vast majority of the world's assets are owned by just
two investment firms - BlackRock and the Vanguard Group.
Combined, they have ownership in nearly 90% of all S&P
500 firms, and through their investment holdings they
secretly wield monopoly control over all industries
now you may be familiar with the World Economic Forum
slogan, "By 2030, you will own nothing." To that end,
BlackRock and other investment firms are buying up every
single-family home they can find, making cash offers of
20% to 50% above asking price
Buying a home has been part of the American dream since
the founding of this country. It's been a significant
part of financial success, security and freedom. George
Washington declared that "Private Property and freedom
are inseparable." Now, lower to middle class Americans
are being intentionally positioned to become permanent
renters, which means they cannot build equity
is wealth redistribution from the low- and middle-class
to the upper, and it's in line with plans for societal
reorganization described under banners such as The Great
Reset, Build Back Better, Agenda 21 and the 2030 Agenda
for Sustainable Development
These agendas all work together toward the same goal,
which is a global monopoly on ownership and wealth, with
a clear separation of the haves and have nots; the
owners and the owned; the rulers and the ruled; the
elite and the serfs

In short, the idea that
there is competition in the marketplace is a clever illusion.
Buying Up Homes
By now you may be familiar with the
World Economic Forum slogan,
"By 2030, you will
To that end, BlackRock
and other investment firms are currently buying up every
single-family home they can find, making cash offers of 20% to 50%
above-asking price. 2
Depending on where you live, you may have noticed that homes are
selling within hours of being listed, making house hunting nearly
Home buyers in my home state of Florida are certainly
experiencing this phenomenon.
Investment firms are also buying up entire neighborhoods.
As just one example, a
124-home neighborhood in Conroe, Texas, was bought for $32 million -
20% above listing - by Fundrise LLC, a real estate crowdfunding
company, which then turned around and made all the homes into
single-family rentals (SFRs). 3
According to investment experts, SFRs are "exceptionally attractive
investment assets," and this is one aspect driving the trend.
Demographic changes such as millennials starting families and
affordability constraints are also said to be driving factors.
But that really does not
fully explain what's happening.
Against Private Property
Buying a home has been part of the American dream since the founding
of this country.
It's been a significant
part of financial success and security. Now, lower to middle class
Americans are being intentionally positioned to become permanent
renters, which means they cannot build equity.
Their ability to purchase
a home, even if they can afford it, is being stripped from them by
companies that can outbid them with cash offers.
In a recent episode of "60 Minutes", Lesley
Stahl actually did a good job exposing why home prices are going
through the roof:
Lack of new construction and corporate
landlords contributing to
It's not just that these
investment companies can snap up homes with the click of a button,
but they're also artificially driving up prices of both homes and
For example, rents in Jacksonville, Florida, rose an average of 31%
in 2021, and Austin, Texas, saw rents jump by 40%.
The reason appears to be
We're not building
What is being built is being bought by
corporate landlords at above-market prices...
Corporate real estate
investors don't even look at the homes they're bidding on, and
typically waive inspections.
The home can be in any
shape and sell within hours.
As Stahl notes,
"this puts first-time
home buyers at a serious disadvantage," as they have many hoops
to jump through before they can secure a loan and close the
we're currently 4 million homes short, and that shortage continues
One real estate
investment firm interviewed by Stahl states that they list, on
average, 200 to 300 homes for rent each week, and receive 10,000
leasing inquiries weekly.
As noted in a tweet by Cultural Husbandry: 5
"This is wealth
redistribution, and it aren't rich people's wealth that is
It's normal American
middle class, salt of the earth wealth heading into the hands of
the world's most powerful entities and individuals. The
traditional financial vehicle [is] gone forever.
Home equity is the main financial element that middle class
families use to build wealth, and BlackRock, a federal reserve
funded financial institution is buying up all the houses to make
sure that young families can't build wealth...
This is a fundamental
reorganization of society."
Indeed, and it's right in
line with plans for societal reorganization described under banners
such as The Great Reset, Build Back Better, Agenda 21 and the 2030
Agenda for Sustainable Development (see video below). 6,7
These agendas all work together toward the same goal, which is a
global monopoly on ownership and wealth, with a clear separation of
the haves and have nots:
Development' Agenda is a Plan to Enslave You
The war against private property goes back decades.
In 1976, during the first
United Nations' Conference on Human Settlements, called Habitat 1,
8 the U.N. stated, in Item 10: 9
"Land... cannot be
treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and
subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.
ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and
concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social
injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the
planning and implementation of development schemes.
Public control of
land use Is therefore indispensable."
The idea, apparently, is
that private investment firms like
Vanguard and BlackRock can
prevent social injustice by buying up all private property and
renting it out.
This way, no one (except their investors) can build
Property and freedom
This is what "equity" is all about, and it has nothing to do with
"Social equity" is
incredibly unfair, as it strips those with talent and drive of the
ability to make something out of themselves.
Property and Freedom are Inseparable
The UN's Human Settlements agenda,
Agenda 21 and the
Sustainable Development agenda are in direct conflict with the
Bill of Rights and the founding principles of this country.
"Private Property and
freedom are inseparable."
Similarly, John Adams
"Property must be
secure, or liberty cannot exist."
In 1992 at the Earth
Summit, under-secretary-general of the Convention on Climate Change
and executive director of the UN Environment Program, Maurice
Strong, stated that: 10
and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving
high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and
convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and
workplace air-conditioning, and suburban housing, are not
If meat consumption,
frozen foods, fossil fuel use, home appliances, air conditioning and
single-family homes are "unsustainable," it stands to reason that
the goal of any sustainable development scheme is to eliminate all
of those things.
This is easier done in
some countries than in others.
As explained by the Cook
Country News Herald back in 2012: 11
does not agree to all these United Nations schemes to steal our
property and destroy our economy, they are passed by fiat,
executive orders, proclamations, directives and generous grants
given to local communities..."
technocratic elite are trying to circumvent the U.S. Constitution
and Bill of Rights through various means, such as the effort to make
the United Nations and the World Health Organization into global
centers of power, with member states being forced to comply with
whatever agendas they set, thereby undermining national sovereignty...
As explained in the Agenda 21 video above,
Agenda 21 doesn't stop at
restricting private home and land ownership.
It also includes:
In short, the global
elite want you to believe that the only way to save the planet is
for you to be their slave.
It's a tragic ultimate
outcome for sure. If they are successful, virtually all of your
constitutional rights and freedoms will be eliminated.
Who Owns the
Farmland and Dictates Food Policy?
Private home ownership isn't the only thing threatened by the
encroaching monopoly of elitists.
Bill Gates is now one of
the largest private owners of U.S. farmland, 12 and he
also wields unrivaled power over global food policy, 13
as detailed in the AGRA Watch report, 14 "The Man Behind
the Curtain - The Gates Foundation's Influence on the UN Food Systems
While Gates is just one man, his clout is significantly leveraged
and magnified by the fact that he funds such a large number of
companies and organizations that they do his bidding on the sly.
When you see long lists
of groups, you automatically think there are many players in the
game when, in fact, Gates is the singular thread running through
most or all of them.
In its 2014 report, 15 "Three Examples of Problems with
Gates Foundation Grants," AGRA Watch highlights why Gates' massive
investments in global food production have failed to solve any of
the very real problems we face.
First and foremost, many
of the solutions that he backs are "Band-Aid solutions" that in fact
worsen the root problems.
Examples include the funding of the development of genetically
engineered (GE) foods designed to be higher in certain nutrients.
The problem is that these crops then end up replacing local
diversity with just a few GE varieties that don't even take local
conditions into account.
So, by pushing for
"fortified" crop varieties, malnutrition actually deepens, as
biodiversity is reduced.
"a stubborn focus on
yield" is at odds with research showing that low yield or
insufficient production is not causing world hunger.
"There is ample
evidence today that the problem instead is poverty and lack of
access, which is deepened by destruction of local food systems
and commercialization of food," AGRA Watch notes.
"Grants by the Gates' Foundation and AGRA continue to focus on
yield, priming Africa for a system suited to the needs of the
profit-seeking, yield-oriented commercial farmer rather than the
peasant or small farmer producing diverse crops for a local
can be found in the AGRA Watch article 16 "Philanthrocapitalism:
The Gates Foundation's African Programs Are Not Charity," published
December 2017, in which philanthrocapitalism is described as,
"an attempt to use
market processes to do good," but which is inherently
problematic "as markets are ill-suited to producing socially

