionally, it’s perfectly reasonable to assume they’ve got something bigger waiting in the wings. It’s just a question of how soon it will take center stage.

Civil Unrest

The other big thing that 2020 was known for was civil unrest. Ever since George Floyd was killed in May, we’ve seen protests and riots breaking out across the country.

While peaceful protest is part of the American culture, a right guaranteed to us by the First Amendment, rioting is criminal activity. In many cases, it appears that the rioting was sparked by infiltrators into what started out to be peaceful protest.

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021Some might say that the riots were politically motivated and that the results of the elections could either cause an increase in the rioting or an end to it.

But that would assume that the rioting was politically motivated, with those rioting being against some government policy or other.

That just isn’t the case, while the riots have been hidden under the mantle of the Black Lives Matter protests, they were not actually started by those protesting police killings. Rather, it seems they were started by ANTIFA, which is after anarchy.

Remember CHOP or CHAZ? That was all about kicking out the local government. It was immaterial who was in authority; they just wanted to get rid of that authority. This is the same group which is affiliated with all the other rioting.

Gun and Ammunition Shortages

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021

As we go into the end of the year, we’re facing shortages of guns and ammo across the nation. This started out because of the rioting and has continued through today.

The ammo shortages in the stores are even worse than they were during Obama’s presidency and online prices for ammo have skyrocketed.

With the ongoing risk of civil unrest, there is no end to the surge in gun and ammunition sales in sight. We can not only expect them to continue, but possibly even increase, as people who might be a little bit behind in getting on board this particular train climb on.

Chances are, the shortages of ammo will continue considerably longer than the shortage of firearms, as people go to the range to practice using their new purchases.

If you aren’t already doing so, I’d recommend stockpiling whatever you can and considering loading your own ammo. Although, I will have to say that there’s a shortage of reloading supplies too.

Other Shortages

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021The panic associated with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rumors of coming lockdowns caused a massive amount of panic buying in the stores, leading to shortages. As time went on, those shortages increased, due to things like workers in meat packing plants coming down with the disease.

It took months for the stores to reach normal stocking levels again. But once there was talk about a second lockdown, the shortages started up again.

With another surge in COVID already happening, we’re looking at the possibility of another nationwide lockdown. That’s already happening in some states.

While the president doesn’t have the authority, constitutionally speaking, to make that happen, whoever is president can influence national opinion and put pressure on the governors of the several states to do so. But the threat of him doing such a thing will probably cause shortages once again.

Our Rights Under Attack

The government has been in all out war against our Constitutional rights for years, specifically the first, second and fourth amendments. One of the greatest dangers we face today, is that of either political party controlling both houses of Congress and the Presidency.

Were that to happen, they could turn a number of that party’s hobby horses into law, specifically, limiting our religious freedom, turning “free speech” into “hate speech” whenever it doesn’t agree with their agenda and limiting our rights to own firearms.

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021A large part of what makes America unique is the Bill of Rights. Many countries have copied our Constitution; but rarely do they copy our Bill of Rights… at least, not all of it.

But it is those 10 Amendments to the Constitution which give us liberty, not the Constitution itself.

Another part of this is the way that the modern version of political correctness puts the rights of some people above those of others.

Specifically, putting the rights of minority groups above what is mainstream in “flyover country.” Muslim rights trump Christian rights. Transgender rights trump women’s rights. And of course, the rights of any progressive trump those of any conservative.

Return of Political Correctness

Perhaps one of the biggest changes brought about by Donald Trump’s presidency was to destroy the idea of political correctness, even though that wasn’t part of his job. Not only was he politically incorrect, but he was unashamed about it, firing back at those who took shots at him. Some said that wasn’t presidential, but it was Trump.

Yet the media hasn’t slowed down any in their push for political correctness, along with their allies in Hollywood. That has given birth to the “cancel culture” of today, where people’s lives and careers are being ruined by something they did 20 or 30 years ago, even though it was acceptable back then.

Natural Disasters

2020 was a horrible year for hurricanes and other natural disasters.

The Most Likely Crises To Prepare For In 2021

While I don’t believe that those were caused by “global warming” by whatever name they are using today, I do see them as coming and going in cycles.

Based on that, it would be normal to expect 2021 to be a year of few natural disasters, because 2020 was so bad.

But I don’t believe that will happen. If anything, I expect 2021 to be a worse year for natural disasters than 2020 has been. It won’t be because of climate change, but rather because the world is trending in that direction.

Iran and North Korea Turning Militant

With Biden taking over from Trump in the White House, a number of things will happen on the world stage. For example, Biden has already declared that he will rejoin the Paris Climate Accords, which Trump pulled us out of. There’s also talk from his transition team about rejoining Obama’s agreement with Iran.

If we look back, both Iran and North Korea were doing a lot of saber rattling during past years. Why that happened is up for debate. But what’s not up for debate is that they both quieted down during the last four years. Bad actors like that, similar to the neighborhood gang, only understand strength. The only one who gets them to behave is one who convinced them that they could beat them with one hand tied behind their back.

But they’ve been quiet all too long, considering who they are. One of the things we typically see on the world stage is these sorts of countries testing our president, whoever they might be. Whether we end up with Biden or Trump in the White House, we can expect that once again. They might see Biden as an opportunity or might think that all the legal battles show that Trump’s position has been weakened.

Whichever it is, they’ll be looking for an opportunity that they can use to their advantage. The question will become, how effectively are we able to counter their actions.

Anything Else?

So there’s the list of things I’m looking for in this coming year. Did I miss anything? Is there something that you’re expecting this coming year, which I didn’t mention?

Is that something the rest of us should be preparing for too? Let us know.

      I think that you missed at least one. Joe Biden won’t be president for more than a few months. His own party will assasinate him so they can get Kamala Harris in power. But it doesn’t really matter what Democrat is in office because George Sorros is really president behind the scenes. He is the one who paid for all the violent protesters to go to all the cities to stir up all the trouble.

