WHAT WOULD COOL HAND LUKE & VIRGIL HILTS DO? by Jim Quinn for The Burning Platform

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”Patrick Henry

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”Samuel Adams

After observing the reaction of the America people, over the last two months, to a virus that will not kill 99.97% of them, I wondered how could a country created upon the blood and courage of patriot farmers and leaders who knew they would hang if their revolution failed, have degenerated into an infantilized nation of obedient slaves to un-Constitutionalized authoritarianism. It saddens me that a country borne by revolutionary means against an overbearing authoritarian monarchy has turned into a nation of bed-wetters curled up in their basements sucking their thumbs, begging government overlords to protect them from a virus.

I guess it shouldn’t be surprising after decades of government public school indoctrination where U.S. History facts have been usurped by feelings, diversity and gender agendas pushed by less than mediocre teachers. Government controlled education hasn’t taught children to think critically or question authority, but to obey rules and allow emotions to drive their actions. When multiple generations have been programmed to feel, rather than think, using panic and fear to make them do as they are told isn’t a difficult task. This pandemic reaction is a testament to their decades long propaganda and misinformation campaign. Rather than developing herd immunity the country developed a herd mentality.

I know “they” never let a crisis go to waste, but I’m unsure whether this crisis has been manufactured, and if so, why now and for what ultimate purpose. When in doubt regarding why events develop in a certain way, it is always a safe bet to follow the money. If a particular group receives out-sized benefits as a result of a crisis and the response to the crisis, you can be sure they heavily influenced the outcome. The short-term winners and losers from this plandemic are quite easy to recognize.

It isn’t the 1% who won, as many doctors and small business owners fall into this group and have been royally screwed. It’s the .1% billionaire crowd who have reaped the benefits, including Mr. Vaccine Man himself – Bill Gates. The richest men, running the largest corporations in the world, have increased their net worth by almost a half-trillion dollars in two months – with more to come, as their obedient lackey at the Fed continues to funnel billions into their pockets with his electronic printing press.


As the plebs were thrown $1,200 and an extra $600 of unemployment for a few months by their elected politicians and small businesses were thrown a life preserver attached to an anvil, these same corporately captured political operatives and Wall Street puppets at the Fed delivered trillions of immediate wealth to their true patrons – banking and corporate oligarchs. And to be clear, your government overlords were just giving you back the money they have stolen from your paycheck. But even that is a reach, since every dime handed out to the plebs has been borrowed from your children and grandchildren.

The imminent $30 trillion national debt and $200 trillion of unfunded liabilities is our gift to them. Jerome Powell received his marching orders from his billionaire banker bosses. He was instructed to make Ben Bernanke’s bailout in 2008/2009 look like bush league stuff. He has complied beyond all expectations, driving the stock market up by 32% from its March lows, as more than 38 million Americans lost their jobs and over 100,000 small businesses were forced out of business permanently.

It took Bernanke & Yellen four years of QE1, QE2, and QE3 debt creation to increase the Fed balance sheet by $2 trillion. Powell told Bennie and the troll to hold his beer, as he has taken the balance sheet up by more than $3 trillion in a few months, to $7 trillion. And he ain’t done. J-Po has his minions creating fiat at hypersonic speed, on track to breach $10 trillion by the end of the year.

He is illegally buying junk bonds in a blatant effort to keep horribly run connected companies who should be liquidated in bankruptcy from going bankrupt. Powell and his academic dweebs at the Fed don’t believe in the concept of creative destruction as a key ingredient of capitalism. They believe in creative zombie company creation and a zombie economy with zero interest rates and debt fabrication guaranteed to crash the system. Take one look at the following chart and try to convince yourself we aren’t in a death spiral as a nation.
