The Great COVID Migration
Interestingly, at least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY driver’s licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021. In total, during this COVID nonsense, 104,960 New Yorkers made the switch to Florida. New Jersey came in second with 53,901, and the migration has also been from Georgia (48,143), Illinois (46,042), and California (43,801). The stats are really astounding. We will see taxes rise further in those states because the people leaving are the highest income earners.

The general talk has been that the end of the fiat monetary system is imminent. Central bank digital currencies allegedly threaten the US dollar, according to some very shallow reasoning and a total lack of understanding about why the dollar is even the reserve currency. Beyond that delusion, these people are claiming that cryptocurrency will end fiat currency. But even private cryptocurrency is not backed by anything either.
Then there is serious talk behind the curtain in addition to the United Nations trying to become the one-world government that will be a dictatorship with no democratic process whatsoever. There is some argument that the central banks’ digital currencies will not displace the dollar and that title will go to the digital “IMF Coin” that will become the new reserve currency.
The dollar is the reserve currency, just as was the Roman silver denarius because it was not just the financial capital of the world. Still, they both represented the major economy, and everyone was trying to sell to the core. Rome conquered most of the Western World at that time, and most found it beneficial to be part of Rome. They often received capital investment into emerging markets, and they produced local goods to be sold to Rome. For example, Egypt was a major supplier of wheat to Rome.
Most transactions today are digital, so converting paper dollars to cryptocurrency will not dramatically alter the economy. The UN and IMF are simply trying to take over the world for a power play. They do not have armies, nor do they possess economies to qualify for the world’s financial capital. They are drunk with this delusion of power that by sheer decree, they can rule the world. From the very beginning, the elite saw in their vision that they would dominate the world and end democracy. Huxley was against the United States and believed that “unrestricted individualism” was equally wrong as a total dictatorship as in communism.
This is what Kalus Schwab is saying in his 8 points for 2030 — end the threat of “populism,” as was the case in electing Trump, by eliminating any right of the people to be heard. What Schwab, the UN, and IMF see is retaining some basic human rights but removing our right to even say what kind of government we want. In their world, only the elite know what is best — not the people.
This is the real agenda behind cryptocurrencies to lay the foundation for the ultimate power being handed to the UN and the IMF. This folly will not succeed. For such entities are like men and even corporations — they are never immortal. I will celebrate the day the flags of the UN are lowered forever. It has always been a very dangerous and lustful entity drooling for supreme power.

These people are truly insane. If they believe that humans are the most destructive thing on this planet, then they should lead the way to mass suicide. It makes one think that perhaps in protest, we need to go have as many children as possible, for the birth rates have been declining. I have been in discussions in Europe, and the main reason they have welcomed the immigrants is that their birth rate has declined, and their social programs are collapsing. By allowing the immigrants into Europe, the true objective was to increase the workforce in hopes of sustaining the Socialist system and retirement plans that are crumbling.
Gates has won the day. He is having all of these environmentalists taking grants from his foundation to put out studies to support his position of reducing the population.

Putin reveals what he thought about Lenin’s entire Communist movement, making it clear that Lenin was not a statesman but just a Bolshevik Revolutionary.
The importance of this answer by Putin reveals how he thinks of Ukraine. Lenin tried to standardize all humans into this cookie-cutter idea and failed. Putin is revealing his disagreement with the Great Reset, which is following the same mistake of Lenin. He is far more intelligent than the Western press portrays him.
We know the Democrats have morphed into the ‘Socialist Democratic Party.’ The word socialism can be considered a euphemism for Marxism. Senator Sanders may say he’s peddling e a soft form of socialism, but we know he honeymooned in Moscow and praised Castro as well as the Sandinistas. Bernie is a Marxist.
So is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Very few of the Democrat socialists believe in ‘America First.’ Instead, they’re all on the same page. They’re using climate change as a slippery slope that leads to communism. Like the Bolsheviks, they do not want a competing party. That’s why the violence committed by the Marxist Black Lives Matter group and Antifa is easily forgiven by the Democrats, yet the protest at the capitol building by Trump supporters is compared to the worst insurrection since the Civil War. The Democrats want to stay in power permanently and like the Bolsheviks, they will lie, cheat, murder, destroy American culture, and commit mayhem to do it.
The Republicans In Name Only or “RINOs” are really Democrats and globalists themselves. The Bushes, the McCains, the Cheneys have all been praised by the Democrats as ‘good’ Republicans. These neocons panicked and betrayed their own party when a real Republican and America First president was elected. Mitt Romney in particular showed his true Marxist colors and fought Trump at every turn. Romney is a traitor.
Perhaps the worst turncoat is Joe Biden. Good ol’ lunch bucket Joe pretended he was a traditional Democrat fighting for the middle class and blue collar types. Yet there’s something fishy about Joe. It’s obvious now that he’s swallowed the Green New Deal and Marxism hook line and sinker. He’d probably swallow Karl Marx’s fishing pole if he could. He has informed us that our Constitution isn’t absolute and that government is ‘We The People,’ not the citizens. Instead of unifying the country he has divided it further. He continues to denounceTrump supporters as terrorists and ‘white supremacists’ as he fails to prosecute Antifa members for burning down cities.
Biden and the Democrats love the communist party system in China. They want to suppress free speech and take our guns—just like in China. They want medical tyranny, tracking, spying, and granular control over all Americans—just like in in China.
Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. China Joe is continuing the transformation. It means more power to the government and less freedom for the people. The transformation is about making us a carbon copy of Communist China—with the Marxist Democrats as the ruling party.

