Be honest.

What I’m about to ask you may stretch the mental fabric beyond the point of comfort—this is not a question for the faint of heart. But I just have to ask:

What’s different between these two pictures?

#1 — From Everything You Might Not Know About Joe Biden's Record on Small Business sourced at Inc.com:

Joe Biden Is Running for President: Here's His Record on Small Businesses, Free College, and ...

#2 — From Former vice president Joe Biden gets a makeover before election sourced at the FloridianPress.com:

Former vice president Joe Biden gets a makeover before election

Okay, okay… I know it’s a silly question… but did you notice the ears?

Let’s take another run at it and compare a couple more pictures:

#3 — With lobes?

Barack Obama Finally Endorses Joe Biden for President

#4 — Without lobes?


At the risk of being weird, just one more set:

#5 — Biden with Obama (has lobes?):

Joe Biden claims Barack Obama repeatedly discouraged him from running for US president

#6 — Biden with Harris (has no lobes?):

Watch live: Biden, Harris appear together for first time since VP selection  | The Hill

What do you think?

Like I said, it’s hard to believe, but these pictures (and there are many, many more) seem to show two different people. As far as I know, it is not possible to switch back and forth between free dangling and attached earlobes. That would be a special trick.

But here’s the thing: Even if this was true—even if these are not the same person—what does that mean? What are the implications? What would you do?

Would you rush out and tell someone, “Hey, that guy’s not my president—he doesn’t even have ear lobes!”

Would you file a report with some government agency and ask them to look into it? Would you write a letter to your congressional representatives and demand an explanation? Would you blast it all over social media in hope spreading the word?

I have to say: I don’t recommend taking any such action!

Just sit with it for a bit. Flick back and forth. Do your own looking.

Then sit with it for a bit.

What does this mean?

It could mean that the aliens have landed and it’s time to put on the tinfoil hat. It could mean that every crazy thing you’ve ever heard just so happens to be the truth. It could mean that all the wild conspiracies are not conspiracies after all—or it could mean absolutely none of the above. It could simply be misinformation.

It could be a deep fake. It could be computer generated. It could be Russian propaganda. It could be wizardry and trickery of the highest kind!

That’s almost easier to believe, isn’t it?

Surely there is not some stranger dressing up and pretending to be president everyday.

Surely everyone would notice if this was not the same guy… well maybe not everybody.

Surely Joe Biden is the most popular president ever elected and people would care!

Surely the press would pick up on it and the media would make it known to the public.

Surely we’re not being fleeced by such a flagrant violation of public trust.

Surely my mind is playing tricks on me. This is not real, right? Or is it?

Well, don’t hold your breath.

I grabbed those pictures from a simple search on Duck-Duck-Go. Seeing a bunch of Biden pics side by side, it struck me that there was a noticeable difference. It disturbed me. I didn’t want to see what I was seeing. But I did—and guess what?

There’s not a damn thing you or I can do about. Obsessively search for clues as to what’s going on? Compare videos from then and now? Check-in with the fact-checkers? Sure, that might scratch the itch—might—but we still can’t know for sure.

In the end, you’ll simply have to choose what to believe: Yea or nae? Lobes or no lobes? And there are many similar choices, where knowing what’s true and right is inherently difficult. In each case, bottom line is we must chose what to believe.

What do you believe?

Is there a global cabal pulling the strings of the sock-puppet in oval office? Or is that just wild conspiracy that is closer to lunacy than actual reality?

Could the Agenda 2030 really be an effort to depopulate the earth and enslave humanity is global socialist state? Or is that too far fetched to even be considered?

Are there valid reasons to believe that “they” are intentionally destroying national economies to usher in a global digital currency? Or is that foolish speculation?

Is the AI actually being used for social listening, sentinel surveillance, and behavioral manipulation? Or am I just a crackpot who reads too many reports from the WHO?

You decide.

Friends, there is a lot going on in the world. All we can do is take it one breath at a time, so let’s step out the rabbit hole for a fast and furious Friday foray.

Here’s everything that I didn’t talk about this week that felt worthy of mention:

  • Former Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has left the Democrat party, declaring that they are an “elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness” who are obsessed with pushing “anti-white racism.”

    • While that’s all great, many are quick to point out that she’s no conservative.

  • The J6 committee has formally voted to subpoena Donald Trump—though it’s likely to be challenged, drug out past the midterms, and amount to nothing.

    • In reality, this is just a political stunt to keep the Left all fired up.

  • Biden has been caught red-handed begging OPEC to interfere with our elections, and when they brought it to light he accused them of being in bed with Russia and threatened retaliation.

    • For the record, this is the same exact reason Democrats impeached Trump.

  • In other news, China has set up their own police force in as many as 50 different countries around the globe, including in NYC, which has prompted a congressional inquiry into why there are Chinese police in the U.S. of A.

