This hit me today while waiting for my change at the convenience store. If the Corona virus sticks around for more than a week or two and really causes a catastrophic worldwide disruption (schools closed for a month like in Japan; businesses closed like in China; religious gatherings canceled like in Mecca), we could see the inevitable push towards a cashless society a lot more quickly than anyone could have predicted.

Weird...that same thought hit me earlier today as well...

How would the international drug trade operate, political bribery, black market arms - the stock and trade of government spooks? Are they going to send pallets of gifts cards to conflict areas?

I'm sure they can figure out a way to have private servers with the electronic cash on them.

WHO Urges People To Go 'Cashless' Because 'Dirty Banknotes Can Spread The Virus'

t looks like the Chinese started something...

Following reports that Beijing had "quarantined" dirty cash, the WHO warned on Monday that the virus could survive on banknotes, potentially spreading Covid-19 within communities, and across the world. To reduce the risk of being infected by money, the NGO advised citizens in countries struggling with outbreaks to favor digital payments when possible, the Daily Telegraph reported.

That the WHO is telling the public to avoid cash is hardly a surprise: research has found that coronaviruses have been found to live on surfaces for as long as 9 days.

During the statement, a WHO spokesman referenced a Bank of England study claiming that banknotes "can carry bacteria or viruses" and urged people to wash their hands. Other studies have shown that 90% of US $1 bills had bacteria present, and one Swiss study found that viruses had survive on the faces of Swiss francs for days.





The WHO's warnings follow the People's Bank of China last month started disinfecting currency deposited at Chinese banks using ultraviolet light, before quarantining the bills for a week before releasing them back into circulation.

Brits, and their fellow Europeans, should be increasingly careful as the virus spreads across Europe, the WHO warned, via the Telegraph:

"We know that money changes hands frequently and can pick up all sorts of bacteria and viruses," a spokesman told the Telegraph.
"We would advise people to wash their hands after handling banknotes, and avoid touching their face. When possible, it would also be advisable to use contactless payments to reduce the risk of transmission."​
Of course, that one of the world's major NGOs is seizing the opportunity to proclaim the virtues of 'paperless' money is hardly a surprise: the globalist push toward a 'cashless society' has been underway for years now, having had its biggest successes in Scandinavia. Sweden has gone virtually "cashless", and in such a short time, they've already confronted the many drawbacks of relying exclusively on digital money

As we noted previously, here is what happens next:
...the virus spreads throughout the US and Europe and governments respond the same way China's government has; martial law and full blown concentration camp culture. This would lead to civil war in the US because we are armed and many people will shoot anyone trying to put us into quarantine camps. Europe is mostly screwed.
The establishment then suggests that paper money be removed from the system because it is a viral spreader. China is already pushing this solution now.
Magically, we find ourselves in a cashless society in a matter of a year or two; which is what the globalists have been demanding for years. Everything goes digital, and thus even local economies become completely centralized as private trade dies.​
A viral outbreak is a significant danger to us all, but an even greater threat is the supposed cure. Trading our economic and social freedom in the name of stopping the coronavirus? No matter how deadly the bug, it's just not worth it.

I am not heavily into religion but not an atheist either. Not trying to get into a religion debate this is rather interesting given the current events.

The beast is rising:

"Revelation 13:16-17 And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; (17) and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name."

There are like 5,000 cryptocurriences for me to choose from, not to mention PM's. I think we'll be fine.

I was at the Casino yesterday and all I wanted to do was convert $50s the atm despenses into $100s. No big deal, right?

NOT TODAY.

It was one of the most uncomfortable exchanges I ever encountered at a casheirs window and I would never do it again.

First she demands my ID. Then she goes through a whole bunch of shit on her computer after she gets my ID. Then is off to another machine with my ID to do whatever she would not tell me.

I ask her, "All I needed was hundreds for fifties, whats the problem?"

She looks at me like I am some money laundering crook and gets extremely rude. (I do kinna look like a thug, so, maybe it was me)

But I felt that I was the crook with my own honest earned money and was sure they have to be careful in a Casino but she would not tell me at what amount she is required to do all this bullshit (this was less than $1,000, which is not alot of money today)

Long story short. THEY HATE CASH. Hate it with a passion and I assume it will go the way of gold/silver shortly.