Bill and Melinda Gates are filing for divorce. The inside scoop is she has not been happy with his direction of changing the world and all the hate mail directed at them. It was really just a question of time. What Bill Gates has set out to force the world to ZERO CO2 and to reduce the population has gradually eaten away at Melinda. Some suggest that she has an inner conscious about humanity which is absent from Bill. This will be a most interesting DIVORCE for it seems to actually fit with our models.
I published this forecast on Gates back on May 8, 2020. I warned back then that this was the peak of his eighth 8.6-year wave which hit April 28th, 2020. Gates’ and Schwab’s attempt to take over the world using scare tactics is a very dangerous proposition. I warned that the “ideal peak in his power may have taken place on April 28th and that is good news for us. If this proves correct, he should be in for a fall in prestige and power going into 2024.”
His divorce is actually coming right on target. It is actually a welcome piece of news that his wife is divorcing him. It pretty much confirms that the peak in his power was indeed April 2020 when he launched this Great Reset. Perhaps all the hatred being poured out against Gates has finally made Melinda see the real person that he is – a very dangerous individual. The peak of his 8.6-year personal cycle also marked 26 years of his marriage.
Hallelujah – the Self-Annoited Health Czar of the World has reached his peak!

It’s one thing to steal an election, create a border crisis(when there was none) and then orchestrate an alleged attack on the Capitol, thus creating the perfect recipe for another attempt at impeachment.
But with complications now surfacing with these vaccines(and follow on boosters, which by design are to ensure a continuous feed of data into Big Tech), it appears the Lockdown states are now confronted with a serious dilemma: how to explain the drop in Covid cases and deaths in the non-Lockdown states, many of which have dropped the mask mandates. These same Lockdown states, which are pushing the vaccine, are seeing no relief, populations fleeing, and more coercive policies possibly being put into place.
This brings us to Biden’s threat yesterday stating there will be no 4th of July celebrations if not enough people sign up for the vaccine! So, what is not mandated now becomes a threat of retaliation. Against everyone. Not just the vaxxers.
Is there any doubt Biden wants to shut down the economy again, following the lead of Europe? He is trapped by the promise of the vaccine with the reopening. But Europe can’t(or won’t) with problems surrounding vaccine safety and availability. And Europe’s success in the lockdown hinges on its practice in the US.
Marty, you mentioned something happening late summer. This seems right. Perhaps it is renewed crisis overseas, perhaps vaccine fatigue setting in, perhaps resistance building nationwide against wearing masks. It may even be more racial strife…we don’t know…Whatever the cause(s), it seems to me we are getting closer to some inflection point, people beginning to fight back, government sense they are losing the PR battle(Fauci…overexposed, mendacious, a serial liar)….and perhaps major problems surfacing with the vaccines…deaths, complications, which work against the architects of this scam. The tease of reopening foreign travel looks fleeting….people are staying domestic… which means people moving around…and nothing the government can do about it…..looks to me like this idiot(B) will declare some kind of national emergency…watch!
REPLY: August is, for some reason, a period when war and civil unrest rise. It often marks major highs in markets around Labor Day, like September 3, 1929, and so many others. This is not about health; it is all about climate change. The Panic Cycles we see and the chaos between August-September may very well be domestic civil unrest, most likely starting in Europe. Literally, thousands of people are contracting COVID after being vaccinated, and some are still dying. The CDC admits over 70 people have died after being vaccinated by COVID.
The politicians have used this virus for political gains to shut down the economy and reduce CO2. The WEF has been boasting that the lockdowns are working in saving the planet. Meanwhile, they are destroying civilization, and the future people thought they were entitled to. This will come to a head, and perhaps the August-September timeframe will be the time of reckoning.