        Bill: You are correct about Commie Harris replacing Old Two-Shot, but you are wrong on the timing, I believe. The Succession (that is succession, not secession) Amendment provides that if the VP take over sooner than two years, that VP can only seek one additional term after finishing the 2+ years. HOWEVER, if the VP can wait just one more day after two years, then that VP can then seek TWO additional four-year terms after finishing the one year plus 364 day term as a result of replacing the Prez.

        While I realize that the distribution of thinking material in politicians is rather thinly distributed, even the dullest pol should be able to out it would be better to move after 2 years and a day than before.

        But, you may be right. The distribution of thinking matter may be even thinner than I suppose and the dems and Commie Harris might be just too impatient to assume the ermine robes and golden crown to wait two full ears and a day.

    During a crisis finding the back less travelled roads is essential (not the Interstates). Would consider charging a fee to Preppers for providing a specific route from a specific location to a destination provided to you by the Prepper? Many of us live in or near a city and timing to leave is paramount.

      Gee, Gary… charging people to give them what you believe to be “safe travel” routes seems kinda predatory, to my way of thinking. Besides which, if they are not safe and the situation is quickly resolved, if you charge for a service like that you’d better have a good lawyer on call. Charging opens you up for reprisals of all kinds, including lawsuits and criminal prosecution if it is found that you deliberately misled your customers. Just sayin.

      Study maps. Examine the routes. Drive the routes if you can. While you have good internet access, study all views on Google. Be mindful of traffic reports-what looked like a perfect route last month is now a tragic bottleneck thanks to some road project or bridge repair.

      My area has MANY bodies of water, as well as housing developments which are dead ends or only have 2-3 entrances. An unplanned and poorly-chosen detour can cost me 20 minutes easy, which is 20 minutes too much.

      Again, Google. You’d be surprised at what you can learn with Street View.

This whole mess could turn around over night, by dragging a 100 of the sell outs into the streets and hanging them for treason? That will never happen! We have gone to far over the edge, to ever come back. PC culture, and destroying the family unit, taking God out of everything, calling evil good, and good evil is the norm now!! Who would have thought a virus from china would have locked this country down, have us walking around wearing paper mask, that are worthless with viruses, fighting over toilet paper, in just a matter of weeks?

    This part of the article is untrue. Muslims and Christians have equal rights under our constitution, but christians are the ones who want to trump other religions in this country.
    The same for progressives and conservatives. Transgenders folks want the same rights as someone who is not. That’s not wanting to trump conservatives, that equal rights.

      Lisa: I really wonder why you follow this list. It’s okay to march to a different drummer. However if you are out of step you must expect that you will stumble over the man in front of you and get your heels stepped on by the man behind you. Folks who have been in the military service will instantly recognize that of which I write.

      It must be absolute torture for you to read the posts on this list. Of course, unlike on college campuses, where dissenting opinion is cause for expulsion, here you are free to express your views not matter how incorrect some of us feel they are. You may expect to be excoriated by some who also are exercising their right to free speech.

      For myself, I feel that you are living in some kind of dream world so detached from the realities of life that I wonder what is the cause of that detachment. I hope you find a cure for it before you find yourself standing in front of a wall with a line of your fellow travelers pointing their rifles at you. Why do I say that? Because it is the history of all attempts at socialism no matter what it was called.

          No shame in holding opposite opinions, however weakly based the opinion might seem to someone else. Reasonable minds can differ. That’s purportedly why we have courts before the political parties made them partisan. The reason for life terms was supposedly so that the judges wouldn’t have to cater to public opinion but could hold to the true principles of the Constitution and not be blown about by political winds of the moment.

          I think that a lottery would be a better method of selecting judges for federal and state courts. That would take it completely out of the political arena. Minimum qualifications could be set up for each court and qualified names placed in a jar and drawn out by some blindfolded, voter. Unless I have overlooked some significant factor, that would make for a more impartial judiciary than our present system.

      There is a reason for what you state and it goes back centuries.

      The Koran is not a religious book, it is a war manual. Mosques are the field headquarters, Imams are the generals. Muslims are the soldiers, and all “infidels” are the enemy.

      Their mantra is to control and conquer by any means possible including murder. Their so called ‘god’ Allah requires that you die for him. The true God sent His Son to die for us. Big difference folks.

His son-in-law had all Qur’ans burned and had written the one he wanted. Any passages having to do with jihad are medina verses and aren’t original. Cults do not like the original in any religion. Mohamed instructed believers that, if they have a question on religion, ask either the Jews or Christians. Most men who can quote the Qur’an do so in classic Arabic and don’t understand it, only how to parrot the words. My son-in-law thought my stepdaughter was lying when she said their imam lied. He studied classical Arabic so he could read it himself. Since then they’ve been kicked out of 4 mosques in NYC because he calls imams out for lying. Do your research. I did.

          There is an former FBI agent who spent a significant portion of his career interviewing folks whom the FBI had picked up who were of the Mohammadan persuasion. He had studied the Koran extensively so that he could ask knowledgable questions of his interrogatees.

          When questioned about details of the Korean he relates that all of his detainees would respond, “Oh, you would need to ask Imam XXX that question. He is the most knowledgable Imam of what the Koran says.”

          He could easily ask Imam XXX the question because Imam XXX was serving a long term in federal prison for being the brains behind the Towers first bombing.

          While Popes in past centuries actually fomented wars and planned assassinations so far as I remember in this century, already almost a quarter gone and in the last century, their sins of complicity in murder and warfare were sins of omission rather than commission. They didn’t speak out about Nazism and other evils in the world in a loud enough voice.

          I also believe that no Protestant leader in the U.S. has plotted a mass destruction event or even advocated same.

          So that leaves us with just a Mohammadan leader who was convicted of plotting a mass bombing designed to inflict significant loss of life. I don’t know, but it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck I have always believed it must be a duck and not a crow.