Cashless sounds great until the power goes out. Or maybe they don't like what I post on GIM and my digits become lost. I'll pass and be selling everything I own and moving to another country before I give them that much control over my life.

No place will be exempt. But I want to be as far away from one of the Federal Reserve Banks as possible in the comming years.

Right now one is just a few blocks away from me and it seems to emanate from there out to the boonies.

They are building all these $1,400/mnth and up ten/thirty story apartment buildings near the financial districts of the city. If you lived here you would know exactly what I am talking about as they are popping up like mushrooms in the spring although most folks here cant afford that kind of rent. None of us could figure out why they are rushing to build all these new units?

Then one of my gimmer-type buddies filled me in, "When our society goes cashless they are gonna bankrupt all the middle managers currently living in their own single dwellings out in Chanhaussen and force them to relocate back into the city." These new units are all for the middle managers of the new cashless society.

They worked on these projects all winter and most of these units will be available later this year.

Not sure if it is true or not but none of this new construction made any sense until he told me that. Now they all make sense.

How do I carry digital currency around with me? Is this where I have to get that chip implant? Does gold then go to face value since it is basically worthless as money then and would probably be outlawed? Do the slaves sign up for slavery or make this their line in the sand?
I don't own a phone. I also don't think the Amish will take to kindly to cashless.

Let's say the government starts controlling everything to the degree that shelves at your local supermarket aren't properly stocked. So you decide to approach a farmer directly to buy some things. What's he gonna likely say yes to, inflated-monitored-government-digital? Some obscure crypto unit he's never heard of? Or, a piece of silver?

The government cant account for trillions of dollars of their own. I am skeptical that they could track and manage trillions or 100 of trillions worldwide.
Then we have the fact that Gov computers get hacked all the time. Cobine that with the fact that anything the government does turns to shit in short order and makes every problem worse and I have to say, the last thing I want is the government trying to manage peoples personal accounts.

Can’t account for it or won’t account for it?

A lot of them don't work outside of the US.
Snapscan. The whole of Beijing were using that when I was there in 2016, 2017 more so in 2018. Very hard there to operate with cash only. And the of course the app WeChat. I was forced to take 1/2 my fx on WeChat during my last visit.

Sounds like China is the "one world government" proving ground for the cashless society (mark of the Beast?)...

Worse, on purpose. Stolen. With lots of vested interest pooled out among those who are said to represent us.

The chicken farm has been taken over by the foxes.

And they won't stop until they've eaten us up...

Cashless society will make it easy for negative interest rates. Negative interest rates will continue to go negative until Wall Street can get every cent. Savers will be screwed and irresponsible lenders and borrowers will be rewarded.

when it is finally over even federal reserve will be obsolete as cash becomes obsolete. Carl posted on this before

HOW SPOOKY IS THIS……..

So...... was it an experiment that escaped into the wild??
Many people believe that this latest virus was a chemical weapon that got away.
This would be an interesting book to read.
Koontz wrote this book in 1981, read the circled/ highlighted bits make you wonder what they are up too. He even has the year 2020.​

HOW SPOOKY IS ...
attempting to vet the above 3 photos
it was discovered that the second and third
photos come from 2 different books

quote
The other book that appears in the posts is called “End of Days: Predictions and prophecies about the end of the world” co-written by “psychic and spiritual teacher” Sylvia Browne, and published in 2008. It claims that “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.”

The swamp copies stories. When you make up a crisis, you have to have some inspiration for your plot - in this case, an economic takedown and imposition of totalitarian control.

Sometimes I think the cabal communicates their plan in the open via song, written word, popular culture, etc. Just to rub our face in it.

$1400 is cheap! When I go to NYC I camp out in Jersey City. Cost me $800 a week for gas, tolls, PATH, subways and a spot to park a tent.

To sleep in my car cost more

A co-worker of mine told me there is a store in Flushing, NY (a predominantly Asian neighborhood in Queens, NYC) that is using a portable steam press set on high at the counter and treating the bills before accepting or giving the bills to customers.

Darn clever! Probably 99% effective against pathogens and 100% effective for winning customer loyalty at near zero dollar cost (someone in the family probably had one laying around).

Part of me wants to leave but part of me can't stop watching the train wreck in real time. I hate getting news on msm
