We saw large-scale changes in how elections were conducted using the pandemic as an excuse. We can see the harmful results of a lot of those changes now, as they now try to sell us on it being “normal” that it may take days in some places to count elections.
If that weren’t enough, be prepared for something else that has been bandied about as a “conspiracy theory” but may now be on the immediate horizon.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York and several banking conglomerates are partnering on a 12-week “digital dollar” pilot program.
They will “explore the feasibility of an interoperable network of central bank wholesale digital money and commercial bank digital money operating on a shared multi-entity distributed ledger.”
Mastercard, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, HSBC Holdings, PNC Financial Services, TD Bank, Truist Financial, and U.S. Bancorp are among the big banks that have partnered with the New York Fed’s New York Innovation Center for the pilot program.
“Programmable US dollars may be necessary to support new business models and provide a foundation to much-needed innovations in financial settlements and infrastructure,” Tony McLaughlin, managing director for emerging payments and business development at Citigroup’s treasury and trade solutions division, said in a statement Tuesday. “Projects like this, that focus on the digitization of central bank money and individual bank deposits, could be expanded to take a broader view of the opportunity.”
Here’s Fed Chairman Jerome Powell talking about looking at central bank digital currency.
USA – in lockstep now 2023 – 2024 will see the introduction of CBDC’s.
CBDC’s won’t set you free either, they will absolutely tie you to the whims of State forever. What you buy, where you go and how you live, all determined by your ‘good’ behaviour.

So what does this mean? Right now, the government can see a lot of what you do financially. But if this went into effect regarding individual accounts, all your transactions would be an open book. It means that the government would not only be aware of everything you do, but they could also theoretically cut you off and control you. Listen as this man explains how well it can work to assess you without even having to talk to you or see you.
US – Fed announces CBDC 12 week pilot with major banks. Remember …
The IMF aren’t joking
The parameters they set for digital currency will score you, to control you! Even how much coffee you drink.
This is tyranny, not freedom. Resist

Here’s a comment from the World Economic Forum talking about how they could track your carbon footprint.
With a central bank digital currency (CBDC) they can turn your money off if you use too much carbon! No need for jail. Your money and internet connected electric car don’t work till tomorrow. Or till you vote the way we want.

Joe Rogan and Tulsi Gabbard get how terrifying this can truly be.

Some also predicted that the implosion of FTX was going to be used to help further this push to CBDC.
Former member of Congress Justin Amash spoke out against it:
A digital U.S. currency would be one of the most dangerous developments in history. When government can simply flip a switch to block all your transactions, it controls your entire life. We need a wall of separation between money and state.
The potential dangers to our freedom from such a system are incalculable. This is something the new Republican majority needs to get out in front of and not allow it to be steamrolled into place.