            LCC: And, to add to that, most Muslims only memorize the qur’an in classic Arabic. But, mosty don’t speak it. I learned that a while back from one stepdaughter. Her husband, a Sunni, knew his qur’an from cover to cover. One day coming home from their mosque, she told him the imam misquoted the qur’an, citing a passage that had nothing to do with jihad as an order to kill infidels. He didn’t believe it because they’re brought up to trust the imam. she showed him in her English version and he still doubted but took a course in classic Arabian and today speaks it well. After that, reading it for himself, if he caught an imam lying he went redneck and told the man he was wrong. Right now, they’re on their 4th mosque, getting kicked out of 3 others. that’s not a good thing for the imam, because all the family, friends, and those who respect my son-in-law go with them. the one they’re in now is highly respectful of the US and jesus–and had better be, the imam was a convert and his mother, a black redneck, carries a very big hairbrush 🙂 I told him, if you want to see what apostates do, go to the park (twin towers) and listen to the spirits of the dead weeping for their loved ones. And he agrees and teaches that jihadis are apostates. niio

      Lisa, The US was founded as “One Nation Under God”, not allah. Muslims want to educate you about what they believe is the religion of peace and make you a believer. It’s only peaceful if they are in power under sharia law. Have you been to Europe lately? Have you ever been to a Muslim country? Have you seen how Christians, women, gay and trans folks are being treated over there?

        Better check your history cupcake. One nation under god didn’t appear anywhere until 1954 when it was added to the Pledge of Allegiance as a result of the Commie scare of that era. The founding fathers felt that religion had no place in government and made an effort to keep thred two seperate ftom the beggining. All faiths ard welcome here but just not in government nor is one better then any other.

            CC and N-O:
            Technically, the whole freedom of religion thing was specifically aimed at “state” religion, where unless a person was a member of the specific sect or religion that was also part of the government, they would be subject to financial penalties, persecution and execution. Think the Spanish Inquisition, the Irish “Troubles”, the Muslim conquest of southern Europe, the pograms against Europe’s Jews, the expulsion of the Hugenots from France and French Canada, (read Tennyson’s ‘Evangeline’), the Salem witch trials… on and on.
            The USA was supposed to be a safe haven for religious dissenters – hasn’t always worked out that way, but that was the plan.

              You are 100% correct Miss Kitty. Thank you for refreshing our collective memories about the original intent of the founding fathers.

              While no-others is sadly mistaken about Mohammadism and its cult of hate, he is dead on about One Nation Under God. When I learned the Pledge of Allegiance long, long ago and far, far away, there was no such phrase in the pledge. It still feels foreign to me to recite it that way and most folks recite it incorrectly. It is “One nation under God, indivisible . . .”

              Everyone recites it as “One nation, under God, indivisible . .. .” which is not the way the pledge is written.

              Remember the old, “. . .eats leaves, and shoots. . .” is significantly different from “. . .eats leaves and shoots. . .”

          Better check your history shortcake. US was indeed founded on GOD not that exact reference but the freedom to worship HIM as chosen. The founding documents state that our rights come from our creator-not man. All or most of the founding fathers were indeed christian despite revisionist history lies-there is ample proof. As well as statements they made that our society was made for a god fearing people and that it would work for none other because the bible and christians already have laws that lead to civil society. Islam is a false cult. Christianity is the truth. However in a civil society rights of all are protected. We come from judaeo christian roots. It is inscribed in our buildings.

            Hotcakes, you need to take a closer look…I never said that the country wasn’t founded on Christian principles OR on God… just that the particular section to which I was referring specified that there was to be NO state religion not were people to be punished if they weren’t Christian or a particular sect of Christianity.
            The Founding Fathers were smart enough to realize that by not compelling conversions as a requirement for residence, they were going to get a more diverse and more enthusiastic group of people to support their new nation.
            Also, voluntary conversions brought about by actual interest in the religion and belief in its validity are far more likely to “stick” and bear fruit and they were smart enough to realize that, too.

            Agreed about Islam. It’s a cult, all 27 different versions of the Qur’an are. After the murder of Mohammed, his son-in-law took over and burned all the original ones he could find, then rewrote it adding jihad. I’ve had a lot of good discussions on that with archeologists and Muslim scholars. Because God is love, Africa has gone from 50% Muslim to 20% and it’s falling rapidly. Jesus never attacked pagans, but the religious cults of Judaism. niio

      All minority groups seem to want special rights. Equal means equal. Equal opportunity hiring practices are not equal at all but are designed to give minorities or in some cases, women, a leg up. This has to be done at the expense of someone. Not being a racist or a sexist myself, I only want the best person for the job regardless of what they look like but based on their qualifications and the content of their character.
      I work for a large PDRK based const. co. And have made these statements to our HR dept. I will not pass a qualified applicant by because of their race or gender even if the person is, yes, a white male.
      I completely agree with LCC on this Lisa, i think you are part of the leftist cancel culture and want to shout down those who dis agree with you.
      In construction we have to pay a female the same as a male even though the requirements for her may be less. How is this equal? why do women’s groups shout down women being executed even though they are heinous murderers? Why is Andrea Yates who killed her own 5 kids from youngest to oldest with the oldest ones watching until it was their turn be permitted to live? If I did that I believe I would have been executed. Again does not seem like equality to me.
      Continue living in your own world. I have been in 52 countries and have seen the policies you seek lead to ruin of people and nations.
      demented China Joe even chose a running mate who did not carry her own state. Her only seeming qualification is that she is partially black and a female. When do you suppose the Democrats will get past racism and get open with the business of life?
      Socialism, communism and Fascism all have the exact same end goal; control of the masses. You will not get more rights under that system I dare say. Get away from the propaganda machine we all know as the MSM and do some real research.

            Mike: I am not exactly what one would call a practicing religionist. The last time I was in a church was for my parents’ 50th anniversary in 1987. The last time before that was at my own wedding in 1958 at my prospective bride’s insistence. So, I doubt that anyone would have even the slightest suspicion that I am a regular church goer.

            That said, I am dismayed by the number of attacks on places of worship of all faiths. I am especially dismayed at what I see as a deliberate attacks by elected officials directed at the christian faith and the jewish faith.

            Like Consco, I think all faiths should be treated the same by the government and that is at an arm’s length. I believe social groups who want to have a religious club on school grounds after school hours or before school hours should be able to do so. I believe that monuments such as crosses commemorating military lost in service to this country erected by civic or military groups on public lands should be permitted. If one looks at what group lost the biggest percentage of its followers in any war, certainly christians of all varieties lead the way followed closely by jews.

