Means…Motive…Opportunity

2021 March 29
by justrand
In investigating and prosecuting a crime the three key things authorities look for are: MeansMotiveOpportunity
On the night of February 27, 1933 someone set fire to the Reichstag building, which housed the German Parliament. A crime to be sure, but the real crime occurred the NEXT day, February 28.
For the crime of burning of Reichstag on February 27, the Means, Motive and Opportunity were simple: an accelerant & matches, anger at the Government, a way to get in after it was locked. The man eventually framed for this crime had all three…and was executed.
The crime of February 28 was more complex…and deadlier. On that day President Hindenburg and Chancellor Hitler invoked Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution. This permitted the “suspension of civil liberties in time of national emergency”. The formal “Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of the People and State” eliminated:
• Free expression of opinion
• Freedom of the press
• Right of assembly and association
• Right to privacy of postal and electronic communications
• Protection against unlawful searches and seizures
• Individual property rights
• States’ right of self-government
Ever since he wrote ‘Mein Kampf’, it was clear that Hitler had the MOTIVE to “fundamentally transform” Germany. But he didn’t have the MEANS until the apparatus of control had already wound its way through German government and society. His role as Chancellor gave him the ability to wield that control…but the setting up of it had occurred in the years and months before.
The Reichstag fire provided the OPPORTUNITY for the crime of “fundamentally transforming” Germany from the Weimar Republic to the Third Reich.
On January 6, 2021, 300 or so people broke into the U.S. Capitol. A number of crimes, mostly misdemeanors, were committed.
But as with the Reichstag fire of February 27, 1933, the REAL crimes are what has occurred since…and is accelerating.
The Democrats are using the crimes of January 6, 2021 as a pretext to strip Americans of the EXACT same list of Rights & Freedoms that Hitler in 1933. It is indeed their ‘Reichstag Fire’.
January 6, 2021 provided the OPPORTUNITY. (Along with Covid, of course.)
The MOTIVE has always been to “fundamentally transform” the United States into a Socialist “paradise”.
The MEANS is the series of abominable Bills spewing forth from Congress…starting with H.R. 1…which would usher in one Party rule. Kinda like the Nazis, eh?

    Govt got pretty much what they wanted with the Covid scare — control and ability to lock you up for non compliance. Everything after that is mere process improvements.

    1 – Pretty much, the level of compliance was terrifying, though to them quite satisfying, with minimal if any push back, which is a green light to forge forward and pile one.

    Covid is collapsing in USA, but the variants are coming that are much more contagious.

    So it seems like a race to get enough vaccinated before we get a new wave for it all to come back again. But the USA has had a lot vaccinated and some with immunity from already getting it.

    In Europe they aren’t doing much of anything so there is a possibility that they get absolutely hammered in a new wave.

    To the point of JRs post, no GOP candidate needs to look to me or those like me for support unless they stand up to protect citizens like those who were in DC against the Swamp.

    Regarding Covid, I think it’s endemic now.
    Not standard definitions but close enough:
    epidemic: spreading fast in a local area
    pandemic: spreading everywhere
    endemic: a permanent feature of our health landscape.

    Give up already. Let anyone who wants a vaccine get one. Let Pharma make more vaccines as new variants come forward. Then open the world again.

    PRP, saw an interview with Willy Woo on crypto.
    He made a few points:
    Buyers were steadily buying and often putting into cold storage.
    Analysis of the sellers suggested that the selling was to balance assets. BTC had risen so much it became too large a part of the portfolio, so profits were being taken. Due to end-of-quarter.
    He predicts price steadying and rising again starting April.

    It among many will never go away. That govt has been able to pull this charade off is due to public ignorance in the manner of disease and public health.

    I watch hedgeye every morning or i watch the replay in evening. Keith told me to sell all my gold and gold
    Miners back in sept when it went bearish trend, and when rates began to rise every day he has been encouraging to not only sell it but we should be actively shorting gold (i dont bother i prefer btc)

    If real rates go negative, im very sure hedgeye will be buying it again.

    In the meantime there is plenty of stuff that is in a bullish trend to buy.

    Not saying hedgeye should always 100% be trusted hook line and sinker, but i have always had this skepticism with these people trying to sell me on metals. In the uber long term they might be right but in the mean time i feel like they want me to buy a timeshare.