Gates is also invested in
the synthetic beef industry, and not surprisingly, he's been calling
on Western nations to transition to a 100% fake beef diet 17
- all in the name of 'saving' the environment.
It's the same argument
pushed by Agenda 21 and the rest of the sustainable development
Medicine are Completely Controlled
Mainstream media and the pharmaceutical industry are two other
important areas that have been taken over by a monopoly-centered
Both industries are
overwhelmingly owned by BlackRock and Vanguard, 18 so to
think the mainstream media will report on the truth is foolhardy to
say the least, especially as it pertains to health and medicine.
Allopathic medicine, by the way, has been controlled by those in the
grip of greed ever since
John D. Rockefeller founded the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in 1901 and campaigned to
eliminate naturopathic medicine, which was the norm, in order to
replace it with
petroleum-based patented drugs...
Anything that couldn't be patented was abolished and known cures
were dismissed as quackery.
this the same way Gates and other technocrats do it today - through
control of the media.
WHO Treaty is
'COVID Wolf in Sheep's Clothing'
The WHO's pandemic treaty is perhaps the greatest threat we've faced
so far, and will go a long way toward
implementing The Great Reset.
As I noted in a March
2022 article, 20 the pandemic treaty is a direct threat
to a nation's sovereignty to make decisions for itself and its
citizens, and will erode democracy everywhere, if enacted.
May 24, 2021, the European Council announced it supported the
establishment of an international Pandemic Treaty, under which the
WHO would have the power to replace the constitutions of individual
nations with its own constitution under the banner of,
preparedness and response." 21
March 3, 2022, the
Council authorized the opening of negotiations for an international
The infographic below, sourced from the European
Council's website, 22 summarizes the process:
There's simply no question that this treaty is part of the
globalists' plan to monopolize health systems worldwide, 23
and a way for them to force mandatory vaccinations, vaccine
passports and digital identities on the uncooperative masses.
Any pandemic-related decision the WHO makes would supersede national
and state laws.
health-related decisions could come under the WHO's jurisdiction, as
the stated goals of the treaty include not only future pandemic
response but also a stronger framework for health with the WHO as
the coordinating authority on global health matters more generally.
Director-general of the WHO,
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has
also gone on record stating that his "central priority" as
director-general of the WHO is to push the world toward universal
health coverage. 25
As noted by Dr. Peter
Breggin, 26 referring to Ghebreyesus' address to the
WHO Executive Committee on January 24, 2022, in which he spelled out
his global health plan,
"The spirit of
Communism can be felt throughout the document."
WEF - 'World

The WEF's 2010 "Global Redesign" report 27 argues that
the world is best managed by a self-selected coalition of
international bodies such as
the UN and

They've slowly but

altering it to serve their own ends...
Technology, which is the
foundation upon which technocracy rests, has allowed this
self-selected group of megalomaniacs to thrive and build their power
structure in the shadows.
Only now are they
starting to really show their true colors, their desire for absolute
power and control.
