The American government has been playing Monopoly with the dollar, printing money at will. This leads to inflation, which devalues our buying power. In response to this, many are turning to cryptocurrencies, which are a decentralized monetary system. When you think about it, what could be more conservative than getting government out of our finances?
One of the consistent themes among both the libertarian and conservative movements is having a limited small government. Over the past century, our federal government has gotten so large and powerful that it has direct impact in virtually ever aspect of our lives. Often times, when discussing the financial impact that it has on us, we are referring to the outrageous tax rates we have in the United States. However, one of the other areas is in regards to the value of the dollar.
Ever since the United States dollar was taken off of the gold standard, we’ve seen our government manipulate our currency to their benefit. The result? Devaluing our dollar. Our dollar today is worth $0.05 compared to the dollar of 1913. That means that $20 today is equivalent to $1 back then!
This has been accomplished through currency manipulation by the Fed, through a combination of multiple strategies being employed at the same time. The most obvious manipulation tactic is simply by printing more money, which has been happening consistently over the past several decades. During the COVID-19 “plandemic” of 2020, we saw the emergency stimulus packages funded simply by printing money out of thin air.
Another huge aspect that has led to the devaluing of the dollar is with debt. Banks use this strategy for their own financial benefit, but the result is getting more cash in circulation, which devalues the dollar even more. You would think that banks would be lending out the money that they have in reserves. Instead, they are essentially creating money to lend, which is inflating the dollar without governmental involvement.
This is “legal” theft of the American people. The money that we earned is losing its buying power every day that goes by due to the currency manipulation. You are literally losing money by saving. How backwards is that? This is all the result of these sinister tactics by the powers-that-be.
Clearly, there is concern when you have big government and big corporations manipulating our currency. How do we reign this in?
It doesn’t appear like we have a legal recourse right now, especially in light of the establishment political crowd in Washington DC clearly showing that they have no intention of fixing the situation. We cannot rely on the very people creating this mess to fix the problem.
One opportunity would be to transition off of fiat currency and head over to cryptocurrency. Obviously, this is not financial advice and you should do your own research. However, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to seem to provide an opportunity to get government out of our financial lives. Through decentralization, we can regain control and personal responsibility for ourselves… which is the whole point to the freedom and liberty that our Founding Fathers intended for America.
Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next!
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles, it has now expanded into a podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