    “variants are coming that are much more contagious”

    Every first-year epidemiology student learns: over time a virus mutates. Variants become more contagious and less lethal. For the simple reason that contagious variants (duh) become more highly represented in the host population and lethal variants kill their hosts before they can spread.

    Thought experiment. Assume the following conditions:

    * Interest rates will rise over the next 24mo period. How much unknown.
    * Can acquire fixed rate capital now @4% or less.
    * Take those funds and invest in assets not denominated in USD (eg metals, BTC, etc).
    * Crystal ball suggests whatever you buy will double in price over the same 24mo period.

    Do you make the move and take the risk?

    28,

    True dat. And an observation worth heeding. Though the Hunt brothers were using the silver as collateral for the loan(s) as I recall. I on the other hand if I consider doing it would be using a line of credit against a rental and using the proceeds to buy the non-denominated assets. My equity position would still be above 80%.

    Still a bad move?

    Interview with former Pfizer exec.
    Lots of interesting thoughts. Is this a legit site? Some of the claims are pretty startling.
    https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/former-pfizer-vp-to-aflds-entirely-possible-this-will-be-used-for-massive-scale-depopulation
    a couple snips

    In the U.K., it’s abundantly clear that the authorities are bent on a course which will result in administering ‘vaccines’ to as many of the population as they can. This is madness, because even if these agents were legitimate, protection is needed only by those at notably elevated risk of death from the virus.

    all the other people, those in good health and younger than 60 years, perhaps a little older, they don’t perish from the virus. In this large group, it’s wholly unethical to administer something novel and for which the potential for unwanted effects after a few months is completely uncharacterized.
    In no other era would it be wise to do what is stated as the intention.
    Since I know this with certainty, and I know those driving it know this too, we have to enquire: What is their motive?

    (if you’ve already had the virus and recovered …) I would say the best data that exists is that immunity should be robust for at least 17 years. I think it’s entirely possible that it is lifelong.
    (he warns: do NOT get a “top off” vaccine, if you’ve already recovered from the virus and thus have antibodies)

    INTERVIEWER: My understanding of a “leaky vaccine” is that it only lessens symptoms in the vaccinated, but does not stop transmission; it therefore allows the spread of what then becomes a more deadly virus. For example, in China they deliberately use leaky Avian Flu vaccines to quickly cull flocks of chicken, because the unvaccinated die within three days.
    (Interviewer now asks if vaccines could be used to later “cull” the unvaccinated)

    Recently, we wrote privately to (European regulator), warning of blood clots, they ignored us. When we went public with our letter, we were completely censored. Days later, more than ten countries paused use of a vaccine citing blood clots.
    “I think the big money of pharma plus cash from BMGF (Bill Melinda Gates Foundation) creates the environment where saying no just isn’t an option for the regulator.

    This seems about right. I wonder what “acceptance” means though. Are they giving up or squaring their shoulders to the task ahead?

    “The strategy is becoming considerably more explicit and open than it used to be.
    That strategy is; the government and the cultural mandarins indicate what is allowed and what isn’t. The de facto monopolists that control information then ban what the government and the ruling class want banned.
    Then the government and the ruling class say “you know it’s not censorship when private companies do it” – wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    The window to avoid either slavery or a war narrows every day. The mind naturally recoils at that realization but I think a few more people reach the acceptance phase every day as well.”

    So I asked on AR15 what was up with the coins on it. The response.

    “A penny left on the top of the headstone means that the grave-site was visited. A nickel indicates that the person visiting the site trained at boot camp with the deceased veteran, while a dime means the person served with them in some capacity. A quarter left at the grave means that the person who left the coin was with the veteran when they were killed.”

    I actually HAVE gotten my “second shot”…and thus HAVE a “Shot Card” stating that.

    I will NEVER show that “Shot Card” to anyone in government or industry…EVER. (that includes the Gestapo FBI or police)

    If I am EVER stopped from going into a business of any kind because I REFUSE to show it, then I will NEVER do business with that establishment EVER again…and will organize boycotts against it.

    If EVERY American took the same pledge, then businesses would not cave to the government. Sadly, I fear most businesses WILL cave.
