💛 5-Point Update (Let's Get to the Heart of the Issue)
Today I have a great issue that is focused on the core issues we are dealing with in today's world.
“There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see.”
Leonardo da Vinci
Hi from Glenn!
I love the above quote from Mr. da Vinci. This newsletter is for truth seekers, people who are aware that the media and politicians are trying desperately hard to manipulate and control us. But the harder they try to censor free speech, warp science and force us to believe them, the more we distrust them.
I heard another good quote the other day. It went something like this, “The opposite of divine love is power. But while power opposes love, divine love is not opposed to anything, it just is, like sunlight shining from the Sun.”
The power seekers in the world don’t understand this. They don’t understand that they can’t force us to trust them or believe them. Trust is earned, and it’s earned by being trustworthy.
I hope you enjoy today’s newsletter. Please forward it to all of your friends and family!
Here are the five points I think you will like today...
💸 FIRST, let’s get to the heart of the problem.
You’ve heard the debate about the minimum wage, right? People on the Left argue for a high minimum wage while people on the Right say that it should be market driven. Both of these perspectives miss the point.
Think about this…
In 1964, the minimum wage was five quarters.
In 2021, the minimum wage is $7.25.
What is the comparative value of these wages? This is actually simple to calculate because the five quarters in 1964 were 90% silver. If you melt those five quarters down today they are worth $20.62.
The minimum wage in 1964 was significantly higher than it is today. The difference is that in the 60’s we had sound money. Today we don’t.
This issue is at the heart of many of today’s problems.
Another example from the bible.
The Old Testament states that in 600 BC, during the rein of King Nebuchadnezzar’s, one ounce of gold could buy 350 loaves of bread. Today, the price of gold is $1,770, while a loaf of bread is about $5. $1,716 ÷ $5 = 354 loaves.
Talk about price stability! Gold holds the same value today as it did 2,620 years ago.
The point is…
We don’t have a minimum wage problem, we have a problem with our currency losing value.
We don’t have a problem with increasing health care costs, we have a problem with our currency losing value.
We don’t have a problem with increasing prices, we have a problem with our currency losing value.
The reason so many people are struggling to pay their bills and survive is that our currency keeps losing value.
This loss of value in the dollar is called inflation.
You will hear countless reasons for today’s high inflation. Politicians and talking heads on CNBC will talk about repos and reverse repos, the velocity of money, that demand is increasing, or that it’s the fault of the free market.
These reasons are false.
They are deflecting your attention away from the real problem; the Federal Reserve and the government.
There is only one source of rising prices, and that is excessive currency creation. Every dollar they create dilutes the value of all the other dollars, including the ones in your pocket. And they are creating trillions of dollars out of thin air. Devaluation takes a while to filter through the system, but it certainly happens.
Inflation is an invisible tax. It’s invisible because people don’t see it happening and they don’t understand the cause.
Inflation is not actually rising prices, but rather it’s the falling purchasing power of the dollar.
The purchasing power of the dollar will continue to decline. This means that the dollar in your pocket has more purchasing power now than it will ever have in the future.
Politicians and the Federal Reserve have created this problem, but they will never admit it.
Instead, they will set up false arguments, such as the argument about minimum wage…
The Left argues that the Right is heartless and that corporations are evil, greedy things that must be controlled so they pay workers a living wage. The Right argues that higher prices hurt small businesses and that the market needs to set the minimum wage.
Both arguments totally ignore the real problem. Both arguments polarize people and make one side hate the other, which benefits the politicians. Both sides promise that they will fix the problem, but very few politicians have any idea what the real cause is.
No politician will tell you that the real issue behind the minimum wage, health care, and rising prices is that the government has fundamentally corrupted our currency.
And the American public doesn’t know the difference because we don’t understand the truth about money.
The Importance of Sound Money.
For thousands of years you can trace the rise and fall of civilizations to whether they have sound money. The result is always the same, as is the reason.
Politicians spend more than they have in order to fund wars and social programs that will help them get elected. They then tax as much as they can, and when they have taxed people as much as people will allow, they then turn to debasing the currency.
Politicians and central bankers hate gold and silver because it forces them to be disciplined with their money.
This is why the US Constitution states that the only legal form of tender in the USA is gold and silver.
The Federal Reserve and Nixon’s act to take us off of the gold standard was fundamentally illegal and immoral, but we were forced to do it because the government had already corrupted our dollar. Since then, the Fed has created so much currency that, unless something drastic changes in US Policy, the dollar is doomed.
So what can you do?
FIRST, I suggest that you understand money better. Watch the Hidden Secrets of Money video series by Mike Maloney. Also listen to Ron Paul, Tom Woods, Peter Schiff and other Austrian Economists (“Austrian” is an economic school of thought that is much more accurate than Keynesian economics, which is what 99% of economists learn).