            I believe anyone who finds a cross or a star of david commemorating members of that religion who lost their lives offensive is exercising what is the problem with all this political correctness afflicting us today.

            Sure, I am annoyed when I read posts such as Lisa or No-other’s. It bothers me that someone has what I view as a badly distorted view of reality. I might choose to respond and I try, although I am sure I fail, not to be insulting or demeaning or use vulgarity in my post. I know sometimes I fail and the evil twin posts for me, but I do try to be civil.

            That said, when I got to bed at night I don’t lose any sleep over what I consider misguided views. I am not emotionally upset. I don’t need a safe place to sit and hold my blankie and suck my thumb. After I have posted my comment and moved on to another website it gets not a single thought until, perhaps, I read it again when I review added comments to the main article.

            I don’t go around bragging about my sporadic church attendance. In fact this site is the most I have ever mentioned it to anyone. I don’t need others telling me about their religious experience. I know some have expressed their religious opinions and quoted various religious book passages. I don’t need it and I don’t believe this forum is the place for it but I am not going to lose sleep or seek out my blankie because someone posted some religious quotation. I think we all would be much better off if we developed a little thicker skin with regard to perceived insults.

            I read an essay this week. I think I will have to copy it and post it here or maybe I can just post the url. In essence the essayist says, “Don’t confuse stupidity with maliciousness. Too frequently what you perceive as malicious intent is merely stupidity on the part of the other.”

            Wow! What a penetrating analysis of situations where we think some offensive act or commission is malicious and it is simply stupidity or some other negligent omission. I found the essay quite profound in its simplicity. I will get the url and post it.

Or a parent who objects to pan-gender and gender reassignment education in schools. Or a pro-life tax payer who objects to tax dollars being used to fund a supposedly private organization like planned parenthood.

      Real patriots want everyone to have to have equal rights, to be treated fairly, and to have their voices heard equally – not to show blatant favoritism towards the “I’m a victim of a biased society” flavor of the day.

      When a Muslim cuts your head off because you won’t convert, or allows you to live a life of servitude because you did think about the time you formed your way of thinking and see if you feel the same way. They are to kill all infidels if they won’t convert. They claim there religion is one of peace. But only when all infidels are dead will they be at peace.

The only thing that can hold them together is a caliph, and they tend to have short lifespans. Once Mohamed was killed, Islam broke up and while his successor killed a lot of dissidents, that was more or less the end of unity.
        According to prophecy, Islam will take over briefly, then break up and destroy itself enough to collapse in rebellion by their own and by nations they colonised. Groups like the dnc are stupid enough to think they can control them.

      That was my thought on reading the main article, Spike. While 2020 was not exactly the best year of our lives, it certainly was nothing compared to past years. Even in the lifetime of some of us 1941 and 1942 were far worse years when it looked almost certain that fascist regimes were truly going to conquer the world.

      Do you want to talk about disease stalking the population? For those of you old enough to remember the days of the polio epidemics, think about them for a moment. Movie theaters, the major source of public entertainment in those days were closed. Public swimming pools, another source of summertime entertainment for younger people closed. No public gatherings for young people during the summer months due to the fear of polio. In those days the only home entertainment was the radio and during the day it was soaps all day long for the housewife to listen to. The Arthur Godfrey show was top entertainment during the day. Children weren’t allowed outdoors to play with other children — because their parents decided to follow that course of action, not because some power-hungry politician decided that was the best course of action.

      I know all about those years because I spent the winter and summer of 1948 confined to bed recuperating from a bout of rheumatic fever. I recovered due to being treated with the latest in antibiotic medicine, sulfanilamide short-cutted to sulfa. It was the miracle drug of the late 40’s. I spent most of the summer in a sanitarium for children where a significant number of the patients in the ward I was on were in iron lungs. How short our memories. Those monster devices were what kept young polio patients from suffocating, much like how folks die from CoVD19.

      Younger followers of this list will probably ask, “What is an iron lung?” Look it up. It kept hundreds, if not thousands of young sufferers of polio from suffocating from the disease. That was a far worse scourge that ran its course every summer through thousands of young, otherwise healthy people. At least CoVD19 is more of a scourge to older and already sick people.

      CoVD19? Ha. Without the nanny states of so many countries ruining the economy, CoVD19 would hardly be a blip on history’s record.

      I’ve been following the obituaries in the local paper each week for some years now to see who of my contemporaries is no longer here. Every week for the number of years I have been following this somewhat morbid practice the number of obits each week has run between 20 to 35. So far in 2020 that number has not changed. In fact, this past week there were only 17. This is the official stats produced from county records, not the paid obits that the paper publishes for a fee. It is just the list of who died this week in the county for whom a death certificate was produced. It is part of the county records just like the sale of homes or number of voters registered. No major upswing in the number of deaths this year over past years. No sudden surge to 50 or 100 deaths as one would expect if this were indeed the deadly plague that our so-called leaders are “protecting” us from.

      Might you die from it? Most assuredly. However, as Spike and Stu pointed out, every time you ride in an automobile, the chances of being seriously injured or killed are far greater than CoVD19. We need to tell these nanny state politicians to STFU and address the real problems of the various states like the PDRK and it’s grossly out-of-whack unfunded pension liability that threatens to drown the state in uncontrolled unfindable debt. How about our so-called “freeway” which are hardly that with the highest gas tax in the U.S. supposedly to fund road construction and repair. Want to see what some third world country roads look like without international travel? Just come to the PDRK. You will know when you cross the state line. The roads suddenly are all pot-holed with broken pavement. This in the state that at one time had what was described as the finest road system in the world.

      Okay. Enough of my Tuesday morning diatribe. They said, “Don’t worry. Cheer up. Things could be worse.” So I cheered up and sure enough, things got worse.

