You can feel it coming. The mask mandates are starting to show up in isolated places already. There is talk of a new “vaccine” to combat the latest “variant”. The DoomPorn is rolling from the mainstream media. Considering it is the waning weeks of summer, you can expect this to get worse as people start to get colds and the flu that are immediately labelled as “Covid-19”. Since everyone has already had some flavor of the Chinese coronavirus, it seems likely that any illness you get will be categorized as being “positive for Covid”.
In March of 2020, we didn’t know what the hell was happening. I look at my posts from the beginning of Covid and what I read is a lot of uncertainty. I wrote about Trump seeming very tentative and uncertain. I was writing a lot about Covid because it was all that the news was talking about, like this: America Holds Her Breath…
I am not sure if many people understand that we are in the very beginning of this disaster, not the middle or near the end. The number of cases is still fairly low but if I understand the charts and they are accurate, we are looking at a significant uptick this week and even more so the following. Instead of a few people dying in a state like Indiana, it will be dozens or even hundreds.
The ripple effects of the shutdown will start being felt soon as orders are cancelled, more workers are sent home to wait it out and industries start to mothball machinery for an indeterminate amount of time. From restaurants to construction to entertainment, people are going to be out of work and being very stingy with their money which will snowball into other industries.
The disaster is still going on 2 1/2 years later but now we mostly understand that the threat from the virus was nothing compared to the threat of the response from unscrupulous politicians and globohomo executives.
Still, we are about to enter the winter and this winter is also the real start of the 2024 Presidential election cycle so it is near certain that They are going to ramp up the Covid hysteria once again.
In 2020 many people were caught off guard and thanks to residual trust for our institutions many people masked up and got the vaccine, thinking there was no way They would lie about something that serious. Not many of us, if we are being honest, were really prepared for Sam’s Club and Costco to run out of toilet paper. I took this picture in our local Sam’s in March of 2020:
That is where the toilet paper should be and it was empty, as the racks wrapped around the back of the store the bottled water was also gone as were the staple foods like beans and rice and the meat coolers were likewise empty.
It is not an excuse but it is understandable that many people were caught a bit off-guard in 2020, it was unlike anything we had experienced before. That was 2020 but now in 2023 we don’t have the “didn’t see it coming” excuse. We can see it coming down the road like a circus mixed with a parade, horns blaring and banners waving. Last time I was in a great position on most items but I still found myself getting caught up in the panic. This time around, and there will be a this time around, it is critical to get out ahead of this thing as I suspect it will be worse the next time around.
The 2020 stuff, with a one-two punch of Covid and race riots, seems like a planned trial run to gauge how we would react. The answer was certainly quite encouraging for Them. Tens of millions tripped over themselves to comply with social distancing, lock-downs, masking and “vaccines”. Even many “conservative” Christian churches decided that they didn’t really mean all that stuff about the after-life and the importance of church and closed their doors. Those events caused a rift in our society that will likely never heal since people still have “I got my Covid-19 Vaccine” frames on their profile pictures on Faceberg.
Now consider this. Politically the Left is heading into 2024 with a doddering old man as the “President”. Even diehard Democrats are starting to realize that Joe lost his marbles a long time ago. He isn’t the only one of course as Mitch “The Glitch” McConnell had his software freeze up again the other day: McConnell Malfunctions: Senate Minority Leader Glitches Hard In Shocking Second Incident. This chart from that story was pretty horrifying.
The average age in Congress has increased sharply over the past several decades. Whereas in the 1980s, only about 5 percent of Congress was over 70, now almost 25 percent is.https://t.co/cGpuf0YBIZ pic.twitter.com/g4R62LkKND— Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) July 27, 2023
A quarter of the people making our laws (as instructed by Them of course) are over 70, well past the age when you can start collecting Social Security. These people should be retired but instead we have Biden, Mitch the Glitch and Diane “Crypt Keeper” Feinstein still voting for bills that impact our lives.
Biden looks to be in some trouble, assuming he is the nominee. With inflation and gas prices as they are, and Biden being unable to walk up stairs, Trump might actually be in a position to win a fair election. With not much to run on, the Democrats are going to have a hard time retaking the House and the math favors the Republicans in the Senate. I just checked the Senators up for re-election next year and pretty much all of the vulnerable seats are currently held by Democrats. The idea, however implausible, of Trump winning in 2024 and (hopefully) having learned some lessons from his last term, with a Republican majority in the House and Senate is the apocalypse to the Left. To stop that from having even the faintest possibility of happening?
Nothing is off the table.
What happened in 2020 with the “Russian collusion” stuff and the George Floyd riots and of course Covid-19 was peanuts compared to what They will be willing to do to prevent Trump from winning again. You know and I know that politics is fake and gay but to these lunatics? Politics is their entire existence. Tucker even used the “A” word the other day, suggesting that if you graph out what They have been doing to get Trump out of the way, it ends with assassination (around the 33 minute mark).
I am not so sure about that but I admit nothing is too ludicrous to not at least consider at this point, given the years of absolute insanity we have witnesses.
My point is that you should be using these lazy late summer days to think about what happened the last time and figuring out what if anything you need to be doing now. Is your ammo stacked deep and high? Do you have toilet paper? How are your food stores? I read something else I wrote back in 2020, What Do You Do When Everyone Else Is Panicking?, and it closed with this:
Keep calm. Be strategic. Worry about what you can control and not so much about things you can’t. As the Zman said today: The first duty of the prepared is to keep their wits about them.
Take care of you and yours, and then your neighbors. Expect the worst from everyone else. You won’t go wrong with that strategy.
If you are expecting the worst, you won’t be caught too off guard and hopefully you won’t panic. Panic can get you killed. On the list of things I am anticipating are on the table for 2024 are things like: jailing or outright assassinating the Republican candidate. A mass casualty event that would put Las Vegas to shame. A new “pandemic” but a real one this time. A false flag op that provides a pretext for martial law and suspending elections. A war with China and/or Russia. Let’s be blunt about how They think:
A million dead Americans is a small price to pay to keep Trump out of the White House.
Be as ready as you can, physically and perhaps even more importantly mentally. It is coming.
