Since Nov 30, 2004
(and the point of this is that if you decide to 'teach the GOP a lesson' by allowing Democrats to be elected, it will be too late to fight - once they have the laws in place, it's game over)
They have HUGE advantages over our side. For most people on our side, the ability to even comprehend who these people are simply doesn’t exist. I suspect that’s even the case here. The second advantage is that they take advantage of the freedoms we allow, including freedom of speech and the press. But once they take over, that all gets shut down.
That’s why we USED TO infiltrate these groups, figure out their plans, and stop them early (as in FBI Director Hoover). Once we stopped doing it, it was just a matter of time before they had all the pieces in place to take down the country, and now they’re at that point - and they’re in far better shape to do that than even they ever imagined.
For example, if someone in Texas, on our side (even our governor), wants to ‘actively oppose’ what’s coming, people in DC (not even in Texas), can simply do the following:
1. Empty their bank accounts
2. Place liens on their properties
3. Cancel their credit cards
4. Cancel their passports
5. Put them on the No-Fly List
6. Cancel electricity, phone, and Internet service
7. Cancel postal service or at least package delivery
8. Cancel their Social Security and Medicare*
9. Disable their cars*
*Maybe not done yet, but don’t worry, they’re coming
So, either people comply as directed, as the country collapses economically and crime runs wild, or their lives are destroyed directly by our new masters. And the thing is, just who are they? Who is it that just did the above. Take #1. You go to your ATM and are told "Funds not Available". So you log in to your bank and you get a message "Persuant to Court Order 2022-3759 of DC Federal District Court, the funds in this account are locked". Can you even find out who did this to you? Probably not, it's probably sealed at the courthouse.
Our side will comply. Sad, but true.
Given that, I can’t see a reason for staying here, and I’m not going to do so. If I’m going to be forced to live under Socialism, which will be the case anywhere in the world, it will under a Socialist government that doesn’t also hate me and feel the need to re-educate me and make me repent for the sins they imagine I committed.
And don’t forget, the people in South Africa who left early were able to use their wealth and the relative open doors of other countries (at the time) to find a nice place to live out their lives. Those who waited (while their currency and country collapsed) got less and less, and now most there are trapped.
A bit on you off-the-grid types with your battery-backed up solar power sources. Are you really 'off-the-grid', or are you off-the-grid as long as you're permitted to operate. For example, as we all know, Tesla cars are connected to the Internet, and if Tesla wants to disable your car, most likely some malnourished vegetarian could send a few keystrokes and quickly take it down. Can they do that with your inverter (the part of a solar/battery system required to provide AC power) in their PowerWall setup? Actually I don't know...but I'd be surprised if that were not the case. So be sure to understand those systems, if you're able to understand them, then try figuring out a way to isolate them from the web (likely possible, but beyond what I know).
WHY EVEN DEMOCRATS SHOULD SUPPORT CLEAN ELECTIONS
(now this is a brilliant point)
Although not obvious, yet, rank-and-file Democrat voters are about to learn a HUGE LESSON that unfortunate people around the world have learned the hard way for hundreds of years: The lesson being that once you enable leaders that have NO FEAR of opposition, either from their political 'enemies', or from their political friends (the ones who helped them get into voters, in the case of the United States, that would be people who live an otherwise conservative lifestyle, but voted for Biden over Trump). In other words, with their cheating apparatus in place, not only does Shumer, Pelosi, and AOC no longer have to worry about Republicans, they no longer have to worry about Democrats even trying to (at least somewhat) answer to their voters. So, now, a VERY SMALL minority fully controls all levels of government and they have no interest in either the conservative values of Republicans, or even the conservative values of 2/3's of their (Democrat) voters. They answer ONLY to themselves, and very soon we'll be seeing the results of what just happened.
As people ask the simple question of how a country which supports Socialism at 36% can steal an election, they'll figure out just how INGENIOUS the Democrats were. First, they consolidated where they were strongest, which was in our cities, and then, as populations overall grew, people in those counties (which contained those cities) moved out and were replaced by 'city-types'. At that point, they controlled elections in those jurisdictions...and could cheat to the extent that they could get away with it, thereby impacting elections at the state level (and there was a lot of room to cheat, given turnout levels being relatively low). With their cheating, they then flipped states, which flipped the White House. To keep the Republicans in check, they created a credible threat of violence by rioting before the election (along with huge numbers of death threats against key people and their families)...this was more than the Republicans, or their judges, signed up for, so they 'complied'. Then it was just a matter of striking...and they struck in 2020.
RIP, USA - I very much enjoyed my rather long run in your country, and will always appreciate the great time I had. But now it's on to another country, one without labor camps and other re-educational efforts taking place.
KETO, LOW CARB, and DIABETES
If the last 2.4 million years was turned into 24 hours of human existence...
We have eaten meat for the last 24 hours
We have eaten wheat/grains for the last 6 minutes
We have eaten processed food for the last 4 seconds
I think its easy to see where the real problem is.
(Aug 7, 2019) We are now entering the MOST EPIC BATTLE in history regarding what is healthy food, and what is not healthy.
And so to start. Consider these three factoids from the recent past. This is all OFFICIAL RELEASES from CREDIBLE SOURCES (as in the US Government, or leading health organizations):
1) Eggs, including yolks, are no longer unhealthy to eat. The specific advice to minimize consumption of eggs is gone, completely. This is per the US Government and the bad-boy listing of eggs seems to have evaporated in 2005.
