Sure, I know it’s easier. Just whip out one of your many credit cards, insert the chip and boom, you’re good. They don’t even look at the signature anymore. They don’t care if it’s stolen or not, they know the banks will cover it. Actually you cover it because the cost of fraud is built into the cost of the cards (fees, interest rates charged, etc.). Did you know that even EBT cards are run through VISA?
We’ve been on a speeding train to eliminate cash for a long time. When the plan-demic hit they rolled out the “tap your card” feature. Venmo (owned by PayPal), ApplePay, Zelle, CashApp, and others make it a nearly effortless and thoughtless way to pay your rent, split a dinner tab or send birthday money to a friend. But ALL of those platforms are sucking up data and information about you and how and where you spend you money. Not only are they are making money from it, they have been building the control grid that is slowly (or maybe not so slowly any more) taking away our freedoms.
You only have to look at China to see how they utilize the control grid. The citizens of China are protesting not being able to access their bank accounts. Their ATMs are shut off. The Chinese Communist Party through AI (artificial intelligence), identified protestors and immediately their COVID health codes turned red meaning citizens lost access to public transport and spaces such as restaurants and malls, as well as the right to travel across the country. Trust me, we are not far behind. Remember the AI (facial recognition) instituted at Hawaii airports during COVID? Maybe you didn’t know, but they did.
The central banks are in agreement. They want a digital currency (Central Bank Digital Currency -CBDC) run by the government (Mr. Global). Once they do it, all other forms of money transactions will be non-existent. How do we stop this or at least slow it down. USE CASH! Don’t use these PayApps, QR codes, or credit cards any more than you absolutely have to. And guess what? You’ll spend less money when the cold, hard cash is actually passing through your fingers.
Remember, we’re all in this together! Oh, except for anyone and everyone on the left. They don’t get arrested or prosecuted, and certainly not thrown in jail without any due process as Trump supporters scooped up after Jan. 6th were. The FBI and the DOJ have become Democrat party enforcers, not law enforcement agencies. They are tools of the Biden Administration to punish anyone opposing them. Wake-up sheeple! It’s time for the Great Awakening.