        The other part not mentioned is how the “science” of the Chinese Bat Meat flu has been hijacked. Even Fauci the fraud has admitted now that he has made numbers up.
        If our so called “experts” are doing this, where does that leave the rest of us in terms of what is real and what isn’t?
        Being Born in 61 I saw the very end of the polio scourge. I had a friend who was partially crippled by it. This is absolutely nothing in comparison to polio. Nothing, zero, nada.
        Chuck and myself were both raised in a time where crying wolf got you into trouble. Now we have an entire political party and their minions in science doing that in spades.
        We also have the cancel culture shouting us down.
        Live your lives people and do not live in fear. Do not trust your government to tell you the truth. Those days are long since past.

        People have such short memories. No ammo, no reloading components? Right. Just like it was after Sandy Hook. Not saying they will ever be available again since the Demorats have taken over the election process but it was just as bad then as now. After Sandy Hook there were no ARs available. There are now…just no ammo for them.

        No prepper should have a need for ammo because up until about a year ago, bulk surplus ammo was as cheap as it had been in many years. 16 cents for brass 9mm. 20 cents for 7.62×39. 27 cents for 5.56×45. 40 cents for 7.62×51. If you didn’t buy then, it is your own fault.

        10 years ago the Bird Flu in China was an extreme concern because it had a 50% mortality rate if a human got it as I recall. Only a handful of human to human transmissions were even suspected but many chicken to human transmissions in China and Vietnam. Most people have no recollection of this. That would be an EOTWAWKI scenerio. It can still happen too.

        When Europeans invaded America 500 years ago the Indians had great death counts from Influenza. Small pox was much worse yet. I don’t think this Covid is near as bad as the flu was to the Indians then. We are dying only because our immune system is naive to it. Just like Mers and Sars..a few died the first year and after that we built immunity to it and don’t hear much about them anymore. Covid 19 would be the same if the politicians didn’t have great plans for it.

          Completely agree with you here. The writing was on the wall clear back in 1968 with the GCA. Then again in 1986 with Volmer/McClure. Then 1994 with the so called Assault weapons ban. 2008 during the economic collapse. 2012 with Sandy Hook. The list goes on. If you did not take care of these needs then shame on you. For those who were too young or who had uninformed parents not much you could do.
          Ammo prices were depressed for 4 years. Made buying reloading not really feasible. UNLESS you were thinking way ahead.
          Some call this fear mongering and I get that. But when we suffer the inevitable economic collapse imagine what that hobby will be worth? Especially for those who have the supplies set aside. Brass and Bullets do not go bad. If stored right they will last for generations.
          Dark clouds are on the horizon regardless of your politics. Living debt free being prepared in as many ways as you can will be the key. for those who are totally dependent on the Govt. I am sorry. Hopefully you can do something to help yourselves along the way. Several on here do not have a lot but know WAY more than I do about how to survive with nothing. I follow their comments religiously as I strive for continuous improvement.
          for those who believe the Govt will always be there to help and bigger govt is the answer, good luck.

          Just a clarification. We did not build up an immunity to SARS or MERS. We eradicated them by containment. It was easier to do with both of those because (unlike Covid19) you weren’t contagious until after you became symptomatic, and the symptoms were quite severe so people rarely left their house if they were contagious. With a 40% death rate MERS was very effectively controlled because anyone with symptoms sought help early and much of the affected areas in the middle east went into hard lockdown to prevent the spread.
          The reason you dont hear much about them anymore is because they have been effectively eradicated (at least in the human population).

        Far from being the new flu, most epidemiologists refer to covid19 as the new polio because while it may not have a very high death rate, it has an exceptionally high disability rate. more than 15% of people who catch it (even those who were mildly affected or asymptomatic at the time) will develop permanent damage. It may not be as obvious as polio with the shriveled and paralysed limbs, but the damage is worse. Heart, lungs, kidneys and brains are all showing damage and in so many it is permanent. There are now large long term care facilities being set up all over the would to deal with the massive amount of covid long-haulers – just like the polio centers of the past. hindsight will show this was more insidious and damaging than we were led to believe.

      She tells of going thru the Typhoid, Diphtheria, Tuberculosis and several other REAL illnesses!
      No masks, no distancing. If you got sick you went to the sanitarium until you were better, or dead. But they never locked down the entire country!

    Maybe an internal unrest. maybe racial, maybe religious, maybe political. But to me there is enough bad feelings amongst people right now that it won’t take much to spark it off. I do not feel that biden has the grit to handle it. Just my thought, but we need to be watchful of what is going on and be prepared. I do not mean by joining any certain faction, but by watching that our rights are not stepped on any more than they are.

      I’m both a prepper (as much as my resources will allow) and a recent convert to the Jehovah’s Witnesses. (I’m a military retiree as well, my choice was the result of many years of searching for the truth; but that is a topic for another day.) My reason for mentioning that is, FWIW, the Witnesses have all circled the wagons, no more door-to-door witnessing (mail & phone calls only), no more huge assemblies in person (all by Zoom now), the governing body believes all of the events and unrest we are seeing may be the final throes of the world in Satan’s hands, before the tribulation starts. Only time will tell if this is really “it”, or just another blip in history like the black plague, the volcanic eruptions which caused snow in summer, and other things which I’m sure caused people to wonder if “this is it” at the time. BUT, for those of you who are religiously inclined, I totally recommend the website jw.org, for Bible study on all sorts of topics including everything that can be found regarding the “end times”, and what Jesus and others said would be the signs to recognize. 2 Tim 3:1-5; Matt 24:11-12…

    Re “One of the greatest dangers we face today, is that of either political party controlling both houses of Congress and the Presidency.” I would add that the greatest danger is if the Democrats take total power.

    The Biden crime family has already sold us out to the Chinese. You won’t hear any mention of that by the liberal press.

    This demonstrates the true power of the press to influence and control. Biden’s numerous gaffs and corruption were never reported by the mainstream press. They ignored it. And the liberal mushrooms had no clue.

    But then, history shows us that all empires eventually fall. And that process usually starts from within.

    I hope there is a God and that He is watching and willing to pull us back from the brink.

    I know nobody who thinks things will be better on 010121.

    I would have made a connection between ‘Covid19’ and the removal of our rights. It’s a planned agenda. The whole thing has been planned for probably decades. Remember the UN Agenda 2025 and 2030? The ‘covid’ outbreak has been used, abused, to play out what ‘they’ just rehearsed again months before the actual ‘outbreak’ (Event 201). This is planned!