2) The REQUIREMENT to limit saturated fats (fats from red meat, including steak, butter, etc.) to no more than 10% of calories has been very quietly eliminated and instead is now only a recommendation. This was done as a FOOTNOTE in the 2015 US Government Dietary Guidelines (page 15 of 144 pages). In the footnote it is noted that if people really do limit saturated fats down to 10%, they will be replaced by something, which is likely worse. This type of footnote DOES NOT EXIST in prior versions of this document. The significance of this cannot be understated, it was not an accident that they made the change and expect it to soon be amplified and brought further forward.
3) The American Diabetes Association, early this year (2019), stated that 'some people' are known to have positive effects on their diabetic condition by minimizing or effectively eliminating Carbohydrates, from their diets. This is HUGE, as I will explain later.
Having listed the above from 'credible sources', on this site, Free Republic, there are many people (at least half a dozen, probably many more) who have had incredibly good results by going off carbs (as in greatly reducing or eliminating Insulin, and even getting off all diabetic drugs). These are America-loving people, many retired, and I suspect virtually no one with anything to gain by falsely claiming these results. Sure, we don't know the real names or histories of these people here, but unless someone can convince me they have a motivation to flat-out lie, I believe them, even more than I believe my own siblings in this area.
What makes this an 'epic battle' are the entrenched interests. You have the obvious ones, including Big Pharma (selling diabetes drugs to millions of people), Big Carb (think Frosted Flakes, for starters, but as someone explained here, go to the front of supermarket and then go to the back - everything in between is Big Carb), but also the much less obvious ones (such Big Food spending billions developing good-tasting carb-loaded fake hamburger patties). These people/orgs will NOT go down without a huge fight, obviously. There are millions of people with jobs at risk, and many, many, people with multi-million dollar lifestyles at risk. They will fight, and fight to the death (maybe, actually). Think cigarettes, and if you can remember, about 30 years ago, the execs were all seated next to each other, in front of a Congressional Committee and asked if cigarette smoking causes cancer. To a person, they said NO (almost certainly due to their legal advice). It was game over for them...they didn't have a chance either way.
Not mentioned above is what may end up being the Biggest Player of all - THE LEFT. These are the people who want to get us off meat (think AOC), because they're convinced that the only way to clean up the planet is to stop people from eating meat. But look again at my 'official' examples. Eggs are fine, eating red meat, fat included, is fine, and eliminating carbs, which RULES OUT going off meat, is not only good, but actually healthy. There literally is no room for compromise. The battle lines are drawn, and one side will prevail, at the expense of the other side.
So now you have the Order of Battle drawn out. One side wants to simply live out our lives as healthy and as long as possible, the other side wants to take it all away. Your local Senator my be a RINO, and you may well want to send a message, but ask yourself who is more likely to be on your side here, a RINO, or someone owned by AOC? I only say this because in 10 years Supermarkets will have one or the other, but not both. You will either have HEALTHY FOOD (red meat, etc.), or food that will kill you (Carbs, even if packaged as healthy). You decide which side you're on.
So now to history. Two things of note happened around 1961 (give or take a few years): (1) Dr. Ancel Keyes determined from a now largely discredited study that eating Saturated Fats made one both fat and sick, prone to heart disease and other ailments. (2) Dr. Roselyn Yalow (a friend of my mom's, by the way), along with Dr. Berson (her partner) developed a method to measure concentrations of hormones, particularly Insulin, in human blood - something she won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for, in 1977 (Insulin was well known by then and even being used to treat diabetes, but measuring it in human blood, along with what happened to the concentration response based on types of food eaten, was not possible, until then). This was so ground-breaking, that they had to come up with new units of measurements for her (these concentrations are that super-low). Dr. Yalow died in 2011, but the work she did would lead to the recent and now accelerating efforts of discrediting of Dr. Keys, who was simply an asshole, viciously resisting any peer criticism while he was alive.
Here is a historical write-up that I just came across today. Thankfully Keys is dead, but reversing what he ingrained into the medical community, now protected by the hard-left (animal rights types and now climate change types) is like turning an ocean-liner. It will be slow and we simply have to keep at it, until the truth prevails.
The major takeaway from the above is the following quote: "Unfortunately, when faced with potential reason to change our practice behavior, most doctors behave like herd animals in that we instinctively follow the recommendation of authorities in order to avoid slaughter by predatory lawyers."
Always remember the above - if you're asked why you should be believed in lieu of your brother's personal doctor - he has to ALWAYS worry about the next lawsuit, you don't. You can tell the truth and be safe, he can't.
So here we are. Throughout my life time, and I'm sure yours, we were told that Diabetes is a 'condition' that you 'manage' into old age, until it kills you, or makes you want to be dead. There is NO OTHER OPTION - if you want near-normal (i.e., 100) blood sugar, you need to eat what you're told (i.e., lots of 'good carbs', not much in fats), take your meds, and then Insulin. If you're lucky, heart disease or stroke will take you out before you go blind or the amputations begin. Again, there was simply NO OTHER OPTION, you were condemned to this outcome, you just had bad luck. And the 'bad luck', in roughly 100 years accelerated from 0.1% of Americans to 30% of Americans (soon). Just the breaks, I guess.

For those who say "It can't get any worse", here's a typical middle/upper middle class house in South Africa, found using Google Maps - the entire country is ALL the same. Houses in South Africa are the new ghettos (coming to a country near you):