When the oligarchs assassinated Caesar and Cicero put out a never-ending onslaught against Gaius Julius Caesar (100-44 BC), Brutus (85-32 BC) issued a coin promoting that he killed Caesar on the Ides of March for the people. This was an early propaganda coin. However, in fact, the people supported Caesar against the oligarchy.
The Senate had to flee Rome because the people did not support them. Their champion was Caesar – not Cicero and Brutus. As for Brutus, Suetonius (Divus Augustus, 13) says that his head was sent to Rome to be thrown at the feet of Caesar’s statue.
Perhaps the greatest of all fake news reporters was none other than Cicero (104-43 BC). He was an Optimat (Oligarch) and thus was against Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) who was a member of the Populares (for the People) rather than the Oligarchs. The leader of the Optimates was none other than Cato. It was Plutarch who reported that when a friend of Cicero remarked that the constellation of Lybra was due to rise the next day, Cicero snapped – “Yes, by edict.”
This is merely an example that the Optimates were constantly complaining about every reform Caesar would make including the calendar which they would bribe the priest to delay elections. Because of the fake news of Cicero, even Shakespeare bought into it and painted Julius Caesar as a ruthless dictator. However, when Caesar crossed the Rubicon, the cities all cheered and opened their gates. The Optimates had no support of the people for they were exploiting the Republic since they were the Oligarchs. It was Cato who instigated the Civil War.
Cicero paid not just with his life, but they cut off his hands and nailed them with his head on the Rostra in the Forum Romanum according to the tradition. According to Cassius Dio, Marc Antony’s wife Fulvia took Cicero’s head, pulled out his tongue, and jabbed it repeatedly with her hairpin in an act of final revenge against Cicero’s power of speech.
Every ruthless government in history has used the media for propaganda. This has been an ancient practice. Following the death of Nero, that was the end of the Julio-Claudian line. People jumped for joy and may believe that the Republic would then be restored. This is also when the Jews rebelled and thought they could now move to be independent and exist the Roman Empire. After a civil war, the military general Vespasian (69-79 AD) rose to power defeating his rivals. The Romans used the reverse side of the coins as newspapers announcing various events and victories. Vespasian had to crush the Jews or risk that other previous conquered lands might try the same solution of rebellion. The coinage of Vespasian marked the defeat of Judea and he proudly announced – “CAPTIA” proclaiming their defeat as a warning to all other provinces.
In October 1943, French citizens awoke to find the streets of Paris were littered with the United States $1 Silver Certificates of 1935. The French were overjoyed believing that Americans from the land where the streets were paved in gold, had showered them with dollar bills following the defeat of the German occupation forces. However, upon close examination, not only did all the bills have the same serial number Y91033384A, but they unfolded, and inside was propaganda.
The front and the back of the folded leaflet were excellent reproductions of the genuine one-dollar bills. Inside was a vicious attack upon the United States and Judaism. The propaganda read:
This dollar is valid only if signed Morgenthau. The Minister of the United States Treasury is the Jew Morgenthau Junior, allied to the big sharks of international finance. All the Jewish symbols appear on this dollar: the Eagle of Israel, the Triangle, the Eye of Jehovah and the thirteen letters of the device, stars of the halo, arrows, olive branches and steps of the unfinished pyramid. This money is certainly Jewish! This dollar has paid for the Jewish war. The only message that the Anglo-Americans are able to address to us is: Will this dollar be enough to compensate us for the sorrows caused by the Jewish war? Money has no smell … but the Jew has one!”
Propaganda has been a powerful tool that has torn society apart and always seeks to divide and conquer.
This is the danger that mainstream media now threatens our very future. They are shameless and never reflect that what they are doing leads only to one conclusion. Why is CNN, the New York Times, and The Washington Post, the leaders of this cabal, joined by ABC, CBS, and NBC, acting in such a treasonous manner? What is the end objective? Sterilized genocide to save the planet? Chelsea Clinton, who Hillary is grooming for 2024, is now openly calling on Facebook to SILENCE Tucker Carlson. Such a move shows a complete disregard for the First Amendment and even Bill Gates advocating silencing all his critics — the “crazies” he calls them. Anyone who advocates silencing their opposition is a traitor to everything the American dream and Constitution stood for and generations were asked to lay down their lives to protect. These people have no place in a democratic society.
Free speech protected by the First Amendment. This means that I must respect that even Communists have a right to speak, for if I do not defend their right to speak, then I myself have no right to speak. Silencing the opposition is ruthless tyranny. Just look at history. It warns us of people like Chelsea Clinton and Bill Gates.