    • Of course, these police stations are unofficial and operate under the radar.

But the biggest news this week brings us directly back to what we were talking about yesterday, which is the destruction of the U.S. dollar and the push for digital currency.

In an article titled How To Resist CBDCs—5 Ways You Can Opt Out of This Dystopian Future, renowned international investor Nick Giambruno has this to say:

“There’s an excellent chance governments worldwide will soon force their citizens to use central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

CBDCs enable all sorts of horrible, totalitarian things.

They allow governments to track and control every penny you earn, save, and spend. They are a powerful tool for politicians to confiscate and redistribute wealth as they see fit.

Does that sound familiar? He goes on to say:

“Undoubtedly, CBDCs will be paired with a sort of social credit system. Such a system is already in place in China today. In the West, it’s likely to come in a different flavor. Perhaps CBDCs will be paired with an ESG score.

Did you commit a thought crime on social media? Or perhaps you read too many politically incorrect articles online? Did you exceed your monthly meat consumption allowance? Then expect some financial punishment thanks to the CBDCs.

CBDCs are, without a doubt, an instrument of enslavement. They represent a quantum leap backward in human freedom.

Unfortunately, they’re coming soon.”

Like we learned yesterday, the FedNow program is set be unleashed in 2023. In other words, they will be moving ahead with this agenda whether you’re ready or not—and the very same thing could be said for every other aspect of the globalist’s schemes.

We’re just peasants.

In the collective mind of the global cabal, you are just a soulless hackable animal.

They really don’t care if they wipe our your retirement, upend your life, and completely destroy life as you know it. In fact, that is precisely their plan. They are hellbent on taking down America because of everything we stand for.

Don’t think that it can’t happen! Consider these headlines:

UK Govt Close to Collapse as Chancellor Fired After 38 Disastrous Days in Office...

Nuclear war could spark global famine and claim more than 5 Billion lives…

Or this screenshot from the top of DrudgeReport:

The truth is, regimes are set to fall all around the world. That’s all part of the plan.

By the way…

Did you catch the fact that Biden just extended the covid emergency? It turns out the pandemic is not over and officials are bracing for a spike in cases. Their solution? More testing and vaccinations. If you want to survive the winter wave, they claim, you’d better get boosted before you go out trick-or-treating.

But let’s cut through the fluff: The Biden administration extended the emergency so they could continue their reckless spending and ship out 1 Billion free at-home tests.

What do you think that will do to the cases? Are they anticipating a winter surge, or are they creating a winter surge? What are the chances they’re doing this on purpose?

Is it just a coincidence that this is set to roll out just after the midterms? What might a massive surge in cases—and all the accompanying headlines—do for the politicians? Perhaps justify another push for vaxx and mask mandates? Perhaps prompt calls for more lockdowns and social distancing? How might that affect the economy?

On the bright side, they’ve already told us that the pandemic is good for the planet, so the utter destruction of our way of life is not a total loss. But the Great Reset is far from over and the global cabal is pushing us forward harder than ever.

There’s no time to lose.

If we want to save our country and preserve our way of life, this midterm election may be the most important election in American history. Now is the time for patriots to rise up and vote for sanity, to replace the entrenched establishment that seeks to gain power and prestige by playing ball with the global cabal.

As EU leaders are more openly admitting, we are facing a perfect storm:

“The world we are facing is a world of radical uncertainty.

The speed and scope of change is exceptional. We should not try to deny it. We should not try to resist it. It would be a futile effort. We have to accept it and adapt to it, prioritizing flexibility and resilience.

But uncertainty is the rule. Events that one could imagine that they will never happen, they are happening one after the other.

At this pace, the black swan will be the majority. It will not be white swans – all of them will be black – because one after the other, things have happened that had a very low probability of happening, nevertheless they happened, and they had a strong impact and certainly they happened.”

And they will keep happening. What’s the solution? Understand the battlefield:

“Communication is our battlefield: we fight in communication.”

The same can be said for both sides of this ideological battle. While the politicians understand the power of polished propaganda, We the People are just waking up to the importance of unabashedly speaking the truth, sharing perspective, and spreading the powerful message that freedom is the most good for the most people.

Says the EU official:

“We provide you with materials and I have the feeling that you do not transmit the message strongly enough. 

I need my delegations to step up on social media, on TV, in debates.

Retweet our messages, our [European] External Action Service materials. Certainly, my blog, which is the everyday “consigna”...

I need you to be much more engaged in this battle of narratives. It is not something secondary. It is not just winning the wars by sending tanks, missiles, and troops. It is a big battle: who is going to win the spirits and the souls of people?

This is their call to action: Share the narrative far and wide, because that is how they win the hearts and minds of the masses.

Let’s test the strategy: Will you step up and share The Torch Report with a friend?

Share The Torch Report

I would be honored if you do. Have a wonderful weekend!
