🚰🤮 5-Point Update!
(Boil Notice in Houston, Privacy, Let's come together, The importance of free speech and more!)
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.”
Francis of Assisi
Hi from Glenn!
I hope you are having a fantastic day!
Here are the five points I think you will like today...
🚰🤮 FIRST, I want to talk about the water contamination in Houston. Houston is currently under a boil notice, which means that people must boil the water before they drink it. Here is a quick video that I created a while ago to teach people about boil notices.
Please note that if you use a water distiller for your everyday water needs (which you should), you never have to worry about a boil notice. I recommend this water distiller.
Do you have any questions about water?
Do you know someone who needs to know this info? Please share this newsletter with them.
💻🛡 SECOND, if you haven’t heard, my Privacy Action Plan has started. Getting your online privacy ducks in a row involves so many things that for most people it’s simply overwhelming. So the Privacy Action Plan takes every little thing that you need to do and breaks them down into bite-sized actions for you to take.
Over the next two or three months, participants will receive two or three emails per week with little actions for you to take. Before you know it, you will be much more secure and private.
I will also hold periodic Live Q&A Webinars to answer any questions you have along the way. As I said, we started earlier this week and we have received a lot of positive feedback already.
If you need to know WHY you need to get private, watch this short video.
This Privacy Action Plan is made available exclusively to my premium members.
🧠🧼 THIRD, one of my goals with this newsletter is to try to build a bridge between people in the USA. We are more divided than we’ve ever been. I think the starting point for coming back together is to ask the question, “Can we agree that the vast majority of people in the USA are good people?”
This has to be the starting point. In order to come together, we need to see each other as real people who have families and contribute to society.
The vast majority of Americans are good people. I hope you don’t fall for the propaganda that the media is currently pushing that a large number of Conservatives are white racists.
This is absolutely false, it’s total manipulation, and it’s a very dangerous thing that the media is trying to do.
Yes, of course there are some people who are racists, but this is a tiny, tiny fraction of the population. I know many people, on both the left and the right, and I don’t know any racists.
The media is trying to divide us. They want division. They want chaos, because the media gains power when people are divided and scared. The media is, in fact, trying to incite violence between Americans.
I ask you to really ask yourself whether you started to believe this propaganda. If you did, you have been manipulated. Get outside of your echo chamber and get to know people with differing opinions. Push back on this narrative. I suggest that you start to listen to Glenn Beck and Libertarians such as Tom Woods or Ron Paul.
At the core, the vast majority of us are good people who want the same thing.
I urge you to see the good in people, and by doing so you bring out the best in them.
📜🇺🇸 FOURTH, the most important freedom we have is free speech. And it is getting torn away from us, and the very disturbing thing to me is that most people don’t know about the censorship, they don’t care about it, or they are even cheering it on. Free speech is closely related to privacy, and it’s essential for our Republic, and for human rights. Please watch this short video.
Please tell me whether this is something that concerns you. How can we get people to wake up and see the importance of not censoring people? Not cancelling people? The fact that “speech you hate” is not the same as “hate speech”? How can we build this bridge?
🥩🎻 FIFTH, I found this show by the late, great Anthony Bourdain called Raw Craft, that I think you will enjoy. In this show, he travels around finding people who still handcraft their products with artisanal love. Then Anthony weaves it together with his poetic production skills.
The first one is with a lady who hand crafts guitars.
And this next one is with a couple who handcraft cast-iron skillets.
I’d love to know if you like these videos.

PURCHASE GOLD. The US Dollar is going to crash, taking down many people's wealth and ability to survive. To protect your wealth you should own gold and silver. But what should you buy and where should you store it? I recommend US gold and silver bullion. Don't let anyone sell you collectible coins or ETFs. At least some of your gold and silver should be stored overseas outside of the banking system so it's not at risk of being stolen by thieves or the government. I recommend GoldMoney. Goldmoney is the easiest way to purchase physical gold and silver bullion online and store it in a Brink's controlled storage facility outside the banking system. They safeguard over $2 billion of assets for clients in 150 countries.
INVESTMENT GRADE JEWELRY. I'm very excited to tell you about a new company that I've discovered that is actually a sister company to GoldMoney; it's called Menē, and it's an investment jewelry company. What does this mean? 99%+ of jewelry sold in the USA is 14 or 18 carat gold, but investment jewelry is 24 carat! The difference is really astounding! It's beautiful, it's valuable and it's often less expensive than other jewelry. The lead designer is Diana W. Picasso (the granddaughter of Pablo Picasso). See the video I created about MENE here, or go directly to their website: Mene.com
SECURE EMAIL. Looking for a secure email solution? ProtonMailis the best secure email solution on the market. It's end-to-end encrypted, open-source, audited and based in Switzerland. Learn more here. P.S. Proton also has one of the best and most secure VPN serviceson the market.
HOMESCHOOLING. When it comes to teaching your children about the enduring principles of freedom, many parents don't know where to start. The Tuttle Twins book series helps you introduce these ideas to your children and have meaningful family discussions about them. I have purchased all of the Tuttle Twin books myself, I love them and I recommend them to you.