    Despite its ‘virulence’ which kills less than 0.2% of people, this ‘virus’ has never been isolated or genetically analyzed (what they did is find 37 base pairs in an unpurified soup of lung fluid; so these 37 may be parts of the sample donor’s cells or some microbes which live in the lungs normally. What they used are computer programs to stitch together a ‘coronavirus’ that contains the 37 base pairs. There are about 30,000 base pairs in a typical coronavirus if I read this correctly. The famous image that determines our lives and is used to instill fear and obedience, is a computer generated image as well.
    The US and China worked together on weaponizing bat coronaviruses (game of function research). Fauci sent US dollars to the Wuhan lab from where the never described virus ”escaped.’
    This virus has also NEVER been proven or even shown to cause ‘covid.’

    Since everything, incl. our rights and liberties, are based on the PCR test which never can show an infection and never was meant to be used for diagnosis, every number we hear is a guess driving an agenda (incl. ‘The Great Reseat’ – http://www.weforum.org).

    The PCR test even is run now at such amplification rate that even fauci admits on tape, that ‘any positive result obtained* is definitely a false positive.’ (*at cycles over 35).

    Everybody who touches the official covid story profits:
    States get rewards per covid patient (at the first CARE package, CA got $150,000/patient, Alaska got $300,000/patient). Hospitals get bounties for ‘finding’ positive cases either via useless PCR test or other vague assessments incl: person lives in a declared ‘hot spot,’ person reports having ‘subjective fever’, headaches, a cough, … Hospitals get extra ($13,000) for admitting a case positive person even if s/he comes in for a broken leg, and hospitals get an extra $39,000 for putting a ‘covid’ patient on a ventilator which kills most people in these instances. In the 2020 spring ‘epicenter of all epicenters in NYC’, ‘Covid nurses’ got $10,000/WEEK and ‘covid doctors’ got $50,000/WEEK whether they worked or waited sometimes for weeks, to be assigned to a covid unit.

    The covid emergency packages contain millions of dollars for research (NIH, more for Fauci’s infectious disease institute etc). However, no research is spent on actually isolating the virus that rips away more of our freedoms and liberties every day.

    So, the greatest danger in my eyes is that people don’t wake up and stand up against tyranny before it is too late. Masks=symbol that we have to shut up. Masks and social distancing and lockdowns are used to induce fear, docile obedience, and to ruin the middle class and independent businesses. The goal is to control us more than most of us even can imagine. If we run out of the means to support ourselves, and get dependent on government handouts (universal income) for survival, then they can do anything they want/ Even if you think you’re safe because you’re a prepper with own land and food, if the government gets hold of the masses, then you’ll be next. It’s just a matter of time. They already try to get rid of cash, with credit cards or their desired digital currency, EVERYTHING will be traceable.

    I too see a covid 21. There are already strains/mutations piling up, one from the UK, one from S–Africa. These new strains will be just as unexplored and theoretical as cov-19. they will be the new measures to continue lockdowns until the agenda makers are satisfied with the results. And these strains will be the cover for the deaths and diseases will see from these experimental interventions which they call vaccines. They’re already damaging health care workers and sick and old people in nursing homes etc. These vaccines may cause infertility. The UK warns their people about it, not here. People don’t know that these ‘vaccines’ haven’t even finished their short trials yet. People receiving them are guinea pigs. There is liability for the manufacturers if people get sick or die from these products. There is a reason for this. …

    I’ve been in crowds of several hundreds and a thousand without either of us wearing these useless dehumanizing masks or keeping anti-social distance. You know how sick I’ve gotten? NOT at all. I was happy to be among better-than normal people, who are informed and stand up for their liberties. You know how many of the other people participating in these rallies got sick (even though one time all thousand of us were stuck in one large room)? NOBODY. It has been more than a month and still everybody is walking, standing, … healthy.

    Where was the police while we were gathering? They were sitting in their cars or in the police station that was right behind one of the places where we gathered. or they didn’t even show up when we gathered in the parking lot of a business owner who refused to lockdown.

    If people jus sit back, ignore the facts, or think it’s not their business because they are safe and independent. Think again.

    The danker isn’t a virus it’s the desire of a few sick people to control the many and every resource on Earth, just as it has been laid out for decades in every agenda of the ‘New World Order’ which unfortunately will come into reality if people keep hiding in fear behind their masks and/or in the false assumption that they will be spared. The time to refuse being dominated and abused for a flu-like virus is now.

    Our last 3 Presidents have been shockingly ignorant of history, ignorant of the world beyond our borders, and ignorant of foreign policy. Joe Biden is the opposite, he has a great deal of knowledge but will happily ignore it all as he did in actively helping the Bush administration push the false intelligence used to justify invading and occupying Iraq. My fear for 2021 is Joe the Chicken hawk going to war with China over Taiwan, or Russia over Ukraine. We have never fought a modern war with a country that can strike back against our homeland. Russia and China have both said that if we attack their territory they can and will attack ours, but our generals and politicians seem not to have heard. The whole idea scares the concentrated liquid waste out of me, that an old fool like Joe could start a war the end of which we can’t imagine.

      IM: But Joe will only be president for two years and a day, so look for him to step down on January 22, 2023 and Commie Harries to take over as La Suprema.

      Here’s hoping that the plague will keep him busy between now and the drop dead date.

      If the vice president serves more than two years in the term in which they become president by taking over from a sitting president, then they can only serve one more term, thus a vp doing a Gerald Ford is limited to 4 years and however many years over two he served in his predecessor’s term.

      However if the vp should assume the golden throne with less than two years to go, ie., one year and 364 days, then that vp is eligible to serve two full terms, thus If Commie waits until Two Shot serves two years and a day before she pushes him down the staircase, she can serve nine years and 364 days.

      Give us the benefit of your vastly superior knowledge so that we too may benefit from such enlightened wisdom.

      Is expressing an honestly held opinion, however much it may be in error, some crime now in contravention of the Divinely imposed right to free speech as enumerated in our Constitution?