SECOND, don’t just learn about the right way to think about money, teach it! Share it with others. Give children you know the Tuttle Twins books, which is a great introduction to the principles of money and liberty.
THIRD, take precautions to protect yourself. Your US Dollars will purchase more today than they will ever purchase in the future, so stock up on things you will need in the future, especially non perishable items. Also, buy as much food as you can without it spoiling.
FOURTH, take precautions with your money. Think about ways you can be less exposed to the devaluing dollar. Maybe think about gold and silver (this is not a recommendation) and if you do, look at overseas storage - because the biggest thief that has ever existed throughout time is the government.
FIFTH, our path forward as a nation must be to return to the Constitution. We must refocus on the ideas of individual liberty, self responsibility, peace, property and justice.
💛 SECOND, you can make a difference!
IF YOU ARE sick of the government encroaching on your freedoms, and…
IF YOU BELIEVE that the masks don’t do anything to protect people against this virus, and…
IF YOU WANT life to get back to normal…
There is something you can do to make a difference.
Stop wearing masks.
Remember this saying, “You comply because you want things to get back to normal, but things don’t get back to normal because you comply.”
If you believe masks work and they actually protect people, then go ahead and keep wearing them. You are free to choose, as am I.
But if you don’t believe they help, stop.
We have a mask mandate in Lincoln, but I refuse to wear them. I know it can be uncomfortable to be the odd man or woman out, but don’t we tell children all the time not to give in to peer pressure? You have to stand up for what you believe, and by doing so you give courage to other people who also don’t want to give up their freedoms.
💉 THIRD, are you a science denier?
What I have found is that people who say they follow the science, don’t. Instead they follow the authorities who tell them what the science says, which is totally different and is irresponsible.
Natural immunity offers superior protection against the virus than the vaccine.
Not only is this common sense, but it’s a fact proven by science.
Here are a few studies that show this to be true (thank you for this data Justin).
“Natural immunity confers longer-lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SCoV2, compared to vaccine-induced immunity.” (study)
Harvard study of Israeli data found vaxxed were 27 times more likely to get symptomatic COVID infection than those w/ natural immunity. The risk of a vaccine-breakthrough case was 13-times higher for Delta variant, and the risk of hospitalization 8x higher. (study)
“Israelis who had an infection were more protected against the Delta coronavirus variant than those who had an already highly effective COVID-19 vaccine.” (study)
Natural immunity conveys much more innate immunity, while the vaccine mainly stimulates adaptive immunity. (source)
French researchers found "No neutralization escape could be feared concerning the two variants of concern [Alpha and Beta]" of those previously infected. (study)
A meta-analysis & review of natural immunity looked at 54 studies, from 18 countries, w/records from more than 12M individuals, followed up to 8 months- & those researchers found an average reinfection rate for COVID-recovered patients of just 0.2%. (source)
NEJM Study following 12,541 UK healthcare workers for COVID19 re-infection over 31 weeks found that Natural immunity held up well over the 6 months of the study, with only two cases of asymptomatic reinfections observed. (source)
Study of 1.4k previously infected Cleveland Clinic health care workers found not a single one was re-infected 10 months into pandemic, despite some of these individuals being around COVID-positive patients more than regular population. (source)
Those "who recover [even] from mild COVID19 have bone-marrow cells that churn out antibodies for decades." Prior infection creates memory B cells that "patrol blood for reinfection, while bone marrow plasma trickle out antibodies for decades" (source)
Antibodies wane slower among those with prior infection. "In vaccinated subjects, antibody titers decreased by up to 40% each subsequent month while in convalescents they decreased by less than 5% per month." (source)
"memory antibodies selected by natural infection have greater potency & breadth than antibodies elicited by vax" (source)
So why don’t the global authorities acknowledge the effectiveness of natural immunity and instead put all of their energy into focusing on giving people the vaccine?
Because it’s not about health. It’s about control.
Stop watching CNN and the other propaganda news stations and get the real truth from trusted, alternative news sources.

Glenn, I love your current issue. Wonder why I didn't get it as an e-newsletter? We were away for the holidays, but I did not see it come in. Thanks for writing your newsletters Elizabeth Davis
I think the things you see are obvious. I also look at what will happen if we continue to neglect the Earth and rely on technology to conquer it instead of cooperating with it. I also see risk, looking internationally, at a possible "act of war" type EMP or general hacking of computers to inactivate things like the electric grid. There are also unpredictable natural events of such kinds, too. It is important to trust in God, no matter what happens, but that does not mean that we just sit down without thinking or acting. Wish I were closer to you; would love to once in a while just talk with you. Elizabeth
