📱👁️5-Point Update! (Privacy, money, the vaccine, Snowden and funny accents)
You're going to love today's newsletter!
“Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify.”
Henry David Thoreau
Hi from Glenn!
I hope you’re getting ready for a wonderful week! The birds are chirping. The sun is shining. What else do you want?
Here are the five points I think you will like today...
📱👁️ FIRST, we are having great success with the Privacy Action Plan. If you don’t know, after years of teaching people to get their online privacy figured out, I realized that the biggest obstacle to getting private is that people get overwhelmed with the number of things you need to do.
So, when you sign up for the Privacy Action Plan, you will receive a couple emails each week with bite-sized actions for you to take. Instead of focusing on the big picture and how overwhelming it feels, just focus on the task at hand and before you know it, you’ll have your privacy figured out.
People are loving it. So, for this reason, I am launching the Privacy Action Plan as an actual online course. I’m doing this because it’s easier to promote it as a stand alone online course. But just to be clear, everyone who is a premium member to this newsletter will automatically be enrolled in the Privacy Action Plan for free.
Later today I will send you an email that promotes the Privacy Action Plan, and if you know anyone who would benefit from the course, please forward my letter on to them.
💵💰 SECOND, some people don’t like it when I write about money stuff. Like it or not though, money is important. It’s very important to understand how to protect your wealth, no matter how much or little you have. With this in mind, I want to share a few facts, and a few opinions…
FACT: The banking rules have changed, and hardly anyone knows it. Now, if you deposit money in a bank, that money is not yours anymore. Rather, it belongs to the bank and you are just a creditor to the bank. This is why they can deny your request to withdraw funds out of your account.
FACT: Another law that has quietly changed is that banks don’t have ANY reserve requirements anymore. It used to be that banks were required to have at least 10% of customer deposits in cash so they could give people their money back if they want to take “their” money out. Now banks don’t have to have any cash reserves.
FACT: There are no Federal laws that protect what you keep in safe deposit boxes. Whatever you store in a safe deposit box is not Federally insured. The bank may have insurance on it, but don’t assume that it does, nor would I trust what they say anyway.
OPINION: I don’t trust any financial news I hear. I believe that 95% of financial news is planted fake news designed to get the masses to act in a certain way, and there is a person, bank or hedge fund that is using this fake news to generate profits for themselves. I only trust individual analysts that I have vetted, who believe in a similar worldview to me, and whom I’ve listened to countless times. I listen to a lot of different such analysts and I don’t automatically agree with anything they say.
OPINION: Most “economists” have no idea what they are talking about. They live with their heads in spreadsheets, and they believe that the amount of currency the Federal Reserve prints has nothing to do with the value of the dollar. I only trust Austrian Economists, such as Peter Schiff and Alasdair Macleod. I encourage you to listen to them.
🦠💉 THIRD, as you know, the new vaccine(s) are out now. I’m not going to give you any advice on whether you should get it or not, but I am going to share some facts and opinions. (Note: any fact I provide also has a link to the source of my information.)
FACT: Now they are pushing young children to get the vaccine, but young people have a MUCH, MUCH lower risk from COVID than older people. Here is the chart from the Massachusetts Department of Health that shows death rate by age. Have a look at how low the risk is for people under the age of 50, or even 60.
FACT: The drug companies are exempt from liability if something goes wrong with the vaccine.
FACT: Pfizer’s vaccine is already the second-highest revenue-generating drug in the world.
OPINION: It will become the highest revenue generating drug, and soon you will hear that they want to make the vaccines recommended annually, like they do with the flu. Wait for it…
FACT: The drug companies that created the opioid epidemic, which killed more people than COVID, are the people we are trusting to create the vaccines for COVID.
OPINION: You do what you want regarding the vaccine, but there is no way that I am putting this experimental drug into my system. In my opinion, it hasn’t been tested enough, I don’t trust the people involved, and I think the entire illness is a fear-mongering distraction campaign that is designed to steal our freedoms.
🖥📱 FOURTH, here is a very interesting video from Edward Snowden.
😂 🤣 FIFTH, I’m not a huge fan of SNL, but I saw this skit the other day and it’s really funny.

I don’t work for anyone else, so the only money I make is from people who become premium subscribers. I think it’s important to support independent voices who are actual truth seekers, because this is a rare thing in our world today.

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. I believe that 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.