      Perhaps as Colonel Jessup so forcefully stated, “You can’t stand the truth” and thus can only resort to vulgarity which, at least in my view, indicates a low intelligence with so limited a vocabulary as to not be able to adequately articulate reasoned opinion.

    Everyone deciding they don’t need to wear a mask won’t cause an outbreak! Most positive results are from masked people. Wake up! I’m more concerned about civil war than I am civil unrest. I hope everyone has their preps caught up by January 6. That might be the next landmark historic day in American history. And finally, once this virus gets under some sort of control, we need to make China pay before they release another. It’s time to go to war on the evil that is Communism once and for all.

    “Age Jay” is absolutely right about this whole pandemic scenario being a long term, pre-planned, false flag event, being used to continue to destroy this country from the inside out! And much like 911, this pandemic is the next excuse being used to take more, if not all of our rights away! The NWO is alive and well and are above all so called free countries! We are allowed to vote so that we believe we have a say in what goes on but it’s all controlled by the puppet masters who control the way the world goes around! Little by little they have been brainwashing the “sheeple” of this country and the world, killing the environment for a buck, spraying poison on us from the sky right in front of our eyes, and somehow convincing people it’s just water vapor! Then they actually admit that they’re trying to decrease the amount of sunshine that reaches the earth to decrease global warming and plan to do so for the next 200 years! But unless folks heard this one time announcement, which the majority did not, most folks have no idea! The sheeple are too busy pointing fingers at the whistleblower activists who have been researching these practices, and calling them conspiracy theory lunatics, just like the CIA has done to anyone who believes in UFOs! Only in the case of chemtrails and geo-engineering, the proof is in the sky every day, in every part of the world! But people can’t see it! Just like they can’t seem to see the residual loss of their freedom! And once they finally do, it will be too late! It’s gonna come down to another damn revolution to stop it, only I don’t know how many people will be ready to sacrifice their lives, like our forefathers did, to maintain our freedom and unalienable rights!
    You better believe we’re gonna have plenty of shittier years to come! And while we’re talking about NWO and the plans they have for our future, please look up Agenda 21, which also is referred to as “Sustainable Development” when they talk in code. It’s incomprehensible!
    Oh, and one last thing, did anyone know that the latest cell phone technology, 5G, that they have basically inundated the world with, is also a very powerful military weapon, that was already used in the Gulf War, and when people with compromised immune systems are exposed to the radioactive energy for any amount of time, they experience symptoms exactly like those said to have covid? Ironically, Wuhan China had just gotten 5G at the same time that the outbreak occurred. And one of those very powerful “Elite” bastards, Elon Musk, was somehow allowed to launch 200 satellites into the orbit of our Earth, in order to improve internet capabilities for all of we worthless slaves that the elite plans to decrease the population of, down to 5 hundred million! Of course, maybe he really is just a very nice guy, just like Bill Gates! I don’t recall being notified or having a chance to vote on whether some billionare should be allowed to launch that much bullshit into the orbit of our panet, do you? Since when do these people give a shit about any of us, let alone invest in us having better internet…unless there’s another reason underneath the common cloak of lies that is always fed to the public! “We can have it our own way, if it’s done just how they say!” Metallica, “And Justice for All”

You never know when some country decides it wants proof that you have been vaccinated for something before allowing you there. As long as it is voluntary or recommended here. I don’t mind being required to get a vaccination should I want to travel to another country. There is such a thing as “The Common Good” something which I believe this would be.

        Yes voluntary is one thing thing, forced on an entire nation is quite another.

          k793: liberals do love their god-like mandates. A shot now means not having to worry over them made by companies forced to pay kickbacks and cheating because they have permission to. It means no Gates vaccines till after, if, biden takes over.

    One crisis I didn’t see mentioned: when the national and statewide moratoriums on evictions expire, millions and maybe tens of millions of families who either couldn’t or didn’t keep up with their rent will be evicted from their dwellings. Whether they deserve their fates or not (some do and some don’t), what happens to this country when there are maybe tens of millions of homeless people roaming around desperately seeking shelter and sustenance for themselves and their families?

      1/4 cup of kosher salt to each 5 lbs. of shredded cabbage. Mix. Put it in a crock, cover, & let it sit for a spell at 68-75 degrees F……………………….Sauerkraut, Mmmm!
      ———————————————————————
      1 lb cooked ground or shredded meat(any kind), 1 med. onion and 3 cloves garlic, sauteed. Mix meat & veggies together with 2 eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, salt & pepper, a scouche of Nutmeg. Wrap a couple tablespoonfuls in a cabbage leaf. Put 1/4″ water in pan, cover, bake at 3-fiddy for 30-40 minutes…………………..Nummers!

        TAL I never use salt to make kraut. No salt and about 80+F it ferments fast, stays crunchy, and freezes well. It’s called summer kraut. Much tastier than with salt. niio

    Our enemies always make the same gaffe/airhead mistake. They listen to the loudest, most shrill whiner in politics and believe them. Then suffer for it. All they see now is America paying them weregelt to not hurt us, and laugh. You would think by now the less than intellectual would have been weeded out of them. but, liberals are always ready to encourage a war by acting weak. niio

      I’m afraid that Biden is going to be another Jimmy Carter – who’s going to get taken hostage this time?

      Also, the economy is going to continue to tank. It’s a domino effect. As businesses continue to close due to local mandates, there will be increasing numbers that simply won’t have the resources to reopen. As a result, more businesses that supported the ones already shut down (ie restaurants), will themselves be put out of business, (ie commercial laundries, wholesalers) and that leads to further economic disaster (the people who supplied the soap to the laundry, the company that made the boxes used by the wholesalers).
      Not to mention all of the workers at all if these companies will either get their hours drastically cut or be laid off completely.
      People don’t realize how much if the economy is service based.

        Miz Kitty: Remember the Carter depression. Carter was handing out money to businesses to stay afloat, then even more because Ag rep Butz said get big or get out. A lot of aggies took the money, paid too much for acreage, and then Carter yanked the rug out from under them. It turned out to be a land grab by the feds to add to illegally owned federal parks. The land was then leased back to ranchers and farmers. Egypt, at the time of Joseph, did the same. The pharaoh was the first in history to claim he owned his nation. Dems are stating no one should own property. That it all belongs to the government. niio

        Miss Kitty, I would be satisfied if it were ONLY that Biden will be another Jimmy Carter, e.g. weak-willed and likely to be overrun by the opposition, both domestic and international. Unfortunately, I am pretty sure the actual plan by the powers-that-be (Dems, technocrats, far left, globalists, or combination of all the above) is to remove Mr. Biden from office as soon as can be arranged, once his adminstration is in place; and to put Ms. Harris in as President, who will be so grateful for her elevation in status and celebrity that she will gladly agree to ANY and all far-left, world-controlling policies that may be put before her. While she laps up the photo-shoots and adoring “press” interviews about women being empowered and her favorite color/dish/fashion designer/author, and the terrible struggles she had as an immigrant from Canada where she apparently celebrated Kwanzaa, Hannukah and Christmas on alternating years, the left-run administration will quietly enact every left-wing policy objective they desire, from the “Green New Deal” to Agenda 21 to nationalized healthcare. No doubt they will claim “transparency” like Obama did, while covering up every major change in policy as far as possible from the US citizens, with the MSM happily covering for them as long as they continue to get their “exclusive” interviews.

          Spice Lady I think you are right. Though LLC is probably right about them waiting till 2023 to oust Biden. Ms. Commie will be so ecstatic that she’ll do whatever she is told. After 10 years of her will be looking back to the the good ole days of Mr Obama with fondness. We should have been paying more attention during The Clintons to see where we were headed.

          Ah yes! Kwanzaa. That special time of year! Brings back memories of Professor Maulana Karenga doesn’t it? The Cal State Long Beaxh African Studies Professor! Oh if Betsy Devose had only been around then! So many lives could have been saved! Maybe even little Kamala! Has he finished his prison sentence for tying up naked women with electrical cords, torturing them with soldering irons and then hitting them in the head with a toaster? Irks the life out of me when Kwanzaa is auto populated on my iPad calendar!

          SpiceLady: biden has said several times he’ll step down and let harris take over. who would be harris’ VP? Hillary the Genocidal Psycho. Harris has always shown she’s so far left she should fall off into the Pacific. Clinton showed she has no soul, no compassion, and is deadly in her contempt for all of us. she, more than the rest, is firmly attached to soros, a former gestapo agent.

        The Left knows WELL how much of the economy is service-based. That’s why service-based sectors have been targeted for the most stringent aspects of lockdown.

    “That’s not the surge I’m concerned about though. The one I’m seeing is the one that will come when everyone suddenly decides that we no longer need to wear masks and practice social distancing.”

    Sorry, stopped reading after this asinine comment. HOAXID-19 is no worse than season flu. Face diapers DONT WORK. Social distancing does NOTHING. Its all about govt CONTROLLING your lives. It also has a 99.95% survival rate. STOP with the fear porn already.

    The one thing I think you may have missed in the “list of coming events” is the alien invasion. Even Space-The Final Frontier is fraught with terrible unknowns.I have seen with my own eyes things that were otherwise unexplainable, unidentified and not of Earthly origin.

    If its not aliens making their presence know to the masses, our societal collapse will surely be in the for of civil war. The USA is a completely divided nation. One side is delusional and the other side is righteous in their indignation of what is happening to this country. Your guess as to which side is which. We are doomed to fail. It happened to ancient Rome, it happened top the enlightened Greeks, it will happen to us. The best advice of this article is “arm yourselves”. Be ready to fight to survive-for survival will depend on your ability to defend and attack. I really wish I knew this crap in advance…I would never have had children. Terrible that they will have to grow up in this mess.

    Indeed, City Chick. Municipal taxes went up around here, and I SERIOUSLY doubt there’ll be any sort of amnesty for 2021. Same for the ridiculously onerous fees and permits. My city wants me to spend the cost of a used car to replace my own door.
    People are going to be angry because their landlords won’t give rent breaks, not understanding that these taxes, fees, and permits all constitute the landlords’ overhead. I’m wondering if I’ll see damaged rental properties the way I saw damaged foreclosures when the housing bubble burst.

    On the news tonight – the 80 year old landlord of a 10 unit apartment building in Harlem can no longer pay his taxes and is losing his home and the building which is his life savings. Now the city will kick him out and take over the property – like they do in socialist countries. Only problem for DeBlasio is the landlord just happens to be a hardworking person of color and that doesn’t play all that well on the political optics! Meanwhile, no one is really buying these days so if your caught short, you can’t even sell

    FEMA has just released a National Risk Index Ranking risks across the Nation by county showing what they deem the worst and the best places to live, and what the risks are in each area. No real surprises here, but it may push populations into different areas and raise taxes and insurance rates as well.

    That loathsome scumbag Chuck Schumer just tweeted “Buckle up” after AP declared the Democrats winners in the elections they stole. Mind you, the AP doesn’t declare elections, but the leftist media uses things like this to “encourage” candidates to concede.

      Dominion strikes again. 500 ‘extra’ ballots were found last night, all for Warnock, who’s probably hoping to find a woman to beat half to death to celebrate. No more early voting. It’s how the dnc calculates how many votes it needs to buy from the chicoms. And, 14,000 IDs were found in MN, in one city alone, all fake. As far as I can find out, all of the people on them are young Chinese of fighting age. niio

    Good article. Yes we are in for it. We must resist any attempt to confiscate out firearms. Masks do work. Not the cloth ones. If they didn’t we wouldn’t be using them in the hospitals to take care of COVID patients and everyone of us would have gotten the disease, instead of a fraction. Most of the other stuff said hear about the disease here is wrong, except that the so-called experts really don’t know what they are talking about. I’ve gotten my information from sifting though large volumes of scientific data. Guys be prepared for anything.!!!!!! By the way, one of my hobbies is history and Miss Kitty is dead on! Out founders were very privy to all governments going back thousands of years and why they didn’t work. The continuous civil war in England was all over religion.
